Cancer survivors rally in Relay for Life BY SHAVONNE POTTS

Breast cancer survivor Sarah Zander owes thanks to the family dog, Daisy, who she says discovered her cancer. Zander, her husband, Ray, and son, Wyatt, 13, walked Friday night during the 16th annual Rowan County Relay for Life survivors lap. Sarah was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2009. Before she even suspected cancer, her dog — a mutt the family rescued — kept sniffing her. The family chalked it up to puppy behavior. Daisy sniffed at Sarah’s right breast area for weeks. She was frying bacon one Sunday morning when the grease popped her. When she reached for the area, she felt something. “We knew she needed to go to the doctor,” Ray said. Sarah made an appointment. Shortly after she underwent a lumpectomy. “I just finished what I call the ‘ugly’ chemo. I’m now on Herceptin,” she said. Sarah will start radiation in two weeks. After the surgery, Daisy never sniffed at Sarah again. “She’s my sweetie,” Sarah said. The Rockwell resident and her co-workers at the YMCA, who are part of team Zander Zanies, raised money for Relay. Much of their time has been spent at doctor’s appointments. “Next year, I’m going to blow them out of the water,” Sarah said. It was important for Ray to support

Sarah and help keep life as close to normal as possible. “He wouldn’t let me stay at home and sulk,” she said. Relay For Life is a major fundraiser for the American Cancer Society across the country. The Rowan County Relay is an annual overnight event where who have raised money to benefit the South Atlantic district for the Cancer Society gather to celebrate. Survivors jumpstart the event with a lap around the Rowan County fairgrounds and then release balloons into the air. Bill Anderson of Salisbury was diagnosed in 2002 with esophageal cancer. After a routine visit, his doctor called to break the news that he discovered cancer in his blood. “It surprised us,” he said. A week later his wife, Hazel, was diagnosed with lung cancer. She died two months after Bill had surgery. “I was married to her for 53 years, 14 days, 15 hours and 49 minutes,” he said. He continues to walk in honor of her and to celebrate his survival. Arm-in-arm with her mother Evelyn Cranford, Shelby Josey walked along with her husband, Carl, in honor of herself as well as several people shouted her name and clapped as she made it past them. Shelby, a Salisbury resident, is a breast cancer survivor who is currently awaiting a liver transplant. Shelby found lumps in her breast and was sent for testing. She was diagnosed in early 2000 and later had her breast removed. She has nonalcoholic

Amy Collins’ memory to live on through scholarship BY SARAH CAMPBELL

Child advocate Amy Collins lost her yearlong battle with cancer Thursday, but her memory will live on through a scholarship established in her name. Amy, 61, passed away at her home on Mocksville Avenue around 1:30 p.m. “She was completely surCOLLINS rounded by friends and family,” Dick Palmore, Amy’s husband of 23 years, said Friday.

Collins, and friend, Rossi Bramer, helped care for her from the time she was diagnosed in February 2009. “They’ve been by her side the entire time” he said. Amy, a Burlington native, began her career as a social worker in Davie County before coming to Rowan County to start up the Guardian ad Litem program, which acts as a voice for abused and neglected children. “I am among those fortunate enough to be forever influenced by the unwavering example of (Amy’s) generous character and caring devotion to those in need.,” GAL volunteer April Marshall said in a letter this week. “ Through her

Construction is scheduled to start in October on a new Interstate 85 bridge over the Yadkin River after the state awarded a $136 million contract for the first phase of a project to make bridge and road improvements in Rowan and Davidson counties. The planned eight-lane bridge will replace two narrow, two-lane spans dating to 1955. The new bridge will be about 500 feet east of the current location. “We’re delighted that they awarded the contract and that they are going to start the bridge,” said Rep. Lorene Coates, a Democrat from Rowan County. “I’ve been working on this for 10 years, so it’s good to see that we’re going to do something about it and not just talk about it.” The N.C. Department of Transportation said Friday it awarded a contract to Flatiron-Lane, a joint venture of Flatiron Constructors Inc. and The Lane Construction Corp., after the partnership submitted a bid far less than the anticipated $180 million cost for the construction. Flatiron-Lane’s bid wasn’t the lowest, the Department of Transportation said, but its proposal showed it would “provide the best value to the taxpayers” through construction techniques that will reduce environmental impact, minimize traffic disruption and accelerate the project. Completion is set for January 2013, about eight months earlier than originally anticipated. Flatiron-Lane intends to permanently remove I-85 traffic from the Yadkin River bridge by the spring of 2012. As part of their proposal, the contractors will be subject to a $5,000-a-

Amy’s devotion to making life better for children led her friends and family to create the Amy Collins Palmore Fund at Catawba College. “She made such an impression on those of us who were lucky enough to work with her as well as the families she touched and the community,” Linda Keller, Rowan County GAL program assistant, said Friday. The scholarship will be awarded to sociology students. “The goal is to point people toward GAL work,” Dick said. Amy’s family asks that in lieu of flowers memorials be made to the scholarship fund at the Catawba College Development Office, 2300 W. Innes St.

Pfeiffer University President Dr. Chuck Ambrose has been named president of the University of Central Missouri. Ambrose shared the announcement during a campus-wide forum Friday. He will become Central Missouri’s 15th president after 12 years as Pfeiffer’s chief executive. He will begin his new duties at UCM effective Aug. 1. “We are excited to see Chuck impact and transform another university community,” said Greg Hunter, chair of Pfeiffer’s Board of Trustees. “Simultaneously, we send him off with heavy hearts, because the Ambrose family has been a great presence within the Pfeiffer community and the surroundAMBROSE ing areas the university serves. We know they will remain a part of Pfeiffer always, and we are grateful that we have witnessed the many examples they have provided to us through their personal servant leadership.” At age 36, Ambrose became the eighth president of Pfeiffer University, a private institution affiliated with the United Methodist Church. Under Ambrose’s leadership, Pfeiffer has seen increase in enrollment by more than double, increases in operating revenues by nearly 90 percent, doubling the total level of annual support, enhanced academic profiles of students and the implementation of service learning programs across the curriculum. “Rarely within a professional career does one have an opportunity to put as much of oneself into an institution that is equally congruent and aligned with one’s identity and belief system,” Ambrose said. “Many times, and to many groups, I have referenced the Psalm that states that we are recipients of a delightful inheritance, and that is especially true for all of us who have shared in the community that has become Pfeiffer University.” Ambrose and his wife, Kristen, were instrumental in helping Jim and Helen Nance, and other members of the community establish Gray Stone Day School on the university’s Misenheimer campus. The Ambroses are parents of two children, Charlie, 18 and Kathryn, 15.

projects, and both have worked in North Carolina. Flatiron is based in Longmont, Colo., and has an office in Morrisville, near Raleigh. Lane’s headquarters are in Cheshire, Conn. The company owns Rea Contracting, which has a concrete plant in Kannapolis. Flatiron’s design-build work includes a $1.93 billion bridge and highway widening project in British Columbia, Canada and the $234 million St. Anthony Falls bridge in Minneapolis, Minn., which replaces a bridge that collapsed in 2007, killing 13 people. Lane lists several designbuild projects on its website, including a $61 million interstate reconstruction on Interstate 77 at Yadkin and the $131 million Knightdale Bypass on U.S. 64 just outside Raleigh, another partnership with Flatiron. Lane has also previously worked on I-85, overseeing the widening 8.3 miles of the interstate from northern Mecklenburg County to the Speedway/Concord Mills exit in Cabarrus County. That $22 million widening was also a design-build project. Some of the techniques the Transportation Department says Flatiron-Lane will use on the Rowan-Davidson project include: • Building the U.S. 29/70 northbound bridge using each completed section of the bridge as the work platform for the next section, eliminating the need for a temporary work bridge and reducing the impact to the environment; • A concerted effort to minimize disruption to I-85 traffic, improving safety when hauling materials and equipment to the construction sites; and • Constructing a single temporary work bridge instead of two separate temporary work bridges when replacing the I-85 bridge over the Yadkin River. Doing so is more environmentally friendly and will accelerate the work schedule, the state

agency said. Flatiron-Lane is providing a five-year warranty on the project, the Transportation Department said. The state has been working for years to get the project funded and will borrow most of the money to pay for it. The Department of Transportation originally budgeted $180 million for phase one and has received a $10 million federal stimulus grant to help fund the project. The state also set aside about $20 million in division highway funds for the project and plans to pay for the rest by issuing bonds that will be repaid with future federal transportation allocations. Spending less than anticipated on the I-85 project will allow the state to use bond money for other projects, the Department of Transportation said. The second phase of the project will be in Davidson County and incudes widening about 3.5 miles of I-85 to just north of I-85 business and reconstructing the interchange of I-85 at Belmont Road. That phase is expected to cost between $120 million and $130 million, down from earlier estimates of $150 million. The state doesn’t have the money to pay for it now, but Gov. Beverly Perdue included in her proposed budget a new Mobility Fund that would generate enough in its first two years to pay for the work. And Coates said U.S. Rep. Mel Watt has assured her that he will try to get more federal stimulus money for the project. Another $4 million in federal stimulus money will pay for rail improvements included in the I-85 corridor project and intended to allow for faster train speeds between Raleigh and Charlotte, the state said. To see a video of what the new bridge will look like, go to and search for “I-85 corridor improvement project.�

FROM 1A day penalty for not meeting that deadline. “After working for so long to generate the funding needed for this critical project, it’s exciting to prepare for construction to start,â€? Transportation Secretary Gene Conti said in a press release. “Once it’s complete, this project will increase safety, improve interstate commerce and make a real difference in helping motorists get where they need to go.â€? In addition to replacing the I-85 bridges spanning the Yadkin, phase one plans include: • Replacing the parallel bridges that cross over the North Carolina Railroad tracks north of the river; • Replacing the parallel bridges over the Duke Power Industrial Rail Spur south of river; • Replacing the bridge that carries U.S. 29/70 North over the river; • Reconstructing the interchange of I-85 at N.C. 150; • Removing the interchange of I-85 at Clark Road; • Widening about three miles of I-85 from four lanes to eight lanes; and • Building noise walls. The state is now finalizing right-of-way purchases and relocation of utilities. Flatiron-Lane is conducting design work and obtaining the required permit modification, the Department of Transportation said. Flatiron-Lane will construct phase one using the design-build method in which teams of designers and contractors work simultaneously to design and construct a project to expedite its completion. This approach helps avoid cost inflation on longer projects and allows the contractor to make innovations that save taxpayer dollars, the Department of Transportation said. Both companies have experience doing design-build

N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources cleans up old gas station site BY SHELLEY SMITH

What used to be a gas station at the intersection of Overman Avenue and West Innes Street is now a pit filled with dirt. According to state hydrologist Candy Elliot with the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, crews seen working throughout the past few weeks have removed old gasoline storage tanks and the surrounding dirt before filling it back up with uncontaminated dirt. The project is one of five the department is working on in Rowan County, totaling $555,000, with 100 percent of the funding coming from a federal grant through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The Underground Storage Tank (UST) section of NCDENR received about $7.6 million to clean up approximately 172 UST locations across the state.

“The funding was set aside by federal and state government to clean up sites where the owner is either dead, out of business, or sites where we can’t find anyone responsible for cleaning up the site,” Elliott said. Each site, she said, was referred by regional offices. “Unfortunately, most of the time money available in our department is very minimal,” Elliott said. “We’re really excited to have this stimulus grant now. “We’ve been working on it (the program) for over six months, and have two years total to use the money to the best of our ability,” Elliott said. “We are looking at gasoline leaks across the state, most rural gas stations that have been around since the 1920s.” Elliott said that during the 20s there were not as many health and environmental regulations as there are today.

“The gasoline tanks leaked, and it impacts the soil and groundwater in varying degrees,” she said. “Our first goal is to safeguard the public health, and then to remediate the tanks. “Not only are we encouraging growth in the economic sector, but doing something for the health of people in North Carolina.” Elliott noted that a lot has changed even in just the past four decades. “Forty years ago people didn’t think much about dumping gasoline outside,” she said. “The more we learn the more we realize that we’re all organisms in this system. “Environmental health is a really big issue and we discover that more and more.” Other sites in Rowan include Woodleaf, Cleveland and Kannapolis.

1 charged in carjacking Police have arrested a Cleveland man in the April 12 carjacking in the parking lot behind Salisbury City Hall. D e s i m o n d Kadeem Shaver, 19, of 152 Silk and Tassel Road, is charged with robbery with a firearm. He was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center SHAVER with bond set at $70,000. Two sisters, both teens, parked in the lot behind City Hall, 217 S. Main St., to go into the Meroney Theater. Two men approached them, one displaying a gun, and demanding the keys to their vehicle. They took the car, which was found a couple days later at a Salisbury Housing Authority apartment off Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue. Salisbury Police Chief Rory Collins said the investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are anticipated. Collins praised the work of Detective M.

Waddey finds success at Livingstone College Livingstone College News Service

Livingstone College President Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins, Sr. often says, “the college takes students where they are and gets them where they need to be.” Meet Cordell Waddey. Waddey enrolled at Livingstone in 2007 after his dismal 1.8 grade point average got him placed on academic suspension at St. Augustine’s College in Raleigh. He admits caring only about track and field, partying a lot during his freshman year and losing all interest in academics when he got red-shirted. That was then. Waddey is expected to graduate from Livingstone College today with a 3.5 GPA and a bachelor’s degree in

business administration. He plans to work for a while after graduating before earning an MBA and is talking to Verizon Wireless officials about a position in human resources management. “I didn’t know what a 3.0 GPA was until I got to Livingstone,” Waddey said in a telephone interview from his Richmond, Va., home. “That’s when I started caring about education. The professors really help you at Livingstone. I admit I didn’t apply myself at St. Aug’s, but I feel like the atmosphere at Livingstone — where professors take time with you and we have strict guidelines within the Holistic College — is conducive to learning and doing well.” Waddey should know. Besides graduating with an impressive GPA he’ll leave his

Saving trees in Spencer Laurels to ongoing attempts to preserve a 40-acre tract of woods in Spencer. This is a complicated issue, as evidenced by the Board of Aldermen’s split vote on whether the town should partner with the LandTrust for Central North Carolina to work out a deal with Craft Homes, which owns the tract. When plans for a residential development fell through, the developer’s next step appeared to be clearcutting the tract to harvest the timber — a landscape alteration that few residents welcomed. As Mayor Jody Everthart noted in casting the tie-breaking vote to partner with LTNC, this isn’t something the town had planned on — and it’s certainly not an ideal time to undertake such a venture in terms of finances. But sometimes, a tough issue can be an opportunity in disguise. The LandTrust partnership is an avenue worth pursuing and, with community support, offers the possibility of securing the tract as a natural asset that can be of longterm benefit for the town. • • • Dart to scammers and con artists who prey on the elderly. While many scams are equal-opportunity enterprises, targeting anyone who’ll part with their money or ID information, the elderly are particularly vulnerable. The best defense is eternal wariness and skepticism about any deal that appears too good to be true — and consumer education can help. Seniors and caregivers can learn more about guarding against scams next Wednesday, from 1-4 p.m., at the Davie County Senior Services’ Scam Jam, whose sponsors include AARP of North Carolina and several state agencies. For more information, call 336-7536230. • • • Laurels to Yadkin Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks’ monthlong “Tour de Yadkin” to raise awareness about issues related to the Yadkin River. Naujoks’ 200-mile journey evokes two contrasting perspectives. One is appreciation for the Yadkin as beautiful natural resource that provides drinking water and recreational activities; the other is concern about environmental degradation caused by agricultural wastes, municipal discharges and industrial pollutants. As anyone who’s ever canoed or kayaked on the Yadkin knows, a water-level view yields a particularly powerful perspective on the Yadkin, highlighting its beauty as well as its problems. The river and surrounding region are fortunate to have an energetic, committed caretaker like Naujoks working to protect the Yadkin for future generations.

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

“A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him.” — Sidney Greenberg

Moderately Confused

Arizona responding to a crisis rizona has decided that if the federal government will not live up to its responsibility to control the border, it will. Governor Jan Brewer, a Republican, signed a bill that allows police officers to inquire about a person’s immigration status if there is reason to suspect that individual might be an illegal immigrant. The governor correctly noted that the new law “represents another tool for our state to use as we work to solve a crisis we did not create and the federal government has refused to fix.” The latest example of that failure is the Obama administration’s refusal to finish the border fence begun with some reluctance by the Bush administration. Critics of the CAL new law, who THOMAS plan a court challenge, ask how police officers will “know” by observation whether someone might be in the country illegally. Police officers regularly make judgment calls about suspicious behavior, whether it involves erratic driving, passing small packets on the street in drug-infested neighborhoods, or searching cars for drugs and alcohol. “Immigrant groups” are upset that in Arizona people might actually be forced to comply with the law or face deportation. Let’s get something straight. The failure to protect America’s southern border has been a bipartisan effort. Democrats want more illegal immigrants in the country because they are a potential source of votes they hope will contribute to a permanent Democratic majority. Republicans and their donors want more illegal immigrants in America because they are a source of cheap labor. Once you understand this, you can ignore much of the talk about “human rights.” If a state, or nation, has laws it will not enforce for political reasons, it mocks both the law and politics, to say nothing of the cultural order. If the language of laws has no meaning other than what lawmakers assign to them af-


ter a law is enacted, it is proof that we have arrived in a kind of legal “Wonderland” in which Alice is told by Humpty Dumpty, “When I use a word ... it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.” To which Alice responds, “The question is ... whether you can make words mean so many different things.” Politicians constantly try. So what does the “illegal” in illegal immigration mean? For that matter, what does the less judgmental and legally vacuous “undocumented alien” mean? If something is illegal, according to, it is “forbidden by law or statute.” If one is “undocumented” that person lacks “the needed documents, as for permission to live or work in a foreign country.” Sociological and political considerations notwithstanding, the law should be the law and its requirements ought to be universally adhered to, or punishment imposed for their violation. According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, as of 2007, there are about 475,000 illegal immigrants in Arizona straining an already overburdened economy. Taxpaying citizens must underwrite the cost of schooling for their children, as well as visits to emergency rooms. In California, several hospitals have had to close because they could no longer afford to give free care to noncitizens. Gangs in Arizona operate under the command of drug lords in Mexico. This and other criminal activity threaten the peace and security of Arizonans and potentially all American citizens. Is this something that must be endured for the sake of “human rights groups” and “immigration rights groups,” or is it long past time to slow the flow? The Arizona legislature and Governor Brewer have correctly chosen to slow the flow. They realize a state and a nation unwilling to protect their borders cannot hope to preserve qualities that have made this country what it is but won’t be for much longer if we permit this illegal invasion to continue. • • • E-mail Cal Thomas at tmseditors@

The Rowan Medical Society Alliance was organized in 1948 by the spouses of Rowan County physicians to promote community health projects in Rowan County. This year, on March 31, the Alliance presented its main fundraiser, “Fashions for a Cause,” with the help and support of numerous volunteers and local businesses. All of the proceeds from our show go to support the Community Care Clinic of Rowan County. This year our total raised was over $10,000. The Community Care Clinic, with the volunteer help of our local doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists and others, provides medical care to people in the county who would otherwise not be able to afford it. We would like to thank the following stores that shared their beautiful clothes and models with our supporters: Anne’s Dress Shop, Bijoux, Maia’s Fashions, Stitchin’ Post Gifts and Thread Shed. Numerous other businesses and individuals provided funds, door prizes, raffle items and services. David Whisenant as our master of ceremonies continued his yearly tradition of charming us all with his humor and wit. We want to thank the people and small businesses who continuously share their talents, time and treasures with others in our town. Thank you for helping make Salisbury and Rowan County the caring community it is. — Elizabeth Kaufmann Rowan Medical Society Alliance

Respecting flag What has happened to our pride in America, our patriotic duty, our respect for our flag? Volunteering at Knox Middle School today, I witnessed what will become a nightmare for me. The TV in the classroom was promoting an upcoming Dodge Ball Event. At its conclusion, a young lady, a Knox student, announced that the Pledge of Allegiance was to begin. The teacher stood and said, “Stand for the Pledge.” She and I stood, placed our hands over our hearts, two other students stood but the remainder of the class sat, talked, finished breakfast; one student continued to paint her fingernails! The incredulous look on my face prompted the teacher to remark, “We cannot force them.” To the student I was mentoring and who did not stand, I asked, “Do you know our Pledge?” She replied, “Yes, but I don’t like to say it.” Staying for one hour in that classroom was torture; I felt sick-sick-sick to my stomach. I left Knox, went home and called my friend, a former Knox teacher, and cried for our country. Had it not been for Americans in WWII, we would be speaking German today and students would have no choice, that is … “We cannot force them.” Heil Hitler! A limit of words in this letter prohibits my listing other wars and conflicts where our country has intervened to protect us and others. Our fathers, husbands, wives, children and neighbors have died defending our liberty and those of others; they are dying today as I write. My heart is broken. — Julie S. Pinkston Salisbury

GRANITE QUARRY — The N.C. Department of Transportation’s Rail Division has made crossing safety improvements at an intersection in Granite Quarry. The DOT revised crossing signals and installed gates at the intersection of South Main Street and the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks. This $275,257 improvement project was paid for with 90 percent federal funds and 10 percent state funds. Maintenance funding for the project will be divided equally between the state

and Norfolk Southern Railroad. Two to four freight trains a day travel through the Granite Quarry railroad crossing at a maximum of 25 miles per hour. This project is a part of a comprehensive statewide NCDOT program to enhance highway safety by adding or improving signals and gates at public railroad crossings. Automatic warning devices are now in place at more than 2,400 of North Carolina's over 4,100 public at-grade crossings.

Motorcycle ride fundraiser set for Sunday

KANNAPOLIS — Hospice & Palliative Care of Cabarrus County has partnered with Kannapolis Parks and Recreation to offer two free workshops on advance care planning. The workshops, featuring living wills and health care power of attorney, will be held from 10 a.m. to noon and from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. May 18 at the Kannapolis Train Station. Ric Durham will conduct the workshops, which are open to anyone interested. Notaries public will be present at both times, and no fee will be charged for anyone wishing to prepare a Living Will or Healthcare Power of Attorney. Space is limited. To register, call Hospice & Palliative Care of Cabarrus County at 704-935-9434 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

A benefit for Beverly Stiller is planned for Sunday starting with registration at 10 a.m. in the Kohl’s parking lot in Salisbury. Stiller is battling cancer. The event will be a motorcycle ride, with kick stands up at 11:30 a.m. From Kohl’s, the ride will end up at Dan Nicholas Park at 1 p.m. Hot dogs and more will be served at the shelter on the left near the entrance to the park. To ride, there is a $10 bike fee and $5 rider fee. For more information, contact John Stiller at 336309-3743. The Stillers lived in Rockwell until a move to Lexington. They have five children. Beverly worked at R.J. Reynolds until a layoff last summer. She recently completed chemotherapy for a brain tumor.

SUCCESS FROM 3A Cornelius Waddey, a power operator for Dupont, and Josephine Waddey, an elementary teacher, are proud of their son. “I think his focus was in the wrong place at St. Aug’s,” Cornelius Waddey said. “He was really thinking about sports and just got disgruntled when he saw it wasn’t going to be what he thought it was going to be. When he grabbed hold of Livingstone, I explained to him that by going to college, he was paying those people to educate him and if he didn’t understand something he had to reach out and get the help he needed. I think the openness at Livingstone really helped him a lot. I’m right proud of him because he hung in there and started working hard on his education and realizing the importance of education. He has set a good example for his four younger siblings and others to follow.” Waddey’s hard work has paid off — literally. During honors convocation a few weeks ago he received several awards, including a $1,000 scholarship from his fraternity that he plans to save for graduate school. Dr. Stanley J. Elliott, vice president for student affairs, has known Waddey since his freshman year at St. Aug’s, where he worked as dean of students. “I can’t even tell you how proud I am of Cordell,” Elliott said. “I was Cordell’s counselor his freshman year at St. Aug’s. When he came in that next semester I gave him a hard time and told him he needed to get on the phone and call his parents. I made him call his mom. They came down, and I met his family. Eventually they took Cordell out of school after a year.” Shortly after Elliott began working at Livingstone, he ran into Waddey on campus. “I didn’t know where he had gone when he left St. Aug’s, but when I got here

he was one of the first students I saw,” Elliott said. “He told me he was on the Dean’s List, and the rest is history.” Elliott said he’s proud of Waddey for his remarkable academic transformation but also for his public service. Waddey was among a group of students who went to New Orleans last summer to perform Hurricane Katrina renovations and part of a group that traveled to Princeville in November to help repair lingering damages from 1999’s Hurricane Floyd. “His graduation is almost bittersweet because he’s such a good student I hate to see him leave,” Elliott said. “He’s well mannered, always saying ‘yes ma’am’ and ‘yes sir,’ he always dresses properly, never wearing saggy pants, and he’s always willing to pitch in and help out. Students like him are the reason a lot of us stay in education. I remember him when he was raw, a diamond in the rough. But Cordell is the poster child for perseverance.” Livingstone’s 2010 Commencement is being held at 10 a.m. in Alumni Memorial Stadium on campus but will be moved to Varick Auditorium in case of inclement weather. The speaker is Mike Jackson, chairman and CEO of AutoNation, Inc., America’s largest retailer of new and used vehicles. Other graduation highlights include the first four students from Livingstone’s Bridge Program to earn their degrees. The program is for students who have academic deficiencies in high school. They must successfully complete an intense summer program that includes classes in English, math, history, computers and theater as well as early-morning workouts, before being provisionally admitted as freshmen. The four Bridge Program students graduating today are Lakia Wright, Anthony Morrison, Leroy Smalls and Dymekea Bellamy, who finished her degree in three years.

LESS GOVERNMENT is the first step towards more prosperous times for our County, our State, and our Country. For every job created by our government, multiple numbers of real jobs must be taxed to pay the salary and benefits for that job. Government produces no product; therefore, government produces no profit with which to pay for government jobs. Our government, on every level, needs to redefine its role and responsibility towards the people it is supposed to represent. Government should tax its people to provide only the basic core functions. President Gerald Ford said:“A government that can do everything for you, can take everything from you.”

She knows it’s been the prayers of her church, family and friends that have carried her through. “I have so many people praying for me,” she said. The event also draws youth who also value the importance of the cause. Lucas Beam, 11, is one of those young people. He participates in Relay to honor his PawPaw Rodney Bolick and best friend Tabitha Smith, both cancer survivors. “Many people have cancer. It’s bad.” Lucus said. “I came to support them — this is for them.” It was four years ago that Bolick was diagnosed with throat cancer and Tabitha was diagnosed when she was three years old. “It changed my life,” Lucas said. He and his parents, Greg and Renee, have been participating in Relay for Life since Tabitha was diagnosed. Bolick had his voice box removed, his wife Donna said. It started when he was hoarse. “I was starting to worry. He

had a biopsy and it showed he had cancer,” Donna said. He had surgery followed by radiation. Two years later, the cancer returned. This time it was in Rodney’s lymph nodes. It wasn’t until the second surgery that Rodney could not speak. He gets help from a tracheoesophageal puncture (TEP), where an opening is created between the trachea and esophagus, which is then fitted with a special valve to create speech. He also has botox injections into muscles in his throat that also help with speech. A major Relay activity was Locks of Love, an organization that provides wigs for those who have lost their hair during cancer treatment and other diseases such as alopecia. Dozens of local participants grew their hair and had 10 or more inches chopped off and donated. David Hood, 16, and his mother, Kendra, were just two. “I really like doing this because I know somewhere there’s a little girl who will be so happy to get my hair,” David said. David, of Landis, first donated his hair in the eighth grade. He convinced his mother to donate alongside him this year. He continues to donate his hair because he knows it’s for such a good cause. “I’m making someone so happy,” he said. It takes David about two years to grow his hair before he’s able to get 12 inches cut.

LESS TAXES, on both the business and the private sector, will do more to stimulate growth and prosperity in our Country than any amount of money taken from the taxpayers and redistributed.The taxpayers, who actually work for their money, should be allowed to decide how their money is to be spent. Just and fair taxes for everyone are not a burden; however, unjust and unfair taxes are the greatest burden and deterrent to economic growth in our Country today. President Ronald Reagan said:“It is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.” He also said:“Government always finds a need for whatever money it gets.”The only special interest group that should be recognized when it comes to taxes is the individual taxpayer who pays those taxes.

If you live and die and never know JESUS, you will have missed it all! John 3:16

Less Control

LESS CONTROL by the government in the everyday lives of the citizens and taxpayers of this great Country will automatically result in a better and more productive society.Abusive use of forced annexation, eminent domain, and land-use planning by those who do not own the land are just a few of the areas we need less government control. Private citizens who buy the land and pay the taxes on it should have the right to decide where they live, what services they want or need from the government, and how they use their land. President Ronald Reagan said:“Man is not free unless government is limited.” He also said: “Government’s first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.”

Struggles cut deep with Woods BY DOUG FERGUSON Associated Press


Tiger Woods, center, reacts after his second shot on the 10th hole at Quail Hollow.

Clausen begins career

CHARLOTTE — Finally, all the talk about Tiger Woods was mostly about his golf. And it was more bad news. In a shocking meltdown Friday at the Quail Hollow Championship, Woods missed the cut for only the sixth time in his career with a performance that was incomparable for all the wrong reasons. He shot a 79, his worst score on American soil as a pro and the second-highest of his career. He matched his highest score on nine holes with a 43 on the back nine, and that was with three solid pars on the tough



closing stretch. His 36-hole score of 153 was the highest in his 14 years on the PGA Tour. Rust? Mechanics? Distractions from a personal life in turmoil? “It is what it is,” Woods said. “Whatever it was, it wasn’t good enough.”

Not even close. He missed the cut by a whopping eight shots — and he was 17 shots behind 36-hole leader Billy Mayfair — and headed back to Florida as speculation mounts that being caught in rampant extramarital affairs has tarnished more than his image. Making the performance even more surprising is that Woods was coming off a tie for fourth at the Masters three weeks ago, a remarkable result considering it was his first competition since a fivemonth hiatus created by his crisis at home.

CHARLOTTE — Perhaps it’s fitting the No. 7 Jimmy Clausen wore in college was already taken in Carolina. Now if the f o r m e r Notre Dame quarterback ever forgets his stunning fall down the draft, all he has to do is glance at the CLAUSEN number on his Panthers jersey for a reminder of the round he was finally taken: 2. Ready to prove his doubters wrong and possibly contend for a starting job as a rookie, Clausen suited up with the Panthers for the first time Friday for the opening of the team’s mandatory three-day minicamp. “It’s in the back of my head,” Clausen said of his draft snub, “but at the end of the day I’m just trying to come in and learn as much as I can.” Clausen seemed humble after his first NFL workout. It was a trait often missing during a career that started as a high school phenom in California and continued when he went 16-18 as a three-year starter with the Fighting Irish. That signature brashness was on display a week ago as he talked to reporters after Carolina finally ended his two-day draft wait. “I just want to tell you that you guys made the best pick in the draft,” he said. That was followed with this bold declaration: “My goal is to try to be the starter from day one.” Maybe it was the week to consider his plight from falling from what some predicted would be a top 10 selection to 48th overall in part because of questions about his attitude. Maybe it was the shock of seeing the speed and increased talent in the NFL. Perhaps coach John Fox, famous for speaking but saying nothing, had a chat with him. Either way, Clausen was saying all the right things. He arrived on Thursday from California with a 12-pack of Cactus Cooler, receiver Steve Smith’s favorite orangepineapple soda. He was seen on the field Friday buddying up with Pro Bowl left tackle Jordan Gross on the field. “I’m just trying to be one of the guys,” he said. “Today was a good day. Came out here and it was back to football. Had a good time, have a lot of learning to do and all the quarterbacks are helping me out. It’s going well.” Clausen’s arrival is part of Carolina’s new quarterback era that started when Jake Delhomme was cut in March.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Pau G a s o l Lakers 95 tipped in a Thunder 94 m i s s e d jumper by Kobe Bryant with a half-second left and the Los Angeles Lakers survived a late comeback effort by Oklahoma City and eliminated the Thunder 95-94 in Game 6 of the firstround playoff series on Friday. Gasol crashed to the rim at the right block and tipped in Bryant’s shot to put the defending NBA champions ahead after they squandered a sev- GASOL en-point lead in the fourth quarter. Gasol pumped both fists after the basket, and the Lakers moved on when Russell Westbrook missed a desperation 3-pointer at the final buzzer. Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 26 points on a dreadful 5-for-23 shooting night. Westbrook had 21 points and nine assists. Bryant scored 32 points and Gasol had nine points and 18 rebounds, scoring his only basket of the second half at the end. After missing 17 of his first 20 shots, Durant broke through with a 3-pointer from the right wing that ignited a 10-0 comeback by the Thunder. Westbrook followed with a jumper, and his three-point play off a putback of his own miss put Oklahoma City ahead 92-91 with 3:04 to play. Durant added a driving layup to push the lead to three but OKC couldn’t score again in the final 21⁄2 minutes. Bryant hit an 18-foot jumper from the left side to get Los Angeles within one. The Lakers delivered the knockout punch on their fifth chance. Los Angeles advances to face the winner of the DenverUtah series.



West Rowan junior defensive back Domonique Noble (20) already has received 13 offers from Division I programs.

Recruiting hotbed Major college programs finding their way to Rowan County any of the sportswriters and sportscasters who come to NSSA Weekend always say they love visiting Salisbury because they get out of the big city and enjoy a little small town atmosphere. But believe this. Rowan County may be small, but it is not small time. At least, not when it comes to football recruiting. RONNIE West Rowan High GALLAGHER School coach Scott Young remembers a basketball game a couple of months ago. Standing on the baseline were football coaches from Arkansas, Penn State and Virginia.


“It was really neat,” Young recalled. There they were, coaches who are used to venues holding 80,000 fans, standing in a little gym tucked out by the cornfield on a backroad, packed to the gills with screaming fans. They wanted the football players to see them, but it was obvious, Young said, they YOUNG were enjoying the atmosphere. “Usually, in the past, coaches didn’t come down here much,” Young said. “The Carolinas have become a hotbed for recruiting.” Especially here. It helps that Young’s team has won two straight

state championships and 30 straight games heading into the fall. It helps that two of his players, K.P. Parks and Chris Smith, signed with Virginia and Arkansas, respectively, in February. While watching film of those two, coaches noticed junior defensive back Domonique Noble, a 6-foot-2, 185-pounder who has everything PARKS big-time colleges want — length. “Length — that’s the new code word,” Young said. “That’s height, long limbs, good reach.” And recruiters are reaching out.


Timing right for Junior to drive ‘3’ BY HANK KURZ JR. Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. — Dale Earnhardt Jr. knows some fans are upset about his plan to drive a replica of his father’s famous No. 3 car at Daytona in July, but he thinks it is a fitting way to honor the seven-time champion’s NASCAR Hall of Fame induction. “I think everybody knows I’m pretty careful about all that kind of stuff,” he said Friday at Richmond International Raceway. “It just seems like a reasonable opportunity and it seemed like, if there is a time to ever do it, this is one of those times.” Earnhardt announced his plan Thursday to drive the Wrangler car in the Nationwide Series race at Daytona.

The announcement came on what would have been his father’s 59th birthday. Dale Earnhardt died in a crash in the season-opening Daytona 500 in 2001. Earnhardt is one of five members of the first class EARNHARDT JR. of inductees into the hall of fame, joining NASCAR founder Bill France Sr., Bill France Jr., who spent 30 years running the top series, Richard Petty, the only other seven-time champion, and driver Junior Johnson. The induction ceremony will be held May 23.

Hawks force Game 7 with Milwaukee Associated Press

MILWAUKEE — Jamal Crawford broke out of a slump with 24 points, Joe Johnson added 22 points and the Atlanta Hawks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 83-69 on Friday to force a seventh game in the first-round series. Game 7 is Sunday in Atlanta. Carlos Delfino scored 20 for the Bucks, who were outscored 29-11 in the third quarter. CAVALIERS CLEVELAND — LeBron James was voted the league’s

MVP for the second straight year, a person familiar with the announcement told The AP. Cleveland and Boston open their Eastern Conference semifinal series tonight. BOBCATS CHARLOTTE — Larry Brown is being pulled in different directions as he weighs whether to return for a third season as coach of the Charlotte Bobcats. “I’ve got a 13-year-old daughter and a 15-year-old son and the time I’m away from them I can’t get that back,” Brown said. “I’ll

be 70 (in September). I don’t feel that way unless I look in the mirror, but I’ve got to go home and talk to my wife because I love her and I love my kids.” Brown repeated that he wouldn’t coach for anyone other than Bobcats owner Michael Jordan. “I don’t want this to drag on,” Brown said. “But I think the worst thing you can do is make a decision right after the playoffs. But I still want to coach and I told that to Michael, that I don’t want to coach for anyone else.”

Favre throws wrinkle into waiting game Associated Press

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Brett Favre issued a statement on his website Friday saying that his left ankle is still hurting and will require surgery if he wants to return for Minnesota. But he said the injury “is not debilitating” and he’s come through far worse in a 19-year career built on playing through pain. “I don’t believe major surgery on the ankle would be required for me to return in 2010,” Favre wrote. “I’ve consulted with Dr. (James) Andrews on the phone, and a relatively minor procedure could be done to improve the dexterity of the ankle and to relieve the pain. I’ve put up with pain worse than this in my career, and I didn’t want anyone to assume that the possibility of surgery was the sole factor that would determine whether I return or not.”  RENTON, Wash. — Seahawks receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh is recuperating from hernia surgery, and Deion Branch just had his third knee surgery in a little over two years.  DENVER — A gang member convicted of killing Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams in a drive-by shooting was sentenced to life in prison plus 1,152 years after family

KENTUCKY DERBY LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The favorite was pulled at the start of the week. Heavy thunderstorms in the forecast could turn the dirt strip at Churchill Downs into something resembling peanut butter. A year after Mine That Bird won at 50-1 odds by hugging the rail in the slop, the Kentucky Derby is setting up for another wild finish today. A full field of 20 3-year-olds is poised to run 11⁄4 miles for a $1.4 million prize. Lookin At Lucky is the 3-1 morning-line choice, with Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert seeking his fourth victory. He inherited the role of favorite after trainer Todd Pletcher

CLAUSEN FROM 1B Matt Moore was immediately named the starter. Then Moore watched the Panthers draft not only Clausen, but also former Cincinnati QB Tony Pike in the sixth round. “I don’t know if there’s any more room in the quarterback room,” Moore joked, “but good guys. Excited to have them here and ready to work with them.” Moore insisted he’s not worried about his hold on the No. 1 job. While he’s taking the snaps with the first team now, Fox signaled the position is up for grabs. Moore has only eight career NFL starts — but the other three QBs on the roster have none. “Right now he’s the No. 1 quarterback,” Fox said of Moore. “Those guys will decide that, not me. I felt real comfortable with Matt at the end of last season. I thought he showed improvement in both seasons he’s had an opportunity to play.

withdrew Eskendereya because of a swollen leg. Pletcher, who is 0 for 24 in the Derby, will still saddle four horses but none is as highly regarded. The second choice is Sidney’s Candy at 5-1, followed by three others at 10-1 — Awesome Act, Ice Box and Pletcher’s Devil May Care. Devil May Care is trying to become the fourth filly to win the Derby. She was entered after regular rider John Velazquez became available when Eskendereya withdrew.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The NCAA passed a rule allowing a university to send only two coaches to a high school on the same day during an evaluation period, when assistants are allowed one visit to assess a prospect’s athletic ability and a second to evaluate academics.

We’ll see where that takes us.” Fox said Clausen was “swimming” as he learned the offense Friday, even though he had a head start by working in the same pro-style system at Notre Dame under Fox’s friend Charlie Weis. Smith said it was too early to have an impression of Clausen. Soon, though, No. 2 will get a chance to prove he’s better than No. 48. “I think my accuracy is a big strength of mine,” Clausen said. “Being a durable quarterback, playing when I’m hurt. Being a team leader and bringing teams back in the fourth quarter.” 

NOTES: Fox didn’t seem overly concerned that cornerback Richard Marshall was absent. Upset with his contract situation, the restricted free agent still hasn’t signed his one-year, $1.759 million tender. ... LB Thomas Davis, another restricted free agent, practiced for the first time since his season-ending knee injury on Nov. 8. ... Former Appalachian State QB Armanti Edwards drew plenty of attention working as a WR and PR. “I’ve got a lot to learn and lot to improve on,” he said.

Mayfair had seven birdies and needed only 26 putts for the second straight day. 

TIGER NUMBERS: Tiger Woods missing the cut — by eight shots — produced plenty of rarities. Woods’ 43 on the back nine matched the worst of his career. “That’s surprising,” said Anthony Kim, who was tied for 15th, five shots back. “He’s the best player in the world, still. He’s had such a long time off. I’m sure he’s disappointed, but he’ll be back.” 

SURPRISING MULROY: Even die-hard PGA Tour fans probably did a doubletake seeing Garth Mulroy atop the leaderboard at midday Friday. The rookie from South Africa hadn’t made the cut in seven previous starts and was playing this week on a sponsor’s exemption. Yet after an opening-round 69, there he was at 7 under after an eagle at the 10th. Mulroy then had six straight pars before putting two balls into the water at the par-3 17th. A triple bogey left him with a 71, but he’s tied for ninth at 4-under. Mulroy finished 14th on the Nationwide Tour money list in 2009, which included a victory at the South Georgia Classic. He’s also spent time on the E-Golf Tour, formerly the Tarheel Tour.


fans were more interested in Woods as a golfer than anything to do with his personal life. He just didn’t give them much to cheer. And he won’t be around for the weekend. “You have to let it go,” Woods said. “It’s like baseball — you go 0-for-4 two days in a row like I did, you’ve got a whole new tournament next week, which is great.” It was the first time Woods missed a cut since the British Open last summer at Turnberry and the first time at a regular PGA Tour event since the Disney Classic at the end of the 2005 season. “Give this guy a chance, though. He’ll bounce back,” Mayfair said. “We all know that. Everyone on tour knows that. By him missing a few cuts here and there, it’s just going to make him come back

MONDAY MAYFAIR: Billy Mayfair last won in 1998 and finished a career-worst 157th on the money list last year. He had to scramble just to make it in time for the Monday qualifier for Quail Hollow. And after two rounds he’s alone in the lead. Mayfair followed his 65 on Monday that put him in the field with consecutive 68s that left him at 8-under and one shot ahead of Angel Cabrera. “A lot of guys will say when they had to Monday qualify a long time ago before this was an all-exempt tour, some of the best weeks they had was when they did Monday qualify,” Mayfair said. “They were hot coming in and they just kind of kept rolling the wave. That’s what I’m going to try to do.” The 43-year-old Mayfair’s eventful stretch began when he missed his flight to Charlotte on Sunday night after finishing 43rd in New Orleans. His wife, Tami, booked them on a 6 a.m. flight Monday that required a 3 a.m. wakeup call. After connecting through Atlanta, Mayfair arrived in Charlotte at about noon and had a 12:45 tee time. Mayfair is convinced the momentum from his solid round under the circumstances carried over to the tournament. “Any time you can go out and shoot 65, which I think is my lowest round this year, it gives you confidence,” he said. “You can hit the ball as good as you want and putt as good as you want, but if you’re not shooting the numbers, the confidence isn’t there. “I’m starting to shoot the numbers.”




“He’s obviously got things in his mind other than what’s going between the ropes right now,” said British Open champion Stewart Cink, who played with Woods. “You’ve got to learn how to balance what’s going on in your life with your golf. And if you’re not in a great place mentally, then it sometimes shows up out there.” This was Woods’ first time playing at a regular PGA Tour event with public ticket sales, and the crowd was gracious as ever with a few exceptions. Two fans, including a woman, held thumbs-down as Woods walked off the 15th green. Police also escorted away a fan who apparently heckled Woods as he left the 17th green. A friend of the fan, who declined to give his name, said the fan only said, “No red shirt for you on Sunday.” Otherwise, it was clear over the last two days the

CHARLOTTE — Masters champion Phil Mickelson is nearly over his stomach ailment — perhaps just in time to win his second straight tournament. Long before Tiger Woods’ Friday afternoon meltdown left him with only his sixth missed cut in his professional career, Mickelson put together a bogey-free 4-under 68 that left him two shots behind leader Billy Mayfair at the halfway point of the Quail Hollow Championship. Not bad for somebody who was so ill vomiting two days earlier that he had had to withdraw from the pro-am in his first event since Augusta. “One more day of rest after we get done here, and I should be 100 percent for the weekend,” Mickelson said. After acknowledging he tired Thursday when he finished with consecutive bogeys, Lefty got off to a quick start early Friday on the difficult back nine. He hit a 5-iron to 8 feet for an eagle at the par-5 15th, then birdied the waterprotected 17th. “It’s a bonus because I’m not trying to make 2 on 17. It’s one of those holes like 17 at TPC Sawgrass,” Mickelson said. “You just want a 3 and move on. Today the tee was up, not too much wind, the green was soft, and I ended up hitting a good shot that slightly pushed by the hole. I ended up having a 3-footer for birdie.” Mickelson finished his round with 10 consecutive pars, but it leaves him in good shape in an event where he hasn’t won, but has four top-10 finishes. “This is a wonderful, fun golf course to play,” Mickelson said. “The way the course is set up right now is perfect, so I hope that it doesn’t vary too much.”

Phil Mickelson his from a sand trap on the 14th hole.

Woods couldn’t make a putt, and he didn’t make any excuses about whether his private life is affecting his golf. “Every day I do media, I get asked it, so it doesn’t go away,” he said. “Even when I’m at home paparazzi still follow us, helicopters still hover around. Does it test you? Yes, of course it does. Is that any excuse? No, because I’m out there and I have the same opportunity as everybody else here in this field to shoot a good number. And I didn’t do it.” Mayfair birdied his last hole for a 4-under 68 that gave him the halfway lead at 8-under 136. He led by one shot over two-time major champion Angel Cabrera, who had a 67 while playing the last two days with Woods. J.P. Hayes matched the course record at Quail Hollow with a 64 and was in the group at 138 with Masters champion Phil Mickelson (68), Pebble Beach winner Dustin Johnson (65) and Paul Goydos (70). There were good scores Friday. Just not by the world’s No. 1 player. Instead of making birdies, he was making consecutive double bogeys — a flop shot that ran through the green and into the water on the 14th, then a four-putt from 30 feet on the next hole, the last three putts from inside 4 feet. Woods only hit two fairways, none after the fourth hole.

even stronger. I don’t think anyone out here is worried about Tiger, and I’m sure Tiger is not worried about it right now, either.” One shot over the projected cut going to the back nine, Woods bogeyed the next three holes before it really turned ugly. He hit driver on the 329-yard 14th hole well to the right on a hill, leaving him a downhill shot to a green sloping toward the water. His flop shot came out too hot, bounded across the green and went into the water for a double bogey. He didn’t take much time over shots after that, appearing to give up on a most forgettable round. “I didn’t have much,” Woods said. “At that point in time, it was pretty much out of reach, and I was just trying to stay out of Angel’s way. He’s the one who’s leading the golf tournament.” Of the six times Woods has missed the cut, the 17-shot gap between him and the leader was the largest by three shots. Woods holds the PGA Tour record for 142 consecutive tournaments making the cut, which ended at the 2005 Byron Nelson Classic. He also missed the cut at the 1997 Canadian Open and the 2006 U.S. Open. But he never looked as bad as he did Friday in Charlotte. “It does bother me, no doubt,” Woods said. “But at least I get the weekend to watch and see how it’s done, how real players play golf. And hopefully, I can piece it together for next week and be ready to go.”





4B • SATURDAY, MAY 1, 2010





East’s Will Sapp slides in ahead of a tag by South catcher Eric Tyler in the fifth inning.


South’s Preston Penninger shares a laugh with Blake Houston (5) and other teammates following Penninger’s homer.

“Johnson and Gobbel were amazing,” East coach Brian Hightower said. “You can’t do it any better than they did.” South lefty Dylan Walker was an army of one against East’s numerous options. He only allowed two earned runs, but he exited after eight innings with a no-decision. NPC champ East (21-4, 11-1) was playing only for bragging rights, but it was an intense struggle that saw the Mustangs rally twice. East’s Noah Holmes went to the plate five times and stroked five bullets. He had three hits and two lineouts. His biggest swing was a ninthinning double that set up the decisive runs. “I thought Dylan pitched great all night, but I was seeing it and getting the bat on it pretty good,” Holmes said. “It was a game we definitely needed to win. It really helps us get ready for the tough games in the playoffs.” South (15-8, 7-5) had a seven-game winning streak snapped and finished in a three-way tie for third place with Carson and West Rowan (an 11-10 winner against North Iredell). League officials will meet today to sort everything out, but South should be the No. 4 seed entering the tournament. Carson holds the upper hand in the three-way deadlock by virtue of its sweep of West Rowan. East scored in the first on Holmes’ RBI single, but South answered with three against East starter Preston Troutman. That three-run first began with a sun-aided single by Maverick Miles past Holmes, East’s third baseman. “Never saw it,” said Holmes, who put on sunglasses after the play. “The sun was right on the batter’s hands.” Eric Tyler and Jacob Dietz had RBI singles, and Preston Penninger walked with the bases loaded to force in a run. With South leading 4-1 in the third, a three-run inning for East was triggered when Penninger, the first baseman, fielded a grounder wide of the bag and struck baserunner Troutman with his throw to second for an attempted forceout. Penninger made amends by winning the battle of Prestons in the bottom of the third. His second homer of the season snapped the 4-4 deadlock and was a no-doubter to center field. “Fastball down the middle and I didn’t miss it,” Penninger said. Troutman went 3-for-4 at the plate with three runs, but that pitch to Penninger ended his night on the mound. South scratched an unearned run off Johnson in the


DYLAN WALKER third to stretch its lead to 6-4, but the southpaw mowed down the Raiders 1-2-3 in the fourth and fifth. East got a run back in the fifth when Will Sapp scored on an error and forced a 6-6 tie in the sixth on Justin Morris’ double and Troutman’s RBI single. That’s when the drama really started. East crushed two balls in the seventh, but South center fielder Blake Houston went to the wall to catch a blast by Holmes and right fielder Tyler Kowalczyk ran down a screaming shot near the line off the bat of Nathan FULBRIGHT Fulbright. “Fulbright hammered it and he was 0-fer,” Hightower said. “South’s outfield made some plays. It was a typical great ballgame between two Rowan teams.” South put two on against Gobbel in the eighth, but Houston’s lineout to left ended the inning Daniel Mullis replaced Walker for the ninth. Troutman’s single and Sapp’s sacrifice bunt began the inning. Then Holmes pounded one to center. Troutman had seen Houston catch everything, so he retreated to second to tag up. He couldn’t score when the ball fell at the fence. Troutman did score, though, on a passed ball. When Tyler, the catcher, threw wildly toward Mullis covering the plate, Holmes also came around. Gobbel walked the leadoff man in the South ninth, but he retired the next three. “We can’t point at any one thing for losing this ballgame because we had so many opportunities to beat a great team,” South coach Thad Chrismon said. “It’s a tough one to lose because we really put our hearts in it. We battled all night long.”

FROM 8B “That first home run — I called for a high, outside fastball, and that’s what he threw. But the guy just got the bat around and drove it.” Cody Johnson’s two-run homer to left-center got the party started for the guests. Before the first inning was over it was 3-0, courtesy of John Spivey’s line drive triple to the right-center gap and Rider Maness’ RBI groundout. “Our success in this conference is based on scoring runs and making plays,” North Moore coach Brandon Reynolds said. “We don’t have pitchers who are gonna mow people down, so we have to hit the ball to win.” Spivey, who went 3-for-4 with two RBIs, provided more April fuel in the third when he yanked a first-pitch fastball from Smith into the left-field

woods for a leadoff homer. “Whenever Spivey’s ahead in the count, I love our chances,” Reynolds said. “He hits it hard all the time.” North Rowan drew a mental blank when it batted out of order in the last of the second inning. Instead of Smith batting in the No. 6 spot, teammate Mason Jennings, penciled in at No. 7, stepped up and punched a single to center. North Moore never caught on and the mistake proved inconsequential. “There was some kind of mix-up before the game,” Linder reported. “I ended up changing some things around at the last minute. I guess we got confused.” Reynolds didn’t mind. “I think it’s what you’d call an honest mistake,” he said. “I wasn’t gonna be a jerk about it. We’d already locked up second place, we were winning 3-0, so it wasn’t a big deal to us.” By the sixth inning it was 8-0 thanks to a couple of in-

field hits, Johnson’s bloop single to right and Spivey’s runscoring double that eluded Jennings in left field. The Cavs got on the board when senior designated hitter Jeff N e l s o n crushed a 2-2 pitch from Maness for his second home run in two games. NELSON “He threw me a fastball right over the middle,” Nelson said. “I really got hold of it.” And though NR added three unearned runs, it walked away with a sour taste in its mouth. “Bad decisions, bad errors,” Nelson said. “It doesn’t feel good to lose this game.” 

NOTES: Matt Mauldin finished the regular season with 25 RBIs and a .482 batting average.

GALLAGHER FROM 1B After North Carolina offered Noble on Wednesday, it brought his number of offers from big-time, Division I schools to 13. That’s impressive. “He is being recruited more than any Rowan County kid I can remember,” Young said. Which is saying something because Parks, an AllAmerican at running back, finished his career with the third-best rushing total in U.S. history. It’s a good time for recruiters to be in Rowan County. The junior class is stocked with potential Division I talent. Sometimes, it takes recruits like Parks and Smith, a defensive end, to get the ball rolling. Recruiters come here and realize what’s at nearby schools. Then, there are 40 times. Salisbury junior running back Romar Morris ran an electronically timed 4.3 in a Nike combine. “Word got out about Romar’s 40, and there are guys all over him,” Young said. “That opens a lot of people’s eyes. That’s something you can’t coach.” Those eyes are coming from across the country. Before the 40, Morris would have been elated to get interest from the ACC’s four Tobacco Road schools or East Carolina. But he is being coveted by the likes of West Virginia, Arkansas and Maryland. Utah has even offered. “It’s going to keep coming,” said Salisbury coach Joe Pinyan, whose wishbone offense made Morris a 1,000yard rusher and took the Hornets one step from a state title game. Morris’ success is getting other Hornets, such as defensive back Darien Rankin, noticed. “Once you produce some guys, things change,” Pinyan said. Coaches have their favorite schools. In the past, East Carolina signed Salisbury’s Matt Butler and Scotty Robinson. Both ended up in NFL camps, Butler, an offensive lineman, with Detroit, and Robinson, a defensive end, currently in Cleveland training with the Browns as a free-agent pickup. “ECU finds our kids,” Pinyan said. “You find our kids and we’re going to take care of you. We’re going to roll out the red carpet.”

FROM 8B However, Webb answered with a big strikeout and then got leadoff batter Trey Gibson on a routine flyout to center. “I was thinking for D.J. to get a strikeout and a popup and that’s what he did,” Wright joked. “I thought they were going to try and squeeze with (Gibson), but they didn’t and we found a way to get it done.” The Falcons got it done early with the bats. North starter Nick Burwell lasted just 11⁄3 innings after giving up seven runs on nine hits. West scored six times on six hits in the first. Tyler King led off with a double, moved to third on an error and scored on a sacrifice fly by Thomas Hester. After Untz singled and Jonie Bautista walked, Chandler Jones hit a threerun homer over the fence in center. Back-to-back doubles by Webb and Zack Simpson, a single by Hunter Teeter and another sacrifice fly by Garczynski accounted for two more runs. “Our order one through nine has been swinging the bats really well,” Wright said. “We expect to hit. We hit every day. We decided that that’s what we’re going to do.” Hester led off the second with an infield single and scored on a double by Untz, who was thrown out trying to stretch it into a triple — one of five West runners to be thrown out on the bases in the game. Colby Gregory came in for Burwell, hit Jones with his second pitch and the Falcons followed with three straight hits of their own. Webb singled, Simpson drove in two with his second double and Teeter added an RBI single putting West up by 10 and looking ahead to a short night. The Falcons, though, couldn’t dent North’s third pitcher, Clint Jordan. He limited West to just two hits over the last four frames. “Lots of times when you score early you get lazy offensively and that’s what we did,” Wright said. “We didn’t feel that sense of urgency or that desire to be successful offensively through the middle innings and it showed. But 14 hits is 14 hits whether you get them in the first two innings or you



get them in seven innings.” North began chipping away against West starter Ethan Marsh, scoring an unearned run in the third and three more in the fourth, highlighted by a two-run homer by Burwell. It was still 10-4 in the sixth before the Raiders got four hits and three runs against reliever Matt Miller. A throwing error by Garczynski that would’ve ended the inning allowed the last two to score. “He’s made some good plays for us, but he’s 15-years old so he’s gonna struggle,” Wright said. “But he’s got to go back out there on Monday and play again.” After Webb came on to get a strikeout with runners on first and third to end the inning, the unlikely game-winner for West came when Bautista was hit by pitch and courtesy runner Chris Neal moved to second on a wild pitch and scored on an RBI single by Jones. Jones, Untz, Webb, Simpson and Teeter each finished with two hits. Jones drove in four runs, while Simpson had two RBIs and two runs scored. “We came in here to win. That puts us at 13-11 for the regular season and with where we came from, we’ll take it and get ready for Monday,” Wright said. Because West was swept by Carson, it loses out in the tiebreaker, will be the No. 5 seed for next week’s NPC tournament and need to win it to earn a playoff spot. The Falcons are expected to travel to South in the first round on Monday. “We’ve shown glimpses of playing well enough lately to win the conference tournament,” Wright said. “There’s a lot of teams that can win that thing, not just East Rowan. “If we play defense for three days next week we’ve got a chance to win the thing.”

County coaches say one of the first questions a Division I recruiter asks is, “Who else has offered him?” “Why does that matter?” Pinyan asks back. It matters because recruiting is big business. No one wants to make the wrong choice. And high school coaches don’t want them to. “The worst thing you can have happen is for a kid to go somewhere and not be what you told the coach he is,” Young said. “Then, you burn a bridge down.” Recruits like Noble and Morris need to lean on their coaches. Noble lives in Cleveland — no, not the big one, but the small town in western Rowan County. To have guys walk in constantly with those famous logos on their

ATLANTA — The Atlanta Braves turned to their youngest stars to end their longest losing streak in four years. Jason Heyward hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer and Tommy Hanson pitched eight innings to help the Braves end their nine-game losing streak by beating the Houston Astros 4-2 on Friday. Heyward homered for the second consecutive night to break a 2-all tie and Nate McLouth also went deep against Brett Myers (1-2). The 23-year-old Hanson (2-2) gave up two runs in the second inning and then retired 20 of his last 21 batters. He allowed four hits and struck out seven without a walk. “Two young guys really came through,” said Braves manager Bobby Cox. Billy Wagner pitched a hitless the ninth for his second save. He walked Pedro Feliz with one out before Carlos Lee hit into a double play. The Braves snapped their longest losing streak since dropping 10 straight from June 11-22, 2006. This season’s streak included an 0-7 road trip, the Braves’ first winless trip of at least seven games since 1949, when the franchise was based in Boston. Mets 9, Phillies 1 PHILADELPHIA — Rod Barajas homered twice, Jonathon Niese (1-1) pitched seven impressive innings and New York won its eighth straight. David Wright and Jeff Francoeur also homered for the Mets, riding their longest winning streak since a 10-game run in July 2008. Nationals 7, Marlins 1 MIAMI — Ryan Zimmerman homered twice and the Washington Nationals won their third straight game. It was Zimmerman’s first start since April 21 due to a hamstring injury, and he quickly made up for lost time, connecting both times on a full count against starter Ricky Nolasco. Cubs 11, Diamondbacks 5 CHICAGO — Alfonso Soriano hit a three-run homer and the Chicago Cubs connected for four in all while rallying to beat Arizona. Kosuke Fukudome, Geovany Soto and Marlon Byrd added solo shots. The big blow was Soriano’s three-run drive off Rodrigo Lopez (1-1), capping a fourrun sixth that put Chicago ahead 6-4 and made a winner of Randy Wells (3-0). AMERICAN LEAGUE Royals 3, Rays 2 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — An error by reliever Randy Choate helped Kansas City score twice in the ninth inning, and the Royals held on to beat the first-place Rays. Evan Longoria nearly won it for the Rays in the bottom of the ninth, but his long drive to left with two on was caught at the wall for a sacrifice fly,

and Joakim Soria retired B.J. Upton on a fly ball for his sixth save. Yankees 6, White Sox 4 NEW YORK — Derek Jeter hit a tiebreaking two-run triple in the seventh inning and drove in four runs. Jeter also hit a tying, tworun homer in the fifth for New York, which opened a sixgame homestand with its third consecutive win. The All-Star shortstop went 3 for 4 and is batting .538 (7 for 13) in his last three games. Paul Konerko set a White Sox record with his major league-best 11th homer in April and Gordon Beckham added two hits as Chicago lost for the 12th time in its last 14 games in New York. Tigers 10, Angels 6 DETROIT — Scott Sizemore and Brennan Boesch hit their first career homers in an eight-run fourth inning. Sizemore’s homer, which came one pitch after Gerald Laird’s first of the season, tied the game at four. Miguel Cabrera added an RBI single later in the inning before Boesch’s grand slam to center field. A third Tigers rookie, Austin Jackson, went 5 for 5, making him the first Tigers rookie with five hits in a game since the player he replaced, Curtis Granderson, did it on Sept. 18, 2005. Twins 9, Indians 3 CLEVELAND — Justin

Morneau made an instant impact in his return to the Minnesota lineup, launching a two-run homer after missing two games with a stiff back. The Twins said the injury was unrelated to the stress fracture that kept him out of the final 20 games last season and the playoffs. Blue Jays 10, Athletics 2 TORONTO — Alex Gonzalez hit two home runs and Vernon Wells also connected. Gonzalez hit a three-run homer in the second inning and led off the sixth with a drive down the left-field line. It was the eighth multihomer game of his career. Orioles 5, Red Sox 4 (10) BALTIMORE — Adam Jones doubled and scored on a two-out single by Miguel Tejada in the 10th inning for Baltimore. Tejada had three RBIs, including a tying homer in the eighth after Baltimore blew a 3-1 lead. The win improved the Orioles’ home record to 2-8 and ended a seven-game skid against Boston at Camden Yards. The defeat left Boston with its first losing April (11-12) since 1996. Matt Albers (1-3) pitched a perfect 10th for the Orioles, whose 5-18 record is still the worst in the majors. Ramon Ramirez (0-1) took the loss after a solid start by John Lackey.

Teammates on good terms Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. — Jeff Gordon is done being angry at teammate Jimmie Johnson for two consecutive run-ins on the race track. Gordon didn’t like the way Johnson raced him two weeks ago at Texas and uncharacteristically expressed anger in his teammate following last week’s race at Talladega. Johnson admittedly made a mistake late in the race that contributed to Gordon wrecking. Team owner Rick Hendrick moderated a conference call this week between the pair of four-time champions, and Gordon said Friday that everything is fine. “It’s amazing what happens when you get Mr. H involved,” Gordon said before qualifying at Richmond. “The three of us had a good conversation. I think we all recognize what contributed to everything that happened at Texas, as well as Talladega. We feel like the most important stuff is all the communication we have in the week and at the race track — what that contributes to our success as a group is too important to let a rivalry escalate out of control. “It’s OK to have rivalries, we understand that, and to be competitive. We are very competitive. All that’s good, and healthy, and that’s what we talked about. He pleaded his case, and I pleaded mine, and we both said, ‘Yep, it’s all good,’ and we moved on.” Gordon has raced with increased intensity this season and come close to Victory

let anything else fester this thing along and we’ll be fine.” In other Hendrick news, the team locked crew chiefs Chad Knaus (Johnson) and Alan Gustafson (currently with Mark Martin) into long-term contract extensions Friday. Crew chief Steve Letarte GORDON JOHNSON (Gordon) said he’s in discussion to have his contract Lane at least three times. But extended, too. while he’s still winless this year, Johnson has three victories — including one at the Las Vegas race Gordon dominated. Gordon said Friday he doesn’t regret criticizing Johnson. “But it is a fine line when it is your teammate, as well as your friend, and when you look at the whole organization, there’s a fine line between being emotional and it affecting the day-to-day operations,” Gordon said. “I had to look at the bigger picture, and I think Jimmie did as well. I think that is where Rick is so good in allowing us to recognize those things.” Johnson said the notion of 2955 Artz Road • Faith, NC a potential feud has been Hours: Mon., Tues., Thurs., & Fri. 9-5 blown out of proportion.

RICHMOND, Va. — Kyle Busch won the pole for tonight’s NASCAR race at Richmond International Raceway with a fast lap at 127.077 mph. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver turned the lap as the 19th of 47 cars attempting to qualify, easily beating David Reutimann (126.618) for the top spot. The pole, just the sixth Busch has earned in 196 starts in NASCAR’s premier series, gave him his choice of pit stalls as he defends his victory in this race a year ago. “It’s nice to sit on the pole every once in a while,” Busch said of his first pole position since March 2009 in Las Vegas. “I only get the opportunity maybe once a year.”

Busch, who swept both races here a year ago, is seeking his first Sprint Cup Series victory since last BUSCH August at Bristol. He has a 21-race winless streak. “We’ve had some opportunities where we should have won races,” he said. “We’ve also had opportunities where we should have run 15th or 18th and we finished top 10.” Hendrick Motorsports teammates Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon will start in the second row. They will be followed by Ryan Newman, Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick and Jamie McMurray.

RICHMOND, Va. — Brad Keselowski raced to his second straight NASCAR Nationwide Series victory, dominating all night and then rallying from fourth in a green-whitechecker finish Friday at Richmond International Raceway. Keselowski began rebuilding his series points lead, cut to 10 points after he won at Talladega last week and then failed post-race inspection and was docked 50 points. The victory gave Keselowski a 59-point advantage over Kevin Harvick. Keselowski, an eight-time winner in his Nationwide career, was on pace to lead the last 192 laps, but pitted as the leader under caution with five laps to go, handing Kyle Busch the lead. But Keselowski reasserted his dominance by powering through the field on new

tires to pass Busch and teammate Justin Allgaier, who had also stayed out, to win by 0.261 seconds. “We made the right moves today,” Keselowski said. “We had the car to beat.” Greg Biffle rallied from fifth on the restart to finish second. Jamie McMurray was third, followed by Busch and Carl Edwards. Allgaier was hurt by his late strategy, falling to 15th. Biffle, who also pitted before the last dash, had no chance to slow Keselowski. “The 22 was coming like gangbusters. I held him off as long as I could,” Biffle said. Earlier, Keselowski was leading by more than 3.5 seconds when a crash by Jason Leffler brought out a caution and gave Busch an opportunity to make amends for an earlier pit error that dropped him from second to sixth. This time, he went into the pits fourth and came out second.

East Rowan’s Parker Gobbel came on in relief and limited South Rowan to one hit in four scoreless innings. Gobbel struck out six batters and improved to 7-0 on the season.

NPC nail-biter Gobbel keeps ‘going’ for East BY MIKE LONDON


Preston Penninger hit a solo home run in the third inning for South.

LANDIS — East Rowan reliever Parker E. Rowan 8 Gobbel isn’t a S. Rowan 6 stat freak. “I guess I got a save or a win or whatever you want to call it,” Gobbel exclaimed after an extra-inning NPC contest with South Rowan on Friday. Credit Gobbel with one odd stat — the first strikeout this season of South slugger Maverick Miles.

Battle of Norths BY DAVID SHAW SPENCER — It took all of five pitches for North Moore to show N. Moore 8 North Rowan who was boss N. Rowan 4 Friday night. By that early juncture the visiting Mustangs had a two-run lead and were well on their way to an 8-4 YVC victory in the regular-season finale for both teams. “They just came out and got us,” North Rowan coach Rob Linder said after the Cavs (10-13, 7-9) settled into the bottom half of the league standings. “But it was still early. I figured we’d get a couple hits and score a few LINDER runs, even though the bats were flat tonight.” He figured right. NR scored four times — but not until the bottom of the sixth inning,

just been moved to the relief role, but it’s a role I’m used to from Legion ball.” East lefty reliever Will Johnson was JOHNSON just as important. In one stretch, Johnson and Gobbel combined to sit down 16 straight South batters, nine of them on strikes.

Gobbel got him on a breaking ball in the sixth. Also credit Gobbel with the win in East’s 8-6 victory over the Raiders that reGOBBEL quired nine innings. The righthander went the last four, and he improved his record to 7-0 when East scored two in the ninth on a passed ball and an error. “I just kept going and going and going,” Gobbel said. “I’ve

when North Moore (16-7, 12-4) played defense like the ‘62 Mets. By then it was simply too little, too late. “We’d been playing well before this,” reliever Dakota Brown said after collecting eight strikeouts in 42⁄3 innings. “I really don’t know what got into us. Sometimes that’s how it goes.” North Rowan spent the evening drifting in and out of focus. Losing pitcher Jake Smith, a right-handed sophomore, allowed a pair of home runs and two other extra-base hits before being spelled in the third inning. “He was hitting his MUNDAY spots,” said catcher Kyle Munday, one of two players recognized on senior night in Spencer. “They just did a good job of getting the barrel on the ball.



MOUNT ULLA — When W e s t W. Rowan 11 Rowan exN. Iredell 10 ploded out to a 10-0 lead over winless North Iredell after two innings nobody in their right mind would’ve believed that a single run the Falcons would later score in the sixth would be the winning one. But somehow that ended up being the case as an easy as expected mercy-rule win instead turned into a hold on for dear life 11-10 thriller in Friday night’s regular-season finale. The victory earned West (13-11, 7-5) a tie for third in the NPC with Carson and South Rowan, but it wasn’t solidified until Falcons’ reliev-



er D.J. Webb recorded the final two outs with runners on second and third in the top of the seventh. “The people got there money’s worth on senior night to see that,” West coach David Wright said after exhaling. “I’ll give it to (North). It’s awful hard for a team to play when you’re 0-for the century in the league. They’ve had a long season and they battled, but we found a way to win. We’ll take it.”

West pounded North’s first two pitchers for 10 runs on 12 hits in the first two frames, but the bats cooled off after that, the Raiders (0-12, 0-17) started hitting and the Falcons’ defense helped out with five errors. Two of those were committed by freshman shortstop Taylor Garczynski on back-toback groundballs in the seventh, and the latter allowed a run to score to make it 11-8. After a deep flyout to center, another run scored on Jacob Speight’s grounder just out of the reach of diving second baseman Hayden Untz in shallow right field. Drew Sharpe followed with an RBI single to center to make it 11-10, and Speight stole third and Sharpe stole second on separate pitches.

Children sing during the Watoto concert at Salisbury High School’s auditorium Thursday. Watoto is a Christian children’s ministry that aids orphaned children in the African country of Uganda. The Children’s Choir, which travels worldwide to performs songs and dance with a message, visited Salisbury through a sponsorship provided by World Hope Worship Center.

Songs of love and hope Watoto children travel the world sharing the Christian message through music BY HUGH FISHER

They’ve seen a lot of hardship in their young lives — the loss of parents, the lack of basic necessities, the ravages of HIV and AIDS in their home, the African nation of Uganda. But the children of Watoto smile when they take to the stage and begin to sing. The Watoto Children’s Choirs travel the world, sharing a Christian message of love and hope while raising awareness of problems in their homeland. One of these groups — 22 children, with four adult musicians — performed at Salisbury High School on Thursday. In both their native Swahili and English, and to the tune of contemporary music and traditional African drums, the choir sang its message of praise, clapping and dancing with youthful energy. They came to Salisbury as guests of World Hope Worship Center, which has hosted performances by Watoto choirs three times in the last seven years. “It’s always a pleasure to have them,” David Cowger, lead pastor at World Hope, said. “It’s our privilege to be part of this experience, to be able to help them.” The children in these choirs are all being cared for by the Watoto ministry, which selects groups of kids to tour other nations for six-month periods. Their music spreads a Gospel message and gathers support for the ministry, named for the Swahili word for “children.” Founded by pastors Gary and Marilyn

“I think in America we can give as much money as we can give, but awareness is really the big thing.” PAUL SILVAS World Hope youth pastor on spreading the message about the plight in Africa

Skinner, Watoto builds children’s villages with schools and homes, helping some of an estimated 60 million African orphans find new families. In addition to food, clothing and education, those suffering from HIV and AIDS receive life-saving treatment. The ministry also cares for abandoned infants and child soldiers brutalized by rebel insurgents in northern Uganda, where terrorists often capture orphans and force them to fight. “By the time I was 6, both of my parents had passed away,” choir member Julius said from the stage during his testimonial. “Today … instead of working to get enough food to survive, I put my energy into learning at school.” Among the songs was a spirited version of a traditional Ugandan praise song, “Hakuna Mungu” — with a chorus that means, in part, “There is no God like You.” The audience clapped and sang along throughout the 90-minute performance, at one point rising to learn a dance while the children directed them from the stage.

“It’s an amazing experience for them, for every one of us,” director Stephen Banyikiza said. He has been touring with Watoto children’s choirs since 2006. On this tour, he and the choir, along with six other adult chaperones, will visit nine states. “Almost every night we’re in a different city,” Banyikiza said. In each place, members of a church host the chaperones and children, providing them with food and shelter for the night. As Banyikiza spoke, audience member Minnie Byrd of Salisbury was one of many to greet him and the children, welcoming them to Salisbury and saying, “God bless you.” “It just made me feel good all over to see them,” Byrd said. Those ties of Christian love are longlasting — a few moments later, Rachel Levy, 10, came up and hugged Banyikiza. She explained that her family hosted him when Watoto visited their church in Winston-Salem four years ago. Teresa Levy said her family drove down to see him again Thursday. “I know how much they’ve touched our lives,” she said. World Hope youth pastor Paul Silvas said he hopes locals will remember the plight of these and other children in Africa. “I think in America we can give as much money as we can give, but awareness is really the big thing,” Silvas said.

n the book of Romans 12:3 we read, “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” Further reading tells us that there are many members in the body of Christ, but the members do not have the same office, or gift. Yet, because they are all members of the body, they all have a measure of faith. No man can live in the world without it. Things happen to all of us. We are REGINA not given a guarantee at ROGERS birth that assures a life without difficulty. There are no boundaries when it comes to the possibility that something negative will happen to us at one time or another. In fact, most of us will face multiple negative occurrences in our lifetime. However, 1 John 5:4 tells us, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world; and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” We need that measure of faith in order to overcome the obstacles that come our way, no matter what form they take. While the scripture in Romans tells us that every man is dealt a measure of faith, those who do not accept and follow Christ as Lord will lack it. In Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians, (2 Thessalonians 3:1-2) he asks for prayer “that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified… And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.” We don’t have to look far for evidence of the unreasonable and wicked. The TV, magazines and books, movies, music, the Internet and those whose lives are made public provide living proof. At the same time, God’s word also provides living proof regarding the power of our faith. For example, in Matthew 17:20 he tells us that “if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” The mustard seed is the least of all seeds, yet grows into a huge tree. Thus it should be with our faith. Yet, should we be content with just a measure? In the book of John 14:12, Jesus says “… He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works that these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” In chapter 11 of the book of Luke, we read the account of Lazarus’s death. If you know the story, then you know that Jesus called him forth from the tomb. Can we do such with just a measure of faith? Many who call themselves believers don’t think we have the power to do that at all. Maybe one of the reasons we fail to do greater works than Jesus is that we don’t desire the faith we need to move mountains. Instead, we simply settle for the way things are. We just take bottles and bottles of prescription medication for our health conditions. We accept that diagnosis of cancer with fear instead of trusting God to heal us. We complain about all that is wrong with our life as if complaining will make things better. Now, that’s not to say that we might have to endure medication or health problems, financial problems or whatever our trial may be, while we are trusting the Lord for help. Trials and sufferings serve as very effective tools for increasing our faith. The problem is that we limit what God can do when we fail to have the kind of faith He desires. We also give the enemy ground to use against us when we don’t have more than a measure of faith, as we condemn the work of God before it has begun. Ephesians 4:29 reads, “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” When a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, particularly certain types, and if not caught until in the later stages, we often bury them before a treatment is even decided upon. I’ve been on the receiving end of such remarks, being told I was going to die when I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at age 16 — that was 34 years ago. Don’t settle for less than God’s best. His best for us when it comes to the issue of faith is to believe in Him, trust in Him and grow beyond that measure He has given us. If we want to have the authority and power given to us by our God to perform miracles of healing, to deal with evil forces, to win lost souls for the Kingdom of God, then we do need more than a measure. The other option is to be content with less than what God desires for us, which inhibits our spiritual growth and prevents us from accomplishing the work God has purposed for us. Ask Him for exceedingly more than the original measure. Then hang on. Remember, God wants you to move mountains. Regina Rogers lives in Rowan County.

From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind; 14 from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth, 15 he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do. 16 No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength. 17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save. 18 But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, 19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. 20 We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. 21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. 22 May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.

More than 500 people attended a meeting Sunday at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church for an update on efforts to form a new Lutheran denomination, mainly in response to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s decision to allow the blessing of same-sex unions and ordination of people in same-sex relationships. The meeting was sponsored by the North Carolina affiliate of Lutheran CORE (Coalition for Renewal), one of the regional Lutheran “renewal movements” that organized in response to what member congregations see as the national body’s departure from scriptural doctrine. Ryan Schwarz, an investment fund manager who serves as chairman of Lutheran CORE’s Vision and Planning Work Group, told those gathered at St. Paul’s the number of such regional groups has increased from eight to more than 20 since the national body’s Churchwide Assembly in August. Schwartz told the assembly a new Lutheran denomination — the North American Lutheran Church — is expected to be constituted in Columbus, Ohio in August. It will be made up of churches, like St. Paul’s, whose congregations have voted to split from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The new denomination “will be a very lean organization with bishops holding responsibilities of teaching and leadership rather than administration,” a press release said. Partnerships with existing Lutheran and non-Lutheran seminaries will insure a supply of pastors “who have been grounded in traditional, confessional ministry.” Seven former Evangelical Lutheran Church in America synod bishops are currently working with CORE to develop processes for the new denomination “that will maintain a high standard of ministry and procedures for discipline,” the press release said. Schwarz told the people at St. Paul’s the vision for the new North American Lutheran Church is that it will be “Christ centered, mission driven, traditionally grounded and congregationally focused.” In creating a new denomination, organizers intend to avoid what they call problems that have plagued the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. “Seeking ways to act as a body while making it unlikely that its actions would violate the sentiments and will of it members,” the press release said, the North American Lutheran Church will be constituted as a representative democracy. Each pastor and one member from each congregation will serve as delegates at national assemblies. The delegates will be expected to make decisions that reflect the perspectives of their congregation, the press release said. Major decisions subject to ratification by the congregations. Organizers say what they call the “reconfiguration of Lutheranism” will take place

Lutherans discuss new church body

over a number of years as individuals and congregations examine their relationships with the ELCA and the implications of its actions.” So CORE will maintain relationships with congregations who choose to leave the national denomination and those who remain for a period of time or as a “faithful remnant.” So far, 308 Evangelical Lutheran Church in America congregations have taken a first vote to leave, and 228 achieved the required twothirds majority, the CORE press release said.

“The ELCA and Homosexuality: What people believe and why,” will be the subject of a forum 5 p.m. Sunday at St. John’s Lutheran Church. Dr. Mark Allen Powell will share his own struggle with the issue, speaking as “a man in the pew” who happens to be one of the preeminent theologians in the Lutheran church. Powell will unpack some of the many opinions people bring to the table and explore how faithful Christians can arrive at different conclusions. Questions he will address include the following: Isn’t the Bible clear about homosexuality? Is the church just caving in to cultural demands? What does it mean for the ELCA to “make allowance for” without “approving” the ordination of gay pastors? The presentation will be followed by a question and answer period, and at 7 p.m. there will be a “Meet and Greet the Presenter” during an informal fellowship gathering. St. John’s Lutheran Church is located at 200 W. Innes Street. • 704-797-4236

Saturday, May 1 The quantity of opportunities that pop up in the year ahead won’t matter so much as their quality. Recognize the ones that have much to offer and concentrate only on them if you want some major successes. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Instead of merely hoping that everything will turn out well, take control of whatever you can. If you don’t, you can expect things to go another person’s way. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Mouthing words without any intent of taking action will count for nothing today. All the boasting in the world about your skills and knowledge won’t complete one thing. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Be smart and do all the nastiest jobs or assignments first, because then if you tire, and you probably will, the easier ones won’t be so bad to handle. Reverse that order and you won’t finish. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Chances are that it will be far too easy to be self-indulgent instead of self-sufficient. It might take a lot of discipline to overcome being too lax and letting all your good intentions go by the boards. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Keep an open mind and at least listen to the suggestions of others. Much of the advice they offer can be helpful, even if what you want to hear is only an idea on how to get out of doing what you must. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If you expect others to listen and do what you tell them, you will first have to set an example. Unfortunately, you might be far better at issuing orders than you are complying with them. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — In reality, one doesn’t have to spend a lot of money in order to have a good time, but you aren’t likely to want to believe this, much to the dismay of your wallet and checkbook. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Be careful not to be overawed by the sound of your voice, and refrain from talking too much about your opinions. Although your thoughts are important to you, they may mean nothing to another. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Even though your hunches can be remarkably on target numerous times, this may not always be the case. Allow your knowledge and logic to take precedence over your intuitive perceptions. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — There’s nothing wrong with being an optimistic person, as long as you keep your expectations within realistic bounds. Don’t expect miracles to rule over fact, today. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — There may be certain people in your life who don’t care if you make big promises and deliver little, but, unfortunately, the hard, cruel world does. Be careful what you pledge today. Aries (March 21-April 19) — If you put yourself in a position where another can take advantage of you, you’ll only have yourself to blame for letting this person do so. There will be no sympathy for you. UNITED FEATURE SYNDICATE

A gluten-free diet often reverses damage from celiac disease

French film director Robert Bresson said, “Cinema, radio, television, magazines are a school of inattention: people look without seeing, listen in without hearing.” That makes an interesting contrast to “People talking without speaking / People hearing without listening,” Paul Simon’s lyrics from “The Sounds of Silence.”

Before starting the diet, I weighed 110 pounds, and my skin was hanging from my bones. I had lumps on my forearms and looked older than my nana did at age 100. I now weigh 115 pounds but have gained mass between my skin and bones. I have lost a lot of my wrinkles and look 20 years younger. I even found out that my eyeglass prescription was now too strong when I went for an exam because I could no longer read road signs.

Bridge players must listen to the bidding and “see” the unknown hands without looking at them. In this deal, you are West, defending against five diamonds. You lead the club five. Your partner takes the trick with the ace and returns the club 10, which South covers with his queen. After winning with your king, what would you lead to trick three? The deal is a trap for North-South. North has that fabulous major two-suiter, but with no help from partner, game in a major is impossible (assuming East would lead a club against four hearts). South, knowing he was a

replacement. I can now walk farther and faster before the pain starts than I could before starting the gluten-free diet. I just wanted to thank you for helping me so much. Dear Reader: I am glad to have helped and am pleased to learn of your increasingly better health. Celiac disease is a common genetic disorder caused by malabsorption of nutrients (owing to damage to the small intestine) and intolerance to gluten (owing to an allergy). It affects about one in every 133 people in the United States. Those with a first-degree relative who has been diagnosed are more likely to develop the condition. Of this group, about one in every 22 people has the disorder. It affects children and adults and occurs in every nationality. Celiac is also more common in those with other genetic disorders.

tad weak to respond two diamonds, bid one no-trump. Then, when North rebid a game-forcing three hearts, South guessed well to jump to five diamonds. You should realize that South has at least seven diamonds to insist on making that suit trumps when North might be void. And if he takes seven diamonds and dummy’s four major-suit winners, he will make his contract. You must get a trump trick. To that end, continue with the club jack, forcing dummy to ruff with its bare ace. This will promote your diamond 10 as a trick if partner has the king, queen or jack either singleton or doubleton.

Gluten is a type of protein commonly found in wheat, barley and rye. Any products that contain these grains will also contain gluten. Some unexpected products that may contain gluten include medications, lip balms or vitamins. Not all sufferers experience symptoms, which can occur within the digestive tract or other parts of the body, or they may be so mild that they are not troublesome. For others, they may be severe and debilitating. Children may have different symptoms than adults, experiencing weight loss, constipation, chronic diarrhea, abdominal pain and bloating, vomiting, irritability, growth and development delays, delayed puberty, dental enamel defects of the adult teeth, and pale, foul-smelling or fatty stools. Adults often experience nondigestive symptoms,

which may include seizures, arthritis, bone or joint pain, unexplained iron deficiency, canker sores, missed menstrual periods, fatigue, depression or anxiety, tingling/numbness of the hands and feet, infertility and an itchy rash known as dermatitis herpetiformis. People who have no symptoms may still develop complications over time, such as malnutrition leading to anemia, osteoporosis, liver diseases and intestinal cancers. As I am sure you know, following a gluten-free diet can be difficult and must include diligent label-reading and the purchase of special glutenfree products. Unfortunately, diet is the only way to control celiac disease. For most sufferers, this will stop symptoms, heal damage already done to the intestines, and even prevent further damage from occurring. It may take several years for the damage to be reversed in adults. In

children, it may take three to six months. In some instances, the damage is so severe it will not heal. When this occurs, it is known as refractory celiac disease and can usually only be helped by receiving intravenous nutrients that are strictly gluten-free. The best way to avoid gluten is to avoid all processed foods. Stick with lean meats, fresh fruits and veggies, and grains and starches, such as arrowroot, wild rice, soy, corn, rice and others that do not contain gluten. In this way, you can avoid encountering hidden gluten or foods that may have become “contaminated” when processed in a shared facility. It is also important to be diligent about what supplements, medications and products you use.

Dear Dr. Gott: First, let me thank you for saving my life. I am a 66-year-old female. After reading your column about celiac disease a year ago, I went to my current doctor with the article in hand. She advised me that I had nothing to lose, as I had been sick for a long time. I was diagnosed with lactose intolerance in 1990, but still had severe stomach pain. After reading your column, I went on a glutenfree diet and have been on it for a year. I DR. PETER am a new perGOTT son.

Creat a home fit for humans and four-legged friends

(ARA) - Americans love their pets and there are certainly lots of them to love. Sixty three percent of U.S. households own a pet and the most popular animals — dogs and cats — make up 82 percent of all pets, according to the American Pet Products Association.

With all those furry friends, it’s no surprise that pet-friendly design is one of the fastest growing interior decorating trends. From high-end home items to the basics, decorating is literally going to the dogs ... and cats. Beyond pet-proofing a home for safety, pet-friendly decorating has an increasing number of animal lovers choosing and incorporating pet-friendly fabrics and building materials into their homes’ decor.

A number of cost-effective ways to maintain a fabulous-looking home are also practical and comfortable for both you and your pet. Here are five tricks of the trade:

Common sense color

It’s one of the simplest interior design tricks — matching your furniture fabric to your pet’s fur color to help conceal dog and cat hair. For example, if you have a multi-colored pet, opt for a small pattern that closely matches your pet’s coloring. If you have a white poodle or feline, skip the all-black sofa and choose a lighter fabric color. If your heart is still set on black, accessorize with black pillows or a throw blanket. The same holds true if you own a pet with darker fur — the darker your fabric choices, the easier it will be to hide pet fur.

Skip the slipcover

Thanks to recent advances made in the manufacturing of furniture fabric, there’s no need to hide your couch under an unsightly slipcover in order to protect it from the wearand-tear of your pet. Look into purchasing furniture made with Crypton, a synthetic textile that’s easy to clean and highly resistant to stains, water and even bacteria. A less expensive option is ultrasuede microfiber. If ei-

ther of these choices is still out of your price range, make sure your furniture is protected with Scotchgard. However, if you go this route, know that there are still some fabrics to avoid, such as denim, flannel, corduroy and velvet. Each of them has a tendency to hold pet fur.

Pet-friendly paint Keeping your walls clean and free of dirt marks can be a feat if you have a pet. Choosing a high-quality, durable paint really does make a difference. Dutch Boy’s Refresh paint, a new paint formulated with exclusive Arm & Hammer odor-eliminating technology, is ideal for pet owners. It provides a beautiful finish that’s also extremely durable, so cleanup of dirt and marks is easy. Plus, it actually removes odors, including pet smells, from the air. You’ll not only have great-looking walls, but a fresh-smelling home, too.

Fitting floors Flooring options for pet owners can be tricky because carpet holds stains and odors, and hardwood scratches easily. If you’re looking at replacing your carpeting, there are choices specifically designed for pet owners. One of them, Pet Agree Carpet, claims that it

withstands any damage made by a pet. It’s made from a material that traps liquids, such as pet urine, and stops them from soaking through to the carpet padding and floor below. If you prefer hardwood floors, but don’t want to deal with scratches that can be made by your four-legged friends, think laminate. Today’s laminate flooring, like the new North American collection from Tarkett Residential, is far more durable, and scratch- and indentation-resistant than softer real wood flooring. These surfaces also install faster, are about half the price and still offer a vast choice in unique wood finishes.

Less is more Another smart design tip: keep knickknacks and accent pieces to a minimum.


Open House Sunday 12-3

Today’s trend in creating clean, streamlined spaces is not only aesthetically appealing, but is ideal for pet owners. A well-thought-out design means you’ll enjoy the benefits of a clutter-free environment while keeping unnecessary, decorative items out of reach of pets’ sweeping tails and curious jaws.

Ensuring you, Fido and Fluffy live harmoniously doesn’t mean you need to spend a bundle, or sacrifice your sense of style. By doing your research, formulating a decorating plan and choosing your materials carefully, you can easily create a home that’s fit for man and beast.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS Consumers spent more and helped lift the economy last quarter but not enough to ignite the recovery and drive down unemployment. Spending by consumers rose by the fastest pace in three years, the Commerce Department said Friday. That helped the economy grow at a 3.2 percent pace in the January-to-March quarter. It marked the third straight quarterly gain. Stocks ended April with a big loss on disappointment with two economic reports and worries about a criminal investigation of Goldman Sachs. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 158 points, and all the major indexes fell more than 1 percent. Investors lost some optimism about the economy after the government’s weaker-thanexpected gross domestic product report and news of a drop in consumer sentiment. Shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. plunged 9 percent. Federal authorities will charge at least two employees from disgraced financier Bernard Madoff’s former firm in the coming weeks — and Madoff’s brother and two sons could be next, two people familiar with

the probe into Madoff’s financial fraud told the Associated Press. Madoff’s brother, Peter, and sons Andrew and Mark — executives in the Madoff firm’s legitimate market-making and proprietary-trading business — are likely to face tax fraud charges later this year, but may escape more serious securities fraud charges. The Federal Reserve has adopted a plan allowing banks to set up the equivalent of certificates of deposit at the central bank. The move would help the Fed mop up money pumped out during the financial crisis and prevent inflation from taking off later. Under the plan, the Fed would offer so-called “term deposits” that would pay interest. Doing so would provide banks with another incentive to park their money at the Fed, rather than having it flow back into the economy. Once the economy is on firm footing, this would be one of the tools the Fed could use to tighten credit. Avon Products Inc.’s profit dropped 64 percent in the first quarter. But consumers in many international markets spent more on Avon products; revenue climbed 15 percent.
