Man charged in stabbing death The Salisbury Police Department has arrested a man in connection with a fatal stabbing. Aaron Anderson Wilks Jr., 53, of 216 S. Craige St., was arrested and charged Sunday with first-degree murder in the death of a Salisbury man. Police responded to a 911 call at 2:10 a.m. Sunday at 216 S.

Perkins was transported to Rowan Regional Medical Center where he lat- WILKS er died from his injuries. Police say a verbal altercation between a woman and Wilks took place at the residence earlier in the evening. He left after the incident. According to police, a second altercation ensued when Wilks returned to the residence to find Perkins present. Police say Perkins was stabbed multiple times. Wilks is currently in jail, without bond, pending his first court appearance, which is set for today.

Floyd Daugherty Sr. has a knack for finding golf balls lost by other players during their rounds at The Warrior and Corbin Hills courses.

Veteran realizes he did ‘a little something’ BY MARK WINEKA

mwineka@salisburypost.com

LANDIS — Floyd Daughtery braced himself near an open window of the B-17, getting ready to bail out over France. When he first heard the pilot’s order to exit, Daugherty had been in his tailgunner’s position at the back of the bomber, the Canadian Club. He strapped on his parachute but couldn’t force open the door at the tail. So he moved to the waist of the plane, where six other crew members already had jumped out. Daugherty had never parachuted before, not even on a static line. Jumping now, from a height where breathing made crew members’ oxygen masks freeze, Daugherty was thinking only of surviving the fall. He would worry about being captured by Germans later.

PROFILE

In retirement, 87-year-old Floyd Daugherty gives his wife, Margaret, a hard time about all the ornaments she has collected for their front yard. He feels the same about the magnets she

sticks all over their kitchen appliances. Margaret loves that he golfs, which affords her some peace and quiet. “She runs me off every day,” he says. Daugherty and his wife draw lines, too, when it comes to NASCAR. “He’s a Dale Earnhardt Jr., and I’m a Jeff Gordon,” Margaret says of their favorite drivers. Daughtery just scratches his head at Dale Jr.’s run of bad luck. Inside his Landis home, Daugherty apologizes for even talking about his World War II experiences, though they’re something he increasingly has wanted to share through the years. Sometimes he talks to school groups. “The older I get, the more I think I done a little something to win the war,” he says with pride. 

Seconds before Daugherty was about to jump from the bomber, the pilot asked about the status of the ball-turret gunner, who had never heard the bail-out order. Daugherty moved off the window and went to retrieve him. Meanwhile, the plane was falling at 350 mph. By managing to pull out of the dive near 10,000 feet, the pilot also smothered the

Move afoot in Congress to ban drop-side cribs

The partisan budget rhetoric is similar to discussions during last year’s session. Democrats said they’re closing large budget gaps in part through stimulus money and spending cuts. They also approved tax increases in 2009 that will expire in 2011 to make up the rest. Republicans countered the true gaps were much lower and didn’t require higher taxes. This year, Democrats put the gap at between $800 million and $1 billion. The Senate budget cut the spending plan already approved to start July 1 by another 3 percent. But Republicans argued the $19 billion plan actually raises spending by more than $400

WASHINGTON (AP) — The baby crib, usually a safe haven for little ones, became a death trap for 6-month-old Bobby Cirigliano. The side rail on his drop-side crib slid off the tracks and trapped his head and neck between the mattress and the malfunctioning side rail. His face pressed against the mattress, the boy suffocated. “I just don’t feel complete anymore,” says his mother, Susan Cirigliano of North Bellmore on New York’s Long Island. Bobby was one of at least 32 infants and toddlers since 2000 who suffocated or were strangled in a drop-side crib, which has a side that moves up and down to allow parents to lift children from the cribs more easily than cribs with fixed sides. Drop-sides, around for decades and probably slept in by many of today’s parents, are suspected in an additional 14 infant fatalities during that time. The Consumer Product Safety Commission, which regulates cribs, has warned about the problem. Its chairman, Inez Tenenbaum, has pledged to ban the manufacture and sale of cribs by the end of the year with a new performance standard that would make fixed-side cribs mandatory. It could be several months into 2011 before becoming effective. The industry has already started phasing out drop-sides and big retailers such as Babies R Us and Wal-Mart have taken them off sale floors. Yet there are still plenty for sale on the Internet, and that’s part of the reason Congress is getting involved. “There’s a great urgency here. We have to make sure that no parent is unaware that drop-side cribs could kill their children,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, DN.Y., said in an Associated Press interview. She plans to introduce legislation this week to outlaw the manufacture, sale and resale of all drop-side cribs and ban them from day-care centers and hotels. Gillibrand wants to accelerate efforts for a ban, from Congress or the CPSC, and highlight concerns about the cribs to parents who are using them. “There still are thousands and thousands of children who are sleeping every night in drop-side cribs and we need to protect them,” said Gillibrand. She outlined her bill at a news confer-

2010 N.C. budget debate brings 2011 into view BY GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press

RALEIGH — Republicans complained during Senate debate last week over the chamber’s $19 billion budget for next year that Democrats haven’t prepared North Carolina state government for the fiscal woes facing the state in 2011. That’s when lawmakers won’t have more than $1.6 billion in federal stimulus funds currently used to fill holes for increasing Medicaid costs, the public schools and universities. Temporary income and sales tax increases generating $1.3 billion annually also are set to expire. And pent-up demands from the state employee pension funds and health insur-

ance will have to be resolved. “This budget total ignores the $3-plus billion cliff the state is about to go over in the next fiscal year,” Senate Minority Leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham, said last week on the day the bill passed largely along party lines. Democrats acknowledge the trouble ahead but argue they’re cutting spending and making tough choices so the state can jump out of the blocks as the economy recovers — helping tax collections in 2011 rebound and partially fix the problem. “I believe this is the budget that we need for this day and time,” said Sen. Linda Garrou, DForsyth, the Senate’s chief budget-writer.

But with interest groups howling about a second year of painful cuts and voters looking for someone to blame this November, Democrats are choosing political survival over instituting sweeping changes in the “short” session. Any dramatic changes will wait until next year, when they hope to still have the majority in the chambers and perhaps get a little more stimulus money from Capitol Hill. Republicans are “absolutely right, it’s going to be worse next time, and I do wish that we could do more,” said Rep. Jim Crawford, D-Granville, co-chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, which will offer its version in two weeks, but “we’re not going to cut everybody off in an election year.” William Lloyd Eidson Odell "Bubba" Sylvester Summers, Jr.

Lee Overman said at the time, ‘there is no better location for a school of this kind than Salisbury, N.C. I believe that every dollar entrusted to the care of the Rev. (George) Atkinson will be expended wisely, economically and judiciously.’ This building was originally built for a military school but was never used for that purpose. Historian Susan Goodman Sides says efforts to raise money for use of the building as the Normal and Industrial Institute — to be called Faith Hall — also were in vain. Founded in Newton in 1851, Catawba College came to Salisbury in 1925. Today’s administration building is named for J.T. Hedrick of Lexington. He was a Reformed Church leader and college trustee. The postcard is from Sides’ collection.

training sessions. HIIT is a form of cardio that is beneficial to burning fat in a short and intense workout. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 15 to 30 minutes. Most HIIT sessions have a 2:1 ratio in terms of time. Example, 60 seconds jog and 30 seconds sprint. Personally, I believe you need to condition your basic level first before you start doing interval training. If you have never done anything (or it has been a while) start to walk/jog/run/ bike or whatever cardio you like first. Get your body used to exercising. After you hit your first plateau — when you initially see results, your progress comes to a screeching halt — whether it is weight loss or no improvement in your running, interval training becomes very

WASHINGTON (AP) — More than 600 museums nationwide are offering free admission to military families all summer in a new partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The list includes some of the nation’s premier art museums, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as science centers, children’s museums and other sites in all 50 states. The program, called Blue Star Museums, is being announced Monday in San Diego, where 14 museums will participate. The offer for active duty military personnel and their families runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day. It was the brainchild of Kathy Roth-Douquet, chairwoman of the group Blue Star Families. Her husband, Marine Corps Col. Greg Douquet, is on his third deployment to Afghanistan.

This summer, they’re planning a road trip along the East Coast to visit museums. Normally, a $20 ticket to MoMA in New York might rule it out, she said. Now they could also stop for free at Washington’s Corcoran Gallery of Art or New York’s Jewish Museum. NEA Chairman Rocco Landesman said he was surprised by how many museums joined the effort, despite the poor economy, from the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum to the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Nebraska. “I think it is good karma for the museums,” he said. “Long-term, it promotes museum-going and engagement with the arts.” Also, over Memorial Day weekend in New York City, Sen. Kristen Gillibrand has announced more than 50 museums and historic sites will offer free admission to military personnel and veterans.

“You can feel a little alone in America right now, being part of the 1 percent that’s involved in fighting these wars,” she said, adding that the recession has changed priorities for many people. “When the kids and I go to museums this summer, we know we’re being welcomed. It will make us feel less alone.” Roth-Douquet, who lives in Parris Island, S.C., said military bases are sometimes far from cultural centers, though museums can be a good escape. The Defense Department is helping to promote the offer, and Roth-Douquet said some military bases may coordinate bus trips. When her family was based in London for a time, she and her son and daughter spent an entire summer visiting museums because many were free. As a result, she said, her 8year-old son Charlie now draws for hours each day.

Cub Scouts celebrate centennial with weekend event BY HUGH FISHER

hfisher@salisburypost.com

BADIN — Cub Scouts from Rowan County and beyond got an early taste of summer camp fun and learned about Scouting history this weekend at Camp John J. Barnhardt. In honor of the Boy Scouts of America’s centennial year, Cub Scouts from the Central North Carolina Council’s eight districts gathered for a special 100th Anniversary Encampment. The event kicked off Friday with a campfire gathering and entertainment, continued with games and activities all day Saturday and concluded Sunday with a chapel service and closing HUGH FISHER / SALISBURY POST ceremony. About 540 Cub Scouts, Ben Lavigne, 5, and Jacob Lavigne, 7, race sailboats during Saturday’s Cub Scout centennial boys in first through fifth celebration at Camp John J. Barnhardt.

grades, took part in the encampment, according to Thomas Griffin, a Rowan District volunteer. Counting their family members and volunteers who also attended, about 1,300 people total came out for the weekend’s events, event director David Roof said. “It’s definitely exceeded our expectations,” said Roof, who is also Cubmaster of Pack 443, based at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Salisbury. Many families braved rainy weather to camp out Friday and Saturday nights, making fun not just for the Cub Scouts but for their parents and Scouting-age brothers and sisters, too. “In the Cub Scouts, we do family camping,” Roof said. So, he said, kids got a chance to bond and also to hear stories of their parents’

camping trips. In keeping with the historic theme, the encampment featured re-enactments of early American camping and demonstrations of flintlocks and muskets by professionals. One of those men, Robert Cochran, does historic demonstrations for Salisbury Parks and Recreation. He volunteered his time this weekend to teach how pioneers camped and hunted for food. Not surprisingly, a lot of Cub Scouts said the muskets were their favorite part of the event. The district Pinewood Derby race was held alongside a “heritage” race with cars built according to the original rules from the 1950s.

Honoring a hero Grave marking ceremony commemorates a local Revolutionary War veteran BY KARISSA MINN

kminn@salisburypost.com

More than 200 years ago, Elias Barber donated land for a church in western Rowan County. On Sunday, a ceremony at that church honored his contribution to the county and his service as a military veteran. Red, white and blue flowers surrounded Barber’s headstone in wreaths and baskets. Mostly dressed in the same colors, more than two dozen people stood in the midday sun to watch as his grave was marked with the word “Patriot.” Dr. Sam Powell, vice president of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution South Atlantic District, helped conduct the ceremony. “The grave marking ceremony

is one of the most solemn things that we do,” he said. “We do this to ensure that the sacrifices our ancestors made to provide us the freedoms and independence that we enjoy today will be properly recorded and continually remembered.” The Sons of the American Revolution is an organization of men 18 years and older who can trace their ancestry back to someone who fought in or supported the American Revolution. Members of local SAR chapters, as well as chapters of Daughters of the American Revolution and Children of the American Revolution, presented wreaths and saluted Barber’s grave. “The marker that we will unveil today indicates service to the United States of America, and that this hero of the American Revolution is a military veteran who took up

arms in support of the ideals on which this country was founded,” Powell said. Grady Hall, governor of the N.C. Order of Founders and Patriots of America, spoke about Barber’s history in Rowan County. During the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution, General Nathaniel Greene came through western Rowan County on his way to the Battle of Guilford Courthouse. Family tradition holds that Elias Barber, a private in the St. Mary’s County Maryland State Militia, came through with him at that time. In 1794, a missionary expedition then led about 20 families, including the Barbers, to settle in western Rowan County. Barber’s family donated some land and a log The stone ‘Patriot’ marker on Elias

Remembering 4 proms and 2 left feet, but only 1 first kiss In 1967, I was invited to a pizza party for a youth group at a church by the girl who would become my first girlfriend MACK (pizza is WILLIAMS often maligned for its caloric and cholesterol content, but sometimes good can come of it). I

went to East Rowan, and she was a student at another Rowan County high school bearing the name of a different direction of the compass. We went to many movies and places together, and due to her being a year younger, from another school and my having met her in my junior year, we were able to attend four junior-senior proms together at our respective schools. She was very pretty and sweet, and

had a normal hair-do, not like the “beehive,” “poofed-out” hair often seen on those old black-and-white high school senior class pictures displayed on Internet adds saying: “Find Your Old Classmates.” I lacked the talent for dancing, being able to just get by with the simple moving of my feet back and forth. Actually, the only talent really required for the attending of a high school prom is finding

yourself in the fortuitous circumstance of being acquainted with someone who wishes also to attend the event, and with you. The local rock bands performed many of the hits of those days, songs now featured in television ads where collections of them, hawked by aging rock stars, can be had for four easy payments of $29.95! The decorations of the prom were very pretty and seemed to mean more to us for

having been fashioned by our peers instead of our teachers. This girl was the first girl whom I had ever kissed. I have a memory of kissing her in a church hallway on Christmas Eve, when no one else was looking. I also remember kissing her outside that same church on Christmas Eve, with the remnants of a recently fallen snow all around. The first time we kissed was in her living room. As we

kissed, I closed my eyes, and that touch — in my eyelid-enclosed night — always remains stored in my mind. In this recollection, out of respect for her, I’ve taken special note not to mention my old girlfriend’s name, and to identify neither the church nor her high school. I even purposefully failed to mention whether she was a blond, a brunette, or.....Uh Oh!, I’d best keep silent.

Starting this month, Cheerwine will launch its “Long Live Leisure Tour” and travel to select retailers, events and college hangouts across the South in a refurbished, tricked-out Volkswagen bus that one fan will win. The soft drink created the tour to engage consumers directly, allowing them to sample products and spread word of its new rally cry, “Long Live Leisure!” Tom Barbitta, vice president of marketing for Cheerwine, said the tour is a unique way to make a splash by brining its own form of media — the bus— directly to each store. “We’re a one-of-a-kind beverage that wanted to bring a memorable experience directly to consumers and leverage our size and nimbleness to our advantage,” he said. Cheerwine equipped the tour’s centerpiece, the “Leisure Bus,” with everything the winner will need to enjoy leisure time, including a fridge stocked full of the soft drink, a flat-screen TV, an Xbox, a surfboard and more. The bus’ exterior features a custom paint job and Cheerwine’s leisure characters, with a custom upholstered interior. The winner will be selected via a random drawing. Fans can enter the drawing at any of the tour stops, on Cheerwine’s Facebook page at www.facebook. com/cheerwine or via the Cheerwine website at www.itsasoftdrink.com. The “Leisure Bus” reflects Cheerwine’s brand positioning as the perfect beverage to enjoy kicking back and relaxing. Still a family-owned company, Cheerwine didn’t hire a third-party street team company to manage its “Long Live Leisure Tour.” Instead, the college-age kids of Cheerwine employees will drive the vehicle and sample at the various stops. The “Long Live Leisure Tour” will travel to various cities throughout the summer and fall, with stops confirmed closer to the dates. Kicking off the tour on its home turf, Cheerwine will spend the first week visiting various Walmart stores and other retailers in the Triad area and then off to the Salisbury/Charlotte market during “Speed Week.” The van

building for Christ Church, organized in 1817 and consecrated in 1927. Elizabeth Wainwright, his wife, taught Sunday school to the children. Barber and another early father of the church, Thomas Chunn, disagreed on whether the cemetery should be placed on the west side or east side of the church. Each one felt that placing the cemetery on the other side would ruin the nearby spring. Chunn was buried on the east side, and one of Barber’s children was buried on the west, establishing two cemeteries. One or both of them was right, because the spring was indeed ruined. This division was eventually closed, though, as the cemeteries grew into one. “Today we honor Elias,” Hall said while standing in that cemetery. “As we do, we remember that the fiber of this community has been greatly enriched and influenced by those early families.” Rebecca Jane Barber Floyd, a sixth-generation direct descendant of Barber’s, participated in the ceremony at Christ Episcopal Church in Cleveland . She pulled back a cloth to reveal the stone “Patriot” marker in front of Barber’s headstone. “I got very misty-eyed,” Floyd said after the ceremony. “I think they did a beauti-

In 2002, Floyd and her sister approached the LandTrust for Central North Carolina to help preserve their farmland and agreed to a conservation ease-

ment on the land. “We’re trying to maintain the farm as it has always been,” Floyd said. The importance of the past was a theme brought up more than once during the ceremony. “If the past is indeed a prologue, then a glimpse into the past can provide a source of wisdom and inspiration for future generations,” Powell said. “As we honor Elias Barber today, let us be mindful of his service to our nation, and let us rededicate ourselves to the principles which he held sacred.” After the cermony, Powell said that families like Floyd’s research their ancestors to gain membership in the SAR and DAR. They must show a lineage descent from one who either fought in or supported the American Revolution. Through that research, it is often found that the gravestones of these ancestors don’t reference their service. Some aren’t even marked at all. “We record that they were veterans of the American Revolution by having either a stone or brass marker applied to the grave,” Powell said. “They are indeed veterans. A lot of people don’t make that connection.” The SAR Revolutionary War Graves Register now includes 140,000 names and grave locations, he said. “It’s our hope,” Powell said, “to properly mark and include in this registry as many of these patriots as we can find.”

Coastal police increase waterway patrols WILMINGTON (AP) — Police in coastal North Carolina counties plan to add more waterway patrols this summer to increase enforcement of boating laws, the StarNews of Wilmington reported Sunday. Brunswick County deputies will man two boats 12 hours a day with resource officers who are out of school for the summer. Capt. Charles Wilson said the patrols will last after dark when many boaters are leaving their fishing spots or heading home from restaurants. Hanover County deputies also will man two boats, with a staff of four deputies and a

lieutenant, said Sheriff Ed McMahon. “We’re out there to try to educate people and make things safer, but at the same time enforce laws,” he said. Brunswick County’s patrols will include an air boat that has already been used this year to rescue a couple stuck in mud in a marsh near Oak Island. The increase in patrols could lead to more citations. Last year, Brunswick officers boarded 248 boats to check for safety equipment and violations, such as drunken driving. They gave out almost 200 verbal and written warnings for equipment vio-

lations and five boaters were charged with being impaired while boating, according to sheriff’s department records. The Carolina Beach Police Department hopes its stepped-up patrols can curb theft — the most-reported crime on the water near the shore as people steal items from moored boats. The local patrols are in addition to the U.S. Coast Guard and the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission whose officers are at public boat ramps and crowded inlets. Those officers also respond to boating accidents. “We don’t have a routine,”

SCOUTS FROM 3A

Other activities drew from Scouting’s heritage. “We went back to Cub Scout books from the ‘40s and ‘50s,” Roof said. Those books from the days before Nintendo, or even a TV in every home, were big on American Indian lore, outdoor games and toys made by hand. This weekend, kids (and the young-at-heart) got the chance to build or play with kites, whimmy-diddles, spool tractors, pinwheels and cupand-ball games. Nearby, at a big circle drawn in the dirt, many boys learned how to play marbles for the first time in their lives. The encampment was also an opportunity for Cub Scouts to take part in events they can’t do in their local units, Roof said. National regulations prohibit individual Cub Scout packs from holding shooting or archery events. Those can only be hosted at the district level at approved facilities, Roof said. So, the archery range and shooting range at Camp Barnhardt were buzzing all day as groups of boys and their leaders were taught the safe and proper ways to use bows and BB guns. “We wanted to have more

things than you could possibly do,” Roof said. Jeff Jones, leader of Pack 333 of St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, said he and the other parents had a blast as well as the boys. It’s also a chance to build Boy Scouting’s future. Although Cub Scouting was founded in the United States in 1930, two decades after the Boy Scouts of America, the centennial year is a chance to get boys interested in the programs. “One of our goals is to prepare them for Boy Scouting” by getting them involved in outdoor events, Jones said. Roof pointed out that studies have shown kids who are active and play outdoors have less trouble with ADHD and obesity. “This is a great opportunity for them,” he said. Shane Lavigne, of Indian Trail, brought his sons Jacob, 7, and Ben, 5, to the encampment. Jacob belongs to Pack 387; Ben isn’t quite old enough to join, but got to wear a Tiger Cub T-shirt and take part in some of the events with his big brother. Shane said the program is a way to meet active and involved parents and kids and help his sons get good guidance. “I was a Scout,” Shane said, “and I want to keep them involved.” from stores along the way,” Barbitta said. “The adventure has just begun and we hope our fans are excited about the ride ahead.” Launched in 1917 by L.D.

HILLSBOROUGH (AP) — A man who has pleaded guilty to several federal charges related to the death of a University of North Carolina student body president returns to court to face state charges in the case. The Herald-Sun of Durham reported that Demario Atwater will be in court Monday afternoon in Hillsborough. He is charged with murder, armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges in connection with the death of Eve Carson of Athens, Ga., in 2008. She had been shot five times with a 12-gauge shotgun. Atwater pleaded guilty last month to several charges, including carjacking resulting in death and kidnapping. Atwater is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court Sept. 23. His agreement with prosecutors is for a life sentence. Laurence Lovette also faces state charges in the case.

Officials investigating a series of fires CHARLOTTE (AP) — North Carolina fire officials have charged a woman with arson in an apartment building fire that was one of at least seven blazes over the weekend. The Charlotte Fire Department said in a news release that 27-year-old Shayla Davis was charged with arson in connection with the fire Sunday that caused $250,000 in damage. No one was injured. Davis was being held in the Mecklenburg County jail. Jail records did not indicate whether she has an attorney. It was one of several fires in Charlotte this weekend that included one fatality. Officials have not released the name of the 58-year-old woman who died after being pulled from a burning two-story duplex early Saturday. Investigators say that fire appears to be accidental and caused $200,000 in damage.

BY LAURA GIOVANELLI

The Winston-Salem Journal

YADKINVILLE (AP) — Her husband gave her the hydrangea bush and the Japanese maple. Her mother-in-law gave the couple the weeping cherry when they moved in years ago. Peonies were started from bushes that came from her, too. For birthdays, they make pudding from persimmons that they harvested from a tree near the driveway. In Beth Hutchens’ family, plants have always meant something. They’re passed down like old silver and handmade quilts. “We have a high regard for plants,” Hutchens said. “These are the kind of things you can keep forever. You can remember.” Hutchens has a lot to remember. She is that Beth Hutchens, the widow of Sgt. Mickey Hutchens, the Winston-Salem police officer who was shot to death last October while responding to a domestic dispute at the Bojangles’ on Peters Creek Parkway. When Sgt. Howard Plouff, a Winston-Salem police officer, was shot killed on the job in 2007, Doug Owen built a small memorial garden for his family. When he heard about Mickey Hutchens’ death, he contacted Beth through the police department and made a similar offer. She called back a couple of weeks later, Owen said. “She showed me the things that Mickey had put into the ground and she said she’d like to incorporate these things.” “I find that doing volunteer work is the most rewarding work I do,” he said. “I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose a spouse in that violent way. If I can make a person’s life a little easier in their time of trouble, then that’s what I can do — and that’s how I can help. “If you take that all sorrow, anguish and pain, and you put in something tangible like flowers, it kind of masks the pain you’re going through.” Owen owns Majestic Gar-

dens, a Winston-Salem landscape-design business. He’s one of the organizers of Operation Christmas Tree, a service that gathers up unsold Christmas trees every year and gives them to families who can’t afford them. Owen convinced Tim Hanauer of Earth Graphics and Alan Koontz of Carolina Pondscapes, an aquatic landscaping business based in Thomasville, to help him. Owen estimates they’ve donated about $10,000 in materials and labor. The Hutchens built their modest one-story house 15 years ago when they moved from Clemmons. It’s back from old Highway 421, on rolling county land hugged by the yards of her extended family. Mickey’s mother and stepfather live within sight. So does Mickey’s aunt. Gradually, they added landscaping. They didn’t have money to do a lot — they had two daughters to get through college — but they liked being outside. “We were doing a little bit at a time. This would be so important to Mickey if he was here,” Hutchens said. Without her husband, Hutchens does some of the yard work Mickey used to. She mows their wide, long lawn, listening to books that she’s downloaded to her iPod. The yard may come out a little crooked, but it gets done. A few weeks ago, Owen and Koontz came by Hutchens’ house to start the garden. Koontz drove back and forth across the Hutchens’ front yard, pushing Tennessee mountain boulders into position over a hole dug deep into North Carolina Piedmont red clay. The garden’s focus is a water feature: Water bubbles over a carefully arranged pile of boulders, spreading down over pebbles and smaller rocks and filling the Hutchens’ quiet yard with a gentle gurgle. There are new perennials — day lilies, Russian sage, hellebore, a Camilla bush. Owen moved the hydrangea nearby and spread mulch to include the Japanese maple, too.

Small investors after market drop: I told you so

tle. “We like to go where there’s panic, because in the midst of the crisis you get the best opportunities.” If the past is any guide, individual investors might not join him anytime soon. Investors pulled $25 billion out of stock mutual funds after the market bottomed last year, according to the Investment Company Institute, a mutual fund industry trade group. Meanwhile, they stuffed bank accounts with cash and loaded up with

bonds. Last year saw $376 billion flow into bond funds. If there’s more turmoil in stocks, though, the individuals playing it safe may not escape completely unscathed. Money manager Richard Bernstein, a former Merrill Lynch strategist, notes that some of the bonds that individuals have loaded up on are junk bonds, dicey ones issued by companies with iffy prospects. If stocks fall, there’s a good chance junk will lose money, too.

“They got greedy,” says Bernstein of the little guys. Tobias Levkovich, chief U.S. equity strategist at Citigroup, thinks they’ll get greedy for stocks soon, too. He notes that some individual investors had finally started putting money back into stocks before the recent drop, and he thinks they won’t be able to resist if the market resumes its climb. “They tend to chase the market,” he says. “If it rallies, they’ll come back in.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sales of previously occupied homes likely rose 5.2 percent in April as government incentives provided temporary fuel to the housing market. Economists polled by Thomson Reuters forecast the National Association of Realtors will say sales rose to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.63 million, up from 5.35 million in March. The report is scheduled for 10 a.m. today. The federal government provided a big boost to home sales this spring by offering first-time buyers a tax credit of 10 percent of the purchase price, up to $8,000. There’s also a credit of 10 percent, up to a maximum of $6,500, for homeowners who want to upgrade. The deadline to get a signed sales contract and still qualify for either credit was April 30. Buyers have until the end of June to complete their sales. The tax credit’s impact is likely to show up in the home sales report for several months because it measures completed sales rather than sales contracts. But the fate of the housing market for the rest of the year is uncertain. Without the tax credit, mortgage applications to purchase homes fell to the lowest level in 13 years last week, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association.

days in something different than anything I’ve seen in 30 years,” he says. Bob Doll, chief investment officer at the money management firm BlackRock Inc., echoes that view. “I think a lot of people are selling now and asking questions later,” he says. Adds Daniel Alpert, managing partner of Westwood Capital LLC, “Now everybody is reconfiguring their portfolios, trying to get defensive.” Not surprisingly, some professional investors think the wholesale selling is overdone. David Marcus, CEO of Evermore Global Advisors in Summit, N.J., says he’s using the market drop to buy a lit-

might not stop it from defaulting. On Friday, the Dow closed at 10,193, up 1.3 percent for the day but down 9 percent from its late April peak. Some market observers say the fact that professional investors have been selling recently is less worrisome than their doing so indiscriminately. Bill Fleckenstein, a Seattle hedge fund manager, says that in big selloffs, it’s individual stocks or sectors that lead markets lower. But now everything seems to fall in unison, suggesting that investors are uneasy about owning any stocks. “What we’ve seen in recent

NEW YORK (AP) — Maybe the dumb money isn’t so dumb after all. Individual investors always seem to jump into stock rallies when they should be getting out. But after two crashes in 10 years, the little guy decided to stay on the sidelines this past year — and played the fool again. Stocks just kept going up and up. Well, at least until this month. The professionals who have been pushing shares higher for 14 months discovered during the past few weeks something Main Streeters caught on to a while ago: Stocks are dangerous. “They were always thinking stocks were going to go back down again,” Mark Luschini, chief market strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott, says of individual investors. “The scar from investment declines hasn’t gone away,” Though markets rallied Friday, most major stock indexes are down now about 10 percent from their late April peaks. Such reversals, called “corrections,” are common during a bull market, and many analysts believe this market was long due for one. Still, investors — professionals as well as individuals — are unnerved. One measure of market jitters is the VIX, a market indicator commonly referred to as the fear index, which tracks expectations of big swings in stocks. From late April, the index has nearly tripled to levels not seen in over a year. The change in market sentiment has come fast. Last month, the question on everyone’s lips was whether Corporate America would post earnings that showed the economy was indeed gaining strength. Then the numbers came in, and they were impressive. Instead of just slashing costs to generate profits, companies actually sold more, too. In other words, that great engine of the growth, the American shopper, was back. The recovery was assured. Then came fears early this month that Greece’s debt troubles could spread, perhaps slowing or even halting growth throughout the world. Stocks began to pull back. On May 6, there was the so-called “flash” crash, sending the Dow Jones industrial average down to a loss of nearly 1,000 points in less than 30 minutes. Last week served up more unsettling developments: a financial reform bill in Congress that could crimp bank profits, the sinking of the once surging euro and fears that a $1 trillion bailout of Greece

million compared to what Gov. Beverly Perdue actually will spend in the year ending June 30 because she delayed spending to have enough cash to pay the state’s bills. Members of both parties agree about next year’s budget gap — it will probably be $3 billion unless the economy roars back to life soon. They differ about just what they can do to prepare for it. Crawford said there’s very little the General Assembly can do beyond refusing to expand budget items that aren’t part of entitlement programs like Medicaid and protect public education. Berger said freezing spending at the current year’s levels would possibly save another $450 million. But Republicans presented only two amendments during last week’s Senate budget debate and haven’t rolled out a plan on how they would do things differently. “It’s a little bit disingenuous of them to say that we could spend at last year’s levels,” said Chris Fitzsimon, executive director of the liberal political watchdog group NC Policy Watch. “Would they rather lay off thousands of teachers to prepare for next year?” Democrats don’t feel the need to make rash decisions because the state retained the top credit rating of the three major bond-rating agencies — a sign of fiscal stability — which they attribute to prudent fiscal decisions in 2009. Still, they haven’t exactly been willing to make bold decisions that would put the state’s tax base on firmer footing in the years ahead. They’ve punted for a decade on overhauling the tax system, which would have probably narrowed the revenue shortfall by tapping into the growing service economy. They’ve also declined to reduce the scope of the state’s $10 billion Medicaid program by eliminating optional services other states don’t provide. Democrats appear willing to wait to until 2011 before deciding on difficult choices.

Daugherty now works every Thursday morning at The Warrior Golf Club. He arrives early and gets the golf carts ready, starts people off on the first hole and, later, acts as ranger, keeping groups moving when they get too slow. In exchange, the course allows him to golf for free. He has the same privileges at Corbin Hills, where he used to work. He has a knack for finding lost balls, as evidenced by the baskets and pans of balls sitting on a shelf in his garage. Daugherty plays golf efficiently, usually keeping his ball straight and in play. He easily shoots his age, playing alone or pairing up with buddies such as Donnie Allison and C.P. Fisher. He fudges on his score sometimes, Daugherty acknowledges. “I cheat a whole lot when I play by myself,” he says. “I kick the ball, I move it, or I count my best ball when I miss a lick.” Daugherty suffered a heart attack while golfing in Charlotte back in 1992, leading to triple-bypass surgery. Doctors added two stents in 1999. Otherwise, his health has been great, and he moves around the golf course and in and out of his Landis home like a youngster. “I’m living on borrowed time,” Daughtery laughs, “but I’m making the most of it.”

Daugherty finished Landis High School in 1941. He had required the constant attention of Principal T.F. Bostian. “He’d tear my butt up all the time, when I got into scrapes at school,” Daugherty says, “but he was great.” A group of his friends at Landis High were drafted, so Floyd volunteered for the Army, thinking they might all stay together. Instead, the Army scattered them across the country. The 19-year-old Daugherty went to basic training in St. Petersburg, Fla., gunnery school in Panama City, Fla., (where he talked frequently with actor Clark Gable) and armor school in Denver, Colo. Two more stops, and he was in Walla Walla, Wash., practicing with his B-17 crew. The 10-man crew flew a practice night mission between Walla Walla and Boise, Idaho. On their way back, they veered way off course, running out of gas in Calgary, Canada. Back at the base, they became known as the “Lost Canadians” and the “Canadian Kids.” It just seemed right to name their B-17 the “Canadian Club.” Thirty years after the war, Floyd and Margaret started making trips across the country, hooking up with members of his original crew. “Every time we’d get together, we’d drink Canadian Club,” Floyd says, “and that’s what I still drink.” The crew stayed together only through the first seven missions in Europe. After that,

Things I just don’t understand 1. You have to show your “papers” to attend a presidential state dinner, but the president criticizes Arizona for trying to do the same to keep illegal aliens out of Arizona. 2. Congress won’t pass an immigration law but say Arizona’s immigration law is unconstitutional. But they haven’t even read Arizona’s law, which mirrors the federal law, so how do they know? 3. I guess Congress finds it significantly worse to ask a person’s for identification in Arizona than it is to stop drugs, murderers, gangs and criminals from entering the U.S. 4. Why do we need thousands of immigrants coming here annually when we don’t have enough jobs for our own people? 5. Why are we trying to give billions of our dollars to bail out Greece, whose people have far greater government funded benefits than we do? They can retire at 52 with a nice pension. 6. Why does Congress keep spending money it doesn’t have despite the fact it runs our education system that teaches math. Let’s replace them with math teachers who can add and subtract. 7. Why is Congress going to bail out a labor union with our tax dollars to restore their pension fund? How many of you don’t have a pension fund but will be contributing to theirs? Is this the change you voted for? 8. And finally, why doesn’t government put our mentally and physically capable deadbeats receiving welfare, etc. to work doing the jobs illegal aliens are doing?

The darker side of Monsanto

Regarding Monsanto becoming a partner at the N.C. Research Campus: Monsanto has strategically pursued farmers across the country for the crime of having crops that have been cross-pollinated by Roundup pollen carried on the wind from other fields. Farmers have been sued for up to $3,052,800. An N.C. farmer settled for $1.5 million. The consequences of these practices not only devastate farmers; they are changing intellectual property laws, making it possible for people to be held libel for acts of God. It is well known in the agricultural community that farmers save seeds from their crops to be used in the next planting. It is through this practice that over years farmers refine and perfect the quality of their crop. A farmer’s seed can go back 20, 30 years. It is their legacy. But if their crops are pollinated by Roundup, their seed becomes subject to Roundup copyright laws and is in essence no longer theirs. This is especially devastating for organic farmers, who depend upon years of hard work and natural selection instead of genetic modifications and herbicides. The most damaging product being developed by Monsanto is a “terminator seed” that produces crops with seeds that are unable to grow. This way, farmers who buy Roundup seeds cannot save seeds for the next harvest and must repurchase. Why is this so dangerous? Pollen can travel hundreds of miles. There are measurable amounts of pollen in Antarctica. Fields across America could be cross pollinated by “Terminator” pollen and begin producing sterile harvests. I believe that there is a place for genetically modified crops, but in areas of the world where such extreme conditions exist that there is no other option. Sadly, instead of focusing on these more meritorious causes, Monsanto has chosen to pursue ways to tamper with our food supply in the name of preserving their copyrights. — Whitney Bost

First baseman is a first-rate fellow I am writing this letter because of my adoration of a young man who has become a hero/role model for my 7year-old son. His name is Kyle Bridges, and he’s the starting first baseman for Carson High School. I took my son, Samuel, to a game at Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium, and he mentioned that Mr. Bridges goes to his church. Kyle later saw Samuel at church and started taking an interest in him. As a matter of fact, Kyle brought three other players with him (including Jesse Park) to see Samuel play in China Grove. After the game, Kyle introduced Samuel to the other players and then gave him an official Carson hat and sweatshirt! You should have seen how excited Samuel was when he told me about this. Since then, we have gone to several Cougar baseball games, and each time, Kyle made Samuel feel special. He even dedicated his next hit to my son! My wife and I have been very touched by this special relationship between two ballplayers. As a junior in high school, Kyle could have easily brushed Samuel aside and gone about his business. But he took time to come to even more games, spend time and really become a friend to a first grader. With all of the bad press that young people are getting these days, it is refreshing that one teenager has gone out of the way to be a true friend to my impression-

able son. I send out a heartfelt thank you to Kyle for being so kind. — Greg Safrit China Grove

Thanks for making it a great festival Last Saturday’s second 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 reporter Shelley Smith 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. Special thanks to the NC Transportation Museum and the annual antique truck show. These parallel events, across the street from each other, generated synergy as a tourist event destination. That helped produce the unexpected high attendance at both events. Festival volunteers, led by Mr. B. Coley, repeatedly created solutions to unforeseen problems and kept all things running smoothly. Without their dedication and enthusiasm, the event could not have happened. Thank you, Cheerwine, for providing the drinks and syrup to make the Cheerwine truffles. Both are winners! Congratulations to the barbecue contest winners. “Two Men and a Grill” was the judges’ choice for “Best in

Rowan,” but “Team Smokey Lane” won the “People’s Choice Award.” The Barbecue Festival is an event to honor the heritage of barbecue and Cheerwine. It also promotes cultural tourism. It met those goals and will be back again in 2011. Thanks to all who attended. You made the 2010 Barbecue Festival a success and the festival committee is invigorated in planning and expanding for 2011. We vow to have ample barbecue cooked and even more barbecue cookies! Get a glimpse at: cwww. BBQFest2011.EventBrite.com. We welcome comments. — George Busby Busby is the barbecue festival coordinator for the Salisbury-Rowan Cultural Arts Committee.

Awesome response for fundraiser We would like to thank the members of the Millbridge Ruritan Club for hosting the fish fry fundraiser for Carson Lineberger. You guys are awesome! We’d also like to thank members of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, Thyatira and Back Creek Presbyterian Churches, and Tisha, Mary and Crystal from Rowan County Relay for Life for all they did to help, from making desserts to working. We appreciate each of you. We have been well blessed during Carson’s 16-year journey from being diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his mandible and his 42 reconstructive surgeries. We are hopeful that he will receive a permanent partial set of lower teeth sometime this summer. To all who came out and/or made donations we offer our heartfelt thanks. We are overwhelmed by your support to help Carson complete this journey. May God bless your lives as richly as you have blessed ours. — Family of Carson Lineberger China Grove

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be) “Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.” — Henry Kaiser

his article is in response to recent complaints about students who don’t respect the nation’s flag or honor our Pledge of Allegiance. I have the privilege of being a volunteer with Communities in Schools, a national non-profit agency that helps students stay in school, be successful and prepare for life. I have lunch once a week with a special little girl who is a kindergarten student in Mrs. Lindsay Merritt’s class at Koontz Elementary. Instead of my usual Tuesday lunch date, I was invited to attend a breakfast on May 6 in honor of Mother’s Day. I arrived a little early hoping to help with the preparation. Right around 9 a.m., a voice came over the intercom requesting that Mrs. Merritt turn on the TV to channel 85. She spoke to one of her students, who promptly followed her instructions. I stopped what I was doing when all at once the children stood at attention at their desks, faced the flag, placed their hands over their hearts and began the Pledge of Allegiance. They weren’t merely speaking but practically shouting in unison with all the volume and enthusiasm their little spirits could muster. I joined in as Mrs. Merritt and Mrs. Linda James stood with their class and set the example. I’ll admit that I have been disillusioned with America lately, but at that moment, I could hardly contain the pride and hope that I felt. We’re talking about a class of 5- and 6-year-olds, different races, different cultures, learning and growing together in a loving and structured environment. While their moms were enjoying breakfast, they watched a video featuring each child telling why their mother was special to them; things like, “She plays with me,” “She eats ice cream with me,” “She makes me macaroni,” “She cleans my room.” Is there anything sweeter than the innocence of a child? Each mother received a copy of the DVD as a gift. I was overwhelmed as these children and their teachers honored America and their mothers. Then it dawned on me: WAIT A SUBMITTED PHOTO MINUTE!!! Communities in Schools volunteer This sounds Norma Shuping poses with Lethia, like the way a special friend at Koontz Elemen- things were — how is it tary. this generation puts it — “back in the day.” I can relate! Those were the days that helped to make “me.” I say, “Amen!!” My prayer for these children is that the Lord will continue to “guard their hearts and minds.” To all readers, I challenge you to become involved with the Communities in Schools programs. Please contact Doris Yost at 704-797-0210 or e-mail: cisvolunteer@aol.com. You may say, “I’m not a teacher.” Neither am I, but I reminded myself that “God doesn’t always call the qualified ... he qualifies those he calls.” All it takes it a little bit of time, love and a willing spirit. I chose the primary level, but help is welcomed in all age groups. I have been reminded of the value of respecting those in authority without arguing or being rebellious, how to stay on my square to form a straight line, how to walk with one hand by my side and the other hand’s index finger on my lips so as not to disturb other classes when I am in the hallway and how to keep my shirt tail tucked in at all times. I can promise that you will see more smiles, get more hugs, open more cantankerous milk cartons (some things never change) and tie more shoes than you thought possible in one short hour. The blessing you receive is well worth the effort. To any of you students who have forgotten or are out of practice honoring “Old Glory,” just pay a visit to Mrs. Merritt’s class. They’ll show you how it’s done. To Mrs. Merritt and Mrs. James and all the administration at Koontz Elementary, I admire and applaud you. What a great job you are doing! You give validity to the book, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.” To the children, I say “thank you” for sharing yourselves with me. I love you all.

As spill grows, oil soaks delicate marshes, birds, nests BARATARIA BAY, La. (AP) — As officials approached to survey the damage the Gulf oil spill caused in coastal marshes, some brown pelicans couldn’t fly away Sunday. All they could do was hobble. Several pelicans were coated in oil on Barataria Bay off Louisiana, their usually brown and white feathers now jet black. Pelican eggs were glazed with rust-colored gunk, and new hatchlings and nests were also coated with crude. It is unclear if the area can even be cleaned, or if the birds can be saved. It is also unknown how much of the Gulf Coast will end up looking the same way because of a well that has spewed untold millions of gallons of oil since an offshore rig exploded more than a month ago. “As we talk, a total of more than 65 miles of our shoreline now has been oiled,” said Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who announced new efforts to keep the spill from spreading. A mile-long tube operating for about a week has siphoned off more than half a million gallons in the past week, but it began sucking up oil at a slower rate over the weekend. Even at its best the effort did not capture all the oil leaking, and the next attempt to stanch the flow won’t be put into action until at least Tuesday. With oil pushing at least 12 miles into Louisiana’s marshes and two major pelican rookeries now coated in crude, Jindal said the state

has begun work on chain of berms, reinforced with containment booms, that would skirt the state’s coastline. Jindal, who visited one of the affected nesting grounds Sunday, said the berms would close the door on oil still pouring from a miledeep gusher about 50 miles out in the Gulf. The berms would be made with sandbags and sand hauled in; the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers also is considering a broader plan that would use dredging to build sand berms across more of the barrier islands. At least 6 million gallons of crude have spewed into the Gulf, though some scientists have said they believe the spill already surpasses the 11 million-gallon 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill off Alaska as the worst in U.S. history. Obama administration officials continued defending their response while criticizing that of BP PLC, which leased the rig and is responsible for the cleanup. U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said he is “not completely” confident that BP knows what it’s doing. “If we find they’re not doing what they’re supposed to be doing, we’ll push them out

Oil is seen on the tip of the bill of an oil-soaked pelican on an island in Barataria Bay just off the the coast of Louisiana. The island, which is home to hundreds of brown pelican nests as well at terns, gulls and roseate spoonbills, is impacted by oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. ASSOCIATED PRESS

of the way appropriately,” Salazar said. But federal officials have acknowledged that BP has expertise that they lack in stopping the deep-water leak. In Barataria Bay, orange oil had made its way a good 6 inches onto the shore, coating grasses and the nests of brown pelicans in mangrove trees. Just six months ago, the birds had been removed from the federal endangered species list. The pelicans struggled to

clean the crude from their bodies, splashing in the water and preening themselves. One stood at the edge of the island with its wings lifted slightly, its head drooping — so encrusted in oil it couldn’t fly. Wildlife officials tried to rescue oil-soaked pelicans Sunday, but they suspended their efforts after spooking the birds. They weren’t sure whether they would try again. U.S. Fish and Wildlife spokeswoman Stacy Shelton said it is sometimes better to leave

the animals alone than to disturb their colony. Pelicans are especially vulnerable to oil. Not only could they eat tainted fish and feed it to their young, but they could die of hypothermia or drowning if they’re soaked in oil. Globs of oil have soaked through containment booms set up in the area. Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser said BP needed to send more booms. He said it would be up to federal wildlife authorities to decide whether to try to clean the oil that has already washed ashore. “The question is, will it do more damage because this island is covered with the mess?” Nungesser said. Officials have considered some drastic solutions for cleaning the oil — like burning or flooding the marshes — but they may have to sit back and let nature take care of it. Plants and pelican eggs could wind up trampled to death by well-meaning humans. If the marshes are too dry, setting them ablaze could burn plants to the roots and obliterate the wetlands. Flooding might help by floating out the oil, but it also could wash away the natural barriers to flooding from hurricanes and other disasters — much like hurricanes Katrina and Rita washed away marshlands in 2005. State and federal officials spent millions rebuilding the muchneeded buffer against tropical storms. The spill’s impact now stretches across 150 miles,

from Dauphin Island, Ala. to Grand Isle, La. On Sunday, oil reached an 1,150-acre oyster ground leased by Belle Chasse, La., fisherman Dave Cvitanovich. He said cleanup crews were stringing lines of absorbent boom along the surrounding marshes, but that still left large clumps of rust-colored oil floating over his oyster beds. Mature oysters might eventually filter out the crude and become fit for sale, but this year’s crop of spate, or young oysters, will perish. The only thing that has kept leaking oil out of the Gulf so far is the mile-long tube siphoning oil from the well to a ship. BP spokesman John Curry told The Associated Press on Sunday that it siphoned some 57,120 gallons of oil within the past 24 hours, a sharp drop from the 92,400 gallons of oil a day that the device was sucking up on Friday. The amount BP has collected in the mile-long tube has varied since it was installed last week. The device was siphoning 42,000 gallons of oil a day early that week, but at times Thursday, the siphon was collecting oil at a rate of as much as 210,000 gallons a day. BP refused to provide dayby-day figures on how much oil the tube was diverting. Curry said the rate is expected to vary widely, in part because it is not just oil but also natural gas that is leaking. On Sunday, for instance, the siphon collected more than 7 million cubic feet of gas.

U.S.-born Yemeni cleric calls for the killing of American civilians CAIRO (AP) — A U.S.-born cleric who has encouraged Muslims to kill American soldiers called for the killing of U.S. civilians in his first video released by a Yemeni offshoot of al-Qaida, providing the most overt link yet between the radical preacher and the terror group. Dressed in a white Yemeni robe, turban and with a traditional jambiyah dagger tucked into his waistband, Anwar Al-Awlaki used the 45minute video posted Sunday to justify civilian deaths — and encourage them — by accusing the United States of intentionally killing a million Muslim civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. American civilians are to blame, he said, because “the American people, in general, are taking part in this and they elected this administration and they are financing the war.” “Those who might be killed in a plane are merely a drop of water in a sea,” he said in the video in response to a question about Muslim groups that disapproved of the airliner plot because it targeted civilians. Al-Awlaki, who was born in New Mexico and is believed to be hiding in his parents’ native Yemen, has used his personal website to encourage Muslims around the world to kill U.S. troops in Iraq.

ence in New York on Sunday, joined by Bobby Cirigliano’s parents and the family of 10month-old Tyler Witte, who died in a drop-side crib in 1997. More than 7 million of these cribs have been recalled in the past five years, often because screws, safety pegs or plastic tracking for the rail can come loose or break. The industry insists that babies are safe in drop-sides that haven’t been recalled. “We believe firmly that when these products are assembled and used properly, they are the safest place to put your child,” said Mike Dwyer, executive director of the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, which represents over 90 percent of the crib industry. But when the hardware

Krishnan and just seven others survived. “I’ve been thinking, ’Why me? Why me?’ And I can only think that God wanted to give me a second life,” he said from his hospital bed in Mangalore. Investigators and aviation officials combed through the wreckage of the Boeing 737800 strewn across a hillside to try to determine the cause of India’s worst air disaster in more than a decade. They recovered the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder, which they hope will give them important clues, the Press Trust of India news agency reported. A four-member U.S. forensic team also arrived in India to help in the investigation, said Harpreet Singh, an Air India spokeswoman. By Sunday evening, 146 of the 158 bodies had been identified and were being handed to grieving relatives for burial, said Arvind Jadhav, Air India’s chairman and managing director.

dicts nothing about the fall. “It is a significant win. It is the birthplace of the president of the United States,” Republican Chairman Michael Steele said a few hours after Djou sealed his victory over Democrats Colleen Hanabusa and Ed Case. The two drew 59 percent of the vote between them in the winner-take-all contest. But Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., chairman of the Democratic campaign committee, said the result was “a clear case of local Democrats not being able to work out a solution where you could get one (Democratic) candidate against one (Republican candidate).” He said that would change by November. Djou became the first Republican in nearly 20 years to win a congressional seat from his state, and he seemed to recognize that his political future was anything but secure. “The people of Hawaii have give us a short-term lease with an option to buy in November,” he said. “This is not the time for us to rest on our laurels. This is the time to redouble our efforts to bring out change. To do good, to restore our nation to prosperity.”

malfunctions, the drop-side rail can detach partially from the crib. That creates a dangerous “V”-like gap between the mattress and side rail where a baby can get caught and suffocate or strangle. Dwyer says manufacturers have seen cases where parents installed the dropside improperly, sometimes upside down, or they have reassembled a crib for a second or third child with some of the screws or other hardware missing. In addition to the CPSC’s pledge to vote on a ban by year’s end, two New York counties — Nassau and Suffolk, on Long Island — have banned the sale of drop-sides. Late last year, crib manufacturers were already moving in that direction when they voted to eliminate the drop-side design and instead opt for four fixed sides, but the standard is a voluntary one.

Despite the industry’s move to end production, there are plenty of new and used drop-side cribs for sale online. The Associated Press found drop-sides for purchase on websites for Sears, Kmart and Amazon.com. Craigslist also had scores of used drop-side cribs for sale. The industry doesn’t have figures on how many dropsides might still be on the market, but Dwyer says it’s a small percentage.

Thai film ‘Uncle Boonmee’ wins top Cannes honor CANNES, France (AP) — The hypnotic Thai film “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives” won the top honor at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday, while Academy Award winners Juliette Binoche and Javier Bardem earned acting honors. “Uncle Boonmee,” direct-

ed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, traces the dreamlike final days of a man dying of kidney failure as the ghost of his dead wife returns to tend him and his long-lost son comes home in the form of a furry jungle spirit. Binoche, an Oscar winner for “The English Patient,” won best actress for the cryptic love story “Certified Copy,” directed by past Palme d’Or winner Abbas Kiarostami.

57 ancient tombs with mummies unearthed in Egypt ASSOCIATED PRESS

Abdel Rahman El-Aydi, head of the archaeological mission that made the discovery, said some of the tombs are decorated with religious texts that ancient Egyptians believed would help the deceased to cross through the underworld. El-Aydi said one of the oldest tombs is almost completely intact, with all of its funerary equipment and a wooden sarcophagus containing a mummy wrapped in linen. In 31 tombs dating to around 2030-1840 B.C, archeologists discovered scenes of different ancient Egyptian

U.S. official: Still at odds with China over N. Korea, Iran BEIJING (AP) — The United States and China are still at odds about how to deal with North Korea over the sinking of a South Korean warship it has been blamed for, a senior U.S. official said Sunday. They also remain apart on the specifics on new U.N. sanctions to impose on Iran over its suspect nuclear program, the official said. On the eve of two days of high-level, U.S.-China talks, the official said China is not yet convinced that North Korea was responsible for the sinking of the South Korean vessel despite an international report that found it responsible. The official also said the two sides have not yet agreed on the details of penalties to impose on Iran. The official spoke to reporters on condition of anonymity to describe discussions held at a private dinner hosted by a top Chinese official for U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton ahead of the talks.

sury Secretary Timothy Geithner are the U.S. co-chairs of the two-day strategic and economic dialogue with the Chinese. The differences outlined by the official underscore the difficulties the Obama administration faces in trying to improve cooperation with China, particularly on international security issues. Both issues will be the subject of intense consultations over the course of the next two days, the official said. The U.S. official said that during the dinner the American side raised with the Chinese the seriousness with which the United States and its allies South Korea and Japan take the March ship sinking, which the report blamed on a torpedo fired by a North Korean submarine. The Americans also told the Chinese that it was important for Washington and Beijing to work closely on the matter, which the U.S. and South Korea say is a serious breach of the armistice that ended the Korean War, the official said.

CAIRO (AP) — Archeologists have unearthed 57 ancient Egyptian tombs, most of which hold an ornately painted wooden sarcophagus with a mummy inside, Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities said Sunday. The oldest tombs date back to around 2750 B.C. during the period of Egypt’s first and second dynasties, the council said in a statement. Twelve of the tombs belong the 18th dynasty which ruled Egypt during the second millennium B.C. The discovery throws new light on Egypt’s ancient religions, the council said. Egypt’s archaeology chief, Zahi Hawass, said the mummies dating to the 18th dynasty are covered in linen decorated with religious texts from the Book of the Dead and scenes featuring ancient

Emotional day for NASCAR BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press

CHARLOTTE — Brian France spent years formulating plans to build the NASCAR Hall of Fame and holding its first induction ceremony. It still didn’t prepare the NASCAR chairman for the overflow of emotions on Sunday. Seeing his father and grandfather included in the first class hit close to home. This was about family — and a sport that had grown up. “It was an emotional day. I didn’t anticipate that,” said France, the third generation of NASCAR’s original and only

ruling family. “I do a lot of things that are within the sport and they’re all great. This was different today. It was a big celebration I didn’t expect.” They waited until the end to induct the late Dale Earnhardt, the working man’s driver who received the customary “Wooooo” with three fingers raised from a fan in the crowd. PETTY Junior Johnson said it “couldn’t have been a better day,” a significant statement from a driver and owner who has been referred to as the

“last American hero.” Richard Petty wore his customary cowboy hat with feathers, and the King was properly honored for his staggering 200 victories. But this was about NASCAR as a whole, too. A sport that for years struggled with the stigma of being a regional sport reached another milestone. And the France family was behind it. Bill France Sr, who organized bootleggers like Johnson in North Carolina and the beach racing folks in Florida to create NASCAR, was the first Hall of Fame inductee. ASSOCIATED PRESS

MOCKSVILLE — A sweaty South 1 Sunday Mocksville 0 e n d e d with a South 8 doubleeader Randolph 6 hsweep by South Rowan’s Legion team and a weird double play. The DP went F8U (U for unassisted) — an entry we won’t see in a scorebook again anytime soon. Trailing 8-6 in its final atbat, Randolph County had a runner at second with one out. Daniel Massey ripped a low liner that is a base hit 95 percent of the time, but charging South center fielder Blake Houston snagged the ball right off the grass at Mando Field to give Alex Ingold a save. “It stayed low, but I had a good jump,” Houston said. Baserunner Scott Hayes, certain the ball would fall, had rounded third, so Houston jogged to the infield and hopped on second to complete the twin killing. “I saw that the runner was almost home,” Houston said with a grin. “So why risk a throw?” If you’re thinking, things are going South’s way in the early going, you’re right. South (3-0) got a tiebreaking, two-run homer from Maverick Miles to rally against Randolph. In the opener of a round robin in Mocksville, South got amazing pitching from Preston Penninger and turned three double plays to beat Mocksville 1-0. It was scheduled for seven, but it lasted eight. Julio Zubillaga’s homer won it. Somehow “Zubie” whacked a neck-high p i t c h thrown by frequent adversary D.J. Webb ( W e s t Rowan) over the PENNINGER left-field fence. “It was a high curve that was breaking, but it looked good to me and I hit it solid,” Zubillaga said. “But the biggest thing was still our defense and Preston.” Mocksville ripped the ball early, but Penninger’s teammates made plays behind him. Then he settled in and traded zeroes with Davie’s Ryan Carter. “Lots of changeups — kept them off-balance and out front,” Penninger said. Zubillaga and shortstop Gunnar Hogan worked some magic up the middle for the first DP. The other two South DPs

Mayor Susan Kluttz throws out the first pitch as North Hills dedicates its new baseball field.

Suns fight back

Mayor shows off her arm at North Hills Notes ‘n’ quotes ... orth Hills dedicated its new baseball field recently and it wanted someone prominent to throw out the first pitch. How ’bout the mayor? Susan Kluttz has had experience with athletics. She has thrown out first pitches for the minor-league team Piedmont Boll Weevils, and now the Kannapolis Intimidators. She has flipped the coin at the Mayor’s Cup football game between Catawba and Livingstone. Kluttz seemed a little RONNIE nervous when she took the GALLAGHER mound. “Nobody told me until about 10 minutes ago,” she said, “or I would’ve practiced.” Kluttz said before she threw out the pitch at a minor-league game years ago, she enlisted the help of little-league coaches Bud Mickle and Bryce Beard. “It’s been a long time since I’ve done it,” Kluttz smiled. “I’m from the old school where girls throw underhanded.” Kluttz was fretting for nothing. Her throw was fine, the crowd applauded, and

The school, which has around 300 students from kindergarten through 12th grade, now has 21 sports teams. Two of the teams, middle school basketball, and elementary volleyball, went undefeated this year. A soccer field is being completed. “The kids are really into sports here,” said athletics director Brian Cook, a Northwest Cabarrus graduate. “It’s real easy to get them to participate.” Maybe the kids work hard to succeed because they see how hard the coaches work. When the subject of a new baseball field came up, Cook and head coach Chris Price looked for fencing. They found it in Georgia, but when they arrived, the fence was still up.

PHOENIX — Amare Stoudemire answered his critics Suns 118 with an Lakers 109 exclamation point, and there will be no sweep in the Western Conference finals. Stoudemire matched his career playoff high with 42 points, 29 in the second half, and grabbed 11 rebounds to power the Phoenix Suns to a 118-109 victory Sunday night that cut the Los Angeles Lakers’ lead in the series to 2-1. “Just being aggressive, really going after it,” Stoudemire said. “Tonight I wanted to come out with some aggressiveness and get it going.” The Suns can pull even with a victory at home in Game 4 on Tuesday night. Phoenix, dominated inside in the first two games, won with its big men, and a big advantage at the free throw line. Robin Lopez, whose 7foot presence gave the Suns some much-needed toughness inside, scored 20 on 8of-10 shooting in 31 minutes,

SALISBURY POST

Rowan edges Burlington From staff reports Rowan County took advantage of six errors and beat Burlington-Graham 6-5 in American Legion baseball on Sunday. Due to bus issues, Rowan didn’t arrive in Graham until the scheduled starting time of 7 p.m. The teams agreed to play a seven-inning game. Rowan (1-1) trailed 5-3 going to the seventh, but a twoout error opened the door for a non-division victory by the short-handed visitors. All six runs that Rowan scored were unearned. Zack Simpson, Forrest Buchanan, winner Cody Laws, and Alex Litaker, who picked up the save, ventured to the mound for Rowan. Rowan is home tonight against Kernersville and on Tuesday against Eastern Randolph.  South Rowan is home tonight against Kannapolis.  Mocksville beat Randolph 9-8 in a crazy one on Sunday night to cap a tripleheader at Rich Park. It was scheduled for seven innings but lasted nine. Mocksville led 7-0, fell behind 8-7, then pulled it out in the ninth when Tyler Jordan doubled and scored on a bloop single. Mocksville plans to make

up a game at Stanly tonight.  Mooresville fell to Kernersville 8-3 on Sunday in a non-division game. Billy Nantz led the Moors with three hits. Aaron Meadows, Hunter Nanney and Chris Dula rapped doubles.

 Junior Legion Carson’s Junior Legion team opened with a sweep of Stanly County. Carson won 91 in a conference game and 63 in a game that won’t affect the standings. Ethan Free pitched six scoreless innings, fanned seven and scattered six hits in the opener. Devan Peacock had two hits and three RBIs. Patrick Hampton went 2-for3. Hampton, Josh Martin, Mitch Galloway and Greg Tonnesen knocked in runs.  In the nightcap, Caleb Trexler pitched three scoreless innings and fanned three. Blake Cauble completed the win. Scottie Hinson knocked in two runs. Carson is at Mocksville on Tuesday.

 Minor leagues Bobby Parnell (East Rowan) had a solid outing on Sunday and helped Buffalo beat Lehigh Valley 6-5. Parnell pitched the seventh

and eighth. He allowed one run and fanned five.  Jerry Sands (Catawba) doubled on Sunday, his 28th extra-base hit in 43 games for Great Lakes. Sands would win the Midwest League Triple Crown if the season ended today. He’s batting .378 with 14 homers and 34 RBIs.

 College baseball Pitt Community College beat Potomac State 9-1 on Saturday to earn the school’s first trip to the National Junior College World Series in Grand Junction, Colo. Trey Holmes (East Rowan) went 3-for-5 with two doubles and scored three runs. Zach Smith (East) scored a run for Pitt. Pitt opens up this Saturday night against Southern Nevada and catcher Bryce Harper, the likely No. 1 pick in the MLB draft next month.

 Intimidators fall The Kannapolis Intimidators let one get away on Sunday, losing to Asheville 13-11 after squandering an 11-4 lead. Ian Gac hit two homers for the Intimidators. Daniel Wagner (South Rowan) scored twice and knocked in a pair. The Intimidators are in Savannah tonight.

Day wins; Spieth steals show Associated Press Golf roundup ... IRVING, Texas — Jason Day nearly dropped out of the Byron Nelson Championship before it began. He wound up winning the tournament — even though most folks likely will remember Jordan Spieth as the big winner. Day fought through a rocky final round for a 2-over 72, but it was good enough to give the 22-year-old Australian the first win of his PGA Tour career. Still, the 2010 Nelson will go down for the remarkable Tour debut by Spieth, a 16-year-old junior at a local high school. Spieth was within three shots of the lead on the final nine holes, but dropped back into a tie for 16th. He shot a 2over 72 in the final round, his highest score of the tourna-

ment. His 4-under 276 was six strokes behind Day. Blake Adams, a 34-year-old PGA Tour rookie, shot a 72 to tie for second with Brian Gay, who shot a 63, followed by Jeff Overton (71). LPGA Tour GLADSTONE, N.J. — Sun Young Yoo won the Sybase Match Play Championship for her first LPGA Tour victory, beating Angela Stanford 3 and 1 at Hamilton Farm. Yoo, the 23-year-old South Korean player in her fifth LPGA Tour season, won the 13th and 14th holes with pars and took a 2-up lead with a 15foot putt for her first birdie of the match on the par-3 16th. The match ended when Stanford missed her birdie putt and conceded Yoo’s birdie. Yoo’s victory was the eighth straight by a foreign player and the 25th in the last

26 events. European Tour WENTWORTH, England — Simon Khan of England won the BMW PGA Championship by a stroke, shooting a 5-under 66 to come from seven strokes back and capture a tournament he played in only after receiving a late invitation. Nationwide Tour RALEIGH — Journeyman golfer John Riegger was declared the winner of the Nationwide Tour’s Rex Hospital Classic with a 54-hole total of 20-under 193 when the tournament was called due to rain. The 46-year-old never started the final round, which was delayed at the start by 3 hours due to heavy morning rains. The tournament was suspended at 1:45 p.m. as more storms rolled into the area, and nearly 2 inches of rain fell in less than 24 hours.

TUTTLE FROM 1B

Ryan Bostian, who will be one of Tuttle’s teammates at Catawba, knocked Tuttle’s first pitch out of the park. But Tuttle was still on the mound in the eighth, still firing, and Kannapolis won 5-3. Catawba took its first serious look at Tuttle this spring when he shut out Cox Mill and fanned eight. But they also wanted to see him against a stronger lineup. That’s when they watched him hold Mount Pleasant to five hits and one run. That was the clincher. Tuttle says he wanted to go to a smaller school and that Catawba was his first choice all along, but UNC Charlotte also scouted that Mount Pleasant game. The D-I 49ers showed flattering interest in Tuttle after that, enough interest to cause Gantt a sleepless night or two. But Gantt can rest easy now. “I’m real happy for John J. because Jim Gantt wins about 40 a year and contends for championships every year,” A.L. Brown coach Empsy Thompson said. “John’s taken his share of bumps and bruises for us, but now he’ll be on the flip side. He’s going to get to experience playing on great teams with great players.” Tuttle’s strong arm is partly hereditary (his father was an A.L. Brown quarterback in the 1970s), partly the result of a childhood spent flinging railroad-track rocks and baseballs. “I used to throw at Grandma’s house all day long,” Tuttle said. “I just kind of continued on from there. I was playing Dixie Youth when I was 8, and I was always a pitcher.”

MIKE LONDON/SALISBURY POST

Father John Tuttle and mother Cindy flank John J. Tuttle as he signs with Catawba. AD Ron Massey, uncle Slate Tuttle and Wonders coach Empsy Thompson are in the back. Elbow surgery posed a temporary setback, as he was entering high school. Thompson wanted to let Tuttle spend his freshman year with the jayvees, but he didn’t have that luxury. Tuttle wasn’t needed to pitch, but he was called up to the varsity to play third base. “We had a big void at third base and John filled it as a freshman,” Thompson said. “Then, from his sophomore year on, we’ve depended on him heavily to pitch, and he’s been great for us.” Hitting a May Day grand slam against Concord was the highlight of Tuttle’s sophomore year. The pitching breakout for Tuttle came in Legion ball six weeks later. The Kannapolis Legion team was drained of experienced hurlers after a stretch of five games in six days, so Tuttle was handed the ball. He went the distance, shut out rival Concord Post 51 and struck out eight. Since that night, he’s been a frontline pitcher. He posted 14 Ks against Concord last summer and looked sharp in the 2009 Area III All-Star Game at Asheboro’s

McCrary Park. While he’s a standout pitcher, Tuttle is also a good fielder and hitter. He’s probably not a college shortstop, but he’s capable of playing second base, third base or first base for the Indians. Besides competing for pitching innings next season, he’ll get a chance to show what he can do with his bat. He batted over .300 this season with three homers, 19 RBIs and 10 steals and drew lot of walks. “We’ll have to see what happens, but he does have a chance to be a two-way guy for us,” Gantt said. “We’re excited about him, and we appreciate Coach Thompson putting in a good word for us. We consider Empsy a friend of our program.” Tuttle’s looking forward to being in the home dugout at Newman Park. The Kannapolis Legion fell to Rowan 12-2 last summer with Tuttle playing shortstop. “I’ve played in Legion games at Newman Park, and that’s a really great field and a great atmosphere,” Tuttle said. “It’s just nice to have a good school that’s 20 minutes from the house.”

CHICAGO — Dustin Byfuglien has emerged as a force for Blackhawks 4 the Chicago Sharks 2 Blackhawks and now he is taking his game to the highest level. He and his teammates are headed to the Stanley Cup finals. Byfuglien scored his third go-ahead goal of the Western Conference finals, converting on a third-period power play as Chicago rallied to beat the San Jose Sharks 4-2 on Sunday and complete a four-game sweep that sent the Blackhawks to the NHL finals for the first time since 1992. The 257-pound Byfuglien was parked in front of the net with 7 seconds left on the power play. “Seems like he likes the

The Blackhawks celebrate a goal and a sweep. spotlight. He likes being the hero. He steps up in big time,” teammate Patrick Sharp said. “He told me before the third period he was going to be the guy to go get it. True to his word, he got it.” Chicago will play either Montreal or Philadelphia and be in search of its first NHL title since 1961, more than two decades before many of the current players were born. “It’s an honor to be going to the Stanley Cup. We beat a very good team over there. It wasn’t easy,” Byfuglien said.

The Suns, the secondbest 3-point shooting team in NBA history in the regular season, were just 5 of 20. But Jason Richardson was 4 of 7, including one with 26 seconds to go to put the lid on the triumph, snapping the Lakers’ eightgame playoff winning streak. “We certainly didn’t come out to play the way I wanted,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said, “and we certainly didn’t play the way I wanted at the end.” Richardson scored 19. Steve Nash had 17 points and 15 assists. Stoudemire, who had just nine rebounds in the first two games and had been criticized for his lack of defense and absence of fire, scored repeatedly on drives to the basket, when he either made the basket, was fouled, or both. The All-Star power forward, who can opt out of the final year of his contract after this season, made 10-of-12 shots in the second half, scoring 16 in the third

I came out tonight with a chip on my shoulder and it was a must win for us.” Phoenix coach Alvin Gentry said he knew Stoudemire would respond. “He knew he didn’t play well in L.A.,” Gentry said. As for Lopez, Gentry called the second-year pro’s offense “a big surprise.” Lopez had been out since March 28 with a bulging disk before playing in this series. The Suns played a lot of zone defense after the Lakers averaged 126 points and shot 58 percent in the first two games. Los Angeles shot 48 percent in this one. The Lakers had a 27-4 advantage in secondchance points, but were outscored 18-3 on fastbreak points. “When they started making shots, we had to go to the zone,” Gentry said. “Tonight it worked.”

some adjustments at the plate and we did,” South coach Michael Lowman said. “We started getting much better pitches to hit and put together a big inning in the fourth.” South got six in a hurry. Houston’s two-run double cut into the deficit. After, Zubillaga tied it 4-4 with a sac fly, Miles drove a low curve over the fence in center for the lead. He used an 8-iron. It wasn’t a bad pitch, but Miles is Miles, and he went down and got it. “I’d been struggling a little bit, and there’s been a little pressure wondering about the draft and all,” Miles said. “I’m just trying to stay focused and help us win. We’ve had some luck, but, hey, we’re 3-0.”

He was followed by his son, Bill Jr., a ruthless but effective manager who helped expand the sport past its Southern roots. “I always remember how people looked at us and, quite honestly, made fun of us,” said former driver and TV analyst Darrell Waltrip, who helped induct Johnson. “That we were a regional sport with a bunch of rednecks that JOHNSON wore ballcaps and uniforms with patches all over them. “When I look at what Bill France Sr. and Jr. and Brian and Lesa (France Kennedy) and everybody have done with this sport, to take it from that to where it is today, it makes me very

until retiring in 2003. Hendrick had many examples. “You have that little blank, blank, blank Jeff Gordon down here in my office in the morning at 9,” Hendrick recalled him saying after they won a race at Indianapolis and knocked sponsor drinks off the roof. “If you can’t make it and he can’t make it, don’t you even think about carrying your car to Watkins Glen, you’re done.” But before Bill Jr. hung up, he had one other message. “But it doesn’t affect our fishing trip.” The crowd burst into laughter on a day that included a few tears, too. “I know our entire family is obviously very proud of our father and our grandfather,” Brian France said. “But this was today very much about three other great champions and the whole sport getting proper recognition for what’s happened over the last six decades.”

proud.” In a ballroom adjacent to the $195 million Hall of Fame that opened two weeks ago, the France family shared in a celebration. “The one thing that really touched me most is the statue of my father,” France Kennedy said of the sculpture of Bill Jr. in the hall. “It’s personal, but him on the director’s chair, just like he’d always be outside of that NASCAR hauler, the likeness of it is amazing.” Memories were overflowing as John Cassidy, NASCAR’s first legal counsel, gave Bill France Sr.’s induction speech to open the ceremony. “I prefer to call him a dreamer who was a man of action, someone who turns dreams into reality,” he said. After Jim France collected his father’s induction ring and donated it back to the Hall of Fame, car owner Rick Hendrick gave the induction speech for Bill Jr., who took over for his father in 1972 and ruled with absolute authority

Dedicating the North Hills baseball field are, from left, assistant Derek Binns, head coach Chris Price, Mayor Susan Kluttz, headmaster Matt Mitchell and athletics director Brian Cook.

“We had to manually get it down,” Price said. They hauled it here and put it up. Over the summer they’ll redo the entire infield and outfield. The backstop will be finished and dugouts are going to be added. “I can’t wait until next year,” Price said. The mayor appreciates the effort because she appreciates sports. “It’s essential for kids to get involved in sports,” said Kluttz, who once started an aerobics class because her daughter didn’t have a place to go. “Right now, the city is working on youth initiatives for gang prevention,” Kluttz said, adding that when ways of keeping youths out of gangs are discussed, sports and recreation are always a topic of conversation. The excitement on the North Hills campus for the new baseball field brought a smile to her face. “I’m really thrilled for this school,” Kluttz said. • In the public-school world, Rowan County has opened some eyes on the state scene this year. With three individual state champions in the 3A track meet Saturday, this sports-crazed area now has six individual and two team

state titles in that sport alone. Salisbury won the team title in tennis, West in football, Salisbury in girls basketball, North’s girls in track and Salisbury’s boys in track. Salisbury’s Hannah Lebowitz (tennis) and Roy Dixon (golf) were also individual state champs. • As far as the best girls soccer team in the county? No problem picking that one. West Rowan played nine games against county opponents. The Falcons finished 9-0 with eight shutouts. They outscored those nine foes 63-1. • But it’s East Rowan that’s on everyone’s mind right now. On Tuesday, it will be East Rowan and more East Rowan: • Mike Waddell’s softball team — with a record of 22-1 — plays at home against Marvin Ridge in the third round of the 3A playoffs at 5 p.m. • Brian Hightower’s baseball team — with a record of 26-2 — is playing at home against Northwest Cabarrus in the N.C. West’s Final Four at 7 p.m. Mustang Mania is alive and well. Will East continue Rowan County’s state championship run? Stay tuned. • What happened to Scotty Robinson? The last time we mentioned the former Salisbury star and East Carolina defensive end, he was going to Cleveland for a tryout with the Browns.

Didn’t work out, according to his agent, Brian Anderson. “We got a few calls before the draft,” Anderson wrote in an e-mail. “We felt he would at least get a free-agent deal but it did not happen. He is on some priority lists with some NFL clubs.” Anderson said the next step for Robinson is trying out for the Canadian Football League or the United Football League. • Anderson said Jamelle Cuthbertson is getting a chance. The former Catawba running back has been invited to a three-day workout with the Canadian Football League’s Montreal Alouettes. The Alouettes won the 2009 Grey Cup. Cuthbertson finished his Catawba career with several school records. • You probably won’t have to travel far for the North Piedmont Conference basketball tournament next year. Word out of Carson, is that the league wants that school to play host to the event for a second straight year. • Joe Pinyan has proven he’s a winner on the football field. On the baseball field, he he’s also one of the best as well. Pinyan, a long-time umpire, has been selected to umpire one of the state title series. Pinyan said he was unsure which one he’ll be a part of. • Contact Ronnie Gallagher at 704-797-4287 or rgallagher@salisburypost.com.

Span the Man is injured MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Twins centerfielder Denard Span left the game Sunday against the Milwaukee Brewers in the sixth inning with a bruised right shoulder. Span was injured when he was hit by a pitch from Marco Estrada in the third inning. He remained in the game, getting a single in the fourth and playing defense in the sixth inning before Alexi Casilla pinch hit for him in the bottom of the inning. When Span goes down, the Twins have a tough time replacing him. They do not have another natural centerfielder on the roster.  ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Chicago Cubs struggling third baseman Aramis Ramirez is getting some extra time to recover from recurring soreness in his left thumb. Ramirez was out of the lineup Sunday for the third time in four days, and the Cubs have a day off today.

Wakefield back in the win column Associated Press PHILADELPHIA— Tim Wakefield pitched eight shutout innings for his first victory in nearly a year, and the Boston Red Sox roughed up Roy Halladay in an 8-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. Kevin Youkilis tripled, homered and scored three runs for Boston. Wakefield allowed five hits and two walks in earning his first win since July 8, 2009, against Oakland. Wakefield (1-2) also earned his 190th career victory as the Red Sox took two of three from the Phillies. Mets 6, Yankees 4 NEW YORK— Jason Bay homered twice off an ineffective CC Sabathia, and the New York Mets held off the slumping Yankees behind Johan Santana’s stellar pitching.

Doumit’s homer in 10th dooms Atlanta PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ryan Doumit homered with two outs in the 10th inoff Pirates 3 ning Braves 2 Takashi Saito for his third hit, helping the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Atlanta Braves 32 on Sunday and avoid a threegame sweep. Doumit’s first career gameending homer was his fourth of the season and ended Atlanta’s five-game winning streak and Pittsburgh’s three-game losing streak. The Pirates averaged

only two runs while dropping seven of their previous eight at home. Saito (0-2) retired the first two batters in the 10th before Doumit drove a waist-high pitch into the right field seats, only the sixth homer by Pittsburgh in its last 21 home games. Octavio Dotel (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the victory, stranding two runners by striking out Martin Prado, who went 0 for 5 while twice grounding into double plays. The Braves had won 10 of 12

overall and their last 10 against NL Central teams. Pirates starter Zach Duke followed a 2-1 victory Tuesday over Philadelphia and Roy Halladay by allowing only an unearned run over seven innings, giving up seven hits but striking out five and walking none. Duke didn’t figure in the decision after pinch-hitter Eric Hinske tied it at 2 by homering in the eighth against Evan Meek, Hinske’s fourth homer and second in as many games. The Braves’ lone run off

Duke came after shortstop Ronny Cedeno drew an error by throwing wildly on Yunel Escobar’s grounder in the second, and Melky Cabrera and David Ross followed with singles. Braves right fielder Jason Heyward didn’t start because of a sore left thumb after originally being in the starting lineup, but walked as a pinch-hitter in the 10th and stayed in the game defensively. Heyward had four hits in the first two games of the series, including a home run and double.

You could be particularly fortunate in establishing a couple of new friendships in the year ahead that will turn out to be more meaningful to you than usual. They will be with individuals whose closeness will last a lifetime. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Your friendly behavior can sow an abundance of seeds for a future harvest of goodwill, so try to be as amicable as possible. Thoughtfulness and tact will take you a long way. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — There is a good chance that you could be particularly lucky in attaining something that might be of small worth to others but will be of substantial value to you. You’ll make the most of it. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Our minds can be extremely powerful, and you could prove it if you think you’re lucky and truly believe it. Regardless of the conditions you’re facing, maintain a positive attitude. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — This could be one of those days when conditions in general should be quite favorable for you. It might be a good time to address those matters that pertain to your finances or career. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — There should be no need to delegate important, critical assignments to others at this time, because as chance would have it, you’re the one who is the most capable of pulling off something big. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Think in expansive terms, because it looks like something in which you’ll be involved with another could produce far bigger dividends than anybody thought possible. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You’re apt to be far more fortunate than usual when it comes to a new endeavor or enterprise in which you’re involved with a friend or two. Go for broke. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t waste your valuable time on insignificant matters. Your ambitions and desires are likely to mesh extremely well together in ways that would make success imminent. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — The last thing you should do is put limitations on your imagination or creativity. All the signs are signaling that you will do particularly well in matters involving these traits. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Look for the possibility of personal gain coming to you from other than your usual channels. An especially good break could come about through someone who you helped previously. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Once you show a willingness to roll up your sleeves and go to work, others will be as cooperative as they can be to help you achieve your aims. Much can be accomplished working together.

Make declarer work for his contract BY PHILLIP ALDER

United Feature Syndicate

To be told that you are a difficult opponent is one of the highest compliments you can be paid. A few players are good at making their opponents work for every trick. This week we will look at some deals in which the defenders should make life as tough as possible for declarer. In this one, South is in six clubs. West understandably leads the heart king. How should the play go? When South opened three clubs, showing a seven-card suit and 6-10 high-card points, North, unaccustomed as he was to 13-card fits, checked to see that he and his partner had the same colored backs to their cards. When he saw that they were identical, he took a stab at six clubs. South won the first trick with dummy’s heart ace and cashed the three diamonds, discarding his heart loser on the last of them. Then declarer crossed to his hand with a trump and led a spade toward the dummy. Now was West’s big moment. He had to play a low spade with no hesitation, in the hope that South would misguess, calling for dummy’s jack. It could not be right to win with the spade ace and cash the heart queen. If that were the winning defense, declarer would have begun with 1-3-2-7 distribution and would have thrown his spade loser on the third diamond, not a heart. He

would then have conceded one heart trick and ruffed his third heart on the board to make the slam. Agreed, it is not easy to think of all of this in the heat of battle, but it is a reliable general principle that when declarer leads toward a king-jack holding, second hand plays low.

‘Shrek Forever After’ tops box office LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Shrek Forever After” roared its way to the top of the box office, making $71.3 million in its opening weekend. But the fourth film in the monster franchise from DreamWorks Animation had the weakest debut of all “Shrek” sequels, according to studio estimates Sunday. “Shrek 2,” from 2004, opened with $108 million. “Shrek the Third,” from 2007, made $121.6 million in its first weekend. And the latest installment was available for the first time in 3-D and IMAX 3-D, where ticket prices are higher — up to $19 in Manhattan. “Shrek” made just under $5 million on IMAX screens.

Based on the sheer size of this organization, its claim at being the most formidable is rightly so. People who suffer from mental illness were often shunned, labeled as “crazy” and “put away” from public view. Thanks to further study and medical understanding of these illnesses, sufferers now often have several treatment options and do not require institutionalization, in most cases. The public’s view of these disorders has taken several steps in the right direction; however, there is still a stigma attached to mental illness.

about shingles. I would like to give you a “recipe” my mother-in-law gave me. I know it worked for her, my father-in-law, my husband and me. Simply take this combination three times per day: one 400 IU vitamin E, two 100-milligram B-complex and four 1,000-milligram slow-release vitamin C tablets. When the shingles symptoms are gone, stop the vitamin E and B-complex and taper off the vitamin C slowly. If you have diarrhea symptoms, eat cheese. Dear Reader: I have not heard of this and have no idea why it would work. You failed to mention how long before symptoms typically start to disappear when using this “remedy.” I would also like to mention that the tolerable upper limit for those over 19 for vitamin C is 2,000 milligrams, and for vitamin E,

Man charged in stabbing death The Salisbury Police Department has arrested a man in connection with a fatal stabbing. Aaron Anderson Wilks Jr., 53, of 216 S. Craige St., was arrested and charged Sunday with first-degree murder in the death of a Salisbury man. Police responded to a 911 call at 2:10 a.m. Sunday at 216 S. Craige St. Upon arrival, officers found 49-year-old Timothy Alan Perkins laying in the doorway with multiple stab wounds. Perkins was transported to Rowan Regional Medical Center where he lat- WILKS er died from his injuries. Police say a verbal altercation between a woman and Wilks took place at the residence earlier in the evening. He left after the incident. According to police, a second altercation ensued when Wilks returned to the residence to find Perkins present. Police say Perkins was stabbed multiple times. Wilks is currently in jail, without bond, pending his first court appearance, which is set for today.

Floyd Daugherty Sr. has a knack for finding golf balls lost by other players during their rounds at The Warrior and Corbin Hills courses.

Veteran realizes he did ‘a little something’ BY MARK WINEKA

mwineka@salisburypost.com

LANDIS — Floyd Daughtery braced himself near an open window of the B-17, getting ready to bail out over France. When he first heard the pilot’s order to exit, Daugherty had been in his tailgunner’s position at the back of the bomber, the Canadian Club. He strapped on his parachute but couldn’t force open the door at the tail. So he moved to the waist of the plane, where six other crew members already had jumped out. Daugherty had never parachuted before, not even on a static line. Jumping now, from a height where breathing made crew members’ oxygen masks freeze, Daugherty was thinking only of surviving the fall. He would worry about being captured by Germans later.

PROFILE

In retirement, 87-year-old Floyd Daugherty gives his wife, Margaret, a hard time about all the ornaments she has collected for their front yard. He feels the same about the magnets she

sticks all over their kitchen appliances. Margaret loves that he golfs, which affords her some peace and quiet. “She runs me off every day,” he says. Daugherty and his wife draw lines, too, when it comes to NASCAR. “He’s a Dale Earnhardt Jr., and I’m a Jeff Gordon,” Margaret says of their favorite drivers. Daughtery just scratches his head at Dale Jr.’s run of bad luck. Inside his Landis home, Daugherty apologizes for even talking about his World War II experiences, though they’re something he increasingly has wanted to share through the years. Sometimes he talks to school groups. “The older I get, the more I think I done a little something to win the war,” he says with pride. 

Seconds before Daugherty was about to jump from the bomber, the pilot asked about the status of the ball-turret gunner, who had never heard the bail-out order. Daugherty moved off the window and went to retrieve him. Meanwhile, the plane was falling at 350 mph. By managing to pull out of the dive near 10,000 feet, the pilot also smothered the

Move afoot in Congress to ban drop-side cribs

The partisan budget rhetoric is similar to discussions during last year’s session. Democrats said they’re closing large budget gaps in part through stimulus money and spending cuts. They also approved tax increases in 2009 that will expire in 2011 to make up the rest. Republicans countered the true gaps were much lower and didn’t require higher taxes. This year, Democrats put the gap at between $800 million and $1 billion. The Senate budget cut the spending plan already approved to start July 1 by another 3 percent. But Republicans argued the $19 billion plan actually raises spending by more than $400

WASHINGTON (AP) — The baby crib, usually a safe haven for little ones, became a death trap for 6-month-old Bobby Cirigliano. The side rail on his drop-side crib slid off the tracks and trapped his head and neck between the mattress and the malfunctioning side rail. His face pressed against the mattress, the boy suffocated. “I just don’t feel complete anymore,” says his mother, Susan Cirigliano of North Bellmore on New York’s Long Island. Bobby was one of at least 32 infants and toddlers since 2000 who suffocated or were strangled in a drop-side crib, which has a side that moves up and down to allow parents to lift children from the cribs more easily than cribs with fixed sides. Drop-sides, around for decades and probably slept in by many of today’s parents, are suspected in an additional 14 infant fatalities during that time. The Consumer Product Safety Commission, which regulates cribs, has warned about the problem. Its chairman, Inez Tenenbaum, has pledged to ban the manufacture and sale of cribs by the end of the year with a new performance standard that would make fixed-side cribs mandatory. It could be several months into 2011 before becoming effective. The industry has already started phasing out drop-sides and big retailers such as Babies R Us and Wal-Mart have taken them off sale floors. Yet there are still plenty for sale on the Internet, and that’s part of the reason Congress is getting involved. “There’s a great urgency here. We have to make sure that no parent is unaware that drop-side cribs could kill their children,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, DN.Y., said in an Associated Press interview. She plans to introduce legislation this week to outlaw the manufacture, sale and resale of all drop-side cribs and ban them from day-care centers and hotels. Gillibrand wants to accelerate efforts for a ban, from Congress or the CPSC, and highlight concerns about the cribs to parents who are using them. “There still are thousands and thousands of children who are sleeping every night in drop-side cribs and we need to protect them,” said Gillibrand. She outlined her bill at a news confer-

2010 N.C. budget debate brings 2011 into view BY GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press

RALEIGH — Republicans complained during Senate debate last week over the chamber’s $19 billion budget for next year that Democrats haven’t prepared North Carolina state government for the fiscal woes facing the state in 2011. That’s when lawmakers won’t have more than $1.6 billion in federal stimulus funds currently used to fill holes for increasing Medicaid costs, the public schools and universities. Temporary income and sales tax increases generating $1.3 billion annually also are set to expire. And pent-up demands from the state employee pension funds and health insur-

ance will have to be resolved. “This budget total ignores the $3-plus billion cliff the state is about to go over in the next fiscal year,” Senate Minority Leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham, said last week on the day the bill passed largely along party lines. Democrats acknowledge the trouble ahead but argue they’re cutting spending and making tough choices so the state can jump out of the blocks as the economy recovers — helping tax collections in 2011 rebound and partially fix the problem. “I believe this is the budget that we need for this day and time,” said Sen. Linda Garrou, DForsyth, the Senate’s chief budget-writer.

But with interest groups howling about a second year of painful cuts and voters looking for someone to blame this November, Democrats are choosing political survival over instituting sweeping changes in the “short” session. Any dramatic changes will wait until next year, when they hope to still have the majority in the chambers and perhaps get a little more stimulus money from Capitol Hill. Republicans are “absolutely right, it’s going to be worse next time, and I do wish that we could do more,” said Rep. Jim Crawford, D-Granville, co-chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, which will offer its version in two weeks, but “we’re not going to cut everybody off in an election year.” William Lloyd Eidson Odell "Bubba" Sylvester Summers, Jr.

YESTERDAY Here’s a postcard photograph of Catawba College’s Hedrick Administration building when it was being marketed as home for the Salisbury Normal and Industrial Institute. ‘In my judgment,’ U.S. Sen. Lee Overman said at the time, ‘there is no better location for a school of this kind than Salisbury, N.C. I believe that every dollar entrusted to the care of the Rev. (George) Atkinson will be expended wisely, economically and judiciously.’ This building was originally built for a military school but was never used for that purpose. Historian Susan Goodman Sides says efforts to raise money for use of the building as the Normal and Industrial Institute — to be called Faith Hall — also were in vain. Founded in Newton in 1851, Catawba College came to Salisbury in 1925. Today’s administration building is named for J.T. Hedrick of Lexington. He was a Reformed Church leader and college trustee. The postcard is from Sides’ collection.

training sessions. HIIT is a form of cardio that is beneficial to burning fat in a short and intense workout. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 15 to 30 minutes. Most HIIT sessions have a 2:1 ratio in terms of time. Example, 60 seconds jog and 30 seconds sprint. Personally, I believe you need to condition your basic level first before you start doing interval training. If you have never done anything (or it has been a while) start to walk/jog/run/ bike or whatever cardio you like first. Get your body used to exercising.

The list includes some of the nation’s premier art museums, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as science centers, children’s museums and other sites in all 50 states. The program, called Blue Star Museums, is being announced Monday in San Diego, where 14 museums will participate. The offer for active duty military personnel and their families runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day. It was the brainchild of Kathy Roth-Douquet, chairwoman of the group Blue Star Families. Her husband, Marine Corps Col. Greg Douquet, is on his third deployment to Afghanistan.

This summer, they’re planning a road trip along the East Coast to visit museums. Normally, a $20 ticket to MoMA in New York might rule it out, she said. Now they could also stop for free at Washington’s Corcoran Gallery of Art or New York’s Jewish Museum. NEA Chairman Rocco Landesman said he was surprised by how many museums joined the effort, despite the poor economy, from the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum to the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Nebraska. “I think it is good karma for the museums,” he said. “Long-term, it promotes museum-going and engagement with the arts.” Also, over Memorial Day weekend in New York City, Sen. Kristen Gillibrand has announced more than 50 museums and historic sites will offer free admission to military personnel and veterans.

“You can feel a little alone in America right now, being part of the 1 percent that’s involved in fighting these wars,” she said, adding that the recession has changed priorities for many people. “When the kids and I go to museums this summer, we know we’re being welcomed. It will make us feel less alone.” Roth-Douquet, who lives in Parris Island, S.C., said military bases are sometimes far from cultural centers, though museums can be a good escape. The Defense Department is helping to promote the offer, and Roth-Douquet said some military bases may coordinate bus trips. When her family was based in London for a time, she and her son and daughter spent an entire summer visiting museums because many were free. As a result, she said, her 8year-old son Charlie now draws for hours each day.

Lee Overman said at the time, “there is no better location for a school of this kind than Salisbury, N.C. I believe that every dollar entrusted to the care of the Rev. (George) Atkinson will be expended wisely, economically and judiciously.” This building was originally built for a military school but was never used for that purpose. Historian Susan Goodman Sides says efforts to raise money for use of the building as the Normal and Industrial Institute — to be called Faith Hall — also were in vain. Founded in Newton in 1851, Catawba College came to Salisbury in 1925. Today’s administration building is named for J.T. Hedrick of Lexington, who was a Reformed Church leader and college trustee. The postcard is from Sides’ collection.

Cub Scouts celebrate centennial with weekend event BY HUGH FISHER

hfisher@salisburypost.com

BADIN — Cub Scouts from Rowan County and beyond got an early taste of summer camp fun and learned about Scouting history this weekend at Camp John J. Barnhardt. In honor of the Boy Scouts of America’s centennial year, Cub Scouts from the Central North Carolina Council’s eight districts gathered for a special 100th Anniversary Encampment. The event kicked off Friday with a campfire gathering and entertainment, continued with games and activities all day Saturday and concluded Sunday with a chapel service and closing HUGH FISHER / SALISBURY POST ceremony. About 540 Cub Scouts, Ben Lavigne, 5, and Jacob Lavigne, 7, race sailboats during Saturday’s Cub Scout centennial boys in first through fifth celebration at Camp John J. Barnhardt. About 540 Cub Scouts took part in the event.

grades, took part in the encampment, according to Thomas Griffin, a Rowan District volunteer. Counting their family members and volunteers who also attended, about 1,300 people total came out for the weekend’s events, event director David Roof said. “It’s definitely exceeded our expectations,” said Roof, who is also Cubmaster of Pack 443, based at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Salisbury. Many families braved rainy weather to camp out Friday and Saturday nights, making fun not just for the Cub Scouts but for their parents and Scouting-age brothers and sisters, too. “In the Cub Scouts, we do family camping,” Roof said. So, he said, kids got a chance to bond and also to hear stories of their parents’

camping trips. In keeping with the historic theme, the encampment featured re-enactments of early American camping and demonstrations of flintlocks and muskets by professionals. One of those men, Robert Cochran, does historic demonstrations for Salisbury Parks and Recreation. He volunteered his time this weekend to teach how pioneers camped and hunted for food. Not surprisingly, a lot of Cub Scouts said the muskets were their favorite part of the event. The district Pinewood Derby race was held alongside a “heritage” race with cars built according to the original rules from the 1950s.

Honoring a hero Grave marking ceremony commemorates a local Revolutionary War veteran BY KARISSA MINN

kminn@salisburypost.com

More than 200 years ago, Elias Barber donated land for a church in western Rowan County. On Sunday, a ceremony at that church honored his contribution to the county and his service as a military veteran. Red, white and blue flowers surrounded Barber’s headstone in wreaths and baskets. Mostly dressed in the same colors, more than two dozen people stood in the midday sun to watch as his grave was marked with the word “Patriot.” Dr. Sam Powell, vice president of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution South Atlantic District, helped conduct the ceremony. “The grave marking ceremony

is one of the most solemn things that we do,” he said. “We do this to ensure that the sacrifices our ancestors made to provide us the freedoms and independence that we enjoy today will be properly recorded and continually remembered.” The Sons of the American Revolution is an organization of men 18 years and older who can trace their ancestry back to someone who fought in or supported the American Revolution. Members of local SAR chapters, as well as chapters of Daughters of the American Revolution and Children of the American Revolution, presented wreaths and saluted Barber’s grave. “The marker that we will unveil today indicates service to the United States of America, and that this hero of the American Revolution is a military veteran who took up

arms in support of the ideals on which this country was founded,” Powell said. Grady Hall, governor of the N.C. Order of Founders and Patriots of America, spoke about Barber’s history in Rowan County. During the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution, General Nathaniel Greene came through western Rowan County on his way to the Battle of Guilford Courthouse. Family tradition holds that Elias Barber, a private in the St. Mary’s County Maryland State Militia, came through with him at that time. In 1794, a missionary expedition then led about 20 families, including the Barbers, to settle in western Rowan County. Barber’s family donated some land and a log The stone ‘Patriot’ marker on Elias

Barber's grave commemorates him See HERO, 4A as a veteran of the Revolutionary War.

Remembering 4 proms and 2 left feet, but only 1 first kiss In 1967, I was invited to a pizza party for a youth group at a church by the girl who would become my first girlfriend MACK (pizza is WILLIAMS often maligned for its caloric and cholesterol content, but sometimes good can come of it). I

went to East Rowan, and she was a student at another Rowan County high school bearing the name of a different direction of the compass. We went to many movies and places together, and due to her being a year younger, from another school and my having met her in my junior year, we were able to attend four junior-senior proms together at our respective schools. She was very pretty and sweet, and

had a normal hair-do, not like the “beehive,” “poofed-out” hair often seen on those old black-and-white high school senior class pictures displayed on Internet adds saying: “Find Your Old Classmates.” I lacked the talent for dancing, being able to just get by with the simple moving of my feet back and forth. Actually, the only talent really required for the attending of a high school prom is finding

yourself in the fortuitous circumstance of being acquainted with someone who wishes also to attend the event, and with you. The local rock bands performed many of the hits of those days, songs now featured in television ads where collections of them, hawked by aging rock stars, can be had for four easy payments of $29.95! The decorations of the prom were very pretty and seemed to mean more to us for

having been fashioned by our peers instead of our teachers. This girl was the first girl whom I had ever kissed. I have a memory of kissing her in a church hallway on Christmas Eve, when no one else was looking. I also remember kissing her outside that same church on Christmas Eve, with the remnants of a recently fallen snow all around. The first time we kissed was in her living room. As we

kissed, I closed my eyes, and that touch — in my eyelid-enclosed night — always remains stored in my mind. In this recollection, out of respect for her, I’ve taken special note not to mention my old girlfriend’s name, and to identify neither the church nor her high school. I even purposefully failed to mention whether she was a blond, a brunette, or.....Uh Oh!, I’d best keep silent.

Starting this month, Cheerwine will launch its “Long Live Leisure Tour” and travel to select retailers, events and college hangouts across the South in a refurbished, tricked-out Volkswagen bus that one fan will win. The soft drink created the tour to engage consumers directly, allowing them to sample products and spread word of its new rally cry, “Long Live Leisure!” Tom Barbitta, vice president of marketing for Cheerwine, said the tour is a unique way to make a splash by brining its own form of media — the bus— directly to each store. “We’re a one-of-a-kind beverage that wanted to bring a memorable experience directly to consumers and leverage our size and nimbleness to our advantage,” he said. Cheerwine equipped the tour’s centerpiece, the “Leisure Bus,” with everything the winner will need to enjoy leisure time, including a fridge stocked full of the soft drink, a flat-screen TV, an Xbox, a surfboard and more. The bus’ exterior features a custom paint job and Cheerwine’s leisure characters, with a custom upholstered interior. The winner will be selected via a random drawing. Fans can enter the drawing at any of the tour stops, on Cheerwine’s Facebook page at www.facebook. com/cheerwine or via the Cheerwine website at www.itsasoftdrink.com. The “Leisure Bus” reflects Cheerwine’s brand positioning as the perfect beverage to enjoy kicking back and relaxing. Still a family-owned company, Cheerwine didn’t hire a third-party street team company to manage its “Long Live Leisure Tour.” Instead, the college-age kids of Cheerwine employees will drive the vehicle and sample at the various stops. The “Long Live Leisure Tour” will travel to various cities throughout the summer and fall, with stops confirmed closer to the dates. Kicking off the tour on its home turf, Cheerwine will spend the first week visiting various Walmart stores and other retailers in the Triad area and then off to the Salisbury/Charlotte market during “Speed Week.” The van

building for Christ Church, organized in 1817 and consecrated in 1927. Elizabeth Wainwright, his wife, taught Sunday school to the children. Barber and another early father of the church, Thomas Chunn, disagreed on whether the cemetery should be placed on the west side or east side of the church. Each one felt that placing the cemetery on the other side would ruin the nearby spring. Chunn was buried on the east side, and one of Barber’s children was buried on the west, establishing two cemeteries. One or both of them was right, because the spring was indeed ruined. This division was eventually closed, though, as the cemeteries grew into one. “Today we honor Elias,” Hall said while standing in that cemetery. “As we do, we remember that the fiber of this community has been greatly enriched and influenced by those early families.” Rebecca Jane Barber Floyd, a sixth-generation direct descendant of Barber’s, participated in the ceremony at Christ Episcopal Church in Cleveland . She pulled back a cloth to reveal the stone “Patriot” marker in front of Barber’s headstone. “I got very misty-eyed,” Floyd said after the ceremony. “I think they did a beauti-

In 2002, Floyd and her sister approached the LandTrust for Central North Carolina to help preserve their farmland and agreed to a conservation ease-

ment on the land. “We’re trying to maintain the farm as it has always been,” Floyd said. The importance of the past was a theme brought up more than once during the ceremony. “If the past is indeed a prologue, then a glimpse into the past can provide a source of wisdom and inspiration for future generations,” Powell said. “As we honor Elias Barber today, let us be mindful of his service to our nation, and let us rededicate ourselves to the principles which he held sacred.” After the cermony, Powell said that families like Floyd’s research their ancestors to gain membership in the SAR and DAR. They must show a lineage descent from one who either fought in or supported the American Revolution. Through that research, it is often found that the gravestones of these ancestors don’t reference their service. Some aren’t even marked at all. “We record that they were veterans of the American Revolution by having either a stone or brass marker applied to the grave,” Powell said. “They are indeed veterans. A lot of people don’t make that connection.” The SAR Revolutionary War Graves Register now includes 140,000 names and grave locations, he said. “It’s our hope,” Powell said, “to properly mark and include in this registry as many of these patriots as we can find.”

ROCKWELL — William Lloyd Eidson, age 74, of Rockwell, went to Heaven Saturday, May 22, 2010. Lloyd was born Jan. 30, 1936, to Pauline Hartman Eidson and Frank Eidson. He was raised on Chesnut Hill. He went to Wiley, Frank B. John, and Boyden High Schools in Salisbury. In February 1954, Lloyd joined the Air Force and made that his first career.

He repaired and installed computers all over the hospital until he retired in Dec. 1997. Lloyd was an active firefighter during the 1980's at Rockwell Rural Fire Department. He was an avid fisherman when his health allowed. He taught Sunday School at St. James Lutheran Church and Lowerstone Church.

Coastal police increase waterway patrols WILMINGTON (AP) — Police in coastal North Carolina counties plan to add more waterway patrols this summer to increase enforcement of boating laws, the StarNews of Wilmington reported Sunday. Brunswick County deputies will man two boats 12 hours a day with resource officers who are out of school for the summer. Capt. Charles Wilson said the patrols will last after dark when many boaters are leaving their fishing spots or heading home from restaurants. Hanover County deputies also will man two boats, with a staff of four deputies and a

lieutenant, said Sheriff Ed McMahon. “We’re out there to try to educate people and make things safer, but at the same time enforce laws,” he said. Brunswick County’s patrols will include an air boat that has already been used this year to rescue a couple stuck in mud in a marsh near Oak Island. The increase in patrols could lead to more citations. Last year, Brunswick officers boarded 248 boats to check for safety equipment and violations, such as drunken driving. They gave out almost 200 verbal and written warnings for equipment vio-

lations and five boaters were charged with being impaired while boating, according to sheriff’s department records. The Carolina Beach Police Department hopes its stepped-up patrols can curb theft — the most-reported crime on the water near the shore as people steal items from moored boats. The local patrols are in addition to the U.S. Coast Guard and the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission whose officers are at public boat ramps and crowded inlets. Those officers also respond to boating accidents. “We don’t have a routine,”

said Lt. Matthew Long with the Wildlife Resources Commission. “We work at different times, sometimes in the morning and sometimes at night.” The Coast Guard uses four boats in New Hanover and five boats in Brunswick. “We’re more into education than we are violations,” said First Class Boatswain’s Mate Ed Martin of the Coast Guard station in Wrightsville Beach.

SCOUTS FROM 3A

Other activities drew from Scouting’s heritage. “We went back to Cub Scout books from the ‘40s and ‘50s,” Roof said. Those books from the days before Nintendo, or even a TV in every home, were big on American Indian lore, outdoor games and toys made by hand. This weekend, kids (and the young-at-heart) got the chance to build or play with kites, whimmy-diddles, spool tractors, pinwheels and cupand-ball games. Nearby, at a big circle drawn in the dirt, many boys learned how to play marbles for the first time in their lives. The encampment was also an opportunity for Cub Scouts to take part in events they can’t do in their local units, Roof said. National regulations prohibit individual Cub Scout packs from holding shooting or archery events. Those can only be hosted at the district level at approved facilities, Roof said. So, the archery range and shooting range at Camp Barnhardt were buzzing all day as groups of boys and their leaders were taught the safe and proper ways to use bows and BB guns. “We wanted to have more

things than you could possibly do,” Roof said. Jeff Jones, leader of Pack 333 of St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church, said he and the other parents had a blast as well as the boys. It’s also a chance to build Boy Scouting’s future. Although Cub Scouting was founded in the United States in 1930, two decades after the Boy Scouts of America, the centennial year is a chance to get boys interested in the programs. “One of our goals is to prepare them for Boy Scouting” by getting them involved in outdoor events, Jones said. Roof pointed out that studies have shown kids who are active and play outdoors have less trouble with ADHD and obesity. “This is a great opportunity for them,” he said. Shane Lavigne, of Indian Trail, brought his sons Jacob, 7, and Ben, 5, to the encampment. Jacob belongs to Pack 387; Ben isn’t quite old enough to join, but got to wear a Tiger Cub T-shirt and take part in some of the events with his big brother. Shane said the program is a way to meet active and involved parents and kids and help his sons get good guidance. “I was a Scout,” Shane said, “and I want to keep them involved.” from stores along the way,” Barbitta said. “The adventure has just begun and we hope our fans are excited about the ride ahead.” Launched in 1917 by L.D.

HILLSBOROUGH (AP) — A man who has pleaded guilty to several federal charges related to the death of a University of North Carolina student body president returns to court to face state charges in the case. The Herald-Sun of Durham reported that Demario Atwater will be in court Monday afternoon in Hillsborough. He is charged with murder, armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges in connection with the death of Eve Carson of Athens, Ga., in 2008. She had been shot five times with a 12-gauge shotgun. Atwater pleaded guilty last month to several charges, including carjacking resulting in death and kidnapping. Atwater is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court Sept. 23. His agreement with prosecutors is for a life sentence. Laurence Lovette also faces state charges in the case.

Officials investigating a series of fires CHARLOTTE (AP) — North Carolina fire officials have charged a woman with arson in an apartment building fire that was one of at least seven blazes over the weekend. The Charlotte Fire Department said in a news release that 27-year-old Shayla Davis was charged with arson in connection with the fire Sunday that caused $250,000 in damage. No one was injured. Davis was being held in the Mecklenburg County jail. Jail records did not indicate whether she has an attorney. It was one of several fires in Charlotte this weekend that included one fatality. Officials have not released the name of the 58-year-old woman who died after being pulled from a burning two-story duplex early Saturday. Investigators say that fire appears to be accidental and caused $200,000 in damage.

BY LAURA GIOVANELLI

The Winston-Salem Journal

YADKINVILLE (AP) — Her husband gave her the hydrangea bush and the Japanese maple. Her mother-in-law gave the couple the weeping cherry when they moved in years ago. Peonies were started from bushes that came from her, too. For birthdays, they make pudding from persimmons that they harvested from a tree near the driveway. In Beth Hutchens’ family, plants have always meant something. They’re passed down like old silver and handmade quilts. “We have a high regard for plants,” Hutchens said. “These are the kind of things you can keep forever. You can remember.” Hutchens has a lot to remember. She is that Beth Hutchens, the widow of Sgt. Mickey Hutchens, the Winston-Salem police officer who was shot to death last October while responding to a domestic dispute at the Bojangles’ on Peters Creek Parkway. When Sgt. Howard Plouff, a Winston-Salem police officer, was shot killed on the job in 2007, Doug Owen built a small memorial garden for his family. When he heard about Mickey Hutchens’ death, he contacted Beth through the police department and made a similar offer. She called back a couple of weeks later, Owen said. “She showed me the things that Mickey had put into the ground and she said she’d like to incorporate these things.” “I find that doing volunteer work is the most rewarding work I do,” he said. “I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose a spouse in that violent way. If I can make a person’s life a little easier in their time of trouble, then that’s what I can do — and that’s how I can help. “If you take that all sorrow, anguish and pain, and you put in something tangible like flowers, it kind of masks the pain you’re going through.” Owen owns Majestic Gar-

dens, a Winston-Salem landscape-design business. He’s one of the organizers of Operation Christmas Tree, a service that gathers up unsold Christmas trees every year and gives them to families who can’t afford them. Owen convinced Tim Hanauer of Earth Graphics and Alan Koontz of Carolina Pondscapes, an aquatic landscaping business based in Thomasville, to help him. Owen estimates they’ve donated about $10,000 in materials and labor. The Hutchens built their modest one-story house 15 years ago when they moved from Clemmons. It’s back from old Highway 421, on rolling county land hugged by the yards of her extended family. Mickey’s mother and stepfather live within sight. So does Mickey’s aunt. Gradually, they added landscaping. They didn’t have money to do a lot — they had two daughters to get through college — but they liked being outside. “We were doing a little bit at a time. This would be so important to Mickey if he was here,” Hutchens said. Without her husband, Hutchens does some of the yard work Mickey used to. She mows their wide, long lawn, listening to books that she’s downloaded to her iPod. The yard may come out a little crooked, but it gets done. A few weeks ago, Owen and Koontz came by Hutchens’ house to start the garden. Koontz drove back and forth across the Hutchens’ front yard, pushing Tennessee mountain boulders into position over a hole dug deep into North Carolina Piedmont red clay. The garden’s focus is a water feature: Water bubbles over a carefully arranged pile of boulders, spreading down over pebbles and smaller rocks and filling the Hutchens’ quiet yard with a gentle gurgle. There are new perennials — day lilies, Russian sage, hellebore, a Camilla bush. Owen moved the hydrangea nearby and spread mulch to include the Japanese maple, too.

Small investors after market drop: I told you so

tle. “We like to go where there’s panic, because in the midst of the crisis you get the best opportunities.” If the past is any guide, individual investors might not join him anytime soon. Investors pulled $25 billion out of stock mutual funds after the market bottomed last year, according to the Investment Company Institute, a mutual fund industry trade group. Meanwhile, they stuffed bank accounts with cash and loaded up with

bonds. Last year saw $376 billion flow into bond funds. If there’s more turmoil in stocks, though, the individuals playing it safe may not escape completely unscathed. Money manager Richard Bernstein, a former Merrill Lynch strategist, notes that some of the bonds that individuals have loaded up on are junk bonds, dicey ones issued by companies with iffy prospects. If stocks fall, there’s a good chance junk will lose money, too.

“They got greedy,” says Bernstein of the little guys. Tobias Levkovich, chief U.S. equity strategist at Citigroup, thinks they’ll get greedy for stocks soon, too. He notes that some individual investors had finally started putting money back into stocks before the recent drop, and he thinks they won’t be able to resist if the market resumes its climb. “They tend to chase the market,” he says. “If it rallies, they’ll come back in.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sales of previously occupied homes likely rose 5.2 percent in April as government incentives provided temporary fuel to the housing market. Economists polled by Thomson Reuters forecast the National Association of Realtors will say sales rose to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.63 million, up from 5.35 million in March. The report is scheduled for 10 a.m. today. The federal government provided a big boost to home sales this spring by offering first-time buyers a tax credit of 10 percent of the purchase price, up to $8,000. There’s also a credit of 10 percent, up to a maximum of $6,500, for homeowners who want to upgrade. The deadline to get a signed sales contract and still qualify for either credit was April 30. Buyers have until the end of June to complete their sales. The tax credit’s impact is likely to show up in the home sales report for several months because it measures completed sales rather than sales contracts. But the fate of the housing market for the rest of the year is uncertain. Without the tax credit, mortgage applications to purchase homes fell to the lowest level in 13 years last week, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association.

days in something different than anything I’ve seen in 30 years,” he says. Bob Doll, chief investment officer at the money management firm BlackRock Inc., echoes that view. “I think a lot of people are selling now and asking questions later,” he says. Adds Daniel Alpert, managing partner of Westwood Capital LLC, “Now everybody is reconfiguring their portfolios, trying to get defensive.” Not surprisingly, some professional investors think the wholesale selling is overdone. David Marcus, CEO of Evermore Global Advisors in Summit, N.J., says he’s using the market drop to buy a lit-

might not stop it from defaulting. On Friday, the Dow closed at 10,193, up 1.3 percent for the day but down 9 percent from its late April peak. Some market observers say the fact that professional investors have been selling recently is less worrisome than their doing so indiscriminately. Bill Fleckenstein, a Seattle hedge fund manager, says that in big selloffs, it’s individual stocks or sectors that lead markets lower. But now everything seems to fall in unison, suggesting that investors are uneasy about owning any stocks. “What we’ve seen in recent

NEW YORK (AP) — Maybe the dumb money isn’t so dumb after all. Individual investors always seem to jump into stock rallies when they should be getting out. But after two crashes in 10 years, the little guy decided to stay on the sidelines this past year — and played the fool again. Stocks just kept going up and up. Well, at least until this month. The professionals who have been pushing shares higher for 14 months discovered during the past few weeks something Main Streeters caught on to a while ago: Stocks are dangerous. “They were always thinking stocks were going to go back down again,” Mark Luschini, chief market strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott, says of individual investors. “The scar from investment declines hasn’t gone away,” Though markets rallied Friday, most major stock indexes are down now about 10 percent from their late April peaks. Such reversals, called “corrections,” are common during a bull market, and many analysts believe this market was long due for one. Still, investors — professionals as well as individuals — are unnerved. One measure of market jitters is the VIX, a market indicator commonly referred to as the fear index, which tracks expectations of big swings in stocks. From late April, the index has nearly tripled to levels not seen in over a year. The change in market sentiment has come fast. Last month, the question on everyone’s lips was whether Corporate America would post earnings that showed the economy was indeed gaining strength. Then the numbers came in, and they were impressive. Instead of just slashing costs to generate profits, companies actually sold more, too. In other words, that great engine of the growth, the American shopper, was back. The recovery was assured. Then came fears early this month that Greece’s debt troubles could spread, perhaps slowing or even halting growth throughout the world. Stocks began to pull back. On May 6, there was the so-called “flash” crash, sending the Dow Jones industrial average down to a loss of nearly 1,000 points in less than 30 minutes. Last week served up more unsettling developments: a financial reform bill in Congress that could crimp bank profits, the sinking of the once surging euro and fears that a $1 trillion bailout of Greece

million compared to what Gov. Beverly Perdue actually will spend in the year ending June 30 because she delayed spending to have enough cash to pay the state’s bills. Members of both parties agree about next year’s budget gap — it will probably be $3 billion unless the economy roars back to life soon. They differ about just what they can do to prepare for it. Crawford said there’s very little the General Assembly can do beyond refusing to expand budget items that aren’t part of entitlement programs like Medicaid and protect public education. Berger said freezing spending at the current year’s levels would possibly save another $450 million. But Republicans presented only two amendments during last week’s Senate budget debate and haven’t rolled out a plan on how they would do things differently. “It’s a little bit disingenuous of them to say that we could spend at last year’s levels,” said Chris Fitzsimon, executive director of the liberal political watchdog group NC Policy Watch. “Would they rather lay off thousands of teachers to prepare for next year?” Democrats don’t feel the need to make rash decisions because the state retained the top credit rating of the three major bond-rating agencies — a sign of fiscal stability — which they attribute to prudent fiscal decisions in 2009. Still, they haven’t exactly been willing to make bold decisions that would put the state’s tax base on firmer footing in the years ahead. They’ve punted for a decade on overhauling the tax system, which would have probably narrowed the revenue shortfall by tapping into the growing service economy. They’ve also declined to reduce the scope of the state’s $10 billion Medicaid program by eliminating optional services other states don’t provide. Democrats appear willing to wait to until 2011 before deciding on difficult choices.

Daugherty now works every Thursday morning at The Warrior Golf Club. He arrives early and gets the golf carts ready, starts people off on the first hole and, later, acts as ranger, keeping groups moving when they get too slow. In exchange, the course allows him to golf for free. He has the same privileges at Corbin Hills, where he used to work. He has a knack for finding lost balls, as evidenced by the baskets and pans of balls sitting on a shelf in his garage. Daugherty plays golf efficiently, usually keeping his ball straight and in play. He easily shoots his age, playing alone or pairing up with buddies such as Donnie Allison and C.P. Fisher. He fudges on his score sometimes, Daugherty acknowledges. “I cheat a whole lot when I play by myself,” he says. “I kick the ball, I move it, or I count my best ball when I miss a lick.” Daugherty suffered a heart attack while golfing in Charlotte back in 1992, leading to triple-bypass surgery. Doctors added two stents in 1999. Otherwise, his health has been great, and he moves around the golf course and in and out of his Landis home like a youngster. “I’m living on borrowed time,” Daughtery laughs, “but I’m making the most of it.”

Daugherty finished Landis High School in 1941. He had required the constant attention of Principal T.F. Bostian. “He’d tear my butt up all the time, when I got into scrapes at school,” Daugherty says, “but he was great.” A group of his friends at Landis High were drafted, so Floyd volunteered for the Army, thinking they might all stay together. Instead, the Army scattered them across the country. The 19-year-old Daugherty went to basic training in St. Petersburg, Fla., gunnery school in Panama City, Fla., (where he talked frequently with actor Clark Gable) and armor school in Denver, Colo. Two more stops, and he was in Walla Walla, Wash., practicing with his B-17 crew. The 10-man crew flew a practice night mission between Walla Walla and Boise, Idaho. On their way back, they veered way off course, running out of gas in Calgary, Canada. Back at the base, they became known as the “Lost Canadians” and the “Canadian Kids.” It just seemed right to name their B-17 the “Canadian Club.” Thirty years after the war, Floyd and Margaret started making trips across the country, hooking up with members of his original crew. “Every time we’d get together, we’d drink Canadian Club,” Floyd says, “and that’s what I still drink.” The crew stayed together only through the first seven missions in Europe. After that,

Things I just don’t understand 1. You have to show your “papers” to attend a presidential state dinner, but the president criticizes Arizona for trying to do the same to keep illegal aliens out of Arizona. 2. Congress won’t pass an immigration law but say Arizona’s immigration law is unconstitutional. But they haven’t even read Arizona’s law, which mirrors the federal law, so how do they know? 3. I guess Congress finds it significantly worse to ask a person’s for identification in Arizona than it is to stop drugs, murderers, gangs and criminals from entering the U.S. 4. Why do we need thousands of immigrants coming here annually when we don’t have enough jobs for our own people? 5. Why are we trying to give billions of our dollars to bail out Greece, whose people have far greater government funded benefits than we do? They can retire at 52 with a nice pension. 6. Why does Congress keep spending money it doesn’t have despite the fact it runs our education system that teaches math. Let’s replace them with math teachers who can add and subtract. 7. Why is Congress going to bail out a labor union with our tax dollars to restore their pension fund? How many of you don’t have a pension fund but will be contributing to theirs? Is this the change you voted for? 8. And finally, why doesn’t government put our mentally and physically capable deadbeats receiving welfare, etc. to work doing the jobs illegal aliens are doing?

The darker side of Monsanto

Regarding Monsanto becoming a partner at the N.C. Research Campus: Monsanto has strategically pursued farmers across the country for the crime of having crops that have been cross-pollinated by Roundup pollen carried on the wind from other fields. Farmers have been sued for up to $3,052,800. An N.C. farmer settled for $1.5 million. The consequences of these practices not only devastate farmers; they are changing intellectual property laws, making it possible for people to be held libel for acts of God. It is well known in the agricultural community that farmers save seeds from their crops to be used in the next planting. It is through this practice that over years farmers refine and perfect the quality of their crop. A farmer’s seed can go back 20, 30 years. It is their legacy. But if their crops are pollinated by Roundup, their seed becomes subject to Roundup copyright laws and is in essence no longer theirs. This is especially devastating for organic farmers, who depend upon years of hard work and natural selection instead of genetic modifications and herbicides. The most damaging product being developed by Monsanto is a “terminator seed” that produces crops with seeds that are unable to grow. This way, farmers who buy Roundup seeds cannot save seeds for the next harvest and must repurchase. Why is this so dangerous? Pollen can travel hundreds of miles. There are measurable amounts of pollen in Antarctica. Fields across America could be cross pollinated by “Terminator” pollen and begin producing sterile harvests. I believe that there is a place for genetically modified crops, but in areas of the world where such extreme conditions exist that there is no other option. Sadly, instead of focusing on these more meritorious causes, Monsanto has chosen to pursue ways to tamper with our food supply in the name of preserving their copyrights. — Whitney Bost

First baseman is a first-rate fellow I am writing this letter because of my adoration of a young man who has become a hero/role model for my 7year-old son. His name is Kyle Bridges, and he’s the starting first baseman for Carson High School. I took my son, Samuel, to a game at Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium, and he mentioned that Mr. Bridges goes to his church. Kyle later saw Samuel at church and started taking an interest in him. As a matter of fact, Kyle brought three other players with him (including Jesse Park) to see Samuel play in China Grove. After the game, Kyle introduced Samuel to the other players and then gave him an official Carson hat and sweatshirt! You should have seen how excited Samuel was when he told me about this. Since then, we have gone to several Cougar baseball games, and each time, Kyle made Samuel feel special. He even dedicated his next hit to my son! My wife and I have been very touched by this special relationship between two ballplayers. As a junior in high school, Kyle could have easily brushed Samuel aside and gone about his business.

Thanks for making it a great festival Last Saturday’s second 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 reporter Shelley Smith 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. Special thanks to the NC Transportation Museum and the annual antique truck show. These parallel events, across the street from each other, generated synergy as a tourist event destination. That helped produce the unexpected high attendance at both events. Festival volunteers, led by Mr. B. Coley, repeatedly created solutions to unforeseen problems and kept all things running smoothly. Without their dedication and enthusiasm, the event could not have happened. Thank you, Cheerwine, for providing the drinks and syrup to make the Cheerwine truffles. Both are winners! Congratulations to the barbecue contest winners. “Two Men and a Grill” was the judges’ choice for “Best in

Rowan,” but “Team Smokey Lane” won the “People’s Choice Award.” The Barbecue Festival is an event to honor the heritage of barbecue and Cheerwine. It also promotes cultural tourism. It met those goals and will be back again in 2011. Thanks to all who attended. You made the 2010 Barbecue Festival a success and the festival committee is invigorated in planning and expanding for 2011. We vow to have ample barbecue cooked and even more barbecue cookies! Get a glimpse at: cwww. BBQFest2011.EventBrite.com. We welcome comments. — George Busby Busby is the barbecue festival coordinator for the Salisbury-Rowan Cultural Arts Committee.

Awesome response for fundraiser We would like to thank the members of the Millbridge Ruritan Club for hosting the fish fry fundraiser for Carson Lineberger. You guys are awesome! We’d also like to thank members of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, Thyatira and Back Creek Presbyterian Churches, and Tisha, Mary and Crystal from Rowan County Relay for Life for all they did to help, from making desserts to working. We appreciate each of you. We have been well blessed during Carson’s 16-year journey from being diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his mandible and his 42 reconstructive surgeries. We are hopeful that he will receive a permanent partial set of lower teeth sometime this summer. To all who came out and/or made donations we offer our heartfelt thanks. We are overwhelmed by your support to help Carson complete this journey. May God bless your lives as richly as you have blessed ours. — Family of Carson Lineberger China Grove

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be) “Trouble is only opportunity in work clothes.” — Henry Kaiser

his article is in response to recent complaints about students who don’t respect the nation’s flag or honor our Pledge of Allegiance. I have the privilege of being a volunteer with Communities in Schools, a national non-profit agency that helps students stay in school, be successful and prepare for life. I have lunch once a week with a special little girl who is a kindergarten student in Mrs. Lindsay Merritt’s class at Koontz Elementary. Instead of my usual Tuesday lunch date, I was invited to attend a breakfast on May 6 in honor of Mother’s Day. I arrived a little early hoping to help with the preparation. Right around 9 a.m., a voice came over the intercom requesting that Mrs. Merritt turn on the TV to channel 85. She spoke to one of her students, who promptly followed her instructions. I stopped what I was doing when all at once the children stood at attention at their desks, faced the flag, placed their hands over their hearts and began the Pledge of Allegiance. They weren’t merely speaking but practically shouting in unison with all the volume and enthusiasm their little spirits could muster. I joined in as Mrs. Merritt and Mrs. Linda James stood with their class and set the example. I’ll admit that I have been disillusioned with America lately, but at that moment, I could hardly contain the pride and hope that I felt. We’re talking about a class of 5- and 6-year-olds, different races, different cultures, learning and growing together in a loving and structured environment. While their moms were enjoying breakfast, they watched a video featuring each child telling why their mother was special to them; things like, “She plays with me,” “She eats ice cream with me,” “She makes me macaroni,” “She cleans my room.” Is there anything sweeter than the innocence of a child? Each mother received a copy of the DVD as a gift. I was overwhelmed as these children and their teachers honored America and their mothers. Then it dawned on me: WAIT A SUBMITTED PHOTO MINUTE!!! Communities in Schools volunteer This sounds Norma Shuping poses with Lethia, like the way a special friend at Koontz Elemen- things were — how is it tary. this generation puts it — “back in the day.” I can relate! Those were the days that helped to make “me.” I say, “Amen!!” My prayer for these children is that the Lord will continue to “guard their hearts and minds.” To all readers, I challenge you to become involved with the Communities in Schools programs. Please contact Doris Yost at 704-797-0210 or e-mail: cisvolunteer@aol.com. You may say, “I’m not a teacher.” Neither am I, but I reminded myself that “God doesn’t always call the qualified ... he qualifies those he calls.” All it takes it a little bit of time, love and a willing spirit. I chose the primary level, but help is welcomed in all age groups. I have been reminded of the value of respecting those in authority without arguing or being rebellious, how to stay on my square to form a straight line, how to walk with one hand by my side and the other hand’s index finger on my lips so as not to disturb other classes when I am in the hallway and how to keep my shirt tail tucked in at all times. I can promise that you will see more smiles, get more hugs, open more cantankerous milk cartons (some things never change) and tie more shoes than you thought possible in one short hour. The blessing you receive is well worth the effort. To any of you students who have forgotten or are out of practice honoring “Old Glory,” just pay a visit to Mrs. Merritt’s class. They’ll show you how it’s done. To Mrs. Merritt and Mrs. James and all the administration at Koontz Elementary, I admire and applaud you. What a great job you are doing! You give validity to the book, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.” To the children, I say “thank you” for sharing yourselves with me. I love you all.

As spill grows, oil soaks delicate marshes, birds, nests BARATARIA BAY, La. (AP) — As officials approached to survey the damage the Gulf oil spill caused in coastal marshes, some brown pelicans couldn’t fly away Sunday. All they could do was hobble. Several pelicans were coated in oil on Barataria Bay off Louisiana, their usually brown and white feathers now jet black. Pelican eggs were glazed with rust-colored gunk, and new hatchlings and nests were also coated with crude. It is unclear if the area can even be cleaned, or if the birds can be saved. It is also unknown how much of the Gulf Coast will end up looking the same way because of a well that has spewed untold millions of gallons of oil since an offshore rig exploded more than a month ago. “As we talk, a total of more than 65 miles of our shoreline now has been oiled,” said Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who announced new efforts to keep the spill from spreading. A mile-long tube operating for about a week has siphoned off more than half a million gallons in the past week, but it began sucking up oil at a slower rate over the weekend. Even at its best the effort did not capture all the oil leaking, and the next attempt to stanch the flow won’t be put into action until at least Tuesday. With oil pushing at least 12 miles into Louisiana’s marshes and two major pelican rookeries now coated in crude, Jindal said the state

has begun work on chain of berms, reinforced with containment booms, that would skirt the state’s coastline. Jindal, who visited one of the affected nesting grounds Sunday, said the berms would close the door on oil still pouring from a miledeep gusher about 50 miles out in the Gulf. The berms would be made with sandbags and sand hauled in; the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers also is considering a broader plan that would use dredging to build sand berms across more of the barrier islands. At least 6 million gallons of crude have spewed into the Gulf, though some scientists have said they believe the spill already surpasses the 11 million-gallon 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill off Alaska as the worst in U.S. history. Obama administration officials continued defending their response while criticizing that of BP PLC, which leased the rig and is responsible for the cleanup. U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said he is “not completely” confident that BP knows what it’s doing. “If we find they’re not doing what they’re supposed to be doing, we’ll push them out

Oil is seen on the tip of the bill of an oil-soaked pelican on an island in Barataria Bay just off the the coast of Louisiana. The island, which is home to hundreds of brown pelican nests as well at terns, gulls and roseate spoonbills, is impacted by oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. ASSOCIATED PRESS

of the way appropriately,” Salazar said. But federal officials have acknowledged that BP has expertise that they lack in stopping the deep-water leak. In Barataria Bay, orange oil had made its way a good 6 inches onto the shore, coating grasses and the nests of brown pelicans in mangrove trees. Just six months ago, the birds had been removed from the federal endangered species list. The pelicans struggled to

clean the crude from their bodies, splashing in the water and preening themselves. One stood at the edge of the island with its wings lifted slightly, its head drooping — so encrusted in oil it couldn’t fly. Wildlife officials tried to rescue oil-soaked pelicans Sunday, but they suspended their efforts after spooking the birds. They weren’t sure whether they would try again. U.S. Fish and Wildlife spokeswoman Stacy Shelton said it is sometimes better to leave

the animals alone than to disturb their colony. Pelicans are especially vulnerable to oil. Not only could they eat tainted fish and feed it to their young, but they could die of hypothermia or drowning if they’re soaked in oil. Globs of oil have soaked through containment booms set up in the area. Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser said BP needed to send more booms. He said it would be up to federal wildlife authorities to decide whether to try to clean the oil that has already washed ashore. “The question is, will it do more damage because this island is covered with the mess?” Nungesser said. Officials have considered some drastic solutions for cleaning the oil — like burning or flooding the marshes — but they may have to sit back and let nature take care of it. Plants and pelican eggs could wind up trampled to death by well-meaning humans. If the marshes are too dry, setting them ablaze could burn plants to the roots and obliterate the wetlands. Flooding might help by floating out the oil, but it also could wash away the natural barriers to flooding from hurricanes and other disasters — much like hurricanes Katrina and Rita washed away marshlands in 2005. State and federal officials spent millions rebuilding the muchneeded buffer against tropical storms. The spill’s impact now stretches across 150 miles,

from Dauphin Island, Ala. to Grand Isle, La. On Sunday, oil reached an 1,150-acre oyster ground leased by Belle Chasse, La., fisherman Dave Cvitanovich. He said cleanup crews were stringing lines of absorbent boom along the surrounding marshes, but that still left large clumps of rust-colored oil floating over his oyster beds. Mature oysters might eventually filter out the crude and become fit for sale, but this year’s crop of spate, or young oysters, will perish. The only thing that has kept leaking oil out of the Gulf so far is the mile-long tube siphoning oil from the well to a ship. BP spokesman John Curry told The Associated Press on Sunday that it siphoned some 57,120 gallons of oil within the past 24 hours, a sharp drop from the 92,400 gallons of oil a day that the device was sucking up on Friday. The amount BP has collected in the mile-long tube has varied since it was installed last week. The device was siphoning 42,000 gallons of oil a day early that week, but at times Thursday, the siphon was collecting oil at a rate of as much as 210,000 gallons a day. BP refused to provide dayby-day figures on how much oil the tube was diverting. Curry said the rate is expected to vary widely, in part because it is not just oil but also natural gas that is leaking. On Sunday, for instance, the siphon collected more than 7 million cubic feet of gas.

U.S.-born Yemeni cleric calls for the killing of American civilians CAIRO (AP) — A U.S.-born cleric who has encouraged Muslims to kill American soldiers called for the killing of U.S. civilians in his first video released by a Yemeni offshoot of al-Qaida, providing the most overt link yet between the radical preacher and the terror group. Dressed in a white Yemeni robe, turban and with a traditional jambiyah dagger tucked into his waistband, Anwar Al-Awlaki used the 45minute video posted Sunday to justify civilian deaths — and encourage them — by accusing the United States of intentionally killing a million Muslim civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. American civilians are to blame, he said, because “the American people, in general, are taking part in this and they elected this administration and they are financing the war.” “Those who might be killed in a plane are merely a drop of water in a sea,” he said in the video in response to a question about Muslim groups that disapproved of the airliner plot because it targeted civilians. Al-Awlaki, who was born in New Mexico and is believed to be hiding in his parents’ native Yemen, has used his personal website to encourage Muslims around the world to kill U.S. troops in Iraq.

More than 7 million of these cribs have been recalled in the past five years, often because screws, safety pegs or plastic tracking for the rail can come loose or break. The industry insists that babies are safe in drop-sides that haven’t been recalled. “We believe firmly that when these products are assembled and used properly, they are the safest place to put your child,” said Mike Dwyer, executive director of the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, which represents over 90 percent of the crib industry. But when the hardware

Krishnan and just seven others survived. “I’ve been thinking, ’Why me? Why me?’ And I can only think that God wanted to give me a second life,” he said from his hospital bed in Mangalore. Investigators and aviation officials combed through the wreckage of the Boeing 737800 strewn across a hillside to try to determine the cause of India’s worst air disaster in more than a decade. They recovered the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder, which they hope will give them important clues, the Press Trust of India news agency reported. A four-member U.S. forensic team also arrived in India to help in the investigation, said Harpreet Singh, an Air India spokeswoman. By Sunday evening, 146 of the 158 bodies had been identified and were being handed to grieving relatives for burial, said Arvind Jadhav, Air India’s chairman and managing director.

dicts nothing about the fall. “It is a significant win. It is the birthplace of the president of the United States,” Republican Chairman Michael Steele said a few hours after Djou sealed his victory over Democrats Colleen Hanabusa and Ed Case. The two drew 59 percent of the vote between them in the winner-take-all contest. But Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., chairman of the Democratic campaign committee, said the result was “a clear case of local Democrats not being able to work out a solution where you could get one (Democratic) candidate against one (Republican candidate).” He said that would change by November. Djou became the first Republican in nearly 20 years to win a congressional seat from his state, and he seemed to recognize that his political future was anything but secure. “The people of Hawaii have give us a short-term lease with an option to buy in November,” he said. “This is not the time for us to rest on our laurels. This is the time to redouble our efforts to bring out change. To do good, to restore our nation to prosperity.”

malfunctions, the drop-side rail can detach partially from the crib. That creates a dangerous “V”-like gap between the mattress and side rail where a baby can get caught and suffocate or strangle. Dwyer says manufacturers have seen cases where parents installed the dropside improperly, sometimes upside down, or they have reassembled a crib for a second or third child with some of the screws or other hardware missing. In addition to the CPSC’s pledge to vote on a ban by year’s end, two New York counties — Nassau and Suffolk, on Long Island — have banned the sale of drop-sides. Late last year, crib manufacturers were already moving in that direction when they voted to eliminate the drop-side design and instead opt for four fixed sides, but the standard is a voluntary one.

Despite the industry’s move to end production, there are plenty of new and used drop-side cribs for sale online. The Associated Press found drop-sides for purchase on websites for Sears, Kmart and Amazon.com. Craigslist also had scores of used drop-side cribs for sale. The industry doesn’t have figures on how many dropsides might still be on the market, but Dwyer says it’s a small percentage. A ban — by Congress or the CPSC — won’t come soon enough for Bobby Cirigliano’s parents or his sister, Jennifer, who was 3-years-old when her brother died. She remembers him every day, her parents say. When the family moved to their new house on Long Island, her dad promised to build her a tree house. “I want it as high as the sky,” she told her dad, “because then I can see my little brother.”

The tabloid News of the World posted video on its website that appears to show Ferguson discussing payment terms. She is heard to say “500,000 pounds when you can, to me, open doors.”

Abdel Rahman El-Aydi, head of the archaeological mission that made the discovery, said some of the tombs are decorated with religious texts that ancient Egyptians believed would help the deceased to cross through the underworld. El-Aydi said one of the oldest tombs is almost completely intact, with all of its funerary equipment and a wooden sarcophagus containing a mummy wrapped in linen. In 31 tombs dating to around 2030-1840 B.C, archeologists discovered scenes of different ancient Egyptian

U.S. official: Still at odds with China over N. Korea, Iran BEIJING (AP) — The United States and China are still at odds about how to deal with North Korea over the sinking of a South Korean warship it has been blamed for, a senior U.S. official said Sunday. They also remain apart on the specifics on new U.N. sanctions to impose on Iran over its suspect nuclear program, the official said. On the eve of two days of high-level, U.S.-China talks, the official said China is not yet convinced that North Korea was responsible for the sinking of the South Korean vessel despite an international report that found it responsible. The official also said the two sides have not yet agreed on the details of penalties to impose on Iran. The official spoke to reporters on condition of anonymity to describe discussions held at a private dinner hosted by a top Chinese official for U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton ahead of the talks.

The differences outlined by the official underscore the difficulties the Obama administration faces in trying to improve cooperation with China, particularly on international security issues. Both issues will be the subject of intense consultations over the course of the next two days, the official said. The U.S. official said that during the dinner the American side raised with the Chinese the seriousness with which the United States and its allies South Korea and Japan take the March ship sinking, which the report blamed on a torpedo fired by a North Korean submarine. The Americans also told the Chinese that it was important for Washington and Beijing to work closely on the matter, which the U.S. and South Korea say is a serious breach of the armistice that ended the Korean War, the official said.

CAIRO (AP) — Archeologists have unearthed 57 ancient Egyptian tombs, most of which hold an ornately painted wooden sarcophagus with a mummy inside, Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities said Sunday. The oldest tombs date back to around 2750 B.C. during the period of Egypt’s first and second dynasties, the council said in a statement. Twelve of the tombs belong the 18th dynasty which ruled Egypt during the second millennium B.C. The discovery throws new light on Egypt’s ancient religions, the council said. Egypt’s archaeology chief, Zahi Hawass, said the mummies dating to the 18th dynasty are covered in linen decorated with religious texts from the Book of the Dead and scenes featuring ancient

Emotional day for NASCAR BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press

CHARLOTTE — Brian France spent years formulating plans to build the NASCAR Hall of Fame and holding its first induction ceremony. It still didn’t prepare the NASCAR chairman for the overflow of emotions on Sunday. Seeing his father and grandfather included in the first class hit close to home. This was about family — and a sport that had grown up. “It was an emotional day. I didn’t anticipate that,” said France, the third generation of NASCAR’s original and only

ruling family. “I do a lot of things that are within the sport and they’re all great. This was different today. It was a big celebration I didn’t expect.” They waited until the end to induct the late Dale Earnhardt, the working man’s driver who received the customary “Wooooo” with three fingers raised from a fan in the crowd. PETTY Junior Johnson said it “couldn’t have been a better day,” a significant statement from a driver and owner who has been referred to as the

“last American hero.” Richard Petty wore his customary cowboy hat with feathers, and the King was properly honored for his staggering 200 victories. But this was about NASCAR as a whole, too. A sport that for years struggled with the stigma of being a regional sport reached another milestone. And the France family was behind it. Bill France Sr, who organized bootleggers like Johnson in North Carolina and the beach racing folks in Florida to create NASCAR, was the first Hall of Fame inductee. ASSOCIATED PRESS

Wonder’s strong arm, has Catawba excited

MOCKSVILLE — A sweaty South 1 Sunday Mocksville 0 e n d e d with a South 8 doubleeader Randolph 6 hsweep by South Rowan’s Legion team and a weird double play. The DP went F8U (U for unassisted) — an entry we won’t see in a scorebook again anytime soon. Trailing 8-6 in its final atbat, Randolph County had a runner at second with one out. Daniel Massey ripped a low liner that is a base hit 95 percent of the time, but charging South center fielder Blake Houston snagged the ball right off the grass at Mando Field to give Alex Ingold a save. “It stayed low, but I had a good jump,” Houston said. Baserunner Scott Hayes, certain the ball would fall, had rounded third, so Houston jogged to the infield and hopped on second to complete the twin killing. “I saw that the runner was almost home,” Houston said with a grin. “So why risk a throw?” If you’re thinking, things are going South’s way in the early going, you’re right. South (3-0) got a tiebreaking, two-run homer from Maverick Miles to rally against Randolph. In the opener of a round robin in Mocksville, South got amazing pitching from Preston Penninger and turned three double plays to beat Mocksville 1-0. It was scheduled for seven, but it lasted eight. Julio Zubillaga’s homer won it. Somehow “Zubie” whacked a neck-high p i t c h thrown by frequent adversary D.J. Webb ( W e s t Rowan) over the PENNINGER left-field fence. “It was a high curve that was breaking, but it looked good to me and I hit it solid,” Zubillaga said. “But the biggest thing was still our defense and Preston.” Mocksville ripped the ball early, but Penninger’s teammates made plays behind him. Then he settled in and traded zeroes with Davie’s Ryan Carter. “Lots of changeups — kept them off-balance and out front,” Penninger said. Zubillaga and shortstop Gunnar Hogan worked some magic up the middle for the first DP. The other two South DPs

Mayor Susan Kluttz throws out the first pitch as North Hills dedicates its new baseball field.

Suns fight back

Mayor shows off her arm at North Hills Notes ‘n’ quotes ... orth Hills dedicated its new baseball field recently and it wanted someone prominent to throw out the first pitch. How ’bout the mayor? Susan Kluttz has had experience with athletics. She has thrown out first pitches for the minor-league team Piedmont Boll Weevils, and now the Kannapolis Intimidators. She has flipped the coin at the Mayor’s Cup football game between Catawba and Livingstone. Kluttz seemed a little RONNIE nervous when she took the GALLAGHER mound. “Nobody told me until about 10 minutes ago,” she said, “or I would’ve practiced.” Kluttz said before she threw out the pitch at a minor-league game years ago, she enlisted the help of little-league coaches Bud Mickle and Bryce Beard. “It’s been a long time since I’ve done it,” Kluttz smiled. “I’m from the old school where girls throw underhanded.” Kluttz was fretting for nothing.

As did North Hills. • With the rabid interest of Rowan County’s public schools, we sometimes forget about North Hills, but it’s athletic program is on the rise. The school, which has around 300 students from kindergarten through 12th grade, now has 21 sports teams. Two of the teams, middle school basketball, and elementary volleyball, went undefeated this year. A soccer field is being completed. “The kids are really into sports here,” said athletics director Brian Cook, a Northwest Cabarrus graduate. “It’s real easy to get them to participate.” Maybe the kids work hard to succeed because they see how hard the coaches work. When the subject of a new baseball field came up, Cook and head coach Chris Price looked for fencing. They found it in Georgia, but when they arrived, the fence was still up.

PHOENIX — Amare Stoudemire answered his critics Suns 118 with an Lakers 109 exclamation point, and there will be no sweep in the Western Conference finals. Stoudemire matched his career playoff high with 42 points, 29 in the second half, and grabbed 11 rebounds to power the Phoenix Suns to a 118-109 victory Sunday night that cut the Los Angeles Lakers’ lead in the series to 2-1. “Just being aggressive, really going after it,” Stoudemire said. “Tonight I wanted to come out with some aggressiveness and get it going.” The Suns can pull even with a victory at home in Game 4 on Tuesday night. Phoenix, dominated inside in the first two games, won with its big men, and a big advantage at the free throw line. Robin Lopez, whose 7foot presence gave the Suns some much-needed toughness inside, scored 20 on 8of-10 shooting in 31 minutes,

Phoenix’s Amare Stoudemire battles L.A.’s Pau Gasol. by far his most playing time since returning from a back injury at the start of the series. Phoenix made 37-of-42 free throws, 14 of 18 by Stoudemire. The Lakers were 16 of 20 at the line. Kobe Bryant had 36 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds. Pau Gasol scored 23 points, but the Lakers didn’t get as much help from their supporting cast as they did in the first two games.

SALISBURY POST

Rowan edges Burlington From staff reports Rowan County took advantage of six errors and beat Burlington-Graham 6-5 in American Legion baseball on Sunday. Due to bus issues, Rowan didn’t arrive in Graham until the scheduled starting time of 7 p.m. The teams agreed to play a seven-inning game. Rowan (1-1) trailed 5-3 going to the seventh, but a twoout error opened the door for a non-division victory by the short-handed visitors. All six runs that Rowan scored were unearned. Zack Simpson, Forrest Buchanan, winner Cody Laws, and Alex Litaker, who picked up the save, ventured to the mound for Rowan. Rowan is home tonight against Kernersville and on Tuesday against Eastern Randolph.  South Rowan is home tonight against Kannapolis.  Mocksville beat Randolph 9-8 in a crazy one on Sunday night to cap a tripleheader at Rich Park. It was scheduled for seven innings but lasted nine. Mocksville led 7-0, fell behind 8-7, then pulled it out in the ninth when Tyler Jordan doubled and scored on a bloop single. Mocksville plans to make

up a game at Stanly tonight.  Mooresville fell to Kernersville 8-3 on Sunday in a non-division game. Billy Nantz led the Moors with three hits. Aaron Meadows, Hunter Nanney and Chris Dula rapped doubles.

 Junior Legion Carson’s Junior Legion team opened with a sweep of Stanly County. Carson won 91 in a conference game and 63 in a game that won’t affect the standings. Ethan Free pitched six scoreless innings, fanned seven and scattered six hits in the opener. Devan Peacock had two hits and three RBIs. Patrick Hampton went 2-for3. Hampton, Josh Martin, Mitch Galloway and Greg Tonnesen knocked in runs.  In the nightcap, Caleb Trexler pitched three scoreless innings and fanned three. Blake Cauble completed the win. Scottie Hinson knocked in two runs. Carson is at Mocksville on Tuesday.

 Minor leagues Bobby Parnell (East Rowan) had a solid outing on Sunday and helped Buffalo beat Lehigh Valley 6-5. Parnell pitched the seventh

and eighth. He allowed one run and fanned five.  Jerry Sands (Catawba) doubled on Sunday, his 28th extra-base hit in 43 games for Great Lakes. Sands would win the Midwest League Triple Crown if the season ended today. He’s batting .378 with 14 homers and 34 RBIs.

 College baseball Pitt Community College beat Potomac State 9-1 on Saturday to earn the school’s first trip to the National Junior College World Series in Grand Junction, Colo. Trey Holmes (East Rowan) went 3-for-5 with two doubles and scored three runs. Zach Smith (East) scored a run for Pitt. Pitt opens up this Saturday night against Southern Nevada and catcher Bryce Harper, the likely No. 1 pick in the MLB draft next month.

 Intimidators fall The Kannapolis Intimidators let one get away on Sunday, losing to Asheville 13-11 after squandering an 11-4 lead. Ian Gac hit two homers for the Intimidators. Daniel Wagner (South Rowan) scored twice and knocked in a pair. The Intimidators are in Savannah tonight.

Day wins; Spieth steals show Associated Press Golf roundup ... IRVING, Texas — Jason Day nearly dropped out of the Byron Nelson Championship before it began. He wound up winning the tournament — even though most folks likely will remember Jordan Spieth as the big winner. Day fought through a rocky final round for a 2-over 72, but it was good enough to give the 22-year-old Australian the first win of his PGA Tour career. Still, the 2010 Nelson will go down for the remarkable Tour debut by Spieth, a 16-year-old junior at a local high school. Spieth was within three shots of the lead on the final nine holes, but dropped back into a tie for 16th. He shot a 2over 72 in the final round, his highest score of the tourna-

ment. His 4-under 276 was six strokes behind Day. Blake Adams, a 34-year-old PGA Tour rookie, shot a 72 to tie for second with Brian Gay, who shot a 63, followed by Jeff Overton (71). LPGA Tour GLADSTONE, N.J. — Sun Young Yoo won the Sybase Match Play Championship for her first LPGA Tour victory, beating Angela Stanford 3 and 1 at Hamilton Farm. Yoo, the 23-year-old South Korean player in her fifth LPGA Tour season, won the 13th and 14th holes with pars and took a 2-up lead with a 15foot putt for her first birdie of the match on the par-3 16th. The match ended when Stanford missed her birdie putt and conceded Yoo’s birdie. Yoo’s victory was the eighth straight by a foreign player and the 25th in the last

26 events. European Tour WENTWORTH, England — Simon Khan of England won the BMW PGA Championship by a stroke, shooting a 5-under 66 to come from seven strokes back and capture a tournament he played in only after receiving a late invitation. Nationwide Tour RALEIGH — Journeyman golfer John Riegger was declared the winner of the Nationwide Tour’s Rex Hospital Classic with a 54-hole total of 20-under 193 when the tournament was called due to rain. The 46-year-old never started the final round, which was delayed at the start by 3 hours due to heavy morning rains. The tournament was suspended at 1:45 p.m. as more storms rolled into the area, and nearly 2 inches of rain fell in less than 24 hours.

TUTTLE FROM 1B

Ryan Bostian, who will be one of Tuttle’s teammates at Catawba, knocked Tuttle’s first pitch out of the park. But Tuttle was still on the mound in the eighth, still firing, and Kannapolis won 5-3. Catawba took its first serious look at Tuttle this spring when he shut out Cox Mill and fanned eight. But they also wanted to see him against a stronger lineup. That’s when they watched him hold Mount Pleasant to five hits and one run. That was the clincher. Tuttle says he wanted to go to a smaller school and that Catawba was his first choice all along, but UNC Charlotte also scouted that Mount Pleasant game. The D-I 49ers showed flattering interest in Tuttle after that, enough interest to cause Gantt a sleepless night or two. But Gantt can rest easy now. “I’m real happy for John J. because Jim Gantt wins about 40 a year and contends for championships every year,” A.L. Brown coach Empsy Thompson said. “John’s taken his share of bumps and bruises for us, but now he’ll be on the flip side. He’s going to get to experience playing on great teams with great players.” Tuttle’s strong arm is partly hereditary (his father was an A.L. Brown quarterback in the 1970s), partly the result of a childhood spent flinging railroad-track rocks and baseballs. “I used to throw at Grandma’s house all day long,” Tuttle said. “I just kind of continued on from there. I was playing Dixie Youth when I was 8, and I was always a pitcher.”

MIKE LONDON/SALISBURY POST

Father John Tuttle and mother Cindy flank John J. Tuttle as he signs with Catawba. AD Ron Massey, uncle Slate Tuttle and Wonders coach Empsy Thompson are in the back. Elbow surgery posed a temporary setback, as he was entering high school. Thompson wanted to let Tuttle spend his freshman year with the jayvees, but he didn’t have that luxury. Tuttle wasn’t needed to pitch, but he was called up to the varsity to play third base. “We had a big void at third base and John filled it as a freshman,” Thompson said. “Then, from his sophomore year on, we’ve depended on him heavily to pitch, and he’s been great for us.” Hitting a May Day grand slam against Concord was the highlight of Tuttle’s sophomore year. The pitching breakout for Tuttle came in Legion ball six weeks later. The Kannapolis Legion team was drained of experienced hurlers after a stretch of five games in six days, so Tuttle was handed the ball. He went the distance, shut out rival Concord Post 51 and struck out eight. Since that night, he’s been a frontline pitcher. He posted 14 Ks against Concord last summer and looked sharp in the 2009 Area III All-Star Game at Asheboro’s

McCrary Park. While he’s a standout pitcher, Tuttle is also a good fielder and hitter. He’s probably not a college shortstop, but he’s capable of playing second base, third base or first base for the Indians. Besides competing for pitching innings next season, he’ll get a chance to show what he can do with his bat. He batted over .300 this season with three homers, 19 RBIs and 10 steals and drew lot of walks. “We’ll have to see what happens, but he does have a chance to be a two-way guy for us,” Gantt said. “We’re excited about him, and we appreciate Coach Thompson putting in a good word for us. We consider Empsy a friend of our program.” Tuttle’s looking forward to being in the home dugout at Newman Park. The Kannapolis Legion fell to Rowan 12-2 last summer with Tuttle playing shortstop. “I’ve played in Legion games at Newman Park, and that’s a really great field and a great atmosphere,” Tuttle said. “It’s just nice to have a good school that’s 20 minutes from the house.”

CHICAGO — Dustin Byfuglien has emerged as a force for Blackhawks 4 the Chicago Sharks 2 Blackhawks and now he is taking his game to the highest level. He and his teammates are headed to the Stanley Cup finals. Byfuglien scored his third go-ahead goal of the Western Conference finals, converting on a third-period power play as Chicago rallied to beat the San Jose Sharks 4-2 on Sunday and complete a four-game sweep that sent the Blackhawks to the NHL finals for the first time since 1992. The 257-pound Byfuglien was parked in front of the net with 7 seconds left on the power play. “Seems like he likes the

The Blackhawks celebrate a goal and a sweep. spotlight. He likes being the hero. He steps up in big time,” teammate Patrick Sharp said. “He told me before the third period he was going to be the guy to go get it. True to his word, he got it.” Chicago will play either Montreal or Philadelphia and be in search of its first NHL title since 1961, more than two decades before many of the current players were born. “It’s an honor to be going to the Stanley Cup. We beat a very good team over there. It wasn’t easy,” Byfuglien said.

The Suns, the secondbest 3-point shooting team in NBA history in the regular season, were just 5 of 20. But Jason Richardson was 4 of 7, including one with 26 seconds to go to put the lid on the triumph, snapping the Lakers’ eightgame playoff winning streak. “We certainly didn’t come out to play the way I wanted,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said, “and we certainly didn’t play the way I wanted at the end.” Richardson scored 19. Steve Nash had 17 points and 15 assists. Stoudemire, who had just nine rebounds in the first two games and had been criticized for his lack of defense and absence of fire, scored repeatedly on drives to the basket, when he either made the basket, was fouled, or both. The All-Star power forward, who can opt out of the final year of his contract after this season, made 10-of-12 shots in the second half, scoring 16 in the third

I came out tonight with a chip on my shoulder and it was a must win for us.” Phoenix coach Alvin Gentry said he knew Stoudemire would respond. “He knew he didn’t play well in L.A.,” Gentry said. As for Lopez, Gentry called the second-year pro’s offense “a big surprise.” Lopez had been out since March 28 with a bulging disk before playing in this series. The Suns played a lot of zone defense after the Lakers averaged 126 points and shot 58 percent in the first two games. Los Angeles shot 48 percent in this one. The Lakers had a 27-4 advantage in secondchance points, but were outscored 18-3 on fastbreak points. “When they started making shots, we had to go to the zone,” Gentry said. “Tonight it worked.”

Penninger started a 1-2-3 in the third on a comebacker by former West Rowan slugger Hernan Bautista. “Jammed him with an inside fastball,” Penninger said. “And he hit right back to me.” Mocksville had the bases full again against South reliever Matt Miller in the eighth, but third baseman Cory Deason started a slick 5-2-3 twin killing to end the game. Jesse Park threw three shutout innings in the nightcap, but Randolph got fourthinning homers from Cody Trogdon and Zach Frye to grab a 4-1 lead. “We just needed to make

Houston’s two-run double cut into the deficit. After, Zubillaga tied it 4-4 with a sac fly, Miles drove a low curve over the fence in center for the lead. He used an 8-iron. It wasn’t a bad pitch, but Miles is Miles, and he went down and got it. “I’d been struggling a little bit, and there’s been a little pressure wondering about the draft and all,” Miles said. “I’m just trying to stay focused and help us win. We’ve had some luck, but, hey, we’re 3-0.”

He was followed by his son, Bill Jr., a ruthless but effective manager who helped expand the sport past its Southern roots. “I always remember how people looked at us and, quite honestly, made fun of us,” said former driver and TV analyst Darrell Waltrip, who helped induct Johnson. “That we were a regional sport with a bunch of rednecks that JOHNSON wore ballcaps and uniforms with patches all over them. “When I look at what Bill France Sr. and Jr. and Brian and Lesa (France Kennedy) and everybody have done with this sport, to take it from that to where it is today, it makes me very

until retiring in 2003. Hendrick had many examples. “You have that little blank, blank, blank Jeff Gordon down here in my office in the morning at 9,” Hendrick recalled him saying after they won a race at Indianapolis and knocked sponsor drinks off the roof. “If you can’t make it and he can’t make it, don’t you even think about carrying your car to Watkins Glen, you’re done.” But before Bill Jr. hung up, he had one other message. “But it doesn’t affect our fishing trip.” The crowd burst into laughter on a day that included a few tears, too. “I know our entire family is obviously very proud of our father and our grandfather,” Brian France said. “But this was today very much about three other great champions and the whole sport getting proper recognition for what’s happened over the last six decades.”

proud.” In a ballroom adjacent to the $195 million Hall of Fame that opened two weeks ago, the France family shared in a celebration. “The one thing that really touched me most is the statue of my father,” France Kennedy said of the sculpture of Bill Jr. in the hall. “It’s personal, but him on the director’s chair, just like he’d always be outside of that NASCAR hauler, the likeness of it is amazing.” Memories were overflowing as John Cassidy, NASCAR’s first legal counsel, gave Bill France Sr.’s induction speech to open the ceremony. “I prefer to call him a dreamer who was a man of action, someone who turns dreams into reality,” he said. After Jim France collected his father’s induction ring and donated it back to the Hall of Fame, car owner Rick Hendrick gave the induction speech for Bill Jr., who took over for his father in 1972 and ruled with absolute authority

“We had to manually get it down,” Price said. They hauled it here and put it up. Over the summer they’ll redo the entire infield and outfield. The backstop will be finished and dugouts are going to be added. “I can’t wait until next year,” Price said. The mayor appreciates the effort because she appreciates sports. “It’s essential for kids to get involved in sports,” said Kluttz, who once started an aerobics class because her daughter didn’t have a place to go. “Right now, the city is working on youth initiatives for gang prevention,” Kluttz said, adding that when ways of keeping youths out of gangs are discussed, sports and recreation are always a topic of conversation. The excitement on the North Hills campus for the new baseball field brought a smile to her face. “I’m really thrilled for this school,” Kluttz said. • In the public-school world, Rowan County has opened some eyes on the state scene this year. With three individual state champions in the 3A track meet Saturday, this sports-crazed area now has six individual and two team

state titles in that sport alone. Salisbury won the team title in tennis, West in football, Salisbury in girls basketball, North’s girls in track and Salisbury’s boys in track. Salisbury���s Hannah Lebowitz (tennis) and Roy Dixon (golf) were also individual state champs. • As far as the best girls soccer team in the county? No problem picking that one. West Rowan played nine games against county opponents. The Falcons finished 9-0 with eight shutouts. They outscored those nine foes 63-1. • But it’s East Rowan that’s on everyone’s mind right now. On Tuesday, it will be East Rowan and more East Rowan: • Mike Waddell’s softball team — with a record of 22-1 — plays at home against Marvin Ridge in the third round of the 3A playoffs at 5 p.m. • Brian Hightower’s baseball team — with a record of 26-2 — is playing at home against Northwest Cabarrus in the N.C. West’s Final Four at 7 p.m. Mustang Mania is alive and well. Will East continue Rowan County’s state championship run? Stay tuned. • What happened to Scotty Robinson? The last time we mentioned the former Salisbury star and East Carolina defensive end, he was going to Cleveland for a tryout with the Browns.

Didn’t work out, according to his agent, Brian Anderson. “We got a few calls before the draft,” Anderson wrote in an e-mail. “We felt he would at least get a free-agent deal but it did not happen. He is on some priority lists with some NFL clubs.” Anderson said the next step for Robinson is trying out for the Canadian Football League or the United Football League. • Anderson said Jamelle Cuthbertson is getting a chance. The former Catawba running back has been invited to a three-day workout with the Canadian Football League’s Montreal Alouettes. The Alouettes won the 2009 Grey Cup. Cuthbertson finished his Catawba career with several school records. • You probably won’t have to travel far for the North Piedmont Conference basketball tournament next year. Word out of Carson, is that the league wants that school to play host to the event for a second straight year. • Joe Pinyan has proven he’s a winner on the football field. On the baseball field, he he’s also one of the best as well. Pinyan, a long-time umpire, has been selected to umpire one of the state title series. Pinyan said he was unsure which one he’ll be a part of. • Contact Ronnie Gallagher at 704-797-4287 or rgallagher@salisburypost.com.

Span the Man is injured MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Twins centerfielder Denard Span left the game Sunday against the Milwaukee Brewers in the sixth inning with a bruised right shoulder. Span was injured when he was hit by a pitch from Marco Estrada in the third inning. He remained in the game, getting a single in the fourth and playing defense in the sixth inning before Alexi Casilla pinch hit for him in the bottom of the inning. When Span goes down, the Twins have a tough time replacing him. They do not have another natural centerfielder on the roster.  ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Chicago Cubs struggling third baseman Aramis Ramirez is getting some extra time to recover from recurring soreness in his left thumb. Ramirez was out of the lineup Sunday for the third time in four days, and the Cubs have a day off today.

Wakefield (1-2) also earned his 190th career victory as the Red Sox took two of three from the Phillies.

Doumit’s homer in 10th dooms Atlanta PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ryan Doumit homered with two outs in the 10th inoff Pirates 3 ning Braves 2 Takashi Saito for his third hit, helping the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Atlanta Braves 32 on Sunday and avoid a threegame sweep. Doumit’s first career gameending homer was his fourth of the season and ended Atlanta’s five-game winning streak and Pittsburgh’s three-game losing streak. The Pirates averaged

only two runs while dropping seven of their previous eight at home. Saito (0-2) retired the first two batters in the 10th before Doumit drove a waist-high pitch into the right field seats, only the sixth homer by Pittsburgh in its last 21 home games. Octavio Dotel (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the victory, stranding two runners by striking out Martin Prado, who went 0 for 5 while twice grounding into double plays. The Braves had won 10 of 12

overall and their last 10 against NL Central teams. Pirates starter Zach Duke followed a 2-1 victory Tuesday over Philadelphia and Roy Halladay by allowing only an unearned run over seven innings, giving up seven hits but striking out five and walking none. Duke didn’t figure in the decision after pinch-hitter Eric Hinske tied it at 2 by homering in the eighth against Evan Meek, Hinske’s fourth homer and second in as many games. The Braves’ lone run off

Duke came after shortstop Ronny Cedeno drew an error by throwing wildly on Yunel Escobar’s grounder in the second, and Melky Cabrera and David Ross followed with singles. Braves right fielder Jason Heyward didn’t start because of a sore left thumb after originally being in the starting lineup, but walked as a pinch-hitter in the 10th and stayed in the game defensively. Heyward had four hits in the first two games of the series, including a home run and double.

You could be particularly fortunate in establishing a couple of new friendships in the year ahead that will turn out to be more meaningful to you than usual. They will be with individuals whose closeness will last a lifetime. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Your friendly behavior can sow an abundance of seeds for a future harvest of goodwill, so try to be as amicable as possible. Thoughtfulness and tact will take you a long way. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — There is a good chance that you could be particularly lucky in attaining something that might be of small worth to others but will be of substantial value to you. You’ll make the most of it. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Our minds can be extremely powerful, and you could prove it if you think you’re lucky and truly believe it. Regardless of the conditions you’re facing, maintain a positive attitude. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — This could be one of those days when conditions in general should be quite favorable for you. It might be a good time to address those matters that pertain to your finances or career. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — There should be no need to delegate important, critical assignments to others at this time, because as chance would have it, you’re the one who is the most capable of pulling off something big. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Think in expansive terms, because it looks like something in which you’ll be involved with another could produce far bigger dividends than anybody thought possible. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You’re apt to be far more fortunate than usual when it comes to a new endeavor or enterprise in which you’re involved with a friend or two. Go for broke. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t waste your valuable time on insignificant matters. Your ambitions and desires are likely to mesh extremely well together in ways that would make success imminent. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — The last thing you should do is put limitations on your imagination or creativity. All the signs are signaling that you will do particularly well in matters involving these traits. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Look for the possibility of personal gain coming to you from other than your usual channels. An especially good break could come about through someone who you helped previously. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Once you show a willingness to roll up your sleeves and go to work, others will be as cooperative as they can be to help you achieve your aims. Much can be accomplished working together. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Now that you have discovered an arrangement about which you were feeling unsure is working out just fine, you can move on it with full force. Study it from various angles and you’ll see how. UNITED FEATURE SYNDICATE, INC.

Readers provide more help for schizophrenia

Make declarer work for his contract BY PHILLIP ALDER

United Feature Syndicate

To be told that you are a difficult opponent is one of the highest compliments you can be paid. A few players are good at making their opponents work for every trick. This week we will look at some deals in which the defenders should make life as tough as possible for declarer. In this one, South is in six clubs. West understandably leads the heart king. How should the play go? When South opened three clubs, showing a seven-card suit and 6-10 high-card points, North, unaccustomed as he was to 13-card fits, checked to see that he and his partner had the same colored backs to their cards. When he saw that they were identical, he took a stab at six clubs. South won the first trick with dummy’s heart ace and cashed the three diamonds, discarding his heart loser on the last of them. Then declarer crossed to his hand with a trump and led a spade toward the dummy. Now was West’s big moment. He had to play a low spade with no hesitation, in the hope that South would misguess, calling for dummy’s jack. It could not be right to win with the spade ace and cash the heart queen. If that were the winning defense, declarer would have begun with 1-3-2-7 distribution and would have thrown his spade loser on the third diamond, not a heart. He

Monday, May 24

would then have conceded one heart trick and ruffed his third heart on the board to make the slam. Agreed, it is not easy to think of all of this in the heat of battle, but it is a reliable general principle that when declarer leads toward a king-jack holding, second hand plays low.

‘Shrek Forever After’ tops box office LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Shrek Forever After” roared its way to the top of the box office, making $71.3 million in its opening weekend. But the fourth film in the monster franchise from DreamWorks Animation had the weakest debut of all “Shrek” sequels, according to studio estimates Sunday. “Shrek 2,” from 2004, opened with $108 million. “Shrek the Third,” from 2007, made $121.6 million in its first weekend. And the latest installment was available for the first time in 3-D and IMAX 3-D, where ticket prices are higher — up to $19 in Manhattan. “Shrek” made just under $5 million on IMAX screens.

Dear Dr. Gott: I read your column about the family with a daughter/sister with schizophrenia. I agree with the advice that you provided the family: Seek psychiatric DR. PETER help for the daughter/sisGOTT ter. I would also like to add a suggestion: Let the family and all your other readers know about NAMI National. This is a grassroots organization with a mission to educate, support and advocate for families and consumers. It has more than 200,000 members worldwide. There are NAMI affiliates in all 50 states. For more information, the website is www.nami.org.

ganization in the country.” It has a national organization and state organizations in each of the 50 United States plus Puerto Rico and Washington D.C., as well as more than 1,200 local affiliates across the country. Based on the sheer size of this organization, its claim at being the most formidable is rightly so. People who suffer from mental illness were often shunned, labeled as “crazy” and “put away” from public view. Thanks to further study and medical understanding of these illnesses, sufferers now often have several treatment options and do not require institutionalization, in most cases. The public’s view of these disorders has taken several steps in the right direction; however, there is still a stigma attached to mental illness. Many people fail to realize that Dear Dr. Gott: Regarding these disorders are not the your excellent column result of something the about schizophrenia, I sufferer did, in the same hope you will also make way that rheumatoid your readers aware of the arthritis, fibromyalgia, National Alliance for the celiac disease and a host of Mentally Ill, a family-supother diseases and disorport group offering educa- ders are not. tion, understanding and Thank you for writing to hope.

about shingles. I would like to give you a “recipe” my mother-in-law gave me. I know it worked for her, my father-in-law, my husband and me. Simply take this combination three times per day: one 400 IU vitamin E, two 100-milligram B-complex and four 1,000-milligram slow-release vitamin C tablets. When the shingles symptoms are gone, stop the vitamin E and B-complex and taper off the vitamin C slowly. If you have diarrhea symptoms, eat cheese. Dear Reader: I have not heard of this and have no idea why it would work. You failed to mention how long before symptoms typically start to disappear when using this “remedy.” I would also like to mention that the tolerable upper limit for those over 19 for vitamin C is 2,000 milligrams, and for vitamin E,

it is 1,500 IU. While vitamin C has a relatively low toxicity, vitamin E may cause hemorrhaging and interrupt blood coagulation when taken above recommended daily doses. I suggest everyone interested in trying this remedy do so only under physician monitoring. Dr. Peter H.
