Construction span shapes up I-85 bridges will soon rise beside Yadkin crossing

Robertson grant funds technology for schools More students to be equipped with iPods, laptops


SALISBURY — The new I-85 Yadkin River Bridge should start to take shape in just a couple of weeks as construction continues on schedule. “We had some issues with drilling, but we’re picking back up now,” said Jim Barton, construction manager with contractor Flatiron-Lane, at the project site Wednesday. Crews have been building the two spans of the bridge from a temporary work bridge constructed between them. They use heavy machinery to drill shafts deep into the ground, remove the soil and water and fill the shafts with rebar and concrete. On top of the shafts rest slightly smaller columns, which are connected above in rows of four by concrete caps. Barton said in the second week of June, the workers will start to set the long girders that support the roadway, “and at that point, it will start looking like something.” Construction slows down, though, when the drills hit hard rock. A large tool made of several pneumatic hammers is then used to pulverize the rock, break through and continue drilling. Darin Waller, resident engineer with the N.C. Department of Transportation, said the depth of the shafts depends on the type of soil workers run into. “A lot of this is pretty much being designed as we go,” Waller said. “We have an initial design, and if we encounter something different, the designers get involved.” Tim Canup, assistant resident engineer with the transportation department, said there are now close to 150 people working onsite, not counting the offsite designers. About 20 subcontractors are working different aspects of the project, he said, from earth moving to railroad crossings to signage. Some are using eight towering cranes to get the job done. Six of those cranes rest on the nearlycompleted temporary work bridge. They must move along a


SALISBURY — More students in the Rowan-Salisbury School System will have access to technology this fall thanks to grants from the Blanche and Julian Robertson Family Foundation. Overton Elementary School has received $55,000 to purchase iPods and laptops for its Overtonville PASSPORT program. PASSPORT stands for Preparing All Students for Success by Participating in an Ongoing Realworld simulation using Technology. Koontz Elementary has received $59,000, which Principal Rick Dunlap says will be used to install a second computer lab. • • • Anthony Johnson, the Overton’s technology facilitator, created the PASSPORT program while working as a classroom teacher at Isenberg Elementary about eight years ago. He started the program with fifth-graders when he moved to Overton.

5 The future path of the new bridges over Interstate 85 has been cleared on both sides of the Yadkin River.


Several cranes are working on the temporary bridge that will be used to build support shafts for the crossing.4

SALISBURY — Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, was initially a way to honor those who died following the Civil War. It is now celebrated to remember all who’ve died in military service. This Memorial Day the Salisbury Post asked people in the community what significance this day holds for them and if they will spend it with family: Beverly McCraw “I’ll spend time with rel- MCCRAW atives,” McCraw said. Her 16-year-old son is in ROTC and he’ll


Piedmont Passages: A quaker who wouldn’t become a soldier Editor’s note: George Raynor was managing editor of the Salisbury Post for 30 years and editor for eight years before retiring in 1982. This essay appeared in the Post on April 14, 1985. hile the role of Quakers as conscientious objectors has been for the most part accepted in wars involving Americans, this is not the same as being respected. Often being accused of being traitors and reviled as cowards, Quakers cling to their uneasy roles in a warring world to this day. Louis A. Brown, the GEORGE Statesville historian RAYNOR and author of the authoratative study of the Salisbury prison camp (1861-1865), has continued to unearth material


[|xbIAHD y0 0 1rzu

about the prison since the publication of his study in 1980. Included among the new material is some that sheds more light on the martyr-like role of the Quaker. In his history Brown has a short reference to the mistreatment of Solomon Frazier, a Randolph County Quaker. The reference is from a letter that David O. McRaven, one of the guards, wrote to his wife Amanda. In the letter McRaven describes the mistreatment. “Our men often act like heathern the officers of Masses Batallion have an old fellow that calls himself a Quaker in tow they have been working with him this is the third Day, he will not carry a gun they have Strapped a Musket on his shoulder and tied a rope around his neck and three men take him by turns and Drag him around in a ring at the trot. I think they will Drag the life out of the Old Scoundril before Long but they will not make a soldier out of him.”

Brown thought that this would be the end of material about Solomon Frazier, but happily he was wrong, thanks to the collecting interests of Houston Ballard of Cleveland. Hearing that Brown’s history would soon be published, Ballard, a stamp and cover collector, remembered that some letters from the prison would be sold. He went to Washington, D.C., for the auction and bought some. One happened to be from the same Solomon Frazier to Brother Hinson (a spiritual brother no doubt) and tells of the incident related by McRaven and other relevant facts. The letter follows: “Brother Hinson the (they) have punished me severely and this morning the sent me to Lawyer Blackburn to see if he (could) clear me but he Could not do anything for me unless I had paid the five hundred.

Want to get fit? It’s your responsibility Q. I don’t really like to exercise, I keep hearing about how I need to exercise. How can I get motivated? A. I wish I could sell motivation in a bottle. Everyone would buy it. Someone joined the Y and asked if they would lose weight since they joined. I replied that we will give you the tools and support for you to get healthier and possibly lose weight, but you are the one who has to do it. You can join, or buy any ESTER equipment to exercise, MARSH but if you don’t follow through, nothing is going to happen. What surprises me each time is that most people have no problem taking pills or shots for this and that (especially weight loss), but when a doctor tells them to exercise so they don’t have to take the pills or can get away with a lesser dose, any excuse will come up. To lead a healthy lifestyle, you have to make choices. What do you want out of life? Do you want to be able to do more things, move better, feel better or are you satisfied with immobility, being overweight and performing routine tasks? Most people I talk to want to lose weight. They want to be able to move better. They want to have more energy, be able to do things. Well, guess what? It takes work and dedication. I have told you before that I was in shock when I did a survey how many people who exercise regularly answered that they did not like to exercise. Most of our regular members do it because it makes them feel better, look better, give them more energy,

Johnson said he was ecstatic to find out Overton’s grant request had been approved. “I appreciate the Robertson Family Foundation 200 percent,” he said. “I”m happy because I know this technology is going to make a difference.” ••• Koontz Elementary is hoping to have its new computer lab up and running by fall. Dunlap said he’s already found a space near the media center to house the lab, which will be equipped with 30 computers. Though the school already has one operational computer lab, Dunlap said more computers will be needed as the state transitions to online assessments. Dunlap said students will also be able to use the lab for research projects and classroom engagement. He said he was thrilled to find out the Roberton Family Foundation would be giving the school $59,000. “Anytime we can get grants to do things such as this it’s always a big positive for the students, especially with the way the budget is going.”


and lots of times gives them the ability to do the things they thought they could not do anymore. Some take water exercise classes, walk and/or take a land group exercise class. These people have made the choice, and constantly are making the choice to do what is best for their body no matter what health issues come their way. There are so many more people who come to the YMCA because they want to feel better, move better and be healthy. My hat is off to all of you. In today’s times of economic instability, with health care costs through the roof, you can make the choice to live healthier by exercising and eating better. I spoke to a young man who said that his mom spends over $500 a month on medication. Exercise has proven to be beneficial to your health. Lots of people can lower, or even cut certain medications when they start exercising regularly and eating sensibly. And with a proper diet and determination the weight loss will follow. Before you start an exercise program check with your doctor first if you have health challenges. Start slow and easy, try different things. Try the water exercise classes if you have joint problems. Try chair yoga, body-movement class or a lowimpact class such as Body Vive. When you try and stay focused, you will find what works for you but you are the one who has to make that choice. You are the one who has to take the initiative. I am proud, and I want to encourage everyone who is trying to better their lifestyle. I know it is hard and impossible at times, but the choice is yours. Ester Marsh, ACSM Cpt

Johnson said the program allows students to become businesspeople by opening up their own stores, buying goods from suppliers and paying bills such as rent and utilities. Students learn how to manage money and be responsible with their resources, Johnson said. “They take this and run with it, they kids really learn how to be problem solvers,” he said. When Johnson first launched the program at Isenberg, he was using shoe boxes and paper money for the simulation, now iPods helps students keep track of spending and planning. “The makeshift stuff was good, but this takes it to a whole different level,” he said. The grant from the Robertson Family Foundation will extend the program to third-graders. Johnson said the iPods will also be used for everyday classroom instruction. “When you give (students) an iPods, they can learn anytime, anywhere,” he said. “That’s what it’s all Contact reporter Sarah about, instant information.

Donald was shot once, but the blast from the shot gun hit both calves. “He is in good condition,” Baldo said. The hospital is not being named to further protect the victim. There is a possibility that this shooting and the stabbing that occurred in East Spencer, where Deshawn Outlaw, 22, was stabbed in the upper right chest at a Grant Street apartment, are related, Baldo said. He said though the two incidents are separate they are linked by the same person of interest. He did not provide details on the person of interest, but did say the victims in both incidents are not talking to law enforcement. “The person of interest has prior ties to gang and drug activity,” Baldo said. He said he talked to Donald who didn’t know much about the stabbing incident involving Outlaw. “It’s more coincidental,” Baldo said. A shotgun shell was located at the scene of the shooting but the weapon has not been found. Contact reporter Shavonne Potts at 704-797-4253.

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s Medicaid program, second only to public schools in state spending, could be offering fewer services to save money before a wave of new consumers expected to enroll soon because of the federal health care overhaul. Republicans in charge of the General Assembly are considering eliminating several medical services the federal government doesn’t require the state to cover for adults through Medicaid, the government’s health insurance program for low-income families, people with disabilities and poor elderly residents. It’s part of a method to cut state spending in the agency that operates Medicaid by more than $350 million for the year starting July 1 and $400 million the following year, to about $2.9 billion annually. The Senate budget proposal rolled out last week would eliminate coverage for adult Medicaid enrollees who receive some over-the-counter drugs such as nicotine gum for smokers trying to quit and insulin for diabetics. Adult routine eye exams wouldn’t be covered, as well as intravenous medications such as chemotherapy for home-bound patients. By next year, the state program for Medicaid could eliminate essentially all routine dental coverage for adults, as well as most podiatry and chiropractic services. More eliminations could be ahead if other savings targets aren’t met. Republicans argue the state has little choice in order to close a $2.5 billion budget gap. Federal stimulus money that helped pay more for Medicaid than usual is running out. GOP lawmakers also have promised to let temporary taxes expire as scheduled this year, and Medicaid spending projections are tricky. “This is what’s coming down the pike if we can’t get the kind of savings that we want from Medicaid,” said Sen. Pete Brunstetter, R-Forsyth, co-chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. “We really don’t have a great desire to go there. It’s just that these are big numbers.” North Carolina could see an additional 525,000 enrollees in Medicaid in 2014, according to the Division of Medical Assistance, which operates Medi-


North Rowan grad becomes a world citizen RANITE QUARRY — Pete Crowther’s expansive formal education lies in the research and development side of biomechanics, from institutions such as Wake Forest and Texas Christian universities. But over the past decade, Crowther has earned a working degree in world travel. As an information MARK management speWINEKA cialist for the U.S. State Department, Crowther and his family have lived during two-


and three-year assignments in Trinidad, Russia, Argentina and now Australia. “When you sign up, you have to agree to worldwide service,” Crowther said during a recent visit with his mother, Louise, in Granite Quarry. “I really haven’t regretted it at all. It has been great.” Though he’s not a diplomat, Crowther sort of lives a diplomat’s life. At each stop, he has worked out of the U.S. embassy, making sure all the communications systems — from computers to telephones — are up and running. Needing computer support help in other places, the State Department sometimes sends him on short visits away from his home

base at the embassy. In Australia, for example, he travels from the capital in Canberra to cities such as Perth, Sydney and Melbourne. He also will be sent to Cambodia in July. The job has its perks. While the salary might be less than what he could earn in the private sector, the State Department pays for the lodging and utilities in each country and makes the arrangements so transitions from country to country are pretty seamless. Crowther says he and his family — wife Kendra, 12-year-old Sean and 10-year-old Sydney — have arrived in new places with their car


Lessons from the Bare Bones 5K n Saturday, we had the 10th Annual Bare Bones 5K at Knox Middle School. I’m talking about this race in my column because there is something really special about the event. Ten years ago, the race started as a low-key way to thank other runners in our area for participating in Salisbury Rowan Runners events throughout the year. In that first year, DAVID there was a FREEZE cheap cotton T-shirt, economy medals for the winners, and a course around Catawba College’s soccer and football practice fields. There was water and bananas, and not much else for food afterwards. The event didn’t make money, though it was not meant to. No outside sponsors were solicited, but good friends like Cheerwine and Athlete’s Foot (now Sportrax) chipped in with food and race numbers, and Catawba provided the location. The shirt signified the low cost, bare bones approach with a skeleton logo. More than 40 runners attended. Charlotte runner, Bobby Aswell, reminded me how much things have changed on Saturday. Aswell and his daughter, Nicole, came to Salisbury to run the 5K, though there were other choices in the area. Aswell is an accomplished runner, having run more than 150 marathons. He is 48 years old and his daughter is 9. The Aswells finished first in their age groups. On Saturday, the Bare Bones skeleton logo was still in place, but it was on a high-tech, dri-fit shirt. There are still no monetary sponsors, but the race friends include Cheerwine, Sportrax, and Knox Middle School where the race is now held. Most of the race is run on the Salisbury Greenway, in Eagle Heights, and near Knox. Used running shoes are collected for Rowan Helping Ministries, and through intense fiscal management the race makes some money. Relay for Life with an emphasis on Breast Cancer Awareness was the recipient of all proceeds this year, and that contribution is significant. Additionally, 40 new runners had just completed two Beginning Runners Classes, one in Salisbury through Parks and Rec and another in Landis at First Reformed Church. As a part of their program, each of these runners got to run


WORLD FroM 3A already in the driveway and groceries in the refrigerator. The State Department also provides for cost-of-living increases in salary, if necessary. The cost-of-living adjustment in Moscow was 40 percent, for example. The accommodations vary greatly, depending on the country. The family’s quarters in Moscow were part of a complex — a pretty standard three-bedroom apartment whose cost, nonetheless, was exorbitant. In Argentina, the family lived in a four-story house with a swimming pool that was just down the street from the president’s mansion. For the first time in Australia, Sean and Sydney are attending a local school, not one set up primarily for visiting Americans and other English-speaking students. As part of their school uniform, they must wear hats to shield them from the Australian sun. They take U.S. history every Friday at the embassy. The family has lived in Port of Spain, Trinidad, for two years, Moscow for two years and Buenos Aires, Argentina, for three years be-

Knox Middle School provides a headquarters location that includes a race finish on their track. The Salisbury Post helps publicize the event. The Salisbury Police and Fire Departments provide course support. A halfmile fun run for children under 12 is run completely on the track, so spectators can see the whole event. This year, there were spectators at several points along the course, including the start and the finish. Special significance for the 2011 Bare Bones 5K centered around two key points. Great management is the key to success, and Race Director David Abernathy has become legendary in his ability to provide leadership in races. In fact, he is currently Southeast Regional Race Director of the Year, and is being considered for the same position nationally. Abernathy is also treasurer and membership director of the Salisbury Rowan Runners. Another key point is that most races don’t succeed for very long. Most never get going, because organizers think a 5K is easy to do. A long list of requirements must be in place before the event will be possible for the first year. Not a week goes by that I don’t hear form two to three organizations wanting to

fore moving to Canberra, Australia, in September 2010. “They’ve all had their pluses and minuses,” Crowther says, though he thinks his children have benefited greatly from becoming, in a way, world citizens. “They’re learning all these different cultures.” Sean has become fluent in three languages. On vacations, the family has traveled to places such as Egypt, South Africa and Kenya. Another side benefit is that family often comes to visit them in these faraway places. Louise and her late husband, Milton, once a research chemist for National Starch, were able to travel to Trinidad and Russia during their son’s assignments there. “He was a wonderful person,” Louise says of Milton, who died in 2009, “and he encouraged his children to get out in the world.” Pete Crowther, 46, graduated as valedictorian of North Rowan High School’s Class of 1983. He then majored in health and sports science at Wake Forest, earned his master’s in biomechanics at TCU and was going for his doctorate before that career path began losing its appeal. Always interested in computers, Crowther took a job with a computer support company in Dallas, liked it

Most give it up when they see how much work and how many volunteers are needed, along with finding sponsors and undertaking long-term planning. In my opinion, it is a good thing that they do. Adam Cornelius was the overall winner with a time of 18 minutes and 6 seconds, and Alana Levie won for the women in 19 minutes flat. Rockwell resident Cornelius thought he had a good chance to win, and took the lead after the midway point. He was surprised that there was such a large turnout.

“I loved the course, with just one hill it was very fast,” Cornelius said. Coby, Scott, and Bill Weant all ran, spanning three generations. It was the first running race for all of them. “We all loved the race and we’ll be doing a lot more of these,” Scott Weant said. The 2011 Bare Bones 5K was started by Bob Zirt 10 years ago, for all the right reasons. Today, David Abernathy manages an extremely successful event. More than 220 registrants signed up for the two races, a record in itself. Relay for Life wins, and so does the community.

and moved on to positions with EDS and Microsoft. “There was so much opportunity to move up,” he says. But when things began tapering off and Crowther saw he was only making lateral moves, he started looking for other career opportunities. At a job fair in Dallas, he walked up to the only booth without a line — the Foreign Service branch of the U.S. State Department. Crowther enjoyed travel. He backpacked through Europe in his younger days and had gone to China and Thailand with some school friends. Not knowing what would come of it, he applied to the State Department for a computer support position. It took a year before he was called to Washington in August 2002 for an interview. After he passed written and oral tests, the State Department placed him in its next class. By February 2003, he was on his first assignment to Trinidad, having survived all the background checks. During his foreign service, Crowther says his wife has had the tougher job, trying to adapt their family to each new country. She grew up as a missionary’s daughter, spending many years in West Africa. While she was used to living in foreign lands, she was never used to the diplomatic-like lifestyle that came

with Crowther’s State Department job. “She has fit in well,”‘ Crowther says. “She has had to deal with the changes of foreign life more than I have.” The job also has allowed the Crowther family to meet some important people, such as both the Bush presidents, plenty of congressmen and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Crowther knows he’ll be assigned to Australia until September 2013, but his next world stop has yet to be decided. As he gains tenure, he is able to bid on the openings presented to him by the State Department. In between assignments, State Department employees are given a two-month break. For some of those days, the Crowthers must stay in Washington while Pete sits in on more training. Otherwise, they spend time with family in North Carolina, Kansas and Texas, Pete and his brother Joe, a Lutheran minister in Kansas, took time to hike Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. At the top, Pete spread some of the ashes of his father, Milton, the man who had always encouraged him to get out in the world. Contact Mark Wineka at 704-797-4263, or mwineka@

Sorority presents health in Concord


If folks say that Americans verge on health addiction, they are likely telling you the truth. As part of a national health initiative, the Lambda Upsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority presented its annual Health Fair on May 21 at Carolina Mall in Concord. Participating vendors


from the local area represented a variety of healthrelated areas, including Health Alliance CMC, American Red Cross, Cabarrus County Senior Center, New York Life Insurance Company; Oracle, LLC and Duke Medicine to name a few. Visitors had a wide variety of displays and health-promoting activ-

ities to explore. A number of the on-lookers had no idea that resources existed in Cabarrus County such as support groups and counseling for caregivers, resources and special programs for the elderly, respite care, dental specialists for children and a number of other services and products.

Planning board to discuss city’s open space The Open Space Study would help preserve and protect environmentally sensitive lands and lead to development of public recreational areas, enhancing the quality of life for residents. Potential objectives of the study include: • Identify and inventory flood hazard areas and critical environmental lands • Identify and describe methods of preserving, protecting and improving open space resources. • Increase awareness, encourage voluntary actions and resident involvement. The meeting Tuesday is open to the public. Contact reporter Emily Ford at 704-7974264.

expenses come from optional services, according to the Division of Medical Assistance. But more than 12 percent of those optional expenses go to low-income children that can’t be eliminated under federal law. Twenty states, including North Carolina, either eliminated optional coverage or tightened restrictions on covered benefits during 2010, the Kaiser Commission said. Ending optional services is becoming a more common method because the federal health care reform and stimulus laws prevent states from tightening Medicaid eligibility requirements for the near future, said Matthew Mitchell, a research fellow on state and local policy at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University in Virginia. Brunstetter said he understands it’s hard to persuade people who can’t afford coverage that their treatments may not be allowed any longer: “The optional services have been added over the years because somebody somewhere along the line did think that they were essential to health care.”




SALISBURY — A committee of the Salisbury Planning Board is studying the city’s open space and will meet at 3 p.m. Tuesday in the second floor conference room at City Hall. The group will refine a list of draft goals and objectives for the Planning Board Open Space Study. The study looks at recreational open space as well as environmentally sensitive open areas. The committee is working to develop tools and methods for developing high-quality recreational open space, while preserving and protecting the environmentally-sensitive areas of Salisbury. Members will consider a possible goal of completing an inventory of open space in the city, with help from residents.

caid. The 2010 federal health care law requires the state to cover more uninsured adults. The federal government will pay for nearly all the coverage of the new enrollees, but North Carolina may have to pay more than $1 billion for them by 2019, according to the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured. Democratic lawmakers and health advocates say eliminating so many services could make people sicker or require more expensive coverage in services the state is obligated to cover, such as hospitals and nursing homes. They say cuts can be found elsewhere or avoided with additional tax revenues. “Society I think is judged on what it does for the least of us, and I just think that we as North Carolinians can do better than this,” said Sen. Doug Berger, D-Franklin. “It’s morally unconscionable.” Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue’s budget proposal sought $16.5 million in savings, too, by modifying services for Medicaid, which cov-

ers 1.4 million people in North Carolina. Her plan initially didn’t provide many details about how she’d do it except that unidentified optional services would be eliminated if the savings target wasn’t met. The House budget approved earlier this month disclosed more details on how to reach $16.5 million that included the eye care elimination. The Senate went further, proposing the elimination and adjustment of optional services to save another $3.3 million in the coming year and $51.5 million in 2012-13. A decision on just how many optional services would be eliminated is expected soon as House and Senate negotiators work out a final budget agreement to send to Perdue. Lanier Cansler, the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, said he’s concerned halting some services will actually lead to greater expenses because “you’re more likely to see someone not get the care they need, or they’re going to go to a more expensive level of care.” Forty-five percent of the state’s $10 billion in Medicaid

Burn survivors see camp as a balm RALEIGH (AP) — Yoga instructor Blake Tedder knows how difficult it is for children with burn injuries to face the world. Tedder was 17 when he lost 35 percent of his skin in a plane crash in 2001. Tedder was not prepared for the stares and comments after he regained health. Because of his burns, not only did his face stay cardinal red for a long time, he had to wear a pantyhose-like garment on his arms. “I felt I looked like a mummy,” said Tedder, now 26. The idea of not being able to play guitar or catch the eye of a woman again was devastating, he said. But at Camp Celebrate, a weekend retreat for children with burn injuries organized by the N.C. Jaycee Burn Center, he started to rebuild his confidence. “It just felt good to be around those who met me before they met my burns,” Tedder said. Tedder returns to the camp this

weekend as a counselor. The camp began Friday when firefighters from around the state met 50 campers at Triangle Town Center and took them to the camp site outside Wake Forest in a convoy of fire engines, sirens blaring. The children, between ages 7 and 15, will spend the weekend fishing, canoeing and swimming with kids who know what they’ve been through. “Camp Celebrate is a celebration of human spirit and collaboration,” said Bruce Cairns, director at the N.C. Jaycee Burn Center at UNC Hospitals. The love from the volunteers, firefighters, and staff at the burn center keeps the camp going year after year, Cairns said. Deb Rosenstein, a therapist at the burn center, started the camp in 1982 because other camps hesitated to accept children who were burn survivors. A year shy of its 30th anniversary, Camp Celebrate has evolved into an after-care pro-

gram, offering a wide array of services to burn survivors of different ages. Over the years many camp alumni, like Tedder, have returned. The camp is a redemptive experience for many of its participants, said Anita Fields, manager at the burn center’s after-care program. She remembered one 14-year-old boy who vowed never to wear shorts or swim again. At the camp he saw children jump into the water, children who had been through the same trauma and undergone just as many — if not more — surgeries. By the end of the camp he wouldn’t leave the water — and he even climbed an alpine tower, Fields said. As a counselor, Tedder encourages the children to be themselves, despite the scars and disfigurement. “It’s my favorite weekend of the year,” Tedder said. Now he hosts a radio show, plays drums and, yes,

goes on dates. It’s Jon Hayes’ fourth year at Camp Celebrate. The watermelon eating contest is one of the activities that draw him back. Jon, 10, had second- and third-degree burns on his chest and left arm from when he tried to retrieve a soccer ball from a grill. He said his goal is to be a camp counselor one day. His parents, Johnny and Debbie of Ocean Isle Beach, stood in the mall parking lot to see Jon climb into a fire engine. They said they know how much he misses seeing his friends at the camp and telling each other ghost stories. “It’s the ultimate camp experience,” Debbie Hayes said. The Camp Celebrate experience has given Terrell Watkins a lifelong passion for serving children with special needs. Watkins was 13 when he threw a lit match into a can filled with gasoline, thinking he was building the greatest camp-

fire in the world. The explosion engulfed him and burned 75 percent of his skin. Watkins survived, but the flames left deep scars all over his face, arms and legs, and destroyed his ear cartilage. The staff at the burn center invited him to the camp, where he met other children who also had scars all over their bodies. Now 34, Watkins has been a camp counselor since 1996. He played wide receiver for WinstonSalem State University and is now a special education teacher at Cliffdale Elementary School in Fayetteville. Because of his camp experience, he wants to return to school to become a licensed clinical counselor. “This is what I tell the kids, ‘You’re going to get looks, but you need to be comfortable in your own skin.’” And it doesn’t matter whether your skin has scars or not.

Former waitress knocked out of job by illness INSTON-SALEM (AP) — Pam Lillard was trading zingers recently with Frank Benedetti and Gary Trowbridge at Winston-Salem’s West End Cafe. But this time, Lillard was sitting in a booth with them and eating lunch, her waitress pad and pen nowhere in sight. The longtime waitress, a frequent winner of various “favorite server” contests in Winston-Salem, may have served her last bowl of chili. In March, Lillard, 55, learned she had cervical spinal stenosis, a degenerative bone disease that causes a narrowing of the spinal canal. After suffering from dizziness and falls for more than a year, Lillard blacked out one evening in March and woke up paralyzed from the neck down. She underwent surgery to relieve pressure on her spine, which restored feeling throughout most of her body. However, Lillard still has some lingering paralysis in her fingers, arms and legs. Doctors have told her that her waitressing days are


probably over, a devastating prediction given the affection she feels toward her coworkers and regulars such as Benedetti and Trowbridge. “It wasn’t just a job,” Lillard said. “You celebrated your customers’ births, their marriages. I miss it so bad.” When customers learned about her illness, they flooded Lillard with cards and messages on her Facebook page. Co-workers visited frequently during her weeklong hospital stay. “I never realized how much I was loved until this,” she said. Her co-workers recently held a benefit for Lillard at The Garage that included food and live music. Money raised will help Lillard cover thousands of dollars in medical bills. Lillard, who has no health insurance, is waiting to hear what costs Medicaid will cover. Beloved for her positive attitude and good cheer, Lillard was known to send grumpy customers out the door and ask them to re-enter in a better frame of mind.

“She’s very mothering,” said David Martin, one of the restaurant’s owners. “We always joked that the feet of toddlers never touched the ground when Pam was around.” Lillard has worked at the restaurant for 14 years, usually up to 30 hours a week. She became so popular that customers began to ask Martin whether she could be their waitress. “When she couldn’t be there, she’d send us an email to let us know and, when we couldn’t be there, we’d send her an email,” Benedetti said. “She has a following. “People think she is the greatest waitress in the world.” Lillard hopes to one day work as a cashier at the restaurant. She has returned a few times but has trouble sitting for any length of time. A parade of well-wishers greets her when she does show up. “There’s a void,” Martin said. “People ask about her every day. And I know there’s a void in her life because she loved what she did.”

70 arrested, 1 killed in disturbance in Charlotte CHARLOTTE (AP) — Authorities say a fatal shooting along with fights and people blocking traffic led Charlotte police to call out its civil emergency unit. Police said more than 70 people were arrested early Sunday morning in the disturbances in the city’s Uptown. Investigators said the trouble started around 1 a.m. when someone fired a gun as two large groups argued. One person was shot in the head and killed. A second was shot in the leg, but is expected to recover. Police say officers noticed many of the people involved in the disturbance were flashing gang signs. Most of the 70 people arrested were charged with disorderly conduct, fighting, assault or impeding traffic.

Coach charged with punching NC youth umpire FLETCHER (AP) — Fletcher police have charged an assistant baseball coach with assault after he struck a 16-year-old umpire, but the coach of the team says the umpire threw the first blow. Police told the Asheville-Citizen

Times that 37-year-old Samuel Cody was arrested after the fight Saturday. Investigators say Cody was arguing with another umpire with the teen stepped between them and was punched. Authorities say fans then got involved, creating a larger fight. No serious injuries were reported. But head coach Charlie Wells says parents of his players told him that his assistant was hit in the face by the other umpire, and only struck the teen after he jumped on Cody’s back. Wells didn’t see the incident because he had already been ejected from the game involving 11- and 12-year-old boys.

Charlotte church fined $4,000 for tree trimming CHARLOTTE (AP) — A Charlotte church has been fined $4,000 for excessively trimming its crape myrtles and running afoul of the city’s three decades old tree ordinance. The Charlotte Observer reports the city’s tree law prohibits removing or excessively trimming trees on commercial property or streets. It does not include private residences.

Greensboro hedge-fund boss wants $1M for lawyers GREENSBORO (AP) — A Greensboro hedge-fund manager is asking a judge to let him take $1 million out of two offshore accounts to help pay for legal help as he fights a lawsuit from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The News & Record of Greensboro reports that a receiver assigned to recover as much money as possible for Stan Kowalewski’s clients says the move would cause Kowalewski’s investors to lose even more money. Kowalewski’s SJK Investment Management company is the subject of an SEC civil lawsuit claiming he improperly diverted more than $16 million from his investors. Government lawyers claim Kowalewski used that money to make purchases for himself including a $3.9 million beach house in Pawleys Island, S.C.

Woman’s blood-covered body found at home RALEIGH (AP) — Raleigh police are investigating after a woman was found dead in her home by her neighbor. Investigators said the neighbor called 911 after seeing the woman covered in blood as he looked through a window Saturday morning. Authorities are releasing little information about 34-year-old Alison Deborah Jurich’s death, including how she died or whether they think she was killed by someone else. Police closed the residential road in front of Jurich’s north Raleigh home for most of Saturday, only allowing people who lived nearby through barricades.

Planning to fly? Gas prices cause fares to soar NEW YORK (AP) — To fly someone from New York to Los Angeles and back, airlines spend close to $330 these days — just on fuel. That’s a 48 percent increase from last year and the main reason vacationers face record costs to fly this summer. To offset their single biggest expense, airlines have hiked fares seven times this year and raised fees for checking bags and other services. This has only added to the frustration of most casual fliers who see $59 fares advertised but are quoted prices well above $300 when they ac-

tually try to book. Americans’ expectations of a cheap vacation are being destroyed by the reality of $100-a-barrel oil. “The passenger has to understand that the airline industry in the United States is not meant to be a low-cost mass transit system. The airlines are in business to be profitable,� says airline analyst Robert Herbst. A decade ago, fuel accounted for about 15 percent of airline operating expenses. Five years ago, it was 29 percent. Today, it’s 35 percent. During the first three

months of 2011, the airlines spent $8.7 billion on fuel, 31 percent more than last year. In the current quarter, jet fuel expenses are even higher. U.S. airlines burn an average of 22 gallons of fuel for every 1,000 miles each passenger flies. At $3.03 a gallon, airlines are currently spending $330 per passenger just on fuel for a 4,950-mile transcontinental round-trip. Some fliers might have paid less than that for their ticket while others could have spent more than $2,000. The industry’s remaining

expenses break down this way: • Salaries and benefits account for 28 percent. Ten years ago, it was the biggest expense at 39 percent. But several major airlines filed for bankruptcy and that allowed them to renegotiate labor contracts. • Aircraft maintenance, airport landing fees and travel agency commissions account for 18 percent. • Aircraft lease payments, food and drinks and in-flight entertainment account for 5 percent. And that’s even with most airlines no longer serving peanuts.

SC nuclear plant becoming 1st in US to go digital SENECA, S.C. (AP) — The digital revolution is finally reaching America’s nuclear power plants. Sometime in the next few weeks, technicians will finish installing digital controls for the operating and safety systems of a nuclear plant reactor in western South Carolina, a move being closely watched by other nuclear complexes. In a nation where a digital blender can be bought for about $30 at Walmart, the Oconee Nuclear Station reactor will be the first of the 104 reactors in the United States not controlled with the same analog technology that brought the world cassette tapes and slide rules. It has taken nuclear power plants so long to go digital because regulators wanted assurances the new control systems were as reliable as the old ones and could not be compromised by hackers. “The systems in the plants right now, they are doing an excellent job. The plants are very safe — they’ve been doing their jobs for years,� said Joe Naser, technical executive with the Electric Power Research Institute. The goal of going digital is to save money. Most systems in a nuclear power plant are monitors with four sensors.


N AT I O N / C O N T I N U E D

If two of them have out-ofwhack readings, engineers often have to “trip� the plant, or shut it down, until the problem is resolved. If a nuclear plant sits idle for a day, it can cost a utility company more than $2 million. That isn’t spare change, even for a company like North Carolinabased plant operator Duke Energy, which earned $1.3 billion in 2010. Unlike a human engineer, who can only take in one measurement at a time from one instrument, the digital system takes in thousands of readings at any moment. The computer can instantly figure out if a sensor is broken and ignore it. “Those utilities need to keep those plants running. To have unplanned outages as a result of an analog system isn’t doing what we need it to do — that’s a financial risk,� said Jere Jenkins, director of Radiation Labs at Purdue University. While digital control of nuclear plants is widespread in Europe and Asia, the U.S. has been on the sidelines as the digital revolution has brought Americans iPods for their music, movies that stream to their cell phones over the Internet and tiny computers connected to satellites to help them find the store that sells

those things. The nuclear plant digital systems will provide operators with much more data about plant operations and a level of precision impossible with an analog system, which often requires the movement of components to get things done. Other utilities are closely watching. The youngest nuclear plant in the U.S. went online with analog controls in 1996, the same year DVDs were introduced in Japan. More than half of the nation’s nuclear power plants are at least 30 years old, and only three have come on since 1990. Other nuclear power plants will likely follow Oconee’s lead as soon as they can afford it if the conversion goes well, said David Lochbaum, director of the Nuclear Safety Project for the Union of Concerned Scientists. Also, Duke Energy said it made sure its engineers can manually take over all digital processes in case there are any problems. One of the biggest concerns of regulators was worries the software used to run the new controls might be hacked from outside the plant. Documents given to the Nuclear Regulatory Commis-

sion show Duke Energy’s software provider designed a system with no external network connections. Any communication between the reactor operators and the system is heavily restricted and must be authorized by plant operators. The new control system at Reactor 1 is part of $2 billion in upgrades that Duke Energy is making to keep its three reactors at the station, which opened in the early 1970s, run safely for the next 30 years. The control panel installation coincides with a planned refueling outage. Reactor 2 will get its new digital panel during next year’s refueling, and an upgrade at Reactor 3 is scheduled for 2013. The new panels alone for all three reactors cost $250 million. Oconee Nuclear Station’s reactor operators have spent months training on an exact replica of what the new control panel will look like. And it looks a lot like the old system. “One of the goals is to make operators’ life, I won’t say easy, but to make operators more focused on the primary aspects of the job. Just like an airline pilot, you want him to focus on flying the airplane — you don’t want him spending all day trying to get the cabin pressure right,�

Ten ways to simplify your life If the rising costs of trying to keep up with the demands of your life are making you feel like you’re on a runaway train, take a deep breath and consider this: The best way to bring your lifestyle in line with your income is to simplify. It’s good for the soul, too. • Stop directing your goals toward the acquisition of more MARY and more HUNT things. Before you buy another appliance, the latest fad or the newest model, ask yourself these questions: Do I really need this? Will buying it make my life better? • Buy used instead of new. Perfectly good used items are the biggest bargain around. Take computers, for example. A nice model a year or two old can

be purchased for a few hundred dollars, compared to $1,000 or more for a new one. And the fact is, few people need the power of the new model anyway. Same with cars. A late-model used car costs a third less than a new car and will run dependably just as long. • When you do buy new, go for simplicity. Most consumer goods are loaded with features most people will never need or use. These features drive up the cost of the product enormously. Ask yourself, when was the last time you used your DVR’s fancy programming features or changed the settings on your dishwasher? And your camera or phone, do they really need replacing? • Use up the goods you have. Drive that car until the wheels fall off. The same advice holds for appliances, clothes and all sorts of items. Stop throwing out or replacing perfectly good things that still work.

• If you must get rid of serviceable goods, don’t take them to the dump. Recycle by donating them to charitable groups that will see they are put back into service. • Cut down your waste. Recycle newspapers, plastic and paper, if you’re not doing so already. Start a compost pile if you’ve got a bit of land available. • Think smaller. The average new American house has grown by 40 percent since 1970. Three and four bathrooms are common these days, as are huge rooms with high ceilings, which make them more expensive to heat and cool. It’s time that we started questioning this edifice complex. Ditto for big gas-guzzling cars, too. • Set an economical example for your children. By acting with conservation in mind, you lead with your deeds. Trying to fulfill your child’s every material desire

sends two wrong messages: that all is easily attainable, and that baubles are worth having even if you can’t afford them. • Cut down on your driving and shuttling your kids around. You’ll not only save gas, you’ll save wear and tear on yourself and your family. • Make a positive difference in your community. Pitch in on projects that serve everyone, and encourage your children to do the same. Mary Hunt is the founder of www.DebtProofLiving .com and author of 18 books.

Dueling daughters put mom in the middle


Dear Mom: It is very common for kids at this age to act out behavior they perceive as grown-up. This is their way of rehearsing for the drama of romantic life, and for the most part this behavior is developmentally appropriate — and benign. By all means, speak with the teacher to make sure she’s aware of it and to solicit her advice. Also, ask your daughter open-ended questions about this — for example, “What does it mean to have a boyfriend?” React temperately, appropriately and proportionately. If you don’t like this, then say to her, “You’re way too young to have a boyfriend, honey. That’s for much older people.”

Dear Amy: My daughter is in fourth grade and is very creative, kind and beautiful. Recently she told me about her “boyfriend” at school. I have seen this boy a few times when working in my daughter’s classroom and he seems nice. All the children seem to be playing this boyfriend/girlfriend game and it seems harmless, but I still feel really uncomfortable with the idea of my daughter having a boyfriend because she is so young. Should I lay down the law and call the boy’s parents or their teacher about this issue or should I lay off and let my daughter play this harmless game until it gets old? My husband is aware of this but he’s leaving this one up to me. — Mom

YOUR HIGH UTILITY BILLS? With utility bills going up every day, you’ve got to find ways to lower your monthly energy bill. Your heating and air conditioning unit uses as much as half of your energy costs, so it only makes sense to see if it needs replacing. In most cases, the energy savings can help make up for the cost of a new unit, especially if yours is over ten years old.

Dear Mom: I vote for a less brusque version of your husband’s technique. Your daughters are adults. It’s time for them to take responsibility for having and settling their own disputes. They must learn how to “validate” their own feelings, for goodness’ sake. Your daughters call you to mediate their disputes for a reason: When they do this they don’t have to work things out for or between them-

selves. If they had to stew in their juices, patch up their own wounds and repair their relationship after a fight, they might realize that the hateful things they say when they are fighting are not so easily mended. For their own sakes, they must change the way they interact when they’re angry. One day when you are with both of them and they are not fighting, you should talk to them about this and let them know that putting their mommy in the middle of their fights is not what adults should do. After that, if you get one of these mediation calls, by all means say, “Wait a minute — I think your father wants to say hi.” And hand him the phone.


Dear Amy: My husband and I are at odds regarding our daughters’ arguments. Both girls, mid-20s, argue with each other at times. Sometimes they say very hurtful things and sometimes their fights are just plain stupid. Often they will call me and complain about each other, putting me in the middle. I refuse the middle stance and do not take sides but I do listen, try to validate their feelings and guide each to a sensible solution. My husband says I should not talk to them when they are in a snit. He says I should tell them to “deal with it” and ASK hang up. AMY T h e i r fights and how I react to them — which I call parenting — have become an issue between us. So what do I do? Should I tell them to “deal” and hang up — or should I tell my husband to deal and shut up? — Mom in the Middle

with four high-speed rotors that launch it into flight, then switch modes to generate electricity that’s carried down the tether. An onboard computer steers the kite in a wide circle, mimicking the path of the tip of a giant wind turbine blade. That allows the device to interact with a larger wind area, increasing the amount of energy it can capture in the same way increasing the size of a sail increas-

“It lets us make a very reliable system, something operators can just plug in and use,” he said. Sky WindPower’s generator has four rotors, each 35 feet in diameter, that transmit power down the tether. It’s built to hover, rather than swoop or circle, Shepard said. While moving turbines can actually fly faster than the wind by flying crosswind, they can’t fly as high, she said. “We can get up a little higher than they can. We can get to higher velocity winds and make up for it,” Shepard said. Altaeros is developing a stationary turbine that sits inside a 60-foot tall, heliumfilled shroud that acts like a wind funnel. Similar blimplike devices, called aerostats, have long been used to keep heavy equipment aloft, such as government surveillance

radar tethered up to 15,000 feet above U.S. borders. “Our view is that our approach is less risky, because we’re using a technology that’s been out there for decades,” Rein said. Altaeros has big aims — no less than “making an impact on the global energy crisis,” Rein said — but it’s starting small. Its 10 fulland part-time employees share a building with seven other start-up companies in a former wool manufacturing factory in South Boston. Rein notes that before it tries to bring the untapped power of high-altitude wind to thousands, his company is first developing a system that could bring power to about 40 homes in remote areas. “You start smaller... and then you scale up over time,” Rein said. “We think that approach makes a lot of sense.”

BOSTON (AP) — The world’s strongest winds race high in the sky, but that doesn’t mean they’re out of reach as a potentially potent energy source. Flying, swooping and floating turbines are being developed to turn high-altitude winds into electricity. The challenges are huge, but the potential is immense. Scientists estimate the energy in the jet streams is 100 times the amount of power used worldwide annually. Cristina Archer, an atmospheric scientist at the California State University in Chico, said there’s “not a doubt anymore” that high-altitude winds will be tapped for power. “This can be done, it can work,” she said. The question is, when? Some companies project their technology will hit the market by the middle of the decade, but Fort Felker at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory says the industry is 10 years away from making a meaningful contribution to the nation’s electricity demands. No company, for instance, has met the basic requirement of demonstrating its turbine can safely fly unsupervised for prolonged periods of time. High-altitude wind power is similar to ground wind in the 1970s — facing questions but soon to prove its viability, said PJ Shepard of Oroville, Calif.-based Sky WindPower, which is developing a “flying electric generator.” “It’s kind of like the adjustment folks had to make when the Wright brothers started flying airplanes,” she said. The lure of high-altitude wind is simple: Wind speed generally increases with its height above the ground as surface friction diminishes. Each time wind speed doubles, the amount of energy it theoretically holds multiplies by eight times. The world’s most powerful winds circulate in the jet streams, which are found four to 10 miles off the ground and carry winds that regularly break 100 miles per hour. The dream is to eventually tap the jet streams, but high-altitude wind companies are focusing for now below a 2,000-foot ceiling, above which complex federal air-space restrictions kick in. Adam Rein, co-founder of the Boston company Altaeros Energies, said his company calculates winds at the 2,000 foot level are up to 2 1⁄2 times stronger than winds that can be reached by a typical 350-foot land turbine. High-altitude wind advocates say their smaller, lightweight turbines will be far cheaper to build and deploy than windmills with huge blades and towers that must be drilled into land or the sea floor. Those savings would mean inexpensive energy. With wide-scale use, advocates see a range of prices, from something comparable to land wind’s current 9 or 10 cents per kilowatt hour down to an astonishingly low 2 cents per kilowatt hour. “They are projecting crazy numbers,” Archer said. “I’m not saying that it’s true. ... But it’s really the lowest, the cheapest energy source, possibly.” As the turbines eventually aim higher, advocates say there are plenty of remote and offshore no-fly areas where they won’t interfere with aircraft and have minimal interaction with people. Still, any nearby residents must be convinced there’s no danger from falling turbines while accepting a view that includes flying objects attached to long tethers that carry the energy to the ground. High-altitude turbines also won’t escape the various environmental concerns that face conventional turbines, such as their effect on bird flight. And each turbine concept awaits extensive testing on its reliability, durability and effectiveness, said Felker, director of NREL’s National Wind Technology Center. Keeping the turbines operating autonomously over long periods in changing weather may be the biggest

Salisbury Post “The truth shall make you free”



Remembering a young man who made ultimate sacrifice Memorial Day is a day to remember those who gave their lives for our country. I remember a young man, Douglas Ray Noel, who died in the Vietnam War. A few years ago, I found his grave in the Salisbury National Cemetery near the stone fence separating the cemetery from the old Cone Mill. He died when two helicopters crashed together. His tombstone looked old when I saw it. I have found his name on the wall at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington. Doug was a year ahead of me at East Rowan High School and graduated in 1964. On the Internet, I have found comments from those who served with him in the Army. I remember Doug as a nice but mischievous young man whose life ended far too early. If you happen to walk through the old cemetery, pause at his grave and thank him for the sacrifice he gave. He is now forever young. — K.K. Hillard Albuquerque, N.M.

Seeking shelter from the storm

My Turn: Robin M. Perry

Memorial Day: Why we remember emorial Day is almost here — and I am sitting in the sun room overlooking Rainbow Lake in Geneva, Ind. The flag is waving vigorously in the gusty winds, remnant of the tornado watch last night. For years our family has traveled to Indiana to spend Memorial Day with Rick’s folks. It has always been a combination of a fun family gathering with cookouts and boat rides — and a solemn time of remembrance and honor. My father-in-law, Lloyd Perry, was in the 14th Armored Division of General Patton’s 3rdArmy. A bronze Salisbury star recipient, he never resident Robin spoke much about the M. Perry is a war, but he did speak regular conclearly and earnestly tributor to the when he reminded us Post. Contact that freedom isn’t free her via editor@ and should not be taken salisburypost. for granted. He knew com. firsthand what it was to fight for freedom, and how many of his fellow soldiers gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives to keep America free. That is what Memorial Day is all about — honoring those who died serving our country. Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on May 5, 1868, by Gen. Jon Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. After WWI the holiday changed from honoring just those who died fighting the Civil War to honoring


all Americans who died fighting in any war. Sadly, today, many have forgotten the meaning and traditions of Memorial Day and some never really knew them. We celebrate Memorial Day, not just with sales and picnics, but to honor and remember those who died fighting for our freedoms. At Arlington National Cemetery, like at many cemeteries across the nation, gravestones are decorated with American flags. I am grateful to know the meaning and traditions. The proper flag etiquette is very specific on this day. On Memorial Day, the flag is raised briskly to the top of the staff and then solemnly lowered to the halfstaff position, where it remains only until noon. It is then raised to full staff for the remainder of the day. The halfstaff position remembers the more than one million men and women who gave their lives in service of their country. At noon their memory is raised by the living, who resolve not to let their sacrifice be in vain, but to rise up in their stead and continue the fight for liberty and justice for all. Each Memorial Day, Lloyd Perry performed the flag ceremony in his beautiful yard on the lake, while family gathered to watch. He took the ceremony to heart and would end with a crisp, sharp salute that only a true military man can do. He would not let the sacrifice of so many be in vain. His children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were there to witness the tribute. On March 30, Lloyd left this earthly life of 88 years. He left a hole in the

hearts of his family that will not be filled. He left a rich legacy for us all to remember and continue. This Memorial Day will be a tough one for us, but a glorious one for him. There was a poem he had glued in his Bible. At his request, it was read at his funeral by our son, Russell. I share it now as a tribute to those brave soldiers gone before, and to honor those still with us.

Taps By Arta Nottingham Chappius There will be a great encampment In the lands of clouds today A mingling and a merging Of our boys who’ve gone away. Though on earth they are disbanding, They are very close and near For those brave and honored heroes Show no sorrow, shed no tear. They have lived a life of glory History pins their medals highListen to the thunder rolling They are marching in the sky! The flag ceremony will continue this Memorial Day at Rainbow Lake. Family member, Jeremy Nevil, an Army veteran who returned from active duty in Afghanistan last July, will perform the sacred task. He promised Lloyd he would be here. The remembrance continues.

I have a concern with the way Rowan County deals with tornadic storms in our area. I live in a moble home, and I will explain my dilemma. I have been looking for a place to go in case of bad weather. We have had a few tornadoes hit our county this year. Last month, there was a break in the TV programming when across the screen came an alert to all Rowan County citizens. It said: This is not a test. If you live in a mobile home in Rowan, leave and seek shelter immediatly because a tornado had been spotted on the ground. Of course, that is what I did. I took my disabled wife and searched for shelter, and none for us was to be found. We have been living in a mobile home for the past 10 years.We have called the Sheriff’s Office, the fire department and the county office. We were told that where we vote on Old Concord Road and Peach Orchard Road, there is a bomb shelter. But when we are told to leave our trailer and seek other shelter, it is always closed. My wife and I are disabled, and it is hard for us to get around. The shelter is only two miles from our home, but when we go there, it is always closed. There are a lot of mobile homes in our area, and if we did get hit, we would end up like Joplin, Mo. I think attention should be paid to this. The last time an alert was put on the TV, we called the Sheriff’s Office and asked where to go. They suggested we go to a house. We know no one here in our county. When we asked about shelters, he said they were only opened after a disaster has happened and homes have been destroyed. Are we supposed to get in our car and drive around in a tornado awaiting the disaster and at the same time endangering ourselves by being in a car in the storm? We do not have anywhere else to go. Can anyone please help us? — Richard & Sharon Thompson Salisbury

The secret of happiness is freedom, and the secret of freedom, courage. — Thucydides

A story Americans should hold in their hearts P

erhaps you’ve heard of him, perhaps not. Louis Zamperini has had fame, lost it and seen it restored more than once. That happens when you are 94 years old and must be re-introduced to succeeding generations. Zamperini was a juvenile delinquent, then an Olympic distance runner who competed in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany (he met Adolf Hitler and his chief propagandist, Joseph Goebbels), then an Army Air Corps enlistee. Louis crashed in the Pacific after a rescue plane developed engine trouble. He floated for 47 days on a raft before being picked up by a JapanCAL ese warship. He and his THOMAS surviving buddies were taken to a prison camp where they lived in subhuman conditions, suffering unimaginable physical and mental torture. Louis' incredible story of “survival, resilience, and redemption,” has been brilliantly told in Laura Hillenbrand’s latest book, “Unbroken.” I read all 398 pages in two sittings. For myself, the son of a World War II veteran, whose four uncles also served, it is another of those “greatest generation” books popularized by Tom Brokaw. Reading it reinforces one’s pride in being an American and deepens the appreciation one feels for

those who gave their lives so that we could live ours. On a recent visit to Washington, I asked Louis if he was able to call up vivid memories of his friends who died in the plane crash and the ones who subsequently died in the prison camp. He told me, “The memories never fade. It’s like indelible ink. When you go through an intense period like we did, it’s branded on your heart and mind.” When he thinks about those who died and those with whom he served, does Memorial Day make his memories even more vivid? “You have buddies in college, buddies on the Olympic team, but there’s something about combat buddies that it’s hard to explain.” He can never forget and he doesn’t want to. Louis says he recently read about “a kid who came back from Afghanistan about three months ago. They fixed his leg up and told him ‘Well, you can get out of the service now' and he told them, ‘no, I want to go back to Afghanistan to be with my buddies.’ That’s the way it is in war. It’s altogether different from athletics and close friends. My buddies were a pilot, co-pilot and navigator.” I asked Laura Hillenbrand about this much-chronicled generation. What does she think shaped it? “What struck me about these people,” she begins, “is they had all gone through the Depression ... and while that was very difficult, it was like they were being forged in fire. I think the men and women who came out

of the Depression were made of sterner stuff than people are today. And it made them capable of getting through what they had to get through in the war. It gave them a sense of purpose; it gave them fortitude; it gave them an ability to endure. I think that may be the biggest difference between that generation and now. We have had it easier. We have expectations we will be given certain things and things will come without sacrifice. That generation didn’t have that.” What would Hillenbrand say this Memorial Day to those who have lost loved ones in war? “I think the sacrifices that are made by fighting men and women are among the greatest you can make in your life. This is an extraordinarily meaningful way to spend your life, whether you survive or not. Some of the most beautifully liberating things in our history have been done by fighting men and women. I hope there is some condolence for those who have lost someone that their loved one was lost in the service of something so grand as what the military stands for.” “Unbroken” has spent 10 weeks at number one and is currently number seven on the New York Times Best Sellers List. It deserves to be in every American home and Louis’ story should be in every American heart. • • • Contact Cal Thomas at tmseditors@

Hacking at Lockheed Martin highlights growing threat of cyber attacks NEW YORK (AP) — Lockheed Martin has admitted it was the recent target of a “significant and tenacious” cyber attack, although the defense contractor and the Department of Homeland Security insist the hack was thwarted before any critical data was stolen. But what about next time? With top-secret military programs at stake, staying a step ahead of ever-evolving cyber spies is not just a task for corporate IT departments, it’s a matter of national security. Information security experts say the rash of cyber attacks this year — including a massive security breach at Sony Corp. last month that affected millions of PlayStation users — has emboldened hackers and made them more willing to pursue sensitive information. “2011 has really lit up the boards in terms of data breaches,” said Josh Shaul, chief technology officer at Application Security, a New York-based company that is one of the largest database security software makers. “The list of targets just grows and grows.” Lockheed Martin Corp. said in a statement Saturday that it detected the May 21 attack “almost immediately” and took countermeasures. “Our systems remain secure; no customer, program or employee personal data has been compromised,” the Bethesda, Md.-based company said. Neither Lockheed Martin nor federal agencies would reveal specifics of the attack, or its origins. Company spokeswoman Jennifer Whitlow declined to comment further on the case Sunday.

US troops in Afghanistan hold candlelight Memorial Day ceremony KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Nearly a decade later, after more than 1,400 killed in combat, some U.S. troops paused for a moment Sunday to remember what brought America to Afghanistan and to honor the lives that continue to be lost. Blackhawk helicopters churned through the night sky as a strong wind coming over Kabul’s surrounding mountains blew against the flickering candles that cast an orange glow on those gathered for the ceremony at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ headquarters. Earlier in the day, those working there enjoyed one of their five days off a year from building police stations, dams and other projects in a nation torn by decades of war. Col. Thomas Magness, 47, of Los Angeles urged the more than 100 corps employees and U.S. troops gathered there to remember the meaning of Memorial Day — advice that could carry home to America. “While we were playing volleyball today, no doubt some soldier gave the ultimate sacrifice,” the corps commander said. Memorial Day, instituted to honor America’s war dead, will be observed tonday with a public holiday. This Memorial Day comes before the 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, which ultimately brought U.S. troops into Afghanistan to unseat the Taliban government and hunt terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.

Alabama town hit by tornadoes upset by ban on single-wide trailers CORDOVA, Ala. (AP) — James Ruston’s house was knocked off its foundation by tornadoes that barreled through town last month and is still uninhabitable. He thought help had finally arrived when a truck pulled up to his property with a mobile home from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Then he got the call: Single-wide mobile homes, like the FEMA one, are illegal in the city of Cordova. The city’s refusal to let homeless residents occupy temporary housing provided by FEMA has sparked outrage in this central Alabama town of 2,000, with angry citizens filling a meeting last week and circulating petitions to remove the man many blame for the decision, Mayor Jack Scott. Ruston and many others view the city’s decision as heartless, a sign that leaders don’t care that some people are barely surviving in the rubble of a bluecollar town. “People have to live somewhere. What’s it matter if it’s in a trailer?” asked Felicia Boston, standing on the debris-strewn lot where a friend has lived in a tent since a tornado destroyed his home on April 27.

Clashes erupt in Belgrade to protest Mladic arrest; 3,000 riot police deployed BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Protesters throwing stones and bottles clashed with baton-wielding riot police Sunday in Belgrade after several thousand Serbian nationalist supporters of jailed war-crimes suspect Ratko Mladic rallied outside the parliament building to demand his release. By the time the crowds broke up by late evening, about 100 people were arrested and 16 minor injuries were reported. That amounted to a victory for

Lockheed Martin on Saturday admitted it was the recent target of a ‘significant and tenacious’ cyber attack, although the defense contractor and the Department of Homeland Security insist the hack was thwarted before any critical data was stolen. the pro-Western government, which arrested Mladic on Thursday, risking the wrath of the nationalist old guard in a country with a history of much larger and more virulent protests. Rioters overturned garbage containers, broke traffic lights and set off firecrackers as they rampaged through downtown. Cordons of riot police blocked their advances, and skirmishes took place in several locations in the center of the capital. Doctors said six police officers were among the 16 people brought to a hospital with minor injuries. Police remained on the streets as the crowds broke up. The clashes began after a rally that drew at least 7,000 demonstrators, many singing nationalist songs and carrying banners honoring Mladic, the former Bosnian Serb military commander. Some chanted right-wing slogans and a few gave Nazi salutes.

Dentures save Brazil man shot in face, doctor says SAO PAULO (AP) — An elderly Brazilian man shot in the face escaped death when his dentures deflected a bullet headed for his brain. A hospital official says that 81-yearold Zacarias Pacheco de Moraes was shot Thursday while working in a bar he owns in the small western city of Alta Floresta. Jose Marcos da Silva was quoted by Globo TV’s G1 website Saturday as saying that the bullet probably would have pierced Moraes’ brain if it hadn’t first hit his dentures before lodging in his throat. The official said the bullet will not be removed immediately because surgery right now would be too risky. Silva said the patient was in stable condition but in danger of losing part of his eyesight because of the bullet’s trajectory. He did not elaborate.

In Arizona, 9/11 memorial preaches vengeance and tolerance PHOENIX (AP) — Matthew Salenger etched 54 phrases in a circular piece of steel, building Arizona’s Sept. 11 memorial one story at a time. He wanted everyone’s story to be told. Phrases like “10:28 a.m. WTC North Tower Collapses” stated undisputed facts. Then there was “Must Bomb Back” and its polar opposite: “You Don’t Win Battles of Terrorism With More Battles.” Gary Bird, a businessman and Arizona’s sole Sept. 11 victim, was listed. So was a Sikh who was killed in a hate crime outside Phoenix, four days later. Salenger thought that all of those thoughts could coexist peacefully on a public memorial. He was wrong. “I think we overestimated how much respect people would have for each other and their views,” says Salenger, who was one of the monument’s three designers. “People didn’t want to see something they don’t agree with in public.” The rivaling stories on the memorial touched off a bitter, yearslong struggle in Arizona over how Sept. 11 should be publicly remembered. Here, as in the rest of the United States, there are opposite and diverging opinions about tolerance and patriotism, hate and peace. And on the Phoenix memorial, those opinions are etched in steel, side by side.

Syria says it will cooperate on nuclear probe but US pushes for UN referral NEW YORK (AP) — In a major turnaround, Syria is pledging full cooperation with U.N. attempts to probe strong evidence that it secretly built a reactor that could have been used to make nuclear arms, according to a confidential document shared with the Associated Press on Sunday. If Syria fulfills its promise, the move

would end three years of stonewalling by Damascus of the International Atomic Energy. Since 2008, the agency has tried in vain to follow up on strong evidence that a target bombed in 2007 by Israeli warplanes was a nearly built nuclear reactor that would have produced plutonium once active. Syria’s sudden readiness to cooperate seems to be an attempt at derailing U.S.-led attempts to have Damascus referred to the U.N. Security Council amid already strong international pressure on the Syrian leadership to end its crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators. An IAEA report last week said the Vienna-based agency “assesses that the building destroyed ... was a nuclear reactor” — the finding sought by Washington and its allies to push to have Syria reported to the council by a 35-nation IAEA board meeting next month. That, in turn, apparently triggered Syria’s decision to compromise.

UN nuclear agency opens probe for Malaysia plant KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysia’s government says U.N. nuclear experts have opened investigations into whether plans for an Australian-built rare earth refinery present any threat of radioactive pollution. The plant currently being built by Australian miner Lynas in eastern Malaysia could curtail China’s monopoly on the supply of rare earths for making high-tech goods. Malaysia’s trade ministry said a delegation from the International Atomic Energy Agency was starting talks Monday with activists worried about lowlevel radioactive waste from the planned plant. Malaysian authorities are expected to decide whether to let the plant proceed with refining ore from Western Australia after the panel submits its report next month. Lynas says the plant will have state-of-the art contamination controls.

Loughner’s lawyers want notice if he is drugged TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Lawyers for the man charged in the deadly Tucson shooting rampage want federal officials to notify them if they plan to give their client psychotropic medication. A federal judge in Tucson ruled last week that 22-year-old Jared Lee Loughner is mentally unfit to assist his lawyers or understand the charges he faces. He was sent Friday to a federal prison facility in Springfield, Mo., for treatment. Defense attorney Judy Clarke filed the motion late last week. Mental health experts who examined Loughner concluded he suffers from schizophrenia. Prosecutor Wallace Kleindienst said doctors will seek to medicate him to see if he improves. Loughner has pleaded not guilty to federal charges stemming from the Jan. 8 shooting that killed six people, and wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 12 others.

Libyan rebels: No oil production until fields safe BENGHAZI, Libya (AP) — The Libyan rebels’ finance minister says the oil fields located in the eastern half of the country under opposition control will not resume production until it’s safe to send workers to the fields. Ali Tarhouni says the rebels are “working day and night to ensure that we have that protection” and as soon as he feels “there’s a minimum level of security, we’ll start the oil fields.” He cautioned Sunday that “it won’t be a matter of a week,” and “it’s going to take some time.” Before the uprising against Moammar Gadhafi’s regime, Libya produced about 1.6 million barrels per day, just under 2 percent of world production. Production has ground to a halt during the revolt that began Feb. 15.

JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — Face to face with the legions of homeless and the bereaved, President Barack Obama on Sunday toured the apocalyptic landscape left by Missouri’s killer tornado, consoled the community and committed the government to helping rebuild shattered lives. “We’re not going to stop ‘til Joplin’s back on its feet,” Obama vowed. A memorial service where Obama spoke punctuated a day of remembrance one week after the disaster, as authorities pressed on with the task of identifying the victims and volunteers combed through wreckage of neighborhoods where nothing was left whole. The service erupted in cheers when Obama said, “I promise you your country will be there with you every single step of the way,” a pledge he extended to all parts of the nation raked by violent storms this season. The Joplin tornado was the worst to hit the United States in decades, leaving more than 120 dead and hundreds more injured. At least 40 people remain unaccounted for. Air Force One flew over a massive swath of brown — a land of flattened houses and stripped trees — on its approach to Joplin. On the ground, the destruction was even more stark and complete. Obama confronted painful sights at every turn and said nothing in his life measured up to what he saw this day. Yet he spoke, too, of redemptive moments, the stoicism of the community and tales of plain luck. He told a story of a man he talked to who had taken a chicken pot pie out of the oven, heard the storm was coming, hid in a closet and “came out without a scratch.” Obama celebrated the spirit of volunteers who have flocked to Joplin to help, the pickup owners who ferried people to the hospital and the citizens who lined up for hours to donate blood to people they don’t know. “You’ve demonstrated a simple truth,” he told the service, “that amid heartbreak and tragedy no one is a stranger. Everybody is a brother. Everybody is a sister. We can all love one another.” The crowd of hundreds at the service reflected a community in the midst of rebuilding: people in shorts and baseball caps, and plenty of babies who occasionally burst out crying. The president talked over the screeching until a baby was hurried out by the mother. Obama got a notably warm reception in this conservative part of Missouri. His remarks were tailored for a religious service, with quotes from scripture, references to the love that binds people to each other, and comments on the essential goodness of humanity. The stories of the storm lead us to “put aside our petty grievances,” the president said. “There are heroes all around us, all the time. So, in the wake of this tragedy, let us live up to their example: to make each day count.” Known for his cool, eventempered demeanor, Obama offered his own brand of comforting: eloquent words, plentiful handshakes, some hugs, pats on the heads of children, offers of “God bless you.” Not for him the raw emotion Americans saw in his predecessors George W. Bush or Bill Clinton.

president Barack obama consoles 85-year old Hugh Hills standing in front of his destroyed house in Joplin, Mo., on Sunday. Before the service, Obama’s motorcade pulled into a neighborhood where downed trees cleaved open houses, roofs were stripped or blown off, cars were cratered and splintered wood was everywhere. He saw nothing intact, but rather small domestic sights — a view into a room with a TV still in place, a recliner sitting amid rubble, a washer-dryer standing next to a decimated house. American flags were planted here and there in the mess. “Sorry for your loss,” Obama told an anguished woman, hugging her twice as they talked. Another woman told him that her uncle lives up the road — he survived but his house did not. “Tell your uncle we’re praying for him,” the president said. To those working at the scene, the president said: “We appreciate everything you guys are doing. God bless you.” One volunteer told him that people were coming in from other states to help in any way they could. “This is not just your tragedy,” Obama said. “This is a national tragedy, and that means there will be a national response.” He said: “We are going to be here long after the cameras leave.” Hours after Obama’s speech — at 5:41 p.m. Central time, to mark the first report of the tornado — hundreds stood in Joplin’s Cunningham Park, in between wrecked cars and twisted poles, for a moment of silence. Many in the crowd wore white T-shirts emblazoned, “Joplin’s Heart Will Sing Again.” “We will rebuild Joplin,” City Manager Mark Rohr told the crowd. “You have my word on it.” Obama returned to the U.S. on Saturday from a sixday European tour of Ireland, Britain, France and Poland. After days of focusing on the U.S. relationship with the rest of the world, Sunday was about an even more critical connection: his own, with the American people. Consoling his fellow Americans is a task Obama has had to assume with increasing frequency of late: after the mass shooting in Arizona in January in which Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was injured; when tornadoes struck Tuscaloosa, Ala., last month; and, more recently, when flooding from the Mississippi inundated parts of Memphis, Tenn. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon and local clergy, some of whose churches were ravaged, spoke at the service. Some people said it will help them grieve and move forward with rebuilding. “You need to talk about it,” said Dorothy Iwan, 67, whose granddaughter was caught in the storm but uninjured. “You need to process it. You need to know people are behind you.”

Until, that is, the central Pennsylvania man knocked out a wall to get it out. Reeves spent the past nine years building a two-seat airplane in the basement of his Cumberland County home. The plane arrived in pieces via mail but eventually it became way too big to get up the

steps. So Reeves dug a trench down to the foundation and took out a wall. Reeves pulled the plane out Wednesday using a truck, a chain and some neighbors. Onlookers were drawn to the spectacle by the “Airplane Removal Wednesday” put up on Reeves’ porch. Reeves tells The PatriotNews of Harrisburg he spent $40,000 on the plane and about $5,000 on the excavation.

No. 1 pick Harper excites fans BY MIKE LONDON

Tyler buckwell/SALISBURY POST

Bryce Harper takes a mighty swing in the win against the Kannapolis Intimidators.

KANNAPOLIS — Hagerstown’s Bryce Harper’s first at-bat on Saturday evening produced a mild buzz from the 2,572 fans in attendance, at Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium and a lazy flyball to left field. “Who’s No. 1 now!” barked a pleased Kannapolis Intimidators fan. The 6-foot-3 Harper’s second at-bat yielded his 26th walk of the season, and his third at-bat won’t be forgotten by anyone who saw it. Harper, who bats left and throws right, mashed a 2-0 fastball the way Mickey Mantle used to hit them when he was healthy — maybe the way Babe Ruth

“I’m just looking for something I can drive. I haven’t been going that well lately, but sometimes it happens.” It happened. There was no doubt where that severely bruised baseball was headed as soon as it was introduced to Harper’s bat, but it still took quite a while to get there. After a majestic flight, it finally descended, way out there beyond the center-field fence. “He actually hasn’t hit many homers that looked Tyler buckwell/SALISBURY POST like that,” said Hagerstown Bryce Harper showed his play-by-play broadcaster Bryan Holland. “Most of his power against Kannapolis. homers are hard-hit liners that just keep carrying.” launched them in the RoarHarper received a signing ing Twenties. bonus of $6.25 million from “He had to come to me on See HARPER, 5B 2-0,” Harper said quietly.


South falls to 0-2 BY JORDAN HONEYCUTT

MOORESVILLE — The season is Mooresville 7 not startS. Rowan 4 ing out the way South Rowan head coach Michael Lowman would like, as his team fell to (0-2) Sunday with a 7-4 loss to Mooresville. South spotted the Moors too many runs and committed too many errors in the early innings and could never catch up. South welcomed back starting pitcher Dylan Walker from college ball and he pitched well but showed a bit of rust from not throwing very much as a freshman at Catawba Valley Community College. “Dylan deserved better behind him tonight than what he got, but he made some good pitches, and like I said, LOWMAN just couldn’t get the help in the field,” Lowman said. This game turned bad early in more ways than on the scoreboard for South in the third inning. A scary moment that happens often in baseball occurred. Shortstop Gunnar Hogan and second baseman Connor Bridges both began to chase after a hard-hit grounder by Mooresville shortstop Josh Skidmore when both South infielders slid and collided with each other, producing a “thud” that could be heard in



Kevin Harvick celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday night.

Harvick wins as Dale fizzles BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press

COINCORD — Dale Earnhardt Jr. closed out a day of wild finishes Sunday by running out of gas a half-lap short of snapping his nearly threeyear losing streak. Kevin Harvick sailed by Earnhardt coming out of the final turn in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where Earnhardt was comfortably out front in the closing laps of NASCAR’s longest race of the year. Earnhardt knew stretching his gas to the finish was going to be

tough, but crew chief Steve Letarte ordered him to go for broke. It capped a frantic few minutes of strategy as nearly five hours of racing came down to fuel mileage and a final two-lap sprint to the finish. The crew chief begged Earnhardt to not worry about gas and chase down Greg Biffle and Kasey Kahne over the final 20 laps. But Letarte reversed course when Kahne closed in on Biffle, and Matt Kenseth, who was running fourth, stopped for gas. Figuring Biffle and Kahne would run out racing each other for the win, he urged Earnhardt to sit tight and

try to exploit their misfortune. It might have worked, too, if Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson’s engine didn’t fail four laps from the finish. Biffle had to stop for gas under caution, and Kahne and Earnhardt lined up side-by-side for the final restart. Earnhardt, on the bottom, got a great jump as Kahne got hit from behind by Brad Keselowski. It caused cars to stack up in the middle of the pack, and debris was strewn everywhere. But the caution call from NASCAR never came, and Earnhardt

needed only to get to the white flag to seal his win. He got to the flag just fine. But because the yellow never waved, he had to race and couldn’t make it to the finish. Earnhardt ran out on the back straightaway, coasted through the final turn, and Harvick cruised by for his third win of the season. “I just do what my dang crew chief says, and I believe that was the right call because if we would have pitted, I don’t know where we would have

Geraldine throws party for Cavs BY MIKE LONDON

EAST SPENCER — North Rowan’s 1A basketball champions have been honored at exotic venues this season, but they probably got as big a kick out of Saturday’s informal cookout at the Mitchell residence on East Spencer’s Grant Street as they did being introduced at Time Warner Cable Arena at halftime of a Bobcats game. The Cavaliers haven’t received their championship rings yet, but it’s a festive moment in history for a school that feels, with good reason, that it turned the athletic corner during the 2010-11 school year. “It’s a beautiful time,” said Geraldine Mitchell, the hostess of Saturday’s soiree and the mother of boys basketball coach Andrew Mitchell. North’s boys outdoor track team also won a state title, with several basketball players

contributing. Girls track was state runnerup. The wrestling team made a serious run. The football team won the conference. The baseball team reached the third round of the playoffs, and the girls soccer and softball also were in the 1A playoffs this spring. “I think the whole atmosphere is good right now under (principal) Darrell McDowell,” Andrew Mitchell said. “Good sports teams are very good for school morale.” Green and gold were everywhere. That was the color scheme for the tablecloths, the balloons, the cups, even the napkins. The fried chicken, potato salad, barbecued beans, slaw, hamburgers and hotdogs weren’t green and gold, but they were tasty. While the gala began strictly as a celebration of the school’s hoops heroes, invitations were eventually extended to other North sports teams and even to the Salisbury girls ronnie gallagher/SALISBURY POST

Wade Moore (West Rowan, Catawba) snapped out a slump with his first homer of the season on Saturday night, as the Hagerstown Suns beat the Kannapolis Intimidators 10-5 at Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium. Quite a few friends and family were on hand to watch Moore homer to right leading off the fourth inning. It was his only hit of a 1-for-5 night.

Cavaliers win ACC tournament DURHAM (AP) — Steven Proscia hit a tiebreaking three-run home run, one of three homers for Virginia in its 7-2 victory over Florida State on Sunday in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. John Hicks and Chris Taylor added two-run shots for the Cavaliers (49-9). They won their third league title, polished off a perfect 4-0 week at the tournament and claimed a

title-game win over the Seminoles in Durham for the second time in two years. Justin Gonzalez tied it at 2 with a solo homer in the sixth for the Seminoles (42-17), who were denied a second straight ACC championship. Proscia's shot off starter Hunter Scantling later that inning sailed over the 32-foot “Blue Monster” in left field and put the Cavaliers up 5-2. Taylor homered an inning off

reliever Scott Sitz later to make it a five-run game. Virginia starter Danny Hultzen (10-3) struck out five and allowed two runs on six hits in six innings. Virginia was the only team to go unbeaten during three games in pool play, while the only blemish for the Seminoles was an opening-game loss to N.C. State. That set up a rematch of the 2009 league title game.

Weinke calls new signals as QB guru BY CHIP SCOGGINS Minneapolis Star Tribune

Former Carolina Panthers quarterback Chris Weinke had an itch to get into coaching after his NFL career ended in 2008, but he wasn’t sure where or at what level. Sports is part of his DNA. A decorated athlete at Cretin-Derham Hall in St. Paul, Minn., Weinke won a national championship and the Heisman Trophy as a quarterback at Florida State. He played professional baseball before college, and started 20 games at quarterback in his seven NFL seasons. But Weinke hadn’t established any concrete longterm plans after his athletic career finally ended. “Played a lot of golf,” the 38-year-old said. His life took a new course, however, after he ran into a staff member of the renowned IMG Academy at a Florida State football game. That spurred a process that led Weinke to become director of the IMG Madden Football Academy, which opened last spring in Bradenton, Fla. Known for its work with golf and tennis prodigies, IMG hired Weinke to help launch its football academy, which offers specialized camps and instruction for players at all levels. His clientele includes a 13-year-old quarterback from Kentucky, high school kids hoping to earn a college scholarship and ... Cam Newton, the 2010 Heisman Trophy winner from Auburn and recent No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft. Weinke also began working privately with Vikings quarterback Joe Webb last week, and first-round pick Christian Ponder, a fellow Florida State alum, is scheduled to join them this week. Weinke spends hours every day working on the field and in the film room with a diverse group of players at different stages of their careers. “That’s why I say it’s the best job in the world,” Weinke said.

The football academy is open to players at all positions, but Weinke works primarily with quarterbacks for obvious reasons. His daily regimen with Newton provides a glimpse of Weinke’s desire to make the academy a place where quarterbacks receive specialized training. Newton, who was selected No. 1 overall by the Carolina Panthers, trained at IMG before his pro day workout and returned recently because of the ongoing NFL lockout. Weinke scheduled his own “four-day minicamp” with Newton, who brought his Carolina playbook with him. Weinke said they worked in the classroom for 90 minutes going over plays and defenses in the morning, followed by 90 minutes of work on the field. They returned to the classroom after lunch for another 90-minute study session. Newton had the option of a second throwing session in the afternoon. “We’re spending about 3 to 31⁄2 hours a day in the classroom installing his offense and watching video,” Weinke said. “We film everything, we video it, we analyze it. We come back in the afternoon and do some more installation and review some video. It’s really similar to what they would face if they went to a minicamp following the draft.” Weinke said the work is especially important for rookies because of the lockout. The players don’t have the luxury of minicamps and organized team activities to learn their systems. They can’t even communicate with their coaches during the lockout. Weinke said Ponder, the No. 12 overall pick, is scheduled to train with him for one month and will get plenty of film study. “I’ll do the same thing with him (as Newton),” Weinke said. “There will be an installation of the offense, for him to get familiar with the verbiage and the concepts. We’ll take all that information and go to the field and apply all of that.” Ponder and Webb are represented by the same agency, SportsTrust Advi-

sors. Ponder received a portion of the Vikings playbook when he visited Winter Park after the draft. Webb got a copy of it when the lockout was lifted for one day. Weinke will help the two quarterbacks begin to learn Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave’s system. “...I know both Joe and Christian will have their playbook, and my understanding is the goal is to work on their footwork and installing their plays as much as possible while they’re down there,” said Pat Dye Jr., who is Webb’s agent. (Jimmy Sexton represents Ponder.) Weinke evaluates quarterbacks’ mechanics on the field and offers tips and suggestions. He also videotapes the sessions and reviews them with the players afterward. “I’m not here to change these guys,” he said. “I’m here to really refine their skills and help them or point things out.” While Weinke’s work with NFL players attracts more attention, he spends the majority of his time instructing youth and high school players in camps and individual sessions. Weinke said the academy’s inaugural weekend camp last summer drew 130 players from 26 states. Five junior high kids enrolled in the school on the IMG campus for year-round training. Weinke even anticipates fielding a high school and junior varsity program starting in the fall of 2012. Weinke, the Heisman winner in 2000, describes his new career as a “perfect fit.” “I’ve always said I was a student of the game. I couldn’t run fast, couldn’t jump. I was blessed with a decent arm. But at the end of the day for me to have any success, I had to be a student of the game. That’s really where I think I can separate (myself) in terms of the teaching aspect of it. That I did understand the game, that I spent a lot of time studying the game. Players are always trying to find an edge.”

The matchup everyone wants Associated Press

MIAMI — It’s the matchup that basketball fans might really want to see. Not Heat vs. Mavericks. LeBron vs. Dirk. There’s a chance at some point in the NBA finals, which begin Tuesday when Dallas visits Miami, that Heat forward LeBron James may find himself guarding Mavs star Dirk Nowitzki. If it happens, James said he will accept the challenge. “People see me as a really good defender and him as the best offensive player,” James said. “So they automatically put me on him. Whatever it takes. If I need to guard him throughout the course of the series, I will. It doesn’t matter to me.” The Heat will likely use an ASSOCIATED PRESS array of players on Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki, left, works with stat coach including Chris Bosh, Joel Roland Beech during practice.

IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon douses himself with milk after winning the Indianapolis 500. certain gold medal. They had it in the bag — and threw it all away. “I’m just frustrated. It’s not because we came in here with the expectation of winning and we didn’t,” Hildebrand said. “I felt like I just made a mistake and it cost our boys. I guess that’s why rookies don’t win the Indianapolis 500 a whole lot, and we’ll be back next year, I guess.” After losing his ride from last season — with Hildebrand’s team, no less — Wheldon had plenty of time to hang out with his wife and two young children, while also dealing with the burden of his mother being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

Wheldon said. “I never gave up.” He took the traditional swig of milk and headed off on a triumphant lap around the speedway — a lap that Hildebrand should have been taking. Instead, the youngster stopped by the garage to get a look at his mangled car, which was hauled through Gasoline Alley instead of being wheeled into Victory Lane. He’s now in the company of athletes such as Jean Van de Velde, who squandered a three-shot lead on the last hole of the 1999 British Open, and Lindsey Jacobellis, whose hotdogging wipeout at the 2006 Winter Olympics cost her a

INDIANAPOLIS — Dan Wheldon was zipping toward the final corner of Sunday’s Indianapolis 500, surely figuring the best he could do was another runner-up finish. Then he came upon JR Hildebrand’s crumpled car, all smashed up and sliding along the wall. The rookie had made the ultimate mistake with his very last turn of the wheel, and Wheldon, not Hildebrand, made an improbable turn into Victory Lane. “It’s obviously unfortunate, but that’s Indianapolis,” said Wheldon, who won Indy in 2005 and finished second the last two years. “That’s why it’s the greatest spectacle in racing. You never now what’s going to happen.” This might have been the whackiest one ever. In his first event of the year, Wheldon captured the ultimate IndyCar prize. But the 100th anniversary of the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing” will be remembered more for the guy who let it slip away with the checkered flag in sight. Leading by almost 4 seconds and needing to make it around the 21/2-mile track just one more time, Hildebrand cruised through the first three turns with no problem.

The fourth one got him. He went too high, lost control and slammed into the outside wall. Wheldon sped past, while Hildebrand’s battered machine skidded across the line 2.1 seconds behind, still hugging the concrete barrier. “It’s a helpless feeling,” Hildebrand said. The 23-year-old Californian got into trouble when he came up on another rookie, Charlie Kimball, going much slower as they approached the last corner. Instead of backing off, the leader moved to the outside to make the pass — a decision that sent him slamming into the wall to a collective gasp from the crowd of 250,000. “I caught him in the wrong piece of track,” Hildebrand said. “I got up in the marbles and that was it.” While Wheldon celebrated his second Indy 500 win, series officials reviewed the video to see if Wheldon passed the wrecked machine before the caution lights went on. He clearly did, and Hildebrand’s team said it wouldn’t protest the result. That gave the Brit another spot on the Borg-Warner Trophy. Not bad, considering he doesn’t even have a full-time job. “I just felt a lot of relief. It’s an incredible feeling,”, the Heat were a 1.7-1 favorite to win the NBA title at the start of the season, while Dallas was a 20-1 pick. The site also lists Miami as the favorite in this matchup. ... Since the start of the 2005-06 season, LeBron James has played in 376 wins, second-most in the NBA behind Lakers point guard Derek Fisher (378). ... If he plays in the first three games of the finals, Mavericks sixth-man Jason Terry will be the first NBA player to appear in 100 games this season. Four members of the Oklahoma City Thunder — James Harden, Serge Ibaka, Eric Maynor and Russell Westbrook — appeared in 99. ... The Heat already tied a franchise record with 70 wins this season — not set by the 2006 title team, but by the 2004-05 club that lost in the Eastern Conference finals.

Watson wins on playoff birdie


Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Tom Watson had stood over putts like this pressure-packed 3footer at the Senior PGA Championship for most of his adult life. Why dawdle? "I didn't take much time with the putt," he said with that famous toothy grin. "I took one practice stroke and figured, 'Let's get this over with.'" Watson summoned up some of his old major magic, holing the short birdie putt on the first playoff hole to beat David Eger on Sunday. The 61-year-old Watson, down a shot with four holes left in regulation, became the oldest player to win a major since the senior tour was created in 1980. He also became the second-oldest winner of the Senior PGA, behind only Jock Hutchison who was 62 in 1947. "If this is the last tournament I ever win, it's not a bad one," Watson said. "I'm kind of on borrowed time out here at 61." • VIRGINIA WATER, England — Luke Donald won a duel for No. 1 with a playoff victory over fellow Englishman Lee Westwood in the BMW PGA Championship. Donald, second behind Westwood entering the tournament, birdied the par-5 18th in the playoff, hitting his approach within 5 feet before Westwood's wedge shot spun off the green and into the water hazard. Donald closed with a 1-un-

Kevin Harvick performs a burnout after winning. Harvick got some help with the victory when Dale Earnhardt Jr. ran out of gas a half-lap from ending his losing streak.

But if we had won that race, it would have been a gift.” Earnhardt faded to seventh, and his losing streak hit 105 races. Earnhardt apologized to his fans — many of whom were jumping up and down in anticipation mere seconds from the finish. Earlier Sunday, rookie JR Hildebrand crashed coming out of the final turn to lose the Indianapolis 500. Both Earnhardt and Hildebrand are sponsored by the National Guard, and the finishes of the two big races spoiled what would have been a celebratory Memorial Day for the military, which makes sponsorship of auto racing its top marketing tool. David Ragan, meanwhile, finished second in a Ford behind the Chevrolet of Harvick. Joey Logano was third in third in a Toyota, and Kurt Busch was fourth in a Dodge. AJ Allmendinger and Marcos Ambrose were fifth in sixth in Fords for Richard Petty Motorsports. Regan Smith was eighth in a Chevrolet, while the Toyotas of David Reutimann and Denny Hamlin rounded out the top 10. The finishing order wasn’t really indicative of how drivers managed the 600-mile race. Biffle and Kenseth probably had the best cars, but Biffle would up 13th and Kenseth was 14th because of the fuel issues. Kahne, who came back from a pit road speeding penalty to have a shot at the win, wound up 22nd. Kyle Busch led 55 laps, but had two late spins and finished 32nd.

Same for Harvick, who complained from the very first laps about the handling of his Chevrolet, some pit calls by crew chief Gil Martin and a debris caution from NASCAR that Harvick doubt-

ed was legitimate. But he somehow worked his way toward the front, and put himself in position to steal the win 500 yards from the finish. “We were lucky,” Harvick said from Victory Lane. “It’s nothing against the race track, I just don’t like racing here. It just doesn’t fit what I do. I griped and griped and griped all day long about how terrible it was. I just had a bad attitude.”

basketball squad. New faces streamed in steadily to the affair, keeping Robert Bowman, father of young basketball standout Michael Bowman, hopping on the grill. “My mother actually does this a lot,” explained Coach Mitchell, who was joined by five siblings and a small army of nieces and nephews. “When she cooks, she welcomes the whole community.” The towering rented water slide got a workout from excited youngsters, although the slide no doubt trembled at the arrival of muscular senior Javon Hargrave, a basketball and track standout who will play his best sport — football — at South Carolina State. At some point, Hargrave has sacked just about everyone in western North Carolina. “If Hargrave slides, that might be the last slide of the day, “quipped basketball assistant coach Tim Bates. “Hollywood” Hargrave is one of North’s double state champions, a sweet place to be after he toiled on a 7-17 basketball unit in 2009 and a 2008 football team that didn’t taste victory on the field. “We went through it all to get these state championships,” Hargrave said. “There were years of losing where we didn’t even make the playoffs.” Another double state champion is still uncommitted super senior Sam Starks. “It’s unbelievable to win two state championships, and I can appreciate it because it’s a feeling most people never get to experience,” Starks

Javon Hargrave completed a spectacular career. said. “It means a lot, especially getting to do it with guys I’ve known all my life. I’ve known these guys since we were so small that we just ran around without a ball.” Football star and basketball role player Amani Bates didn’t have much luck defending Hargrave on the 8-foot goal in the Mitchell’s driveway — without officials, pretty good flops go unrewarded — but he’s thankful he had a chance to be part of something very special his senior year. “Football didn’t turn out quite as well as we hoped, so I had to find another way,” Bates said. “We were able to win a basketball championship by playing defense and having faith in Coach Mitchell’s system.” T.J. Bates, North’s defensive stopper and Western Regional MVP, couldn’t resist picking up one of the halfdozen basketballs lying within reach, and he was soon dueling with 7-year-old R.J. Johnson, a shooter who looks like he could carry the Cavaliers to several more titles, starting in about 2019.

HARPER FROM 1B the Washington Nationals, who made him the first pick of last summer’s draft. He won’t turn 19 until October, but he’s thriving in the South Atlantic League where almost all the players are in their early 20s. “There’s a reason he was the first pick, and you saw it on that home run to dead center,” said Hagerstown manager Brian Daubach, who enjoyed four 20-homer seasons for the Boston Red Sox from 19992002. “Bryce has a ton of talent. He runs above average. He has a plus arm.” The long homer was the 11th for Harper, who’s been in a mini-slump. He still ranks among the SAL leaders in RBIs (35) and is batting a healthy .326. “Bryce is an absolute phenom,” said Hagerstown outfielder Wade Moore, the former West Rowan and Catawba star. “He can impact a game in so many ways.” Nationals fans understandably are antsy for Harper to climb the minor-league ladder and can’t believe he hasn’t already been promoted to Potomac, Va. “Bryce is a quick learner and learning every day, but

Bryce Harper (34) is welcomed to the dugout by Wade Moore. he’s making the defensive adjustment from catcher to outfield, and that’s a tough adjustment,” Daubach said. “He’s learning when to try to throw out a baserunner and when not to, and when to try for that extra base. What he needs most is game experience. He’s getting that.” Baseball fans are primarily fixated on Harper’s prodigious power from the left side. Scouts have compared his picturesque swing to that of Willie McCovey and Willie

Stargell, and he drilled a ball on May 12 in his home park against Delmarva that left people gasping in disbelief. “It was amazing,” said Holland, who has seen all of Harper’s games. “It was a grand slam, part of a six-RBI game, and it carried over two sets of signage.” Holland believes Harper’s bat is so lethal that his other skills may be under-rated. “I think his defense is way under the radar,” Holland said. “He’s made diving catch-

Johnson was hard to stop shoeless and shirtless. He was on fire after switching to his LeBron James jersey. A large banner proclaiming “Welcome State Champions” hung from the carport, and as each Cavalier proudly autographed that streamer with bold statements such as “T.J. Bates, No. 23, MVP,” it was apparent the comebacks, the cardiac-attacks and camaraderie of last March won’t be forgotten anytime soon. Obviously, it’s been an incredible school year in the county with seven state titles already in the books, and with East Rowan softball capable of bringing home No. 8 next week. North, seemingly on the ropes not long ago, has been a leader in that glorious charge. “ We’ve come through a lot,” Hargrave said. “It really has been an amazing year.” Cavaliers slowly trickled into Saturday’s celebration, giving Coach Mitchell a chance to get in the last word. “These guys are never early for anything,” he said with a laugh. “Except the gym.”

es, unbelievably strong throws. He’s had two outfield assists in the same game. Everybody talks about fivetool guys, but not many bigleague teams actually have them. Bryce is as five-toolsy as it gets.” Holland said Harper, who sported orange cleats, plays “like his hair is on fire,” an intensity that combines with his physical package to make him a unique prospect. Daubach said games like Saturday’s sluggish 10-5 win against the Intimidators are important to Harper’s development as a pro. “We played a doubleheader Friday, our wakeup call today was at 5 a.m., and then we had a long trip to get down here,” Daubach said. “Guys have to learn to still give 100 percent on days like this, even if they feel 85 percent. Bryce has great skills, but it’s the effort he brings that sets him apart.” Harper’s appearances generally trigger a media and fan circus that has to be tiresome, but he was accommodating on Saturday, signing patiently for each of the 40 or so fans who waited for him at the Hagerstown bus. “Bryce is a genuine guy,” Moore said. “For all his talent, he loves this game. He plays it the right way.”

the stands. Hogan popped up immediately as Bridges lay writhing in pain in the dirt. Bridges would not return to the game, but is expected to be all right. “We have a younger team this season and lost some key C. BRIDGES guys from last year’s team, but I just told the guys that I am going to continue to keep teaching and coaching and I expect them to continue putting in the hard work that we will need to make us a better team,” Lowman said. Coming back to action for South from the college ranks was Maverick Miles. Miles went 2-for-5 with an RBI and admittedly described the rust he felt from a delay from baseball. “I am a little rusty but I felt good out there in the field, just chased a bunch of high pitches stupidly that I usually don’t go after,” he said. Mooresville improves to (1-1) after a heartbreaking defeat at Kernersville Saturday as they lost in 10 innings 4-3. “We have a young team of guys that haven’t played Legion ball before,” Mooresville coach Josh Graham said. “And since we got split up, we are still trying to find the right lineup and chemistry with these guys, much like coach Lowman is, I’m sure.” Mooresville received a strong from performance from hurler Keith Little, who tossed six innings and minimized the damage to four runs. “I was feeling good, didn’t have my best stuff,” Little said. “but was able to work out of jams and the guys picked me up in the field with timely hits at the plate as they delivered some big two-out base hits that scored runs for us.” • NOTE: These two teams have no time to be strangers, as they will turn right around and play each other again, this time at South, tonight at 7 p.m.

Sabathia has Mariners’ number Associated Press

SEATTLE — Even though it came on a day CC Sabathia didn’t need much, he's not going to complain about the run support he's been receiving. So far, at least, his teammates aren’t giving him grief about it. “I don’t think anybody has realized it yet, but I know,” Sabathia said. The Yankees ace continued his domination of the Seattle Mariners on Sunday, allowing just one run in eight innings, and Andruw Jones provided the big blow with a bases-clearing double as New York avoided a three-game sweep with a 7-1 win. Sabathia (6-3) was again the Yankees stopper. He won for the third time in four tries when pitching after a loss, allowing just two hits through five innings before giving up a solo homer to Seattle’s Justin Smoak in the sixth inning. He also won for the sixth straight time against the Mariners and improved to 8-1 in 11 starts at Safeco Field. In his last six starts against Seattle, Sabathia has a 0.82 ERA.

Said property to be offered pursuant to this Notice of Sale is being offered for sale, transfer and conveyance "AS IS WHERE IS." There are no representations of warranty relating to the title or any physical, environmental, health or safety conditions existing in, on, at, or relating to the property being offered for sale. This sale is made subject to all prior liens, unpaid taxes, any unpaid land transfer taxes, special assessments, easements, rights of way, deeds of release, and any other encumbrances or exceptions of record. To the best of the knowledge and belief of the undersigned, the current owner(s) of the property is/are Joshua Jonathan Youker and wife, Karen Marie Youker. An Order for possession of the property may be issued pursuant to G.S. 45-21.29 in favor of the purchaser and against the party or parties in possession by the clerk of superior court of the county in which the property is sold. Any person who occupies the property pursuant to a rental agreement entered into or renewed on or after October 1, 2007, may, after receiving the notice of sale, terminate the rental agreement upon 10 days' written notice to the landlord. The notice shall also state that upon termination of a rental agreement, the tenant is liable for rent due under the rental agreement prorated to the effective date of the termination. If the trustee is unable to convey title to this property for any reason, the sole remedy of the purchaser is the return of the deposit. Reasons of such inability to convey include, but are not limited to, the filing of a bankruptcy petition prior to the confirmation of the sale and reinstatement of the loan without the knowledge of the trustee.

Rare disorder causes chronic skin condition The cause is not currently known but is thought to be an abnormal immune response. About half of all sufferers have an underlying immune disorder. Health conditions that may be related include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, vasculitis, leukemia, sarcoidosis, hepatitis and, particularly, inflammatory-bowel diseases, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Lesions typically start as one or more small, red bumps that can resemble a spider bite that progresses to become a painful, open wound with a reddish-purple border. Other symptoms include a general feeling of poor health, achy joints and bone pain. Scarring is common. If an underlying health condition is associated with pyoderma gangrenosum,

treating it may help control the sores, but often direct treatment of the ulcers will also be necessary. The primary course of action is oral steroids, which reduce inflammation and somewhat suppress the immune system. Mild cases may require only topical steroids. Because side effects are common, it is important to use the lowest dosage that provides results for the shortest period of time. Other drugs include immunosuppresant medications, tumor necrosis factor inhibitors, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and high-dose intravenous immunoglobin. Surgery isn’t commonly considered an option because skin trauma, including surgical incisions, may worsen existing lesions and/or cause

new ones to develop. In cases of severe ulceration, skin grafting or debriding (cleaning away dead skin/tissue) can be beneficial but must be done carefully, preferably by a skilled surgeon familiar with pyoderma gangrenosum. With treatment, healing typically occurs within several months. Without it, the sores may remain the same, worsen or heal even more slowly than those with treatment. Sufferers should be gentle with their skin and take care to avoid injury. It is important to follow your physician’s care instructions in order to speed healing and reduce scarring.

A horror story starts the stories BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

Sir Laurens Jan van der Post, an Afrikaner author and, inter alia, godfather of Prince William, said, “Human beings are perhaps never more frightening than when they are convinced beyond doubt that they are right.” Recently I played in and ran social games in which strange bids and plays arose. Often the post-mortem analysis was ... well, frightening. In today’s deal, you have the South hand. You open one spade, and partner raises to

two spades. What would you do now? You get five shortage points for your void because you have at least a nine-card fit. So you could jump to four spades. But you might have a slam. It is best to rebid three diamonds, a help-suit game-try, hoping partner shows enthusiasm. (Here, North should rebid four clubs, which says that he is bidding game, has good diamonds, and holds the club ace.) Alternatively, you could jump to four clubs, a splinter bid that ought to show a void since partner is weak and you couldn’t open two clubs.

What happened at the table? South passed over two spades! West naively balanced with a takeout double. Now North should have rebid three diamonds, which would have given them a chance at the best contract of six diamonds. (Note that six spades fails if West leads the diamond ace and gives his partner a diamond ruff.) But North passed. East advanced with three clubs, South passed, West passed, North competed with three spades, and South passed again. It made six on a club lead. In the post-mortem, neither

cause the brain is the dysfunctioning organ in this illness, the person has no insight into the condition and, thus, refuses to help. Most mentally ill people know how to “shape up” when appearing before a judge so it’s difficult to have the person deemed a “danger to themselves or others,” which is the criteria for forced treatment in most states. The tragic part is the fine line between dangerous and non-dangerous and, way too often, the first evidence that would enable this classification causes death or injury to an innocent person or a mentally ill person. I would recommend that parents attend a support group in their area for families of the mentally ill. A good place to start is Dear Reader: You are correct that forcing treatment

Federer sets record


Associated Press

PARIS — Roger Federer set another Grand Slam record Sunday, extending his quarterfinal streak at major tournaments to 28 with a 6-3, 6-2, 7-5 victory over Olympic gold medal doubles partner Stanislas Wawrinka at the French Open. The 16-time major champion, who completed a career Grand Slam at Roland Garros in 2009, improved on the mark he shared with Jimmy Connors. The last time Federer failed to reach the quarterfinals at a major was at the 2004 French Open, when he was the top-seeded player but lost to Gustavo Kuerten in the third round. “Twenty-eight quarterfinals in a row, that’s great,” Federer said. “But that’s another opportunity for me to go one step further.” Also Sunday, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova knocked out the highest seeded player remaining in the women’s draw, beating No. 3 Vera Zvonareva 7-6 (4), 2-6, 6-2 to earn a spot in the quarterfinals. Later, Novak Djokovic puts his perfect season on the line. On the women’s side, defending champion Francesca Schiavone and No. 10 Jelena Jankovic are scheduled to be in action. Federer again dominated with his serve in his match on Court Philippe Chatrier . He was broken once early in the third set, but broke back twice to remain one of the four players to have won every match in straight sets. “I was playing with the wind against me, and it was a bad game because all of a sudden there was more wind, and I had the feeling that I was playing against the wind and not against Stan,” Federer said. “So in the end I made wrong decisions.” Federer also beat Wawrinka, his Davis Cup teammate, in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open. In 2008, the Swiss pair teamed up to win the doubles gold at the Beijing Olympics. “In the third set I had a few

Besides his record 16 major titles, Federer also set a record of 23 straight Grand Slam semifinal appearances. That run ended at last year’s French Open, when he was beaten in the quarterfinals. Federer set his quarterfinal streak in 28 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments, while Connors skipped some in his run. In the next round, Federer will face either No. 7 David Ferrer or No. 9 Gael Monfils. Fabio Fognini also reached the quarterfinals, the first Italian to advance that far at Roland Garros since 1995. The unseeded Fognini overcame a cramping left leg and five match points to defeat Albert Montanes of Spain 4-6, 6-4, 36, 6-3, 11-9. The third-seeded Zvonareva followed No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki and No. 2 Kim Clijsters out of the tournament after losing to Pavlyuchenkova, at 19 the youngest player still in the tournament. Wozniacki and Clijsters both lost in the third round. No. 4 Victoria Azarenka of Belarus is now the highest seeded player left. “I’m just trying to do my thing, focusing on me. ... The rest, I don’t really care,” Pavlyuchenkova said of the upsets of top contenders.

It is only the third time that none of the top three seeded women has reached the quarterfinals at a Grand Slam tournament in the Open era, which began in 1968, and the first time at the French Open. It also happened at Wimbledon in 2008 — when the top four were eliminated by the end of the fourth round — and at the Australian Open in 1997. Zvonareva reached the Wimbledon and U.S. Open finals last year and the Australian Open semifinals in January. She saved two match points in the final game against Pavlyuchenkova before hitting a forehand long on the third. “Well, that’s, I guess, part of the game. I know what I have to work on and what I have to improve,” said Zvonareva, who saved a match point in the second round before advancing. “Of course when you play less than 50 percent of your potential, it’s very tough to win the fourth round of a Grand Slam.” For the 14th-seeded Pavlyuchenkova, the result is her best at a Grand Slam tournament. Previously, she reached the fourth round at least year’s U.S. Open. “She (Zvonareva) was up with a break, so I think maybe in the past or last year I wouldn’t believe I can win this match against that top player,” Pavlyuchenkova said. “This time I think that was the main key.”

A late spring storm system will bring more wet and windy weather to the West this Memorial Day. A mix of rain and wet snow with thunderstorms will continue over parts of the Northern Intermountain West, Central Great Basin, and the Northern and Central Rockies. Heavy wet snow in the higher elevations will reduce visibilities, making travel conditions difficult for those outdoors. Meanwhile, periods of heavy rain and recent snow melt will raise more flood concerns in parts of the Northern Intermountain West. To the south, gusty winds, warm temperatures, and low relative humidity values will maintain fire weather conditions in the Southwest. To the east, the low pressure system in the Central Rockies will lift into the Northern Plains Monday while it\'s associated warm front lifts northward into the Northern Plains and the Upper Great Lakes. Showers, periods of heavy rain, and thunderstorms will form to the north of this boundary in parts of Upper Midwest. There is a moderate risk of severe thunderstorm development from southeastern North Dakota, eastern South Dakota, northeastern Nebraska into much of west-central/southwestern Minnesota and northwestern Iowa. Severe storms in these areas may produce very large hail, damaging winds, and a few strong tornadoes. There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorm development surrounding the moderate risk area from the eastern Dakotas and Minnesota southwestward to the Southern Plains. While the primary threats with severe storms in these areas will be large hail and damaging wind, tornado formation may be possible. Elsewhere, a weak cold front will move through the Northeast with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Meanwhile, Memorial Day will likely mark the start of the first heat wave of the season for the Delaware Valley. Daytime highs in the area will climb into the 90s and heat indices are expected to reach near the century mark through the mid-week.
