Pierce named teacher of year Overton Elementary curriculum coach earns top honor BY SARAH CAMPBELL

SALISBURY — Theresa Pierce borrowed a famous line from baseball legend Lou Gehrig to describe how being named the Rowan-Salisbury Teacher of the Year made her feel Friday. The curriculum coach from Overton

Elementary said she felt like Gehrig, who called himself the “luckiest man on the face of the earth.” Pierce received star treatment when she arrived back at Overton after the announcement. The entire student body cheered as she stepped out of her car onto a makeshift red carpet. “This is great because the kids are the reason I do what I do,” Pierce said. “I believe that the teacher is the single most important ingredient in education because if you have a good teacher you are inspired, you are encouraged and you want to excel.”

Overton Principal Betty Tunks said there couldn’t be a more deserving person. “She is wonderful,” Tunks said. “Her love of children comes across in everything she does.” Tunks said Pierce brings learning to life for her students by doing everything from portraying characters from history or having them act out different phases of the water cycle. “She’s very hands-on and engaging,” she said. sarah campbell/sALIsBURY POsT Jeanie Moore, vice president of conCurriculum coach Theresa Pierce arrives at Overton Elementinuing education at Rowan-Cabarrus

SALISBURY — The Salisbury Police Department has placed its evidence and property custodian on paid administrative leave as authorities investigate “cash accounting irregularities” in the evidence control room, Police Chief Rory Collins said Friday. Jeffrey Emerson is a civilian employee of the department, Collins said in a press release. He has been employed with the department since 1997 and served in various civilian roles prior to his appointment as evidence custodian in 2006. Collins said after “the discovery of a potential problem” in the evidence control room, he and Rowan County District Attorney Brandy Cook asked the State Bureau of Investigation to perform a review. That review will include an investigation of irregularities and an audit of the department’s evidence and property control room, the press release said.


Deputy fired; officials don’t say why BY SHELLEY SMITH AND S COTT J ENKINS

SALISBURY — Rowan County Sheriff Kevin Auten has fired a deputy who was a member of the department’s Special Response Team. But neither Auten nor the county’s attorney will say why the deputy was fired. The county argues that state law requiring such disclosure does not apply to “at will” employees including deputies. That’s despite an opinion issued by N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper’s office in November that the law, which took effect Oct. 1, does apply to those employees. Meanwhile, the N.C. Sheriff’s Association is backing legislation in the N.C. General Assembly that would exempt sheriff’s departments from releasing such information. At the request of the Post, the Sheriff’s Office released a memo Friday that had been given to the deputy, John Roach, upon his firing. Dated May 19 and initialed by Auten, the memo said: “As of today Thursday, May 19, 2011,

Theresa Pierce dances with students as the drum line plays Friday.

“While this situation has the potential to create a negative reflection upon the department, it is important for us to be transparent about this matter and to let our community know that we are taking this very seriously,” Collins said in the press release. “One of the key elements in the success of the Salisbury Police Department and our ability to gain and maintain the trust of our community is that we consistently operate at an exceptionally high level of integrity, regardless of the circumstances.” Collins noted Emerson has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the probe, but that “should not be construed as wrong-doing or as an indication of criminal activity on


his part. Administrative leave is simply a tool that is used to facilitate a full and thorough investigation into this matter.” Collins declined Friday evening to discuss the amount of money involved in the investigation or when the department first noticed the accounting irregularities, saying he would await the outcome of the investigation. A phone number listed for Jeffery Emerson was not in service.

“best of the best.” “This is one of my most favorite events of the entire year because it is an opportunity to recognize each of our teachers and thank them for what they do for our students each and every day,” she said. “There is something very important that makes a difference between a good teacher and a great teacher, and that something comes to a child from the heart of a teacher.” Through a recorded message, Julie Stolze, the school system’s 2009-10 Teacher of the Year, told the teachers to consider their sphere of influence. “I’d like to ask you to consider your legacy as a model teacher at your school,” she said. • • • Pierce, certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, will move on to compete for regional Teacher of the Year. She holds a bachelor’s degree in education from East Carolina University and a master’s in education from Catawba College.

Community College and a member of the Teacher of the Year selection committee, said when Pierce walked into the room for her interview Moore could tell she was a “born teacher.” “Her passion and enthusiasm are so clear,” she said. “It was amazing to see the love she exudes and how excited she is to go to work every day.” • • • Pierce said she was shocked to learn she had beaten out 34 of her colleagues for the title of Teacher of the Year. “I just couldn’t believe it,” she said. She said she was rooting for West Rowan High band teacher Daniel Trivette, who she has known since he was a child. “I think Daniel deserves this award because he’s just a great guy, making a difference in the lives of children every day,” Pierce said. After winning the award Friday, she said she was ready to get back to Overton to teach. “There is work to be done,” Pierce said. Pierce called working with children the “greatest privilege in the world,” and shared an experience she had just last week. Before administering the end-of-grade test last week she asked children to imagine themselves in a happy place. “The children went around the room and named places like the Great Wolf Lodge or Carowinds or the mall and this one little boy named Elijah said ‘here,’ ” she said. “I was so thrilled that Overton Elementary was his happy place. “For so many children it is because they get fed, they get loved and they get their needs met.” Tunks said Pierce greets students every morning as they come through the front doors. “She knows every child in the school,” Tunks said. “She starts their day off smiling and with hugs,” she said. • • • The Teacher of the Year from each of the district’s 35 schools was honored Friday during a breakfast at the Holiday Inn.

CLIPPED BY THE SPIRIT OF GIVING Lots of nervous looks as hair cut for Locks of Love at school


SATURDAY May 28, 2011

EDC official and his wife to sing Pops at Post duet BY JOANIE MORRIS


For the Salisbury Post

ALISBURY — Locks of Love will soon gain 90 inches of lovely locks thanks to the big hearts of eight students and one teacher from Sacred Heart Catholic School. They donated their hair as part of the school’s end of the year pep rally Friday afternoon. Third-grader Hannah Smith said she was giving and receiving after donating her blonde, curly hair. “I wanted to help all the little kids and I wanted to have a cute summer haircut,” she said. Second-grader Carolina Clark said she knows people need the hair, and doesn’t mind shearing her own for another’s happiness. “I want to give all the little kids a chance to have hair,” she said. “I know that people need it everywhere and it’s going to go to a good cause.” Fifth-grade teacher Tracy Sentilles also decided to donate. This year made the seventh year in a row Sacred Heart has donated hair to Locks of Love as part of its end of the year celebration. Kindergartner Megan Meyers said she was really excited about getting her hair cut. “I want people to have hair and not be bald so people won’t make fun of them,” she said. Until Friday afternoon, kindergartner Lillian Rattz had never cut her hair, only her bangs. “I’ve grown it all my life,” she said. And the reason she was cut-

Robert Van Geons has a secret. The economic development director has been harboring this secret for years. He sings. He sings loud and he sings proud. Not too many people realize that Van Geons is a performer at heart. In the past 10 years, they’ve only seen the “all business” side of Van Geons – who brings jobs and opportunity to Rowan TARA, ROBERT VAN GEONS County. Van Geons will reintroduce Rowan County residents to his resounding tenor at the Pops at the Post next Saturday, when he performs a duet with his wife, Tara. “It’s been awhile since I’ve been onstage,” admits Van Geons. Before he became the head of Rowan Works, before he started out in the business world, he was making joyful noise in the theater department at Catawba College, and onstage at Piedmont Players performances. “As a young man when looking at colleges, one thing that I had was equal dreams,” says Van Geons. “One was a life in

experiences of servicemen and women, especially Rowan County natives and current residents. Photographs and oral histories collected at the library will culminate in a photography exhibit at Waterworks in August. The library invites community members to participate by sharing memories and photographs from their service in Vietnam. Participants can share

their stories with a library staff member who will also collect photographs chronicling the veterans’ experiences while serving in Vietnam. Veterans’ stories will be archived as oral histories and kept at the Edith M. Clark History Room of Rowan Public Library. The library will copy veterans’ photographs and archive

them in the library’s collection. There are also plans to share this information with the national Veterans Memorial Project. The exhibit at Waterworks will run from Aug. 20 through Nov. 19, with a public opening reception on Friday, Aug. 26 from 6-8 p.m. For more information contact Paul Birkhead at Rowan Public Library at 704-216-7841.

CONCORD — A Concord man pleaded guilty to production and distribution of child pornography and was sentenced Thursday to 210 months in prison, to be followed by 25 years of supervised release. Rodger Vance Hanson, 45, was sentenced by Senior United States District Judge N. Carlton Tilley Jr., and Hanson’s residence and computer equipment were also forfeited to the government, U.S. Attorney Ripley Rand of the Middle District of North Carolina said. Investigators searched Hanson’s home on Jan. 13, 2010, after detecting child pornography being shared online from Hanson’s IP address. Investigators found hundreds of images and videos of child pornography, including photographs taken by Hanson of a minor engaged in sex acts. Investigators for the case were from the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office and the


Ride of Pride: Truck honoring veterans hits the highways CLEVELAND — Employees at the Freightliner plant again this year volunteered to create a one-of-a-kind Ride of Pride truck to honor veterans. They used a Cascadia model with a Detroit Diesel DD15 engine to create an eye-popping, super-sized symbol of the company’s respect for those who have served their country. The customized truck left Daimler Trucks North America’s Freightliner Truck manufacturing plant in Cleveland on Friday and was escorted to Washington, D.C., by hundreds of motorcyclists as part of an annual Memorial Day ceremony. Before the weekend trip to join Rolling Thunder, a national motorcyclist group that honors veterans, the truck toured North Carolina, making stops to pay tribute in several communities. Schneider National, based in Green Bay, Wisc., bought the truck, which will

be added to the company’s nationwide fleet of more than 10,000 trucks. “It’s very gratifying to have our organization selected to commandeer the Ride of Pride truck for a third time in its history,” Schneider National Vice President Mike Hinz said. The 2011 truck joins the 2007 and 2008 trucks, which have become rolling tributes to the U.S. military. They convey how both Daimler and Schneider feel about those who make the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country’s freedoms, Hinz said. “We are indeed honored to have these trucks in our fleet and we pledge to showcase them — both at events and on our nation’s highways — to make our great service men and women proud,” he said.” This year’s Ride of Pride artwork is designed to show support for active duty personnel, retirees and families who have lost someone in service to the coun-

try, as well as for prisoners of war and those still missing in action. This is the ninth year Freightliner plant employees have helped coordinate the truck design, local outreach and a 400-mile ride from the plant to the U.S. Capitol. Ed Keeter, formerly a shift manager at Freightliner’s Cleveland truck manufacturing plant and a veteran of the Vietnam War, proposed the project in 2001 when he and other employees were looking for a way to honor veterans as Memorial Day approached. “It is exciting to be affiliated with a company that is so dedicated to its employees, the community, and vets past and present,” Keeter said. Initially the idea was to decorate a Freightliner truck and drive it to the local veterans’ hospital for a visit.

That’s one of the things that attracted me to Catawba.” Van Geons, originally from Connecticut, even met his wife on the stage. She about knocked him over — literally and figuratively. The two met at a talent review as teens. “We went back to that original stage and I proposed there,” Van Geons said. He says that people he knew at Catawba and earlier are just as surprised to hear what he does now as people who know him only through his job in the business world are to hear what he used to do. “Economic development doesn’t allow for that other side,” he says. “It has gotten out a little bit in professional circles. I have gotten dragged into karaoke,” he admits. “It’s really interesting when old friends and new friends cross here in Rowan County.

‘Miracle on the Hudson’ plane heads to NC CHARLOTTE (AP) — Nearly 2 years after a US Airways jet made a miraculous landing on the Hudson River, passengers and crew members will reunite in the North Carolina city where the aircraft was bound on that January day. The damaged Airbus A320 jet piloted by Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger III has spent the last two years in a hangar just outside Newark, N.J. at Supor and Sons, a company that specializes in largescale salvage. On June 6, the plane will begin its 650-mile journey to the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte, where it will go on permanent display. Charlotte was the destination of US Airways Flight 1549 until a flock of geese disabled the engines. Sullenberger glided it to a safe landing on the Hudson outside New York City and all 155 passengers and crew members survived. It will take about five days for the plane to reach the museum, director Shawn Dorsh said. On June 11, crew members and passengers will view the plane in a private showing. That night, the museum will

hold a fundraiser for the exhibit, where Sullenberger, recently named an aviation and safety expert for CBS News, will be the guest speaker. “Having everyone here is real exciting,” Dorsh said. “People in the community are stepping forward to help. They recognized the importance of the artifacts.” The museum has been raising money for the exhibit. Officials say they have collected enough to transport the plane to Charlotte, where Arizona-based US Airways also has a hub, and exhibit the aircraft in the museum. Dorsh said a “full blown exhibit” would cost $2.4 million, adding: “That’s something we would work toward over time. Our fundraising is ongoing. But we’re going to have a tremendous exhibit for far less.” Much of the design for the exhibit has been worked out. “It’s going to be displayed as if came out of the water,” Dorsh said. “If there’s a dent in the airplane that happened in the water, it’s going to stay on the airplane. If it’s a dent that happened in the storage yard, we’re going to fix it. We

want it to look like it did when it came out of the water — frozen in that moment in time.” He said he’s excited the public will be able to see the exhibit unfold. The museum will be open while mechanics work on the display. Right now, museum officials are planning the logistics for the trip. Planners are trying to find the right route. For example, they can’t use the New Jersey Turnpike because the aircraft can’t fit through the tollbooths. For Mike Berkwits, this will be the first time seeing the plane since he escaped from it with his wife on Jan. 15, 2009. There have been passenger reunions. But this is the first one with the passengers, Sullenberger and the plane. “It’s a confused feeling,” the Charlotte business owner said about the viewing. “In some ways it’s surreal. In some ways, my head says, ‘It’s just a damn plane.’ And then in other ways I say, ‘This is a plane that has a special personal connection.’ But then your head says, ‘How can you have a connection to a plane?’”

the guitar and singing along to my little girl more than anything the past couple of years.” Lola will see her mom and dad perform for the first time together on Saturday as they perform “You’re Just in Love,” an Irving Berlin song. “It’s rather clever,” says Salisbury Symphony Maestro David Hagy, who first approached Van Geons about doing the duet a few weeks ago. “It’s one of Irving Berlin’s counterpoint songs; one person sings one whole verse that you think is the song, and another person sings something that sounds very different that’s on the same subject and finally they both work together.” Hagy first worked with Van Geons when he was a student at Catawba. “He was (singing) long before he did anything he’s been written about in the paper now,” adds Hagy. Hagy tries to incorporate as much community as possible into the Pops concert, featuring singers from Salisbury and Rowan County. “I really want to showcase the county’s talent with this concert.” The song is absolutely Robert and Tara’s personality, Hagy says. “I wanted not only a duet that fit their voices but also a duet that fit their actual personalities rather than trying

to cast them into something. I thought this would be best to do that.” Salisbury Mayor Susan Kluttz was surprised when she learned Van Geons sings. “I am not sure I knew he could sing,” says Kluttz. “I knew his wife had performed with Piedmont Players. I really have known him solely as the economic development director.” Kluttz adds that Van Geons has done an excellent job in his role with Rowan Works, so she has no doubts he’ll do a great job on Saturday as well. “I think it’s a wonderful idea to bring people who are important to the community and make them a part of this,” says Kluttz. “It really makes it a community-oriented event.”

SALISBURY — Rowan County’s unemployment rate declined slightly in April, according to figures released Friday by the N.C. Employment Security Commission. April’s jobless rate was 10.8 percent, down from 10.9 percent in March. Compared to the same time a year ago, the difference is more significant. Rowan’s unemployment rate in April 2010 was 13.1 percent. Cabarrus County’s employment picture fared better in April with a 9.4 percent jobless rate, down from 9.8 percent in March, the state agency reported. Across the state, unemployment rates declined in 73 counties in April, increased in 10 counties and remained flat in 17. The jobless rate has dropped below 10 percent in nearly half the state’s counties, including 36 counties where the rate is less than the statewide 9.5 percent, according to the Employment Security Commission. Currituck County had the state’s lowest unemployment rate in April at 5.6 percent. Scotland County had the highest, at 15.8 percent. The rates in other counties around Rowan were: • Davidson, 10.6 percent in April, down from 10.9 percent in March; • Davie, 9.4 percent, down from 9.7 percent; • Iredell, 10.4 percent, down from 10.7 percent; • Stanly, 10.4 percent, down from 10.7 percent.

Potential state budget deal spares teaching assistants would be no additional taxes, he said. The proposal, however, would have to clear several hurdles for it to become law. The Senate, which like the House is now controlled by Republicans, would have to go along. Both Senate and House GOP leaders have discussed the Senate amending its proposed budget next week with the agreed-upon changes to save time with negotiations and then sending the measure to Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue. Sen. Richard Stevens, cochairman of the Senate’s budget committee, wouldn’t comment directly on Brubaker’s compromise. But he called talk of an agreement premature. “It’s not finished,” he said. “The dialogue’s continuing.” Perdue said this week she would veto any final bill that fails to protect all of public education. Brubaker said he believes Republicans are trying to fulfill her request. “If we progress in this manner, I don’t see how she can veto it,” Brubaker said. But the Perdue administration highlighted more concerns with the Republican plans, particularly the Senate measure. In a news conference at the state’s emergency operations center, three Cabinetlevel secretaries argued that GOP-backed cuts would diminish public safety, the environment and the state’s economy.

Crime Control and Public Safety Secretary Reuben Young argued that budget cuts would make state law-enforcement and emergencymanagement officials less ready to respond to manmade and natural disasters, such as last month’s deadly tornadoes in the eastern two-thirds of the state. The proposed Republican budgets would eliminate dozens of trooper positions and cut funding for the National Guard and Division of Emergency Management. “It leaves, I believe, our most vulnerable population at risk,” Young said. “With these proposed budget cuts, the public is less safe than it is right now.” Perdue spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson said the governor isn’t changing her mind about what legislators must do to produce a budget she’d be willing to sign. “This isn’t moving the line,” she said. “This is filling in parts of the story that haven’t been told because there’s a lot of bad things that will happen if this budget passes.” The key players in this debate are likely to be five House Democrats who voted with Republicans for the chamber’s budget in early May. A final budget could withstand a veto override if four of the five support it. One of the five, Rep. Jim Crawford, D-Granville, said Friday that none of the five have a pledged to vote for a final measure that contains the

extra education funding, but he said it does make the legislation more appealing. “We felt like it was important to get those jobs back in the budget and to look after our school system,” Crawford said. “I don’t know if any of us are on board. We’ll wait and look at the old budget and see where they took it from.” Later Friday, Perdue released a letter to Senate leader Phil Berger and House Speaker Thom Tillis offering other objections to the House and Senate budgets. Her objections include: • 20 percent cuts in the More at Four preschool and Smart Start childhood program. • The elimination of the Health and Wellness Trust fund, which receives 25 percent of the state’s share of the national tobacco settlement. • Medicaid reductions that will lead to $2 billion in total funding losses for the program and resulting job losses in the medical provider field. Perdue urged them to keep intact a portion of a temporary penny sales tax set to expire at the end of June or find another revenue source to prevent cuts. Republicans are resolute in letting the tax expire on time. “I stand ready to work with you to do whatever is possible to craft a final budget I can support,” Perdue wrote. The governor and state lawmakers still have time to work out a deal on the twoyear budget. The fiscal year begins July 1.

Blackbeard’s anchor recovered off NC coast MOREHEAD CITY (AP) — Archaeologists recovered the first anchor from what’s believed to be the wreck of the pirate Blackbeard’s flagship off the North Carolina coast Friday, a move that might change plans about how to save the rest of the almost 300-year-old artifacts from the central part of the ship. Divers had planned to recover the second-largest artifact on what’s believed to be the Queen Anne’s Revenge but discovered it was too well-attached to other items in the ballast pile, said project director Mark Wilde-Ramsing. Instead they pulled up another anchor that is the third-largest artifact and likely was the typical anchor for the ship. Apparently, pirates had everyday anchors and special anchors just most people have everyday dishes and good china. “That’s a big ship to be putting that out to stop it,” WildeRamsing said admiringly as a pulley system of straps and men holding ropes moved the anchor from a boat to the back of truck. It’s the first large anchor that divers have retrieved; they earlier brought up a small, grapnel anchor. The anchor is 11 feet, 4 inches long with arms that are 7 feet, 7 inches across. It was covered with concretion — a mixture of shells, sand and other debris attracted by the leaching wrought iron — and a few sea squirts. Its weight was estimated at 2,500 to 3,000 pounds. The anchor’s size is typical for a ship the size of the Queen Anne’s Revenge, while the two other anchors probably were used in emergencies, such as storms, Wilde-Ramsing said. Archaeologists had planned to remove the secondlargest anchor, which is 13 feet long with arms that are 8 feet across, from the top of the

MOUNT PLEASANT — Mrs. Mildred Holshouser Barrier, 88, of Mount Pleasant died Thursday, May 26, 2011, at Carolinas Medical Center-Northeast in Concord. Mrs. Barrier was born Oct. 28, 1922, in Rowan County, daughter of the late Roy Holshouser and Sadie Kluttz Holshouser. She was a member of Bethel (Bear Creek) United Church of Christ. She enjoyed gardening, quilting, sewing and was a great cook. She was preceded in death by her husband, John Hubert Barrier. She is survived by son Hubert “Buddy” Barrier and wife Rhonda of Mount Pleasant; daughter Brenda Jandebeur and husband Ron of Charlotte; grandchildren Angie and Laurie Barrier, Kim Taylor and husband Tripp and Kris Jandebeur; and two great-grandchildren. Service and Visitation: Funeral service will be 2 p.m. Sunday at Bethel (Bear Creek) United Church of Christ officiated by Rev. Bobby Bonds and Pastor Terri Barringer. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. The family will receive friends following the service. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, memorials should be directed to Bethel (Bear Creek) United Church of Christ, 18937 Bear Creek Church Road, Mount Pleasant, NC 28124. Gordon Funeral Home in Mount Pleasant is assisting the family.

But it was too well-attached, so instead the divers went in from the side to retrieve the everyday anchor. That means that future dives may involve going in from the side of the shipwreck rather than the top, he said. Divers will work four days next week, when they’ll decide how to proceed. State officials hope the anchor and other artifacts will attract tourists. The largest exhibit of artifacts from the shipwreck, which was discovered in 1996, will be shown starting June 11 at the N.C. Maritime Museum in Beaufort. Wilde-Ramsing has said the team hopes to recover all the artifacts by the end of 2013. And the timing of the recovery of the anchor couldn’t be better for North Carolina officials, trying to increase tourism interest in the ship-

wreck. The Disney film “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” starring Johnny Depp was released earlier this month and features both Blackbeard and the Queen Anne’s Revenge. The only remaining parts of the ship — the wooden hull structure, ribs and a plank — are at the bottom of the pile, protected by ballast that kept the ship upright. Six cannon and three other anchors are also in the pile. Wendy Welsh, field conservator and QAR lab manager, and archaeologist Chris Southerly dived in the Atlantic to hook up the anchor for its lift to the ocean surface. “It lifted great,” said Welsh, who has worked with the project for nine years. “I didn’t think I’d see this day so soon.” Southerly compared the retrieval to the child’s game of

Pick-Up-Sticks, where players toss plastic sticks on a hard surface and then remove them one at a time without disturbing the ones underneath. “It’s really satisfying that I’ve had privilege of seeing it,” he said. In 1717, Blackbeard captured a French slave ship and renamed it Queen Anne’s Revenge. Blackbeard, whose real name was widely believed to be Edward Teach or Thatch, settled in Bath and received a governor’s pardon. Volunteers with the Royal Navy killed him in Ocracoke Inlet in November 1718, five months after the ship thought to be Queen Anne’s Revenge sank. The Queen Anne’s Revenge shipwreck site, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites, has already yielded more than 250,000 artifacts.

Former NC priest admitted Delaware sexual abuse DOVER, Del.

Details regarding the admission by the former Rev. James O’Neill were outlined in a ruling by Superior Court Judge M. Jane Brady that was obtained by the Associated Press. The ruling, dated

SALISBURY — Frances Rollins McElveen, 89, of Salisbury, passed away Thursday, May 26, 2011, at Lutheran Home at Trinity Oaks. Born Dec. 5, 1921, in Union County, she was the daughter of the late Frances Craig Rollins and Reuben A. Rollins. A graduate of Cannon High School in Kannapolis, Class of 1939, Mrs. McElveen was a homemaker. A member of Coburn Memorial United Methodist Church, she was in the Homemaker Sunday School Class, served as Circle chairman for United Methodist Women; chairman of Kitchen Committee; and was involved in other related church affairs. She was also a member of American Legion Harold B. Jarrett 342 and Women's Auxiliary. Preceding her in death were her husband, Thomas L. McElveen, Sr., who died Jan. 27, 2000; and son Philip M. McElveen, who died in 2007. She was the last survivor of eight siblings. Survivors include son Thomas “Tommy” L. McElveen, Jr. (Patty) of Roanoke, Va.; daughters Fonda M.

March 31, was briefly posted on the public court docket Thursday before being removed. O’Neill was a member of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales and former principal of Salesianum School in Wilmington, Del., where he was accused of molesting Eric Eden over several years beginning in 1976. O’Neill, 71, was relieved of his duties as pastor of St. Paul the Apostle church in Greensboro, N.C., in 2002. In a 2004 lawsuit against church officials, Eden claimed that O’Neill molested him hun-

dreds of times over a 9-year period, beginning when he was 8 years old, at his family’s home, in O’Neill’s rectory bedroom and school office, and elsewhere. The Associated Press does not normally identify victims of sexual abuse, but Eden, 43, filed his lawsuit under his own name and has spoken publicly about the case, which resulted in settlements with the Oblates, Salesianum and the Diocese of Wilmington. Brady’s ruling came in a dispute between the Oblates and its insurance company, which claimed that it was not

obligated to cover the Oblates in the Eden case because Eden did not suffer a “bodily injury” during the policy period. The Oblates countered that Eden did indeed suffer bodily injury at the hands of O’Neill. In accusing the insurance company of wrongfully denying coverage, the Oblates argued that the insurance policy was in effect in 1985, when O’Neill admitted to another priest that, while drunk and visiting Eden’s home, he tried to put his hand underneath the boy’s shirt in an attempt at sexual gratification.

RALEIGH (AP) — A potential House-Senate deal for a North Carolina state budget would preserve funding for teaching assistant positions for early grades in public schools, the House’s chief budget-writer said Friday. Rep. Harold Brubaker, RRandolph and senior co-chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, said there’s a plan afoot to set aside $260 million to $290 million more for K-12 education in next year’s budget than the House spending plan offered earlier this month. The House-approved spending plan would eliminate funds for assistants in grades 1-2, at a cost of $255 million. The Senate budget, currently set for a floor vote next week, would cut money for 13,000 teaching assistants by eliminating funds for them in grades 1-3. A Senate provision to hire more than 1,100 new teachers in grades 1-3 would remain in the proposed compromise, Brubaker said. “We could say the budget adds more teachers and we could fund all teacher assistant positions,” Brubaker told the Associated Press. The Insider newsletter first reported the rough dollar amount of the proposed education changes. The additional money would likely come from shifting funds currently proposed for government building repairs and renovations, public employee retirement contributions and the state’s reserve fund, Brubaker said.

Surviving nature’s fury A high-flying life his season’s rash of killer tornadoes is likely to be grist for scientific research for years to come as weather and climate experts try to figure out what spawned so many giant, violent twisters. But some of the toughest questions won’t focus on patterns in the natural world, but human nature. Contemplating a tornado like the “super cell” that struck Joplin, Mo., the issue is not so much why so many people died, but how so many people lived through a three-quarter-mile-wide vortex packing winds estimated in excess of 200 miles an hour. Some answers may come from a “service assessment” being done by the National Weather Service over the coming months, which will look at how well forecasters did at issuing warnings for the storm as well as how thoroughly those warnings were passed along and heeded. There’s continuing concern among forecasters and emergency managers that even as the technology to predict and alert residents to severe storms improves, people remain confused or jaded about how to react. They try to drive through floods, they try to ride out hurricanes and they hesitate to act on urgent warnings to take shelter. Joplin had 24 minutes of advance warning from radar imaging by local forecasters that a tornado was coming, according to NWS director Jack Hayes. That was enough time for many to take cover, yet scores seem to have been caught outdoors or in vehicles when the winds came. The warnings went out every way possible, from sirens to broadcast to Internet and iPhone apps. Still, there may have been confusion. An after-action report on the Mother’s Day 2008 twister that hit just outside Joplin, killing 13, pointed out that the Weather Service’s county-level warnings often did not match local landmarks or other anticipated points the storm would pass. The warning sirens used in many areas are often out of sync with the geographic warning boxes used by forecasters. One NWS study a few years ago concluded that as many as 75 percent of siren alerts for tornadoes are false alarms, prompting residents to ignore them or seek confirmation of a twister from other sources. Then there’s the basement gap. A lot of homes and businesses simply don’t have a good place to shelter, particularly from the most violent winds. Yet the stories of survival in bathtubs, under mattresses and inside convenience-store coolers show that it’s possible to improvise. Researchers need to take measure of how people perceived the threat, how they reacted and what parts of structures stood and what fell in hopes of offering better guidance and better odds against future funnel clouds.

Faith’s Lindsay Hess can sing it ... or wing it

ixty-one years in the newspaper business has dropped the names of a lot of interesting people on my smudged-up notepad. One of the most interesting, however, was a charismatic little baby that was born 100 yards from our house when I was 4 years old. I remember standing on the bridge 50 yards from his house and watching people come and go because a little baby was being born, and that was important. Lindsay was his name. Lindsay Hess. The first of four born to Jay and Ruby. He came aboard with many of the cherished German characteristics, along with a head of blonde curls DARRELL that his mama wouldn’t cut until WILLIAMS he rebelled on the first day of school. I was 4 and had the listening ear of a priest. I’d listen to anything, and then spread it — the first hint that ink was mixed with the blood that coursed through my veins. I had heard that a little baby was coming, and I was ready for the official news. I stood on the bridge and watched; my eyes kept wandering back to the house like they had a mind of their own. The news finally came, the baby had been born, and soon they had him swaddled in blankets and up for viewing inside the house. That was the beginning, and it wasn’t long before they moved away, to the other side of town, Faith, pop. 400. Six miles south of Salisbury. It took a decade and a half before we became buddies. A world war had come and gone, and college had me by the neck. We ended up in the same handful of young guys gathering at night in somebody’s car, having a hamburger and a milkshake — the four of us, drawn together like children to amusement parks. We settled the problems of the world, but nobody knew the answer to acne. Trying to capsule Lindsay Hess in this small space is like trying to place dinosaur eggs in a bird’s nest. For awhile, he floundered. Dropped out of school. Did odd jobs. Found out that he had a voice, and that it could sing. Traveled to Baltimore and sang at our wedding. Sang at other weddings, in plays, concerts. He also discovered that he could fly. And that, he did. Worked his way through instruments. Moved on into twin-engine planes. Became the personal pilot for at-that-time famous stock-car racer Curtis Turner. Flew the world, or most of it. One day, my phone rang. It was Lindsay. Said that Turner had some property in West Virginia and that he needed photos of certain parts of it. So, we went there and we made the photos. Turner got the photos he wanted and rewarded me with a nice gift of appreciation. Time passes, and Lindsay has purchased two stunt planes and is doing stunts for Carowinds. With a buddy flying the other plane, they bring terror-based entertainment to the thousands



Now 82, Lindsay Hess has serenaded audiences, piloted stunt planes and managed airports, including the one in Rowan County. looking on below. I get a call one day, and he wants to know if I want to go for a ride. Sure. Told me to bring the kids, if they also want to ride. We all go; and, one at a time, Lindsay gives us 15 minutes of what it’s like to be upside down and inside out and scraping the top leaves off tall pines while traveling at what seems to be the speed of light. He learned to do well such acts of daring, all the while moving up the ladder of aeronautic success. His last job as airport manager was with the Rowan County Airport. During those days, he would take his air show all around the country. On this particular day, he and his two sons were doing a show at an airport near Greensboro. The usual crowd was there, and Lindsay was on his last act. This required his two sons — one on each side of the runway. Each held a 15-foot pole with a banner stretched between them. His job was to come in fast, turn the plane upside down, and flash down the runway, cutting the banner, flip back upright, and move on off, turn, come back and land. Something happened, however, and the next thing Lindsay knew, he was on the ground, sliding, upside down, sparks and debris flying past, and his mind whirling in a feverish muddle. The plane slides to a stop. His injuries were minor, and his hands had their own mind. They knew what to do, and they did it. Seconds later, he was on the ground and moving away, barely in time, for the plane had caught fire and was burning furiously. Lindsay stayed on as airport manager for a while, but the spark was gone. Now 82, he has retired to the old home place in Faith, helping with the care and comfort of his ailing wife and the joy of seeing his grandkids grow up. • • • Darrell Williams is a retired editor of The Gazette in Gastonia.

Young talent on display at Carson High concert ...

EDITOR Letters policy

Tuesday evening during the last contestant showing of “American Idol,” I attended a chorus concert at Carson High School. Under the direction of Megan Riddle Wyatt, the chorus students provided a fun and enjoyable concert for many who attended. What a great feeling to see all this talent showcased in our public schools. As a former band student, I know the music departments are often overlooked. For me it proves how important it is to keep the arts programs in our public school systems. — Millicent K. Hoffner

Help save wellness fund

On May 20, I attended the chorus and band concert that was held at West Rowan High School. My granddaughter, Katie Corriher, was one of the participants in the concert, and the auditorium was full of parents, grandparents and friends. This was one of the most spectacular performances I have ever seen. All the participants in the concert performed so well that they should have been in a Broadway theater. Thanks to those wonderful young people who gave us such an enjoyable evening. — Doris Pless

We are hearing that the advocacy and education the Health & Wellness Trust Fund, its grantees, and partners have been doing the last two weeks is making an impact. We still have work to do if we are to save the HWTF. Please help us by making phone calls and sending emails to your senators and Governor Perdue. The Health & Wellness Trust Fund supports programs like TRU and Quitline NC that have proven effective in reducing teen tobacco use. The HWTF does not use one dime of taxpayers’ money. It is funded by the master settlement agreement with the tobacco companies. Destroying the HWTF is a broken promise to North Carolina. This money was specifically earmarked for youth tobaccco prevention. Don’t Let TRU go up in smoke. Call today (919715-0690 and 919-733-5708). The vote will take place Tuesday (May 31). Thank you for your support. — Jennifer Porter

... And also at West Rowan

ALEIGH — Sometimes ideas circulating around the Legislative Building provoke both laughter and scorn. So it was with legislation that moved through a state House committee recently which would fund government by tax form check-off. SCOTT The proMOONEYHAM posal from House Republicans was ingenious really. If you want to give all or some of your state tax refund to the universities, just check a box. If you decided to designate that refund for the state’s entire general operating fund, you could do that too. Or you could check a box to give money to public schools, state museums, or for the health care of the poor. As one supporter noted, you can currently make a check mark to give a few dollars for protecting little birds and furry critters. Why not everything else in state government? That remark and others led to a few cackles around the room. Democrats, though, called the legislation a political ploy, an attempt to call attention to their support of continuing a penny sales tax hike. Or, maybe it was meant to divide people: You give to the government functions that affect you; I’ll give to those that affect me. The Democrats weren’t laughing. I can’t figure out why.

Democrats called the legislation a political ploy. After all, I’d like to defund a few things in state government. Right now, the state legislature is at the top of my list. With a few minor changes, this legislation offers an excellent opportunity to create more responsive government. We just need to add a few more boxes. So, here are some suggestions: • A check-off to decide whether or not state legislators get paid each year. If feasible, responses could be sorted and results compiled by legislative district. That way not all legislators would be forced to suffer because of public disgruntlement regarding some of their colleagues. • In that same vein, how about letting taxpayers use their tax forms to vote on whether various classes of state employees get raises each year? State leaders could be surprised to see teachers getting a vote of confidence. Highway patrolmen, on the other hand, should probably be prepared to live on a fixed income. • Every few years, legislators and governors begin the refrain that North Carolina’s corporate income tax is too high. Let’s see if the people agree. In fact, given that so few companies actually organize as corporations and pay at the corporate tax rate, the state could create a separate page on the tax form for people to decide which of the big, multi-state corporations get a tax break, and which pay more. This change would surely be accompanied by a huge upswing in customer service at major retailers and banks. • Finally, how about a check-off to fund political campaigns so that the elected won’t be beholden to the groups with legislation and state contracts before them? Oh wait, there’s already one of those. Now who wants to do away with that? • • • Scott Mooneyham writes about state government for Capitol Press Association.

Obama honors Holocaust victims in trip to Poland WARSAW, Poland (AP) — President Barack Obama on Friday honored the memories of those slain in the Warsaw Ghetto uprising against Nazis, telling one elderly man that the memorial was a “reminder of the nightmare” of the Holocaust in which 6 million Jews were killed. The president also helped placed a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, dedicated to all unidentified soldiers

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — NASA completed its part in the construction of the International Space Station on Friday, with the final spacewalkers in the 30year shuttle program attaching an extension boom. “Twelve years of building and 15 countries and now it’s the Parthenon in the sky and hopefully the doorstep to our future,” spacewalker Gregory Chamitoff before heading back inside. “So congratulations everybody on assembly complete.” Chamitoff said it was fitting for space shuttle Endeavour to be at the space station for the end of construction since it was there for the first assembly mission in December 1998.

Need A/C?

It was the fourth spacewalk in a week for the Endeavour astronauts, who are headed back to Earth in just a few days to end NASA’s next-tolast shuttle flight. One last flight in July will bring up supplies. NASA managers on Friday afternoon gave Endeavour the all-clear for an early Wednesday landing. A final review of 3-D images showed the shuttle’s delicate heat shield wasn’t damaged. No other significant U.S. components are due to fly to the space station, which still has a decade of life ahead. That was the job of the space shuttles — to haul up the big building blocks as well as loads of smaller items — and now they’re retiring.

they used to restrain Shah and an employee. After the jewelers made a $7 million insurance claim, insurers and authorities became suspicious as it emerged that the jewelers’ businesses were in debt for hundreds of thousands of dollars. The men, both immigrants from India, shared offices in Manhattan’s Diamond District. Kankariya’s company, Real Creations, dealt in jewelry; Shah’s business, Dialite Imports, bought and sold loose diamonds. While insurer Lloyd’s of London ultimately didn’t pay the claim, it spent large sums investigating it, attorney Owen B. Carragher Jr. told the court. Shah and Kankariya maintained throughout their trial that they really were robbed. But their lawyers said Friday the gem dealers now accept responsibility.

Two diamond dealers sentenced to prison in fake NY heist NEW YORK (AP) — Two diamond dealers were sent to prison Friday for more than a year for staging an elaborate heist in hopes of snaring insurance money to save their failing business, a crime their attorneys said was driven by desperation. “Every day for the rest of my life, I will carry the sin of this case. Every day for the rest of my life, I will live with the fact that I have brought this sin and terrible hardship on my entire family,” said Atul Shah, apologizing and sobbing before he and Mahaveer Kankariya were sentenced to 20 months to five years behind bars. Shah, 49, and Kankariya, 45, were convicted in March of engineering a New Year’s Eve 2008 stick-up with flourishes fit for a caper movie: bandits disguised as Hasidic Jews, wearing fake beards and brandishing realistic-looking toy guns as they seemingly forced Shah to open a safe and empty it of gems. Police found plastic ties, duct tape and disarray when they arrived. Actual video footage told a different story. Security camera images — captured on a device that prosecutors said the dealers tried unsuccessfully to destroy with drain cleaner — showed Shah and Kankariya had replaced many of the jewels in the safe with empty boxes just hours before the purported hold-up. The supposed robbers sometimes put the boxes they’d just grabbed back in the safe and mishandled the plastic ties

DEAUVILLE, France (AP) — Russia abandoned one-time ally Moammar Gadhafi and offered Friday to mediate a deal for the Libyan leader to leave the country he has ruled for more than 40 years. The striking proposal by a leading critic of the NATO bombing campaign reflects growing international frustration with the Libyan crisis and a desire by the Kremlin for influence in the rapidly changing Arab landscape. With Gadhafi increasingly isolated and NATO jets intensifying their attacks, Russia may also be eyeing Libya’s oil and gas and preparing for the prospect that the lucrative Libyan market will fall into full rebel control. “He should leave,” Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said of Gadhafi. “I proposed our mediation services to my partners. Everyone thinks that would be useful.” The proposal thrust Medvedev into the spotlight at a summit in France of Group of Eight rich nations. Talk of this year’s Arab world uprisings has dominated the summit.

SALE FROM 1a sales have never brought in less than $6,000, and last May proceeds were $9,000. The spring events always seem to do a little better than the fall sales. Brown started out Friday with $3,500 already raised from items she pre-sold, making her confident that she would reach the $100,000 benchmark. The yard sales work thanks to the public’s donation of items, patronage at the sales and the help she receives from so many people, Brown said. “I could not do this without all of this help,” she added. Ralph, Helen and their friends always like to pick out an item before each sale, believing that if it sells, it would be a miracle. These miracles have happened every year, with the selling of things such as a 1998 Oldsmobile, a neighbor’s concrete steps and a load of items brought from New WAYne hinshAW/FOR the saLIsBURY POst York and the trailer on Zachary Wilhelm, 9, helps helen Brown set up a table which they came.

your services are no longer required at the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office. All county owned equipment should be returned immediately.” When Sheriff’s Office spokesman Capt. John Sifford gave the Post a copy of the memo, he wrote in an email that it would be “the only comment that the Sheriff would have at this time.” The Post then asked Rowan County Manager Gary Page and Jay Dees, the county’s attorney, to provide a written dismissal notice that complies with a state personnel records law that took effect in October or a reason the county didn’t have to provide one. Under that law, when a government employee is dismissed, the firing agency must give the employee a letter that states the “specific acts or omissions that are the basis of the dismissal.” And those letters are public record, according to the law. But Dees replied that the

When rain comes, her volunteers work swiftly — like a baseball team’s ground crew — to cover everything with plastic and tarps. “It’s a good yard sale, and it’s going to a good cause,” Lynn Barringer said, looking over the items Friday. “I’ll be back tomorrow. I’m just kind of grazing now.”

does require public agencies to create a dismissal letter for every employee fired for disciplinary reasons, “including employees who are not otherwise entitled to such formal notification.” And, he wrote, those letters are open to public inspection. And now, the Sheriff’s Association — and groups representing school boards and counties — are backing legislation that would put an exemption into law. Sen. Pete Brunstetter, a Republican from Forsyth County, has sponsored a bill that would reduce the amount of information taxpayer-funded agencies must make public. It would also exempt sheriff’s departments and other agencies with “at will” employees from having to write dismissal letters for those employees, the News & Observer of Raleigh reported. No telephone listing for Roach could be found Friday.

The quality of the items, their cleanliness and the fact they’ve been tested are things customers appreciate. “She takes a lot of time and has a lot of pride,” Barringer said. Local businesses often help in supplying food for the workers, such as pizza, hamburgers and hot dogs, as the Browns try to make sure something’s available for lunch and dinner. “We make it sort of a party atmosphere,” Ralph Brown said.

county didn’t have to provide that letter in this case. “In short, a sworn deputy’s employment is different than civilian employees that fall under state or county personnel policies, in that sworn deputies may be dismissed for any reason or no reason at all,” Dees wrote in an email to the Post. “ Where it is permissible to dismiss a sworn deputy for no reason at all, it is my opinion that no dismissal letter is required.” Dees wrote that the new law requires a dismissal notice “where it is otherwise required by law (or personnel policies) — typically for employees covered by personnel policies substantially equivalent to state personnel policies. This is not the case as to sworn deputies, whose service is completely at the discretion of the elected sheriff.” On Nov. 8, however, Grayson G. Kelley, chief deputy attorney general with the N.C.

South opens tonight BY MIKE LONDON

LANDIS — South Rowan American Legion baseball coach Michael Lowman caught hail on Friday. “It was hailing rocks,” said Lowman, who was ready to practice but instead watched Mother Nature’s angry venting from the safety of his car. Hopefully, the weird weather wasn’t a dire omen for a South team that will be missing many of last season’s stars when it begins its season at home tonight at 7 p.m. against High Point. It was just about all sunshine for Lowman in 2010 when South stormed to the best record (26-8) in the program’s 15-year history and won the regular season title in the Southern Division of Area III for the first time. Eventual state champion Kernersville finally knocked South out of

the playoffs in the third round. With standouts such as Julio Zubillaga, Blake Houston, Patrick Bearden, Tyler Freeze and Randy Shepherd missing, few are predicting a South repeat, but Lowman believes his team can challenge again if things fall into place defensively. “As a coach you’re always optimistic going into a new season,” he said. “I do like our pitching and I think we’ll probably score enough runs. I’m just not sure about our defense right now. We’ve got a crowd at second base, and our outfield is pretty unsettled.” Houston, the center fielder, and second baseman Zubillaga were goldglove types at premium defensive positions last summer as well as .400 hitters.

Mavs: Bring on the Heat

Poking fun at Busch

BY JAIME ARON Associated Press

DALLAS — Back in the NBA finals, back to trying to beat the Miami Heat. Pretty wild how things have worked out for the Dallas Mavericks, isn’t it? “It doesn’t really matter that much to me,” Dirk Nowitzki said Friday. “ N o thought whatsoever,” echoed Jason NOWITZKI Terry. Oh, well. So much for the story line of the 2011 Mavs seeking redemption for 2006. If the only two holdovers don’t care, nobody else should. The message Nowitzki and Terry are sending is this club is focused on beating whatever team the NBA playoff bracket throws their way. They’ve already gone through LaMarcus Aldridge and the Trail Blazers, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and the Lakers and Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the Thunder. So, for their final act, they might as well get the team everyone’s been talking about since last summer — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and a Miami franchise that coincidentally was the club that got in Dallas’ way five years ago. Nowitzki emphasized another point: This isn’t about the Heat and what they do. It’s about the Mavericks continuing to do the things that have helped them win 10 of their last 11 playoff games, including five straight on the road. “We just got to go for it and do the things that got us here — aggressive defense, rebound the ball and ball movement on the offensive end of the floor,” he said. The Mavericks locked up their second trip to the finals on Wednesday night. The next night, the Heat wrapped up their second trip to the finals, setting up the ‘06 rematch starting Tuesday in Miami. Terry is an emotional player who fires himself up by sleeping in the other team’s uniform shorts the night before every game. So, at the very least, when he saw the Heat wrap up the East title, he probably let out a, “Here we go again,” with either a smile or a frown to indicate how he felt about it. But he also explained why it’s so easy to be dispassionate about this. “Only two people on this team are still playing, Dirk and I,” he said. “For them, it’s Wade and (Udonis) Haslem. It’s really not the same situation.”

NASCAR fans seek autographs — and a victory — from Dale Earnhardt Jr. on Sunday in the Coca-Cola 600.

We want Dale! Harvick says win by Junior would be good for sport BY MATT MARKEY Toledo Blade

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — It has been more than a hundred races since Dale Earnhardt, Jr., NASCAR’s icon by legacy, has forced a checkered flag to flutter in a Sprint Cup Series event. In excess of a thousand days have passed since the sport’s most popular driver has been its best during that segment of motorized mayhem called a race.

Kevin Harvick competes with Earnhardt every week as a fellow driver and does everything he can to prevent Earnhardt and anyone else from winning. But Harvick stepped out of his role as the driver manning the cockpit of the No. 29 Budweiser Armed Forces Chevrolet for a moment here earlier this week and spoke as the pragmatic businessman and team owner who wants to see the sport thrive. He wants to see Junior win.

“I hope so, because Dale’s a good person, and obviously he’s good for the sport,” Harvick said. “Dale winning would be like us all winning.” Harvick came to Michigan to promote next month’s racing schedule at Michigan International Speedway that will be highlighted by the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 Sprint Cup race. He said Earnhardt, whose last Cup win at MIS was in

Step down moves Sadler to the top of the standings BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press

CONCORD — Elliott Sadler will be on standby for Paul Menard on Sunday, just in case the 20 stitches closing a cut in his foot prevent him from completing the Coca-Cola 600. It’s the closest Sadler will be to a Sprint Cup race so far this season. After a dozen years racing in NASCAR’s elite division, Sadler had to take a step back to get his career on track. He’s now one level down, in the Nationwide Series, driving on Saturdays for Kevin Harvick Inc. Make no mistake, Sadler is hardly slumming. He’s running up front again, contend-

ing for wins for the first time in years, and goes into Saturday’s race at Charlotte Motor Speedway leading the Nationwide standings. “The biggest adjustment he’s had to make is just to get comfortable racing in the top five every week,” Harvick said. “That’s just something he hasn’t got to do over the last several years. Winning races, you don’t necessarily forget how to do that, but you forget how many small things come with that to be able to compete on a week-to-week basis.” Sadler had his share of good days at the top level, beginning with his 2001 victory at Bristol driving for the Wood Brothers. It led him to a ride at Robert



Elliott Sadler will be on standby for injured driver Paul Menard.

CONCORD — Moments after Brad Keselowski drove the fastest car at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Thursday night, the surging driver couldn’t resist poking fun at the driver caught going too fast two days earlier. Keselowski’s lap of 192.089 mph gave him the pole for Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600. He was then asked what’s been the difference in the past two Sprint Cup points races — finishes of third and 13th — after a miserable start to the season. “My crew chief, Paul Wolfe, he lives off of Perth Road,” Keselowski said. “So maybe he found some secrets there. There’s a lot of speed on that road, I hear.” Perth Road in nearby Troutman was where a police officer said he clocked Kyle Busch driving 128 mph in a 45 mph zone on Tuesday. On this day, an apologetic Busch had only the 21st fastest time and Keselowski continued a satisfying turnaround following bad performances and criticism from teammate Kurt Busch. “Everything is motivation for me and that was no exception,” Keselowski said. AJ Allmendinger (191.693 mph) will join Keselowski on the front row for NASCAR’s longest race. Carl Edwards, who won last week’s All-Star race then wrecked his car in a celebration mishap in the grass, qualified third in his new car and took his share of ribbing, too. “If you win, will you spin out through the grass again?” Allmendinger asked Edwards. “No!” replied Edwards. Denny Hamlin, Jeff Burton and Jimmie Johnson rounded out the top six. Keselowski, whose lone Sprint Cup victory came at Talladega in 2009, enters the 400-lap race 24th in the points standings with just one top-10 finish this year. But Keselowski said the departure this month of Penske Racing technical director Tom German “has opened doors that were never opened before” for his No. 2 Dodge team. “Every week we just keep picking away a little here, a little bit there,” Keselowski said. “We’re starting to get more people to believe in us.”

Mocksville Legion could be stout From staff reports

After a 9-18 effort in 2010, Mocksville hopes to return to prominence in American Legion baseball this season, and it could happen. Charlie Kurfees returns for his second season as head coach. Besides most of the members of Davie County’s powerful high school team (22-3). Mocksville coach Charlie Kurfees will have five players from Forbush and some additional help from West Rowan and North Iredell. Jacob Barber, Connor Bodenhamer, Nick Boswell, Alex Newman, Javan Phillips and Joe Watson are Davie County starters who plan to play for the Legion team. Forbush slugger Caleb Brawley, Mountain Valley Conference Player of the Year, is also on board and is expected to play third base. The list of returnees includes Tyler Jordan, Tyler King, Zach Long, Dillon Byerly, D.J. Webb and Brandon Meade. Webb and King are West Rowan products. Davie plays its first home game tonight at Rich Park.

SOUTH FROM 1B man at High Point this year, played right field for the Legion team last summer and probably will move to center. There’s no doubt Miles has been the greatest offensive force in program history. He belted 10 homers, drove in 58 runs and batted .473 last summer. Miles already owns South’s career records for hits (163), doubles (26), triples (nine) and RBIs (121). He enters this season tied with Shepherd for the most career homers (18) and needs to cross the plate four times to break Ryan Bostian’s record for runs scored. Another returning big bat is shortstop Gunnar Hogan, a Catawba signee. The Carson senior hit .336 with six homers and 35 RBIs last summer. Also in the middle of the lineup will be Joseph Basinger, a veteran who shared catching duties with Freeze last summer. Also a Carson senior, Basinger hit six homers and knocked in 28 runs for the 2010 Legion team. Cory Deason and Jacob Dietz are coming off strong high school seasons for South Rowan High. Dietz, a Belmont Abbey signee, is playing Legion ball for the first time and is pencilled in as the starting third baseman. Deason didn’t play much last summer before breaking his hand in a game at Mooresville, but he’s been the biggest surprise of Lowman’s workout sessions. “The way he’s swung the bat, Cory has to be in the lineup somewhere,” Lowman said. “He’ll have a lot of roles.” Deason will get DH at-bats and will back up Dietz at third. He could be in the mix in left field, plus he’s the backup catcher. Basinger will need nights off when the weather gets steamy and the back-toback-to-back games pile up. South will benefit again

Joining Kennedy will be Tailar Murphy (Northern Guilford) and Carmen Grubb (Davie). Kennedy has had an outstanding high school and junior career and should provide and immediate impact. Murphy has proven to be steady performer and will add depth in the middle of the lineup, while Grubb could see playing time this year.  On the men’s side, Pennsylvania native Matt Hardman (Gettysburg) highlights a solid group of five incoming freshman. His 72.4 scoring average this past fall led his high school team. Joining Hardman will be North Carolina products Marshall Ritchie (Concord), high school teammates Jeremy Kilgore and Logan Ellis (Southeast Guilford), and Brian Donaldson (Clinton). “This group could be the deepest and most talented we have had here at Catawba in some time” Gealy said. “Each of these incoming freshmen has the talent to compete in the SAC. With our returners we look to be very competitive this coming year.”



this summer from the presence of Northwest Cabarrus junior Weston Smith. Smith was one of Northwest’s top two pitchers and has power at the plate. Smith batted .286 for the Legion team last year with 17 RBIs in just 63 at-bats. He’ll play first base a lot and is a DH candidate. Key newcomers are Carson first baseman Kyle Bridges and West Rowan outfielder Patrick Hampton. Bridges, who will play at Lynchburg, doesn’t have power, but he’s a quality defender at first base and a lefty hitter who makes contact. Bridges, who played for the Kannapolis Legion team last summer, also is working in the outfield. Hampton, a Catawba football signee best known as West’s all-county tight end, is a lefty hitter with some power. He walks a lot, competes like it’s a football game and is good defensively. He played center field for West and could start in one of the outfield corners for Lowman. Second base is the biggest mystery. Dylan Goodman, the starting shortstop for South Rowan High; Parker Hubbard, the regular second baseman for South, and youngster Connor Bridges, who played mostly third base for Carson, are the candidates. Hubbard played Legion last summer and hit .229 in 35 at-bats. The younger Bridges, Kyle’s brother, was impressive in a limited role for Carson. Goodman has surprising power and good speed and could also help in the outfield. Lowman envisions a starting rotation of Smith, South right-hander Matt Miller and

veteran southpaws Dylan Walker and Jesse Park, with South righty Preston Penninger the No. 5 starter and a key guy out of the bullpen. “I like Preston out of the pen because I know what I’ll get,” Lowman said. “He’ll throw strikes.” Penninger also could get some swings. He led South Rowan High with 19 RBIs. Smith, a strapping righthander, was 3-1 with a 2.38 ERA last summer and is a college prospect who will compete in this summer’s State Games. Miller was 3-0 with three saves for the Legion team in 2010 and was South Rowan High’s ace this spring. He also swings the bat with authority and is one more candidate to play left field. Walker pitched some this year at Catawba Valley Community College. He was 7-1 in Legion ball last summer, tying the program record for victories in a season. The crafty Park was 5-1 last summer with a 3.72 ERA. He didn’t pitch in college this year but plans to play at Pfeiffer next season. On paper, the starters look stout. Pitchers who accounted for 20 of last season’s 26 wins are back in uniform. The bullpen is the question mark. Lots of arms are needed for a long Legion summer. “But we do have an experienced rotation that should give us a chance,” Lowman said. “And our schedule has been scaled back a little bit.” Also expected to contribute are South Rowan High’s Jordan Kennerly, Bubba McLaughlin and Spencer Matlock, Carson’s Dylan Atwell and West’s Ethan Wansley. The date for submitting final 18-man rosters has been moved back to June 23. South is scheduled to open tonight at home with a nonleague game against High Point. “We’ll be able to play it if we don’t get any more rain,” Lowman said. Or hail.

vania and Maryland. This season, the Hilltoppers landed six players from California and even attracted skilled D-I transfers from Central Florida. Sifford and Cowan are the only two N.C. signees. Sifford is one of nearly a dozen linebacker hopefuls, but he’s optimistic that he can earn his place in the program. “I think it’s going to help him a lot that he and Eric are going up there together,” West Rowan coach Scott Young said. “When you go that far from home your chance of success is much greater if you’ve got a YOUNG support system. We’re hoping this might open up a new D-II pipeline for our players. We’ve got good relationships with Catawba and UNC Pembroke, and this could be another one.” Sifford said Cowan’s presence will make one decision all college freshmen have to make a lot easier. “Eric being there means I’ll have a roommate,” Sifford said with a laugh. “We’ll push each other.” Sifford first attracted attention as a varsity sophomore at East Rowan. He rushed for 479 yards and scored three touchdowns. As a junior, he was an allcounty beast for East, usually going both ways. He missed the first two games in 2009 with a balky knee, but he made an astounding debut with three sacks, a forced fumble

Clearly, he’s done his homework, proving he has given some thought to this being a rematch. “Then, for us, I (was) the point guard. Look who’s the point guard now!” Terry said, laughing. “Big difference.” Yes, Jason Kidd is an upgrade from Terry, who is better suited for his role as a scorer, specifically the instant-offense guy off the bench. Mavs fans also might chuckle about Dallas’ starting center in ‘06, Erick Dampier, now playing for Miami. He’s yet to play this postseason. In 2006, Dallas won the first two games at home, then went to Miami and melted down. They blew a big lead in the fourth quarter of Game 3 and never recovered. Pat Riley of the Heat not only outcoached Avery Johnson of the Mavericks, Johnson may have outsmarted himself by moving hotels midway through their stay in Florida, fearing that South Beach was too much of a distraction. Johnson’s successor, Rick Carlisle, isn’t concerned about it being an issue this time. “Not with our curfew,” he said, offering a rare giggle. With Kidd and Nowitzki vs. James and Wade, each team starts two players who are among the best of their generation. The clubs have a lot more in common: both 12-3 this postseason, both closing out the conference finals in five games. In the regular season, the Mavs and Heat tied for the most road wins. There was only a one-game difference in overall wins — 58 for Miami, 57 for Dallas; that’s why the series is starting on the Heat’s court. Had they had the same record, the Mavericks would’ve had the edge because they won both head-to-head meetings. Because those games were in November and December, Carlisle insists they don’t matter. Still, it’s worth noting those were Miami’s only two losses in a 24-2 stretch that proved to everyone this experiment of superstars who are good friends teaming up to win a title just might work. The backlash from that pairing — and the way “The Decision” was handled last summer — produced a huge group of Heat haters. Those folks are now Mavs lovers, a cuddly acceptance that’s unusual for this franchise. “There’s no good guys, bad guys,” Nowitzki said. “There’s two good teams that made it to this stage and both want to win. So I’m not really worried about all that stuff.” Nowitzki was a free agent last summer, too. Teams didn’t pursue him because they were so sure he would remain in Dallas. But he admitted he would have listened had James and Wade invited him to be part of what they were putting together. “But they didn’t, so it wasn’t really an option,” he said.

West Rowan’s Quentin Sifford takes a turnover upfield during a 40-0 victory over eventual 4A finalist Davie County. and a fumble recovery as East pummeled Concord for the first time in a generation. In a win against Hickory Ridge that season, he rushed for two TDs and threw for another touchdown on a wobbly halfback pass. Finally, he created a game-sealing interception on defense with a hit on the HR quarterback. For the season, Sifford rushed for 803 yards and six scores and accumulated 202 rushing yards in East’s two playoff games. He and his family made the decision to transfer to West for the 2010 season. It was a tough call for several reasons. Sifford’s father,

Walter, was a tremendous lineman at East in the 1970s, and Sifford was very close to a lot of the Mustangs. But going back to West also meant being reunited with kids he’d gone to West Middle School with and playing for the program where his brother, Travis, had been a wide receiver. “I think the biggest thing was I really wanted to graduate with those guys I grew up with,” Sifford explained. Obviously, he also got to play football for a punishing program that has risen from local bully to nationally ranked powerhouse with three straight 3A state championships and 46

consecutive wins. “Quentin took a leap of faith coming here,” Young said. “He’d gotten quite a few accolades at the running back position, but for us he was going to be strictly a linebacker.” After a few growing pains adjusting to West’s brand of X’s and O’s, Sifford’s physical tools took over. He’s very strong and surprisingly fast, and he made an impact as West’s “stud” linebacker. West’s linebackers were a question mark in August but a source of pride by October. They helped coordinator David Hunt’s defense turn in a school-record six shutouts.

Sifford’s best game may have been in a 32-0 win against Mooresville. Sifford had two sacks and had a key fumble recovery that led to a TD. Sifford gave linebackers coaches Kevin Parks and Lee Linville the lion’s share of the credit for his all-county season. “They’re the ones who never stopped pushing me to get to where I needed to be,” Sifford said. Sifford’s high school career had a happy ending — 16-0 and a state title. “I got a ring and I got a scholarship,” Sifford said. “That’s a great year. I don’t see how it could have worked out any better.”


high school,” she said. “It’s a lot harder.” Zemanick didn’t seem to mind. “”It’s exciting,” she said. “I’m really looking forward to it.” • So is Murdock, who also ran cross country with her friend. And she fully intended to concentrate on that sport until visiting Southern Wesleyan. Soccer coach Tom Price gave her a chance to join the Warriors. “I got to play soccer with the players and he offered me a scholarship,” Murdock said. Murdock is a center on defense and should help the Warriors, who finished 8-9-2 last season. “I’ve been playing soccer since I was seven, in Y league and in the backyard,” said Murdock. Southeast Middle didn’t have a team, “so I played for

fun,” she said. But once at Carson, it was time to get serious. She was team captain for two of her four seasons and MURDOCK is an allc o u n t y Cougar this spring. She is ready for the leap to college athletics, although she seemed a bit surprised. “It’s something I never thought I’d get to do,” she said. “I’m really excited.” Murdock expects to begin her freshman season on defense, but added, “I’ll move around to where I’m more comfortable.” Murdock looked around at the coaches, friends and family before her signing party took place. “It’s going faster than I ever imagined,” she smiled.

COLLINS FROM 6B swing,” Collins smiled. “He basically signed me right there.” He’s going to one of the CIAA’s top programs. The Rams finished second in the CIAA Championships and were third in the 25th PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championships in Florida. “They’re pretty good. I’ve been following them,” Collins said. Now, with a scholarship in his back pocket, Collins can improve on the

ROGERS FROM 6B lege. As he gets older, he’ll add strength and stamina to his lean, 6foot-1, 155-pound frame, and he already possesses sufficient arm strength to succeed at the next level. Rogers is optimistic he’ll still get to play third base in college, but he realizes it was his right arm that attracted Guilford’s attention. “I went to a showcase camp at Pfeiffer and was throwing mid-80s,” said Rogers, who said he’s reached 88 mph on radar guns. “The Guilford coaches talked to me, and at first I wasn’t all that interested because Guilford is D-III. But then they told me I probably could start my freshman year and I could get $20,000 to $28,000 in scholarships.” Rogers’ visit to the Greensboro school went well, and he signed. “Guilford doesn’t offer exactly what I want to study, but I’m going to start in the math and physics program,” Rogers said. “Hopefully, that will lead to something in technology and engineering, maybe at N.C.

Zemanick tried track in middle school and remembers crying when she wasn’t allowed to run the mile and was put in the 800 instead. By high school, she had found her niche — cross country. “I like the longer run,” she said. Rouse’s Warriors are among the best in the Southern States Athletic Association. They placed third in the league and ninth in the national meet. Speak of Rouse and a big smile comes to Zemanick’s face. “I clicked with him,” she said. “He’s so cool.” And she said that even after she saw her workout regimen for the summer. The first day, she ran six miles along with a workout. “It’s a lot different from

game he loves and plan on his future. “I think I can get a lot better, he said. “Since I was a kid, everybody said I had a pretty good swing. I didn’t think too much of it until this COLLINS year. Now, I’ll play golf every day.” Everhart thinks the real talent in Collins will emerge once he is at college. He called the Cavalier senior a seasonal golfer because he played football. Not much golf was played

State, later on.” As a D-III school, Guilford can’t give athletic scholarships, but it does find academic scholarships for great students who are also good athletes. Rogers fits that description on both ends. He is a very good athlete. He led the East Rowan basketball team in scoring last winter with 8.5 points per game, and while the Mustangs weren’t exactly the Miami Heat, he did pump in 23 against Concord and 22 against Statesville, two very talented teams. Stopwatches time him as an average runner, but he’s above-average on the bases. He can get a jump and he can read pitchers. He was 8-for8 on steal attempts. Rogers is also among the top students in East’s senior class. He owns a GPA in the 4.7 range, plus a sterling SAT score. Rogers’ teammates Luke Thomas and Jamey Blalock are right at the top of East’s class of 2011 as well. “We’ve got as strong a group academically as we’ve ever had here,” Hightower said. Rogers was a part-time player as a junior on East’s 31-2 state championship team. He filled in at shortstop

during the fall. “I think his best golf is ahead of him,” Everhart said. “He’s got a really strong, powerful swing. When he plays every day, Kyle will be something special.” Collins actually got off to a slow start. He said he wasn’t happy with his 86 in the county tournament, although he tied for top honors among North golfers. “But he really came on at the end,” Everhart said. In fact, although North didn’t qualify as a team for the 1A regionals, Collins joined teammates Jesse Pinkston and Dillon Mason as individ-



when regular shortstop Preston Troutman pitched, and he was given a few opportunities to earn a regular job in the outfield. In 49 official at-bats, he batted .286 and drove in seven runs. He only pitched twice on a team with a host of arms. He was 1-0, winning in relief at Staton Field against Davie County. He entered 2011 without fanfare, but he was Hightower’s third baseman opening day against Mount Tabor. He went 2-for-2 with three RBIs to get his senior year off to a good start and never really hit a slump.He had eight multi-hit games and had three hits in a trio of ballgames. “He’s not a power guy, but he’s a good middle-of-the-field to oppositefield hitter, and he was a heads-up

ual qualifiers. Collins credits his short game. “The strongest part of my game is my irons,” he said. “They’re really great right now.” And so is life in the Collins’ family. Everhart proved to be a good coach. His mother, who, by the way, graduated from North with Everhart, proved to be a good recruiter. “I’m the first one in my family to receive an athletic scholarship,” Collins said proudly. There’s only one thing left to say about that. “Thanks, Grandpa.

guy on the bases,” Hightower said. “His offensive numbers were too good to ignore, and he was fun to watch at third base. He made the routine plays consistently, plus some great ones.” Rogers’ defensive gems included an amazing backhand play on a shot down the line at home against North Iredell that Brooks Robinson would’ve been thrilled to have made. Even better was the diving catch he made of a bunt against West Iredell in the NPC tournament championship game. That snag resulted in a rare triple play and was the key moment in a 1-0 victory. Fans will remember for years that East pulled off the hidden-ball trick to preserve that win, but without Rogers’ play, the trickery would never have happened. “I was pretty happy with the season I had defensively at third base,” Rogers said. “Four errors, all on throws, at third, plus one error when I was playing shortstop.” Rogers’ ability to slide over to shortstop proved an asset when Hightower used regular Justin Morris on the mound in the stretch run. With the emergence of Bradley Robbins as a mound stud, Rogers

wasn’t called on to pitch often as a senior, and his ERA was wrecked for the year by one ill-fated appearance against Davie. Still, his seven mound appearances showed future promise. He struck out 20 in 132⁄3 innings. Rogers’ stellar season was capped by the announcement that he’d been chosen to play in the two-game EastWest All-Star series for graduating seniors that will be contested in Winston-Salem on June 15. Hightower’s had many great players at East, but he said Rogers is the first he’s had to play in the all-star showcase for seniors. “It probably would’ve meant more to me if I hadn’t already signed with Guilford, but it’s still a great honor,” Rogers said. For a guy who had the toughest job in the county coming in, Rogers had himself quite a year as Holmes’ replacement. “Offensively, there’s no way I could do what Noah did because he’s one of the best hitters to ever come along,” Rogers said modestly. “But defensively, I did OK.” Hightower has another tough task now. He’s got to find a replacement for Rogers.

Sizemore swapped to A’s DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Tigers traded second baseman Scott Sizemore to the Oakland Athletics for left-handed reliever David Purcey on Friday. Sizemore was supposed to replace Placido Polanco as Detroit’s second baseman, but was never able to hang onto the job. After losing his roster spot to Will Rhymes out of spring training, he was recalled from Triple-A Toledo but hit just .222 in 17 games. “We just haven’t been able to get Scott over the hump offensively,” Tigers president Dave Dombrowski said. “We didn’t think we could go forward with that production from someone that we saw as an offensive second baseman.”

Associated Press CHICAGO — Kevin Correia pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning before the Pittsburgh Pirates held on to beat the Chicago Cubs 4-2 on Friday. Correia (7-4) limited Chicago to four singles and a pair of walks in 72⁄3 innings. He moved into a tie with Boston’s Jon Lester for the major league lead in wins, and has six of the Pirates’ 14 victories away from PNC Park this season. Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen remained a thorn in the Cubs’ side with two singles, a walk, an RBI and two stolen bases. He’s reached base in 19 straight games against the Cubs. Phillies 6, Mets 4 NEW YORK— Domonic Brown grounded a tiebreaking single under the glove of first baseman Daniel Murphy in the ninth inning, and the Phillies scored three runs off star closer Francisco Rodriguez to beat the sinking Mets. Jimmy Rollins drove in three runs for the Phillies and Roy Oswalt had an RBI single to go with six effective innings on the mound. With runners at the corners, Ryan Madson got Murphy to ground into a gameending double play. Justin Turner had a career-high four hits for the streaky Mets, who have dropped five of six after winning 10 of 14. Nationals 2, Padres 1 WASHINGTON — Michael Morse hit a home run on the first pitch in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Nationals to a win over the Padres. With the game tied at 1, Morse hit Mike Adams’ first pitch into the left field bullpen, and he trotted around the bases, tossed his helmet off and was pounded by his exuberant teammates. Moments later after a postgame interview, he was hit with shaving cream and doused with Gatorade. It was his sixth home run of the year.

LeBron better than MJ?

Horton hears a Stanley Cup final Associated Press

DALE FROM 1B June, 2008, has been getting closer to a return to Victory Lane. “He’s had opportunities to win races, and they’ve put themselves in position,” Harvick said, “and if you put yourself in that position many times, then you’re going to wind up winning some races. “We’ve seen the confidence grow through the year as they’ve been a little bit more successful, and once he gets the 100 percent confidence back . . . “ Harvick, who has been in the spotlight recently due to an emotionally charged ontrack fracas with Kyle Busch, said he can empathize with Earnhardt and the pressure the son of


LEBRON JAMES point lead and bowed out with a 83-80 loss to the Heat in Game 5 on Thursday. The Bulls were aiming for more after back-to-back 41-win seasons and firstround playoff exits, and did they ever get it. They boasted the league's MVP in Rose, the Coach of the Year in Tom Thibodeau and a league-leading 62 wins while advancing to the conference finals for the first time in 13 years. Not since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were here had the Bulls generated such a buzz and sent expectations rocketing like this in Chicago. MCHALE TO ROCKETS? HOUSTON — A person familiar with the situation says the Houston Rockets are close to hiring Kevin McHale as their new coach. McHale would take over for Rick Adelman, who left the team days after his fourth season in Houston. McHale, a Hall of Fame player for the Boston Celtics, spent 15 years with the Timberwolves in his native Minnesota. He was let go in 2009 and has recently served as a TV analyst. The 53-year-old McHale would become Houston's third coach since 2003, when Rudy Tomjanovich stepped down for health reasons. Jeff Van Gundy coached the team from 2003-07, taking the Rockets to three playoff appearances.

NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt, Sr., lives under every day. “I’m just glad I don’t have to be in his position, because the scrutiny and the attention and things that come with what he has to go through . . . “ Harvick said. “From the outside looking in, it seems unfair.” Harvick ranks fifth in points this season among the Cup drivers and has two wins in the first 11 races. The attention this weekend is on Charlotte Motor Speedway and the Coca-Cola 600, but following his win at MIS last August, Harvick said he is eager to get back to the two-mile layout in the Irish Hills. “Everybody’s jacked up about coming up here and excited because we won last year. We feel like we figured a lot of things out,” Harvick said about snapping a long

SADLER FROM 1B Yates Racing and a breakthrough season in 2004, when he won two races, earned a spot in the inaugural Chase for the championship and finished a career-best ninth in points. Sponsorship issues eventually made the situation at Yates shaky, and Sadler bolted in the middle of the 2006 season for Evernham Motorsports. That’s where things went bad. Evernham sold majority interest in the team to George Gillett, and a merger eventually morphed GillettEvernham Motorsports into Richard Petty Racing. All those business deals made Sadler the odd man out, and he once had to threaten to sue to stay in the car when the team tried to dump him. Sadler kept his ride, but layoffs and money woes took its toll and the team was not competitive. Sadler’s performance suffered — he had only 16 top-10 finishes over the last three years — and nobody at his organization wanted to hear about his problems. “I see all you guys in here with your cool computers and you probably have the latest and greatest technology,” Sadler told reporters. “Say I give you a story right now to


PAUL MENARD break, it’ll be the biggest story ever and I give one of you guys a computer and I give one of you guys a hammer, a chisel and a stone. I want you to write the story before the other guy finishes it. If not, I don’t want to hear no excuses, you should be able to do that. “That’d kind of be the same thing I went through.” RPM was restructured and scaled down to a two-car organization this season, and Sadler was sent on his way. But he refused to sign with an underfunded race team, and had no interest in being a start-and-park driver. In looking for the most

BOSTON — Nathan Horton scored with 7:33 left in Game 7, sending the Boston Bruins to the Stanley Cup finals for the first time in more than two decades with a 1-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference finals on Friday night. The right wing on Boston's top line cleanly beat goalie Dwayne Roloson by deflecting a pass across the slot from David Krejci. That set off a loud celebration among Bruins fans, who have waited a long time for a trip to the finals. Tim Thomas made 24 saves in his third career playoff shutout and second this season. Boston will open the Stanley Cup finals in Vancouver against the Western Conference champion Canucks on Wednesday. The Bruins won their most recent championship in 1972 and hadn't reached the finals since 1990, when they lost to the Edmonton Oilers. Both goalies were outstanding behind teammates playing energetic, impressive defense in a hard-hitting game without a single penalty. With 3 seconds left and the puck in the Lightning zone, Bruins center Patrice Bergeron raised his stick while standing in the "B" symbolizing the Bruins at center ice.


called them because she was concerned that former Michigan quarterback Tate Forcier was going to jump from her apartment window. An officer was able to get Forcier to open the door and "no police action was taken." Police released a one-page report Friday to The Associated Press, one day after it was reported by WOODTV in Grand Rapids. The police report says Forcier locked himself in a bedroom in Apartment 314 on April 22 and a woman told officers he was "leaning out a window." Forcier, who played two seasons at Michigan, planned to transfer to Miami but never enrolled.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State has cited privacy laws in declining to provide communications to and from coach Jim Tressel and other administrators regarding the relationship between star quarterback Terrelle Pryor and his hometown mentor. The Associated Press sought through a public records request any emails, notes or other information about the relationship between Jeannette, Pa., businessman Ted Sarniak and Pryor, who has been suspended for the first five games this fall for taking improper benefits from a Columbus tattoo-parlor owner.

TCU agreed in November to join the Big East17 in basketball, with more expansion likely. "We're going to make a strong push as coaches to bring all 17 teams to New York," Boeheim said. "Connecticut proved you can win five games. We've won four games. It's very doable."

NFL NORFOLK, Va. — An animal rights group bought NFL star Michael Vick's former dogfighting compound on Friday and plans to turn it into a rehabilitation center for chained and penned dogs.

TRACK ROME — World record-holder Usain Bolt needed a late kick to win his first race in nine months, capturing the 100 meters in 9.91 seconds to edge former record-holder Asafa Powell at the Golden Gala. Powell was timed in 9.93 and European champion Christophe Lemaitre finished third in 10.00. As usual, Bolt got off to a slow start, but unlike his most recent races he was behind until pulling in front with his very last strides. Bolt had not competed since he was beaten by Tyson Gay in Stockholm last August, ending the Jamaican's two-year unbeaten streak.

No. 1 Wozniacki loses in French Open in third round Associated Press

PARIS — If Caroline Wozniacki truly was torn up inside about her latest loss at a Grand Slam tournament, she certainly hid it well. Wozniacki smiled and shrugged while deflecting questions about being No. 1 in the rankings despite never having won a major title. Her wait for a breakthrough was extended Friday, when she was beaten 6-1, 6-3 by 28thseeded Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia in the third round of the French Open. Wozniacki’s early exit came a day after No. 2 Kim Clijsters was eliminated by 114th-ranked Arantxa Rus, marking the first time that the top two seeded

streak of less-than-stellar finishes at MIS. “For us, it’s fun because we were able to accomplish something that we hadn’t been able to accomplish for the nine years before that.” He tempers that excitement, however, with a slice of reality because Harvick is acutely aware that success in Sprint Cup involves a complex formula, the timely nailing of a series of fast-moving race set-up variables, and an ample dose of luck. “Confidence is a great thing, but for us, whether we win or lose, we are able to put last week aside. We talk about last week for about five minutes. Because what happened last week doesn’t really matter, even if you won. If you win, everyone is confident, but for us it’s really about just trying to focus on what’s ahead of us, instead of what’s behind us.”

competitive ride, he found Harvick, who offered him a chance to get in stellar equipment again. After a rocky opening three weeks, Sadler has scored seven top-5 finishes in the last nine races. “They’ve got the top-five stuff down ... the next step is to take it to the next level and start winning some races,” Harvick said. “It’s been a great process to see it evolve, and I’m very happy with what the team has done and with what Elliott has done.” Under a new rule that only allows drivers to race for one championship, Sadler doesn’t have to worry about Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski in his push for his first NASCAR championship. Sadler said he feels no pressure to win the title. “This is fun for me. I show up every week with a chance to run up front, get a top-five, lead laps and sit on poles,” he said. “This is not pressure. This is what we’re supposed to do. Pressure is showing up with a knife at a gunfight for three years. That’s pressure. This is fun. “I have learned this sport is a whole lot more fun when you have a team around you and a supporting cast around you that believes in you and wants to do well week in and week out.”

women failed to make the round of 16 at any Grand Slam tournament in the Open era, which began in 1968. It never had happened at the French Open since it began admitting foreign entrants in 1925. As if to prove that point, another French Open title contender, 2010 runner-up and 2009 semifinalist Sam Stosur of Australia, was beaten 6-4, 1-6, 6-3 by 51st-ranked Gisela Dulko of Argentina. But defending champion Francesca Schiavone of Italy advanced when her opponent, No. 29 Peng Shuai of China, stopped playing because she has a cold and couldn’t breathe properly. The most anticipated matchup of the day did not begin until early evening —

and did not finish Friday. Two-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic, who is on a 41-match winning streak, was tied at a set apiece with 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro when play was suspended at 9:15 p.m. because of darkness. The second-seeded Djokovic won the first set 6-3, but No. 25 del Potro took the second by the same score. Right after del Potro held serve to even the match, the chair umpire announced play would stop for the day; there are no artificial lights on the courts at Roland Garros. Earlier, 16-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer saved the only break point he faced in a 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 victory over No. 29 Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia.

The NBA notebook ... CHICAGO — As if the Bulls losing to Miami in the Eastern Conference finals wasn’t enough, Hall-ofFamer Scottie Pippen has added to Chicago’s pain by suggesting that LeBron James could be better than Michael Jordan. Pippen stirred the pot in an interview with ESPN radio on Friday morning, saying Jordan “is probably the greatest scorer to play the game” but James “may be the greatest player to ever play the game.” That set off an explosion on Twitter. Pippen responded first by posting, “For all of you that don’t know, I played the game you keep watching and cheering.” He softened his stance later, writing: “Don’t get me wrong, MJ was and is the greatest. But LeBron could by all means get to his level someday.” Jordan and Pippen won six championships with the Bulls in the 1990s. James moved a step closer to his first title when the Heat knocked out the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night, setting up a matchup with Dallas. BULLS WRAPUP CHICAGO — Derrick Rose vowed to learn from this, to get better, and insisted the Chicago Bulls would come back hungrier after the Miami Heat knocked them out in the Eastern Conference finals. Clearly, the standards are soaring now. As good as they were this season, the Bulls came up short. They blew a late 12-

Mr. Rogers’ new neighborhood Avery’s address now Guilford College BY MIKE LONDON

jon c. lakey/SALISBURY POST

East Rowan senior Avery Rogers, right, who helped the Mustangs to 19 victories, will play in the State Games.

GRANITE QUARRY — The two guys who had the toughest high school jobs in Rowan County this season had to be South shortstop Dylan Goodman and East third baseman Avery Rogers. They were stepping in to positions manned in awesome offensive fashion in 2010 by county co-players of the year Maverick Miles and Noah Holmes. Goodman, only a sophomore, showed signs of being a future all-county player. Rogers, an unheralded senior, arguably was the county’s top defensive third baseman and his contributions with the bat

(.342, 21 RBIs) exceeded all expectations. “Avery had a good senior season, and I thought he was the best third baseman around,” East coach Brian Hightower said. “We thought he’d have a heck of a glove for us, but he also came through offensively. We worried about not having Noah, and he made us not miss him quite as bad.” Rogers will play American Legion ball and is the likely starter for Rowan County at third base. In the fall, he’ll head to Guilford to continue his baseball career and education. It’s likely Rogers will mature into a good pitcher in col-

North Rowan’s Kyle Collins became interested in golf during vacations with his grandfather in Las Vegas.


SPENCER — North Rowan’s Kyle Collins’ future was mapped out at the age of five. No one realized it at the time but when he visited his grandfather in Las Vegas as a little kid, a golfer was born. “My grandfather got me started,” said Collins, who has accepted a scholarship to Winston-Salem State. “I picked it up pretty early. I always remember practicing my putting. I’d put a cup down and just hit it into the hole in the cup. I still do it to this day.” Collins has played golf for Kelly Everhart for four years but this season, he had his sights set on impressing someone enough to get a scholarship. He was shooting in the high-30s to low-40s over nine holes when he started looking at colleges. “I was comparing my

scores to all the colleges and thought Winston-Salem State would be the best fit,” he said. Everhart called WSSU coach Robert Bethea but received no reply. Collins’ mother, Queen, also made contact. Everhart chuckles at the day North was going to Chatham Central for a match and an excited Collins informed him that Bethea was coming. But Bethea was told to go to the wrong course and never saw Collins play. “It may have been a good thing,” Everhart said. “It wasn’t one of Kyle’s better days. He was frustrated. But I think things work out for a reason.” Bethea finally invited Collins up to Forsyth County for a visit at the Winston Lake course. On that day, he wasn’t frustrated. He played well. “(Bethea) really liked my


MOUNT ULLA — West Rowan senior Quentin Sifford passes the eye test. He looks like a football player is supposed to look. Specifically, he looks like a linebacker is supposed to look. Sifford weighs 225 pounds and maybe 5 pounds of that isn’t muscle or bone. Sifford’s biceps would have landed him a role in a Rocky movie if he’d come along earlier. His shoulders are as broad as the deck of an aircraft carrier. If you were Sifford, you’d walk around in a T-shirt — or without a shirt — as often as possible. In the summer, Sifford probably says, ‘Hey, guys, let’s go to the beach,’ ” every other day. Sifford has signed with Division II West Liberty in West Virginia. Head coach Roger Waialae, a native of Hawaii, and new linebackers coach Abu Ma’afala did a heck of a job selling the program when Sifford visited the campus along with West defensive back Eric Cowan. “All the coaches were nice, and I loved everything about West Liberty,” Sifford said. “When we got to our hotel, Coach Ma’afala was there to meet us. It was 12 at night and him being there to make sure we got up there OK, that impressed me. It impressed me a lot. That’s the kind of feeling I had with the coaches at West Rowan.” Probably Sifford would’ve been an FCS-level recruit if he had another inch or two in the height department. West Liberty’s list of recruits has him at 6-foot-1, but that’s a tad generous. Sifford was also held back earlier in the recruiting process by not getting his standardized test score taken care of earlier. Some schools passed on him that

Sifford will go to West Liberty as part of a West Rowan tag-team that will also include Cowan, a MaxPreps All-American and maybe the first prep All-American ever to sign with West Liberty. West Liberty, which has

Zemanick, Murdock sign BY RONNIE GALLAGHER

Carson’s Sierra Zemanick, left, and Jordan Murdock are going to continue their athletic careers at Southern Wesleyan for cross country and soccer.

CHINA GROVE — Sierra Zemanick and Jordan Murdock have helped Carson become a force in all sports in the North Piedmont Conference. Now, they’ll be teaming up at Southern Wesleyan, a college located in upstate South Carolina, 10 minutes from Clemson University. Zemanick has signed for cross country, while Murdock is going to play soccer for the Warriors. It seems Southern Wesleyan has found a pipeline to Rowan County. The two Cougars are joining cross country’s Dillon Kluttz of West

Rowan and Caleb O’Neal from South. In fact, Zemanick hinted that O’Neal may have informed cross country coach Chip Rouse about her. “He sent me a message on Facebook,” Zemanick said of Rouse. Rouse is getting a good one. Zemanick was the NPC’s Runner of the Year after a sensational season in the 800, mile and 4x800 relay. She is a three-time all-county and all-conference performer. The way she started the sport at Carson should be noted. She was a cheerleader as a freshman and decided she’d like to run. Instead of talking to track coach Les-Lee Efird, she wrote a letter.

“I don’t know if she was scared,” Efird smiled. “She was saying she could run a mile in 6 minutes, 30 seconds — and was that good?” It was more than good. “I had heard she could run a good mile,” Efird said. “We needed the numbers. I was really excited to have another girl coming out. I had no clue she’d turn out to be what she is.” Zemanick remembers the letter, too. “I wrote it real formal,” she chuckled. “I didn’t know how Efird was. But I realized she was like one of us.”

wanted me to be.” She loved living on the reservation. “It was such a blessing,” she says. “I loved those people.” Near the end of her time there, she was asked to write a letter to herself that would be sent to her at a later date. She thought it was kind of a strange request, but she did as asked. After her work in South Dakota was over, she returned to North Carolina and started her job as an occupational therapist in the Gaston County school system. She was working from 8 am.-3:30 p.m. — a lot fewer hours than she had worked in the summer — but found herself completely exhausted by the end of the day. She didn’t have her heart in what she was doing, she says, at least for the time being. She’d done some reading earlier about a missions program called The World Race, which takes young adult volunteers who feel compelled to abandon their regular lives and sends them around the world to share Christ. Volunteers go to 11 different countries over a period of 11 months.

Jenny hadn’t applied earlier, she says, because she didn’t want to feel like she was running away from her problems. The time just wasn’t right, she says. But she began thinking and praying about applying. Still unsure, she called the World Race headquarters to ask questions about “the heartbeat” of the ministry. She felt drawn to participate but wanted to make sure it wasn’t simply a travel opportunity or an extreme vacation. She wanted to be sure that that the work would be meaningful and that she would be able to give of herself. She found herself on the phone with a woman who had participated in the program. Jenny listened, enthralled, as the woman related her experiences, including working with the victims of sex trafficking in Asia. What really struck Jenny was that the missionaries not only reached out to the victims but the victimizers as well. “She had to be able to love people where they were, and share Christ with them,” Jenny says. “The Gospel is for

everybody, not just the victims but what you might call the villains. Christ didn’t pick and choose who he died for.” After learning more, Jenny felt herself open to the idea, but she needed to be sure, since the prospect of quitting her job and leaving her family for a year was scary. “I said, ‘God, if this is what you want me to do, you need to make it obvious.’” The next day, she received in the mail the letter she’d written to herself when she was in South Dakota. As she read the letter, she was reminded of how she’d felt when she was serving on the reservation — how vital and alive. This part of the letter was the clincher for her: “If you don’t feel that way now, you need to stop and do something else.” That was the sign she’d been looking for, she said. After that, she felt “completely at peace” about her decision to go. And now, the time is drawing close. Jenny will leave on


North Rowan Middle School students help needy family in Africa Thanks to the fundraising efforts of a group of North Rowan Middle School students, a needy family in Kenya, Africa now has a new home. The students are a part of a Christian club at their school called the YCI MAVS for Christ. Every public middle and high school campus in Rowan County has a Youth Commission International (YCI) club and they are among the nearly 100 active clubs on school campuses across the Charlotte region and beyond. Recently, Youth Commission International established its first club at Gethsemane Garden Christian Centre (GGCC), which is a school on Mfangano Island that serves many orphaned and impoverished children. Each YCI club is encouraged to do at least one service project per year. The YCI club at GGCC decided to go out into their community and build new huts for families in need. The students in the YCI MAVS for Christ club heard of the GGCC students’ ef-

bill Lineberger, Gethsemane Garden Christian Centre board chair; mr. Naphtaly mattah, GGCC executive director; mr. dennis Williams, Youth Commission international president and Ceo. forts and decided to help them. "This was our first attempt at a fundraiser since our club formed in 2007,” says Sandra Hache-Tejada, the teacher who sponsors the club at North Rowan Middle School.

Students “sold subscriptions to Sports Spectrum, which is much like Sports Illustrated except the magazine has articles and interviews of Christian athletes and their faith! ... We also received funds from the History

club.” By February of 2011, the students had raised all of the money needed. Their donation came just in time to help a pastor whose wife had drowned in a boating accident while he was away preaching. The villagers mocked the pastor and told him that this would not have happened if he had not gone away. After the new hut was built, the pastor said it was a testament to the villagers that “God takes care of His own.” On Thursday, May 19, the Director of the Gethsemane Garden Christian Centre in Kenya, Naphtaly Mattah, visited North Rowan Middle School to personally thank the students for their donation. The North Rowan Middle School YCI MAVS for Christ club also received the 2011 Club Award at the 10th Annual YCI Eagle Awards on Friday, May 13. It is a ceremony held by the organization to honor those involved in the ministry. Several other members from

Rowan County were recognized at the awards ceremony; their names are below. For more information about Youth Commission International, visit their website at and to learn more about Gethsemane Garden Christian Centre log onto

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS There’s less money this summer for hotel rooms, surfboards and bathing suits. It’s all going into the gas tank. High prices at the pump are putting a squeeze on the family budget as the traditional summer driving season begins. For every $10 the typical household earns before taxes, almost a full dollar now goes toward gas, a 40 percent bigger bite than normal. Households spent an average of $369 on gas last month. In April 2009, they spent just $201. Families now spend more filling up than they spend on cars, clothes or recreation. Last year, they spent less on gasoline than each of those things. Consumers spent more in April but much of the increase was eaten up by higher food and energy prices. After discounting for the jump in prices, spending barely budged and after-tax incomes were flat for a second straight month. Consumer spending rose 0.4 percent, reflecting a surge in the category that covers food and gasoline, areas which showed big price gains last month, the Commerce Department reported Friday. Excluding price changes, spending rose a much

smaller 0.1 percent. Incomes rose 0.4 percent but after-tax incomes adjusted for inflation were flat for a second straight month. Tornadoes and floods that have devastated parts of the South and Midwest have also hammered the local economies — flooding farmlands, suspending factory work and disrupting energy production. Yet for the U.S. economy overall, the damage will likely be scant. At most, the disasters might knock one-tenth of 1 percentage point off national economic growth in the April-June quarter, Wells Fargo economist Mark Vitner estimates. “It’s so small, you aren’t going to notice it,” added Patrick Newport, an economist at IHS Global Insight. The number of people who signed contracts to buy homes fell sharply in April, hitting its lowest point since fall and renewing fears that a recovery in the housing market is far off. An index of sales agreements for previously occupied homes sank 11.6 percent last month to a reading of 81.9, the National Association of Realtors said Friday. A reading of 100 would be considered healthy.

Saturday, May 28 GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Because you’ll make a special effort to treat all of your friends equally, chances are you’ll end up being the most popular person in your group. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Don’t deliberately seek out confrontations, but if you should be challenged, it’s not your nature to cut and run, and you’ll respond quite well. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — In your eagerness to get things done, you might have a tendency to stumble over your own clodhoppers. Subdue all impulsiveness, and everything will then look quite favorable for you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t make the mistake of relying more on the talent and abilities of others than you do your own resources. In reality, what others have to offer might have limitations. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You should strive to meet critical issues head-on instead of seeking ways to postpone them. Delays aren’t likely to improve matters, but they could create additional problems. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — If you’ve got a lot on your plate, try to plan an industrious agenda and strictly adhere to it. You’ll regret it later if you don’t use the hours that are available to you now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — No one knows better than you that all work and no play dulls life’s cutting edge. Try to break away from your customary routine and find some time for a fun involvement. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If you’ve been too busy to spend some quality time with the family lately, it might be the perfect day to do so. They’ll enjoy being with you as much as you’ll enjoy spending time with them. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — There is a good chance that you’re likely to be a bit more restless than usual. Correct this issue by allowing yourself some legroom mentally, physically and socially. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — It’s smart to treat all opportunities as if they might not be there tomorrow. Matters that have profitable possibilities should be relegated to the front burner. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Allocate a little time to spend on some matters that are important to you personally. If you don’t take care of them yourself, it isn’t likely that they will get done for some time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — You always get more accomplished when you can establish your own pace and work in an environment free from outside meddling. Try to find that kind of seclusion.

Carsickness linked to poor vision The communications work both ways which will help dissolve the clot, and an anticoagulant to prevent new ones from forming. But if you have a family history of clotting disorders, it may be beneficial for you to continue with the later medication for life; however, if the clot is from your knee-replacement surgery, you may be able to discontinue it safely a minimum of three months after the clot has dissolved. The staph bacteria were likely introduced into the body at the surgical site. Staph is fairly common and treatable, but it may slow the healing process. A culture of the site should reveal which antibiotic will best eliminate the infection. As for the pain, I cannot give you a clear answer. The clot may not be the only cause. You have had several complications from your knee replacement, which itself can cause pain post operatively for a time. I suggest that you make an appointment with your primary-care physician to discuss the situation and to express your concerns. You can even ask that he or she call your orthopedic surgeon so they can work together to help you recover quickly and safely. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including “Live Longer, Live Better,” “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Diet” and “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook,” which are available at most bookstores or online.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh, the wife of Charles Lindbergh and an aviator in her own right, claimed, “Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee and just as hard to sleep after.” In bridge, communication plays can be stimulating or infuriating, depending on whether you make the right play. In today’s deal, how should South play in four spades after West leads the heart three: eight, queen, ace? Did West have a better lead? How can North-South defeat five hearts, assuming declarer will guess the diamond suit correctly? South was right to raise to game when his partner invited, in particular because North’s two-club response had improved South’s hand. Should East make a takeout double over two clubs? On

this deal, yes. But given that his side is outgunned and he knows suits are breaking badly, it is probably an antipercentage action (and the vulnerability is unfavorable). In four spades, at trick two declarer plays a trump to dummy’s queen, seeing East discard. Now South must kill the opponents’ communications by leading a diamond. If instead declarer crosses to his hand with a club to lead a second spade, West can win with his ace, cash the heart king, play a diamond to his partner, and receive a club ruff (not that they would necessarily find that defense). To defeat four spades, West had to lead the heart king(!) or his singleton. To beat five hearts, the defenders must lead a diamond. Then South wins the first trump trick, leads a low club to his partner, and gains a diamond ruff — another tall order.

ter Gott, P.O. Box 433, Lakeville, CT 06039. Be sure to mention the title(s) or print an order form off my website’s direct link at—form.pdf. Dear Dr. Gott: I enjoy reading your column. I have a question for you. I had a total knee replacement in December 2010. I developed a staph infection in my knee, and the surgeon also found a blood clot in the calf of my leg. I have heard different remarks about the clot and how long it will affect me. I am still having pain in my calf, and it does not ease up. How long will the blood clot cause me pain in my leg? I have a hard time doing my therapy because of it. Dear Reader: Based on your brief note, I have more questions than I do answers. First, what medications are you taking? I am assuming that you’re on an anticoagulant to help prevent the clot from traveling or worsening, or others from forming; an antibiotic to combat the staph infection; and likely, a pain medication, either over-the-counter or prescription. Do you have any other health conditions? Are you male or female? What is your age and general health status? Without knowing the answer to these questions, giving you advice regarding a blood clot in your leg is difficult. For example, do the doctors believe the clot formed as a result of your knee replacement or was it there before your surgery? Do you have a family history of clotting disorders? You should likely be on a thombolytic medication,

Dear Dr. Gott: Some time ago, you printed a letter about a toddler who got carsick. Our son would get carsick starting in infancy until he was 5 years old, even on a local trip within a few miles. At age 5, it was discovered he had vision problems. When he began wearing his glasses, the issues ceased. I suggest the parents make an appointment with an ophthalmologist. It can’t hurt. Dear Reader: I continue to receive letters regarding carsickness and its various treatments. Remedies included ginger, acupressure, Sea-Bands, eating carbs prior to the car ride, having DR. PETER the car cool or wind blowing GOTT on the face, putting on quiet music and refraining from talking, looking at the horizon and not out the side windows and more. I am printing your letter because poor vision could certainly be a cause of motion sickness. If a child — or an adult, for that matter — isn’t seeing clearly, objects may become blurred, causing the brain to believe that the movement is faster than it is. Testing the vision is a simple, painless process.

An elongated trough of low pressure will bring more active weather to the Central US on Saturday. The system will continue tracking along the US and Canadian border, but will create a strong cold front that stretches southward, moving over the Mississippi River Valley. Expect widespread scattered rain showers to develop along this front, with thunderstorms popping up in the afternoon and evening hours. As this system pulls ample moisture in from the Gulf of Mexico, there is a slight risk that these storms will turn severe across the Midwest and Mid-Mississippi River Valley. Expect periods of heavy downpours, large hail, and damaging winds in areas of severe storm development. In the East, a few showers and thunderstorms may linger along the Eastern Seaboard. A slow moving low pressure system and associated frontal boundary will continue moving northeastward and away from the region. However, expect onshore flow to persist, thus producing a few more showers, especially in the Northeast. Out West, a low pressure system that pushed a cold front over the Pacific Northwest will kick up another round of widespread scattered showers on Saturday. A few of these showers will reach into northern California as this system moves southeastward into the Intermountain West and Great Basin by evening. The Northern and Central Rockies will remain under flood advisories due to the combination of these rain showers and seasonal snowmelt. In the South, expect another hot and dry day as high pressure dominates. Expect low humidity and strong surface winds to create favorable conditions for rapid fire growth and spread.

To advertise in this section, call 704-797-4241 Hot summer party trends and how to make them work for you (ARA) - That old saying “any excuse for a party” really applies to how many of us feel about summer. Warm weather, longer days and freedom from school commitments can give us the urge to celebrate for any reason, or none at all. Whether you plan to celebrate every summer holiday from Memorial Day through Labor Day, or will save up your celebrating for one big blow-out event, you’ll want your summer event to be one your guests remember - and discuss - when the snow starts flying come winter. From unique celebration trends to money- and time-saving measures, the party planning experts at the American Rental Association (ARA) member rental stores point to these two hot summer entertaining trends to keep in mind while you plan your summer soirees. Green is still “in” Our sense of responsibility to the environment is alive and thriving, even when we’re partying. Events that respect and pay homage to the environment and nature are in this year, and smart hosts are finding creative ways to green their parties. More hosts are replacing disposable tableware with the real thing.

Not only do real dishes and barware add a touch of class to a party, reusing items and reducing waste is more environmentally conscious. If you don’t have enough dishes and glasses for everyone - and don’t want to spend your day washing everything to keep up with the demand - consider renting what you need. It will cost less than buying the amount you require, will save you time on washing, and will still be more eco-friendly than using disposable items. In keeping with the earth-friendly trend, an outdoor event is perfect for summer. But since summer weather can be unpredictable, it may pay to rent a tent for your celebration. Tents not only help to block the rain but are also effective in providing relief from the sun. Finally, green up your decor. Take advantage of summer’s natural beauty by using plants and flowers to decorate buffet tables, seating areas and more. Potted plants make a great, colorful accent to tables and can do double duty as door prizes. And party planners report that the color green will be popular this year for party decor. You can incorporate the hue in table linens, bunting and even cuisine.

Fun with nostalgia Americans have had some tough economic times these past few years. And while fun is always the key ingredient for any great party, this summer, events will incorporate food and activities with a touch of nostalgia to remind guests of those carefree days of childhood summers. You can incorporate this trend into your menu selection. Instead of simply grilling up those dogs, why not rent an old-fashioned hot dog machine like the ones you might have seen at carnivals and in movie theaters in bygone days? Renting a popcorn machine and inviting guests to enjoy the freshly popped treat is another way to evoke fond memories with food.

Activities can also be a great way to spark nostalgia for guests. Toss a Slip and Slide on the lawn, or invite guests to partake of traditional party games like croquet. Keep the kids moving - and contained - by renting an inflatable bounce house. You can also find inflatables large enough to accommodate adults. Davis Farm

Don’t forget to add whimsy and nostalgia to decor. You can rent a number of items that will remind guests of fun times, from disco-themed lights to bubble machines. Just remember to plan ahead and give your local ARA rental store plenty of notice so you can be sure to get everything you need for your party. You’ll find more information at
