Even with bad times, people are giving BY SHAVONNE POTTS

A new way of getting tower

Don Rink bought his wife these roses for Valentine’s Day.

Be my Valentine? It took a while, but Don and Sue finally got together

Money makes the world go round. It’s not just a song, but with a dicey economy it is a means of maintaining certain services. Job losses have more people looking to charitable organizations for help with food and other basic needs. But how has the faltering economy affected charitable giving? In Rowan County, the trend seems to lean more toward people continuing to give in spite of the economy. When it comes to donating, people seem to remember Main Street Mission in China Grove, said Director Anne Corriher. “We have benefited in a bad economy and it’s been amazing to see,” she said. Beginning around the holidays in 2009, Corriher said she anticipated few donations. “So far our donations have been up and I really feel like it’s due to the fact that people are aware there are a lot people in need and out of jobs,” she said. The holiday season is a big giving time for the nonprofit organization. Corriher chalks it up to people being in the giving spirit. “People are just reminded around the holidays,” she said. In the summertime, people are busier and school is out. The mission receives many of its food donations from schools conducting canned food drives. “Our shelves look amazingly healthy right now. We hope to last through March,” Corriher said. Most of the food and some monetary donations come in from October to December. There are also various groups, organizations like the United Way, churches and individuals who give to the mission. In May, postal carriers pick up food from homes and deliver it to the mission as part of a canned food drive. “But by mid-September we do not have a lot on the

on and Sue Rink say they are like any other couple and on Valentine’s Day, they’ll go to dinner like so many others. But this will be the first year they will celebrate the day as a married couple. It took about half a century before they finally got together as a couple, holding the wedding ceremony last August. Both grew up in Rowan County. They knew of each other and even attended the same high school, but didn’t hang out in the same circles. In 2002, when Sue began trying to find her Boyden High classmates from the class of 1957, she hit the Internet. She stumbled upon a Web site,, and created a profile and wrote a message to several classmates. Don responded. He was living in Florida, just outside Daytona, and she was in Cabarrus County. The two began corresponding. Sue worked for NASCAR company Melling Racing Enterprises. When events took her to Florida, the two would meet for dinner. When Don came to Rowan County to visit family, the two would have dinner. He recalled the place where they had their first meal, a seafood restaurant in south Daytona. Another classmate accompanied Sue to Florida and the three were able to catch up and tour the area. Don jokes that he remembers Sue in high school, but she knows he doesn’t. She seems OK with that, saying she was the quiet type back then. They had some of the same classes together but weren’t friends then. “I remember him because he was cute. He still is,” she said. The couple can exchange banter that goes beyond six months of marriage. They laugh and carry on as if they’ve been married much longer. He’s retired from Honeywell Information Systems, where he was a




County against property owners’ attempt to have Mooresville annex 18 acres and allow permit



Owners of a Mount Ulla property are asking the town of Mooresville to annex 18 acres of their 200-acre farm, which could allow the construction of a radio tower prohibited by Rowan County. The Rowan County Board of Commissioners will consider a resolution opposing the annexation at 7 p.m. Monday at the Cohen Administrative Offices Building, 130 W. Innes St. Rowan County Manager Gary Page said property owners Richard L. and Dorcas Parker were denied a permit for a radio tower four years ago. “Our board feels that this is an attempt of the property owners to ask the town of Mooresville to annex them as a way of circumventing the wishes of the Rowan County Commissioners and the Rowan County Zoning Ordinance,” Page said. In November 2006, commissioners voted to deny the permit for a 1,350-foot-tall broadcast tower on the property to serve Davidson County Broadcasting. Gig Hilton, president of the broadcast company that operates 94.1 FM in Lexington, appealed the county's decision. In September 2007, a three-judge panel of the N.C. Court of Appeals upheld the denial, saying the county acted appropriately in its decision that the tower would present a hazard to a nearby private airstrip, Miller Airpark. The resolution states that the board has gone on record opposing annexations that are controversial or harmful in nature, as well as North Carolina’s “outdated and inherently unfair” annexation law. “We recognize that general statutes allow for voluntary and satellite annexations,” Page said. “What our board is saying is that it crosses the county line and it would not be good for that area of the county.” In other news, the board plans to approve a resolution Monday calling for the prohibition of illegal immigrants from attending North Carolina’s community colleges. “That resolution, other than the name,


Sue and Don Rink were Boyden High School classmates in 1957 but didn’t really know each other. They got reacquainted at a 50th reunion, dated for a while and recently married.

Sue says she remembers Don, as seen in their 1957 Boyden High School annual, ‘because he was cute. He still is.’

Masked protesters try to mar Olympics as first medals handed out VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Police in riot gear confronted more than 200 masked protesters who hurled newspaper boxes through the display windows of a popular department store selling Olympic souvenirs. Seven people were arrested after officers carrying clubs and shields quashed the downtown protest on the opening day of competition at the Vancouver Olympics. There were no reports of injuries. Police knew in advance about the protest but only decided to move in once they knew “criminals” were involved. Authorities said they were wary of masked anarchists who dress in black and use a tactic called “Black Block” to hide their identities. Among them was a loosely organized group known to disrupt

day for the honor of being the first of 86 champions to be crowned at the Vancouver Games. The first Olympic record was set by Dutch speedskater Sven Kramer in winning the 5,000 meters. Kramer’s time of 6 minutes, 14.60 seconds shaved six-hundredths of a second off Jochem Uytdehaage’s record set at altitude in Salt Lake City in 2002. Competition at the 21st Winter Olympics opened Saturday with all eyes and heavy hearts on the Whistler Sliding Center. Sliders resumed training on a repaired and slightly reconfigured track the day after a 21-year-old luger from the republic of Georgia died following a crash on the last turn of a training run.

After taking a deep breath, the three-time Olympian navigated all 16 turns without incident. The final turn, where Nodar Kumaritashvili crashed, now has a higher wall and there’s now padding on the steel poles along the finishing curve. Modifications also were made to the surface of the ice. The men’s downhill was supposed to be the first medal of these games, but it was postponed because of warm, wet weather in Whistler. That put the ski jumpers at the head of the list.

Southbound traffic on U.S. 29 flowing again


One lane open in each direction over Yadkin; Wil-Cox bridge remains closed


Lt. Neal Goodman, left, of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office and Salisbury Police Officer Tyesha Harden flank Salisbury Deputy Chief Steve Whitley, who salutes at the 15th annual Rowan County Peace Officers Memorial Service.

A service ‘to remember those who made ultimate sacrifice’ Salisbury Police Officers Jason Cottingham, left, and Corey Brooke retire the colors to the courtyard of the First Presbyterian Church.


he Bible says there is no greater love than a man sacrifice his life for his friends. Each year, law enforcement officers make that ultimate sacrifice — when they give of their life doing their duty. Area law enforcement officers, their family members and other public servants gathered Thursday for the Rowan County Peace Officers Memorial Service. This is the 15th annual event, which was held at First Presbyterian Church, Salisbury. As the wife of a veteran law enforcement officer, Annika Collins has attended service to support her husband, Kent, and to honor the memory of other law enforcement officers. Kent is a Rowan County Sheriff’s detective and has been involved with the honor guard. “I think it’s very important to show respect those who’ve lost. They don’t get the thanks,” said Annika Collins, who attended the service with son, Barrett, 2. The ceremony is also a way for the family to pay homage to Kent’s


uncle, Nick Griffin, who served as a police officer in Texas. Griffin died some years ago of cancer. “It’s a way to remember him. A reflection of his service,” Annika said. This will be Kent’s last time with the honor guard. The family will move to Texas and Kent will work with the Houston Police Department. “This is not about an election or office, it’s about officers who’ve given their lives, and their family. It’s to honor them,” Sheriff Kevin Auten

said. “I think it’s important to our profession that we have the opportunity to gather to remember those who made that ultimate sacrifice,” Salisbury Police Chief Rory Collins said. “All too often we don’t appreciate all that law enforcement do for us,” added U.S. Attorney Anna Mills Wagoner, who also attended the ceremony. Wagoner represents the middle district of North Carolina and is a


Police seek second suspect from Ellis Street shooting

[xbIAHD y0 0 1rzu

A third suspect, Cordaurl Cowan, 22, was in fair condition with a gunshot wound Thursday at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in WinstonSalem. Authorities say he will face charges when he’s released. The charges stem from an attempted robbery early Saturday that police say involved the three suspects and another man. Just past 6 a.m., officers responding to a reported gunshot wound found Cowan bleeding from wounds to his left side and right arm. During a canvass of the neighborhood, investigators were approached by Desmond Ramond Adams, of 529 Ellis St., who acknowledged shooting Cowan. Adams told police he’d been outside his house when three

men with their faces covered approached him and two of them displayed handguns. When two of the armed men opened fire, Adams told police he returned fire and hit all three of the men. He was detained for questioning. Lee, of 507 South Rowan Ave., Spencer, was grazed by a bullet. He was treated and released from Rowan Regional Medical Center then taken into custody. Shot twice in the left leg, Crump got a ride to Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast in Concord, where he was treated and released. Anyone with information on Crump is asked to call the Salisbury Police Department at 704638-5333 or Crime Stoppers at 1866-639-5245.

In the meantime, Pat Ivey, Division 9 engineer with the Transportation Department, said state officials sought the public’s advice on how best to use the existing bridge to get traffic going again in both directions. “Local residents who drive through this area regularly gave us valuIVEY able feedback on how traffic should flow,” Ivey said. “We listened to what they had to say and, as a result, made important changes to our plans.” Those changes include only allowing access to Old Salisbury Road and northbound I-85 from the bridge. The southbound ramp of I-85 will remain closed to ensure motorist safety, the state press release said. The only time it would be opened is in an emergency situation. If that occurs, access to Old Salisbury Road will be closed, and traffic from I-85 southbound will be rerouted onto U.S. 29. The press release said the Department of Transportation will monitor the new traffic pattern and make adjustments if necessary.

Urine, blood tests could replace colonoscopy BY EMILY FORD

Another charged Police are seeking another man in a Saturday morning shootout on Ellis Street that left one suspect hospitalized and another jailed on a murder charge. R o b e r t Roderquis Crump, 24, of 411 Mildred Ave., is wanted on charges of attempted first- CRUMP degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon. If found, Crump will join Antonio Rushawn Lee, 19, who remains in the Rowan County jail under $1 million bond on the same charges.

Southbound drivers are again be able to cross the Yadkin River on U.S. 29 near Spencer. The N.C. Department of Transportation has converted one of two lanes on the northbound bridge to accommodate southbound traffic, the state said in a press release. That change, and a corresponding change in traffic routing around the bridge, took effect Thursday. Opening that bridge to twoway traffic allows southbound drivers to cross the river on U.S. 29 for the first time since April 8, when the state closed the 86year-old Wil-Cox bridge after an inspection found exposed rebar, deteriorating concrete and deep cracks in the structure. The Wil-Cox bridge had carried southbound U.S. 29 traffic over the Yadkin River. Since its closing, drivers have had to follow a detour onto Interstate 85 to get to Spencer. Transportation officials say the changes on the second bridge are temporary. A new northbound U.S. 29 bridge is one of the smaller projects planned as part of the Interstate 85 bridge replacement over the Yadkin. That work starts in October. And Davidson County has agreed to take on the Wil-Cox bridge as part of a planned recreational trail.

KANNAPOLIS — Blood and urine tests could one day replace colonoscopy to diagnose colon cancer, suggests a discovery made by scientists at the N.C. Research Campus. Dr. Wei Jia, co-director of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s Center for Research Excellence in Bioactive Food Components in Kannapolis, suspects that chemicals in blood and urine might signal colorectal cancer. It’s the first step toward developing a cheaper, less invasive alternative to colonoscopy, he said. Jia’s team in China and Kan-

napolis analyzed urine and blood samples from 123 people — 60 with colon cancer and 63 without. They identified 16 chemicals in JIA urine and 33 in blood that were present in unusual amounts in the cancer patients. “We still have a long way to go,” said Jia, who works at the biotechnology hub in downtown Kannapolis. They looked at about 500 different metabolites, the byproducts of chemical reactions with-


Drug-related violence keeps mission team from Mexico BY SHAVONNE POTTS

For the past 20 years, youth and adults from First Presbyterian Church have traveled annually to Mexico for mission work, but for the second year in a row, Mexico will not be their destination this summer. Instead, they’re going to work on a school for the deaf in Jamaica. “We are unable to go (to Mexico) because of the violence,” said the Rev. Whitney Bayer, associate youth minister. Recent drug-related violence in the border city of Reynosa, Mexico, has caused a temporary hold on missions in that area and other border cities. The Teens With a Mission group usually holds vacation Bible school and

builds homes for families in Reynosa. The group works with Faith Ministry, based in McAllen, Texas, just five miles north of Reynosa. The fighting between rival drug cartels against the Mexican government escalated in February, leading Faith Ministry to place the temporary hold on missions. Reynosa had escaped the violence before, but this year it has encroached upon the city. Officials with the Texas-based ministry placed the hold through May and have since extended that hold through June. “It’s been a disappointment because we have so many relationships with the people in Mexico,” Bayer said.

This Civil War monument was erected in Picacho Peak State Park near Eloy, Ariz., one of the most westernmost battlefield locations during the Civil War. “A lot of people who come from the East use it as a vacation,� Ellen Bilbrey, a spokeswoman for Arizona State Parks, said of the Civil War re-enactors. A fund drive launched in nearby Eloy, Ariz., is attempting to keep the park open, and the inclusion by the trust in its annual endangered list is a boost to that effort, she said.

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — His wounds healed decades ago. The only scars left are etched into his mind. Now, 68 years after Seaman 1st Class James Powell took shrapnel to his legs and endured burns from explosions when his World War II destroyer was sunk by a Japanese attack, the veteran is finally getting his Purple Heart medal. Nearly a year ago, Powell, his wife, Catherine, and a family friend went to work trying to secure the Purple Heart that he had earned so long ago. He received word that the request had been granted this week. “It was quite exciting after all these years I didn’t get it,� he said from his Bonita Springs, Fla. The award is only given to veterans wounded in combat “at the hands of the enemy,� according to the Military Order of the Purple Heart. Powell was overlooked because of lost records and the fact that, until recently, he never actively sought the honor. Since sustaining war injuries at 18, Powell has married; he has worked as a truck driver and a factory worker; he has seen his son, James Powell, Jr., come home a decorated soldier from Vietnam. He also watched his son die in 2001 from complications of Agent Orange exposure in that war; and, recently, he lost a lung after years of smoking. Powell, now 86, lives in a mobile home park with his wife, Catherine. After the lung

“Any attention, of course is going to assist people who are trying to keep that park open,� she said. The Arizona State Parks Board next week will consider an agreement that would keep Picacho Peak open for at least a year. Under the agreement, the city of Eloy would pay $20,000 to subsidize the operation and maintenance of the park. The board has adopted a number of similar agreements to keep open historical and recreational parks across Arizona. Called “History Under Siege,� the most-endangered list is intended to highlight threats to what the trust calls “tangible links to our shared history.� With the nation about to mark 150 years since the start of the Civil War, the 2010 installment was released with the support of Jeff Shaara, a member of the trust’s board and author of “Gods and Generals,� among other books on the Civil War. “Nothing creates an emotional connection between present and past like walking in the footsteps of our Civil War soldiers,� Shaara said in remarks prepared for the formal release of the list. His father, Michael Shaara, wrote “The Killer Angels,� a historical novel on Gettysburg.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A Southwestern desert peak where cavalry clashed nearly 150 years ago has joined an annual list of the nation’s most endangered Civil War battlefields because state budget cuts are set to close the park that marks the site. Picacho Peak in Arizona, the Western frontier in the battle between the North and the South, was named for the first time on the Civil War Preservation Trust’s annual list of 10 historic battlefields most threatened by development or neglect. The list was released Thursday in Washington, D.C. In addition to Pennsylvania’s Gettysburg and the Wilderness Battlefield in Virginia, the list includes some memorable battles waged in states where the Civil War still resonates on the eve of its 150th anniversary. They are located primarily in the South and the Mid-Atlantic. For sheer distance, Picacho Peak stands apart from the rest. The state park is slated to close June 3 because of budget cuts. On April 12, 1862, Lt. James Barrett led a detachment of Union cavalry to the rocky spire 50 miles northwest of Tucson and skirmished with Confederate Rangers, intent on blunting an ocean-toocean Confederacy. While Barrett was killed and the Union army retreated, Union forces from California eventually moved on to Tucson and snuffed a Confederate settlement. The battle, while a footnote in Civil War history, still attracts annual visits by re-enactors.

Kannapolis manager proposes budget BY EMILY FORD


Seddiq Behrooz, who is originally from Afghanistan, shows one of several kites he has made, similar to the ones he made as a child. Behrooz will talk about the traditions of kite making at the Let’s Get Connected Day.

Seddiq Behrooz found success in the U.S. after moving from Afghanistan eddiq Behrooz left Afghanistan when he was 24. By then, the Russians already had taken his family’s land, and it was hard to know who to trust. Behrooz grimaces when he says it, but during his last year in college — he studied architecture at Kabul University — he sat in class with a knife hidden in MARK his sock. WINEKA All it took was for someone to say you were anti-communist or that you disapproved of what was happening in your country. Behrooz saw fellow Afghans being summoned to what he called “brainwashing” committee meetings, where they were coerced into becoming members of a new family, a scary one. Sons began turning in fathers. Afghans he had grown up with mysteriously disappeared. “All of a sudden, you couldn’t trust your best friend,” Behrooz says. A fellow he played soccer with once joined his group and showed them the gun he had been given. “I’m allowed to kill up to four people without anyone asking questions,” he told them. Behrooz had an older brother (by 20 years) who was a medical doctor in the United States — at the VA Medical Center in Salisbury. By mid September 1980, Behrooz was here living with his brother, looking to start a

On Saturday at Sloan Park, Behrooz will give a brief presentation on kite-making and kite-flying at the annual “Let’s Get Connected Day,” which celebrates Rowan County’s wide diversity of people and emphasizes living in harmony with one another. The day is highlighted by the dedication of a Peace Pole and a Circle of Prayer, with contributions from many religions. As a boy, Behrooz learned the craft and science behind kites, as did many children in Afghanistan. There were three kinds of kites: fighting, leisure and, for lack of a better term, luminary. The fighting kites are meant for competition. They are generally longer ear to ear than from top to bottom. You can roll them and maneuver them quickly in any direction. “That one will fly like a jet,” Behrooz explains, pointing to a fighting kite he made the previous day. For fighting purposes, competitors coat the thread line going to their kites with a colored paste that includes a powder derived from ground-up glass particles. The better the recipe, the better the sharp glass coating adheres to the line. The kite-flying competitors go after each other’s lines, maneuvering the kites so as to create a scissors-like or sawing action that will cut the opponent’s line and eliminate them. “It’s like a science,” Behrooz says, describing

KANNAPOLIS — With Kannapolis facing double-digit unemployment and flat revenues, the city manager on Thursday proposed a “lean, efficient” budget for the next fiscal year, which begins July 1. In his proposed $45.3 million budget, City Manager Mike Legg recommends leaving the property tax rate at 49 cents but raising the water rate by 5.7 percent. That would mean about $2 more per month for most residential users. The rate hike would include the town of Landis, which buys water from Kannapolis. Landis would pay about $7,000 more for water, Legg said. LEGG The water rate increase would help pay for construction of a new waterline. Legg’s proposed budget is .4 percent higher than the current budget, or basically flat. It includes no new city employees, no pay raises and one capital improvement project, $350,000 to improve the Village Park entrance road and parking lot off West C Street. “As we all know, we are in a pretty significant economic shift,” Legg told the City Council. “It was a challenge to get the budget to balance.” Due to the recession, residential building permits fell 23 percent from the past year and 53 percent from two years ago.


some of the physics and aerodynamics involved. Children usually serve as the kite runners, tracking down the beaten kites wherever they land. The best-selling book “Kite Runner” took its name from this custom. Behrooz was both a competitor and a runner as a youngster. 

As wealth was measured in Afghanistan, Behrooz figures his family was in the top 10 percent, though his shoes and clothing had to be patched many times. His grandfather owned a lot of land, and he passed it down to his five sons, including Seddiq’s father. “We were farmers until the Russians came, you know,” he says. In the beginning, Seddiq couldn’t find work in Salisbury as an architect. He tried next through a family connection in Falls Church,, Va., but found his college education meant little. He went to

Rowan business benefits from state contract policy What: Let's Get Connected Day When: 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday Where: Sloan Park, off N.C. 150. What: Dedication of a fourth Peace Pole, inscribed with the message "May Peace Prevail on Earth." The languages on this pole are English, Gaelic, Dari (Afghanistan),Creole (Haiti), Swahili (Kenya), Catawba (Native American), Russian and Philippino. What else: The Circle of Prayer. This year it will include a Buddhist monk from Charlotte who will share ancient blessings for the dedication of the Peace Pole. The religions represented will be Christian, Jewish, Islamic and Buddhist. Sponsor: The Covenant Community Connection, a sub-group of the SalisburyRowan Human Relations Council.


A Rowan County business is one of the first to benefit from a new policy favoring North Carolina firms for state contracts. Desco Inc., of Salisbury, price-matched a bid to supply building cables and wires for a state job. The awarded amount was $69,149. Desco was able to match another bidder’s price thanks to the N.C. Preference program, created by an executive order signed by Gov. Bev Perdue in February. Under the program, North Carolina businesses that bid within 5 percent or $10,000 of a low bid for the sale of goods to the state are offered the chance to match the lowest bid if it came from an out-of-state company. Three companies in Wake and Cumberland counties were also among the first four to take advantage of the new policy, winning contracts totaling more than $100,000, according to a press release issued by Perdue’s office. Desco’s was the largest of the contracts. “It’s critical that we do everything we can to support our home-grown businesses. North Carolina businesses employ our friends, our neighbors and our family members. They grow here, they stay here and they create jobs here,” Perdue said in the press release. “The preference for in-state businesses will save jobs and help North Carolina businesses grow and create new jobs.” Perdue has also called on the General Assembly to legislate additional advantages for small and North Carolina-based businesses, her press release said.

The Second-Annual Salisbury BBQ Festival will be held Saturday from 11:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. in the Spencer Plaza. The festival is sponsored by the Salisbury-Rowan Cultural Arts Foundation and the Spencer Jaycees. The festival will feature at least five crews cooking barbecue, with five judges sampling and picking their favorites. The blind judging will be done by certified N.C. Barbecue judges.

taste, texture and appearance. A second honor — the People’s Choice Award — will also be given, and will be chosen by those attending the festival. Also at the festival will be the band 23-19, a local rock band that specializes in rock, pop and punk, and will also take requests. The band will play through the day. Cheerwine truffles and Cheerwine Italian Ice will also be served, as well as barbecue cookies. The foundation hopes the barbecue cookies become a signature cookie for the event. A 24-foot mural will be on display from last year’s event, and another will be

After two months of hospitalization for what started out as pneumonia and developed into H1N1, Rachel Rawlings is home. Childhood friend, Marcie Barnhardt, who is organizing a weekend fundraiser for Rawlings, a China Grove native, says she is much better. “Rachel is now home and recovering slowly,” Barnhardt said. She is able to talk without having to do so through a tracheotomy tube. “Things are looking up finalRAWLINGS ly,” she said. The Saturday fundraiser is a hot dog dinner and raffle at Mount Zion United Church of Christ, where the family attends in China Grove. The fundraiser event is from 58 p.m. Raffle tickets are $2 a piece. There will also be a silent auction.

Rawlings was taken to the emergency room by her husband, Brian, on March 14 and was told she had double pneumonia, meaning she had pneumonia in both lungs. Rawlings, 29, gave birth to a second daughter, Avery, in December. She began getting sick off and on, her husband said. Antibiotics didn’t seem to work and she became sicker. Doctors discovered Rachel had Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), a potentially life-threatening lung condition that prevents enough oxygen from getting into the blood. The H1N1 was treated with an experimental non-FDA approved drug. Rawlings is going through physical, speech and occupational therapy. Some of the items up for auction are: a threemonth membership to the Forum, Salisbury; an on-location photography session with Carolina Signature Photography; a $50 gift card from Ivan’s Restaurant, Salisbury; a $25 gift card to R&R Barbecue, Concord; and a $50 gift certificate from Wise Oil, China Grove.

Gang graffiti painted on historic building Police say someone spray-painted 10-foot-tall letters on a historic building this week. Erasing the giant-size graffiti required ladders and a large dose of Goof Off, a paint remover. The target was the Ice & Fuel building at 224 East Horah Street. According to Salisbury Police, someone painted “CSW” on the side and back of the building. Police officials indicated the “CSW” lettering has popped up recently around

town in graffiti at various locations. According to a graffiti website, CSW stands for Cali Street Wars, a West Coast gang. Other letters were painted on the bricks at the Ice & Fuel building, but they were not legible. A representative of Historic Salisbury Foundation reported finding the graffiti Tuesday. Investigators ask anyone with information to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333.

Drugs seized in traffic stop GRANITE QUARRY — A traffic stop that started with a truck weaving severely on U.S. 52 ended with felony drug charges against the driver. Christopher Lawrence Guyer, 44, of WinstonSalem, was charged with felony possession of marijuana, carrying a concealed gun and drivGUYER ing while impaired. He was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under $3,500 bond. Cpl. R.D. Seamon of the Granite Quarry-Faith Police Department observed a white GMC truck weaving on

U.S. 52 near Dunns Mountain Road. Seamon reported the driver crossed the center line several times and appeared to be using his cell phone. After stopping the vehicle, Seamon said Guyer fumbled while obtaining the requested papers. Guyer told the officer that he had a gun concealed in his truck and that he had a bag of marijuana stalks in the vehicle. Guyer told police he grabbed some marijuana from a yard and left after an argument with his girlfriend. Police also found a plastic bag containing a tied bundle of marijuana stalks worth an estimated $300, drug paraphernalia, and an open container of alcohol.

Missing teenager sought GRANITE QUARRY — Police are seeking assistance in locating a teen who ran away from home a month ago. Kimberly M a r i e Thompson, 17, was also seen at her residence April 14, according to the Granite Quarry-Faith THOMPSON Police Department. According to a press release from the department, Thompson has been seen in Salisbury, Winston-Salem and surrounding areas. Police describe Thompson as a black female, approximately 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighing approximately

200 pounds. According to police, she has been seen in the company of Francis Belinda Dewalt, 24. Police have an outstanding warrant for Dewalt. Investigators and several other individuals have been in contact with Thompson by phone but have been unable to locate her. Both subjects have been entered in the National Crime Information Center database. Anyone who has information regarding the whereabouts of Thompson or Dewalt is asked to call 1st Sgt. R.T. Taylor at the Granite Quarry-Faith Police Department at 704-279-2952, or anyone who sees Thompson is asked to contact their local law enforcement agency.

Golf club targeted in break-in A thief or thieves did more than $1,200 in damage during a break-in at McCanless Golf Club, 3515 Stokes Ferry Road. The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office reported damage to the building, a window and other items. The thief or thieves took a small amount of money and $15 worth of Budweiser beer. The thieves also reportedly did $200 worth of damage to 10 cases of beer and $200 damage to food. Other reports from the Sheriff’s Office: • A Ruger P-89 handgun

The theft occurred while the vehicle was at a convenience store at 300 N.C. 152 East, China Grove.

Bricks thrown in downtown Salisbury Police may have wondered if members of the Ernest T. Bass family had moved from Mayberry to Salisbury. Ernest T. usually came to town with pockets full of rocks, which he threw at everything in sight in the Andy Griffith TV show. This time, the bricks were being tossed from the top of buildings downtown. Salisbury police caught two teenagers Monday night throwing bricks off a building at 101 N. Main Street. Police responded to a report around 11 p.m. Monday. As officers arrived, they spotted two people running away at the rear of the building. Officer A.D. Safrit

KANNAPOLIS FROM 3A Construction has been delayed at the N.C. Research Campus and along the Kannapolis Parkway corridor, Legg said, impacting job creation and the tax base. His proposed budget “has been developed in extraordinarily tough economic times,” Legg wrote. “While we weather this current economic downturn, we must not lose focus of the incredibly bright future that awaits us.” Kannapolis had to cut $1.4 million from the current budget to avoid a shortfall. Legg estimates new revenue for next year at $170,000, “the lowest I’ve ever seen it,” he said. However, the city will retire $848,000 in debt service next year, including paying off Fire Station No. 1 and Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium. “The timing could not have been better,” Legg said. That money acts as “new revenue,” he said. Legg’s budget includes $1 million for a special bond package to fund improvements at the N.C. Research Campus. The city would spend $1 million for debt service but earn back that amount from the sale of the bonds, he said. The current budget included $1 million for the bonds, but because they were never sold, the money was used in the general fund, Legg said. The potential bond sale hinges on support from the Cabarrus County commissioners, who also would need to set aside $1 million for debt service, and Legg’s attempts to have the bonds rated to at-

tract investors. To help replenish the city’s fund balance, Legg recommends selling the third and final tract of city property near Second Creek. The LandTrust for Central North Carolina is interested in purchasing the tract and has $1 million set aside, Legg said. Any sale may need to go through the upset bid process, he said. Proceeds from sales of the first two tracts will generate $2 million to replenish the fund balance, which dipped below 15 percent this year. Legg recommends increasing fire fees to total $20,000 in new revenue. Increases for services like fire inspection mostly would affect developers, he said. He also suggests spending $60,000 a year to lease more office space from Castle & Cooke, which owns most of downtown Kannapolis. The city, which incorporated in 1984, rents space for city offices and a police station from David Murdock, billionaire chairman of Dole Food Co. who owns Castle & Cooke and the Research Campus. Castle & Cooke has quoted the city $14 per square foot for 3,349 square feet of furnished space, “significantly less than their investment” in the space, Legg said, as well as $5 per square foot for a finished basement. The space, located next door to city offices at 230 Oak Ave., would hold the finance department, which now has employees working in the hallway, as well as document storage, Legg said. Council will discuss the budget and hold a public hearing June 14.

BY SHAVONNE POTTS Tough economic times have led people to donate items for this weekend’s Faithful Friends annual yard sale. All of the proceeds benefit the Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary, which once built will be the county’s only no-kill animal facility. Event co-chair Peter Reinemann said a family donated some furniture, televisions, clothes, dishes and other household items because the husband has been out of work for two years. The family is moving out of their home to a small apartment and can’t afford storage or movers.

Free football, cheerleading camp in Kannapolis KANNAPOLIS — The Kannapolis City Football & Cheer organization, sponsored by the Kannapolis Parks and Recreation Department, will host another free football and cheer camp for children ages six to 12.

and father were able to move first to Iran. Meanwhile, back in the United States, Seddiq was filling out all kinds of paperwork in attempts to move his father and brother to this country. He was told they would be put on a 12-year waiting list. It took 20 years until a package arrived in Salisbury one day saying his family members were finally cleared to leave Iran. By then, they had moved to Holland. Seddiq’s father died several years ago. His oldest brother, the physician, now lives in Texas. A couple of years ago, he traveled back to Afghanistan to handle some family business and while there tracked down a cousin who had been Seddiq’s best friend and playmate as a boy. They often rode horses and went hunting together but hadn’t been able to speak with each other for 28 years. The brother connected them by telephone. “It was emotional,” Seddiq says.

the train busted and started blazing up pretty good. It didn’t look like anybody (was) hurt badly. It sounded like a big boom, big explosion. You could see bolts and stuff coming off the train and onto people’s cars.” The crossing at the intersection of 5th and East Center streets in Mebane has a gate with flashing lights. The gate and lights were both working, Artis said. Artis said local, state and federal agencies are investigating the derailment. Amtrak said in a news release that 12 passengers and

one crew member were injured in the derailment and were taken to one of three hospitals: Alamance Regional Medical Center in Burlington; Duke University Hospital in Durham or the University of North Carolina Hospital. Six previous accidents have occurred at the crossing dating back to 1978, including a wreck in 2005 that killed a 78-year-old, according to records from the Federal Railroad Administration. No one was injured in the most recent accident, which occurred in February.

The Piedmont, train No. 73, runs daily between Charlotte and Raleigh. In addition to the locomotive, the train had a baggage car and three passenger cars. The derailment disrupted service on the Piedmont and on trains 79 and 80, which travel between New York and Charlotte. Uninjured passengers, and passengers on later trains along the same route, were being bused from Rocky Mount and Greensboro to avoid the accident scene. Amtrak expects to resume normal service today.

The Department of Crime Control and Public Safety said on Thursday patrol Capt. James Williams Jr. was dismissed for personal conduct violations. Butner Public Safety Capt. Walter Williams and Lt. Daniel Parrott also were dismissed.

MEBANE (AP) — An Amtrak-operated commuter train with 36 passengers on board derailed Thursday in North Carolina after striking a tractor-trailer that was stuck on the tracks, injuring at least 13 people and setting the locomotive and a car on fire. The Piedmont train derailed shortly after 8 a.m. when it hit a lowboy trailer used to carry large equipment at a crossing in Mebane, authorities said. Amtrak operates the train, which the state of North Carolina owns. “I have never witnessed anything like that ever in my life,” Bob Farrar of Mebane, who saw the accident during a morning walk, told the Times-News of Burlington. “It was like seeing special effects from a movie happen right in front of you.” The trailer was stuck on the tracks before the train reached the crossing, according to state Department of Transportation spokeswoman Sondra Artis. Emergency crews from Alamance County and the town of Mebane were working to clean up a diesel spill at the scene, Amtrak spokeswoman Karina Romero said. Calls to both agencies were not immediately returned Thursday. Witness Kent Cates told WRAL-TV: “Diesel fuel from

Narrowing race bias test in N.C. death-penalty cases sought

Settlement in gill net case to protect sea turtles

RALEIGH (AP) — Five North Carolina primary campaigns are heading to a runoff. Four of the races are for seats in Congress. Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Cal Cunningham asked for a runoff in his race against Secretary of State Elaine Marshall. Republican congressional candidate Harold Johnson asked for a runoff in the state’s competitive 8th District. The other runoffs will be held in Republican primaries for the state’s 12th and 13th congressional districts along with the Democratic campaign for the 21st state Senate district. The runoff will be held June 22. State Board of Elections deputy director Johnnie McLean said several candidates have also requested recounts in local races, mostly for various county commissions.

RALEIGH (AP) — A settlement has been reached between North Carolina regulators and a rescue center in an effort to protect endangered turtles in coastal waters. The North Carolina Marine Fisheries Commission and the Division of Marine Fisheries agreed to new rules governing fishing practices to minimize the incidental catch of turtles. The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center filed the lawsuit in February to protest the use of gill nets by coastal fishermen. The center alleged that the nets ensnare and kill sea turtles. There will be new rules regulating the size and type of gill nets and the time frame when they can be deployed. Among other new regulations, a committee is being appointed that will advise state authorities on sea turtle protection.

Historic fire station Teens get $20,000 saved from bulldozer to help with mom’s CHARLOTTE (AP) — funeral The owner of a historic fire station in North Carolina scheduled for demolition says a private deal has been reached to save the 100-year-old building. The Charlotte Observer reported that developer Marcel Stark said Wednesday that two firms have provided “a finance package and structure” to preserve the building. He says the two-story Fire Station No. 2 in Charlotte will be redeveloped and redesigned for a new business. Stark didn’t provide details about the deal with Community South and Sherbert Consulting Group other than saying the business will be determined in one month and the building will be updated in four months. Stark said earlier he had a contract with a Florida developer to buy the property for about $1.4 million under the condition that the lot be cleared before the sale was finalized.

CHARLOTTE (AP) — Donations have poured in for two North Carolina teens who graduated from high school early so their mother could see them in caps and gowns before she died. The Charlotte Observer reported more than $20,000 has been raised to pay the funeral expenses for 43year-old Tonya Lockhart, who died from cervical cancer last month. North Mecklenburg High School held a small ceremony in a Charlotte hospital chapel before Lockhart died so she could see her children graduate. Eighteen-year-old Brittany and 19-year-old Brandon then learned a life insurance policy had lapsed, leaving them with no way to pay the $8,000 for their mother’s funeral. As of Wednesday, a fund set up at Myers Park United Methodist Church had received more than double what they needed.

both shot in the head after responding to a domestic disturbance in Charlotte. Mecklenburg Assistant District Attorney Marsha Goodenow said race is not a factor in the decisions prosecutors make to seek a death sentence. House Minority Whip Thom Tillis, R-Mecklenburg, said Republicans will attempt to introduce a measure during the legislative session that started this week to narrow the law to considering race only after a guilty verdict. But the GOP proposal is unlikely to advance this year. The decision to join Kentucky came last year after months of contentious debate and House and Senate votes along party lines. Any effort to introduce new legislation also faces multiple procedural hurdles lawmakers impose on themselves to focus work this year on passing adjustments to the state budget. “We’re not going to go around the rules to get into the Racial Justice Act again. This session is to focus on the budget, not to go in with bills that will be controversial,” said House Majority Leader Hugh Holliman, D-Davidson. “We’ll be glad to listen, but unless there’s more than one case out there, it can wait until January” when the Legislature’s long legislative session begins. The law was opposed by district attorneys, sheriffs and victims’ advocates who said it would make death penalty prosecutions too difficult. North Carolina has not had an execution since August 2006. Advocates pointed to re-

“There are some good people who will never want to acknowledge that we have racial disparities in America.”



RALEIGH (AP) — Republican legislators argued Thursday for restricting a new law that made North Carolina the second state after Kentucky to allow death-penalty defendants to claim statistical data indicates racial bias tips the scales of justice against them. The state’s Racial Justice Act was adopted last year after supporters said it was needed to prevent black defendants from being punished more harshly what whites. But Republicans argued the law should be altered to prevent it from being used in pending cases before a conviction. The widow of slain Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Officer Jeff Shelton urged state legislators to revisit the issue this year. Jennifer Shelton said at a news conference Thursday that the need for a revision was shown two weeks ago when a Superior Court judge postponed the death-penalty trial of her husband’s accused killer until October. The judge said that because the law is so new, he felt he had to give the suspect’s lawyers time to gather information on what role race may play in North Carolina prosecutors seeking or juries imposing the death penalty, The Charlotte Observer reported. “I disagree with the basis of the Racial Justice Act. I believe that a person is tried for their crime and not for the color of their skin,” said Shelton, who is white. “A defendant may argue and win a claim of racial discrimination under current law. Therefore, I do not support giving criminals another tool to use to get away with the crimes they have committed.” “I’m standing here because this hit me personally,” Shelton said. Demeatrius Montgomery, 28, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the 2007 slayings of Shelton and Officer Sean Clark, who were

NEW YORK (AP) — A late-day slide left stocks lower Thursday after a disappointing forecast from department store chain Kohl’s and a drop in financial shares. The Dow Jones industrial average ended down about 114 points, falling for six of the past eight days. Stocks mostly made modest moves for much of Thursday’s trading but fell in the final hour as the euro weakened. The drop in stocks signaled that traders remain skittish about the direction of the market after weeks of big swings. “It seems like the market is trying to find its footing,” said Adam Gould, senior portfolio manager at Direxion Funds in New York. Disappointing corporate and economic news dented sentiment. Kohl’s Corp. fell

NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook’s users are a lucrative target for Internet criminals. To combat malicious attacks, phishing scams and spam, the online social network is rolling out new security features. Facebook is adding a layer of authorization when it notices unusual activity on an account, such as simultaneous log-ins from opposite sides of the planet. The changes come as Facebook faces criticism over user privacy.

WASHINGTON (AP) — BP officials said they would thread a small tube into a jagged pipe on the seafloor to suck oil to the surface. Engineers will have to make sure the 6-inch-wide tube is inserted deep enough into the 21-inch-wide pipe so gas and seawater don’t mix, which can form crystals that could clog the tube. The smaller tube will be surrounded by a stopper to keep oil from leaking into the sea. The tube will then siphon the crude to a tanker at the surface, though BP declined to estimate how much oil the tube will be able to collect. A company spokesman said the process could take 12 hours to hook up.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — A U.S. missionary should spend six months in prison for her failed attempt to remove 33 children from Haiti after the Jan. 12 earthquake, a prosecutor said during the first day of her trial. Prosecutor Sonel JeanFrancois told the court that Laura Silsby knew she was breaking the law by trying to take the children without proper documents to an orphanage she was starting in the neighboring Dominican Republic. “Laura recognized she violated the law,” Jean-Francois said as lawyers and a small group of spectators crowded into a a stiflingly hot tent in the parking lot of the quakedamaged courthouse. He spoke after the Idaho woman testified. Silsby, who was leader of a group of Baptists detained by authorities, was the only person to testify on the first day of the trial. She spent much of the rest of the session reading the Bible. The 40-year-old businesswoman told the court she thought the children were orphans whose homes were destroyed in the earthquake. As it turned out, all the children had at least one living parent, who had turned their children over to the group in hopes of securing better lives for them.

WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) — Three Pakistani men who authorities say supplied funds to Times Square carbomb suspect Faisal Shahzad were arrested Thursday in a series of raids across the Northeast as the FBI followed the money trail in the failed attack. Investigators said it was not yet clear whether the three men knew how the money was going to be used. The men — two seized in the Boston area, one in Maine — were arrested as federal authorities searched homes and businesses in a coordinated series of raids centered in the Boston suburbs, on New York’s Long Island, and in New Jersey. They were arrested on immigration violations — administrative, not criminal, charges. They were not charged with any terrorismrelated crimes. Their names were not released. The raids resulted from evidence gathered in the investigation into the Times Square bomb attempt two weeks ago. FBI spokeswoman Gail Marcinkiewicz gave assurances Thursday that there was “no known immediate threat to the public or any active plot against the United States.”

Keep those roses blooming oses should be in or completing their first flush of bloom now. What can you do to keep them producing those beautiful blooms all summer? One of the most important requirements is sufficient water. Roses require 1 to 2 inches of water a week, either from rain or supplemental watering. If they do not receive this amount of water from rain, you will need to provide it. Fertilizer is another requirement. Roses need a lot of nourishment to continue to produce the beautiful blooms all season. You can use an orCAROLYN program or ALEXANDER ganic use a commercial fertilizer formulated for roses applied per instruction. After the roses have bloomed, they need to be deadheaded. This consists of removing the spent bloom which will make the energy produced by the plant go into making more blooms rather than producing seeds or rose hips. When the rose hip is formed, it signals the plant that its job of reproduction is done and it can stop blooming. A regular spray program is a must if you are to prevent disease. Blackspot and mildew are the major offenders in this area. A fungicide will need to be applied on a regular basis according to the package instructions. Of course, if you grow roses that do not get disease, you can forgo the spray program. Although there are some roses that are relatively disease free such as the “knockout” and “earth-kind” series of roses, I am not aware of any hybrid tea roses that do not get disease. You will also need to take care of insect pests if they do more damage than you can accept. But please only spray for insects if you see them or the damage they do. Be kind to our earth and only use insecticides if you must. A strong spray of water will remove aphids. Japanese beetles can be picked off by hand and dropped in a container of sudsy water. Spider mites will appear as it gets hotter. They are not insects but are relatives of the true spider so if you use a chemical to control them, you must use a miticide. They can be controlled with a water spray on the undersides of the leaves three or four times a week until they are gone. Thrips are tiny little insects that get inside the bloom and make the petals stick together. A chemical pesticide will have to be used on them. Mist the buds in the morning every few

questions during those hours. For rules of the show and other information, call 704-633-7024. Carolyn Alexander is a Master Gardener Volunteer for the Cooperative Extension Service in Rowan County and an American Rose Society designated Consulting Rosarian.

Attack of the bugs Scale insects becoming a problem on trees, shrubs S

cale insects are now a serious problem on a number of trees and shrubs. Many have called complaining about their holly and camellias with a white mass on the underside of the leaves. Scale insects are also a serious problem on gardenia and euonymus. To most people, the white mass really doesn’t look like an insect, but more like a stationary, fungal-like white mass. Underneath the protective cottony, waxy mass is a small insignificant insect DARRELL on the BLACKWELDER feeding leaves of the plant. Constant feeding masses of this insect weaken the plant, causing the leaves to turn yellow and, eventually, die if not treated. Most of the scale insects reported this week in Rowan County are cottony camellia scales. These are found around the leaf edges on the bottom of the leaves. Most homeowners are unaware they have a problem until the leaves turn yellow and fall off or the upper side of the leaf has a

sooty like black film. This is sooty mold caused by honeydew which is secreted by the insect and drips to the leaves below. The secreted honeydew is the perfect growing medium for mold and may also attract an army of ants. Most of the damage to the shrub by these insects seems to occur around the leaf edges. It is important to check the underneath of leaves frequently during the year for this insect. These insects can be controlled easily with soft pesticides such as liquid Sevin if they are in the “crawler stage.” Even though they seem stationary, they often crawl out from the protection of the waxy cottony coating and feed. At this time, scales are easy to control. Once the scales move and form the protective covering, traditional insecticides are not effective. Horticultural oils can be used to control scale insects with an oil coating that literally smothers the insect. Oils are generally used in early spring and fall during cool temperatures. Bayer Advanced Tree and Shrub contains a systemic insecticide that controls the insect

ardy Amaryllis (Lycoris Squamigera), also known as Belladonna or Naked Lady, is a plant native to South Africa. We are highly attracted to the showy, trumpet-like flowers and often gift or receive them during the holidays. As luck would have it, some varieties are hardy to our climate (zone 7 of the USDA hardiness zones) and are also highly prized by bees, butterflies and birds. Hippeastrum x Johnsonii is the hardiest of the amaryllis. Since we are on the edge of the hardiness zones for this plant, you should cover the bulbs with a layer of mulch to ensure survival over winter. Plant the bulb just after blooming with just a bit of the tip showing above the soil surface. Plant the bulbs 1 foot apart since they enjoy growing little “bulblets” that will need to be carefully separated and planted in a new spot in the garden or grown in a pot to gift to a friend. The amaryllis plant likes a neutral to slightly acid pH. Early in the spring, the plant will grow two to seven strap-like leaves before producing the stalk with the flower at the top in early May. Red, white and pink are the most popular colors but growers have produced beautiful shades of purple and orange. These plants will thrive in full sun to part shade. They grow happily in dry, even drought-like conditions and in fact may rot if we have a rainy summer season. Actually, this is one plant that thrives in “benign neglect” conditions. It benefits from fertilizer after blooming but generally forgives you if you forget. The bulbs in our yard were a Christmas gift and I have no idea of the variety (hardy or not). We planted them just for fun and have been rewarded with their red, showy flowers each May for the past seven years. In addition to the bulblets, you can propagate the amaryllis from seed. Collect the seed from the dried pod on the plant and sew immediately as the seed is paper thin and does not store well. Bulblets take two years to bloom and plants grown from seed usually take longer. Remember, for those of you with pets or small children, all of the parts of the amaryllis are poisonous. If you buy Amaryllis bulbs to force for the holidays, they require a minimum of six weeks of cold before planting. You may store them in your refrigerator at 40 to 50 degrees fahrenheit. Do not store with apples as they will render the Amaryllis bulb sterile. Karen Busby is a Master Gardener Volunteer with Cooperative Extension in Rowan County.

Nighttime noises make dad uncomfortable

this is completely inappropriate for the ears of a 12-yearold girl. — Awkward

ignore. Gender bias should not be allowed to exist in high school, and the coach who uttered those words should not be in a position of authority for young girls. — Mom in N.J.

Dear Awkward: After applying basic noise abatement, such as carpets covering the floor, you should speak with your neighbor. You don’t have to get graphic about this — merely a little clever. You introduce (or reintroduce) yourself and say, “I have custody of my young daughters every other weekend, and I hope they don’t bother you by being too noisy.” He will likely say, “No — I don’t even hear them.” Then you can say, “I assumed you could hear them because they can hear you and your girlfriend, especially at night.” You could hedge and tell your daughter that your neighbor is doing Pilates. Also — buy a “white noise” machine. Readers recommend them.

Dear Mom: I agree that gender bias has no place in high school (or anywhere), but I don’t quite see what about this remark is sexist. It is inappropriate (and pretty stupid), but sexist? If these coaches remarked on the daughter’s (or a son’s) athletic prowess by saying, “Blame it on your father,” would that also be sexist? I suggested the mother call the coaches on it directly, rather than making a federal case out of it. If they don’t apologize to the girl, she could take the issue to the administration. The mother should demonstrate to her daughter that when you have an issue, you handle it directly and if you receive an apology, you can then move on.

Dear Amy: Your advice to the mother of the high school sophomore who was told to “blame your mother” for not having “the genes” for the sport of lacrosse was way off base. The coach’s words were sexist and were in no way appropriate. The mother should definitely go over the heads of the coaches and talk directly to school administrators. The coaches should be called on the carpet for what they said by their employers, not by a concerned mom whom they will most likely

Dear Amy: I have several grandchildren, ages 18 to 28. I’ve always sent them birthday cards and presents for their birthdays. I recently had a birthday and received neither cards nor telephone calls from any of them. Am I too sensitive in thinking that they could well have bothered to take note of my birthday in some way? I’m debating whether to just send them birthday cards from now on and skip the presents. — Hurt

Frugal: A new twist on pizza dough Dear Kelly: Yes, you can. Here’s a recipe to try. 1-pound bag prepared pizza dough (or homemade) Filling 6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cubed and thawed to room temperature 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar 1 2 ⁄ cup finely chopped pecans, toasted and cooled 1 3 ⁄ cup jumbo raisins, soaked in hot water and drained 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon Glaze 1 cup powdered sugar 1 tablespoon milk 1 2 ⁄ teaspoon vanilla extract Preheat the oven to 400 F. Remove the pizza dough from the bag, cover with a clean towel, and let it thaw to room temperature and puff slightly (one to two hours). Meanwhile, prepare the filling; stir together the butter, brown SARA sugar, cooled NOEL p e c a n s , raisins and cinnamon until well combined. Grease a 13-by-9-inch baking dish. Place the pizza dough out onto a lightly floured surface (a Silpat or a nonstick silicone rolling mat really helps if you have one), and roll into a large rectangle with a 1⁄4-inch thickness using a rolling pin. Spread evenly with filling, leaving a 1-inch border. Roll up the dough as if you would a jellyroll. Trim off the ends, cut into 12 equal slices, and line up in the baking dish. Cover with a clean towel, and let the dough rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Prepare the glaze by whisking all the ingredients together, and set aside. Remove the towel from the baking dish, and bake the rolls for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden. Remove the rolls from the oven, and drizzle the glaze evenly over the rolls. Cool for 15 minutes before serving. — Tammy, Canada

Home sales looking up ncouraging news in the home sales business has surfaced in the Charlotte region, another sign that the recovery may be taking hold — or at least that tax credits make things happen. The Charlotte Regional Realtor Association says home sales last month were up 25.2 percent over April 2009, rising from 1,773 to 2,220. The average sales price also increased, though slightly, from $201,352 to $201,410. (In this case, the Charlotte region includes Alexander, Anson, Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Montgomery, Stanly and Union counties.) The April surge was driven partly by the federal homebuyer tax credit of up to $8,000, which ended April 30 for civilians. (Military personnel stationed overseas have another year.) But year-over-year home sales have been up for seven straight months in the Charlotte region and nine months across the nation, so the tax credit was not the only motivating factor. Its expiration, meanwhile, is motivating some people with homes on the market to reduce their asking price, according to reports. The bargain days for home buyers may not have expired after all. “Affordable home prices, low interest rates and the recent uptick in consumer confidence create a sense that the market is turning,” says Lyn Kessie, president of the Charlotte regional association. You expect Realtors to be bullish on home sales, but at the moment they have positive statistics on which to base sunny projections. Facts are facts. Sales are up. Foreclosures are still a sad fact of life, too. But steady activity in the real estate market could be part of the rising tide we all need.


Survivors Good news. Two North Carolina cities made the list of “20 Cities Surviving the Recession,” compiled by MainStreet and Yahoo Finance. Unfortunately, they’re both more than 90 miles away — Durham and Raleigh. The fact that Charlotte didn’t make the list is disappointing but probably realistic. The banking industry’s woes set the Queen City back. At any rate, it’s good to know the Triangle region is going strong. Others on the list include Austin, Texas; Huntsville, Ala.; Boston; San Francisco and Salt Lake City, all places where the list says “the recession is ending — and where you might be able to find a job.” Good for them. Hope that prosperity ripples out across North Carolina soon.

Moderately Confused

Saving Arizona • Enforcement would be a bargain ven as the Obama administration plans to challenge and undermine Arizona’s new immigration law, the White House still wants state residents to know that it feels their pain. “It’s really a cry of frustration from Arizona,” Homeland Security Secretary — and former Arizona governor — Janet NapoliBYRON tano said reYORK cently. “It’s a frustration ultimately that will only be solved with comprehensive immigration reform.” But for the majority of Arizonans, the source of frustration is not the absence of reform. It is the halfhearted enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws. And what is seldom discussed in the current controversy is how little — in relative terms — better enforcement would cost. On April 19, the same day the Arizona Legislature passed the immigration measure, the state’s two Republican senators, John McCain and Jon Kyl, unveiled a new plan to secure the U.S. border with Mexico. It’s a combination of completing and improving the border fence, adding new Border Patrol agents, expanding a policy of briefly jailing illegal border crossers and several other programs already in existence. Although there is not yet an estimate of how much it would cost, the price would be vastly less than the sums going to bailouts, the stimulus and the health-care system. “When you are talking


about national security and laying the foundation for comprehensive immigration reform, it’s a relatively small investment,” says Kyl. Start with the fence. The Secure Fence Act, passed by Congress in 2006, specified 700 miles of the Southwest border to be secured with double-layered, reinforced fencing and other physical barriers. The Customs and Border Protection agency says 646 miles of fencing have been finished. For them, the job is essentially done. But it’s not, and the situation in Arizona shows why. The state’s border with Mexico is 375 miles long. As it stands today, there are 123 miles of pedestrian fence, that is, high fence meant to stop people from climbing over. However, all but 10 miles of that is single-layered fence, which is easier to cut and get through than a double-layered fence. In addition, there are 182 miles of vehicle fencing — bollards or steel beams designed to stop smugglers in cars and trucks. But illegals can easily climb over these, and sometimes smugglers can drive over them using their own ramps. The Kyl-McCain plan would require double- and even triplelayer fencing in several areas of the border and beefed-up barriers in others. How much would it cost? Given that much of the basic structure already exists, perhaps $1 million per mile. Revamp the whole 700 miles, and it’s $700 million. Kyl and McCain would add 3,000 new Border Patrol agents. A back-of-the-envelope cost estimate is about $100 million

per 1,000 new agents, so the plan would cost about $300 million. The proposal also calls for hiring more U.S. marshals, clerks and administrative staff. Then there is the jailing program, Operation Streamline, which sends illegal crossers to jail for 15 to 60 days. When it has been tried selected areas, it has caused the illegal crossing rates to plummet. “Very effective,” says McCain. The senators are waiting for an estimate of how much an expanded Operation Streamline would cost. There are other expenses. For example, McCain and Kyl want to send a few thousand National Guard troops to the border. When this was done in 2007 and 2008, it cost $1 billion. There is little doubt such moves would work. In one part of the Arizona-Mexico border where authorities installed double-layered fencing and use Operation Streamline, the yearly number of illegal crossers went from 118,000 to 8,000. For a relatively low price — perhaps $5 billion? — the nation could radically increase the security of the Southwest border. The columnist George Will recently called the cost of securing the border “a rounding error on the ($50 billion) GM bailout.” He’s right. As Kyl and McCain see it, Napolitano has things turned around. Today’s problem won’t be solved by comprehensive immigration reform. Instead, solving the problem would make comprehensive reform possible — and a bargain, too. • • • Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.

• Latino political potential is target o what’s really going on in Arizona? They have serious problems to solve — with job losses greater than Michigan, a housing foreclosure conundrum and budget problems exceeding those of California. You would think a creative state government would scheme to JOSE build revenues, restructure an DE LA ISLA economy and avoid alienating a third of its citizens. Well, think again. Studies have already shown that illegal immigration — a problem not to be taken lightly — is down in that state. Yet, the community of non-citizens contributes about $1.5 billion to the state economy, according to a 2008 University of Arizona study. The last economic output estimate, in 2004, showed immigrant workers put in $44 billion ($29 billion for non-citizens), amounting to 400,000 full-time jobs. After public costs, there’s a net $940 million positive immigrant impact in Arizona. So, if it’s not economics, maybe crime is the problem. But, according to the FBI, crime is not increasing in Arizona. So what’s the anger and meanness all about? Gadfly journalist Greg Palast says the real issue is not about “illegal” immigrants but instead about legal Latinos. Writing for The Guardian, a


British publication, Palast says GOP Gov. Jan Brewer signed the “Soviet-style” law (his words, not mine) giving authorities unprecedented latitude to ask for citizenship papers of virtually anyone they choose, not because of the unresolved federal issue about illegal immigration but as a social control measure to make legal Hispanics a suspicious class of people. Why? Because of their rising numbers and their 2-to-1 voting pattern for Democrats. Following the 2004 election, Brewer was responsible for purging 100,000 mostly Hispanic registrants, who were blocked from voting. In 2005, one in three Phoenix residents found their registration applications blocked. As secretary of state, in 2008, Brewer organized a racially tinged purge of the voter rolls. This is an old tactic in Arizona. Back to 1970, Raul Castro, former Pima County (Tucson) attorney and a Lyndon Johnson ambassador, ran for governor. The Republican-dominated legislature called for re-registration of the electoral rolls. People with language barriers could not respond quickly enough. Republican Jack Williams won over Castro with 50.9 percent of the vote. In 1974, Castro ran again. This time, he defeating Williams, with a 9,000-vote margin coming from the Navajo Nation, as the rest of the state virtually deadlocked. The Arizona law giving state and local authorities incredible discretion to ask for

citizenship papers is a new trick for an old purpose. It attempts to make Latinos a class apart and maybe suppress their voting potential through social humiliation, when their legitimacy is in question like few other people in the state. The Arizona law tries to stall or reverse a trend that is well advanced. Democrat Bill Clinton carried the state in 1996 and Janet Napolitano, another Democrat, was twice elected governor. Five of Arizona’s eight U.S. House members are Democrats. And the Hispanic population is reaching the 30-percent mark. Palast sees the Hispanics who live here legally are the real target of the state’s crackdown on undocumented immigrants. The Latino political potential is rocketing, as greater numbers of the burgeoning young population reaches voting age. He projects, “Republicans know their party will soon be electoral toast.” The expectation that U.S. Latino citizens, hung with the “illegal-alien” stigma, would cower and not vote and hand over a victory to the manipulative and undeserving, is a tactic of the past. Today, you get a push back through a mounting economic and sports boycott of the state. Why? Because everybody can tell an intended persecution when they see it. • • • Jose de la Isla writes a weekly commentary for Hispanic Link News Service. Email him at joseisla3@

Someone left a copy of a local magistrate’s Facebook page in my mailbox which left me speechless, and the following is a quote from that page. “DEAR LORD, THIS YEAR YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTOR, PATRICK SWAYZIE. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTRESS, FARAH FAWCETT. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE SINGER, MICHAEL JACKSON. I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW, MY FAVORITE PRESIDENT IS BARACK OBAMA. AMEN.” I am sure that the people of Salisbury and Rowan County would be appalled to know that someone working for the state of North Carolina in the magistrate’s office is making his views of hate so widely known. I have had just about enough of Mr. Joe McGee talking and making derogatory statements about the poor, the hurting and African Americans. First it was the lower 20 per cent, then inappropriate remarks about a murder investigation and now wishing for the death of our president. When will someone step up to the plate and say enough! I understand the process of appointing the magistrates comes from the Clerk of Court, Mr. Jeff Barger, and the senior Superior Court judge makes the appointments. Then the matter goes to Judge Charlie Brown for supervision of the magistrates. My question to Judge Brown: Is Mr. McGee expressing your views as well? Mr. Brown, I know you, and my interaction with you has always been friendly and polite. I have never felt that you would tolerate this kind of behavior. I hope that I am wrong on this call. Something has to be done. This person is a “loose cannon,” and I would hate to go to that office and run into him. It is now time for Mr. Brown to act. Who knows what the other magistrates may or may not be saying about the people that come to that office? At least we do not have to read about it on Facebook and in the Salisbury Post. — deedee wright Salisbury

Softball thrown into mix surrounding Supreme Court nominee BY EDDIE PELLS Associated Press


This 1993 photo provided by the University of Chicago Law School shows Elena Kagan playing softball at the school.

Softball, that friendly, fun game many Americans grow up playing, suddenly finds itself entangled in a hardball debate about sexual orientation, editorial judgment and the future of the Supreme Court. It all stems from speculation in the media that Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is a lesbian. Sparking the interest was a nearly two-decades-old picture of Kagan playing softball on the front page of Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal. That quickly morphed into an online debate about whether

the paper used the photo to make a point — essentially, that if she plays softball, she must be gay. The president of the International Softball Federation, Don Porter felt the need to weigh in. He insists softball is for everyone, regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation. “The media has chosen to try to put a label on athletes who play this sport,” he said. “I’ve heard more about softball that way in one week than I did about our sport, period, in one year during” the campaign to get softball back in the Olympics. “While it’s good to hear our sport mentioned in the major

media during the past few days, it has been more in a negative sense than positive,” he said. Those who play and coach were equally dismayed. “We’ve come so far,” said Jessica Mendoza, a two-time Olympian and president of the Women’s Sports Foundation, “and to have even one person think that showing a photo would correlate with someone’s orientation, I want to yell out and say, ‘Where have you been? Look around.’ ” But stereotypes run deep. Those about female athletes go back at least to the days when a girl with some athletic promise immediately got the label “tomboy,” because,

for instance, she could throw a baseball far. Or, in other words, because she didn’t “throw like a girl.” “It is shocking, that here we are in the 21st century and something like this is being brought up,” two-time Olympian Jennie Finch said. Her former teammate,

Stacey Nuveman, agrees. “In the sporting community, having gay and lesbian players on teams is more accepted and a known entity than it once was,” she said. “But it’s still something that, in the general landscape of things, we have a long way to go.”

The data were analyzed at the Research Campus. Jia’s team is using a new approach called metabolomics to analyze the samples. “This could change the way cancer is diagnosed,” he said. Conventional lab tests to diagnose cancer focus on finding one or two markers, he said. But metabolomics studies the complete set of chemical components and byproducts involved in human metabolism. “We make no as-

The cartels have been competing for drug trafficking routes and turf. “They’ve had violence like they’ve never had before,” Bayer said. But the group’s mission work goes on, and its major fundraiser is this weekend. The TWAM group is holding a 5K Mission Run on Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. at Salisbury Community Park on Hurley School Road, with all of the proceeds going to missions. The group has held this fundraiser for five years. “There is no specific goal, just whatever we are able to raise,” Bayer said. “It’s our most successful fundraiser that we do throughout the year.” Last year the youth raised $8,000, mostly through sponsorships. The group also does mission work in and

They’re already analyzing breast cancer samples in Kannapolis to find markers in the blood that could be used for early detection of cancer and to evaluate different stages of cancer, Jia said. As an evaluation tool, metabolomics could tell doctors which patients will respond well to a certain drug and which ones won’t, he said. “That can help us to perform personalized medicine,”

he said. Industry has approached Jia about partnering to commercialize blood and urine tests for colorectal cancer screening. But his research is still in the discovery phase, he said. “We don’t feel like we need to make any commitments at this point,” he said. Eventually, the tests would require approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which could take three to five years.

The cost to participate is $20 for the 5K and $15 for the fun run. TWAM’s 20 youth and 10 adults will travel to Jamaica in July. “We will be working at a school for deaf children, doing repairs and leading vacation Bible School,” Bayer said. They may also get to work at an orphanage. Last year TWAM was not able to go to Reynosa because of the H1N1 outbreak, so the group went to Kentucky instead. There is hope that one day they’ll return to Reynosa. “We haven’t ruled it out. We will watch it very closely,” she said. The church has had regular e-mail communication with their contacts in Reynosa, receiving regular updates about the violence. “It’s been devastating to the people and they are real devastated that no one has come to build homes, but the safety of the volunteers is the most important thing. It’s been a challenge,” Bayer said. For more information about the 5K Mission Run, contact First Presbyterian Church at 704636-1321.

East blanks Carson

Staff report


STATESVILLE — Speed paid diviE. Rowan 7 dends twice Carson 0 for East Rowan’s softball team Thursday. It paid off first when the top-seeded Mustangs raced to a six-run fifth inning that keyed a 7-0 win against Carson in the NPC tournament championship game. It paid off again when East shortstop Ericka Nesbitt and p i t c h e r NESBITT C h e l s e a White chased down elusive coach Mike Waddell for the traditional Gatorade bath to celebrate. “I saw it coming and had already passed off the trophy and taken off my hat,” Waddell said with a laugh. “But Ericka’s really fast, and Chelsea was keeping up with her.” Nesbitt is quick, even lugging full orange buckets. She scored a direct hit on assistant coach Sandy Basinger, victim of Gatorade Bath No. 2. “Pretty sneaky,” Waddell said. “No one’s ever expecting that second one.” Nesbitt’s wheels helped her go 4-for-4. Center fielder Kayla Kirk also had a big day with two hits and two RBIs. She drove in Nesbitt with the biggest run — the first one. Carson pitcher Megan Meismer breezed through two innings and got two more quick outs in third. But Nesbitt extended the third with a single and stole second. Kirk, who usually bunts or slaps, was next. With Carson’s infield drawn way in to defend her, Kirk surprised everyone with a soft liner

Cavs in contention North track teams go for titles at 1A state meet BY BRET STRELOW

The track and field teams from North Rowan will have a chance to unseat back-to-back champions at today’s 1A state meet in Greensboro. North’s girls, led by Teaunna Cuthbertson and Tinka Bush, are considered the favorite. Winston-Salem Prep, which finished sixth in a Midwest

Regional won by the Cavaliers, captured 1A titles in 2008 and 2009. The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics is believed to be North’s biggest challenger. On the boys side, ARCHIE Garland Archie and Sam Starks are standouts for a North

team that’s slightly favored in a group of contenders including Midwest Regional runner-up Mount Airy, Princeton, Hendersonville, Monroe and Robbinsville. Hendersonville won 1A championships in 2008 and 2009. North is in its first season of 1A competition. The boys have won nine 2A titles, with the last one coming in 2007.

Hornets send five to Cary BY BRET STRELOW


Salisbury’s Steven Page is undefeated in singles play this season.

Steven Page and a pair of titlewinning doubles teams will represent Salisbury at the 2A championships that begin today in Cary. Page and the tandem of Austin FlynnAlan Lebowitz enter as Midwest Regional champions. Seth Gentry and Alex Weant, who beat FLYNN Flynn-Lebowitz in their conference tournament final, are the No. 4 seed out of the Midwest. Page (24-0) reached the 2A quarterfinals last season as a sophomore, and he will face East No. 4 seed

Armando Gonzalez of Tarboro in this year’s opening round. The other regional champions are Topsail’s Jordan Bailey (East), St. Pauls’ Ethan Caudell (Mideast) and Newton-Conover’s Austin Adams (West). Bailey, a 1A semifinalist last season, is in Page’s half of the draw. Adams is the No. 6 player on the state’s top-ranked 2A team, and Caudell is the defending 2A champion. A senior with only one career singles loss, he is 21-0 this year. He played doubles at states as a freshman and sophomore. In doubles, Flynn-Lebowitz (18-3) will face East No. 4 seed Andrew Burchins-Kevin Cunningham of Croatan in the first round.


Senior Craige Lyerly was hit by a Columbus St. 5 pitch in Catawba 0 the fourth inning to extend his amazing on-base streak to 87 consecutive games, but that was one of the few positives for Catawba’s baseball team in a 5-0 loss to Columbus S t a t e ’ s Cougars in the first round of the S o u t h e a s t LYERLY Regional Tournament on Thursday. The afternoon loss to the nation’s fourth-ranked team in steamy Florence, S.C., put Catawba in today’s 11 a.m. elimination game against top-seeded Francis Marion. Ranked 25th nationally in Division II, Catawba (40-12) never solved Columbus State right-hander Thomas Campbell, who struck out 12 and allowed three hits. He needed just 97 pitches to toss his first complete game of the season for the second-seeded Cougars (43-10). Campbell got a lot of outs with changeups and had five innings in which he faced only three hitters. “We ran into a good arm, and he got some confidence and just kept building on it,” Catawba coach Jim Gantt said. Catawba starter Trevor Mullins (8-3) exited after three innings with the Indians down 3-0. He wasn’t effective, and Gantt lifted him early with the idea he may be available if Catawba can survive past today in the double-elimination event. “Trevor was laboring, didn’t have his good stuff, just didn’t have his breaking ball,” Gantt said. “The twoweek layoff he had didn’t help.” Ryan Lewis (4-for-5) doubled home Jason Rogers to put Columbus State on top in the first inning. The Cougars added two runs in the third and two more in the eighth. Catawba’s bullpen kept it close until the eighth. Clay Watson got four outs, and Travis McSweeney had a strong outing. Catawba had only four baserunners besides Lyerly. Brett Underwood had a double in the third, Corey Parker singled in the sixth and John Neese had a single in the seventh. Wade Moore drew a walk in the ninth. Gantt said the Indians would send freshman lefthander Nick Lomascolo to the mound today. 

NOTES: “Lomo” is 7-2 with a 3.44 ERA. ... Columbus State DH Wes Adkins was hit by pitches three times, one shy of the school and NCAA single-game record. ... Host Francis Marion was upset 4-3 by No. 6 seed Erskine on Thursday. ... No. 3 Georgia College & State knocked off No. 4 seed Mount Olive 4-3 in the other first-round game.

North soccer completes strong season Staff report

North Rowan’s girls soccer team capped a strong season with a long-awaited playoff appearance. The Cavaliers fell 2-0 on Wednesday night against YVC rival North Moore, which scored twice late in the second half.

The Cavaliers finished fourth in the YVC, entered the playoffs as a wild card and completed the season with eight victories. SOKOLOWSKI North had three players — Meredith Sokolowski, Jade Lomax and Daisy Lemke — make the all-conference team.

Baseball playoffs kick into full swing Staff report

First-round baseball playoff games are set for tonight with five county teams, A.L. Brown, Northwest Cabarrus and Davie in action. Six of those eight teams must get on a bus. All games are expected to start at 7 p.m., with the exception of Carson’s game at Marvin Ridge. The Waxhaw-based Mavericks don’t have lights, so first pitch is set for 5 p.m. It’s hard to believe West Rowan isn’t headed somewhere. The Falcons were one of just two teams to beat East Rowan this season, but they didn’t qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2002.  NPC champion East Rowan (23-2) is at home at Staton Field to face SPC No. 4 Concord in a 3A contest. East is expected to send right-handed UNC Pembroke signee Thomas Allen (8-1, 1.59 ERA, 67 Ks) to the mound. East doesn’t have its usual power (catcher Luke Thomas has hit five of the team’s nine homers), but deep pitching and tight defense make the Mustangs a threat to make a nice run. Players to watch for Concord include leadoff man Dylan Pack, shortstop/pitcher Eric Brenk and slugging catcher Corey Smith.  No. 4 NPC seed South Rowan goes to Weddington to face a No. 1 seed. Senior lefty Dylan Walker (6-3, 2.44 ERA, 50 Ks) is certain to go to the bump for the Raiders. South shortstop Maverick Miles (seven homers, .587 average) is a likely draft pick. Center fielder Blake Houston (.481), a Catawba signee, has been red-hot. For South fans going to Weddington, AD Danny Crosby offered these directions: Take I-85 South. Get on 485 South (exit 48, go toward Rock Hill). Take Exit 57 off 485 (NC16/Providence Road, toward Weddington). Go left on Providence Road for 2.8 miles. Turn left onto Weddington road and proceed about 3 miles. The school address is 4901 Monroe-Weddington Rd.  If there’s a game everyone’s talking about, it’s No. 3 seed Carson’s long trip to Marvin Ridge, a No. 2 seed, Several neutral coaches have remarked that they’d pay to see that first-round matchup. Two good teams. One of them’s going to be eliminated right away. Senior lefty Jesse Park (6-2, 2.72 ERA, 52 Ks) is the likely hurler for the Cougars. Carson junior shortstop Gunnar Hogan has 34 RBIs. Second baseman


Carson’s Kyle Bridges inches down the line as East infielder Noah Holmes gets set. Julio Zubillaga, a Catawba signee, anchors the defense.  Salisbury, the CCC No. 3 seed, has a tough assignment in 2A against Rocky River No. 1 West Stanly. But it wasn’t that long ago — 2006 to be exact — that the Hornets shocked a 24-2 West Stanly team in a first-round matchup. Lefty Philip Tonseth (4-2, 3.71 ERA) is a potential starter for the Hornets. First baseman Jeremy Forbis (.432) and shortstop John Knox (.342, three homers) have been offensive leaders .  North Rowan got into the 1A playoffs as a wild card and travels to Cherryville. Lefty Josh Price (5-1) has been North’s most effective pitcher. Outfielder Matt Mauldin (.477) and shortstop Wesley Barker (.444) are enjoying banner offensive seasons.  A.L. Brown visits Charlotte Catholic, a bitter football rival. Wonders coach Empsy Thompson quipped Thursday that

he hopes the Cougars won’t come out in the Wing-T. The Wonders, No. 5 seed out of the SPC, are obvious underdogs, but Catawba signee John J. Tuttle (6-2, 1.60 ERA, 62 Ks) will be on the mound. Brown has a chance against anyone when the lean right-hander pitches. Senior infielder Wesley Honeycutt sparks the offense.  Surging Northwest Cabarrus (18-9), the SPC No. 1 seed, is home against Southwestern Randolph. Sophomore Corey Seager and seniors Justin Seager and John Wallace lead an explosive squad that has five quality arms and is one of the hottest teams around.  Davie (11-11) is an underdog at Providence in the 4A playoffs, but the War Eagles have played better of late. Power-hitting catcher Jacob Barber and shortstop Carson Herndon swing big bats for the War Eagles. Both are juniors.

James again falls short of ultimate goal BY BRIAN MAHONEY Associated Press

BOSTON — A comeback seemed in LeBron James’ grasp, until he fumbled it away. There will be no title this year in Cleveland. And James will have to decide if it’s time to go look for it elsewhere. Helped by James’ costly turnover early in the fourth quarter, the Boston Celtics pulled away to beat the Cavaliers 94-85 on Thursday night, ending the Eastern Conference semifinal series and starting Cleveland’s summer of anxiety. James still had his sixth postseason triple-double, finishing with 27 points, 19 rebounds and 10 assists. He did all he could for the Cavaliers. And maybe that’s the last he’ll ever do for them. James said a friend told him that you have to go through a lot of nightmares before you accomplish your dreams. The kid from Akron will have to determine if those dreams can ever come in Cavs colors. “I want to win. That’s my only thing, my only concern,” James said. “It’s all about winning for me and I


LEBRON JAMES think the Cavs is committed to doing that, but at the same time I’ve given myself options to this point.” Battling a sprained right elbow and a former champion that believes it has another title in it, James struggled for most of the last three games. Still, he looked ready to bring the Cavs back in this one, hitting consecutive 3-pointers to cut Boston’s lead to four at 78-74 with 9:35 left. He was dribbling with little pressure on the Cavs’ next possession when he suddenly lost the ball. Rajon Rondo grabbed the loose ball and

turned it into a layup, igniting a gamebreaking 10-0 run that made it 88-74. All that was left from there were a few more taunts about James’ future — specifically, that it might not be in Cleveland. The Cavaliers knew they were on the clock from the moment James signed his last contract, in July of 2006. Rather than sign for the maximum length of six years, he went for the option to become a free agent this summer. Boston’s Kevin Garnett, who spent many losing years in Minnesota without asking out before finally getting traded to Boston in 2008, seemed to think leaving home might be best for James. “Loyalty is something that hurts you at times because you can’t get youth back,” Garnett said, adding that if he’d known how things would be when he got out to Boston, “I’d have done it a little sooner.” Cleveland worked feverishly to build a team that would be too good for James to consider walking away from, but all it’s really managed was a great regular-season one that’s never really come all that close to a title. The Cavs were easily swept

This offseason is destined to define the future of the franchise — and the rest of the NBA, too. The LeBron watch began at 10:53 p.m., when Rondo dribbled out the last 14 seconds and the Celtics began celebrating their 4-2 victory in the best-of-seven series. James is eligible to opt out of his contract this summer, a move that would make the two-time MVP — and zero-time NBA champion — a free agent and set off a scramble for his services from New York to Miami to Los Angeles and, of course, back in Cleveland. “I want to win. That’s my only thing, my only concern,” James said. “I’ve always prided myself — it’s all about winning for me and I think the Cavs are committed to doing that. But at the same time, I’ve given myself options to this point. Me and my team, we have a game plan that we’ll execute and we’ll see where we’re at.” James scored 27 points with 10 assists, and his 19 rebounds matched a career-high and were the most he’s ever had in a playoff game. But he also had nine turnovers, and he may have been hobbled by an elbow injury that limited him to dunks and short jumpers, going 8 for 21 from the floor overall. “I just told him, ‘Keep your head up, man. I’ve been there,’ ” said Garnett, who was a star without a title in Minnesota for more than a decade before joining the Celtics and leading them to their NBA-record 17th championship in 2008. “’You have a very, very, very bright future. Continue to work and make decisions based on you and your family.”’ Mo Williams scored 20 of his 22 points in the first half for the Cavaliers. Boston’s Paul Pierce scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half after playing just nine minutes — and shooting 1-for-5 — in the first with foul trouble. The Celtics had missed their first eight 3-point attempts when Pierce hit a 3 that gave them a 65-58 lead with 4:06 left in the third. It was 67-61 when Rasheed Wallace hit a 3-pointer, and then Ray Allen stole James’ pass and got the ball to Pierce for another 3 that completed a 16-4 run. James hadn’t made an outside shot before hitting backto-back 3-pointers to cut it to four points, 78-74, early in the fourth quarter and force the Celtics to call a timeout. But Rondo drove for a layup, then set Pierce up for another 3. Pierce found Wallace for a 3-pointer and then Tony Allen’s steal led to a Garnett dunk at the other end that sent the Cavaliers into a timeout to regroup, down 88-74 with 5:53 left in their season. “You knew it was coming at some point with LeBron,” said Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who reminded his players that they weren’t good enough to take over the game. “That’s what that timeout was about: to remind them that we can’t do that, what LeBron was doing.” It was the second straight year Cleveland has finished the regular-season with the

the thought of a future without James. They had the NBA’s best record and expected to be playing into June, but found their supporting cast wasn’t good enough on nights when James was human. After scoring 38 points in Game 3, he managed only 37 over the next two games, perhaps bothered by the elbow. He shot down internet speculation of a torn ligament before the game, but clearly wasn’t himself. As for the severity of the injury, James would only say: “I’ve got a lot of time to think about it now.” He went more than 19 minutes of game time without a basket from early in the second quarter until late in the third. Balls were stripped from his powerful hands, and those normally pinpoint passes were thrown behind teammates or at their feet. Still, he somehow ended up with a triple-double. Only 25, he will surely win a title someday. Nobody knows yet where it will be. “You hope for things that’s much brighter than what’s going on right now,” James said. “I’ll come back a better player next season and I still have the same goals.”

aside in the 2007 NBA finals, lost in the second round twice in the last three years to Boston, and were upset by Orlando in last year’s conference finals. The Cavs can still offer him the comforts of home and around $30 million more than any team, but several others make enticing pitches comes July 1:  The Knicks can afford James and another superstar, and the chance to make basketball matter again at Madison Square Garden.  The Heat can pair him with Dwyane Wade with winter weather he could only dream of in Ohio.  The Bulls can fit him between a young core of Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah and allow him to pick up winning titles where Michael Jordan left off. James has never said he wanted to leave the Cavs, but there’s long been speculation that he’d be willing to bolt for a larger market. Fans certainly seized on that idea Thursday, chanting “New York Knicks! New York Knicks!” when the two-time MVP shot free throws. The Cavs thought they’d have more time before they had to face

2nd Annual

Children’s Miracle Network


Boston’s Rajon Rondo (9) slams into Anderson Varejao. No. 1 overall seed, and the second in a row that they have failed to get out of the East. Last year, they lost to Orlando in the conference finals, an exit that left James so shaken he skulked off the court without shaking hands. This year, he might not stop until he finds himself in a new city. James seemed like he couldn’t wait to slip off his Cavaliers jersey, pulling it off as soon as he reached the tunnel to the locker room. He casually flipped it to an attendant moments after he walked into the dressing room. Brown said he wasn’t ready

to think about the future yet. “Obviously, he’s a heck of a talent and a great guy,” he said. “But right now we just lost the series. I’m not thinking of that. It wouldn’t be fair to everyone in that locker room to think beyond tonight.” The sold-out Boston crowd taunted his every free throw with a chant of “New York Knicks!” and fans wore Knicks jerseys with his name o them. The only “M-V-P!” cheers were not for James, who was the league’s best player in the regular season, but for Rondo, who was the best player in this series.

Latos almost perfect Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Mat Latos knows he might have pitched a perfect game if he only could have blocked Eli Whiteside’s comebacker. The 22-year-old righty replayed that one a few times in his head afterward, and how could he not? It was his lone blemish. L a t o s threw a onehitter, allowing just the sixth-inning infield single that deflected LATOS off him, and he also drove in the lone run to lead the San Diego Padres past the San Francisco Giants 1-0 on Thursday for a three-game sweep. Latos (3-3) retired the first 15 batters before Whiteside opened the sixth with a one hopper that hit off the pitcher’s glove hand and bounced toward shortstop. Third baseman Chase Headley’s throw to first wasn’t in time. “You just try to get it there as quick as you can,” Headley said. “It would have been nice if that went our way.” Latos outdueled Jonathan Sanchez, who no-hit San Diego last July. Latos struck out six in a 106-pitch gem that ended in 2 hours, 6 minutes. “Everything came together today,” Latos said. “The comebacker, I should have stopped that, knocked it down. If I knock the ball down I’ve got a chance to throw him out.” Astros 4, Cardinals 1 ST. LOUIS — Bud Norris shut down St. Louis for the fourth straight time, Hunter Pence hit a three-run homer after a testy exchange and Houston wrapped up a threegame sweep of the Cardinals. Though he’s 8-7 with a 5.10 ERA lifetime, Norris is 4-0 with a 0.35 ERA in four career starts against St. Louis. The Astros scored all four runs in the third, perhaps taking advantage of Chris Carpenter’s temper. Carpenter (4-1) and Carlos Lee had a staredown and then exchanged words after Lee popped out with two runners on base, leading to both benches and bullpens streaming on the field. Pence was next up with two outs, and he homered to put Houston ahead 4-0. Marlins 2, Mets 1 MIAMI — Cody Ross scored from third on a wild pitch by Fernando Nieve with one out in the ninth inning. AMERICAN LEAGUE Royals 6, Indians 4 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Royals fired manager Trey Hillman immediately after Zack Greinke earned his first win in eight starts. Hillman was in his third season with Kansas City and went 152-207. Former Brewers manager Ned Yost, who had joined the Royals’ front office in January, took over the team. Rangers 2, Athletics 1 (12) ARLINGTON, Texas — Vladimir Guerrero hit an RBI single in the 12th inning. Oakland’s Jake Fox had three hits, including a single in the fourth on a pitch from C.J. Wilson that umpires had signaled was a balk. Because Fox hit the ball, the A’s by rule got to choose which to take — so Fox wound up with a base hit and Wilson wasn’t charged with a balk. Wilson got called for another balk in the seventh, when he flinched his body while still on the rubber without delivering a pitch. Catcher Matt Treanor was facing the mound when he got tossed for a conversation with umpire Bob Davidson. “That was Balkin’ Bob back there,” manager Ron Washington said. Tigers 6, Yankees 0 DETROIT — Justin Verlander pitched shutout ball into the seventh, Miguel Cabrera tagged CC Sabathia and the Tigers handed the Yankees just their second series loss. Orioles 6, Mariners 5 BALTIMORE — Luke Scott hit a grand slam to cap a fiverun eighth inning against reliever Brandon League, and the Orioles held on to beat Seattle when left fielder Corey Patterson nailed Josh Wilson at the plate for the final out. Wilson tried to score on Ichiro Suzuki’s single.

was hospitalized, although Vickers was scheduled to visit Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., on Thursday and tour the Capitol with U.S. Rep Doc Hastings. Red Bull said Casey Mears will replace Vickers this weekend in the No. 83 Toyota. “It is unfortunate that I will not be able to participate in the Dover race,” Vickers said in a statement. “Casey is a good friend of mine, and I know he will do his best for the No. 83 team this weekend. Red Bull general manager Jay Frye called Vickers’ illness a “minor setback.” “Our main concern right now is with Brian and his health and

recovery,” Frye said. “All things are looking good at the moment, this is just a minor setback. We appreciate Casey filling in this weekend and know he will represent the team well.” The 26-year-old Vickers is in his seventh full season racing in NASCAR’s elite Sprint Cup Series. He has two career Cup wins and made the 12-driver Chase for the championship last season. He’s currently ranked 20th in the standings but is only 160 points out of the 12th Chase qualifying position. Missing a start almost certainly will make it impossible for Vickers to make the Chase this season.

Cushing denies drug use Associated Press

HOUSTON — Texans linebacker Brian Cushing said he never used any banned substances even though he tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug. Cushing was suspended for four games without pay last week for violating the NFL’s drug policy. His appeal was denied. Cushing confirmed he tested positive for HCG, a fertility drug that is on the league’s banned substance list. “The question of how it got into my body is still unclear,” he said. “It’s something that I’m very personally concerned about, just the fact that how it’s there and what’s going to determine it from happening again, and that’s something we’re going to have to medically investigate.” He said that after failing the test, he was told HCG can get in your body from injecting it or because of tumors. He said this information led him to believe he had tumors. He did not say what kind of tumors.  GRETNA, La. — Former New Orleans Saints security director Geoffrey Santini withdrew his lawsuit against the club because the team’s lawyers are sending the matter to arbitration. Santini’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit stated that Saints attorneys waited more than a week after the lawsuit was initially filed to advise Santini they intended to invoke an arbitration clause in his employment contract rather than fight his civil lawsuit in district court.  MINNEAPOLIS — The NFL is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a decision that allowed Minnesota Vikings defensive linemen Kevin and Pat Williams to challenge their four-game suspensions for violating the league’s anti-drug policy. The NFL cited the National Labor Relations Act in its filing, saying its collective bargaining agreement with the players’ union protects its drug policy from lawsuits in state courts.  LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors say they will not file criminal charges against former NFL running back Corey Dillon, who was arrested earlier this month after an argument with his wife.

NHL WILMINGTON, Mass. — The Boston Bruins seem calm going into Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals after blowing a 3-0 lead to the Philadelphia Flyers. The Bruins practiced for about an hour Thursday after losing 2-1 the previous night as the Flyers evened the series at 3-all. Boston coach Claude Julien said the team can’t fear playing in tonight’s deciding game, especially on its home ice. He sensed from Thursday’s workout that the Bruins are ready for the challenge of pulling out the series. Only three teams in the NHL, NBA and Major League Baseball have won a sevengame series after losing the first three — the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, the 1975 New York Islanders and the 2004 Boston Red Sox. The Flyers are the first NHL team since the 1975 Islanders to even force a Game 7 after trailing 3-0.  GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Phoenix Coyotes have traded the rights to forward Jared Staal to the Carolina Hurricanes for a fifth-round pick in the upcoming NHL draft.

Non-residential customers would see DSM/EE rider changes ranging from a decrease of 0.0131 cents per kilowatt-hour to an increase of 0.0554 cents per kilowatthour, depending upon their participation in Duke's DSM or EE programs. Industrial and large commercial customers that have, under G.S. 62-133.9, opted out of and never participated in Duke's DSM and EE programs are not subject to the rider. Nonresidential customers may obtain detailed information about the rider increases or decreases applicable to their particular circumstances by contacting their Duke account representatives directly or Duke's Customer Service number at 1-800-7779898.

Can I refuse? He discounts the heavy-duty resistance exercises I do daily. Dear Reader: Yes, you can. Your physician can strongly recommend a medication or course of treatment and indicate why he feels it is necessary, but the bottom line is that it’s your body. I am sure that he has your best interests at heart, but perhaps a calcium plus vitamin D supplement will suffice. Therefore, before getting into any shouting match, I suggest you speak with him and review all options. Dr. Peter H.

John Webster, an English playwright who died in 1625, said, “Man may his fate foresee, but not prevent.... ’Tis better to be fortunate than wise.” That’s absolute rubbish for a bridge player! If you can see how to control the fate of your contract, you can (almost always) prevent defeat. Also, wisdom is good. But I suppose if you cannot be wise, being fortunate is better than nothing. And being wise and fortunate is best of all. Let’s see how wise you are in this deal. How would you try to make three no-trump after West leads the spade seven and you capture East’s queen with your king? The auction is straightforward. With no single-

ton or void, North is right to jump to three no-trump. He should not worry about the spade weakness — that is opener’s responsibility.

With seven top tricks (one spade, three hearts, one diamond and two clubs), you must score two more club tricks. So, you can afford to lose one club trick as long as the opponents cannot then cash too many spades. What is the spade position? The first trick marked West with the spade ace, because East, playing third hand high, would have put up the ace if he held it. So you need to keep East off the lead; otherwise, he will push a spade through your jack and West will run the suit. We say that East is the danger hand. To do this, be wise and ignore “nine never.” Play a club to dummy’s ace, then lead a low club to your jack. If West could win with the queen, your contract would be safe. Here, though, the finesse wins and you get home with an overtrick.

Dear Reader: There’s an old expression that says, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” I have reviewed their ad and can certainly see how some people might be swayed to join the plan. And, for all I know, it may be legitimate. The company is based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The website is impressive, there are no copays, no deductibles and the prices are inviting. They do indicate that all drugs shipped are generic equivalents and not brand-name drugs. Unfortunately, there are some medications that do not yet have generic equivalents. I guess those would either be unavailable through BTM or would be shipped at a higher price. I must say I was put off by the fact that I can make inquiries through the same site to purchase airline tickets,

car insurance and inquire about foreclosures as well. Call me naive, but personally, I’d like to know that my pharmaceutical supplier is just that — my pharmaceutical supplier. When I choose to purchase auto insurance, I’ll go to my local agent. When I attempted to run BTM through the Better Business Bureau, I came up empty. Giving them the benefit of the doubt, perhaps I didn’t follow through correctly. The U.S. federal government issued a statement some 3-1/2 years ago indicating it was generally illegal for individuals to import prescription drugs into the United States, but Customs had largely ignored small shipments for personal use. Since then, our government has taken an almost hands-off approach and allowed the trafficking to continue. If you happen to have a Wal-Mart in your area, a onemonth supply of many medications is available for $4, a three-month supply for $10. And they ship for free. Target has $4 prescriptions as well, with the added bonus of free flavoring on liquid medications. Perhaps both sources of supply cross borders, but I would feel more comfortable purchasing locally. The choice has to remain with you. Speak with your physician for his or her guidance. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “Consumer Tips on Medicines.” Other readers who would like a copy should


Dear Dr. Gott: I saw a written advertisement from BTM (Better Than Medicine) that sells medications at far lower prices than I can currently buy them. They state I can save up to 85 percent on my prescriptions, the program is free, there are no deductibles or restrictions on who can join, and the program can be used along with Medicare at no cost to me. What’s your opinion? It kind of DR. PETER sounds too good to be GOTT true.
