Hospital REWARDING EXCELLENCE names Caldwell president Concord native was previously chief of NorthEast Medical Center BY SHAVONNE POTTS spotts@salisburypost.com

Dari Caldwell has been named president of Rowan Regional Medical Center. The Concord native is the former chief operating officer for NorthEast Medical Center. The hospital system told employees about the change this week. Caldwell learned Wednesday she had been named to the top post at Rowan Regional, a Novant hospital. She joined Novant Health in CALDWELL 2007 as director of growth and development for Novant Medical Group. She was also vice president for ambulatory operations and vice president of Novant Medical Group and ambulatory care. “For me, the opportunity was interesting and I was excited,” Caldwell said Friday. “I applied, was interviewed and, fortunately, was accepted.” Caldwell said she intends to continue focusing on the goals the hospital has already established including patient, employee and physician satisfaction, along with quality care. Additionally, she will maintain responsibility for ambulatory services in the Rowan and Cabarrus areas and will continue to partner with Novant Medical Group physicians and leaders to ensure clinic support. “My focus is going to be to take the tremendous pride that the people of Rowan County have coupled with the attributes of Novant Health to maintain a fantastic medical center for the folks of Rowan County,” she said. The opening at Rowan Regional resulted from reorganization within Novant Health, Caldwell said. F o r m e r Rowan Regional president Jeff Lindsay is now DARI CALDWELL president of New RRMC president Forsyth Medical Center and chief operating officer of the greater WinstonSalem market. Melissa Robson, former Rowan Regional chief operating officer, has been appointed the head of Prince William Hospital and CEO of the Novant Health Northern Virginia Market. Caldwell earned a Doctor of Philosophy in health care administration from Columbia Pacific University, obtained a Master of Science in nursing from Duke University and completed a Bachelor of Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has worked in health care for more than 31 years, holding clinical and leadership positions at facilities around the nation, including Seton Medical Center, Duke University Medical Center and White Plains Hospital Center.

The new Teacher of the Year is a smiling Julie Stolze. Her husband, Greg, looks on as she was named at the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce Teacher of the Year Breakfast at the Holiday Inn. She teaches at the Rowan County Early College.

Educators recognized at annual Teacher of the Year Breakfast BY KATHY CHAFFIN kchaffin@salisburypost.com

Julie A. Stolze of Rowan County Early College was named Friday as the 2010-11 Rowan-Salisbury School System’s Teacher of the year. Outgoing Teacher of the Year Joy Jenkins made the announcement during the annual Teacher of the Year Breakfast sponsored by the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce. Amie Furr of Carson High School was the runnerup. The five finalists also included Melissa Conrad of Knollwood Elementary, Kendall Fulham of Landis Elementary and Ashley Lanning of South Rowan High School. Stolze said she appreciated the opportunity to stand at the podium and accept the award. “But the truth is that I’ve done nothing to put myself in this position,” she said. “There isn’t anything inherently special about me that would merit my standing here. I’m not the one who should be honored here today. “Oh, it’s true that I spend countless hours researching best practices, devote time and energy seeking methods to improve student learning, reflect deeply on how to improve my skills in the classroom, work diligently to nurture students’ curiosity, in-

Fundraiser to be held for man with oral cancer BY SUSAN SHINN For The Salisbury Post

CHINA GROVE — When Carson Lineberger was nearly 21, he decided he’d had enough. A childhood cancer survivor, he had 42 surgeries after being diagnosed with bone cancer in his jaw. Carson’s now 25. He works fulltime at Target in Mooresville, bowls in two leagues — usually around 225 — and enjoys spending time with his fiancee, Erica Small, also 25. He jokes around with sister, 13-year-old Onnie, just

as you’d expect a big brother to do. He’s decided after all to have just a couple more surgeries — procedures that will finally give him a partial set of lower teeth. His mom, Crystle, began to ask about an estimate to have these last procedures done with the help of an oral surgeon and a prosthodontist — a physician who is responsible for the restoration and replacement of teeth. “I was in shock,” admits Crystle, who turns 50 in September. “I was trying to find

a way to generate funds.” She talked to her cousin, Ted Deal, a member of the Millbridge Ruritan Club. She then presented Carson’s story to club members, who agreed to help. A fish fry fundraiser for Carson is set for today at the club, 490 Sloan Road, from noon until. Meals will be served by donation and takeout is available. “We do various fundraisers and this one came up and we took it on,” Ted says.

den, and her husband, Scott, “whose love and support and sacrifice knows no bounds.” Grissom, who spoke next, said she shouldn’t have to follow Jenkins. “That’s just not fair,” she said. Speaking of the North Carolina Teacher of the Year competition, the superintendent said, “the state’s loss is our gain. Joy is so outstanding.” Grissom said she didn’t know the criteria for selecting the state winner, “but they missed it when they did not select her.” Had she been selected, Jenkins would have spent the year traveling around the state. “There are a group of children at Cleveland Elementary that need her,” Grissom

really can’t be seen up close.” “To inhale the beauty of a tapestry, you have to step back and look at it,” she said. “When you do, you see the big picture. Flip a tapestry over and you see thousands of threads that look like a jumbled mess — they don’t make much sense at all. It’s pretty amazing.” On Wednesday night, Jenkins said she was in the same position as the Rowan-Salisbury finalists when the new North Carolina Teacher of the Year was announced. “I was not selected,” she said, “but I can truthfully state that in the moment when my name was not called, I thought of my tapestry and I knew that God was weaving me in a different direction — a custom design for me and me alone. “I don’t doubt that, so I am not disappointed. In fact, at that very moment, excitement filled my heart as I realized that new opportunities lie just ahead.” Jenkins urged the finalists not selected to also take comfort as they observe the success of others. “It’s part of their tapestry,” she said. “Also realize that you have one, too. It will be necessary for you to take a step back to see the beautiful colors and design on yours. “Maybe you’re looking at the threads. Flip it over, and see what comes into view. Every time I do, thanksgiving, peace, joy and purpose flood my heart and comfort me. “This past year? Well, it has made the tapestry of my life more beautiful.” Jenkins thanked Superintendent Dr. Judy Grissom; Cleveland Principal Becky Kepley-Lee, who is the Rowan-Salisbury Principal of the Year; Beginning Teacher Coordinator Susan Heaggans; Executive Director of Technology Phil Hardin; and her friend, Cyndi Ross.

TEACHER In a telephone interview Friday afternoon, Stolze said she was surprised to be chosen as the Teacher of the Year. “There are so many incredible teachers in our school district,” she said, “and I’m just very honored to represent them.” Stolze started working at the Rowan County Early College, located on Rowan-Cabarrus Community College’s North Campus in Salisbury, when the program began last year. “I just absolutely love this job,” she said. “It’s the best job I’ve ever had. I look forward to going to work every morning. We have excellent students. The relationships we have with them are so incredible. “This is just an honor to add onto something I love doing, and they give me a paycheck for it.” Before joining the Early College staff, Stolze worked for a year as a curriculum coach at West Middle School and taught for a year before that at West Middle and Knox Middle. Prior to that, she taught in Kansas City for two years and in California for seven. A native of Ohio, Stolze moved to Rowan County when her husband accepted the job as plant manager of Boral Bricks in East Spencer. As runnerup, Furr received a $100 gift certificate to Creative Teaching Aids, compliments of Dr. Alan King, one of the new partners and a retired Rowan-Salisbury School System administrator. Jenkins of Cleveland Elementary, who was also selected as the Regional Teacher of the Year, was the keynote speaker at the breakfast. “You are all winners,” she told the 35 finalists. “And yet there will only be ONE teacher selected today ... But the reality is that everyone’s life will be changed today, both by the decisions we make and decisions made by others.” There may be teachers at the breakfast, she said, that are disappointed to have never been selected as a finalist. “And in a few moments, all but one of our finalists may be disappointed that they were not selected to be the new Teacher of the Year for Rowan-Salisbury Schools. “So how does a process like this work for the good of everyone? Tapestry ... I believe in the principle of tapestry.” Jenkins explained that the beauty in tapestries is found in the contrast of colors and the eye-pleasing designs — “which

Pardon delayed for innocent man “The governor feels from what she has seen from the innocence commission this should be an easy decision with the pardon application,” Pearson said. “But she does not want to make that call with that question remaining from the Raleigh Police Department to draw any doubt on her decision. She would rather give it a couple of weeks and find the DNA evidence exonerates him without any question.” Taylor, who could have demanded the return of his clothing after the innocence verdict, said he would have done so had he known that the testing would delay his pardon. “With the police and courts already declaring I’m innocent, I would like to know why the governor feels any further need to speculate on that,” Taylor said Friday. In February, a three-judge panel found Taylor innocent of Thomas’ murder, for which

he served almost 17 years in prison. The panel heard the case as a result of the work of the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission, the only panel of its kind in the country set up to investigate claims of innocent. Taylor was the first person found innocent through the panel’s work. Then in March, Raleigh police asked to test Taylor’s clothing. Even then, police Chief Harry Dolan said the testing was a part of reopening the case of Thomas’ beating death and not meant to cast doubt on Taylor’s innocence. A Raleigh police spokesman said he didn’t know when the department would get the test results. Former state Supreme Court Chief Justice I. Beverly Lake, whose work led to the establishment of the innocence commission, said he

thinks the law should be changed so an innocent person doesn’t have to jump through the hoops of seeking a pardon. The delay by the governor is “outrageous,” Lake said. “People just can’t get used to this new procedure, apparently — some people can’t. I just can’t see any reason for it (the delay).”

Kannapolis Fire Department responds to blaze Thursday KANNAPOLIS — Two people were taken to the hospital after fire broke out Thursday afternoon at 1210 Pine St. Kannapolis Fire Department responded to the call at 12:41 p.m. The first unit arrived at 12:47 p.m. to find smoke and flames coming from a singlestory residential structure and one person at an exterior door of the home. Firefighters immediately treated the person and began interior firefighting operations. Seven people were home at the time of the fire. Two were transported by Cabarrus County EMS to Carolina Medical Center-NorthEast. The American Red Cross is helping the family with food, clothing and temporary shelter. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Dispute over election results in scuffle LEXINGTON (AP) — North Carolina’s primary elections are over, but passions in one race are still running high enough to cause a scuffle. The Dispatch of Lexington reports there was an altercation Friday between members of a public advocacy group and supporters of failed Republican sheriff candidate Gerald Hege (HEHG’-ee). The groups were at a meeting of the Davidson County Board of Elections, which dismissed challenges to Hege’s candidacy. The board ruled that since Hege lost, the complaints are moot. Hege resigned as sheriff in 2004 after pleading guilty to two felony counts. Melisia Prout, leader of the group Salvation’s Way, says members of her organization were pushed around by Hege supporters after the meeting. Lexington police responded, but made no arrests.

Feds investigate deaths of red wolves ENGELHARD (AP) — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is investigating the deaths of two red wolves found in different parts of a North Carolina county. The wildlife service says one wolf was found April 23 near Engelhard in eastern Hyde County, and the second one was found four days later near Scranton, in the west. Both wolves were wearing radio collars. The wildlife service didn’t say how the wolves died. The special agent investigating the case said she couldn’t comment beyond what was in the news release. The service is offering a reward of up to $2,500 to anyone who provides information leading to an arrest or other penalties.

WILMINGTON (AP) — A man who pleaded guilty last year to altering an identification card after he was spotted in the uniform of a three-star Marine general is under suspicion of posing at an April ceremony as a highly decorated Marine colonel, authorities say. Michael Hamilton, 67, of Richlands wore a Marine uniform at Jacksonville’s Vietnam Memorial during a military recognition day ceremony last month, Marine investigators said this week. Authorities added Hamilton was photographed wearing several rows of medals including the Navy Cross, the second highest award for valor. Investigators from Camp Lejeune said they searched Hamilton’s house on April 26, two days after his picture was published in the Jacksonville Daily News. An evidence report said they recovered a blue dress uniform blouse with seven service ribbons and 18 medals. The report didn’t specify the medals recovered. It is a federal offense to claim or wear military decorations, punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine.

Hamilton has not been charged and the investigation is ongoing, said Maj. Nat Fahy, a spokesman for Marine Corps Installations East. “Those handling the investigation are trying to be as thorough and deliberate as possible before turning it over to the Special Assistant U.S. Attorney,” Fahy said. A man who answered Hamilton’s home telephone said Thursday evening that he refused to comment. The man, who also refused to give his name, claimed to be Hamilton’s brother. Hamilton told the Daily News April 26 that he served in a covert unit that worked in Laos and Cambodia and that he was sworn to secrecy. Hamilton refused to provide any documents supporting his claim. “As far as every medal that I have been awarded, every ribbon, they’re mine; and I’d give them all back for the 286 men I lost,” Hamilton told the paper. In a biography distributed at the April ceremony, Hamilton claims he was promoted from private first class to colonel between 1961 and 1969 and was awarded 80 medals, including two Navy Crosses.

RALEIGH (AP) — The North Carolina man declared innocent of murder in the first case of its kind in the country is still awaiting a pardon because the governor won’t grant it until she gets more evidence, a decision that a leader of the state’s innocence movement called outrageous. A spokeswoman for Gov. Beverly Perdue said Friday that Perdue is waiting for the results of tests on the clothing worn by Greg Taylor the night that Jacquetta Thomas was killed in September 1991. Taylor agreed in March to let Raleigh police test that clothing, saying he wanted no doubt about his innocence. Perdue spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson said the governor also doesn’t want any doubt cast when she grants a pardon of innocence. Taylor is eligible for $750,000 in compensation if Perdue grants a pardon based on innocence.

DOT chief blogs about Yadkin River bridge construction The Yadkin River bridge was the topic of a blog posted Friday by Gene Conti, N.C. secretary of transportation. Under “Driving Ahead with Change in the Yadkin River Valley,” Conti writes: Travel is going to change soon for thousands of motorists who drive through Davidson and Rowan counties on I-85. And, this change

is good. I signed a $136 million contract last week authorizing a team from Flatiron Constructors Inc. and The Lane Construction Corp. to replace the Yadkin River bridge. Design work is under way right now, and construction is set to begin in October. The bridge was built in 1955 and cannot effectively handle the 60,000

vehicles per day that rely on it to cross the river. It is too narrow, and when an accident occurs, traffic backs up for miles, which makes it difficult for emergency crews to get to the scene to help. Replacing it will greatly improve safety and reduce congestion. This is the first of two phases that will upgrade the nearly seven mile corridor. We are working to

find the money to pay for phase two, which will widen about three-anda-half miles of I-85 to just north of I-85 Business. In her budget, Gov. Perdue proposes establishing the N.C. Mobility Fund to pay for expensive projects of statewide significance. The first project that would be paid for from this fund would be widening I-85.

Allison Fink, 7, and Darinn Estojjak, 4, fish for prizes Friday during Spring Night Out. The booth, sponsored by the campaign to elect Douglas A. Smith for district court judge, gave children the opportunity to fish for free.

Improving this stretch of I-85 is a top priority for the state because of its importance to regional and statewide mobility, as well as interstate commerce. Replacing the Yadkin River bridges — the most critical safety need — is a tremendous milestone for us. The Perdue administration posts blogs at www.governor.state.nc.us /eTownhall/Blog.

A Salisbury man, who is no stranger to law enforcement, was charged this week in connection with the robbery of a man held at gunpoint. The Salisbury Police Department charged Tommie Raynard Ferrens, 23, of 715 Hall St., Wednesday with felony robbery with a firearm or other dangerous weapon. Kenneth James Foutz, 24, was robbed of $350 and the battery from his Boost mobile cell phone at the interFERRENS section of Stokes Ferry and Newsome roads, a police report said. A second suspect is involved, police say. The investigation continues. Ferrens was arrested three times in 2006, for armed robbery and assault. The victim, Foutz, was at a nearby carwash on Stokes Ferry Road when two men, who he recognized, drove up asking if he wanted to smoke marijuana with them, said Police Chief Rory Collins. Foutz agreed and got into the vehicle. One of the suspects pulled out a handgun, pointed the gun at the victim’s leg and demanded “he empty his pockets,” Collins said. Foutz was let out of the car near Newsome Road. The suspects took his cell phone battery so he would not call authorities. He went to a home to call for his brother who was still at the carwash. Authorities were called and Ferrens was arrested later that night. In November 2006, a man reported being robbed at gunpoint by four

Rowan has fifth rabies case of year

Rowan County’s fifth rabies case of the year involved a dead raccoon in Kannapolis, the county Animal Control reports. Dean O’Neill, of Christy Circle, told Animal Control officers he discovered a dead raccoon on his property April 30. O’Neill’s two dogs had contact with the raccoon, an Animal Control press release said. Both dogs were current on their vaccinations, but O’Neill had contact with the dogs after their contact with the raccoon, increasing the risk of human exposure. The raccoon was submitted for testing and results came back Tuesday positive for rabies. Animal Control advised O’Neill to contact his physician due to possible rabies exposure and to have his dogs given booster shots.

3-day symposium ends with tour of prison site The three-day 13th annual Salisbury Confederate Prison Symposium, sponsored by the Robert F. Hoke Chapter No. 78 of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, ended with a tour of the prison site on Sunday, April 25. Ed and Sue Curtis served as guides. The tour started in the 300 block of East Bank Street on property now owned by the Salisbury Confederate Prison Association. The association plans to conduct an archaeological dig on this property and later develop it as a memorial park dedicated to the prisoners and prison personnel of 1861-1865. The symposium started Friday evening with the traditional “Reunion of Descendants and Friends” and “Friendship Banquet.” People from nine states (New York, Colorado, Ohio, South Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and North Carolina) and Canada gathered at the Landmark Church fellowship hall to view displays, renew acquaintances, discuss Civil War ancestors who were at the Salisbury prison and make new friends. All registrants received a small piece of wood from a large magnolia tree that was cut down at the trench area of the Historic Salisbury National Cemetery. The tree was estimated to be more than 150 years old and would have “witnessed” the burials of prisoners in what at the time was an abandoned cornfield. Effie Leatherman of Arizona brought copies of her recently published book “Midlin Times,” a transcription of the diary of her Wisconsin ancestor who was at the prison. Also in attendance was Dr. Mike McCully, professor of economics at High Point University, whose ancestor was in the same unit as Leatherman’s and who provided her with support for her book. Ray Barber of Charlotte had his database available and evening speaker Robert Eberly Jr. of South Carolina brought his book, “Bouquets from the Cannon’s Mouth, Soldering with the Eighth Regiment of the Pennsylvania Reserves.” Eberly had two relatives who were imprisoned at Salisbury. Annette Gee Ford of Florida had copies of her book, “The Captive,” which contains the complete court-martial transcript of her ancestor, Maj. John H. Gee, who was prison commandant in the fall of 1864 when conditions were at their worst. Approximately 40 percent of the attendees were descendants of those who were at the prison. Six family members from Ohio and North Carolina met for a reunion and to remember their New York POW ancestor. The Friendship Banquet began with welcomes from Robert F. Hoke Chapter President Sue Curtis and Salisbury Confederate Prison Association newsletter editor Ed Curtis. Veterans of the U.S. military who were present were honored with red, white and blue lapel ribbons. After the Rev. Lee Gosh, a WWII veteran, gave the blessing, a South-

ern cuisine buffet meal was served by Debbie Suggs Catering. Eberly’s keynote address was “You Come to Honor the Soldiers of ‘61.” Eberly, a Pennsylvania native, spoke about the dedication of the Pennsylvania Monument at the Salisbury National Cemetery in 1910. Eva Millsaps sang “Let There Be Peace On Earth” for the benediction. The Saturday lectures were held in the Tom Smith Auditorium in Ketner Hall on the campus of Catawba College. Dr. Gary Freeze, author and Professor of American History at the college, presented the opening talk, an introduction to the history of the prison. Freeze also spoke about how the Civil War impacted individual neighborhoods in the North and South. Mark Pearce of Ontario, Canada, gave a slide presentation on the life of his greatgreat-grandfather, Reuben Pearce, who was in the 2nd New York Mounted Rifles and who was a POW who survived his stay in Salisbury. William Marley of Virginia, whose ancestor served in the 68th Regiment N.C. Troops, used slides to trace the history of this unit, which included a period of guard duty at the Salisbury Prison. Dr. Charles Cooke of Virginia, a medical historian and a descendant of a Salisbury guard, delivered a talk about the problem of starvation at Northern and Southern prisons. At the completion of the lectures, the Salisbury Confederate Prison Association held its annual meeting. Five members were elected to the Board of Directors for 2010-2012. The 10 a.m. Sunday service for Confederate veterans interred at the Old Lutheran Cemetery, some of whom were guards at the Prison, featured a memorial address by Confederate descendant Annette Gee Ford. Union descendant Mark Pearce read the poem, “The Blue and the Gray.” At the 11 a.m. service for the Union POWs who died at the prison, held at the National Cemetery, the memorial address was presented by Bill Searfoss of New York who has erected several gravestones in his area for Salisbury prisoners. The poem was read by Confederate descendant Sherry Wilhoit. At both services Eva Millsaps sang traditional hymns, the Hoke Chapter released white balloons in memory of the deceased, and the Iredell Blues of the 4th NC State Troops served as the color guard. At the second service, the 100th anniversary of the Pennsylvania Monument was recognized with a special memorial address given by historian Bill Weidner, a resident and native of Pennsylvania. The 14th annual Salisbury Confederate Prison Symposium will be held April 8-10, 2011. Information on the slate of speakers will be announced later.

ROBBERY FROM 4A masked men near a West Cemetery Street convenience store. In that incident, cash and a cell phone were also taken. Ferrens was one of four people arrested following the incident. In May 2006, Ferrens was named as a second suspect in the shooting of a man who was attacked on his front porch after returning from walking his dog. That same week, Ferrens was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury in a Spencer shooting. The shooting involved a Salisbury man, Joshua Paul Tingler, who was shot after giving Ferrens and another man a ride. Tingler drove to nearby North Rowan Elementary after a bullet grazed his temple, sending the school into lockdown. Ferrens is awaiting trial on the 2006 charges. Ferrens remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $50,000 secured bond.

DARTS AND LAURELS

Food drive really delivers Laurels to mail carriers and volunteer helpers who’ll be collecting food for the needy during today’s “Stamp Out Hunger” drive. The event, conducted by the National Association of Letter Carriers and the Postal Service, is the nation’s largest annual food drive. Last year, the drive amassed 73.4 million pounds of food across the nation (including 20,151 pounds in Rowan County). To participate, residents can leave a box or bag of non-perishable food items at their mail box. Carriers will collect the donations as they make their deliveries today, assisted by local high school ROTC units. The food will be distributed through Rowan Helping Ministries, the Salvation Army and Main Street Mission in China Grove. How important is the drive? According to a recent study by Hunger in America, the nation’s largest food bank operator, the number of Americans in need of food aid has jumped 46 percent in three years. The study, Hunger in America 2010, found that 37 million people, or roughly one in eight U.S. residents, received food aid in 2009. • • • Dart to an increase in the number of people who are despondent enough to consider taking their own lives, a rise experts believe is linked to high unemployment and continued economic distress. According to the Scripps Howard News Service, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration says calls to the national suicide-prevention hot line it funds continue to increase. In January and February, a total of 102,500 calls were handled by the National Suicide-Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255). That was 5 percent higher than during the same months in 2009. For all of last year, the hot line — a toll-free service that connects callers with crisis centers across the country — handled 626,000 calls, up from 545,000 in 2008. • • • Laurels to citizens who are alert to situations where something doesn’t seem right and aren’t afraid to get involved. A prime example is the botched New York bombing. A couple of street vendors noticed a supicious vehicle in Times Square and pointed it out to police, who were able to immediately secure the area and begin an investigation. The vendors are rightly being hailed as heroes for their actions. A few days later, an incident in Salisbury revealed heroism of another kind. A passerby intervened as a woman was being robbed in a Food Lion parking lot off Jake Alexander Boulevard. The man tried to tackle the robber, who fled but was captured shortly afterward. The robber was armed, so the good Samaritan was not only brave but also fortunate in that he walked away without injury.

Common sense

“I must lose myself in action, lest I wither in despair.” — Alfred Tenneyson

Moderately Confused

Cracking down on the Internet h, my word, what a phenomenon it is, this Internet, this miraculous world of easily accessed information and opinions, as full of energy as democracy itself, the result of literally millions of contributory hands, a two-edged sword like any powerful technology, but an amazing tribute to what a free people can do when given a chance. So how much longer are we going to put up with all of this? Ask Professor Cass Sunstein, something of a phenomenon himself, a herethere-and-everywhere intellectual who also happens to be President Obama’s regulaJAY tion czar, and he’ll concede AMBROSE good points about this communications wonder before telling you why it is we need some reforms, voluntary if possible. Yes, he will say, we should first try to do this without coercion. But he is very afraid. What he mostly fears is how people use the Internet to focus overly much on what most interests them, sometimes neglecting other areas of knowledge and often linking up with those who are like-minded, so that they then don’t get exposed to contrary views, are to some extent cut off from the community at large and don’t learn about other issues and events that matter to their lives. Emerging from all of this is isolation, balkanization, conspiracy theories, ugly, untrue rumors and worse. And the answers, Sunstein says, with various hints of intervention if it’s finally needed, are more selfsupervision, links on some of these blog sites to blog sites with different takes on public affairs and government subsidies for public Web sites. Where to start in response? Maybe with the observation that even the most extreme blogs usually cite contrary opinions as a starting point for voicing their own? Maybe with noting that most of those involved in these blogs are probably more curious than the average person not involved in them? Maybe with the observation that while the Internet amplifies some ways in which we the people behave, the issue of some of us

O

LETTERS

being ignorant and mean antedates the Internet? Maybe that college faculties tend to be collections of the politically like-minded, that most professors are specialists and that more than a few have bragged to me that they do not read newspapers? OK, Sunstein is not now prescribing some ironclad set of Internet regulations. But — as some Internet searching reveals — some members of the House are indeed proposing a law that would imprison people for harassment or causing “emotional distress” through hostility-preaching Internet transmissions, thereby taking his ideas to a scary denouement. The proposed language I’ve seen — and I have not read every word of any proposed bill — is loose enough to stick lots of ordinary people in the clinker for speaking out, and my conclusion is pretty simple: These representatives are a greater threat to America than any blogger not clearly encouraging outright hate and violence. These representatives — and people like Sunstein — are control freaks who do not believe the world can possibly progress to anything decent without their impositions, forgetting that one of the greatest development in human history was allowing sufficient freedom to unleash the ingenuity of the masses and that the one of the worst developments has been interventions that cut off the possibilities for truth to find sunlight and that crush something crucial in the human spirit. Sunstein is an interesting guy. While I think his ideas about the right of people to sue on behalf of animals, ending government recognition of marriage and a couple of others are wacky. And while I find disturbing his seeming conviction that something like absolute truth is to be found in the social sciences, I also think some of his ideas sound and that intellectual provocateurs of his stripe can be socially valuable. The thing that bothers me is that he is chief of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, a very powerful fellow. • • • Jay Ambrose is the former Washington director of editorial policy for Scripps Howard newspapers.

TO THE

Hospice concert brought wonderful message of peace I would like to express my deep appreciation and thanks on behalf of the staff at Rowan Regional Hospice, our patients, their families and our physician partners to First United Methodist Church, their talented choir and Director of Music Matthew Michael Brown for an extraordinarily moving concert given in support of Rowan Regional Hospice on May 2. The musical choices were inspiring and beautifully performed. The music provided a message of peace that is so often needed, not only by the hospice patient, but also by their families and loved ones. All musicians performed with angelic precision, and the love for their gift was obvious with every note. At this time, nearly $15,000 has been raised through your generosity in support of this concert. This will help Rowan Regional Hospice provide medicines, respite care, bereavement support and other services to patients and their families. It is hard to face and to think about the end of life. But with the support of the Hospice Team from Rowan Regional, we can assure that you and your loved ones will not need to face this time alone. For there is never a time when nothing else can be done; hospice is that something when everything else fails. This concert, “For Those We Love,” served as a reaffirmation of living life to the fullest. I would also like to express my thanks to the concert planning committee, Debbie Carter, Donna Smith and Shully Storey. — Kathy Summer Salisbury

hen my third child was born, I fell in love at first sight and never once looked back.

This is a story about love, what it does for us and the things we will do for it. The instant I saw SHARON him, fresh from my RANDALL body and slick with my blood, I loved him completely. It took no effort to do this. It was the easiest, most transforming event of my life, like falling off a beautiful mountain. I realized two things: There was no turning back; and I would never be the same. Make no mistake: I’d felt the same about his older brother and sister. Love is love. It knows no bounds and refuses to be defined. But what was different with my third child was that this time, more than ever, I was ready to be a mother. Anyone can love a child. Being a mother, a good one, is an acquired skill. It takes practice. And with practice comes an appreciation. Musicians listen to music to develop an ear. Artists study art to sharpen the eye. Great chefs cook to fine-tune the palate. Writers write in search of a voice. But mothers? We “mother.” We feed and clean, nourish and nurture, guide and protect, champion and cheer, worry and pray and wait. We do it for years, day and night, waking or sleeping, until we get so good we don’t have to think about how to do it. It’s like learning to ride a bike. One day you pop off the training wheels and just start pedaling like a bat out of hell. By the time my third child came along, my training wheels were long gone. I’d been a mother for five years. I didn’t have to think about how to do it. I knew what I needed to know, and all the rest I was sure he would teach me. I loved everything about him. His mouth, a classic pink rosebud. The way he locked his fingers around my thumb and refused to let go. The way he gazed into my eyes as if he were checking out my soul, as if he were weighing my worth to be his mother — and having weighed it, had somehow found me worthy. I loved how he smelled like a loaf of Wonder Bread. How he sounded like a chicken settling down to roost. The way he grew still and stopped fussing when I whispered in his ear and told him to hush, not to worry, his mama was there. But most of all, I loved his feet. I am sure my other children had very fine feet — and other parts that were truly exceptional — but for some reason I don’t recall their feet being anything at all like his. I wish you could have seen them. They were the most perfect pair of feet I had ever seen, topped off with 10 perfect Popsicle toes. I loved them when they were small enough to fit into my mouth. When they learned to walk and run and take him places I did not want him to go. When they hiked the Himalayas. When they stood beside me the day we buried his dad. When they walked to the altar to marry the love of his life. And when they followed in his father’s footsteps to become a teacher. They are big feet now, calloused and tough, not nearly as flawless as when I first saw them. I wouldn’t try to fit them in my mouth. But they are still just as perfect, just as beautiful to me. I am his mother. That is what mothers do. I love him and his big feet even more now than I did the day he was born. But I have never loved them more than I did last week when his wife sent me a shadowy picture — a sonogram showing, among other parts, two perfectly formed tiny feet with 10 perfect Popsicle toes. This baby, my first grandchild, will be blessed with many fine gifts, not the least of which will be the love of his family — his parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts, a wide and welcoming circle in this world and beyond to watch over him wherever he goes. But if he’s really lucky, he will have his daddy’s big feet. And I for one can’t wait to taste them. • • • Sharon Randall can be contacted at P.O.

LONDON (AP) — Britain’s inconclusive election turned into high political drama Friday, with the Conservative and Labour parties wooing the same potential ally while the markets pressed for results and a public accustomed to clearer outcomes watched transfixed. Conservative leader David Cameron, ahead but shy of a majority, seized the initiative with a “comprehensive offer� to the ideologically dissimilar but possibly willing Liberal Democrats. Labour incumbent Gordon Brown, beaten but still battling, dangled before the Lib Dems their dream of major electoral reform. A weekend of frantic negotiations loomed — but momentum seemed to be with the youthful Cameron. “We have to accept that we fell short of an overall majority,� said Cameron, 43.

Police were called to a shooting scene Friday afternoon and found the body of an unidentified man. They say the suspect fled in a car and police later spotted the vehicle on I-10. Police say the suspect pulled over and shot at officers. Officers fired back and killed the man, who was not immediately identified. No officers were injured.

Reggie the alligator and Cajun Kate are hot new item at zoo LOS ANGELES (AP) — Reggie the celebrity alligator is getting some female companionship at the Los Angeles Zoo. The 71⠄2-foot gator, who became famous after his owner dumped him in a lake several years ago, is now sharing a space with Cajun Kate. The female gator moved in with Reggie after Methuselah, the zoo’s oldest animal, died in March at 70plus. Before arriving at the zoo, Reggie was illegally raised as a pet, then was dumped in Harbor City’s Machado Lake several years ago when he got too big. He drew large crowds, found himself in songs and on T-shirts. Los Angeles County spent thousands of dollars staffing the lake to warn people.

PHOENIX (AP) — Two Mexican universities have halted student-exchange programs with the University of Arizona because of the state’s tough new immigration law. UA officials say the National Autonomous University of Mexico in Mexico City and the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosi in eastern Mexico were worried their students would be harassed. The decision immediately affects 14 students who were scheduled to visit this summer. Francisco Marmolejo, UA’s assistant vice president for western hemisphere programs, says four of those 14 are nursing students from San Luis Potosi, and 10 are scientific researchers from UNAM, as the national college is known. UA President Robert Shelton sent a letter to both universities expressing disappointment. Marmolejo says the University of Arizona respects the decision and understands their concerns.

Conservatives, Labour woo 3rd-place finisher

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mom and Dad may be looking to popular vampire books and the first family for baby names: Cullen is on the rise for boys and Malia for girls. But Miley and Jonas are down, proving that acclaim can be fleeting. Isabella is now the top baby name for girls, Jacob for boys, the Social Security Administration said Friday. Isabella’s climb to the top in 2009 ends Emma’s one-year reign. Jacob is on an 11-year run at the top. “Anything can influence baby names, from pop culture to literature to music and celebrities,� said Jennifer Moss, author of “The One-in-a-Million Baby Name Book� and founder of Babynames.com. Barack still didn’t crack the top 1,000 for boys, but a version of the president’s daughter’s name, Malia, was the fastest riser for girls. Maliyah moved up 342 spots, to No. 296, while Malia, which is how Obama’s daughter spells it, came in at No. 192, rising 153 spots. Many of the top names — and the fastest risers — match the popular “Twilight� series of books and movies about teen romance and vampires.

NEW YORK (AP) — Police cleared streets around Times Square on Friday and called in the bomb squad after finding a cooler and a shopping bag left on a sidewalk about a block from where a failed car bomb was found over the weekend. They opened streets to traffic after finding out the cooler contained only water bottles. A nearby shopping bag had books and a gift wrapped in pink tissue paper. Police had earlier cordoned off a pedestrian mall and nearby streets with yellow tape around 1:15 p.m., while yelling “Get back, get back� at onlookers and guiding bomb-sniffing dogs through the area. The bomb squad X-rayed the soft-sided green cooler and the bag found on the pedestrian mall to determine, “in an abundance of caution,� whether it posed a threat, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said. Six NYPD officers opened the cooler and the bag, took out the contents and carried it off about an hour later, when the department said there was no threat.

Graham has been negotiating with Kerry and Lieberman for months, but said Friday that he doubts the climate bill has much chance of success. “Regrettably, in my view, this has become impossible in the current environment,� Graham said in a statement. “I believe there could be more than 60 votes for this bipartisan concept in the future. But there are not nearly 60 votes today and I do not see them materializing until we deal with the uncertainty of the immigration debate and the consequences of the oil spill.� Sixty votes are required in the Senate to overcome filibusters.

ON THE GULF OF MEXICO (AP) — It was part engineering marvel, part video game challenge Friday as crews painstakingly worked to lower a box the size of a house over the ruptured oil well that has spewed an estimated 3 million gallons of crude into the sea. Camera-equipped underwater robots operated by joystick from the surface labored to maneuver the 100-ton concrete-and-steel vault into place so it could eventually capture the oil and funnel it up to a tanker. It was an intrepid attempt to defuse an environmental crisis that has been unfolding since a deepwater drilling platform exploded April 20, sending toxic oil toward a shoreline of marshes, shipping channels, fishing grounds and beaches. Eleven workers were killed in the accident. The slow-moving drama was playing out 50 miles from Louisiana’s coast, requiring great precision and attention to detail. It took about two weeks to build the 40-foot box, and the effort to lower it by crane and cable to the seafloor began late Thursday night. It could be Saturday before the vault is on the bottom. “We are essentially taking a four-story building and lowering it 5,000 feet and setting it on the head of a pin,� BP spokesman Bill Salvin told The Associated Press.

Carson and his mom visited a prosthodontist in Charlotte to explore getting at least a partial set of lower teeth. Several attempts at implants failed. Carson put in a wax set to see how it would look. “It was real emotional for me to see him with teeth for the first time in 16 years,” Crystle says. He’ll most likely have braces to help align his upper teeth, which have slipped without anything to hold them up.

Carson eats pretty much a normal diet, just nothing too chewy, too crunchy or too hard. “I can’t tell you the last time I ate a piece of celery,” he says. “You’re not missing much,” Onnie says. He has a slight build, but he’s strong enough to do all the lifting required with his job. He likes spending time out on the boat at his grandparents’ place at Lake Norman. Carson is not self-conscious about his appearance or any of his scars. “I used to be real sensitive, because people would ask you questions and make you feel weird,” he says. “After dealing with it a while, I decided I’m not gonna let it bother me. “When you’re different, all you want is to be treated normally. You’re still a person like everyone else. “I try to be as normal as possible — whatever normal is.” “We’ve got a close-knit family,” Crystle says. “We’ve always had a lot of family support. “I feel like God will pre-

The group makes chicken and dumplins at the fair every year and sponsors a fish fry at least once a year, he notes. Additionally, a fund has been set up for Carson at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, where his grandfather is a member. “It’s been a long 16 years,” says Crystle, an art teacher at China Grove and Morgan elementary schools. “The goal was that he would have teeth by the time he graduated high school.” When Carson was 8, he was brushing his teeth one morning and noticed a spot in his mouth. He thought it was a tooth coming in. After two biopsies, Carson, then 9, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. The location was extremely rare, his mom says. Usually, it’s in the knee or elbow area. Carson endured five intensive chemo treatments until surgeons removed threequarters of his lower jaw. He was treated at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte. They never met anyone else with the same cancer in the same location. “We were really in uncharted waters, in the unknown,” Crystle says. She cried all night after Carson had surgery, because she knew his face would be disfigured. Carson now sports a handsome dark beard. More surgeries were needed to repair his chin after the tissue there died. There were reconstructive surgeries. He had to have a lower jaw from a cadaver twice after the first one failed. The hardest part of it all was when Carson had to have distractors to lengthen his jaw. Crystle had to turn them twice a day. “Pain medication didn’t really help it,” Carson says. Contact sports were out. “I wasn’t too happy about that,” Carson says. “ I used to love basketball.” He still shoots in the backyard. So bowling became his

Salisbury seemed to be a quart low in the grit department as well. Right from the start, pitching was a chore for right-hander Brian Bauk, a freshman who brought a 1.70 ERA into the game. He walked East leadoff batter Justin Weavil after getting ahead 0-and-2, then hit two batters before escaping the top of the first inning unscathed. “Everyone has an offnight,” said winning pitcher Tyler Lequire. “Tonight was theirs. We picked a bad one Tuesday night (in Salisbury 6-2 regular-season win).”

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — The perception of Tiger Woods on the golf course has changed so much in a week, evident by the first question he faced Friday after scratching out a 1under 71 at The Players Championship. “It looks like you did make the cut, so you’re playing on the weekend. Feel good?” Woods once went seven years WOODS without missing the cut. Last week at Quail Hollow was only the sixth missed cut of his career. Yet there were so many questions whether his personal turmoil was a distraction in his golf game that even Woods playing on the weekend at the TPC Sawgrass was not such a sure thing until he settled into fairways and greens and pars over the final hour. He wound up at 3-under 141, and was safe. He wasn’t celebrating, not when he was nine shots behind Lee Westwood, the 36hole leader among early starters. “I wasn’t quite as sharp today I was yesterday,” Woods said. It was an ordinary score given the easiest conditions on the Stadium Course in 16 years. What made it extraordinary were some of the shots that he did, memorable for other reasons. Woods hit a 3-wood on the seventh hole Thursday that he popped up so badly it barely reached the fairway and went only 190 yards. On Friday, such a breathtaking

Junior bangs up Darlington BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press

DARLINGTON, S.C. — Dale Earnhardt Jr. has disliked Darlington Raceway since his 2000 rookie season debut. A good car quickly went bad, Earnhardt crashed, then worried he’d never make a career as a driver if he couldn’t handle NASCAR’s oldest superspeedway. ASSOCIATED PRESS “He’s like all but ready to Crew members examine Dale Earnhardt, Jr.'s car after a crash quit, it’s that bad, it’s like during practice. ’There’s no way I can race

here a million times,’ “ crew chief Lance McGrew said Earnhardt told him Friday about that 40thplace debut. EARNHARDT When the problem was eventually traced to the car, not the driver, Earnhardt’s spirits lifted. “He was all excited. Here is ready to quit, go get a desk

job at a dealership,” McGrew said. Problem is, Earnhardt’s comfort level at the 1.366-mile egg-shaped superspeedway has never been very good and it didn’t change after a rocky pair of practice sessions Friday. NASCAR’s most popular driver wrecked his primary car on the second lap of practice, moved into his backup, then scraped the wall with that Chevrolet. “I’ll probably hit it a bunch more before the weekend is

I’ll probably come here when I’m 45 and run a race and say, ’The hell with it.”’ In reality, Darlington isn’t that bad of a track for Earnhardt. He’s got seven top-10 finishes in 15 career starts, and a 15.1 average finish. From 2004 through 2008, his lowest finish was 11th.

Mexico supports U.S. bid Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The United States has a strong ally in its bid to host the 2018 or 2022 World Cup: its biggest rival, Mexico. Justino Compean, president of the Mexican Football Federation, said Friday before his team played Ecuador in a sold-out New Meadowlands Stadium that every nation in the CONCACAF region (North America, Central America and the Caribbean) needs to back one bid. Compean made it clear the United States presents the strongest chance to win FIFA’s favor and that all teams in the region should back the Americans. The United States is up against Russia, England, Australia, joint bids from Spain-Portugal and Netherlands-Belgium. Qatar, South Korea and Japan are only in the 2022 race. Winners will be announced in December. This year’s World Cup begins on June 11 in South Africa. “The U.S. has the best stadiums in CONCACAF. There are no comparisons,” Compean said. “The infrastructure throughout (CONCACAF) of our stadiums is not comparable to the U.S. So we decided we need one bid to come from CONCACAF and we

are supporting the only bidder from our region.” In thanking Compean for his backing, U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati expressed “extreme confidence” that the Americans will be selected for one of the tournaments up for bidding. “There is a general belief that ’18 is going to go to Europe, it seems,” Gulati said. “We can go to 2022 in that case. But we are just as interested in ’18.” Gulati noted that U.S. representatives supplied a ton — literally — of documents to FIFA detailing the bids. For the 1994 tournament hosted by the United States, which was a huge financial success for FIFA and for American soccer, everything was contained in a loose leaf binder. “We are far more ready than in the 1987 and 1988 bidding, but the requirements have changed enormously,” he said. “Back then, you needed a plan. Now, we have contracts with 18 cities and stadiums, have contacted every conceivable government agency ... and this is also a different soccer country. We have seen the birth of a league (MLS), which today announced its 19th team. We have a woman’s league and soccer-specific stadiums.”

When in Rome, Jankovic beats both Williams sisters Associated Press

ROME — Jelena Jankovic beat tennis’ famous sisters on consecutive days and reached the Italian Open final with a 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory Friday over Serena Williams. The top-ranked Williams squandered a match point and acknowledged having an “an apple in my throat.” Jankovic, ranked No. 7, will play for the title Saturday against Spain’s Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez, who defeated Serbia’s Ana Ivanovic 6-4, 6-2. Jankovic won this tournament in 2007 and 2008. Williams, who won in Rome in 2002, was playing in her first tournament since a three-month layoff because of a knee injury. She had been sidelined since winning the Australian Open in January. “I can’t beat myself up over it,” she said. “I just came back.”

NASCAR

Hamlin edges teammate Busch Associated Press

DARLINGTON, S.C. — Denny Hamlin doesn’t care which Kyle Busch he beat at Darlington Raceway on Friday night. Hamlin pulled away from Busch over the final five laps Friday night to take the Royal Purple 200, his third straight Natiowide series victory at the track. Earlier, Hamlin playfully shot down Busch’s contention from last week that he was the “new and improved Kyle Busch” who persevered to win at Richmond. Busch almost did it again this time, sliding to about a half-car length ahead of Hamlin on the final restart before falling back in line behind his friend. “I talked to him over the radio,” Hamlin said. “I said, ’Is this the new Kyle or the old Kyle?”’ Beating any Kyle Busch is a challenge in itself. “He is so good on restarts,

it’s hard to hold him off,” Hamlin said. “I knew that I could just hold him off for one lap, we could clear him.” Hamlin and first-year crew chief Kevin Kidd did just that. It was Hamlin’s third victory in his last three Nationwide starts at Darlington after taking the checkered flag in 2006 and 2007. Hamlin wrecked in qualifying to miss the 2008 event, then sat out last season. “I could’ve been working on a four-peat,” Hamlin joked. Like those two earlier Darlington wins, Hamlin started from the pole and led much of the race. Still, it was a side-by-side drag race with Busch on the last restart. Busch looked as if he had the stuff to prevail but was outgunned by Hamlin’s Toyota. “I think we were a little bit better than the 20 (Hamlin) was, but it showed how pivotal clean air is out here,” said Busch, who held on for second. As for which Busch is

For Hamlin, it was his 10th Nationwide win in 121 starts. Hamlin got a line on this victory with his qualifying run earlier Friday. He took advantage of the pristine air out front to stay there, leading 111 of 147 laps. “It’s an over-

whelming feeling to win at a place like this,” Kidd said. Plus, Hamlin’s prime position kept him free from another wreck-filled Darlington effort. Matt Kenseth, last year’s winner here, wrecked twice and took perhaps the hardest hit when the slammed the inside wall along. However, he waved to the crowd as he jumped in the ambulance for the routine check at the infield care center. There were nine caution periods — one short of Darlington’s Nationwide record, last accomplished a year ago. Kasey Kahne was fourth followed by Jason Leffler, Carl Edwards and series points leader Brad Keselowski. Kevin Harvick, Brian Vickers and Paul Menard rounded out the top 10.

KEVIN HARVICK

Harvick deal is close Associated Press

DARLINGTON, S.C. — Owner Richard Childress says he’s close to an agreement that will keep Kevin Harvick with RCR beyond this season. Childress said he hoped to have negotiations with the Sprint Cup points leader wrapped up before the series heads to Charlotte, later this month for the Coca-Cola 600. “We’ve been talking and hopefully we’ll have something,” Childress said Friday after qualifying for the Southern 500. Locking up Harvick looked like a longshot last season as Childress’ Chevrolet teams struggled to keep up with those of powerful Hendrick Motorsports. However, Childress said the improved performance of his teams — RCR drivers Harvick, Jeff Burton and Clint Boywer are all inside the top 12 this year — has smoothed over issues Harvick may have had. “It’s good for RCR, Kevin and all of us if we can put this thing back together,” Childress said. Harvick has driven for RCR since 2001 following the death of Dale Earnhardt. He’s won 12 times, including two weeks ago at Talladega. Harvick has a 10-point lead over four-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson heading into this weekend’s race at Darlington Raceway. Harvick did not want to talk about any pending deals. “I’m not worried about that,” he said. “I’m worried about Darlington.”

DARLINGTON, S.C. — Jamie McMurray couldn’t help smiling during his record-setting lap at Darlington Raceway. Turned out, he was one of few to leave the track happy. McMurray set a Darlington record of 180.370 mph to lead qualifying Friday for the Southern 500. Seven-time Darlington winner Jeff Gordon was a whisker behind at 180.323 and Brian Vickers third in 179.987. All three bettered the old mark that Matt Kenseth set a year ago. “I was like grinning in the car because you just don’t get to have this kind of lap very often,” McMurray said. It was the fifth career pole and second this season for the Daytona 500 champion. And it came on a day when racers had a hard enough time staying on course at the track “Too Tough To Tame.” Last week’s winner at Richmond, Kyle Busch, scraped the wall on his qualifying run, drawing cheers from those in the stands in front of the startfinish line. Busch will start 39th on Saturday night. Dale Earnhardt Jr. wrecked on his second lap of practice and moved to a back up car. He was so spooked by the track, Earnhardt Jr. predicted he’d show up here one year, have another bad run and give up the sport. That’s an attitude “Little E” didn’t

Earnhardt finished 19th fastest. Mark Martin, who won this race at 50 years old a year ago, had the fifth fastest time and will start alongside Ryan Newman. Roush Fenway Racing star Carl Edwards could not get in on time and used his top 35 position in owners points to make the field. Edwards will start 41st. Speeds increased again in the Sprint Cup series third visit since a multimillion dollar repaving project smoothed out the rough edges of the six-decadeold, egg-shaped superspeedway. Where the choppy surface in the past might give racers time to correct and

yield a gentle “Darlington stripe,” now drivers edge harder into the wall and lead to bigger problems. “It makes it pretty hairy,” said Gordon, who shares the track record of five Southern 500s with Cale Yarborough. McMurray has had his struggles with Darlington since his first Sprint Cup visit in 2003. He had qualified inside the top 10 just once in nine previous races and has only finished in the top 15 once in his last four events. McMurray credited his No. 26 Chevrolet for the success. “When you come somewhere like here, when your car doesn’t stick, you hit the wall,” he said. “You just hope it sticks. And if it does, you run a good lap.”

Hamlin disputes notion of ‘new’ Busch Associated Press

DARLINGTON, S.C. — Denny Hamlin dismissed any notion that Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch has morphed into a more mature race car driver. “There is no new Kyle. That’s just a complete myth,” Hamlin laughed Friday at Darlington Raceway. Busch touted a “new Kyle” following last Saturday’s victory at Richmond. Because he remained calm when his dominant car briefly faded midway through the race, Busch said that was an indicator of how much he’s changed. “For the old Kyle Busch, he would have folded,” Busch said after snapping a 21-race winless streak dating back to last season. “The new one, he stuck in there, he dug hard. He kept going.” Hamlin, in his third season as teammate to Busch at JGR, believes Busch is only a changed man after victories. A perfect example was when a late caution cost Busch a victory last month at Phoenix. Busch responded with an angry rant over his radio, was aggressive as he drove through the garage, and Fox executives said he was rude in declining a post-race interview. “I think you all need to look back in your stories over the last two

EARNHARDT FROM 1B “He’s got a lot of good finishes here,” McGrew said. “If you really look at it, almost every finish he has is in the top 13. It’s just a place he’s never been comfortable. Some people deal with it, some people don’t.”

He scraped it in practice, kept it for qualifying, but was forced into a backup after he hit the wall on his second qualifying lap. Asked in that moment of frustra-

Earnhardt has to deal with it this weekend, his first race since an awful 32nd-place finish at Richmond last Saturday. It dropped him to 13th in the standings and temporarily out of contention for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Earnhardt Jr. brushed off questions about his Richmond struggles, “I’m just the driver. Go in there and talk to Lance,” and said he’d moved

tion about Hamlin’s assessment, Busch didn’t agree. “There you have it,” he said. “I think I proved my point walking up to you.” Busch, one of the most talented young drivers in NASCAR, has been criticized for unraveling when his car isn’t performing well and a lack of professionalism following races he doesn’t win — behavior Hamlin enjoys watching as a JGR insider. “Half of my entertainment in this sport comes from Kyle Busch, so I love having him as a teammate,” Hamlin said. Although Busch’s older brother initially declined to be pulled into the “new Kyle” debate, Kurt Busch eventually admitted he’s seen a maturity this season. Kurt Busch attributed the changes to his brother getting engaged, starting a Truck Series team and turning 24 on Sunday. “Those things that happen to you in life make you grow up a little quicker,” Kurt Busch said. “I’m happy for him. He’s still going to continue to charge hard. He’s going to go after those wins. You just can’t write that was, ’Hey, a good Kyle Busch or bad Kyle Busch’ when things happen. The things that you get to write are that he’s going through life changes and he’s maturing. He’s not 22 years old anymore.”

on from what turned out to be a disastrous race. McGrew accepted responsibility for poor strategy, but said he’s not that worried about where Earnhardt is in the standings right now. Darlington is the final track where the two have not worked together before — McGrew was named crew chief midway through last season — and he’s got notes to rely on the remainder of

the season. Besides, Earnhardt is only four points behind Clint Bowyer for 12thplace in the standings right now. “One race and you could go back to fifth,” McGrew said. “It’s so close right now that the arbitrary 12 number is not really concerning. It’s the total points number that bothers me. If we have a good race here, run in the top 10, it will take care of itself.”

DARLINGTON, S.C. — It’s hard to accurately assess just where Roush-Fenway Racing is as the organization heads into tonight’s race at Darlington Raceway. The team does have three of its four drivers ranked inside the top 12 of the Sprint Cup Series standings. But Greg Biffle, Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards are stuck in long losing streaks that has Ford Motor Co. lagging behind the other three manufacturers in NASCAR. Of the four manufacturers, Ford is the only carmaker without a victory in NASCAR’s top three series this season. “I didn’t realize we were winless in all three series,” Edwards said F r i d a y . “That is pretty unbelievable, but that’s good EDWARDS that it’s an unbelievable stat because it shows you how good Ford has been.” This season has been OK in spots: Matt Kenseth came into Darlington ranked fourth in the standings, while teammate Greg Biffle is fifth and Edwards is 11th. Combined, the trio has 18 top-10 finishes. But Biffle is in a 54-race winless streak, Edwards hasn’t won in 46 events and Kenseth’s slump is now at 44. “We all know we haven’t won and none of our teammates have won,” Biffle said. “We’re trying to get better and better. And we’re searching here. I think a lot of our teams here are a little bit different. Different setup, different this, different that, different front geometries. We’re all kind of all over the map. We’re hoping somebody hits on something.” There wasn’t much to be encouraged about following a pair of Friday practice sessions. Biffle wrecked his primary car and had to go to a backup, Kenseth was 43rd on the final speed chart and Edwards was 45th. Out of 46 cars. The bright spots came out of Richard Petty Motorsports, which is aligned with Roush-Fenway Racing and found some speed from AJ Allmendinger and Kasey Kahne. With 11 Fords in the field, Kenseth thinks the failure to get the blue oval into Victory Lane this season can be attributed to the manufacturer having “all the eggs sort of in one basket.” “RPM and Roush are sideby-side. We use the same engine, same chassis, same bodies, all that stuff,” Kenseth said. “So really, if us as an organization is off, and we don’t aren’t hitting it right, it’s going to be hard for Ford to win. We’ve just got to figure out how to get a little bit better.”

CCC FROM 1B Bauk wasn’t as fortunate in the second inning. It began when ED’s Braxton Shetley tapped a ball in front of the plate that Salisbury catcher Jordan Fuller threw into foul territory down the right-field line. Preston Gammons followed with a pop-up bunt that Fuller trapped against the dirt just a few feet from the batter’s box, putting runners at first and second with none out. “Those two plays changed the composition of the game,” outfielder Philip Tonseth said after collecting one of Salisbury’s four hits. “That was a microcosm of our night.” It was a night that began falling apart two batters and one wild pitch later, when Weavil grounded a two-run single to center field. Before the inning was through Keaton Hawks slashed a tworun double down the leftfield line and Lequire made it 5-0 with a run-scoring groundout. “That inning just shut us down,” said SHS first-baseman Jeremy Forbis. “It almost looked like we were playing too scared. We knew Central Davidson had already lost (7-2 to West Davidson in Friday’s earlier semifinal). Then

we were down 5-0. It was just one more piece of pressure.” Salisbury hurt itself with baserunning mistakes FORBIS in the second, fourth and fifth innings. In the second Tonseth scorched a one-out single to right-center but was nailed trying to stretch it into a double. Kyle Wolfe, who reached on an error and advanced to third on a second East miscue, was tagged out trying to score on a fourth-inning pitch that skipped to the backstop. And in the fifth Spencer Carmichael tried to go from first to third on Bauk’s swinging bunt single and was easily retired. “I can’t understand our baserunning,” Maddox said. “We were already down five runs so there was no need to be overly aggressive. Instead of being happy to have runners at first and second, we ran into an out at third.” Forbis scored Salisbury’s run in the last of fourth. He whipped a sharp leadoff single through the box and up the middle, took second on an error, stole third and continued home when East catcher Davin Lawson’s throw sailed into left field.

Corey Seager’s no-doubt bomb off Brown right-hander Zach Wright, normally the catcher, made it 3-1, and Justin Seager, who will be a Charlotte 49er next season, scored on a wild pitch for a 4-1 lead after three. The key half-inning was the top of the fourth. That was Brown’s chance to make some hay against Northwest right-hander Weston Smith, Hubbard’s No. 3 starter. Ryan Blackmon walked to start the fourth and consecutive singles by Wright (3-for3), Spencer Falls and Justin Kidd sliced the Wonders’ deficit to 4-2. The bases were loaded with none out. Ryan Hartsell’s shallow sac fly to right field made it 4-3, and if the play had ended right there the Wonders were in business.

Cavs bounce back

LT’s troubles continue Associated Press

Associated Press

BOSTON — LeBron James scored 21 of his 38 points in the first quarter to help the Cleveland Cavaliers beat Boston 124-95 on Friday night, handing the Celtics their worst home playoff loss ever and taking a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals. Showing no ill-effects of an elbow problem that was the talk of Cleveland during the long layoff, James finished with eight rebounds and seven assists. The 21 points in a quarter was a franchise postseason record. Antawn Jamison had 20 points and 12 rebounds for Cleveland, while Shaquille O’Neal added 12 points and nine rebounds. Rajon Rondo, who had 19 assists in Boston’s Game 2 victory on Monday, had 18 points and eight assists. The Celtics missed 10 of their first 13 shots, hitting just 27 percent in the first quarter to spot Cleveland a 21-point lead. They were never able to recover as the Cavaliers shot 59 percent from the field for the game. Game 4 is Sunday and the Celtics need a victory to split their home games and assure themselves of another. James wore a black sleeve on his right elbow, which became a concern after he shot a free throw lefthanded in the closing minutes of Cleveland’s firstround playoff game against Chicago. He was 8 of 10 from the field in the first quarter — most of them midto long-range jumpers — and after that it didn’t matter.

LeBron James (23) drives past Boston Celtics center Kendrick Perkins for two of his 38 points. “I know I’m going to hear a lot about the elbow, but I’m here to play basketball and give our team a chance to win,” James said. The Celtics had high hopes after taking Game 2 in Cleveland to swipe the home-court advantage from the 61-win Cavaliers. But Cleveland earned it back in Game 3, needing just one quarter to silence the Boston crowd that got no solace when the Red Sox and Bruins also fell behind early. “We knew how important it was to come out and play aggressive after giving away Game 2,” James said. James scored eight straight points to make it a 10-point lead midway through the first, and seven points during an 11-0 run that made it 36-15 with 19 seconds left in the quarter. Cleveland led by 24 points in the second quarter, 30 in the third, and never by less than 20 in the entire second half. Celtics coach Doc Rivers pulled most of his starters

with 6:37 left, and much of the TD Garden crowd left as well. James sat down with 5:41 remaining. SUNS 110, SPURS 96 SAN ANTONIO — The Phoenix Suns are one win away from revenge. Goran Dragic scored 23 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter and the Suns took a stunning 3-0 lead over San Antonio in the Western Conference semifinals with a 110-96 on Friday night, putting the Spurs in a historically irreparable hole. The Spurs have put Phoenix through a decade of postseason misery, ousting the Suns from the playoffs four consecutive times since 2003. Another win finally ends all that. They can thank Dragic, whose brilliant fourth quarter made it unnecessary for Steve Nash to get off the bench until the final three minutes. No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit.

NEW YORK — Thanks to Lawrence Taylor, such phrases as the blind side and strip-sacks became part of football’s vernacular. Offensive coordinators built game plans around slowing him down. Rarely did those tactics work. He was one of the greatest players in NFL history — arguably the best defender the sport has seen — and became a firstballot member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999. The only point of contention at the time: his off-field behavior. While Taylor’s arrest Thursday for third-degree rape and patronizing a prostitute stands as the most shocking of his run-ins with the law, it is only the latest. The list of charges he’s faced, from drug cases to tax evasion, dates back more than two decades to his playing career and includes several recent entries. Taylor has been cited three times in Florida over the last six months alone for infractions on the road. Online records show he was accused of going 95 mph in a 70 mph zone in MiamiDade County on Feb. 25, a case that’s scheduled for trial in Miami on May 14. He also was charged Feb. 3 with unknowingly driving with a suspended license, and in November for leaving the scene of an accident and careless driving. In February 2009, he was cited for possessing an open container of an alcoholic beverage by the Florida Highway Patrol. That case was dismissed. Back when he was storming around the outside of the offensive line and terrorizing quarterbacks, Taylor’s lifestyle already was an issue. In 1988, he tested positive for cocaine and was suspended for 30 days by the NFL. Even before then, there were whispers throughout the league that Taylor had a drug problem, and that Giants coach Bill Parcells weeded out any such players — except for LT — after the 1983 season. Taylor did not shy away from discussing his wild times. Two autobiographies were published and he told CBS’ “60 Minutes” in a 2004 interview that he often called six prostitutes a day, would spend $1,000 on escort services, and once showed up at a Giants team meeting with handcuffs he brought from a night spent with several women. Less than a year after the cocaine test, Taylor was arrested for DUI when he was found sleeping behind the wheel of his car, which was on the shoulder of a parkway. He was acquitted based greatly on testimony from two doctors who said he suffered from food poisoning. Taylor also was charged with criminal

LAWRENCE TAYLOR property damage in 1991 for allegedly damaging a taxi in Honolulu. Five years later, he was cited for leaving the scene of an accident, which came just two weeks after being arrested for buying crack cocaine from an undercover officer in South Carolina. Two years after that, Taylor was charged with the same crime in Florida. Twice in 1995, he entered drug rehab. He has been arrested for failure to pay child support and for tax evasion, and also has filed for bankruptcy. “Drugs have kept me from being the Christian I want to be,” Taylor once said. “It’s something you’ve got to fight. It’s been a lifetime battle and you’ve got to give yourself a life to do it.” LT often has said he’s used the golf course as his sanctuary, a place where he can escape his problems and find solutions. He often played golf on a course a few miles from the hotel where the alleged rape occurred in the latest case. Taylor’s troubles occasionally are mentioned in the same breath with O.J. Simpson, whose presence in the Hall of Fame is considered an embarrassment by some. Should Taylor be proven guilty on the rape charge, he almost certainly will be lumped together with Simpson in any movement to throw them out of the Canton shrine. The off-field issues certainly were raised 11 years ago when Taylor became eligible for the Hall, and several voters said they wouldn’t even consider him. But he also had his supporters, including thencommissioner Paul Tagliabue. “The Hall is about performance on the field,” Tagliabue said. “Lawrence was one of the greatest players ever.e field, you’re not judging what he did off it.” When voting was over and Taylor won election to the Hall, he took a moment in an interview with Fox Sports to express his resentment at the journalists who did the voting. “You’ve got those guys, and they want to sit there and put me on some moral trip,” he said. “They’ll hold me to a standard higher than they’ll hold themselves.”

Gagne leads Flyers Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Simon Gagne put foot Flyers 5 his Bruins 4 down. He wanted to play in Game 4 — even with an injured toe. Good call. Gagne made a timely return to the lineup, scoring in overtime to help the Philadelphia Flyers hold off elimination by beating the Boston Bruins 5-4 on Friday night in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Gagne, the longest-tenured Flyer, played for the first time since he broke his right toe in Game 4 of Philadelphia’s opening-round series against New Jersey. “It’s a good ending,” Gagne said. “I can’t ask for more to be able to come back early a little bit in the series.” Game 5 is Monday at Boston. The Bruins can still

advance to their first conference finals since 1992 with a win on home ice. Matt Carle, who had four assists, fed Gagne for a nice redirect from the top of the crease for the winner. Gagne said he told coach Peter Laviolette and the trainer to “give me a chance.” “You couldn’t ask for more,” Gagne said. The comeback trail is still a long one, but the Flyers at least have a shot at becoming the third team in NHL history to rally from an 0-3 deficit to win a series. Former Flyers star Mark Recchi scored twice for the Bruins — including the tying goal with 31.5 seconds left in regulation that made it 4-all. Chris Pronger, Danny Briere, Claude Giroux and Ville Leino all scored for the Flyers. Michael Ryder and Milan Lucic had Boston’s other goals.

new coach Mike Shanahan. The two-time All-Pro defensive tackle remains unhappy with the Redskins’ switch to a 3-4 defense and would prefer to be traded. He has also irked Shanahan by working with his own trainer and staying away from all of the team’s voluntary offseason conditioning sessions. • The Redskins have signed free agent linebacker Chris Draft. Draft joined the Redskins on Friday for the start of the team’s three-day minicamp. Washington is Draft’s seventh NFL team. He has played with Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Carolina, St. Louis and Buffalo over 12 seasons. TITANS NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The owner of the Tennessee Titans has joined with the NFL and the NFL Players Association in giving $400,000 to the American Red Cross and a Tennessee group to help the state recover from floods that killed at least 31 people in three states. Owner Bud Adams decided to donate $200,000 from his Titans Foundation and encouraged the league and the players union to match his gift.

The NFL notebook ... EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants have signed two undrafted free agents who attended last weekend’s minicamp on a tryout basis. The deals with Wake Forest quarterback Riley Skinner and Kentucky linebacker Micah Johnson were announced Friday, the same day the team waived another undrafted quarterback — Dominic Randolph of Holy Cross — who they had signed after last month’s NFL draft. Johnson played in 49 games at Kentucky, registering 285 tackles (161 solo) and 3.5 sacks. He also intercepted two passes, returning one for a touchdown. Skinner set 17 school records at Wake Forest, including attempts (1,349), completions (903), passing yards (9,762), completion percentage (.669), touchdown passes (60) and passing efficiency (136.9). CHARGERS SAN DIEGO — Ryan Mathews had a

busy first day on the job The running back, selected 12th overall by the San Diego Chargers in the NFL draft, was the focal point of the team’s rookie orientation, which started Friday and includes four sessions through today. Mathews was already the workhorse the Chargers expect him to be during the regular season, their first without LaDainian Tomlinson since 2000. SUSPENDED HOUSTON — Texans linebacker Brian Cushing was suspended for four games on Friday for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. The 2009 Defensive Rookie of the Year will miss the first four games of the upcoming season and be eligible to return during the week of Oct. 4. The Texans play Indianapolis, Washington, Dallas and Oakland during his suspension.

Old man Moyer shuts out Braves Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — This ol’ man has plenty left in his pitching arm. Forty-seven-year-old Jamie Moyer tossed a two-hitter to become the oldest player in major league history to throw a shutout, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 7-0 on Friday night. The Phillies confirmed the feat by Moyer, who accomplished it at 47 years, 170 days old. Phil Niekro was the previous oldest at 46 years, 188 days when he tossed a four-hitter for the New York Yankees against Toronto on Oct. 6, 1986. “Cool, just doing my job,” Moyer said when told of the accomplishment. Moyer (4-2) struck out five and faced one batter over the minimum to earn his 262nd career victory. The soft-tossing left-hander baffled Atlanta’s hitters with an assortment of low-80s fastballs and pinpoint control. He allowed leadoff singles to Troy Glaus in the second and eighth innings. It was Moyer’s 10th career shutout and 32nd complete game. “Jamie carved us tonight,” Chipper Jones said. “The guy is 87 years old and he’s still pitching for a reason. He stays off the barrel. He changes speeds, changes the game plan and keeps you guessing.” Cubs 14, Reds 7 CINCINNATI — Starlin Castro got awakened by a call to the majors on Friday and arrived in style, hitting a threerun homer in his first at-bat and driving in a record six runs during the Chicago Cubs’ 14-7 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The 20-year-old became the youngest shortstop in Cubs history when he stepped onto the field. Then, he became a sensation. His homer off Homer Bailey (0-2)

Yankees win, but injury list gets bigger Associated Press

BOSTON — The New York Yankees battered the Boston Red Sox and took some more lumps themselves. Nick Swisher hit a three-run homer in an 11-hit attack that carried the Yankees to their fifth straight win, 10-3 on Friday night. But their injury list grew when they lost Nick Johnson in the fifth inning with a sore right wrist and Robinson Cano in the sixth after he was hit on the left knee by a suddenly wild Josh Beckett. “The card is a little short right now,” said Yankees manager Joe Girardi, who also was without injured catcher Jorge Posada and center fielder Curtis Granderson. “It is frustrating, but no one is going to feel sorry for (you).” Phil Hughes (4-0) allowed seven hits and two runs in seven innings and has a 1.69 ERA. His confidence, Hughes said, “is up there. I’m throwing the ball well. I’m just trying to keep

Strasburg shines in Triple A Associated Press

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — If one outing in Triple-A ball can serve as a barometer, Stephen Strasburg will have a short stay with the Syracuse Chiefs. Strasburg, the top pick in the 2009 draft by the Washington Nationals, allowed just one hit and no runs in six innings of his first game in the International League on Friday night. He threw 65 pitches, 45 for strikes, against the Gwinnett Braves, striking out six and walking one in facing 20 batters. He also drove in two runs — one with a first-pitch single and the other on a sacrifice — and departed with a 3-0 lead. Before moving to the top level of the minor leagues, Strasburg went 3-1 with a 1.64 ERA in five starts with Double-A Harrisburg. He struck out an Eastern Leaguehigh 27, allowed 13 hits, and walked six in 22 innings. He ranked first in the league in strikeout-to-walk ratio and strikeouts per nine innings. His performance against the Braves lowered his earned-run average to 1.29.

it going. There’s a lot of season ahead of us.” Beckett (1-1) struck out six and allowed one hit in the first three innings but ended up giving up nine runs in 51⁄3. He also plunked Derek Jeter in the back in the six-run sixth and even hit his own catcher, Jason Varitek, in that inning with a pitch that forced him out of the game with a left forearm contusion. “I had an idea where (the ball) was going. It just wasn’t going where I wanted it to go,” Beckett said. “When you try to overthrow like that, your delivery gets all messed up.” Neither team suggested that Beckett was trying to hit batters. “No one’s going to hit you (deliberately) with the bases loaded,” Jeter said. The Yankees have outscored opponents 37-12 during their winning streak. Jeter played in his 2,165th game for the Yankees, breaking a tie with Lou Gehrig for second place in club history. Mickey

Mantle is first with 2,401. David Ortiz drove in both runs for Boston, which was coming off a four-game sweep over the Los Angeles Angels. The game lasted just 3:01, shorter than the three in the teams’ opening series of the year — 3:46, 3:48, 3:21. After that series, umpire crew chief Joe West said that the Yankees and Red Sox were “pathetic and embarrassing” for dragging out those three games. The Red Sox started Friday’s game with a 15-14 record, the first time they were over .500 since beating the Yankees on opening night. But since then, New York is 20-7. Rangers 4, Royals 1 ARLINGTON, Texas — C.J. Wilson pitched his second complete game and Vladimir Guerrero homered again to lead Texas to a victory over Kansas City and keep AL Cy Young winner Zack Greinke winless in 2010. Guerrero homered on the first pitch leading off the sec-

ond, his third consecutive at-bat over two games with a home run. That put the Rangers ahead to stay against Greinke (0-4), the right-hander who made his seventh start of the season. Wilson (3-1), the converted reliever who earned a spot in the rotation this spring, allowed only five singles in his first career nine-inning complete game. Blue Jays 7, White Sox 4 (12) CHICAGO — Alex Gonzalez hit the tiebreaking three-run homer in the 12th inning, John Buck went deep twice and Toronto won its sixth straight. Gonzalez’s shot off J.J. Putz (0-2) came after Vernon Wells walked with two outs and Lyle Overbay singled. He then drove a 1-2 fastball down the middle about 10 rows deep in left field for his ninth homer. That made a winner of Scott Downs (1-3), who pitched two scoreless innings on a night when there was no shortage of drama.

A group of Ukrainian children attend Bible school. nurses and ordinary people who just wanted to tell them about Jesus. Jerry and I met a Ukrainian pastor on this boat who was among 49 other pastors looking for someone to help their village churches. Many had been meeting in homes and wanted to build churches for their villages. This man, Nykola, preached in two villages. That first year, we sent money to help them buy an old deserted building. After 10 years it has been totally remodeled into a very nice church home. The other village met in the home of two old German ladies. They wanted to buy a very terrible-looking building. Our Father touched hearts to raised the money. God made a miracle out of that old building and it is very nice now. For several years some others traveled with us to help from our church and other churches but the last six we have gone by ourself Another special memory was an older grandmother bringing her small granddaughter to us, asking for help. The little girl could not go to school as she had a

hearing problem. For three years we collected hearing aids here in Statesville, given by several hearing business shops. They never worked as they were too big, then the Lord let us find a mission team called “And So They May Hear.” They traveled all over the world, helping the hearing impaired. They just happened to be going to Kiev, Ukraine that spring. They would see her if we could get her there. It was an hour drive. The farm village of over 400 homes had three cars, and one man drove them in. They were able to make her a small hearing aid. By June when we returned , they came to see us. The little girl could read, speak fairly well and do her numbers. She was a completely changed, excited little girl. A young man, Dima, helped us in 1998 as we worked in a church camp with 60 orphans and for three years afterwards would work with us as our interpreter. He so impressed us with his love for God. He wanted to come to America to go to school as a pastor. We had no money,

but in 2001 God sent Dima here as the result of many prayers. We borrowed the money for his ticket and other needs. He spoke in Jerry’s Sunday school class and God touched the heart of Wayne and Tiny Deal who owned Deal Machine Shop to give us $5,000 that paid his ticket and his schooling for the next two years. The Lord has in a mighty way helped this young man. He and his wife now have a four-month old son, Mark, born with four holes in his heart and Down syndrome. They were ready to go to Ukraine or Russia for the Southern Baptist Mission program, but since Mark’s birth they cannot go. Pray for them to trust God in this. We have been in many villages giving out lots of Bibles, doing Bible schools with children. Outdoor toilets, no refrigerators, no plumbing, taking showers outside in a small shed with a large container on top holding cold water, electricity off for hours. Some years have had several hundred people ask Jesus into their hearts. God has been so good to give us many blessings. This month we go again for our 14th year. We did not go last year as I had another issue with melanoma again. The first time in 1991. Soon, we will be 72 and 69. We both are slowing down physically and believe it will be our last trip. So many special blessings and so many precious memories to share and remember the rest of our lives. The Lord has brought such joy to our hearts. • • • Linda and Jerry Harmon live in Statesville.

These Ukrainian churches are still under construction.

The announcement was made by Dr. Albert Aymer, president of Hood Theological Seminary. “Bishop Williams is a dear friend and wonderful supporter of Hood Theological Seminary. We are indeed fortunate to have this outstanding leader of the AME Zion Church as our closing convocation speaker,” Aymer said. The closing convocation will take place at 7 p.m. Friday, May 14, at Hood Theological Seminary. The service will be held under large tents on the hillside overlooking the campus. During the ceremony, graduands will be hooded in preparation for their graduation the following morning.

In July of 2000, Williams was consecrated as the 119th Bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church.

The St. John’s Men’s Chorus was formed in 1994 as a part of the fellowship ministry at St. John’s Lutheran Church. A churchwide family night was planned for February 13, 1994, at the urging of thenpastor Carl Sachtleben. Karl Kinard, director of music ministries, organized a group of men to perform some barbershop selections for the event. He asked his wife Rosemary (then director of choral music at Catawba College) to direct so that he could be a part of the group. The men’s choral group enjoyed the experience so much that they sang

FROM 1C again at the second annual event, and soon St. John’s Men’s Chorus grew into a community group, composed of men from the Salisbury-Rowan area who enjoy singing all styles of music, including classic sacred choral literature, spirituals, gospel, contemporary Christian, patriotic selections, and barbershop arrangements. Current president of the group is Ralph Hair; Julius Waggoner serves as secretary-treasurer. Accompanists have included Karl Kinard, Janie Rollins, Adam Ward, Susan Trivette, and Rob Durocher. In June of 1996, the Men’s Chorus presented its first formal Spring Concert in the sanctuary of St. John’s Lutheran Church. The yearly performance quickly became an annual tradition, attracting large audiences. Other notable performances have included a vespers service at Southern Lutheran Theological Seminary in Columbia, S.C., in 1999, a “Men’s Chorus Festival” at Catawba College in 1999, and several patriotic concerts, also at Catawba, in conjunction with the Catawba College choirs, and a recent performance at Pfeiffer University. In December of 1996, the Men’s Chorus was invited to be a part of the Catawba College College Service of Lessons and Carols. They participated in every year’s performances through December of 2007. In December of 2007, the Men’s Cho-

rus presented its first Christmas concert for the “Hanging of the Greens” at St. John’s, a tradition that continues. The group rehearses on Sunday afternoons in the fall and spring, and performs for many local events, local and out-oftown churches, civic events, worship services at St. John’s Lutheran Church and many concerts to benefit the Crisis Council’s Battered Women’s Shelter and the Rowan Helping Ministries. The Men’s Chorus is directed by Rosemary C. Kinard, associate parish musician at St. John’s Lutheran Church. Accompanist is Janie R. Rollins. Members of the Men’s Chorus are first tenors: Rob Durocher, Doug Kearney, David Lee, Darrell Norris, Norman Sloop, Bob Tannehill, Julius Waggoner, Mike Weddington, and Donny Yost; second tenors: Mark Brown, Gene Bruce, David Foreman, Stan Jordan, Karl Kinard, Dennis Rogers, Mitch Siegel, Gary Taylor, Dan Waggoner, and Pastor Rhodes Woolly; baritones: David Agner, David Alexander, Lane Brown, Ralph Hair, Parker Hatchett, Randy Overcash, and David Roof; and basses: Willi Beilfuss, Clancy Bostian, Dan Brown, Gattis Bullard, Jim Epperson, Frank Goodnight, David Hall, Tony Herrin, David Nelson, Ron Potts, Gordon Senter, Jerry Spencer and Henry Trexler.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Atheists who oppose prayer and other religious elements in presidential inaugurations have lost a case in a federal appeals court. A three-judge panel on Friday upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit that sought to stop Barack Obama from using the words “so help me God” when he took the oath of office last year. Those who sued also wanted to stop ministers from saying prayers at Obama’s inauguration and wanted the court to eliminate religion from future inaugurations. Two judges said it is too late to act on Obama’s inauguration and the court cannot block religious elements at future events when the participants are not yet known. The third judge says long-standing practices such as prayers and the oath of office are constitutional.

care less and less about cooking. • “Find something bigger than yourself to believe in.” I’m sure what the original author of this would have gone on to say, but first I want to comment on one thing about “self.” Sometimes circumstances in our lives cause us to think so little of ourselves, but to find this peace we (or I) had to come to recognize ourselves as children of the King and just as worthy as anyone. Once we do that we will recognize that God is the biggest and best of all. If you are a believer in the Trinity, a Bible reader, and a Christian, just remember and put into practice these eight factors; then God will grant you that peace that rubs off the rough edges of your raw deal. He will seal the holes in our boats and we will no longer have to fear drowning in despair. Another quote I like goes like this, “If you want to walk on water, you have to get out of the boat.” Take that step of faith if you feel that calling from the Lord. Among the papers where I found these notes, I also came across a verse of scripture that I have never used; I do feel, however, the Lord is telling me this is the right place so here goes (1 Peter 5:10) Adversity eventually ends: “After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.” Linda Beck lives in Woodleaf.

tionship. • “Do not live in the past.” This was one of the first things with which I came to terms when I became an adult. I have shared with others the importance of remembering to forget the past. • “One should not waste time and energy fighting conditions that they cannot change.” There is another familiar quotation that says “Let go, and let God.” If there is anything you think can’t be changed, then you need to learn God is in control and can change anything, if it is in his plan to do so.d • “We should resist the temptation to withdraw during periods of emotional stress.” Some people become shut-ins emotionally because they aren’t willing to ask God, or his angels, to help them. I had accepted being a physical shut-in, but when the emotional restlessness moved into my heart, I knew God was not through with me “out in the world” so against the advice of many well-intentioned folks, I went in debt for a handicapped conversion van. I could not allow the fear or concern of others to take me down. • “Refuse to indulge in self-pity when you think life has handed you a raw deal.” A famous Christian speaker says self-pity draws one inward because it is all about you. One time I wrote a story about “the other Linda and I” having a pity party. It’s okay to have one now and then but Joyce Meyer, the Christian speaker/writer says, “You can be bitter or you can be better, but you can’t be both.” • “One should cultivate virtues of love, humor, compassion, and loyalty.” The way to cultivate these traits is best accomplished by being a listener and confidant; a giver rather than a taker. Sometimes God uses us to sow the seed of his word through our love or concern of others. • “Do not place expectations on yourself that are impossible to achieve.” Living with disability has forced me to accept limitations. Two of the hardest to accept have been housework and cooking. The vacuum cleaner and I tend to get wrapped up in each other, so after trying I just let it go when I get too frustrated. Spilling hot grits on my leg and going through six months of healing has caused me to

Saturday, May 8 Fortunately, your feelings of self-worth could be exceptionally strong in the year ahead, which will produce a subtle advantage for you when dealing with people of all stripes. When they see how much you believe in yourself, they tend to do so as well. Taurus (April 20-May 20) - Although an important endeavor may turn out to be far more complicated than was anticipated, you have much reason to be hopeful that you can make some new inroads into it. Don’t give up. Gemini (May 21-June 20) - An important objective can be reached today, as long as you don’t give up on it. Regardless of how many waves you need to get past, once you do so, it’ll be clear sailing. Cancer (June 21-July 22) - It behooves you to be as honest as possible with a friend who has always been candid with you. Getting off the subject with side stories only delays addressing what you need to talk about. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - Knowing in advance that not everything will go perfectly prepares you to handle those little hurdles you’re likely to meet. Instead of getting upset, you’ll be ready and willing to do what you must. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Rather than yield totally to your good judgment, you’re likely to go along with what you know is a wrong opinion in order to keep the peace. Once everyone realizes it, a consensus can be made. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Even though you are totally aware of what your priority must be, you could get sidetracked for a bit. Don’t panic, stay the course, and you’ll find you can accomplish far more than you thought. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Even when others do things that displease you, you won’t become unduly unwound. Once you refocus, you will be able to see many of peoples’ good points, and will use this perspective wisely. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Poor behavior only loses the support of others, so take care to be as tactful as you can when it comes to persons whose help you need to accomplish something you can’t do by yourself. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - When it comes to career matters, for reasons known only to yourself, your judgment might not be up to par today. Be particularly careful when it comes to handling competitive situations. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - You have excellent earning abilities today, but unfortunately you also could have a strong streak of extravagance as well. Be aware of this when making some purchases. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) - Although you’ll be able to size up situations quickly and accurately, you could lack the tolerance to properly handle those with whom you have dealings. Be on guard. Aries (March 21-April 19) - Get your mind off of someone who has disappointed you and get it on making money, where you’re likely to find greater success than usual. Begin by searching for new ways to do so. Trying to patch up a broken romance? The Astro-Graph Matchmaker can help you understand what to do to make the relationship work.

What really happens when you get cat scratch fever? Dear Dr. Gott: I have been diagnosed with cat-scratch fever. Could you explain the disease and its side effects? How long will it last, and what treatment is available? Dear Reader: Cat-scratch disease (CSD) is the result of a bacterial infection known as Bartonella henselae. Surprisingly, about 40 percent of all cats carry the bacteria in their saliva at some point in their DR. PETER lives, with kit- GOTT tens being more likely to be infected than adult cats; however, neither commonly show any signs of illness. Most people contract CSD through bites and scratches; however, it is also possible to

contract it by petting an infected feline and then rubbing your eyes. Symptoms include fever, nausea, chills, headache, poor appetite, fatigue, vomiting and inflammation of the lymph nodes. People with a compromised immune system such as HIV/AIDS, organ-transplant patients and those receiving chemotherapy are at greater risk of developing abnormal blood-vessel growths that resemble tumors after becoming infected. These masses can cause severe organ inflammation and lead to a host of other issues. In the healthy person, however, CSD should resolve on its own without treatment. If lymphnode involvement remains, a patient might require prescription antibiotics for up to a month. The key is to have your

physician make a correct diagnosis, receive antibiotics if appropriate, and take precautions at home by preventing all cats from licking a scratch or open wound on your body; avoiding rough play that might induce the cat to scratch; and washing your hands after playing with the animal. By all means, enjoy your cat, but take precautions to ensure your good health. Dear Dr. Gott: I am a 54year-old male. I’ve had ED problems for about 10 years, resolved through the use of Viagra. But why? I do have low testosterone levels, for which I take injections, but for the most part I am healthy, fit, not overweight, a nonsmoker, a nonalcoholicbeverage drinker and, per my physician, do not suffer from any other cardiovascular problems. So why do I have blood-flow problems in this

one department? Dear Reader: Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects almost 30 million American men. Almost every man will experience difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection at some stage of his life. Testosterone levels decline after about the age of 40. Low testosterone is identified as less than 300 nanograms per deciliter of blood. Symptoms, as I am sure you are aware, include ED, reduced libido, fatigue and mood swings, much the same as women going through menopause. Testosterone replacement to bring deficient levels to within normal range can be accomplished through a skin gel, skin patch, oral tablets or injection. The causes for impotence fall into three broad categories — an inadequate flow of blood, a nervous system

I am entering a 7th millennium BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

It is hard for me to believe, but this is my 6,000th column. (My first was on April Fools’ Day in 1991.) So please indulge me while I describe one of my favorite deals. It occurred nearly 20 years ago at the Beverly Bridge Club in New York City. After I opened one heart, West used the Unusual NoTrump, which in principle guaranteed at least 5-5 in the minors. To do it with 4-6 distribution isn’t recommended, despite the favorable vulner-

ability. After my partner responded three spades, natural and forcing, and East jumped to five diamonds, I bid what I thought I could make. (I did not bid six spades to avoid an immediate club lead through my ace-queen.) Against six hearts, West led a fourth-highest diamond two, which surprised me. (Remember, I thought he had five diamonds.) East won with the ace and shifted to his club. How did I continue? One thing was clear: If West had had a spade void, he would have led a high dia-

mond, trying to send his partner a suit-preference signal. He would have hoped that East would win with the diamond ace and shift to a spade. And if West had some spades, there was a risk of a 5-0 heart break. I decided to test East. I won with my club ace, played a spade to dummy’s king, and called for the heart nine. I planned to win with my ace if East played low smoothly, but he generously covered with the 10. When West discarded, I overtook my spade queen with dummy’s ace, played the heart three to my seven, drew

dysfunction and hormonal abnormalities. Other medical conditions that may contribute to the condition. A great number of medications also have impotence as a side effect. Our bodies change as we age, and what was taken successfully in the past might not be so successful today. Treatment options are varied. If you suspect a medication might be to blame, speak with your physician to determine if he or she will allow a trial period without the drug. There are a number of prescription medications available to enhance sexual performance or to combat impotence, including mechanical devices, such as vacuum pumps, and penile implants. Another important consideration is counseling for both you and your partner. If all physiological possibilities have been ruled out, you might consider seeing a sex therapist, psychiatrist or psy-

chologist. You may have a degree of stress in your life you are unaware of, and certainly the perception of failure is a possibility. Sometimes just speaking with your partner will help alleviate issues. Make another appointment with your primary-care physician and have complete blood work performed.Get your blood pressure checked and a complete examination. Once you identify the possible source for the impotence, the faster you can get on with your life in a way you will approve of. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “Erectile Dysfunction.” Others who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order to Newsletter, P.O.

Mother’s Day History

Every May women around the world are celebrated for their sacrifices and contributions to the family. With all that Mom does for her children, it would seem like the concept of honoring her would be ages old. However, it really wasn’t until relatively recently that a celebration of mothers was instituted. In ancient Greece individuals honored Rhea, mother of the gods. Christians also celebrated Mary the mother of God. But it wasn’t until the 1900s before the general mothering population was celebrated in earnest. Ann Marie Reeves Jarvis was a young Appalachian homemaker who, beginning

in 1858, attempted to improve sanitation and nursing procedures through women’s clubs and what she called “Mothers Friendship Day.” It wasn’t Anne Marie, but rather her daughter, Ann Jarvis, who created the Mother’s Day that we celebrate today. Anna spent many years caring for her aging and ailing mother. Anne Marie died on May 9, 1905 and Anna missed her terribly. Anna noticed that many children failed to respect and honor their mothers while they were alive, and it wasn’t until after they died that these children recognized what they had lost in their parent. She intended to start a Mother’s Day to honor mothers.

In 1907, Anna Jarvis attempted to establish Mother’s Day to “honor mothers, living and dead.” She started the campaign to establish a national Mother’s Day. Together with her friends, Jarvis started a letter-writing campaign to urge ministers, businessmen and congressmen to declare a national Mother’s Day holiday. Her efforts paid off. The first Mother’s Day was celebrated on May 10, 1908 and honored the late Anne Marie Reeves Jarvis. After this initial celebration, Mother’s Day caught on. The Mother’s Day International Association was established on December 12, 1912, to promote and encourage meaningful observances

We celebrate Motherʼs day tomorrow, Sunday, May 9, 2010. of the event. And on May 9, 1914, a presidential proclamation declared that every year the second Sunday in May

would be observed as Mother’s Day. WT105449 Courtesy of ARAcontent

Dos and Don’ts of a Successful Staycation

Today’s homes are more luxurious than ever before. Thanks to advancements in home theater technology, many people find it hard to leave the comforts of home, even when it’s time to go on vacation. That reality is one reason for the growing popularity of “staycations,” in which people forgo traveling during their time off from work, choosing instead to spend their vacations at home. Staycations can prove more relaxing than typical vacations, as long as staycationers consider the following dos and don’ts.

The Dos of Staycationing

* Plan a few things. Regardless of where a vacation is, be it on an island in the Caribbean or a staycation at home, overbooking is never a good idea. Part of the joy of time off is enjoying the freedom that comes with having little on your plate. However, staycationers should plan a few things to do to avoid turning a staycation into hours spent tackling chores or projects around the house. Plan a trip to a sports game or a day at the beach to add some spice to a staycation and give yourself a reason to get out of the house. * Get a grasp of everyone’s expectations. Families staying home this sum-

to look forward to while on vacation is dining out. And staycationers should be sure to dine out at least once. Kids love going to restaurants, and Mom and Dad will welcome the respite from cooking for the family.

The Don’ts of Staycationing

* Don’t “check in” with the office. Just because you’re sticking around town doesn’t mean you should check in with the office. A staycation is still a vacation, so resist the temptation to catch up on work while at home. * Don’t scoff at prices. Staycations are about saving money. But staycationers should keep in mind that they’re already saving lots of money on airline tickets, hotels, meals, etc. If an event nearby is slightly expensive, don’t scoff and ignore it. Rather, remember what you have already saved and allow the family to indulge a little bit. * Don’t let the weather dictate your activity. If the weather outside is frightful that doesn’t mean you should stay inFamilies can still have fun together if they forgo a traditional vacation for one spent side. Get out of the house and see a movie, visit a museum, take the family at home. bowling, etc. Time spent watching the mer should discuss what each member sound too appealing. Ask them if there’s rain fall outside your windows won’t of the family wants to get out of a stay- anything special they would like to do, make for a fun time. EL106492 cation. Kids already have time off in the and make it happen. summer, so a week at home likely won’t * Dine out at least once. One of things Courtesy of ARAcontent
