Departing Murdock Institute chief: better days ahead BY EMILY FORD

KANNAPOLIS — The leader of David Murdock’s nonprofit research institute — the centerpiece of the N.C. Research Campus in Kannapolis — has stepped down after two years. Dr. Michael Luther, formerly with pharmaceutical giants Merck and GlaxoSmithKline, is out as president of the David H. Murdock Research Institute. The institute created by Murdock in 2006 to outfit, own and operate the Core Laboratory Building has struggled financially.

Murdock is chairman of Dole Food and founder of the Research Campus, a startup life sciences hub in downtown Kannapolis. The institute has had trouble paying its bills and relies on cash grants from Murdock to LUTHER cover operating expenses. Companies and universities researching nutrition, agriculture and human health pay the institute to conduct cutting-edge

tests and studies in the Core Lab, one of the world’s most complete life sciences laboratories. According to the IRS, Murdock has made cash grants of $120 million to the institute, which generated revenue of LEATH in $881,000 2009, the most recent Form 990 available. Luther remains with the infILE PhOTO BY wayne hinshaw/SALISBURY POST

Treme to retire Aug. 1

SALISBURY — Saying he had done his best for the city he loves, David Treme announced Tuesday he will retire Aug. 1 after more than 25 years as Salisbury’s city manager. “I have given you my very best, and hopefully most of the times it was good enough,” Treme said. “I will look back with no regrets.” Holding back tears, Mayor Susan Kluttz reluctantly accepted Treme’s desire to retire and said it is difficult to imagine city government without him. “This is an historic time. This TREME ends an important chapter in Salisbury’s history,” said Kluttz, who has served as mayor for 14 years alongside Treme. “The city is better off today for your love and concern and dedication.” Treme’s surprise announcement brought several city staffers in the audience to tears. He had notified the city’s management team shortly before Tuesday’s council meeting that he would retire. Earlier this year, the council voted unanimously to give Treme a bonus of at least $35,000 at retirement. If he had remained until the end of 2012, the bonus could have doubled to roughly $70,000.

Barber’s absence delays court date, board vote BY SHAVONNE POTTS AND KARISSA MINN

SALISBURY — Rowan County Commissioner Jon Barber, who was charged last month with driving while impaired and other traffic violations, did not show up for court Tuesday because he remains in rehab, court officials said. Barber was charged last

Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Suneson informed District Court Judge Marshall Bickett that Barber would not be in court and is expected to be released from rehab sometime later this month. His case was continued until Aug. 2.

SALISBURY — After 25 years and $171,000, City Council decided Tuesday to leave historic Shober Bridge just the way it is. For now. Norfolk Southern Railway derailed the city’s plan to rehabilitate the old bridge, which carries Ellis Street over the railroad tracks. Rather than giving in to the railroad’s wish to replace and lengthen the bridge to accommodate a future third track, council members voted to do nothing. “We’ve dealt with it for 25 years,” said Dan Mikkelson, the city’s director for engineering. The city will continue to close the timber bridge periodically for repairs. It still can’t carry heavy trucks, like emergency vehicles, but the “no-build” option provides the maximum historic preservation, Mikkelson said. “The desirable options have been eliminated by the railroad,” he said. “This is practical.” The federal government, which holds the pursestrings for a bridge that the city owns, said Salisbury would need the railroad’s blessing to move forward with rehabilitation. Councilman William “Pete” Kennedy said he was incensed the Federal Highway Administration took

FROM 1a stitute and has moved into business development. He said brighter days are ahead for the nonprofit, which recently landed a significant research project on obesity and diabetes with renowned scientist Dr. Barbara Hansen of the University of South Florida. Dr. Steven Leath, vice president for research for the University of North Carolina, has taken over day-to-day management of the Core Lab. Leath serves on the institute’s board of directors and was interim president before the board hired Luther in 2009. Luther and Leath would not say if the board asked Luther to step down. Luther, who earned $305,947 in salary and benefits in 2009, would not comment about personality differences between him and Murdock, who serves as chairman of the board. “Mike decided after a couple of years that he clearly had strengths and enthusiasm for business development, attracting new clients and more of the entrepreneurial activities associated with a startup,” Leath said. Leath acknowledged the institute owed money to vendors and suppliers when he began taking over leadership several months ago. He said he couldn’t recall from memory how much was owed.

“We’re rapidly taking care of those issues,” Leath said. A few outstanding balances remain, he said, and the institute has legitimate disputes with some vendors. But for the most part, “I’ve worked hard to raise the capital to get all that cleared up,” Leath said. Money to pay the bills came from grants, increasing sales and help from Murdock, he said. Leath was meeting with accountants again Tuesday to go over the books. “Financially, we’ve turned the corner,” he said. “Like any startup, there were difficult periods when we were trying to control costs and trying to develop our place in the scientific world.” The addition of Hansen’s obesity and diabetes research will bolster the institute’s image and reputation around the world. Hansen, a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, has been funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health for 39 years, Luther said. Between seven and 10 of her employees will relocate to Kannapolis, he said. “We are seeing big, fundamental strides,” Leath said. While still relatively small, especially when compared to expenses, revenue generated by the institute through contractual agreements with industry and academia has increased. The institute made

isbury uses, which have made the city a model for other local governments in the state and the nation, Kluttz said. He initiated the council’s system of goals and outcomes, annual goalsetting retreats, management-team leadership and customer service initiatives that won national recognition last year. Treme introduced his management processes to Salisbury when he was hired by the late Mayor John Wear, Susan Kluttz’s father. Under Treme’s leadership, the city used public-private partnerships to accomplish important initiatives, Kluttz said. She cited gang summits, the Flowers Bakery redevelopment, downtown revitalization, Town Mall development and the Plaza restoration as a few examples. Salisbury’s utilities have grown with Treme at the helm. With the Salisbury-Rowan Utilities’ agreement with Progress Energy to increase Salisbury’s water plant capacity to over 25 million gallons per day, as well as the development of Fibrant, the city is positioned for a successful future, Kluttz said.

N.C. Research Campus The 350-acre campus is home to branches of seven UNC System universities, Duke University and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. While billionaire Dole Food Chairman David Murdock supports the operations of Duke and the David H. Murdock Research Institute, other endeavors are state-sponsored. The Kannapolis campus received $23.5 million from the state this fiscal year. That’s up $1 million from the previous year.

$881,000 in 2009, up from $61,000 in 2008, its first year of operation. Luther said revenue likely will double this year. The 2010 Form 990 will be available after the close of the fiscal year June 30. In April this year alone, the institute billed $400,000 for scientific services and research studies, Leath said. The nonprofit should be self-sufficient by 2012, or able to pay its expenses without cash grants from Murdock, he said. Expenses in fiscal year 2009-10 totaled $17.3 million, but that amount will fall substantially this year as the institute pays off equipment, Leath said. “Most of those bills go away this year,” he said. “Much of our infrastructure is paid for.” Murdock will continue to give to the institute, but Leath said his gifts will go toward an endowment, not operating expenses.

Total assets for the institute on the 2009 Form 990 were $98.1 million. Total liabilities were $4.1 million, leaving a fund balance of roughly $94 million. Expenses to run the institute, such as lab operating costs and utilities, were about $4.6 million. Over three years, the institute has paid $34.8 million to general contractor Turner Construction of Atlanta, which built the Core Lab Building. The balance sheet on the 2009 Form 990 shows the institute started the fiscal year with accounts receivable, or money others owed to the nonprofit, of $1.4 million and ended the year at $566,000. Accounts payable, or money owed by the institute, started the fiscal year at $13.7 million and ended at $3.5 million. The institute hired six new employees in the past few months, Leath said, bringing the nonprofit up to 35 workers. In 2009, the nonprofit had

34 employees, but several left. Leath said they were not laid off. “We expect another big growth phase in the next few months,” he said. Luther’s new position, likely vice president of business development, was originally held by Dr. Randy Allen, who left a year ago, Leath said. Dr. Steve Colman remains as chief operating officer.

Three finalists are vying to succeed him as president, including a candidate Leath said he interviewed in Salisbury Monday. An announcement will come in 45 to 60 days, Leath said. The finalists all have experience in the public sector, unlike Luther, who came from private industry. “It was a much bigger change than he expected,” Leath said.

well said Treme has spent many long days and long years with the city and should be rewarded with a wonderful retirement. “You fought the good, long fight,” she said. Councilman Brian Miller recalled going to Treme when he was newly elected and had just changed jobs. His world had been turned upside down, and he was looking for validation for his decisions, Miller said. “Not only did we talk, but you also offered to spend time in prayer with me,” he said. While he and Treme have had differences of opinion, they have always respected each other, Miller said. “Salisbury could not have had a better soldier, and I appreciate what you’ve done,” he said. Councilman Paul Woodson was absent but sent his regards. “Dave has always been very professional,” Woodson said in a press release. “The city has made great progress over the last 14 years. We will miss Dave’s leadership.” Treme is responsible for implementing many of the practices Sal-

through some of the work session material, I don’t know that we could pass a budget without a fifth vote,” Mitchell said. “In the budget work session, we could very well find out that there’s general consensus on many, if not all, of the items.” If Barber can’t attend on June 20, commissioners may decide to delay the vote until he returns. The county is supposed to finalize its budget by June 30, Mitchell said, but commissioners could approve a continuing budget for a short period of time if necessary. The board already rescheduled one vote that needed a tiebreaker Monday. Commissioner Raymond Coltrain nominated Bill Burgin to the board of Piedmont Behavioral Healthcare, and Mitchell seconded the board appointment. It failed 2-2, though, with Commissioners Jim Sides and Carl Ford dissenting. After the meeting, Sides said he wants to check whether there are term limits and, if so, make sure they are properly handled. Burgin’s application states he has served on the Piedmont Behavioral Healthcare board for 18 years. “If there are no other applicants, and he’s the only one, we could waive term limits,” Sides said. “But most boards have them.”

Council offered the incentive in recognition of Treme’s service and in an effort to keep him at the helm while the city establishes Fibrant, the new fiber-to-the-home telecommunications utility. Treme, who turns 64 years old Friday, said once he knew he would not stay until Dec. 31, 2012, he thought it best to retire. He will depart before the November elections, when all five seats on the council are up for grabs. Treme said he plans to spend time with his family, traveling to Korea to see his 2-year-old grandchild. “I would like to do some new things while I’m still able,” he said. He mentioned teaching, possibly classes in leadership, state and local government or strategic planning. For the first time, Treme said he has no firm plans. “This is crazy,” he said. City Council members sang his praises and passed a resolution appointing him city manager emeritus, the city’s highest professional honor. “I’m going to miss you, but I know where your heart is,” said William “Pete” Kennedy, the longest-serving council member with 18 years in office. “Your heart is with the city.” Mayor Pro Tem Maggie Black-

Mayor Susan Kluttz said she and City Council soon will meet with assistant city managers Doug Paris and John Sofley to select an acting or interim city manager to lead the organization while Council decides how to fill the position. Kluttz asked Human Resources Director Zack Kyle to brief Council on options for the selection process.

After several years of study, focus groups and public hearings, Treme guided the city through construction of the Fibrant network and a new customer service building, Kluttz said. Fibrant is now fully operational serves more than 900 customers. “One of Dave’s greatest strengths is that he understands the importance of having a strong team of leaders managing the departments,” she said. “Having these qualified leaders in place will help ensure a smooth transition for the city, and I am confident the outstanding government we experience today will continue in the future.” Treme’s 36-year career as a city manager began in 1975 as the city manager of Mauldin, S.C. He came to Salisbury in February 1986 from Georgetown, S.C., where he served as city manager for nearly nine years. Salisbury has the most outstanding employees in the state, Treme said, and what the city does as a government is second to none. He plans to stay in Salisbury after he retires, and over the next several months will see “what the Lord is opening up for me to do,” he said. The time was right to retire, he said. “I can look back in my career and say I tried to the best of my ability to glorify God in everything I’ve done,” Treme said.

Motor home will provide shelter for family whose home of 15 years burned BY SARAH CAMPBELL


Firefighters take a break from battling a blaze at East Ridge Road on Tuesday. The home sustained major damage on one end. Cross Country Volunteer Fire Department contained the blaze to one end of the home and extinguished it within a few minutes, but smoke damage throughout the house has made it uninhabitable, Chief Jeff Whitley said. “The damage is pretty extensive,” Whitley said. Phil Leonard said the family had just finished remodeling the inside of the home and had planned to start work on the outside next. The Leonards said they

would stay in their motor home until they find a place to rent. “I guess we’ll get everything out and let the fire department burn it down for training,” Phil Leonard said. “There’s no saving it.” The Leonards did not have insurance. Whitley said the hot weather coupled with the heat from the fire inside the home forced him to rotate small teams of firefighters in and out of the house frequently.

Firefighters remained on the scene at least an hour after the fire was contained to ensure the fire would not reignite. One firefighter sustained a minor injury when he slipped and fell through the porch. He received treatment from Rowan EMS. Franklin, Salisbury, Spencer, Miller’s Ferry and the Rowan County Rescue Squad also responded to the scene. Contact reporter Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.

Patricia Leonard had been organizing a building on their property when she went home to cool off and grab a drink. “I saw smoke coming out of the roof so I tried to go in the front door, but the house was full of smoke,” she said.

History will tell Another cell phone user, Keyana McAllister, said frequent contradicting studies about the safety of cell phones makes it difficult to believe, but she does think cell phones in general produce a significant amount of radiation. “I actually feel it may because of all the radiation coming from the cell phones, and when you plug it up and you’re on the phone while they’re plugged in, I think that it may do some justice toward the fact that it’s radiation,” McAllister said. “But it could just be theories that they’re making up. They make up new theories every day about anything.” McAllister also said the recent studies will not affect her cell phone usage. “People use their cell phones everyday.

She also said she doesn’t think it will affect the amount of time other’s will spend on their phones. “History will tell, but I don’t think so,” McAllister said.

College students: Use your cell phone on a speaker or earpiece Several college students also said they heard the reports and have made appropriate changes to avoid any potential radiation exposure. Arria Evans, a Livingstone College student, said she believes all electronics have levels of radiation, including cell phones. “I personally think that it does, because with any electronics — with myself being a (computer science) major — I know that all electronics have radiation, and cell phones we use the most,” Evans said. “It’s part of our lives. I think it’s very possible to give us radiation for brain cancer.” Evans said she uses her phone on speaker now to avoid holding it too close. “I immediately always talk on my phone on speaker now and away from my face,” Evans said. Evans’ friend, Sabrina Famiglietti, said she told her family after she heard the report and now uses an earpiece. “I told my family about it,” Famiglietti said. “I use my earpiece. I listen to my music anyway, so it’s kind of normal to do.”

CHINA GROVE — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is looking for three men who assaulted a China Grove man with a knife early Tuesday morning. Capt. John Sifford said Bobby Gene Austin, 51, of the 100 block of Cedar Ridge Lane, sustained cuts to his arms, legs and upper body about 12:20 a.m. “The victim stated he had received a phone call at about 10 p.m. from an unknown male and an unlisted number who said he was coming over to kill the victim and his family,” Sifford said in an email to the Post. Sifford said Austin heard a knock at his back door about 12:15 a.m. When he went outside, three men with hoods on their faces began assaulting him with knives. Austin could not give any further description of the suspects, but believes white and black males were involved. When police arrived, the men fled on foot into the woods. Sifford said a Sheriff’s K9 tracked the men through the parking lot of Dayspring Community Church on Lentz

Road, but did not find them. Austin told police he has a court case pending on a previous assault case, but the defendant is still in jail. He also said his daughter has an on-going custody battle and a pending 50-B protective order hearing with an ex-boyfriend. Sifford said Austin required numerous staples and stitches and is in stable condition. The investigation is ongoing.

County’s nonprofit organizations also under the budget-cutting ax Representatives make their pleas to commissioners at Monday’s public hearing BY KARISSA MINN

Two representatives from a faithbased sub-group of the Human Relations Council also encouraged the county to support the council. The Covenant Community Connection sponsors Let’s Get Connected Day, Meet Your Neighbor forums and the Mayor’s Spirit Lunches. Jerry Chandler, vice president of advancement at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, brought up a different topic. He told commissioners that this will be the third budget year the community college has requested $180,000 for maintenance of Building 400. Construction on the building began in spring 2009 and finished in summer 2010, and Chandler said the college has been operating it at a loss since then. “We certainly understand the very tight situation that you’re in, and we appreciate your support this year that you were able to give to us,” he said. “We just respectfully ask that you consider in the future helping us make up this deficit, whenever you’re ready to do that.” Not everyone spoke at the hearing to ask for county funding. In fact, a few people urged the board to make more cuts in order to avoid raising the property tax rate, which would increase by 2.75 cents per $100 valuation in the county’s proposed budget. Marina Bare said many county residents have lost income and even their jobs, while prices for fuel, insurance, utilities and groceries have been going up. “We’re paying enough taxes,” she said. “If some people want to pay more taxes, let them donate as much to the county as they like.”

SALISBURY — The Rowan County Board of Commissioners heard about more than school funding at its public hearing on the budget Monday. Commissioners voted in April to remove funding to the Rowan Arts Council, Rowan Museum Inc. and the Salisbury Rowan Human Relations Council. The county’s proposed fiscal year 2011-12 budget would cut most other nonprofit and special appropriations by 10 percent. Whayne Hougland, chair of the Salisbury-Rowan Human Relations Council, said the council’s purpose is to create a secure environment of hospitality, inclusiveness, acceptance and appreciation of diversity. “We were created by joint ordinances to ensure that the City of Salisbury and Rowan County would strive for the dignity and worth of every individual,” he said. Hougland told commissioners that he knows $3,500 doesn’t sound like a lot of money, and it represents just a small percentage of the county’s annual budget. “But the truth is, even though it’s a seemingly insignificant amount of money, taking it away suggests something very significant and troubling,” he said. “It suggests that you do not fully recognize, understand or support the mission your predecessors sought to engage.” George Jackson, vice chair of the N.C. Martin Luther King Commission, said state grant funding that filters through the commission to local Human Relations Councils has dwindled to almost nothing. That money normally would be given for Martin Luther King Jr. holiday events, including the local breakfast. “We need your support to continue to fund the Human Relations Council at its current level,” Jackson said, “because we believe that Dr. King’s legacy can best be promoted by the council and a group of people who reflect the overall demographic of the community.” Other events the council hosts include Elizabeth Duncan Koontz Humanitarian Awards Banquet and La Contact reporter Karissa Minn at Fiesta De Rowan. 704-797-4222.

Play on life of famous bandit shot in Salisbury debuts Friday A stage play on the life of the once famous bandit Otto Wood will debut Friday night in North Wilkesboro. Wood, one the country’s most wanted criminals, was killed in a gunfight on East Innes Street in Salisbury on Dec. 31, 1930. Salisbury Police Chief R.L. Rankin shot and killed the “one-armed desperado” near the old Hardiman’s Furniture building. Thousands came to view his body at Wright Undertaking on West Innes Street before the citizens of Salisbury collected $24.68 to send Wood’s body to his sickly mother in Coaldale, W.Va. The citizenry raised an extra $39.44 to help the mother in her son’s burial. Wood had his roots in Wilkes County, where among his friends and family he developed an almost Robin Hoodtype reputation through his many crimes and escapes from prison. Jerry Lankford, editor of The Record in North Wilkesboro, has written the play, “Otto Wood; The Bandit.” It will be performed at The Record Park Friday and Saturday nights and again June 17 and 18. Heather Osborne is the director. Nat Padgett plays the role of Otto Wood. Much of the script is based on an autobiography Wood wrote during one of his stays in prison and on interviews that led to a series of stories about Wood that appeared in The Record. All seats for the show, which includes live music, are $5. The Record Park is located

Pony reported stolen SALISBURY — A Salisbury man reported his 4-year-old pony stolen Sunday. Jose Nicholas Ruano Ayala, 31, of Briarwood Terrace, told the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office that someone took the tan buckskin pony that was tied up with a rope outside. Capt. John Sifford said Ayala believes the incident occurred between 11 p.m. Saturday and 10:30 a.m. Sunday. Ayala told authorities the pony could not have gotten free on its own because the knot was tied so tightly. He said a gate at the back of his property found open would have had to be forced open because it was covered with overgrown plants. The pony has a white star on its nose and a white patch under its left chest. It has no identifying tags or implants. The pony is valued at $1,500. Sifford said there are no leads in the case at this time.

Assault and robbery investigation continues KANNAPOLIS — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the assault and robbery of two Kannapolis men. Capt. John Sifford said Allen Johnson, 18, of 7580 Beaver Lane, and William Newman, 27, of 8397 Smith Road, reported they were playing pool Friday about 3 a.m. when three black men wearing red bandanas entered the Smith Road residence. Johnson and Newman told police the men proceeded to strike them in the back of the head with a gun before robbing them. Newman reported a laptop computer, cell phone, wallet and PlayStation 3 stolen. A cell phone was taken from Johnson. The victims could not say if the men left on foot or had a vehicle nearby. Newman told police the gun used in the assault was a silver .44 caliber revolver. Sifford said the incident is still under investigation.

Brawl turns violent CHINA GROVE — An argument between brothers turned violent Friday. Rowan County Sheriff’s Capt. John Sifford said Randy Lee Troutman, 44, of 3685 Daugherty Road, punched his brother, Dennis Troutman, 50, of 8570 Daugherty Road, after getting into a fight at their parents’ house at 3530 Daugherty Road. According to the report, Randy punched Dennis as he was trying to drive away in his 2005 Nissan Frontier. Sifford said Randy Troutman then reached through the window and grabbed the steering

wheel, causing the truck to drive onto an elevated spot, flip over and come to rest on its roof. After the incident Randy Troutman left on a motorcycle. Randy Troutman later turned himself in to police. He has been charged with simple assault and assault with a deadly weapon.

Man accidentally shoots friend in hand SALISBURY — A Salisbury man sustained a gunshot wound to his left hand after his friend mistakenly fired a loaded revolver, police said. The initial report from the scene at 660 Sides Road indicted Aaron Kyle Yarborough, 20, had a self-inflicted gunshot wound. But Capt. John Sifford of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said after investigating, officers learned Heath O’Brien, 18, of 6975 Stokes Ferry Road, actually fired the shot. Sifford said O’Brien had been handling the .38-caliber handgun in a “careless manner,” spinning the cylinder around. He thought it was empty when he turned the gun to the side and pulled the trigger. The bullet landed between Yarborough’s thumb and index finger. He was treated and released from Rowan Regional Medical Center. Sifford said O’Brien has not been charged in the incident.

Charges consolidated SALISBURY — A Lexington man was released from jail Tuesday after court officials consolidated more than 100 charges related to car break-ins last year in Rowan County to two counts. Benjamin Jacob Creech, 26, of 1026 Riverview Blvd., Lexington, was sentenced to 151 days in jail for each of the two consolidated judgments. He received credit for the nearly 11 months he’s remained in jail awaiting trial. Creech was charged in July 2010 with 120 counts that included misdemeanor larceny as well as attempted breaking and entering a motor vehicle. He was charged following numerous vehicle break-ins along Old Concord, Webb and Peeler roads. Authorities say Creech stole a golf cart from a residence and used it to drive from home to home, breaking into cars. From 2004 to 2009, Creech was convicted of numerous breaking and entering charges in four different counties including Davidson, Randolph and Davie. In 2009, Creech was convicted in Randolph County of 36 counts of breaking and entering and larceny of motor vehicles.

Couple frustrated by stalled work on Brookwood Drive culvert GRANITE QUARRY — The waiting game continues on Brookwood Drive, where work on building a new drainage culvert has stalled until a power pole can be moved. Meanwhile, a couple who live on the street and in the middle of the project, told the Granite Quarry Board of Aldermen Monday night that the entire project has been flawed from the start. “I have lived a nightmare,” Danny Gay said. He described a road rutted and caked in mud and times when access to his driveway was blocked without any advance warning. Gay questioned who was

responsible for paying the cost of moving the power pole from his side of the street to the other. Through the project, he said, he had alternately heard it was the contractor’s, the town’s or Duke Energy’s responsibility. His wife, Donna Kauffman, questioned the high cost for the whole project on a relatively insignificant street and said it looks as though it will approach $500,000 to $750,000 by the time everything is paid. Kauffman said the couple’s property was catching “the brunt of everything.” The contractor for the culvert project had begun construction, only to be halted when Duke Energy required a work plan for moving a power pole and service connect-

Grand jury indictments listed SALISBURY — Two out-oftown men who were arrested in April for trafficking heroin were indicted by a Rowan County grand jury in May. Namath Phillip Beam, 25, Charlotte, was indicted on two counts of trafficking opium or heroin, conspiring to traffic opium or heroin, possession with intent to manufacture sell or deliver heroin, simple possession of marijuana and maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for a controlled substance. Daniel Paneda Ponce, 22, of Rock Hill, S.C., was indicted on two counts of trafficking opium or heroin, conspiring to traffic opium or heroin, possession with intent to manufacture sell or deliver heroin, simple possession of marijuana and maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for a controlled substance. Both men were arrested as a result of a drug investigation. Beam and Ponce remain in the Rowan County Dentention Center. The grand jury also indicted the following: • Gabriel Brown, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. Brown was charged in Feburary with with shooting at two vehicles, threatening to kill a woman and assaulting a man. Warrants said he called a woman and told her he was going to shoot her. Brown also assaulted a man with a .45-caliber handgun. • Jared Charbonneau, intentional child abuse and serious injury. Charbonneau was watching his girlfriend’s 5-year-old boy on March 19 when the incident happened. He was arrested in April. • Aaron Lee Ervin, firstdegree rape, first-degree sex offense of a child and indecent liberties with a child. Ervin was charged in April with several sex offenses involving an 11-year-old girl. • Barabara Hiott, 21 counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and 21 counts of trafficking in opium. She was arrested in December for doctor shopping and selling various prescription drugs. Authorities said Hiott used several doctors to get the controlled substances, and used different pharmacies to fill the prescriptions. Hiott also used different variations of her name to avoid detection. • Terry Lamont McCullough, resisting, delaying or obstructing a police officer, two counts of assault on a government official, felony possession of crack with intent to sell or deliver, misdemeanor possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. McCullough was arrested in February after he punched a police officer and was found with seven rocks of crack cocaine inside his pockets and a small amount of marijuana and two crack pipes. • Kevin Price and Zachary Ragan, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. Both were charged in April after an armed robbery of Jack’s Grocery on Bringle

Ferry Road. The suspect demanded money and left with more than $4,000 cash and five cartons of cigarettes. • Robert Louis Rehak Jr., 10 counts of trafficking heroin and 10 counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud/forgery. Rehak was arrested in February with “doctor shopping” from local physicians for several months in 2010. • Bert Tanner, six counts of statutory rape, five counts of indecent liberties with a child, two counts of first-degree rape and one count of first-degree sex offense. Tanner was arrested in April on sex offenses involving two juvenile girls. • Bobby Wesley, felony breaking and entering and two counts of misdemeanor breaking or forcing open a coin-currency operated machine. Wesley was arrested in January for his involvement in a break-in at Lancaster’s Car Wash. • Jason Wood, possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, and selling cocaine. Wood was arrested in December as part of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office “Naughty List” which was the result of an undercover drug operation. • Robert Thomas Henderson Jr, assault by strangulation and resisting a public officer. Henderson was arrested in November after he choked a woman until she lost consciousness, authorities said. • John Cletis Jackson Jr., possession of firearm by a felon and possessing a weapon of mass destruction. A sheriff’s deputy who was working private security at a party found a MAC-10 submachine gun and a MAC-10 magazine with ammunition inside a bag hidden on top of a car tire. Moments earlier, he’d just seen a man place something near the vehicle. • Pamela Lynch, two felony counts of taking a financial transaction card and three felony counts of obtaining property by false pretenses. Lynch was arrested in April after authorites said she took a woman’s purse and later rented a room in the same motel. • Untearda Ray Massey, four counts of trafficking in cocaine and Fantasia White, one count of trafficking cocaine and two counts of conspiracy to traffic cocaine. Kannapolis Police Department charged the two in May with trafficking cocaine. • Tamika Oglesby, trafficking opium or heroin and mainting a vehicle or dwelling place to keep, store and sell a controlled substance and simple possession of a scheduled VI controlled substance. In December, she was part of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office “Naughty List,” through which they made a number of arrests during an undercover operation. She was also indicted in March on other drug charges. Contact reporter Shavonne Potts at 704-797-4253.

Raffle winner named

truck, first driven in the 1960s by Bill “Maverick” Golden, raised $2,231 for the children’s home, thanks to Kevin and Cindy Kisamore of Granite Quarry. Kevin Kisamore, with help from his father, Chuck, built the little red wagon, featured last week in the Salisbury Post.

ed with it. Gay said he had raised the question about the power pole early in the project, and town officials chastised Town Engineer Jeff Moody in the past for not having been prepared for the pole’s relocation. Moody attended Monday’s meeting to answer questions for the town board. He said the town met with Duke Power April 1 to discuss the power pole’s move and had a relocation plan to the company by April 4. Duke approved the plan May 3, while the town purchased the necessary right of way. But the power pole relocation and underground conduit to go with it have yet to be accomplished. Meanwhile, the contractor has had to leave the project to work on other jobs.

“As of today,” Moody added Monday night, “we still don’t have an answer from Duke” as to when the line will be relocated. He said he also is waiting on a contractor to give a price on the underground conduit necessary to serve Gay’s house. But Town Manager Dan Peters emphasized Tuesday that Duke Energy has not been been holding up the project. Duke will be ready to proceed with the pole’s relocation, he said, once the site is ready for its crew to move in. A tree service was clearing branches outside of Guy’s house Monday, and Peters said Duke is still waiting for the underground conduit to be in place. Comments made at Mon-

day’s meeting left the wrong impression that Duke Energy had placed a higher priority on responding to storm damage throughout its service area, Peters said. The town already has allocated $6,700 to Duke Energy for the pole’s relocation once the site is ready. As to the cost of the overall project, aldermen approved a resolution in May for the $450,000 financing of the Brookwood Drive culvert. The town will finance the work through F&M Bank at 3.99 percent interest over a 15-year period. Peters said the payments each year will be roughly $40,000. Powell Bill funding from the state will go toward paying $375,000. In the 2011-12 budget ap-

proved Monday night, the Brookwood culvert is listed as a $475,000 capital project. Gay told aldermen he felt as though they had been misled and misinformed about the culvert project from the beginning. Mayor Mary Ponds asked Moody for better communications as to what’s happening with the project. Alderwoman Eloise Peeler asked Moody whether the contractor would immediately return to the Brookwood culvert project once the issues with the power pole are resolved. Moody said he would work toward that end. “I want to get it finished,” he said. Contact Mark Wineka at 704-797-4263.

Election laws moving ahead at NC Legislature RALEIGH (AP) — The Republican-led Legislature pushed through several election bills Tuesday that would make it easier for third-party candidates to get on the ballot, make judicial races partisan again and eliminate straight-party voting. None of the bills has yet become law. But passage through either the House or Senate before a key procedural deadline Thursday signals to Democrats that Republican legislative leaders want to alter election rules they believe have hurt the GOP over the years. Passage means the bills can be considered through next year. “Who are we kidding?” Sen. Malcolm Graham, DMecklenburg, asked Republicans before the chamber gave tentative approval to end straight-party voting. “We are setting up artificial barriers to deny people the opportunity to vote ... Even you guys are better than that.” Straight-ticket voting was used by more than 43 percent of the ballots cast in the 2010 general election, with Democrats using the method slightly more than Republicans. The law exempts the race for president

from straight-party voting. Senate Republicans said it wasn’t about politics, but rather making sure about giving people the right to vote for a person instead of a party. Sixteen states have a form of straight party voting, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. “It’s time we end the practice,” Sen. Buck Newton, RWilson, a bill sponsor, said before a 31-19 party-line vote. The House approved by a 67-51 vote a bill that would shift all judicial races — from District Court to the Supreme Court — from nonpartisan races to partisan ones in which the parties would hold primaries to seek their nominees. Appellate court judgeships have been nonpartisan since 2004 elections. Republicans at the time complained the move by Democrats was designed to help their candidates after Republicans won more of those races. Opponents of re-

turning to partisan races said judges shouldn’t have labels when carrying out of justice. But others said voters need the label to add to what little they know about these downballot races. The bill also would end a Democratic-promoted program used in the 2008 elections that allowed candidates for insurance commissioner, state auditor and superintendent of public instruction to receive public funding in exchange for limiting fundraising from outside sources. Democrats said the public financing, which would still be available for candidates in appellate court judgeships, would eliminate the perception that elected officials were taking campaign donations from people that may have a vested interest in their government actions. Many Republicans are opposed to the public financing on principle. One measure approved by the House, however, didn’t ap-

NC House gives initial OK to opening gun laws RALEIGH (AP) — People who are being victimized by a carjacker or home-invader, or who think they can save a life, can use deadly force under an expansion of North Carolina gun laws tentatively approved by the state House on Tuesday. The House voted 77-38 for legislation that puts the burden of proof on prosecutors if there’s a question whether a person was justified in firing at an intruder entering homes, cars or workplaces. A final House vote is expected Wednesday, followed by consideration in the Senate. Current law says people have no duty to retreat inside their homes prior to using deadly force against someone trying to break in if they reasonably believe the intruder may try to kill or seriously injure them or someone else. But the legal standard means the shooter may have to justify using the weapon after the fact. The new legislation presumes firing a weapon during these situations was

proper, and would apply that beyond a home to potential victims of carjackings and business break-ins. A district attorney could try to prove otherwise in court. The shooter also would be immune from civil liability. The gun bill also: • reduces the penalty for firearm possession on school grounds from a low-level felony to a misdemeanor and requires knowledge of wrongdoing. • cuts in half the time within which a sheriff must deny or issue a concealed handgun permit to 45 days. • accepts as valid any other states’ concealed handgun permit. • allows firearms to be purchased in another state if buying requirements there are satisfied. A property-rights debate between Republicans erased language that would have forced businesses to accept guns in the parked cars of permit-holders. That language was dropped by a 59-57 vote that crossed party lines.

pear to benefit either major party. The bill would reduce the number of signatures third-party and independent candidates must receive to get on the ballot. Current law, upheld by the state Supreme Court in March, has required parties like the Green Party or Libertarian Party to collect tens of thousands of signatures to get their candidates on the statewide ballot. The bill would lower the threshold to require signatures from 0.25 percent of the state’s registered voters, down from the current 2 percent. A party must start the petition process over if neither its candidate for governor nor president fails to receive 2 percent of the vote. That voting threshold also would be reduced to 0.25 percent. Lower thresholds also would be given to candidates who have no political party to get on the ballot. The changes, which were approved 66-50 in the House, would end third-party requirements considered some of the toughest in the country to meet, said Damon Circosta with the nonpartisan North Carolina Center for Voter Education. “More participation means better governance,” Circosta said.

Duke Power provides tips on how to keep power bills down when the temperature goes up

the railroad’s side instead of listening to City Council, which represents the people. “I’m pretty annoyed by that,” Kennedy said. To rub salt in the wound, Mikkelson said, the N.C. Department of Transportation has invoiced the city for $171,148 in federal funds spent over the past quartercentury for bridge planning and engineering. “There is a time limit, and this project has exceeded the time limit by a long amount,” Mikkelson said. With the city’s decision to do nothing, Mikkelson said he will ask the state to waive repayment. The city has been going through the National Environmental Policy Act process for the bridge, and federal policy says cities that choose a no-build option as a result of that process should not be penalized financially, Mikkelson said. He recommended the city complete the NEPA process to better address the invoice issue. Tearing down the bridge and building a replacement to accommodate three tracks would require the city to start over with NEPA, Mikkelson said. Cynthia Cole Jenkins, new executive director for Historic Salisbury Foundation,

Also at Tuesday’s meeting, City Council: • Thanked Pastor Bill Godair and Cornerstone Church for starting El Latino, the only Latino newspaper in Rowan County. Godair said the Latino population has grown by 98 percent in Rowan County, up to about 11,000 people. He introduced the six-member newspaper staff, led by editor Orlando Zapata. The paper, which can be found online at, has published for about two months and is encouraging the estimated 60,000 Latinos here and in surrounding counties to spend money in Rowan County, Godair said. • Agreed to pay a $25,000 grant to Turnkey Technologies, first recipient of the city’s new Industrial Building Revitalization Program, for completing improvements as promised at the former PowerCurbers building at 402 Bringle Ferry Road. • Set a public hearing for June 21 to consider an economic incentive grant to “Project Tree.” The existing Rowan County company wants to create 49 new jobs paying an average annual salary exceeding $37,000, said Robert Van Geons, executive director for RowanWorks Economic Development.

City Council will hold a public budget workshop from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday at City Hall, 217 S. Main St. Budget proposals include: • 5.2 cent property tax increase. The rate is “revenue neutral,” meaning even though it’s higher, the city will generate the same amount of property tax revenue as last year. • Cut 36 full-time and 11 part-time positions. Most of the jobs were vacant due to a rolling freeze that began several years ago. • Continue rolling freeze. Only essential positions would be filled. • Increase water and sewer rates by an average 2.86 percent. • Realign and consolidate several divisions into functional units to increase efficiency. • No merit or cost of living increases for third year. • Cut funding to nonprofit groups by 10 percent. • No increase in Fibrant rates.

WE BUY GOLD… Guaranteed Best Prices! encouraged the city to leave the bridge alone. The bridge, one of a few humpbacks left in the state, gives Salisbury a sense of place and is historically important for the neighborhood, Jenkins said. “Allow us to continue to deal with DOT and the railroad and figure out exactly what it is they are trying to do with the third-track option,” she said. Mayor Susan Kluttz said historic preservation is an important part of Salisbury, and the community “has rallied very visibly for this bridge.” Preservationists launched a yard-sign campaign last year and took other measures to support the bridge. Kluttz said it would be foolish to build a three-track

tation, or 21 years, by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. The lengthy process holds the department accountable to 464 professional standards, Chief Rory Collins said. “It’s not simple and it takes a great deal of effort,” he said. Collins and Lt. Andy Efird showed a framed award for advanced meritorious accreditation and said the department has been recognized internationally. • Donated property located at 615 S. Ellis St. for use as a city neighborhood park. The area will remain open space until the city can afford to install equipment, and the neighborhood will provide maintenance, said Amy Smith, chairwoman of the city’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, and Mary Arey, a board member and neighborhood advocate. • Extended a permit through July 19 for facade improvements at Signs and Steins, 126 and 128 N. Main St. Dan Mikkelson, the city’s director of engineering, said crews are replacing window, cleaning and painting. • Approved a lease-purchase contract for $714,000 to SunTrust Equipment Financing and Leasing Corporation for purchase of a new fire truck at a rate of 1.625 percent over four years. • Approved a lease-purchase contract for $200,000 with the same lender for the purchase of security equipment with the same terms. • Agreed to partner with Centralina Council of Governments to pursue a $40,000 planning grant from the N.C. Sustainable Communities Task Force. It costs the city nothing. City staff will provide information about older industrial buildings available for economic development. • Proclaimed June 25 as LGBT Pride Day. A festival from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the 100 block of East Fisher Street will promote the elimination of discrimination against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. • Heard from Mayor Pro Tem Maggie Blackwell and Councilman Brian Miller, who are taking recent recommendations from the Better Housing Committee and distilling them into action items for City Council to consider. • Recognized the Salisbury High School Men’s Golf Team for winning the N.C. 2A State Championship.

bridge when the city doesn’t know the railroad’s plans. Even if he supported a three-track bridge, Councilman Brian Miller said the city isn’t in a financial position to build one. The city still needs to solve the problem of emergency vehicles getting across the railroad tracks, Miller said, but for now he supports no action. Mayor Pro Tem Maggie Blackwell said a three-track replacement bridge would significantly impair the character of an historic neighborhood and affect the property of a resident. Historic neighborhoods draw visitors to Salisbury and generate revenue for local businesses, she said. Contact reporter Emily Ford at 704-797-4264.

Duke Energy recommends setting the air conditioner to the highest comfortable setting. “Adjusting your thermostat up a few degrees will have a significant impact on your cooling bill,” officials said in a statement. A change from 73 degrees to 76 degrees — 24 hours a day


When the temperatures rise many people think twice before bumping up their air conditioners for fear of raising energy bills. Now is the time to take control of your energy bill with these tips from Duke Energy: • Think before you chill. Heating and cooling the home can account for more than half of the energy used.




NC House authorizes anti-abortion license plate RALEIGH (AP) — The North Carolina House is backing an effort to put an anti-abortion message on license plates and rejecting tags bearing an abortion rights phrase. The House voted 70-44 on Tuesday to authorize dozens of new specialty plates available for a $25 extra annual fee, including one bearing the message “Choose Life.” Nonprofit pregnancy counseling centers opposed to abortion would collect $15 from each plate sold. Carteret County Republican Rep. Pat McElraft says anti-abortion advocates want the plates to raise money for Carolina Pregnancy Care Fellowship and “save some babies lives.” Democrats said license plates shouldn’t be a forum for fighting the abortion issue. The House rejected an amendment that would have added a license plate with the abortion rights message “Respect Choice.”

Pilot reported fire moments before crash in mountains UNAKA (AP) — The pilot of a plane that crashed last month in the North Carolina mountains reported a fire on board and then never responded to questions from air traffic controllers. A preliminary accident report released this week from the National Transportation Safety Board said the plane plunged several hundred feet after the pilot declared an emergency and disappeared from the controllers’ radar screens. Four people killed in the May 25 crash in a rugged part of Cherokee County were identified as 27-yearold pilot Matthew Shuey of Nicholasville, Ky.; 23-year-old Tiffany Maggard, 22-year-old Kassie Robinson and 20-year-old Miranda Morgan. The three friends from Knott County, Ky., spent a week in Alabama and were flying back to Hazard, Ky. Three witnesses told investigators the plane’s engines started revving just before it crashed.

NC House gives initial OK to immigration checks RALEIGH (AP) — Companies that want to do business with North Carolina cities and counties would have to make sure they aren’t hir-

ing illegal workers under legislation that passed an initial state House vote. The legislation tentatively approved 75-43 would require local governments, government contractors and their subcontractors to use the federal E-Verify records system to check newly hired employees. State government, universities and community colleges have used the online program maintained by the federal government for five years. Companies that employ fewer than 25 workers or use seasonal workers who work less than 90 days a year would be exempt from checking immigration status. Supporters say the legislation would open up jobs by forcing out people not entitled to work. Opponents say E-Verify too often erroneously reports people as illegal.

Heat exhaustion strikes troops on Fort Bragg run FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — A Fort Bragg soldier remains in intensive care from a heat-related injury suffered during a 10-kilometer run that also sent 10 other soldiers to the hospital. The Fayetteville Observer reported Tuesday that more than 500 of the 3,000 paratroopers who participated in the run were unable to finish. The soldiers were treated and released for heat-related injuries at Womack Army Medical Center. Two others remained hospitalized overnight. Another was treated and released for an ankle injury. The North Carolina climate office reported the temperature at Fort Bragg at the time of the early Thursday morning run was 78 degrees and humidity was 80 percent.

Graduation could require Founding Fathers tests RALEIGH (AP) — Republicans legislators believe the survival of the American republic requires graduating North Carolina students to understand the principles which helped form the country. The House Education Committee on Tuesday approved a bill that would require public high schools to teach and students to pass a semester-long course on the concepts behind the founding of the United States. Testing would start in the fall of 2014.

Officials think team is behind arson cases SNEADS FERRY (AP) — Investigators think a team of two arsonists may be responsible for up to a dozen fires in Onslow County, including a 60-acre forest fire. The Daily News of Jacksonville reported that investigators with the state Forestry Service think a weekend blaze in Sneads Ferry was the work of arsonists who have struck elsewhere in the area. Forestry Ranger Ricky Adkins says the locations of the dozen or so fires have been in remote areas within a few miles of each other. Adkins says most of the fires have been small. Some unoccupied homes have been burned. Saturday’s fire was the largest so far, with forestry officials evacuating seven homes and closing a road until the flames were under control.

UNC faculty win awards for science, energy work CHAPEL HILL (AP) — Three professors at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have received nearly $2 million in research awards from the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy. UNC officials said Erik J. Alexanian, assistant professor of chemistry, and Jason L. Metcalfe, assistant professor of mathematics, won National Science Foundation honors for exemplary research and education by young teacher-scholars. Rene Lopez, assistant professor of physics and astronomy, was awarded by the Energy Department for demonstrating outstanding work early in his career. Alexanian has received $550,000 to study chemical reactions in hydrocarbons. Metcalfe has received more than $400,000 to research black holes. Lopez’s grant of more than $800,000 is to work to design a new high-efficiency solar cell.

School district to require moment of silence GREENVILLE (AP) — Pitt County schools will be a little more quiet this fall, at least for a moment or two every day. The Daily Reflector of Greenville reports the county school board voted Monday to require a daily moment of silence for all schools starting with the coming school year. Board member Worth Forbes first proposed the idea in January. He says students will benefit from the time for silent reflection. The school board voted 6-4 to approve the policy. Members of the board who voted against the proposal say they would prefer the moment of silence to be optional rather than mandatory.

Wildfire continues to expand in Dare County MANTEO (AP) — Smoke from a Dare County wildfire fire is causing air quality problems for residents as far south as Brunswick County. WITN-TV reported Tuesday that weather conditions are favorable for the fire at Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge to continue to spread. The fire has grown from almost 30,000 acres to 45,000 acres since Friday and is now 65 percent contained, down from 80 percent on Friday. About 240 firefighters from 22 states are working on the blaze which started May 5 Officials say road closures may be necessary if conditions worsen. High-level air quality alerts are in effect for Beaufort, Carteret, Dare, Hyde, Pamlico, Tyrrell and


Teen suspended for soliciting nude photos RALEIGH (AP) — A Raleigh middle school student has been suspended after officials and the state Bureau of Investigation found evidence he had solicited pornographic photos from fellow students. Wake County court documents show that SBI agents also seized a laptop computer and a cell phone from the teenager’s home. The Martin Middle School student is accused of threatening a female student by telling her he would put her nude photo online unless she

sent more photos. The suspect’s name has not been released because of his age. School authorities were alerted by another student and found sexually explicit images on the boy’s phone. The student was suspended for violations of sexual harassment, extortion and bullying rules.

200 dogs and other pets removed from Zebulon home ZEBULON (AP) — Franklin County officials have removed some 200 animals from a home criticized by an animal welfare organization. Animal Services director Graham Stalling says he obtained a warrant Monday to take the animals from Renee Jean Long of Zebulon. Agents removed 25 dogs plus ducks, pigeons and chickens. Authorities found three dead puppies and three others that were seriously ill. Stalling says he responded to complaints from a neighbor about seeing an animal carcass and rats, as well as smelling foul odors. The rescued animals were taken to various animal shelters across the state. Kim Alboum with the North Carolina chapter of the Humane Society of the United States says it appeared Long was running a breeding operation and was selling the animals online.

Granville Co. school administration laptops stolen OXFORD (AP) — Granville County school officials say confidential employee information was taken when a thief broke into the finance department at the school administration building and stole three laptop computers. The Henderson Dispatch reported Tuesday that school system employees have been notified and asked to be on the lookout for any signs that their personal information is being used. The break-in occurred in the early morning hours Thursday. School spokesman Stan Winborne says the information on the computers is password protected and is not likely to be accessed by unauthorized individuals. The school system filed a report with the Oxford Police Department.

Have you noticed a postage stamp logo on your favorite cereal or bread packaging? It’s right there on the front, that black and gold icon. Do you know what it means? It is issued by the Whole Grains Council to identify products that are 100 percent whole grains, or contain at least half a serving (8 grams) of whole grains. But you might be wondering what exactly is a whole grain? It is the seed (or kernel) of the plant in its complete, natural state, and it has three main parts: the bran, the germ, and the endosperm. When the seeds are processed, or refined, the bran and the germ are often removed, resulting in lost protein and nutrients. In their entirety, grains contain antioxidants, B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium, iron, and fiber, which according to the Whole Grains Council, reduce the risks of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and obesity. The U.S. Dietary Guidelines recommend adults eat at least half their grains as whole grains. But, you don’t have to look to that handy little stamp as the only source of whole grains, you can start with the whole grains themselves! They may even already be in your pantry. On the list you will find barley, buckwheat, cornmeal/polenta, millet, steel cut and old-fashioned whole oats, quinoa (pronounced keen-wah), brown and wild rice, and wheat berries. Keep in mind, every little bit counts! Start small and soon you will be seeking out the satisfying, nutritious taste of whole grains. Easy ways that add up include switching white breads and pastas for whole wheat, and white rice for brown or wild rice. You can also use crushed bran cereal in place of bread crumbs, top your toast with rolled oats, and add quinoa or barley to ground meat recipes for texture, flavor, and nutritional value. To stock up your pantry, purchase grains in bulk, since they keep well and are more affordable without expensive packaging. They can be stored for a few months in an airtight container in a cool, dark cabinet or up to a year in the freezer. If you are purchasing a packaged product, read the ingredients and look for 100 per cent whole grain or 100 per cent whole wheat with no refined or processed grain ingredients. Be careful of misleading statements such as “made with whole grains” that may also include refined flour. Whole grains are local! At Hoffner Organic Farms in Mt. Ulla, wheat is planted in October and harvested in June. The wheat is then ground using a family-sized grinder and made into all-

I use this flour for all my baking needs, from cookies and cakes to pizza crusts and muffins. Basic preparation for any of the other grains is similar to rice. Add boiling water and let them simmer until desired tenderness. On my Green Kitchen blog ( chen), you’ll find a link to cooking times, as well as other resources for whole grain information and preparation.

Dipping sauce: ketchup, Texas Pete, garlic salt, pepper, agave or brown sugar (mix to taste)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, mash black beans, stir in onion, garlic, spices, quinoa, and egg. Mix well, mashing again if needed. Add cheese and bread crumbs to thicken until desired cake texture. Form into palm size patties no more than ¾-inch thickness. Transfer to cookie sheet (use foil or nonstick spray) and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until solid, depending on the original

New to the Salisbury Farmers Market last week was the much awaited locally grown corn. Miller Farm has begun harvesting and you can expect to see corn this week. Come early because it sells out fast. They also have half runners and stringless green beans. The first okra of the season was available at the Eagle Produce booth. There was a good supply of small, tender pods and you will be able to obtain okra for the remainder of the growing season. Have you ever heard of a candy onion? Correll Farms has grown these onions and they are exceptionally good. They are larger than other varieties and much sweeter. Squash, zucchini, beets, potatoes, cabbage and onions were plentiful last week as well as cucumbers and tomatoes. There were also peppers, sugar snap peas, egg plant, kale, collards, radishes, carrots and much more. In all there were nine vendors displaying fresh produce which provided the shoppers with a tremendous variety of seasonal fruit and vegetables. Plants for landscaping and containers were still being offered in abundance, both annuals and perennials. Some of the favorite perennials on hand were butterfly bush, Russian sage and cone flower. Available in annuals were the ever favorite zinnia as well as coleus and impatience. Among the herbs offered were rosemary, sage, basil and parsley. There were numerous ready-made hanging baskets and containers that were very colorful and impressive. As always, there are also baked goods, meat and handicrafts available as well. Debit and credit cards are accepted as well as WIC and senior vouchers and food stamps.

Reviving printer cartridge by dipping it in hot water I am forever amazed by the ingenuity of my readers. Take printer ink cartridges for home computers. They can be really expensive. Using up every last smidgen of ink or toner is the reason we take them out and shake them to disMARY lodge every HUNT bit. But heat that puppy up to get the job done? I’d never thought of it until I heard from today’s first tipster. I can’t guarantee this will work for your particular situation, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it does. Print Cartridge Rescue. I bought an ink cartridge for my computer, and it must have been old because after about a month it would not print. The store would not take it in return, so I decided to partially dip the cartridge itself in hot water, hoping that the heat would thin the ink. It worked! I have done this several times with the same cartridge, and

Melt Away. I placed several bags of hamburger and hotdog buns right on top of my hot toaster oven. Much to my distress, the packaging design and information melted right into the top of the oven. What a mess! I decided I couldn’t make it any worse, so I turned the oven on for a minute or two, grabbed my Goo Gone (look for this in the paint aisle in a home center like Home Depot or Lowe’s) and a paper towel. I got almost all of the gunk off the surface. I removed what remained with Bar Keepers Friend (in most supermarkets with household cleansers). My oven hasn’t looked this good for years, and the surface doesn’t have a scratch on it. — Kay,

Dishwasher Detergent Storage. I buy automatic dishwasher detergent in large, heavy boxes. I fill up a 2quart drink pitcher and store it in a cabinet next to the dishwasher. Instead of bringing the container to the dishwasher, I use a long-handled scoop to fill the dishwasher’s detergent cup. It is easy and keeps the powder dry. — Karen,

Newlywed frets about running into the exes Dear Amy: I am a newlywed. How should I handle running into my husband’s two ex-girlfriends? Both of these women affected my husband’s life very negatively, but no matter how much time goes by, he says they still keep emailing him as though nothing bad ever happened. One emailed him while we were on our honeymoon. My husband tells me about ASK the emails, and AMY then he usually deletes them. The most recent one was a query about some things of hers she left with him 10 years ago. He responded politely. These women both live nearby. I can’t shake the feeling that they will cross our path. I can’t imagine showing courtesy to people who have shown my husband no such consideration. I have no desire to be rude, but I’m not interested in being polite, either. What do you suggest? — New to “Newlywed Game” Dear New: Of course these exgirlfriends will cross your path. Because that’s what exes do. Ex-girlfriends cross your path

until they tire of you. And then they move on, like antelope crossing the savannah. The best rule for dealing with anyone you dread seeing is also the simplest. Be polite. Why? Because it is always right to be polite. Being polite — not dramatic, not sophomoric — will make the exes tire of you more quickly. Also, your husband could shut this down very easily by not responding (even politely) to their emails. Dear Amy: I’d like to respond to “Marsha,” who didn’t know what to do for a friend who is dying of cancer. My brother recently died of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. I was most grateful for two letters from friends that he had the chance to read before his death. They reminded him of shared memories, highlighted his most special qualities and reiterated how much he meant to them. They said how much they loved him and how they would miss him. He shared them with me so proudly. — Another Reader Dear Reader: This sort of warmth and affection can be expressed even at a distance. Thank you. Tribune Media ServiceS

They just never learn he lesson never seems to sink in: There is no true privacy or confidentiality online, especially in the social media. What is private tends to become public, whether through carelessness, malice or hackers. Teenagers do seem to learn this, but at some cost in chagrin and embarrassment. At age 46 and a member of Congress, Anthony Weiner should have known this but clearly did not. With incredible recklessness, over three years he carried on a secret sex life through Facebook, Twitter and email with women he met online. Then the inevitable happened. A photo of his crotch while wearing underwear that he had sent to a Seattle college student surfaced on a conservative website and a promising political career ground to a shame-faced halt. Weiner, a seven-term Democrat from New York, would have quite likely been the next mayor of New York. He had emerged as the chief spokesman for his party’s liberal wing, and with his in-your-face Big Apple style, its chief combatant with conservative Republicans. His future in WEINER the party seemed blessed when former President Bill Clinton presided over his marriage last year to an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. When the lewd photo from his Twitter account appeared two weeks ago, Weiner said his account must have been hacked. On Monday, he conceded he had been lying and that the photo was his, as were subsequent photos of him bare-chested, and another of him leering at the camera in a T-shirt. Despite Republican calls for his resignation, he said he would not resign, and that he would welcome an investigation by the House ethics committee. On the surface, what Weiner did may have been stupid and reckless, but not illegal. His one vulnerability is a House rule that requires members to conduct themselves “at all times in a manner that reflects creditably on the House.” The committee may rap his knuckles, but his raunchy escapades fall short of grounds for expulsion. His political future rests in the hands of his constituents. According to Associated Press interviews with voters in his Brooklyn and Queens district, they seem inclined to forgive him, at least to the extent of voting for him again. Members of Congress do recover from scandal — the best example perhaps being the late Sen. Ted Kennedy — but it’s rare, and the once-fast-rising Weiner may likely find himself consigned to the back benches. In humiliating episodes like this, the question inevitably arises: What was he thinking? And the answer inevitably is: He wasn’t.

Borrow money from a pessimist — they don’t expect it back. — Anonymous

Moderately Confused

Britain’s bad example U.S. should beware of traveling same road ELFAST, Northern Ireland — The extinct political slogan “As Maine goes, so goes the nation” may be supplanted by what is happening in the United Kingdom. There is a form of functional political illiteracy here that does not bode well for the United States should it follow Britain’s very bad example, particularly on matters involving immigration and health care. For several years, the British media have been full of horror stories about failures in the National Health Service (NHS). “Thousands of Elderly at Risk in Care Crisis” screamed the frontpage headline in the Times of London last week. This is nothing new, because a headline in The Daily Telegraph nearly CAL two years ago THOMAS warned, “Cruel and Neglectful Care of One Million NHS Patients Exposed.” Is anyone listening? “Specialist NHS Clinics Are 20 Times More Likely to Botch Hip Operations,” reported The Daily Mail in 2009. It gets worse. “Standards of Care in Some Wards Would Shame a Third World Country,” reported the Telegraph that same year, along with “NHS Spends Thousands on Climate Change Handbook” and “Patients More Likely to Go Hungry Than Prisoners.” The Telegraph now reports that the “terminally ill” will be asked by their doctors how they would like to die and to write it down so the NHS will know. Will government then assist them to stop the care meter from running? Death panels, anyone? Last November The Daily Mail reported, “Britain has fewer doctors per head of population than most countries in the Western World — and owns far less hi-tech equipment such as cancer scanners because it cannot afford them.” That’s because, said the newspaper, while “UK health spending is on a par with other prosperous countries ... its people are less healthy because too much of the money goes towards GPs’ and consultants’ pay packets.” Waiting times to see a specialist are legion. This meltdown in the NHS is approaching a


crisis moment. Last week, The Telegraph ran a story headlined “Reform or Die, Lansley Tells NHS.” Health Secretary Andrew Lansley says the NHS is facing a £20 billion per year (about $32 billion USD) black hole unless controversial reforms are implemented (meaning people will have to do more for themselves or taxes will be raised in an already heavily taxed nation). In an interview with the newspaper, Lansley said the “financial crisis” in the NHS "would see annual health spending double to £230 billion ($375 billion USD) a year without urgent reform.” And then there is the disappearance of Britain’s once proud work ethic, thanks to the expansion of the welfare state under the Labour Party. The Daily Mail reports that between 1997 and 2010, under Labour, “the number of households in which no one has ever had a job almost doubled from 184,000 to 352,000.” Quoting the Office for National Health Statistics, The Mail notes, “This equates to more than 550,000 people for whom worklessness has become a way of life.” Worse, “seven out of 10 adults in those households admit they have no intention of ever going to work.” This is the triumph of the entitlement mentality. America, beware! A dysfunctional British immigration system has allowed 256,000 asylum-seekers over the past 20 years to be granted “amnesty,” according to the Daily Mail. “74,500 cases have been put in storage because the applicants simply cannot be found.” Add to these concerns the huge number of Muslim immigrants who display no desire to be assimilated into British life, the high abortion rate among the British, and the increasing secularization of culture and you have predictors of where America may be headed if it does not turn back on these attitudes and behavior patterns. The spread of infection from an E. coli outbreak in the UK does not appear as threatening to the nation’s future as the numerous infections of another kind.

Edwards, Easley: Two fallen stars ALEIGH — Perhaps their shared circumstances are simply coincidence. John Edwards and Mike Easley, once two of North Carolina’s most prominent politicians, both came to their positions with minimal help from the state’s political establishment. Edwards financed his own U.S. EASLEY Senate campaign in 1998; Easley began his political life as a state prosecutor, struck up a friendship with key Democratic Party figure Tony Rand, and then spent much of the rest of his political career trying to ignore the party establishment. SCOTT Now the two DeMOONEYHAM mocrats share the distinction of being criminally indicted for actions associated with their political careers. The similarities may end there. Easley ultimately pleaded guilty last fall to a single felony charge of filing a false campaign finance report. The plea deal came after a wide-ranging investigation looking at campaign contributions and unreported campaign flights, sweetheart land deals, hidden home repairs and environmental permits issued by his administration. Edwards faces six criminal charges. They all revolve around his botched personal life and the money used to hide his now highly-publicized affair during the 2008 presidential campaign. The money came from two prominent political donors, but never touched campaign accounts. Many observers saw Easley as getting off light, and benefiting when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a federal law that had been a favorite to prosecute political corruption. Some observers can hardly believe that Ed-


wards has been indicted at all. He and his lawyers must agree. They turned down a plea to three misdemeanors to fight the charges. Then again, finding a less sympathetic public figure in America today than John Edwards would be a difficult chore. His deceptions — having that affair while EDWARDS his wife was battling cancer, getting a campaign aide to claim responsibility for his love child, repeatedly lying about it all — seem to know no end. The indictment, though, looks a lot like an attempt to bend and prod the law to cover behavior for which it was never intended. Prosecutors apparently will argue the money that went to Edwards’ mistress Rielle Hunter amounted to illegal campaign contributions because it came from two donors and because hiding the affair benefited the campaign. Regardless of Edwards’ fate, I know who I’d rather go sit with and drink a beer. Whatever his flaws, Easley was and is someone who cared about his family and didn’t walk around sporting an ego the size of Texas. If the former governor is different from Edwards in that regard, the similarities in their political backgrounds shouldn’t be overlooked in trying to assess what went wrong with two of North Carolina’s most promising political stars of the late 1990s. Perhaps being a self-made politician is dangerous business. When you need very few helping hands on the way to the top, maybe it becomes too easy to believe that a lot of the rules don’t apply to you. Maybe a rapid ride to the top makes much more likely a quick fall to the bottom. • • • Scott Mooneyham writes about state government for Capitol Press Association.

The average American watches more than four hours of TV each day (or 28 hours per week, or two months of nonstop TVwatching per year). In a 65-year life, that person will have spent nine years glued to the tube. The number of TV sets in the average U.S. household is 2.24. Millions of Americans are so hooked on television that they fit the criteria for substance abuse as defined in psychiatric manuals. But did you ever wonder how this came about? Piedmont Players Theater’s production of “The Farnsworth Invention” tells some of the history and the competition behind the invention of the television. Who was Philo Farnsworth? How did the idea go from a bubble in his head to over a billion televisions sold? Go see this play and find out. The show is well-acted, simply set and full of humor as well as information. Also, you will have the advantage of two hours spent in an air-conditioned theater. Never heard the title? Go see it anyway. This show will give you something to actually think about the next time you turn on your television. The shows will run Wednesday through Saturday at the Meroney Theater in downtown Salisbury.

A note of thanks I would like to thank Melvin Austin for recovering and returning my wallet. It was lost on June 3 at the Aldi’s in Fort Mill, S.C. I knew it was gone within 10 minutes, and in that 10 minutes it was removed from where I inadvertently left it. I returned only to be told that no one had turned it in. Since this community is not one of high crime, I was disheartened that someone would just keep it and toss it when they got what they wanted from it. I returned to Aldi’s a couple of times, again being told it had not been turned in. Lo and behold, in the mail today (June 6) from Melvin Austin of Salisbury was my wallet. I’m not sure how it wound up in his possession, but I am grateful for his time and honesty. So many times we concentrate on the bad things that are going on. Mr. Austin, you have restored my faith in people. God bless you and your family. — Angela Upchurch Tega Cay, S.C.

Obama concerned about slowing 23 killed, 6 missing in floods, economy but not second recession mudslides after rains pound Haiti

Democrats decline to defend Weiner after online sex scandal WASHINGTON (AP) — Fellow Democrats pointedly refused to defend Rep. Anthony Weiner on Tuesday, telegraphing an unmistakable eagerness for him to resign after he admitted sending a lewd photo of himself to a woman via Twitter and lying about it. Republicans swiftly sought political profit from the New York Democrat’s predicament, which threatened to deepWEINER en when conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart said he had a sexually explicit photo of the 46-year-old congressman. His political career in extreme jeopardy, Weiner had no public appearances. His spokesman did not respond to repeated requests for comment. On Monday, after days of denials, the New York lawmaker admitted he had engaged in “several inappropriate conversations conducted over Twitter, Facebook, email and occasionally on the phone with women I had met online.” Alternately apologetic and defiant, he said he neither met nor had physical relationships with any of them, and added, “I am not resigning.”

Cantor ‘cautiously optimistic’ debt talks will produce deal WASHINGTON (AP) — A key GOP negotiator in talks on lifting the government’s borrowing cap said Tuesday that it may take more than a decade to accumulate savings to pay off the approximately $2.4 trillion in new debt needed to keep the government afloat for about a year and a half. Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., also said that he believes any agreement to raise the so-called debt ceiling — and avoid a market-ratCANTOR tling, firstever default on U.S. obligations — should be enacted sometime next month, before an Aug. 2 deadline. Kyl is a participant in toplevel talks aimed at producing spending cuts to pass in concert with the debt limit increase. “A debt ceiling increase is only over roughly an 18-month period of time. The savings could play out (over) more than a decade,” Kyl told reporters. The time frame is important because spreading the cuts over a longer period means that they would be less severe than if they were imposed over a decade, as is typical for legislation considered by Congress.

Kyl’s comments came as House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., told his GOP colleagues that he’s “cautiously optimistic” that ongoing budget talks led by Vice President Joe Biden will produce an agreement on budget cuts at least as large as the accompanying increase in the government’s ability to borrow. Cantor, R-Va., representing the Republican-controlled House, told fellow lawmakers in an email Monday that the Biden-led group is scrubbing all of the major spending programs of the federal budget for potential savings, including health care programs for the elderly and the poor.

Wildfire in Arizona mountains 2nd largest in state history SPRINGERVILLE, Ariz. (AP) — Bulldozers scraped away brush and trees on Tuesday to create a barrier between two eastern Arizona mountain towns and a mammoth wildfire. Crews removed brush from around homes and firefighters were sent to protect other buildings from the flames. All the while, the 7,000 residents of Eagar and Springerville prepared to leave if the second-largest wildfire in state history edges closer. “If given the word, then I’m gonna go,” Eagar resident Gerald McCardle said. “We’re already packed. We packed last night, and we’re out of here.” Officials say the blaze has already burned 486 square miles and is about 10 miles outside the towns. Winds have been driving the flames 5 to 8 miles a day since the fire began a week ago, possibly from an unattended campfire. Strong afternoon winds are already kicking up and could send the flames to within several miles of the towns, triggering evacuation orders.

Pawlenty rolls out economic policy that aims for growth CHICAGO (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty pitched an economic plan Tuesday that includes deep cuts in personal and business taxes to spur the struggling U.S. economy but would add to deficits in the short term in the hope that badly needed jobs would follow. The former Minnesota governor’s PAWLENTY plan aims for a bullish 5 percent annual growth that would balance the federal budget while forgoing trillions of dollars in tax revenue. Pawlenty’s pitch assumes the benefits of his plan would kick in and eventually make up for its initial costs. His own team acknowledged the assumptions were aggressive. One critic called it “patently ridiculous.” “Growing at 5 percent a year rather than the current level of 1.8 percent would net us millions of new jobs, trillions of dollars in new wealth, put us on a path to saving our entitlement programs,” Pawlenty said in his first detailed speech on economic policy since he formally declared his White House ambitions a little over two weeks ago. The economy averaged 4.9 percent growth between 1983 and 1987, and grew at a 4.7 percent rate between 1996 and 1999. A sustained annual growth of 5 percent for a decade would be unprecedented in modern times.

Clinton heads to Persian Gulf to plot strategy with allies WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will confer later this week with NATO nations and others prosecuting an air campaign in Libya that has recently become more intense and apparently more focused on Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi. Clinton was heading for the United Arab Emirates, where she and other members of the so-called Contact Group on Libya will assess the effort to get Gadhafi to leave and in-

crease support for the country’s opposition. NATO has stepped up its operation this week, launching a ferocious series of nearly 30 daytime airstrikes on Tripoli to limit Gadhafi’s ability to fight the rebels and attack civilians. Gadhafi responded by angrily denouncing the rebels and vowing not to surrender. The meeting Clinton is to attend Thursday in Abu Dhabi is aimed at refining the strategy and setting the stage for a postGadhafi Libya despite his refusal to back down and attempts to crush the rebels.

For many Americans, Internet sex is the same as cheating Jon Austin’s wife, Amy, had a blunt assessment for her husband as the Minneapolis couple watched Rep. Anthony Weiner’s stunning confessions on television this week. “You’d be dead,” she told him. Regardless of his professional future, it’s Weiner’s predicament at home that seems to be launching countless discussions among couples like the Austins. And this time, it’s not a question of actual physical cheating — a la Eliot Spitzer and his prostitution scandal — but the murkier backdrop of Internet relationships: sexting, tweeting lewd photos, emailing. If it’s virtual, does it constitute infidelity? Many Americans seem to think it does. “Would you text it, post it, send it with your spouse looking over your shoulder?” asks Austin, 52, who works in corporate public relations and takes no issue with his wife’s frank appraisal of the situation. “If yes, then it’s not infidelity. If no, you’re cheating.” In online postings and follow-up phone calls with The Associated Press, dozens of people echoed the same thought: Cheating need not be physical.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Heavy rain hammered southern Haiti for a seventh straight day Tuesday, triggering floods and mudslides and causing houses and shanties in the capital to collapse. The official death toll was 23 but could rise as remnants of the storm lingered. Haitian authorities listed six people as missing. Runoff from the rain sent rivers surging and flooded many homes as people scrambled to their rooftops. The slow-moving storm system also toppled trees and debris blocked streets throughout the capital. At least 23 people were killed and more than a dozen injured, said Edgar Joseph, a spokesman for Haiti’s Civil Protection Department. Most of the deaths were in Port-auPrince and they included two who died over the weekend, he said. Thirteen people died in Petionville, a hillside city southeast of downtown Portau-Prince, Joseph said. In one incident, a concrete house slid down a ravine and crashed into several smaller homes. A 53-year-old man, Jean Wildor Charutis, said his older sister and a niece died in the large house that crashed down the ravine. “There was so much rain it shook the house,” he said as he and government rescue workers searched for survivors. The storm system has saturated much of the Caribbean in recent days, with flooding reported in the neighboring Dominican Republic as well as in Jamaica, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Authorities reported two deaths in the Dominican Republic and one in Jamaica to the weather. Civil defense authorities in the Dominican Republic said 25 homes were destroyed and more than 8,400 people were evacuated. The dead included a 13-year-old boy who was swept away and

Salmonella illnesses drive increase in food poisonings, CDC says ATLANTA (AP) — More Americans got food poisoning last year, with salmonella cases driving the increase, the government reported Tuesday. Illness rates for the most common serious type of E. coli fell last year. There was a rise in cases caused by other strains of the bacteria, although that bump may just reflect more testing was done for them, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. An unusually aggressive strain of E. coli is behind the current large outbreak of food poisoning in Europe, mostly in Germany. That strain has never caused an outbreak in the U.S. The CDC estimates that 50 million Americans each year get sick from foodborne illnesses, including about 3,000 who die. The report released Tuesday is based on foodborne infections in only 10 states, or about 15 percent of the American population. But it has information that other databases lack and is believed to be a good indicator of food poisoning trends. More than 19,000 cases of food poisoning were reported in those states last year. That was up from 17,500 cases in 2009, and about 18,500 in 2008.

Bear takes a dip in home spa SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A central Florida woman got a surprise when a black bear decided to cool off in her backyard spa. Jenny Sue Rhoades was inside her Seminole County home Friday morning when she first noticed the bear. Living just a few miles from Wekiva Springs State Park, she had seen bears in her yard before. But instead of passing through, Rhoades says the bear pushed through her screen and walked over to her spa, which she doesn’t keep heated in the summer. At first, the bear just bent down for a drink but then jumped all the way. The bear didn’t have long to relax before Rhoades went outside and banged on her patio table to scare the animal off. The bear left without incident.

A woman reacts at the site of a deadly landslide in Portau–Prince, Haiti, on Tuesday. Heavy rain hammered southern Haiti for a seventh straight day on Tuesday, triggering floods and mudslides and causing houses and shanties in the capital to collapse. drowned while watching a river swell near Santo Domingo. In Haiti, the week of pounding rain has deepened the misery for tens of thousands of people living in the tent-and-tarp settlements that sprung up after the January 2010 earthquake. Aid groups have warned that the wet weather could worsen a cholera outbreak that has killed more than 5,300 people since October. Michel Davison, a coordinator for the International Desk of the U.S. National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, said satellite data indicate that rain drenched Haiti along the border with the Dominican Republic for at least six hours Monday night, dumping between four to six inches. “That’s a fairly intense rainfall amount,” Davison said in a phone interview. “That’s been happening now for five, seven days. The ground is so saturated at this point that it doesn’t take much to produce floods.” Davison said Haiti will see more rain Wednesday, but should get a much-needed reprieve later the week. Two children died and

three others were injured in the Nazon neighborhood in Port-au-Prince after the wall of a home fell on them, according to the Civil Protection Department. Meanwhile, hospitals saw an influx of patients. Doctors at a hospital run by the Miami aid group Project Medishare treated at least 10 people for injuries, including a puncture wound, said Gabriele Denis, a hospital administrator. Aid group Doctors Without Borders treated at least 10 people, many of them injured when walls fell on them, said Sylvain Groulx, chief of mission for Doctors Without Borders. Haiti’s newly elected President Michel Martelly took to national television just before midnight to calm the nation as the storm was still passing over the city. “This message is to tell the population that I’m with you,” the president said. Martelly ordered government construction workers to show up to work early Tuesday to help remove debris. Rains earlier this week prompted the government and international aid groups to evacuate dozens of families who live around the overflowing Lake Azuei.

WASHINGTON (AP) — With few options at hand and his poll numbers sagging, President Barack Obama expressed concern Tuesday about the sudden slowdown in the economy but said he is not worried about a second recession and the nation should “not panic.” The president spoke about the new economic trouble in detail for the first time since a report late last week showed job growth had slowed sharply in May. He tried to reassure Americans worried about high unemployment and expensive gas that the nation is on a slow, if not steady, path to recovery. “I am concerned about the fact that the recovery that we’re on is not producing jobs as quickly as I want it to happen,” Obama said at an appearance with visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel. “We don’t yet know whether this is a one-month episode or a longer trend.” Either way, there appears to be little Washington can do about it. Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke, speaking in Atlanta on Tuesday, acknowledged the economy has lost momentum but said nothing to suggest the Fed was about to take any bold new action to further shore it up.

The Intimidator mascot’s uniform carries his name on the back of his ‘uniform.’

JOB FROM 1a through the alligator’s mouth, McLean had no peripheral vision. She’s only 5 feet, 7 inches tall. “Just give us what you can,” an appreciative Pizzuto said. The Intimidators’ regular mascot, Jason Patrick, had another commitment Monday, prompting the staff to seek a last-minute replacement among all the volunteers who had shown up for “Education Day.” McLean, 24, stepped forward even though she had never worn a mascot suit. Steadied by Pizzuto, she emerged from the pressbox as Tim E. Gator and headed down the third-base side of the concourse. A middleschool boy spotted her first, and running like a linebacker, he crashed into her for a hug, snapping the giant head backward and almost knocking her down. Over the next 15 minutes, Tim E. Gator accepted countless other hugs, posed for group photographs and waved his wiggly fingers at all the fans. Pizzuto soon guided the mascot back to the air-conditioned pressbox for a break. The outside temperatures already were in the 80s. Alligator head off, a flushed, sweating McLean took swigs from a water bottle. “Yeah,” she confirmed about the costume, “it smells bad. ... It’s raunchy.” Her biggest frustrations were her limited vision, the big feet rubbing together and the realization that her hair was poking out from under the alligator’s head. “If I could see,” she said, “I’d be great to walk around, but I can’t see the kids coming up the side of me.” When McLean starred as a center fielder for the University of Akron’s softball team, she knew something about speed. She set season and career school records for stolen bases, led the Mid-American Conference in swipes and often was ranked among the top 10 nationally. So it was funny — and weird — to see her waddling through a huge crowd of Rowan and Cabarrus County students bused in Monday morning for the Education Day game between the Intimidators and the Rome Braves. McLean only donned the Tim E. Gator costume because she’s a good sport. Now an assistant coach at Pfeiffer University, McLean

showed up at FieldcrestCannon Stadium Monday morning after she received an email the night before, calling for volunteer help for the unusual morning game with all these rambunctious elementary and middle school kids. Andrea Wagner, a Pfeiffer outfielder and sports management major, works as a seasonal intern for the Intimidators, so that was the connection. McLean made the trip to Kannapolis with assistant basketball coach Becca Walters. They assumed they would be ushers or whatever extra adult supervision was needed for the game. McLean had never heard of Tim E. Gator, esquire. Pizzuto solicited N.C. State University intern Steven Becker to chaperone McLean during two more passes through the crowd as the mascot. Returning to the pressbox after the second foray, McLean immediately took off the alligator head and the unwieldy gloves and starting fanning herself. “Oh, my gosh,” she said of the heat, which she judged was at least 100 degrees inside the suit. Becker made a quick inspection of the suit and made a grim discovery. “There’s gum on the back,” he reported. Kids had planted two giant wads on Tim E. Gator during some devious hugs. “Aw, gross,” McLean said. During the offseason, McLean spends a lot of weekends on the recruiting trail. Her family lives back in Canton, Ohio, where she grew up a diehard fan of the Cleveland Indians and Ohio State football. She majored in child development at Akron and said she loves little kids. As the mascot, she said, it was fun to be interacting with them. “Kinda,” she clarified. McLean eventually took

Harper runs the gamut in first year BY JOSEPH WHITE Associated Press

AssociAted press

At 18, Bryce Harper has taken the minors by storm.

HAGERSTOWN, Md. — Bryce Harper took an outside strike and shot a disapproving glance at the umpire. It shouldn’t have been a surprise to the young phenom. The ump had been calling them wide all game. Showing displeasure now — with a man on base in the seventh inning when his team needed runs — was hardly going to help. Three pitches later, Harper struck out by flailing at a pitch that was well outside with the runner going. Another lesson learned by a teenager navigating the backwaters of minor league baseball.

Harper was on the cover of Sports Illustrated when he was 16 and accelerated his way into college, setting himself up to be the No. 1 overall pick by the Washington Nationals in last year’s draft. He signed a $9.9 million contract, the biggest payday for a drafted position player. He added to his legacy shortly after joining the Class A Hagerstown Suns, when he emerged from a slow start and went on an 18-game hitting streak, to the point that he’s now among the South Atlantic League leaders in batting average and homers (.338 and 13 through Sunday’s games). He attributed the turnaround to new contact

lenses, saying he was “blind as a bat” until he got them on April 18 — an instant-legend anecdote that no doubt is already finding its way into a movie script. Nationals fans are, of course, paying attention. Some have started clamoring for Harper’s promotion to the big club. If not now, then very soon. Washington is in last place in the NL East and one of the worst-hitting teams in the majors, so why take the long, slow road with the kid? The answer, for those who see Harper every day, is an easy one. There are dozens of things, from obvious to subtle and tangible to intangible, that go into making a major league

baseball player. Maturity. Baserunning. Learning to work the count. Dealing with the grind. Attitude. Adjusting to umpires. Meshing with teammates in the clubhouse. Harper has a head start on most of them, but he’s mastered maybe three. He’s got a major league arm in the outfield, a powerful swing and is very competitive. Everything else is a work in progress for an 18-year-old who, in another world, would right now be rehashing tales from his senior prom. “One of the biggest sins you can make is putting guys into position where they’re go-



Mavs tie it at 2 BY JAMIE ARON Associated Press

DALLAS — Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks 86 D a l l a s Heat 83 M a v e r icks have pulled off another stunning comeback, tying the NBA finals at two games each. And this time, Nowitzki did it while battling the flu. Nowitzki shook off three poor quarters to score 10 of his 21 points in the final period as the Mavericks outscored the Miami Heat 21-9 over the final 10:12 for an 86-83 victory in a memorable Game 4 Tuesday night. The Mavs avoided going down 3-1, a deficit no team has ever overcome in the finals, and guaranteed the series will return to Miami for a Game 6 on Sunday night. “We just played with incredible heart and passion,” Dallas center Tyson Chandler said. Dwyane Wade scored 32 points, but fumbled an inbounds pass with 6.7 seconds left. He knocked the ball back to Mike Miller for a potential tying 3-pointer, but it wasn’t even close to hitting the rim. Chris Bosh scored 24 points for Miami, but the Heat got a stunningly unproductive game from their biggest star, LeBron James. He scored only eight points, making just 3 of 11 shots. He contributed nine rebounds and seven assists, but his lack of scoring sticks out because of the loss. Nowitzki opened the game looking just fine, making his first three shots. But then he missed 10 of 11, and missed a free throw for the first time since Game 4 of the conference finals. By then, word spread of his illness. With the game — and likely the series — on the line, Nowitzki found a way to come through. He made only 2 of 6 shots, but that included a terrific layup with 14.4 seconds left; he made all six of his free throws. Hey, if he could win Game 2 with a left-handed layup two days after tearing a tendon in the tip of his middle finger, what’s a little temperature? “We all seen him go through walkthroughs,” Chandler said. “Every time he started to talk he started coughing. He was wheezing.” Miami was poised to take a commanding lead in the series when Udonis Haslem hit a jumper that made it 7465 early in the fourth quarter.

Joseph Basinger takes a cut at the plate in south’s 7-5 win against Kernersville tuesday.

South finds meaning, victory BY MIKE LONDON


— Coach Michael S. Rowan 7 L o w m a n Kernersville 5 kicked the dirt in disgust after another impatient South Rowan at-bat in the fifth inning. Lowman, competes hard in croquet, gin rummy or whatever, and he wouldn’t have slept a wink on Tuesday night if South had lost to the visiting Kernersville Junior Bulldogs in an exhibition game that didn’t mean

a thing in anyone’s standings. South managed to win 7-5, scoring the deciding runs in the fifth on a throwing error. Lowman couldn’t quite bring himself to smile about the positive outcome. “We shoulda scored a lot more,” he said. “But there were times we swung at pitches over our heads.” The Bulldogs aren’t a Legion team — they’re a developmental and showcase program. They’re young, with almost all the players in the Class of 2013. But the Dogs also are pretty good, drawing players from

just about everywhere in the world except South Rowan and Carson. Schools represented on the Bulldogs roster include Forsyth Country Day, Southwest Guilford, Northwest Guilford, Mount Tabor, Ledford, Glenn, Raleigh Athens Drive — Josh Hamilton’s old school — and even Virginia Episcopal. It was a competitive, seveninning game that South trailed until the bottom of the fourth. “We won, and it’s really a big boost for us,” first baseman Kyle Bridges said. “We kinda went through a stretch

where we lost a lot of very tough games, so a win of any kind is good for us.” South is dealing with an unusual amount of adversity right now. Preston Penninger, a veteran who was counted on to pitch quality relief innings and spotstart, is no longer with the team. Cory Deason, a DH as well as the backup catcher and third baseman, injured a knee in the Rowan game. Infielder Connor Bridges, Kyle’s younger brother, remains out after a collision concussion. He failed his first con-

cussion test, but coaches are optimistic he’ll be available soon. With a lot of negatives swirling around, Lowman sent Jordan Kennerly to the mound Tuesday. Kennerly pitched sparingly in the high school season for South, but he survived four innings and only walked one. “It was Jordan’s first start in I don’t know when,” Lowman said. “He battled. He gave us a chance.” Youngster Dillon Atwell was the winner in relief with


Rowan scores two in ninth to win BY JORDAN HONEYCUTT

CONCORD — Many of us, includRowan 7 ing Rowan Concord 5 County legion baseball fans, have always known that there are two certainties in life... death and taxes. Well, you can add a third to that list; the left arm of Will Johnson. Johnson came into the game in the pressure-filled bottom of the ninth, with his team mates just having

scored two runs in the top of the ninth, to take a 7-5 lead over Concord. Johnson toed the rubber and delivered his trademark heavy dose of “fastballs,” surrendered just one hit and put the game to bed. “I just threw fastballs like always,” Johnson said. “Avery (Rogers) made some great plays on grounders at third and my defense had my back like they always do.” The bottom of the ninth is winning time in the game of baseball, and Rowan once again buckled down in typical

peculiar fashion. A f t e r Andy Austin laced his third hit to the outfield, Concord pitcher Dillon AUSTIN Ashburn plunked Luke Thomas and intentionally walked Matt Mauldin to load the bases. Nathan Fulbright was then summoned to pinch-hit for Matt Laurens and tapped a lazy, excuse me check swing down the third base line.

Concord third baseman Blaine Hill scooped up the ball and fired an arrant ball to home that HENLEY sailed over the catcher’s mitt and allowed Austin and pinch-runner Alex Morgan to safely slide home for the lead. Concord head coach Jaymie Russ said that he knew what was coming and the fact that they still didn’t stop it, had him

more frustrated than usual. “We were thinking bunt, you know with bases loaded and nobody out, Hill just made a bad throw home and we lost that way, but it’s baseball and sometimes that happens,” Russ said. For the second consecutive game, Rowan scored 3 plus runs in the opening inning. “We definitely started out great early again tonight and jumped on them, but gave it right back with errors,” Rowan coach Jim Gantt said.

Truex Jr. acquires new crew chief Associated Press

The college football notebook ... CHAPEL HILL — The NCAA says it plans to complete its investigation into the North Carolina football program this month. The NCAA on Tuesday sent the university a “notice of inquiry,” a formal notification of an investigation into a sports program. In the letter, NCAA vice president of enforcement Julie Roe Lach says it is the “present intention” of the enforcement staff to finish the investigation in June. The letter is a procedural step in a probe focused on improper benefits and academic misconduct. The school confirmed last summer that NCAA investigators had visited the campus. Fourteen players missed at least one game last season due to the investigation. Seven were ruled out for the entire year, while an eighth was cleared at midseason but decided to redshirt. PRYOR DONE AT OHIO STATE COLUMBUS, Ohio — Terrelle Pryor’s career at Ohio State, which started with so much promise and potential, came to an abrupt and scandal-ridden end. The Ohio State quarterback announced through his attorney Tuesday that he would not play for the Buckeyes this season. He had already been suspended for the first five games for breaking NCAA rules by accepting improper benefits from the owner of a tattoo parlor. “In the best interests of my teammates, I’ve made the decision to forgo my senior year of football at

The Ohio State University,” Pryor said in a statement issued by Columbus lawyer Larry James. Pryor will most likely make himself available for an NFL supplemental draft. “I would hope so. Also, he would hope so,” said James, who added that Pryor was not available for comment. “But he’s going to take the next couple of days to get his head together.” The Cleveland Plain Dealer first reported Pryor’s announcement. The NCAA is looking into all aspects of Ohio State’s once-glittering program, from cash and tattoos to players, cars deals for athletes and other potential violations. Pryor’s announcement comes just eight days after Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel was forced to resign for knowing about the players’ improper benefits but not telling any of his superiors. “He did not want to be a a distraction to his teammates,” James said of Pryor. “This is something he came to consider after much thought.” Ohio State’s athletic director, Gene Smith, quickly issued a statement wishing Pryor the best. “We understand Terrelle’s decision and wish him well in this next phase of his life,” Smith said. “We hope he returns to The Ohio State University one day to finish his degree.” Luke Fickell, who will serve as Ohio State’s interim head coach in place of Tressel this fall, found out about Pryor’s decision on Tuesday night. “I was notified this evening that Terrelle has decided to pursue a professional career,” Fickell said. “I wish him the best in his pursuits.”

Ortiz hits homer in Sox triumph Associated Press

The AL roundup ... NEW YORK — David Ortiz hit a two-run homer and Jonathan Papelbon labored through the ninth inning to earn his 200th save, leading the Boston Red Sox over the New York Yankees 6-4 Tuesday night. Jacoby Ellsbury led off the game with a home run and Adrian Gonzalez hit an RBI triple as the Red Sox roughed up Freddy Garcia (4-5) early to move within two percentage points of the first-place Yankees in the AL East. Working on seven days’ rest, Jon Lester (8-2) gave up three runs and eight hits — seven singles — in six innings. Derek Jeter had two hits to

move within 12 of 3,000. He entered the 10-game homestand with 2,986 and said the most pressure he feels in his march toward the milestone is reaching the mark at Yankee Stadium. Indians 1, Twins 0 CLEVELAND — Carlos Carrasco took a shutout into the ninth inning and the Indians pushed across an unearned run to defeat the Twins, ending a season-high five-game skid. Carrasco (5-3) gave up three hits, struck out six and walked one over 8 1-3 innings as Cleveland avoided its first eight-game losing streak ever at Progressive Field. Orioles 4, Athletics 0 BALTIMORE — J.J. Hardy, Luke Scott and Adam

Jones hit solo homers, Chris Jakubauskas pitched five shutout innings and the Orioles beat Oakland to stretch the Athletics’ losing streak to a season-high eight games. Jones had three hits for the Orioles, who will try to complete a three-game sweep Wednesday night. Baltimore had lost eight straight series to Oakland since July 2007. White Sox 5, Mariners 1 CHICAGO — Paul Konerko and Carlos Quentin homered, and Phil Humber held Seattle’s offense in check as the White Sox beat the Mariners. Konerko’s solo shot in the second inning was his second in as many days and fourth in six games. The homer also marked the 1,000th run of his

career. Blue Jays 8, Royals 5 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Adam Lind and J.P. Arencibia each hit a two-run homer to lead the Blue Jays to a victory over the Royals. Lind homered off Vin Mazzaro (0-1) in a three-run first inning. Jose Bautista was aboard on a single. Tigers 8, Rangers 1 ARLINGTON, Texas — Austin Jackson had three of Detroit’s season-high 20 hits and Rick Porcello won for the sixth time in his last seven outings to help the Tigers beat the Rangers. Porcello (6-3) gave up a run over six innings against the AL West-leading Rangers as the Tigers improved to 8-1 in their last nine games.

Boston Bruins’ right wing Nathan Horton is wheeled off the ice during Game 3 of the stanley cup Finals

NHL still struggles with violence Associated Press

BOSTON — Two players made two bad decisions in an instant, something that happens fairly often in the NHL. Boston’s Nathan Horton watched his pass an instant too long, and Vancouver’s Aaron Rome checked him an instant too late. Both players’ seasons ended in that instant during Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals. Horton dropped to the ice, apparently unconscious on his back with his eyes open and his gloved right hand reaching up frighteningly into empty space, while Rome was sent to the Canucks’ dressing room under a vicious cascade of boos from Bruins fans. The NHL is a volatile cocktail of big men with sticks skating swiftly over a confined ice surface, and those elements collided with devastating impact in the sport’s biggest showcase Monday night. Horton is out for the rest of the NHL’s championship round with a severe concussion, and Rome received a four-game suspension — the longest in Stanley Cup finals history — beginning with the pivotal Game 4 on Wednesday night. “There’s no fun to this,” said Mike Murphy, the NHL executive in charge of dis-


cipline for the series. “There’s no enjoyment to this. Nobody wins in this. Everybody loses. The fans lose. We lost two good hockey players.” Hockey cultivates and even condones violence — fighting is still allowed, after all — yet still struggles to agree on standards to control it. The line between legally aggressive play and dirty tactics is minuscule, and it’s almost impossible to see in an instant. “Only people who have been on the ice can understand how fast it is, and how quick the decision-making process has to be,” said Vancouver defenseman Keith Ballard, who’s likely to step into Rome’s lineup spot. “You feel like there’s no way you can do the right thing sometimes.” Most coaches and players agree the NHL is trying. Concussion awareness has grown tremendously in recent years, with new rules and a safety protocol instituted to protect players from blindside hits and head shots. Yet several prominent players, including Pittsburgh star Sidney Crosby, Nashville’s Matthew Lombardi and Boston’s own high-scoring forward, Marc Savard, still have been seriously hurt by hits of wildly varying legality. Reports of concussions are rising even while dangerous hits diminish.

The NL roundup ... MIAMI — Tommy Hanson pitched six innings and the Atlanta Braves won with only two hits Tuesday night when they sent the Florida Marlins to their sixth consecutive loss, 1-0. Florida’s Brad Hand (0-1) went six innings in his major league debut and allowed just one hit — a homer by Alex Gonzalez leading off the fourth. That was enough against the Marlins, who stranded 10 and went 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position. In the first five games of their homestand, they’ve left 49 men on base while batting .152 with runners in scoring position. Dodgers 6, Phillies 2 PHILADELPHIA — Rubby De La Rosa pitched five effective innings in his first career start and Dee Gordon had three hits in his first start, helping the Dodgers beat the Phillies. De La Rosa (2-0) allowed one run, constantly having to pitch out of trouble because he walked five and gave up four hits. Matt Kemp hit a two-run homer for the Dodgers, who’ve won six of nine. Pirates 8, Diamondbacks 5 PITTSBURGH — Lyle Overbay hit a three-run double to cap a five-run eighth inning and the Pirates rallied for a win over the Diamondbacks. Arizona was in position for its seventh consecutive road win after Daniel Hudson allowed only one earned run through seven innings, but Daniel Hernandez (2-2) did not retire any of the six batters he faced in the eighth. Jose Tabata had an RBI double and Josh Harrison an RBI single before Overbay’s line drive to right-center with the bases loaded. The Diamondbacks lost for the first time in 25 games this season when leading after seven innings. Reds 8, Cubs 2 CINCINNATI — Miguel Cairo hit a grand slam to help

make Edinson Volquez’s return to the majors a success and the Reds continued their dominance of the Cubs. Volquez (4-2), recalled earlier Tuesday from TripleA Louisville, lasted a seasonhigh seven innings. He allowed one run and seven hits while walking two and striking out five. He improved his career record against Chicago to 4-0 in six starts. He also contributed two sacrifice bunts and a rally starting single as Cincinnati sent the Cubs to their eighth consecutive loss — their longest skid since losing eight in a row from May 15 through May 25 of last season. Cardinals 7, Astros 4 HOUSTON — Jake Westbrook shook off early trouble on the mound and helped his cause with a three-run, tie-breaking double to help the St. Louis Cardinals to a win over the Astros. It was the NL-Central leading Cardinals’ fourth straight win. The Astros have lost four in a row. Westbrook (6-3) gave up a two-run homer to Carlos Lee in the first inning, but didn’t allow another earned run to get his fourth win in a row. His bases-loaded, twoout double off Houston starter Brett Myers made it 5-2 in the fourth inning. Mets 2, Brewers 1 MILWAUKEE — Jose Reyes hit a two-run triple to give New York the lead in the seventh inning and the Mets held on to beat the Brewers. Reyes’ triple came off reliever Marco Estrada and wasted an impressive start from Milwaukee’s Shaun Marcum, who pitched six scoreless innings. Prince Fielder hit his 15th home run of the season, a solo shot to give the Brewers the lead in the sixth. But that was the only big mistake of the night for Mets starter Chris Capuano (4-6), a longtime Brewers player making his return to Milwaukee.

Evernham Motorsports. HMS still has 12 races left to fill for Kahne. The team already has in place a deal with Quaker State to sponsor four races a year in 2012 and 2013. Farmers Insurance also holds the naming rights to the planned professional football stadium in Los Angeles, a PGA tour event at Torrey Pines and a tennis event in Los Angeles. TBR FIELDS FOR BODINE CHARLOTTE — Tommy Baldwin Racing will field a car for Geoffrey Bodine in five races this season. The 62-year-old Bodine will try to make the race at Daytona next month for TBR in the No. 35 Chevrolet. The team says it has sponsorship from U.S. military healthcare provider Luke Associates, Inc. Bodine will also attempt to make the races at Charlotte, Talladega, Texas and Homestead. Bodine made his Cup debut in 1979 and won 18 races over 26 years. He made one start last season, finishing 41st in a Baldwin-owned car at Pocono. He made just 23 laps in a startand-park car.

Kahne will be sponsored by Farmers Insurance when he joins Hendrick Motorsports next season. The team said Tuesday that Farmers Insurance, which currently had a five-race deal with HMS, will sponsor 22 Sprint Cup races for the next three seasons. The company will replace as primary sponsor of the No. 5 Chevrolet. That should allow to focus solely on whatever Danica Patrick decides to do next season. “It’s extremely positive when a company of this caliber sees the value of NASCAR and immediately wants to do more,” said team owner Rick Hendrick. “Farmers will have an excellent spokesperson in Kasey, and we’re committed to putting him in a position to win races and championships. Our organization is proud to extend this partnership, and we look forward to a very bright future with everyone at Farmers.” Kahne has represented insurance company Allstate when he was a driver at Gillett

The NASCAR notebook... CHARLOTTE — Martin Truex Jr. will have a new crew chief beginning this weekend at Pocono Raceway. Lead engineer Chad Johnston was selected Tuesday as crew chief for Truex’s No. 56 Toyota. He replaces Pat Tryson, who was reassigned to another position at Michael Waltrip Racing. Tryson announced right before the start of the 2009 Chase for the Sprint Cup championship that he was leaving driver Kurt Busch and Penske Racing at the end of the year to move to MWR to crew chief Truex. But Tryson was never able to create the same success with Truex, who goes into Sunday’s race ranked 21st in the Sprint Cup standings with just three top-10 finishes this year. Truex was 22nd in points last year, with only one top-five. Frustrations got the best of Truex last month at Richmond, when he angrily fired

his crew over his team radio following a botched final pit stop at Richmond. That led to changes on his over-the-wall team the next week. Now Tryson is out, replaced by the 31-year-old Johnston. Johnston joined the team midway through last season, and Truex said he’s provided important help in setting up his Toyotas. “He’s shown a lot of leadership in his position and has shown me he really understands a race car,” Truex said in a statement. “He also understands all of the tools at his disposal here at Michael Waltrip Racing since he’s an engineer. His personality and mine mesh really well. We get along great, and he really understands what I am saying. “He is extremely good at pulling more information from me to get the answers to questions he has when setting up the car. The communication between he and I is impressive, and we just click. I’m looking forward to what all we can accomplish together as a team.” KAHNE SPONSER CHARLOTTE — Kasey

Jordan Kennerly started the game on the mound for South and Parker Hubbard fires to first base from second where he played an error-free game. Hubbard went 1 for 3 at the plate and went four innings. scored a run on the basepaths.

SOUTH FROM 1B two sharp innings, while veteran Dylan Walker earned a save with a 1-2-3 seventh. “Atwell came in there and put out the fire for two innings,” Lowman said. “Nothing but strikes.” Atwell has been the most pleasant surprise of the summer for Lowman and has been a godsend for a team that isn’t deep on the mound. A jayvee freshman at Carson, he’s appeared out of the pen in six of South’s nine games and has fanned 12 in 81⁄3 innings. He’s allowed one earned run. “I just try to throw strikes,” said Atwell, who complements a good fastball with a curve and changeup. Some of the guys in Legion are older, but I just try to be me. I don’t look at it it like anyone’s any different than I am.” Trailing 1-0 early, South

scored three times in the bottom of the first. Maverick Miles singled home scorching-hot Gunnar Hogan, a run scored when Jacob Dietz bounced into a double play, and Miles trotted home on a wild pitch. The young Bulldogs scored the next four runs for a 5-3 lead by bunching singles and taking advantage of South miscues. Fourth-inning doubles by Walker, a college southpaw who’s getting a chance to swing the bat some, and Dylan Goodman pulled South within a run, and Kyle Bridges tied the game at 5-all with a clutch, two-out hit. “I’ve been swinging the bat better,” said Bridges, who has four solid hits the last two nights. “I’ve just got to be patient because I’m seeing the ball so well right now I want to swing at everything.” The game turned South’s way for good when Atwell took the mound and started putting up zeroes.

South broke the 5-5 tie in the fifth with a pair of unearned runs. Dietz reached when his one-out grounder wide of third was booted, and Parker Hubbard blistered a single to left to put two men on. Walker grounded out to the right side to advance both runners a base. Hampton was up next. He rapped a slow chopper toward the second baseman, but he helped force an errant throw by hustling down the line. When the off-balance toss sailed past the first baseman, two runs scored. “Put it in play and good things can happen,” Lowman said. “Patrick ran hard on it. If he doesn’t, they probably make that play.”  NOTES: Leadoff man Hogan went 2-for-3 with a walk and has reached base by hits or walks eight times in his last nine plate appearances. ... South has a league game against Concord at Central Cabarrus High tonight, and

probably will send Weston Smith to the mound. ... South was 4-0 against Concord last season, winning 19-16 and 138 in the regular season and sweeping a playoff series with 9-1 and 10-2 romps. Smith was on the mound for seven innings in the 9-1 victory.

While the headline will forever record that Harper hit his first walkoff homer with the Suns — a two-run shot in the bottom of the 10th for a 9-8 win over Greenville — the details reveal that earlier in the game he was twice

erased from the bases by simple mistakes. He was picked off in the first inning, then got caught in a rundown in the fifth trying to advance on a ball in the dirt. Harper shrugged off both miscues, chalking them up to things that just happen in a game. “They got me when I was leaning,” he said of the pickoff, and he attributed the rundown to a good play made by the catcher. It’s part of a recurring theme — he’s been embarrassed more than once trying to snag an extra 90 feet this season. “He’s a very aggressive player, which is great,” said Hagerstown manager Brian Daubach, who played eight seasons in the majors, mixed in with parts of 14 years in the minors.

ROWAN FROM 1B “Our guys pitched really well tonight, we just lost a couple games of catch out there in the infield, but it was good to see Zach (Simpson) give us a good start tonight.” Simpson tossed five strong innings, allowing only three runs and walking zero, while whiffing four. “Zach could have gone much deeper in the game, as we didn’t take him out due to his performance, we just didn’t want to overwork him coming off of his arm injury suffered at Brevard,” Gantt said. Following Simpson on the hill, in relief, were Ethan Free, Caleb Henley and Johnson.

After Concord tied the game at five apiece in the sixth, Henley entered and hurled 1 and 1/3 innings of shutout ball to pick up the win. Leading the charge offensively for Rowan were Austin’s three hits, Mauldin’s two and a bomb from Justin Morris. Austin delivered two hardhit liners for a double and a single and then dropped a blooper down the left-field line that NASA couldn’t have guided to any better position. Morris broke a 3-3 tie in the fourth with a solo homer that rapidly cleared the right field wall. “We just got a lot of timely hits tonight, which it turned out we desperately needed,” said Austin. “I’m glad that I was able to shake off the bad night last night, and hit the ball well for us tonight, and just knew there

Whitehead gets â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;surrealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; phone call to replace Tiger Associated Press JACKSONVILLE, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Michael Whitehead was still getting over the sting of losing out on his shot to play in the U.S. Open when his phone rang Tuesday in Texas with news that took a little while to digest. Tiger Woods had withdrawn from the U.S. Open. Would he like to play? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of surreal,â&#x20AC;? Whitehead said â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just got a phone call from the USGA ask-


ing if I wanted to play in the U.S. Open because a spot had come open. I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Um, yes.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; She said Tiger had withdrawn from the Open â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that was the implication, at least. So, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thanks, Tiger.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I guess Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad he was listening to his doctors.â&#x20AC;? Woods decided not to play, saying his left knee and Achilles have not fully recovered and he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to risk further injury. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time Woods will not be at the U.S. Open since 1994.

without an owner and with the NHL running the team, the Phoenix Coyotes were hopeful of re-signing free agent goalie Ilya Bryzgalov. When it became clear they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be able to reach a deal, the Coyotes backed out and decided to let Philadelphia give it a go. Frustrated with what it felt was a high asking price, Phoenix sent Bryzgalovâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s negotiating rights to the Flyers NHL on Tuesday for a third-round GLENDALE, Ariz. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Even draft pick in 2012, forward

the first time since 1999. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask for anything more from either team,â&#x20AC;? said A&M coach Rob Childress, whose squad advances to a super regional for the first time in three years. Aggies starter Michael Wacha pitched five-hit ball for seven scoreless innings. Nick Fleece pitched the eighth for the win and Ross Stripling closed for a save.

Matt Clackson and future considerations. Negotiations with Bryzgalov broke down because the Russian goalie wanted to not only be a top-paid goalie in the NHL, but one of the top-paid players, according to an NHL official who requested anonymity because he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t authorized to release the information. The official also said the Coyotes do not intend to sign Clackson when his contract expires on June 30.

Brown became the first annual winner of the Frances Black Holland Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a student who has “exemplified a commitment to their education, to developing their artistic ability and to using those gifts to help others overcome obstacles and achieve their dreams.” Gibson will attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she will

The $2,000 scholarship was awarded through the Festival of Arts, which was established at Brown in 2004 and is part of the Cooperative Christian Ministry’s effort to combat homelessness. The CCM of Concord provides immediate assistance to those in crisis by providing food, shelter or finances for the present and resources to help them move forward. During her career, Holland taught at A.L. Brown from 1951 through 1954 and at several other schools. She loved teaching and loved her students more.

Outstanding students ‘Sports are my life’ BY SARAH CAMPBELL

CHINA GROVE — Physical limitations have never kept Tyler Rea out of the game. When the South Rowan High School senior wasn’t able to continue playing baseball because of his cerebral palsy, he didn’t leave the field completely. Instead, he moved to the dugout. “I kind of talked him into being a manger and learning how to do the books,” Doug Pruitt, Rea’s physical education teacher and baseball coach at Corriher-Lipe Middle, said. Helping Pruitt manage the school’s baseball team gave

Ailment inspires student to reach out BY SARAH CAMPBELL

SALISBURY — When Allyson Nunn was born, doctors told her parents she wouldn’t live past the age of 3. It’s safe to say they were wrong. This week, the 18-year-old Salisbury native will graduate from Salisbury High School as an honor student, despite battling nevus, a skin disease that attacks the internal organs. The disease is dormant at times, but is always visible on the skin as lesions. More than 70 percent of Nunn’s body was covered with the lesions at birth. Her mother, Cynthia Nunn, said her entire back was disguised by the dark marks, which meant surgery was necessary to remove the affected skin. Doctors removed almost all of the skin from her back and used a cell bank to grow a skin graft. Since that surgery, Nunn has had at least 30 more surgeries because the skin on her back doesn't grow back on its own. Each surgery can put her in the hospital anywhere from a week to four weeks. “The longest surgery she’s ever had was three and a half years ago, it was about 11 hours,” Cynthia Nunn said. “They discovered she had scoliosis, too, so they had to put rods in her back.” After that surgery, Nunn was homebound for the majority of her freshman year.

“When she was homebound we had to adjust her schedule to include more electives, so when she came back to school the following year she had to double up on academic classes,” Ruby Steele, Nunn’s guidance counselor, said. And Steele said Nunn didn’t just take the easy road, she tackled honors classes. “She strives to do everything more than,” she Allyson Nunn will head to North Carolina Central in the fall to said. pursue a career in nursing.

Positive attitude makes a difference

West Rowan’s Royale Nichols plans to study biology at Western Carolina university this fall. Nichols got a rough start at West Rowan, adjusting from life in the big city to the rural area.

He’s the first in family to attend college BY SARAH CAMPBELL

MOUNT ULLA — Moving from Queens, N.Y,. to Augusta, Ga., wasn’t a stretch for Royale Nichols since both are large cities. But the move from Augusta to Salisbury was a bit of culture shock. When he came to West Rowan High School as a junior, he admits it took a while to get adjusted. “I was used to the city life so coming to the country wasn’t that easy,” he said. But his guidance counselor, Arnethia J. Alexander, and teachers helped him get acclimated to his new surroundings. “They made me feel at home,” he said. “They told me that if I stay focused and do the right thing, everything else will fall into place.” Nichols took that advice and before long he was involved in peer tutoring, Tru Club, Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), treasurer of the Junior Civitans and a volunteer with the American Red Cross and Special Olympics. “He’s very well-rounded,” Alexander said. “As a young person he is very respectful and respectable ... he has the admiration of both his peers

and adults.” Nichols will graduate Saturday and move on to be the first person in his family to attend college. In the fall, he’ll attend Western Carolina University, where he’ll study biology with plans to pursue a career in emergency medicine. “I’m finally here,” he said. “Everything I’ve worked so hard for is finally here.” Although Nichols is excited about his future, he said it’s bittersweet without his mother, Phoebe Nichols, by his side. She died of sickle cell anemia when he was 2 years old. “There’s always an empty space in my heart for her,” he said. After his mother passed, Nichols moved in with his grandmother, Leslie Nichols. “I learned everything from my grandmother,” he said. “She stepped in and played a crucial role in my development from a boy to a young man. “She’s behind me 100 percent.” Alexander said Nichols has a bright future. “He’s going places,” she said. “I am very proud of him. “If I had a son, I would want him to be like Royale.” Contact reporter Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.


CHINA GROVE — When surgery left Savanah Hinson paralyzed four years ago she thought her life was over. “I didn’t do anything for two weeks, I just laid there crying,” she said about hearing the news. “I was angry at God, I didn’t understand.” But an epiphany pulled her out of her depression and into rehabilitation. “I thought, ‘I can’t live like this,’ ” she said. “Why wouldn’t I try to help myself? “I decided to be happy and grateful for what I have.” By the time Hinson began rehab she had shrunk to a weak 88 pounds.

SPENCER — When senior Josh Price moves to Atlanta this fall to attend Georgia Tech he won’t be forgetting his roots at North Rowan High School.

Children to straighten out his legs, Rea was up walking again. Now, he glides around South Rowan with ease, despite the braces on his legs. “He still plays harder than anybody,” Pruitt said. “I have always said that if half of our students had the heart he has, we would have no problem winning games.” Rea said working as a manager for the Raiders has given him a newfound love of sports. He’s more passionate about the strategy behind the game and takes pride in making sure each player’s needs are met. “I definitely feel like part of the team” he said. “I’ve been a really big part of these teams, that makes you feel good because you mean something.” Rea also coaches a youth basketball team at the J. Fred Corriher Jr. Y in China Grove. When he starts school at Catawba College this fall he plans to major in physical education in hopes of one day being a coach. He’s already talked to Chip Hester, Catawba’s head football coach, about helping out with Chiefs football. “My dream has always been to coach basketball or baseball because you definitely make a huge impact on so many people’s lives, from the fans to the players,” Rea said. Contact reporter Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.

NORTH FROM 13C marching band, student body president, National Honor Society president and treasurer of the Key Club, Price talks up North Rowan every chance he gets. He also helps out in the community by volunteering with Special Olympics, Rowan Helping Ministries and taking mission trips Grace United with Methodist Church. Price said he plans to use the experiences he’s had in high school to lend a hand down in Atlanta. “Having that experience is great,” he said. “Georgia Tech is very involved in Atlanta helping the inner city schools and inner city athletics.”

ATTITUDE FROM 13C though she is paralyzed from the abdomen down, she couldn’t even lift her head off the bed at first. When she returned to Carson High School to finish out her freshman year it took her nearly two hours to get ready every morning. Now, she gets around in her pink wheelchair with ease. She also drives a Volkswagen Beetle, controlling the gas and brakes with her hands. “People think that people in wheelchairs can’t do things, but I swim, I horseback ride, I go fishing,” she said. “I just do it a different way.” At Carson, Hinson has been the Relay for Life leader, a member of the prom committee and photo editor for the yearbook. She also works as an office assistant at the school. “Even on days when she does not feel her very best physically you cannot tell it,” Stacey Barnhardt, front

North Rowan senior counselor Bill Tenborg said Price is a very humble student who is always thinking of others. “When he got his scholarship from Georgia Tech he said, ‘I’m not going to apply for very many of the local scholarships,’ he said. ‘I look around the room and I’ve got a lot, a lot of these people don’t have anything,’ ” Tenborg said. “He looks beyond ‘just me.’ ” Price juggles his stewardship with Advanced Placement classes and maintaining a 4.75 weighted GPA. “He’s in a league of his own as far as self-motivation,” Sallie Hundley, Price’s AP calculus teacher, said. “I’ve never had a kid as self-motivated as he is to learn, and it’s not just because he wants to get an A, it’s because he wants to learn.”

jor in criminal justice. “I would like to be a court reporter,” she said. “A lady at the hospital told me about it and I never really thought about that being somebody’s job, but from then on I was interested because you get to hear everything that goes on.” In college, Perala is also hoping to learn a foreign language, one of the things she missed while on hiatus from East. “I’m hoping to do the things

in college — all the things I missed in high school,” she said. Good said he expects Perala’s work ethic to carry over to college. “She does the best at whatever she is doing,” he said. “I think that’s all the philosophy of living you need. “It’s great to see people who have overcome such limitations to do their best.” Contact reporter Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.

office secretary, said. “Her spirit is so bright.” Hinson said the only thing she misses out on are athletics, including cheerleading and volleyball. “Whenever we have pep rallies and I see my friends cheering, I kind of get upset and jealous because I think, ‘I could be down there,’ ” she said. “But I’m trying to find alternatives like hand cycling.” But Hinson’s optimism seems unwavering. “You don’t know what God has planned for you, but things happen for a reason and he’s got a plan so I’ve got to live with what I’ve got and be happy that I’m alive,” she said. Barnhardt said Hinson’s positive attitude is contagious. “If I ever wake up and think that I might be too tired to make it one morning I think about Savanah,” she said. “She is an inspiration.” Hinson said being paralyzed has opened her eyes to how compassionate people can be. “It’s really helped me a lot to see how people really care, people that don’t even know

me,” she said. Students from Carson High’s carpentry class have built Hinson a ramp so that she can make the trip across the stage Saturday to receive her diploma. In the fall, she’ll be heading to Campbell University to pursue a degree in either social work or child psychology. “I want to reach out to kids and let them know that being different is OK,” she said. Contact reporter Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.

Hundley said Price is always willing to help out his classmates. “But he doesn’t do it in a condescending way,” she said. “He’s very well-rounded, he understands what it’s like to be part of a team and how to interact with other students.” Price will be studying aerospace engineering at Georgia Tech. He plans to work on high-speed trains after graduating. Tenborg said he expects Price to be very successful in college. “I think that his quest for knowledge definitely shows that he is someone who wants that second step, that third step,” he said. “He’s not satisfied with being on the floor, he’s interested in going up.” Contact reporter Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.

INSPIRES FROM 13C her as someone who says, ‘Yes, I am different, but I am special.’ ” Nunn will attend North Carolina Central University in the fall, where she plans to major in nursing. Her goal is to become a pediatric or neonatal nurse. “I think I’m drawn to it because I’ve been around it all my life,” she said. “Nurses really help younger kids.” Nunn’s parents, Cynthia and Eugene, said her graduation Saturday is a reason for celebration. “I just want people to know that if you listen to man on a daily basis, you’re selling yourself short because God has the last say on everything,” Cynthia said. “I look at Allyson daily and realize that anything is possible in life if you keep your faith strong. “God is able to do anything, and Allyson is proof.” Contact reporter Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.

Prior to that, he worked for eight years as the president of

After graduate school, the Stanly County native worked as assistant to the executive vice president for Burlington Industries. He worked for the company for 10 years. From 1970-1971 Crisco served as a White House Fellow in Washington, D.C. as assistant to the U.S. Secretary for Commerce during the Nixon administration. Born and raised on a farm near Aquadale, Crisco has served on the Asheboro City Council, as chairman of the Pfeiffer University board of trustees, as chairman of the N.C. Center for Public Policy Research and as chairman of the National Elastic Manufacturer’s Association. He also served as chair-

man of Globio, a children’s educational website based in Portland, Ore., that uses wildlife photos to create a dialogue to connect children around the world. Crisco also served on Randolph Community College’s board for 16 years and as an active member of the UNC School of Public Health Advisory Council. He has been active with the N.C. Community Foundation, Action for Children North Carolina, and various land trust and environmental organizations. His personal interests include country music, genealogy and baseball. He and his wife, Jane, have three children and six grandchildren. They live in Asheboro and in Oriental in Pamlico County. This year will see 62 area graduates complete their high school careers as they prepare to go on to college.

Cinnamon bark may lower cholesterol Dear Dr. Gott: Back in 2006, you ran a column in which a gentleman said he had good results taking two 1,200-milligram capsules of cinnamon bark every morning. You said you were going to experiment on yourself and report back to your readers. Well, I never saw the follow-up article and was wondering how your experiment went. Can you share your results with me? I’m currently on 80 milligrams of Lipitor every DR. PETER day and GOTT would like to try to eliminate that, if possible. Thanks. Dear Reader: I’m sorry to say it didn’t work for me, but I must commend you on remembering a column from five years ago. Lipitor is in a class of drugs known as HMG CoA reductase inhibitors, or statins. It is designed to lower bad (LDL) cholesterol while increasing good (HDL) cholesterol. I don’t have access to your lab testing, nor do I know your medical history, so I don’t know what you are dealing with. Many people are adequately controlled by taking 10 or 20 milligrams daily along with following a low-fat diet and getting moderate exercise. That leads me to believe that you may have a cardiac condition that necessitates lower-thannormal levels or a genetic predisposition to higherthan-acceptable levels.

Speak with your prescribing physician to express your concerns. He or she may shun the concept of cinnamon bark even on a trial basis or might endorse a trial period. You also neglected to indicate whether you have modified your diet and incorporated a program of exercise into your daily activity. If you do have a family history, you may have a battle ahead of you; however, if you know your diet is less than optimal, simple changes might be the answer to eliminate having to take the drug. Readers who would like related information can order my Health Report “About Cholesterol” by sending a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order made payable to Dr. Peter Gott and mailed to P.O. Box 433, Lakeville, CT 06039-0433. Be sure to mention the title or print an order form off my website’s direct link at—form.pdf. Dear Dr. Gott: For years, I have had itching in my ear canal. At times, I wake myself up scratching my ears with my nails. This causes abrasions, pain and a buildup of residue. At times, there is a buildup of what appears to be dry skin. I have tried antibiotic and cortisone creams, olive oil and aloe vera, to no avail. Any suggestions? My doctor doesn’t have any. Dear Reader: Many things can cause itchy ears. You could have a skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis,

an infection, allergy, inadequate amounts of wax production, a fungal infection and more. Testing must be performed to hopefully find the exact cause. Perhaps you should speak with your primary-care physician to determine if a biopsy of the residue buildup or a course of oral antibiotics or antifungal would be appropriate. The testing might then determine whether you need to be seen by a dermatologist for your symptoms of dry, itchy skin or an otolaryngologist for the pain and buildup of residue. I wish I could be more specific, but based on your brief note, you are exhibiting a lot of confusing signs that have me puzzled. Readers who would like related information can order my Health Report “Ear Infections and Disorders” by sending a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order made payable to Dr. Peter Gott and mailed to P.O. Box 433, Lakeville, CT 06039-0433. Be sure to mention the title or print an order form off my website’s direct link at—form.pdf. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including “Live Longer, Live Better,” “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Diet” and “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook,” which are available at most bookstores or online.

Most go low when high is better BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

Doug Larson, a newspaper columnist, said, “What some people mistake for the high cost of living is really the cost of high living.” That is true, but the cost of living continues to go higher — and, of course, so does the cost of high living. In bridge, you might play low or high (or occasionally a middle card). In this deal, how can West defeat three no-trump after leading the club jack? North’s three-club rebid, often called New Minor Forcing, asked South if he had three-card spade support. South starts with eight top tricks: one spade, one heart, five diamonds and one club.

Bill Murray visits FDR’s NY home for role in film HYDE PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Academy Award-nominated actor Bill Murray has checked out Franklin D. Roosevelt’s old upstate New York digs as he prepares for a turn as the former president in a film set on the eve of World War II. The “Caddyshack” and “Ghostbusters” star spent several hours Sunday in Hyde Park, which is the setting for Richard Nelson’s screenplay, “Hyde Park on Hudson.” The film centers on the June 1939 visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth to FDR’s Hudson Valley home.

The first opportunity for a ninth winner fails immediately when East covers dummy’s club queen with his king. Declarer holds up his ace until

the third round, then leads his spade two. If West is a member of the second-hand-low club, he would play his five, and South would finesse. East would win the trick and shift to a heart, but declarer could win with his ace, run his diamonds, and take a second spade finesse to end with an overtrick. Let’s go back to trick four. West must play his spade king, not the five. What can South do? If he plays low from the board, West runs his clubs. And if declarer wins with dummy’s ace, East takes the next spade and switches to a heart. Either way, the contract fails. When you see a suit like those spades, play second hand high with the queen or king.

WEATHER UNDERGROUND’S NATIONAL WEATHER A heat wave will continue across the East on Wednesday as high pressure builds over the Southeast. Cities from New York to Washington DC will be hardest hit with temperatures soaring towards triple digits in the afternoon. In addition, high humidity will cause the heat index to rise to dangerous levels. For inland locations overnight temperatures will remain high, and will provide little relief from the heat. Along the coast, a sea breeze will kick in cooling things off in the afternoon and evening hours. Inland, lows will stay above 75 in many locations, which will be a major health hazard. In addition to the heat, poor air quality is anticipated throughout the region. In the Plains, poor air quality and high temperatures are also anticipated as the high drags smoke northward from fires in Southwest. Smoke will stretch northward to the Canadian border. The fires in the Southwest will be worst in Arizona and New Mexico where several fires will continue to burn out of control. In the West, clear skies will continue to spread throughout the region as high pressure builds over the Pacific. Warm temperatures will continue throughout the region, and any remaining precipitation in the Northwest will taper off.
