REMEMBERING FALLEN HEROES

Scientists warn of unseen disaster

Researchers find massive underwater plumes of oil

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Independent scientists and government officials say there’s a disaster we can’t see in the Gulf of Mexico’s mysterious depths, the ruin of a world inhabited by enormous sperm whales and tiny, invisible plankton. Researchers have said they have found at least two massive underwater plumes of what appears to be oil, each hundreds of feet deep and stretching for miles. Yet the chief executive of BP PLC — which has for weeks downplayed everything from the amount of oil spewing into the Gulf to the environmental impact — said there is “no evidence” that huge amounts of oil are suspended undersea. BP CEO Tony Hayward said the oil naturally gravitates to the surface — and any oil below was just making its way up. However, researchers say the disaster in waters where light doesn’t shine through could ripple across the food chain. “Every fish and invertebrate contacting the oil is probably dying. I have no doubt about that,” said Prosanta Chakrabarty, a Louisiana State University fish biologist. On the surface, a 24-hour camera fixed on the spewing, blown-out well and the images of dead, oil-soaked birds have been evidence of the calamity. At least 20 million gallons of oil and possibly 43 million gallons have spilled since the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded and sank in April. That has far eclipsed the 11 million gallons released during the Exxon Valdez spill off Alaska’s coast in 1989. But there is no camera to capture what happens in the rest of the vast Gulf, which sprawls across 600,000 square miles and reaches more than 14,000 feet at its deepest point. Every night, the denizens of the deep make forays to shallower depths to eat — and be eaten by — other fish, according to marine scientists who describe it as the largest migration on earth. In turn, several species closest to the surface — including red snapper, shrimp and menhaden — help drive the Gulf Coast fishing industry. Others such as marlin, cobia and yellowfin tuna sit atop the food chain and are chased by the Gulf’s charter fishing fleet. Many of those species are now in their annual spawning seasons. Eggs exposed to oil would quickly perish. Those that survived to hatch could

Across Salisbury on Memorial Day, everyday residents stopped to pay their respects to those who died in service to their country. At the historic National Cemetery downtown, the color guard of the Sons of Union Veterans marched in solemnly. And, as the notes of “Taps” sounded, young and old alike looked on at the flags and the stones that honor both those who died at war and those who returned home after serving. “I feel it’s my duty,” said Craig Hipkins, who was there with his 6-year-old son Robbie.

Robbie held a small U.S. flag as he stood by his father’s side. Craig, himself a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, is the great-great-grandson of a Union soldier, George Sullivan. Sullivan emigrated from Ireland and settled in Massachusetts. Today, Craig said, he wants his son to know not just about his family’s military heritage, but about those who died to protect freedom. “If it weren’t for them, we wouldn’t be enjoying the liberties we had today. That’s something I’m trying to instill in him.” There and at the newer National Cemetery annex at the

President, vice president honor America’s troops ELWOOD, Ill. (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden hailed America’s fighting men and women Monday as the “spine of this nation,” while President Barack Obama’s Land of Lincoln tribute got washed out by a severe thunderstorm and high winds. Biden made the more traditional appearance at Arlington National Cemetery on Obama’s behalf, saying the country has “a sacred obligation” to make sure its servicemen and women are the best equipped and best-supported troops in the world. “As a nation, we pause to remember them,” Biden said. “They gave their lives fulfilling their oath to this nation and to us.” Obama had readied a similar message of gratitude for his appearance at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Illinois, and actually had taken the podium to give the address when the skies opened up with a quintessentially midwestern late-spring downpour — thunder, lightning and high winds. Under the cover of a large umbrella, he told thousands gathered before him that while “a little rain never hurt anybody,” nobody wanted “anybody struck by lightning.” He asked people to return to their cars for their safety, and he retreated briefly to an administration building on the ceme-

tery’s grounds. Obama a few minutes later boarded a pair of buses to greet military families that came for the event. Within the hour, reporters who accompanied Obama to the cemetery in Elwood, Ill., were told the speech had been called off. The White House had released copies of Obama’s prepared remarks in advance of his talk, but they were pulled back when the event had to be canceled. Before the storm hit, and in advance of his appearance at the podium, Obama had visited a section of headstones where two Marines awaited him. After laying a wreath, he bowed his head in a moment of silence, his hands tightly clasped. Then a lone bugler played Taps. After leaving the cemetery, Obama met privately with families of veterans and service members currently living at the Fisher House in Hines, Ill. It serves as a home away from home for family members whose loved ones are getting treatment at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Hines, which is about 12 miles west of downtown Chicago. At Arlington, Biden carried out the traditional wreath-laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns under a brilliant sunshine. The vice president, accompanied by Adm. Mike Mullen, chair-

that the ceremony has been held at the new cemetery annex. “With community support, each year this gets bigger and bigger,” cemetery director Gregory Whitney said. He estimated attendance, including volunteers, at more than 350 people. Whitney said that Memorial Day celebrations are especially poignant because so many of the veterans who volunteer with local groups like the American Legion are themselves aging. Older veterans often attend alongside uniformed military personnel not only at memorials like Monday’s ceremony, but at graveside services for veterans who have

That makes it more dangerous to fish larvae and creatures that are filter feeders. Responding to Hayward’s assertion, one researcher noted that scientists from several different universities have come to similar conclusions about the plumes after doing separate testing.

Benham said he was there so his grandson, 6-year-old Cameron, could know about his family’s history and about the sacrifices of those who died. Tricia and Mark Moss of Snow Camp, near Burlington, drove down to the National Cemetery so that their sons, Jonah and Ian, could witness the real meaning of Memorial Day. “People of our generation think of this day as a day to go shopping,” Tricia said. “But I think this should definitely be a day that we stop and think ...

two Exxon Valdez spills every year, according to a 2000 report from government and academic researchers. Microbes that live in the water break down the oil. The number of microbes that grow in response to the more concentrated BP spill could tip that system out of balance, LSU oceanographer Mark Benfield said. Too many microbes in the sea could suck oxygen from the water, creating an uninhabitable hypoxic area, or “dead zone.” Preliminary evidence of increased hypoxia in the Gulf was seen during an early May cruise aboard the R/V Pelican, carrying researchers from the University of Georgia, the University of Mississippi and the University of Southern Mississippi.

Dispersing the oil lower into the water column protects beaches, but also keeps it in cooler waters where oil does not break down as fast. That could prolong the oil’s potential to poison fish, said Larry McKinney, director of the Harte Research Institute at Texas A&M UniversityCorpus Christi. “There’s a school of thought that says we’ve made it worse because of the dispersants,” he said.

What is known is that by breaking down oil into smaller droplets, dispersants reduce the oil’s buoyancy, slowing or stalling the crude’s rise to the surface and making it harder to track the spill.

Paul Rieckhoff, founder and executive director of the group Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, said Arlington is the focal point of the nation’s and military’s attention on Memorial Day. “When he’s not here, it doesn’t look like he’s on the same page,� Rieckhoff said. Rieckhoff said U.S. service men and women need Obama to use the bully pulpit to remind people that the holiday is not about going to the beach or barbecuing. “We think that he has an obligation to really bridge the divide between the military

and the rest of the population.� “We appreciate that the vice president is going to be here, but it’s not the same,� Rieckhoff said. Jay Agg, a spokesman for the veterans group AMVETS, said the annual ceremony at Arlington is “the ideal place for the president to observe Memorial Day. However, his choice to honor our fallen at another national cemetery as other presidents have done is entirely appropriate.� In an e-mail, Agg accused some people of using the day “as an opportunity to score cheap political points on the backs of our veterans and in doing so dishonor them and distract from the true meaning and purpose of Memorial Day.�

The crew transforms BeBop's Restaurant in China Grove into a scene for the movie 'Insecurity.' The movie, based on a book by local doctor Eric Troyer, is being shot in Rowan and Cabarrus counties for three weeks.

Lights, camera, action Movie based on local author’s novel films at BeBop’s; Meat Loaf among actors in town Monday BY HUGH FISHER

hfisher@salisburypost.com

CHINA GROVE — Wayne Bradshaw didn’t know what to expect when Jason King, location manager for the film “Insecurity,” contacted him about filming at his BeBop’s diner. The first trucks rolled in about 3 a.m. Monday, and after lunchtime crews transformed the diner into a movie set. “Now I know why it costs so much to get into movies” he joked as he watched a crew of about 60 go about their business. By afternoon, cameras were rolling, helping make another local man’s dream a reality. “Insecurity” is based on the novel of the same name that Eric Troyer, a China Grove physician, wrote and published in 2008. It’s being made into a movie starring Eddie Furlong, Meat Loaf, Ed Asner and Grace Johnston. “This has been a thrill,” Troyer said as he sat in a booth at BeBop’s, watching crews make the final preparations for the shoot. Troyer said the project has taken a lot of time and effort, but it’s been worth it. He has collaborated with screenwriter and director Heather Hale to make the film. “It’s incredible, watching the characters come to life and realizing the power of your

As you’d expect, BeBop’s is being used as a diner in the film, where the characters played by Meat Loaf, Furlong and Johnston discuss their next move. Bradshaw said he was contacted by King, and discussed the project with Hale, weeks ago. They planned the shoot for Memorial Day when the restaurant could close without affecting business too much. Decorations were taken down, tables moved and some of the signage rearranged to meet the needs of the movie.

And some locals were brought in to be extras, including Sherry Bradshaw, Wayne’s wife, and two BeBop’s waitresses. For Jennifer Leon, who never has been involved in acting, the chance to appear even in a small way was interesting. She and fellow waitress Kristi Bame serve food and coffee to the characters. Sherry Bradshaw was set to play a cashier. The Bradshaws and others stood out of the way while cameras rolled. “We were kind of skeptical at first,” Sherry said — unsure

what sort of movie it might turn out to be. Even more interesting was the transformation of the restaurant. Several booths became “video village,” where computer equipment and monitors were standing by. A special track was put down for camera dollies to run on. And, because of copyrights and licensing, a lot of the decorations that normally line the walls had to come down. But the crew took photos of the restaurant before filming so that everything could go back to its original state afterward. Locals who watch the movie will want to keep a lookout for the familiar scene, but Troyer said they’ll love the story for its message. Although some elements differ from his novel, Troyer said, the movie has a very strong moral lesson. He described Johnny Graham, played by Furlong, as “a modern-day Moses.”

FORT BRAGG (AP) — The U.S. Army Special Forces Command remembered 18 Special Forces soldiers lost in combat last year. The 42nd annual Special Forces Memorial Day ceremony was held Monday at the Army Special Operations Forces Plaza. Maj. Gen. Michael S. Repass memorialized the 18 Special Forces Soldiers who were killed in action and 90 Special Forces Association members who have died during the past year. “These men were the best, the first, the strongest, the fastest, the most adventurous and yes, the craziest. They were successful before they ever joined our ranks. You can only conclude that their small town upbringing, tight communities, and families that supported the soldier were responsible for much of their success once they became a Special Forces operator,” Repass said. The general also praised the soldiers’ widows because “they confront dark days every day and somehow they keep it together and move forward.” Repass commands about 10,000 soldiers in the Army’s five active-duty groups and two National Guard groups. After the speech, Repass placed a wreath near the Special Forces Memorial statue with Ronnie McCan, president of the Special Forces Association. “We do this to make sure we honor all those who have served, from the Vietnam War to the Cold War and our soldiers lost in the current wars,” McCan said. The ceremony concluded with the firing of a three volley salute and the playing of Taps.

McCrory works to remain visible in N.C. politics RALEIGH (AP) — Pat McCrory’s calendar seems penciled with listings for someone ready for a rematch with Gov. Beverly Perdue. McCrory, who stepped down as Charlotte mayor after 16 years last fall, has become a popular speaker statewide on the Republican Party’s chicken dinner circuit, headlining many GOP fundraisers. He’s been a frequent visitor on local and even national television political roundtables after narrowly losing to Perdue in November 2008. Now he has started a political action committee to raise money for legislative candidates and highlight issues he promoted in the 2008 race, including transportation, criminal justice and getting rid of what he called “a culture of corruption” in state government. “North Carolina state government is in a mess,” the 53-year-old McCrory said in a video announcing his New Leadership PAC and identifying Democrats, including Perdue, whom he believes are part of the problem. “It’s time for new leadership in our state and it must start now in 2010.” What about 2012? McCrory said in an interview he’s going to strongly consider a repeat gubernatorial bid. A longtime observer of his political career is more certain. “He’s going to run for governor,” said Ted Arrington, a political science professor at University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

Many friends come from as far away as Lexington, and nearly 20 families are now represented. “We don’t care if we know you or not, we’re just glad to have you,” said Janet Lane. The official title is the Wiffle Ball World Series, and it is a throwback to years ago when

neighbors spent time together, and visited often. “People just don’t do this kind of thing anymore, ” said Tonya Rhodes of Lexington. She attends because her boyfriend Paul Moore used to work with Kenny. Kenny gets emotional when he talks about two uncles who were killed in World War II. His dad lost them as a young child and they were his heroes. Now Kenny wishes that he had just been able to know them, but wants others to understand their sacrifices and what they mean to those who gathered to play the game Sunday. The scoreboard is named after his uncles, Albert and Wendell. Kenny lives in Grace Ridge and currently works as the Civic Center Manager for the city of Statesville after many years at Salisbury Parks and Recreation. Traditionally, the Memorial Day weekend also means the beginning of summer and the end of the school year. Kenny remembers

growing up in a quiet Charlotte cul-de-sac that made the perfect wiffle ball field. He also knew that there would be plenty of time in the summer to play, hitting the balls while hoping to clear the power lines, which would signify a home run. In an effort to relive that same excitement, Wiffle Ball Commissioner Roberts began the festive day with a heated Home Run Derby. Patrick Stufflet won with a dominating left-handed power swing that easily cleared the 126 foot right field road several times. Last year’s winner, Chipper Thomas, presented the trophy while reminding Patrick that his total would have been higher had the pitching been better. The playing field itself is special with many innovations provided by Roberts and Casey. There was a large target hanging in a tree that would prompt a $20 payoff should it be hit. Just behind

Special awards are given to further highlight the day. There is a ‘Rookie of the Year’ award given to the best of those who have not played before. A ‘Red, White, and Blue Glove’ award goes to the best defensive player. Finally, the ‘Sara Culbert’ award goes to Sara just for showing up. Other enhancements included an inflatable bounce house and a very popular ‘slip and slide’. Ten-year-old Evan Bamford gave his insights on why the Wiffle Ball World Series at the Field of Dreams is so popular. “It is easier than baseball. It is still challenging, but I am better than a couple of the adults,” he said. “The most fun is when somebody gets hit by the ball. We plan on doing it again on the Fourth of July. But I still don’t understand why Sara gets an award just for showing up” Speaking of the wiffle balls, I was amazed that a wiffle ball can travel 200

ACTION FROM 4A

Graham is placed in a witness protection program after being involved in an organized crime family. But the program is compromised, and he finds himself on the run. “My hope is it’s a very exciting, thrilling movie to a mainstream audience and a meaningful film for a Christian audience,” Hale said. “Every turning point is a crisis decision, not necessarily a crisis of faith so much as a man rediscovering his ethics.” She expects the film to receive a PG-13 rating. Hale and Troyer began collaborating two years ago when Troyer decided to try to make his book into a movie. Both said they were pleased to have found a wellknown cast to bring “Insecurity” to the screen. And all three of the actors who came to town Monday said they were glad to be a part of the project. “Everybody’s awesome,” said Furlong, whose credits include the part of young John Connor in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” and as Shane Casey on “CSI: New York.” “I just try to make it real for each scene. I’m in the company of great actors,” Furlong said of his role as Johnny. Although he’s a platinumselling rock ‘n’ roll singer, Meat Loaf was very down-toearth about his part in the film. “I love making films. Anytime I can be a part of a project, I love it,” he said. Meat Loaf portrays an undercover U.S. Marshal in the movie. “I like this guy because I get to play two different kinds of distinct personalities.” he said. “He’s got a bit of Columbo.” But it was Johnston who was the most taken with Rowan County. During her stay, she’s experienced Cheerwine and ranchburgers from What-aBurger, and loved both. “This was my first time in North Carolina. It’s beyond what I expected,” she said. Johnston’s early roles included a part in the Bette Midler movie “Beaches.” She played the young daughter of Hillary Essex, Barbara Hershey’s character. More recently, she’s starred in “Once More with Feeling” and an episode of “The Closer,” among others. “The people here are extremely nice,” Johnston said.

feet. Most of us know of a wiffle ball as something that doesn’t go far no matter how hard it is hit. Commissioner Roberts admits to juicing the balls just a little. In fact, he is a little too proud of it. In keeping with the real meaning of the weekend, the biggest highlight of the day is the much anticipated flyover of the military F-18’s. Roberts even put it in the event schedule, feeling fairly confident that the World Series of Wiffle Ball had enough clout to get the flyover. “Either that or there is some big event down at Charlotte. We’re glad they could make it” said Roberts. It did come about 30 minutes after the singing of the “Star Spangled Banner” and the start of the actual game. Speaking of the game, Roberts’ Blue team won for the third straight year. Final score was 30-27 after seven innings. Roberts threatened to call the game when his team got ahead, but he did let in play out. During a postgame celebration, Roberts admitted “It is a lot of fun playing wiffle ball with family and friends. But to me, it means much more. I just want everyone to remember the true meaning of Memorial Day and why we can have gatherings like this.”

“Insecurity” will continue shooting in the area during the next two weeks. One scene is set to be shot at the Gem Theater in Kannapolis. Asner, who was not in town Monday, will visit later to film a scene at a private home in Salisbury. The independent film does not yet have a distributor, Troyer said. It falls under the Screen Actors Guild’s modified lowbudget category, denoting a movie with a budget of less than $625,000. Troyer declined to say how much the actual budget was. But, having invested his own money in making the movie, he said he hopes it will touch people’s lives. “It’s been overwhelming at times,” Troyer said. “I’m focusing on the fact that this is possibly a oncein-a-lifetime experience.” But, he added, he hopes this is just the first of more movies he’ll make.

North Carolinians scramble to get exclusive state $2 bills Restricted release gives just 1 out of every 1,291 households an opportunity to get the entire State $2 Bill Collection™ By Joan Tedeschi

Universal Media Syndicate

N NEVER BEFORE SEEN: This is the new North Carolina state overlaid $2 bill that few have ever seen and everyone is scrambling to get. The World Reserve Monetary Exchange has restricted the release of its exclusive State $2 Bill Collection™, so getting one would make you as happy as hitting the lottery.

Most Americans have never even seen a government issued $2 bill, let alone the new never before seen state $2 bills being overlaid and released exclusively by the World Reserve Monetary Exchange. According to Thomas C. Harris, former Deputy Director of the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing and consultant for the privately held World Reserve, “Less than 1% of all U.S. Government notes currently produced are $2 bills.” And finding one of the exclusive 50 state $2 bills will be even more difficult. That’s because it has just been announced that the release of the entire new State $2 Bill Collection™ has been restricted. That means only 1 out of every 1,291 U.S. households will even have a chance to get them all. With this new State $2 Bill Collection™ now underway, North Carolinians are expected to snatch up all they can while they can still get their hands on them. N

Just 48 hours left for local residents to get the only existing North Carolina state $2 bills

Private hoard of never before seen state $2 bills being released for the next 48 hours, only in 4 packs of protective estate wallets each loaded with its own North Carolina state $2 bill for just $12 per wallet By R.K. Berry

Universal Media Syndicate

UMS – It’s like a run on the banks. The phones just keep ringing off the hook. That’s because North Carolina residents can only get the World Reserve’s never before seen North Carolina state overlaid $2 bills for the next 48 hours. All residents have to do is call 1-888-769-2827 or one of the five Overflow Hotlines to get their new state bills. These special Toll Free Hotlines have been set up because you can’t get these exclusive bills at local banks, credit unions or even the Federal Reserve. They’re being banded in packs of four and released directly to North Carolina residents exclusively by the World Reserve. These crisp U.S. $2 bills featuring the exclusively designed North Carolina state overlaid printing are so precious you would never even dream of carrying them around in an ordinary leather wallet. That’s why they are being released in individually loaded rich protective estate wallets. They are so impressive, everyone will swear they must have been taken right from the Governor’s desk. “Everything in our vault may soon be gone. So residents who want to get them now had better hurry and call,” said Jefferson Marshall, Executive Director of the World Reserve Monetary Exchange. Some collectors are always trying to snatch up all the $2 bills issued by the Government they can get their hands on. They know that $2 bills are almost impossible to find in your pocket change these days. Originally issued in 1928, the currently designed $2 bills have largely been locked away in the bowels of the U.S. Federal Reserve vaults, rarely distributed by banks and almost never seen in circulation. The $2 bills issued by the Treasury Department’s Bureau of Engraving and Printing, makers of all of the nation’s paper currency, make up less than 1% of the $670 billion in genuine U.S. currency that circulates worldwide, according to the U.S. Department of Treasury. “That’s why I’ve authorized a limited number of genuine Government issued $2 bills to be overlaid with the North Carolina state printing and released from our private vault reserve to the residents of the great state of North Carolina. Non-residents can’t have the vault packs of these North Carolina state $2 bills,” Marshall said. “These exclusive North Carolina state

$2 bills will be highly sought after and are extremely popular to hand out as gifts for friends and family. They are the perfect gift for any occasion,” he said. “That’s why this announcement is being so widely advertised, to make sure every North Carolina resident has a chance to get their own state $2 bill,” said Marshall. They are sure to impress because most people have never even seen one of these newly enhanced state $2 bills featuring a plane and the Charlotte cityscape with President Thomas Jefferson on the front. “Since these are the only existing North Carolina state $2 bills, anyone who wants more than 10 sealed vault packs of 4 bills in protective estate wallets must submit requests in writing so there will be no hoarding by dealers,” said Marshall. “You better believe we will be strictly enforcing the limits so that we can guarantee there will be at least 10 vault packs for North Carolinians who call in the next 48 hours,” Marshall said. N

N LIMITED RELEASE BEGINS: Above is the never before seen entire 50 State $2 Bill Collection™ shown off by the World Reserve. You can’t get these exclusive state $2 bills from local banks, credit unions or even the Federal Reserve. Dealers and collectors who are lucky enough to find them are sure to be charging a hefty premium to let them go. But getting the entire 50 State $2 Bill Collection™ may be hard, since the release is being restricted. That’s why the World Reserve Monetary Exchange has also decided to release all 50 states together in one complete collection to residents who beat the deadline by calling 1-888-769-2827 in the next 48 hours.

HOW NORTH CAROLINA RESIDENTS CAN GET THEIR STATE $2 BILLS NORTH CAROLINA RESIDENTS ONLY The special Toll Free Hotlines are open to North Carolina residents only. Residents have just 48 hours to get their North Carolina state $2 bills beginning at 8:00am today. If you miss the deadline you’ll be turned away and forced to wait for future announcements in this publication or others, if any. The World Reserve Monetary Exchange is only releasing the never before seen North Carolina state overlaid $2 bills banded together in packs of 4, each in its own protective estate wallet, for just $12 per wallet and shipping to residents of North Carolina only. There is a strict limit of 10 North Carolina state $2 bill vault packs per household. To claim yours call the special Toll Free Hotline numbers below.

Hurricane lull has some in southeast N.C. worried WILMINGTON (AP) — Fourteen years after Hurricane Fran ripped through southeastern North Carolina, emergency officials say buildings and homes in the region are better prepared for the next big storm. But they aren’t as sure about the residents. Hurricane season began Monday, and after dealing with four hurricanes in three years in the late 1990s, the area around Wilmington hasn’t been struck directly since 1999. The past decade has seen another growth spurt in coastal communities like Carolina Beach and Topsail Island, the StarNews of Wilmington reports.

But the new growth has come with stricter building codes. Rules requiring deeper pilings for elevated coastal buildings appeared to be a success when Hurricane Fran came ashore with 115 mph winds in 1996. Newer homes built within a quarter-mile of the ocean also have to have storm shutters for windows and doors, said Spencer Rogers, a coastal engineering expert with N.C. Sea Grant. However, the beach at Topsail Island has changed quite a bit since Fran. No largescale beach nourishment work has been done recently, leaving many structures along the ocean on the edge of the escarpment, and on the north

end of the island, there are no dunes or escarpment at all. The passage of time also has dulled memories of Fran and other storms. Surveys conducted in the region several years ago showed residents overestimated the chances of being struck by a hurricane and underestimated the damage a storm can do, said Chris Dumas, an environmental economist with the University of North Carolina Wilmington. One reason could be while the rains from a hurricane often drench a wide area, only a narrow patch of land north and east of the hurricane’s center go through the worst winds and storm surge. “They

think they’d experienced something that they actually hadn’t experienced,” Dumas said. Rickey Smith has been dealing with storms on Topsail Island for 25 years, first as police chief and now as the interim town manager. He tells anyone he can to take any hurricane seriously, but worries the longer things stay quiet, the more he gets ignored. “After we had one bad storm, we had no problems with evacuations for the next three or four storms,” Smith said. “But we know that won’t be the case next time because we haven’t had one for a long time, and people just don’t know what they can do.”

MILL SPRING (AP) — Rescuers say a father and son drowned in a North Carolina lake after they jumped in and saved a young child from drowning. Multiple media outlets report the men were on a boat Sunday afternoon on Lake Adger when the girl fell in the water. Authorities say the father and his adult son jumped in and rescued the girl, but the pair couldn’t make it out of the water for reasons they haven’t figured out. The names of the two men have not been released.

Woman killed on side of road as her son watches WINSTON-SALEM (AP) — Police say a man fatally attacked a woman on the side of a North Carolina road while their 6-year-old son watched. Davidson County Sheriff David Grice told multiple media outlets that 54-year-old Beresford Campbell was arrested shortly after the attack Sunday morning. Grice says 48-year-old Beverly Wiley was found lying just off the road, bleeding from several wounds. The sheriff says an off-duty police officer managed to take Campbell into custody and give first aid to Wiley. Grice says the couple had a son who was in the car when his mother was attacked, but he was not injured. It wasn’t immediately clear if Campbell had an attorney.

The reasons for the change in its fate include the museum’s bookkeeping and funding cuts. The museum’s board of trustees voted earlier this month to shut down rather than accumulate more debt. Museum executive director Tom Grubb says the closing is a sign that the arts aren’t healthy in Fayetteville. Summer art classes that were nearly full also have been canceled, along with children’s programs.

3 killed when car runs off road in mountains MORGANTON (AP) — Three people have died after a driver lost control of his car, running off a mountainous North Carolina road and slamming into a tree. State troopers told The Charlotte Observer that the wreck happened about 7 p.m. Sunday on Brown Mountain Beach Road about 12 miles northwest of Morganton.

Authorities say 23-year-old James Nutt of Morganton lost control of the Nissan Altima on the winding road. The vehicle went down an embankment, then went airborne for more than 40 feet before hitting the ground and striking the tree.

OBAMA IN CHARGE

Spill still BP’s Hoof steps in the night responsibility Anonymous earmarks boost Pentagon budget S

omebody had to start taking the fall for the runaway Gulf oil spill, and Thursday it came to Elizabeth Birnbaum, ousted as head of the U.S. Minerals Management Service. The agency’s chummy relations with the oil industry and lax approach to regulation perhaps did not actually cause the spill, but certainly played a role in allowing it to happen. The next step is to proceed with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar’s planned dismantling of the MMS. His proposal calls for separating its functions of setting standards, conducting inspections and enforcement, and collecting revenues into Obama pointed stand-alone units to end the inherent toward the conflict of interest solution when he in the old system. President said his mistake Barack Obama is was believing that taking pains with ‘the oil companies his press conference and trip to had their act the Gulf to show together when it that he is not, as been charged, came to worst-case has disengaged from the crisis, officialscenarios.’ ly now the U.S.’s worst oil spill ever. He wants it understood that he is in charge: “Make no mistake, BP is operating at our direction.” Obama has been under pressure for the government to “take over” the process of capping the well, whatever that means. He could call in the military, but cleaning up after the oil companies is not in the military’s job description; besides, it has its hands full elsewhere. A standby federal reaction force of experts, ships, submersibles and heavy equipment would be nice in a perfect world, but it would be expensive and underused because, mercifully, deepsea spills of this magnitude are rare. Obama himself pointed toward the solution when he said his mistake was believing that “the oil companies had their act together when it came to worst-case scenarios.” From now on, the government must insist that the companies adhere to the best standards and practices for building and operating the wells, something that was not always followed in BP’s case. And when the administration’s six-month moratorium on offshore leases expires, the government must demand as a condition of granting the leases that the oil companies have workable plans for an effective response to a catastrophe and the expertise and equipment for carrying them out. The role of the government is not to plug oil wells, but to ensure that the industry has the capacity to do so.

itizens Against Government Waste recently issued its FY10 summary of earmark abuses, called the Pig Book. Remarkably, $6 billion of the $6.5 billion in anonymous earmarks were made within the defense appropriation. And with the war supplemental pending, more surely is on the way. Congressional rules require members to disclose all earmarks online. Rules, though, were made to be broken. Garden-variety violators — those that remain anonymous because of the weirdness or embarrassment of their spending — are less remarkable because they have no greater meaning. The member requesting $1.8M for food allergy research in the defense bill provides a great example. Yet two other types connect far more significantly to planning and strategy.

Wilbur goes to the ball

House Republicans profiled their fiscal responsibility by pledging to offer no earmarks for the entire FY2011 budget cycle. Far less PR was done for the caveat memo circulated by the House Armed Services Committee Minority staff. In it, HASC Republicans determined that “committee level national security policy decisions” did not constitute earmarks and, as a consequence, can continue. Two particular committee level national security policy decisions were cited as examples: procurement of additional C-17 cargo jets and development of an alternative second engine for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. The Pentagon has very prominently rejected these purchases, and excluded them from its strategy and recent budgets — hence the

‘need’ for earmarks. Taken together, earmarks for just these two purchases ($2.97 billion) totaled 49% of the anonymous requests in the defense appropriation, and 29% of all defense requests. This lays to rest any ambiguity about the meaning of House Republican’s earmark ban as it pertains to defense. “Committee level national security decisions” may accessorize that pig for a masquerade ball, but behind that mask is still an undisciplined mass of pork. When pigs drive (and sail) House Republicans certainly aren’t the only ones leaving unclaimed BBQ stains on the defense bill, though. Indeed, the Pentagon’s clumsy fingerprints are strikingly visible. Foremost among them is an $825 million plus-up for the coveted Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle (MRAP). Replacing DOD’s jury-rigged ‘up-armored’ Humvees, the MRAP is seeing extensive service in Iraq and Afghanistan and, consequently, is being wedged anywhere in the budget it will fit. MRAP purchases belong in the overseas contingency operations title but have featured significantly in emergency supplemental spending, and apparently now in earmarks as well. Earmarked spending for the DDG-51 program of Arleigh Burke class destroyers also reflects needs that DOD should have foreseen but didn’t. Last December the Navy decided to cancel the CG(X) Next Generation Cruiser and instead procure more advanced DDG-51s. Until then, the defense appropriators hewed to the administration request of $329 million for advance procurement funding for two DDG-51s. Yet a $579 million figure, $250 million over the request, emerged

from the appropriation conference following the Navy’s decision. Thus, while House Republicans are compromising strategy simply to bring the pork home, the Pentagon finds itself stuck with budgeting through earmarks having failed to plan ahead. FY10 War supplemental is serving up seconds CAGW’s Pig Book covers the already-enacted FY10 budget, but undisciplined earmark spending certainly is not about to end. In fact, the next round is coming right up as defense appropriators expect to pass the war supplemental bill within the month. Anonymity is less likely to be a problem this time around, though. Last year, for instance, over 99% of the $493 million in earmarks weighing the bill down was proudly claimed by Senate appropriator Thad Cochrane (R-MS). Supplemental spending carries a strong risk of fiscal indiscipline, often representing — like the MRAPs and DDG51s — issues that could and should have been foreseen. Earmarking is even simpler — it is the pinnacle of indiscipline, as the shame implied by common preferences for anonymity indicate. By earmarking the war supplemental, that indiscipline just is compounded. Regrettably, as the bill moves forward this month, hardly anything else can be expected. • • • Matt Leatherman of Arlington, Va., formerly of Salisbury, and Mariah Quinn are contributors to Budget Insight, where this piece first appeared.

Haitian orphans tangled in red tape BY LISA HOFFMAN

Scripps Howard News Service

W

ASHINGTON — About 1,000 Haitian orphans now living with U.S. families are so tangled in red tape that it could take years before they get legal immigration status here. That is no small matter as the U.S. and many states are restricting the protections and benefits available to those who are not legally entitled to be here. It makes it difficult, if not impossible, for their adoptive American parents to cover them with health insurance or enroll them in school, and, if something happens to their parents, it means they could be sent back to Haiti. The legal limbo is a result of the way the children were whisked out of Haiti after the Jan. 12 earthquake. They left before they had all the paperwork needed to be legally adopted, and were allowed to enter the U.S. on a temporary humanitarian basis. Since then, the notoriously labyrinthian path to formal adoption has become virtually blocked. So three senators — Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; Jim Inhofe, R-Okla.; and Mary Landrieu, D-La. — this past week intro-

loyd Landis, the disqualified winner of the 2006 Tour de France bicycle race, has admitted that he was taking performance-enhancing drugs. The three-week Tour de France has cyclists biking more than 100 miles a day, many of those stages taking place in the mountains. It makes the Ironman competitions seem like a lazy afternoon of lawn darts and croquet. Floyd Landis won the Tour de France with, for all practical purposes, a broken hip. I watched it the day he JIM pulled away from the lead MULLEN group and rode straight up a mountain. It was one of the most astounding feats of endurance ever seen. Now that he’s admitted taking drugs, I just have two questions. Where can I get some of that stuff Floyd was taking, and why aren’t they giving it to everyone? What are we, stupid? They keep saying it’s bad for you, that it will stunt your growth, make you impotent. Yet every night we can watch athletes who have admitted taking PEDs and Human Growth Hormones. They’re playing pro ball long after their peers have dropped out, they’re dating starlets, they’re making babies and tons of money. Gee, I hate to see them wreck their lives like that. What were they thinking? Whoever makes PEDs should be advertising them every night on the news. “Tired, sluggish, don’t have the energy to fill the dishwasher? Ask your doctor about Makesmefeelgood. Warning, may cause high energy levels, increased attention from the opposite sex, a longer life span and a raise in pay. Should you experience any of these symptoms, call your doctor immediately and ask for more.” Isn’t this the exact same thing the “legal” drugs claim to do? Calling something a performance-enhancing drug makes it sound unsportsmanlike. But isn’t food a performance enhancer? It would be hard to play football if you weren’t allowed to eat any protein for a few weeks before the game. Food obviously boosts an athlete’s performance, yet the International Olympic Committee refuses to ban it. Or should the athlete with the healthier diet be banned while the one who eats bacon-flavored ice cream gets to play? What about water? Doesn’t that up your game? At marathons, runners are encouraged to drink performance-enhancing water. Those cheats. Don’t all the years Floyd Landis trained and competed count for something? You could shoot me full of crack cocaine and amphetamines and zap me with a cattle prod and I still couldn’t have done what he did in the Tour de France. I couldn’t make it up that hill in a car. Maybe he wouldn’t have won the race without the drugs, but it’s not like he coasted to the win. While he was out there training day after day, riding thousands of miles a year, others sat around the house eating snack chips and calling sports radio talk shows to complain about athletes on dope. These are the same fans who go to baseball and football games and eat platefuls of nachos washed down with staggering amounts of beer while sitting around for four hours with no more exercise than going to the bathroom. Wow, what a bunch of health nuts they are. They would never use dope. Except that stuff they take for their cholesterol, the stuff they take for their diabetes, the stuff they take for their lower-back pain, the stuff they take for their gout and the stuff they take for their ED.

Bloody Israeli raid on Gaza-bound ships, killing 9, sparks harsh criticism, diplomatic crisis

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey withdrew its ambassador to Israel and called for an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council as condemnations erupted across Europe and the Arab world Monday over Israel’s deadly commando raid on ships taking humanitarian aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip. Government after government demanded an explanation from Israel, which said its soldiers were trying to defend themselves against armed activists. The White House said it was trying to learn more about “this tragedy.” Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said “it should be known that we are not going to remain silent in the face of this inhumane state terrorism.” Most of the nine dead were apparently from Turkey, once a close ally of Israel. Erdogan cut short a visit to Latin America on Monday to return home because of the clash. “This assault proved once again, clearly, that the current government of Israel does not want peace in the region,” he told reporters in Chile .

Gunmen attack hospital in Pakistan, kill 6 people LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — At least two gunmen disguised in police uniforms attacked a hospital in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore late Monday, killing six people in a failed attempt to free a captured militant being treated there, officials said. The gunmen managed to escape but left without securing the release of the militant, who was part of a group of gunmen who attacked a minority sect in Lahore on Friday and killed 93 people, said Rana Sanaullah, the law minister of Punjab province, where Lahore is the capital. The gunmen stormed Jinnah Hospital in a hail of gunfire shortly before midnight Monday and briefly took several patients hostage, Sanaullah said. One of the gunmen climbed on the roof to shoot at police who surrounded the building, he said. Four of the six people

Another seven people were wounded, he said. Lahore has experienced a string of deadly attacks in the past year by militants who have declared war on both the government and minority groups in the country.

Pakistan lifts Facebook ban LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistan lifted a ban on Facebook on Monday after officials from the social networking site apologized for a page deemed offensive to Muslims and removed its contents, a top information technology official said. The move came almost two weeks after Pakistan imposed the ban amid anger over a page that encouraged users to post images of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. Many Muslims regard depictions of the prophet, even favorable ones, as blasphe-

mous. “In response to our protest, Facebook has tendered their apology and informed us that all the sacrilegious material has been removed from the URL,” said Najibullah Malik, secretary of Pakistan’s information technology ministry, referring to the technical term for a Web page. Facebook assured the Pakistani government that “nothing of this sort will happen in the future,” Malik said. Officials from the website could not immediately be reached for comment. They said earlier the contents of the “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!” page did not violate Facebook’s terms.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea broadened efforts Monday to convince the world and its own public that North Korea sank one of its warships, sharing evidence with Russian torpedo experts and preparing a special briefing for influential bloggers and Twitter personalities. The persuasion campaign coincided with military exercises in which thousands of South Korean troops practiced fending off an attack from the North near the rivals’ tense border. The drill, which the army said was routine and unrelated to the ship attack, involved building and defending pontoon bridges that scores of tanks used to cross a river as helicopters buzzed overhead. The South is lobbying for support for U.N. action against the North, blamed for torpedoing the Cheonan warship and killing 46 sailors in March. Winning Moscow’s backing would be vital because Russia is a veto-holding permanent Security Council member and a traditional ally of North Korea, which denies attacking the ship. The Russian team — including torpedo and submarine experts — arrived Monday and received a briefing on the Cheonan probe, con-

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli commandos rappelled down to an aid flotilla sailing to thwart a Gaza blockade Monday, clashing with pro-Palestinian activists on the lead ship in a botched raid that left at least nine passengers dead. Bloodied passengers sprawled on the deck and troops dived into the sea to save themselves during several hours of hand-to-hand fighting that injured dozens of activists and six soldiers. Hundreds of activists were towed from the international waters to Israeli detention centers and hospitals. International condemnation was swift and harsh as Israel scrambled to explain how what was meant to be a simple takeover of a civilian vessel went so badly awry. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu abruptly canceled a planned meeting with President Barack Obama in Washington to rush home. The global reaction appeared likely to increase pressure to end the embargo that has plunged Gaza’s 1.5 million residents deeper into poverty. Most of the information about what happened on the single ship where violence broke out came from Israel, which cut off all communication to and from the activists and provided testimony and video evidence that its soldiers came under attack by activists armed with metal rods, knives, slingshots and two pistols snatched from the troops.

PLAIN CITY, Ohio (AP) — About 150 law enforcement officers are guarding highways around an Ohio dairy farm where animal welfare activists want to stage a protest after a video showed cows being kicked and poked with pitchforks. A Chicago-based group called Mercy For Animals released the undercover video last week. Conklin Dairy Farms Inc. fired a worker who’s charged with 12 counts of animal cruelty. The Union County sheriff’s office says Internet chatter indicated a protest

was scheduled Sunday. But authorities say the Plain City farm is private property and is surrounded by highways, leaving no place for people to legally park or protest. Sgt. Chris Skinner says a few people in cars approached officers about staging a rally. He says they must find public property. Conklin Dairy Farms says it won’t condone animal abuse and is cooperating with authorities.

Judge: Conn. town can’t hold graduations in church BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A federal judge has ruled two Connecticut public high schools can’t hold their graduations inside a church because that would be an unconstitutional endorsement of religion. U.S. District Court Judge

The Enfield school board says it voted to hold services June 23 and 24 at The First Cathedral in Bloomfield because it had enough space at the right price. But two students and three of their parents sued. The judge says Enfield had unconstitutionally entangled itself with religion by agreeing to cover much of the church’s religious imagery. She also says the town coerced the plaintiffs to support religion by forcing them to enter the church for graduation.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Folks in Asheville watch and take pictures as a young black bear runs loose downtown last week. Police said the bear, which did not appear aggressive, wandered several city blocks before disappearing behind a park.

Bear takes 45-minute stroll in Asheville ASHEVILLE (AP) — A black bear took a 45-minute stroll through a western North Carolina city during a busy lunch hour. The Asheville Citizen-Times reported that a young bear sauntered through downtown Asheville on Wednesday. Po-

lice say the bear did not appear aggressive. Dozens of gawkers watched and took pictures as it wandered several city blocks before disappearing behind a park. Wildlife biologist Mike Carraway from N.C. Wildlife Resources Commis-

sion says the relatively small animal likely was a yearling recently banished from its home territory by its mother, which is normal this time of year. He says the bear should have plenty to eat in the wild now so it probably wasn’t forced to look for food elsewhere.

Fly tying’s easy with patience, following directions BY KEVIN WHEATLEY The Frankfort, Ky., State Journal

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Todd Weeks, a 50-year-old fly fisherman, sits at small mobile worktable, clamps a fishing hook into a vice and winds its shank with dark-green thread. For the tail, he ties black marabou — the soft, fluffy part of feathers found on turkeys — to the shank. He then adds olive-colored yarn for the body and a rooster feather for hackle. Weeks finishes the fly and briefly inspects it. “Simple,” he says, holding the fly in his palm. It’s a woolly bugger, sort of a utility fly, which he says will “fish all day” at the Salato Wildlife Education Center’s two lakes. Tying flies may prove daunting for newcomers to fly fishing. But Weeks says anyone can do it. All it takes is a little patience and the ability to follow directions. “You have to be able to read a book, and that’s it,” Weeks said. “I mean, I can give you this vice and some basic tools and hand you this book, and within a half hour’s time, you can tie a fly in no time.” The book is “The Benchside Introduction to Fly Tying” by Leeson Schollmeyer. Weeks recommends it for novices and veterans alike.

Todd Weeks ties a fly at Salato Wildlife Education Center. ‘When you start catching fish on flys that you’ve made, it’s just a lot of fun,’ he said. After more than 40 years of tying, Weeks still keeps a copy nearby. He’s a journeyman tool and dye maker of 20 years and began tying flies when he was 8 growing up in Buffalo, N.Y. “At the time, they came with this kit, and you could order them through a actually, we had an order shop in the town I grew up in, so I walked up to the order shop and got this kit,” Weeks recalled recently in an interview at the Salato Center. “I think at the time it was $10 or $12, and it gave you enough to do one of each of the flies that it had in that kit. “It came with an inexpensive vice and the basic tools

you need to do your fly-tying. So I started doing it that way.” His first fly was a woolly bugger — which resembles a leech or worm in water. The marabou tail provides fluttering action fish find irresistible. A small creek ran behind Todd’s home in Buffalo where he caught his first fish — a bass — using one of his handmade flies. “Back in the ’60s you could just walk out your back door and spend all day down there,” Weeks says. “No one worried about you unless you didn’t come to eat.” Over the years and through travels, Weeks has

accumulated a small stockpile of fly tying materials. He has a tackle box full of various styles and sizes of hooks, spools of colored thread and a blue plastic bin filled with bags of animal fur and feathers from deer, turkey, peacocks and roosters. “There are a hundred different types.” He has more exotic tying material at home, including porcupine fur. There are even a few synthetic materials — which some fly tiers shun. “Some people are traditionalists and purists, and they’re only going to tie with fur, feather, that kind of thing. I don’t really follow that route. I kind of enjoy doing different things, like if I’m going up to Erie Pennsylvania, let’s say, and I’m going after the steelhead trout. I’ve got yarn that’s just bright orange, or chartreuse even, in color that I don’t mind using. “You’re not going to find anything chartreuse in the wild that’s going to help you tie that fly and catch that fish.” Weeks teaches kids to tie flies in his spare time. He can keep their attention and says they’re some of his best students. His 16-year-old son, Wyatt, is starting to fish more now. “I enjoy seeing him enjoy it as I used to enjoy it, and knowing he’s going to follow the same road eventually.”

The blue heron rookery on Lake Norman is a beehive of activity since chicks have hatched and are maturing. The active parents take turns hunting for baby-food 24 hours a day. When they aren’t foraging, they gather nesting materials (mostly sticks and branches) used to enlarge or repair their gigantic nests. At times, there are so many blue heron circling the island, the air space resembles a busy airport. Blue Heron Island is the smaller of two islands between Markers D4 and D6 in Reed Creek. While the island is off limits during nesting season (do not beach your boat or walk on the island), the birds can easily be viewed from a boat with binoculars. The nesting season begins in the spring and continues until summer when the chicks are old enough to fend for themselves. What makes Blue Heron Island so interesting is that the birds colonize in the tall pines, each with multiple nests. A closer look finds each nest with several chicks, all hungry and chirping loudly between feedings. The more you watch, the more you will be fascinated at how the young recognize the parents as they glide back to the nest with a mouthful of food. It is quite a sight to watch birds that weigh up to seven pounds make three-point landings between the branches of a lofty pine trees.

Blue heron are experts at fishing, but they also eat snakes and small ground animals. They wade patiently and then stand in place until their quarry is close enough to snare with a quick thrust of their blade-like beak. While an adult stands upwards of 41⁄2 feet, its neck is very skinny — so thin in fact, that if a fish gets sideways it can choke to death. The neck of a juvenile bird is smaller yet, which makes choking a major reason for the species’ high mortality rate. The shallows surrounding Blue Heron Island are covered with rocks and stumps. Do not venture too close. Binoculars are recommended. Everyone in the party should bring a pair. Listen for the chirping chicks that sounds the return of a parent with food.

Hot spots

Fishing has been good for bass, perch and cats. Stripers are suspended in water to 50 feet on river and creek points. Live baits are best, but schools of fish can be coaxed into biting vertically fished jigging spoons. Bream and small channel cats are in shallow coves and can be caught on red wigglers. The lake level is about 1.5 feet below full pond and the water surface temperature is in the 70s and 80s. 

Recreational license opens Camp Lake James access NEBO — Camp Lake James, an outdoor adventure center in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, has released a new, annual recreational license. Until now, the camp’s facilities have been available only to Crescent Communities property owners. The camp facilities include a social hall, fitness center, canteen serving light refreshments, two swimming pools, tennis courts, expedition center with kayaks and hiking kits, activity fields and a trail system that connects to the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail in the Pisgah National Forest. The new annual recreational license allows licensees to enjoy all that Camp Lake James has to offer without owning a prop-

erty in 1780 or Old Wildlife Club, the Crescent communities at Lake James. Full-time staff at the expedition center can schedule a day of rock climbing, learning about creating certified backyard habitats or enjoying an evening under the stars at the outdoor amphitheater. “Camp Lake James is the place to begin and end daily excursions on Lake James,” said Leslie Young, manager of Camp Lake James. “We are excited to open the door for more people in the area to utilize the amenities of the camp, connect with nature and create memories with new and old friends.” The license is $2,000 annually. Visitors interested in experiencing the camp before purchasing may call 866-3750065 for a complimentary one-time day pass.

Temptations singer Ali-Ollie Woodson dies at 58 Woodson’s voice, though similar to Edwards’ with its fiery tone, was distinct in itself, and helped the group notch the R&B hits “Treat Her Like A Lady,” “Sail Away,” and “Lady Soul,” from 1984 to 1986. “He had this swagger about himself. He was cool. He had a coolness about himself that was really very inviting,” said Wilson. He said he first met Woodson in 1980 before Woodson joined the group and that he last spoke with his friend about two weeks ago. Despite his fame, Woodson was “always a gentleman and always polite and kind to everybody. If we ever asked him to do anything, he never said, ‘well, it’s going to cost you.’ He’d always say, ‘yeah, let’s go,”’ said Wilson, who founded the Detroit-based Motown association in the mid1990s. “He was just a star performer. Wonderful person. Wonderful, wonderful person. He was very kind.” Messages were left Monday for a producer and a manager who worked with Woodson. A recorded message at a phone number for his wife said the voice mailbox was full.

DETROIT (AP) — Ali-Ollie Woodson, who led the legendary Motown quintet The Temptations in the 1980s and ’90s and helped restore them to their hit-making glory with songs including “Treat Her Like A Lady,” has died, a friend said. He was 58. Woodson died Sunday in southern California after battling cancer, Motown Alumni Association President Billy Wilson said. Wilson said Woodson’s wife, Juanita, told him about the death Sunday. Woodson was not an original member of the group, which had several lineup changes since it started in the 1960s. But he played an integral part in keeping the Temptations from becoming just nostalgia act. By the early 1980s, the Temptations were no longer posting hit after hit like they did in the 1960s and ’70s with classics such as “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” “My Girl,” and “I Wish It Would Rain.” The group had lost original members, and Woodson was charged with replacing Dennis Edwards, whose passionate voice defined the group during the 1970s.

and advance preparations. I want to send her a thankyou note to acknowledge her amazing help. Here’s the problem: At the party, after a few drinks, she had an emotional episode and yelled offensive things in a loud voice before stomping out of the party, hopping mad. It was an ugly scene that left the other guests upset. I am angry about this, but will accept her apology if she offers one. In the meantime, I do not feel sincere sending her a thank-you note for her help because she also had such a negative impact on the party. — Richard

If we don’t face real consequences, our choices don’t matter all that much. All the same, as you note, I am a great believer in second chances and have learned from readers’ submissions (here and at my website, mysecondchancestories.com) that the crooked path — through challenges — is the one offering the most interesting rewards. That has certainly been the case in my own life. My favorite inspirational book for this graduation season is “Heroes for My Son,” by Brad Meltzer (2010, HarperStudio). Meltzer was inspired to put together a list of heroes when his son was born, and it includes many people your great-nephew would have learned about in school, such as Gandhi, Albert Einstein and Neil Armstrong, but also John Lennon and Eleanor Roosevelt — and Meltzer’s mother. It’s important that your great-nephew learn that each of us has the stuff of heroes within us — but sometimes we need a little inspiration to see it. Meltzer’s comment, “History doesn’t just pick (specific) people, history picks everyone,” is an invitation to find the hero within. I love the fact that you recognize this need and see the promise in this young man. I see it in every young person crossing a stage in cap and gown.

R118763

Dear Amy: My greatnephew is almost graduating from high school this month. Apparently, he has not been doing well academically. The school will allow him to walk across the stage if he agrees to finish his work during the summer. This young man needs to be inspired to ASK realize that he AMY could make choices that benefit him. He has not always had the strongest or most consistent parenting, and he seems to lack self-confidence, motivation and self-discipline. In many ways, he is in the “normal” hormonal and maturation stages of many 18year-old young men. In other ways, I believe he needs to be held accountable to build maturity, self-esteem and discover the interests he is willing to work toward. Do you have any recommendations of inspiring stories or books for this age group? I love your collection of second-chance stories, but I need something I can wrap and send to him that caters to his level. — Caring Great Aunt Dear Great Aunt: I’m not quite sure how someone can cross the stage and “almost graduate,” predicated on conditions that haven’t yet been met. This is an example of a deeper problem — not just concerning young people, but having to do with all of us.

Perimenopause precedes menopause Dear Dr. Gott: I am a 43year-old female with irregular periods. When I finally went to my doctor, he told me that I have perimenopause. Can you tell me what this is? Dear Reader: Simply put, perimenopause is an introduction to menopause. It commonly occurs when a female is in her 40s, but can happen to some women in their mid30s. It generally lasts between two to eight years and is a natuDR. PETER ral part of the a g i n g GOTT process. Estrogen levels rise and fall in an erratic pattern, and women may experience problems sleeping, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood changes and more. Repeated menstrual irregularity, however, is one of the most widely recognized initial phases of the condition. As long as the irregularity isn’t accompanied by extremely heavy bleeding, breakthrough bleeding between cycles, bleeding that lasts longer than eight days and cycles that occur fewer than 21 days apart, you can usually consider things as progressing normally. However, complications outside these guidelines should be brought to your primarycare physician’s or gynecologist’s attention. There are several circumstances that have a bearing on when perimenopause or

menopause might begin. Smoking, for example, is known to trigger menopause up to two years earlier than in those without a history. Other signs of an earlierthan-normal occurrence are chemotherapy for childhood cancer, never having delivered a baby, hysterectomy and pelvic radiation therapy. Therapy might include the use of oral contraceptives for the purpose of regulating cycles, and reducing vaginal dryness and hot flashes. A progestin-containing IUD (intrauterine device) might control heavy bleeding, while progestin therapy might regulate cycles. If you are satisfied with the information you already received, I recommend you continue as you are, eat well, exercise, avoid alcohol and caffeine, which can trigger hot flashes, and enjoy each day to the fullest. If you are dissatisfied, either jot down a list of questions and return to your physician for an explanation, or request a second opinion. In the interim, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “Menopause.” Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order to Newsletter, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092-0167. Be sure to mention the title or print an order form off my website at www.AskDrGottMD.com. Dear Dr. Gott: I am considering taking colloidal silver and want your opinion. Is it safe, or is it toxic?

Dear Reader: Colloidal silver is touted as a cure-all that boosts the immune system and treats a plethora of issues from viruses, cancer, HIV/AIDS, shingles and even prostatitis. There is no scientific evidence to substantiate such claims. It is not an essential mineral. Colloidal silver is made up of tiny silver particles suspended in a liquid. It is available in oral, spray and topical forms. It is known to build up in the tissues of the body over time and most commonly results in a bluegray discoloration of the skin, nails, gums, eyes and internal organs. While this isn’t a serious health problem, it is a serious cosmetic problem because the discoloration doesn’t go away even if the supplement is discontinued. My opinion is probably not one you want to hear, but I can’t recommend this product. If you eat a nutritious diet, exercise and get adequate sleep, forgo something so questionable until firm scientific studies prove it is beneficial. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including “Live Longer, Live Better,” “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Diet” and “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook,” which are available at most bookstores or online.

Don’t be fooled by the given layout BY PHILLIP ALDER

United Feature Syndicate

Laurence J. Peter, an educator and “hierarchiologist” best known for the formulation of the Peter Principle (which is too long for inclusion here), said, “It is wise to remember that you are one of those who can be fooled some of the time.” Defending against four spades, you, West, lead the heart ace: five, two, three. What would you do next? North, with six-card support, was right to shut his eyes and bid four spades. Who knows who can make what? And this way he was chasing a game bonus. You were probably tempted to compete further, but the unfavorable

vulnerability dissuaded you. (Note that five clubs goes down one, which is a cheap sacrifice if four spades makes, but is expensive if you defeat four spades.) You know partner’s heart two is a singleton. (With the doubleton eight-two, he would have played the eight, starting an echo.) So it is tempting to cash the heart king. With this layout, that works fine because East should discard the club king, the top of

his sequence. Then you would cash the club ace and play another club for down one. However, that is not the right defense! Suppose partner has Q-J-x-x-x of clubs (and no diamond ace). The winning defense would be to lead a low heart at trick two. Make your partner ruff the trick. He would then shift to the club queen. This way your side would take one heart, a heart ruff and two clubs. Since this cannot cost, it is the correct play. Yes, in this position, partner could ruff your heart king and lead the club queen, but he might not.

When you team up with competent allies, your ability to achieve on a large scale will be greatly enhanced in the year ahead. Develop relationships with those who are going places so that you can collectively better your opportunities. Gemini (May 21-June 20) - Certain interests of yours that are large in scope could be of equal importance to your peers or companions. Collectively you'll succeed if you are the one who supplies the leadership. Cancer (June 21-July 22) - Although you're someone who likes to go it alone at times, today it'll be joint endeavors that will occupy your thoughts. You might be that person who has strengths upon which all can draw. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - A number of special attributes you have to offer will be recognized by others and serve to draw out the best that's in them. It won't take long for any one person to pick up on what it is that s/he can copy. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Anything that could be meaningful to you financially should not be put off until another day. Do all that you can to take care of important material affairs while luck is in your corner. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Your attitude will determine what degree of success you encounter. Regardless of whatever it is that you get involved in, if you think in positive terms, the results will reward you with what you envision. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - A situation that may have been giving you fits will shift in a more favorable direction. Now is the time to capitalize on whatever needs fixing or bracing up. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Your optimistic thinking will not only give you a more positive outlook on your affairs but will also be extremely helpful in directing whatever it is you're trying to accomplish. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - There is a possibility that some unexpected but good developments could take place that will enable you to direct your financial affairs more beneficially than you had ever thought possible. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Those more attractive attributes of your personality will be extremely pronounced and will draw others to you like a magnet. You'll be well received wherever you go. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) - Because you will be particularly good at harmonizing and blending your inner drive with your physical assertiveness, this could be an especially rewarding day for you. Make the most of it. Aries (March 21-April 19) - Something very nice could happen for you that will put you in a good mood all day long. In fact, it might be so wonderful that you may even have justification for celebrating. Taurus (April 20-May 20) - It's not out of the question that more than one of your successes today will come from financial or career involvements. Apply yourself effectively and watch what happens.

SALISBURY POST

Ronnie Gallagher, Sports Editor, 704-797-4287 rgallagher@salisburypost.com

East Rowan’s softball team is making its first Final Four appearance since 1996, when head coach Mike Waddell was an assistant with the program. Crest, East’s opponent in the 3A Western final on Friday, is currently making the deepest postseason run in school history. The Mustangs (24-1) are led by juniors Chelsea White, a pitcher who has committed to Elon, and Ericka Nesbitt, a shortstop who has committed to Campbell. Bailey Smith is a standout pitcher and slugger for Crest (23-1). Smith, who went deep twice in back-to-back games earlier this year, has eight homers. She’s a key reason WHITE why the Chargers have outscored their opponents 22-0 in four playoff games. Crest pulled out a 1-0 victory in 13 innings against Fred T. Foard in the second round and won 10-0 in six innings against Enka to qualify for the Final Four.

Chance excites Tedder

Wilson Hunt is located only 19 miles from Five County Stadium in Zebulon, but the Warriors’ opponent in the 3A baseball finals is familiar with the ballpark. East Rowan (29-2) and Hunt (26-5) will begin play in the best-of-three state championship series Friday at the home of the Double-A Carolina Mudcats. The Mustangs visited Five County two years ago and fell to Rocky Mount in a championship series that went the distance. Senior third baseman Noah Holmes is the only returning starter from that 29-win team. Holmes and shortstop Preston Troutman have both signed with Appalachian State.

Chad Tedder was offered the East Rowan football head coaching job Friday. He accepted the challenge Saturday after a short prayer, a long talk with his family and a good night’s sleep. “I feel good, I feel ready and I TEDDER feel excited that this o p portunity kind of fell into my lap,” Tedder said. Tedder, 39, has been West Davidson’s defensive coordinator since 2006. He applied unsuccessfully for the head coaching job at his alma mater, West Montgomery, a year ago but went into that interview process with mixed emotions. “If I’d gotten the job at West Montgomery, we would’ve had to move, I would’ve had to uproot my family, and that was a big concern,” Tedder said. “But I live just 20 minutes from East.” The Tedder family resides in the Churchland community, southwest of Lexington on N.C. 150. “We usually eat in Salisbury and go to the movies in Salisbury because no one recognizes us,” Tedder said with a chuckle. “When we go to the Wal-Mart in Lexington, half the people know me.” Tedders’ wife, Susan, is a guidance counselor at West Davidson who once worked at East Rowan. The children are Andrew, 8, and Anastasia, 6. They answer to Drew and Ana. Other than the addition of East Rowan T-shirts to their wardrobes, that trio of Tedders won’t have to make major lifestyle changes to accommodate Chad’s new job. If Tedder had to describe himself in three words, he’d go with “easy-going, peoplepleaser and patient.” Patience can be a necessary virtue at East. Tedder will be the 16th head coach in the history of the program, which has compiled a 228-3108 record, and the seventh coach since 1999. East is 33-80 since 2000 even after two winning campaigns during recently departed coach Brian Hinson’s 17-19 tenure that covered three seasons. Hinson raised the level of expectations and instilled a winning attitude. Fan support is solid. Tedder has his work cut out, but he won’t have to start from scratch.

Salisbury’s Nick Summers leads the pack down the frontstretch during the 1,600 meters at the county meet. Summers has signed with UNC Asheville.

Love at first sight for Summers BY BRET STRELOW

bstrelow@salisburypost.com

A parental tip played a role in the recruitment of Salisbury runner Nick Summers, who stepped away from an intense pick-up basketball game to take the call that determined his college destination.

Summers has signed with UNC Asheville, where he will participate in track and cross country. The Bulldogs were the first program to express interest in the senior who recently helped Salisbury win a second straight 2A track title. “It’s kind of like first falling in love,” Summers said. “They were the

first school to contact me. I carried that all throughout my senior year.” Salisbury alum Adam Vick is an assistant on coach Jesse Norman’s staff at Asheville, and that connection helped create exposure for Summers. Vick’s parents saw some of the times Summers was posting at Salisbury during the fall and informed

their son. “I have my idea of what fast times are. What do my parents think fast times are?” Vick said with a laugh. “I looked, saw what Nick was running and was like, ‘Those are some pretty good times.’ ”

Braves take over first in NL East BY GEORGE HENRY Associated Press

Phillies starter Joe Blanton gets cooled down Monday.

ATLANTA — Chipper Jones knows the Braves 9 Philadelphia Phillies 3 Phillies’ lineup is too potent to stay quiet for long. “At some point they’re going to break out of it,” he said. “You just hope it’s not against you. We’ve been fortunate.” The Braves capitalized on another punchless Phillies’ effort to move into first place in the NL East with a 9-3 victory Monday. Jones and Troy Glaus homered to back a strong start by Tommy Hanson. The Braves,

winners of six straight, are onehalf game ahead of Philadelphia, which has dropped nine of 13. “Frustrated? Yes, we’re frustrated,” said Phillies left fielder Raul Ibanez, who had one of three RBI doubles in the seventh. “But we’re not down. This is a team of guys that are going to fight and scratch and claw.” Improving to 16-4 since May 10, the Braves have made up 71⁄2 games in the NL East since May 17, when they were in last place. Atlanta hasn’t held first place in the NL East this late in a season since they won the last of 14 straight division titles in 2005.

Rowan County, South washed out From staff reports

Lots of rain on Memorial Day. The Rowan County American Legion team’s home game with Surry County was washed out. The teams hope to play near the end of the regular season on June 28. Rowan has rescheduled several other rainouts — Stanly (June 6), Wilkes (June 16) and Concord (at Central Cabarrus High, June 21). Even without the East Rowan players, Rowan has managed to get off to a 2-0 start in the league.  South Rowan’s game with Mooresville was postponed from Monday to this Thursday. It’s a key one. South is off to a strong 5-1 start, while Mooresville holds first place in the Southern Division of Area III. South’s only loss came in a non-league game against the Moors by a 6-4 margin.  The Concord-Stanly also was rained out on Monday.  Mocksville beat Randolph County 13-2 on Monday. After a very slow start, Mocksville has heated up offensively. It scored six runs in the first inning and was well on its way to a 10-run rule win. Tyler Jordan, Nick Burwell and red-hot Joe Watson contributed two hits each to lead a 10-hit attack. Bret Peterson smacked his first homer and the team’s fourth. Mocksville went without a homer in its first 180 atbats this season. Tyler Howard pitched six solid innings and struck out

nine for the win.

Blackhawks ahead 2-0 on Philadelphia BY RICK GANO Associated Press

CHICAGO — Antti Niemi was unflapBlackhawks 2 pable as the Flyers 1 Stanley Cup finals turned defensive in Game 2. Different style of game from the opener, yet another victory for the Chicago Blackhawks. Niemi made 14 of his 32 saves in the final period and Chicago beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 to take a 2-0 series lead on Monday night. “It’s unbelievable feeling how the people react,” Niemi said as the crowd cheered him and chanted his name after the game. “Defense was the key.” After a 6-5 Chicago victory in the opener when the teams traded goals, both clubs tightened up their defense. The tone was more physical and chippy from the outset. The Blackhawks, who for the second straight game got no points from their two young

stars Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, broke through against Michael Leighton when Marian Hossa and Ben Eager scored 28 seconds apart late in the second period. And after the Flyers got a power-play goal from Simon Gagne early in the third, Niemi withstood a late flurry from the Flyers to preserve Chicago’s seventh straight win. “I thought their goaltender played extremely well in the third period. We had more than enough looks to tie up that game,” Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette said. Games 3 and 4 will be played in Philadelphia. Patrick Sharp fired a shot from the left circle, and after Leighton stopped it and with Chicago’s Troy Brouwer battling for the puck, Hossa poked it in from the left side with 2:51 left in the second. Hossa, in his third straight Stanley Cup finals with a different team, got his third goal of the playoffs and first since May 5 against Van-

couver in the conference semifinals. Just 28 seconds later with the crowd still abuzz, Dustin Byfuglien made a steal and passed the puck to fourth-line forward Eager. Eager skated to the right circle and unleashed a shot that beat Leighton high on the glove side to make it 2-0. It was the first goal of the playoffs for the former Flyers forward. Philadelphia broke through with 1 second left on a power play when Gagne scored from the left circle. Gagne nearly chipped in a tying rebound about 7 minutes later, but was denied by Niemi’s pad in close. Leighton, who was drafted by the Blackhawks and played parts of two seasons for them, got the nod despite being pulled in Game 1 after yielding five goals on 20 shots. He made 24 saves Monday night. Trying to get more punch, the Flyers inserted forward Daniel Carcillo into the lineup. A scratch the last three games

and known for his agitating style, Carcillo was the team leader in playoff penalty minutes (30) entering the game and joined Philadelphia captain Mike Richards and Jeff Carter on a first line that had been pointless in the opener. Carcillo replaced Gagne to start the game — Gagne later returned to the top line — and immediately began to mix things up. He took a run at Chicago’s Tomas Kopecky and inadvertently flattened teammate Carter. The Flyers were called for their first penalty of the series with 5:12 left in the opening period, bringing out a loud roar from the crowd as the Blackhawks went on a power play for the first time in nearly 75 minutes. They couldn’t score. About three minutes later, Chicago went on another power play when there were three penalties called simultaneously — two on the Flyers with Carcillo being sent to the box for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Busch brothers taking charge of NASCAR BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press

CONCORD — It’s not that common for siblings to reach the highest level of a professional sport, and when it happens, one of them typically toils in the shadow of the superstar. That’s been the case the past five years in NASCAR, where the Busch Brothers were never in the same league. Big brother Kurt hit his peak in 2004, when he won his only NASCAR championship, but his results were up-and-down after that banner season. Then along came Kyle, seven years his junior and a headline maker from the very beginning. When Kyle raised his game in 2008 to become a title contender, Kurt was off the pace and searching for solutions. When Kurt turned it around and climbed back into the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship last year, Kyle was in a slump that led to the late-season firing of his crew chief. After five years competing against each other in NASCAR’s elite division, the early hopes of a bitter championship battle between brothers had faded. My, how things have changed. The Busch Brothers are finally running at the same level, setting up a potential sizzling showdown over the upcoming long summer stretch of racing. Kurt Busch completed a twoweek sweep of Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday night,

closing out the first win for team owner Roger Penske in the prestigious Coca-Cola 600 eight days after claiming the $1 million prize in the annual AllStar race. Kyle Busch, meanwhile, won the Nationwide and Trucks Series races at CMS over the last two weeks, plus the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series races at Dover earlier in May. All told, the Busch Brothers have won the last six races spanning NASCAR’s top three series. The lone NASCAR celebration not by a Busch was Martin Truex Jr.’s victory in the Sprint Showdown, an All-Star race qualifier without either brother. “That’s kind of cool,” Kyle Busch said of the family domination. Indeed it is, particularly considering how combustible these two drivers are — particularly when racing each other. Nobody has forgotten the 2007 All-Star race, when hard racing between the two led to an accident that knocked two of the strongest cars out of the event. They were furious with each other following that May accident, and it wasn’t until their grandmother insisted they make peace or risk ruining Thanksgiving dinner that the hardheaded racers resolved their dispute. That’s right, brothers who passed each other every week in the garage, the motorhome lot and on the track went six months

without speaking over an accident in a non-points event. That was three years ago, and while not much has changed with either Busch’s style — they are both still aggressive, highly focused and often hot-tempered in the race car — they have both gotten smarter. Kurt, now 31, is showing the wisdom that compliments his talent level. Although there were flashes of growth over the past few years, it was punctuated late last season when he hung strong in the Chase even after crew chief Pat Tryson announced he was leaving at the end of the season. He admitted after Sunday night’s win that his personal progress was made after realizing the mistakes of his youth. “I’m not one to go out there with a big flash and a big flare,” he said. “I used to early on. I’d run my head up against the wall. I’d run my race car up against the wall. Reviews came in negative. For me, that’s not how I wanted to be remembered.” And he didn’t hesitate in choosing Steve Addington, who was fired in October by Kyle Busch, as his new crew chief. Since taking over the No. 2 Dodge this season, Addington has guided Busch to two points wins, the All-Star race victory, and seven top-10s in 13 races. “What I really enjoy about Steve is the confidence he gives me in the car and the adjustments that he makes,” Kurt

Busch said. “I feel like he’s helped me pick up my game because I have to have a fresher outlook on different setups.” Kyle, who just turned 25, is still a work in progress. His raw talent has never been questioned, but his decision-making isn’t always the best, particularly when he can smell victory. He wrecked out of last week’s All-Star race when he and teammate Denny Hamlin raced each other hard in the closing laps, and a furious Jeff Burton confronted him following the 600 to discuss how aggressive Kyle Busch had been on the final restart. Hamlin chided his teammate last week as being too immature to win a Cup championship, and Kurt Busch seemed to agree when he wondered if his younger brother shouldn’t have backed down in the All-Star race. “He’s been running these AllStar races for a few years now, running at a 1,000 percent pace every year,” Kurt said. “It doesn’t take a 1,000 percent pace to win it.” Maybe Kyle Busch figured that out over the weekend, when he came from two laps down to win the Nationwide Series race and overcame a pit-road disaster while leading the 600 to rally for a third-place finish. “These are the kind of races that make a championship,” he said after the 600. If he’s right, and both Buschs are involved, it could be a very exciting time for NASCAR.

A-Rod slams Tribe Associated Press

NEW YORK — Alex R o driguez hit his second grand slam of the season and Andy Pettitte was nearly unhittable again in the daytime, helping the New York Yankees beat Cleveland 11-2. Pettitte pitched seven innings, allowing three singles and Jhonny Peralta’s 100th career homer, while striking out five without a walk. He retired his last 14 batters. Both of Rodriguez’s slams this season came after Mark Teixeira was intentionally walked ahead of him. A-Rod is 5-for-5 with 18 RBIs when teams intentionally pitch around Teixeira. “I felt it coming, for some reason,” Rodriguez said. “I would appreciate if we keep these numbers to ourselves, and not share them with any other managers.” Roriguez’s seventh homer leaves him 10 shy off 600. Angels 7, Royals 1 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Ervin Santana pitched seven strong innings and the Angels didn’t need any late-game heroics, roughing up Luke Hochevar early on the way to a win over the Royals. Athletics 4, Tigers 1 DETROIT — Rajai Davis scored twice and Trevor Cahill continued to pitch well as the Athletics beat the Tigers. Blue Jays 3, Rays 2 TORONTO — Evan Longoria tripled off Kevin Gregg with one out in the ninth, but he was thrown out trying to score on John Jaso’s grounder to shortstop for the second out. NATIONAL LEAGUE Rockies 4, Giants 0 SAN FRANCISCO — Ubaldo Jimenez pitched a four-hitter to become the majors’ first 10-game winner this year, outpitching Tim Lincecum to lead Colorado past the Giants. “My Adrenalin was really high,” Jimenez said. “Everyone was expecting that game — my parents, neighbors, everyone back in my country, and in Denver, too. ... Everyone was expecting that game and waiting to get in front of the TV.” Clint Barmes hit a two-run single in the second inning that held up for Jimenez (10-1). He struck out nine, lowered his big league-best ERA to 0.78 and extended his career-best scoreless innings streak to 26. Jimenez became the 15th pitcher since 1952 to win 10 or more games by June 1, with Brandon Webb the last to do it in 2008. Marlins 13, Brewers 5 MIAMI — Cody Ross hit a three-run homer to spark Florida’s biggest inning this year, Cameron Maybin hit an inside-the-park home run to help the Marlins erase an early four-run deficit. Pirates 2, Cubs 1 PITTSBURGH — Pinchhitter Bobby Crosby singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning, Garrett Jones homered and the Pirates ended a five-game losing streak. Nationals 14, Astros 4 HOUSTON — Carlos Maldonado and Ryan Zimmerman hit three-run homers off Chris Sampson, long after Roy Oswalt was ejected, and Washington put together the highest scoring inning in Nationals’ history. Zimmerman and Adam Dunn drove in four runs apiece and both chipped in during a nine-run seventh. The Nationals said Stephen Strasburg is scheduled to make his major league debut against Pittsburgh on June 8. Cardinals 12, Reds 4 ST. LOUIS — Albert Pujols continued his torrid hitting and rookie Jaime Garcia overcame a shaky start for St. Louis, which moved into a first-place tie in the NL Central with Cincinnati. Pujols extended his streak of reaching base to nine straight plate appearances with two intentional walks and a single his first three times up. He hit into a double play in the fifth inning. Dodgers 5, Diamondbacks 4 LOS ANGELES — A balk by Esmerling Vasquez allowed Casey Blake to score the winning run in the bottom of the ninth.

NCSU’s Hill turning pro Associated Press

RALEIGH — Reigning NCAA golf champion Matt Hill is turning pro, skipping his final year at N.C. State after missing a chance to defend his title. Hill announced Monday that he will make his pro debut this week at the PGA Tour’s Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village. The 21-year-old Hill was one of the top-ranked amateurs in the world last year. He won seven college tournaments besides the NCAA championship to earn the Haskins Award as outstanding college golfer. This year the junior failed to advance out of the East Regional. He competed in three PGA Tour events as an amateur last summer, making the cut at the AT&T Classic and tying for 70th. Hill, who signed with IMG, felt his game was ready last year, “but now I’m finally ready for that lifestyle.”

NBA

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Lakers center Andrew Bynum’s troublesome right knee was drained of excess fluid Monday. Bynum hopes the procedure will allow him to play closer to full strength in the NBA finals against the Boston Celtics. Los Angeles plays host to Game 1 on Thursday night. “It was getting worse,” Bynum said. “The swelling wasn’t leaving, so they had to do it. I was doing the treatment, but it wasn’t going anywhere.”  ORLANDO, Fla. — Forward Matt Barnes says he will opt out

of the final year of his contract with the Magic to become a free agent.

TENNIS

PARIS — Four-time French Open champion Justine Henin lost 2-6, 6-1, 6-4 to No. 7-seeded Sam Stosur in the fourth round, ending Henin’s 24-match winning streak at her favorite event. “Everyone wants to see me (at) the level that I was,” said Henin, who abruptly retired in May 2008 while ranked No. 1, then returned to the tour this season and reached the Australian Open final in January. “I still have to work a lot, quite simply.” Serena Williams stumbled at the start before cruising to a 6-2, 6-2 victory over No. 18 Shahar Peer. Williams dropped the first seven points of the match. The other quarterfinal in that half of the draw will pit No. 4 Jelena Jankovic against 36thranked Yaroslava Shvedova. Jankovic beat No. 23 Daniela Hantuchova 6-4, 6-2, while Shvedova beat Jarmila Groth 6-4, 6-3. In men’s fourth-round matches, Rafael Nadal improved to 200-16 on clay over his career by overcoming four breaks of serve to defeat No. 24 Thomaz Bellucci 6-2, 7-5, 6-4. A year ago, Now Nadal will meet No. 19 Nicolas Almagro, who knocked off No. 7 Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 1-6, 6-1, 6-4. Also Monday, No. 3 Novak Djokovic eliminated the last U.S. man in the tournament, 98th-ranked Robby Ginepri, 6-4, 2-6, 6-1, 6-2. No. 22 Jurgen Melzer beat Teimuraz Gabashvili 7-6 (6), 4-6, 6-1, 6-4.

Heels slip into NCAA field BY DENNIS WASZAK JR. Associated Press

NEW YORK — Arizona State made it easy for the NCAA selection committee. The Sun Devils (47-8) overcame a sudden coaching change before the season, won the Pac-10 title and were chosen Monday as the top seed for the 64-team Division I college baseball tournament. The other national seeds, in order, are: Texas (46-11), Florida (42-15), Coastal Carolina (51-7), Virginia (47-11), UCLA (43-13), Louisville (48-12) and Georgia Tech (45-13). The ACC Pac-10 and SEC each had eight teams selected, all-time highs for both the ACC and Pac-10. “It was a unique feature for us, especially when it came to trying to determine how we distribute these teams from a regional standpoint,” committee chairman Tim Weiser said. North Carolina, which has made four straight College World Series appearances, made the tournament as an at-large selection despite not qualifying for the ACC tournament. The Tar Heels (36-20) have been ranked in the top 30 for much of the season. “We have not had that as a criteria, and we have not suggested to the membership that they have to make a conference tournament,” Weiser said. “I think in North Carolina’s case, the argument can be made that they had a very good season.” North Carolina earned the No. 3 seed in the Norman Regional. It will play No. 2 seed Cal (29-23) on Friday night. The other game involves No. 1 seed Oklahoma and No. 4 seed Oral Roberts. N.C. State (38-22) is the No. 3 seed in the Myrtle Beach Regional. The Wolfpack will face No. 2 seed College of Charleston (42-17) on Friday night. Florida International’s Garrett Wittels will carry a 54-game hitting streak into the Coral Gables Regional and an opening-round matchup against Texas A&M. Wittels is four games shy of matching Robin Ventura’s Division I record of 58 consecutive games with at least one hit, set in 1987 for Oklahoma State.

BRAVES FROM 1C

Philadelphia, which was shut out in five of its previous eight games, had just three hits off Hanson (5-3) before the right-hander left with two outs in the seventh. Lowering his ERA to 3.78, Hanson struck out two and did not allow a walk after issuing three in the first two innings. The righthander benefited from double plays that ended scoring threats in the first and second. “Those were huge,” Hanson said. “They set our defense, and I started hitting my spots and throwing a little more strikes.”

“Late in the year you’re always matched up with everyone else’s best,” Wittels said. “It’s win or go home basically. I know it’s twogame elimination, but every game really counts.” Mercer, which won the Atlantic Sun Conference tournament, is the lone team making its first appearance. New Mexico is in for the first time since 1962, while Oregon is playing in the tournament for the first time since 1964. The Ducks are in their second season since restarting their program under former Cal State Fullerton coach George Horton. Miami extended its NCAA record by making its 38th consecutive appearance, while Florida State is in for the 33rd straight year. The Seminoles are the only No. 1 seed not hosting a regional. They’ll travel to Norwich, Conn., where Connecticut is the host team after the selection committee chose to place a regional in a nontraditional geographical area. “I think we felt like if we could do this without sacrificing the integrity of our seeding process and what we consider to be our top 16 seeds, we at least needed to explore that,” Weiser said. “It was the right thing to do given the option of a Northeast location that we don’t usually have.” Two teams with losing records earned automatic berths by winning their conference titles: Patriot League champion Bucknell (25-33) and Southwestern Conference winner Grambling (22-30). Weiser said the committee had to consider about 12 teams for the tournament’s last two spots. Among schools left out were: Kentucky, Texas State and Pittsburgh. East Carolina went 32-27 this season, Charlotte (39-17) lost to Saint Louis in the Conference USA title game and Appalachian State went 38-18-1. The 16 regional winners move on to the best-of-three super regionals, with those winners advancing to the College World Series, which begins June 19 in Omaha, Neb. It will be the last one played at Rosenblatt Stadium, the home of college baseball’s premier event since 1950. The eight-team championship will move to a new ballpark in downtown Omaha next season.

Atlanta took a 3-0 lead in the first on Jones’ third homer, a two-run shot, and Eric Hinske’s RBI single. In the third, the Braves went up 60 on an RBI by Hinske and Yunel Escobar’s two-run double. Glaus’ eighth homer, a three-run shot in the seventh off reliever Chad Durbin, made it 9-3. Braves manager Bobby Cox is proud of his team’s recent surge, but he isn’t about to count out the Phillies. “There’s a lot of baseball left, but we have made a great recovery,” he said. “We bent a little bit, but we never broke.” The Phillies began the game as the first club since the 1992 Chicago Cubs to get shut out five times over an eight-game span, according to the team.

Ten Things you can do today to stop global warming.

1. Change a light. REPLACING ONE REGULAR LIGHT BULB WITH A COMPACT FLUORESCENT LIGHT BULB WILL SAVE 150 POUNDS OF CARBON DIOXIDE A YEAR. 2. Drive less. WALK, BIKE, CARPOOL OR TAKE A BUS MORE OFTEN. YOU’LL SAVE ONE POUND OF CARBON DIOXIDE FOR EVERY MILE YOU DON’T DRIVE! 3. Recycle more. YOU CAN SAVE 2400 POUNDS OF CARBON DIOXIDE PER YEAR BY RECYCLING JUST HALF OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD WASTE! 4. Check your tires. KEEPING YOUR TIRES INFLATED PROPERLY CAN IMPROVE GAS MILEAGE BY MORE THAN 3%. AND EVERY GALLON OF GASOLINE SAVED KEEPS 20 POUNDS OF CARBON DIOXIDE OUT OF THE ATMOSPHERE!

5. Use less hot water. INSTALL A LOW FLOW SHOWERHEAD (350 POUNDS OF CO2 SAVED PER YEAR) AND WASHING YOUR CLOTHES IN COLD WATER (500 POUNDS SAVED PER YEAR) 6. Avoid products with a lot of packaging. YOU CAN SAVE 1200 POUNDS OF C02 IF YOU CUT DOWN YOUR GARBAGE BY 10%. 7. Adjust your thermostat. MOVING YOUR THERMOSTAT 2 DEGREES IN WINTER AND UP 2 DEGREES IN SUMMER COULD SAVE ABOUT 2000 POUNDS OF CARBON DIOXIDE A YEAR. 8. Plant a tree. A SINGLE TREE WILL ABSORB ONE TON OF CARBON DIOXIDE OVER ITS LIFETIME. 9. Turn off electronic devices. TURNING OFF YOUR TV, DVD, STEREO AND COMPUTER WHEN YOU’RE NOT USING THEM WILL SAVE THOUSANDS OF LBS. OF CO2 A YEAR. 10. Go online.

TEDDER FROM 1C

He comes from a school where the coaching staff was as stable as West Rowan’s or A.L. Brown’s. “We had four or five guys who were there 10 years or more,” he said. When head coach Barry Mitchem left West Davidson to be Carson’s first offensive line coach, West Davidson defensive coordinator Dale Barnes was promoted to head coach. Tedder, who had been the defensive line and special teams coach, made the natural progression to defensive coordinator. “I was Dale’s right-hand man for many years, and our defensive packages were a blend of his ideas and mine,” Tedder said. “I learned more

football from Dale than anyone, and I learned a lot about offensive-line play from Coach Mitchem.” Most years, West Davidson had good athletes with superior work ethics. Their daily motto was “Let’s go to work.” Stable, creative coaching also was a factor in the rural school competing with traditional powers such as Salisbury and Lexington. From 1999-2008, West Davidson was 73-47. It collected CCC banners in 2007 and 2008. The system was ball-control, power offense and hard-nosed defense. The Green Dragons actually beat Salisbury three years in a row from 2005-07, when the Hornets weren’t losing to very many people. The son of a coach, Tedder spent his childhood in gyms dreaming of following in his father’s footsteps.

SALISBURY POST

Tedder was coaching at West Davidson while still doing his student teaching in 1994, and the Appalachian State graduate never found a reason to leave. West Davidson officially hired him as a teacher in 1996 when a P.E. job opened up, and he’s been thrilled to be a Green Dragon. Tedder grew up in the Enochville community in southern Rowan County. His parents were teachers. Jim Tedder coached at Cannon Junior High in Kannapolis and at A.L. Brown. Tedder’s parents decided to move back to their Montgomery roots when he was set to enter the seventh grade at Corriher-Lipe. Tedder played on both lines for West Montgomery’s football team before heading to Appalachian to pursue a P.E. degree and coaching future.

He’s coached wrestling and track at West Davidson, but he’ll get to concentrate exclusively on football at East. Even with head-coaching responsibilities, he figures to have more family time than he’s had handling three sports. “I asked my son what he thought about me being a head coach, and he liked that idea,” Tedder said. “Then I asked him, ‘But what if it’s not at West Davidson?’ He had to think about that, but he was all for it if it meant I’d have more time with him. That’s what really sold me.” Look for Drew Tedder as a future East ballboy. He filled that role for the West Davidson jayvees last season. Tedder already knows about returning quarterback Jamey Blalock, who accounted for 17 touchdowns as

a junior while putting up 836 rushing yards and 824 passing yards. “(Principal) Kelly Sparger told me he’s a super kid and someone all the players look up to,” Tedder said. “That’s a great start. I can’t wait to meet him and all the players.” Tedder plans to meet with his new assistants today. He realizes how critical they are to any future success. “Guys on a coaching staff have to be like brothers during that long season,” he said. He hopes to meet face-to-face with the players by Thursday. He’ll tell them he expects to see them graduate and expects to coach their little brothers down the road. “I’m not looking at East as a jumping-off point to some higher job,” he said. “This is my dream job right here. If they want me and if they like what I’m doing, I’ll be here until I retire.”

Thomas Allen, a UNC Pembroke signee who is East’s No. 1 starter, has pitched only 12⁄3 innings in the playoffs because of an injury. Troutman, Parker Gobbel, jayvee call-up Alex Bost, Bradley Robbins and relief whiz Will Johnson have performed admirably. The Mustangs won a 3A state title in 1995, and Hunt is making its second championship series appearance. It played South Mecklenburg for the 4A title in 1989 and lost in three games. The Warriors’ top players, listed with their college destinations, are pitcher Zack Lee (Francis Marion), third baseman Zach Houchins (Louisburg), second baseman Cody Britt (Wilkes) and catcher Kyle Pittman.

Vick passed the information along to Norman, who attended the 1A/2A/3A state indoor meet held in Chapel Hill on Feb. 20. Summers finished fifth in the mile and also competed in the 1,000 meters. Summers was playing VICK basketball with Isaiah Goodman and some other friends at Jersey City Park when a call from Norman led to an extended timeout. “I kind of went off to talk, and they were giving me a hard time because we were in the middle of a game,” Summers said. “They were like, ‘You need to hurry up because we’re trying to finish this game,’ and it was getting kind of dark.” Summers visited UNCA about two weeks after the state indoor meet. He said he liked the campus setting and the program’s commitment to its distance runners. Norman won 3A state titles in the 3,200 and 1,600 for Fuquay-Varina before becoming a Western Carolina standout. Vick ran for both St. Andrews and UNCA. Summers is known for his closing speed, and a strong finish to the mile at the state indoor meet impressed Norman. “A lot of times when freshmen get up here, everybody they run against is as good as they are,” he said. “The fact that somebody is out of the race and runs themself back into it really impresses me. When I saw that, I got really excited. I was like, ‘There goes somebody that doesn’t give up easily. That’s somebody I can work with to get faster and stronger down the road.’ ”

A new old doctor joins Salisbury Chiropractic

TUESDAY, JUNE 1, 2010

David D. Godwin, DC, returns to his roots Dr. David Godwin is a native of Salisbury as is his wife, Lori — Cleveland, to be specific. They both graduated from West Rowan and he from Catawba where he received his BA in Chemistry and Biology in 1979, after which he attended graduate school at the University of SC in pursuit of a PhD in Biochemistry. Unhappy with the thought of a career spent behind closed doors in a laboratory, he changed directions at the encouragement of a chiropractor friend in Mooresville, and so 29 years ago, he entered Chiropractic college. He and Lori ultimately landed in Connecticut where they ended up staying and practicing for 25 years, in the small town of Canaan. Canaan's proximity to New York City made for an eclectic patient base, including numerous celebrity types and even a few academy award winners. Perhaps of greater interest, though, is Dr. Godwin's association with a different sort of celebrity who is known here as well — Dr. Peter Gott of "Ask Dr. Gott" fame. Godwin even now writes a recurring guest column on his friend Peter’s website, "AskDrGott.com." David and Lori's return home to Salisbury is an amazing tale of "it was meant to be” proportions. They came to Cleveland on Christmas Eve in 2008, as a surprise visit to Lori's parents. It was at that time they began to understand that they needed to come back "home." His parents had already passed, but like Lori's parents were now doing, they had pleaded with them to move back as well. On their drive back to Connecticut after that Christmas visit they discussed the complexities of the situation the entire 12 hours. Did he really want to leave an established 25 year practice with a large, hard-earned patient base? He had a very close association with the local medical community where not only did they routinely refer patients to his office but they themselves and their families were his patients. Did he want to start all over as the unknown new guy in town? What about the children? They enjoyed visiting North Carolina but did they want to live there? He would need to sell his practice, the office building, their home — AND get a license to practice in NC. On this end, they'd need to find a home in the area here and to find a place to prac-

tice. All this in an economy that was the worst in years, especially for the housing market. By the time they were back in Connecticut they had made the decision to move, along with their four children, taking them away from the only home they had known. Two of them, twin daughters adopted from Romania when they were 7, were 13 at that time and would be the hardest hit for having to leave those friends who had helped them in their transition to America. They had already changed schools twice. Would they transition well to yet another school and new friends? They prayed and questioned if they were making the right decision. They decided that if it was meant to be then all of the pieces would fall in place. So David listed his practice for sale that spring at various chiropractic schools and state associations, but decided not to list their home, in case the house sold and the practice didn’t. He began taking the various exams necessary to be able to take the NC board exam for licensing — a daunting task for someone who had been out of school for 25 years. In September of 2009 he received a call from a chiropractor who had been practicing in New Jersey but wanted to move to Connecticut to be closer to her family. She came to see the practice and seemed quite enthusiastic about it -- so much so that David and Lori decided to go ahead and put their house on the market. They were still concerned that the practice would sell but not their home, due to the market conditions. However, the very next day before Lori could call the agent, they received a call from HIM stating that he remembered they had an interest in putting their house on the market in the spring — and were they still interested, because he thought he had someone who wanted to buy it! Within 2 days the house was sold. The other chiropractor then committed to buying the practice and the building. The pieces of the puzzle had begun falling into place. David and Lori now needed a home in Rowan County and a place for him to hang his shingle. Dr. Michael Pryor at Salisbury Chiropractic, David's former brother-in-law, was now running the

chiropractic program at the VA Medical Center, while continuing his practice by working lunches and evenings. Dr. Pryor was looking for someone who could take over his practice to free him up to concentrate on the VA. So David had a place to hang his shingle! Another piece in place. Now for a home. Since childhood, Lori had an interest in a house in her hometown of Cleveland. It was just outside the doors of the church she attended as a young girl. It was during their visit home that Christmas that they found out that the home was, amazingly, about to go on the market. However, they were not in a position to make an offer, as they were still "in limbo" in Connecticut. Then right about the time they got a commitment on their home up north, they heard that an offer had been made on the Cleveland home and had been accepted. With sadness, they felt that their amazing puzzle had stopped coming together. But just as they began looking into other possibilities, the prospective buyers backed out and the house was back on the market. So, of course, guess where the Godwins live now! They bought it without ever seeing the inside, except for pictures. And so the puzzle was active again. The weekend after the closing David took the NC state board and passed. He now had his license, a new place to practice, his old practice and building sold, their old home sold and a new home to move into. All of the pieces had fallen into place to complete the puzzle that seemed so daunting almost exactly a year earlier.

here in Salisbury since the first of the year. He enjoys meeting the new faces in the office, many of which remind him of the patients he had in Connecticut . "They just now speak with a bit of a southern drawl," he says with a laugh. Their daughters have transitioned nicely and have made new friends and also enjoy having family on hand to dote over them. One of their sons remained in New England to attend college in Boston and their other son relocated with them and will be following the family tradition of attending Catawba College. The Godwins live about a mile from Lori's parents and can get together almost daily. Instead of discussing American Idol over the phone, they now all watch it together. David admits that sometimes they do miss their lives in Connecticut. They enjoyed their proximity to NYC and Boston and the New England countryside. They miss the many friends they left behind in the small town where everybody knew everybody. They were active in the community and the church where David was on the board of trustees. But he and Lori have been visiting new churches in Rowan County, and they are ultimately happy to be back "home." They love the sunshine and warm temperatures and all of the friendly people full of southern hospitality as well as BBQ, iced tea and hotdogs and hamburgers “all the way”. David remarks that they do miss the Capitol and Terrace Theaters and the 601 Drive-In — obviously many changes have occurred in the area since they left 29 years ago!

SOMETIMES IT’S JUST THE SMALL STUFF The loss of a loved one through death or divorce, the empty-nest syndrome, a financial crisis, or ill health due to age or disease, can be mindaltering circumstances. These may require long periods of healing. But sometimes it’s just the “smallstuff” that may ruin a moment, an hour, or a day. An unexpected storm can really screw up a picnic, a camping trip, or worst of all an outdoor wedding. Small things like ants or mosquitoes can mess up a picnic or a walk in the evening. A gentle breeze can improve a stroll in the park anytime, but a tornado can destroy people, places, or things. Forgetting one ingredient can ruin a favorite recipe. I know from personal experience that you won’t forget the vanilla flavoring in homemade banana pudding but once. Omitting the salt or baking soda or powder when using plain flour will remind you to buy self-rising flour the next time. It was interesting that the Sunday after I started writing this, one of my favorite preachers, Joel Osteen, preached on “Don’t sweat the small stuff.” I found that I agreed with almost everything he said: “Don’t make a mountain out of a mole hill.” “Go with the flow.” “Is it a five-minute, five-hour, or five-day problem?” “Try to see the humor in a five-minute problem.” “This too shall pass.” Sometimes it helps if we can see that God gets our attention through the “small stuff.” There are a lot of lessons we can learn. For example: At times I have to bite my tongue or at least curb my anger before I bring it to someone’s attention that I don’t appreciate the fact that in spite of my $20 sign on my handicapped accessible van, they still blocked me in. How many times has that happened now? This time it was a motorcycle parked between me and a tree. I guess he wanted to park in the shade too, but there were other shady places. I sat at Hurley Park writing about this when Kathy Chaffin from The Salisbury Post stopped to chat with me. It was so sweet when she wrote about our conversation and said, “Watching the peaceful expression on her face as she wrote, it appeared that the little aggravation may have been quickly forgotten.” She was right! Sitting there by the fountain listening to the water, the birds, and feeling the peace of God, I was putting another “small thing” in my

collection of stories of the events that happen in my life. Like Joel Osteen said, this was a five-minute problem. Now on the other hand, had I not found the owner of the motorcycle, it could have become a fivehour problem. Under those circumstances, the mole hill might have become a mountain. I heard a motorcycle joke once that went something like this: A large gang of bike riders went into a diner where one lone man was eating a hamburger. One tough guy tried to get the fellow’s attention by making some derogatory remarks and messing with the man’s food. The bully tried every way he could to raise the guy’s hackles but the man ignored him, finished his meal, paid the bill and left. The rough neck said to the bartender, “He’s not much of a man, is he?” The bartender replied, “He ain’t much of a driver either; he just plowed down all those motorcycles out there.” Now if I didn’t have Jesus in my heart after five hours or five days of a little mole hill becoming a mountainous problem, I might not be much of a driver either. I’ve heard a lot of comments about how well I can handle my scooter. I always tell folks if I can’t handle it after sixteen years, there would be no good excuse. (But I do go out of my way not to hit people, cars, or motorcycles.) There are some days that temptation to be hateful, mean, or ugly could get hold of me if I were not a firm believer who wants to be more “Christ-like” in all I do. So back to the “small stuff;” a handicapped person has to perform in a bigger way than healthy people. Even now as multiple sclerosis shows itself again, the difficulty of standing, dressing, and transferring reminds me of the difference between small mole hills and major mountain ranges. But I’m still not confined to bed, I can read and write, and still drive the van, so I am blessed with that peace that Kathy saw on my face. Now if you happen to see a black van with a white sign on the passenger side that reads “Ramp van, allow 8’ for clearance,” and it is parked in a haphazard way or hogging two parking spaces, just smile and think something like this: “Well, Linda is practicing selfdefense and she is at peace.” Even if you want one of those parking spaces, find peace and don’t sweat the “small stuff.” I doubt if I will ever be in one place five hours.

Myths and misconceptions of long-term health care Submitted by Eric Brady

Undernourishment and malnutrition are serious problems for America’s growing 65+ population. In fact, as many as half of all seniors cared for at home suffer from being under- or malnourished (Mayo Clinic/American Dietetic Association). To raise awareness for this growing problem, in conjunction with Older Americans Month in May, Comfort Keepers kicked off a nationwide Serving Seniors. Nourishing Lives. initiative to collect healthy food items for distribution to seniors in the community. “Malnutrition and undernourishment in seniors are not always obvious, so caregivers and loved ones should pay special attention to the signs,” said Lori Eberly, owner of the local Comfort Keepers. “About 30 million older Americans live with chronic diseases that nutrition therapies can effectively manage and treat, so some simple dietary changes can make a big difference for seniors.” Beginning in May and contin-

uing through the summer months, Comfort Keepers would like to encourage people to make food donations that have added nutritional value for seniors. "During the summer months many food pantries do not have a sufficient supply of food to distribute and we wanted to do our part , starting in May which is Older Americans month, to ensure that area seniors are able to get the food that they need in order to remain nourished.', said Eberly. Comfort Keepers® recommends the following foods for donation: peanut butter, lowsodium canned vegetables and soups, and protein-rich meal substitutes. Food donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday 9:30a-5p at Comfort Keepers, 1717 W Innes St, Salisbury NC 28144. Any business or organization interested in collecting food at their location for the Comfort Keepers Serving Seniors. Nourishing Lives Food Drive can contact Comfort Keepers at 704-630-0370 or via email at lorieberly@comfortkeepers.com

Comfort Keepers® is a leading franchise network in the in-home care market for senior and other adults needing care. Since its founding in 1998, the company has grown to approximately 610 independently owned and operated franchise locations around the world by maintaining the founders’ goal of providing in-home care services that allowed their clients the opportunity to age in place. In August of 2009, CK Franchising, Inc.’s brand was strengthened even further when it was purchased by Sodexo, one of the world’s leading food and facilities management services companies and the global leader in the health care and seniors markets.

One of the easiest summer treats -- requiring no more prep than a good rinsing -- is to sit down with a big bowl of cherries and simply enjoy them in their natural form. But these fruits have far more versatility than that and they make even simple recipes shine. Even the most dedicated cooks often look for simplified recipes in the summer, to avoid standing by a hot oven or stove top. But whether you're a beginner or an astute foodie, you can easily put together dishes - from the main course to fresh Bing cherry pie for dessert -- that will impress family and friends. Main dish: Don't be afraid to try out cherries in unexpected ways. A dressed-up salad can be a perfect summer evening meal. While greens and grilled chicken are a well-loved pairing, tossing in some chopped cherries adds a new dimension. Try adding toasted walnuts and crumbles of a mild bleu cheese to the mix as well.

(ARA) - The pleasures of summer -- its warm temperatures, its long days, its holidays and its bounty of fresh foods -- make it an infinitely lovable season. It's no wonder we look forward to it throughout the rest of the year. Many people plant fruits and vegetables in late spring, after the last danger of frost has passed, but the wait to harvest those treats can be long. Luckily, a bounty of fruit is ready at the start of summer, in the form of sweet Bing cherries.

Drink it in: Skip the boring beverages - you can make your own drinks that will really be a hit. After pitting, put Bing cherries in your blender and liquefy. Then, strain the liquid into pre-made lemonade for a memorable cherry lemonade. For a more grown-up approach, add sliced cherries to red wine for a sweet take on sangria. Sweet side: Get creative with fruit salad to accompany your main dishes. Melon and grape mixes are a bit overdone -- be inspired by colors and flavors, and don't be afraid to try something new. Grab a cherry pitter to make the prep work a little easier, and combine California Bing cherries with other dark fruits, like blackberries, plums and black grapes; or, use their rich color as a counterpoint to lighter fruits. For a little zing, add grated ginger or slivered mint to taste.

Our editorial board will choose timely and relevant material for publication in an upcoming issue and notify you if your piece is chosen.

Just desserts: Pie can be an intimidating dish, partially because it is often an involved process that yields a dessert only after hours of complicated labor. But the baking-phobic who love the dessert can breathe a sigh of relief: there is such a thing as an easy cherry pie recipe. The California Cherry Advisory Board's "Easy as Bing Cherry Pie" is as simple as it gets -- with foolproof, delicious results.

Easy as Bing Cherry Pie Ingredients: Bottom crust: 1 (9-inch) refrigerated pie crust Pie filling: 5 cups fresh California Bing cherries, pitted 1 cup sugar 1 tablespoon tapioca flour Crumb topping: 1/2 cup regular rolled oats 1/4 cup white sugar 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon butter, melted 1/2 tsp pinch ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp salt Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Step 1: Crust. A wide selection of pre-made pie crusts is available in the refrigerator or frozen section of your local grocery store. Most will come in an oven-safe aluminum pie pan. (Note: It is a good idea to place the pan on a cookie sheet for stability while assembling and then place in the oven.) Step 2: Pit cherries. Fresh Bing cherries must be pitted for this recipe. And, since you'll need 5 cups, this step is the most time-consuming in the process. However, a simple cherry pitting device can likely be purchased at your grocery store and will do the job quite nicely. Make sure to wear an apron in case you splatter juice. If you have young children around, they may enjoy helping to pit the cherries. More hands will make the job go much faster, but it is recommended taking this activity outside. Step 3: Filling. Combine the pitted cherries in a bowl with sugar and tapioca flour. Mix well and spoon into the prepared pie crust. Step 4. Topping. Technically, a pie with a crumb topping is called a crisp. But those who eat this dish will love it so much they won't care what it's called. Simply combine the remaining ingredients - oats, sugar, flour, softened butter, cinnamon and salt - into a small bowl and mix until evenly distributed and crumbly. Sprinkle over the top of the filling. Place in the oven and bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 325 and bake for another 30 to 40 minutes until bubbly and browned on top. Allow to cool to room temperature. Top each slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Serves eight.

Get Help Getting Your Prescription Medications (NAPSI)-While prescription drugs can improve and prolong life, too many people fail to take their medicines as prescribed. According to the National Institutes of Health, such noncompliance is an important predictor of emergency room visits and hospital admissions, yet millions of people with chronic conditions are not getting the medication they need because they do not have health insurance coverage or are struggling financially. Fortunately, America's pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies lend a helping hand. The Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA) is a nationwide effort to help uninsured and financially struggling Americans connect with patient assistance programs that provide medicines at low or even no cost. PPA-which just celebrated its fifth anniversary-recently passed a major milestone, assisting more than 6.5 million people. Making things even easier, said Billy Tauzin, president and CEO of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), is PPA's effort to "use the latest technology available to ensure those who need help can get it." PPA now has a text hotline and smart phone application to ensure 24/7 access to information about the more than 475 participating programs. These new features give health care providers, patient advocates and patients even better access to information about participating patient assistance programs.

People who qualify may have access to more than 2,500 brand-name and generic prescription medicines. In addition, the PPA provides information on over 10,000 free clinics. It has connected more than 300,000 people with clinics and health care providers. More than 133 million Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease, which cause seven out of 10 deaths in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "Too many are struggling financially and the numbers of those losing health care benefits may continue to rise," Tauzin said. "This can be a scary time, especially considering the prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and asthma.'' Helping spread the word is former "Leave it to Beaver" star and PPA spokesman Jerry Mathers. "I've been urging people to pick up the phone, log on to the website to see if they qualify for assistance," he said. "As a patient who must cope with diabetes, I understand only too well the importance of access to the medicine you need." Anyone needing help with medicines can call (888) 4-PPA-NOW to talk to a trained operator or go to www.pparx.org. It takes only 10 to 15 minutes to find out if you qualify for free or nearly free medications.

What is Medicare Fraud?

Fraud occurs when an individual or organization deliberately deceives others in order to gain unauthorized benefit. Medicare and Medicaid fraud generally involves deliberately billing for services that were not received, or billing for a service at a higher rate than is actually justified.

What is Medicare Abuse? Medicare abuse occurs when providers supply services or products that are not medically necessary or that do not meet professional standards. - Examples of Fraud and Abuse - Billing for services and supplies that were not provided - Obtaining Medicare number for “free” services - Billing for equipment not delivered

Reminiscing Helps Ward off Depression, Study Reveals by Robin M. Perry

Q: My 85-year-old dad, who was a successful businessman, seems depressed lately and I’m not sure what I can do to pull him out of the blues. He’s starting to experience a little dementia and I know he struggles with loneliness, since he lives by himself. Reliving your dad’s glory days may help. A new study of 158 Georgia centenarians has found that past satisfaction with life, even if it's simply recalling isolated career accomplishments, is the key to happiness in our oldest years. Researchers from Iowa State University's gerontology program have helped identify what predicts happiness and long life in centenarians, as well as what causes depression in seniors 80 and older.

- “Upcoding” - improper coding to obtain a higher payment - Unneeeded or excessive x-rays and lab tests; claims for services that are not medically necessary - Billing for excessive medical supplies - Using another person’s Medicare card to obtain medical care, supplies or equipment For assitance, concact the NC SMP Program at SHIIP: 1-800-443-9354 or visit www.ncshiip.com or www.smpresource.org

Let Dad Know He’s Special.

TUESDAY, JUNE 1, 2010

All your life, Dad’s worked to comfort, guide and support you. Now that Dad needs your support, doesn’t he deserve the best you can give? At Carillon Assisted Living, he’ll enjoy a warm, caring environment that emphasizes social activities, health and wellness for adults who simply need assistance with day-to-day living. And The Garden Place at Carillon provides unsurpassed care for people with Alzheimer’s, whether it’s long term or respite care. Help for Dad that includes respect and dignity – we think that’s pretty special.

Your dad’s cognitive decline also could be contributing to depression, researchers discovered. For the depression study, researchers added 78 octogenarians (people 80 or older) to the happiness centenarian sample. They found that diminished cognitive problem-solving ability was a significant predictor of depression in octogenarians, while living in a nursing home increased depression among centenarians. Researchers also were surprised to learn that overall cognition was not a stronger predictor of depression at either age. Rather, it was the loss of the subject's control -- problem-solving in the octogenarians, and choosing where they lived in the centenarians -- that tended to depress them. While there was no indication that resources affect happiness, past life satisfaction, even individual achievements, was found to have a direct association. Why not help your dad reminisce by reconnecting with others with whom he could share stories. Senior centers, like Rufty-Homes Senior Center and churches are good places to go. Or consider hiring a caregiver companion who would love to hear all about his life. Home Instead Senior Care® hires CAREGiversSM who love to listen.

Survey: Many Americans Unaware Of Stroke-Certified Hospitals

(NAPSI)-Six out of 10 Americans do not know if stroke specialty hospitals exist in their communities, according to a new American Stroke Association survey. Yet stroke can happen to anyone at any time. Every year, 795,000 people have a stroke--that's one person every 40 seconds. More than 80 percent of the U.S. population (250 million residents) lives within an hour's drive of a Joint Commission−certified primary stroke center or state-designated stroke center, according to the American Stroke Association. More than 68 percent (211 million residents) lives within a 30-minute drive. However, in a survey of 1,000 people throughout the United States, 58 percent of respondents said they don't know if hospitals in their community are stroke certified--though 72 percent said they believe it's "very important" or "somewhat important" that they know where stroke-certified hospitals are located in their area. "Everyone should know the stroke warning signs and know which hospitals are better equipped to handle strokes," said Ralph Sacco, M.D., neurologist, presidentelect of the American Heart Association and chairman of neurology/professor of neurology, epidemiology and human genetics at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. "If you experience someone having a stroke, then 9-1-1 should be called immediately for urgent attention." Hospitals may earn certification as stroke specialty centers based on having

special staffing and processes in place to handle stroke emergencies. The amount of certified stroke centers has nearly doubled in the last five years. Today, there are more than 640 primary stroke centers certified by The Joint Commission--a private, nonprofit organization that provides certification programs for health care organizations. A stroke occurs when the blood flow to an area of the brain is interrupted. The resulting lack of oxygen and glucose can lead to the death of brain cells and brain damage. This can result in impaired speech, movement and/or memory. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and a leading cause of severe, long-term disability. Nearly three-quarters of all strokes occur in people over 65; however, nearly one-quarter of strokes occur in people under 65. "If certification is not feasible for rural or other underserved area hospitals, then we will explore linking them with primary stroke centers through telemedicine to increase patient access to stroke specialists and eliminate disparities in access to acute stroke care," Sacco said.

Creatively cut the fat: substitute with apples

TUESDAY, JUNE 1, 2010

(ARA) - Looking to eat better? Tried low-fat and reduced-sodium products, but they just don't taste the same? If you want to modify your diet without giving up the tastes you love, substituting natural ingredients, rather than modified versions of unhealthy ingredients, could do the trick.

By using these steps as a guide, you can also come up with your own healthy substitutions that you might think would be particularly flavorful. You never know, you might find yourself liking the new flavors more than those that resulted from using less healthy ingredients.

With a little ingenuity, you can find ways to work healthier alternatives into your diet that might lead to more satisfying eating. Take apples - the fruit can be used for much more than just a healthy snack or side item during lunch. Products made from apples, an excellent source of vitamin C and other nutrients, can easily be substituted for butter, sugar and other less healthy products.

Tree Top also offers the following healthy recipes that use apple products as substitution:

Tree Top, a cooperative of 1,000 grower-owners and producer of apple sauce, apple juice and a variety of other apple products, offers these suggestions for using apple products as substitutes. * Replace butter with apple sauce in baking recipes. This will cut the fat in a recipe by nearly 75 percent. Using apple sauce will create a moist, light cake or brownie batter that is lower in fat and higher in both vitamin C and fiber. * Marinate meat or fish in different varieties of apple juice to add extra flavoring without the extra sodium and substantial calories.

TERI-APPLE CHICKEN WINGS Ingredients: 1 cup apple sauce 1/3 cup soy sauce 1/4 cup salad oil 2 tablespoons molasses 2 teaspoons ground ginger 2 teaspoons dry mustard 1 tablespoons garlic powder 2 tablespoons orange marmalade 3 to 4 pounds chicken wings

* Freeze different varieties of apple juice in plastic cups to make frozen treats or in ice cube trays to zest up water and encourage its consumption.

Directions: Combine all ingredients, except wings if they will be served as appetizers. To disjoint, cut off small tip at joint and discard. Then cut at other joint, making two small drumstick looking pieces. Put chicken wings in a shallow pan and pour sauce over. Refrigerate, covered, four hours or overnight. Bake at 350 F for about one hour, or until meat is tender. Spoon the sauce over the top while cooking.

* Add more fruit and flavor to your diet with apple iced tea. Just replace half the water with apple juice instead.

Tree Top offers more ways to use fruit as a healthier alternative in cooking at www.TreeTop.com.

* Reduce the sugar used in many recipes by replacing white sugar with apple juice concentrate. Use 3/4 cup of concentrate for every cup of sugar.

We offer a homelike environment with friendly competent staff.

REMEMBERING FALLEN HEROES

Scientists warn of unseen disaster

Researchers find massive underwater plumes of oil

Blackwell said. “My only regret was that I have not gone every year. But I surely will now.” Blackwell read a proclamation from Mayor Susan Kluttz in honor of Memorial Day. “It was very moving,” Blackwell said. This was the fourth year

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Independent scientists and government officials say there’s a disaster we can’t see in the Gulf of Mexico’s mysterious depths, the ruin of a world inhabited by enormous sperm whales and tiny, invisible plankton. Researchers have said they have found at least two massive underwater plumes of what appears to be oil, each hundreds of feet deep and stretching for miles. Yet the chief executive of BP PLC — which has for weeks downplayed everything from the amount of oil spewing into the Gulf to the environmental impact — said there is “no evidence” that huge amounts of oil are suspended undersea. BP CEO Tony Hayward said the oil naturally gravitates to the surface — and any oil below was just making its way up. However, researchers say the disaster in waters where light doesn’t shine through could ripple across the food chain. “Every fish and invertebrate contacting the oil is probably dying. I have no doubt about that,” said Prosanta Chakrabarty, a Louisiana State University fish biologist. On the surface, a 24-hour camera fixed on the spewing, blown-out well and the images of dead, oil-soaked birds have been evidence of the calamity. At least 20 million gallons of oil and possibly 43 million gallons have spilled since the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded and sank in April. That has far eclipsed the 11 million gallons released during the Exxon Valdez spill off Alaska’s coast in 1989. But there is no camera to capture what happens in the rest of the vast Gulf, which sprawls across 600,000 square miles and reaches more than 14,000 feet at its deepest point. Every night, the denizens of the deep make forays to shallower depths to eat — and be eaten by — other fish, according to marine scientists who describe it as the largest migration on earth. In turn, several species closest to the surface — including red snapper, shrimp and menhaden — help drive the Gulf Coast fishing industry. Others such as marlin, cobia and yellowfin tuna sit atop the food chain and are chased by the Gulf’s charter fishing fleet. Many of those species are now in their annual spawning seasons. Eggs exposed to oil would quickly perish. Those that survived to hatch could

Ceremonies honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice B Y H UGH F ISHER

hfisher@salisburypost.com

Across Salisbury on Memorial Day, everyday residents stopped to pay their respects to those who died in service to their country. At the historic National Cemetery downtown, the color guard of the Sons of Union Veterans marched in solemnly. And, as the notes of “Taps” sounded, young and old alike looked on at the flags and the stones that honor both those who died at war and those who returned home after serving. “I feel it’s my duty,” said Craig Hipkins, who was there with his 6-year-old son Robbie.

Robbie held a small U.S. flag as he stood by his father’s side. Craig, himself a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, is the great-great-grandson of a Union soldier, George Sullivan. Sullivan emigrated from Ireland and settled in Massachusetts. Today, Craig said, he wants his son to know not just about his family’s military heritage, but about those who died to protect freedom. “If it weren’t for them, we wouldn’t be enjoying the liberties we had today. That’s something I’m trying to instill in him.” There and at the newer National Cemetery annex at the

President, vice president honor America’s troops ELWOOD, Ill. (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden hailed America’s fighting men and women Monday as the “spine of this nation,” while President Barack Obama’s Land of Lincoln tribute got washed out by a severe thunderstorm and high winds. Biden made the more traditional appearance at Arlington National Cemetery on Obama’s behalf, saying the country has “a sacred obligation” to make sure its servicemen and women are the best equipped and best-supported troops in the world. “As a nation, we pause to remember them,” Biden said. “They gave their lives fulfilling their oath to this nation and to us.” Obama had readied a similar message of gratitude for his appearance at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Illinois, and actually had taken the podium to give the address when the skies opened up with a quintessentially midwestern late-spring downpour — thunder, lightning and high winds. Under the cover of a large umbrella, he told thousands gathered before him that while “a little rain never hurt anybody,” nobody wanted “anybody struck by lightning.” He asked people to return to their cars for their safety, and he retreated briefly to an administration building on the ceme-

tery’s grounds. Obama a few minutes later boarded a pair of buses to greet military families that came for the event. Within the hour, reporters who accompanied Obama to the cemetery in Elwood, Ill., were told the speech had been called off. The White House had released copies of Obama’s prepared remarks in advance of his talk, but they were pulled back when the event had to be canceled. Before the storm hit, and in advance of his appearance at the podium, Obama had visited a section of headstones where two Marines awaited him. After laying a wreath, he bowed his head in a moment of silence, his hands tightly clasped. Then a lone bugler played Taps. After leaving the cemetery, Obama met privately with families of veterans and service members currently living at the Fisher House in Hines, Ill. It serves as a home away from home for family members whose loved ones are getting treatment at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Hines, which is about 12 miles west of downtown Chicago. At Arlington, Biden carried out the traditional wreath-laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns under a brilliant sunshine. The vice president, accompanied by Adm. Mike Mullen, chair-

that the ceremony has been held at the new cemetery annex. “With community support, each year this gets bigger and bigger,” cemetery director Gregory Whitney said. He estimated attendance, including volunteers, at more than 350 people.

Older veterans often attend alongside uniformed military personnel not only at memorials like Monday’s ceremony, but at graveside services for veterans who have

That makes it more dangerous to fish larvae and creatures that are filter feeders.

Benham said he was there so his grandson, 6-year-old Cameron, could know about his family’s history and about the sacrifices of those who died. Tricia and Mark Moss of Snow Camp, near Burlington, drove down to the National Cemetery so that their sons, Jonah and Ian, could witness the real meaning of Memorial Day. “People of our generation think of this day as a day to go shopping,” Tricia said. “But I think this should definitely be a day that we stop and think ... It’s such a small sacrifice for us — half a day.” A small price to pay, she said, for those who paid the ultimate price for freedom.

The number of microbes that grow in response to the more concentrated BP spill could tip that system out of balance, LSU oceanographer Mark Benfield said. Too many microbes in the sea could suck oxygen from the water, creating an uninhabitable hypoxic area, or “dead zone.” Preliminary evidence of increased hypoxia in the Gulf was seen during an early May cruise aboard the R/V Pelican, carrying researchers from the University of Georgia, the University of Mississippi and the University of Southern Mississippi.

Dispersing the oil lower into the water column protects beaches, but also keeps it in cooler waters where oil does not break down as fast. That could prolong the oil’s potential to poison fish, said Larry McKinney, director of the Harte Research Institute at Texas A&M UniversityCorpus Christi. “There’s a school of thought that says we’ve made it worse because of the dispersants,” he said.

What is known is that by breaking down oil into smaller droplets, dispersants reduce the oil’s buoyancy, slowing or stalling the crude’s rise to the surface and making it harder to track the spill.

However, his choice to honor our fallen at another national cemetery as other presidents have done is entirely appropriate.â&#x20AC;? In an e-mail, Agg accused some people of using the day â&#x20AC;&#x153;as an opportunity to score cheap political points on the backs of our veterans and in doing so dishonor them and distract from the true meaning and purpose of Memorial Day.â&#x20AC;?

The Osprey program was nearly scrapped after a history of mechanical failures and two test crashes that killed 23 Marines in 2000. But development continued, and the aircraft have been deployed to Iraq. While the General Accounting Office questioned the V-22â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance in a report last year, the Marine Corps has called it effective.

HUGH FISHER / SALISBURY POST

The crew transforms BeBop's Restaurant in China Grove into a scene for the movie 'Insecurity.' The movie, based on a book by local doctor Eric Troyer, is being shot in Rowan and Cabarrus counties for three weeks.

Lights, camera, action Movie based on local author’s novel films at BeBop’s; Meat Loaf among actors in town Monday BY HUGH FISHER

hfisher@salisburypost.com

CHINA GROVE — Wayne Bradshaw didn’t know what to expect when Jason King, location manager for the film “Insecurity,” contacted him about filming at his BeBop’s diner. The first trucks rolled in about 3 a.m. Monday, and after lunchtime crews transformed the diner into a movie set. “Now I know why it costs so much to get into movies” he joked as he watched a crew of about 60 go about their business. By afternoon, cameras were rolling, helping make another local man’s dream a reality. “Insecurity” is based on the novel of the same name that Eric Troyer, a China Grove physician, wrote and published in 2008. It’s being made into a movie starring Eddie Furlong, Meat Loaf, Ed Asner and Grace Johnston. “This has been a thrill,” Troyer said as he sat in a booth at BeBop’s, watching crews make the final preparations for the shoot. Troyer said the project has taken a lot of time and effort, but it’s been worth it. He has collaborated with screenwriter and director Heather Hale to make the film. “It’s incredible, watching the characters come to life and realizing the power of your

As you’d expect, BeBop’s is being used as a diner in the film, where the characters played by Meat Loaf, Furlong and Johnston discuss their next move. Bradshaw said he was contacted by King, and discussed the project with Hale, weeks ago. They planned the shoot for Memorial Day when the restaurant could close without affecting business too much. Decorations were taken down, tables moved and some of the signage rearranged to meet the needs of the movie.

And some locals were brought in to be extras, including Sherry Bradshaw, Wayne’s wife, and two BeBop’s waitresses. For Jennifer Leon, who never has been involved in acting, the chance to appear even in a small way was interesting. She and fellow waitress Kristi Bame serve food and coffee to the characters. Sherry Bradshaw was set to play a cashier. The Bradshaws and others stood out of the way while cameras rolled. “We were kind of skeptical at first,” Sherry said — unsure

what sort of movie it might turn out to be. Even more interesting was the transformation of the restaurant. Several booths became “video village,” where computer equipment and monitors were standing by. A special track was put down for camera dollies to run on. And, because of copyrights and licensing, a lot of the decorations that normally line the walls had to come down. But the crew took photos of the restaurant before filming so that everything could go back to its original state afterward. Locals who watch the movie will want to keep a lookout for the familiar scene, but Troyer said they’ll love the story for its message. Although some elements differ from his novel, Troyer said, the movie has a very strong moral lesson. He described Johnny Graham, played by Furlong, as “a modern-day Moses.”

FORT BRAGG (AP) — The U.S. Army Special Forces Command remembered 18 Special Forces soldiers lost in combat last year. The 42nd annual Special Forces Memorial Day ceremony was held Monday at the Army Special Operations Forces Plaza. Maj. Gen. Michael S. Repass memorialized the 18 Special Forces Soldiers who were killed in action and 90 Special Forces Association members who have died during the past year. “These men were the best, the first, the strongest, the fastest, the most adventurous and yes, the craziest. They were successful before they ever joined our ranks. You can only conclude that their small town upbringing, tight communities, and families that supported the soldier were responsible for much of their success once they became a Special Forces operator,” Repass said. The general also praised the soldiers’ widows because “they confront dark days every day and somehow they keep it together and move forward.” Repass commands about 10,000 soldiers in the Army’s five active-duty groups and two National Guard groups. After the speech, Repass placed a wreath near the Special Forces Memorial statue with Ronnie McCan, president of the Special Forces Association. “We do this to make sure we honor all those who have served, from the Vietnam War to the Cold War and our soldiers lost in the current wars,” McCan said. The ceremony concluded with the firing of a three volley salute and the playing of Taps.

McCrory works to remain visible in N.C. politics RALEIGH (AP) — Pat McCrory’s calendar seems penciled with listings for someone ready for a rematch with Gov. Beverly Perdue. McCrory, who stepped down as Charlotte mayor after 16 years last fall, has become a popular speaker statewide on the Republican Party’s chicken dinner circuit, headlining many GOP fundraisers. He’s been a frequent visitor on local and even national television political roundtables after narrowly losing to Perdue in November 2008. Now he has started a political action committee to raise money for legislative candidates and highlight issues he promoted in the 2008 race, including transportation, criminal justice and getting rid of what he called “a culture of corruption” in state government. “North Carolina state government is in a mess,” the 53-year-old McCrory said in a video announcing his New Leadership PAC and identifying Democrats, including Perdue, whom he believes are part of the problem. “It’s time for new leadership in our state and it must start now in 2010.” What about 2012? McCrory said in an interview he’s going to strongly consider a repeat gubernatorial bid. A longtime observer of his political career is more certain. “He’s going to run for governor,” said Ted Arrington, a political science professor at University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

Annual Memorial Day get-together pays tribute to military personnel K

enny Roberts looks forward to the Sunday before Memorial Day every year. He and neighbor Dave Casey decided 3 years ago to play wiffle ball in the big yard between their homes. Their families had played together for years, but neither could be satisfied with just their families and a few neighbors in attendance. That first year set the stage for a tradition that DAVID continues to grow, FREEZE and all of it is done for the right reasons. Many friends come from as far away as Lexington, and nearly 20 families are now represented. “We don’t care if we know you or not, we’re just glad to have you,” said Janet Lane. The official title is the Wiffle Ball World Series, and it is a throwback to years ago when

neighbors spent time together, and visited often. “People just don’t do this kind of thing anymore, ” said Tonya Rhodes of Lexington. She attends because her boyfriend Paul Moore used to work with Kenny. Kenny gets emotional when he talks about two uncles who were killed in World War II. His dad lost them as a young child and they were his heroes. Now Kenny wishes that he had just been able to know them, but wants others to understand their sacrifices and what they mean to those who gathered to play the game Sunday. The scoreboard is named after his uncles, Albert and Wendell. Kenny lives in Grace Ridge and currently works as the Civic Center Manager for the city of Statesville after many years at Salisbury Parks and Recreation. Traditionally, the Memorial Day weekend also means the beginning of summer and the end of the school year. Kenny remembers

growing up in a quiet Charlotte cul-de-sac that made the perfect wiffle ball field. He also knew that there would be plenty of time in the summer to play, hitting the balls while hoping to clear the power lines, which would signify a home run. In an effort to relive that same excitement, Wiffle Ball Commissioner Roberts began the festive day with a heated Home Run Derby. Patrick Stufflet won with a dominating left-handed power swing that easily cleared the 126 foot right field road several times. Last year’s winner, Chipper Thomas, presented the trophy while reminding Patrick that his total would have been higher had the pitching been better. The playing field itself is special with many innovations provided by Roberts and Casey. There was a large target hanging in a tree that would prompt a $20 payoff should it be hit. Just behind

It is still challenging, but I am better than a couple of the adults,” he said. “The most fun is when somebody gets hit by the ball. We plan on doing it again on the Fourth of July. But I still don’t understand why Sara gets an award just for showing up” Speaking of the wiffle balls, I was amazed that a wiffle ball can travel 200

Graham is placed in a witness protection program after being involved in an organized crime family. But the program is compromised, and he finds himself on the run. “My hope is it’s a very exciting, thrilling movie to a mainstream audience and a meaningful film for a Christian audience,” Hale said. “Every turning point is a crisis decision, not necessarily a crisis of faith so much as a man rediscovering his ethics.” She expects the film to receive a PG-13 rating. Hale and Troyer began collaborating two years ago when Troyer decided to try to make his book into a movie. Both said they were pleased to have found a wellknown cast to bring “Insecurity” to the screen. And all three of the actors who came to town Monday said they were glad to be a part of the project. “Everybody’s awesome,” said Furlong, whose credits include the part of young John Connor in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” and as Shane Casey on “CSI: New York.” “I just try to make it real for each scene. I’m in the company of great actors,” Furlong said of his role as Johnny. Although he’s a platinumselling rock ‘n’ roll singer, Meat Loaf was very down-toearth about his part in the film. “I love making films. Anytime I can be a part of a project, I love it,” he said. Meat Loaf portrays an undercover U.S. Marshal in the movie. “I like this guy because I get to play two different kinds of distinct personalities.” he said. “He’s got a bit of Columbo.” But it was Johnston who was the most taken with Rowan County. During her stay, she’s experienced Cheerwine and ranchburgers from What-aBurger, and loved both. “This was my first time in North Carolina. It’s beyond what I expected,” she said. Johnston’s early roles included a part in the Bette Midler movie “Beaches.” She played the young daughter of Hillary Essex, Barbara Hershey’s character. More recently, she’s starred in “Once More with Feeling” and an episode of “The Closer,” among others. “The people here are extremely nice,” Johnston said.

feet. Most of us know of a wiffle ball as something that doesn’t go far no matter how hard it is hit. Commissioner Roberts admits to juicing the balls just a little. In fact, he is a little too proud of it. In keeping with the real meaning of the weekend, the biggest highlight of the day is the much anticipated flyover of the military F-18’s. Roberts even put it in the event schedule, feeling fairly confident that the World Series of Wiffle Ball had enough clout to get the flyover. “Either that or there is some big event down at Charlotte. We’re glad they could make it” said Roberts. It did come about 30 minutes after the singing of the “Star Spangled Banner” and the start of the actual game. Speaking of the game, Roberts’ Blue team won for the third straight year. Final score was 30-27 after seven innings. Roberts threatened to call the game when his team got ahead, but he did let in play out. During a postgame celebration, Roberts admitted “It is a lot of fun playing wiffle ball with family and friends. But to me, it means much more. I just want everyone to remember the true meaning of Memorial Day and why we can have gatherings like this.”

“Insecurity” will continue shooting in the area during the next two weeks. One scene is set to be shot at the Gem Theater in Kannapolis. Asner, who was not in town Monday, will visit later to film a scene at a private home in Salisbury. The independent film does not yet have a distributor, Troyer said. It falls under the Screen Actors Guild’s modified lowbudget category, denoting a movie with a budget of less than $625,000. Troyer declined to say how much the actual budget was. But, having invested his own money in making the movie, he said he hopes it will touch people’s lives. “It’s been overwhelming at times,” Troyer said. “I’m focusing on the fact that this is possibly a oncein-a-lifetime experience.” But, he added, he hopes this is just the first of more movies he’ll make.

North Carolinians scramble to get exclusive state $2 bills Restricted release gives just 1 out of every 1,291 households an opportunity to get the entire State $2 Bill Collection™ By Joan Tedeschi

Universal Media Syndicate

N NEVER BEFORE SEEN: This is the new North Carolina state overlaid $2 bill that few have ever seen and everyone is scrambling to get. The World Reserve Monetary Exchange has restricted the release of its exclusive State $2 Bill Collection™, so getting one would make you as happy as hitting the lottery.

Most Americans have never even seen a government issued $2 bill, let alone the new never before seen state $2 bills being overlaid and released exclusively by the World Reserve Monetary Exchange. According to Thomas C. Harris, former Deputy Director of the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing and consultant for the privately held World Reserve, “Less than 1% of all U.S. Government notes currently produced are $2 bills.” And finding one of the exclusive 50 state $2 bills will be even more difficult. That’s because it has just been announced that the release of the entire new State $2 Bill Collection™ has been restricted. That means only 1 out of every 1,291 U.S. households will even have a chance to get them all. With this new State $2 Bill Collection™ now underway, North Carolinians are expected to snatch up all they can while they can still get their hands on them. N

Just 48 hours left for local residents to get the only existing North Carolina state $2 bills

Private hoard of never before seen state $2 bills being released for the next 48 hours, only in 4 packs of protective estate wallets each loaded with its own North Carolina state $2 bill for just $12 per wallet By R.K. Berry

Universal Media Syndicate

UMS – It’s like a run on the banks. The phones just keep ringing off the hook. That’s because North Carolina residents can only get the World Reserve’s never before seen North Carolina state overlaid $2 bills for the next 48 hours. All residents have to do is call 1-888-769-2827 or one of the five Overflow Hotlines to get their new state bills. These special Toll Free Hotlines have been set up because you can’t get these exclusive bills at local banks, credit unions or even the Federal Reserve. They’re being banded in packs of four and released directly to North Carolina residents exclusively by the World Reserve. These crisp U.S. $2 bills featuring the exclusively designed North Carolina state overlaid printing are so precious you would never even dream of carrying them around in an ordinary leather wallet. That’s why they are being released in individually loaded rich protective estate wallets. They are so impressive, everyone will swear they must have been taken right from the Governor’s desk. “Everything in our vault may soon be gone. So residents who want to get them now had better hurry and call,” said Jefferson Marshall, Executive Director of the World Reserve Monetary Exchange. Some collectors are always trying to snatch up all the $2 bills issued by the Government they can get their hands on. They know that $2 bills are almost impossible to find in your pocket change these days. Originally issued in 1928, the currently designed $2 bills have largely been locked away in the bowels of the U.S. Federal Reserve vaults, rarely distributed by banks and almost never seen in circulation. The $2 bills issued by the Treasury Department’s Bureau of Engraving and Printing, makers of all of the nation’s paper currency, make up less than 1% of the $670 billion in genuine U.S. currency that circulates worldwide, according to the U.S. Department of Treasury. “That’s why I’ve authorized a limited number of genuine Government issued $2 bills to be overlaid with the North Carolina state printing and released from our private vault reserve to the residents of the great state of North Carolina. Non-residents can’t have the vault packs of these North Carolina state $2 bills,” Marshall said. “These exclusive North Carolina state

$2 bills will be highly sought after and are extremely popular to hand out as gifts for friends and family. They are the perfect gift for any occasion,” he said. “That’s why this announcement is being so widely advertised, to make sure every North Carolina resident has a chance to get their own state $2 bill,” said Marshall. They are sure to impress because most people have never even seen one of these newly enhanced state $2 bills featuring a plane and the Charlotte cityscape with President Thomas Jefferson on the front. “Since these are the only existing North Carolina state $2 bills, anyone who wants more than 10 sealed vault packs of 4 bills in protective estate wallets must submit requests in writing so there will be no hoarding by dealers,” said Marshall. “You better believe we will be strictly enforcing the limits so that we can guarantee there will be at least 10 vault packs for North Carolinians who call in the next 48 hours,” Marshall said. N

N LIMITED RELEASE BEGINS: Above is the never before seen entire 50 State $2 Bill Collection™ shown off by the World Reserve. You can’t get these exclusive state $2 bills from local banks, credit unions or even the Federal Reserve. Dealers and collectors who are lucky enough to find them are sure to be charging a hefty premium to let them go. But getting the entire 50 State $2 Bill Collection™ may be hard, since the release is being restricted. That’s why the World Reserve Monetary Exchange has also decided to release all 50 states together in one complete collection to residents who beat the deadline by calling 1-888-769-2827 in the next 48 hours.

HOW NORTH CAROLINA RESIDENTS CAN GET THEIR STATE $2 BILLS NORTH CAROLINA RESIDENTS ONLY The special Toll Free Hotlines are open to North Carolina residents only. Residents have just 48 hours to get their North Carolina state $2 bills beginning at 8:00am today. If you miss the deadline you’ll be turned away and forced to wait for future announcements in this publication or others, if any. The World Reserve Monetary Exchange is only releasing the never before seen North Carolina state overlaid $2 bills banded together in packs of 4, each in its own protective estate wallet, for just $12 per wallet and shipping to residents of North Carolina only. There is a strict limit of 10 North Carolina state $2 bill vault packs per household. To claim yours call the special Toll Free Hotline numbers below.

Hurricane lull has some in southeast N.C. worried WILMINGTON (AP) — Fourteen years after Hurricane Fran ripped through southeastern North Carolina, emergency officials say buildings and homes in the region are better prepared for the next big storm. But they aren’t as sure about the residents. Hurricane season began Monday, and after dealing with four hurricanes in three years in the late 1990s, the area around Wilmington hasn’t been struck directly since 1999. The past decade has seen another growth spurt in coastal communities like Carolina Beach and Topsail Island, the StarNews of Wilmington reports.

But the new growth has come with stricter building codes. Rules requiring deeper pilings for elevated coastal buildings appeared to be a success when Hurricane Fran came ashore with 115 mph winds in 1996. Newer homes built within a quarter-mile of the ocean also have to have storm shutters for windows and doors, said Spencer Rogers, a coastal engineering expert with N.C. Sea Grant. However, the beach at Topsail Island has changed quite a bit since Fran. No largescale beach nourishment work has been done recently, leaving many structures along the ocean on the edge of the escarpment, and on the north

end of the island, there are no dunes or escarpment at all. The passage of time also has dulled memories of Fran and other storms. Surveys conducted in the region several years ago showed residents overestimated the chances of being struck by a hurricane and underestimated the damage a storm can do, said Chris Dumas, an environmental economist with the University of North Carolina Wilmington. One reason could be while the rains from a hurricane often drench a wide area, only a narrow patch of land north and east of the hurricane’s center go through the worst winds and storm surge. “They

think they’d experienced something that they actually hadn’t experienced,” Dumas said. Rickey Smith has been dealing with storms on Topsail Island for 25 years, first as police chief and now as the interim town manager. He tells anyone he can to take any hurricane seriously, but worries the longer things stay quiet, the more he gets ignored. “After we had one bad storm, we had no problems with evacuations for the next three or four storms,” Smith said. “But we know that won’t be the case next time because we haven’t had one for a long time, and people just don’t know what they can do.”

MILL SPRING (AP) — Rescuers say a father and son drowned in a North Carolina lake after they jumped in and saved a young child from drowning. Multiple media outlets report the men were on a boat Sunday afternoon on Lake Adger when the girl fell in the water. Authorities say the father and his adult son jumped in and rescued the girl, but the pair couldn’t make it out of the water for reasons they haven’t figured out. The names of the two men have not been released.

Woman killed on side of road as her son watches WINSTON-SALEM (AP) — Police say a man fatally attacked a woman on the side of a North Carolina road while their 6-year-old son watched. Davidson County Sheriff David Grice told multiple media outlets that 54-year-old Beresford Campbell was arrested shortly after the attack Sunday morning. Grice says 48-year-old Beverly Wiley was found lying just off the road, bleeding from several wounds. The sheriff says an off-duty police officer managed to take Campbell into custody and give first aid to Wiley. Grice says the couple had a son who was in the car when his mother was attacked, but he was not injured. It wasn’t immediately clear if Campbell had an attorney.

The reasons for the change in its fate include the museum’s bookkeeping and funding cuts. The museum’s board of trustees voted earlier this month to shut down rather than accumulate more debt. Museum executive director Tom Grubb says the closing is a sign that the arts aren’t healthy in Fayetteville. Summer art classes that were nearly full also have been canceled, along with children’s programs.

3 killed when car runs off road in mountains MORGANTON (AP) — Three people have died after a driver lost control of his car, running off a mountainous North Carolina road and slamming into a tree. State troopers told The Charlotte Observer that the wreck happened about 7 p.m. Sunday on Brown Mountain Beach Road about 12 miles northwest of Morganton.

Authorities say 23-year-old James Nutt of Morganton lost control of the Nissan Altima on the winding road. The vehicle went down an embankment, then went airborne for more than 40 feet before hitting the ground and striking the tree.

OBAMA IN CHARGE

Spill still BP’s Hoof steps in the night responsibility Anonymous earmarks boost Pentagon budget S

omebody had to start taking the fall for the runaway Gulf oil spill, and Thursday it came to Elizabeth Birnbaum, ousted as head of the U.S. Minerals Management Service. The agency’s chummy relations with the oil industry and lax approach to regulation perhaps did not actually cause the spill, but certainly played a role in allowing it to happen. The next step is to proceed with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar’s planned dismantling of the MMS. His proposal calls for separating its functions of setting standards, conducting inspections and enforcement, and collecting revenues into Obama pointed stand-alone units to end the inherent toward the conflict of interest solution when he in the old system. President said his mistake Barack Obama is was believing that taking pains with ‘the oil companies his press conference and trip to had their act the Gulf to show together when it that he is not, as been charged, came to worst-case has disengaged from the crisis, officialscenarios.’ ly now the U.S.’s worst oil spill ever. He wants it understood that he is in charge: “Make no mistake, BP is operating at our direction.” Obama has been under pressure for the government to “take over” the process of capping the well, whatever that means. He could call in the military, but cleaning up after the oil companies is not in the military’s job description; besides, it has its hands full elsewhere. A standby federal reaction force of experts, ships, submersibles and heavy equipment would be nice in a perfect world, but it would be expensive and underused because, mercifully, deepsea spills of this magnitude are rare. Obama himself pointed toward the solution when he said his mistake was believing that “the oil companies had their act together when it came to worst-case scenarios.” From now on, the government must insist that the companies adhere to the best standards and practices for building and operating the wells, something that was not always followed in BP’s case. And when the administration’s six-month moratorium on offshore leases expires, the government must demand as a condition of granting the leases that the oil companies have workable plans for an effective response to a catastrophe and the expertise and equipment for carrying them out. The role of the government is not to plug oil wells, but to ensure that the industry has the capacity to do so.

itizens Against Government Waste recently issued its FY10 summary of earmark abuses, called the Pig Book. Remarkably, $6 billion of the $6.5 billion in anonymous earmarks were made within the defense appropriation. And with the war supplemental pending, more surely is on the way. Congressional rules require members to disclose all earmarks online. Rules, though, were made to be broken. Garden-variety violators — those that remain anonymous because of the weirdness or embarrassment of their spending — are less remarkable because they have no greater meaning. The member requesting $1.8M for food allergy research in the defense bill provides a great example. Yet two other types connect far more significantly to planning and strategy.

Wilbur goes to the ball

House Republicans profiled their fiscal responsibility by pledging to offer no earmarks for the entire FY2011 budget cycle. Far less PR was done for the caveat memo circulated by the House Armed Services Committee Minority staff. In it, HASC Republicans determined that “committee level national security policy decisions” did not constitute earmarks and, as a consequence, can continue. Two particular committee level national security policy decisions were cited as examples: procurement of additional C-17 cargo jets and development of an alternative second engine for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. The Pentagon has very prominently rejected these purchases, and excluded them from its strategy and recent budgets — hence the

‘need’ for earmarks. Taken together, earmarks for just these two purchases ($2.97 billion) totaled 49% of the anonymous requests in the defense appropriation, and 29% of all defense requests. This lays to rest any ambiguity about the meaning of House Republican’s earmark ban as it pertains to defense. “Committee level national security decisions” may accessorize that pig for a masquerade ball, but behind that mask is still an undisciplined mass of pork. When pigs drive (and sail) House Republicans certainly aren’t the only ones leaving unclaimed BBQ stains on the defense bill, though. Indeed, the Pentagon’s clumsy fingerprints are strikingly visible. Foremost among them is an $825 million plus-up for the coveted Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle (MRAP). Replacing DOD’s jury-rigged ‘up-armored’ Humvees, the MRAP is seeing extensive service in Iraq and Afghanistan and, consequently, is being wedged anywhere in the budget it will fit. MRAP purchases belong in the overseas contingency operations title but have featured significantly in emergency supplemental spending, and apparently now in earmarks as well. Earmarked spending for the DDG-51 program of Arleigh Burke class destroyers also reflects needs that DOD should have foreseen but didn’t. Last December the Navy decided to cancel the CG(X) Next Generation Cruiser and instead procure more advanced DDG-51s. Until then, the defense appropriators hewed to the administration request of $329 million for advance procurement funding for two DDG-51s. Yet a $579 million figure, $250 million over the request, emerged

from the appropriation conference following the Navy’s decision. Thus, while House Republicans are compromising strategy simply to bring the pork home, the Pentagon finds itself stuck with budgeting through earmarks having failed to plan ahead. FY10 War supplemental is serving up seconds CAGW’s Pig Book covers the already-enacted FY10 budget, but undisciplined earmark spending certainly is not about to end. In fact, the next round is coming right up as defense appropriators expect to pass the war supplemental bill within the month. Anonymity is less likely to be a problem this time around, though. Last year, for instance, over 99% of the $493 million in earmarks weighing the bill down was proudly claimed by Senate appropriator Thad Cochrane (R-MS). Supplemental spending carries a strong risk of fiscal indiscipline, often representing — like the MRAPs and DDG51s — issues that could and should have been foreseen. Earmarking is even simpler — it is the pinnacle of indiscipline, as the shame implied by common preferences for anonymity indicate. By earmarking the war supplemental, that indiscipline just is compounded. Regrettably, as the bill moves forward this month, hardly anything else can be expected. • • • Matt Leatherman of Arlington, Va., formerly of Salisbury, and Mariah Quinn are contributors to Budget Insight, where this piece first appeared.

Haitian orphans tangled in red tape BY LISA HOFFMAN

W

ASHINGTON — About 1,000 Haitian orphans now living with U.S. families are so tangled in red tape that it could take years before they get legal immigration status here. That is no small matter as the U.S. and many states are restricting the protections and benefits available to those who are not legally entitled to be here. It makes it difficult, if not impossible, for their adoptive American parents to cover them with health insurance or enroll them in school, and, if something happens to their parents, it means they could be sent back to Haiti. The legal limbo is a result of the way the children were whisked out of Haiti after the Jan. 12 earthquake. They left before they had all the paperwork needed to be legally adopted, and were allowed to enter the U.S. on a temporary humanitarian basis. Since then, the notoriously labyrinthian path to formal adoption has become virtually blocked.

Now that he’s admitted taking drugs, I just have two questions. Where can I get some of that stuff Floyd was taking, and why aren’t they giving it to everyone? What are we, stupid? They keep saying it’s bad for you, that it will stunt your growth, make you impotent. Yet every night we can watch athletes who have admitted taking PEDs and Human Growth Hormones. They’re playing pro ball long after their peers have dropped out, they’re dating starlets, they’re making babies and tons of money. Gee, I hate to see them wreck their lives like that. What were they thinking? Whoever makes PEDs should be advertising them every night on the news. “Tired, sluggish, don’t have the energy to fill the dishwasher? Ask your doctor about Makesmefeelgood. Warning, may cause high energy levels, increased attention from the opposite sex, a longer life span and a raise in pay. Should you experience any of these symptoms, call your doctor immediately and ask for more.” Isn’t this the exact same thing the “legal” drugs claim to do? Calling something a performance-enhancing drug makes it sound unsportsmanlike. But isn’t food a performance enhancer? It would be hard to play football if you weren’t allowed to eat any protein for a few weeks before the game. Food obviously boosts an athlete’s performance, yet the International Olympic Committee refuses to ban it. Or should the athlete with the healthier diet be banned while the one who eats bacon-flavored ice cream gets to play? What about water? Doesn’t that up your game? At marathons, runners are encouraged to drink performance-enhancing water. Those cheats. Don’t all the years Floyd Landis trained and competed count for something? You could shoot me full of crack cocaine and amphetamines and zap me with a cattle prod and I still couldn’t have done what he did in the Tour de France. I couldn’t make it up that hill in a car. Maybe he wouldn’t have won the race without the drugs, but it’s not like he coasted to the win. While he was out there training day after day, riding thousands of miles a year, others sat around the house eating snack chips and calling sports radio talk shows to complain about athletes on dope. These are the same fans who go to baseball and football games and eat platefuls of nachos washed down with staggering amounts of beer while sitting around for four hours with no more exercise than going to the bathroom. Wow, what a bunch of health nuts they are. They would never use dope. Except that stuff they take for their cholesterol, the stuff they take for their diabetes, the stuff they take for their lower-back pain, the stuff they take for their gout and the stuff they take for their ED. Isn’t Viagra a performance-enhancing drug? Isn’t that cheating? • • • Jim Mullen is the author of “It Takes a Village Idiot: Complicating the Simple Life.” — NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION

Bloody Israeli raid on Gaza-bound ships, killing 9, sparks harsh criticism, diplomatic crisis

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey withdrew its ambassador to Israel and called for an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council as condemnations erupted across Europe and the Arab world Monday over Israel’s deadly commando raid on ships taking humanitarian aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip. Government after government demanded an explanation from Israel, which said its soldiers were trying to defend themselves against armed activists. The White House said it was trying to learn more about “this tragedy.” Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said “it should be known that we are not going to remain silent in the face of this inhumane state terrorism.” Most of the nine dead were apparently from Turkey, once a close ally of Israel. Erdogan cut short a visit to Latin America on Monday to return home because of the clash. “This assault proved once again, clearly, that the current government of Israel does not want peace in the region,” he told reporters in Chile .

Gunmen attack hospital in Pakistan, kill 6 people LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — At least two gunmen disguised in police uniforms attacked a hospital in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore late Monday, killing six people in a failed attempt to free a captured militant being treated there, officials said. The gunmen managed to escape but left without securing the release of the militant, who was part of a group of gunmen who attacked a minority sect in Lahore on Friday and killed 93 people, said Rana Sanaullah, the law minister of Punjab province, where Lahore is the capital. The gunmen stormed Jinnah Hospital in a hail of gunfire shortly before midnight Monday and briefly took several patients hostage, Sanaullah said. One of the gunmen climbed on the roof to shoot at police who surrounded the building, he said. Four of the six people

Another seven people were wounded, he said. Lahore has experienced a string of deadly attacks in the past year by militants who have declared war on both the government and minority groups in the country.

Pakistan lifts Facebook ban LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistan lifted a ban on Facebook on Monday after officials from the social networking site apologized for a page deemed offensive to Muslims and removed its contents, a top information technology official said. The move came almost two weeks after Pakistan imposed the ban amid anger over a page that encouraged users to post images of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. Many Muslims regard depictions of the prophet, even favorable ones, as blasphe-

mous. “In response to our protest, Facebook has tendered their apology and informed us that all the sacrilegious material has been removed from the URL,” said Najibullah Malik, secretary of Pakistan’s information technology ministry, referring to the technical term for a Web page. Facebook assured the Pakistani government that “nothing of this sort will happen in the future,” Malik said. Officials from the website could not immediately be reached for comment. They said earlier the contents of the “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day!” page did not violate Facebook’s terms.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea broadened efforts Monday to convince the world and its own public that North Korea sank one of its warships, sharing evidence with Russian torpedo experts and preparing a special briefing for influential bloggers and Twitter personalities. The persuasion campaign coincided with military exercises in which thousands of South Korean troops practiced fending off an attack from the North near the rivals’ tense border. The drill, which the army said was routine and unrelated to the ship attack, involved building and defending pontoon bridges that scores of tanks used to cross a river as helicopters buzzed overhead. The South is lobbying for support for U.N. action against the North, blamed for torpedoing the Cheonan warship and killing 46 sailors in March. Winning Moscow’s backing would be vital because Russia is a veto-holding permanent Security Council member and a traditional ally of North Korea, which denies attacking the ship. The Russian team — including torpedo and submarine experts — arrived Monday and received a briefing on the Cheonan probe, con-

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli commandos rappelled down to an aid flotilla sailing to thwart a Gaza blockade Monday, clashing with pro-Palestinian activists on the lead ship in a botched raid that left at least nine passengers dead. Bloodied passengers sprawled on the deck and troops dived into the sea to save themselves during several hours of hand-to-hand fighting that injured dozens of activists and six soldiers. Hundreds of activists were towed from the international waters to Israeli detention centers and hospitals. International condemnation was swift and harsh as Israel scrambled to explain how what was meant to be a simple takeover of a civilian vessel went so badly awry. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu abruptly canceled a planned meeting with President Barack Obama in Washington to rush home. The global reaction appeared likely to increase pressure to end the embargo that has plunged Gaza’s 1.5 million residents deeper into poverty. Most of the information about what happened on the single ship where violence broke out came from Israel, which cut off all communication to and from the activists and provided testimony and video evidence that its soldiers came under attack by activists armed with metal rods, knives, slingshots and two pistols snatched from the troops.

PLAIN CITY, Ohio (AP) — About 150 law enforcement officers are guarding highways around an Ohio dairy farm where animal welfare activists want to stage a protest after a video showed cows being kicked and poked with pitchforks. A Chicago-based group called Mercy For Animals released the undercover video last week. Conklin Dairy Farms Inc. fired a worker who’s charged with 12 counts of animal cruelty. The Union County sheriff’s office says Internet chatter indicated a protest

was scheduled Sunday. But authorities say the Plain City farm is private property and is surrounded by highways, leaving no place for people to legally park or protest. Sgt. Chris Skinner says a few people in cars approached officers about staging a rally. He says they must find public property. Conklin Dairy Farms says it won’t condone animal abuse and is cooperating with authorities.

Judge: Conn. town can’t hold graduations in church BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A federal judge has ruled two Connecticut public high schools can’t hold their graduations inside a church because that would be an unconstitutional endorsement of religion. U.S. District Court Judge

Janet Hall made the ruling Monday in the case of Enfield High School and Enrico Fermi High School, both in Enfield. The Enfield school board says it voted to hold services June 23 and 24 at The First Cathedral in Bloomfield because it had enough space at the right price. But two students and three of their parents sued. The judge says Enfield had unconstitutionally entangled itself with religion by agreeing to cover much of the church’s religious imagery. She also says the town coerced the plaintiffs to support religion by forcing them to enter the church for graduation.

Park officials say 39-yearold Canadian Andrew Herzenberg and 42-year-old Israeli Avner Magen were descending a steep gully of Ruth Gorge on Saturday when they were swept away by the avalanche. Both men were residents of Toronto, Ontario. Officials say other climbers witnessed the avalanche and skied closer to the site. In the debris, the climbers saw what appeared to be two people and gear and called rangers with a satellite phone. The bodies of the two men were recovered Sunday morning.

His son says he never forgot about his dog tags. Retired Italian police inspector Daniele Bianchini found the tags, a ring and a medallion while practicing his new hobby on the old battlefield. Bianchini asked to keep one of the tags and sent the rest of the items to Glomb’s family in Texas.

Fishin’ with Capt Gus

Blue herons active with young on Lake Norman

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Folks in Asheville watch and take pictures as a young black bear runs loose downtown last week. Police said the bear, which did not appear aggressive, wandered several city blocks before disappearing behind a park.

Bear takes 45-minute stroll in Asheville ASHEVILLE (AP) — A black bear took a 45-minute stroll through a western North Carolina city during a busy lunch hour. The Asheville Citizen-Times reported that a young bear sauntered through downtown Asheville on Wednesday. Po-

lice say the bear did not appear aggressive. Dozens of gawkers watched and took pictures as it wandered several city blocks before disappearing behind a park. Wildlife biologist Mike Carraway from N.C. Wildlife Resources Commis-

sion says the relatively small animal likely was a yearling recently banished from its home territory by its mother, which is normal this time of year. He says the bear should have plenty to eat in the wild now so it probably wasn’t forced to look for food elsewhere.

Fly tying’s easy with patience, following directions BY KEVIN WHEATLEY The Frankfort, Ky., State Journal

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Todd Weeks, a 50-year-old fly fisherman, sits at small mobile worktable, clamps a fishing hook into a vice and winds its shank with dark-green thread. For the tail, he ties black marabou — the soft, fluffy part of feathers found on turkeys — to the shank. He then adds olive-colored yarn for the body and a rooster feather for hackle. Weeks finishes the fly and briefly inspects it. “Simple,” he says, holding the fly in his palm. It’s a woolly bugger, sort of a utility fly, which he says will “fish all day” at the Salato Wildlife Education Center’s two lakes. Tying flies may prove daunting for newcomers to fly fishing. But Weeks says anyone can do it. All it takes is a little patience and the ability to follow directions. “You have to be able to read a book, and that’s it,” Weeks said. “I mean, I can give you this vice and some basic tools and hand you this book, and within a half hour’s time, you can tie a fly in no time.” The book is “The Benchside Introduction to Fly Tying” by Leeson Schollmeyer. Weeks recommends it for novices and veterans alike.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Todd Weeks ties a fly at Salato Wildlife Education Center. ‘When you start catching fish on flys that you’ve made, it’s just a lot of fun,’ he said. After more than 40 years of tying, Weeks still keeps a copy nearby. He’s a journeyman tool and dye maker of 20 years and began tying flies when he was 8 growing up in Buffalo, N.Y. “At the time, they came with this kit, and you could order them through a actually, we had an order shop in the town I grew up in, so I walked up to the order shop and got this kit,” Weeks recalled recently in an interview at the Salato Center. “I think at the time it was $10 or $12, and it gave you enough to do one of each of the flies that it had in that kit. “It came with an inexpensive vice and the basic tools

you need to do your fly-tying. So I started doing it that way.” His first fly was a woolly bugger — which resembles a leech or worm in water. The marabou tail provides fluttering action fish find irresistible. A small creek ran behind Todd’s home in Buffalo where he caught his first fish — a bass — using one of his handmade flies. “Back in the ’60s you could just walk out your back door and spend all day down there,” Weeks says. “No one worried about you unless you didn’t come to eat.” Over the years and through travels, Weeks has

accumulated a small stockpile of fly tying materials. He has a tackle box full of various styles and sizes of hooks, spools of colored thread and a blue plastic bin filled with bags of animal fur and feathers from deer, turkey, peacocks and roosters. “There are a hundred different types.” He has more exotic tying material at home, including porcupine fur. There are even a few synthetic materials — which some fly tiers shun. “Some people are traditionalists and purists, and they’re only going to tie with fur, feather, that kind of thing. I don’t really follow that route. I kind of enjoy doing different things, like if I’m going up to Erie Pennsylvania, let’s say, and I’m going after the steelhead trout. I’ve got yarn that’s just bright orange, or chartreuse even, in color that I don’t mind using. “You’re not going to find anything chartreuse in the wild that’s going to help you tie that fly and catch that fish.” Weeks teaches kids to tie flies in his spare time. He can keep their attention and says they’re some of his best students. His 16-year-old son, Wyatt, is starting to fish more now. “I enjoy seeing him enjoy it as I used to enjoy it, and knowing he’s going to follow the same road eventually.”

The blue heron rookery on Lake Norman is a beehive of activity since chicks have hatched and are maturing. The active parents take turns hunting for baby-food 24 hours a day. When they aren’t foraging, they gather nesting materials (mostly sticks and branches) used to enlarge or repair their gigantic nests. At times, there are so many blue heron circling the island, the air space resembles a busy airport. Blue Heron Island is the smaller of two islands between Markers D4 and D6 in Reed Creek. While the island is off limits during nesting season (do not beach your boat or walk on the island), the birds can easily be viewed from a boat with binoculars. The nesting season begins in the spring and continues until summer when the chicks are old enough to fend for themselves. What makes Blue Heron Island so interesting is that the birds colonize in the tall pines, each with multiple nests. A closer look finds each nest with several chicks, all hungry and chirping loudly between feedings. The more you watch, the more you will be fascinated at how the young recognize the parents as they glide back to the nest with a mouthful of food. It is quite a sight to watch birds that weigh up to seven pounds make three-point landings between the branches of a lofty pine trees.

Blue heron are experts at fishing, but they also eat snakes and small ground animals. They wade patiently and then stand in place until their quarry is close enough to snare with a quick thrust of their blade-like beak. While an adult stands upwards of 41⁄2 feet, its neck is very skinny — so thin in fact, that if a fish gets sideways it can choke to death. The neck of a juvenile bird is smaller yet, which makes choking a major reason for the species’ high mortality rate. The shallows surrounding Blue Heron Island are covered with rocks and stumps. Do not venture too close. Binoculars are recommended. Everyone in the party should bring a pair. Listen for the chirping chicks that sounds the return of a parent with food.

Hot spots

Fishing has been good for bass, perch and cats. Stripers are suspended in water to 50 feet on river and creek points. Live baits are best, but schools of fish can be coaxed into biting vertically fished jigging spoons. Bream and small channel cats are in shallow coves and can be caught on red wigglers. The lake level is about 1.5 feet below full pond and the water surface temperature is in the 70s and 80s. 

Temptations singer Ali-Ollie Woodson dies at 58 Woodson’s voice, though similar to Edwards’ with its fiery tone, was distinct in itself, and helped the group notch the R&B hits “Treat Her Like A Lady,” “Sail Away,” and “Lady Soul,” from 1984 to 1986. “He had this swagger about himself. He was cool. He had a coolness about himself that was really very inviting,” said Wilson. He said he first met Woodson in 1980 before Woodson joined the group and that he last spoke with his friend about two weeks ago. Despite his fame, Woodson was “always a gentleman and always polite and kind to everybody. If we ever asked him to do anything, he never said, ‘well, it’s going to cost you.’ He’d always say, ‘yeah, let’s go,”’ said Wilson, who founded the Detroit-based Motown association in the mid1990s. “He was just a star performer. Wonderful person. Wonderful, wonderful person. He was very kind.” Messages were left Monday for a producer and a manager who worked with Woodson. A recorded message at a phone number for his wife said the voice mailbox was full.

DETROIT (AP) — Ali-Ollie Woodson, who led the legendary Motown quintet The Temptations in the 1980s and ’90s and helped restore them to their hit-making glory with songs including “Treat Her Like A Lady,” has died, a friend said. He was 58. Woodson died Sunday in southern California after battling cancer, Motown Alumni Association President Billy Wilson said. Wilson said Woodson’s wife, Juanita, told him about the death Sunday. Woodson was not an original member of the group, which had several lineup changes since it started in the 1960s. But he played an integral part in keeping the Temptations from becoming just nostalgia act. By the early 1980s, the Temptations were no longer posting hit after hit like they did in the 1960s and ’70s with classics such as “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” “My Girl,” and “I Wish It Would Rain.” The group had lost original members, and Woodson was charged with replacing Dennis Edwards, whose passionate voice defined the group during the 1970s.

and advance preparations. I want to send her a thankyou note to acknowledge her amazing help. Here’s the problem: At the party, after a few drinks, she had an emotional episode and yelled offensive things in a loud voice before stomping out of the party, hopping mad. It was an ugly scene that left the other guests upset. I am angry about this, but will accept her apology if she offers one. In the meantime, I do not feel sincere sending her a thank-you note for her help because she also had such a negative impact on the party. — Richard

If we don’t face real consequences, our choices don’t matter all that much. All the same, as you note, I am a great believer in second chances and have learned from readers’ submissions (here and at my website, mysecondchancestories.com) that the crooked path — through challenges — is the one offering the most interesting rewards. That has certainly been the case in my own life. My favorite inspirational book for this graduation season is “Heroes for My Son,” by Brad Meltzer (2010, HarperStudio). Meltzer was inspired to put together a list of heroes when his son was born, and it includes many people your great-nephew would have learned about in school, such as Gandhi, Albert Einstein and Neil Armstrong, but also John Lennon and Eleanor Roosevelt — and Meltzer’s mother. It’s important that your great-nephew learn that each of us has the stuff of heroes within us — but sometimes we need a little inspiration to see it. Meltzer’s comment, “History doesn’t just pick (specific) people, history picks everyone,” is an invitation to find the hero within. I love the fact that you recognize this need and see the promise in this young man. I see it in every young person crossing a stage in cap and gown.

R118763

Dear Amy: My greatnephew is almost graduating from high school this month. Apparently, he has not been doing well academically. The school will allow him to walk across the stage if he agrees to finish his work during the summer. This young man needs to be inspired to ASK realize that he AMY could make choices that benefit him. He has not always had the strongest or most consistent parenting, and he seems to lack self-confidence, motivation and self-discipline. In many ways, he is in the “normal” hormonal and maturation stages of many 18year-old young men. In other ways, I believe he needs to be held accountable to build maturity, self-esteem and discover the interests he is willing to work toward. Do you have any recommendations of inspiring stories or books for this age group? I love your collection of second-chance stories, but I need something I can wrap and send to him that caters to his level. — Caring Great Aunt Dear Great Aunt: I’m not quite sure how someone can cross the stage and “almost graduate,” predicated on conditions that haven’t yet been met. This is an example of a deeper problem — not just concerning young people, but having to do with all of us.

Perimenopause precedes menopause Dear Dr. Gott: I am a 43year-old female with irregular periods. When I finally went to my doctor, he told me that I have perimenopause. Can you tell me what this is? Dear Reader: Simply put, perimenopause is an introduction to menopause. It commonly occurs when a female is in her 40s, but can happen to some women in their mid30s. It generally lasts between two to eight years and is a natuDR. PETER ral part of the a g i n g GOTT process. Estrogen levels rise and fall in an erratic pattern, and women may experience problems sleeping, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood changes and more. Repeated menstrual irregularity, however, is one of the most widely recognized initial phases of the condition. As long as the irregularity isn’t accompanied by extremely heavy bleeding, breakthrough bleeding between cycles, bleeding that lasts longer than eight days and cycles that occur fewer than 21 days apart, you can usually consider things as progressing normally. However, complications outside these guidelines should be brought to your primarycare physician’s or gynecologist’s attention. There are several circumstances that have a bearing on when perimenopause or

menopause might begin. Smoking, for example, is known to trigger menopause up to two years earlier than in those without a history. Other signs of an earlierthan-normal occurrence are chemotherapy for childhood cancer, never having delivered a baby, hysterectomy and pelvic radiation therapy. Therapy might include the use of oral contraceptives for the purpose of regulating cycles, and reducing vaginal dryness and hot flashes. A progestin-containing IUD (intrauterine device) might control heavy bleeding, while progestin therapy might regulate cycles. If you are satisfied with the information you already received, I recommend you continue as you are, eat well, exercise, avoid alcohol and caffeine, which can trigger hot flashes, and enjoy each day to the fullest. If you are dissatisfied, either jot down a list of questions and return to your physician for an explanation, or request a second opinion. In the interim, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “Menopause.” Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order to Newsletter, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092-0167. Be sure to mention the title or print an order form off my website at www.AskDrGottMD.com. Dear Dr. Gott: I am considering taking colloidal silver and want your opinion. Is it safe, or is it toxic?

Dear Reader: Colloidal silver is touted as a cure-all that boosts the immune system and treats a plethora of issues from viruses, cancer, HIV/AIDS, shingles and even prostatitis. There is no scientific evidence to substantiate such claims. It is not an essential mineral. Colloidal silver is made up of tiny silver particles suspended in a liquid. It is available in oral, spray and topical forms. It is known to build up in the tissues of the body over time and most commonly results in a bluegray discoloration of the skin, nails, gums, eyes and internal organs. While this isn’t a serious health problem, it is a serious cosmetic problem because the discoloration doesn’t go away even if the supplement is discontinued. My opinion is probably not one you want to hear, but I can’t recommend this product. If you eat a nutritious diet, exercise and get adequate sleep, forgo something so questionable until firm scientific studies prove it is beneficial. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including “Live Longer, Live Better,” “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Diet” and “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook,” which are available at most bookstores or online.

Don’t be fooled by the given layout BY PHILLIP ALDER

United Feature Syndicate

Laurence J. Peter, an educator and “hierarchiologist” best known for the formulation of the Peter Principle (which is too long for inclusion here), said, “It is wise to remember that you are one of those who can be fooled some of the time.” Defending against four spades, you, West, lead the heart ace: five, two, three. What would you do next? North, with six-card support, was right to shut his eyes and bid four spades. Who knows who can make what? And this way he was chasing a game bonus. You were probably tempted to compete further, but the unfavorable

vulnerability dissuaded you. (Note that five clubs goes down one, which is a cheap sacrifice if four spades makes, but is expensive if you defeat four spades.) You know partner’s heart two is a singleton. (With the doubleton eight-two, he would have played the eight, starting an echo.) So it is tempting to cash the heart king. With this layout, that works fine because East should discard the club king, the top of

his sequence. Then you would cash the club ace and play another club for down one. However, that is not the right defense! Suppose partner has Q-J-x-x-x of clubs (and no diamond ace). The winning defense would be to lead a low heart at trick two. Make your partner ruff the trick. He would then shift to the club queen. This way your side would take one heart, a heart ruff and two clubs. Since this cannot cost, it is the correct play. Yes, in this position, partner could ruff your heart king and lead the club queen, but he might not.

Ronnie Gallagher, Sports Editor, 704-797-4287 rgallagher@salisburypost.com

East Rowan’s softball team is making its first Final Four appearance since 1996, when head coach Mike Waddell was an assistant with the program. Crest, East’s opponent in the 3A Western final on Friday, is currently making the deepest postseason run in school history. The Mustangs (24-1) are led by juniors Chelsea White, a pitcher who has committed to Elon, and Ericka Nesbitt, a shortstop who has committed to Campbell. Bailey Smith is a standout pitcher and slugger for Crest (23-1). Smith, who went deep twice in back-to-back games earlier this year, has eight homers. She’s a key reason WHITE why the Chargers have outscored their opponents 22-0 in four playoff games. Crest pulled out a 1-0 victory in 13 innings against Fred T. Foard in the second round and won 10-0 in six innings against Enka to qualify for the Final Four.

Chance excites Tedder

Wilson Hunt is located only 19 miles from Five County Stadium in Zebulon, but the Warriors’ opponent in the 3A baseball finals is familiar with the ballpark. East Rowan (29-2) and Hunt (26-5) will begin play in the best-of-three state championship series Friday at the home of the Double-A Carolina Mudcats. The Mustangs visited Five County two years ago and fell to Rocky Mount in a championship series that went the distance. Senior third baseman Noah Holmes is the only returning starter from that 29-win team. Holmes and shortstop Preston Troutman have both signed with Appalachian State.

PREP TRACK

Chad Tedder was offered the East Rowan football head coaching job Friday. He accepted the challenge Saturday after a short prayer, a long talk with his family and a good night’s sleep. “I feel good, I feel ready and I TEDDER feel excited that this o p portunity kind of fell into my lap,” Tedder said. Tedder, 39, has been West Davidson’s defensive coordinator since 2006. He applied unsuccessfully for the head coaching job at his alma mater, West Montgomery, a year ago but went into that interview process with mixed emotions. “If I’d gotten the job at West Montgomery, we would’ve had to move, I would’ve had to uproot my family, and that was a big concern,” Tedder said. “But I live just 20 minutes from East.” The Tedder family resides in the Churchland community, southwest of Lexington on N.C. 150. “We usually eat in Salisbury and go to the movies in Salisbury because no one recognizes us,” Tedder said with a chuckle. “When we go to the Wal-Mart in Lexington, half the people know me.” Tedders’ wife, Susan, is a guidance counselor at West Davidson who once worked at East Rowan. The children are Andrew, 8, and Anastasia, 6. They answer to Drew and Ana. Other than the addition of East Rowan T-shirts to their wardrobes, that trio of Tedders won’t have to make major lifestyle changes to accommodate Chad’s new job. If Tedder had to describe himself in three words, he’d go with “easy-going, peoplepleaser and patient.” Patience can be a necessary virtue at East. Tedder will be the 16th head coach in the history of the program, which has compiled a 228-3108 record, and the seventh coach since 1999. East is 33-80 since 2000 even after two winning campaigns during recently departed coach Brian Hinson’s 17-19 tenure that covered three seasons. Hinson raised the level of expectations and instilled a winning attitude. Fan support is solid. Tedder has his work cut out, but he won’t have to start from scratch.

Salisbury’s Nick Summers leads the pack down the frontstretch during the 1,600 meters at the county meet. Summers has signed with UNC Asheville.

Love at first sight for Summers BY BRET STRELOW

bstrelow@salisburypost.com

A parental tip played a role in the recruitment of Salisbury runner Nick Summers, who stepped away from an intense pick-up basketball game to take the call that determined his college destination.

Summers has signed with UNC Asheville, where he will participate in track and cross country. The Bulldogs were the first program to express interest in the senior who recently helped Salisbury win a second straight 2A track title. “It’s kind of like first falling in love,” Summers said. “They were the

first school to contact me. I carried that all throughout my senior year.” Salisbury alum Adam Vick is an assistant on coach Jesse Norman’s staff at Asheville, and that connection helped create exposure for Summers. Vick’s parents saw some of the times Summers was posting at Salisbury during the fall and informed

their son. “I have my idea of what fast times are. What do my parents think fast times are?” Vick said with a laugh. “I looked, saw what Nick was running and was like, ‘Those are some pretty good times.’ ”

Braves take over first in NL East BY GEORGE HENRY Associated Press

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Phillies starter Joe Blanton gets cooled down Monday.

ATLANTA — Chipper Jones knows the Braves 9 Philadelphia Phillies 3 Phillies’ lineup is too potent to stay quiet for long. “At some point they’re going to break out of it,” he said. “You just hope it’s not against you. We’ve been fortunate.” The Braves capitalized on another punchless Phillies’ effort to move into first place in the NL East with a 9-3 victory Monday. Jones and Troy Glaus homered to back a strong start by Tommy Hanson. The Braves,

winners of six straight, are onehalf game ahead of Philadelphia, which has dropped nine of 13. “Frustrated? Yes, we’re frustrated,” said Phillies left fielder Raul Ibanez, who had one of three RBI doubles in the seventh. “But we’re not down. This is a team of guys that are going to fight and scratch and claw.” Improving to 16-4 since May 10, the Braves have made up 71⁄2 games in the NL East since May 17, when they were in last place. Atlanta hasn’t held first place in the NL East this late in a season since they won the last of 14 straight division titles in 2005.

Rowan County, South washed out From staff reports

Lots of rain on Memorial Day. The Rowan County American Legion team’s home game with Surry County was washed out. The teams hope to play near the end of the regular season on June 28. Rowan has rescheduled several other rainouts — Stanly (June 6), Wilkes (June 16) and Concord (at Central Cabarrus High, June 21). Even without the East Rowan players, Rowan has managed to get off to a 2-0 start in the league.  South Rowan’s game with Mooresville was postponed from Monday to this Thursday. It’s a key one. South is off to a strong 5-1 start, while Mooresville holds first place in the Southern Division of Area III. South’s only loss came in a non-league game against the Moors by a 6-4 margin.  The Concord-Stanly also was rained out on Monday.  Mocksville beat Randolph County 13-2 on Monday. After a very slow start, Mocksville has heated up offensively. It scored six runs in the first inning and was well on its way to a 10-run rule win. Tyler Jordan, Nick Burwell and red-hot Joe Watson contributed two hits each to lead a 10-hit attack. Bret Peterson smacked his first homer and the team’s fourth. Mocksville went without a homer in its first 180 atbats this season. Tyler Howard pitched six solid innings and struck out

nine for the win.

Blackhawks ahead 2-0 on Philadelphia BY RICK GANO Associated Press

CHICAGO — Antti Niemi was unflapBlackhawks 2 pable as the Flyers 1 Stanley Cup finals turned defensive in Game 2. Different style of game from the opener, yet another victory for the Chicago Blackhawks. Niemi made 14 of his 32 saves in the final period and Chicago beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 to take a 2-0 series lead on Monday night. “It’s unbelievable feeling how the people react,” Niemi said as the crowd cheered him and chanted his name after the game. “Defense was the key.” After a 6-5 Chicago victory in the opener when the teams traded goals, both clubs tightened up their defense. The tone was more physical and chippy from the outset. The Blackhawks, who for the second straight game got no points from their two young

stars Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, broke through against Michael Leighton when Marian Hossa and Ben Eager scored 28 seconds apart late in the second period. And after the Flyers got a power-play goal from Simon Gagne early in the third, Niemi withstood a late flurry from the Flyers to preserve Chicago’s seventh straight win. “I thought their goaltender played extremely well in the third period. We had more than enough looks to tie up that game,” Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette said. Games 3 and 4 will be played in Philadelphia. Patrick Sharp fired a shot from the left circle, and after Leighton stopped it and with Chicago’s Troy Brouwer battling for the puck, Hossa poked it in from the left side with 2:51 left in the second. Hossa, in his third straight Stanley Cup finals with a different team, got his third goal of the playoffs and first since May 5 against Van-

couver in the conference semifinals. Just 28 seconds later with the crowd still abuzz, Dustin Byfuglien made a steal and passed the puck to fourth-line forward Eager. Eager skated to the right circle and unleashed a shot that beat Leighton high on the glove side to make it 2-0. It was the first goal of the playoffs for the former Flyers forward. Philadelphia broke through with 1 second left on a power play when Gagne scored from the left circle. Gagne nearly chipped in a tying rebound about 7 minutes later, but was denied by Niemi’s pad in close. Leighton, who was drafted by the Blackhawks and played parts of two seasons for them, got the nod despite being pulled in Game 1 after yielding five goals on 20 shots. He made 24 saves Monday night. Trying to get more punch, the Flyers inserted forward Daniel Carcillo into the lineup. A scratch the last three games

and known for his agitating style, Carcillo was the team leader in playoff penalty minutes (30) entering the game and joined Philadelphia captain Mike Richards and Jeff Carter on a first line that had been pointless in the opener. Carcillo replaced Gagne to start the game — Gagne later returned to the top line — and immediately began to mix things up. He took a run at Chicago’s Tomas Kopecky and inadvertently flattened teammate Carter. The Flyers were called for their first penalty of the series with 5:12 left in the opening period, bringing out a loud roar from the crowd as the Blackhawks went on a power play for the first time in nearly 75 minutes. They couldn’t score. About three minutes later, Chicago went on another power play when there were three penalties called simultaneously — two on the Flyers with Carcillo being sent to the box for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Busch brothers taking charge of NASCAR BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press

CONCORD — It’s not that common for siblings to reach the highest level of a professional sport, and when it happens, one of them typically toils in the shadow of the superstar. That’s been the case the past five years in NASCAR, where the Busch Brothers were never in the same league. Big brother Kurt hit his peak in 2004, when he won his only NASCAR championship, but his results were up-and-down after that banner season. Then along came Kyle, seven years his junior and a headline maker from the very beginning. When Kyle raised his game in 2008 to become a title contender, Kurt was off the pace and searching for solutions. When Kurt turned it around and climbed back into the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship last year, Kyle was in a slump that led to the late-season firing of his crew chief. After five years competing against each other in NASCAR’s elite division, the early hopes of a bitter championship battle between brothers had faded. My, how things have changed. The Busch Brothers are finally running at the same level, setting up a potential sizzling showdown over the upcoming long summer stretch of racing. Kurt Busch completed a twoweek sweep of Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday night,

closing out the first win for team owner Roger Penske in the prestigious Coca-Cola 600 eight days after claiming the $1 million prize in the annual AllStar race. Kyle Busch, meanwhile, won the Nationwide and Trucks Series races at CMS over the last two weeks, plus the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series races at Dover earlier in May. All told, the Busch Brothers have won the last six races spanning NASCAR’s top three series. The lone NASCAR celebration not by a Busch was Martin Truex Jr.’s victory in the Sprint Showdown, an All-Star race qualifier without either brother. “That’s kind of cool,” Kyle Busch said of the family domination. Indeed it is, particularly considering how combustible these two drivers are — particularly when racing each other. Nobody has forgotten the 2007 All-Star race, when hard racing between the two led to an accident that knocked two of the strongest cars out of the event. They were furious with each other following that May accident, and it wasn’t until their grandmother insisted they make peace or risk ruining Thanksgiving dinner that the hardheaded racers resolved their dispute. That’s right, brothers who passed each other every week in the garage, the motorhome lot and on the track went six months

without speaking over an accident in a non-points event. That was three years ago, and while not much has changed with either Busch’s style — they are both still aggressive, highly focused and often hot-tempered in the race car — they have both gotten smarter. Kurt, now 31, is showing the wisdom that compliments his talent level. Although there were flashes of growth over the past few years, it was punctuated late last season when he hung strong in the Chase even after crew chief Pat Tryson announced he was leaving at the end of the season. He admitted after Sunday night’s win that his personal progress was made after realizing the mistakes of his youth. “I’m not one to go out there with a big flash and a big flare,” he said. “I used to early on. I’d run my head up against the wall. I’d run my race car up against the wall. Reviews came in negative. For me, that’s not how I wanted to be remembered.” And he didn’t hesitate in choosing Steve Addington, who was fired in October by Kyle Busch, as his new crew chief. Since taking over the No. 2 Dodge this season, Addington has guided Busch to two points wins, the All-Star race victory, and seven top-10s in 13 races. “What I really enjoy about Steve is the confidence he gives me in the car and the adjustments that he makes,” Kurt

Busch said. “I feel like he’s helped me pick up my game because I have to have a fresher outlook on different setups.” Kyle, who just turned 25, is still a work in progress. His raw talent has never been questioned, but his decision-making isn’t always the best, particularly when he can smell victory. He wrecked out of last week’s All-Star race when he and teammate Denny Hamlin raced each other hard in the closing laps, and a furious Jeff Burton confronted him following the 600 to discuss how aggressive Kyle Busch had been on the final restart. Hamlin chided his teammate last week as being too immature to win a Cup championship, and Kurt Busch seemed to agree when he wondered if his younger brother shouldn’t have backed down in the All-Star race. “He’s been running these AllStar races for a few years now, running at a 1,000 percent pace every year,” Kurt said. “It doesn’t take a 1,000 percent pace to win it.” Maybe Kyle Busch figured that out over the weekend, when he came from two laps down to win the Nationwide Series race and overcame a pit-road disaster while leading the 600 to rally for a third-place finish. “These are the kind of races that make a championship,” he said after the 600. If he’s right, and both Buschs are involved, it could be a very exciting time for NASCAR.

A-Rod slams Tribe Associated Press

NEW YORK — Alex R o driguez hit his second grand slam of the season and Andy Pettitte was nearly unhittable again in the daytime, helping the New York Yankees beat Cleveland 11-2. Pettitte pitched seven innings, allowing three singles and Jhonny Peralta’s 100th career homer, while striking out five without a walk. He retired his last 14 batters. Both of Rodriguez’s slams this season came after Mark Teixeira was intentionally walked ahead of him. A-Rod is 5-for-5 with 18 RBIs when teams intentionally pitch around Teixeira. “I felt it coming, for some reason,” Rodriguez said. “I would appreciate if we keep these numbers to ourselves, and not share them with any other managers.” Roriguez’s seventh homer leaves him 10 shy off 600. Angels 7, Royals 1 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Ervin Santana pitched seven strong innings and the Angels didn’t need any late-game heroics, roughing up Luke Hochevar early on the way to a win over the Royals. Athletics 4, Tigers 1 DETROIT — Rajai Davis scored twice and Trevor Cahill continued to pitch well as the Athletics beat the Tigers. Blue Jays 3, Rays 2 TORONTO — Evan Longoria tripled off Kevin Gregg with one out in the ninth, but he was thrown out trying to score on John Jaso’s grounder to shortstop for the second out. NATIONAL LEAGUE Rockies 4, Giants 0 SAN FRANCISCO — Ubaldo Jimenez pitched a four-hitter to become the majors’ first 10-game winner this year, outpitching Tim Lincecum to lead Colorado past the Giants. “My Adrenalin was really high,” Jimenez said. “Everyone was expecting that game — my parents, neighbors, everyone back in my country, and in Denver, too. ... Everyone was expecting that game and waiting to get in front of the TV.” Clint Barmes hit a two-run single in the second inning that held up for Jimenez (10-1). He struck out nine, lowered his big league-best ERA to 0.78 and extended his career-best scoreless innings streak to 26. Jimenez became the 15th pitcher since 1952 to win 10 or more games by June 1, with Brandon Webb the last to do it in 2008. Marlins 13, Brewers 5 MIAMI — Cody Ross hit a three-run homer to spark Florida’s biggest inning this year, Cameron Maybin hit an inside-the-park home run to help the Marlins erase an early four-run deficit. Pirates 2, Cubs 1 PITTSBURGH — Pinchhitter Bobby Crosby singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning, Garrett Jones homered and the Pirates ended a five-game losing streak. Nationals 14, Astros 4 HOUSTON — Carlos Maldonado and Ryan Zimmerman hit three-run homers off Chris Sampson, long after Roy Oswalt was ejected, and Washington put together the highest scoring inning in Nationals’ history. Zimmerman and Adam Dunn drove in four runs apiece and both chipped in during a nine-run seventh. The Nationals said Stephen Strasburg is scheduled to make his major league debut against Pittsburgh on June 8. Cardinals 12, Reds 4 ST. LOUIS — Albert Pujols continued his torrid hitting and rookie Jaime Garcia overcame a shaky start for St. Louis, which moved into a first-place tie in the NL Central with Cincinnati. Pujols extended his streak of reaching base to nine straight plate appearances with two intentional walks and a single his first three times up. He hit into a double play in the fifth inning. Dodgers 5, Diamondbacks 4 LOS ANGELES — A balk by Esmerling Vasquez allowed Casey Blake to score the winning run in the bottom of the ninth.

NCSU’s Hill turning pro Associated Press

RALEIGH — Reigning NCAA golf champion Matt Hill is turning pro, skipping his final year at N.C. State after missing a chance to defend his title. Hill announced Monday that he will make his pro debut this week at the PGA Tour’s Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village. The 21-year-old Hill was one of the top-ranked amateurs in the world last year. He won seven college tournaments besides the NCAA championship to earn the Haskins Award as outstanding college golfer. This year the junior failed to advance out of the East Regional. He competed in three PGA Tour events as an amateur last summer, making the cut at the AT&T Classic and tying for 70th. Hill, who signed with IMG, felt his game was ready last year, “but now I’m finally ready for that lifestyle.”

NBA

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Lakers center Andrew Bynum’s troublesome right knee was drained of excess fluid Monday. Bynum hopes the procedure will allow him to play closer to full strength in the NBA finals against the Boston Celtics. Los Angeles plays host to Game 1 on Thursday night. “It was getting worse,” Bynum said. “The swelling wasn’t leaving, so they had to do it. I was doing the treatment, but it wasn’t going anywhere.”  ORLANDO, Fla. — Forward Matt Barnes says he will opt out

of the final year of his contract with the Magic to become a free agent.

TENNIS

PARIS — Four-time French Open champion Justine Henin lost 2-6, 6-1, 6-4 to No. 7-seeded Sam Stosur in the fourth round, ending Henin’s 24-match winning streak at her favorite event. “Everyone wants to see me (at) the level that I was,” said Henin, who abruptly retired in May 2008 while ranked No. 1, then returned to the tour this season and reached the Australian Open final in January. “I still have to work a lot, quite simply.” Serena Williams stumbled at the start before cruising to a 6-2, 6-2 victory over No. 18 Shahar Peer. Williams dropped the first seven points of the match. The other quarterfinal in that half of the draw will pit No. 4 Jelena Jankovic against 36thranked Yaroslava Shvedova. Jankovic beat No. 23 Daniela Hantuchova 6-4, 6-2, while Shvedova beat Jarmila Groth 6-4, 6-3. In men’s fourth-round matches, Rafael Nadal improved to 200-16 on clay over his career by overcoming four breaks of serve to defeat No. 24 Thomaz Bellucci 6-2, 7-5, 6-4. A year ago, Now Nadal will meet No. 19 Nicolas Almagro, who knocked off No. 7 Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 1-6, 6-1, 6-4. Also Monday, No. 3 Novak Djokovic eliminated the last U.S. man in the tournament, 98th-ranked Robby Ginepri, 6-4, 2-6, 6-1, 6-2. No. 22 Jurgen Melzer beat Teimuraz Gabashvili 7-6 (6), 4-6, 6-1, 6-4.

Heels slip into NCAA field BY DENNIS WASZAK JR. Associated Press

NEW YORK — Arizona State made it easy for the NCAA selection committee. The Sun Devils (47-8) overcame a sudden coaching change before the season, won the Pac-10 title and were chosen Monday as the top seed for the 64-team Division I college baseball tournament. The other national seeds, in order, are: Texas (46-11), Florida (42-15), Coastal Carolina (51-7), Virginia (47-11), UCLA (43-13), Louisville (48-12) and Georgia Tech (45-13). The ACC Pac-10 and SEC each had eight teams selected, all-time highs for both the ACC and Pac-10. “It was a unique feature for us, especially when it came to trying to determine how we distribute these teams from a regional standpoint,” committee chairman Tim Weiser said. North Carolina, which has made four straight College World Series appearances, made the tournament as an at-large selection despite not qualifying for the ACC tournament. The Tar Heels (36-20) have been ranked in the top 30 for much of the season. “We have not had that as a criteria, and we have not suggested to the membership that they have to make a conference tournament,” Weiser said. “I think in North Carolina’s case, the argument can be made that they had a very good season.” North Carolina earned the No. 3 seed in the Norman Regional. It will play No. 2 seed Cal (29-23) on Friday night. The other game involves No. 1 seed Oklahoma and No. 4 seed Oral Roberts. N.C. State (38-22) is the No. 3 seed in the Myrtle Beach Regional. The Wolfpack will face No. 2 seed College of Charleston (42-17) on Friday night. Florida International’s Garrett Wittels will carry a 54-game hitting streak into the Coral Gables Regional and an opening-round matchup against Texas A&M. Wittels is four games shy of matching Robin Ventura’s Division I record of 58 consecutive games with at least one hit, set in 1987 for Oklahoma State.

BRAVES FROM 1C

Philadelphia, which was shut out in five of its previous eight games, had just three hits off Hanson (5-3) before the right-hander left with two outs in the seventh. Lowering his ERA to 3.78, Hanson struck out two and did not allow a walk after issuing three in the first two innings. The righthander benefited from double plays that ended scoring threats in the first and second. “Those were huge,” Hanson said. “They set our defense, and I started hitting my spots and throwing a little more strikes.”

“Late in the year you’re always matched up with everyone else’s best,” Wittels said. “It’s win or go home basically. I know it’s twogame elimination, but every game really counts.” Mercer, which won the Atlantic Sun Conference tournament, is the lone team making its first appearance. New Mexico is in for the first time since 1962, while Oregon is playing in the tournament for the first time since 1964. The Ducks are in their second season since restarting their program under former Cal State Fullerton coach George Horton. Miami extended its NCAA record by making its 38th consecutive appearance, while Florida State is in for the 33rd straight year. The Seminoles are the only No. 1 seed not hosting a regional. They’ll travel to Norwich, Conn., where Connecticut is the host team after the selection committee chose to place a regional in a nontraditional geographical area. “I think we felt like if we could do this without sacrificing the integrity of our seeding process and what we consider to be our top 16 seeds, we at least needed to explore that,” Weiser said. “It was the right thing to do given the option of a Northeast location that we don’t usually have.” Two teams with losing records earned automatic berths by winning their conference titles: Patriot League champion Bucknell (25-33) and Southwestern Conference winner Grambling (22-30). Weiser said the committee had to consider about 12 teams for the tournament’s last two spots. Among schools left out were: Kentucky, Texas State and Pittsburgh. East Carolina went 32-27 this season, Charlotte (39-17) lost to Saint Louis in the Conference USA title game and Appalachian State went 38-18-1. The 16 regional winners move on to the best-of-three super regionals, with those winners advancing to the College World Series, which begins June 19 in Omaha, Neb. It will be the last one played at Rosenblatt Stadium, the home of college baseball’s premier event since 1950. The eight-team championship will move to a new ballpark in downtown Omaha next season.

Atlanta took a 3-0 lead in the first on Jones’ third homer, a two-run shot, and Eric Hinske’s RBI single. In the third, the Braves went up 60 on an RBI by Hinske and Yunel Escobar’s two-run double. Glaus’ eighth homer, a three-run shot in the seventh off reliever Chad Durbin, made it 9-3. Braves manager Bobby Cox is proud of his team’s recent surge, but he isn’t about to count out the Phillies. “There’s a lot of baseball left, but we have made a great recovery,” he said. “We bent a little bit, but we never broke.” The Phillies began the game as the first club since the 1992 Chicago Cubs to get shut out five times over an eight-game span, according to the team.

Ten Things you can do today to stop global warming.

1. Change a light. REPLACING ONE REGULAR LIGHT BULB WITH A COMPACT FLUORESCENT LIGHT BULB WILL SAVE 150 POUNDS OF CARBON DIOXIDE A YEAR. 2. Drive less. WALK, BIKE, CARPOOL OR TAKE A BUS MORE OFTEN. YOU’LL SAVE ONE POUND OF CARBON DIOXIDE FOR EVERY MILE YOU DON’T DRIVE! 3. Recycle more. YOU CAN SAVE 2400 POUNDS OF CARBON DIOXIDE PER YEAR BY RECYCLING JUST HALF OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD WASTE! 4. Check your tires. KEEPING YOUR TIRES INFLATED PROPERLY CAN IMPROVE GAS MILEAGE BY MORE THAN 3%. AND EVERY GALLON OF GASOLINE SAVED KEEPS 20 POUNDS OF CARBON DIOXIDE OUT OF THE ATMOSPHERE!

5. Use less hot water. INSTALL A LOW FLOW SHOWERHEAD (350 POUNDS OF CO2 SAVED PER YEAR) AND WASHING YOUR CLOTHES IN COLD WATER (500 POUNDS SAVED PER YEAR) 6. Avoid products with a lot of packaging. YOU CAN SAVE 1200 POUNDS OF C02 IF YOU CUT DOWN YOUR GARBAGE BY 10%. 7. Adjust your thermostat. MOVING YOUR THERMOSTAT 2 DEGREES IN WINTER AND UP 2 DEGREES IN SUMMER COULD SAVE ABOUT 2000 POUNDS OF CARBON DIOXIDE A YEAR. 8. Plant a tree. A SINGLE TREE WILL ABSORB ONE TON OF CARBON DIOXIDE OVER ITS LIFETIME. 9. Turn off electronic devices. TURNING OFF YOUR TV, DVD, STEREO AND COMPUTER WHEN YOU’RE NOT USING THEM WILL SAVE THOUSANDS OF LBS. OF CO2 A YEAR. 10. Go online.

TEDDER FROM 1C

He comes from a school where the coaching staff was as stable as West Rowan’s or A.L. Brown’s. “We had four or five guys who were there 10 years or more,” he said. When head coach Barry Mitchem left West Davidson to be Carson’s first offensive line coach, West Davidson defensive coordinator Dale Barnes was promoted to head coach. Tedder, who had been the defensive line and special teams coach, made the natural progression to defensive coordinator. “I was Dale’s right-hand man for many years, and our defensive packages were a blend of his ideas and mine,” Tedder said. “I learned more

football from Dale than anyone, and I learned a lot about offensive-line play from Coach Mitchem.” Most years, West Davidson had good athletes with superior work ethics. Their daily motto was “Let’s go to work.” Stable, creative coaching also was a factor in the rural school competing with traditional powers such as Salisbury and Lexington. From 1999-2008, West Davidson was 73-47. It collected CCC banners in 2007 and 2008. The system was ball-control, power offense and hard-nosed defense. The Green Dragons actually beat Salisbury three years in a row from 2005-07, when the Hornets weren’t losing to very many people. The son of a coach, Tedder spent his childhood in gyms dreaming of following in his father’s footsteps.

SALISBURY POST

Tedder was coaching at West Davidson while still doing his student teaching in 1994, and the Appalachian State graduate never found a reason to leave. West Davidson officially hired him as a teacher in 1996 when a P.E. job opened up, and he’s been thrilled to be a Green Dragon. Tedder grew up in the Enochville community in southern Rowan County. His parents were teachers. Jim Tedder coached at Cannon Junior High in Kannapolis and at A.L. Brown. Tedder’s parents decided to move back to their Montgomery roots when he was set to enter the seventh grade at Corriher-Lipe. Tedder played on both lines for West Montgomery’s football team before heading to Appalachian to pursue a P.E. degree and coaching future.

He’s coached wrestling and track at West Davidson, but he’ll get to concentrate exclusively on football at East. Even with head-coaching responsibilities, he figures to have more family time than he’s had handling three sports. “I asked my son what he thought about me being a head coach, and he liked that idea,” Tedder said. “Then I asked him, ‘But what if it’s not at West Davidson?’ He had to think about that, but he was all for it if it meant I’d have more time with him. That’s what really sold me.” Look for Drew Tedder as a future East ballboy. He filled that role for the West Davidson jayvees last season. Tedder already knows about returning quarterback Jamey Blalock, who accounted for 17 touchdowns as

a junior while putting up 836 rushing yards and 824 passing yards. “(Principal) Kelly Sparger told me he’s a super kid and someone all the players look up to,” Tedder said. “That’s a great start. I can’t wait to meet him and all the players.” Tedder plans to meet with his new assistants today. He realizes how critical they are to any future success. “Guys on a coaching staff have to be like brothers during that long season,” he said. He hopes to meet face-to-face with the players by Thursday. He’ll tell them he expects to see them graduate and expects to coach their little brothers down the road. “I’m not looking at East as a jumping-off point to some higher job,” he said. “This is my dream job right here. If they want me and if they like what I’m doing, I’ll be here until I retire.”

Thomas Allen, a UNC Pembroke signee who is East’s No. 1 starter, has pitched only 12⁄3 innings in the playoffs because of an injury. Troutman, Parker Gobbel, jayvee call-up Alex Bost, Bradley Robbins and relief whiz Will Johnson have performed admirably. The Mustangs won a 3A state title in 1995, and Hunt is making its second championship series appearance. It played South Mecklenburg for the 4A title in 1989 and lost in three games.

Vick passed the information along to Norman, who attended the 1A/2A/3A state indoor meet held in Chapel Hill on Feb. 20. Summers finished fifth in the mile and also competed in the 1,000 meters. Summers was playing VICK basketball with Isaiah Goodman and some other friends at Jersey City Park when a call from Norman led to an extended timeout. “I kind of went off to talk, and they were giving me a hard time because we were in the middle of a game,” Summers said. “They were like, ‘You need to hurry up because we’re trying to finish this game,’ and it was getting kind of dark.” Summers visited UNCA about two weeks after the state indoor meet. He said he liked the campus setting and the program’s commitment to its distance runners. Norman won 3A state titles in the 3,200 and 1,600 for Fuquay-Varina before becoming a Western Carolina standout. Vick ran for both St. Andrews and UNCA. Summers is known for his closing speed, and a strong finish to the mile at the state indoor meet impressed Norman. “A lot of times when freshmen get up here, everybody they run against is as good as they are,” he said. “The fact that somebody is out of the race and runs themself back into it really impresses me. When I saw that, I got really excited. I was like, ‘There goes somebody that doesn’t give up easily. That’s somebody I can work with to get faster and stronger down the road.’ ”

A new old doctor joins Salisbury Chiropractic

TUESDAY, JUNE 1, 2010

David D. Godwin, DC, returns to his roots Dr. David Godwin is a native of Salisbury as is his wife, Lori — Cleveland, to be specific. They both graduated from West Rowan and he from Catawba where he received his BA in Chemistry and Biology in 1979, after which he attended graduate school at the University of SC in pursuit of a PhD in Biochemistry. Unhappy with the thought of a career spent behind closed doors in a laboratory, he changed directions at the encouragement of a chiropractor friend in Mooresville, and so 29 years ago, he entered Chiropractic college. He and Lori ultimately landed in Connecticut where they ended up staying and practicing for 25 years, in the small town of Canaan. Canaan's proximity to New York City made for an eclectic patient base, including numerous celebrity types and even a few academy award winners. Perhaps of greater interest, though, is Dr. Godwin's association with a different sort of celebrity who is known here as well — Dr. Peter Gott of "Ask Dr. Gott" fame. Godwin even now writes a recurring guest column on his friend Peter’s website, "AskDrGott.com." David and Lori's return home to Salisbury is an amazing tale of "it was meant to be” proportions. They came to Cleveland on Christmas Eve in 2008, as a surprise visit to Lori's parents. It was at that time they began to understand that they needed to come back "home." His parents had already passed, but like Lori's parents were now doing, they had pleaded with them to move back as well. On their drive back to Connecticut after that Christmas visit they discussed the complexities of the situation the entire 12 hours. Did he really want to leave an established 25 year practice with a large, hard-earned patient base? He had a very close association with the local medical community where not only did they routinely refer patients to his office but they themselves and their families were his patients. Did he want to start all over as the unknown new guy in town? What about the children? They enjoyed visiting North Carolina but did they want to live there? He would need to sell his practice, the office building, their home — AND get a license to practice in NC. On this end, they'd need to find a home in the area here and to find a place to prac-

tice. All this in an economy that was the worst in years, especially for the housing market. By the time they were back in Connecticut they had made the decision to move, along with their four children, taking them away from the only home they had known. Two of them, twin daughters adopted from Romania when they were 7, were 13 at that time and would be the hardest hit for having to leave those friends who had helped them in their transition to America. They had already changed schools twice. Would they transition well to yet another school and new friends? They prayed and questioned if they were making the right decision. They decided that if it was meant to be then all of the pieces would fall in place. So David listed his practice for sale that spring at various chiropractic schools and state associations, but decided not to list their home, in case the house sold and the practice didn’t. He began taking the various exams necessary to be able to take the NC board exam for licensing — a daunting task for someone who had been out of school for 25 years. In September of 2009 he received a call from a chiropractor who had been practicing in New Jersey but wanted to move to Connecticut to be closer to her family. She came to see the practice and seemed quite enthusiastic about it -- so much so that David and Lori decided to go ahead and put their house on the market. They were still concerned that the practice would sell but not their home, due to the market conditions. However, the very next day before Lori could call the agent, they received a call from HIM stating that he remembered they had an interest in putting their house on the market in the spring — and were they still interested, because he thought he had someone who wanted to buy it! Within 2 days the house was sold. The other chiropractor then committed to buying the practice and the building. The pieces of the puzzle had begun falling into place. David and Lori now needed a home in Rowan County and a place for him to hang his shingle. Dr. Michael Pryor at Salisbury Chiropractic, David's former brother-in-law, was now running the

chiropractic program at the VA Medical Center, while continuing his practice by working lunches and evenings. Dr. Pryor was looking for someone who could take over his practice to free him up to concentrate on the VA. So David had a place to hang his shingle! Another piece in place. Now for a home. Since childhood, Lori had an interest in a house in her hometown of Cleveland. It was just outside the doors of the church she attended as a young girl. It was during their visit home that Christmas that they found out that the home was, amazingly, about to go on the market. However, they were not in a position to make an offer, as they were still "in limbo" in Connecticut. Then right about the time they got a commitment on their home up north, they heard that an offer had been made on the Cleveland home and had been accepted. With sadness, they felt that their amazing puzzle had stopped coming together. But just as they began looking into other possibilities, the prospective buyers backed out and the house was back on the market. So, of course, guess where the Godwins live now! They bought it without ever seeing the inside, except for pictures. And so the puzzle was active again. The weekend after the closing David took the NC state board and passed. He now had his license, a new place to practice, his old practice and building sold, their old home sold and a new home to move into. All of the pieces had fallen into place to complete the puzzle that seemed so daunting almost exactly a year earlier.

here in Salisbury since the first of the year. He enjoys meeting the new faces in the office, many of which remind him of the patients he had in Connecticut . "They just now speak with a bit of a southern drawl," he says with a laugh. Their daughters have transitioned nicely and have made new friends and also enjoy having family on hand to dote over them. One of their sons remained in New England to attend college in Boston and their other son relocated with them and will be following the family tradition of attending Catawba College. The Godwins live about a mile from Lori's parents and can get together almost daily. Instead of discussing American Idol over the phone, they now all watch it together. David admits that sometimes they do miss their lives in Connecticut. They enjoyed their proximity to NYC and Boston and the New England countryside. They miss the many friends they left behind in the small town where everybody knew everybody. They were active in the community and the church where David was on the board of trustees. But he and Lori have been visiting new churches in Rowan County, and they are ultimately happy to be back "home." They love the sunshine and warm temperatures and all of the friendly people full of southern hospitality as well as BBQ, iced tea and hotdogs and hamburgers “all the way”. David remarks that they do miss the Capitol and Terrace Theaters and the 601 Drive-In — obviously many changes have occurred in the area since they left 29 years ago!

David Godwin has now been practicing

SOMETIMES IT’S JUST THE SMALL STUFF The loss of a loved one through death or divorce, the empty-nest syndrome, a financial crisis, or ill health due to age or disease, can be mindaltering circumstances. These may require long periods of healing. But sometimes it’s just the “smallstuff” that may ruin a moment, an hour, or a day. An unexpected storm can really screw up a picnic, a camping trip, or worst of all an outdoor wedding. Small things like ants or mosquitoes can mess up a picnic or a walk in the evening. A gentle breeze can improve a stroll in the park anytime, but a tornado can destroy people, places, or things. Forgetting one ingredient can ruin a favorite recipe. I know from personal experience that you won’t forget the vanilla flavoring in homemade banana pudding but once. Omitting the salt or baking soda or powder when using plain flour will remind you to buy self-rising flour the next time. It was interesting that the Sunday after I started writing this, one of my favorite preachers, Joel Osteen, preached on “Don’t sweat the small stuff.” I found that I agreed with almost everything he said: “Don’t make a mountain out of a mole hill.” “Go with the flow.” “Is it a five-minute, five-hour, or five-day problem?” “Try to see the humor in a five-minute problem.” “This too shall pass.” Sometimes it helps if we can see that God gets our attention through the “small stuff.” There are a lot of lessons we can learn. For example: At times I have to bite my tongue or at least curb my anger before I bring it to someone’s attention that I don’t appreciate the fact that in spite of my $20 sign on my handicapped accessible van, they still blocked me in. How many times has that happened now? This time it was a motorcycle parked between me and a tree. I guess he wanted to park in the shade too, but there were other shady places. I sat at Hurley Park writing about this when Kathy Chaffin from The Salisbury Post stopped to chat with me. It was so sweet when she wrote about our conversation and said, “Watching the peaceful expression on her face as she wrote, it appeared that the little aggravation may have been quickly forgotten.” She was right! Sitting there by the fountain listening to the water, the birds, and feeling the peace of God, I was putting another “small thing” in my

collection of stories of the events that happen in my life. Like Joel Osteen said, this was a five-minute problem. Now on the other hand, had I not found the owner of the motorcycle, it could have become a fivehour problem. Under those circumstances, the mole hill might have become a mountain. I heard a motorcycle joke once that went something like this: A large gang of bike riders went into a diner where one lone man was eating a hamburger. One tough guy tried to get the fellow’s attention by making some derogatory remarks and messing with the man’s food. The bully tried every way he could to raise the guy’s hackles but the man ignored him, finished his meal, paid the bill and left. The rough neck said to the bartender, “He’s not much of a man, is he?” The bartender replied, “He ain’t much of a driver either; he just plowed down all those motorcycles out there.” Now if I didn’t have Jesus in my heart after five hours or five days of a little mole hill becoming a mountainous problem, I might not be much of a driver either. I’ve heard a lot of comments about how well I can handle my scooter. I always tell folks if I can’t handle it after sixteen years, there would be no good excuse. (But I do go out of my way not to hit people, cars, or motorcycles.) There are some days that temptation to be hateful, mean, or ugly could get hold of me if I were not a firm believer who wants to be more “Christ-like” in all I do. So back to the “small stuff;” a handicapped person has to perform in a bigger way than healthy people. Even now as multiple sclerosis shows itself again, the difficulty of standing, dressing, and transferring reminds me of the difference between small mole hills and major mountain ranges. But I’m still not confined to bed, I can read and write, and still drive the van, so I am blessed with that peace that Kathy saw on my face. Now if you happen to see a black van with a white sign on the passenger side that reads “Ramp van, allow 8’ for clearance,” and it is parked in a haphazard way or hogging two parking spaces, just smile and think something like this: “Well, Linda is practicing selfdefense and she is at peace.” Even if you want one of those parking spaces, find peace and don’t sweat the “small stuff.” I doubt if I will ever be in one place five hours.

Myths and misconceptions of long-term health care Submitted by Eric Brady

Even the words long-term health care can sound scary or confusing, but if you have the facts, the term can be reassuring. Here are some common myths and misconceptions from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans to help you make an educated decision about your possible long-term care needs.

Undernourishment and malnutrition are serious problems for America’s growing 65+ population. In fact, as many as half of all seniors cared for at home suffer from being under- or malnourished (Mayo Clinic/American Dietetic Association). To raise awareness for this growing problem, in conjunction with Older Americans Month in May, Comfort Keepers kicked off a nationwide Serving Seniors. Nourishing Lives. initiative to collect healthy food items for distribution to seniors in the community. “Malnutrition and undernourishment in seniors are not always obvious, so caregivers and loved ones should pay special attention to the signs,” said Lori Eberly, owner of the local Comfort Keepers. “About 30 million older Americans live with chronic diseases that nutrition therapies can effectively manage and treat, so some simple dietary changes can make a big difference for seniors.” Beginning in May and contin-

uing through the summer months, Comfort Keepers would like to encourage people to make food donations that have added nutritional value for seniors. "During the summer months many food pantries do not have a sufficient supply of food to distribute and we wanted to do our part , starting in May which is Older Americans month, to ensure that area seniors are able to get the food that they need in order to remain nourished.', said Eberly. Comfort Keepers® recommends the following foods for donation: peanut butter, lowsodium canned vegetables and soups, and protein-rich meal substitutes. Food donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday 9:30a-5p at Comfort Keepers, 1717 W Innes St, Salisbury NC 28144. Any business or organization interested in collecting food at their location for the Comfort Keepers Serving Seniors. Nourishing Lives Food Drive can contact Comfort Keepers at 704-630-0370 or via email at lorieberly@comfortkeepers.com

Comfort Keepers® is a leading franchise network in the in-home care market for senior and other adults needing care. Since its founding in 1998, the company has grown to approximately 610 independently owned and operated franchise locations around the world by maintaining the founders’ goal of providing in-home care services that allowed their clients the opportunity to age in place. In August of 2009, CK Franchising, Inc.’s brand was strengthened even further when it was purchased by Sodexo, one of the world’s leading food and facilities management services companies and the global leader in the health care and seniors markets.

We are looking for photos, stories (fiction or nonfiction) and articles of interest to include in future editions of Prime Time.

One of the easiest summer treats -- requiring no more prep than a good rinsing -- is to sit down with a big bowl of cherries and simply enjoy them in their natural form. But these fruits have far more versatility than that and they make even simple recipes shine. Even the most dedicated cooks often look for simplified recipes in the summer, to avoid standing by a hot oven or stove top. But whether you're a beginner or an astute foodie, you can easily put together dishes - from the main course to fresh Bing cherry pie for dessert -- that will impress family and friends. Main dish: Don't be afraid to try out cherries in unexpected ways. A dressed-up salad can be a perfect summer evening meal. While greens and grilled chicken are a well-loved pairing, tossing in some chopped cherries adds a new dimension. Try adding toasted walnuts and crumbles of a mild bleu cheese to the mix as well.

(ARA) - The pleasures of summer -- its warm temperatures, its long days, its holidays and its bounty of fresh foods -- make it an infinitely lovable season. It's no wonder we look forward to it throughout the rest of the year. Many people plant fruits and vegetables in late spring, after the last danger of frost has passed, but the wait to harvest those treats can be long. Luckily, a bounty of fruit is ready at the start of summer, in the form of sweet Bing cherries.

Drink it in: Skip the boring beverages - you can make your own drinks that will really be a hit. After pitting, put Bing cherries in your blender and liquefy. Then, strain the liquid into pre-made lemonade for a memorable cherry lemonade. For a more grown-up approach, add sliced cherries to red wine for a sweet take on sangria. Sweet side: Get creative with fruit salad to accompany your main dishes. Melon and grape mixes are a bit overdone -- be inspired by colors and flavors, and don't be afraid to try something new. Grab a cherry pitter to make the prep work a little easier, and combine California Bing cherries with other dark fruits, like blackberries, plums and black grapes; or, use their rich color as a counterpoint to lighter fruits. For a little zing, add grated ginger or slivered mint to taste.

Our editorial board will choose timely and relevant material for publication in an upcoming issue and notify you if your piece is chosen.

Just desserts: Pie can be an intimidating dish, partially because it is often an involved process that yields a dessert only after hours of complicated labor. But the baking-phobic who love the dessert can breathe a sigh of relief: there is such a thing as an easy cherry pie recipe. The California Cherry Advisory Board's "Easy as Bing Cherry Pie" is as simple as it gets -- with foolproof, delicious results.

Easy as Bing Cherry Pie Ingredients: Bottom crust: 1 (9-inch) refrigerated pie crust Pie filling: 5 cups fresh California Bing cherries, pitted 1 cup sugar 1 tablespoon tapioca flour Crumb topping: 1/2 cup regular rolled oats 1/4 cup white sugar 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon butter, melted 1/2 tsp pinch ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp salt Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Step 1: Crust. A wide selection of pre-made pie crusts is available in the refrigerator or frozen section of your local grocery store. Most will come in an oven-safe aluminum pie pan. (Note: It is a good idea to place the pan on a cookie sheet for stability while assembling and then place in the oven.) Step 2: Pit cherries. Fresh Bing cherries must be pitted for this recipe. And, since you'll need 5 cups, this step is the most time-consuming in the process. However, a simple cherry pitting device can likely be purchased at your grocery store and will do the job quite nicely. Make sure to wear an apron in case you splatter juice. If you have young children around, they may enjoy helping to pit the cherries. More hands will make the job go much faster, but it is recommended taking this activity outside. Step 3: Filling. Combine the pitted cherries in a bowl with sugar and tapioca flour. Mix well and spoon into the prepared pie crust. Step 4. Topping. Technically, a pie with a crumb topping is called a crisp. But those who eat this dish will love it so much they won't care what it's called. Simply combine the remaining ingredients - oats, sugar, flour, softened butter, cinnamon and salt - into a small bowl and mix until evenly distributed and crumbly. Sprinkle over the top of the filling. Place in the oven and bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 325 and bake for another 30 to 40 minutes until bubbly and browned on top. Allow to cool to room temperature. Top each slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Serves eight.

Get Help Getting Your Prescription Medications (NAPSI)-While prescription drugs can improve and prolong life, too many people fail to take their medicines as prescribed. According to the National Institutes of Health, such noncompliance is an important predictor of emergency room visits and hospital admissions, yet millions of people with chronic conditions are not getting the medication they need because they do not have health insurance coverage or are struggling financially. Fortunately, America's pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies lend a helping hand. The Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA) is a nationwide effort to help uninsured and financially struggling Americans connect with patient assistance programs that provide medicines at low or even no cost. PPA-which just celebrated its fifth anniversary-recently passed a major milestone, assisting more than 6.5 million people. Making things even easier, said Billy Tauzin, president and CEO of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), is PPA's effort to "use the latest technology available to ensure those who need help can get it." PPA now has a text hotline and smart phone application to ensure 24/7 access to information about the more than 475 participating programs. These new features give health care providers, patient advocates and patients even better access to information about participating patient assistance programs.

People who qualify may have access to more than 2,500 brand-name and generic prescription medicines. In addition, the PPA provides information on over 10,000 free clinics. It has connected more than 300,000 people with clinics and health care providers. More than 133 million Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease, which cause seven out of 10 deaths in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "Too many are struggling financially and the numbers of those losing health care benefits may continue to rise," Tauzin said. "This can be a scary time, especially considering the prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and asthma.'' Helping spread the word is former "Leave it to Beaver" star and PPA spokesman Jerry Mathers. "I've been urging people to pick up the phone, log on to the website to see if they qualify for assistance," he said. "As a patient who must cope with diabetes, I understand only too well the importance of access to the medicine you need." Anyone needing help with medicines can call (888) 4-PPA-NOW to talk to a trained operator or go to www.pparx.org. It takes only 10 to 15 minutes to find out if you qualify for free or nearly free medications.

What is Medicare Fraud?

Fraud occurs when an individual or organization deliberately deceives others in order to gain unauthorized benefit. Medicare and Medicaid fraud generally involves deliberately billing for services that were not received, or billing for a service at a higher rate than is actually justified.

What is Medicare Abuse? Medicare abuse occurs when providers supply services or products that are not medically necessary or that do not meet professional standards. - Examples of Fraud and Abuse - Billing for services and supplies that were not provided - Obtaining Medicare number for “free” services - Billing for equipment not delivered

Reminiscing Helps Ward off Depression, Study Reveals by Robin M. Perry

Q: My 85-year-old dad, who was a successful businessman, seems depressed lately and I’m not sure what I can do to pull him out of the blues. He’s starting to experience a little dementia and I know he struggles with loneliness, since he lives by himself. Reliving your dad’s glory days may help. A new study of 158 Georgia centenarians has found that past satisfaction with life, even if it's simply recalling isolated career accomplishments, is the key to happiness in our oldest years. Researchers from Iowa State University's gerontology program have helped identify what predicts happiness and long life in centenarians, as well as what causes depression in seniors 80 and older.

- “Upcoding” - improper coding to obtain a higher payment - Unneeeded or excessive x-rays and lab tests; claims for services that are not medically necessary - Billing for excessive medical supplies - Using another person’s Medicare card to obtain medical care, supplies or equipment For assitance, concact the NC SMP Program at SHIIP: 1-800-443-9354 or visit www.ncshiip.com or www.smpresource.org

Let Dad Know He’s Special.

TUESDAY, JUNE 1, 2010

All your life, Dad’s worked to comfort, guide and support you. Now that Dad needs your support, doesn’t he deserve the best you can give? At Carillon Assisted Living, he’ll enjoy a warm, caring environment that emphasizes social activities, health and wellness for adults who simply need assistance with day-to-day living. And The Garden Place at Carillon provides unsurpassed care for people with Alzheimer’s, whether it’s long term or respite care. Help for Dad that includes respect and dignity – we think that’s pretty special.

Your dad’s cognitive decline also could be contributing to depression, researchers discovered. For the depression study, researchers added 78 octogenarians (people 80 or older) to the happiness centenarian sample. They found that diminished cognitive problem-solving ability was a significant predictor of depression in octogenarians, while living in a nursing home increased depression among centenarians. Researchers also were surprised to learn that overall cognition was not a stronger predictor of depression at either age. Rather, it was the loss of the subject's control -- problem-solving in the octogenarians, and choosing where they lived in the centenarians -- that tended to depress them. While there was no indication that resources affect happiness, past life satisfaction, even individual achievements, was found to have a direct association. Why not help your dad reminisce by reconnecting with others with whom he could share stories. Senior centers, like Rufty-Homes Senior Center and churches are good places to go. Or consider hiring a caregiver companion who would love to hear all about his life. Home Instead Senior Care® hires CAREGiversSM who love to listen.

THE FINEST IN ASSISTED LIVING

“The past is the best predictor of the future, so you’re not going to turn your life around at 85 or 90,” said Peter Martin, director of Iowa State's gerontology program and a professor of human development and family studies (HDFS), who collaborated on both studies. “But it's also good to know that past accomplishments and the happiness that you had -- looking back at your past -- carries you through these very last years.”

Survey: Many Americans Unaware Of Stroke-Certified Hospitals

(NAPSI)-Six out of 10 Americans do not know if stroke specialty hospitals exist in their communities, according to a new American Stroke Association survey. Yet stroke can happen to anyone at any time. Every year, 795,000 people have a stroke--that's one person every 40 seconds. More than 80 percent of the U.S. population (250 million residents) lives within an hour's drive of a Joint Commission−certified primary stroke center or state-designated stroke center, according to the American Stroke Association. More than 68 percent (211 million residents) lives within a 30-minute drive. However, in a survey of 1,000 people throughout the United States, 58 percent of respondents said they don't know if hospitals in their community are stroke certified--though 72 percent said they believe it's "very important" or "somewhat important" that they know where stroke-certified hospitals are located in their area. "Everyone should know the stroke warning signs and know which hospitals are better equipped to handle strokes," said Ralph Sacco, M.D., neurologist, presidentelect of the American Heart Association and chairman of neurology/professor of neurology, epidemiology and human genetics at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. "If you experience someone having a stroke, then 9-1-1 should be called immediately for urgent attention." Hospitals may earn certification as stroke specialty centers based on having

special staffing and processes in place to handle stroke emergencies. The amount of certified stroke centers has nearly doubled in the last five years. Today, there are more than 640 primary stroke centers certified by The Joint Commission--a private, nonprofit organization that provides certification programs for health care organizations. A stroke occurs when the blood flow to an area of the brain is interrupted. The resulting lack of oxygen and glucose can lead to the death of brain cells and brain damage. This can result in impaired speech, movement and/or memory. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and a leading cause of severe, long-term disability. Nearly three-quarters of all strokes occur in people over 65; however, nearly one-quarter of strokes occur in people under 65. "If certification is not feasible for rural or other underserved area hospitals, then we will explore linking them with primary stroke centers through telemedicine to increase patient access to stroke specialists and eliminate disparities in access to acute stroke care," Sacco said.

Creatively cut the fat: substitute with apples

TUESDAY, JUNE 1, 2010

(ARA) - Looking to eat better? Tried low-fat and reduced-sodium products, but they just don't taste the same? If you want to modify your diet without giving up the tastes you love, substituting natural ingredients, rather than modified versions of unhealthy ingredients, could do the trick.

By using these steps as a guide, you can also come up with your own healthy substitutions that you might think would be particularly flavorful. You never know, you might find yourself liking the new flavors more than those that resulted from using less healthy ingredients.

With a little ingenuity, you can find ways to work healthier alternatives into your diet that might lead to more satisfying eating. Take apples - the fruit can be used for much more than just a healthy snack or side item during lunch. Products made from apples, an excellent source of vitamin C and other nutrients, can easily be substituted for butter, sugar and other less healthy products.

Tree Top also offers the following healthy recipes that use apple products as substitution:

Tree Top, a cooperative of 1,000 grower-owners and producer of apple sauce, apple juice and a variety of other apple products, offers these suggestions for using apple products as substitutes. * Replace butter with apple sauce in baking recipes. This will cut the fat in a recipe by nearly 75 percent. Using apple sauce will create a moist, light cake or brownie batter that is lower in fat and higher in both vitamin C and fiber. * Marinate meat or fish in different varieties of apple juice to add extra flavoring without the extra sodium and substantial calories.

TERI-APPLE CHICKEN WINGS Ingredients: 1 cup apple sauce 1/3 cup soy sauce 1/4 cup salad oil 2 tablespoons molasses 2 teaspoons ground ginger 2 teaspoons dry mustard 1 tablespoons garlic powder 2 tablespoons orange marmalade 3 to 4 pounds chicken wings

* Freeze different varieties of apple juice in plastic cups to make frozen treats or in ice cube trays to zest up water and encourage its consumption.

Directions: Combine all ingredients, except wings if they will be served as appetizers. To disjoint, cut off small tip at joint and discard. Then cut at other joint, making two small drumstick looking pieces. Put chicken wings in a shallow pan and pour sauce over. Refrigerate, covered, four hours or overnight. Bake at 350 F for about one hour, or until meat is tender. Spoon the sauce over the top while cooking.

* Add more fruit and flavor to your diet with apple iced tea. Just replace half the water with apple juice instead.

Tree Top offers more ways to use fruit as a healthier alternative in cooking at www.TreeTop.com.

* Reduce the sugar used in many recipes by replacing white sugar with apple juice concentrate. Use 3/4 cup of concentrate for every cup of sugar.
