As always, Badin’s fate tied to Alcoa Now-silent smelter remains town’s best shot at renewal Second of two-part series BY KARISSA MINN firstname.lastname@example.org
ADIN — When Badin Mayor Jim Harrison begins to talk about his town, the floodgates open and he can’t hold

back. He’s proud of Badin, the town where his parents met, where he was born and where he spent most of his life. “Once, this was a boomtown,” Harrison said. “It had the largest theater from Richmond to Atlanta.” He talks fondly of Alcoa, the company that was once the town’s largest employer. Its workers made aluminum in a smelter by Badin Lake. But the smelting plant, once powered by the Yadkin Hydroelectric Project, has not produced aluminum in nearly a decade. More than 300 jobs were lost when it closed in 2002. Alcoa sells the electricity generated by the project’s four dams to utility companies, and it is trying to get a new license to continue to operate them. Badin is now a quiet town of about 1,100 people, its history carefully preserved in two small museums. Most of those who are employed now drive elsewhere to work. Harrison says the “key to our success” is getting new business into the town — a goal Alcoa says it shares.
as a resource.” The “Alcoa is evil” phrase came up, she said, as a tongue-in-cheek way to describe their concerns about the company. “There are good corporate citizens and bad corporate citizens,” Hanes said. “Alcoa is a bad corporate citizen.” The e-mail detailed a strategy for the group to fight the company, including building public pressure and using the media to get out its message.
The company is spending $10 million to clean up the Badin Works site, demolish some buildings and renovate those that remain. Alcoa says it hopes to work with local officials to locate another industry at the facility, bringing jobs and revenue back to Badin and Stanly County. “Our goal over a three- to five-year time period is to have more jobs on the Badin site than when it shuttered,” said Alcoa’s Chief Sustainability Officer, Kevin Anton. Alcoa representatives say they have been talking with interested companies since the Badin Works plant shut down in 2002, but the aging facility didn’t meet their needs. “It was in March of 2010 that we made the decision that this was no longer going to be a smelter site,” Anton said. “Perhaps we held out hope a little too long.” Alcoa now plans to demolish several buildings that only a smelter would use and preparing the few that remain for other uses. The company is in the process of clearing out old equipment — giving some to its other operations, selling what it can and scrapping the rest. Anton said interest in the site has picked up in the past three months. “We’ve got four or five fairly active people looking at parts of the site,” Anton said. “I think it would be good for the community if we can bring in two or three significant employers that operate in different business

The massive potroom at the Badin Works smelting plant, top photo, is filled with echoes of its past now that most of the equipment is gone. Badin Mayor Jim Harrison, above, is proud of his hometown and hopes the Alcoa site will once again create jobs for residents. Alcoa donated thousands of historic photographs, right, that show aluminum casting.
Critics see themselves fighting ‘evil’ company BY KARISSA MINN email@example.com
As Alcoa fights to control the Yadkin Hydroelectric Project, its challenges are not only in the legal system but also the court of public opinion. Alcoa says it has the right to own the dams and benefits the community with the money it makes. Many of its opponents say they are taking a stand for the people against an irresponsible corporation. Some go a bit further.
“We need to develop a clear message,” wrote Zoe Hanes, chairwoman of Yadkin Riverkeeper Inc., in an e-mail. “That message is ‘Alcoa is Evil.’” The e-mail was sent in August 2010 to banker Roger Dick and forwarded to several people, including Yadkin Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks, N.C. Secretary of Commerce Keith Crisco and N.C. Sens. Fletcher Hartsell and Stan Bingham. Hanes said in a January interview that in the e-mail, she was summarizing discussion points from a meeting of “people who are interested in the Yadkin River
Settlement in investment scheme may yield new complaints BY SHAVONNE POTTS firstname.lastname@example.org
Mae Carroll met Sammy Biggerstaff about 20 years ago through the Hefner VA Hospital where she worked. After seeing a newspaper article last week about the couple being convicted on charges related to an Internet investment scam, Carroll says she too was misled. Sammy and Sheila Biggerstaff were recently ordered to pay more than $56,000 in restitution and court costs stemming from a 2005 scheme in which people gave the couple thousands of dollars to invest. In 2005, the Biggerstaffs told investors their investment in the PIPS program

could earn interest at a rate of 2.5 percent per day to be compounded daily. The PIPS scheme went under several names including People in Profit Systems, Private Investment Profit System or Pureinvestor and PIPS Financial Services. After Carroll retired from the VA, she was approached by the couple to invest in “an overseas type of venture,” she said. Carroll invested $800 into the PIPs program. She met with the couple on several occasions to discuss the investment. “They showed me this elaborate computer (program) and handouts and a big portfolio,” Carroll said. She admitted she didn’t
fully understand what she saw, but the portfolio and the Biggerstaff’s presentation “looked so impressive.” Carroll said the couple were the most charismatic people she’s ever met. “They sounded like they wanted you to make money. They were very cordial. I had been to their home,” she said. The Biggerstaffs spun Carroll an elaborate tale, but eventually neither Sammy or Sheila Biggerstaff returned phone calls to Carroll so she called others she knew who’d invested. Carroll said the other investors were veterans she knew from the VA Hospital. Many she said don’t want their names associated with the scheme. She’s contacted

many of them, hoping they would seek some type of restitution, as she plans to do. Assistant District Attorney Thom King met with the 11 identified victims in mid2010. King told the victims they had two options, if he tried the case and the couple were convicted the court could order restitution and a payment schedule would’ve been set up through the probation system. The alternative was if the couple accepted a plea, the money would be paid the day the agreement was reached. All 11 victims have received their money. The district attorney’s office dismissed 11 charges of felony obtaining property by

false pretense against Sammy Biggerstaff. Sheila Biggerstaff was given unsupervised probation on four counts of misdemeanor larceny and was ordered to pay court cost and $56,715 restitution. The seven charges of felony obtaining property by false pretense were dismissed by the district attorney’s office. King said he suspected there were other victims. He was only made aware of 11 through law enforcement investigators. He advises anyone who believes they are a victim of the PIPS program Internet scam to contact the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office at 704-2168700 or the Rowan County District Attorney’s Office at

704-797-3010. “I’ve talked to some folks,” he said. “I will collect any names and turn them over to the sheriff’s office.” King said because the case is a criminal matter involving felonies, the statute of limitations has not expired. “Law enforcement will treat it like a new investigation and proceed with it as a new case,” he said. Carroll said she wouldn’t have thought the Biggerstaffs would deceive anyone. “If you met the Biggerstaffs, you would not think there was a scam idea in their heads. It was a perfect scam,” she said.

Located at 202 N. main street, salisbury, the courthouse survived stoneman’s raid toward the end of the Civil War and is considered one of the finest examples of pre-Civil War architecture in North Carolina. today it houses the collections of the nonprofit Rowan museum inc. its second-floor courtroom also has been transformed into a popular public gathering place. Rowan museum inc. was founded in 1953 to collect, preserve, research and educate the public about the history of Rowan County and the piedmont region.

Exercise to African music at the YMCA What a night it was! This past Thursday we had our first African Dance class led by Sakinah Shakoor Riley. Her dad, Abdul Shakoor, friend Jahlove Maa’t, and guest-musician Larry Conner and YMCA High School youth all played African drums and other instruments. A couple of months ago Sakinah came to me after a Bodycombat class and let me ESTER know that she MARSH would love to become an instructor at our YMCA. Our Y is very blessed to have great instructors and a great variety of classes. She gave me her ideas of what she wanted to teach and I jumped at the opportunity. African Dance classes, what a great addition to our programs. I don’t know if it is because I am from a different country, but I love to learn and experience other cultures, especially their music and dances. So, after we met and she got hired she asked if she could have live music. How much fun is that? I am always trying to find different ways to get people moving. And what better month to start a African Dance class than February, Black History Month. Speaking to Abdul, his love for his heritage, the music and dances shows while he is drumming and singing while we dance and exercise. Beating the drums and other instruments takes good listening skills, Abdul said. He loves to teach anyone who is interested, especially the children. By listening they learn to duplicate the
the YmCA offers a new African dance program that mixes a workout with cultural exchange. rhythms and before we knew it they were making music with Abdul while we were dancing. We started with a dance called Nago. It comes from Haiti and this particular dance is a warrior dance. After we were warm and sweaty we did the Waka Waka by Shakira. This song was played at the World Cup in South Africa, followed by Funga Alafia (welcome all). The Bird dance, choreographed by Sakinah, and Ba Na Na Way, a Brazilian Capoeira, which is a type of dance that mix-
es martial arts and dance together. Everyone was able to follow and everyone worked out hard while having a great time. After we showcased our moves with the music the time flew by and it was time to cool down and stretch. All in all, a great workout, a fabulous time and a wonderful cultural learning experience. Exercise is so important as we all know. And for some people “normal” exercise, such as a treadmill, is almost as bad as a root canal for some people. Don’t give up. There are ways
to exercise that you might enjoy, such as African Dance, Zumba, Hip Hop. Or how about Body Combat and Boot Camp? You like the water? Swim, take water exercise classes, find something that you can do to include exercise into your lifestyle. I promise you, you will feel better. Maybe Sakinah and I (as a participant) will see you at our African Dance Class with live music on Thursday at 6:30 p.m., right after our Zumba class in the Multi Purpose room. Ester Marsh, ACSM Cpt

Memorial today for Livingstone professor BY LAURIE D. WILLIS Livingstone College News Service
The Rev. Mignonne E.M. Snipes was known around Livingstone College as a motivator who believed in pushing her students to succeed. She was also known as a person who would do anything she could to help out. Above all, Snipes was known as a woman who feared and loved God and put him first in her life. Snipes died Tuesday. She was 42. “Reverend Snipes was a motivator,” said her friend and colleague the Rev. Dr. Johnnie P. Henderson, assistant professor of religious studies. “She believed in great leadership. She was an initiator. She believed in getting things done and doing things with excellence. She loved these students. She was very well SNIPES loved by the students because she … made sure that they were taken care of.” Snipes, an instructor of religion in the Division of Liberal Arts, had worked at Livingstone College since 1994. She received her bachelor of political science and pre-law from Tuskegee University in 1991 and her master’s of divinity from Hood Theological Seminary in 1997. She also holds a certificate in church administration from Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta. Snipes was an associate minister at Soldiers Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church in Salisbury, where the Rev. Dr. Grant Harrison Jr. is pastor. “She was a very faithful member to the church, and she supported us not only in our local church activities but also in community activities,” Harrison said. “For example, when we hosted the kickoff for Livingstone College’s homecoming parade, she’d reach out to community businesses like Cheerwine

Bimbo the Boxer was our ‘communal’ pooch
morphized themselves in tying their future to that of ours. Bimbo was the kind of dog you don’t see in cities nowadays — I guess he could have been referred to as a “free range” dog. I remember him showing up on our old slate front porch after dinner and he was especially fond of hamburger patties. He would stand there with a hopeful look in his eye and take a patty in one quick gulp, without his teeth even grazing the hand of the giver (which was usually me). He would swallow the burger whole, in a gulp, with no chewing involved. My moth-
er would oftentimes fix several more hamburger patties than needed. I don’t know if this was accidental, or if she wanted to have a handout ready for our frequent four-legged dinner guest. Bimbo was a Boxer, which was appropriate because he often fought other dogs, showing up at dinnertime with facial wounds sometimes in different stages of healing. Despite his dealings with other dogs, he was always gentle with people. He was lean and muscular despite his communal feedings, probably due to his wanderings and fights. Eventually, to the best of my memory, he got into a fight with a pack of dogs and died from his injuries, being buried, I think, somewhere in the woods next to the Cline’s cow pasture. He can still be seen with me in this old black-andwhite snapshot in which he is the true subject and I am only part of the background, steadying him for my brother Joe to take the picture. The expression on Bimbo’s face seems to be saying that he was aware of, and appreciative of his photo being made.
science degree in Exercise Science with a minor in Business from the University of South Carolina-Aiken and his master’s of education degree from the University of South Carolina, Columbia. While a student at USC Aiken, he served as Intramural Coordinating Supervisor. For a year leading up to and following his graduation there, he continued to work as an Exercise Specialist and Coordinator for Special Services. During his time as a graduate student at USC Columbia, Smith served as Director of Academic Enrichment for South Area Residence Life, responsible for providing an effective living and learning community for more than 3,000 student residents. At Catawba, Ben was recognized for two consecutive academic years, in 2007-08
and 2008-09, as College Staff Member of the Year, based on a popular vote of the student body; and he was the recipient of the Paul Fisher Service Award in 2008-09 for his outstanding commitment to volunteerism and service. He served as On-Site Director of Logistics for Catawba’s Study Abroad Program in Costa Rica during the summers of 2006 and 2008, traveling with groups of 50 students for one month, monitoring their well-being, assisting with logistics, weekly excursions and coordinating host family lodging. He is a member of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators and the National Intramural Recreational Sports Association. Married to wife Sabrina, the couple lives in Salisbury.
fearing lady. She put God before everything. She was just real laid back, but she made her presence known when she came in a room. She has left a legacy that will be forever remembered.” Dr. Leroy Simmons, vice president of academic affairs, said Snipes was an asset to Livingstone College’s faculty. “Reverend Mignonne Snipes was a wonderful teacher,” Simmons said. “She was loved by all of her students and she will be sorely missed.” Livingstone President Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins Sr. agreed. “Reverend Snipes was the type of instructor colleges and universities love to have,” Jenkins said. “She was tireless in her efforts and she always put the students first. We were blessed to have her on our campus and are truly saddened by her untimely passing.” Snipes was active in numerous organizations, including the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, National Coalition of 100 Black Women, National Association of Female Executives, Outstanding Young Women of America, Ministers and Lay Association A.M.E. Zion Church, Tuskegee National Alumni Association, Who’s Who Worldwide Registry, Hood Theological Seminary Alumni Association, The National Association of Student Affairs Professionals, Leadership Rowan Alumni Association, Bridges Alumnae Association (UNC-Chapel Hill), American Association of University Women Marquis, Who’s Who of American Women and Summer Institute Alumni (Bryn Mawr). Snipes is also the former Chaplain of the Southwest Region of the Tuskegee National Alumni Association, which includes Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas. Included among her numerous awards are Coalition of 100 Black Women Leadership Award, Trinity A.M.E.

senior religious studies major from Ocean City, Md., couldn’t say enough about Snipes. “Reverend Snipes was one of the most uplifting and encouraging professors at Livingstone College,” Nedab said. “She always took herself out of the equation in her ‘come to Jesus’ meetings with students. She was a patient listener and was non-judgmental, and that’s why students related to her so well.” Nedab, who considered Snipes a mentor, said she was good at helping him and others learn to rely on God. “Under her tutelage I’ve learned to lean and trust in God but also to let go of some of my stubborn ways,” Nedab said. “She brought out the best in me, including hidden talents I didn’t know I had. She was a jewel. I am truly going to miss her. Livingstone College has lost one of its brightest stars, and if I could say one final word to her, it would be thank you.” Reverend Snipes is survived by her parents, the Rev. Johnnie Snipes III and the Rev. Dr. Gloria M. Snipes. A memorial service will be held for her today at Livingstone College at 11 a.m. in Varick Auditorium. Snipes will be laid to rest in Sharon Hill Cemetery in Dover, Del., following a funeral at noon Saturday at Scott A.M.E. Zion Church in Wilmington, Del.
DEAN FROM 3a ing candidate of choice, hands down. He has always been willing to step up to the plate and assume more responsibilities and his promotion will afford him no exception. I look forward to working with him as we wrap up this academic year and make ready for new and returning students next fall.” Well-liked by students, faculty and staff on Catawba’s campus and known as a team player, Smith noted his professional passion is for Student Life. “The best reward of my career thus far is having a direct impact on the development and growth of college students,” Smith said. A native of South Carolina, Smith earned his bachelor of
FUNERAL FROM 3a or Chick-fil-A for in-kind donations to feed the students. She was creative in supporting the church, the college and the community.” Harrison said Snipes was an affiliate member at Soldiers Memorial, which meant she still held membership in her home conference. He has known Snipes since the two were classmates at Hood Theological Seminary. Snipes, the former associate vice president for student affairs and dean of residential life at Livingstone College, was active on campus. “When I first met her I always thought that she was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done on campus,” Henderson said. “She’s a former campus minister. She was very active on campus. She was very committed. She was excited about the committees she was on. She took students to Hood Theological Seminary, Hampton University and other schools to show them options for graduate school. She always wanted the students to strive for excellence.” Jasmine Oliver, 21, a senior psychology major from Germany, credits Snipes with helping her become a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority. “Reverend Snipes was the first soror that I met on campus at Livingstone College,” said Oliver, president of the Alpha Xi chapter of AKA. “She took me under her wing. She wrote a recommendation letter for me, and I feel like without her giving word on who I was I don’t think I’d be an AKA woman today. I was a transfer student from Clinton Junior College, and of course when they’re picking girls for the sorority they normally choose people they know. Reverend Snipes was the only person who would vouch for my character.” Oliver said she also liked Snipes because of her downto-earth personality. “She was real. That’s one thing that everybody can say about Reverend Snipes,” Oliver said. “She was a real God-

owadays, everyone who owns a dog has it in a fenced-in yard or keeps them inside, especially in the city. If the dog leaves the yard, it is always with his owner and on a leash, with the owner’s youngest children sometimes on a leash as well. When I was growing up in Rowan County, we had four-legged MACK WILLIAMS unleashed friends who would drop by the yard or front porch, sometimes on a regular basis. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, our little community on Old Concord Road had our own “communal” dog, named “Bimbo.” He was owned by the Clines, but he visited all of the families in the neighborhood. He was friendly to everyone and received table scraps, although I’m sure that the Clines fed him well. Perhaps, in addition to the extra food, Bimbo may have enjoyed our company. In saying this, I’m not being overly anthropomorphic, because dogs have anthropo-

segments.” After all, this community has seen what can happen when it depends on one employer to survive.
Shared growth The town of Badin once made aluminum, and it was aluminum that made the town. A French company called L’Aluminum Francais began work on a dam and smelting operation on the Yadkin, but the outbreak of World War I caused construction to halt. After that company left, Alcoa took over the smelting operation in 1914. It built four dams to power it between 1917 and 1962. Until its incorporation in 1990, Badin was a company town. Alcoa built it according to the French “garden city” plans, and as the Alcoa’s workforce grew, so did Badin. The company built houses, schools and churches and provided police and fire service for the town. Harrison worked 31 years with Alcoa before retiring. He started out in the potroom before moving to the machine shop and then to purchasing. When it first started up, the company employed around 3,000 people in highpaying jobs. When it received its first license in 1958, Alcoa still employed about 1,000, but the workforce and the town’s population dwindled over the next several decades. Industry became automated, commuting grew easier and jobs began to move overseas. By 2002, the midcentury technology at Badin Works could not compete with newer, larger smelting operations, so Alcoa shut the plant down. “I can’t turn my back on a friend because he’s down and not making money right now,” Harrison said. “Alcoa has been a good corporate citizen.”
Hope survives The mayor said he trusts the company to help revitalize the town’s economy by bringing new business in. Harrison recently met with representatives from a company seriously considering the site. “They love the power capacity, they’re impressed with the infrastructure and they’re impressed Alcoa still owns 11 miles of railway,” he said. Alcoa plans to keep the four 1,200-foot-long, 65-footwide parallel buildings where potroom workers made aluminum in sweltering heat. Temperatures often reached 120 degrees near the smelting equipment. Alumina was extracted from bauxite ore under heat and pressure, then suspended in pots of molten cryolite at nearly 1,800 degrees. An electric current would separate out the molten aluminum, which was transported to another building to be cast into ingots or other products.
It also suggests getting more help from environmental activist Erin Brockovich, who spoke out against the company in June 2010 at an event sponsored by Yadkin Riverkeeper Inc. When asked about the email, Kevin Anton, Alcoa’s new Chief Sustainability Officer said the company wants to “stay above the fray.” In the past several months, Alcoa has begun efforts to Jon C.

But the company says it is Cyanide, arsenic, PCBs and other toxic contaminants have been found in soil and groundwater at or near the site. The mayor said he knows damage has been done but says Alcoa has complied with state and federal environmental officials’ instructions to mitigate it. “We pay DENR to be our watchdog,” Harrison said. “If they say Alcoa should clean it up, they should clean it up. Right now, I understand they’re within their limitations.” He said most of the pollution took place before anyone realized how bad it was. “My father and my wife’s father worked for them then,” he said. “They didn’t know what they had.” Stanly County Commissioner Tony Dennis also grew up in the area and had relatives who worked for Alcoa. He says Alcoa may not have known what it was doing then, but it isn’t doing what it should be now. “They claim they’ve cleaned up the site, but they haven’t and they’re not going to,” Dennis said. “Who’s going to come over on that polluted site?”
working transparently on those issues with state and federal agencies. It also says it has been a “strong supporter of the local community” for a long time. The company helps provide job training in Stanly County, and it partners with state agencies and local law enforcement to promote water safety. Alcoa has donated one million artifacts found at the Hardaway Site in Stanly County to researchers at UNC Chapel Hill. Its foundation also provided a $220,000 grant for the site. The Alcoa Foundation has provided sheriff departments in Stanly, Rowan, Davidson and Montgomery counties with new patrol boats.
The foundation also awarded a $250,000 grant in December 2007 to support economic development efforts in Badin. Badin Mayor Jim Harrison said Alcoa has been a good corporate neighbor. He said he understands environmental concerns, but he’s satisfied that Alcoa is working closely with state and federal agencies to address them. Those who loudly oppose the company are motivated by money, Harrison said. It’s not only Alcoa’s opponents who frame the relicensing debate as a battle between good and evil. “You know the people who are against the relicensing?” Harrison joked. “I like to call them the ‘dark side.’”

Man dies battling out-of-control yard fire FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — North Carolina officials are again warning residents not to do any outside burning as dry, windy conditions are being blamed for fanning the flames of hundreds of wildfires including one that led to a man’s death in Hoke County. The Fayetteville Observer reported that 62-year-old Robert Louis Stephens died Friday when he collapsed and was burned while trying to battle an out-of-control yard fire. It was not clear why Stephens collapsed, but his wife told investigators he had several health issues and had undergone heart surgery in 2006. The state Department of Environment and Natural Resources says 288 wildfires burned nearly 3,000 acres Saturday. Some of those fires continued to burn Sunday. Dozens of homes were evacuated around the state mostly due to smoke and all evacuees had returned home by Sunday afternoon.

CHARLOTTE (AP) — A Mecklenburg County commissioner says he plans to ask prosecutors to look into the release of information from his personnel record when he retired as sheriff. The Charlotte Observer reported Sunday that information about money Jim Pendergraph received when he retired as sheriff in 2007 was released by county manager Harry Jones. The information was released last week following a controversy about a $99,000 payout to the county’s former mental health director when she resigned. Jones says the information on Pendergraph was requested by another commissioner. Pendergraph has been a vocal critic of Jones. In a statement last week, county commissioners concluded that Jones made a mistake by releasing information that was protected by state privacy laws.

Mason was sentenced to life in prison, but prosecutors at the time said he would be eligible for parole in 20 years.

NC gov, GOP resolute on early budget positions RALEIGH (AP) — Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue and the Legislature’s new GOP leaders have identified positions on the state budget process early and both vow they won’t budge. Unlike recent years, when Democrats and a chief executive from the same party have had largely similar goals and sought accommodation, the players in this new relationship between opposing parties sound like they’re drawing lines with permanent markers, rather than in sand. In releasing her $19.9 billion spending plan for the next fiscal year, Perdue said protecting her economic development tools and public education — in particular paying for all classroom teaching positions in the public schools currently funded by the state — were priorities while she closed a $2.4 billion shortfall. “We’ve understood for nearly 100 years in North Carolina that education is fundamental to the future welfare of this state,” Perdue said in unveiling her plan recently. “No governor or Legislature in the history of
North Carolina has walked away from this primary mission. I refuse to be the first and I urge the General Assembly to walk down this path with me.” Republicans say they want to protect public education, but demand less taxes, too. They say they won’t pass a budget that extends a temporary sales tax set to expire June 30. Perdue’s budget would keep threequarters of the penny tax approved in 2009. The GOP would have to find hundreds of millions of dollars more in spending cuts — and potentially more government job losses beyond the 10,000 positions Perdue recommended to eliminate — to make up the difference. “The people understand that what we need to do is to cut spending,” said Senate leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham. “We need to cut spending more than what the governor has proposed, and we intend to move forward with that.” It seems neither Perdue nor Republicans like Berger will back down soon. That could make for negotia-
tions well into the summer, especially if Republicans are unable to persuade a handful of House Democrats to join them to create veto-proof majorities on a final plan. Perdue headed out within hours of rolling out her plan to drum up support outside of Raleigh, visiting newspaper editorial boards and a community college. She scheduled a business round-table today in Wilmington. Republicans believe they have backing from voters who put them in charge of both chambers of the General Assembly for the first time in 141 years. They don’t see a circumstance where they would go back on their promise to let the temporary tax expire. The two sides agree on some tax and spending issues, such as reducing the corporate income tax rate and eliminating nonessential government programs. “The governor shares our view that we need, to the maximum extent possible, minimize the impact on classroom teachers and teachers’ as-
sistants,” said House Speaker Thom Tillis, R-Mecklenburg, but “many of us are convinced that there are a billion dollars in additional cuts that can be made without affecting core services.” Perdue’s office said that without keeping most of the sales tax in place, generating $827 million next year, she would have been forced to raise class sizes and eliminate funds for 12,500 teachers and teaching assistants. But the revenue isn’t dedicated to public education, and cuts could have been made elsewhere. Another Republican, Sen. Pete Brunstetter of Forsyth County, cochairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, suggested putting a box around teachers and teaching assistant positions like Perdue did would prevent scrutiny of the public schools, where 59 percent of statefunded positions reside. Republicans may win allies from local governments displeased with how Perdue’s plan would protect teachers’ jobs at the expense of shifting expenses to them.
Perdue believes she has support on the budget from the public, who will consider her re-election bid next year and often poll well in support of education, even though the GOP says she’s breaking a promise because the entire extra penny on the sales tax wouldn’t expire. So far, one conservative Democrat often mentioned as a potential swing vote says he’s sticking so far with Perdue on the budget. “If you’re going to cut another billion dollars, than some of that will have to come out of education,” said Rep. Jim Crawford, D-Granville. The GOP’s first crack at the budget will come in April when the House rolls out a plan. A governor has never vetoed the final budget bill since North Carolina’s chief executive received veto power in 1997, but it’s still a powerful tool to bring compromise. As Perdue said about upcoming talks with the GOP leaders: “It’s going to be an interesting conversation that I look forward to having with them.”

Profits were down. Layoffs had begun. “I actually had to walk a supervisor out to their car,” McCall says. Still, business went on. McCall came in early, left late and took work home without pause. “I wanted management to know that if I said I can do this, it will get done.” A decade later, McCall had just helped implement a new pay plan when she got a call she remembers as if it were yesterday. “I knew the day they asked

GREENSBORO — Numbers have come to define her desperation. Like three. That’s how many times she’s been laid off since 2002. Or 165 — how many days she’s been without work. She can’t believe 400 — all the resumes she’s sent since January. Which leads to zero — how many interviews she’s had. And then there’s 54. Her age. Meet Donna McCall. Wife. Mother. Statistic. Like 14 million Americans, she’s been downsized. Like one in five area residents, she’s living below the poverty line. How did this former textile supervisor get here? It’s a long story. But then, these days McCall has nothing but time. “I used to call it a train wreck. Hell, it’s a derailment,” she says from a living room chair. “I had the plan — a clear picture of where I was going to be today. But it’s gone. That’s just never going to happen. “I’m lost.” The economy created 36,000 new jobs last month and even if McCall — a heartfelt and headstrong woman — had gotten one of them, it would’ve been too late. The damage has been done. Financially. Emotionally. Psychologically. Her career and credit are shot. Her self-esteem and savings have wasted away. Her identity and idealism are shattered. The only goal in her immediate future is survival. When you’re in debt and desperate for work, this becomes your American Dream. “At this point, I’ll take anything,” admits McCall, who has two grown sons. “I’m resigned to it. I’m doing what I have to do. The passion is gone.” Most days, you can find her at home “living in sweat pants and pajamas,” lighting an occasional smoke, drinking a glass of wine — usually more — and trying to maintain her sanity and contain self-pity while telling herself one thing: “It’s not my fault.” And she waits. For an email. A phone call. A letter. Something. Anything. An acknowledgment that she matters to someone, somewhere. At 46, McCall went back to school — “I cried the first six weeks” — to pursue a degree in hotel and restaurant management. She graduated from GTCC with honors. All for nothing. She’s applied to be a bartender, greeter and even a staffer on a cruise ship. Not that it mattered. “After the first few applications and you don’t hear anything, you begin to feel like you’re cast aside in society,” says McCall, her gaze intense. “You’re just a shell left here to pass away. You lose yourself. You want to feel worth.” The phone rings. McCall has a pretty good idea who it
is — and it’s not an employer. “It’s probably a bill collector.” When your employment is as sporadic as McCall’s, debt collectors become a part of life. It’s a hole she’s been trying to climb out of since 2002 — the first time she was laid off — and it gets deeper each time she’s unemployed. Once McCall had drained her savings, like many who are jobless, she resorted to credit. But it was a trap. It only created more bills. And more debt. Before McCall knew it, she and her 67-year-old husband, who is retired, joined the 20 percent of people in the region living in poverty. Between McCall’s unemployment check and her husband’s Social Security, it’s not enough to cover the basics, much less anything extra. McCall has quit taking certain medications to save money. She wears clothes from Goodwill. She’s trying to squeeze a few more miles out of a car that already has 170,000. She’s let her house — and herself — go. “Anything else that breaks down,” McCall says, “it’ll just be broken.” November 2010. McCall enters a local food bank for the first time. “When I walked into the pantry, I recognized half the people there — my neighbors were volunteers. I sucked it up. Pride has gone by the side.” Time was, she saw herself at this age looking forward to retirement. Now, she tries not to think beyond tomorrow. “You get knocked down so many times, it gets to the point where you can no longer worry about where you’re going to be 10 years from now. “My future is lost. I don’t think I can get that back.” Blue Bell production plant. Several years ago. McCall was a successful salon owner fresh from Blacksburg, Va., with no experience in textiles her first day at Blue Bell, maker of Wrangler jeans. Her job: Operate a machine that put waistbands in pants. Look good doing it. And not freak out. She remembers thinking: “Oh, my God. What am I doing here? I’m making a change. This is for my boys. I can do this. This is for them.” Within two weeks, she was promoted to inspector. After three months, she was a salaried employee who helped oversee shipping and manufacturing. “I loved it,” she says with a smile. “It was a mental challenge, something I hadn’t done before. I walked the floors a lot, and ideas would come to me about how I could make things better. I would take it to management and often, it worked.” By 1992, when a headhunter convinced her to be a quality-control supervisor at another clothing manufacturer, McCall had a realization. “This was what I was going

Mary shares tips on how to slash the high cost of clutter problem, and I’m learning to deal with it. And I’m happy to say I’ve made excellent progress. But this did not happen until I was willing to admit to the high cost of clutter in my life. Disorder creates distractions and confusion. Clutter costs us time, money and, for some, jobs. I have a theory that most of us would be more than willing to let go of the stuff that’s cluttering our homes if we knew these things would serve a worthwhile cause or help someone else. With that in mind, here are those worthwhile causes for
your seven biggest clutter problems: • Vases, baskets, containers and anything else that held flowers you have received. If they’re cracked or broken, no one wants them. But those in like-new condition? Take to the closest flower shop to be recycled. • Excess dishes. If you do not use them at least once each year, sell them to an antique dealer or give them to a local thrift shop or the church’s annual rummage sale. • Pots and pans. Offer them to family members, take them to the thrift shop or see if your church kitchen or camp could
use some decent cookware. • Clothing. Can’t bring yourself to dump your good clothes into a collection bin? Find an organization with specific needs. Crisis pregnancy homes, battered women’s shelters and drug rehab centers are just a few of the places that will be so grateful to get gently-used clothing that their clients can wear to job interviews. Beyond gently worn? Then toss them. Now. • Books. If you’re keeping them for show, give it up. No one is impressed. Go straight to Cash4Books.net. If they’ll buy any, print out the prepaid mail-
ing label and get those books into the mail. If not, donate books to your local library. What they cannot put on the shelves will help raise funds at the next library book sale. • Bibles and church literature. Call a local church or two, and ask if they want them. If not, send them to the thrift shop. • Furniture. Place an ad in your local paper or post your items on CraigsList.org to sell them. If you want to give the stuff away, post on the website FreeCycle.org. Or call up the next fundraiser auction that comes along and ask if they will
Parents say ‘no’ to foreclosed family Dear Miffed: You haven’t said no to your daughter. You have said no to her husband, who according to you is a dangerous character. If he is what you say he is, you should ask that he keep his distance. You have been very clear about the conditions under which you would consider this arrangement, and your daughter can either accept or reject the deal you’re offering. It is your home and your life, and you can certainly dictate whom you intend to share it with. Rather than focusing on her entitlements as a daughter, she should start to think about her responsibilities as a mother. If her husband is the monster you claim he is, then everyone in the family should be working toward one goal: to get their children into a safe, secure and stable environment. Dear Amy: My husband likes to joke about how much I’m eating. He thinks it’s funny and frankly can’t understand why his jokes offend me. I’m in great shape, but really it’s not even about that. Last night he made a joke after analyzing some bills. He said, “Wow, you are voracious!” I’m pregnant with our first child, we are both happy to be parents, but these jokes make
me feel bad. I tried to explain that (like most women) somewhere deep in my soul I worry about my weight, so I don’t want to hear such jokes — especially now when I’m gaining baby weight. Should I eat less just to give him an impression that I’m not voracious?! I don’t think so. But how can I explain to him that such hints and jokes hurt me? — Good Eater Dear Eater: You’ve already explained to your husband how these jokes affect you, and either he doesn’t understand or doesn’t care. I agree that this is insensitive, but I suggest that you let it lie. Let it lie, like a chocolate glazed Dunkin’ Donut. And don’t touch it. If you let it lie and he continues making inappropriate jokes at your expense, you can respond by saying, “Honey, I know it’s scary to have a baby. I have a feeling you’re making jokes because you’re nervous about it. So go ahead and tell me what you’re really thinking. Are you worried about my getting fat? Are you worried about the expense?” Send questions via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N. Michigan

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
McCarthy saw real threats that still exist J
Appalling decisions for Kannapolis I am amazed and appalled! The Sunday Independent Tribune (Feb. 13) has revealed the new name for Kannapolis. “Center City” certainly makes the former “Mill Village” sound important. I was born and raised in the mill village. I am not ashamed that I was born and lived in Kannapolis. I learned to read and write, learned science, geography, “real history” and arithmetic. I did this in a two-story school in a class usually of 33 to 36 (according to what year it was). I was able to graduate even though today’s educators say 18-20 is enough in a classroom. Of course, the loss of the mill (given away by our elected officials) virtually shut down Kannapolis because it was basically built to serve the mill workers who lived in mill houses. David Murdock does not want certain businesses in Kannapolis/Center City. The article in Sunday’s paper (Future Plans for Center City) tells us exactly what Mr. Murdock wants. For example, for beautification purposes, change the Loop Road into a modern urban boulevard, with bicycle lanes and mast arm signals. Also those certain intersections are considered to be the “front porch,” not of Kannapolis, but Center City. After all, we must look good for the visitors. And then, there is art, Ah, yes, art, for we are a civilized people. And while we have no extra money with which to do anything, let us drive from our homes on roads that need paving, jump the pot holes and spend time observing the art. Or, we could consider the entertainment or leisure district. Here again, we can check out the art galleries, live music, restaurants, and other entertainment while our minds are not on leisure things, but how we will pay our bills and keep our homes. Now my question is, where is the money coming from to do all of this? — Marshall Brooks Kannapolis
Perilous times “They know also that in the last days, perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemous, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying the power, therefore from such turn away.” (2 Timothy 3:1-7) Does this sound like the time in which we are living? Man has forgotten God. His word tells us, if we forget him, his mercy will flee. No one has any answer for all the mess this world is in now. The only way out is to get ready, and stay ready, for Jesus’ coming in the clouds. Things are going to happen as never before. World War III is not far down the road. It is bad now, but nothing compared to what is coming. The only way out is, be sorry for your sins, repent, tell Jesus you are sorry, and to come live in your heart. Then turn from your wicked way of living. Live a life as holy as you possibly can. Keep looking for Jesus, and you will go up to meet him and be spared from the wrath to come. — Alma Johnson Salisbury

Let’s honor history by teaching it MICHAEL LEO POMERANZ American Council of Trustees and Alumni
e used to celebrate Washington’s birthday and Lincoln’s birthday: each in February, and each worth celebrating. But now we have a Presidents’ Day — a deliberately vague holiday — that apparently fails to distinguish between Presidents Lincoln and Fillmore. So who’s teaching about presidents? You’d think that higher education in our democracy would lead the way in the sophisticated study of American ideas and institutions. Quite the contrary: American schools have relegated American history to — shall we say it? — the dust bin of history. Presidents’ Day — Washington’s Birthday, if I may — is the perfect time to focus on the role of colleges in teaching American history. According to What Will They Learn? — a national survey of over 700 college general education requireWASHINGTON ments— fewer than 20 percent of schools require a class in U.S. history or government. In a number of our major states, that number is quite lower: 19 percent in New York, 11 percent in Florida, 5 percent in Illinois, 4 percent in Virginia (only James Madison University, of the schools reviewed). Of the 40 schools studied in Pennsylvania, not a single one required American history or government. If not required to study American history, college students are likely to study something else: something narrower or trendier, something that meets at a later hour or is more obviously “relevant” to their 19-yearold perspectives. We send students to college because we think they don’t know everything, and can learn from those who know more. Why do we expect them to know how to create their own curriculum? Every incentive on campus encourages students to deny the thought-provoking and nationally-important classes for the easier, more comfortable, and, if you’ll excuse the phrase, sexier classes. We’ve taken the cafeteria approach to food — offering veggies, pizza, and ice cream without direction — and have that, too often, students go for dessert. We want them to go for civics. Nor is this question merely academic (pun intended). The lack of a rigorous curriculum impacts our students’ knowledge. A survey by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni showed that only a third of grad-
(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)
uating seniors knew who commanded American troops at Yorktown. (Washington did. The one whose birthday is Feb. 22.) So where does that leave us? Benjamin Franklin, after the Constitution was signed, famously proclaimed to a fellow citizen that America is a republic “if you can keep it.” Central to “keeping” our Republic is understanding its government and its history. Colleges should start by requiring students to take a survey class in American history or American government. It’s not enough to know that we have had presidents. Students — college students, especially — should know who they were, how they differed from one another and what characteristics they shared, how the presidency has changed over two centuries, and proposals for changing it further. Such knowledge is part of their birthright as Americans and surely essential to their obligations to govern America in the future. Colleges might look to the University of LINCOLN Texas at Austin. All Longhorns take an introductory and a higher-level course in American government and two further classes in American history. Ultimately responsible for college curricula are trustees, who have the fiduciary responsibility for the financial and academic health of their institutions. Trustees — especially of public schools, appointed by governors — have an obligation to determine whether theirs is a school with an American history requirement and, if not, to require American history or government. They might develop, with the faculty, an exemplary program of their own. If you are an alumnus of such a college or university, write letters to your board and to your alumni association. Tell them you fear for the value of your degree —and for the future of your country. President Jefferson wrote, “[i]f a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” Surely we can’t ignore that presidential caution in regard to the knowledge of history. On this Presidents’ Day, our colleges and universities can do something great for the 44 presidents and for the next 44: they can teach them. • • • Michael Leo Pomeranz is the senior researcher at the American Council of Trustees and Alumni.

Common sense is the knack of seeing things as they are, and doing things as they ought to be done. — C. E. Stowe
oseph McCarthy, the U.S. senator of the early 1950s, is still remembered for two things: Drinking too much and his passionate pursuit of communists that ended up resembling a witch-hunt. Could alcohol and paranoia have led him to devote his career to searching for communists living among us? Thousands suffered from his relentless pursuits. McCarthy, finally exposed, died in disgrace. But the question remained: How could one man, even a U.S. senator, destroy the reputations and livelihoods of so many people? Intrigued by this story, author and investigator M. Stanton Evans wondered if perhaps the truth had become clouded by time. As he began researching McCarthy, Evans discovered errors in major newspapers. A headline in the New York Times of May 2000 stated that, “Oscar Shaftel, Fired after Refusing McCarthy, Dies at 88.” The article stated that Professor Shaftel had refused to cooperate with a Senate Internal Security Subcommittee. (Two errors: these subcommittees, which McCarthy never participated in, only investigate U.S. senators, and McCarthy had never mentioned Shaftel in any investigation.) Sen. Joseph McThe L.A. Times and Carthy: Has the Washington Post both retruth been clouded ported on “Senator Mcby time? Carthy’s House UnAmerican Activities Committee,” although Senators never chair House committees. Even a New York Times crossword puzzle perpetuated this myth (Clue: Senator McCarthy’s group. Answer: HUAC). Virtually no articles from major newspapers, when mentioning McCarthy, were based in fact. Researching newly-declassified FBI records, government documents, and conducting countless interviews, Evans wrote “Blacklisted by History, the Untold Story of Joseph McCarthy and His Fight against America’s Enemies.” Photo-copied documents support McCarthy’s claims: Subversive communists had infiltrated the U.S. government. Facing public exposure, the communists began smearing McCarthy personally. Here’s one example: McCarthy was responsible for “blacklisting” famous Hollywood celebrities as communist sympathizers. Fact: McCarthy only investigated government officials, never private citizens. Furthermore, as it turned out, McCarthy’s “victims” had already been on FBI watch lists. McCarthy had been right; Russian agents had taken U.S. State Department jobs before Russia had been declared our enemy. Successfully smearing McCarthy, a former WWII Marine, was a victory for communism. Even today, as Congressman Peter King (RNY) examines whether radicals within our borders are planning another 9/11 attack, 50 leftist groups are crying “McCarthyism.” Yet not that long ago, Jane Fonda, a key communist sympathizer during the Vietnam War, was honored by an ABC News special as one of the “top 100 women of the century.” You may recall that back in 1972 Fonda visited American prisoners of war in Vietnam. Although American servicemen were being brutally tortured at the hands of the communist North Vietnamese, Fonda reported that the communists were being “humane and lenient.” Later, when surviving POWs returned home and told their stories, she told us to “not hail the POW’s as heroes, because they are hypocrites and liars.” Vietnam veterans literally defined the word honor for an entire generation. Tens of thousands gave their lives, and countless more suffered mental and physical life-altering changes. Yet these unsung heroes returned home to chants of “baby-killer” and “murderer” by a public blindly following the latest news headlines. Another communist victory; and today the entire Vietnam experience is slowly being erased from textbooks. Communists and socialists only make up an estimated 20 percent of the U.S. population. Their strength comes from the ability to make noise. They stage protests and boycotts. They write Congress and sign petitions. They take jobs with major news outlets or teach in schools or accept key government appointments; and they no longer hide. Spending a few hours on the Internet at www.cpusa.org (Communist Party-USA) will reveal not only how far they have come, but how close they are to achieving their goal. They just need the general public to remain silent. • • • Steve Pender lives in Rockwell.

Alarming self-injury videos drawing viewers on YouTube CHICAGO (AP) — YouTube videos on cutting and other self-injury methods are an alarming new trend, attract millions of hits and could serve as a how-to for troubled viewers, a study warns. Many videos show bloody live enactments or graphic photos of people cutting their arms or legs with razors or other sharp objects, the study found. Many also glamorize self-injury and few videos discourage it, the study authors said. They also feature haunting music and rich imagery that may attract young self-injurers and trigger the behavior, especially in those who have just started to self-injure, the authors suggest. Canadian psychologist Stephen Lewis, a study co-author, said he found more than 5,000 YouTube videos on self-injury. The study focused on 100 videos the authors found in December 2009. Their analysis was published online today in Pediatrics. The 100 videos were viewed more than 2 million times and generated many online comments. Parents and mental health professionals should be aware of the YouTube postings and that the videos might be perpetuating the problem, said Lewis, an assistant professor at the University of Guelph in Ontario. The study’s authors also recommended that YouTube provide helpful resources or links when people enter search terms for “self-injury.” A company spokeswoman said YouTube is looking into the feasibility of the suggestion. She said the site has policies against graph-
ic content and content that encourages dangerous activities. It relies on viewers to flag questionable videos, and a YouTube team reviews and removes those in violation of those policies. Self-injury videos are among those that have been removed. Self-injury is most common among young people. Between 14 percent and 24 percent of teens and young adults have engaged in selfinjury at least once, Lewis said. Cutting is among the most common methods. Psychologist Tracy Knight, an associate professor at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Ill., is interviewed in a documentarystyle YouTube video about cutting that has been viewed more than 14,000 times and generated more than 80 comments. Knight said the video was done by a student and he didn’t know it was on YouTube. The video’s opening scenes include a young woman poking a sharp tool into her leg. Knight said such videos may inadvertently trigger self-harm, but that YouTube also can serve a benefit by taking self-injury out of the closet and into the public realm. “It makes it open for social discussion . . . in a way that was not possible when it was secret,” he said. Self-injurers typically are struggling with feelings of anger, sadness, depression or other emotional troubles, and usually don’t cut deep enough to cause major harm, said Barent Walsh, a therapist and author of a book on self-injury treatment. Self-injuring “is oddly effective in reducing emotional distress” in people who have poor coping skills, Walsh said.

Texas poised to allow guns on campuses AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas is preparing to give college students and professors the right to carry guns on campus, adding momentum to a national campaign to open this part of society to firearms. More than half the members of the Texas House have signed on as co-authors of a measure directing universities to allow concealed handguns. The Senate passed a similar bill in 2009 and is expected to do so again. Republican Gov. Rick Perry, who sometimes packs a pistol when he jogs, has said he’s in favor of the idea. Texas has become a prime battleground for the issue because of its gun culture and its size, with 38 public universities and more than 500,000 students. It would become the second state, following Utah, to pass such a broad-based law. Colorado gives colleges the option and several have allowed handguns. Supporters of the legislation argue that gun violence on campuses, such as the mass shootings at Virginia Tech in 2007 and Northern Illinois in 2008, show that the best defense against a gunman is students who can shoot back. “It’s strictly a matter of self-defense,” said state Sen. Jeff Wentworth, R-San Antonio. “I don’t ever want to see repeated on a Texas college campus what happened at Virginia Tech, where some deranged, suicidal madman goes into a building and is able to pick off totally defenseless kids like sitting ducks.”
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Republicans on Sunday upped the pressure on Democrats who fled to Illinois to return home and vote on an anti-union bill, with the governor calling them obstructionists and a GOP lawmaker threatening to convene without them. Gov. Scott Walker said the 14 minority Democrats who left Madison on Thursday were failing to do their jobs by “hiding out” in another state. And Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said his chamber would meet Tuesday to act on non-spending bills and confirm some of the governor’s appointees even if the Democrats don’t show up — a scenario that should outrage their constituents. Senate Democrats acknowledged that the 19 Republicans could pass any item that doesn’t spend state money in their absence.

Government shutdown could harm GOP WASHINGTON (AP) — Few memories haunt Republicans more deeply than the 1995-96 partial shutdown of the federal government, which helped President Bill Clinton reverse his falling fortunes and recast House Republicans as stubborn partisans, not savvy insurgents. Now, as Congress careens toward a budget impasse, government insiders wonder if another shutdown is imminent — and whether Republicans again would suffer the most blame. Leaders of both parties say they are determined to avoid a shutdown. But they have not yielded on the amount of spending cuts they will demand or accept. Meanwhile, shutdown talk is rippling through Washington and beyond. “It’s good for political rhetoric to talk about a government shutdown. But I don’t know anybody that wants that to happen,” Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., said on “Fox News Sunday.” Behind the scenes, Senate officials are spending Congress’ President’s Day recess week poring over the spending proposal passed by the House early Saturday, according to one Democratic leader.

CAIRO (AP) — Security forces loyal to Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi unleashed heavy gunfire Sunday on thousands marching in a rebellious eastern city, cutting down mourners trying to bury victims in a bloody cycle of violence that has killed more than 200 people in the fiercest crackdown on the uprisings in the Arab world. Protests were even reported to have spread to downtown Tripoli and a coastal city only about 45 miles to the west of the capital. In Benghazi, site of the funeral clashes, pro-Gadhafi forces were chased from a presidential compound by other troops sympathetic to the anti-government demonstrators, a witness said. Western countries expressed concern at the rising violence against demonstrators in oil-rich Libya, which is sandwiched between friendly neighbors Egypt and Tunisia — where long-serving leaders were successfully toppled in recent weeks. British Foreign Secretary William Hague said he told Gadhafi’s son, Seif al-Islam, that the country must embark on “dialogue and implement reforms,” the Foreign Office said. In the first-known defection from Gadhafi’s regime, Libya’s representative to the Arab League said he resigned his post to protest his government’s decision to fire on defiant demonstrators in the second-largest city of Benghazi. Also, a major tribe in Libya was reported to have turned against Gadhafi.

Sectional playoffs begin tonight BY MIKE LONDON firstname.lastname@example.org
The record for North Rowan’s opponent in tonight’s first round of the 1A state playoffs isn’t a misprint. Durham’s North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics really will bring a 3-20 record to Spencer at 7 p.m., so its probability of finishing 3-21 is high. Sportswriters can’t calculate that probability, even with the assistance of a computer, but the students at NCSS&M can no doubt do it in their heads. For the record, this will be the first time North (21-5) has ever taken on a team known as the Unicorns. It also should be noted that NCSS&M doesn’t have the worst record among the playoff qualifiers. Currituck charges into the 3A East bracket with a 2-21 mark and is
expected to go down fighting tonight against Rocky Mount. While the Cavaliers had to scrap like crazy the last two games of the YVC tournament to earn the league’s No. 1 seed, they’re still guaranteed only one home game because the YVC’s seeding priority is so miserable. Out of 10 leagues placing schools in the 1A bracket, the YVC ranks 10th in the pecking order. What that means is every time a YVC team faces an equal seed in a sectional, the YVC hits the road. Specifically, it means North could be playing River Mill, in the town of Saxaphaw — that’s somewhere in Alamance County — on Wednesday. That’s what will happen if River Mill beats North Moore tonight. River Mill is a No. 1 seed, albeit a No. 1 seed with an 8-20 record. Obviously,
North Moore (13-10) could win that game, and a North Moore win would keep the Cavaliers at home on Wednesday. Cheer for North Moore. Also lurking in North Rowan’s sectional is Monroe, the defending state champ. If that matchup occurs, North would have to travel to Union County. Other boys games Graham (15-9) at Salisbury (17-6), 7:30 Salisbury assistant Curtis Rich is a Graham native. He was a very good college player at Elon. Hopefully, none of these guys are related to him. Graham guard Justin Cousin is a solid scorer, while Chris Richmond had 16 assists in one game this season.

DURHAM — For a brief while, it Duke 79 looked as if Ga. Tech 57 a brutal week for the nation’s top teams might end with yet another upset — and this time, it was Duke’s turn. Then came a rare “T” on Coach K. Suddenly, the fifth-ranked Blue Devils had the look of a No. 1 team once again — even if they downplayed the significance of possibly reclaiming that ranking following their 79-57 rout of Georgia Tech on Sunday night. “Being No. 1 right now doesn’t matter at all,” guard Nolan Smith said. “Last year’s team, we weren’t No. 1 until the end. If we get it, it’s cool, but if not, we’re not worried about it.” Smith scored 28 points, Kyle Singler added 15 and Ryan Kelly had 10 for the Blue Devils (25-2, 12-1 ACC), and a technical foul on coach Mike Krzyzewski inspired the overwhelming run that carried Duke to its sixth straight win and 10th victory in a row in conference play. The reigning national champions held the top spot in the preseason poll but slipped from that perch after a loss in mid-January. They could return Monday when the new poll is released, after all four teams ahead of the Blue Devils — Kansas, Ohio State, Texas and Pitt — lost in the past week. “I just think we’re a good team, and we’ve just got to keep winning,” Krzyzewski said. “Whatever happens in that, with seeding and all that, will just kind of work out. We just need to take care of our own business and getting better, but it’s that time of the year when people are desperate. “You’re playing desperate people sometimes ... (and) teams that are ranked high, we all get great shots from everyone, and I do think that can make you better before going into the tournament. So I’m not surprised at all these games.” Singler bounced back from his worst game of the season, a 2-point performance against Virginia. His jumper 10 seconds into the second half gave Duke its first double-digit lead, 39-28, and prolonged the run that followed Krzyzewski’s technical foul. “When that happened, it really gave our team energy,” said freshman guard Tyler Thornton, whose foul call precipitated the whistle on Krzyzewski. “That’s really when the game turned around and we started getting more defensive stops and started

driving a car that looked a lot like the one david Pearson drove for the Wood brothers decades ago, trevor Bayne, 20, won the daytona 500.
Trevor who? BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.— Trevor Bayne finally made a mistake. Fortunately for him, it didn’t happen until he missed the turn pulling into Victory Lane at the Daytona 500. The youngest driver to win the Great American Race gave the historic Wood Brothers team its fifth Daytona 500 victory — its first since 1976 with David Pearson — and Bayne did it in a No. 21 Ford that was retrofitted to resemble Pearson’s famed ride. In just his second Sprint Cup start, the 20-yearold Bayne stunned NASCAR’s biggest names with a thrilling overtime win Sunday at Daytona International Speedway, holding off Carl Edwards after fan favorite Dale Earnhardt Jr. crashed in NASCAR’s first attempt at a green-white-checkered flag finish.
“Our first 500, are you kidding me?” said Bayne, who needed directions to Victory Lane. “Wow. This is unbelievable.” Unbelievable, indeed. Just one day after celebrating his 20th birthday and leaving his teenage years behind, the awshucks Tennessean who shaves once a week and considers “Rugrats” his favorite TV show captured the sport’s biggest race. When he found himself at the front, and victory just two laps away, he never thought it would last. Bayne was content just to say he had been leading at the start of the green-white-checkered. “I’m a little bit worried that one of them is going to come after me tonight,” he said. “I’m going to have to sleep with one eye open. That’s why I said I felt a little undeserving. I’m leading, and I’m saying, ‘Who can I push?’”

‘Hammer’ sees comeback by hitters NEW YORK (AP) — Hank Aaron sees hitters regaining superiority over pitchers this season, one that he suspects might end with a World Series between the Red Sox and Giants. Hammerin’ Hank also predicts his Atlanta Braves will have a successful first season under new manager Fredi Gonzalez.
The 77-year-old Aaron was speaking this week to promote a new initiative by Topps, which for its 60th — diamond — anniversary is launching a “Diamond Dig” promotion. One of every six packs of this year’s Topps Series 1 have special code cards, and the buyer can enter the code online and receive a vintage Topps card.

this four-car pileup at daytona involved Jeff Gordon, left, Brian Vickers (83), Marcos Ambrose (9) and david Reutimann (00).
DAYTONA FROM 1B Bayne thought for sure Tony Stewart or someone else would attempt to pass. Nobody did. “We get to turn four, and we were still leading the band,” he said. “It seemed a little bit too easy there at the end.” The rookie had been great throughout Speedweeks, even proving his mettle by pushing four-time champion Jeff Gordon for most of a qualifying race, a performance Bayne said convinced the veterans he could be trusted on the track. “I figured they had a chance after seeing that boy race in the 150s,” said Pearson, who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in May. “I talked to him this morning. I told him to keep his head straight and not to do anything crazy. I told him to stay relaxed.
NBA FROM 1B sists to join Michael Jordan as the only players with a tripledouble in the All-Star game. Amare Stoudemire also scored 29, but Miami’s Dwyane Wade, the MVP of the East’s win last year, had to leave with an ankle injury after scoring 14. Plenty of Hollywood giants were sitting courtside, but Bryant’s popularity here can rival most of them. This week, he became the first athlete to have his handprints and footprints put in concrete outside Hollywood’s famed Grauman’s Chinese Theater.
I’m proud of him.” With the win Bayne breaks Gordon’s mark as the youngest winner in Daytona 500 history. Gordon was 25 when he won in 1997. “I think it’s very cool. Trevor’s a good kid, and I love the Wood Brothers,” Gordon said. “I’m really happy for him. And I think it’s great for the sport. To have a young talent like that — he’s got that spark, you know?” The victory for NASCAR pioneers Leonard and Glen Wood ended a 10-year-losing streak and came the week of the 10th anniversary of Dale Earnhardt’s fatal accident on the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500. This was only the fourth win in the last 20 years for Wood Brothers — NASCAR’s oldest team — which hasn’t run a full Sprint Cup season since 2006 and hit the low point of their 61-year-old existence when they failed to qualify for the 2008 Daytona 500. “When you miss a race, like the Daytona 500, it’s like somebody
He told fans to “enjoy the show” before the tip, and as always he delivered a good one. Always more about focus than fun, Bryant had 21 points by the time Rihanna came out for her halftime performance, putting him halfway to Wilt Chamberlain’s record from 1962, the year of his 100-point game. And when the East made it close in the third quarter, Bryant dunked over a chasing James who was going for the block, then nailed a 3pointer to make it 90-79. Carmelo Anthony scored eight points in his possible goodbye to the West team. The weekend was dominated by talk of a potential trade to New York or New Jersey, and
died,” said Eddie Wood, part of the second generation of Woods now running the team. “When you walk through the garage and you run into people you see every week, they don’t look at you, they don’t know what to say.” The rebuild has been slow, and they got Bayne this year for 17 races, on loaner from Roush-Fenway Racing, the team that snatched him up late last season when Michael Waltrip Racing — which gave Bayne his start in 2009 — couldn’t promise a sponsor for this season. So it was on to Roush, which plans for Bayne to run for the Nationwide Series title this season, and a deal was made to get him some seat time in the Cup Series with the Woods. It wouldn’t be for points, and he wasn’t eligible to run for rookie of the year. But the stunning Daytona 500 win — and the $1,462,563 payday — might change everybody’s plans. The team already said it will now go to Martinsville, the sixth
the Denver Nuggets forward appeared alternately entertained and annoyed by the constant questions. “At times, it can be tough, but it’s fun at the same time,” he said while walking on the magenta carpet before the game. “During this weekend I’m still having fun.” While hearing some of the usual “MVP! MVP! chants he’s usually serenaded with at Staples Center, Bryant tied Bob Pettit’s record for AllStar game honors. He was scoreless for the final 6:48, but Lakers teammate Pau Gasol had a big basket to help the West hold on. The exhibition game had a bit of a finals feel with the presence of a record-tying
race of the season, which had not been on its original schedule. Sunday’s race had a record 74 lead changes among 22 drivers, and a record 16 cautions that wiped out many of the leaders, including Earnhardt Jr. on the first attempt at NASCAR’s version of overtime. It put Bayne out front with a slew of unusual suspects. David Ragan, winless in 147 career starts, was actually leading the field on NASCAR’s first attempt at a green-white-checkered finish. But he was flagged for changing lanes before the starting line, then an accident that collected Earnhardt in the middle of the pack brought out the caution, and Bayne inherited the lead. But he had two-time series champion Stewart, lurking behind with veterans Bobby Labonte, Mark Martin and Kurt Busch, who had collected two previous wins over Speedweeks. All were chomping at the bit for their first Daytona 500 title, but Bayne never blinked.
four players from the rival Celtics. Paul Pierce — who grew up in nearby Inglewood — and Kevin Garnett received the heaviest boos during the starting lineups. Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo were also here from the group that lost Game 7 on this floor last June and would love another chance to come take the title back. East coach Doc Rivers sent his four players out together midway through the first quarter to loud boos that usually provide the soundtrack of June in Los Angeles. They quickly turned to cheers when Ray Allen threw up an airball on his first shot attempt. The crowd of entertainers included Beyonce and Jay-Z,
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The Daytona 500 is on the move. NASCAR and track officials announced Sunday that the Great American Race will be a week later in 2012, allowing the sport to shorten its season and avoid any potential conflicts with the NFL’s Feb. 5th Super Bowl. NASCAR’s 2012 season opener will be Sunday, Feb. 26. The new date allows NASCAR to eliminate a traditional off week following the first three races of the season. It also gets NASCAR ahead of any potential changes to the NFL schedule, including an 18-game schedule or NFL labor strife that might force the Super Bowl in Indianapolis to be delayed a week. “We’re not going to deny the fact that part of this also is in dealing with the NFL,” said Steve O’Donnell of NASCAR. “Who knows where they’ll go with an 18-game schedule. But we want to get ahead of that. “Either way, we think it’s the right thing to do for our season to kick off. The Super Bowl’s certainly a big event, but so’s the Daytona 500. To give fans an opportunity to go to both of those we think is the right move.”= NASCAR officials are anticipating changes to the NFL’s schedule. Whether it’s an 18-game schedule and/or an extra bye week thrown in, they certainly don’t want Speedweeks trying to compete with America’s biggest sporting event, the Super Bowl. They even declined to say that the date for the next Daytona 500 — the fourth Sunday in February — would remain the same in future years. They also stopped short of announcing other races during 2012 Speedweeks, including the exhibition Budweiser Shootout. That could mean NASCAR officials are considering condensing Speedweeks from a two-weekend event spanning 11 days to a weeklong extravaganza. “I’m not prepared to ask for that,” Daytonapresident Joey Chitwood III said. “I like having the Shootout, I like having the ARCA event. It’s a good weekend for our fans.” NASCAR officials don't feel the same about the off weekend early in the season. Drivers and owners have complained that the 36-race season is too long already, insisting there's little need for a bye week in March. "It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that hurts our momentum throughout the season," O'Donnell said. "So by being able to move the date back a week, we close up that off week, NASCAR's able to keep the momentum throughout the season, which we think is great."

Late surge propels Terps past N.C. State BY DAVID GINSBURG Associated Press
COLLEGE PARK , Md. — For 35 minutes, MaryMaryland 87 land couldn’t miss N.C. State 80 from the inside and North Carolina State was connecting from all over the court. “Really, neither team could stop each other, to be completely honest,” Wolfpack forward Scott Wood said. In the end, North Carolina State stopped itself. Jordan Williams scored 26 points, freshman Terrell Stoglin had 25 points and nine assists, and Maryland used a late surge to pull away to an 87-80 victory Sunday night. Senior forward Dino Gregory had
a career-high 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Terrapins, who have won eight straight over the Wolfpack. Maryland (17-10, 6-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) had only two turnovers in the second half and went 19 for 20 at the foul line. But the key was that Williams got scoring help from Gregory, a 6-foot7 forward, and Stoglin, a 6-1 guard. “They have been double teaming Jordan, so when we have other guys that can score it makes us a better team,” said Stoglin, who matched his career high in points. Tracy Smith scored 19, C.J. Leslie had 17 and Wood added 15 for the Wolfpack (14-12, 4-8). The game was tied at 71 before Maryland guard Sean Mosley made a layup, Stoglin sank two free throws
of turnovers, and that just killed us. It came down to a little adversity, and we folded.” Before the game, Maryland honored former standout guard Greivis Vasquez by hanging his No. 21 from the rafters of the arena. The Terrapins could have used someone with his ability to hit a long-range jumper, because Maryland didn’t even attempt a 3-pointer until Mosley clanged one off the rim with 7:24 left. It would be Maryland’s only try from beyond the arc, but it didn’t matter because Williams and Gregory were dominant inside. “At one point I felt like I couldn’t miss a shot,” said Gregory, who went 8 for 14. “The goal looked really big to me. They kept on finding me and

Glen Rice Jr. finished with 12 points on 4-of14 shooting while Shumpert was 4 of 16 for Georgia Tech. “It happened so fast. They got a couple of breakaways and the crowd got into it,” Miller said. “Then we got a couple of silly fouls, and the next thing you know they were up 20.”
The college basketball roundup .... WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — E’Twaun Moore scored a career-high 38 points to lead No. 11 Purdue past No. 2 Ohio State 76-63 on Sunday, capping a week that saw the top four teams in the AP Top 25 lose a game. Moore tied a career high with seven 3-pointers. He surpassed 2,000 points during a flurry of 13 in the final 3:49 of the first half, becoming the fifth player in school history to reach the milestone. JaJuan Johnson added 13 points and six rebounds for Purdue (22-5, 11-3 Big Ten), which avenged an 87-64 loss at Ohio State on Jan. 25. Jared Sullinger scored 25 points and Jon Diebler added 11 for the Buckeyes (25-2, 12-2), who have lost two of three after winning their first 24 games. No. 10 Wisconsin 76, Penn St. 66 MADISON, Wis. — Keaton Nankivil scored 22 points and tied a career-high by hitting all five of his 3-point attempts to lead Wisconsin to its 20th consecutive win coming off a loss. Jon Leuer added 22 points and 10 re-
bounds as the Badgers (20-6, 10-4 Big Ten) reached 20 wins for the eighth time in the last nine seasons after having four 20-win seasons in the first 103 years of the program. The Badgers’ win, coupled with No. 11 Purdue’s upset of No. 2 Ohio State, puts Wisconsin one game behind the Boilermakers and two behind the Buckeyes in the conference race. No. 14 Florida 68, LSU 61 BATON ROUGE, La. — Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton each scored 17 points and Florida moved back into a tie for the overall Southeastern Conference lead. Their fifth consecutive win puts the Gators (21-5, 10-2) in a tie with Alabama with two weeks remaining in the regular season. Walker made three 3-pointers and all four of his free throw attempts. Boynton was 5 of 12 from the field and made six of his seven foul shots. Vernon Macklin added 16 points and seven rebounds for Florida, which played without starting forward Chandler Parsons, who has a thigh bruise. No. 23 Temple 66, Saint Joseph’s 52 PHILADELPHIA — Lavoy Allen had
LOS ANGELES — Carmelo Anthony just wants it over, without saying where he hopes it will end. The season-long trade speculation involving Denver’s All-Star forward is nearing completion, with the deadline for deals arriving Thursday afternoon. Anthony would love a quicker answer. “My mind’s boggled right now about this whole situation,” Anthony said Friday. “I wish I could get this thing over with right now and I wish there was just something that was just on the table that the Nuggets could just say, ‘OK, let’s get it done.’ ” There were reports it was ready to happen, as the Nuggets tried for the third time this season to complete a deal with New Jersey, and that Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov was hoping to meet with Anthony sometime this weekend. Anthony insisted earlier Friday during an NBA Cares community service event there was “no meeting at all” and repeated that claim later during his session with the media. And he didn’t know what he would say if one was scheduled. “If I was to meet with that guy, to be honest I really don’t know what I would say,” Anthony said while taking a break from painting a community center. The Nuggets have looked into trading Anthony since he declined to sign a threeyear contract extension worth nearly $65 million this season. The Nets have been close to a deal twice, and the New York Knicks are considered the other favorite to land Anthony if Denver decides to move him by Thursday afternoon.
BASEBALL SURPRISE, Ariz. — Michael Young had a mes-
sage for his teammates before the AL champion Texas Rangers held their first fullsquad workout. Manager Ron Washington says Young told the team Sunday morning that "he wasn't going to be a distraction." Young, expected to be the team's primary designated hitter and utility infielder, had requested a trade last month. With no deal done, Young reported to camp on time Saturday and said he was focused on getting ready for the season.
NFL ALAMEDA, Calif. — Richard Seymour became the most prominent potential free agent to sign a contract before a possible lockout next month when he finalized a $30 million, two-year deal with the Oakland Raiders on Thursday.
WOMEN’S TENNIS DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Caroline Wozniacki earned her first singles title of 2011, beating an errorprone Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia 6-1, 6-3 in the Dubai Championships final Sunday. The Dane, who will retake the No. 1 ranking from Kim Clijsters on Monday, was never seriously threatened by the 23rd-ranked Kuznetsova.
RODDICK MEMPHIS — — Andy Roddick won the 30th title of his career in his 50th final Sunday, finishing off a thrilling 7-6 (7), 6-7 (11), 7-5 victory over Canadian Milos Raonic in the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships. Roddick polished off the 2-hour, 36-minute match by diving to put his racket on the ball for a winner down the line that broke the 20year-old Raonic for the victory. The top-seeded Roddick becomes the eighth American with at least 30 titles.
12 rebounds and became Temple’s career leader in that category. Allen scored 14 points for the Owls (21-5, 11-2 Atlantic 10) and passed John Baum on the school’s career rebounding list. Baum, Temple’s radio analyst, grabbed 1,042 rebounds in only three seasons. Allen, a 6-foot-9 senior forward, helped the Owls win their eighth straight game overall and ninth straight over their city-rival Hawks (7-19, 2-10). No. 7 Duke 90, Va. Tech 40 (women) DURHAM — Jasmine Thomas scored a season-high 27 points to help No. 7 Duke beat Virginia Tech 90-40 Sunday. Thomas was 10 for 16 from the field and made all five of her 3-point attempts for the Blue Devils (24-3, 10-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who reached double figures in league wins for the 13th consecutive season. Tricia Liston scored a career-high 19 points and Karima Christmas had 12 points as Duke picked up its 22nd consecutive home win. Brittany Gordon scored 10 points to lead the Hokies (11-16, 1-11 ACC), who had a season-high 32 turnovers.

I kept on making my shots.” Maryland trailed 50-45 before Pe’Shon Howard — the current No. 21 on the roster — made two free throws to spark a 14-8 spree that put the Terrapins in front with 13:16 left. After that, neither team led by more than three points until Mosley started Maryland’s decisive run. Wood connected three times from beyond the arc, Leslie scored 11 points and the Wolfpack forced 10 turnovers in going up 40-38 at halftime. The Terrapins led 33-24 before Wood drilled successive 3-pointers during a 14-0 run that gave the Wolfpack their first lead since 3-0. Leslie had two baskets during the surge, which was fueled by five Maryland turnovers.
Buckeyes toppled by Moore’s shooting
DUKE getting out on the break, so that really was the turning point for us.” Duke outscored Georgia Tech 54-22 during the roughly 21 minutes that followed that “T.” By the time Seth Curry hit a free throw to make it 67-40 with 9:12 left, the Blue Devils were well on their way to their NCAA-best 34th straight win at Cameron Indoor Stadium — where Georgia Tech has only won once since 1996. Smith, the ACC leader in scoring and assists, was 10 of 20 with four 3-pointers while reaching the 20-point mark for the league-best 16th time this season. He helped Duke shoot 45 percent — 50 percent in the second half — and win a rematch of last year’s conference championship game and claim a matchup of the ACC’s best and worst shooting teams. Iman Shumpert and Moe Miller had 13 points apiece, but they couldn’t keep the Yellow Jackets (11-15, 3-9) from
and Mosley scored on a drive. After a turnover by North Carolina State, Mosley made a pair of foul shots to make it 79-71 with 3 minutes remaining. “Whoever could stop the other team would win,” Terps coach Gary Williams said. Or, whichever team ended up playing poorly would lose. “We stopped doing the things offensively that were working for us,” Wolfpack coach Sidney Lowe said. “We took some bad shots, and up until that point we had been moving the ball pretty well. Then we started holding the ball and just made some bad decisions.” Said Wood: “It came down to who was going to execute at the end. We took four bad shots and had a couple
Aaron Baddeley raises his putter in triumph after winning on sunday.
Baddeley ends drought Associated Press
The golf roundup ... LOS ANGELES — Aaron Baddeley returned to his old swing and a title he hadn't seen in four years — a PGA Tour winner. In a battle of generations Sunday at Riviera, the 29-year-old Baddeley played mistake-free over the final six holes to hold off Vijay Singh and deny a fairy-tale finish for 51-year-old Fred Couples. Baddeley closed with a 2-under 69 for a one-shot victory over Singh, who turns 48 on Tuesday. It was the third career PGA Tour win for Baddeley, whose game had slipped so much that he had plunged to No. 224 in the world. This isn’t enough to get back into the top 50, but at least he can book a trip to Augusta National in April for the Masters. Singh, who only three weeks ago had fallen out of the top 100 in the world for the first time in more than 21 years, had his highest finish since he won the Deutsche Bank Championship in 2008 on his way to the FedEx Cup. Despite back-to-back bogeys on the back nine, he gave himself a chance to the end and closed with a 69. Singh said it was the best week with the putter in his career, which would include his 2000 Masters victory. He took only 105 putts for the week, including just one threeputt in the second round. Two decades after he last won at Riviera, Couples ran off three
straight birdies to start his round and take the lead, revving up the Riviera gallery. But it all came crashing down with a double bogey on the seventh hole — where Baddeley made a 20-foot birdie putt from the fringe — and Couples never could catch up again. CHAMPIONS NAPLES, Fla. — Bernhard Langer shot a 6-under-par 66 Sunday to set a tournament record with a 20under 196 total and win the ACE Group Classic by four shots. The 53-year-old Langer held a four-stroke lead going into the final round. Fred Funk got within two after Langer bogeyed No. 11, but Langer came right back with birdies on Nos. 12 and 14. He finished with a 5-footer for birdie on No. 18. Funk had a chance to make the final hole a little interesting, but missed a short birdie putt on No. 17 and finished with a 66 for a 16-under total. LPGA PATTAYA, Thailand — Topranked Yani Tseng earned her third tournament win in three weeks Sunday, shooting a 6-under 66 to pull away for a comfortable five-shot victory over Michelle Wie in the LPGA Thailand. Tseng led by one stroke over Wie and I.K. Kim going into the final round of the season-opening LPGA event and had the lowest score of the day with seven birdies and one bogey to finish at 15-under 273. Wie settled for a 70 to finish second in the season-opening LPGA event.
The NHL roundup ... CALGARY, Alberta Rene Bourque scored two goals, Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 39 shots and the Calgary Flames beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-0 Sunday in the Heritage Classic outdoors game at McMahon Stadium. Anton Babchuk had a short-handed goal and Alex Tanguay also scored for the Flames, who became just the second home team in the NHL’s six outdoors games to get a win. Kiprusoff got his fourth shutout of the season. The win moved the Flames past four teams into a tie with Nashville for fifth place in the Western Conference, as 10 points separate third place and 12th. Calgary has earned at least a point in 18 of its last 20 games. Carey Price finished with 33 saves for Montreal. The temperature was about 16 degrees at the start of the game, with winds of 16 miles per hour making it feel like less than 2 degrees. Blackhawks 3, Penguins 2, SO CHICAGO — Patrick Kane scored the only goal in the shootout to lift Chicago. Patrick Sharp and Bryan Bickell scored in regulatioin for the Blackhawks in their third straight game without coach Joel Quenneville, who is recovering from gastrointestinal bleeding caused by an ulcer. Red Wings 2, Wild 1, SO ST. PAUL, Minn. — Todd Bertuzzi scored the clinching goal in the shootout to lift Detroit to its fifth straight win. After Pavel Datsyuk flipped a firstround shot over Niklas Backstrom’s stick, Howard denied Minnesota’s Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Matt Cullen to set up Bertuzzi’s winner. Flyers 4, Rangers 2 NEW YORK — Claude Giroux and Daniel Carcillo scored second-period goals and Philadelphia shook off an early deficit. The Rangers took a 1-0 lead for the first time in eight games when Wojtek Wolski scored with 7:21 left in the first period, but Jeff Carter got the Flyers even later in the frame. Carter and Giroux had a goal and assist each, and Kris Versteeg added an empty-netter in the third period. Capitals 2, Sabres 1 BUFFALO, N.Y. — Marcus Johansson tipped in Mathieu Perreault’s shot midway through the third period to lift slumping Washington past Buffalo.

Transient Global Amnesia an uncommon disorder Dear Dr. Gott: Could you please talk about transient global amnesia? I have never seen this discussed in your column before. Thank you. Dear Reader: Transient global amnesia (TGA) is a rare event that causes sudden, temporary loss of memory. It is often accompanied by repetitive questioning. It is not associated with the more common causes of amnesia such as stroke. For a positive diagnosis, the patient must meet a set of criteria. He or she must retain knowledge of personal identity and have normal cognition (naming familiar objects, following simple instrucDR. PETER tions, etc.); the event must be GOTT verified by a witness; there cannot be a history of active epilepsy, a recent head injury or the presence of seizures during the episode; the event cannot last more than 24 hours; testing and examination will not reveal signs of brain damage; and, finally, the patient must experience a gradual return of memory. Some sufferers may also have a racing heartbeat, cold hands and feet, sweating, trembling, headache, vomiting, nausea, dizziness, chest or neck pain, visual disturbances, flushing or chills, a fear of dying and more. A typical episode lasts about six hours and does not cause lasting damage. Memory of events that happened
during (and occasionally for a few hours prior) typically does not return; however, memory of events that were forgotten before that time is eventually regained. It is important that anyone who witnesses a person develop sudden extreme memory loss call an ambulance or get the sufferer to a hospital immediately, because it is much more likely that a seizure or stroke caused the amnesia. In most cases, a trigger can be found. The most common include physical or emotional stress, such as strenuous physical activity, sudden immersion in hot or cold water and acute emotional distress, like that caused by a conflict or bad news. Certain medical procedures may also be the trigger. The exact cause of TGA is unknown, but there does appear to be a link between it and migraines in some patients. Those at higher risk are those with a history of migraines and those over the age of 50. The condition is temporary and doesn’t cause lasting damage, so it does not require treatment. Because the cause is unknown, there is no way to prevent these episodes. Recurrence is uncommon. Because sudden memory loss is more commonly related to a disorder of the brain, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “Stroke.” Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order payable to Newsletter and mailed to Newsletter, P.O.

It mentioned something used on fingernails as a home remedy. Can you please tell me what this is? Dear Reader: The product you are referring to is nailhardening polish. For the removal of skin tags, it is applied to the lesion once or twice a day. As the coating builds up, it can be pulled off, removing the tag. The process may take up to a week.

Monday, Feb. 21 Although certain commercial prospects may look quite interesting and encouraging for you in the year ahead, be careful about getting involved with friends, especially if it involves financial matters. You may do better with strangers. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Be careful in whom you place your trust, before putting too much stock in what is told to you, especially if it is about a commercial matter. You could end up on the short end of things. Aries (March 21-April 19) — If you find yourself involved in a joint endeavor, be sure each person knows what the assignment is and what part s/he plays. Things could go awry without definite ground rules. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Make sure your actions don’t unnecessarily irritate your coworkers. If you do anything to anger them, you can take bets they’ll try to even the score in some manner. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — If you’re smart, you’ll avoid all types of speculative involvement right now. Lady Luck isn’t likely to be found today, and you’ll not be able to have good fortune without her help. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Do not carry any disagreements between you and your mate outside the confines of your home. Not only would airing them in public make you look bad but it would embarrass your listeners as well. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Wait until another time to accomplish any job that requires the assistance of others. Trying to do something on your own could cause a needless mishap. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Someone you’ve been avoiding might penetrate your defenses when you’re not looking. Deal with this person graciously but keep to yourself whatever it is that s/he wants from you. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Be tolerant if certain disturbing outside influences prevent you from doing what you had intended. Flow with events instead of bucking the odds. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Instead of rushing to get things done, make haste slowly. Unless your involvements are clearly defined, you could paint yourself into a corner with no way out. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Don’t feel compelled to go along with the gang if they’re planning to do something you clearly can’t afford. Even if you keep your costs down, they could decide to split the huge bill equally. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If you try to do something out of spite to get even with a past offender, there are strong indications that you’ll end up stinging yourself more than you do your adversary. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Before putting too much stock in some confidential information that comes to you, check it out. Cross-reference the facts with other sources, because it could be all talk. Know where to look for romance and you’ll find it. The Astro-Graph Matchmaker instantly reveals which signs are romantically perfect for you. Mail $3 to Astro-Graph, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092-0167. United FeatUre Syndicate

When you want to try for game BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate
Mignon McLaughlin, a journalist and author who died in 1983, said, “No one really listens to anyone else, and if you try it for a while you’ll see why.” Luckily, you are reading! Look at the South hand in today’s diagram. He opens one heart and partner raises to two hearts. What should South do now? If South had a minimum opening bid, he would pass. If he held a lot of extra values, he would jump to four hearts. But in this case he is in the middle. True, he has only 15 high-card points, but he has three
Nashville school teaches driving for celebrities NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Nashville is the littleknown capital of the bus touring business, with more than 80 percent of all U.S. touring bus companies leasing their fleets for North American music tours of all genres. So it follows that there is a school in Nashville to teach students how to drive buses for celebrities. The Celebrity Bus Drivers Academy is accepting applications for its April class, the third since Chip Huffman and partner Tandy Rice launched the first-ofits-kind driver’s school in Nashville last year. Huffman, a former celebrity bus company own-
er, said he and his partner want to help licensed charter bus and big-rig drivers break into the notoriously difficult-to-penetrate business. “For 23 years, I ran Nitetrain (a bus company), and I must have fielded 20 calls a month asking, ‘How do I run one of those star buses?’ The answer is you have to have three years of experience. The next question was. They couldn’t get the experience.” The class is designed to give aspiring drivers the inside track on the rules of driving celebrities. There are two key areas of study. The first is how to operate all the extras — the tracking systems, Internet,
electric and sound equipment that are part of the celebrity road experience. “They’re the captain of that bus,” Huffman told The Tennessean newspaper. “If they’re on the road with Carrie Underwood for six months, they don’t necessarily have to know how to fix everything, but they have to know how to take charge of that bus.” The second key component: “We try to teach them how to deal with the music business personality,” Huffman said. “They need to know what to say, what not to say, how to act. Your star doesn’t want a star-struck driver who wants her autograph for his niece.”
aces, two shortage points (one for each doubleton) and good playing potential. He is too strong to pass, but not strong enough to bid game. The key is North’s fit in clubs. Opener rebids three clubs, making what is called a helpsuit game-try. He is asking partner to look specifically at this suit, and if North has either high cards or shortage there, he should bid game — as in today’s deal. North, despite his minimum count, jumps to four hearts with the good club holding and four trumps. West starts with three top spades. South has five losers: two spades, one diamond and two clubs. The first three are unavoidable, but he can ruff those low clubs on the board. Declarer trumps at trick three, cashes the heart ace and queen, plays a club to dummy’s king, returns the club 10 to his ace, ruffs a club with the heart eight, plays a diamond to his ace, trumps the last club with the heart king, ruffs a spade, draws East’s third trump, and claims.

The major winter storm that pounded the Upper Midwest yesterday will provide a significant mix of wintry precipitation to areas from the Upper Midwest through the northern Ohio Valley into the northern Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast this President\'s Day. Several inches of snow are expected to blanket the northern regions, while a mix of snow and sleet along with patchy freezing rain develop in the Mid-Atlantic. Generally light to moderate snow and sleet accumulations of 1 to 4 inches are expected throughout most of the Lower Great Lakes and Northeast. Additional snow accumulations of 6 to 10 inches will be possible in the heavier snow bands that pass through these regions during the early morning hours. Meanwhile, ice accumulations of up to a tenth of an inch are also expected to accompany this system. The majority of snow associated with this storm will exit the East Coast by mid-Monday morning. As this system exits, the Ohio Valley will see another dose of wet weather activity during the latter half of the day. Rain over the area is expected to change into wet snow during the evening before ending. Temperatures in the northeastern quadrant of the nation will remain near the freezing mark Monday. Areas to the south will warm nicely with daytime highs in the 60s and 70s due to the passing of a warm front. In the West, a series of disturbances passing over the Rockies will, supporting more snow showers along the Continental Divide. Meanwhile, a low pressure system will trigger light showers in the Pacific Northwest and the coastal areas of northern California as it approaches the West Coast.
