Barber resigns from school system

Commissioner quits amid allegations of being intoxicated in class BY SCOTT JENKINS AND K ARISSA M INN

news@salisburypost.com

JON BARBER

Rowan County Commissioner Jon Barber has resigned from his job as a teacher with the Rowan-Salisbury School System amid allegations he was drunk in a classroom full of students. Barber was removed from his Southeast Middle School classroom Wednesday morning because of suspicion that he was intoxicated, multiple sources told the Post.

He resigned Thursday, citing personal reasons, school system spokeswoman Rita Foil said. In a telephone interview Thursday, Barber, 50, refused to respond to the allegations. He said that he is leaving the school system for “other opportunities.” “I just left early yesterday and told them I was pursuing other opportunities,” Barber said. “There’s nothing else for me to say.” He said he would like to be doing something related to agriculture. Barber’s family owns a farm in Mount Ulla.

When asked if he planned to remain on the Rowan County Board of Commissioners, Barber said, “Absolutely. Without a doubt.” According to the sources, Barber’s principal removed him from the sixthgrade social studies classroom as students were preparing to take their endof-grade tests. Dr. Jim Emerson, chairman of the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education, was informed of the incident late Wednesday and said he could not go into detail about it Thursday.

OPENING NIGHT AT THE NORVELL

“It’s still a personnel issue, and kind of a personal issue with Jon Barber,” Emerson said after Barber’s resignation. “It’s hard to find something positive out of the situation, but I’m sorry that it has occurred.” Emerson said that, as far as he knows, the incident did not affect endof-grade testing for Barber’s students or others at the school. And, as for Barber, Emerson said

ow the kids are in charge. They’re doing the lights, operating the sound board, playing in the orchestra, serving as ushers and lining up their families to work concessions and the box office. Oh, yeah, they’re putting on the shows, too, starting tonight at The Norvell, Salisbury’s new children’s theater on East MARK Fisher Street. WINEKA What once was the Friendly Cue pool hall is now Salisbury’s newest treasure — one that will pay enormous dividends for Piedmont Players, the entire arts community, the city and — most impor-

tant — the children throughout Rowan County. And those dividends will keep coming a long time after the planting of this tree. At Donor Appreciation Night, major contributors to the $3 million project enjoyed a private viewing Thursday of the theater’s premiere production, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” They sat in a comfortable 250-seat theater in front of an enormous stage — twice the size of the stage at the mother ship, the Meroney Theater. They walked on the gleaming varnished floor of the main, street-level lobby and brushed against the recently — and I stress, recently — painted walls. They traded war stories of the pool hall’s transformation and patted each other on the back for finding a way to make this

KANNAPOLIS — An assistant state superintendent for West Virginia was hired Thursday afternoon as the new superintendent of the Kannapolis City Schools. Dr. Pamela Cain will replace Dr. Jo Anne Byerly, who is retiring effective June 30. Cain will begin her four-year term effective July 1 and will spend some days working with Byerly between now and then. The Kannapolis City Board of Education voted unanimously at a special 5 p.m. meeting to hire Cain. She signed a contract for a four-year term before a large audience of school system staff and community KATHY CHAFFIN/SALISBURY POST and media represenDr. Pamela Cain tatives. School board member Charles Mitchell noted that Cain was using a pen from Milano, Italy, to sign the contract. “I went over there personally five years ago to get it,” he joked. School Board Chair Danita Rickard introduced Cain as the new superintendent after the board returned from meeting in closed session for about 15 minutes. “We are thrilled to be able to bring Dr. Cain to Kannapolis after an exhaustive search process,” she said. “We hope and believe we have found a worthy successor to Dr. Byerly, and we are confident Dr. Cain will do wonderful things here.” Addressing the board, Cain said, “Thank you so much for believing in me.” She assured the

Mother with two children in car charged with DWI A woman has been charged after authorities say she drove drunk and nearly collided with a deputy sheriff’s vehicle while her two small children rode in the back seat of her car. Ashley Ryan Molina, 26, 220 Patriot Circle, was charged with driving while impaired, no operator’s license, child restraint violation and misdemeanor child abuse. Capt. John Sifford of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said the incident occurred around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. Sgt. Jody Burleyson was on Rowan Mills Road when he met a 2009 Toyota coming head-on toward his patrol car in a no-passing zone. Burleyson pulled over to avoid a collision, then turned and stopped the Toyota. Burleyson said he smelled alcohol on the driver, Molina. She had two children, ages 3 and 4, in the back seat. They were not secured in child seats. Authorities contacted the children’s grandmother and she came to the scene to take the children.

Foreclosure expo provides info Davidson Program helps people in danger of losing their homes

BY SHAVONNE POTTS

spotts@salisburypost.com

Two years ago, Deborah Turnbull inherited a house from her mother who died and she’s been struggling to keep it ever since. Turnbull is in the process of home foreclosure. She has exhausted all avenues and turned to a Home Foreclosure Expo on Thursday at the F&M Trolley Barn. Nearly 50 attendees learned about alternatives such as repayment plans, loan modifications and pre-foreclosure sales. “I’m in a foreclosure situation with my bank,” she said. Her situation is like many across the state and nation who are also going through the foreclosure process. “I got behind because I was sick. When I went back to my job, it was closed,” she said. She had no problems paying the mortgage before she got sick. Turnbull said she’s at the point where her lenders are telling her they have foreclosure packages for her to sign. She’s been to local agencies and her lender, both saying she doesn’t qualify for certain programs. “I don’t want to lose my home,” Turnbull said. She remains unemployed and is raising her grandson. “I hear about all this government funding, but who is it for?” she asked. Thomas Warren heard about the Expo through a friend. “I want to see what’s out there to modify, or other programs,” he said. He said he’s not at the point of foreclosure but just wants to know what options he may have if, “push comes to shove, who do I contact?” W.D. Russell said she’s been making payments on her home, and her lender reduced the payments. But now the lender asked for back pay on the reduction. “I’m in a modification program. I want to see if there’s a better program,” she said. Kay Yang attended the Expo

The family’s home is in foreclosure. Chia saw a flyer about the event. He said he wants some other options in hopes of saving the family’s home, which they’ve been in for the past 13 years. “We’ve been dealing with it for a bit,” Kay said. “We hope there’s something more helpful.” Local Realtor Elia Gegorek attended the Expo for more education about the foreclosure process. “As a Realtor, I thought this would be a good information tool,” she said. She hasn’t had too many dealings with clients who’ve been in the foreclosure process, but she was able to help a client sell a home before foreclosure. “I want to know more about the process,” she said.

UNCC moves into N.C. Research Campus BY EMILY FORD

eford@salisburypost.com

KANNAPOLIS — The first university to join the N.C. Research Campus is the last public university to have a permanent home there. The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, which opened a business program in Kannapolis 2006 and a scientific program in 2007, finally moved into the campus centerpiece Core Laboratory Building and held a grand opening Thursday night. Dr. Cory Brouwer arrived

three weeks ago to direct UNCCharlotte’s scientific work in Kannapolis. “I never thought I’d find the combination of agriculture work and large pharma in one place,” he told a crowd gathered on the third floor of the Core Lab Building. “This is a fantastic opportunity to do that.” Brouwer, new director of Bioinformatics Services for UNC-Charlotte, received a doctorate in molecular biology at Iowa State University and then

An online retailer will add more than 200 jobs in Davidson County, Gov. Bev Perdue’s office announced Thursday. Vitacost.com Inc., also a direct marketer of health and wellness products, will expand its Lexington operation. The company plans to invest $6.7 million and create 228 jobs over the next three years. The project was made possible in part by a $450,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund, Perdue’s press release said. “Competition for jobs is fierce around the country and around the world,” Perdue said. “So it is particularly rewarding when a company recognizes our exceptional business climate and tremendous workforce by continuing to invest and grow in our state.” Vitacost.com, headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., operates a call center and a manufacturing and distribution facility in Lexington. In addition to selling brands such as New Chapter, Atkins, Twinlab and Kashi, the company makes and sells its own products including Nutraceutical Sciences Institute, Cosmeceutical Sciences Institute, Smart Basics and Best of All. The expansion at the Lexington Business Park will allow Vitacost to increase its manufacturing and distribution capabilities to meet growing demand, the press release said. The Lexington plant currently employs 168 people. While individual salaries will vary by job function, the average wage for the new jobs will be more than $30,000 a year plus benefits. The Davidson County average is $29,640. “We are pleased Vitacost has the opportunity to expand its operations in Davidson County, where we have been since 2008,” company CEO Ira Kerker said. “We appreciate the support of the state of North Carolina and the One North Carolina Fund. We look forward to working with our employees and the community to meet the demands of Vitacost’s growing healthy living and wellness customer base.” Others involved in the project include the N.C. Department of Commerce, N.C. Community Colleges, DavidsonWorks Workforce Development Board, Lexington, Davidson County and Davidson Progress. “During these tough economic times, it’s critical to make the right investments that will create jobs and needed investment in our state. This is good news for Davidson County,” said Rep. Hugh Holliman. The One North Carolina Fund provides financial assistance through local governments to attract business projects that will stimulate economic activity and create jobs. Companies receive no money up front and must meet job creation and investment targets to qualify for grant payments. The grants require local matches.

UNC-Charlotte has moved two programs at the N.C. Research Campus into the Core Lab Building.

Troopers involved in chase Seven troopers with the N.C. Highway Patrol were involved in a single-vehicle chase Thursday afternoon, shortly after 3:15 p.m. According to scanner traffic, the chase occurred off of Airport and Gaskey roads. Onlookers reported speeds in excess of 80 mph. No further information was available.

Robbery suspect caught The suspect in an armed robbery of a local convenience store has been arrested in Yadkin County. Lamont Dewayne Dewalt, 18, 445 Memory Lane, Salisbury, was taken into custody by Yadkin County Sheriff’s deputies Wednesday morning after a short foot chase. Dewalt is in the Yadkin County Detention Center with bond set at $20,000. Lt. Chad Moose of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said Dewalt is also a suspect in several robberies in Yadkin County.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office issued warrants for Dewalt on May 15, charging him with robbery with a dangerous weapon. The charge stems from the April 23 armed robbery at Village Grocery at N.C. 601 and East Ridge Road. The robber pulled a small handgun and demanded money, telling the clerk if anybody came outside he would kill them.

Dakota Street in Kannapolis reopens KANNAPOLIS — Dakota Street between Kansas Street and Suburban Avenue has reopened to traffic. The street has been closed since 2008 due to damage from Tropical Storm Faye, when a culvert washed out. The major east-west connector between Ridge Avenue and Cannon Boulevard reopened earlier this week, City Manager Mike Legg said. Because the street was washed out as the result of a natural disaster, the city will be reimbursed by the state for repairs, Legg said. The project cost about $800,000, he said.

A 13-year-old boy who was missing for a couple of days is back home. A tip Wednesday led authorities to 13-yearold Francisco Perez Navarro, who was staying in a van behind a Hispanic store in the China Grove area. Capt. John Sifford of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said the boy was returned home safe but hungry. On Monday, the Sheriff’s Office had issued an appeal for help from the public in locating the boy. He was last seen at Southeast Middle School at 6:30 a.m. Monday morning. Navarro’s family apparently believed he had been attending school regularly. But officials said the boy hadn’t attended school in the past three weeks.

Text messages spur school bus attack An exchange of text messages on a school bus apparently triggered an attack on a 17-year-old West Rowan High School student. The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office has filed a juvenile petition against a 15-year-old boy for assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a weapon on school grounds. Capt. John Sifford said the 17-year-old girl had received several text messages from someone she didn’t know. While on the school bus Monday afternoon, she replied to the messages, asking the sender to stop. Sifford said shortly thereafter, the 15-year-old came up behind her on the bus, slammed her head against the window and put a knife against her throat. Several people witnessed the incident but apparently didn’t see the knife concealed in the boy’s hand, Sifford said. The female student reported the incident to school officials, who contacted the Sheriff’s Office. Sifford said school officials immediately suspended the boy for 10 days and are considering a suspension for the remainder of the school year.

Those in attendance had the opportunity to speak one-on-one with representatives from the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency, Legal Aid North Carolina, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the North Carolina Housing Coalition and the state Commissioner of Banks. Those agencies were also general sponsors of the event along with Miller Davis, Fidelity Bank and the United Way of Rowan County. Steve Fisher, president of F&M Bank, told the audience that if someone other than a lender says to a homeowner they must pay to get out of foreclosure then it is a scam. “All of these are free services here tonight,” he said. Regina Greene, of the North Carolina Housing Coalition, provided information about how to report a scam.

“The real answer is inside these four walls with all of these agencies in this room,” Greene said. “You have people here to support you,” said Cynthia DuRant with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). She spoke about the Making Home Affordable Program, which provides temporary mortgage assistance to some unemployed homeowners. She also mentioned new laws and opportunities for homeowners that will begin in June. The new regulation will work so that once a homeowner asks for a loan modification, any foreclosure actions must be halted. In the past, lenders pursued foreclosures at the same time they were working with homeowners to make their loan payments more manageable. The presenting sponsors for the event were Salisbury Community Development Corp., F&M Bank, Quick Copy Shop, Food Lion, Salisbury Post and the city of Salisbury.

Tax issue with new mental health chief examined RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s health department is taking a second look at the hiring of a longtime advocate for the mentally ill because the previous organization he led is behind on federal payroll taxes. The Department of Health and Human Services said Thursday the agency is collecting more information about federal tax liens placed on the Mental Health Association in North Carolina,

which was run by John Tote until recently. Tote was named this week the next state mental health director. Records at the North Carolina Secretary of State’s office show federal liens of nearly $1.5 million since 2006. Tote and the association’s interim leader didn’t return calls seeking comment. Tote is supposed to report to work Monday, but it’s unclear whether that will happen.

Ways to cut back With the economy recovering slowing but steadily — but mostly slowly— many are still trying to figure out ways to tighten their belts a bit more. Tracking your expense to figure out your budget is the most obvious first step. The next is to identify and elimiTOI nate extras. DEGREE Use this list to identify the extras in your budget; then, decide which are worth keeping and which are just keeping you at work. Cable/ Satellite • Could you do away with cable or satellite entirely? • Scale back to the basic channels? • Switch from digital cable to regular cable? • Do you need a set-top box or hook up in every room? Phone Plans • Do you need caller ID and call waiting? • What about voice mail? • Do you need a landline and a cell phone? • Could you switch to a cheaper cell plan? • Get rid of text messaging or other features? Eating Out • Could you eat at home more often? • Pack your lunch, instead of buying? • Bring your coffee from home? • Pack snacks when you know you’ll be away from home for an extended period? • Bring drinks and snacks to work, instead of relying on the vending machines? Clothing • Could you set a clothing allowance or lower your existing allowance? • Shop second-hand? • Repair clothes, instead of replacing them? • Skip dry cleaning? Subscriptions and Memberships • Are there seldom read magazines that you could cancel? • Is your mail movie rental subscription a must? • Do you have a gym membership that you aren’t utilizing? • Could you cancel your membership to clubs that you no longer have time for? Entertainment • Could you rent movies instead of watching them at the theatre? • Go to matinees? • Go to free concerts and events, instead of paid events? • Borrow books and movies from the library, instead of buying them? • Listen to the radio instead of buying CDs or songs? • Find a cheaper hobby? • Scale back your vacations? Services • Could you cancel your lawn service? • Change your own oil? • Have your hair cut less often? • Do your own manicures and pedicures? • Skip the massage? The list above outlines many of the extras that can sabotage newly established budgets, yet with cutbacks there are relatively quick cost savings. However, the biggest savings often lie in the areas where you spend the most money: housing, transportation, food, insurance and health care. For more information on budgeting contact Toi N. Degree, Family and Consumer Education Agent, Rowan County Cooperative Extension Service 704-216-8970 or e-mail: toi_degree@ncsu.edu.

Officials vote to speed construction at N.C. airport MORRISVILLE (AP) — Officials at a North Carolina airport have voted to accelerate construction at one of its terminals so it can be open in time for the NHL All-Star Game. The Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority voted on Thursday to speed up construction of the second phase of Terminal 2 so it can be in operation for the all-star festivities, including the game on Jan. 30, 2011. The authority for RaleighDurham International Airport is working with Archer Western Contractors, Ltd. to open Terminal 2 on Jan. 23, 2011. The authority will incur some costs which will be reflected in a change to the construction contract. Once the building is turned over to the authority, RDU employees, tenants and other sub-contractors will complete the additional work needed to open and operate the terminal.

Agency examining mental health privatization RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s top health official is considering whether to outsource care of dozens of institutionalized mental patients to a private contractor. Health and Human Services Secretary Lanier Cansler says he’s looking at privatizing oversight of about 80 mental patients at Dorothea Dix Hospital. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday the patients are accused of crimes and are either awaiting trial or have been found not guilty by reason of insanity. Cansler says he doesn’t favor privatizing all mental health care but says the agency must keep looking for ways to save money during tight budget times. A spokeswoman for Gov. Beverly Perdue says the governor is open to the idea. Legislators who oversee mental health services say they are suspicious about privatization efforts.

people in the audience that board members had put her through a rigorous interview process and asked many difficult questions. Cain thanked Byerly for doing such a wonderful job during her time as superintendent and said she looked forward to continuing her fine work. Addressing the audience, she said, “I’m just thankful to be with you.” The new superintendent’s husband, architect Kent Gandee, was at the meeting along with Lucas, one of their two sons, who lives in Charlotte. Their other son, Brandon, lives in Richmond, Va. Cain said she is excited about being a part of Kannapolis. “I desire to be part of the community,” she said, “and I especially desire to see the faces of children.” Reading from a press release, Rickard said Cain has more than 20 years experience in education, serving at state, county and school levels. She has been an assistant state superintendent in West Virginia for the past 10 years.

described her as “the embodiment of professionalism” and wholeheartedly endorsed her as a superintendent of schools. “In fact,” Rickard said, “he said she can do anything she wants to.” The Kannapolis Board of Education asked the N.C. School Board Association to handle the application process, according to Ellen Boyd, director of community relations for the school system. After Byerly announced her pending retirement in November, Boyd said board members set the middle of May as their target date for hiring a new superintendent. “I think May 20 is pretty close,” she said. Before starting the interview process, the board conducted a survey of staff, students, parents and the community to see what qualities they wanted in a new superintendent. A total of 21 applications were received for the job,

Under her leadership, a task force was organized to address curriculum weaknesses in mathematics, resulting in Wirt County receiving the most improved scores in West Virginia on its state achievement tests. Cain also has extensive experience in strategic planning at the state level. As chairperson for the State Parent Advisory Council, she facilitated the development of a threeyear strategic plan for parent, family and community engagement in low performing schools. Additionally, Cain served as supervisor for the Office of Healthy Schools and oversaw strategic planning for health and wellness in schools in partnership with the Department of Human Services and Bureau of Public Health. She has also focused on improving academic achievement for students living in or awaiting foster care and students in residential facilities and shelters by chairing the “Out of Home Care Task Force” for the state of West Virginia.

Michaels’ neurosurgeon said that while the Poison frontman has a “fantastic attitude” about making a full recovery, “Bret’s brain and body are not quite 100 percent yet, especially with the hole found in his heart.” Additional tests were being conducted to determine the best course of treatment. Doctors said Michaels is currently being treated with a daily injection of a blood thinner to reduce the risk of clots. His website said Michaels was “up, walking, talking, continuing his daily rehab and very happy to be alive.” “He has made it clear he is sick and tired of being in the hospital and is ready to rock again,” the site says. Michaels was expected to appear at Sunday’s finale of Donald Trump’s “The Celebrity Apprentice.” NBC said ot is “cautiously optimistic” he can attend.

Michaels’ publicist, Joann Mignano, confirmed the report. Michaels was hospitalized after experiencing numbness on the left side of his body, particularly in his face and hands.

whether charges could be filed against Barber. He passed those questions on to Rowan County Sheriff Kevin Auten. Auten said he had consulted with District Attorney Bill Kenerly and “he’s going to research it overnight ... and go from there.” He added, though, the Sheriff’s Office wasn’t called to Southeast Middle and “I’ve never heard of drunk and disruptive after the fact.” If any investigation is to be undertaken, Auten said, it might be handed over to the State Bureau of Investigation due to the working relationship between county commissioners and the Sheriff’s Office. Barber is serving his first term as a county commissioner. He got the most votes in the recent Republican primary for this year’s county board elections.

They told Ford the principal had removed Barber from the classroom because he appeared to be intoxicated. The parents who called Ford said their children sent them text messages describing the situation. “We will pray for Jon and hope for the best for him,” Ford said. “Hopefully, no one was put in harm’s way — I don’t think they were. We will be praying for Jon, that’s for sure.” Ford said Thursday afternoon he hadn’t talked with Barber and didn’t know whether the board of commissioners would take a position on the incident.

ors flying through the air.” Harkey knew the cyclist who was wearing orange and black, his team’s colors, was either his wife, Lori Harkey, or her twin sister, Lisa Preslar. “Those two girls,” he said, “that’s all I could think of.” Two months earlier, Harkey had delivered a eulogy at the funeral of Adam Little, his teammate and friend struck and killed on St. Patrick’s Day in Concord while riding his bike to work in Charlotte. As Harkey approached the scene at 7:20 p.m. Wednesday, he was afraid someone else he loved had died. “I was concerned that I was going to ride up there and find that someone had been killed,” he said. No one died in the collision. “It was a mess,” said Lee Wonnacott, who lives on St. Stephen’s Church Road. He asked his wife to call 911 after they heard screaming in front of their house. Bikes and bodies were strewn across his yard, Wonnacott said. The N.C. Highway Patrol charged Daniel Burton Wilson II, 21, of 325 Sand Road in Rockwell, with six counts of felony hit and run. Authorities say Wilson turned into the cyclists and struck six, dragging one underneath his Nissan Pathfinder. Wilson fled the scene but turned himself in at the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday night, Sgt. G.A. Barger said. A magistrate released Wilson on a written promise to appear in court Tuesday. He could face additional charges, Barger said. The Cabarrus County District Attorney’s Office is determining “if this guy was trying to intentionally run over the cyclists,” Barger said. The cyclist who Harkey saw flying through the air was his wife. She sustained a concussion and blows to the chest and abdomen. She was transferred to Carolinas Medical CenterNortheast in Concord, along with Tim Sigmon of Concord, Jack King of Mount Pleasant and Nathan Gray of Concord, an assistant principal at Mount Pleasant Elementary School. Nick Fishbein of Mooresville and Richard Hancock of Oakboro, who Chris Harkey said was the cyclist caught under the vehicle, were treated at the scene. Steve Merithew, a volunteer firefighter with the Gold Hill department, arrived soon after the collision. He lives a few houses away from the scene of the accident and said he helped assess and stabilize the victims. He was most concerned about victims going into shock, Merithew said, but no

Cyclists await rescue crews shortly after Wednesday’s accident. one did. Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office and EMS and the N.C. Highway Patrol responded as well. Wilson was driving north on St. Stephens Church Road just south of the Rowan County line between Kluttz and Sansbury roads, according to the Highway Patrol. The cyclists were traveling south, going downhill at about 30 mph, Harkey said. “For whatever reason, we don’t know why, he went left of center and hit the leaders of the group,” Barger said. “We don’t know if he was turning or what.” One cyclist went over the hood of the Pathfinder, one went under the car and several crashed into the vehicle, Barger said. “He stopped and drove off again with one rider under his car,” he said. Cyclists attempted to stop the car, and Wilson drove around them in the ditch, dislodging the cyclist from under the vehicle, Barger said. Chris Harkey said Hancock jumped out from under the vehicle and was not run over, but his bicycle was. Before the vehicle sped away, cyclists recorded the tag number, Harkey said. “What I could see was the vehicle starting to move,” he said. “I stopped in the road, used my bike to block the road and got my hands out, and he comes at me and swerves around me.” A motorist who saw the collision followed Wilson’s car and recorded the tag number as well. Authorities tracked the number to Wilson’s father, also named Daniel Wilson, of Stanley in Gaston County. The father confirmed that his son drives the

Pathfinder and gave authorities his exwife’s phone number to help track down his son, Barger said. Wilson’s mother, Cathy Sienerth of Concord, cooperated with authorities, Barger said. She and Wilson arrived at the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office, where Wilson turned himself in at 11:30 p.m. Authorities had no reason to think Wilson was impaired when he was arrested, about four hours after the collision, Barger said. Two victims, Sigmon and Gray, remain in the hospital. Sigmon suffered a deep laceration on his leg and internal injuries, Chris Harkey said. He has undergone one surgery and will have another. Gray will spend one more night in the hospital, Harkey said. King, who broke his collar bone, was released but will require surgery, he said. The group has enjoyed the Wednesday training ride for 15 years, Harkey said. The cyclists who were hit were riding single file on the white line, he said. But drivers are often impatient when they encounter cyclists on the road. “Please, just give us 10 seconds,” said Harkey, who was hit by a car in 1997. “There could have been some more deaths, very easily.” Six of the 18 cyclists Wednesday evening were from the Subaru-Gary Fisher team. After Adam Little’s death, another teammate was struck by a car in Huntersville and a third was seriously injured during a race in Boone, Harkey said. “There’s been a dark cloud over us since Adam,” he said.

gency Management Division. “Minor impact as we have heard it explained is there could be an occasional 6-inch tar ball that one could clean off one’s feet with soap.” “Is it a possibility? Yes. Is it likely? No. That’s what we’re hearing,” said Thom Berry, a spokesman for the state Department of Health and Environmental Control. There are a couple of things working in favor of the Carolinas. Much of the oil would be diluted in the weeks it could take to be pushed out of the Gulf. And the Gulf Stream would keep most of it off shore, 60 to 100 miles at sea, Berry said. If the oil did wash ashore, it would come at the busiest time for tourism along the Carolinas coast. The Coast Guard would take the lead in coordinating any clean up needed along the beaches. On Monday, Coast Guard officials will be in Columbia for a table-top planning exercise just in case. “We’re working to stay ahead of it,” Seneca said.

RALEIGH (AP) — House budget writers on Thursday started considering the Senate’s $19 billion budget plan, singling out some differences and announcing they would aim to cut an additional $200 million from public education. The Senate earlier in the day voted 30-16 to approve its version of the spending plan to run state government for the year starting July 1. House budget subcommittees got their marching orders from their superiors on the full appropriations panel on how much to cut and complete their work by the end of next week. The House wants to approve its full budget plan by June 4 — giving the two chambers about three weeks to work out a compromise to present to Gov. Beverly Perdue before July 1. Rep. Phil Haire, D-Jackson, a co-chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, said he believed the final negotiations will be easier based on what he’s seen in the Senate plan and what the House intends to roll out. “It’s much better than what we saw last year, so I think there’ll be less areas of discussion,” Haire said. “I think our priorities are really jobs and education.” But the House’s educa-

tion subcommittee was told to make spending reductions that are twice as deep than those in the Senate plan — $360 million in net cuts, or 3.3 percent, versus $159 million in the Senate’s budget plan. Rep. Rick Glazier, DCumberland, an education subcommittee co-chairman, said he believes the top budget writers are seeking more balance in proposed cuts across state government. Budget writers in the House health and human services subcommittee were told they didn’t have to cut any deeper, keeping to the steep 9 percent reduction that the Senate budget took in that department. “My sense is the House leadership may feel those cuts are a little deeper than they would have liked,”

Glazier said. It wasn’t immediately clear where the additional education cuts would originate, but House Democrats already have made plain they’ll restore dropout prevention grants, setting up a clear difference during negotiations. The Senate budget took away $13 million and discontinued the program — a favorite of Speaker Joe Hackney and other House members. “This is the Senate’s bargaining chip,” said Rep. Ray Rapp, D-Madison, co-chairman of education subcommittee. Hackney spokesman Bill Holmes said spending targets for prisons, probation and the courts were slightly less than the Senate budget approved. “It’s early on in the process,” Holmes

said. House tax-law writers are likely to examine carefully a Senate provision that would reduce the highest marginal income tax rate for small and family owned businesses from 7.75 percent to 6.9 percent. Senate leaders said the effort, which would reduce tax revenues by almost $40 million next year, was a small step in leveling the tax burden between mom-and-pop business and corporations. The House is considering proposals that reward small businesses that create jobs. “We’re concerned about job creation for small businesses,” said Rep. Paul Luebke, D-Durham, senior cochairman of the House Finance Committee. “The Senate’s proposal is not linked to job creation.”

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Chances are remote that oil from a leaking well in the Gulf of Mexico could make it to the beaches of the Carolinas and it would likely be weeks from now if it did, emergency officials said Thursday. “We think there will be a minimal impact, if any,” said Ricky Platt, director of the South Carolina Emergency Management Division. “But having said that, we’re still in the unknown.” The worry is that the loop current in Gulf of Mexico will pull the leaking oil around the Florida peninsula and then north toward the Carolinas. “What we’re hearing from the Coast Guard is that there is less than a 1 percent chance it could get this far,” said Eddie Seneca, the spokesman for the North Carolina Department of Crime Control and Public Safety. On Wednesday, Clinch Heyward and Ben Gregg, chairman and executive director respectively of the South Carolina Wildlife Federation, wrote the Coast Guard and the state Department of Health and Environmental Control asking about contingency plans if oil does tar the shoreline. “No one can say with any certainty if this will happen or what the potential impacts on our region might be,” the letter said. “But since as of this date the oil continues to flow into the Gulf, and we are told it may be several months before it is shut off, the possibility of its getting to our shores is becoming more and more likely.” Both states have plans in place to deal with oil spills and officials in each state are in daily contact with their counterparts in the Gulf. “If it does come here they think it will have a minor impact on our beaches,” said Joe Farmer, a spokesman for the South Carolina Emer-

Lawmakers close to tightening reins on Wall Street

WASHINGTON (AP) — Dennis Blair, President Obama’s national intelligence director, is resigning after a 16-month tenure marked by turf wars among the spy agencies. Blair, a retired admiral, is the third director of national intelligence, a position created in response to the failure to prevent the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Blair intends to offer his resignation today, one of the two officials said, adding that several candidates have been interviewed for the job. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not yet been made. His oversight of the nation’s 16 intelligence agencies was marked by turf battles with the CIA director and controversial public comments in the wake of the abortive Christmas Day jetliner bombing. CIA Director Leon Panetta and Blair squared off in May over Blair’s effort to choose a personal representative at U.S. embassies to be his eyes and ears abroad, instead of relying on CIA station chiefs, as had been past practice.

Calderon says immigration reform critical to a secure Mexico border WASHINGTON (AP) — Mexican President Felipe Calderon took his opposition to a new Arizona immigration law to Congress, saying it “ignores a reality that cannot be erased by decree.” Calderon’s comments on the Arizona law and his request that Congress do something about the availability of high-powered weapons along the border drew criticism from several lawmakers saying he was interfering in U.S. internal matters. The Mexican leader also told lawmakers reluctant to take up the immigration issue this year that comprehensive immigration reform is crucial to securing the two countries’ common border. Calderon, the first foreign national leader to address Congress this year, said he strongly disagrees with the Arizona law that requires police to question people about their immigration status if there’s reason to suspect they are in the country illegally. “It is a law that not only ignores a reality that cannot be erased by decree but also introduces a terrible idea using racial profiling as a basis for law enforcement,” he said to cheers, mainly from the Democratic side of the chamber.

Broken alarm helps thieves snag $123 million in Paris museum art PARIS (AP) — A broken alarm system made it as easy as 1-2-3: A masked intruder clipped a padlock, smashed a window and stole a Picasso, a Matisse and three other masterpieces from a Paris museum — a $123 million haul that is one of the biggest art heists ever. Offloading the artwork may prove a tougher task, however, with Interpol and collectors worldwide now on high alert. The alarm system had been broken since March in parts of the Paris Museum of Modern Art, according to the city’s mayor, Bertrand Delanoe. The museum reopened in 2006 after spending $18 million and two years upgrading its security system. A lone masked intruder entered the museum about 3:50 a.m., his movements caught on one of the museum’s functioning cameras, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office.

Scientists make synthetic cell using manmade DNA WASHINGTON (AP) — Scientists announced a bold step in the enduring quest to create artificial life. They’ve produced a living cell powered by manmade DNA. While such work can invoke images of Frankenstein-like scientific tinkering, it also is exciting hopes that it could eventually lead to new fuels, better ways to clean polluted water, faster vaccine production and more. The inventors call it the world’s first synthetic cell, although this initial step is more a re-creation of existing life — changing one simple type of bacterium into another — than a built-from-scratch kind. Maryland genome-mapping pioneer J. Craig Venter said his team’s project paves the way for designing organisms that work differently from the way nature intended them. Already he’s working with ExxonMobil in hopes of turning algae into fuel.

Rand Paul’s comments stir up controversy focusing on race WASHINGTON (AP) — A tea party conservative on a national stage, Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul of Kentucky labored to explain remarks suggesting businesses be allowed to deny service to blacks without fear of federal interference, declaring, “I abhor racial discrimination.” In a written statement, Paul said, “I believe we should work to end all racism in American society and staunchly defend the inherent rights of every person.” But he did not repudiate controversial comments about the 1964 Civil Rights Act that he made in a newspaper interview last month and then elaborated on during broadcast appearances Wednesday. The issue arose little more than 24 hours after the political novice swept to a landslide Republican primary victory.

BP spokesman Mark Proegler told the Associated Press that the mile-long tube inserted into the leaking well pipe over the weekend is capturing 210,000 gallons of oil a day — the total amount the company and the Coast Guard had estimated was gushing into the sea — but that some is still escaping. He did not say how much. The Environmental Protection Agency also directed BP to employ a less toxic form of the chemical dispersants it has been using. BP is marshaling equipment for an attempt to pump heavy mud into the top of the blown-out well to try to plug the gusher. It has been used before above ground, but like other methods BP is exploring, it has never been attempted 5,000 feet underwater.

ment of BP’s inattention to the scope and size of the greatest environmental catastrophe in the history of the United States,” said Rep. Edward J. Markey, D-Mass. At least 6 million gallons have gushed into the Gulf — more than half the amount the Exxon Valdez tanker spilled in Alaska in 1989 — since the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform exploded 50 miles off the coast April 20. Eleven workers were killed. The slow-motion disaster could become far wider. Government scientists said a small portion of the slick had entered the so-called loop current, a stream of fast-moving water that could carry the mess into the Florida Keys and up the state’s Atlantic Coast, damaging coral reefs and fouling beaches.

A formal hearing will be held later to determine if the star is in compliance with the court’s conditions. No court date has been set. Lohan has been on probation since August 2007 after pleading guilty to misdemeanor drug charges and no contest to three driving charges. The plea came after a pair of high-profile arrests earlier that year. Lohan has struggled repeatedly with the terms of her sentence. In October, a judge extended her probation for another year, and a prosecutor warned the actress she faced jail time if she violated her probation.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — A judge issued a warrant Thursday for Lindsay Lohan’s arrest after the actress missed a mandatory court hearing, but a court spokesman said the warrant was recalled hours later after her bond was posted. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel issued the warrant after the 23-year-old actress missed a progress report on her probation stemming from two arrests in 2007. A $100,000 bond was ordered as the judge sought to make sure Lohan shows up for her next court date. Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini confirmed that the warrant was recalled. Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, said Lohan’s passport was stolen while attending the Cannes Film Festival in France and she was unable to return to Los Angeles in time for the hearing. She was photographed partying on a yacht in the French Riviera until the wee hours, said celebrity photographer Phil Ramey, who posted the photos on his website. Revel said the star had a history of missing scheduled appointments. “If she wanted to be here, it looks to the court that she could have been here,” Revel said. The judge then revoked Lohan’s probation, issued the

GRAND ISLE, La. (AP) — The spectacle many had feared for a month finally began unfolding as gooey, rust-colored oil washed into the marshes at the mouth of the Mississippi for the first time, stoking public anger and frustration with both BP and the government. The sense of gloom deepened as BP conceded what some scientists have been saying for weeks: the oil leak at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico is bigger than the company previously estimated. Up to now, only tar balls and a sheen of oil had come ashore. But now, chocolate brown and vivid orange globs, sheets and ribbons of foul-smelling oil the consistency of latex paint has begun coating the reeds and grasses of Louisiana’s wetlands, home to rare birds, mammals and a rich variety of marine life. There were no immediate reports of any mass dieoffs of wildlife or large numbers of creatures wriggling in oil, as seen after the Exxon Valdez disaster, but that was the fear. Billy Nungesser, president of Louisiana’s Plaquemines Parish, toured the oilfouled marshes and said: “Had you fallen off that boat yesterday and come up breathing that stuff, you probably wouldn’t be here.” A live video feed of the underwater gusher, posted online Thursday after lawmakers exerted pressure on BP, is sure to fuel the anger. It shows what appears to be a large plume of oil and gas still spewing into the water next to the stopperand-tube combination that BP inserted to carry some of the crude to the surface. The House committee website where the video was posted promptly crashed because so many people were trying to view it. “These videos stand as a scalding, blistering indict-

WASHINGTON (AP) — Barely breaking a logjam, the Senate voted Thursday to end debate on a massive financial regulation bill, clearing the way for final passage of the most ambitious effort to write rules for Wall Street since the Great Depression. The vote was 60-40 to advance the legislation, which has become a top priority for President Barack Obama in the aftermath of his successful health care overhaul in March. The president heralded Thursday’s vote, saying Wall Street efforts to undermine the legislation had failed. “Our goal is not to punish the banks,” he said, “but to protect the larger economy and the American people from the kind of upheavals that we’ve seen in the past few years. Today’s action was a major step forward in achieving that goal.” The bill calls for new ways to watch for risks in the financial system and makes it easier to liquidate large failing financial firms. It also writes new rules for complex securities blamed for helping precipitate the 2008 economic crisis, and it creates a new consumer protection agency.

Hydrangeas begin blooming H

ydrangeas are just beginning to add color to landscapes throughout the county. These shrubs have always been a favorite and are now becoming more popular with the newer hybrids. At last count, there were more than 100 different varieties, including vine types, dwarf container DARRELL type plants, BLACKWELDER oak leafed varieties, redstemmed hydrangeas and hydrangeas with pure white blooms. There are literally hundreds of cultivars, but hydrangeas are usually placed in three basic categories: • Hydrangea macrophylla, also called bigleaf, mop head or French hydrangea; • Oakleaf hydrangea, Hydrangea quercifolia; • Peegee hydrangea, Hydrangea paniculata. The most popular hydrangea in Rowan County is the bigleaf hydrangea, Hydrangea macrophylla. This is an older cultivar usually pink or blue, depending on soil pH. Soil pH affects

summer, paniculata blooms develop a pink shade as the blooms age, extending their beauty into the fall. A desirable trait of all paniculatas is their tolerance for pruning. One can prune them at any time except when they begin forming bloom heads in the summer. Paniculatas often get very large, but the best known Hydrangea paniculata is PeeGee. This hydrangea gets its nickname from its botanical name, H. paniculata Grandiflora. There is a wealth of information including beautiful

Unsightly rust plagues apples and cedar BY DARRELL BLACKWELDER

he weather now dominates most conversations throughout the county. Rainy, cold, hot and muggy, all the extremes seemingly occurring within the same week. Plants are hardy and luckily adapt sometimes better than man, but these extremes do cause problems, mostly with insects and fungal diseases. The most interesting disease exacerbated by the weather over the past few weeks is cedar apple rust. It’s a disease that is reported by many people on cedar trees throughout the county. The disease is easily recognized by the orange, spaghetti-like growths on eastern red cedar trees. About the size of a golf ball or larger, these slimy balls, harbingers of a fungal disease on apples, coat many of the evergreens locally. The balls have been rather gooey and stringy over the past few days be-

Some trees may have just a few, one or two balls, while other trees may have dozens of the orange masses. Red cedars trees are alternate hosts for the fungal disease which causes rust on apples; however, it is the same disease. The fungal disease must have both red

cedars and apple trees in the same vicinity to complete the diseases’ life cycle. Without both trees, the disease would not exist. Cedar apple rust on apples and crabapple trees are very common. Soon after the trees leaf out, yellow-orange spots will appear on the apple tree leaves. Extreme infections may cause

Cedar apple rust leaves spots on an apple tree. complete defoliation. The fungal disease also affects the fruit, but is not devastating. One method of disease control would be to eliminate one of the hosts, all the red cedar trees within a half mile of the orchard. Apple producing counties in the mountains will do this as

one approach to controlling the disease. Obviously for a home orchardist with a few apple trees, it’s an impractical application. Another solution is to apply fungicides from early in the spring before bloom. At this point, it’s too late to apply fungicides to control the disease. Many cultivars are very susceptible to the disease. Rome Beauty, Gala, Mutsu (Crispin) and Jonagold are most susceptible to cedar apple rust in our area. Yellow Delicious is an apple variety not susceptible to cedar apple rust. Most trees contracting the aliment survive. The tree leaves will be unsightly and the fruit not as sweet as normal.

Whether it’s a simple arrangement that will grace your dining table yearround or a more elaborate display for a special dinner party, creating a memorable centerpiece is fun and easy. I asked Nell Hill’s visual team members Becky and Marsee to show us how. Before I even start on the centerpiece, I always set the table first so I know exactly how much space I have left over for the centerpiece. In the past, I used to create the centerpiece first, but on more than a few occasions, I got so carried away there was no room left on the table for the plates. I’ve learned my lesson, and now I get the essentials in place first. Then, every inch left over is fair game! Becky and Marsee went with a decidedly summer look for the table. Instead of using a heavy tablecloth, they let the cool, clear tabletop show through. In the summer I also like to use about a yard and a half of fabric, either hemmed or folded under and pressed, as a table topper. The visual team started each place setting on a simple wicker tray. Then they layered it up with the blueand-white Spode transferware I got at market for a steal. They added simple clear glass goblets and white linen napkins to round out the look. With this beautiful base, they’re ready to finish off the table with a wonderful centerpiece. The beauty of centerpieces is that they can be as simple or elaborate as you want, depending upon your time and tastes and the occasion. Today, we offer two treatments — one that’s stylish in its pure simplicity, the other a bit more elaborate and sophisticated. Start your streamlined centerpiece with an interesting container of some kind. Becky and Marsee chose an antique wooden dough bowl. I decorate a lot with wooden dough bowls because they add rustic texture to dining-table displays — I love them paired with fine china and silver. They are also incredibly versatile tools you can use over and again in seasonal decorating. They look wonderful filled with seasonal foliage, sitting at a table’s center, on a buffet, above an armoire or on a ledge. Instead of a wooden dough bowl, you could also use an English footbath, cachepot, basket or antique wooden box. Next, fill the container with something fun, interesting or colorful. Marsee is fitting our wooden dough bowl with several faux potted ferns. These little guys are one of my favorite accents to use in summer decorating. But you could also use moss balls, wicker balls, green apples, forced bulbs — you name it. If you want a fast and easy centerpiece that looks lovely, you’re done! This simple arrangement is perfect for a casual dinner party or as a standing display you can leave up year-round. To create a centerpiece that’s a bit more elegant and elaborate, start by picking out a few statement pieces that will serve as the base of your display. You’ll want pieces with some heft and intrigue. For our sample centerpiece, Marsee and Becky selected blue-and-white Asian ginger jars to complement the dishes in our place setting. These ginger jars are one of my go-to decorating tools right now because they are a steal (just $22 each!) and can be used in a million ways in your home. For our third statement piece, the team added a wonderful china jar.

Organizing your life for homeownership BY SARAH WELCH AND ALICIA ROCKMORE getbuttonedup.com

Congratulations! You’ve finally found the one. Tall, dark, handsome ... no, wait a minute. This one is more of the white-picket-fence-andfoyer variety — a house, and it’s yours! No more virtual tours, open houses and calls from your real-estate agent proclaiming “I’ve found it!” You have now joined the ranks of proud homeowners across the country. Pop the cork, cross the threshold and take a seat on your new couch. You might need a seat when the excitement wears off and you realize that this is (gulp) the biggest purchase you have ever made. But don’t panic yet. With a little preparation and guidance, you can navigate the world of the new homeowner with sanity and savings intact. Sarah on “It’s All About the Maintenance”: Owning your own home is a dream come true, but it’s easy for things to escalate into a financial and emotional nightmare if you don’t take care of them. The key to keeping your home running in top condition is by staying on top of things. Don’t wait to fix the leaky bathroom pipes, because you’ll regret it when your dining room is flooded. Little things can turn bad quickly, so fix it in the first place and you’ll save yourself some grief (and cash) down the road. Alicia on “Budgeting for the Inevitable”: You’ve already secured a mortgage, so kudos to you for being smart with your fi-

nances. While you are still in financial-planning mode, figure out what it costs to run the house and include everything, from your mortgage payment and insurance to heat, power and water bills. After you know what it takes to keep your house running, put away a little extra for those unforeseen costs. You won’t always need it, but when the air-conditioning unit breaks during a sweltering summer or the roof starts leaking, you’ll be glad you skipped the movies and contributed to your emergency fund.

Two ways to tackle maintenance mania

1. Show your home some love. Each quarter, schedule a few hours or an entire day to handle all of the little maintenance tasks that add up over time — things like swapping out the filters, cleaning the dryer lint vent and changing smoke- and carbonmonoxide-detector batteries. As you go around completing your checklist, make note of any large or small repairs that will need to be added to the list. 2. Let the seasons guide you. It’s hard to remember everything that needs to be done. But everyone has heard of spring cleaning, right? It’s really a great way to think about your home, since each season comes with a different set of needs. In the fall, leaves need to be raked and removed from gutters, while winter ushers in a season of indoor projects. Spring is a perfect time for planting, while summer months tend to involve outdoor projects like lawn

trimming and fertilizing.

Dear Mary: My husband and I paid off our home mortgage and bought a lake cabin. We have no outstanding debt. We share one major credit card and a store credit card. We never carry balances on those accounts. However, when we completed the paperwork to apply for a loan for the cabin, we were given a credit score of 813 out of a possible 950 with a note about outstanding balances on open accounts. We do NOT have any outstanding balances on loans or credit cards. MARY Can you help HUNT explain the meaning of this factor in our credit score? — R&B, e-mail Dear R&B: Your credit score is so great it’s ridiculous! I’m sure you qualified for the best rate your lender has to offer, so you can relax. As for that explanation you got for why your scores are not perfect, credit scoring doesn’t care that you pay your balances in full during the grace period each month.

wrote that, “Unemployment is very isolating” and said, “You should search for professional networking groups in your area.” I started a support and networking group for the unemployed after I was laid off last year. Both men and women attend, and many are over 50. Instead of seeing myself as a victim, I chose to turn my challenge into an opportunity, and I started The Unemployed Optimists. We share job search-related information, start our own businesses, go to school for retraining and share tips on how to have fun on a budget during our transition. I often get speakers who critique resumes, offer interview tips and teach how to use social media in their job search.

Being intimate with someone means you have to be brave enough to bare the unsettled, upsetting or disappointing aspects of your true feelings. You say, “I’ve learned this about you, and though it happened a long time ago, I’m devastated and need to talk about it.” You don’t have to end your relationship over this (though depending on how she reacts, you might choose to). Your relationship will be affected by this encounter, however. If you two weather this rough patch and manage to behave lovingly and respectfully through it and afterward, the intimacy you gain will bring you closer. Dear Amy: I was moved to respond to a letter from “Name Withheld” about surviving the choppy waters of unemployment. She wrote that, “Support groups for men who have lost their jobs abound, while those for women in the same situation are nonexistent.” In your response, you

that she actually wound up sleeping with her ex that night. I feel used and neglected all over again. I have absolutely no reason to believe she has ever been unfaithful since, and I truly believe she loves me. But, Amy, if I had found this out that day, or even shortly after, I would have ended the relationship. Now I am burdened with these confusing feelings of sadness and anger, and I am afraid it is going to affect our relationship. I know I have a right to be angry, but how can I rationalize ending a relationship, or even bringing this up, when it happened so long ago and things have been great since then? She doesn’t know I know. She is happy, and until I found out, I was happy, too. What should I do? — Keeping Up Appearances Dear Keeping Up: You might think that intimacy is defined by being in love, living with and sleeping together.

Dear Amy: Is there a statute of limitations on infidelity? Before I met my girlfriend, she was in a threeyear relationship with her previous boyfriend. About six months into our relationship, she broke a date with me because her ex-boyfriend contacted her, saying that he was leaving town for good and that he needed to see ASK her one last AMY time. She agreed, despite my opposition, and I went home alone that night as she went off to have coffee with him. I was rather upset. We talked about it at length, and she apologized for hurting me.

NEW PROBLEMS FOR BARBER

A sad turn of events W

hen County Commissioner Jon Barber was charged with driving while impaired two years ago, then-Commission Chairman Arnold Chamberlain asked if there was anything he could do to help. “Pray,” Barber said. Now, it appears more prayers are in order following the stunning news that Barber, a teacher at Southeast Middle School, was removed from his classroom Wednesday because of suspicions he was intoxicated and subsequently resigned from the school system. Prayers not only for Barber and his family but for the county’s governance. While his resignation from the school system ends speculation about the propriety of his continuing to teach young children, there’s no corresponding clarity regarding his position as a sitting commissioner and candidate for re-election. For now, at least, Barber has said he does not intend to step down from the board. Presumably, that means he also plans to remain as a candidate in November. That’s a questionable decision, both for Barber and the board. At this point, we don’t have all the facts about Wednesday’s episode. Barber, who has cited a diabetic condition as a factor in the 2008 incident, didn’t want to discuss the details with a reporter. School officials say it’s a personnel issue. And at this point, Barber faces no criminal charges, so there’s no police report to offer even a bare-bones narrative of what occurred. We’re left with student texts, second-hand accounts and a blizzard of rumors. If Barber were not a public official, the matter might end where it is, leaving him to deal with the issue amid the peace and privacy of family and friends. He would owe no further explanation, nor would the public be entitled to one. But Barber sought and attained an important elected office. He presented himself to voters as someone suitable for a position of leadership — someone who could be trusted to exercise sound judgment, act with integrity and uphold the public trust. Public officials aren’t simply citizens with an extra title and a few additional perks. They are citizens who have special responsibilities — and while no one expects them to be perfect, they are held to a standard that should extend beyond mere legality to a higher level of judgment, responsibility and self-control. If this episode had occurred before the primary, would Barber have been the top GOP vote-getter? We’ll never know, but it strains credulity to suggest it wouldn’t have changed some ballots. It’s always dangerous to leap to conclusions. Yet in this case, Barber’s abrupt resignation with minimal explanation, combined with his prior DWI conviction, casts a heavy cloud over his continued tenure in office. It doesn’t rise to the level of an offense that would trigger his removal, but it does raise serious questions about his ability to represent Rowan County and conduct the people’s business.

End offshore drilling? Need for fuel outweighs environmental risk BY AND

JOEL MATHIS BEN BOYCHUK

RedBlueAmerica.com

T

he devastation from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill widened this week, as the federal government put up to 19 percent of the gulf offlimits to fishing — and experts warned that the plume of oil could spread up the East Coast. The incident has prompted renewed debate about the safety and wisdom of oil production in environmentally sensitive areas. Should that production continue? Or is it time to shut down the oil rigs and fire up the solar panels? Joel Mathis and Ben Boychuk, the RedBlueAmerica columnists, have an energetic discussion.

It would be nice

JOEL MATHIS: It would be nice if we could unilaterally end offshore oil drilling. Nobody likes to see the oily bird carcasses washing up on beaches, nor the plaintive looks in the eyes of suddenly idled Louisiana fishermen. The widespread damage being done right now in the Gulf of Mexico should be intolerable. But we will tolerate it. We have to. America’s energy demands are simply too great to give it up — our politicians are not going to ask us to sacrifice our comfortable lifestyles; we won’t let them in any case — and the country isn’t anywhere close to ready to switch over to “alternative” energy sources like wind and solar to pick up the slack. If some environmentalists are ready to declare a moratorium without ready alternatives, however, drilling enthusiasts can be much too cavalier about the safety of offshore

drilling. Large-scale energy production of any sort is almost always a complicated and dangerous proposition, whether at Chernobyl or in the Atlantic Ocean. Disasters — the devastation of whole swaths of the planet — are inevitable. So regulations on drilling should be tight, and rigorously enforced. That hasn’t been the case. The New York Times reported that the federal government gave permission to dozens of oil companies — including BP — to drill offshore even though they hadn’t completed “required” environmental reviews. That’s inexcusable. We rely on oil energy because, for now, we have to. However, that’s no reason to let the oil companies essentially regulate themselves. Getting rigorous about the rules and their enforcement will probably make energy a little more expensive for all of us, but the cost will be necessary. Our own ability to survive on the planet depends upon it.

It would be foolish

BEN BOYCHUK: We make the policies, we pay the price. Why do oil companies drill in deep water, where the risks of a BP-like rupture are higher? Because shallow water is off-limits. A massive oil spill off the coast of Santa Barbara, California in 1969 led to a moratorium on new drilling near the U.S. coastline to avert similar disasters. In the minds of some legislators and policymakers, nothing has changed in more than 40 years. Why hasn’t the United States built a new commercial nuclear power plant in more than 30 years? Because in 1979, a partial meltdown at Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania led

LETTERS Confederacy of fools to blame for Obama This forwarded e-mail offers the most intelligent analysis yet! Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do. “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. “The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. “The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” — John Walls Salisbury

to the release of toxic radioactive gasses, and the evacuation of 140,000 people from nearby communities. Nobody died, but the response by the plant’s owners was halting and at times inept. As a result, the raft of new regulations and negative public opinion set the country’s nuclear power development back a generation. In the minds of some legislators and policymakers, nothing has changed in more than 30 years. Why hasn’t a “green economy” blossomed more quickly in the United States? Because even though the costs and risks of oil, coal and nuclear power may seem high, the costs and risks of wind, solar, geothermal and other renewable power sources are in many respects higher still. No, a wind turbine isn’t suddenly going to spew toxic gas. But for optimal output, we might need to build thousands of turbines and millions of miles of new transmission lines in environmentally sensitive, relatively pristine parts of the country. We could cover the landscape with solar panels and wind turbines, but we wouldn’t be able to meet our current power needs. Besides, only a very small percentage of the oil the United States imports goes toward generating electricity. Most of it goes into our gas tanks. To the extent we can find cleaner, more efficient alternatives, great. But we’re very much a petroleum-based economy, and we’ll remain so for a long time. As long as that’s true, we’ll need to keep drilling. • • • Ben Boychuk and Joel Mathis blog and podcast every week at www.freedompub.org and joelmathis.blogspot.com.

Mr. Sides that he was sorry that Mrs. Hall didn’t have more support and that Mr. Barber received the majority of the votes and now Mrs. Hall’s issue with Mr.Coltrain’s “Hatch Act” involvement. What is the issue with these two people? Do they actually think they are the only people that can run the county? Well they both are wrong! I thought as a county commissioner you actually worked for the people that voted you into office and did their wishes and not try to keep trouble stirred up in the county. I have not seen them do anything more outstanding than you or I could do if we had been elected. I know I wouldn’t keep trouble brewing constantly. Maybe that is politics and I am glad I have nothing to do with it in that respect. Mr. Sides, as a “true conservative” and the Christian candidate, how can you sleep at night? In that book that you read daily (Bible), as I do, doesn’t it state somewhere to hold you tongue, love one another and set your mind on things above? Maybe you need to read it more closely. Mrs. Hall, you placed third in the primary. Why hold a

runoff? I know! Fewer people will vote, and I can win! Hello! Your antics as commissioner have led me to believe you would do anything to get your way. I pray that you and Mr. Sides lose so we can have commissioners that care about Rowan County and not their own political careers. A vote for these two is a vote for the same problems we have had in the past and it will not stop until they both are running the show. — Mike Trexler Salisbury

True public servant I was on my way to Salisbury last Friday night when I had a flat tire. I was sitting alongside the road when a police car drove up behind me. It was Officer Nicholas O’Brien on his way to work in China Grove. In 90-degree weather, he changed my tire for me. I want everyone to know that we do have some really nice officers in China Grove. Thank you very much, Officer O’Brien. — Pat Tyson China Grove

ALEIGH — One lesson learned from the recent election primaries: In a lot of places, voters have pretty good sense after all. In six separate counties in North Carolina, people with previous criminal convictions decided that seeking the job of county sheriff was a good idea; in all six counties, voters didn’t agree. SCOTT The best MOONEYHAM known of the defeated candidates is former Davidson County Sheriff Gerald Hege. A few years back, Hege became a national sensation and media darling because of his striking approach to crime fighting. He painted jail cells pink. He dressed prison road crews in oldfashioned black-and-white striped uniforms. He drove around in a tricked-out, seized car that locals dubbed the bat mobile. Then, in 2004, after allegations that he misused public property, Hege pleaded guilty to two felony counts of obstruction of justice. His plea deal kept him out of prison, but the charismatic Hege lost his job. Six years later, Hege hoped voters were ready to forgive and forget. They weren’t. He got pasted at the ballot box. Hege received just 24 percent of the vote in losing to incumbent Davidson County Sheriff David Grice. The story was pretty much the same around the state. Other losing sheriff candidates with criminal convictions were Robert “Nub” Taylor in Avery County, David Morrow in Cleveland County, one-time sheriff Stanley James in Washington County, Willie Tharpe in Wilkes County and Mark Stewart in McDowell County. Only one of the six, James, received more than 30 percent of the vote. Despite the sound defeats, the unwillingness of those with criminal pasts to exhibit a little shame and discretion has other sheriffs and some state legislators worried. The North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association and some legislators would like to see passage of legislation intended to prohibit convicted felons from holding the office of county sheriff. A bill sponsored by Republican Sen. Stan Bingham of Davidson County would put the issue before state voters. The worry is that voters, in every case, may not show such good judgment. If not, if a convicted felon won a sheriff’s race, some odd circumstances would arise. Convicted felons can’t carry firearms. Hege, prior to the primary, argued that sheriffs don’t need to carry guns. Maybe, but they would still be making decision about guns — their purchase, their storage, administration of gun permits and any number of other gun-related issues. Eddie Caldwell of the N.C. Sheriffs Association also points out that state regulations bar felons from being hired as deputy sheriffs or other sworn law enforcement officers. So, it’s OK for the top law enforcement officer in the county to have a criminal conviction but not those whom he directs? Some people have argued that the regulations do apply to both deputies and their sheriff bosses. Those arguments, though, are just one more indication of the legal wrangling and general havoc that might ensue if a convicted felon won a sheriff’s election. Allowing the state’s voters, as a whole, to put the issue to rest would be a better alternative. • • • Scott Mooneyham writes columns for Capitol Press Association.

Dow’s 376-point drop biggest in more than a year NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks took their deepest plunge in more than a year Thursday as fears grew that Europe’s debt crisis could spread around the world and undermine the U.S. economic recovery. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 376 points, its biggest point drop since February 2009. All the major indexes were down well over 3 percent and are now showing losses for 2010. Interest rates fell sharply in the Treasury market as investors once again sought the safety of U.S. government debt. The number of people applying for unemployment benefits last week rose unexpectedly and the Greek government’s response to its debt crisis sparked new protests in Athens, but analysts said neither event appeared to set off Thursday’s selling. They said more investors seemed to be grasping the possibility that the U.S. recovery could be in jeopardy, and

SALISBURY POST

BY MIKE LONDON

GRANITE QUARRY — Since the first pitch of 2006, East Rowan coach Brian Hightower’s record is 117-29. That means the Mustangs have won four out of five for five years, but Hightower still doesn’t sleep well once the calendar turns to May. His latest team is 25-2 and ranked near the top of every poll, but he’s antsy about his 3A third-round home game tonight at 7 p.m. against Mount Pleasant (17-10). “Yeah, we’re pretty good,” he said. “But that doesn’t stop me from worrying like crazy.” East’s team batting average is .358, the ERA is 1.71 and the defense is serious. Hightower loves his team,

but the playoffs are oneand-done. One hot pitcher or one missed call and it could be all over. T h a t HOLMES t h o u g h t s c a r e s Hightower because he may never coach a third baseman as good as Noah Holmes again or have another shortstop with Preston Troutman’s arm. Hightower also worries about his ace — right-hander Thomas Allen (8-1). Mount Pleasant’s all right-handed lineup looks like an ideal matchup, but Allen is dealing with a strained forearm.

Brown linked to East

ASHEBORO — Rowan C o u n t y Randolph 8 won’t go Rowan 7 undefeated. Shorthanded Rowan opened the American Legion season with an 8-7 loss to Randolph County on Thursday night. Randolph, which suited up only 10 players, scored three runs in the eighth for a comefrom-behind victory. As the host of this summer’s state tournament, Randolph’s historic home at McCrary Park has undergone a serious facelift that includes a synthetic infield. Down the road, both perennial powers also will have a much different look. Two schools that feed Randolph hadn’t finished the prep playoffs, and Rowan will get a complete makeover once players from East (25-2) arrive.

Last night was a chance for players from West, North and Salisbury to make an impression, and some did. “Everybody looked a little apprehensive early, but then we settled in and did OK,” Rowan coach Jim Gantt said. Rowan spotted the home team a 5-1 lead after four innings. Belmont Abbey’s Forrest Buchanan, one of last summer’s heroes, allowed four runs in three innings but pitched better than it sounds. Buchanan was followed to the mound by 2009 East graduates Cody Laws and Alex Litaker. They gave Rowan a chance to come back. Trailing 5-2 entering the seventh, Rowan erupted for five runs. Zack Simpson, Chandler Jones and Matt Laurens had hits to make it 5-3. Matt Mauldin was already 2-for-2 when he followed Laurens to the plate.

After finishing second at its regional meet for two consecutive years, A.L. Brown’s boys track team broke through with a championshiplevel performance. Brown coach Noah Lyon then tried to give away the accompanying hardware. The Wonders and East Rowan — driven to honor the memory of Jamey “Big Daddy” Ledbetter, an assistant coach who had died from pancreatic cancer six days earlier — tied for first place at the 3A Midwest Regional on Saturday in Granite Quarry. Lyon didn’t know about East’s source of motivation until LYON late in the meet, when he noticed how hard the Mustangs were competing and struck up a conversation with Laurie Wyrick. There were two winners but only one championship plaque. East officials told Lyon to take it because, as regional hosts, they’d have an easier time ordering a second one from the NCHSAA. Lyon, understanding the emotions attached to East’s accomplishment, wanted the Mustangs to accept the plaque instead. “It was a ROSEMAN very, very nice gesture on their part,” East coach Rick Roseman said. The two teams, now linked by their displays of good sportsmanship, will return to action today at the 3A state meet in Greensboro. The Wonders are more of a threat because Tavis Bailey and Jerrod Lipscomb are capable of producing double-digit points against elite competition, but Rowan County has a pair of top seeds in B.J. Grant (South) and Daishion Barger (West). East, which insisted that the Wonders keep the regional plaque, will have 10 entries at the state meet. One is the 4x400 team of Hunter Arey, Evan Hiatt, Ben Hancock and Joseph Furtado.

SOUTH’S QUAN GLASPY

LANDIS — B.J. Grant and Quan Glaspy grew up in the same neighborhood on the north side of Kannapolis. They’ve shared high-fives on the football, basketball and track teams at South Rowan, and now they’ll head to GRANT St. Paul’s to play football together. “I can’t shake him,” the stocky Glaspy said with a smile. “We both got accepted, so we decided to go to the same school. It will be a little more fun with us being there

for each other.” South’s G-Men have made a habit of following each other. Grant returned a kickoff for a touchdown against Salisbury last fall. It took two months, but Glaspy matched his buddy by taking one back against Carson. “I didn’t think I had that kickoff against Salisbury in me,” said Grant, GLASPY who swung momentum South’s way with that return. “That was the best thing my senior year — that and beating Kannapolis.”

Various Big Ten Conference officials continue to insist that the league’s spring meetings will be anticlimactic on the expansion front. That may be true, but it’s difficult to believe the league’s 11 athletic directors will return home without important information to relay to their campus leaders. Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany has made it clear that some degree of expansion probably is on the way, although he repeatedly has said there is no specific DELANY timetable or definite number of new members set. It’s virtually certain at least one team will be pulled in. Just one would be enough to allow the conference to stage a championship football game, which probably would increase annual revenue by $8 million. If the expansion is to be only the one team, the process could move along quickly. But if the many rumors are true that three to five new schools could be targeted, Delany and his staff will face a good deal of fencebuilding within the current membership. The perfect example in that regard is the ACC. The league’s acquisition of three Big East teams so rearranged the landscape that the governor of Virginia at time — Mark Warner — ultimately emerged as the primary power broker.

Salisbury falls in 2A semifinals BY BRET STRELOW

bstrelow@salisburypost.com

Salisbury’s Steven Page jumped over the baseline and pumped two N-C 5 fists after seeing Will Salisbury 1 Huggins’ shot sail long on match point. Page shook hands with his opponent, who then walked away to retrieve his towel. Huggins located his teammates, offered a thumbs-up and yelled, “Way to go Red Devils.” Page’s match-ending victory at No. 1 singles served as a consolation prize for the Hornets, who fell 5-1 at home against NewtonConover in a 2A state semifinal Thursday.

Salisbury was still alive heading into doubles during a 7-2 loss at Newton in midApril, but the Hornets (19-3) probably pushed coach Brian Tate’s Red Devils (25-0) harder in the rematch. “I think collectively, from PAGE top to bottom, that this match was much more competitive,” Salisbury coach Chris Myers said. “Coach Tate’s dad said that’s the best they’ve played all year, and they had to. Newton-Conover today had to play their best, and they did.

Lakers steamrolling defenseless Suns BY BOB BAUM

Playoffs

PHOENIX — A week ago, the Phoenix Suns were talking about how they no longer were marshmallows on defense, that this team had a toughness its predecessors sorely lacked. That idea was buried by a scoring avalanche in Los Angeles, where the Lakers amassed a total of 252 points to go up 2-0 in the Western Conference finals, shooting 58

percent in each game. Now the Suns have three days before Game 3 in Phoenix to try to figure out how to slow a team that seems primed for another title. Neither team practiced on Thursday. Both will resume workouts on Friday in preparation for Sunday night’s contest. The Lakers’ Pau Gasol acknowledged that “it must be frustrating” for the Suns to essentially be beaten at their own high-scoring, hot-shoot-

ing game. He expects a stiffer challenge as the series shifts to Phoenix. “It’s going to take a much bigger mindset or focus to go there and be successful and put the type of games and wins that we put in here,” Gasol said. History certainly is against the Suns. The Lakers are 41-1 when they are up 2-0 in a bestof-seven series. Los Angeles coach Phil Jackson is 46-0 when his teams have won the first two games of a series.

And no team has come back from 0-2 to win the West finals. “We’re not about to give up,” Suns coach Alvin Gentry said. “... You know when we won our two home games against San Antonio (in the conference semifinals), everybody just said, `Well, the only thing they’ve done is what they’re supposed to do.’ So the only thing they’ve done is what they’re supposed to do. We’ll go with that.”

Lewis’ numbers not so magical in East finals BY ANTONIO GONZALEZ Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. — There might always be pressure from the lucrative contract Rashard Lewis signed with the Orlando Magic, and his statistics through two games in the Eastern Conference finals aren’t making that go away. Eleven points. Four field goals. About $18.8 million this season. The highest paid member of the Magic, Lewis’ series slump is a big reason why the Magic are in an 0-2 hole entering Game 3 at Boston on Saturday night. And he knows it. “After we lost that second game on our home court, it’s been tough ever since,” Lewis said following Thursday’s practice. “You don’t point the

finger. You don’t want to blame. You just look yourself in the mirror and see what you could do to help this team win.” The Magic would take anything at this point. A clutch playoff performer in the past, Lewis has been blanketed by a revived Kevin Garnett and a relentless Celtics defense. Lewis is 4-for-17 from the field, including 1 of 9 from 3-point range. Garnett and Co. have often face-guarded Lewis, staying with him no matter where the ball is being passed. The formula, thus far, has all but taken Lewis out of the series. “I’m just trying to keep a hand up and run him off 3s and make him do things he doesn’t want to do,” Garnett said. After hitting several gamewinning shots in last season’s run to the NBA finals, Lewis averaged 17 points per game

MUSTANGS FROM 1B

Allen was scheduled to try a short bullpen session Thursday to determine his health and sharpness. If that went well, he may throw tonight against coach Bryan Tyson’s Tigers. “We all hope Thomas can pitch,” said Holmes, who is batting .476 with 15 doubles and 26 RBIs. “But we’ll be ready to play either way. Our young pitchers have come through all year, and we know we can count on our defense.” Tyson has been around a while. A decade ago, his loaded Central Cabarrus clubs and Jeff Safrit’s powerful East teams staged rumbles in the old SPC that people still talk about. Tyson has visited rowdy, jam-packed Staton Field often and knows he’s driving an activity bus into a hornet’s nest. “Tyson’s a coach I’ve got a lot of respect for,” Hightower said. “He works hard at it and does it right. He can stay calm in pressure situations, and that rubs off on his kids.” Hightower had a chance Wednesday to watch the Tigers calmly rally against South Rowan and was impressed with an offense led by Brandon Burris, Grayson Atwood and Matt Barrier. Burris has committed to Appalachian State. “Basically, Mount is a No. 1 seed,” Hightower said. The Tigers shared the SPC title with Northwest Cabarrus, but they were relegated to a No. 2 seed by a loss to A.L. Brown in the first round of the league tournament. Mount Pleasant will be the third straight SPC team the Mustangs have encountered in the playoffs. A fourth straight matchup with the SPC is possible. Northwest, home against Catholic tonight, is rolling. “Northwest has a great team, but all I’m thinking about right now is Mount Pleasant,” Hightower said. “They’re the team that’s keeping me awake at night.”

in the second round against Atlanta only a couple of weeks ago. That has disappeared against a Celtics team closing fast on Orlando’s shooters. Lewis heard criticism after averaging 14.1 points this season, the lowest since he became a regular starter in 1999-2000 with Seattle. Some felt the production was not enough for a player who signed a $118 million, six-year contract with Orlando in 2007. But the converted power forward shot 43 percent this season, the same as when he was an All-Star last season. The difference was, with the addition of Vince Carter and a talent-rich roster, Lewis had almost 400 fewer attempts. He backed up the contract with stellar shooting in sweeps of Atlanta and Charlotte in the first two rounds. But Lewis has become the

symbol of the team’s problems against Boston. The Magic shot 39 percent in Game 2. “No pressure on myself at all. I’m playing loose,” Lewis said. “The first two games I thought I played pretty well, just on offense I haven’t gotten very many shots.” Lewis often spoke about sacrificing individual goals, and he wasn’t discouraged about his numbers dipping. That is, so long as the unselfishness translated into wins. That hasn’t happened in the conference finals. Boston is devoting many of its efforts on him — not Dwight Howard. “You can say it’s a compliment,” Lewis said, “but at the same time it’s frustrating when you don’t win and you want to help your team win ballgames.”

Cammalleri leads Canadiens past Flyers BY JOHN WAWROW Associated Press

MONTREAL — Michael Cammalleri and Canadiens 5 the Montreal Flyers 1 Canadiens finally solved goalie Michael Leighton. Cammalleri scored in the first period to end Montreal’s two-game drought against Leighton, leading the Canadiens to a 5-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 3 of

the Eastern Conference final. Tom Pyatt and Dominic Moore had a goal and assist apiece for Montreal, which earned its first win in the series. Brian Gionta and Marc-Andre Bergeron also scored as Leighton’s shutout streak was snapped at 172:05. “We are a much better team when our backs are against the wall,” Gionta said. “We’ve dealt with it all year.” Philadelphia’s Simon Gagne foiled Jaroslav Halak’s shutout bid

by scoring 8:22 into the third period. Leighton stopped 34 shots. The Flyers had won six straight, dating to their second-round series win over Boston during which they overcame a 3-0 series deficit. It was Leighton’s first loss in five starts since taking over after Brian Boucher hurt his knee. Cammalleri got it started with his team-leading 13th goal, opening the scoring 7:05 into the game. Halak finished with 25 saves. Playing their first game at home

in 10 days, the Canadiens outshot Philadelphia 28-13 in building a 3-0 lead on Moore’s goal midway through the second period. Moore’s score sent the raucous crowd into a fury, leading to derisive chants of “Leighton! Leighton!” Game 4 of the best-of-seven series is Saturday in Montreal. During Leighton’s shutout streak, the Flyers outscored their opponents 13-0, dating to their 4-3 win against Boston in Game 7 of their second-round series.

Quan Glaspy makes a touchdown catch during South Rowan’s victory over A.L. Brown.

TOGETHER FROM 1B

Glaspy (5-11, 190 pounds) is hard-nosed, strong and versatile. He could help the St. Paul’s Tigers on offense, defense or special teams. Grant has the ability to be a steal for the Lawrenceville, Va., school that is one of the lower-profile institutions in the Division II CIAA. Physically, Grant is D-I. As far as explosive athleticsm, put him right up there in Rowan County with Salisbury’s Darien Rankin and West’s Domonique Noble. “An awful lot of coaches loved what they saw on film of B.J,” South coach Jason Rollins said. “They loved that pure football ability.” Lean, yet muscular, Grant (6-2, 180) can catch the football. He also has dunked basketballs fiercely, rejected shots with authority and highjumped 6 feet, 10 inches. “He amazes me,” Glaspy said. “How many guys are there that can jump 6-10?” Not that many, although Grant said he plans to pursue two sports at St. Paul’s and will join a 7-foot high jumper on the track team. “I’m hoping to learn a lot of things from him,” Grant said. What Grant learned at South was patience. He’s among the school’s most talented receivers ever, but he played his three varsity sea-

sons for a program that emphasized the run. In that light, Grant’s career numbers — 84 catches, 1,402 yards, 18 TDs — are pretty special. In the past 50 years, only 13 Rowan receivers have caught more balls and only 10 produced more yardage. Grant is second to Adrian Parker in both categories in South’s all-time book. Glaspy’s not a guy you’ll find in South’s record book because he never specialized in any one thing. He was primarily a defensive back, but he also scored eight TDs as a senior — four receiving, three rushing and one on that kickoff return. When running back D’Andre Harris was struggling with a hamstring pull late in the 2009 season, Glaspy went both ways and more than held his own. “D’Andre goes down and Quan steps in and we really don’t miss a beat,” Rollins said. “Not many kids could’ve done that.” Glaspy has very good speed. His contributions to the track team came in the sprints and the sprint relays. He’s never really been looked at as a marquee guy, but at least one coach, offensive coordinator Mickey Lineberger of the 3AA state champion South Point Red Raiders, believes he can be. Rollins, who played at South Point, often studies film with Lineberger be-

cause their offenses have a lot in common. Watching South Rowan on film, Lineberger kept asking about No. 5. “Wow! Who’s that kid? Where’s he going?” No. 5 was Glaspy. “I respect his opinion, and he told me No. 5 was really special and that he was the most underrated kid we had,” Rollins said. “St. Paul’s said a lot of the same things when they saw Quan on film. They like him on offense more than defense — as a slot receiver or wideout.” Rollins is confident both players will do fine on the field and make the adjustments to handle college academics. Glaspy is interested in a business degree, and Grant possesses quite a bit of mechanical talent. “I’m excited for both of them because what’s better than football and the chance to get an education from it?” Rollins said. “These two kids need football, and football needs them.” St. Paul’s is 200 miles north of South Rowan, but Rollins figures his guys learned valuable lessons during a 9-3 senior season that will help in tough times. “All our coaches pounded it in to them hard that it was time to grow up and be men,” Rollins said. “Now it’s time for them to get away from here and be somebody. We all believe in them and want them to do it. Now they just have to go do it.”

South’s B.J. Grant enters the 3A state meet as the No. 1 seed in the high jump. He finished third last year in Greensboro.

An inspired effort enabled that relay squad to finish second and score eight critical points in the last race of the regional. “I could see their kids really thought a lot of that coach,” said Lyon, an assistant starter at the meet, “and I think the coach really thought a lot of their kids.” Two relay teams ran into trouble in that closing race, allowing A.L. Brown’s 4x400 team to finish with the sixthfastest time even though it participated in the slower heat. The Wonders received the one point necessary to tie East. “Kids care about people,” Lyon said. “They’re 16, 17, 18, and sometimes we get aggravated at them. At the same time, 99 percent of them have good hearts. “That’s the great thing about high school athletics. A lot of their kids and a lot of our kids may never go on to compete in any other athletics. Especially their kids, they’re going to remember they won that regional championship. They may have tied with us, but they’re going to remember they won that for that coach.” Lyon praised his foursome of Jharrod Evans, Anterrio Evans, Timothy Hall and Matthew Gainey for running hard enough to capitalize on the unexpected chance to score from the first heat. That said, the lucky break left Lyon with conflicting feelings. “As I saw East was going to beat us in that 4x400, before the disqualification or anything like that, I wanted to win it,” Lyon said, “but I wasn’t totally just ter-

favorite in the 110s thanks to regional time of 14.18, and Crest’s Demonte Wilson is seeded second. South’s Grant won a regional title in the high jump by clearing 6-8. Parkwood’s Marcus Leak and Hickory Ridge’s Coye Still succeeded at 6-6. West’s 4x200 team of Barger, Brandon Ijames, Trey Mashore and Ershawn Wilder is seeded third, followed by A.L. Brown. West’s Amber Holloway is the most noteworthy competitor on the girls side. She’s seeded second in the 100 hurdles (15.03) behind Jay M. Robinson’s Erin Tucker (14.63) and third in the 300 hurdles (46.47). Concord’s Juanita Leto and South Central’s Jasmine Marros posted 46.34s in their regionals.

Tampa sweeps Yanks Associated Press

NEW YORK — Carlos Pena, James Shields and the Tampa Bay Rays left Yankee Stadium with more than a twogame sweep and baseball’s best record. They took off supremely confident they can play well in the home of the World Series champions. “This ballpark didn’t treat us kindly last year,” manager Joe Maddon said Thursday night after an 8-6 win. “It was important to show that we can win here. It’s important in regards to the mental factor.” Pena homered twice and Ben Zobrist and B.J. Upton also connected as Tampa Bay battered Andy Pettitte and posted its sixth straight win. The Rays became the first team to sweep the Yankees this season, doing it at a park where Tampa Bay had lost six in a row until this week. “These guys are hot as a pistol right now. Anytime we make a mistake, they are on it,” Alex Rodriguez said. Mariners 4, Blue Jays 3 SEATTLE — Ken Griffey Jr.’s game-winning, pinch-hit single in the ninth capped Seattle’s three-run rally off AL saves leader Kevin Gregg. “The last two weeks were probably the toughest in his career,” Mike Sweeney said. “But he knew we had his back. Probably everyone in Seattle had his back.” Griffey dressed quickly and said he would not talk publicly about his retribution. Royals 9, Indians 3 CLEVELAND — Luke Hochevar pitched a complete game and Alberto Callaspo hit a three-run homer. Tigers 5, Athletics 2 OAKLAND, Calif. — Jeremy Bonderman won for the first time in over a month. Red Sox 6, Twins 2 BOSTON — Kevin Youkilis hit a three-run homer to help Jon Lester earn his fourth straight victory. The Twins fell out of sole possession of first place and into a tie with Detroit. Angels 6, White Sox 5 CHICAGO — Ervin Santana threw seven innings, and Juan Rivera hit a two-run homer. A.J. Pierzynski lined a ground-rule double over the left-field wall with the bases loaded in the eighth inning, leaving Pierre at third. He would’ve had a chance at scoring the tying run from first. Andruw Jones flied out with runners on second and third. Rangers 13, Orioles 7 ARLINGTON, Texas — Nelson Cruz had a three-run homer and four RBIs in his first career four-hit game. NATIONAL LEAGUE Cardinals 4, Marlins 2 ST. LOUIS — Adam Wainwright dominated after a shaky start and Matt Holliday got his first two RBIs in four games since moving to third in the order for the Cardinals. Phillies 5, Cubs 4 PHILADELPHIA — Raul Ibanez hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning, Jimmy Rollins hit a three-run homer and Chase Utley also went deep for the Phillies. Brewers 4, Pirates 3 PITTSBURGH — George Kottaras, playing only because of an injury, doubled in a run and Milwaukee rallied from a three-run deficit to end a nine-game losing streak. Carlos Villanueva finished it off by pitching the ninth for the first save this season by a Brewers reliever other than Trevor Hoffman. He sat out to work on mechanical problems. Mets 10, Nationals 7 WASHINGTON — David Wright hit a three-run double and had four RBIs for New York, and Raul Valdes filled in admirably for injured starter John Maine for five innings. Maine threw just five pitches — a walk to Nyjer Morgan — before manager Jerry Manuel removed him. Maine, who has had problems with his right shoulder, left the game “for precautionary reasons,” the Mets said. Rockies 4, Astros 0 HOUSTON — Ubaldo Jimenez allowed one hit over seven innings and Troy Tulowitzki had a three-run homer. The only hit Jimenez (8-1) allowed was Humberto Quintero’s single to start the third inning. Jimenez improved his major league-low ERA to 0.99.

Braves stun Cincy BY PAUL NEWBERRY Associated Press

ATLANTA — Brooks Conrad slowed up as he Braves 10 rounded first Reds 9 base, unsure if his drive had cleared the left field wall to give Atlanta an improbable victory. Then he saw Laynce Nix swat at his empty glove in frustration. The ball went over. Game over. Conrad hit a pinch-hit grand slam Thursday to finish off a sevenrun ninth inning that gave the Braves a 10-9 victory over the Cincinnati Reds, who fell out of first CONRAD in the NL Central. “It was a horrible ending,” said Reds manager Dusty Baker, who appeared close to breaking down after the game. “Boy, that was a tough one.” The Braves put together the biggest ninth-inning comeback since Cleveland rallied from six runs down against Tampa Bay on May 25, 2009, according to STATS LLC. “I hit it and I was kind of talking to it to get out of there and I saw (Nix) jump up,” Conrad said. “From my angle ... it looked like he kind of brought it back. I put my hands no my helmet and said, ’No way he caught that.”’ He didn’t. “I thought I had it,” Nix said. “It just bounced out.” Atlanta fell behind 8-0 against rookie sensation Mike Leake and was still down 9-3 heading to the ninth. Four straight hits gave the

Laynce Nix can’t reach the ball on a game-winning grand slam by Atlanta’s Brooks Conrad. Braves hope. A walk to David Ross loaded the bases with no outs, bringing the tying run to the plate. Martin Prado hit a grounder to third that looked like a sure double play, but Miguel Cairo couldn’t get the ball out of his glove. Jason Heyward struck out, and Cincinnati turned to closer Francisco Cordero (1-3) for the last two outs. Instead, Conrad hit a drive that deflected off Nix’s glove as he reached over the top of the wall at the 380-foot sign.

Knox narrows options to UNC, Georgia Tech Associated Press

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Transferring Alabama player Justin Knox says he has narrowed his destination choices to North Carolina and Georgia Tech. The 6-foot-9, 245-pound junior forward told reporters he will announce his decision next week. Knox started 49 games for the Crimson Tide the past two seasons. He was granted a conditional release from his scholarship.  BERKELEY, Calif. — Point guard Justin Cobbs is transferring from Minnesota to Cal.

NBA

PHILADELPHIA — The 76ers agreed to terms with Doug Collins to become their new coach, two people familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. Collins is 332-287 in coaching stints with Chicago, Detroit and Washington.  New Jersey Nets team president Rod Thorn will take over as the team’s general manager. Thorn told the Bergen (N.J.) Record and The New York Daily News that the franchise would combine the two positions instead of replacing Kiki Vandeweghe.  NEW YORK — Referee Joe DeRosa has been suspended without pay for throwing a ball at a fan during halftime of an NBA playoff game in Orlando. At halftime of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals between Orlando and Boston, DeRosa was walking to the scorer’s table to get the warm-up jackets for his crew. A fan behind the table approached DeRosa, gesturing with his arms and appearing to be shouting at the veteran official. DeRosa flipped the game ball to the fan, who tossed it back.

CARROLLTON, Texas — Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is a step closer to competing in the U.S. Open golf tournament. Romo was among seven golfers who moved on to the sectional round following a round at The Honors Club of Dallas. Romo shot a 2-under 69, which put him in a four-man playoff for three spots. Romo advances to a 36-hole qualifier June 7 at The Woodlands. If he’s among the top finishers there, he would have a spot in the season’s second major tournament June 17-20 at Pebble Beach.  WILMINGTON — Purdue shot an 8-under 280 to take the lead after three rounds of the NCAA women’s golf championships.

SPORTS

SALISBURY POST

BIG TEN

ALL-COUNTY SWIMMING

FROM 1B

Duke and North Carolina, the two schools that account for about 99 percent of the ACC’s reputation as a basketball kingpin, weren’t wild about the idea of adding so much as a 10th team, much less zooming to 12. Schedules had to be revamped across the board, travel expenses in minor sports soared, and any semblance of a “conference family” was forever abandoned. So much ill will was created among the old Big East clan that pre-raid relationships will never be restored. At the end of the turmoil, the ACC wound up a weaker basketball conference, roughly the same in football and with a baseball “championship” tournament that prohibits four teams every year from even competing. The per-team television income remained about the same as when the ACC had nine members, and those allimportant football championship games have done nothing whatsoever to create any sort of national interest or prestige. What happened within and to the ACC will not be casually disregarded by the Big Ten presidents and boards of trustees, most that ultimately are supposed to account for their actions to taxpayers and state governments. In other words, the proexpansionists in the Big Ten simply can’t assume that all of the wheeling and dealing can be done behind locked doors and be forever hidden from the public. Warner shot a hole in that sort of nonsense when he told the ACC eiEASLEY ther to include Virginia Tech or expand without the support of the University of Virginia. Mike Easley and/or the North Carolina System Board of Governors could have done exactly the same favor for East Carolina but didn’t so choose. College conferences often like to think they can operate in a vacuum and make up rules as they please, but that’s not really the case. Expansions are all about money and allowing television networks to gain more control over college sports. But the process also involves real people and can touch on issues that transcend athletic competition. If the Big Ten is smart, those matters will be addressed at length in the near future.

SALISBURY FROM 1B

They were able to win 5-1, and we were right there with them.” Newton-Conover won the first five completed matches, and Page pulled out a 6-7 (2-7), 6-3, (10-7) victory. Page and Lewis Young (third-set tiebreaker) had prevailed for Salisbury in the first meeting. Seth Gentry (third-set tiebreaker) and Alex Weant were involved in close losses that day, but Austin Flynn and Alan Lebowitz combined to win only five games. Fifth-seeded Dillon Cervantez posted a 6-0, 6-2 victory against Gentry on Thursday, and every other match was tight. “I felt great about today, and I know the boys were loose beforehand,” Myers said. “I thought the result was going to be different, but to NewtonConover’s credit, they just played better than us. We played great. They just played a little bit better, and that happens sometimes. “I can honestly say without a doubt it’s been the best season in 12 years since I’ve been here. We had such a great group of kids, but unfortunately we came up a little bit short.” Sixth-seeded Austin Adams followed Cervantez’s victory with a 6-4, 6-4 win against Weant. Third-seeded Ryan Lampe won 6-2, 5-7, (11-9) against Lebowitz, who trailed

The 2010 All-Rowan County girls swim team includes, front row, from left: Molly Robinson (Salisbury), Katelyn Shuping (East), Madi Ralston (Salisbury), Sarah Agner (East) and Shelby Carrion (Salisbury). Second row: Meagan Barbetto (East), Anna-Leigh Shuping (East), Katie Cater (Salisbury), Katie Egloff (East) and Madison Hall (East).

8-5 in the third-set tiebreaker before twice pulling even. Fourth-seeded John Reid closed out a 6-4, 6-4 victory against Young, and secondseeded Hang Lak Choi punched the Red Devils’ ticket to a final against Northwood (15-6) by winning 6-4, 7-6 (7-5) against Flynn. Choi, who overcame secondset deficits of 4-1 and 5-4, captured the last two points of the tiebreaker. “I probably played my best match of the season,” said Flynn, the only senior in Salisbury’s top six. “I kinda kept playing the same game, and he was playing really aggressive. It depended whether those really aggressive shots went in or not, and he started hitting some really good shots.” Huggins fought off one set point while facing a 5-4 deficit against Page’s serve and bolted to a 6-0 lead in the first-set tiebreaker. Page bounced back to force a third-set tiebreaker and trailed 7-5 before winning the final five points. “I didn’t serve as well as I could have in the first set, and Coach Myers told me some things,” Page said. “I was able to get it to come around and hold a couple times, break him and get the (second) set. “I had to get some returns in and make sure to get some points out of my serve. I had double-faulted a couple times. Just getting it in deep and not being on the defensive immedi-

ately made me rally with him, and I figured out he doesn’t like that.” Page was playing for pride at that point. The dual-team victory propelled Newton-Conover to the 2A final for the fourth consecutive year. It lost the previous three to Cardinal Gibbons, which has moved up to 3A. “It was an open door for us this season,” Tate said. “There’s no Gibbons standing in the way. I know Salisbury is a young team, Shelby is a young team. We may not get back there next year, so I preached to our guys to take advantage of this open door and step through it because we may not get this shot again.” Tate said he looked at the shell of the 2A playoff bracket during the preseason and figured his team would have to visit Salisbury in the Western final. The Hornets rolled through league play without a loss, shut out their first two postseason foes and earned a 6-3 win against Shelby in a third-round match Tuesday. “It’s been an honor to play for Coach Myers the last four years, especially this year,” Flynn said. “It’s a special feeling knowing that every match, especially today, everyone just gave it their all and gave it their whole heart. Sometimes in sports you don’t have the whole team giving it their all. I feel confident we left everything we had out there. All year we just stuck together as a team.”

Salisbury’s Steven Page prepares to hit a backhand during his 6-7 (2-7), 6-3, (10-7) victory against Newton-Conover’s Will Huggins. Page went 27-1 this season.

When should meds and supplements be taken? should be taken on an empty stomach. And, whenever vitamins are consumed, do not wash them down with alcohol. Calcium comes in two forms — calcium carbonate, which is more readily available and inexpensive, or calcium citrate. Either form should be taken at least four hours apart from any thyroid medication. This also holds true for calcium antacids, iron supplements and many drugs prescribed or recommended as antacids. Calcium carbonate should be taken with meals; calcium citrate can be taken either with meals or on an empty stomach. Calcium should be taken in 500-milligram doses or less at one time. Therefore, if your supplement is a 1,000-milligram tablet, split it into two doses, because it can hamper the absorption of some medications, including those for high blood pressure and antibiotics, so a timing modification might be required. Speak with your physician for his or her recommendations. I do not believe there are any specific requirements for omega-3 fish oils. To the best of my knowledge, they can be taken at any time of day and either on an empty stomach or a full one. Drugs, whether prescription or over-the-counter, can interfere with other medications. Their effect can be reduced, and they can also lead to gastrointestinal issues and a number of other problems. Make sure that your physician knows what supplements you are currently taking so he or she can guide you accordingly. It appears to me you are diligently attempting to do

the right thing at the right time. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “Vitamins & Minerals.” Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order to Newsletter, P.O.

There are deals in which the declarer needs a defensive error. Then it helps if he has some subterfuge up his sleeve. If you were South in today's deal, what would you do in three no-trump after West leads the spade king? As always when in notrump, start by counting your top tricks, your instant winners. If you don't do that, you will misplay many contracts. Here, you have eight top tricks: one spade, three hearts, one diamond and three clubs. Assuming diamonds are 3-2, which they usually will be, you can establish a ninth trick in that suit. However, the opponents might cash at least three spades and two diamonds. If diamonds will not work, though, you will have to get a fourth club trick. You might as well find out the spade break. So, duck the

Dear Dr. Gott: My doctors have told me that there are better times during the day to take vitamins or calcium. I take a thyroid pill in the morning. About an hour or so later, I take my vitamin with an omega-3 tablet and then take my calcium tablet with a late lunch or after my dinner. Am I taking them cor- DR. PETER rectly as far as getting all the GOTT benefits from them? I hope you can answer this question for me. Dear Reader: You ask an extremely important question, and your doctors are correct in what they tell you. In some respects, the most appropriate time of day to take vitamins and other medications is when you are least likely to forget, such as the first thing each day. Thyroid medication should be taken on an empty stomach a half-hour before breakfast. If you are a swing-shift employee, judge accordingly and plan to take the medication at an appropriate time. Vitamins can be taken at almost any time of the day, so just before or following a meal is satisfactory. Be sure to read the recommendation printed on each vitamin bottle to determine what the manufacturer believes is most appropriate. There are some supplements that work better when taken on an empty stomach. For example, if B-complex vitamins upset your stomach, take them with food. Iron supplements

first two tricks and take the third spade after East discards a heart. Now it would be too optimistic to assume East has KQ-doubleton or K-Q-J-tripleton of diamonds. Instead, hope West has the club jack and try to sneak a fourth club trick past him. Lead your club nine -- not the 10, because West will surely cover that card if he has the jack. But he might fail to cover the nine. And if he does fail, you will have your ninth trick in the bag. When you are taking a finesse and do not want an opponent to cover a card, lead the lowest one you have that will

win the trick. If, though, you do want a cover, lead the highest.

Barber resigns from school system

Commissioner quits amid allegations of being intoxicated in class BY SCOTT JENKINS AND K ARISSA M INN

news@salisburypost.com

JON BARBER

Rowan County Commissioner Jon Barber has resigned from his job as a teacher with the Rowan-Salisbury School System amid allegations he was drunk in a classroom full of students. Barber was removed from his Southeast Middle School classroom Wednesday morning because of suspicion that he was intoxicated, multiple sources told the Post.

He resigned Thursday, citing personal reasons, school system spokeswoman Rita Foil said. In a telephone interview Thursday, Barber, 50, refused to respond to the allegations. He said that he is leaving the school system for “other opportunities.” “I just left early yesterday and told them I was pursuing other opportunities,” Barber said. “There’s nothing else for me to say.” He said he would like to be doing something related to agriculture. Barber’s family owns a farm in Mount Ulla.

When asked if he planned to remain on the Rowan County Board of Commissioners, Barber said, “Absolutely. Without a doubt.” According to the sources, Barber’s principal removed him from the sixthgrade social studies classroom as students were preparing to take their endof-grade tests. Dr. Jim Emerson, chairman of the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education, was informed of the incident late Wednesday and said he could not go into detail about it Thursday.

OPENING NIGHT AT THE NORVELL

“It’s still a personnel issue, and kind of a personal issue with Jon Barber,” Emerson said after Barber’s resignation. “It’s hard to find something positive out of the situation, but I’m sorry that it has occurred.” Emerson said that, as far as he knows, the incident did not affect endof-grade testing for Barber’s students or others at the school. And, as for Barber, Emerson said

Oh, yeah, they’re putting on the shows, too, starting tonight at The Norvell, Salisbury’s new children’s theater on East MARK Fisher Street.

At Donor Appreciation Night, major contributors to the $3 million project enjoyed a private viewing Thursday of the theater’s premiere production, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” They sat in a comfortable 250-seat theater in front of an enormous stage — twice the size of the stage at the mother ship, the Meroney Theater. They walked on the gleaming varnished floor of the main, street-level lobby and brushed against the recently — and I stress, recently — painted walls. They traded war stories of the pool hall’s transformation and patted each other on the back for finding a way to make this

KANNAPOLIS — An assistant state superintendent for West Virginia was hired Thursday afternoon as the new superintendent of the Kannapolis City Schools. Dr. Pamela Cain will replace Dr. Jo Anne Byerly, who is retiring effective June 30. Cain will begin her four-year term effective July 1 and will spend some days working with Byerly between now and then. The Kannapolis City Board of Education voted unanimously at a special 5 p.m. meeting to hire Cain. She signed a contract for a four-year term before a large audience of school system staff and community KATHY CHAFFIN/SALISBURY POST and media represenDr. Pamela Cain tatives. School board member Charles Mitchell noted that Cain was using a pen from Milano, Italy, to sign the contract. “I went over there personally five years ago to get it,” he joked. School Board Chair Danita Rickard introduced Cain as the new superintendent after the board returned from meeting in closed session for about 15 minutes. “We are thrilled to be able to bring Dr. Cain to Kannapolis after an exhaustive search process,” she said. “We hope and believe we have found a worthy successor to Dr. Byerly, and we are confident Dr. Cain will do wonderful things here.” Addressing the board, Cain said, “Thank you so much for believing in me.” She assured the

Mother with two children in car charged with DWI A woman has been charged after authorities say she drove drunk and nearly collided with a deputy sheriff’s vehicle while her two small children rode in the back seat of her car. Ashley Ryan Molina, 26, 220 Patriot Circle, was charged with driving while impaired, no operator’s license, child restraint violation and misdemeanor child abuse. Capt. John Sifford of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said the incident occurred around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. Sgt. Jody Burleyson was on Rowan Mills Road when he met a 2009 Toyota coming head-on toward his patrol car in a no-passing zone. Burleyson pulled over to avoid a collision, then turned and stopped the Toyota. Burleyson said he smelled alcohol on the driver, Molina. She had two children, ages 3 and 4, in the back seat. They were not secured in child seats. Authorities contacted the children’s grandmother and she came to the scene to take the children.

Foreclosure expo provides info Davidson Program helps people in danger of losing their homes

BY SHAVONNE POTTS

spotts@salisburypost.com

Two years ago, Deborah Turnbull inherited a house from her mother who died and she’s been struggling to keep it ever since. Turnbull is in the process of home foreclosure. She has exhausted all avenues and turned to a Home Foreclosure Expo on Thursday at the F&M Trolley Barn. Nearly 50 attendees learned about alternatives such as repayment plans, loan modifications and pre-foreclosure sales. “I’m in a foreclosure situation with my bank,” she said. Her situation is like many across the state and nation who are also going through the foreclosure process. “I got behind because I was sick. When I went back to my job, it was closed,” she said. She had no problems paying the mortgage before she got sick. Turnbull said she’s at the point where her lenders are telling her they have foreclosure packages for her to sign. She’s been to local agencies and her lender, both saying she doesn’t qualify for certain programs. “I don’t want to lose my home,” Turnbull said. She remains unemployed and is raising her grandson. “I hear about all this government funding, but who is it for?” she asked. Thomas Warren heard about the Expo through a friend. “I want to see what’s out there to modify, or other programs,” he said. He said he’s not at the point of foreclosure but just wants to know what options he may have if, “push comes to shove, who do I contact?” W.D. Russell said she’s been making payments on her home, and her lender reduced the payments. But now the lender asked for back pay on the reduction. “I’m in a modification program. I want to see if there’s a better program,” she said. Kay Yang attended the Expo

The family’s home is in foreclosure. Chia saw a flyer about the event. He said he wants some other options in hopes of saving the family’s home, which they’ve been in for the past 13 years. “We’ve been dealing with it for a bit,” Kay said. “We hope there’s something more helpful.” Local Realtor Elia Gegorek attended the Expo for more education about the foreclosure process. “As a Realtor, I thought this would be a good information tool,” she said. She hasn’t had too many dealings with clients who’ve been in the foreclosure process, but she was able to help a client sell a home before foreclosure. “I want to know more about the process,” she said.

UNCC moves into N.C. Research Campus BY EMILY FORD

KANNAPOLIS — The first university to join the N.C. Research Campus is the last public university to have a permanent home there. The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, which opened a business program in Kannapolis 2006 and a scientific program in 2007, finally moved into the campus centerpiece Core Laboratory Building and held a grand opening Thursday night. Dr. Cory Brouwer arrived

An online retailer will add more than 200 jobs in Davidson County, Gov. Bev Perdue’s office announced Thursday. Vitacost.com Inc., also a direct marketer of health and wellness products, will expand its Lexington operation. The company plans to invest $6.7 million and create 228 jobs over the next three years. The project was made possible in part by a $450,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund, Perdue’s press release said. “Competition for jobs is fierce around the country and around the world,” Perdue said. “So it is particularly rewarding when a company recognizes our exceptional business climate and tremendous workforce by continuing to invest and grow in our state.” Vitacost.com, headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., operates a call center and a manufacturing and distribution facility in Lexington. In addition to selling brands such as New Chapter, Atkins, Twinlab and Kashi, the company makes and sells its own products including Nutraceutical Sciences Institute, Cosmeceutical Sciences Institute, Smart Basics and Best of All. The expansion at the Lexington Business Park will allow Vitacost to increase its manufacturing and distribution capabilities to meet growing demand, the press release said. The Lexington plant currently employs 168 people. While individual salaries will vary by job function, the average wage for the new jobs will be more than $30,000 a year plus benefits. The Davidson County average is $29,640. “We are pleased Vitacost has the opportunity to expand its operations in Davidson County, where we have been since 2008,” company CEO Ira Kerker said. “We appreciate the support of the state of North Carolina and the One North Carolina Fund. We look forward to working with our employees and the community to meet the demands of Vitacost’s growing healthy living and wellness customer base.” Others involved in the project include the N.C. Department of Commerce, N.C. Community Colleges, DavidsonWorks Workforce Development Board, Lexington, Davidson County and Davidson Progress. “During these tough economic times, it’s critical to make the right investments that will create jobs and needed investment in our state. This is good news for Davidson County,” said Rep. Hugh Holliman. The One North Carolina Fund provides financial assistance through local governments to attract business projects that will stimulate economic activity and create jobs. Companies receive no money up front and must meet job creation and investment targets to qualify for grant payments. The grants require local matches.

UNC-Charlotte has moved two programs at the N.C. Research Campus into the Core Lab Building.

Troopers involved in chase Seven troopers with the N.C. Highway Patrol were involved in a single-vehicle chase Thursday afternoon, shortly after 3:15 p.m. According to scanner traffic, the chase occurred off of Airport and Gaskey roads. Onlookers reported speeds in excess of 80 mph. No further information was available.

Robbery suspect caught The suspect in an armed robbery of a local convenience store has been arrested in Yadkin County. Lamont Dewayne Dewalt, 18, 445 Memory Lane, Salisbury, was taken into custody by Yadkin County Sheriff’s deputies Wednesday morning after a short foot chase. Dewalt is in the Yadkin County Detention Center with bond set at $20,000. Lt. Chad Moose of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said Dewalt is also a suspect in several robberies in Yadkin County.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office issued warrants for Dewalt on May 15, charging him with robbery with a dangerous weapon. The charge stems from the April 23 armed robbery at Village Grocery at N.C. 601 and East Ridge Road. The robber pulled a small handgun and demanded money, telling the clerk if anybody came outside he would kill them.

Dakota Street in Kannapolis reopens KANNAPOLIS — Dakota Street between Kansas Street and Suburban Avenue has reopened to traffic. The street has been closed since 2008 due to damage from Tropical Storm Faye, when a culvert washed out. The major east-west connector between Ridge Avenue and Cannon Boulevard reopened earlier this week, City Manager Mike Legg said. Because the street was washed out as the result of a natural disaster, the city will be reimbursed by the state for repairs, Legg said. The project cost about $800,000, he said.

A 13-year-old boy who was missing for a couple of days is back home. A tip Wednesday led authorities to 13-yearold Francisco Perez Navarro, who was staying in a van behind a Hispanic store in the China Grove area. Capt. John Sifford of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said the boy was returned home safe but hungry. On Monday, the Sheriff’s Office had issued an appeal for help from the public in locating the boy. He was last seen at Southeast Middle School at 6:30 a.m. Monday morning. Navarro’s family apparently believed he had been attending school regularly. But officials said the boy hadn’t attended school in the past three weeks.

Text messages spur school bus attack An exchange of text messages on a school bus apparently triggered an attack on a 17-year-old West Rowan High School student. The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office has filed a juvenile petition against a 15-year-old boy for assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a weapon on school grounds. Capt. John Sifford said the 17-year-old girl had received several text messages from someone she didn’t know. While on the school bus Monday afternoon, she replied to the messages, asking the sender to stop. Sifford said shortly thereafter, the 15-year-old came up behind her on the bus, slammed her head against the window and put a knife against her throat. Several people witnessed the incident but apparently didn’t see the knife concealed in the boy’s hand, Sifford said. The female student reported the incident to school officials, who contacted the Sheriff’s Office. Sifford said school officials immediately suspended the boy for 10 days and are considering a suspension for the remainder of the school year.

Those in attendance had the opportunity to speak one-on-one with representatives from the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency, Legal Aid North Carolina, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the North Carolina Housing Coalition and the state Commissioner of Banks. Those agencies were also general sponsors of the event along with Miller Davis, Fidelity Bank and the United Way of Rowan County. Steve Fisher, president of F&M Bank, told the audience that if someone other than a lender says to a homeowner they must pay to get out of foreclosure then it is a scam. “All of these are free services here tonight,” he said. Regina Greene, of the North Carolina Housing Coalition, provided information about how to report a scam.

“The real answer is inside these four walls with all of these agencies in this room,” Greene said. “You have people here to support you,” said Cynthia DuRant with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). She spoke about the Making Home Affordable Program, which provides temporary mortgage assistance to some unemployed homeowners. She also mentioned new laws and opportunities for homeowners that will begin in June. The new regulation will work so that once a homeowner asks for a loan modification, any foreclosure actions must be halted. In the past, lenders pursued foreclosures at the same time they were working with homeowners to make their loan payments more manageable. The presenting sponsors for the event were Salisbury Community Development Corp., F&M Bank, Quick Copy Shop, Food Lion, Salisbury Post and the city of Salisbury.

Tax issue with new mental health chief examined RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s health department is taking a second look at the hiring of a longtime advocate for the mentally ill because the previous organization he led is behind on federal payroll taxes. The Department of Health and Human Services said Thursday the agency is collecting more information about federal tax liens placed on the Mental Health Association in North Carolina,

which was run by John Tote until recently. Tote was named this week the next state mental health director. Records at the North Carolina Secretary of State’s office show federal liens of nearly $1.5 million since 2006. Tote and the association’s interim leader didn’t return calls seeking comment. Tote is supposed to report to work Monday, but it’s unclear whether that will happen.

Ways to cut back With the economy recovering slowing but steadily — but mostly slowly— many are still trying to figure out ways to tighten their belts a bit more. Tracking your expense to figure out your budget is the most obvious first step. The next is to identify and elimiTOI nate extras. DEGREE Use this list to identify the extras in your budget; then, decide which are worth keeping and which are just keeping you at work. Cable/ Satellite • Could you do away with cable or satellite entirely? • Scale back to the basic channels? • Switch from digital cable to regular cable? • Do you need a set-top box or hook up in every room? Phone Plans • Do you need caller ID and call waiting? • What about voice mail? • Do you need a landline and a cell phone? • Could you switch to a cheaper cell plan? • Get rid of text messaging or other features? Eating Out • Could you eat at home more often? • Pack your lunch, instead of buying? • Bring your coffee from home? • Pack snacks when you know you’ll be away from home for an extended period? • Bring drinks and snacks to work, instead of relying on the vending machines? Clothing • Could you set a clothing allowance or lower your existing allowance? • Shop second-hand? • Repair clothes, instead of replacing them? • Skip dry cleaning? Subscriptions and Memberships • Are there seldom read magazines that you could cancel? • Is your mail movie rental subscription a must? • Do you have a gym membership that you aren’t utilizing? • Could you cancel your membership to clubs that you no longer have time for? Entertainment • Could you rent movies instead of watching them at the theatre? • Go to matinees? • Go to free concerts and events, instead of paid events? • Borrow books and movies from the library, instead of buying them? • Listen to the radio instead of buying CDs or songs? • Find a cheaper hobby? • Scale back your vacations? Services • Could you cancel your lawn service? • Change your own oil? • Have your hair cut less often? • Do your own manicures and pedicures? • Skip the massage? The list above outlines many of the extras that can sabotage newly established budgets, yet with cutbacks there are relatively quick cost savings. However, the biggest savings often lie in the areas where you spend the most money: housing, transportation, food, insurance and health care. For more information on budgeting contact Toi N. Degree, Family and Consumer Education Agent, Rowan County Cooperative Extension Service 704-216-8970 or e-mail: toi_degree@ncsu.edu.

Officials vote to speed construction at N.C. airport MORRISVILLE (AP) — Officials at a North Carolina airport have voted to accelerate construction at one of its terminals so it can be open in time for the NHL All-Star Game. The Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority voted on Thursday to speed up construction of the second phase of Terminal 2 so it can be in operation for the all-star festivities, including the game on Jan. 30, 2011. The authority for RaleighDurham International Airport is working with Archer Western Contractors, Ltd. to open Terminal 2 on Jan. 23, 2011. The authority will incur some costs which will be reflected in a change to the construction contract. Once the building is turned over to the authority, RDU employees, tenants and other sub-contractors will complete the additional work needed to open and operate the terminal.

Agency examining mental health privatization RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s top health official is considering whether to outsource care of dozens of institutionalized mental patients to a private contractor. Health and Human Services Secretary Lanier Cansler says he’s looking at privatizing oversight of about 80 mental patients at Dorothea Dix Hospital. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday the patients are accused of crimes and are either awaiting trial or have been found not guilty by reason of insanity. Cansler says he doesn’t favor privatizing all mental health care but says the agency must keep looking for ways to save money during tight budget times. A spokeswoman for Gov. Beverly Perdue says the governor is open to the idea. Legislators who oversee mental health services say they are suspicious about privatization efforts.

people in the audience that board members had put her through a rigorous interview process and asked many difficult questions. Cain thanked Byerly for doing such a wonderful job during her time as superintendent and said she looked forward to continuing her fine work. Addressing the audience, she said, “I’m just thankful to be with you.” The new superintendent’s husband, architect Kent Gandee, was at the meeting along with Lucas, one of their two sons, who lives in Charlotte. Their other son, Brandon, lives in Richmond, Va. Cain said she is excited about being a part of Kannapolis. “I desire to be part of the community,” she said, “and I especially desire to see the faces of children.” Reading from a press release, Rickard said Cain has more than 20 years experience in education, serving at state, county and school levels. She has been an assistant state superintendent in West Virginia for the past 10 years.

School Board Association to handle the application process, according to Ellen Boyd, director of community relations for the school system. After Byerly announced her pending retirement in November, Boyd said board members set the middle of May as their target date for hiring a new superintendent. “I think May 20 is pretty close,” she said. Before starting the interview process, the board conducted a survey of staff, students, parents and the community to see what qualities they wanted in a new superintendent.

Under her leadership, a task force was organized to address curriculum weaknesses in mathematics, resulting in Wirt County receiving the most improved scores in West Virginia on its state achievement tests. Cain also has extensive experience in strategic planning at the state level. As chairperson for the State Parent Advisory Council, she facilitated the development of a threeyear strategic plan for parent, family and community engagement in low performing schools. Additionally, Cain served as supervisor for the Office of Healthy Schools and oversaw strategic planning for health and wellness in schools in partnership with the Department of Human Services and Bureau of Public Health. She has also focused on improving academic achievement for students living in or awaiting foster care and students in residential facilities and shelters by chairing the “Out of Home Care Task Force” for the state of West Virginia.

Michaels’ neurosurgeon said that while the Poison frontman has a “fantastic attitude” about making a full recovery, “Bret’s brain and body are not quite 100 percent yet, especially with the hole found in his heart.” Additional tests were being conducted to determine the best course of treatment. Doctors said Michaels is currently being treated with a daily injection of a blood thinner to reduce the risk of clots. His website said Michaels was “up, walking, talking, continuing his daily rehab and very happy to be alive.” “He has made it clear he is sick and tired of being in the hospital and is ready to rock again,” the site says. Michaels was expected to appear at Sunday’s finale of Donald Trump’s “The Celebrity Apprentice.” NBC said ot is “cautiously optimistic” he can attend.

Michaels’ publicist, Joann Mignano, confirmed the report. Michaels was hospitalized after experiencing numbness on the left side of his body, particularly in his face and hands.

whether charges could be filed against Barber. He passed those questions on to Rowan County Sheriff Kevin Auten. Auten said he had consulted with District Attorney Bill Kenerly and “he’s going to research it overnight ... and go from there.” He added, though, the Sheriff’s Office wasn’t called to Southeast Middle and “I’ve never heard of drunk and disruptive after the fact.” If any investigation is to be undertaken, Auten said, it might be handed over to the State Bureau of Investigation due to the working relationship between county commissioners and the Sheriff’s Office. Barber is serving his first term as a county commissioner. He got the most votes in the recent Republican primary for this year’s county board elections.

They told Ford the principal had removed Barber from the classroom because he appeared to be intoxicated. The parents who called Ford said their children sent them text messages describing the situation. “We will pray for Jon and hope for the best for him,” Ford said. “Hopefully, no one was put in harm’s way — I don’t think they were. We will be praying for Jon, that’s for sure.” Ford said Thursday afternoon he hadn’t talked with Barber and didn’t know whether the board of commissioners would take a position on the incident.

ors flying through the air.” Harkey knew the cyclist who was wearing orange and black, his team’s colors, was either his wife, Lori Harkey, or her twin sister, Lisa Preslar. “Those two girls,” he said, “that’s all I could think of.” Two months earlier, Harkey had delivered a eulogy at the funeral of Adam Little, his teammate and friend struck and killed on St. Patrick’s Day in Concord while riding his bike to work in Charlotte. As Harkey approached the scene at 7:20 p.m. Wednesday, he was afraid someone else he loved had died. “I was concerned that I was going to ride up there and find that someone had been killed,” he said. No one died in the collision. “It was a mess,” said Lee Wonnacott, who lives on St. Stephen’s Church Road. He asked his wife to call 911 after they heard screaming in front of their house. Bikes and bodies were strewn across his yard, Wonnacott said. The N.C. Highway Patrol charged Daniel Burton Wilson II, 21, of 325 Sand Road in Rockwell, with six counts of felony hit and run. Authorities say Wilson turned into the cyclists and struck six, dragging one underneath his Nissan Pathfinder. Wilson fled the scene but turned himself in at the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday night, Sgt. G.A. Barger said. A magistrate released Wilson on a written promise to appear in court Tuesday. He could face additional charges, Barger said. The Cabarrus County District Attorney’s Office is determining “if this guy was trying to intentionally run over the cyclists,” Barger said. The cyclist who Harkey saw flying through the air was his wife. She sustained a concussion and blows to the chest and abdomen. She was transferred to Carolinas Medical CenterNortheast in Concord, along with Tim Sigmon of Concord, Jack King of Mount Pleasant and Nathan Gray of Concord, an assistant principal at Mount Pleasant Elementary School. Nick Fishbein of Mooresville and Richard Hancock of Oakboro, who Chris Harkey said was the cyclist caught under the vehicle, were treated at the scene. Steve Merithew, a volunteer firefighter with the Gold Hill department, arrived soon after the collision. He lives a few houses away from the scene of the accident and said he helped assess and stabilize the victims. He was most concerned about victims going into shock, Merithew said, but no

Cyclists await rescue crews shortly after Wednesday’s accident. one did. Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office and EMS and the N.C. Highway Patrol responded as well. Wilson was driving north on St. Stephens Church Road just south of the Rowan County line between Kluttz and Sansbury roads, according to the Highway Patrol. The cyclists were traveling south, going downhill at about 30 mph, Harkey said. “For whatever reason, we don’t know why, he went left of center and hit the leaders of the group,” Barger said. “We don’t know if he was turning or what.” One cyclist went over the hood of the Pathfinder, one went under the car and several crashed into the vehicle, Barger said. “He stopped and drove off again with one rider under his car,” he said. Cyclists attempted to stop the car, and Wilson drove around them in the ditch, dislodging the cyclist from under the vehicle, Barger said. Chris Harkey said Hancock jumped out from under the vehicle and was not run over, but his bicycle was. Before the vehicle sped away, cyclists recorded the tag number, Harkey said. “What I could see was the vehicle starting to move,” he said. “I stopped in the road, used my bike to block the road and got my hands out, and he comes at me and swerves around me.” A motorist who saw the collision followed Wilson’s car and recorded the tag number as well. Authorities tracked the number to Wilson’s father, also named Daniel Wilson, of Stanley in Gaston County. The father confirmed that his son drives the

Pathfinder and gave authorities his exwife’s phone number to help track down his son, Barger said. Wilson’s mother, Cathy Sienerth of Concord, cooperated with authorities, Barger said. She and Wilson arrived at the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office, where Wilson turned himself in at 11:30 p.m. Authorities had no reason to think Wilson was impaired when he was arrested, about four hours after the collision, Barger said. Two victims, Sigmon and Gray, remain in the hospital. Sigmon suffered a deep laceration on his leg and internal injuries, Chris Harkey said. He has undergone one surgery and will have another. Gray will spend one more night in the hospital, Harkey said. King, who broke his collar bone, was released but will require surgery, he said. The group has enjoyed the Wednesday training ride for 15 years, Harkey said. The cyclists who were hit were riding single file on the white line, he said. But drivers are often impatient when they encounter cyclists on the road. “Please, just give us 10 seconds,” said Harkey, who was hit by a car in 1997. “There could have been some more deaths, very easily.” Six of the 18 cyclists Wednesday evening were from the Subaru-Gary Fisher team. After Adam Little’s death, another teammate was struck by a car in Huntersville and a third was seriously injured during a race in Boone, Harkey said. “There’s been a dark cloud over us since Adam,” he said.

gency Management Division. “Minor impact as we have heard it explained is there could be an occasional 6-inch tar ball that one could clean off one’s feet with soap.” “Is it a possibility? Yes. Is it likely? No. That’s what we’re hearing,” said Thom Berry, a spokesman for the state Department of Health and Environmental Control. There are a couple of things working in favor of the Carolinas. Much of the oil would be diluted in the weeks it could take to be pushed out of the Gulf. And the Gulf Stream would keep most of it off shore, 60 to 100 miles at sea, Berry said. If the oil did wash ashore, it would come at the busiest time for tourism along the Carolinas coast. The Coast Guard would take the lead in coordinating any clean up needed along the beaches. On Monday, Coast Guard officials will be in Columbia for a table-top planning exercise just in case. “We’re working to stay ahead of it,” Seneca said.

RALEIGH (AP) — House budget writers on Thursday started considering the Senate’s $19 billion budget plan, singling out some differences and announcing they would aim to cut an additional $200 million from public education. The Senate earlier in the day voted 30-16 to approve its version of the spending plan to run state government for the year starting July 1. House budget subcommittees got their marching orders from their superiors on the full appropriations panel on how much to cut and complete their work by the end of next week. The House wants to approve its full budget plan by June 4 — giving the two chambers about three weeks to work out a compromise to present to Gov. Beverly Perdue before July 1. Rep. Phil Haire, D-Jackson, a co-chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, said he believed the final negotiations will be easier based on what he’s seen in the Senate plan and what the House intends to roll out. “It’s much better than what we saw last year, so I think there’ll be less areas of discussion,” Haire said. “I think our priorities are really jobs and education.” But the House’s educa-

tion subcommittee was told to make spending reductions that are twice as deep than those in the Senate plan — $360 million in net cuts, or 3.3 percent, versus $159 million in the Senate’s budget plan. Rep. Rick Glazier, DCumberland, an education subcommittee co-chairman, said he believes the top budget writers are seeking more balance in proposed cuts across state government. Budget writers in the House health and human services subcommittee were told they didn’t have to cut any deeper, keeping to the steep 9 percent reduction that the Senate budget took in that department. “My sense is the House leadership may feel those cuts are a little deeper than they would have liked,”

Glazier said. It wasn’t immediately clear where the additional education cuts would originate, but House Democrats already have made plain they’ll restore dropout prevention grants, setting up a clear difference during negotiations. The Senate budget took away $13 million and discontinued the program — a favorite of Speaker Joe Hackney and other House members. “This is the Senate’s bargaining chip,” said Rep. Ray Rapp, D-Madison, co-chairman of education subcommittee. Hackney spokesman Bill Holmes said spending targets for prisons, probation and the courts were slightly less than the Senate budget approved. “It’s early on in the process,” Holmes

said. House tax-law writers are likely to examine carefully a Senate provision that would reduce the highest marginal income tax rate for small and family owned businesses from 7.75 percent to 6.9 percent. Senate leaders said the effort, which would reduce tax revenues by almost $40 million next year, was a small step in leveling the tax burden between mom-and-pop business and corporations. The House is considering proposals that reward small businesses that create jobs. “We’re concerned about job creation for small businesses,” said Rep. Paul Luebke, D-Durham, senior cochairman of the House Finance Committee. “The Senate’s proposal is not linked to job creation.”

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Chances are remote that oil from a leaking well in the Gulf of Mexico could make it to the beaches of the Carolinas and it would likely be weeks from now if it did, emergency officials said Thursday. “We think there will be a minimal impact, if any,” said Ricky Platt, director of the South Carolina Emergency Management Division. “But having said that, we’re still in the unknown.” The worry is that the loop current in Gulf of Mexico will pull the leaking oil around the Florida peninsula and then north toward the Carolinas. “What we’re hearing from the Coast Guard is that there is less than a 1 percent chance it could get this far,” said Eddie Seneca, the spokesman for the North Carolina Department of Crime Control and Public Safety. On Wednesday, Clinch Heyward and Ben Gregg, chairman and executive director respectively of the South Carolina Wildlife Federation, wrote the Coast Guard and the state Department of Health and Environmental Control asking about contingency plans if oil does tar the shoreline. “No one can say with any certainty if this will happen or what the potential impacts on our region might be,” the letter said. “But since as of this date the oil continues to flow into the Gulf, and we are told it may be several months before it is shut off, the possibility of its getting to our shores is becoming more and more likely.” Both states have plans in place to deal with oil spills and officials in each state are in daily contact with their counterparts in the Gulf. “If it does come here they think it will have a minor impact on our beaches,” said Joe Farmer, a spokesman for the South Carolina Emer-

Lawmakers close to tightening reins on Wall Street

WASHINGTON (AP) — Dennis Blair, President Obama’s national intelligence director, is resigning after a 16-month tenure marked by turf wars among the spy agencies. Blair, a retired admiral, is the third director of national intelligence, a position created in response to the failure to prevent the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Blair intends to offer his resignation today, one of the two officials said, adding that several candidates have been interviewed for the job. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not yet been made. His oversight of the nation’s 16 intelligence agencies was marked by turf battles with the CIA director and controversial public comments in the wake of the abortive Christmas Day jetliner bombing. CIA Director Leon Panetta and Blair squared off in May over Blair’s effort to choose a personal representative at U.S. embassies to be his eyes and ears abroad, instead of relying on CIA station chiefs, as had been past practice.

Calderon says immigration reform critical to a secure Mexico border WASHINGTON (AP) — Mexican President Felipe Calderon took his opposition to a new Arizona immigration law to Congress, saying it “ignores a reality that cannot be erased by decree.” Calderon’s comments on the Arizona law and his request that Congress do something about the availability of high-powered weapons along the border drew criticism from several lawmakers saying he was interfering in U.S. internal matters. The Mexican leader also told lawmakers reluctant to take up the immigration issue this year that comprehensive immigration reform is crucial to securing the two countries’ common border. Calderon, the first foreign national leader to address Congress this year, said he strongly disagrees with the Arizona law that requires police to question people about their immigration status if there’s reason to suspect they are in the country illegally. “It is a law that not only ignores a reality that cannot be erased by decree but also introduces a terrible idea using racial profiling as a basis for law enforcement,” he said to cheers, mainly from the Democratic side of the chamber.

Broken alarm helps thieves snag $123 million in Paris museum art PARIS (AP) — A broken alarm system made it as easy as 1-2-3: A masked intruder clipped a padlock, smashed a window and stole a Picasso, a Matisse and three other masterpieces from a Paris museum — a $123 million haul that is one of the biggest art heists ever. Offloading the artwork may prove a tougher task, however, with Interpol and collectors worldwide now on high alert. The alarm system had been broken since March in parts of the Paris Museum of Modern Art, according to the city’s mayor, Bertrand Delanoe. The museum reopened in 2006 after spending $18 million and two years upgrading its security system. A lone masked intruder entered the museum about 3:50 a.m., his movements caught on one of the museum’s functioning cameras, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office.

Scientists make synthetic cell using manmade DNA WASHINGTON (AP) — Scientists announced a bold step in the enduring quest to create artificial life. They’ve produced a living cell powered by manmade DNA. While such work can invoke images of Frankenstein-like scientific tinkering, it also is exciting hopes that it could eventually lead to new fuels, better ways to clean polluted water, faster vaccine production and more. The inventors call it the world’s first synthetic cell, although this initial step is more a re-creation of existing life — changing one simple type of bacterium into another — than a built-from-scratch kind. Maryland genome-mapping pioneer J. Craig Venter said his team’s project paves the way for designing organisms that work differently from the way nature intended them. Already he’s working with ExxonMobil in hopes of turning algae into fuel.

Rand Paul’s comments stir up controversy focusing on race WASHINGTON (AP) — A tea party conservative on a national stage, Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul of Kentucky labored to explain remarks suggesting businesses be allowed to deny service to blacks without fear of federal interference, declaring, “I abhor racial discrimination.” In a written statement, Paul said, “I believe we should work to end all racism in American society and staunchly defend the inherent rights of every person.” But he did not repudiate controversial comments about the 1964 Civil Rights Act that he made in a newspaper interview last month and then elaborated on during broadcast appearances Wednesday. The issue arose little more than 24 hours after the political novice swept to a landslide Republican primary victory.

BP spokesman Mark Proegler told the Associated Press that the mile-long tube inserted into the leaking well pipe over the weekend is capturing 210,000 gallons of oil a day — the total amount the company and the Coast Guard had estimated was gushing into the sea — but that some is still escaping. He did not say how much. The Environmental Protection Agency also directed BP to employ a less toxic form of the chemical dispersants it has been using. BP is marshaling equipment for an attempt to pump heavy mud into the top of the blown-out well to try to plug the gusher. It has been used before above ground, but like other methods BP is exploring, it has never been attempted 5,000 feet underwater.

ment of BP’s inattention to the scope and size of the greatest environmental catastrophe in the history of the United States,” said Rep. Edward J. Markey, D-Mass. At least 6 million gallons have gushed into the Gulf — more than half the amount the Exxon Valdez tanker spilled in Alaska in 1989 — since the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform exploded 50 miles off the coast April 20. Eleven workers were killed. The slow-motion disaster could become far wider. Government scientists said a small portion of the slick had entered the so-called loop current, a stream of fast-moving water that could carry the mess into the Florida Keys and up the state’s Atlantic Coast, damaging coral reefs and fouling beaches.

A formal hearing will be held later to determine if the star is in compliance with the court’s conditions. No court date has been set. Lohan has been on probation since August 2007 after pleading guilty to misdemeanor drug charges and no contest to three driving charges. The plea came after a pair of high-profile arrests earlier that year. Lohan has struggled repeatedly with the terms of her sentence. In October, a judge extended her probation for another year, and a prosecutor warned the actress she faced jail time if she violated her probation.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — A judge issued a warrant Thursday for Lindsay Lohan’s arrest after the actress missed a mandatory court hearing, but a court spokesman said the warrant was recalled hours later after her bond was posted. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel issued the warrant after the 23-year-old actress missed a progress report on her probation stemming from two arrests in 2007. A $100,000 bond was ordered as the judge sought to make sure Lohan shows up for her next court date. Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini confirmed that the warrant was recalled. Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, said Lohan’s passport was stolen while attending the Cannes Film Festival in France and she was unable to return to Los Angeles in time for the hearing. She was photographed partying on a yacht in the French Riviera until the wee hours, said celebrity photographer Phil Ramey, who posted the photos on his website. Revel said the star had a history of missing scheduled appointments. “If she wanted to be here, it looks to the court that she could have been here,” Revel said. The judge then revoked Lohan’s probation, issued the

GRAND ISLE, La. (AP) — The spectacle many had feared for a month finally began unfolding as gooey, rust-colored oil washed into the marshes at the mouth of the Mississippi for the first time, stoking public anger and frustration with both BP and the government. The sense of gloom deepened as BP conceded what some scientists have been saying for weeks: the oil leak at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico is bigger than the company previously estimated. Up to now, only tar balls and a sheen of oil had come ashore. But now, chocolate brown and vivid orange globs, sheets and ribbons of foul-smelling oil the consistency of latex paint has begun coating the reeds and grasses of Louisiana’s wetlands, home to rare birds, mammals and a rich variety of marine life. There were no immediate reports of any mass dieoffs of wildlife or large numbers of creatures wriggling in oil, as seen after the Exxon Valdez disaster, but that was the fear. Billy Nungesser, president of Louisiana’s Plaquemines Parish, toured the oilfouled marshes and said: “Had you fallen off that boat yesterday and come up breathing that stuff, you probably wouldn’t be here.” A live video feed of the underwater gusher, posted online Thursday after lawmakers exerted pressure on BP, is sure to fuel the anger. It shows what appears to be a large plume of oil and gas still spewing into the water next to the stopperand-tube combination that BP inserted to carry some of the crude to the surface. The House committee website where the video was posted promptly crashed because so many people were trying to view it. “These videos stand as a scalding, blistering indict-

WASHINGTON (AP) — Barely breaking a logjam, the Senate voted Thursday to end debate on a massive financial regulation bill, clearing the way for final passage of the most ambitious effort to write rules for Wall Street since the Great Depression. The vote was 60-40 to advance the legislation, which has become a top priority for President Barack Obama in the aftermath of his successful health care overhaul in March. The president heralded Thursday’s vote, saying Wall Street efforts to undermine the legislation had failed. “Our goal is not to punish the banks,” he said, “but to protect the larger economy and the American people from the kind of upheavals that we’ve seen in the past few years. Today’s action was a major step forward in achieving that goal.” The bill calls for new ways to watch for risks in the financial system and makes it easier to liquidate large failing financial firms. It also writes new rules for complex securities blamed for helping precipitate the 2008 economic crisis, and it creates a new consumer protection agency.

ydrangeas are just beginning to add color to landscapes throughout the county. These shrubs have always been a favorite and are now becoming more popular with the newer hybrids. At last count, there were more than 100 different varieties, including vine types, dwarf container DARRELL type plants, BLACKWELDER oak leafed varieties, redstemmed hydrangeas and hydrangeas with pure white blooms. There are literally hundreds of cultivars, but hydrangeas are usually placed in three basic categories: • Hydrangea macrophylla, also called bigleaf, mop head or French hydrangea; • Oakleaf hydrangea, Hydrangea quercifolia; • Peegee hydrangea, Hydrangea paniculata. The most popular hydrangea in Rowan County is the bigleaf hydrangea, Hydrangea macrophylla. This is an older cultivar usually pink or blue, depending on soil pH. Soil pH affects

summer, paniculata blooms develop a pink shade as the blooms age, extending their beauty into the fall. A desirable trait of all paniculatas is their tolerance for pruning. One can prune them at any time except when they begin forming bloom heads in the summer. Paniculatas often get very large, but the best known Hydrangea paniculata is PeeGee.

Unsightly rust plagues apples and cedar BY DARRELL BLACKWELDER

he weather now dominates most conversations throughout the county. Rainy, cold, hot and muggy, all the extremes seemingly occurring within the same week. Plants are hardy and luckily adapt sometimes better than man, but these extremes do cause problems, mostly with insects and fungal diseases. The most interesting disease exacerbated by the weather over the past few weeks is cedar apple rust. It’s a disease that is reported by many people on cedar trees throughout the county. The disease is easily recognized by the orange, spaghetti-like growths on eastern red cedar trees. About the size of a golf ball or larger, these slimy balls, harbingers of a fungal disease on apples, coat many of the evergreens locally. The balls have been rather gooey and stringy over the past few days be-

Some trees may have just a few, one or two balls, while other trees may have dozens of the orange masses. Red cedars trees are alternate hosts for the fungal disease which causes rust on apples; however, it is the same disease. The fungal disease must have both red

cedars and apple trees in the same vicinity to complete the diseases’ life cycle. Without both trees, the disease would not exist. Cedar apple rust on apples and crabapple trees are very common. Soon after the trees leaf out, yellow-orange spots will appear on the apple tree leaves. Extreme infections may cause

One method of disease control would be to eliminate one of the hosts, all the red cedar trees within a half mile of the orchard. Apple producing counties in the mountains will do this as

one approach to controlling the disease. Obviously for a home orchardist with a few apple trees, it’s an impractical application. Another solution is to apply fungicides from early in the spring before bloom. At this point, it’s too late to apply fungicides to control the disease. Many cultivars are very susceptible to the disease. Rome Beauty, Gala, Mutsu (Crispin) and Jonagold are most susceptible to cedar apple rust in our area. Yellow Delicious is an apple variety not susceptible to cedar apple rust. Most trees contracting the aliment survive. The tree leaves will be unsightly and the fruit not as sweet as normal.

Whether it’s a simple arrangement that will grace your dining table yearround or a more elaborate display for a special dinner party, creating a memorable centerpiece is fun and easy. I asked Nell Hill’s visual team members Becky and Marsee to show us how. Before I even start on the centerpiece, I always set the table first so I know exactly how much space I have left over for the centerpiece. In the past, I used to create the centerpiece first, but on more than a few occasions, I got so carried away there was no room left on the table for the plates. I’ve learned my lesson, and now I get the essentials in place first. Then, every inch left over is fair game! Becky and Marsee went with a decidedly summer look for the table. Instead of using a heavy tablecloth, they let the cool, clear tabletop show through. In the summer I also like to use about a yard and a half of fabric, either hemmed or folded under and pressed, as a table topper. The visual team started each place setting on a simple wicker tray. Then they layered it up with the blueand-white Spode transferware I got at market for a steal. They added simple clear glass goblets and white linen napkins to round out the look. With this beautiful base, they’re ready to finish off the table with a wonderful centerpiece. The beauty of centerpieces is that they can be as simple or elaborate as you want, depending upon your time and tastes and the occasion. Today, we offer two treatments — one that’s stylish in its pure simplicity, the other a bit more elaborate and sophisticated. Start your streamlined centerpiece with an interesting container of some kind. Becky and Marsee chose an antique wooden dough bowl. I decorate a lot with wooden dough bowls because they add rustic texture to dining-table displays — I love them paired with fine china and silver. They are also incredibly versatile tools you can use over and again in seasonal decorating. They look wonderful filled with seasonal foliage, sitting at a table’s center, on a buffet, above an armoire or on a ledge. Instead of a wooden dough bowl, you could also use an English footbath, cachepot, basket or antique wooden box. Next, fill the container with something fun, interesting or colorful. Marsee is fitting our wooden dough bowl with several faux potted ferns. These little guys are one of my favorite accents to use in summer decorating. But you could also use moss balls, wicker balls, green apples, forced bulbs — you name it. If you want a fast and easy centerpiece that looks lovely, you’re done! This simple arrangement is perfect for a casual dinner party or as a standing display you can leave up year-round. To create a centerpiece that’s a bit more elegant and elaborate, start by picking out a few statement pieces that will serve as the base of your display. You’ll want pieces with some heft and intrigue. For our sample centerpiece, Marsee and Becky selected blue-and-white Asian ginger jars to complement the dishes in our place setting. These ginger jars are one of my go-to decorating tools right now because they are a steal (just $22 each!) and can be used in a million ways in your home. For our third statement piece, the team added a wonderful china jar.

Wounded boyfriend needs to talk about one-time infidelity

In credit scores, close is good enough Home Grown using at any given time. If you charge a $5,000 diamond ring to an account today and pay it off in full before the grace period is over, you might think you don’t have an outstanding balance, but the credit-scoring machine sees an outstanding balance the moment you make the charge. The people at FICO, the company that started all this credit scoring business in the first place, say that to maintain an excellent score, you never should be using more than 30 percent of your available credit on an individual account or 30 percent of your collective available credit, even if you pay the balance to $0 within your grace period. Dear Mary: I once used a simple cleaner for burned-on food on my stainless steel griddle. It was a solution that you recommended some time ago, and it had the best results. Now I can’t find it. Do you by any chance have the remedy for it? — Rita, e-mail Dear Rita: You are taxing my memory, for sure. I have several remedies, depending on the severity of the situation, so I don’t know which you used before. For a really icky burned-on mess in a casserole or a stovetop pan, fill the vessel with hot water and drop in a dryer sheet. If you leave it

overnight, all of the gunk will release and slide out in the morning. As for your griddle, I would use original blue Dawn fullstrength dishwashing liquid on a sponge plus a sprinkling of borax (or baking soda, for a less severe situation). Add a little elbow grease and that stainless steel will be as shiny and clean as it was when it was new.

Organizing your life for homeownership BY SARAH WELCH AND ALICIA ROCKMORE getbuttonedup.com

Congratulations! You’ve finally found the one. Tall, dark, handsome ... no, wait a minute. This one is more of the white-picket-fence-andfoyer variety — a house, and it’s yours! No more virtual tours, open houses and calls from your real-estate agent proclaiming “I’ve found it!” You have now joined the ranks of proud homeowners across the country. Pop the cork, cross the threshold and take a seat on your new couch. You might need a seat when the excitement wears off and you realize that this is (gulp) the biggest purchase you have ever made. But don’t panic yet. With a little preparation and guidance, you can navigate the world of the new homeowner with sanity and savings intact. Sarah on “It’s All About the Maintenance”: Owning your own home is a dream come true, but it’s easy for things to escalate into a financial and emotional nightmare if you don’t take care of them. The key to keeping your home running in top condition is by staying on top of things. Don’t wait to fix the leaky bathroom pipes, because you’ll regret it when your dining room is flooded. Little things can turn bad quickly, so fix it in the first place and you’ll save yourself some grief (and cash) down the road. Alicia on “Budgeting for the Inevitable”: You’ve already secured a mortgage, so kudos to you for being smart with your fi-

nances. While you are still in financial-planning mode, figure out what it costs to run the house and include everything, from your mortgage payment and insurance to heat, power and water bills. After you know what it takes to keep your house running, put away a little extra for those unforeseen costs. You won’t always need it, but when the air-conditioning unit breaks during a sweltering summer or the roof starts leaking, you’ll be glad you skipped the movies and contributed to your emergency fund.

Two ways to tackle maintenance mania

1. Show your home some love. Each quarter, schedule a few hours or an entire day to handle all of the little maintenance tasks that add up over time — things like swapping out the filters, cleaning the dryer lint vent and changing smoke- and carbonmonoxide-detector batteries. As you go around completing your checklist, make note of any large or small repairs that will need to be added to the list. 2. Let the seasons guide you. It’s hard to remember everything that needs to be done. But everyone has heard of spring cleaning, right? It’s really a great way to think about your home, since each season comes with a different set of needs. In the fall, leaves need to be raked and removed from gutters, while winter ushers in a season of indoor projects. Spring is a perfect time for planting, while summer months tend to involve outdoor projects like lawn

trimming and fertilizing.

Dear Mary: My husband and I paid off our home mortgage and bought a lake cabin. We have no outstanding debt. We share one major credit card and a store credit card. We never carry balances on those accounts. However, when we completed the paperwork to apply for a loan for the cabin, we were given a credit score of 813 out of a possible 950 with a note about outstanding balances on open accounts. We do NOT have any outstanding balances on loans or credit cards. MARY Can you help HUNT explain the meaning of this factor in our credit score? — R&B, e-mail Dear R&B: Your credit score is so great it’s ridiculous! I’m sure you qualified for the best rate your lender has to offer, so you can relax. As for that explanation you got for why your scores are not perfect, credit scoring doesn’t care that you pay your balances in full during the grace period each month. Credit-scoring computers constantly are taking snapshots of how much credit you are

Both men and women attend, and many are over 50. Instead of seeing myself as a victim, I chose to turn my challenge into an opportunity, and I started The Unemployed Optimists. We share job search-related information, start our own businesses, go to school for retraining and share tips on how to have fun on a budget during our transition. I often get speakers who critique resumes, offer interview tips and teach how to use social media in their job search.

Being intimate with someone means you have to be brave enough to bare the unsettled, upsetting or disappointing aspects of your true feelings. You say, “I’ve learned this about you, and though it happened a long time ago, I’m devastated and need to talk about it.” You don’t have to end your relationship over this (though depending on how she reacts, you might choose to). Your relationship will be affected by this encounter, however. If you two weather this rough patch and manage to behave lovingly and respectfully through it and afterward, the intimacy you gain will bring you closer. Dear Amy: I was moved to respond to a letter from “Name Withheld” about surviving the choppy waters of unemployment. She wrote that, “Support groups for men who have lost their jobs abound, while those for women in the same situation are nonexistent.” In your response, you

that she actually wound up sleeping with her ex that night. I feel used and neglected all over again. I have absolutely no reason to believe she has ever been unfaithful since, and I truly believe she loves me. But, Amy, if I had found this out that day, or even shortly after, I would have ended the relationship. Now I am burdened with these confusing feelings of sadness and anger, and I am afraid it is going to affect our relationship. I know I have a right to be angry, but how can I rationalize ending a relationship, or even bringing this up, when it happened so long ago and things have been great since then? She doesn’t know I know. She is happy, and until I found out, I was happy, too. What should I do? — Keeping Up Appearances Dear Keeping Up: You might think that intimacy is defined by being in love, living with and sleeping together.

Dear Amy: Is there a statute of limitations on infidelity? Before I met my girlfriend, she was in a threeyear relationship with her previous boyfriend. About six months into our relationship, she broke a date with me because her ex-boyfriend contacted her, saying that he was leaving town for good and that he needed to see ASK her one last AMY time. She agreed, despite my opposition, and I went home alone that night as she went off to have coffee with him. I was rather upset. We talked about it at length, and she apologized for hurting me.

NEW PROBLEMS FOR BARBER

A sad turn of events W

hen County Commissioner Jon Barber was charged with driving while impaired two years ago, then-Commission Chairman Arnold Chamberlain asked if there was anything he could do to help. “Pray,” Barber said. Now, it appears more prayers are in order following the stunning news that Barber, a teacher at Southeast Middle School, was removed from his classroom Wednesday because of suspicions he was intoxicated and subsequently resigned from the school system. Prayers not only for Barber and his family but for the county’s governance. While his resignation from the school system ends speculation about the propriety of his continuing to teach young children, there’s no corresponding clarity regarding his position as a sitting commissioner and candidate for re-election. For now, at least, Barber has said he does not intend to step down from the board. Presumably, that means he also plans to remain as a candidate in November. That’s a questionable decision, both for Barber and the board. At this point, we don’t have all the facts about Wednesday’s episode. Barber, who has cited a diabetic condition as a factor in the 2008 incident, didn’t want to discuss the details with a reporter. School officials say it’s a personnel issue. And at this point, Barber faces no criminal charges, so there’s no police report to offer even a bare-bones narrative of what occurred. We’re left with student texts, second-hand accounts and a blizzard of rumors. If Barber were not a public official, the matter might end where it is, leaving him to deal with the issue amid the peace and privacy of family and friends. He would owe no further explanation, nor would the public be entitled to one. But Barber sought and attained an important elected office. He presented himself to voters as someone suitable for a position of leadership — someone who could be trusted to exercise sound judgment, act with integrity and uphold the public trust. Public officials aren’t simply citizens with an extra title and a few additional perks. They are citizens who have special responsibilities — and while no one expects them to be perfect, they are held to a standard that should extend beyond mere legality to a higher level of judgment, responsibility and self-control. If this episode had occurred before the primary, would Barber have been the top GOP vote-getter? We’ll never know, but it strains credulity to suggest it wouldn’t have changed some ballots. It’s always dangerous to leap to conclusions. Yet in this case, Barber’s abrupt resignation with minimal explanation, combined with his prior DWI conviction, casts a heavy cloud over his continued tenure in office. It doesn’t rise to the level of an offense that would trigger his removal, but it does raise serious questions about his ability to represent Rowan County and conduct the people’s business.

End offshore drilling? Need for fuel outweighs environmental risk BY AND

JOEL MATHIS BEN BOYCHUK

RedBlueAmerica.com

T

he devastation from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill widened this week, as the federal government put up to 19 percent of the gulf offlimits to fishing — and experts warned that the plume of oil could spread up the East Coast. The incident has prompted renewed debate about the safety and wisdom of oil production in environmentally sensitive areas. Should that production continue? Or is it time to shut down the oil rigs and fire up the solar panels? Joel Mathis and Ben Boychuk, the RedBlueAmerica columnists, have an energetic discussion.

It would be nice

JOEL MATHIS: It would be nice if we could unilaterally end offshore oil drilling. Nobody likes to see the oily bird carcasses washing up on beaches, nor the plaintive looks in the eyes of suddenly idled Louisiana fishermen. The widespread damage being done right now in the Gulf of Mexico should be intolerable. But we will tolerate it. We have to. America’s energy demands are simply too great to give it up — our politicians are not going to ask us to sacrifice our comfortable lifestyles; we won’t let them in any case — and the country isn’t anywhere close to ready to switch over to “alternative” energy sources like wind and solar to pick up the slack. If some environmentalists are ready to declare a moratorium without ready alternatives, however, drilling enthusiasts can be much too cavalier about the safety of offshore

drilling. Large-scale energy production of any sort is almost always a complicated and dangerous proposition, whether at Chernobyl or in the Atlantic Ocean. Disasters — the devastation of whole swaths of the planet — are inevitable. So regulations on drilling should be tight, and rigorously enforced. That hasn’t been the case. The New York Times reported that the federal government gave permission to dozens of oil companies — including BP — to drill offshore even though they hadn’t completed “required” environmental reviews. That’s inexcusable. We rely on oil energy because, for now, we have to. However, that’s no reason to let the oil companies essentially regulate themselves. Getting rigorous about the rules and their enforcement will probably make energy a little more expensive for all of us, but the cost will be necessary. Our own ability to survive on the planet depends upon it.

It would be foolish

BEN BOYCHUK: We make the policies, we pay the price. Why do oil companies drill in deep water, where the risks of a BP-like rupture are higher? Because shallow water is off-limits. A massive oil spill off the coast of Santa Barbara, California in 1969 led to a moratorium on new drilling near the U.S. coastline to avert similar disasters. In the minds of some legislators and policymakers, nothing has changed in more than 40 years. Why hasn’t the United States built a new commercial nuclear power plant in more than 30 years? Because in 1979, a partial meltdown at Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania led

LETTERS Confederacy of fools to blame for Obama This forwarded e-mail offers the most intelligent analysis yet! Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do. “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. “The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. “The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” — John Walls Salisbury

to the release of toxic radioactive gasses, and the evacuation of 140,000 people from nearby communities. Nobody died, but the response by the plant’s owners was halting and at times inept. As a result, the raft of new regulations and negative public opinion set the country’s nuclear power development back a generation. In the minds of some legislators and policymakers, nothing has changed in more than 30 years. Why hasn’t a “green economy” blossomed more quickly in the United States? Because even though the costs and risks of oil, coal and nuclear power may seem high, the costs and risks of wind, solar, geothermal and other renewable power sources are in many respects higher still. No, a wind turbine isn’t suddenly going to spew toxic gas. But for optimal output, we might need to build thousands of turbines and millions of miles of new transmission lines in environmentally sensitive, relatively pristine parts of the country. We could cover the landscape with solar panels and wind turbines, but we wouldn’t be able to meet our current power needs. Besides, only a very small percentage of the oil the United States imports goes toward generating electricity. Most of it goes into our gas tanks. To the extent we can find cleaner, more efficient alternatives, great. But we’re very much a petroleum-based economy, and we’ll remain so for a long time. As long as that’s true, we’ll need to keep drilling. • • • Ben Boychuk and Joel Mathis blog and podcast every week at www.freedompub.org and joelmathis.blogspot.com.

Mr. Sides that he was sorry that Mrs. Hall didn’t have more support and that Mr. Barber received the majority of the votes and now Mrs. Hall’s issue with Mr.Coltrain’s “Hatch Act” involvement. What is the issue with these two people? Do they actually think they are the only people that can run the county? Well they both are wrong! I thought as a county commissioner you actually worked for the people that voted you into office and did their wishes and not try to keep trouble stirred up in the county. I have not seen them do anything more outstanding than you or I could do if we had been elected. I know I wouldn’t keep trouble brewing constantly. Maybe that is politics and I am glad I have nothing to do with it in that respect. Mr. Sides, as a “true conservative” and the Christian candidate, how can you sleep at night? In that book that you read daily (Bible), as I do, doesn’t it state somewhere to hold you tongue, love one another and set your mind on things above? Maybe you need to read it more closely. Mrs. Hall, you placed third in the primary. Why hold a

runoff? I know! Fewer people will vote, and I can win! Hello! Your antics as commissioner have led me to believe you would do anything to get your way. I pray that you and Mr. Sides lose so we can have commissioners that care about Rowan County and not their own political careers. A vote for these two is a vote for the same problems we have had in the past and it will not stop until they both are running the show. — Mike Trexler Salisbury

True public servant I was on my way to Salisbury last Friday night when I had a flat tire. I was sitting alongside the road when a police car drove up behind me. It was Officer Nicholas O’Brien on his way to work in China Grove. In 90-degree weather, he changed my tire for me. I want everyone to know that we do have some really nice officers in China Grove. Thank you very much, Officer O’Brien. — Pat Tyson China Grove

ALEIGH — One lesson learned from the recent election primaries: In a lot of places, voters have pretty good sense after all. In six separate counties in North Carolina, people with previous criminal convictions decided that seeking the job of county sheriff was a good idea; in all six counties, voters didn’t agree. SCOTT The best MOONEYHAM known of the defeated candidates is former Davidson County Sheriff Gerald Hege. A few years back, Hege became a national sensation and media darling because of his striking approach to crime fighting. He painted jail cells pink. He dressed prison road crews in oldfashioned black-and-white striped uniforms. He drove around in a tricked-out, seized car that locals dubbed the bat mobile. Then, in 2004, after allegations that he misused public property, Hege pleaded guilty to two felony counts of obstruction of justice. His plea deal kept him out of prison, but the charismatic Hege lost his job. Six years later, Hege hoped voters were ready to forgive and forget. They weren’t. He got pasted at the ballot box. Hege received just 24 percent of the vote in losing to incumbent Davidson County Sheriff David Grice. The story was pretty much the same around the state. Other losing sheriff candidates with criminal convictions were Robert “Nub” Taylor in Avery County, David Morrow in Cleveland County, one-time sheriff Stanley James in Washington County, Willie Tharpe in Wilkes County and Mark Stewart in McDowell County. Only one of the six, James, received more than 30 percent of the vote. Despite the sound defeats, the unwillingness of those with criminal pasts to exhibit a little shame and discretion has other sheriffs and some state legislators worried. The North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association and some legislators would like to see passage of legislation intended to prohibit convicted felons from holding the office of county sheriff. A bill sponsored by Republican Sen. Stan Bingham of Davidson County would put the issue before state voters. The worry is that voters, in every case, may not show such good judgment. If not, if a convicted felon won a sheriff’s race, some odd circumstances would arise. Convicted felons can’t carry firearms. Hege, prior to the primary, argued that sheriffs don’t need to carry guns. Maybe, but they would still be making decision about guns — their purchase, their storage, administration of gun permits and any number of other gun-related issues. Eddie Caldwell of the N.C. Sheriffs Association also points out that state regulations bar felons from being hired as deputy sheriffs or other sworn law enforcement officers. So, it’s OK for the top law enforcement officer in the county to have a criminal conviction but not those whom he directs? Some people have argued that the regulations do apply to both deputies and their sheriff bosses. Those arguments, though, are just one more indication of the legal wrangling and general havoc that might ensue if a convicted felon won a sheriff’s election. Allowing the state’s voters, as a whole, to put the issue to rest would be a better alternative. • • • Scott Mooneyham writes columns for Capitol Press Association.

Dow’s 376-point drop biggest in more than a year NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks took their deepest plunge in more than a year Thursday as fears grew that Europe’s debt crisis could spread around the world and undermine the U.S. economic recovery. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 376 points, its biggest point drop since February 2009. All the major indexes were down well over 3 percent and are now showing losses for 2010. Interest rates fell sharply in the Treasury market as investors once again sought the safety of U.S. government debt. The number of people applying for unemployment benefits last week rose unexpectedly and the Greek government’s response to its debt crisis sparked new protests in Athens, but analysts said neither event appeared to set off Thursday’s selling. They said more investors seemed to be grasping the possibility that the U.S. recovery could be in jeopardy, and

that many were realizing that the stock market’s big rebound since March 2009 may not have been justified. “The economic recovery story has started to look like a mirage,” said Tom Samuels, manager of the Palantir Fund in Houston. “If that’s correct, stock prices are well ahead of economic reality.” Some also are worried China might take steps that will limit its economic growth, which would also affect the U.S. recovery. The Chicago Board Options Exchange’s Volatility Index — known as the market’s fear gauge — leaped almost 30 percent to its highest level since March 2009.

SALISBURY POST

GRANITE QUARRY — Since the first pitch of 2006, East Rowan coach Brian Hightower’s record is 117-29. That means the Mustangs have won four out of five for five years, but Hightower still doesn’t sleep well once the calendar turns to May. His latest team is 25-2 and ranked near the top of every poll, but he’s antsy about his 3A third-round home game tonight at 7 p.m. against Mount Pleasant (17-10). “Yeah, we’re pretty good,” he said. “But that doesn’t stop me from worrying like crazy.” East’s team batting average is .358, the ERA is 1.71 and the defense is serious. Hightower loves his team,

but the playoffs are oneand-done. One hot pitcher or one missed call and it could be all over. T h a t HOLMES t h o u g h t s c a r e s Hightower because he may never coach a third baseman as good as Noah Holmes again or have another shortstop with Preston Troutman’s arm. Hightower also worries about his ace — right-hander Thomas Allen (8-1). Mount Pleasant’s all right-handed lineup looks like an ideal matchup, but Allen is dealing with a strained forearm.

ASHEBORO — Rowan C o u n t y Randolph 8 won’t go Rowan 7 undefeated. Shorthanded Rowan opened the American Legion season with an 8-7 loss to Randolph County on Thursday night. Randolph, which suited up only 10 players, scored three runs in the eighth for a comefrom-behind victory. As the host of this summer’s state tournament, Randolph’s historic home at McCrary Park has undergone a serious facelift that includes a synthetic infield. Down the road, both perennial powers also will have a much different look. Two schools that feed Randolph hadn’t finished the prep playoffs, and Rowan will get a complete makeover once players from East (25-2) arrive.

Last night was a chance for players from West, North and Salisbury to make an impression, and some did. “Everybody looked a little apprehensive early, but then we settled in and did OK,” Rowan coach Jim Gantt said. Rowan spotted the home team a 5-1 lead after four innings. Belmont Abbey’s Forrest Buchanan, one of last summer’s heroes, allowed four runs in three innings but pitched better than it sounds. Buchanan was followed to the mound by 2009 East graduates Cody Laws and Alex Litaker. They gave Rowan a chance to come back. Trailing 5-2 entering the seventh, Rowan erupted for five runs. Zack Simpson, Chandler Jones and Matt Laurens had hits to make it 5-3. Matt Mauldin was already 2-for-2 when he followed Laurens to the plate.

After finishing second at its regional meet for two consecutive years, A.L. Brown’s boys track team broke through with a championshiplevel performance. Brown coach Noah Lyon then tried to give away the accompanying hardware. The Wonders and East Rowan — driven to honor the memory of Jamey “Big Daddy” Ledbetter, an assistant coach who had died from pancreatic cancer six days earlier — tied for first place at the 3A Midwest Regional on Saturday in Granite Quarry. Lyon didn’t know about East’s source of motivation until LYON late in the meet, when he noticed how hard the Mustangs were competing and struck up a conversation with Laurie Wyrick. There were two winners but only one championship plaque. East officials told Lyon to take it because, as regional hosts, they’d have an easier time ordering a second one from the NCHSAA. Lyon, understanding the emotions attached to East’s accomplishment, wanted the Mustangs to accept the plaque instead. “It was a ROSEMAN very, very nice gesture on their part,” East coach Rick Roseman said. The two teams, now linked by their displays of good sportsmanship, will return to action today at the 3A state meet in Greensboro. The Wonders are more of a threat because Tavis Bailey and Jerrod Lipscomb are capable of producing double-digit points against elite competition, but Rowan County has a pair of top seeds in B.J. Grant (South) and Daishion Barger (West). East, which insisted that the Wonders keep the regional plaque, will have 10 entries at the state meet. One is the 4x400 team of Hunter Arey, Evan Hiatt, Ben Hancock and Joseph Furtado.

SOUTH’S QUAN GLASPY

LANDIS — B.J. Grant and Quan Glaspy grew up in the same neighborhood on the north side of Kannapolis. They’ve shared high-fives on the football, basketball and track teams at South Rowan, and now they’ll head to GRANT St. Paul’s to play football together. “I can’t shake him,” the stocky Glaspy said with a smile. “We both got accepted, so we decided to go to the same school. It will be a little more fun with us being there

for each other.” South’s G-Men have made a habit of following each other. Grant returned a kickoff for a touchdown against Salisbury last fall. It took two months, but Glaspy matched his buddy by taking one back against Carson. “I didn’t think I had that kickoff against Salisbury in me,” said Grant, GLASPY who swung momentum South’s way with that return. “That was the best thing my senior year — that and beating Kannapolis.”

Various Big Ten Conference officials continue to insist that the league’s spring meetings will be anticlimactic on the expansion front. That may be true, but it’s difficult to believe the league’s 11 athletic directors will return home without important information to relay to their campus leaders. Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany has made it clear that some degree of expansion probably is on the way, although he repeatedly has said there is no specific DELANY timetable or definite number of new members set. It’s virtually certain at least one team will be pulled in. Just one would be enough to allow the conference to stage a championship football game, which probably would increase annual revenue by $8 million. If the expansion is to be only the one team, the process could move along quickly. But if the many rumors are true that three to five new schools could be targeted, Delany and his staff will face a good deal of fencebuilding within the current membership. The perfect example in that regard is the ACC. The league’s acquisition of three Big East teams so rearranged the landscape that the governor of Virginia at time — Mark Warner — ultimately emerged as the primary power broker.

Salisbury falls in 2A semifinals BY BRET STRELOW

bstrelow@salisburypost.com

Salisbury’s Steven Page jumped over the baseline and pumped two N-C 5 fists after seeing Will Salisbury 1 Huggins’ shot sail long on match point. Page shook hands with his opponent, who then walked away to retrieve his towel. Huggins located his teammates, offered a thumbs-up and yelled, “Way to go Red Devils.” Page’s match-ending victory at No. 1 singles served as a consolation prize for the Hornets, who fell 5-1 at home against NewtonConover in a 2A state semifinal Thursday.

Salisbury was still alive heading into doubles during a 7-2 loss at Newton in midApril, but the Hornets (19-3) probably pushed coach Brian Tate’s Red Devils (25-0) harder in the rematch. “I think collectively, from PAGE top to bottom, that this match was much more competitive,” Salisbury coach Chris Myers said. “Coach Tate’s dad said that’s the best they’ve played all year, and they had to. Newton-Conover today had to play their best, and they did.

Lakers steamrolling defenseless Suns BY BOB BAUM

NHL

Associated Press

Playoffs

PHOENIX — A week ago, the Phoenix Suns were talking about how they no longer were marshmallows on defense, that this team had a toughness its predecessors sorely lacked. That idea was buried by a scoring avalanche in Los Angeles, where the Lakers amassed a total of 252 points to go up 2-0 in the Western Conference finals, shooting 58

percent in each game. Now the Suns have three days before Game 3 in Phoenix to try to figure out how to slow a team that seems primed for another title. Neither team practiced on Thursday. Both will resume workouts on Friday in preparation for Sunday night’s contest. The Lakers’ Pau Gasol acknowledged that “it must be frustrating” for the Suns to essentially be beaten at their own high-scoring, hot-shoot-

ing game. He expects a stiffer challenge as the series shifts to Phoenix. “It’s going to take a much bigger mindset or focus to go there and be successful and put the type of games and wins that we put in here,” Gasol said. History certainly is against the Suns. The Lakers are 41-1 when they are up 2-0 in a bestof-seven series. Los Angeles coach Phil Jackson is 46-0 when his teams have won the first two games of a series.

And no team has come back from 0-2 to win the West finals. “We’re not about to give up,” Suns coach Alvin Gentry said. “... You know when we won our two home games against San Antonio (in the conference semifinals), everybody just said, `Well, the only thing they’ve done is what they’re supposed to do.’ So the only thing they’ve done is what they’re supposed to do. We’ll go with that.”

Lewis’ numbers not so magical in East finals BY ANTONIO GONZALEZ Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. — There might always be pressure from the lucrative contract Rashard Lewis signed with the Orlando Magic, and his statistics through two games in the Eastern Conference finals aren’t making that go away. Eleven points. Four field goals. About $18.8 million this season. The highest paid member of the Magic, Lewis’ series slump is a big reason why the Magic are in an 0-2 hole entering Game 3 at Boston on Saturday night. And he knows it. “After we lost that second game on our home court, it’s been tough ever since,” Lewis said following Thursday’s practice. “You don’t point the

finger. You don’t want to blame. You just look yourself in the mirror and see what you could do to help this team win.” The Magic would take anything at this point. A clutch playoff performer in the past, Lewis has been blanketed by a revived Kevin Garnett and a relentless Celtics defense. Lewis is 4-for-17 from the field, including 1 of 9 from 3-point range. Garnett and Co. have often face-guarded Lewis, staying with him no matter where the ball is being passed. The formula, thus far, has all but taken Lewis out of the series. “I’m just trying to keep a hand up and run him off 3s and make him do things he doesn’t want to do,” Garnett said. After hitting several gamewinning shots in last season’s run to the NBA finals, Lewis averaged 17 points per game

MUSTANGS FROM 1B

Allen was scheduled to try a short bullpen session Thursday to determine his health and sharpness. If that went well, he may throw tonight against coach Bryan Tyson’s Tigers. “We all hope Thomas can pitch,” said Holmes, who is batting .476 with 15 doubles and 26 RBIs. “But we’ll be ready to play either way. Our young pitchers have come through all year, and we know we can count on our defense.” Tyson has been around a while. A decade ago, his loaded Central Cabarrus clubs and Jeff Safrit’s powerful East teams staged rumbles in the old SPC that people still talk about. Tyson has visited rowdy, jam-packed Staton Field often and knows he’s driving an activity bus into a hornet’s nest. “Tyson’s a coach I’ve got a lot of respect for,” Hightower said. “He works hard at it and does it right. He can stay calm in pressure situations, and that rubs off on his kids.” Hightower had a chance Wednesday to watch the Tigers calmly rally against South Rowan and was impressed with an offense led by Brandon Burris, Grayson Atwood and Matt Barrier. Burris has committed to Appalachian State. “Basically, Mount is a No. 1 seed,” Hightower said. The Tigers shared the SPC title with Northwest Cabarrus, but they were relegated to a No. 2 seed by a loss to A.L. Brown in the first round of the league tournament. Mount Pleasant will be the third straight SPC team the Mustangs have encountered in the playoffs. A fourth straight matchup with the SPC is possible. Northwest, home against Catholic tonight, is rolling. “Northwest has a great team, but all I’m thinking about right now is Mount Pleasant,” Hightower said. “They’re the team that’s keeping me awake at night.”

in the second round against Atlanta only a couple of weeks ago. That has disappeared against a Celtics team closing fast on Orlando’s shooters. Lewis heard criticism after averaging 14.1 points this season, the lowest since he became a regular starter in 1999-2000 with Seattle. Some felt the production was not enough for a player who signed a $118 million, six-year contract with Orlando in 2007. But the converted power forward shot 43 percent this season, the same as when he was an All-Star last season. The difference was, with the addition of Vince Carter and a talent-rich roster, Lewis had almost 400 fewer attempts. He backed up the contract with stellar shooting in sweeps of Atlanta and Charlotte in the first two rounds. But Lewis has become the

symbol of the team’s problems against Boston. The Magic shot 39 percent in Game 2. “No pressure on myself at all. I’m playing loose,” Lewis said. “The first two games I thought I played pretty well, just on offense I haven’t gotten very many shots.” Lewis often spoke about sacrificing individual goals, and he wasn’t discouraged about his numbers dipping. That is, so long as the unselfishness translated into wins. That hasn’t happened in the conference finals. Boston is devoting many of its efforts on him — not Dwight Howard. “You can say it’s a compliment,” Lewis said, “but at the same time it’s frustrating when you don’t win and you want to help your team win ballgames.”

Cammalleri leads Canadiens past Flyers BY JOHN WAWROW Associated Press

MONTREAL — Michael Cammalleri and Canadiens 5 the Montreal Flyers 1 Canadiens finally solved goalie Michael Leighton. Cammalleri scored in the first period to end Montreal’s two-game drought against Leighton, leading the Canadiens to a 5-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 3 of

the Eastern Conference final. Tom Pyatt and Dominic Moore had a goal and assist apiece for Montreal, which earned its first win in the series. Brian Gionta and Marc-Andre Bergeron also scored as Leighton’s shutout streak was snapped at 172:05. “We are a much better team when our backs are against the wall,” Gionta said. “We’ve dealt with it all year.” Philadelphia’s Simon Gagne foiled Jaroslav Halak’s shutout bid

by scoring 8:22 into the third period. Leighton stopped 34 shots. The Flyers had won six straight, dating to their second-round series win over Boston during which they overcame a 3-0 series deficit. It was Leighton’s first loss in five starts since taking over after Brian Boucher hurt his knee. Cammalleri got it started with his team-leading 13th goal, opening the scoring 7:05 into the game. Halak finished with 25 saves. Playing their first game at home

in 10 days, the Canadiens outshot Philadelphia 28-13 in building a 3-0 lead on Moore’s goal midway through the second period. Moore’s score sent the raucous crowd into a fury, leading to derisive chants of “Leighton! Leighton!” Game 4 of the best-of-seven series is Saturday in Montreal. During Leighton’s shutout streak, the Flyers outscored their opponents 13-0, dating to their 4-3 win against Boston in Game 7 of their second-round series.

Quan Glaspy makes a touchdown catch during South Rowan’s victory over A.L. Brown.

TOGETHER FROM 1B

Glaspy (5-11, 190 pounds) is hard-nosed, strong and versatile. He could help the St. Paul’s Tigers on offense, defense or special teams. Grant has the ability to be a steal for the Lawrenceville, Va., school that is one of the lower-profile institutions in the Division II CIAA. Physically, Grant is D-I. As far as explosive athleticsm, put him right up there in Rowan County with Salisbury’s Darien Rankin and West’s Domonique Noble. “An awful lot of coaches loved what they saw on film of B.J,” South coach Jason Rollins said. “They loved that pure football ability.” Lean, yet muscular, Grant (6-2, 180) can catch the football. He also has dunked basketballs fiercely, rejected shots with authority and highjumped 6 feet, 10 inches. “He amazes me,” Glaspy said. “How many guys are there that can jump 6-10?” Not that many, although Grant said he plans to pursue two sports at St. Paul’s and will join a 7-foot high jumper on the track team. “I’m hoping to learn a lot of things from him,” Grant said. What Grant learned at South was patience. He’s among the school’s most talented receivers ever, but he played his three varsity sea-

sons for a program that emphasized the run. In that light, Grant’s career numbers — 84 catches, 1,402 yards, 18 TDs — are pretty special. In the past 50 years, only 13 Rowan receivers have caught more balls and only 10 produced more yardage. Grant is second to Adrian Parker in both categories in South’s all-time book. Glaspy’s not a guy you’ll find in South’s record book because he never specialized in any one thing. He was primarily a defensive back, but he also scored eight TDs as a senior — four receiving, three rushing and one on that kickoff return. When running back D’Andre Harris was struggling with a hamstring pull late in the 2009 season, Glaspy went both ways and more than held his own. “D’Andre goes down and Quan steps in and we really don’t miss a beat,” Rollins said. “Not many kids could’ve done that.” Glaspy has very good speed. His contributions to the track team came in the sprints and the sprint relays. He’s never really been looked at as a marquee guy, but at least one coach, offensive coordinator Mickey Lineberger of the 3AA state champion South Point Red Raiders, believes he can be. Rollins, who played at South Point, often studies film with Lineberger be-

cause their offenses have a lot in common. Watching South Rowan on film, Lineberger kept asking about No. 5. “Wow! Who’s that kid? Where’s he going?” No. 5 was Glaspy. “I respect his opinion, and he told me No. 5 was really special and that he was the most underrated kid we had,” Rollins said. “St. Paul’s said a lot of the same things when they saw Quan on film. They like him on offense more than defense — as a slot receiver or wideout.” Rollins is confident both players will do fine on the field and make the adjustments to handle college academics. Glaspy is interested in a business degree, and Grant possesses quite a bit of mechanical talent. “I’m excited for both of them because what’s better than football and the chance to get an education from it?” Rollins said. “These two kids need football, and football needs them.” St. Paul’s is 200 miles north of South Rowan, but Rollins figures his guys learned valuable lessons during a 9-3 senior season that will help in tough times. “All our coaches pounded it in to them hard that it was time to grow up and be men,” Rollins said. “Now it’s time for them to get away from here and be somebody. We all believe in them and want them to do it. Now they just have to go do it.”

South’s B.J. Grant enters the 3A state meet as the No. 1 seed in the high jump. He finished third last year in Greensboro.

An inspired effort enabled that relay squad to finish second and score eight critical points in the last race of the regional. “I could see their kids really thought a lot of that coach,” said Lyon, an assistant starter at the meet, “and I think the coach really thought a lot of their kids.” Two relay teams ran into trouble in that closing race, allowing A.L. Brown’s 4x400 team to finish with the sixthfastest time even though it participated in the slower heat. The Wonders received the one point necessary to tie East. “Kids care about people,” Lyon said. “They’re 16, 17, 18, and sometimes we get aggravated at them. At the same time, 99 percent of them have good hearts. “That’s the great thing about high school athletics. A lot of their kids and a lot of our kids may never go on to compete in any other athletics. Especially their kids, they’re going to remember they won that regional championship. They may have tied with us, but they’re going to remember they won that for that coach.” Lyon praised his foursome of Jharrod Evans, Anterrio Evans, Timothy Hall and Matthew Gainey for running hard enough to capitalize on the unexpected chance to score from the first heat. That said, the lucky break left Lyon with conflicting feelings. “As I saw East was going to beat us in that 4x400, before the disqualification or anything like that, I wanted to win it,” Lyon said, “but I wasn’t totally just ter-

favorite in the 110s thanks to regional time of 14.18, and Crest’s Demonte Wilson is seeded second. South’s Grant won a regional title in the high jump by clearing 6-8. Parkwood’s Marcus Leak and Hickory Ridge’s Coye Still succeeded at 6-6. West’s 4x200 team of Barger, Brandon Ijames, Trey Mashore and Ershawn Wilder is seeded third, followed by A.L. Brown. West’s Amber Holloway is the most noteworthy competitor on the girls side. She’s seeded second in the 100 hurdles (15.03) behind Jay M.

Tampa sweeps Yanks Associated Press

NEW YORK — Carlos Pena, James Shields and the Tampa Bay Rays left Yankee Stadium with more than a twogame sweep and baseball’s best record. They took off supremely confident they can play well in the home of the World Series champions. “This ballpark didn’t treat us kindly last year,” manager Joe Maddon said Thursday night after an 8-6 win. “It was important to show that we can win here. It’s important in regards to the mental factor.” Pena homered twice and Ben Zobrist and B.J. Upton also connected as Tampa Bay battered Andy Pettitte and posted its sixth straight win. The Rays became the first team to sweep the Yankees this season, doing it at a park where Tampa Bay had lost six in a row until this week. “These guys are hot as a pistol right now. Anytime we make a mistake, they are on it,” Alex Rodriguez said. Mariners 4, Blue Jays 3 SEATTLE — Ken Griffey Jr.’s game-winning, pinch-hit single in the ninth capped Seattle’s three-run rally off AL saves leader Kevin Gregg. “The last two weeks were probably the toughest in his career,” Mike Sweeney said. “But he knew we had his back. Probably everyone in Seattle had his back.” Griffey dressed quickly and said he would not talk publicly about his retribution. Royals 9, Indians 3 CLEVELAND — Luke Hochevar pitched a complete game and Alberto Callaspo hit a three-run homer. Tigers 5, Athletics 2 OAKLAND, Calif. — Jeremy Bonderman won for the first time in over a month. Red Sox 6, Twins 2 BOSTON — Kevin Youkilis hit a three-run homer to help Jon Lester earn his fourth straight victory. The Twins fell out of sole possession of first place and into a tie with Detroit. Angels 6, White Sox 5 CHICAGO — Ervin Santana threw seven innings, and Juan Rivera hit a two-run homer. A.J. Pierzynski lined a ground-rule double over the left-field wall with the bases loaded in the eighth inning, leaving Pierre at third. He would’ve had a chance at scoring the tying run from first. Andruw Jones flied out with runners on second and third. Rangers 13, Orioles 7 ARLINGTON, Texas — Nelson Cruz had a three-run homer and four RBIs in his first career four-hit game. NATIONAL LEAGUE Cardinals 4, Marlins 2 ST. LOUIS — Adam Wainwright dominated after a shaky start and Matt Holliday got his first two RBIs in four games since moving to third in the order for the Cardinals. Phillies 5, Cubs 4 PHILADELPHIA — Raul Ibanez hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning, Jimmy Rollins hit a three-run homer and Chase Utley also went deep for the Phillies. Brewers 4, Pirates 3 PITTSBURGH — George Kottaras, playing only because of an injury, doubled in a run and Milwaukee rallied from a three-run deficit to end a nine-game losing streak. Carlos Villanueva finished it off by pitching the ninth for the first save this season by a Brewers reliever other than Trevor Hoffman. He sat out to work on mechanical problems. Mets 10, Nationals 7 WASHINGTON — David Wright hit a three-run double and had four RBIs for New York, and Raul Valdes filled in admirably for injured starter John Maine for five innings. Maine threw just five pitches — a walk to Nyjer Morgan — before manager Jerry Manuel removed him. Maine, who has had problems with his right shoulder, left the game “for precautionary reasons,” the Mets said. Rockies 4, Astros 0 HOUSTON — Ubaldo Jimenez allowed one hit over seven innings and Troy Tulowitzki had a three-run homer. The only hit Jimenez (8-1) allowed was Humberto Quintero’s single to start the third inning. Jimenez improved his major league-low ERA to 0.99.

Braves stun Cincy BY PAUL NEWBERRY Associated Press

ATLANTA — Brooks Conrad slowed up as he Braves 10 rounded first Reds 9 base, unsure if his drive had cleared the left field wall to give Atlanta an improbable victory. Then he saw Laynce Nix swat at his empty glove in frustration. The ball went over. Game over. Conrad hit a pinch-hit grand slam Thursday to finish off a sevenrun ninth inning that gave the Braves a 10-9 victory over the Cincinnati Reds, who fell out of first CONRAD in the NL Central. “It was a horrible ending,” said Reds manager Dusty Baker, who appeared close to breaking down after the game. “Boy, that was a tough one.” The Braves put together the biggest ninth-inning comeback since Cleveland rallied from six runs down against Tampa Bay on May 25, 2009, according to STATS LLC. “I hit it and I was kind of talking to it to get out of there and I saw (Nix) jump up,” Conrad said. “From my angle ... it looked like he kind of brought it back. I put my hands no my helmet and said, ’No way he caught that.”’ He didn’t. “I thought I had it,” Nix said. “It just bounced out.” Atlanta fell behind 8-0 against rookie sensation Mike Leake and was still down 9-3 heading to the ninth. Four straight hits gave the

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Laynce Nix can’t reach the ball on a game-winning grand slam by Atlanta’s Brooks Conrad. Braves hope. A walk to David Ross loaded the bases with no outs, bringing the tying run to the plate. Martin Prado hit a grounder to third that looked like a sure double play, but Miguel Cairo couldn’t get the ball out of his glove. Jason Heyward struck out, and Cincinnati turned to closer Francisco Cordero (1-3) for the last two outs. Instead, Conrad hit a drive that deflected off Nix’s glove as he reached over the top of the wall at the 380-foot sign.

Knox narrows options to UNC, Georgia Tech Associated Press

Collins is 332-287 in coaching stints with Chicago, Detroit and Washington.  New Jersey Nets team president Rod Thorn will take over as the team’s general manager. Thorn told the Bergen (N.J.) Record and The New York Daily News that the franchise would combine the two positions instead of replacing Kiki Vandeweghe.  NEW YORK — Referee Joe DeRosa has been suspended without pay for throwing a ball at a fan during halftime of an NBA playoff game in Orlando. At halftime of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals between Orlando and Boston, DeRosa was walking to the scorer’s table to get the warm-up jackets for his crew. A fan behind the table approached DeRosa, gesturing with his arms and appearing to be shouting at the veteran official. DeRosa flipped the game ball to the fan, who tossed it back.

SALISBURY POST

BIG TEN

ALL-COUNTY SWIMMING

FROM 1B

Duke and North Carolina, the two schools that account for about 99 percent of the ACC’s reputation as a basketball kingpin, weren’t wild about the idea of adding so much as a 10th team, much less zooming to 12. Schedules had to be revamped across the board, travel expenses in minor sports soared, and any semblance of a “conference family” was forever abandoned. So much ill will was created among the old Big East clan that pre-raid relationships will never be restored. At the end of the turmoil, the ACC wound up a weaker basketball conference, roughly the same in football and with a baseball “championship” tournament that prohibits four teams every year from even competing. The per-team television income remained about the same as when the ACC had nine members, and those allimportant football championship games have done nothing whatsoever to create any sort of national interest or prestige. What happened within and to the ACC will not be casually disregarded by the Big Ten presidents and boards of trustees, most that ultimately are supposed to account for their actions to taxpayers and state governments. In other words, the proexpansionists in the Big Ten simply can’t assume that all of the wheeling and dealing can be done behind locked doors and be forever hidden from the public. Warner shot a hole in that sort of nonsense when he told the ACC eiEASLEY ther to include Virginia Tech or expand without the support of the University of Virginia. Mike Easley and/or the North Carolina System Board of Governors could have done exactly the same favor for East Carolina but didn’t so choose. College conferences often like to think they can operate in a vacuum and make up rules as they please, but that’s not really the case. Expansions are all about money and allowing television networks to gain more control over college sports. But the process also involves real people and can touch on issues that transcend athletic competition. If the Big Ten is smart, those matters will be addressed at length in the near future.

SALISBURY FROM 1B

They were able to win 5-1, and we were right there with them.” Newton-Conover won the first five completed matches, and Page pulled out a 6-7 (2-7), 6-3, (10-7) victory. Page and Lewis Young (third-set tiebreaker) had prevailed for Salisbury in the first meeting. Seth Gentry (third-set tiebreaker) and Alex Weant were involved in close losses that day, but Austin Flynn and Alan Lebowitz combined to win only five games. Fifth-seeded Dillon Cervantez posted a 6-0, 6-2 victory against Gentry on Thursday, and every other match was tight. “I felt great about today, and I know the boys were loose beforehand,” Myers said. “I thought the result was going to be different, but to NewtonConover’s credit, they just played better than us. We played great. They just played a little bit better, and that happens sometimes. “I can honestly say without a doubt it’s been the best season in 12 years since I’ve been here. We had such a great group of kids, but unfortunately we came up a little bit short.” Sixth-seeded Austin Adams followed Cervantez’s victory with a 6-4, 6-4 win against Weant. Third-seeded Ryan Lampe won 6-2, 5-7, (11-9) against Lebowitz, who trailed

8-5 in the third-set tiebreaker before twice pulling even. Fourth-seeded John Reid closed out a 6-4, 6-4 victory against Young, and secondseeded Hang Lak Choi punched the Red Devils’ ticket to a final against Northwood (15-6) by winning 6-4, 7-6 (7-5) against Flynn. Choi, who overcame secondset deficits of 4-1 and 5-4, captured the last two points of the tiebreaker. “I probably played my best match of the season,” said Flynn, the only senior in Salisbury’s top six. “I kinda kept playing the same game, and he was playing really aggressive. It depended whether those really aggressive shots went in or not, and he started hitting some really good shots.” Huggins fought off one set point while facing a 5-4 deficit against Page’s serve and bolted to a 6-0 lead in the first-set tiebreaker. Page bounced back to force a third-set tiebreaker and trailed 7-5 before winning the final five points. “I didn’t serve as well as I could have in the first set, and Coach Myers told me some things,” Page said. “I was able to get it to come around and hold a couple times, break him and get the (second) set. “I had to get some returns in and make sure to get some points out of my serve. I had double-faulted a couple times. Just getting it in deep and not being on the defensive immedi-

ately made me rally with him, and I figured out he doesn’t like that.” Page was playing for pride at that point. The dual-team victory propelled Newton-Conover to the 2A final for the fourth consecutive year. It lost the previous three to Cardinal Gibbons, which has moved up to 3A. “It was an open door for us this season,” Tate said. “There’s no Gibbons standing in the way. I know Salisbury is a young team, Shelby is a young team. We may not get back there next year, so I preached to our guys to take advantage of this open door and step through it because we may not get this shot again.” Tate said he looked at the shell of the 2A playoff bracket during the preseason and figured his team would have to visit Salisbury in the Western final. The Hornets rolled through league play without a loss, shut out their first two postseason foes and earned a 6-3 win against Shelby in a third-round match Tuesday. “It’s been an honor to play for Coach Myers the last four years, especially this year,” Flynn said. “It’s a special feeling knowing that every match, especially today, everyone just gave it their all and gave it their whole heart. Sometimes in sports you don’t have the whole team giving it their all. I feel confident we left everything we had out there. All year we just stuck together as a team.”
