Collision kills man, injures wife BY SHELLEY SMITH

MT. ULLA — A Rowan County man is dead after a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of N.C. 150 and Graham Road around 6 p.m. Tuesday. The passenger and wife of the victim was flown to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte and was in stable condition Tuesday evening. Wayne Weaver, who was driving a gold Honda Accord, was dead when emergency responders arrived. He was not wearing his seatbelt, author-

ities said. His wife, Alice, was conscious. A landing zone for the hospital’s medical helicopter was set up near Patterson Farm to rush her to hospital. The N.C. State Highway Patrol said a red Ford Sport Trac SUV was westbound on N.C. 150 when the Honda pulled into the intersection from Graham Road. The truck hit the driver’s side door of the Honda, sending the Honda into the eastbound shoulder of the road. The driver’s side door, rear passenger door, windshield and roof of the car had to be cut off to get to Al-

ice Weaver. The driver of the SUV was not injured. Trooper B.S. Roberts said the investigation is ongoing, and three witnesses are being interviewed. The Weavers are members of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Mt. Ulla, and the Rev. Mary Louis Sitton and church member Jan Goforth were at the scene, praying with firefighter and fellow church member Andy Russell. Sitton said Alice Weaver is the

Dream fulfilled

Barber gets little support from county residents

Five decades after graduation, woman attends ceremony BY SARAH CAMPBELL

ALISBURY — Martha Rhea Hartley Platt’s only regret in life is missing her college graduation. But soon she’s wiping the slate clean. More than half a century after receiving her bachelor’s degree from Catawba College, the 87-year-old Salisbury resident will participate in the pomp and circumstance. Platt will join nearly 200 undergraduates in Keppel Auditorium for the school’s spring commencement ceremony Saturday. She’s already got her gown pressed and her cap waiting by the front door of her house ready to go. “This is just a dream for me,” she said. I can’t believe it’s happening, I’m so excited.” Debbie Garrigues set out to make her aunt’s dream a reality as soon as she heard her mention her regret about missing her own commencement exercises. “I thought maybe there was something I could do,” Garrigues said. After a couple of phone calls to Catawba, the deal was sealed. “We’re very pleased that our current and former students take pride in Catawba College,” Joe Oxendine, Catawba’s interim president, said. “Mrs. Platt’s plans to finally ‘walk’ these many years after completing her course work is an inspiring example of that pride.” • • • Platt missed her graduation in 1959 after a mix-up caused her to be one class short of graduating. “I was ready to graduate in the spring that year, and I went to see my adviser and he said, ‘Everything looks good,’ ” she said. “Then he realized I took the same French class that I did in high school.” That’s when the tears started flowing. “I was just hurt so badly,” she said. But a meeting with thenpresident Dr. A.R. Keppel gave her hope. “He said if you can get Spanish somewhere else we will count it here at the college,” she said. That summer, Platt completed Spanish at Davidson County Community College, where she was the only female in the class.

S A L I S B U R Y — Opinions are mixed, but most county residents asked Tuesday think Rowan County Commissioner Jon Barber should resign after he was arrested on a drunken driving charge. Barber was charged Sunday with driving while impaired and failing to maintain lane control after authorities said he crashed his car into a ditch and performed poorly on a field sobriety test. Some residents called for Barber to step down nearly one year ago, when he resigned from his teaching job amid allegations that he was drunk in a classroom full of students. The commissioner would not talk about those al-

legations but admitted to a struggle with alcoholism. Barber was first elected to the Rowan County Board of Commissioners in November 2006, and he was re-elected in November 2010 with the secondhighest number of votes. Salisbury resident Don Shoaf said he did not vote to re-elect BARBER Barber and thinks he should resign. “I don’t think he needs to be serving,” Shoaf said. “Obviously, the man’s got a drinking problem, and I don’t think

ba. But more than a year later, she decided to drop out. “I decided maybe this is not for me, so I got out and I took all kinds of jobs,” she said. After years of working odd jobs at JCPenney and local grocery stores, she decided it was time to go back to school. “I didn’t know if I could do it because my father had retired and he was not able to help me financially,” she said. So Platt kept working odd jobs and found a steady income as a choir director at a country church in

SALISBURY — Lt. Randy St. Clair of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office has been in law enforcement for more than 30 years, and could have retired years ago. He decided to stay, and his dedication was recognized Tuesday at the Salisbury Optimist Club Respect for Law Enforcement Breakfast as he was named the ST. CLAIR Paul G. Wilson Law Enforcement Officer of the Year. St. Clair, a 1978 graduate of South Rowan High School, earned an associate’s degree at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, as well as his Basic Law Enforcement Training, and is an original member of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team, founded in 1986. “I’ve had great people

around me and working under me for my entire career,” St. Clair said. Sheriff Kevin Auten said St. Clair “exemplified professionalism and walks the walk.” “He’s just a quality person that believes in upholding the integrity and professionalism of the job,” Auten said. “He’s not a flashy guy. A lot of people in the public aren’t going to know who Randy St. Clair is. “He’s a good leader and mentor for the young officers.” Eleven additional officers from each law enforcement agency in Rowan County were also awarded the title of officer of the year: • Officer Andrew Rowland, with the China Grove Police Department since 2010. • Sgt. Darren Westmoreland, with the East Spencer Police Department for 8 months. • Officer Matthew Milette, with the Granite Quarry Police Department for since 2007.

Graduation season fuels dreams and hope for next generation “That next generation isn’t going to amount to a hill of beans.” How many times have you heard your aunts, uncles, grandparents or just other codgers use that phrase? I know I heard it numerous times growing up. Perhaps it’s an expected ritual handed down from generation-togeneration, to bash the people who will gradually take over our society when the aging group passes MIKE the torch. CLINE Maybe our pride doesn’t want to admit that our kids can do better than we did, even though we’re actually hoping they can. Didn’t our parents want us to be better off than they? Of course they did. And I want the same for my children and their generation. Looking back, I remember distinctly the instant that it really dawned on me that daughter Casey, my “baby,” was growing up, even though it can be difficult associating that with middle school. Those years can be so awkward for a kid (they certainly were for me). I always remembered middle school (it was called junior high when I was that age) as being very confusing, like I wasn’t a youngster anymore but I wasn’t a grown-up either. Much of my middle school years was like walking through a dark London fog (and I don’t mean the overcoat). I had loved elementary school, and I loved high school, but grades seven through nine, forget it.

But back to my “baby.” I had picked her up from her piano lesson in Eagle Heights. We were passing Catawba College when she said, “Catawba is really a pretty campus, isn’t it?” “Yes it is,” I answered, adding, “maybe you can go here in four years.” “No,” was her reply, “I want out of this town.” (My apologies to the local chamber of commerce for her remark.) I nearly put our car into a light pole, I was so stunned. I asked her when this came about, and she told me that one day back in the summer, while her best friend Melissa was at our house and the two of them were watching an episode of “Saved by the Bell,” that the two of them made a pact that after they both graduated from college, they were going to live in New York City.

Big dreams I did my best to hide my true feelings and to show interest and support. It was one of my toughest acting assignments. My baby in New York — that city would eat her alive. I had been to NYC probably a half dozen times and that was enough for me. A pact I had made earlier was that I never needed to go there again as long as I lived. But then I convinced myself that she’s only in eighth grade and lots of things will happen during her upcoming four years of high school and four years of college. This will pass. I’ll fast forward with a riddle: As I bang this out on the keyboard, where do both Casey and Melissa reside? Answer: New York City. I soon realized that my daughter was far more or-

ganized than I had been at her age. She had long-term goals and she worked toward them on an almost daily basis. Her first three high school years passed like a month, and it was time to decide on a college. “I want to go to Carolina,” she emphatically told us. (My apologies to Duke people.) “It’s pretty tough to get into Carolina,” I told her, trying to lay the groundwork in the event she wasn’t accepted. “I know,” she said, “but Carolina’s my first choice.” While home for Christmas break, she received her “email of acceptance” from UNC, and that was that. Before I knew what was going on, it was time to load her and her stuff into the car and take her to Chapel Hill. No question, one of the two toughest days of my life. I cried all the way to Greensboro on our trip back to Salisbury, prompting wife, Julie, to ask if she needed to drive. That snapped me out of my funk, at least for a while. I moped around for about a week, then things got better, and I was able to handle her not being in and out of the house as she had for 18 years. I naturally assumed she would come home for the summer, and things would be back as close to the way they used to be as possible. But the telephone rang one day in the spring, and she asked if she could go to London for a summer study program. As our conversation went on, I felt myself being twisted around her finger like a ballpark pretzel. The phone call ended with her mother and me giving our


Study abroad So I soon found myself taking her to the Raleigh airport to board an aircraft going over the pond for half the summer. Bad enough that she moved two hours away to Chapel Hill, depriving me of seeing her everyday, but six weeks in England? I’d never survive, but you know what? I did. Her being back in Chapel Hill now felt like a cake walk. Then it was pretzel time again as she asked if she could study abroad in Northern Ireland for an entire semester her junior year. So it was back to the airport, and she was off for almost five months. But I noticed it wasn’t quite as tough for me this time. Of course, I missed her, but it was finally dawning on me that she was now 21 and capable of living on her own. And her mother and I had hoped for years that she would be “ready for the world” when the time came. So now graduating from Carolina was upon us, and we had been informed that it was time to keep the pact she had made eight years earlier, and she was moving to New York City. Casey had made friends with a wonderful Colorado lass while in Northern Ireland, and guess what, she was in NYC taking some post-grad classes. They had acquired an apartment to share together. So the week after she “walked the aisle” in the Dean Dome, she threw her worldly goods into a small UHaul truck, and she drove straight through from Chapel Hill to Brooklyn. There she was in the big

city, knowing one person out of 8 million. No job, no job prospects, starting from scratch. Scary (more than I could have done at her age). About a month later, she had a full-time job, and to make it even better, a job which fell into her UNC major (media/communication). She’s been a production supervisor for a firm that produces television commercials for nearly three years now. A good firm, too. It’s difficult to watch an evening of network TV and not see a commercial produced by this company. But that’s about to change. She decided to give up her job so she can spend her time writing. She has always loved to write. And working 40-plus hours a week leaves her little time to do so. So she’s just walking away from a steady paycheck. My only advice to her was to make sure she retained health insurance, even if she had to eat Beanie Weenies six nights a week, just to pay the premiums. I support her decision 100 percent. In her time in NYC, she has learned how to operate in the city, and she has made many contacts in the business. She’ll do fine. I know the apprehension involved in striking out in business all alone. I did it in 1988. Not having that steady paycheck every week can really change a way of life. But self-employment worked out for me for 22 years. If I can do it, I know my “baby” can do it.

New job Stop the presses — this just in to our newsroom. It turns out the freelance writing will be put on hold, as

she was offered a full-time position with a company that consists of — writing. She has been at it a short time now and loves it. She’s doing exactly what she wants to do, and she’s getting paid to do it, too. Free medical and dental insurance as well. I realize I have concentrated almost solely on my daughter — my child — and if what you just read comes off simply as a guy bragging about his kid, well, that really wasn’t my purpose, because my daughter is only one example of the “next” generation. I have been amazed for the last 10 years watching Casey and her friends flying half-way around the world, all alone and thinking it’s no big deal. When I was their age, I often thought twice before driving a car to Charlotte. I follow very closely the group of kids (male and female) who frequented my house during our kids’ growing-up years. These folks are spread out all over the country, working all kinds of jobs. And with these newfangled things such as texting, tweeting and probably others I know nothing about, they’re all in touch with one another on a daily basis, something I couldn’t do with my friends at their age. They all have their big plans and big goals, and to paraphrase UNC’s Roy Williams, “Dadgum it, I bet they’ll make it.” This next generation? I’m not worried. Mike Cline lives near Salisbury. His website, Mike Cline’s Then Playing (, is a history of movies shown in Rowan County from 1920 through 1979.

Another state employee health plan change approved RALEIGH (AP) — The General Assembly finalized a substitute two-year plan Tuesday to close a $515 million funding gap for the health insurance program used by North Carolina employees, retirees and their dependents but it still could face a veto from Gov. Beverly Perdue. The House voted 66-53 in favor of the deal worked out between Republican leaders in both legislative chambers late last month. The Senate ap-

proved the State Health Plan package right away, but the House delayed because it sought more assurances Perdue would sign the bill. The governor still hasn’t said publicly what she’ll do. Perdue vetoed an earlier version last month because she said teachers weren’t at the negotiating table. “She will consider her options,” Perdue spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson said after the vote.

Like the vetoed package, Tuesday’s measure would still require all active employees and teachers to pay a monthly premium for their own insurance for the first time. The North Carolina Association of Educators, a key Perdue ally, has condemned the premium provision, saying it would result in a pay cut for teachers after two years of no salary increase. The new bill would require premiums from $5 to $21.63

per month for more than 322,000 active workers and teachers, depending on which of the two policies they choose and if they have Medicare. House Democrats urged colleagues to vote against the final product to send a signal to the Senate, which had insisted on keeping the required premiums. House negotiators earlier had sought a premiumfree option for the less generous of two policies now being offered.

Spencer board mulls over tax rate increase BY EMILY FORD


Mike Kepley, from Kepley Construction, uses a trackhoe to demolish the former K-Town Furniture building on the corner of West Innes and Fulton streets. St John’s Lutheran Church owns the property.

St. John’s Lutheran demolishes former K-Town Furniture building BY EMILY FORD

SALISBURY — Five years after purchasing the former KTown Furniture store on West Innes Street, St. John’s Lutheran Church is demolishing the building, having never used it. “It didn’t pan out as we had hoped,” the Rev. Rhodes Woolly said. The church bought the property for $1.5 million with plans to use the building for a youth and community center, as well as a contemporary worship service. But as logistical and financial concerns grew, church members decided to pursue other options, Woolly said. The congregation recently voted to purchase the former Woodson Law Firm building at the corner of West Council and North Church streets. “It was a great plan and the idea is still right, but we just knew it needed to be a closer location,” he said. Church members would have had to cross Fisher Street from the main campus at 200 W. Innes St. to the K-Town property, which was a concern, Woolly said. And the price tag for the project continued to grow. “It’s a shame it didn’t work out,” said Bill Safrit, president of the Congregation Council. The church discovered the building’s weak foundation wouldn’t support youth ministries and church services, Safrit said. “It would have cost us a fortune to fix it,” he said.

The showroom track lighting is still visible after the walls are torn down. Then, the sprinkler system broke last winter when temperatures plunged. “That would have cost us another fortune,” Safrit said. “By the time we put all these fortunes together, we could have built another building or leased a building elsewhere.” The church needed only a demolition permit from the city because the building was not located in a local historic district. St. John’s doesn’t have immediate plans for the K-Town property, other than to plant grass, keep the trees and retain some parking, said Woolly, who became pastor two years ago. The church tore down the building now because members were concerned about liability issues, he said. People in the community were encouraging the church to remove the structure, which had become an eyesore. “Green space will be a much

more attractive gateway to downtown,” Woolly said. St. John’s has the good fortune to be located in the heart of Salisbury and wants to serve as a “vibrant, faithful voice” for the downtown, he said. “We do have that voice in the downtown, and we take it very seriously and with a great deal of humility,” Woolly said. Safrit and the church’s planning committee continue to meet twice a month to discuss options for expansion. The committee would like to present two options to the congregation and be ready to move forward on one of them by November, he said. The youth program and contemporary service have outgrown their locations on the main campus, Woolly said. Several spaces also need renovating, which would be easier if the some programs moved to new areas, he said.

The church plans to dedicate the lower level of the education building to children’s ministries, including the St. John’s Kindergarten, Woolly said. The congregation will have the final say, he said. The church hosted more than 3,000 meetings last year, including many community groups such as Scouts. “A new facility would help us with our own needs and the needs of the community,” Woolly said. Renovations will include the sanctuary building, but not the sanctuary itself, and the basement fellowship hall, Safrit said. As the church considers how best to serve its growing membership as well as the community, St. John’s is enjoying its new, youthful pastor, Safrit said. “Rhodes has been shot in the arm for enthusiasm for the whole congregation,” he said. St. John’s bought the KTown building in 2006 from the Ketner family’s Rowan Investment Co. The purchase included adjacent property at 125 N. Fulton St., which housed the Bijoux Collections women’s clothing shop that recently went out of business. The original building at 324 W. Innes St. was a Glenn Ketner Sr. grocery store and then became a Winn Dixie before KTown opened the furniture store in 1972. K-Town closed in 2005 after 33 years of business in Salisbury.

Man who hit six cyclists last year indicted CONCORD — A Rockwell man has been indicted on charges that he drove off after striking six cyclists near Gold Hill last year. Daniel Burton Wilson II, 21, of 325 Sand Road, Rockwell, swerved into a group of 18 cyclists, hitting six of them and dragging one underneath his Nissan Pathfinder in May 2010, according to the N.C. State Highway Patrol. Wilson was charged with six felony counts of hit and run. His case has been continued sever-

al times in Cabarrus District Court. A deputy court clerk in Cabarrus said Tuesday that a grand jury indicted Wilson in April. His case has been moved to Superior Court, but no date has been set. Wilson was driving north on St. Stephens Church Road in Cabarrus County, just south of the Rowan County line between Kluttz and Salisbury roads, when he hit the group of cyclists, the Highway Patrol reported. The cyclists were traveling south on St. Stephens

Church Road. One cyclist went over the hood of the Pathfinder, one went under the car and several crashed into the vehicle, the Highway Patrol reported. Wilson stopped, then drove off again with a cyclist under his vehicle, witnesss told the Highway Patrol. Other cyclists tried to stop the SUV, and Wilson drove around them in the ditch, dislodging the cyclist who was under the vehicle, according to the report. A motorist who saw the col-

lision followed Wilson’s car and recorded the tag number, the Highway Patrol said. Wilson later turned himself in at the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office. Four of the cyclists were taken to Carolinas Medical CenterNortheast in Concord and two were treated at the scene. Wilson had previously pleaded guilty to driving after consuming an alcoholic beverage by a person younger than 21 and had been charged twice with driving without a license.

SPENCER — To balance the budget, Spencer aldermen will consider laying off several town employees and contracting out garbage collection and land management services. Aldermen struggled through a budget workshop Tuesday night, considering proposals that could increase the tax rate, take money from the fund balance or both. “The appetite for more services is driving what looks like it could potentially be the highest tax rate in the county,” Alderman Jeff Morris said. “I would not vote for a budget that would leave us at the bottom of the heap.” Because the town’s tax base fell 8 percent during Rowan County’s revaluation process, Spencer would have to increase its 60 cent tax rate to 65.6 cents per $100 valuation to maintain a revenue-neutral budget, bringing in the same amount of money as last year. Alderman Tracy Aitken said most people would pay the same amount of money with a revenue-neutral tax rate. “Citizens don’t expect to pay less tax, especially this year,” Aitken said. The revenue-neutral rate is a “no-brainer, as far as I’m concerned,” she said. But Morris said Town Manager Larry Smith should decrease spending even more. “You’ve not proposed enough cuts to satisfy me,” Morris said. The budget is bare-bones, and further cuts would require layoffs, Smith said. “Then propose lay-offs,” Alderman Scott Benfield said. Morris asked Smith to prepare a budget with a 62.8-cent tax rate — halfway between the current rate and the revenue-neutral rate — with no money taken from the fund balance. Smith said he would prepare the budget proposal “by any means necessary.” If the town dips into the fund balance this year, future boards would continue to delve into savings until the county revaluates property again, Morris said. Eventually, the fund balance could dip below acceptable levels and the state would have to take over Spencer’s finances, he said. Smith, who listened while Morris repeated his prediction several times, eventually responded. “Nobody is even going to believe the doomsday scenario,” Smith said. Spencer has been the most fiscally responsible municipality in Rowan County, growing its fund balance from 38 percent of operating funds to 56 percent in four years, he said. Smith said he would never put the town in a posi-


Landis considers trashing three sanitation positions BY SHAVONNE POTTS

LANDIS — After some trepidation, the town board voted to consider eliminating three positions in the sanitation department, if the board were to approve to contract out the town’s garbage pickup services. There was much discussion about how approving to contract would affect three positions. The board has not made a final decision, but is looking at entering into a contract with Crash Morrison Garbage Collection Inc. at $6.50 per customer, which would provide a 96-gallon roll-out container. The Rockwell company was the only one who responded to bids. Town staff said they advertised twice for the contract. Public Works Director Steve Rowland said he had some interest, but this was the only company that responded. The contract would be for five years, but the board hopes the company would negotiate with terms closer two or three years, with the option to renew. Town Manager Reed Linn and Rowland initially reassigned the employees to the Light Fund for tree trimming and right-of-way clearing. Linn said there would still be a need to have another company trim some trees even if town employees are still employed. Alderman James Furr said he couldn’t in good conscience tell taxpayers they are saving them money and continue to employ people whom the town would not need to employ. Linn said if the three positions were eliminated it would reduce the budget by $125,000, which includes salaries, benefits and retirements. Alderman Tony Hilton also questioned whether the town needed to keep all three positions. Rowland defended the elimination saying the department does need the positions. Hilton then said he didn’t like the idea of getting rid of the positions, but was willing to keep the posi-

Three convicted of being habitual felons Three people were convicted of being habitual felons in court this week. Habitual felons are defendants who have had at least three prior, non-overlapping felony convictions for unrelated offenses. • Bobby Glenn Locklear Jr. was sentenced to a minimum of nearly eight and a half years and a maximum of more than 10 years in prison after admitting his status as being a habitual felon. Locklear pleaded guilty to breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, larceny of a firearm and larceny, all felonies. In 2008, Collision Service Investigators reported a breaking and entering at their business and that a vehicle and gun had been stolen. The Salisbury Police investigated the case and the SBI lab results confirmed Locklear’s fingerprints matched the prints recovered on the vehicle. In 2009, Air, Land & Sea pet shop reported someone stole an expensive bird from the store. The Salisbury Police received information that Locklear stole the bird and he later confessed to stealing the bird. If Locklear was not prosecuted as a habitual felon by the District Attorney’s Office,

he could have received as little as a 12 month active prison sentence, a statement said. • Darren Wayne Heffner received a minimum of nearly six years and a maximum of nearly eight years in the N.C. Department of Correction after pleading guilty to felony drug offenses. Heffner was arrested after a successful undercover operation by the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office and the Stanly County Sheriff’s Office. On two separate occasions, Heffner sold hydrocodone to an undercover officer. • Eddie Preston Brown received a minimum of nearly six years and a maximum of nearly eight years in the N.C. Department of Correction after pleading guilty to felony drug offenses. Brown was arrested after selling oxycontin pills during an undercover buy operation with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office. “The results of these cases demonstrated (the DA’s) office’s firm commitment to aggressively prosecuting habitual felons and removing these repeat offenders from our community with lengthy prison sentences,â€? Rowan County District Attorney Brandy Cook said in a statement.

Sheriff’s Office participates in Safetypup program The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is participating in the National Child Safety Council’s Safetypup program. The NCSC program promotes the importance of staying safe and drug free, and will reach children ages 5 to 12 in Rowan County. The NCSC Safetypup mascot has appeared on milk cartons with one-liners about safety and drug prevention. The Rowan County Sher-

tential for eliminated positions. If the contract is approved, the employees would be terminated effective in July. The board also voted to not increase property taxes and sought no increase to the revenue neutral rate. The town hasn’t increased taxes in about five years. Employees will also have to take 14 furloughs, which the board initially said it hoped to not have to do. The furloughs will save $70,000. The budget, which is at more than $10.4 million is, balanced. The board called for a public hearing on the budget at its June 6 meeting. The public hearing will be at 7 p.m.

Alderman Roger Safrit agreed with Hilton. Furr said he was agreeing to disagree. Mayor Dennis Brown reminded the board that by switching the employees from the General Fund to the Light Fund, which is essentially selfsufficient, they could keep the positions. Rowland said following the meeting that employees in all the departments knew the po-

Spencer’s peers across the state have on average a fund balance that is 65 percent of operating funds. “We are already below our peer group,� Benfield said. Morris said the budget proposals were unsustainable and included “reckless spending.� “The more privatizing we do this year, the better off future boards will be,� Morris said. Aldermen instructed Smith to seek bids for garbage collection and land management services, though Aitken did not want to consider privatizing land management services.

But after seeing the low bid China Grove opened Tuesday for privatized garbage service, Spencer Public Works Director Jeff Bumgarner said Spencer also needs to consider contracting the service. China Grove’s quote was $9.50 per can per month, which included curbside recycling service, Bumgarner said. Spencer’s in-house service costs the town between $13 and $14 per can. Smith must prepare a budget message, which includes a proposed tax rate and any deficit spending, by June 1. At the next town board meeting June 14, aldermen will hold public hearings on the budget and eliminating backyard garbage collection. They also will consider proposals to privatize garbage service and land management services and hear how many town workers could lose their jobs. Contact reporter Emily Ford at 704-797-4264.

NC Senate looks to spend less on schools things worse, Pearson said. Perdue is “disgusted by these numbers. She’s disappointed by these numbers,� Pearson said. “This budget would move North Carolina backward.� Legislative Republicans said the tally of job losses is overstated given vacancies, personnel turnover and spending flexibility. They said the cuts are necessary to bring spending in line with available revenues. The revenues leave out a pair of temporary taxes that the GOP is resolute in letting expire this year, at a loss of $1.3 billion. The taxes were agreed to by Democrats and Perdue in 2009 to fill an earlier budget hole. “There are people that are going to be unhappy on every front,� Tillman said, but “we’re going to honor our word. Temporary is temporary.� The Senate hopes to get its final budget through committees before Memorial Day, followed by the first of two required floor votes May 31, Berger said. Then the House and Senate would attempt to work out a final plan to present to Perdue. Her recent comments on the House budget have raised the possibility she would veto whatever


budget is presented to her if it contains the level of public education cuts the GOP is currently discussing. Berger sounded unconcerned about that possibility. “I didn’t hear that the governor would sign the House budget,� he said. “I think our goal is to do what we promised the voters we were going to do when we were elected back in November.� He said a stopgap spending measure would be needed to keep government operating if a budget law can’t be signed by the governor by June 30, or the House can’t retain enough Democratic support to override a veto. Senate Minority Leader Martin Nesbitt, D-Buncombe, said the Republicans should consider retaining some or all of the temporary taxes to lessen the cuts. Otherwise, he said, Senate Democrats will do whatever they can to prevent the level of education cuts the GOP is considering. “I don’t know how successful we’ll be, but there are answers out there,� Nesbitt said. “This is self-induced.

RALEIGH (AP) — Senate Republicans on Tuesday rolled out even lower proposed spending targets for North Carolina’s public schools than the House voted for last week, raising the ire of Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue and talk about what a budget bill veto could mean. Leaders of the Senate education subcommittee announced they want to spend $87 million more than the House would for the University of North Carolina system, while at the same time spending $106 million less for the public schools and $21 million less on community colleges. Overall, senators aim to spend $40 million less on public education compared to the House, or $10.6 billion. The Senate total still is $626 million less than what Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue proposed in her budget offer in February, or a 5.6 percent reduction, according to a document generated by the Legislature’s fiscal staff. The rearrangement of public education spending levels was expected. Senate leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham, and others had said earlier UNC would be treated better in the Senate, which historically has been a booster for the university system. “We’re trying to make a little balance in the cuts. You can’t go overboard anywhere,� said Sen. Jerry Tillman, R-Randolph, co-chairman of the education subcommittee. “There’s not enough money to go around. We realize the position is causing a lot of harm.� The Senate’s tentative education spending targets for the new year starting July 1 are $7.1 billion for the public schools, $2.5 billion for UNC and $970 million for the community college system. The news angered Perdue, according to spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson. Perdue and other Democrats already have panned the House budget, particularly in education, arguing it would lead to the elimination of funding for more than 18,000 public education jobs. Even deeper cuts in the Senate plan would only make

Rowan’s year for champions ongratulations to the Salisbury High boys golf team for winning the 2A state championship on Tuesday. They very nearly won the trophy in 2010; this year was their time. This is the sixth state championship of the year for Rowan County high schools, including four for Salisbury in football, girls tennis, girls basketball and now boys golf. The other championships went to North Rowan High School’s boys basketball team and West Rowan High School’s football team. Salisbury has the additional honor of receiving the Exemplary School Award from the N.C. High School Athletic Association for a winning combination of athletics, academics, community involvement and other factors. The school averages 134 scholarathletes a year. Impressive. People around the state are beginning to talk. This is the 28th state title Rowan teams have won since 2000, with 15 of those coming in just the past three years. Fans from other counties ask if there’s something in the water here. Don’t think so. The sign at the county line proclaims Rowan as a community “committed to excellence,” and our young athletes appear to have taken it to heart. Sports Editor Ronnie Gallagher calls the 2011 crew “the most talented senior class to ever come through Rowan County.” That’s saying something. These championships represent more than talent. Young people put years of practice and self-discipline into honing their skills. The winning formula also goes beyond the players. Coaches have tremendous influence on these young people; you can’t say enough about the coaches’ hard work, knowledge, strategy and discipline. Principals and faculty are key, also. And the road to championships is often driven by parents who have carted kids to practices and games from elementary school on. They spend countless hours sitting in bleachers to cheer on their young athletes. They spend untold dollars on camps, shoes, equipment, physicals, uniforms and other sports paraphernalia. These winning teams show that Rowan County is indeed committed to being the best. It shows most obviously in athletics; the competitive spirit runs deep here. We can carry the winning streak further by putting the same effort into academics — Rowan has stars there, too — and striving to stay healthy and fit. We should put a bigger sign on the interstate. In fact, a billboard may be in order: Rowan County, a community committed to excellence and home of 28 state championship teams since 2000. Simply the best.


Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

You are today where your thoughts brought you .... You will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you. — James L. Allen


fter watching President Obama’s television interview on CBS’ 60 Minutes — by far his most presidentially impressive event to date — I began thinking about how differently we perceived our presidents back in the days when radio ruled the waves. Specifically, I thought about two radio events — and what they allowed us to “see” a bit more clearly — about MARTIN our presidents and ourselves. SCHRAM The first event was the most fascinating fact about America’s first televised presidential campaign debate, the 1960 meeting of John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon: People who saw it on television told pollsters Kennedy won the debate, but those who heard it on radio were convinced Nixon had won. The debate’s radio listeners, un-diverted by visual distractions (JFK’s Hollywood handsome looks; Nixon’s fiveo’clock stubble and sweating upper lip), focused only on but what was said. And that thought led me to

dial back just a bit more and recall a unique primetime radio drama show called “Mr. President.” Each week, on ABC Radio from 1947-53, the show portrayed a crucial event in a past presidency. But the shows never mentioned the president’s name — everyone called him “Mr. President” — until the show’s final line. Then he was referred to by name. Radio audiences were invited to guess the president’s name before it was revealed. With no visual guideposts — no wigs, no beards, no fashions — to hint at the era, listeners focused solely on spoken words. Last Sunday night, President Obama was strong, resolute and every bit the commander-in-chief you’d typecast for the part by voice alone. He de-briefed America on the events that got Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. He talked straight with his fellow citizens: “At the end of the day, this was still a 55/45 situation. I mean, we could not say definitively that bin Laden was there. Had he not been there, then there would have been significant consequences.” He said some top advisers opposed sending U.S. troops on the mission: “...every time I

sit down in the Situation Room, every one of my advisors around there knows I expect them to give me their best assessments. And so the fact that there were some who voiced doubts about this approach was invaluable, because it meant the plan was sharper...” He wasn’t about boasting or swaggering, in deciding against releasing graphic photos of the al Qaeda terrorist leader’s corpse: “You know, that’s not who we are. You know, we don’t trot out this stuff as trophies. ...we don’t need to spike the football. And I think that given the graphic nature of these photos, it would create some national security risk.” He praised the Navy SEALs, the CIA and the work of his predecessor, George W. Bush. On the screen, Obama was, by every measure, the gold standard of a commander-inchief. As I watched, I began wondering not about the millions of proud Americans, but the small percentage among us who have been those loud, vicious Obama haters. Not the opposition leaders who praised Obama. But I wondered what the bigots in our midst, who mocked his race and disputed his religion are

really thinking now. And mainly: What would Obama haters have thought if, before the last election, we could have played a radio-only version of Sunday’s 60 Minutes interview — with the chief executive only referred to as “Mr. President?” What would the haters have thought upon hearing that decisive admirable commander-in-chief? With their eyes seeing nothing to hate, and their ears hearing lots to love, Obama haters could have come away thinking, deep down: “This is my kind of commander-inchief!” (Until, of course, they actually saw who they were cheering.) Tomorrow, unrepentant Obama haters will still be surfing our talk radio waves and clogging our blogs with their venomous stuff. But the rest of us — in the news media as well as the electorate — need to keep reminding each other that the politics of hate must have no home in the U.S.A. • • • Martin Schram writes political analysis for Scripps Howard News Service.

LETTERS Touch a Truck event made children’s day We would like to thank all the sponsors and volunteers who put on the Touch a Truck in Salisbury. We took my 18-month-old great-nephew to the event. He sees the trucks around town and loves to point, and it’s “Truck, truck!” We observed these men and women taking lots of time with every child, lifting them up to the vehicles and pointing out things and answering questions. The children were trying on fire helmets and boots, getting in and out of boats and watching the garbage truck empty barrels. Kids got to get on a city bus, ride a trolley and watch the police officer on the Segway ride all around and pretend to fall off, causing giggles. We also observed a firefighter lift a child from a wheelchair, place her behind the wheel of a firetruck and take extra pains to make her feel special. He showed her how to make the bell ring, the lights flash, the horn sound and the sirens wail, much to her delight and her parents’. I know these people probably went home with aching muscles, sore arms and backs, but they did it with smiles just as big as as the kids who were there, Kaden is 18 months old and went on every truck once —

Unemployment is typically the last economic indicator to recover from a recession, but even at 9 percent the jobless rate is positively brisk compared to another badly lagging sector — housing. The rate of decline in home prices had been improving since it seemed to bottom out in 2009. But that upswing has come to an abrupt end. The real estate research firm Zillow says home prices dropped 3 percent in the first quarter of this year and fell 8.2 percent year-overyear. Prices have not fallen for 57 straight months, according to Zillow, and 28.4 percent of homeowners are underwater on their mortgages, meaning they owe more than their house is worth. Economists who had forecast the housing market would bottom out this year are now saying it will be sometime in 2012. Acting as a drag on any recovery is the vast number of foreclosed homes selling — when they sell — at huge discounts. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac sold 94,000 foreclosed homes in the first quarter, but the mortgages giants have an inventory of 218,000 homes, up 33 percent from a year ago. And all of this is getting expensive. Bailing out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from defaulted mortgages has cost $259 billion and Fannie Mae has just asked the government another $8.5 billion. There is not much the government can do except wince and write the checks until the market stabilizes and lenders recover their confidence. Mortgage rates are really low — if you can get one. Lenders who were burned by their overconfidence during the boom are now, according to anecdotal evidence, too cautious about making loans, even to buyers who meet all the usual standards of credit worthiness. What the government should not do is act to artificially re-inflate the housing bubble. The $9,000 homebuyer’s tax credit that expired last year bought a reprieve in the slide in home prices but it was both temporary and expensive. We can only hope that once the unemployed find jobs they’ll want to buy a house. There are plenty available.

A R E A / S TAT E / N AT I O N


SALISBURY — A Rowan County man previously charged with taking indecent liberties with three boys nearly a decade ago was indicted with violating the sex offender law. Coy Sheets, 72, was indicted this month on a violation involving sex-offender restrictions. In October Sheets was charged after authorities say he made advances toward a juvenile boy. Sheets pleaded no contest in 2006 to charges he took indecent liberties with three boys. Authorities received information from a concerned citizen that Sheets had been seen with a young man who appeared to be under 18. Under the state’s sex offender laws, Sheets is not allowed to be alone with underaged subjects. The following other indictments were handed up: • Susan Adkins, two counts possession with the intent to manufacture sell and deliver heroin, two counts sell and deliver heroin and maintaining a vehicle/dwelling place for a controlled substance. Adkins was arrested in December 2010 after undercover officers bought heroin from her Flowering Lane home. • Tyravia Angle, obtaining property by false pretense, forgery/uttering. In February, the teen was accused of trying to obtain money and merchandise from Community Grocery and Hardware at Statesville Boulevard in December. Counterfeit checks were also drawn on the account of Family Dollar store at Statesville Boulevard. • Steven Beaver, two counts statutory rape, two counts indecent liberties with a child and first-degree sex offense of a child. Investigators received a call from the hospital in February that someone wanted to speak to officers about an ongoing sexual assault/abuse. • Floyd Blakeney, first-degree arson. He was charged in March with burning a building with an acquaintance of his inside. Jennifer Thomas awoke to flames inside the building. She managed to escape through a window without injuries. • Timothy Button Jr., possession of weapon of mass destruction, possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor child abuse.

Also a pipe and digital scale were also found, along with a large amount of a legal herb called Damiana, which is similar to marijuana. • Calvin Cowan, three counts of statutory sex offense of a person. Cowan was charged in November with having sex with a 14-year-old girl. • Dadrian Cowan, common la robbery. Keith Davidson, common law robbery. Cowan along with two others students are accused of cornering a Henderson Independent High School student, going through his pockets and taking his wallet. In February, Cowan pleaded guilty to simple affray for a 2009 incident where he was charged following an afterschool brawl near Salisbury High School. • Melvin Cruse, statutory rape, sex offense, indecent liberties with a child. He was charged in March after a 14-year-old girl said she and friends were at his house and he is alleged to have forced himself on her. • Joshua Dayvault, possession of stolen goods, trafficking in opium/heroin, breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, three counts attempted breaking and entering, financial card theft. • Levar Everett, four counts selling and delivering schedule II controlled substance, four counts possession with intent to manufacture sell and delivering a schedule II controlled substance, and maintaining a vehicle, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession with the intent to sell alcohol. • Devante McCluney, two counts possession with the intent to sell and deliver marijuana and two counts sell marijuana. • Antonio Mendez, three counts indecent liberties with a child, four counts contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, participating in prostitution.

misdemeanor larceny, attempted breaking and entering, breaking and entering, and first-degree burglary. Morgan was charged in December after a woman said she saw a person walk out of her utility room.

Mississippi Delta braces for flood of historic proportions

Obama mocks GOP over border security EL PASO, Texas (AP) — In search of Hispanic votes and an immigration overhaul, President Barack Obama on Tuesday stood at the U.S.Mexico border for the first time since winning the White House and declared it more secure than ever. He mocked Republican lawmakers for blocking immigration over border security alone, saying they won’t be happy until they get a moat with alligators along the border. “They’ll never be satisfied,” he said. Stymied by both chambers of Congress, the president

inmates fill sand bags for residents in advance of flooding. ditched lawmakers in favor of voters who might pressure them, making an appeal to the public on a hot and dusty day far outside the beltway. He told a friendly El Paso, Texas, crowd that it’s up to them to tell Congress to pass legislation providing a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. The approach also allowed the president to make clear that it’s Republicans — not him — standing in the way of immigration legislation. As his re-election approaches it’s a message he wants broadcast loud and clear to Latino voters who don’t like his administration’s heavy deportations and feel he never made good on his promise to prioritize immigration legislation during his first year in office.

Al-Qaida may, or may not, pick successor BAGHDAD (AP) — A week after the death of Osama bin Laden, his longtime deputy is considered the front-runner to succeed the iconic al-Qaida founder. But uprisings in the

Middle East and changing dynamics within the group could point to another scenario: a decision not to appoint anyone at all to replace the world’s most-

wanted terrorist. Replacing bin Laden, who founded al-Qaida more than two decades ago and masterminded 9/11, may be no easy task. Analysts say the choice will likely depend on how the terror organization views its goals and priorities in the post-bin Laden age. The revolt across the Arab world over the past few months was driven by aspirations for Western-style democracy, not the al-Qaida goal of a religiously led state spanning the Muslim world. And as al-Qaida struggles to prove its relevance, the group has become increasingly decentralized and prone to internal disputes. “You almost have to start with the question of ‘Can he be replaced?’ said Lt. Col. Reid Sawyer, the director of the Countering Terrorism Center.

al amendment “allows the person that the people elected to be in charge.” Rep. Ray Rapp, D-Madison, said he’s worried the bill would create an “education czar” and upset the education governance that has given the governor, Legislature and the public a place at the table. Appointed board members serve staggered eightyear terms, subject to confirmation by the General Assembly. A political tug of war over the superintendent’s powers has gone on for more than a decade. The General Assembly has twice come close to letting voters decide through a referendum whether to have the superintendent appointed by the state board or chosen by ballot. Current Superintendent June Atkinson declined to comment on the legislation, according to a spokeswoman who didn’t give an explanation. Atkinson has seen her authority be diminished and restored since taking the superintendent’s post in 2005. In early 2007, the board hired then-Gov. Mike Easley’s former education adviser to become deputy superintendent and run the department, leaving Atkinson with few duties. In early 2009, Perdue named Bill Harrison as her choice for board chairman, with a new title of chief executive officer of the state’s schools. Atkinson sued, and a judge ruled Atkinson had the constitutional powers to be the day-to-day administrator of the state’s education bureaucracy. Harrison remained only board chairman.

RALEIGH (AP) — The decades-old debate over who should lead North Carolina’s public education system returned to the General Assembly on Tuesday through a bill that would shift authority away from the State Board of Education to the statewide elected superintendent. The House Education Committee discussed a Republican measure asking voters in 2012 to amend the state constitution to take power from the State Board of Education, nearly all of whose members are appointed by the governor. The board would become an advisory panel, and eight of the 11 appointed members would be chosen by the House speaker and Senate president pro tempore. The state constitution says the board, not the superintendent, supervises and administers the public schools. The superintendent is named as the board’s chief administrative officer and secretary. The Legislature decides the extent of the superintendent’s duties, which have ebbed and flowed over the past 15 years depending on the balance of power among lawmakers, the governor and the superintendent. Rep. Bryan Holloway, RStokes, the bill’s primary sponsor, told the committee most voters already think the superintendent is in charge of the state’s schools and its 1.5 million students, but that’s not true. “Why are we denying the people of this state their right to influence and run the state’s education system?” Holloway asked the panel, adding that the constitution-

TUNICA, Miss. (AP) — The bulging Mississippi River rolled into the fertile Mississippi Delta on Tuesday, threatening to swamp antebellum mansions, wash away shotgun shacks, and destroy fields of cotton, rice and corn in a flood of historic proportions. The river took aim at one of the most poverty-stricken parts of the country after cresting before daybreak at Memphis, Tenn., just inches short of the record set in 1937. Some low-lying neighborhoods were inundated, but the city’s high levees protected much of the rest of Memphis. Over the past week or so in the Delta, floodwaters along the rain-swollen river and its backed-up tributaries have already washed away crops, forced many people to flee to higher ground and closed some of the dockside casinos that are vital to the state’s economy. But the worst is yet to come, with the crest expected to roll through the Delta over the next few days.

• February 2008 — Barber was found passed out in his car near the corner of Sherrills Ford and Long Branch roads. His blood alcohol content was .18, more than twice the legal limit of .08. • June 2008 — Barber pleaded guilty to driving while impaired, and a judge sentenced him to two years of probation. Barber later said the incident led him to discover he is diabetic. • May 2010 — Barber resigned from his job as a teacher amid allegations he was drunk in a sixth-grade classroom at Southeast Middle School. Former District Attorney Bill Kenerly later said there were no criminal violations involving students and that Barber could not be “successfully prosecuted” for other crimes based on blood-alcohol test results obtained by the Rowan-Salisbury School System.

Four bulldog pups missing from kennel PILOT MOUNTAIN (AP) — A Surry County couple is looking for four English Bulldog puppies taken from their home that they say are worth up to $3,500 each. Amy and Tim Cook say 5 five-week-old dogs had not been weaned or given their first round of shots when they were taken sometime after midnight Monday. The Cooks said they already had accepted deposits on two of the dogs that were stolen.The thief left the mother dog and one pup. The brown and white dogs are known to be particularly difficult to breed, which is one reason their puppies sell for so much.

Barber subsequently admitted to battling with alcoholism but refused to address the allegations and insisted he resigned “to pursue other opportunities.” • April 10 — Salisbury Police took a report from an employee at a Jake Alexander Boulevard convenience store that someone stole a $2.99 bottle of fortified wine and drank it in the men’s bathroom. Barber was identified as a suspect. Because of Barber’s position as a county commissioner, the case has been turned over to the SBI for investigation, the N.C. Department of Justice confirmed last week. He has not been charged. • Sunday — Barber was charged with driving while impaired and failing to maintain lane control after he crashed his car into a ditch along Graham Road at N.C. 150, according to the N.C. State Highway Patrol.

you and I would be punished. If anything, he should have even higher standards.” For about a year, she said, Barber has visited the convenience store regularly — sometimes twice a day — to buy fortified wine. “We never asked questions, but he obviously had a problem,” Hinson said. Hinson said she and her staff never smelled alcohol on Barber, and if they had, they would not have sold it to him. He had visited the store as recently as last week. According to the report from the N.C. State Highway Patrol, Barber was north-

bound on Graham Road on Sunday evening when he crossed the center line and ran off the left side of the road. Barber then reportedly turned, crossed both lanes again and ran off the right side of the road, where his red Ford Focus went into a ditch and stopped near N.C. 150. Because he refused a breath test at the scene, Barber’s blood was drawn for testing and his driver’s license was automatically revoked for 30 days. Contact reporter Karissa Minn at 704-797-4222.

to a high standard, but “they’re human also” and will have their problems. “If it’s not really compromising his ability to make decisions (on the board), I don’t see the issue,” Peeler said. “If he is an alcoholic, I would suggest that he needs to get help and see about some treatment.” Amber Hinson, manager of the Exxon gas station at the corner of U.S. 70 and U.S 601, said Barber should step down because other people would not get away with his actions. “He’s a nice guy, and I think it’s awful,” Hinson said. “But if it was anyone else,

MANTEO (AP) — Smoke from a 21,000-acre fire in Dare County is showing up on NASA satellite images and has traveled as far west as the Raleigh-Durham area, state air quality officials said Tuesday. The North Carolina Division of Air Quality issued air quality alerts Tuesday for coastal areas between Nags Head and Wilmington and is discouraging outdoor exercise anywhere the air appears cloudy or smells of smoke. “We’ve been getting calls from the Triangle about smoky smells out of the east,” said Tom Mather, a spokesman for the air quality division. “And we’ve measured particulate pollution in the Raleigh area that are higher than normal, although not what we would consider unhealthy.” NASA satellite pictures taken Monday showed smoke trailing off the coast over the Atlantic Ocean. Mather says winds have since shifted, blowing more of the smoke toward the state’s interior. The fire was discovered Thursday about 2 p.m. in the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is largely forested wetlands and bog, which creates a denser amount of smoke than a typical wildfire, Mather said. Firefighters have been dumping water from aircraft onto the fire and using heavy machinery to clear potential fuel from the surrounding area. More than a dozen fire engines from area companies are also on site.

he can do his job right now.” He said the board should change the rule that no member can be forced to resign unless convicted of a felony. Annie Smith, of Granite Quarry, said Barber may need to “seek rehabilitation,” and he should send a message that his behavior is unacceptable. “I think he’s sending the wrong message to young people, particularly as we’re moving toward prom time

and we’re trying to promote, ‘Don’t drink and drive,’ ” Smith said. She said public officials need to be role models for their community. “I think he should resign as a good faith statement to the fact that you don’t get away with drinking and driving,” Smith said. “It’s dangerous and could take lives.” But some people said Barber doesn’t need to step down if he can serve the county well as a commissioner. Woodleaf resident David Peeler said elected officials should hold themselves


Residents OPINIONS say Barber should seek help • Stan Berkshire, Salisbury “I guess he needs to get treatment. If he doesn’t get treatment, then they should ask him to step down. I think he’s a good county commissioner, BERKSHIRE and he does well, but just like any disease it’s causing a lot of havoc in his personal life.” • Ethel Vinson, Salisbury “I think he needs to resign. I really do. ... I think a person in a high position should be a lot more responsible than that, because what’s that telling us? That it’s okay to drink and drive? I lost my hip in a car accident to someone that was irresponsible.” • Angela Ramsey, Salisbury “Anybody who is in a position so highly respected as a commissioner should lead by example. ... He should step down and also s e e k some help. RAMSEY I work for the Department of Corrections, and I see it every day. If you don’t get help, and if you don’t admit that you have a problem, it’s just a downward spiral.” • Connie Peacock, Granite Quarry “If he works to take care of his problem, that’s good, but after all the things that have accumulated I don’t think he should still be a county commissioner. I don’t think PEACOCK he’s a good role model.” • Richard McAfoose, Granite Quarry “If he can straighten himself out and get into a program, I don’t think (he needs to resign). ... He should get help. That doesn’t mean he can’t make MCAFOOSE good decisions, and it doesn’t mean he’s a bad person. He just has a problem.”

Have you ever sat, staring at your nine bottles of barbecue sauce and thought to yourself: How am I going to use all of these? Working barbecue sauce into your everyday recipes is easier than you think. After five months of trial and error, creating recipes for the Salisbury Barbecue Festival, I’ve learned enough to take the guesswork out of it. With just a few simple guidelines you can spice up your dishes in no time. If a recipe calls for ERWIN vinegar, North Carolinastyle barbecue sauce can be replaced on a 1 to 1 ratio. Tomato-based barbecue sauces can be used to replace some of the water or mayonnaise in most recipes. DO NOT use barbecue sauce to replace milk or cream, or add to cream or milk contents. Its acidity will curdle the cream and make ricotta cheese if you at-

Everything tastes better with


sauce tempt to heat the mixture. If it can be made with shredded chicken, it can be made with pulled pork. If you want to add a kick to your cocktails or homemade drinks, try adding barbecue sauce to your simple syrup. (Recipe to follow) In five months of recipe trial and error, I’ve come through with a few favorites to share. Updating homemade pickles, jelly, whiskey sours, eggs benedict and pizzas has never been easier, not to mention tastier.

Allow to cool. Now, how can you use it? You can replace the regular simple syrup in a cocktail, as I did for a whiskey sour (which I’ve been assured was quite tasty), or you can add it to sodas and lemonades.

BBQ Simple Syrup

Pour the bourbon, lemon juice, and sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Shake well. Strain into a chilled sour glass.

Make healthy selections when eating out This week we will identify how to make healthy choices when eating out. Eating away from home used to be an everyonce-in-a-while occasion; you may have eaten out on your birthday or other special event. Today, however, more and more meals are eaten away from home in restaurants. The number of people who eat at least one away-fromhome food or beverage in the course of a day has increased dramatically over the past 20 years. On any given day, alTOI most half of DEGREE all adults in the United States will eat a restaurant meal. The fact that we eat out at restaurants more often has a significant influence on what we eat and how much we eat. Consider these questions for a moment: How often do you eat out? Have you ever thought about what eating out usually means? It means that you will more than likely have: • Larger portions. • More calories and fat. • Fewer fruits and vegetables. • Fewer whole grains.

• Fewer low-fat dairy products. • Less fiber. Don’t get me wrong; there is nothing wrong with eating out on occasion, but a growing body of evidence suggests that when we eat out, we are likely to eat more calories than we need and people who eat out more often are more likely to be at an unhealthy weight. But that doesn’t have to be the case — there are some ways to avoid this. When you are eat out you need to have some strategies in place to help you eat healthy when you are eating away from home. Prepare before you go: • Check the menu before you go so you can plan what you will order (get the menu from the Internet or from the restaurant). • Check the restaurant Web site for nutrition information. Since restaurant preparation varies from restaurant to restaurant, what is a smart choice at one restaurant may not be a smart choice at another. • Eat less during other meals when you know you will be going out to eat. • Choose a restaurant that you know offers low-calorie options. • Choose a restaurant that

will allow you to share your meal. Think before you order: • Think about how hungry you are: very hungry, hungry, not so hungry. • Read the menu carefully. Try not to order more food than you need. Control portions: • Split an entrée. • Order an appetizer as an entrée. • Take part of your meal home. You may want to ask for the to-go container at the beginning of your meal so you are not tempted to eat more than you need. • Don’t order the largest burger, fries or drink. If you do, share with a friend or family member. Choose healthier options: • Avoid menu items that use words like: crispy, creamy, sautéed, pan-fried, buttery, breaded, sauced or stuffed. These menu items will generally be higher in calories and fat. • Choose simple foods. Generally, the more we do to food during preparation, the more calories and fat are added. A simple chicken breast may be a good choice, but adding bacon and cheese adds lots of calories. • Choose simple grilled or broiled seafood, chicken, pork

or beef with no sauce or sauce on the side. Healthy Options: Order it the way you want it. Don’t be afraid to ask for it prepared differently than the menu description or to ask for different side items. For example, if you don’t see a simple grilled chicken breast on the menu but you do see chicken dishes with cheese or sauce, ask if you can have a chicken breast prepared with just herbs or plain. Ask if there is anything you can substitute, such as a small salad, steamed vegetables or baked potato. Choosing low-calorie condiments is one way to cut back — choose mustard instead of mayonnaise on sandwiches. Try salsa with a baked potato instead of sour cream or butter. Choose entrées with lots of fruits and vegetables. Choose pasta dishes with tomato sauce instead of cream sauce. What to skip: • Breadbasket – you may end up consuming hundreds of calories before you even get

your food. One garlic breadstick can have as many as 150 calories. • Dessert. Most desserts at restaurants are high in calories. Instead order one dessert for the table and have one bite. Order sorbet or fresh fruit, or have a small piece of chocolate at home. • Buffets and all-you-caneat restaurants. Many foods are offered, and you are allowed to use as many plates as you want. Eating out doesn’t have to add extra pounds to your waistline, but remember what Winston Churchill said: “He who fails to plan is planning to fail”

during World War II. In order to come out victorious you have to have a plan when you go in your favorite restaurant or you are setting yourself up for failure! Try it... you will be amazed at what you will find. Have a good week. Don’t forget to select a strategy (from this weeks topic). Next week our topic will be move strong.

Farmers Market has plenty of greens Last Saturday, extension agent Toi Degree demonstrated how to prepare greens in 20 minutes or less, including washing and chopping. Correll Farm and Cress Farm provided the vegetables. The biggest hit was braised kohlrabi, a strange looking vegetable whose name means “turnip cabbage.” The bulb can be eaten cooked or raw. David Correll said the leafy portion is cooked like cabbage. Toi has recipes and an informational pamphlet which you can obtain by contacting the Extension Office (704-216-8970). Several of the recipes are on the Salisbury Farmers Market Website, Local cole crops, lettuces, radishes, onions and strawberries will continue to be available this week. Each week something new from local gardens appears. Cherries and blueberries will be available within the next week. There is

a nice selection of vegetables from South Carolina and Texas at the market as well. Correll Farms continues to have a wide variety of lettuces. They also have cabbage, cauliflower and swiss chard. Spring beets and more favorites are coming soon. Cress Farms, Eagle Farms and Miller Farms have lettuce, strawberries, onions, and cabbage. Mr. Cress is back at the market with his smile and stories. Country Gardens has vegetable plants and herbs, along with cole crop vegetables. Kraus Family Farms offers lettuces, goat cheese, granola and baby squash. Dawn’s Greenhouse, Country Garden Greenhouse and Bluebird Acres Farm have an array of herb plants. It’s a great time to select herbs to plant near your kitchen. Bluebird Acres Farm also has annuals and some interesting perennials. Garrett Owen has a great selection of unusual annuals. It is good to see him back. Dawn’s Greenhouse will

have tart pie cherries this week. She says the trees are loaded and hopes to be able to provide cherries for several weeks. The Bread Basket, How Sweet It Is! and Carla Anne’s continue to surprise buyers with loaf breads, pastries and pies and tarts. Carla Anne’s and the Bread Basket have small loaves of yeast and sour dough bread for those who cannot eat a larger loaf between market days. For your meat needs, stop by Wild Turkey Farms or T&D Charolais Beef. The Bread Basket, Wild Turkey Farms and other vendors have free range eggs. The Salisbury Farmers Market is open Wednesday from 7 a.m -1 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m.-noon at the corner of Bank and S. Main streets in downtown Salisbury. Visit the website for complete information of what is available at the market, recipes and information about the vendors.


BY SUE DAVIS For The Salisbury Post

Homefix: Humidity control the best way to prevent mold Q: Your recent article about flooding of home foundations was helpful, but you briefly mentioned mold problems that might occur with the flooding. Could you explain in more detail what you meant? A: Mold is a living organism that thrives in wet or even damp environments. The food source for mold is generally cellulose materials such as the paper on drywall, wood products or paints on concrete blocks. It can even appear on the surface of metal if an oily residue has accumulated over the years. Basically, a house and its contents are a food source for mold. Many people have the misconception that molds can be cleaned with household bleach. When you try, the immediate result you see is that the molds disappear when the bleach is applied. But what you don’t see is that the underlying root system of this living organism is unaffected by the bleach, and the molds will reappear within a few days. You can’t clean mold; it must be removed from the premises. In the case of moldinfested drywall, paneling and acoustical ceiling tiles, the damaged areas should be cut out and discarded. If the mold is on the wood floor system or studs of a home, the wood should be sanded to remove the root system, and then a mold-treatment chemical applied. You do not often see mold on older homes with plastered walls, but it will appear on the paint on the plaster. In that case, the paint should be scraped off to remove the root system before repainting.

If there is mold on wood furniture, it should be sanded before applying a protective finish coat to the wood. Upholstered furniture and leather products should be discarded. Clothing, drapes and bed coverings can be dry-cleaned or washed to remove the mold spores. Mold usually does not appear on fabrics, but they can carry mold spores that can be transferred to cellulose and wood products of the home. Wet or damp carpeting should be removed to allow the woodfloor surface to dry. After the carpeting is removed and the floor is dry, the mold spores can be sanded from the exposed wood before new floor coverings are installed. Vinyl floor coverings also must be removed if you notice dark spots forming under the finished surface of the vinyl. Try not to confuse decay damage in wood with mold. Mold affects the surface of the wood; decay affects the integrity of the wood and causes structural damage. It’s easy to test wood for mold by pressing a screwdriver against the discolored area. If the wood is covered with mold, it will have some resistance to the probe. If the wood is decayed, the probe will easily pass through the surface and into the heart of the wood. In most cases, decayed wood should be replaced using pressure-treated lumber. If you have a large mold problem in your home, it should be professionally mitigated and the humidity in that area of the home should be mechanically controlled with a dehumidifier or an opening from the airconditioning duct system. The most important control

for mold in any home is humidity control. Keep the area dry, because without moisture, molds might be present, but they cannot thrive. For more information on mold, visit mold/.

10 students arrested after food fight HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) — Authorities said 10 students were arrested after a food fight broke out in the cafeteria at Lovejoy High School south of Atlanta. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported the food fight began Tuesday morning, and police officers who were on campus dealing with another matter tried to halt it. Clayton County Police Officer Phong Nguyen said a few students didn’t want to stop the food fight. He said one student jumped on the back of a police officer, and another student began cursing at another officer. Nguyen said one of the officers deployed pepper foam during the melee. Authorities said two of the students were charged with simple battery, obstruction, disorderly conduct and disruption of a public school. Seven other students were also arrested and released to their parents.

Collect a valuable harvest — rainwater BY JOE LAMP’L

Butterball donates turkeys for tornado victims GARNER (AP) — North Carolina-based Butterball says it’s donated more than 18,000 pounds of turkey to charitable organizations in North Carolina and Alabama to help victims of tornadoes and other severe weather in the two states. Butterball donated more than 8,000 pounds of turkey products to the West Alabama Food Bank, which serves nine counties where a tornado touched down. The company also provided more than 7,500 pounds to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina and more than 2,500 pounds to Warren’s Chapel Original Free Will Baptist Church in Micro. Butterball has its headquarters in Garner and produces more than 1 billion pounds of turkey each year.

Minimize dependence on local water supplies by collecting and storing rain from your roof. tomed bowl 6 inches deep. The bottom should be fairly level, and the sides gently sloped. Use the dug-out soil to make a retaining berm on the downhill side of a sloped area. Use plants that do well in wet soil but can also tolerate very dry conditions. Try perennial iris, black-eyed Susan, cardinal flower, astilbe and spiked gay feather, along with grasses like panicum, carex or sedge. Mulch with a layer of bark or gravel to keep down weeds and stabilize the soil. Rainwater is abundant just about everywhere. With a little ingenuity and some elbow grease, you can harvest this precious resource free for the taking. (Joe Lamp’l, host of “Growing a Greener World” on PBS, is a Master Gardener and author.

ter the barrels are all full? Divert the rest of the water into a rain garden. A rain garden is just a deep depression that collects runoff from impervious surfaces like roofs and driveways and lets it soak slowly into the ground. They’re planted with shrubs and perennials and maintained like any other landscaped area of your yard. Place the garden at least 10 feet from the foundation, and no more that 30 feet from the downspout. Avoid wells, septic systems and low areas that always seem wet; they probably don’t have the loamy or sandy soil that will percolate water properly. To test, dig a 6-inch hole and fill it with water. If the water is still standing 24 hours later, choose another spot. A typical rain garden needs about 75 to 100 square feet of collecting area, so plan on a 10- by 8-foot flat-bot-


With the price of oil and gasoline skyrocketing, and no end in sight, we’re all becoming painfully aware of just how fragile our resources really are. Demand grows every day, but supplies don’t. The same is true for another vital but limited resource — water. Regional droughts are always with us. Today, seasonal water rationing is routine in many parts of the country, making it tough to keep a garden. At some point, many of us will be forced to conserve water. Fortunately, there’s a timetested technique for collecting and storing water that anyone can use: harvesting rainwater. By collecting rain from your roof during wet months and storing it in barrels or tanks, you can create an alternative supply to keep the landscape green without depending on municipal water. Rainwater doesn’t have the chemicals found in city water, either. It’s perfect for lawns, flowerbeds and vegetable gardens. Collectors can be as simple as a rain gutter, downspout and barrel. There are complete kits available from garden-supply stores, catalogs and the Internet, but you can make your own with just a few simple components. Before getting started, always check local building codes to be sure that rain-collection systems are approved in your area. First, install a wire-mesh or plastic gutter screen where the vertical downspout joins the horizontal gutter. This will help keep roof debris out of the system. Next, select a collection barrel. Gardening stores sell 55- to 75-gallon plastic rain barrels, complete with leaf screens and spouts, for $50 to $250. If you use a recycled barrel, select one that’s been used for food storage rather than any kind of chemical. For safety, barrels must have a sturdy cover that can take the weight of a child who might climb on it. To keep out mosquitoes and small animals, screen any openings. During winter months, barrels should be drained or kept only three-quarters full to allow freezing water to expand. Install a heavy-duty plastic drain spigot that can be “welded” into the barrel wall with waterproof plastic cement. Select one with common-size threads that can attach to an ordinary garden hose, and locate it as low as possible on the side of the barrel. Place the barrel on a raised platform to make room under the spigot for a watering can or hose attachment, and you’re ready to water. You could harvest about 500 gallons of water off a typical 1,000-square-foot roof in a storm that produced even 1 inch of rain. So what to do af-

In double boiler, mix egg

yolks, lemon juice, salt and Worcestershire sauce. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can hold a small saucepan over a steaming pot of water. The saucepan should be suspended, and not touch the boiling water. Slowly stir in a cup of melted butter, two tablespoons at a time. Once all butter is stirred in, stir in barbecue sauce, remove from heat and place a cover over the sauce. To poach the eggs, bring 2 inches of water to boil in a large pan, and add vinegar. Crack open eggs directly into the water, cover, and let cook for 3 minutes. Egg whites should be set, and yolk should be slightly soft. Remove with slotted spoon. Warm barbecue pork in a skillet.

Place jars, lids and rings on a cookie sheet in the oven, and leave for at least 20 minutes. In a large sauce pan, combine the apple juice,barbecue sauce and pectin over high heat. Stir constantly. When the mixture boils, quickly stir in sugar. Continue stirring until the mixture boils for at least 2 minutes. Check the set every two minutes until the jelly has reached the level you prefer. Remove from the heat. Skim off any foam that may have formed on the top of the jelly. Pour the hot jelly into sterilized jars. Be sure to leave a fourth of an inch from the top unfilled. Put lids and rings onto the jars, wiping off any jelly that may have gotten on the sides. Seal firmly and invert, lid side down on the counter for one hour. Return to rightside-up and store.

BBQ Pork and Caramelized Onion Pizza created for the Salisbury Barbecue Festival 1 recipe pizza dough (see next recipe, make the day before) 1 C. shredded reduced-fatshredded-cheddar-jack pepper jack cheese 1 C. shredded sharp cheddar cheese 11⁄ 2 C. pulled pork 1 ⁄ 2 C. barbecue sauce 1 ⁄ 2 C. onion, cut into rings 1 tablespoon sugar olive oil Place the pizza stone or tile onto the bottom of a cold oven and turn the oven to its highest temperature, about 500 degrees. If the oven has coils on the oven floor, place the tile onto the lowest rack of the oven. Split the pizza dough into two equal parts using a knife or a dough scraper. Wet hands barely with water and rub them onto the countertop to dampen the surface. Knead the dough gently a few times. Then cover one ball with a tea towel and rest for 30 minutes. Repeat the steps with the other piece of dough. While the dough is resting, dip the thin slices of onion

into sugar and place on a large skillet. Cook on a medium heat. Cook until the onions becomes a light brown. Remove from heat. Sprinkle the cornmeal onto the peel and place the dough onto the pizza peel or flat baking sheet. Using your hands, form a lip around the edges of the pizza. Stretch the dough into a round disc, rotating after each stretch. Toss the dough in the air if you dare. Shake the pizza on the peel to be sure that it will slide onto the pizza stone or tile. Dress and bake the pizza immediately for a crisp crust or rest the dough for 30 minutes if you want a chewy texture. Brush the rim of the pizza with olive oil. Place half the pepper jack and cheddar cheese on the pizza, then sprinkle with half the pork. Drizzle with half the bbq sauce, and spoon caramelized onions onto the pizza. Place pizza onto pizza stone and cook for about 7 minutes

BBQ Pizza Dough Adapted from a recipe from Food Network ( the s/alton-brown/pizza-pizzasrecipe4/index.html).

Place the sugar, barbecue rub, salt, olive oil, water, 1 cup of flour, yeast, and remaining cup of flour into a standing mixer’s work bowl. Using the paddle attachment, start the mixer on low and mix until the dough just comes together, forming a ball. Lube the hook attachment with cooking spray. Attach the hook to the mixer and knead for 15 minutes on medium speed. Tear off a small piece of dough and flatten into a disc. Stretch the dough until thin. Hold it up to the light and look to see if the baker's windowpane, or taut membrane, has formed. If the dough tears before it forms, knead the dough for an additional 5 to 10 minutes. Roll the pizza dough into a smooth ball on the countertop. Place into a stainless steel or glass bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the bowl and toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 18 to 24 hours. (If making the pulled pork pizza, look above for the remainder of the instructions). Place the pizza stone or tile onto the bottom of a cold oven and turn the oven to its highest temperature, about 500 degrees F. If the oven has coils on the oven floor, place the tile onto the lowest rack of the oven. Split the pizza dough into 2 equal parts using a knife or a dough scraper. Flatten into a disk onto the countertop and then fold the dough into a ball. Wet hands barely with water and rub them onto the countertop to dampen the surface. Roll the dough on the surface until it tightens. Cover one ball with a tea towel and rest for 30 minutes. Repeat the steps with the other piece of dough. If not baking the remaining pizza immediately, spray the inside of a ziplock bag with cooking spray and place the dough ball into the bag. Refrigerate for up to 6 days.

Using ice scraper to chip away dried-up SpagettO’s Sometimes I receive tips from readers that conjure up funny images in my mind. I can just see our first tipster grabbing her ice scraper —still dressed in her business suit and high heels — throwing on a pair of goggles and MARY getting to HUNT work! • Scraping the SpaghettiO’s. When my children were young, one of their favorite after-school snacks was SpaghettiOs cooked in the microwave. Often I came home

from work to find dried-up SpaghettiOs all over the kitchen counter. I had a brainstorm and decided to use my ice scraper to chip off the mess. It worked beautifully. To this day, I keep an ice scraper in my junk drawer just for cleaning up dried-on messes. — Bonnie,

er the tick. (Petroleum jelly also works.) After covering the area, it only took two minutes for the tick to die. I had my daughter rub the rest of the balm into her skin because I knew the antibacterial properties would be beneficial. — Olivia,


• Garden light come inside. When our power went out, we were fine during the day, but because my husband is disabled, it’s important that we have light in the evening. Unfortunately, I was low on candles. Then I discovered a great light source in my own backyard: the sensor lights from our garden. They provided enough light for us un-

• Smothering tricks. My daughter was bitten by a tick while we were camping. Unfortunately, I didn’t have anything in my medical kit that would get the tick out of her skin. But I did have my Sunbreeze balm, which I use for clearing my sinuses. I knew I could use the balm to smoth-


til the power returned. — Anne, North Carolina

• Eggs in the rice cooker. I use my rice cooker to cook soft-boiled eggs. I get two paper towels really wet, scrunch them up and place them in the bottom of the rice cooker. I add eggs directly from the fridge, put the lid on and switch the rice cooker to “cook.â€? When the bell sounds, the eggs are done. For hardboiled eggs, I leave the lid on and wait another minute or two before removing them. — Merryl, Australia

• Plastic for picnics. When I would make my favorite tri-

fle dessert for a party or picnic, I used to bring it in my favorite glass bowl. I worried about it breaking, and it was a hassle for the host to have to return it. Now I buy clear plastic bowls and serving spoons at a dollar store. If it gets returned, fine, but if not, then I’m only out a buck or two. — Cheri, New York

• Transforming the grout. I had given up on my white grout ever looking good again. Then I stumbled upon grout paint at a home improvement store. I opted to paint my grout a chocolate brown color to complement the color of my tile. It was time-consum-

ing and labor-intensive but well worth the effort. — Terrie, Illinois

Shakespeare didn’t write college into this Juliet’s script Dear Amy: My daughter, a senior in high school, has fallen madly and passionately in love with a boy in her class. The feeling is mutual. After three months, the level of intensity makes Romeo and Juliet look like amateurs. They are never apart, and she has emotionally cut herself off from the rest of the family. It’s as if the rest of the world no longer exists. ASK I am indifAMY ferent to the boy, and get along with him just fine, though I am not thrilled about where this is headed. He has been accepted to a college out West. We live in the South.

My daughter has decided that rather than go to college (she has offers at three schools), she is moving out West with him and will get a job, set up house and live happily ever after. She turns 18 this summer, and legally there is nothing I can do to stop her. Her father and I are distraught but feel that if we try and stop this she will go anyway and turn her back on us for good. His parents don’t have a problem with any of this. She has no work experience, is an immature 17-yearold and will not even consider other options. Basically she will not listen to anything we say. Before this romance we had a great relationship with her, but now she barely even speaks to us. Should we just let her go and find out for herself the

hard way? The only option seems to be locking her up in her room and throwing away the key. Help! — Anguished Mom Dear Mom: Don’t lock your daughter in the tower. She’ll just launch into a tearful soliloquy. And don’t be indifferent to the boy. Get to know him as well as you possibly can. I suggest you force yourself toward this relationship to keep the door open. You and your husband should have a meeting with the two of them. Ask them to outline their plans for the future. Listen carefully. No scowling. Say, “Juliet, you know we don’t like the idea of your not going to college and moving so far away. We are very worried you won’t be able to support yourself. But it’s your

One bottle I offer to the host to present for the group’s opinion. The other bottle I insist is a gift to keep for later, in the event the host approves of the wine at dinner. — Jim in Winnipeg, Manitoba

Save burned muffins: I made the recipe for 6-Week Raisin Bran Muffins (you can store the premade batter in the refrigerator for up to six weeks and make them as you need/want them). I burned them. The first batch was somewhat edible, and the second batch had severe blackened/burned areas. I didn’t want to waste them, so I removed the baking papers, scraped off the burned parts on the top, cut the charred bottoms off and made bread pudding with them. These are estimated amounts, so bear with me.

• Budget hotel meals: I read where you gave ideas on hotel eating. I worked as a travel escort for a local travel agency for more than 15 years and have a few ideas to add to your comprehensive ones. I learned to read from the right side of the menu (where the prices are) and found that I could easily stay on budget for at least one meal daily by doing so and ordering an appetizer and dessert or a child’s meal if possible.

Dear Speller: You can’t repeat an error to validate someone else. In your business correspondence, you should always use correct spellings. If, for instance, a client wants to communicate about her “soffit� but spells it “sophet,� you reply by saying,

“The soffit was installed yesterday and looks great.� To do otherwise would be exceedingly silly.

Dear Amy: I own a business, and in emailing short notes back and forth with my clients about projects we have under way for them, my clients will sometimes misspell words. These aren’t typos, but rather words they didn’t know how to spell. Because the emails are

usually short ones, when I reply I feel awkward spelling the word correctly (I worry they will think I’m “correcting� them). To date I’ve been able to avoid the whole thing by using a different word in my reply. I wondered how you would handle such a situation. Or am I fretting over nothing? — Business Speller

Fairway to Heaven Golfers give Salisbury fourth state title of year

ryan bisesi/SALISBURY POST

Senior Roy Dixon accepts the championship trophy as Salisbury Hornets, from left, coach Dale Snyder, Alex Lee and Alex Nianouris look on.

Hornets win 2A championship by 24 strokes BY RYAN BISESI

Roy Dixon wouldn’t argue that playing on the best team in the state was better than being the best individual before Tuesday and he certainly didn’t refute it at about 3:15 p.m. Dixon, last year’s 2A individual champion, didn’t repeat this year, but instead grasped another trophy and carried a similar smile. “I got the individual last year and that ryan bisesi/SALISBURY POST was awesome, but I didn’t want to leave Freshman Eric Edwards shot without a team championship,” Dixon said. a 71 on Tuesday.

That wish was fulfilled Tuesday as Salisbury’s state championship warpath continued unabated. It did so not on the field or court but on the links, where they came tantalizingly close last year. After being state runner up to North Lincoln in 2010, Salisbury’s boys golf team swapped places with North, finishing with a 287 on Tuesday for a total score of 580 to capture the 2A state title at Longleaf Golf Course and Country Club in Southern Pines. Salisbury shot a 293 Monday along with North to set the stage for an apparent dramatic final day. Tuesday, the Hornets gained a 12-stroke lead after nine

holes and cruised to the school’s fourth state title in a team sport this school year. The 580 was the third-best team score for an N.C. High School Athletic Association tournament, tying Raleigh Broughton’s score in 1998, ironically the last year Salisbury was state champ. The Hornets were 4-under on the front nine and 7-over on a stout back nine. “We really showed that you can’t win this title with two or three good golfers,” said Salisbury coach Dale Snyder, minutes removed from a ice-water bath via his players. “You’ve got to have five, six

NASCAR walking a fine line in policing



LANDIS — A potential source of friction has become a positive for South Rowan’s baseball team this season. South coach Thad Chrismon has only 13 varsity players, but two are seniors whose best position is third base. Friendly competition between Jacob Dietz and Cory Deason has pushed both to perform well. They’ve formed an effective tagteam, with Dietz handling the hot corner and usually batting CHRISMON fourth, and Deason settling into the DH spot and usually hitting sixth. “It’s taken some adjustments after batting seventh or eighth last year and seeing a whole lot of fastballs,” Dietz said. “When you bat cleanup, they mix it up more. Lots of curves and sliders.” Good point. But Dietz will still carry a .367


Drivers fined

BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press


Third-baseman Jacob Dietz has had a good year as South’s cleanup man.

CHARLOTTE — The boys, it seems, are still having at it, and NASCAR, to no surprise, still has no defined line on its year-old policy of letting drivers settle their own scores. That’s the conundrum NASCAR leaders faced Monday as they huddled to review a pair of weekend altercations at Darlington Raceway that raised attention to the ratings-challenged series, but tested the limits of just how far feuds should be permitted to play out. The first, between Juan Pablo Montoya and Ryan Newman, happened behind

closed doors with only NASCAR’s top officials present to witness a Friday meeting that “did not go as well as we had hoped.” Rumor has it that Newman punched Montoya in the meeting, a claim neither driver would confirm or deny. But that NASCAR took the unprecedented step to issue a statement — one that promised further scrutiny of the two drivers — was confirmation enough that something bad went down in the tight confines of NASCAR’s at-track office. It turned out to be just the opening act. Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick, who have a long history of not getting along, then tangled on the track in the closing laps of Saturday

CHARLOTTE — Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick were fined $25,000 apiece and put on probation Tuesday by NASCAR for their actions on pit road at Darlington Raceway. The probation for all NASCAR-sanctioned events runs through June 15, a span that includes four Sprint Cup Series championship races and the non-points $1 million All-Star event. It also includes Friday night’s Truck Series race at Dover — an event Harvick only entered after his confrontation with Busch. Probation is typically no more than a verbal warning that NASCAR will not tolerate any further misconduct during the desig-

Rose, Deng explode in Game 5 for Chicago CHICAGO (AP) — Derrick Rose scored 33 points, Luol Deng added 23 and the Chicago Bulls beat Atlanta Hawks 95Bulls 95 the 83 in Game 5 of the Hawks 83 Eastern Conference semifinals on Tuesday night to take a 3-2 lead. Taj Gibson had 11 points — all in the fourth quarter. Rose also scored 11 in the fourth, and the Bulls pounded the Hawks 26-15 in the quarter. Game 6 is Thursday in Atlanta, and Chicago is one win from its first conference finals appearance since 1998, when Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen wrapped up their second championship three-peat.

Rose showed why he is the league’s youngest MVP, hitting 11 of 24 shots and finishing with nine assists. It was a big improvement over Game 4 when he needed 32 shots to score 34 points. That was enough to offset another strong performance by Atlanta’s Jeff Teague. Filling in for the injured Kirk Hinrich, he delivered his third 21-point game of the series. Josh Smith scored 16 points for the Hawks, while Joe Johnson had 15 and Al Horford added 12 points and 10 rebounds. It hasn’t been an easy postseason for the Bulls after they stormed to a leagueleading 62 wins. They got pushed by Indiana in the first round and are getting

all they can handle from the Hawks, yet they are in a good position thanks to a strong fourth quarter. They led by as many as 15 points in the first quarter but were trailing 70-69 early in the fourth when they went on a 9-0 run. Rose started it when he drove to his left for a layup, fed Gibson a no-look pass in transition for a three-point play and added a layup that made it 78-70. Then, midway through the fourth, he drove for a three-point play that made it 85-76. Fans were screeching “MVP! MVP!” as he buried the free throw, and after Atlanta pulled within six, Chicago reeled eight straight to make it 93-79, with six points coming from Gibson.

Red Wings rally again, force Game 7 vs. Sharks DETROIT (AP) — Henrik Zetterberg and Valtteri Filppula Red Wings 3 scored less than two Sharks 1 minutes apart in the third period, and the Detroit Red Wings rallied again for a 31 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night, forcing a decisive seventh game after trailing 3-0 in the pulsating second-round series. San Jose must defend home ice Thursday night to avoid becoming the fourth NHL team to lose a best-of-seven series

after leading 3-0. San Jose’s Logan Couture scored early in the third period, but Zetterberg tied it with 9:22 remaining, and Filppula scored the winner with 7:28 left. Darren Helm added an empty-net goal. Every other game in the series was decided by one goal. Detroit scored the last three goals of Game 5 to win 4-3. The Red Wings are the second team this season to erase a 3-0 series hole. Chicago did it in the first round before

losing Game 7 at Vancouver. Philadelphia came all the way back last year in the second round, winning the final four games against Boston. Those recent successes make the task now seem much less daunting. Skating with confidence and desperation, the Red Wings outshot San Jose 4525, but they were on the verge of elimination after Couture batted a rebound out of midair and the puck trickled past goalie Jimmy Howard with 16:06 remaining.

The North Carolina 2A golf champion Salisbury Hornets are, from left, Coach Dale Snyder, Alex Lee, Alex Nianouris, Eric Edwards, Roy Dixon, Troy Beaver and Clark Alcorn.

GOLF FROM 1B good golfers and that’s what we’ve got. “We counted one double [bogey] today and other than that, these guys played lights out. I mean, Clark [Alcorn] shot a 74 and we didn’t count it. How much better do you want to get than that?” Salisbury personified team play as it lacked an eye-opening score, no one shot under par, but had five solid scores at or around par. Dixon, the only senior on the team, shot a 73 but his second-round performance was overshadowed by junior Alex Nianouris and freshman Eric Edwards, both of whom shot par for the day (71). Dixon was second in the individual with a 142 overall. After getting to know Snyder from various regional and state championship matches, North coach Mark Lackey anticipated another down-to-the wire finish after a neck-andneck first day. The Knights faltered with a 311 on Day 2 despite a 71 from Miller Capps and a 74 from Sam Goodnight, who was third in the individual. “Well, I guess we did battle them ... for a little while,” Lackey said with a laugh. “My hat’s off to Salisbury. They’re a heck of a team and may be the best team down here in all classifications. They’re a class act and so is Dale Snyder.” The back nine holes troubled Salisbury Monday, going 9-over on the par 71, 6,600-yard layout. On Tuesday, Edwards, the county champion as a freshman, set the pace with a teambest par 35 after the turn. “He’s amazing,” gushed Nianouris of Edwards. “We call him ‘the protege’ because he’s

front nine while juniors Nianouris and Troy Beaver each shot 35. The Hornets kept the foot on the gas with Nianouris managing a 36 and Dixon and Beaver getting 37s. Beaver just missed par with a 72. “After the front side, we were up by 12 shots and I’m like, ‘Don’t stop, don’t let

up,’ ” Snyder said. Dixon, a UNC Greensboro signee, couldn’t repeat his Monday finish where he tied Coalson with a 69. Coalson shot par on Tuesday for a 140 and the individual crown. “We all wanted him to win back-to-back,” Snyder said. “At the same time, I guaran-

tee this kid will tell you he’ll take this year over last year any day.” The 580 was a drastic improvement over last year’s championship at Keith Hills Country Club in Buies Creek, where Salisbury shot a 616, two strokes behind North. “We had the lead last year

and these guys, they remember that,” Snyder said. “They’re so talented, so mature, they didn’t need to be reminded of what happened last year.” “I think this year we were a lot more confident,” Dixon said. “We knew we had the talent to do it so we just went out and did what we had to do.”

Turgeon ready to lead Terps Associated Press

AssociAted press

Mark turgeon replaces Gary Williams at Maryland.

As the new basketball coach at the University of Maryland, Mark Turgeon hopes to experience the same kind of success he enjoyed at Texas A&M. The Terrapins are counting on him to do just that. Turgeon was hired on Monday night to succeed Gary Williams, who retired last week after a 22-year run at Maryland. The 46-year-old Turgeon leaves the Aggies after making four consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournament and going 97-40 in his four-year stay at College Station. “It was just too good an offer for me to pass on,” Turgeon said in a release. “The thing that made it the most difficult was the players. Those guys have done everything I’ve asked for four years and we’ve had a great ride.” Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson believes Turgeon has the ability to extend the winning tradition built by Williams, who won the national champi-

onship in 2002 and reached the NCAA tournament 14 times. Just as important, Williams ran a clean program and maintained tight control over his players. “We’re thrilled to bring Mark to the University, where I’m sure he will continue to build on the great legacy and success of Maryland Basketball,” Anderson said. “In Mark, we have brought one of the outstanding young coaches in the country.” Turgeon will be introduced at press conference on today at the Comcast Center, where Williams formally stepped down in an emotional ceremony. Turgeon joins the Terrapins and the Atlantic Coast Conference after earning Big 12 coach of the year honors with A&M in 2010 and 2011. He is the only coach in Big 12 history with at least 24 victories in each of his four seasons. Turgeon is 250-159 after 13 seasons overall as a head coach, including seven with Wichita State. He went 128-99 with the Shockers and reached the round of 16 in 2006.

UNC loses players

He began his head-coaching career at Jacksonville State, going 17-11 in his final season there (1999-2000) after going 8-18 in his first year. Turgeon was an assistant at Kansas for five seasons. He also played guard for the Jayhawks from 1984-87. He said leaving Texas A&M was one of the most difficult decisions he’s ever had to make. “Marriage was easy for me. I knew I was in love. Going to KU was easy, that’s where I always wanted to play college basketball,” he said. “Going to Wichita State was easy. Going to Texas A&M was an easy choice. Today was one of the hardest choices I’ve had to make because of the young men in that locker room.” But the challenge of coaching Maryland and competing in the ACC, against such powerhouses as Duke and North Carolina, was too hard to resist. “Maryland’s got a great basketball tradition,” Turgeon said. “It’s a gut feeling. I’m a blessed person to have the choice that I had to make today.”

CHAPEL HILL— Two North Carolina football players are transferring, a third has been kicked off the team and a fourth says he no longer plans to play the sport. Coach Butch Davis said Monday that defensive back Brendon Felder and linebacker Herman Davidson were transferring. Davis says Felder wants to play for a school closer to his Monroeville, Pa., home because his grandmother is sick. Felder redshirted as a freshman last year while Davidson played 13 games primarily as a backup. Davis also said defensive lineman Jared McAdoo was dismissed for violating unspecified team rules. He played 12 games as a redshirt freshman. Also, linebacker Shane Mularkey isn’t playing anymore. He had season-ending shoulder surgery after playing in the Tar Heels’ first two games last year. • HICKORY — LenoirRhyne has named Mike Houston its football coach. The school on Monday promoted him to succeed Fred Goldsmith, who announced his retirement last week after 45 seasons. Houston has been the Bears’ defensive coordinator for the past four seasons.

NFL NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Kevin Mawae believes there will be football in 2011. He just doesn't know when. Speaking in front of nearly 100 Music City business and civic leaders Tuesday, the president of the decertified NFL Players Association and former Tennessee Titans center tried to stay optimistic when talking about the collective bargaining agreement. "We sit here at a time of uncertainty and say, ‘When

will football be played?’ ” Mawae told members of the Exchange Club of Nashville. "My answer to you as fans is I don't know. My hope to you as the players association president is that I believe that we will play in 2011 but under what system I do not know.” • GARDEN HILLS, Minn. — The owners of the Minnesota Vikings said Tuesday the team's future is in the suburbs, announcing a deal with Ramsey County to collaborate on a $1.1 billion retractable-roof football stadium about 10 miles north of their current home at the Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis.

CHAD & BULLS DULUTH, Ga. — Chad Ochocinco now is going to try bull riding. The Cincinnati Bengals receiver who earlier this year had a tryout with Sporting Kansas City of Major League Soccer, has accepted a challenge from Professional Bull Riders chief operating officer Sean Gleason to ride a bull at the LucasOil Invitational this weekend in Duluth. Ochocinco will earn $10,000 if he rides a bull. If he can stay aboard for the required eight seconds, the PBR will give Ochocinco a new Ford F-150, as well as allow him to rename the bull. Gleason says Ochocinco is "a gifted athlete, but bull riding is a much different sport and climbing on the back of a bull in the chutes takes a little more than Twitter confidence, let alone calling for the gate (to open)."

Andrew Bynum listens to a question from the media.

NBA suspends Bynum The NBA notebook ... EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Lakers center Andrew Bynum has been suspended for five games next season for his flagrant foul on Dallas guard J.J. Barea in Los Angeles’ final playoff game. The NBA announced the suspension Tuesday, two days after Bynum was ejected for the foul late in the two-time defending champions’ 36-point loss to the Mavericks in Game 4. The league also fined Bynum $25,000 for ripping off his jersey while heading to the locker room, which means the suspension will cost Bynum more than $700,000. Bynum said his actions “don’t represent me, my upbringing, this franchise or any of the Laker fans out there that want to watch us and want us to succeed,” Bynum said. “I want to actually apologize to J.J. Barea for doing that. I’m just glad that he wasn’t seriously injured in the event. All I can say is, I’ve looked at (a replay), it’s terrible, and it definitely won’t be happening again.” MARATHON GAME OKLAHOMA CITY — Scott Brooks knows what he's up against in trying to keep his young, eager Okla-

homa City Thunder team off the basketball court for a whole day. Even if that day started with the final stretch of a triple-overtime playoff thriller, a round of postgame interviews and a flight that didn't get back to Oklahoma City until around 3:30 a.m. Less than 14 hours after their marathon 133-123 victory in Game 4 at Memphis, Serge Ibaka and Nate Robinson were out shooting and Kevin Durant and other teammates were in the building while Brooks met with reporters. PACERS NDIANAPOLIS — Larry Bird will get to see his rebuilding project through, after all. The Indiana Pacers announced Tuesday that they will keep Bird as team president after he met with owner Herb Simon in Los Angeles. BOBCATS CHARLOTTE — Charlotte Bobcats guard Gerald Henderson was undergoing surgery Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his left hip, a procedure that's expected to alleviate chronic knee pain. Henderson was having the surgery in Vail, Colo., where a specialist discovered the injury while examining his troublesome left knee.

job for us for two years when we needed him at second base, but third base is probably the better fit for him,” Chrismon said. Dietz agrees. “Third feels more natural to me than anywhere else,” he said. “It’s mostly reaction.” Offensively, Dietz’s role also has changed dramatically. Pitchers didn’t pay much attention to him in 2010 because they were too busy worrying about Maverick Miles and Blake Houston. This season, as South’s cleanup hitter, Dietz has been vital as the guy hitting behind sophomore catcher Eric Tyler. “Jacob’s been the guy we’ve asked to protect Eric in our lineup, and we knew, as a senior, that he could handle it,” Chrismon said. “He’s also been really good at helping our young infielders along. All young guys have their dips and downs, and he’s helped them stay positive.” Dietz struggled with his bat early this spring, getting off to a 1-for-14 start. Chrismon had to drop him in the lineup for two weeks, but an 11-for-18 stretch — five straight multi-hit games —

restored his confidence. Then he moved back up. “There’s been a lot more on my shoulders this year without Mav and Blake and Dylan Walker,” Dietz said. “I just had to adjust to more pressure.” Dietz has yet to homer this season, although he did belt a 385-foot triple to South’s distant right field in a game against Carson. That’s OK with Chrismon, who isn’t looking for homers from him. “When you try to hit homers, you tend to strike out and pop up,” Chrismon said. “We’ve asked Dietz to hit line drives, and he’s done a good job of that. I’m proud of how he’s played, and I’m proud any time one of our guys gets to go on in baseball.” With his college choice settled, Dietz is trading showcase baseball for American Legion. He’ll be a Legion rookie, but he’ll be an experienced rookie, and he could prove a big asset. One thing everyone agrees on is that he’s earned respect for the way he’s handled several new roles as a senior. “Dietz is a great friend,” Deason said. “You can’t ask for a better teammate.”

night’s race. Only Busch knows if the contact he had with Harvick, which led to Harvick teammate Clint Bowyer’s race-ending crash, was intentional. Busch claims it wasn’t, just one of those racing incidents he attributed to Harvick’s lack of on-track etiquette, but Harvick had no interest in calmly discussing the incident. So he stalked Busch after the checkered flag, stopping his car on pit road in front of Busch. Busch maybe could have driven around him, but instead pulled up to Harvick’s bumper. And when Harvick climbed from his car, approached Busch’s window, and as he leaned in to throw a punch, Busch bumped Harvick’s empty car enough to send it spinning into the wall. It cleared a path for Busch to drive away. Race fans love the drama, and the post-race fireworks far overshadowed the upset of Regan Smith — NASCAR’s equivalent of a No. 16 seed — beating points leader Carl Edwards — obviously, a No. 1 seed — to the finish in one of the most prestigious races of the season. In fact, the conversation the last two weeks has not been on the racing or the winners. It’s instead been centered on all the other nonsense: the Montoya-

FINES FroM 1c nated period, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. dismissed the idea either Busch or Harvick will race any differently while on probation. “Probation doesn’t change the way you’re going to drive because you’re still going to drive hard and race as hard as you can,” Earnhardt said Tuesday while promoting the new HD video board at Charlotte Motor Speedway. “Probation just means it’s obvious when things are intentional and things aren’t. If they go out of the box and do (postrace) things then probation becomes a problem. You can still race hard and get into your fair share of scrapes, and that’s a part of racing.” Busch and Harvick’s onand-off feuding resumed Saturday night after contact Busch had with Harvick led to Harvick wrecking with teammate Clint Bowyer late in the race. Afterward, Harvick waited for Busch and then positioned himself to park his car in front of Busch on pit road. Busch pulled onto Harvick’s bumper, Harvick climbed from his car and, just as he threw a punch into Busch’s window, Busch used his car to bump Harvick’s car out of the way. The empty car turned and hit the inside wall. No one was hurt, but Harvick’s crew members were running down pit road when the car hit the wall. “These penalties are a result of what occurred on pit road after the race was over,” said NASCAR

Newman scuffle that stretched from Richmond to Darlington, Martin Truex Jr. firing his crew over a botched final pit stop, Kurt Busch’s mid-race meltdown on his radio, and now another Busch vs. Harvick feud. There’s precedence in nearly every case. Robby Gordon drew season-long probation in March for socking Kevin Conway in the garage at Las Vegas, but Jeff Gordon and Jeff Burton both went unpunished for an on-track shoving match last November at Texas. When it comes to meetings in the hauler, , the sanctioning body took no action in 2008 when Tony Stewart allegedly popped Kurt Busch in front of series officials. Carl Edwards last season was the first driver to test the policy, which was somewhat accidentally coined “Boys, have at it,” by vice president of competition of Robin Pemberton. Edwards drove his damaged race car into the garage at Atlanta last spring, waited for his crew to repair it, then returned to the track to intentionally wreck Brad Keselowski. The accident send Keselowski’s car sailing into the fence, and NASCAR slapped Edwards with three races of probation. It’s not clear why NASCAR is so angry at Montoya and Newman, but the statement on the Friday meeting stressed “we’re not completely through with this issue.”

spokesman Kerry Tharp. “They are about maintaining a safe environment on pit road.” NASCAR did not penalize Ryan Newman and Juan Pablo Montoya for their actions in their ongoing disagreements. Their latest blowup began two weeks ago at Richmond, when Newman wrecked Montoya, and Montoya intentionally retaliated later in the race. A meeting between the two moderated by NASCAR at Darlington apparently grew heated — NASCAR said in a statement it “did not go as well as we had hoped” — and Newman is rumored to have punched Montoya. Neither driver would confirm or deny that a punch was thrown. Although NASCAR said it was still considering penalizing Newman and/or Montoya, Tharp said it wasn’t necessary. “We believe they received our message loud and clear that enough is enough,” Tharp said. NASCAR had to balance scolding the drivers for their behavior against its relaxed “Boys, have at it” policy the sanctioning body adopted last year. Strict punishment could discourage drivers from showing the raw emotion that fans respond to, but not responding at all could create a dangerous anything goes mentality. “I think NASCAR has to make themselves visible and tangible as some sort of ruling body,” Earnhardt said. “If they just kind of step back and let the idiots run the asylum, that’s not going to work out too well. Anytime we get out of hand, they need to step in.”

Mauer is making progress MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Joe Mauer says he’s made “a lot” of progress, regained strength in his legs and gotten back the 15 pounds he lost when he was sick. He’s still not ready, though, to target a date for getting back behind the plate for Minnesota. Mauer took some swings off soft tosses and worked out on the field before Tuesday’s game against Detroit, and manager Ron Gardenhire said the goal is for Mauer to take full batting practice with the team this week. But Mauer said he’s being careful not to rush back and risk doing more damage. He hasn’t tested his legs yet, however, by crouching or catching any pitches. “You’ve got to get back into baseball shape, things like that. I’ve still got some work to do, and I wish I knew when I would be back,” Mauer said. “I know everybody else out there wishes, too, but I’ve just got to keep going in the right direction.” Mauer has missed 24 games with a condition the Twins have called bilateral leg weakness. It was brought on by a light workload during spring training while he recovered from arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. He was stricken with a flulike viral infection that exacerbated the leg problem, and he’s been working his way back since the middle of April.

MIAMI — In a matchup of aces, Roy Halladay’s walk to Josh Johnson proved pivotal. Johnson scored the Florida Marlins’ first run, and they squeezed out another in the eighth inning to beat Halladay and the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 on Tuesday night. Johnson didn’t get the win, but he kept his team in the game against the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner, pitching seven innings and allowing only one run — on Ryan Howard’s eighth homer leading off the second. Chris Coghlan’s single in the eighth drove home the tiebreaking run, which was unearned following an error by shortstop Jimmy Rollins. Halladay (5-2) gave up only five hits in eight innings, but fell to 1-3 in his four matchups against Johnson. The loss ended Halladay’s streak of wins in 13 consecutive starts against NL East teams since July 5, 2010. Mike Dunn (3-2) pitched a perfect eighth for the win. Nationals 7, Braves 6 ATLANTA— Jason Marquis earned his 100th career win, backed by a pair of threerun homers from Laynce Nix and Jayson Werth, and Washington held off Atlanta. The Braves scored five runs in the eighth to nearly wipe out a 7-1 deficit, capped by Dan Uggla’s three-run homer. But Drew Storen got the final three out for his eighth save in eight chances. Atlanta’s Tim Hudson (4-3) lasted only five innings, his shortest stint of the season, after tossing a one-hit shutout against Milwaukee in his previous start. Cardinals 6, Cubs 4 CHICAGO — Daniel Descalso hit a twoout, bases-loaded single in the eighth off Kerry Wood and Albert Pujols had four hits, helping Chris Carpenter get his first win of

St. Louis pulled out the victory without manager Tony La Russa, who was undergoing tests at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. Brewers 8, Padres 6 MILWAUKEE — Jonathan Lucroy tied career highs with three hits and three RBIs and Shaun Marcum won his fourth straight decision, lifting Milwaukee over San Diego. Dodgers 10, Pirates 3 PITTSBURGH — Matt Kemp hit a three-run homer and Los Angeles broke out of a lengthy hitting slump in a win over Pittsburgh. The Dodgers posted a season-high 15 hits, including three each by Jamey Carroll

and Aaron Miles. Ted Lilly (3-3) had little trouble over six innings as Los Angeles won for just the second time in seven games. Andrew McCutchen hit two home runs for the Pirates, who were hoping to give themselves some breathing room after making a rare move above .500 on Monday. Instead, they dropped to 18-18 when newfound ace Kevin Correia (5-3) ran into trouble in the sixth. Reds 7, Astros 3 HOUSTON — Homer Bailey allowed five hits over seven scoreless innings, Jay Bruce had a two-run homer and Joey Votto drove in three runs and Cincinnati beat Houston.

Indians prevail on bases-loaded free pass Associated Press

CLEVELAND — Michael Brantley drew a bases-loaded walk with two outs in the ninth inning off Tampa closer Kyle Farnsworth to force in the winning run and give Cleveland its 14th straight win at home, 5-4 over the Rays on Tuesday night. The victory continued the Indians’ recent run of late-inning magic at Progressive Field. They have won their last four at home in their final at-bat. Cleveland loaded the bases against Joel Peralta (1-2) before Farnsworth came on and issued his first walk in 16 outings this season. Brantley and Grady Sizemore homered for the Indians, who are 14-2 at home for the first time since becoming an AL charter member in 1901. They are 7-0 against AL East teams, a stat that could convince skeptics that they are a legitimate contender this season after losing 93 games in 2010. Chris Perez (3-1) pitched a

scoreless ninth for the win. Blue Jays 7, Red Sox 6 (10) TORONTO — David Cooper hit his first major league homer and drove in the winning run with a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning as Toronto beat Boston. Jose Bautista hit his 11th home run of the season and rookie J.P. Arencibia also went deep for Toronto. Adrian Gonzalez homered twice for the Red Sox, the 11th multihomer game of his career, and David Ortiz added a solo shot. Rajai Davis hit a one-out single off Matt Albers (0-1) in the 10th and stole second on a pitchout, sliding in just ahead of the tag. Davis stole third on the very next pitch, and the Red Sox brought their infield in. Cooper won it with a fly to center. Orioles 7, Mariners 6, 13 innings BALTIMORE — Matt Wieters singled home the winning run with two outs in the 13th inning, part of a stunning comeback that gave Baltimore a victory over Seattle.

After the Mariners got the go-ahead run in the top of the 13th, the Orioles scored twice in the bottom half against Brandon League (0-2), who blew his first save opportunity in 10 chances this season. J.J. Hardy homered and had four hits for Baltimore in his first game back from the disabled list. The Orioles, who bounced back from a 4-3 deficit in the eighth, snapped a fourgame losing streak and improved to 1-17 when trailing after seven innings. Yankees 3, Royals 1 NEW YORK — Freddy Garcia pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter provided the offense and New York’s bullpen made it stand up in a victory over Kansas City. Brett Gardner tripled and scored twice as the Yankees won for the eighth time in 10 games at home against the Royals. Kansas City has a major league-best 15 wins at Kauffman Stadium but dropped to

just 3-9 on the road this season. Garcia (2-2) gave up six hits and a pair of walks in six-plus innings to win for only the second time in nine decisions against the Royals. He outpitched Kyle Davies (1-5), who allowed three runs in five-plus innings for Kansas City. Former Yankees outfielder Melky Cabrera provided the Royals with their only run, a solo homer to center field in the fourth inning that briefly tied the game. Rangers 7, Athletics 2 ARLINGTON, Texas — Colby Lewis pitched neatly into the eighth inning and Texas got a two-run homer from slumping Adrian Beltre in a rain-delayed victory over Oakland. Lewis (3-4) allowed one run and five hits over 7 1-3 innings. He walked one and failed to register a strikeout for the Rangers, who had lost seven of nine and 11 of 15. The right-hander got 16 outs on balls hit in the air and threw a season-high 115 pitches.

Drug trial didn’t help Alzheimer’s patient Dear Dr. Gott: My wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s dementia about five years ago. The current drugs being prescribed are galantamine, Namenda and citalopram. Other than Alzheimer’s, her overall health is good. Shortly after being diagnosed, she placed in her age class at the Bloomsday road race. We were both runners. Anyway, her height is 5 feet 5 inches, her weight is 115 pounds, and her blood pressure is normal. Is there any other posDR. PETER sible course of treatment? GOTT We have been to specialists and more. We did participate in the failed dimebon trial. Dear Reader: The dimebon trial you refer to did fail. An old Russian antihistamine remedy developed for hay fever and known as dimebon was one of the world’s most promising hopes for the treatment of Alzheimer’s. While originally providing good results in a small trial, a newer one involving a greater number of patients with mild to moderate symptoms failed to show progress after six months for the treatment of cognitive decline, nor did it help the behavioral problems associated with the disease when compared with a placebo. As you can well imagine, the outcome was unexpected and tragic for individuals such as yourself and your wife, as well as for Pfizer,

who had been paying for 60 percent of the development costs. Alzheimer’s is an irreversible and progressive brain disease that destroys memory and thinking. It is estimated that more than 5 million Americans may have the disease, so you can understand why so much hope was placed in the dimebon. Brain damage for this disorder can begin 10 to 20 years before any symptoms are present. Tangles develop and plaque forms in certain areas of the brain. As this occurs, healthy neurons work less efficiently before they lose their ability to function properly. By the time Alzheimer’s reaches its final stage, damage is widespread and brain tissue has significantly atrophied. There are four FDA medications approved for the treatment of Alzheimer’s. In no particular order and for a mild to moderate disorder are rivastigmine (Exelon), galantamine (Razadyne) and donepezil (Aricept). The heavy hitter for advanced cases is memantine (Namenda). All four regulate the chemicals that transmit messages between neurons within the brain. Their purpose is to help memory and speech and assist with behavioral problems. The big issue is that they don’t modify the underlying disease process, nor do results last more than a few years. While it’s not what you really want to hear and I wish I could be more helpful, research has been phenomenal over the past few years and important advances have

been made. Scientists and physicians are working together for a better understanding of the disease. Every effort brings us a step closer to the time when we will be able to better manage this horrible condition. While the last trial was a failure, perhaps another one is on the horizon that might make all the difference in the world for you. I suggest you contact the Alzheimer’s Disease Education Center at (800) 438-4380 or online at Alzheimers. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including “Live Longer, Live Better,” “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Diet” and “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook,” which are available at most bookstores or online.

Avoid the unwanted with avoidance BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

John Maynard Keynes said, “The avoidance of taxes is the only intellectual pursuit that carries any reward.” That isn’t so at the bridge table, where “avoidance” is one of the toughest declarer-play techniques. How does it apply in today’s deal? South is in four spades. West leads the diamond jack. What should declarer do? North made a game-invitational limit raise with four-card support, 10 total points (nine high-card plus one shortage for the doubleton) and eight losers (two spades, three hearts, two diamonds and one club). South momentarily thought about a slam, but his hand was too balanced.

NYC jazz musician found dead in trunk at his home NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a New York City jazz musician who hadn’t been seen since last week has been found dead inside a storage chest in his home. Stanley Wright was reported missing by his son early Tuesday. Police checked his Brooklyn home around 3:30 a.m. and found his body. He was last seen alive Thursday. Relatives tell the Daily News the 62-year-old Wright once taught music at a

Brooklyn middle school and played at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Wright played the bass, piano and drums and gave lessons. Relatives say Wright was a widower and lived alone with two cats. He was the father of three, including actress N’Bushe Wright, who co-starred in the 1998 Wesley Snipes action movie “Blade.” The medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of his death.

South starts with six tricks outside spades: two diamonds (given the opening lead) and four clubs. So he needs only four trump tricks, not five. With nine cards missing



SAME AS CASH FINANCING with approved credit

the queen, the mathematicians will tell you to play for the drop. But if declarer does that here, he finds that East is getting a trump trick. South will shift to clubs, East will ruff the third round and switch to the heart queen, resulting in down one. South should realize that he can fail only if East gains the lead early and pushes a high heart through the king, with West having the ace. South should play to avoid East’s winning an early trick. He should lead a spade to dummy’s ace, then play a spade to his jack. Here, after the finesse wins, declarer cashes his spade king and ends with an overtrick. However, even if the spade finesse lost, the contract would be safe.

WEATHER UNDERGROUND’S NATIONAL WEATHER Severe weather will break out throughout the southern and central Plains on Wednesday as a low pressure center and cold front push through the region. Ahead of the front, plenty of warm moist air will be in place, leading to a large level of instability in the atmosphere. When the front pushes through this unstable air, intense thunderstorms will develop with the possibility of large hail, strong winds, frequent lightning and tornadoes. While a massive tornado outbreak like the ones over the past few weeks is very unlikely, multiple tornadoes are anticipated throughout the southern and central Plains, especially in Kansas and Oklahoma. Strong thunderstorms are also likely in the Great Lakes region, but the intensity level will be less than in the Plains as conditions are not as favorable for the development of the more damaging aspects of thunderstorms. In the East Pleasant weather will continue south of New England as warm temperatures and clear skies remain in place. New England will continue to see cloudy weather with some drizzle as a storm off the coast remains stationary. The West Coast will see precipitation arrive in the Northwest as a cold front ahead of a late season winter storm moves ashore. This front will push through Washington and Oregon, eventually moving into California in the night. South of the front, conditions should remain pleasant.
