Bridge name may honor veterans Steen hoping to file bill for county’s 12,000 members of armed services BY KARISSA MINN



SALISBURY — N.C. Rep. Fred Steen says he hopes to file a bill soon that would name the new interstate bridge being built over the Yadkin River in honor of veterans. Steen, a Republican from Rowan County, said Thursday he is working on gathering co-sponsors for the legislation and is trying to set up a meeting with Gov. Bev Perdue to seek her support. “I think it’s a great idea,” Steen said. “Everybody’s going to call it the STEEN Yadkin River Bridge, but if we can call it the Yadkin River Veterans Memorial Bridge, that would send a message that we honor our veterans.” He was approached about naming the bridge several months ago by Rowan County veteran Rodney Cress, who said it would be a good way to honor the county’s JON C. lAKey/SALISBURY POST


Baron Wright plays a piano after the concert at Granite Quarry Elementary, where he performed a violin solo during the song he composed.

Wright brothers top-flight musicians BY SARAH CAMPBELL

‘Fighting for Our Country’ is Baron’s original composition that won the state PTA Reflections for this work.

RANITE QUARRY — Students in the after school strings program at Granite Quarry Elementary performed a song that few have heard before Wednesday. The class played Baron Wright’s “Fighting for Our Country” during the spring concert. Baron Wright isn’t a famous composer, at least not yet. He’s a 9-year-old Faith Elementary School student who’s been writing music since the age of 6, when he began his first piano lessons. “At certain times I just have this feeling that I want to write a song and I’ll just go over and play something,” he Alden Wright, right, notates music for Baron. said.


But Baron doesn’t do it completely by himself. His brother, Alden Wright, 13, notates the music for him. He joined the string ensemble on piano during the song’s performance Tuesday. Alden said no one ever sat down and taught him how to notate music. It’s just something he picked up. “I just kind of figured it out from reading so much

music and just looking at it,” he said. Alden, who also plays trumpet in the Southeast Middle School concert band, dabbles in composition as well. Diane Freeman, the boys’ piano teacher, said they have excelled since they began taking lessons with her three

No upset bids come in for mall SALISBURY — No one offered an upset bid for the Salisbury Mall by the 5 p.m. deadline Thursday, meaning it is now owned by the lender. At an auction earlier this month, Wells Fargo Bank bid about $10.3 million for the property, which went into foreclosure Nov. 9 after Florida investors Sam and Simone Spiegel defaulted on a $19.7 million loan. Samco Properties, a commercial real estate company the Spiegels founded, bought the mall in 2003 but had not made a loan payment since July 2009, according to foreclosure documents. In North Carolina, Samco owns Marketplace Mall in Winston-Salem, Westgate Plaza in Durham and Forest Ridge Shopping Center in Asheville, according to the company website. Wells Fargo has acted as trustee for the registered loan holders, Credit Suisse First Boston Mortgage Securities Corp. Mooresville attorney Kevin Donaldson, the substitute trustee in the foreclosure process, said that no one submitted a higher bid, the sale would be closed and the deed transferred to the bank. The auction was postponed three times — in December, January and February — at the request of Donaldson on behalf of the holder, court documents said. The mall, at the intersection of Statesville and Jake Alexander boulevards, remains open for business. 11B 5B 10B 10B

years ago. “They just latched on to it so quickly. It’s like the more I introduced to them, the more they wanted to learn,” she said. “They started composing right off the bat. “Not the average student sits down and composes music.” • • • Baron first stepped into the spotlight when he won the 2009-10 PTA Reflections spotlight for “Fighting for Our Country,” which he originally wrote for piano. After beating out the county competition, he claimed the top prize in the state from out of 5,000 entries. Susan Trivette, education director for the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra, decided to arrange the piece for string instruments after hearing it. “The melody is exceptional,” she said. “The ending is most effective. It’s four notes at the end that leave you hanging.” Trivette said winning the state PTA Reflections contest is not an easy feat. “It’s a real accomplishment to compose a song,” she said. Martha Smith, the after school strings instructor at Granite Quarry, said she was surprised by how complex “Fighting for Our County” is, considering the fact that Baron wrote it at age 6. “I was amazed at the chords and the structure,” she said. “He has harmony, chords, unique rhythm and form — that requires higher-level thinking skills.” Smith said the piece is “haunting,” with more mature sounds. Linda Jones, executive director of the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra, said she was “knocked out” when she heard the ensemble perform Baron’s song. “It was wonderful, it really caught my heart in a way,” she said. “It has a surprise when the notes dipped down low, it was like he dipped down into your soul

participating in HUD’s Housing Choice Voucher Program increase their education or gain marketable skills that will enable them to obtain jobs that pay a living wage. “This program is absolutely critical in today’s economy,” said Ed Jennings Jr., HUD Southeast regional administrator. “The research demonstrates that this program works. When families are given the tools they need to move beyond the voucher program, they do. Ultimately, they become selfsufficient and more vouchers become available for other families, some who have been waiting for long periods to receive housing assistance. For America to win the future we need a trained and skilled workforce.” The funding allows local housing authorities to hire coordinators or caseworkers to link adults in the Housing Choice Voucher program to local organizations that provide services such as job training, childcare, and job placement. Participants sign a contract that requires the head of the household to get a job and the family will no longer receive welfare assistance at the end of the five-year term. As the family’s income rises, a portion of that increased income is deposited in an interest-bearing escrow account. If the family completes its contract, the family receives the escrow funds that can be used for any purpose, including paying educational expenses, starting a business or paying back debts. The program not new. A new report just issued by HUD and conducted from 2005 to 2009 shows the financial benefits are substantial for participants who remain and complete the program, the press release said.

Cress, a local veterans’ advocate, sent out an e-mail seeking support for the renaming and the honor that would come with it. “This bridge will be here hopefully for generations to come, and everyone who crosses CRESS will remember a veteran if only for a brief moment,” he wrote. Steen said he’s heard from a number of local elected officials who support the renaming. He hopes to get the governor’s office to help with navigating the criteria the Department of Transportation has for naming state roads. He called the renaming a “grass-root effort” that has picked up steam in recent weeks, and he urged local residents to contact his office and the office of the governor to show their support.

“I think if they see the popularity of this request, maybe they’ll work with us,” he said. The state has named most of the interstate system Blue Star Memorial Highways in honor of veterans, Steen said. Some other highways, including U.S. 70, also carry that designation. “The problem is, nobody knows it,” he said. “But with the high concentration of veterans we have in Rowan County due to the VA hospital being in Rowan, I think it’s a good idea to consider that for the bridge that connects our county to the rest of the world, so to speak.”

naming. Sides said he’d “rather it be named after the veterans than after some politician” or another individual. “I just think it’s an honor for a group that often doesn’t get as much recognition as they deserve,” Mitchell said. “They certainly have sacrificed enough for our country to be remembered every time someone drives over that bridge.”

at that point.” Trivette, who oversees the after school strings program for the Salisbury Symphony, said this week is the first time she’s ever seen a group perform a piece a student composed. “It’s unique that it happened,” she said. Smith said in her nine years as an after school strings instructor she’s seen her fair share of talent, but Baron is unique. “I haven’t had one student like him before. I’ve had some really good players, but not composers,” she said. • • • Baron decided to pick up violin after he started listening to country music on the radio. “I liked the sound of the violin, so it made me want to play,” he said. Smith said although Baron’s only been playing the violin since October, she’s noticed his natural talent. “He can pretty much sight-read every piece you put in front of him with only a few mistakes,” she said. “He’s got a really good ear and sense of rhythm.” • • • Tammy Wright said she’s not sure where her sons got their musical bone. “Neither one of us play the piano,” she said. “Their dad plays the guitar, but doesn’t read music.” Alden said both of his grandmothers took piano lessons growing up, but their grandmother Pat Payne said she never learned how to play quite like them. “They picked it up so fast, in no time they were playing so well,” Payne said. Wright said the boys’ love of music sparked when they received a keyboard for Christmas years ago. “Right away they loved it and wanted to take lessons,” she said. Freeman said the boys branched out to other instruments after discovering their interest in music. Smith said Baron has taken his violin lessons very seriously, refusing to put tape on his fingerboard as a guide. “He just wanted to

FRIDAY March 25, 2011


Memories are part of our collective humanity spend a lot of time with a camera by my side and a pen or a computer nearby. As a journalist, I stay ready to record what I see, what I hear, what’s happening in the world around me. It’s a job I take seriously, and something I love, and I think I’m good at capturing people’s lives and experiences in words. But I am not a HUGH very good photograFISHER pher. The pro-grade camera I use for the Post is a loaner. What skills I have, I picked up along the way. When I met Julie Keels a few years ago, she amazed me with her ability to capture an image that told a story. She had a talent for creating pictures that captured the life of the world in front of her. When she died Tuesday evening, gone far too soon at the age of 28, I felt as if one of my best friends had died, even though no one would say we were very close. Reading Shelley Smith’s article in yesterday’s paper, I saw how many people’s lives Julie touched — even those who knew her for only a short time. Except for short messages on Facebook, she and I hadn’t really spoken for about a year. I first met Julie when I started going to the coffee shop where she was working, about six years ago. I was working on my degree and holding down a couple of part-time jobs. She was an art-school student looking toward a bigger career behind the camera lens. Julie was someone who stood out in the lives of those who knew her. She had a keen sense of humor, a passion and drive for the things she cared about. In the hours after the car crash, her friends reached out to create an online group, asking for prayers and support. Within hours, hundreds were there — some who had never met Julie before, some (like me) whose lives had only intersected with hers for a short time. And some — her close friends and family, who knew her much better than I — who feel her absence terribly. The loss of a friend, a loved one, a colleague, a classmate. Ripples that reach out and remind us of how valuable those memories are, those moments spent together. I don’t know that I have much right to write about Julie’s life. Plenty of people knew her better, were closer to her than I was. What I know is that the people we care for, those we meet in the course of our busy lives, are a part of who we are. All of the images we capture — family, friends and the places we know — are part of the lives we live. They make us who we are. No matter how deep and binding the friendship, no matter the length of time or the distance in between. So I say, celebrate the people you know. Remember those who form a part of your life, for however brief a time. It can all end too soon and suddenly, leaving only photographs and memories behind. For a while, I know that when I pick up that borrowed camera, I’m going to think of Julie. I’m going to remember the times we shared, the laughs we had, the images she captured. All of them parts of a much bigger collage, too big to comprehend. Hugh Fisher is a freelance reporter and educator. He has been a correspondent for the Post since 2003.

Exhibits were wide-ranging, including everything from religious influences in star Wars to freemasonry.

SALISBURY — Students at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College explored religious practices ranging from Islam to Confucianism to the gospel according to Harry Potter this week. “I think it’s good to learn about new religions even if you’re not searching for one,” student Aaron Hancock Sr. said. Five religion studies classes, taught by instructor Michelle Lyerly-Wiener, put together projects for the third annual Religious Diversity Exhibit. “The idea is that we are promoting religious diversity and tolerance,” she LYERLY-WIENER said. “We’re not by any means out to convert anybody to anything, it’s more or less to raise awareness that there are these other religions out there.” Lyerly-Wiener said students pick their own topics and get to work within weeks of starting the class. Displays range from cardboard tri-folds to elaborate structures like the one built by Hancock. Hancock constructed a temple, similar to the one in Salt Lake City to pay homage to his roots. “I’m a Latter-day Saint so I wanted to make something that meant something to me,” he said. Student Tamara Marlowe’s project focused on cults. “I’ve always been interested in the way people give their whole life to something and give up control of life or death,” she said.


Veterans check out options for college BY KARISSA MINN

SALISBURY — Local veterans learned about educational opportunities Thursday at a fair at the W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center. “The mission is to make available to veterans the programs they may be interested in to use their GI benefits,” said Frank Lobagnia, a physician at the Salisbury medical center. He said the goal is to make the education fair, which involved three dozen North Carolina colleges and universities this year, an annual event. Many veterans are eligible for education and training benefits for 10 years (15 years if they served post-9/11) after an honorable discharge under GI Bill programs. Salisbury resident Charles Ward served in the U.S. Army from 1974-76, so he falls outside that limit. But under a vocational rehabilitation and employment program, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs pays veterans like Ward with a service-related disability to go back to college. Ward said Thursday he used to have a career in justice administration as a probation officer, but “I can’t do that stuff anymore.” He said he wants to get a master’s degree in sociology so he can work in counseling and help other veterans like him. Lobognia said many other current and former service members have shown a lot of interest in the fair, which has grown. The first

(bill) Hefner Va Medical Center. educational fair was held in 2009 with representatives about 25 schools, he said. This year, about 35 schools were involved, thanks in part to a partnership with the University of North Carolina OneStop Center at Fort Bragg. The One-Stop Center, hosted by Fayetteville State University, helps connect active military personnel and veterans with UNC schools. Tony Miller, a medical center employee who helped organize the education fair, said some veterans don’t use their benefits because they don’t know what’s available to them. “There are so many adult learning programs,” Miller said. “Instead

of doing traditional college, if they’re working, they can do both.” Distance learning is another option. A Web portal called eLearningNC helps North Carolinians find online education opportunities. Kay Zimmerman, associate vice provost of distance education at N.C. State University, said the portal can direct people to one of the 300 community college programs or 262 UNC system programs available online.

SALISBURY — A local boy is recovering well after surgery to correct a heart problem that has affected him since birth. Jacob Riley Usher, 3, was featured in the Salisbury Post’s coverage of World Down Syndrome Day on Monday. He underwent surgery Tuesday morning at Brenner Children’s Hospital in Winston-Salem. Doctors replaced a defective heart valve USHER with a donor valve and repaired a hole in his heart. Linda Smith Hawkins, the boy’s grandmother, said the operation took about nine hours. “He is doing pretty good,” she said on Thursday. She said doctors have told the family that, depending on his progress, he will probably be released from the hospital the week after next. It’s still unclear, however, how much additional time will be needed before Jacob can return to his class at Partners In Learning. Norma Honeycutt, director of Partners in Learning, said staff of the child care center had been getting updates from Usher’s family. “We were thrilled, absolutely thrilled with his progress,” Honeycutt said.

lowtex properties after the mill went bankrupt and is developing the N.C. Research Campus, a life-sciences research center. Nieman said the drink is rich in polyphenols or plant chemicals such as flavonoids, and may help swimmers get through their workouts in better fashion. Elite swimmers in Charlotte will take the Murdock juice for two weeks preand post-workout at the pool. Their data will be compared with that of healthy males between the ages of 19 and 30 who are being solicited to join the research project. They will operate as a control group. The volunteers must be close to normal weight. Additionally, they must not have a history of exercising vigorously more than 30 minutes per day. Participants selected for the study will come to the Human Performance Lab at the N.C. Research Campus for a total of five times during the study. During the first visit, they will be tested for maximal aerobic fitness on a cycle ergometer and percent body fat. During four additional vis-

its of about 15 minutes each, they will come to the Human Performance Laboratory after fasting overnight to provide blood samples. These blood samples will be tested for immune function, oxidative stress and inflammation markers. This information will be shared with each individual after the study is completed. Participants’ blood sample data will be compared with data collected from elite swimmers in the Charlotte area. The swimmers will consume a special juice rich in beneficial plant chemicals for two weeks to determine if post-workout inflammation, oxidative stress and immune dysfunction can be attenuated. The first testing runs through April 18. Blood samples will be taken in April and May. Participants will receive $100 at the end of the study for participation as well as free fitness test information worth $100 and important health data from their blood samples.

No decision yet in case of dog attacking horse BY SHAVONNE POTTS

slipped out of its collar and did not respond when her boyfriend called for her. The dog also did not respond when Winchester called for it. Winchester told the judge she was one who called Animal Control. Salisbury Police Animal Control Officer Ann Frye told the court she gave Winchester a leash and a can of cat food in efforts to help her retrieve her dog. “She (Lucy) was obviously enjoying her freedom,” Frye said on the stand. Frye said the dog approached her as she was setting a dog trap. She said Lucy was friendly. Despite the fact that Lucy appeared friendly, the black-and-white pit bull was put down by animal control. “What else you want me to do?” Winchester asked. Assistant District Attorney Rosalee HartMorrison asked for restitution. Winchester said she did not have a job and could not pay the $937 in vet bills and $50 fine to Animal Control. Bickett said it concerned him that the neighbors did not talk to each other about this issue. He said they should have initiated discussions about the dog. “Yep that’s what grown people do,” Winchester said. Bickett told Winchester that she came across as a little rough and he could see why her neighbors were hesitant to approach her. “Ma’am you’ve got an attitude,” the judge said. Bickett did not make a final decision in the case.

A woman whose pit bull attacked her neighbor’s horses will have to wait three weeks for a decision in her case. Animal Control said Cortenea Winchester violated the county’s ordinance in allowing her dog, a pit bull named, Lucy, to run loose. In late January her dog bit a horse housed in a pasture on Sells Road. The same horse, Honey, was attacked in November. Winchester and her neighbors, including the horse’s owner, Tammy Fisher, were in District Court Wednesday. Winchester waived her right to attorney and represented herself. Following an hourlong hearing, Judge Marshall Bickett told Winchester this was a difficult decision. “I need a little bit of help,” he said. Bickett referred the matter to the April 7 District Court date so a probation officer can provide appropriate sentencing recommendations in what’s called a pre-sentencing report. Fisher testified she spent a total of $937 on veterinarian bills to treat her horse’s injuries. The horse had teeth marks and tear marks to its legs. Fisher did not witness the attacks, but said another neighbor videotaped the attack and she produced pictures of Honey’s injuries. Winchester told a Post reporter in January the dog was not hers. She admitted in court Wednesday the dog belonged to her and that the dog did get loose. Winchester said the dog did not get loose as frequently as her neighbors said. She told the judge that Lucy was accidentally let out by her daughter once and then most recently by her boyfriend who walked Contact reporter Shavonne Potts at 704-797the dog.

If you’re looking for a fun way to exercise while supporting a good cause, stop by Woodleaf Bowling Lanes about 10 a.m. Saturday. There, Livingstone College administrators, faculty, staff and students will participate in the college’s 17th Annual BowlA-Thon to benefit the United Negro College Fund. “The Bowl-A-Thon is an event to which we invite our donors, faculty, staff, students and friends for a fun-filled day that’s centered around fund raising,” said Deborah John-

RELIGION FROM 3a Student Susan Hagee is taking her second religion class at Rowan-Cabarrus. Her project was about religious themes in the fictional world of Star Wars. This year, she decided to stay in that same vein by focusing on the television series Star Trek. “People probably don’t realize that although Star Trek is based in the future there are a lot of religious influences because it was made in the ’60s,” she said. Student Will Wilson did his project on freemasonry after being inspired to learn more after reading the “The Hiram Key” by Chris Knight and Robert Lomas. “It goes over the basic history of when the fraternity was formed, who they are and dispels some false information,” he said. Wilson said while working on the project he learned that

son, director of UNCF for Livingstone College. “Usually 75 to 100 people come out, but this year we’re hoping for even more participants than that as we try to raise much-needed dollars for UNCF.” Livingstone College’s 17th annual Bowl-A-Thon is being held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cost is $75 per bowler or $500 for teams or sponsorships. “We are so appreciative of everything our sponsors do to help make the Bowl-A-Thon successful,” Johnson said. “They really go out of their way to help make this a special, fun day for the college.” Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Mark Twain are among the notable freemasons. He said having the opportunity to explore other religions through the exhibit gave him even more insight into religions. “It’s been very interesting to dispel the misconceptions we have about a certain group of people ... it’s truly a shame,” Wilson said. Wilson said he’s always been interested in finding out more about other cultures and his world religions class has been a kep stepping stone in that learning process. “The way people worship is really one of the places you have to start to get insight,” he said. Student Megan Sullivan said she was surprised to find out that many religions have a common thread that runs throughout. “The basic teachings of Islam go along with Christianity, like being charitable and caring for people,” she said. “The only thing I knew before this project was that Islam

Lyerly-Wiener said she enjoys teaching religious studies because it gives her the opportunity to “open students’ eyes to other ways of seeing the sacred.” “So many people grow up in a particular religion and don’t realize so much more is out there,” she said. “This is a good way to open your mind to new religions.” Contact reporter Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.

Volunteers sought to try ‘Murdock juice’ KANNAPOLIS — Appalachian State University researchers are studying the health influence of a juice beverage and are seeking volunteers to participate in the study. The research is part of the ongoing work by faculty in the College of Health Sciences’ Human Performance Lab located at the N.C. Research Campus. The study is being led by Dr. Amy Knab, an assistant professor in the College of Health Sciences, and Dr. David Nieman, director of the facility. “This is a very interesting study,” Nieman said. “We have a contract with Dole Foods to test the influence of the ‘Murdock blended juice’ beverage in countering postworkout inflammation, oxidative stress and immune dysfunction in elite swimmers from SwimMac in Charlotte.

EAST SPENCER — A movie that includes a local face releases today in theaters across the Southeast. East Spencer Police Chief Floyd Baldo played a football coach as an extra in the movie “The 5th Quarter,” which was filmed in Winston-Salem. “It’s going to be a really good movie,” Baldo said. “Especially for Wake Forest fans, it’s a must-see.” The film stars Aidan Quinn, Andie MacDowell and Ryan Merriman and tells the story of a star football player at Wake Forest University named Jon Abbate. In February 2006, Abbate’s 15-year-old brother, Luke, was killed in a car wreck due to his friend’s reckless driving. Abbate considered quitting the football team, but a coach persuaded him to keep playing. Instead of his usual No. 40, he asked to wear the No. 5, his brother’s number while playing high school football. At the end of the third quarter, he would hold up five fingers in honor of Luke, and the rest of the team and even the fans followed his lead. Soon, at Wake Forest the fourth quarter became known as the fifth quarter. Baldo, who has no lines in the movie, said he enjoyed working on set with the cast, crew and other extras for six days in late 2008. He hadn’t seen the final cut of the film Thursday, but he knows he appears in a locker room scene where the head coach gives the team an inspirational speech. A clip of the scene is available on the movie’s website, along with the trailer. The 5th Quarter hits theatres in limited release today in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and Virginia. A wider release may be possible in the future. The movie is playing at the Carmike Cinema 8 in Lexing-

Man shoots at his brother in argument SALISBURY — A Salisbury man was arrested after shooting at his brother, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office reported. William Robert Kelly, 21, of 734 Ryan St., was arrested Tuesday and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, communicating threats, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a weapon with an altered serial number and resisting an officer. He was in jail Thursday night under a $20,000 bond. According to the report, early Tuesday morning Kelly went to the home of his brother, Gary Kelly, at 125 Castle Drive and his brother told him to leave. William Kelly, sitting in his pickup in the driveway, said he wouldn’t leave and threatened to shoot his brother, the report said.

Van hits utility pole, power goes out

Gary Kelly got closer to the truck and again asked William Kelly to leave, which is when William Kelly fired a shot, missing his brother, then drove away, the report said. A Granite Quarry Police officer spotted William Kelly driving W. KELLY down Main Street in Faith and pulled him over. William Kelly told the officer he didn’t have a gun, and when the officer asked again, he told him he might have a .32 caliber handgun in his truck. The gun was found during a search, and William Kelly was taken to the magistrate’s office and placed in jail.

CHINA GROVE — An 18-year-old driver struck a utility pole and knocked out power in the area Thursday afternoon. Joseph Daniels of China Grove was traveling north in the 600 block of Bostian Street when he said he swerved to miss a small animal and ended up striking a utility pole about 3:40 p.m. The downed pole caused a power outage to several blocks in the area. Daniels’ air bags went off during the collision, but photo by Cindy Alley of www.AnimAgeCAptured.Com no injuries were reported. A broken utility pole rests on top of the van after the collision.

Same suspect implicated in two robberies KANNAPOLIS — Police say recent thefts at two jewelry stores appear to have been committed by the same person. In both incidents, a man looked around the business for several minutes before asking to see a gold chain. When an employee took the chain out of a case, the man grabbed it and ran, police said. The thefts happened around 11:20 a.m. March 15 at Baucom Phillips Jewelers, 2071 Dale Earnhardt Blvd., and around 11 a.m. March 19 at Village Jewelry, 867 Cloverleaf Plaza. Police obtained surveillance video from both stores. Detectives ask anyone with information about the thefts or the identity of the suspect to call the Cabarrus Area Crime Stoppers at 704-932-7463 or Detective G.P. Watkins at 704-920-4001.

Father-in-law slashed in ongoing feud ROCKWELL — A Rockwell man was in custody Thursday night after deputies say he cut his father-in-law with a knife Tuesday, sending the older man to hospital. According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, Donald Gene Barnette, 25, of 140 Austin St., Rockwell, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and intimidating a state’s witness. He is BARNETTE in the Rowan County jail under a $25,000 secured bond. According to the report, Barnette went to the home of his father-in-law, Bobby Gene Austin, at 135 Cedar Ridge Lane in China Grove Tuesday night. An altercation ensued, and the report said Barnette cut



Austin on his right arm several times. Austin was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center for treatment of what were described as “severe lacerations.” Austin and his wife are scheduled to testify against Barnette in an incident that happened in December. Austin was taking Barnette’s 1-year-old daughter from Barnette’s home at his daughter’s request, and Barnette unexpectedly came home from jail. Barnette jumped onto Auston’s moving vehicle and hung onto the side of the car while Austin drove off. Austin used a baseball bat to try to beat Barnette off his car. He eventually stopped after hitting several mailboxes and street signs, and Barnette grabbed his child and took off back toward his home. Austin was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor child abuse, but is now a state’s witness in the case, the report said.

Child hit by vehicle KANNAPOLIS — A 9year-old boy was injured Wednesday when he was hit by a car on a residential street just outside Kannapolis. According to the N.C. State Highway Patrol, Darren Shockley was walking with a friend along Fowler Street when Kannapolis resident Vicki Schramm struck him in an Oldsmobile about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

An “infestation” of cockroaches filled the house, and they “weren’t scurrying or hiding, it was just like we were in their territory. I’ve never been anywhere (as) nasty, and I’ve been in every crack house in this county.”

FROM 1a He could smell it from the road Wednesday as he and others arrived to serve a search warrant. “There was trash everywhere,” he said. “A strong smell of ammonia, animal urine in the house. It was filthy.” Moose said there was little food in the cabinets, no running water and the commodes were stopped up, filled with what he said looked like human waste. “The worst house I’ve ever seen,” he said. “There was so much stuff in there, we don’t really know what it was. Piles of stuff. Rotten food. It smelled of decaying flesh but we didn’t find any animal carcasses.” An “infestation” of cockroaches filled the entire house, Moose said. “They weren’t scurrying or hiding, it was just like we were in their territory,” he said. “I’ve never been anywhere (as) nasty, and I’ve been in every crack house in this county.” Moose said the Rowan County Department of Social Services visited the mobile home Monday with Sheriff’s Detective John Brindle after receiving requests to check on the Lores’ four children. The children, ages 7, 9, 14 and 16, were there alone, he said. The Lores had operated Pet Place at the Webb Road Flea Market, but after a massive fire destroyed the flea market in September, they moved to a shop at 848 S. Main St. in Salisbury. “The parents worked at a



shop uptown, and they would go open their shop and run their business every day, and their kids were home alone for long periods of time,” Moose said. Social workers took the four children from the home Monday. Sandra Wilkes, director of the Rowan County Department of Social Services, said Thursday the children have been placed with family. “They are in a relative’s home. They are safe, they are being taken care of, they’re clean and they’re getting enrolled in school,” she said. “I think the minimum I can say is they’re not in that home ... and they’re getting good care.” Wilkes said she couldn’t say any more about the children, or whether Social Services had received or responded to previous complaints about the home, because of “strict confidentiality rules.” Authorities said the children had never been enrolled in public school. The family is registered with the N.C. Division of Non-Public Instruction as a home school under the name Rock Olive Academy. David Lore is listed as chief administrator. Neighbors told a Post reporter on Wednesday they hardly ever saw the children. And officers with the Rowan County Home School Association said the Lores were not

active in their group, which offers support as well as field trips and other activities to parents and children in home schools. Bevin Fink, vice president of the association, said the Lores were affiliated with the group at one time but haven’t been for at least three years. William Brown, the organization’s president, said he and his wife Tammy have been “very active” in the association for five years and don’t recall ever seeing the Lores. “We don’t know anything about them,” Brown said. Even if the Lores weren’t living up to their responsibilities as educators as alleged, Brown said he’s concerned the charges will reflect “negatively, not accurately, but negatively” on the home-school community. He stressed that “delinquent parents can be found in all sorts of situations.” “This is such an atypical situation,” he said. “The vast majority of home-schoolers are dedicated and conscientious about following state guidelines, that kind of thing.” Different guidelines got law enforcement involved. Moose said the Sheriff’s Office got a search warrant after the detective accompany Social Services saw the condi-

tion of the house, which included two dead snakes rotting inside aquariums and three malnourished dogs that were taken by Rowan Animal Control. He said as bad as conditions inside the home were when detectives served the search warrant Wednesday, they were better than the “horrendous” conditions Social Services workers found the children living in on Monday. Authorities arrested David and Angela Lore at their pet shop on Wednesday. “They were pretty angry when we arrested them, very angry in fact,” Moose said. When the Lores were taken into custody, Moose said, animals in the back of the store didn’t have any food or water. Rowan Animal Control checked on the store Thursday and contacted the N.C. Department of Agriculture. The two agencies may visit the pet store today to assess the health and living conditions of the animals, he said. Moose said the Sheriff’s Office had received complaints about the animals at the shop and about the dogs at the Lores’ home. Not everyone is convinced the Lores deserve the charges they face.

Amy Hevenor has known the family since her husband got into reptiles six years ago and said he has bought several snakes from Pet Place over the years. Though she was a customer first, Hevenor said she is now a friend of the Lores. She stopped by the shop Wednesday morning to check on the animals and said she’s also concerned about the well being of David and Angela Lore. “I don’t think they did animal cruelty or child abuse,” she said. “I can’t pass judgement on someone. He (David Lore) has a heart of gold in him. I hope it goes OK and they can get out and take care of their animals.” She said Angela Lore always had her daughters at the shop, and she doesn’t believe they were ever mistreated. Hevenor mainly wants to see that the animals are cared for and checked on daily. “I see them all in there. I see the lizards, I see the birds. Hopefully, someone will take care of them,” she said, looking into the store through a window. Several people showed up at Pet Place shortly after Hevenor left. Some were looking for David Lore and some for feeder mice for their reptiles. Someone is taking care of the animals, a woman outside of Pet Place said Thursday, but the store will remain closed for now. Contact reporter Shelley Smith at 704-797-4246.

You can have a green lawn without using all those chemicals ALISBURY — Bitter cold weather this winter took its toll on fescue in Rowan County. Fescue turned brown and in some instances was killed outright. But with the arrival of warmer weather, fescue lawns are starting to come back DARRELL BLACKWELDER and look good in some areas. Cool season fescue and bluegrass blends require maintenance incorporating both fertilizer and pesticides for insect and weed control in the annual program. Many seek the perfect manicured lawn, but a number of homeowners are abandoning this goal, giving way to organic or limited pesticide use for


lawn care. Reducing pesticide usage is certainly a consideration given the state of our economy. Low maintenance lawns can look good and be green with fewer weeds and less diseases by understanding cultural practices. Below are a few tips that may reduce disease, insect and weed problems without chemicals. • Make sure your soil fertility is correct. Have soil tested every two years to ensure maximum growth. Guessing on fertility is a major problem. Correct fertility at the right stage of growth will reduce brown patch. • Raise mower height. Research has proven that the closer lawns are mowed, the higher incidence of weeds such as dandelion and annual bluegrass. Tall grass shades weed seeds, reducing sunlight needed for germination. Those who mow

closely to reduce growth generally have mostly weeds. • Mow often and leave the grass clippings. Grass clippings add organic matter to the soil, supplying nutrients. Turf specialists reveal that leaving grass clippings can reduce fertilization needs 25 percent. • Mow late in the afternoon when the grass is dry. Mowing grass laden with dew or wet from a rain has a higher incidence of brown patch and other foliar diseases. • Keep the lawnmower blade sharp. Dull mower blades make turf grass jagged and unsightly. Jagged turf also is a prime candidate for the spread of foliar fungus diseases. • Irrigate lawns in the early morning. Deep but infrequent watering encourages roots to penetrate deep-

er into the soil. Watering in the evening encourages pathogenic fungus disease such as brown patch. • Milky spore is a talc product laden with bacteria that controls grubs in the submitted Photos soil.

It is a gorgeous deciduous magnolia with stunning yellow, slightly fragrant blooms on its bare branches at this time of year. The pink “tulip” magnolia (M.

The cherry trees are sporting their blossoms as are the mahonias and the heavily laden branches of the white spirea. Redbuds are beginning to show their rich color before bursting open shortly. Only one azalea was spotted trying to show off some early color, as well.

RALEIGH — The state’s commitment to land and water conservation is paying dividends across North Carolina, including in Rowan County, according to the annual Green Book report released by Land for Tomorrow. North Carolina’s land and water conservation trust funds — Clean Water Management Trust Fund (CWMTF), Natural Heritage Trust Fund (NHTF), Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF) and the Agricultural Development and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund (ADFPTF) — provided $78,625 for projects in Rowan County in 2010. To date, one or more of the state’s four conservation trust funds have spent just over $12 million in Rowan County to help conserve land and water. That funding is vital to the state’s economy and public health. “There’s a reason this year’s Green Book is titled ‘An Excellent Investment,’ ” says Reid Wilson, executive director of the Conservation Trust for North Carolina and a Land for Tomorrow executive committee member. “One month ago, we released a study that shows that for every $1 invested by the state’s conservation trust funds, North Carolinians receive a $4 return for natural goods and services — things like drinking water protection, cleaner air and flood control. Conservation funding is saving Rowan County taxpayers money. “That return on investment is a conservative figure,” Wilson notes, “because the study didn’t take into account the significant benefits of land and water conservation on the agricultural, tourism, recreational and military industries. “Just last week it was announced that North Carolina had a record year for tourism, with the travel and tourism industry contributing $17 billion to the state’s economy,” he says. “People are coming here because of our fantastic natural areas. Many of those places have been protected through investment from the conservation trust funds.” Members of the Land for Tomorrow coalition distributed highlights from the Green Book to North Carolina legislators, including the delegation from Rowan County, on Tuesday. They urged lawmakers to support keeping $50 million for CWMTF and $2 million for the ADFPTF in the state budget. These are the current funding levels, which have already been cut roughly 50 percent from past budgets. To download the complete Green Book, including county data, visit

Bullied child has family worried about what to do to help

Scripps Howard News Service

Posters are a great way to introduce a theme and decorate without breaking the bank. Let’s explore. Framed posters can help make a guest room pleasant and inviting. Depending on your decor, the posters can be of flowers, water scenes, gardens, animals or sports themes, to name a few possibilities. What about a Western theme? Bring some cowboys and Indians to a child’s room. Is your heritage from another country? Do you like nostalgic themes? Are you confused about the theme to use? Think about the feeling or mood you want to create and then you will have the inspiration as to what theme you want to pursue. But don’t limit yourself to only the guest room. Poster choices are so varied and attractive that they can be used in any room. How about decorating a family room with vintage movie posters? There are hundreds of these posters to

choose from and you can pick just about any movie from the 1940s and onward. And posters are inexpensive. The framing will probably cost more than the poster itself. You can enhance and enlarge the size of the poster by having it matted when you frame it. Some posters look better without matting. If you aren’t sure which way to go, a framer can help you. If matting is the choice, it should coordinate with the rest of the colors in the room, such as in furniture, window treatments, floor covering and wall color. Try to either contrast or blend. The choice is yours as to how you would like the poster to stand out. When decorating with posters, choose more than one so a theme can be established. Posters come in more than one size, so you can blend smaller ones with larger ones if space is limited or for a visual variety. Having a few posters of an ongoing theme will help complete the look in the room.

BY MARY CAROL GARRITY Easter always brings back a wealth of wonderful childhood memories for me. One of my favorites is the amazing egg tree in the home of my friend Gracie. Every Easter, Gracie’s mother would hand-blow Easter eggs, decorate them beautifully and hang them from the twigs of a tree she made from a fallen branch. Then came the best part: Gracie’s mother would say, “Mary Carol, you can pick an egg to keep.” I thought I had died and gone to heaven. While I don’t have Gracie’s mother’s talent for decorating hand-blown eggs, I do like to dress up my dining-room table for Easter when Dan and I have the family over. This year, I’m going to steal ideas from the festive table the Nell Hill’s Atchison gang designed. Want to join me? Here are a few tips for the taking. In general, I’m opting for a subdued look on my dining table this season. But Easter is the big exception. In my book, if your table isn’t bright and cheery and overflowing with spring color, it just isn’t Easter. It doesn’t take much to make your dining chairs fun and festive, but guests will be wowed by your work. Gather together some faux spring or summer blooms, make a bright bouquet, then tie it up with spring-colored organza ribbon. Secure the nosegay to the back of the chair and in seconds you’ve elevated the look of your table. On our display table at Nell Hill’s Atchison, we used two layers of light, springy tablecloths. We started with a vintage-looking white cloth that is edged in green embroidered polka dots, turned on the diagonal to make it more interesting. Next, we added a peppy table topper in robin’s-egg blue, bordered in bouncing blue polka dots. Do you have any vintage

linens hiding away in your cedar chest? Use them on your Easter table. Or, get a yard and a half of spring fabric, sew a hem (or, if you’re a cheater like me, fold and press a quickie hem) and use it as an instant topper. Depending upon time and inclination, you can make your centerpiece as simple or complex as you like. If you’re rushed for time, take one or three apothecary jars and fill them half full of faux birds’ eggs. If you’d like your arrangement to have more color, add a few bundles of faux spring grasses on either side of the grouping. Fake grass bouquets are one of my favorite seasonal accents this year — the emerald green positively glows with energy and life. Consider adding a few Easter figurines. We tried a vintage-looking bunny, dressed in top hat and ruffle. Here’s another centerpiece option: Elevate an Easter icon on a riser. We used a rustic wooden cake plate to do so. You could also use a plant stand, a stack of books, a compote or anything else that will give your look a lift. To give the tableau more height, we placed a blue tinted jar full of birds’ eggs in the background. We put Easter grass in the foreground (you could also use moss) to make the display fuller. Stop here or add an egg or two to the foreground, and a fern to the middle ground to bring in even more color and texture. When you design the place

Home and Garden Television

A continuing compendium of tips and tricks from Home & Garden Television: Just because your home is pint-sized doesn’t mean you have to live with pint-sized home decor. Try these tricks of the trade on for size, and you’ll find that your small apartment has never looked bigger. • You don’t have to live with standard-issue apartment Venetian blinds. Add a touch of drama and create a more comfortable feel with curtains, and consider the tricks you can do with curtains to make your space bigger. Hang them outside the window or even where there are no windows. Hang them floor-to-ceiling to create height or have them flow from a cornice that hides the curtain rod. • Lucite tables or chairs and glass tops all give the impression of openness while still delivering the function you need. • Add light up, down and all around to create interest and the feeling of space.

settings for your Easter table, think like a kid. Make it bright and playful and so much fun to look at that you’d rather not disturb it to eat. One secret is to add pops of color, balanced with a few plain white dishes. We achieved that harmony by starting with a yellow charger, which is actually a serving platter. Next came two white plates, each in a different shape and size but sporting similar trim details. We broke up the white by inserting a bright blue napkin. This is a great way to display napkins if you don’t want to do anything fancy with them. We topped our tower of plates with a lovely green cake plate with fluted edges. Drinking glasses are another way to bring in a pop of color. I really like to add individual flower bouquets to my dining-table displays. They offer another chance to bring more color, texture and interest to the table. Consider brightly colored mini vases with a few faux daisy blooms. If you don’t like fakes, fill the bud vases with inexpensive cash-andcarry bouquets. The column has been adapted from Mary Carol Garrity’s blog at www.nellhills. com. She can be reached at

Stark figures ‘We are one in song’ on ed cuts Countywide chorus an uplifting experience

f any legislators still hoped to balance the state budget while not raising taxes and significantly harming public education, they got a sobering report recently. The Joint House-Senate Education Budget Subcommittee studied how to cut $760 million out of the $11.2 billion education budget. After seeing the facts, Sen. Jerry Tillman, R-Randolph, said, “Some of them (the cuts) are staggering.” The $760 million figure stems from Gov. Beverly Perdue’s proposed budget. She refused to cut teachers and raise class sizes — although her budget would cut the education budget and harm public education in many other ways. She proposed, instead, to institute a three-quarters of 1 percent sales tax after a current 1 percent tax expires on July 1. In essence, Perdue is calling for a sales tax after July 1 that is one-quarter of a percent less than the current rate while Republicans want it to be a full percent less. Perdue’s budget, therefore, presents legislators and North Carolina voters with a simple proposition: Is a sales-tax cut of three-quarters of a percent, or 15 cents on most $20 purchases, worth the damage to public education that would be caused by cutting another $760 million from its budget? Here are the facts, as presented to the subcommittee by budget analysts and reported by The Associated Press. The state would save money by increasing student-teacher ratios and employing fewer teachers. Two possible scenarios are: Raise the ratio in all grades by two students, or increase them by even more in just K-9. Current funding ratios run from 18 students in the earliest grades to 27 in later years, but those are funding ratios. In actual classrooms, exceptions in most grades run enrollments higher than those levels. ... The scenarios are numerous, the Associated Press reported. One had 6,062 teaching positions being eliminated to save $333 million; that’s just half of the money needed. Another proposal that includes cutting teachers and teacher aides, for a total of 17,741 positions, would save $528 million. Preschool programs could be eliminated, and community college and university tuition could be raised significantly, in the 10 percent range. After hearing all of the potential scenarios for getting to the $760 million difference between extending a three-quartercent sales tax and not, Tillman said of the potential cuts, “They’re very devastating.” North Carolinians must now decide which is more devastating, these cuts or the extra sales tax. You can “vote” by contacting your legislator.

hat a weekend! I’m still on an emotional high from spending this past weekend watching the Rowan-Salisbury Fifth Grade Honors Chorus grow together through song. There is the saying, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Well, it takes a village to put on a professional choral production with fifth grade students. Rowan-Salisbury Schools has been blessed in producing many artistic enDICY MCCULLOUGH deavors over the years. One of those endeavors is the fifth grade music festival each spring. The festival grew out of a vision of two elementary music teachers, Lucy Shue and Beth Yelvington, seven years ago. They had a vision children should be able not only to participate in a choral experience on a large level, but also benefit from working with a real-live composer. David Hagy, the conductor of the Salisbury Symphony, actually had the vision of a countywide chorus first. He asked the elementary music teachers, in a meeting, if they were willing for a fifth grade chorus to sing with the Salisbury Symphony. Of course, each music teacher was excited. The countywide chorus now has been singing with the orchestra for a little more than 20 years. The music festival, being two days of intense rehearsals, is a wonderful addition to the symphony experience and gives the children a different perspective by singing in harmony and adding choreography. The vision for the first music festival came true in 2005, with Sally Albrecht as the clinician. Known in the music world as a popular conductor, composer, and clinician, Sally was chosen to direct the festival not only because of her musicianship, but also her ability to work with and motivate children to perform. She was asked to come back in 2006, and due to her popularity, was asked again this year for the third time. Feeling


The Rowan-Salisbury Fifth Grade Honors Chorus bonded together in song at last weekend’s music festival. honored, she wrote a premiere piece, especially for the Rowan-Salisbury Concert, entitled, “Thunder.” Parents, students and teachers expressed many comments throughout the two-day event. One group of Cleveland students used words like “Awesome,” “Groovy” and “It’s amazing.” Kelly Hain, a parent and kindergarten teacher at Hurley Elementary School, expressed how she had seen her child, Lily, grow with newfound confidence as she practiced the songs, wondering how her mom knew the words to some of them. A student who performed last year, Samantha Hensley, summed it up by saying, “I loved it. It was fun. My favorite part was when we performed, and everyone came to watch. I also liked getting to see my friends from other schools. If I could, I would get on the stage right now and do it again.” There is no better recommendation for the success of a program than a student who has been part of the process before. This event did not happen by itself. It does take a village, such as the 13 music teachers who serve approximately 10,000 students, practicing often before or after school. Then, there’s grant money from the Blanche and Julian Robertson foundation, and donations of time, money and services from various local businesses and organizations. Included in the village are Dr. Sarah Hensley, an ad-

LETTERS Tax hike targets smokers — again I read the article in the Post about the proposal that cigarettes be taxed “again” — this time with an increase of $1 a pack. Why are smokers always targeted when someone mentions raising taxes? Why not alcohol? There must be lots of lobbying done to keep that from happening. Smokers have been the target for quite some time. There are more problems that need attention than smokers. I don’t smoke, but I did for 38 years before quitting in 1998. How many times do we hear about a smoker driving down the road and killing someone in a head-on collision? I’m not saying cigarettes aren’t harmful, but this tax will not keep teens from smoking.

Of course, this musical experience could not happen without the support of parents and the willingness of children involved. It is a lot of hard work. One music teacher, Tiffany Garcia, put things into perspective by saying, “The children begin to see the reality of time, and that music is not instantaneous. To prepare something like an Honors Chorus performance is a slice of temporal reality in a microwave culture.” The two-day festival concluded with the 180-voice Fifth Grade Honors Chorus singing at 4 p.m. Some songs had the audience laughing, while others produced a few tears. No amount of words could ever express the emotional roller coaster ride each and every person took that day. For two days, at South Rowan High School, a diverse group of children bonded together, just like the song they sang, by Greg Gilpin, “We are one in music. We are one in song.” Wouldn’t it be great if the whole world learned the words to this song and lived by them?

orman Braman is not your typical billionaire car dealer. Nor is he your typical establishment Republican, who too often puts party above principle. Norman Braman is the type of person who strikes fear into the hearts of every professional politician who thinks he can say one thing to get elected and then do the opposite once in office. In case you haven’t been paying attenCAL tion, Braman led THOMAS a successful drive to recall Republican mayor Carlos Alvarez of Miami-Dade, Fla., and Commissioner Natacha Seijas. Their offenses? In a telephone conversation, Braman tells me there were many, including, he says, “sloppy bookkeeping, fraud, and the mayor’s decision to use tax dollars to build a sports stadium for the local baseball team” when fiscal challenges for the city and high unemployment were harming the local economy. Braman filed a lawsuit hoping to stop the stadium. He lost. The final straw, he tells me, was when Alvarez and Seijas backed an increase in salaries for public employee union members and a property tax increase to help pay for it. Braman says he was enraged because seniors were not getting a cost of living increase and the jobless numbers were growing. Braman launched a website ( and the campaign was on. That a prominent Miami businessman who had voted for Alvarez (Seijas represented another county) would be able to attract Hispanics and AfricanAmericans, angry whites as well as Democrats, Republicans and independents of various hues is the ultimate in coalition politics. According to a recent story in the Miami Herald titled “Will Voter Revolt Bring Real Change at Miami-Dade County Hall?” “Eighty-eight percent voted to oust Alvarez and Seijas in the biggest recall of a local politician in U.S. history.” Braman says people should take one message from his efforts: “This is not a Republican or Democratic issue. It is a referendum for change.” The tough part comes next. As the Herald reported, the county charter must be changed if political business is not to remain as usual. “Commissioners,” it found, “have often refused to bring proposals to change the charter before the public for a vote.” The momentum may be shifting. The commissioners are set to meet this week to plan a special election to replace Alvarez and Seijas. There is also a good chance they might consider reforming the charter and allow the public to vote on proposed changes. Some pundits and Democratic politicians have predicted that the tea party movement to reform government is a flash in the pan and won’t last through the 2012 election. Norman Braman begs to differ. The flip side of an energized electorate demanding that government not spend more than it takes in and that it take in only what it absolutely needs, respecting the people who earn it, is that increasing numbers of us must be torn away from the public trough. Four years ago, the Christian Science Monitor reported that, according to an analysis by Gary Shilling, an economist in Springfield, N.J., “Slightly over half of all Americans — 52.6 percent — now receive significant income from government programs.” That figure is probably higher today. No wonder many have become addicted to the politicians who keep sending them checks instead of encouraging the ablebodied to care for themselves. The United States is seriously and dangerously speeding toward socialism, in function, if not in name. Howard Jarvis led an antitax revolt over high property taxes in California. In 2011, Norman Braman of Miami could be his successor. • • • Contact Cal Thomas at: Tribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

NATO likely to take lead only of air over Libya WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States welcomed a partial handover for the Libyan air campaign to NATO on Thursday, but the allies apparently balked at assuming full control and the U.S. military was left in charge of the brunt of combat. NATO agreed to take over command of the newly established no-fly zone over Libya, protective flights meant to deter Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi from putting warplanes in the air. That leaves the U.S. with responsibility for attacks on Gadhafi’s ground forces and other targets, which are the toughest and most controversial portion of the operation. The U.S. had hoped the alliance would reach a consensus Thursday for NATO to take full control of the military operation authorized by the United Nations, including the protection of Libyan civilians and supporting humanitarian aid efforts on the ground. It was not immediately clear when the allies could reach agreement on the matter. “We are taking the next step: We have agreed along with our NATO allies to transition command and control for the no-fly zone over Libya to NATO,” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said. “All 28 allies have also now authorized military authorities to develop an operations plan for NATO to take on the broader civilian protection mission.” Lines of authority were unclear, but U.S. commanders would presumably be chiefly responsible for ensuring that the NATO protective flights do not conflict with planned combat operations under U.S. command. The Pentagon indicated U.S. warplanes will keep flying strike missions over Libya.

Gaza militants fire deep into Israel; airstrikes in response JERUSALEM (AP) — Palestinian militants in Gaza fired a new wave of rockets that landed deep inside Israel, defying retaliatory attacks and threats. As the violence threatened to escalate the day after a deadly Jerusalem bombing, Israel got a boost from the visiting U.S. defense chief, who said no country could tolerate the “repugnant” attacks on its soil. Police said Gaza militants fired 10 rockets and mortars toward Israel Thursday, including two rockets that landed north of the city of Ashdod — a first since Israel and Gaza’s Hamas rulers reached an unofficial truce following a three-week war that ended in January 2009. Israeli airstrikes hit a number of Gaza targets in retaliation. Neither side reported injuries or said they wanted a new fight. Wednesday’s bombing killed a British tourist, and five members of a Jewish family were slain while they slept in a West Bank settlement earlier this month. Israel has blamed Palestinians for both attacks.

Census shows Hispanic growth reaching 50 million WASHINGTON (AP) — Hispanics accounted for more than half of the U.S. population increase over the last decade, exceeding estimates in most states as they crossed a new census milestone: 50 million, or 1 in 6 Americans. Meanwhile, more than 9 million Americans checked two or more race categories on their 2010 census forms, up 32 percent from 2000, a sign of burgeoning multiracial growth in an increasingly minority nation. The Census Bureau on Thursday released its first set of national-level findings from the 2010 count on race and migration, detailing a decade in which rapid minority growth, aging whites and the

Analysts said the results confirmed a demographic transformation under way that is upending traditional notions of racial minorities, political swing districts, even city and suburb. “These are big demographic changes,” said Mark Mather, an associate vice president at the nonprofit Population Reference Bureau. “There is going to be some culture shock, especially in communities that haven’t had high numbers of immigrants or minorities in the past.”

Adviser says Bachmann likely to enter presidential race ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Tea party favorite and Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann is feeling pressure from the political calendar to rush a decision on a White House bid and may announce her intentions as early as May, one of her top advisers said Thursday. Bachmann, a thirdterm congresswoman from Minnesota, could form a presidential exploratory committee beBACHMANN fore two televised Republican debates scheduled the first week of May, said Ed Brookover, a Bachmann adviser. “I’m not sure the debate is what’s going to make our final decision,” he said. “Is it a factor? Yes.” Other Republicans familiar with Bachmann’s thinking said all signs point to a White House run. They insisted on anonymity to discuss private conversations with Bachmann and her advisers.

Paralyzed mom of triplets wants to visit her children LOS ANGELES (AP) — It’s a custody case in which no one disputes these tragic facts: A healthy young woman went to the hospital to deliver her triplets, was badly brain damaged by a series of medical errors and can no longer walk, talk or even feed herself. But Abbie Dorn’s attorney says that doesn’t make her any less a mother to those 4-year-old triplets, telling Superior Court Judge Frederick C. Shaller at a pre-trial hearing in Los Angeles Thursday that the 34-year-old woman has the same rights to regular visits with her children as any other parent. “They can call her mommy and, most of all, they can tell her they love her,” attorney Lisa Meyer said during closing arguments at a hearing to decide whether Dorn is allowed to see her children for two weeks every summer and a week in the spring and fall. The attorney for Dorn’s ex-husband, Dan Dorn, countered Meyer, saying that as tragic as her situation is, she is no longer capable of being a parent and that if her children are to see her it should only be under the supervision of their father and on his terms. “It’s unfortunate but it’s the truth, and we have to deal with what we know,” said attorney Vicki Greene.

Just how many air traffic controllers do pilots need? WASHINGTON (AP) — Should jetliners be landing with only a single air traffic controller on duty — even if he’s awake? Federal officials are grappling with that question following the safe landing of two jetliners this week with no help from the lone air traffic supervisor on duty at Washington’s Reagan National Airport. He’s been suspended, and safety investigators say he has acknowledged he was asleep. The incident comes nearly five years after a fatal crash in Kentucky where a controller was working alone. Accident investigators said that controller was most likely suffering from fatigue, although they placed responsibility for the crash that took 46 lives on the pilots. The National Air Traffic Controllers Association warned at the time against putting controllers alone on shifts and assigning tiring work schedules. The union’s president, Paul Rinaldi, made the same point again on Thursday: “One-person shifts are unsafe. Period.”

Researchers say animal was saber-toothed vegetarian WASHINGTON (AP) — Surprised scientists have discovered the remains of a saber-toothed vegetarian. The leafcrunching animal — about the size of a large dog — lived 260 million years ago in what is now Brazil, researchers report in today’s edition of the journal Science. Its upper canine teeth were nearly 5 inches long. Such large teeth are more often the mark of a meat-eating animal, used to capture and kill prey. The enormous canines were likely used by the plant-eating animals to fight each other or protect against predators, said research leader Juan Carlos Cisneros of the University of Piaui in northeastern Brazil. For example, they might have fought for territory, resources or females, like the modern musk deer, which also have a pair of large, tusklike teeth, he said via email. “These situations are extremely important for the survival of an individual and the success of a species,” he said. Discovering animals like this “shows us how nature is extremely creative in providing solutions for several life tasks.”

Man who called officer ‘fat slob’ getting his day in court LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A federal appeals court is allowing a free speech lawsuit to go ahead after a Kentucky man was arrested when he called a police officer a “fat slob.” The man, Kevin O. Kennedy, was angry over permits to expand a strip mall near his home in 2005 and called Joseph Schutzman, who is also a building inspector, a fat slob. Schutzman arrested Kennedy on a charge of disturbing the peace. The charge was later dropped, but Kennedy sued. The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the lawsuit over wrongful arrest can go forward.

Elizabeth Taylor, screen goddess, was born in 1951’s “A Place in the Sun,” when she cooed into Montgomery Clift’s ear, “You’ll be my pickup.” Taylor had been a child and teenage star, but “A Place in the Sun” was the first head-on look at her mature, raven-haired, violeteyed beauty. It would be captured again, if fleetingly, in the sultry “BUtterfield 8,” the sweltering “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and the fitting “Cleopatra,” surely her historical counterpart. Her searing screen presence astonished a moviegoing public. It was a ravishing, glamorous glow that no amount of blockbuster failures or tabloid escapades could dim — and in her 79 years, there were plenty of both. As news of her death Wednesday spread, it was clear how many were still entranced. Fellow stars, fans and heads of state were nearly as helpless as Clift’s George Eastman. Her former husband, former Sen. John W. Warner recalled her “classic face and majestic eyes.” Joan Collins remembered Taylor as “the last of the true Hollywood icons.” Elton John said she embodied “the very essence of glamorous movie stardom.” Taylor died Wednesday of congestive heart failure. She was surrounded by her four children at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she had been

GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) — Elizabeth Taylor’s family mourned the screen legend in a brief private funeral service Thursday at a Southern California cemetery famous for being the final resting place of Hollywood celebrities, including her good friend Michael Jackson. Inside the sprawling Forest Lawn Cemetery, barricades blocked access to the funeral, where about four dozen family members mourned the actress during a service that lasted about an hour, said Glendale police spokesman Tom Lorenz. Taylor converted to Judaism before her 1959 wedding to Eddie Fisher. Jewish customs call for a burial within 48 hours of death. In addition to Jackson, the cemetery is the final resting place for such stars as Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, W.C. Fields, Red Skelton, Gracie Allen, Walt Disney and Nat King Cole.

my Awards, including a special one for her humanitarian work. She was an ardent and early supporter of AIDS research, when HIV was new to the industry and beyond. “I admired Elizabeth Taylor enormously and feel heartsick losing her, especially with all of her charitable works,” said Ann Berry, a fan and character actress who lives nearby and visited the cemetery with a friend to pay their respects to the star. Survivors include Taylor’s daughters Maria Burton-Carson and Liza Todd-Tivey, sons Christopher and Michael Wilding, 10 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Zsa Zsa Gabor’s publicist says the shock of Taylor’s death made Gabor fear she was next and sent her to a Los Angeles hospital with high blood pressure. That account was challenged by Ed Lozzi, publicist for Gabor’s daughter, Francesca Hilton. He says Hilton called the hospital and was told her mother had not been there.

hospitalized for about six weeks. Film critic Vincent Camby once wrote that Taylor “represents the complete movie phenomenon — what movies are as an art and an industry and what they have meant to us who have grown up watching them in the dark.” As flawless as she was in film, she was utterly human off-screen. Her stormy personal life — she was married eight times, including twice to Richard Burton — made her an early template for modern celebrity. Most, though, didn’t find her diva-like, but selfdeprecating, generous and funny. “I, along with the critics, have never taken myself very seriously,” she said, accepting a lifetime achievement award from the American Film Institute in 1993.

College marks Women’s History Month BY LAURIE D. WILLIS Livingstone College News Service

March is Women’s History Month, and Livingstone College is celebrating with its annual Women in History event at 11:30 a.m. today in the Hilliard Room in the Hood Building. The luncheon is one of Livingstone College’s annual events in support of the United Negro College Fund. The theme for this year’s affair is “Our History is Our Strength.” Kendra Norman-Bellamy, an award winning, best-selling author, publisher and motivational speaker, is the keynote speaker. NormanBellamy was chosen because of her talent, said Deborah Johnson, UNCF Director at Livingstone. “She is a highly respected motivational speaker, and it’s my understanding that she speaks at numerous events. I’m excited about the event, the individuals who will attend and I’m looking forward to hearing her speak,” Johnson said. Norman-Bellamy is the founder and president of KNB Publications. She is the author of 18 books and is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, or

6 arrested for beating driver who hit walker HENDERSON (AP) — Vance County officials have charged six men with assault in the beating of a driver who had struck a pedestrian. Officials say Eric Loznicka, 42, was attacked Saturday after he struck Rueben Wright, 18, near an outdoor theater in Henderson. Loznicka remains hospitalized. Sheriff’s officials said Carlton Ragland and James Ragland turned themselves in to deputies after the incident. Less Ragland, Lonnie Hargrove, Damien Trowbridge, and Avone Fouch were arrested Wednesday. The six are charged with assault inflicting serious injury. A hearing is set April 18 in District Court. It wasn’t clear if they have lawyers. Vance County sheriff’s officials said more arrests are possible. Deputies say Loznicka was pulled from his truck and kicked and struck by several people. Witnesses said Wright had been standing in the road.

ACFW. She is also the founder of Cruisin’ for Christ, an unusual ministry that celebrates artists who use their talents to glorify God. Most recently, NormanBellamy launched the I Shall Live and Not Die (ISLAND) Movement. ISLAND is a life-changing motivational ministry with a vision to empower people with God-inspired faith, hope and determination. Women in History was created at Livingstone College by Katharine Osborne, a writer who loved literary arts and was instrumental in establishing and supporting a women’s symposium at Catawba College. “Katharine was a very loving and caring individual who was very supportive of Livingstone College as well as the United Negro College Fund and what it stood for,” Johnson said. “She was an educator and believed strongly in the education of young people. She regularly came to our Women in History events and was instrumental in selecting many of our speakers. Katharine is missed, but her legacy lives on, in part, because we continue having this annual program in her memory.”

CHARLOTTE (AP) — Law enforcement officials in North Carolina say more than 1,000 people were arrested during the state’s weeklong St. Patrick’s Day “Booze It and Lose It” campaign. The Charlotte Observer reported that officials say 1,013 people were charged during the crackdown by police, sheriff’s deputies and the North Carolina State Highway Patrol between March 11 and 17. North Carolina Transportation Secretary Gene Conti says he thinks the campaign saved “countless” lives. Mecklenburg County had the largest number of arrests with 124. Wake County was second with 94. Officials say they also arrested 490 fugitives and recovered two dozen stolen vehicles. The campaign included both checkpoints and “saturation patrols,” where large numbers of officers focus on specific parts of a highway.

Carolina seeks a different Final Four BY TOM CANAVAN Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. — Leslie McDonald remembers walking through the center of campus and down the main drag in Chapel Hill, N.C., last year and getting a sickening, uncomfortable feeling. People seemed to be staring, wondering what was wrong with the Tar Heels. The team that won the national title in 2009 had become mediocre in less than a year. The Final Four for North Carolina became a trip to New York for the NIT, and the Tar Heels couldn’t even win that. A year later, North Carolina’s back, and its sights are set on another national title. AssociAted Press Standing in the Tar Heels’ UNc’s dexter strickland attempts a windmill dunk during carway next is Marquette, a olina’s practice session on thursday. tough-minded team led by a

group of former junior college standouts that played its way into the NCAA party with a big win in the Big East tournament. The Tar Heels (28-7) will make their 31st appearance in an NCAA tournament regional semifinal when they face the Golden Eagles (24-11) on Friday night at the Prudential Center, the first time a regional has been held in New Jersey’s largest city. The winner will face Kentucky or Ohio State on Sunday for a spot in the Final Four in Houston. “This is a chance to play for the national championship,” North Carolina sophomore forward John Henson said Thursday. “Every day you step on the court from here on out, you’re playing for a national title. We just have to take these

last steps.” It’s been a remarkable turnaround for the Tar Heels, who lost 17 games last season and failed to qualify for the NCAA tournament for the first time since Roy Williams took over as coach in 2003-04. “It was kind of embarrassing, knowing you’re playing on the team and you are not getting the job done,” McDonald said of his freshman year. “At the same time, I didn’t want to have that feeling again. We as a team put the time in this summer. The preseason in the Bahamas and the three freshmen really helped us. We feel pretty good walking on campus now.” Those three freshmen are Harrison Barnes, Kendall Marshall and Reggie Bullock, and Barnes is special. The forward leads the team in scoring, av-

eraging 15.5 points. Junior forward Tyler Zeller averages 15.2 points and 7.1 rebounds, while Henson averages 11.9 points and 10.1 rebounds. “They are as fast as anybody in the country in the first 10 seconds of a possession,” Marquette’s energetic coach Buzz Williams said. “That will cause great problems for us, as it has every other opponent that they have played this year.” He then rattled off a slew of statistics about the Tar Heels, noting they were 25-2 when they outrebounded their opponent and that 35 percent of their points were scored on shots at the rim. “Part of that is because they are so far ahead of their opponent, if they miss a shot they can put it back in,” the Marquette coach added.

Duke’s repeat hopes fade vs. ‘Cats Cocoa BY BETH HARRIS Associated Press

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Derrick Williams carried Arizona in the first half, keeping the Wildcats in the game against Duke. His teammates returned the favor in the final 20 minutes with an offensive barrage that stunned the defending national champions. Williams scored 25 of his career-high 32 points in the first half of Arizona’s 93-77 victory Thursday night, helping the Wildcats reach the final eight for the first time since 2005. “As a team, we came together and willed ourselves to win,” said Lamont Jones, who added 16 points. “Derrick is a great player, but we all contribute.” The top-seeded Blue Devils (32-5) were sent packing from a regional semifinal for the second time in three years. Coach Mike Krzyzewski, with 900 wins, will have to wait until next season to resume his pursuit of Bob Knight’s record as the winningest men’s coach in Division I history. “The tournament is cruel,” Krzyzewski said. “It’s an abrupt end for everybody when you don’t win.” Solomon Hill added 13 points for the Wildcats, who shot 54 percent and made 9 of 15 3-pointers, including five by Williams. Williams had 13 rebounds to help his team dominate the boards, 40-27, while playing 15 minutes from his hometown of La Mirada. “It makes me feel great,” he said. “If we win this game on Saturday, we’ll be known as one of the greatest Arizona teams to play.” Fifth-seeded Arizona (307) will play Connecticut (299) on Saturday in the West Regional final.

seeded Huskies defeated No. 2 San Diego State 74-67 in the other semifinal. “A lot of people counted us out,” Jones said. “We kept on beating on the door, beating on the door until we were in.” Duke’s Kryie Irving scored 28 points in his most minutes since returning at the start of the NCAA tournament after missing 26 games with a toe injury. “After we lost the lead, I think everyone got a little rattled,” he said. “We tried to settle down, but by then it was too late.” Kyle Singler added 18 as one of three Blue Devils in second-half foul trouble. Nolan Smith was held to eight points — well under the senior’s 21-point average. “The way they played in the second half, they should win it all,” Smith said. “Williams is a monster. They hit us full force, and kept hitting. They did everything right, and we did a ton of things wrong.” Down by six points early in the second half, the Wildcats unleashed a scoring rampage that left the Blue Devils wondering what happened. Williams scored just two points during the 19-2 run that seemingly came out of nowhere, while five of his teammates did the rest, hitting from long range, driving to the basket and scoring off a fast break. “They just got on a real roll. When you get on a roll, you have more energy than the other guy,” Krzyzewski said. “We had no stop for them, and you kind of get overwhelmed there for a little bit. They knocked us back and got that double-digit lead.” Jones’ basket tied the game at 53 and the spurt end-

ranked third on the team with 11 assists last year in helping the Hornets to a 2A Central Carolina Conference championship and second-round state playoff appearance. She's achieved the trio of All-County, All-Conference and All-Region each of the last two seasons. Bryan and Karen Presnell, who signed with Catawba, will lead the Hornets in chasing another conference title this season. “Both of them are vital cogs in our success for the last two or three years,” said Salisbury coach Matt Parrish, who added that Bryan was a solid distribRyan Bisesi/sALisBUrY Post utor of the ball and handled salisbury soccer players Karen Presnell, corner kick duties. “They're

MOUNT ULLA — Cocoa is a no go. West Rowan football coach Scott Young said the Saturday, Sept. 10, matchup between his three-time defending state 3A champion and Cocoa High School of Cocoa Beach, Fla., also a three-time state champ, has been called off. “They scheduled a game with West Monroe, La.,” Young said. “They’re limited by the state to only play four out-of-state games and they felt like that was a bigger game for them.” Young had been excited about the prospect of playing Cocoa. Along with his game, North Rowan, West’s original opponent, was going to play another Florida team on Saturday, Sept. 10 in a doubleheader at West. The Falcons will enter the 2011 campaign with a 46-game winning streak the best in the nation. “We were trying to pump it with our kids,” Young said. “The level of competition was going way up. I think our guys were excited to see what we could do against a nationally ranked opponent and an elite team like that. “That opportunity’s gone.” The bright side, Young said, is that West and North will go back to its original schedule and play Friday, Sept. 9. Young said the game with Cocoa was bittersweet in that West and North would not play, the second straight year that would happen. “It’s a county rivalry,” said Young, who is happy to get the Cavaliers back on the schedule.

Presnell set for Catawba BY RYAN BISESI

Unlike her cohort, Salisbury defender Karen Presnell won't have to go far to further her soccer career. But like her teammate, Presnell joins a Southern Atlantic Conference school, which has been the subject of several conversations between Presnell, a Catawba signee, and teammate Jenna Bryan, who inked with Carson-Newman earlier this year. Two long-time teammates at Salisbury and through various AAU teams, they'll be rivals when they take the field this fall, but that's not to come between years of camaraderie developed. “Catawba and Carson-Newman have always had an intense rival-

ry,” Presnell said. “But we try not to make too much of it.” Presnell scored 13 of Salisbury’s first 17 goals to start the year, leading the Hornets to a hot 5-0-2 start that included a county tournament championship. She scored twice in the 3-0 win over Wheatmore Thursday night. “If we’re to have success this year, Karen and Jenna [Bryan] are vital to that happening,” Salisbury coach Matt Parrish said. Presnell had nine goals and seven assists in 2010, helping the Hornets to a 2A Central Carolina Conference crown and a second-round state playoff appearance. She says the Indians coaching staff sold her on staying in town. “The coach really won me over

No. 100 for Parrish From staff reports

Salisbury girls soccer coach Matt Parrish logged his 100th career win on Thursday as the unbeaten Hornets prevailed 3-0 at Wheatmore. He described the win as “brutal,” but he said it cheerfully. “The captains came over and apologized that No. 100 was so ugly,” Parrish said with a laugh. “I told them that at least I’d remember it. It might’ve been the ugliest win of that hundred.” Karen Presnell continued her inspired play for the Hornets (5-0-2). She scored twice, including a goal on a header off a corner that Parrish admitted was “really nice.” The Hornets also got the first goal of the season from Madison Kennedy, who’s always a big scoring threat. “If you’d told me Madison wouldn’t get her first goal until our seventh game and we’d still be undefeated, I would’ve called you a whole lot of names,” Parrish said. Jenna Bryan picked up her teamleading fifth assist, and Kennedy and Marlee Murphy also had helpers. Olivia Rankin made a couple of nice saves in goal. “There were times we controlled play, but there were also times when we were back on our heels with Wheatmore taking it to us,” Parrish said. “Conference play starts next week. We’ll have to be sharper. Alee Johnson, the Hornets’ firestarter, was injured in the Ledford game and is on crutches. She’s supposed to be out two weeks, although she plans to cut that timetable in half. “She’s one of the toughest competitors I’ve ever seen,” Parrish said. Salisbury plays at CCC opponent West Davidson on Monday.  West Rowan handled NPC opponent Carson 8-1 only 24 hours after winning a huge matchup at Statesville that gave the Falcons first place by themselves. “My goal for the week was to come out with two victories, and we accomplished that,” West coach Nick Brown said. “We were fortunate that we played well enough to win because we were tired.” Toni Lucente scored three goals and added an assist for the Falcons (7-1, 4-0). Allison Baucom and Brittany Gibbons scored two goals each and had two assists apiece. Rachel Brown also had an assist. Hannah Elmore scored for the Cougars. West is at East Rowan on Monday in a Relay For Life contest, while Carson is at home against South Rowan.

Damien Washington in the 100 (11.22 seconds) and long jump (20 feet, 8 inches), Jerrod Lipscomb in the 110 hurdles (14.75) and 300 hurdles (40.44), and Terrell Calliste in the 400 (53.84). The Wonders also won the 4x200 and 4x400 relays.  A.L. Brown’s girls scored 149 points to outdistance Mount Pleasant (78), Concord (65), Northwest (53) and Cannon (23). Iyana Gregory won the 400 (1:05.79), Natalie Tresslar won the 800 (2:41), and Hannah Bonarrigo won the 3200 (13:39). Chinii Knox won the triple jump (32-0), and Samara Tisdale won the shot put (34-81⁄2) and discus (82-10). Brown’s girls won the 4x200, 4x400 and 4x800 relays.

 Pro baseball New York Mets reliever Bobby Parnell (East Rowan) picked up a win this week in a relief outing against Atlanta. Parnell is 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA in eight spring appearances. He’s struck out nine and walked three in 82⁄3 innings.  The Los Angeles Dodgers sent Jerry Sands (Catawba) to their minor league camp for assignment, and he’s expected to open the season at either Double A Chattanooga or Triple A Albuquerque, probably the latter. Sands batted .348 (8-for-23) this spring with two home runs. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly lavished praise on Sands, comparing him to St.Louis star Matt Holliday.

The wind chill was near freezing on Thursday, but the Mountaineers (11-11) got a victory behind pitcher Ryan Arrowood.  Liberty’s Keegan Linza (North Rowan) leads the Big South Conference in innings pitched (382⁄3) and is in the top five in ERA (2.33), strikeouts (30) and wins (four).

Leslie signs with Bears after starring for Wonders BY MIKE LONDON

KANNAPOLIS — A.L. Brown linebacker Andrew Leslie settled on Lenoir-Rhyne after a recruiting tug-of-war that involved at least eight schools, including Catawba, the Bears’ biggest rival. The East-West All-Star’s skill set — 6-foot1, 220 pounds, strong, smart and quick enough — got him on the recruiting chalkboards of programs ranging from N.C. State to Division III Methodist. N.C. State was interested in attracting Leslie as a walk-on, but most schools had academic/athletic packages to offer. Leslie was flattered that the Wolfpack was interested in putting him on its depth chart, but what he wanted was a smaller school where he’d have a realistic chance to play football as well as get an education. His dream school was Wofford, where A.L. Brown product Lee Basinger became an AllAmerican and a Hall of Famer. “Then Wofford decided to sign only two linebackers,” Leslie explained. “I was the third man.” Recruiting a Wonder is a little different from recruiting players at most schools because a Wonder already has grown up in a college atmosphere. “Some colleges that recruited me didn’t have as good a stadium or as good a weight room or as much tradition as what I was used to,” Leslie said. Military schools VMI and The Citadel had some appeal for Leslie, but it was Division II South Atlantic Conference schools LenoirRhyne, Wingate and Catawba that moved to the forefront. Leslie was impressed with Catawba’s coaching staff. “Coach (Chip) Hester is a great guy and Coach McComb (linebackers coach Todd Mc-

Comb) impressed me,” Leslie said. “The only thing wrong was the depth chart. Catawba is really deep in linebackers. I just felt like I had a chance to play earlier at Lenoir-Rhyne.” Lenoir-Rhyne is a program on the rise. The Bears finished off a 7-4 season last November with wins against frequent tormentors Carson-Newman and Catawba. L-R actually won four of its last five, and there were some who believed the Bears were the SAC’s best squad by season’s end. L-R’s strength was defense. The Bears play a 3-4, which requires two active, physical inside linebackers. Leslie, the middle backer in Brown’s 4-3 scheme, should fit in to what they do in Hickory. “L-R recruited me as a “reading” linebacker,” Leslie said. “I liked a lot about L-R. It’s a small school, but it’s got a bigger school feel. I liked that it felt like a blue-collar football program, and I liked that it’s one of the top schools in the state academically.” Lenoir-Rhyne landed a very good player. The people who doubt Leslie worry about whether he can run well enough for the college game, but linebacker is more about changing direction, instincts and quickness, then 40yard dash times. “My 40 times are average,” Leslie said with a shrug. “But my shuttle time (a measure of lateral quickness) is one of the best in the school. What determines if you can play linebacker is basically how quick you can hit a gap — not how fast you can run 40 yards.” A.L. Brown defensive coordinator Noah Lyon is a firm believer in Leslie. “We brought Andrew up to the varsity as a sophomore,” he said. “Started every game as a junior. Then his senior year, starting with the Thomasville game (Week 3), he became a leader for us. He made all the calls. He made all the adjustments. “I watched a whole lot of film with that kid, and by Friday night, he knew what play was

coming. He understands what’s going on out there. He’ll be successful.” In Brown’s 11-game regular season, Leslie was the primary tackler 128 times and added 83 assists. His 11 tackles for loss, included six sacks. He had one interception and batted down three passes on his way to All-SPC honors. The highlight tape that assistant coach Todd Hagler helped Leslie’s family put together to send out to colleges featured his games against Northwest Cabarrus, Concord and Kings Mountain. Leslie is proudest, not surprisingly, of the Concord game. Brown won 28-21 on its way to a 12-2 campaign. “The one number I remember from the season is that we held (Concord back) Dominique Posey to 19 yards,” Leslie said. Leslie found out recently he was picked for the East-West All-Star Game that will be played in Greensboro. Hagler will also be part of that game as an assistant, working under Salisbury coach Joe Pinyan. Hagler, a Lenoir-Rhyne graduate himself, is thrilled he and Leslie will be on the same team one last time. “Because of the way he works, he deserves to be in that game,” Hagler said. “I know (Alexander Central DaviD livengooD/sALisBUrY Post head coach and West assistant) Tom A.L. Brown linebacker Andrew Leslie will play for LenoirHarper has seen Andrew’s tape and rhyne next season. is very excited about having him as one of the linebackers.” Leslie jokes that his weight rose to 235 “It’s in July, so I’ve got to be in great pounds when he was on a “see food diet” — you shape,” he said. “All the players will be good, see it, you eat it — around the Christmas hol- and it’ll be at a different speed from high idays, but he plans to report for East-West duty school.

Presnell noted improving the leadership aspect of her game was a priority amidst a team party in the school cafeteria to celebrate the

Among the decorative flair included both sides of a cake that featured half Catawba colors and half Carson-Newman colors. “This is the first time we've ever had a dual-signing day,” Parrish said. “Two outstanding players and two outstanding players that get to be arch-enemies next year. The dichotomy of the whole day is fantastic.” Presnell, who's played in the backfield since her sophomore season has even tak-

That's what it calls for.” The Indians were 7-8-3 last season and 3-4-2 in the SAC, good enough for sixth in the league. In 2009, Catawba went 13-5-2 and was 5-2-1 in the conference. Parrish says her lunchpail-mentality will serve her well at the next level. “She's more of a strong,

silent leader,” Salisbury coach Matt Parrish said. “You can tell her to run through a brick wall and she'll do it. She’s that type of player.” Presnell, voted one of the top six players in the region last year, visited Brevard and gave UNC Pembroke a look. “The coach really won me over,” Presnell said. “He talked about how much they really wanted me and how I could make a difference on their team.”

Jones and Jamelle Horne had five points each, while Williams focused on rebounding. “The second half was just complete nastiness, as coach would say,” Kevin Parrom said. “We came out swinging. We didn’t let up. We knew they were just going to focus on Derrick and that’s when other guys came in and stepped up. It shows that it’s not just Derrick Williams who is on this team.” Horne’s dunk extended Arizona’s lead to 77-63 as the Wildcats’ fans roared, thrilled to see their team making a deep run in the tournament a season after the school’s 25-year streak of consecutive appearances ended. The Wildcats closed the first half on an 18-13 run,

After being a defensive center mid-fielder during most of her high school career, Bryan will move to outside back for C-N. “I've always been very flexible with my position,” Bryan said. “Even though I'm on defense, I can still run up on offense and be involved.”“Right now, getting in shape is a big thing,” Bryan said. “Working on my strength building, its going to be a higher competition level” “You can always improve upon your touches anytime in soccer,” she said. “Overall, just working really hard is what I'm planning on doing to be successful.” While in Tennessee, Bryan played on a 18U club team at 15, which elevated her game playing among those older than her. Bryan and Presnell played with

capped by Williams’ 3-pointer just before the buzzer, that left them trailing 44-38. He hit back-to-back shots from the same spot at the top of the 3-point line during the spurt in which his teammates contributed just five points. The Wildcats closed within one point earlier in the half, and Duke responded by outscoring them 14-7, including eight in a row, to take its largest lead, 31-20. Irving didn’t start the game, but he quickly had an impact once he got in. He scored seven points in the run that built Duke’s biggest lead. Irving came in as one of the nation’s most touted freshmen, and he scored double figures in all 11 games he played in his abbreviated season. He has yet to decide if he’ll return or enter the NBA draft. “I could definitely see myself wearing a Duke uniform again,” he said. “I don’t want to take it off right now.”

FCCA Rowan, which has three members playing at Catawba next year.“It helped me to play on the U18 team when I was 15,” Bryan said. “There was definitely higher competition.” Carson-Newman was 8-1 in the SAC last year and 11-7 overall. Bryan knows her soccer relationship with Presnell will transfer from teammate to rival next year, but looks forward to the dynamic, with playful banter already starting prior to enrolling. “I try not to talk smack,” Bryan joked. We kid around that we're going to beat each other up. That's the kind of friends we are. Actually, three girls from my club team are going to Catawba and I'm going to Carson-Newman. I think it'll be fun and interesting when we play each other. They'll be a deeper rival.” When Catawba plays a home-and-home series next year with Carson-Newman, would Bryan take it easy on her former teammate? “No,” she says empathically. “Why would I do that?” Bryan plans to major in elementary education.

Gators top BYU in overtime Associated Press

The NCAA Tournament roundup ... NEW ORLEANS — Alex Tyus is like most of these Florida Gators — good at a lot of things, but lacking one dominant skill. He’s usually content to blend in and be just another part of the team’s effectively anonymous style. On the biggest stage of his career, the senior’s impact was obvious. Tyus had 19 points and 17 rebounds as Florida beat BYU 83-74 in overtime Thursday night, chasing a bloodied Jimmer Fredette and the Cougars out of the NCAA tournament. Now the Gators will be playing for a spot in the Final Four for the first time since 2007 — ascending back into the nation’s elite after a hiatus from the spotlight following back-to-back national championships in 2006 and ‘07. “It’s been so rewarding for me to see them make the journey they’ve made to this point now,” Florida coach Billy Donovan said. “It’s been very, very rewarding and fulfilling

for me, and I hope in some way I’ve been able to give them as much as they’ve given me.” While Fredette was the star attraction, scoring 32 points on 11 for 29 shooting in the final game of his college career, Florida countered with balance. Kenny Boynton added 17 points — while also playing tight defense on Fredette — and Erving Walker and Chandler Parsons both scored 16. Boynton and Parsons each hit 3-pointers in overtime as Florida outscored BYU 15-6. UConn 74, SDSU 67 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Kemba Walker sliced up San Diego State’s defense for 22 points on shots from all angles and distances in the second half of Connecticut’s West regional semifinal. The Aztecs only kept him down once: A shoulder bump from Jamaal Franklin sent Walker crashing to the Honda Center floor, drawing a technical foul and two momentumkilling free throws. Walker denied doing any acting on the play. He’s still the star of these resilient

Huskies’ remarkable production. Walker scored 36 points in yet another dynamic postseason performance, driving UConn down the stretch Thursday night to a 74-67 victory that put the Huskies on the brink of another Final Four. “I’m just trying to do the best I can do,” said Walker, who scored 12 straight points for UConn in the final minutes. “Whether it’s scoring, talking, getting their confidence up or giving an assist, I’m just trying to do whatever is possible to enhance this team.” Butler 61, Wisconsin 54 NEW ORLEANS — Matt Howard had 20 points and 12 rebounds, and Butler sent home yet another higher seed in the NCAA tournament with a 61-54 victory over Wisconsin on Thursday night. Shelvin Mack scored 13 points and Shawn Vanzant had 10 for the eighth-seeded Bulldogs (26-9), who led by 20 points in the second half before withstanding a late rally by the fourth-seeded Badgers.

Nowitzki had 30 points and 11 rebounds, Terry contributed 18 points, and the Mavericks rallied down the stretch for a 104-96 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday night, giving Dallas 50 wins for the 11th straight season. Nowitzki and Terry combined for 19 points in the final quarter, both going 4 for 7 from the field, to help the Mavs win for the third time in four games. “Dirk said during a timeout, ‘We can’t lose this one,’” Terry said. On just about every fourthquarter possession, coach Rick Carlisle called for the pick-and-roll with Nowitzki and Terry. Dallas finished with an 11-2 run over the final 2:38. “It’s the key to our success late in games, it’s no secret, if it’s a close game late in the fourth quarter, Coach is going to ring up our numbers and we need to answer,” Terry said. “We work extremely hard on (the pick-and-roll) in practice, and during these types of games our team needs us and that’s what clutch players do by coming up big when the team needs them most.” Shawn Marion added 17 points, Peja Stojakovic had 16, and Tyson Chandler came up with nine points and 10 rebounds for Dallas. Anthony Randolph had a career-high 31 points with 11 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who’ve lost their last five games and are without in-

jured All-Star forward Kevin Love. Randolph made his first start of the season in place of Love. Randolph, acquired from the Knicks in a threeteam trade on Feb. 22, had a 23-point first half, 17 in the second quarter. “We’re missing a huge part of our team without Kevin being here,” said Randolph. “I think if he was here, we definitely would have won the game.” Dallas was in front by as many as eight in the third quarter, but the Timberwolves came back to grab a 95-93 lead with 3:17 to play on Wayne Ellington’s 22-footer. Chandler’s three-point play with 2:38 left put Dallas back in front for good, 96-95. Hornets 121, Jazz 117 (OT) SALT LAKE CITY — Emeka Okafor banked in a 20-footer at the regulation buzzer to force overtime, and reserve Aaron Gray scored six points in the extra period to lead the New Orleans Hornets to a 121117 victory over the shorthanded Utah Jazz on Thursday night. David West scored 29 points for the Hornets before being taken off in a wheelchair holding his head and grimacing in pain after going down hard after a powerful dunk that tied the game at 103. Paul Millsap hit two free throws to put the Jazz ahead 105-103 with 1.3 seconds to go, but Okafor, who had subbed back in when West was injured, managed to get off the game-tying shot. Millsap had 33 points to lead the Jazz, who have dropped four straight. Chris Paul scored five of his 24 points in overtime for the Hornets, and Trevor Ariza added 14, including a 3-pointer in the extra period. While the Jazz were coming off an 0-3 road trip, the

into the Southeast regional final, where the Bulldogs meet Florida (29-7) for a trip to the Final Four.

dirk Nowitzki, right, had 30 points and 11 rebounds in dallas’ win against Minnesota. Hornets hadn’t played since Saturday, and coach Monty Williams used the time to hold some closed-door practices. “We tried to create a bunker mentality, playoff mentality,” Williams said of the practice sessions. “Some things were said in practices that I didn’t want anybody else to hear. That’s just the way it’s got to be for us.” The Hornets were coming off an 89-85 loss to Boston, playing what Williams called the most undisciplined second half they’ve had all year. “Guys watched the film, took it to heart,” Williams said. “We had some spirited practices this past week. It was definitely what we needed.” The Hornets were starting a three-game Western trip just a 1/2-game ahead of eighth-place Memphis in the

Western Conference playoff race. They also face Phoenix and the Los Angeles Lakers on the trip. “It’s really huge for us to get off to a good start,” Williams said. Williams knows there are doubters after the Hornets finished 37-45 last season and missed the playoffs for the first time in three years. “I’m sure (the players) are hearing all the stuff people are saying and writing about our team,” said Williams, in his first season as coach. “The best thing is we control our destiny. We have no one to blame but ourselves.” The Jazz entered Thursday four games behind eighth-place Memphis with 10 to go. In mid-January, they were as many as 14 games over .500.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Spencer Levin led after the opening round for the third time this year, so that’s nothing new. It was his score Thursday afternoon at Bay Hill that surprised him and everyone else. In warm, blustery conditions on a course that allowed only three rounds in the 60s and the most rounds in the 80s in nearly two decades, Levin had a 6-under 66 and a threeshot lead over Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Tiger Woods and his power group of Dustin Johnson and Gary Woodland provided the entertainment everyone expected, although not this variety. Woodland hit a tee shot onto another golf course, Johnson wound up 80 yards over a green and onto the next tee, and Woods’ angrily tossed his wedge after his best shot of the day. Their scores weren’t impressive. Woods missed a 10-foot par putt on the last hole for a 73, his highest opening round since 1999 at Bay Hill, where he is a six-time winner. Johnson and Woodland, the winner last week at Innisbrook, each shot 77. Levin built the largest 18hole lead of the year on the PGA Tour, but even that doesn’t illustrate how well he played. His 66 was nearly nine shots better than the average score at Bay Hill, which featured gusts over 20 mph and crusty conditions in the afternoon. Fowler and Mahan played in the morning, as did Phil Mickelson, who opened with a 70.

Stafford posted a message to his Twitter account indicating he felt good throwing in Athens, Ga., two months after having surgery on his right shoulder. He tweeted Thursday that he was heading to “rehab, lift and run” during the NFL lockout. He added: “Never know when the owners will let us back in to start playing.” Stafford played in just three games last season. He played in 10 games as a rookie after being drafted No. 1 overall out of Georgia in 2009. The Lions can receive reports on Stafford’s progress, but they are not permitting to make contact with him during the lockout.

Kentucky track gets facelift Associated Press

SPARTA, Ky. — Kentucky Speedway’s facelift should be complete well before NASCAR’s top series visits the track for the first time in July. Officials said Thursday the major parts of the ambitious expansion project will be done by late May, well before the green flag drops on the first Sprint Cup race at the 1.5-mile tri-oval located about halfway between Cincinnati and Louisville on July 9. Gov. Steve Beshear toured the facility on Thursday and struggled to put the six-month overhaul in perspective. “Wow, what a place we’re going to have here,” Beshear said. “It’s very impressive what is going on here, all of the AssociAted Press Kentucky Gov. steve Beshear, right, tours the improvements at Kentucky speedway with track advances that we’ve made in a very short time. I always general manager Mark simendinger on thursday. knew when (Speedway Motor-

sports Inc. owner) Bruton Smith said he was going to do something, he did it.” And do it ahead of schedule. Despite the scope of the expansion, SMI construction manager Steve Swift called it one of the easier facelifts he’s done for the company, which owns several NASCAR-sanctioned tracks including Bristol, Charlotte and Texas Motorspeedways. “We’ll be finished early,” Swift said. “Right up until (the race) we’ll be doing small things.” The big things should be wrapped up less than a year after the track finally received its long-coveted Cup date following a lengthy court battle between the former owners and NASCAR. The legal battle finally ended last spring and in August the track became the first new

venue to join the Cup schedule since Chicago and Kansas were added in 2001. Smith, who purchased the track in late 2008, promised to spend $90-100 million in renovations. He didn’t waste time getting started either. Construction on new grandstands began just days after last September’s IndyCar race. The track is adding 40,000 grandstand seats to expand capacity to 117,000. There is also room for 4,000 recreational vehicles, up from 1,000 before the renovation. General manager Mark Simendinger joked the track hardly looks like the same place he walked into when it opened in 2000. “I feel like a guy who just sold his house,” he said. “I thought we had a nice house until these guys came in and renovated everything.”

15 Triangle: Remembering









Certain impediments and/or restrictions that have dogged your steps are likely to be alleviated in the next year. Recognize when they are gone, so you’ll know when you are free to do what you want. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Although the weekend is upon you and a lot of fun things are in the making, keep your priorities in order, or some of your duties may keep you working longer than necessary. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Think twice about volunteering to manage a job for another, because even though your intentions are good, some unknown quantities could gum up the works. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — When negotiating a matter of significance, be as forthright as possible. If you think skirting the truth is a shrewd move, you are likely to end up tripping over your own feet. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Sticking to proven, tested methods is likely to be far more productive than experimenting with something new. Don’t try to change the plan in the middle of the game. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Things aren’t likely to work out too well if you attempt to use your social contacts for personal gain. Trying to mix business and pleasure will hurt you greatly. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If your financial advisers are doing their level best, don’t upset the applecart by thinking you can do better. Inexperience can lead to a great loss. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Although your friends understand and accept your inquisitive nature, you can, at times, push them too far with some probing questions. Lay off, already! Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Even though it might look like you’re getting what you want, if your methods are inconsistent, things can change on a dime. Stay the course. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — It is best to not take for granted all those little things you do by rote. Complications that could set you astray are breeding in unexpected places. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Overanalyzing things can erroneously steer you into a negative frame of mind, making your life miserable. Try to keep balanced. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Do not put someone, even unintentionally, in a position where they have to do more for you than is reasonable. Keep things in proper perspective at all times. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Certain important objectives of yours might not be so vital to anybody else, so if you want any help from another, a little salesmanship is in order. Politeness will help.

Is hypothyroidism linked to high cholesterol? Dear Dr. Gott: My cholesterol is very high. I cannot tolerate any of the statins. I’ve been on many and have problems with pain and weakness in my legs. I also have an underactive thyroid, for which I take Synthroid. I have read in different medical books that hypothyroid disDR. PETER ease is a cause of high cholesGOTT terol. I am trying to eat right (fruits and vegetables, no red meat, low salt and no cheese). I exercise. Is there anything else I can do to help this serious problem? Please help me! Dear Reader: Hypothroidism causes decreased metabolic

activity and has been linked with elevated blood levels of cholesterol, and particularly in those people without a previous history of hypercholesterolemia. It is believed if the elevated levels are due to hypothyroidism, an improvement will be noted after hormone treatment is begun. In January 2011, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) released the results of a survey on the thyroid/cholesterol relation. They reported a new survey found that fewer than half the adults diagnosed with hypercholesterolemia knew whether they had ever even been tested for thyroid disease, despite the well-documented connection between the two conditions. Following diet, thyroid disease is the most common secondary cause of high cholesterol lev-

els. If there is a decrease in the body’s ability to metabolize cholesterol, an excess of cholesterol in the blood may occur. If the thyroid gland is underactive and producing too little thyroid hormone, metabolism slows and can have a direct bearing on the body’s ability to metabolize blood cholesterol. Once treated, symptoms can be relieved and the patient’s quality of life can be improved. The New York Times ran an article about the dilemma on Feb. 21 of this year. In part, the article stressed low thyroid levels being linked with a greater risk for high triglycerides, LDL and total cholesterol levels. It went on to state the treatment of hypothyroidism can significantly reduce cholesterol levels, but research is still mixed on whether mild hypothyroidism

is even associated with unhealthy cholesterol levels. It appears to me that routine lab testing — including thyroid and cholesterol levels — is critical because from all I read, it appears we commonly fail to test for both conditions; yet once thyroid medication is introduced and a connection is made, things should level off. You are on the right track by modifying your diet and exercising. Avoid processed cold cuts, kielbasa, sausage, fried foods, hot dogs and ham. I’m reluctant to mention eggs, since it appears every other week a new report bashes or endorses eggs as being good for us. Apart from the steps you are taking, over-the-counter remedies might include niacin or supplements containing plant sterols and stanols for helping to lower your cho-

lesterol.

UN peace messenger Michael Douglas remembers Japan UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Actor and U.N. messenger for peace Michael Douglas offered his condolences Thursday to the Japanese people struggling amid nuclear crisis after this month’s catastrophic earthquake and tsunami. Douglas spoke at U.N. headquarters alongside a new exhibit of petitions containing the signatures of more than 1 million people calling on the world’s leaders for the abolition of nuclear weapons. “Our hearts go out to the Japanese people as they deal with this catastrophe,” Douglas said. “The Japanese have a history of rebuilding their country after natural and manmade catastrophes.”

Vincent van Gogh said, “Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.” Yesterday we looked at a deal in which declarer had to win three tricks from a suit of queen-jack-fourth opposite ace-third. We learned that the best play is to cash the ace, then to lead (if necessary) twice toward the hand with the two honors. Is this deal in

the same family? You are in three no-trump, and West leads the heart queen to dummy’s king. How would you continue? This is the same boring auction that we had yesterday — but at least it gets us to the play quicker! First, count your top tricks. Here, you have six: two hearts, one diamond and three clubs. You can probably get two more winners from diamonds, since the missing five cards will usually split 32. However, you do not have time to play on that suit. The defense would establish and run its heart suit first. You would lose at least two dia-

monds, two hearts and one spade. Instead, you must try to take three spade tricks. So, at trick two, lead a spade to your king, the hand with two honors. When you win the trick, go back to the board with a club and call for dummy’s second low spade. Since East has to win with his ace, your contract is safe. After East returns a heart to dummy’s ace, you cash the spade jack and claim, having three hand entries to reach the spade queen. Remember that when you do not also have the 10, lead toward the hand with the two honors.

WEATHER UNDERGROUND’S NATIONAL WEATHER Expect more wet weather across the Western US on Friday, while the East will see a mild day. A series of low pressure systems continues trekking through the West, from the coast to the Rocky Mountains. The system pushes a cold front over the Intermountain West and into the Great Basin. At the same time, another trough leads this system eastward, which reaches off the Central Rockies, into the Central and Southern Plains. Expect another 6 inches of snow across the Sierras, with up to 10 inches above 7,000 feet, while the mountains in Utah and Colorado will only see 2 to 4 inches of new snow. The leading system will kick up light rain showers across the Plains, with light snow in the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest as high temperatures remain in the 30s. Thunderstorms may develop ahead of this system as it pulls moisture and additional energy in from the Gulf of Mexico. If storms develop, they will be contained to the Lower Mississippi River Valley and Gulf states. In the North, a ridge of high pressure builds over the Great Lakes and Northeast, as a low pressure system moves eastward and into the Atlantic Ocean. This brings dry and pleasant Spring weather to spread over the Northeastern US. Expect a few patchy clouds with highs ranging in the 40s and 50s from the Midwest, up the Ohio River Valley, and into New England.
