Charges filed against midwife

A member of the Special Response Team from the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office goes through a scenario involving a potential hostage situation.

Infant’s Jan. 20 death prompted investigation BY SHELLEY SMITH

A Yadkin County woman has been charged with unauthorized practice of midwifery following an investigation into the death of an infant in western Rowan. Emily “Amy” Hyatt Medwin, 56, of East Bend, was arrested on the Rowan County warrant Sunday by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police officers, who also charged her with resisting a public officer after giving false information, a police report said. Medwin was released after posting a $100 secured bond. She could MEDWIN not be reached for comment Thursday. According to a Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report, officials at Rowan Regional Medical Center reported an infant death on Jan. 20. A detective learned the child had been born at a Sherrills Ford Road home. The child was dead at birth. Detectives found that Medwin had given prenatal care to the family several times during the pregnancy, and that Medwin is not licensed to practice in JON C. LAKEY/SALISBURY POST


Sgt. Jason Owens of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team guards stairs during a monthly training exercise. he Rowan County Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team is called into action in the most dangerous situations — standoffs, hostage takings, drug raids. So team members have to be well trained. The Special Response Team recently used a vacant house on South Main Street to run through multiple scenarios. Rifles leveled, they climbed stairs and cleared the building floor by floor, room by room. Each team member has a job to do. But even as they perform those individual duties, they move and work as a unit. They take this training seriously. Because when it’s real, they have to be ready.

Effort fails in Spencer to halt revaluation BY KARISSA MINN

administrative offices for the Rowan-Salisbury School System. The church proposed selling its Webb Road property at a price between $4.5 million and $5.5 million and offered the school system favorable, no-interest financing over the early years of a loan.

SPENCER — Only one Spencer alderman supported asking Rowan County commissioners to delay revaluation Thursday. At a called meeting of the Spencer Board of Aldermen, Alderwoman Delaine Fowler’s motion to approve the resolution died when no one gave a second. “ I asked the mayor to call this meeting after talking to some of our citizens,” Fowler said. “ I felt that we just needed to discuss it so we could give our citizens a voice.” The Salisbury City Council passed the same resolution last week. At that time, Carl Ford, vice chairman of the Rowan County Board of Commissioners, told the Post he didn’t think commissioners could stop the process even if they wanted to. During the meeting Thursday, Mayor Jody Everhart said some were concerned about how revaluation would affect low-income residents. An increase in value would mean an increase in tax-



Cornerstone Church buys land along I-85 Thursday. A week ago, the church bought 45.88 acres along Interstate 85 at N.C. 152 and U.S. 29.

Inspections, evictions top list of concerns at forum on housing BY EMILY FORD

But Gene Miller, assistant superintendent for operations for the school system, said Thursday any purchase of the church property won’t be happening soon. “It’s still a possibility, but it's not feasible right now because of the money situation,” he said. Miller said he talked with Godair about the property last month at a Chamber of Commerce legislative breakfast. “I said it’s something we would consider at the right time, if that right time ever gets here,” he said. “Right now, we don’t have any money to do anything.” Meanwhile, with its purchase of the I-85 tracts, Cornerstone has several options: It could keep both the Webb Road and I-85 properties, sell the current campus and build a new home on the I-85 site, or resell all or part of the I-85 site. “Who knows what’s going to happen?” Godair said. He noted the church already has put signs on the I85 site tabbing it as the future home of Cornerstone Church. The land carries no structures, and it will be affected by the future widening of I-85. But Godair said the widening should increase the value and convenience of the site. It will include a new ramp immediately next to part of the property, he said. The church has 1,000 feet

andy mooney/SALISBURY POST

of I-85 frontage on one side and 3,000 feet on the other, Godair said. He also likes that the new site would be part of China Grove, with water and sewer services already available. It is centrally located between Salisbury and Kannapolis/ Concord, and his congregation seems to be evenly divided between members of both areas, Godair said. The property was “an unbelieveable deal” that the church could not pass up, he added. In 2010, Cornerstone experienced what Godair called “a record-breaking year” for attendance, averaging 794 people each Sunday. Services this year have seen more than 800 people each Sunday, he said. Godair said the I-85 land could be home for an even bigger Events Center in the future, depending on what happens with the other church properties and whether such a facility is needed.

Center City plans may shape Kannapolis’ future Some residents like proposals, but developers question design BY HUGH FISHER

KANNAPOLIS — The draft Kannapolis Center City Master Plan presented to local leaders earlier this month is generating feedback from residents. The proposed plan contains 35 recommendations for improvements in transportation, land use, economic development and the overall quality of the community. Some of the recommendations are cosmetic, such as the

Lowered speed limits for Loop Road, preserving downtown’s trees and adding signs to help visitors find their way are also on the list. One new project on the list for possible construction is a covered shelter for the downtown farmers market, which could also be used for Village Fest and other events. Irene Sacks, Kannapolis’ director of business and community affairs, said she was

pleased with the turnout. Nineteen people came to the drop-in public information session during the first hour. “I think this is great,” Sacks said of the turnout. “Ninety-nine percent of the plan, they say, is good,” Warren said. The possible city market building especially generated positive buzz, he said. Public comment forms were available so that people could enter whatever feedback they would like to share as part of the record. Also, staff members were there to answer questions and listen to what residents had to say. Brian Coone, a local resident, came to the session with

his mother, Donna. Donna owns property on North Juniper Street. She said she hoped to see the city do something to better enforce ordinances about signs and the appearance of properties. Brian agreed. “I hope anything they can do will get the ball rolling and turn it around,” he said. Already, the possibility of zoning changes is shaping up as a potential problem. The plan envisions an area on the west side of downtown, currently filled with older houses, as a “residential village.” But a number of those houses on the perimeter of the SubMiTTed renderinG

Math work adds up to victory

A Rushco employee was arrested just before she clocked into work Wednesday. Vicky Lynn Madison, 52, of 703 Victory St., Salisbury, was charged with felony embezzlement with property received by virtue of office or employment and MADISON was given a $1,000 secured bond. According to Salisbury Police, Madison, a cashier at Rushco No. 16, 1518 E. Innes St., had been embezzling money from the cash register between Jan. 9 and Feb. 20. An internal investigation found that Madison would ring up an order, take the payment, but then void the sale and pocket the cash, police said. As of Wednesday, authorities said Madison had taken approximately $500 from 67 transactions.

Air ambulance stationed at Concord CONCORD — MedCenter Air, the regional flight service for critically ill or injured patients operated by Carolinas HealthCare System, has moved one of its helicopter units to Concord Regional Airport. The move, from CharlotteDouglas International Airport, is part of a planned effort to disperse helicopters to provide faster service for the transport of injured and sick patients, and a collaborative partnership with Cabarrus County Emergency Medical Services. Two other helicopters operated by MedCenter Air are stationed at the airport in Hickory near the BurkeCaldwell County line, and at the airport in Rock Hill, S.C. The EC-135 helicopter, which can transport up to two patients on stretchers along with a three-person crew, moved to the Concord airport this month with flight crews on duty 24 hours a day.

Land preservation pays off 4-to-1, according to study RALEIGH (AP) — A study commissioned by environmental groups says every dollar spent on land and water conservation in North Carolina returns $4 worth of natural resources to the state. The study released Wednesday by the conservation coalition Land for Tomorrow found that North Carolina spent an average of about $73 million each of the past 10 years to acquire or protect 289,000 acres of wetlands, forests and farmland. The analysis was conducted by the national nonprofit Trust for Public Land.

PLANS FROM 3a center city are currently being used as businesses. And much of the land is owned by investors, some of whom plan to eventually develop it for businesses. One of those is Richard McGuire, who runs a property company and owns a mix of rental homes and commercial properties. Several of these face onto Dale Earnhardt Boulevard. “They’re talking about changing the zoning to residential,” he said. “What we’d like to do is develop it.” “I’ve had people call me about putting businesses here. And were paying property tax on commercial property, and they’re going to zone us residential.” He says he’ll fight any zoning change. “There’s so much else they ought to be doing” rather than changing zoning, he said.

The figures did not take into account how land and water conservation also stimulates the economy through job creation, taxes, tourism and other means, said Reid Wilson, director of the Conservation Trust for North Carolina. “The state faces a pretty severe budget crisis, and the point we are trying to make with the study is that it is important for the state to keep investing in these funds because they provide tangible economic benefits to the state,” Wilson said. The state’s four conservation trust

David Miller of American Property Managers said that it’s a difficult situation. His company also manages properties in the area. Miller is also president of the Kannapolis Business Alliance, a recently formed coalition of local business owners. Members of that organization got a presentation on the plan on Feb. 17. He said those homes along Dale Earnhardt Boulevard can be tough to rent as residences, he said. “People like the property, but the busy streets are a concern,” Miller said of homes in the same area. Meanwhile, businesses need visibility that Dale Earnhardt Boulevard provides. The concern is that any change that keeps businesses from being located there could cause property values to drop “People paid top dollar for it, going along with the idea that this was ‘center city’ and they could put their business

funds already have suffered from the lagging economy. The Clean Water Management Trust Fund and the Farmland Preservation Trust Fund are both dependent on legislative appropriations. Originally established in 1996 with a $100 million annual allocation, the Clean Water fund was drained by the governor in 2009 to fill budget gaps. The following year it was reinstated at half the original amount, Reid said. The Farmland Preservation Fund has been cut from $8 million to $2 million per year.

there,” he said. “There are people who don’t want to be a part” of the residential village plan, Miller told Planning Director Ben Warren. Warren listened to Miller’s concerns and those of others who came to see artists’ renderings of proposed changes and details of the plan. Sacks said there will be more chances for residents to give their feedback. The master plan is posted online at Visitors should scroll down on the main page to find the master plan link. “We’re also working on an online survey that will be available, so if they didn’t get a chance to come out, they’ll be able to give their input,” Sacks said. Once the public comment phase is over, the document will return to the Kannapolis Planning Commission for discussion, possible changes and an eventual vote. The Kannapolis City Council will then take up the mas-

ter plan and may recommend further changes before adopting it as a policy. Donna Coone said she would like to see this plan result in immediate changes that would beautify the city and draw more people back to downtown. “We’ve had so many businesses leave,” she said. “Anything that would revitalize the area would be great.

Public meeting planned for road projects The N.C. Department of Transportation will hold an informational meeting on Tuesday regarding innovative interchange designs to be included in three Charlotte-area projects: the final section of the Interstate 485 Outer Loop, the reconstruction of the I-485/Interstate 85 interchange and the widening of I-85 from Mecklenburg County into Cabarrus County. The meeting will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Hickory Grove Baptist Church-North Campus, located at 2350 Odell School Road in Charlotte. NCDOT representatives will be available to explain the design changes and provide project information. All three I-485/I-85 improvement projects will feature interchange designs being used for the first time in North Carolina. Detailed information about each interchange, including diagrams of how they work, can be found at These interchanges will help move more traffic more quickly, improve safety and significantly reduce costs.

The new interchange designs include: • Diverging Diamond Interchange: Both the final leg of I-485 and the I-85 widening project will include an innovative interchange design known as the “diverging diamond.” This type of interchange improves turning movements at interchange ramps that carry a high volume of vehicles, and is unusual in that it requires traffic to cross to the opposite side of the road and back as it passes over the interstate. Studies show the interchange improves traffic flow, enhances safety and reduces driver confusion. It also requires less right of way than other interchanges. Diverging diamonds will be constructed at the future I-485/Mallard Creek Road intersection and at the I-85 interchanges with Poplar Tent Road and N.C. 73. • Turbine Interchange: The I-485/I-85 interchange will be converted into a turbine design that circles all left-turning traffic around a central bridge in a clockwise direction. The turbine interchange costs significantly less to construct than other types of interchanges, requires less right of way, will reduce

Bill would remove cap on charter schools RALEIGH (AP) — A Senate bill to end North Carolina’s limit of 100 charter schools is heading to the House. The Senate gave final approval Thursday to the measure with little debate following Wednesday’s robust discussion and initial vote. Thursday’s 33-17 margin reflects the lack of support by most Democrats who are worried about other details beyond eliminating the cap that’s been in place since charter schools began in the state in the mid-1990s. The bill would create a new commission to approve and revoke charters for the alternative public schools. The State Board of Education could still veto the commission’s decisions. Republicans who made eliminating the limit a campaign platform say the legislation will create new opportunities for all types of students.

Duke ends lawsuit over Lacrosse case GREENSBORO (AP) — Duke University has ended a lawsuit against an insurance company stemming from the three lacrosse players at the school who were falsely accused of rape. Documents filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Greensboro show Duke and the National Union Fire Insurance Co. have agreed to drop all claims and counterclaims in the case. Each side also agrees to pay its own legal costs. Further information about the agreement hasn’t been made public. Duke had sued in 2008, saying the insurer wouldn’t cover the costs of the university’s out-of-court settlement with the three players. The insurance company responded that Duke didn’t tell the company about the settlement, in violation of its contract.



a Cleveland woman whose car slid into a four-foot ditch on Sherrills Ford road thursday morning was being treated in the emergency room at Wake Forest university Medical Center thursday night. N.C. trooper E.b. Perdue responded and said the driver, Catherine Hagen Culbertson, 46, told him she didn’t remember what happened, and suffered minor injuries. She was initially taken to rowan regional Medical Center, but later transferred. a witness said Culbertson was heading east on Sherrills Ford road, then ran off the right shoulder of the road, overcorrected, and slid across the westbound land and into a ditch. Perdue said the wet roads contributed to the crash.

impacts to traffic during construction and will cost less to maintain. • Split Diamond Interchange: A split diamond interchange will be constructed at the future I-485/Prosperity Church Road intersection. Under this design, an exit ramp at the interchange will take traffic off I-485, an on-ramp will carry traffic onto I-485 and a one-way service road will connect the two ramps. The interchange also includes six roundabouts. This design was presented at previous public meetings, but will be a new concept here in North Carolina. Another design change is converting N.C. 73 and Poplar Tent Road into a superstreet design. A superstreet redirects through and left-turning traffic from the side street to turn right, proceed to a nearby U-turn and then return to its original course. It offers a safe and simple solution to congestion. There are currently more than a dozen superstreets in North Carolina. NCDOT has taken steps to coordinate construction work on these three projects to help save money and speed up completion.

CBS, Warner pull plug on ‘Two and a Half Men’

emily ford/saLisBUrY post

almeader Holt places a dot next to an issue she considers important thursday during the public forum on housing at city Hall.



Check it, Alex: I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his unevolved mind cannot process,” Sheen said. “Last I checked, Chaim, I spent close to the last decade effortlessly and magically converting your tin cans into pure gold. And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write,” he said. Lorre, who was born Charles Levine, is a veteran producer whose hits include “The Big Bang Theory,” “Dharma & Greg” and “Cybill.” Speaking of himself, Sheen said he has “magic and poetry in my fingertips, most of the time.”

Karen Young considers a list of housing concerns generated during a brainstorming session thursday. Many of these issues have been discussed for years, said Lou Manning, a landlord, neighborhood advocate and co-chairman for the advisory committee. The committee will reach consensus on several concerns, Manning said. “We are very close on some items already,” he said. Manning’s counterpart, cochairman Nathan Chambers who owns Chambers Realty, said the committee agrees Salisbury needs more education surrounding housing issues but it will not reach consensus on inspections or a certificate of occupancy program. The committee has struggled to find common ground. The same facilitator who led Thursday’s public forum, Glenn Harbeck of Wilmington, will facilitate the next two committee meetings to help the process along, Morris said. Once the committee makes recommendations to City Council, residents will have another chance to comment

before Council takes action. Landlords Jeff Littleton and Dick Palmore, who own 62 properties, said they will oppose inspections. Even a nominal inspection fee of $50 per unit annually would cost them more than $3,000 each year, they said. Only negligent landlords should have to undergo inspections and pay fees, they said. The city must inspect all older rental property initially, Pitner said. After that, landlords who keep their property in good condition could earn longer periods between inspections, he said. Inspections also should differentiate between health hazards and cosmetic problems, Pitner said. Plumbing issues are more serious than peeling paint, he said. The advisory committee’s next meeting date has not been set. Contact reporter Emily Ford at 704-797-4264.

North Carolina. Details of what caused the infant’s death were not available Thursday, but Medwin admitted to authorities that she did not have a license to practice midwifery in North Carolina, only in Virginia, the report said. Authorities said this is the second time Medwin has been charged with unauthorized practice of midwifery. But Victoria Brown, governor of North Carolina Friends of Midwives, said the organization supports Medwin. Medwin is a certified practicing midwife, Brown said. That certification is accepted in many states, but North Carolina is not among them. This state currently allows only certified nurse midwives, who must attend nursing school, to practice. Brown said her organization is pushing legislation to change North Carolina law. “We are trying to make sure that this is legal in this state so they can practice without fear of being prosecuted,” Brown said. “It is a public health issue that women who choose to have a home birth should have the right to a licensed midwife. “We support Amy and we are pursuing this legislation so that this will not happen again,” Brown said.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — In the wake of an incendiary radio interview with “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen, CBS and Warner Bros. Television said they are ending production on TV’s top-rated sitcom for the season. The decision was based on the “totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition,” the companies said in a joint statement Thursday. The show’s future was not addressed. Production had been suspended in January to allow Sheen to seek rehabilitation. Earlier Thursday, Warner and Sheen’s publicist, Stan Rosenfield, said the series would resume taping next week with Sheen. That was before the 45-year-old actor’s rambling, often vitriolic radio interview with host Alex Jones in which Sheen blasted “Two and a Half Men” producer Chuck Lorre and others, including Alcoholics Anonymous. The abrupt decision to pull the plug on additional episodes of the lucrative sitcom came after Sheen’s increasingly erratic behavior, including an earlier interview in which he claimed he had sought to return to work but was barred by producers. In his interview with Jones, Sheen repeatedly evoked violent images and ideas. He also derided Lorre in an attack that suggested anti-Semitism. “There’s something this side of deplorable that a certain Chaim Levine — yeah, that’s Chuck’s real name — mistook this rock star for his own selfish exit strategy, bro.

What Cooperative Extension does for you Agents tell citizens everything they know North Carolina Cooperative Extension has provided unbiased research-based information to Rowan County citizens for nearly 100 years. The organization seeks to empower citizens with the opportunity to gain knowledge and provide solutions. Cooperative Extension in Rowan County is under the auspices of N.C. State and N.C. A&T with DARRELL Rowan County BLACKWELDER government and the U.S. Department of Agriculture as funding partners. Cooperative Extension provides educational programming and information in all aspects of agricultural production, youth programming, health, wellness, family and consumer issues and rural development. A major strength of Cooperative Extension is its broad volunteer base and community support. Extension advisory council members provide agents critical information for tailoring relevant educational information, events and programs. Extension volunteers are an invaluable resource, working countless hours assisting agents with youth agriculture and specialty programs, adult educational programs as well as booths, displays and program facilitators.

Livestock agent Brad Johnson works with sheep that will be exhibited. Cooperative Extension agents and staff, bottom row, from left, Connie Holshouser, Darrell Blackwelder, Melva Menius; back, Brad Johnson, Sara Drake, Judy Branson, Toi Degree, Robert Neely.

Volunteers make the difference with hours of help Cooperative Extension uses well trained personnel and university research-based information to make positive impacts by empowering citizens and providing solutions. But these efforts would be miniscule without the hundreds of hours donated by volunteers. Extension volunteers are the backbone of Cooperative Extension in Rowan County. Two major volunteer groups are especially important: the Extension Advisory Council members and Extension Program Volunteers (Master Gardeners, 4-H volunteers and Extension Community Association members, parents, etc.). Advisory members consisting of growers, parents, school personnel, homemakers, former 4-Hers, bankers,

• 983 farms in Rowan County; • 115,942 acres now in farming; • 35 percent of land mass in Rowan County is some type of farming operation; • 118 acres is the average size of a farm; state average

Our mission statement North Carolina Cooperative Extension is an educational partnership helping people put research-based knowledge to work for economic prosperity, environmental stewardship and an improved quality of life.

Agriculture = $62 million Agriculture in Rowan County provides a major economic impact producing more than $62 million in revenues. Rowan County producers have more than 116,000 acres in traditional agricultural crops. Farmers markets are growing with increased interest in the local food movement. Rowan County now has three viable farmers markets. The Salisbury Farmer’s Market has expanded to offer WIC, Senior and SNAP (food stamp) vouchers to eligible participants. The Master Gardener Volunteer program provides a wealth of urban gardening information to home gardeners and homeowners in Rowan County. Rowan County dairy and livestock producers receive pertinent information with feeding, selection and herd management.

See KNOW, 9A

Toi Degree, left, teaches children about canning.

By the numbers: Agency serves youth, parents, homeowners, farmers and local business Master Gardener volunteers give children information on planting. etc. help Cooperative Extension determine the needs of its citizens. Using questionnaires, environmental scans and other information, council members help agents determine the needs of the county, tailoring programming efforts for its citizens. Program volunteers devote hun-

dreds of hours teaching students, working in booths and displays, running errands, mentoring students, writing newsletters, chaperoning, answering phones; helping wherever there is a need. These unselfish volunteers allow Cooperative Extension the opportunity to make a difference.

Top crops: hay and soybeans Even though Rowan County is technically an urban county, its roots are in traditional agriculture. It’s a $62 million industry with small grains, corn, field crops and animal agriculture as its agricultural backbone. Below are a few Rowan County agricultural statistics:

Local businesses are also supportive and critical for ongoing educational programs, sponsorships and grants. Cooperative Extension’s broad volunteer base sustains and creates a positive impact in Rowan County.

Q: I have a question about what the proper humidity should be in our home. I have several thermo-hygrometers in our house. Our home doesn’t feel too dry in the winter. We have a portable humidifier in our bedroom just to add a little moisture during the winter, and we enjoy the soothing hum of it. Our house stays anywhere from 30 percent to 40 percent in the coldest part of winter. Is that OK? Also, I’ve had a heating and air company out to get a quote on installing a humidifier on the gas furnace. They told me that the space around our furnace wouldn’t accommodate a regular humidifier, but they recommended a steam humidifier due to the smaller size of the unit. What is your take on a steam humidifier? A: It would be difficult to raise indoor humidity levels above 40 percent when the room temperature is around 68 degrees of mechanically heated air. The warmer the

air, the more moisture the air can hold, and 68 degrees may feel warm, but it’s not like summertime temperatures. If you can remember the 90-degree summer days, you know that there is also a corresponding high humidity level, because the warmer air holds moisture. What I have been told over the years is that the preferred wintertime level inside the home should be anywhere from 40 percent to 70 percent relative humidity at 68 degrees when the outside temperature is 30 degrees or less. Indoor humidity levels beyond 70 percent create an environment in which mold spores can gain a foothold in your home. Fortunately, the air conditioner dehumidifies and cools the air at the same time. It has been my experience that humidifiers connected to ductwork present the possibilities for rust or corrosion that can damage either the ductwork or the furnace. Proper maintenance can prevent this type of problem from occurring. I encourage my clients to

add humidity by using inroom steam-producing humidifiers or vaporizers. Remember to shut off the humidifier in the summer so that the air conditioner is not overworked as it removes moisture from the air.

Often in this space I’ve talked about how to cover windows with draperies, shutters, blinds or other privacy/sun-blocking devices. But never have I talked about electric privacy glass. Well, I did mention it many years ago when the product was pretty new, but a deeper explanation is now required since this electric glass is gaining popularity. What is it, anyway? Well, first of all, it is glass, just like the glass windows in your house. You can see out and those who are outside can see in. What makes it different is that with the flip of a switch, the glass changes from clear to translucent, offering privacy while still allowing the light in. How does it work? The secret is in the layers. First, there is an outer layer of glass or polycarbonate, then an adhesive interlayer followed by liquid-crystal film. Then there is another adhesive interlayer and, finally, another outer layer of glass or polycarbonate. Sounds complicated, so let’s delve into this a little more. It is the liquid-crystal film that affords the transition between clear and translucent. This same technology has been used in digital watches and computer screens for years. Liquid crystals are sandwiched between two layers of transparent conductive film to make the privacy film. That film is laminated between the two pieces of glass by the glass manufacturer. When electricity is applied to the film at the flick of a switch, the liquid crystals line up and the window is clear. When the power is turned off, the liquid crystals return to their normal positions and turn the glass from clear to frosted. The dispersed liquid crystals were invented at Kent State University back in 1983. But it wasn’t until a joint ven-

glass can fit the bill. inquiries, write to Rosemary There are many websites at that will provide you with visuals on privacy glass, and some sites even allow for price quotes without any obligation, if you are interested in pursuing this. Simply type in “privacy glass” or “smart glass” in a search engine and get ready to be inundated with information.

ture was made between 3M Company and Viracon that the liquid-crystal film was actually put together between two panes of glass to become a usable form now called privacy glass. It is also known as smart glass. So where would you use this privacy/smart glass? Just about anywhere. Consider these possibilities: The shower, the front door, any or all windows in your house, skylights (to calm the noon sun), your office’s conference room. You name it — privacy

Yardsticks not all useless Teachers give some lesson s subject to criticism as the state’s end-of-course tests may be, state legislators should slow down their rush to dismantle some key pieces of the accountability system that has been held up as a model for the rest of the nation. The N.C. House has passed a bill that would abolish four of the seven required tests — those in U.S. history, civics and economics, Algebra II and physical science. The bill’s primary sponsor, Rep. Bryan Holloway, and other advocates argue that an overemphasis on testing permeates the statewide curriculum, hindering educators who could be more effective if local school systems were given more leeway to set and enforce standards. There’s some basis for that argument; in fact, it’s one that some educators themselves have made in calling for a reconsideration of standardized testing. It’s part of the reason that state education officials recently decided to end the state-required performance gateways that previously linked promotion and graduation to endof-grade and end-of-course tests. Testing is an important evaluation tool, but it’s not the only measurement of achievement. But Judge Howard Manning Jr. thinks legislators could use a history lesson themselves, and perhaps a refresher on constitutional law. He warns that the proposed legislation could end up in the courts, if it becomes law in its present form. Manning presided over the landmark Leandro decision declaring that the state has a constitutional obligation to provide the opportunity for a basic education to every child. In a lengthy memo to House and Senate leaders, he laid out his rationale that abolishing these tests would make it difficult, if not impossible, to determine how well that basic education is being delivered. But even if Manning hadn’t weighed in, there’s another reason to delay this action. Before making further changes to the accountability measures, wouldn’t it make sense to first evaluate changes that have already been made and assess other reforms currently in the works? Ending the performance gateways was a substantial change, and others are on the horizon. The state Department of Public Instruction is already revising some of these tests as it moves more toward early diagnostic assessments, rather than simply identifying who’s made the grade after the fact. Summarily dismantling the testing system may be a popular thing to do, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best thing for student opportunity or school accountability. The goal should be to improve how we measure academic success, not simply break all the yardsticks.


Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

He who throws dirt always loses ground. — Unknown

Moderately Confused

Budget cuts bring out worst in Wisc. educators on’t watch too much television, for sure enough, it will make you worry our society is traipsing toward some inglorious end, and I’m not talking about trashy reality shows. I am talking about news shows giving us glimpses of political reality, such as a telecast from Madison, Wisc. Two women were being interviewed. One JAY AMBROSE was a schoolteacher who had figured the children in her educational care mattered less than trying to keep personal goodies flowing from government. She was a protester taking off from her job against all the rules. The other woman was an ethically interesting physician providing the truant with a note saying she had missed work because she was sick.


The teacher, conveying an outraged sense of put-upon piety, insisted she was indeed sick, emotionally upset, ruined to the core by the injustice of a governor seeking to save a budget for the long-term protection of her state. As I listened, I began to think to myself that an initial judgment I had made was wrong. This woman was not cheating her students through her absence. She was doing them a favor. This protest in Madison has seemed dominated by teachers, maybe because of their numbers or maybe because they mouth off more than oth-

er government employees. Whatever the case, they’ve left an unfavorable impression on me, as has a national spokeswoman for teachers, Randi Weingarten, a union chief who was more rude than alert on a PBS interview about the Wisconsin plan to curtail collective bargaining. Can teachers really be this uncomprehending? This selfish, this . . . but wait. There’s another side. I know this other side because, to begin with, I come from a family of teachers. My maternal grandparents were, for a period, public school teachers. My mother was a schoolteacher. My only sibling and her husband were both schoolteachers, and their son and his wife teach now. My aunt had a reputation as the fiercest high school English teacher her town of Owensboro, Ky., ever saw. I’ve known any number of notable teachers outside my family, but naturally enough think my mother was special, a superbly inventive educator always seeking new ways to penetrate young minds. She admired most of her fellow teachers, but not all. As I got old enough to understand, she would sometimes talk about those she felt belonged elsewhere than the classroom, including one she believed was more focused on torment than instruction. Any group will have its bad apples and it should surprise no one that researchers can provide solid evidence of rank incompetence among teachers. What should enrage everyone is that unions do

their level best to keep them teaching. They do this mostly through devotion to a tenure system that can make trying to fire someone for even the most egregious acts a lengthy, prohibitively expensive process that at the end of the day may still leave the culprit on hand to wreck young lives. Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, did all she could to prevent union-quelling changes that ultimately lifted Washington D.C.’s students to new levels of achievement. On a recent “News Hour” show on PBS, she argued efforts to cut costs in Wisconsin were uninformed skullduggery. Her performance was well summed up when she accused a debate opponent of lying for saying something he did not say. Treat quality teachers as well as sanely possible, but get rid of failures. The irrecoverable damage they can do is an offense that no less a defender of unions than President Barack Obama has implicitly challenged through his backing of merit pay. States moving to end tenure include Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Nevada and New Jersey. Good for them. We need to diminish union muscle to strengthen education reform. • • • Jay Ambrose, formerly Washington director of editorial policy for Scripps Howard newspapers and the editor of dailies in El Paso, Texas, and Denver, is a columnist living in Colorado.

Here we go again. Kannapolis has announced that it will spend $1.2 million of your hard-earned tax dollars to put a tunnel under the Loop Road. I guess that is so all of those fortunate people who have gotten jobs in Murdockville can walk to work if they choose. Sounds like the “road to nowhere” to me. West Eighth Street has been closed for over three years to fix a bridge. Want to guess how long this tunnel will take? Wake up, citizens! Take control of your money.

Stand up to pirates Why is our president not sending a flotilla to wipe out these pirates as Jefferson did in the early 1800s? The words of John Adams in the early years, when the Barbarian Pirates roamed the sea, hold as true today as they did then: Writing to President Jefferson, he said, “The Policy of Christendom [most of the European powers] has made Cowards of all their Sailors before the Standard of Mahomet. It would be heroical and glorious in us, to restore Courage to ours. I doubt not we could accomplish it, if we should set about it in earnest. But the Difficulty of bringing our People to agree upon it, has ever discouraged me.” The piracy came to an abrupt halt once Jefferson and Madison realized political correctness and appeasement only emboldened the Muslim world while strength and force dissuaded them. Like Carter and Clinton, Mr. Obama seems to have no taste for engagement, preferring instead to genuflect before our enemies. Oh, by the way — drill, baby, drill. Drill now, drill here! — Chuck Hughes Salisbury

He knows a lot about behavior and how to motivate students because he is an elementary music teacher, but recently, he completed courses and became a certified dog trainer. He actually got into the dog training business quite by accident, and just like with teaching school, this has now become a passion. When Glenn and his wife, Heather, first married, they adopted a neighDICY borhood mixed-breed dog, MCCULLOUGH Teddy. A little time later, they purchased a Great Dane puppy, Dreyfus. The two dogs were taken to obedience school, and while there, Glenn began to learn simple techniques. He taught Dreyfus how to pull a wagon, and soon the dog became something of a celebrity. Dreyfus even had his picture taken for the newspaper while pulling the wagon. He also performed as a goat, in a musical, at Woodleaf Elementary School. Glenn thought he knew a lot about training dogs, but soon he was in for a surprise. • • •


The following story tells Glenn’s tale: “Thank goodness, there were the occasional events that gave me reality checks. I remember the time I had just deep fried my first turkey. It was in the middle of the summer, of all times, but I was very excited nonetheless. “Our little Eli was 4 years old, and he loved nothing more than food. He had just tasted a sample of his mom’s pineapple upside down cake and could not wait to dig into it. The turkey was cooling on the counter, and the cake was resting on the stove.

everyday life with your dogs, so it is not just training, but a real life exercise. However, I am and will always be glad that they ruined that turkey. You just can’t buy those kinds of memories.” • • •

eli sherrill poses with Roka. “Heather’s mom and dad, Pappa and G.G., had just come over for a short visit. We walked them out, as usual, and were only out of the house half a minute or so. “Eli ran into the house preparing for his feast, and Heather and I heard him scream at the top of his lungs, ‘Oh no! Oh NO!’ We rushed in and the aroma of turkey was throughout the house. Eli was now yelling, ‘the dogs are eating the turkey, the dogs are eating the turkey!’ Both of our boys were on top of the turkey, which was now in the floor, ripping it apart, and stopping every now and then shaking their burning tongues and going right back at it. It was very reminiscent of a scene from the movie ‘The Christmas Story.’ “I was horrified, not only because I was disappointed my deep fried masterpiece was ruined, but all the training I had done teaching my dogs to not bother the counters had failed. “Then, right in the middle of the chaos, Eli yelled one more time, ‘They got the turkey!’ and then he turned around and said with the biggest smile ever, ‘But they didn’t get the cake!’ Our son can always find the good in a situation. We laughed for what seemed like hours. “I came to realize training is an ongoing process. It should be integrated into

Glenn’s Great Dane, Dreyfus, lived to be 11 years old, and when he died everyone in the Sherrill family was devastated. After about eight months, Glenn says he began praying for another dog for their family, and they were led to Roka. A Turkish Kangal, Roka is a livestock guardian that had worked on a ranch in Oklahoma. Bull calves need protection from predators such as coyotes, and this dog fulfilled his job with flying colors. Glenn found out about Roka through a breeder, and now Roka makes Rockwell his home. He not only fits perfectly into the family, but also into Dreyfus’ custommade harness. When working with this dog, Glenn realized he had a lot to learn about dominant independent breeds. Many friends had asked him to work with their dogs, but he knew he needed more training, so Glenn enrolled in the Animal Behavior College Dog Training Program. He had 10 months of extensive coursework and exams, plus he volunteered at Harry Welch's rescue, All Dogs Great and Small. He also worked with a mentor, as a training assistant, and taught group classes and private lessons. Glenn gets personal satisfaction, in seeing a dog and its owner, actually build a solid and dependent relationship with each other.

NC company foils bomb plot Lawyers in Baker case took evidence

BENGHAZI, Libya (AP) — Foreign mercenaries and Libyan militiamen loyal to Moammar Gadhafi tried to roll back the uprising against his rule that has advanced closer to his stronghold in Tripoli, attacking two nearby cities in battles that killed at least 17 people. But rebels made new gains, seizing a military air base, as Gadhafi blamed Osama bin Laden for the upheaval. The worst bloodshed was in Zawiya, 30 miles west of the capital Tripoli. An army unit loyal to Gadhafi opened fire with automatic weapons on a mosque where residents — some armed with hunting rifles for protection — have been holding a sit-in to support protesters in the capital, a witness said. The troops blasted the mosque’s minaret with an anti-aircraft gun. A doctor at a field clinic set up at the mosque said he saw the bodies of 10 dead, shot in the head and chest, as well as around 150 wounded. A Libyan news website, Qureyna, put the death toll at 23 and said many of the wounded could not reach hospitals because of shooting by “security forces and mercenaries.� A day earlier, an envoy from Gadhafi had come to the city from Tripoli and warned the protesters: “Either leave or you will see a massacre,� the witness said. On Tuesday night, Gadhafi himself called on his supporters to hunt down opponents in their homes. Zawiya, a key city close to an oil port and refineries, is the nearest population center to Tripoli to fall into the hands of the anti-Gadhafi rebellion that began Feb. 15. Hundreds have died in the unrest.

Huge crowds watch Discovery’s last flight CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Discovery, the world’s most traveled spaceship, thundered into orbit for the final time Thursday, heading toward the International Space Station on a journey that marks the beginning of the end of the shuttle era. The six astronauts on board, all experienced space fliers, were thrilled to be on their way after a delay of nearly four months for fuel tank repairs. But it puts Discovery on the cusp of retirement when it returns in 11 days and eventually heads to a museum. Discovery is the oldest of NASA’s three surviving space shuttles and the first to be decommissioned this year. Two missions remain, first by Atlantis and then Endeavour, to end the 30-year program.

Boeing lands $35B tanker contract WASHINGTON (AP) — The Air Force has awarded a $35 billion contract to build the next generation of air refueling tankers to Boeing Co. The announcement was made at the Pentagon late Thursday afternoon after the financial markets closed. It was certain to be welcome news in Washington state and Kansas, where much of the work on the tanker will be done. The decision was a blow to the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co., which also had bid for the contract. It was a major disappointment for Alabama, which had been counting on the work at a longshuttered military base in Mobile. The Air Force has tried for nearly a decade to replace its aging fleet of Eisenhower-era tankers, the equivalent of a flying gas station.

Democrats remain elusive in Wisconsin MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin state troopers were dispatched Thursday to the doorsteps of some of the AWOL Democratic senators in hopes of finding at least one who would come back to allow a vote on a measure to curb the power of public-employee

r nte Wi le


unions. The stepped-up tactic ordered by the Republican head of the Senate came amid reports that at least a few of the missing senators were returning home at night before rejoining their colleagues in Illinois. Meanwhile, the state Assembly appeared close to voting on the union-rights bill after more than two straight days of filibustering. Democrats agreed before dawn Thursday to limit the remaining number of amendments they offer and the time they devote to each one. That could bring a vote later in the day on the measure Gov. Scott Walker insists is necessary to ease the state’s budget woes and avoid mass layoffs.

GM makes money? First time since 2004 DETROIT (AP) — In a remarkable financial U-turn, once-bankrupt General Motors recorded its first profitable year since 2004 and is tantalizingly close to reclaiming its title as the world’s No. 1 automaker. The company faces a bumpy road ahead: Gas prices are rising, GM has only a few new models, and its European operations are still losing money. Still, the automaker’s $4.7 billion profit for 2010 was impressive, especially considering where it has been. The company lost more than $80 billion in the five years before its bankruptcy and needed a government bailout to survive. The annual profit, fueled by strong sales in China and the U.S. as the global auto market began to recover, gave GM its best year since 1999.

But attorneys who do so are increasingly “raising eyebrows,� he said. One potential dilemma is that a defense attorney who removes a piece of evidence risks becoming a witness against his or her own client by turning the evidence over to prosecutors. The North Carolina State Bar’s Rules of Professional Conduct say that “applicable law may permit a lawyer to take temporary possession of physical evidence of client crimes for the purpose of conducting a limited examination that will not alter or destroy material characteristics of the evidence,� and that lawyers may have to turn over the evidence to police After Dubs became her lawyer, Elisa Baker told police in interviews that Zahra had been dismembered. And in the company of Dubs and Ehlers, Elisa Baker led police to at least three locations in Caldwell and Catawba counties last fall, according to search warrants.

Launch director Mike Leinbach anticipated it would be “tough� to see Discovery take off for the 39th and final time, and even harder when it returns March 7. “It’s a very, very personal thing that we love to do,� Leinbach explained. “It’s a lot more than just our livelihood. It gets in our soul.�

of second-degree murder in Zahra’s death. Parts of Zahra’s dismembered body were found scattered in remote locations in Catawba and Caldwell counties. Dubs had been representing Elisa Baker until a Tuesday hearing in Catawba County Superior Court, when Elisa was assigned attorney Scott Reilly, who had been representing her on other charges, ranging from bad checks to bigamy. Baker is being held on a total bond amount of $307,700. Ehlers told the Associated Press he took the evidence back to Dubs’ office to see if Baker was “telling the truth� about her role in Zahra’s death. “Once we had it ... everything fit,� he said. “We believed her story.� There’s debate over when defense attorneys can remove potential evidence from a crime scene for testing or other purposes, said Ronald Wright, a professor at the Wake Forest University School of Law.

Gadhafi supporters strike back in Libya

associated press

carolina Biological supply company in Burlington alerted authorities about suspicious shipments to a college student from saudi arabia now accused of plotting bomb attacks.

CHARLOTTE (AP) — The former defense team for a North Carolina woman accused of killing her disabled 10-year-old stepdaughter took key evidence from a crime scene before it was turned over to authorities searching for the girl’s body, the suspect’s former attorney said Thursday. But Lisa Dubs, who was one of murder suspect Elisa Baker’s attorneys until this week, said she did nothing wrong. The defense attorney said she’s allowed to collect evidence that helps her client and that she was prohibited by law from then turning it over to police without her client’s permission. The defense investigator says the evidence helped convince Dubs that Baker was being truthful. Legal experts say that gathering evidence — taking photographs at a crime scene, for example — is common for defense teams, but that removing potential evidence falls into a murkier area that many attorneys avoid. “It was only in our possession long enough to negotiate an agreement with law enforcement and then we turned it over immediately,� the Hickory lawyer told the Associated Press. Dubs declined to comment about what evidence her private investigator Steve Ehlers recovered, or how long they had it in their possession before they provided it to the Hickory Police Department. Dubs said the evidence was significant, but wouldn’t elaborate. She said that if she hadn’t reached a deal with investigators, they would have tested the evidence and “put it back in the same place that we found it, then left it for law enforcement to find.� The departure of Dubs from Elisa Baker’s defense is the latest twist in the highprofile case of Zahra Baker, the disabled, freckle-faced girl whose disappearance and death have riveted communities in North Carolina and her native Australia. Elisa Baker, 42, was indicted Monday on charges

A Specialty Contractor Since 1979 With Over 7000 Completed Jobs




LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — A college student from Saudi Arabia who studied chemical engineering in Texas bought explosive chemicals online as part of a plan to hide bomb materials inside dolls and baby carriages to blow up dams, nuclear plants or the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush, the Justice Department said Thursday. One of the chemical companies, Carolina Biological Supply of Burlington, N.C., reported $435 in suspicious order by Aldawsari to the FBI on Feb. 1. “After mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for jihad,� or holy war, Khalid AliM Aldawsari wrote in his private journal, according to court documents. Aldawsari, 20, wrote that he was planning an attack in the United States for years, even before coming to the U.S. on a scholarship. He said he was influenced by Osama bin Laden’s speeches and that he bemoaned the plight of Muslims. Con-way Freight, the shipping company, notified Lubbock police and the FBI the same day as Carolina Biological with similar suspicions because it appeared the order wasn’t intended for commercial use. Within weeks, federal agents had traced his other online purchases, discovered extremist posts he made on the Internet and secretly searched his off-campus apartment, computer and email accounts and read his diary, according to court records.

Ryan has more predictions for 2011 BY CLIFF BRUNT Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — Rex Ryan is at it again. Brimming with confidence after his team reached the AFC championship game the past two seasons, the outspoken New York Jets coach has promised a Super Bowl win next season. “I believe this is the year we’re going to do it,” he said. “I believe this is the year we’re going to win the Super Bowl. The fact is, I thought we’d win it the first two years. AssociAted Press “I guarantee we’ll win it rex ryan predicted his team to go all the way once again on this year.” The Jets are the only team thursday.

to play in a conference championship game each of the past two years, something Ryan mentioned more than once while speaking to reporters Thursday at the NFL scouting combine. Ryan said his team made major strides last season, and he believes it is natural to expect the Jets to take the next step. “I care what our organization believes and what our fans believe,” he said. “If we can improve a little more, then why not us?” Ryan made headlines when he made the Jets’ divisional playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts a “personal” matchup between himself and Colts quarter-

back Peyton Manning. The Jets prevailed 17-16. The next week, he pulled out the personal card again, this time calling out New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick, and the Jets won 2821. Ryan wasn’t as brash heading into New York’s AFC Championship matchup with Pittsburgh, and the Steelers defeated New York 24-19. Thursday’s 17-minute session was vintage Ryan. He talked for more than five minutes before taking a question, often drawing laughs from the media. Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum doesn’t

mind his coach speaking up. “Anyone that’s down or feeling bad about themselves, spend a couple hours with him and I promise you’ll laugh a few times,” Tannenbaum said. “He’s a great football coach. There’s a lot been said about his personality, his guarantees, but at the end of the day, we got to judge him by his record. We’re lucky to have him.” This isn’t the first time Ryan has promised a title. During last season’s training camp, Ryan was asked to sign his team’s logo sticker on the back of ESPN’s tour bus. Instead of just signing his name, the brash Ryan wrote: “Soon to be Champs.”

Four area teams aim for regionals BY MIKE LONDON

The fine line between being a good team and an exceptional one is always drawn between the sectional finals and the regionals. Four Rowan teams try to take that last step toward exceptional seasons tonight. North Rowan’s boys, West Rowan’s boys and Salisbury’s girls will try to secure regional berths on the road. Salisbury’s boys are the lone local team at home tonight. Games are scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Next week’s Western Regional is in Greensboro. 2A girls Salisbury (23-1) at North Surry (23-2) Salisbury’s girls are Salisbury’s girls, and their track record of eight straight Western Regional appearances is unbelievable. They’re favored to make it nine tonight in Mount Airy, even with a long trip and a quality opponent. Counting this year’s 2-0, Salisbury has a 23-0 record in sectional contests the past nine seasons (some years the Hornets received a firstround bye). Obviously, they have gone 8-0 in sectional finals during that span. The Hornets have beaten Forest Hills, North Stanly (twice), Western Alamance, West Stanly, Ashe County, Ledford and Carver in finals. Salisbury seniors Ashia Holmes, Ayanna Holmes and Isis Miller have played in three sectional finals. It’s a little different Salisbury team this season, with the most size the Hornets have ever had, and they’ve been able to keep rolling despite an injury to quick guard Doreen Richardson. Salisbury’s only loss was opening night to 4A power Butler. The Hornets have won 23 straight since then under first-year coach Chris McNeil’s direction. Salisbury has romped easily in its playoff games — 87-41 and 70-31. Salisbury’s closest result against a 2A team, and the term “close” is used loosely, was a 57-39 win against

CCC rival Thomasville. T-ville’s Bulldogs are still alive and will be taking on fellow CCC member Central Davidson tonight for a regional spot. Salisbury’s list of victims is impressive and includes NPC champ North Iredell and SPC champ Concord. Those two teams meet tonight for a berth in the 3A regional. Olivia Rankin (12.9 points per game) is the leading scorer for the balanced Hornets. Brielle Blaire (11.1), Ashia Holmes (10.1), Jessica Heilig (9.5) and Ayanna Holmes (9.5) also are capable of leading the offensive production. Rankin has 940 career points. Salisbury potentially has four games left. North Surry’s Greyhounds have lost twice to 1A powerhouse Bishop McGuinness but not to anyone else. North Surry crushed Lexington on Wednesday with an early 17-2 run. Like Salisbury, the Greyhounds have a sister act in Nicole and Kristina Rumplasch. The Rumplasches combined for 36 points against Lexington. The other standout for North Surry is guard Morgan Midkiff, who had 11 assists on Wednesday. 1A boys North Rowan (23-5) at Monroe (17-9) Only two teams in school history (1986 and 2001) have won more frequently than coach Andrew Mitchell’s team has this season. North is trying to qualify for the regional for the first time since the 2001 team that went 27-1. North had not won a playoff game since 2002 before finally breaking that drought in this year’s sectionals with a laugher against N.C. Science & Math and a routine win at River Mill. That North playoff victory in 2002 came in a first-round overtime game against Monroe. The Cavs lost their 2002 second-round game at Burlington Cummings by 30 and proceeded to drop six straight playoff decisions, including a 76-74, twoovertime setback against East Sur-

Fowler succeeds

Bobcats trade Wallace BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press

CHARLOTTE — The Charlotte Bobcats have agreed to trade forward Gerald Wallace to the Portland Trail Blazers for a package that includes two first-round picks as owner Michael Jordan cuts payroll and eyes the future. Coach Paul Silas confirmed Thursday the deal made just before the deadline would also give the Bobcats center Joel Przybilla and reserve forward Dante Cunningham, who are in the last year of their contracts.

The Bobcats also sent backup center Nazr Mohammed to Oklahoma City for reserve forward D.J. White and the expiring contract of guard Morris Peterson. A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Thursday night the Bobcats will get this June’s first-round pick Portland acquired from New Orleans and a 2013 pick from the Trail Blazers. The Bobcats are also acquiring Sean Marks from Portland, but will waive him along with forwards Dominic McGuire and Derrick Brown, guard Sherron Collins and Peter-

son, the person told the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal was still awaiting league approval. Wallace, averaging 15.6 points and 8.2 rebounds, was the last original member of the Bobcats, taken in the 2004 expansion draft. Wallace developed from a benchwarmer in Sacramento to an All-Star last season and was clearly the face of the fledgling franchise on the floor. The 28-year-old Wallace’s numbers had tailed off some this season and he’s due to make about $21 million over the next two years.

Gerald Wallace will head to Portland for a pair of first-round picks.

MARANA, Ariz. — In a Match Play Championship with a youthful complexion, Rickie Fowler was dressed in matching pink shoes and shirt when he walked onto the driving range and past his opponent, Phil Mickelson, who looked him up and down and smiled. “Sophia has some shoes like that,” Mickelson said, referring to his 9-year-old daughter. “She wears them to her dance class.” Mickelson has become somewhat of a mentor to Fowler, so the kid knew what was coming. Once they got onto the course, Fowler was hotter than his choice of color at Dove Moun-

tain. Fowler was 8-under par when their match ended on the 13th hole, a 6-and-5 win that sent Mickelson to his worst loss ever in this fickle tournament. “I love guys like Phil. In a way, he’s taken me under his wing a bit,” Fowler said. “I love watching him play. I love playing with him. And obviously, it was huge for me going out there and getting the job done today.” Fowler was 5 under over the last four holes, which included a chip-in for birdie from behind the 10th green and a pair of eagles, the last one with a 4-iron

FRIDAY February 25, 2011



MOUNTAIN TROUT OFFER WINTER OPTION Low lake levels eading to the mountains in the dead of winter is probably one of your best options for getting a legitimate shot at big, feisty fish that are more than willing to play tug-of-war with you. Rainbow, brown and brook trout, all available in North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mountain streams, are active in cold water. And to prove it, my GLENN buddy HUDSON called his shot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going out of the park,â&#x20AC;? said my friend John, as he waded out into the cold mountain stream. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to catch a fish.â&#x20AC;? I was very impressed at such a bold statement, since I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen a fish caught in person in months. But then, just like an angling version of Babe Ruth, he proceeded to pull a nice, big rainbow trout out of a deep hole that lay just 15 feet in front of us. He repeated that feat four or five more times before wading back to the shoreline to give the others a chance. It was awesome, and humbling. All I could offer in my own attempts with the five-weight fly rod in my hand was five or so minutes of fits and spasms that resulted in the wayward casting of my fly into overhanging branches. The fly was then broken off in frustration. That action was then followed by 45-minutes of mind-numbing concentration trying to tie a fly onto my microscopic â&#x20AC;&#x153;tippet,â&#x20AC;? which is just a snooty word for fishing line. This process continued all day. But John made his point. And, unlike traditional boat fishing, mountain trout fishing can be some of the easiest fishing youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ever do logistically, because you are fishing out of the trunk of your car, pulling right up to the

fishing hole in many cases, within a short walk of the trout. In our case, we were fishing the Raven Fork section of the Enterprise Waters within the North Carolina Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation, in Cherokee, about 31â &#x201E;2 hours from Salisbury. One of the coolest parts of the day was watching a â&#x20AC;&#x153;hatch,â&#x20AC;? when insects such as certain species of fly go from their aquaticlarval stage to the morerecognizable airborne stage of life. Again, my friend proceed to grab one of these flies, a black stone fly, it turns out, and then matched the hatch perfectly to continue his fish-catching demonstration.

The successful fly combination turned out to be a terrestrial, earth-worm type fly, a brown San Juan worm, with another fly, a midge that nicely imitated the stone fly larvae, tied about 18 inches below the worm. About 18 inches above the worm was a couple of pieces of split-shot to get the flies bouncing off the bottom. It takes experience to feel the bite fishing this way, but the reward can be quite incredible when a huge trout takes your fly. Spring is a great time to escape to the mountains for a day or two. It can be a nice piscatorial break while weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re waiting for High Rock Lake to get back up to fishable temperatures.

That warmup has really gotten cranked up in the last two weeks, so better lake fishing canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be far away. If you are planning to go to the mountains to fish in Cherokee, you need to visit them on the web at https://ebcis.sovsportsnet. net/default.aspx, to get your special permit to fish these extraordinary waters. There are also many streams in North Carolina that offer great fishing. To learn more about regulations and locations, visit Glenn Hudson is a freelance fishing writer living in Salisbury.

Fishinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with Capt. Gus

Professional bass tournament comes to Lake Norman Lake Norman has always been popular with recreational boaters, skiers, wake boarders and those who enjoy raftups. But until recently, fishermen didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold it with the same high regard. In fact, fishing was so poor that anglers nicknamed it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Dead Sea.â&#x20AC;? Beginning in the mid- to late-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s, it regenerated itself into one of the premier bass fishing reservoirs in the United States. Lake development usually has a negative effect on fishing, but because Norman was void of grass, stumps, standing timber and other habitat needed for a healthy fish population to thrive, the addition of thousands of boat docks and miles of rip-rip was exactly what the fishery needed. More importantly, the introduction of spotted bass, a member of the black bass family, gave tournament anglers another fish to target. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for spot-

ted bass to adapt to Lake Norman. Today, there are so many who fish for â&#x20AC;&#x153;spotsâ&#x20AC;?, as they are called, that the limit of five fish is easily achieved on most trips. On average, the spotted bass is smaller than its largemouth and smallmouth cousins, but there are plenty of 2, 3 and even 4 pounders around to make fishing for them a lot of fun. The state record, a 6 1â &#x201E;2 pounder was taken from Lake Norman on Dec. 26, 2003. The trophy belongs to Eric Weir, who caught it on a Zoom Finesse Worm â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a plastic lure popular with local fishermen. In the fall of 2010, Visit Lake Norman, led by Executive Director Sally Ashworth, was instrumental in helping organize and facilitate five major bass tournaments. The largest was the FLW Bass Fishing League Super Tournament held in September, followed by the locally popular Ryan Newman Char-

ity Tournament in December. Collectively, bass tournaments during the second half of 2010 added $410,000 to the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy. This seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kick off begins with the Bass Pro Shops Bassmasters Southern Open scheduled for March 24-26, 2011. This is the first time a national Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (BASS) event has been held on Lake Norman, since 2006. The tournament will feature 400 of the top professional anglers. Boats will launch from Blythe Landing each morning. Weigh-ins will be at Blythe Landing the first two days and the Bass Pro Shops in Concord on the final day.

Upcoming events Boater Safety Class: The Lake Norman Sail and Power Squadronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next boater safety class will be at 8 a.m. on Saturday at the Duke Energy Environmental Center, Hunter-

sville. The cost is $45. Register at or by calling Bob Yannacci at 704-660-5568 for more information. Hot Spot of the Week: Some stripers are feeding under seabirds near the N.C. 150 Bridge and along the edges of the river channel. Best bets are crappie and white perch, which are moving toward the shallows to begin their spring spawn. Spotted bass are active over deep humps and around the same brush piles and fish attractors where crappie are feeding. The surface water temperature varies by location, but is mainly in the mid to high forties in open waters not affected by power generation. Capt. Gus Gustafson is an outdoor columnist and a professional fishing guide on Lake Norman. Visit his web site, or e-mail him at

Local fisherman are taking advantage of the current draw down of High Rock Lake, this has provided an excellent opportunity to go out and replace structure and mark exposed structure on their GPS systems or maps. With lake levels around 10 feet below full, a virtual forest has sprouted as Christmas trees, homemade fish attractors, and bamboo and other plants or trees have been sunk on the bottom of the lake in an effort to attract game fish including bass and crappie. Most fishermen have their own secret fishing hole, which often is a result of placed structure. Although there is no specific state regulations or rules prohibiting placement of certain materials for fish attractors, common sense should be used. Items that generally would be considered as nonhazardous materials include: small trees, bamboo, tree branches and other naturally occurring plants or bushes. Items such as metal, glass, large plastic items, anything that may contain oil, fuel, acid or other products would be considered littering and persons found placing such items could be faced with serious criminal charges. Fishing has been slow on High Rock Lake for the past two weeks. Some catches of nice crappie have been seen, but overall fishing activity has been light. With warmer weather the fish will become more active and as the month of February progresses fishing will do nothing but improve. On the warmer days look for exposed structure, use a cork with a plastic jig body. The depth that the jig is fished may need to be adjusted to find that â&#x20AC;&#x153;sweet spotâ&#x20AC;? but once found, along with the right color combination good catches of crappie usually occur. On High Rock Lake favorite colors vary, but good standbys include black/ green, red /green, and white or pearl. Of course minnows are a favorite and a bait that almost always puts fish in the bucket. Lakes on the Yadkin River chain have a minimum size limit of 8 inches for crappie with a creel limit of 20 per person per day.

NFL, Union make progress

PLAYOFFS FroM 1B ry that ended their 2010 season. North is really athletic, but it’s biggest assets are stingy defense (seven opponents have been held to 30 or fewer points) and amazing depth. No Cav averages more than 11 points (Javon Hargrave and Sam Starks are close to that figure) but Michael Connor, Jordan Kimber, Michael Bowman, Malik Ford, T.J. Bates, Pierre Givens and Daniel Chambers have joined Starks and Hargrave in producing big offensive games. Unlike the Cavaliers, Monroe has a dominant player that North will have to contain. Point guard Jamison Crowder poured in 40 points this season against West Stanly. Crowder was a big part of Monroe winning the state title last season. He scored 20 in the championship game, a 16point win against Goldsboro. 2A boys Cuthbertson (22-7) at Salisbury (19-6) Cuthbertson, a No. 2 seed, won in overtime at West Stokes on Wednesday. That victory allowed Salisbury to play another home game. It doesn’t figure to be an easy one. Cuthbertson’s Cavaliers average 66 points a game and recently beat Monroe, North Rowan’s foe tonight. Cuthbertson is not named after Mike Cuthbertson, a 6foot-5 post man, but he’s averaging 13.3 points a game. Shelton Mitchell, a 6-2 freshman, averages 14 points. Cuthbertson opened in the fall of 2009. The Union County school drew students from Marvin Ridge, Parkwood and Weddington. Salisbury’s great senior class that includes Darien Rankin, John Knox, Alex Weant, Romar Morris and Corey Murphy is trying to qualify for the school’s first regional since Bobby Jackson was running the show in 1992. Jackson and Bobby Phillips combined for 37 points to hold off Lexington in a sectional final that season.

Trading block hit hard in NBA Associated Press INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — Byron Scott never dreamed he’d be coaching Baron Davis a second time. For a while, he wasn’t sure they’d ever speak again. Once together in New Orleans, the hard-headed, oldschool coach and volatile player clashed — about everything. Scott and Davis rarely saw things eye to eye, leading to a messy separation that seemed irreparable. They’ve supposedly mended their relationship. The Cavaliers better hope so. One of the NBA’s top point guards when motivated, Davis was acquired by the rebuilding Cavaliers along with an unprotected 2011 first-round draft pick on Thursday from the Los Angeles Clippers for guard Mo Williams and forward Jamario Moon. • OKLAHOMA CITY — The Boston Celtics and Oklahoma City Thunder weren’t content with just being toptier playoff contenders, swapping starters in a surprising deadline deal. The Celtics sent center Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City and acquired forward Jeff Green and center Nenad Krstic on Thursday, causing a shuffle in the frontcourt for the Thunder. The Celtics also dealt reserve Nate Robinson to the Thunder and received a 2012 first-round draft pick, and cash, in the deal that was approved by the NBA about five hours after the trade deadline. The draft pick was previously owned by the Los Angeles Clippers. • HOUSTON — The Rockets sent point guard Aaron Brooks to Phoenix and forward Shane Battier to Memphis in separate deals Thursday that brought guard Goran Dragic, forward DeMarre Carroll and center Hasheem

NFL commissioner roger Goodell hopes the league and the players union can reach an agreement. “So we got a little bit of information.” In other words: He and everyone else must wait to see what happens next week. In addition to the return to mediation in Washington, team owners are scheduled to meet in nearby Chantilly, Va., Wednesday and Thursday. “During the intervening weekend, the parties have been asked by us to assess their current positions,” Cohen said. Saturday was one of four active players on the NFLPA’s executive committee present Thursday, joined by Denver Broncos safety Brian Dawkins, and Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel and guard Brian Waters. Nine of that committee’s 11 members participated at some point during these seven days of talks; union president Kevin Mawae and New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees did not. No NFL team owners attended the talks in Washington. Cohen asked both parties to keep quiet about the mediation, and union lawyer Richard Berthelsen said Thursday that gag order is still in effect. All Smith would say as he walked toward the union’s headquarters was: “We’ll see you all next week.” Seeking to keep a lid on what’s happening in the talks, the NFL sent an e-mail on behalf of Goodell to team owners, presidents, general managers and PR employees Thursday, attaching a copy of Cohen’s statement and saying: “We will have no further comment beyond this release and no club or member of your organization should comment beyond this release.” After months of infrequent and sometimes contentious talks, the NFL and union have been communicating regularly with Cohen present. The sides went more than two months without any formal bargaining until Feb. 5, the day before the Super Bowl. The sides met again once the next week, then called off a second meeting that had been scheduled for the following day.

who steadied his emotions over the last three holes to knock out top-ranked Lee Westwood — the third straight year the No. 1 seed did not make it out of the second round. The highest seed remaining after two wild days was PGA champion Martin Kaymer, the 25-year-old “Germanator” who had to go 20 holes to beat Justin Rose. It hasn’t been a bad week for the Americans at this World Golf Championship. They have eight players in the round of 16, the most in five years. The surprise is the list of players. Tiger Woods, Steve Stricker and Jim Furyk were gone after the first round. Mickelson joined them on Thursday. Leading the way is a new cast of emerging stars, from Fowler and Watney, to Hunter Mahan, who won three of the last five holes to rally against Robert Karlsson. But this youth movement isn’t about the Americans.

What is diverticulosis? Dear Dr. Gott: Several months ago, I was diagnosed with diverticulosis. Can you tell me the difference between diverticulosis and diverticulitis? Some days I do well with this problem, and other days are awful. I am trying to eat the right kinds of food, but still some days are bad. Do you have any suggestions on what DR. PETER foods are good for this GOTT problem? Dear Reader: Diverticulosis occurs when small pouches in the lining of the large intestine bulge outward. Each pouch is called a diverticulum, while multiple pouches are known as diverticula. Most people with diverticulosis are symptomfree. Those with symptoms will have cramps and bloating of the lower abdomen. They may complain of constipation. When diverticula become inflamed, the condition is known as diverticulitis. Pain may be mild or appear suddenly, increasing in intensity in the lower left abdomen. A person may have a fever, chills, vomiting, nausea and experience a change in bowel habits. There may be bleeding from weakened small blood vessels in the diverticulum, colon blockage and infection. Diverticulitis can lead to infection, which can be treated successfully

with antibiotics. If the infection worsens, an abscess may form on the colon wall. Diverticular disease, a blanket term used to describe both diverticulosis and diverticulitis, is likely the result of a low-fiber diet, lack of exercise and obesity. It is often diagnosed when a physician is testing a patient for a completely different ailment. For example, it can be identified during a colonoscopy that a physician may perform to rule out polyps or cancer, through CT (computerized tomography) or abdominal ultrasound. Treatment for relatively mild cases is with pain medication, oral antibiotics and a high-fiber diet. Fiber will keep stool softer and lower pressure within the colon at the same time. Severe cases may require hospitalization, IV antibiotics and a few days without food to allow the colon time to heal. For more detailed information on this topic, I suggest you visit the National Digestive Diseases Information website at To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “Diverticular Disease.” Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order made payable to Newsletter and mailed to Newsletter, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092-0167. Be sure to mention the title or print an order form off

my website at Dear Dr. Gott: Could you please tell me what a carcinoid tumor is and what causes them? I was recently diagnosed with some in my stomach. Dear Reader: Carcinoid tumors are slow-growing tumors that commonly begin in the lungs or digestive tract. Because they are slow growing, they don’t produce symptoms in their early stages. They excrete hormone-like substances. In later stages, flushing of the face and upper chest, cough, hemoptysis, chest pain, wheezing, bowel obstruction, diarrhea and difficulty breathing may occur. The primary treatment for this condition is surgery, which will be successful as long as the cancer has not spread to other parts of the body. Treatment modalities for arresting tumor growth are experimental at this stage but show great promise. Chemotherapy is of little benefit and is not generally indicated. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including “Live Longer, Live Better,” “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Diet” and “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook,” which are available at most bookstores or online.

Their bidding tells the story BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

Evan Esar, a humorist who died in 1995, said, “A signature always reveals a man’s character — and sometimes even his name.” A bid may reveal a hand’s character — and sometimes even its pointcount. The classic example is a one-no-trump opening. But in this deal, which is one of my favorites for teaching purposes, South’s hand increases in value because of the opponents’ bidding. If East and West passed throughout, then after one heart - two hearts, South would probably rebid two spades. For one thing, that might be his side’s best fit, North having five spades and three hearts. North would probably rebid three diamonds, which would persuade South to

bid four hearts. But South would be worried about those spade losers. After West makes a onespade overcall and East raises to two spades, South knows his partner has at most one spade. South might jump straight to four hearts, but if North has his values in clubs, that contract might be unmakable. So South makes a help-suit game-try of three diamonds. North, with great values in that suit, happily jumps to game. After West leads the spade ace, there is little to the play. South has nine red-suit winners and can take two spade ruffs in the dummy for an overtrick. Note the power of the double fit. And since North and South have a double fit, so do East and West. The rule with a double fit is to declare. Four spades is down only two. And if North or South goes to five hearts, West might find the killing trump lead. But bid-

ding four spades with those balanced hands is not easy.

Active weather persists across the country on Friday as two major weather systems continue pounding away at both the East and West Coasts. A low pressure system moving down the West Coast will bring record breaking low temperatures to the state of California Friday night and Saturday morning. As the system moves southward, it picks up ample moisture from the Pacific Ocean and produces widespread precipitation. Snow showers are likely to 1,000 feet across most of California, with sleet and frozen rain possible to sea level. Snow accumulation is not likely at sea level, due to warm ground temperatures. Winter weather advisories have been issued across the many hills of California, as snow may accumulate to as low as 400 feet. Expect snowfall totals across the Sierras of 6 to 12 inches, with 10 to 18 inches above 7,000 feet. Overnight low temperatures will range from the mid-20s to the lower 30s across the low levels of the West Coast, while the Cascades and Sierras will see overnight lows between -10 and zero degrees. Daytime highs will range in the 30s and 40s. Meanwhile, in the East, a low pressure system continues making its way eastward, pushing a moist warm front toward the East Coast. While this system has already produced severe thunderstorms with hail and strong winds, more hail and tornado development is likely from the Gulf states to the Mid-Atlantic states. Rainfall totals will range from 1 to 2 inches in most areas, over 2 inches are likely in areas of severe storm development. In between these two systems, a weak trough of low pressure leads a trough off the Rockies and into the High Plains. Due to cold air over the region, this will allow for light and widespread snow showers to develop over the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest.
