Monumental quake hits Japan Former Rowan residents in midst of the horror BY SCOTT JENKINS


Houses burn after the Natori river flooded the surrounding area in northern Japan after strong earthquakes hit Friday.

Jamie Harris was taking a lunch break in her second-floor apartment Friday when the world began to shake. It was the second time she’d experienced an earthquake in the past week, but during the first one, the young teacher’s school just “shook a little bit.” She didn’t think much of it, other than it was kind of interesting. “I had no idea that days later, we would all be in the middle of this devastating quake,” Harris told the Post via Facebook on Friday. The most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan struck off the island nation’s northeastern coast early Friday afternoon — about 12:45 a.m. Friday Eastern Standard Time. It unleashed a 23-foot wall of water that slammed into the coastline. Hundreds were confirmed dead. Harris is a former Rowan County resident and the daughter or Ric and Carol Harris. The Rowan-Cabarrus Community College alumnae and University of North Carolina at Charlotte graduate teaches at Amity English School in Saitama, Japan. She lives inland and more than 200 miles from Sendai, the Japanese city closest to the earthquake’s epicenter, but still felt its force. At first, she thought a truck had hit her building. “Then the room shook so much that all my things started falling from the shelves,” Harris wrote. She threw clothes on the floor and covered photographs of her family and friends, her camera and laptop, and her rice cooker. As glass crashed around her, Harris wrote, “I kept praying it would stop. As soon as it did, I ran down the stairs and to my school to make sure the teachers and students where OK.” No students were there for class at the time. The manager and teachers who were at the school told Harris they’d never felt an earthquake so powerful. They waited out the aftershocks, which continued all day. Around 3 a.m. Rowan time, Harris called her parents. She didn’t want them

couple of years ago, Salisbury went bonkers when George Clooney and Renee Zellweger came here to shoot scenes for the movie “Leatherheads.” Zellweger bought coffee at the Starbucks drive-through window. Clooney ate lunch at The Wrenn House. The movie, which included John Krasinski as Clooney’s football MARK rival, used the WINEKA Salisbury depot and the N.C. Transportation Museum at Spencer Shops as backdrops. We were in high cotton. Several Rowan Countians landed parts as extras in the movie, which was, sad to say, pretty much a deadhead at the box office. But the buzz over “Leatherheads” — and the citizenry’s par-

ticipation in its shooting — pales in comparison to the first movie ever shot in Salisbury. In 1925, Hollywood director Don Newland came to town much like Professor Harold Hill in “The Music Man” and promised to make local citizens and city landmarks the stars of a two-reel, silent comedy called “Salisbury’s Hero.” And he actually pulled if off. During the 1920s and 1930s, Newland went from city to city on the East Coast and in the Midwest hawking a Hollywood-for-themasses formula in which he relied entirely on local actors following a tried-and-true script. The key roles were Baby Ethel, Mr. and Mrs. Henpeck, the hero and the rival. The most dramatic scene — townspeople were encouraged to come see it — always was a head-on car crash after a big chase through town. The crash allowed people to

Cline said Hudson told her that wasn’t how the order, made public Thursday, should have been worded. “I’m upset by it,” she said. “I’m shocked that it was in the written order that way. I was alarmed when I read that.” Hudson’s report is much more critical of the other ADA, Freda Black, and an agent with the State Bureau of Investigation who conducted blood tests in the case. He said Friday that he names Cline because the case continued through the courts while she was the top prosecutor and she had a duty to know about and report the mistakes. “I don’t find that Ms. Cline was actively involved in knowingly being deceptive,” Hudson said in a phone interview Friday. “She takes responsibility because her agents handled the case.” He said he wouldn’t change the report because he thinks it’s clear that Black and Jennifer Elwell of the SBI bear the most responsibility for mishandling the case.

Third-party candidates must get signatures RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s highest court on Friday upheld a state law that forces minority political parties to collect thousands of signatures before election ballots lists their candidates. The state Supreme Court ruled that the law does not unfairly burden third-party candidates who want to join Republicans and Democrats on ballots. The law requires a minority party to collect thousands of signatures to show it has some public support before its candidates are listed. The petition process repeats in later elections if neither a party’s candidate for governor nor president receives 2 percent of the vote. The Libertarian Party of North Carolina sued in 2005, saying the threshold to become officially recognized is one of the highest in the country and puts a restriction on its members’ rights. The Green Party of North Carolina later joined the lawsuit. The ruling written by Justice Patricia Timmons-Goodson said the state’s signature requirements are constitutional because they allow for orderly elections.

Say cheese: Landis holding photography workshop March 26 BY SHAVONNE POTTS

LANDIS — Whether you’ve always wanted to take better vacation pictures or figure out how your new camera works, Landis may just be the place. The town is hosting a photography workshop later this month, but the deadline for registration is approaching. The workshop, which will be taught by members of the Capital City Camera Club of Raleigh, is March 26 from 8:30 to noon in council chambers. The deadline to regis-

ter is March 18. The cost to participate is $20, which covers the cost of a CD for photos and a framed print. Those interested can register on the town’s website,, or pick up a registration form at Town Hall, 312 S. Main St. “It’s for all levels — a beginner and intermediate,” said Debbie Goodman, the town’s deputy clerk. The town hosted its first workshop last spring. “We wanted to have it in another location and with different lighting. We hope to have one in the fall, too,” Goodman said.

Some of the pictures taken at the last workshop have been on display at town hall since that time. The photos taken at this workshop will also go on display. This class will have an instructional meeting first and then participants will move on to Memorial Gardens in Concord. Goodman said the first class was supposed to be for children, but since so many adults wanted to participate, the instructors continued with adults. Mike Acquesta, town engineer and a member of the Capital City Camera Club, said they are “a bunch

of guys and gals who enjoy photography as a hobby, and some are semiprofessional.” One aspect of the photography club’s charter is to provide outreach and community service. “I have clients all around the state, including Landis, and I thought why not see if they would like us to come out and do a workshop,” Acquesta said. Club members are not paid. “We do it because we like doing it,” he said. Members have planned workshops in other towns in the coming months. Acquesta said participants can

use digital or film cameras, but those with film will have to have their own pictures developed. The club will download digital images to a CD for participants. He would prefer those interested provide their own cameras, but if they don’t have one, club members will have a few on hand. This workshop will feature macro, or close-up, photography. “We will start with the basic information then progress to close-up photography,” Acquesta said. The workshop is open to anyone.

Don’t fall for scams

FROM 1a to see the news and worry when they got up later. Carol Harris said she and her husband were glad their daughter got them out of bed. Later in the day, they started using Skype to communicate. Carol Harris said they had worried about Jamie living in Japan, where earthquakes are not uncommon. She noted, however, that her daughter lived in Seattle before, which sits on a fault line and near a dormant volcano. “Geographically speaking, we were happy she got out of Seattle,” Carol Harris said. Jamie Harris said the best thing people can do is stay positive for their friends or loved ones in Japan and for the nation, which she calls “a bright country with many capable people who look out for each other as a whole country.” Harris was able to contact most of her friends in Japan and make sure they were safe. She planned to try to help people who came to her area for relief. And she was trying to get back to normal as quickly as possible, though that may be difficult to do soon. Things seemed calm in Saitama, she wrote, and “people just want to stay home.” Some couldn’t get home, though. The trains stopped running, so two co-workers stayed at Harris’ apartment across the street from her school. “The tremors and the warnings continue, but for now everything is OK here,” Harris wrote. • • • Carmen Swindel of Long Ferry Road heard the news about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan around 7 a.m. Friday. She immediately thought of her son, Cpl. John Swindel, who is stationed on Okinawa with the U.S. Marine Corps. She knew she couldn’t get in touch with her son because he’d been in training for several days. “I was just hoping and praying the Lord would have John call, and he did,” she said. John Swindel called his parents, Carmen and Larry, around 8:30 a.m. — 10:30 p.m. in Japan — to say that he and everyone in his unit were fine. The Pentagon said later in the day that all U.S. military personnel in Japan had been accounted for. Even though Okinawa is about 400 miles south of the nation’s main island, John Swindel told his mother Marines on his base “were aware it was happening. ... It just shook up their base.” The Swindels also have a daughter, Gaile Armstrong, who lives in the northern California coastal city of Eureka with her husband, William Armstrong. He is a chief in the U.S. Coast Guard and was deployed Friday to

Unable to get in touch with their daughter most of the day, Carmen Swindel said they finally got to speak with her around 4 p.m. “A town that was about 30 minutes away from Eureka was hit pretty bad, and they’ve got them on standby in case they need to evacuate them,” Carmen Swindel said. “She’s just going to keep us posted.” • • • When David Hood got home from work around 9 p.m. Thursday night in Hawaii, he turned his TV to news, as he always does. That’s when he learned of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan. “It was just wall-to-wall coverage at 9 o’clock Hawaii time,” he said by telephone Friday. Hood, a 1986 graduate of North Hills Christian School and the son of Walter and Liz Hood, went to college at Chaminade University in Honolulu and stayed in Hawaii, where he works in construction and renovation. When he heard about the disaster in Japan and the prediction that a tsunami was headed for the Hawaiian Islands, Hood started calling friends and watching the clock, awaiting the hour forecasters said the wave would hit the Pacific Ocean chain. At 11 p.m., government officials began sounding sirens all over the island and police with bullhorns cruised the streets, advising residents and tourists

quality work,” he said. Public Works Director David Ketner recalled the 2007 repaving project. “Instead of patching it, we went into an agreement to resurface the whole road. We contracted with the paving crew,” he said. Ketner said when a road cracks like Railroad Avenue, “it’s because the sub-base is not adequate.” He said the road is as good as what’s put on top of it. “You can’t patch a bad spot and expect it to go away,” Ketner said. Sometimes patching is all the

in low-lying areas to seek higher ground. They closed highways near the ocean so drivers wouldn’t be swept away if a big wave hit and emergency vehicles would have clear access if they needed it. “It was pretty spectacular,” Hood said of the preparation. Hood lives in a valley away from the coast, so he stayed put. He heard waves varied in height along the coastline and on the islands. Waves up to nearly 7 feet were reported, causing some property damage. “I think that we probably fared very well,” Hood said. He recalled a similar tsunami warning last year that culminated in a 6-inch change in wave height. “We tend to be a bit on the cautious side.” • • • Rowan County resident Karrie Crowell’s brother, Capt. Lucas Crabtree, is stationed in Hawaii with the U.S. Army. She got a text from her sister-in-law Friday saying everyone was fine. The couple and their daughters live in the mountains of Oahu. “They did get back to us and everything’s OK,” Crowell said. Even before she heard from her brother’s wife, Crowell was comforted that her brother and his family live away from the coast and that the tsunami was smaller than originally feared in Hawaii. Waves about 3 feet high were recorded in Oahu and Kauai in the Hawaiian Islands, and about 7 feet high on Maui.

town can do since funding to completely repave a road is limited. The town can use Powell Bill money to fund road projects. The public works department patches roads with Cold Patch, a quick-drying asphalt repair. “It’s a 50-pound bag. It’s asphalt in a bag. It’s still a temporary fix,” Ketner said. The Cold Patch activates with the air, is packed down and dries. “It’s DOT approved,” Ketner said. When there are potholes or cracks in the road and then there’s freezing

DAMAGE FROM 1a apart and knocked boats loose. The quake was caused when one giant tectonic plate was shoved under another, the type of movement that produces the biggest earthquakes. It’s the same kind of quake that caused the devastating 2004 Indonesian tsunami. “You’re looking at something that’s rupturing a very significant patch of the Earth’s crust,” said David Applegate, senior science adviser at the U.S. Geological Survey. “If anyone is in the position to ride this out, it is the Japanese.” Experts in the U.S. say Japan has the strongest building standards in the world for withstanding earthquakes. It trains and prepares more for them. And unlike the United States, Japan adopted an expensive earthquake early warning system that gave people a precious few seconds to take cover. Still the result was devastating. “The energy radiated by this quake is nearly equal to one month’s worth of energy consumption” in the United States, said U.S. Geological Survey scientist Brian Atwater. The force of the quake was so strong that it moved the island of Honshu 8 feet to the east, said USGS geophysicist Ken Hudnut. It sped up the Earth’s rotation by 1.6 microseconds, according to NASA.

or precipitation, the water gets into cracks and expands, Ketner explained. “It’s harder on pavement,” he said. Ketner also said the water and freezing temperatures speed up the deterioration of the road. Ketner said there are several streets throughout town that need repaving — and some are in worse shape. “We’ve got issues all over town. I feel sure it’s a statewide problem,” he said. Ketner said repairing the roads will hinge on available funds.

After today’s devastating earthquake in Japan, many Americans will want to make contributions to help the victims. The easiest way to help is by making donations to disaster relief agencies and charities that are experienced at working with disaster victims. However, as with every natural disaster, there are unscrupulous people who will attempt to take advantage of your generosity. “In the face of any disaster, Americans will immediately make donations to help the victims,” said BBB President Tom Bartholomy. “Unfortunately, scammers will also try to take advantage of generous donors.” If you want to give, the BBB has this advice: • Before making a contribution, check the charity out to see if it meets the BBB’s Standards for Charitable Giving. Go to to obtain detailed reports on relief organizations and charities. • Give to charities that are experienced in disaster relief. While other charities may solicit donations for earthquake relief, these organizations may not have the ability to quickly deliver aid to those in need. • Watch out for fake charities that imitate the name of well-known organizations in order to confuse donors. • To ensure your contribution is tax deductible, donations should be made to organizations that are tax exempt charities. • Beware of emotional appeals that do not address how the charity will directly meet the needs of victims and their families. • Do not give cash or send money via wire transfer. Checks or money orders should be made out to the name of the charitable organization, not to the individual collecting the donation. • Do not give your credit card number or other personal information to a telephone solicitor or in response to an e-mail solicitation.

Ketner spoke at a recent budget session about two roads: West Stokes Street and Springbranch Lane, both of which are in worse shape, he said. He told the board there are more than a dozen other roads identified about six years ago that are in need of repairs. Ketner said any residents who have complaints about roads that need to be patched are encouraged to report a concern on the town’s website at Contact reporter Shavonne Potts at 704-797-4253.

Encouraging connections Being America isn’t easy Laurels to the Covenant Community Connection for encouraging discussion about immigration and immigrants in Rowan County. The upcoming forum (7 p.m. Tuesday at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College) is especially timely given the release of recent census figures that reflect the community’s growing Latino population. There’s a tendency to view as “outsiders” those who are different from the purported mainstream, whether by virtue of having a different accent, practicing a different religion or holding to different cultural traditions. The CCC’s annual “Meet Your Neighbor” forums encourage us to move beyond “outsider” stereotypes and learn more about the different people around us. As organizers note, the forum isn’t designed to make a political statement but to encourage human connections. • • • Dart to an apparent resurgence in methamphetamine labs in North Carolina. After the state tightened oversight of peudoephedrine sales a few year ago, meth busts dropped. But a report in the Fayetteville Observer says that encouraging decline appears to have been shortlived. Authorities disrupted 235 meth labs in 2010, up from a low of 157 in 2007. Authorities think meth-makers have altered their techniques, devising new ways to get over-the-counter ingredients and disguise their dangerous, drug-making operations. • • • Laurels to Cleveland’s Freightliner plant for receiving state recognition of its environmental enhancements. The N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources recognized Freightliner and GKN Sinter Metals in Conover as new members of the Environmental Stewardship Initiative. Businesses earn the recognition through programs that save water, reduce waste, lower energy consumption or help reduce air emissions (as Freightliner has done through its use of solar energy to generate electricity). More than 100 sites now participate in the ESI program. From 2004-2009, ESI members saved more than 2.5 billion gallons of water, 208 million British thermal units of energy, 211 million gallons of wastewater, 352,000 tons of landfill waste, 1,150 tons of air emissions and 759 tons of hazardous waste. By embracing more sustainable production practices, those businesses also benefitted economically, saving more than $33 million.

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

A good retreat is better than a bad stand. — Irish folk saying

t is not easy being America. Maybe that’s why America often finds it hard to do. Being America requires more than simply existing between certain geographic lines. Rather, it requires vindicating a set of ideals that are downright dangerous. This would include the notion that all men and women are created equal and have from birth the right to live, be free and pursue personal happiness. Also that they enjoy freedom of — and from — religion, freedom to assemble and freedom from random search and seizure. And most dangerous of all: that they LEONARD possess the absolute freedom PITTS to speak their minds. What makes those promises dangerous is that they entrust people — not the smart people, not the good people, not the right people, but the people — with power. Enough to challenge authority, make trouble, thwart police — even enough to restrain government itself. So yes, sometimes America finds it hard to be America. History is dotted with the big failures: the Alien and Sedition Acts, slavery, the Trail of Tears, Plessy v. Ferguson, the Japanese internment, the Red Scare, COINTELPRO. Arguably more insidious are the smaller failures, the everyday acts of moral cowardice that come and go in the rush of daily events: terror mosque panics and Hispanic bashing, driving-while-black traffic stops and the banning of books from public libraries. The reason it’s not easy being America is that there is always a temptation to avoid the demands of dangerous ideals, a temptation to find a more expedient way. That is what adds the taste of bittersweet to last week’s emphatic Supreme Court ruling in favor of Westboro Baptist Church. Westboro, of course, is no more a church than the Playboy Mansion is. It is, rather, a boil on the buttock of reason, a tiny, Topeka, Kansas-based congregation of diseased minds whose entire raison d’etre is to spread the following bizarre thesis: America has




North Carolina should follow Illinois’ lead on executions I would like to commend Gov. Pat Quinn of Illinois for signing into law a bill that will ban executions in his state. Illinois is the 16th state in our country to eliminate capital punishment. I think that executions should be eliminated in our state (and nationwide) as well. There is no telling how many innocent (and guilty) men, women, and children have been executed over the years. No government should have the right to strap someone down and take his or her life. If you consider yourself a Christian, then ask yourself, who would Jesus execute? — Chuck Mann Greensboro

grown too tolerant of gays; therefore, God has turned against America. He gets His point across by killing American soldiers. Westboro members spread this hateful perversion of the gospel by showing up at military funerals bearing signs that depict images of anal sex and slogans like: “God Hates Fags” and “Thank God for Dead Soldiers.” After this carnival of repugnance desecrated the 2006 funeral of a 20-year-old Marine, Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, his father, Albert, sued and won a $10.9 million verdict. Westboro appealed. By a vote of 8 to 1, the Supremes vindicated the “church.” While noting that the protesters’ activities added to the “incalculable grief” of the Snyder family, Chief Justice John Roberts, writing for the majority, said we may not respond by punishing them. “As a nation,” he wrote, “we have chosen a different course — to protect even hurtful speech on public issues to ensure that we do not stifle public debate.” And I don’t mind telling you: I had hoped the justices could find some loophole, some technical, legalistic way of restricting Westboro’s grotesque assaults while leaving intact the constitutional guarantee of free speech. Part of me still wishes they had. But another part of me knows we do that all too often, seek, for reasons both admirable and repulsive, to compromise our own freedoms, weasel out of defending those dangerous rights. Small wonder. Sometimes, those rights protect wrongs. But the thing is, rights too freely abridged are not rights at all, but privileges. And privileges can be taken away. Last week’s ruling, then, repulsive as it was, disappointing as it was, was also correct, also a needed reminder that freedom is a messy thing. It is a reminder that strips innocence away like tree bark. Yes, it’s painful when America fails its own ideals. But sometimes, it’s painful when America does not. • • • Leonard Pitts is a columnist for the Miami Herald, 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, Fla., 33132. E-mail:

Broder will be missed for his talent and grace From N.C. political consultant and author Gary Pearce, blogging at David Broder, the long-time Washington Post political reporter who died Wednesday, was one of the most decent people I ever met in politics. He was a legendarily hard-working reporter. His news stories and his columns were consistently — even maddeningly — non-ideological. His energy and longevity were remarkable. He covered the 1960 presidential election, and he was still writing during the 2010 election. The AP had a nice profile. The last paragraph tells you what he was like: “Young editors who grew up revering Broder’s work sometimes found themselves in the unnerving role BRODER of being his editor. Broder typically accepted their suggestions with a breezy grace, urging them to trust their instincts. He sometimes startled copy editors by thanking them for improving his articles.” I met Broder during Jim Hunt’s first term as governor. Over the years, I would occasionally get a friendly, business-like call from him — checking in on what was happening in North Carolina politics. Where many reporters hone an aggressive, “gotcha” persona, Broder was unfailingly gracious and polite, kindly and softspoken, even when his questions and his copy were tough. When I was casting about for someone to write a jacket blurb for my biography of Governor Jim Hunt, I tried a Hail Mary. I called David and asked if he would consider doing one. “Send me your manuscript,” he said. A couple of weeks later, he e-mailed a nice little paragraph that we put at the top of the back cover. Pardon me a bit of pride that my book will always feature a few kind words from one of the finest journalists and gentlemen our country ever produced.

his is a story I’ll probably file with others I call “Private things I should not have made public,” or “Confessions of a woman who ought to have had better sense.” I’m going to tell it for two reasons: First, because, well, it’s what I do. And second, because I suspect you’ve done something equally harebrained or maybe even dumber. The question is, will you admit it? We’ll see. Before I tell you what I did, I should tell you SHARON why I did it. I’m addicted to RANDALL Diet Coke. I’m not proud of it, but we all have vices (yes, even you), and from what I’ve seen (I live in Las Vegas) I could do worse. My addiction is such that I keep at all times one or more 12packs stashed about the house: one in the fridge, others in a cupboard. If the cupboard is full (my husband hogs it for his bottled water), I leave them in the back of my car. They slide about on turns, a comforting swishy sound I’ve come to enjoy. If the cupboard is bare (except for cursed bottles of water), I never panic. I know I can find a 12-pack in the back of my car, enough to tide me over until I go out and score another stash. That’s where this adventure begins. This morning I opened the cupboard, found it bare and went out to the garage to get a spare. It was early. My husband had just left for work. I was in my nightgown, not one you’d see on “Desperate Housewives.” It was more like a “before” shot on an extreme-makeover show called “Pimp My Wife.” Much to my dismay, someone (I’m not saying who) had parked my car too near the garage door. I could lift the hatchback, but not enough to reach in and pull out a big 12-pack of Diet Coke. There were two obvious solutions. I could go in the house to get my keys, start the car and pull it forward just enough to lift open the back. Too much trouble. Or I could simply open the garage door and lift the hatchback, while exposing myself and my ratty nightgown to God, all his angels and the entire neighborhood. Not a chance. I devised a third plan that would later make my sister howl like a hyena, “Were you high?” No, I was not. I was in caffeine withdrawal, desperate for a fix. So here is what I did. I lifted the hatchback as far as it would go, wedging it up against the garage door, and proceeded to squeeze through the opening. It would’ve worked just fine, if not for one thing. Or two things, if you count my rear end. In the process of squeezing through the opening, I somehow rolled the car forward a bit, so the hatchback dropped an inch and became wedged beneath a ridge on the garage door. So there I was, half in, half out, stuck between a hatchback and a 12-pack of Diet Coke. I tried backing out, tried rocking the car, tried everything I could think of. It would be hours before my husband got home. I pictured the look on his face as he opened the garage to see the lower half of my lifeless body dangling from my car. I didn’t bother to yell for help. No one could possibly hear me. If they did, the house was locked. They’d call 911 and I’d end up on the evening news (“Woman trapped in ratty nightgown, film at 11!”) Finally, I did what I always do when all else fails: I prayed. Nothing happened. My grandmother used to say God waits to answer prayers to give fools time to think about how we got ourselves in such a fix. I thought long and hard, which isn’t easy when you’re all bent over and stuck. Finally, it came to me. I knew what I had to do. I wiggled up in the back of the car, climbed over the seat, got the Diet Coke, whispered, “Thank you, God,” and went inside. When you find yourself stuck with no clear way out, you need to move forward, not back. That’s my story. What’s yours? • • • Contact Sharon Randall at P.O.

City of Salisbury honors 16 employees City Manager David Treme holds bronze awards for Donnie Beacham, left, and Craig Powers.


2005 to implement a citywide customer service initiative, which has been recognized across the state and made the cover of Public Management, the magazine of the International City/County Managers Association. Representatives from each city department serve on the design team. Every quarter, the team’s Incentives Committee reviews nominations for customer service and names four city workers as bronze

winners. Once a year, the entire team reviews the customer service stories of all bronze winners to choose the gold and silver winners. “Customer service has become our primary principle in the way we do business,” said Joe Eagle, a human resources analyst who facilitates the design team. “One of the truths we’ve learned over the past few years is that the provision of exceptional service is a goal.

It’s a journey or a process, and not just a destination.” Anyone can nominate a city employee for a customer service award. Forms are available on the city’s website at under “highlights.” Click the link “city employee award nomination form.” In addition to Beacham and Powers, winners included: Becky Albrecht and Jason Parks with Technology Services; James Woods with the Street Department; Joseph Shannon with the Transit Department; Terry Penley with Town Creek WWTP; Vickie Eddleman with LM&D Engineering; Donovan Hamm with Code Services; Robbie Holshouser with Facilities Management; Gene Nance with the Fleet Department; George McLaughlin with the Solid Waste Division; Corey Brooks with the Police Department; Tammy File with the Fire Department; Kathryn Clifton with GIS Division; and Richard Kelly with Risk Management.

NY imam to speak at Duke, UNC in support of muslim center RALEIGH (AP) — The leader of an effort to build a Muslim cultural center in Manhattan is coming to speak at Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that Imam Feisal Abdul-Rauf is scheduled to appear Wednesday in Chapel Hill and Thursday in Durham. Abdul-Rauf is leading an effort to build a cultural center called Park51 that conservative critics have characterized as a “Ground Zero mosque.” Bill Balthrop, interim director of UNC’s Institute for the Arts & Humanities, says Abdul-Rauf won’t be stumping for the project or raising money during his visit to Carolina. At Duke, he’s scheduled to

appear alongside the dean of Duke Chapel and take questions from the school’s Muslim chaplain and the associate dean for religious life.

Court orders new trial for ASU student’s killer RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s Supreme Court has ordered a new trial for a man convicted of first-degree murder in the 2005 slaying of an Appalachian State University student. The state’s high court ruled Friday that a judge at Neil Matthew Sargeant’s trial incorrectly barred witness statements that fingered the prosecution’s only eyewitness instead of Sargeant as the killer. Sargeant was spared the death penalty after his 2008 conviction when the parents of 19-year-old slaying vic-

tim Stephen Harrington of Raleigh asked that the sentencing hearing be stopped. The court reversed Sargeant’s convictions and ordered a new trial. Harrington’s body was discovered in the trunk of his smoking car parked near a covered bridge in rural Watauga County. An autopsy found he suffocated after his head was wrapped like a mummy’s in duct tape.

Fear spreads as areas around nuclear reactors evacuated

FROM 1a see Hollywood’s “trick photography� at work. The head-on collision would start with two cars (always furnished by a local dealership) with their front bumpers touching each other. As the camera started rolling, a smoke bomb would be set off underneath the cars, which would then back away from each other. Later, when the film was shown in reverse, it looked as though the cars were moving toward each other and the smoky, head-on smashup. Salisbury’s filmed wreck took place before a large crowd at North Main and Council streets. No matter where Newland found a receptive city, the shooting took only a few days — five in Salisbury. He then sent the raw film for developing and editing in New York. Often within a week after shooting ended, crowds would flock to a moviehouse to see themselves and familiar local backdrops on the silver screen. In Salisbury, the final scenes were shot on a Friday in early June 1925. By the following Wednesday, citizens were going to see “Salisbury’s Hero� at the Capitol Theatre, where it was an added attraction to the silent film “Too Many Kisses,� starring Richard Dix. Hundreds were turned away on the opening day. “Salisbury’s Hero� ended up having a Wednesdaythrough-Saturday run at the Capitol. The Salisbury Evening Post gave this account of its popularity: The newspaper had a vested interest in “Salisbury’s Hero� because it commissioned Newland to make the movie. The Post gave daily front-page updates and teases before, during and after the filming. Newland always sold his idea to a town’s newspaper first, so he would have the marketing arm he needed to

line up his cast members and shamelessly promote the movie. “ ‘Salisbury’s Hero’ is expected to prove a sensational success as no effort or resource will be spared,� the newspaper trumpeted. The Post held a contest of sorts to decide who the leading lady of “Salisbury’s Hero� should be. For several days, it ran stories and a separate, clip-out application calling on women to put their names in the pot. “For many decades the charm of Salisbury women has been the envy of the world,� the Post said on May 26, 1925, “and now it is to be permanently ensnared by the motion picture camera and held ‘official of record.’ “... The offer of leading role in this picture is to the most beautiful and capable young woman in Salisbury carrying with it no obligations.� Alice Lentz won the lead role of Baby Ethel (who really wasn’t a baby). Mrs. Walter McCanless was first tabbed to play Mrs. Henpeck, but she was replaced later by Mrs. R.M. West. Mr. Henpeck’s role went to W.B. Strachan. J.E. Younce was the hero (a newspaperman, of course), and Fritz Smith played his rival. “None of the participants showed the least bit of nervousness and performed with a remarkable degree of initiative and skill for their first appearance before the camera under the Kleig lights,� the Post reported after the shooting on Day 1. It’s difficult to determine the exact plot of the movie, but apparently things get testier between Mr. and Mrs. Henpeck once “Baby Ethel� arrives and while the men vie for her attention. While the movie crew was in town, readers learned that “a battery of Kleig lights� capable of 250,000 candlepower of light had been brought in by Newland’s crew. The director was assisted by cameraman Howard M. Prager and “electrical studio crews.� Interior scenes were

its nearby Fukushima Daini site. The government quickly declared states of emergency for those units, too. Nearly 14,000 people living near the two power plants were ordered to evacuate. Japan’s nuclear safety agency said the situation was most dire at Fukushima Daiichi’s Unit 1, where pressure had risen to twice what is consider the normal level. The International Atomic Energy Agency said in a statement that diesel generators that normally would have kept cooling systems running at Fukushima Daiichi had been disabled by tsunami flooding.

shot at a “pocket edition Hollywood studio� set up on the stage of the Capitol Theatre. People attending 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. showings of regularly scheduled movies also could watch the live filming of scenes for “Salisbury’s Hero� and learn the mysteries of movie-making. Other settings in Salisbury included the new Boyden High School. One afternoon, Newland incorporated the laying of the school’s cornerstone into the movie. He used the Salisbury Country Club for a scene with bathing beauties. The Norwood home on Fulton Street also was used, and Newland always made sure to have parts for children. A “baby show� in the film included mothers with children 5 and under. There also was a scene specifically for children 5 to 12. Newland was no dummy. From the newspaper accounts, a car chase scene which ended with the headon wreck on Main Street, started in Spencer at Rowan Motor Co. B.I. Young of Rowan Motor Co. starred as one of the drivers in the chase scene as it came south on Salisbury Avenue toward the downtown. Rowan Motor provided the Nash automobiles for the wreck scene. In one scene, Strachan as Mr. Henpeck refused to hang upside down from an airplane (on the ground). “Rumor has it,� the Post said, “that W.B. Strachan ... balked at this shot and a member of the Gates Flying Circus, which is in Salisbury for a circus today and Monday ... doubled for him.� The final scene shot in Salisbury was in the Salisbury Evening Post’s offices. Sadly, a copy of “Salisbury’s Hero,� which probably became the property of the newspaper, does not survive. The “Hero� movies were made on nitrate film and only two are known to still exist — those from Huntingdon, Pa., and Janesville, Wisc. In North Carolina, “Hero� movies also were shot in

Wilmington and Durham for sure. Reports show that Newland was filming “Wilmington’s Heroâ€? by the end of June 1925. A native of Battle Creek, Mich., Newland died in 1951 at the age of 55. The resumĂŠ he always gave to newspapers citing his movie credentials said he had produced one-reelers with Mary Pickford, James Kirkwood, Flora Finch and John Bunny, and he also was credited with directing comedies for Mack Sennett. It’s doubtful Newland became rich from his Harold Hill movie-making, but the concept was genius. Here it is, 86 years later, and he’s being mentioned in the same star-struck breath as George Clooney.

The government declared a state of emergency at the Daiichi unit — the first at a nuclear plant in Japan’s history. Hours later, the Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the six-reactor Daiichi site in northeastern Japan, announced that it had lost cooling ability at a second reactor there and three units at

TOKYO (AP) — Japan declared states of emergency for five nuclear reactors at two power plants after the units lost cooling ability in the aftermath of Friday’s powerful earthquake. Thousands of residents were evacuated as workers struggled to get the reactors under control to prevent meltdowns. Operators at the Fukushima Daiichi plant’s Unit 1 scrambled to tamp down heat and pressure inside the reactor after the 8.9 magnitude quake and the tsunami that followed cut off electricity to the site and disabled emergency generators, knocking out the cooling system.

Titles on line today North faces Pender for 1A crown BY RONNIE GALLAGHER

RALEIGH — North Rowan boys basketball coach Andrew Mitchell was startled out of a sound sleep earlier this week by his wife, Sandra. “My wife, out of the blue, said, ‘Andrew!’ I jumped out of bed.” He said S a n d r a chirped, “I’m just so excitMITCHELL ed that y’all got to the state.” “When she gets excited, I know it’s an exciting time,” Mitchell smiled. And why wouldn’t Rowan County be buzzing about this year’s North Rowan team. It has been 26 years since the Cavaliers won a state title. Today, they meet a talented Pender Patriot team that has won 24 straight games. Game time is 2:30 p.m. in Reynolds Coliseum on the campus of N.C. State.

UNC wins — barely BY AARON BEARD Associated Press

GREENSBORO— Tyler Zeller had UNC 61 just enough to Miami 59 time c a t c h Kendall Marshall’s pass under the basket and put up a shot before the horn sounded. The layup capped a huge comeback that saved sixth-

ranked North Carolina from a shocking exit at the ACC tournament. Marshall penetrated into the lane and found Zeller for the buzzer-beating basket as the Tar Heels rallied from 19 down in the second half to beat Miami 61-59 in Friday’s quarterfinals. The top-seeded Tar Heels (25-6) spent most of the day playing nothing like the team

that had lost just twice since December, including a rousing win against rival Duke less than a week earlier to clinch the regular-season title outright. They threw away passes against Miami’s zone, couldn’t establish their big men in the lane and couldn’t get out in transition for easy baskets to build momentum.

WASHINGTON — Unable to decide how to divvy up $9 billion a year, NFL owners and players put the country’s most popular sport in limbo Friday by breaking off labor negotiations hours before their contract expired. The union decertified, and 10 players, including MVP quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, sued the owners in federal court, putting the NFL on a path to its first work stoppage since 1987. Despite two extensions to the collective bargaining agreement during 16 days of talks overseen by a federal mediator — and previous months of stop-and-start negotiating — the sides could not agree on a new deal. The league said it hadn’t decided as of Friday evening whether to lock out the players, who, meanwhile, went to court to request an injunc-

tion to block such a move. As was clear all along, the dispute came down to money. In the end, it appeared the sides were about $185 million apart on how much owners should get up front each season for certain operating expenses before splitting the rest of the revenues with players — a far cry from the $1 billion that separated the sides for so long. But the NFL Players Association refused to budge any further without getting detailed financial information for each team. “I would dare any one of you to pull out any economic indicator that would suggest that the National Football League is falling on hard times,” NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said. “The last 14 days, the National Football League has said, ‘Trust us.’ But when it came time for verification, they told us it

Associated Press GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Kurt Busch expected a “full dose of humble pie” during his professional drag-racing debut. He got something way worse. Busch botched both qualifying passes Friday at the NHRA Gatornationals, leaving him little room for error heading into his final two runs Saturday. “An interesting day to say the least,” Busch said. “A lot of rookie things that I’m ready to put behind me. We’ve done this before. I’ve done testing, I know what to do, I know what to expect.” It sure didn’t look that way Friday. The 2004 NASCAR champion smoked his tires on the first run, prompting him to shut down his 1,400-horsepower engine, and covered the quarter-mile strip in 18.334 seconds. It was the slowest time among the 21 competitors. He made even more rookie mistakes during his second attempt. Busch failed to “stage” his dragster within the 7-second time limit and was essentially black flagged. Officially, he “timed out,” and his run did not count. “This has too much bitter in it because I’m the one making all the mistakes,” Busch said. “This is definitely one of those scenarios where things move so fast when you’re doing the burnout and staging.” Busch made other mistakes, too. He ground the gears while backing up after a burnout and nearly caught his car’s parachute on a retention wall while turning off the strip. “We had such an eventful day today, there’s no why we can screw up tomorrow,” he said. If he does, he probably won’t make the 16-car field for Sunday’s elimination rounds. With 12 cars already locked into the finals, Busch is among nine drivers vying for four spots Saturday, when he will get two more passes to turn things around. Busch expected to have some issues. After all, he doesn’t have much experience in the straight-line sport. He bought a 1970 Dodge Challenger

off eBay for $15,000, attended dragracing school and got his first taste of the sport in Gainesville last year. But heavy rain washed out much of his Sportsman class, so he decided he would get more opportunities as a pro. He got manufacturer backing, corporate sponsorship, tutoring from NHRA regular Allen Johnson and entered the Pro Stock division — the NHRA’s third tier of drag racing. Since making the move, he tested for 10 days and made more than 50 runs. Few, if any, ended like the ones Friday. His first error created problems the rest of the day. He was in the first pairing and seemingly didn’t know the track would have as much grip as it did, so his crew had the wrong clutch setup. That caused the tires to shake right off the starting line. He shut have stayed on the gas pedal, figuring other would have similar problems and go for the best time possible. Instead, he shut the car down and coasted through the quarter-mile with a top speed of 36.43 mph. His poor showing left him the first pairing again in the afternoon session and with little feel for track conditions. “I dug the hole in the beginning and dug it again having to go out early,” Busch said. Nonetheless, his problems this time had nothing to do with the asphalt. Busch mistakenly watched the driver in the other lane, Vincent Nobile, instead of the starting tree. By the time he looked up at the tree and started to inch toward the starting line, he had eclipsed the allotted staging time. Busch still made his run, a 6.53second pass that would have put him in 12th or 13th position. Even though he had a little tire shake and was late shifting into third gear, the pass was the only positive part of an otherwise forgetful pro debut. “Hopefully nobody paints my back bumper yellow,” Busch said, referring to how rookies get designated in NASCAR.

Tiger Woods, a three-time winner at Doral, was not among the leaders. Neither was Phil Mickelson. Woods again struggled with his putter, missing four birdie putts inside 10 feet and looking bad at the end. A pair of 6-foot birdie attempts at the 16th and 18th holes never had much of a chance and he wound up with a 74, nine shots behind. • NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — Nick Price has matched the lowest round in Champions Tour history, eagling two of final four holes for an 11-under 60 in the Toshiba Classic.

NHL BOSTON — Montreal police started a criminal investigation into the on-ice hit by Boston's Zdeno Chara that left the Canadiens' Max Pacioretty with a severe concussion and cracked vertebra. Police said they are acting on a request by Quebec's director of criminal and penal prosecutions, Louis Dionne. After evidence is collected, it will be determined if there are grounds for prosecution, they said. Pacioretty said in a statement he doesn't want Chara prosecuted. Also, Air Canada told the NHL it's considering withdrawing its sponsorship unless the league tightens rules to reduce potentially serious injuries. Commissioner Gary Bettman responded that his teams could retaliate by deciding to stop using Air Canada for charter flights, an important source of revenue for the airline.

CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina cornerback Charles Brown must sit out the opener against James Madison and repay benefits to become eligible again. The NCAA ruled that Brown accepted benefits of $86.94 from someone identified as a prospective agent before last season. The NCAA looked into agent-related benefits and academic misconduct, causing 14 players to miss at least one game. Brown and seven others missed the entire season, though the school didn't specify why Brown was out. North Carolina opens spring practice next week. The school also said defensive end Linwan Euwell has left school and won't return next year, while receiver Joshua Adams is being treated for an auto-immune disorder affecting his kidneys. • COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Columbus lawyer who tipped off Ohio State coach Jim Tressel that two of his players were involved in a federal drug trafficking case has received death threats and now says he regrets ever contacting the Buckeyes coach. "I'm not the Judas in this situation. You know, I feel like Peter, but I'm not the Judas," attorney Christopher Cicero said in an interview Friday with ESPN's "Outside The Lines" and reported on Tressel has admitted he violated NCAA rules for not disclosing information Cicero e-mailed to him. He repeatedly refrained from telling Ohio State's compliance department or his superiors about potential NCAA bylaw violations involving some of his players. Tressel has been suspended for the first two games of the 2011 season and must pay a $250,000 fine. The NCAA could levy additional penalties on Tressel. • GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida will unveil statues of its three Heisman Trophy winners during halftime of the team's spring game. Life-sized representations of Steve Spurrier (1966), Danny Wuerffel (1996) and Tim Tebow (2007) will be uncovered on the west side of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on April 9. The school says the honorees will have some role in the event. Since South Carolina's spring game is the same day, Spurrier likely will offer a videotaped message to his alma mater. The statues weigh a com-

bined 17,000 pounds and were provided to the school through private donations.

The NBA roundup ... CHARLOTTE — Gerald Wallace was honored with a video tribute, two standing ovations and numerous chants of his name in his first game back in Charlotte since last month’s jolting trade. But it was his best friend on his old club that got the better of him when it mattered most. Stephen Jackson scored 18 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter, including the go-ahead three-point play on a drive around Wallace in the final minute, and the Bobcats beat the Portland Trail Blazers 97-92 on Friday night to spoil Wallace’s emotional return. In his first game back from a hamstring injury, Jackson finished one point shy of Wallace’s team record for points in a quarter as Charlotte snapped a sixgame losing streak. "We sat back and let him get going and all of a sudden he found his groove," Wallace said of Jackson. "I've seen him in that zone plenty of times." Wallace, the last original member of the seven-yearold Bobcats and their only All-Star, was traded last month for role players and draft picks, a move owner Michael Jordan said would

give them "flexibility" to rebuild the roster in the next few years. Wallace, who had 13 points and nine rebounds, fouled Jackson on his twisting layup to put Charlotte ahead to stay with 48 seconds left. Wallace later fouled out. "It's a lot of love there. We both want to win, but the respect is unbelievable," said Jackson, who also had 10 rebounds. "I love him to death and I wish him the best, but we needed this game more than they did." D.J. Augustin and D.J. White each scored 16 points for the Bobcats. Nets 102, Clippers 98 NEWARK, N.J. — Brook Lopez and Jordan Farmar each scored 24 points, combining for all of New Jersey's overtime scoring, and the Nets rallied to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 102-98 for their fourth straight win. 76ers 89, Celtics 86 PHILADELPHIA — Spencer Hawes had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Elton Brand scored 14 points.

Salisbury’s Brielle Blaire, left, towers over Bandys’ Tess Sigmon.

FROM 1B career points. In the regional final, the East Carolina signee produced 27 points and 18 rebounds. “She has been working out preparing for ECU,” said Evers, who picked up her 300th win earlier this

“We’re more mature this year,” Evers said. “Last year, we were finding our team chemistry. They were waiting on me to tell them instead of going on instinct.” Just looking at the stats on paper impresses Salisbury coach Chris McNeil. “They have a wonderful team,” McNeil said. “They’ve done a lot of damage. But we’re not going to let

that stop us from what we want to do.” And that’s dominate underneath with four Division I signees. “No. 1, you’ve got rebound. The end,” Evers said. “They’re just big.” If Salisbury controls the inside and plays its usual suffocating defense, a third straight title could be in the books. “Hopefully, we’ll come home with a state championship,” McNeil said.

Evers hopes this is finally the year for her Eagles. “You can’t think about other state championship games,” she said. “We believe we have a chance.” Salisbury loves the fact that East Bladen is back. “The girls were excited,” McNeil said about learning of their foe. “It wasn’t a cocky excitement. They love a challenge.”

North Rowan’s Malik Ford (25) has been a shot-blocking force.

1A TITLE FROM 1B “They play real well together,” Battle said. “After we get the bright lights out of our eyes, we should be OK.” The front line of 6-10, 6-7, 6-4 could scare many teams, but North Rowan isn’t one of them. The Cavs play pretty well together, too. Six Cavaliers are between 11 and six points apiece. Javon Hargrave and Sam Starks each score at a 10.8 clip. Pierre Givens (8.6), Malik Ford (7.3), Michael Connor (6.9) and Jordan Kimber (6.5) have all had their moments. “That’s what I like about these guys,” Mitchell said. “They have no concern about



who scores. They all know they’re going to play. They’re so happy for each other. We’ve only got two people in double figures and we’re 265. Nobody thinks they have to score 20. “And they’re willing to defend.” The balanced scoring also says something about Mitchell, who is coaching the boys for the first time after two seasons of winning titles

Cavalier guard Pierre Givens (22) has given North Rowan ballhandling and scoring. with the Salisbury girls. “I didn’t know how we’d be able to get them to accept their roles — average 8 to 10 points and still feel like a major contributor,” he said. Winning has a lot to do with it. The Cavs come in on a 10game winning streak. Pender may not have seen the shot-blocking abilities of the 6-7 Ford or the big butt of the 6-2 Hargrave inside. “I don’t know anything about them,” Battle admitted. “I anticipate it’s going to be a good game. We prefer an uptempo game but the tempo really doesn’t matter. It will probably come down to who makes the least mistakes.” Mitchell doesn’t know much about Pender, either. “We’ve seen every kind of style,” Mitchell said. “I don’t

think they can come at us with anything we haven’t seen. We’ll just try to make the right adjustments.” North is definitely a hot team. The 92 points the Cavs scored in the seven-point West Regional final win against Winston-Salem Prep was a season high. “To get 92 on a stage like that is a blessing,” Mitchell said. To get this far after 26 years of waiting has everyone in the county talking about the Green Machine. Even at a baseball game earlier this week at South Rowan, a Post reporter said all everyone wanted to talk about was North Rowan basketball. A win today can keep the talk going for another 365 days.

Carson’s Gunnar Hogan leaps high over the bag as East Rowan steals another base in the Mustangs’ 8-1 victory.


tyler buckwell/SALISBURY POST

East’s Andy Austin had a good day at the plate with two hits, two runs scored and two RBIs.

Bridges to open the game. “Cold nights, very cold hands, and I’m having trouble getting loose,” explained Bost, who struck out eight. “I thought I was good coming out of the pen, but I wasn’t.” After Gunnar Hogan and Mitch Galloway followed the two walks with solid singles — Hogan smacked a bullet on an 0-2 pitch — Carson (2-3, 1-1) had one run in and still had the bases loaded with none out. But Bost struck out the next three hitters. Carson settled for just one run, and it was the Mustangs’ turn to hit. “Three straight strikeouts,” Cauble said. “You’re just not a very good team if you can’t put it in play.” East senior catcher Luke Thomas was the guy who helped Bost get on track. “I went out and reminded Alex that everyone on this team believes in him,” Thomas said. “He had better control of his curveball than his fastball early, so I called for a lot of them. He could get ahead with his curve, and he settled into the game.” In its half of the first, the Mustangs put three on the board against Carson starter Ethan Free. Two walks set the table for a run-scoring single by Austin, who is red-hot.

tyler buckwell/SALISBURY POST

East coach Brian Hightower has a mound meeting. Nathan Fulbright got the second run home by whacking a ball toward Hogan. Carson’s fine shortstop couldn’t make the play on a tough hop. Avery Rogers’ groundball could’ve been the inning-ending double play Free needed, but Carson settled for a force play after a brief bobble, and the third run scored. Carson’s second brought more missed opportunities— three walks and an infield hit, but no runs, largely due to a baserunning mistake. When a runner turned third base too eagerly, Austin, East’s first baseman, fired a strike across the diamond to Avery Rogers to erase him. “Who else but Andy makes that play?” East coach Brian Hightower said. “And Avery was there.” The bottom of the second

ended the suspense. East scored four for a 7-1 lead, with Justin Morris and Thomas lining sac flies and Ashton Fleming delivering a two-run single. Carson had a chance to limit the damage, but it couldn’t get an out when it had Wesley LeRoy trapped between second and third after Morris bunted through a pitch. Bost, who had to sit for a long time while East batted in the first and second innings, found a groove in the third and wound up mowing down the last seven hitters he faced. “Alex got his breaking ball down and located his fastball,” Hightower said. “We’ll just have to make an adjustment on the time we give him in the pen to get ready.” Reliever Gavin Peeler, who fanned five, was the bright spot for Carson. East got only one run off him — on Thomas’ second sac fly of the night. “Behind in the count, I tried to stay late and trust my hands, and I drove it to the opposite field,” Thomas said. East reliever Will Johnson dominated late. He pitched the sixth and seventh innings and breezed through six hitters. “I think even if Carson had scored four in the first, we’d have come right back at ’em with five,” said Hightower, who was even more fired up than usual. “We ran the bases better than they did. We put balls in play in situations where they were striking out.”

Injury can’t keep Yogi down for long

FroM 1B was none of our business.” By dissolving and announcing it no longer represents the players in collective bargaining, the union cleared the way for class-action lawsuits against the NFL, which opted out of the CBA in 2008. The antitrust suit — forever to be known as Brady et al vs. National Football League et al — attacked the league’s policies on the draft, salary cap and free-agent restrictions such as franchise-player tags. Invoking the Sherman Act, a federal antitrust statute from 1890 that limits monopolies and restrictions on commerce, the players are seeking triple the amount of damages they’ve incurred. That means the stakes here could be in the hundreds of millions. It could take a month for there to be a ruling on the union’s injunction request, and antitrust judgments should take longer.

The court fights eventually could threaten the 2011 season for a league whose past two Super Bowls rank as the two most-watched programs in U.S. television history. The last time NFL games were lost to a work stoppage came when the players struck 24 years ago, leading to games with replacement players. Even though the NFL is early in its offseason — and the regular season is six months away — this is hardly a complete downtime. Free agency usually begins in March, and there are hundreds of free agents now in limbo. Also this month, under a regular schedule, offseason workouts would start, and the owners meet to establish rules changes. Plus, March and early April are when many sponsors and corporate partners renew their deals with the NFL, part of why the league says hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue are going to be lost now. “This obviously is a very disappointing day for all of us.

On Friday, seven months after his investment group bought the team, the AL champion Rangers abruptly announced that Greenberg was leaving. Growing differences between the charismatic CEO, team president Nolan Ryan and board co-chairmen Ray Davis and Bob Simpson had been an ongoing issue out of the public eye. ORIOLES SARASOTA, Fla.— Baltimore Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts, sidelined this week because of back spasms, will have an MRI exam on Saturday.

I’ve been here for the better part of two weeks now, and essentially ... the union’s position on the core economic issues has not changed one iota,” New York Giants owner John Mara said. “One thing that became painfully apparent to me during this period was that their objective was to go the litigation route.” The NFLPA also decertified in 1989. Antitrust lawsuits by players led to a new CBA in 1993 that included free agency, and the union formed again that year. The sides met from 10 a.m. until about 4 p.m. Friday, discussing a new proposal by the owners. When the possibility of a third extension to the CBA was raised, the union said it first wanted assurances it would get 10 years of audited financial information. “I will tell you this: Any business where two partners don’t trust each other, any business where one party says, ‘You need to do X, Y and Z because I told you,’ is a business that is not only not run

About 15 minutes later, the union decertified. “No one is happy where we are now,” NFL lead negotiator Jeff Pash said. “I think we know where the (union’s) commitment was. It was a commitment to litigate all along.” A league statement added: “The union left a very good deal on the table.” “No useful purpose would be served by requesting the parties to continue the mediation process at this time,” said mediator George Cohen. But the public acrimony that arose Thursday night seeped into Friday. After Pash spoke, outside union lawyer Jim Quinn said: “I hate to say this, but he has not told the truth to our players or our fans. He has, in a word, lied to them about what happened today and what’s happened over the last two weeks and the last two years.”

FroM 8B effortless play.” The frustration for North Iredell as a team appeared most evident in the bottom of the fourth inning, which seemed to last an eternity. In the inning, South scored seven runs and pushed a 10-1 lead to a 17-1 advantage. Also pitching in with productive nights for South were designated hitter Cory Deason, who went 2-for-3 with two runs and a stolen base and second baseman Parker Hubbard, who enjoyed a 1-2 evening with two runs and several great plays in the field. For North Iredell, the one bright spot amidst an other-



wise black hole was pitcher Seth White. White allowed only eight hits, picked ne up himself and scored a run, but in the end, was doomed by the defense behind him. “Seth threw a lot of pitches tonight and I wanted to get him out of there before I did, but he really wasn’t throwing all that bad, guys just weren’t making him look any better,” said Key. South Rowan coach Thad

Chrismon was satisfied. “I wanted our guys to score at least one run in every inning. I told them that the main CHRISMON thing we got from tonight and every game here out is improvement,” he said. South improves its record to 3-1 on the early season. “This game was important, as it is a conference game and every single one of those is crucial, so it is very satisfying to get this one under our belt and hopefully we can continue to work hard in practice, improve and if we do that, then I think this team could really be special,” said Chrismon.

connecticut's Kemba Walker (15) passes away from syracuse's Fab Melo (51)

Kemba, UConn win Associated Press

The Top 25 roundup ... NEW YORK (AP) — Kemba Walker immediately flashed back two full years the moment the buzzer sounded, just like everyone inside Madison Square Garden who remembered that night. Connecticut and Syracuse were headed to overtime in the Big East tournament. Again. This time, there'd be only one. Walker had 33 points and 12 rebounds in another phenomenal performance Friday night, and the No. 21 Huskies held on after blowing a late lead to beat No. 11 Syracuse 7671 in the semifinals — two years after their six-overtime marathon in Manhattan. "I didn't want to go into another six overtimes, I know that," Walker said. "I was mad we went to the first overtime. As soon as the first overtime came, I thought about six. I wanted the win and didn't want to go to another one and another one." Especially with another game to play Saturday night. The ninth-seeded Huskies (25-9) improved to 10-3 in Big East semifinals with their fourth win in four days, and will face No. 4 Notre Dame or No. 14 Louisville for their first title since 2004. "It's tough, but we're ready for the challenge," said Walker, who also had six steals and five assists. "We're mentally tough and we're just going to stay together." Louisville 81, Marquette 56 NEW YORK — Rick Pitino was worried about how his Louisville team would react to the dreaded double-bye in the Big East tournament. Turned out he could have saved all that concern. The third-seeded and 14th-ranked Cardinals used an impressive 3-point effort and some solid defense to beat 11thseeded Marquette 81-56.

BIG TEN INDIANAPOLIS — Forget about that midseason slump — it's business as usual for Michigan State in March. Kalin Lucas scored a career-high 30 points to help the surging Spartans beat No. 9 Purdue 74-56 in the Big Ten tournament quarterfinals. Lucas tied a career high with four 3-pointers for the Spartans (19-13), who greatly improved their chances of receiving an NCAA tournament bid. Michigan State had a 14-11 record on Feb. 15 and was in danger of being left out of the field after reaching the Final Four the past two years. Ohio State 67, Northwestern 61, OT NDIANAPOLIS — For the second straight year, Ohio State barely avoided a stunning upset in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament. Jared Sullinger had 20 points and 18 rebounds as the top-ranked Buckeyes beat Northwestern 67-61 in overtime Friday. Last year, Evan Turner's 37-foot shot at the buzzer lifted Ohio State past rival Michigan. Sullinger shot 2 for 12 from the field but 16 of 18 on free throws. His 18 rebounds fell one short of the tournament record set by Ohio State's Greg Oden in 2007. Michigan 60, Illinois 55 INDIANAPOLIS — Darius Morris scored eight of his 17 points in the final eight minutes Friday, leading Michigan back from a nine-point deficit to beat Illinois 60-55.

CONFERENCE USA EL PASO, Texas — Joe Jackson scored a career-high 24 points as Memphis defeated short-handed East Carolina 7656 in the semifinals of the Conference USA tournament on Friday. Charles Carmouche added 19 points and Will Coleman 11 for the fourth-seeded Tigers (24-9), who face No. 3 seed UTEP in the championship game on Saturday. Darrius Morrow had 25 points and 14 rebounds for No. 8seeded East Carolina (18-15), which was without Brock Young, the C-USA sixth man of the year. The guard was unable to play due to a knee injury suffered against AlabamaBirmingham on Thursday.

BIG 12 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — When in trouble, dial "M" for Morris. It works for No. 2 Kansas almost every time. For one key stretch in the first half Friday night, it was Marcus and Markieff Morris 17, Colorado 4 as the Philadelphia twins almost personally pulled the Jayhawks out of a deep early deficit and led them to a 90-83 victory in the Big 12 tournament semifinals. No. 10 Texas 70, Texas A&M 58 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jordan Hamilton scored 17 points and No. 10 Texas had four players in double figures while beating Texas A&M 70-58 in the Big 12 semifinals Friday night, giving the Longhorns a three-game season sweep of their old rivals.

MOUNTAIN WEST LAS VEGAS — Jimmer Fredette scored a career-high 52 points in No. 8 BYU's 87-76 win over nemesis New Mexico in the Mountain West Conference semifinals Friday night. The nation's leading scorer made sure the Cougars didn't lose to the Lobos for a third time, breaking his own tournament record of 45 points set exactly a year earlier and scoring a career-best 33 points in the first half.

ATLANTIC 10 ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Richmond overcame its worst shooting game of season with one of its best defensive efforts. Now it will get a chance to end Temple's three-year run in the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament and avenge a loss to the Owls in last year's title game. Kevin Anderson scored 21 points and third-seeded Richmond won a defensive battle with Rhode Island, posting a 55-45 victory in the quarterfinals. No. 24 Temple 96, La Salle 76 ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Ramone Moore scored 23 points, Khalif Wyatt had 20 and No. 24 Temple continued to build its boardwalk empire with a 96-76 victory over Philadelphia-rival La Salle in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament.

INDIANAPOLIS — Taylor Battle looked better than anyPenn St. 36 one else on the ugliest Wisconsin 33 night in Big Ten tournament history. The record-breaking guard finished with a team-high nine points Friday, but hit a 3-pointer and a free throw in the closing minutes to lead Penn State past No. 13 Wisconsin 36-33 in the lowest-scoring game in the 14 years of the event. And it wasn’t even close. The previous record low was 85 points, set in 2008 when Wisconsin beat Michigan 51-34. The Badgers have now been involved in four of the tourney’s six lowest-scoring games. The Badgers’ top scorers, Jon Leuer and Jordan Taylor, struggled all night,

and it took nearly 36 minutes for Wisconsin (23-8) to put a third player in the scoring column. Taylor finished with 16 points and, fittingly, missed a potential tying 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds to go. Leuer had 10 points. The third-seeded Badgers, who lost their second straight for the first time in more than two years, were just 15 of 51 from the field and a dismal 2 of 21 from beyond the arc. The No. 6 seed Nittany Lions weren’t much better offensively, and the final score evoked a game from the 1930s or so, decades before there was a shot clock in college basketball. Penn State was 13 of 39 from the field and 3 of 12 from 3-point range. But that was good enough to move into Saturday’s semifinals against another upset winner, Michigan State. The Spartans knocked

The ACC tournament roundup ... GREENSBORO — Demontez Stitt and Clemson finally claimed a victory in a postseason tournament. They hope they’ve done enough to earn a spot in a bigger bracket. Stitt scored 20 points to lead the Tigers past Boston College 70-47 in the quarterfinals of the ACC tournament. Jerai Grant added 12 points and Milton Jennings had 10 to help the fourthseeded Tigers (21-10) snap a six-game losing streak in the postseason that began in the 2008 ACC title game and was followed by one-and-dones in three straight NCAA tournaments and two ACC tournaments. They did it by shooting 45 percent on 23-of-51 shooting and clamping down on one of the ACC’s best 3-point shooting teams, winning a game both teams desperately needed to polish their NCAA tournament profiles and possibly move themselves off the bubble. “I’ve heard ‘elimination game’ for our team the last two games, if not more than that,” coach Brad Brownell said, referring to a seasonending win over fellow bubble team Virginia Tech. “These guys have responded every time and have played exceptionally well, and we’re riding their coattails.” Clemson, which has won two straight and four of five, now faces No. 6 and topseeded North Carolina in one semifinal Saturday. “I would think we made a pretty good showing again today,” Brownell said. “We beat another very good team, and we beat them well, and we played well to do it. Now we’re going to try to take on one of the top teams in the country and give them a good game and see if we can’t find a way to win.” Joe Trapani scored 20 points to lead fifth-seeded BC (20-12). All-ACC guard Reggie Jackson was pestered all day by Stitt and finished with 11 points on 5of-13 shooting.

UNC FROM 1B Yet a frantic rally in the final 8 minutes sent North Carolina on to Saturday’s semifinals against Clemson. “We feel as lucky as we can possibly be,” coach Roy Williams said. “Those kinds of things happen in tournament time.” It was North Carolina’s biggest comeback since rallying from 20 down in the first half to beat Georgia Tech in 2006 and its biggest secondhalf comeback since rallying from 21 down against Florida State in 1993. It is also believed to be the program’s biggest comeback in any ACC tournament game. “That’s the thing about this team: we just keep fighting and fighting,” sophomore John Henson said. “We came back good today, and that’s what we do. I’m just glad we hit some shots.” Zeller came through twice for the Tar Heels in the final minute, first scoring on a hook shot against Reggie Johnson

off No. 9 Purdue 74-56. The Nittany Lions (18-13) opened the game with a statement by making four of their first five shots, scoring 14 straight points and not committing a turnover. And when Tim Frazier drove in for a layup with 9:58 to go, they led 18-2. Wisconsin, meanwhile, looked more like the team that was blown out Sunday at No. 1 Ohio State than a Big Ten contender. The Badgers missed their first eight shots and many weren’t even close. Taylor threw up an airball on a 3pointer and Leuer’s shots repeatedly bounded high into the air. It was just downright ugly. Battle closed it out, scoring on a layup, hitting a 3-pointer to break the school's career scoring record and making one for two free throws to give the Nittany Lions a 36-33 lead.

Boston college's Josh southern (52) drives on clemson's Jerai Grant (45). “They do as good a job as anybody at extending their defense, yet staying disciplined,” BC coach Steve Donahue said. “We’ve had a lot of teams really get in (our faces) and then, all of a sudden, we’re getting by them and we’re getting wide-open shots. It just doesn’t happen against Clemson.” Stitt scored at least 14 points for the ninth straight game. The Tigers made Brownell the winningest first-year coach in school history and won just their fifth ACC tournament game since 1998. Virginia Tech 52, Fla. St. 51 GREENSBORO — Erick Green hit the go-ahead jumper with 4.7 seconds left, while Derwin Kitchen's desperation shot at the buzzer was waved off as Virginia Tech edged Florida State 5251 in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament Friday night. Green was just 1 for 12 from the field for the sixthseeded Hokies (21-10) before taking a feed from Malcolm Delaney and calmly sinking a jumper near the 3-point arc. The third-seeded Seminoles (21-10) called timeout and inbounded to Kitchen, who dribbled into the right corner before launching a fadeaway over a defender at the horn. The ball dropped through the net and the officials initially called it good, sending the Seminoles spilling oncourt to mob Kitchen. Meanwhile, Delaney and Green walked to midcourt with their hands on their heads in disbelief. But officials soon reviewed the replays and reversed the call.

to tie it at 59 with 45.3 seconds left. Then, after a Miami turnover, Marshall penetrated past Julian Gamble and drew Johnson away from Zeller. Marshall’s pass found Zeller almost directly under the basket, and he quickly put it up as Durand Scott rotated down from the foul line in a last-ditch attempt to block the shot. “It’s one of those things that people have made fun of me for not dunking, but it paid off on that possession,” Zeller said. “I just caught it, and I had to shoot it as fast as possible. I knew as soon as I let it go that I had gotten it off in time because I knew the buzzer had gone off after it was out of my hands.” The officials had no doubts either, immediately signaling the basket was good to send the home-state crowd filled with plenty of light blue into a loud roar of delight. The final play gave North Carolina its only lead of the game and left the ninth-seeded Hurricanes (19-14) to walk dejectedly off the court a day after staging their own im-

for the fourth straight year. Duke, which hasn’t lost in the league’s postseason event since the 2008 semifinals, is trying to win its 10th league tournament title in 13 years and ACC-record 19th overall. Krzyzewski called Smith questionable for the semifinals Saturday, and expressed hope that the playmaking guard will be back on the floor by the start of the NCAA tournament. “We’re going to try to make a long run, with or without him,” Krzyzewski said. “If he can’t play (Saturday) — and I’m not saying he won’t play, because I’ll find out later — but if he can’t, or we’re risking something and we have to keep him out, we’ll probably have until Friday if we go to Charlotte to get him with the right type of shoe and stuff like that. “To make a run in the NCAA, you need your players,” Krzyzewski continued. “There’s no question. Nolan has been a player of the year in our conference, so it’s not just losing a player. It’s losing an outstanding player, if we don’t have him.” Smith, the 14th Duke player to win the conference’s top award, was hurt with 6:48 left when he planted in the lane and fell to the court. He did not return, and Krzyzewski said the guard would have X-rays. “I’m sure he’ll be fine,” teammate Ryan Kelly said. “Nolan’s a warrior and he’ll be ready to go.” Still, the injury couldn’t help but evoke memories of the injured toe that has kept freshman point guard Kyrie Irving out for the past three months. Coincidentally, Irving was seen jogging, shuffling and shooting around about 90 minutes before tipoff in uniform shorts and sneakers. He was dressed in street clothes and topsiders for the game. “He’s not going to magically appear tomorrow or anything like that because he hasn’t done anything with the team,” Krzyzewski said. “But it’s coming along great.” Smith was having a rough night before he was injured. He missed his first

probable comeback, rallying from 10 down in the final minute to force overtime and beat Virginia in the first round. While Zeller finished with 13 points, the Tar Heels managed just 14 points in the paint and had to rely on the outside shooting that had looked shaky for much of February. But Harrison Barnes (18 points) hit four of North Carolina’s 10 3-pointers — with seven coming in the second half — while Leslie McDonald had 11 points and three 3s as part of a smaller lineup. Compare that to the first half, when the Tar Heels were so bad that Williams subbed in five walk-ons for his top players at the 12:15 mark. They sat on the bench and quickly found themselves confronted by an angry Williams, who had dropped to one knee and launched into an angry and animated rant. The tirade continued during a TV timeout less than a minute later, with Williams pointing at his players and pumping his fist before putting his starters back in at the 10:38 mark. “I used my allotment of bad

seven shots and finished with seven points on 2-of-11 shooting with five turnovers and only two assists. “Nolan wasn’t having his normal outstanding game, and then he gets hurt,” Krzyzewski said. “I thought after he got hurt, for the last eight minutes of the game, our guys were incredibly tough.” Jordan Williams had 16 points and 16 rebounds to lead the seventh-seeded Terrapins (19-14), who kept things tight for much of the second half and pulled to 6360 on Dino Gregory’s layup with 10:15 remaining. Singler hit a driving layup with just under 9 minutes left to start the decisive surge. Duke reeled off nine straight points, and outscored Maryland 11-1 over a 41/2-minute span as part of the 24-9 run it rode to an 18-point lead in the final minute. “We played pretty well for 35 or 36 minutes tonight,” Gregory said. “In order to beat a team like Duke, the No. 5-ranked team in the country, you’ve got to play 40 minutes strong. We weren’t able to do that tonight.” Singler picked up the slack for his fellow senior, hitting 10 of 15 shots to finish one point shy of his career high. Seth Curry, who helped shoulder the burden at point guard following Smith’s injury, converted a momentum-building threepoint play during the run. “I was just concerned for Nolan. I didn’t feel any pressure, and I wasn’t worried,” Singler said. “I just hoped that he didn’t get seriously hurt.” Curry and Kelly both finished with 11 points while Miles Plumlee had 10. Kelly, who earlier in the season made 18 consecutive shots over a four-game span, had a near-perfect shooting night — hitting all five of his attempts from the field but missing his only try from the free-throw line. “I got a couple of open looks and just knocked them down,” Kelly said. Kelly’s 3 with 31⁄2 minutes left broke a 31-all tie and started Duke’s 11-2 run that closed the half. Singler’s drive down the lane with 4 seconds to go gave the Blue Devils a 42-33 lead at the break. But until midway through the second half, the Terrapins never let them pull too far ahead.

words for the month today,” Williams said. Meanwhile, the Hurricanes played with confident ease. They closed the first half on an 11-2 run to take a 31-22 lead at the break, then pushed the margin to 53-34 on Johnson’s layup with 9:52 to play. But the Tar Heels had a series of four 3s in a 2-minute span to cut a 16-point deficit to 55-51 with 5:13 left. Then, after Zeller tied it, Miami gave it back to the Tar Heels when Adrian Thomas couldn’t handle a pass from Malcolm Grant and fumbled it out of bounds with 18.6 seconds left. North Carolina shot 56 percent and had just six turnovers following the break after committing 14 in the first half, while Miami shot just 32 percent after halftime. “We missed some wideopen shots and we took some ill-advised shots,” Miami coach Frank Haith said. “We just weren’t taking good shots. ... We missed some bunnies around the hoop, and that was part of it. You’ve got to make those plays.” Grant scored 16 points to lead the Hurricanes.

Cavaliers team up for no-hitter BY RYAN BISESI

SPENCER — In an effort to keep his team’s no-hitN. Rowan 10 ter in tact, North 0 Rowan shortstop G. Stone Dakota Brown turned to his left, leapt off his foot and fired to second base in the last out in the top of the fifth. The throw, like everything else Brown and his teammates did against Gray Stone, was on target, completing a dazzling effort for the forceout as he displayed the same

NPC rout

accuracy as he did throwing a scoreless frame in the previous inning. Brown’s all-everything night, which included a pair of hits and stolen bases, ended with scoring the winning run on a sac fly in the bottom of the inning, completing a 10-0, five-inning victory for the Cavaliers. North had five pitchers team up to throw a no-hit shutout as Josh Price, Dusty Agner, Matt Laurens, Brown and Tyler Blume all pitched worry-free innings as the Cavs kicked off a busy sports weekend for North fans. “I kind of got a late jump on it,



but I got it,” said Brown of his defensive gem, which was as close as Gray Stone got to a hit. “I was pretty much throwing from my knees.” Devin Russell hit one between

third and short that required Brown hustle to his right and throw in the opposite direction. “That was a heck of a play,” North coach Aaron Rimer said. “One shot to get ’em and he fielded it clean and threw it clean. That’s a great play.” No matter who North put on the mound, they kept the Knights out of harm’s way, not letting a runner into scoring position. The Cavs showed little rust from not having played in a week in the early-season clash. After having its showdown with Lexington postponed earlier in the

week, North (2-1) saw a chance to get most of its hurlers some work in against the Knights (0-3). “We got rained out against Lexington and I told them they were going to get some work in,” Rimer said. “Give me what you got that one inning.” The Cav pitchers were two walks short of a perfect game and generally overpowered Gray Stone, with the Knights not forcing more than 17 pitches in an inning. Price, a senior and staff ace, start-



South wins the battle of Raiders BY JORDAN HONEYCUTT

LANDIS —South Rowan lived to its S. Rowan 17 name last N. Iredell 1 night as it “raided” North Iredell with a 17-1 assault in five innings. The popping of the gloves and pinging of the bats were the only signs of baseball season, as the weather produced a more football-like frigid and windy atmosphere. South took advantage of the gusts as they hammered three long balls off North Iredell pitching. Preston Penninger was the star of stars as he crushed two of the aforementioned homers in addition to his excellent perPENNINGER formance on the mound, alowing only one run on four hits and striking out seven. “I just got out in front of a curveball on the first one that I didn’t think was gone, but the second one was a belt-high, down-the-middle fastball that I knew I hit pretty well,” said Penninger. Penninger was missing his spots and falling behind early in the opening inning as the “other” Raiders smacked three consecutive sharply-hit singles that plated an early run and it appeared that the home crowd may be in for a tough night, that is, before Penninger shut the door and the hit parade began. “I got behind in the first and didn’t get on top of guys like I usually do, but luckily was able to settle down in the later innings and use my curveball better,” said Penninger South capitalized on a North Iredell infield reminiscent of a “Bad News Bears” movie. Eight of the 17 runs scored by South were unearned. Assisting Penninger in victory were left-fielder Matt Miller, who belted the other homer and scored two runs, and MILLER catcher Eric Tyler, who was walked all four plate appearances and also chipped in a pair of runs. After the game, a visibly frustrated and dejected North Iredell coach Danny Key said, “I told our guys that we have absolutely got to change the culture of this program. “I’m not going to sit around here all year long and watch this kind of effort. I will not accept poor work habits and

hotographer Wayne Wrights loves old churches. “If I see an old church when I’m traveling, I’ll stop,” he says. “There is something magnetic about them,” he says. He likes to imagine how and why they began. “Were they an offshoot from another church? Were they just started by pioneer settlers? I am sure if they could talk they would have many stories to tell us.” He not only shoots churches in this area but loves to travel to New England, where he can capture images of older churches, including the Old First Church in Bennington Vermont, built in 1762. It’s where the poet Robert Frost is buried. He normally shoots churches in black and white for a nostalgic look. He uses a digital camera that has been converted so that it uses only infrared film, which has the potential to imbue photos with an almost unearthly feel. Since he is trying to achieve a timeless effect, Wrights shoots from angles that exclude jarring modern touches, such as telephone lines. He prefers to let people see the church as it looked when it was first built. He’s often drawn to white, clapboard-type churches — the “old-time religion” churches that are typically smaller and family-oriented. Wrights himself grew up attending Boyer’s Chapel Church of Christ in Clemmons, where he still attends. The image Wrights took of Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Boyden Quarters is striking. Wrights passed the Mount Ulla church one day on his way to another church and noticed the moon coming up. He came back in the afternoon and captured a dramatic image. “I used the cross as a symbol pointing to the heavens above. To me, everything is pointing to the heavens,” he says. He notes that the image is a “straight” shot with no manipulations in camera or software. The infrared film is what makes the sky look black instead of blue — and provides the contrast that makes the photo so visually arresting. Grace Lower Stone Church in Rockwell has also attracted Wrights’ attention. Organized about 1745, it’s one of the oldest churches in North Carolina. It’s built of irregular field stone with a 12-foot gable roof. The walls measure 32 inches thick at ground level. Wrights has also turned his artist’s eye to Knox Chapel United Methodist Church, located in Cleveland. The church was built


This photograph of Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Boyden Quarters is a dramatic study in contrast.

This photograph of Knox Chapel United Methodist Church in Cleveland was taken using infrared film. in 1894 and is the oldest United Methodist structure in the county. Organ Lutheran Church in eastern Rowan County also has a long history. The oldest part was built in the 1790s and is sometimes referred to as “Zion Lutheran Church.” Wrights’ photographs are in corporate collections, museums, and galleries as well as many homes and small businesses across North and South Carolina. • • • To see more of Wayne Wrights’ photography, go to www.

NC Council of Churches gives highest award to Rowan County church for health efforts Prospect Presbyterian Church, 9425 W. NC Hwy 152 in Mooresville, has achieved the North Carolina Council of Churches’ first Gold Certification for the congregation’s commitment to better health. The Rev. Joanne Hull serves as Prospect’s pastor with Sybil Perrell, RN, as the parish nurse for this rural church in the edge of Western Rowan County. Prospect Presbyterian has been a leader in the surrounding community since the 1800s and continues to find innovative ways to service the congregation and

community. Their commitment to a Holistic approach to health is another way they have chosen to do this. The Council – a statewide organization committed to the twin goals of ecumenism and social justice – developed a new health initiative in April of 2009 called Partners in Health and Wholeness (PHW). The mission of PHW is to promote health as a practice of faith and to ultimately improve the health of clergy and congregants through increased physical activity, proper nutrition and tobacco use prevention and cessation.

Congregations from different denominations and geographic areas across the state are “exercising” their faith by acknowledging that their bodies are the temple of God and by participating in the PHW Certification Program. In January 2010, the first level of certification, bronze, was unveiled which requires congregations to name a health contact person to take the lead on health promotion, maintain tobacco-free buildings and serve healthier church meals. Then, in January, silver and gold certifications were

announced – each of which include more advanced activities such as growing a community garden, getting involved in health advocacy at the local, state and national levels and preaching one or more times a year on health as a faith issue. As the Council’s first gold certification recipient, Prospect Presbyterian has successfully demonstrated its commitment to better health by • hosting Health Awareness Sundays on which they

Pastors Rhodes Woolly and Jan Huntley and area musicians will be offering brief Lenten services of music and meditation during the lunch hour on three consecutive Mondays this month, held in St. John’s Chapel at 200 W. Innes St., on Monday, March 14, 21, and 28 from 12:15-12:45 p.m. The services will include prayer and meditation led by the St. John’s pastors, and special music by Tim Truemper, hammered dulcimer (March 14); Gretchen Tracy, cello (March 21); Rosemary Kinard, flute and Rob Durocher, piano (March 28). Tim Truemper, a native of Texas, moved to Salisbury in 1988, and is a clinical psychologist working for the state of North Carolina in early childhood services. He taught himself to play the hammered dulcimer, using his years of musical experience as a guitarist and trumpet player. His handmade instrument was crafted for him by Spears Instrument Company, a local custom musical instrument maker. Gretchen Tracy, born in New York and raised in Charlotte, began playing the cello at age 12, was a member of the Charlotte Symphony at age 15, and has received degrees from East Carolina and Eastern Illinois Universities. She has played in numerous orchestras and string ensembles, including locally the Charlotte Symphony, the Salisbury Symphony, Carolina Baroque, and the Catawba String Quartet. Gretchen also moonlights as a five-string banjo player with local bluegrass bands. Rosemary Kinard is associate parish musician at St. John’s, after having retired in 2007 from her 20 years as head of the choral program at Catawba College. She accompanies the Chancel Choir, and directs three ensembles. She has recently re-discovered her love of the flute, which she plays frequently for worship at St. John’s. Rob Durocher is director of music ministries at St. John’s where he administers the music program of 18 choirs and ensembles. He is an organist and composer, and is active in the NC Synod where he serves on the Candidacy and Worship and Music Committees. Born in Texas and raised in New Jersey, he came to St. John’s in 1998, after having served churches in Gastonia and Ramsey, NJ.

Readers offer alternative causes of chronic cough Get it in the Dear Dr. Gott: In January, your column responded to a 19-year-old who had a chronic cough for 16 months. I, too, had a chronic cough whenever I sat, stood, laughed, was around smoke or after exercising. It lasted more than 15 months. My other symptom was hoarseness with a sensation of something in the back of my throat. I had been put on prescription cough syrups and pills. I had also tried some of the same medicines that were menin your DR. PETER tioned column, inGOTT cluding those for asthma, acid reflux and allergies. I was asked about acid reflux but hadn’t had the usual symptoms for it. I saw an allergist and a pulmonologist. I had a chest X-ray, allergy tests, CT scans of my sinuses, breathing tests and a bronchial scope. While awaiting an appointment with yet another doctor about the cough, I had my yearly pap test, and blood was also found in my stool. I was set up to have a colonoscopy with the new physician. Before the testing, I told him about my other symptoms, and he told me he would do an EGD (esophagogastroduodenoscopy) at the same time. The results of the EGD showed that I have Barrett’s esophagus, resulting from acid reflux. It was also found that the blood in my stool was coming from my esophagus. I underwent a laparoscopic fun-

doplication, with a full wrap of the stomach around the lower-esophageal sphincter. My first EGD was done in 2008, the surgery was in 2009; a second EGD was done in 2010, and I now won’t need another one until 2012. I just thought I would send this information so you could possibly pass it on to the person in your column. Dear Reader: Since that article appeared, I have received several letters regarding readers’ experiences. Yours was not the only to suggest Barrett’s esophagus and acid reflux as a possible cause. Barrett’s esophagus is a relatively uncommon condition affecting about 1 percent of American adults. It is most commonly diagnosed in those age 50 or older and in those who have acid reflux. Men are twice as likely to develop the condition as are women, with Caucasian men most affected. It causes the lining of the esophagus to change so that it resembles the lining of the intestine. It is most commonly associated with reflux symptoms but by itself does not cause signs. Rarely, sufferers may develop a fatal type of esophageal cancer. Barrett’s may be present for many years before this cancer, known as esophageal adenocarcinoma, develops. Unfortunately, it often isn’t detected until late stages, when

treatment is not very effective. Other readers also related their experiences. One found it was caused by certain cholesterol medications. Another determined it was caused by ingesting gluten. Someone else discovered that toothpastes containing sodium lauryl sulfate (which I have written about in regards to mouth sores/ulcers) caused hers. Someone else suggested Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency. This is a genetic condition that results in emphysema. It is rare, affecting only about 1 percent or 2 percent of all emphysema sufferers. People who have the condition are at high risk of developing emphysema. Smoking increases that risk and often causes emphysema to occur at an early age (30 to 40). A final suggestion was cardiac abnormalities. Heartrhythm abnormalities, congestive heart failure and more can all result in coughing. If, after appropriate pulmonary and blood tests fail to identify a cause for chronic cough, cardiac evaluation becomes a logical next step. If there is a strong family history of cardiac problems, this should rise up the list of possible causes. As you can see, cough is a fairly broad symptom and can be the result of a wide range of health issues. United FeatUre Syndicate

shorter hand BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

Irving Cohen said, “Truth is shorter than fiction.” There is a truth in bridge involving “shorter” — it is highlighted by this deal. How would you try to make two diamonds after West leads the heart queen? Your response was the modern one-no-trump forcing, which is used in conjunction with two-over-one game-forcing. With a minimum balanced hand, opener rebid in his three-card minor. Then you continued with two diamonds, showing a weak hand with a long suit. (Note that one no-trump goes down three with best

defense.) In a suit contract, count your losers by looking at your 13 cards and taking dummy’s honors into account. Here, you have two in hearts, one or two in diamonds and two in clubs. If East has a diamond honor,

‘Spider-Man’ to shut down in April, new opening NEW YORK (AP) — Producers of Broadway’s troubled “Spider-Man” musical say the show will shut down for a few weeks in the spring to overhaul the show. Lead producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris said in a statement Friday that “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” would officially

open June 14. The show has been in previews for more than 100 performances and has delayed opening six times. Preview performances will be canceled from April 19May 11. Producers said ticket-holders will be able to either exchange or return their tickets for a refund.


you can probably get home, losing only one trump trick. But if West has both high diamonds, you are in danger. However, whenever you have a side suit with more cards in your hand than on the board, think about ruffing a loser in the shorter-trump hand. Take the first trick with dummy’s heart ace, play a heart to your king, and lead another heart. Suppose West wins and plays his last heart. You ruff with dummy’s diamond jack and are safe, whether East could overruff or not.

WEATHER UNDERGROUND’S NATIONAL WEATHER Snow and rain diminish across the Northeast, while wet weather returns to the Northwest on Saturday. A low pressure system in the Northeast will continue moving out of the region and into Quebec. The region will see a short break in wet weather as another low pressure system follows closely behind. The system strengthened as it moved off the Northern Rockies and into the Northern Plains, where it brought blizzard conditions to the Dakotas. This system will continue skirting along the US and Canadian border, bringing light and scattered snow showers to the Great Lakes region. Snowfall accumulation will remain less than an inch in most areas. Meanwhile, in the West, a low pressure system spinning off the coast of British Colombia and the Pacific Northwest will make its way onshore on Saturday. While the system will trigger scattered rain and high elevation snow showers over western Washington and Oregon, the system will also produce a cold front that will extend into northern California. Expect rain showers to turn to snow showers behind the front. Snow levels will drop to 3,500 feet across the Cascades, while the northern Sierras will see snow above 6,000 feet. Near the coast and lower levels will see between a half of an inch and an inch of rain.

Hardwoods in unlikely places (ARA) - The no-no’s about using hardwood near a water source are vanishing. And while allowing water to rest on a wooden surface for extended periods will always be a no-no, the American Hardwood Information Center, finds that more design professionals are saying yes to client requests for the warmth, charm and richness of natural wood no matter where it’s used — in the bath, the kitchen and even the basement. “I recently designed a bathroom that was all hardwood,” reports Douglas Wright of Miller & Wright Architects in New York City. “The only place we used stone was in the shower. Everything else was maple - floor, walls, ceiling.” What about the inevitable splashing that baths are prone to? But remember - it’s important to always dry splashes immediately. With normal use and proper cleaning, these surfaces should last indefinitely. Wright adds that for greater dampness protection, “We applied several coats of matte polyurethane. If water splatters out of the sink or shower, it doesn’t stain anything and with that low-luster finish, the wood looks completely natural.” For a New Hampshire kitchen, Wright designed a maple backsplash and counter. Wood as a kitchen work surface “seemed kind of crazy at the time,” he says, “but it turned out beautifully.” His only caveat: Use a cutting board to avoid possible scratches or scars. To extend the durability of any work surface, a protective sealer is always wise. “Applying three coats of polyurethane to hardwood allows the rich, warm color to come through and you don’t have to worry about the surface,” Wright says. “It resists water and cleans easily - just wipe up the splashes and spills.” Other pros agree. Indianapolis kitchen and interior designer Janice Pattee had no qualms about specifying a walnut countertop for the peninsula in a kitchen makeover. “The cabinets were white-painted maple. For contrast, the client chose grained wood.” She particularly loved the double-ogee edge that made the peninsula look like fine furniture. Though it’s mainly a breakfast bar, it often serves


as auxiliary work space. In another kitchen remodel, Mark T. White of Kitchen Encounters in Annapolis, used another elegant hardwood to create the circular extension to a stone countertop and the top of a rectangular island. “The clients chose cherry because of its color and grain,” he says. “The surfaces were lightly stained for color uniformity, then a top coat and sealer were applied - four coats in all. Of course we urged using cutting boards and trivets, to prevent possible damage from sharp knives or hot pots.” The flooring, which flows into a formal dining room and a casual family room, is oak with a light- to medium-brown stain. “In an open kitchen like this,” says White, “if we’d switched to tile or some other surface, the floor would’ve become an awkward interruption. And people prefer hardwood to tile or other kitchen flooring materials. It’s generally more comfortable on the legs and feet, and more forgiving if you drop something.” New York City interior designer John A. Buscarello is particularly proud of the wood-enhanced basement he completed in a Long Island home. Dampness was a potential problem because the space was mostly below grade. “The white oak floor is over a plywood subfloor that was built above a liquid vapor barrier applied to the concrete,” Buscarello says. “Several coats of polyurethane were applied to the oak, so the surface is protected and can be cleaned with a damp or dry mop.” Architect Wright designed a wine cellar entirely of oak for a Southampton homeowner. With a floor of dark-stained oak and the walls and ceiling of limed oak, Wright confesses, “I’d never done a wine cellar where every surface was hardwood. When considering wood in areas like this, it’s important to make sure the homeowners know what to expect in terms of maintenance and durability. There’s always a little humidity in a wine cellar, but once you’ve protected the surfaces with a vapor barrier, they’re fine.” The consensus among design professionals, then, is that you

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS The earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on Friday forced multinational companies to close factories, fight fires and move workers, inflicting at least short-term damage on the Japan’s fragile economy. Trains stopped, flights were grounded and phone service was disrupted or cut off. U.S. companies DuPont and Procter & Gamble said communications problems made it hard to gauge the effect on their operations. The benchmark Nikkei index fell 1.7 percent, and the Japanese market was only open for about 15 minutes after the quake. Americans are using the extra money in their paychecks from tax cuts to buy new cars, clothing, sporting goods and electronics. The reduction in Social Security taxes helped lift retail sales for the eighth straight month in February and by the largest amount since the fall. Retail sales rose 1 percent last month, the Commerce Department said. Shoppers returned to department stores after snow storms kept many away in January. And they flooded car lots to take advantage of deals.

Governments advertised far fewer jobs in January, offering the latest sign that cuts at the state and local level could slow hiring this year. There were 2.76 million job openings at the end of January, the Labor Department said. That’s down by 161,000, or 5.5 percent, from December’s revised total. Half of the decline was the result of fewer state and local government positions. Available jobs in the private sector declined 1.8 percent, to 2.45 million. Professional and business services, which include accountants, lawyers and temporary jobs, reported a sharp drop. Openings also dipped in education and health care. Businesses added to their stockpiles in January for a 13th consecutive month and total sales rose by the largest amount in 10 months. Business inventories rose 0.9 percent in January, the Commerce Department said. Sales for all businesses at the manufacturing, wholesale and retail level increased 2 percent, the seventh consecutive gain and the largest since March. Gains in sales and inventory restocking should translate into strong orders for factories.
