Williams decides against 2nd term
RAIN AT LAST

Under the cover of umbrellas, three pedestrians cross Main street in salisbury during a brief and much needed rainfall.
A second member of the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education has announced she won’t be running for re-election. South area representative Patty Williams, who could not be reached for comment for Sunday’s story about filing starting Friday, sent an e-mail to the Post saying she is not planning to run for a second term. “This has been a very rewarding and ‘eyeopening’ experience,” she said, “and I will continue to support the Rowan-Salisbury School System however I can. Four years ago, when I decided to run for the school board, my father had just died and I wanted to do something in memory of the 40 years he dedicated to education. WILLIAMS “Since that time, my sister passed away very suddenly. My mother is now in a nursing home, and I want to be able to spend what extra time I have helping her.” Williams’ father, the late Jerry Pless, worked as a teacher, coach and assistant

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College raises tuition rates BY KATHY CHAFFIN email@example.com
Tuition is going up at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, effective at the start of its fall semester on Aug. 16. The N.C. General Assembly voted to raise the rate for in-state students from $50 per credit hour to $56.50 per credit hour for up to 16 hours, according to Jeff Lowrance, director of college relations for Rowan-Cabarrus. That would mean an extra $104 per semester for students taking 16 hours and a maximum of $904 tuition per semester, Lowrance said. The tuition for out-of-state students — already almost five times higher — went up from $241.30 per credit hour to $248.50 per credit hour, an increase of $7.20 per credit hour. Lowrance encouraged any student who may face a hardship as a result of the increase to talk to someone in RowanCabarrus’ financial office as
quickly as possible. Students were informed of the tuition increase in a mass e-mail sent out last week, he said. A letter explaining the increase will also go out with the first of the fall semester tuition bills this week. “That may be the first that some students hear that tuition rates have increased,” Lowrance said. Elana Miles, last year’s Rowan-Cabarrus Student Government Association president, said the increase will hurt some students. Though $6.50 an hour for in-state students may not sound like a lot, she said it will amount to $78 a semester for students taking 12 hours. Some of the students who just missed qualifying for financial assistance through the Federal Pell Grant Program are barely getting by paying for tuition and books,” Miles said. “I know everything goes up,” she said, “but if I didn’t have a Pell Grant, I couldn’t afford to go to school right

now.” Some students on tight budgets may have to reduce their semester hours, she said. Miles, who is 46, hopes to graduate next spring with an associate’s degree in computer information technology. She was working for Lowe’s Home Improvement when she injured her back five years ago and was faced with either staying at home on disability or finding a new job that was not as strenuous. In considering another career choice, Miles said she decided on a profession that she thought would remain viable in a slow economy. “As long as there are computers, they will need people out there,” she said.
A resident of Landis, Miles will serve this coming year as the Central District representative in the North Carolina Community Colleges Student Government Association. Lowrance said tuition rates are going up for all 58 community colleges in North Carolina. “The General Assembly sets community college tuition rates,” he said. “Community colleges really don’t have a say in it.” Tuition costs also went up last year for the first time since 2006. Lowrance said RowanCabarrus officials send tuition money to Raleigh as soon as they collect it. State officials then use a formula to allocate money to the different com-
munity colleges, he said. Rowan-Cabarrus staff will be available to talk to prospective students about financial aid options at Friday’s “RCCC Info Day for Future Students.” The event will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. at the North Campus in Salisbury and the South Campus in Concord. Staff will be set up at tables to talk to prospective students about programs of study; how to apply to the college; placement testing; and starting classes this fall. “It’s not too late to apply and register for fall semester classes,” said Pat Cannon, Rowan-Cabarrus student recruiter. “However, new students need to begin the process as soon as possible. RCCC Info Day for Future Students will be a great opportunity to ask questions and take the first step toward registering for fall semester classes.” New students must apply in order to be enrolled. Every prospective student must complete an application on-line at
www.rowancabarrus. edu/admissions, allowing two business days for processing. Class registration runs through July 29. The community college’s North Campus is located at I85 (Exit 75) and Jake Alexander Boulevard in Salisbury. The South Campus is at 1531 Trinity Church Road, just off N.C. 73 and I-85 at exit 55 in Concord. Rowan-Cabarrus offers day, evening and online classes for adults and high school students. Those wanting to pursue a four-year degree can take the first two years of college at the community college at an affordable price without traveling far from home. GED and basic skills programs are also offered. Adults 65 and older can take classes tuition free. For more information, log onto the RowanCabarrus website at www.rowancabarrus.edu/ registration.

BP robots successful in getting new cap on leaking Gulf well NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Undersea video showed BP robots landed a new, tighterfitting cap on top of the gushing Gulf of Mexico oil leak Monday, raising hopes that the crude could be kept from polluting the water for the first time in nearly three months. Placing the cap on top of the leak was the climax of two days of delicate preparation work and a day of slowly lowering it into position. The capping project — akin to building an underwater Lego tower — is just a temporary fix, but the oil giant’s best hope yet for containing the spill. Around 6:30 p.m. CDT, live video streams trained on the wellhead showed the cap being slowly lowered into place, 11 hours after BP Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said the company was close to putting the seal in place. Company officials did not comment on the operation Monday evening or say how long it would take to latch the

BP hopes to fully contain the oil leak gushing since the Deepwater Horizon exploded April 20. The plan calls for a larger cap over the blowout preventer, and a total of four vessels at the surface that can process oil and gas.

Officers noticed an oily substance on the suspects’ clothing and found bundles of marijuana coated with oil in the car. The officers were then led to the nearby tank car, Villanueva said. The tanker was moved about a half-block to a safer area, and additional bundles were found inside. Investigators used Fire Department ladders to reach the hatch atop the tanker. Marijuana removed from inside was lowered to the ground by bucket. Thirty-eight bundles of marijuana were removed from the tanker before the operation was halted. Authorities said a similar number remained inside.

Schultz explained that responding officers had seen people down and believed they were dead, then continued into the building to search for the gunman. Officers who arrived later determined they had survived. A third victim was double-counted by a hospital. Schultz said the gunman carried a handgun and investi-
L.A. police find pot stash in railroad tanker LOS ANGELES (AP) — A late-night police pursuit ended with a drug bust and the discovery Monday of thousands of pounds of marijuana concealed in a railroad tank car that entered the U.S. from Mexico this month. Police Detective Gus Villanueva said numerous bundles of pot were removed from the gooey inside of the petroleum rail tanker by late morning and many more packages were still inside. The retrieval operation in a rail yard southeast of downtown Los Angeles was halted at about 10 a.m. because something suspicious was found inside and a bomb squad was summoned, Villanueva said. Fire Capt. Steve Ruda described the object as small and cylindrical. The bomb squad remained at the scene late Monday afternoon.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A gunman angry about a domestic violence dispute with his girlfriend forced his way into the manufacturing plant where she works and killed two employees Monday before turning the gun on himself. Four others were wounded in a rampage police said was motivated by the shooter’s disgust over a domestic violence dispute involving the girlfriend. Police Chief Ray Schultz said it was not immediately clear whether the 37-year-old girlfriend was among the victims in the murder-suicide at the fiber optics and solar manufacturing plant in Albuquerque. He said the targeted woman had told co-workers she planned to report domestic violence to authorities. It was also not known how the shooter got past security at Emcore Corp., but his first victim was a person who confronted him on the way into the facility. Then he went through the building firing shots at several employees and leaving behind a gruesome scene of blood and shell casings across the company headquarters. Responding officers had to step past several victims — one dead and several wounded — as they raced into the building to stop the gunman. Mayhem unfolded as he opened fire, sending employees fleeing for cover as police locked down the entire neighborhood.

Suspect sought in Coldstone robbery
Farmers Day set for Friday
A man who robbed the Coldstone Creamery off Faith Road on Saturday night is still on the loose. A clerk who was cleaning up around 10:30 p.m. had propped the back door open so she could take trash to a dumpster. Salisbury Police Deputy Chief Steve Whitley said a young man was waiting and watching. He entered through the back door, grabbed the clerk and forced her to open the cash register. He took the money and fled on foot. A second employee, who was putting ice cream in the cooler, heard the disturbance. The thief left just as she came out of the cooler. The man didn’t show a gun or any weapon. He will face a charge of common law or strong-armed robbery. The clerk was not injured. The man is described as being between 16 and 25 years old, 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-9 and weighing 140 pounds. He pulled a navy or black shirt off and wrapped it around his head during the robbery. Anyone with information is asked to call the Salisbury Police Department at 704-6385333 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245. Callers can remain anonymous.
New legislation will impact Kannapolis residents BY HUGH FISHER email@example.com
KANNAPOLIS – The results of the N.C. General Assembly’s short session will have a direct impact on Kannapolis, City Manager Mike Legg said in his report to the Kannapolis City Council on Monday. In addition to N.C. House Bill 1717, which lets the city appoint a member to the RowanKannapolis ABC board after July 2011, there were other surprises. Legg described the fight to keep a surprise bill from undermining Kannapolis’ interbasin transfer (IBT) agreement – the measure that lets municipalities pump water from the Catawba River to supply Cabarrus. House Bill 1765, Legg said, “essentially said we had to take all our IBT water from the Yadkin before we could take a drop from the Catawba.” The current IBT, set to take effect in 2015, will allow Kannapolis and Concord to withdraw up to 10 million gallons of water per day from the Catawba. Those amounts decrease when the state is under drought conditions. But although the IBT has been resolved, Legg said one of its many opponents had apparently asked for legislation to require additional review. “In the end, a lot of people were helpful in squashing this,” Legg said, describing comments by legislators, calls from city leaders and a letter from Concord Mayor Scott Padgett. “I fully expect that, in the long session the same thing will come back up and we’ll have

China Grove Main Street was packed with vendors and customers during the annual Farmers Day last year.
Annual event hits the streets of China Grove for the 29th year BY SHAVONNE POTTS firstname.lastname@example.org
CHINA GROVE — This year, Farmers Day will begin with a Friday afternoon concert in the park, tying a fairly new event with a longstanding tradition. “A lot of it is the same, but this is the biggest change,” said Lee Withers, China Grove town councilman and organizer of the event. Farmers Day has always been held the third Saturday in July, beginning at 8 a.m. The first Singing in Park concert started in April, with the China Grove Parks and Recreation Department spearheading the event. Friday’s event is from 6 to 9:30 p.m., at Hannah Park, between F&M and Community One banks along Main Street. The featured musicians include the Christian bands 4Given Souls and Offered Souls, along with top 40s band Nantucket. “We encourage people to patron downtown merchants,” Withers said. The concert is an extension of what Farmers Day is about and that is “promoting local businesses and getting people in town,” he said. Farmers Day is sponsored by the town, Rowan Regional and several area businesses. The 29th annual Farmers Day starts at 8 a.m. with the opening ceremony at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. The daylong event will feature a variety of activities throughout the day. Entertainment will be provided on three stages — the main stage near the Captain’s Galley, a stage in Hannah Park and the children’s stage at Centerview and Main streets. There will be local, state and regional
acts performing throughout the day. The N.C. State University dance team will perform at 10 a.m. and the headliner, the Extrordinaires, a beach/top 40 band, will perform around 7 p.m. The event will also feature some vendors and crafters. One group from Mount Zion United Church of Christ, located at South Main Street, China Grove, is holding a raffle for a handmade quilt and a handcrafted dollhouse. “We are trying to raise enough pledges to fund a life center,” said church member Betty Corriher. Corriher said the ultimate goal is to expand the church’s preschool program to include a day care, a new building for a afterschool and senior adult care and a gym/auditorium. The quilts are made from men’s ties. Many of the ties came from men in the church. Corriher and Martha Isley worked on the 60-by-80-inch quilt for some time. Tickets will be available at the event for $1. There will also be gift baskets available for raffle. Billy Corriher, who works for Davidson College, made the dollhouse. “He just likes working with his hands,” Betty Corriher said. The group is expected to have a table on display near Brooke & Brooke Attorneys at Law in the 100 block of South Main Street. Farmers Day concludes around 9:30 p.m. The festival is along Main Street, extending from Patterson Street to Ketchie Street. There is no admission charge.
Farmers Day activities • A dunking both featuring players from the South Rowan Legion baseball team and coach Michael Lowman, Carson High School teacher of the year Amie Furr and several China Grove Police Officers. “Anybody who has gotten a ticket recently, come out,” joked Lee Withers, China Grove town councilman. • Little Mr./Miss Farmers Day Contest begins at 9 a.m. • Brian’s Grill, hot dog eating contest beginning at 2 p.m. This is the first year for the contest, Withers said. Registration for the contest is $10. Those interested can sign up in advanced at Brian’s Grill or the morning of the event. “It’s something different. The grill is a steadfast in China Grove. We were talking and have kicked the idea around for awhile,” Withers said. • Children’s stage will feature Ron Johnson and Burns & Co., beginning at 10:30 a.m. • Carson High School jazz band will perform at 4 p.m., at the Hannah Park stage. • Dimensions Dance Arts of Rockwell will perform on the main stage at 11 a.m. • An expanded car/antique tractor show on display, at the north end of town. • The China Grove Farmers Market, which has traditionally been a separate entity, will continue Saturday near the China Grove Roller Mill. • Red Cross blood mobile, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. near China Grove Church of God, Franklin Street.

East Spencer awards Officer of the Year BY KARISSA MINN firstname.lastname@example.org
The Town of East Spencer presented its Officer of the Year award to a female officer for the first time Monday. Cassandra Rankin, of Woodleaf, is a gang prevention officer with the East Spencer Police Department who also works patrol.
“She has been the most consistent officer we’ve had over the last year,” said Interim Police Chief Floyd Baldo, who presented the award for 2010 at the Town Board of Aldermen meeting on Monday. Baldo said Rankin has been one of the most productive officers in East Spencer, with at least the second highest number of arrests. Even during
field training, he said, Rankin showed more initiative than officers with twice her experience. “She impressed me with her spirit and her desire to be proactive,” Baldo said Monday. “That’s exactly what East Spencer needs.”

WOODLEAF — William Franklin Wetmore, 95, of Woodleaf, passed away July 11, 2010, at the North Carolina State Veterans Home.

woman currently on the East Spencer police force. According to Rankin, her gender can be both a challenge and an advantage in the field. “Men are more muscular, and some of them really don’t like taking orders from a woman,” she said Monday. “But ... sometimes some people look at us as mother figures — or aunts or sisters — and we can diffuse things quicker than men can.” Another challenge for Rankin, she said, is balancing her job with her home life as a single mother of two. She finds
ways to make it work, though, for the sake of those she serves. “I like helping people,” Rankin said. “I like to get bad people off the streets, to bring the victims some closure and let them find peace.” Rankin has worked with the East Spencer Police department since September of 2009. Previously, she was employed with the Salisbury Police Department and the N.C. Department of Corrections.
department. But the future of the TIF bond issue that would supply that $15 million is also up in the air. Legg said there had been no further word since rating agency Standard & Poor’s visited Kannapolis last week. Within two weeks, he said, the agency is expected to announce whether they will give the projected bond sale a pos-
itive rating, allowing the longdelayed sale to go forward. “If it’s not positive, if they have reservations or say no, we’re back to square one,” Legg said. “I don’t have any other answers in my back pocket, so it’ll be wait and see on that point.”
FROM 3a He describes Rankin as a “kind-hearted woman” who knows when to be tough and doesn’t let people take advantage of her. “She’s a good role model for a lot of these younger girls, including her daughters,” Baldo said. “She’s done a real good job.” Not only is Rankin the first female to be awarded Officer of the Year, she is also the only
KANNAPOLIS FROM 3a to do the same again,” Legg said. He and Mayor Bob Misenheimer praised House Bill 80, which bans “Internet sweepstakes” parlors as of December 1. Following the meeting, Misenheimer said the so-called Internet cafes that operate as sweepstakes houses are detrimental to the community. Finally, House Bill 1444 will allow Kannapolis to annex small parcels of property that are already “landlocked” – surrounded by city land. Also, Legg said that N.C. Sen. Fletcher Hartsell also introduced a provision to H.B. 1444 allowing the municipality to de-annex a piece of property up to 5 acres to benefit the Cabarrus Health Alliance. Legg said that measure would only be useful if the health agency’s search for land required it to build on county, as opposed to city, property. It was unclear whether or not the agency actually requested the measure, and the council did not discuss it further. Legg described Hartsell’s action as a “fallback position” for the Cabarrus Health Alliance. A decision is expected from the Cabarrus Board of Commissioners regarding the future of $15 million in bond revenue earmarked for a new facility for the health

Kannapolis City Council business • Donna Carpenter of the Cabarrus Convention and Visitors Bureau reported on the agency’s 2010-11 marketing plan. Among other items, Carpenter reported on plans to publicize a revamped “Dale Trail” with landmarks related to the late Dale Earnhardt. This comes following settlement of disputes with Dale Earnhardt Inc. which Carpenter did not elaborate. New brochures and maps are set to be printed in the months ahead, Carpenter said. Although occupancy was down in 2008, the last year of statistics, Carpenter said overall demand for hotel rooms was up. She also said that efforts were underway to bring conventions, especially scientific gatherings, to Kannapolis. • Council members approved an amendment to relist a lot in the Kannapolis Gateway Business Park after a sale
agreement fell through. The vote was 6-to-0. Council member Randy Cauthen was not present at the meeting. In 2008, after four rounds of upset bidding, McAlpine Group, LLC was awarded the right to buy a 1.6 acre plot on Macedonia Church Road. The sale price in that bid was $385,000. But, Legg said, the group did not follow through on the process. The land will now be relisted with a sale price of $332,500. Legg said McAlpine Group had paid $19,200 in earnest money as part of the deal. The city retains that money. • The first reading of a text amendment to the Unified Development Ordinance was presented. That amendment, if approved, would establish a set of standards and a process pertaining to stormwater variances.

Eugene Edward Deal SALISBURY — Eugene Edward Deal, 93, a loving, gentle man, entered the arms of his Savior July 10, 2010. He lived a simple life that by comparison may have seemed to be one lacking in wealth or position. However, he was the best husband, brother, neighbor and friend and most of all, an example of what a Christian man should be to all he came in contact with. He was born Oct. 10, 1916, to Otho Edward Deal and Mabel Eugenia Overcash Deal. He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Evelyn Smith Deal, on July 8, 2005. He was also preceded in death by his brother, Wayne Wilson Deal. He lived with his loving sister and caregiver, Frances Deal Freeman, the last four years of his life beside of the home place where he grew up and was born. Gene loved his home in the country and always wanted to come back for the years he had left. The home place on Deal Road served as the local post office for many years. Gene had strong ties to Rowan County as his father, Otho Deal, along with good friend Lotan Corriher, were two young men with a vision who went to Hickory, bought a small college, and brought it back home to become one of Salisbury's greatest treasures, Catawba College. Gene loved life and loved his neighborhood of Lansing Drive in Charlotte. He enjoyed many afternoons mowing and talking to his good buddy Rodney Hutchison. Gene never met a sport he did not like but loved the sport of baseball the most. Gene played for the Kannapolis Baseball Club in 1940 and played for the Catawba Indians who won the 1936 North State Conference pennant. Gene also played for the Mooresville Moors and was offered a chance to play professional for the Atlanta Braves but decided to marry his sweetheart Evelyn Deal and start his career. His love of baseball never ended and Gene cleared a lot behind his Charlotte home building a small baseball field to help coach and mentor surrounding Lansing neighborhood children. The field became fondly known as “Deal Field.” One child in particular, Mike Fox, went on to play for Chapel Hill and is now the head baseball coach for Chapel Hill, Gene's alma mater. Gene even at the young age of 93 went to see Mike coach Chapel Hill to a play-off victory at Durham Field just last year (he sat behind the dug-out of course). Gene loved to travel with his wife, Evelyn. Gene loved adventure, telling of the time when he and Evelyn wanted to ride a roller coaster, so they decided to travel to Coney Island and spend the weekend. Gene graduated from Landis High School in 1933. He then graduated from Catawba College with a major in Education, English, History and Administration. After serving in the Navy for two years, Gene then came home and furthered his education by receiving his Masters Degree in Social Work from UNC Chapel Hill. Gene began his teaching career Biscoe High School from 1935-1942 teaching social studies and coaching baseball, football and basketball. From 1941 to 1944 he taught social studies and coached at Mount Ulla High School and served as Athletic Director. He and Evelyn settled in Charlotte and Gene began his social work and counseling career. He worked his way up from probation counselor to chief probation counselor for the entire Mecklenburg County Juvenile System until his retirement. Gene grew up at First Reformed Church in Landis and later joined St. Marks Lutheran Church of Charlotte. Upon his return back to Mooresville, Gene reunited with his home Church in Landis. Mr. Deal received the Certification of Appreciation from the American Red Cross. He was a member of the Optimist baseball squad and Jr. Optimist work committee chairman, heading the Optimist Park Project. In 1984, he received the award of Charlotte Optimist Man of the Year. He was a long-time member and served on the Board of Directors for the Charlotte Optimist Club. Gene and his wife, Evelyn, were always supportive of Academic Scholarships for those in need at Queens University in Charlotte and Catawba College. Survivors include sister Frances Deal Freeman of Mooresville; sister-in-law Helen Deal of Mooresville; sister-in-law Mildred Roberts (Ashley) of Lake Norman; sister-in-law Lee Ballard (Jerry); and several nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Service and Visitation: Services for Mr. Deal will be held at First Reformed Church in Landis 3 p.m. Wednesday, July 14 by Rev. David Franks. The church is located at 210 N. Central Ave., Landis, NC 28088. Visitation will be one hour before the service. Memorials: May be given to First Reformed Church for the Michael Williams Scholarship Fund, 210 N. Central Ave., Landis, NC 28088. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Whalen of Mint Hill, Rowan Regional Hospice, Pastor David Franks and Richard Myers as they have all been special angels to the family.

for what they do for the city.” According to a press release, the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award reflects the commitment of City Council and staff to meeting the highest principals of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the budget award, Kannapolis satisfied nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well an entity’s budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a communications device. The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financing Reporting is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting.
NC congressman won’t support offshore drilling WILMINGTON (AP) — A North Carolina congressman said Monday that he won’t support offshore drilling until the cause of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is fully understood. Rep. Mike McIntyre made the comments during an oil spill preparedness meeting at the New Hanover County Emergency Operations Center in Wilmington. McIntyre said environmental concerns and safety precautions must be taken before he’d support any drilling off North Carolina’s coast. Local, state and federal agencies spent the morning discussing plans if oil from the Gulf spill hits North Carolina’s shores. Officials say they have reviewed and updated cleanup plans and are talking with their counterparts in the Gulf. North Carolina is also sending representatives to the Gulf states in the coming weeks to tour the area and learn about response techniques being used there. Dr. Michael Voiland, executive director of NC Sea Grant
College Program, displayed several maps showing how the oil has been dispersed in the sea. He said any oil that reaches North Carolina will wash up as tar balls or oil-soaked seaweed — not the huge sheens seen in the Gulf. So far, oil is a long way from the state. It has yet to seep into the Loop Current along Florida’s coast, which could whisk oil into the Gulf Stream current that runs along the east coast. “The most important thing is to make sure we’re ready and have plans in place,” McIntyre said. “Right now, we’re in a good position because it is a less than 1 percent chance oil will affect North Carolina.” The meeting comes a few weeks after Republican challenger Ilario Pantano called out McIntyre, saying the seven-term Democrat should press the Obama administration for more resources to clean up the spill. McIntyre and Pantano are running for North Carolina’s 7th congressional district.
Tax delinquents up; unpaid taxes total more than $800M CHARLOTTE (AP) — North Carolina’s unpaid taxes total more than the $800 million shortfall that legislators had to balance in the state’s new $19 billion budget. The delinquencies totaling $841 million are 67 percent higher than a year ago, The Charlotte Observer reported Monday. The General Assembly slashed spending and jobs across state government in the state budget that took effect this month. More cuts could come in a few months if Congress doesn’t deliver $519 million in federal Medicaid money. “It’s definitely money that we could use,” said Rep. Paul
Luebke, D-Durham Democrat, who chairs the tax-writing House Finance Committee. More than a half-million individual and corporate taxpayers owe money. They include at least 28 individuals and six companies, each owing more than $100,000. The increase in unpaid taxes is due less to the bad economy than to better ways the state Revenue Department has of identifying delinquents, spokeswoman Beth Stevenson said. But due in part to budget cuts, the department has 17 vacancies in its collections division. That represents 7 percent of the collections staff.
RALEIGH (AP) — A bipartisan committee in the North Carolina House will review the chamber’s policy on prayers after a minister complained he was asked not to mention Jesus at the start of a daily floor session. House Speaker Joe Hackney announced on Monday a six-member panel will review guidelines and make findings. There are three Democrats and three Republicans. The Rev. Ron Baity of Berean Baptist Church in Forsyth County said last week his time as a guest chaplain several weeks ago was cut short after he mentioned Jesus in a prayer. The House has requested, but not required, the daily invocation be nonsectarian. Hackney and House Minority Leader Paul Stam have said they want the prayer rules to be constitutional. This year’s legislative session adjourned over the weekend.
Brother of bombing victim in plane crash in NC CHAPEL HILL (AP) — The brother of a man who was killed in terrorist bombings in Uganda was aboard an airplane that crashed at a North Carolina airport. A family member who asked not to be identified said Kyle Henn was aboard the airplane that crashed around 3 p.m. Monday as it attempted a landing at Horace Williams Airport in Chapel Hill. One person died and two others were injured. A UNC Health Care spokesman said Henn was in fair condition while the second survivor was in critical condition. Nate Henn, a native of Wilmington, Del. whose parents live in Raleigh, was killed in Sunday’s bombings. Many of the 74 people killed were watching the finals of the World Cup. The plane was registered to Thomas F. Pitts LLC of Wilmington, Del.
The East Spencer Town Board of Aldermen agreed Monday to voice their support of a three-day community event organized by a local resident. Sherri Hill told the board that “Taking Back Our Streets: Action With a Purpose” is designed to benefit the youth of East Spencer and show their families what resources are available to them. “The vision for this community weekend is... encouraging the town of East Spencer to become involved in the improvement of community, as well as to foster that change,” Hill said. “The hope is that by providing them with knowledge, resources and options, they will be empowered to make a positive change in the community as well as in their personal lives.” Several local churches are helping with the event, tentatively scheduled for
Cowan agreed, saying he simply wants to give Hill a chance to discuss the event with the board in detail. Alderman Tammy Corpening said she would participate however she could. Mayor Pro Tempore Phronice Johnson said the town may be able to spare some finances to help provide food. The board voted unanimously to draft a resolution in support of the event. Alderman Theodore Gladden was absent from the meeting. Contact Karissa Minn at (704) 797-4222.

Campaign workers say GOP candidate hasn’t paid
FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — Two workers in former North Carolina congressional candidate Will Breazeale’s campaign say he has refused to pay them since losing the Republican primary in May. The Fayetteville Observer reported Monday that Mary Gray and Carl Kelm filed wage complaints with the state. A Labor Department spokeswoman says the agency is looking into the case. Breazeale says Gray and Kelm were unpaid volunteers now trying to boost their political careers. Gray was Breazeale’s campaign field director and Kelm was the communications manager. They say Breazeale agreed to reimburse them for their work in the 7th Congressional District race. Breazeale lost to Ilario Pantano in the Republican primary for the right to challenge Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre.

I think we just need to say, ‘When do you need us?’” Noble said.

struct an officer. He is being held in the Rowan County Detention Center with bond set at $10,000. Whitley said all of the goods were recovered. The suspects had put a television, computer and jewelry in the rollout container. Whitley commended the neighbor for calling police and allowing them to stop the break-in and recover the goods. In this case it had special meaning — Rice is a chaplain for the police department. Police are seeking information on the second person involved, Neko. Crime Stoppers will pay a reward for information leading to his arrest. Neko is described as a black make in his early 20s. He was last seen wearing a gold shirt over a white shirt and light-colored denim jeans. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.

An alert neighbor tipped off police after seeing two men breaking into a minister’s home while he was away preaching at a revival. Salisbury Police arrested one man and are looking for another who is known by the nickname Neko. Salisbury Police responded to the call at 414 S. Church St., the home of Bishop Harry Rice, around 10:45 a.m. Sunday and saw two men filling a rollout garbage container with items from the house. As police were setting up a perimeter, the men caught on. Deputy Chief Steve Whitley said the two men ran out the back door at full speed. Police caught one after a short foot chase, but the other was too fast. Cory Lamonte McConaughey, 21, 721 S.

CAP FROM 1a ed and monitored to see if it can withstand pressure from oil and gas starting Tuesday morning for six to 48 hours, according to National Incident Commander Thad Allen. The cap will be tested by closing off three separate valves that fit together snugly like pairs of fists, choking off the oil and blocking it from entering the Gulf. BP doesn’t want the flow of oil to stop instantaneously, said Don Van Nieuwenhuise, director of Professional Geosciences Programs at the University of Houston. Shutting the oil off too quickly could cause another explosion, he said. “Rather than like a train running into a brick wall, it’ll be more like putting the brakes on slowly,” he said. “That’s what they’re aiming for. You can keep the brakes on and everyone arrives alive, or you hit the wall and have big problems.” Even if the cap works, the blown-out well will still be leaking. But the newer, tighter cap will enable BP to capture all the oil, or help funnel it up to ships on the surface if necessary. One of those ships, the Helix Producer, began operating Monday and should be up to its capacity of collecting roughly 1 million gallons of oil a day within a few days, Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said. A permanent fix will have to wait until one of two relief wells being drilled reaches the broken well, which will then be plugged up with drilling mud and cement. That may not happen until mid-August. Meanwhile, the Obama administration issued a revised moratorium on deepwater offshore drilling Monday to replace the one that was struck down by the courts as heavy-handed. The original moratorium halted the approval of any new per-

been put forth. Even though a mosque is supposed to be a religious setting, ground zero may not be an appropriate spot for this or any proposed mosque, King said. “Right at this moment in history, it’s bad form to put it there,” he said. “There are things you are allowed to do, but that aren’t appropriate to do.”
mits for deep-water projects and suspended drilling on 33 exploratory wells in the Gulf. The new ban, in effect until Nov. 30, does not appear to deviate much from the original moratorium, as it still targets deep-water drilling operators while defining them in a different way. Work on the new capping operation began Saturday with the removal of a leaky cap that captured about 1 million of the 1.5 million to 2.5 million gallons of oil the government estimates is spilling from the well every day. Engineers will be watching pressure readings. High pressure is good, because it would mean the leak has been contained inside the wellhead machinery. But if readings are lower than expected, that could mean there is another leak elsewhere in the well. “Another concern right now would be how much pressure the well can take,” and whether intense pressure would further damage the well, said Eric Smith, associate director of the Tulane Energy Institute. Gulf residents closely watched the operation, knowing the damage already done to the biologically rich Gulf and the coast’s two leading industries, fishing and tourism. “I think we’re going to see oil out in the Gulf of Mexico, roaming around, taking shots at us, for the next year, maybe two,” said Billy Nungesser, president of Louisiana’s oil-stained Plaquemines Parish. “If you told me today no more oil was coming ashore, we’ve still got a massive cleanup ahead.” BP “can’t do much, but they know how to drill wells,” dock master Jimmy Beason said at a marina in Orange Beach, Ala. “I think that by the end of the month it will be stopped, and this work with the cap is part of it. I see the light at the end of the tunnel.” As of Monday, between 89 million and 176 million gallons of oil had poured into the Gulf, according to government estimates.

Jim Riches, who also lost a firefighter son on Sept. 11, agreed. “I think it should be strictly family members,” he said. “It means a lot to get up there in front of the whole world and tell your son how much you miss him.” But Anthony Gardner, whose brother died at the trade center, said it’s appropriate for family members to be joined by those who are building the Sept. 11 memorial and museum that will take up half of the 16-acre trade center site. “It validates the importance of the collaboration,” he said. The redevelopment of the lower Manhattan site has been plagued by delays and fraught with politics. Construction is under way on two of five planned ground zero office buildings, the memorial and a transit hub, but other planned skyscrapers have been stalled by financing disputes. Some victims’ family members are critical of the redevelopment process. Regenhard said she believes “9/11 is for the dead.” “It’s not for business and cash registers and development,” she said. The Sept. 11 ceremony will take place at a park just southeast of the trade center site.

REP. PETER KING on building mosque at ground zero
Rebuilding officials to read 9/11 victims’ names NEW YORK (AP) — Relatives of those killed at the World Trade Center will share the podium with people involved in rebuilding the trade center site at this year’s ceremony marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The annual commemoration is centered around the one-by-one reading of the names of the dead. At first only relatives read the names, but categories of people such as volunteers and emergency service workers were invited to participate in recent years. A letter from Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Gov. David Paterson that went out to victims’ families Monday said that “to recognize all those who are working so hard to rebuild the site, for this year’s reading of the names, family members will be paired with representatives involved in its redevelopment including architects and engineers, construction workers and administrators.” The news did not sit well with some family members. “The relatives are the ones who should be there to memorialize their lost loved ones. Period,” said Sally Regenhard, whose firefighter son was killed at the trade center on Sept. 11, 2001. Retired fire Deputy Chief

Cordoba’s director, Imam Faisel Abdul Rauf, has refused to disclose the sources of funding for the mosque and once suggested in a television interview that U.S. policies contributed to the 9/11 attacks.

NEW YORK (AP) — The ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee said Monday he favors an investigation into the funding of a proposed mosque near ground zero. In an interview with The Associated Press, Rep. Peter King raised concerns about the sources of funding for the proposed $100 million mosque, just blocks away from the site of the Sept. 11 attacks, where nearly 3,000 Americans died at the hands of Islamic terrorists. “It’s a house of worship, but we are at war with al-Qaida,” King told the AP. “I think the 9/11 families have a right to know where the funding comes from; I think there are

CITY FOCUSES ON HOT SPOTS
High season for crime? he Salisbury Police Department’s renewed emphasis on targeting crime hot spots comes just as the city needs it most. The troubling spate of murders (six already) and shootings we’ve seen this year could shake Salisbury-Rowan residents’ sense of security. Deputy Police Chief Steve Whitley told a Post reporter last week that hot spot teams have been part of ongoing efforts to deal with violence, vandalism and other crimes. During this long, hot summer, those teams are saturating what police consider problem areas. Knowing that one of those teams was just seconds away from the downtown shootings that lead to two recent deaths is of limited comfort. It’s good to know police could respond quickly, but the officers’ proximity shows just how difficult preventing bloodshed can be. Only if they had been in the exact spot of the shooting at the exact time it happened might they have stopped the shooter from pulling the trigger. Anger fueled in local bars is not quelled by a mere police presence in the neighborhood. What is it about the summer of 2010? City Manager David Treme says residents seem more on edge and under stress than usual, perhaps because of ongoing job and money problems. Salisbury-Rowan saw a jump in murders and violent crimes in the early 1990s, but at least part of the cause was easily discernible — the revolving door in the state’s prison system. People were committing serious crimes and serving only minimal time in prison. The state went on a building campaign then, expanding the prison system and, with a new sentencing law, making court sentences mean something again. Prisons and jails are crowded, but the prison door no longer revolves. A loose probation system, chronic frustration over economic woes and plain old bad tempers appear to be at work now. The Police Department’s hot spot teams may find the summer of 2010 longer and hotter than usual.
Fiber optic future For Salisbury, the best news coming out of this year’s session of the General Assembly was something that did not happen. A bill that would have killed cities’ ability to launch their own fiber optic systems did something of a swan dive itself. The city of Salisbury has invested millions in its Fibrant system, and this bill was a real threat to seeing the project to fruition. Now the matter is supposed to be under study in Raleigh. Fibrant should be up and running long before the cable companies get another chance to obstruct government broadband service.

“It is the spirit and not the form of law that keeps justice alive.” — Earl Warren
y breed, the Tims, are disappearing. The name Timothy has been sliding for decades; in 2009 it fell to 110th in popularity among male names. This is how you get old — one day your name is part of the mainstream, the next you have an unfashionable, geezer-certified moniker. We Tims can now join the old-timey ranks of the Walters, Harolds and Alberts. Timothy was once hot — it ranked as high as number 11 in three different years, including 1966 (the year of my birth). Timothy remained in the top 20 until 1970, and the top 30 until 1990. Then the bottom fell out: Timothy plummeted from number 39 in 1994 to 84 in 2005 to its current 110 spot. My wife has it even worse — she was saddled with the name Heather before it was properly in vogue. Heather charted as high as number three in 1975, but now languishes at a dismal 558. So what’s big these days? The Social Security Administration, which provides these figures, lists Jacob as the most popular boy’s name for the last 12 years. On the girls’ side, Emily also had a 12-year run, but in 2008 it was displaced by Emma, which in turn lost out to Isabella in 2009. I’m tempted to mock the front-running Jacobs, but this is probably the name many readers of this good paper have bestowed upon their male child, so I’ll refrain. Jacob has enjoyed a spectacular rise: It was ranked a lowly 351 in my mid-1960s heyday, entered the top 20 in 1990 and now sits atop the pile. But Jacobs, don’t get smug — you’ll fall one day, and it won’t be pretty. It will sting mightily. There are a handful of consistent winners among boys’ names — Michael and Joseph never seem to go out of style — but in general names are subject to fashion. The fad aspect is even more pronounced for girls’ names. The top five names for girls from 2000 to 2009 were Emily, Madison, Emma, Olivia and Hannah. Emily was relatively popular in the 1970s (number 66), but Madison didn’t even crack the top 1000 mark until 1984. Ever meet anyone over the age of 15 named Madison? Emma was no worldbeater 30 years ago either, ranking number 446 for the 1970s, while Hannah and Olivia checked in at numbers 452 and 316, respectively. In the 1970s, Jennifer, Amy, Melissa, Michelle, and Kimberly reigned; all are now “mom” names consigned to the dust bin of history. I don’t need to be number 11 again; I’ve had my day, but perhaps Tim could consistently hover in the 30-60 range. The name wouldn’t be too common, but there would be enough new blood to keep it current. But number 110 and falling, that’s depressing. Of course, it’s possible that Tim has already hit bottom — it’s notoriously difficult to time the market — and will have climbed back into the 90s by this time next year. On the other hand, Timothy could easily go as low as the three or four hundreds before rebounding. I am hoping for a 2040 Tim revival (when I really will be old and not just have an old person’s name). Perhaps Tim will become a trendy retro name, and a powerful Timothy vogue will have hit such that the preschools will need to designate Big Tims, Little Tims, Curly Tims and Baseball Tims, just to keep things straight. In the interim, I suppose I could change my name to Jacob or Ethan, but then again maybe not; in order to fit in I’d need to recruit a bunch of 8-year-olds as friends, and that could be a little weird. • • • Reach Tim Lehnert at www.timlehnertonline.com.

Truth about Afghanistan Michael Steele right about Obama’s policies hether or not Republican National Chairman Michael Steele survives his own mouth because of past gaffes, his assessment of the nature of the war in Afghanistan and the probable inability of winning it are absolutely accurate and most top politicians and military men, active and retired, know it. First of all, the chairman’s reference to this being President Obama’s war is spot on. DAN is the comTHOMASSON He mander in chief and the surge that escalated the conflict was his idea. He is in charge. Secondly, there was really never any hope of “winning” anything but a little time to train Afghan forces to control their own destiny. Defeating the Taliban outright at this stage is probably not a possibility and if the president believes otherwise he is in scary denial. How do you defeat a culture based on an unyielding religious ideology? All the enemy has to do is lay low until U.S. forces are gone. Already Afghan President Hamid Karzai is considering a way to compromise with the Taliban, even turning over control of some rural territory to them if necessary. That could end badly for his government given the fact that trusting them not to demand more and more is not only foolish policy but also a recipe for one’s own demise. There is hope that Karzai could enlist aid from Pakistan after U.S.
troops begin to leave next year and he reportedly is seeking to improve relations with that government. We are clearly straining our reason for being there in the first place. While the Taliban did harbor the al Qaeda terrorist machine, Osama bin Laden and his lieutenants were able to escape U.S. forces, when President George W. Bush decided that Saddam Hussein was an even bigger threat to U.S. security. Forces that had the Taliban on
Defeating the Taliban outright at this stage is probably not a possibility. the run in total disarray were siphoned off for the Iraqi invasion, in a colossal blunder. The Bush White House can’t escape that responsibility. But nearly two years into his administration, Obama continues to pursue policies that are just as invalid. Instead of bogus weapons of mass destruction as the reason for this military excursion, however, the president continues to view this backward, mountainous nightmare of a country a threat to America’s national security. It may have been briefly, but we just plain blew the chance to deal with that. It seems a stretch now to consider Afghanistan as vital to our national safety at this time, especially when terrorism cells have spread all over the globe. Republicans have a chance here to back their chairman in his assessment of the situation and demand that Obama live
LETTERS Free representation only for criminals? We teach our children that good overcomes evil, and if you do what is right, you will win in the long run, and that money is not the most important thing in life. Are we wrong? I’m a 40-year-old father of three great kids. They have lived with me for the past nine months full time. Now I am pursuing legal custody and because I do not have the right amount of money, I may lose my children. Lawyers have advised me that I will need to pay between $2,500 and $4,000 to have papers drawn up and filed. I have asked for assistance from legal aid, the magistrate’s office, the Sheriff’s Office and Social Services. None of them will get involved unless there is actual domestic violence. How can society allow money to play such a role in a child’s well=being? Why do criminals deserve an attorney when they cannot afford one, but a father of three fighting for custody of his children does not? I am not looking for a handout, but I deserve to have at least the same legal opportunities as a criminal. Anyone with helpful information, please let me know.
up to his campaign promise to get us the hell out of these wars. Steele is far from alone in his views even though his party’s bigwigs can’t seem to admit that outside their own bedrooms where they whisper it to their spouses at night. Come on boys and girls, fess up and take a chance. You won’t be risking an indictment as anti-American and of failing to support our troops, most of whom clearly want this over. The other day while attending a free-wheeling discussion of the pros and cons of Afghanistan with a number of distinguished conservatives and a couple of liberals, it was startling to see in a show of hands that only one person, a prominent Democrat, was in favor of continuing the war. His argument was the one cited earlier about national security. It had been a vigorous but polite discussion so no one threw their dessert. Steele clearly has difficulty with political correctness and that sometimes is a bad thing. This time, however, was not one of those. The change of command in Afghanistan may or may not yield the results desired — to stabilize the government long enough for its forces to prevail. The betting is against them. But the Republican chairman may be one of the few political figures in the GOP and most of the Democratic Party with the courage to speak up. It is time to leave, and everyone knows it. After all it will take quite a while, even if one starts now. Sometime next year is pretty vague. • • • Dan K. Thomasson is former editor of the Scripps Howard News Service.

I was watching the Channel 36 News Saturday evening when Anjanette Flowers reported the N.C. Legislature informed a pastor (after he used “Jesus” in his prayer) that his services for the remainder of the week would not be needed. What? The pastor asked for an apology, and the House speaker and the minority leader are reviewing this. This never should have happened. What is happening to America when we, as Christians, in a Christian nation, look the other way and allow these people to do this? In the last few days, news reports have shown how people are upset with Lebron James’ move to the Miami Heat or Lindsey Lohan’s 90day jail sentence. Too much emphasis is put on Hollywood celebrities and athletes and not enough on God. This country was founded on Christian principles and we Christian believers need to start voting these people out of office in November. Those who would take any reference to God and/or his son Jesus Christ from a pastor’s voluntary prayer, do not deserve to serve in office. — Sybil Hester
We cannot adequately express our thanks and gratitude for all the love and support we have been blessed to receive since the night of our business fire. Many people came to battle the blaze, direct traffic, move equipment, hold our hands and cry, or simply stand beside us as we watched the devastation unfold before us. We wish to publicly thank all the fire and emergency personnel who came to assist us that night. Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated. We also wish to apologize to the Cleveland community, which experienced a power outage because of the fire. It was a terrible night for us as a family. However, we are blessed daily to know that so many people in the Rowan community truly care about our well being. We thank you for your love and continued support as we begin the rebuilding progress. — The Myers Family Cleveland

Gingrich seriously considers White House run, will decide early next year
LOS ANGELES (AP) â€” A Canadian man has been sentenced to nine years in prison for using a lottery scam to cheat dozens of elderly Americans out of $600,000. Henry Anekwu, of Vancouver, British Columbia, also was ordered Monday to pay about $500,000 in restitution. Federal prosecutors in Los Angeles say that from 1998 through 2003, the 43year-old employed telemarketers who told victims they had won a lottery but had to pay taxes before they could collect. Anekwu called the 79 victims over and over again, demanding more money and encouraging them to borrow to pay the fees. He was arrested in Canada and extradited to the U.S. in 2009. U.S. District Judge John F. Walter says it was â€œpainfulâ€? to listen to the testimony of victims but Anekwu showed no remorse.

LOS ANGELES (AP) â€” Mel Gibson was heard allegedly acknowledging he hit the mother of his 8-month-old daughter in a recording released Monday by a celebrity news website. The eight-minute recording posted by RadarOnline.com was purportedly a phone argument between Gibson and then-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. A voice sounding distinctively like the Academy Award-winner was heard telling Grigorieva that she â€œdeservedâ€? to be hit after she chastised him for allegedly punching her in the face and breaking two of her teeth. â€œWhat kind of a man is that?â€? she was heard saying. â€œHitting a woman when sheâ€™s holding a child in her hands? Breaking her teeth twice in the face! What kind of man is that?â€? â€œOh, youâ€™re all angry now!â€? Gibson allegedly responds. â€œYou know what, you ... (expletive) deserved it!â€?
â€” or hire freely until they do. The gap helps explain why the economic rebound isnâ€™t stronger and could even stall. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke stepped up pressure Monday on banks to break the logjam and lend more to smaller firms, which employ at least half of American workers. Small business owners are relying on personal credit cards or raiding retirement accounts to stay afloat, the Fed chairman said. Bernanke and other regulators have urged banks for months to lend more to smaller companies. Lawmakers have complained that small businesses that want loans are having trouble getting them. Banks have countered by saying demand remains weak. The Fed does have authority to create programs to increase lending, such as providing low-cost loans to banks. But economic conditions would probably have to weaken considerably before the Fed would propose such a move. One such program set up during the 2008 financial crisis was recently closed.

Canadian gets 9 years for lotto scam on U.S. elderly
NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) â€” A resourceful teenage fugitive who police have called the â€œBarefoot Banditâ€? was being questioned inside a Bahamian jail Monday as he spent his first full day behind bars after an audacious twoyear run that gave him near folk hero status. Colton Harris-Moore was being held inside the two-story Central Detective Unit with access to phone calls and visitors from the U.S. Embassy as well as interrogators. Police Commissioner Ellison Greenslade said he was being interviewed by investigators but declined to say whether the 19-year-old had made any kind of statement to authorities or what they needed to build any case against him. Greenslade was complimentary of Harris-Moore despite the weeklong manhunt that ended with police shooting out the outboard engine on a motorboat off Eleuthera island. â€œHeâ€™s very eloquent, obviously a very intelligent young man,â€? Greenslade said. Harris-Moore was expected to make his first court appearance Tuesday on suspicion of illegal weapons possession as well as a â€œlitanyâ€? of other charges stemming from the week he spent in the Bahamas trying to evade police.
JERUSALEM (AP) â€” Archaeologists say a newly discovered clay fragment from the 14th century B.C. is the oldest example of writing ever found in antiquity-rich Jerusalem. Dig director Eilat Mazar of Hebrew University says the 2-centimeter (0.8-inch) long fragment bears an ancient form of writing known as Akkadian wedge script. The fragment includes a partial text including the words â€œyou,â€? â€œthem,â€? and â€œlater.â€? It predates the next-oldest example of writing found in Jerusalem by 600 years, and dates roughly four centuries before the Bible says King David ruled a Jewish kingdom from the city. Mazar said Monday that the fragment likely came from a royal court and suggested more could be found in the most ancient part of Jerusalem, located in the cityâ€™s predominantly Palestinian eastern sector.

GSTAAD, Switzerland (AP) â€” In a stunning ruling, Roman Polanski was declared a free man on Monday â€” no longer confined to house arrest in his Alpine villa after Swiss authorities rejected a U.S. request for his extradition because of a 32-year-old sex conviction. The decision left the Oscarwinning director free to return to France and the life of a celebrity, albeit one unable to visit the United States. Hours after the ruling was announced, Polanskiâ€™s assistant said he had left his multi-million dollar chalet with his family. Half-empty glasses seen on a back porch testified to a hasty exit. â€œMr. Polanski can now move freely,â€? Swiss Justice Minister Eveline WidmerSchlumpf declared. â€œHeâ€™s a free man.â€? Switzerland, which arrested the 76-year-old Polanski last September as he arrived receive a lifetime achievement award at a Zurich film festival, blamed U.S. authorities for its decision, citing a possible â€œfault in the U.S. extradition request.â€?

militant veterans of the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, resets the security equation in East Africa and has broader implications worldwide. The group in the past has recruited Somali-Americans to carry out suicide bombings in Mogadishu. Al-Shabab, an ultraconservative Islamic group that has drawn comparisons to the Taliban, has long threatened to attack outside of Somaliaâ€™s borders, but the bombings late Sunday are the first time the group has done so. â€œWe warned Uganda not to deploy troops to Somalia; they ignored us,â€? said Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage, al-Shababâ€™s spokesman. â€œWe warned them to stop massacring our people, and they ignored that. The explosions in Kampala were only a minor message to them. ... We will target them everywhere if Uganda does not withdraw from our land.â€? Rage said a second country with peacekeeping forces in Mogadishu â€” Burundi â€” could soon face attacks. Fighting in Mogadishu between militants and Somali troops or African Union peacekeepers frequently kills civilians.
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) â€” Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday heâ€™s seriously considering seeking the Republican presidential nomination and will announce his decision early next year. Gingrich, 67, told The Associated Press that he would focus on helping Republican candidates through the midterm GINGRICH elections in November, then decide in February or March whether to seek the GOP nomination. â€œIâ€™ve never been this serious,â€? Gingrich said. â€œItâ€™s fair to say that by February the groundwork will have been laid to consider seriously whether or not to run,â€? he said. Gingrich, in Des Moines for a fundraiser and workshop for local Republican candidates, predicted President Barack Obama would be a one-term president. Obamaâ€™s poll numbers have dropped below 50 percent, and Gingrich predicted they would continue to fall, making him vulnerable in 2012.

AP: Mate piloting tug in duck boat crash takes 5th PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A crew member refusing to talk to federal investigators about a fatal duck boat crash in Philadelphia was piloting the tugboat pushing a barge that slammed into the duck boat, a Coast Guard official said Monday. The mate exercised his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and refused to meet with investigators over the weekend, according to the National Transportation and Safety Board. U.S. Coast Guard Capt. Todd Gatlin confirmed to The Associated Press that the mate was on duty as the tug pushed a 250-foot barge up the Delaware River. The crew of the duck boat told the NTSB that its radio calls to the tug “received no response,” although other boat operators nearby reported hearing them. The collision last week sank the tourist vessel, dumping 37 people overboard and killing two young Hungarians. The tug, The Caribbean Sea, had been moved to Philadelphia on June 24, Gatlin said. It previously had been in New York Harbor, according to Joseph Dady, a national tug safety advocate who once piloted the vessel. The tug’s crew consisted of a captain, the mate, an engi-
neer and two deckhands, the NTSB said. “The mate was on duty ... and the captain was off,” Gatlin told the AP. By law, either the captain or mate must be at the wheel at all times, said Dady, president of the National Mariners Association and a member of the Coast Guard’s Towing Safety Advisory Commission. An 18-year-old trainee had been at the wheel of the duck boat when it entered the water, but the captain took over when the engine appeared to smoke, a passenger said Monday. The pair cut the engine, dropped anchor and were waiting calmly for help for several minutes when they saw the hulking barge bear down on them. “Our younger fellow was out there flailing and calling, and obviously nobody saw him. I came to find out that nobody was on deck on the barge,” passenger Sandy Cohen said Monday from her home in Durham, N.C. “And then they couldn’t reach them by radio.” The tug’s owner, K-Sea Transportation Partners of East Brunswick, N.J., declined to identify the mate or describe the crew’s experience level. Nor would the company say if there was a lookout on the barge, which Dady said is
required if the pilot’s view from the wheelhouse is significantly obstructed. K-Sea has provided legal counsel to the five-person crew, but a spokesman could not immediately name the mate’s lawyer. The company said it was cooperating fully with the probe. “If an individual chooses to take the Fifth Amendment, that’s fully their right,” spokesman Darrell Wilson said. The captain submitted to an NTSB interview, but NTSB spokesman Keith Holloway would not disclose what he said. Typically, tug captains and mates rotate six-hour shifts, with one person on duty and the other on break, Dady said. The deckhands also rotate shifts, and the NTSB said one was asleep at the time. “It’s 90 percent boredom and 10 percent sheer terror,” Dady said of a tug captain’s job. The amphibious duck boats are a popular way for tourists to see the sights of Philadelphia from both land and water. Two Hungarians visiting the city as part of a language program, 20-yearold Szabolcs Prem and 16year-old Dora Schwendtner, were missing for two days before their bodies were found.
Ten passengers suffered minor injuries. The tug was pushing a city-owned barge that carries sludge a few miles downriver to a wastewater treatment plant. The barge — empty and riding high on the sea — was making the return trip upriver when it struck the tourist boat about 150 feet from the shoreline, where commercial, tourist and pleasure craft share space in the Delaware River’s deep shipping channel. According to Dady, Coast Guard rules mandate that a pilot make 11 trips on a given waterway before taking the helm. Although the Caribbean Sea had been moved to the Delaware River just weeks earlier, K-Sea may have hired a local crew, Gatlin said. Dady, who operated The Caribbean Sea decades ago when it bore a different name, said the vessel has good maneuverability. He believes the pilot could have changed course in about a minute and come to a full stop in about three minutes, if he knew of the looming peril. “If there was a proper lookout posted — I’m not saying there was or there wasn’t — I would find it hard to believe that he wouldn’t have seen that duck boat in time to

The sightseeing boat stalled in the Delaware River and was knocked over by an oncoming barge Wednesday, spilling 37 people overboard and leaving two passengers unaccounted for after a frantic rescue effort. alert the captain or mate and divert course and prevent the collision,” he said. However, if the boat were drifting, a pilot might have thought it was moving out of
the barge’s path. “If that vessel was adrift, it might have given the guy the illusion that he was under way and he was going to cross the bow safely,” he said.

Lighthouse climb, surf event among fun at coast
Fishing in heat of day not the most comfortable way
Cape Lookout Lighthouse on the 56-mile uninhabited Cape Lookout National Seashore in the Crystal Coast — North Carolina’s Southern Outer Banks — has completed safety and historic preservation adjustments, and is open for public climbing starting Thursday. In December, the lighthouse was given word that U.S. Department of Interior planned to spend $487,000 on repairs in order for visitors to climb the cast-iron stairs to the top. The traditional diagonal checkered patterned lighthouse, originally built in 1812, served as a model for current North Carolina lighthouses including Cape Hatteras, Bodie Island and Currituck Beach. John Royal, lighthouse keeper, lit the distinctive black and white diagonal checkered pattern in 1859. The 188 spiral steps to the gallery is roughly equal to climbing a 12-story building. Lighthouse climbs take place Thursday, Friday and Saturday during the open season, beginning every 15 minutes from 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Tickets are available Tuesday through Saturday at the Light Station Visitor’s Center near the ferry dock, and by phone. The phone number for advanced reservations is 252728-0708.
Surf’s up Surfers will compete for a $20,000 purse at the 6th Annual East Coast Reef/Sweetwater Pro-Am at Wrightsville Beach this weekend. This three-day dip is one of the smoothest events on the entire East Coast, attracting national champions to North Carolina’s clean beaches. Surfing at Wrightsville Beach is documented as early as 1906 on a postcard photo showing a sole surfer on a Hawaiian-style surf board among a sea of ocean bathers. The Reef Sweetwater Pro-Am is staged on the beach in the heart of Wrightsville’s downtown district. Other events on the beach and sponsor giveaways keep the family busy between surfing sets. Former event champions will include pro surfers Rob Machado, Aaron Cormican, Asher Nolan and Jeremy Johnston. Returning to this year’s event lineup is former ASP World Championship tour standout and Wilmington Sports Hall of Fame inductee, Ben Bourgeois. Other pros competing in this year’s event include Mike Losness, Paul Fisher, Jay Thompson, Nick Rozsa, Dylan Goodale, Heath “Nutty” Walker and Tonino Benson. In all, 96 professional surfers from around the world will descend on Wrightsville Beach to surf starting Friday. Amateur divisions include a crowd favorite: Guppy division features young, beginning surfers and the Tow-At Expression Session.

Migratory game bird seasons set The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has approved the season dates for dove and other webless migratory game birds, as well as September seasons for Canada geese and teal. Each year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides frameworks from which to choose the seasons and the Commission selects the actual dates within these guidelines. The Commission allowed public input on the seasons throughout June. The 2010–11 seasons for webless migratory game birds and waterfowl early seasons are: Mourning and white-winged dove: Sept. 4 – Oct 9; Nov. 22 – Nov. 27; and Dec. 18 – Jan. 14; daily bag of 15 and possession limit of 30. King and clapper rails: Sept. 4 – Nov. 12; daily bag of 15 and possession limit of 30
Sora and Virginia rails: Sept. 4 – Nov. 12; daily bag of 25 and possession limit of 25 Gallinule and moorhens: Sept. 4 – Nov. 12; daily bag of 15 and possession limit of 30 Woodcock: Dec 31 – Jan. 29; daily bag of three and possession limit of six Common snipe: Nov. 12 – Feb. 26; daily bag of eight and possession limit of 16 Canada goose: Sept. 1 – 30 (statewide); daily bag of 15 and possession limit of 30 September teal season: Sept. 11 – 29 (East of U.S. 17 only); daily bag of four and possession limit of eight. Species include green-winged, blue-winged and cinnamon teal. With several exceptions, shooting hours are from a half hour before sunrise until sunset. For doves, shooting hours are from noon until sunset on Sept. 4 only and from a half hour before sunrise until sunset thereafter. For more www.ncwildlife.org
Fishing with Capt. Gus
Osprey populations up Have you ever wondered which birds build the giant nests on channel markers, power poles and other high structures around Lake Norman? Some think they are bald eagle nests, but actually they are the spring and summer home of the osprey, a rather large bird whose primary diet is fish. The nesting activity of the osprey, known by some as a fish hawk, begins in early March on Lake Norman. Within a month, two to four eggs are laid. The incubation period is approximately five weeks. Since the nest, made primarily of sticks and branches, is very deep, the chicks do not show themselves until they are ready to leave it sometime in July. The osprey locates its prey from high above, then dives to snatch it from the surface of the water with its talons. If the prey is deep, it will actually dive into the water to snare it. The bird makes the captured fish aerodynamic for flying by positioning it so that the head faces forward. Osprey populations have increased in recent years to the point that the Lake Norman Wildlife Federation has placed a dozen or more nesting platforms around the lake. They are located near islands and away from boat traffic patterns. It is interesting to note that it doesn’t take the birds long to locate the platforms. One was recently positioned ad-
jacent to the island near marker T3 in Davidson Creek. Within hours, an osprey was perched atop the new structure. As the nesting season winds down, be on the lookout for adult birds that flap their wings vigorously and chirp loudly. This is the indication that they are teaching the young to fly. The young birds will eventually begin to move their wings and leap from the nest. Some hit the water first, shake off the droplets and fly away. Once the parents’ work is done, they leave the lake for a long deserved vacation. Like people, many spend the winter in Florida and in Central or South photo courtesy of capt. gus America. young osprey in a nest get ready to fly When you see an osprey circling overhead, it has more than likely spotted a for the first time. fish swimming near the surface.

Summertime heat has made fishing on area lakes a hot, sweaty and often uncomfortable during the past few weeks. With temperatures hitting 95 and higher, surface water temperatures can reach 88 to 91 degrees, making fishing during the day rough for most fishermen. On High Rock Lake, early morning and late evening has been the most productive time for largemouth bass. Spinner baits and buzz-baits early in the morning have produced some great bass averaging 3 pounds. Large schools of fry shad can be seen on the surface in most portions of the lake, with schools of white perch, white bass, small stripers and largemouth bass feeding actively. Some bass fishermen have learned to beat the heat and fish at night. Several successful fishermen have been seen using buzzbaits and white spinner baits near lighted areas such as Tamarac Marina and other places where lights shine onto the water. Some catch fish weighing up to 5 pounds, with most catches coming in the 2-3 pound range. July is a great time to use deep diving crank baits. Colors range from the common shad color to electric blue/with chartreuse sides. Concentrate on rocks, stumps and dropoffs that range from 18- 25 feet. As the day heats up, bass will move to the coolest, most oxygen rich area they can find with structure.
Stripers, crappie Fishermen are still catching striped bass despite the conditions on High Rock and Tuckertown lakes. Although many fishermen practice catch and release, stripers have a high mortality rate when caught in hot weather. If the fish is within the legal size and creel limits, it’s best to take what you caught home and enjoy a fish dinner instead of releasing the fish to die. Stay within the law and practice good ethics when fishing. Crappie continue to bite across High Rock Lake, but the best catches are being made on deep water structure. Fish over a pound have been seen weekly, even during the hottest days. Most fishermen seem to do best early in the morning until about 10:30, or at night. Minnows are hard to beat for bait, although small jigs work when fished on the structure. Catfish continue to bite, with channel cats being the most easily caught on High Rock Lake. Cut shad, chicken liver, stink bait and worms will usually put Mr. Whiskers in the bucket. Flathead catfish up to 30 pounds continue to be caught using live bluegill, goldfish and shad. White perch are biting in the tailrace of High Rock Dam. Use cut bait, worms or small jigs with a light spinning rod to have a fun evening of reeling them in. Buckets and coolers full of perch are seen regularly, with the best bite usually in the evenings as long as water is being discharged from the power plant. Small stripers, largemouth bass and catfish are also actively feeding in the same area.
Education classes A free boating safety class will be held Aug. 1 at 1 p.m. at the Rowan Rescue Squad on Julian Road. The class includes six hours of instruction and a certification test at the end. Class is open to the public, although early signup is encouraged due to limited available space. Sign up online at www.ncwildlife.org or by calling Master Officer J.B. Harrill at 704-680-2131.
Law enforcement N.C. Wildlife officers have been patrolling High Rock Lake and conducting safety inspections on vessels, checking life jackets, fire extinguishers and navigation lights among other equipment. During these inspections officers have arrested 25 boating while impaired suspects on High Rock Lake alone. Several suspects had a alcohol content of more than .20 after a chemical analysis of their breath was performed. Many of these same suspects were traveling toward the boat ramp to leave the lake and drive home. People who choose to drink alcohol to the point that they become impaired, then drive a motorboat or a motor vehicle are placing themselves, their family, friends and the general public in danger. Wildlife officers have joined Rowan and Davidson County Sheriff’s departments in working to remove suspects that operate motorboats while impaired. The local court systems are strictly enforcing the law and suspects that are found guilty face a class two misdemeanor, with fines and other punishment the court may believe is necessary. Boaters are reminded to have a designated driver familiar with how to operate the boat if alcoholic beverages are going to be part of your day on the lake. An impaired person may try to remove the designated driver if he or she is not familiar with the boat or lake. Suspects have been observed exchanging seats with the designated driver in the last 200 yards to the boat ramp. Of course, if an impaired person operates the boat even for a brief time or distance, he or she may be arrested. The largest concentration of motorboats most weekends on High Rock Lake is in Crane Creek at Goat Island. For years, this has been the go-to spot for rest, relaxation and family fun. Unfortunately, this area has become a notorious place for impaired boat operation, reckless boating, illegal drugs and fights. Human waste, litter and broken bottles are scattered about the small island. Officers regularly patrol the area and things generally appear calm, but once the officers leave, small groups of troublemakers often begin to engage in illegal activity. Although statistics are not kept, hardly a weekend passes without some sort of incident at this location. Officers arrested four impaired operators on one day recently near Goat Island. If you observe illegal activity while boating, call 911 or the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission at 1800-662-7137. ■■■ E-mail Sgt. Anthony Sharum of the N.C.

Ask Amy: Mom deposits pressure on reluctant bride with him, but she says she wants to wait! She is a very beautiful girl, and I think this goes to her head. Please give me the words to say to her. — Concerned Mom Dear Mom: Here are the words to say: “Honey, if you don’t want to get married, you shouldn’t get married. Putting down a deposit on a wedding hall is the worst reason in the world to get married. “This is your life, and even if I think your fiance would make a great husband, I’m not marrying him. If you decide to cancel your wedding, we’ll figure out how you can repay me for the deposits.” Dear Amy: A friend of mine attended a theme cocktail party my husband and I hosted. He must have enjoyed it, because he asked us to bartend for a party to celebrate his parents’ 50th anniversary. We were touched and said of course! He offered to pay us, but that seemed ridiculous: It sounded like a fun thing to do for a friend (we’re not actually bartenders!), and we don’t need the money.
Then he asked if we’d also be willing to pass appetizers at the party. This seemed odd, but we agreed. Over the course of the evening, his mother issued orders for me to clear off and put away the food and all the dishes; collect dirty dishes and glasses; fill the dishwasher; cut the cake; make coffee, etc. At no point did she thank me — or even ask if I wanted anything to eat or drink. Amy, I was stunned. My friend checked in on me a few times, saying I looked “stressed.” When we left, I told him that I had not signed up to be the kitchen help. He apologized, saying that his parents had taken over the event. This seemed an extremely lame defense for an adult. Should I just chock this up to a life lesson, or should I give my friend and/or his parents a piece of my mind? — Not a Server Dear Not: It sounds as if you’ve already given your friend a piece of your mind. He apologized and then blamed someone else. He needs to send you and your husband a huge basket of
Dear Amy: Thanks for your sensitive answer to “Struggling Wife,” whose gay husband hadn’t come out to their kids. From my years of working with straight spouses, I agree that children need to know their parent has come out directly from their parents so they don’t hear it from someone else. Most are angry if their parents don’t tell them the truth. It’s best if both parents tell them together. If not, the dad should tell them. If he won’t, the mother should. This wife can learn about additional ways to handle the situation from other spouses who have “been there” through the Straight Spouse Network (www.straightspouse.org). — Amity P.

Hugh Hefner offers to take Playboy private CHICAGO (AP) — Hugh Hefner’s offer to take Playboy Enterprises Inc. private drew the promise of a competing bid Monday from the owner of archrival Penthouse magazine. That raises the possibility that Playboy’s 84-year-old founder could lose control of the men’s magazine he started more than half a century ago. Playboy said Monday that Hefner has lined up backing from a little-known private equity firm to buy the shares of the media empire that he doesn’t already own and take the company private in a deal that values the organization at $185 million. A few hours later, Marc Bell, the CEO of Penthouse owner FriendFinder, said his company will make a formal bid soon. Playboy, which Hefner launched in 1953, had its most popular years in the 1970s and has been struggling recently to stay profitable amid dwindling ad revenue and increased competition from free alternatives online. The racy magazine, which still generates the largest share of the company’s revenue, sold about 311 ad pages last year, down from 765 in 2000, according to the Publishers Information Bureau. Its average circulation has fallen by about a million over the same period to 2.02 million copies. These days, most of the company’s profits come from licensing its brand for consumer products such as men’s underwear, women’s lingerie, watches, energy drinks and slot machines. Its licensing unit reported a net income of $21 million last year, followed by $9.9 million from the company’s television properties and just $1.6 million from the magazine and its website. Based on the number of shares outstanding on April 30, Hefner’s proposal offers $122.5 million, or $5.50 for each share he doesn’t already own. That’s a nearly 40 percent premium above Friday’s closing stock price of $3.94. Playboy’s shares climbed $1.60, or 41 percent, to $5.54 in afternoon trading Monday. Hefner, the company’s chief creative officer who’s known for his silky pajamas and young, curvaceous girlfriends, plans to team up with private equity firm Rizvi Traverse Management LLC for the deal. In late 2008, Hefner’s daughter Christie resigned as chairman and CEO. Scott Flanders replaced her last summer. Since then, speculation has mounted that Playboy would seek a suitor, for a merger or acquisition. But that’s something Hefner appears to oppose. In his letter to Playboy’s board of directors, Hefner said he has no plans to sell his shares — or the company. He rebuffed any suggestion that there should be a merger between Playboy and other potential bidders. At the end of April, Playboy had 33.6 million shares of stock, of which Hefner owns more than 4 million shares in two stock classes.

Understand the miracle of compounding interest Got yourself a
TUESDAY, JULY 13, 2010 â€˘ 3B
E N T E R TA I N M E N T
Recently, I heard from Mimi K. of Mississippi. She wanted to know of a way to teach her children about the principle of compounding interest. The next day, I heard from another reader expressing her personal embarrassment that she did not know what it means for interest to MARY compound. HUNT T h o s e questions reminded me of a story I learned from a colleague, Alvin Danenberg. His story takes the financial theory of compounding interest and turns it into an easily understood principle: In 1492, Christopher Columbus decided he was going to save for retirement. He had one penny, and he knew he could earn 6 percent sim-
ple interest every year on his money. He put the penny in his left pocket and placed the interest ($0.01 x 6 percent = $0.0006) into his right pocket for safekeeping. He never added anything to his original penny in his left pocket. Yet the interest accumulated year after year in his right pocket. Chris is a very healthy guy. He lives today in 2010, 518 years later. He finally has decided to retire. He takes his one penny from his left pocket and adds it to the simple interest in his right pocket. Do you know how much Mr. Columbus has? Well, the interest in his right pocket added up to only 31 cents (518 years x $0.0006 = $0.3108). Along with his original penny from his left pocket, he has about 32 cents on which to retire. That's not very good planning. What could Chris have done differently? Let's assume Chris was more astute about investing
because he knew about compounding interest. Instead of putting the interest in his right pocket, he put it into his left pocket with the original penny. This added his earned interest to the principal. Over the years, he would earn the same 6 percent interest on the original penny plus the accumulated interest in his left pocket. At the end of year one, he could have had $0.0106 in his left pocket (the original penny plus the 6 percent interest). At the end of year two, he would have had $0.011236 ($0.0106 plus 6 percent interest). At the end of year three, he would have had $0.01191 ($0.011236 plus 6 percent interest). This is called "compounding" interest. It could have continued for Chris until today, 518 years later. How much would Christopher have accumulated for retirement? After 518 years of compounding interest at 6 per-
cent, that original penny would have earned Chris $128,362,511,906.97. That $128 billion is a lot of pocket change! None of us will live that long, but all of us will have more than one penny to invest. Though returns on most savings accounts are far less than 6 percent right now, the principle of compounding interest applies at any rate, and higher rates will return eventually.

drumming on â€œBorn Freeâ€? â€” courtesy of a sample of Suicideâ€™s â€œGhost Riderâ€? â€” is matched by a fired up M.I.A., who sounds like sheâ€™s belting into a backyard sound system: â€œYou can try to find ways to be happier/ you might end up somewhere in Ethiopia/ you can think big with your idea/ you ainâ€™t never gonna find Utopia.â€? While there are plenty of frenetic, whirring sounds on â€œMAYA,â€? her signature clanging rhythms eventually give way to the mellowed out sounds of songs like the aptly titled, â€œSpace.â€? The songâ€™s lullaby-ish melody and echoing lyrics conjure images of an orbiting M.I.A., happily unplugged from Earth and its old news. Producer Diplo, who had a hand in her Grammy-nominated track â€œPaper Planes,â€? leaves his mark on another airy and instantly lovable track, â€œTell Me Why.â€? And M.I.A. is unexpected-
Like her previous albums, M.I.A.â€™s third work, â€œMAYA,â€? is akin to a pop art installation. She takes street slang, sampled beats and plenty of attitude and craftily twists them into a multilayered, startling statement that serves biting social commentary. Even when you think you get the message, thereâ€™s something else to be considered. Since 2007â€™s â€œKala,â€? M.I.A. has become a mother and is engaged to her wealthy boyfriend. But that hasnâ€™t removed her from her role as fierce agitator needling those in power on â€œMAYAâ€? (titled after her real first name). â€œThey told me this is a free country/ But now it feels like a chicken factory/ I feel cooped up I wanna bust free/ Got nothing to lose if you get me,â€? chants M.I.A. on the winding â€œLovealot,â€? later promising â€œI wonâ€™t turn my cheek like Iâ€™m Ghandi/ I fight the ones that fight me.â€?

Help out your partner when possible
If you’ve done your homework and have acquired both knowledge and expertise, it will give you the edge you need over your competition in the year ahead. Your odds for advancement in your career look strong. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Patiently listen to everyone’s suggestions concerning a matter that is of joint concern. One among the group could have a dynamite, albeit unusual, idea that’ll be outstanding. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Because you are likely to be far more emotionally intent upon doing a good job, you’ll really throw yourself into your work. By doing so, the project will seem easier and far more fun. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — When all is said and done, endeavors that contain elements of change will work out for your benefit. Be prepared to go along with some of the new and different ideas of others. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Take emotion out of the equation and make sure assessments of an important matter are pragmatic and doable. This doesn’t mean you should discount any intuitive hunches, as long as they are sound. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You can once again depend on an old friend who has stepped up to the plate and gone to bat for you in the past. This person’s support might turn out to be the clincher. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — There isn’t a better time than now for taking care of a matter that is quite significant to you financially. Try to keep your thinking open in order to be able to do so when opportunity knocks. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — When leadership is required, be ready to step into the breach. You will be far better equipped to direct the delicate matter than will your associates. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Do your part to smooth out the path when someone who aided you in the past needs your help, even if it causes you inconvenience. Fair play is fair turnaround. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Some kind of social commitment you’ve been dreading will actually turn out to be a barrel of fun, so stop trying to figure out ways to get out of it. You’ll be glad you participated. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Although you might prefer to work with a partner, you don’t need one and actually will do better without one. Once you start working on your project alone, you’ll realize this to be true. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Don’t feel like your first ideas are carved in stone; they aren’t. You’ll discover that the longer you deliberate, the better and more creative your thinking is likely to become. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Someone you’re working with might implement some changes without your knowledge, which you might initially resent. Upon application, however, you’ll be glad s/he did.

Registered nurse appreciates hospitalist help
BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate
Defense requires cooperation. If one defender has a chance to help his partner, he should act immediately — as in this deal. Against three no-trump, West led the spade seven: 10, jack, ace. Declarer played a diamond to dummy’s queen, then ran the club nine to West’s king. What happened next? North’s transfer sequence showed exactly five hearts and some 10-15 points. It would also have been reasonable for North to rebid three clubs. Given his singleton spade, five clubs could have been — and was — the best game. We can see that the defense has five tricks available: one club and four spades. But West did not know that. Perhaps South had started with A-9-x-x of spades. West took his club king, then cashed the spade queen, under which East made the textbook play of the spade five. With three cards left, you normally play your lowest one; with two remaining, you play the higher one first. The snag with playing the spade five, though, was that West did not know who had the nine. East could have started with J-5-2 or J-9-6-5. East should have applied the Rule of Eleven. West had led the seven at trick one. Seven from 11 is four. So there were four spades higher than the seven in the North, East and South hands combined. And at the first trick East had
Tuesday, July 13
seen them all: dummy’s 10, his jack and nine, and declarer’s ace. East knew that West’s suit was high. He should have thrown a helpful nine under the queen, the card that partner wanted to know about.
Kim Cattrall gets fellowship from UK university LONDON (AP) — Kim Cattrall has swapped sleek Manhattan for gray Liverpool to accept an honorary fellowship from a university in her English home town. The “Sex and the City” star was named a fellow of Liverpool John Moores University in northwest England on Monday in recognition of her contribution to the arts. The 53-year-old actress was born in the English port city but was raised largely in Canada. She told hundreds of graduating students packed into Liverpool’s Anglican cathedral that the honor was “a dream come true.”
Dear Dr. Gott: This is in response to the reader who asked about her doctor no longer admitting patients to the hospital. As a staff registered nurse, I can tell you that we love it when a hospitalist is the admitting physician. This means that there is DR. PETER a 24-hour resource right GOTT there within the hospital — no calling and waking a doctor in the middle of the night. I feel patients get extraordinary care when there’s someone onsite to deal with any situation that comes up. I would in no way seek out a different primary-care physician, but rather celebrate that I would have a specialist available 24 hours a day, not just at rounding time! Dear Reader: From a medical standpoint, hospitalists are often considered a godsend by physicians, nurses and other hospital staff alike. However, not all patients think the same. Many who have a good relationship with their physician are uncomfortable at suddenly not being able to see him or her. When a patient is in the hospital and not feeling his or her best and/or scared, anxious or worried, someone familiar and comfortable is preferred. The issue of hospitalists is complex to say the least. They are as competent and
caring as physicians who maintain private or group practices, and they are available to assist patients in the hospital at any time. But, again, unless the patient is in and out of the hospital on a regular basis and familiar with the staff or is comfortable with the situation, many will be uncomfortable having a stranger suddenly in control of the situation. Thank you for offering your opinion on this matter. I hope patients will come around to this increasingly common occurrence because it benefits them just as much, if not more, than their own physician. Dear Dr. Gott: If something is gluten-free, does that mean it is also flourless?

People who are following my no-flour, no-sugar diet should remain vigilant about gluten-free products because they may contain sugar and other types of flour. Once the weight goal is achieved and if a person wishes to add a few foods that contain flour and/or sugar back into the diet, gluten-free products are an excellent choice.

South drops Game 3 of Area III semifinals Kernersville’s victory produces 2-1 lead in best-of-five series BY MIKE LONDON email@example.com
LANDIS — Sometimes a game turns loudly with the ping of Kernersville 10 an aluminum bat, but S. Rowan 5 sometimes it turns softly with ball four. Leading off the sixth inning for Kernersville, Landon Odell won a serious struggle with South Rowan pitcher We-
ston Smith. With his team down by one run in the pivotal third game of a best-of-five series, Odell patiently worked an 11-pitch walk that eventually turned the tide in Kernersville’s 10-5 victory. SMITH “Odell took Weston’s pitch count from 59 to 70 with one atbat,” South coach Michael Lowman said. “That’s tough on any pitcher, just wears him out. And it’s really tough on a pitcher when he loses the battle at the end of an at-bat like that.” Like Smith, South wound up on the short end of an agonizing tussle. Both halves of the seventh were disastrous
Tourney format revealed
for South, which now trails two games to one. Maverick Miles had three hits and three RBIs for South (26-7). Julio Zubillaga knocked in two runs. Blake Houston scored three HOUSTON times and caught a long drive that might have been a homer if South had an ordinary human in center field. South led 3-2 after five innings behind a pair of run-scoring singles by Miles, and Smith dueled Kernersville’s UNCGbound Pete Schultz, who struck out 18 in one prep game for East Forsyth.

Seventh inning swings momentum BY JORDAN HONEYCUTT firstname.lastname@example.org
LANDIS — The number “7” is often a popular choice among people as their lucky number. There aren’t too many folks in the Landis and China Grove areas that would agree with that after South Rowan’s 10-5 playoff loss to visiting Kernersville on Monday. Going into the seventh inning, South led 3-2 in a pitcher’s duel.
The bats for Kernersville then heated up, and it was able to plate four runs in the top of the seventh. Many of the home faithful remained confident, knowing the power that South has shown all season. The bottom half of the inning started off with Julio Zubillaga lining a sharp single to left, Maverick Miles reaching on an error and Gunnar Hogan drawing a walk to load the bases.

BY CLIFF BRUNT Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — March Madness is about to get a little bit bigger. The NCAA unveiled its plans for the newly expanded 68-team men’s basketball tournament Monday: Beginning next March, eight teams will play early the opening week in a “First Four” round, with the winners advancing to games on Thursday or Friday. Two of the early games will match the tournament’s lowest seeds, Nos. 65 through 68. The other two games will include the last four at-large qualifiers. The format appears to be a compromise. Including the lowest at-large teams will probably prevent mid-majors from being over-represented in the first round, but it could also mean that two teams from bigger conferences — those generally seeded between 11th and 13th — will be out before the tournament really gets going. “You’re not going to come up with the perfect model,” committee chair Dan Guerrero said. “You’re not going to come up with a model that is going to appease every constituency out there. But we felt that this model provided the opportunity to do something special for the tournament.” The NCAA’s new 14-year, $10.8 billion television package with CBS Sports and Turner Broadcasting not only ensures that every game will be televised but gives the NCAA sole authority to expand again. All four of the first-round games will be broadcast on Turner’s truTV cable channel. There has been only one early “play in” game since 2001, when the expansion to 65 teams essentially added a 34th at-large team. Now, there will be 31 automatic bids and 37 at-large bids. “Those teams and what would be the 34th at-large team would create better drama, if you will, for the tournament,” Guerrero said. The at-large teams will be seeded where they would normally be placed in the bracket, meaning a first-round game between two No. 10 seeds would result in the winner advancing to play a No. 7 seed. “I think some people are going to look at it and say it looks like a compromise,” said Laing Kennedy, a retired Kent State athletic director who is on the men’s basketball committee that developed the new format. “What we look at is that it really does preserve the integrity of the 31 automatic qualifiers.” The NCAA said there could be games on both Tuesday and Wednesday. The Tuesday winners would play Thursday and the Wednesday winners would play Friday. Dates and locations for the first-round games have not been determined. Dayton, Ohio, which has hosted the early game since 2001, is under consideration.

AL on top in one-sided rivalry BY JANIE MCCAULEY Associated Press
ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ryan Howard is sick of all the talk about the American League’s dominance in the AllStar game. The Phillies slugger knows all too well it’s been 13 years of AL bragging rights. And, no, that wacky 7-7 tie in 2002 did little to boost NL morale in baseball’s Midsummer Classic.
In this year of the pitcher, the National League is downright loaded, even for an All-Star game with the best of the best coming to Orange County tonight. “This should be the year for us to go HOWARD out there and hopefully end this drought,” Howard said. “I’m getting tired of hearing about
the American League winning and how long they’ve won, every year for the last 13 years or whatnot. Basically go out there and try to change it up.” There’s Colorado 15-game winner Ubaldo Jimenez starting at Angel Stadium. In the bullpen: Marlins ace Josh Johnson, Mr. perfect Roy Halladay and two-time reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum. And so on. The AL run is one of the more per-
plexing streaks in sports. Is it simply a quirk, or evidence of true dominance? The American League has ruled interleague play for several years, and also done well in the World Series, winning four of the last six titles. You’d think the NL might have caught a break at some point in a span of more than a decade, just getting one ball to bounce its way.

Pitching strong on both rosters BY JANIE MCCAULEY Associated Press
ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ubaldo Jimenez is always eager to share his accomplishments with a support system that runs from Denver to the Dominican Republic. His home nation and adopted hometown will be tuned in when Jimenez takes the mound for one of his most memorable outings yet. The Colorado ace will start for the National League in the All-Star game, while the AL will counter
with Tampa Bay’s David Price. In this year of the pitcher, Jimenez was a fitting pick Monday by Phillies manager Charlie Manuel. “One of the great talents in baseball and he’s a treat to watch pitch,” Manuel said of choosing Jimenez over Florida’s Josh Johnson. “This guy’s 15-1. His record speaks for itself.” The NL will try tonight to end a 13-year drought in baseball’s Midsummer Classic.

Injury setback for East alum Steedley From staff reports
Minnesota Twins prospect Spencer Steedley’s season may be over. Steedley (East Rowan, UNC Charlotte) was scheduled to fly to Minnesota today and his father, Derry, anticipates elbow surgery. The 25year-old lefty reliever got off to a great start this season at Double-A New Britain, but he went on the STEEDLEY shelf with a forearm injury on May 5. He returned for one appearance on July 3 before returning to the DL. Steedley was an all-conference player at Charlotte as both a pitcher and a hitter and was the first 49er to accomplish that feat. A 25th-round draft pick in 2007, he made minor league allstar teams in the Midwest

Resurgent Ortiz claims Home Run Derby title ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — David Ortiz believes his power swing is all the way back. After a big finish in the Home Run Derby, Boston’s beloved slugger has a trophy to prove it. Big Papi won his first derby title Monday night, hitting 11 homers in the final round to beat Florida’s Hanley Ramirez at Angel Stadium. Showing plenty of potency in the fierce swing that once made him one of the majors’ most feared hitters, the Red Sox star put a relentless series of drives into the elevated stands above the right-field wall. With Yankees bench coach Tony Pena crossing rivalry lines to feed fastballs straight into his wheelhouse, Ortiz hit 21 homers in the first two rounds of his fourth derby before holding off Ramirez to emerge from a field missing most of baseball’s top power hitters. “This is my fourth time, so I just kind of used the experience,” Ortiz said. “I wanted to come here and make sure the fans enjoy what we do.” Ortiz triumphantly held up the trophy featuring two crossed bats. He dedicated his performance to former major league pitcher Jose Lima, a Dominican Republic native who passed away in May after paramedics found him in cardiac arrest at his Southern California home. Ramirez, Ortiz’s fellow Dominican slugger and former
Boston teammate, matched Papi’s 21 homers in the first two rounds, pulling most of his shots over the left-field wall. But Ortiz became just the second slugger to reach double digits in the final round, while Ramirez managed only five. “It’s good for him,” Ramirez said. “He’s been through a tough time. I know he’s going to come back in the second half.” Ortiz reached the derby semifinals in 2005 and 2006, but hadn’t been back in the field since. His entire career was on the skids after he struggled in 2009 and again in April, but Boston’s longtime star is back on his game with 18 homers and 57 RBIs this season, earning his sixth All-Star berth. “I’ve been dealing with so many things the past few years,” Ortiz said. “Coming back here (to another All-Star game), I want to thank the players for giving me the opportunity to be here. This is a job that we have, but it’s called a game. That’s what I try to do during the season — have fun with my teammates and make sure everything goes the right way.” Milwaukee’s Corey Hart and Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera were eliminated in the second round, with Hart failing to connect after hitting 13 in the opening round and then waiting about 90 minutes for his second crack. Ortiz finished with 13 in the second round after getting off to a fast start.
RIVALRY FROM 1C In 2008 at Yankee Stadium, the National League had 15 innings to make it happen and came up short. The previous year in San Francisco, a crazy ball off the wall gave Ichiro Suzuki the first inside-the-park home run in All-Star game history. With a star-studded lineup of New York Yankees gathered in sunny, surf-crazed Southern California, even the Angels’ infamous rally monkey will probably be rooting for the AL if things are close late in the game. The last time the NL won was 1996, when the Milwaukee Brewers were still in the AL. Not that many remember the 6-0 NL victory at Philly’s old Veterans Stadium. “This will be Charlie’s second straight year to try to beat that stupid American League jinx,” Phillies chairman Bill Giles said of the Philadelphia and NL skipper, Charlie Manuel. “Charlie, your job’s on the line, man.” It was Giles’ father, Warren, the former National League president, who used to enter the NL clubhouse and give fired-up speeches to help rally and ready his players for the All-Star game. These days, there are graphic monkeys
Ortiz gave ample credit to Pena’s pitching after he coolly outslugged his younger competitors. “Whenever we played the Yankees, I saw (Pena) throw batting practice,” Ortiz said. “As soon as I found out he was going to be here, I said to him, ’Hey, Tony, can you pitch to me?’ And he said, ’Fine. It’s not a problem. I’m going to throw to (Nick) Swisher, but I can throw to you, too.’ It’s the Home Run Derby, and we’re here for the fans to have fun. It’s not a Yankees and Boston kind of situation, so let’s do it.” The derby field wasn’t exactly a murderers’ row, featuring five first-time competitors and no returning champions. Ryan Howard, Albert Pujols, Alex Rodriguez and defending champion Prince Fielder all sat out. So did major league homers leader Jose Bautista, NL coleaders Adam Dunn and Joey Votto, and Texas’ Josh Hamilton, who hit 28 homers in a single round at Yankee Stadium two years ago. Still, eight sluggers took aim at the artificial rock pile, moss and trees behind the centerfield wall at Angel Stadium, the long-standing Orange County park that underwent a thorough renovation in recent years. The Anaheim crowd booed Ortiz during pregame introductions, still remembering several years of postseason clashes between his Red Sox and the
Los Angeles Angels. But Ortiz hadn’t homered at Angel Stadium since hitting a shot during the 2007 AL division series. Ortiz hit eight homers in the opening round, which included plateside delivery of a towel and a refreshing drink from laughing Tampa Bay closer Rafael Soriano. Ortiz, who has been known for goofing around during the derby silliness in recent years, gave a towel break during the final round to Ramirez, who he said is “like a son to me.” Ramirez was traded to Florida when the Red Sox acquired ace Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell. “Of course, I wish Hanley would be playing on our team, like he was supposed to be, but there are things we can’t control,” Ortiz said. “The move that the Red Sox made was good for both sides.” Ortiz took control of the last round with consecutive homers on his first four swings. Ramirez couldn’t catch up, hitting three straight before ending it by making outs on six of his last seven swings. Hart highlighted the first round with six homers on his first eight swings. He had 11 on his first 15 whacks against Sandy Guerrero, the Nashville Sounds’ hitting coach. St. Louis’ Matt Holliday, the Yankees’ Swisher, Toronto’s Vernon Wells and Arizona’s Chris Young didn’t escape the first round.
bouncing all over the big screen, Thunderstix and Vuvuzelas — oops, not those noisemakers, they aren’t allowed at Angel Stadium. CC Sabathia isn’t sure any of that stuff really matters much. “I can’t say it’s better players,” said the burly Yankees ace, who won’t pitch tonight. “It’s just one of those things. What is it, 13 years in a row? It’s pretty much luck I guess.” A new rule keeps Sabathia and other pitchers who started on Sunday from being on the active roster. Tampa Bay lefty David Price will start tonight for the AL. The NL players believe it’s their turn to finally turn the page on this decade-old drought. And why not think that way? This game is being played within miles of Disneyland — “Happiest Place on Earth” — where thousands of kids (adults, too) get to dream big every day. Six-foot-tall, baseballthemed Mickey Mouse statues, some painted in stars and wearing caps or holding baseballs, are scattered around town. “We know everyone’s here to have a good time but at the same time our priority is to win the game,” Jimenez said. To do so, Jimenez and Co. must hold down an AL lineup featuring Josh Hamilton in the cleanup hole and Vladimir Guerrero batting fifth — with sluggers Alex Ro-
driguez and David Ortiz as backups for manager Joe Girardi. A daunting task indeed. Big swings often decide the game. Still, with the likes of Albert Pujols and Howard on the NL side, it would look pretty even. “We came back against the National League bullpen in 2003,” said All-Star coach Bud Black of the NL West-leading San Diego Padres. “I can’t explain (the streak). I wish I knew. There’s mutual respect league to league. I don’t think the AL senses any superiority at all. Even going back to my playing days in both leagues there was never that sense.” Aside from having fun with peers during a short break from the demands of the 162-game schedule, everybody involved wants to shine at the All-Star game. Just do a little something. Angels center fielder Torii Hunter has plans to make the highlight reels. “I’m going to take a home run away from somebody and duplicate what I did in 2002 taking a home run away from Barry Bonds,” Hunter said with a grin. He insists he will crash into the wall to do it if need be. Home-field advantage for the World Series is on the line. “Now with what’s at stake,” said NL coach Bruce Bochy of the San Francisco Giants, “the National League needs to stop this.”
honor for me to be out here. Hopefully we can put everything together and break the losing streak.” Philadelphia slugger Ryan Howard will be the National League’s designated hitter and bat cleanup for his regular skipper, Manuel. “Not only is he my guy, he’s got 119 atbats against left-handed pitchers and 65 RBIs,” Manuel said. “He can hit ’em. He’s hitting .294. He’s very capable of hitting fourth in an All-Star lineup.” There was some confusion, however, about Boston third baseman Adrian Beltre. AL manager Joe Girardi announced that Texas third baseman Michael Young would replace Beltre, who left Sunday’s game at
Toronto with a strained left hamstring. But less than an hour later, Beltre said he planned to play. He worked out at Angel Stadium on Monday afternoon and was deemed ready to go. MLB executive Phyllis Merhige said an announcement about Beltre’s status was made prematurely. “They announced it without telling me,” Beltre said. “I’m think I’m going to play and I’m going to be on the active roster.” Girardi is starting Evan Longoria of the Rays at third base, meaning Alex Rodriguez will come off the bench. “Hopefully I can come in in the middle of the game and get a big hit,” A-Rod said.

Favre remains elusive
Ninth stage today
BY JEROME PUGMIRE Associated Press
MORZINE, France — The Tour de France is shaping up as a three-way race among leader Cadel Evans of Australia, defending champion Alberto Contador of Spain and Andy Schleck of Luxembourg. Evans leads Schleck by just 20 seconds after Schleck won the hardest stage so far on Sunday — a grueling Alpine trek where Lance Armstrong cracked. “Getting the yellow jersey at the Tour is always something special,” the 33-year-old Evans said on Monday’s rest day in Morzine. “To swap the (world champion’s) rainbow jersey for the yellow jersey is a rare feat that I’ve had the honor to experience.” With two-time Tour winner Contador short of his best form, Evans realizes he has a good chance to win. He slightly injured his left forearm in a minor crash Sunday. “The legs are still going, which is the important thing,” Evans said. “That is what the main concern is right now. It’s a little bit uncomfortable right now. Hopefully with a good night’s sleep, I should be all right. I’ll try to take it as easy as possible, and get as much physiotherapy as possible on my arm.” Contador trails by 61 seconds ahead of today’s ninth stage. The punishing Alpine route featuring two category 1 climbs, and a tougher one that is beyond classification: a mammoth 15.9-mile ride up the Col de la Madeleine, one of the Tour’s most formidable mountain passes. “It will be a really hard and complicated stage, and we should see the main contenders in the Madeleine,” Contador said Monday, adding that he welcomes more attacks from Schleck and others to increase the overall speed of the race. Meanwhile, Armstrong finished in 61st place in the eighth stage and is more than 13 minutes behind Evans. “He can’t come back from it ... especially against some of the best climbers in the world,” Armstrong’s former U.S. Postal teammate Frankie Andreu said. It was a collective victory for all three Tour contenders to see the 38-year-old Armstrong plummet to 39th place overall. “Obviously the Tour’s finished for me,” Armstrong said after Sunday’s stage.
Blunt force killed driver Associated Press
SEATTLE — The King County Medical Examiner says an NHRA driver who crashed after crossing the finish line died of severe injuries to his head, neck and torso. Mark Niver, 60, of Phoenix, died Sunday at the NHRA Northwest Nationals. He was competing in the Top Alcohol dragster class in the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing series. The parachutes on his car ripped away after they were deployed, and Niver couldn’t stop his dragster before it slammed into the protective netting at the end of the runway. According to the medical examiner’s report Monday, Niver suffered severe injuries to his spinal cord, aorta, esophagus, trachea and ribs. His death was ruled an accident. A spokesman for the King County Sheriff’s Office says it’s still investigating.
SOUTH FroM 1c “He’s been struggling a little bit,” Kernersville coach Chad Loflin said. “But tonight, he was back to being good ol’ Pete, and our guys came through with some big hits.” Kernersville scored nine of its 10 runs with two outs. Schultz painted corners with an 85-mph brush, but Smith, a youngster who will be a junior at Northwest Cabarrus didn’t back down. “Their guy was good, but Weston matched him pitch for pitch,” Lowman said. Odell’s prolonged at-bat finally drained a little out of Smith, but he held South’s 3-2 lead through the sixth. He couldn’t hold it in the seventh, however, after a twoout walk and an error got him in trouble. The error came on

‘3’ in good company BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press
CHARLOTTE — Dale Earnhardt last drove his famed No. 3 to Victory Lane almost 10 years ago, at Talladega, in the final win of his illustrious career. He was killed less than a year later in an accident on the last lap of the Daytona 500, and there’s been a long debate since over how his storied number should be used. The answer for Richard Childress, who holds the rights to the number, was sparingly. He’s allowed Dale Earnhardt Jr. to use it three times, most recently two weeks ago at Daytona, where he drove it to a victory in the Nationwide Series race. And he’s assigned it to his grandson, Austin Dillon, a rookie in the Truck Series. What did Dillon do? Drove the black No. 3 to Victory Lane on Sunday at Iowa for his first career victory at NASCAR’s national level. It marked consecutive weeks that a driver took the No. 3 to Victory Lane, and it’s just the third win with that number since Earnhardt’s death. “It’s so awesome to see that number running well again,” Dillon said Monday. “To see the 3 when you’re leaving the track, it was on top of the board, that was cool for me and my grandfather.” It’s perhaps the most iconic number in NASCAR and elicits more emotion than Richard Petty’s No. 43 or the Wood Brothers’ No. 21. Since NASCAR doesn’t retire numbers, the 43 and 21 have been used long beyond their heyday. But Childress held onto the 3 and has been deliberate in holding it off the track. Racing with The Intimidator’s stamp on the side of the car is pressure-packed for the driver. And watching it on the track can provide mixed emotions for fans, who can feel both somber and elated by the sight of the 3. It’s why Earnhardt Jr. is adamant he won’t use the number again. He’s 2-for-3 borrowing his father’s number, with his other victory coming in a Nationwide race at Daytona in 2002. “I will never do it. I’ll never rethink it,” he said. “I’ll never consider it. I think that it’s important for everybody to know that that’s as concrete as it gets. It’s hard for me. It’s a balancing act between (the media) and the public and myself and my own feelings. It’s such a tough deal. It’s real emotional for me preparing for it and putting it
a ball South’s solid third baseman Patrick Bearden gobbles up 95 percent of the time, but suddenly Kernersville had runners at second and third, and Lowman had a dilemma. Odell (3-for-3) was the next batter. Corey McKinney (4for-5), another terrific hitter, was waiting behind him. Lowman’s decision to walk Odell was made mostly because of the torture he’d inflicted on Smith in his previous at-bat. “I was kinda happy they wanted to pitch to me,” said McKinney, a NW Guilford product who is headed to Guilford Tech. “I want to be the guy up there in that situation.” McKinney didn’t crush the ball, but his bouncer up the middle was just out of shortstop Gunnar Hogan’s reach — Hogan was playing him to pull — and Kernersville went from down 3-2 to up 4-3. Two more two-out singles
AUSTIN DILLON together. It’s just so damn hard to know how everybody feels about it. “I don’t ever want to do it again. And I’ll never change my mind, ever.” Dillon doesn’t have the same emotional pull. The 20-year-old sophomore at High Point University was in middle school when Earnhardt was killed, and his history with the number is based more on legend than what he remembers. But he understands the importance of the No. 3, particularly to race fans. “It’s a powerful number,” Dillon said. “It makes the people in the stands stand up and cheer.” And unlike Earnhardt Jr., Dillon enjoys using the number. “I love driving it. It’s a lot of fun,” he said. Dillon’s use of the number doesn’t resonate with fans the same way it does as when Earnhardt Jr. is in a No. 3 car. But he’s NASCAR’s most popular driver and the son of the seven-time champion.
followed, and it was 6-3. “They don’t strike out,” Houston said. “They just keep putting balls in play.” In its half of the seventh, South filled the bases with none out, but Schultz escaped unscathed with the aid of a diving play by third baseman Tyler Surface on a ball stung by Joseph Basinger. “That pretty much killed us,” Houston said. Kernersville (20-12) tacked on four more runs against South’s bullpen in the eighth to put the game out of reach. “Sure, we didn’t make that one play in the seventh, but that’s not what beat us,” Zubillaga analyzed. “If we’d hit early like we should’ve hit, then we’re never in position to lose this one.” South’s fine season is over if it loses another one tonight at East Forsyth High. “It’s still the first one to three wins, and they’re not
Dillon is a young driver who hasn’t had much time to build up a following. And in his grandfather’s equipment at Richard Childress Racing, he’s on a fast-track to stardom that’s not afforded to other young drivers. He knows his family ties give him an advantage, but he’s not taking it for granted. “I really take it to heart each time I strap in that car or the truck or whatever I drive,” he said. “I have a good opportunity. I’ve tried to take as much advantage of it as I can. (In Iowa) I did and we won, proved that we can do it with all the competition in the Truck Series.” Now comes question about his future. Dillon said he’s down for another year in the Truck Series next season, and there’s talk of some Nationwide Series starts. Childress might even let him take the No. 3 up to the next level. Beyond that is anyone’s guess.
there yet,” said Zubillaga, who had an RBI double on his last at-bat. “We’ll have Dylan Walker pitching. He’s 7-0.

Patrick Bearden lofted a flyball to right field, and it wasn’t quite deep enough to bring in Zubillaga from third. Joseph Basinger then hit a sharp ZUBILLAGA groundball to third baseman Tyler Surface, who made a great play to throw home and force Zubillaga for out No. 2. With the bases still loaded,
HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Brett Favre had finished throwing to the youngsters at Oak Grove High School and poked his head out of the field house to see a few reporters standing near his truck, waiting to ask him about his future plans. F a v r e ducked back inside and, moments lat- FAVRE er, someone else jumped into Favre’s truck and drove it around to the front of the building Monday morning. With a grin on his face, the 40-year-old quarterback ran out of the building, hopped in and drove off with nothing more than a playful wave to the waiting reporters. Whether it’s throwing passes to high school receivers or dodging members of the media, Favre looks like he’s getting along just fine on that surgically repaired ankle. Favre has yet to tell the Minnesota Vikings if he will return for a 20th season in the NFL, but most people with the team and around the NFL would be stunned if he did not come back. He had arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle in May and has been throwing to receivers at the high school for a few weeks, lending an air of inevitability to yet another sequel to the summer blockbuster “Favrea-palooza,” as Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe likes to call it. “He ain’t working out for no reason,” Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson said recently. “I welcome him back. There’s nothing I can do about it so I’m going to welcome him back and hopefully get to the Super Bowl.” The Vikings have made it clear to Favre that they would be fine with a similar timeline to last season, when he joined the team after it broke training camp in Mankato, Minn., in time for the second game of the preseason. It didn’t take long for him to get settled in. Favre had one of the best seasons of his career, with career bests in completion percentage (68.4), quarterback rating (107.2) and fewest interceptions (7), while throwing for 33 TDs and 4,202 yards to lead the Vikings to an NFC North title. Minnesota lost to New Orleans in the NFC title game. Favre threw for 310 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, the last coming in Saints territory at the end of regulation that put the game into overtime. Favre took a tremendous beating in that game and said afterward that he would not take long to make a decision on returning for the second year of his contract. Favre, who did post a statement on his website reminding everyone that his ankle problems didn’t mean his career was over. “He will be there for sure,” Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald Jr. said last week at his camp in Minneapolis. “Who would turn down $13 million? Would you?”
up to the plate walked the ever-dangerous Randy Shepherd. Schultz went after the South Rowan slugger by mixing his pitches well and was able to get Shepherd out on strikes to end the inning. It was the turning point of the game, and it could end up being the turning point of the series. South coach Michael Lowman isn’t letting his guys get down about the 2-1 deficit, though. “It’s a series and first one to three wins, so we just have to come out tomorrow and fight, play hard and with heart,” Lowman said. “If we can do that and get it back here for Game 5, I like our chances.” South will send lefty Dylan Walker against Kernersville tonight, while Kernersville coach Chad Loflin said he was unsure as to who he would counter with on the mound in Game 4.

UNC’s Sturdivant cited for drug possession Associated Press
CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina coach Butch Davis says he will discipline All-ACC linebacker Quan Sturdivant, a former West Stanly star, following his weekend citation for drug possession. Albemarle police chief Ronnie Michael says Sturdivant was cited Saturday morning for simple possession of marijuana during a traffic stop. Michael says it is a misdemeanor charge because it was less than a half-ounce of the drug. Sturdivant was not taken into custody and faces an Aug. 2 court date in Stanly County. In a statement Monday, Davis says he is disappointed in the senior, though he didn’t specify how the first-team all-ACC performer would be punished. DURHAM — David Cutcliffe has spent nearly three years cleaning up Duke’s sagging football program. The latest step — cleaning up the Blue Devils’ stadium. Cutcliffe and his team spent two hours Monday morning picking up trash at Wallace Wade Stadium in
a team-building exercise he introduced when he was at Mississippi. For the Blue Devils, the symbolism is obvious. Cutcliffe says reviving a program that hasn’t had a winning season since 1994 is “an all-the-time thing” and says it’s just another way to build pride in and respect for football at Duke. KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee players involved in a bar brawl must wait at least another day before learning if they will be charged in the incident that left an off-duty Knoxville police officer seriously injured. Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk said Monday that more charges are pending. He said there are witnesses of the early Friday morning fight at Bar Knoxville who still need to be interviewed for a first or second time. There is no surveillance video of the fight at the 18-and-up bar, which spilled out into the street of the area near campus known as “The Strip.” “We still have some additional interviews that we need to do, and
(additional) charges are pending the conclusion of that investigation,” DeBusk said. FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino says wide receiver Carlton Salters has left the team and intends to pursue a baseball career.

NHL CHICAGO — The Chicago Blackhawks, who have lost seven players since winning the Stanley Cup a month ago, said they plan to keep 23-year-old restricted free agent defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson. RALEIGH — The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to a oneyear, two-way deal with center Nick Dodge. The deal would pay Dodge $500,000 at the NHL level and
$55,000 in the minors, though there is a guarantee of $75,000.
NFL DALLAS — A former Dallas Cowboys player who was inside the team’s indoor practice facility when it collapsed last year contends the accident caused a careerending injury, and he wants unspecified damages from the builder and companies operated by team owner Jerry Jones. Tight end Jamar Hunt, who was on the Cowboys’ roster as a rookie free agent last spring, said in a court filing that he suffered “serious, disabling and permanent injuries” when the tentlike structure fell on May 2, 2009. Hunt was cut by the Cowboys before training camp last year and has yet to catch on with another NFL team. Hunt’s attorney, Michael Guajardo, said the player suffered a herniated disk in his neck when a steel support landed on him. He said Hunt, who is also a deep snapper, faces a “double-edged sword” because he can’t be cleared to play without surgery, but having the

SOCCER MADRID — Spain erupted with its biggest fiesta in memory Monday when its football team returned to a jubilant nation after winning the World Cup, giving elated Spaniards a break from months of economic gloom and political squabbling. Hundreds of thousands of people — if not more — jammed Madrid’s historic avenues as an open air bus ferried the national team down stately avenues to cheers from Spaniards decked out in a sea of red and yellow, the colors of the Spanish flag.

Commish speaks about Heat wave Associated Press
Calderon would fill need at PG for ’Cats BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press
CHARLOTTE — Charlotte Bobcats center Tyson Chandler said Monday he’s been told he’s being traded to the Raptors amid a report Toronto is also poised to send Hedo Turkoglu to the Phoenix Suns. Chandler wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press that his agent, Jeff Schwartz, informed him that he’s being traded. A Bobcats spokesman said no deal is complete, and general manager Rod Higgins didn’t return messages seeking comment. The Toronto Star reported the Suns would get Turkoglu and send guard Leandro Barbosa to the Raptors. Toronto would then move guard Jose Calderon and forward Reggie Evans to Charlotte for Chandler and forward Boris Diaw. The report said the complicated deal is pending league approval and could also include a trade exception for Charlotte. The trade would help the Raptors rebuild after losing Chris Bosh to Miami in free agency. Turkoglu would get a new start after his disappointing one year in Toronto and the Suns would acquire a playmaker after losing free agent Amare Stoudemire to New York. Calderon would give Charlotte a starting point guard after Raymond Felton signed with the Knicks. Dumping Chandler’s $12.7 million salary would give owner Michael Jordan’s team flexibility to make future moves. “Yes I was told that I am being traded,” Chandler wrote. “To be honest I don’t have much to say now except I’m excited about the upcoming season. I feel great and I know it will be a good one.” Chandler’s agent and Lon Babby, the agent for Turkoglu, didn’t immediately return messages seeking comment. If the deal goes through, Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo will be reunited with Barbosa and Diaw from his days in Phoenix. It will also mean the Raptors will unload Turkoglu and the $40 million still due on his contract. Charlotte deemed Diaw, due $18 million over the next two seasons, expendable after giving Tyrus Thomas a fiveyear, $40 million deal. Thomas, who signed the contract on Monday, is expected to replace Diaw in the starting power forward spot. “I’ve started over 100 games in my career, playoffs,” said Thomas, acquired from Chicago in February. “Me starting is nothing new to me. ... I’m happy to be able to come back and play for the Bobcats and coach (Larry) Brown.” Calderon would provide Charlotte with a better shooter than Felton, whom the Bobcats made no attempt to re-sign because they were so close to paying the luxury tax, a figure Jordan said they wouldn’t exceed. Calderon, who averaged 10.3 points and 5.9 assists last season, has been criticized in the past for his defense, an area the demanding Brown stresses. He’s also still due about $30 million over the next three seasons. Evans, due $5 million next season, would give the Bobcats more depth up front. Chandler had an injury-plagued season in Charlotte after being acquired from New Orleans last summer. He decided not to opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent. “I’m not sure what other deals they have going on,” Chandler said of the Raptors. “But I feel like anywhere I go healthy I’ll fit in.”
surgery will brand him as a damaged commodity to NFL teams. ALLEN PARK, Mich. — The Detroit Lions agreed to terms with backup quarterback Shaun Hill.
LeBron James raises his arms during an event in Miami on Friday.
NBA commissioner David Stern congratulated LeBron James on his decision. He just wishes it came without “The Decision.” Stern said Monday he would have advised James to tell the Cleveland Cavaliers of his choice to leave for the Miami Heat earlier than he did and that the two-time MVP’s public announcement shouldn’t have come in a made-fortelevision special that attracted nearly 10 million viewers. The commissioner said James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh violated no league rules in discussing free agency among themselves and that the league isn’t investigating how the Heat managed to land all three. That doesn’t mean Stern didn’t take issue with certain elements of free agency, particularly James’ decision to say he was leaving Cleveland on ESPN. “The advice that he received on this was poor,” Stern said after NBA owners met in Las Vegas. “The performance was fine. His honesty and his integrity, I think, shined through. But this decision was ill-conceived.” Meanwhile, Stern also took action against Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert, fining him $100,000 for words that the commissioner described as “a little bit extreme.” Gilbert released a sharptongued statement shortly after James’ announcement last Thursday. Rev. Jesse Jackson responded to Gilbert’s remarks by saying the Cavs owner sees James as a “runaway slave.” Stern said Jackson is a friend and ally to the league, but as with Gilbert, felt the reaction simply went too far. “However well-meaning Jesse may be in the premise on this one, he is, as he rarely is, mistaken,” Stern said. “And
I would have told him so had he called me before he issued his statement, rather than this morning.” Gilbert says he “strongly” disagrees with Jackson’s criticism. HEAT MIAMI — Add Udonis Haslem to the list of players taking less money to play for the Heat next season. Haslem signed a five-year deal worth around $20 million, roughly $14 million less than he could have received if he accepted more lucrative offers from the Dallas Mavericks and Denver Nuggets. “This is a combination of having a great opportunity to win, which is why we play this game, and an opportunity to still stay close to my family and be with my mother,” said Haslem, whose mother has been ill for some time. The Timberwolves and Heat completed their trade that sends Michael Beasley to Minnesota for two secondround picks and cash. LAKERS LOS ANGELES — Derek Fisher says he’s staying with the Los Angeles Lakers. Los Angeles lost free agent Jordan Farmar to New Jersey on Monday but signed Steve Blake last week. MAGIC ORLANDO, Fla. — A person familiar with the negotiations says the Magic have agreed to a deal with free agent Quentin Richardson. PACERS INDIANAPOLIS — Center Roy Hibbert won’t need surgery after injuring his right knee while training with the Jamaican national team. SPURS SAN ANTONIO — The Spurs have signed Tiago Splitter, three years after drafting the heralded big man from Spain. Splitter, 25, was the MVP of the Spanish League last season.
Knicks focused on present despite cap space BY RACHEL COHEN Associated Press
GREENBURGH, N.Y. — No more talk about next summer. Forget about the Knicks’ cap space and potential free agents, too. Team president Donnie Walsh wants to talk about the players on his improved roster right now. New York introduced new arrivals Raymond Felton, Anthony Randolph, Kelenna Azubuike and Ronny Turiaf on Monday. Not quite the same as showing off LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. But Walsh insisted that adding this group to the Knicks’ one big acquisition, Amare Stoudemire, puts the club in position to compete in the present. “This is a different conversation than I had with you guys two years ago,” Walsh told reporters. “So when you finish this, don’t go out and say a name, and then for two years or one year we’re all focussed on that one name. The guys that I’m bringing here now are
meant to come here and stay here. They’re the kind of players you’d want even if you did have the cap flexibility to go out and get another player. “So it isn’t like everyone should be looking over their shoulder. I think the days of just basically making deals to get rid of cap space are for the most part over.” For two years, the Knicks piled up losses as they shed salaries to free up enough cap room to make a run at James this summer. That didn’t pan out, of course, and now the pressure is on to start winning after nine consecutive losing seasons. Then again, winning also could make the Knicks a more attractive destination for a marquee free agent next summer. “If you’re a good team, you have a good record and you have cap space, and there’s a great player out there, then maybe he’d think about coming here,” Walsh said. James’ decision to join Wade and Bosh in Miami certainly suggested that. Walsh acknowledged conventional wisdom in the NBA
is changing after three established stars chose the same franchise. “It’s something new to me,” he said. “It probably is born out of the ages. These guys have been playing against each other in AAU. They pick their AAU team, so why not pick their pro team?” It doesn’t seem so bad when they all pick your team. As Walsh joked, “I just want them to all say they want to play in New York.” Felton believes coach Mike D’Antoni’s style fits him better than that of his old coach — in this case, Larry Brown, whom he played for in Charlotte before signing with the Knicks as a free agent. The point guard averaged 12.1 points and 5.6 assists last season. “My style of game, getting the ball down the court, using my speed, using my quickness to make things happen on the offensive end — it’s going to be a lot of fun,” he said. “That’s what (D’Antoni) loves to do, get the ball and go.” Randolph, who turns 21 on Thursday, could have the most impact on how attractive the Knicks
look in a year. They acquired the 6-foot-10 forward along with Azubuike and Turiaf in last week’s sign-and-trade deal that sent David Lee to Golden State. The No. 14 pick in the 2008 draft played just 19.6 minutes per game in two seasons with Golden State, averaging 9.2 points and 6.0 rebounds while he struggled to fit into coach Don Nelson’s system. Asked about his relationship with Nelson, Randolph smiled and mulled his answer for a few moments. “It was just a situation where I think he wanted me to be a certain type of player and do certain things a certain way, and I did to the best of my ability,” he said carefully. “But I think Coach D’Antoni is the best situation for me as far as a coach that is just going to roll the ball out there and let me go out there and play and show the many things I can do on the basketball court.” The Knicks also are set to add 7-foot-1 Russian center Timofey Mozgov.

Default having been made in the payment of the note thereby secured by the said Deed of Trust and the undersigned, Brock & Scott, PLLC, having been substituted as Trustee in said Deed of Trust, and the holder of the note evidencing said indebtedness having directed that the Deed of Trust be foreclosed, the undersigned Substitute Trustee will offer for sale at the courthouse door of the county courthouse where the property is located, or the usual and customary location at the county courthouse for conducting the sale on July 22, 2010 at 10:00AM, and will sell to the highest bidder for cash the following described property situated in Rowan County, North Carolina, to wit: Being all of Lot No. 40 of Wendover Heights, Phase Three, Map Two, as shown on that certain map recorded on Map Book 9995 at Page 3917 in the Office of the Register of Deeds for Rowan County, North Carolina. Save and except any releases, deeds of release or prior conveyances of record. Said property is commonly known as 1026 Parkside Drive, Salisbury, NC 28147. Third party purchasers must pay the excise tax, and the court costs of Forty-Five Cents (45) per One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) pursuant to NCGS 7A-308(a)(1). A cash deposit (no personal checks) of five percent (5%) of the purchase price, or Seven Hundred Fifty Dollars ($750.00), whichever is greater, will be required at the time of the sale. Following the expiration of the statutory upset bid period, all the remaining amounts are immediately due and owing. Said property to be offered pursuant to this Notice of Sale is being offered for sale, transfer and conveyance "AS IS WHERE IS." There are no representations of warranty relating to the title or any physical, environmental, health or safety conditions existing in, on, at, or relating to the property being offered for sale. This sale is made subject to all prior liens, unpaid taxes, any unpaid land transfer taxes, special assessments, easements, rights of way, deeds of release, and any other encumbrances or exceptions of record. To the best of the knowledge and belief of the undersigned, the current owner(s) of the property is/are Dave Dange and wife, Suzi Dave Dange. An Order for possession of the property may be issued pursuant to G.S. 45-21.29 in favor of the purchaser and against the party or parties in possession by the clerk of superior court of the county in which the property is sold. Any person who occupies the property pursuant to a rental agreement entered into or renewed on or after October 1, 2007, may, after receiving the notice of sale, terminate the rental agreement upon 10 days' written notice to the landlord. The notice shall also state that upon termination of a rental agreement, the tenant is liable for rent due under the rental agreement prorated to the effective date of the termination. If the trustee is unable to convey title to this property for any reason, the sole remedy of the purchaser is the return of the deposit. Reasons of such inability to convey include, but are not limited to, the filing of a bankruptcy petition prior to the confirmation of the sale and reinstatement of the loan without the knowledge of the trustee.

China Grove Farmers Market
Salisbury Post Tuesday, July 13, 2010
Cold watermelon, fresh-baked bread, flowers and fruits and veggies ripe from the vine. Those treats and more are once again within walking distance of downtown every Friday at the China Grove Roller Mill. With more and more North Carolinians demanding fresh produce, the Market at the Mill is a farmers market to be proud of. “Farmers markets provide a sense of community.” Commissioner of Agriculture Richard Reich said. “They strengthen the bonds between people. Markets like this one keep our state’s rich agricultural heritage alive.” The market is open from 4 pm to 7 p.m. each Friday until September, local growers can gather to sell their
wares. Offerings can include vegetables and fruits from Rowan and Cabarrus counties and farm-raised beef steaks and pork sausage. It’s a return to tradition for the China Grove Roller Mill, where in the old days farmers used to gather and sell commodities.

Elect KAREN SIMPSON BIERNACKI DISTRICT ATTORNEY - 2010
“A Voice For Justice”
on all Tractors in Stock!!!
“It has been my honor and privilege to serve the citizens of Rowan County as an Assistant District Attorney over the years. I have tried to be a voice for victims in our community and to bring to them a sense that justice was served in their respective situations. I have demanded a lot for those who deserve a lot. That has not always been easy or popular in a system that is finding itself overworked and underfunded, but it has been the right thing to do and worth the effort it takes to hold an offender accountable for his or her actions. I do not intend to surrender that philosophy simply for the sake of expediency. I do not believe that the citizens of Rowan County want that either. As a prosecutor, I took an oath to administer justice. That means justice for all parties, including victims.” “I am a prosecutor. I have always wanted to be a prosecutor. I have been tried and tested in our Courts and by our citizen juries. I have also proven myself to be a leader in the District Attorney’s Office and a mentor for the new attorneys who come into the office. With the help of the voters, I will be able to continue to be a voice for justice and serve the citizens of Rowan County as their District Attorney.”

Make Summer Fun Safe for all
The warm weather is here and that means plenty of outdoor excursions and activities. Whether your plans involve trips to the beach, park, forest or simply your own backyard, make sure safety is a priority. Get the most out of your favorite outdoor activities with these precautionary tips. Sun Safety Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. It can be prevented by taking steps to protect your skin. Remember, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays shine down even on cloudy days. So even when the sun seems to be hiding, follow safety measures. * Wear sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher. * Apply sunscreen to dry skin 15 to 30 minutes before going outside, again every 2 hours once in the sun, and even more often if you’re swimming or sweating. * Stay out of the sun from 10 am to 4 pm, when the sun is strongest. * Seek shade when it’s available. * Cover up as much as reasonably possible. * Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses that block UV rays.
Bug Safety For most people, insect bites and bee stings aren’t dangerous. But for people who are allergic to them, bites and stings can cause a potentially fatal allergic reaction called anaphylactic shock. This must be handled as a medical emergency. When in the woods, wear long sleeves and pants to prevent tick bites. Most tick bites are harmless. But many types of ticks carry and spread Lyme Disease. Check your clothing, socks and body for ticks when returning from your trip to spot potential ticks early on before they bite.

Douglas A. Smith for District Court Judge
Heat Safety To avoid heat-related illness, drink plenty of water or liquids with electrolytes. Know the symptoms of heat rash and heat stroke to prevent serious problems. If you have young children or pets, never leave them alone in the car with the windows rolled up. If a person has stopped sweating, heat injury can occur and medical attention should be taken promptly.
Bike Safety When you’re biking, make sure your bike is the right size and always wear a helmet that fits you. For the most protection, use a bike light and wear light-colored clothes. Plan ahead to stay safe and the entire family can enjoy this season of fun in the sun.

Paid for by the Committee to Elect Douglas A. Smith District Court Judge
Water Safety Watch your children closely when they’re in or around a pool. Before they learn to swim, flotation devices can help them stay above water, but they are not foolproof and should not be used as a replacement for adult supervision. Early on, teach children the rules of safe swimming, including no running near a pool and no diving in waters less than five feet deep.

Do you know why . . . . .China Grove Farmers Day is always held the 3rd Saturday in July? The festival was designed to promote the farming in the area and July is traditionally when farmers brought produce to sell into town. And that’s why it always feels like it’s held on “the hottest day of the year” !
Delicious and Healthy Vegetables are Key for Summer Menus Salisbury Post Tuesday, July 13, 2010
The weather is warm, the entertaining factor is high, and perhaps youâ€™re looking for some light and delicious foods to serve at your next get-together. Vegetable dishes can be the ticket this time of year. The warm weather season is one in which many vegetables are in season and at peak flavor. This could make menu creation as easy as picking a few treats from the garden or at your local farmers market. Avocadoes, zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant, and a host of other vegetables and fruits can be part of meal creation. The key is looking for the freshest varieties that are at their peak. Consider these tips: Avocadoes Nutrition: Potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, folate, riboflavin, and more Selection/Storage: Color should be uniform without blemishes.
