HAZARD AHEAD FOR MINI GOLF Course must be made accessible to handicapped or shut down
Governor doesn’t sign or veto measure; Fibrant safe either way
BY KARISSA MINN firstname.lastname@example.org
SALISBURY — The county parks department is trying to raise $225,000 to make the miniature golf course at Dan Nicholas Park fully accessible. Right now, it’s virtually impossible to guide a wheelchair or mid-size stroller along the course’s concrete sidewalks, which are less than 2 feet wide. The holes are surrounded with bricks and sometimes blocked by obstacles. “One of the most important pieces of this is being able to provide those with disabilities the opportunity to recreate at Dan Nicholas Park,” said Don Bringle, director of the Rowan County Parks Department. The other most important piece? If the miniature golf course isn’t rebuilt, it will have to shut down next spring. The course was created in the 1970s, before the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 set accessibility requirements, so it has been “grandfathered” into compliance. But President Barack Obama announced revisions to the requirements in July 2010, and now all miniature golf courses must meet them by March 2012. At least 50 percent of all holes on a course must be accessible and form a consecutive route that enters and exits at the same spot. The county parks department wants to demolish the existing course and build a new ADA-compliant one. Bringle said county commissioners told the department last year it could solicit donations from foundations, businesses and individuals. So far, it has received commitments totaling $31,000 of the $225,000 goal. The parks department has been trying to rebuild the miniature golf course for the past few years, Bringle said. Last year, a request made to the county for capital project funds didn’t survive budget cuts. “The county commissioners previously have been gracious enough to provide funding for sidewalks to make the rest of what we have accessible,” Bringle said. Aside from the miniature golf course, Dan Nicholas Park already meets the new ADA standards, he said. The park even has a fully accessible playground right next to the course. Once the money is raised, the department will take bids for the project. Bringle said the newly designed course will be built on its current footprint, which must still fit 36 holes divided into two course paths. “People have asked me, ‘Why don’t you just build one?’ ” Bringle said. “We have about 35,000 people playing miniature golf in a 12-month period. I don’t think just 18 holes will work well.”
Broadband law to go into effect BY EMILY FORD email@example.com

Don Bringle, director of the Rowan County Parks and Recreation Department, shows narrow paths that make it difﬁcult for wheelchairs and strollers to get around the course. Plans are to make the 40-year-old miniature golf course at Dan Nicholas Park more handicapped accessible like the course shown at left. Park ofﬁcials are trying to raise $225,000 for the project.
SALISBURY — Gov. Bev Perdue will neither sign nor veto a controversial broadband bill, meaning it will become law without her signature. Perdue on Friday issued a statement critical of House Bill 129 but said the state needs “rules to prevent cities and towns from having an unfair advantage over providers in the private sector.” A veto would have been difficult to sustain in the Republican-controlled General Assembly. Salisbury won exemption for Fibrant from the legislation, which will limit how PERDUE cities can operate and fund broadband systems in competition with private companies. Cable and phone companies worked for four years to pass the legislation. Fibrant is the city’s new utility that sells Internet, cable TV and phone service. Four other N.C. cities with broadband networks up and running are exempt. Whether Perdue had signed or vetoed the bill, “Salisbury is fine either way,” Assistant City Manager Doug Paris said. “We have not tracked it, because for the city of Salisbury, if the governor vetoes it, that is a great result,” Paris said. “But if she doesn’t, that is also a great result because we are exempt.” The city fought hard for the exemption, hiring a communications attorney in Wash- PARIS ington, D.C., and a lobbyist in Raleigh. City officials made multiple trips to Raleigh to testify at committee hearings and sway legislators. Salisbury’s efforts paid off with perhaps the most lucrative service area of all exempted cities. Salisbury can sell Fibrant throughout Rowan County, as long as town aldermen, county commissioners or school board members approve. Spencer alderman Jeff Morris recently said the town should ask voters whether they want Fibrant in Spencer by way of a non-binding referendum. Paris said he told Morris “that Salisbury was not ready to discuss full retail service in Spencer or another town at this time.” “It would take many years of planning and due diligence before we could begin discussions on full retail service,” Paris said. While Paris said holding a referendum is a moot point, he suggested a feasibility study into hooking up a couple of “community anchors” in Spencer, such as the Spencer Public Library or Town Hall.

Knox named a STEM school
Robertson Family Foundation OKs more than $1.9 million SALISBURY — The Rowan-Salisbury School System has been approved for $448,586 in grants from the Blanche & Julian Robertson Family Foundation, the organization announced Friday. The awards to the school system are part of more than $1.9 million in grants the foundation approved in the spring 2011 grant cycle. The Robertson board reviewed 102 grant applications, one of its largest numbers ever, and approved 63. The Rowan-Salisbury Schools received 13 grant approvals, most of which are technology driven. “The Rowan-Salisbury School System is so fortunate to have the support from the Robertson Foundation,” Superintendent Dr. Judy Grissom said Friday. “We would not have made as much progress in technology if the

SALISBURY — Knox Middle School will become the RowanSalisbury School System’s first STEM middle school. Lisa Wear, director of Horizons Unlimited, said the school will be fused with rigorous and relevant science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. Wear said STEM can also be described as “Strategies That Engage Minds.” Knox has been tapped to act as a STEM school for a few reasons, Wear said. The school is close to Horizons Unlimited resources and

laboratory facilities. It is also a feeder school for Salisbury High, the site of the district’s Math and Science Academy, which provides more rigorous math and science courses for students who intend to major in a STEM field in college. The district has applied for a grant through the National Science Foundation to advance STEM education at Knox. Wear said although initial brainstorming to transition Knox to a STEM school has begun, more extensive planning will begin when Dr. James Davis takes over as principal at the end of this school year.

Political tug of war hurting those in need of unemployment help Associated Press
RALEIGH — An unemployed road construction foreman from Burlington had his living room furniture repossessed and can’t pay the child support that helps provide his son’s school supplies and medication. A former hiring executive from Wilmington who once earned more than $100,000 a year has drained the last of her savings and now risks losing her car. A Wilson man says he delayed seeking a diagnosis for his sudden pain until he couldn’t take anymore and learned at the hospital he’d had a stroke.
All three, who have been unemployed for more than a year, said the ongoing political tug of war between Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue and the General Assembly’s new Republican leaders has compounded their financial troubles. The dispute has dragged on for five weeks. They are among 42,000 long-term jobless workers who were suddenly cut off from receiving extended unemployment benefits April 16. That’s when Perdue vetoed legislation that would have kept the federally financed help coming. The bill also would have forced the governor to accept double-digit budget cuts before negotiations over state spend-

Ken Williams, 61, of Wilson, was hospitalized this week with what the unemployed respiratory therapist learned was a stroke. “I can tell you that making the decision to come to the hospital was made greatly more difficult by the fact I have no income and no money,” Williams said from his hospital bed, his speech slightly slurred. “I was concerned that if I went and it was nothing, I’d run up a bill and I’d have another problem. It kept me from coming to the hospital maybe a day before I did.” Tracy Whitman, 50, of Burlington said after losing his $394 weekly ben-

When the bill becomes law, rural areas will be left behind, Paris said, “where the private sector has continuously refused to provide service except satellite Internet, which is slower than dial-up and very expensive.” The cable lobby, however, viewed Perdue’s decision to let the bill become law as a victory for taxpayers. “We are pleased with the governor’s decision and her appreciation of the need for rules when government goes
into competition with private business,” said Marcus Trathen, attorney for the N.C. Cable Telecommunications Association. “This is a good day for taxpayers and for responsible government. “We share the governor’s commitment to ensure that all North Carolinians have access to high quality and affordable service, and we look forward to working with her towards this goal.” In her statement, Perdue said every school, household and business in North Carolina — no matter where they are — should have access to efficient and affordable broadband services.

around with us like this.” The conflict over unemployment benefits stems from a decision by the General Assembly’s Republican leaders to achieve a top priority: a state budget that cuts spending and doesn’t raise taxes. The Legislature is fully in GOP hands for the first time in 141 years. North Carolina is one of about three dozen states in which a federal extended benefits program of up to 20 weeks was created to lessen the pain for the long-term unemployed caught in the recession. An improving unemployment rate meant lawmakers had to change a formula to keep the benefits flowing for some.

Catawba lecture explores run-up to secession BY HUGH FISHER email@example.com
SALISBURY — One hundred and fifty years ago Friday, delegates from around North Carolina voted to secede from the Union. The anniversary of the Civil War is being commemorated throughout the South with a focus on history and its impact on the world today. In Salisbury, Catawba College professor Gary Freeze gave a lecture on the city’s role in the decision to join the Confederacy. To say “states’ rights” or “slav-
ery” caused secession oversimplifies things, Freeze said. He sees in the decision a longstanding desire to be free of outside authority, stretching back to the Mecklenburg Resolves — a declaration of independence signed over a FREEZE year before the July 4 declaration authored by Thomas Jefferson. That North Carolina declaration
was signed on the same day: May 20, 1775. “Their identities were tied up in the preservation of their state,” Freeze said. But before Lincoln called for troops to do battle with Southern states, North Carolinians were far from united in the desire to break away. In his lecture, hosted by the N.C. Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, Freeze pointed to a divide between farmers who grew wheat and plantation owners who grew cotton.
The vote for secession was largely split along those lines. County by county, the cotton-growing counties voted to secede. But Freeze also noted that most counties voting for secession were predominantly Baptist, a denomination that values individual authority and local governance. By contrast, largely Methodist areas — where ministers were sent out by bishops, not called by individual churches — tended to vote for the Union. It’s not a perfect model, Freeze said.
Little slice of serenity ‘You look out there, and you know there is a God’ ANNAPOLIS — Marge Payne had two garden parties this week because, well, she has that kind of garden. Kids in formal attire often come to Marge’s place for their pre-prom photographs. Marge also likes to invite members of her garden club, the Kneeling Gardeners, over to talk about flowers, as well as other friends, neighbors and members of Trinity United Methodist Church. MARK “She has WINEKA the prettiest yard in Kannapolis,” says Nancy Rutledge, a fellow member of the Kneeling Gardeners, “and she’s gracious enough to share it with everyone.” The landscape around Payne’s handsome brick home off Willow Drive is filled with blossoming trees, flowers and bushes; old and new statues; trellises; birdhouses; water features; Mondo grass and moss; and hardscape features such as a backyard gazebo, slate walks, a rocklined creek bed and humpbacked bridge. She had her own irrigation well installed several years ago so her city water bills wouldn’t be so high. Payne’s favorite flower is a spectacular climbing hydrangea that partly frames her garage door. This Moonglow hydrangea, growing for seven years now, is at its peak blossom time, drawing oohs and aahs from all visitors. “I want to share it,” Payne explains. “I’m not trying to show off. I want to share it with everyone because it’s so unusual.” Likewise, the Henryi clematis by Payne’s back door is a show-stopper with all of its white flowers. But Marge’s garden seems to hold beauty around every corner. “You look out there, and you know there is a God,” she says from her sunroom. “I couldn’t have achieved this myself.”
Help needed A bad fall last July on a Salisbury sidewalk — she says the downtown must make the streetscape more accessible — has sharply cut back her physical activity. She has been relying on a walker and is preparing for another round of therapy. “I’m only a supervisor,”
But it shows that North Carolina was by no means monolithic then, just as it is politically diverse today. “And that’s what made North Carolina so distinct,” he said. Salisbury, too, hosted both prounion and pro-secession factions. But, Freeze noted, the rhetoric leading up to the declaration of war was one of outsiders invading the homeland, not the image of “brother against brother” that later was seen. “The ‘Year of Secession,’ from the

No Juneteenth this year as organizers gear up for 2012 SALISBURY — For the first time in nearly two decades, Rowan County won’t have a Juneteenth celebration. But organizers say it will be back, bigger and better, next year. Juneteenth is marked each June 19 and commemorates the 1865 abolition of slavery and enforcement of President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation in Texas. The annual celebration that began in Texas has spread across the nation. In Rowan, the festival has been held each year since 1994 at Kelsey Scott Park and has become a much-anticipated and well attended commu-
nity gathering. Sherry Hawthorne, president of the Juneteenth committee, said the cancellation of this year’s event is due to the planning of the 2012 event, which will be a three-day celebration. Anyone interested in serving on a planning committee and helping with next year’s event can call Hawthorne at 704-499-1197. There was no word Friday on whether organizers would still hold an annual back-toschool event that provides supplies to children in need and has been paid for in part with proceeds from Juneteenth.

Marge Payne feeds the fish in her small pond next to the garage at her Willow Drive home. she says. “It hurts my heart, not even being able to pull a weed.” She now relies on her longtime assistant, Mary Cowan of Salisbury, and David Lee for their landscaping and gardening skills. Before he died, Fred Geter of Salisbury also was a tremendous help in the yard. “I wouldn’t have all this without Mary’s help,” Payne adds as they walk together around the premises. A Davie County native, Marge Canupp Payne left home at 17 to attend cadet nursing school in Charlotte. But before she finished the program, she married Red Wetmore, and the couple moved onto a small farm of horses and beef cattle in
Woodleaf. As a young mother, Payne first started planting flowers around the farm. Wetmore also was a brakeman for Southern Railway Co. The couple had a son, Charlie, who lives in Rowan County, and three daughters, Susan, Cindy and Eva. The girls live in Wisconsin, Florida and Charlotte, respectively. Red Wetmore died in 1975, and Payne went the next 19 years as a single woman. She eventually returned to Rowan Technical College to earn her nursing degree, working at Rowan Memorial Hospital and the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Salisbury. She later returned to school to become a cardio-
pulmonary technician and retired from the VA in 1981. Payne lived in various places before moving in 1984 to a Club House Drive address in Salisbury. With Geter’s help, her garden in Salisbury grew bigger and better, but her life took a dramatic turn in 1992 when she met Brandon Payne, who had been a vice president at Cannon Mills in Kannapolis.
Fateful relationship They married in 1994 and moved to the Willow Drive residence. “He was the greatest thing in my life,” says Marge, also known as Margie to some of her

SALISBURY — Bob Lippard is hoping Tuesday’s education revival leaves local residents feeling energized and excited about ways they can support public education. “This is a point for revitalization and commitment,” the Rowan County United Way executive director said. “We hope that they’ll have some new ideas about how everyone can become a part of our students’ education.” The revival, hosted by the Rowan County United Way and Rowan County Partners for Education, will begin with a free dinner provided by a United Way Worldwide grant. John Dornan, former president/executive director at Public School Forum of North Carolina and motivational speaker Laura Hamilton will be the guest speakers for the event. Lippard said they will share information about how to prevent dropouts and cultivate effective teaching. Information gathered during listening sessions, conducted by the United Way last fall, will also be shared during the event. Lippard said parents, students, law enforcement officers, faith-based leaders and a variety of other community members participated in the listening groups about effective teaching. The evening will also include breakout sessions to cater to specific interests. “There will be information shared on what we can do as individuals and groups in the community to help support teachers and help them reach
every child in our classrooms,” Lippard said. David Cowger, lead pastor at World Hope Worship Center and a listening session participant, said informing the public is at the heart of the event. “We’re trying to get people informed about opportunities,” he said. Cowger said anyone can help out by mentoring, tutoring and assisting teachers in the classroom. “Really anything that we can do to help teachers do their job,” he said. “So we can lend our support to teachers so they can be more focused on their gift, which is teaching.” Cowger said the event will also provide an opportunity for residents to offer feedback about public education. “It’s an opportunity for their voice to be heard,” he said. “We want to hear their voice and we want to give them direction if they want to get involved in a specific area.” Lippard said he’s hoping for a large turnout Tuesday. “We’re very excited. It should be a unique and wonderful opportunity for everybody to attend,” he said. “We hope that as people leave that evening, they will be able to identify what they are willing to do both individually and collectively to support effective teaching and to help prevent dropouts in our schools.” The free event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Holiday Inn. RSVP by Monday morning by calling 704-633-1802 and leaving a message. Contact reporter Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.
Mother, son charged after scuffle with police GRANITE QUARRY — Authorities said a 14-year-old was shot with a stun gun Wednesday after he shoved Granite Quarry Police Officer R i c h a r d Tester. And the boy’s mother was arrested after pushing an officer and trying to kick another one. A report from the PATRICK Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said the boy called 911 Wednesday night because his parents, Joseph and Karyn Patrick, were intoxicated and fighting. When an officer arrived at 1239 S. Main St., he was met at the patio door by Joseph and Karyn Patrick. Then their 14-year-old son joined them, with a semi-automatic weapon tucked into his pants pocket. The officer told the boy repeatedly to remove the gun, the report said, but he refused. So the officer called for
additional units. Authorities said Joseph Patrick went back inside, leaving his son and wife, and the son finally removed his weapon when a Sheriff’s Office deputy who the boy knows arrived. At some point, Karyn Patrick, 44, began cursing and then pushed an officer, the report said. As Karyn Patrick was being arrested, her son lunged at and shoved Tester. Tester used a stun gun on the boy and he fell to the floor of the deck, the report said. Karyn Patrick, while restrained by another officer, repeatedly tried to kick Tester in the upper leg, but was eventually placed in a patrol car, the report said. Patrick and her son were both taken to the magistrate’s office. The boy was given a juvenile referral while Karyn Patrick was charged with assault on a law enforcement officer and placed under a $500 secured bond.
SC man accused of using faked prescription SALISBURY — A South Carolina man was arrested in Salisbury after trying to fill a forged a forged prescription for the prescription drug Adderall at a local pharmacy, authorities said. Police said James Matthew McManus had driven across North and South Carolina passing the forged and photocopied prescription before his arrest. McManus, 32, of Edgemoor, S.C., was charged with felony obtaining a controlled substance by fraud or forgery after police say he tried to get the fake prescription past pharmacists at Moose Pharmacy on West Innes Street. He was placed under a $500 secured bond. According to a Salisbury Police Department report,
McManus asked a pharmacist at Moose Pharmacy what the cash price of the Adderall would be and how much it would be if he just wanted to purchase half of it. The pharmacist told McManus she needed to call someone about the prescription since it was from a South Carolina doctor. McManus told her he would be back to pick it up, but the pharmacist called police and gave them a description of his car. McManus was arrested in the 500 block of Brenner Avenue. A doctor in South Carolina said McManus had made copies of a prescription and was trying to get the prescriptions filled across the Carolinas.
Wrong winners announced BBQ Festival SPENCER — The wrong winners were inadvertently announced last weekend at the 2011 Salisbury Rowan BBQ Festival in Spencer. The correct winners are: First place — Patterson Porkery, Chase Overcash Second place — Team Smoky Lane, Keith Lane Third place — Holy Smoke Team, Jeff Swicegood People’s Choice — Blowin’ Smoke, Jack Moore (first) and Holy Smoke, Jeff Swicegood (second) Pitmaster’s Award — Holy Smoke, Jeff Swicegood “It is to the embarrassment of the SCA Foundation, the sponsors and the competitors that it happened,” said George Busby, coordinator for the festival and director of the
Salisbury Cultural Arts Foundation. Busby said it’s taken him all week to find, correlate and correct the paper trail to determine the exact winners. “I must personally take ultimate responsibility for the error and promise to put in effect proper safeguards for 2012,” he said in a press release. All competitors have been notified by phone or email, and the winners are posted on the BBQ Festival website, he said. “Although there is no cash prize attached to any award, the integrity of the competition awards is paramount in importance to all,” Busby said. Next year, the event will be even better, he said.

SALISBURY — Mrs. Bronnie Efird Foreman Hall, 86, passed away May 19, 2011, at the Lutheran Home at Trinity Oaks in Salisbury. Born on May 8, 1925, in Rowan County, she was the daughter of the late Thomas A. Foreman, Sr. (Tom) and Bronnie Efird Foreman (Bron) of Salisbury. She was educated in Salisbury City Schools and graduated from Boyden High School in 1942. She graduated from Catawba College in 1946 with an AB degree in mathematics.

Prosecutor wants law SECESSION on dismembering corpses FROM 3a
RALEIGH (AP) — The prosecutor in the Zahra Baker case wants North Carolina lawmakers to penalize the act of dismembering a body in order to conceal a crime. District Attorney James Gaither said Friday he’s working with two state representatives to introduce a bill this session. It’s already illegal to secretly bury a corpse or conceal a death in order to cover up a crime. The bill Gaither wants would add dismembering a body to the
list. Zahra Baker, a 10-yearold girl with disabilities, was reported missing from her Hickory home last October. Police eventually found some of her remains in searches around western North Carolina. Her head remains missing. Zahra’s stepmother, Elisa Baker, has been charged with second-degree murder. Court documents say Elisa Baker told investigators Zahra was dismembered after dying.
summer of 1860 to the summer of 1861, was a deeply complex year in Salisbury,” Freeze said. Even as locals were expressing a willingness to fight, if needed, the Constitutional Union Party held its statewide rally here. Some 6,000 people gathered in Salisbury for that event. There were also racial tensions, with at least one attempted lynching. That man survived, thanks to the intervention of city leaders who helped him escape to Charlotte, Freeze said.
But despite all of the debate, when Lincoln called for volunteers to fight the South, Freeze said, the tide of opinion turned. Those who attended Freeze’s leture, the first in a series of anniversary lectures, said they learned something about local, and national, history. “I think what I learned more than anything was that the Civil War was about more than just slavery,” said Nancy Davis of Archdale. Brenda Leonard of Lexington said she learned the significance of May 20. “It’s no longer just another date,” she said. Contact Hugh Fisher via the editor’s desk at 704-7974244.
Bag of cocaine falls out of pocket in arrest SALISBURY — Police say a small bag of cocaine fell out of a man’s pocket as he was being arrested for trespassing Thursday night. Eugene Oliver Jr., 41, of the streets of Salisbury, was charged with second-degree trespassing and felony possession of cocaine. He was placed under a $500 secured
bond. The arrest was made at 500 E. Innes St., an address from which Oliver had previously b e e n OLIVER banned.
Sex assault case involves underage girl CONCORD — A 40-yearold Concord man is charged with raping an underage girl, police said Friday. David Matthew Hallman, 40, of 562 Central Drive, is in the Cabarrus County jail u n d e r HALLMAN $300,000 bond.He is charged with two counts of first-degree rape. The charges involve a juvenile female with whom
Hallman was acquainted, police said. The sexual assaults are believed to have occurred over a two-year period. Hallman was arrested Friday after Cabarrus sheriff’s deputies helped Concord investigators locate and stop a vehicle he was a passenger in near the intersection of Jim Sossoman Road and Bethel Church Road in the Midland area. The arrest occurred at about 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Hallman did not resist officers and was taken into custody without incident.

Brandon Payne died in 2001, losing a lengthy battle with diabetes. As Marge transformed the landscape around their house, she traveled often to Godley’s Garden Center in Salisbury for plants and other materials. She hauled things back to Kannapolis in an old Buick Regal that Brandon pretty much designated as her garden car. Once, because of all the red clay Marge was dealing with, Brandon had a load of top soil delivered and dumped in the yard. “He said he bought that for me to play in,” Marge recalls.

They also say he didn’t show up to a public hearing about the house months before it was demolished. Penny says he’s looking for a lawyer to take his case.
As Payne walks slowly through her garden today, she speaks of her favorite hostas; the best times to trim bushes; how alkaline and acid in the soil changes the color of flow- a Moon Glow hydrangea is among the plants ers; the ansurrounding Payne’s home tique bell that has traveled with her to Woodleaf, Charlotte, Gastonia, Salisbury and Kannapolis; the basin that was Grandmother Wetmore’s chicken trough; the birdhouse her 90-year-old brother, John Canupp, built for her; and the always hungry koi in her small pond. “It’s such a joy,” Marge says, taking it all in. It’s that kind of garden.

For four years, Marge kept telling Brandon she wanted a gazebo in the backyard, but how they would manage to move one into the tight quarters was always a stumbling block. Someone suggested that she drop in a gazebo by helicopter. Cowan finally mentioned that maybe they could take down the fence and come into the yard over a neighbor’s property. Brandon (and the neighbor) accepted that idea, and Marge’s favorite gazebo was delivered. It took four hours to maneuver around trees and put it in place. “I fell in love with it when I saw it,” Marge says. Payne honed her gardening skills by enrolling in Rowan County’s Master Gardeners program in 1998. But she missed out on the association’s scheduled trip to England when Brandon became sick. She says she wishes Darrell Blackwelder could see her garden now.

DARTS AND LAURELS
Day to salute The Regulator Rebellion the troops Sign ordinance was a battle worth fighting Laurels on Armed Forces Day to all those who are serving or have served in the nation’s military branches. While perhaps not as widely celebrated as Veterans Day or Memorial Day, Armed Forces Day has a long history, having been commemorated on the third Saturday in May since 1950. The event originated to mark the unification of military branches under the Department of Defense. Currently, there are about 1,432,400 military personnel on active duty, with another 846,200 reserve troops. Underscoring the combat stresses many of these servicemembers face, a U.S. military study released this week said there has been a significant decline in the morale of troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Increased exposure to heavy fighting, in part because of recurring deployments, can take a heavy psychological toll, the study says. Troops need support while they’re on active duty, as well as when they come home and transition back into civilian life. • • • Dart to bullying, a nationwide problem that needs to be taken seriously, especially in light of high-profile cases involving the suicides of youths and criminal charges against their tormentors. You can learn more about the problem and help be part of the solution this weekend in Salisbury by attending an anti-bullying rally at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Bell Tower. The event was organized by North Rowan student Megan Braun; Rowan County Sheriff Kevin Auten is among the scheduled speakers. • • • Laurels to the bald eagles enjoying life at High Rock Lake and downstream reservoirs. The existence of their nesting sites isn’t just good news for these majestic birds, once facing possible extinction; it’s also a good barometer for measuring the overall environmental health of their breeding and feeding grounds. Down to a single breeding pair of eagles a few decades ago, North Carolina now has upwards of 80 pairs, according to a recent survey. Unfortunately, while wildlife managers, conservationists, sportsmen and others have done their part to insure the preservation of bald eagles, the birds still face a threat from senseless acts of destruction. While we were celebrating our regional eagle population, wildlife authorities were investigating the shooting of a young bald eagle found dead earlier this month in Haywood County.

y brother called, as he does on all “special occasions” — my birthday, Christmas or halftime of a Clemson football game — to wish me happy Mother’s Day. “I know you’re not my mama,” he said, lest I forget. “My mama is up in heaven singing with the angels. But I can still wish other mothers a happy Mother’s Day. I called our big sister, too.” SHARON “You called RANDALL Bobbie first?” He always calls her first. He likes her more than he likes me. “Yes,” he said, chuckling, “I did. But I’m calling you now.” In other words, get over it. Then he added, “Sister, I’ve got some very sad news.” My brother has always had a flare for the dramatic. He likes to take his time telling a story, setting it up just so before delivering the punch line. He learned it from our mother, who could turn any harmless bit of news into Armageddon. But there have been times when Joe’s “sad news” couldn’t have been sadder — like the day years ago when he called to tell me that his wife, the love of his life, had been diagnosed with cancer and given only months to live. I was hoping this was not one of those times. “What’s up?” “Well,” he said, “at church today, Brother Charles announced he’s retiring.” Brother Charles is the pastor of a small country church where Joe has been a member for years. More than a place of worship, it has been Joe’s second home; and more than friends, Brother Charles and others in the congregation have been Joe’s second family. It’s a kind of relationship that would mean a lot to most of us, but to my brother, it is precious and sacred. Blind from birth and severely handicapped by cerebral palsy, Joe grew up with a stubborn independence that would at times cause my mother to double up on her nerve pills. Joe is easy to love, but hard to befriend. He has rules that you follow, or else. For example, do not take his arm to steady him when he walks. Instead, hold out your elbow, allow him to take it, and let him lead you where he will with his cane. Never try to talk to him when a Clemson game is on the radio. If you leave a message, he will call you back, unless Clemson loses and leaves him too mad to talk. I’ve known my brother forever and still don’t know all his rules. But Brother Charles got them from the get-go. He knew just what to do, the right way, the right place, the right time. For years, he drove Joe to church twice every Sunday, morning and evening, and every Wednesday night. He preached sermons that fed Joe’s soul, and he seated him at potlucks that fed his belly. He took him to visit shut-ins and let him know the blessing of being the love of God to others more needy than he. He stood by Joe through the deaths of his mother, his wife and his father, and comforted him in his loss, time and again. More than a pastor, Brother Charles has been Joe’s “brother” and best friend. To Joe’s family (his favorite big sister and me, the one who lives in Sin City), Brother Charles is a saint. “I’m going to miss him,” Joe said. “I surely will.” I will miss him, too. There are countless others — “brothers” and “sisters” who quietly spend their lives moving mountains large and small to be God’s love wherever it is needed in a weary old world that’s never needed it more than now. Their reward, Joe says, awaits them in heaven when they sing with the angels. I hope so. But I think, while they’re waiting, they deserve at least a little advance down here. • • • Contact Sharon Randall at www.sharonrandall.com.
he Regulator Rebellion of the 1760s was an effort to rid North Carolina of tyrannical and corrupt leaders. Recently as I read bloggers on the Salisbury Post website rebelling (most anonymously) in cyberspace over sign ordinances related to one downtown business, I was reminded of how far we as a city have improved our apRANDY pearance, HEMANN thanks to the efforts of community leaders before us. In the 1970s and 1980s, battles over the sign ordinance were vicious. In the end, those who were concerned with community appearance won, and because of the courage of those who sought reasonable regulation, Salisbury is a much more attractive and vibrant city. A quick look at East Innes, our primary connection to the rest of the world, bears out the fact that good design and improved business go hand in hand, as the adjacent photos show. The same can be said of Downtown Salisbury. In 2001 when a local historic district was adopted and regulations concerning appearance were increased, a few property owners held on to the belief that further regulation would slow development. To the contrary, Downtown Salisbury has witnessed more than $54 million in investment since the district was put in place and reasonable standards were adopted. The mantra that regulation slows development may be true concerning some types of regulation, but the sensible regulation of design and appearance has proven to be a tool to enhance development. Developers invest in areas

where there is stability and certainty. The reasonable regulation of design and appearance offers stability that allows those investing in real estate the understanding that their investment is protected from devaluation caused by poorly designed and poorly executed development. Aside from our experience, there are multiple studies that also bear out the relationship between good design and increased/improved economic development.

LETTERS Barbecue Festival a savory success Last Saturday’s third annual Barbecue Festival was a significant success, and recognition needs to be given to numerous parties for their support. First, the supportive coverage by the Salisbury Post was excellent, and the on-site coverage by reporters accurately captured the fact and spirit of the event. We thank the town of Spencer and its staff for clear and efficient permitting; the landowners for rental of private property; the merchants for co-marketing and all the citizens of Spencer for their warm welcome, support and turnout. Festival volunteers repeatedly created solutions to unforeseen problems and kept all things running smoothly. Without their dedication and enthusiasm, the event could not have happened. Special thanks to Jana Marie Erwin for creating delicious new recipes. Thank you, Community Bank of Rowan, Team Chevrolet, Citizen’s South Bank and Green Energy Barrier for your sponsorships. Congratulations to the barbecue contest winners. The Barbecue Festival is an event to honor the heritage of Salisbury-Rowan barbecue, muscadines and Cheerwine. The event is to promote cultural tourism. It met those goals and will be back again in 2012.
downtown to see that Salisbury benefits economically because of the work of many of the pioneers who understood early on that reasonable regulation is good for business. I would like to personally thank the elected leaders, appointed boards and commissions, city staff and the downtown leadership, during the 1970s and 80s, for their vision, foresight and political courage. Salisbury is a better place because of them. • • • Hemann is executive director of Downtown Salisbury, Inc.

Faith with actions On behalf of the faculty and staff of Isenberg Elementary, I extend a thank you to First United Methodist Church for all its members do for our students and staff. Church members have devoted more than 3,119 hours of their time tutoring and helping our students. They have provided 8,000 meals and donated enough school supplies for more than 600 students. In assisting our families in need, the church
has provided: 143 gift cards, 25 Easter gifts, 35 Thanksgiving baskets. Most importantly, they have donated 2,150 books and purchased Nintendo DS Lites with learning games for our students that need additional assistance. They have made my job as principal a little easier, and it feels comforting knowing that their faith is expressed through their actions. Thanks to both Pastor Steve Haines for his support and Mrs. Jan Dyrholm for her vision and hard work. — Nathan Currie Salisbury

Protecting unborn Dick Taber is absolutely right (May 19 letter). It is heartless for those mean old Republicans to try to prevent the murder of innocent children. After all, none of the women he refers to bear any responsibility for getting pregnant, and there is no chance that there could be a man in the picture who wanted to help any of them make decisions about the child. Certainly, all pregnancies are sure to be life-threatening to the mother. I only hope that someday I can learn to be as caring and sympathetic as he is. — David Wilson Salisbury

Israeli leader won’t budge on border
Former IMF leader leaves jail on bail for luxury apartment NEW YORK (AP) — The former head of the International Monetary Fund was released from a New York City jail after spending nearly a week incarcerated on charges accusing him of trying to rape a hotel chambermaid. Dominique Strauss-Kahn was released from the city Department of Correction custody shortly after 5 p.m. and was handed over to the security firm managing his house arrest. The one-time French presidential candidate posted $1 million cash and $5 million bond Friday, and a judge signed off on an order clearing him to be released from the Rikers Island jail. Strauss-Kahn’s initial housing arrangement hit a snag, and he instead will be housed temporarily in lower Manhattan. Prosecutors said in court Friday that neighbors in the building where he was initially to stay complained about the media attention and refused him. Armed guards will watch over him, and he will also be monitored electronically.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Indicating no progress toward peace, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sat alongside President Barack Obama on Friday and declared that Israel would not withdraw to 1967 borders to help make way for an adjacent Palestinian state. Obama had called on Israel to be willing to do just that a day earlier. The Israeli leader said he would make some concessions but Israel would not go back to the lines from decades earlier because they would be “indefensible.” For his part, Obama said that there were differences of formulations and language but that such disputes are going NETANYAHU to happen “between friends.” The president never mentioned the 1967 borders as the two men talked with reporters. The leaders spoke after a meeting in the Oval Office. Obama said in his speech on Thursday that the United States supports creation of a Palestinian state based on the border lines that existed before the 1967 Six Day War in which Israel forces occupied east Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza — along with mutually agreedto land swaps that could accommodate existing Israeli settlements. The comment on 1967 borders drew angry criticism in Israel, and Netanyahu made clear after meeting with Obama that the idea was unacceptable.

The newly disclosed plot showed that while bin Laden was always scheming for the next big strike that would kill thousands of Americans, he also believed a relatively simpler attack on the oil industry could create a worldwide panic that would hurt Westerners every time they gassed up their cars. U.S. officials said the tanker idea, included in documents found in the compound where bin Laden was killed, was little more than an al-Qaida fantasy.

As passengers and crew lined the wings of the slowlysinking plane, rescue boats rushed to the scene. The plane was submerged up to its windows when they arrived. All 155 people aboard survived. The museum exhibit is scheduled to open next January and will feature taped interviews with passengers and crew. Dorsch said many passengers from the flight will be on hand when the plane arrives in North Carolina. Getting the plane there is requiring a good deal of planning. Toll booths and low overpasses need to be avoided, and Dorsch said the plane may have to avoid the New Jersey Turnpike as a result. A proposed route will take the plane west from the outskirts of Baltimore bypassing most of Virginia, and then through West Virginia before reaching North Carolina, he said.

HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — The trays of food that never got served have been removed, along with some of the seat cushions and the mold from dried river mud. Aside from that, the damaged Airbus A320 jet is largely frozen in time from the day it splashed down safely on the Hudson River in 2009 and gave a country reeling from economic calamity something to cheer about. The US Airways jet has spent the last two years in a hangar just outside Newark at J. Supor and Sons, a company that specializes in large-scale salvage and moving projects. On Friday, crews continued preparations for the plane’s final journey, to an aviation museum in Charlotte, N.C., where it will be on display. The wings of the plane, which are detached, will be moved first, followed by the fuselage in the next two weeks, Carolinas Aviation Museum president Shawn Dorsch told the Associated Press. He said it will take about five days to drive the 120-foot fuselage from New Jersey to North Carolina on a large flatbed truck. The museum, in the city where US Airways Flight 1549 was bound on Jan. 15, 2009, reached an agreement earlier this year to acquire the plane. “We’re really over the moon about this,” Dorsch said Friday as he watched workmen climbing in and out of the back of the plane cabin via a ladder. “We’re not the Smithsonian, so to be able to get something like this is like getting the space shuttle.” Flight 1549 had just taken off from New York’s LaGuardia Airport when a flock of birds struck both engines, shutting them down. The pilot, Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger considered trying to land at nearby Teterboro Airport in New Jersey but quickly realized he wouldn’t be able to make it that far, at one point telling the control tower, “We’re gonna be in the Hudson.”

Mother gets life in prison for killing baby in microwave
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman convicted of killing her month-old baby daughter in a microwave oven was spared the death penalty and sentenced Friday to life in prison without parole. Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Mary Wiseman sentenced China Arnold, 31, of Dayton, who psychologists testified showed no signs of serious mental illness. Arnold declined to make a statement during her sentencing. Arnold was convicted last week of aggravated murder by the same jury that recommended her punishment. Jurors deliberated about six hours Thursday and Friday. Prosecutors say Arnold intentionally put 28day-old Paris Talley in a microwave and turned it on after a fight with her boyfriend. The couple had argued over whether the boyfriend was the infant’s biological father. Defense attorney Jon Paul Rion argued that the evidence pointed as much to the boyfriend as it did to the child’s mother, who Rion said was drunk at the time. After Friday’s hearing, Rion told the Dayton Daily News he would appeal.
The park makes about $65,000 annually from the course, charging $2 for one game or $3 for two. If it is not redesigned, that revenue will be lost along with miniature golf at Dan Nicholas Park.

North Rowan wins 1A track championship
jon c. lakey/SALISBURY POST
North Rowan coach Robert Steele is all smiles as his Cavalier boys track team celebrates its 1A state championship in Greensboro on Friday.
Oglesby helps legendary coach to another crown BY PAUL HERSHEY firstname.lastname@example.org
jon c. lakey/SALISBURY POST
North Rowan's Johnny Oglesby was named MVP.
GREENSBORO — A strategically placed single bench sat behind the podium on the infield of North Carolina A&T's Irwin Belk track, serving as a place for athletes to wait before they received their medals. If it seemed like North Rowan's Johnny Oglesby spent much of his time on a sunny Friday afternoon making use of that bench, that's because he did. Oglesby won three individual titles, Garland Archie added two of his own and the Cavaliers' depth overwhelmed the field to win the NCHSAA 1A state championship by 33 points — and it only got that close at the end. "The guys have enjoyed a great season and they came today focused to get the win and they did the things that they had to do to be successful," North coach Robert Steele said. "I think we came through most everywhere we thought we would. We ran well and we threw well and we jumped well. The kids just performed at a real high level so I'm real happy for them. "It's always great to win a state championship." It's the first 1A boys crown for North, but the 10th state title overall in the last 17

taling seven event titles and racking up 116 points. Defending champion North Carolina School of Science and Math was a distant second with 83.
"You never know coming into a state championship," Steele said. "I knew that Science and Math was good and Hendersonville was good and several other teams would present a challenge. But our guys rose to the occasion today and just performed at a real high level. My hat's off to them." None were better than Oglesby, who took first place in the 110 and 300 hurdles along with the long jump to earn Most Valuable Performer honors. "This is what we wanted to do and we came out here and did it," Oglesby said. "I'm just happy. I worked hard all year and I guess I got what I deserve. (The work) really did pay off. "I thank my coaches most out of everybody. My coaches pushed me and I just did what they tell me to do and it got us a championship." Archie got the Cavs off a fast start by winning the shot put and discus, and with Sam Starks' victory in the triple jump, North claimed four of the six field events. The 4x100 relay team of Titus King, Daylon Gray, Darius Jackson and Jamone Kelly provided the other event win. Oglesby was only seeded ninth in the long jump, but his leap of 21-11 1⁄2 was an inch

North softball falls From staff reports North Rowan’s softball season ended with a 4-0 loss at East Wilkes on Friday in the second round of the 1A state playoffs. “The girls played their tails off, but in the end it came down to a pitchers’ duel and errors,” North coach Jeff Shuping said. “We made two; they made none. I am very proud of the way my girls battled to the end after a couple of extremely questionable calls.” A diving catch by third baseman Lindsey Hinson on a bunt attempt would have resulted in a double play, but Hinson was ruled not to have held onto the ball. East Wilkes scored a run on the play. North pitcher Samantha Jacobs struck out nine, walked three and allowed two hits. Taylor Sells and Emily Gobble had the only hits for the Cavaliers. North batters struck out 13 times. Four-year starter Kristin Harmon caught for the last time for the Cavaliers. West Rowan’s season ended with an 8-1 loss to Robinson.

NCAA-UNC CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina says the NCAA has made another visit to campus. Team spokesman Kevin Best confirms investigators returned this week as part of the ongoing investigation into the football program. ESPN.com, citing anonymous sources, is reporting the NCAA talked to defensive end Quinton Coples about his attendance at a post-NFL draft party earlier this month in Washington also attended by ex-teammates Marvin Austin and Robert Quinn. Photos of Coples, Austin and Quinn surfaced online. According to the report, the NCAA wants to know how Coples paid for his trip and whether he accepted food or drink.

Busch on pole Associated Press
CONCORD — Kyle Busch’s success in nearly every level of NASCAR hasn’t included the All-Star race. A nearly flawless qualifying performance Friday night puts him in good position of collecting that $1 million payday for the first time. Busch, who was fastest in practice earlier in the day, completed the unique threelap qualifying that included a mandatory four-tire pit stop in 1 minute, 59.19 seconds to earn the pole for Saturday’s race. Now can he finally break through in NASCAR’s richest event? “This race, everybody says it suits Kyle Busch,” he said. “We all know why: We can go fast ... and you either bring back the steering wheel or the check. Unfortunately, I’ve been very successful in bringing back the steering wheel.” Busch has won 96 races in NASCAR’s top three divisions, but has had little success in the non-points AllStar event at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He’s failed to finish in four of his five starts with one top-10 finish. But the No. 18 Toyota was the fastest all day Friday. Add a friendly qualifying draw in which he went last
The NBA notebook ... DALLAS — Take a sweep of the Lakers, a nine-day layoff and a dominant outing by Dirk Nowitzki in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, and it's understandable why the Dallas Mavericks may have started thinking too highly of themselves. Losing Game 2 at home to a team that played four subs nearly the entire fourth quarter should be a strong dose of humility. "I'm not going to say a loss is ever good, because I don't ever like to lose. It doesn't do well for my sleep pattern," Dallas center Tyson Chandler said Friday. "But sometimes you need to get hit on the chin and get woke up. Last night, they hit us on the chin. Hopefully, that woke us up." Game 3 in Oklahoma City is tonight. UPBEAT BULLS CHICAGO — By the numbers, the Chicago Bulls easily could have been blown out by Miami in Game 2 of the
Eastern Conference finals. They weren't, though. Even though MVP Derrick Rose struggled, even though they got outshot and outrebounded, and even though LeBron James and Dwyane Wade played more like superstars, the Bulls were in it until the end. So maybe that's one positive they can take from their 85-75 loss on Wednesday. Game 3 is Sunday. "We're going to have to make corrections, learn from it, and do a whole lot better down there," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "Defensively we have to do a lot better. We have to clean a lot of things up." COMBINE CHICAGO — Potential NBA rookies know they could be locked out. They just don't know yet exactly what they'll do if that happens. They've got plans, though. "We know for sure there's a lockout," San Diego State forward Kawhi Leonard said Friday. "Nobody knows right now how far it will go or what's really going to happen.
Kyle Busch raises the trophy in victory lane. NASCAR debut ended with a respectable 15th-place finish despite a couple of scrapes with the wall in the No. 15 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports. Bowyer had the lead on a restart with 23 laps to go as a charging Busch moved into second. Busch then set his sights on Bowyer, getting on his bumper with eight laps to go. Busch passed him on the inside a lap later for his first lead of the night. Bowyer, making his second Trucks start of the season, overcame a brush with the wall with two laps left, but couldn’t get any closer. “It was too loose all day long,” Bowyer said of his truck. “I knew in practice we were going to have our hands full.” James Buescher was fourth, and Ron Hornaday Jr. recovered from his own spin to finish fifth — then went nose-to-nose with sixthplace finisher Johnny Sauter on pit road on a night that featured a record-tying 10 cautions and hot tempers. “He thought I blocked him,” Hornaday said. “I don’t know what the heck happened. He didn’t know I was three-wide.”
Junior wants to race ‘his way’ Associated Press
CONCORD— Dale Earnhardt Jr. doesn’t really want to watch the All-Star race on television at home while drinking a beer. But in saying last week he’d be OK doing that should he fail to qualify for Saturday night’s $1 million race, Earnhardt gave the impression he didn’t much care to participate. That’s not how he meant it, he insisted Friday. “I did probably not word that correctly and gave people the wrong impression I guess; I do care about being here,” he said. “I’m unassuming about my role and accept my fate whatever it might be. We’re going to go out there and try to run hard.” Earnhardt is no longer guaranteed a starting spot in Saturday night’s field because his 10-year exemption for winning the race in 2000

as the track cooled and Busch knocked Clint Bowyer (1:59.67) to the outside of the front row for the 100-lap shootout. “That Kyle Busch is a pain in everybody’s butt, isn’t he?” Bowyer said, smiling. “He’s pretty good.” Greg Biffle qualified third, followed by Carl Edwards and Mark Martin. “That’s a fun, fun qualifying effort,” Bowyer said. “It’s nerve-racking on everybody’s part.” After being the fastest on the track, Busch had to lock his brakes to get under the speed limit entering pit road. His crew then changed four tires without getting any time penalties for his second pole in this event. It was a bit of vindication from the crew, which was the top seed for Thursday’s Pit Crew Challenge before being knocked out in the second round. “It’s a huge morale booster for the team. They know they’re No. 1,” Busch said of his crew. “I know they’re No. 1.” Tony Stewart, who was celebrating his 40th birthday, qualified sixth, followed by Kasey Kahne, Juan Pablo Montoya, Jamie McMurray, Ryan Newman, Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon. Denny Hamlin, will start 15th.
CONCORD — Kyle Busch didn’t have the fastest truck and got into early trouble by spinning out. Busch, though, is convinced he got some unique help to secure a dizzying 97th victory in NASCAR’s top three circuits. With the name and picture of a slain North Carolina girl on his truck, Busch recovered to pass Clint Bowyer with seven laps to go and pulled away Friday night to win his third consecutive Trucks Series race. Busch honored Zahra Baker, a 10-year-old girl with disabilities who was reported missing from her Hickory home last October. Police eventually found some of her remains in searches around western North Carolina. Her stepmother has been charged with second-degree murder. “I had an angel riding with me,” Busch said. “We didn’t have the truck to beat tonight. (Bowyer) did. Somehow I found some more out of it. I’m going to say I had some help tonight.” Hours after capturing the pole for Saturday’s All-Star race, Busch outdueled a fellow Sprint Cup regular down the stretch to break a tie with Mark Martin for fifth place on the NASCAR national series victory list and move into a tie with Dale Earnhardt and Darrell Waltrip for third. “It feels good to be getting close to 100,” Busch said. He has 21 Sprint Cup victories, 48 in Nationwide and 28 in Trucks. Cole Whitt finished third in the wreck-filled race and the 19-year-old became the first rookie and the youngest driver to hold the points lead. Former Formula One champion Kimi Raikkonen’s
I'm just staying focused on myself and try to get better." The NBA draft is scheduled for June 23 and the league could shut down as early as July 1 when a labor agreement between the league and players expires at the end of June. Florida State forward Chris Singleton said he'll train privately during a hiatus and resume classes to finishing his degree. "I'm 21 hours short and I intend to go back to school," Singleton said. "School is very important to me, my mom always preached it and I know I've got to do it for her because I'm the first in my family to go to college." Leonard and Singleton are among 54 potential draftees participating in two days of pre-draft evaluations in Chicago.

Now he must either race his way into the event in a pre-race qualifier, or fill the spot selected by a fan vote. The fan vote, Earnhardt explained, is “a tricky subject.” He’s the eight-time defending winner of NASCAR’s most popular driver contes. Many teams used social media last year to lobby for their drivers, but Earnhardt being part of the voting field led to drastically scaled down campaigning this year. That hasn’t affected the voting, though: Totals were closing in on a record 2 million votes, with Earnhardt listed among the top five-vote getters. The others are AJ Allmendinger, Bobby Labonte, Joey Logano and Brian Vickers.

BOONE — A committee studying whether Appalachian State should move its football program to the top level of Division I has decided to delay making its recommendation. The school announced Friday that the panel would not meet the May deadline. It wants to continue studying the impact of potential tuition increases on athletic scholarship costs and changing membership in conferences around the country. No new target date was announced. Appalachian State began discussing a move from the Championship Subdivision to the Bowl Subdivision last fall. The Mounaineers won three straight FCS national titles from 2005-07, have captured six straight Southern Conference titles and have led the FCS in regularseason home attendance four straight years.

North Rowan's Sam Starks flies through the air during the long jump. Starks had a big day, winning the triple jump and scoring points in four events.
1A CHAMPS FROM 1B better than his regional jump and an inch and half better than the rest of the state field. He surprised very few, himself included, by dusting the competition in the two hurdles events, with times of 14.62 and 38.71. "I kind of knew that was going to be the outcome, but I still had to work hard," he said. "You've still got to push yourself. You can be the best, but that doesn't mean you're the best that day." The time in the 300 was just .13 seconds off the meet record, his lone disappointment on an otherwise stellar day, but one that he took hard. "He's a kid who competes with a passion," Steele said. "After completing his 300 hurdles he was headed back to where the team was and he broke down and started to cry. I asked him 'What are you crying about?' and his answer was 'I did not break the state record.’ ” Archie's winning throw in the shot put of 49-91⁄2 came on his first attempt, while the decisive toss in the discus of 1447 came on his next to last attempt. "They weren't my furthest throws, but I won with them," he said. "It wasn't my best day, but it was a good day, to come out and win both events and score 20 points because most people aren't doing that." The discus win also provided redemption from a disappointing performance in the event last year when, like this year, he was seeded first, but ended up finishing 11th. "I couldn't repeat the same mistakes twice," he said. "I just came out and corrected my mistakes from last year. I gained my composure and did what I had to do."

North’s Johnny Oglesby leaves his competitors behind as he wins the 300 hurdles. He also took the 110 hurdles. Starks, who added a state track title to the basketball championship he was a part of in the the winter, had a strong all around day. Aside from the win in the triple jump (45-4), he was runner-up to Oglesby in the 110 hurdles (15.06) and fourth in the long jump (21-31⁄2). He was also part of
the 4x200 relay team that took second (1:30.03). King, Gray and Jackson joined him on that squad that held the lead after three legs before being overtaken by West Montgomery. Jackson added a fourthplace finish in the discus, Neegbeah Reeves was fifth in
the 1600 meters, Javon Hargrave placed fifth in the shot put and Kelly took seventh in the 100 meters. "We didn't drop many things performance-wise that we were supposed to do," Steele said. "That's always key in a state championship. You try to make sure that you don't
lose any places that you're supposed to get. The boys were real sharp." • NOTES: The only event in which North missed out on expected points was the high jump. Malik Ford settled for ninth after placing first in the regional.
The North Carolina School of Science and Math earned 28 points in the last two events to make the gap smaller than it had been almost all day. ... For Rowan County, it was the seventh state title this year and 17th in the past three. Rowan prep teams have won 29 state championships since 2000.

Hendersonville nips North BY PAUL HERSHEY email@example.com
GREENSBORO — Friday was full of mixed emotions for North Rowan's girls track team at the 1A state meet. The Cavaliers won three event titles, Meloney Ramos claimed four top-four finishes and the 4x100 relay team broke its own meet record. However, that all seemed somewhat hollow because none of it led to North's ultimate goal of winning a repeat team championship. An uncharacteristically tough day for standout Teaunna Cuthbertson left the door open and Hendersonville took advantage with its distance strength late in the day and rallied to beat the defending champions by nine points. Hendersonville scored 19 points in the 3200 meters, the second to last event, and finished with 84 for the meet. North had to settle for second with 75, while Monroe was third with 67. "I knew it was going to be close meet going in," North coach Robert Steele said. "I knew Hendersonville and Monroe were going to be factors. It was close all day and Hendersonville had just a little bit too much for us today. "There were some things that we just didn't quite get done today. It's a group that won last year and sometimes you go through that transition of being a champion because the champion becomes the hunted. Sometimes it's as not easy to keep that emotional lift that you need to be successful." The Cavs were heavily re-

North Rowan's Meloney Ramos was the meet MVP as she placed in the top four of four events. liant on Ramos and Cuthbertson for their point production and while the former had an outstanding day, it certainly wasn't the best for the latter. Cuthbertson did earn a repeat title in the long jump, but
struggled to sixth-place finishes in the 100 hurdles and triple jump. "Right now, I feel very, very bad," she said. "I feel like we didn't accomplished anything. We accomplished some,
but I feel like we could've done better. I felt like we could (win) it again." Ramos claimed the 100 hurdles title, was runner-up in the long jump and triple jump and placed fourth in the 300 hurdles. She totaled 31 points by herself, earning her Most Valuable Performer honors. However, even that didn't seem to make up for a missed opportunity at her first team state championship. "Overall I did pretty good," said Ramos, who was part of Salisbury's runner-up finish in 2A last season. "We should've been first, but it didn't turn out that way. "To be honest, I haven't won a state title as a team any of my high school years so it's disappointing going out without a ring." The day started out as expected for the Cavs as Cuthbertson and Ramos went 1-2 in the long jump. Cuthbertson's jump of 17-10, was an inch and a quarter better than her teammate's. "The long jump wasn't about winning," said Cuthbertson. "It was about me and my teammate going 1-2. That's what we came out here to do." However, Cuthbertson's day turned for the worse in the 100 hurdles. She started well out of the blocks, but hit a hurdle at the midway point and lost ground as she tried to recover. "I was leading and I don't know how, but my foot hit the hurdle and I stumbled trying to get my speed back up and couldn't get it together," she said. Ramos, meanwhile, took over the lead and surged to the finish, clocking a time of

"It should've been 1-2 with me and Teaunna," Ramos said. Cuthbertson hoped to bounce back in the triple jump, but her leap of 35-1 was just behind teammate Tinka Bush, who placed fifth (35-31⁄2). Ramos' jump of 35-7 gave her second. "I really don't know what happened," Cuthbertson said of the event. "Honestly, I was thinking 1-2-3 with my other teammates, but it didn't go as planned. I tried the best I can. I guess my best wasn't hard enough." The day wasn't a total loss for her, though, as she anchored the 4x100 relay team that set a meet record for the second straight year. Christen Jones gave the Cavs a strong start, Tianca White kept it going in the second leg, Tameisha Allen increased the gap in the third and Cuthbertson closed it out, racing not against this field, but their
own time of 49.48 from a year ago. The new mark was set at 48.31. "That meant a lot to us," Cuthbertson said. "We've never run that fast before so when we looked at it it was like 'wow, is that North Rowan? Is that us?’ ” Ramos then finished off her day with the fourth-place finish (47.42) in the 300 hurdles. She started out strong, but Monroe's Janieyah Collins came on strong to pull away. "The 300 hurdles I felt good coming out of the blocks and about midway, I thought I could turn it up a little bit, but towards the end I died," Ramos said. "I was too tired and there was too much going on today." Bush added a third-place finish (26.11) in the 200 meters and was part of the 4x200 relay team that was runner-up to Monroe. Jones, Allen and Akevia Charleston combined with Bush to finish in 1:43.74. However, those points weren't enough when Hendersonville placed three in the top four of the 1600 meters and three in the top five of the 3200 meters, and capped the meet with a runner-up finish in the 4x400 relay. "They did very well in the mile and I'm sitting there thinking to myself they're probably also going to do very well in the two-mile," Steele said. "And sure enough they did and that created just enough of a margin. "We came up a little bit short today on the girls side, but we've had a good year and we've got some things to look forward to and hopefully we'll get better."

BASEBALL FROM 8B
Tyler Buckwell /the SALISBURY POSt
North Rowan’s hunter Feezor had two hits against east Surry.
A sacrifice bunt moved Johnson to second base Devin Slate dropped a double down the right-field line. With runners at second and thir, Aaron Ewbanks ripped a scorching line drive back to the box. The ball deflected off Brown’s glove and skipped past second base, allowing both runners to race home. “If Dakota catches that ball, we probably win the game,” Rimer said. “That’s not a play you expect somebody to make. But with Dakota, he’s made plays nobody expected him to make his whole life.” The hit made Brown (2-2) a losing pitcher in his final varsity game. He took over for starter Dusty Agner and struck out six batters in four innings, but his season-ending ERA ballooned to 1.69. “I thought we were gonna come out here and they wouldn’t be much of a problem,” said Brown. “But they put up a good fight. Everybody knows we should have won, but a couple of things didn’t go our way.” Rimer was most disturbed about the Cavs’ offense. “We did not take good approaches at the plate,” he said. “It’s like we wanted to hit three-run homers instead of just shooting the gaps.” Despite all of North Rowan’s success this season, this was a loss that will leave a stain. “We have a saying on our team,” Mauldin noted. “If it doesn’t happen, it probably wasn’t supposed to happen.” • NOTES: East Surry will host South Stanly in a fourth-round game on Tuesday. ... North scored six unearned runs against ES starter Jordan
Taylor is also ranked second in the 400 meters and sixth in the long jump. Johnson likes his team when the pressure’s on. “When it comes to big meets, we’ve never really had too many issues of not performing or stepping up,” he said. “It’s simple. The girls have to go out and run the race they’ve run all year.” Carrboro, with excellent distance people, and Bunn, with the sprinters, should give the girls their toughest tests. But the Salisbury boys will also be in the back of the Hornets’ minds. “They’ve been sitting behind the boys for two years,” Johnson said. “They get more motivation from our boys winning and getting the limelight. They want to be successful like they are.” • Fans were shocked to see that Morris didn’t win the 100 or 200 in the regional last week. The defending state champ has nursing a hamstring tweak. How is Morris going into the state meet? “We’ll find out (today),”

White crushed a homer to center in the first to give herself a lead to work with. “I don’t know how that hap-

“We looked really good today,” said upbeat senior center fielder Kayla Kirk. “They’re a good-hitting team, but they didn’t get a lot of hits. I think that was our best defensive game.” Right fielder Jesse Rummage made a running catch in foul territory to end the fourth and another grab at full gallop to end the ballgame. “Our outfielders flew to the ball,” East coach Mike Waddell said. “Kudos all around. We made some great plays.” Courtney Lyerly, the “flex” player who is not in the batting order, made the play of the game sprinting toward the left-field fence in the fifth. East was leading 2-0 but Fain was at first with one out when Ali Hartsell jumped all over a pitch. It looked like a potential homer when it left the bat, but Lyerly, whose brother Craige starred for East and Catawba baseball before being drafted by Tampa Bay, made a terrific snag. Fain was well past second when the catch was made. She failed to retouch the bag when

GRANITE QUARRY — East Rowan pitcher Chelsea White E. Rowan 3 is always honest, and C. Cabarrus 0 she had to admit she was pretty decent in the circle in Friday’s second-round 3A playoff game. Asked what was working for her, White shrugged and offered, “There were none of my pitches that weren’t working.” White’s repertoire has as much variety as a box of chocolates. She employed six different offerings to fan nine and beat Central Cabarrus 3-0. Assistant coach Lonnie Barrier made the calls as far as pitch selection, and White and batterymate Bobbi Thomas mixed it up so well they only had to face 20 hitters.

deemed safe on a bang-bang play at first. “We’re very familiar with Chelsea and knew what we would be dealing with,” Central coach Doug Buckwell said. “What was uncharacteristic about us today was that we took so many called third strikes on the outside corner. That’s not something we ordinarily do. Eight of our girls have hit home runs. We’re a team that puts the bat on the ball.” Central (17-8) is young (one senior), but good. A No. 3 seed, the Vikings contended with Robinson and Northwest Cabarrus for the SPC title down to the final week of the regular season. “Our league had five good teams that were all about equal,” Buckwell said. The bad news for the Vikings was they caught East (22-2) on a day when the Mustangs likely would have beaten anyone. Not only was White on top of her game, the Mustangs turned in four exceptional defensive plays.

Boys will defend 2A crown today BY RONNIE GALLAGHER firstname.lastname@example.org
SALISBURY — The Salisbury girls track team has something to motivate it in today’s 2A state championship meet at N.C. A&T in Greensboro: The boys team. The Romar Morris-led Hornet boys won the state title last year while the girls came in MORRIS second. T h i s time, the roles are reversed. The girls, who cruised to a regional championship last week, are the prohibitive favorite. The boys, on the other hand, are facing ultra-talented Berry Academy, who beat the Hornets by 53 points in the regional. “They have so much talent over so many events,” Salisbury boys coach Darius Bryson said of Berry. “When they’re at full strength, they probably have the top four relays in 2A. When you’ve got that, that’s tough to beat.” • Salisbury’s girls should start strong with the field events and take an early lead, thanks to senior Alisha Bradshaw. She is the No. 1 seed in the shot and discus. “ S h e h a s thrown the shot 42 feet, which is four or five feet better than the next,” said girls BRADSHAW c o a c h D a v i d Johnson. “She’s thrown the discus 140 and that’s about 20 feet over the next competitor. I’m really expecting her to do well.” Emily Shields is the No. 1 seed in the 800 meters and is also a member of the fourthseeded E. SHIELDS 4x400 relay team, along with Summer Taylor, Ayanna Holmes and Talina Ross.

North falls in eight Cavaliers fail to deliver in the clutch BY DAVID SHAW email@example.com
SPENCER — The county’s last-teamE. Surry 9 standing is N. Rowan 7 standing no more. Upstart North Rowan used its final lifeline Friday night when it bowed out of the 1A state playoffs, falling 9-7 in eight innings to visiting East Surry. “Nobody ever thinks a game is gonna play out like that,” coach Aaron Rimer said after the Cavs (22-7) suffered a draining, third-round knockout. “It was a wild one.” What a long, strange trip it was for North, which stranded 16 baserunners, nine of them in scoring position. While the Cavs punched out 11 hits — and even prevailed in a controversial, seventh-inning argument — they repeatedly failed to deliver in clutch situations. Tyler Buckwell /the SALISBURY POSt “That describes the whole North Rowan’s Alex Morgan prepares to swing at a pitch from game for us,” senior Matt Mauldin said. “We got hits like east Surry. Morgan scored a run for the Cavs.

Cavalier Matt Mauldin is welcomed home. we always do. But when we needed it most, when we had runners on base, we stopped hitting. ” North loaded the bases with one away in the bottom of the first inning but couldn’t produce a run. It left three more runners aboard after ty-
ing the score in the last of the seventh. Finally, in the eighth it had runners at the corners when Tyler Wyatt took a season-ending called third strike. “I’ve been around a long time, but I’ve never seen a game like that,” said East Surry coach Barry Hall, a 36-year vet with more than 600 career wins printed on the back of his bubble-gum card. “Neither team would give in or give up. It’s a shame someone had to lose.” ES (20-9) advanced after scoring a pair of eighth-inning runs against North reliever Dakota Brown. The inning opened when Ryan Johnson (3-for-4, 3 RBIs) chopped a ground ball toward second base. But North infielders Jake Smith and Josh Mock collided on the play and Johnson reached safely. “The way that ball was hit, I don’t think either one of them could have made a play,” Rimer said. “He would have been safe regardless.”

Apocalypse now...? End of the world today? How about a party instead? BY TOM BREEN Assolciated Press
For some, it’s Judgment Day. For others, it's party time. A loosely organized Christian movement has spread the word around the globe that Jesus Christ will return to earth on Saturday to gather the faithful into heaven. While the Christian mainstream isn't buying it, many other skeptics are milking it. A Facebook page titled “Post rapture looting” offers this invitation: “When everyone is gone and god’s not looking, we need to pick up some sweet stereo equipment and maybe some new furniture for the mansion we're going to squat in.” By Wednesday afternoon, more than 175,000 people indicated they would be “attending” the “public event.” The prediction is also being mocked in the comic strip “Doonesbury” and has inspired “Rapture parties” to celebrate what hosts expect will be the failure of the world to come to an end. In the Army town of Fayetteville, the local chapter of the American Humanist Association has turned the event into a two-day extravaganza, with a Saturday night party followed by a day-after concert. “It's not meant to be insulting, but come on,” said organizer Geri Weaver. “Christians are openly scoffing at this.” The prediction originates with Harold Camping, an 89year-old retired civil engineer from Oakland, Calif., who founded Family Radio Worldwide, an independent ministry that has broadcast his prediction around the world. The Rapture — the belief that Christ will bring the faithful into paradise prior to a period of tribulation on earth that precedes the end of time — is a relatively new notion compared to Christianity itself, and most Christians don’t believe in it. And even believers rarely attempt to set a date for the event. Camping’s prophecy comes from numerological calculations based on his reading of the Bible, and he says global events like the 1948 founding of Israel confirm his math. He has been derided for an earlier apocalyptic prediction in 1994, but his followers say that merely referred to the end of “the church age,” a time when human beings in Christian churches could be saved. Now, they say, only those outside what they regard as irredeemably corrupt churches can expect to ascend to heaven. Camping is not hedging this time: “Beyond the shadow of a doubt, May 21 will be the date of the Rapture and the day of judgment,” he said in January. Such predictions are nothing new, but Camping’s latest has been publicized with exceptional vigor — not just by Family Radio but through like-minded groups. They’ve spread the word using radio, satellite TV, daily website updates, billboards, subway ads, RV caravans hitting dozens of cities and missionaries scattered from Latin America to Asia. “These kinds of prophecies are constantly going on at a low level, and every once in a while one of them gets traction,” said Richard Landes, a Boston University history professor who has studied such beliefs for more than 20 years. The prediction has been publicized in almost every
““These kinds of prophecies are constantly going on at a low level, and every once in a while one of them gets traction.” RICHARD LANDES Boston U. history professor
country, said Chris McCann, who works with eBible Fellowship, one of the groups spreading the message. “The only countries I don’t feel too good about are the ‘stans’ — you know, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, those countries in Central Asia,” he said. Marie Exley, who left her home in Colorado last year to join Family Radio’s effort to publicize the message, just returned from a lengthy overseas trip that included stops in the Middle East. She said billboards have gone up in Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq. “I decided to spend the last few days with my immediate family and fellow believers,” Exley said. “Things started getting more risky in the Middle East when Judgment Day started making the news.” McCann plans to spend Saturday with his family, reading the Bible and praying. His fellowship met for the last time on Monday. “We had a final lunch and everyone said goodbye,” he said. “We don't actually know who’s saved and who isn’t, but we won’t gather as a fellowship again.” In Vietnam, the prophecy has led to unrest involving thousands of members of the Hmong ethnic minority who gathered near the border with Laos earlier this month to await the May 21 event. The government, which has a long history of mistrust with ethnic hilltribe groups like the Hmong, arrested an unidentified number of “extremists” and dispersed a crowd of about 5,000. No such signs of turmoil are apparent in the U.S., though many mainstream Christians aren't happy with the attention the prediction is getting. No one will know for sure whether Camping’s prediction is correct until Sunday morning dawns, or fails to dawn. In the meantime, there will be jokes, parties, sermons and — in at least one case— a chance to make a little money. Bart Centre, an atheist from New Hampshire, started Eternal Earth-bound Pets in 2009. He offers Rapture believers an insurance plan for those furry family members that won’t join them in heaven: 10-year pet care contracts, with Centre and his network of fellow non-believers taking responsibility for the animals after the Rapture. The fee — payable in advance, of course — was originally $110, but has gone to $135 since Camping’s prediction. Centre says he has 258 clients under contract, and that business has picked up considerably this year. But he’s not worried about a sales slump if May 21 happens to disappoint believers. “They never lose their faith. They’re never disappointed,” he said. “It reinforces their faith, strangely enough.”

Local pastors weigh in on Harold Camping’s latest doomsday predictions BY KATIE SCARVEY email@example.com
ne wonders if Harold Camping knew how much buzz would be generated through social media when he predicted that Judgment Day would be May 21. Camping’s prophecy has been around for a while, but it’s gained traction in recent months because of the billboards he and his followers have erected around the country. “The Bible guarantees it!” trumpets the Web site of Camping’s Family Radio Worldwide. Camping believes that earthquakes, starting at 6 p.m. around the world, will begin to rock the planet and the righteous will be raptured (if that can be used as a verb) — while the non-righteous (the vast majority) will be left behind in chaos, dying off until the final end of Oct. 21. MARVIN LINDSAY Camping’s prediction rests Seminary student and former pastor of on some convoluted interpretaJohn Calvin Presbyterian Church tions (“infallible proofs”) involving numbers that make the medieval philosophers who argued about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin seem positively logical.

Signs, signs, everywhere This time, Camping says he’s signs.
“In a world of seven billion people, tens of thousands will surely die on Saturday, meaning that their world is over. And that's a reminder that none of us are guaranteed another day. Regardless of predictions, perhaps we should live as if every day were our last. That beats living in the past or worrying about the future.”
Harold camping has a history of Judgment day predictions. One of my FaceBook friends wondered if anyone would be around on Sunday, the day after his birthday, to offer felicitations. “I realize we may all feel a little down knowing we’re doomed to eternal hellfire and damnation,” he wrote, “but hey, let’s try to make the best of a bad situation!” Others worry that they should have taken vacation days earlier in the year. Dr. Randy Kirby, the associate pastor at First Presbyterian, joked at the last session of a year-long Bible study on the book of Revelation that he would be preaching on May 22 to those who were left behind. At the very least, one positive thing coming out of Camping’s lunacy is that a lot of Christians who normally don’t agree on much have found common ground in their assessment that Camping is a bit of a nut case. Many point to the ludicrousness of the idea that Camping — an 89-year-old-old former civil engineer— would be privy to information that even Jesus didn’t have. “I choose to side with Jesus over these who are predicting the return of Christ on the 21st of May,” said the Rev. Jim Dunkin of First Presbyterian Church in Salisbury. “Jesus clearly had something to say about those who try to predict, and I cannot improve on his

Never Tired of Trying New Religions
Meanwhile, right-living people die and no one gives them a thought. God-fearing people are carted off and no one even notices. The right-living people are out of their misery, they’re finally at rest. They lived well and with dignity and now they’re finally at peace. But you, children of a witch, come here! Sons of a slut, daughters of a whore. What business do you have taunting, sneering, and sticking out your tongue? Do you have any idea what wretches you’ve turned out to be? A race of rebels, a generation of liars. You satisfy your lust any place you find some shade and fornicate at whim. You kill your children at any convenient spot— any cave or crevasse will do. You take stones from the creek and set up your sex-and-religion shrines. You've chosen your fate. Your worship will be your doom. You’ve climbed a high mountain to practice your foul sex-and-death religion. Behind closed doors you assemble your precious gods and goddesses. Deserting me, you’ve gone all out, stripped down and made your bed your place of worship. You've climbed into bed with the ‘sacred’ whores and loved every minute of it, adoring every curve of their naked bodies. You anoint your king-god with ointments and lavish perfumes on yourselves. You send scouts to search out the latest in religion, send them all the way to hell and back. You wear yourselves out trying the new and the different, and never see what a waste it all is. You’ve always found strength for the latest fad, never got tired of trying new religions. Who talked you into the pursuit of this nonsense, leaving me high and dry, forgetting you ever knew me? Because I don’t yell and make a scene do you think I don’t exist? I’ll go over, detail by detail, all your ‘righteous’ attempts at religion, and expose the absurdity of it all. Go ahead, cry for help to your collection of no-gods: A good wind will blow them away. They’re smoke, nothing but smoke. But anyone who runs to me for help will inherit the land, will end up owning my holy mountain. Isaiah 57:1-13 (THE MESSAGE)

That’s where God’s truth is found.” Keith Kannenburg, pastor of Blackwelder Park Baptist Church, said Thursday he hadn’t heard of Camping’s doomsday prediction — but he didn’t sound surprised when I filled him in on the details. “This isn’t the first time that people have predicted stuff,” he said, citing the Je-

vah’s Witnesses as an example. Without knowing about the details of the prophecy, Kannenburg speculated that some people are just addicted to sensationalism and the attention that accompanies such a pronouncement. “It’s absolute arrogance to say that you are the special person, that you can pick the date and the time.” He mentioned what Paul had to say in 1 Thessalonians. I looked up the passage and found this: “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are

word “raptor” — hence the idea of a “snatching away.” After certain other events take place, in this view, Christ will reign on earth for 1,000 years. Kannenburg says he does believe that the Rapture will happen in his lifetime but realizes that he could be “seriously wrong,” as Paul was. What’s important, he says, is that “as Christians we should live our lives in such a way that we believe we could be called home at any time. So if somebody is thinking the Rapture is going to happen in their lifetime...we all should be thinking it. If we did, we wouldn’t be living like a bunch of jerks.” “We’re so worried about all of the little petty stuff that doesn’t mean anything that we totally forget there are people that are lost and going to hell and we’re too busy and fighting over stupid junk. “We need to be loving our brothers and sisters and carrying each other ‘s crosses.”

alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” The “we” is important, Kannenburg says, because it indicates that Paul felt the Rapture would happen in his lifetime. Kannenburg says the majority of conservative Baptists in this area likely believe in something called pretribulational Rapture and a pre-millenial return of Christ — but they don’t believe they can predict when it’s going to happen. Kanneburg says he believes that at the Rapture, the spirits of those who have already died will come down to Jesus and their material bodies will be raised from the grave. Then, he says, “almost immediately after, those who are living Christians will be caught up to go with him in the air” — the “snatching away.” The word rapture shares the same Latin root as the

Celebrates the 1st Anniversary of The Norvell Theater Before After
year ago today, a miracle happened. Piedmont Players Theatre (PPT) presented its premiere performance of Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat to a sold out audience at the new Norvell Theater. The miracle didn’t stop there. In the year since, PPT’s youth programming at the Norvell has done nothing but expand in every possible way. The Norvell has housed auditions and 4 youth productions. To respond to the demand, Spring theatre workshops were created in addition to the already existing Winter Drama Workshops. The Norvell also allowed PPT to expand the Summer Theatre Camps. All in all, PPT has provided artistic opportunity and education to 9500 local youth in the Norvell’s first year! The miracle continues this summer with our production of Grease. Piedmont Players Board of Governors and staff would like thank you, the citizens of Rowan County/Salisbury for making all this possible. Specifically, to the following groups and individuals who donated to the ‘Miracle on Fisher Street’.

Burning mouth a hot topic Dear Dr. Gott: I have recently been diagnosed with burning-mouth syndrome. What can you tell me about the cause and treatment? I’ve found Breneton on the Internet. Is this a good treatment to try? Dear Reader: Unfortunately, the cause of this condition can’t always be easily determined. It is thought to be related to problems with taste and sensory nerves of the peripheral or central nervous system; or it might be caused by a nutritional deficiency such as vitamin B, DR. PETER folate, iron or zinc. Direct GOTT links for the disorder can include an oral yeast infection, anxiety, depression, some medications, an underactive thyroid, reflux, hormonal imbalance or irritation to the mouth. Whatever the cause, the pain can affect your lips, tongue, gums, inside of your cheeks, roof of your mouth or all of the above. Symptoms include numbness or tingling of the affected portion of your mouth, pain that worsens as the day progresses, a loss of taste and dry mouth. You may notice an unpleasant metallic taste. Whatever symptom or symptoms you have can occur every day or may come and go. This condition can last for years or may disappear without treatment. Your doctor may choose to
order blood tests, cultures to rule out viral/bacterial/yeast infection, allergy testing or even an MRI or CT to rule out other possible but unidentified health issues. If you suffer from dry mouth, a salivary test can confirm or rule out a reduction in salivary flow. Treatment will depend on your specific symptoms. Mouthwashes, specific antidepressants, B vitamins, capsaicin as a pain reliever or behavioral therapy might be considered. On the home front, experiment with different toothpastes, drink additional fluids, refrain from using tobacco, and avoid foods with cinnamon or mint, as well as those high in acid, such as tomatoes and orange juice. Above all, make an effort to reduce the stress in your life, if appropriate. This might be accomplished with yoga or tai chi. Breneton is a combination of rheum rhabarbarum, Indian olibanum tree, torchwood tree, ginger, operculina turpethum and scammony. My guess is as good as yours whether this will work or not. My guess? No. Dear Dr. Gott: Can you tell me something about a product called ASEA? It is supposed to be a cure-all for pain when you take two ounces twice a day. Is this a fad or does it work? The cost is about $1 per ounce. Dear Reader: ASEA is not promoted as a juice, antioxidant or vitamin but as redoxsignaling molecules in a bottle. Redox-signaling molecules are what your body creates in order to support the vi-
tal functions of the immune system. Pardon me, but what in the heck does that really mean? The ingredients are sodium and chloride (salt and water)! The product is sold in 32ounce bottles and promoted as an immune booster. The recommendation is that a person drinks between four and eight ounces about 20 minutes before exercising on an empty stomach. There is no need for a daily dose to keep your redox level high. You can’t overdose on it, and only need to use it when you know you will exercise strenuously. I’m not sure about the pain-relief connection. As long as you asked, I think this is a fad. Stick with a healthful diet, drink adequate fluids to remain hydrated, exercise in an appropriate manner, and save your money. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including “Live Longer, Live Better,” “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Diet” and “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook,” which are available at most bookstores or online.

Seven trumps may be better than nine Mark Twain said, “I never write Metropolis for seven cents, because I can get the same price for city. I never write policeman, because I can get the same money for cop.” I never play with only seven trumps, because I win more money with nine — but not always. In this deal, how would you plan the play in two different contracts, four spades and five clubs? The defenders begin with three rounds of hearts. It seems normal to reach five clubs. North might raise three clubs to four; but even if he cue-bids three hearts, trying to get into three notrump if you have a heart stopper, you would usually continue with four clubs to show your fifth card in the suit, and North would raise. But, strangely, four spades is a better contract than five

ever, because East overcalled, he is slightly more likely than West to have the club queen. Guess well! In four spades, you must follow the reliable rule that when you do not have a superfluity of trumps, establish your side suit first. After ruffing the third heart, play a club to dummy’s ace and lead a club back toward your hand. If East discards (it cannot help to ruff), win with your king and lead a third round. But if East plays a second low club, put in your jack. Whether West ruffs or wins with the queen, take his return, draw trumps, and claim. clubs. In five clubs, you must guess the trump suit. The odds fractionally favor playing for the drop, especially since it seems East has five hearts to West’s three. How-

A broad area of low pressure will produce more storms across the Central US on Saturday. The system will continue spinning over the Plains, while counter-clockwise flow around it will push a cold front eastward over the Mississippi River Valley and a warm northward into the Upper Midwest and Northern Plains. The system will obtain energy by pulling warm and moist air in from the Gulf of Mexico. Expect widespread scattered showers to develop across the US and Canadian border of the Northern Plains, as well as the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes regions. Meanwhile, the cold front will create periods of severe storms across the Mid- and Lower Mississippi River Valley. This system has a history of producing heavy downpours, large hail, and damaging winds. Expect rainfall totals to range from 1 to 2 inches, up to 3 inches likely in areas of severe storm development. Tornadoes may develop across the region as well. Meanwhile in the East, a low pressure system in the Northeast will finally push offshore and into the Atlantic Ocean. This will bring an end to light and scattered showers across northern New England and the Northeast, as high pressure returns to the region. Most areas across the East Coast will see warm and dry conditions. This will allow for fires to remain a threat across the Southeast. Fire advisories have been issued in southern Georgia and Florida. Out West, a ridge of high pressure dominating the West Coast starts to get shoved eastward by an incoming low pressure system. The system moves into the Pacific Northwest, triggering a few scattered rain showers across Oregon and Washington.

Throw a Successful Pool Party The pool party is a staple of summertime fun. It can tie into a specific holiday or an event, such as a birthday party. Or the pool party can be for no reason other than cooling off from the hot weather. There are a few things you must keep in mind before hosting a pool party. Consider these tips before sending out your invitations.
The Pool Of course you will need to have a pool to host a pool party. But this doesn’t necessarily mean that you must have one in your backyard. You can plan a pool party at a pool club or your local YMCA as well. However, backyard pool parties are often the most convenient. When inviting guests, consider the maximum capacity of the pool. While everyone may not be in the pool at the same time, you want to ensure the swimming experience will be safe. Also, having adequate space in the yard is essential. This way those who are lounging outside of the pool can enjoy themselves, too. In preparation for a pool party, be sure your pool is adequately cleaned. However, you don’t want to overload the pool with too many chemicals directly prior to the party. Guests’ skin or eyes may become irritated if the pool was recently chlorinated. Plus, chemicals can add a green hue to light-colored hair. Right before the party, vacuum and skim the pool so that any debris
or insects can be removed. Make sure you have some pool toys on hand to enhance the fun. Flotation devices, volleyballs and water guns are good ideas. Just don’t overload the pool with too many items or guests won’t have room to swim.
Refreshments Swimming is good exercise, and chances are guests will build up quite an appetite after swimming. However, you don’t want to have foods that will be too heavy in the stomach. Lighter fare such as finger sandwiches, fruit and vegetables, crackers and dip are better ideas. Reserve greasy food, like pizza or hamburgers, for another occasion. Make sure you have plenty of beverages on hand, too. Water, juice and iced tea fit the bill. Steer clear of caffeinated drinks, which can dehydrate. Also, alcohol and swimming don’t really mix, so avoid alcoholic beverages.
Safety When planning a pool party, you’ll have to consider safety. Plan to have one or two individuals who will be responsible for lifeguard duties. These people should have their eyes trained on the swimmers at all times. You can hire a private lifeguard or serve as one yourself if you have first-aid and CPR training. Having life jackets on hand or a rescue float is a good idea. Keep a cordless phone handy to
dial emergency services should an accident occur. For younger children, consider setting up a small, shallow pool so they can play safely. This way they won’t get overrun with adults or older children in the
Activities Plan on activities that can occur in or out of the water. Pool staples such as diving for rings, Marco Polo and volleyball are alOPEN HOUSE SATURDAY 12-2PM

Overall, 71 percent said rising prices will cause some hardship for them and their families. 41 percent call it a “serious” hardship.

Services held for slugger Associated Press PEORIA, Ariz. — Harmon Killebrew’s Hall of Fame career as one of the most powerful sluggers baseball has known was merely a subplot to his story as family and friends gathered to say goodbye. What they recalled most was Killebrew the gentle, caring man who treated all those he encountered with respect. Several hundred mourners, including past and present members of the Minnesota Twins, attended Killebrew’s funeral service at a suburban north Phoenix church on a gorgeous sunny Friday morning. Killebrew, who hit 573 home runs in his long major league career, died Tuesday at his home in Scottsdale, Ariz., of esophageal cancer at 74. Former teammate and fellow Hall of Famer Bert Blyleven had those in attendance stand and cheer Killebrew for an imagined home run No. 574 near the end of the service, and the crowd responded with a rousing effort. But it was Killebrew the man who was celebrated far more than Killebrew the baseball player. The nickname “Killer” didn’t seem to fit a man so kind, his grandson Eric Queathem said. “In his modest and caring way, he always tried to make people feel good about themselves,” Queathem said.
Associated Press BOSTON — Adrian Gonzalez had four of Boston’s 19 hits, adding four RBIs on Friday night as the Red Sox welcomed the Chicago Cubs back to Fenway Park for the first time since 1918 by beating them 15-5. Kevin Youkilis had two doubles and a two-run homer, and Jacoby Ellsbury also had three hits for Boston, which won its seventh consecutive game. The Red Sox are 2210 since losing 10 of their first 12 games; they have passed the New York Yankees for the first time this season, and now trail the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays by just a half-game. Jon Lester (6-1) won his sixth straight decision despite giving up a career-high 12 hits. Jarrod Saltalamacchia also homered for Boston, and Scott Atchison earned his first save with three innings of scoreless relief. Phillies 3, Rangers 2 PHILADELPHIA (— Ben Francisco and Raul Ibanez homered, and Roy Halladay threw eight strong innings to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a victory over the Texas Rangers. Halladay (6-3) struck out seven and walked one for the NL East-leading Phillies. Francisco hit a two-run shot in the second inning and Ibanez hit a solo homer in the fourth to give Halladay the support he needed to end a personal two-game losing streak. Halladay lost consecutive complete games because the Phillies failed to score more than two runs in either start. Mets 2, Yankees 1 NEW YORK — R.A. Dickey (2-5) regained command of his knuckleball and confounded the Yankees for six innings, Daniel Murphy homered and a youthful Mets lineup won the Subway Series opener in front of a surprisingly lackluster New York crowd. Justin Turner had three hits, including a tying double off Freddy Garcia (2-4) to give him an RBI in six straight games. Jose Reyes made a run-saving play at shortstop and Francisco Rodriguez converted his 15th save in a row for the resurgent Mets (2222), winners of 10 of 14. Mark Teixeira homered for the Yankees, who have lost six straight at home for the first time since 2003. Only about two-thirds of Yankee Stadium was full for the first inning of the 15th regular-season Subway Series opener after it rained all day — the attendance of 47,874 was about 1,000 shy of a sellout. Nationals 17, Orioles 5 BALTIMORE — Danny Espinosa homered and drove in five runs, Jayson Werth hit two homers and had four RBIs, and the Nationals had their biggest offensive outing since moving to Washington in a 17-5 rout of the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night. Roger Bernadina, Wilson Ramos and Laynce Nix also homered for the Nationals, who recorded a season-high 19 hits after being shut out in consecutive games. The six homers also set a Nationals record. Astros 5, Blue Jays 2 TORONTO — Chris Johnson hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Houston Astros rallied to beat the Toronto Blue Jays. The Astros (16-29), owners of the worst record in baseball, had lost five straight and
New York Mets, including closer Francisco rodriguez (75) and Jose reyes (7), david Murphy (28) and Justin turner (2), celebrate Friday’s win against the Yankees. 10 of 12 coming in, but rallied to win despite trailing 2-0 through seven innings. Toronto left-hander Jo-Jo Reyes looked poised to end a 26-start winless streak after pitching seven shutout innings. But Reyes saw his misery extended when Hunter Pence tied it with a two-run, twoout double off Jon Rauch in the eighth. Reyes’ last victory came with Atlanta against the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 13, 2008. He’s 0-12 with a 6.41 ERA since. Matt Keough holds the major league record, making 28 consecutive winless starts for Oakland from Sept. 6, 1978-Aug. 8, 1979. Marlins 5, Rays 3 MIAMI — Logan Morrison hit a gametying homer in the fourth inning and doubled in the Florida Marlins’ two-run eighth to help them beat Tampa Bay. Morrison scored Florida’s final run from third on a sacrifice fly to the first baseman. The Marlins fell behind 2-0 but rallied for their 14th come-from-behind win, which tied them with Colorado for the most in the majors. Mike Stanton hit his 10th homer for Florida. Chris Coghlan, who had been in a 3-for-33 slump, had two hits and scored a run. Pirates 10, Tigers 1 PITTSBURGH — Neil Walker homered and drove in a career-high five runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Detroit Tigers. Walker’s two-run double in the sixth off Detroit reliever Brayan Villarreal helped break open a tight game. Walker later added a three-run homer in the ninth as the Pirates won their third straight, matching their longest winning streak of the season. Royals 3, Cardinals 0 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jeff Francis threw 72⁄3 innings, outdueling Chris Carpenter and leading the Kansas City Royals to a victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Francis (1-5), who had pitched well several times while failing to get his first win since signing with the Royals, was facing a team he had always fared well against while playing in the National League. The right-
hander gave up six hits and two runs, walked two and struck out six while raising his career record over the Cardinals to 5-1. Indians 5, Reds 4 CLEVELAND — Rookie pinch-hitter Ezequiel Carrera bunted home Shin-Soo Choo from third base with two outs in the eighth inning, sending the Cleveland Indians past the Cincinnati Reds in the Ohio Showdown’s series opener. Carrera, called up from Triple-A Columbus earlier in the day when Travis Hafner went on the disabled list, dropped the first pitch from Nick Masset down the first-base line, scoring Choo, who had tripled off Bill Bray (1-1). The speedy Carrera was able to avoid a tag by first baseman Joey Votto for an unforgettable hit in his first at-bat in the majors. Angels 9, Braves 0 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ervin Santana pitched a four-hitter for his sixth career shutout and the Los Angeles Angels welcomed former Oakland nemesis Tim Hudson back to the Big A for the first time in almost seven years with a six-run third inning that carried them to a rout of the Atlanta Braves on Friday night. In the first interleague game for both teams, Santana (2-4) went the distance for the 10th time in 180 career starts. He struck out seven, and walked none for the first time in 10 starts this season. The right-hander got offensive help from Mark Trumbo with a three-run homer. National League Brewers 7, Rockies 6 (14 innings) MILWAUKEE — Prince Fielder hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the 14th inning, rallying the travel-weary Milwaukee Brewers to a victory over Rockies. After Ryan Braun was walked by Felipe Paulino (0-4) with one out, Fielder drove a pitch deep to right field for the game-winner after Milwaukee had previously erased deficits of 2-1, 4-2, 5-4 and finally 6-5. Fielder was mobbed at home plate as teammates came streaming out of the dugout almost as soon as he made contact.
