PENCER — The Potomac Pacemaker, a passenger plane built in the mid-1900s, lies on

its belly like a beached whale in the Back Shop of the North Carolina Transportation Museum. Now stranded in the expansive warehouse, the Douglas DC-3 passenger plane awaits a spot on display beside the museum’s other vehicles. One day each month, volunteers work diligently to restore the airplane to prime condition for the benefit of future museum

visitors. Robert Reed, a member of the Piedmont Aviation Historical Society, decided to lead the restoration project at the Transportation Museum in February 2010. “I had seen it shortly after it came from a museum in Durham in 2004,” Reed said. “Talking to some of my colleagues after seeing it, we said, ‘I don’t know. That airplane’s not in a condition to ever be restored again.’” But early last year, he got a closer look at the World War IIera plane and changed his mind. The Advance resident began to seek out other interested people at the Spencer museum. Reed’s list of active volunteers contains about two dozen people, and another 15 are listed

On the last work day on April 16, Reed said he was surprised to see 17 people show up in spite of a severe midday storm that produced a tornado in Rowan County. The volunteers have met on the third Saturday of every month except December since April of last year. They have worked 11 days total, spending most of that time gutting the airplane. Most of the interior will not be visible on display. Reed estimates it will take another 5 years of monthly work

KANNAPOLIS — When Kannapolis parents found out 118 of the school system’s employees were given pink slips to help fill a $2.4 million budget hole, they decided it was time to take a stand. They started calling, emailing, snailmailing and talking to anyone who would listen. And when they heard about the North Carolina Association of Educators’ rally in Raleigh, set for next week, they began making plans to car pool and bus local residents to the event. But with a start time of 4 p.m., Laura Patenaude, a member of the Parent/Teacher Organization at Forest Park Elementary, said many parents simply couldn’t make the trip. “People couldn’t take time off work because they are already worried about their jobs with the economy the way it is,” she said. That’s when the parent organizations decided to host their own rally, right in their own backyard. Organizers hope to draw 4,000 people to the event, which will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. May 13 at A.L. Brown High School. Patenaude said information about how to contact state legislators will be available during the rally. “We’re finding that the community and parents are not informed about what’s going on with (state) budget cuts,” she said. “One of the biggest reasons for the rally is to inform them about what

She said without funding, technology could become outdated. Although the PTO is supplementing those funds now, the parent-teacher group won’t be able to meet 100 percent of those needs. The teacher-student ratio is another concern for parents. “If that goes down, students won’t be getting as much attention,” Patenaude said. Clark agrees that the effects of layoffs will be felt in the classroom. “It hurts,” he said. “It hurts

BLANKETS FOR BABIES South Rowan grad creates project for hospital’s neonatal unit B Y J OANIE M ORRIS For the Salisbury Post

Taylor Hartsell has always known she was interested in going into nursing. After graduating last year from South Rowan High School, Hartsell chose Rowan-Cabarrus Community College for its programs in the medical field. “When I first started, I wanted to be a neonatal nurse, but I love kids too much,” said Hartsell from her home on Monday. After finding out that sometimes the babies die, Hartsell changed her mind. ”There’s no way I would have been able to do that. I changed majors really quickly.” That’s when she decided to study radiology. At the same time, she was working towards her Gold Award from the Girl Scouts — the equivalent of the Boy Scouts’ Eagle — and started making blankets to cover the incubators in the neonatal unit at Levine Children’s Hospital. She chose the hospital because of its proximity to her home and the fact that her aunt works in the neonatal unit there. “I asked her if there was anything they needed in the hospital,” said Hartsell. That’s when the blankets were suggested. It was only after starting the incubator blankets that Hartsell discovered nurses at the hospital create molds of the hands and feet of babies who don’t survive. Those molds were placed inside washcloths and given to the parents of the babies. “When I first started, we toured the hospital and went through all the nurseries,” said Hartsell. “They showed us this packet. It had the wristband of a child that didn’t make it. They made a mold of their hands and feet. They put their hand or foot inside the mold and all they had was a washcloth to wrap it up. … “That’s how they gave them,” Hartsell said in amazement. The molds are quite fragile and Hartsell knew that those little molds should be given to the parents in something sturdier. That’s when she decided in addition to the blankets, she’d create keepsake pockets for


Police: Man was shot at Wilco-Hess SALISBURY — A Salisbury man was in stable condition Monday at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center after police said he was shot in the parking area of the Wilco-Hess on East Innes Street early Sunday. Bruce Junior Robinson, 29, is in stable condition, and was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center by friends, and then flown to Baptist. The shooting, police said, was the result of an altercation in the parking area of the gas station. Robinson has previously been convicted of resisting a public officer, selling a schedule II controlled substance and possession of a schedule II controlled substance. According to the N.C. Department of Corrections website, Robinson had seven infractions while incarcerated between August of 2001 until June of 2002, including disobeying orders, being in an unauthorized location and creating an offensive condition. Police have been unable to speak to Robinson, but urge anyone with information to contact them at 704-638-5333.

Linda Fisher looks on as Taylor Hartsell sews for Blankets for Hope. the hospital. Hartsell created 50 of the pockets and 100 neonatal incubator blankets — part to go over the baby inside the incubator and part to go over the top of the entire incubator unit to keep the babies from becoming over stimulated, which can be bad for them. “The pocket is thick enough, the molds won’t get crushed,” said Hartsell. Each pocket is 5-by-5 inches and has a flap to hold the molds inside. Hartsell made them in different colors — blue gingham for boys, purple and pink for girls. The blue ones are adorned with blue safety pins and bows, and the girl’s purple and pink ones have fabric and button flowers. The pockets are a keepsake for the parents of babies that don’t make it. Hartsell said the entire project was called Blankets for Hope because she wanted to deliver a bit of hope to the neonatal unit at the hospital. While she made more blankets, Hartsell said the pockets were more meaningful for her. “Before we ever did them,

Two charged with robbery, kidnapping

Mold pockets sit on the table in front of a photo board. Molds are made of the hands and feet of infants who die in the hospital, and the molds are then given to the parents. (the molds) were getting wrapped in a wash cloth,” said Hartsell. “We made something that is sturdier and stronger to hold them so they wouldn’t break.” The blankets will stay at the hospital to be used over and over in the neonatal unit, but the pockets will go home with the parents of children who pass away. Hartsell said

the hospital works hard to make sure babies make it, and that’s why she did more blankets than pockets — they won’t run out anytime soon. “I haven’t thought about it, but (when they run out) I’ll probably end up making more,” she said. Contact Joanie Morris at 704-797-4248.

SALISBURY — Two people were in jail Monday night under $20,000 bonds each, charged earlier in the day with robbery with a firearm and kidnapping that happened Sunday morning. Marco Antonio Pina-Reza, 20, and Katlin Anne Mazzocchi, 17, a couple residing at 519 Chrysler St., Kannapolis, were charged in the home invasion. Officers were called to 280 Garmon Road Sunday morning by 16year-old Cody Killian who said PinaReza and Mazzocchi had just come to his home, pulled a gun on him and PINA-REZA tied him up to a chair using Duct tape. Killian told authorities the two left with a suitcase and gym bag filled with items from the home, including a laptop computer, a 12gauge shotgun, a rifle, flashlights, a video recorder, jewelry, passports and birth certificates. Killian’s family was at church at the time of the invasion, but were MAZZOCCHI there when officers arrived. Killian identified Pina-Reza and Mazzocchi as the suspects, authorities said, but said he was not friends with them. Authorities are attempting to locate the stolen property. Calls to Killian’s family were not returned.

Code enforcement: Higher fees equal lower taxes Have a bubbly personality? The search is on for new Miss Cheerwine Special to the Salisbury Post

have been getting some good feedback on the recent articles that I have written. I have two more ready to go in the hopper, but it occurred to me that what I’m about to say here is more important than wet crawl spaces or how construction has changed. Everyone knows how trying these times are financially. I would hazard a guess that you know at least one person perhaps more who are either under-employed or unemDANA ployed. Even if you HART have escaped the economic downturn completely, the price of everything just keeps going up. So this is the perfect opportunity for me to explain why increasing user fees for building permits would make your taxes go down. First I need to pose a few questions. When was the last time you needed a building permit? If you decided to add a room onto your


house, do you think that your neighbor should chip in and help you with the cost? If your neighbor decides to build a room or a new house or some company from New Jersey decides to build a restaurant, do you think that you should have to help pay their costs? As much as all of us like to help people — and especially our neighbors — I don’t know many people who want to help pay to build their neighbor a house or help some out-of-town contractor to build a business. Once upon a time, the Rowan County Building Code Enforcement Department brought in more money than was required to issue permits and do inspections. That money above and beyond the department’s costs went into the general fund and helped to pay for other county services. That user fee helped to reduce your taxes by as much as $600,000 a year just a few short years ago. Now the tables are turned. Our user fees do not cover the department expenses as they once did. I have requested that we alter our fees in order that the department’s income more closely resembles expenses.

By raising our user fees, you, the citizens of Rowan County, will not be subsidizing builders, developers and the occasional neighbor who is building. It was suggested that I solicit feedback on my proposal, so now I’m asking. Go to the usual places where you comment, such as blogs, letters to the editor or your elected officials. You can even email me if you like at dana.hart@rowancountync. gov. Since the downturn in the economy, we have lost three building inspectors and three contract workers. The people who buy permits and require inspections expect a certain level of service. Between issuing permits and performing inspections, we are able to maintain the level of service those people expect, like next-day inspections and same-day permits. It costs about $65 to perform an inspection. By comparison, most home service businesses that make house calls such as appliance repair companies or your plumber are going to charge at least $75 just to pull up in the driveway.

Kannapolis to serve beer at summer concerts B Y H UGH F ISHER

KANNAPOLIS — Concerts in Kannapolis’ Village Park this summer will offer a new refreshment option: cold beer. The Kannapolis City Council voted to allow beer and wine sales at concerts in the park. Kannapolis Parks and Recreation will oversee the placement of a beer garden — an enclosed area separate from the existing concession sales — where alcohol could be sold and consumed. Currently, alcohol is not permitted on the lawn at concerts, though Parks and Recreation Director Gary Mills acknowledged that booze finds its way into the park in concertgoers’ coolers. Mills said the beer garden will help end that problem and keep alcohol away from family seating areas. Not everyone was convinced. Mayor Bob Misenheimer said he was concerned alcohol sales would hurt Village Park’s family-friendly atmosphere. But the policy passed on a 5to-2 vote, with Misenheimer and Councilman Roger Haas opposing the measure. Haas then put forth an amendment limiting alcohol sales to Village Park’s summer events. The policy as originally worded would have allowed alcohol sales at any city-sponsored event. Haas said he’d like to see alcohol sales start small, then expand if successful. The amendment passed on a 4-to-3 vote, with councilmen Dar-

rell Hinnant, Tom Kincaid and Randy Cauthen voting against. Under the new policy, people who want to buy beer or wine must show valid ID and receive a wristband. They’ll then stay inside of the enclosed beer garden area to drink. Only one alcoholic beverage can be purchased at a time. Alcohol sales will stop an hour before the end of the event. No one under 21 will be allowed inside the alcohol serving area, not even Parks and Recreation staff members. Mills said all staff involved with alcohol service would receive North Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Control training via a course he has already completed. These policies, he said, are similar to those already used in Concord. Mills said many visitors and event sponsors had requested that alcohol be sold at concerts. According to figures provided to council members, the city could earn as much as $2,300 per concert in profits from beer and wine sales. Visitors will still be able to bring coolers with food and nonalcoholic drinks to concerts, Mills said. Cauthen asked whether park staff would begin searching coolers to keep illicit alcohol out. “They could be giving it away to underage people,� Cauthen said. “To me, I see the strong selling point (of the beer garden) is

to cut down the amount that’s actually out where the families are.� Mills said he would explore strategies to stop alcohol from coming into the park. Linwood-based Silver Eagle, LLC has offered to be the city’s alcohol supplier this year in exchange for promotional consideration, Mills said.

In other action In other business before the Kannapolis City Council: • Council members voted unanimously to adopt the revised Center City Master Plan. The document provides guidance on land use, economic development and transportation policies, and has been under discussion by lawmakers and the public for months. Among the recommendations that Planning Director Ben Warren said could be implemented quickly are reduction of the speed limit on Loop Road/Dale Earnhardt Boulevard and changes in zoning requested by property owners downtown. The plan also calls for creation of a commission to help put those recommendations into effect. • A public hearing on the proposed voluntary annexation of about 96 acres of property on N.C. 73 was continued until the May 9 meeting, by unanimous vote. The hearing was officially

Still, Misenheimer said he fears that alcohol sales could have a detrimental impact on the city’s popular summer events. “I’m afraid we’re opening a can of worms we don’t want to open up,� Misenheimer said. Contact Hugh Fisher via the editor’s desk at 704-797-4244.

opened last month, then continued to allow time to complete paperwork pertaining to permits on the site. Planning Director Ben Warren said that process was not yet finished. The land would be the site of a proposed Catholic high school to be built and operated by the Diocese of Charlotte. • Council members unanimously approved an agreement with Sunoco Recycling for the material the city will collect when a new curbside recycling program rolls out on July 1. Under the agreement, negotiated in conjunction with the City of Concord, Sunoco will pay up to $20 per ton of recycled goods, less the cost of removing any nonrecyclable items, such as trash, that are mixed into the bins. Public Works Director Wilmer Melton said the previous contract only paid a flat rate of $10 per ton. The higher amount will be paid based on market value of recyclable materials, such as aluminum, that may go up or down over time.

Man hospitalized after trying CODE to break up fight at Cookout FROM 3a

SALISBURY — A Lexington man was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center following a fight at Cookout Friday night, and has since been released. Police said Willie Clarence Peck, 23, was trying to break up a fight inside Cookout, and was hit in the head with a chair.

Watercraft crash kills NC deputy, toddler son WINDSOR (AP) — A Bertie County sheriff’s deputy who spent long days at work following the savage April storms was killed along with his toddler son in a personal watercraft accident on the Cashie River, county officials said Monday. Kenneth Cobb, 30, and his son, David, who would have been 3 years old next month, were found dead in their life jackets in the water about 10:30 p.m. Sunday in an isolated section of the river, Chief Deputy Greg Atkins said. “It happened sometime late in the afternoon,� Atkins said. “There was a time lapse. The wife had been unconscious, but she eventually was able make the call for help.� Katrina Cobb was discovered by rescue workers aboard the watercraft after she placed a call from her cell phone reporting the emergency. She was taken to Pitt County Memorial Hospital with a severe head injury, Atkins said. There were no witnesses to the accident, but officials surmise the craft hit an obstacle in the water, ejecting the father and son — and possibly the mother, as well. The family from Windsor was spending time together on the water Sunday, eight days after an outbreak of tornadoes and violent weather left 12 dead in Bertie County, County Manager Zee Lamb said. “He’d been working every single day since the tornado, 15 to 20 hours a day,� Lamb said. “He finally got some time off and went jet-skiing on the Cashie River.� Katrina Cobb’s condition was listed as critical early Monday.

time and the inspector needs to return? The client bought the permits for $60 but now with two trips the cost is $130 to perform inspections. The client still pays $60 and the citizens of Rowan County pay $70. The new fee schedule I have proposed raises the minimum permit fee to $40. That alone will take some of the burden off the backs of the citizens of this county. Just to let you know, we did more than 14,000 inspections last year. I have prepared a compre-

hensive fee schedule which when implemented will help to make this department self sufficient and not dependent on tax dollars — thereby ultimately lowering your taxes. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you as the director of building code enforcement. I think we can work together for the betterment of all the citizens and tax payers. • • • Dana Hart is director of building code enforcement for Rowan County.

No more back-of-the-closet mistakes

• Your uniform. Everyone needs a “uniform.” This is your look; it’s your signature style. Your uniform addresses your body type, shape and silhouette, your image and color palette. • Your shape. A piece of clothing is designed for a certain silhouette. Measurements can change, but a person’s essential frame and body type remain the same. This is your silhouette. Once you know what’s right for your silhouette, you’ll stop wasting mon-

ey on clothes that only look great on the hanger. • Your image. Your clothing personality is that “look” to which you are drawn most often. It’s your style. Romantic, sporty, dramatic or classic? If you’re stumped, your favorite outfits hold the clues. • Your colors. Each of us has natural coloring. It is in our DNA and shows up in our hair, eyes and skin. Certain colors will make you look healthier, radiant and more alive, even without makeup. Your skin dictates what colors to wear. It’s important to figure this out. • Your plan. A written plan for exactly the number of pieces you need for your lifestyle will be invaluable. Without a specific plan, you won’t know when to stop buying. You’ll just keep spending mindlessly. • Closet sweep. Though there are likely many items in your wardrobe you need to purge, you may be surprised to discover how many items you have already to plug into your wardrobe plan. • Take everything out of your closet. Try on everything. Only those items that fit your silhouette, style and color palette — and fill a slot on your written plan — earn a place in your closet. Every-

thing else? Sell or donate it. • Mix and match. If you stick to your style, shape and color palette, you’ll be able to mix and match to come up with new outfits without buying more pieces. Look to inexpensive accessories to keep up with trends and fads. When investing in classic pieces — such as slacks, suits and skirts — stick to classic colors and styles and they will last for many years. • Your lifestyle. Generally, suits are the foundation of a wardrobe plan. Yours may be business suits or running suits, depending on where you are in your life. Your wardrobe plan should be a direct reflection of your lifestyle. Now that you have confidence to refine your wardrobe, remember that the best wardrobes develop over time, piece by piece — and they last.

Passion is elusive for this young worker Dear Amy: I am single, in my middle 20s and have a good job. This job pays well and I could potentially have this job for the rest of my career. My colleagues like me and my supervisor has assured me that my job is secure. That being said, I do not feel as though I am fulfilling my passion in this job. I could work here for the next 30 years and be financially ASK well off. AMY I do not, however, know what my passion is or what I would do if I left this job. In this economy, it is easy to justify staying in a job a person is not especially happy with. I know that jobs are difficult to get now and a person should be thankful to have one at all. What are your thoughts, Amy? How does a person find a passion? Is it a good idea to leave a secure job to seek the unknown, with the hopes of finding a passion? — Wondering Dear Wondering: Passion can be elusive. The more energetically you chase it, the faster it skitters away. But chasing passion will lead you in unexpected directions. The search will lead to people, experiences, discovery and insight. You shouldn’t leave your job right now. Nor should you consider your job to be a pair of golden handcuffs, shackling you to an uninspiring career for the next three decades. Take a look around your

workplace. Are there functions outside of your area you would like to try? Does your workplace offer seminars, training opportunities, fellowships or opportunities to learn about and perhaps work in other divisions? In your time outside of work, you should read, travel, volunteer, listen to music, go to art openings and theater performances. Take up fencing or knitting. Develop some interests and expertise outside of your work life and your passion may find you. Dear Amy: My husband’s parents live in a different state and we see them infrequently, which my husband and I feel is enough. He is not close to them and we do not look forward to our visits. My mother-in-law is manipulative and seems to view her time with us as an opportunity to educate us on how to live our lives. My father-in-law just checks out. In the past when my husband confronted her about this, my mother-in-law ended up in tears. As a result, for the past few years we have just been quietly biding our time during our visits and have basically stopped questioning their “advice” while in their presence. Given the infrequent visits, this approach has been tolerable. However, now my in-laws have informed us they are planning to move to our area once they sell their house. This was a bombshell. We were the last people they told. We feel violated and angry. We are horrified at the idea of them inserting themselves into our lives this way. Do we have the right to ask them not to move here? If not, how do we convey our

need for space and limited contact with them? We understand that they may be hurt, but for our sake, we must set some boundaries. — Upset Dear Upset: You do not have the right to tell your inlaws where to live. You must, however, be honest with them about how this affects you. I agree with you that it is vital that you do your best to establish boundaries with them. Nodding in agreement while you wait for your encounters with them to end will no longer work. Your husband should take the lead here and steel himself for tears and manipulation. He should be calm, kind, resolute and realize that his parents are adults and are responsible for their own choices. Dear Amy: Is it a compliment (or is it politically incorrect) to inform someone that he/she looks good for his/her age? Personally, if I were on the receiving end of that comment, I would be highly complimented. The “for your age” bit wouldn’t bother me in the least. — Wondering Dear Wondering: It would bother me.

Nintendo says successor to Wii coming in 2012 NEW YORK (AP) — The successor to Nintendo’s hit Wii console will arrive next year. In disclosing its plans Monday, Nintendo Co. didn’t say what the new system will do. The Japanese company plans to show a playable model of the new console at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, which runs June 7-9 in Los Angeles. Nintendo has dominated sales of video game consoles and sold 86 million Wiis since launching it in 2006. The Wii caused a splash with its innovative motion-sensing controller. Sports-style games such as baseball and boxing let players move their arms to simulate the pitching of a ball or the throwing of a punch. Nintendo also makes a step-board accessory, the Wii Fit, that allows players to try dance steps or yoga. The Wii setup has been copied and elaborated on by

the other major console makers since then. But the Wii is showing its age. Even when it launched, it was behind the other consoles of the era, Sony Corp.’s PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox 360, in not offering a high-definition image. The modest hardware of the Wii has also meant that while Sony and Microsoft have been able to update their consoles with new capabilities, the Wii has seen only relatively minor updates, such as addition of the optional Wii Fit and the ability to play Netflix movies. Microsoft launched its Kinect game-control system last fall. Using a 3-D camera, depth sensors and voicerecognition software, it recognizes your face, voice and gestures as you move around and talk, without requiring you to hold a controller or wear a headset. Sony, meanwhile, began selling a Move

controller that is essentially a higher-tech version of the Wii remote. Nintendo announced plans for the Wii successor as part of its financial results Monday. Nintendo said its annual earnings dropped for the second straight year as sales declined. It’s expecting sales to increase again in the fiscal year that just started, thanks to its new handheld 3DS device, which launched last month.

Wouldn’t it be fabulous if the shopping gods smiled on us and dumped in our laps all the money we ever spent on clothes we didn’t wear? How much would you have?

Thieves targets homes hit by tornado BENEFITS Zee Lamb, Bertie County manager, said sheriff’s deputies were continuing to maintain 24hour patrols in the hardest-hit areas to deter crime. “During the first few days, we had some seedy people hanging around, and we think they were trying to steal, but we told them to move on,” he added. The police presence has started to wind down in some areas, as staffing assignments return to more usual levels. “We are certainly patrolling in those areas where there is damage,” Sughrue Raul R.

Lawmakers need urgently to cope with an earlier Perdue veto and craft a combination of premium increases, benefit cuts and taxpayer funding for the state health insurance plan for 663,000 state employees, teachers, retirees and their dependents, Apodaca said. Perdue vetoed a proposal that would have required all active workers to pay a monthly premium for their own insurance for the first time as part of the plan to help close a $515 million projected shortfall through mid-2013. The state health plan fix is “the first priority. Then we can look at other vetoes,” Apodaca said. The House this week is focused on adopting its spending plan for the budget year beginning in July, leaving little time for anything else, said Jordan Shaw, spokesman for House Speaker Thom Tillis, R-Mecklenburg. “We’re at capacity this week,” Shaw said. “It’s unlikely that the House will originate a bill this week, but

compensation was created as a way to lessen the pain for the long-term unemployed. The U.S. Labor Department notified North Carolina officials April 1 that the extended benefits program had to stop paying out after April 16 because the state’s recent three-month average unemployment rate had improved from 2010 and 2009. South Carolina and 13 other states have passed legislation to revise their formulas and keep the extended benefits flowing, the state’s Employment Security Commission said. News organizations reported on the pending cutoff on April 5 as the state employment agency began sending letters warning people they could be cut off within days. Democrats filed legislation the same day to fix the problem by changing the formula. The state employment agency sent a letter to GOP legislative leaders on April 8 informing them of the pending benefits cutoff. That delay in officially notifying Republican legislative leaders was a political ploy, Apodaca said. GOP leaders announced April 13 they would bind extending the benefits to the spending limits they wanted. They delayed final legislative action until hours before the federal funds paying for the extended benefits were due to end April 16. Perdue vetoed the bill late the same day.

RALEIGH (AP) — Police are urging owners of homes and businesses that suffered damage in the April 16 storms to remove or secure all valuables to prevent thieves from raiding unattended homes and businesses. Police in Fayetteville are still tallying numbers but say a “handful” of homes have been looted so far — three on one storm-ravaged street. “We want to get these guys,” says Gavin McRoberts, public information officer for the police department. “Now is the best time to be a good neighbor, a nosy neighbor. If you see something out of whack, please call 911.” Tools, electronics, jewelry and other items have been reported stolen from several homes. Copper wiring and other metal are disappearing from businesses across the eastern half of the state, where April 16 storms were concentrated. Two men were arrested in Fayetteville Friday for violating the 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, which expired Monday morning, officials said. In Raleigh, a witness reported a man in a truck was spotted picking up downed wires from streets and sidewalks. A power generator, weedeater and blower also were taken from a residential garage, Raleigh Police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.

if the Senate originates a bill we’ll look at it this week.” About 37,000 jobless workers are caught in the partisan rift in Raleigh over the seemingly straightforward move to change a formula for calculating unemployment benefits, allowing the federally funded program to continue for people out of work for up to 99 weeks. Republican lawmakers tied the benefits extension to a bid to force Perdue to accept double-digit budget cuts before negotiations begin in earnest. The GOP added language to the benefits extension committing Perdue to a spending cut at least 13 percent below what she proposed in February. Perdue called the linkage “extortion.” GOP leaders said they combined the two issues to ensure that schools, state agencies and contractors know how much state spending they could count on if budget negotiations drag beyond the start of the new budget year in July. “The sooner the General Assembly can pass a clean bill to restore benefits, the better. The governor will sign it. She knows 37,000 people are waiting for it,” Perdue spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson said. North Carolina is one of about three dozen states in which an extended benefits program of up to 20 weeks of

Paramedic to donate kidney to ER doctor friend

Good Beginnings celebrates program’s high school Graduates


SALISBURY — In fewer than 20 days, Charles Cardwell of Salisbury will undergo surgery and endure weeks of recuperation. On the same day, Jon Hobbs will also undergo surgery and weeks of recuperation. Charles, who works as a paramedic in Cabarrus County, is donating his kidney to the Concord ER doctor. “I was at work one day and took a patient in the emergency room and heard that he was sick and was going to need a kidney transplant,” Charles said. Seven years ago, Jon was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease, a genetic disorder where cysts form on the kidneys, causing them to become enlarged. Last year Jon noticed he increasingly became tired, which he attributed to work. His disease was progressing and he was experiencing kidney failure. He made steps to put his name on the national organ donor list, a wait that could take three or more years. Under normal circumstances, Jon would have had to wait years before receiving a kidney from a deceased donor. Jon’s wife, DeAnne, a nurse, created a Facebook page, “Share Your Spare — Finding a Kidney for Jon Hobbs.” Charles took a look and signed up. Following nine weeks of tests to determine if Charles’ kidney was compatible with Jon, doctors confirmed three weeks ago the two were indeed a match. The match needed to be under 40 years old and with a similar body type and blood type. DeAnne said a person with a similar body type will have a kidney that is comparable in size to her husband’s kidney. Charles talked to his wife, Crystal, about his plan to donate his kidney. “She was cool with it. She’s always been very supportive,” Charles said. Crystal went with Charles to all of his appointments and will be there to care for him while he recuperates.

Living Donation Living donation is when a living person donates an organ, or part of an organ, for transplantation to another person. Living donation can be from a family member, friend or stranger, which is called nondirected donation. The most common organ given by a living donor is the kidney, but parts of other organs that include the liver and lung are being transplanted from living donors. There are more than 100,000 candidates on the U.S. organ transplant waiting list, of those more than 86,000 are waiting for a kidney transplant. In 2010, there were 129 living kidney donations made in North Carolina whereas 20 years ago there were 59, according to the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network.

Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), is passed down through families and is where cysts form on the kidneys causing them to become enlarged. • The disorder can lead to chronic high blood pressure. • Surgical removal of one or both kidneys may be required. • Treatment of end-stage kidney disease may include kidney dialysis or kidney transplantation. • There is no treatment to prevent cysts from becoming enlarged or from forming.

Atlanta, here we come “It makes you honored to be a part of his life,” Crystal said. The youngest Cardwells — Alexander, 11, and Ethan, 5, — both just think their dad is cool. Until now, Charles never knew anyone who needed a kidney but always thought if someone he knew ever did, he would consider donating. “I don’t want people to think I’m some superman. I’m a friend. I’m giving a gift,” Charles said. He said it’s not a sacrifice; he’s a friend helping another friend. “I’m giving him an opportunity to watch his kids grow up,” Charles said. Jon and DeAnne have three children, Madison, 11, and twins Julia and Will, 5.

A Gift Jon said it was a very humbling experience to have Charles offer his kidney. “It’s very refreshing to do this without compulsion,” he said. Not only was Jon amazed at Charles’ offer, but so were lots of others who came forward to determine if they were a match, many of them strangers. “It’s a very surreal, touching moment,” Jon said. “That’s a lot to ask of anybody,” DeAnne said. The Hobbses had several candidates who were potential matches

Autumn Ulrich earns Bronze Award Autumn Ulrich with Girl Scout Troop 511, which is sponsored by St. John’s Lutheran Church, recently coordinated an event with Lutheran Home at Trinity Oaks as completion of her Bronze Award process. On Saturday, April 2, residents of Trinity Oaks were treated to Fun with Felt in the facility’s Craft Room.

and began the testing process. They could at any time back out, she said. “If they wanted to change their minds, nobody else would know. There was no pressure,” DeAnne said. The Hobbses were honored that so many people were considering it. Transplantation will not be a final step for Jon. He will have to take anti-rejection medications for the rest of his life. Jon’s only major complication post-surgery will be returning to work in the ER, where people come in with all types of germs and infections. April is National Donate Life Month, and Jon hopes in some way he can bring awareness to people about living organ donation. So much is heard about being an organ donor in death, “a lot of people are not aware they can donate a kidney and still survive,” Jon said. Living donation is possible for kidneys, parts of the liver, lung and skin. People who’ve had gastric bypass and have excess skin are good candidates who can donate their skin to a burn center, Jon said. The Hobbses and Cardwells have become a big family. “We all feel very comfortable with each other,” Jon said. If there was ever anything the Cardwells needed, Jon said his family is there to give it.

When DeAnne heard Charles say his family was postponing the family spring break trip, the wheels started turning. She knew the Cardwells were huge baseball fans — especially Atlanta Braves fans. Crystal and Charles coach their son’s baseball teams. DeAnne made a few phone calls, sent some emails and came up with an all-expenses paid road trip for the four Cardwells to Atlanta. One of the first calls was to her uncle, Marvin Hudson, an umpire for the Braves, who is part of an organization called Umps Care. The Cardwells are getting VIP treatment at Friday’s game. The family will stop on the way to the game at Mayfield Dairy Farm for a tour and some sweet treats in Braselton, GA. Their trip will include a helicopter ride over downtown Atlanta, a day at Zoo Atlanta, World of CocaCola and the Georgia Aquarium. “There is no way this will ever compare to what they are doing. You can’t repay that,” DeAnne said. The two families and other friends met at Concord Family Restaurant Friday to hear DeAnne present the news over breakfast. The Cardwells were speechless as the trip itinerary unfolded. “I’m overwhelmed. I never had a clue,” Charles said. Contact reporter Shavonne Potts at 704-797-4253.

The Stanback Room at the Rowan Public Library was filled with lively conversation and punctuated with the happy cries of many young children as the Good Beginnings for Teen Parents program recognized their high school graduates for 2011 on Wednesday. Good Beginnings is funded through Smart Start Rowan and administered through a contract with the Adolescent and Family Enrichment Council (AFEC). AFEC staff mentors meet with teen parents in public school settings and in their homes. A total of 41 teen parents representing all of the high schools in the Rowan Salisbury Schools System, together with their little ones and many proud family members and supportive friends, gathered to celebrate an achievement which will enable them to provide for their young families in the years ahead. Three young students — JaNece Grier, Yareli Luna and Jessie Gibson — were selected to speak. They shared their personal stories as moving testimonies to the effectiveness and importance of the GBTP program. The dedication and commitment of the two mentors, Desmonda Garnett and Enid Rodriguez, were highly praised. Each of these new mothers explained the many barriers to completing their education which they had overcome with the support of GBTP. Even more notable, these young women have maintained high academic grades and won scholarships which will assist them in continuing their education in post high school settings! There were 41 “success stories” in the room on this day! These young parents are not looking back at past choices, but looking forward instead. They have been encouraged and empowered to walk forward, knowing that through effort and work they can succeed in attaining their goals and providing for their families! They will become active members of our workforce and contributing citizens in our community. Some already are, as we heard from one young mom who is locally employed full-time as a certified nursing assistant. Good Beginnings for Teen Parents is a wonderful example of the expression, “it takes a village.” In this case, the Good Beginnings program involves many local organizations and individuals: AFEC, Smart Start Rowan, RowanSalisbury Schools, the United Way and all the many volunteer leaders on their boards who help sustain the vision and the program. I hope that each board member might feel the same satisfaction that I experienced sitting and applauding these graduates at lunch. Do not think of Good Beginnings for Teen Parents as just another program. It is so much more. On this particular day, it represented 41 young adult lives empowered and renewed with encouragement, hopes and joys restored! I am sincerely blessed to be a part of the village. • • • The Rev.

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — The latest NATO airstrike on Moammar Gadhafi’s compound that reduced parts of it to a smoldering ruin of broken concrete slabs and twisted wires stepped up pressure on the increasingly embattled Libyan leader who is struggling to hold onto the western half of the country. A Libyan government spokesman denounced Monday’s bombing as a failed assassination attempt, saying the 69-year-old leader was healthy, “in high spirits” and carrying on business as usual. A separate airstrike elsewhere in Tripoli targeted Libyan TV and temporarily knocked it off the air, a government spokesman said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not

Levee threatens to burst, flooding feared

ground threatened to break the levee protecting their town. Smaller evacuations also took place from Kentucky to Arkansas as rivers and lakes continued to rise, and it was only expected to get worse. Forecasters called for severe storms that will drop more heavy rain across the lower Ohio and Mississippi River valleys, compounding the misery from a storm system that pounded the region last week and over the weekend, spawning tornadoes and washing away roads. Some places have seen 10 to 15 inches already, and the worst flooding may not come until Wednesday. Two storms with heavy rain and possible tornadoes are moving into the region, with northeast Texas, eastern Oklahoma and Arkansas expected to feel the brunt, said Greg Carbin, a meteorologist with the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla. Areas in Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri and Tennessee are expected to get several more inches of rain, and Carbin predicted “substantial” flooding as water lands on ground too wet to absorb it or in rivers and lakes already over flood stage. He said it’s unusual to see two distinct storm systems hit the same spots back to back, but that’s what will happen. “I think we’ll see substantial flooding. It will affect those areas already experiencing heavy rain,” he said.

April 4th-29th

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve is increasingly confident in the economy and about to end a $600 billion program to support it. Now for the next step — figuring out how to keep inflation from taking off. Since late last year, the Fed has bought government bonds to keep interest rates low. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and his colleagues are expected to signal this week that they will allow the program to expire as scheduled in June. The end of the bond-buying program would mean that, aside from tax cuts, almost all the extraordinary measures the government took to prop up the economy are over. Congress is fighting over how deeply to cut federal spending, not whether to spend more for stimulus. Since the Fed announced the plan last August, worries that the economy would fall back into recession have all but disappeared.


KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) — During the long Afghan winter, Taliban insurgents were apparently busy underground. The militants say they spent more than five months building a 1,050-foot tunnel to the main prison in southern Afghanistan, bypassing government checkpoints, watch towers and concrete barriers topped with razor wire. The diggers finally poked through Sunday and spent 41⁄2 hours ferrying away more than 480 inmates without a shot being fired, according to the Taliban and Afghan officials. Most of the prisoners were Taliban militants. Accounts of the extraordinary prison break, carried out in the dead of night, suggest collusion with prison guards, officials or both. Following a recent wave of assassinations here, the breakout underscores the weakness of the Afghan government in the south despite an influx of international troops, funding and advisers. It also highlights the spirit and resourcefulness of the Taliban despite months of battlefield setbacks.

on civilians. A spokesman for the alliance said it is increasingly targeting facilities linked to Gadhafi’s regime.


BEIRUT (AP) — Thousands of soldiers backed by tanks and snipers moved in before dawn to the city where Syria’s anti-government uprising began, causing panic in the streets when they opened fire indiscriminately on civilians and went house-to-house rounding up suspected protesters. At least 11 people were killed and 14 others lay in the streets — either dead or gravely wounded, witnesses said. The military raids on the southern city of Daraa and at least two other areas suggested Syria is trying to impose military control on the centers of protests against President Bashar Assad, whose family has ruled Syria for four decades. Residents and human rights activists said the regime wants to terrify opponents and intimidate them from staging any more demonstrations. The offensive was meticulously planned: Electricity, water and mobile phone services were cut. Security agents armed with guns and knives conducted house-to-house sweeps, neighborhoods were sectioned off and checkpoints were erected before the sun rose. The massive assault on Daraa appeared to be part of new strategy of crippling, preemptive strikes against any opposition to Assad, rather than reacting to demonstrations. The attacks brought more international condemnation and threats of targeted sanctions by Washington.

New scan on teen drivers Lessons in the real world C ould saving the lives of more teen drivers be as simple as one, two, three? Count on it, safety experts say. While we typically think of speeding, reckless behavior or drinking and driving as major factors in teen accidents, researchers say that’s often not the case. After studying a representative sample of 800 crashes involving young drivers, they found that about two-thirds resulted from three general causes: • Scanning mistakes: These occur when teens fail to check the road ahead and monitor mirrors for potential risks around their vehicles. It includes misjudging the speed of an oncoming car while turning left. • Misjudging road conditions: A young driver fails to slow for a curve or slippery pavement and loses control. • Driver distraction: Although cell phones and texting are frequently cited in this category, the most frequent distractions come from passengers. Graduated licensing programs have reduced the teen fatality rate, which has dropped by about 30 percent nationwide in recent years. The new research, drawn from a study by the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and State Farm Insurance, offers a signpost for building on those reductions. The key, according to Dr. Dennis Durbin, co-author of the report published in the journal Accident and Analysis and Prevention and reported in the New York Times, is to intentionally teach young drivers habits that address those three critical areas. Over time, mature drivers learn to assimilate what’s happening down the road, on sidewalks and even in the rearview mirror. They adjust to road conditions and focus on driving, even amid distractions. Novice drivers lack that awareness. “Teenagers keep a tunnel vision right off the hood of the car,” Durbin said. “They think all they need to do is look straight ahead.” Parents and driving instructors can help expand that vision by practicing “narrative driving,” in which the adult driver gives a running account of what he or she is doing and thinking behind the wheel — a sort of highway play-by-play. While a veteran driver may appear to be casually steering and looking ahead, in reality he or she is scanning the road, checking mirrors, noting potential hazards (such as tailgaters or lane weavers) and making driving adjustments based on that information. While there’s no substitute for behindthe-wheel experience, the study suggests it need not take years for teens to improve their driving habits in these three crucial areas. Accelerating that learning curve can prevent crashes and save lives.

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be) Learning is a treasury whose keys are queries. — Arabian proverb

Moderately confused

f someone ties a love note to a nuclear bomb, do you take ’em both?” That was State Senate Minority Leader Martin Nesbitt, a Democrat, complaining about the legislature’s Republican majority tying a controversial budget cut provision to a popular proposed extension of unemployment benefits. Of course, as Senator Nesbitt knows, this kind of posturing goes D.G. on all the time in MARTIN the General Assembly and in the Congress. The best way to get an unpopular piece of legislation passed and signed by the president or a governor is to tie it tightly to a very popular bill. When I first started my former job representing the university system in the legislative halls, I had a lot to learn. (And to be fair, I still had a lot to learn even after I had spent years on the job.) One of the hardest things for me to understand is the marketplace character of the legislature. What do I mean? Simply this: It’s where a lot of trading goes on. When a legislator or a lobbyist wants to get something done, he or she quickly finds out it will not automatically happen just because it is a good idea. It usually takes some trading. Here is an example. When the legislature gives inflationary increases to the pensions of state workers, it regularly makes similar adjustments for the faculty members who participate in a nationwide academic retirement plan. The university system views this adjustment as something that should be automatic. But, towards the end of one session, when we approached the chair of the committee responsible for the retirement provisions of the budget, he let us know in no uncertain terms that the adjustment would not be automatic. “We’ll see about that,” he said as he quickly shifted his eyes away from us to meet those of another supplicant. I panicked, but my mentor, the late Jay Robinson, was calm. “Don’t worry about it too much,” he said. “Old Joe just needs something to trade. He will hold it back so that if he needs something from a university partisan, he can trade his approval of the pension provision to get what he wants.” It didn’t seem right. “But,” explained Robinson, “that is the kind of trade every legislator wants — trading something that is probably going to happen anyway, in exchange for something he really wants but would not have happened if he hadn’t held something back he could give up.” Does it seem complicated and unfair? It did to me, too. But once I learned how the system worked, I got a lot more done than when I was just arguing the merits of the case. However, there is a risk to this tactic. When the public becomes convinced that some person or some group is, in Sen. Nesbitt’s words, “tying an atom bomb” to something the government ought to be doing without condition, that person or group can be in trouble. They can get tagged with putting politics ahead of the public interest. I learned another lesson about legislative trading in 2007 when I was interim director of the Clean Water Management Trust Fund. Although the fund was popular with most legislators, the House of Representatives reduced the fund’s appropriation in its preliminary budget. When I asked why, the House budget leaders told me privately, “The fund will get its appropriation in the end, but Sen. Basnight really loves that program, and we need something to trade when we negotiate a final budget with him.” If it were not so important, watching our legislators could be fun. Like watching all the insider signals at a baseball game — or watching sausage being made. • • • D.G.

Students need balance of criticism, support BY WILL REEDY For the Salisbury Post

n my time teaching upperclassmen in high school, I have noticed that students are struggling with their ability to handle constructive criticism. I feel as though I am expected to be overly positive so I do not offend and dishearten students. As a teacher, I feel that educators are obligated to prepare their pupils for the next chapter of their lives. My father is a college professor at the University of Central Florida, and we often speak of common frustrations and other issues we encounter in education. We both recognize that our students are not prepared for the real world. College atmospheres are more competitive than ever, and the business world is harsh and at times apathetic. It is not about how much effort or time one puts into a project but the end result. If you disagree, then catch the next airing of “The Celebrity Apprentice” (an extreme example, I admit). Parents and teachers must inform students so they can prepare for the expectations that will be placed on them. Students today are quite competitive. This is in large part due to how they are assessed academically. Students today have access to immediate results — percentages, letter grades and grade point averages. Many of us in education have even been known to say, “Oh, he’s a B student” or “She has a 2.5 G.P.A.” as a way of identifying students. These numbers and symbols have become who they are. B students feel they are only capable of a B life (A self-fulfilling prophecy). And, if a B life does not mesh with their parents’ expectations, or their reputation as a C student is surpassed by their peers, then a student can become defensive, even embarrassed. It can lead to feelings of inadequacy. Because of this phenomenon, we are handicapped as educators. Students I have taught take each grade they receive that does not meet my standard or theirs as a personal slight. They become defensive, interpreting the criticism of their work as a criticism of who they are. That I, the teacher, am saying they are bad because they made mistakes. At this point, the teacher and parents must do their jobs. We must help students understand what the grade is really saying; their performance was inadequate, not them. Also, we must let them know that we value them and their efforts; they are capable of doing


better and, with our help, meeting the required standards. Schoolwork for all students must be regarded as an experiment, one from which they hope to gain knowledge. They must not regard it as an absolute assessment of who they are. Students need to regard constructive criticism as an opportunity to gain knowledge and recognize the teacher is not trying to damage their self-esteem or stigmatize them. High school students often fail to realize the real world is quickly approaching. That mistakes in the classroom are now paid for through trivial consequences — a loss of privileges and extra chores — but they will soon be paid for financially. Why not provide as much honest, constructive criticism as possible right now? Criticism that provides insight into what will be expected of them as young adults and young professionals. It is our duty as teachers and parents to inform high school students that very soon they will be held accountable for the work they produce and how they manage themselves personally and professionally. And, hopefully they can meet that chapter of their life with the ability to be reflective and honest with themselves about the quality of their work. Educators must be candid with their students. We cannot excuse poor production from high school students, especially upperclassmen, because we do not wish to hurt their feelings; it would be negligent. We cannot speak in euphemisms to avoid being called onto the mat for offending an overly sensitive student. A teacher’s job is to teach. What are we teaching children by passing the buck, by not swiftly providing constructive criticism in regard to what is acceptable production and what is not? Typically, it is out of fear of reprisal from parents or administration or because we have a weak conscience. This is what truly harms the student. The necessity to speak honestly with students about their work is not a license to be offensive. After all, they are not adults. The teacher’s job does not stop once the direct, constructive criticism has been made; we must also applaud exemplary production and recognize (not grade) strong effort. Teachers and parents must reinforce the good work that these students produce. We must strive to support them and build confidence for the next stage of their lives. ••• Will Reedy is a teacher at East Rowan High School.

SNIP clinic offers assistance on Rowan spay-neuter issues This time of year plays havoc with animal lovers and rescue groups whose goal is to save as many animals as possible from being euthanized. Of course, irresponsible pet owners cause many of these deaths by not practicing spay/neuter on their own pets. Animal lovers and rescue groups in Rowan are overwhelmed with requests to rescue a litter of puppies or kittens because their owners failed to prevent their pet’s pregnancy. However, some vets will not sterilize a feral cat without a costly test for feline leukemia. If the tests are positive, the cat is euthanized and another fee is added to the bill. Yet there is much evidence a cat with a positive test can live for years and not contaminate other cats. The test isn’t mandated by N.C. law because other counties allow the owner or rescuer to return home with the cat by signing a waiver. Fortunately, a veterinarian with the SNIP Regional Spay/Neuter Clinic in Mooresville, Dr. Elizabeth Broome, has agreed to help Rowan with this problem. Dr. Broome referred me to one of the top veterinarians in the country, Dr. Julie Levy at the University of Florida. Dr. Levy’s research found that feline leukemia tests aren’t necessary for feral cats. They have about the same small incidence of these diseases as domestic cats, so she doesn’t see it as a concern. Feline leukemia is primarily

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Republican Gov. Haley Barbour bowed out of presidential contention Monday with a surprise announcement just as the 2012 campaign was getting under way in earnest, 18 months before Election Day. The Mississippi governor said he lacked the necessary “absolute fire in the belly” to run. Barbour’s declaration, unexpected because he had been laying the groundwork for a campaign for months, thins a Republican cluster of no less than a dozen potential candidates to take on Democratic President Barack Obama. With the GOP campaign’s first debate scheduled for next week, the muddy Republican field will become clearer very soon as more potential contenders announce whether they’ll run or sit out. Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who lost in 2008 and is a favorite of libertarians as well as tea partyers, is planning to take a step toward a second bid today. The next facing a self-imposed deadline of this weekend, is Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, a Barbour friend and a fiscal conservative who has shined a spotlight on rising budget deficits and national debt. As the GOP race comes into sharper focus, Obama is working to both prevent an erosion of his support while under Republican attack and to raise enough money to overwhelm his eventual foe. He’s been packing his schedule with fundraisers and visits to battleground states as he gears up for what he says will be a tough campaign. This week alone, he will raise money in New York and return to his hometown of Chicago — also the site of his campaign headquarters — to tape an episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” He then will head to Florida, a pivotal swing state, to deliver a commencement address at Miami Dade College and attend the launch of Endeavour, NASA’s next-to-last space shuttle flight. Potentially vulnerable, Obama has middling poll ratings and is seeking a second term in a country reeling over high unemployment, rising gas prices and the remnants of recession. Yet, the GOP faces plenty of its own troubles. Its field lacks a front-runner. Most of the candidates are largely unknown to Republicans. The most recent Associated Press-GfK poll indicated that only half of all Republicans were satisfied by their choices and a third were dissatisfied. Unlike four years ago, GOP presidential hopefuls have been hesitant to rush into the race.

further behind, but they provided only $73 billion. The study looked at figures from 2008 and 2009, when the economy and the stock market were at their worst. Susan Urahn, managing director for the Pew Center on the States, said the problems go beyond a temporary drop in the value of state investments. Facing tight budgets, states are choosing to skip their annual contributions to pension funds, like families skipping a credit card payment, she said, and that makes the ultimate debt even bigger. When the pension shortfall is combined with the cost of retiree health care, states face a gap of $1.26 trillion between money on hand and what they’ll eventually owe. That’s about $9,500 for every household in the United States. The study did not include many local government pension plans, which face similar problems. States basically have two options: Come up with the money or reduce what they owe. Coming up the money could mean raising taxes or making deep cuts elsewhere in the budget. “This growing bill increasingly competes for dollars with other important priorities like education, human services and infrastructure,” Urahn told reporters.


Dozen contenders ponder GOP run

ment. Markets rise and fall, states put more money or less into pensions, and benefits can be adjusted up or down. He called the funding percentages “a snapshot of what amounts to a decades-long motion picture. There’s nothing magical about any particular funding level.” States promise their employees monthly pension checks after they retire and pay for them by joining with their employees to contribute money that is then invested. But states risk getting into financial trouble when they fail to put aside money as they go while promising employees bigger pension checks. There’s little danger of an immediate crisis, according to the Pew study, such as a state being unable to send out pension checks. Already, though, Illinois retirement systems have had to sell assets to come up with the money they needed because state government wasn’t meeting its obligations. The longer states delay, the bigger the actions needed to fix the problem. The Pew study found that state retirement systems in fiscal 2009 had assets to cover 78 percent of long-term costs, down from 84 percent the previous year. States were supposed to contribute $115 billion to keep from falling


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Bad decisions and a sour economy combined to leave 31 states below the safety line set for investing money to meet future pension costs, according to a study released Monday. The double-whammy also has increased the chance that officials may eventually have to fix the problem by cutting benefits or raising taxes. Many experts recommend states save at least 80 percent of the money they’ll eventually need to pay the pensions promised to government employees. Twenty-two states failed to previously meet that threshold and nine more fell short in fiscal 2009, according to the Pew Center on the States. Illinois had the largest shortfall, with only 51 percent. New York was in the best shape at 101 percent. “Far too many states are not responsibly managing the bill for their employees’ retirement,” said the report, “The Widening Gap: The Great Recession’s Impact on State Pension and Retiree Health Care Costs.” But Keith Brainard, research director for the National Association of State Retirement Administrators, said it can be misleading to look at a percentage at any one mo-

DETROIT (AP) — The Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf got top safety ratings in some of the first-ever tests of electric cars by an insurer-funded research group. Both cars earned top scores for front, side and rear-impact crashes and for rollover crash protection, according to results released Tuesday by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. While both the Leaf and Volt are classified as small cars, the institute said their heavy battery packs put their weight closer to large sedans. The Volt, for example, weighs 3,760 pounds, which is close to the weight of the Chevrolet Impala. The Leaf weighs 3,370 pounds, which is similar to a Nissan Altima midsize car. That extra mass helps protect their occupants, since heavier cars are less likely to be pushed around in a crash. The Leaf runs solely on battery power and has a range of around 100 miles. The Volt can go around 40 miles on an electric charge before a small gas engine kicks in. The institute said it was the first time it has tested road-worthy plug-in cars. Two golf cart-like electric vehicles, the Gem e2 and Wheego Whip, were tested for research purposes but performed poorly in sideimpact tests, the group said. But those cars run at very low speeds and aren’t required to meet federal safety standards. The federal government hasn’t yet released crashtest results for the Volt and Leaf.

Tressel in trouble in Columbus BY RUSTY MILLER Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio — In a sharply worded rebuke of Ohio State’s Jim Tressel, the NCAA on Monday accused the 10-year coach of withholding information and lying to keep Buckeyes players on the field who had accepted improper benefits from the owner of a tattoo parlor. In a “notice of allegations” sent to the school, the NCAA said Monday that the violations relating to the coach are considered “potential major violations.” Ohio State was not cited

for the most serious of institutional breaches since Tressel hid information from his superiors for more than nine months. The university has 90 days to respond to the ruling body of college sports’ request for information before a scheduled date before the NCAA’s committee on infractions on Aug. 12 in Indianapolis. In a 13-page indictment of Tressel’s behavior, the NCAA alleged that Tressel had “permitted football student-athletes to participate in intercollegiate athletics while ineligible.” It also said he “failed to deport himself ...

(with) honesty and integrity” and said he was lying when he filled out a compliance form in September which said he had no knowledge of any NCAA violations by any of his players. Athletic director Gene Smith said he would have “no comments until the case is resolved.” The university issued a statement that the allegations were consistent with what it had already self-reported to the NCAA on March 8. Tressel’s troubles began with an April 2, 2010, email from Columbus lawyer Christopher Cicero. Cicero, a

former Ohio State walk-on player, informed Tressel that a federal agency had raided the house of tattoo-shop owner Eddie Rife and discovered a multitude of autographed Ohio State jerseys, cleats, pants and helmets, Big Ten championship rings and the “gold pants” trinkets given to Buckeyes players for beating archrival Michigan. Tressel responded, “I will get on it ASAP.” Yet he did not notify Smith or Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee, anyone else in the athletic department, the

Cavaliers kick the extra point BY DAVID SHAW

SALISBURY — It’s a good thing style No. Rowan 14 points didn’t Lake Nor. 13 count in Monday’s Cliff Peeler Classic third-place game. North Rowan used six pitchers who yielded 15 hits, including eight for extra bases. Lake Norman commintted eight errors and played defense like it was a way of killing time between at-bats. In the end a four-run rally in the top of the seventh inning gave North an unsightly 14-13 victory. “We don’t play pretty games,” winning coach Aaron Rimer chuckled after the Cavs improved to 16-5. “It’s not allowed at North Rowan. As much as I’d want it to, we don’t allow pretty on the ballfield.” Lake Norman coach Robert little was thoroughly disgusted after the Wildcats (17-6) — pre-tournament contenders to win it all — suffered their third

loss in four games. “I’m very disappointed,” he said. “This was embarrassing how we fielded. If you told me we were going to score 10 runs, I would have said we’d win the game.” Instead, nine of North’s runs were unearned. The game-winning hit was delivered by junior Jake Smith, who lined a two-out, two-run single that sprawling LN center-fielder Mike Knight couldn’t grab. When relief pitcher Dakota Brown retired the Wildcats in the last of the seventh, North had wiped out a 9-2 deficit and won a game it probably shouldn’t have. “We’re gonna get down. We’re gonna make mistakes,” said North’s Matt Mauldin. “It doesn’t matter how far we’re behind. We know we can never give up.” Rimer, the first-year coach, was kicked out of the game for arguing with an umpire while the Cavs were batting in the top of the sixth. His pointed

a pitch through the left-field fence. It was one of the hardest-hit doubles in history and drew gasps from the crowd. “Just a 2-0 fastball down the middle,” Herndon said. “I thought I’d probably hooked it foul.” Proud papa Mike Herndon managed a smile or two talking about that rocket. “(Salisbury coach) Scott Maddox told me he was going to send me a repair bill for his wall,” he said cheerfully. Besides Herndon’s RBI double, Ryan Foster and Watson lashed RBI singles in that destructive first inning. Watson singled home another run in the third, but McMichael pitcher Jeffrey Harris dug in after that, and it became a ballgame. “Davie’s a very strong team, but no matter who you’re playing, you go out and play the game,” McMichael coach Mike Dalton said. “Jeffrey threw one of his best games, and if we’d done what we were supposed to do on a couple of bunts, we might’ve scared them to death.” Justin Cook’s two-run double in the fourth cut Davie’s lead in half, and the lead was still a precarious 4-2 in the top of the sixth when Davie hurler Will Beason (2-0) got the third out with two men on.


Judge orders end to NFL lockout BY DAVE CAMPBELL Associated Press

jon c. lakey/SALISBURY POST

North’s Dakota Brown was the only hurler from either side See NORTH, 3B to toss a scoreless inning on Monday.

MINNEAPOLIS — Seven weeks into the NFL lockout, players have an early triumph over the owners in court. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson ordered an immediate end to the lockout Monday, issuing a sharply worded ruling as she sided with the players in their fight with the owners over how to divide the $9 billion business. The NFL responded by filing a notice of appeal questioning whether Nelson exceeded her jurisdiction, seeking relief from the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis. Nelson granted a request for a preliminary injunction to lift the lockout, saying she was swayed by the players’ argument that the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987 is hurting their careers. The plaintiffs “have made a strong showing that allow-

ing the League to continue their ‘lockout’ is presently inflicting, and will continue to inflict, irreparable harm upon them, particularly when weighed against the lack of any real injury that would be imposed on the NFL by issuing the preliminary injunction,” Nelson wrote. If the injunction is upheld, the NFL must resume business, although under what guidelines is uncertain. It could invoke the 2010 rules for free agency, meaning players would need six seasons of service before becoming unrestricted free agents when their contracts expire; previously, it was four years. The requirement for unrestricted free agents would be four years rather than the three years before 2010. There also was no salary cap in 2010, meaning teams could spend as much — or as little — as they wanted. Also, the NFL would need

SALISBURY — A seventh-place game is an ideal C. Cabarrus 5 place to experiSalisbury 3 ment, so Salisbury coach Scott Maddox sent jayvee pitcher Scott Freidrich to the mound for his varsity debut on Monday morning at Robertson Stadium. Freidrich gave the Hornets a chance against Central Cabarrus’ Vikings, but at the end of a threehour, nine inning struggle, all Salisbury had to show for its efforts were sun-reddened faces and another Cliff Peeler Baseball Classic loss. Salisbury’s 5-3 setback was its fifth straight, and the Hornets (9-9) were the only team in the eight-team tournament field not to taste victory. “We outlasted Salisbury, and that’s about all you can say,” Central coach Jim Knight said. “I’m a history teacher, and that was a war of attrition. At this point, no one has a lot of arms left.” Central (10-12) scored the tiebreaking run in the ninth on a popfly single that would have been a routine play for Salisbury second baseman John Knox under normal circumstances. But Central had the goahead run at third base, the Hornets had the infield drawn in on the grass, and Central sophomore Quinton Covington became the proud owner of a game-deciding hit. “We bring ’em in, they bloop one, and we lose,” Salisbury coach Scott Maddox said. “We’re just in one of those stretches that you run into in baseball. It’s come down to a break in three of our last four games. Whether it’s been a bad hop, a ball that gets lost in the lights or a bloop, it just hasn’t gone our way.” Salisbury lost partly because it left 13 men on base and partly because four Hornet hurlers walked nine Vikings. Defensively, the Hornets were good. Right fielder Philip Tonseth made a sliding catch, and Knox, the second baseman, turned in a spectacular play for the first out in the sixth. “Salisbury’s second baseman made the best play I’ve seen all year,” Knight said. “They battled us all day.” Freshman Garrett Freeze pitched four shutout innings for the Vikings, and no one scored until the fifth. That’s when Freidrich tired. He walked two in that inning, and when the Hornets narrowly missed turning a double play that would’ve ended the frame, he had to face Central’s No. 3 hitter Ryan Yoder. Chase Bowden was warming up, but Maddox stuck with Freidrich for at least two reasons. First, the kid still had a shutout. Second, he’d gotten Yoder out twice, once on a strikeout. Freidrich got ahead of Yoder, but this time the 6-foot-200-pound righthanded hitter laid into one. His drive soared toward the distant wall in right-center where the marker reads 360. Tonseth immediately sprinted to the fence and arrived there ahead of the ball. “I was figuring on a fastball outside, and that’s what I got and I went with it,” Yoder said. “But then I thought for a second that kid in right field had robbed me.” Tonseth jumped at the fence and tumbled to the ground. Umpires waited to see if he’d caught the ball, but his glove was empty. The Vikings had three runs on one swing. “Yoder got on that one pretty good,” Knight said. “There aren’t many places in this park where you can hit a cheap home run.” Heading to the bottom of the sev-

enth, Maddox would’ve settled for any kind of run, cheap or otherwise. Salisbury had gone 16 straight innings without scoring. But the Hornets got a rally going when Ian Swaim was hit by a pitch, Spencer Carmichael singled, and Skyler Mikkelson walked. Swaim scored on a wild pitch, and it was 31. Knight turned to his closer Yoder, who had caught the first six innings on a hot day. “It’s not easy to go from catching to pitching,,” Yoder said. “You have to have the mindset of going from short arm to long arm.” Yoder retired Brian Bauk on a flyball to right for the first out, and Knox was called on for a sacrifice bunt that moved two runners into scoring position. It was unusual strategy to surrender an out down two runs, but Maddox had faith that Tonseth could ETTERS produce a game-tying single. “We knew John would execute on the bunt, and Philip is always calm and wants to be the guy at the plate in that situation,” Maddox said. Knight sensed danger. Tonseth jogged to first base with a walk , and it was up to Nolan Meyerhoeffer. He came through with a solid single to left to score two. Pinch-runner Chase Etters scored easily from second, and the Hornets had forced extra innings. “Their 4-hole hitter (Meyerhoeffer) bulleted one,” Knight said. “He shoved a fastball right back at MURPH Yoder, and not many people do that.” Reliever Sam Murph got the Hornets out of a jam in the seventh and enjoyed a breezy eighth, but Nick Estevez led off the ninth against him with a double down the left-field line. After a walk put two on, Knox relieved Murph. A nice sacrifice bunt by Mason Corzine set the table for Covington’s bloop, and Central led 4-3. Brandon Porter’s sac fly made it 5-3. Salisbury loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth, but Yoder got Swaim to ground out to shortstop to finally end it. “Our pitching was the bright spot,” Maddox said. “We’ve just got to get the bats going.”

Intimidators fall; NFL legend dies From staff and wire reports Drew Lee hit his first homer of the season for the Kannapolis Intimidators in a 7-6, 10-inning loss at Lexington on Monday. Joe “The Jet” Perry dies SAN FRANCISCO — Hall of Fame fullback Joe Perry, the first player with back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons and nicknamed “The Jet” for his sensational speed, died Monday. He was 84. The San Francisco 49ers announced that Perry, also a World War II veteran, had died Monday in Arizona of complications from dementia. Perry was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1969 following a 16-year NFL career, 14 years with the 49ers and the other two for the Baltimore Colts. A three-time Pro Bowler and twotime All-Pro, Perry still stands as San Francisco’s all-time leader in yards rushing (7,344) and touchdowns rushing (50). He led the 49ers in rushing on eight occasions, including seven consecutive seasons from 1949-1955. “I was deeply saddened to hear of Joe Perry’s passing earlier today,” 49ers owner John York said. “He was a dear friend to my family and me and to the entire 49ers organization. He was also an intricate part of our rich history. A truly remarkable man both on and off the field, Joe had a lasting

impact on the game of football and was an inspirational man to the generations of players that followed him. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to his wife, Donna, and his entire family. He will be sadly missed by all of us.” Perry finished with 9,723 yards rushing on 1,929 carries with 71 touchdowns in 181 career games. He also had 2,021 yards receiving on 260 catches for 12 touchdowns. He broke the NFL record for most career yards rushing, a total that was later topped by Jim Brown. Perry, who also spent a stint in the Navy and served during World War II, became the first player with consecutive 1,000-yard seasons in 1953 and ‘54. The 49ers retired Perry’s No. 34 jersey in 1971. Perry was a member of “The Million Dollar Backfield” featuring four future Hall of Famers in Perry, Hugh McElhenny, John Henry Johnson and Y.A. Tittle. For three seasons from 1954-56, they formed a fearsome foursome. The group remains the only fullhouse backfield to have all four of its members voted into the Hall of Fame. Perry regularly attended enshrinement ceremonies at the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, supporting 49ers ownership and former players. “All of us here are extremely saddened to learn of the passing of the great Joe Perry,” said Hall president and executive director Steve Perry.


FROM 1B outburst seemed to spark NR, which scored seven runs in the final two innings. “I hate to fire a team up like that,” said Rimer, who wasn’t sure if he was ejected or disqualified. “But sometimes you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do. I just wanted them to know how big that moment was.” North still trailed 13-10 when it came to bat in the top of the seventh. Mauldin, who went 3-for-5 with three RBIs, dumped a run-scoring single into shallow left field to spark the comeback. Then catcher Alex Morgan’s bad-hop single loaded the bases with one out. After retiring Matt Laurens on a popup, losing pitcher Alex Cagide uncorked a two-out wild pitch and Wesley Barker raced home to make it 13-12. “Our approach that inning was to just be patient,” said Morgan (3-for-5, 2 RBIs). “Hit the ball hard and if you can’t, try to work out a walk.” Smith was next and he

whipped a sinking liner that Knight nearly scooped out of the air while diving in medium left-center field. The ball trickled to his side as Mauldin and Morgan charged across the plate. “We really weren’t hitting the ball very well in the beginning,” Mauldin said, a reference to Lake Norman starting pitcher Taylor Thurber’s effectiveness. “But the way they kept messing up gave us a spark. It was like, ‘Don’t strike out. Just put it in play and maybe they’ll make a mistake.” Morgan added, “He threw a lot of strikes, but after a while we just hit him.” Their reward was an unexpected third-place finish in the tourney. “It feels good,” Mauldin said. “We’re a 1A school and look what we did to them.” • NOTES: Knight was 3-for-4 with a fourth-inning homer, two doubles and four RBIs.

Golf needs new blood to succeed BY RON KROICHICK San Francisco Chronicle

Ten different players have won the past 10 majors. Charl Schwartzel is trotting around the globe wearing a green jacket. Some guy named Brendan Steele won two weeks ago in San Antonio. What in the name of Eldrick T. Woods is happening here? Golf needs fresh blood in this new era of Vulnerable Tiger, absolutely. But it also needs some young players to make more than a fleeting appearance in the winner’s circle — pronto — so fans can begin to know who the heck they are. As the 2011 season nears the end of its fourth month, the prevailing theme is the spate of unheralded winners. They streak across the sky like a comet, briefly gathering glory before abruptly disappearing. There went Jhonattan Vegas, winning the Bob Hope Classic and all but vanishing since then. D.A. Points soon followed, conquering Pebble Beach and not making a peep in the next two months. Steele, Gary Woodland, Martin Laird — it requires dimple-headed devotion to recognize this year’s parade of under-the-radar winners. The final round of the Masters resonated because of its chaotic theater, with three different five-way ties and no fewer than eight players seizing at least a share of the lead. But it also was cool because we knew many of the central characters, from Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy to Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy. Not everyone can win 71 times, like Woods. But it would help if a handful of players — preferably dynamic young stars such as McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson — win often enough to carve out a stronger identity. Woods caused this logjam. Say what you want about his

lingering winless drought and increasingly snippy demeanor, but his impact on the game is undeniable. He made it more athletic (see: Johnson and Bubba Watson) and he brought more players into the fold (see: McIlroy and Jason Day). McIlroy spoke candidly in Augusta about his ambition climbing into another realm at age 7, when he watched Woods roll to victory in the 1997 Masters. Day similarly idolized Tiger as a kid in Australia, to the point of mimicking his preshot routine. There simply are more good golfers than ever, and it traces to the way Woods burst onto the scene early in his career — winning frequently, winning decisively and turning golf into a tantalizing path for young athletes all around the world. So now, as Woods struggles to rediscover his game at 35, there is not one heir to the throne but an ever-expanding crowd. Martin Kaymer, ranked second after a stint at No. 1, is steady but not especially charismatic. Neither top-rated Lee Westwood nor No. 3 Luke Donald has won a major, and both are in their 30s. The most intriguing faces are the youngest: McIlroy (21), Fowler (22), Day (23), Matteo Manassero (18) and Ryo Ishikawa (19). Manassero offered another hint of his immense talent earlier this month, when he won the European Tour event in Malaysia, topping a field including Schwartzel and McIlroy. McIlroy did his part, fighting through jet lag to rise into weekend contention before finishing third. That counted as newsworthy, mostly because people still held fresh visions of his Masters experience — three fabulous days and one epic, final-round meltdown.

TRESSEL FROM 1B NCAA compliance department, or anyone in the university’s legal department. Instead, he forwarded the email to Jeannette, Pa., businessman Ted Sarniak, a friend and mentor to star quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who was subsequently discovered to be one of the players involved with Rife. The Columbus Dispatch reported Monday that Tressel went on to exchange at least 12 emails with Cicero, and also had numerous lengthy telephone conversations with Sarniak over the weeks and months ahead. Tressel still did not tell any of his superiors, anyone at the NCAA or his own compliance or legal departments. In September of 2010, Tressel even signed a mandatory and rather routine Ohio State compliance form which clearly and simply asks if he the coach has knowledge of any NCAA violations. By signing and dating it, he said that he did not. The U.S. Attorney contacted Ohio State in December to notify the university that it had come across the memorabilia. That prompted a cursory investigation — Smith conceded to The Associated Press last week that the effort was rushed — that did not turn up the telltale emails between Cicero and Tressel but did uncover the players’ involvement with Rife. After consulting with the NCAA and the Big Ten, Pryor and four other top players were handed five-game suspensions — curiously not including the next game, the Sugar Bowl, but beginning with the first five games of the 2011 season. Tressel was asked at a news conference if the players knew they were doing something wrong. “I suppose that would be something rattling around inside the head of each of them individually,” he said. “We all have a little sensor within us, ‘Well, I’m not sure if I should be doing this.’”

Leslie to stay at State

NCAA FOOTBALL OMAHA, Neb. — Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne is hoping Bo Pelini’s new five-year contract wards off teams that might want to hire the Cornhuskers’ head coach. Pelini’s deal gives him an immediate $425,000 raise, to $2.775 million, and will pay him more than $3 million a year starting in 2014. “We feel like he’s done a good job, and we’d like to retain him here and we want to send that signal,” Osborne said Monday. “In a relatively short time he’s gotten things moving in the right direction.”

SAN DIEGO — The Michigan State-North Carolina basketball game on an aircraft carrier on San Diego Bay on Veterans Day will be one tough ticket. If you’re Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson, no problem. If you’re among the approximately 4,000 military personnel selected, come on board. If you’re real tight with either school, you might have a fighting chance. Otherwise, a seat in front of a TV is going to be the only way to see the first NCAA hoops game to be played on a flat top. Organizer Mike Whalen of Morale Entertainment Foundation said tickets won’t be sold to the public. They’ll be free to those lucky enough to be chosen, and scalpers will be out of luck. Whalen said ticket holders’ names will be printed on the front, and ID must match. “It makes sure that the right people are going to the game and that there’s no aftermarket,” Whalen said Monday. “It’s an added measure of security. Again, this is a United States warship. We’ve got to make sure we know who’s coming onboard the ship.” Jordan and Johnson are ex-

pected to be the honorary captains. For obvious reasons, organizers won’t know until much closer to the Nov. 11 game which aircraft carrier will serve as host. It probably will be the USS Ronald Reagan or the USS Carl Vinson, said Whalen, who’s spent time in San Diego meeting with Navy officials. A court and stadium seating for about 7,000 fans will be set up on the flight deck. In case of rain, the game will be moved below to the hangar deck, with bleacher seating for the fans. Each school will get 750 tickets, 400 will go to coaches participating in a clinic and 1,000 will go to the Morale Entertainment Foundation and its partners: the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, Wounded Warrior Project and the San Diego Air & Space Museum. Although the teams’ travel expenses will be paid by organizers, each school is giving up a home date — and the money it would have made. Whalen said talks with ESPN to broadcast the game should be finalized this week. Tipoff will be shortly after 4 p.m. San Diego time. Whalen said organizers also plan a postgame concert on the carrier.

The NHL roundup ... TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Lightning followed Dwayne Roloson’s lead to remain alive in the NHL playoffs. The 41-year-old goaltender, who says the key to thriving in the postseason is to have a short-term memory, stopped 27 shots Monday night to outplay Pittsburgh’s Marc-Andre Fleury and beat the Penguins 4-2 to force a Game 7 in their first-round Eastern Conference series. The deciding game is Wednesday night in Pittsburgh, where fifth-seeded Tampa Bay has already won twice this postseason, including an 8-2 Game 5 blowout that began its comeback from a 3-1 deficit in the series. “We just played two Game 7s because that is the position we are in,” Lightning coach Guy Boucher said after his team avoided

elimination for the second time in three days. “That fifth game was a do or die for us, and the sixth was a do or die.” Steve Downie put the Lightning ahead for good, scoring just over a minute after Pittsburgh’s Jordan Staal gave the fourth-seeded Penguins life with a goal that made it 2-2 early in the third. Teddy Purcell, Sean Bergenheim and Ryan Malone also scored against Fleury, who faltered for the second straight game. “It’s a seven-game series. They’re a good team,” Pittsburgh’s James Neal said. “We’ve played them hard all series long. It comes down to one now. Lay it out on the line ... do what we can, and come out with the win.” Pulled after yielding four goals on 14 shots in Game 5, Fleury couldn’t protect an early lead and struggled again when Pittsburgh looked like it had regained momentum.

The Pittsburgh goalie was spectacular in Game 1, delivering an acrobatic 32-save performance that produced his fifth career postseason shutout. He’s struggled in the Penguins’ three losses and allowed the Lightning to rally from two-goal deficits in two games Pittsburgh went on to win. Still, Fleury expects the Penguins to regroup and win Game 7. “We know we can play,” Fleury said. “I’m still positive and think we can do it.” Downie’s go-ahead goal came moments after Roloson rejected point-blank shots by Maxime Talbot and Pascal Dupuis. The Tampa Bay goalie also was at his best in the second period, when the Lightning killed four penalties and Pittsburgh’s Chris Conner failed to score on a penalty shot that would have tied the score.

Carrier classic set to be tough ticket

— and Jason Kidd had 14 assists to make sure Dallas bounced back strong from blowing a 23-point lead over the final 14 minutes of Game 4. Now the Mavericks have two days to rest up before trying to close out the series in Game 6 on Thursday night in Portland. It won’t be easy as the Trail Blazers have won all four meetings there this season. History is certainly on Dallas’ side to pull out the series. Of the previous 157 series tied at 2, the Game 5 winner has come out on top 83 percent of the time.

RALEIGH — North Carolina State forward C.J. Leslie isn’t entering the NBA draft this year. Team spokeswoman Annabelle Myers said Monday that Leslie opted not to file paperwork to enter the draft early. The deadline for underclassmen to enter the draft was 11:59 p.m. Sunday. The 6-foot-8 Leslie averaged 11 points and a team-best 7.2 rebounds as a freshman last season for the Wolfpack, who finished 15-16 in coach Sidney Lowe’s final year. Leslie was a McDonald’s All-American in 2010 who was considered a possible one-anddone player coming out of high school.

news Monday. Rose had a walking boot on his left foot Sunday but the AllStar point guard is expected to play against Indiana in Game 5 on Tuesday night in Chicago. The Bulls lead the firstround playoff series 3-1. Rose sprained his left ankle late in the first quarter of Saturday’s 89-84 loss to the Pacers. CARACTER ARRESTED NEW ORLEANS — Authorities say Los Angeles Lakers forward Derrick Caracter was arrested in New Orleans, accused of public drunkenness and shoving a pregnant cashier at a pancake restaurant. Police said the 22-year-old player was arrested early Sunday and booked into jail on charges of battery, public drunkenness and resisting arrest. They say Caracter allegedly grabbed and shoved the cashier at an International House of Pancakes after he was refused service and became belligerent. The woman wasn’t injured.

Mavericks 93, Trail Blazers 82 DALLAS — Holding another double-digit lead going into the fourth quarter, the Dallas Mavericks found a great way to protect it. They just stood and watched the Portland Trail Blazers miss 10 straight shots.

to determine what or if offseason workouts can be held while the appeal is being heard. Clearly, it’s complicated. Jim Quinn, an attorney for the players said time is of the essence. “They better act quickly, because as of right now there’s no stay and, presumably, players could sign with teams,” he said. “There are no guidelines as of right now, so they have to put something in place quickly.” Owners imposed the lockout after talks broke down March 11 and the players disbanded their union.

request along with a class-action antitrust lawsuit against the league. Nelson’s ruling simply lifts the lockout and does not address any of the antitrust issues. That will come another day. “We believe that federal law bars injunctions in labor disputes,” the league said. “We are confident that the Eighth Circuit will agree. But we also believe that this dispute will inevitably end with a collective bargaining agreement, which would be in the best interests of players, clubs and fans. We can reach a fair agreement only if we continue negotiations toward that goal.” The NFL is going forward with the draft, which begins Thursday night.

crushed a three-run homer to blow it wide open. “I had a good at-bat, fouled off a few and then got a pitch I could do something with,” Foster said. “But we got it started with the smallball. That’s not something we’ve done a lot of, so it’s good to know we can do it.” McMichael ended Davie’s streak of five consecutive 10run rule romps, but the War Eagles still walked away with championship medals. “One of our goals,” Carson Herndon said. “We didn’t win this last year, so we came here with a chip on our shoulder.”

“Beason’s our No. 4 or No. 5 pitcher, but we always feel good with him,” Coach Herndon said. “We knows he’s not going to walk many and he’s gonna pound the strike zone.” Davie players said that even though it was surprisingly tight when they came to bat in the bottom of the sixth, they weren’t worried. “It felt just like the North Davidson game to me,” Foster said. “That one’s 1-1 in the fifth, and then we have a 13run inning.” Davie 9, McMichael 2 Watson agreed.

Williams patient with Sox Associated Press NEW YORK — White Sox general manager Ken Williams is taking a patient approach with his struggling ballclub. Williams traveled to New York after Chicago lost for the 10th time in 11 games Sunday. The White Sox hadn’t scored a run in two games and faced the first-place Yankees on Monday night. “All I can do is come to the clubhouse and give some hugs, some support in that way,” Williams said. “The good thing is we have the ability, we have the talent.” Williams spent 21/2 hours in an airport Monday waiting out a delay and listening to some very opinionated White Sox fans. They offered up all sorts of advice. But Williams prefers to ride out this deep funk — the White Sox were coming off threegame sweep in Detroit in which they failed to score a run in the final two games of the series. “We’ve earned every bit of it. We’ve not hit, we’ve not pitched consistently and we’ve not caught the ball. We’ve played as poorly as we possibly can play,” he said. “If there was an obvious reason it would be fixed.” The White Sox were expected to compete for the AL Central title this year after bringing in slugger Adam Dunn and increasing the team’s payroll to about $125 million. But in the topsyturvy division, Chicago is in last place at 8-14, 51/2 games back of Cleveland. Dunn and Alex Rios entered Monday hitting under .200 and the White Sox have hit .197 in their last 12 games. Williams and manager Ozzie Guillen both cited the tough pitching the squad has faced but wouldn’t use that as an excuse for the poor play.

Humber stymies Yankees in 6th start Associated Press

The AL roundup ... NEW YORK — Phil Humber has been on more teams than he has victories. His most impressive outing came against the ballclub that first recognized he had the talent to do something special. Humber held the Yankees hitless until Alex Rodriguez grounded a single up the middle with one out in the seventh inning Monday night and the Chicago White Sox made the effort stand up with a 2-0 victory over New York. “When I was young I had big dreams. I thought I was going to go out there and dominate every time,” Humber said. “It hasn’t worked out that way to this point.” Humber was making the sixth start of his career for his fifth team and had a career record of 3-3. Orginally drafted by the Yankees in 2001 — he turned them down to go to Rice — Humber never expected this kind of success against the All-Star lineup. “You don’t expect to hold an offense like that down especially just giving up one hit but you got to make pitches and not worry about who’s up there at the plate,” he said. The White Sox won for only the second time in 12 games. Chicago snapped a 23inning scoreless drought in the fourth when Carlos Quentin doubled and scored on Adam Dunn’s grounder, and added a run in the ninth after a popup fell behind the mound, in front of charging shortstop Derek Jeter. Sergio Santos got the four outs for his first save and Chicago’s second save in eight chances this season. He gave the White Sox a scare, though, allowing a leadoff single to Curtis Granderson. But Mark Teixeira hit into a double play. Rodriguez struck out to end the three-hitter. Blue Jays 6, Rangers 4 ARLINGTON, Texas — Corey Patter-

Patterson’s three-run shot off Colby Lewis (1-3) with two outs in the fifth was followed by Bautista’s 405-foot blast to left — his majors-leading eighth homer. After pitching coach Mike Maddux visited the mound, Adam Lind drew a walk and Juan Rivera followed with his first homer of the season for a 6-0 lead. Drabek (2-0), a 23-year-old rookie and Texas native, had gotten a no-decision in three consecutive starts that the Blue Jays

won after he had pitched into at least the sixth. The right-hander gave up three runs and five hits in six innings against the Rangers. Texas designated hitter Michael Young extended his hitting streak to 15 games with an RBI double off the right-field wall that made it 6-3 in the sixth. Ian Kinsler also had a run-scoring double in the inning. Toronto entered the four-game series having lost 10 of 14 games overall, but is now 12-1 in its last 13 series openers dating to last season. Jon Rauch worked the ninth, giving up a leadoff homer to Nelson Cruz, before closing out his fourth save in four chances.

Castro with rough day as Cubs fall to Rockies Associated Press

The NL roundup ... CHICAGO — Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro committed three errors in the second inning and the Colorado Rockies beat Chicago 5-3 Monday night. Matt Garza’s errant throw to first on a bunt was the Cubs’ fourth error of the night and opened the door to two more runs. Dexter Fowler had a triple, walk and scored a run for Colorado. Huston Street pitched the ninth for his eighth save in eight chances. Rockies starter Esmil Rogers gave up eight hits and four walks, but just three runs in 5 1-3 innings. Only one of the five runs scored against Garza were earned. He gave up three hits and a walk in six innings. Kosuke Fukudome set a career high with five hits, all singles and Darwin Barney hit a two-run homer in the first inning. Marlins 5, Dodgers 4 MIAMI — Omar Infante lined a two-out RBI single that left fielder Jerry Sands misjudged in the ninth inning, capping a two-run rally that helped the Florida Marlins beat the Los

colorado starter esmil rogers got the win for the rockies. Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Monday night. Both runs were unearned. Scott Cousins’ two-out grounder scooted under the glove of shortstop Jamey Carroll for an error to score the tying run. Chris Coghlan was then intentionally walked to load the bases, and Infante lined a 1-0 pitch to left. Sands started in, braked and leaped, and the ball sailed over his glove. The Marlins’ ninth comeback win this season received a boost from All-Star shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who was mired in a 2-for-27 slump com-

ing into the game and held out of the starting lineup. He pinchhit with two outs in the ninth and Florida trailing 4-3, and his single put runners at first and third. Because of the fielding lapses, Jonathan Broxton (1-1) blew a save for the first time in seven chances. Brian Sanches (3-0) extended his scoreless streak to start the season to 13 2-3 innings with a perfect ninth. Reds 9, Brewers 5 MILWAUKEE — Dusty Baker shook up his lineup looking for answers with Scott Rolen on the disabled list. Brandon Phillips took advantage of being back in a familiar spot. Phillips went 3 for 4 and drove in three runs hitting fourth, Jay Bruce added a tworun homer and the Cincinnati Reds used a six-run third inning to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-5 on Monday night. “I came through, and I’m glad I did because we really needed those runs,” said Phillips, who has batted cleanup 343 times in his career. “The changes to the lineup really woke us up a bit.” Baker said he’ll continue shuffling the lineup to look for the right combinations.

“That’s what we’re going to have to do, especially until we get Scotty back,” Baker said of his third baseman. “I’m just glad we got Brandon hot.” Pirates 4, Nationals 2 PITTSBURGH — Brandon Wood’s two-run double in his first game for Pittsburgh was part of a four-run fourth inning. Paul Maholm (1-3) retired the final 13 batters he faced in seven strong innings as Pittsburgh made up the original series opener that was postponed by rain on Friday. Wood, picked up on waivers from the Los Angeles Angels on Friday, gave the Pirates their first lead with a two-run double. Announced paid attendance was 12,457, but only about 2,600 made it through the turnstiles on what wasn’t originally a scheduled game night. Also contributing to the poor showing was rain that caused a 21minute delay and a Penguins playoff game at the same time. Joel Hanrahan struck out pinch-hitter Rick Ankiel looking with runners on first and third and two outs in the ninth to finish his sixth save. John Lannan (2-2) allowed four runs on five hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 5 2-3 innings.

Superbugs attack health facilities nationwide Dear Dr. Gott: While watching television, I saw an article on a new form of bug that has invaded our country. Can you elaborate on what they refer to as CRKP? Dear Reader: Actually, it’s not so new. The CDC began tracking CRKP in 2009. CRKP stands for Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae. It is a gramnegative bacteria known to DR. PETER cause infection in the GOTT bloodstream, at surgical or wound sites and in cases of pneumonia and meningitis in healthcare settings, specifically nursing homes and long-term-care hospitals. This bacterial infection is emerging as a major challenge for control because it is resistant to almost all available antimicrobial agents. Infections have been linked with high rates of morbidity and mortality, particularly in people with central venous catheters or on ventilators. The bacteria live harmlessly in human intestines. “Superbugs” only occur when bacteria mutate to the point where antibiotics that were once effective are no longer working. According to ABC News, the CDC has indicated that the bacteria are more difficult to treat than MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus) and that healthy people are not in danger of the bacteria but the aged, frail and otherwise ill

patient is. The bacteria have been reported in 35 states at the time of this writing, but I am sure that number will rise before things are brought under control. It appears the hardesthit area is Los Angeles County, Calif., with more than 350 reported cases. The situation is further complicated because many patients have numerous other health issues to deal with. Columbia University Medical Center reported that of the 42 percent of those patients in New York who were infected, half had organ transplants. The bacteria are most easily spread by hand-to-hand contact, such as from shaking hands with a physician or other healthcare professional. Oddly enough, there isn’t much of a threat from using a telephone, touching a doorknob or bed linens, or from a doctor or nurse touching and reviewing a chart. Person-toperson contact is the primary culprit. All infected patients should be treated with caution, and strict guidelines must be adhered to. At this stage, intervention for rapid control of recognition is vital.

seeking help. Would acupuncture possibly be helpful? Any suggestions as to the cause of possible treatment would be greatly appreciated. Dear Reader: There are a number of possibilities, including a thiamine or vitamin B12 deficiency, rheumatoid arthritis, nerve impingement and damage, cervical herniation of C 6-7, carpal-tunnel syndrome, kidney failure or the result of chronic alcoholism. These seem rather unlikely, so my best guess is that the problem is coming directly from his hand. Something is going on with your son that either he has ignored or has chosen not to address. The issue here is that he needs to have testing done to zero in on the exact cause of the numbness. He can likely wait until he returns home; however, I am sure that he can see a qualified physician before he gets here. If he cannot find relief through his doctor, he can ask for a referral for a second opinion, perhaps from a hand specialist. Trigger-point therapy has proven successful for numerous conditions. Because acupuncture has many similarities, he certainly might Dear Dr. Gott: We’ve just find relief going that route. returned from a visit with It’s worth a try. our son, who is currently living in China.

A defensive decision with consequences BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

Ben Stein said, “The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want.” When on defense, you must decide whether the contract will fail as long as you and your partner do not err, or will make only if declarer works out what to do. In the former case, you should signal accurately, making sure partner knows exactly what you have. But in the latter position, you should not signal at all — don’t help declarer. In this deal, you are East. South opens one no-trump, North uses a two-diamond transfer bid, South jumps to three hearts to show a maximum with four hearts and a doubleton somewhere (a superaccept), and North moves on to game. West leads a trump. Declarer draws two

NBC cans ‘Paul Reiser Show’ NEW YORK (AP) — NBC has yanked “The Paul Reiser Show” after just two little-watched airings. The comedy, which attempted a TV comeback for the former star of “Mad About You,” attracted a dismal 3.4 million viewers to its premiere. That same week TV’s highest-rated comedy, “Modern Family” on ABC, had 9.6 million viewers. The “Reiser” audience then dropped last week to 2.4 million viewers.

rounds of trumps, plays a diamond to dummy’s king, returns a diamond to his ace, and ruffs a diamond in the dummy. What would you discard? West did well not to lead a minor suit, which would have given away a trick. It is tempting to pitch the club nine to tell partner that you have a high honor in that suit. But on this deal, South has to guess the club suit. And if he believes you are honest, he will lead a club from the dummy and put up his king. As West knows what is happening in the red suits, you should not advertise your holding. Just throw the club two. And then play low smoothly when declarer plays a club from the dummy. If he gets it right, at least you did the best you could. But most Souths would put in the club jack and go down.

More severe weather will persist across the Eastern US as a low pressure system continues making its way through the nation. The system will push a warm front through New England and into the Northeast, while a cold front will extend south of this system, sweeping through the Gulf states. In between these two frontal boundaries, warm and moist air will pour in from the Gulf of Mexico, creating warm and humid conditions across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic states. These conditions will be favorable for severe storms development. This system has a history of producing strong and dangerous winds, large hail, and even tornadoes. If storms turn severe they will most likely develop across the Southeast. Rainfall totals will vary between 2 and 3 inches in areas of severe storms, while most of the Midwest and Ohio River Valley will see around an inch of rain. Thus, flooding will remain of concern across the Ohio and Mississippi River Valley as the already soaked ground will see more heavy rains. Meanwhile, to the west, a low pressure system that brought rain to the West Coast will continue moving eastward and over the Rocky Mountains. Precipitation from this system will turn to snow as it moves over the Rockies. Snowfall accumulation across the Northern and Central Rockies will range around 1 to 2 inches. As this system moves east, the West Coast will dry out due to a building ridge of high pressure. A few light showers may persist over the Pacific Northwest, but most of California will be drier with a few patchy clouds.
