Wreck snarls I-85 traffic

Two big lottery winners Salisbury woman claims $1 million from scratch-off; Kannapolis man gets $500,000


Highway Patrol officials said drowsy driving could be to blame for a wreck that sent two Woodleaf men to the hospital and held up southbound travel on Interstate 85 about 4 p.m. Thursday. Trooper D.H. Deal said Ramon Hernandez, 29, was driving a Ford Explorer northbound when he hit the median cables, went airborne and overturned several times be-

While this is by far the biggest prize she’s won, it’s not the first. “I have good luck on this ticket,” Martinez said in the press release. “I’ve won $1,000 three times before this.” Martinez didn’t offer any plans for her winnings. The Education Lottery press release did not provide contact information for Martinez, and a listing for her could not be found Thursday. Lanny Nunn, a retired Time Warner Cable employee who lives in Kannapolis, claimed his $500,000 prize Wednesday. Nunn decided to buy a ticket at a North Cannon Boulevard Food Lion while he was waiting for a friend to buy cat food. He scratched off the

ripple effect of Democrats gathering in Charlotte BY KARISSA MINN

Local tourism officials say the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte likely will bring plenty of visitors — and their wallets — to Rowan County. The Salisbury Rowan County Joint Tourism Marketing Committee, a partnership between the Salisbury and Rowan tourism development authorities, discussed the political convention at Thursday’s meeting . Before the meeting, Executive Director James Meacham said, “I heard a quote I liked about this. ‘To us, tourism dollars aren’t red or blue — they’re green.’ ”

Dorothy K. McCarter Doris M. Basham June M. Barringer Zakiyah N. Toomer


The event’s location was announced Tuesday, but Meacham said it’s been known for a while that Charlotte was a contender. He said three Rowan County hotels chose to participate in the bid process for the convention in May 2010. Now, Hampton Inn, Comfort Suites and Holiday Inn are all listed in the convention’s reservation system. “We’re talking about an average of 14,000 room nights over five separate nights the weekend of Labor Day in 2012,” Meacham said. “NASCAR may bring 7,000 room nights. This is double that.”

Slain Hickory girl’s stepmother had winding trail of marriages GAFFNEY, S.C. (AP) — The stepmother of the North Carolina girl whose dismembered remains were found in the western part of the state was married seven times, and she was wed to more than one man on several occasions, according to an Associated Press investigation. Elisa Baker was indicted last month on a bigamy charge involving her marriage to Zahra Baker’s father, Adam, and another man, but AP found documents at half a dozen county courthouses that showed at one point she was married to three men at the same time, calling into question the single charge. The question of bigamy is unrelated to Zahra’s case. No one has been charged in her death, although Elisa Baker is jailed on charges of obstructing the investigation into her stepdaughter’s disappearance. Zahra’s parents reported her miss-

ing Oct. 9, and her remains were found several miles apart a few weeks later. A glimpse into Elisa Baker’s personal life and her ability to stay ahead of a porous marriage-licensing system help explain how a woman burning through relationships in the Appalachian foothills eventually came to meet Adam Baker, who lived halfway around the world in Australia. Elisa Baker’s marriage trail starts in Gaffney, the seat of Cherokee County, about 60 miles south of where she sits in jail. In Gaffney, she married four different men between 1987 and 1998, according to marriage licenses. It’s not clear why she chose Gaffney, since both North and South Carolina are like most states when it comes to requirements for two adults planning to get married: no blood tests, no background checks,

no health records. “When they complete an application for a marriage license, they understand they’re signing it under oath,” said Cherokee County Probate Judge Joshua Queen, and people can face legal penalties if they lie. But essentially, he said, couples are on the honor system. Marriage licenses are maintained more for ELISA BAKER record keeping purposes than as safeguards against lawbreaking. “No one does a background check,” said Suzanne Reynolds, executive associate dean at Wake Forest University School of Law. “The trend throughout the whole country is toward fewer marriage require-

ments rather than more.” Elisa Baker’s earliest two marriages seem to have been valid, although the first, which occurred when she was a minor, was quickly annulled at the request of the teenage groom’s father. It was her third marriage, to Andrew Harris Jr., that raises questions. She was divorced from him on Dec. 14, 1995 — 10 months after she wed Darrell Putnam, getting her marriage license in Gaffney. That likely means her marriage to Putnam was invalid, according to University of North Carolina School of Law professor Maxine Eichner. “If you’re in a valid marriage and you get married again, and the first marriage hasn’t been dissolved by either divorce or by being annulled, then the second marriage has no effect,” Eichner said. Putnam eventually had the mar-

riage annulled in 1999. By then, Elisa had married again — twice. Husband number five was Jeffrey Allred, who married Elisa on Oct. 3, 1997. Allred told the Associated Press he walked out in the spring of 1998, and never got a divorce. “She messed me up bad. To this day I won’t get married. Never,” he said. The AP wasn’t able to find any record of a divorce, and court clerks who checked statewide databases couldn’t find any divorce filings involving the pair in North Carolina. After Allred, Elisa wed again, marrying Aaron Young on Aug. 8, 1998, again getting a license in Gaffney. She had married three men in three years — and was not legally divorced from any of them. That likely means her unions with both Young and Adam Baker are invalid.


to be treated for serious injuries. No other vehicles were involved in the accident, but Deal said a tractor-trailer got stuck in the median and two trucks had to be towed after ending up on the right shoulder. He said those vehicles swerved to avoid hitting the Explorer. It took officials about an hour to clear the scene, which included removing debris from the roadway. Deal said numerous bystanders stopped to lend a hand. “They were a really big help to the victims and helped us try to get the roadway clear,” he said. “We really appreciate them stopping and trying to help in some way.”

Defeated Democrats sue over campaign ads FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — Three of the Democrats turned out of the North Carolina state Senate last year are suing their opponents and the Republican Party over a claim that a GOP committee paid for campaign advertising that was credited to individual candidates. Former senators Margaret Dickson of Fayetteville, Joe Sam Queen of Waynesville and Don Davis


of Greenville filed suit last week, according to The Fayetteville Observer. The three claim that their races were among 10 Senate contests around the state in which ads were bought by a group called the North Carolina Republican Executive Committee, but that disclaimers appeared in the commercials attributing them to individual candidates. That would be a violation of a state law.

He said he expects hotels to be running close to 100 percent occupancy during that time, even with decreased business traffic over the holiday weekend. As hotels closer to Charlotte fill up, visitors will start to book rooms in Salisbury. Krista Osterweil, general manager of Hampton Inn, said the Democratic National Committee asked for 85 percent of hotel inventory for five days, and Hampton Inn committed to that.

No price was quoted by Thursday’s meeting, but the committee authorized the group sponsorship subcommittee to work within its budget. The committee also approved the allocation of up to $5,000 for the development of two Facebook applications by a web design company called Aristotle. They would allow the continued development of sweepstakes promotions like the one held over the holidays. Included in Aristotle’s services is a web page and Facebook tab called “Local Flavor” that would offer coupons for local businesses. Tourism money is spent on visitors because it comes from visitors, Meacham said, but this would provide something for local residents for a small amount of money.

She said the visitors can be shown that Rowan County and Salisbury are great places to stay and spend time. Also at Thursday’s meeting, the committee approved the development of an online platform that would allow individuals to register for events at the website. The Salisbury Parks and Recreation Department made an in-kind request to the committee for funding to develop a platform for sporting events. The first event to be promoted is the 10k Run in April 2011. Wilson said she wondered if the website could offer registration services for all tick-

Schools suggest students stay home as sickness spreads B Y S ARAH C AMPBELL

School officials are urging parents to keep their children at home if they are experiencing flu-like symptoms such as fever, runny nose, sore throat, chills or body aches. Woodleaf Elementary and Southeast Middle have seen surges in absenteeism due to illness. At least 60 students missed school every day last week at Woodleaf. “We’ve been involved in this epidemic for the past two weeks,” Woodleaf Principal Sue Herring-

ton said. Martha Cline, who tracks student attendance at the school, said this week started with 73 students out Monday. Nearly 60 students were absent Thursday. She said the average daily rate of absenteeism is between 15 and 20 students for the 448-member student body. “The numbers are running quite high,” she said. “Most of this is due to a lot of stomach virus, strep throat and flu symptoms.” Traci Collins, school nurse at Woodleaf, Cleveland and Mount Ulla elementary schools, said several schools have sent out an auto-

Catawba College discusses political unrest in Egypt B Y S USAN S HINN Catawba College News Service

Students at Catawba College may not fully understand the protests occurring in Egypt, but they’ll be much more aware of the situation should their wallets be affected. This was the consensus of a forum, “Insights into Egypt,” whose members Wednesday night discussed the impact of the protests in Cairo. The event was sponsored by Catawba’s Department of History and Politics and included Dr. Michael Bitzer, an associate professor and department chair; Dr. Sanford Silverburg, a political science professor who is an internationally recognized expert on the Middle East; Dr. Gary Freeze, a history professor; and Freeze’s son Matt, who spent six months at American University in Cairo. The impromptu forum, Bitzer said, was organized late Tuesday afternoon at the request of students who wanted to learn more about the developing story in the Middle East. “It was Foreigners very much a last-minute thing,” affected by Bitzer said. “We sent out a mass esituation in mail and put up flyers. It made perEgypt, 11A fect sense for the department to do it.” More than three dozen students attended the 9 p.m. forum to listen to the panel’s remarks and ask questions.

Tables show ‘Sweet Life in Historic Salisbury’

The Salisbury Police Department is working on leads they’ve received since Tuesday’s bank robbery, and the photo of the robber, they say, is going to be their golden ticket. “I do think it will help us significantly,” Salisbury Police Chief Rory Collins said. While police are following up with folks, G4S, the security company that employs Bank of America security guard Woodrow Clark, is conducting its own internal investigation into the incident after Clark fired two shots at the robber, hitting a window of SunTrust Bank across the street. “Obviously we would have Surveillance footage had a much heavier hand in of robbery suspect. that had they (bullets) struck someone,” Collins said. Collins said Clark was not the regular guard who worked at Bank of America. Salisbury Police officers are trained to only shoot when there is a real imminent threat. “If that guy was simply fleeing from the scene, that causes concern,” Collins said of the guard choosing to fire shots. From what Collins understood, the robber came out of the bank and took off down Innes Street, running. “His interaction was nothing but a fleeing suspect,” Collins said. Witnesses at the bank Tuesday said the robber was crouched down when he was leaving, no gun in sight. Collins said that although there has been a rash of robberies involving handguns, there is no threat to the residents of Salisbury. “I don’t think there is any reason for our community to be in fear,” he said. If anyone can identify the person in the photo, or, if anyone has any information, call Salisbury-Rowan Crimestoppers, 1-866-639-5245, or, the Salisbury Police Department, 704-638-5333.

he Salisbury Depot was all abuzz Thursday night as people filled the room for a preview of the annual Table Tops event. The Historic Salisbury Foundation’s annual fundraiser started with wine and appetizer preview party. The event features 17 table tops, each designed by different local residents. They are unique, yet follow the theme, “The Sweet Life in Historic Salisbury.” “People look at this event as a chance for them to come and show their creativity, to do something whimsical, and some people obviously really get into it,” said HSF’s Christine Wilson. Nancy Clement’s table, named, “Channeling Tony Duquette,” is covered with a 19th century English paisley table cloth topped with blue and white vases, several oriental features and a beautiful gold screen. A group of monkeys gives it a bit of an island feel. The chairs are covered with a sheer gold seat cover and are adorned with bright colored pillows and throws. Duquette was a designer from the 1930s

The table setting features martini glasses filled with pink, red and white M&M’s, Hershey Kisses circle the table, while each plate is donned with one giant chocolate kiss. The centerpiece, an over sized martini glass is filled to the top with foil covered chocolate hearts. “I like this one the best,” Charles Lane, property manager for HSF said looking over at the table full of chocolates. Chad Morgan and Hilda Morgan outdid themselves at the event this year. Their table called “Royal WeddingA Highgrove Garden Tea” started out as more of a formal royal wedding theme but turned into a garden theme as the table came together. Chad Morgan said this is the eighth or ninth year he has done a table for the event and also takes the blame for the “height rivalry” that occurs at the event.

That goes for everything from gas to Egyptian cotton towels, he continued. Responding to a question from a student, Silverburg said he doubted that American troops would be sent to Cairo, given the U.S. presence in other parts of the region. Matt Freeze said that the protesters would welcome the presence of the Egyptian Army, which is seen as safer than the highly militarized police force. As of Thursday, the army had positioned itself between pro-government and anti-government protesters after violence erupted Wednesday night. There may not be a rational explanation for the protests that have erupted throughout the region, Silverburg said, citing an economic despair that has led to the need for public violence. Another factor may be that the infrastructure in Cairo has not kept up with the population, as well as the fact that people cannot find jobs, Dr. Freeze added. Silverburg said he expected President Hosni Mubarak to leave office soon, with a new parliament in place by September, when elections will be held. The main issue in Cairo, Matt Freeze said, is that there are many disparate groups with no voice. In this country, however, that’s not an issue. “We have ways of getting our voices out.” Silverburg noted that the three power centers of Islam are Cairo, Baghdad and Damascus. “The Syrians right now are thrilled beyond belief,” he said. “They don’t like Mubarak.” He said that the Syrians would be assuming power lost by the Egyptians, and this would also be an area to watch. Matt Freeze said that there is a yearning for democracy among Egyptians. “They want anything but Mubarak. They’re almost willing to try anything.” Senior Zach Parisian of Fayetteville came to the forum to learn about the newest developments in the Middle East. He said he listens to National Public Radio whenever he’s in his car. A history major, Parisian said he’s not hearing the conflict discussed at all among students. That could change, Bitzer said. “When gas hits $5 a gallon you will be intensely aware of what’s going on in the Middle East,” he said after the forum. If the Suez Canal closes, resulting in shipping delays, prices for all sorts of goods will rise. “It’s still the same demand but a lower supply,” he said.

of a different style of government, Silverburg said. He described the Egyptian economy as “terribly sluggish,” with an inequitable distribution of wealth that’s placed most of the population in despair. Panel members were quick to note that this is a secular protest, not an Islamic protest. There has been an attempt, Dr. Gary Freeze said, for our country to want to “Americanize the world.” But while Egypt has some Western values, it is also deeply infused with Islamic values. “Democracy is not necessarily part of that trend,” he said. “You are seeing different ideas not just clashing, but blending.” Matt Freeze spoke of many of the protesters as disenfranchised, educated youth. There are engineers, lawyers and physicians with no jobs and no prospects, he said. Through Facebook, a massive movement has been mounted, he said. “I’ve seen the protests and they’re as scary as they look.” “The thing that has astonished and fascinated me about this whole process is the technological aspect of it,” Bitzer said. The Egyptian government has shut down Internet, Wi-Fi and cell phone access, amid calls for this “fundamental freedom” to be restored, he said. “There is the Western idea of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Where does Internet access come in?” No doubt, most Americans would say it’s in there somewhere. Bitzer continued, “The role of technological capabilities is fundamentally reshaping what we as political scientists understand about revolutionary activities.” So what does all this mean for Catawba students, the panel asked? “The question is what is the impact on the pocketbook?” Freeze said. “What will happen to oil production and what will happen to gas prices? What you have is an unknown.” Freeze called Cairo a touchstone of the Middle East, and said that such unrest could spread throughout the region, even into the rest of Africa. There are two things that students should understand, he said. “It may impact your pocketbook, and many of these protesters are just like you. “The people I met in Cairo are amazing people that you’d welcome to Catawba to be part of your community.” Silverburg noted that students often have a lackadaisical attitude about the Middle East — until the transport of oil and goods is interrupted. “Then, all of a sudden, you’re going to be concerned,” he said.

Free Ask-A-Lawyer day Saturday Local residents with legal questions can get answers this weekend, free of charge. The Rowan County Bar Association will host “Ask-ALawyer” day Saturday in the F&M Trolley Barn, 125 E. Liberty St., from 1 to 4 p.m. “Ask-A-Lawyer” is a statewide initiative promoted by the N.C. Bar Association in which local lawyers volunteer their time to speak

with people one-on-one. Several counties are participating in the initiative, and neighboring judicial districts will be hosting their own events. “This is not about building a client base,” said Andy Abramson, president of the Rowan County Bar Association. “The hope is that people who would not ordinarily be able to obtain legal consultation would be provided with advice free of charge.” The general public is invit-

ed to attend the event and is encouraged to bring questions pertaining to all areas of law. “If we’re unable to answer people’s questions, then at the very minimum we’re hoping to point them in the right direction,” Abramson said. At least 15 lawyers will be on hand, and each person who attends is expected to get between 15 and 30 minutes of consultation. For more information, contact Abramson at 704-6335000.

CrimeRoundup Traffic stop nets drug charge A Wednesday morning traffic stop on Long Street yielded a felony drug charge for a Salisbury man. According to Salisbury Police, Officer A.L. Bouk found that the driver of a Chevrolet Monte Carlo driving on Bringle Ferry Road did not have a drivalid ver’s liHERNDON cense. The driver, Antoine Herndon, did not have a license, and was cited. Further investigation found DIRTON that the backseat passenger, Maurice Dirton Jr., of Salisbury, had marijuana on him, but Bouk still smelled a strong odor coming from the inside of the car, police said. Bouk was able to find a plastic container holding nine individually packaged bags of marijuana. Dirton was charged with simple possession, cited and released. Herndon was charged

SPANGLER D a v i d Lewis Spangler Jr., 36, was arrested without incident when officers with the China Grove Police Department went to a home at 210 Centerview St. on a tip from the U.S. Marshal’s Service that Spangler may be staying at the residence.

Copper downspouts reported stolen The Salisbury Police Department is investigating several copper downspout thefts on Confederate Av“We want them here every day, but we want them here healthy,” he said. “We can’t continue to expose and re-expose children. “I wish I had a bag of pixie dust I would sprinkle it over the school to make everyone healthy.” Both Woodleaf and Southeast have reported confirmed cases of the flu. Rita Foil, the Rowan-Salisbury School System public information officer, said although not all schools have experienced high absenteeism, the district has been working to educate

enue in Salisbury, and one on North Fulton Street. One Confederate Avenue resident reported the latches on a gate in his back yard were broken. He suspects someone was trying to get to his copper downspouts, as well. Some time has passed since the last report of copper gutters and downspouts being taken, and police said the recent incidents are due to the increasing price of copper. Other reports across the county: • Latino’s Body Shop and Auto Repair at 5910 S. Main St. reported someone broke into the business taking $2,300 worth of items. Things taken included amplifiers, a tool box, catalytic converter, laptop computer, battery jump box, two electric drills, a car stereo and four 18-inch rims.

TABLES FRoM 3A The Morgans’ table is decorated with blue, white and gold Wedgewood china and fresh flowers. “I wanted the flowers to look like they are growing in the pots,” Chad said. The gold chairs add a touch more pizazz. The side tables are covered with books depicting many different royal weddings. Kari Hippert, designer of the “Sugar Plum Forest” table is a first-timer to the event and judging by the comments people were making, her table is a big success. With many different shades of browns and greens, the tables pine cones and ferns make it seem as though you are in the forest. The silverware, which was itself decorated, was tied together with a fern and a butterfly tie. Passersby could not stop talking about the crystal on the table, a set with five different style glasses. People were shocked when Hippert told them she bought them at a local auction. The self proclaimed auction junkie said she bought the majority of the items on the table at auctions in Rowan County. “Mother Goose and Friends” by Jim Beaudoin

A variety of dogs adorn the table top from Faithful Friends.

“People look at this event as a chance for them to come and show their creativity, to do something whimsical, and some people obviously really get into it.” CHRISTINE WILSON Historic Salisbury Foundation

is a nostalgic mix of antique dolls and nursery rhyme pages. Among the familiar faces are Raggedy Ann and Andy, Holly Hobbie and Pinocchio as well as Hansel and Gretel. The place settings are all different antique children’s plates and bowls. The silverware and the cups are also vintage children’s table ware.

The Waterworks Visual Arts Center’s table called, “Evening in Monet’s Garden” was designed by Irene Beyer. The purple tablecloth matches the colors in the Monet painting that is the tables centerpiece. The table is also adorned with beautiful flowers, like Monet himself planted in his own garden.

Katherine Murdoch decided to decorate her table in honor of all the faithful furry friends who have passed through her Salisbury neighborhood and have now gone on to the pet after world. Several black and white photos show friends and family with their dogs and cats. Murdoch’s best friend Alex is shown in one photo, dressed in her wedding dress with her dearly departed dog beside her. The photos span many decades and include one of her great-grandfather and his dog while another shows her brother, when he was young, sitting in front of the Hall House with a large German shepherd. In addition to the photos, there are many other dog trinkets, from a large wooden dog atop the table, to tiny little glass dogs and cats. The plates are wrapped with strands of white pearls under them and the chairs are a yellow plaid with floral fronts. “This is my favorite so far,” Caroline Payler said about Murdoch’s table. The event continues today with an “out of the box” lunch catered by The Sweetest Thing. The event will also be open to the public on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Depot. A $5 donation is suggested.

Below are monthly activities to consider DARRELL for the upcoming BLACKWELDER spring gardening season.

Dear Amy: Is anyone in the world besides me offended by the trend of pregnant women wearing clothes stretched tightly across their huge bellies? I know many people (mostly pregnant women, I assume) think pregnancy is beautiful (as if it’s something new) and

should be paraded in front of the whole world. To me, this is no different than an obese woman wearing tight-fitting clothes. Good taste never goes out of style, but if this type of dress is tasteful, then I’ll just have to lay down on the railroad tracks and end it all! — LD Dear LD: Your concern about this — and your willingness to lay down on a railroad track if someone doesn’t agree with you — gives new meaning to the phrase “fashion victim.” ack when I was last pregnant, when covered wagons crisscrossed the prairie, some of us pregnant women wore voluminous tents capable of housing the entire cast of “The King and I,” not because we were embarrassed, but because Lycra hadn’t been invented. I don’t find these body-hugging styles distasteful at all and can only marvel at the fabrics that can stretch all the way around a woman who is “great with child.” Pregnancy is not new; nor is pregnancy a condition that a woman should have to disguise. But, as you say, this style of dress is a matter of taste.

marital living situations. My marriage has been conducted in separate homes, a few blocks apart, for 23 of what will be 40 years of marriage this year. It has worked exceptionally well. My husband and I have very different “time clocks” and need separate time and space. The “one size fits all” concept works no better in marriage than in anything else; and now that women are increasingly functional outside as well as inside the home, they are less apt to accept the strictures of traditional marriage. Hooray! Not all change is good, but this one is long overdue. — Anne from Denver Dear Anne: I’ve received many responses to this question. I find these unusual living situations fascinating and will run more responses in future columns.

You can choose between two muscadine plants at sale owan County 4-H is offering two types of muscadines through the annual spring plant sale. The two types available are Cowart and Triumph. Cowart produces large fruit that is black in color. The fruit is in large clusters SARA with very good flavor DRAKE and fruit quality. The vines are selfpollinating, disease resistant, vigorous and productive. The fruit ripens early to mid-season and is good


for eating, making juice, jelly and wine. Triumph muscadines produce large fruit with a thin, greenish-bronze skin. This plant is winter hardy and productive with high sugar content. The fruit ripens early to mid-season and is good for eating and making wine. Muscadine plants are two years old and come in 1-gallon containers. Cowart and Triumph muscadines are well adapted to the Piedmont growing conditions. The cost for muscadines is $9 each or $8 each if five or more are ordered. You should avoid shaded areas when planting muscadines. Muscadines require full sun and a well-

drained soil with a pH around 6.5. Plant 10 to 20 feet apart after the threat of frost is past in spring. Trellising can be as simple as a single wire positioned 5 to 6 feet above ground, or you can choose a more elaborate and decorative format. Also available for purchase are raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and figs. All plants are in one gallon containers and cost $9 each or $8 each if five or more of the same variety are ordered. Whether you order muscadines, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or figs, you will enjoy the sweet yields for many years to come.

When you receive your order, you will also receive a brochure for further information on caring for your plants. To order plants, please call the Rowan County Cooperative Extension office at 704-216-8970 weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The deadline to place your order is Feb. 23. Not only will these plants beautify your landscape, your purchase helps support the Rowan County 4-H program and the youth who are striving to make the best better.

Laundry room may need more air due to gas appliances BY DWIGHT BARNETT Scripps Howard News Service

Q: I have a question about a house I’m selling. The home was inspected, and the report asked that I increase the air supply to the laundry room, where the furnace and water heater also are located. This is a newer home built in 2008. Is this a reasonable request, and if so, why? The inspector my real-estate agent hired did not find any problems when I purchased the home. A: If your home has an electric furnace and water heater, I cannot think of a logical reason to add additional air. If, on the other hand, the home has a gas-fired furnace and water heater or any gas-fired appliance, the room may very well need “makeup” air to replace the air that is consumed during the combustion cycle of

the appliances. I would expect to find a high-efficiency furnace in a 2008 house. The new high-efficiency furnaces are a closed combustion system that brings in fresh outside air through a PVC pipe and exhausts the combustion gases through a second, or sometimes integral, PVC exhaust pipe. With all the larger white PVC pipes, it’s easy to identify a 90 percent efficient furnace. A gas-fired water heater can be high-efficiency as well, but in most homes you will find a common water heater with a metal flue pipe to exhaust flue gases. With a clothes dryer in the same confined space, there is the possibility that most of the air in the room could be expelled when all the appliances are operating at the same time.

When this happens, the only fresh-air opening in the room is the flue on the water heater, and the negative pressures in the room will pull air and flue gases backward through the water heater flue. When that happens, carbon monoxide, a tasteless, odorless, poisonous gas, can build up in the laundry room. A simple solution would be to add a louvered door to the laundry room or add grills on the walls between the living space and the laundry room. A rule of thumb for air use: Eleven cubic feet of air are required per hour for each thousand BTUs listed on the appliance’s label. As an example, a typical 40,000 BTU rated water heater, operating by itself without the clothes dryer or a furnace, will need approximately 440 cubic feet of combustion air (11 times 40 equals

440). A small laundry room contains approximately 384 cubic feet of air (6 times 8 times 8 equals 384), so you can see why the inspector asked for the air supply to be increased. I’m not so sure you had a thorough inspection when you purchased the home. A home inspector hired by a real-estate agent is actually working for the agent, so the inspector sometimes tends to have a “lazy eye” when it comes to finding problems.

tain to you, then you go to the mountain. If you can get a nice design around your present toilet location, this allows you to spend more money on your finish work and fixtures, where it really counts. However, I understand that there may be some cases where the toilet will have to be moved. For instance, if my wife tells me she wants the toilet moved. For that, if you’re not a plumber, you should call a professional plumber. Whenever you deal with a main toilet line and vent stack, you’re talking hard-core plumbing, and a licensed master plumber is the right person for this job. Things like proper drain pitch, cutting and drilling around wood supports, then reconnecting everything back to the main stack need to be completed according to local codes. Believe it or not, that loops us all the way back to the top-


Q: I’m going to remodel our master bathroom in the near future, and wanted to check in with a few questions before we do anything drastic. I’d like to move the toilet from one side of the bathroom to the other. This would also move the toilet about 8 feet away from the main plumbing vent stack. Is this toilet move even possible? If so, can I do the move myself, or is this one for the pros? What about pitch and cutting through floor joists? Thank you very much for any help! — Dave in Ohio A: Before we get into the meat and potatoes of all your questions, let’s start things out with one of the most important topics of remodeling that many homeowners overlook. And that’s pulling the proper building permits for the job. In most areas, outside of painting and wall papering,

you’ll need to meet with your local building inspector to discuss what permits may be needed before you start work. Keep in mind that construction inspections can protect homeowners from poor work or mistakes that may have been overlooked. So, having a professional inspector checking your job from start to finish is well worth the fee for permits. Bottom line: Don’t cut corners by cutting out the required permits. Now, let’s get to all your questions: Yes, moving the location of a toilet is usually possible, but is it practical? What I mean by that is when you move large 3- or 4-inch drain lines even a few feet, the cost can really bite into the entire budget of the job. My advice when it comes to moving the location of a toilet is to take a good look and see if you can design your new bathroom around the toilet’s present location. Basically, if you can’t bring the moun-

self what you would want someone to do if she were in your shoes. I, personally, would want to know — and if you agree, then you should tell. You merely say, “I don’t know you and ‘Rob’ well but I want you to know that I saw him buying Gerber daisies and sharing an ice cream cone with a woman yesterday.” This wife might say she and her husband are separated. She may tell you to mind your own business. And all you have to say is, “I realize this is not my business, and it’s hard to tell you, but if my husband was seen with someone else I would want to know. I’m really sorry.” After this statement, your involvement in this saga is over. If this qualifies as “tattling,” then plead guilty as charged and be confident that you’ve acted on your own conscience — not based on your husband’s “guy code.”


Dear Amy: I recently saw a friend of my husband’s out with another woman. The friend knew I had seen him with this woman and we passed each other without him stopping to acknowledge me or introduce me. I did not say anything to him, either. I know his wife and their kids, but I don’t know them well. ASK They are my AMY husband’s friends and I don’t talk to or see them very often. I feel that if I do nothing I am condoning his affair. If I go out of my way to contact the wife I’m afraid I will get in big trouble with my husband and his friends for “tattling.” What would you do in a case like this? — Stella Dear Stella: You don’t say what this man and the other woman were doing when you saw them, but let’s imagine that you caught them in one of those movie romance montages: laughing, sharing an ice cream cone and stopping to buy flowers at a street-side flower stand. Then you have to ask your-

Robertson invests wisely hile the local community is familiar with the Salisbury-based Blanche and Julian Robertson Family Foundation and the millions it has provided to benefit local organizations and individuals, fewer were probably aware until this week that it is only one aspect of the philanthropic endeavors supported by Julian Robertson Jr. and his family. The New York-based Robertson Foundation, which recently pledged $25 million to the Teach for America program, predates the local endeavor by about a year and has a national and international reach. Hedgefund manager Robertson, his late wife, Josie, and other family members launched the Robertson Foundation in 1996. With about $1 billion in assets currently, it obviously operates on a much larger stage than the local foundation, but both reflect the goal of making “transformative” gifts — donations that help bring about lasting improvements in people’s lives. That’s certainly an apt description for Robertson’s gift to Teach for America, which will enjoy the leveraged benefit of three other philanthropists who joined to create a $100 million endowment. While education is a prominent focus for the Robertson Foundation, it also looks for transformative opportunities in these areas: • Medical research: Its projects here include cancer research at leading academic medical institutions in the New York area, such as Rockefeller University, Cancer Research Institute and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. • Environment: Its work has recently focused on climate change and decreasing greenhouse gases, as well as promoting marine conservation. • Religion and spirituality: The foundation describes its work in this area as “committed to reinvigorating religious life in the United States and connecting people with a community of faith.” Along with the two foundations that bear the Robertson family name, there’s yet a third — the Tiger Foundation, which Robertson and employees of his Tiger Management firm launched in 1990. Still going strong today with the support of money managers who benefited from Robertson’s mentoring, it concentrates on aiding needy families in New York City. During his recent visit to Salisbury, Julian Robertson Jr. reflected on his interest in philanthropy. While saying it was sometimes difficult to pick recipients because “you run into so many worthy projects,” he had high praise for the foundation board members and staff who research potential recipients and make the final choices about where contributions go. He’s clearly confident that whether the funds are going to a nonprofit in Salisbury, a researcher in a high-tech medical lab or fledgling teachers determined to inspire students in some of the nation’s most impoverished areas, it’s an investment in the future and money well spent.

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

Believe those who are seeking the truth, … doubt those who find it. — Andre Gide

Toppled by tweets, not tanks Battle for liberty uses different weapons, but it’s still a battle hen Egypt’s leaders shut down virtually all Internet and cellphone service, they exposed a basic truth about the modern world. New forms of communication not controlled by governments can — potentially — shake the foundations of autocratic rule. “President Hosni Mubarak betrayed his own fear,” writes Scott Shane in the STEVE AND New York COKIE ROBERTS Times, “that Facebook, Twitter, laptops and smartphones could empower his opponents, expose his weaknesses to the world and topple his regime.” There is nothing new about popular uprisings deposing despised dictators. Russian revolutionaries dumped Czar Nicholas II almost a century before Twitter was invented. What is different today is how quickly the rebellious spirit can spread — from laptop to laptop, cell phone to cell phone. “Revolutions no longer take months. They take weeks,” says Alec Ross, who advises Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on technology issues. “You can go from zero to 60 like that.” So, yes, these are heady days for anyone who cares about democracy and human rights. Mubarak is not the only dictator consumed by fear. But a certain amount of caution and skepticism is also necessary. Facebook does not guarantee freedom. Communication systems are value neutral. The bad guys can use them, as well as the good guys. The battle to expand liberty is not over; it has just moved to a different field, and is being fought with different weapons. As the Times reports, “In Minsk and Moscow, Tehran and Beijing, governments have begun to climb the steep learning curve and turn the new Internet tools to their own, antidemocratic purpos-


es.” Exhibit A: Iran. The same technologies that were used to foment the “Green Revolution” 18 months ago have now been deployed against the dissidents. “The Iranian police eagerly followed the electronic trails left by activists, which assisted them in making thousands of arrests in the crackdown that followed” the street demonstrations of June 2009, writes the Times. “The government even crowd-sourced its hunt for enemies, posting on the Web photos of unidentified demonstrators and inviting Iranians to identify them.” China has been even more proactive, squelching social networks before they can incubate cells of unrest. Last year, Google protested that Beijing-backed hackers had invaded its Gmail system, looking for damaging information on Chinese dissidents. Clinton has warned that because so many autocratic regimes are blocking online traffic, “a new information curtain is descending across much of the world.” Moreover, the same technology used to mobilize protestors in Tunis and Cairo can be used to bolster terrorist networks in Kabul and Baghdad. Eben Kaplan’s sobering study for the Council on For-

eign Relations reports that “the Internet is a powerful tool for terrorists, who use online message boards and chat rooms to share information, coordinate attacks, spread propaganda, raise funds and recruit.” He quotes John Arquilla, a professor at the Naval Postgraduate School, who says that terrorists “swim in an ocean of bits and bytes.” Still, the courage and ingenuity of young pro-democracy activists is truly inspiring. Tweets are their tanks, messages their mortars, and while they sometimes seem outgunned, Alec Ross is right when he says, “From now on, any and all dissent movements will have technology as a core component.” The reason is that technology can create an alternative universe, a different way of seeing your world — and yourself. Tweets don’t just spread information; they spur the imagination. And revolutions start with an act of imagination, a moment when a different future suddenly seems possible. It doesn’t take 140 characters to say, “The emperor has no clothes!” Zeynep Tufekci, a professor of sociology at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, tells the National Post that while social media “is not

a magical tool,” it can “puncture the bubble dictators create around themselves.” And that’s exactly what happened in Tunisia. After a street vendor named Mohammed Bouazizi burned himself to death to protest harassment by government authorities, demonstrators took to the streets with “a rock in one hand and a cell phone in the other,” according to Al Jazeera, the Arab-centered news service. As a result, those demonstrators were not just rock throwers; they were also broadcasters, organizers and videographers. They collapsed the “bubble” that their leaders had spent 23 years inflating. And they did it with stories, not stones. “Social media,” Tufekci says, “enabled the revolting citizens of Tunisia to bypass censored state media and talk to each other.” Talk. Free, unfettered talk. That’s what the autocrats fear most — and what they will do anything to stop. • • • Steve Roberts’ new book, “From Every End of This Earth” (HarperCollins), was published in paperback this fall.

Who knew the simple act of bringing animals to church could grow into such a wonderful ministry for both young and old? As a Christian church, Franklin Baptist holds to the idea that God is the creator of all things, and without him nothing would have been created. The scriptures say, God created the animals first, and then he created man. It was not good for man to be alone, so woman was formed from man. In my humble opinion, I tend to think God saved the best for last. • • • Dicy McCullough is the author of a children’s book, “Tired of my Bath,” available at the Literary Book Post and online at

a protester throws rocks at pro-government supporters during clashes thursday near the egyptian Museum in cairo, egypt.

Foreigners, journalists become targets CAIRO (AP) — Foreign journalists were beaten with sticks and fists by pro-government mobs on Thursday, and two dozen were detained by security forces. The U.S. condemned what it called the “systematic targeting” of the reporters, photographers and film crews who have brought images of Egyptian protests to the world. Foreign photographers reported attacks by supporters of President Hosni Mubarak near Tahrir Square, the scene of vicious battles between Mubarak supporters and protesters demanding he step down after nearly 30 years in power. The Egyptian government has accused media outlets of being sympathetic to protesters. Among the many detained were correspondents for The New York Times, Washington Post and Al-Jazeera. Government opponents pushed supporters out of Cairo’s main square in a second day of battles. Organizers called for protesters trying to topple the regime to fill every square in the huge capital today. The new vice president, widely considered the first successor Mubarak has ever designated, fueled anti-foreign sentiment by going on state television and blaming outsiders for fomenting unrest. Mubarak, 82, told ABC television in an interview that he wants to resign. But he said he can’t for fear the country would sink into chaos. “I do not want to see Egyptians fighting each other,” he said. Soldiers, mainly protecting government buildings and important institutions, remained passive as they have since replacing police on the streets almost a week ago.

Tens of thousands call for ouster of Yemen’s president SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Tens of thousands of protesters Thursday staged unprecedented demonstrations against Yemen’s autocratic president, a key U.S. ally in battling Islamic militants, as unrest inspired by uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia spread further in the Arab world. The West is particularly concerned about instability in Yemen, home of the terrorist network al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. U.S. counterterrorism officials are worried that Yemeni security forces will be more focused on protecting the government, allowing al-Qaida to take advantage of any diminished scrutiny. President Ali Abdullah Saleh, in office for more than three decades, announced he would not seek re-election in 2013 and would not seek to pass power to his son.

House Republicans move to slash domestic spending WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans now controlling the House promised to slash domestic agencies’ budgets by almost 20 percent for the coming year, beginning

a drive to cut spending to the level it was before President Obama took office. “Washington’s spending spree is over,” declared Paul Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman. “The spending limits will restore sanity to a broken budget process,” he said, returning “to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout levels.” Republicans won’t get everything they want. Democrats are in charge of the White House and the Senate, and even House Republicans may have second thoughts when the magnitude of the cuts sinks in. The White House says the GOP effort could cause widespread furloughs of federal employees, force vulnerable people off subsidized housing, reduce services in national parks and mean less aid to schools and police and fire departments. House Republicans are seeking to keep their campaign promise to cut $100 billion from domestic programs. The initial cuts would win approval over the coming weeks as Congress wraps up the long-overdue 2011 budget. The second stage would come as the House GOP advances a fresh round of spending bills for the 2012 budget year, which begins Oct. 1.

Storm leaves roads dangerous as frigid temperatures remain CHICAGO (AP) — A mammoth winter storm left dangerously slick roads and frigid Midwestern temperatures in its frozen footprint a day after crushing snowladen buildings in the Northeast. Three people were killed when the pickup truck they were in drove off a snowcovered Oklahoma interstate and plunged 80 feet into an icy river. Wind chills dipped to nearly 30 below in parts of the nation’s midsection as the region began dealing with the storm’s aftermath. Chicago Mayor Richard Daley spoke publicly for the first time to defend his city’s handling of the storm, which stranded hundreds of motorists in whiteout conditions on the famous Lake Shore Drive. In a city known for punishing politicians for winter weakness, the retiring Daley said when pressed that he wouldn’t have handled anything differently and that workers responded well. Lake Shore reopened before dawn Thursday.

Vegas judge’s son accused in casino heist of $1.5 million LAS VEGAS (AP) — The bankrupt son of a Las Vegas judge followed a crude holdup at a posh casino by racking up hundreds of thousands of dollars in gambling losses and spending a week like a high roller, but got caught after trying to hawk his stolen chips online to poker players, police said Thursday. An arrest report for the helmeted ban-

dit, who ran out of the Bellagio hotel-casino with $1.5 million in chips during a gunpoint heist Dec. 14, said Anthony M. Carleo lost about $105,000 at the resort over the next month — including $73,000 on New Year’s Eve. He CARLEO stayed at least one week at the resort in late January, enjoying meals, drinks and rooms furnished by the casino. “He likes to gamble,” Las Vegas police Lt. Ray Steiber said as he described for reporters how Carleo, 29, was nabbed late Wednesday on the same casino floor from where the chips came. Carleo wasn’t armed and offered no resistance when he was taken into custody. Police recovered $900,000 in chips of different types — the ones stolen ranged from $100 to $25,000 — and can account for $1.2 million, Steiber said. Carleo’s father, Las Vegas Municipal Court Judge George Assad, issued a statement saying he and his family were “devastated and heartbroken to see my son arrested under these circumstances.”

Kenneth Cole’s tweet leads to apology; fake feed takes off NEW YORK (AP) — An epic Twitter FAIL for fashion designer Kenneth Cole on Thursday led him to apologize for a tweet that used the crisis in Cairo to promote his spring line. The offensive tweet touched off an online flash mob of criticism and inspired a fake Twitter feed that mocked Cole’s original while attracting more than 3,000 followers on the microblogging site in a matter of hours. The offending tweet from @KennethCole read: “Millions are in an uproar in Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is now available online.” The tweet went on to provide a link to the collection, but it was taken down about five hours later. Cole’s apologies weren’t good enough for whoever raced onto Twitter and created a satirical fake Cole feed that disparaged his tweet.

Pointing a laser at aircraft may become a federal offense WASHINGTON (AP) — Pointing handheld lasers at aircraft — a problem that aviation officials warn could lead to a crash — would become a federal crime punishable by up to five years in prison under an amendment approved by the Senate. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., the sponsor of the amendment, said people have used powerful lasers capable of temporarily blinding pilots. The Federal Aviation Administration says the number of such incidents reached 2,836 in 2010.

Reagan centennial

Decade after death, some say former president remains misunderstood SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Ronald Reagan’s name is enshrined on an airport, an aircraft carrier, belt buckles and highways. His likeness — with that sunny smile — appears on drink coasters, statues, talking dolls and a Rose Bowl Parade float. Conservatives make the pilgrimage to his presidential library in Simi Valley, a showcase of all things Reagan. Presidential candidates debate there, hoping to be dubbed heir to the Reagan legacy. Even President Barack Obama invokes his name. As the 100th anniversary of his birth approaches on Feb. 6, and a generation after he left the White House, the nation’s 40th president is held in higher esteem now than when he was in office. Still, the popular image of “The Gipper” — resolute, square-shouldered, unfailingly optimistic — overlooks a more complicated presidency — and person. Do Americans, less than a decade after his death, have a clear idea of who he was? “No,” says historian Kevin Starr. How did a former radio announcer, middling actor and union leader in Hollywood become a titanic figure in American history? Even with his repassociated press utation as the Great ronald reagan in 1981 Communicator, “there remains something opaque, something ... even mysterious in Ronald Reagan,” Starr says. This week the nation will celebrate Reagan’s life, with tributes from a video to be shown at the Super Bowl in Dallas to a Beach Boys concert in California. Senators will pay tribute in floor speeches in Washington, and Sarah Palin will address a banquet tonight in Reagan’s honor in Santa Barbara, near his beloved ranch. Long a Republican hero, Reagan was praised for his role ending the Cold War, kick-starting an ailing economy and coaxing Americans out of a collective funk. At turns revered on the right and reviled on the left in his 1980s heyday, Americans now rank him among their most admired presidents. But the Reagan myth can obscure the man. The president’s 52-year-old son, Ron, says he sometimes doesn’t recognize the pop culture-version of his father, the man held up as a patriarch of Republican politics. And he thinks attempts to idolize his father, known for his modesty, miss the point. “When we are electing presidents we are electing human beings and all human beings have flaws,” Reagan tells the Associated Press. In his recently published book, “My Father at 100,” Reagan describes his father as “warm yet remote” and “easy to love yet hard to know.” “You may think you know Ronald Reagan, or at least the 90 percent or so that was so long and frequently on public display,” he writes. “However, even to those of us who were closest to him, that hidden 10 percent remains a considerable mystery.” Perhaps not surprising for a former actor, Reagan is often remembered for his best lines: “Trust, but verify,” his warning about Soviet relations; “Our enemy is no longer Red Coats, but red ink” and other jeremiads about big government and spending; and references to the “shining city upon a hill,” which recalls a 17th-century sermon. But Reagan is sometimes misunderstood, adopted for causes or ideas that don’t dovetail neatly with his record in office. Reagan is seen as an apostle of lower taxes, but he supported what was then the largest tax increase in California history when he served as governor, from 1967 to 1975. Cutting deals with Democratic leaders in Congress, he slashed and raised taxes during his White House days. The debt held by the public climbed on his watch — from $712 billion in 1980 to $2 trillion in 1988, and he never presented a balanced budget to Congress during his eight years in office. The president remembered for a massive military buildup also proposed abolishing nuclear weapons. Known for traditional, Christian values, he was divorced and remarried and, according to his son’s book, received a D-grade in a college course on Christ’s life. He’s often embraced by conservatives who want to see Social Security privatized, yet Reagan blessed a 1982 Social Security commission’s blueprint for solvency that generated almost three decades of surpluses.

Fat cancers: Developing nations also seeing scourge of wealthy countries ATLANTA (AP) — “Fat cancers” usually associated with wealthy countries are becoming more common in the developing world, too, according to new reports. Obese people are thought to be at higher risk for many so-called “fat cancers,” including breast and colon cancer. A separate report coming out today shows obesity rates worldwide have doubled in the last three decades, especially in the West but also nearly everywhere else. “Sadly, changing ways of life, such as reduced physical activity, are making people unhealthier and in turn prone to such diseases as cancer,” Dr. Eduardo Cazap, president of the Union for International Cancer Control, said in a statement released by the World Health Organi-

zation. For decades, health officials have worried about the impact of cigarette smoking — another nasty habit common in industrialized countries — on lung cancer deaths in developing countries. But now, they say, it’s becoming increasingly urgent that those nations also do something about overeating and poor health habits. The WHO on Friday recommended 2 1⁄2 hours a week of moderate physical activity for reducing the risk of breast and colon cancers. Some scientists think increased levels of insulin and certain sex hormones in the obese may somehow trigger cancer growth. Cancer is seen mostly in older people, and tends to be more com-

mon in societies without as much of the diseases, violence and other problems that kill people early in life. Infectious diseases have dominat-

ed in less developed countries, and that’s true even in the world of cancer. Cervical cancer, caused by a sexually transmitted virus, has been a leading cause of cancer deaths in women in many countries. But in recent years, breast cancer has surpassed cervical cancer as a cause of death in some developing countries. And the number of new breast cancer cases has surpassed cervical cancer in places like Mumbai, India and Setif, Algeria, according to researchers at the American Cancer Society. The cancer advocacy group released a report Friday showing that the developing world’s share of cancer deaths worldwide is increasing. In 2008, there were 4.8 million cancer deaths in developing countries

— up from 4.7 million the previous year — out of the 7.6 million deaths worldwide. A separate report, meanwhile, estimates that 340,000 cancer cases could be prevented each year in the United States if more people ate better, kept their weight down, exercised and drank less alcohol. That estimate came from the American Institute for Cancer Research/World Cancer Research Fund. The reports were being released today to mark World Cancer Day. Some cancer experts referred to a WHO prediction in 2007 that cancer would become the world’s leading killer by 2010, replacing heart disease. A WHO spokesman said there’s disagreement about how to group heart diseases in rankings.

Central NC under severe drought conditions RALEIGH (AP) — Almost one-quarter of North Carolina is now under a severe drought. An assessment of drought conditions released Thursday estimates that more than 80 percent of the state is abnormally dry. Parts of North Carolina from Charlotte to Raleigh

face the worst conditions while coastal counties are considered fine. North Carolina has grown increasingly parched over the last month due to a lack of significant rainfall. The North Carolina Drought Management Advisory Council

recommends that people who live in areas of severe drought eliminate nonessential uses of water. Council chairman Woody Yonts says water supplies are OK right now. Dry conditions now cover much of the South.

FROM 1A Rockwell had just become their new mission field. They bought FillTech in May 2008, added “USA” to the name and converted the temporary workers to permanent, fulltime employees with benefits. Everyone got a raise. They introduced a profit sharing plan “so that every employee shares in the success and growth of the company,” Dennis Jones said. “We would either sink or swim together.” Long-time friend and business associate Scott Hughes moved his family from Portland, Ore. to serve as chief operations officer. One of the previous owners, Rita Lefler, joined the new company as director of operations. Noble, the chemist, is also a partner and oversees new product development and regulatory affairs for FillTech. And Godfrey continues to serve as plant and batching manager. “They took on the problems of the company,” Godfrey said. “It was such a relief that our doors would stay open.” When they realized the company had no more orders to fill, the Joneses shut down the plant and sent everyone home for seven weeks with pay. Along with Hughes, the

Feds say man snuck 63 guns out of country in checked luggage RALEIGH (AP) — A North Carolina man concealed a total of 63 pistols in his checked luggage on multiple trips to the United Kingdom, where he exchanged the weapons for large cash payments, prosecutors said in court documents Thursday. A new indictment accuses Steven Neal Greenoe of 50 federal charges related to the weapons. Greenoe, 37, would purchase the firearms, take them apart and disguise them as engineering samples and inert weapons before concealing them in his luggage. He traveled at least eight times from Raleigh to the United Kingdom in 2010 and delivered firearms to unnamed coconspirators, prosecutors said. Greenoe was first charged last summer with attempting to illegally export 16 guns. The case has caused consternation in Britain, where gun crime is rare, pistols are banned and few law enforcement officers carry firearms. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said last week the case was a topic of discussions in her visit to London. U.S. Attorney George Hold-

ing, who oversees the prosecution district in Raleigh, said he was troubled that Greenoe was able to take weapons on several trips without getting caught. He said investigators hope to learn more about how he was able to do it. “The magnitude of this case touches not only U.S. citizens but our great British allies,” Holding said Thursday. “Our federal firearms laws were put into place to protect our citizens. However, our obligation as good neighbors is just as important to ensure that others are not harmed by individuals who break our firearms laws.” The case has already led to arrests in the Liverpool area of northern England, where two men accused of conspiring with Greenoe to supply the weapons were arrested on Tuesday, according to the Times of London. Prosecutors also accuse Greenoe of making false statements when acquiring the weapons, failing to provide notice to the airline that firearms were being transported and failing to obtain approval for firearms export.

couple went to work figuring out how to rebuild FillTech. Since then, the company has grown to 25 fulltime employees and become a viable player in the manufacturing industry, specializing in private label lip balm. The FDA-compliant facility makes 45 personal care products ranging from hand sanitizer to liquid vitamins. FillTech has several national accounts, including Food Lion, Walgreens and Dollar Tree. The Joneses acknowledge it hasn’t been easy. “It’s been an uphill battle in this economy,” Dennis Jones said. The couple has yet to take a salary. They have a product-development business in Virginia, and Dennis Jones’ book “Climbing Out of Adversity” is about to be released. They have an option to buy the lot next door to FillTech, located at 228 W. Main St. They will donate the vacant house on the property to Nazareth Children’s Home and construct an addition to the plant, Dennis Jones said. “We are waiting for the Lord to provide what we need,” he said. Their philosophy has been to build lives, not just build a business, they said. “Despite today’s troubled and uncertain economy, God has been true to the vision he placed in our hearts,” Dennis Jones said. “And through the dedication and

Attorneys to assist Perdue in probe RALEIGH (AP) — Two well-known defense attorneys are helping Gov. Beverly Perdue as a prosecutor scrutinizes her 2008 campaign spending. The News & Observer of Raleigh says Perdue hired Joe Cheshire and Wade Smith. A statement from Cheshire on Thursday said the two would answer questions Perdue might have following reports that her campaign was under a criminal investigation.

Last October, Perdue announced federal authorities were investigating her campaign. A Wake County prosecutor also had questions about campaign airline flights. Cheshire told the newspaper that he and Smith don’t believe Perdue did anything wrong or was the subject of any investigation. The StarNews of Wilmington first reported Tuesday that Cheshire was assisting Perdue in an unspecified matter.

Questions linger about Roethlisberger BY DAVID CRARY Associated Press

NEW YORK — By Sunday night, Ben Roethlisberger could be in rarefied company as a three-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback. Yet even if he joins the likes of superstar Tom Brady and Hall of Famer Troy Aikman, marketing experts say the Steelers QB probably won’t overcome his offthe-field notoriety — including two sexual assault accusations — and pick up the flurry of endorsements NFL champs typically enjoy. “You don’t build back trust with a onegame performance, even if it’s the Super Bowl,” said Bill Glenn, senior vice president of the Dallas-based sports-business firm The Marketing Arm. “I’d be surprised if there’s a long line outside AssociAted Press his agent’s office even if he wins MVP.” Pittsburgh quarterback Ben roethlisberger is asked a quesRoethlisberger has had a minimal tion during a news conference on thursday. presence in advertising since he was ac-

cused in March of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old college student — the second time since 2008 that he faced assault allegations. Georgia authorities declined to bring charges, but he received a fourgame suspension at the start of this season for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. His sturdy play since his return, particularly in the playoffs, has won back the hearts of some Pittsburgh fans who had soured on him. But nationally, according to marketing experts, his image remains tarnished, and he needs more time to rehabilitate it. “The best thing Mr. Roethlisberger can do is have a very quiet week off the field and a very loud week on the field,” said Kevin Adler, CEO of the Chicagobased sports consulting firm Engage Marketing. Even with a championship, Adler said, “there’s a significant percentage of corporate America that would a still be a lit-

tle gun-shy. “But with good game and a quiet offseason, there’s an opportunity to develop a maturation of his brand in the future.” The challenge facing Roethlisberger is starkly illustrated in the so-called NScores which the Nielsen Co. compiles to rate athletes’ endorsement potential based on their appeal, name recognition and other factors. His score has plummeted from above 140 in 2008 to 24 in the wake of the assault cases; by comparison, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ score is 39 and Peyton Manning’s is 262. A comparable rating system run by The Marketing Arm — the Davie Brown Index — shows Rodgers ahead of Roethlisberger in endorsement potential and trust, even though the Steeler star is better known.



NFL says owners unified BY HOWARD FENDRICH Associated Press

DALLAS — An outside labor lawyer for the NFL says the league’s owners are as single-minded right now as NHL owners were when that sport lost an entire season to a lockout. “The only other time I’ve seen owners this unified ... was in 2004-05, in hockey, where there was also complete unity,” said Bob Batterman, who worked for the NHL during its labor dispute with players. “And I see it here. These men and women — there are a couple of women in the room — know what’s wrong with the business today and know how it needs to be changed.” Summing up the current negotiations from the NFL’s perspective, Batterman added Wednesday: “It’s not a revenue problem, even though revenues aren’t growing as fast as they were. These folks are masters at generating revenues. The problem is at cost side. Costs have been growing faster than revenues. That’s simple.” Batterman spoke after a pre-Super Bowl news conference held by Jeff Pash, the NFL’s lead in-house negotiator. Pash reiterated many of the same points he made during a meeting with reporters at league headquarters in New York last week, saying that both sides would risk hundreds of millions of dollars if a new collective bargaining agreement isn’t in place by the start of the 2011 regular season. The old CBA was agreed to in 2006, but owners exercised an opt-out clause in 2008. That deal expires at midnight at the end of March 3, and the union expects the owners to lock out players as soon as the next day. Among the key issues: how to split the roughly $9 billion in league revenues between owners and players; the league’s push for an 18-game regular season; a rookie wage scale; benefits for former players. “There is probably more common ground on a number of key issues than people may realize,” Pash said, “but obviously the fundamental economics have to be addressed.” Also on Wednesday, when arbitrator Shyam Das denied a grievance by the union that sought to make teams pay health insurance premiums for active players beyond March 3, even if there is no new CBA to replace the expiring one. The union filed the grievance in December, saying clubs should have to continue to pay for benefits through Aug. 31, when the insurance plan year ends. The NFL argued insurance would need to paid for by the players or union without a new deal.

Campbell heads to Davidson BY MIKE LONDON

KANNAPOLIS — Attracting football players at Davidson is a little different than it is most places. The Wildcats, can’t offer athletic scholarships, per se, but what they can do is identify exceptional students who can also play high-level football and recruit them with academic-based scholarships. Davidson usually has to scour the

whole country to find scholar-athletes, but it located one prospect close to home. A.L. Brown quarterback Martel Campbell made things official with the Wildcats on National Signing Day. Campbell had also drawn interest from Ivy League schools, Wofford and Elon, but Davidson started recruiting him during his junior year and always had the inside track because of a strong family tie.

Campbell’s brother, Elliott, is a senior at Davidson and played outside linebacker for the Wildcats. “My brother’s been through the experience at Davidson for four years, and he recommends it,” Martel said. Not surprisingly, Campbell made his college choice based on Davidson’s academic challenges, not on how many times a game it throws the football. “Academics definitely were the

most important thing for me, but Davidson is also offering the opportunity to continue playing football,” Campbell said. “I love football, so I’ll have the best of both worlds.” Campbell’s 4.6 GPA — he’s currently taking AP Calculus and AP English — got Davidson’s attention more than his football stats, although they were impressive enough.


Pettitte to finalize retirement BY RONALD BLUM Associated Press

NEW YORK — Andy Pettitte is going ahead with his decision to retire, leaving the New York Yankees with two huge holes in what appears to be a rather wobbly starting rotation. The team scheduled a Friday morning news conference at Yankee Stadium for Pettitte to announce the choice he had been leaning toward since the end of last season. “I don’t think enough people know that he’s still the leader of this pitching staff until today,” former Yankees right fielder Paul O’Neill said in a telephone

interview with The Associated Press. A five-time World Series champion and the third-winningest pitcher in team history, Pettitte became a free agent after the World Series. The 38-year-old lefthander has not attempted to negotiate a contract. New York has no proven starters behind CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes and A.J. Burnett, who struggled during the second half of last season. Having failed to sign free agent Cliff Lee, New York has agreed to minor league contracts with Bartolo Colon and Freddy Garcia in recent weeks, trying to find more options for a fourth and fifth

starter in addition to youngster Ivan Nova and Sergio Mitre. The Yankees also are interested in signing Kevin Millwood, a person familiar those conversations said Thursday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because talks are ongoing. Pettitte finished 240-138 with a 3.88 ERA in 16 major league seasons.

Cougars lose fight for 3rd BY MIKE LONDON

STATESVILLE — Carson sharpshooter Nick Houston was disgusted, not sad, but no one W. Iredell 86 would’ve blamed Carson 78 him if he’d broken down and cried after Thursday’s NPC game. The 6-foot-2 senior had the highest scoring game of his career and probably the best game of his life, but his 37 points, 10 rebounds and five assists weren’t enough for the Cougars to win at West Iredell. With Zach “Jackie Moon” Follrod matching Houston’s bombs with stickbacks, spinning layups and free throws, the Warriors outscored Carson 86-78 in an uptempo, Senior Night scrap for third place. Follrod piled up 25 of his 36 points in the second half and had 15 in the fourth quarter. “When Houston set his feet, it was automatic,” West Iredell coach Benjamin Johnson said. “My guys were all over him, so they’re looking over at me shaking their heads. I told them there was nothing else they could do except maybe run into him.” The 78 points were the most Carson has scored in its five-year history in a losing effort. “I knew when it was 38-38 at the half that we probably weren’t going to win this thing if we gave up 75,” Carson coach Brian Perry said. “We’ve got to do a better job on defense, and as good a night as Nick had shooting, all I can think about right now is that we gave up 86. There were times when they couldn’t stop us, but I don’t think we ever stopped them.” West Iredell actually started slowly. With Houston on fire, the Cougars jumped out 14-4 and led by 11 when Dontae Gilbert cashed in a driving layup late in the first quarter. But Jalen Gray and Marquis Stevenson started making 3s for the Warriors (11-8, 6-4), and it was even

at halftime. “Those two guys can shoot,” Houston said. “If they don’t get hot, we’re probably up 20 at the half.” Both teams put up points in bunches in an even third quarter. Carson (8-11, 5-5) slid behind by seven early in the fourth quarter, but Rik Heggins (11 points) stopped Follrod on a couple of possessions, and the Cougars rallied. When Houston drilled a 3-pointer in transition with 4:30 remaining, it was tied at 70. Follrod had two stickbacks in a matter of seconds to put the Warriors ahead to stay, and Carson lost some steam when D.J. Love (10 points), who appeared to be stationary, was called for an illegal screen as he tried to free up Houston for a 3-pointer. With Carson trailing 79-75, Houston made a nice dish to Love inside, but 6-6 Matt Harris blocked the shot. and Harris and Love both received technical fouls when things got heated as players wrestled on the floor for the loose ball. Houston’s fourth 3 of the fourth quarter and seventh of the night pulled the Cougars within 81-78 with 45 seconds left, but Carson didn’t score again. Houston’s displeasure with a nocall after he got banged around a bit in the corner earned him a late technical, and the Warriors padded their winning margin at the foul line. “We shoulda won,” Houston said. “But it was like we got we got caught up in an offensive mentality and stopped playing defense. It just turned into a score-athon.” CARSON (78) —Houston 37, R. Heggins 11, Love 10, Gilbert 6, Wagner 5, Eagle 4, Williams 3, Parker 2, Laws, Raper W. IREDELL (86) — Follrod 36, Stevenson 18, J.

Carson girls turn it on BY MIKE LONDON

STATESVILLE — Carson’s girls put a miserable first half behind them and wiped out West Carson 72 Iredell 72-40 on W. Iredell 40 Thursday. Kelly Dulkoski scored 20 points for Carson (14-5, 8-2), which has just one fewer win this season than it managed in its first four combined. Allison Blackwell, deadly at the foul line, had 18, and Tyesha Phillips, tough on the glass, added 14. The Cougars shot 28 percent prior to halftime, but they looked a lot more like the second-place team in the NPC in the second half. “We had us a little chat at halftime,” Carson coach Brooke Misenheimer said. “We could not put the ball in the hole. We didn’t rebound well at all. It looked like were just coasting.” West Iredell (3-15, 2-8) had Senior Night emotion working for it. The undermanned Warriors played with passion and trailed 26-20 at the break. But the second half began with a Dulkoski 3-pointer and her steal for a lefty layup. Then Dulkoski fed Phillips for a three-point play. Suddenly, that six-point lead was 14. Picking up its defensive pressure, Carson scored 15 points in the first three minutes of the third quarter to spurt ahead by 20, and it was over. “I can’t fault our effort in the first half at all,” WI coach Phil Fox said.

“But then we got a little nonchalant with the ball in the third quarter and turned it over. Carson had a run, and we just don’t have enough offense to come back from that kind of deficit.” Both Dulkoski and Blackwell enjoyed their highest-scoring games since Christmas. Blackwell’s third quarter included 7-for-7 shooting from the foul line and a three-point play on a break after Katherine Barringer made a strong rebound and nice outlet pass. “Coach didn’t really yell at us at halftime, but it was more like she straightened us out,” Blackwell said. “The first half, we were turning it over, missing shots, not playing defense and not boxing out, and that’s pretty much everything. But the second half our intensity was a whole lot better.” 

NOTES: Carson’s leading scorer Chloe Monroe didn’t have a good shooting night, but she still scored eight. She needs nine tonight at South Rowan to become the first Carson girl to score 500 in her career. CARSON (72) — Dulkoski 20, Blackwell 18, Phillips 14, Monroe 8, Holman 5, Barringer 3, Clark 2, White 2, Cloninger, Stirewalt. W.

FRIDAY February 4, 2011


Angling for a big bass? Now is a good time to scout High Rock very freshwater fisherman wants to catch a big bass on an artificial lure. Very few have done it. I haven’t done it, yet. And I fish a lot. Around here, a big bass is pretty much five pounds or heavier. This year I’m going to break the 5-pound barrier. To do that I’m going to work backwards from my goal. I’ve found that is the best way to solve most any problem. First define the goal. Then figure out each step you need to take to achieve GLENN that goal. HUDSON Big bass can be caught in farm ponds quite easily. Catching one on High Rock Lake is quite an accomplishment. That is what I want to do. The easiest way to catch a big bass at High Rock Lake is to fish the spawn in the spring. Bass spawn around the new and full moon when the water reaches 65 degrees. Right now the water is at or below 40 degrees. The spawn will happen in April or possibly even May if we continue to have a long, cold winter. Only when the water gets above 50 degrees are the bass even going to be truly susceptible to artificial lures. That’s when bass begin to feed heavily to recover from the winter and prepare for the spawn. When the water gets up to 65 degrees then it will really be time to get serious about catching big fish. That is because the biggest bass are the females. And they are most

The sounds of fishing bring an added dimension to every trip. Some sounds are indications of a successful trip, while others tend to be problematic. So, let’s listen to some of them. Howling wind, rumbling thunder and pouring rain might be the first sign that a fishing trip isn’t off to a good start. On the other hand, a forecast of partly cloudy skies, warm temperatures and light winds will bring a smile to any angler’s face. Fishermen relish the noise of screeching sea birds that dive into a fray of feeding stripers. And, the shouts of “fish on!” “get the net!” and “nice fish!” add excitement to every fishing adventure. The noise made when a fishing line breaks, or the smashing sound of a favorite rod getting crushed by a car door are usually followed by a few choice sounds. Worst yet, there are days that just begin with a really bad start – like when you turn the boat key and the only sound you hear is the clicking of a dead battery. There are also many great sounds that are a pleasure to hear and truly make the day worthwhile. Some favorites are the unforgettable sound of splashing fish, the clicking of the blade on a buzz-bait as it comes across the water tantalizing every bass within hearing distance, and the swishing sound of line as it slices through the water when being pulled from the reel by an oversized striped bass. Birds make some of the most interesting and noticeable sounds — like the harsh cawing sound of a flock of black crows, the honking of geese flying overhead, or the very common sounds of quacking ducks as they communicate with each other. Then, there is the, “I wonder what kind of bird that is?” A bird that is often mistaken for a woodpecker in flight makes that sound. It is actually the Kingfishers high-pitched chattering that turns your head. Two sounds that bring peace of mind and total relaxation to those who listen are the babbling of a flowing brook, and the pounding of waves washing ashore on a sandy beach. But to a fisherman, nothing is better than the

Gus: Fresh caught white perch, crappie and bass are delicious when breaded in batter, fried in peanut oil and served with hush puppies, fries, slaw and iced tea. The Hot Spots of the week: Deep-water stripers, bass and perch are being taken on bucktails and jigging spoons at the confluence of most major creek channels and the Catawba River. Fish are suspending in water to ninety feet at the mouth of Hagers, Mountain and Reed Creeks. Anglers fishing from the banks of the “hot holes” are catching a variety of fish with bloodworms, chicken livers and minnows. Cat fishing is also good considering the cold-water temperatures. The surface water temperature is in the 30s and 40s depending on location and warmer near the hot holes. The lake level is about 3.6 feet below full pond. Capt.

Two anglers from North Carolina have qualified to compete in the 2011 Bassmaster Classic, slated for Feb. 1820. The revered competition will be held on the Louisiana Delta out of New Orleans. It will be the first Classic on those waters since Hurricane Katrina and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The fishery is thought to be in excellent condition, but adapting to the effects of those events presents additional challenges for the competitors. Alabama leads all states with 10 residents in the 50-angler field. The North Carolina qualifiers include: • Tracy Adams, Wilkesboro. Trips to Classic: 1. Career earnings: $21,360. Qualified for 2011 Classic as: 2nd place Northern Opens. The 2010 Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Northern Opens were Adams’ first three B.A.S.S. events. In the three events, he placed 3rd, 33rd, and 6th. • Dave Wolak, Wake Forest. Trips to Classic: 5. Career earnings: $871,634. Qualified for 2011 Classic as: 23rd place, AOY. Wolak has two B.A.S.S. wins, his first in

2006 and his most recent during the 2010 Northern Open event on Lake Champlain. Has finished in the money in 62 of 92 career entries. Leading the field is reigning Bassmaster Classic and Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year (AOY) champion Kevin VanDam. The fisherman from Kalamazoo, Mich., won his first Bassmaster Classic in 2001 on the Louisiana Delta, and is only the second angler in B.A.S.S. history to hold both the Classic and Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year titles simultaneously. Also qualifying for the 2011 Bassmaster Classic: • The top 36 anglers in the 2010 Toyota Tundra Bassmaster AOY standings derived from the 2010 Bassmaster Elite Series. • The top two anglers in Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Open Series points standings in each of three 2010 Opens Divisions. • Six amateur competitors through the 2010 Bassmaster Federation Nation Championship presented by Yamaha and Skeeter Boats. • The winner of the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Weekend Series operated by American Bass Anglers.


BIG BEN FroM 1B Chris Anderson, a Marketing Arm spokesman, said Roethlisberger’s trust levels were on par with celebrities such as Snoop Dogg, Allen Iverson and Kim Kardashian. John Sweeney, a professor of sports communication at the University of North Carolina’s School of Journalism, noted that Roethlisberger — even pre-scandal — was never in Manning’s league as a pitchman. He won deals to represent a barbecue sauce, a Pittsburgh auto dealership and a beef jerky brand, although that company dropped him last year. He also remains on the roster of athletes signed by Nike to wear its gear, although Nike confirmed it hasn’t used him in recent advertisements. “When people talk about marketability with Ben, how far is he going to fall anyway?” Sweeney asked. “He’s not a huge player in the huge sponsorship market, so there’s not as much that’s threatened.” Sometimes, there’s a marketing niche for athletes with edgy reputations. Rick Burton, a former chief marketing officer of the U.S. Olympic Committee and now a sports marketing professor at Syracuse, cited the NBA’s quirky Dennis Rodman and hot-tempered former soccer star Eric Cantona as examples. “These athletes with controversial images sometimes end up in demand because they have the capacity to break through the clutter,” Burton said. “But I don’t think Roethlisberger wants to be an anti-hero. ... I don’t think he wants to go down the ‘bad boy’ route.” Burton suggested the Steelers quarterback may have different advantage. “He actually may be more affordable, because he’s in recovery mode, recovering his brand, his reputation,” Burton said. “Companies may look at him as a lot cheaper than if Peyton Manning was winning the Super Bowl.” Roethlisberger himself, during the run-up to Sunday’s game, has tried to deflect talk about his suspension and offfield problems. “I want to be the guy people look up to,” he told reporters in Dallas. “I want to be that kind of husband, father and grandfather someday if I am lucky enough.” Say what he will, the spotlight stays on him. A video of his outing Tuesday night, at which he treated his offensive linemen to dinner and drinks at a barbecue place and (badly) sang Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” tore up the Web on Thursday. Roethlisberger’s agent, Ryan Tollner, didn’t respond to a request for comment on the marketability issue, made through his firm, Irvine, Calif.-based Rep 1 Sports Group. The firm’s website says the marketing portfolio assembled by Tollner for Roethlisberger “generates millions of dollars per year, with creative deals such as Big Ben’s BBQ Sauces, Big Ben’s Beef Jerky, a T-shirt campaign, memorabilia arrangement and profitable website.” Among the NFL’s legion of female fans, many aren’t yet ready to give Roethlisberger a clean slate. “I don’t care if he scores seven touchdowns — he doesn’t deserve a single endorsement,” said Erin Matson, a vice president of the National Organization for Women. “If companies were to partner with him as a result of this game, they would see an enormous backlash.” Anna Holmes, a sports fan who founded the women’s-interest website, said she was unsure she would even watch the Super Bowl because of Roethlisberger. “There would be a bad taste in my mouth to seeing him on the screen,” she said. A die-hard Chicago Bears fan, writer Veronica Arreola, said she wouldn’t even pick Roethlisberger for her fantasy team. “I don’t think on-the-field performance redeems offthe-field behavior,” she said. “As a feminist and a mom, I would never buy a Roethlisberger jersey or anything for my daughter. ... He has not come off as remorseful at all.”

ohio state’s Jon diebler, center, goes up for a shot against Michigan’s stu douglas, left, and darius Morris. Associated Press From around college basketball... COLUMBUS, Ohio — Jared Sullinger hammered away inside for 19 points and 15 rebounds and No. 1 Ohio State came back from a sluggish first half to beat Michigan 62-53 Thursday night, helping the Buckeyes open with 23 wins for the second time in school history. William Buford added 13 points as Ohio State (23-0, 100 Big Ten) extended its conference lead to three games. Tim Hardaway Jr. had 15 points, Darius Morris 12 and Jordan Morgan 10 for Michigan (13-9, 3-6), which fell to 1-22 all-time against No. 1s. The Wolverines led 26-23 at the half and by five early in the second half before Ohio State continually turned to Sullinger inside to force fouls or muscle his way in for baskets. Ohio State was 15 of 25 at the line to Michigan’s 1 of 4. Notre Dame 83, DePaul 58 ROSEMONT, Ill. — Ben Hansbrough scored 24 points and No. 9 Notre Dame used runs at the end of the first half and beginning of the second to run the Irish’s winning streak to four games. Notre Dame (18-4, 7-3) was coming off a nine-day layoff following its upset win at Pittsburgh on Jan. 24. It didn’t take long for the rust — if there was much at all — to go away. DePaul, meanwhile, suffered its 22nd straight loss in the Big East, counting one league tournament game. The Blue Demons (6-15, 0-8) have also dropped 25 straight to ranked opponents. Scott Martin added 15 points and Tim Abromatis 13



for the Irish. Freshman Brandon Young led DePaul with 16. Oregon St. 68, Washington 56 PORTLAND, Ore. — Jared Cunningham had 19 points and the Oregon State Beavers snapped a three-game losing streak. Scott Suggs had a careerhigh 18 points, including five 3-pointers for Washington (15-6, 7-3 Pac-10) which lost its second straight. Oregon State (9-12, 4-6) took a 58-52 lead on Omari Johnson’s layup off an offensive rebound. After Isaiah Thomas made 2 of 3 free throws for the Huskies, Calvin Haynes made one for the Beavers. Haynes’ layup and foul shot with 1:48 left extended it to 62-54 and put the Gill Coliseum crowd on its feet. The Beavers made free throws the rest of the way to put it away, snapping an eightgame winning streak for Washington in the series between the two teams. Arizona 78, Stanford 69 STANFORD, Calif. — Derrick Williams shrugged off pain in his right pinky to score 21 points and grab eight rebounds. The sophomore star had part of his shooting hand buried in tape and gauze to protect his pinky after it was bent backward against UCLA last week and still put together a complete performance. Lamont Jones added 15 points, and Jesse Perry scored 12 to help Arizona(194, 8-3) overtake Washington for the Pac-10 lead after the Huskies lost to Oregon State earlier in the night. The Wildcats have won four straight.

CAMPBELL FroM 1B A.L. Brown coach Ron Massey pointed out the Wonders lost only four games that Campbell started in his two years as the varsity quarterback. In his career, Campbell passed for 2,400 yards, rushed for 1,109 yards and accounted for 37 touchdowns. He threw for 1,404 yards and 17 touchdowns his senior year. “Throughout the process of his career, he stayed on a good emotional level,” Massey said. “Never too down and never too up.” Brown played a big chunk of the 2010 season without star running back Travis Riley, but still won the SPC championship and went 12-2. The low point of the season for Brown was the home game with Thomasville, an ugly 207 loss that included four interception thrown by Campbell. Brown trailed 24-7 a minute before halftime in its next game at Kings Mountain, but an 18-yard touchdown pass thrown by Campbell to Keeon Johnson nine seconds before the half turned around that game — and the season. “Martel did a great job leading us back at Kings Mountain,” Massey said. “That was the turning point of the season.” Campbell’s most obvious physical attribute is his strength. Coach Todd Hagler, who is responsible for the Wonders’ fitness and conditioning, says Campbell is off the charts strength-wise and is the strongest quarterback he’s coached in Kannapolis. “Coach Hag was the first person I met when I came to Brown,” Campbell said. “I worked with him every day in the summers. There are times when he asks you do to things that you don’t want to do, but he always has your best interest at heart.” Davidson recruited Campbell as a quar-

terback, but with his frame he may have a second option at tight end if QB doesn’t work out. And no matter how football goes, you can count on him getting his degree. Economics is his planned field of study. “When you have a kid that qualifies to go to Davidson, it speaks well for your program and your school,” Massey said. “We feel like we’ve got a lot of great kids here, but Martel is exceptional.” 

There was no local “Signing Day” for Riley, who has already enrolled in classes at North Carolina. Riley rushed for 2,778 yards and scored 45 TDs for the Wonders in three varsity seasons that were all shortened by injury. Most of his production came his junior year. He was limited to six games as a senior by leg and knee injuries and really was only 100-percent healthy on opening night. He still was a late addition to the Shrine Bowl roster. “When I watched him at Shrine Bowl practice, it was the first time this year that Travis really looked close to being Travis Riley,” Massey said. “Travis didn’t have to try to come back this year, but he felt a commitment to his teammates and the program, and that says a lot for him.” Riley should be fine to participate in spring ball with the Tar Heels, but Massey said that’s not the biggest consideration. “Travis is also an outstanding student and a great representative of our school,” Massey said. “Carolina should be a good fit for him football-wise, and that was the school where he really wanted to go. The academics there were an even bigger consideration for him than the football.” 

The most likely Wonders to sign this spring are linebacker Andrew Leslie and receiver Teven Jones, although Jones who has solid grades and a terrific jump shot, could opt to play college basketball.

Sanchez dodges surgery Associated Press GRAPEVINE, Texas — Mark Sanchez won’t need surgery on his injured right shoulder. The New York Jets quarterback said Thursday doctors told him rest and mild rehabilitation would be enough to return the shoulder to full strength. Sanchez was injured when the Jets won at Pittsburgh on Dec. 19, but the shoulder wasn’t a factor in New York’s run to the AFC championship game. The Jets lost the title game to the Steelers, who play Green Bay in the Super Bowl on Sunday. Sanchez said a second MRI soon after the playoff loss showed swelling and bruising in the shoulder had improved enough to avoid a second surgery in two offseasons for Sanchez. He had knee surgery last year. • CHARLOTTE — The Carolina Panthers have a new linebackers coach. The Panthers will hire University of Georgia linebackers coach Warren Belin, UGA spokesman Claude Felton confirmed Thursday. The Panthers will not announce the hire until Belin signs the contract. Belin has been a college assistant for 20 years at Cornell, East Tennessee State, William & Mary, SMU, Vanderbilt and Georgia.

Love’s cologne wasn’t enough to sway the Western Conference coaches. The Minnesota Timberwolves power forward was left off the All-Star team when the reserves were announced on Thursday night. Love is averaging 21.4 and leads the league with 15.5 rebounds per game. He also had the first 30-point, 30-rebound game in 28 years and is shooting over 43 percent from 3point range. But all those numbers weren’t enough to offset the Timberwolves’ 11-37 record, which is the worst in the West. Love has one more chance to make the team if Commissioner David Stern picks him as an alternate to replace the injured Yao Ming. The Timberwolves sent the coaches in the West a bottle of “Numb(hash)rs” cologne to promote Love for the game. • NEW ORLEANS — A person familiar with the situation says swingman Sasha Pavlovic will join the injuryriddled New Orleans Hornets under a 10-day contract. The eight-year NBA veteran from Montenegro will sign the deal on Friday, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Thursday because the deal is not yet official.


CLEMSON, S.C. — Former Vanderbilt head coach Robbie NBA Caldwell is joining the ClemMINNEAPOLIS — Kevin son staff as offensive line

coach, taking the spot held by longtime assistant Brad Scott. Coach Dabo Swinney announced the move Wednesday.

NHL Maple Leafs 3, Hurricanes 0 TORONTO — Rookie goaltender James Reimer stopped 27 shots for his first NHL shutout. It was the ninth career NHL appearance for the 22year-old, who appears to have elbowed Jonas Gustavsson out of a job for the time being. Clarke MacArthur, Darryl Boyce and Kris Versteeg scored for Toronto which shut out a team for the first time this season. Coach Ron Wilson said before the game it was an easy decision to start Reimer because he’s been solid every time he’s played. Flyers 3, Predators 2 PHILADELPHIA — Ville Leino scored two goals, including the winner late in the third period. Leino’s second goal came with 3:16 left in the game. He went 360 degrees in front of the net to avoid sliding Nashville forward Martin Erat and beat goalie Anders Lindback with a backhand on the high glove side for the winner. Jeff Carter also scored for the Eastern Conference-leading Flyers in the start of a four-game homestand. Sergei Bobrovsky had 26 saves for the Flyers.

James drops season-high 51 Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. — LeBron James had 51 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists, including a 23-point first quarter, to lead Miami to a 104-100 victory over Orlando on Thursday night. It was a season high for James, whose scoring effort tied for the fifth most points of his career. The Heat exploited a thin Magic front line that was missing injured starting forward Brandon Bass. They led by as many as 23 points. Dwyane Wade added 15 points and Chris Bosh 13. Jameer Nelson led Orlando with 22 points. Dwight Howard had 17 points and 16 rebounds, but only one point after halftime and was just 3 for 13 at the free throw line. Jason Richardson chipped in 16. The victory was the Heat’s fourth straight. The Magic lost for the fourth time in their last six and fell behind 2-1 in the season series with Miami. The Heat led by 16 entering the final period and 90-69 before the Magic went on a 19-4 run, capped by Gilbert Arenas’ 3-pointer to cut the

lead to 94-88 with 1:51 remaining in the game. But James responded with his own trey with the shot clock winding down to give Miami a 97-88 cushion. A missed 3-pointer by Richardson on the other end was rebounded by James, who was fouled and hit one of two free throws. Another 3 by Richardson cut the lead to 9891 with 51.1 seconds left. Nelson hit a layup to trim it to 98-93 and then 99-95 with a pair of free throws with 22.5 to play. Following a pair of free throws by James to make it 103-97, Nelson hit a 3-pointer with 9.4 seconds left. The Heat lost the ball on the ensuing inbounds play, but the Magic were unable to tie it on their next possession. Wade hit a free throw to provide the final margin. The Heat led 55-45 at the half as James picked apart the Magic defense with a combination of mid-range jumpers and runners in the lane. He hit his first 11 shots of the night and finished the half with 29 points. His fast start helped Miami shoot a blistering 58 percent from the field in opening 24 minutes.

Howard had 16 points and Turkoglu 11 to help keep the Magic within striking distance, as James’ teammates combined for just 26 points. Bosh had nine first-half points and Wade had five points, but they were a combined 4 of 11 from the field. James started his scoring spree in the opening 12 minutes, going right at Turkoglu and later Earl Clark when he came in off the bench. He had 23 points the period, hitting all nine of his field goal attempts and going 5 for 6 at the free throw line, as the Heat took a 30-26 lead into the second quarter. The 23 points by James broke Alonzo Mourning’s first-quarter Heat scoring record of 21 points, which he set in 1996. The Magic didn’t help out their thin front line at all, by getting into early foul trouble. Howard needed just 17 seconds to pick up his first whistle of the night and was somewhat timid inside defensively the rest of the period. Ryan Anderson’s hands were AssociAted Press also a little too active early as he was forced to the bench af- Miami’s Lebron James scored a season-high 51 points and ter picking up his second foul grabbed 11 rebounds in a 104-100 win against orlando thursat the 10:07 mark. day.

Statin side effects cause reader unrest The high-or-low decision is back

Dear Dr. Gott: I’m a 72year-old female who has problems with vertigo. It

comes and goes. I get dizzy when I lie down. I’ve had the problem for years and have been to an ear-noseand-throat specialist. He removes wax from both my ears, and that helps for a short while, but it does come back. Can you give me any advice? Dear Reader: Vertigo is the sensation that a person or his or her surroundings are moving or spinning. It differs from dizziness (vertigo, lightheadedness, loss of balance and more). Causes include a decrease in blood flow to the base of the brain, inner-ear inflammation, movement of the head in a specific direction, Meniere’s disease, head trauma, migraine headaches and acoustic neuromas (a type of tumor). Other possibilities can be the result of atherosclerosis, diabetes or, as you seem to be suffering, wax buildup. Speak to your ENT about more frequent wax removal. If this does not help, it may be necessary to make an appointment with a specialist, such as a neurologist, who can perform testing to determine whether there is another cause of your vertigo. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including “Live Longer, Live Better,” “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Diet” and “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook,” which are available at most bookstores or online.

Bob Thaves in his “Frank and Ernest” comic strip said, “Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.” Would she have found it easier in low heels? This week we have been wondering whether to play high or low from the dummy at trick one. In this example, you are in three no-trump. West leads the spade six. What would you do? You start with eight top tricks: one spade (given the lead), three hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. The extra winner can come from clubs. But if you lose a club trick, the opponents might be able to run spades. The key play, since

there are only two spades in the dummy, is to put up dummy’s king. Then, what would you do if the king wins, or if the king loses to East’s potential ace and a

spade comes back? Here, the king wins, so you run the club jack, confident that you will win at least nine tricks via one spade, three hearts, two diamonds and three clubs. West cannot continue spades with effect. If, though, East can take the first trick, you should hold up your spade queen until the third round, then play the ace, king and another club — do not finesse, because you cannot afford to let West win a trick. Finally, note that if you play low from the dummy at trick one, East will put in his jack. If you win, cross to dummy, and take the club finesse, West wins with his queen and cashes four spades. If you duck completely at trick one, East will return the spade nine, establishing the spade suit while West has an entry in the club queen.



Dear Reader: Statin drugs have been a subject of controversy of late. Depending on a patient’s medical condition, physicians prefer total cholesterol levels to be 200 or lower. Unfortunately, using a statin or any other drug to accomplish this could lead to unpleasant consequences, as you have experienced. For instance, muscle pain, headache, diarrhea, constipation, weakness, increased urination, insomnia, liver failure and still more can result. Cholesterol is vital for the normal function of literally every cell in the body. However, when in excess, it contributes to the development of atherosclerosis (plaque formations within the arteries). When plaque blocks arteries, blood flow is reduced to the tissues. When that plaque ruptures, a blood clot

forms, further blocking the artery. When a sufficient reduction occurs, heart attack, angina (chest pain) or stroke results. So statins do play a beneficial role in the big health picture of prevention. Your physician has prescribed numerous drugs in the statin category and you have suffered similar consequences with each of them. You might make an appointment to discuss a trial period of alternative therapy such as weight reduction, exercise, using supplemental B vitamins or niacin, taking over-the-counter cholesterol-lowering drugs with plant stanols and sterols, and modifying your diet by eliminating or substantially reducing butter, whole milk, vegetable oil, eggs, organ meats, cold cuts and cheeses. With his or her permission, give the program a period of a few months, have your blood tested to see if there is any improvement in both your levels and symptoms, and go from there. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “Understanding Cholesterol.” Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order made payable to Newsletter and mailed to Newsletter, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092-0167. Be sure to mention the title or print an order form off my website at


Dear Dr. Gott: I have been taking statins to control my cholesterol. I’ve taken Crestor, Lipitor and simvastatin. Unfortunately, they all seem to cause excessive urinating through the night. I’m tired all the time, and I have m u s c l e cramps. Is there something else apart from a statin that I could take or suggest to my doctor? When do comDR. PETER Iplain, he just GOTT goes to another statin, and none have helped so far. I’m 75 and male.

Weather Underground midday recap for Thursday, February 03, 2011. Another storm will develop in the Southeast on Friday, but this storm will bring little in the way of winter weather. The East will see more rain from this event than any of the recent storms that have swept through the country. Low pressure will begin to strengthen in the South in the early morning hours as moderate to heavy rain falls across the region. West of the Mississippi, precipitation will likely fall as snow sleet or freezing rain, which could cause some serious travel headaches, especially in the overnight and early morning hours. Precipitation in the South will begin to end from west to east in the afternoon as the stormâ ™s center pushes eastward and another area of low pressure begins to develop off the Carolina coast. This low will sap strength from the storm over the land and become the primary weather maker Friday night into Saturday for the East Coast. In the Plains, chilly temperatures will stick around on Friday, with some locations around the Great Lakes expecting highs in the teens. The cold weather throughout the region will be accompanied by clear skies, which will help make things feel a bit warmer as the peak of winter recedes. In the West, conditions will continue to be unseasonably warm from California through much of the Southwest. Along with the warm weather, continued clear skies will make for a great start to the weekend. In the Northwest, temperatures will be more mild, and a storm pushing into coastal Canada will send some rain south into Washington.
