Two fired from Salisbury Fire Department BY EMILY FORD

The city said Friday it fired two Salisbury Fire Department employees who city officials had earlier said were no longer with the department

after an investigation into alleged improprieties. Firefighter Courtney Brown was dismissed Jan. 16 and Capt. Baxter “Buddy” Miller was dismissed Jan. 25, according to personnel records the city released.

Another firefighter, Castleman “Chet” Hedrick, has been suspended without pay for misconduct as a result of the investigation, the city said. Salisbury was the first of two fire departments to dismiss Brown this month. Cory

Orbison, chief of the South Salisbury Volunteer Fire Department, said he investigated a single individual in his department for “conduct issues.” He said he removed Brown Jan. 20. “We let her go,” Orbison

said. “She is no longer with us.” Miller has been an instructor at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College and officials

Pit bulls attack horses Some residents afraid to let children play outside

You may be able to find out online, if board follows county’s lead with database


BY SARAH CAMPBELL Two horses in different parts of the county are nursing serious leg wounds after pit bulls attacked them on Tuesday. And for one of them — Honey — it was the second attack in three months by the same dog. Honey’s owner, Tammy Fisher, keeps the horse in pastures on family land on Sells Road. She is furious — and scared. “She was in her lot, in her pasture,” Fisher said. “That dog was in her pasture attacking her.” Bruce Rufty has kept two horses in his pastures on Bernhardt Road since 1992, and he had never had trouble with dogs or other animals until Tuesday afternoon. Rufty’s 28-year-old horse, Gypsy, was attacked by a neighbor’s pit bull. The pit bull ripped open the inside of Gypsy’s front right leg, and also punctured a back leg. Gypsy had to have a tube sewn into her skin to help drain the infection. “I’m sick about it,” Rufty said. Fisher, Rufty and their neighbors all want the same thing — to see the law changed so any dog that attacks will be taken from its owner after the first offense. Everyone is worried the dogs will strike again, and they say the next target could be people. nnn Fisher said the first attack was the worst. The dog, Lucy, belongs to Cortenea Winchester of 1470 Sells Road, according to Animal Control officers. Lucy got loose and ran toward Honey, biting her legs and going for her throat. On Friday, Winchester denied the dog was hers and asked a Post reporter to leave her property. On Tuesday, Lucy came back to the pasture and attacked Honey’s rear legs again, leaving Honey with two puncture wounds and two tear wounds. “Every time that dog gets loose, he’s going to come over here and attack this horse,” Fisher said. Fisher is giving Honey antibiotics and pain medicine, but since she’s an older horse the pain and stress may lead to her being put down if she doesn’t heal. “I can’t be here all the time, I’ve got to work to take care of my horses,” Fisher said. “It’s not right for the working person to pay taxes and let these people get by with whatever.” Fisher’s neighbor David Ramsey helped chase the dog away from Honey on Tuesday, and he recorded a video of the November attack. “This dog has been aggressive to me before, and this dog gets loose a lot,” Ramsey said. nnn

Tammy Fisher hopes her horse, Honey, will soon be able to run freely around her pasture without worries of another dog attack. Smith said he’s scared to let his three grandchildren play in the yard, and he said the law needs to change. “We need some teeth in our laws,” he said. “It’s time for a public outcry. It’s time for a rebellion.” Rufty said the animal control officers need more power. “All he (the officer) can do is go down there and give him that citation — but what does that do?” he asked. “It doesn’t keep him (the dog) from coming back. “How many complaints is it going to take for something to Honey’s legs were still healing from a Nov. 5 attack by happen?

The chairman of the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education says he’s open to talks of posting the salaries of school system employees online. But he doesn’t necessarily agree with the idea. “We know it’s public information and we don’t want to buck that,” Dr. Jim Emerson said Friday. “I just hate to see the time, energy and effort it takes to put it online.” Mike Caskey, a newcomer to the board, is requesting the topic be added to the February agenda. “That’s really just part of EMERSON what I want to discuss,” he said. “I really want to discuss ways we can have a more open, transparent system.” Caskey’s request comes after Rowan County added a database to its website with salary and wage information for all of its employees. “I think we kind of have an advantage now that the county has done it first,” he said. “We can see how it goes for them and see if they can give us any direction.” Emerson said he’s not sure what kind of work goes into creating a database, but he CASKEY thinks comparing the county and the school district is looking at apples and oranges. “They don’t have half as many employees as we do,” he said. Caskey said making the information available on the school system’s website will make it more accessible. That’s something, he says, is important as the school system braces for deep state budget cuts. “We need to make it easier for people to go out and look for this stuff,” he said. Although public records law requires the school system to provide the information to anyone who requests it, Caskey said that doesn’t mean they are required to post it, but he would like to see that change. “I’m just one of seven people on the board. The other six might not want to do it,” he said. “I just want to discuss it.” Emerson said posting salaries to the website could breed resentment among employees. “Some guy is going to be upset that he doesn’t make as much as so and so,” he said. Emerson said he doesn’t see the point of adding a database when the information is already available. “Anybody that is curious enough they have accesss, they can go down there and ask to see it,” he said. “I don’t think there is any great dark secret.”

Alcoa appeals state decision, says it didn’t withhold information BY EMERY P. DALESIO Associated Press

RALEIGH — North Carolina environmental regulators should restore a key state water certification revoked amid allegations an Alcoa Inc. sub-

license to operate hydroelectric dams along the Yadkin River for up to 50 years. Alcoa denied Friday that it withheld information about the ability to meet the state’s water quality standard for dissolved oxygen.

there said they will conduct their own review to determine whether he will teach again. Salisbury officials have not disclosed the nature of the alleged improprieties or any details of the investigation. State law requires governments to make public a document explaining the reasons for a public employee’s dismissal if it is a result of disciplinary action, but it allows governments to withhold that information to give the terminated employees time to appeal. Brown had worked for the Salisbury Fire Department since Dec. 7, 2009, according to information provided by the city. She started as a part-time firefighter and became full time Nov. 29. Miller had worked for the Fire Department since Oct. 23, 1995. He had been promoted three times, the last time to captain in July 2005. Neither had been disciplined for any reason before their terminations, according to the records provided by the city. Brown began as a junior firefighter for South Salisbury when she was about 15 years old, Orbison said. Now 20, Brown did not return messages from the Post. Brown’s mother, Teresa Brown, told the Post on Thursday her daughter quit last week because she felt sexually harassed by other firefighters. Courtney Brown worked at Fire Station 2. Miller was initially placed on paid administrative leave Jan. 17 in conjunction with the investigation, said Zach Kyle, the city’s human resources director. Hedrick also was placed on administrative leave then suspended without pay Tuesday

ALCOA FROM 1a sion to revoke the certification Dec. 1. “In its revocation notice, the DWQ quotes selected portions of e-mails that do not provide the complete story and were taken out of context,” Alcoa Energy President Rick Bowen said in a statement Friday. “If you read the entire e-mail chains in context, and review the entire record, you find that no material information was withheld.” State regulators received notice of Alcoa’s appeal and had no immediate comment,


Texting tickets More than 1,200 drivers in North Carolina have been charged with texting-while-driving since the law went into effect in December 2009. Here’s a look at the number of motorists charged, broken down by age group and gender: n 16-25: 612 tickets n 26-35: 379 tickets n 36-45: 192 tickets n 46-55: 59 tickets n 56-65: 15 tickets n 66-75: 2 tickets n Male: 648 tickets n Female: 611 tickets

ing legislation against distracted driving,” Byrnes said. He noted that large groups of professionals — real estate agents, sales personnel, even legislators — are constantly on the road and want to get work done along the way. Men account for a slight majority of North Carolina’s charges. The average age of those ticketed with texting while driving is 28, according Department of Environment and Natural Resources spokesman Jamie Kritzer said. The company’s appeal enters a process of administrative hearings followed by the possibility either side could appeal further to state court, he said. Meanwhile, the head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s regional criminal investigation division said agents have spent weeks probing allegations that Alcoa’s shuttered aluminum smelter on the river is violating pollution laws. There has been no decision whether to launch a formal criminal investigation, said Maureen O’Mara, the EPA’s Special Agent in Charge in Atlanta. “We are looking into the al-

legations and we’ll make that decision soon,” O’Mara said. An EPA investigation was requested last month by state Sen. Stan Bingham, R-Davidson, who has opposed Alcoa’s relicensing efforts. “We are in the process of doing our own review and that has not been completed,” Alcoa spokesman Mike Belwood said. Pittsburgh-based Alcoa is fighting to renew an expired license to operate Yadkin River dams built decades ago to supply electricity to the Stanly County aluminum smelter

that once employed hundreds. Alcoa now sells the electricity to commercial customers. The company estimated in 2006 that the dams generated almost $44 million a year in revenues. Over 50 years, that could mean revenues of more than $2 billion, an amount that could multiply if demand for clean power booms. “We hope that our appeal will mean quick reinstatement of the water quality certification process so we can continue to work toward a new license,” said Bowen.

authorities to take a close look at how long a motorist is tapping the keys on their phone. Sloan suspects many of the tickets come simply after motorists acknowledge they were texting. Others come after close investigation following a crash. Roughly 700 were cited for other violations at the same time, some for driving while impaired, reckless driving or driving the wrong way. At least one person appears to have been cited for texting while driving a motorcycle. Sloan said it would be easier for officers if lawmakers required hands-free devices or banned phones for drivers altogether. That is already a prohibition for drivers under the age of 18. Guilford County, home of Greensboro, has recorded the most texting-while-driving violations, with 118 through 2010. Mecklenburg County, home of Charlotte, had 114. Wake County, home of Raleigh, had 107. AAA believes the number of violators in the state is far too low. A study found 39 percent of North Carolina drivers admit to texting while driving.

to the AP review. More than half were at least 26 years old when they were cited, including eight people over 60. Priscilla Blake, of Rock Hill, S.C., was 67 when she was pulled over last year after dropping her niece off at university in Wilmington. She said she doesn’t usually text while driving but was feeling sick and decided to try sending off a note to her niece. Blake didn’t know about the North Carolina law, but when a patrolman pulled her over she readily admitted that she was trying to send a message through her phone. She supports that law and thinks it would be useful in South Carolina. “Texting takes concentration off driving,” she said. “If you are texting, you are not looking at the road. Within a second, something could happen.” Sgt. David Sloan, who oversees traffic safety at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, said the ban is difficult for police to enforce because motorists are allowed to dial phone numbers but not messages. He said that forces



for misconduct, Kyle said. Miller and Hedrick worked at Station 1. It was not clear Friday if they have served as volunteer firefighters. Hedrick did not return a phone call from the Post, and Miller said he HEDRICK had no comment. Miller has worked as an instructor for the public safety training program at RowanCabarrus Community College but is not currently teaching a class, said Jeanie Moore, RCCC vice president for continuing education programs. The college is still in the process of confirming the remainder of spring and summer classes, she said. “Regarding Mr. Miller's future employment as an instructor: We will have to conduct our own review of this matter before that decision can be made,” Moore said in an e-mail to the Post. Citing confidentiality requirements under state law, city officials declined to provide more details until an internal review is completed and final actions are taken. “We have to conduct this process in a fair and equitable manner, and we have to respect the rights of the people spokeswoman involved,” Karen Wilkinson said in an email. “We need to ensure confidentiality until such time that this information becomes a public record. We do not wish to undermine an ongoing investigation.” Once the process is complete, the city will share all information allowed under state law, she said. City officials pledged to take action if warranted. “We fully intend to take action as to any evidence of misconduct that we may find,” Wilkinson said.

RALEIGH (AP) — Teenagers aren’t the only ones to blame for erratic driving tied to cell phones. Most of the motorists ticketed under North Carolina’s new texting ban are actually over the age of 25, and some are over the age of 60. More than 1,200 drivers have been cited since the law went into effect in December 2009, according to court records reviewed by the Associated Press. Violators face $100 fines, plus court costs. Brendan Byrnes, who works on the texting issue with AAA Carolinas, said young drivers with a grip on their cell phones have historically been a leading concern for safety advocates. But observers are increasingly seeing problems among adults behind the wheel who feel compelled to stay connected with work through e-mail, which also falls under North Carolina’s texting law. “This is really one of the biggest problems and the hurdles to not only fighting distracted driving but enact-


As some local high school seniors hope to secure a $26,000 Teaching Fellows scholarship to help pay for their education and better prepare them for their chosen profession, the future of the program is as uncertain as it has ever been. School systems across North Carolina are bracing for state cuts of up 10 percent, a figure at which the N.C. Department of Public Instruction estimates more than 5,000 teaching positions could be slashed. That’s forcing teaching fellows to adjust their expectations. Some, like 2005 South Rowan High School graduate Katie King, are teaching at grade levels they intended. Others are taking on more academic work to make themselves more marketable. Meanwhile, state public education officials say that while the Teaching Fellows program is not currently on the chopping block, everything must be considered with North Carolina facing a $3.5 billion budget shortfall. Even if the program survives, State Superintendent June Atkinson says, its requirements might need to be changed based on the fact that fewer than 60 percent of Teaching Fellows graduates are still in the classroom. Read Sarah Campbell’s look at the Teaching Fellows program in Sunday’s Salisbury Post.

Improving well-being through better nutrition


NC legislators challenge federal health care overhaul Steen and Warren also deal with annexation, eminent domain Staff and wire reports


Chef Mark Allison, dean of Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University’s Charlotte campus, stirs up a healthy concoction as his student, junior Amy Hellman, looks on Thursday during a healthy cooking demonstration at Kannapolis City Schools. The demonstration is part of the school system’s new Employee Wellness Program.

Professional chef shows Kannapolis City Schools employees how it’s done ANNAPOLIS — Kristen Weber will soon be sharing a couple of new recipes with her life skills classes at Kannapolis Middle School. She’ll be teaching them how to create healthy dishes she learned to assemble during a healthy cooking demonstration by chef Mark Allison Allison, dean of Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University’s Charlotte campus, gave an audience of about 50 Kannapolis City Schools’ employees a peek at how to make nutritious meals Thursday. He said the key to a lip-smacking healthy meal is simple. “Buy the freshest ingredients you can find, go to the Farmers Market and support your local economy,” he said. Allison said people shouldn’t shy away from making more complicated meals just because they don’t have gadgets like a melon scoop or garlic press. “All you really need is a good knife,” he said. The demonstration was part of the school system’s new Employee Wellness program, which launched Jan. 10. Dr. Pam Cain, the district’s superintendent, implemented the program to get employees to improve their wellbeing through better nutrition and exercise. “I want us to model healthy behavior for our students, but I also want our staff to know that we care about them as people,” she said. Cain is also hoping the program will be a springboard for student wellness. When the Biotechnology Academy at A.L. Brown High opens in August, it will include a health center where students can get sports physicals, nutrition counseling, immunizations and health risk assessments. “My vision is for all ninth-graders in Kannapolis City Schools to create their own wellness plans ...,” Cain said. “The statistics on childhood obesity get worse every day and we want to reverse that trend.” The school system is partnering with Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast to provide the comprehensive program free to employ-


ees. Participants can join the 411 Fit website to track their daily food consumption, receive exercise and nutrition tips, and monitor exercise amounts. “When we take care of ourselves, we become healthier and happier, and that’s what I want for everyone in Kannapolis City Schools,” Cain said. Participants who meet the weekly walking goal of five miles are registered to win prizes such as movie tickets and gift cards, which have been donated by local businesses. “The community has really gotten behind us,” Cain said. Cain said the goal isn’t necessarily to promote weight loss, but overall health, including stress management, disease prevention and emotional wellness. Employees welcomed the challenge of monitoring their diet and counting their steps by receiving a free water bottle and pedometer. “I love the wellness program, I think it’s fantastic,” Weber said. “It’s actually motivated me to get my butt in gear and exercise.” Weber’s been working out with a group of teachers in the weight room at Kannapolis Middle.

Chef Mark Allison said the most important kitchen tool is a good, sharp knife like the one he shows here. “I actually canceled my gym membership because I can just work out after school,” she said. Charles McKinley, English as a second language teacher at Kannapolis Intermediate, said he meets the weekly walking goal by walking his dog every day. “She loves it so that’s another incentive,” he said. Jodi Horne, a teacher assistant at Kannapolis Intermediate, said 411 Fit provides a daily health score from A to F. “I’m motivated by the scores,” she said. “It’s keeping me on track because I have to enter every single bite that I put in my mouth and work on getting my steps.” The team aspect of the initiative is another plus in McKinley’s opinion. “It’s a nice focus to know that everybody else is doing it, it’s an incentive,” he said.

With the first few days of the new General Assembly session over, Rowan County’s two House members have signed on to bills dealing with annexation, eminent domain and an effort to turn back part of the federal government’s health care overhaul. Rep. Fred Steen, Rep. Harry Warren and Sen. Andrew Brock, all Republicans, took their seats in a legislature this week in Raleigh that is under Republican control for the first time in more than a century. Brock was not a primary or co-sponsor on any legislation in the body’s first couple of days doing business, according to the General Assembly website. Steen and Warren are co-sponsors of a bill that would place a moratorium on involuntary annexations and another STEEN measure that would prohibit local governments from using eminent domain for economic development The moratorium would prohibit municipalities from conducting involuntary annexations through June 30, 2011 and would delay until WARREN then any annexation ordinance with an effective date after the bill becomes law. Warren and Steen also signed on to a bill that adds North Carolina to other states challenging the federal health care overhaul law. The House Judiciary Committee BROCK voted 23-16 along party lines to approve legislation that aims to block a provision of the federal law requiring Americans to buy insurance beginning in 2014 or pay a penalty. Democrats argued that requiring everyone who can find an affordable policy to buy coverage reduces the costs everyone pays for treating the uninsured. Democrats also questioned why North Carolina should spend on a legal fight other states already are fighting. Warren has not been a primary sponsor on any bill yet. Steen is a primary sponsor on a housekeeping bill, one that would make clear the House Committee on State Personnel is the one that carries out the duties of a pensions committee.



Police to charge man leaving trail of blood with being drunk and disorderly Clifton Thomas wasn’t sure who stabbed a belligerent man who walked onto his porch, but he wasn’t at all comfortable with the man being on his property. The man walked up to Thomas, who lives at 1016 N. Main St., and began talking. “I went out to have a cigarette and he came bleeding on my porch,” Thomas said. Thomas said the man told him someone across the street stabbed him. The man then told Thomas he would cut Thomas, to which Thomas said he could defend himself being a former soldier. Eddie Cross was making a Lay’s snack delivery at M & L Mini Mart when the man jumped into the back of his delivery truck.

“I told him he had to get out of my truck,” Cross said. The man told Cross he’d been shot and then said he’d been stabbed. Cross said he didn’t have anything in his truck that would allow him to help the bleeding man, but he offered to call 911 for the man. “I said, ‘I can’t help you. I said I’ll pray for you,’ ” Cross said. But the man said he didn’t want police involved and threatened to cut Cross’s throat. The man left a trail of blood on the steps of the delivery truck. Salisbury Police bandaged the man’s hand and spoke with him before emergency services personnel arrived. Paramedics and EMTs treated the man at the scene. Police said they planned to charge the man for being drunk and disorderly, but he


had not been processed at the magistrate’s office Friday night. Contact reporter Shavonne Potts at 704-7974253.

Thursday night robbery at Papa Topps still being investigated by police Salisbury Police are investigating a Thursday night armed robbery at Papa Topps store at 902 S. Main St. Salisbury Police say a black man, dressed all in black, came into the store around 7 p.m., showed a gun and was given money. He left through the front door, and police said it was a quick operation, and the man was in the store for only a few minutes.

The only people in the store at the time were the owners. The suspect is described as a black male, 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing about 140 pounds. Deputy Chief Steve Whitley said officers and a K-9 arrived within minutes of the 911 call, but the K-9 didn’t pick up anything. “It’s just a nice little momand-pop neighborhood store,”

Whitley said. “But, unfortunately, the hoodlums, they don’t descriminate, they will rob anybody in any place.” Detectives have been assigned to the case, Whitley said. Papa Topps has been a target of break-ins over the years, but the last time a clerk at the store was robbed at gunpoint was in 2002.

Quick response from four fire departments saves 100-year-old house from total loss A quick response by firefighters kept a 100-year-old home in western Rowan County from burning down Friday morning. The fire at the home of Dean Campbell, 4245 South River Church Road, was called in shortly after midnight. Campbell’s son and cousin were at home watching television when the fire started in a bedroom. Rowan fire investigators

Deborah Horne and Kevin Dennis investigated and found the fire started after the two failed to properly discard of cigarettes. Campbell was at work when the fire started. Campbell’s son told investigators he tried to put out the fire using buckets of water, then called 911. Firefighters contained the blaze to one bedroom. “The fire departments did a fantastic job,” Horne said.

“A few more minutes and they would have lost the whole house, probably.” Woodleaf, Scotch Irish, Rowan-Iredell and County Line fire departments responded. Horne said Campbell was not sure if he has insurance. The Elizabeth Hanford Dole Chapter of the American Red Cross was helping the family with shelter and clothing.

Discarded ashes may hold potential for fire away from the home, or, buried in mineral soil in your garden. “Those are really the only two safe options,” Poole said. “Anything that’s plastic or paper will melt if the ashes are still hot.” Ashes should never be put in a paper bag, box or other flammable container, and should never be stored in a garage, deck or wooded area, he said. Poole said three fires last week in Rowan County were due to improper ash disposal. “Anytime you’ve got low relative humidity and you’ve got wind, and leaf and pine litter on the top of the ground, that’s generally what carries the fires,” he said. And debris burning is another big problem in the winter. “People don’t tend to their fire and it gets away from

Mission specialist Ronald McNair was a South Carolina native, but graduated in 1971 from North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro. Every year since the disaster, McNair’s alma mater has organized a ceremony in his honor, and for the last 10 years has included a symposium bringing together scholars from around the country. This year’s events, which were scheduled to conclude on Friday, included a round-table discussion with friends of McNair’s along with other events. “This is a classic role model for students, showing what you can achieve with hard work and perseverance,” said Joyce Brown, director of the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program at the university. “He was one of our own.”

remains NASA’s most highprofile disaster and a searing memory for millions, who remember the indelible images and nationwide grief. Christa McAuliffe, a New Hampshire school teacher who was the first participant in the federal agency’s “Teacher in Space” program to join a shuttle mission, remains the most famous victim of the tragedy. But Smith, who carried a North Carolina flag along on what was his first space shuttle mission, remains foremost in the minds of people around Beaufort. “He was just a farmboy, maybe a little bit smarter than most,” said his younger brother Pat, a fellow Navy veteran who still lives in the area. “From the time he was about 15 years old he wanted to fly, and he worked hard and did it.” For Pat Smith, the most lasting sign of his brother’s legacy is the scholarship fund that was created shortly after the disaster. Since then, the Michael Smith fund has given out more than $50,000 in schol-

This Jan. 28, 1986 image made from a television screen shows the space shuttle Challenger after exploding during its launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla.


RALEIGH (AP) — Even before he could drive a car, Michael Smith wanted to fly. The Beaufort native, who grew up a few miles down the road from a small local airport that now bears his name, qualified for his pilot’s license a few days before turning 16. Twenty-four years later, he was the pilot on the ill-fated Challenger space shuttle mission that killed all seven astronauts aboard. Smith’s name still resonates 25 years later in the coastal town he called home: it’s on a memorial near the waterfront, on the airport where he learned to fly as a teenager and in a part of Beaufort Elementary School packed with exhibits about his life and the space program. “So many people here in Beaufort knew Michael Smith,” said Vicki Fritz, principal of the school, which opened the Michael J. Smith Air and Space Mini-Museum last year on the 24th anniversary of the tragedy. Inside, murals depict a midnight-blue night sky dotted with stars. Memorabilia ranges from a tire that was on the space shuttle that followed the Challenger to mementoes from a career that included a stint as a naval aviator in the Vietnam War. A recent donation to the museum is a letter Smith typed and sent to a cousin around the time of his 16th birthday. Along with talk about high school basketball and an upcoming dance, Smith confesses to being nervous about whether he’ll get his pilot’s license, and a chance to fly solo. At the bottom is an ecstatic postscript: “I went flying, all right. I soloed!!!!” The Challenger disaster, broadcast live on television on the morning of Jan. 28, 1986,

This weekend’s dry and windy weather will be the perfect combination for fires to spark and get out of hand, and the North Carolina Division of Forest Resources wants you to be prepared — particularly those who use wood heaters or fireplaces. Rowan County Forest Ranger David Poole said winter wood heaters and fireplace ashes are responsible for many wood and house fires during the winter months and often start several days after the ashes have been thrown out. Poole said a bucket of ashes can hold hot embers for several days, and the embers should always be put in a metal container

them,” Poole said. Unless there is a burning ban in place, anyone can burn, and a permit is encouraged, Poole said. From 12 midnight to 4 p.m. you do have to have a permit, but from 4 p.m. until 11:59 p.m., no permit is required. “We always encourage people to get one anyway, just to be safe,” Poole said. “It is the law; you should have one.” The backs of permits are informational, and include air quality rules and safety tips, Poole said. To get a free burning permit, contact a local county burning permit agency, or visit and click on the “Burning Permits” link. For more information on burning permits or proper ash removal, contact the Rowan County Division of Forest Resources at 704-216-8993.

NC town recalls native son who died aboard shuttle BEAUFORT (AP) — The 25th anniversary of the Challenger space shuttle disaster is a solemn occasion for the country, and for the North Carolina coastal town of Beaufort (BOH’-furt). One of the seven astronauts who died on the shuttle was born and raised in the town. Mission pilot Michael Smith learned to fly airplanes as a teenager at a small local airport now named for him. Younger brother Pat Smith MICHAEL SMITH

says the pilot’s memory is kept alive in local memorials, but also in a scholarship fund that’s given out more than $50,000 since it began. Part of Beaufort Elementary School has been turned into a museum dedicated to Smith and to the space program.

Safety news & tomorrows worth a listen Yesterdays Park Avenue holds fond memories for me

Dart to more evidence that being too plugged in is hazardous to your health. You’ve heard about the risks of driving while distracted by cell-phone use, whether talking or texting. Now we’re told that walking while distracted may be a problem, too. After four years of decreases in pedestrian fatalities, the numbers rose slightly in the first half of 2010 (second half statistics aren’t complete yet), and some safety experts say the use of electronic gadgets may be at least partly to blame. While they may not be at risk of running off the road and crashing into a tree, pedestrians and joggers who wear headphones or earbuds could be more likely to step in front of an oncoming vehicle or fail to notice a “don’t walk” signal. The Road Runners Club of America urges runners to leave the headphones at home when exercising, or to use only one earpiece if you absolutely must have an inspirational soundtrack thumping in the background. Sounds like healthy advice for walkers as well. • • •

Dart to the pit-bull attacks that injured two horses in separate incidents in Rowan County. The horse owners are understandably outraged that the attacks occurred. There’s no excuse for any dog, let alone a pit bull, running loose in the neighborhood. While maimed horses are bad enough, it could have been worse. Two weeks ago in Waxhaw, a 5-year-old girl was mauled to death by pit bulls.

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

Love me when I least deserve it, because that’s when I really need it. — Swedish proverb

Moderately confused

hen the doorbell rang, I almost didn’t answer it. It was early (for us nocturnal types) and I looked bad. I don’t mean a little bad. I mean seriously, plug-ugly bad. I hadn’t showered, dressed or put on any makeup and my hair looked like a wig for Edward Scissorhands’ grandmother. But I was expecting a delivery I didn’t want to miss. So I took a swig of coffee, pulled on ratty sweats and ran to open the door. It was my neighbor, Brett. I didn’t know that until he told me. He said his name and I blinked a few times until he pointed to the house across the street and I remembered. Four years ago, when my husband and I moved here, Brett was the only soul on the block who welcomed us to the neighborhood. SHARON In time, we’d RANDALL meet others on the street or over the fence, but he was the only one who came to our door to offer a neighborly hand. Isn’t that what neighbors are for? Brett scored big with me for that. He told me that he and his wife had bought the place across from us as a second home, but seldom got to use it. She was suffering from Alzheimer’s, he said, so they spent most of their time at their home in Arizona. I wanted to hear more of his story and hoped for a chance to talk again. At times, I’d see a car in the driveway or lights that suggested someone was home. But four years passed and I never saw him again until today. Four years is a long time. Given how I looked, I’m sure he thought I’d aged considerably. “I want to thank you,” he said, “for watching out for my house.” When I shook my head, he grinned and said his nephew had told him what I’d done. Oh, that. One evening, I spotted a truck in Brett’s driveway. Someone who was not Brett was cleaning out his garage. Without giving it much thought, I stuck my head out the door and yelled, “Hello?” Turns out it was Brett’s nephew, who swore to me he was acting with permission. I’m not sure what I’d have done if he had said, “Actually, I’m robbing this guy blind, and when I finish with him, you’re next.” I grinned back at Brett. “It was nothing,” I said. “Isn’t that what neighbors are for?” I was about to ask about his wife, when he told me she had passed away some months ago. “Oh,” I said, “I’m so sorry.” “She was ill for 10 years,” he said, “so I had plenty of time to grieve. I still miss her, but it’s not like a sudden loss.” I nodded. “My first husband died of cancer. He was ill for four years,” I said. “Grieving is hard. But it’s easier in some ways than living in dread.” We talked for a while, saying more with our eyes than with our words, the way people do when they share in common something sacred. He’s in town for only a few days, he said, but plans to be back soon and stay longer. I hope we have a chance to talk again. He can tell me his story and I’ll tell him mine. I’d like to share with him, if he wants to hear it, the advice a friend once gave to me: “The challenge for you now, having lost your loved one, is to live a life that is honoring to his memory, but at the same time, that life moves forward so that only one person has died and not two.” Those words, for me, have been a life raft. Maybe he will find them helpful, too. Maybe we can be, not just neighbors, but friends. Maybe his nephew will help me clean my garage. “Next time you’re here,” I said, “we’ll have you over for dinner.” “You don’t need to do that.” “I know,” I said, laughing, as I hugged him goodbye, “but it would be our pleasure.” And isn’t that what neighbors are for? • • • Contact Sharon Randall at

hen I read the recent articles about the “New Tomorrows” classes at Park Avenue United Methodist Church, I was reminded of all the “new tomorrows” I have faced in my life. I don’t know anything about the classes except the article described activities like learning to cook, yoga, and Bible studies. I began to think back on some of the “new tomorrows” I have experienced throughout my life. One reason I was so interested in the article about the neighborhood around Park Avenue was because I actually lived on Long Street until I was seven years old. Our duplex apartment was right behind the store at the intersection of Long Street and Park Avenue but long before the store was built. It was a wonderful neighborhood with nice people all around. My first year and a LINDA half, my siblings and I walked BECK to A.T. Allen School on the corner of Long Street and East Innes. On Saturday mornings we walked to the theater at the Square to watch cowboys and Indians. Then we would go spend the day playing in the yard and acting out what we had seen on the screen. Evidently my mother thought we would be safe, and I don’t remember any kind of danger or trouble. She worked third shift at one of the mills, and during the day when she slept, a black lady named Creola tended to us. One of the first new tomorrows I remember was in December 1954 when my mother remarried and we moved to the mill village in Yadkin. A lot of new tomorrows happened there, but that’s a whole different story. My friend, “the other Linda,” and I were discussing this article and she reminded me of some different quotes about “tomorrow” and they read as follows: • Tomorrow never really comes because when it gets here it is today. • Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. • Yesterday is history; we can’t go back. Tomorrow is a mystery because only God knows His plan for our tomorrows. Today is a present from God, the gift of life; how we use it is a decision we make. • Give yesterday’s regrets and tomorrow’s anxieties over to God. I do believe our choices today can affect our tomorrows. Drugs, alcohol and tobacco can affect our physical health, and poor health can definitely affect our mental health. Study of God’s word and the actions of Christians like those at Park Avenue


Linda Beck, at bottom of steps, poses for a 1952 birthday picture with her mother, Ada Spry, sister Mary and brother Tommy. The duplex where they lived at that time was in the Park Avenue neighborhood. Methodist Church can help us find brighter “new tomorrows” on dismal “present days.” I’ve never been on street drugs, but for many years I was addicted to smoking cigarettes. My health problems have exposed me to many different prescription drugs and often changing prescriptions opened up more “new tomorrows,” some of which have been very challenging. For many folks, at times, every day seems too much like the day before. Some people are bored with life and are seeking excitement in dangerous places. They may have jobs they don’t like, or in today’s world are unable to find a job at all. This can result in the destruction of many families who can no longer afford a place to live. I thank God every day for the roof over my head, my power and heat, water and available food. Finding a job one likes can result in a great “new tomorrow.” Going back to school, finding a new romance, recovery from illness can all result in “new tomorrows.” One of my favorite scriptures in the past 18 years has been Matthew 6:33-34, when Jesus talks about worry: “But ask first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” • • • Linda Beck lives in Woodleaf.

Where does N.C. go from here? ... It is fair to say we have lost our I confidence and have become too

t will be difficult, inevitably painful and might take many months but we are confident that somehow our legislators will fix the 3.7 billion dollar projected shortfall in North Carolina’s budget when they come back into session this Wednesday. But just plugging the budget hole won’t necessarily put people to work, improve education, build roads, provide essential services or achieve any of the other things our state needs in order to move forward. So the question must be asked, where do we go from here? North Carolina is much like Alice in Lewis Carroll’s classic, “Alice in Wonderland,” standing at a crossroads. And the Cheshire Cat’s great wisdom should not go unheard: “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” TOM To look ahead sometimes it CAMPBELL is wise to look back. From our earliest colonial settlements we have always been an honest, mostly lower to middle-class, hard-working people who strive to make life better for ourselves and our children. Boll weevils. Wars. Economic recessions. Storms. We’ve encountered them all and every time we seemed on the verge of really prospering, making some big advances, something happened to set us back a rung, or two. Over the past 30 years our state has lost our textile, furniture and other manufacturing jobs to countries paying cheaper wages. Geographical inequalities grew as more left to find jobs in urban areas. Public education improved for a time but has declined, with

timid to attempt big dreams. too many dropouts, growing ethnic disparities and stagnant test scores. Our road system, once a source of pride, is now congested, in poor repair and not keeping up with our growth. We thought ourselves a good government state but now acknowledge corruption and ineffectiveness. We once believed we were headed in the right direction, but it is fair to say we have lost our confidence and have become too timid to attempt big dreams. Where to go from here? We don’t have the definitive answer but can offer some guidelines to help chart the course. We want an education system that provides our young people with the necessary skills demanded in the marketplace and the capacity to enjoy contemporary society. That marketplace must be a climate where businesses, especially small firms, can thrive and prosper without undue and unnecessary regulation, taxation or uneven playing field. North Carolina deserves a well built and maintained transportation system to move people and goods efficiently. And we want to restore our legacy as a people willing to help those who cannot provide for themselves. Our government leadership should insist on accountability and be willing to prioritize where our resources are spent. • • • Tom Campbell moderates the public affairs program “NC Spin” and formerly served as the assistant treasurer for the state of North Carolin

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Human medications including dropped pills sickened more pets in the United States last year than any other toxin. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the third year in a row that human medications top the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; list of top 10 toxins, released Friday. Over-the-counter medicines with ibuprofen and acetaminophen, antidepressants and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder medicine topped the list. Janet Hardie in Groveland, Calif., knows the danger well: Earlier this year, she brought home incontinence pills and set them on a table beside her chair in the living room. A while later, she looked down and Priscilla, her year-old Lhasa apso, was tearing into the blister pack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She had eaten three. At least I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find them,â&#x20AC;? Hardie said. She and her neighbor called the ASPCA hotline in Urbana, Ill. A veterinarian had them weigh the dog and read the prescription information, then feed the dog a half piece of white bread and two teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide. Then they kept Priscilla active so the contents of her stomach would fizz and she would vomit within 15 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The doctor was on the telephone for about an hour,â&#x20AC;? Hardie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like having her here, she was so precise.â&#x20AC;? About a quarter of the 168,000 calls received by the hotline in 2010 were about pets who had swallowed human drugs, said veterinarian Tina Wismer, senior director of veterinary outreach and education at the center. The Pet Poison Helpline in Minneapolis, Minn., run by SafetyCall International, has handled more than 750,000 calls since 2004, said veterinarian Justine Lee, the helplineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s associate director of veterinary services. She estimated half their calls are about human medicine. The poison centers do not track deaths because there are too many variables. Pet owners wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always know what their animals have gotten into â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they just know they are showing symptoms like lethargy, vomiting, seizures or refusing food. A dog that has swallowed pills to treat ADHD will get agitated. What happens when a pet gets hold of birth control, Viagra or Rogaine pills? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Luckily birth control pills today have very small amounts of estrogen in them. We use Viagra for dogs with pulmonary hypertension and it was originally marketed to regulate blood pressure. Rogaine can be very dangerous, especially in cats, and can cause heart failure,â&#x20AC;? Wismer said.

In a nationally televised address at midnight, President Hosni Mubarak made vague promises of social reform but did not offer to step down. He also defended his security forces â&#x20AC;&#x201D; outraging protesters calling for an end to his nearly 30-year regime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want Mubarak to go and instead he is digging in further,â&#x20AC;? protester Kamal Mohammad said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He thinks it is calming down the situation but he is just angering people more.â&#x20AC;? Pouring onto the streets after Friday noon prayers, protesters ignored government measures that included cutting off the Internet and mobile-phone services in Cairo and other areas, calling the army into the streets and imposing a nationwide nighttime curfew. President Barack Obama told a news conference he called Mubarak and urged the Egyptian leader to take â&#x20AC;&#x153;concrete stepsâ&#x20AC;? to expand rights and refrain from violence against protesters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The United States will continue to stand up for the rights of the Egyptian people and work with their government in pursuit of a future that is more just, more free and more hopeful,â&#x20AC;?

Romans has two pit bulls and is fostering a third. “To me, it’s a dog attack,” he said. “It’s unfortunate that people — owners — aren’t responsible for their animals, Earle A. Koontz & Peter C.

This week, Michael Gordon was charged with involuntary manslaughter after his two pit bulls mauled and killed a 5year-old in Waxhaw. It’s unknown if the dogs in Waxhaw had been known to attack, but some say if a dog does it once, it will try it again. “I think they should remove them after the first attack,” Fisher said. “I’m living in fear that it’s going to happen again.” Rufty agrees. “You can’t sit there 24 hours a day guarding your horse with a gun,” Rufty said. “The fact is, is that it’s happened, and I can’t stop it. It could come up here tomorrow and do the same thing.” Animal Control Officer Ann Frye took Lucy from her home, Fisher said, and said the dog would be at the shelter until a court decides otherwise. But that doesn’t solve the problem with irresponsible

A neighbor, who wanted to remain anonymous, said he saw the attack. “It ran across the street in the pasture and he ran it all over the pasture,” the neighbor said. “Then I seen it come back this way. “I would see the horses run by and he was jumping up at their neck. He kept right after the horses. And if he gets out again, he’s going to go back.” Arrowood said Baby was a rescue dog that his wife had brought home only a few days earlier. He said Baby got out of the house because the door wasn’t latched. “It was an accident, a one time thing,” he said. “I’m sorry, but it’s not necessarily the dog’s fault, and it’s not the horse’s.” Arrowood apologized for the attack and agreed to pay for the vet bills in increments, Rufty said. nnn

He took photographs on his travels and developed a multimedia slide series on Biblical archaeology. In 1999, while pastoring a large church in Southern California, he was leading a group of pastors in the footsteps of Paul through Greece, Turkey and Syria. While there, his youth pastor, Danny Chan, suggested that they make movies of the programs, rather than simply using slides. Moore wasn’t convinced. “That’s why I’m the senior pastor and you are the youth pastor, “ he thought.

In 2001, he began to film his first video series, “In the Footsteps of Paul.” The series was filmed entirely on location — in all the important places in Paul’s life, including Turkey, Israel, Syria, Jordan, Greece and Italy. He quickly saw the possibilities as people responded positively to the series, including people who were educated but weren’t church-goers. In 2003, Moore quit his job as evangelism ministries director of It is Written Television and started his non-profit group, The Biblical World, the goal of which was to “produce new and compelling media that communicates the faith of Jesus to contemporary westernthinking people.” He then began to focus on his Paul series, which he promoted with companion study guides. With a worldwide audience, the se-

Moore’s recent project, which he’s spent the past four years on, is a 28episode series called “Tracing the Footsteps of Jesus,” which he hopes to be completed in a few months. He’s also shot a pilot for the Discovery Channel. In doing the “Jesus” series, Moore says the most surprising thing he gained was an understanding of the first century messiah mentality for Jewish people. To understand first century Judaism has been very revealing, he says, about why the Jewish people have had “problems with Jesus as the messiah.” For more information about Tony Moore and The Biblical World, go to

Conditions will be far better in the next solar cycle than they have been for a long time. Significant opportunities could now develop that never have been there for you previously. Make the most of them. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Unique, personal benefits can be derived from exposure to friendly people. Find the time to involve yourself in some type of enjoyable group activity. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — If you focus on singular goals and do not get off on tangents, more than a few significant objectives can be achieved. Do what you can to make your life easier and happier. Aries (March 21-April 19) — An old friend of yours who has helped you out in the past may once again come through for you, by helping to bring about something you are unable to do on your own. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Although others may do all that they can to dodge challenging situations, you will feed on difficulties as part of a balanced breakfast. It’s the way you do things that makes everything so much easier. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Your judgment could be much keener than usual, especially in handling some significant matters. Equally important, you’ll know how to stay within your perimeter of security. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Allocate as much time as possible to working on endeavors that you truly enjoy. It’s a known fact that when we do what we like, the results are usually productive and can even be profitable. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — It’s more than worth it to make a concerted effort to shore up a relationship that is especially important. A rewarding experience can take place between you and that special someone. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Be alert for a developing situation concerning a special interest of yours. Opportunity is out there, and it could be utilized to your advantage. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Your ego might get a huge boost from some important people who find you or your methods extremely appealing, and will tell you so. Savor each welldeserved nugget of praise. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You aren’t apt to find a better day to go bargain hunting with a good friend who knows how to help you discover that great deal you’re looking for. You’ll find exactly what you want. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Do not delegate assignments to others that you can do better. Anything that bears your personal imprint could come out better than usual at this time. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Follow through on any development showing favorable signs of Lady Luck being on your side. She is making a special effort to shore up what is near and dear to your heart. United FeatUre Syndicate

Medication may cause excessive urination The Christmas Competition answers is some debate about that. My recommendation is typically to drink as much or as little as your thirst dictates; however, that is not specific enough for some people who want, it seems, a blueprint for healthy living down to the number of glasses of water to drink or the number of times a day they need to defecate. It’s just plain silly. Everyone is different, so what each person requires to be healthy is different. What is normal for me is not normal for you. With that in mind, and to the best of my knowledge, there is no weight-to-water equation. Drink if you’re thirsty; don’t if you’re not. If that isn’t good enough, try drinking enough water so that, when you urinate, it is a pale yellow color. This will ensure that you are taking in enough water to aid the kidneys in flushing toxins and waste from the body and maintaining a normal electrolyte balance. (Certain vitamins or medications can influence the color of the urine.) Keep in mind that it is possible to drink too much water. This will cause a potentially life-threatening condition known as water intoxication. It occurs when a person drinks an excessive amount of water in a short span of time (usually over a few hours), resulting in an electrolyte imbalance that causes the water in the blood to migrate to cells. These cells then swell. If this occurs in the brain, there is no place for the cells to stretch and can result in brain damage, seizures, coma, respiratory distress and even death.

After West leads the heart king, what is the correct line of play in (1) six spades; (2) seven spades? • Lead a diamond to the ace, then play a low diamond from each hand, allowing for a 5-1 break. • Cash your top diamonds and ruff a diamond or two high in the dummy, returning to hand with a trump and, if necessary, a heart ruff. • What is your proposed auction? See the diagram, perhaps with South bidding seven spades (especially if using Roman Key Card Blackwood). But all sensible sequences will be accepted. • You hold the North hand.

Sheen enters rehab; CBS sitcom on hiatus LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charlie Sheen has voluntarily entered a rehabilitation center, a decision that is putting his top-rated CBS sitcom on production hiatus. Publicist Stan Rosenfield said Friday that the star of CBS’ “Two and a Half Men” was entering an undisclosed facility and is grateful to all who have expressed their concern for him. No additional information, including the name or location of the rehab center, was provided.

What would you respond if East opens (a) one club — one heart; (b) one diamond — redouble (10-plus points) or one heart; (c) one heart — two no-trump (10plus support points and fourplus hearts); (d) one spade — redouble. • You hold the East hand. West opens two clubs, strong, artificial and forcing. You respond two diamonds, usually 0-7 points.

who prescribed the medication, and request a trial of another medication in a different class to control your blood pressure. If the medication is to blame, you should start to see improvement within a few days to a few weeks of stopping it. As a matter of reference, a normal bladder can hold between 300 and 400 milliliters of urine. On average, a person urinates four to five times during the day and up to once at night, passing approximately 2,500 milliliters of urine each day. Problems arise when fluid levels are increased, causing more urination; fluid levels decrease, causing less urination and possible dehydration; the bladder muscles weaken or signals to the brain become scrambled and a host of other malfunctions can occur. Speak with your physician and, in the meantime, limit your fluid consumption, especially before bed, to reduce the amount of urine your body is producing. Be sure to avoid dehydration, however. Dear Dr. Gott: The only answer to my question that I find in written materials or on Internet sites is always the same: eight glasses of water per day. That across-the-board answer doesn’t seem to take weight into account. A friend of mine weighs 280 pounds, and I weigh 140. Having twice the flesh that I do, shouldn’t he be consuming, on average, about twice the water that I should? Is there some general equation for average daily water consumption that is weight-dependent? Dear Reader: People are too hung up on drinking a specific amount of water each day. The rule used to be eight 8-ounce glasses every day. Now there

Expect more snow to sweep through the Northern US on Saturday. Another low pressure system that developed in central Canada will strengthen as it moves over the Great Lakes and into the Northeast. While over the Great Lakes, flow from the northwest will pick up additional moisture and trigger lake effect snow fall along the southeastern shores of the lakes. Most areas will see between 1 to 2 inches of snow, but expect up to 4 inches of heavy, wet snow along the shores of western New York state, as well as northern Pennsylvania and northern Ohio. A few light flurries will linger over Minnesota and Wisconsin, with little accumulation expected. Highs will remain in the 20s and 30s across the Northern US. In the South, a ridge of high pressure over the Gulf of Mexico continues bringing dry and mild weather to the Southeast. In the western Gulf, onshore flow will push moisture over northeastern Mexico and southeastern Texas, which will kick up scattered rain showers by evening. Expect highs to remain in the 70s over the Southern Plains and in the 60s across the Southeast. In the West, wet and cloudy conditions return to the West Coast as a low pressure system dips into the Pacific Northwest and northern California. This system will bring more scattered showers to Oregon and Washington, while California will see increasingly cloudy skies and chances for rain showers in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will remain seasonable across the West with highs in the 50s and 60s.

SAN DIEGO — A strong finish by Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson made them feel better about their rounds Friday on opposite ends of Torrey Pines, and better about their chances of catching Bill Haas. Haas , slowly turning into the player everyone thought he would be, made eight birdies on the South Course for a 6-under 66, giving him a two-shot lead over Anthony Kim going into the weekend at the Farmers Insurance Open. “A nice 36 (holes) on the weekend could turn this into a great week,” Haas said.

On a night where the battle between student sections was just as intense, the Falcons pulled away after a sluggish third quarter at Falcon Gym. West maintained a double-digit lead for the rest of the night after Sherrill’s trey with 5:56 left and avenged a 69-60 loss in the Moir Classic to beat the Cougars for the second time this season. “It’s a heated rivarly so we just had to calm down and play our game,” Sherrill said.

The group of Duke basketball players Mike Krzyzewski refers to as “the other team” is quietly becoming a November memory. That’s the team the Duke coach led for the first eight games of the season — the team with fabulous freshman Kyrie Irving at point guard. It was, in all likelihood, the best college team in the land, too. Krzyzewski basically has said as much on several occasions.

With Irving sidelined by a toe injury on his right foot and possibly kaput for the season, what’s left is a cast Krzyzewski likes to call “this team.” “This team” KRZYZEWSKI trailed Virginia and Maryland in the second halves of ACC games in Cameron Indoor Stadium and was handed a 66-61 loss at Florida State on Jan. 12. “This team” is not the best in the na-

tion and may never reach that level. But as Thursday’s 84-68 win over Boston College indicated, the Blue Devils (19-1, 6-1 ACC) are still good and getting better by the day at a time in the season when some fast-starters begin to sputter. Like the overwhelming majority of this season’s ACC litter, first-year coach Steve Donahue’s Eagles (14-7, 43) aren’t strong enough to provide a definitive reading on Duke’s national standing without Irving.

Knox, Erwin: champs From staff reports

Knox’s girls and Erwin’s boys won championships in the Rowan County Middle School Conference’s eighthgrade basketball tournament held at Southeast on Friday. Seth Wyrick’s driving layup with eight seconds to play gave the Erwin boys (15-2) a 47-45 victory in a thriller over No. 2 West Rowan. West’s boys led 14-12 after a quarter behind Alexis Archie's seven points. Erwin took a 26-22 halftime lead. West was on top 40-36 after three quarters. Baskets by Jack Weisensel and Conor Honeycutt pulled Erwin within 42-40. After a free throw by West's Celexus Long, Seth Wyrick came up with two big plays. First, he knocked in a 3-pointer to tie the score at 43. Seconds later, he came up with a steal and missed a transition layup. However, Honeycutt followed with a putback for a 45-43 lead. West tied it up on M.J. Rayner’s putback with 36 seconds to play. Erwin held the ball until Seth Wyrick found an opening in West’s zone and drove in for the winning basket. West missed a 3-pointer from midcourt at the horn. Coach Craig Johnson’s Eagles were led by Honeycutt’s 14 points and seven rebounds. Harrison Bell had 11 points and eight rebounds. Seth Wyrick had 10 points and six boards. Samuel Wyrick, his twin, also made two 3s, scored eight points and contributed seven assists. West, coached by Sam Moore, finished 13-4. Archie, who sat out the fourth quarter with four fouls until the 2:14 mark, had six rebounds and three assists. Rayner added 14 points and six assists. Long scored 10 points.  Knox’s girls (16-1) edged Corriher-Lipe 34-31. Knox led 17-13 at halftime. The Trojans held a 28-23 lead after three quarters.

Knox got the final three points at the foul line on two free throws by Demeria Robinson and one by Bryanna Caldwell. Ashley Blaire got coach Larry Speelman's Trojans off to a fast start with seven first-quarter points and finished with 12 points, nine rebounds and three blocked shots.

He had a 69 and was five shots behind, but with only 11 players ahead of him. Woods ran off four straight birdies early in his round and at one point was

 North Hills basketball The North Hills varsity girls dropped a 41-40 battle to Woodland. Abby Lane scored 18 points for the Eagles. Lauren Butner had seven, Natalie Whicker scored six, and Candace-Craige Lyerly had five.  The North Hills middle schoolboys basketball team defeated Mooresville Christian 52-27. Leading the way for North Hills was Jay Wood with 11 points and Leonard Murdock with eight. Luke Humble, Grayson Whicker, Wes Fazia, Logan Miller and Alex Link scored six each for the Eagles (6-2).

only three shots out of the lead. But he twice took two shots to get out of bunkers and was as many as eight shots behind until the final half-hour. He laced a 5-iron into 12 feet for birdie on the 16th, made a 20-foot par putt after a plugged lie in the face of a bunker on the 17th, then hit 5-wood from 248 yards over the water and onto the green on the par-5 18th, twoputting for birdie. “It was a round that easily could have slipped away,” Woods said. The finish left him optimistic about ending the longest drought of his career. It has been 14 months since his last victory, dating to the Australian Masters in November 2009 just before his Thanksgiving night car accident.

The NBA roundup ... OKLAHOMA CITY — Kevin Durant scored 10 of his 40 points in the second overtime, Russell Westbrook added his third triple-double of the season and the Oklahoma City Thunder kept the Washington Wizards winless on the road with a 124-117 victory on Friday night. Durant converted a threepoint play, hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer from the right wing and then added a jumper from the top of the key as the Thunder finally took the lead for good. Washington fell to 0-22 on the road, matching the thirdworst start in NBA history. Nuggets 117, Cavaliers 103 CLEVELAND — Carmelo Anthony scored 33 points, Arron Afflalo added 23 and Denver avoided any embarrassment by handing the pathetic Cavaliers their team recordtying 19th straight loss. Still winless in 2011, the Cavs have also dropped 29 of 30 and are now just five losses away from breaking the NBA record of 23 consecutive defeats in one season. Heat 88, Pistons 87 MIAMI — Eddie House hit two deciding free throws with 6.5 seconds left, LeBron James led all scorers with 39 points and Miami rallied late to beat Detroit. James finished with nine

assists and eight rebounds for the Heat, who played without Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade and trailed by 10 late in the third quarter. Hawks 111, Knicks 102 ATLANTA — Joe Johnson scored 34 points and Atlanta turned back New York’s late comeback. Forward Marvin Williams made his first start since Dec. 29, giving the Hawks their original starting five for the first time in almost a month, but he may soon face an NBA suspension. Pacers 124, Nets 92 INDIANAPOLIS — Mike Dunleavy scored 30 points to help Indiana snap a six-game losing streak. Dunleavy shot 12 for 16 from the field and made 6of-7 3-pointers in his first game with 30 or more points in more than two months. He helped Indiana post its largest margin of victory this season. Grizzlies 99, 76ers 94 PHILADELPHIA — Rudy Gay scored 16 points and put Memphis ahead for good with a 6-footer in traffic, helping Memphis rally from a 21-point deficit and beat Philadelphia.

The NFL roundup ... MELBOURNE, Australia — Andy Murray doesn't have to worry about Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal this time. He is hardly in the clear, however, as he goes for his first major title. Murray won his Australian Open semifinal, defeating David Ferrer 4-6, 76 (2), 6-1, 7-6 (2). Next in line is 2008 champion and longtime friend Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final. There is also, of course, there's that long, long British drought. Fred Perry was the last British man to win a one of the four majors — way back in 1936. More than 270 Grand Slam tournaments have been contested in almost 75 years since Perry's victory, when Britain had a King and an empire. On the women's side, there will be a first-time Australian Open winner. Kim Clijsters goes for her fourth Grand Slam title today, but first outside the United States. She takes on China's Li Na, who can become the first Asian to win a Grand Slam tournament. Li already has broken new ground as the first Chinese to reach a Grand Slam singles final. Now she is hoping to go one better after eliminating topranked Caroline Wozniacki in the semifinals.

NFL rides remarkable ratings into Super Bowl Associated Press

The NFL roundup ... NEW YORK — To understand just how good the NFL's ratings have been this season — the best in about 15 years — it helps to take a moment and compare the league to the rest of TV. Games on CBS, Fox and NBC averaged 20 million viewers. The average for the prime-time programming on the four major networks, the most coveted slots on the schedule? Around 8.2 million viewers. That means NFL ratings are 144 percent better than television's top non-football lineups, and here's the kicker. That difference was 61 percent just five years ago. Even CBS Sports president Sean McManus, whose network has committed billions of dollars to broadcast the NFL, is wowed by the figures. "I'm continually pleased and really amazed by the kind of ratings that are being generated by all the networks during the regular season and postseason," McManus said on a recent conference call. "Go figure," he added. "The NFL is just on fire this year. Fan interest seems to be at an all-time high." Fox Sports chairman David Hill this week ticked off the many theories for the

The prevalence of high-definition television, which particularly benefits NFL games. The recession, which has kept more people at home. The ratings were already strong last season, then took another jump this year. Stars and story lines have lured in viewers, with a deep list of big-name quarterbacks playing well — or at least making news, in the case of Minnesota's Brett Favre. Appropriately, two franchises whose traditions tend to draw big ratings — Green Bay and Pittsburgh — are in the Super Bowl. "The secret weapon is Howard Katz, the NFL's

UNC FroM 1c Barnes’ arrival here was one of the biggest stories entering the season and still is — just not the way most expected. He signed with North Carolina over Duke, Kansas, Oklahoma, UCLA and Iowa State to cap one of the most publicized recruiting battles in years. And from his Hall of Fame coach to his new teammates, no one tried to temper expectations for a player who became the first freshman named preseason AP All-American since voting began before the 1986-87 season. But the 6-foot-8 forward widely regarded as the nation’s top recruit out of Ames, Iowa, hasn’t been an unstoppable force. Rather, he’s been solid but unspectacular with flashes of brilliance to tantalize fans heading into today’s rivalry game against North Carolina State. “I think he’s done a very good job,” N.C. State coach Sidney Lowe said. “I think it’s been unfair, the pressure and the expectations that’s been put upon him, which seems to be the trend. With our kids, the same thing: so much pressure put on these guys that if they don’t have 20 points or something, they feel that they’re failures.”

scheduler," Hill said. "If you're not getting the right matchups in the right markets, then you are not putting the most appealing thing in front of people. If you look at the matchups he's put together week in and week out and year in and year out, his hard work is shining."

Barnes is second on the Tar Heels (14-5, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) with 11.8 points per game, third in rebounding (5.2) and leads the team in minutes (27.2). He’s also struggled with his shot — 37 percent overall and 32 percent from 3-point range — while committing a team-high 43 turnovers. He has shot 50 percent or better just four times, including an 0-for-12 day in a loss to Minnesota in his third game. He’s even heard chants of “Overrated!” from fans in a few road games. Yet he’s also shown a knack for coming up with big late-game shots, which has helped the Tar Heels climb back near the top of the ACC standings after a miserable 17-loss season. “At the end of the day, you have to win games,” Barnes said. “That’s what I’m here for.” Barnes handles everything with the same matter-of-fact attitude and a maturity beyond his 18 years. He acknowledges having a target on his back and shrugs off criticism by saying media members are “just doing their job.” “There’s obviously a lot of basketball left in my career regardless of this year,” he said. “Regardless of how this season happens, the world is not going to end. The sun will come out and life will go on. So it’s one of those things you just have to look at and not

IRVIN’S ASSAULT MIAMI — Former Dallas Cowboys star Michael Irvin has settled a Florida lawsuit filed by a woman who claimed he sexually assaulted her at a hotel in 2007. INJURIES NEW YORK — The NFL players union says the average number of injuries has risen during the 2010 season. In a report released Friday called "Dangers of the Game of Football," the NFLPA says injuries increased from 3.2 to 3.7 per week per team and the share of players injured increased to 63 percent compared to a 2002-09 average of 59 percent. LABOR PAINS NEW YORK — The NFL already is feeling financial effects from the uncertainty of its labor negotiations. The league estimates its cumulative gross revenue losses could reach $1.7 billion by 2015 if there is no agreement with the players' union before the next regular season is scheduled to start. Sponsorship deal renewals already are problematic, with some companies telling the NFL they will not commit money if there is a work stoppage, according to Eric Grubman, NFL executive vice president of business operations.

just ask ‘Woe is me’ or wish this wasn’t happening, but to understand why it’s happening, to learn from it and get better as a player.” His biggest growth has come late in games. He hit the tying 3pointer with 12.7 seconds left in the 78-76 loss to Texas in December, had three key baskets in the final 31/2 minutes as the Tar Heels rallied from 16 down to beat Virginia Tech and hit the go-ahead 3 with about 4:58 left in last week’s win against Clemson. Then, on Wednesday night, Barnes hit a tough stepback jumper to tie Miami with about a minute left followed by the goahead 3 to beat the shot clock with 6.6 seconds left in the 74-71 victory. Before those two shots, Barnes was just 2 of 9 from the field. “I think with each and every game, he’s understanding more about what’s a good shot, what’s a bad shot, what kind of shot that he should take that he can make,” UNC coach Roy Williams said. “And his progression of being tough enough — or willing enough — to take a last shot and make it is something that’s pretty impressive.” His approach to the game impresses teammates, too. “Everything he puts his mind to, he gets better,” sophomore Dexter Strickland said. “And I respect that.”

COLLEGE FOOTBALL MOBILE, Ala. — Jake Locker could easily have skipped the Senior Bowl, just as he might have bypassed being a senior altogether. The former Washington Huskies star is among the candidates to be the first quarterback selected in the NFL draft after an up-anddown senior season. Instead of weighing the riskreward of a top-tier passer competing in an all-star game with scouts, coaches and team executives scrutinizing your every pass and move, Locker thought it was a no-brainer to play in Saturday's game for senior NFL prospects. "I just love playing football," Locker said. "It's an awesome game, and just the opportunity to come play against the best college players. It's an awesome opportunity." Regarded as a potential No. 1 overall pick after his junior season, Locker now is vying with underclassmen Cam Newton, Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Mallett to get the nod as the top quarterback taken in April. • IOWA CITY, Iowa — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said Friday that five of the

DUKE FroM 1c That, however, doesn’t alter the fact that Krzyzewski has done enough rebuilding on the run to solidly position “this team” for a No. 1 NCAA tournament regional bid, a probable opening weekend placement in Charlotte (March 18 and 20) and at least a puncher’s chance to reach another Final Four. With seniors Nolan Smith and Kyle Singler as leaders, it’s not surprising that Duke remains potent. Smith, the new point, is on track to win the ACC player of the year award in a landslide, and Singler will make his share of allstar teams. Smith was good for 28 points and eight assists Thursday, and Singler had 14 points even while shooting poorly. But after those two, the Blue Devils are becoming an example of the whole exceeding the individual pieces. Lanky sophomore Ryan Kelly, who looked lost all of 2009-10 and early this season, is emerging as a borderline offensive force. He had 14 points against the Eagles and has converted 20 of his last 26 field-goal attempts. On the perimeter, undersized Seth Curry (20 points, three as-

NBA NEW YORK — LeBron James and Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat are headed to the NBA All-Star game together, and Derrick Rose gave the Chicago Bulls their first starter since Michael Jordan. They will be joined in the Eastern Conference starting lineup by Amare Stoudemire, who will become the first New York Knicks player to start in nearly two decades, and Orlando center Dwight Howard, the leading votegetter in the conference with nearly 2.1 million. The Lakers’ Kobe Bryant earned his 13th straight All-Star selection for the Feb. 20 game at his home arena. He is one shy of the record held by Jerry West, Shaquille O’Neal and Karl Malone. Bryant, a three-time MVP of the All-Star game, was the overall leading vote-getter with more than 2.3 million.

sists) and Andre Dawkins have combined to fill the void that was created when Smith moved into Irving’s role. Inside, Mason Plumlee has developed into a monster rebounder while his brother Miles, who was a starter earlier, has mastered the difficult task of delivering instant energy in a reserve’s role. “Kyrie shaped our team, and we’re a whole different team without him in there,” Kelly said. “It took us a while, but now we’re beginning to get a flow. We needed to figure out what we had to do, especially on offense. But we’re starting to move better. We’re not stopping and waiting with the ball the way we did sometimes earlier. Plus, our defense is coming around. Our rebounding has been pretty good all along.” Few coaches place a higher value on the team concept route to winning in late season and postseason than Krzyzewski. It’s apparent he’s made quick, impressive progress in meshing the team without Irving into a different but still dangerous unit. “We’re getting better,” Krzyzewski said. “With this team, we’re more in a NovemberDecember mode than late-January. We’ve had to go in a different direction, but it’s coming around.”




East boys fall to Greyhounds BY MIKE LONDON

STATESVILLE — Trey Ledbetter continues to Statesville 63 see the good side E. Rowan 38 of bad. East Rowan’s first-year coach may still be kicking the tires after 15 losses in 16 games, but his psyche remains intact. “I’m not frustrated at all as a coach,” Ledbetter said Friday night, moments after the Mustangs were leveled 63-38 at Statesville. “The fight in our kids is tremendous. They’ve given 100 percent every game — and that’s all you can ask for. We don’t give up until the horn sounds.” It may as well have sounded after the first quarter. By then the NPC-leading Greyhounds had raced to a 12-2 lead and were on their way to their eighth straight conference victory. “They’re just so quick,” junior Cole Honeycutt said after East fell

to 1-7 in league play. “They’re definitely the quickest team we’ve played. In the first half they were skying for every rebound and didn’t score from anywhere but in the paint.” Honeycutt topped the Mustangs with a season-high 11 points and teammate Weston Rogers added 10. The game wasn’t a bonafide blowout until the middle of final period, when sophomore Josh Gaither made a three-point play to give Statesville (13-3, 8-0) a 58-35 lead. But that’s not what had winning coach Sonny Schofield wearing a post-game smile. “I was able to play everybody tonight,” he said while sorting laundry in the gymnasium basement. “I can’t remember the last time I was able to get all 13 in the game.” Nine of them got into the scoring column, led by Gaither’s 22 points. “Josh is very consistent, very level-headed,” Schofield said. “He doesn’t get frustrated at all.” Including when Statesville missed its first seven free throws.

NORTH BOYS FROM 8C he needed to do,” Andrew said. “North’s bigger than we are and they’re quicker than we are, and it’s hard for us to match up with them.” North controlled the first half. Albemarle managed just five field goals, and the Cavaliers got nine points from guard Sam Starks and a buzzer-beating 3-pointer by Jordan Kimber— he banked it — for a 28-18 lead. “I didn’t make that shot — that was the Lord,” Kimber said with a laugh. “That was just a very hard miss.” The Cavs needed those points when Albemarle’s Berwyn Bennett came alive in the third quarter. Bennett scored down low, swatted a shot by Hargave, then scored again. Suddenly, North’s lead was only 28-22. With five minutes left in the third quarter and with his team showing no sign of solving the 1-2-2, Mitchell instructed Givens to hold the ball. Seconds, then minutes, ticked away. “Coach is the man, and we’ll do what he says,” Starks said. “I was relaxed. If holding the ball is what we needed



East failed to capitalize, largely because it finished with only 15 baskets and didn’t score until Jared Hough hit a layup with two minutes remaining in the first quarter. “We’ve got to learn not to get flustered when our shots aren’t falling early,” said Ledbetter. “We end up digging ourselves a hole. When that happens it’s hard for us to climb out of it.” East trailed 36-19 at the half, then watched Statesville open the third period with a 7-0 scoring spree. “The pressure was the fast pace,” said Rogers. “And when they had open shots, they hit them.” The Mustangs later put together

to do, then we were glad to hold it.” North didn’t score again in the quarter, and Albemarle (9-3, 7-2) inched one point closer when 5-foot-7 freshman Gregory Childress made a free throw after Mitchell was called for a technical. Mitchell wasn’t livid with the refs, but he threw down a water bottle. With 5:40 left in the game, it was still 28-23 — a decent, two-possession scenario for Albemarle on the road — and Andrew had his team match up. Albemarle’s Terance Christian took a charge on a driving Givens. Then Bennett scored in the paint, and it was 28-25 with 3:35 remaining. Kimber missed two free throws with 1:38 left to play, and Childress swished a big-time shot — a rainbow 3 from the right wing — to tie it for the Bulldogs with 1:15 to go. With 51 seconds left, Kimber ended North’s 15-minute scoring drought with a pullup jumper for a 30-28 lead. “I had to make up for those missed free throws,” he said. When Childress missed a 17-foot jumper with 30 seconds to go, Hargrave ripped down a manly rebound. Givens missed the front end of a one-and-one with 23 seconds to go, and

an impressive run against Statesville’s second string when they scored 10 straight points and drew within 48-33 early in the fourth quarter. “We cut into it a little bit,” Ledbetter said. “But like I said, you spot ‘em so many points, it’s tough to come back.” The rally began with Jordan Shepherd’s 3-pointer from the top of the wheel and closed when Rogers angled into the lane for an unguarded layup. Honeycutt notched East’s final field goal — a short, pull-up jumper from the right side with 6:22 to play. Down the stretch the Mustangs took an oh-for from the field while converting three of five free throws. “We were right there, ready to close in,” Honeycutt said. “But I guess we lost it.” Schofield, for one, thinks the Mustangs are galloping in the right direction. “I’ll tell you the truth,” he said. “They ran their offense well. They got us that way at their place (in a 69-62 Statesville win Dec. 17). They’re patient on defense and play

two Hornet baskets were by Rivens and Weant and it was an indication of what was to come. “They did a real good job on the boards,” West Davidson coach Russ Snyder said. “Early on, it was obvious they were trying to get the ball inside to the big guys. They were getting second, third and fourth shots. They’re bigger than us. But that’s no excuse. You still have to get a body on them.” There were plenty of Hornet bodies around the ball all night long. McCain led a defensive charge that produced 11 steals. In fact, the Hornets held West Davidson (4-9, 0-4) scoreless from the field in the second quarter as the Green Dragons managed just four free throws. West had no one in double figures with three Green Dragons leading the way with six each. Every time they looked up, there was a Hornet in their face. “We did a good job of switching defenses and doing some different things,” Morgan said. “We did a good job communicating.” Salisbury guards finished this game off in the second quarter. Forrest Wilkins began a 20-4 run with two long 3s. Corey Murphy banked in a trey and B.J. Woods swished one from downtown. It was 33-10 at halftime. “They made some outside shots they didn’t make last time,” Snyder said. “We played well in the first game at home, but tonight was a different story.” A big reason for the offensive output was the level head of McCain, who directed the Hornets. “I’m used to it,” shrugged the junior. “I’ve been playing point guard since I was 10.” Morgan said he was the perfect stand-in for Knox.

First-place Bulldogs rip Cavs BY MIKE LONDON

SPENCER — With North Rowan down by 24 points, Albemarle 58 Taylor Sells was still N. Rowan 34 getting after it. Conducting a onegirl press in the backcourt, she slapped the ball out of the hands of an Albemarle reserve, then hustled to the handshake line as time expired. There wasn’t any quit in the North girls on Friday, but they were overmatched by Albemarle. The first-place Bulldogs beat the Cavaliers 58-34, handing North its ninth straight loss. “They were really big,” said North junior guard Tiffany Brown. “Just a whole lot bigger than us.” Albemarle (10-2, 9-0 YVC) is a very good 1A team, a three-headed monster that starts with skilled point guard Paige McConlogue and includes the post tandem of 6-foot freshman lefty Akela Branch — almost a clone of West Rowan’s Shay Steele — and senior Erin

Freeman. McConlogue had 21 points and 12 rebounds. Branch had 18 points and 13 rebounds, and Freeman produced another 13 boards. That’s a lot of rebounds, but North BROWN missed a lot of shots. “Still not finishing, still not making those layups,” North coach Tony Hillian said. “And tonight, we got beat on the boards as well.” North (4-13, 3-7) got off to a nice start. Sells and Jamie Miller knocked down early outside shots over Albemarle’s zone, and Brown hit three runners, one of them for a three-point play. “Coach said to be aggressive, to keep shooting,” said Brown, who had her third double-figure game of the season. North trailed just 16-11 after a quarter, but 1-for-13 shooting in the second quarter knocked the Cavs out of the game. Albemarle led 30-14 at halftime. “The snow has just wreaked havoc

“Tion’s kinda cool,” Morgan smiled. “He’s always at a calm level. That’s good to have in a basketball player.” It was 50-20 after three quarters and Morgan played plenty of his subs. It was an impressive display all the way around for Salisbury. “They’ve got two 6-7 guys, a slew of guards they bring off the bench, Rankin, Romar (Morris) ... they’ve got a lot of weapons.” Snyder said. They played to their strengths.” Which is something Salisbury didn’t do last week. “We had a little bit of a letdown and really wasn’t up for the game,” Morgan admitted. “Sometimes on the road, you can put yourself in a tough spot.

went nearly 11 minutes without making a basket. “I guess I made too many changes for them,” said SHS coach Todd Jones. “Things got too complicated for them. It was like we couldn’t do anything right.” With East guard Mallory Drew sidelined with an injury, Jones figured Statesville had a chance to prevail. “She put up like 12 points on us last time,” he said. “They just had some other girls step up.”

FROM 8C Mustangs a 13-7 lead — and the rout was on. “I told Karleigh she wasn’t going to be able to come back from an injury like that and be able to start clicking right away,” Porter said. “We’re trying to get her to drop-step and reverse pivot a little bit and shy away from that little fadeaway she like. She did much better tonight.” Fry swished a 3-pointer from the right corner that made it 21-10 late in the first half.

Moments later, with a 12-0 run in the books, the lead mushroomed to 36-14. “We made some good, smart passes that turned into great plays,” Honeycutt said. “You could tell we were working together.” Statesville wasn’t. The Greyhounds had 24 turnovers and made only nine field goals. In the second half they

She buried a long jumper, rejected a shot and scored on a coast-to-coast drive — all in a span of 15 seconds. North shot 6-for-41 (14.6 percent) in the second half t ruin any hopes of cutting into the Bulldogs’ lead. The Cavs host last-place Gray Stone tonight. “Gray Stone will be hungry,” Hillian said. “We’ve got to keep plugging.”

Brian Perry does some thinking as his Carson Cougars lose. Perry was once an assistant at West under Mike Gurley.

1 NPC) a game behind first place Statesville in the league. B.J. Sherrill scored 11 points and Keiro Cuthberson notched eight for West. “Keiro Cuthberson played really well tonight and Jarvis Morgan played with a lot of energy,” Gurley said. “A lot of people don’t know it, but Dominique Noble and B.J. Sherrill are huge for what we’re trying to do.” Keshun Sherrill converted a putback and Dominique Noble got two of his four points on a fast break layup to start the fourth and put West ahead 57-46. Sherill’s trey from the wing made it 60-48 shortly thereafter, and the lead never dipped below 10 after that. Noble’s point-blank basket while being fouled gave West its biggest lead at 70-52 with 2:46 remaining. “We needed to get a couple of stops together at the beginning of the fourth quarter and we didn’t do it,” Perry said. Carson (7-10, 4-4 NPC) shot 10 free

throws in the third, canning nine of them in attempt to make it a game. After scoring 23 in the first half, the Cougars matched that total in the third. “I knew they were going to make a run,” West coach Mike Gurley said. “It was a little frustrating because their run was coming without the clock moving because we put them on the foul line.” After leading 15-10 at the end of the first quarter, Connor Evans got his only points of the night on a 3-pointer and Kevin Turner had his only two on a shot in the paint, pushing the lead to 22-12. Travis Morgan, who finished with 10 points, threw down a thunderous dunk along the baseline dunk and Devin Parks ended a fast break with a layup to highlight a second-quarter spurt that put West ahead 30-18. Carson called timeout in effort to stop the bleeding, but Keshun Sherrill hit a running one-hander in the lane after the stoppage. “When he’s hitting, and that’s about every time we play them, he’s tough to stop,” Perry said of Sherrill.”You just hope he has an off night.”

West held a 35-23 lead at the break. After West went ahead 52-37 on two Sherrill free throws, Carson went on a 9-1 run in the final 2:51 of the third. After the third, West clamped down on defense and held Houston to just two points on a pair of free throws with less than two minutes to go. “We came out in the fourth quarter and made some hustle plays,” Gurley said. “We finally made adjustment in the fourth quarter. At that point we were just trying to keep the ball out of [Houston’s] hands.” Houston finished with 23 points to lead the Cougars. D.J. Love paced the rest of the Carson scorers with 15. “Nick is a great shooter,” Perry said. “We’ve been begging Nick to drive and attack the rim and he’s starting to do that a lot better at doing that.” CARSON (59) — Houston 23, Love 15, Higgins 8, Wagner 7, Gilbert 2, Eagle 2, Williams 2, Abbitt, Radar, Parker.

Hornets boys

Cavs win showdown BY MIKE LONDON

Salisbury looks good in all phases BY RONNIE GALLAGHER

Was it really just a week ago that lastplace West Davidson had Salisbury 64 first-place Salisbury on W. Davidson 33 the ropes before losing by just five points? No one would’ve believed it who witnessed Salisbury’s 64-33 pasting of the Green Dragons on Friday night in the Salisbury gym. The Hornets were motivated and energized for the second matchup. Tion McCain, subbing at point guard for John Knox, who was on a football recruiting trip, said Salisbury (12-4, 5-0) had something to prove after it eked out a 66-61 victory in Tyro.

“We had to come out and play like we know,” he said. The big men certainly did their part. Jarrett Rivens and Alex Weant, a couple of 6-foot-7 trees, dominated from the start. They combined for 24 points and 24 rebounds. “They did a lot better job WEANT rebounding tonight,” Salisbury coach Justin Morgan said. “They compete with each other to see who gets the most rebounds.” After several putbacks, Rivens had six boards in the first two minutes.

SPENCER — Cat-andmouse stall N. Rowan 34 ball ruled a Albemarle 28 matchup of YVC titans, but fans saw serious drama the last two minutes. North Rowan beat Albemarle 34-28 on Friday — seriously, 34-28 — to stay perfect in the league. North (143, 10-0) went scoreless in the third quarter, but it won its eighth straight game. “The goal was to find some way to get out of this gym with a win,” drained North coach Andrew Mitchell said. “I’m very proud of our guys. This is a speed game, and



they wanted to go, but they stayed disciplined. They did everything we asked, and they finished. I see progress from earlier when we were losing games like this.” The low score was the result of Albemarle’s tenacious 1-2-2 zone that held North big men Javon Hargrave and Malik Ford without a field goal. North couldn’t get the ball

STATESVILLE — East Rowan’s E. Rowan 51 girls basStatesville 28 k e t b a l l t e a m cleaned up its act and was rewarded with a deserving victory. The Mustangs, fresh off Wednesday’s mess of a game at Carson, were a different team in Friday’s 51-28 NPC win at Statesville. “When things aren’t going well, you’ve got to go back to basics,” East coach Danielle Porter said. “And for us that’s playing good defense and taking care of the ball.” The message was received loud-and-clear by the Mustangs (5-11, 3-5). They took better shots, trimmed their turnover total from 28 to 15 and fled the scene with a much-needed win. “Coming in we knew if we let this game slip by, we’d have to pay for it somehow,” sophomore Caroline Fry said. “I’m glad we FRY won.” They won because they riddled lastp l a c e Statesville (0-16, 0-8) with highpercentage shooting in the middle HONEYCUTT two quarters. Taylor Honeycutt drained a pair of 3-pointers and led the Mustangs with 12 points. And because senior Oliva Sabo inched closer to breaking out of her personal Alcatraz with a number of power drives to the basket. “Whe she does, other teams better watch out,” Porter said. Then there was freshman Karleigh Wike, who played with the savvy of an upperclassman in her second game since returning from an elbow injury. “The last time I went straight from the doctor to the game,” Wike said after netting eight points. “I hadn’t even practiced. This week we practiced a lot on defense. That was a key tonight.” It was Wike who helped East turn a tight game into an all-you-can-eat buffet. She opened the second quarter by sinking an eight-foot set shot from the left side. A minute later her putback gave the

Albemarle coach Al Andrew wasn’t interested in abandoning his effective defense, not as long as his team was within striking distance. So North held it, and Albemarle stayed back and watched for long stretches. North’s Pierre Givens squeezed the rock, while his teammates stood passively in a four-corners setup. “We did what we needed to do to try to win the ballgame, and Coach Mitchell did what

The West Davidson girls made a litSalisbury 79 tle progress W. Davidson 21 in their second game of 2011 against Salisbury on Friday night. They lost by 58, two points less than the beating the Green Dragons took last week. There was no doubt the score would be something like Friday’s 79-21 final. The big question is, how do the Hornets get up for a team they beat by 60 a week earlier. “The young ladies have two goals in mind,” Salisbury coach Chris McNeil said. “They want to go undefeated in the conference and they’re pushing real hard for another state championship.” West coach David Klinkoski certainly has respect for the Hornets (14-1, 5-0). “I know very well how good they are,” he said. “I know from the first time we played them.” West (1-11, 0-4) competed mightily but the young Green Dragons were simply overwhelmed. Jessica Heilig, Brielle Blaire and Olivia Rankin controlled the boards. Blaire finished with seven and Heilig six in abbreviated action. McNeil gave his second team, led by Najwa Allison, Doreen Richardson, Ebony Feamster, Ayana Hicks and Carrie Thompson, plenty of playing time. Those five combined for 20 points. “That whole unit works hard in practice,” McNeil said. “A lot of times, the things they do go unnoticed but they’re prepared for game situations at any time.” McNeil allowed his starters to play most of the first quarter and West Davidson was in a quick 23-2 hole. Blaire and Allison took over in the second quarter. Salisbury’s starters played sparingly in the third but it was a 20-6 burst that had West Davidson trailing 55-17 going into the fourth. Klinkoski did see some positives. “When we made better decisions and quit trying to throw the ball over the top, we got some passes off,” he said. “But they forced us into mistakes.” Heilig led the Hornets with 18 points, while Blaire and Ashia Holmes each scored 12. Ayanna Holmes produced some spectacular assists.

MOUNT ULLA — Chloe Monroe Carson 50 k e p t W. Rowan 42 s h o o t i n g and her team kept building its lead. It was no coincidence as Carson took over with a standout third quarter where Monroe drained four 3-pointers as beating rival West Rowan didn’t lose its luster for the Cougars in a 50-42 win on Friday night. Monroe finished with a game-high 23 points, 19 of which came in the second half. “I don’t know,” said Monroe quite meekly. “I just finally started hitting some stuff and I think once you hit one, you get some momentum.” Carson (13-4, 7-1 NPC) stayed a game behind North
