Board to consider budget

STAY AT HOME MISSION

Property tax rate unchanged, school funding tight BY KARISSA MINN

kminn@salisburypost.com

The Rowan County Board of Commissioners will consider adopting the county’s budget for fiscal year 2010-11 at Monday’s meeting. The Board meets at 7 p.m. in the commissioners meeting room on the second floor of the J. Newton Cohen Sr. Rowan County Administration Building, 130 W. Innes St. The proposed General Fund budget is around $128 million. This includes $2 million to pay the debt on a new satellite jail and emergency services communication equipment, paid for by a new quarter-cent sales tax increase. In the budget proposed by County Manager Gary Page and amended by county commissioners, the property tax rate would hold steady at 59.5 cents per $100 of valuation. That means the owner of a home with an assessed value of $100,000 would pay $595 in county property tax. That would be in addition to a city or town’s tax if the home is in a municipality. Page recommended holding per-pupil funding steady for the county’s schools, but an enrollment decline would have resulted in a net decrease for Rowan-Salisbury Schools. At a budget workshop earlier this week, commissioners agreed to add $190,000 to the school system’s allocation of just under $32.1 million, in order to keep funding level with the current year. However, Rowan-Salisbury School System finance director Tara Trexler told commissioners the system needs at least $690,000 to truly maintain county funding due to increases mandated by the state in health insurance and retirement plan contributions for county-funded positions. The school system originally requested a $3.3 million funding increase and offered to split that amount with the county using its own fund balance. Trexler said to cover the $3.1 million gap

Only 15 people had attended his first gathering of the church, and Shoaf was looking for direction, something that might serve as an underpinning for what he wanted the church to become. He noticed the sidewalk below him led directly across the road to Nazareth Children’s Home, and it immediately became obvious to the new MARK pastor.

For a second summer, the church has organized about 65 kids and 45 adults to work four days at the children’s home, making improvements and repairs throughout the campus. Church members call it their “Stay at Home Mission.” Shoaf applauds church mission trips to other communities, states or countries, but “I can’t seeing driving by this every day to go somewhere else.” “Our first mission is the children’s home,” he said.

Derrick Travel Center saves fuel by going electric BY SHELLEY SMITH

ssmith@salisburypost.com

A six-year truck stop electrification project is now permanently plugged into Rowan County. The truck stop electrification project, involving the Centralina Council of Government (CCOG) and the Rowan County Commissioners, is now in service at Derrick Travel Center, a truck stop on Peeler Road off of exit 71 on Interstate 85. The project is an effort to end truck idling by allowing truck drivers to turn off engines and provide truck cab connection to HVAC, block heater power, outlets for in-cab use, as well as Internet and cable access. The truck stop has 44 parking spaces, with 22 electrifica-

tion towers, and will reduce emissions and noise significantly, as well as fuel costs for the drivers. Each tower has two service modules, which hook onto the window of the truck. Window kits are available at Derrick Travel Center for purchase, and cost between $12 and $25. The center is currently offering the service free of charge, and charges for the services will be minimal once implemented. According to Neal Leonhardt, with CCOG, idling trucks use 0.8 to 1.2 gallons of diesel fuel per hour. Because the Department of Transportation requires truckers to rest for 10 hours for every 11 hours of driving, trucks are usually parked for extended periods of

A man charged with robbing and beating elderly women in southern Rowan in 2006 will spend at least the next 18 years in prison. Milton Howard Jones, 49, who has multiple aliases, pleaded guilty in Rowan County Superior Court on Thursday to two counts of larceny from a person, one count of common law robbery, three counts of felonious hit/run and being a habitual felon. Assistant District Attorney Karen Biernacki said all of the robbery victims were elderly women that he frightened or knocked down and took their purses. JONES One victim, an 81-year-old woman, suffered a broken hip and broken shoulder. Jones was charged with similar crimes in Cabarrus, Iredell, Randolph, Davidson, Forsyth and Guilford counties. Rowan was the only county to prosecute Jones as a habitual felon. Jones was arrested in Salisbury in December 2006 after leading law enforcement officers on a high speed chase from Lexington to Salisbury. He caused at least three collisions along the way before crashing into a fence at Klumac Road. Jones was sentenced to a minimum of 160 months to a maximum of 201 months. The sentence begins at the end of his current prison term, which expires in December 2015. According to the N.C. Department of Corrections website, Jones has used seven versions of names including the last names of Jobes and Melton as well as Jones. He is shown on the DOC website as Melton Jones. He was previously convicted in Iredell, Cabarrus and Guilford counties on similar common law robbery charges.

that will remain if the $190,000 allocation stands, the system may have to eliminate 117 positions and make other cuts. Any increase to RowanSalisbury schools would mean the county must also increase funding to Kannapolis City Schools and charter schools. The budget also includes a $150,000 increase to Rowan-Cabarrus Community College due to an increase in enrollment, as well as $450,000 to fix two roofs at the college. The proposed funding is a fraction of the nearly $3.9 million in requests from RCCC for capital projects school officials call urgent needs. Eighteen county jobs, most of which are currently vacant, would be eliminated under the proposed budget. The positions include a building inspector, four deputies, one environmental health specialist and nine part-time library positions. Commissioners decided not to eliminate the county’s only vehicle mechanic position. The county also would privatize its airport maintenance after a transition period this summer, eliminating two airport mechanic positions. Page said two private companies already are interested in providing maintenance at the airport, and they could hire at least one of Rowan County’s mechanics. The county received 28 requests for new positions, but only four would be granted — one in the health department to be funded by state grant money, two in child protective services and a new director of building inspections position. County employees will receive no cost-of-living adjustments or merit pay raises. They also would see an increase in their insurance plan deductible and employee family premiums.

benefits would not be reduced. The county’s estimated tax base for the next fiscal year has declined 0.4 percent. Also, the collection rate has fallen from 97 percent to 95 percent over the past three years. Sales tax collections have fallen more than 10 percent compared to three years ago. Building permits are estimated to generate $400,000, which is $600,000 less than collected in the 2007-08 budget. Interest on investments has fallen to 1 percent. In 2007 and 2008, interest income was about 5 percent of the investment portfolio. Because the county normally invests the money it receives in early taxes, Page recommended decreasing the early tax discount from 1.5 to 1 percent in July and from 1 percent to 0.5 percent in August. Commissioners rejected the change as a tax increase, reducing projected revenues by $240,000. Page told commissioners that in total, revenues dropped $3 million this year and he cut the budget $1 million. If revenues did not pick up and commissioners kept the additional $2 million in spending, he said, either taxes would have to be increased or significant cuts would have to be made in the 2011-12 fiscal year. Ten additional county positions would have to be cut. Employees would have to take furlough days or a salary cut, co-pays on their health insurance would rise and contributions to their retirement plans would fall. Funding to most nonprofit groups would have to be cut 50 percent. County library and park hours would have to be cut as well. In total, these cuts would add up to about $1.7 million in savings. The county is avoiding these measures in the 2010-11 fiscal year by dipping into its fund balance for about $1.5 million. Page warned against relying on the fund balance in the future, though, when the county will be borrowing money for its new jail annex and radio system. Also at Monday’s meet-

tems and diesel emissions, and proximities to certain areas of those emissions.” Leonhardt said Derrick Travel Center was chosen because the center had a willing owner, a large enough lot and a close proximity to a major interstate. “You’d be surprised how many truck stops in our area were not eligible,” he said. The $760,000 project is a combination of grants and donations. In 2004, CCOG and Rowan County received a $100,000 EPA Smartway grant to begin the project, and also received $400,000 in Congestion Mitigation for Air Quality (CMAQ) funding. CabAire, LLC, the vendor that installed the electrification service towers, contributed $260,000 for the project. Former Commissioner Leda Belk helped Rowan County secure the federal grants when the program became available in 2004. There are 133 truck stop electrification locations in the nation, with Rowan’s making the third in North Carolina. For more information on CabAire, LLC, visit www.controlmod.com/cabaire/.

time with the engines running. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that in one year, the total fuel-cost savings (per parking space) of idling versus not running the engine is more than $3,000. The facilities were revealed Friday morning, with many local officials and representatives with CCOG at Derrick Travel Center welcoming the project. “Air quality is one of the most vital issues we face in this region,” said Bob Misenheimer, Kannapolis Mayor and CCOG Board chairman. “This project is one of the best projects we could possibly do. “I am extremely glad to see the cities and counties making a difference.” County Commissioner Raymond Coltrain expressed his eagerness for the project, noting that everyone’s decisions today will greatly affect future generations. “This is about the air that we breathe and most impor-

Commissioner Jon Barber noted the proximity of the truck stop to Southeast Middle School. “If this station here is going to improve air quality near the schools, and improve air quality for those students, that’s a great benefit,” he said. “I think this is outstanding.” Founding Director of the Catawba Center for Environment Dr. John Wear said in order to solve the air quality issues in our region, more projects such as the truck stop electrification need to be considered. “Cumulatively, how we do things like this, allowing people to cut their engines off at night and have all these amenities, to ways we create businesses and homes more efficiently, it is all cumulatively helping reduce our fossil fuel use and moving us to cleaner air and less carbon emissions, he said. “Any time you reduce the diesel and automobile emissions near the schools, that’s very important. “More and more we’re seeing studies done telling us we need to be making considerations in terms of school sys-

tantly the air we leave behind for our kids and grandkids,” he said. Al Sharp, executive director of CCOG, reflected on a trip he and others made last winter to the truck stop one night, “to listen to all the trucks idling,” he said. He noted the sights, smells and sounds, and looked forward to a better future with less emissions and better air quality. “What you see now is the wave of the future,” he said. “What’s significant is that what we do this morning is going to have impacts on us this afternoon.” Sharp called truck stop electrification a “win-win.” “It gives them (drivers) a better environment in which to provide their mandatory rest,” he said. “It gives income for the stops. And it improves air quality in our region.” Gary Cotnoir, with CabAire, demonstrated the product, which he says will be a blessing for truck drivers. “When I did the installation, trucks just ran and ran and ran,” he said. “I can’t imagine the noise trying to sleep.”

Nearly 300 young women from across the state gathered at Catawba College this week for the 71st Tar Heel Girls State convention. North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall met with the group before speaking in Keppel Auditorium

71st Tar Heel Girls State Young women from across the state gather to learn about government BY SUSAN SHINN

Catawba College News Service

Imagine a weeklong discussion of government including parliamentary procedure. Pretty dull, huh? Now throw in 290 screaming young women, all cheering enthusiastically for their own “cities.” Welcome to the 71st Tar Heel Girls State convention at Catawba College. Sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary, Girls State introduces rising high school seniors to all aspects BRADWAY of government, from the duties of a city manager to introducing a bill. It’s an intense experience, say the local young ladies who attended the session this week. “It’s really hardcore,” Courtney Bradway of Rockwell said Thursday. “The first two days were really hard. It’s gotten a lot better. It was overwhelming.” The 15 local girls attending all agree it’s a good experience for their college resumés. Margaret Kaufman of Salisbury is interested in political science and campaigns — the whole election process. The convention is heavy on parliamentary procedure, the girls say. “We speak it every day,” said Carol Brown of Rockwell. “It’s very in-depth. They don’t let anything MURPHY slide.” Anita Overstreet of Salisbury said she liked the fact that “anybody can get up in front of a group and speak, whether they have experience or not.” Marlee Murphy of Salisbury said that the self-nomination process helped increase self-esteem. “You have to have the self-confidence to nominate yourself,” Brown said. “Everybody has the exact same qualifications,” Overstreet added. It’s a challenge to find something unique, to set yourself apart from other candidates, said Raven Corbett of Rockwell.

Anita Overstreet and Rena Ogle, both of Salisbury, are all smiles during the 71st Tar Heel Girls State at Catawba College. Nearly 300 young women from across the state participated. Some girls have been legislative pages; others have had family members who participated in Girls State and knew what to expect. The girls marveled at one participant who had thousands of hours of community service. “I don’t know when she sleeps,” said Jenna Bryan of Salisbury. On Thursday, precinct and city elections had been completed, with state elections yet to come. Also on that day, 10 girls were choPERRY sen as nominees for Girls Nation, to be held in Washington, D.C. in July. Two finalists will be announced Saturday morning at the close of the event. Kierra Perry of Salisbury came to Girls State because of future career aspirations. She either wants to study social work or crime scene investigation. “Any job I want has to do with government,” she said.

The week was not without its lighter moments. Although curfew was midnight, the girls stayed up much, much later. “I had a dance party on my birthday,” said Brandi Jones of Lexington, who turned 17 on Tuesday. “We’ve still got a bunch of cake.” Secretary of State Elaine Marshall could relate. The girls clustered around Marshall before she spoke in Keppel Auditorium. A couple of years ago, she said, she stayed up all night, watching a bill make its way through the legislature, afraid it would be killed. “I didn’t think I had it in me,” she told the group, “but I did.” Other local girls attending Girls State this week included: Krystal Gilmore, Spencer; April Honeycutt, Mount Ulla; Amanda Matlock, Woodleaf; Abby Kepley, Granite Quarry; Rena Ogle, Salisbury; and Katelyn Shuping, Salisbury. Freelance writer Susan Shinn is a full-time student at Catawba College.

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s unemployment rate improved in May for the third straight month, this time to 10.3 percent, but the boost came mostly from a gain in government hiring, the state Employment Security Commission said Friday. The unemployment rate fell from 10.8 percent in April. The national unemployment rate also had fallen, from 9.9 percent in April to 9.7 percent in May. North Carolina’s unemployment rate had been as bad as 11.2 percent in February, the worst since the current calculation method started in 1976. The number of people working increased by 14,722 and the number on the unemployment rolls decreased by almost 20,800 workers. Though the jobless rate has been falling, government was responsible for much of the improvement, adding 16,100 workers, while manufacturing lost 2,900 jobs and leisure and hospitality services shed 2,700 positions. John Connaughton, an economic forecaster at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, said the fact that government hiring was responsible for the state’s improved unemployment rate means the figure could readily rise again in a few months. The lower unemployment rate was “a result of the census workers being hired and they’ll be gone in three months,” Connaughton said. “The rest of the private-sector economy is negative and that’s very worrisome.” Since the recession began in December 2007, North Carolina has lost 251,900 nonfarm jobs, with manufacturing losing 103,400 of them. The state data showed manufacturers are pushing their employees to work longer hours. That increases the pressure for factories to speed hiring. But Connaughton said companies have learned to do more with fewer workers, so he doesn’t expect a broad increase in hiring soon. “They’re not going to go through the painful process of adding workers with the prospect of laying them off in six months or a year,” he said. “They’re still not convinced that we’ve made a big turnaround yet.”

2 charged in connection with vandalism spree Two 20-year-olds have been charged with 13 counts of injury to personal property after authorities say they took a baseball bat to mailboxes and seven cars in a nighttime spree that ended with a traffic stop. The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Corey Levi Duran, 110 Lauren Glenn Drive, China Grove, and William DURAN Nathaniel York, 237 Strawberry Lane. They remain in the Rowan County Detention Center under $7,500 bond each. York is also charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Capt. John Sifford said the first call came around 3 a.m. Wednesday when a resident of Maple Ridge Road reported his mailbox had been smashed. He described the vehicle as a dark colored SUV. As the deputy was taking the report, a neighbor stopped by to report his mailbox YORK had been smashed by someone in a darkcolored SUV. And he followed the vehicle until he lost it. Another caller advised their mailbox had been smashed in the Grace Church Road area. Deputy Mike Dixon spotted an SUV matching the description at the intersection of Shue and Grace Church roads. Dixon pulled over the vehicle driven by York with Duran as a passenger. Sifford said Dixon found a baseball bat in the vehicle, along with marijuana. And then the flood of 911 calls started with reports of more damaged mailboxes and cars with windshields and windows broken out.

Topless dancers face exposure charges CHARLOTTE (AP) — Authorities have arrested six women and are searching for 10 others as part of an investigation of indecent exposure at strip clubs that one club owner said was a waste of law enforcement resources. The Charlotte Observer reported Friday that Alcohol Beverage Control officials said the topless dancers are charged with violating a state law that prohibits them from performing nude. The arrests are part of a six-month undercover investigation into eight adult-entertainment clubs in Charlotte. Most of the clubs involved are operated by M.A.L. entertainment, a company owned by Charlotte businessman David “Slim” Baucom.

“They know that they’re not allowed to expose themselves and they did,” said Michael Crowley of Mecklenburg’s ABC commission. “You’re not allowed to remove your bottom.” Crowley said the women removed all of their clothes during table dances on the main floor and in semi-private areas, roped off for customers who pay extra for special dances. Agents said Baucom cooperated with authorities and provided the real names of some of his dancers. Chris Fall, owner of the Paper Doll Lounge, said the investigation is a waste of taxpayer money, particularly in tight financial times. Authorities said an ABC agent and a

Pineville police officer conducted the investigation. “The government, they’re bad on money and they’re coming after us,” Fall said. “Paying (agents) to go to strip clubs ... and have a good time.” The clubs could face disciplinary action by the state ABC commission, which controls licensing for businesses that sell alcohol. Crowley compared the operation to other ABC stings, in which the commission sends minors into gas stations and grocery stores to try and buy alcohol and cigarettes. “We want to make sure that these adult entertainment establishments are following the law,” Crowley said. “That’s our job.”

CRIME ROUNDUP Woman wanted for driving off with lawn mower When three women showed up at a farm equipment company wanting to buy a Father’s Day present, they didn’t need any help from salesmen. Christine Gantt knew exactly what GANTT she wanted — a Husqvarna lawnmower with a 54-inch deck. And she also wanted a utility trailer for dad to haul the mower. On June 9, Gantt, accompanied by two other women, pulled off from Faith Farm Equipment, 585 W. Ritchie Road, with the mower on the trailer hooked to a blue Jeep Cherokee. She wrote a check for $4,281.42 to pay for dad’s present. The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office became involved on June 16 when the check failed to clear. Capt. John Sifford of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said warrants have been issued for Gantt, who previously lived with her grandfather at 4344 Camden Ave., Kannapolis. She is charged with two counts of obtaining property by false pretense. She has been entered in the national crime crime database as wanted. Sifford said it appears she may be in Spartanburg, S.C. The Jeep Cherokee had a Spartanburg dealership logo and displayed a 30-day tag. Sifford said Cabarrus Sheriff’s Office deputies and Rowan Deputy D.A. Whitley interviewed Gantt’s grandfather. He made clear he didn’t approve of what she was doing, but said she stopped by his house on June 9 in the Jeep Cherokee, pulling a trailer with a lawnmower. He told deputies that when

he asked what was going on, his granddaughter said, “We got to go.” He also told deputies that Bank of America had sent a notice to his house concerning her accounts. Sifford said the bank indicated Gantt had opened several checking accounts, deposited money, withdrew the money and closed the accounts after a short period. Sifford said officers haven’t determined where Gantt’s father lives, but he doesn’t expect he’ll be getting a new mower for Father’s Day. And deputies haven’t been able to identify the two other women involved in the incident. The 20-year-old Gantt is a registered sex offender for a prior conviction of taking indecent liberties with a minor.

Traffic stop nets marijuana A traffic stop Thursday night on Interstate 85 netted more than 88 grams of marijuana. Salisbury Police Officer M.A. Hunter stopped a 2000 Mercedes on I-85 at the city limits for speeding. Chief Rory Collins said Hunter asked SEAN for and received permission to search the vehicle. He found 12 bags of marijuana inside the console. The 88.3 grams of marijuana had a street value of $880. Christopher Shaune Sean, 27, 1215 Heather Mist Ave., Charlotte, was charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia — a set of weighing scales. Sean was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center with bond set at $3,500.

Man charged with killing his mother CHARLOTTE (AP) — A North Carolina man has been arrested and charged with shooting and killing his mother during an argument. Multiple media outlets reported 63-year-old Ada Adams of Charlotte was shot late Thursday morning. Adams was taken to Carolinas Medical Center, where she died. Police have charged her son, 32-year-old John Lee Adams, Jr., with murder. Investigators say the shooting came during an ongoing custody dispute over John Adams’ son. Police say the youngster called police to say his father had shot the boy’s grandmother. Officers say they found a gun at the scene. It was unclear if John Adams had an attorney.

Businessman says he also donated through kids RALEIGH (AP) — A North Carolina businessman says no one ever instructed him to get around state campaign finance laws by funneling money to his workers to make political contributions. Atlantic Corp. owner Rusty Carter made the statement in an affidavit released Friday by the State Board of Elections. He was fined and got probation in state court last month for accepting responsibility for $176,000 in illegal donations to the campaigns of Gov. Beverly Perdue and two state senators. Carter’s affidavit said his company also gave $267,000 to federal and state candidates by paying or reimbursing employees who made the donations. He also said his children donated $73,000 using money he gave them. State law bans corporate campaign contributions and using someone else’s money for a donation.

Dam fails, drains centerpiece lake in Hope Mills HOPE MILLS (AP) — Officials are trying to determine why a dam failed in a North Carolina town, draining its centerpiece lake. The Fayetteville Observer reported Hope Mills Lake drained Thursday after officials began investigating why it had turbid water, which was cloudy and may have soil in it. The town had gotten permission last year to put water in the lake again after an 80-year-old earthen dam had collapsed in 2003. The town built a new dam and spillway before collecting water in the lake again. Inspectors had released water Wednesday to investigate the turbid water. The water picked up speed and the lake disappeared. Two holes were visible on the lake side of the dam. State and local officials and private engineers spent much of Thursday inspecting the dam and planned to review the information Friday.

Longtime legislator Bertha ‘B’ Holt dies BURLINGTON (AP) — A longtime legislator known for her work to get North Carolina to repeal a law that said husbands could not rape their wives has died at the age of 93. Bertha “B” Holt died Friday morning at her home. Jefferson Holt of Chapel Hill says his mother had suffered a stroke Sunday. The Burlington lawmaker was in the state House of Representatives from 1975 to 1994. She led the effort to change the state’s marital rape law, which had said that husbands couldn’t be charged with raping their wives. The law was amended in the 198788 session and was taken off the books in 1993. Other survivors include a daughter, Harriet Whitley of Burlington, and another son, Merrill, of San Francisco. Her husband, Clary Holt, died in 2003. Rich & Thompson Funeral & Cremation Services is handling the arrangements.

SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 2010 • 5A

Ask Amy: Pooped-out neighbors not in mood to party Dear Amy: There is a home in our neighborhood that sat empty for several years due to a foreclosure. New buyers purchased the property and began extensive renovations. Last month, postcards were sent to many of us in the neighborhood. The postcard is a photo of the home’s exterior with a caption that reads, “We ASK know you’re curiAMY ous.” The text on the back states that food and beverages will be served at the home, and stresses that everyone should “come see what we’ve done with the house.” Word through the grapevine is that only a handful of people even bothered to RSVP. I suspect these newcomers are simply clueless, so for other readers who may have been fortunate enough to invest in a fixer-upper, here are some things to keep in mind:

Your house dragged down the value of ours over those long months. It’s nice that you can afford all new things for your home. We’d like to do some of those renovations ourselves, but we either have no equity or had our equity line of credit reduced. Some of us were recently laid off and are struggling just to make mortgage payments. Please excuse us for not wanting to come over to be escorted around the newly manicured grounds. We don’t begrudge what you have. We’re just not eager to have our collective noses rubbed in it. — Suburban Party Pooper Dear Pooper: Well, that’s one way to look at it. Another way is to realize that the people who bought the house weren’t the ones who dragged down the value along the street — they’re not the problem but a possible solution. They are also possibly clueless and grasping strivers who will soon be educated on the depths of

suburban Schadenfreude and envy. Despite what you say, it’s obvious that you do begrudge your neighbors. I agree that their effort is clunky and somewhat insensitive, but your response is unkind. Dear Amy: My wife and I recently returned from a 1,700-mile driving vacation. We traveled dirt roads, back roads, paved roads and freeways. One constant through the trip was that female drivers follow too closely! More than 20 times I pulled off the road to let a female driver pass me because I was afraid of a rear-end accident. Not one time was it a man driving. I am convinced that women do not understand the physics, the dynamics or the technologies related to automobile operations and all the things that can go wrong to a vehicle while driving. Deer, an accident ahead, a sudden stop or a look away — and there is no time left to react. My wife drove for 50 miles, and

I was afraid for my life. I constantly asked her to slow down or give the car ahead more room. After 50 years of marriage, this is the only thing we argue about. Why won’t she change? She is quite intelligent in most other matters. I know this sounds chauvinistic (I also have three daughters), but I don’t mean to be. I need your help. — Worried Dear Worried: There is no question that following too closely to the vehicle in front of you doesn’t leave a driver enough time to react, but in terms of your genderbased observations, national highway accident statistics show that male drivers are more than twice as likely to die in an auto crash than female drivers. Women are catching up, however — their fatality rate is rising, while that of men is falling. You and your wife could both benefit from taking a safe driving course. You can check AARP.org for details.

get in your response to “Jessica,” who wanted to restrict her children’s official grandparents only to the four biological ones. I am a stepmother of three. My eldest recently married and thereupon became a stepmother herself to a 5-year-old. This little girl has a total of eight loving, doting grandparents! What could possibly be wrong with that? Of course, we may be unusual. After all, when my husband and I were married, the priest who officiated was his ex-wife (we’re Episcopalian). Rock on, Amy! — “Stepping” Happily Dear Stepping: You obviously are rocking on.

Crowds jam Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter opening ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Thousands of people waited in line for hours Friday to get into The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando on its opening day, as Daniel Radcliffe and other stars from the movie greeted fans at the minipark. Aerial photos showed thousands of people in a snaking line waiting to enter. On Twitter and other forums, observers joked that the park had become “Harry Potter and the Endless Line.” Universal Orlando spokesman Tom Schroder said the park does not divulge attendance figures, but he said 5,000 people were waiting to get in before the park even opened Friday morning. Schroder said that despite the large numbers of fans, “it looks as if we will be able to accommodate everyone who

wants to experience The Wizarding World of Harry Potter within our regular hours.” The park normally closes at 10 p.m. The park was admitting guests to the 20-acre Wizarding World area in waves, so it did not appear overcrowded from the inside. But the line to enter the Wizarding World snaked all the way through Universal’s Islands of Adventure park, where the Harry Potter area is located. “It’s absolutely jampacked,” said Robert Niles, editor of ThemeParkInsider.com, in a phone interview, adding, “The number of people here for this is clearly in the tens of thousands. These are passionate fans.” The Wizarding World brings the popular Harry Potter books and movies to life with rides, shops and detailed reproductions of the

fictitious village of Hogsmeade, the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the steambelching Hogwarts Express train. Radcliffe, who plays the boy wizard in the movie series, was joined at the opening by Warwick Davis (who plays Filius Flitwick), Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Michael Gambon (Albus Dumbledore). “What Universal Orlando has done with Harry Potter is really, really fantastic,” Radcliffe said at the opening ceremony. “We’re all kind of very grateful that the next ASSOCIATED PRESS part of the Harry Potter Harry Potter fans cheer and take pictures during the official grand opening at the Wizarding legacy has been so well-done World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando on Friday in Orlando, Fla. and so well-made.”

DARTS AND LAURELS

A class act from 1932 Laurels to the J.C. Price High School building, which is Salisbury’s newest addition to the National Register of Historic Places. The stately old school’s designation for national recognition will be a highlight of this weekend’s gathering here of Price’s national alumni association. The designation recognizes the significance of the building, which was built in 1932 at 1300 W. Bank St. as the first (and only) public school building in Salisbury erected solely for use as a high school by black students. It also affirms Price High’s place in the social and cultural history of Salisbury. Congratulations to the Price alumni, local preservationists and others who have devoted years of work to documenting Price’s rich history and advocating its inclusion on the National Register. For those interested in further exploration of the school’s history, check out the exhibit of Price High School photographs, “Cherishing the Black and Red,” currently on display at the main library on West Fisher Street. • • • Dart to the setback for redevelopment of another Salisbury landmark — the old Empire Hotel on South Main Street. Given the economic climate, it’s not surprising that Empire Properties decided it wasn’t the right time to move ahead with the project, which would have transformed the 1855 structure into a multiuse complex that would include a restaurant and retail space, as well as a hotel. The recession has delayed or derailed projects around the country. While Empire’s pullout is disappointing, however, it isn’t the end of the story. The Raleigh-based development firm left the door open to reconsider its involvement when things improve, and Downtown Salisbury Inc., which purchased the building in 2007, is talking with other developers. • • • Laurels to completion of the truck-stop electrification project at Derrick Travel Plaza. Truck-stop electrification enables long-haul drivers to connect their auxiliary systems into the power grid, rather than having to leave their engines idling for long periods. How significant is the pollution from idling trucks? Trucks in the United States burn about 11 billion gallons of diesel fuel annually while idling, translating into about 11 million tons of carbon dioxide, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. The Centralina Council of Governments was the key agency in obtaining approximately $500,000 in federal funding to launch the project in 2004. Now, the county officials appear ready to pull the plug on CCOG.

Moderately confused

A table full of memories T

he new table is not so new anymore. But it will always be newer than the old table, which is, like me, pretty old. And getting older every day. I remember when the old table was new. My first husband and I bought it soon after we were married. We ordered it from North Carolina, my home state, and had it shipped to California, where he was a native, and I was a homesick transplant. I loved it at first sight. Not just because we both hailed from the same mountains, though I will say, that helped. It was a trestle table, long and thin — much like I was in those days. Made of soft knotty pine, SHARON it was stained a rich, dark walRANDALL nut, with a semi-glossy finish. It could comfortably seat eight average-size adults for a party. Or two adults, two booster seats and a highchair for tuna casserole. Or five basketball players and their coach for a spaghetti dinner, with folding tables for other players who weren’t as quick to grab a seat. My three children left their mark on that table. Literally. You can still see the imprints of words and numbers they wrote while doing homework, all the scratches and nicks and dents and dings from years of playing board games or building science projects or blowing out birthday candles or chasing runaway peas around their plates. If you don’t think peas can scratch a table, try putting them in the hands of a 3-year-old who is learning to use a fork. It served us well, that table. My husband was forever adding another layer of varnish. He added the last not long before he died. The kids were nearly grown. It might never need another coat, he said. If it did, he’d strip it and start fresh. That was another lifetime, years ago. And the finish is still holding strong. When I remarried and moved with my new husband to Las Vegas, the old table moved with us and looked right at home in our new

dining room. For the kitchen, we bought a new table, a farmhouse butcher block, sturdy and thick — much like I am these days. It’s made of solid oak, a light, natural color with a soft handrubbed finish. Gradually, it has become the center of our home — the place where we cook and eat most of our meals, where we open mail and pay bills and address birthday cards to family and friends we left in California. When our children (his two, my three and their others) come to visit, we gather around the new table to eat and drink and talk and laugh and make new memories for years to come. But we try to have dinner in the dining room at least once while they are here, so the old table won’t feel left out. Life is such a mixture of old and new, such a blending of the present and the past. This morning, I coated both tables with lemon oil and let it soak in a bit. Then I used rags to work the oil into the wood. I started with the old table, covering its dents and dings, taking care not to miss an inch. When I saw my face reflected on its surface, I smiled. I, too, have my share of dents and dings. Then I wiped down the new table and noticed it has a few scratches, a few signs of wear. As well it should. Tables are meant to be used just as lives are meant to be lived. A few dents and dings, a few lines and wrinkles just add character. Pine and oak are different by nature. One is like youth, soft and impressionable. The other is like age, resilient and strong. But a funny thing happens when I close my eyes and trail my fingers along the surface of the tables. I can’t tell where one stops and the other begins. They blend seamlessly into one life. • • • Sharon Randall writes this column for Scripps Howard News Service.

TO THE

It’s absurd to suggest Hall isn’t dedicated to education Over the past week, several members of the school system have horribly misrepresented the questions asked by my mother, Commissioner Tina Hall, at last Monday’s commission meeting. There have also been letters to the editor alleging that my mother was out of line, and that she is trying to make an “attack” against school children. I would like to address both of these claims. Tina Hall has been scrutinized for asking questions about how the school system spends its money. Not only is it her right as a commissioner, it is her duty to ensure that tax dollars go straight to the classroom to help our teachers and students. School Board member Karen Carpenter became offended when my mother implied funds had been misused by the school system. I share my mother’s belief that during these economic times, every possible dollar allocated to the schools should be spent on textbooks, supplies, and teachers … not bottomless travel expenses for the School Board and central office leadership. Her opinions may make her less popular among a certain crowd, but I’m proud of her for standing up for the students by asking the hard questions. For anyone to claim that Tina Hall would EVER want to take one cent away from school children is ridiculous. Her entire career as an educator was dedicated to helping children. She fought for students at my high school to get higher education through AP classes and continues to push the school system for stronger test scores and better graduation rates. She does it because she wants each and every student in Rowan County to reach their highest potential. I strongly urge all parents, teachers and citizens to go out and vote Tina Hall for county commissioner on Tuesday. — Kathryn Hall Mt. Ulla

Actions a turnoff for voters I have been following the antics of Tina Hall in the Post since she was elected to the Board of County Commissioners. Time and again, it seems she continues to bring a hostile, adversarial attitude to board meetings. I’ve come to the conclusion that her seemingly innocent questions are nothing more than not so subtle attempts to antagonize, attack and provoke. (Yes, she has the right to question expenses, but to dredge up one incurred two

years ago by the fiancee of her political opponent? Please.) Does she not understand what an absolute turnoff this is to voters? Maybe Commissioner Hall should move to South Carolina. Her apparent nasty streak is better suited to the brand of politics practiced there. I for one will vote for Chad Mitchell in the runoff and plan to support Jon Barber in the general election. — D.C. Sink Rockwell

Support Chad Mitchell All Republican and unaffiliated citizens of Rowan County who voted in the May primary, please vote by June 22 for Chad Mitchell. Chad Mitchell has eight years of experience dealing with county government issues, including budgets, school expansion, job recruitment and business interests while keeping our taxes low and manageable. He opposed Salisbury’s annexation of the N.C. 150 corridor. This is a candidate who chooses his battles wisely and accomplishes the goals of county government without ever attacking county citizens, employees or business interests. Tina Hall dislikes everything in Rowan County. She continues to conduct business in the same manner she did as principal at Landis Elementary (i.e., she belittles individuals, disregards business interests and forces her agenda on everyone. She couldn’t care less about the education of your children, grandchildren and the great-grandchildren of this county. She is a RINO (Republican in Name Only). Chad Mitchell is a lifelong conservative Republican and soundly defeated Tina Hall in the May 5 primary. This county and the Republican Party need Chad Mitchell on the November ballot! Move this county forward; vote Chad Mitchell in the June 22 runoff. — Chris Cohen

aleigh — It is often said that children promise us the hope of tomorrow. But to deliver on that promise, children need the support of a community of caring and engaged adults- including their dads. There are all sorts of fathers — biological, non-custodial, foster and adoptive, stepfathers, grandfathers and godfathers. What they share in common is a unique opportunity and important responsibility to help the children in their ALLEN lives grow into healthy and productive adults. This Father’s Day, let us celebrate and validate the important role of fathers in promoting the well-being of our children and our society at large. Fathers make a brighter future possible by their daily involvement and commitment in children’s lives. Involved dads contribute volumes to the well being of their children. Studies show that active fathers lower the chance for school failure, early sexual activity, juvenile delinquency and adult criminality among youth. Even so, the value of the male parent presence is frequently hidden by one-dimensional labels like breadwinner, disciplinarian and joint custodian. But dads are much more than this. They help children learn important life skills. They provide children with emotional support, guidance and discipline. They are teachers and role models, and research indicates that while men and women often differ in their parenting styles, exposure to both is healthy for children. Dads will not be successful, however, without community and public support. We do a good job at recognizing motherhood as vital to the institution of parenthood, but far too often we leave fathers outside of this critical equation. Dads as well as moms need to be able to take advantage of personal support networks that encourage and enable their responsibilities as nurturing parents. If we do not make fatherhood a first concern, then 1 in 4 children will continue to live without dad’s crucial contribution to their development and well- being. This Father’s Day, make a commitment to elevate fatherhood to a position of honor and priority in your local neighborhood. Praise a dad for his efforts at the hardest job one could ever do. Recognize the good things dad is doing — and then help him to do the things he wants to do better. Create a group in your church or community that welcomes and sustains fathers.

Many studies confirm that higher levels of father involvement in these types of activities are associated with fewer behavioral problems, higher levels of sociability, and a high level of school performance among children and adolescents.

Embattled BP CEO Hayward removed from oil spill oversight; Stats show slow pace of claims process Bill to spare doctors from Medicare cuts doesn’t pass in time WASHINGTON (AP) — After a week of partisan wrangling, the Senate on Friday passed legislation to spare doctors a 21 percent cut in Medicare payments looming for months. But the lastditch effort came too late. Moments after the Senate acted, Medicare announced it would begin processing claims it has already received for June at the lower rate. The reason: the House cannot act on the fix until next week. That means doctors, nurse practitioners, physical therapists and other providers who bill under Medicare’s physician fee schedule will have to resubmit their claims if they want to be made whole, with added paperwork costs both for the providers and for taxpayers. “Congress is playing Russian roulette with seniors’ health care,� Dr. Cecil B.

VLKSM, Kyrgyzstan (AP) — Ethnic Uzbeks sheltering in squalid tent camps say they don’t have enough food or clean water but are terrified of going back to live alongside those they hold responsible for days of shootings, arson and sexual assaults. That air of suspicion was rife Friday among the hundreds of refugees crowded into gray canvas tents on a patch of arid scrub in this Kyrgyz village near the border with Uzbekistan. “Where can we go now?

little more than a week. The William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark., is set Friday to release approximately 80,000 pages of e-mails — about 11,000 of them written by Kagan. It’s the final installment of documents related to her service as a domestic policy aide and White House counsel to former President Bill Clinton. It’s the third week in a row the files will be made public on a Friday afternoon — the customary time in official Washington for dribbling out unfavorable information or disclosures one hopes won’t draw too much attention. Another roughly 80,000 pages of paper files already have been released, revealing Kagan’s role in managing the scandals of the Clinton administration, her pragmatic streak dealing with complex issues such as tobacco regulation and her political instincts weighing in on issues such as abortion, gun control and drug sentencing. Sen. Mitch McConnell, RKy., the minority leader, said Friday the papers that have emerged so far make it hard to believe that Kagan could be an impartial justice.

Entire Uzbek neighborhoods of southern Kyrgyzstan have been reduced to scorched ruins by rampaging mobs of ethnic Kyrgyz who forced nearly half of the region’s roughly 800,000 Uzbeks to flee for their lives. The U.N. says as many as 1 million people will need aid, and Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issued an appeal Friday for $71 million. “There are shortages of food, water and electricity in the affected areas, due to looting, lack of supply, and restrictions on movement,� he said. “Hospitals and other institutions are running low on medical supplies.�

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Will the Gulf oil leak cam engulf President Barack Obama? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly impossible to avoid the live video of the coal-gray oil gushing from BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well a mile below the Gulf of Mexicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface. According to an Associated Press-GfK Poll this week, 88 percent of the public has viewed it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a picture so sharp that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tantalizingly easy to wonder why someone doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just stuff a rag into the ruptured pipe. The video is a daily reminder that two months after the oil rig explosion that killed 11 and caused the massive leak and resulting environmental and economic damage, BP still hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plugged the well. The APGfK Poll shows that so far people are more upset with BP than Obama: 83 percent disapprove of how the British-based oil company is handling the disaster, compared with 52 percent unhappy with the president. It was the White House and Democratic lawmakers who originally pressed BP to make the videos available. Yet if the crude continues to flow, the images could morph into a vivid symbol of the intractable problems Obama has yet to solve to the satisfaction of a demanding public â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not just the Gulfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental disaster, but the limp economy and feeble job market, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly what they want is for us to focus on what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done right,â&#x20AC;? Paul Freedman, who teaches about public opinion, media and politics at the University of Virginia, said of the White House. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And to the extent that thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a problem, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure it helps them,â&#x20AC;? he said of the video. Democrats and environmental advocates say the relentless pictures are helpful politically because they highlight a problem that people know was caused by an oil company, not the president. They also hope the images â&#x20AC;&#x201D; plus pictures of oilcovered birds and beaches â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will win greater public acceptance of cleaner energy sources. Obama called for such a transition in an Oval Office speech Tuesday.

BAGHDAD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An alQaida-linked insurgent shot and killed his own father as he slept in his bed Friday for refusing to quit his job as an Iraqi interpreter for the U.S. military, police said, a rare deadly attack on a close family member over allegations of collaborating with the enemy. The attack happened on a particularly bloody day in Iraq, with at least 27 people killed nationwide in bombings and ambushes largely targeting the houses of government officials, Iraqi security forces and those seen as allied with them. Hameed al-Daraji, 50, worked as a contractor and translator for the U.S. military for seven years since shortly after the U.S.-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003. He was shot in the chest about 3 a.m. while sleeping in his house in Samarra, a former insurgent stronghold 60 miles (95 kilometers) north of Baghdad, police Lt. Emad Muhsin said. Authorities arrested the son and his cousin, saying the young men apparently were trying to prove their loyalty

after rejoining the insurgency. Police were also looking for another son who allegedly took part in the attack.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; BP removed Chief Executive Tony Hayward from day-to-day oversight of the Gulf oil spill crisis a day after he was pummeled by lawmakers in an appearance on Capitol Hill, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chairman said Friday. Carl-Henric Svanberg told Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sky News television that Hayward â&#x20AC;&#x153;is now handing over the operations, the daily operations to (BP Managing Director) Bob Dudley,â&#x20AC;? overshadowing news that after many setbacks BP was finally making real progress in siponing and burning off oil from the underwater gusher. Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen announced earlier Friday that a newly expanded containment system is capturing or incinerating more than 1 million gallons of oil daily, the first time it has approached its peak capacity. And the system will soon grow. By late June, the oil giant hopes it can keep nearly 90 percent of the flow from hitting the ocean. Allen also said the Coast Guard is ramping up efforts to capture the crude closer to shore with the help of private boats. As of Friday morning, between 65 million and 121.6 million gallons of oil have gushed into the Gulf of Mexico, based on federal daily flow rate estimates. The optimistic news about the containment plan was tempered by Haywardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s removal, which follows a June 4 announcement by BP that Dudley, and American oil executive, would lead the long-term response to the oil spill once the leak had been stopped. Svanbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement appeared to accelerate that timeline, as millions of gallons of crude continue to gush into the Gulf.

Last year, the stay-athome mission relied on kid power, adult volunteers and donations of money and materials to make about $37,000 worth of improvements. This year, the church is shooting for a $45,000 makeover. The work includes tearing up old sidewalks and pouring new ones, building a picnic shelter, painting resident cottages and landscaping around them. The kids treat it like a mission where they leave the comforts of home behind. Cell phones and iPods aren’t allowed. They are required to wear long pants. Their work day runs from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with breaks for lunch and snacks. The evening includes showers, dinner, a church service and free time for fellowship. The boys sleep overnight at Nazareth’s Carl Lyerly Activity Center, making pallets on the gymnasium floor out of air mattresses or sleeping bags. The girls bivouac at the church. The East Rowan YMCA provides a place for the mission kids to take showers after their sweaty days. The landscaping and painting crews are the most labor intensive, requiring up to 30 kids each. The landscapers have been divided into two teams: the Bush Boogers and the Mulch Monsters. Around several of the cottages, old bushes are coming out and new bushes are replacing them. The crews also are shoveling and spreading about a tractor-trailer load of mulch. On Wednesday, the first day of the mission, the teams did most of their work around the expansive Leonard Cottage. “We’ve got three times this much to do,” Shoaf said. The paint crews’ work will include the scraping and painting of 10 bedrooms, with adults coming

in after 5 p.m. to serve as a second shift. The mission continues through Saturday morning. The kids come mostly from Nazareth Community Church, Faith Baptist Church and the children’s home itself. Michael Hess, an 11year-old resident at Nazareth, said he likes the work because it helps his home. “And you’re making it look better than it was and taking time out of your life to help others,” he said. Kaitlynn Fleming, 17, and her younger sister, Kristyn, have lived here for about three years, though Kaitlynn recently moved into transitional housing, preparing her for the days after Nazareth. “I’m giving back what they gave to me,” she said of helping out Wednesday. “I’m a mulcher.” Kaitlynn is among several of the children’s home residents who also have joined Nazareth Community Church. “The church has loved these kids, and they know it,” Shoaf said. Nazareth Community Church’s chapel was the original building for the long-ago orphanage. Shoaf said the church property is owned by the children’s home, and his congregation is operating under a 60year lease. Heather Ciscel, 17, attends Nazareth Community Church and graduated a week ago from Carson High School. While many of her peers have celebrated their graduations by going to the beach, Ciscel said she was drawn to the mission work. “I just feel like it’s serving a better purpose,” she said. Ciscel had just finished a day of mostly scraping paint in the Leonard Cottage courtyard and in one of the other cottages. Her paint crew partners included Hannah Shinn, Breanna Sloop and Jennifer Earnhardt. In the cafeteria, Lisa McDonald, an adult volunteer and member of Faith Baptist Church, was writ-

The Rev. Mike Shoaf, pastor of Nazareth Community Church, takes a break with Michael Hess, an 11-year-old resident of the children’s home. ing notes of encouragement and faith to the children working this week. The notes were then going into envelopes, delivered to the kids later. Tammy Haynes and Cecil Swain, both members of Nazareth Community Church, were helping her. “I really have a passion for Nazareth children,” said McDonald, whose school bus route for Erwin Middle School stopped at the home. By donating time and materials, local companies have made the stay-athome mission possible. Godley’s Garden Center (landscaping materials), Food Lion ( a pallet of water), Cozart Lumber (wood for the shelter) and Charles Cornelius Construction (concrete) are among the companies which have helped. “The key to all of it is being local,” Shoaf said. “The Lord makes it work out.” Forty yards of concrete were donated by someone wishing to remain anonymous. Participating kids were asked to pay $25 a head, if they could afford it. Shoaf spends a lot of his time running errands — he made three trips to the paint store Wednesday. He leads the evening services and checks on the crews during the day. Youth pastor Grant Hinson also has played a key role. Shoaf credits his wife,

Mickelson makes push BY DOUG FERGUSON

“He just ignored us,” Landon Donovan said. “Or he didn’t understand.” Perhaps Coulibaly, working his first World Cup game, will never explain himself. By the rules, he doesn’t have to speak to the media on game days, and his next availability isn’t until Monday. Perhaps it will remain one of those unsolved soccer mysteries. What’s known for now is this: Donovan and Michael Bradley scored second-half goals that did count, and U.S. hopes to reach the second round remained alive with a 2-2 tie Friday.

He gave the gallery what it wanted. He gave the U.S. Open what it needed. Mickelson beat the entire field at a major for the first time in his career — a tournament-best 66 — to put some life into an overcast day and give himself another chance to finally take something more than silver home from a U.S. Open. One day after he didn’t make a single birdie, he made six of them. It wasn’t enough to catch Graeme McDowell, who set the early pace with a 3-under

SONOMA, Calif. — Kasey Kahne won the pole Friday at Infineon Raceway in the same car he drove to victory in last year’s race on the road course. K a h n e turned a lap of 93.893 mph around the 11-turn, 1.99-mile course in a Ford for Richard Petty Motorsports. KAHNE He knocked four-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson from the pole. Johnson, who has never won on a road course, qualified second at 93.809 mph in a Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports. “It’s a great car,” he said. “It’s the same car we JOHNSON ran here last year, minus the engine. We’ve got a new Ford engine that runs really well. I’m looking forward to seeing how it runs throughout the race. “Tomorrow (practice) is huge as far as getting the balance right and getting it to turn and hit the corners the way we want to.” K u r t Busch qualified third and was followed by series points leader Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon and Marcos AMBROSE Ambrose, who many consider the darkhorse pick to win Sunday’s race. Tony Stewart rebounded from a terrible practice session to qualify seventh, while Bobby Labonte, Greg Biffle and Martin Truex Jr. rounded out the top 10. Mark Martin was 11th and was followed by series winsleader Denny Hamlin, who has won the last two races and five overall. Dale Earnhardt Jr., the slowest car in practice, qualified 23rd. Among the three drivers who failed to qualify was Michael Waltrip, who was driving a Toyota with a special paint scheme created as part of a “Sponsafy Your Ride Contest.” The winning submission honored a woman’s 1-yearold grandson who suffers from a rare interstitial lung disease.

After East Rowan’s 13-6 loss to West Rowan, disgusted East coach Brian Hightower ordered a 7:30 a.m. practice for the following morning. East third baseman Noah Holmes didn’t wake up and didn’t make it. That meant a 5:30 a.m. solo practice for Holmes. “Noah is there waiting on me

Go run 10 poles.’ “Noah laughed and he went and ran those poles, and he wouldn’t have minded running 10 more. We

had a great relationship.” Holmes completed a monumental senior season with a .480 batting average, 46 runs, 17 doubles, 25 walks, 32 RBIs — and one state championship. Holmes was a terrific fielder and the leader of East’s drive to the 3A title. “I’ve never coached anyone who could do the things Noah did defensively at third base,” Hightower said. “We had high expectations

of him and put the pressure of the No. 3 hole on him. He gave us everything we could’ve asked and more.” When he’s old and gray, Holmes can brag to his grandchildren that he shared the 2010 Mark Norris Award with a guy who arguably had the best statistical season any Rowan hitter has ever had.

Strasburg sets mark BY JOSEPH WHITE Associated Press

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Stephen Strasburg has 32 strikeouts through three starts in the majors.

WASHINGTON — Stephen Strasburg can White Sox 2 hardly throw Nationals 1 any better. He set a strikeout record in front of President Barack Obama in another sensational performance. So what rankled him? He didn’t field and bunt as well as he pitched. The baseball holiday known as Strasmas — it comes every fifth day on your calendar right now — was again a spectacle Friday night. The 21-year-old rookie struck out 10 to run his total to an unprecedented 32 through three starts, but he experienced his first no-decision as the Chicago White

Sox beat the Washington Nationals 2-1 in 11 innings before another sellout crowd. Strasburg’s answers about his strikeout record (“That’s never going to be a goal of mine”) and the president (“Awesome — obviously he’s from Chicago, so he wanted to come watch the White Sox, too”) were mostly obligatory, but he was willing to speak more at length about two mistakes any pitcher might routinely make. The game’s first batter, speedy Juan Pierre, barely beat Strasburg to the bag on a grounder to first and eventually came around to score Chicago’s first run. Then, in the sixth, Strasburg failed to get a bunt down with a runner on first and one out.

SALISBURY POST

South wins by 10-run rule BY JORDAN HONEYCUTT sports@salisburypost.com

Another offensive explosion occurred in S. Rowan 15 South Rowan Friday Lexington 5 on night. Twenty-four hours after being “Tuttled” by Kannapolis pitcher John J. Tuttle, South’s bats came back to life in a big way. South scored nine runs in the fifth and pounded Lexington 15-5 in seven innings. The biggest blow came from the usual suspect — Maverick Miles. Miles came to bat with the bases loaded in the fifth and crushed a mammoth shot to left field for a grand slam. “After struggling with Kannapolis, we all just wanted to come back out here at home and swing the bats like we always have,” Miles said. Randy Shepherd, Patrick Bearden, and Julio Zubillaga hammered triples for South, and lefty Jesse park turned in a nice pitching performance. Park hurled five innings, allowing two earned runs on seven hits, while fanning four. “I thought Jesse gave us a gutsy outing on the mound and I wanted to go with him as long as I could,” South coach Michael Lowman said. “We also seemed to find that one inning again that we put the bat on the ball and scored a lot of runs.” Trailing 13-3 going into the

sixth. Lexington scored two runs off Justin Morrison in the top of the inning, only to see South strike for two of its own in the bottom half for MILES the 10-run rule. One key attribute to South’s team is aggressiveness, and it was was on full display. Balls hit into the gap that would be doubles for most teams were legged into triples by South. Lowman also made a nice hitand-run call in the fifth, with Miles on first and Gunnar Hogan at the plate, Lowman sent Miles, and Hogan lined a hard shot up the middle that made the play work to perfection. “Our park is 400 feet to the gap in right-center, so we should get some triples,” Lowman said. “I like to put pressure on the defense and we had the perfect situation for the hit-and-run and it worked.” Patrick Bearden went 2-for-4 with three runs, while Shepherd went 2-for-4 with three RBIs. Lexington was a game opponent for four innings, getting a leadoff homer from Jon Jarvis. Lexington trailed South 4-2 before the bottom fell out in the fifth. The victory for South restores momentum and confidence after

suffering its first league loss to Tuttle and Kannapolis. “I just told the guys that, hey, we weren’t going to go undefeated and the only SHEPHERD team that wins their last game is going to be the state champion, and that we have to have a short memory,” Lowman said. South plays Wilkes at home tonight and has a rematch against Kannapolis on Sunday.

Rowan pulls away in shootout BY MIKE LONDON

mlondon@salisburypost.com

CONCORD — WSTP-1490 broadcaster Howard Platt likes to call it “AreRowan 22 na Baseball,” it’s a frenConcord 8 and zied game Rowan County is getting pretty good at. Rowan outscored Concord 228 on Friday at Central Cabarrus High in a three-hour struggle that included 30 hits and 16 walks. “It’s great that we’re scoring runs, and I’m not saying it’s not fun, but this really isn’t the way baseball was meant to be played,” Rowan coach Jim Gantt said. “It just seems like everybody lifts weights now and everybody can hit. “ For a lot of Legion pitchers, it’s been sort of like — ‘Hey, welcome to college baseball.’ ” It took a while, but Rowan (137, 7-4) broke open a close game in the seventh inning and won its sixth straight. “That final score was a lot different than how the game really was,” Gantt said. Even with all the run support, Rowan starting pitcher Forrest Buchanan, 10-0 last summer, couldn’t pick up his first win of the summer. He gave up four runs in the first, appeared to be finding a groove in the third and fourth, but exited one out shy of qualifying for the win after he ran into control issues in the fifth. Cody Laws pitched 31⁄3 innings of walk-free baseball to bump his record to 4-1. Rowan’s offense came from

everywhere. Eight starters had multiple hits. Justin Morris, the one guy in the lineup who didn’t get a hit, still scored three HOLMES runs. Wesley Barker knocked in five runs, Luke Thomas drove in four, and Hayden Untz scored four times to provide competition, but Noah Holmes still had the biggest offensive night. Holmes accumulated two homers, two walks, an RBI single and an RBI groundout to compile a 4-4-3-5 boxscore. “It’s like the bats have just come around for everybody,” said Holmes, who also turned in a stellar defensive game at third base. “They had some good pitchers, but we did a good job of waiting back, being patient and getting some pitches to hit.” Trailing 4-2 in the third, Rowan put up six runs to take the lead for good. Untz had a run-scoring double. Holmes capped the inning with a twoBARKER run shot to right. Barker’s tworun double in the fourth gave Rowan a 10-5 lead. Holmes crushed a solo homer in the fifth. Concord (5-8, 4-7) got three hits from Matt Barrier, hung in the game behind some very

Barker and Thomas whacked two-run singles in the eighth as Rowan scored seven times and made a charge for the 10-run rule. Rowan has scored 68 runs in its last five division games. “Anytime you score 22 runs, it’s a good game,” said a mudcaked Untz, who walked three times to raise his team-leading total to 21. “But we all know we have to stop giving up so many.”

Braves 6, Royals 4

Associated Press

BOSTON — David Ortiz hugged Manny Ramirez to welcome him back to Fenway Park. Then he hit a home run to move alongside his former teammate on the Boston’s all-time home run list. Ortiz hit his 274th homer for the Red Sox to tie his quirky former teammate for fifth on the franchise’s all-time list, leading Boston to a 10-6 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night in Ramirez’s first game back since his departure. Ramirez, who went 1-for-5, was greeted warmly by the Red Sox and with a mixed reaction from a sold-out crowd that included Roger Clemens. Braves 6, Royals 4 ATLANTA — Chipper Jones and pitcher Derek Lowe each drove in two runs and Lowe won his third straight start at home. The Braves, winners of three straight and five of six overall, improved to 22-7 at Turner Field. Atlanta has won 12 of its last 13 at home. Phillies 9, Twins 5 PHILADELPHIA — Ryan

Howard homered twice and Chase Utley also went deep. Tigers 7, Diamondbacks 5 DETROIT — Brandon Inge hit a tiebreaking RBI triple in the eighth inning for the Tigers, who wasted leads of 4-0 and 5-4 before sending Arizona to its 14th consecutive road loss. Marlins 7, Rays 4 MIAMI — Mike Stanton hit a grand slam for his first major league home run, part of a fiverun first inning off Matt Garza. Mets 4, Yankees 0 NEW YORK — Hisanori Takahashi (6-2) outpitched Javier Vazquez (6-6) in their second lowscoring duel this season and the Mets extended their winning streak to eight games. With the bases loaded in the ninth inning, Francisco Rodriguez struck out Derek Jeter and retired Nick Swisher on a foulout to end it. Rangers 9, Astros 3 HOUSTON — Rookie Justin Smoak homered and drove in a career-high four runs. Cardinals 6, Athletics 4 ST. LOUIS — Matt Holliday homered and drove in three runs in his first successful night in the

STRASBURG FROM 1B

“Didn’t get over there in time in the first inning, probably should have been an out there,” Strasburg said. “I didn’t get the bunt down. It’s the little things like that, up here they’re going to exploit it. I’m just going to come in tomorrow and work on my bunting a little bit — and see the (fielding) play out before it happens next time.” With an attitude like that, he’s going to be hard to beat. The White Sox did it by countering with Gavin Floyd, who faced the minimum number of batters through six of his eight innings.

No. 2 slot. Albert Pujols, a major leaguebest .352 hitter in interleague play for his career, singled in a run and walked twice. Pirates 4, Indians 3 PITTSBURGH — Carlos Santana reached base four times and hit an RBI double to help the Cleveland Indians extend Pittsburgh’s second-longest losing streak in 55 years to 12 games. Angels 7, Cubs 6 CHICAGO — Scott Kazmir outpitched Carlos Silva (8-2) to win his fourth straight start, and Torii Hunter hit a tiebreaking home run in the sixth inning. Blue Jays 3, Giants 2 TORONTO — Edwin Encarnacion hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning and drove in three runs. NATIONAL LEAGUE Rockies 2, Brewers 0 DENVER — Jason Hammel pitched 7-plus sharp innings and brought in a run with a squeeze bunt, lifting injury-riddled Colorado past the Brewers. The right-hander ran his streak of scoreless innings to a career-best 251⁄3.

Mark Kotsay singled and scored on Alex Rios’ infield hit off Drew Storen (2-1) in the 11th. Obama’s arrival wasn’t announced inside the stadium, and there wasn’t the stringent security for fans that usually accompanies a public appearance. Joined by daughters Sasha and Malia and sipping a beer in a private box, the president wore a White Sox hat in support of his hometown team. Strasburg allowed four hits over seven innings and at one point retired 15 batters in a row. He lowered his ERA to 1.86 and didn’t walk a batter for the second time in three starts. J.R. Richard held the previous record for strikeouts in his first three major league starts, tallying 29 for the Houston Astros in 1971.

Hightower: Rowan County coach of the year BY MIKE LONDON

mlondon@salisburypost.com

GRANITE QUARRY — Salisbury and South Rowan produced turnaround baseball seasons, while Carson and North Rowan made significant jumps from 2009. It was a banner season and then some for Rowan County. West Rowan, which took a tiny dip from 15 wins to 14 and missed the playoffs on a tiebreaker, was the only decliner. And put an asterisk next to West’s season. If coach David Wright doesn’t lose his star, Jon Crucitti, to a knee injury, the Falcons win at least 18. Scott Maddox logged his 100th coaching win at Salisbury during a season in which the Hornets improved from 7-17 to 14-11 and finished second in the CCC. That wasn’t supposed to happen. Not after Salisbury had graduated its two studs. Thad Chrismon’s South Rowan program made even bigger strides. The Raiders trampolined from 7-16 to 1610 as youngsters such as Tyler Kowalczyk, Eric Tyler and Matt Miller delivered.

PLAYERS

Rob Linder’s North team doubled its win total from five to 10 while breaking county records for most mileage on road trips. Chris Cauble piloted Carson to 20 wins for the first time and racked up the school’s first playoff victory. Chrismon, Cauble and Maddox offered Coach of the Year credentials in an ordinary year, but this was an extraordinary, statechampionship season for East Rowan. That made Brian Hightower an automatic choice. Hightower is Rowan County Coach of the Year for the fourth time in five seasons. No one disputes this was his best job so far. Why? Because East graduated all the key contributors to its 23-win 2009 team except Noah Holmes and Preston Troutman. Hightower said the first step toward a state championship was taken at the awards banquet that followed the 2009 season. His program was under pressure from the NCHSAA, he was losing a great senior class, and he realized he was standing at a crossroads.

JON C. LAKEY/SALISBURY POST

East coach Brian Hightower talks with Noah Holmes. The disappointment of being unable to win a state title in 2008-09 with teams that had the talent to do it ate at a guy who puts eating and breathing well behind baseball on his priority list. Piling on top of Hightower’s frustration were allegations of rule-breaking. “We were losing great players like Smitty (Zach Smith) and Corbin Shive,

and there was a lot of bad stuff coming down on us,” Hightower said. “I admit I pushed some rules, but I hadn’t broken them.” What Hightower told East’s returning players at that modest banquet in the school cafeteria was that nothing was going to change. He vowed the Mustangs would reload. He didn’t promise any

shortcuts. What he promised was blood, sweat and tears for anyone interested. “What we do at East is give kids the opportunity to work their butts off and to get better at baseball,” Hightower said. “Our coaching staff is going to show up and keep showing up, and if the kids show up and go to work, they’ll get better.” Apparently, a lot of players showed up. East didn’t have the overwhelming team speed it had in 2008 when Smith, Justin Roland, Micah Jarrett and Ben DeCelle ran wild. East didn’t possess the outfield offense or the veteran arms it had in 2009, but it was a good young team that progressed to being very good by midseason. Then, finally, with the emergence of reliever Will Johnson and center fielder Will Sapp, it evolved into a great team that won a county-record 31 games. Hightower’s outfield corners were a revolving door. His pitching staff, after horse Thomas Allen went down, was a patchwork quilt. But the Mustangs became increasingly confident there

was no way they could lose once Johnson took the mound. East rallied from behind seven times, including both games in the Western championship series against power-hitting Tuscola. The Mustangs won their last 13. “East didn’t have as many big-name stars as they usually have,” Chrismon said. “But they had a lot of pitchers, their hitters didn’t strike out, and they played defense. They were solid.” Being solid accomplished things being spectacular hadn’t. The blue-collar Mustangs carved out a stae championship. “We’re passionate about baseball at East — and we’re never gonna deny that,” Hightower said. “This season, I couldn’t have had a better wife, a better staff or better parents. “But the biggest reason we had an unbelievable season was unbelievable kids. Not one of ’em played for himself. Every single one of them played for his team and his teammates, and I’ll love ’em forever for that.”

State champ East dominates all-county team BY MIKE LONDON

mlondon@salisburypost.com

Win a state title, get the most all-county players. East Rowan did just that, putting eight players on the 2010 all-county baseball team after sweeping Wilson Hunt for the 3A championship. Carson, a 20-game winner, won its first-ever playoff game and placed six. The Cougars were second in the North Piedmont Conference and South was tied for third, turning things around from 2009 by winning 17 games and taking a first-round playoff win. East didn’t dominate everything, however. Noah Holmes, the Mustangs’ talented third baseman, shared the Player of the Year award with South’s Maverick Miles. • All-county capsules ... East Rowan Noah Holmes, Sr., 3B The Co-Player of the Year had a stretch of 16 straight games in which he scored a run and finished the season with nine straight errorless games at third base. Also enjoyed a nine-game spree in which he battered pitchers at a .608 clip. A repeater on the allcounty team, Holmes signed with Appalachian State. Preston Troutman, Sr., SS-RHP Troutman batted .376 with 14 doubles, six triples and 41 runs scored.

Celebration turns rowdy in L.A. Associated Press

The NBA notebook ... LOS ANGELES — A jubilant celebration over the Los Angeles Lakers dramatic win in the NBA championship turned rowdy in scattered sections of the city, with raucous revelers hurling rocks and bottles at officers, setting fires and jumping on vehicles. Hundreds of police officers massed around the Staples Center before Game 7 of the NBA finals on Thursday night, aiming to prevent a repeat of the violence that accompanied the Lakers’ victory last year. But despite their massive presence, scattered pockets of violence erupted in neighborhoods near the arena. No major incidents were reported in the rest of the city, police said. At least 20 people had been arrested late Thursday and that number was expected to rise, Los Angeles police Lt. John Romero said. Most of the arrests were for public intoxication, while others were for vandalism and inciting a riot. Television news footage showed several people jumping on a taxi as it attempted to leave the area near the arena after the Lakers beat the Boston Celtics 83-79. Someone opened a rear door of the vehicle, while others rocked it back and forth. The taxi eventually made its way through the crowd and out of the area. Television footage also showed a man being beaten and a car set on fire. And there

were scattered reports of windows being broken at several businesses. Some men ran shirtless in the street, while other people revved car engines and honked their horns in celebration. Broken glass and burnt debris lined the roads. Jazmine Rodriguez, 24, lives in an apartment building not far from Staples Center. She said every car on her street had its windows smashed. “When we came down here, only one window was smashed. The cops told us to go back inside, and they (revelers) smashed the other one,” Rodriguez said. Delmi Ramos tried to salvage what she could from her car, which was filled with shards of broken glass. “We just wanted to see the celebration and be part of the Lakers’ win. We never thought this would happen,” she said. “It’s these young people who don’t know how to behave. They cause damage to people, to the community, because they don’t know how to celebrate in a healthy way.” RATINGS NEW YORK — Game 7 drew the highest preliminary rating for an NBA finals game since 1998. The Lakers’ 83-79 win Thursday night on ABC earned an 18.2 overnight rating. That’s the highest for an NBA game since Michael Jordan won his last championship with the Bulls in Game 6 of the 1998 finals against the Jazz, which posted a 22.9.

NBA: Offseason of change Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — New coaches for the NBA’s winningest franchises. New superstars for some of the teams chasing them. Anything is possible in an offseason that could reshape the league, and it officially started after the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Boston Celtics 83-79 on Thursday in Game 7 of the NBA finals to win their second straight championship. While Kobe Bryant and the Lakers headed off to more celebrations — and Ron Artest’s promised to be a wild one — everyone else will spend the next few weeks plotting ways to close the gap. The draft is Thursday, and then it’s only another week after that until the most anticipated free agency period ever opens on July 1, when Miami will kick off its quest to get LeBron James or Chris Bosh to play with Dwyane Wade. What would you think about going for three in a row against a team like that, Kobe? “I don’t want to think about that,” Bryant said. “Those guys, I’ve seen those guys up close and personal. I don’t want to think about playing against both of them at the same time.” Chicago and New York also dream of a team with multiple superstars, and it might take something like that to stop the Lakers. Bryant, the two-time NBA finals MVP, is still near the top of his game, and Pau

Gasol appears to be getting better every year. But they don’t know yet who will be coaching them. Phil Jackson, who won his 11th title, will take some time before deciding if he will return. He could walk away and retire if he’s not satisfied with a likely pay cut, or perhaps draw an offer from somewhere else — perhaps to coach James in Cleveland? — if he wanted to stay on the sideline. A chance for yet another three-peat — he’s already done it three times — could keep him in Los Angeles. He wouldn’t offer much after the game, beyond saying that winning the title improves his chances of returning. Down the hall, the Celtics were preparing to be broken apart. Doc Rivers isn’t sure of his future, and even if he does return he knows it will be to a different locker room. “We’re not going to be the same team next year,” Rivers said. “Guys are going to not be there, so that was tough for me.” The Celtics haven’t been together that long, with Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett acquired in separate trades in the summer of 2007, joining Paul Pierce to form the core of a team that made two finals in three years. Their turnaround from laughingstock to powerhouse gives hope to the teams hoping for the quick fix this summer, leapfrogging the slow

process of building through the draft by acquiring veterans who are ready to compete for a championship now. At least nine teams could be $10 million or more under the salary cap, able to sign or trade for the types of players who could make them immediate threats to the Lakers. And while so much talk — some of it from the players themselves — is on the idea of a James-Wade type of pairing, it might not even take that much to topple the LEBRON JAMES champs.

called the 35-year-old Wallace a “warrior” who was considering retirement. Rivers said Wallace was battling cramps and strains, which kept him from going inside as he did early in the game. “We had to keep subbing him for one minute and two minutes, and I thought the reason we got up early was because of Rasheed Wallace,” Rivers said. “We got it low in the post, he started scoring, and I thought what happened was late in the game he got tired and had the injuries and we couldn’t go down anymore, and I think that had a huge impact on how we were playing. We had to go away from the post almost because of fatigue.” The Lakers even game-planned for the Celtics’ age. “With the Boston team obviously I saw Garnett fatigue,” coach Phil Jackson said. “And that’s been one of the issues we’ve had all the way through this series, is run him hard and keep running him if you get a chance because fatigue will affect his game.” It was a great run for the Celtics. They just didn’t have the legs to finish it.

Los Angeles police officers form a line to keep the crowd away from Staples Center.

LOS ANGELES — Fighting to stay on the floor every minute of perhaps the last game of his career, Rasheed Wallace finally threw up his hand when it was time for a break. And he wasn’t the only Boston Celtics player who was tired. “I think everyone is not only physically fatigued, but mentally fatigued,” forward Kevin Garnett said. Those old guys ran out of gas just short of the finish line. The Celtics nearly pulled off an improbable championship, leading most of the way against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 7 of the NBA finals on Thursday night before losing 83-79. They wasted a superb defensive effort when their offense stalled midway through the fourth quarter. Boston went without a field goal for nearly five minutes, a decisive stretch when Los Angeles grabbed control. “You know, it’s the first time all year that you can actually say at the end of the day we were old at the end of the game because we didn’t have enough bodies,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “I thought it hurt us.” It was nearly an 18th title for the league’s most decorated team, and perhaps its most unlikely. The Celtics were the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference after playing .500 ball over the second half of the season and were dismissed as too old to compete for a championship. “We had so much adversity. That’s why putting ourselves in a situation to do this would have been miraculous for us. It would have been wonderful,” Ray Allen said. Instead, they finally looked their age Thursday night. Allen’s jumper, one of the prettiest and most reliable in the NBA, was flat all night in a 3-for-14 performance. Paul Pierce was 5 of 15. Garnett, the other member of the aging Big Three, scored 17 points but managed only three rebounds and couldn’t keep Pau Gasol off the backboards. Pierce and Garnett both bent over with hands on shorts in the fourth quarter, usually a symbol of fatigue. A more recognizable sign: Wallace, another old guy who was forced to start and play 36 minutes because of Kendrick Perkins’ knee injury, had to motion to come out of the game when he became winded in the second half. “He was just trying to figure out a way to stay on the floor,” said Rivers, who

Switch messes with Martin’s team deals coming out every day. I get unbelievable calls from people in this garage, but we’re just not ready to pull the trigger.” HAMLIN SONOMA, Calif. — Denny Hamlin did not back off last week’s insinuation that NASCAR sometimes calls caution for debris just to liven up a race. Hamlin led by almost 10 seconds last week at Michigan when NASCAR called a debris caution with 15 laps remaining. Although he still won the race, he said after that the caution was because “this is show business.” Asked about it Friday at Infineon Raceway, he didn’t change his stance and explained that NASCAR often uses debris cautions to bunch up the field and make the race more exciting. “There is always debris around the track,” Hamlin said Friday at Infineon Raceway. “You can call anything debris. You could say that anything is debris and that it is a legitimate safety hazard, but I just think it’s the timing. ’OK, there it is, let’s pick it up and regroup.’ “For the sake of show, that’s OK, but for the sake of competition, it’s not always the right thing. But, if we weren’t talking about that last week, if NASCAR had let it go, people were going to be talking about a boring race, and that’s something we don’t want, either.” NATIONWIDE ELKHART LAKE, Wis. — Jacques is back — at least for this weekend. Canadian racing standout Jacques Villeneuve’s star has faded since he won the 1997 Formula One championship and the 1995 Indianapolis 500. He’ll be racing in the NASCAR Nationwide series at Road America this weekend and is hoping to crank his career back up. The 39-year-old hasn’t had a steady ride in a top-level racing series since 2006. He was close to returning to F1 this season and still hasn’t given up on it. But he also remains intrigued by NASCAR. “I have been away from full-season racing for a few years. I was busy raising kids, and that’s actually more work than racing,” said Villeneuve, who has two children. “Now the plan is to get behind the wheel full-time to get racing.”

SONOMA, Calif. — The spoiler is spoiling Mark Martin’s season, and if his Hendrick Motorsports team can’t get it figured out quickly, last season’s title contender could be a spectator in this year’s championship Chase. This time last season Martin had three wins, three poles and had established himself as a legitimate threat to teammate Jimmie Johnson’s championship reign. He fell short of winning the title — Johnson beat him by 141 points — but still won five races in a remarkable season. Duplicating those numbers hasn’t come easy this year. Martin heads into Sunday’s race at Infineon Raceway winless and clinging to the 12th and final spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field. Crew chief Alan Gustafson puts the shortcomings squarely on himself and his failure to properly adjust when NASCAR switched from the wing to the spoiler back in March. “I will be the first to admit I didn’t do a good job with it,” Gustafson said Friday. “We should have known better. We’re paid to know better, but we missed it and didn’t get it as quickly as we should.” In fairness to Gustafson and his No. 5 team, the switch to the spoiler has seemed to affect the entire Hendrick Motorsports organization. Often viewed as unflappable, the top team in NASCAR has suddenly become very vulnerable as Joe Gibbs Racing and Richard Childress Racing have closed the gap. Johnson won three of the first five races — all with the wing — and since the switch to the spoiler, Hendrick cars have gone winless. “Definitely, we’ve had to work harder on the spoiler,” Hendrick said Friday. “It caught us a little by surprise. It upset the balance of our cars. We just have to work to get it fixed. You go through this.” But no one seems to be suffering as much as Martin’s team, which could find itself outside the top 12 with a poor run Sunday. The 51-year-old Martin remains upbeat, though, and didn’t present as

stormy a view of the situation as his crew chief seemed to have. “We’re not performing, but we are,” he began. “We’re better in execution than we were a year ago. We’re taking what we have and we’re finishing better with it than we did a year ago. Had we been doing as good a job last year, as we have this year, functioning in that respect, we wouldn’t have been sweating quite as hard about making the Chase. “Some of the changes to the cars (the spoiler) have actually affected the cars more than we realized on the surface. And our competition has either responded or it worked in their favor or both, and elevated them above us in the stack.” HENDRICK SONOMA, Calif. — Rick Hendrick dismissed a report that Kasey Kahne will drive for Phoenix Racing next season, the gap year before he moves into Hendrick Motorsports’ No. 5 car. But where Hendrick plans to put Kahne isn’t figured out, either. “No new news there,” Hendrick said Friday at Infineon Raceway. Kahne signed with Hendrick Motorsports in April to drive the No. 5 Chevrolet in 2012, after current driver Mark Martin’s contract expires. The deal called for Hendrick to find a place for Kahne next season while he waits for his seat to open. SI.com reported last week that Hendrick was working on a deal with James Finch to put Kahne in the No. 09 car for 2011. Finch’s Phoenix Racing leans on Hendrick Motorsports for equipment, and last year used Brad Keselowski in several races when Keselowski was a Hendrick developmental driver. But Hendrick said he’s got nothing in the works with Finch. “I don’t know where that came from,” Hendrick said. “James Finch is a good friend and a good customer of our engine shop and I don’t know how that got started. “I’ve had a lot more options than I thought I would and a lot of it is just waiting for the right time and the right deal and ... I haven’t been in a hurry. I know we’ve got some good options and there are new

And for one moment, Edu felt “pure excitement.” It did not last. Now it comes down to Wednesday’s match against Algeria. “My guess is there’s not many teams in this tournament that could have done what we did and arguably won the game. And that is what the American spirit is about,” Donovan said. “And I’m sure people back home are proud of that.” Slovenia (1-0-1) leads Group C with four points and would have qualified for the second round with a win. The U.S. and England (both 0-0-2) are tied for second with two points each following England’s 0-0 draw with Algeria (0-1-1).

Players watch Maurice Edu send the ball toward the net for a goal that was later disallowed. advantage in goals scored over the English, currently 3-1. “We can still get through,” goalkeeper Tim Howard said. “Being down 2-0 in a game, I’ve played long enough to feel very lucky and fortunate to come out of it still in the World Cup.” Donovan took a free kick from the side of the penalty area in the 85th minute as

players jostled in front. Aleksandar Radosavljevic held Michael Bradley in a bear hug, and Edu spun away from Bojan Jokic and, one step into the 6-yard box, stuck out his left foot and put the ball in. It was unclear to the U.S. what Coulibaly actually called. At the time of the whistle, American captain Carlos Bo-

canegra, who was a few feet away from Edu, did have an arm around Nejc Pecnik, preventing the Slovene from jumping for the ball. “I’m a little gutted to be honest,” Donovan said. “I don’t know how they stole that last goal from us.” “Whistles were blown very early. No explanation,” Bocanegra said. And there’s no forgetting it. “What I’ve heard is that there were three fouls in the box, and all of which were against Slovenia players,” coach Bob Bradley said. “In the midst of the game with everything that’s going on, it’s rare that when a tough call is made that a referee at that moment will give you an answer. Sometimes after the fact you might get an answer, but that’s not always the case, either. When you’re involved in the game long enough, there are moments where you are frustrated, because you feel that situations have not been handled 100 percent correctly or fairly. But that’s the way the game works sometimes, so you move on.”

The blazing stretch ended on the par4 eighth with a 5-iron off the tee that came perilously close to the edge of a 60-foot cliff, setting up a wedge he hit over the ocean to 15 feet and another big roar. Just like that, he was back in the game. “I can’t wait for tomorrow’s round,” Mickelson. “I love being on this golf course.” Tiger Woods believes he’s still in the mix, too, although a pedestrian round of 1-over 72 left him seven shots behind. Woods has never won a major when trailing by more than six shots going into the weekend. Asked if he liked his positions, Woods replied, “Absolutely.” “I’m right there in the championship,” Woods said. “I just need to make a few more birdies, a few more putts on the weekend, and I’ll be right there.” It starts with McDowell, a 30-year-old with five European Tour victories and a pair of 18-hole leads in the majors. He was among the early starters, when the greens were in the best shape and the air was cool and calm. McDowell holed a 35-foot birdie putt on the 14th — the par 5 that chewed up so many other players throughout the day — and pulled ahead with smart shots into the fourth hole and the par-5 sixth to build his lead. “I’m really trying to put no expectations on myself this weekend because I know there’s a lot of great players out here ... and this golf course is extremely difficult,” McDowell said. It just didn’t look that way Friday. It was a gentle start to the second round, with the calm of Stillwater Cove broken only by a pair of dolphins searching for breakfast. Over the next 12 hours, conditions didn’t change much except for a freshening breeze late in the day. McDowell’s round ended with a three-putt bogey on the ninth hole, but it was significant. By dropping to 3-under, he assured that everyone within 10 shots, 7-over or better, would make the cut to play on the weekend — a group that included 60-yearold Tom Watson. Watson, who won his only U.S. Open at Pebble Beach in 1982, made par on the last hole to follow his 78 with a 71. Turns out he would have made the cut on his own, one of the 83 players who were among the top 60 and ties. Watson, the only player to compete in all five U.S. Opens at Pebble Beach, was not surprised by the good scoring. “When you have some wind, that’s when it’s hard to get on these greens, to get the right shot in there, to get the right distance,” Watson said. “Today, the course is going to play as easy as it’s going to play for four rounds. I can guarantee you that.” Mickelson made him look like a prophet. Woods did not. The world’s No. 1 player made his first birdie of the tournament by chipping in on his second hole at No. 11. But he made only two more birdies. Mickelson knew he would have to take advantage on the first seven holes, and he did just that. “I thought something in the 60s was out there and would get me into contention,” Mickelson said.

Pat Terry will perform at The Inn Friday, June 25. sic in the first place. And that music still held a special place in his heart. In the eighties, when Terry worked with producer Mark Heard to put out three solo albums, the rock influence was much more obvious. (Terry’s latest CD is dedicated to Heard.) Then and now, Terry hasn’t felt the need to create a separation between his Christian faith and his activities as a “secular” songwriter in Nashville. He thinks it’s okay to be known as a person of faith who happens to write country music. Even his so-called secular songs are infused with faith, just as his Christian principles guide his daily life, not just on Sunday. He slips comfortably in and out of genres, easily ignoring boundaries that others would impose. The “Laugh for a Million Years” album illustrates his philosophy well. It’s a country album through and through, with some tracks religious in nature, others more spiritual, some allegorical, and at times just a good country ballad. Many of the songs tell stories, and movingly so, with themes of hope and forgiveness.

The liveliest track is the rollicking “Jump On It,” about a family delighting in their prized purchase, a trampoline, in spite of their poor household and unpaid bills. Just as this family isn’t concerned about criticism from neighbors who may feel the money could have been better spent, Terry is impervious to critics who say his talent could be better directed into a certain genre. His reflective “Someplace Green” displays particularly nice guitar work. If it sounds familiar, it may be because you heard the version of this song recorded by the Oak Ridge Boys, and featured in one of their music videos. Also remarkable is the fact that Terry has managed to be a standout in the Nashville songwriting scene without moving to

Nashville. He still lives in his hometown of Smyrna, Ga. For a long time, he made frequent trips to Nashville to work, but he never changed his home base. Terry isn’t concerned that his best-known songs are associated with the artists who performed and made them famous rather than with him, such as “Home Where I Belong,” which has been famously covered by B.J. Thomas. Terry says, “That’s the highest compliment, when an artist makes it his or her own.” • • • Pat Terry will be performing at The Inn, 1012 Mooresville Road, at 8 p.m., Friday, June 25. This is a ticketed event. For information call 704-213-1467.

he former lead singer of The Original Drifters, the Rev. Reginald Funderburke, will be performing at 4 p.m. Sunday at The Building in Cleveland.

Now called into the ministry to preach, Funderburke has returned to the Carolinas and has formed a group call Rev. Reginald Funderburke and The Anointed Temples. Out of Great Falls, S.C., the group consists of a 6year-old drummer, a 17year-old high school student, a 19-year-old Winthrop College student and other background musicians.

Proverbs 4 (New International Version)

Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding. 2 I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching. 3 When I was a boy in my father’s house, still tender, and an only child of my mother, 4 he taught me and said, “Lay hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands and you will live. 5 Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them. 6 Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. 7 Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. 8 Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. 9 She will set a garland of grace on your head and present you with a crown of splendor.” 10 Listen, my son, accept what I say, and the years of your life will be many. 11 I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. 12 When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble. 13 Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life. 14 Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men. 15 Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way. 16 For they cannot sleep till they do evil; they are robbed of slumber till they make someone fall. 17 They eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence. 18 The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. 19 But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble. 20 My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. 21 Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; 22 for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body. 23 Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. 24 Put away perversity from your mouth; keep corrupt talk far from your lips. 25 Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you. 26 Make level paths for your feet and take only ways that are firm. 27 Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil. 1

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS A majority of states saw their unemployment rates drop in May. But the widespread declines were mainly because people gave up looking for work and were no longer counted. The unemployment rate fell in 37 states and the District of Columbia, the Labor Department said Friday. Six states had increases and seven experienced no change. Fortyone states and the District of Columbia saw a net increase in jobs. But that reflected national data showing a huge gain because of government hiring of temporary census workers. Stocks rose for a fourth straight day Friday, led by shares of minerals companies after gold prices settled at another record high. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 16 points and ended the week up 2.3 percent. Broader indexes also edged higher. The Dow posted its second consecutive weekly gain. Before that, the Dow had been down for three weeks. Investors have been trying to determine whether the stock market’s “correction” is over. A correction is

generally considered a drop of 10-20 percent from a recent peak. The Dow has risen back 6.4 percent from its lowest close of the year on June 7, but it’s still down 6.7 percent from the 2010 high it reached on April 26. The incipient panic about Europe’s debt crisis seems to have subsided into mere pessimism this week, with the euro rebounding and investors encouraged by political leaders’ new willingness to take quick action to calm market fears. The big underlying issues haven’t been erased: Spain is still dogged by speculation it may eventually need a rescue plan similar to the bailout already given to Greece. And many governments are cutting back on welfare programs and other spending to chip away at their heavy debt burdens — and sometimes facing street protests as a result. Yet positive news from trouble spots Spain and Greece, as well as EU leaders’ united pledge for more banking transparency, helped buoy the euro.

Although nothing is likely to be handed to you on a silver platter in the year ahead, you can accomplish far more than you ever thought possible if you are prepared to work toward your aims. You’ll be capable of remarkable attainments. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — There is no question that you will give of yourself to others when needed without thinking about what’s in it for you. This will elevate you in the eyes of others. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Taking on more responsibility than others might doesn’t brother you a bit. When you see someone in need, you won’t hesitate for a minute to jump in and help however you can.

Fibromuscular dysplasia may have caused stroke

A loser must go before he can ruff BY PHILLIP ALDER

United Feature Syndicate

The Senior Life Master was watching the rain pour down outside. “No wonder we had so many tables this afternoon,” he commented to the young man sitting with him. “No chance to play golf. ”I remember a deal played on a day like this,“ he continued. The SLM wrote down the North and South hands. ”Constance ffoster-Smythe was South, partnering her fiance, Clarence Comment. How did Constance make six spades after West led the diamond king?“ While the young man thought, the SLM commented on the auction. To be honest (he continued), six spades is against the odds, needing spades 3-2 and hearts 4-3. Also, on this lead, if West has three spades, he must have four hearts. Most Souths would respond one spade and jump to four spades on the second round. North, with three diamond losers and only one spade, would pass. Constance, though, started with a strong jump shift. And Courtney jumped to five spades to ask for a control in the unbid suit, diamonds. Constance, with a trump loser, could not afford a diamond loser. And if an opponent trumped in before she discarded both of her diamond losers, she would be down. She won the first trick and drew two rounds of trumps. Then she took dummy’s top hearts, throwing one diamond, ruffed a heart in her hand, crossed to the board with a club, and called for another

heart. If East had ruffed, Constance would have pitched her last diamond. And when he discarded, she ruffed, went back to the board in clubs, and threw her diamond nine on the high heart.

Sarah McLachlan returns with new CD, Lilith Tour

LOS ANGELES (AP) — At long last, there’s an allnew studio album from Sarah McLachlan. “Laws of Illusion” — her first in seven years — was released this month. What took so long? “I luxuriously get to pick and choose how much I want to work and how much I want to be mom,” McLachlan said. “I just don’t want to miss any of it. So, I made a choice to just kind of put my career, not on hold, but just pick and choose what I do and be a mom for the most part. I really love having that time with them.” The album’s first single is an upbeat pop confection, “Loving You is Easy.”

Dear Dr. Gott: I am an active 58-year-old female, 5 feet 6 inches and 119 pounds. I had Grave’s disease, for which medication was ineffective, so I was given radioactive iodine, which eliminated my thyDR. PETER roid. I now take Levoxyl GOTT as well as full-strength aspirin and a daily multivitamin. My father died at age 57 of a stroke. He also had asthma and high blood pressure. My mother passed away from cancer and had adult-onset diabetes. Out of the blue, while driving with my husband to our daughter’s house three hours away, I suddenly had split vision. A horizontal black line appeared in the middle of my vision with a picture on top and one on the bottom. It was very disconcerting, and I knew something very bad had happened, although the incidence only lasted about two minutes. I called my physician in my hometown who thought everything was OK since my “numbers” (cholesterol, blood pressure, etc.) had always been very good, but he told me to come in and see him the following week when I returned home. He ordered an MRI and an MRA, which showed that I had suffered a stroke and also have fibromuscular dysplasia in my neck. Because he was unfamiliar with the dysplasia, he sent me to a

neurologist, who doubted the diagnosis because fibromuscular dysplasia typically occurs in younger people. To confirm the diagnosis, he sent me for a CT angiography, which showed I did indeed have it in the right internal carotid artery. I was told there was no definitive treatment and that it may progress rapidly or slowly, although he thought in my case it would be slow. I was also told that my particular case wasn’t considered severe because there was no bulging and there was otherwise good flow through the arteries. The neurologist passed his recommendations on to my regular physician for periodic follow-up to include Doppler studies and ultrasounds. Can you tell me more about fibromuscular dysplasia? Could my Grave’s, the radioactive iodine or the Levoxyl have contributed to this? Thank you. Dear Reader: Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a condition in which one or more arteries develop an abnormal cluster of cells within the artery wall. The cell cluster causes narrowing, which reduces blood flow and may lead to organ damage. It most commonly affects premenopausal women between the ages 14 and 50 but may also be found in young adult men and older women. FMD typically affects the renal arteries that supply the kidneys but may also be found in arteries that lead to the arms, legs, abdomen or brain. About 25 percent of those with FMD will have

more than one narrowed vessel and while there is no cure, there are effective treatments. Symptoms vary depending on which arteries are affected. If the abdominal arteries are involved, you may experience unintended weight loss or pain after eating. If the renal arteries are affected, you may experience neck pain, blurred vision or temporary loss of vision, dizziness, high blood pressure, chronic headaches, tinnitus, chronic kidney failure or ischemic renal atrophy (tissue death). If the peripheral arteries (arms and legs) are affected, you may experience weakness, numbness, cold limbs, discomfort when moving the limbs or changes in skin color or appearance. There is no known cause, but it is believed that several factors may play a role, including hormones, abnormally formed arteries and genetics.

Treatment depends on the severity and location of the FMD as well as a person’s overall health. Medication is typically recommended and include ace inhibitors, calcium channel blockers and beta blockers, which are all medications prescribed for high blood pressure. Many people who are otherwise healthy often undergo surgical repair of the affected artery or arteries and are often advised to take medication following surgery as a precaution. The most frequently recommended procedure is percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA), which essentially uses a balloon catheter to expand the narrowed section(s) of artery. Stents are not typically required to keep the vessel open. The last option is surgical revascularization. This procedure is used when PTRA is not an option, such as when the arteries are severely narrowed.

Toss and Turn No More: How to Maximize Your Sleep (ARA) - A recent Sealy survey shows 67 percent of Americans are only getting six or seven hours of sleep each night not the eight hours medically recommended to perform during the day.

up to 12 hours or more and can prohibit your ability to fall and stay asleep. Anyone who regularly tosses and turns at night should consider removing some or all caffeine from their diet.

Dr. Carol Ash, medical director of Sleep for Life Inc., says outside factors like work and family schedules are the main reasons many people aren’t getting eight hours of sleep at night.

Get plenty of exercise during the day, but preferably not within three hours before you go to sleep to give your body a chance to unwind and cool down.

When eight hours isn’t possible, it’s important to maximize the sleep you do get to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Quality sleep improves concentration, increases memory function and reduces stress, while keeping diabetes and high blood pressure at bay.

Make sure your bedroom is dark, quiet and cool. Close the curtains and, if necessary, use a sleep mask or earplugs. Lower the temperature in your bedroom before going to bed as cooler temperatures can help maximize sleep.

“Although sleep isn’t optional, your sleep environment is, and making sure you’re resting under optimum circumstances puts you in control of your sleep cycle and energy level,” says Ash. “You might not be able to sleep longer, but you can certainly sleep better.”

Establish a bedtime routine. Doing the same thing every evening can provide a soothing effect best for sleeping. For example, you could have a cup of tea, read a book or listen to music.

Ash offers these simple tips for a restful night’s sleep:

Bedtime

Get in the habit of going to bed and waking up at the same time each day. Doing this, along with limiting catnaps, can help set your internal clock so it feels natural to fall asleep at a certain time.

Caffeine

Limit your caffeine intake. The effects of caffeine can last

Exercise

Environment

Routine

Mattress

Choose a comfortable mattress. Update your mattress. Many consumers don’t realize the critical role a mattress plays in a peaceful night’s sleep. Investing in a quality mattress provides both pressure relief and support. Some mattress manufacturers are using state-of-the-art technology to design innovative sleep systems. “We use cutting-edge technology in our product develop-

ment efforts to eliminate tossing and turning, which severely affects your sleep cycle,” says Dr. Alan Letton, chief science officer for Sealy. “It’s our goal to design mattresses, like the new Sealy Posturepedic innerspring line, that help consumers maximize each minute of sleep they can get — even if it is just six hours.” For more information, visit www.sealy.com.

Board to consider budget

STAY AT HOME MISSION

Property tax rate unchanged, school funding tight BY KARISSA MINN

kminn@salisburypost.com

The Rowan County Board of Commissioners will consider adopting the county’s budget for fiscal year 2010-11 at Monday’s meeting. The Board meets at 7 p.m. in the commissioners meeting room on the second floor of the J. Newton Cohen Sr. Rowan County Administration Building, 130 W. Innes St. The proposed General Fund budget is around $128 million. This includes $2 million to pay the debt on a new satellite jail and emergency services communication equipment, paid for by a new quarter-cent sales tax increase. In the budget proposed by County Manager Gary Page and amended by county commissioners, the property tax rate would hold steady at 59.5 cents per $100 of valuation. That means the owner of a home with an assessed value of $100,000 would pay $595 in county property tax. That would be in addition to a city or town’s tax if the home is in a municipality. Page recommended holding per-pupil funding steady for the county’s schools, but an enrollment decline would have resulted in a net decrease for Rowan-Salisbury Schools. At a budget workshop earlier this week, commissioners agreed to add $190,000 to the school system’s allocation of just under $32.1 million, in order to keep funding level with the current year. However, Rowan-Salisbury School System finance director Tara Trexler told commissioners the system needs at least $690,000 to truly maintain county funding due to increases mandated by the state in health insurance and retirement plan contributions for county-funded positions. The school system originally requested a $3.3 million funding increase and offered to split that amount with the county using its own fund balance. Trexler said to cover the $3.1 million gap

side balcony of the church for a moment of reflection. Only 15 people had attended his first gathering of the church, and Shoaf was looking for direction, something that might serve as an underpinning for what he wanted the church to become. He noticed the sidewalk below him led directly across the road to Nazareth Children’s Home, and it immediately became obvious to the new MARK pastor.

services on Sunday morning, with additional services on Wednesday and Sunday nights. For a second summer, the church has organized about 65 kids and 45 adults to work four days at the children’s home, making improvements and repairs throughout the campus. Church members call it their “Stay at Home Mission.” Shoaf applauds church mission trips to other communities, states or countries, but “I can’t seeing driving by this every day to go somewhere else.” “Our first mission is the children’s home,” he said.

Derrick Travel Center saves fuel by going electric BY SHELLEY SMITH

ssmith@salisburypost.com

A six-year truck stop electrification project is now permanently plugged into Rowan County. The truck stop electrification project, involving the Centralina Council of Government (CCOG) and the Rowan County Commissioners, is now in service at Derrick Travel Center, a truck stop on Peeler Road off of exit 71 on Interstate 85. The project is an effort to end truck idling by allowing truck drivers to turn off engines and provide truck cab connection to HVAC, block heater power, outlets for in-cab use, as well as Internet and cable access. The truck stop has 44 parking spaces, with 22 electrifica-

tion towers, and will reduce emissions and noise significantly, as well as fuel costs for the drivers. Each tower has two service modules, which hook onto the window of the truck. Window kits are available at Derrick Travel Center for purchase, and cost between $12 and $25. The center is currently offering the service free of charge, and charges for the services will be minimal once implemented. According to Neal Leonhardt, with CCOG, idling trucks use 0.8 to 1.2 gallons of diesel fuel per hour. Because the Department of Transportation requires truckers to rest for 10 hours for every 11 hours of driving, trucks are usually parked for extended periods of

A man charged with robbing and beating elderly women in southern Rowan in 2006 will spend at least the next 18 years in prison. Milton Howard Jones, 49, who has multiple aliases, pleaded guilty in Rowan County Superior Court on Thursday to two counts of larceny from a person, one count of common law robbery, three counts of felonious hit/run and being a habitual felon. Assistant District Attorney Karen Biernacki said all of the robbery victims were elderly women that he frightened or knocked down and took their purses. JONES One victim, an 81-year-old woman, suffered a broken hip and broken shoulder. Jones was charged with similar crimes in Cabarrus, Iredell, Randolph, Davidson, Forsyth and Guilford counties. Rowan was the only county to prosecute Jones as a habitual felon. Jones was arrested in Salisbury in December 2006 after leading law enforcement officers on a high speed chase from Lexington to Salisbury. He caused at least three collisions along the way before crashing into a fence at Klumac Road. Jones was sentenced to a minimum of 160 months to a maximum of 201 months. The sentence begins at the end of his current prison term, which expires in December 2015. According to the N.C. Department of Corrections website, Jones has used seven versions of names including the last names of Jobes and Melton as well as Jones. He is shown on the DOC website as Melton Jones. He was previously convicted in Iredell, Cabarrus and Guilford counties on similar common law robbery charges.

that will remain if the $190,000 allocation stands, the system may have to eliminate 117 positions and make other cuts. Any increase to RowanSalisbury schools would mean the county must also increase funding to Kannapolis City Schools and charter schools. The budget also includes a $150,000 increase to Rowan-Cabarrus Community College due to an increase in enrollment, as well as $450,000 to fix two roofs at the college. The proposed funding is a fraction of the nearly $3.9 million in requests from RCCC for capital projects school officials call urgent needs. Eighteen county jobs, most of which are currently vacant, would be eliminated under the proposed budget. The positions include a building inspector, four deputies, one environmental health specialist and nine part-time library positions. Commissioners decided not to eliminate the county’s only vehicle mechanic position. The county also would privatize its airport maintenance after a transition period this summer, eliminating two airport mechanic positions. Page said two private companies already are interested in providing maintenance at the airport, and they could hire at least one of Rowan County’s mechanics. The county received 28 requests for new positions, but only four would be granted — one in the health department to be funded by state grant money, two in child protective services and a new director of building inspections position. County employees will receive no cost-of-living adjustments or merit pay raises. They also would see an increase in their insurance plan deductible and employee family premiums.

benefits would not be reduced. The county’s estimated tax base for the next fiscal year has declined 0.4 percent. Also, the collection rate has fallen from 97 percent to 95 percent over the past three years. Sales tax collections have fallen more than 10 percent compared to three years ago. Building permits are estimated to generate $400,000, which is $600,000 less than collected in the 2007-08 budget. Interest on investments has fallen to 1 percent. In 2007 and 2008, interest income was about 5 percent of the investment portfolio. Because the county normally invests the money it receives in early taxes, Page recommended decreasing the early tax discount from 1.5 to 1 percent in July and from 1 percent to 0.5 percent in August. Commissioners rejected the change as a tax increase, reducing projected revenues by $240,000. Page told commissioners that in total, revenues dropped $3 million this year and he cut the budget $1 million. If revenues did not pick up and commissioners kept the additional $2 million in spending, he said, either taxes would have to be increased or significant cuts would have to be made in the 2011-12 fiscal year. Ten additional county positions would have to be cut. Employees would have to take furlough days or a salary cut, co-pays on their health insurance would rise and contributions to their retirement plans would fall. Funding to most nonprofit groups would have to be cut 50 percent. County library and park hours would have to be cut as well. In total, these cuts would add up to about $1.7 million in savings. The county is avoiding these measures in the 2010-11 fiscal year by dipping into its fund balance for about $1.5 million. Page warned against relying on the fund balance in the future, though, when the county will be borrowing money for its new jail annex and radio system. Also at Monday’s meet-

tems and diesel emissions, and proximities to certain areas of those emissions.” Leonhardt said Derrick Travel Center was chosen because the center had a willing owner, a large enough lot and a close proximity to a major interstate. “You’d be surprised how many truck stops in our area were not eligible,” he said. The $760,000 project is a combination of grants and donations. In 2004, CCOG and Rowan County received a $100,000 EPA Smartway grant to begin the project, and also received $400,000 in Congestion Mitigation for Air Quality (CMAQ) funding. CabAire, LLC, the vendor that installed the electrification service towers, contributed $260,000 for the project. Former Commissioner Leda Belk helped Rowan County secure the federal grants when the program became available in 2004. There are 133 truck stop electrification locations in the nation, with Rowan’s making the third in North Carolina. For more information on CabAire, LLC, visit www.controlmod.com/cabaire/.

time with the engines running. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that in one year, the total fuel-cost savings (per parking space) of idling versus not running the engine is more than $3,000. The facilities were revealed Friday morning, with many local officials and representatives with CCOG at Derrick Travel Center welcoming the project. “Air quality is one of the most vital issues we face in this region,” said Bob Misenheimer, Kannapolis Mayor and CCOG Board chairman. “This project is one of the best projects we could possibly do. “I am extremely glad to see the cities and counties making a difference.” County Commissioner Raymond Coltrain expressed his eagerness for the project, noting that everyone’s decisions today will greatly affect future generations. “This is about the air that we breathe and most impor-

Commissioner Jon Barber noted the proximity of the truck stop to Southeast Middle School. “If this station here is going to improve air quality near the schools, and improve air quality for those students, that’s a great benefit,” he said. “I think this is outstanding.” Founding Director of the Catawba Center for Environment Dr. John Wear said in order to solve the air quality issues in our region, more projects such as the truck stop electrification need to be considered. “Cumulatively, how we do things like this, allowing people to cut their engines off at night and have all these amenities, to ways we create businesses and homes more efficiently, it is all cumulatively helping reduce our fossil fuel use and moving us to cleaner air and less carbon emissions, he said. “Any time you reduce the diesel and automobile emissions near the schools, that’s very important. “More and more we’re seeing studies done telling us we need to be making considerations in terms of school sys-

tantly the air we leave behind for our kids and grandkids,” he said. Al Sharp, executive director of CCOG, reflected on a trip he and others made last winter to the truck stop one night, “to listen to all the trucks idling,” he said. He noted the sights, smells and sounds, and looked forward to a better future with less emissions and better air quality. “What you see now is the wave of the future,” he said. “What’s significant is that what we do this morning is going to have impacts on us this afternoon.” Sharp called truck stop electrification a “win-win.” “It gives them (drivers) a better environment in which to provide their mandatory rest,” he said. “It gives income for the stops. And it improves air quality in our region.” Gary Cotnoir, with CabAire, demonstrated the product, which he says will be a blessing for truck drivers. “When I did the installation, trucks just ran and ran and ran,” he said. “I can’t imagine the noise trying to sleep.”

TRACY RATLIFF / CATAWBA COLLEGE

Nearly 300 young women from across the state gathered at Catawba College this week for the 71st Tar Heel Girls State convention. North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall met with the group before speaking in Keppel Auditorium

71st Tar Heel Girls State Young women from across the state gather to learn about government BY SUSAN SHINN

Catawba College News Service

Imagine a weeklong discussion of government including parliamentary procedure. Pretty dull, huh? Now throw in 290 screaming young women, all cheering enthusiastically for their own “cities.” Welcome to the 71st Tar Heel Girls State convention at Catawba College. Sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary, Girls State introduces rising high school seniors to all aspects BRADWAY of government, from the duties of a city manager to introducing a bill. It’s an intense experience, say the local young ladies who attended the session this week. “It’s really hardcore,” Courtney Bradway of Rockwell said Thursday. “The first two days were really hard. It’s gotten a lot better. It was overwhelming.” The 15 local girls attending all agree it’s a good experience for their college resumés. Margaret Kaufman of Salisbury is interested in political science and campaigns — the whole election process. The convention is heavy on parliamentary procedure, the girls say. “We speak it every day,” said Carol Brown of Rockwell. “It’s very in-depth. They don’t let anything MURPHY slide.” Anita Overstreet of Salisbury said she liked the fact that “anybody can get up in front of a group and speak, whether they have experience or not.” Marlee Murphy of Salisbury said that the self-nomination process helped increase self-esteem. “You have to have the self-confidence to nominate yourself,” Brown said. “Everybody has the exact same qualifications,” Overstreet added. It’s a challenge to find something unique, to set yourself apart from other candidates, said Raven Corbett of Rockwell.

Anita Overstreet and Rena Ogle, both of Salisbury, are all smiles during the 71st Tar Heel Girls State at Catawba College. Nearly 300 young women from across the state participated. Some girls have been legislative pages; others have had family members who participated in Girls State and knew what to expect. The girls marveled at one participant who had thousands of hours of community service. “I don’t know when she sleeps,” said Jenna Bryan of Salisbury. On Thursday, precinct and city elections had been completed, with state elections yet to come. Also on that day, 10 girls were choPERRY sen as nominees for Girls Nation, to be held in Washington, D.C. in July. Two finalists will be announced Saturday morning at the close of the event. Kierra Perry of Salisbury came to Girls State because of future career aspirations. She either wants to study social work or crime scene investigation. “Any job I want has to do with government,” she said.

The week was not without its lighter moments. Although curfew was midnight, the girls stayed up much, much later. “I had a dance party on my birthday,” said Brandi Jones of Lexington, who turned 17 on Tuesday. “We’ve still got a bunch of cake.” Secretary of State Elaine Marshall could relate. The girls clustered around Marshall before she spoke in Keppel Auditorium. A couple of years ago, she said, she stayed up all night, watching a bill make its way through the legislature, afraid it would be killed. “I didn’t think I had it in me,” she told the group, “but I did.” Other local girls attending Girls State this week included: Krystal Gilmore, Spencer; April Honeycutt, Mount Ulla; Amanda Matlock, Woodleaf; Abby Kepley, Granite Quarry; Rena Ogle, Salisbury; and Katelyn Shuping, Salisbury. Freelance writer Susan Shinn is a full-time student at Catawba College.

Nearly 300 young women spent the week participating in the 71st Tar Heel Girls State at Catawba College. They learned about parliamentary procedure and cheered for their ‘cities.’

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s unemployment rate improved in May for the third straight month, this time to 10.3 percent, but the boost came mostly from a gain in government hiring, the state Employment Security Commission said Friday. The unemployment rate fell from 10.8 percent in April. The national unemployment rate also had fallen, from 9.9 percent in April to 9.7 percent in May. North Carolina’s unemployment rate had been as bad as 11.2 percent in February, the worst since the current calculation method started in 1976. The number of people working increased by 14,722 and the number on the unemployment rolls decreased by almost 20,800 workers. Though the jobless rate has been falling, government was responsible for much of the improvement, adding 16,100 workers, while manufacturing lost 2,900 jobs and leisure and hospitality services shed 2,700 positions. John Connaughton, an economic forecaster at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, said the fact that government hiring was responsible for the state’s improved unemployment rate means the figure could readily rise again in a few months. The lower unemployment rate was “a result of the census workers being hired and they’ll be gone in three months,” Connaughton said. “The rest of the private-sector economy is negative and that’s very worrisome.” Since the recession began in December 2007, North Carolina has lost 251,900 nonfarm jobs, with manufacturing losing 103,400 of them. The state data showed manufacturers are pushing their employees to work longer hours. That increases the pressure for factories to speed hiring. But Connaughton said companies have learned to do more with fewer workers, so he doesn’t expect a broad increase in hiring soon. “They’re not going to go through the painful process of adding workers with the prospect of laying them off in six months or a year,” he said. “They’re still not convinced that we’ve made a big turnaround yet.”

2 charged in connection with vandalism spree Two 20-year-olds have been charged with 13 counts of injury to personal property after authorities say they took a baseball bat to mailboxes and seven cars in a nighttime spree that ended with a traffic stop. The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Corey Levi Duran, 110 Lauren Glenn Drive, China Grove, and William DURAN Nathaniel York, 237 Strawberry Lane. They remain in the Rowan County Detention Center under $7,500 bond each. York is also charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Capt. John Sifford said the first call came around 3 a.m. Wednesday when a resident of Maple Ridge Road reported his mailbox had been smashed. He described the vehicle as a dark colored SUV. As the deputy was taking the report, a neighbor stopped by to report his mailbox YORK had been smashed by someone in a darkcolored SUV. And he followed the vehicle until he lost it. Another caller advised their mailbox had been smashed in the Grace Church Road area. Deputy Mike Dixon spotted an SUV matching the description at the intersection of Shue and Grace Church roads. Dixon pulled over the vehicle driven by York with Duran as a passenger. Sifford said Dixon found a baseball bat in the vehicle, along with marijuana. And then the flood of 911 calls started with reports of more damaged mailboxes and cars with windshields and windows broken out.

Topless dancers face exposure charges CHARLOTTE (AP) — Authorities have arrested six women and are searching for 10 others as part of an investigation of indecent exposure at strip clubs that one club owner said was a waste of law enforcement resources. The Charlotte Observer reported Friday that Alcohol Beverage Control officials said the topless dancers are charged with violating a state law that prohibits them from performing nude. The arrests are part of a six-month undercover investigation into eight adult-entertainment clubs in Charlotte. Most of the clubs involved are operated by M.A.L. entertainment, a company owned by Charlotte businessman David “Slim” Baucom.

“They know that they’re not allowed to expose themselves and they did,” said Michael Crowley of Mecklenburg’s ABC commission. “You’re not allowed to remove your bottom.” Crowley said the women removed all of their clothes during table dances on the main floor and in semi-private areas, roped off for customers who pay extra for special dances. Agents said Baucom cooperated with authorities and provided the real names of some of his dancers. Chris Fall, owner of the Paper Doll Lounge, said the investigation is a waste of taxpayer money, particularly in tight financial times. Authorities said an ABC agent and a

Pineville police officer conducted the investigation. “The government, they’re bad on money and they’re coming after us,” Fall said. “Paying (agents) to go to strip clubs ... and have a good time.” The clubs could face disciplinary action by the state ABC commission, which controls licensing for businesses that sell alcohol. Crowley compared the operation to other ABC stings, in which the commission sends minors into gas stations and grocery stores to try and buy alcohol and cigarettes. “We want to make sure that these adult entertainment establishments are following the law,” Crowley said. “That’s our job.”

CRIME ROUNDUP Woman wanted for driving off with lawn mower When three women showed up at a farm equipment company wanting to buy a Father’s Day present, they didn’t need any help from salesmen. Christine Gantt knew exactly what GANTT she wanted — a Husqvarna lawnmower with a 54-inch deck. And she also wanted a utility trailer for dad to haul the mower. On June 9, Gantt, accompanied by two other women, pulled off from Faith Farm Equipment, 585 W. Ritchie Road, with the mower on the trailer hooked to a blue Jeep Cherokee. She wrote a check for $4,281.42 to pay for dad’s present. The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office became involved on June 16 when the check failed to clear. Capt. John Sifford of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said warrants have been issued for Gantt, who previously lived with her grandfather at 4344 Camden Ave., Kannapolis. She is charged with two counts of obtaining property by false pretense. She has been entered in the national crime crime database as wanted. Sifford said it appears she may be in Spartanburg, S.C. The Jeep Cherokee had a Spartanburg dealership logo and displayed a 30-day tag. Sifford said Cabarrus Sheriff’s Office deputies and Rowan Deputy D.A. Whitley interviewed Gantt’s grandfather. He made clear he didn’t approve of what she was doing, but said she stopped by his house on June 9 in the Jeep Cherokee, pulling a trailer with a lawnmower. He told deputies that when

he asked what was going on, his granddaughter said, “We got to go.” He also told deputies that Bank of America had sent a notice to his house concerning her accounts. Sifford said the bank indicated Gantt had opened several checking accounts, deposited money, withdrew the money and closed the accounts after a short period. Sifford said officers haven’t determined where Gantt’s father lives, but he doesn’t expect he’ll be getting a new mower for Father’s Day. And deputies haven’t been able to identify the two other women involved in the incident. The 20-year-old Gantt is a registered sex offender for a prior conviction of taking indecent liberties with a minor.

Traffic stop nets marijuana A traffic stop Thursday night on Interstate 85 netted more than 88 grams of marijuana. Salisbury Police Officer M.A. Hunter stopped a 2000 Mercedes on I-85 at the city limits for speeding. Chief Rory Collins said Hunter asked SEAN for and received permission to search the vehicle. He found 12 bags of marijuana inside the console. The 88.3 grams of marijuana had a street value of $880. Christopher Shaune Sean, 27, 1215 Heather Mist Ave., Charlotte, was charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia — a set of weighing scales. Sean was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center with bond set at $3,500.

Man charged with killing his mother CHARLOTTE (AP) — A North Carolina man has been arrested and charged with shooting and killing his mother during an argument. Multiple media outlets reported 63-year-old Ada Adams of Charlotte was shot late Thursday morning. Adams was taken to Carolinas Medical Center, where she died. Police have charged her son, 32-year-old John Lee Adams, Jr., with murder. Investigators say the shooting came during an ongoing custody dispute over John Adams’ son. Police say the youngster called police to say his father had shot the boy’s grandmother. Officers say they found a gun at the scene. It was unclear if John Adams had an attorney.

Businessman says he also donated through kids RALEIGH (AP) — A North Carolina businessman says no one ever instructed him to get around state campaign finance laws by funneling money to his workers to make political contributions. Atlantic Corp. owner Rusty Carter made the statement in an affidavit released Friday by the State Board of Elections. He was fined and got probation in state court last month for accepting responsibility for $176,000 in illegal donations to the campaigns of Gov. Beverly Perdue and two state senators. Carter’s affidavit said his company also gave $267,000 to federal and state candidates by paying or reimbursing employees who made the donations. He also said his children donated $73,000 using money he gave them. State law bans corporate campaign contributions and using someone else’s money for a donation.

Dam fails, drains centerpiece lake in Hope Mills HOPE MILLS (AP) — Officials are trying to determine why a dam failed in a North Carolina town, draining its centerpiece lake. The Fayetteville Observer reported Hope Mills Lake drained Thursday after officials began investigating why it had turbid water, which was cloudy and may have soil in it. The town had gotten permission last year to put water in the lake again after an 80-year-old earthen dam had collapsed in 2003. The town built a new dam and spillway before collecting water in the lake again. Inspectors had released water Wednesday to investigate the turbid water. The water picked up speed and the lake disappeared. Two holes were visible on the lake side of the dam. State and local officials and private engineers spent much of Thursday inspecting the dam and planned to review the information Friday.

Longtime legislator Bertha ‘B’ Holt dies BURLINGTON (AP) — A longtime legislator known for her work to get North Carolina to repeal a law that said husbands could not rape their wives has died at the age of 93. Bertha “B” Holt died Friday morning at her home. Jefferson Holt of Chapel Hill says his mother had suffered a stroke Sunday. The Burlington lawmaker was in the state House of Representatives from 1975 to 1994. She led the effort to change the state’s marital rape law, which had said that husbands couldn’t be charged with raping their wives. The law was amended in the 198788 session and was taken off the books in 1993. Other survivors include a daughter, Harriet Whitley of Burlington, and another son, Merrill, of San Francisco. Her husband, Clary Holt, died in 2003. Rich & Thompson Funeral & Cremation Services is handling the arrangements.

SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 2010 • 5A

Ask Amy: Pooped-out neighbors not in mood to party Dear Amy: There is a home in our neighborhood that sat empty for several years due to a foreclosure. New buyers purchased the property and began extensive renovations. Last month, postcards were sent to many of us in the neighborhood. The postcard is a photo of the home’s exterior with a caption that reads, “We ASK know you’re curiAMY ous.” The text on the back states that food and beverages will be served at the home, and stresses that everyone should “come see what we’ve done with the house.” Word through the grapevine is that only a handful of people even bothered to RSVP. I suspect these newcomers are simply clueless, so for other readers who may have been fortunate enough to invest in a fixer-upper, here are some things to keep in mind:

Your house dragged down the value of ours over those long months. It’s nice that you can afford all new things for your home. We’d like to do some of those renovations ourselves, but we either have no equity or had our equity line of credit reduced. Some of us were recently laid off and are struggling just to make mortgage payments. Please excuse us for not wanting to come over to be escorted around the newly manicured grounds. We don’t begrudge what you have. We’re just not eager to have our collective noses rubbed in it. — Suburban Party Pooper Dear Pooper: Well, that’s one way to look at it. Another way is to realize that the people who bought the house weren’t the ones who dragged down the value along the street — they’re not the problem but a possible solution. They are also possibly clueless and grasping strivers who will soon be educated on the depths of

suburban Schadenfreude and envy. Despite what you say, it’s obvious that you do begrudge your neighbors. I agree that their effort is clunky and somewhat insensitive, but your response is unkind. Dear Amy: My wife and I recently returned from a 1,700-mile driving vacation. We traveled dirt roads, back roads, paved roads and freeways. One constant through the trip was that female drivers follow too closely! More than 20 times I pulled off the road to let a female driver pass me because I was afraid of a rear-end accident. Not one time was it a man driving. I am convinced that women do not understand the physics, the dynamics or the technologies related to automobile operations and all the things that can go wrong to a vehicle while driving. Deer, an accident ahead, a sudden stop or a look away — and there is no time left to react. My wife drove for 50 miles, and

I was afraid for my life. I constantly asked her to slow down or give the car ahead more room. After 50 years of marriage, this is the only thing we argue about. Why won’t she change? She is quite intelligent in most other matters. I know this sounds chauvinistic (I also have three daughters), but I don’t mean to be. I need your help. — Worried Dear Worried: There is no question that following too closely to the vehicle in front of you doesn’t leave a driver enough time to react, but in terms of your genderbased observations, national highway accident statistics show that male drivers are more than twice as likely to die in an auto crash than female drivers. Women are catching up, however — their fatality rate is rising, while that of men is falling. You and your wife could both benefit from taking a safe driving course. You can check AARP.org for details.

get in your response to “Jessica,” who wanted to restrict her children’s official grandparents only to the four biological ones. I am a stepmother of three. My eldest recently married and thereupon became a stepmother herself to a 5-year-old. This little girl has a total of eight loving, doting grandparents! What could possibly be wrong with that? Of course, we may be unusual. After all, when my husband and I were married, the priest who officiated was his ex-wife (we’re Episcopalian). Rock on, Amy! — “Stepping” Happily Dear Stepping: You obviously are rocking on.

Crowds jam Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter opening ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Thousands of people waited in line for hours Friday to get into The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando on its opening day, as Daniel Radcliffe and other stars from the movie greeted fans at the minipark. Aerial photos showed thousands of people in a snaking line waiting to enter. On Twitter and other forums, observers joked that the park had become “Harry Potter and the Endless Line.” Universal Orlando spokesman Tom Schroder said the park does not divulge attendance figures, but he said 5,000 people were waiting to get in before the park even opened Friday morning. Schroder said that despite the large numbers of fans, “it looks as if we will be able to accommodate everyone who

wants to experience The Wizarding World of Harry Potter within our regular hours.” The park normally closes at 10 p.m. The park was admitting guests to the 20-acre Wizarding World area in waves, so it did not appear overcrowded from the inside. But the line to enter the Wizarding World snaked all the way through Universal’s Islands of Adventure park, where the Harry Potter area is located. “It’s absolutely jampacked,” said Robert Niles, editor of ThemeParkInsider.com, in a phone interview, adding, “The number of people here for this is clearly in the tens of thousands. These are passionate fans.” The Wizarding World brings the popular Harry Potter books and movies to life with rides, shops and detailed reproductions of the

fictitious village of Hogsmeade, the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the steambelching Hogwarts Express train. Radcliffe, who plays the boy wizard in the movie series, was joined at the opening by Warwick Davis (who plays Filius Flitwick), Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Michael Gambon (Albus Dumbledore). “What Universal Orlando has done with Harry Potter is really, really fantastic,” Radcliffe said at the opening ceremony. “We’re all kind of very grateful that the next ASSOCIATED PRESS part of the Harry Potter Harry Potter fans cheer and take pictures during the official grand opening at the Wizarding legacy has been so well-done World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando on Friday in Orlando, Fla. and so well-made.”

DARTS AND LAURELS

A class act from 1932 Laurels to the J.C. Price High School building, which is Salisbury’s newest addition to the National Register of Historic Places. The stately old school’s designation for national recognition will be a highlight of this weekend’s gathering here of Price’s national alumni association. The designation recognizes the significance of the building, which was built in 1932 at 1300 W. Bank St. as the first (and only) public school building in Salisbury erected solely for use as a high school by black students. It also affirms Price High’s place in the social and cultural history of Salisbury. Congratulations to the Price alumni, local preservationists and others who have devoted years of work to documenting Price’s rich history and advocating its inclusion on the National Register. For those interested in further exploration of the school’s history, check out the exhibit of Price High School photographs, “Cherishing the Black and Red,” currently on display at the main library on West Fisher Street. • • • Dart to the setback for redevelopment of another Salisbury landmark — the old Empire Hotel on South Main Street. Given the economic climate, it’s not surprising that Empire Properties decided it wasn’t the right time to move ahead with the project, which would have transformed the 1855 structure into a multiuse complex that would include a restaurant and retail space, as well as a hotel. The recession has delayed or derailed projects around the country. While Empire’s pullout is disappointing, however, it isn’t the end of the story. The Raleigh-based development firm left the door open to reconsider its involvement when things improve, and Downtown Salisbury Inc., which purchased the building in 2007, is talking with other developers. • • • Laurels to completion of the truck-stop electrification project at Derrick Travel Plaza. Truck-stop electrification enables long-haul drivers to connect their auxiliary systems into the power grid, rather than having to leave their engines idling for long periods. How significant is the pollution from idling trucks? Trucks in the United States burn about 11 billion gallons of diesel fuel annually while idling, translating into about 11 million tons of carbon dioxide, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. The Centralina Council of Governments was the key agency in obtaining approximately $500,000 in federal funding to launch the project in 2004. Now, the county officials appear ready to pull the plug on CCOG.

A table full of memories T

he new table is not so new anymore. But it will always be newer than the old table, which is, like me, pretty old. And getting older every day. I remember when the old table was new.

We ordered it from North Carolina, my home state, and had it shipped to California, where he was a native, and I was a homesick transplant. I loved it at first sight. Not just because we both hailed from the same mountains, though I will say, that helped. It was a trestle table, long and thin — much like I was in those days. Made of soft knotty pine, SHARON it was stained a rich, dark walRANDALL nut, with a semi-glossy finish. It could comfortably seat eight average-size adults for a party. Or two adults, two booster seats and a highchair for tuna casserole. Or five basketball players and their coach for a spaghetti dinner, with folding tables for other players who weren’t as quick to grab a seat. My three children left their mark on that table. Literally. You can still see the imprints of words and numbers they wrote while doing homework, all the scratches and nicks and dents and dings from years of playing board games or building science projects or blowing out birthday candles or chasing runaway peas around their plates. If you don’t think peas can scratch a table, try putting them in the hands of a 3-year-old who is learning to use a fork. It served us well, that table. My husband was forever adding another layer of varnish. He added the last not long before he died. The kids were nearly grown. It might never need another coat, he said. If it did, he’d strip it and start fresh. That was another lifetime, years ago. And the finish is still holding strong. When I remarried and moved with my new husband to Las Vegas, the old table moved with us and looked right at home in our new

dining room. For the kitchen, we bought a new table, a farmhouse butcher block, sturdy and thick — much like I am these days. It’s made of solid oak, a light, natural color with a soft handrubbed finish. Gradually, it has become the center of our home — the place where we cook and eat most of our meals, where we open mail and pay bills and address birthday cards to family and friends we left in California. When our children (his two, my three and their others) come to visit, we gather around the new table to eat and drink and talk and laugh and make new memories for years to come. But we try to have dinner in the dining room at least once while they are here, so the old table won’t feel left out. Life is such a mixture of old and new, such a blending of the present and the past. This morning, I coated both tables with lemon oil and let it soak in a bit. Then I used rags to work the oil into the wood. I started with the old table, covering its dents and dings, taking care not to miss an inch. When I saw my face reflected on its surface, I smiled. I, too, have my share of dents and dings. Then I wiped down the new table and noticed it has a few scratches, a few signs of wear. As well it should. Tables are meant to be used just as lives are meant to be lived. A few dents and dings, a few lines and wrinkles just add character. Pine and oak are different by nature. One is like youth, soft and impressionable. The other is like age, resilient and strong. But a funny thing happens when I close my eyes and trail my fingers along the surface of the tables. I can’t tell where one stops and the other begins. They blend seamlessly into one life. • • • Sharon Randall writes this column for Scripps Howard News Service.

It’s absurd to suggest Hall isn’t dedicated to education Over the past week, several members of the school system have horribly misrepresented the questions asked by my mother, Commissioner Tina Hall, at last Monday’s commission meeting. There have also been letters to the editor alleging that my mother was out of line, and that she is trying to make an “attack” against school children. I would like to address both of these claims. Tina Hall has been scrutinized for asking questions about how the school system spends its money. Not only is it her right as a commissioner, it is her duty to ensure that tax dollars go straight to the classroom to help our teachers and students. School Board member Karen Carpenter became offended when my mother implied funds had been misused by the school system. I share my mother’s belief that during these economic times, every possible dollar allocated to the schools should be spent on textbooks, supplies, and teachers … not bottomless travel expenses for the School Board and central office leadership. Her opinions may make her less popular among a certain crowd, but I’m proud of her for standing up for the students by asking the hard questions. For anyone to claim that Tina Hall would EVER want to take one cent away from school children is ridiculous. Her entire career as an educator was dedicated to helping children. She fought for students at my high school to get higher education through AP classes and continues to push the school system for stronger test scores and better graduation rates. She does it because she wants each and every student in Rowan County to reach their highest potential. I strongly urge all parents, teachers and citizens to go out and vote Tina Hall for county commissioner on Tuesday. — Kathryn Hall Mt. Ulla

Actions a turnoff for voters I have been following the antics of Tina Hall in the Post since she was elected to the Board of County Commissioners. Time and again, it seems she continues to bring a hostile, adversarial attitude to board meetings. I’ve come to the conclusion that her seemingly innocent questions are nothing more than not so subtle attempts to antagonize, attack and provoke. (Yes, she has the right to question expenses, but to dredge up one incurred two

Her apparent nasty streak is better suited to the brand of politics practiced there. I for one will vote for Chad Mitchell in the runoff and plan to support Jon Barber in the general election. — D.C. Sink Rockwell

Support Chad Mitchell All Republican and unaffiliated citizens of Rowan County who voted in the May primary, please vote by June 22 for Chad Mitchell. Chad Mitchell has eight years of experience dealing with county government issues, including budgets, school expansion, job recruitment and business interests while keeping our taxes low and manageable. He opposed Salisbury’s annexation of the N.C. 150 corridor. This is a candidate who chooses his battles wisely and accomplishes the goals of county government without ever attacking county citizens, employees or business interests. Tina Hall dislikes everything in Rowan County. She continues to conduct business in the same manner she did as principal at Landis Elementary (i.e., she belittles individuals, disregards business interests and forces her agenda on everyone. She couldn’t care less about the education of your children, grandchildren and the great-grandchildren of this county. She is a RINO (Republican in Name Only). Chad Mitchell is a lifelong conservative Republican and soundly defeated Tina Hall in the May 5 primary. This county and the Republican Party need Chad Mitchell on the November ballot! Move this county forward; vote Chad Mitchell in the June 22 runoff. — Chris Cohen

aleigh — It is often said that children promise us the hope of tomorrow. But to deliver on that promise, children need the support of a community of caring and engaged adults- including their dads. There are all sorts of fathers — biological, non-custodial, foster and adoptive, stepfathers, grandfathers and godfathers. What they share in common is a unique opportunity and important responsibility to help the children in their ALLEN lives grow into healthy and productive adults. This Father’s Day, let us celebrate and validate the important role of fathers in promoting the well-being of our children and our society at large. Fathers make a brighter future possible by their daily involvement and commitment in children’s lives. Involved dads contribute volumes to the well being of their children. Studies show that active fathers lower the chance for school failure, early sexual activity, juvenile delinquency and adult criminality among youth. Even so, the value of the male parent presence is frequently hidden by one-dimensional labels like breadwinner, disciplinarian and joint custodian. But dads are much more than this. They help children learn important life skills. They provide children with emotional support, guidance and discipline. They are teachers and role models, and research indicates that while men and women often differ in their parenting styles, exposure to both is healthy for children. Dads will not be successful, however, without community and public support. We do a good job at recognizing motherhood as vital to the institution of parenthood, but far too often we leave fathers outside of this critical equation. Dads as well as moms need to be able to take advantage of personal support networks that encourage and enable their responsibilities as nurturing parents. If we do not make fatherhood a first concern, then 1 in 4 children will continue to live without dad’s crucial contribution to their development and well- being. This Father’s Day, make a commitment to elevate fatherhood to a position of honor and priority in your local neighborhood. Praise a dad for his efforts at the hardest job one could ever do. Recognize the good things dad is doing — and then help him to do the things he wants to do better. Create a group in your church or community that welcomes and sustains fathers. Encourage them to help with homework and eat meals with their children. Many studies confirm that higher levels of father involvement in these types of activities are associated with fewer behavioral problems, higher levels of sociability, and a high level of school performance among children and adolescents. A healthy community celebrates the man who puts his children first. We will see great things when we expect great things — the fruits of fatherhood are far and wide. Support and honor our dads this Father’s Day and beyond. It is one of the best things we can do for our selves, our children, and our communities. • • • Rosemarie “Rosie” Allen is president/CEO of Prevent Child Abuse N.C.

Embattled BP CEO Hayward removed from oil spill oversight; Stats show slow pace of claims process Bill to spare doctors from Medicare cuts doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pass in time WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; After a week of partisan wrangling, the Senate on Friday passed legislation to spare doctors a 21 percent cut in Medicare payments looming for months. But the lastditch effort came too late. Moments after the Senate acted, Medicare announced it would begin processing claims it has already received for June at the lower rate. The reason: the House cannot act on the fix until next week. That means doctors, nurse practitioners, physical therapists and other providers who bill under Medicareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physician fee schedule will have to resubmit their claims if they want to be made whole, with added paperwork costs both for the providers and for taxpayers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Congress is playing Russian roulette with seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; health care,â&#x20AC;?

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Will the Gulf oil leak cam engulf President Barack Obama? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly impossible to avoid the live video of the coal-gray oil gushing from BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well a mile below the Gulf of Mexicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface. According to an Associated Press-GfK Poll this week, 88 percent of the public has viewed it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a picture so sharp that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tantalizingly easy to wonder why someone doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just stuff a rag into the ruptured pipe. The video is a daily reminder that two months after the oil rig explosion that killed 11 and caused the massive leak and resulting environmental and economic damage, BP still hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plugged the well. The APGfK Poll shows that so far people are more upset with BP than Obama: 83 percent disapprove of how the British-based oil company is handling the disaster, compared with 52 percent unhappy with the president. It was the White House and Democratic lawmakers who originally pressed BP to make the videos available. Yet if the crude continues to flow, the images could morph into a vivid symbol of the intractable problems Obama has yet to solve to the satisfaction of a demanding public â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not just the Gulfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental disaster, but the limp economy and feeble job market, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly what they want is for us to focus on what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done right,â&#x20AC;? Paul Freedman, who teaches about public opinion, media and politics at the University of Virginia, said of the White House. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And to the extent that thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a problem, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure it helps them,â&#x20AC;? he said of the video. Democrats and environmental advocates say the relentless pictures are helpful politically because they highlight a problem that people know was caused by an oil company, not the president. They also hope the images â&#x20AC;&#x201D; plus pictures of oilcovered birds and beaches â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will win greater public acceptance of cleaner energy sources. Obama called for such a transition in an Oval Office speech Tuesday.

BAGHDAD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An alQaida-linked insurgent shot and killed his own father as he slept in his bed Friday for refusing to quit his job as an Iraqi interpreter for the U.S. military, police said, a rare deadly attack on a close family member over allegations of collaborating with the enemy. The attack happened on a particularly bloody day in Iraq, with at least 27 people killed nationwide in bombings and ambushes largely targeting the houses of government officials, Iraqi security forces and those seen as allied with them. Hameed al-Daraji, 50, worked as a contractor and translator for the U.S. military for seven years since shortly after the U.S.-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003. He was shot in the chest about 3 a.m. while sleeping in his house in Samarra, a former insurgent stronghold 60 miles (95 kilometers) north of Baghdad, police Lt. Emad Muhsin said. Authorities arrested the son and his cousin, saying the young men apparently were trying to prove their loyalty

after rejoining the insurgency. Police were also looking for another son who allegedly took part in the attack.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; BP removed Chief Executive Tony Hayward from day-to-day oversight of the Gulf oil spill crisis a day after he was pummeled by lawmakers in an appearance on Capitol Hill, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chairman said Friday. Carl-Henric Svanberg told Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sky News television that Hayward â&#x20AC;&#x153;is now handing over the operations, the daily operations to (BP Managing Director) Bob Dudley,â&#x20AC;? overshadowing news that after many setbacks BP was finally making real progress in siponing and burning off oil from the underwater gusher. Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen announced earlier Friday that a newly expanded containment system is capturing or incinerating more than 1 million gallons of oil daily, the first time it has approached its peak capacity. And the system will soon grow. By late June, the oil giant hopes it can keep nearly 90 percent of the flow from hitting the ocean. Allen also said the Coast Guard is ramping up efforts to capture the crude closer to shore with the help of private boats. As of Friday morning, between 65 million and 121.6 million gallons of oil have gushed into the Gulf of Mexico, based on federal daily flow rate estimates. The optimistic news about the containment plan was tempered by Haywardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s removal, which follows a June 4 announcement by BP that Dudley, and American oil executive, would lead the long-term response to the oil spill once the leak had been stopped. Svanbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement appeared to accelerate that timeline, as millions of gallons of crude continue to gush into the Gulf.

Last year, the stay-athome mission relied on kid power, adult volunteers and donations of money and materials to make about $37,000 worth of improvements. This year, the church is shooting for a $45,000 makeover. The work includes tearing up old sidewalks and pouring new ones, building a picnic shelter, painting resident cottages and landscaping around them. The kids treat it like a mission where they leave the comforts of home behind. Cell phones and iPods aren’t allowed. They are required to wear long pants. Their work day runs from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with breaks for lunch and snacks. The evening includes showers, dinner, a church service and free time for fellowship. The boys sleep overnight at Nazareth’s Carl Lyerly Activity Center, making pallets on the gymnasium floor out of air mattresses or sleeping bags. The girls bivouac at the church. The East Rowan YMCA provides a place for the mission kids to take showers after their sweaty days. The landscaping and painting crews are the most labor intensive, requiring up to 30 kids each. The landscapers have been divided into two teams: the Bush Boogers and the Mulch Monsters. Around several of the cottages, old bushes are coming out and new bushes are replacing them. The crews also are shoveling and spreading about a tractor-trailer load of mulch. On Wednesday, the first day of the mission, the teams did most of their work around the expansive Leonard Cottage. “We’ve got three times this much to do,” Shoaf said. The paint crews’ work will include the scraping and painting of 10 bedrooms, with adults coming

in after 5 p.m. to serve as a second shift. The mission continues through Saturday morning. The kids come mostly from Nazareth Community Church, Faith Baptist Church and the children’s home itself. Michael Hess, an 11year-old resident at Nazareth, said he likes the work because it helps his home. “And you’re making it look better than it was and taking time out of your life to help others,” he said. Kaitlynn Fleming, 17, and her younger sister, Kristyn, have lived here for about three years, though Kaitlynn recently moved into transitional housing, preparing her for the days after Nazareth. “I’m giving back what they gave to me,” she said of helping out Wednesday. “I’m a mulcher.” Kaitlynn is among several of the children’s home residents who also have joined Nazareth Community Church. “The church has loved these kids, and they know it,” Shoaf said. Nazareth Community Church’s chapel was the original building for the long-ago orphanage. Shoaf said the church property is owned by the children’s home, and his congregation is operating under a 60year lease. Heather Ciscel, 17, attends Nazareth Community Church and graduated a week ago from Carson High School. While many of her peers have celebrated their graduations by going to the beach, Ciscel said she was drawn to the mission work. “I just feel like it’s serving a better purpose,” she said. Ciscel had just finished a day of mostly scraping paint in the Leonard Cottage courtyard and in one of the other cottages. Her paint crew partners included Hannah Shinn, Breanna Sloop and Jennifer Earnhardt. In the cafeteria, Lisa McDonald, an adult volunteer and member of Faith Baptist Church, was writ-

The notes were then going into envelopes, delivered to the kids later. Tammy Haynes and Cecil Swain, both members of Nazareth Community Church, were helping her. “I really have a passion for Nazareth children,” said McDonald, whose school bus route for Erwin Middle School stopped at the home. By donating time and materials, local companies have made the stay-athome mission possible. Godley’s Garden Center (landscaping materials), Food Lion ( a pallet of water), Cozart Lumber (wood for the shelter) and Charles Cornelius Construction (concrete) are among the companies which have helped. “The key to all of it is being local,” Shoaf said. “The Lord makes it work out.” Forty yards of concrete were donated by someone wishing to remain anonymous. Participating kids were asked to pay $25 a head, if they could afford it. Shoaf spends a lot of his time running errands — he made three trips to the paint store Wednesday. He leads the evening services and checks on the crews during the day. Youth pastor Grant Hinson also has played a key role. Shoaf credits his wife,

Referee Koman Coulibaly of Mali had called it off. Over and over, American players asked, “Why?” In English. Then in French.

Mickelson makes push BY DOUG FERGUSON

“He just ignored us,” Landon Donovan said. “Or he didn’t understand.” Perhaps Coulibaly, working his first World Cup game, will never explain himself. By the rules, he doesn’t have to speak to the media on game days, and his next availability isn’t until Monday. Perhaps it will remain one of those unsolved soccer mysteries. What’s known for now is this: Donovan and Michael Bradley scored second-half goals that did count, and U.S. hopes to reach the second round remained alive with a 2-2 tie Friday.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — From the top of every grandstand to the beach down below, fans desperate for a star at Pebble Beach saluted Phil Mickelson with throaty cheers and messages written in the sand. He gave the gallery what it wanted. He gave the U.S. Open what it needed. Mickelson beat the entire field at a major for the first time in his career — a tournament-best 66 — to put some life into an overcast day and give himself another chance to finally take something more than silver home from a U.S. Open. One day after he didn’t make a single birdie, he made six of them. It wasn’t enough to catch Graeme McDowell, who set the early pace with a 3-under

68 to take a two-shot lead into the weekend. All that mattered to Mickelson, however, was getting back to even par. “I’m in a good spot,” said Mickelson, whose five runner-up finishes MICKELSON is a U.S. Open record. “I don’t look at the leaderboard. I don’t look at other players. I look at par. If you can stay around par, you’re going to be in the tournament Sunday. That was kind of the goal.” Mickelson finished with seven pars and was at 1-under 141, joining a shrinking group of five players who have beaten par over two days at Pebble Beach.

SONOMA, Calif. — Kasey Kahne won the pole Friday at Infineon Raceway in the same car he drove to victory in last year’s race on the road course. K a h n e turned a lap of 93.893 mph around the 11-turn, 1.99-mile course in a Ford for Richard Petty Motorsports. KAHNE He knocked four-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson from the pole. Johnson, who has never won on a road course, qualified second at 93.809 mph in a Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports. “It’s a great car,” he said. “It’s the same car we JOHNSON ran here last year, minus the engine. We’ve got a new Ford engine that runs really well. I’m looking forward to seeing how it runs throughout the race. “Tomorrow (practice) is huge as far as getting the balance right and getting it to turn and hit the corners the way we want to.” K u r t Busch qualified third and was followed by series points leader Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon and Marcos AMBROSE Ambrose, who many consider the darkhorse pick to win Sunday’s race. Tony Stewart rebounded from a terrible practice session to qualify seventh, while Bobby Labonte, Greg Biffle and Martin Truex Jr. rounded out the top 10. Mark Martin was 11th and was followed by series winsleader Denny Hamlin, who has won the last two races and five overall. Dale Earnhardt Jr., the slowest car in practice, qualified 23rd. Among the three drivers who failed to qualify was Michael Waltrip, who was driving a Toyota with a special paint scheme created as part of a “Sponsafy Your Ride Contest.” The winning submission honored a woman’s 1-yearold grandson who suffers from a rare interstitial lung disease. Brandon Ash and Brian Simo were the other two drivers who failed to qualify.

South Rowan’s Maverick Miles, left, and East Rowan’s Noah Holmes share a laugh — and the Rowan County Player of the Year award.

Baseball’s best South’s Miles, East’s Holmes share baseball’s big award BY MIKE LONDON

mlondon@salisburypost.com

After East Rowan’s 13-6 loss to West Rowan, disgusted East coach Brian Hightower ordered a 7:30 a.m. practice for the following morning. East third baseman Noah Holmes didn’t wake up and didn’t make it. That meant a 5:30 a.m. solo practice for Holmes. “Noah is there waiting on me

More All-County

at 5:15,” Hightower said with a grin. “I hit him 100  Coach of Year, 4B fungoes, and he was loving  The team, 5B every minute of it. I told him, ‘Hey, this is supposed to be punishment. Go run 10 poles.’ “Noah laughed and he went and ran those poles, and he wouldn’t have minded running 10 more. We

had a great relationship.” Holmes completed a monumental senior season with a .480 batting average, 46 runs, 17 doubles, 25 walks, 32 RBIs — and one state championship. Holmes was a terrific fielder and the leader of East’s drive to the 3A title. “I’ve never coached anyone who could do the things Noah did defensively at third base,” Hightower said. “We had high expectations

of him and put the pressure of the No. 3 hole on him. He gave us everything we could’ve asked and more.” When he’s old and gray, Holmes can brag to his grandchildren that he shared the 2010 Mark Norris Award with a guy who arguably had the best statistical season any Rowan hitter has ever had.

Strasburg sets mark BY JOSEPH WHITE Associated Press

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Stephen Strasburg has 32 strikeouts through three starts in the majors.

WASHINGTON — Stephen Strasburg can White Sox 2 hardly throw Nationals 1 any better. He set a strikeout record in front of President Barack Obama in another sensational performance. So what rankled him? He didn’t field and bunt as well as he pitched. The baseball holiday known as Strasmas — it comes every fifth day on your calendar right now — was again a spectacle Friday night. The 21-year-old rookie struck out 10 to run his total to an unprecedented 32 through three starts, but he experienced his first no-decision as the Chicago White

Sox beat the Washington Nationals 2-1 in 11 innings before another sellout crowd. Strasburg’s answers about his strikeout record (“That’s never going to be a goal of mine”) and the president (“Awesome — obviously he’s from Chicago, so he wanted to come watch the White Sox, too”) were mostly obligatory, but he was willing to speak more at length about two mistakes any pitcher might routinely make. The game’s first batter, speedy Juan Pierre, barely beat Strasburg to the bag on a grounder to first and eventually came around to score Chicago’s first run. Then, in the sixth, Strasburg failed to get a bunt down with a runner on first and one out.

South wins by 10-run rule BY JORDAN HONEYCUTT sports@salisburypost.com

Another offensive explosion occurred in S. Rowan 15 South Rowan Friday Lexington 5 on night. Twenty-four hours after being “Tuttled” by Kannapolis pitcher John J. Tuttle, South’s bats came back to life in a big way. South scored nine runs in the fifth and pounded Lexington 15-5 in seven innings. The biggest blow came from the usual suspect — Maverick Miles. Miles came to bat with the bases loaded in the fifth and crushed a mammoth shot to left field for a grand slam. “After struggling with Kannapolis, we all just wanted to come back out here at home and swing the bats like we always have,” Miles said. Randy Shepherd, Patrick Bearden, and Julio Zubillaga hammered triples for South, and lefty Jesse park turned in a nice pitching performance. Park hurled five innings, allowing two earned runs on seven hits, while fanning four. “I thought Jesse gave us a gutsy outing on the mound and I wanted to go with him as long as I could,” South coach Michael Lowman said. “We also seemed to find that one inning again that we put the bat on the ball and scored a lot of runs.” Trailing 13-3 going into the

sixth. Lexington scored two runs off Justin Morrison in the top of the inning, only to see South strike for two of its own in the bottom half for MILES the 10-run rule. One key attribute to South’s team is aggressiveness, and it was was on full display. Balls hit into the gap that would be doubles for most teams were legged into triples by South. Lowman also made a nice hitand-run call in the fifth, with Miles on first and Gunnar Hogan at the plate, Lowman sent Miles, and Hogan lined a hard shot up the middle that made the play work to perfection. “Our park is 400 feet to the gap in right-center, so we should get some triples,” Lowman said. “I like to put pressure on the defense and we had the perfect situation for the hit-and-run and it worked.” Patrick Bearden went 2-for-4 with three runs, while Shepherd went 2-for-4 with three RBIs. Lexington was a game opponent for four innings, getting a leadoff homer from Jon Jarvis. Lexington trailed South 4-2 before the bottom fell out in the fifth. The victory for South restores momentum and confidence after

suffering its first league loss to Tuttle and Kannapolis. “I just told the guys that, hey, we weren’t going to go undefeated and the only SHEPHERD team that wins their last game is going to be the state champion, and that we have to have a short memory,” Lowman said. South plays Wilkes at home tonight and has a rematch against Kannapolis on Sunday.

Rowan pulls away in shootout BY MIKE LONDON

mlondon@salisburypost.com

CONCORD — WSTP-1490 broadcaster Howard Platt likes to call it “AreRowan 22 na Baseball,” it’s a frenConcord 8 and zied game Rowan County is getting pretty good at. Rowan outscored Concord 228 on Friday at Central Cabarrus High in a three-hour struggle that included 30 hits and 16 walks. “It’s great that we’re scoring runs, and I’m not saying it’s not fun, but this really isn’t the way baseball was meant to be played,” Rowan coach Jim Gantt said. “It just seems like everybody lifts weights now and everybody can hit. “ For a lot of Legion pitchers, it’s been sort of like — ‘Hey, welcome to college baseball.’ ” It took a while, but Rowan (137, 7-4) broke open a close game in the seventh inning and won its sixth straight. “That final score was a lot different than how the game really was,” Gantt said. Even with all the run support, Rowan starting pitcher Forrest Buchanan, 10-0 last summer, couldn’t pick up his first win of the summer. He gave up four runs in the first, appeared to be finding a groove in the third and fourth, but exited one out shy of qualifying for the win after he ran into control issues in the fifth. Cody Laws pitched 31⁄3 innings of walk-free baseball to bump his record to 4-1. Rowan’s offense came from

everywhere. Eight starters had multiple hits. Justin Morris, the one guy in the lineup who didn’t get a hit, still scored three HOLMES runs. Wesley Barker knocked in five runs, Luke Thomas drove in four, and Hayden Untz scored four times to provide competition, but Noah Holmes still had the biggest offensive night. Holmes accumulated two homers, two walks, an RBI single and an RBI groundout to compile a 4-4-3-5 boxscore. “It’s like the bats have just come around for everybody,” said Holmes, who also turned in a stellar defensive game at third base. “They had some good pitchers, but we did a good job of waiting back, being patient and getting some pitches to hit.” Trailing 4-2 in the third, Rowan put up six runs to take the lead for good. Untz had a run-scoring double. Holmes capped the inning with a twoBARKER run shot to right. Barker’s tworun double in the fourth gave Rowan a 10-5 lead. Holmes crushed a solo homer in the fifth. Concord (5-8, 4-7) got three hits from Matt Barrier, hung in the game behind some very

Associated Press

BOSTON — David Ortiz hugged Manny Ramirez to welcome him back to Fenway Park. Then he hit a home run to move alongside his former teammate on the Boston’s all-time home run list. Ortiz hit his 274th homer for the Red Sox to tie his quirky former teammate for fifth on the franchise’s all-time list, leading Boston to a 10-6 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night in Ramirez’s first game back since his departure. Ramirez, who went 1-for-5, was greeted warmly by the Red Sox and with a mixed reaction from a sold-out crowd that included Roger Clemens. Braves 6, Royals 4 ATLANTA — Chipper Jones and pitcher Derek Lowe each drove in two runs and Lowe won his third straight start at home.

“Didn’t get over there in time in the first inning, probably should have been an out there,” Strasburg said. “I didn’t get the bunt down. It’s the little things like that, up here they’re going to exploit it. I’m just going to come in tomorrow and work on my bunting a little bit — and see the (fielding) play out before it happens next time.” With an attitude like that, he’s going to be hard to beat. The White Sox did it by countering with Gavin Floyd, who faced the minimum number of batters through six of his eight innings.

Hightower: Rowan County coach of the year BY MIKE LONDON

mlondon@salisburypost.com

GRANITE QUARRY — Salisbury and South Rowan produced turnaround baseball seasons, while Carson and North Rowan made significant jumps from 2009. It was a banner season and then some for Rowan County. West Rowan, which took a tiny dip from 15 wins to 14 and missed the playoffs on a tiebreaker, was the only decliner. And put an asterisk next to West’s season. If coach David Wright doesn’t lose his star, Jon Crucitti, to a knee injury, the Falcons win at least 18. Scott Maddox logged his 100th coaching win at Salisbury during a season in which the Hornets improved from 7-17 to 14-11 and finished second in the CCC. That wasn’t supposed to happen. Not after Salisbury had graduated its two studs. Thad Chrismon’s South Rowan program made even bigger strides. The Raiders trampolined from 7-16 to 1610 as youngsters such as Tyler Kowalczyk, Eric Tyler and Matt Miller delivered.

PLAYERS

Rob Linder’s North team doubled its win total from five to 10 while breaking county records for most mileage on road trips. Chris Cauble piloted Carson to 20 wins for the first time and racked up the school’s first playoff victory. Chrismon, Cauble and Maddox offered Coach of the Year credentials in an ordinary year, but this was an extraordinary, statechampionship season for East Rowan. That made Brian Hightower an automatic choice. Hightower is Rowan County Coach of the Year for the fourth time in five seasons. No one disputes this was his best job so far. Why? Because East graduated all the key contributors to its 23-win 2009 team except Noah Holmes and Preston Troutman. Hightower said the first step toward a state championship was taken at the awards banquet that followed the 2009 season. His program was under pressure from the NCHSAA, he was losing a great senior class, and he realized he was standing at a crossroads.

East coach Brian Hightower talks with Noah Holmes. The disappointment of being unable to win a state title in 2008-09 with teams that had the talent to do it ate at a guy who puts eating and breathing well behind baseball on his priority list. Piling on top of Hightower’s frustration were allegations of rule-breaking. “We were losing great players like Smitty (Zach Smith) and Corbin Shive,

and there was a lot of bad stuff coming down on us,” Hightower said. “I admit I pushed some rules, but I hadn’t broken them.” What Hightower told East’s returning players at that modest banquet in the school cafeteria was that nothing was going to change. He vowed the Mustangs would reload. He didn’t promise any

shortcuts. What he promised was blood, sweat and tears for anyone interested. “What we do at East is give kids the opportunity to work their butts off and to get better at baseball,” Hightower said. “Our coaching staff is going to show up and keep showing up, and if the kids show up and go to work, they’ll get better.” Apparently, a lot of players showed up. East didn’t have the overwhelming team speed it had in 2008 when Smith, Justin Roland, Micah Jarrett and Ben DeCelle ran wild. East didn’t possess the outfield offense or the veteran arms it had in 2009, but it was a good young team that progressed to being very good by midseason. Then, finally, with the emergence of reliever Will Johnson and center fielder Will Sapp, it evolved into a great team that won a county-record 31 games. Hightower’s outfield corners were a revolving door. His pitching staff, after horse Thomas Allen went down, was a patchwork quilt. But the Mustangs became increasingly confident there

was no way they could lose once Johnson took the mound. East rallied from behind seven times, including both games in the Western championship series against power-hitting Tuscola. The Mustangs won their last 13. “East didn’t have as many big-name stars as they usually have,” Chrismon said. “But they had a lot of pitchers, their hitters didn’t strike out, and they played defense. They were solid.” Being solid accomplished things being spectacular hadn’t. The blue-collar Mustangs carved out a stae championship. “We’re passionate about baseball at East — and we’re never gonna deny that,” Hightower said. “This season, I couldn’t have had a better wife, a better staff or better parents. “But the biggest reason we had an unbelievable season was unbelievable kids. Not one of ’em played for himself. Every single one of them played for his team and his teammates, and I’ll love ’em forever for that.”

State champ East dominates all-county team BY MIKE LONDON

mlondon@salisburypost.com

Win a state title, get the most all-county players. East Rowan did just that, putting eight players on the 2010 all-county baseball team after sweeping Wilson Hunt for the 3A championship. Carson, a 20-game winner, won its first-ever playoff game and placed six. The Cougars were second in the North Piedmont Conference and South was tied for third, turning things around from 2009 by winning 17 games and taking a first-round playoff win. East didn’t dominate everything, however. Noah Holmes, the Mustangs’ talented third baseman, shared the Player of the Year award with South’s Maverick Miles. • All-county capsules ... East Rowan Noah Holmes, Sr., 3B The Co-Player of the Year had a stretch of 16 straight games in which he scored a run and finished the season with nine straight errorless games at third base. Also enjoyed a nine-game spree in which he battered pitchers at a .608 clip. A repeater on the allcounty team, Holmes signed with Appalachian State. Preston Troutman, Sr., SS-RHP Troutman batted .376 with 14 doubles, six triples and 41 runs scored. Another Appalachian State signee and a two-time all-county player, he was special at shortstop and helped out with 20 innings on the mound. Will Johnson, Jr., LHP He was amazing in East’s championship run, relieving in East’s last 11 games. He was unscored on his last 222⁄3 innings, striking out 20 and walking three. He finished 7-0 with five saves and an ERA of 0.52. Will Sapp, Jr., CF The MVP of the 3A state championship series, Sapp batted .369 with 40 runs, 29 RBIs and 14 steals. His defense was superb all year and his offense caught up in May. He had 13 hits and 11 RBIs in the playoffs. Parker Gobbel, Sr., RHP Gobbel was 10-0 with three saves and 68 strikeouts in 531⁄3 innings. He gave the Mustangs five strong innings in critical starts against Northwest Cabarrus (fourth round) and Wilson Hunt (Game 1 of the championship series). Thomas Allen, Sr., RHP Before suffering a forearm injury, the UNC Pembroke signee was the coun-

Thomas Hester, Sr., CF Jon Crucitti’s knee injury left the Falcons looking for a center fielder and offensive catalyst, and Team MVP Hester produced a stellar season — .378, 26 runs and a county-leading 24 steals. D.J. Webb, Sr., RHP-3B Only had two wins and three saves despite posting similar numbers to his awesome, all-county junior season. A 3-2, nine-inning loss at Carson in which he didn’t allow an earned run summed up 2010 for Webb. At the plate, he did have a little luck. He batted .404. Webb is headed to Catawba.

Celebration turns rowdy in L.A. Associated Press

The NBA notebook ... LOS ANGELES — A jubilant celebration over the Los Angeles Lakers dramatic win in the NBA championship turned rowdy in scattered sections of the city, with raucous revelers hurling rocks and bottles at officers, setting fires and jumping on vehicles. Hundreds of police officers massed around the Staples Center before Game 7 of the NBA finals on Thursday night, aiming to prevent a repeat of the violence that accompanied the Lakers’ victory last year. But despite their massive presence, scattered pockets of violence erupted in neighborhoods near the arena. No major incidents were reported in the rest of the city, police said. At least 20 people had been arrested late Thursday and that number was expected to rise, Los Angeles police Lt. John Romero said. Most of the arrests were for public intoxication, while others were for vandalism and inciting a riot. Television news footage showed several people jumping on a taxi as it attempted to leave the area near the arena after the Lakers beat the Boston Celtics 83-79. Someone opened a rear door of the vehicle, while others rocked it back and forth. The taxi eventually made its way through the crowd and out of the area. Television footage also showed a man being beaten and a car set on fire. And there

were scattered reports of windows being broken at several businesses. Some men ran shirtless in the street, while other people revved car engines and honked their horns in celebration. Broken glass and burnt debris lined the roads. Jazmine Rodriguez, 24, lives in an apartment building not far from Staples Center. She said every car on her street had its windows smashed. “When we came down here, only one window was smashed. The cops told us to go back inside, and they (revelers) smashed the other one,” Rodriguez said. Delmi Ramos tried to salvage what she could from her car, which was filled with shards of broken glass. “We just wanted to see the celebration and be part of the Lakers’ win. We never thought this would happen,” she said. “It’s these young people who don’t know how to behave. They cause damage to people, to the community, because they don’t know how to celebrate in a healthy way.” RATINGS NEW YORK — Game 7 drew the highest preliminary rating for an NBA finals game since 1998. The Lakers’ 83-79 win Thursday night on ABC earned an 18.2 overnight rating. That’s the highest for an NBA game since Michael Jordan won his last championship with the Bulls in Game 6 of the 1998 finals against the Jazz, which posted a 22.9.

NBA: Offseason of change Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — New coaches for the NBA’s winningest franchises. New superstars for some of the teams chasing them. Anything is possible in an offseason that could reshape the league, and it officially started after the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Boston Celtics 83-79 on Thursday in Game 7 of the NBA finals to win their second straight championship. While Kobe Bryant and the Lakers headed off to more celebrations — and Ron Artest’s promised to be a wild one — everyone else will spend the next few weeks plotting ways to close the gap. The draft is Thursday, and then it’s only another week after that until the most anticipated free agency period ever opens on July 1, when Miami will kick off its quest to get LeBron James or Chris Bosh to play with Dwyane Wade. What would you think about going for three in a row against a team like that, Kobe? “I don’t want to think about that,” Bryant said. “Those guys, I’ve seen those guys up close and personal. I don’t want to think about playing against both of them at the same time.” Chicago and New York also dream of a team with multiple superstars, and it might take something like that to stop the Lakers. Bryant, the two-time NBA finals MVP, is still near the top of his game, and Pau

Gasol appears to be getting better every year. But they don’t know yet who will be coaching them. Phil Jackson, who won his 11th title, will take some time before deciding if he will return. He could walk away and retire if he’s not satisfied with a likely pay cut, or perhaps draw an offer from somewhere else — perhaps to coach James in Cleveland? — if he wanted to stay on the sideline. A chance for yet another three-peat — he’s already done it three times — could keep him in Los Angeles. He wouldn’t offer much after the game, beyond saying that winning the title improves his chances of returning. Down the hall, the Celtics were preparing to be broken apart. Doc Rivers isn’t sure of his future, and even if he does return he knows it will be to a different locker room. “We’re not going to be the same team next year,” Rivers said. “Guys are going to not be there, so that was tough for me.” The Celtics haven’t been together that long, with Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett acquired in separate trades in the summer of 2007, joining Paul Pierce to form the core of a team that made two finals in three years. Their turnaround from laughingstock to powerhouse gives hope to the teams hoping for the quick fix this summer, leapfrogging the slow

process of building through the draft by acquiring veterans who are ready to compete for a championship now. At least nine teams could be $10 million or more under the salary cap, able to sign or trade for the types of players who could make them immediate threats to the Lakers. And while so much talk — some of it from the players themselves — is on the idea of a James-Wade type of pairing, it might not even take that much to topple the LEBRON JAMES champs.

called the 35-year-old Wallace a “warrior” who was considering retirement. Rivers said Wallace was battling cramps and strains, which kept him from going inside as he did early in the game. “We had to keep subbing him for one minute and two minutes, and I thought the reason we got up early was because of Rasheed Wallace,” Rivers said. “We got it low in the post, he started scoring, and I thought what happened was late in the game he got tired and had the injuries and we couldn’t go down anymore, and I think that had a huge impact on how we were playing. We had to go away from the post almost because of fatigue.” The Lakers even game-planned for the Celtics’ age. “With the Boston team obviously I saw Garnett fatigue,” coach Phil Jackson said. “And that’s been one of the issues we’ve had all the way through this series, is run him hard and keep running him if you get a chance because fatigue will affect his game.” It was a great run for the Celtics. They just didn’t have the legs to finish it.

Los Angeles police officers form a line to keep the crowd away from Staples Center.

LOS ANGELES — Fighting to stay on the floor every minute of perhaps the last game of his career, Rasheed Wallace finally threw up his hand when it was time for a break. And he wasn’t the only Boston Celtics player who was tired. “I think everyone is not only physically fatigued, but mentally fatigued,” forward Kevin Garnett said. Those old guys ran out of gas just short of the finish line. The Celtics nearly pulled off an improbable championship, leading most of the way against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 7 of the NBA finals on Thursday night before losing 83-79. They wasted a superb defensive effort when their offense stalled midway through the fourth quarter. Boston went without a field goal for nearly five minutes, a decisive stretch when Los Angeles grabbed control. “You know, it’s the first time all year that you can actually say at the end of the day we were old at the end of the game because we didn’t have enough bodies,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “I thought it hurt us.” It was nearly an 18th title for the league’s most decorated team, and perhaps its most unlikely. The Celtics were the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference after playing .500 ball over the second half of the season and were dismissed as too old to compete for a championship. “We had so much adversity. That’s why putting ourselves in a situation to do this would have been miraculous for us. It would have been wonderful,” Ray Allen said. Instead, they finally looked their age Thursday night. Allen’s jumper, one of the prettiest and most reliable in the NBA, was flat all night in a 3-for-14 performance. Paul Pierce was 5 of 15. Garnett, the other member of the aging Big Three, scored 17 points but managed only three rebounds and couldn’t keep Pau Gasol off the backboards. Pierce and Garnett both bent over with hands on shorts in the fourth quarter, usually a symbol of fatigue. A more recognizable sign: Wallace, another old guy who was forced to start and play 36 minutes because of Kendrick Perkins’ knee injury, had to motion to come out of the game when he became winded in the second half. “He was just trying to figure out a way to stay on the floor,” said Rivers, who

Switch messes with Martin’s team deals coming out every day. I get unbelievable calls from people in this garage, but we’re just not ready to pull the trigger.” HAMLIN SONOMA, Calif. — Denny Hamlin did not back off last week’s insinuation that NASCAR sometimes calls caution for debris just to liven up a race. Hamlin led by almost 10 seconds last week at Michigan when NASCAR called a debris caution with 15 laps remaining. Although he still won the race, he said after that the caution was because “this is show business.” Asked about it Friday at Infineon Raceway, he didn’t change his stance and explained that NASCAR often uses debris cautions to bunch up the field and make the race more exciting. “There is always debris around the track,” Hamlin said Friday at Infineon Raceway. “You can call anything debris. You could say that anything is debris and that it is a legitimate safety hazard, but I just think it’s the timing. ’OK, there it is, let’s pick it up and regroup.’ “For the sake of show, that’s OK, but for the sake of competition, it’s not always the right thing. But, if we weren’t talking about that last week, if NASCAR had let it go, people were going to be talking about a boring race, and that’s something we don’t want, either.” NATIONWIDE ELKHART LAKE, Wis. — Jacques is back — at least for this weekend. Canadian racing standout Jacques Villeneuve’s star has faded since he won the 1997 Formula One championship and the 1995 Indianapolis 500. He’ll be racing in the NASCAR Nationwide series at Road America this weekend and is hoping to crank his career back up. The 39-year-old hasn’t had a steady ride in a top-level racing series since 2006. He was close to returning to F1 this season and still hasn’t given up on it. But he also remains intrigued by NASCAR. “I have been away from full-season racing for a few years. I was busy raising kids, and that’s actually more work than racing,” said Villeneuve, who has two children. “Now the plan is to get behind the wheel full-time to get racing.”

SONOMA, Calif. — The spoiler is spoiling Mark Martin’s season, and if his Hendrick Motorsports team can’t get it figured out quickly, last season’s title contender could be a spectator in this year’s championship Chase. This time last season Martin had three wins, three poles and had established himself as a legitimate threat to teammate Jimmie Johnson’s championship reign. He fell short of winning the title — Johnson beat him by 141 points — but still won five races in a remarkable season. Duplicating those numbers hasn’t come easy this year. Martin heads into Sunday’s race at Infineon Raceway winless and clinging to the 12th and final spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field. Crew chief Alan Gustafson puts the shortcomings squarely on himself and his failure to properly adjust when NASCAR switched from the wing to the spoiler back in March. “I will be the first to admit I didn’t do a good job with it,” Gustafson said Friday. “We should have known better. We’re paid to know better, but we missed it and didn’t get it as quickly as we should.” In fairness to Gustafson and his No. 5 team, the switch to the spoiler has seemed to affect the entire Hendrick Motorsports organization. Often viewed as unflappable, the top team in NASCAR has suddenly become very vulnerable as Joe Gibbs Racing and Richard Childress Racing have closed the gap. Johnson won three of the first five races — all with the wing — and since the switch to the spoiler, Hendrick cars have gone winless. “Definitely, we’ve had to work harder on the spoiler,” Hendrick said Friday. “It caught us a little by surprise. It upset the balance of our cars. We just have to work to get it fixed. You go through this.” But no one seems to be suffering as much as Martin’s team, which could find itself outside the top 12 with a poor run Sunday. The 51-year-old Martin remains upbeat, though, and didn’t present as

stormy a view of the situation as his crew chief seemed to have. “We’re not performing, but we are,” he began. “We’re better in execution than we were a year ago. We’re taking what we have and we’re finishing better with it than we did a year ago. Had we been doing as good a job last year, as we have this year, functioning in that respect, we wouldn’t have been sweating quite as hard about making the Chase. “Some of the changes to the cars (the spoiler) have actually affected the cars more than we realized on the surface. And our competition has either responded or it worked in their favor or both, and elevated them above us in the stack.” HENDRICK SONOMA, Calif. — Rick Hendrick dismissed a report that Kasey Kahne will drive for Phoenix Racing next season, the gap year before he moves into Hendrick Motorsports’ No. 5 car. But where Hendrick plans to put Kahne isn’t figured out, either. “No new news there,” Hendrick said Friday at Infineon Raceway. Kahne signed with Hendrick Motorsports in April to drive the No. 5 Chevrolet in 2012, after current driver Mark Martin’s contract expires. The deal called for Hendrick to find a place for Kahne next season while he waits for his seat to open. SI.com reported last week that Hendrick was working on a deal with James Finch to put Kahne in the No. 09 car for 2011. Finch’s Phoenix Racing leans on Hendrick Motorsports for equipment, and last year used Brad Keselowski in several races when Keselowski was a Hendrick developmental driver. But Hendrick said he’s got nothing in the works with Finch. “I don’t know where that came from,” Hendrick said. “James Finch is a good friend and a good customer of our engine shop and I don’t know how that got started. “I’ve had a lot more options than I thought I would and a lot of it is just waiting for the right time and the right deal and ... I haven’t been in a hurry. I know we’ve got some good options and there are new

for the seventh straight match, England lacked a scoring touch against an opponent fighting to avoid becoming the first nation eliminated from the tournament. Serbia 1, Germany 0 PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa — Milan Jovanovic scored one minute after Germany striker Miroslav Klose was

ejected, giving Serbia a 1-0 upset win over the three-time World Cup champs. In a game with a tournament-high nine yellow cards, Serbia goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic stopped Lukas Podolski’s penalty kick for Germany in the 60th minute after Nemanja Vidic got a yellow for a hand ball.

USA FROM 1B

And for one moment, Edu felt “pure excitement.” It did not last. Now it comes down to Wednesday’s match against Algeria. “My guess is there’s not many teams in this tournament that could have done what we did and arguably won the game. And that is what the American spirit is about,” Donovan said. “And I’m sure people back home are proud of that.” Slovenia (1-0-1) leads Group C with four points and would have qualified for the second round with a win. The U.S. and England (both 0-0-2) are tied for second with two points each following England’s 0-0 draw with Algeria (0-1-1). The top two teams in the group advance, so the U.S. would make the second round with a victory against Algeria. The Americans also could advance if they tie the Algerians while England draws Slovenia, provided the U.S. maintains its

Players watch Maurice Edu send the ball toward the net for a goal that was later disallowed. advantage in goals scored over the English, currently 3-1. “We can still get through,” goalkeeper Tim Howard said. “Being down 2-0 in a game, I’ve played long enough to feel very lucky and fortunate to come out of it still in the World Cup.” Donovan took a free kick from the side of the penalty area in the 85th minute as

players jostled in front. Aleksandar Radosavljevic held Michael Bradley in a bear hug, and Edu spun away from Bojan Jokic and, one step into the 6-yard box, stuck out his left foot and put the ball in. It was unclear to the U.S. what Coulibaly actually called. At the time of the whistle, American captain Carlos Bo-

canegra, who was a few feet away from Edu, did have an arm around Nejc Pecnik, preventing the Slovene from jumping for the ball. “I’m a little gutted to be honest,” Donovan said. “I don’t know how they stole that last goal from us.” “Whistles were blown very early. No explanation,” Bocanegra said. And there’s no forgetting it. “What I’ve heard is that there were three fouls in the box, and all of which were against Slovenia players,” coach Bob Bradley said. “In the midst of the game with everything that’s going on, it’s rare that when a tough call is made that a referee at that moment will give you an answer. Sometimes after the fact you might get an answer, but that’s not always the case, either. When you’re involved in the game long enough, there are moments where you are frustrated, because you feel that situations have not been handled 100 percent correctly or fairly. But that’s the way the game works sometimes, so you move on.”

Tiger Woods takes a drop on the third hole Friday.

MICKELSON FROM 1B

Also two shots behind were two-time U.S. Open champion Ernie Els (68), 18-year-old Ryo Ishikawa (71) and Dustin Johnson (70), who has won the last two times in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and looks right at home in much firmer conditions. Even so, the day belonged to Mickelson. The Masters champion, who opened with a 75 on Thursday, ran off five birdies in first eight holes. The blazing stretch ended on the par4 eighth with a 5-iron off the tee that came perilously close to the edge of a 60-foot cliff, setting up a wedge he hit over the ocean to 15 feet and another big roar. Just like that, he was back in the game. “I can’t wait for tomorrow’s round,” Mickelson. “I love being on this golf course.” Tiger Woods believes he’s still in the mix, too, although a pedestrian round of 1-over 72 left him seven shots behind. Woods has never won a major when trailing by more than six shots going into the weekend. Asked if he liked his positions, Woods replied, “Absolutely.” “I’m right there in the championship,” Woods said. “I just need to make a few more birdies, a few more putts on the weekend, and I’ll be right there.” It starts with McDowell, a 30-year-old with five European Tour victories and a pair of 18-hole leads in the majors. He was among the early starters, when the greens were in the best shape and the air was cool and calm. McDowell holed a 35-foot birdie putt on the 14th — the par 5 that chewed up so many other players throughout the day — and pulled ahead with smart shots into the fourth hole and the par-5 sixth to build his lead. “I’m really trying to put no expectations on myself this weekend because I know there’s a lot of great players out here ... and this golf course is extremely difficult,” McDowell said. It just didn’t look that way Friday. It was a gentle start to the second round, with the calm of Stillwater Cove broken only by a pair of dolphins searching for breakfast. Over the next 12 hours, conditions didn’t change much except for a freshening breeze late in the day. McDowell’s round ended with a three-putt bogey on the ninth hole, but it was significant. By dropping to 3-under, he assured that everyone within 10 shots, 7-over or better, would make the cut to play on the weekend — a group that included 60-yearold Tom Watson. Watson, who won his only U.S. Open at Pebble Beach in 1982, made par on the last hole to follow his 78 with a 71. Turns out he would have made the cut on his own, one of the 83 players who were among the top 60 and ties. Watson, the only player to compete in all five U.S. Opens at Pebble Beach, was not surprised by the good scoring. “When you have some wind, that’s when it’s hard to get on these greens, to get the right shot in there, to get the right distance,” Watson said. “Today, the course is going to play as easy as it’s going to play for four rounds. I can guarantee you that.” Mickelson made him look like a prophet. Woods did not. The world’s No. 1 player made his first birdie of the tournament by chipping in on his second hole at No. 11. But he made only two more birdies. Mickelson knew he would have to take advantage on the first seven holes, and he did just that. “I thought something in the 60s was out there and would get me into contention,” Mickelson said.

Pat Terry will perform at The Inn Friday, June 25. sic in the first place. And that music still held a special place in his heart. In the eighties, when Terry worked with producer Mark Heard to put out three solo albums, the rock influence was much more obvious. (Terry’s latest CD is dedicated to Heard.) Then and now, Terry hasn’t felt the need to create a separation between his Christian faith and his activities as a “secular” songwriter in Nashville. He thinks it’s okay to be known as a person of faith who happens to write country music. Even his so-called secular songs are infused with faith, just as his Christian principles guide his daily life, not just on Sunday. He slips comfortably in and out of genres, easily ignoring boundaries that others would impose. The “Laugh for a Million Years” album illustrates his philosophy well. It’s a country album through and through, with some tracks religious in nature, others more spiritual, some allegorical, and at times just a good country ballad. Many of the songs tell stories, and movingly so, with themes of hope and forgiveness.

The liveliest track is the rollicking “Jump On It,” about a family delighting in their prized purchase, a trampoline, in spite of their poor household and unpaid bills. Just as this family isn’t concerned about criticism from neighbors who may feel the money could have been better spent, Terry is impervious to critics who say his talent could be better directed into a certain genre. His reflective “Someplace Green” displays particularly nice guitar work. If it sounds familiar, it may be because you heard the version of this song recorded by the Oak Ridge Boys, and featured in one of their music videos. Also remarkable is the fact that Terry has managed to be a standout in the Nashville songwriting scene without moving to

Nashville. He still lives in his hometown of Smyrna, Ga. For a long time, he made frequent trips to Nashville to work, but he never changed his home base. Terry isn’t concerned that his best-known songs are associated with the artists who performed and made them famous rather than with him, such as “Home Where I Belong,” which has been famously covered by B.J. Thomas. Terry says, “That’s the highest compliment, when an artist makes it his or her own.” • • • Pat Terry will be performing at The Inn, 1012 Mooresville Road, at 8 p.m., Friday, June 25. This is a ticketed event. For information call 704-213-1467.

Proverbs 4 (New International Version)

Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding. 2 I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching. 3 When I was a boy in my father’s house, still tender, and an only child of my mother, 4 he taught me and said, “Lay hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands and you will live. 5 Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them. 6 Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. 7 Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. 8 Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. 9 She will set a garland of grace on your head and present you with a crown of splendor.” 10 Listen, my son, accept what I say, and the years of your life will be many. 11 I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. 12 When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble. 13 Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life. 14 Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men. 15 Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way. 16 For they cannot sleep till they do evil; they are robbed of slumber till they make someone fall. 17 They eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence. 18 The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. 19 But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble. 20 My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. 21 Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; 22 for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body. 23 Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. 24 Put away perversity from your mouth; keep corrupt talk far from your lips. 25 Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you. 26 Make level paths for your feet and take only ways that are firm. 27 Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil. 1

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS A majority of states saw their unemployment rates drop in May. But the widespread declines were mainly because people gave up looking for work and were no longer counted. The unemployment rate fell in 37 states and the District of Columbia, the Labor Department said Friday. Six states had increases and seven experienced no change. Fortyone states and the District of Columbia saw a net increase in jobs. But that reflected national data showing a huge gain because of government hiring of temporary census workers. Stocks rose for a fourth straight day Friday, led by shares of minerals companies after gold prices settled at another record high. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 16 points and ended the week up 2.3 percent. Broader indexes also edged higher. The Dow posted its second consecutive weekly gain. Before that, the Dow had been down for three weeks. Investors have been trying to determine whether the stock market’s “correction” is over. A correction is

generally considered a drop of 10-20 percent from a recent peak. The Dow has risen back 6.4 percent from its lowest close of the year on June 7, but it’s still down 6.7 percent from the 2010 high it reached on April 26. The incipient panic about Europe’s debt crisis seems to have subsided into mere pessimism this week, with the euro rebounding and investors encouraged by political leaders’ new willingness to take quick action to calm market fears. The big underlying issues haven’t been erased: Spain is still dogged by speculation it may eventually need a rescue plan similar to the bailout already given to Greece. And many governments are cutting back on welfare programs and other spending to chip away at their heavy debt burdens — and sometimes facing street protests as a result. Yet positive news from trouble spots Spain and Greece, as well as EU leaders’ united pledge for more banking transparency, helped buoy the euro.

Although nothing is likely to be handed to you on a silver platter in the year ahead, you can accomplish far more than you ever thought possible if you are prepared to work toward your aims. You’ll be capable of remarkable attainments. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — There is no question that you will give of yourself to others when needed without thinking about what’s in it for you. This will elevate you in the eyes of others. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Taking on more responsibility than others might doesn’t brother you a bit. When you see someone in need, you won’t hesitate for a minute to jump in and help however you can. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Because of your good attitude, you’ll take on finishing an old endeavor with the same enthusiasm you might exhibit with a new one and, because of this, complete the job in no time flat. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Conditions couldn’t be more favorable for you at this time, both with your job and your wallet. If you should have to go to work, it could turn out to be a red-letter day. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You’ve been blessed with being able to express yourself creatively. Whatever it is you choose to do, you’ll do well, and it will prove to have a long-lasting, beautifying effect. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Someone you helped in the past might make an effort to pitch in and support whatever it is you are attempting to do. With this person’s help, your project should be completed speedily. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Your tempo might be a bit faster than others, so if you are working on a collective endeavor, take a few breaks from time to time to let co-workers catch up with you. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Even if this isn’t a workday for you, engage in something that could yield you some type of material reward. It’s one of those days when making money comes easy. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Engage in something that requires special knowledge and abilities in your tool kit. You’ll be especially adept at working on projects that require your particular skills. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Don’t hesitate to initiate some necessary changes you feel could help alter your lifestyle or situation. You might be surprised at how easily you’ll be able to accomplish your aims. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Because you have a clear idea of where you stand at the moment on things that are important to you, it shouldn’t take much for you to go along or reject an issue everyone else is pondering. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — You can be a bit of a spendthrift when there is something out there you really want, regardless of the cost. Should you spot something you’ve just got to have, you won’t hesitate. UNITED FEATURE SYNDICATE

Fibromuscular dysplasia may have caused stroke

A loser must go before he can ruff BY PHILLIP ALDER

United Feature Syndicate

The Senior Life Master was watching the rain pour down outside. “No wonder we had so many tables this afternoon,” he commented to the young man sitting with him. “No chance to play golf. ”I remember a deal played on a day like this,“ he continued. The SLM wrote down the North and South hands. ”Constance ffoster-Smythe was South, partnering her fiance, Clarence Comment. How did Constance make six spades after West led the diamond king?“ While the young man thought, the SLM commented on the auction. To be honest (he continued), six spades is against the odds, needing spades 3-2 and hearts 4-3. Also, on this lead, if West has three spades, he must have four hearts. Most Souths would respond one spade and jump to four spades on the second round. North, with three diamond losers and only one spade, would pass. Constance, though, started with a strong jump shift. And Courtney jumped to five spades to ask for a control in the unbid suit, diamonds. Constance, with a trump loser, could not afford a diamond loser. And if an opponent trumped in before she discarded both of her diamond losers, she would be down. She won the first trick and drew two rounds of trumps. Then she took dummy’s top hearts, throwing one diamond, ruffed a heart in her hand, crossed to the board with a club, and called for another

heart. If East had ruffed, Constance would have pitched her last diamond. And when he discarded, she ruffed, went back to the board in clubs, and threw her diamond nine on the high heart.

Sarah McLachlan returns with new CD, Lilith Tour

LOS ANGELES (AP) — At long last, there’s an allnew studio album from Sarah McLachlan. “Laws of Illusion” — her first in seven years — was released this month. What took so long? “I luxuriously get to pick and choose how much I want to work and how much I want to be mom,” McLachlan said. “I just don’t want to miss any of it. So, I made a choice to just kind of put my career, not on hold, but just pick and choose what I do and be a mom for the most part. I really love having that time with them.” The album’s first single is an upbeat pop confection, “Loving You is Easy.”

Dear Dr. Gott: I am an active 58-year-old female, 5 feet 6 inches and 119 pounds. I had Grave’s disease, for which medication was ineffective, so I was given radioactive iodine, which eliminated my thyDR. PETER roid. I now take Levoxyl GOTT as well as full-strength aspirin and a daily multivitamin. My father died at age 57 of a stroke. He also had asthma and high blood pressure. My mother passed away from cancer and had adult-onset diabetes. Out of the blue, while driving with my husband to our daughter’s house three hours away, I suddenly had split vision. A horizontal black line appeared in the middle of my vision with a picture on top and one on the bottom. It was very disconcerting, and I knew something very bad had happened, although the incidence only lasted about two minutes. I called my physician in my hometown who thought everything was OK since my “numbers” (cholesterol, blood pressure, etc.) had always been very good, but he told me to come in and see him the following week when I returned home. He ordered an MRI and an MRA, which showed that I had suffered a stroke and also have fibromuscular dysplasia in my neck. Because he was unfamiliar with the dysplasia, he sent me to a

neurologist, who doubted the diagnosis because fibromuscular dysplasia typically occurs in younger people. To confirm the diagnosis, he sent me for a CT angiography, which showed I did indeed have it in the right internal carotid artery. I was told there was no definitive treatment and that it may progress rapidly or slowly, although he thought in my case it would be slow. I was also told that my particular case wasn’t considered severe because there was no bulging and there was otherwise good flow through the arteries. The neurologist passed his recommendations on to my regular physician for periodic follow-up to include Doppler studies and ultrasounds. Can you tell me more about fibromuscular dysplasia? Could my Grave’s, the radioactive iodine or the Levoxyl have contributed to this? Thank you. Dear Reader: Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a condition in which one or more arteries develop an abnormal cluster of cells within the artery wall. The cell cluster causes narrowing, which reduces blood flow and may lead to organ damage. It most commonly affects premenopausal women between the ages 14 and 50 but may also be found in young adult men and older women. FMD typically affects the renal arteries that supply the kidneys but may also be found in arteries that lead to the arms, legs, abdomen or brain. About 25 percent of those with FMD will have

more than one narrowed vessel and while there is no cure, there are effective treatments. Symptoms vary depending on which arteries are affected. If the abdominal arteries are involved, you may experience unintended weight loss or pain after eating. If the renal arteries are affected, you may experience neck pain, blurred vision or temporary loss of vision, dizziness, high blood pressure, chronic headaches, tinnitus, chronic kidney failure or ischemic renal atrophy (tissue death). If the peripheral arteries (arms and legs) are affected, you may experience weakness, numbness, cold limbs, discomfort when moving the limbs or changes in skin color or appearance. There is no known cause, but it is believed that several factors may play a role, including hormones, abnormally formed arteries and genetics.

Treatment depends on the severity and location of the FMD as well as a person’s overall health. Medication is typically recommended and include ace inhibitors, calcium channel blockers and beta blockers, which are all medications prescribed for high blood pressure. Many people who are otherwise healthy often undergo surgical repair of the affected artery or arteries and are often advised to take medication following surgery as a precaution. The most frequently recommended procedure is percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA), which essentially uses a balloon catheter to expand the narrowed section(s) of artery. Stents are not typically required to keep the vessel open. The last option is surgical revascularization. This procedure is used when PTRA is not an option, such as when the arteries are severely narrowed.
