Darrell Blackwelder of the Rowan Cooperative Extension Service looks over plants behind the Old Concord Road office.

Becoming director of Cooperative Extension not too much of a stretch for Blackwelder BY DEIRDRE PARKER SMITH

ecoming the director of the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service in Rowan County this June seemed like a natural progression for Darrell Blackwelder. He’s spent most of his working life here, starting as a horticulture agent in 1979, fresh out of graduate school at Clemson University. “It’s an easy fit for me,” Blackwelder says. “I’ve been here so long and I know so many people,” he laughs. Some people think he works at the Salisbury Post because of his weekly columns in the Home & Garden section. “And the staff was very supportive. I never would have done it if they hadn’t felt that way. I’ve been an agent for so many years and I know the staff and know how we all work together. I think that’s an


asset.” Blackwelder says his biggest challenge is balancing his role as horticulture agent and his role as director. He is the go-to guy for questions on horticulture, both commercial and urban, forestry, field crops (there’s a vacancy in that area), pesticides, insects, diseases. He jokes that if it comes out of the ground, he’s supposed to be able to answer the question. His other agents are Brad Johnson, who handles livestock; Toi Degree, consumer and family sciences; and Sara Drake, 4-H and youth. In addition to the calls and e-mails the Post forwards him, Blackwelder gets anywhere between four and 40 calls or emails a day, depending on the season. By 3 p.m. Tuesday, he’d already answered eight questions, and he wasn’t even in the office all day. “Some people say you don’t need exten-

sion anymore, because of the Internet, but my calls haven’t diminished. The radio and newspaper help, but I still get calls from people wanting to confirm what I wrote or said.” One of his constant efforts, as an agent, and now as director, is communication. Blackwelder loves the newspaper and is irritated when people complain that they don’t know about something. “I tell them, ‘It was in the newspaper yesterday. You need to read the newspaper.’ ” Blackwelder believes there’s no excuse for not knowing where to go or who to ask about garden questions. But he does say a lot has changed in extension since he started. They used to have lots of file cabinets full of bulletins to send out on certain topics; now they’re empty. Everything is online.


House, Senate OK commission to oversee Yadkin RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina legislators are establishing a commission to foster economic development that may also play a role in the state’s fight with Alcoa Inc. over resources along the Yadkin River. Lawmakers on Friday adopted legislation negotiated with Alcoa to create an entity whose main purposes will be to promote job creation and the natural resources within a region that includes Rowan, Davidson, Davie, Montgomery, Randolph and Stanly counties. The Uwharrie Resources Commission could also file lawsuits and own or lease property. The commission is a weaker replacement for a legislative effort last year to create a trust that could take control of four dams now operated by Alcoa if the state can block the company’s bid to get a new 50-year license. Meanwhile, Alcoa filed a public record’s request seeking the footage and records used in a North Carolina public television report about the company’s operations on the Yadkin River. Alcoa Energy President Rick Bowen said Friday the company wants to know who influenced the content of the piece aired by UNC-TV, which he believes was biased.

Hot spot teams of Salisbury Police officers will be saturating problem areas of the city this weekend and through the summer months. As many as four teams of two officers are used in the department’s ongoing efforts to deal with violence, vandalism and other crimes. The program has been ongoing, but it is getting renewed emphasis this summer. Deputy Chief Steve Whitley said Friday the extra manpower is expensive but so far it’s been successful. The teams concentrate in areas where reports show highest incidents of crime, including reports of gunfire, assaults, disturbances, drug activity and vandalism. The department produces a weekly map showing where the incidents occur, with the teams deployed to the area with the highest concentration of incidents. A hot spot team was seconds away from a shooting at the Square on June 27. A hot spot team was near the intersection of North Main and Council streets when the driveby shooting occurred. A witness ran to the middle of Main Street and flagged down the officers who went immediately to the vehicle with the victims, and also broadcast an alert for the shooter. While the incident had a tragic ending with two people dead, police had the suspect arrested and jailed within hours. John Curtis Lambert, 31, of Beverly Lane in China Grove, is in the Rowan County Detention


Teen charged in Menius Road fire A teenager has been charged with setting a fire Thursday afternoon at a house on Menius Road. Jeremy Hughes, 18, who lived at the 315 Menius Road home with his family, has been charged with second-degree arson. Investigators with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office and Fire Marshal’s Office said Hughes, who reportedly has autism, has been linked to other incidents involving fires. Hughes, who had a police style radio, used it to call 911 and report the fire around 4:30 p.m. According to a report from HUGHES Detectives Christine Brown and Adam Loflin, the boy had an argument earlier with his mother and other family members. The fire was reported shortly after they left home. Deborah Horne, county fire investigator, said the fire was set in a bale of hay on the back porch. Bostian Heights Fire Department responded to the fire, which was concentrated in the attic and the back porch of the single-story brick home. Several other fire departments responded to assist, including China Grove, South Salisbury, Rockwell Rural, Landis, Faith, Locke and the Rowan County Rescue Squad. While firefighters were working to extinguish the blaze, Hughes sat in the front yard holding the family’s pet, a fawn. The Hughes family had apparently rented the house for several years. Information on the owner, or amount of damage, was not available.

Did spy trade include a wife betrayed? YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) — Vicky Pelaez met her husband, Juan Lazaro — or so he called himself — some 30 years ago in her native Peru. She was a gutsy TV reporter, he a talented photographer and a karate black belt. “To her, he was a hunk,” a friend says. Soon, the two were married and living in a leafy New York suburb, raising a young son along with Vicky’s older one, proudly watching him develop into a talented pianist. And now, three decades later, with the family suddenly torn asunder, her lawyer says she likely never even knew Juan’s real name: Mikhail Vasenkov. It’s one of the more tantalizing mysteries to emerge from the spy saga that has entranced the world over the past 12 days: Could a wife be in the dark even as to her husband’s very name? And the broader question: PELAEZ Was Pelaez, deported Thursday in a spy swap along with her husband, an enthusiastic secret agent — who like him, was willing to put her loyalty to Moscow over that of her children? Or was she a wife betrayed? One thing was clear on Friday, hours after Pelaez, 55, and Vasenkov, 66, arrived in Vienna, en route to Moscow: A family was in tatters. In Yonkers, journalists was parked outside the family’s home, waiting to talk to the couple’s 17-year-old son, Juan Jr., and his stepbrother, Waldo Mariscal, 38, an architect. “I guess I feel sorry for the younger kid, unless he was in on it,” remarked a neighbor, Jim Carey. “We don’t really know if he knew anything.” As for the parents: “They have to live with what they did,” he said. Mariscal insisted he didn’t believe his parents were spies,and defended their character. “I don’t know about Juan’s relationship to Russia. He probably bought some seasoning from a Russian store,” Mariscal said. As for his mother: “The only Russian thing that she likes is vodka with passion fruit.” He said he didn’t know where he and his brother would end up living, though he said the teenager wanted to stay in the United States. He acknowledged the family would lose their home, since it was paid for by the Russians, but added: “My parents paid for this

Biden tells Leno U.S. did fine in the swap BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden had to convince a skeptical Jay Leno that the United States didn’t get a raw deal from Russia in the biggest spy swap since the Cold War. Leno asked Biden during a Friday taping of “The Tonight Show” why the U.S. was sending 10 accused spies back to Russia while getting only four in return. Biden assured Leno that “We got back four really good ones.” Leno then showed a sultry photo of alleged Russian agent Anna Chapman and asked: “Are our spies this hot?” Biden’s reply: “It was not my idea to send her back.”

house with their sacrifices since 1995.” A lawyer for the father noted that the sons had no income. “It’s very upsetting. They don’t know what to do next,” said Genesis Peduto. As for their parents, they had only 24 hours to decide whether to accept the “all-or-nothing” deal to go to Moscow or face years behind bars, said Pelaez’s lawyer, John Rodriguez. He said Pelaez plans to go back to Peru, where her family has a ranch, and where she hoped to continue writing for El Diario La Prensa, a Spanish-language newspaper. The whirlwind spy exchange took place Friday in a choreographed script at an airport in Vienna. Ten Russian sleeper agents arrested in the U.S. were exchanged for four prisoners accused by Russia of spying for the West. The swap idea was Washington’s, first raised with President Barack Obama nearly a month ago when the FBI and Justice Department officials who had been watching the 10 Russian agents hiding in suburban America for over a decade informed the president it was time to start planning their arrests, according to two White House officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity. The four Russians accused of spying for the West were sprung from dismal Russian prisons. It was unclear where they planned to settle.

RALEIGH (AP) — The General Assembly worked largely in private Friday to finalize key ethics and economic incentives bills before House and Senate leaders close the session for the year, probably early today. The two chambers recessed for several hours while a handful of lawmakers sought compromises on competing bills while holed up in conference rooms or around tables in back hallways of the Legislative Building. Leaders also were tying to agree on the details of legislation to let police take DNA samples of people when they are arrested on serious charges. Senate leader Marc Basnight, D-Dare predicted that the final details on an ethics, campaign finance and government reform package probably would be worked out until Friday night. The two sides had to find accord on how best to address concerns that campaign donations affect how elected officials appoint board and commission members or make contract decisions.

Quality of life: Dose of laughter could help take away your pain Sacramento Bee

So he tells the group members to gird for a brief but restorative session of mirth. He has them extend an imaginary string with both hands across their mouths and says to raise it a bit and laugh. “Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha ... ” “OK, that was a nice and easy warmup,” Stephenson said. “I don’t want to hear belly laughs yet. Just keep your teeth closed and do two more.” “Ha-ha-ha ...” “Now, I want you to really let it rip, OK?” “HA-HA-HA-HA-WHOA-

HA-HA-HA ...” Laughter reigned. The whole vibe of the room changed from sorrow to joy, at least for a minute. Everyone was smiling and chuckling after Stephenson finished and dismissed the group. “This has really helped me,” said Haynes, who is unable to work because of a chronic back condition. “And it’s fun to do.” Research looking at the connection between mind and body suggests that repeated doses of laughter can indeed lead to positive physical changes.

Tighter-fitting cap in works for Gulf well NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The BP oil leak could be completely contained as early as Monday if a new, tighter cap can be fitted over the blown-out well, the government official in charge of the crisis said Friday in some of the most encouraging news to come out of the Gulf in the 2 1⁄2 months since the disaster struck. If the project planned to begin this weekend is successful, it would simply mean no more oil would escape to foul the Gulf of Mexico. The well would still be busted and leaking — workers would just funnel what comes out of it to tankers at the surface. The hope for a permanent solution remains with two relief wells intended to plug it completely far beneath the seafloor. “I use the word ‘contained,’ ” said retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen. “ ‘Stop’ is when we put the plug in down below.” Crews using remote-controlled submarines plan to swap out the cap over the weekend, taking advantage of a window of good weather after weeks of delays from choppy seas. The cap — dubbed “Top Hat Number 10” — is designed to fit snugly and catch all the escaping oil. During the installation, the gusher will get worse before it gets better. Once an old cap is removed, oil will pour into the Gulf unhindered for about 48 hours while the new one is put in place, Allen said.

Suicide bombers kill 62, wound 111 in Pakistani tribal area PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A pair of suicide bombings killed 62 people Friday outside a government office in a region along the Afghan border where the Pakistani army and U.S. missiles have had some success in decreasing the number of such attacks. The assault, which wounded at least 111 people, was one of the deadliest in Pakistan this year. The attackers struck within seconds of each other as two U.S. senators met with Pakistani leaders in the capital, Islamabad, to discuss their countries’ cooperation in the fight against terrorism. At least one bomber was on a motorcycle. The bombers detonated their explosives near the office of Rasool Khan, a deputy Mohmand administrator who escaped unharmed. The tribal elders, including those involved in setting up militias to fight the Taliban, were in the building, but none was hurt, according to Mohmand chief administrator Amjad Ali Khan.

Boat, second body pulled from Delaware River in Philadelphia PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police retrieved a second body from the Delaware River after they recovered the duck boat that was struck by a barge and capsized, leaving two young Hungarians missing. Authorities did not immediately confirm whether the body was that of 20-year-old Szabolcs Prem. He has been missing since Wednesday’s accident, which also claimed the life of 16-year-old Dora Schwendtner. Her body was recovered early Friday nearly two miles downriver from the accident site. The second body surfaced from beneath a salvage barge after crews raised the amphibious tour boat from the river bottom. A police boat pulled the body on board about a block downriver from where it surfaced. Thirty-five other people were rescued after the 250-foot barge ran over the duck boat.

Talk turned serious — painfully so, at times — during the two hours of a Proactive Pain Solutions class at Sacramento’s Mercy Midtown Medical Building. Dr. Topher Stephenson, sitting ramrod-straight in the physician’s archetypal white coat, knitted his brows and focused his empathetic brown eyes on three patients, one using a cane and another wearing a back brace. Chronic pain not only can affect the physical, the patients explained, it can decimate quality of life. At one point, patient Eric Haynes couldn’t help but cry. “I’m just trying to deal with the pain and keep going,” he told the group. “I don’t want to do anything. ... But I don’t want to give up on life, either.” On it went, sad stories of lives turned upside down, while Stephenson and Mercy behavioral health coordinator Pat Hanson offered soothing words and concrete coping skills. But near the end of the session, Stephenson looked at his watch and decided what everybody needed was a good laugh. Seriously. Stephenson, who specializes in physical medicine and runs the spine program at Mercy in Sacra-

Loma Linda University in Southern California have documented the effects of laughter in double-blind studies. In a paper presented at the April meeting of the American Physiological Society, they found that the hormones beta-endorphins (which elevate mood) and human growth hormone (which builds immunity) increased significantly in patients exposed to “mirthful laughter.” Another study by the same doctors found that laughter reduced three key stress hormones — cortisol, epinephrine and dopac — by 38 percent to 70 percent. Significantly high levels of those three hormones have long been linked to compromised immune systems. Stephenson was won over even before he became familiar with the scientific literature. In a break before starting medical school in the late 1990s, he attended clown college (Mooseburger University in Oklahoma) and graduated with honors. Using his alter ego, Bobo Doodlemeyer, Stephenson started a clowncare unit at the University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital. “When you get down to it, laughter promotes all kinds of good endorphins, which helps reduce pains and promotes deep breathing.

Fugitive ‘Barefoot Bandit’ may be on island in the Bahamas MARSH HARBOUR, Bahamas (AP) — A fugitive U.S. teenager who has successfully eluded teams of local police and FBI agents may have slipped off the island where he allegedly crash-landed a stolen plane nearly a week ago, police said Friday. Authorities are investigating a report that Colton Harris-Moore, dubbed the “Barefoot Bandit,” has fled Great Abaco Island and was spotted on Eleuthera, about 40 miles to the south, two police officials said. It was unclear how the 19-year-old fugitive might have escaped the island, but a powerboat was stolen in Marsh Harbour. The 44foot boat was reported missing Thursday from the marina on Great Abaco Island, said Harry Mountain, a regional manager for The Moorings hotel and marina resort.

Athletic equipment stolen from Catawba



Thieves, perhaps looking to start their own football team or get physically fit, carried off $13,000 worth of training equipment from Catawba College. Or metal thieves may have opted to go to college. The theft was reported to the Salisbury Police Department on Thursday, although it apparently occurred several weeks ago. Deputy Chief Steve Whitley said the equipment, which included hitting sleds and other football training items, was on the practice field. Groundskeepers who mow the field placed the equipment in the tree line around the field on May 5. The equipment was carried off some time between May 5 and June 5. Fisher Athletic had donated the equipment to the college. Although the theft was discovered on June 5, there was delay in reporting it due to confusion over whether the college or the company owned the equipment.

Landis to start new recycling program

Kids get a chance to have fun outdoors in the summer BY SHELLEY SMITH


LANDIS — The town will be out of the recycling business come this August. The town has entered into an interlocal agreement with Mecklenburg County for a recycling program. The town teamed up with Sharks Recycling in Rockwell which will transport the recycled materials to Charlotte. The program is expected to start by mid-August, said Public Works Director Steve Rowland. Rowland said the town provided recycling, but many residents didn’t participate, he thinks because they had to sort it. Currently, there are 250 residents who participate. “What they do now is they have to separate it and put it in their own containers,” he said. This program is single-stream recycling, meaning all of the waste goes into one bin, no separation necessary. The company will separate all of it. “What will happen is we will supply 65-gallon containers. They will roll them out on Monday night and pick them back up within 24 hours,” Rowland said. Pickup will start at 6 a.m. Tuesday mornings. The east side of town will have their recyclables picked up one week and the west side of town the following week. “We do this now. We won’t change that,” he said. Every garbage customer will receive a recycling bin. There are 1,300 customers. There will be information mailed to customers to explain the details of the program. The following items can be recycled: aluminum, cans (including soup, dog food or beans), paper, newsprint, colored paper, magazines, junk mail, corrugated cardboard (3 feet by 3 feet), wrapping paper, paper bags, shredded paper (must be bagged), plastic (including yogurt containers, water bottles, milk jugs, bags) and glass (including bottles). For more information about about the recycling program, contact Landis Public Works at 704-857-0131. Contact Shavonne Potts at 704-797-4253.

For most children, summer is their favorite time of year. They are free of homework, fluorescent lights and sometimes, rules, and are allowed to roam freely around their neighborhoods, or stay cooled off inside, watching television or playing video games. But for the Salisbury Parks and Recreation Department and the Rowan-Salisbury School System, summer should be a time to continue fellowship among other students or friends in each neighborhood, and more importantly, a time to get outside and stay active. Salisbury Parks and Recreation and the Rowan-Salisbury School System have pulled together once again this summer for the Summer Playground Program, which provides free lunches, arts and crafts, games and supervision for children Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. The four locations — Jersey City Park, Cannon Park, Lincoln Park and Long Street Park — host activities with two Parks and Recreation counselors there to keep the children engaged in different activities. The daily activities and lunches are free. “I think the critical part of the playground program is to provide all children in the community some sort of summer activity,” said Gail Elder White, director of Salisbury Parks and Recreation. “It gives the kids a

Kids are glued to televisions now. “The nice part about including the playgrounds, is it provides kids a safe place to come, too. It’s a valuable program.” A visit to Jersey City Park Friday proved the program to be a positive part of children’s lives during their time off from school. Aside from the physical activities at the Jersey City Park, the children also created construction paper chains, decorating the playground equipment and picnic shelter. Eleven-and-a-half-year-old Jaelan McClellan said Friday was only his third day participating in the program, and he already knew he’d be back next summer. “It’s better than sitting at home because I get to just

play,” Jaelan said. “I walk from my house to play basketball here.” Zion DeBose, 11, also enjoys the fellowship. “I like how I can meet new people here and how the counselors always keep us occupied,” he said. “We always have fun activities and I love playing basketball at the camp.” Twelve-year-old Bianca McGee is also a fan of the basketball games. “And I’ve made a lot of friends,” she added. Melynda Nelson, 14, said she also enjoyed the program not only because it’s fun, but because it keeps herself and others active. “It’s a great program that’s keeping kids active,” she said. “A lot of kids are obese, and I don’t want to get that way. This

is great exercise and a lot of fun.” Counselor George McGee, who took advantage of such programs when he was a child, said being a counselor and role model for children was important to him and was a good way to give back to the community. “It’s giving them (the children) something to do, getting them out of the house, and keeping them out of trouble,” he said. “It’s also giving me something to do, keeping me active.” The 2010 program began June 14 and will run until Aug. 14. Children ages 5 through 17 are welcome to attend. “We hope people will take advantage of it,” said White. “It’s a great value.” Contact Shelley Smith at 704-797-4246.

What other kids think: • Keasia Torrence, six years old - “We get to have fun, we get to eat candy and we get to play games. We play basketball and we get to decorate the playground. We also get to pour water on our feet.” • Corrina McGee, 15 years old - “It’s fun and it’s better than sitting in the house and not doing anything. I’ve made a lot of new friends.” • Kesean Torrence, eight years old - “We can play basketball and play UNO. I like painting ice cream cones.”

Museum Foundation welcomes new board members SPENCER — The N.C. Transportation Museum Foundation has added two new members to its Board of Directors. Bruce Essick and J. Leonard Martin joined the 11-member board during the Foundation’s June 4 meeting. Essick and Martin will strengthen efforts to improve the museum’s aviation and automotive history. The N.C. Transportation Museum Foundation was formed in 1977 as the N.C. Transportation History Corp., comprised of local business leaders, former railroad employees and local politicians. The Foundation assists with fundraising for preservation projects and educational programs. The Foundation operates the train and turntable rides, and helps host special events such as Day Out With Thomas and Santa Train. Other foundation efforts include the museum membership program, grant writing and soliciting donations. Martin brings 40 years of aviation experience to the foundation board. He began work-

ing with Winston-Salem based Piedmont Airlines in 1955, moving through ranks of station operations, customer services and in-flight services. In 1982, Martin became senior vice president of passenger services, managing properMARTIN ties and facilities for 105 cities and directing 11,000 employees. During this time, he managed the start-up of services in 56 domestic cities and four international cities, on time and within budget. In 1989, Martin began airline consulting, including work with then-Gov. Jim Martin. During that time, he began an association with Air T Inc., an air transportation holding company. In 1997, he became CEO of Global Ground Support for Air T Inc., moving in 2001 to his current position of vice president of marketing and sales.

Martin discovered the N.C. Transportation Museum through his long association with Roy Johnson, current president of the Museum Foundation and a long time board member. Martin said the museum is rich in railroad history, “but North Carolina is also very rich in aviation history, from the Wright Brothers to the founding of Piedmont Airlines.” Martin hopes to use his contacts from his time at Piedmont Airlines and US Airways, which merged with Piedmont in the early 1990s, to better explore the state’s aviation history. Bruce Essick is the owner of Bruce Essick Truck Sales and Service in High Point and has spent 40 years in the automotive industry. Active in trucking preservation and industry groups, Essick was co-founder of the Corbitt Preservation Association. He is also a member of the North Carolina Trucking Association Maintenance Council and a 22 year member of the Piedmont Carolina Chapter of the Antique Truck Historical

Society. Elected treasurer of the group in 1998, Essick has organized the spring Piedmont Carolina ATHS truck show at the N.C. Transportation Museum since 2006. Essick has been visiting the museum since its openESSICK ing in the early 1980s, in the days before much of the site was renovated. He also plans to preserve the railroading history on display at the museum, but hopes to use his experience to better tell the story of another piece of transportation history in North Carolina. “Even though the Spencer Shops were a maintenance shop for trains, I would like for our transportation museum to display more truck-related items,” he said. Essick said North Carolina was once ranked second in the number of freight companies in the United States.

their futures. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) agrees. “Early identification of developmental disorders is critical to the wellbeing of children and their families,” the professional society stated in its Pediatrics magazine. Rowan physicians participating in ABCD receive diagnostic tools to use during child visits, supplies for parents to take home, as well as technical assistance and community sources of referral. Edwards created a directory that includes local referral resources such as mental health consultants, speech, occupational and physical therapists and support groups as well as referral forms to those agencies. “The doctors are excited to have a place to go for local resources,” Edwards said. “One of their biggest obstacles is knowing what’s out there to help their patients.” The Rowan County Health Department also received the directory. “I was thrilled to learn that the Health Department was screening children when they went in for immunizations. Many of these families use an emergency room as their medical home, and the children could have missed developmental screenings. Now, if the Health Department finds a child who is at risk for delay, they have a resource book to refer to.” Early detection of devel-

Early detection of developmental, emotional and behavioral delays, risks and disabilities is the key to many children’s success in life. But unfortunately, many children are not diagnosed with these conditions. Nationally, approximately 70 percent of young children are developmentally behind their peers when they enter kindergarten. But in Rowan County, more prekindergarten children with developmental delays are receiving helpful services before they start school, thanks to two Smart Start Rowan programs. The Smart Start ABCD program (Assuring Better Child Health and Development) encourages developmental screenings of children during well-child visits to the doctor while the Smart Start Community Inclusion Specialist provides technical assistance to families of children with special needs or developmental concerns and to the child care facilities the children attend. Approximately 16 percent of all children have some form of disability, including speech and language delays, cognitive impairment, learning disabilities and emotional/behavioral problems. The numbers are even higher for low-income children. National studies have shown that children who participate in early intervention programs prior to kindergarten are more likely to graduate from high school, hold jobs and live independently, plus avoid teen pregnancy, delinquency and violent crime. “Early intervention is enormously important for our children — for our square pegs,” said Katherine Generaux, community inclusion specialist with Partners in Learning Child Development and Family Resource Center, the direct service provider of Smart Start Community Inclusion. “Prekindergarten therapeutic services help children become strong and competent to face their new environment in school,” she explained. “Many children need extra resources and an extra person on their team.” Child care teachers frequently contact Generaux about a student’s development or behavior in the classroom. A child who appears uncooperative or has challenging behavior is exhibiting what he knows. Not all children who attend child care are comfortable in a group setting or know how to follow instructions. Research shows that without social or emotional development, children can’t regulate their emotions and may not feel safe and or a sense of belonging in the classroom. Without those basic comforts, a child is unable to learn basic preschool skills, such as counting or recognizing shapes. Generaux offers technical assistance so the teacher can help the child adjust to the classroom. Sometimes the assistance is simply suggesting a room rearrangement to accommodate a child’s physical delay; it also may be suggesting changes in the way instructions are given. For example, showing a picture of children standing in a straight line while asking students to line up visually shows a child what he’s supposed to do. If Generaux sees a potential developmental delay, parents and the teacher complete a developmental screening tool to see if the child could benefit from additional services, such as speech or physical therapy. Sometimes the parents and the teacher are not seeing the same behavior, and dual assessment can point out that discrepancy. “We tell the parent ‘If your child is lagging behind in one or more areas of development, we can address those issues now so that he’s on track when he starts school’,” Generaux said. The ABCD program also is designed to ensure that students are developmentally prepared for kindergarten. North Carolina requires that all children who are Medicaid-insured receive developmental screenings at their well-child check-ups, and the ABCD project is helping make this a reality for all Rowan chil-

dren, regardless of their payment plan. Lisa Edwards, Rowan’s ABCD coordinator, currently works with six physician practices to help incorporate developmental screenings into regular check-ups. In addition to keeping up with vaccines and evaluating a child’s growth, well-child visits are an opportunity to see how children are developing in the areas of communication, gross motor skills (arm and leg movements), fine motor skills (such as picking up Cheerios), problem solving and social skills. ABCD uses standardized age-oriented questionnaires that the parents complete about their child’s development. When results show a child is at-risk for a developmental delay, the physician can refer him for an in-depth evaluation and treatment. The sooner challenges such as speech delays, learning disabilities, social/emotional problems and autism are properly diagnosed, the sooner children can receive therapeutic interventions. In a physician’s office, developmental screening is designed for the asymptomatic, Edwards explained, for those children thought to be developing normally. Many disabilities are subtle, and children with disabilities may appear to be developing normally, especially when they are very young. Edwards calls the ABCD project “vitally important” to the county’s children and

It’s time to lay down the law rior to Gov. Beverly Perdue's Wednesday meeting with State Highway Patrol leaders, and her rather brief question-and-not many-answers session afterward, the buzz was that serious change was in the works. The governor already had said she was upset with the numerous instances of misbehavior by Patrol members reported in the last months. Speculation was that Col. Randy Glover, the Patrol commander appointed by Perdue — the two happen to be old friends — and Crime Control Secretary Reuben Young might be replaced in the wake of a string of embarrassing disclosures, including episodes of drunken driving and sexual misconduct. Perdue promised she was going to clean things up and invoked the well-worn term of “zero tolerance” in what she would demand if a Patrol member stepped out of line. But Wednesday, the buzz faded to the sound of a hummingbird. Perdue said she wasn’t changing leadership at the top, but that Young and Glover would be going around the state to have some stern words with troopers, who also will be required to take ethics training and sign a code of conduct. And yes, there would be structural changes, she said, which Glover and Young would recommend. The governor's response thus fell far short of what the public had a right to expect and what the Patrol needed. This is an organization in trouble, either because of an outdated and inappropriate “culture” that assumes boys will be boys (although the 1,800-member Patrol is not exclusively male), or because of poor leadership. A history of entanglement with politics also has been a worrisome influence. And while the governor and those who work for her have acted to dismiss troopers who have clearly violated acceptable conduct standards, what choice did they have? Driving drunk? Charged with felony hitand-run? Yes, it’s true that the Patrol is a large organization, and that the most serious problems have involved a small fraction of the force. It’s also a fact that the Patrol does good and often hazardous work. The vast majority of those who are in its ranks are stand-up people. For them, and for the public that relies on this law enforcement agency, it is imperative that strong and immediate action in changing leadership be taken. The governor’s apparent waffling doesn’t help the situation. ... The Patrol needs new leadership, and at this point, it would be helpful to consider outside leadership. But that won't be easily accomplished, since state law requires that the commander come from within. That law didn’t anticipate the problems now facing the organization, and it should be changed. In the meantime, Perdue needs to acquire a sense of urgency. The Patrol deserves better, and so do the people.

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be) “Wit is the salt of conversation, not the food.” — William Hazlitt

Moderately Confused

ow that NBA superstar LeBron James has exercised his contractual right to play in Miami rather than Cleveland next season, what does his move say about the sports world and today’s culture? Short answer: not a lot of good things. Much of the fault lies with James himself. He could have made a simple announcement that, after seven years with his hometown Cavaliers, he preferred to join his friends Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh with the Heat in an attempt to win his first NBA title. Instead, ESPN, as it often does, got involved with a silly one-hour special Thursday night centered on LeBron’s decision. The unnecessary extravaganza only added fuel to James’ critics, who see the 25-year-old, twotime MVP as a narcissistic egomaniac who has not earned the right to such lavish attention over players who have won championships. For what it’s worth, it may have dawned on James at the last moment how bad this all looked. Some say he appeared increasingly uncomfortable as the nonsensical show wore on. So let’s run down the list. A good day for James? Not according to the vitriol spewed his way in the blogosphere. A good day for the NBA? Not really. One of the sport’s best leaves his hometown team in a lurch going to a city whose interest in the NBA, and sports in general, is often tepid. And as for loyalty in sports? This was Pearl Harbor and 9/11 rolled into one. Just check out the jilted Cleveland fans burning all things James. To stretch the point further, James’ departure is another blow to the Rust Belt, which has been dying a slow death since the 1980s. Certainly the lure of warm weather, South Beach models and the good life would be hard for any of us to resist. But shouldn’t the simple promise of winning a championship for your hometown carry a little more weight? Maybe it did in 1964, when NFL star Jim Brown and the Browns won Cleveland’s last pro sports title. But sports in 2010 center increasingly on image and marketing — LeBron James the product as much as James the small forward. And that notion was the only winner Thursday night.



Patriotism & the ‘beautiful game’ BY DR. TROY KICKLER Carolina Journal

ALEIGH — On Sunday, The Netherlands will play Spain for the 2010 World Cup Championship. Among friends, I predicted that the talented Dutch would be in that game. (Why it’s a surprise for many, I have no idea.) But admittedly, my tournament interest waned when the United States lost to Ghana; my country and emotional favorite was out of the tourney. Many others couldn’t have cared less, though. Apathy among KICKLER many American sports fans is understandable, I guess. But I can’t grasp why some denounced Americans who play the “beautiful game”— especially those on the World Cup team who represent the decriers’ country. I don’t care about marathon running, baseball or curling (except for the cool pants that the Norwegian team wears), but I avoid disparaging the athletes and wish the U.S. teams success in competitions. I have heard and read wisecracks since the World Cup started: Soccer isn’t a real sport. The game isn’t exciting; it’s boring and sleep-inducing. Why run around for 90 minutes to score only one goal? And the ultimate yet unwitting admission of sporting ignorance and prejudice: Soccer players lack the athletic ability to play baseball, basketball, or football. (I should offer full disclosure: I enjoy soccer and used to play it competitively, and my family has played the game competitively and for recreation — in America —


since the 1920s.) Another criticism is that only rich or upper middleclass suburban kids play soccer. There are plenty of those, true. But that’s a myopic view of the crowd and the players that ironically reveals that the critic is a member of the socioeconomic group he criticizes. The sport is cheap to play, and so it’s popular among the poor. Among private schools with limited budgets, it’s offered, instead of football, as the primary fall sport. And consider Clint Dempsey, a Southern boy from Nacogdoches, Texas, who lived in a trailer and learned soccer in the back yard. His parents started driving him to Dallas so he could learn more sophisticated play. Eventually his family couldn’t afford to pay for the travel and for his sister’s promising tennis career. Dempsey’s sister suffered an aneurism at 16 and died. All attention then turned to Clint’s desire to play soccer. He now is fulfilling his childhood dream. He plays professionally in England and represents America on the biggest sporting stage. I’ve heard more serious criticisms concerning American soccer and World Cup 2010. Here are a few: It’s only popular in the United States due to recent immigration, and the World Cup is evidence of the weakening and Europeanization of America. Or it’s an attempt to break down all national barriers and create One World. Such talk leads one to think that rejecting soccer is a patriotic act — an America without soccer is a nation without problems. A couple of World Cup commercials, true, promote a fuzzy-postmodern-multicultural-global brotherhood. After watching numerous games, however, I think the

World Cup has another effect. Fans and players of various professional teams unite for a common purpose — to challenge the world to beat them in their beloved game. At that moment, one’s country and one’s people are all that’s important. Please tell me another sport in which Americans wave large American flags, wear red, white, and blue, and dress like Uncle Sam or some of the Founding Fathers. Tell me another sport in which one can hear American fans, arm in arm, booming patriotic chants, or see them crying when the national anthem is played or when an incompetent ref overlooks fouls and disallows an obvious goal. Tell me another sport in which advertisers try to appeal to the audience by including Revolutionary War soldiers, “Don’t Tread on Me” flags, and George Washington driving a Challenger to face the British. Indeed, this year’s World Cup offered some teachable moments for Americans desperately in need of some education. What other sport harkens back to the Founding Era or has indirect references to federalism? The U.S. Soccer Team has two slogans: “Don’t Tread on Me” (because we are) “Fifty States, One Team.” Although I’ll be watching The Netherlands/Spain game, I will be wondering “what if” and looking forward to watching the U.S. play in the next World Cup. With or without the support of their countrymen, Uncle Sam’s Army and The Boys in Blue will be ready to challenge the world and maybe remind Americans who we are. • • • Dr. Troy Kickler is director of the North Carolina History Project.

The day I dropped my camera and picked up a pig h, yes, I remember July 4, 1950. That’s the year I caught the greasy pig. Come along with me. It took place in my hometown of Faith, five miles south of Salisbury, off I-85 a few miles. The Fourth of July celebration was begun three years earlier and was building. A few hundred people had gathered for that first BILL event. The paWILLIAMS rade saw a few old Army jeeps, a fire truck, some beauty queens and a clutch of veterans outfitted in their service uniforms and somebody on a flatbed blowing a bugle. By 1950, the holiday had become more than that. Festivities had spread from the American Legion Park across the road to the Faith Elementary School baseball field. Extend the left-field foul line 50 yards and you are in the front yard of the Williams family — eight kids, Mom and Pop, and Grandma. The old folks always watched Saturday ball games under the two maples growing taller in the front yard. By 1950, an assortment of games had been added for kids. A little-boy’s baseball game filled the grandstand in

The egg toss featured sure-handed ball players who figured that if you could catch a baseball then you could catch an egg. Well, a lot of them could and a lot of them couldn’t. Many casualties. With egg on their faces and on their July 4th getup. It was in the afternoon, however, when the Greasy Pig Chase took place. It was the last event of the afternoon before the crowd dispersed and headed again for the good eatin’s and soft drinks in the

park. I had returned from the Air Force as a photographer and had swapped $400 of my service savings for a brand-new 4 x 5 Speedgraphic camera, weighing five pounds. I had set up a photo business in Faith and was shooting everything and everybody who would catch my eye or make me hold my breath — weddings, pin-ups, funerals (why people wanted photos of loved ones in caskets, I never figured out, but they did). I had bought a ’34 Dodge sedan from my brother-in-law; so, I was ready with camera

and car. After church, I went to homes and made family portraits while the members were still civil to each other — and willing to pay the bill. But, I digress. So, there I was, just behind the starting rope, planning to record on film at that very moment when the fastest man alive captured that pig and clutched it to his chest. The rope dropped and the pig rushed from his sack. The crowd surged forward, but the pig — mad as a hornet after having been penned up in that sack — broke out and headed for the ditch that ran from left field to center field. And, be durned, if I wasn’t right behind him, holding fast to that 4 x 5 Speedgraphic. I was in good shape, about like the pig. About the same time the pig ran breathless into a hole in the washed-out ditch, I sat down my camera and grabbed the pig. No lie. Sold him to my married brother, Claude, for $10. He kept him for a few months and then ate him. • • • Faith native Bill Williams is the former editor of the Gaston Gazette, where his weekly columns still appear.

Perdue eager to sign ABC legislation RALEIGH — Gov. Bev Perdue’s office said Friday she looks forward to signing legislation that includes a provision to split up local ABC board appointments among Rowan County, Salisbury and Kannapolis. Given final approval in the General Assembly on Thursday, the bill was amended by Sen. Fletcher Hartsell of Concord to give each governing body one appointment to the three-member board, with Salisbury’s coming at the end of this month. That provision is a small part of the bill that Perdue’s office said addresses priorities she set earlier this year of adding accountability and transparency to the state’s Alcoholic Beverage Control system. The bill will strengthen the control that city councils and county commissioners exercise over local ABC boards, her office said in a press release. It also will add muscle to the state ABC Commission’s ability to address problems at local boards. “We have had far too many embarrassing stories over the past year about how some of our local ABC operations are run,” Perdue said. “Local ABC boards, and the elected officials who appoint them, will have to answer for

how well they run the business with which they have been entrusted.” Among other steps, the legislation requires that local boards establish ethics policies for themselves and their employees and limit the salaries of their employees. New performance standards for enforcement of ABC laws, for efficiency and for customer service will provide tools with which the state commission can more effectively guide and, if necessary, penalize local boards. The provision that would affect the Rowan-Kannapolis ABC Board was added at the request of Kannapolis and has drawn the ire of some Rowan County commissioners who said they were told the issue would not come up during the legislature’s short session. Officials in Salisbury and Kannapolis said it is only fair to give each of their governing bodies an appointment since most of the ABC stores in the system are in those cities. Reps. Lorene Coates and Fred Steen of Rowan County voted in favor of the legislation along with Rep. Linda Johnson of Kannapolis. When it came before the Senate, Sen. Andrew Brock, who represents Rowan and Davie counties, voted against it.

She is also survived by son-in-law Geoffrey Going. Born Aug. 1, 1929, in Durham, she graduated from Bragtown High School and attended Elon College, where she majored in music. A highlight of this time in her life was performing with the Robert Shaw Chorale in New York City. She met her future husband while employed at Blue Cross/Blue Shield in Durham. She and Bert were married on Jan. 3, 1959. She was a dedicated wife, mother and homemaker, yet she still pursued her other passions. Among these were historic preservation and the performing arts. She was an avid and knowledgeable collector of North Carolina pottery and antique furniture, much of which she restored herself. Always interested in politics, she ran for Salisbury City Council in 1975. She was key in organizing Salisbury's 1976 Bicentennial celebration. For many years, she remained active with Piedmont Players, Salisbury Historic Foundation and the Appearance Committee, and participated in Salisbury OctoberTours. Emma Jean will be remembered and cherished by her family and friends as strong, smart, determined and unconditionally loving.

China Grove to discuss vehicle ordinance China Grove will have a public hearing at its Aug. 3 meeting to discuss a low speed vehicle ordinance. Councilman Lee Withers first brought this issue to the board in May saying it would allow golf carts, Gators, offroad utility vehicles and other slow moving vehicles on the streets. There is a possibility the vehicles will have to be registered with the police department and local and state agencies. Owners would have to buy and maintain liability insurance. A similar ordinance was approved in Oakboro in 2008. The board meets at 7 p.m., at town hall, 205 Swink St.

Except the people. “I can’t think of any other time when we’ve been called on more and have less resources,” Blackwelder says. The need is great — people want to start their own gardens, they’re concerned about nutrition, some insurance companies are mandating a certain health standard and people want to know how to eat healthier. Schools need programs, and not just on healthy eating. Blackwelder says thirdgraders are learning about soils and need help from a group like extension, which uses research-based information to educate the public. “We all work with youth now,” Blackwelder says. “Not just Sara and Toi, but all of us.” He’s proud of the extensive youth programs developed through 4-H, most of which are funded through money raised by the 4-H members themselves, through plant sales and other activities. He’s proud of the extensive participation of youth in the various livestock programs. Johnson has dairy judging teams, beef teams and more, many of which have won state awards. Blackwelder follows Jim Cowden as director, who followed Amelia Watts, who had been an agent for many years before becoming director. She replaced Harold Caudill, who was director for at least 25 years. He takes over at a time when extension has to worry about funding and voluntarily cut their request to the county, knowing there just wasn’t much to go around. Extension is funded half by the county and half by the state, but some of that state money comes from the federal government. So it’s back to doing more with less. The Master Gardeners are a big help, Blackwelder says, and do some of their own fundraisers. There are 44 Master Gardeners now and they can answer questions and lead programs around the county. “It’s amazing to me how much we rely on volunteers for our day-to-day activities,” Blackwelder says. “We have more than 100 volunteers. We couldn’t keep operating without them. I don’t know of any other agency that relies so heavily on volunteers.” Blackwelder also writes for grants, most of which are fairly small. One big grant, $60,000, is helping

Center. He is being held on two counts of murder in the shooting death of Larry Thomas “Rudy” Andrews Jr., 33, of Kernersville, and Mickey Jordan, 29, of Salisbury. According to police, Lambert and Jordan, who had a history of “bad blood,” got into an altercation at Benchwarmers around midnight on Saturday, June 26. Lambert was thrown out. Two hours later when the bar closed, police say he pulled alongside Jordan’s vehicle, near the Square, shooting Jordan repeatedly. One bullet from the .45-caliber Glock killed a passenger, Andrews, almost instantly. Jordan died at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center on Wednesday, 10 days after the shooting. Whitley, a veteran police officer, said it’s easy to predict crime patterns, but murder is almost impossible to predict. Friends, family and acquaintances may know about bad feelings and issues between people, but police usually don’t know until after somebody is shot or killed. Other types of crime are easier to predict. “Hoodlums are creatures of habit,” Whitley said Friday, adding, “You can’t predict murder. Most of the killings come in waves … in Salisbury and in the county.” Although there have been recent incidents involving bars and downtown clubs, Whitley said the bar owners and operators do a good job. They are quick to call police if a situation is getting out of hand. Teams are deployed at maximum on Saturday nights — with the intent of trying to deter or prevent crimes.

Darrell Blackwelder, director of the Rowan Cooperative Extension, has degrees from Wingate and Clemson. them build the Millbridge garden, along with the school system and health department. It will be used in teaching various subjects and as a demonstration area. Contrary to popular belief, Blackwelder was not born here. He’s from Fort Mill, S.C., and has degrees from Wingate and Clemson universities and 16 hours of additional graduate work at N.C. State University. Extension is actually a program of N.C. State and is part of the university system. Agents are required to take a graduate level course every 5 years. He’s taken courses in plant diseases, insects and marketing. “I really enjoy the marketing part,” he says. He likes getting the word out. He and wife Gerrie have been married for 24 years. She retired after a teaching career with Rowan-Salisbury Schools and is an avid Shakespeare fan. Their dogs, Puck and Jip, have literary names, as all their dogs have. Puck is a character in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and Jip is from “David Copperfield.” Blackwelder and his wife enjoy live theater and go to plays here, in Charlotte and on Broadway. “Wicked” is a recent favorite. Blackwelder gardens a little at home, but doesn’t have much room. He also enjoys good food. He’s made several trips

overseas to teach about pesticides and marketing. He’s been to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, as well as Egypt. Most of those programs, once sponsored by the United Nations and other international farm-aid groups, have been canceled because of unrest in the various countries. His trip to Kyrgyzstan was especially eye-opening. “They sell unmarked, used bottles full of pesticide in local open markets. No one knows what’s in it. I’d talk to a farmer with an old Coke bottle, pouring it on his tomatoes, and the bottle would say it was for corn. He didn’t care. It was what he could get.” Other countries, he says, test their pesticides in places like Kyrgyzstan, where most people are desperately poor and have little education. “And a lot of them have a lot of superstitious. ... I tried to bring them common sense sorts of things, but it was hard for them to understand and accept.” He has better luck at home. “There are a lot of ways that we can touch people,” Blackwelder says of extension. “Our goal is to provide research-based information for the citizens of Rowan County.” He considers himself lucky in his job. “There’s not many days I don’t want to come to work.”

EMBEZZLING FROM 1a months, said Cook, who prosecuted the case. Police arrested Raper, 51, of 2303 Milton St., in June 2009 after a six-month investigation. She was charged with embezzling more than $100,000 from P&E Machinery at 2003 Lane St., Kannapolis. Derek Eudy, owner of P&E Machinery, called the Kannapolis Police Department when the Internal Revenue Service informed him that payroll taxes for employees at his business hadn’t been paid in five years. Eudy told police he believed Raper had taken the money. Raper had worked as the office manager at P&E for about five years and maintained financial records for the business. Detectives Kay Linker and Laura Carden investigated the case and discovered that Raper had forged Eudy’s name on a Wachovia se-

curity waiver allowing her access to the company’s credit line, Cook’s press release said. Detectives also discovered Raper prepared fictitious payroll checks, purchased items with the company’s credit card, converted petty cash checks, used the company’s checks to pay her own credit cards and opened various credit cards in the company’s name without permission. Linker said in the press release that in her 24-year career in law enforcement, “this investigation ranked in the top five of the destruction that was caused to Eudy’s company and to his family.” Cook said Raper’s guilty plea in criminal court should assist Eudy in pending civil litigation surrounding his company. Eudy said in the press release that the pain Raper has caused him, his family, his company and employees “is indescribable” and he appreciated the work of the detectives and Cook to resolve the case and obtain a conviction.

Traveling with God went to my brother and sister-in-law’s house for their annual 4th of July gathering. When you go to their house for a family gathering you might be greeted by as little as a dozen people to as many as 30. You don’t have to be family. If you don’t have someone to be with on a holiday, there is always an extra plate at my brother’s house. DOUG CREAMER It seems every time I go to one of his gatherings there are people I have never seen before, but we all enjoy the food, family atmosphere and fun. This year’s gathering was marked by stories of travels. My dad had been on a cruise up the northeast coast and into Canada. Within a four-day period he had celebrated the birth of two nations: Canada and America. My brother has made me want to go and see such beauty. My sister helped chaperone a youth mission trip to Honduras. The pictures of that beautiful land were equally phenomenal. I was interested to hear how happy and reconciled with life the people seemed to be even though they didn’t have many possessions. It was great to hear stories of how the youth connected with the people so well. It seemed the missionaries were as highly impacted as those they went to serve and help. Those were the major trips, but there were also plans for additional trips including the Dominican Republic, a wilderness survival trip, a reunion of former Boy Scouts at Philmont, N.M., a mission trip to the inner city of Charlotte and a beach trip. I am so proud of my nieces and nephews (and their significant others) who are traveling around the world to help people who are less fortunate than themselves. It is so good to see the next generation eager and hungry to reach out to their fellow human beings from different corners of the world. I think those kinds of trips will change their lives and their concept of love and success. We are all grateful for God’s protection as we travel. If we added up all the miles that my family will travel this summer the total would be unbelievable. We all need God’s hand of protection around us as we make trips. We have some responsibility when we travel in that we should be paying attention to what we are doing and not texting or talking on the phone. Life is much like a trip. We have an idea where we are going, our eternal destination, just not sure of all the stops along the way. We have some objectives we want to accomplish, but ultimately it is still a journey of faith. In our journey, we really need to ask God to guide and protect us. I believe God is with us, closer than any of us realize. He’s not only there to protect us but to guide us. He wants us to see some awesome sights, but often we miss them because we have allowed the busyness of life to crowd out his voice. I am convinced that God is walking along beside us much like a best friend would while walking the beach. He wants to share life’s experiences with you. God wants to be involved in every detail of your life, guiding you and listening when it seems like you don’t have a friend in the world. God is with you. I want to encourage you to begin to recognize that God is truly walking with you every hour of every day. Look for His presence, listen for His voice. God not only wants you to share with Him, He wants to share with you. When we take time to bring God into every situation we are going to change the outcome of those situations. So I want to encourage you to invite God into your personal life, your family life, your work life, in every aspect of your life, stop and invite Him in. I believe if you do you will experience life more fully and you will discover peace, joy, and fulfillment. Doug Creamer’s website is


Sells and Tenery publish book about creating ‘spirit-powered’ churches ocal author J. Steve Sells along with co-author Robert M. Tenney will be at the Bible Book Store, 314 S. Main St., on July 16 from 6-9 p.m. to promote and sign their newest book entitled “For Such a Time as This: Five Steps to a Spirit-Powered Church.” Bleak reports in recent years show that church membership in mainline and evangelical denominations has either plateaus or is declining. One survey even found that the majority of American Christians no longer believe the Holy Spirit or Satan exists. Like many Christians, long time pastors Robert M. Tenney and J. Steve Sells find such news disturbing and pondered reasons for such a change in attitudes and beliefs. Based on their years of pastoral ministry and theological study, they are persuaded that churches have neglected one of the foundational beliefs of Christianity: the power of the Holy Spirit. They contend that churches should not shy away from this Biblical doctrine because a few have abused it. Sells grew up in Calvary Baptist Church on East Ridge Road. After more than 30 years in the pastorate he served the Savannah Baptist Association as director of

The authors have arranged the material so that it can be used for a sermon series, Sunday School classes or Bible study groups. “Points For Discussion” are especially useful for delving into the vital topic and stimulating further discussion.

Where would Jesus drill? In wake of spill,‘ecotheology’ movement hopes to win converts BY JOHN FLESHER Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Where would Jesus drill? Religious leaders who consider environmental protection a godly mission are making the Gulf of Mexico oil spill a rallying cry, hoping it inspires people of faith to support cleaner energy while changing their personal lives to consume less and contemplate more. “This is one of those rare moments when you can really focus people’s attention on what’s happening to God’s creation,” said Walt Grazer, head of the National Religious Partnership for the Environment. Activists in the movement often described as “green religion” or “eco-theology” are using blogs and news conferences to get the word out. Some are visiting the Gulf, inspecting oil-spattered wetlands and praying with idled fishermen and other victims. And believers in the stricken coastal regions are looking at the consequences of the oil’s reach and asking what good can come out of it. During worship services

on a recent Sunday, pastor Eddie Painter of Barataria Baptist Church in the fishing village of Lafitte told his congregation a silver lining in the tragedy might be renewed government commitment to restoring the region’s battered coastal marshlands. “I actually didn’t think I would be as deeply affected as I was by seeing oil in the water, the birds with oil stains, the marsh grass that had turned a shiny brown,” said the Rev. Jim Ball of the Evangelical Environmental Network, who recently toured Louisiana’s Barataria Bay by boat. Another delegation was scheduled to arrive in New Orleans on Tuesday for an interfaith prayer service and tour. Among the participants are Jim Wallis of the progressive Christian group Sojourners and Rabbi David N. Saperstein of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism. Both have served on President Barack Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Their appearance is being coordinated with the Sierra Club, which has forged al-

liances with organized religion since its former director, Carl Pope, acknowledged in a 1997 speech the environmental movement had erred by shunning such ties. “Different people have credibility with different segments of the population,” said Lindsey Moseley, the group’s Washington representative. “The oil spill is ultimately a matter of values, which for many people are rooted in deeply held religious beliefs.” Organizations including the National Council of Churches and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops have issued statements calling for soul-searching. Some are providing ecologically themed online resources — prayers, liturgy, scripture readings — for use in worship services. “We have used God’s creation without regard for the impact our rapacity had on the other creatures with whom we share our earthly home,” reads a model prayer on the Council of Churches’ website. The push for an ecological Great Awakening since the oil spill began in April has come from liberals as well as theologically conservative groups such as the Evangelical Environmental Network, which previously sponsored an ad

campaign with the slogan “What Would Jesus Drive?” that called for more fuel-efficient vehicles. In a resolution this month, the Southern Baptist Convention declared that humanity’s “God-given dominion over the creation is not unlimited, as though we were gods and not creatures” and called for “energy policies based on prudence, conservation, accountability and safety.” “Caring for creation is an extension of loving your neighbor as yourself,” said Russell Moore, dean of Southern Baptist Seminary in Louisville, Ky., who wrote the statement. Disagreements persist, especially over public policies like climate-change legislation. Painter, the Lafitte preacher, criticized the Obama administration’s fight for a moratorium on offshore drilling, saying it would worsen unemployment in the struggling community. “I think we’re called to be good stewards of God’s creation,” said Painter, who’s also a part-time crab fisherman. “But I have no patience with people who are using the situation to push a political agenda.” But some scholars say


their response to the oil spill at least suggests an emerging agreement that environmental issues are fair game in houses of worship where they were long ignored. “Very few of the world’s religions were making any statements about the environment 20 years ago, and now virtually all of them have,” said Mary Evelyn Tucker, a historian of religion and founder of Yale University’s Forum on Religion and Ecology. “The challenge is to put them into practice.” Even people with no specific religious beliefs are recognizing a spiritual dimension in the Gulf tragedy and taking a deeper look at their energy use, Tucker said. The disaster may help replace longstanding divisions based on dogma or culture with “a new kind of consensus that isn’t liberal or conservative, left or right, but focuses on stewardship of creation, care for the poor and accountability for corporate leaders,” Wallis said. Moore, a native of “Godfearing, pro-defense, Republican-voting” Biloxi, Miss., said the creation care message is resonating in his home state as oil spoils its Gulf coastline and batters its economy.

United FeatUre Syndicate




Swallow the bitter pill and put past mistakes behind you as soon as you can so that you can move forward on a clean slate in the year ahead. Set positive goals that you're capable of achieving, and the months that follow will be good. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — When it comes to achieving success at work, timing is a factor that will either make or break you. Being anxious may get you to act prematurely while doubts might cause you to drag your feet. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Little is learned when you monopolize conversations, so in order to expand your knowledge of a difficult situation, be a good listener. It'll give you a better understanding of the problem at hand. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Either don't go shopping just now or if you do, at least put a limit on your spending. Your natural tendency will be to buy everything that looks good, with little concern for the bills. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Be careful not to outsmart yourself in trying to get the best of a deal. Instead of using tricky tactics, be forthright and demand your honest share of a collective endeavor. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — A responsibility that has always been yours might be temporarily given to another. Unfortunately, if the person isn't equipped to handle it, it will only make greater work for you later. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If a disagreement arises between you and another, it would be best not to discuss it in front of the others. It might cause people to take sides and make matters worse, not better. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Unfortunately, you could have a tendency to worry about things that will never happen. By expecting negative results, you can be sure you will find a way to make them occur. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Unless you've learned from the past and know how to offset things, a painful situation will arise again. Pay attention this time, so you'll never have to repeat it again. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — If you find yourself stuck in a bum deal, don't try to amend it by pouring good money after bad. If you're not prudent in the management of your funds, all that's left is foolishness. Aries (March 21-April 19) — It won't do you any good to try to use force to overcome any opposition you are likely to experience. The best way to combat it is to appease the resistance with compromise. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — In attempting to do things perfectly, you could end up doing things the hard way. Instead, put your imagination to work to find methods or procedures that would be less drastic. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — It isn't likely you'll be able to get all your work obligations off of your mind, if you forsake them in order to engage in some kind of pleasurable outlet with friends. You won't have much fun. Trying to patch up a broken romance? The Astro-Graph Matchmaker can help you understand what to do to make the relationship work. Send for your Matchmaker set by mailing $3 to AstroGraph, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092-0167.

Surgeon failed to properly inform patient Dear Dr. Gott: In mid-September 2009, I had a lung lobectomy and was in the hospital for about 21⁄2 weeks. There were complications, including atrial fibrillation and a delay in the lung sealing, which caused the drain tubes to remain in for most of my stay. I was told that I would be in the hospital between five and seven days and back at work within three months. As yet, I have not been able to DR. PETER return to work. Prior to the GOTT surgery, the only thing that was brought to my attention was that sometimes things “go wrong,” and when I was discharged from the hospital, I was given minimal instructions. For some naive reason, I thought that if I woke up from the anesthesia that things had “gone right.” While the doctor did mention separation of my ribs, he did not tell me that I would have severe pain for months following the surgery. I was also never told that some nerves would be severed and that both pain and nausea could result. It is now May 2010, and I am still having problems. I tremble most of the time and have started to feel like one of those dolls with my head bobbing. My bra is very uncomfortable, as the right breast is numb, and I often feel as if barbed wire is being rolled over my skin. This sensation is getting less frequent, and I am starting to notice a slight improvement from a few months ago. My family physician helped relieve the nausea and pain with two medications. I took both for

only six to eight weeks and then weaned off in order to avoid side effects. To make matters worse, it is questionable that I even needed the surgery. Few options were discussed with me. Because I have had few medical problems in my 64 years, I was not versed in the correct questions to ask. After the surgery, it turned out that I had a mostly self-contained infection and not cancer, which was indicated before the surgery. I am having difficulty exercising. I seem to strain the muscles on my right side whenever I do even light stretch-band exercises. I walk on a treadmill but am only able to do about 10 minutes at a time before I get winded. Since leaving the hospital, I have had no more atrial fibrillation, which is a blessing, and I have been able to wean down my Coreg to 6.25 milligrams, which has helped restore some of my energy. When I was on a higher dose, all I wanted to do was sleep for the first several months. I also take extra vitamins A, B and D to help repair the nerve damage and boost my immunity. How long can I expect these problems to last? Why don’t surgeons tell you what to expect prior to surgery and then later in the hospital-discharge instructions? I was totally blindsided by these complications, many of which happened after my discharge. Please advise patients to get a second opinion and ask surgeons to be up front about what to expect following any surgical procedure. I encourage everyone to get a second opinion, even if they feel that the surgeon knows his stuff. I realize that removal of a lung is an intense operation, but

I feel that I would have been better prepared to handle the complications if I had known that they could happen. Dear reader: Whether or not you were medically naive, it is no excuse for your surgeon to have neglected to inform you what the surgery entailed, both during and after. I am also shocked that you were urged to have removal of a lung without even undergoing further diagnostic testing to determine whether your “lung tumor” was truly a lung tumor. Surgical removal of any organ should be done only when and if there is medical necessity, and there are numerous tests available to determine what type of tumor or other abnormality is present. You have endured months of complications and pain for a lung infection that could probably have been treated with oral medications. As to your question about why surgeons don’t inform patients, I would certainly hope that this is not the norm. When I was in active practice, patients were always informed about possible complications of surgery and provided with alternative options, as well as the surgeon’s opinion of which would be best. This also held true for diagnostic testing, such as imaging studies that involved dyes, tissue biopsies and more. I urge you to get a referral to another surgeon or a pulmonologist, who can review your operative report, examine you, and offer suggestions regarding treatment of your complications. You will also benefit from pulmonary rehabilitation, which aids your body in adjusting to having only one lung in a controlled, safe manner. Speak to your family doctor about these steps.

Bridge: You control now, but will you later? third round in the dummy. That thought should show South how to retain control. If West leads the spade jack, declarer takes the trick with dummy’s ace, calls for a low heart, and plays a low heart from his hand. This gives the defenders the trump trick they will always get while you retain a heart in the dummy with which to ruff a third round of diamonds. When South next wins a trick, he draws trumps and runs the clubs. If West leads a trump, South follows the same scheme, ducking that trick.

David Sedaris, a humorist, author and radio contributor, said, “Writing gives you the illusion of control, and then you realize it’s just an illusion, that people are going to bring their own stuff into it.” All right — if that is true, I will write something, then pass control over to you. South is in four hearts. West leads either the spade jack or the heart jack. Who is in control, the defense or the declarer? South’s two-heart rebid shows at least a six-card suit and some 6-9 high-card points. North, with two trumps and 17 points, makes a game-invitational raise. And South, who has the ace-king of trumps, happily takes a shot at the vulnerable game. (If you use weak-jump-shift responses, make sure you and your partner agree on how many

50 years of the Twist PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Fifty years to the day after the release of the hip-swiveling tune “The Twist,” the man who made it famous is celebrating in his hometown. Chubby Checker performed Friday at a free noontime concert at Philadelphia City Hall. About 1,000 people enthusiastically joined in on the gyrations. The singer even invited some onstage. The 68-year-old Checker says it’s a celebration of 50 years of people dancing on the floor by themselves. He says it was the first time people danced without a partner.

9 Interior Fixes to Sell a Home Fast the time to wash the windows, shampoo the carpets, regrout the bathrooms, and tackle all of those messes that could compromise a sale. 5. Add a fresh coat of paint. If walls are bright colors or eclectic, it could pay to paint rooms in more neutral shades to appeal to the masses. Just be aware that some buyers are suspicious

of paint, especially freshly painted ceilings. They may think a homeowner is trying to hide something, usually water stains. 6. Keep the home updated. While one doesn’t have to follow every trend, ensuring the home is ageless can make for a better sell. So if the cabinets scream 1985 and the bathroom is circa 1967, it could be time to do some up-

dating. 7. Create “happy” spaces. Buyers don’t want to purchase a dark home that seems full of doom and gloom. Open the windows, turn on the lights, add lights to dark rooms and use light colors as room accents. Generally buyers want a bright and light home. 8. Avoid provocation. One potential buyer could be an

animal lover, another a political activist. No one can tell who will view the home. So don’t display personal items that might offend. Take down mounted deer heads and put away books that may seem offensive. It can be a good idea to store religious items as well. 9. Clean out closets and cabinets: Partially empty closets and cabinets give the

suggestion that the home is large and has plenty of storage space — so much so that it doesn’t even all need to be used. Buyers who see jampacked closets could wonder what’s up with storage. Selling a home in a tough market can be easier when homeowners take the steps needed to stage homes for a faster sale. HI108752 Courtesy of ARAcontent

Despite low interest rates and declining sale prices, there is still a lot of home inventory available. That means homeowners thinking about selling have to do whatever they can to set their homes apart from the others available. Real estate experts call it “staging,” or presenting the home in the best light so that potential buyers can envision themselves moving right in. Just a few changes here and there can position a home to sell faster than the competition. 1. The nose knows. A house can be perfect inside and out, but if it smells bad, buyers will likely be put off. Make sure there is no noticeable odor, such as pet smells, garbage, stale smoke, etc., to turn off others. 2. Clear out. Make sure the interior looks as spacious as possible. This could mean taking out some furniture and temporarily putting it in storage. Be sure countertops in bathrooms and kitchens are free of clutter. And pack away knick-knacks that can collect dust. 3. Cater to the lazy person. Potential buyers generally want to move in and simply unpack. They don’t want to make major repairs. Therefore, homeowners should do whatever repairs are possible, within reason. If that means tearing down dated wallpaper or replacing carpeting with hardwood floors, it could mean a faster sale. 4. Do a deep cleaning. Whether a cleaning service is hired or the homeowner does it himself, tackling necessary cleaning projects could make the home shine. Now is

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS Inventories held by wholesalers rose for a fifth consecutive month in May but sales fell for the first time in more than a year, sending a cautionary signal about the strength of the recovery. Wholesale inventories increased 0.5 percent while sales dropped 0.3 percent, the Commerce Department said Friday. It was the first decline for sales since March of 2009. The stock market ended its best week in a year with another gain Friday as investors placed their last bets before the start of second-quarter earnings reports. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 59 points, or 0.6 percent. That gave the Dow its biggest weekly advance in a year, 5.3 percent. Broader indexes posted bigger gains. Boeing and European defense contractor EADS submitted bids for the Air Force’s troubled $35 billion refueling plane contract. It is the latest round in a tussle that has yet to produce a winner and has forced the Air Force to keep up its fleet of planes, some of which are more than 50 years old. The Pentagon has said it plans to award a contract in November,. NTP Inc., the patent-holding

company that won a settlement of more than $600 million from the maker of the BlackBerry, said it has sued six other companies in the smart phone industry. Apple Inc., Google Inc., Microsoft Corp., HTC Corp., Motorola Inc. and LG Electronics Inc. now face lawsuits over the same patents that were at issue in its case against BlackBerry maker Research In Motion Ltd. Anadarko Petroleum Corp. says it won’t help BP pay for the worst oil spill in U.S. history. The Houston company, which owns 25 percent of BP’s blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico, said it has refused to send the $272 million contribution that BP requested in June. The company said it should be excused from payments because of BP’s reckless handling of the failed deepwater operation. Average gasoline pump prices around the country dropped more than four cents from a week ago. A gallon of unleaded regular costs $2.713, according to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. A year ago the average was $2.58 a gallon. Demand remains weak.

James greeted by welcoming party BY TIM REYNOLDS Associated Press

associateD press

Yasmina Muniz folds a LeBron James jersey.

MIAMI — With LeBron James ready to stand alongside him, Dwyane Wade wants the offseason to end. Right now. There’s a championship for the Miami Heat to chase again, now that James and Chris Bosh have decided to play with him for years to come. And Wade already is

counting down the days. “It’s still surreal, man,” Wade said. “Me, Chris and ’Bron. We ready. We want to go to the gym now.” Wade, James and Bosh were together in their new home building for the first time Friday, as the Heat braced for 13,000 fans to arrive for a welcome party. Dozens of workers were summoned to prepare for a raucous celebration. If Heat president Pat Riley gets

his way, it’ll be the first of many for the NBA’s newest star cluster — a grouping everyone, even Wade, is still getting used to. “When I look around and see No. 6 and No. 1 on the court with me, that’s when it’s going to see real,” he said. Until now, No. 6 meant Mario Chalmers, No. 1 meant Dorell Wright. Chalmers will be back (wearing No. 15, his college number,

probably) and Wright still could return, but going forward those digits belong to others. James will wear No. 6 instead of his usual 23. Bosh will don No. 1 instead of No. 4, Wade said, because he “wanted a new beginning.” And even Wade — who considers his No. 3 sacred — thought about switching his number as well.



Thomas happy, healthy BY MIKE LONDON

Oakland Athletics prospect David Thomas has always been good at any sport he’s attempted. The last year or so he’s had to try his hand at a new athletic endeavor. Hurdling. As in hurdling two major physical setbacks. A broken finger cost Thomas the last month of the 2009 season and a shoulder injury shaved THOMAS two months off his current season as the center fielder for the Stockton Ports in the advanced Class A California League. A drive was lashed to a gap back in April, and Thomas has never been one to accept a ball falling in uncontested. He dived. He made a great catch. He also separated his shoulder. “It has been a struggle to stay healthy, but I’m finally recovered, feeling pretty good and getting my timing back,” Thomas said. “But it’s true I’ve missed a lot of atbats and spent some time battling injuries. Every minor league stop is a stepping stone, and injuries have made taking the next step up a little harder.” Thomas got to come home while he was rehabbing his shoulder, and a big part of home for Thomas will always be Newman Park. Home runs flew at record rates when Thomas was in center field and Jerry Sands patrolled right for the Catawba Indians, and Thomas’ retired No. 7 is honored on the wall at Newman Park. He’ll become a member of the Catawba and SAC halls of fame down the road, and he was arguably the best all-around player ever to put on a Catawba uniform. Thomas was the reigning SAC Player of the Year and owned school career records for hits (344), runs (281), stolen bases (91) and triples (14) when the Athletics drafted him in the 14th round in 2008. Lightly recruited out of Ledford High School, he batted .386 at Catawba with 48 homers and 188 RBIs while making just two errors in four years. Coach Jim Gantt liked to joke that Thomas — a blonde switch-hitter who played an electric center field while wearing No. 7 and Catawba pinstripes — was a modernday Mickey Mantle, and Thomas did offer a pretty good impression of the New York Yankees legend.

Hayden Untz acknowledges past mistakes, but the future is exceptionally bright for the left-handed hitting second baseman. The West Rowan graduate is signing with Pitt Community College, the state’s hottest Juco baseball program after its fourth-place finish in the recent Division I Junior College World Series. Former East Rowan first baseman Trey Holmes helped put Pitt on the map locally with UNTZ two spectacular seasons in Greenville. Former East outfielder Zach Smith was a freshman starter for Pitt during its run to a regional championship and the World Series. Untz has been friends with Noah Holmes, Trey’s younger brother, since their childhood AAU days. He had gone along with the Holmes family on visits to Pitt and had witnessed its terrific facilities firsthand. Pitt became Untz’s No. 1 college choice during his senior year, and the Holmes family heartily recommended him to Pitt coach Tommy Easton. “Pitt was looking for a left-handed hitting middle infielder and said they weren’t easy to find,” Untz said. “Coach Easton came to watch me play for Rowan Legion at home against Burlington and at Stanly.” The stocky Untz is a pretty complete package as a player.

South, Rowan return to action tonight BY MIKE LONDON

Rowan County opens the Area III semifinals on the road tonight against Western Forsyth, while South Rowan starts a best-of-five series at home against Kernersville. South and Kernersville are like clockwork. They meet every seven years. South Rowan’s first plunge into the world of American Legion baseball in 1996 was terminated in rude

fashion by Kernersville. South didn’t qualify for the Southern Division playoffs on its maiden voyage, but it was added to the Northern Division playoffs as a replacement for disqualified Thomasville. South was granted the No. 8 seed and its reward was a first-round date with top-seeded Kernersville. Predictably, South was mashed in three straight games by the eventual Area III champion. South gained a measure of revenge in 2003, beating Kernersville

3-2 in a wild, third-round series. Andrew Morgan won the deciding game at Kernersville’s field, and Brett Shore capped his phenomenal series with a 5-for-6 effort. Now it’s South Rowan (25-5), a No. 1 seed for the first time, against Kernersville (18-11), a deceivingly low No. 6 seed. Like Rowan, Kernersville didn’t have a full roster until well into June because East Forsyth was the 4A state runner-up.

Rangers land Lee ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Cliff Lee is suddenly in the starting rotation for the AL West-leading Texas Rangers, who pulled off a big deal despite bankruptcy proceedings and unsettled ownership. The struggling Seattle Mariners sent the ace left-hander and reliever Mark Lowe to the Rangers on Friday for rookie first baseman Justin Smoak and three minor leaguers. Texas also receives cash as part of the deal for Lee, who can become a free agent after this season. While the Rangers might have a hard time affording Lee long-term, they now have one of baseball’s best pitchers on board for a serious run at their first playoff appearance since 1999. “They’ve got a great team, they’re in first place and I’m going to try and go there and do everything I can to help them head in the direction they’re heading,” Lee said Friday before flying from Seattle to Texas. “They’re already in a good spot, have a great team and I just want to be one of the guys.” It was the third trade in less than a year for Lee, who was 8-3 with a 2.34 ERA in 13 starts for last-place Seattle. His first start for Texas could come Saturday night against Baltimore. In the first major deal leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, the Rangers landed one of the most coveted players on the market despite financial constraints that made it uncertain if they could execute such a move. “Everybody knows our situation. When we take on salary, we have to look at that and see if we can justify it within our budget,” team president Nolan Ryan said. “As long as we stay within our budget, we don’t really have restrictions on us to where we can’t do things.” Considering that a judge in May approved a multimillion-dollar loan from Major League Baseball to keep the Rangers afloat during bankruptcy proceedings, there are sure to be those who question the trade. “I’d guess they’ll be some unnamed sources, but I don’t expect a lot of phone calls,” general manager Jon Daniels said when asked if he anticipated any backlash from other clubs. The 31-year-old Lee has a $9 million salary this season and is expected to command a lucrative, multiyear deal in the offseason — unless Texas signs him to an extension before that. “It’s too early to speculate on something of that magnitude, with him not being here yet,” said Ryan, who is part of a group with Pittsburgh attorney Chuck Greenberg trying to buy

Kyle Busch wins Nationwide race at Chicago NASCAR’s second-tier series, moving him into sole possession of second place in the series’ career wins list. Only Mark Martin has more, with 48. Toyotas swept the top five spots as Logano finished second, followed by Brian Scott, David Reutimann and Jason Leffler. Danica Patrick finished 24th, her first finish inside the top 30 in five

Nationwide races this season. Patrick was two laps behind the leaders at the finish. “I definitely learned a lot,” Patrick said during a postrace TV interview. “It was really nice to run a clean race with no accidents, really, especially in the first part. It’s so tough when you spin at the beginning of the race. But we didn’t do that, so we just trucked along.”

It was seventh Nationwide win of the season for Busch, who also won the race at Chicagoland in 2008. Logano took the lead from Busch on a restart with 53 laps to go, and appeared to be cruising to victory when NASCAR officials issued a caution for debris with 15 laps left. It’s safe to say Logano wasn’t surprised by — or thrilled with — the decision.

in practice. Based on his observations of past races at Chicagoland, McMurray believes it will pay off tonight. “I committed to running the bottom the entire practice, never got off of it,” McMurray said. “Even if the car didn’t quite have the speed in it, I just made my car handle well down there.” McMurray was followed in qualifying by the Chevrolets of Jimmie Johnson and Tony Stewart. Johnson planned to fly home to Charlotte right away to spend time with

his wife and newborn daughter. He will return in time for tonight’s race. Johnson joked that his lack of sleep since his daughter was born Wednesday might have been a bonus. “I haven’t qualified all that well lately, so maybe six hours of sleep before qualifying is necessary over a couple of days to find the right rhythm,” he said. Now all Johnson and wife Chandra have to do is settle on a baby name. “We’re getting there,” he said.

JOLIET, Ill. — Finding speed hasn’t been a huge problem for Jamie McMurray this season. It’s the consistent results that have so far eluded him. McMurray won the pole position for tonight’s race at Chicagoland Speedway, turning a lap of 183.542 mph in his Chevrolet on Friday. It is the third pole of the season and sixth of his career for McMurray, who won the Daytona 500 in February but

has been struggling of late. “We’ve had good speed all year, and we haven’t been able to capitalize on enough good finishes,” McMurray said. “We’ve had good results. It seems like we either have a chance to win the race or we finish 30th, and we’ve got to get a little bit better, more consistent there. But again, the speed is the hardest thing to find.” McMurray said he and the No. 1 team concentrated on trying to run the low groove at the bottom of the track


JOLIET, Ill. — Even Kyle Busch acknowledged that his landmark victory in Friday’s NASCAR Nationwide series race at Chicagoland Speedway probably wouldn’t have happened if not for Brad Keselowski’s costly mistake. With Joey Logano out front and an overtime restart looming, Ke-

selowski ran out of gas just before the green flag fell. Busch was able to move closer to Logano, then pounced on the restart and held on for the win. “I don’t think I would have had a shot to win the race, because it was going to take too much to get alongside Joey had the restart gone with Keselowski in place,” Busch said. It was Busch’s 37th victory in

Grueling stage goes to Cavendish GUEUGNON, France — Mark Cavendish has won the sixth and longest stage of the Tour de France as the top contenders finished in a closely trailing pack. The British rider won his second straight stage on a hot Friday and raised his arms in celebration at the end of the 141.3-mile course from Montargis to Gueugnon, which favored sprinters. The standings didn’t change, with Swiss rider Fabian Cancellara retaining the overall leader’s yellow jersey. Defending champion Alberto Contador remained ninth. Seven-time champion Lance Armstrong is 18th.

Rising sophomore defensive back Darren Myles Jr. was charged with assault, resisting arrest and evading arrest, University of Tennessee police said.

That was just good enough to hold off Paul Goydos, who followed a 59 with a 3-under 68, leaving him at 127.  OAKMONT, Pa. — Heavy rain that began with 100 of the 156 golfers still to begin or complete the second round caused play to be suspended for the day at the U.S. Women’s Open.

CHARLOTTE — The Carolina Panthers signed third-round pick and former Appalachian State quarterback Armanti Edwards to a four-year, $2.5 million deal. Edwards will get about $710,000 in signing bonuses. The Panthers are converting Edwards to receiver. He could also return kicks.The Panthers traded next year’s second-round choice to New England to get an extra third-round choice in April to take the speedy Edwards 89th overall. Edwards is the only player in NCAA Division I history to pass for 10,000 yards and rush for 4,000. He led the Mountaineers to two national championships and a monumental upset of Michigan.Friday’s move leaves only two of Carolina’s 10 draft picks unsigned: second-round pick Jimmy Clausen and third-rounder Brandon LaFell. BUCS TAMPA, Fla. — Former Carolina guard Keydrick Vincent has signed a twoyear contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs announced the addition of the unrestricted free agent on Friday. To make room on the roster, the team released guard Sergio Render. Vincent was a starter for the Panthers the past two seasons. He has also played for Arizona, Baltimore and Pittsburgh during a nineyear career. RAIDERS ALAMEDA, Calif. — The Oakland Raiders agreed to contracts with third-round offensive lineman Jared Veldheer and fourth-rounder Bruce Campbell. Campbell was picked 106th overall out of Maryland. He has been playing guard since joining the team. CHARGERS SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Chargers agreed to four-year contracts with third-round draft pick Donald Butler and fifth-rounder Cam Thomas. Thomas is a defensive tackle from North Carolina who could eventually replace Jamal Williams, a 12-year veteran who was released and signed with the division rival Denver Broncos. CARDINALS TEMPE, Ariz. — The Arizona Cardinals have signed cornerback Jorrick Calvin, their sixth-round draft pick. LIONS ROSCOMMON, Mich. — Detroit Lions president Tom Lewand pleaded guilty Friday to driving while impaired, two weeks after he was pulled over in northern lower Michigan for driving erratically near a bar. Lewand was sentenced to six months of probation with $870 in fines and costs, according to court administrator Cynthia Esckilsen of the 83rd District Court in Roscommon.


4D • SATURDAY, JULY 10, 2010



THOMAS FROM 1D “I’m still a little bit overwhelmed about the retired jersey,” Thomas said. “That was an unbelievable thing Catawba did for me, and I’m humbled by it. I was fortunate to play on great teams with great players, and that’s why I had the kind of numbers I had.” One of Thomas’ special teammates was Sands, who is lighting things up this summer and has become one of the rising stars in the Los Angeles Dodgers farm system. “Jerry and I stay in touch quite a bit,” Thomas said with a laugh. “I guess he’s putting pressure on all of us.” Thomas is a different sort of player than Sands, a 6-4, 225-pound masher with light-tower power. Thomas is more of a get-on-base table-setter who’s going to fill the gaps with doubles. While Sands wouldn’t look out of place in an NFL huddle, Thomas wouldn’t stand out in a Wal-Mart checkout line. He looks pretty normal physically. He’s just extremely good at all the little things that mesh together to make a quality baseball player. Don’t be shocked if Thomas reaches the majors in a couple of years. He projects as a fourth outfielder, but it’s hard to put limits on anyone with his work ethic. Since high school, he’s proven wrong a million people who said he wasn’t this or couldn’t do that. “I’m definitely not an amazingly powerful guy or an amazingly fast guy,” Thomas said quietly. “I’ve got to play hard every single day, and I’ve got to be consistent every single day. So far that approach is working out OK for me.” Thomas, who turns 24 in three weeks, has held his own in pro ball — when he’s been in one piece. With a little better luck dodging injuries, he’d be with Midland in the Double-A Texas League right now. Shortly after the 2008 draft, Thomas opened eyes at Vancouver. Not only did he bat .290, 18 of his 60 hits were doubles. Between low A and advanced A, he batted a modest .243 in 2009, but he did have 20 extra-base hits and score 48 runs in 82 games. He’s batting .269 this season, mostly out of the No. 7 hole for Stockton, but he’s also gotten a few looks at the top of the order. He rapped a two-run double as the leadoff man Tuesday night. “Leadoff is where I’m most comfortable, but I try to take a leadoff mentality to the plate no matter where I bat in the lineup,” Thomas said. Thomas’ abbreviated season has included several thrills, including a two-out, two-run triple off the center-field wall to lift Stockton to an 8-6 win against Visalia last week. That hit came with two outs in the ninth. Thomas also hit a home run his first game back with Stockton following shoulder rehab. That day game on June 29 was broadcast on the MLB Network, and Thomas’ three-run blast in the fourth inning was the key blow in a win against Bakersfield. “Coach Gantt got a chance to see that one on TV, and a lot of people back home got to see it judging from all the calls I got,” Thomas said with a laugh. Thomas is capable of hitting two-run triples and three-run homers. But mostly he just needs to grind out 2-for-4s or 1-for-3s and keep playing center field at a high level to move up. “I’m in a very good league for hitters, we’ve got nice fans and I get to play in a nice ballpark,” Thomas said. “No complaints at all. I’ve just got to stay healthy.”


South Rowan second baseman fields a bouncing ball against Wilkes County as shortstop Gunnar Hogan looks on.

TONIGHT FROM 1D South Rowan coach Michael Lowman, who played for Rowan County in the late 1990s, can tell you all about Kernersville and its impact on North Carolina Legion baseball. From 1986-97, Kernersville Post 36 won eight Area III titles and two state championships. Coach Chad Loflin has put Kernersville, which blitzed higher seeds Randolph County and Burlington in the playoffs without losing a game, back on the Legion map. Loflin will lead his team against the best offensive team South’s ever had. South has smacked 44 homers in 30 games, led by right fielder Maverick Miles’ nine. Miles is batting .418 in his three-year Legion career and has set program records for hits (154), RBIs (114) and triples (nine). The High Point signee has 17 homers and 24 doubles and is one shy of tying those progam records. His next run scored will be his 100th. South lefty Dylan Walker (7-0) has tied the program record for wins in a season.

sean meyers/SALISBURY POST

Luke Thomas, right, and Noah Holmes, left, listen to Rowan coach Jim Gantt. Tradition-rich Rowan has little history with Western Forsyth (20-8), a program that’s only been around a handful of years. West Forsyth High, Chris Paul’s alma mater, also has turned out baseball talent, guys such as Steve LeFaivre, Erik Walker and Dan Poindexter — but they played for the Mocksville Legion team until Western Forsyth started its own program. Western Forsyth, the North’s No. 1 seed, has become a factor in a short time

under upbeat coach Kevin McIntosh, a longtime assistant at West Forsyth High. Andre McCoy, D.J. Little, Dustin Myers and Jonathan Holt lead Western Forsyth’s speedy offense. Western Forsyth has already been tested in the playoffs and has won two elimination games — against Winston-Salem in the first round and against talented High Point in the second. Rowan, led by the sizzling bats of Zach Smith and Noah Holmes, has also been tested. It had to win three straight in Round 2 to eliminate Mooresville. Rowan fans will need to take lawn chairs to Clemmons tonight. There’s limited seating capacity at West Forsyth High. Fans will notice the Erik Walker Memorial. A star at UNC Charlotte and a Tampa Bay draft pick, Walker was killed in a canoeing accident in 2006. Western Forsyth’s park is basically a hitter’s paradise, with a great green hitting background and short fences, so runs may be plentiful tonight and in Game 3. On Sunday, South and Rowan reverse roles, with Rowan, a No. 2 seed, home at Newman Park and South playing on Kernersville’s home turf at East Forsyth High.

UNTZ FROM 1D He runs well, fields smoothly, throws accurately and owns a sweet swing. He arrived at West as a junior after transferring from Northwest Cabarrus. There’s some pressure on anyone switching schools. That pressure mixed with sheer bad luck and considerable rust — he’d missed his sophomore season because of hip surgery — contributed to him getting off to an awful start with the Falcons. He had to finish with a bang just to hit .280. As a senior, it was a different story. He led the Falcons with a .414 batting average and was second on the team in RBIs (18) and steals (16). “I really wouldn’t change anything as far as coming to West,” Untz said. “It was for the best.” The only negatives his senior year were a couple of emotional meltdowns. He’s an intense player who puts pressure on himself to produce, and he crossed the line a few times. He was suspended early in the season by coach David Wright, but WRIGHT he started hitting as soon as he was reinstated. Later, an ejection sidelined him for West’s 5-4, nine-inning loss to East Rowan in the NPC tournament that ended the Falcons’ season. That was a tough lesson because his bat could have made the difference in that game. Off the field, Untz is as friendly, well-spoken and polite as any teenager around, and he vows he’s working to rein in his emotions between the lines. “I’ve done a lot better with that kind of thing in Legion ball, knowing Coach (Jim) Gantt’s not going to put up with that stuff,” Untz said. “I’m going to keep trying and I’m going to keep

Rowan County second baseman Hayden Untz catches a popup as shortstop Preston Troutman watches. getting better at it.” As a hitter, about the only thing he can get better at is going to the opposite field more. He’s a dead pull hitter. “I stand right on top of the plate, and that lets me pull the pitches down the middle and even middleaway,” Untz said. “I know I’ve got some work to do on the outside pitches, and I stress that every day.” Untz is not a prolific home run hitter — just two in two years at West and four this summer — but he does crush one occasionally. T. HOLMES His power could kick in consistently at Pitt as it did with Trey Holmes. “I do hit homers in BP, and I can usually tell right

away when I’ve hit one in a game,” Untz said. “I just look at what happened with Trey after he went down to Pitt. He improved so much down there, and that’s a path I really want to follow.” Untz has overcome physical obstacles to get to this point — a troublesome elbow and a hip ailment that has plagued him since childhood. He remembers his first hip surgery when he was 7, but he’s kept plugging, and when he’s healthy, he hits as many line drives as anyone. Untz is excited about hitting those liners for Pitt next season as it tries to duplicate this season’s success without Holmes and two pitchers who were taken in the MLB draft. “They’ve had a lot of pros at Pitt, and Zach Smith has told me how much he loves it down there,” Untz said. “I just want to go down there, stay healthy and do the very best I can.”

Strasburg to pitch July 16 WASHINGTON (AP) — Rookie Stephen Strasburg will start the Washington Nationals’ first game after the AllStar break, on July 16 at the Florida Marlins, then stick to a regular turn in the rotation until exhausting his 160innings limit for the season. After going six innings and earning the win in Washington’s 8-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Friday night, Strasburg had pitched 98 innings in 2010 — 422⁄3 in seven starts in the majors and 551⁄3 at two levels in the minors. That leaves 62 innings to reach the ceiling the Nationals set for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 amateur draft as he adjusts from college to professional baseball. If he continues to average about six innings per outing, that would mean about 10 more starts this season, which would carry him into the first week of September. “When the innings are done, they’re done,” Washington manager Jim Riggleman said. “If that falls at the end of August or early September, then that’ll be it.” Riggleman said the Nationals are setting aside a plan that would have spread out Strasburg’s appearances with extra rest in order to have the right-hander available until the end of September.

NEW YORK — Melky Cabrera and Omar Infante hit back-to-back homers with two outs in the seventh inning off knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, and NL East-leading Atlanta beat New York 4-2 on Friday night. Infante, the All-Star utility player, had four hits and scored twice to help the Braves open a four-game lead over New York, their biggest margin of the season. Billy Wagner made his first appearance at Citi Field against his former team and received mostly boos when he was announced. He pitched a perfect ninth for his 20th save. Troy Glaus had a two-out RBI single and Cabrera scored on shortstop Jose Reyes’ two-out error in the first as Atlanta improved to 21-25 on the road. The Braves took two of three from the Phillies before coming to New York, where they were swept in a three-game set April 23-25. Phillies 9, Reds 7, 10 innings PHILADELPHIA — Ryan Howard hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning after Philadelphia scored six runs in the ninth to tie it. Staked to a 7-1 lead by the ninth, Reds starter Mike Leake appeared to be cruising toward his first career complete game. Greg Dobbs hit a three-run homer and pinch-hitter Cody Ransom followed with a tying, two-run shot off Francisco Cordero to make it 7-all. Raul Ibanez opened the 10th with a double off Arthur Rhodes (3-3) and Howard hit his 17th homer. Cardinals 8, Astros 0 HOUSTON — Adam Wainwright pitched eight scoreless innings and Matt Holliday hit a three-run homer for St. Louis. Albert Pujols drove in three runs and Kyle McClellan pitched a perfect ninth to complete the shutout for St. Louis and end a three-game skid.

Milwaukee’s ryan Braun, middle, is mobbed after his game-winning hit on Friday. Nationals 8, Giants 1 WASHINGTON — Stephen Strasburg gave up a homer to the first batter he faced. then shut down San Francisco, allowing three hits in six innings, and Adam Dunn hit two homers for Washington. It was Strasburg’s first win in nearly a month. Strasburg (3-2, 2.32 ERA) finished with eight strikeouts and one walk. The No. 1 pick in the 2009 draft struck out Pat Burrell swinging at a 98 mph fastball to end the sixth. Brewers 5, Pirates 4, 10 innings MILWAUKEE — Ryan Braun’s two-out single scored Rickie Weeks from second

base in the 10th inning and Milwaukee snapped a five-game losing streak. Milwaukee tied it at 4 in the ninth on George Kottaras’ RBI triple off Octavio Dotel, who blew his fourth save in 23 chances. The Pirates have lost four consecutive games and 22 of their last 24 on the road. Marlins 3, Diamondbacks 2 PHOENIX — Ricky Nolasco won his fourth straight decision and Dan Uggla drove in two runs with a bloop single and a broken-bat infield hit to lead the Florida Marlins over Dan Haren. Nolasco (9-6) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings, striking out six.

Boston hits four homers to bury Blue Jays Associated Press

TORONTO — Jon Lester pitched six innings to win his third consecutive start and Boston hit four homers in a 143 victory over Toronto on Friday night. Kevin Youkilis, Adrian Beltre, Mike Cameron and Bill Hall connected for Boston, which snapped a four-game skid and improved to 6-1 against the Blue Jays this season. Hall finished with three hits and four RBIs. Lester (11-3) allowed two runs and four hits, struck out six and walked two. He is 3-0 with a 1.64 ERA in his last three starts and has won 11 of 12 decisions overall. John McDonald and Jose Molina went deep for the Blue Jays, who lead the major leagues with 132 homers. Boston is second with 116. White Sox 8, Royals 2 CHICAGO — Mark Buehrle pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning and A.J. Pierzynski hit two home runs as Chica-

go won its sixth straight. Buehrle took a line drive off his right (non-throwing) wrist on Scott Podsednik’s leadoff single in the first, but was not seriously injured. The left-hander allowed six hits in seven-plus innings and was replaced by Sergio Santos after walking David DeJesus to start the eighth. Buehrle (8-7) is 5-1 in his last six starts as Chicago’s pitching continues to be a major reason for the team’s recent tear — 23 wins in 28 games. Kansas City had its threegame winning streak snapped and lost for the third time in 11 games. Indians 9, Rays 3 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Jayson Nix homered for the sixth time in his last seven games and Jhonny Peralta hit a three-run homer for Cleveland. Cleveland went ahead 3-1 on Nix’s solo shot off James Shields (7-9) in the fifth. Peralta’s three-run drive off Andy Sonnanstine and an RBI double

by Jason Donald made it 8-2 in the eighth. The Indians ended Tampa Bay’s six-game winning streak. Tigers 7, Twins 3 DETROIT — Magglio Ordonez drove in three of Detroit’s seven runs over two innings. AL Central-leading Detroit won its fourth straight and for the 16th time in 18 home games. The Twins have lost three straight and six of eight. Minnesota has slipped to third place and trails the Tigers by three games after having a 11/2-game lead on them at the start of the month. Justin Verlander (11-5) gave up two runs over 5 1-3 innings. Robbie Weinhardt inherited the bases loaded in the sixth and got Delmon Young to hit into an inning-ending double play. Yankees 6, Mariners 1 SEATTLE — Phil Hughes joined teammates CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte as 11-game winners before the All-Star break, and Mark Teixeira’s two home runs powered the New

York Yankees to a victory over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night. On the day the Yankees failed in their attempt to acquire 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner Cliff Lee from Seattle, New York ran its season-best winning streak to seven games as its young right-hander continued to build on his stellar season. Angels 6, A’s 5 OAKLAND, Calif. — Erick Aybar homered to lead off the 10th inning, Torii Hunter and Bobby Abreu also went deep and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Oakland Athletics on Friday night to end a five-game road losing streak. Aybar’s drive off A’s closer Andrew Bailey (0-3) sailed over the scoreboard in right-center. The Angels had taken the lead on Hunter’s two-run homer with two outs in the eighth but it didn’t last long. Juan Rivera botched the play for an error that scored Suzuki for the tying run.

Jackson not in awe of Miami BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press

CHARLOTTE — Stephen Jackson sent out a couple of messages on Friday, the day after LeBron James shook the NBA with his decision to form a superstar trio in Miami. First, vacation time should be over for his Charlotte Bobcats teammates now that they’re in perhaps the most powerful division in the league. Second, don’t crown the Heat champions just yet. “They’re going to be great,” Jackson said. “It’s going to be good for basketball. It’s going to be good for the city of Miami. It’s going to be exciting for the game. At the same time, they’ve got to go out there and win games just like every other team.” While he thinks James should have signed with Chicago or stayed in Cleveland and “showed a little more loyalty,” Jackson isn’t backing down from the challenge of being in the same Southeast Division as a now stacked Heat team that also includes Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. “I’m not one of those guys who’s going to lay down just because they put all those guys on the same team,” Jackson said. “I don’t think anybody on my team is going to lay down. We’re going to come out and play. Everybody has respect for those guys, but at the same time you have to win games to get respect on the court.” While Charlotte is hamstrung from making a splash because of salary cap woes, its rivals have made giant moves. None are bigger than what the Heat accomplished. “If I were LeBron, I would have gone to Chicago or I would have stayed home and showed a little more loyalty to my city and my team,” Jackson said. “But I’m not LeBron. That’s the best decision for him and everybody has to live with it.”

13,000 free seats for the welcoming bash were made available online at 4 p.m. — and were gone in an hour. FroM 1d “The road to history,” “Then I realized, three is James wrote early Friday on magical, and now it represents Twitter, “starts now.”  more than just my number,” Maybe it’s a seismic shift Wade said. “It represents the three of us making sacrifices in the NBA landscape.

Cleveland moving forward Associated Press

CLEVELAND — For the Cleveland Cavaliers, life after LeBron James will be very different. Without James, the Cavs are no longer title contenders and now must revamp a roster missing its best player. The work of general manager Chris Grant and new coach Byron Scott is complicated by owner Dan Gilbert’s pledge that the Cavs will win a championship before James does. Gilbert’s pointed re- SCOTT marks were the talk of Cleveland, easing the loss but also raising questions about how he would have acted had the megastar announced he would stay. Scott, who accepted the job last month not knowing if James would be on his roster, said he liked what Gilbert said. “He showed last night his passion to win,” Scott said at a news conference at Cleveland Clinic Courts, the team’s state-of-the-art $25 million training facility Gilbert built not far from James’ home. “He wants to win. That’s the bottom line. I want an owner like that.” BOBCATS CHARLOTTE — The Charlotte Bobcats made a long-term commitment to forward Tyrus Thomas, coming to terms on a fiveyear, $40 million contract with the restrict-

ed free agent. The deal was struck shortly after the New Jersey Nets presented a front-loaded offer sheet that would have been difficult for Charlotte to match because it’s close to hitting the luxury tax, a payroll figure owner Michael Jordan said the team wouldn’t exceed. BULLS DEERFIELD, Ill. — Carlos Boozer sees championship potential in Chicago, even without James. “You can’t be afraid to play somebody because they have three really good players,” Boozer said Friday. “How are you going to win if you’re afraid to play? We’re not going to be afraid to play. We’re going to fight, we’re going to attack. We’re going to go out there and see what happens.” A person familiar with the situation says Kyle Korver is following Boozer to Chicago. SPURS SAN ANTONIO — Matt Bonner has reached a tentative agreement to return to the Spurs.. TRADE NEW YORK — The New York Knicks sent All-Star forward David Lee to Golden State in a sign-and-trade deal Friday, giving the Warriors the marquee player they sought this offseason. Forwards Anthony Randolph, Kelenna Azubuike and Ronny Turiaf go to the Knicks, who are moving closer to rounding out their roster for next season. New York also receives a 2012 second-round draft pick.
