Commissioners agree to examine county boundaries B Y K ARISSA M INN

kminn@salisburypost.com

The Rowan County Board of Commissioners voted Monday to ask the N.C. Geodetic Survey Division for help in determining the boundary line between Rowan and Cabarrus counties. According to Rowan County Attorney Jay Dees, the Geographic Information System (GIS) departments of the two counties do not

agree on a consistent boundary line. “Also, we have bits and pieces of some survey work that’s been done that reflects yet a third location of the line between the two counties,” Dees said. “This is the first action we need to take to begin the process of trying to determine where the line is, and then whether Cabarrus and Rowan agree that’s where line should be.” He said the resolution to be ap-

proved by commissioners was the first step in determining where the boundary falls. Cabarrus and Rowan counties must then decide whether or not they agree on the line mapped by the state and make adjustments. The issue was brought forward, Dees said, by a property owner at the edge of the county who wants to develop that property. Rowan County recognizes a line that divides the property, so the county

doesn’t have total jurisdiction. According to Cabarrus County, though, the property lies within Rowan County and should be dealt with here. “When we determine where we think the line should be, there are obviously a lot of people that could be impacted by the change in recognizing a different line,” Dees said. “They may be voting for Cabarrus County Commissioners instead of Rowan County Commis-

sioners, or they might be in Rowan schools instead of Cabarrus schools.” He said the county needs to make the process “public information intensive” and said county staff members have already scheduled meetings with some impacted residents.

officer that he needed to check on his dogs.

County Commissioner Jon Barber will not face criminal charges in relation to allegations that he was drunk in his sixthgrade classroom at Southeast Middle School on May 19, the day before he resigned his teaching job. District Attorney Bill Kenerly said in a prepared statement Monday there were no criminal violations involving students and that Barber could not be “successfully prosecuted” for BARBER other crimes based on blood-alcohol test results obtained by the Rowan-Salisbury School System. In response to the news, Barber said, “I'm glad that the process has concluded itself, and I'm very relieved that they have conducted a very professional investigation.” Barber told the Post at the time he left the school early that day and told administrators he was resigning “to pursue other opportunities.” School system officials have said only that Barber resigned for personal reasons. He subsequently admitted to battling with alcoholism, but he has not publicly elaborated or changed his story about what happened that day at Southeast Middle. Multiple sources told the Post, however, that Barber was removed from his classroom by Southeast Principal Skip Kraft because of suspicion that he was drunk. Students were preparing to take end-of-grade tests when the incident occurred. In his statement Monday, Kenerly said Barber “was escorted from the premises of Southeast Middle School and subsequently resigned” his teaching job. Kenerly said an SBI investigation led him to conclude “there was no violation of the criminal law involving any student.” He went on to say the school system uses a device known as an Intoxilyzer 400 to test employees suspected of having alcohol in their systems while at work. That device — a handheld alcohol concentration tester that a person blows into — is not among those approved for use in the state’s justice system. “The results obtained through the use of this device are not admissible in the courts of North Carolina, and no law enforcement officer administered sobriety tests to Mr. Barber,” Kenerly wrote. “Under these circumstances it is my professional opinion that motor vehicle or other offenses could not be successfully prosecuted. Therefore criminal charges will not be filed.” Kenerly obtained a court order requiring the school system to turn over results of the blood-alcohol test administered to Barber on May 19. The court order prohib-

A public hearing for the proposed Rowan County brought out more than 150 supporters for the Rowan-Salisbury School System. Salisbury Attorney Carlyle Sherrill spoke in favor of RSSS.

Teachers, supporters voice their concern on county budget B Y K ARISSA M INN

kminn@salisburypost.com

Bright yellow-green shirts with black letters spelling “MEET HALFWAY” filled the county commissioner’s meeting room to overflowing Monday evening. About 150 people wore the shirts in support of Rowan-Salisbury Schools at the Board of Commissioners’ public hearing on the budget. The school system’s Parent-Teacher Association gave them away outside the county administration building, soon finding that they didn’t have enough shirts for the people who wanted them. The simply stated slogan is a request for commissioners to fund at

least half of Rowan-Salisbury Schools’ $3.3 million budget increase. The Board of Education would then match that amount from its fund balance. The hearing drew about 200 people, who filled the meeting and overflow rooms and spilled out into the hallway. Of the 34 people who spoke during Monday’s public hearing, 19 focused on public school funding. Administrators, teachers, parents and students shared with commissioners why they felt schools needed the board’s help. Patty Overcash, president of the Rowan-Salisbury Schools PTA Coun-

A Jake Alexander Boulevard business was destroyed by a fire early Monday. And the building’s owner ended up handcuffed and on the ground while trying to save his two dogs. Salisbury Auto Spa, a car detailing business at 1500 Jake Alexander Blvd., is a total loss, according to Terry Smith, city fire marshal. The business is located behind Jake Alexander Auto Sales. Smith, Salisbury Police officers and the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation were on the scene Monday trying to determine the cause of the fire.

He said police told his wife that his business, Jake Alexander Auto Sales at 1500 Jake Alexander Blvd., was on fire.

He also urged commissioners to look at central office staff and ask themselves whether all those positions are necessary. “In hard times, private companies often re-organize so that they can do more with fewer people and thus save money,” Wright said. “It’s time for the school board to do this and to reduce the administrative costs of running our schools.” Dr. Jim Emerson, chairman of the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education, said the school system will be facing a “huge funding cliff” when

He said he recently took his first vacation in five years on the advice of his counselor. Barber pleaded guilty to driving while impaired in 2008 after he was found in February of that year passed out in his car near the corner of Sherrills Ford and Long Branch roads. His blood-alcohol content at that time was .18, more than twice the legal limit. Barber was the leading vote-getter in the May Republican primary for county commissioner and has said he will continue his campaign for another term on the board.

Gig Hilton, president of Davidson County Broadcasting, submitted a conditional use permit Wednesday for the construction of a 1,200-foot broadcast tower. It would be located in Mount Ulla, on property owned by Richard L. and Dorcas Parker. In November 2006, commissioners voted to deny the Parkers a permit for a 1,350-foot broadcast tower on the property to serve Davidson County Broadcasting. Hilton appealed the county’s decision. In September 2007, a threejudge panel of the N.C. Court of Appeals upheld the denial, and so did the N.C. Supreme Court. During those proceedings, Rowan County was represented by Anthony Fox of the Parker Poe law firm. The board voted unanimously Monday to bring him in again, but Chairman Carl Ford requested that the county wait as long as possible to call on his services. “This gentleman charges almost $300 per hour, and we’ve got to be good stewards of taxpayers’ money,” Ford said.

He thanked them for speaking Monday and encouraged them to contact their state legislators next. Other budget topics brought up at Monday’s public hearing include: • The recommended hiring of a new inspections director. Local residents Thomas Baudoin, David Garneau and Wayne Bradshaw all spoke about difficulties they have encountered while dealing with the inspections department. Chris Bradshaw and Bryce Beard, both of Salisbury, said the inspections department is making progress toward becoming more business-friendly but could use more guidance in the form of a director. • The recommended privatization of the county’s airport maintenance services.

Commissioner Jon Barber said he thought it was important for the county to have consistent representation on the same issue. Commissioner Chad Mitchell repeated Ford’s request to delay calling on Fox, but agreed that outside legal counsel was important. “Regardless of whatever decision we eventually made, it was very beneficial for us to have outside counsel to guide us through this entire process and represent us,” said Commissioner Chad Mitchell. During Monday’s regular meeting, commissioners also: • Hired Darryl Blackwelder as the county’s new cooperative extension director. Blackwelder had been serving as interim director. • Recognized Kannapolis City Schools Superintendent Dr. Jo Anne Byerly, who will retire June 30. • Approved a change of address for 3180 E.

She said that if teaching positions are cut, class sizes will increase. “At China Grove Middle, we are a family,” Chilelli said. “I’m asking you to not break up our family, not reduce our family and not shift our family to other schools.” Concerned parents and teachers continued to speak about the importance of school funding for educating tomorrow’s leaders and giving struggling children hope for the future. Commissioners then addressed the public’s concerns at the end of the hearing, saying they would try their best to help the school system in whatever way they could. Commissioner Tina Hall and Chairman Carl Ford also pointed out that cuts to the schools were not coming from the county, but

federal stimulus money runs out after the next school year. If the state doesn’t increase its funding, the system will have to rely on its small fund balance and likely make large cuts of its own. “This is not the first year our schools have absorbed drastic cuts from the state,” Emerson said. “Because of those cuts, our district exhausted what we could cut and not affect the classroom and other direct services to the children, which is always our focus.” He said he knows that the county probably can’t come up with a $3.3 million increase, but urged the board to dip into its fund balance to provide half and the school board would do the same.

Landis residents band together to save Recreation Department BY SHAVONNE POTTS

spotts@salisburypost.com

LANDIS — A group of residents intent on saving the town Recreation Department have formed a league that will take over the ball programs. Group spokesman Lex Graham, who is also principal of Jackson Park Elementary School in Kannapolis, spoke Monday about the group’s objectives.

Once registration is complete and paperwork is finalized, the group will be called the Southern Rowan Sports League. The group is made up of local parents and people who want to see the ball programs continue. The town board had decided to completely eliminate the recreation program, but talk turned instead to reductions and reorganization. It was the second time during the past several years the

town considered shutting down the Recreation Department. Instead of putting an end to the department, the staff managed to cut the recreation budget by $116,383. Discussion about a league that would take over the programs, which will no longer be funded by the town, arose during one of the board’s budget sessions. Town residents stepped up and began the planning.

The league submitted an outline of duties it would assume, which include buying and providing all necessary equipment, securing team sponsors, establishing league schedules, adhering to the 10:30 p.m. light curfew and having all coaches and volunteers undergo background checks. The town staff would issue pool passes. The pool is a large portion of the recreation budget.

“What you gentleman are doing is what we envisioned and hoped would happen,” said Mayor Dennis Brown. Brown said he felt as though this was a worthwhile endeavor and thanked the league for taking on the project. He told the group the town would pay for the utilities if the group dragged the fields and drew the lines. Graham said now that the the group had approval from

the town it could look into liability insurance. Alderman Tony Hilton said this harkens to the days when the community had a stake in how the programs were run. “I’m glad we’re getting back to our roots,” he said. The board also approved the 2010-2011 budget, which stands at just more than $10.3 million.

mwineka@salisburypost.com

Three workers from Shaver Wood Products helped to extricate an injured driver from his burning tractor-trailer late Monday morning after it was hit by a westbound freight train. The driver, telling emergency personnel he hurt all over, was taken to Iredell Memorial Medical Center, and one of his rescuers, William Trull, also was taken to the hospital later for treatment of smoke inhalation. All three Shaver Wood Products employees, which included Marco Monrow and a man who asked not to be identified, received oxygen near the turned-over tractor-trailer. Shaver Wood Products is located at the Rowan-Iredell county line just off U.S. 70. The American Carriers tractor-trailer was hauling an empty container box as it exited Shaver Wood Products about 10:25 a.m. The locomotive pushed the tractor-trailer down a bank and onto its side, where the rig caught fire. The three Shaver Wood

Products employees had to make their way to the other side of the stopped freight train to reach the injured driver. “All of them said they were just doing what any human would do,” said John Sharp, supervisor for Rowan County Emergency Medical Services. Cleveland Community Fire Chief Kenny Payne said his department relied on a tanker and pumper to fight the fire. Firefighters’ biggest concern was the blaze reaching several of the tanker cars stopped on the tracks near the wreckage. Fire singed the grass and railroad crossing sign near the tracks, but was contained before getting to the tankers. “It could have been a lot worse,” Payne said. Wayside Fire Department responded with men and equipment, too. Payne said firefighters also were containing a diesel leak from the rig’s side-saddle fuel tank. Rowan and Iredell rescue squads were among the emergency units responding. The N.C. Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.

Granite Quarry passes budget, keeps current tax rate BY MARK WINEKA

mwineka@salisburypost.com

GRANITE QUARRY — The Board of Aldermen passed a $1.6 million budget Monday night that keeps the same tax rate. In his message to the board, Town Manager Dan Peters said the budget will purchase the necessary equipment for all departments, continue services to residents at the current level, cover inflation and contract increases, maintain staffing and provide benefits for a police officer being added through a COPS grant. The total budget for the 20102011 fiscal year, starting July 1, will

CONCORD — With commissioners’ modifications and some slight changes in place, the Cabarrus County budget for the 2011 fiscal year is on the agenda for the June 21 Board of Commissioners meeting. During Monday’s agenda work session, the three commissioners present discussed the modifications made since last month’s budget work sessions. Chairman Jay White said Robert Carruth was out of the county on business and Coy Privette was at home with an illness. A total of $75,590 has been cut from the budget since May, and some items have been reallocated. The $700,000 originally budgeted for potential merit pay raises has been slashed to $350,000. Capital improvements to Old Bethel School have been removed from the budget, freeing up $300,000. About $150,000 of that savings has been budgeted for a new roof on the library at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College’s south campus. The budget also includes a $250,000 allocation for retirement incentive funds and $65,000 has been earmarked as a contingency fund in case of jail overcrowding, which Cabarrus county manager John Day said was possible in the near term. Monday’s modifications bring the the proposed general fund to $194.6 million. The budget leaves the property tax unchanged at 63 cents per $100 assessed value. A public hearing will precede the commissioners’ discussion of the budget on June 21. The full text of the proposed budget is on display at Cabarrus County public libraries. It’s also available online at http://www.cabarruscounty.us/ Finance/preliminarybudget2011 .html.

be $1,623,966. The property tax remains at 33 cents per $100 valuation. For the owner of a $150,000 home, the town’s property tax translates to $495 a year, for example. Granite Quarry residents also pay $8 a month for garbage service. Water-sewer service is provided by Salisbury-Rowan Utilities, which has proposed a 5.57 percent increase for all of its residential customers. That would raise the average bill from $68.74 to $72.78 a month. Here are the Granite Quarry budget figures by department: • Police, $451,695;

• Fire, $277,433; • Administration, $357,518; • Maintenance, $121,192; • Parks and Recreation, $61,834; • Environmental, $156,500 for solid waste; recycling, $10,000; and street lights, $31,500; • Projects, $118,300, including $115,000 for the Brookwood Drive culvert; East Rowan Express, $3,000; and Rowan Reads, $300; • Governing body, $11,416. Granite Quarry has a total property valuation of roughly $193 million and vehicle valuation of $22 million. A penny on the tax rate raises $20,855. The town is expecting revenue

reductions on both property and vehicle tax collections compared to 2009-2010. Peters projects property tax revenues of $617,793, down from the $626,755 budgeted during the current fiscal year. Vehicle tax revenues are expected to be $70,425, down from $84,506. But sales tax revenues are projected to increase to $320,400, up from $310,500. Peters said the budget reflects a considerable increase in healthcare costs for employees. The town pays for insurance coverage through a N.C. League of Munici-

Fire damages Kannapolis structure KANNAPOLIS — Police have joined in the investigation of a fire that heavily damaged a commercial structure off South Main Street. The fire occurred around 11 p.m. Saturday in a metal building at 1221 Lee Ave. The building had previously housed a party rental business. Randall Faggart with the Kannapolis Fire Department said the damage was to the interior and roof area. No one was in the building when the fire occurred. Faggart said the cause hasn’t been determined. Investigators from the fire department, the insurance company and Kannapolis Police are working the case. Faggart said it’s unclear whether the building can be repaired. That will depend on a structural engineer. Several area fire departments assisted Kannapolis including Concord, Landis, Odell, Enochville and China Grove.

The city will dedicate a marker at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday commemorating the founding of the Salisbury Rotary Club 90 years ago this month. The Salisbury Public Art Committee is installing the marker on the Innes Street facade of the Plaza, formerly the Wallace Building, where the club’s first formal meeting was held June 15, 1920. The marker will be part of the city’s History and Art Trail. Rotarians will meet for lunch at City Hall first and ride the trolley to the Plaza for the dedication. Barbara Perry will represent the History and Art Trail at the ceremony and club member Ed Clement will share the history of Rotary. The club formed in response to the need for a new high school in Salisbury. Twenty-two men formed the club and promoted a $500,000 bond issue to build Salisbury High School. In 1925, the club led the drive to raise $120,000 toward the endowment needed to ensure Catawba College’s relocation from Newton to Salisbury. The club has continued to emphasize education, giving $1,000 scholarships to 23 graduating high school seniors this spring. Dianne Scott is president of the Salisbury Rotary Club.

KANNAPOLIS — Mrs. Jeanne Craft Phillips, 88, of Kannapolis, passed away on June 6, 2010, at her home after seven months of illness. She was born Feb. 11, 1922, the daughter of the late Mildred Uzzle Craft and Harry Charles Craft, Sr. of Wilmington. She met her husband of 51 years in Wilmington on a blind date Aug. 9, 1942, and married Isaac Vernell Phillips, Jr. on Dec. 25 1942. Vernell Phillips preceded her in death on May 26, 1993. Two daughters were born of the marriage, Millie Phillips Fink of Concord and Jeanne Harriet Quinn, who died October 16, 1994. She was preceded in death by a brother, Harry Charles Craft, Jr. of Wilmington, on Oct. 21, 2003, and is survived by brothers James E. Craft and wife Jean of Wilmington, Robert C. Craft and wife Doris of Westerville, Ohio. Also surviving are numerous nieces and nephews and her adopted granddaughter and friend, Tonya Pendergrass. Mrs. Phillips was a buyer for Belk children's wear in Wilmington, manager and Buyer for Dell's in Kannapolis, and taught needlepoint, knitting and crocheting at Twin Oaks Needlecraft. She enjoyed many years of teaching Sunday School in her church, Trinity United Methodist Church. Her church family was very important to her and as her health prohibited her from attending, she communicated via phone and card ministry and her outlook on life was pleasant in what she was able to do. There was one special friend who she called each morning, without fail, just to tell her that she loved her and hoped that she had a good day. Fran Black Holland was that special friend. On one occasion, Jeanne had fallen and she was transported to the hospital by ambulance. Once settled in the emergency room, while enduring severe pain, she insisted that her daughter Millie find phone reception and call her dear friend Fran and let her know what was going on and that she would call later in the day. That is a dedicated friend. We thank Fran for her friendship and prayers through the years and her beautiful daughter, Janet Ward Black and husband Gerard Davidson. A special thanks to Dr. George C. Monroe, III, Hospice and Palliative Care of Cabarrus County and her nurses, Tiffany Kee, Susan Boger, Brenda Kee and Sylvia Blackmon, for their love and devotion. Service: Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 9 at Trinity United Methodist Church with entombment following at Carolina Memorial Park. Officiating will be the Rev.

CABARRUS FROM 3A

In other business, commissioners voted 3-to-0 to table Forest Park Crossing, LLC’s request for a Reservation of Capacity certificate for a proposed apartment project. The Forest Park Crossing low-income housing development was the subject of debate in Kannapolis last month. On May 10, the Kannapolis City Council denied a request by Douglas Development for a $224,450 loan to help construct the 56-unit complex. According to county planner Kassie Watts, the complex is estimated to bring 15 students into local schools. Under the county’s Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance, Douglas Development would be required to build the project in phases — no more than six apartments this year, no more than 11 a year for the next four years and no more than six in 2015. Instead, the developer is asking Cabarrus County for permission to pay APFO fees and apply for permits all at once instead of in phases. According to the developer, the stimulus funds being used to help construct the apartments require that the entire apartment complex be permitted and constructed at once. Developers had requested to have the matter heard June 21. But Commissioner Liz Poole said she wanted more time to review what Kannapolis officials had said. She also said she wanted Carruth and Privette to have time to hear about the matter. The request will be heard again during the July 6 work session. Commissioners voted to hear discussion of new locations for county departments on June 21. The Board of Elections and several other departments may be relocated as a cost-saving measure. Commissioners have discussed completing the top floor of the new Sheriff’s Administration Building alongside other proposals, including a possible lease-to-own plan involving the old Cabarrus Creamery building.

Commissioner Grace Mynatt said she preferred the latter option. “I’m not in favor of the seventh floor due to the accessibility and parking issues,� Mynatt said. Since the potential relocation was first announced, people in the community

have said the seventh floor location might make early voting difficult for the elderly or those with disabilities. Other alternatives, such as using the rotunda of the county’s office building as a voting site, were also discussed.

The resolution also says fiber-optic cable to the home, as under way in Salisbury, “solves bandwidth and capacity and enhances economic growth to the community,� while the current infrastructure of DSL and cable networks “cannot offer the speed required to remain competitive in a digital economy.� The board presented retired Police Chief Clyde Adams Jr. with his sidearm and a plaque of appreciation with his badge imbedded in the wood at top. Adams retired June 1 after 19 years as chief.

Peters agreed with Mayor Mary Ponds that it may be time to investigate the town’s participation in a health program aimed at reducing the town’s healthcare insurance rates. In another matter Monday night, aldermen discussed a new solid waste contract with representatives of the three lowest bidders: Alexander Waste Systems, Crash Morri-

service, length of terms and fuel charges. “This is a very difficult decision,� Ponds said. Alderman Jake Fisher said he would like another month to review the proposals, and the other board members agreed, delaying a decision until July. In other items, the board passed a resolution opposing Senate Bill 1209 and supporting the city of Salisbury’s Fiber-to-the-Home cable project. The resolution says the bill, by prohibiting other municipalities from getting into the cable business, “will leave behind many small communities without adequate high-speed Internet infrastructure in the new global information economy.�

Mayor Pro Tem Bill Feather quizzed the waste collectors about the number of trucks they had, the age of equipment, how many trucks would be used to cover the town’s collection day and how they address holidays.

4 transported to Rowan Regional after vehicle accident

At least four people were taken to the hospital Monday evening after an accident on Mooresville Road involving several vehicles. None of those involved suffered serious injuries, according to emergency radio communications. The accident on Mooresville Road near Sherill’s Ford Road occurred when a car rear-ended another and pushed that vehicle into a third vehicle. Initial reports indicated as many as four vehicles were involved. Ambulances took at least four people to Rowan Regional Medical Center. Two were children ages 10 and 12. The wreck backed up traffic around 6 p.m. as first responders closed roads to assist the people involved.

The only person who spoke during the public hearing was resident Nadine Cherry, asking that the town continue furloughs with one employee taking a day off once a month until all have had a day off. She also asked the board to reconsider its decision to allow the police department to hire an additional officer. Police Chief Brian McCoy previously requested to fill vacancies, but board members opted not to fill positions in any department. A few of the highlights of the budget sessions included contracting out the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pool operations, reorganizing the Recreation Department and contracting out garbage pickup services. Town staff looked into a company maintaining the town pool at a cost of about $30,900 a year, which is about $16,100 less than it cost the town during the previous fiscal year. A much talked about matter was contracting out the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garbage pickup service. The idea was first discussed at the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s March planning retreat. The board debated the perks of the contracting its garbage, but decided to keep services inhouse. The town will continue to offer its own sanitation services at no additional cost to residents. The board did not increase its taxes, instead the tax rate will remain at 40 cents per $100 of assessed value. The budget also includes a convenience fee of $3 per online credit card transaction and the establishment of fishing permits at Lake Corriher. The permits are expected bring in an additional $15,000 annually. Town Finance Officer Ginger Gibson said the board should see an additional savings once the staff chooses a new health care provider. The town currently receives insurance through the League of Municipalities, which uses Cigna as its provider. The board offered three quotes from Blue Cross Blue Shield, WellPath and UnitedHealthcare. There should be at least $100,000 in savings once the town switches providers. The board will meet at 7 p.m. July 6 for its regular meeting because of the July 4 holiday.

RALEIGH (AP) — The Senate — as expected — has rejected the House’s version of North Carolina’s state government budget for next year, setting up negotiations to find a compromise for competing plans. The Senate voted unanimously Monday night against the $18.9 billion spending plan the House approved late last week. The Senate approved its own $19 billion plan three weeks ago. The formal vote means the two chambers will negotiate differences and create a final plan and get it to Gov. Beverly Perdue to sign before July 1. Senate and House Democrats differ greatly on how to fund the University of North Carolina system next year. They also have differences on tax breaks for small businesses and the use of lottery money for the public schools.

White powder found in envelope at the Capitol RALEIGH (AP) — White powder was discovered in an envelope at North Carolina’s old Capitol building, leading to an evacuation. Gov. Beverly Perdue’s spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson said an administrative assistant to Chief of Staff Britt Cobb opened the envelope shortly before 3 p.m. Monday. Police and Perdue’s staff asked visitors to leave the 170-year-old building, which includes offices for Perdue and the old House and Senate chambers. A hazardous materials team arrived to investigate the envelope. Two workers who handled the letter also were being checked out. Perdue was in the old House chamber when the envelope was found, signing legislation requiring insurance companies to cover the cost of hearing aids for children. Pearson said she knew of no threats associated with the envelope.

Indiana’s public employee pension fund is taking a similar job in North Carolina. North Carolina state Treasurer Janet Cowell announced Monday that Shawn Wischmeier (WISH’-my-er) has been hired as chief investment officer of North Carolina’s retirement systems. He succeeds Patricia Gerrick, who was fired in August after five years on the job. Wischmeier will make a base salary of $320,000. The post is one of the highest paid in state government. He previously worked for Eli Lilly and Co. before going to work on Indiana’s state pension fund. North Carolina’s $68 billion retirement plan covers more than 820,000 people. Cowell wouldn’t disclose why she fired Gerrick, who used to work at Indiana’s pension fund, too.

Lightning kills Tenn. woman before fiance proposed ASHEVILLE (AP) — A Tennessee man says he planned to propose to his girlfriend along a North Carolina hiking trail when she was struck and killed by lightning. Thirty-year-old Richard Butler of Knoxville tells the Asheville Citizen Times that he took Bethany Lott to Max Patch Bald, near Asheville. He says he wanted his 25year-old girlfriend to think the two were on a hike but that he had a ring in his pocket and was planning to ask her to marry him. Heavy rain let up as the two walked toward the bald,

Gov. Perdue invites kids to hearing-aid bill signing RALEIGH (AP) — Children who lobbied the General Assembly to require North Carolina health insurers to cover hearing aids for young people will celebrate their legislative victory with Gov. Beverly Perdue. Perdue planned to sign the legislation Monday afternoon in her office in a public ceremony. The legislature gave final approval May 26 to a bill mandating insurers pay up to $2,500 per ear for hearing aids every three years for children up to 21 years of age. Third-grader Collin Tastet (TASS’-tet) of Greensboro led the lobbying effort and will attend the signing. He has worn hearing aids since he was a baby.

Wounded veterans in N.C. to discuss career program FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — Veterans, councilors and Army officials are meeting in North Carolina to discuss ways to expand a careers program for severely wounded veterans. The three-day conference in Fayetteville started Monday and will include a veterans round-table where they can share ideas about the Army Wounded Warrior Careers Program. The program was started two years ago by the National Organization on Disability. The program helps wounded service members transition into civilian careers. The program already operates in Texas, Colorado and North Carolina. The National Organization on Disability hopes to expand the program to nearly 10 more states in the coming years.

SIU to offer aviation course at N.C. college CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) — Students at a college in the state that’s considered the birthplace of flight soon will be able to get a bachelor’s degree from Southern

Illinois University in aviation management. As part of the deal with North Carolina’s Craven Community College, students first get an associate degree in aviation systems technologies there, then transfer into Southern’s aviation management program. The classes will be taught on weekends. Faculty from Southern will continue to teach upperlevel courses at the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station at Cherry Point, near the community college’s Havelock campus. The college’s main campus is about 30 minutes away in New Bern.

Cleanup to close 3 miles of Blue Ridge Parkway MOUNT PISGAH (AP) — A three-mile stretch of the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina will be closed for a couple of days while debris is removed from ice storms earlier this year. The road will be closed between miles 405 and 408 west of Asheville on Wednesday and Thursday. Workers are trimming trees and removing debris from winter storms. The road is closed longterm between miles 399 and 405 because of rock slide repairs.

RALEIGH (AP) — The security firm formerly known as Blackwater is looking for new ownership, announcing Monday it is pursuing a sale of the company that became renowned and reviled for its involvement with the U.S. government in Iraq and elsewhere. The Moyock, N.C.-based company now called Xe Services announced its decision in a brief statement that gave few details. “Xe’s new management team has made significant changes and improvements to the company over the last 15 months, which have enabled the company to better serve the U.S. government and other customers, and will deliver additional value to a purchaser,” the statement said. Owner and founder Erik Prince said selling the company is a difficult decision, but constant criticism of Xe helped him make up his mind. “Performance doesn’t matter in Washington, just politics,” Prince said in a further statement. The private company became famous as Blackwater, which provided guards and services to the U.S. government in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. It became one of the most respected defense contractors in the world, but

also attracted sharp criticism over its role in those missions. It has been trying to rehabilitate its image since a 2007 shooting in Baghdad that killed 17 people, outraged the Iraqi government and led to federal charges against several Blackwater guards. The accusations later were thrown out of court after a judge found prosecutors mishandled evidence. In March, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin suggested the Pentagon should consider banning Xe from a $1 billion deal to train Afghan police. The Michigan Democrat said he thought the company’s involvement was hindering the U.S. mission in Afghanistan. Prince, who founded the company in 1997 along with former colleagues from the Navy SEALs, said he does not anticipate having any role in Xe after the sale. The process of finding a buyer and completing the deal is expected to take several months, according to spokeswoman Stacy DeLuke. The announcement comes less than three months after Xe sold its aviation division for $200 million to Wood Dale, Ill.-based AAR Corp in a bid to strengthen Xe’s balance sheet.

Nurse faces murder charge in nursing home death CHAPEL HILL (AP) — A nurse has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of a patient at a North Carolina nursing home. WRAL-TV reported Monday that Angela Almore of Cary was also charged with six counts of patient abuse. She is being held on a $500,000 bond. It wasn’t immediately known if she has a lawyer. Almore is charged in the February death of 84-year-old Rachel Holliday, an Alzheimer’s patient at The Britthaven of Chapel Hill. Tests at the time found that nine Alzheimer’s patients were given painkillers. Holliday and several others weren’t supposed to be receiving pain medication. A medical examiner’s report concluded Holliday died of pneumonia, but that morphine was a contributing factor.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Google representatives on Monday said the search engine company has not broken any laws with the collection of data for its mapping service, after Connecticut’s attorney general pressed the company to “come clean with the American public.” Authorities fear the information gathered for Google’s Street View service, which provides pictures of neighborhoods, may violate privacy laws. Last month, Google acknowledged it had mistakenly collected data over public Wi-Fi networks in more than 30 countries. Police in Germany and Australia already have launched their own investigations into the matter. “As we have said before, this was a mistake,” said a Google spokeswoman in an email statement to the Associated Press. “Google did nothing illegal and we are working with the relevant authorities to answer their questions and concerns.” The attorneys general of Connecticut and Missouri have both sent letters to Google executives asking for clarification on the information collected for Street View. Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal held a press conference Monday urging the search engine company to reveal whether it had illegally collected data from state personal and business wireless computer networks. “People have legitimate expectations that private in-

Two other victims, 32year-old Maysel Figueroa and 47-year-old Lavina Fonseca, lived next door to each other in Hialeah. People inside Fonseca’s home refused to answer the door, and a neighbor said Figueroa had lived in her small cottage for only about six months. Regular customers in the city, which has a large CubanAmerican population, gathered in shock outside the restaurant on Monday. “They are good people,” said Valentin Perez, 52, who visits the restaurant for his Cuban coffee every morning. Octavio Guzman, another customer, said the restaurant workers are always generous with those who can’t afford a meal. “You tell anyone here, ’I’m hungry and I don’t have money,’ and they give it to you,” Guzman said.

Hernandez’s agent, Mike Maulini, told the Spanish-language newspaper El Nuevo Herald that the family does not know what caused Regalado to shoot seven women. “This has taken everyone by surprise,” Maulini said.

Since he arrived he has tried not to depend on his brother and do his own work,” Maulini. In a statement, Hernan-

A person who answered the phone identified himself only as a family friend and said the family didn’t want to talk.

Hurry!” said one terrified woman in Spanish to the dispatcher. “That man killed them.” A male caller in Spanish is heard on another recording at 10:11 p.m. breathing rapidly and telling the dispatcher, “He entered the Yoyito Restaurant and began shooting like crazy.” He tells the dispatcher that the man and a woman had argued before the shooting started. “They were arguing out in front of the restaurant ... he killed the girl,” the man says. A spokeswoman for Jackson Memorial Hospital declined to release any information about the three women being treated there because all had requested privacy. No contact information for one survivor, Yasmine Dominguez, could be found. There was no answer at the Hialeah Gardens mobile home of the third, 55-year-old Mayra Delacaridad.

HIALEAH, Fla. (AP) — A gunman shot and killed his wife outside a South Florida restaurant where she worked, then targeted women inside and killed three others before committing suicide, police said Monday. Police said 38-year-old Gerardo Regalado bypassed at least two men when he fired at the women inside. Three women were hospitalized in critical condition, Hialeah police Detective Eddie Rodriguez said. “He went straight for the women,” Rodriguez said. Regalado is the half brother of former baseball star Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez. The shooting began Sunday night in a parking lot outside the Yoyito Restaurant in Hialeah, where Regalado of Coral Gables was seen arguing with Liazan Molina, Rodriguez said. According to Florida marriage records, the couple married in 2007. According to police, Regalado shot and killed Molina, 24, then entered the restaurant and fired on six women inside. One employee called her brother after the shooting, saying she had been shot and was bleeding. Felix Fuentes said his sister, Ivet Coronado, told him to “please call 911.” He said the 36-year-old woman was recovering Monday from surgery for gunshot wounds to her chest and one of her

Perfect time for fishing on High Rock Fishing on High Rock Lake has been excellent over the past week. Water levels remain near full with the water generally clear in most areas. Largemouth bass have been hungry and hitting great. At the recent FLW tournament, more than 100 boaters participated, with 58 fishermen bringing in a full five-fish limit. They weighed in a total of just over 1,000 pounds of largemouth bass. The hot baits reported were jigs on structure, with crank baits a close second. Places to try for a lunker largemouth bass include the Bringle Ferry Road bridge near Tamarac Marina, focusing on the four corners of the rip-rap rocks and also working the bridge pilings. On Abbott’s Creek, try the submerged road bed that runs parallel to N.C. 8. The concrete support pillars are located in 25 feet of water marked by a danger buoy in the center of the channel. On Flat Swamp Creek, work the submerged rocky points in the “S” curve during the day. Deep diving crank baits are a good choice there. In Panther Creek, early mornings are finding some top water action on the right side as you enter the mouth of the creek. Look toward the small bushy islands and focus on the points, using Pop-R’s or other stick baits. In Crane Creek at the Goodman Lake Road bridge, work the danger buoy that is marking a large rock pile. Jigs and lizards are producing good fish on the dropoff and rocky structure. For those bass fishermen who would like to know of a good spot that is hard to find unless shown by someone in the “know,” try the following GPS coordinates. N 35 37.541 W 80 16.327 This location has a large rock pile, 25 feet long, 25 feet wide, 4 feet tall. There are large rocks, several stumps near and around open water toward the channel. With a very large stump toward the cove point, this is an excellent crank bait location. Crappie have been hitting well lakewide. Good-sized fish are schooled up and holding off dropoffs and deep water structure. Minnows are the standby bait although a variety of jigs are working well also. Fish can be caught throughout the day if you can brave the heat, but mornings and evenings are usually best. Striped bass continue to hit regularly in main channel portions of High Rock Lake. Fish ranging from 5 to 12 pounds are common. Most fishermen are trolling buck tailed jigs on a double drop rig with a long leader. Catfish are pulling the string of most anyone who wants to give them a try. Channels weighing up to 10 pounds are common with blue cats ranging over 10 pounds seen regularly. Flathead catfish are very active, with catches over 20 pounds seen weekly.

A new pier from closed bridge The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has opened the Chowan River Bridge Access Area, a fishing access area and renovated boat ramp off the closed Chowan River Bridge. The project was funded from sales of the Coastal Recreational Fishing License. The site, off N.C. 17 in Chowan County, features fixed and floating docks, new concrete apron, new ramps, bulkhead and an improved, paved parking lot. The old highway bridge, which has been closed since 1999, has been repurposed as a fishing pier, with a restroom building and vending area. “The accessible fishing area and renovated boating access area at the Chowan River Bridge provide boaters and anglers with quality access to a very popular waterway,” said Erik Christofferson, chief of the Division of Engineering services. “We are thrilled to have received the CRFL funding to make this project happen, which increases opportunities for anglers and recreational boaters.”

Boating classes Upcoming boating education classes in Rowan County that will be instructed by N.C. Wildlife Officers include: July 10 and Aug. 1 at the Rowan County Rescue Squad, 1140 Julian Road. These are open to the public and free of charge. For more information, go to www.ncwildlife.org and click boating education or call 919-707-0031. You can e-mail Sgt. Anthony Sharum of the N.C. Wildlife Resources at huntfishguy66@aol.com.

Chance Mako, son of Chris and Martie Mako, caught bass ranging from 11⁄2 pounds up to 6 pounds, while fishing with his grandfather, Ronnie Marsh, in a private pond.

Woodleaf man in on outdoorsman challenge

SUBMITTED PHOTO

Shalee Athey, 11, caught a 40-pound black drum the last weekend of May on a family fishing trip to Chesapeake Bay, Va. She also caught two sharks and some flounder on her first trip to the Chesapeake Bay with her parents, Ernie and Denise Athey of Salisbury. The black drum was caught near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel in a 28-foot Grady White boat. ‘Shalee loves the outdoors and enjoys hunting and fishing,’ her mother said in an e-mail to the Post.

Fishing with Capt. Gus

Lake Norman boating, fishing questions answered Everyone seems to have questions related to boating and fishing on Lake Norman. Some of the most frequently asked questions are addressed below. • Up north, we had a closed season on bass fishing. What are the regulations on Lake Norman? Lake Norman does not have a closed fishing season. Anglers can fish year round for any species, except grass carp. • I do not have a boat. Where can I fish from the shore on Lake Norman? Public fishing is allowed at the McGuire Nuclear Plant off N.C. 73, the Marshall Steam Plant off N.C. 150 and at the Lake Norman State Park, near Troutman. • What am I likely to catch on Lake Norman? Largemouth bass, spotted bass, stripers, catfish, white perch, carp, crappie and bream. • How big are the fish in Lake Norman? Sizes vary. An 85-pound state record blue catfish was caught a few years ago. There are some who suspect that a blue cat weighing more than 100 pounds is lurking near the dam. Stripers average 5 to 6 pounds. In the past, 20- and 30-pounders were caught. The state record, a 6 pound, 5-ounce spotted bass was caught in Lake Norman. • Can I catch trout, walleye and white bass? High summer water temperatures, combined with low

levels of dissolved oxygen, make it all but impossible for trout and walleye to survive in Lake Norman. White bass used to be plentiful, but have practically disappeared in recent years. • Is fishing better above the N.C. 150 Bridge? Not necessarily. There are times when Ramsey, Reed, Mountain and Hagers creeks produce a lot of fish. Also, both hot water discharges are located south of the N.C. 150 Bridge. Many people fish the north end of the lake, not because there are more fish, but because there is less open water and it’s easier to fish on windy days. • When is the best time to fish? As a rule, fish bite best early in the morning and again just before dark. However, there are many occasions when fish feed aggressively throughout the day. Spring is a preferred time because fish are hungry and in shallow water. Night fishing is also popular in the summer. Since stripers like cold water, winter is a good time to fish for them. • I thought striped bass were a saltwater fish? They are, but they swim up freshwater rivers to spawn. Stripers are able to adapt and can live in freshwater lakes when conditions are right. Most landlocked striped bass, like those on Lake Norman, are stocked by wildlife agencies • Who needs a fishing li-

cense? Anyone 16 and over who fishes in public waters is required to have a valid fishing license. • Where can I get a North Carolina fishing license? Licenses can be purchased at most area bait shops and at department stores that sell fishing tackle. They are also available at www.ncwildlife. org, by phone at 888-248-6834, or by mail at N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, 1751 Varsity Drive, Raleigh, N.C. 27606. • How do I get help in an emergency if my boat is in a dead cell phone area? The old stand-by is to wave your arms, a flag, shirt, etc. to a passing vessel. Another option is to install a marine band VHF radio. Channel 16 is monitored by the Lake Patrol, Coast Guard Auxiliary, N.C. Wildlife Officers and other boaters equipped with VHF radios. • I see signs and buoys that say “No Wake.” How fast can a boat go in a “No Wake” zone? “No wake” means, “No Wake.” If you can see a wake behind the boat, you are going too fast. Wakes might vary with the way the boat is loaded. Some boats might produce a wake traveling at only a few miles per hour. 

Frankie Wells of Woodleaf has qualified to compete in Field & Stream’s Total Outdoorsman Challenge Regional Championship on Saturday at the Country Music Association Festival in Nashville. The top three finishers in Nashville will advance to the Total Outdoorsman’s final in Springfield, Mo., Sept. 9-11. In the finals, 16 of the nation’s top outdoorsmen will go head-to-head in seven outdoor skill challenges that will determine the winner. Events are fly-fishing, bass fishing, rifle, shotgun, endurance, archery and ATV handling. The winner will be declared Field & Stream’s Total Outdoorsman Champion and win $25,000 and a trip to the 2010 CMA Awards. “Total outdoorsmen have been training for this their whole lives,” said Anthony Licata, editor of Field & Stream. “After the money and great prize package, the real reward for Total Outdoorsmen competitors is the chance to show their passion and dedication for hunting, fishing and the outdoors.” Now in its seventh year, the Field & Stream Total Outdoorsman Challenge presented by Mobil 1 is widely celebrated as the country’s premier competition for sportsmen. Competitors in the Nashville event garnered their invitation to the regional competition after competing in local qualifier events held at Bass Pro Shops around the country. In April, thousands of outdoorsmen vied for the chance to compete at one of the four regional qualifying events held this June. Of those, only 200 scored well enough to continue on, representing the best of the best outdoorsmen in the country. Those who were unable to attend a local qualifier event still have a shot at going to the Championship: Field & Stream is accepting submissions through July 5 for a sole “wildcard” competitor from online entries at www.totaloutdoorsmanchallenge.com.

Wildlife in North Carolina magazine looking for your best outdoors photos RALEIGH — Wildlife in North Carolina magazine is welcomes entries for its sixth annual nature and wildlife photo competition. “Last year, we received more than 8,800 entries — by far our most ever, and almost too many for our staff to handle,” said Greg Jenkins, editor of the national-award-winning monthly. “In response, we are reducing the number of photos that an individual can enter in a single category from three to two.” Founding partner, the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences, returns as a cosponsor, as does the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation. Great Outdoor Provision Co. returns as a corporate sponsor. Another important co-sponsor returning for the second year is UNCTV, with entertaining and educational programming about the state’s wonderful natural resources. “These sponsors are valuable resources on so many levels,” Jenkins said. “The museum is a fantastic place to learn about the state’s wildlife and habitats. Our outstanding state parks are ideal places for photography, and park rangers can give photographers expert advice on the best subjects and the best times and places to get that ideal image.” All winners will be published in the January 2011 issue of Wildlife in North Carolina magazine, with the grand prize appearing as the cover illustration. Thanks to exhibition sponsor, JW Photo Labs of Raleigh, the winners will be exhibited at the Museum of Natural Sciences and at other science museums and wildlife education centers across the state in 2011. The deadline for entry is Sept. 1. Rules, more information and entry forms are available at www.ncwildlife.org. Since 1947, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission has been dedicated to the conservation and sustainability of the state's fish and wildlife resources through research, scientific management, wise use, and public input.

Paternity shock haunts father mother had the affair, and I am very curious just what kind of man my biological father was. I am debating whether I should tell my grown children about this. Do I have an obligation to tell my children? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Shocked Dear Shocked: You have an obligation to live an authentic life. Your children deserve to know the basic truth about you (and about their own genetic history) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even if the truth presents challenges youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sure how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll handle. Your children also deserve to know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in your life, certainly if it is causing you ongoing angst. They may assist you in trying to track down other biological family members, if you choose to do this (it should be your choice to make). This journey could lead all of you in fascinating directions. A therapist could help guide you through this. You should receive ongoing support. Dear Amy: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost vacation time again, and I would like your opinion on sleeping arrangements at a resort. A two-bedroom unit is being rented. Each room has a queensize bed. Is it appropriate for a 16year-old girl and her 14-yearold brother to share a bed, especially when other arrangements are possible? I feel that the daughter should share a bed with her mother, and the son with his father. The parents of these children feel that it is OK for their teenagers to share a bed for a week.

Dear Concerned: I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea for opposite gender teenagers to share a bed. At 14 and 16, these kids are in a phase where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still figuring out who they are; they deserve a measure of privacy while they do so. Most hotels are happy to bring a rollaway bed into a room for a small fee each night. That would certainly be my solution. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say what your relationship to this family is, but this issue falls pretty squarely into the â&#x20AC;&#x153;none of your businessâ&#x20AC;? category. Unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asked to weigh in, you should let this family figure out its own sleeping arrangements. Dear Amy: When my wife and I go out to dinner with our two daughters, I always pay the bill and usually leave a 15 percent tip. My daughters get really upset and say I should leave at least 20 percent. I do not think my daughters should tell me how much tip to leave when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m paying. What do you think? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Richard Dear Richard: I agree with your daughters and with you. You should leave 20 percent. Tell your daughters they should take their old man to dinner once in a while and show him how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done. TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

There are currently 3.6 billion credit cards in circulation. Every few years, these cards expire and are replaced by new, active cards. Add all those spent gift cards that are destined for the landfill and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking MARY about one HUNT big pile of worthless plastic. I laughed when I read a recent article at CreditCards.com on imaginative ways to use an old credit card for fun and recycling joy. I got some great ideas, too. I am going to try some of these, and I bet you will want to, as well. â&#x20AC;˘ iPhone stand. What iPhone owner doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a right and proper stand for the device? After all, you want your hands free to eat popcorn when you decide to watch a full-length movie on it. All you need are a couple of expired credit cards and a pair of scissors to make a sturdy stand. The best part is this stand can be stored flat for easy traveling, which makes it con-

venient for entertaining children on long crosscountry flights. â&#x20AC;˘ Battery cover. You know that little flat piece of plastic that covers the battery on your camera, phone or remote control? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to keep the battery protected, clean and dry. But often that little cover slips away and gets lost. I have no idea where it goes, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a common problem. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry. You easily can craft a replacement cover from an old credit card. Full satisfaction guaranteed! â&#x20AC;˘ Earrings. This is just way too funny â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and amazingly beautiful! I think I need a pair of credit card earrings. Simply cut out the shape you desire, and glue the pieces back to back so both sides are the â&#x20AC;&#x153;rightâ&#x20AC;? side. Add ear wires and jump rings and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re set. Decorative gift cards make especially good-looking earrings. â&#x20AC;˘ Cord organizer. If the cords from your computer, scanner, printer, mouse, lamp and other electronic devices are all jumbled up under your desk, take heart. You can create a cable organizer from an old credit card! Simply punch

holes along one of the long sides with a hole puncher. Then cut from the edge into each hole so you can slip the problem cables into the card. This will keep the cords straight. If you have many cables, simply glue several cards together. â&#x20AC;˘ Guitar picks. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really expensive, but musicians will tell you that guitar picks disappear, and when you need one, you usually donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have time to run to the music store to pick one up. An old, expired credit card is made of the perfect material to make a new one. All you need is a Sharpie and scissors. Trace the shape, and cut it out. Let the jam session begin.

Dear Amy: My widowed mother passed away some time ago when she was in her mid90s. About two years before she died, when I was in my mid60s, she confided in me that she had an affair many years ago with a man who left this country shortly thereafter, and that he was my ASK biological faAMY ther. No one else knew of the affair, including her husband (my father) who I always assumed was my biological father. This left me in a complete state of shock. Apparently my mother felt it was important that I knew of this before she died. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still not sure whether I am better off knowing it. The father who raised me was a very poor husband and father, and a terrible role model. He was a heavy smoker and an alcoholic, and he believed that if a man provided basic food, shelter and clothing, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all it took to be a good father and husband. He never bought my mother a gift or a card or took her out to dinner, nor did he ever buy my sisters or me a present or play with us. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a bad person, but I think he just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know any better. I strived to be the opposite. In reality, when I became an adult, I actually ended up liking the guy. I can understand why my

FEDERAL LEGISLATION PROPOSED

Raise age limit for drivers? I

s it time to adopt a one-size-fits-all approach to licensing young drivers? Some in Congress think so. Senate and House proposals would raise the minimum unrestricted driving age to 18 and require all states to follow the same licensing guidelines or risk losing federal road funds. Proponents say this would reduce teen highway deaths, while imposing uniformity on regulations that vary from state to state. Reducing teen accidents is an urgent goal. In 2008, 2,684 drivers aged 16 to 20 died in traffic accidents nationwide, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It’s hard to dispute the argument that raising the age limit to 18 would almost certainly reduce that toll — just as raising the age limit to 19 or 21 would decrease it even more. But Congress should delay heading down this road, lest it create more unnecessary bureaucracy to coerce states into adopting legislation similar to what many are already moving toward on their own. For starters, let’s note that age alone doesn’t offer accident immunity. A 17-yearold who has completed a driver safety course, with a year or more of supervised experience behind the wheel, is likely to be a safer driver than an 18-year-old who lacks such training or is less mature. Also, North Carolina and other states have already adopted graduated licensing programs that restrict the hours that 16-year-olds can drive, as well as the young passengers that can accompany them. Those measures are helping to save lives, which is why states have embraced them without threat of federal sanctions. In fact, the success of those programs is part of the impetus behind the move to impose federal regulations. It’s also worth noting that a societal shift appears to be under way in which the driver’s license is losing its luster as a rite of passage for 16-year-olds. As reported earlier this year, federal data shows that only 30 percent of 16-year-olds got licenses in 2008, compared with 44.7 percent in 1988. While it’s too early to proclaim this a longterm trend, the driving age does show signs of shifting on its own. This could be the result of several factors, including the graduated licensing requirements that make it harder to obtain a license. With the economic uncertaintly, some families also may be reluctant to add young drivers to their insurance policies or spend money on an additional vehicle. Meanwhile, the growth of social media means teens have more options for virtual mobility without the use of vehicles. Reducing the accident rate for teen drivers should be a national priority. However, it’s one that can be accomplished through the efforts of individual states, without federal legislation. What works in Massachusetts may not fit Montana. For teen drivers, the best defense is graduated licensing, driver safety courses and many miles of supervised experience behind the wheel.

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

“Be a good listener. Your ears will never get you in trouble.” — Frank Tyger

Moderately confused

ASHINGTON — When a long-ago South Carolina legislator described his state as “too small to be a republic and too large to be an insane asylum,” he might have added, “but just perfect for a bordello!” Perhaps it is the humidity. Throw in a cocktail, stir with human nature, and you’ve got that ol’ fleeting magic. But what’s with all these kissy-boys spilling the beans on their paramours? Whither chivalry? Whither, alas, manliness? The women in these romantic imbroglios are steel magnolias to the weeping KATHLEEN willows of their undoubtedPARKER ly regrettable (and perhaps forgettable) dalliances. No one needs to be reminded of Gov. Mark Sanford’s tearful confession of infidelity with his Argentine soul mate. Nowex-wife Jenny Sanford has turned his betrayal into a cottage industry of feminine empowerment. She’s written a book, appeared on talk shows and become the ex officio leading lady of the tragedy formerly known as victimhood. I am woman, hear me call my lawyer. In a twist that would be ironic if it weren’t so overpoweringly icky, Sanford protegee and Jenny favorite-for-governor, Nikki Haley, is essentially being branded a harlot by two men claiming to have “known” her. In politics as in love, timing is everything. These alleged trysts apparently came to mind just as Haley was leading the Republican pack in the final countdown to Tuesday’s primary. Haley, a married mother of two, has denied the claims of both men. One is for-

mer Haley political consultant Will Folks, who for a time was also Governor Sanford’s director of communications. The other is lobbyist Larry Marchant Jr., who until recently was working for Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, also a contender for the governorship. Like Folks, Marchant claims to have had an “inappropriate physical relationship” with Haley. He felt he had to tell because, oh, he just had to! Bauer, who paid Marchant $50,000 in consulting fees (before firing him), has challenged Haley to a polygraph test to prove she has been faithful to her husband. Seriously, Mr. Hawthorne? To outsiders, this is the sort of delicious material HALEY that allows comedy writers to sleep in. To South Carolinians, these unfolding events are a blight, a pox, a Deepwater Horizon of gushing shame. It bears mentioning that the players in this little drama are not equals. I’ve known Folks, a take-no-prisoners political blogger, for years and take him at his word when he says that a story was about to break about his alleged relationship. Recently married and a new father, he says he was attempting damage control when he broke the story himself. I don’t condone or agree with his decision, but he’s no Marchant, whose earnest confession reeks of the self-service to which he has now consigned himself. I also know Haley and take her at her word when she denies the allegations. But let’s get at the deeper truth and ask: Is this really where we want our politics to

go? Are only perfect people acceptable for public service? As Bill Bennett once put it to me: “If perfection is our standard, then no one gets to talk.” This obsession with people’s personal lives, including the hand-wringing analysis of Al and Tipper Gore’s marriage, has turned us into a nation of purse-lipped old maids. No offense to purses. I’ve resisted commenting on the Gores’ decision to split after 40 years of marriage because, what possibly could I know? Apologies to the deeply conflicted, but the Gores’ divorce has no bearing whatsoever on my life. I reluctantly decided to weigh in on the Haley story because therein lie issues of more general consequence. This isn’t only politics at its worst. It’s a persecution, a witch hunt, a political rape. “All I know to do is fight,” said Haley by phone Friday. “Just stay strong and keep a smile on your face. ... I refuse to let this distract me.” Of greater personal concern than what may or may not have happened between consenting, if misguided, adults is, what has happened to men? The South has managed through the past 150 years of regional shame to cling to the one admirable trait of its antebellum past: the Gentle Man. He, too, apparently is endangered. With notable exceptions, the once-honorable protector of women’s virtue is just another gossip-monger. Perhaps this is the legacy of our egalitarian times. When men succumb to their inner Oprah, weeping and telling like slumber-party girls, it may be time for the stronger sex to lead. • • • Kathleen Parker’s e-mail address is kathleenparker@washpost.com.

All varieties of farmers valuable to community Agriculture is an important industry that provides the food we eat which gives us energy to work and have fun. Agriculture production happens in many different ways and takes on many shapes and sizes. I am the mentor farmer at the Elma C. Lomax Incubator Farm, the beginning farmer program that is a partnership between Cabarrus County government and North Carolina Cooperative Extension with partial funding by the Cannon Foundation. The program at the Incubator Farm focuses on organic food production and strives to teach the most sustainable methods of farming. I have been farming organically for over 12 years, and being friendly to our environment without the use of chemicals is important to me. It is farming no different than our grandparents did. A recent article quoted me as saying “I’m not one of those farmers that just throws out chemicals.” This comment was taken out of context, and I apologize for any confusion, frustration or concern that this article created in the agriculture community here within the county. The sustainable agriculture program would not be where it is right now without the support of farmers in the agriculture community, most of whom all employ conventional production standards. The work they do is valuable and also needed. We all work very hard to produce the food needs of our community. I would personally like to invite any and all conventional farmers to the Elma C. Lomax Incubator Farm to share their knowledge with the beginning farmers. This is exactly what I am doing on a daily basis without any compensation. We all need to work together, and I pledge my support to do so. — Brad Hinckley

K, it’s like this. There are two kinds of people — those who recycle and those who don’t and never will. Everybody, rich or poor, pays a water bill, with or without added fees or incentives. We use more, we pay more. As a proponent of recycling for many years, it is now becoming evident to me that the city has been covering up more than garbage in the landfill. In 1996, when we were guaranteed an easy practical solution to back-yard pickup, the cost was $1.44 per month — a flat fee. Today, the budgeted $445,000 cost all goes to the city contractor. By its own admission, the city has not reclaimed a single dime on the sale of recycled materials. Now, we are cutting back on limb collection to once a month. What a mess that will add to the curbside carpet, tires and toilets on the street corners. Let’s copy our idol, Greenville, S.C., which has an award-winning center where residents can exchange unwanted items. So, what does it take to make our good German, Scotch-Irish citizens change their feeble minds about recycling? Give them a good reason or get into their pocketbooks. Could the program pay for itself or even make money? Heaven forbid. Let “the people” do what they will with their recyclables and save money, not to mention salaries, cost of bins, trucks, gas, etc. The city’s $1.1 million deficit would be abolished in two years. What is the solution? Simple. 1. Don’t buy or use plastic water bottles, styrofoam cups, “to go” boxes or “plastic silverware,” as the fast-food worker called it recently. Refuse plastic bags. 2. Conserve paper. Stop junk mail. Sell your own aluminum and metal. Multiply what you use daily by the population of little ol’ Salisbury or the whole green Earth. 3. Continue to pay the rising city fee hooked onto your water bill, whether you ever use your bin or even have one to sit on your porch for a pot holder or kitty litter. 4. And the right answer: Reward those who recycle. No recycling fee for simple water users. Use “pay as you throw” fees or pay by weight. Make people responsible for the litter in their lives and what they leave for posterity. We need creative, cost-effective ideas, not punishment for recycling; not new and higher fees. Our city’s current policy is outdated, and the increased fees are unfounded. We already pay too much. Revolt, rethink, regroup, but don’t make us not recycle. • • • Clyde Overcash lives in Salisbury.

BP says it plans to replace oil containment cap in Gulf with bigger, better device next month

Journalist Helen Thomas retires amid uproar over remarks WASHINGTON (AP) — Helen Thomas, the opinionated White House correspondent who used her seat in the front row of history to grill 10 presidents and often exasperate them, lost her storied perch Monday in a flap over calling on Israelis to get “out of Palestine.” Thomas, 89, who made her name as a bulldog for United Press International and was a pioneer for women in journalism, abruptly retired as a columnist for Hearst News Service. The announcement, in a terse statement by Hearst, came after videotaped remarks she made to an independent filmmaker spread virally through the Internet. She apologized, but White House spokesman Robert Gibbs denounced her comments as “offensive and reprehensible.” Her press corps colleagues with the White House Correspondents Association issued a rare admonishment calling them “indefensible.” Thomas joined UPI in 1943 and began covering the White House for the wire service in 1960. Fiercely competitive, she became the first female White House bureau chief for a wire service when UPI named her to the position in 1974. She was also the first female officer at the National Press Club, where women had once been barred as members. “Helen was just a vacuum cleaner about information,” said author Kay Mills, who took dictation from Thomas as a young UPI staffer and wrote “A Place in the News: From the Women’s Pages to the Front Page.”

3 dead, others injured after natural gas line explodes CLEBURNE, Texas (AP) — Officials say three people have been killed and several others injured after a natural gas line exploded in rural north Texas. Officials say workers apparently hit the underground line south of Dallas while digging on Monday. Johnson County Emergency Management Coordinator Jack Snow says about six people were transported by air or ground ambulance to hospitals. Laura Harlin is a resident of nearby Granbury and she

says the explosion made a “huge rumbling” and sounded like a tornado even from eight miles away. The explosion caused a massive fire that sent orange flames and black smoke streaming into the air.

Intent of men who aimed to join terrorists was clear NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Two New Jersey men accused of trying to join a terrorist group in Somalia intended to commit acts of violence even though their plans appeared haphazard, a federal prosecutor said Monday. “Sophistication is not a measure of danger,” U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said. “Their intentions were described pretty clearly. They were watching certain videos and interested in what certain people were saying and advocating.” Mohamed Mahmood Alessa and Carlos Eduardo Almonte made their first court appearance Monday in Newark. Alessa, 20, and Almonte, 24, were arrested Saturday night at New York’s Kennedy Airport as they prepared to fly to Egypt and then to Somalia, authorities said. They are charged with conspiring to kill, maim and kidnap persons outside the United States by joining alShabab, a group designated by the U.S. in 2008 as a terrorist organization. Alessa and Almonte appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo on Monday with their hands and feet shackled. Both have dark curly hair and beards. Alessa had several cuts and bruises on his forehead.

Apple says iPhone will be thinner, have higher-res screen SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The next iPhone comes out June 24 and will have a higher-resolution screen, longer battery life and thinner design. CEO Steve Jobs opened Apple Inc.’s annual conference for software developers Monday by demonstrating the iPhone 4, which will cost $199 or $299 in the U.S. with a two-year AT&T contract, depending on the capacity. The iPhone 3GS, which debuted last year, will still be available, for $99.

Some of the mystery surrounding Apple’s latest creation had been punctured in April, when the tech blog Gizmodo bought a lost iPhone prototype for $5,000 and posted pictures of the unit. Apple demanded it back, and authorities have been investigating whether a Gizmodo editor broke any laws. “Stop me if you’ve already seen this,” Jobs said Monday as he started his demo. The iPhone 4 is sleeker and more advanced than the original iPhone that came out in 2007. Like the iPhone 3GS, it comes in black or white, though it has a more angular look. Its front and back are covered with glass, and it is rimmed with stainless steel that acts as part of the phone’s antenna.

Clam boat pulls up canisters off NY, crew sickened BOSTON (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard says a Massachusetts-based fishing boat dredging for clams off New York has pulled up 10 canisters, including one that broke open and caused two crew members to experience blistering and difficulty breathing. The Coast Guard says the two crew members from the ESS Pursuit were taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford, Mass. One has been transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital, and the other has been released. The Coast Guard says it was not immediately clear what chemical was involved, but authorities were investigating. The agency issued a rare order to the vessel to return to the New Bedford port Monday. The canisters were dropped back into the ocean. Officials are working to decontaminate the vessel and its four other crew members and to clearly mark the area south of Long Island where the containers were found.

Progressive leaders upset with White House WASHINGTON (AP) — Progressive activists who helped elect Barack Obama president complained Monday that the administration and congressional Democrats have been too timid and too willing to compromise. Even though Obama’s major first-term achieve-

ment — an overhaul of the nation’s health care system — passed without a single Republican vote, progressive leaders who gathered in Washington criticized the president for failing to create a government-run insurance option to compete with private industry. They faulted Obama for the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the slow pace in repealing the ban on gays serving in the military and last year’s economic stimulus package, which they described as inadequate at $787 billion. They also criticized his handling of the Gulf oil spill. “The White House has been an uncertain trumpet,” said Robert Borosage, a codirector of the Campaign for America’s Future, a progressive organization. “The administration’s reforms were too often too timid from the start and too readily compromised along the way.” Although leaders still spoke with admiration for Obama, it was clear he’s not as popular with unions, bloggers and other progressives.

Chrysler recalls almost 700,000 Jeeps, minivans DETROIT (AP) — Chrysler is recalling almost 600,000 minivans and Jeep Wranglers in the United States and another 100,000 elsewhere because of brake or wiring problems that could create safety problems, the company and federal regulators said Monday. Chrysler said it is recalling 288,968 Jeep Wranglers from the 2006 through 2010 model years due to a potential brake fluid leak. It also is recalling 284,831 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country

minivans from the 2008 and 2009 model years because a wiring problem can cause a fire inside the sliding doors. Another 76,430 Wranglers and 34,143 minivans are being recalled in Canada, Mexico and other international markets, Chrysler said. Neither problem has caused any crashes or injuries, Chrysler Group LLC said.

U.S. military in Iraq detains soldier linked to leaked video WASHINGTON (AP) — The Army has detained a 22year-old soldier in Baghdad in connection with the leak of a military video that shows Apache helicopters gunning down unarmed men in Iraq, including two journalists, defense officials said Monday. Army Spc. Bradley Manning of Potomac, Md., now being held in Kuwait pending the results of an investigation, was the third suspected leaker known to have been apprehended under the Obama administration. “This is a startling pattern for anyone who’s been watching the field for a while,” said Steven Aftergood, a director of the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists. “It certainly shows that this administration is aggressively pursuing leakers” and that “there is essentially zero tolerance for public disclosure of classified information,” he said. Meanwhile, a convicted computer hacker from California claimed he alerted authorities about Manning after meeting him online, calling the young military analyst “a good kid who got a little mixed up.”

Tips pour in to officers searching for missing 7-year-old PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Twenty-two state, local and federal agencies are following up on more than 1,200 tips in the search for a 7year-old Portland boy who has been missing for four days. Kyron Horman disappeared from Skyline Elementary School on Friday. Multnomah County sheriff’s deputies and volunteers have been searching the densely wooded area near the pastoral school since then. On Monday morning, deputies and FBI agents posted about 40 yards from the school stopped approaching cars and asked passengers whether they were at the school Friday and had any information about Kyron. Multnomah County sheriff’s Capt. Jason Gates described the variety of tips as “leads that aren’t as exciting, and other leads that are more prevalent.” “We need more,” he said at a news conference Monday. “Every tip, no matter how insignificant you think it is, could be the one we need.”

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — As officials reported a gradual increase in the amount of oil being captured from the spewing wellhead at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, BP PLC said Monday that it plans next month to replace the cap collecting the crude with a slightly bigger device. The newer cap will “provide a better, tighter fit” than the current one collecting roughly one-third to three-fourths of the oil gushing daily from the sea floor, company spokesman Robert Wine told The Associated Press. But it will also allow the oil now being collected to again spew out into the Gulf during the changeover. The oil began gushing after a BP oil rig explosion April 20 and recently increased in volume after officials sheared off the top of the damaged outflow pipe as part of the latest containment effort. BP believes the bigger cap will fit over more of the pipe than the current cap. The current device is collecting about 466,200 gallons of oil per day, Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the government’s point man for the oil spill response, said earlier Monday at the White House. He also elaborated on comments made over the weekend that the spill cleanup would last into fall, acknowledging the full process would take much longer. “Dealing with the oil spill on the surface will take a couple of months,” he said Monday, but the process of getting oil out of marshlands and other habitats “will be years.”

May’s hit salvages victory BY MIKE LONDON

Staff report

KANNAPOLIS — Bloops fell safely Kannapolis 10 and liners Stanly 9 w e r e c a u g h t during Kannapolis’ zany 10-9 victory against Stanly County at Veterans Field on Monday. Kannapolis’ Dylan May drove a ball about 370 feet to center field for an out in the third. In the eighth, he knocked in the winning run with an opposite-field MAY blooper to shallow left. “I was just trying to avoid going deep in the count, and I didn’t hit it good at all,” May said. “But it felt great to win. It’s better to play bad and win than to play great and lose.” Kannapolis second baseman Wes Honeycutt had a similar experience. He went 4-for-5 with a bunch of bouncing singles, but the one ball he drilled was an easy double play for Stanly (6-3, 4-3). “My thing is to put the ball in play, and I put some balls where they couldn’t make the play,” Honeycutt said. “Then the one ball I hit on the nose gives them two outs.” Kannapolis (5-6, 4-4) had mental lapses and made five errors, but it continued its surge into the top half of the Area III Southern Division standings. “All we’ve been preaching is find a way to win,” Kannapolis coach Matt Stack said. “Stanly can swing it, and we didn’t make the routine plays we really have to make. But we still found a way.” Kannapolis had Northwest Cabarrus lefty Taylor West on the mound, but West was fighting sickness and didn’t have the sort of stuff he had when he struck out 12 East Rowan hitters in the fourth round of the 3A playoffs. He exited after four innings and six Stanly runs, including a bomb to right field by masher Corey Dick. Kannapolis’ defense stabilized behind A.L. Brown freshman Nathaniel Sexton, who survived the fifth and sixth. He gave Stack a chance to turn things over to relievers Zach Jones, who won it, and Kevin Hamilton, who earned a save with a 1-2-3 ninth. Kannapolis weathered a disastrous bottom of the first. Stanly starting pitcher Jordan Hildreth faced only two batters before moving to shortstop. Both those batters reached. Then Dick took the mound and walked May to load the bases with none out.

Five members of the K a n napolis Intimidators, including South Rowan High School graduate Daniel Wagner, were named South Atlantic League all-stars. Five players tied for the most selected in the Northern Division. First baseman Ian Gac will start alongside Wagner, a second baseman. Outfielder Kyle Colligan and two pitchers — Brandon Kloess and Joe Serafin — will also WAGNER represent the Intimidators on June 22 at Flour Field in Greenville, S.C. Wagner, a Kannapolis resident, has earned his first professional all-star nod. He is hitting .282 with a team-leading 16 stolen bases this season. Wagner has the top batting average among second basemen in the Northern Division and ranks second in RBIs (23). He has also played well defensively at second base. Gac, in his first season with the Chicago White Sox organization, is hitting .278 with a team-leading 11 home runs and 41 RBIs. He is one behind the league leader in home runs, fourth in the league in slugging percentage (.526) and second in extra-base hits (30). Gac has been named an allstar three times before in his professional career: Midwest League (midseason and postseason in 2008) and Hawaiian Winter Baseball League (2007). Colligan will be making his first professional all-star game appearance as a utility outfielder. He leads the Intimidators in batting average (.299), on-base percentage (.381) and runs scored (31). Colligan is 13-for-25 in his last seven games. Kloess, the Kannapolis closer, will make his first allstar game appearance. He has allowed three runs in 29 1⁄3 innings for a 0.92 ERA. He went the entire month of May without allowing a run and has struck out 37 batters while walking five this season. Kloess leads the Intimidators with five saves. He is fourth among relievers in the league in strikeouts per nine innings, has the fourth-lowest walk total per nine innings and has allowed the fifth-fewest baserunners per nine innings. Serafin is also making his first all-star appearance. He is tied for the team lead in wins with five and has a teamlow 3.55 ERA among the starting pitchers. He has induced the most groundball double plays in the South Atlantic League with 11, including five in one outing.

One of many unheralded commodities on a team with only two starters returning for coach Brian Hightower, Sapp was named the series MVP following East’s sweep of Wilson Hunt at Five County Stadium in Zebulon. “I really didn’t know what to expect out of this year since we lost so many seniors,” Sapp said. “I never thought I’d make it this far or be MVP of the state championship, but I worked hard all year.

The Kannapolis Intimidators were swept by the Savannah Sand Gnats in a doubleheader in Savannah on Monday. Kannapolis dropped the first game 4-3 in 11 innings and lost 7-1 in the nightcap. Brady Shoemaker had a homer to dead center and an RBI single for a 2-0 lead in the opener, but the Intimidators couldn’t hold it. Alonzo Harris’ two-run triple tied the game for Savannah. Shoemaker put Kannapolis back on top in the 11th with a run-scoring double, but the Sand Gnats scored two in the bottom half. Pedro Zapata’s bases-clearing double in the fourth sunk Kannapolis in the second game.

Brown sidesteps questions about the future BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press

CHARLOTTE — Larry Brown is putting potential draft picks through workouts. The general manager is chatting with Brown regularly to discuss shaping the roster for next season. Everyone is acting as if Brown will be back for a third season with the Charlotte Bobcats. The Hall of Fame coach just won’t say it definitively and end all the speculation. Three days after declining to speak to reporters, Brown chose his words carefully after Monday’s pre-draft workout. Has he decided on whether he’s returning? “I’m here coaching,” Brown replied. “Obviously, I’m under contract and doing my job.” So it’s settled that he’s coming back? “I’m here. If I wasn’t here, it’d be another thing,” answered Brown. Brown then backed away from the circle of reporters and

ended the interview. It was another bizarre twist in a twomonth stretch of uncertainty surrounding the Michael Jordan-owned Bobcats and the well-traveled Brown, in his 13th pro or college head coaching job. Brown, who turns 70 in September, said after the Bobcats were swept by Orlando in the first round of the playoffs that he missed being away from his wife and teenage children in suburban Philadelphia and hadn’t decided whether he’d be back despite having two years left on his contract. He insisted, though, that he wouldn’t coach for anybody other than Jordan. While that hasn’t stopped rampant speculation of Brown bolting for another job, Bobcats GM Rod Higgins is working under the assumption that Brown will be on Charlotte’s bench this fall — even if Brown hasn’t made his plans clear to management. “If you watched the watched the workouts today and you watched the guy that was run-

ning the workouts, it was the coach that we’ve had the last two years,” Higgins said. “The situation is kind of status quo.” “Larry has been here and I’ve talked to Larry over the last three weeks practically every day in terms of how we improve our roster, what-if scenarios if we get into the draft, how we venture going forward and improving our roster,” Higgins said. “Those are the kind of conversations we’ve been having.” The Bobcats are in a difficult spot with several key decisions that must be made in the next month — with Brown expected to have significant input. Higgins called point guard Raymond Felton’s impending free agency a “delicate subject.” Felton, the No. 5 pick in the 2005 draft, improved this season before struggling in the playoffs. Felton turned down a long-term deal last summer, and Charlotte is close to the luxury tax, a figure Jordan has said the Bobcats won’t go over. “We’ve always maintained an interest in Raymond and

we’ve always expressed how much we like Raymond,” Higgins said. “But it’s a different landscape than it was probably in July.” Higgins was more definitive with impending restricted free agent Tyrus Thomas, saying they’re leaning toward making him a one-year qualifying offer of more than $6 million. “Tyrus, when we traded for him, he’s a guy that we envisioned going long-term with,” Higgins said. Higgins has also had “fruitful conversations” with teams looking to unload second-round picks, which is why Charlotte is working out prospects despite not having a pick in the June 24 draft. It’s also why Brown has been working despite failing to fully commit to next season. “You can’t really get caught up in that part,” Higgins said of Brown’s indecision. “I think you have to continue to communicate with each other. And there hasn’t been anything that has been different. ... I can’t afford to read a whole lot into it.”

The 6-foot-6 Felix, from College of Southern Idaho, had been the first junior college recruit to sign with Duke in Mike Krzyzewski’s tenure as coach of the Blue Devils.

JON C. LAKEY/SALISBURY POST

East’s team gathers in left field after a playoff win against Northwest Cabarrus.

VICTORY FROM 1B

But Justin Seager was picked off second, and West rapped into a snappy double play to end the threat. Kannapolis trailed 3-0 before it tied the game in the third. Seager singled in a run before Honeycutt dodged a tag by catcher Rusty Hartsell and HONEYCUTT scored on a groundball. John Wallace’s sac fly got Kannapolis even. Trailing 6-3 in the fourth, Kannapolis scored on Honeycutt’s double-play grounder and Seager’s second RBI single of the night. Kannapolis took the lead for the first time with a fourrun fifth. The key blow was Ryan Goodman’s flyball down the right-field line that fell

safely and transformed a 6-5 deficit into a 7-6 lead. Kannapolis took a 9-6 lead to the seventh, but Sexton ran out of gas. Jerrett Richardson’s RBI single tied it 9-9. In the Stanly eighth, Matt Lisk rapped a hit to left field, but Goodman’s throw to Honeycutt cut him down trying to stretch his hit into a double. A wild moment in the bottom of the eighth helped set up May’s game-deciding hit. After Honeycutt started the inning with an infield hit and stole second, Seager slapped a groundball to the right side. He would’ve been out, but Stanly reliever Matt Lisk, who was covering first base, dropped his glove as he sprinted — and the ball was in his glove. May followed with his bloop single to score Honeycutt. Hartsell nearly tied it for Stanly in the ninth, but Tanner Black snagged his long drive just in front of the 385-foot sign in center to end it. “We didn’t have all our team for a while because Northwest went deep in the

“It was just incredible,” Sapp said. “I had a great time playing with all my friends. Any of them could have been named MVP because they all had a part in it. They all had their jobs and did what they had to do all year long.” Sapp went 5-for-8 with four runs and six RBIs in two games against Hunt, which lost 9-3 on Friday and 15-10 the next afternoon. He hit a tiebreaking triple in the fifth inning of the opener and drilled a three-run homer in the sixth. Both of his homers in 2010 occurred in East’s final six games. “I was looking to go middleoppo and try to drive it in the gaps because I knew if I hit it into that gap I could be standing on ‘3’ with my speed,” Sapp said. “With runners on base I was just looking to get base hits. “The pitches before (the homer), I pulled one foul and was right on it. He just left me one up and in, and I got the barrel to it. It just went out.” Sapp hit two doubles Saturday, including one that drove in two teammates while capping an eight-run top of the first. Hunt scored six times in its half of the inning, but East held a 15-7 lead by the start of the fourth. The game ended with a flyout to Wesley LeRoy, and the Mustangs rushed toward the middle of the infield to celebrate. “I love doing the dogpile with everybody,” said Sapp, who hit .369 for the season and .419 in the playoffs. “That was probably the best moment.” Sapp contributed as a pinchrunner late in the 2009 season and stole 14 bases this year. His speed, timely hitting and stellar defense were critical to East’s title run. During a 4-2 victory against Mount Pleasant in the third round, Troutman and Sapp smacked

Will Sapp makes a highlight-reel catch in Game 2 against Tuscola. back-to-back homers in the sixth inning to break a 1-all tie. East held on for a 2-1 win over Northwest Cabarrus in the next round. Northwest’s Tanner Black started flying around the bases following a one-out hit in the seventh inning but was thrown out at third thanks to a perfect relay involving Sapp, Troutman and Holmes. That victory pushed the Mustangs into the best-of-three Western finals, and Tuscola held a 3-0 advantage in the fourth inning of Game 1 when Sapp made a leaping catch to keep his team’s deficit manageable. A sixth-inning explosion lifted East to a 5-3 win. Sapp made his most memorable catch the next afternoon. With the Mountaineers leading 5-4, Walton Shepherd opened the bottom of the fourth inning with a long drive to center. Sapp raced back, ascended the outfield hill that’s befuddled so many visiting defenders and found the fence.

Jessica Caldwell took first in the triple jump with a mark of 37-83⁄4, and Cuthbertson claimed second at roughly 34-91⁄2. She had a time of 15.69 i n the 100 hurdles, which Williams won with a 13.73.

the hill, I found the fence, then ran to the spot where the ball was at so I didn’t have to deal with going up the hill, finding the fence and finding the ball all at the same time.” Sapp’s experience enabled him to know that doing all three of those things at once is a nearly impossible task. “When you run up the hill, your head starts bobbing up and down,” Sapp said. “That first step you kind of go up and lose the ball for a second when you take that first step. I went up the hill, then found the fence and then ran along the fence so my head wouldn’t be moving at all.” A four-run top of the seventh gave East an 8-5 lead, and Sapp made another nice running catch in the bottom half of the inning. A dogpile formed near the mound following a flyout to right field, and the Mustangs were able to celebrate in the same manner a week later. “It was hard to believe that we won it,” Sapp said, “but we worked for this all year and it’s what we were playing for since the beginning of the season.”

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

Associated Press

PHOENIX — Stephen Drew drove in four runs, Mark Reynolds hit his 13th home run of the season, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat Atlanta 7-4 on Monday, the third loss in four games for the NL East leaders. Drew had an RBI single in the first inning and a threerun triple in Arizona’s five-run fourth. Derek Lowe (8-5), winner of his previous three starts, gave up seven runs and eight hits in four innings, his shortest outing of the season. Dan Haren (6-4) got his first win in four starts, although he was far from his best. He scattered nine hits and walked two, allowing three runs in 5-plus innings. The Braves stranded 12 runners. Padres 3, Phillies 1 PHILADELPHIA — Adrian Gonzalez’s first of two solo homers broke up Cole Hamels’ bid for a no-hitter with one out in the seventh, and Wade LeBlanc pitched seven impressive innings. Gonzalez lined an oppositefield shot into the flower bed just over the left-field wall to snap a scoreless tie. Scott Hairston connected three pitches later for a 2-0 lead. Hamels gave up three hits and two runs in eight innings, losing his third straight start. Giants 6, Reds 5 CINCINNATI — Juan Uribe drove in four runs with singles in the third and seventh, providing the final lead in a back-and-forth game. Cubs 6, Pirates 1 PITTSBURGH — Carlos Silva extended the best start by a Cubs pitcher in 43 years, allowing one run over seven innings, and Ryan Theriot scored four times for Chicago. Silva became the first Cubs starter to go 8-0 since Ken Holtzman was 9-0 in 1967. Rockies 5, Astros 1 DENVER — Jason Hammel

pitched 71⁄3 crisp innings and Clint Barmes had a two-run double. AMERICAN LEAGUE Mariners 4, Rangers 2 ARLINGTON, Texas — Cliff Lee threw a seven-hitter to help Seattle snap a threegame losing streak. Lee, who struck out seven and walked none, didn’t allow a run until Josh Hamilton’s one-out RBI single in the ninth. Red Sox 4, Indians 1 CLEVELAND — Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched eight shutout innings for Boston. Matsuzaka (5-2) gave up four hits — all singles — and was never threatened. In the club’s last nine games outside Fenway Park, the Red Sox rotation is 8-0 with a 0.70 ERA. Angels 4, Athletics 2 OAKLAND, Calif. — Bobby Abreu hit a two-run homer, Scott Kazmir won for the third time in four starts and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Oakland Athletics for their seasonbest sixth straight victory. Erick Aybar added an RBI triple as the Angels improved to 8-1 since Kendry Morales broke his leg jumping on home plate in a celebration following his game-ending grand slam against Seattle on May 29. Abreu’s first-inning drive gave Los Angeles a quick lead and the Angels only built on it from there. Manager Mike Scioscia returned following a one-game absence for his daughter’s high school graduation. Howie Kendrick singled in a run as the Angels won their sixth straight in Oakland. They have outscored the A’s 30-14 in those games. Kazmir (5-5) gave up a solo home run to Jake Fox with one out in the seventh, ending the pitcher’s scoreless streak in Oakland at 17 1-3 innings spanning his last three outings. The left-hander pounded the strike zone to work ahead in the count much of the game.

Washington selects Harper with top pick BY DENNIS WASZAK JR. Associated Press

SECAUCUS, N.J. — The Washington Nationals got their ace a year ago. Now, they think they’ve found their slugger. The Nationals selected Bryce Harper, a 17-year-old with prodigious power from the College of Southern Nevada, with the No. 1 overall pick in the baseball draft Monday night. “It’s what I’ve wanted since I was 7 years old,” he said. A year after taking Stephen Strasburg, the Nationals picked Harper, who can play catcher but was announced as an outfielder at the draft site at MLB Net- HARPER work studios by commissioner Bud Selig. Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo envisions Harper as a No. 3-type power hitter with a strong arm in right field. “We’re going to take the rigor and the pressures of learning the position, the difficult position of catcher, away from him,” Rizzo said, “and really let him concentrate on the offensive part of the game and let his athleticism take over as an outfielder.” Harper hit .443 with 31 home runs and 98 RBIs in his first college season in a wood bat league after skipping his final two years of high school and getting his GED. He played against East Rowan products Trey Holmes and Zach Smith of Pitt Community College recently in the National Junior College World Series. Harper showed solid defensive instincts behind the plate and called pitches much of the time, but his path to the majors will be in the outfield. “I can get better out there, I think,” Harper said. “Anywhere they need me, I’ll play. I just want to make it and we’ll see what happens when I get there.” The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Harper surpassed former big

league pitcher Alex Fernandez, who went fourth to the Chicago White Sox in 1990, as the highest-drafted JUCO player. With the second overall pick, Pittsburgh selected hard-throwing Texas high school right-hander Jameson Taillon. Baltimore went next and picked Florida high school shortstop Manny Machado, who has drawn comparisons to Alex Rodriguez. Cal State Fullerton shortstop Christian Colon went to Kansas City at No. 4, while Cleveland took Ole Miss lefthander Drew Pomeranz. Texas A&M righty Barret Loux went sixth to Arizona, and North Carolina right-hander Matt Harvey was selected by the New York Mets at No. 7. After not signing as a thirdround pick of the Angels in 2007, Harvey went 7-2 in both his freshman and sophomore years. He was 8-3 with a 3.09 ERA as a junior. He had a career-high strikeouts against Clemson in April. Houston took Georgia high school outfielder Delino DeShields Jr., son of the former big leaguer of the same name, eighth. Clemson’s Kyle Parker, also the quarterback on the football team, was taken 26th overall by Colorado. Harper is expected to seek a record contract through his adviser, Scott Boras, who last year negotiated a recordbreaking four-year, $15.1 million deal with the Nationals for Strasburg. The Nationals have through Aug. 16 to sign Harper, who has said he has plenty of options, including going back to Southern Nevada for another year if negotiations go awry. “I can’t remember back-toback years where there’s two players that have separated themselves from the rest of the field,” Rizzo said. “In that respect, it is very, very unique. I think it’s a lucky time to have two No. 1 picks overall.” The draft’s first- and supplemental rounds were to be completed Monday night, with rounds 2-50 selected over the next two days.

Stephen Strasburg went 7-2 with a 1.30 ERA in the minors.

STRASBURG FROM 1B

“I’m looking forward to that first outing or two being out of the way,” manager Jim Riggleman said. “I know the attention’s not going to go away completely, but the anticipation of the thing has been building since the draft — and before the draft — last year.” No one’s seen anything like it. A No. 1 overall pick who gets sellout, rock-star, hire-extra-security treatment in minor league cities such as Harrisburg and Rochester. The Nationals are actually having a decent year following back-to-back 100-losses seasons, but everything they’ve done has been overshadowed by talk about a player who didn’t have a locker in the clubhouse, whose debut against the Pittsburgh Pirates has been given its own baseball holiday nickname: “Strasmas.” “He needs to take a step back, take a deep breath and kind of soak in the moment because you only debut once in your career. It’s a special day for him, also,” general manager Mike Rizzo said. “We’re looking forward to getting back into a more normal routine with Stephen Strasburg as part of the Washington Nationals.” That would be just fine with Strasburg. He has candidly stated on many occasions that his majors debut has been long overdue. “I feel like I’ve been

ready,” he said after his last minor league outing, five scoreless innings for Triple-A Syracuse at Buffalo last week. There’s not much argument there. It was almost cruel to watch Strasburg overwhelm hitters in Double-A and Triple-A. His combined stats: 7-2 with a 1.30 ERA with 65 strikeouts and only 13 walks in 551⁄3 innings. But money trumped wins, at least this year. Having already invested heavily in the right-hander from San Diego State with a record $15.1 million contract over four years, the Nats wanted to save some dough down the road by calling Strasburg up after June 1, thus delaying by one year the eventual date when he will be eligible for arbitration. Strasburg is also looking forward to normalcy because he’s not a limelight guy. He will sometimes let a reporter know if he doesn’t care for a question, which can both refreshing and embarrassing. Strasburg was married in January, but the Nationals have already announced that on Tuesday: “Strasburg’s family will NOT be available to media (no exceptions).” Nationals Park has been sold out only once so far this season — on opening day — but the thought that Strasburg might pitch drew the season’s second biggest crowd Friday. Strasburg’s thoughts about it all? “It’s my major league debut. What more can you say?” he said. “It’s something I’ve dreamed about my entire life, and now it’s starting to become a reality.”

Make life hard for the defenders BY PHILLIP ALDER

United Feature Syndicate

When the dummy comes down and declarer sees he is in trouble, he should try to make it as hard as possible for the defenders to find the killing defense. This deal is an example. How should South plan the play in four hearts? West leads the club king: five, two, ace. South might have rebid three no-trump. Here, despite four-card heart support, North would probably have passed. (It is usually right to play in a nine-card major-suit fit, but that North hand is 4-3-3-3 and soft, with five points in quacks.) Note that three notrump has nine top tricks. Four hearts has those same nine tricks. A 10th can be established in clubs by leading toward dummy’s jack. The snag, of course, is that West can take his club queen and shift to a spade, giving the defense four more tricks. However, if you look at the West hand, he has identical holdings in spades and diamonds. Maybe he will switch to the wrong suit. But he won’t do that if South immediately draws trumps. This would allow East to discard the diamond two, discouraging in that suit. If West is watching, it would then be easy for him to find the spade shift. South must win trick one and return his remaining club at trick two, forcing West to find the right play without the benefit of a discard from his partner. For experts: There is a solution for the defenders. At trick two, East drops the club

A large endeavor that failed in the past is likely to be resurrected in the year ahead, and developed into something of great value. Looking at it with a fresh eye will reveal ways to turn it into a wonderful creation. Gemini (May 21-June 20) - You could find yourself more earnestly keeping your mind on something that needs solving, and consequently coming up with the answer. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Because your eye is much sharper than usual for the little pieces that make up the whole, everything you do will be done with considerable care. Mistakes aren't likely to be a factor. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Everything you undertake should work out to your advantage, not because you're lucky, but because you're far more methodical than usual. It's a time to carry things as far as you dare. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Use this day for advancing serious endeavors that hold promise for larger rewards both of a tangible and intangible nature. Your mind is sharper than usual and will spot opportunities others miss. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Exciting things could happen for you today, mainly because you're likely to handle serious matters like a game, but one that you play exceedingly well. You'll enjoy who you are, what you are and where you are. Scorpio — (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Significant transformations in growth are likely to transpire at this time without the detection of your competitors. Before they realize what has happened, you'll be far beyond their reach. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If behooves you to pay attention to what others have to say, and that includes listening to your spouse. What they know can be used to your benefit in extremely beneficial ways. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today offers a unique but brief time frame that is likely to expose you to a greater array of beneficial opportunities. Be alert and capitalize on as many as you can handle. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Don't put any limitations on your imagination, especially if you are involved in some form of creative work. You are likely to conceive something quite ingenious and profitable. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Your eye and mind are both sharp for picking up on the little things others have seemed to miss. Consequently, you could spot something that will prove to be extremely advantageous for you. Aries (March 21-April 19) — What you do is likely to capture the attention of the powers that be, so it behooves you to do good work when on the job. It could open the door for a bonus or a raise. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — There's a good chance that you're on the verge of producing something that has impressive potential. Keep doing what you're doing, because it could earn you a higher position in life.

eight, his highest club asking for the higher-ranking of the other two side suits. (If he wanted a diamond switch, he would play his four at the second trick.)

Tucci signs on to superhero saga ‘Captain America’ LOS ANGELES (AP) — Stanley Tucci has signed on to help put Captain America in business. The Academy Awardnominated actor has joined the cast of the superhero saga “Captain America: The First Avenger.” Tucci will play Dr. Abraham Erskine, who in the Marvel Comics series was a scientist behind a super-soldier program that gave the title hero his powers. Due in theaters July 22, 2011, “Captain America” stars Chris Evans in the title role and also features Hugo Weaving and Hayley Atwell. Tucci’s credits include “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Julie & Julia.”

Dear Dr. Gott: I am a 79year-old male who has a chronic runny nose, diagnosed as vasomotor rhinitis. An ENT doctor told me that it is incurable. I have tried at least 10 different nasal sprays, the most recent being ipratDR. PETER ropium bromide. It GOTT helped for a while, but is no longer effective. Any suggestions? Dear Reader: Vasomotor rhinitis occurs because the blood vessels in the lining of the nose swell. This stimulates the mucous glands in the nose, resulting in a chronic stuffy/runny nose. While not harmful, the condition can be extremely annoying. Causes vary from person to person but can include medications, weather changes, specific foods, irritants in the air and chronic health conditions. Perhaps if we consider each possibility, we can zero in on the cause of your rhinitis. Medications, including aspirin, ibuprofen, sedatives, antidepressants and those taken for hypertension, erectile dysfunction and oral contraceptives, can trigger activity. Even the decongestant nasal sprays you have tried can cause negative symptoms. Changes in temperature

and humidity can cause nasal membranes to swell, resulting in a runny nose. Specific foods, primarily those that are spicy, and alcoholic beverages, such as beer and wine, trigger such activity. Irritants in the air you breathe — perfumes, pet dander, secondhand smoke, chemicals from a nearby plant or factory, dust, flowers in bloom and a host of other triggers — can be to blame. Lastly, medical conditions such as nasal polyps, middle-ear infections, stress, hypothyroidism and hormonal changes can be to blame. A physician listening to the presenting symptoms will likely make the diagnosis; he or she may have to rule out the possibility of allergies through skin or blood testing. During skin testing, the skin is exposed to small amounts of common airborne allergens, such as those from pollen, cats, dogs or dust mites. Blood tests measure the amount of specific antibodies in the blood. In an attempt to rule out sinus issues, a CT scan, a form of computerized X-ray, or nasal endoscopy, accomplished with the assistance of a fiberoptic camera, might be ordered. Treatment will depend on the severity of symptoms. For some, over-thecounter or prescription decongestants will reduce congestion and narrow nasal blood vessels. Nasal sprays, of which there are

many, include saline, antihistamines, corticosteroids and decongestants. Because symptoms can last a few hours or a few days, appear almost constantly or are more pronounced at a specific time of the year, I recommend the following. Keep a journal of when an attack occurs and what preceded it. Did you inhale exhaust fumes while riding behind a diesel truck on an interstate highway? Did you eat spicy foods at a luncheon buffet? Did you have a visitor who smokes? Did you visit a friend who has a woodstove for heat? Are you on a beta-blocker medication for hypertension? Are there similarities in conditions that precede each attack? If so, try to identify them and then make further attempts to avoid the possible trigger(s).

Commissioners agree to examine county boundaries B Y K ARISSA M INN

kminn@salisburypost.com

The Rowan County Board of Commissioners voted Monday to ask the N.C. Geodetic Survey Division for help in determining the boundary line between Rowan and Cabarrus counties. According to Rowan County Attorney Jay Dees, the Geographic Information System (GIS) departments of the two counties do not

agree on a consistent boundary line. “Also, we have bits and pieces of some survey work that’s been done that reflects yet a third location of the line between the two counties,” Dees said. “This is the first action we need to take to begin the process of trying to determine where the line is, and then whether Cabarrus and Rowan agree that’s where line should be.” He said the resolution to be ap-

proved by commissioners was the first step in determining where the boundary falls. Cabarrus and Rowan counties must then decide whether or not they agree on the line mapped by the state and make adjustments. The issue was brought forward, Dees said, by a property owner at the edge of the county who wants to develop that property. Rowan County recognizes a line that divides the property, so the county

doesn’t have total jurisdiction. According to Cabarrus County, though, the property lies within Rowan County and should be dealt with here. “When we determine where we think the line should be, there are obviously a lot of people that could be impacted by the change in recognizing a different line,” Dees said. “They may be voting for Cabarrus County Commissioners instead of Rowan County Commis-

sioners, or they might be in Rowan schools instead of Cabarrus schools.” He said the county needs to make the process “public information intensive” and said county staff members have already scheduled meetings with some impacted residents.

officer that he needed to check on his dogs.

County Commissioner Jon Barber will not face criminal charges in relation to allegations that he was drunk in his sixthgrade classroom at Southeast Middle School on May 19, the day before he resigned his teaching job. District Attorney Bill Kenerly said in a prepared statement Monday there were no criminal violations involving students and that Barber could not be “successfully prosecuted” for BARBER other crimes based on blood-alcohol test results obtained by the Rowan-Salisbury School System. In response to the news, Barber said, “I'm glad that the process has concluded itself, and I'm very relieved that they have conducted a very professional investigation.” Barber told the Post at the time he left the school early that day and told administrators he was resigning “to pursue other opportunities.” School system officials have said only that Barber resigned for personal reasons. He subsequently admitted to battling with alcoholism, but he has not publicly elaborated or changed his story about what happened that day at Southeast Middle. Multiple sources told the Post, however, that Barber was removed from his classroom by Southeast Principal Skip Kraft because of suspicion that he was drunk. Students were preparing to take end-of-grade tests when the incident occurred. In his statement Monday, Kenerly said Barber “was escorted from the premises of Southeast Middle School and subsequently resigned” his teaching job. Kenerly said an SBI investigation led him to conclude “there was no violation of the criminal law involving any student.” He went on to say the school system uses a device known as an Intoxilyzer 400 to test employees suspected of having alcohol in their systems while at work. That device — a handheld alcohol concentration tester that a person blows into — is not among those approved for use in the state’s justice system. “The results obtained through the use of this device are not admissible in the courts of North Carolina, and no law enforcement officer administered sobriety tests to Mr. Barber,” Kenerly wrote. “Under these circumstances it is my professional opinion that motor vehicle or other offenses could not be successfully prosecuted. Therefore criminal charges will not be filed.” Kenerly obtained a court order requiring the school system to turn over results of the blood-alcohol test administered to Barber on May 19. The court order prohib-

Teachers, supporters voice their concern on county budget B Y K ARISSA M INN

kminn@salisburypost.com

Bright yellow-green shirts with black letters spelling “MEET HALFWAY” filled the county commissioner’s meeting room to overflowing Monday evening. About 150 people wore the shirts in support of Rowan-Salisbury Schools at the Board of Commissioners’ public hearing on the budget. The school system’s Parent-Teacher Association gave them away outside the county administration building, soon finding that they didn’t have enough shirts for the people who wanted them. The simply stated slogan is a request for commissioners to fund at

least half of Rowan-Salisbury Schools’ $3.3 million budget increase. The Board of Education would then match that amount from its fund balance. The hearing drew about 200 people, who filled the meeting and overflow rooms and spilled out into the hallway. Of the 34 people who spoke during Monday’s public hearing, 19 focused on public school funding. Administrators, teachers, parents and students shared with commissioners why they felt schools needed the board’s help. Patty Overcash, president of the Rowan-Salisbury Schools PTA Coun-

A Jake Alexander Boulevard business was destroyed by a fire early Monday. And the building’s owner ended up handcuffed and on the ground while trying to save his two dogs. Salisbury Auto Spa, a car detailing business at 1500 Jake Alexander Blvd., is a total loss, according to Terry Smith, city fire marshal. The business is located behind Jake Alexander Auto Sales. Smith, Salisbury Police officers and the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation were on the scene Monday trying to determine the cause of the fire.

He said police told his wife that his business, Jake Alexander Auto Sales at 1500 Jake Alexander Blvd., was on fire.

He also urged commissioners to look at central office staff and ask themselves whether all those positions are necessary. “In hard times, private companies often re-organize so that they can do more with fewer people and thus save money,” Wright said. “It’s time for the school board to do this and to reduce the administrative costs of running our schools.” Dr. Jim Emerson, chairman of the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education, said the school system will be facing a “huge funding cliff” when

He said he recently took his first vacation in five years on the advice of his counselor. Barber pleaded guilty to driving while impaired in 2008 after he was found in February of that year passed out in his car near the corner of Sherrills Ford and Long Branch roads.

Gig Hilton, president of Davidson County Broadcasting, submitted a conditional use permit Wednesday for the construction of a 1,200-foot broadcast tower. It would be located in Mount Ulla, on property owned by Richard L. and Dorcas Parker. In November 2006, commissioners voted to deny the Parkers a permit for a 1,350-foot broadcast tower on the property to serve Davidson County Broadcasting. Hilton appealed the county’s decision. In September 2007, a threejudge panel of the N.C. Court of Appeals upheld the denial, and so did the N.C. Supreme Court. During those proceedings, Rowan County was represented by Anthony Fox of the Parker Poe law firm. The board voted unanimously Monday to bring him in again, but Chairman Carl Ford requested that the county wait as long as possible to call on his services. “This gentleman charges almost $300 per hour, and we’ve got to be good stewards of taxpayers’ money,” Ford said.

He thanked them for speaking Monday and encouraged them to contact their state legislators next. Other budget topics brought up at Monday’s public hearing include: • The recommended hiring of a new inspections director. Local residents Thomas Baudoin, David Garneau and Wayne Bradshaw all spoke about difficulties they have encountered while dealing with the inspections department. Chris Bradshaw and Bryce Beard, both of Salisbury, said the inspections department is making progress toward becoming more business-friendly but could use more guidance in the form of a director. • The recommended privatization of the county’s airport maintenance services. Bill Cannon, a Concord resident, said he chooses to base an aircraft at the Rowan County airport due to its good facilities and the availability and quality of its

Commissioner Jon Barber said he thought it was important for the county to have consistent representation on the same issue. Commissioner Chad Mitchell repeated Ford’s request to delay calling on Fox, but agreed that outside legal counsel was important. “Regardless of whatever decision we eventually made, it was very beneficial for us to have outside counsel to guide us through this entire process and represent us,” said Commissioner Chad Mitchell. During Monday’s regular meeting, commissioners also: • Hired Darryl Blackwelder as the county’s new cooperative extension director. Blackwelder had been serving as interim director. • Recognized Kannapolis City Schools Superintendent Dr. Jo Anne Byerly, who will retire June 30. • Approved a change of address for 3180 E.

Class size also directly impacts the dropout rate, she said, because connecting with a caring adult teacher helps students stay in school. She said that if teaching positions are cut, class sizes will increase. “At China Grove Middle, we are a family,” Chilelli said. “I’m asking you to not break up our family, not reduce our family and not shift our family to other schools.” Concerned parents and teachers continued to speak about the importance of school funding for educating tomorrow’s leaders and giving struggling children hope for the future. Commissioners then addressed the public’s concerns at the end of the hearing, saying they would try their best to help the school system in whatever way they could. Commissioner Tina Hall and Chairman Carl Ford also pointed out that cuts to the schools were not coming from the county, but

federal stimulus money runs out after the next school year. If the state doesn’t increase its funding, the system will have to rely on its small fund balance and likely make large cuts of its own. “This is not the first year our schools have absorbed drastic cuts from the state,” Emerson said. “Because of those cuts, our district exhausted what we could cut and not affect the classroom and other direct services to the children, which is always our focus.” He said he knows that the county probably can’t come up with a $3.3 million increase, but urged the board to dip into its fund balance to provide half and the school board would do the same.

Landis residents band together to save Recreation Department BY SHAVONNE POTTS

spotts@salisburypost.com

LANDIS — A group of residents intent on saving the town Recreation Department have formed a league that will take over the ball programs. Group spokesman Lex Graham, who is also principal of Jackson Park Elementary School in Kannapolis, spoke Monday about the group’s objectives.

Once registration is complete and paperwork is finalized, the group will be called the Southern Rowan Sports League. The group is made up of local parents and people who want to see the ball programs continue. The town board had decided to completely eliminate the recreation program, but talk turned instead to reductions and reorganization. It was the second time during the past several years the

town considered shutting down the Recreation Department. Instead of putting an end to the department, the staff managed to cut the recreation budget by $116,383. Discussion about a league that would take over the programs, which will no longer be funded by the town, arose during one of the board’s budget sessions. Town residents stepped up and began the planning.

The league submitted an outline of duties it would assume, which include buying and providing all necessary equipment, securing team sponsors, establishing league schedules, adhering to the 10:30 p.m. light curfew and having all coaches and volunteers undergo background checks. The town staff would issue pool passes. The pool is a large portion of the recreation budget.

“What you gentleman are doing is what we envisioned and hoped would happen,” said Mayor Dennis Brown. Brown said he felt as though this was a worthwhile endeavor and thanked the league for taking on the project. He told the group the town would pay for the utilities if the group dragged the fields and drew the lines. Graham said now that the the group had approval from

the town it could look into liability insurance. Alderman Tony Hilton said this harkens to the days when the community had a stake in how the programs were run. “I’m glad we’re getting back to our roots,” he said. The board also approved the 2010-2011 budget, which stands at just more than $10.3 million.

Freight train, tractor-trailer collide Shaver Wood Products employees assist in rescue of injured driver from burning truck BY MARK WINEKA

mwineka@salisburypost.com

Three workers from Shaver Wood Products helped to extricate an injured driver from his burning tractor-trailer late Monday morning after it was hit by a westbound freight train. The driver, telling emergency personnel he hurt all over, was taken to Iredell Memorial Medical Center, and one of his rescuers, William Trull, also was taken to the hospital later for treatment of smoke inhalation. All three Shaver Wood Products employees, which included Marco Monrow and a man who asked not to be identified, received oxygen near the turned-over tractor-trailer. Shaver Wood Products is located at the Rowan-Iredell county line just off U.S. 70. The American Carriers tractor-trailer was hauling an empty container box as it exited Shaver Wood Products about 10:25 a.m. The locomotive pushed the tractor-trailer down a bank and onto its side, where the rig caught fire. The three Shaver Wood

Products employees had to make their way to the other side of the stopped freight train to reach the injured driver. “All of them said they were just doing what any human would do,” said John Sharp, supervisor for Rowan County Emergency Medical Services. Cleveland Community Fire Chief Kenny Payne said his department relied on a tanker and pumper to fight the fire. Firefighters’ biggest concern was the blaze reaching several of the tanker cars stopped on the tracks near the wreckage. Fire singed the grass and railroad crossing sign near the tracks, but was contained before getting to the tankers. “It could have been a lot worse,” Payne said. Wayside Fire Department responded with men and equipment, too. Payne said firefighters also were containing a diesel leak from the rig’s side-saddle fuel tank. Rowan and Iredell rescue squads were among the emergency units responding. The N.C. Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.

CONCORD — With commissioners’ modifications and some slight changes in place, the Cabarrus County budget for the 2011 fiscal year is on the agenda for the June 21 Board of Commissioners meeting. During Monday’s agenda work session, the three commissioners present discussed the modifications made since last month’s budget work sessions. Chairman Jay White said Robert Carruth was out of the county on business and Coy Privette was at home with an illness. A total of $75,590 has been cut from the budget since May, and some items have been reallocated. The $700,000 originally budgeted for potential merit pay raises has been slashed to $350,000. Capital improvements to Old Bethel School have been removed from the budget, freeing up $300,000. About $150,000 of that savings has been budgeted for a new roof on the library at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College’s south campus. The budget also includes a $250,000 allocation for retirement incentive funds and $65,000 has been earmarked as a contingency fund in case of jail overcrowding, which Cabarrus county manager John Day said was possible in the near term. Monday’s modifications bring the the proposed general fund to $194.6 million. The budget leaves the property tax unchanged at 63 cents per $100 assessed value. A public hearing will precede the commissioners’ discussion of the budget on June 21. The full text of the proposed budget is on display at Cabarrus County public libraries. It’s also available online at http://www.cabarruscounty.us/ Finance/preliminarybudget2011 .html.

be $1,623,966. The property tax remains at 33 cents per $100 valuation. For the owner of a $150,000 home, the town’s property tax translates to $495 a year, for example. Granite Quarry residents also pay $8 a month for garbage service. Water-sewer service is provided by Salisbury-Rowan Utilities, which has proposed a 5.57 percent increase for all of its residential customers. That would raise the average bill from $68.74 to $72.78 a month. Here are the Granite Quarry budget figures by department: • Police, $451,695;

• Fire, $277,433; • Administration, $357,518; • Maintenance, $121,192; • Parks and Recreation, $61,834; • Environmental, $156,500 for solid waste; recycling, $10,000; and street lights, $31,500; • Projects, $118,300, including $115,000 for the Brookwood Drive culvert; East Rowan Express, $3,000; and Rowan Reads, $300; • Governing body, $11,416. Granite Quarry has a total property valuation of roughly $193 million and vehicle valuation of $22 million. A penny on the tax rate raises $20,855. The town is expecting revenue

reductions on both property and vehicle tax collections compared to 2009-2010. Peters projects property tax revenues of $617,793, down from the $626,755 budgeted during the current fiscal year. Vehicle tax revenues are expected to be $70,425, down from $84,506. But sales tax revenues are projected to increase to $320,400, up from $310,500. Peters said the budget reflects a considerable increase in healthcare costs for employees. The town pays for insurance coverage through a N.C. League of Munici-

Fire damages Kannapolis structure KANNAPOLIS — Police have joined in the investigation of a fire that heavily damaged a commercial structure off South Main Street. The fire occurred around 11 p.m. Saturday in a metal building at 1221 Lee Ave. The building had previously housed a party rental business. Randall Faggart with the Kannapolis Fire Department said the damage was to the interior and roof area. No one was in the building when the fire occurred. Faggart said the cause hasn’t been determined. Investigators from the fire department, the insurance company and Kannapolis Police are working the case. Faggart said it’s unclear whether the building can be repaired. That will depend on a structural engineer. Several area fire departments assisted Kannapolis including Concord, Landis, Odell, Enochville and China Grove.

BRIEFS

The city will dedicate a marker at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday commemorating the founding of the Salisbury Rotary Club 90 years ago this month. The Salisbury Public Art Committee is installing the marker on the Innes Street facade of the Plaza, formerly the Wallace Building, where the club’s first formal meeting was held June 15, 1920. The marker will be part of the city’s History and Art Trail. Rotarians will meet for lunch at City Hall first and ride the trolley to the Plaza for the dedication. Barbara Perry will represent the History and Art Trail at the ceremony and club member Ed Clement will share the history of Rotary. The club formed in response to the need for a new high school in Salisbury. Twenty-two men formed the club and promoted a $500,000 bond issue to build Salisbury High School. In 1925, the club led the drive to raise $120,000 toward the endowment needed to ensure Catawba College’s relocation from Newton to Salisbury. The club has continued to emphasize education, giving $1,000 scholarships to 23 graduating high school seniors this spring. Dianne Scott is president of the Salisbury Rotary Club.

Price High School Alumni to hold national meeting The J. C. Price High School National Alumni Association will convene in Salisbury June 18-20. The reunion comes along with efforts earlier this year to have the former school building placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The project has received the endorsement of the City Council, a positive response from Historic Salisbury Foundation’s Jack Thomson and donations from alumni and community supporters. An update on the project will be a highlight of convention business. The weekend includes activities at the Holiday Inn and the former Price High School site on West Bank Street. The Class of 1960 will also host an event at the

KANNAPOLIS — Mrs. Jeanne Craft Phillips, 88, of Kannapolis, passed away on June 6, 2010, at her home after seven months of illness. She was born Feb. 11, 1922, the daughter of the late Mildred Uzzle Craft and Harry Charles Craft, Sr. of Wilmington. She met her husband of 51 years in Wilmington on a blind date Aug. 9, 1942, and married Isaac Vernell Phillips, Jr. on Dec. 25 1942. Vernell Phillips preceded her in death on May 26, 1993. Two daughters were born of the marriage, Millie Phillips Fink of Concord and Jeanne Harriet Quinn, who died October 16, 1994. She was preceded in death by a brother, Harry Charles Craft, Jr. of Wilmington, on Oct. 21, 2003, and is survived by brothers James E. Craft and wife Jean of Wilmington, Robert C. Craft and wife Doris of Westerville, Ohio. Also surviving are numerous nieces and nephews and her adopted granddaughter and friend, Tonya Pendergrass. Mrs. Phillips was a buyer for Belk children's wear in Wilmington, manager and Buyer for Dell's in Kannapolis, and taught needlepoint, knitting and crocheting at Twin Oaks Needlecraft. She enjoyed many years of teaching Sunday School in her church, Trinity United Methodist Church. Her church family was very important to her and as her health prohibited her from attending, she communicated via phone and card ministry and her outlook on life was pleasant in what she was able to do. There was one special friend who she called each morning, without fail, just to tell her that she loved her and hoped that she had a good day. Fran Black Holland was that special friend. On one occasion, Jeanne had fallen and she was transported to the hospital by ambulance. Once settled in the emergency room, while enduring severe pain, she insisted that her daughter Millie find phone reception and call her dear friend Fran and let her know what was going on and that she would call later in the day. That is a dedicated friend. We thank Fran for her friendship and prayers through the years and her beautiful daughter, Janet Ward Black and husband Gerard Davidson. A special thanks to Dr. George C. Monroe, III, Hospice and Palliative Care of Cabarrus County and her nurses, Tiffany Kee, Susan Boger, Brenda Kee and Sylvia Blackmon, for their love and devotion.

CABARRUS FROM 3A

In other business, commissioners voted 3-to-0 to table Forest Park Crossing, LLCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for a Reservation of Capacity certificate for a proposed apartment project. The Forest Park Crossing low-income housing development was the subject of debate in Kannapolis last month. On May 10, the Kannapolis City Council denied a request by Douglas Development for a $224,450 loan to help construct the 56-unit complex. According to county planner Kassie Watts, the complex is estimated to bring 15 students into local schools. Under the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance, Douglas Development would be required to build the project in phases â&#x20AC;&#x201D; no more than six apartments this year, no more than 11 a year for the next four years and no more than six in 2015. Instead, the developer is asking Cabarrus County for permission to pay APFO fees and apply for permits all at once instead of in phases. According to the developer, the stimulus funds being used to help construct the apartments require that the entire apartment complex be permitted and constructed at once. Developers had requested to have the matter heard June 21. But Commissioner Liz Poole said she wanted more time to review what Kannapolis officials had said. She also said she wanted Carruth and Privette to have time to hear about the matter. The request will be heard again during the July 6 work session. Commissioners voted to hear discussion of new locations for county departments on June 21. The Board of Elections and several other departments may be relocated as a cost-saving measure. Commissioners have discussed completing the top floor of the new Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Administration Building alongside other proposals, including a possible lease-to-own plan involving the old Cabarrus Creamery building.

Commissioner Grace Mynatt said she preferred the latter option. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not in favor of the seventh floor due to the accessibility and parking issues,â&#x20AC;? Mynatt said. Since the potential relocation was first announced, people in the community

have said the seventh floor location might make early voting difficult for the elderly or those with disabilities. Other alternatives, such as using the rotunda of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office building as a voting site, were also discussed.

4 transported to Rowan Regional after vehicle accident

At least four people were taken to the hospital Monday evening after an accident on Mooresville Road involving several vehicles. None of those involved suffered serious injuries, according to emergency radio communications. The accident on Mooresville Road near Sherillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ford Road occurred when a car rear-ended another and pushed that vehicle into a third vehicle. Initial reports indicated as many as four vehicles were involved. Ambulances took at least four people to Rowan Regional Medical Center. Two were children ages 10 and 12. The wreck backed up traffic around 6 p.m. as first responders closed roads to assist the people involved.

The only person who spoke during the public hearing was resident Nadine Cherry, asking that the town continue furloughs with one employee taking a day off once a month until all have had a day off. She also asked the board to reconsider its decision to allow the police department to hire an additional officer. Police Chief Brian McCoy previously requested to fill vacancies, but board members opted not to fill positions in any department. A few of the highlights of the budget sessions included contracting out the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pool operations, reorganizing the Recreation Department and contracting out garbage pickup services. Town staff looked into a company maintaining the town pool at a cost of about $30,900 a year, which is about $16,100 less than it cost the town during the previous fiscal year. A much talked about matter was contracting out the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garbage pickup service. The idea was first discussed at the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s March planning retreat. The board debated the perks of the contracting its garbage, but decided to keep services inhouse. The town will continue to offer its own sanitation services at no additional cost to residents. The board did not increase its taxes, instead the tax rate will remain at 40 cents per $100 of assessed value. The budget also includes a convenience fee of $3 per online credit card transaction and the establishment of fishing permits at Lake Corriher. The permits are expected bring in an additional $15,000 annually. Town Finance Officer Ginger Gibson said the board should see an additional savings once the staff chooses a new health care provider. The town currently receives insurance through the League of Municipalities, which uses Cigna as its provider. The board offered three quotes from Blue Cross Blue Shield, WellPath and UnitedHealthcare. There should be at least $100,000 in savings once the town switches providers. The board will meet at 7 p.m. July 6 for its regular meeting because of the July 4 holiday.

RALEIGH (AP) — The Senate — as expected — has rejected the House’s version of North Carolina’s state government budget for next year, setting up negotiations to find a compromise for competing plans. The Senate voted unanimously Monday night against the $18.9 billion spending plan the House approved late last week. The Senate approved its own $19 billion plan three weeks ago. The formal vote means the two chambers will negotiate differences and create a final plan and get it to Gov. Beverly Perdue to sign before July 1. Senate and House Democrats differ greatly on how to fund the University of North Carolina system next year. They also have differences on tax breaks for small businesses and the use of lottery money for the public schools.

White powder found in envelope at the Capitol RALEIGH (AP) — White powder was discovered in an envelope at North Carolina’s old Capitol building, leading to an evacuation. Gov. Beverly Perdue’s spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson said an administrative assistant to Chief of Staff Britt Cobb opened the envelope shortly before 3 p.m. Monday. Police and Perdue’s staff asked visitors to leave the 170-year-old building, which includes offices for Perdue and the old House and Senate chambers. A hazardous materials team arrived to investigate the envelope. Two workers who handled the letter also were being checked out. Perdue was in the old House chamber when the envelope was found, signing legislation requiring insurance companies to cover the cost of hearing aids for children. Pearson said she knew of no threats associated with the envelope.

Indiana’s public employee pension fund is taking a similar job in North Carolina. North Carolina state Treasurer Janet Cowell announced Monday that Shawn Wischmeier (WISH’-my-er) has been hired as chief investment officer of North Carolina’s retirement systems. He succeeds Patricia Gerrick, who was fired in August after five years on the job. Wischmeier will make a base salary of $320,000. The post is one of the highest paid in state government. He previously worked for Eli Lilly and Co. before going to work on Indiana’s state pension fund. North Carolina’s $68 billion retirement plan covers more than 820,000 people. Cowell wouldn’t disclose why she fired Gerrick, who used to work at Indiana’s pension fund, too.

Lightning kills Tenn. woman before fiance proposed ASHEVILLE (AP) — A Tennessee man says he planned to propose to his girlfriend along a North Carolina hiking trail when she was struck and killed by lightning. Thirty-year-old Richard Butler of Knoxville tells the Asheville Citizen Times that he took Bethany Lott to Max Patch Bald, near Asheville. He says he wanted his 25year-old girlfriend to think the two were on a hike but that he had a ring in his pocket and was planning to ask her to marry him. Heavy rain let up as the two walked toward the bald,

Gov. Perdue invites kids to hearing-aid bill signing RALEIGH (AP) — Children who lobbied the General Assembly to require North Carolina health insurers to cover hearing aids for young people will celebrate their legislative victory with Gov. Beverly Perdue. Perdue planned to sign the legislation Monday afternoon in her office in a public ceremony. The legislature gave final approval May 26 to a bill mandating insurers pay up to $2,500 per ear for hearing aids every three years for children up to 21 years of age. Third-grader Collin Tastet (TASS’-tet) of Greensboro led the lobbying effort and will attend the signing. He has worn hearing aids since he was a baby.

Wounded veterans in N.C. to discuss career program FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — Veterans, councilors and Army officials are meeting in North Carolina to discuss ways to expand a careers program for severely wounded veterans. The three-day conference in Fayetteville started Monday and will include a veterans round-table where they can share ideas about the Army Wounded Warrior Careers Program. The program was started two years ago by the National Organization on Disability. The program helps wounded service members transition into civilian careers. The program already operates in Texas, Colorado and North Carolina. The National Organization on Disability hopes to expand the program to nearly 10 more states in the coming years.

SIU to offer aviation course at N.C. college CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) — Students at a college in the state that’s considered the birthplace of flight soon will be able to get a bachelor’s degree from Southern

Illinois University in aviation management. As part of the deal with North Carolina’s Craven Community College, students first get an associate degree in aviation systems technologies there, then transfer into Southern’s aviation management program. The classes will be taught on weekends. Faculty from Southern will continue to teach upperlevel courses at the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station at Cherry Point, near the community college’s Havelock campus. The college’s main campus is about 30 minutes away in New Bern.

Cleanup to close 3 miles of Blue Ridge Parkway MOUNT PISGAH (AP) — A three-mile stretch of the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina will be closed for a couple of days while debris is removed from ice storms earlier this year. The road will be closed between miles 405 and 408 west of Asheville on Wednesday and Thursday. Workers are trimming trees and removing debris from winter storms. The road is closed longterm between miles 399 and 405 because of rock slide repairs.

RALEIGH (AP) — The security firm formerly known as Blackwater is looking for new ownership, announcing Monday it is pursuing a sale of the company that became renowned and reviled for its involvement with the U.S. government in Iraq and elsewhere. The Moyock, N.C.-based company now called Xe Services announced its decision in a brief statement that gave few details. “Xe’s new management team has made significant changes and improvements to the company over the last 15 months, which have enabled the company to better serve the U.S. government and other customers, and will deliver additional value to a purchaser,” the statement said. Owner and founder Erik Prince said selling the company is a difficult decision, but constant criticism of Xe helped him make up his mind. “Performance doesn’t matter in Washington, just politics,” Prince said in a further statement. The private company became famous as Blackwater, which provided guards and services to the U.S. government in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. It became one of the most respected defense contractors in the world, but

also attracted sharp criticism over its role in those missions. It has been trying to rehabilitate its image since a 2007 shooting in Baghdad that killed 17 people, outraged the Iraqi government and led to federal charges against several Blackwater guards. The accusations later were thrown out of court after a judge found prosecutors mishandled evidence. In March, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin suggested the Pentagon should consider banning Xe from a $1 billion deal to train Afghan police. The Michigan Democrat said he thought the company’s involvement was hindering the U.S. mission in Afghanistan. Prince, who founded the company in 1997 along with former colleagues from the Navy SEALs, said he does not anticipate having any role in Xe after the sale. The process of finding a buyer and completing the deal is expected to take several months, according to spokeswoman Stacy DeLuke. The announcement comes less than three months after Xe sold its aviation division for $200 million to Wood Dale, Ill.-based AAR Corp in a bid to strengthen Xe’s balance sheet.

Nurse faces murder charge in nursing home death CHAPEL HILL (AP) — A nurse has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of a patient at a North Carolina nursing home. WRAL-TV reported Monday that Angela Almore of Cary was also charged with six counts of patient abuse. She is being held on a $500,000 bond. It wasn’t immediately known if she has a lawyer. Almore is charged in the February death of 84-year-old Rachel Holliday, an Alzheimer’s patient at The Britthaven of Chapel Hill. Tests at the time found that nine Alzheimer’s patients were given painkillers. Holliday and several others weren’t supposed to be receiving pain medication. A medical examiner’s report concluded Holliday died of pneumonia, but that morphine was a contributing factor.

but more bad weather returned. Butler says there were three lightning strikes. The last one hit the couple. Butler suffered third-degree burns. Paramedics declared Lott, also of Knoxville, dead at the scene. There was no answer for a number listed for Butler on Monday.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Google representatives on Monday said the search engine company has not broken any laws with the collection of data for its mapping service, after Connecticut’s attorney general pressed the company to “come clean with the American public.” Authorities fear the information gathered for Google’s Street View service, which provides pictures of neighborhoods, may violate privacy laws. Last month, Google acknowledged it had mistakenly collected data over public Wi-Fi networks in more than 30 countries. Police in Germany and Australia already have launched their own investigations into the matter. “As we have said before, this was a mistake,” said a Google spokeswoman in an email statement to the Associated Press. “Google did nothing illegal and we are working with the relevant authorities to answer their questions and concerns.” The attorneys general of Connecticut and Missouri have both sent letters to Google executives asking for clarification on the information collected for Street View. Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal held a press conference Monday urging the search engine company to reveal whether it had illegally collected data from state personal and business wireless computer networks. “People have legitimate expectations that private in-

It was not immediately clear if all the women shot were restaurant employees or customers. The shooting began shortly after the restaurant had closed. A series of 911 calls released by police starting record breathless Spanishlanguage callers urging dis-

Two other victims, 32year-old Maysel Figueroa and 47-year-old Lavina Fonseca, lived next door to each other in Hialeah. People inside Fonseca’s home refused to answer the door, and a neighbor said Figueroa had lived in her small cottage for only about six months. Regular customers in the city, which has a large CubanAmerican population, gathered in shock outside the restaurant on Monday. “They are good people,” said Valentin Perez, 52, who visits the restaurant for his Cuban coffee every morning. Octavio Guzman, another customer, said the restaurant workers are always generous with those who can’t afford a meal. “You tell anyone here, ’I’m hungry and I don’t have money,’ and they give it to you,” Guzman said.

Hernandez’s agent, Mike Maulini, told the Spanish-language newspaper El Nuevo Herald that the family does not know what caused Regalado to shoot seven women. “This has taken everyone by surprise,” Maulini said. Regalado came to Miami from Cuba in 2006, he said. “We do not know what might have happened. He was a good kid. Since he arrived he has tried not to depend on his brother and do his own work,” Maulini. In a statement, Hernan-

Hurry!” said one terrified woman in Spanish to the dispatcher. “That man killed them.” A male caller in Spanish is heard on another recording at 10:11 p.m. breathing rapidly and telling the dispatcher, “He entered the Yoyito Restaurant and began shooting like crazy.” He tells the dispatcher that the man and a woman had argued before the shooting started. “They were arguing out in front of the restaurant ... he killed the girl,” the man says. A spokeswoman for Jackson Memorial Hospital declined to release any information about the three women being treated there because all had requested privacy. No contact information for one survivor, Yasmine Dominguez, could be found. There was no answer at the Hialeah Gardens mobile home of the third, 55-year-old Mayra Delacaridad.

HIALEAH, Fla. (AP) — A gunman shot and killed his wife outside a South Florida restaurant where she worked, then targeted women inside and killed three others before committing suicide, police said Monday. Police said 38-year-old Gerardo Regalado bypassed at least two men when he fired at the women inside. Three women were hospitalized in critical condition, Hialeah police Detective Eddie Rodriguez said. “He went straight for the women,” Rodriguez said. Regalado is the half brother of former baseball star Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez. The shooting began Sunday night in a parking lot outside the Yoyito Restaurant in Hialeah, where Regalado of Coral Gables was seen arguing with Liazan Molina, Rodriguez said. According to Florida marriage records, the couple married in 2007. According to police, Regalado shot and killed Molina, 24, then entered the restaurant and fired on six women inside. One employee called her brother after the shooting, saying she had been shot and was bleeding. Felix Fuentes said his sister, Ivet Coronado, told him to “please call 911.” He said the 36-year-old woman was recovering Monday from surgery for gunshot wounds to her chest and one of her

Perfect time for fishing on High Rock Fishing on High Rock Lake has been excellent over the past week. Water levels remain near full with the water generally clear in most areas. Largemouth bass have been hungry and hitting great. At the recent FLW tournament, more than 100 boaters participated, with 58 fishermen bringing in a full five-fish limit. They weighed in a total of just over 1,000 pounds of largemouth bass. The hot baits reported were jigs on structure, with crank baits a close second. Places to try for a lunker largemouth bass include the Bringle Ferry Road bridge near Tamarac Marina, focusing on the four corners of the rip-rap rocks and also working the bridge pilings. On Abbott’s Creek, try the submerged road bed that runs parallel to N.C. 8. The concrete support pillars are located in 25 feet of water marked by a danger buoy in the center of the channel. On Flat Swamp Creek, work the submerged rocky points in the “S” curve during the day. Deep diving crank baits are a good choice there. In Panther Creek, early mornings are finding some top water action on the right side as you enter the mouth of the creek. Look toward the small bushy islands and focus on the points, using Pop-R’s or other stick baits. In Crane Creek at the Goodman Lake Road bridge, work the danger buoy that is marking a large rock pile. Jigs and lizards are producing good fish on the dropoff and rocky structure. For those bass fishermen who would like to know of a good spot that is hard to find unless shown by someone in the “know,” try the following GPS coordinates. N 35 37.541 W 80 16.327 This location has a large rock pile, 25 feet long, 25 feet wide, 4 feet tall. There are large rocks, several stumps near and around open water toward the channel. With a very large stump toward the cove point, this is an excellent crank bait location. Crappie have been hitting well lakewide. Good-sized fish are schooled up and holding off dropoffs and deep water structure. Minnows are the standby bait although a variety of jigs are working well also. Fish can be caught throughout the day if you can brave the heat, but mornings and evenings are usually best. Striped bass continue to hit regularly in main channel portions of High Rock Lake. Fish ranging from 5 to 12 pounds are common. Most fishermen are trolling buck tailed jigs on a double drop rig with a long leader. Catfish are pulling the string of most anyone who wants to give them a try. Channels weighing up to 10 pounds are common with blue cats ranging over 10 pounds seen regularly. Flathead catfish are very active, with catches over 20 pounds seen weekly.

A new pier from closed bridge The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has opened the Chowan River Bridge Access Area, a fishing access area and renovated boat ramp off the closed Chowan River Bridge. The project was funded from sales of the Coastal Recreational Fishing License. The site, off N.C. 17 in Chowan County, features fixed and floating docks, new concrete apron, new ramps, bulkhead and an improved, paved parking lot. The old highway bridge, which has been closed since 1999, has been repurposed as a fishing pier, with a restroom building and vending area. “The accessible fishing area and renovated boating access area at the Chowan River Bridge provide boaters and anglers with quality access to a very popular waterway,” said Erik Christofferson, chief of the Division of Engineering services. “We are thrilled to have received the CRFL funding to make this project happen, which increases opportunities for anglers and recreational boaters.”

Boating classes Upcoming boating education classes in Rowan County that will be instructed by N.C. Wildlife Officers include: July 10 and Aug. 1 at the Rowan County Rescue Squad, 1140 Julian Road. These are open to the public and free of charge. For more information, go to www.ncwildlife.org and click boating education or call 919-707-0031. You can e-mail Sgt. Anthony Sharum of the N.C. Wildlife Resources at huntfishguy66@aol.com.

Woodleaf man in on outdoorsman challenge

SUBMITTED PHOTO

Shalee Athey, 11, caught a 40-pound black drum the last weekend of May on a family fishing trip to Chesapeake Bay, Va. She also caught two sharks and some flounder on her first trip to the Chesapeake Bay with her parents, Ernie and Denise Athey of Salisbury. The black drum was caught near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel in a 28-foot Grady White boat. ‘Shalee loves the outdoors and enjoys hunting and fishing,’ her mother said in an e-mail to the Post.

Fishing with Capt. Gus

Lake Norman boating, fishing questions answered Everyone seems to have questions related to boating and fishing on Lake Norman. Some of the most frequently asked questions are addressed below. • Up north, we had a closed season on bass fishing. What are the regulations on Lake Norman? Lake Norman does not have a closed fishing season. Anglers can fish year round for any species, except grass carp. • I do not have a boat. Where can I fish from the shore on Lake Norman? Public fishing is allowed at the McGuire Nuclear Plant off N.C. 73, the Marshall Steam Plant off N.C. 150 and at the Lake Norman State Park, near Troutman. • What am I likely to catch on Lake Norman? Largemouth bass, spotted bass, stripers, catfish, white perch, carp, crappie and bream. • How big are the fish in Lake Norman? Sizes vary. An 85-pound state record blue catfish was caught a few years ago. There are some who suspect that a blue cat weighing more than 100 pounds is lurking near the dam. Stripers average 5 to 6 pounds. In the past, 20- and 30-pounders were caught. The state record, a 6 pound, 5-ounce spotted bass was caught in Lake Norman. • Can I catch trout, walleye and white bass? High summer water temperatures, combined with low

levels of dissolved oxygen, make it all but impossible for trout and walleye to survive in Lake Norman. White bass used to be plentiful, but have practically disappeared in recent years. • Is fishing better above the N.C. 150 Bridge? Not necessarily. There are times when Ramsey, Reed, Mountain and Hagers creeks produce a lot of fish. Also, both hot water discharges are located south of the N.C. 150 Bridge. Many people fish the north end of the lake, not because there are more fish, but because there is less open water and it’s easier to fish on windy days. • When is the best time to fish? As a rule, fish bite best early in the morning and again just before dark. However, there are many occasions when fish feed aggressively throughout the day. Spring is a preferred time because fish are hungry and in shallow water. Night fishing is also popular in the summer. Since stripers like cold water, winter is a good time to fish for them. • I thought striped bass were a saltwater fish? They are, but they swim up freshwater rivers to spawn. Stripers are able to adapt and can live in freshwater lakes when conditions are right. Most landlocked striped bass, like those on Lake Norman, are stocked by wildlife agencies • Who needs a fishing li-

cense? Anyone 16 and over who fishes in public waters is required to have a valid fishing license. • Where can I get a North Carolina fishing license? Licenses can be purchased at most area bait shops and at department stores that sell fishing tackle. They are also available at www.ncwildlife. org, by phone at 888-248-6834, or by mail at N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, 1751 Varsity Drive, Raleigh, N.C. 27606. • How do I get help in an emergency if my boat is in a dead cell phone area? The old stand-by is to wave your arms, a flag, shirt, etc. to a passing vessel. Another option is to install a marine band VHF radio. Channel 16 is monitored by the Lake Patrol, Coast Guard Auxiliary, N.C. Wildlife Officers and other boaters equipped with VHF radios. • I see signs and buoys that say “No Wake.” How fast can a boat go in a “No Wake” zone? “No wake” means, “No Wake.” If you can see a wake behind the boat, you are going too fast. Wakes might vary with the way the boat is loaded. Some boats might produce a wake traveling at only a few miles per hour. 

Frankie Wells of Woodleaf has qualified to compete in Field & Stream’s Total Outdoorsman Challenge Regional Championship on Saturday at the Country Music Association Festival in Nashville. The top three finishers in Nashville will advance to the Total Outdoorsman’s final in Springfield, Mo., Sept. 9-11. In the finals, 16 of the nation’s top outdoorsmen will go head-to-head in seven outdoor skill challenges that will determine the winner. Events are fly-fishing, bass fishing, rifle, shotgun, endurance, archery and ATV handling. The winner will be declared Field & Stream’s Total Outdoorsman Champion and win $25,000 and a trip to the 2010 CMA Awards. “Total outdoorsmen have been training for this their whole lives,” said Anthony Licata, editor of Field & Stream. “After the money and great prize package, the real reward for Total Outdoorsmen competitors is the chance to show their passion and dedication for hunting, fishing and the outdoors.” Now in its seventh year, the Field & Stream Total Outdoorsman Challenge presented by Mobil 1 is widely celebrated as the country’s premier competition for sportsmen. Competitors in the Nashville event garnered their invitation to the regional competition after competing in local qualifier events held at Bass Pro Shops around the country. In April, thousands of outdoorsmen vied for the chance to compete at one of the four regional qualifying events held this June. Of those, only 200 scored well enough to continue on, representing the best of the best outdoorsmen in the country. Those who were unable to attend a local qualifier event still have a shot at going to the Championship: Field & Stream is accepting submissions through July 5 for a sole “wildcard” competitor from online entries at www.totaloutdoorsmanchallenge.com.

Wildlife in North Carolina magazine looking for your best outdoors photos RALEIGH — Wildlife in North Carolina magazine is welcomes entries for its sixth annual nature and wildlife photo competition. “Last year, we received more than 8,800 entries — by far our most ever, and almost too many for our staff to handle,” said Greg Jenkins, editor of the national-award-winning monthly. “In response, we are reducing the number of photos that an individual can enter in a single category from three to two.” Founding partner, the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences, returns as a cosponsor, as does the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation. Great Outdoor Provision Co. returns as a corporate sponsor. Another important co-sponsor returning for the second year is UNCTV, with entertaining and educational programming about the state’s wonderful natural resources. “These sponsors are valuable resources on so many levels,” Jenkins said. “The museum is a fantastic place to learn about the state’s wildlife and habitats. Our outstanding state parks are ideal places for photography, and park rangers can give photographers expert advice on the best subjects and the best times and places to get that ideal image.” All winners will be published in the January 2011 issue of Wildlife in North Carolina magazine, with the grand prize appearing as the cover illustration. Thanks to exhibition sponsor, JW Photo Labs of Raleigh, the winners will be exhibited at the Museum of Natural Sciences and at other science museums and wildlife education centers across the state in 2011. The deadline for entry is Sept. 1. Rules, more information and entry forms are available at www.ncwildlife.org. Since 1947, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission has been dedicated to the conservation and sustainability of the state's fish and wildlife resources through research, scientific management, wise use, and public input. The Commission is the state regulatory agency responsible for the enforcement of fishing, hunting, trapping and boating laws and provides programs and opportunities for wildlife-related educational, recreational and sporting activities.

Paternity shock haunts father mother had the affair, and I am very curious just what kind of man my biological father was. I am debating whether I should tell my grown children about this. Do I have an obligation to tell my children? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Shocked Dear Shocked: You have an obligation to live an authentic life. Your children deserve to know the basic truth about you (and about their own genetic history) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even if the truth presents challenges youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sure how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll handle. Your children also deserve to know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in your life, certainly if it is causing you ongoing angst. They may assist you in trying to track down other biological family members, if you choose to do this (it should be your choice to make). This journey could lead all of you in fascinating directions. A therapist could help guide you through this. You should receive ongoing support. Dear Amy: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost vacation time again, and I would like your opinion on sleeping arrangements at a resort. A two-bedroom unit is being rented. Each room has a queensize bed. Is it appropriate for a 16year-old girl and her 14-yearold brother to share a bed, especially when other arrangements are possible? I feel that the daughter should share a bed with her mother, and the son with his father. The parents of these children feel that it is OK for their teenagers to share a bed for a week.

Dear Concerned: I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea for opposite gender teenagers to share a bed. At 14 and 16, these kids are in a phase where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still figuring out who they are; they deserve a measure of privacy while they do so. Most hotels are happy to bring a rollaway bed into a room for a small fee each night. That would certainly be my solution. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say what your relationship to this family is, but this issue falls pretty squarely into the â&#x20AC;&#x153;none of your businessâ&#x20AC;? category. Unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asked to weigh in, you should let this family figure out its own sleeping arrangements. Dear Amy: When my wife and I go out to dinner with our two daughters, I always pay the bill and usually leave a 15 percent tip. My daughters get really upset and say I should leave at least 20 percent. I do not think my daughters should tell me how much tip to leave when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m paying. What do you think? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Richard Dear Richard: I agree with your daughters and with you. You should leave 20 percent. Tell your daughters they should take their old man to dinner once in a while and show him how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done. TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

There are currently 3.6 billion credit cards in circulation. Every few years, these cards expire and are replaced by new, active cards. Add all those spent gift cards that are destined for the landfill and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking MARY about one HUNT big pile of worthless plastic. I laughed when I read a recent article at CreditCards.com on imaginative ways to use an old credit card for fun and recycling joy. I got some great ideas, too. I am going to try some of these, and I bet you will want to, as well. â&#x20AC;˘ iPhone stand. What iPhone owner doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a right and proper stand for the device? After all, you want your hands free to eat popcorn when you decide to watch a full-length movie on it. All you need are a couple of expired credit cards and a pair of scissors to make a sturdy stand. The best part is this stand can be stored flat for easy traveling, which makes it con-

venient for entertaining children on long crosscountry flights. â&#x20AC;˘ Battery cover. You know that little flat piece of plastic that covers the battery on your camera, phone or remote control? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to keep the battery protected, clean and dry. But often that little cover slips away and gets lost. I have no idea where it goes, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a common problem. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry. You easily can craft a replacement cover from an old credit card. Full satisfaction guaranteed! â&#x20AC;˘ Earrings. This is just way too funny â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and amazingly beautiful! I think I need a pair of credit card earrings. Simply cut out the shape you desire, and glue the pieces back to back so both sides are the â&#x20AC;&#x153;rightâ&#x20AC;? side. Add ear wires and jump rings and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re set. Decorative gift cards make especially good-looking earrings. â&#x20AC;˘ Cord organizer. If the cords from your computer, scanner, printer, mouse, lamp and other electronic devices are all jumbled up under your desk, take heart. You can create a cable organizer from an old credit card! Simply punch

holes along one of the long sides with a hole puncher. Then cut from the edge into each hole so you can slip the problem cables into the card. This will keep the cords straight. If you have many cables, simply glue several cards together. â&#x20AC;˘ Guitar picks. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really expensive, but musicians will tell you that guitar picks disappear, and when you need one, you usually donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have time to run to the music store to pick one up. An old, expired credit card is made of the perfect material to make a new one. All you need is a Sharpie and scissors. Trace the shape, and cut it out. Let the jam session begin.

5 clever uses for old credit cards

R124210

Dear Amy: My widowed mother passed away some time ago when she was in her mid90s. About two years before she died, when I was in my mid60s, she confided in me that she had an affair many years ago with a man who left this country shortly thereafter, and that he was my ASK biological faAMY ther. No one else knew of the affair, including her husband (my father) who I always assumed was my biological father. This left me in a complete state of shock. Apparently my mother felt it was important that I knew of this before she died. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still not sure whether I am better off knowing it. The father who raised me was a very poor husband and father, and a terrible role model.

FEDERAL LEGISLATION PROPOSED

Raise age limit for drivers? I

s it time to adopt a one-size-fits-all approach to licensing young drivers? Some in Congress think so. Senate and House proposals would raise the minimum unrestricted driving age to 18 and require all states to follow the same licensing guidelines or risk losing federal road funds. Proponents say this would reduce teen highway deaths, while imposing uniformity on regulations that vary from state to state. Reducing teen accidents is an urgent goal. In 2008, 2,684 drivers aged 16 to 20 died in traffic accidents nationwide, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It’s hard to dispute the argument that raising the age limit to 18 would almost certainly reduce that toll — just as raising the age limit to 19 or 21 would decrease it even more. But Congress should delay heading down this road, lest it create more unnecessary bureaucracy to coerce states into adopting legislation similar to what many are already moving toward on their own. For starters, let’s note that age alone doesn’t offer accident immunity. A 17-yearold who has completed a driver safety course, with a year or more of supervised experience behind the wheel, is likely to be a safer driver than an 18-year-old who lacks such training or is less mature. Also, North Carolina and other states have already adopted graduated licensing programs that restrict the hours that 16-year-olds can drive, as well as the young passengers that can accompany them. Those measures are helping to save lives, which is why states have embraced them without threat of federal sanctions. In fact, the success of those programs is part of the impetus behind the move to impose federal regulations. It’s also worth noting that a societal shift appears to be under way in which the driver’s license is losing its luster as a rite of passage for 16-year-olds. As reported earlier this year, federal data shows that only 30 percent of 16-year-olds got licenses in 2008, compared with 44.7 percent in 1988. While it’s too early to proclaim this a longterm trend, the driving age does show signs of shifting on its own. This could be the result of several factors, including the graduated licensing requirements that make it harder to obtain a license. With the economic uncertaintly, some families also may be reluctant to add young drivers to their insurance policies or spend money on an additional vehicle. Meanwhile, the growth of social media means teens have more options for virtual mobility without the use of vehicles. Reducing the accident rate for teen drivers should be a national priority. However, it’s one that can be accomplished through the efforts of individual states, without federal legislation. What works in Massachusetts may not fit Montana. For teen drivers, the best defense is graduated licensing, driver safety courses and many miles of supervised experience behind the wheel.

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

“Be a good listener. Your ears will never get you in trouble.” — Frank Tyger

Moderately confused

ASHINGTON — When a long-ago South Carolina legislator described his state as “too small to be a republic and too large to be an insane asylum,” he might have added, “but just perfect for a bordello!” Perhaps it is the humidity. Throw in a cocktail, stir with human nature, and you’ve got that ol’ fleeting magic. But what’s with all these kissy-boys spilling the beans on their paramours? Whither chivalry? Whither, alas, manliness? The women in these romantic imbroglios are steel magnolias to the weeping KATHLEEN willows of their undoubtedPARKER ly regrettable (and perhaps forgettable) dalliances. No one needs to be reminded of Gov. Mark Sanford’s tearful confession of infidelity with his Argentine soul mate. Nowex-wife Jenny Sanford has turned his betrayal into a cottage industry of feminine empowerment. She’s written a book, appeared on talk shows and become the ex officio leading lady of the tragedy formerly known as victimhood. I am woman, hear me call my lawyer. In a twist that would be ironic if it weren’t so overpoweringly icky, Sanford protegee and Jenny favorite-for-governor, Nikki Haley, is essentially being branded a harlot by two men claiming to have “known” her. In politics as in love, timing is everything. These alleged trysts apparently came to mind just as Haley was leading the Republican pack in the final countdown to Tuesday’s primary. Haley, a married mother of two, has denied the claims of both men. One is for-

mer Haley political consultant Will Folks, who for a time was also Governor Sanford’s director of communications. The other is lobbyist Larry Marchant Jr., who until recently was working for Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, also a contender for the governorship. Like Folks, Marchant claims to have had an “inappropriate physical relationship” with Haley. He felt he had to tell because, oh, he just had to! Bauer, who paid Marchant $50,000 in consulting fees (before firing him), has challenged Haley to a polygraph test to prove she has been faithful to her husband. Seriously, Mr. Hawthorne? To outsiders, this is the sort of delicious material HALEY that allows comedy writers to sleep in. To South Carolinians, these unfolding events are a blight, a pox, a Deepwater Horizon of gushing shame. It bears mentioning that the players in this little drama are not equals. I’ve known Folks, a take-no-prisoners political blogger, for years and take him at his word when he says that a story was about to break about his alleged relationship. Recently married and a new father, he says he was attempting damage control when he broke the story himself. I don’t condone or agree with his decision, but he’s no Marchant, whose earnest confession reeks of the self-service to which he has now consigned himself. I also know Haley and take her at her word when she denies the allegations. But let’s get at the deeper truth and ask: Is this really where we want our politics to

go? Are only perfect people acceptable for public service? As Bill Bennett once put it to me: “If perfection is our standard, then no one gets to talk.” This obsession with people’s personal lives, including the hand-wringing analysis of Al and Tipper Gore’s marriage, has turned us into a nation of purse-lipped old maids. No offense to purses. I’ve resisted commenting on the Gores’ decision to split after 40 years of marriage because, what possibly could I know? Apologies to the deeply conflicted, but the Gores’ divorce has no bearing whatsoever on my life. I reluctantly decided to weigh in on the Haley story because therein lie issues of more general consequence. This isn’t only politics at its worst. It’s a persecution, a witch hunt, a political rape. “All I know to do is fight,” said Haley by phone Friday. “Just stay strong and keep a smile on your face. ... I refuse to let this distract me.” Of greater personal concern than what may or may not have happened between consenting, if misguided, adults is, what has happened to men? The South has managed through the past 150 years of regional shame to cling to the one admirable trait of its antebellum past: the Gentle Man. He, too, apparently is endangered. With notable exceptions, the once-honorable protector of women’s virtue is just another gossip-monger. Perhaps this is the legacy of our egalitarian times. When men succumb to their inner Oprah, weeping and telling like slumber-party girls, it may be time for the stronger sex to lead. • • • Kathleen Parker’s e-mail address is kathleenparker@washpost.com.

All varieties of farmers valuable to community Agriculture is an important industry that provides the food we eat which gives us energy to work and have fun. Agriculture production happens in many different ways and takes on many shapes and sizes. I am the mentor farmer at the Elma C. Lomax Incubator Farm, the beginning farmer program that is a partnership between Cabarrus County government and North Carolina Cooperative Extension with partial funding by the Cannon Foundation. The program at the Incubator Farm focuses on organic food production and strives to teach the most sustainable methods of farming. I have been farming organically for over 12 years, and being friendly to our environment without the use of chemicals is important to me. It is farming no different than our grandparents did. A recent article quoted me as saying “I’m not one of those farmers that just throws out chemicals.” This comment was taken out of context, and I apologize for any confusion, frustration or concern that this article created in the agriculture community here within the county. The sustainable agriculture program would not be where it is right now without the support of farmers in the agriculture community, most of whom all employ conventional production standards. The work they do is valuable and also needed. We all work very hard to produce the food needs of our community. I would personally like to invite any and all conventional farmers to the Elma C. Lomax Incubator Farm to share their knowledge with the beginning farmers. This is exactly what I am doing on a daily basis without any compensation. We all need to work together, and I pledge my support to do so. — Brad Hinckley

K, it’s like this. There are two kinds of people — those who recycle and those who don’t and never will. Everybody, rich or poor, pays a water bill, with or without added fees or incentives. We use more, we pay more. As a proponent of recycling for many years, it is now becoming evident to me that the city has been covering up more than garbage in the landfill. In 1996, when we were guaranteed an easy practical solution to back-yard pickup, the cost was $1.44 per month — a flat fee. Today, the budgeted $445,000 cost all goes to the city contractor. By its own admission, the city has not reclaimed a single dime on the sale of recycled materials. Now, we are cutting back on limb collection to once a month. What a mess that will add to the curbside carpet, tires and toilets on the street corners. Let’s copy our idol, Greenville, S.C., which has an award-winning center where residents can exchange unwanted items. So, what does it take to make our good German, Scotch-Irish citizens change their feeble minds about recycling? Give them a good reason or get into their pocketbooks. Could the program pay for itself or even make money? Heaven forbid. Let “the people” do what they will with their recyclables and save money, not to mention salaries, cost of bins, trucks, gas, etc. The city’s $1.1 million deficit would be abolished in two years. What is the solution? Simple. 1. Don’t buy or use plastic water bottles, styrofoam cups, “to go” boxes or “plastic silverware,” as the fast-food worker called it recently. Refuse plastic bags. 2. Conserve paper. Stop junk mail. Sell your own aluminum and metal. Multiply what you use daily by the population of little ol’ Salisbury or the whole green Earth. 3. Continue to pay the rising city fee hooked onto your water bill, whether you ever use your bin or even have one to sit on your porch for a pot holder or kitty litter. 4. And the right answer: Reward those who recycle. No recycling fee for simple water users. Use “pay as you throw” fees or pay by weight. Make people responsible for the litter in their lives and what they leave for posterity. We need creative, cost-effective ideas, not punishment for recycling; not new and higher fees. Our city’s current policy is outdated, and the increased fees are unfounded. We already pay too much. Revolt, rethink, regroup, but don’t make us not recycle. • • • Clyde Overcash lives in Salisbury.

BP says it plans to replace oil containment cap in Gulf with bigger, better device next month

Journalist Helen Thomas retires amid uproar over remarks WASHINGTON (AP) — Helen Thomas, the opinionated White House correspondent who used her seat in the front row of history to grill 10 presidents and often exasperate them, lost her storied perch Monday in a flap over calling on Israelis to get “out of Palestine.” Thomas, 89, who made her name as a bulldog for United Press International and was a pioneer for women in journalism, abruptly retired as a columnist for Hearst News Service. The announcement, in a terse statement by Hearst, came after videotaped remarks she made to an independent filmmaker spread virally through the Internet. She apologized, but White House spokesman Robert Gibbs denounced her comments as “offensive and reprehensible.” Her press corps colleagues with the White House Correspondents Association issued a rare admonishment calling them “indefensible.” Thomas joined UPI in 1943 and began covering the White House for the wire service in 1960. Fiercely competitive, she became the first female White House bureau chief for a wire service when UPI named her to the position in 1974. She was also the first female officer at the National Press Club, where women had once been barred as members. “Helen was just a vacuum cleaner about information,” said author Kay Mills, who took dictation from Thomas as a young UPI staffer and wrote “A Place in the News: From the Women’s Pages to the Front Page.”

3 dead, others injured after natural gas line explodes CLEBURNE, Texas (AP) — Officials say three people have been killed and several others injured after a natural gas line exploded in rural north Texas. Officials say workers apparently hit the underground line south of Dallas while digging on Monday. Johnson County Emergency Management Coordinator Jack Snow says about six people were transported by air or ground ambulance to hospitals. Laura Harlin is a resident of nearby Granbury and she

says the explosion made a “huge rumbling” and sounded like a tornado even from eight miles away. The explosion caused a massive fire that sent orange flames and black smoke streaming into the air.

Intent of men who aimed to join terrorists was clear NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Two New Jersey men accused of trying to join a terrorist group in Somalia intended to commit acts of violence even though their plans appeared haphazard, a federal prosecutor said Monday. “Sophistication is not a measure of danger,” U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said. “Their intentions were described pretty clearly. They were watching certain videos and interested in what certain people were saying and advocating.” Mohamed Mahmood Alessa and Carlos Eduardo Almonte made their first court appearance Monday in Newark. Alessa, 20, and Almonte, 24, were arrested Saturday night at New York’s Kennedy Airport as they prepared to fly to Egypt and then to Somalia, authorities said. They are charged with conspiring to kill, maim and kidnap persons outside the United States by joining alShabab, a group designated by the U.S. in 2008 as a terrorist organization. Alessa and Almonte appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo on Monday with their hands and feet shackled. Both have dark curly hair and beards. Alessa had several cuts and bruises on his forehead.

Apple says iPhone will be thinner, have higher-res screen SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The next iPhone comes out June 24 and will have a higher-resolution screen, longer battery life and thinner design. CEO Steve Jobs opened Apple Inc.’s annual conference for software developers Monday by demonstrating the iPhone 4, which will cost $199 or $299 in the U.S. with a two-year AT&T contract, depending on the capacity. The iPhone 3GS, which debuted last year, will still be available, for $99.

Some of the mystery surrounding Apple’s latest creation had been punctured in April, when the tech blog Gizmodo bought a lost iPhone prototype for $5,000 and posted pictures of the unit. Apple demanded it back, and authorities have been investigating whether a Gizmodo editor broke any laws. “Stop me if you’ve already seen this,” Jobs said Monday as he started his demo. The iPhone 4 is sleeker and more advanced than the original iPhone that came out in 2007. Like the iPhone 3GS, it comes in black or white, though it has a more angular look. Its front and back are covered with glass, and it is rimmed with stainless steel that acts as part of the phone’s antenna.

Clam boat pulls up canisters off NY, crew sickened BOSTON (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard says a Massachusetts-based fishing boat dredging for clams off New York has pulled up 10 canisters, including one that broke open and caused two crew members to experience blistering and difficulty breathing. The Coast Guard says the two crew members from the ESS Pursuit were taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford, Mass. One has been transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital, and the other has been released. The Coast Guard says it was not immediately clear what chemical was involved, but authorities were investigating. The agency issued a rare order to the vessel to return to the New Bedford port Monday. The canisters were dropped back into the ocean. Officials are working to decontaminate the vessel and its four other crew members and to clearly mark the area south of Long Island where the containers were found.

Progressive leaders upset with White House WASHINGTON (AP) — Progressive activists who helped elect Barack Obama president complained Monday that the administration and congressional Democrats have been too timid and too willing to compromise. Even though Obama’s major first-term achieve-

WHERE DREAMS MEET SKILLS...

ment — an overhaul of the nation’s health care system — passed without a single Republican vote, progressive leaders who gathered in Washington criticized the president for failing to create a government-run insurance option to compete with private industry. They faulted Obama for the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the slow pace in repealing the ban on gays serving in the military and last year’s economic stimulus package, which they described as inadequate at $787 billion. They also criticized his handling of the Gulf oil spill. “The White House has been an uncertain trumpet,” said Robert Borosage, a codirector of the Campaign for America’s Future, a progressive organization. “The administration’s reforms were too often too timid from the start and too readily compromised along the way.” Although leaders still spoke with admiration for Obama, it was clear he’s not as popular with unions, bloggers and other progressives.

Chrysler recalls almost 700,000 Jeeps, minivans DETROIT (AP) — Chrysler is recalling almost 600,000 minivans and Jeep Wranglers in the United States and another 100,000 elsewhere because of brake or wiring problems that could create safety problems, the company and federal regulators said Monday. Chrysler said it is recalling 288,968 Jeep Wranglers from the 2006 through 2010 model years due to a potential brake fluid leak. It also is recalling 284,831 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country

minivans from the 2008 and 2009 model years because a wiring problem can cause a fire inside the sliding doors. Another 76,430 Wranglers and 34,143 minivans are being recalled in Canada, Mexico and other international markets, Chrysler said. Neither problem has caused any crashes or injuries, Chrysler Group LLC said.

U.S. military in Iraq detains soldier linked to leaked video WASHINGTON (AP) — The Army has detained a 22year-old soldier in Baghdad in connection with the leak of a military video that shows Apache helicopters gunning down unarmed men in Iraq, including two journalists, defense officials said Monday. Army Spc. Bradley Manning of Potomac, Md., now being held in Kuwait pending the results of an investigation, was the third suspected leaker known to have been apprehended under the Obama administration. “This is a startling pattern for anyone who’s been watching the field for a while,” said Steven Aftergood, a director of the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists. “It certainly shows that this administration is aggressively pursuing leakers” and that “there is essentially zero tolerance for public disclosure of classified information,” he said. Meanwhile, a convicted computer hacker from California claimed he alerted authorities about Manning after meeting him online, calling the young military analyst “a good kid who got a little mixed up.”

Tips pour in to officers searching for missing 7-year-old PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Twenty-two state, local and federal agencies are following up on more than 1,200 tips in the search for a 7year-old Portland boy who has been missing for four days. Kyron Horman disappeared from Skyline Elementary School on Friday. Multnomah County sheriff’s deputies and volunteers have been searching the densely wooded area near the pastoral school since then. On Monday morning, deputies and FBI agents posted about 40 yards from the school stopped approaching cars and asked passengers whether they were at the school Friday and had any information about Kyron. Multnomah County sheriff’s Capt. Jason Gates described the variety of tips as “leads that aren’t as exciting, and other leads that are more prevalent.” “We need more,” he said at a news conference Monday. “Every tip, no matter how insignificant you think it is, could be the one we need.”

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — As officials reported a gradual increase in the amount of oil being captured from the spewing wellhead at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, BP PLC said Monday that it plans next month to replace the cap collecting the crude with a slightly bigger device. The newer cap will “provide a better, tighter fit” than the current one collecting roughly one-third to three-fourths of the oil gushing daily from the sea floor, company spokesman Robert Wine told The Associated Press. But it will also allow the oil now being collected to again spew out into the Gulf during the changeover. The oil began gushing after a BP oil rig explosion April 20 and recently increased in volume after officials sheared off the top of the damaged outflow pipe as part of the latest containment effort. BP believes the bigger cap will fit over more of the pipe than the current cap. The current device is collecting about 466,200 gallons of oil per day, Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the government’s point man for the oil spill response, said earlier Monday at the White House. He also elaborated on comments made over the weekend that the spill cleanup would last into fall, acknowledging the full process would take much longer. “Dealing with the oil spill on the surface will take a couple of months,” he said Monday, but the process of getting oil out of marshlands and other habitats “will be years.”

Wagner among all-stars

May’s hit salvages victory BY MIKE LONDON

Staff report

KANNAPOLIS — Bloops fell safely Kannapolis 10 and liners Stanly 9 w e r e c a u g h t during Kannapolis’ zany 10-9 victory against Stanly County at Veterans Field on Monday. Kannapolis’ Dylan May drove a ball about 370 feet to center field for an out in the third. In the eighth, he knocked in the winning run with an opposite-field MAY blooper to shallow left. “I was just trying to avoid going deep in the count, and I didn’t hit it good at all,” May said. “But it felt great to win. It’s better to play bad and win than to play great and lose.” Kannapolis second baseman Wes Honeycutt had a similar experience. He went 4-for-5 with a bunch of bouncing singles, but the one ball he drilled was an easy double play for Stanly (6-3, 4-3). “My thing is to put the ball in play, and I put some balls where they couldn’t make the play,” Honeycutt said. “Then the one ball I hit on the nose gives them two outs.” Kannapolis (5-6, 4-4) had mental lapses and made five errors, but it continued its surge into the top half of the Area III Southern Division standings. “All we’ve been preaching is find a way to win,” Kannapolis coach Matt Stack said. “Stanly can swing it, and we didn’t make the routine plays we really have to make. But we still found a way.” Kannapolis had Northwest Cabarrus lefty Taylor West on the mound, but West was fighting sickness and didn’t have the sort of stuff he had when he struck out 12 East Rowan hitters in the fourth round of the 3A playoffs. He exited after four innings and six Stanly runs, including a bomb to right field by masher Corey Dick. Kannapolis’ defense stabilized behind A.L. Brown freshman Nathaniel Sexton, who survived the fifth and sixth. He gave Stack a chance to turn things over to relievers Zach Jones, who won it, and Kevin Hamilton, who earned a save with a 1-2-3 ninth. Kannapolis weathered a disastrous bottom of the first. Stanly starting pitcher Jordan Hildreth faced only two batters before moving to shortstop. Both those batters reached. Then Dick took the mound and walked May to load the bases with none out.

Five members of the K a n napolis Intimidators, including South Rowan High School graduate Daniel Wagner, were named South Atlantic League all-stars. Five players tied for the most selected in the Northern Division. First baseman Ian Gac will start alongside Wagner, a second baseman. Outfielder Kyle Colligan and two pitchers — Brandon Kloess and Joe Serafin — will also WAGNER represent the Intimidators on June 22 at Flour Field in Greenville, S.C. Wagner, a Kannapolis resident, has earned his first professional all-star nod. He is hitting .282 with a team-leading 16 stolen bases this season. Wagner has the top batting average among second basemen in the Northern Division and ranks second in RBIs (23). He has also played well defensively at second base. Gac, in his first season with the Chicago White Sox organization, is hitting .278 with a team-leading 11 home runs and 41 RBIs. He is one behind the league leader in home runs, fourth in the league in slugging percentage (.526) and second in extra-base hits (30). Gac has been named an allstar three times before in his professional career: Midwest League (midseason and postseason in 2008) and Hawaiian Winter Baseball League (2007). Colligan will be making his first professional all-star game appearance as a utility outfielder. He leads the Intimidators in batting average (.299), on-base percentage (.381) and runs scored (31). Colligan is 13-for-25 in his last seven games. Kloess, the Kannapolis closer, will make his first allstar game appearance. He has allowed three runs in 29 1⁄3 innings for a 0.92 ERA. He went the entire month of May without allowing a run and has struck out 37 batters while walking five this season. Kloess leads the Intimidators with five saves. He is fourth among relievers in the league in strikeouts per nine innings, has the fourth-lowest walk total per nine innings and has allowed the fifth-fewest baserunners per nine innings. Serafin is also making his first all-star appearance. He is tied for the team lead in wins with five and has a teamlow 3.55 ERA among the starting pitchers. He has induced the most groundball double plays in the South Atlantic League with 11, including five in one outing.

East Rowan’s Will Sapp (5) hugs shortstop Preston Troutman following the decisive win over Wilson Hunt on Saturday.

Strong finish for Sapp Center fielder named MVP of title series BY BRET STRELOW

bstrelow@salisburypost.com

Center fielder Will Sapp robbed opponents of home runs, and he even hit a few during East Rowan’s run to the 3A state championship. One of many unheralded commodities on a team with only two starters returning for coach Brian Hightower, Sapp was named the series MVP following East’s sweep of Wilson Hunt at Five County Stadium in Zebulon. “I really didn’t know what to expect out of this year since we lost so many seniors,” Sapp said. “I never thought I’d make it this far or be MVP of the state championship, but I worked hard all year. I lifted and ran, did all the things Coach Hightower told me to do. I

Intimidators lose twin bill on the road From staff reports

The Kannapolis Intimidators were swept by the Savannah Sand Gnats in a doubleheader in Savannah on Monday. Kannapolis dropped the first game 4-3 in 11 innings and lost 7-1 in the nightcap. Brady Shoemaker had a homer to dead center and an RBI single for a 2-0 lead in the opener, but the Intimidators couldn’t hold it. Alonzo Harris’ two-run triple tied the game for Savannah. Shoemaker put Kannapolis back on top in the 11th with a run-scoring double, but the Sand Gnats scored two in the bottom half. Pedro Zapata’s bases-clearing double in the fourth sunk Kannapolis in the second game.

Brown sidesteps questions about the future BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press

CHARLOTTE — Larry Brown is putting potential draft picks through workouts. The general manager is chatting with Brown regularly to discuss shaping the roster for next season. Everyone is acting as if Brown will be back for a third season with the Charlotte Bobcats. The Hall of Fame coach just won’t say it definitively and end all the speculation. Three days after declining to speak to reporters, Brown chose his words carefully after Monday’s pre-draft workout. Has he decided on whether he’s returning? “I’m here coaching,” Brown replied. “Obviously, I’m under contract and doing my job.” So it’s settled that he’s coming back? “I’m here. If I wasn’t here, it’d be another thing,” answered Brown. Brown then backed away from the circle of reporters and

ended the interview. It was another bizarre twist in a twomonth stretch of uncertainty surrounding the Michael Jordan-owned Bobcats and the well-traveled Brown, in his 13th pro or college head coaching job. Brown, who turns 70 in September, said after the Bobcats were swept by Orlando in the first round of the playoffs that he missed being away from his wife and teenage children in suburban Philadelphia and hadn’t decided whether he’d be back despite having two years left on his contract. He insisted, though, that he wouldn’t coach for anybody other than Jordan. While that hasn’t stopped rampant speculation of Brown bolting for another job, Bobcats GM Rod Higgins is working under the assumption that Brown will be on Charlotte’s bench this fall — even if Brown hasn’t made his plans clear to management. “If you watched the watched the workouts today and you watched the guy that was run-

ning the workouts, it was the coach that we’ve had the last two years,” Higgins said. “The situation is kind of status quo.” “Larry has been here and I’ve talked to Larry over the last three weeks practically every day in terms of how we improve our roster, what-if scenarios if we get into the draft, how we venture going forward and improving our roster,” Higgins said. “Those are the kind of conversations we’ve been having.” The Bobcats are in a difficult spot with several key decisions that must be made in the next month — with Brown expected to have significant input. Higgins called point guard Raymond Felton’s impending free agency a “delicate subject.” Felton, the No. 5 pick in the 2005 draft, improved this season before struggling in the playoffs. Felton turned down a long-term deal last summer, and Charlotte is close to the luxury tax, a figure Jordan has said the Bobcats won’t go over. “We’ve always maintained an interest in Raymond and

we’ve always expressed how much we like Raymond,” Higgins said. “But it’s a different landscape than it was probably in July.” Higgins was more definitive with impending restricted free agent Tyrus Thomas, saying they’re leaning toward making him a one-year qualifying offer of more than $6 million. “Tyrus, when we traded for him, he’s a guy that we envisioned going long-term with,” Higgins said. Higgins has also had “fruitful conversations” with teams looking to unload second-round picks, which is why Charlotte is working out prospects despite not having a pick in the June 24 draft. It’s also why Brown has been working despite failing to fully commit to next season. “You can’t really get caught up in that part,” Higgins said of Brown’s indecision. “I think you have to continue to communicate with each other. And there hasn’t been anything that has been different. ... I can’t afford to read a whole lot into it.”

East’s team gathers in left field after a playoff win against Northwest Cabarrus.

VICTORY FROM 1B

But Justin Seager was picked off second, and West rapped into a snappy double play to end the threat. Kannapolis trailed 3-0 before it tied the game in the third. Seager singled in a run before Honeycutt dodged a tag by catcher Rusty Hartsell and HONEYCUTT scored on a groundball. John Wallace’s sac fly got Kannapolis even. Trailing 6-3 in the fourth, Kannapolis scored on Honeycutt’s double-play grounder and Seager’s second RBI single of the night. Kannapolis took the lead for the first time with a fourrun fifth. The key blow was Ryan Goodman’s flyball down the right-field line that fell

safely and transformed a 6-5 deficit into a 7-6 lead. Kannapolis took a 9-6 lead to the seventh, but Sexton ran out of gas. Jerrett Richardson’s RBI single tied it 9-9. In the Stanly eighth, Matt Lisk rapped a hit to left field, but Goodman’s throw to Honeycutt cut him down trying to stretch his hit into a double. A wild moment in the bottom of the eighth helped set up May’s game-deciding hit. After Honeycutt started the inning with an infield hit and stole second, Seager slapped a groundball to the right side. He would’ve been out, but Stanly reliever Matt Lisk, who was covering first base, dropped his glove as he sprinted — and the ball was in his glove. May followed with his bloop single to score Honeycutt. Hartsell nearly tied it for Stanly in the ninth, but Tanner Black snagged his long drive just in front of the 385-foot sign in center to end it. “We didn’t have all our team for a while because Northwest went deep in the

“It was just incredible,” Sapp said. “I had a great time playing with all my friends. Any of them could have been named MVP because they all had a part in it. They all had their jobs and did what they had to do all year long.” Sapp went 5-for-8 with four runs and six RBIs in two games against Hunt, which lost 9-3 on Friday and 15-10 the next afternoon. He hit a tiebreaking triple in the fifth inning of the opener and drilled a three-run homer in the sixth. Both of his homers in 2010 occurred in East’s final six games. “I was looking to go middleoppo and try to drive it in the gaps because I knew if I hit it into that gap I could be standing on ‘3’ with my speed,” Sapp said. “With runners on base I was just looking to get base hits. “The pitches before (the homer), I pulled one foul and was right on it. He just left me one up and in, and I got the barrel to it. It just went out.” Sapp hit two doubles Saturday, including one that drove in two teammates while capping an eight-run top of the first. Hunt scored six times in its half of the inning, but East held a 15-7 lead by the start of the fourth. The game ended with a flyout to Wesley LeRoy, and the Mustangs rushed toward the middle of the infield to celebrate. “I love doing the dogpile with everybody,” said Sapp, who hit .369 for the season and .419 in the playoffs. “That was probably the best moment.” Sapp contributed as a pinchrunner late in the 2009 season and stole 14 bases this year. His speed, timely hitting and stellar defense were critical to East’s title run. During a 4-2 victory against Mount Pleasant in the third round, Troutman and Sapp smacked

Will Sapp makes a highlight-reel catch in Game 2 against Tuscola. back-to-back homers in the sixth inning to break a 1-all tie. East held on for a 2-1 win over Northwest Cabarrus in the next round. Northwest’s Tanner Black started flying around the bases following a one-out hit in the seventh inning but was thrown out at third thanks to a perfect relay involving Sapp, Troutman and Holmes. That victory pushed the Mustangs into the best-of-three Western finals, and Tuscola held a 3-0 advantage in the fourth inning of Game 1 when Sapp made a leaping catch to keep his team’s deficit manageable. A sixth-inning explosion lifted East to a 5-3 win. Sapp made his most memorable catch the next afternoon. With the Mountaineers leading 5-4, Walton Shepherd opened the bottom of the fourth inning with a long drive to center. Sapp raced back, ascended the outfield hill that’s befuddled so many visiting defenders and found the fence. He then looked up and moved sideways while locating the ball in mid-air. “I just got great jumps on the ball because I was so focused in,” Sapp said. “On that play I went up

NSSF teammate Kendell Williams was second at 5.41 (or 17-9). Barger won the 110 hurdles with a time of 14.27 seconds. NSSF teammate David Johnson was the runner-up at 14.31. Jessica Caldwell took first in the triple jump with a mark of 37-83⁄4, and Cuthbertson claimed second at roughly 34-91⁄2. She had a time of 15.69 i n the 100 hurdles, which Williams won with a 13.73.

the hill, I found the fence, then ran to the spot where the ball was at so I didn’t have to deal with going up the hill, finding the fence and finding the ball all at the same time.” Sapp’s experience enabled him to know that doing all three of those things at once is a nearly impossible task. “When you run up the hill, your head starts bobbing up and down,” Sapp said. “That first step you kind of go up and lose the ball for a second when you take that first step. I went up the hill, then found the fence and then ran along the fence so my head wouldn’t be moving at all.” A four-run top of the seventh gave East an 8-5 lead, and Sapp made another nice running catch in the bottom half of the inning. A dogpile formed near the mound following a flyout to right field, and the Mustangs were able to celebrate in the same manner a week later. “It was hard to believe that we won it,” Sapp said, “but we worked for this all year and it’s what we were playing for since the beginning of the season.”

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

Associated Press

PHOENIX — Stephen Drew drove in four runs, Mark Reynolds hit his 13th home run of the season, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat Atlanta 7-4 on Monday, the third loss in four games for the NL East leaders. Drew had an RBI single in the first inning and a threerun triple in Arizona’s five-run fourth. Derek Lowe (8-5), winner of his previous three starts, gave up seven runs and eight hits in four innings, his shortest outing of the season. Dan Haren (6-4) got his first win in four starts, although he was far from his best. He scattered nine hits and walked two, allowing three runs in 5-plus innings. The Braves stranded 12 runners. Padres 3, Phillies 1 PHILADELPHIA — Adrian Gonzalez’s first of two solo homers broke up Cole Hamels’ bid for a no-hitter with one out in the seventh, and Wade LeBlanc pitched seven impressive innings. Gonzalez lined an oppositefield shot into the flower bed just over the left-field wall to snap a scoreless tie. Scott Hairston connected three pitches later for a 2-0 lead. Hamels gave up three hits and two runs in eight innings, losing his third straight start. Giants 6, Reds 5 CINCINNATI — Juan Uribe drove in four runs with singles in the third and seventh, providing the final lead in a back-and-forth game. Cubs 6, Pirates 1 PITTSBURGH — Carlos Silva extended the best start by a Cubs pitcher in 43 years, allowing one run over seven innings, and Ryan Theriot scored four times for Chicago. Silva became the first Cubs starter to go 8-0 since Ken Holtzman was 9-0 in 1967. Rockies 5, Astros 1 DENVER — Jason Hammel

pitched 71⁄3 crisp innings and Clint Barmes had a two-run double. AMERICAN LEAGUE Mariners 4, Rangers 2 ARLINGTON, Texas — Cliff Lee threw a seven-hitter to help Seattle snap a threegame losing streak. Lee, who struck out seven and walked none, didn’t allow a run until Josh Hamilton’s one-out RBI single in the ninth. Red Sox 4, Indians 1 CLEVELAND — Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched eight shutout innings for Boston. Matsuzaka (5-2) gave up four hits — all singles — and was never threatened. In the club’s last nine games outside Fenway Park, the Red Sox rotation is 8-0 with a 0.70 ERA. Angels 4, Athletics 2 OAKLAND, Calif. — Bobby Abreu hit a two-run homer, Scott Kazmir won for the third time in four starts and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Oakland Athletics for their seasonbest sixth straight victory. Erick Aybar added an RBI triple as the Angels improved to 8-1 since Kendry Morales broke his leg jumping on home plate in a celebration following his game-ending grand slam against Seattle on May 29. Abreu’s first-inning drive gave Los Angeles a quick lead and the Angels only built on it from there. Manager Mike Scioscia returned following a one-game absence for his daughter’s high school graduation. Howie Kendrick singled in a run as the Angels won their sixth straight in Oakland. They have outscored the A’s 30-14 in those games. Kazmir (5-5) gave up a solo home run to Jake Fox with one out in the seventh, ending the pitcher’s scoreless streak in Oakland at 17 1-3 innings spanning his last three outings. The left-hander pounded the strike zone to work ahead in the count much of the game.

Washington selects Harper with top pick BY DENNIS WASZAK JR. Associated Press

SECAUCUS, N.J. — The Washington Nationals got their ace a year ago. Now, they think they’ve found their slugger. The Nationals selected Bryce Harper, a 17-year-old with prodigious power from the College of Southern Nevada, with the No. 1 overall pick in the baseball draft Monday night. “It’s what I’ve wanted since I was 7 years old,” he said. A year after taking Stephen Strasburg, the Nationals picked Harper, who can play catcher but was announced as an outfielder at the draft site at MLB Net- HARPER work studios by commissioner Bud Selig. Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo envisions Harper as a No. 3-type power hitter with a strong arm in right field. “We’re going to take the rigor and the pressures of learning the position, the difficult position of catcher, away from him,” Rizzo said, “and really let him concentrate on the offensive part of the game and let his athleticism take over as an outfielder.” Harper hit .443 with 31 home runs and 98 RBIs in his first college season in a wood bat league after skipping his final two years of high school and getting his GED. He played against East Rowan products Trey Holmes and Zach Smith of Pitt Community College recently in the National Junior College World Series. Harper showed solid defensive instincts behind the plate and called pitches much of the time, but his path to the majors will be in the outfield. “I can get better out there, I think,” Harper said. “Anywhere they need me, I’ll play. I just want to make it and we’ll see what happens when I get there.” The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Harper surpassed former big

league pitcher Alex Fernandez, who went fourth to the Chicago White Sox in 1990, as the highest-drafted JUCO player. With the second overall pick, Pittsburgh selected hard-throwing Texas high school right-hander Jameson Taillon. Baltimore went next and picked Florida high school shortstop Manny Machado, who has drawn comparisons to Alex Rodriguez. Cal State Fullerton shortstop Christian Colon went to Kansas City at No. 4, while Cleveland took Ole Miss lefthander Drew Pomeranz. Texas A&M righty Barret Loux went sixth to Arizona, and North Carolina right-hander Matt Harvey was selected by the New York Mets at No. 7. After not signing as a thirdround pick of the Angels in 2007, Harvey went 7-2 in both his freshman and sophomore years. He was 8-3 with a 3.09 ERA as a junior. He had a career-high strikeouts against Clemson in April. Houston took Georgia high school outfielder Delino DeShields Jr., son of the former big leaguer of the same name, eighth. Clemson’s Kyle Parker, also the quarterback on the football team, was taken 26th overall by Colorado. Harper is expected to seek a record contract through his adviser, Scott Boras, who last year negotiated a recordbreaking four-year, $15.1 million deal with the Nationals for Strasburg. The Nationals have through Aug. 16 to sign Harper, who has said he has plenty of options, including going back to Southern Nevada for another year if negotiations go awry. “I can’t remember back-toback years where there’s two players that have separated themselves from the rest of the field,” Rizzo said. “In that respect, it is very, very unique. I think it’s a lucky time to have two No. 1 picks overall.” The draft’s first- and supplemental rounds were to be completed Monday night, with rounds 2-50 selected over the next two days.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Stephen Strasburg went 7-2 with a 1.30 ERA in the minors.

STRASBURG FROM 1B

“I’m looking forward to that first outing or two being out of the way,” manager Jim Riggleman said. “I know the attention’s not going to go away completely, but the anticipation of the thing has been building since the draft — and before the draft — last year.” No one’s seen anything like it. A No. 1 overall pick who gets sellout, rock-star, hire-extra-security treatment in minor league cities such as Harrisburg and Rochester. The Nationals are actually having a decent year following back-to-back 100-losses seasons, but everything they’ve done has been overshadowed by talk about a player who didn’t have a locker in the clubhouse, whose debut against the Pittsburgh Pirates has been given its own baseball holiday nickname: “Strasmas.” “He needs to take a step back, take a deep breath and kind of soak in the moment because you only debut once in your career. It’s a special day for him, also,” general manager Mike Rizzo said. “We’re looking forward to getting back into a more normal routine with Stephen Strasburg as part of the Washington Nationals.” That would be just fine with Strasburg. He has candidly stated on many occasions that his majors debut has been long overdue. “I feel like I’ve been

ready,” he said after his last minor league outing, five scoreless innings for Triple-A Syracuse at Buffalo last week. There’s not much argument there. It was almost cruel to watch Strasburg overwhelm hitters in Double-A and Triple-A. His combined stats: 7-2 with a 1.30 ERA with 65 strikeouts and only 13 walks in 551⁄3 innings. But money trumped wins, at least this year. Having already invested heavily in the right-hander from San Diego State with a record $15.1 million contract over four years, the Nats wanted to save some dough down the road by calling Strasburg up after June 1, thus delaying by one year the eventual date when he will be eligible for arbitration. Strasburg is also looking forward to normalcy because he’s not a limelight guy. He will sometimes let a reporter know if he doesn’t care for a question, which can both refreshing and embarrassing. Strasburg was married in January, but the Nationals have already announced that on Tuesday: “Strasburg’s family will NOT be available to media (no exceptions).” Nationals Park has been sold out only once so far this season — on opening day — but the thought that Strasburg might pitch drew the season’s second biggest crowd Friday. Strasburg’s thoughts about it all? “It’s my major league debut. What more can you say?” he said. “It’s something I’ve dreamed about my entire life, and now it’s starting to become a reality.”

Make life hard for the defenders BY PHILLIP ALDER

United Feature Syndicate

When the dummy comes down and declarer sees he is in trouble, he should try to make it as hard as possible for the defenders to find the killing defense. This deal is an example. How should South plan the play in four hearts? West leads the club king: five, two, ace. South might have rebid three no-trump. Here, despite four-card heart support, North would probably have passed. (It is usually right to play in a nine-card major-suit fit, but that North hand is 4-3-3-3 and soft, with five points in quacks.) Note that three notrump has nine top tricks. Four hearts has those same nine tricks. A 10th can be established in clubs by leading toward dummy’s jack. The snag, of course, is that West can take his club queen and shift to a spade, giving the defense four more tricks. However, if you look at the West hand, he has identical holdings in spades and diamonds. Maybe he will switch to the wrong suit. But he won’t do that if South immediately draws trumps. This would allow East to discard the diamond two, discouraging in that suit. If West is watching, it would then be easy for him to find the spade shift. South must win trick one and return his remaining club at trick two, forcing West to find the right play without the benefit of a discard from his partner. For experts: There is a solution for the defenders. At trick two, East drops the club

Looking at it with a fresh eye will reveal ways to turn it into a wonderful creation. Gemini (May 21-June 20) - You could find yourself more earnestly keeping your mind on something that needs solving, and consequently coming up with the answer. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Because your eye is much sharper than usual for the little pieces that make up the whole, everything you do will be done with considerable care. Mistakes aren't likely to be a factor. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Everything you undertake should work out to your advantage, not because you're lucky, but because you're far more methodical than usual.

You are likely to conceive something quite ingenious and profitable. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Your eye and mind are both sharp for picking up on the little things others have seemed to miss. Consequently, you could spot something that will prove to be extremely advantageous for you. Aries (March 21-April 19) — What you do is likely to capture the attention of the powers that be, so it behooves you to do good work when on the job. It could open the door for a bonus or a raise. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — There's a good chance that you're on the verge of producing something that has impressive potential. Keep doing what you're doing, because it could earn you a higher position in life.

eight, his highest club asking for the higher-ranking of the other two side suits. (If he wanted a diamond switch, he would play his four at the second trick.)

Tucci signs on to superhero saga ‘Captain America’ LOS ANGELES (AP) — Stanley Tucci has signed on to help put Captain America in business. The Academy Awardnominated actor has joined the cast of the superhero saga “Captain America: The First Avenger.” Tucci will play Dr. Abraham Erskine, who in the Marvel Comics series was a scientist behind a super-soldier program that gave the title hero his powers. Due in theaters July 22, 2011, “Captain America” stars Chris Evans in the title role and also features Hugo Weaving and Hayley Atwell. Tucci’s credits include “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Julie & Julia.”

Dear Dr. Gott: I am a 79year-old male who has a chronic runny nose, diagnosed as vasomotor rhinitis. An ENT doctor told me that it is incurable. I have tried at least 10 different nasal sprays, the most recent being ipratDR. PETER ropium bromide. It GOTT helped for a while, but is no longer effective. Any suggestions? Dear Reader: Vasomotor rhinitis occurs because the blood vessels in the lining of the nose swell. This stimulates the mucous glands in the nose, resulting in a chronic stuffy/runny nose. While not harmful, the condition can be extremely annoying. Causes vary from person to person but can include medications, weather changes, specific foods, irritants in the air and chronic health conditions. Perhaps if we consider each possibility, we can zero in on the cause of your rhinitis. Medications, including aspirin, ibuprofen, sedatives, antidepressants and those taken for hypertension, erectile dysfunction and oral contraceptives, can trigger activity. Even the decongestant nasal sprays you have tried can cause negative symptoms. Changes in temperature

and humidity can cause nasal membranes to swell, resulting in a runny nose. Specific foods, primarily those that are spicy, and alcoholic beverages, such as beer and wine, trigger such activity. Irritants in the air you breathe — perfumes, pet dander, secondhand smoke, chemicals from a nearby plant or factory, dust, flowers in bloom and a host of other triggers — can be to blame. Lastly, medical conditions such as nasal polyps, middle-ear infections, stress, hypothyroidism and hormonal changes can be to blame. A physician listening to the presenting symptoms will likely make the diagnosis; he or she may have to rule out the possibility of allergies through skin or blood testing. During skin testing, the skin is exposed to small amounts of common airborne allergens, such as those from pollen, cats, dogs or dust mites. Blood tests measure the amount of specific antibodies in the blood. In an attempt to rule out sinus issues, a CT scan, a form of computerized X-ray, or nasal endoscopy, accomplished with the assistance of a fiberoptic camera, might be ordered. Treatment will depend on the severity of symptoms. For some, over-thecounter or prescription decongestants will reduce congestion and narrow nasal blood vessels. Nasal sprays, of which there are

many, include saline, antihistamines, corticosteroids and decongestants. Because symptoms can last a few hours or a few days, appear almost constantly or are more pronounced at a specific time of the year, I recommend the following. Keep a journal of when an attack occurs and what preceded it. Did you inhale exhaust fumes while riding behind a diesel truck on an interstate highway? Did you eat spicy foods at a luncheon buffet? Did you have a visitor who smokes? Did you visit a friend who has a woodstove for heat? Are you on a beta-blocker medication for hypertension? Are there similarities in conditions that precede each attack? If so, try to identify them and then make further attempts to avoid the possible trigger(s).
