Woman airlifted after crash For state’s

spending, expect ‘a lot of changes’

Rescuers cut roof off SUV to free injured passenger BY SHELLEY SMITH

Todd Watson, assistant pastor of The River Church of God, was getting ready to turn onto U.S. 52 off Anthony Road when he heard a crash and saw an airborne vehicle fly across the intersection toward his church van. The SUV rolled onto its side, hitting a utility pole and snapping it at the base. Watson backed into a driveway and ran over to the crumpled vehicle. Louise Dulkoski, 79, of China Grove, and Doris Dick, 73, of Salisbury were inside the SUV, a Nissan Rogue. Dulkoski, the driver, was able to get out of the car with the help of Watson and another man. But Dick was trapped, and Watson said she looked like she was going to pass out. Watson said he grabbed her hand and prayed with her, trying to keep her awake until emergency responders arrived. “They found out I was a pastor and they asked me to pray for them, and I said, ‘Well, I’ve already done that. God is already here,’ ” Watson said. Members of the Rowan County Rescue Squad, Rockwell WATSON and Rockwell Rural fire departments worked to stabilize the SUV. The broken utility pole leaned on the SUV, the only thing that kept it from falling onto the highway. Rescuers cut off the roof of the SUV to free Dick, and then they put her in an ambulance. She was then flown to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center where she was in stable condition Friday night. Dulkoski was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center for minor injuries, and remained there Friday night. Dulkoski and Dick were traveling toward Salisbury on U.S. 52 shortly after 11 a.m. Friday. Linda Brown, 61, driving a Honda Odyssey, drove across the highway from Crescent Road

The three state legislators who represent Rowan County know their first year in a Republican majority won’t be smooth sailing. N.C. Reps. Fred Steen and Harry Warren, along with N.C. Sen. Andrew Brock, focused on the state’s budget and economy at Friday’s legislative breakfast sponsored by the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce. Brock was the first — and certainly not the last — to bring up the state’s projected $3.7 billion shortfall in a $20 billion budget. “We’re going to look at this year’s budget before we really start on next year... just to see if we can make some cost savings now that will pay off in the future,” Brock said. “But when we have numbers like that, there’s going to be a lot of changes.” He said those changes could affect the fields of education and health care, which make up 80 BROCK percent of the state budget. They also could come from general government expenses, which only account for 2 percent of the budget, and consolidating government functions. To help North Carolina recover from the economic recession, Brock said he wants to allow temporary taxes to expire and lower the regulatory and tax burden on businesses. “We can weather this storm,” he said. “We’re going to get through it and make some tough choices.” Steen also said he wants to look at tax reform. He would prefer changing to a system based on a consumption tax instead of an income tax. “I believe that if we’re going to really solve the big problem, we’re going to have to empower business, not government, to lead the econom-

Linda Brown, driver of the Honda Odyssey, was not injured in the accident Friday, but she was very shaken up. Brown was cited for failure to yield the right of way,


SALUTE FROM 1A “He waited until the funeral party had left and was there with just the maintenance guys. Apparently, they said, he stood surrendering honors for at least 20 minutes with tears flowing down his face onto his white shirt ... It left an impact on the workers, as it did us.” The photograph of the veteran’s salute is a simple, yet poignant moment. Susan McClamrock cried when she saw it, and she has made it a mission to find the older gentleman, who wore suspenders and had a cane. “If I could ever meet him, I would just like to thank him for the way in which he honored James’ life as a fallen hero,” Susan says. “I’d like to listen to him about his past service — we owe him that much.” Susan posted the photograph on her Facebook page, and it prompted more than 140 responses. Many of her friends are posting the photograph, too, and asking around for information on whom the man in the cemetery might be. “As an old vet and a three-star, blue star Dad, I can tell you exactly who he is,” William Burlingame said in his post. “He is a veteran. He did what all vets should and would do. He just honored a fallen brother.” As of Friday, the veteran’s identity remained a mystery. “Because he didn’t know James, I wonder what he was thinking,” Susan McClamrock says. “Was it a hurtful reminder of his service as his brothers lay dying, or did he lose a child in war and it triggered sadness in his heart?” It’s been a tough week for Susan McClamrock. She visited her son’s grave Monday, knowing that had he survived his mission to Iraq he would be coming home on

R&R. Cemetery workers tell her that people visit James’ grave all the time, often leaving nickels and quarters. She thinks the quarters are to signify his being part of the 25th Infantry, based out of the famous Schofield Barracks in Hawaii. James McClamrock, 22, was one of two U.S. soldiers killed Sept. 7 at a military base about 130 miles north of Baghdad. He was resting between security missions when a man dressed as an Iraqi soldier opened fire on his unit, killing McClamrock, Sgt. Philip C. Jenkins of Decatur, Ind., and wounding nine others. McClamrock and Jenkins were the first two soldiers killed after President Barack Obama declared an end to combat operations in Iraq the week before. There were nearly 50,000 troops in Iraq as of Aug. 31 last year, and those soldiers remaining are supposed to be training Iraqi forces, providing security for State Department missions and helping Iraqi forces hunt down insurgents. McClamrock is survived by his wife of two years, Shannah; his parents, Susan and the Rev. Mark McClamrock, pastor of Concord Associate Reform Presbyterian Church; and five siblings. James, the second oldest of the children, grew up in the Hendersonville and Statesville areas. The McClamrock family had moved to Troutman in Iredell County in 2001. They now live in Concord. About a year before his death, James McClamrock took leave from his job as a Charlotte-Douglas Airport baggage screener and enlisted in the Army. He told family members it was what God wanted him to do. Hundreds attended his Sept. 17 funeral and the 21gun salute, graveside goodbye. It was the largest crowd

ever at Carolina Memorial Park. Susan McClamrock has some reservations about trying to track down the old soldier from the cemetery. She wants to protect his privacy, but she also wants to thank him. “The picture says a million words to us — honor, pride, patriotism, sadness from losing a brother, respect and so many more,” Susan says. “It honored us as a family to know that someone would honor James quietly without wanting to be admired.” Susan McClamrock can be contacted though her Facebook page or e-mail susan.mcclamrock@ssa. gov.

He said government growth must be limited to what the private sector can support, and right now it is exceeding that level. “We need to begin the process of restoring sound, sensiSTEEN ble solutions to how we govern,” Steen said. Government is the largest employment sector in North Carolina, he said, and the average income is higher than private employment. “I understand that public employees pay taxes just like private sector employees,” Steen said. “However, it is only the private sector employees and business owners who are creating wealth.” As the newest member of the delegation to Raleigh, Warren will be sworn in on the first day of the 2011 legislative session Wednesday. He said he wants to help make North Carolina competitive for businesses and residents, balancing lower tax rates with increased revenue from a larger tax base. “This would involve ... relieving the tax burden not only on corporations, but on small businesses and working families,” Warren said. “We need to be able to put WARREN money back into pockets of people so they can go out in the economy and buy the services and goods that will spur the economy.” Warren said the legislature should look at lowering the corporate gains tax and personal income tax, and the corporate income tax should be

Questions about school funding and the education lottery also were asked. All of the legislators agreed that the state should stop taking lottery distributions to balance the budget. Warren said he supports funding the classroom as much as possible, and classroom teachers are vital to providing quality public education. “I don’t know how many superintendents we need, and I don’t know how much they need to get paid,” Warren said. “I would look at that before even thinking about cutting teachers.” Brock agreed that the first priority for both K-12 and higher education should be funding the classroom. He said he would look at overhead costs to see what can be trimmed there. Contact reporter Karissa Minn at 704-797-4222.

Continuing to work with community colleges to provide training programs could bring down unemployment, he said. Education and workforce development can help lower unemployment, Warren said, so it’s important to continue working with community colleges to provide retraining programs. After the legislators finished speaking, Burt Brinson, federal and state affairs chairman for the Chamber of Commerce, asked them questions submitted by Chamber members. All three legislators were asked what they envisioned for the 12th Congressional district, but they largely deferred to Brock, who will be vice chair of the redistricting committee. “We’ll be going around the state to get input from citizens all over, because we want to get as many people involved as possible,” Brock said. “We will make the districts as fair, legal and compact as possible.” Warren said District 12’s design — along with the intent behind it — is “an embarrass-

DMV files charges over shady vehicle sales RALEIGH — The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles’ License and Theft Bureau arrested two suspects in Wadesboro Thursday night in at least 19 cases of vehicle theft and cloning, including cases in Rowan County. More than 20 inspectors with the bureau took part in the six-month investigation that covered 10 counties. The suspects, Marcus Lawrence Bradley and Marlayna Jerkeisha Stafford, both of 608 Creekridge Drive, Monroe, were arrested at 9:30 p.m. in the parking lot of Walmart at 2004 U.S. Hwy. 74 W., and charged with attempting to sell a BRADLEY stolen cloned vehicle to undercover inspectors. Bradley, 28, used the alias Laurence Oliver Jackson IV on counterfeit titles and on a South Carolina driver license. He was charged with 15 felony STAFFORD counts ranging from possessing and receiving a stolen vehicle to identity theft, and altering and forging a vehicle title and serial number.

here was an air of excitement Friday in Building 42 at the W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center. Parked out front were two Richard Childress race cars. Friday was the first time a racing team has been to the Salisbury VA. Inside, a steady stream of veterans walked or rolled through the atrium, having the chance to meet RCR drivers Ty Dillon, Austin Dillon and Joey Coulter. In addition, members of the Helping Hands Pit Crew for Clint Boyer’s No. 33 race car were there, dressed in their signature red and yellow suits, signing autographs and visiting with the veterans as they came through the line. Pit crew members there were Dustin Necaise, rear-tire changer, Matt Kreuter, rear-tire carrier, Austin Craven, front-tire carrier, Bryan Smith, gas man, and Nick Terry, jackman. “It is nice they come out and do this for the vets,” said Roger Archambault, a veteran of the Vietnam War. U.S. Marine Corps member John Harrison agreed. “It is a great thing for them to take time off to spend with the vets,” he said. “It really lifts our spirits.” RCR racing members found their way to the VA through the efforts of several people. Melissa Yost, a part-time nurse for the VA’s Rural Health program, is married to pit-crew member Jason Yost. She asked him if they could visit the veterans. The Rev. Richard Payne, team chaplain for RCR, helped work out the details. “RCR is a big supporter of veterans,” said Payne. “We have hosted vets at the shop and Richard Childress would have been here if he hadn’t been working with a sponsor today. We would like to come on a regular basis.” Payne added that Clint Boyer

NEWTON (AP) — The stepmother of a disabled girl who died under mysterious circumstances is set to be arraigned in a North Carolina jail on charges of being married to more than one man. The Catawba County district attorney’s office says 42year-old Elisa Baker, 42, will be arraigned Friday in the jail where she’s being held on charges of obstructing justice in the investigation of her stepdaughter’s death. Prosecutors say she married the father of 10-year-old Zahra Baker while still married to another man. Zahra was reported missing in October, and police later found her remains. No one has been charged in her death. Adam Baker is free on bond while facing unrelated charges. He had a scheduled court appearance in Newton on Friday, but it was postponed until April.

Community colleges move to bar threats RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s community college board is moving ahead with a rule allowing schools to refuse admission to students who campus officials consider a threat. The board voted Friday to give schools in the country’s third-largest community college system the ability to bar students who appear to pose an imminent and significant threat. Disabilities groups and the American Civil Liberties Union say they’ll monitor how the policy is applied. They say they worry people with mental and physical disabilities will be hurt. Community colleges board member Stuart Fountain says the change is an attempt to balance safety with the opendoor nature of the two-year schools. The state’s 58 campuses already have the authority to suspend or expel students to protect others.

Duke lacrosse accuser won’t face retrial DURHAM (AP) — North Carolina prosecutors say they won’t try a second time to bring a felony arson charge against the woman who prosecutors said falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape. Durham Assistant District Attorney Mark McCullough said Friday his office will not retry Crystal Mangum. A Durham County jury last month deadlocked on the first-degree arson charge that could have led to Mangum being sentenced to prison for more than seven years. Mangum was convicted of contributing to child abuse. Police said Mangum piled her boyfriend’s clothes into a bathtub during an argument and lit them on fire while her three children and two police officers were in her home. The state attorney general’s office concluded there was no credible evidence Mangum was attacked at a 2006 Duke lacrosse team party.

Teacher group supports lifting charter cap RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s chief teacher lobbying organization is suggesting it won’t oppose lifting the current limit on charter schools as Republicans take over the Legislature next week. North Carolina Association of Educators President Sheri Strickland said this week on its web site the group will support efforts to lift the cap as long as they ensure charter schools give all of their students access to a quality education. The association opposed raising or ending the cap while Democrats led the General Assembly. Republicans have said eliminating the cap will be among their first priorities. The News & Observer of Raleigh first reported Strickland’s statement, which said the association didn’t have a specific expansion number for charter schools.

Man dead after shooting in arrest attempt DURHAM (AP) — Investigators in Durham are trying to figure out what happened after an exchange of gunfire with police left a man dead. U.S. Marshals were trying to make an arrest in Durham on Thursday night on a suspect wanted for sex charges. Police say the suspect was believed to be visiting people at the house. Durham police say someone inside fired shots, and task force members returned fire. Authorities have not identified the man who was killed or said whether he was the person being sought. Police say the dead man will be fingerprinted to try to determine his identity.

Tea party rep may back higher debt limit Vote may be offset by winning spending concessions RALEIGH (AP) — A tea party candidate who is now North Carolina’s newest members of Congress said Friday she may vote to raise the nation’s debt so long as lawmakers can begin making at least some substantial budget cuts. Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers said in an interview that she doesn’t want to raise the debt ceiling. But she acknowledged that Congress might need to soon approve the increase in how much the government can borrow to ensure that seniors and others don’t lose the benefits they need. Voters swept Ellmers and other tea party candidates into office just two months ago in part because of outrage about the size and growth of the nation’s debt. Ellmers wants to see at least $100 billion in cuts as a starting point. The government is on track to spend $1.3 trillion more this year than it takes in. “We’ve got to be able to prove to the American people that we’re just not arbitrarily raising the debt ceiling so that we can do some more big

spending,” Ellmers said. Federal debt has nearly doubled in the past six years. When President George W. Bush began his second term in January 2005, the debt stood at $7.6 trillion. It jumped to $10.6 trillion by the day President Barack Obama was inaugurated and is now around $14 trillion. The current maximum the government can borrow is $14.3 trillion, and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has warned that the government will surpass that mark in the coming months and that failure to increase borrowing authority would be “a catastrophe.” Republicans have vowed to cut $100 billion from domestic spending this year, and Ellmers believes that is a minimum point to begin. She didn’t have a list of specific cuts to target but said lawmakers were working on identifying areas to trim, with particular focus on government waste. Ellmers, who began her term in office earlier this month, also said Friday that she will continue to sometimes carry a concealed weapon when she’s in North Carolina, something she did even before Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head dur-

ing an event in Tucson. Ellmers said she’s had the weapon for about a year. “I did that really because I just felt it was very important to protect myself and to have that with me,” Ellmers said. “I will continue to carry it with me when I feel it will be a good thing — not every day, but I’ll have it with me every now and then.”

held in North Carolina’s largest city. “I think it indicates that they feel comfortable coming here, that they feel comfortable espousing their doctrine here,” Nantambu said. “There’s a lot of racism here, and people feel comfortable with that racism.” Mayor Anthony Foxx said Thursday he doesn’t believe the group selected Charlotte because of some undercurrent of racism, and he doesn’t think the decision says anything about the city. “They weren’t recruited, I can tell you that,” Foxx said.

Golden rule in Gold Hill Laurels to the example of forgiveness set by First Baptist Church of Gold Hill. After a man was arrested on charges of stealing items from parked cars at the church, the congregation and Pastor Toney Parsons said they had forgiven the suspect, who was being held in the Rowan County Jail with his wife, also charged. Forgiveness, of course, is what the Bible teaches us to practice, yet that divine inclination is easily thwarted by the human impulse toward “an eye for an eye” vengeance and retribution. While actions inevitably have consequences, it’s best to let the judicial system sort that out, for several reasons. Revenge may bring short-term satisfaction, but a growing body of research suggests a forgiving spirit has longterm benefits, including lower blood pressure and a stronger immune system. Forgive and forget? Not necessarily — more like, forgive and move on. • • •

Dart to an increase in workplace fatalities in North Carolina last year, including two in Rowan County. The 48 fatal accidents statewide is a 40 percent increase from 2009, and labor and safety officials can’t pinpoint any particular factors in the increase. However, two circumstances predominated: objects falling onto workers, or workers losing their footing and falling themselves. • • •

Laurels to some straight talk from former state GOP Chairman Tom Fetzer, whose farewell comments offer an insider’s perspective on the take-no-prisoners style of politics, even among party members. “I had worked in Jesse Helms’ campaigns which tended to be knock-down, dragged out affairs,” Fetzer said. “I had run for mayor of Raleigh in a city that had never elected a Republican. The campaign for chairman was the most miserable experience I’ve ever encountered. Things were said about me that I could not believe — vicious lies. I spent FETZER $20,000 defending my name in a lawsuit.” While the vitriol isn’t confined to any particular medium, Fetzer zeroed in on the online world in this suggestion for Robin Hayes, the new chairman: “If I could give you one piece of advice, please ignore the idiot bloggers. I don’t know those these people are and why they have time to do this stuff. But they need to get a life.”

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

Jump, and you will find out how to unfold your wings as you fall. — Ray Bradbury

Moderately confused

f all the “mamas” who helped shape me — a tagteam effort that included my mother, her eight sisters, several teachers and the mothers of a few of my friends — no one meant more to me than my grandmothers. My mother’s mother was a preacher’s wife who lived in town, rarely went to church and never missed a chance to speak her mind. A mischievous woman with a dark sense of humor, she wore white gloves to go SHARON shopping, cheatRANDALL ed openly at cards and swore under her breath like a sailor. My father’s mother was a farmer’s wife who lived on a mountain that she seldom left, except to go to church every Sunday. She grew dahlias and tomatoes, hiked for miles to pick wildflowers, read novels, wrote poetry, painted sunsets on stones and traveled through the pages of National Geographic and her own imagination. They were as different from each other as two women could be. The one thing they shared in common was a boundless and abiding love for me. I was each woman’s favorite grandchild, a fact that will be disputed by my siblings and cousins, but I had no doubt: They loved me best. The strange thing is, somehow they managed to give me both their natures. Never mind which parts. It’s an odd combination that allows me to feel equally at home in town or on a mountain, and equally drawn to both. But like flip sides of the same coin, I never know which side — city or country — will turn up. I always thought I knew my grandmothers pretty well. But lately I’ve been seeing them — or, rather, my memories of them — in a new and different light. Apparently, with grandmas, it takes one to know one. That is what I am now, a grandmother. Yes, you are right. I am not too proud to brag. I joined the club five months ago when my youngest and his wife gave birth to a strong boy with red hair and blue eyes and a steel-trap grip on my heart. His name is Randy. He lives in California with his parents. I live 500 miles away in Las Vegas, with my husband, who calls from work several times a day to see if I’m still home. I spent three weeks with Randy after he was born, plus a few days at Thanksgiving. And he and his parents came to visit after Christmas. That’s not much time to get know each other, but we’re working on it. Today, while his mom was shopping, I pushed his stroller about the store and entertained him by making faces that kept him in stitches. I hate shopping, but I’m good at making faces. He thought I was hilarious. Later, his mom let me feed him bananas. He didn’t find that nearly as funny. Most of the bananas ended up in my hair. After his mom cleaned him up, we played, he and I, on the rug in his room and I told him about his great-great grandmothers. “They had big bellies,” I said. “And bosoms the size of turkeys.” He grabbed his toes and tried to put them in his mouth. “And when they hugged you, you knew you’d been hugged.” He grabbed my hair and tried to put it in his mouth. “They were different,” I said, “and I am different, too. But the best thing about them was they loved me best. And that is how I will love you.” He grabbed my nose and tried to put it in his mouth. “Someday,” I continued, in a twangy, pinched-nose, painful voice, “you might have a baby sister or a bunch of squirrelly cousins who’ll say I love them best. And they’ll be right.” He let go of my nose and looked into my eyes. “But just remember,” I said, resting my face on his belly. “I loved you best first.” • • • Contact Sharon Randall at

Edit first, publish later Speed can trump accuracy in digital world iffords Shooting Highlights a Digital News Danger.” That was the headline over a column by the Washington Post ombudsman, Andrew Alexander, criticizing his paper’s coverage of the tragic events in Tucson, Ariz. When the New York Times public editor, Arthur Brisbane, addressed the same subject, the headline was pithier, “Time, the Enemy.” Both columns focused on a small but critical fact: For a brief period during that chaotic day, many news organizations reported that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords had died. How and why they made that misSTEVE AND COKIE ROBERTS take reveals something important about the modern media environment. Through a rich variety of instantaneous outlets — Twitter feeds, e-mail alerts, Facebook postings — the country could follow the “Giffords shooting” in real time. In the interest of speed, those updates often followed the adage coined by Jeff Jarvis, a new-media expert at CUNY: “Publish first, edit later.” It’s certainly true that the Web is a selfcorrecting mechanism. Mistakes can be quickly spotted by an army of self-appointed critics and pulled down as rapidly as they are posted. The entry reporting Giffords’ death lasted 10 minutes at the New York Times website. Still, a mistake was made — a big one. There is no newspaper headline preserved for history — comparable to the “Dewey Beats Truman” relic from 1948 — saying “Giffords Killed.” But “Time, the Enemy” sums up the lesson that should be learned. The media today is under enormous pressure to produce scoops and attract eyeballs, particularly on the Web. Traffic equals ads, and ads equal revenue. And while speed has always been valued in daily journalism (a craft we practiced for many years, Steve at the New York Times and Cokie at NPR and ABC), the current climate is approaching insanity. As Jim Roberts (no relation), a founding editor of, put it, we’re immersed in a “1440/7 news cycle,” 1,440 minutes a day, seven days a week. Each minute, according to Brisbane, is “demanding news for delivery to a networked world.” And those demands produce errors. CNN and NPR (among others) made the first mistake, reporting Giffords’ death prematurely, without double-checking their sources. Other outlets, like the Times and the Post, made the second mistake, simply re-



peating the information at their websites without confirming it independently. This practice is understandable — they didn’t have their own reporters in Tucson — but ultimately dangerous. And lazy. It’s a cheap way to “feed the beast” without taking responsibility for the accuracy of your own brand. The third mistake was a failure of editing. As Brisbane reported, the Times editor in charge of news alerts initially told her writer NOT to include Giffords’ death because it had not been confirmed. But when the writer updated his posting, and added the word “killed,” the editor failed to review what he wrote. Speed trumped accuracy. “I should have looked at every change,” admitted the editor, Kathleen McElroy. “Nobody should self-publish,” added Times standards editor Philip Corbett. “Everything should go through an editor. Ideally, it should go through two editors.” Here’s the core of the debate: “Nobody should self-publish” versus “Publish first, edit later.” The second maxim certainly has an allure. It’s faster and cheaper and utilizes “crowd sourcing” and “citizen journalists” to get things right — eventually. Even Jonathan Landman, a digital-media editor at the New York Times, sees the wisdom in this approach. “Readers can and do participate,” he wrote two years ago. “Their participation has a salutary effect on quality — millions of amateur editors catch a lot that a few professional ones miss.” Fair enough. But “publish first, edit later” still bothers us. Call us old-fashioned, but that’s not the way we were trained in the business. We still believe it is the responsibility of professional journalists, not amateurs, to make sure that we produce the fairest, smartest and most comprehensive report possible. Amateurs can help — and journalists who arrogantly ignore their input and resent their scrutiny are plain foolish. But crowd sourcing is no substitute for the careful, diligent process of reporting and editing that should happen before anyone pushes a button and releases information to the world. Corbett is right; we all need editors. And the “journalism of verification” still has a role in a WikiWorld of unedited and unchecked assertion. Mainstream media organizations are struggling to survive. But they cannot do that by abandoning their standards or their principles. News consumers want to trust what they read and see. They still value the concept “edit first, publish later.” • • • Contact Steve and Cokie Roberts at

Regarding the article about the city manager’s pay: Why does the City Council need to give David Treme a bonus? He makes $139,726 yearly. He should already be able to retire. I sure could retire if I had only $500 of my taxes back each year. The City Council annexed us on July 1, 2007, and doubled our taxes. We got nothing for it. But Treme got a yearly raise of $5,374 in December 2007. Mayor Kluttz stated the city was facing a money problem. Why? Give a raise to someone who already is making double what the average taxpayer makes, and waste money on something like fiber optics. All I say is for taxpayers to vote in November and change the people on City Council. Put people on the council who care about the working people. People who will think before putting a hardship on the working class. Remember, N.C. Highway 150 group — they will try again to annex you. So vote them out. — Charles Black

smoke-free air, and no one should have to choose between their health and a good job! The right of an individual to risk his or her own health does not include the right to jeopardize the health of those who must remain around them in order to make a living for themselves and their family. Since these companies are unwilling to make a stand, we are calling on our elected officials to step up to the plate and impose regulations for the safety and welfare of our county’s workingclass citizens. Smoking is optional; breathing while making a living is not. — P.L. Beaver



Breathing easier on the job Thank you, D.G. Partlow (Dec. 19 letter), for calling on our elected officials to approve stricter anti-smoking laws in the workplace. With the indisputable scientific evidence on secondhand smoke, it’s inconceivable that (at least one of) Rowan County’s largest employers continue to allow smoking on the job. All employees have the right to breathe

Honoring the Sabbath In response to the scheduling of make-up days for the Rowan-Salisbury Schools: This is a perfectly clear example of removing God from our public school system. Asking our families to send their children to school on God’s Sabbath Day is in direct violation of the fourth commandment. — Mary Rose Salisbury

square-foot quarters in a former store on South Cannon Boulevard to a spacious, modern facility. “I was so discouraged. The economy happened to all of us; it happened to this building,” he said. “It really became something we became concerned was never going to happen.” Pilkington credited Kannapolis City Manager Mike Legg and N.C. Sen. Fletcher Hartsell as “rocks on this” who made the project happen. Hartsell, meanwhile, jokingly gave credit to Pilkington’s “intractable, abrasive, difficult personalty” for not letting it die. Hartsell called the groundbreaking a “very emotional moment for me.” He noted a study released last week shows Cabarrus County with one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the nation, and that’s thanks, he said, to the Health AlHARTSELL liance. The senator and others also pointed out the history of the department. It was one of the first rural public health departments in the nation, and it was the first in the country to administer polio vaccines. Hartsell fought back tears when he said that among the pictures on a history wall planned for the new facility will be a photo of a woman holding a 6-year-old boy as he receives the polio vaccination. That boy was Hartsell. Looking forward, he listed a number of people whose vision was coming to fruition in the new Health Alliance and the N.C. Research Campus, where studies aim to improve people’s lives by improving their health. “This entity adjacent to the campus brings it home to us,” he said. “It’s got to become our vision, each and every one of us.” Among those Hartsell citied as visionaries was David Murdock, the billionaire benefactor of the Research Campus and chairman of Dole Food Co. who offered the land at a reduced price and helped secure funding to get the Health Alliance near his venture. And even he admitted to having been a little worried about the status of his own project. When the recession hit, he said, partners “said, ‘We’ve got to go home and take care of our money.’ ” After an initial flurry of food manufacturers and others coming to Kannapolis to research and improve their products, interest in joining the campus waned with the nation’s economic condition. “I thought I spent all that money for no good there ... as we sat still,” he said. “But we’re back.” Murdock, who flew in for the groundbreaking, said he met just before the ceremony with representatives of a company interested in the Research Campus. He made it clear he considers the Health Alliance a part of that. “It warms my body as well as my brain to see this get started,” he said. “I’m very happy to be working with Fred (Pilkington) to add to the campus. ... It will be very beneficial to the whole area healthwise, that’s what I think about, and jobs will come.”


ployees will spend some of their $14 million annual payroll — it’s just a few minutes’ walk from the N.C. Research Campus, a $1.5 billion life sciences complex where studies focus mainly on nutrition and disease. The Health Alliance has already taken part in public health research projects with Appalachian State, Duke and N.C. State universities, and officials say researchers are considering more ways to partner. Jay White, chairman of the Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners, said because of those partnerships, work involving the Health Alliance will “resonate not only here, but throughout the world.” The Cabarrus Health Alliance — the county’s health department — will itself make an impact. A national panel of public health experts selected it last year as their subject in designing a model public health department. It will be more environmentally friendly in the building materials, the use of natural daylight to reduce dependence on electrical lighting, and storm water retention and filtration in special planting areas. The new Health Alliance building will use electronic check-in, information kiosks and electronic scheduling to help patients and increase efficiency, as well as graphic signage for patients who speak little or no English. The space inside will be flexible, with areas that can be combined for uses ranging from immunization clinics to social gatherings, exam rooms that can be used by multiple caregivers and office areas with modular furniture for easier reorganization. “This project will serve not only citizens of this community and outlying areas, but will serve as a model of what efficient and effective health care can be,” U.S. Rep. Larry Kissell said. To make way for all that, demolition will begin soon on a former paint store and a bank already on the site and officials say they expect the new Health Alliance to be built by December. If that seems an aggressive schedule, more than one speaker Friday said it is “a long time coming.” The new Health Alliance building was originally to be paid for as part of a $168 million bond package approved by the city and county in 2007. The money was to make improvements around the N.C. Research Campus and the debt repaid with increased tax revenue from campus-related development. But when the economy came crashing down, so did the prospects for such a large financial undertaking. Subsequent financing packages got smaller, but even those failed to gain traction in such slippery economic conditions. Finally late last year, Kannapolis and Cabarrus officials decided to sell $35 million in general revenue bonds to be repaid with taxes collected from the downtown district around the Research Campus. The boards later amended that to include Build America bonds subsidized by the federal government. Some admitted Friday they had begun to question whether the new Health Alliance would ever be built. “There were times when we thought it was not going to work out for us, but here it is,” Kannapolis Mayor Bob Misenheimer said. “It was a different economy when we started. ... Now that economy has showed its importance is event greater.” Pilkington, the Health Alliance CEO, said he doubted “at least 100 times” the agency would get to move from its cramped 33,00-

Pastor Jim Dunkin and Pastor Eudoxio Santos distribute food in Rio Verde, Goias, Brazil. First Presbyterian Church in Salisbury is part of a mission program there that feeds 200 families each month with 40pound packs of food.

First Presbyterian continues mission in Brazil BY THE REV. DR. JIM DUNKIN For The Salisbury Post

First Presbyterian Church has a core value that seeks to follow Christ in mission work far beyond Rowan County. For 20 years TWAM (Teens With A Mission) have built houses in Mexico. For 10 years the church has participated in a medical mission to Mwandi, Africa completing over 500 eye surgeries. And this summer will mark the 10th anniversary of disciples being engaged in mission work in Rio Verde, Goias, Brazil. This missional relationship has become stronger each year and marking the 10th anniversary will be the most ambitious project yet, a medical/dental clinic in a severely impoverished area of Rio Verde, the suburb of Dom Miguel. In 1933 the Presbyterian Church in the United States established a medical mission in Rio Verde through sending a missionary, Dr. Gordon. He coordinated the construction of a hospital that still functions for Rio Verde. Over the years that relationship faded away, but ten years ago that relationship was renewed. Presbyterians from this area of North Carolina began traveling to Rio Verde and making a difference for that community. In the past 10 years First Presbyterian Churches of Salisbury and Asheboro, Thyatira Presbyterian Church and Prospect Presbyterian Church have constructed: a hospital chapel, a sanctuary and home for the pastor, a community center in Dom Miguel, which includes a school for young elementary children (275 students and 100 on the waiting

list), a space for worship with 200 attending, a home for the pastor, and a program that feeds 200 families each month with 40pound packs of food. Our son, Matt, created a documentary of this feeding program in Dom Miguel, which is supported by Hunger funds from Salem Presbytery in North Carolina. At A girl smiles as she waits with her family to least 30 disciples receive their monthly food pack. from First Presbyterian Church of Salisbury have participated in this erished area has grown to 10,000 mission over the past 10 years. people.

Other churches will be invited to be part of this mission as the clinic will be built over the next three years. The churches must fund the construction of the clinic, with a projected cost of $25,000 for each year. I would be happy to speak to any group in Salisbury who might be interested in learning more about this meaningful mission project. At the end of Matthew’s gospel Jesus told his disciples to “go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with

you always, to the end of the age.” Jesus did not say that we are to go into all the world only when the economy is strong. He simply charged us to GO. In the same moment he gave us the greatest promise we could ask for, to be with us always, especially going into “all the world.” It is an honor to lead a congregation who continues to affirm that core value of ‘reaching out with compassion to a world in need.’ Dom Miguel is waiting for a new chapter of compassion to be shared by followers of Jesus Christ, and one that will truly make a difference, all the way from North Carolina! This Sunday there will be a preliminary meeting at First Presbyterian Church of Salisbury, in the Education Building at 5 p.m. If you have any interest in this mission you are invited to attend.

Christiana Lutheran celebrates 140th anniversary Sunday hristiana Evangelical Lutheran Church in Granite Quarry will celebrate its 140th anniversary on Sunday. All are invited to attend, especially former church members and their families. In lieu of Sunday school, festivities begin in the basement assembly hall at 9:15 a.m. There will be food and fellowship until 10:30 a.m., when the celebration continues during worship. Compiled by the Archives Committee, chaired by Gladys Doyle in 2010 and Saundra Fesperman in 2011, the assembly hall will be adorned with displays of artifacts from the congregation’s past, such as the original church membership register. A short play reenacting the founding of the church will be performed, and pictures of sons and daughters of the con-

gregation and selected pastors will be displayed. A short reelto-reel clip of the church’s 1941 homecoming, filmed by Lexington’s H. Lee Waters, will be shown continuously. Waters travelled to over 100 towns across the state (including Salisbury, Spencer, Rockwell, and China Grove) filming everyday activities. His collection of films has been donated to Duke University for archival preservation and restoration. DVDs of this clip may be ordered at the event or through the church office. A slideshow of old and current photos will be shown and the church will unveil “Precious Memories,” its collection of videotaped interviews with current and former members, including recently departed 104year-old Pauline Iddings, whose husband, the Rev. J. White Id-

dings, pastored the congregation during the 1940s. The worship service will begin with special recognition of descendants of the original charter families, as well as other recognitions. Christiana has been served by 25 pastors in its 140 years. The Rev. Simeon Scherer, pastor of Union Lutheran, organized the congregation in the historic 1850s Nathan Brown House, which sits behind the cemetery and is being restored as a museum centered around farm life during that time. Scherer served from Jan. 22, 1871 until March 24, 1871. The Rev. R. L. Brown, a son of the congregation, was the next pastor, serving from March 25, 1871 until April 1884. The current pastor is the Rev. Carl M. Haynes, who came to the church in 1992.

Seven men and their families helped organize Christiana. They were: Nathan Brown, Henry Brown, Daniel Frick, Moses Lingle, Charles Lyerly, Adam Miller and Milus Miller. The land (5.5 acres) upon which Christiana first built was given by Nathan and Jane Brown and Nathan’s mother, Amy. During its 140 years, Christiana has been a member of the United Lutheran Church in America (ULCA) the Lutheran Church in America (LCA), the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and recently became a member of the North American Lutheran Church (NALC). Christiana is located on Hwy. 52, five miles east of I-85 across from the Old Stone Winery. For more information visit .

Rocky Mountain spotted fever requires early treatment Dear Dr. Gott: I need some information on Rocky Mountain spotted fever. My 47year-old boyfriend was diagnosed with this in November 2009. He continues to get worse, has a lot of memory loss, poor balance and uses a walker. He still tests positive after all this time. He waited several weeks before getting any help. He had a high fever, was confused, and could not walk. At this point, I called the ambulance and had him taken to the hospital. All the doctors that we DR. PETER have seen during severGOTT al hospital stays have said that he will never recover. He was given antibiotics at one point, which his doctors called a “big gun” and were the strongest there is. He is depressed, has mood swings, cries a lot, and depends on me 24/7. Around the same time, he also had a staph infection that he got from an open wound. Is there anything I can do to help him? Dear Reader: Let’s start with the staph infection. I cannot determine whether this was related to his symptoms because you did not elaborate on how severe the infection was. Staph bacteria are common and can be found just about everywhere. Most cases of infection are minor and only affect the skin; how-

ever, rarely, the infection can become severe and result in symptoms similar to those your boyfriend experienced (I assume due to his Rocky Mountain spotted fever and not the staph) and may, in some instances, result in lifethreatening consequences. Treatment involves antibiotics. In many cases, cultures should be taken to determine which antibiotic will be most effective in eradicating the infection. This is because staph are adaptable. Less than 10 percent of cases can be treated with penicillin, and up to 50 percent of staph found in hospitals is resistant to another common antibiotic, methicillin (referred to as methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA). Now to the Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Caused by the bacteria Rickettsia rickettsii, this illness is most commonly transmitted by the American dog tick, wood tick or the Lone Star tick. Contrary to popular belief, Rocky Mountain spotted fever is not found only in the Rocky Mountains. The name was given because some of the first identified cases came from the area. In 2002, according to the CDC, North and South Carolina, Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas had the most cases reported. North Carolina and Oklahoma alone accounted for 35 percent of all reported cases between 1993 and 1996. Early symptoms include high fever (102 F or higher),

severe headache, chills, abdominal pain, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light. As the infection progresses, sufferers may experience diarrhea, restlessness, widespread aches and pains, a red-spotted or blotchy rash on the wrists or ankles, and delirium (restlessness, confusion, possible hallucinations). If treatment is delayed or not sought, Rocky Mountain spotted fever can cause brain damage, shock, gangrene (resulting in amputation of the affected area), meningitis, blood-clotting abnormalities and heart, lung or kidney failure. On rare occasions, it can be fatal. Treatment is fairly straightforward for those who seek and initiate treatment within five days of developing symptoms. For these cases, antibiotic medication, most often doxycycline, is taken for one week to 10 days or until at least three days after the fever and symptoms subside. Because your boyfriend waited so long before seeking help, he may be suffering from permanent damage to his brain and/or other organs. I urge him to be examined by a physician or specialist familiar with Rocky Mountain spotted fever, particularly in cases in which treatment was delayed. He likely needs an extended course of antibiotic therapy.

A couple of new, constructive relationships are likely to be formed with persons in your field of endeavor during the year ahead. What you have in common is what will draw you together, but your personalities will cement the friendship. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Before requesting a favor from a friend, you should make certain that s/he has the necessary knowledge or ability to help you out. Don’t allow an ineffective person to have any serious input in your affairs. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) - In order to achieve an objective that you deem significant, you must be careful that you don’t take on an associate who could unwittingly tie you down. Remain free to shake, rattle and roll. Aries (March 21-April 19) - If you find yourself being a bit lethargic, select activities that stimulate your circulation. Being active will enhance your zest for success. Taurus (April 20-May 20) - Upon occasion, certain people can become an irritating bundle of nerves. If you’re confronted with such a person, ignore your chagrin and you’ll help this person relax once again. Gemini (May 21-June 20) - It could be more important than usual to keep your word. Acknowledge your pledge and follow through on it, no matter how much it may inconvenience you to do so. Cancer (June 21-July 22) - Give it some time, and there is no question that you will find little ways to resolve a certain situation that has been annoying you. The results will be impressive. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - The temptation to spend far more than you can comfortably afford is likely to be rather strong. If you find your will is far weaker than your whims, try to put a lid on it. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -You’re likely to find all kinds of flimsy excuses for not taking care of an unpleasant situation. However, if it is something that will have to be resolved eventually, get it done now. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - The charisma that you possess will be quite appealing to members of the opposite gender. However, take care it is not misunderstood and considered flirtatious. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Focus your mind and energy on business matters, and this could turn out to be a profitable day for you. Avoid all pleasurable distractions until after you’ve gotten things squared away. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Although you’ll be exceptionally fast out of the starting block, you aren’t likely to be able to sustain such energy. Take care of all-important matters early in the day. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Because you might not be able to operate as independently as you would like, be careful that an ineffective associate doesn’t dictate the direction important events take.

Do not forget the useful rule BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

Joshua Reynolds, an 18th-century English artist, said, “Could we teach taste or genius by rules, they would be no longer taste and genius.” When we learn bridge, we are taught several rules that are right most of the time; for example, second hand low and third hand high. Others, like cover an honor with an honor, are often wrong. This three-no-trump contract is easy to make if declarer applies another rule, one that works all the time — with one proviso. What would you do after West leads the spade six? Your sequence showed 25-27 points and a balanced hand. North had nowhere to go. You have eight top tricks:

one spade (given trick one), three hearts, three diamonds and one club. You will obviously get the extra trick from clubs. What can you learn from West’s lead? Presumably he has led his fourth-highest spade. If so, you can apply the Rule of Eleven, which must work. Six (the value of the card) from 11 is five. This means that there are five spades higher than the six in the North, East and South hands combined. And you can see all five. Ergo, East has no high spade and West has led from a suit headed by the A-Q-8-6. Since East has no high spade, call for dummy’s 10. When it wins — as you know it will — take the club finesse. When that works, you cruise home with two overtricks. Note that if you win trick

one in hand, East will get in with his club king and push a spade through, giving West four tricks in the suit and killing your contract.

Kimmel’s show gets midnight slot LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show is getting a midnight start, courtesy of a five-minute sacrifice by “Nightline.” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” will move back from 12:05 a.m. to midnight as of Feb. 4, ABC said Thursday. That will cut “Nightline,” which had been airing from 11:35 p.m. to 12:05 a.m. to 25 minutes instead of a half-hour. The news program, however, will gain a series of 13 prime-time episodes, ABC News President Ben Sherwood said in a staff memo that

was released by ABC. He said the hourlong shows would “minimize the disruption” to “Nightline.” ABC also intends to trim the commercial time within “Nightline” to largely preserve the program’s content, a spokeswoman said. For Kimmel, the move gives him the chance to build his audience by going head-tohead with other midnight shows, including George Lopez on TBS. In the crowded TV landscape, even a few minutes difference can determine which show viewers pick.

WEATHER UNDERGROUND’S NATIONAL WEATHER The biggest weather story Saturday will not have to do with precipitation. Instead, the biggest effect will be due to the frigid Arctic air that will pour into the eastern half of the country from Canada. This cold air will bring some of the coldest temperatures of the Winter so far. Parts of North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin will struggle to rise above zero degrees while also tallying minimum temperatures well below zero. Wind Chill Advisories are in effect for this area as a moderate wind will make it feel like -25 to -40 degrees in the morning. Parts of the Southeast will also experience some of this cold air as maximum temperatures will be in the 30s and 40s. The warmest part of the country, however, will be Florida as the southern tip of the state may experience temperatures into the 80s. A low pressure system will move into the Northwest and Intermountain West, allowing rain and high elevation snow will continue. The rest of the West will be under the influence of a strong high pressure system that will provide continuing dry conditions for the next several days. The Northeast will rise into the 10s and 20s, while the Southeast will see temperatures in the 30s and 40s. The Upper Midwest may not rise above zero degrees, while the Northwest will see temperatures in the 30s and 40s. The Southwest will rise into the 70s and maybe some 80s.

1,000-point man Sherrill returns to hit milestone in win over Raiders BY MIKE LONDON

MOUNT ULLA — In a sense, it was opening night for West W. Rowan 68 Rowan’s boys team. Keshun Sherrill reS. Rowan 47 turned from a hip injury to score his 1,000th career point, Domonique Noble returned from knee tendinitis, and the Falcons looked like a very solid basketball club most of Friday night. West rolled over South Rowan 68-47 to stay in contention in the NPC. “Other than five minutes against Carson in the Christmas tournament, this is the first time we’ve had our whole group together,” West coach Mike Gurley said. “Not saying that either Keshun or Domonique is 100 percent, but they’re healthy enough to play. I do feel pretty good about this one. We made a lot of effort plays.” Keshun Sherrill scored 21 points to lead the Falcons (6-9, 4-1). B.J. Sherrill had 16 points and 11 boards, and Jarvis Morgan added 12 points. Maurice Warren scrapped and got on the floor. Noble was rusty, but the Georgia Tech-bound defensive back will make an impact on both ends. “Just his presence makes this team so much better,” Keshun Sherrill said. Keshun Sherrill, a junior, was idle two weeks but missed just two games because of weather issues. He was stuck on 983 points all that time, but now he’s the 13th player in West’s illustrious basketball history to score 1,000 points. He joins his brother K.J. in that elite group. Sherrill reached the magic milestone when he drilled a 3-pointer out of the left corner to open the second half. “I really didn’t think about the 1,000 points because I knew that was something that was going to come if I just went out and played,” Sherrill said. “The main thing was my hip felt great. It was a great decision to take two weeks off and not rush it.” Keshun Sherrill announced his return to active duty immediately, burying a 3pointer to open the scoring. “I hadn’t shot a ball in two weeks,” he said with a smile. “But it went in.” When B.J. Sherrill bulled his way inside for an old-school three-point play, it was 6-0. Another Keshun Sherrill 3 made it 11-2, and it was pretty clear the Falcons were on their way to a routine victory. “Keshun asserted himself early,” South coach John Davis said. “He gave West a new energy level.” Seth Martin supplied a 3-pointer off the West bench for an 18-9 lead after a quarter, and the Raiders needed a buzzer-beating jumper by Johnathan Gaddy just to get wayne hinshaw/sALisBUrY Post

Keshun sherrill gets past the defense of south rowan’s Johnathan Gaddy for two of his 21 points in West rowan’s win.

Points system discussed BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press

Chilly weather expected for NFL championship games Associated Press

Temperatures in the teens, wind chills near zero, maybe even a snow shower. Now that’s a real Winter Classic. Frosty forecasts were in play Sunday for the AFC and NFC championship games, with players and fans ready to bundle up in Chicago and Pittsburgh. Could be around 13 degrees at kickoff when the New York Jets take on the Steelers at Heinz Field. Might drop to about 8 under partly skies by the time they finish well after dark. “It’s shaping up as one of the coldest games here that I can remember,” meteorologist Brad Rehak of the National Weather Service in Pittsburgh said Friday. “Going back to the 1970s with the

Raiders-Steelers games.” Rehak would know — he’s a longtime Steelers season ticket-holder who plans to be in the stands. Wind chills, he said, would be about zero all game. Quite a bit colder than when the NHL held its annual Winter Classic game at Heinz Field on Jan. 1. It was 50 degrees and rainy during Washington’s win over the Penguins. The conditions figure to be a bit warmer in Chicago when the Green Bay Packers play the Bears at Soldier Field. Maybe in the upper teens for the afternoon kickoff with wind chills in the upper single digits, and possibly some brief, passing flurries. “It won’t be something like the legendary Ice Bowl,” said meteorologist Richard Castro


AssociAted Press

Jay cutler and the Bears could be playing in the snow. of the National Weather Service in suburban Chicago. “Besides, the Packers and Bears are used to this. I always figure football players are accustomed to inclement weather,” he said.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR President Mike Helton strongly indicated the points system used since 1975 will be scrapped for a simpler scoring method. “The goal for some time has been to create a points system that is easy to understand, easy to explain, easy to be talked about, but also be credible at the end of the season,” Helton said Friday during a competition update at Daytona International Speedway. The current system is a complicated formula that NASCAR says was drawn up on a napkin over drinks at a Daytona Beach bar in 1974. The Associated Press reported this week that NASCAR is informing teams it wants a system that would award points based on finishing position, from 43 points to the winner to one for last place. “We’re in the middle of the conversations, actually telling the competitors where our mind is,” Helton said. “The main goal is to get one that’s just easier to understand and simpler. And we’re close. We’re getting a lot of great input from the drivers.” NASCAR chairman Brian France is expected to announce any changes, including potential tweaks to the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship format, next Wednesday night in Charlotte. It appears that’s the only unfinished business as NASCAR prepares for next month’s season-opening Daytona 500. The brief off-

season — last year’s finale was Nov. 20 — ended this week when teams reported to the newly paved Daytona International Speedway for three days of testing. But Helton defended NASCAR’s credibility, which many fans are questioning because the changes are so close to the start of the season and how the championship will be won hasn’t been formally announced. Because NASCAR officials want feedback from competitors, Helton said the rule changing process takes time. In the end, though, the approach legitimizes the changes, Helton said. “I think the credibility of our final decision is actually better because of the collaborative effort that we put into it today,” he said. “Our appetite and our desire is to do it correctly and have one that makes sense and not one just for the sake of changing things.” Even if fans, already weary of so many changes to NASCAR, have roughly three weeks to digest a massive points shake up? “I think that our fans — as long as we maintain the core elements of the sport, tweaking the points, tweaking the Chase, tweaking different components in the sport — they’re quick studies,” Helton said. With the scoring system undecided — bonus points for wins appears to be one of the oscillating issues — the competition group spent a good deal of time Friday discussing the new rule that will prevent drivers for racing for championships in more than one series.

South boys, East girls repeat as swim champs Staff report

So you think the eight straight championships by Salisbury’s girls’ basketball team in the Moir Christmas Classic is something to brag about? It’s not even the longest county streak. That belongs to the South Rowan boys swim team. The Raiders have won nine — count ’em, nine — consecuctive county championships. Their latest came on Friday in the Hurley YMCA when they easily outdistanced the field to win the annual county swim meet. South easily defeated second place East Rowan 178-92. Salisbury (88), North Rowan (63), West Rowan (26), and Carson (21) followed. The Raiders didn’t have the MVP of the meet, however. That honor went to Luke Evans of East Rowan. He finished with individual first places in the 200 individual medley

and 100 backstroke. He also was on the winning 400 freestyle relay team and second place 200 medley relay team. South coach Greg Yanz was named county boys coach of the year. • The East Rowan girls are on a streak of their own. The Mustangs cruised to their second straight county title with a 43.5 point victory over second-place South Rowan (167 to 122.5). Salisbury claimed third (118), followed by Carson (41.5), North Rowan (22), and West Rowan (6). The girls winner didn’t have the MVP either. That honor went to Carley Drye, from Salisbury. Drye was first in the 100 freestyle. She also was on three first-place relay teams (200 medley, 200 freestyle, and 400 freetyle). East Rowan head coach Jon Heidrick was named county girls coach of the year.

Connors returning to ECU Associated Press

The college football notebook ... GREENVILLE — Jeff Connors is leaving North Carolina after a decade to return to East Carolina. The Pirates announced on Friday that Connors would serve as assistant athletics director for strength and conditioning. Connors spent 10 years with the Pirates under football coaches Bill Lewis and Steve Logan before leaving for Chapel Hill in 2001. Connors replaces Mike Golden, who joined former ECU coach Skip Holtz at South Florida. In a statement, Connors said he was "elated and proud to return to a school and town where our family experienced the best times of our lives." In a statement, North Carolina coach Butch Davis said the team appreciated Connors' work and that it would rely on assistant strength coaches on staff to fill the void until a permanent replacement is found. • East Carolina’s record-setting receiver and 2010 Conference USA Most Valuable Player Dwayne Harris has been selected to participate in the Jan. 29 Under Armour Senior Bowl. He will suit up for the North Team, which is being led by Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. Harris, who was a first-team all-

conference selection as a wide receiver and punt returner in 2010, set Pirate single-season records with 1,123 receiving yards and 101 receptions. LSU’S QUARTERBACKS BATON ROUGE, La. — When Les Miles sought out a new offensive coordinator, his main goal was to find someone with a history of making quarterbacks better. More than any other candidate, Steve Kragthorpe seemed equipped to work with quarterbacks on their mechanics and decision-making, Miles said Friday. Kragthorpe, 45, was hired to fill a spot vacated last week by Gary Crowton, who has taken a similar position at Maryland. "The reality of it is, I'm a guy who needs execution," Miles said. "I just felt like (Kragthorpe) could shortcut some of the elaborate thought process that was going on and would make our guys quicker decision makers." SHRINE BOWL TODAY ORLANDO, Fla. — Former Virginia Tech standout Tyrod Taylor is ready for scouts to see his performance in today’s East-West Shrine Game. It’s the first major college football all-star game of draft season.

Mike Gurley claps for another good Falcon play.

WEST BOYS FROM 1C to the half trailing 37-25. Gaddy scored 14 to lead South (3-12, 0-5), which has lost four straight and eight out of nine. Soph Nathan Lambert played well off the bench, accounting for six points and seven boards and taking two charges. “The game is starting to slow down for Nathan,” Davis said. “This was by far his best game of the season, and it should lead to good things the rest of his career.” West led comfortably by 19 points heading to the fourth quarter. With South defenders Qua Neal and Jeremie Boulware containing Keshun Sherrill, West had a four-minute scoring drought in the fourth, but the Raiders still couldn’t make any kind of move. “We did get a lot of stops in a row, but we were passing up good looks to take tougher shots, and we didn’t make anything,” Davis said. Senior Brandon Sharpe played well for South. His fourth-quarter 3-pointer was one of just four the Raiders hit on the night. “Our confidence is down some because we’ve lost so many games in a row,” Sharpe said. “We’ve got to play together better and rely on each other a lot more.” West is home against NPC foe North Iredell this evening at about 5:30 p.m.

East girls

Carson routs Statesville BY PAUL HERSHEY


GRANITE QUARRY — It seemed strange to label this a must-win for E. Rowan 47 the East Rowan girls basW. Iredell 42 ketball team. But in many ways Friday’s 47-42 victory over stubborn West Iredell was one of those win-or-pack-it-in contests. “It was a game we had to have,” senior Taylor Honeycutt said after the Mustangs (4-10, 2-4 NPC) curbed a four-game losing streak. “This is the second time around the conference. We needed a fresh start.” They got it despite the continued absence of starters Ashley Goins (quad) and Karleigh Wike (elbow), both sidelined with injuries. Without them the Mustangs have learned to wing it — and this was the first time they succeeded. “We’re working without our starting point guard and starting center,” explained firstyear coach Danielle Porter. “These girls have had to fill roles they’re not that comfortable with. They’ve compensated with heart and hustle and things that we saw tonight.” Nothing came easy against West (3-11, 24), a team that outscored ER 72-57 a month ago. East received 11 first-half points from take-charge senior Olivia Sabo. She failed to score in the second half, but reeled in 14 rebounds by game’s end. “My three was a little off tonight,” she said with a post-game smile. “But my mind was

SAL. BOYS FROM 8C both freebies. Jarrett Rivens was whistled for pushing Warren on the rebound attempt, giving the Eagles hope. Warren made the first free throw and the Hornets forced a jump ball after the second try was off. John Knox capped the scoring with a free throw with 17 seconds left. East got a good look from the corner from Braxton Shetley, but the attempt drew air and Tion McCain grabbed a steal and was fouled after an East offensive board with 4.5 seconds left. McCain couldn’t hit either of his shots from the charity stripe and Shetly got another chance to tie it on a running half-court shot that was wide as the buzzer sounded. “Free throws can win or lose a game,” Morgan said. “We need to focus on that more in practice.” After trailing 38-37 at the half, Salisbury took the lead for keeps on a basket from Rankin early in the half. The Hornets were able to obtain distance after a first half where neither team led by

made up to just go out there and play the game I love — shooting, rebounding, hustling, getting on the floor.” It was a close match throughout. West scored the game’s first six points but never led after East’s Caroline Fry buried a 3-pointer HONEYCUTT from the left side, providing a 17-15 edge with 6:06 remaining in the first half. Another 3-ball — this one by Honeycutt midway through the fourth quarter — gave the Mustangs a 43-38 lead and enough breathing room to fend off the guests, who converted only three of 14 free throws in the final period. They missed 17 of 28 altogether. “If we make those free throws, it’s not even a close game,” said losing coach Phil Fox. “You’ve got to execute. We didn’t.” Neither did East, which went 2-for-9 from the line in the fourth quarter. Yet the Mustangs found an escape door and won a game they absolutely had to win. “Sometimes heart and hustle can win basketball games,” said Honeycutt. “We proved that tonight.” WEST IREDELL (42) — Ellis 14, Sigmon 11, Marshall 5, Gaines 4, Ijames 4, Gatton 4. EAST ROWAN (47) — Sabo 11, Honeycutt 10, Fry 8, Poole 8, Gullett 4, Lowe 4, Sides 2, Drew, Rummage. W. Iredell 10 13 E. Rowan 11 14

more than three. “We tried to put pressure on them, but we were sluggish on defense,” Rankin said. “They made a MCCAIN lot of threes.” The teams traded threepointers on five consecutive possessions heading into the second quarter. After Warren posted an 18point first quarter, Salisbury clamped down and held him to 8 in the second half. The Hornets did likewise with Blake Dodd, who scored 15 in the first half, but earned just two free throws in the second. “That’s a heck of a basketball team over there,” said Jacobs of Salisbury. Salisbury’s John Knox, who will take a football recruiting visit to Winston-Salem State today, finished with 10 points.

CHINA GROVE — Despite a layCarson 57 off between Statesville 24 games of more than two weeks, Carson girls coach Brooke Misenheimer wasn't particularly concerned about how her team would play Friday night. "I was more anxious about what practice was going to be like on Monday," Misenheimer said. "We've had some good days of practice and we've worked hard and felt like we got our legs back underneath us." No one will argue after seeing how sharp the Cougars were early in their 57-24 rout of Statesville. Carson (11-4, 5-1) made six of its first seven shots and hit four 3-pointers in the opening quarter to lead 20-2 and turn another contest between the Cougars and Statesville into a lopsided affair. Up until this season, Carson was on the losing end of those. Now it's the Greyhounds turn. "(The girls) like being in that position rather than being on the opposite end," Mis-


SAL. GIRLS FROM 8C the team concept in them,” Salisbury coach Chris McNeil said. “They’re starting to get the concept that, no matter what, you’re going to get everybody’s best shot every night.” Doreen Richardson and Brielle Blaire each scored nine points for Salisbury, who lead 21-3 at the end of the first quarter. “We executed our game,” Holmes said. “We had a couple of turnovers, but otherwise we went on our run,

came out wiht good intensity and did what we had to do.” Salisbury led 36-7 at the half and 54-15 after three RICHARDSON quarters. EAST DAVIDSON (25) — Whitley 5, Turner 5, Hallman 5, Harvell 4, Baker 3, Alexander 1, Grimsley, Atkinson, Bell, Welborn, Pope. SALISBURY (67) — Ash. Holmes 19, Richardson 9, Blaire 9, Rankin 8, Ay.

scored the last five points to push the lead back to seven. Still, Perry felt comfortable. "We'd have loved to been up but we weren't terribly bothered by being down a few at halftime," he said. Of course, he wasn't expecting a third quarter like the one the Cougars endured. After a basket on the first possession of the half, Carson missed nine straight shots before Love made a runner in the lane with under three minutes to go. The Cougars then went scoreless the rest of period after that. Whether it was open jumpshots, point-blank layups or - on one occasion a dunk attempt by Heggins, nothing else fell through the Carson hoop. "It seemed like that scoreboard got stuck on 29 for us for a really long time," Perry said.

Duke women beat Yellow Jackets Associated Press

The college basketball notebook ... DURHAM — Krystal Thomas scored 11 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to help No. 3 Duke beat Georgia Tech 69-32 on Friday night. Tricia Liston added nine points off the bench for the Blue Devils (18-0, 4-0 ACC), who defeated the Yellow Jackets for the 32nd consecutive time. Duke blew open the game with a 13-0 run early in the second half, extending its home winning streak to 18 games. It was the 100th victory for Joanne P. McCallie as coach of the Blue Devils. Three players scored six points to lead the Yellow Jackets (16-5, 4-1), whose schoolrecord 13-game winning streak ended in their most lopsided loss of the season. Alex Montgomery, who entered the game averaging a team-high 14.5 points, finished with a season-low two points on 0-for-7 shooting from the field. ATLANTIC 10 SHOWDOWN CINCINNATI — Only four games into conference play, the Atlantic 10 gets an early showdown between the teams that shared its last regular-season title. Xavier and Temple share some A-10 history that's on the line, too.

The Musketeers (12-5, 4-0) have won their last 34 home games in league play, which matches the longest such streak in A-10 history. Their partner in the record? Temple (13-4, 3-1), which ran off 34 in a row from 1987-91 and is in position to keep Xavier from pulling ahead today. CAL’S CURSING LEXINGTON, Ky. — John Calipari's word choice could have been better and he knows it. The Kentucky coach, however, stands by his message to freshman Terrence Jones and the rest of the Wildcats during a loss to Alabama on Tuesday: It's time to stop worrying about your numbers and start worrying about your chances to compete for a Southeastern Conference title. Cameras caught Calipari loudly swearing at Jones during a stoppage in play late in the second half. The coach later apologized on his Facebook page and his Twitter feed for his language. By Friday he was ready to move on, more worried about Kentucky's inability to win on the road than any fallout over letting his emotions get the best of him. He brushed off questions about the incident, but reiterated the Wildcats (14-4, 2-2) can't continue to be selfish if they want to repeat as conference champions.

enheimer said. "Those things, from what I've seen, come in waves at every school." This romp started with simple driving layups by Allison Blackwell and Tyesha Phillips and a jumper by Sarrah Holman. The Cougars then took it further outside, with Chloe Monroe hitting back-to-back 3-pointers, followed by one each from Michaela White and Blackwell to cap off the quarter. Carson ended up with 10pointers in the game. Monroe hit five of them for 15 points. Phillips added 11 points, while Holman, Blackwell and White each scored nine in the win. "We jumped out to a good start the first quarter, which is always nice," Misenheimer said. "It always helps us when we're hitting our shots too. But it was a nice team win. Everybody got to play and everybody got to contribute and



that's always good." The Cougars led 34-11 at halftime and could've picked their final score after that. "We were on the other side of it for a few years," Misenheimer said. "You can't treat this game any differently than any other game. You get yourself in trouble when you start overlooking things." Needless to say, the absence of starting point guard Kelly Dulkoski (illness) wasn't really felt. "We had other people step up," Misenheimer said. "I thought Sarrah did a good job of leading us at the point position." STATESVILLE (24) — Wodecki 7, C. Bradley 6, Witt 6, Hurdit 3, McCord 2, B. Bradley, McKinney. CARSON (57) — Monroe 15, Phillips 9, Blackwell 9, Holman 9, White 9, Cloninger 2, Stirewalt 2, Barringer, Clark, Cole. 2 9 20 14

go,” said Shepherd, who stuck three 3pointers and showed signs of emerging as a No. 3 scorer for East. “We had that momentum. Right away we were making shots, running plays and playing together.” The Mustangs were paced by Gittens, who scored 11 points and reached double figures for the fourth straight game. But Rogers was limited to seven points — all in the first half. “We showed all that intensity at the start, but we fell flat in the second quarter,” Ledbetter said afterward. “We got some shots early and good penetration, but then they stopped falling. And that Gray kid, he can flat-out play. He’s a slasher who moves fast. We’re a young team that’s still trying to figure out the varsity pace.” • NOTES: West Iredell (8-7) squared its conference record at 3-3. ... East is idle until Wednesday when it plays at Carson.

"We've had those spells this year. Sometimes you think you get good looks but they just don't go down." Adding insult to injury, Statesville made it 48-29 at the end of the quarter when Marquis Willis grabbed a long rebound and banked in a long 3-pointer at the buzzer while falling backward near midcourt. After the hot start, the Greyhounds didn't shoot particulary well either, but they controlled the boards and were camped out at the free-throw line all night, finishing 24 for 43 in the game. Four Cougars fouled out before it was over. "We had a lot of guys over there that we didn't have an option to put it, so that's never good," Perry said. "You can't put someone on the foul line 40 times and win. We've got to move our feet a little better and get our hands off of them and not foul as much. They're athletic, they've got good shooters and a big guy down low so it's tough to guard them."

Carson, which again played without Cody Clanton, got only as close as 64-52 in the fourth, but that came with just two minutes left. Houston finished with a team-high 17 points. Wagner had 12 and Eagle scored 10. Willis and Nick Schofield each scored 23 to lead Statesville. Head coach Sonny Schofield was pleased with the win, though not satisfied with his team's play. "We've got a lot of stuff we've got to fine tune," he said. "We have too many spurts in the game where we just get out of rhythm and we try to create a shot too much. We put a lot of points on the board, but I didn't like our teamwork and the way we passed the ball."

the floor. “When he turns and shoots with just seconds to go, that’s routine for him,” said winning coach B.J. Johnson. Gray tallied a game-high 22 points, including three on a 55-foot Hail Mary as the first quarter expired. It helped wipe out an early 7-0 East lead and tied the score 11-11. “That was actually our fault,” said East’s Jordan Shepherd. “We had just scored (to go up 11-8) with like a second left and were walking back on defense. We weren’t aware of the time or where the ball was.” Gray took an inbounds pass and immediately launched his 3-ball, rustling the crowd and wiping the smile off East Rowan’s face. “He’s got a knack for hitting those kind of shots,” Johnson said. “That one changed the game. Instead of them going to their bench with a three-point lead, it was all even. A shot like that will take the wind out of anybody.” East fell behind 22-16 midway through the second quarter before con-



secutive 3-pointers by Avery Rogers and Hakeem Gittens tied the score for the last time. “I thought we played pretty well in the first half,” said East forward Josh Gobble. “Especially against SHEPHERD their big guy (Follrod). He’s their leader. If he catches fire, he doesn’t stop.” Follrod was quietly assertive in the second half, when he netted nine points and adjusted his game to suit the Warriors. “Early in the game, we didn’t panic,” said Johnson. “I had two starters sitting down for various reasons, so everyone’s rhythm was kind of thrown off. Zach had a rough night. Things didn’t go his way. But he accepted that he was going to be a distributor tonight instead of a scorer and didn’t force anything.” It was Follrod’s layup off a scramble that gave West a 36-31 lead after three periods. Later, a 7-0 run put the guests up 43-33 with four minutes to play. Forced to launch 3-balls on offense and foul quickly on defense, the Mustangs never drew closer than nine points. “You know, we came out ready to

West Rowan's Nycieko Dixon shoots over South's Sam Goins.

West Rowan’s Ayana Avery drives past South’s Alexa Allison. Avery finished with 20 points.

WEST GIRLS FROM 8C ing at tonight was not the same team I saw Wednesday when we beat East Rowan,” South coach Jarrod Smith said. “Against East, we had the desire to win every single possession, and we got a big win. Tonight, that desire wasn’t there for whatever reason, and their guards put a lot of pressure on us.” The Falcons had a 10-0 run in the opening minutes. By the end of a quarter, Avery had 13 points, Shay Steele had five blocks, and West led 16-3. “We tried to get out in the passing lanes, and a lot of times they were just handing us the ball,” Avery said. Avery outscored South by herself until Chelsea McManus hit two free throws late in the third quarter to make it South 18, Avery 17. Avery bumped her career scoring total to 1,768, passing Wendy Hampton for second place on West’s all-time list. She needs just 47 more for first place. West (12-4, 4-1) will be at home against North Iredell, ranked No. 1 in 3A, today at about 4 p.m. “It’ll be a good gauge for us,” Epps said. “If they wax us, we know we’ve still got a lot of work to do. If we can play with them, it means we could do something in the playoffs.”

Love emotional after being named captain Associated Press

The golf notebook ... MEDINAH, Ill. — Davis Love III had to share his big day with Chicago’s beloved Bears. If he leads the Americans to the Ryder Cup in the fall of 2012, he’ll have the whole town to himself. An emotional and enthusiastic Love was introduced Thursday as the next U.S. captain of the Ryder Cup, then spent the next few hours being feted across Chicago. He was made an honorary member at Medinah Country Club, where the 2012 matches will be played, got a miniature replica of the Stanley Cup, and hobnobbed with Chicago’s sports royalty: Scottie Pippen, Dan Hampton and Ernie Banks. “Good luck to you,” Pippen, who teamed with Michael Jordan to win six NBA titles with the Bulls, told Love at an afternoon reception. “I’m looking forward to popping some champagne with you.”

All five of Chicago’s pro teams presented Love with personalized jerseys, and the White Sox threw in a ball from the 2005 World Series. Love also was to be a guest of the Bulls at their game against the Dallas Mavericks later Thursday night. “The whole world is going to be watching what we do here in Chicago,” Love said. “When we get here, when the European team gets here, we’re going to be at least a point ahead because we’re going to have the Chicago fans, the Chicago energy.” The daylong celebration of Love’s appointment wraps up a week that put the Ryder Cup in the news some 18 months before the next shot is struck. Europe, which won the gold trophy in Wales last October, appointed two-time Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal as its captain Tuesday. Love’s appointment was hardly a secret, and it was clear he’s already working on a plan to reverse the Americans’ recent Ryder Cup woes. Europe has won six of the last eight matchups.

MELBOURNE, Australia — Venus Williams had played 251 Grand Slam matches and never once been forced to retire because of injury. It took all of four minutes for that streak to end. The seven-time major winner spent more than 48 hours agonizing over whether she’d be ready for the third round of the Australian Open. She decided to go ahead, hoping enough adrenalin would kick in to allow her to play through the pain. Williams was ailing after her second-round victory, her ability to move severely restricted. Waiting for her in the third round was 30th-seeded Andrea Petkovic. Williams took the court on a cool Friday night at Rod Laver Arena “just hoping for some magic.” The match was over almost before it began. Williams won just one of the seven points she played before she bent over in pain, clutching her right side. She knew she had to stop. “I’ve never had to retire from a Grand Slam, especially after working so hard to pull out the match the other day. ... It’s super disappointing because this is just not how I envisioned my Australian Open being.” Things are looking far better for defending champion Roger Federer. The second-seeded Swiss beat Xavier Malisse 6-3, 6-3, 6-1, a vast improvement on his five-set second-round win over Gilles Simon. Top-seeded Rafael Nadal plays 18-year-old Australian wild card Bernard Tomic on Saturday night. The Spaniard is trying to become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969

Love pledged that a big part of his job will be making sure his players feel as comfortable and prepared as possible. “I’m a players’ captain,” he said earlier in the day. “I’ll try to get them what they need to be successful. I’m not going to tell the best players in the world how to play golf. I’m not going to read their putts. I’m going to stay out of their way and let them show their talents. I think a good leader knows he’s got a great team and just gets them prepared and let’s them go play.” BOB HOPE LA QUINTA, Calif. — Gary Woodland shot an 8-under 64 on Friday for a share of the third-round lead at 18 under in the Bob Hope Classic with Jhonattan Vegas. Vegas maintained his steady play in his fifth PGA Tour event with a 67 at the Silver Rock course. The Venezuelan rookie has a share of the lead for the second straight day in the 90-hole, four-course tournament. ABU DHABI CHAMPIONSHIP ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates —

Venus Williams waves to the crowd as she exits. to hold all four major titles at once. Nadal made a quarterfinal exit in Australia last year, then won the French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. No. 8 Andy Roddick overcame a slow start before powering to victory with 32 aces, stopping Robin Haase 2-6, 76 (2), 6-2, 6-2. No. 6 Tomas Berdych, No. 9 Fernando Verdasco and No. 19 Stanislas Wawrinka advanced. Wawrinka defeated No. 12 Gael Monfils 7-6 (4), 62, 6-3 and will meet Roddick in the next round. No. 3 Novak Djokovic, the 2008 Australian Open champion, was leading Viktor Troicki 6-2 when his Serbian Davis Cup teammate retired because of a stomach muscle strain. Maria Sharapova, the 2008 Australian Open champion, struggled to a 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 win over Julia Goerges of Germany. Her game picked up only after she asked officials to fix an air bubble on the Hisense Arena court. With the Williams sisters and Henin out, U.S. Open champion Kim Clijsters is looking more and more like a possible winner. Clijsters, seeded third, plays in the third round Saturday against Alize Cornet of France. No. 2 Vera Zvonareva opens play against Lucie Safarova.

A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez have agreed to one-year contracts with the Tampa Bay Rays. Damon gets $5.25 million and the chance to earn $750,000 in bonuses based on attendance, the person said. Ramirez gets $2 million. • The Los Angeles Angels acquired All-Star center fielder Vernon Wells from Toronto on Friday night, giving them the big bat they wanted to add this winter. The Blue Jays shipped their highpriced fixture to the Angels for catcher Mike Napoli and outfielder Juan Rivera in one of baseball's biggest trades this offseason. The teams did not say whether the Blue Jays would also send cash to the Angels to help offset Wells' contract. He has four years and $86 million left on the $126 million, seven-year deal he signed with Toronto. • CHICAGO — The Chicago White Sox have picked up their 2012 option on manager Ozzie Guillen's contract. Known for his colorful language and wide-ranging opinions on just about every topic, the talkative Guillen has a 600-535 record. LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers and outfielder Marcus Thames have agreed to a $1 million, one-year contract. Thames had a .288 batting average and a .350 on-base percentage in 82 games, both career highs, last season with the New York Yankees.

SUPER HORSES LOS ANGELES — Fans of the Super Bowl can probably expect to see Clydesdales in the game for the next few years. The owner of Budweiser says it has locked up its position as the only national beer advertiser in the Super Bowl through 2014. The brewer, which became AnheuserBusch InBev NV in 2008, has had a presence in the NFL’s championship game as the exclusive beer advertiser for 23 years. The week of the Super Bowl, which will be played on Feb. 6, is a busy one for brewers with beer sales rising as much as 20 percent above a typical week in January or February.

work over his firing for reportedly berating a female colleague. The wrongful termination lawsuit filed Monday in state district court in Franklin's hometown of Austin claims ESPN had no grounds for dismissing him. The suit says Franklin exchanged "contentious words" with a colleague who repeatedly interrupted a private conversation before the pair worked at the Chickfil-A Bowl without incident. Sideline reporter Jeannine Edwards has said Franklin called her "sweet baby" in a condescending tone. When she objected, he used a derogatory term. Edwards said a colleague reported the incident to ESPN officials. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and other fees, but not reinstatement. An attorney for Franklin didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment. Franklin was pulled from Fiesta Bowl coverage on New Year's Day, a day after the Chick-fil-A Bowl, and later apologized. He was fired Jan. 5. The lawsuit claims ESPN and its corporate partner, ABC, spread "false and inflated versions" of the exchange and damaged Franklin's reputation.

The NFL notebook ... CHARLOTTE — The Panthers have hired Mike Shula as quarterbacks coach, a key position as Carolina tries to turn around the NFL's worst offense under new coach Ron Rivera. The 45-year-old son of former Miami coach Don Shula was hired on Friday. He spent the past four seasons as QBs coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he oversaw the development of David Garrard. BILLS BUFFALO, N.Y.— Dave Wannstedt is back in the NFL after being hired to be the Buffalo Bills’ assistant head coach in a job that reunites him with good friend and colleague Chan Gailey. The Bills announced the hiring on Friday after the two sides met for most of the day to negotiate the contract. Wannstedt returns to the NFL after spending the past six years coaching the University of Pittsburgh, where he was

forced to resign last month. He spent four-plus seasons as the Miami Dolphins head coach before being fired midway through the 2004 season. He also spent six seasons — from 1993-98 — as the Chicago Bears head coach. Wannstedt is a defensive specialist and will help oversee a defense that struggled last season. The Bills’ defense was last in the NFL against the run, allowing 2,714 yards rushing — the second-highest total in franchise history. Buffalo allowed 200 yards eight times last season. BROWNS CLEVELAND — Browns coach Pat Shurmur joked about his defense at his introductory news conference. But he hired someone serious to run it. Shurmur called on former NFL head coach Dick Jauron as his defensive coordinator Friday, a well respected 60-year-old, who spent last season as Philadelphia's secondary coach.

The NASCAR notebook ... DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Even though he won’t be running for a championship, Carl Edwards has other reasons to keep racing in the Nationwide Series. Edwards said he plans to run every race in NASCAR’s second-tier series despite not being able to contend for the title this season. “We still have the owners’ championship to go for, still have all those wins to race for,” Edwards said during a test at newly repaved Daytona International Speedway. “That’s fun. That’s what makes the Nationwide Series fun.” Edwards plans to continue racing both series. “I would really love to be able to have another championship battle with Brad, especially ‘cause of how well he ran last year and try to race him again for it,” Edwards said. STEVE WALLACE DEBUT DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Steve Wallace, son of former NASCAR champion Rusty Wallace, will make his Sprint Cup debut in the season-opening Daytona 500. The 23-year-old Wallace will drive the No. 77 Toyota for his father's team, Rusty Wallace Racing. The entry is guaranteed a starting spot in the 43-car field because Rusty Wallace is taking over ownership points from Penske Racing. Larry Carter, general manager for RWR, will serve as the team's crew chief. Rusty Wallace believes the new pavement around Daytona International Speedway will eliminate handling issues and level the playing field in NASCAR's premier event. The younger Wallace has four top-15 finishes at Daytona in the Nationwide Series. His father failed to win the Daytona 500 in 22 attempts. BAYNE GETS RIDE DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR's oldest team is going with a young driver. Trevor Bayne, a 19-yearold up-and-comer who drove in the Nationwide Series last season, is scheduled to drive at least 17 Sprint Cup races for the Wood brothers in 2011. Bayne will drive the first five races, beginning with the Daytona 500 on Feb. 20, then make selected appearances over the rest of the season. He will be paired with veteran crew chief Donnie Wingo. Bayne made his Cup debut with Wood Brothers Racing last year at Texas and finished 17th. His performance earned him a ride in 2011.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS General Electric Co. said Friday that fourth-quarter net income increased 52 percent as the company made more money in both its lending and industrial businesses. The lending arm, GE Capital, drove the company’s results in the final three months of 2010 as it dealt with fewer loan defaults. Risky loans hammered the company during the financial crisis, forcing GE to book huge writedowns. Facebook said it has raised $1 billion from non-U.S. investors, which combined with an infusion from Goldman Sachs and Russia’s Digital Sky Technologies in December, brings the haul from its latest round of funding to $1.5 billion. The investments value the social networking site at $50 billion, more than the current market values of Yahoo Inc. or eBay Inc., but below those of Inc. and Google Inc. Facebook did not say Friday how it plans to spend the $1.5 billion. German business confidence has risen to a new two-decade high, exceeding expectations as an increasingly broad-based recovery in Europe’s biggest

economy shows no signs of slacking. The Ifo institute’s monthly confidence index rose to 110.3 points in January from 109.8 in December. It was the eighth consecutive increase. Citigroup Inc. is giving its CEO, Vikram Pandit, a boost in base salary to $1.75 million from just $1 a year effective immediately, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The announcement comes after Citi reported its first full year of profits since Pandit took over the top job in 2007 and the bank exited government ownership. Citi was one of the hardest-hit U.S. banks during the credit crisis, and received a $45 billion government bailout. Greece is doing better than anticipated in getting a handle on its debt problems but could still face another potentially damaging downgrade if the economy doesn’t start growing this year, a leading credit ratings agency said. Greece is on course to having reduced its budget deficit by 6 percentage points of GDP last year to 9 percent. The European Union and International Monetary Fund were behind a bailout package.

Hornets lose lead, not game BY RYAN BISESI

Salsbury knows a 2-0 start in the 2-A Central CaroliSalisbury 70 na Conference is E. Davidson 67 good by any measurement of success. However, if the Hornets buzz around like they did in the final six minutes, their stay at the top of the league will be brief. Salisbury survived a clash with a hot-shooting East Davidson team

that had a tying look from halfcourt at the buzzer in a 70-67 triumph Friday night. It was a continuance of dominance against East, whom Salisbury beat three times last season. “We didn’t feel like we played great tonight but then again, we’re playing against a team that’s going to be a really good team this year,” Salisbury coach Justin Morgan said. “We feel like we’ll take a 2-0 record.” A see-saw affair in the opening half saw Salisbury gain distance with a dominant third quarter and hang on after being outscored 19-10 in the

points from Darien Rankin and took advantage of some second-half foul trouble for the Golden Eagles. Taylor Warren, who finished with a season-best 26 points, picked up his fourth foul with 5:23 left in the third quarter. East’s Nick Lopez also claimed his fourth foul at the 4:16 mark. Both players did not return MORGAN RANKIN until the fourth quarter and eventually fouled out. East failed to score final six minutes. The opening 18 in the final 5:30 of the third, helping minutes saw 14 lead changes. Salisbury (9-4, 2-0 CCC) gain a 58-44 After topping Lexington earlier edge, its biggest lead, with eight minin the week, the Hornets got 23 utes to play.

“That hurt us, but not like I thought it was going to,” said East coach Matt Jacobs of the foul struggles. “We had some kids step up and play well in their place.” Leading 69-64 with 46.7 seconds left, the Hornets made just one of their last six free throws to allow East (9-7, 1-2 CCC) to hang around. A put-back by Warren with 37.9 ticks left closed East to within 69-66. Corey Murphy was fouled on the ensuing possession and misfired on



East Davidson no match for Hornet girls BY RYAN BISESI

Salisburyfought through Salisbury 67 t h e E. Davidson 25 monotomy of another blowout and walked away unscathed in a 67-25 win on Friday night against East Davidson. The Hornets held their guests to five field goals and scored the opening 14 points as they improved to 11-1 overall and 2-0 in the 2-A Central Carolina Conference. Senior A s h i a Holmes sunk six of seven field goals in the first half en route to a ASH. HOLMES 1 9 - p o i n t night to lead the defending state champions in scoring. Be it a nail-biter or one of the several laughers the Hornets have been invloved in, Holmes said the team still relishes each win. Especially since it was their 11th straight. “It’s still fun,” Holmes said. “It depends on how you win. Either a tough game or not, it’s still fun.” Holmes nailed a pair of threes early from the same corner to BLAIRE give the Hornets a 10-0 edge not even two minutes into action. “That’s actually my worst spot for shooting,” Holmes said. “My AAU coach has been working with me for a long time to become a shooter and finally, I got the technique down.” Afterwards, the lead never dipped under double digits as Salisbury held East to just five field goals and forced 26 turnovers. The Golden Eagles were scoreless for the first 4:39 of the game until Taylor Alexander hit a free throw. Their initial field goal came at the end of the opening quarter on a jumper from Ashley Swaim. Holmes hit another jumper inside the arc on the ensuing score to give her eight straight points. All Holmes’ points came in the first half. “I try my best to instill

Dutton says, ‘Move over Ayana’ BY MIKE LONDON

MOUNT ULLA — Alison Dutton’s 10 W. Rowan 59 points and six S. Rowan 29 rebounds were the biggest surprise of West Rowan’s 59-29 NPC romp against South Rowan. Dutton, a 6-foot-2 junior, en-

tered Friday’s game with a modest 27 points for the season and 57 in a mostly under-the-radar varsity career. “Dutton can play,” West coach Erich Epps said. “It’s just that no one knows it yet.” Dutton drilled her first two shots, and sometimes when that happens, confidence builds. “No clue where that came

from,” Dutton said with a grin. “Ayana Avery told me to get rid of my chewing gum and get serious about playing, but I disobeyed her and kept chewing.” Avery, who scored 20 points, didn’t mind. Dutton supplied most of the help the high-scoring senior guard got in the first three quarters. Freshman guard Nycieko Dixon came alive with

Carson boys fall BY PAUL HERSHEY

CHINA GROVE — Carson fell into a 10-point hole after one quarter Friday night, but it was the offensive struggles in the third period that p r o v e d Statesville 77 even more Carson 58 costly. D o w n seven at halftime, the Cougars made just 2 of 17 shots from the field during a five-point third period and first-place Statesville pulled away to a 77-58 North Piedmont Conference victory. Statesville (11-3, 6-0) never trailed after taking a 3-2 lead, built a 19-point cushion after three quarters and was never really threatened in the fourth. "During the droughts we've got to grind it out de-

fensively," Carson coach Brian Perry said. "If we stick on 29 for four minutes then we can't give up 15 on the other end. We've got to kind of limit them too and we just didn't do a good job of doing that tonight." Perry started the game with an unusual lineup of Donta Gilbert, Malachi Parker, D.J. Love, Travis Abbitt and Dylan Eagle. Gilbert and Love bookended the opening quarter with layups off of steals, but in between the Cougars struggled, making just 2 of 8 shots. "I thought those guys have earned some time in practice so we gave them a look out there," Perry said. "We had a hard time scoring a little bit with that lineup, but I thought they did okay." Statesville, meanwhile, hit 7 of 9 from the field to build a

10 in the fourth to finish with 14. South (5-9, 2-3) just had one of those games that happen in a long season. The Raiders shot 2for-23 from the floor in the first half while turning it over 19 times. That led to an insurmountable 30-9 deficit at the break. “The South team I was look-

19-9 advantage. Normal starters Nick Houston, Rik Heggins and Zach Wagner entered a minute into the second period and quickly contributed. Houston hit a 3-pointer and Heggins scored on a driving layup. Love followed with a jumper and Houston added a putback to make it 23-19. The Cougars got within two on two occasions - on a 3pointer by Wagner and two free throws by Houston - and had several chances to tie or get a lead, but never could. The Greyhounds then


GRANITE QUARRY — Anyone W. Iredell 51 w a i t i n g E. Rowan 42 for a letd o w n from East Rowan’s boys basketball team didn’t have to wait very long. Two days after gaining their first victory of the season, the Mustangs were lassoed by visiting West Iredell, 51-42, on Friday. “I was hoping everything would carry over,” East coach Trey Ledbetter said. “We know what winning feels like now, so we’re pretty dejected about this. There are no more moral victories



when you lose anymore.” East (1-13, 1-5 NPC) found a way to minimize the damage of 6-foot-4 senior Zach Follrod, limiting WI’s do-itall forward to 13 points. But it had no answer for junior guard Jalen Gray, a muscular sniper who proved dangerous from anywhere on

Aging in place allows you to keep your heart at home (ARA) - Because so many Americans are aging in place, they're looking for ways to make their homes safe and comfortable for the long term. With just a few modifications, retired couples can make their homes perfect sanctuaries for their golden years. Here are some modification ideas to help you keep your heart right at home:

* A Zon Walk-In Bath has an easy step-in, step-out design with anti-slip floors and internal grip bars. Hydrotherapy jets also add additional health benefits, so you can comfortably soak as long as you want. Visit or call (800) 501-0370 to learn more.

* There are video/television systems and services available that allow you to chat with a person from a care program while sitting at your dining room table. Program staff can also monitor your house and contact a relative or emergency service if they notice you haven't moved in awhile.

* Make your home easily accessible. At least one entrance should be level with the walkway - you may need to build a ramp to accomplish this. Remote locks and a covered walkway are also a good idea. Installing a good light at all the entrances will allow you to easily see where you are going.
