Jobless rate dips slightly


Unemployment figure drops to 11.8 percent BY SHELLEY SMITH


Raleigh photographer Rob Moseley checks his camera before the group shot of Salisburians on Fisher Street on Friday Morning.

Residents come out to be part of group photo


hink of all the group photographs you participate in over your life — and where they take place. The kindergarten class photo in the school auditorium. The Little League baseball team photograph next to the dugout. The church confirmation class in front of the altar. The family reunion photograph at the beach. The wedding party photograph at the church. The recent retirees photo in front of the office water cooler. We’ve been lining up for group photos throughout our lives. So when word spreads that a “community-wide” picture will MARK be taken on the 100 block WINEKA of East Fisher Street and everyone is invited, you tend to want to check it out. It’s just what we do. Friday morning, Salisburians filtered toward “Brick Street” alone, by twos and threes, or in bigger groups. Debbie Hoffman stopped her daily power walk through the downtown when she saw the gathering crowd and decided to hang around for the photograph. “I just happened to stumble on it,” she said. Hoffman wore a gray Carolina T-shirt and some Pfeiffer gym shorts — perfect attire for the summer morning already creeping toward 90 degrees. Overhead, in a June Goodman & Son

Rowan County’s unemployment rate fell onetenth of a percent from 11.9 to 11.8 percent for the month of May. North Carolina’s rate fell as well, moving from 10.8 to 10.3 percent. All but one of Rowan’s surrounding counties saw a decline in unemployment rates, with one seeing no change. Cabarrus County stayed at 10.8 percent, Davidson fell to 11.9 percent, Davie fell to 10.3 percent, Iredell fell to 11.7 and Stanly fell to 11.4. Debbie Davis, manager of Rowan’s Employment Security Commission and JobLink, said the change wasn’t significant, but was better than an increase. According to Lynn Holmes, chairman of the N.C. Employment Security Commission, thousands of people in North Carolina will be hired over the next 45 days following a survey of 12,700 employers in North Carolina. “We asked the managers of our 89 offices statewide to call or visit these employers in their areas to see what the local hiring prospects

Pizza delivery man robbed ... of pizza

Marshall Hurley uses a megaphone to direct the crowd for the photographer Rob Moseley during a group photograph at the brick portion of Fisher Street. bucket truck, Rob Moseley of Raleigh was readying his camera and judging how to shoot from South Main Street and squeeze everyone into his frame between the East Fisher Street walls. Moseley and his partner, Marshall Hurley of Greensboro, are in the home stretch toward publishing their first “My Hometown Book,” and they happened to choose Salisbury as guinea pig for the initial one. In recent weeks, seven photographers have been taking thousands of photo-

graphs of Salisbury buildings, people and signature spots for inclusion in the book. Thousands of photographs surely won’t make the final cut, but enough will, the publishers hope, to capture our community at this point in time. The book’s photographers were in town for the last time Friday and today. One thing Hurley and Moseley want to include in each of their “Hometown” books is a community-wide photo.


A pizza delivery man was robbed last night, but the thieves didn’t even ask for the driver’s wallet, they just ran off with the pizza. Chris Magaz was driving a pizza delivery car on the 400 block of East Bank Street at about 11 p.m. when two teens that Magaz estimated were 14 or 15 years old walked up to the car and told him they had ordered the pizza. Magaz pulled the pizza out of the warmer and handed it to the boys, who then took off running. Magaz realized he was being robbed of his pizza and took off after them. He caught up with them in a nearby abandoned house. He told police that he said to the boys that he’d have given them the pizza for free if they were hungry, but because they decided to steal it from him, he was going to have to call the police. At that point they took off running, but left the pizza behind. Police arrived shortly thereafter, but were unable to apprehend them.

Rowan native dies in Florida after SUV hits metal post, catches fire BY SCOTT JENKINS

A Rowan County native and his wife died in a wreck Tuesday in Jacksonville, Fla. The Florida Highway Patrol reported that 54-year-old Danny Reavis was driving his sport utility vehicle on Interstate 295 around 9:30 a.m. when he drifted onto the shoulder and hit a metal post. He and his wife, 55-year-old Zenaida Reavis, died at the scene, where the SUV caught fire. A decorated veteran, Danny Reavis will be buried in Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Fla., his brother, Keith Reavis of Mocksville, said Friday. Danny Reavis grew up in Woodleaf and graduated from West Rowan High School in 1975. Keith

Reavis said people might remember that his brother was one of three graduates that year who suffered broken necks, Danny’s in an automobile accident. But Danny Reavis healed and joined the military shortly after graduation. He served nearly three decades in the U.S. Army and retired around 2001 with credit for 30 years. An Army Ranger, Danny Reavis saw action in several conflicts, including some missions he wasn’t allowed to tell his family about, Keith Reavis said. “He did enjoy it,” Keith Reavis said of his brother’s time in the military. “He made a career out of it.” He received numerous decorations including three Purple Hearts for being wounded in action. He retired as a command sergeant ma-

jor, the highest rank for a noncommissioned officer. And it was while serving in the Army that Danny Reavis met his wife of 28 years, Zenaida, a native of the Philippines. She had a young boy named Robert, who became very close to Danny Reavis. “He pretty much considered him as his son, and Robert considered Danny his father,” Keith Reavis said. After he retired from the Army, Danny and Zenaida Reavis moved to Orlando, Fla. and lived there for a few years until his mother was stricken with cancer. They sold their home and moved to Cooleemee. While here, Danny Reavis worked as a guard at the Piedmont Correctional Institution, where Zenaida worked as a nurse. For a

short time before that, he worked as a security guard at Performance Fibers, where two of his three brothers work. Danny Schenk, who graduated from West Rowan in 1975 with Danny Reavis, also works at Performance Fibers. “He was a heck of a nice guy. You couldn’t ask for nobody no better,” Schenk said Friday. A few months ago, the couple moved back to Florida and Zenaida took a job as a nurse in correctional facility there. Danny Reavis became a full-time retiree, adopting a “big old dog” from a pound named Coco, his brother said. “That was his buddy,” Keith Reavis said. “He was enjoying it.” The couple had rented a house in Lake City, Fla. but were planning

to buy in a retirement community in Ocala, where one of Zenaida’s sisters and her husband lived. “But that never happened,” Keith Reavis said. Investigators with the Florida Highway Patrol have told the family they believe Danny Reavis had a heart attack or blacked out before the fatal crash Tuesday, “but they really don’t know what happened for sure,” Keith Reavis said. In addition to Keith and his wife, Cindy, survivors in Rowan include brothers Larry and wife Donna and Randy and wife Anita, as well as several nieces and nephews. Zenaida Reavis had a number of relatives in Florida. The Associated Press contributed to this article. Contact Scott Jenkins at 704797-4248.

Liz Tennett had a representative group from the Youth Services Bureau standing together in white T-shirts. She also came with a sign, promoting the organization.

Choices, said Weisberg’s idea is a “non-starter” because psychiatrists are not allowed to write lethal prescriptions. Moreover, she doubts it would make much business sense. Patients, she said, prefer to die at home, surrounded by the people and things they love. “I don’t think very many people are interested in paying Dr. Weisberg to go to his house,” said Lee.

No date had been set for the opening of Dignity House. Weisberg has invited doctors and politicians to learn more about his idea at a July 21 presentation. Though he could operate the place as a private businessman, Weisberg said he would walk away if the suspension is not lifted. The medical board voted 8-0 for the emergency suspension of Weisberg’s license. According to the three-page order, Weisberg improperly prescribed ketamine to a 68-year-old woman who complained of depression and wrongly provided a medical-marijuana card to a 54-year-old woman with an extensive history of bipolar disorder. Weisberg had run afoul of the board on previous occasions and had earlier been placed on probation. In 2009, Weisberg and the board agreed that he would meet with a mentor twice a month to review charts and discuss patient-care issues. The 37-year-old Weisberg, according to the board’s suspension order, “has recently manifested behavior indicative of grandiosity, compulsivity, and risk taking behavior that calls his ability to practice medicine competently and in conformity to

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A Portland psychiatrist who plans to open a home for terminally ill patients seeking to kill themselves has had his license suspended by medical regulators. The Oregon Medical Board took the action Thursday against Dr. Stuart Weisberg for an investigation of improperly prescribing drugs. Weisberg said he had not been informed of the board’s action and was continuing to see patients. “That’s cool,” he said Friday. “If they want to suspend me, I’ll fight it. I was expecting some heat.” Oregon in 1997 became the first state to make it legal for a doctor to prescribe a lifeending drug to a terminally ill patient who requests it. More than 400 patients have used the option, but most swallow the lethal medication in the comfort of their own home. The “Dignity House” would have been the first of its kind in the United States, where assisted suicide is illegal in all but three states. According to the Dignity House website, a 21-hour stay would cost $600 and patients would be required to spend another $600 for an “end-of-life camera” to record the final hours. Optional services include nursing, catering, security, a personal assistant, a professional pianist and flowers from Weisberg’s home garden. Weisberg’s presence is another option. “Normally, I will not be present for the completion of the Death of Dignity Act,” the website states. “If,

Congress moves toward law clamping down on risky Wall Street practices that drove meltdown

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — BP’s effort to drill a relief well through 21/2 miles of rock to stop the Gulf spill is on target for completion by mid-August, the oil giant said Friday. But BP’s stock tumbled anyway over the mounting costs of the disaster and the company’s inability to plug the leak sooner. The relief well is considered the best hope of halting the crude that has been gushing since April 20 in the biggest offshore oil spill in U.S. history. The crew that has been drilling the relief well since early May ran a test to confirm it is on the right path, using a tool that detects the magnetic field around the casing of the original, blownout well. “The layman’s translation is, `We are where we thought we were,�’ said BP spokesman Bill Salvin. Several such tests are necessary, since drilling sideways into the original well casing requires boring through more than 13,000 feet of rock to hit a target 9 inches in diameter, or about the size of a dinner plate.

Vatican ‘astonished and outraged’ at the Belgian police raid VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican said Friday it was astonished and outraged that Belgian police investigating priestly sex abuse had conducted raids that also targeted the graves of two archbishops. The Vatican summoned the Belgian ambassador to the Holy See to convey its anger over the raids, which also included the home and offices of the retired archbishop of Belgium. The ambassador was called in for a meeting with the Vatican’s foreign minister. In a statement, the Vatican said any sinful and criminal abuse of minors from members of the church must be condemned and repeated that there is a need for justice and amends. But it added, “The Secretariat of State also expresses astonishment at the way in which the search took place.� It expressed “outrage over the violation of the tombs.� On Thursday, police raided the home and former office of former Archbishop Godfried Danneels, taking documents and Danneels’ personal computer.

GOP schedules military witnesses against Kagan WASHINGTON (AP) — A retired Army general who drew criticism for church speeches casting the war on terrorism in religious terms is one of the GOP’s witnesses against Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry� Boykin is one of four military witnesses Senate Republicans are calling to help make the case against Kagan in Judiciary Committee hearings that begin Monday. In 2003, Boykin gave speeches at evangelical Christian churches in which he painted the war on terror as a Christian fight against Satan and suggested that Muslims worship idols. He later apologized. Republicans and conservative activists have criticized Kagan for her decision as dean of Harvard Law School to deny military recruiters access to the campus career services office.

Democrats mulling stand-alone jobless aid to help economy WASHINGTON (AP) — The demise of Democrats’ jobs-agenda legislation means that unemployment benefits will phase out for more than 200,000 people a week. Governors who had counted on fresh federal aid will now have to consider more budget cuts, tax increases and layoffs of state workers. Democratic officials said the House may try to revive the long-stalled jobless aid bill next week as a standalone bill shorn of controversial tax and spending provisions that prompted Senate Republicans to filibuster it on Thursday. But the Senate may not have enough time to clear the measure for President Barack Obama’s desk before leaving Washington for the Fourth of July recess. The impasse has meant that more than 1.2 million people have lost unemployment benefits averaging $300 a week. The aides required anonymity to speak freely about internal party strategy. Stymied by Republicans, Democrats are at a loss as they struggle to help pump up the economy in the runup to congressional elections this fall.

Economy grows at slower pace in first quarter WASHINGTON (AP) — The economic recovery won’t be catching fire any time soon. Businesses and governments are likely to reduce spending in the second half of the year. Consumers, who drive most economic growth, aren’t expected to take up the slack. The Commerce Department said Friday that the economy grew at an annual rate of 2.7 percent in the first quarter, offering its third and final estimate for the period. It was slower than initially thought because consumers spent less and imports rose faster that previously calculated. Economists anticipate even slower growth ahead as companies bring their stockpiles more in line with sales. Factory output has climbed this year. But it was driven more by businesses replenishing their warehouses after the recession and less by consumer demand. “The economy is growing, but still at a disappointingly slow pace,� said Zach Pandl, an economist at Nomura Securities. Take away businesses restocking their inventories and “you still have a lukewarm recovery,� he said.

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said Friday most illegal immigrants entering Arizona are being used to transport drugs across the border, an assertion that critics painted as exaggerated and racist. Brewer said the motivation of “a lot� of the illegal immigrants is to enter the United States to look for work, but that drug rings press them into duty as drug “mules.� “I believe today, under the circumstances that we’re facing, that the majority of the illegal trespassers that are coming into the state of Arizona are under the direction and control of organized drug cartels and they are bringing drugs in,� Brewer said. “There’s strong information to us that they come as illegal people wanting to come to work. Then they are accosted and they become subjects of the drug cartel,� she said. Sen. Jesus Ramon Valdes, a member of the Mexican senate northern border affairs commission, called Brewer’s comments racist and irresponsible.

Online porn peddlers may get .xxx Web address BRUSSELS (AP) — It may soon be easier to block Internet porn: The agency that controls domain names said Friday it will consider adding .xxx to the list of suffixes people and companies can pick when establishing their identities online. The California-based nonprofit agency, ICANN, effectively paved the way for a digital red light district to take its place alongside suffixes such as .com and .org, finally ending a decade-long battle over what some con-

sider formal acknowledgment of pornography’s prominent place on the Internet. While the move may help parents stop their children from seeing some seedy sites, it wouldn’t force porn peddlers to use the new .xxx address — and skeptics argue that few adult-only sites will give up their existing .com addresses. Still, it’s seen as a symbolic step in the opening up of Internet domain names and suffixes, coming on the same day the agency said it would start accepting Chinese script for domain names. The decision is primarily a victory for U.S. company ICM Registry LLC, which has applied repeatedly to be able to register and manage the .xxx suffix.


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Attention skygazers: A portion of the moon will cross into the Earth’s shadow Saturday during a partial lunar eclipse visible in the western United States and Canada, the Pacific and eastern Asia.For West Coast viewers, the eclipse will occur in the pre-dawn hours.

After farm accident, British bionic cat gets faux paws LONDON (AP) — Oscar the cat may have lost one of his nine lives, but his new prosthetic paws make him one of the world’s few bionic cats. After losing his two rear paws in a nasty encounter with a combine harvester last October, the black cat with green eyes was outfitted with metallic pegs that link the ankles to new prosthetic feet and mimic the way deer antlers grow through skin. Oscar is now back on his feet and hopping over hurdles like tissue paper rolls. After Oscar’s farming accident, which happened when the 2 1/2-year-old-cat was lazing in the sun in the British Channel Isles, his owners, Kate and Mike Nolan, took him to their local veterinarian. In turn, the vet referred Oscar to Dr. Noel Fitzpatrick, a neuro-orthopedic surgeon in Eashing, 35 miles southwest of London. Together with biomedical engineering experts, Fitzpatrick gave Oscar two metal prosthetic implants, or pegs. Those were attached to custom-built faux paws that are a bit wobbly, to imitate a cat’s natural walk. But first, he covered the brown implants with black tape to match Oscar’s fur. Fitzpatrick said he and biomedical engineers designed the artificial paws so that they would be fused to the bone and skin. “That allows this implant to work as a seesaw on the bottom of the animal’s limbs to give him

WASHINGTON (AP) — The toughest financial regulations since the Great Depression are headed for final votes in Congress next week, covering everything from debit card swipes at Starbucks to the most complex securities, in an electionyear salve for public anger over the Wall Street risk-taking that cost millions their jobs, homes and nest eggs. House and Senate bargainers approved the deal as the sun rose Friday, giving President Barack Obama a fresh campaign-season triumph after his health care overhaul — and an achievement to tout at the weekend global economic summit in Toronto. Democrats hope lawmakers can pass the legislation and ship it to Obama for his signature by July 4, capping a burst of action prompted by the worst recession in seven decades. The legislation creates a new federal agency to police consumer lending, set up a warning system for financial risks, force failing firms to liquidate and map new rules for instruments that have been largely uncontrolled. Leaving the White House for Toronto, Obama said the package will “help prevent another financial crisis like the one that we’re still recovering from.� While some financial analysts said it would set tough new restraints on banks, others said they would simply find new ways to make money by getting around the rules and establishing new fees.

Sidewalk projects part of an effort to improve air quality, safety BY SHELLEY SMITH

Sidewalks are beginning to pop up around Salisbury, connecting streets, neighborhoods, businesses and people. The sidewalk construction, which is fully funded by the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) federal funding program, began a few weeks ago and will continue for the next two months. The CMAQ funds being used are available for cities and towns with air quality isShelley Smith / SaliSbury PoSt sues, and encourage resiSidewalks and curbing are being installed along Martin luther dents to walk instead of using King Jr. avenue, along with sidewalks along Statesville boule- their vehicles, creating less of a negative impact on air vard and around Salisbury High School.

quality. This is the first time Salisbury has received funding for sidewalk construction. Three of the city’s four proposed sidewalk construction areas were chosen. “We’ve been working on trying to get this funding for about five years,” City Engineer Craig Powers said. The first of three locations for sidewalks can be found on both sides of Statesville Boulevard, connecting Jake Alexander Boulevard with West Innes Street. The second is a loop around Salisbury High School, beginning at Wilson Road, and looping to Locke Street, Thomas, Caldwell and Lincolnton roads. A short sec-

tion of Taylor Street will also be paved for sidewalks. The third project is on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, and will connect existing sidewalk all the way to Vance Street — beside the city’s new technology center. Ryan Street will also have sidewalks, and will extend up the hill, and into neighborhoods. A total of 3.75 miles of sidewalk is being installed around Salisbury in places that have never had sidewalks. Statesville Boulevard alone will have three miles of sidewalk. Total CMAQ funding received by the city is around $650,000. “These sidewalks have been on the radar for a long

time,” Powers said. The Jaycee-Optimist Sports Complex will now be safely reachable by pedestrians, something that is part of Salisbury Parks and Recreation’s master plan. “This will connect and complete the sidewalk system along Martin Luther King Junior Avenue,” said Gail Elder White, director of Salisbury Parks and Recreation. “The sidewalk just stops, and (the new sidewalk) will be one of the connecting points. “The sidewalks will be good, and give children safe transportation to the park.”

RALEIGH (AP) — Republican and Democratic candidates alike had problems recording and reporting the value of private air travel during their 2004 and 2008 campaigns for governor, according to a report issued Friday. All gubernatorial campaigns using private aircraft in the 2004 and 2008 election cycles struggled to report aircraft use fully and accurately, State Board of Elections Executive Director Gary Bartlett said in an accompanying memo. “However, no evidence surfaced indicating any intent of wrongdoing,” Bartlett wrote. The North Carolina Republican Party last year asked state elections officials to investigate Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue’s campaign for potential campaign finance violations after some private campaign flights were reported after free or discounted air travel became a political issue. The state elections board ordered former Gov. Mike Easley’s campaign committee to pay $100,000 in penalties after failing to report dozens of flights he took over several years. Perdue’s campaign committee last year reported 40 flights that had not been disclosed or accounted for in her 2004 campaign for lieutenant governor and 2008 campaign for governor. Some of the aircraft provided to Perdue were owned by people who had already given her campaign the maximum allowed by law. Friday’s report said that Perdue’s campaign committee on Thursday paid for another flight — a September 2007 trip to a Michigan fundraiser. The elections board said eight gubernatorial hopefuls in 2004 and 2008 reported not using aircraft in their cam-

paigns. Of the others, elections board investigators found: • They could not determine who paid for an eightcity jaunt by Republican Patrick Ballantine during his 2004 campaign for governor. • Republican Richard Vinroot’s primary-day air travels in 2004 weren’t clearly accounted. • Republican Pat McCrory’s 2008 campaign failed to disclose or pay for two trips. Bills for the flights were paid and an amended report filed in February after the elections board began its investigation. Campaign disclosure reports also mention one USAir flight, while other documents show three payments for flights. • Fred Smith owned his own Cessna Citation 525 aircraft, which he used during his Republican primary campaign in 2007 and 2008. Smith’s committee said it was told to treat the aircraft the same way as a personal vehicle and did not report its use. The elections board investigator said there was no record of that discussion, and that candidates are required to disclose all contributions they give their campaign. • Investigators said they were unable to determine whether Bill Graham’s 2008 GOP campaign committee disclosed expenditures for using a private plane in line with guidance from the elections board in 2007. • Democrat Richard Moore’s 2008 campaign treasurer reported destroying all records, which elections board investigators said were supposed to be retained until January 2011. Moore’s committee did not show what it spent on air travel. The report did not say whether the Moore campaign would face any repercussions for destroying records.

Hundreds gather for grand opening of China Grove Farmers Market BY HUGH FISHER

CHINA GROVE — Cold watermelon, fresh-baked bread, flowers and fruits and veggies ripe from the vine. Those treats and more are once again within walking distance of downtown every Friday at the China Grove Roller Mill. The market opened in May, but officially celebrated its grand opening with a ceremony Friday evening. With more and more North Carolinians demanding fresh produce, the Market at the Mill is a farmers market to be proud of, Assistant N.C. Commissioner of Agriculture Richard Reich. “(Farmers markets) provide a sense of community,” Reich said. “They strengthen the bonds between people. Markets like this one keep our state’s rich agricultural heritage alive.” Friday’s ceremony drew more than 300 visitors, according to market manager Alan Goodman. Town officials joined Goodman and Reich to officially cut the ribbon following Reich’s address and a blessing by retired pastor Jim Harris. From 4 to 7 p.m. each Friday until September, local growers can gather to sell their wares. This week’s offerings included

vegetables and fruits from Rowan and Cabarrus counties and farmraised beef steaks and pork sausage. It’s a return to tradition for the China Grove Roller Mill, where in the old days farmers used to gather and sell wares. “We’ve come full-circle,” said Barbara Doby, China Grove Historical Society president. She stood with Mayor Pro Tem Lee Withers, who is also chair of China

Grove Farmers Day, following the ceremony. The two were part of the brain trust that came up with the idea making the mill the location for the farmers market. Doby said it was a community effort, and the town had come out in support of it.

A truck pulling a trailer loaded with lumber overturned on Interstate 85 near Jake Alexander Boulevard on Friday afternoon. According to the Highway Patrol, the accident happened at 2:30 p.m., and occurred a few hundred feet from the Jake Alexander Boulevard exit. The vehicle overturned on the southbound side of

the highway and tossed lumber blocked two lanes of traffic on the right-hand side of the road. The truck appeared to have hit the guardrail, causing damage to the rear of the truck, trailer and the guardrail. No one was injured in the accident, and one wrecker was called. The truck was registered in Virginia.


Union-backed candidate won’t take on Kissell

CRIME ROUNDUP Thieves take TV from Rent-a-Center A television set was stolen from a Rent-A-Center at 155 Winterlocken Road in Salisbury between 10 and 10:30 p.m. Tuesday. R.J. Johnson, the investigating officer, found that a window had been broken out and someone had crawled through the broken window into the basement of the building. The thief/thieves picked up a 47 inch Panasonic television and walked out the door, leaving it open. The case is still under investigation and no arrests have been made. In other reports from the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office: • Frank’s Pawn shop at 107 N. Main St. in Salisbury was defrauded out of $100 Tuesday. The offender allegedly pawned stolen items under false pretense, he claimed the items belonged to him. • Hilary Rowland, 18, of Salisbury reported that someone damaged the tires of her vehicle at 117 Chelton Court on Wednesday. • Nickia Shanay Rose, 22, was arrested on misdemeanor charges of breaking and entering a building at 525 Hope Hill Road in Salisbury.

SATURDAY, JUNE 26, 2010 • 5A


The man then reportedly ran out of the house. Ritchie and Spawn couldn’t give much a description of the man, but did say he was a white male. The Sheriff’s Office has not made any arrests, and the case is still under investigation.

Trooper charged with drunken driving resigns RALEIGH (AP) — An offduty North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper has resigned after his arrest on charges of drunken driving and felony hit and run. Patrol spokesman Sgt. Jeff Gordon said Master Trooper Timothy Scott Stiwinter of Hendersonville resigned effective Friday. He had been with the patrol since 1999. The Asheville CitizenTimes obtained court papers that say a vehicle driven by Stiwinter ran a red light Thursday night and hit another car at an Asheville intersection.

RALEIGH (AP) — A former aide to Democratic U.S. Rep. Larry Kissell announced Friday he won’t challenge his old boss in the fall election even though a petition drive generated enough signatures to put him on the ballot as an independent candidate. Wendell Fant, who was the target of the union-backed North Carolina Families First group, said he wouldn’t run for the 8th Congressional District seat although at least 21,000 voter signatures had been verified by elections officials. But Fant, who resigned from Kissell’s Concord district office last month, had to take the final step and file the petition information with the State Board of Elections by Friday’s deadline. “I have to put my family ahead of my own political ambitions, and for that reason I will not be a candidate for Congress this year,” said Fant, 42, of Concord, who is married and has a son. North Carolina Families First, which mounted a drive

to collect nearly 17,000 signatures for an independent bid to challenge Kissell because of his opposition to the health care overhaul signed into law by President Obama, can’t use the signatures now to replace Fant with another candidate. The group, funded by the Service Employees International Union and its local, the State Employees Association of North Carolina, has warmed up to Kissell now that Fant isn’t running. On Friday, it pointed out Kissell’s voting record on legislation extending unemployment benefits, protecting families against mortgage fraud and

encouraging clean energy sources. “He’s also heard our message ... and lately he’s voted in ways that make a difference for all of us,” Fant said in a news release. Kissell is being challenged by Republican Harold Johnson of Concord, who won Tuesday’s GOP primary runoff. Despite concerns about Kissell, group spokesman Greg Rideout said “it’s clear that Kissell is going to be better than Johnson.” “In spite of our tremendous disagreement with him on his vote against health care reform, we applaud him for those votes,” the group

said in a release. Kissell’s campaign had no comment on Fant’s announcement, a campaign spokesman said. A Fant candidacy could have peeled off Kissell’s votes from liberal Democrats and opened the door for Johnson to win in the swing district encompassing several south-central counties between Charlotte and Fort Bragg. The state Democratic Party had called the group’s effort misguided. “The Democratic Party as always stood by Congressman Kissell as he has stood by working families,” state party executive director Andrew Whalen said.

A man finishing up a smoke break on a friend’s porch was unpleasantly surprised when a gun barrel was stuck against his back after he turned around to go back inside. Kenneth Spawn, 49, of Kannapolis reported an attempted robbery to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office that he said occurred at his home on 155 Winterlocken Road on Tuesday. Spawn had guest Joshua Ritchie over at his home at about 10 p.m. Tuesday. Ritchie walked out onto Spawn’s porch to smoke a cigarette. After Ritchie finished his cigarette, he told deputies he turned around to go back inside, and that’s when a man came up behind him and stuck a gun to his back. Ritchie told police that the armed stranger then told Ritchie to go back in the house. Once the gunman was inside the house with Ritchie and Spawn, he told them to empty out their pockets or he would shoot them. Spawn told police that he refused the armed man’s request and said he was going to call 911.

A Salisbury man claims his Playstation was stolen while he was asleep. Christopher Uhler, 22, 942 Lincolnton Road, reported Tuesday that he went to bed at about 5 a.m. When he woke up at 1:20 p.m., his Playstation 3 was missing. Uhler claims that he was playing games on the Playstation with a neighbor before he went to sleep, and suspects that the neighbor then made off with his game console. The Salisbury Police Department is investigating the theft. In other reports from the Salisbury Police Department: Howard Miller of Salisbury was arrested after a traffic stop revealed that he had two outstanding warrants for his arrest. The arresting officer, A.L. Bouk, called in a dog because he believed he smelled marijuana on Miller. Police found .7 grams of marijuana on Miller. Miller was charged with simple possession and arrested as a result of the outstanding warrants. Both warrants were issued for failure to comply. • L.A. Murph’s Fine Cooking at 1532 W. Innes St. in Salisbury reported that a customer may have stolen $350 from a cash register Thursday. • Kanibhai Patel, 25, of Salisbury reported that his vehicle was broken into and someone made off with his CD player. • Murphy’s Express at 1010 Freeland Drive in Salisbury reported that beer was stolen from the convenience store. • Ronald Wilkerson reported that his credit card was stolen from his residence in Woodleaf and used at Country Cupboard on Tuesday.

On a mission in Rowan Laurels to the youths and sponsors participating in the Group Work Camp project doing home repairs for senior citizens and others this week in Rowan County and Kannapolis. The local crew, which is being hosted by Mount Zion United Church of Church in China Grove, is one of numerous groups that are deployed across the country through the Christian-based, interdenominational Group Works Camp program based in Colorado. The program has been active since 1977, performing thousands of home repairs such as carpentry, roof and siding repair, wheelchairramp construction and weatherization. Sometimes people ask why so many groups send mission trips to foreign countries, when there’s a need for that kind of outreach here at home. The Group Work Camps are one answer to that question, providing a meaningful summer experience for many young people while rendering valuable assistance for individuals in the community. Learn more about the program at • • • Dart to the potential health threats related to the early summer heat wave gripping the region. When the mercury nears the triple digits, it isn’t just uncomfortable; it can be life-threatening for the elderly, infants and children and those who suffer from chronic medical conditions. So far, few heat-related problems have been reported in the area. But as sweltering conditions persist, take precautions if you fall into one of the more vulnerable groups or engage in strenuous activities outdoors or in high heat conditions. Although we tend to worry about violent weather events such as tornadoes or floods, heat stress is is far deadlier. Historically, excessive heat kills more people in the United States each year than hurricanes, lightning, tornadoes, floods and earthquakes combined. • • • Laurels to some encouraging news on the job market front. Rowan County’s unemployment rate dropped a tenth of a percent in May, falling to 11.8 percent. Admittedly, that’s an incremental change in the overall employment picture, but more encouragement came in a survey showing that many North Carolina businesses expect to increase their hiring over the next month or so. Here in Rowan, Magna Composites and Boral have announced expansion plans that will put more people to work. The addition of a couple of hundred jobs doesn’t sound like a lot when you’re looking at doubledigit unemployment numbers. In this stuttering recovery, however, every additional job counts — especially for the person who gets hired.

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

“There’s no use talking about the problem unless you talk about the solution.” — Betty Williams

Moderately Confused

Lost your job? Please fill this pparently, the mere thought of issuing unemployment checks to the nation’s jobless now acts as a diuretic for many of our elected leaders. Well, I suppose it’s more of a diuretic by proxy. The politicians themselves don’t feel the urge to go, but they would very much like people who don’t have jobs to fill a lab cup on command. We last saw this phenomenon about a year ago. Lawmakers around the country suddenly began offering a stream of bills to require recipients of unemployment or welfare payDARYL ments to undergo periodic drug tests. LEASE My favorite plan was offered up by a state senator who represents my old home district in Florida. He wanted one of every 10 people filing for unemployment benefits — even workers recently laid off — to provide a urine sample before they could collect a check. And, best of all, he wanted them to cover the $30 cost of the tests. Now, there’s some logic behind this desire to ensure recipients of unemployment and welfare checks are clean and sober. Certainly, none of us likes the idea of people using tax dollars to roll a doobie or cut snortable lines of cocaine. It’s inconsiderate, to say the least. But the timing of these test proposals is rather odd. The latest politician dispensing cups is Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who recently added drug tests to a bill to extend unemployment benefits for folks who’ve been out of work for more than 26 weeks. He says people who fail the screening will be sent for treatment. But America has never been known for its generosity in funding drug treatment programs. As a matter of public policy, we prefer addicts to pull themselves up by their bootstraps — no matter how many swings and misses it may take before they find their bootstraps. The sudden interest in getting people into treatment rings a bit hollow. And why mandate tests now, during the worst recession in decades? Isn’t it “punitive and petty” — as Rep. Barbara Mikulksi, D-Md., puts it — to demand tests for people who’ve been laid off, as if substance abuse had something to do with their troubles? And isn’t it a bit redundant and wasteful to require tests?



Nowadays, folks who are lucky enough to find a job are likely to have to undergo a test as a condition of employment. Senator Hatch, one of many small-government advocates worried about the cost of extending the unemployment aid and running up the federal deficit, doesn’t see anything contradictory in proposing new expenditures for tests and counseling. Hatch contends the program will pay for itself. But, as The Washington Post’s Ezra Klein notes, “How many urine samples can a small government process?” Potentially, there would be 15 million little cups, if everyone receiving unemployment insurance or welfare had to take the tests. With this proposal, there’s also a disturbing undercurrent of rhetoric that implies the unemployed are to blame for being jobless for so long. Consider Sharron Angle, the tea partier who won the GOP nomination to run against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada this fall. (Are these two really the best the state has to offer?) Angle told a TV station back home that “you can make more money on unemployment than you can going down and getting one of those jobs that is an honest job, but it doesn’t pay as much. ... We really have spoiled our citizenry.” Spoiled? That’s news to Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., not to mention a long line of unemployed Americans. “You’ve got millions of people out of work, and the idea is that they all have a clever scheme that they’re going to live high off the hog on unemployment. People are losing their houses because of unemployment,” Miller recently told The Hill newspaper. “So you think what? That this is a good thing? ‘Unemployment check, I’m losing my house, this is cool’?" Fortunately, there are folks in both parties who seriously doubt the jobless are gaming the system. “Listen,” Rep. Steven LaTourette (R-Ohio) told The Hill, “with the state of the economy and the absence of jobs, I don’t think that there’s this huge pool of people out there that says, ‘Oh boy, now I (don’t have to look) for a job for another few weeks.’ I think that’s cynical.” Yeah, a wee bit. • • • Daryl Lease s an editorial writer for The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Va.

‘E-NC Authority’ would wire up those on welfare


Venerable resident’s demise a great loss for Spencer I would like to know the real reason our leaders decided to cut down and eliminate one of the oldest residents in our town. I would bet that she was already close to two centuries old when our town was incorporated in 1905. When I first heard that the town was going to cut it down, I examined the tree and it looked healthier at her old age than anyone I know of in town trying to decide what to do with her. She was trimmed beautifully and had a few dead limbs that could have easily been taken out without problems. I asked all the workers taking her down if they agreed with the decision to bring it down, and not one agreed. They were just doing their job and did a great job bringing her down. I just hate there wasn’t anything that old tree could do to defend herself. From what I understand, the city didn’t make any effort to sell the lumber to recoup expenses to the taxpayers. Lots of people wanted wood for their fireplaces. Some wanted sections to make tables, bowls or whatever to preserve some of the past. I even jokingly suggested they leave the base and let the carvers do a statue of our mayor. Samuel Spencer would be more appropriate. Now, every time I pass the Library, I will still see that great part of Spencer that I am sure would have outlasted any resident living. How I wish trees could talk. — John Patterson Spencer

From Republican political consultant Carter Wrenn, blogging at A while back President Obama’s administration was giving cell phones to people on welfare and, now, state Sen. Doug Berger has sponsored a bill to have the “E-NC Authority” provide broadband Internet service to the same folks. It is unclear how hardpressed welfare recipients will get computers. Senator Berger’s bill may be seen as an example of the mystery of government logic. Or as an example of values in the modern age. Surely the poor have greater needs than broadband Internet service. Here in North Carolina we have liberals – like Senator Berger – voting to cut Medicaid (medical care to the poor) then turning around and in a burst of compassion giving the poor the Internet. It’s hard not to wonder if Senator Berger’s understanding of the needs of struggling families isn’t a bit out of kilter. Last year Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Lanier Cansler won the boondoggle of the year award by giving a handicapped man with a drug problem $38,000 in crab pots to set him up in the fishing business. Senator Berger has the inside track to win the award this year for most unusual use of taxpayers’ money.

f I had a nickel for every time I did something that I knew for sure I was going to regret, I’d have a whole lot of nickels. “Are you sure you want to do this?” she asked. I took a deep breath. “Yes,” I said. “I am sure.” “Really sure?” I swallowed hard. “Yes,” I said, “I’m ready.” “OK,” she said. “But are you absolutely SHARON ...” RANDALL “Just do it!” And with that she picked up a razor and sliced off 10 inches, give or take, of my hair. For some people, haircuts are a way of life. Not me. If I had a nickel for every time I’ve cut my hair — not just trimmed it, but really whacked it, as I did last week — I’d barely have a quarter. When I was in fourth grade, my hair had never been cut. It fell in long, sweaty waves all the way to my waist. At recess, when we played Red Rover, my head would get so hot I feared it might burst into flames. One Sunday, my grandfather, an occasional Baptist preacher, had me stand up in church to illustrate his sermon on what the Good Lord meant when he said a woman’s hair is her glory. I didn’t know what “glory” meant. Maybe some kind of fire? After church, I asked my mother. She rolled her eyes. “It means your granddaddy is crazy about long hair, but he’s not the one who has to comb it.” The next day, she took me to her friend Kitty, who did hair for a hobby, and told her to give me a style called a “pixie.” Kitty kept snipping until she stood ankle-deep in a pile of my hair. Then she spun me around to face the mirror. Except for a lack of freckles or marionette lines around my mouth, I looked just like Howdy Doody. “Well,” said my mother, “at least it’ll be easier to comb.” My sister hooted. “I’ll make you a sign saying you’re a girl!” Kitty was kinder. “Don’t worry, honey. It’ll grow out.” When my granddad saw me, he broke down and bawled like a branded calf. He never got over it. Twenty years later, the day he died, he was still carrying my long-haired fourthgrade school picture in his Bible. I felt bad about that. But I sensed even then what I’ve come to believe: You can’t wear your hair (or choose your friends or live your life) to please someone else, not even your favorite granddaddy. Especially in summer when the back of your neck gets hotter than the hinges on the gates of hell. Still, for most of my life, I’ve worn my hair shoulder length or longer, except for rare occasions like last week when I decided, once again, to cut it. Unlike Kitty, Julia is a pro, someone I would trust with my life, and even with my hair. She did a fabulous job. Everybody in the salon said so. “You should wear your hair that way forever.” “It makes you look younger.” “It’s very Meg Ryan.” Forever? Younger? Meg Ryan? “It’s different,” said my husband. “I like it.” That evening we went to see Sting in concert. When Sting sang “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic,” I had the silly notion that he was singing just to me. Before bed, I stood at the bathroom mirror brushing my teeth and running my fingers through my hair. I had to admit. It was a little Meg Ryanish. Drifting off to sleep, I felt my face smiling into the pillow. Slept like a baby. The next morning I woke up and stared in the mirror. Meg Ryan was gone. Howdy Doody was back. And his marionette lines were deeper. Oh, well. My hair will grow out eventually. At least, it’s easier to comb. And my sister, no doubt, will be very happy to make me a sign that says I’m a girl. • • • Sharon Randall writes columns for Scripps Howard News Service. Contact her at


BRIEFS Couple to open medical office on West Innes BY SHELLEY SMITH

A husband and wife, both doctors, are building a 9,000 square foot building near the intersection of West Innes and Ackert streets in Salisbury. The building, which is being designed and constructed by Summit Developers of Salisbury, is being built to combine both of their practices into one convenient location. Dr. Chet Amin, a family physician, and his wife, Dr. Hetal Patel, a dentist, will occupy a good portion of the building, but will leave 2,700 square feet of space open, to possibly rent out. According to David Hartman, senior project manager of Summit Developers, he and Paulie Estrada, the job superintendent, are working on the building together, which is scheduled to be complete by or before February of 2011. “They will occupy separate doctor’s offices,” Hartman said. “It’s going to be a nice facility.” Amin’s practice is currently located at 1710 W. Innes St., and Patel’s is located a few blocks away at 114 N. Link Ave. The two could not be reached for a comment Friday, and it is unknown if either practice will accept new patients once the new offices open. Contact Shelley Smith at 704-797-4246.

Faith board to hold special meeting The Faith Town Board of Aldermen will hold a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday to discuss year-end finances.

Blood supplies reach critically low levels The supply of types O negative and B negative blood at the American Red Cross has dropped to critically low levels. Type O negative blood is always in high demand because it can be transfused to patients with any blood type, especially in emergency situations. Type O negative donors are needed to help prevent the fragile type O negative blood supply from reaching a crisis level. “While all blood types are needed during the critical summer months, we urge those eligible donors with O negative and B negative blood types to make and keep appointments to give blood this summer,” says Joyce H. Brendel, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross Carolinas Blood Services Region. “You can make the difference between an adequate blood supply and a summer shortage.” Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. The Red Cross Carolinas Blood Services Region provides lifesaving blood to 103 hospitals and must have 1,600 people give blood and platelets each weekday to meet hospital demand. Accident victims as well as patients with cancer, sickle cell disease, blood disorders and other illnesses receive lifesaving transfusions every day. There is no substitute for blood and volunteer donors are the only source. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission), meet weight and height requirements (110 pounds or more, depending on their height) and are in generally good health may be eligible to give blood. Bring your Red Cross blood donor card or a photo ID when you come to donate. Donors who give blood July 1 through Sept. 30 may enter a drawing to win a $1,000 gift card.

Budget talks likely to keep on into weekend

2:00 PM Monday Summersett Mem. Chapel Visitation: 1-2:00 PM Monday

RALEIGH (AP) — House and Senate negotiators are expected to keep horse trading into the weekend to attempt to hammer out final details on the North Carolina government budget for the new fiscal year. Democrats met on Friday and made little progress by the late afternoon. Sen. Linda Garrou of Winston-Salem said there were differences on public education and criminal justice programs. They hadn’t agreed what to do about a taxpayer-funded tuition subsidy for out-of-state athletes who attend University of North Carolina schools. Rep. Mickey Michaux of Durham said the negotiators also must fill a $525 million gap in the roughly $19 billion budget because extra Medicaid money from Congress isn’t coming for now. Michaux said the two sides would resume today.

RALEIGH (AP) — A recall of bagged spinach prompted by tests in North Carolina has expanded to additional states and product brand names. Lancaster Foods of Jessup, Md., announced on Friday the voluntary recall includes spinach sold under the names Krisp-Pak, Lancaster Fresh, Giant and America’s Choice. The produce is sold in 8, 10 and 12-ounce packages with “best enjoyed by” dates of June 19 through June 27. The recall includes spinach sold in North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. In tests this month, the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services found Listeria.

a giant grocery cart was an eye catching sight at the China Grove Farmers Market.

FARM FroM 4a “It’s a dream,” she said. Mayor Don Bringle said the farmers market was a way to grow the town’s economy, as well as a draw for visitors and residents. Vendors said that business had been good. “We’ve sold three hanging baskets and three pounds of blackberries,” Crystal Allen of Tranquility Farms said an hour and a half after the market opened. She and husband David Allen had a selection of flower baskets, aloe plants, spider plants and others grown on their Mooresville farm. “Today’s been a good day,” Crystal said.

SIDEWALK FroM 4a Elder White said that although the sidewalks were not part of the Greenway system, they will act like greenways, connecting neighborhoods and major roads. “The whole idea was to connect neighborhoods to that park,” she said. “It’s good for us and it’s good for

Laura Miller, of Miller’s Produce, is a veteran of other farmers markets in Concord and Kannapolis. She said the new market is a good addition to the local scene. “It’s a tight community. Everybody’s like one big family in China Grove,” Miller said. John Herron, who helps run Landis Gourmet Mushrooms, agreed: “It’s long overdue,” he said. “It’s a place to socialize, to see what the other neighbors are doing,” James Bell said. Reich said that the Market at the Mill is one of about six markets he’ll help to open this season. He said North Carolina has seen a steady growth in both the number of farmers markets and the demand for them.

“It brings people to the town,” Reich said. Part of that has to do with people wanting to eat more healthy foods and know where their food is coming from. More than that, it provides old-fashioned togetherness and family fun. Goodman, who volunteers his time to manage the market in addition to his work at Goodman Farm Supply, said he had the best job at the market. He served slices of homegrown watermelon fresh from the cooler, and watched kids line up for a seed-spitting contest. “I’m corrupting the youth of today,” Goodman said as the kids competed to see who could spit a seed the farthest. “It’s beautiful.”

the children. It’s easy for mom to grab the little ones, stick them in the stroller, and go down the sidewalk. “It will hopefully encourage people to get our of their cars and enjoy the park.” Statesville Boulevard’s sidewalks are also going to be much safer for pedestrians. Powers said residents along the road and in the neighborhoods worried about pedestrian safety. “A lot of people were already walking on the shoul-

der and sometimes in the road,” Powers said. “These sidewalks should provide a safer route and give people who want to walk, the ability to. Before, they would get in the car and drive. “The more people you get to walk, the better the air quality will be. And the more options people have to walk, the better. A lot of people walk because it is a necessity.” Contact Shelley Smith at 704-797-4246.

1st lawsuit filed over Cape Cod wind farm plans BOSTON (AP) — Environmental and watchdog groups on Friday filed the first legal challenge to a wind farm off Cape Cod since federal agencies gave final approval to the project, alleging that the 130 turbines planned for Nantucket Sound will endanger protected migratory birds and whales. A lawsuit filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., alleges that required scientific studies were not done and that mandated protective measures were ignored. It also alleges that the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service violated the Endangered Species Act, Migratory Bird Treat Act, and National Environmental Policy Act. Since the nation’s first offshore wind farm was given final approval in April by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, opponents have promised to mount legal challenges to block it. Groups filing the first lawsuit include the Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) and Cetacean Society International. The groups say federal agencies refused to adopt recommended protective measures for the endangered roseate tern and the threatened piping plover, including shutting down turbines during peak migration periods. They also accuse federal officials of refusing to prepare a supplemental environmental impact statement after receiving new information that a large aggregation of the endangered North Atlantic Right Whale was in the area. “The approvals were based upon scientific misconduct to the detriment of wildlife,” said Jeff Ruch, executive director of PEER. “One small indication of that is that government scientists indicate that two federally listed birds may be driven to extinction, yet those concerns were not reflected in any of the official agencies’ documents.” Terri Edwards, a spokeswoman for the Northeast office of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, said the agency “did a thorough evaluation of the biological effects of the project based on the best available science.” She did not comment on specifics of the lawsuit, saying the agency had not had a chance to review it. A spokesman for the Department of the Interior said the agency, as a matter of policy, does not comment on pending litigation.

RATE FROM 1a might be over the very near term,” Holmes stated in a press release. “We were pleased to learn that the employers contacted had about 2,000 position types — representing about 4,000 jobs — they were seeking to fill over the next 45 days. Obviously, we were excited to get this news.” Davis confirmed Holmes’ statement, and said her office recently contacted employers, and there will be new hires for Rowan County in the next few months. “We heard some very positive information from employers,” she said. “Some employers were more positive than others, but we did have some saying they would be hiring in the next few months.” Davis urged people looking for jobs to take advantage of what her office has to offer. On Monday, she said, the office had 374 appointments with people looking for a job, people coming in about unemployment, and people coming in with training inquiries. Davis said the office paid out more than $111 million in unemployment between June 2009 and May 2010 to Rowan County’s unemployed. In May 2010, the office paid out $3.7 million, and in May 2009 the office paid Rowan’s unemployed nearly $5.5. million “It’s actually a little less this year than it was then (in 2009), but these are still pretty big numbers,” she said.

‘the Andy Griffith show’ has its 50th anniversary this year, and First baptist Church in salisbury continues to find spiritual meaning in the show.

The Mayberry Mystique B Y T HE R EV. R OD K ERR For The Salisbury Post

I miss Mayberry Sitting on the porch drinking ice-cold Cherry Coke Where everything is black and white. Picking on a six string Where people pass by and you call them by their first name Watching the clouds go by. — Arlon Smith


his year Mayberry turns 50 years old. October 3 will be the 50th anniversary of the premiere of “The Andy Griffith Show.” There will be big doin’s on the TV Land Network this Fall and tens of thousands will gather in September just a little north of here in Mt. Airy for what may indeed be the biggest of their annual Mayberry Days. What is it about this show and these characters that make us feel like they are our nextdoor neighbors? The show consistently ranked in the top 10 television shows for the eight seasons it ran. It has had perpetual mass appeal in its syndication and, since its debut, it has never been off the air. All that said, one wonders, “What is the big draw to this simple series about a widowed sheriff of this small fictional town in North Carolina?” Why does it continually come up in conversations when people all over the world speak, not only of the South but of a particular way of life in small town America? All you have to do is mention a loaded goat, a rock-throwing rube and “kerosene pickles” and people will immediately begin reciting lines from the scripts. Mayberry was not the product of a simpler time. On the screen the world of Mayberry was where everybody went to church on Sundays and then

went home to eat roast beef or fried chicken. It was where even 8-year-olds like Opie Taylor could walk home from school by himself and even drop by Walker’s Drug Store to ask Miss Ellie to fix him an ice cream cone or where a big day for Barney was going to the picture show in Mt. Pilot after supper at the Bluebird Diner. Despite the homespun and folksy quality of the show, the times that birthed the series were tumultuous. Mayberry’s problems and stressors were anything but the problems and stressors that most faced in the 1960s. Just look at the events of the two weeks following the show’s premiere: The next day Eastern Airline Flight 375 crashed moments after takeoff from Boston, killing 62 of 72 people on board. In a famous protest, Nikita Krushchev removed his right shoe and pounded it on a table at the United Nations in a heated debate on the Soviet Union’s policy in Eastern Europe. Madelyn Murray withdrew her 14-year-old son from Woodbourne Jr. High rather than allowing him to continue to participate in the daily Bible reading, sparking a series of constitutional dilemmas. A bomb exploded in Times Square, injuring 33 people. It was the third such attack in 11 days More than 3,000 people were killed in Bangladesh in a tsunami. In Atlanta, the Rev. Martin Luther King was arrested along with 280 students for taking part in a lunch counter sit-in at Richs Department Store. The show was not so much about reflecting or projecting reality. The serenity of Mayberry was seemingly uninfluenced by the hardness of the day. Mayberry was like the eye of a hurricane, a place of calm and tranquility in a world of seismic social changes. Mayberry was not an escape as much as it was a place of sanctuary. The show never hid

Mayberry was like the eye of a hurricane, a place of calm and tranquility in a world of seismic social changes. the fact that people could be petty and cruel, insecure and even heartless at times. There was pride, prejudice and poverty seen in the episode “Opie’s Charity.” The character of Malcolm Tucker reminded us of the danger of stress and hurry. Anger and rebellion were the themes of “Opie and the Spoiled Kid.” In the most serious episode of the entire eight seasons “Andy on Trial,” disrespect for authority and revenge was evident when J. Howard Jackson ordered Jean Boswell to go to Mayberry and dig up all the dirt on the sheriff. Unemployment and financial difficulties were at the heart of “Andy Forecloses” as Ben Weaver demands Andy serve an eviction on Lester Scobey and his wife Helen so that he could use the property as a warehouse for his department store. The weekly visit to Mayberry was like going home to a place we had never been before. It really never existed, except in our hearts. It was like ‘the good old days’ that never really were. It existed not so much in memory but in myth. Myth reminds us that there is a truth beyond reality, that there is a world or at least a time, when we can be truly human. It is a call to remind us who we really are, or could be. Andy was imperfect though wise, Barney was insecure yet compassionate. Aunt Bee proved to be headstrong yet merciful. Though hardly Milton or Tolkien, the writers crafted the scripts more like parables than allegories. The Mayberry Myth dances the edge between childish and child-like; it is simplicity without being simplistic, morality without the sermon. While it may be easily dismissed as escapism, that would not explain the enduring nature

of the adventures of Andy, Barney, Floyd and Gomer. The Mayberry Mystique is not so much about the place but a time. Mayberry is timeless — not “once upon a time” like a fairy tale or “once beyond time” like science fiction, but “once in time.” Mayberry is about the triumph of character over circumstance in the midst of our human frailties and fables. It is the moment when we can hope in the essential humanity of our neighbors as they can count on us. It is the moment when we can forgive others for not living up to our expectations of who they should be. It is the moment when we are humble enough to laugh at ourselves. And when you find yourself with others in those moments – Tell ’em Goober says ‘Hey.’ • • • First Baptist Church in Salisbury has a summer series underway titled “Mayberry Revisited: The Gospel According to Andy.” Sessions are Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m. in the First Ministry Center. Each session includes an episode of the original black and white programs as a “parable” for teaching biblical truths. There will also be trivia contests featuring church members dressed as the Mayberry characters to begin the studies at 6:15 p.m. The next big event in the series is on Wednesday, July 14, when Jeff Branch from Charlotte and the Mayberry Sheriff’s car will visit. Jeff does an impression of Howard Sprague (from the later episodes) all over the country. For more information contact the Rev. Rod Kerr at First Baptist, 704-633-0431.

“May there be peace within your walls… Peace be within you.” (Psalm 122:7-8) In 1979, the British rock group Pink Floyd released its classic album “The Wall.” This effort was a bold step for these artists who dared to tell an eccentric and uncomfortable KEN story about an REED overprotective mother, her inward turning son, along with the horrors of war and life itself. Song after song draws a singular picture of this young son as he slowly and methodically builds a “wall” around himself: a wall of protection and peace, a wall containing his anger and pain, a wall that is his and his alone. In the live concert performance of this story, a giant wall is built slowly (brick by brick) between the band and the audience. As the concert marches toward a conclusion, the barrier is fully in place. Then, during the last song, the wall crumbles. With all the drama of a summer thunderstorm and the symbolism of a new beginning, the musicians and singers are reintroduced to the audience. The wall is no more. Psalm 122, originally written to celebrate Jerusalem’s status as the house of the Lord, is offered as a prayer of peace within the security of the gates and walls of the holy city. This psalm has recently become a favorite of mine because the writer of this most holy prayer also speaks a word of peace in a way that touches us inside walls we create and walls that are created for us. Prior to surgeries, amid transitions and uncertainty, when difficult decisions are weighing heavy, when waves of anxiety crash within our hearts, I have found this psalm as a soothing prayer for those who are seeking peace of any kind (regardless of the existing wall). This ancient prayer of peace applies the ointment where it’s needed most. “May there be peace within your walls and security in your citadels. For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, ‘Peace be within you.’ (verses 7-8). Some walls are created by hands we cannot control: evidence of a broken, imperfect world. Some walls are created by our own hands: poor choices on our part (sin) and the reluctance to right our wrongs. Praying the holy words of Psalm 122 is a personal yearning for peace within our walls of sickness and disease; peace within our walls of loneliness and fractured relationships; peace within our walls of addiction and abuse; peace within our walls of sin and darkness; peace within our walls of forgiveness and healing. More than ‘peace’ is spoken here. It is God’s peace. A peace that comes as a gift from the one who created us. Our Lord Jesus Christ has broken down the wall of sin and dismantled the barrier that once separated us from God. In his death on the cross, we have received real peace in the forgiveness of our sins. And in his resurrection we receive real peace in the opportunity of a renewed life now that reflects Christ and, ultimately, eternal life with Christ. Regardless of the walls around us, we have the sure and certain hope of a Savior who offers peace within. May peace be within you and within your walls. Truly, that peace has found us in Jesus Christ. The Rev. Ken Reed is the pastor at Concordia Lutheran Church in China Grove.

Soak me in your laundry and I'll come out clean, scrub me and I'll have a snow-white life. Tune me in to foot-tapping songs, set these once-broken bones to dancing. Don't look too close for blemishes, give me a clean bill of health. God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life. Don't throw me out with the trash, or fail to breathe holiness in me. Bring me back from gray exile, put a fresh wind in my sails! Give me a job teaching rebels your ways so the lost can find their way home. Commute my death sentence, God, my salvation God, and I'll sing anthems to your life-giving ways. Unbutton my lips, dear God; I'll let loose with your praise. Psalm 51:7-15 THE MESSAGE

Delight and dismay in a double-fit deal

Bold, new ambitions could be awakened in you in the year ahead, getting you to try many new things you never dared attempt previously. More than a few will become favorite activities you'll enjoy for years to come. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Nothing will be resolved if you continue to drag your feet in doing something you dislike. If it involves making a bold decision, have faith in your judgment and do so without any regrets. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Two powerful generators could be in place today, enabling you to enhance your earning potential. One is your strong desire to succeed, and the other is the pride you take in your accomplishments. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Friends will applaud your organizational abilities when putting together something fun for all of them to do. When they hear about what you've got going, everyone will jump on your bandwagon. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — A turn of events might occur that will be exactly what is needed to stimulate the entire family into doing something together that everyone has been putting off for one reason or another. There will be no excuses. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don't wait on friends to think of something fun to do. Swing into action yourself as a self-appointed social director, and get everybody engaged in a favorite activity. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Concentrate your efforts on a situation that could either add to your holdings or enhance your career in a big, immediate way. Both are feasible and probable. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Anyone who attempts to challenge your authority would quickly discover you're not likely to take a backseat to anybody. You're a natural-born leader who knows how to get what you want. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Although some boldness on your part might be necessary for you to advance a commercial interest you're promoting, instinctively you'll know how to do it, and what the stakes require. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Because of your natural-born faculty for getting along with persons from all walks of life, you'll find new friends at every turn. More than one or two will become close pals. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Even if some of what is occurring around you may be a bit disturbing, it isn't likely to have any affect on what you want. You should easily be able to fulfill your lofty ambitions. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — You should find time to participate in activities that are invigorating both mentally and physically. If you can do so with a few of your favorite friends, all the better. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Do not allow yourself to be victimized by an existing condition that displeases you. Either avoid it altogether or take the bull by the horns and steer it in a new, fun direction. United FeatUre Syndicate

Wife struggles with husband’s alcoholism

BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

To end the week, here is a symmetrical deal from a social duplicate. First, look at the North hand. Your partner opens one heart, and West overcalls one spade. What is your plan? After you’ve decided, work out how to defeat five hearts by South and five spades by West. The North hand has only four losers: one in each suit. It is sensible to jump to four no-trump, Blackwood. If East stays quiet and partner shows three aces, bid six hearts; if he has two aces, pass out his fiveheart response; if he holds only one ace, correct to five hearts and hope no one doubles; and if he bids five clubs (zero or four aces), rebid five hearts — partner will not pass with four aces. To defeat five hearts, West has to lead his singleton diamond, under which East plays his jack as a suit-preference signal for spades. Then, when West takes the next trick with his heart ace, he must shift to a low spade. East takes his king and returns a diamond for West to ruff. And if you know any pair capable of that standard of defense, sign them up for your team. Suppose, though, that North cautiously responds four hearts, East bids four spades, and two passes follow. Now North should continue with five diamonds to show his second suit. Here, West would compete with five spades, and South might go to six hearts. To defeat five spades, though, North must

lead his singleton club. South should win with his ace, cash the diamond ace, and give partner his club ruff. When the deal occurred, three pairs won 11 tricks in hearts, one made five spades, and one made four spades.

Robert Redford wants artists to push government BALTIMORE (AP) — Robert Redford says notions that the arts are trivial or worthless are driven by “small minds.” The 73-year-old actor spoke Friday to about 900 attendees at an Americans for the Arts summit Friday in Baltimore. He called on them to dispel the “myths” holding back government arts funding. Recently, Redford founded the Redford Center in California to use the arts to push issues like clean energy. Redford started the Sundance Film Festival with a National Endowment for the Arts grant.

Dear Dr. Gott: I simply cannot understand my husband’s habitual drinking. I’m embarrassed, ashamed and frustrated, and we’re even considering divorce because of it. We are a well-educated couple. He’s a professional with a good job, and of DR. PETER all things, I’m a counGOTT selor. Wouldn’t you think I might be able to advise my own partner? Well, I guess not, because life is a mess, things are out of control, and what’s worse, my husband doesn’t even seem to know or care. He promises he will change but those promises have been broken so many times I have lost track. We have three wonderful children who have been damaged because of his habit. I try to help them understand, but they aren’t dumb. They can read between the lines. He knows right from wrong, so why on Earth can’t he see that he is rapidly destroying everyone and everything around him? The things that were important are just that — things. I have said a million times that I can’t compete with his first love, and I’m not referring to another woman in his life but the bloody alcohol. I’m backed up against the wall but hopefully not into a corner. Help!

Dear Reader: Alcohol can be a powerful addiction that can have devastating effects on both partners, their children, family and friends. Sadly, the person who needs the help is often the last to understand the complexity of the situation. Beyond that, the quantity of alcohol a person consumes and how often he or she consumes it is not nearly as important as the behavior that can follow and the results it can have on others. While the disease — and it is a disease — can be hidden or explained in countless ways, invariably it surfaces. Employers tire rapidly of the feeble excuses. The extended lunch hour so an employee can enjoy a couple of “needed” pops often results in unemployent. Missed meals or soccer games and the empty seat at dance recitals affect children more than the alcoholic can begin to imagine. Children become fearful of their friends finding out and tend to withdraw from their friends and family. Spouses make excuses for canceling dinners with family members and acquaintances. It’s simply a no-win situation — a powder keg waiting to explode. I am sure your pleas have fallen on deaf ears, so my recommendations may be difficult to handle. Your family needs help, and that help must start with you. Read your local newspaper to determine the nearest AlAnon meeting. Don’t be embarrassed about attending. Everyone there is in the

same boat. What is said there stays there, and you will realize you are not alone with the burden of an alcoholic. You will learn to cope, to find your own path. Your children can attend Alateen meetings to get themselves on the right path, as well. If you are more comfortable, you could start by participating in online or telephone meetings. When confronted by your partner, and you will likely be verbally accosted, explain that your pleading fell on deaf ears for too long and it was too painful to sit back doing nothing. You were powerless and needed to take a stand. A victim — and that’s just what you are — can then ask if his or her husband, wife, partner, son, daughter, parent or friend will consider seeing a counselor, get in-house professional rehabilitation, or attend AA meetings. There are facilities across the country that work in a professional manner with their residents. An alcoholic is an alcoholic is an alcoholic. There is no age limit, no ethnic pattern, no financial guideline, no educational group targeted — only broken promises, frustration and repeated heartbreak. Anyone can fall prey to this ghastly addiction. So there can be no excuses. If your suggestion fails, at least you will have tried your best and you will be stronger for making the effort. If it works, you will both have the ability to mend the relationship. You may feel as if

you could create world peace more easily than taking such steps, and that may be just the case. It isn’t an easy road, but for the mental health of everyone, it is necessary.

Six Decorating Secrets for Under $100

1. Give the front door a fresh coat of paint. If you live in a community with a homeowner’s association, you may be required to repaint the door in its original color. But if not, consider painting it red. Not only is it eye-catching and cheerful, red on a door is considered good luck in the ancient Chinese tradition of feng shui. 2. Add solar lights along flower beds or the walk leading up to your front door. Solar lights are not only eco-friendly, they create a gentle, welcoming glow at night. Most designs are as easy to install as pushing a stake into the ground. Buy them at a club or discount store and you may pay as little as $50

Go online for interactive open house maps and directions.

5. If your wood floor is scratched and shabby, or your carpet is stained and smelly, it’s unlikely you could refinish the floor or replace the carpet for less than $100. But you can paint the entire wood floor, or add a painted border for that price. It’s also possible to paint a design on the carpet, or rip it up and paint the wooden floor beneath it. You’ll probably need a gallon or two of paint, depending on the size of the room, so your costs will range around $50 to $75.

4. Add a decorative wallpaper mural. A favorite technique of interior designers, wallpaper murals can go virtually anywhere kitchen, bedroom, dining room, bath, or even on an outdoor patio. They’re easy to install, and you’ll find a range of murals by Environmental Graphics at - all for less than $100, and many for as little as $80.

6. Artwork is a great way to dress up any room. Create a meaningful, personalized gallery in your own kitchen by buying several frames in varying sizes and shapes at your local dollar, home goods or crafts store. Paint them all the same color and fill them with hand-written recipes collected from family members. Ask contributors to write out their favorite recipe on the paper of their choice - or provide them with eye-catching

paper and colorful pens. The days of redecorating for pennies may be long gone and big-ticket renovations are far in the future for many economy-stressed homeowners. But with some creativity, elbow grease - and less than $100 - it’s possible to make simple decorating changes that will help your home look like a million bucks. Courtesy of ARAcontent

From the front door to the back deck, simple, cost-effective improvements and decorator touches can enhance your enjoyment of your home or attract buyer interest if you’re trying to sell it. Here are six ideas for simple, easy, budget-friendly changes:

for a set of lights. 3. In the kitchen, give cabinets a good scrub. You may not realize how dingy accumulated grime can make wood cabinets appear. After you clean them, switch out old hardware with new, chic handles and pulls. With home improvement stores carrying a wide variety, it’s possible to replace all your kitchen cabinet hardware for well under $100.


(ARA) - You’ve been itching to renovate or redecorate, but it may be difficult to fund your grand dreams given the current economy. Gutting the master bath or completely upgrading the kitchen may be on hold for a while, but you can still make some decorating changes that will have a big impact - for less than $100 a project.

This was Ground Hog Day — South Rowan style, another bad day at the office for a team that’s won only twice at Newman. Afterward, it was outfielder Maverick Miles who voiced the majority opinion. “Whatever it was, it wasn’t enough,” he said. “It’s frustrating for all of us. I mean, we had a 3-0 lead. They were making errors all over the place and playing bad. And then they just

He seeminging pressed all the right buttons for five-and-a-half innings — and even made the correct call when he pulled 16-year old starting pitcher Weston Smith after five innings and a four-pitch, leadoff walk to Hayden Untz in the last of the sixth. “I didn’t bring my ‘A’ game,” Smith confessed after walking seven batters and plunking Luke Thomas in Rowan’s three-run fifth. “I don’t think I was pre-

Rowan 4 disappeared over the left-field wall at Newman Park, and a tense struggle between two of the top three teams in the Southern Division of Area III quickly became a demolition derby. “Zach Smith’s at the plate with a 3-1 count and the bases loaded, not a good situation to be in,” South coach Michael Lowman said. “He’s one of the top three hitters in our league — maybe the best hitter in the league — and what are you going to do with him?” Smith, a rising sophomore at Pitt Community College, is batting .457. He drove in six runs as Rowan beat South Rowan 14-4 by the 10-run rule on Friday. Rowan, which scored nine runs in the sixth, continued its long run of dominance against South at Newman Park, where it’s won 15 of the 17 meetings, including two playoff games in 1997.

Montoya on pole

Expectations high for USA

LOUDON, N.H. — Juan Pablo Montoya has found his groove at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Montoya turned a lap of 132.337 mph and won the pole in Friday’s qualifying — the second straight time he’ll start first at New Hampshire. Montoya won his first pole of the season after taking two last season. Montoya is looking for his first career NASCAR win on an oval. “We have been very close as a team to winning races,” he said. Starting first could help. He set a track record at New Hampshire last September to win the pole, and parlayed that into a thirdplace finish. “I think last year we were too conservative here against Mark Martin, but it was the beginning of the Chase and we thought we

RUSTENBURG, South Africa — For other countries, a second-round World Cup match is a big step. For the United States, today’s game against Ghana is so much more. The television audience back home could top the U.S. national team record of 13.7 million, set during the 1994 World Cup loss to Brazil. With a victory, the Americans would advance to a quarterfinal matchup versus Uruguay or South Korea on July 2 and match the farthest the U.S. team has advanced since the first World Cup in 1930. Confidence is soaring. “If we continue to build on the successes so far, we can go to the end,” coach Bob Bradley said Friday. The U.S. team made the 2-hour trip Friday northwest from Irene and checked into the Bakubung Bush Lodge, where the bus was

Right-hander Weston Smith had a one-hit shutout through four, Rowan was throwing it around, and South had scratched out three runs against Thomas Allen. “We were really fortunate only to be down 3-0,” Rowan coach Jim Gantt said. “South can hit and they missed some chances when one more key hit might have put us in a hole.

American sports fans have been focusing on soccer at an unprecedented level. Former President Clinton attended Wednesday’s game in Pretoria and chugged a postgame beer with captain Carlos Bocanegra.

n Minor leagues The Los Angeles Dodgers promoted Jerry Sands (Catawba) all the way from Low A-ball to Double-A Chattanooga, and he’s already pounded two homers for his new club.  Rudy Brown (South Rowan) won his pro debut on Thursday, pitching two scoreless innings as the Royals beat the Mariners 8-5 in the Arizona League. Brown pitched the fifth and sixth innings and struck out three • Hudson Valley center fielder Craige Lyerly (East Rowan, Catawba) got his first pro hit on Thursday when he lined an eighth-inning single to center in a 16-5 loss to Brooklyn.

Spain beats Chile Associated Press

The World Cup roundup ... PRETORIA, South Africa — David Villa and Andres Iniesta each scored as Spain beat Chile 2-1 on Friday at the World Cup, a result that sends both teams on to the round of 16. Villa got his goal on a shot from 45 yards out in the 24th minute, when goalkeeper Claudio Bravo came out of his area and cleared a ball straight to the Spain striker. Iniesta doubled the advantage by beating Bravo with a right-footed shot from the edge of the area in the 37th, with Marco Estrada ejected after collecting his second yellow card on the play. Spain finished at the top of Group H with six points and will play Portugal in the next round. Chile was second and will play Brazil. Switzerland was third and Honduras was last. Switzerland 0, Honduras 0 BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa — Honduras held Switzerland to a 0-0 draw in Group H of the World Cup on Friday, a result that knocked both teams out of the tournament. The Swiss could have locked up a spot in the second round with a two-goal win over Honduras. But Switzerland played with little urgency or creative flair until late in the match, and it couldn’t turn its domination of possession into quality scoring opportunities. Honduras almost stole a win in the 71st minute, but goalkeeper Diego Benaglio denied a wide-open Edgar Alvarez with a brilliant one-handed save. Brazil 0, Portugal 0 DURBAN, South Africa — Portugal reached the second round of the World Cup on Friday after a 0-0 draw with group winner Brazil as two of soccer’s most powerful offenses couldn’t score. Brazil had already secured advancement and won Group G with seven points, two more than Portugal. Ivory Coast, which beat North Korea 3-0, was third with four points. Ivory Coast 3, North Korea 0 NELSPRUIT, South Africa — Yaya Toure, Koffi Romaric N’Dri and Salomon Kalou all scored for Ivory Coast in a 3-0 win over North Korea at the World Cup, but the Elephants didn’t advance to the round of 16.

WIMBLEDON, England — Roger Federer looked perfectly fresh as he demolished Clement 6-2, 6-4, 6-2, playing like the old grasscourt master himself after being stretched to five sets in his first-round match and four in the second. Federer saved the only break point against him, hit 29 winners, made only 12 unforced errors and left Centre Court to a rousing standing ovation. “I get standing ovations 99 percent of the time — doesn’t matter if the performance was great or not so great,” he said. “I think they’re happy to see me, and they love tennis. ...

In women’s play, fivetime champion Venus Williams moved into the fourth round by beating Russia’s Alisa Kleybanova 6-4, 62.

WIMBLEDON, England — One day after winning the longest tennis match in history, John Isner lost the shortest men’s match at Wimbledon so far this year. Marathon man Isner looked weary from the outset Friday, required treatment for a neck injury and was beaten by unseeded Thiemo de Bakker of the Netherlands 6-0, 6-3, 6-2. The second-round match was over in just 1 hour, 14 minutes, and the five games won by Isner is the fewest by a male player this week. It was a complete turnaround from Isner’s epic three-day victory over Nicolas Mahut, which lasted 11 hours, 5 minutes and went to 70-68 in the fifth set.

What’s more, Isner served no aces Friday after hitting a record 112 against Mahut. “I’ve never been this exhausted before,” Isner AssociAted press said. “Mentally and physically, I was obviously a bit JOHN ISNER drained.

Rowan’s Zach Smith leans back as a Weston Smith pitch gets a little too close. Smith knocked in six runs.

SHAW FROM 1D pared for all of this. Sometimes I couldn’t find the strike zone. And I let little things get to me and maybe rattle my head.” That’s a dangerous face to show the shark-infested Rowan lineup. And rather suddenly, the offerings of Smith and his two immediate successors looked eerily like chum in the water. “We were ahead, but we never had control of the game,” Lowman insisted. “We left way too many men on base. We had some opportunities early to add on to that three-run lead. We could have broken it open.” Rowan starter Thomas Allen made sure they didn’t. He lived on the corner of Low & Away, routinely bluffing South into swinging at pitches that crossed below the knees, bathed in dirt. “I don’t think he was overpowering or anything,” said SR catcher Tyler Freeze, FREEZE who doubled off the wall in left-center and eventually scored South’s third run. “We just swung at a lot of ball-4’s. We were swinging at bad pitches. If we had just trusted our hands and done what we were supposed to do, we’d still be playing.” The game’s momentum switched lanes shortly after Preston Penninger relieved Smith on the mound and caught Wesley Barker looking at a called third strike. Moments later the bases were loaded for Rowan’s Zach Smith and his glow-in-the-dark bat. “I was hoping Penninger would make him hit into a

Weston Smith lasted into the sixth inning for South. double play,” Miles said. Wishful thinking at its best. Penninger instead fell behind in the count and was forced to deliver a tasty, 3-1 fastball that Smith blasted over the wall in left-center. “The mistake wasn’t the pitch,” Lowman said. “It was getting into a 3-and-1 count with Zach Smith up and the bases loaded. There was no place to put him. He’s probably the best hitter in the league and he did what he was supposed to do with it.” South’s Blake Houston had a front-row seat. “Preston left it up,” the do-it-all center-fielder said. “It was (Smith’s) count. He was sitting on the fastball and got the best of it.” With it, the drive took some of the air out of South’s rather remarkable, 14-4 season. “This may be the most difficult place to play,” Lowman said. “But in actuality, we’re still a game ahead of them in the standings. They’re chasing us. We’ve had this conversation before and I don’t like having it. Tonight they didn’t play well. They made five errors and gave us a lot of chances to score. Then, staring off into the distance, searching for the right words, he concluded, “And we didn’t do it. Maybe we can’t play well here.”

Allen’s pitch-count was getting up there because he was having to use so many pitches to get through their lineup.” But Weston Smith’s pitchcount was also rising, and Rowan finally got to him in the fifth. Wes Barker and Justin Morris singled and Preston Troutman walked to load the bases with none out. Zach Smith was the next hitter, and he drilled a tworun single that cleared the glove of leaping South second baseman Julio Zubillaga by inches to break the ice. Then Troutman scored on a passed ball for a 3-3 tie. Blake Houston’s two-out hit off winning reliever Alex Litaker scored Tyler Freeze in the sixth to put South back on top 4-3, but Rowan threatened to bat all night in the bottom half of the inning. The decisive half-inning started the way a lot of Rowan’s scoring innings start — with a leadoff walk to Hayden Untz. “Just any way on in that situation,” Untz said. “Weston is young, but he’s good and he’s going to get better.” It was the 33rd walk for Untz this season. Noah Holmes is second on the team with 18. That was also the seventh walk issued by Weston Smith and ended his night. Lowman turned to reliever Preston Penninger, who struck out the first man he faced but hit the second one. Troutman followed with a sharp grounder in the hole. South shortstop Gunnar Hogan smothered the ball with a great effort and came up throwing to third base, but he had no play. Untz was already sliding in. That filled the bases for Zach Smith, and Smith knows exactly what to do with a 3-1 fastball. He crushed it. “I was looking fastball all the way, got one on the inner half and put a pretty good swing on it,” Smith said. With that one swing in the sixth, a game that South had never trailed in, quickly

A $10,000 win for Snider family BY JORDAN HONEYCUTT

Something bigger than a baseball game took place at Newman Park Friday night. A total of $10,000 was raised for Patrick Snider, who is facing challenges that many of us will never be able to fathom. Snider, a Rowan Legion and North Rowan pitcher, was honored by the team before Rowan’s 14-4 win against South. Even though Rowan beat its rival, this was truly Patrick Snider’s night. Snider was diagnosed with testicular cancer earli-

er in the year. Snider was on hand, sporting a grin and his Rowan No. 7 jersey as Rowan athletic director Bob Lowman announced that funds were going to be taken up to aid the teenagr and his family in this unfortunate time in their lives. In a moment prior to the game, there may not have been a dry eye in the house. Lowman announced the fundraising efforts and Snider became visibly touched beyond control. He broke down in tears while receiving a hug from Lowman. “The community support

given to Patrick has been amazing. His friends, the newspaper, facebook, and everything that the Legion is doing tonight just warms our hearts,” said Jennifer and David Snider. I had my first chance to meet Patrick personally and walked away truly astonished at how courageous, respectful and appreciative this young man is for everything that is being done for him. “I just rely on my family, friends, teammates, and just go through my treatments — and above all, keep fighting,”said Snider. The funds raised Friday

night is just the start of great things to come for Patrick. Patrick is being treated by one of the best doctors in the country, Dr. Einhorn of Indianapolis, who treated and cured Lance Armstrong’s testicular cancer a few years back. One very neat thing is in Patrick’s near future. The Make-A-Wish foundation is sending him and his parents to meet his favorite major-league baseball team, the Atlanta Braves. “I’m really looking forward to meeting Chipper Jones. He is my favorite player,” added Snider.

Braves end losing skid ATLANTA — Billy Wagner added a Braves 3 big mileTigers 1 stone on his road to retirement. Wagner earned his 400th save, Brian McCann gave Atlanta the lead with a fourth-inning homer and the Braves ended a three-game losing streak by beating the Detroit Tigers 3-1 on Friday night. Wagner struck out the side in the ninth in his 16th consecutive appearance without allowing a run. He has 15 saves this season, including a string of 11 straight since his last blown opportunity. “I don’t think you draw it

up quite like that,” Wagner said. “It’s a fantasy-type situation. I got them swinging at some high pitches. I’ll take it because it doesn’t happen very often.” The 38-year-old Wagner is on such a roll that manager Bobby Cox, also bound for retirement after the season, suggested the closer might return for 2011. “He’s been dominating all season long, and maybe we can talk him out of retirement,” Cox said. “He’s been great.” “No chance,” Wagner said. Wagner plans to retire even though he has a $6.5 million option to play next season. He said he wants to spend more time with his family,

who traveled to Atlanta from Virginia for the game. “All today my kids were talking about coming to the game so they could see this, hoping I got the chance,” Wagner said. Wagner is fifth on the career saves list and is second among left-handers behind John Franco’s 424. McCann’s 100th career homer was one of the few mistakes made by rookie Andy Oliver (0-1) in his major league debut. The left-hander gave up five hits and two runs in six innings. “It was exciting,” said Oliver, a second-round draft pick in 2009. “It was a lot different from what I expected. I thought I’d be more nervous.

Billy Wagner picked up his 400th career save. “After the first pitch, I was all right. ... The biggest thing for me was that I wasn’t walking guys.” Detroit manager Jim Leyland said Oliver “was tremendous.” “He did a heck of a job,” Leyland said. “He showed composure throughout. He has poise. ... He gave us a chance to win.” Brooks Conrad added an eighth-inning homer.

The NASCAR notebook ... LOUDON, N.H. — Maybe the baseball part of Roush Fenway racing is rubbing off on Jack Roush. He’s churning through crew chiefs for Matt Kenseth like they’re late inning relievers. Jimmy Fennig is the latest to get the call from the bullpen to sit atop the pit box. Roush replaced Todd Parrott with Fennig on the No. 17 Ford this week, giving Kenseth his third crew chief this season. Parrott has returned to the research and development department. Kenseth has had four crew chiefs since Robbie Reiser moved into research and development role after the 2008 season finale. Who’s warming up? Roush, who owns four Sprint Cup teams, said a breakdown in communication and effectiveness led to the switch. Kenseth is seventh in the points standings, but has finished no better than 14th in the last three races after a fast start. Another sore point came last week at Infineon Raceway when the No. 17 had trouble getting through inspection. “We were a little slow in the garage area,” Roush said Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. “I don’t fault the guys for that, but the direction and the plan may not have been as well-defined or understood. “The combination of the plan not working as well as it needed to with the team, and the strategies not working as well as they had in the first few races with Todd resulted in our making the decision that the team wasn’t where it needed to be.”

MATT KENSETH Kenseth says he hopes an opportunity to “mix things up” will push the team in the right direction. “It does seem like I’m pretty hard on the crew chiefs lately, that’s for sure,” Kenseth said. Parrott replaced Drew Blickensderfer after the season-opening Daytona 500. Kenseth won the Cup championship with Reiser in 2003. Reiser was offered the chance at returning to his previous role, but declined for numerous reasons. Roush’s four teams are winless this season. Fennig, who a championship with Kurt Busch in 2004, is confident he can get the team back into Victory Lane. DANICA RETURNS LOUDON, N.H. — Danica Patrick can kick up her heels in style in her NASCAR return. Patrick received a pair of Yves St. Laurent platform heels just for showing up to race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Track general manager Jerry Gappens gave the IndyCar driver the shoes as a gift for running in the Nationwide Series race. Gappens said the shoes cost about $1,000. Small price to pay for the expected attendance spike Patrick’s presence will create for Saturday’s race. On Friday, Patrick downplayed expectations for her first NASCAR second-tier race since February. She said a top-15 or a top-20 finish would be a success. Patrick says she has to trust her instincts because it’s easy to feel overwhelmed in a different series.

Feuding drivers heat up

LOUDON, N.H. — Wrecks. Revenge. Name calling. Sounds like a recipe for a summer blockbuster coming to a theater near you. Instead, it’s just another week in the Sprint Cup series where tempers are flaring, drivers are feuding and payback lurks right around the next turn. Rivalries are heating up with the temperatures as only 10 races remain until the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field is set. Jeff Gordon might have to watch his bumper when the flag drops for Sunday’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He left last week’s race at Infineon Raceway as NASCAR’s most wanted for a series of overly aggressive moves on the track. One of those times led to a race-ending wreck for Martin Truex Jr. Truex was running inside the top 10 when Gordon spun him, causing him to drop back into traffic, where he was caught in a multi-car accident. Gordon took the blame for that one and left an apology this week on Truex’s voicemail. Truex has accepted the apology, and he wants Gordon to accept the fact that he’ll change the way he races the four-time champion from here on out. “The nice guy seems to always get pushed around and I’m tired of being the nice guy,” said Truex.” Truex vowed on his radio last week to seek revenge against Gordon. “There’s been times when Jeff’s

Martin and Ryan Newman round out the top five. Martin held off Montoya on a three-lap sprint to the finish last year in the Chase opener for his fifth win of the season. Montoya accused Martin of holding him up at the start of the second lap. Martin is in 11th place and trying to boost his spot in the standings as the summer heats up. “We saw that we closed that gap some today and we’re really looking forward to tomorrow to try to massage this thing a little bit more and maybe get a little more out of it,” he said.

caught me and ever even gave me the chance to get out of the way,” Truex said. “He just started running into me, and he’s the first guy to hang his middle finger out the window when he goes by you. “Things are going to change, that’s all I’m saying.” Truex might have to take a number. Gordon and Truex are only one simmering feud in a series where new disputes are seemingly popping up every week. Gordon angered Elliott Sadler, Kurt Busch and Greg Biffle last week. Busch finished 32nd last week and said contact from Gordon cut his right-rear tire. Gordon was unapologetic. Busch drew some laughs with his new nickname for Gordon. “There are a lot of guys in front of me that want to go talk to Jeff ’Bulldozer’ Gordon,” he said. Gordon knows he’s going to have to deal with retaliation eventually. “I’m going to deal with whatever comes my way,” Gordon said. Vince McMahon could have created a Wrestlemania card just off last week alone. Joey Logano was angry with Juan Pablo Montoya. Boris Said’s crew chief had a beef with Tony Stewart. Carl Edwards was furious a solid run was spoiled by road-racer Jan Magnussen. While some applaud the reborn aggressive style, others fear the sport is morphing into an out-of-control demolition derby for no good reason.

in the Chase field. With 10 races left until the Chase field is set, Montoya believes he can still find a way to get the No. 42 Chevrolet into competing for a championship. “We are miles ahead right now,” of last year, he said. “We have more top-10s, more top fives. We have a much faster race car than what we had last year at this point. But we had a blown engine. We got together with our teammate. We’ve been involved in I don’t know how many wrecks from other people.” Montoya has four topfives and eight top 10s this We buy small & large year, only to have those fintracts of timber. ishes offset by six in the 30s.
