Blaze shuts down deck

4 indicted on murder charges BY JESSIE BURCHETTE


Firefighters respond to a fire in the parking deck at Rowan Regional Medical Center. Two burning vehicles shut down the parking deck at Rowan Regional Medical Center on Tuesday afternoon. Firefighters quickly extinguished the flames, but the fire prevented people with cars in the parking deck from getting to them as investigators ensured there was no structural damage. The fire started shortly after 5 p.m. on the second level of the concrete parking deck. According to emergency radio transmissions, hospital security guards tried unsuccessfully to snuff it out with fire extinguishers. At one point, someone on the hospital frequency said a car was in flames and “too dangerous” to be fought with the handheld extinguishers. Firefighters were dispatched to the structure on West Henderson Street at 5:14 p.m. and arrived within a few minutes, said Salisbury Fire Department Battalion Chief Chris Kepley. They found one vehicle with a fire in the engine compartment and another fully in flames. They had the fire out by around 5:30 p.m., according to emergency radio transmissions. They had to wait a short time for water. A pipe in the structure that supplies water to firefighters was not charged and needed to be before they could begin their attack.

The fire department closed several streets leading to the parking deck. Hospital staff, patients and visitors stood outside and watched smoke billow from the second level as firefighters worked inside and outside the structure. The hospital had an engineer on the scene shortly after the fire was extinguished. “They were going to make sure the parking deck was still structurally sound, because on the back side where it’s elevated over a grassy area, there were flames licking out and up to level three,” Kepley said. “They didn’t see anything obvious, our guys didn’t.” Kepley said the engineer determined there may be some stress cracks within the structure. The areas directly surrounding the incident have been blocked off. “They aren’t letting anybody park in the fire area, above it or below it,” she said. “The rest of the parking deck is in pretty good shape.” The parking deck reopened around 7 p.m. Tuesday. All four Salisbury fire stations responded to the scene. Spencer, Granite Quarry and Ellis Cross Country fire departments provided additional assistance. The cause of the fire remained under investigation Tuesday evening.

Spencer appoints Spear to Board of Aldermen BY SHELLEY SMITH

The Spencer Board of Alderman appointed Clifford Edgar “Pappy” Spear to the board during its meeting Tuesday. Spear will replace former Alderman Donnie Hinson, who resigned due to health complications. Spear was the next-highest recipient of votes in the 2009 election. Alderman Jeff Morris made the motion for the appointment of Spear, noting that he had a conversation with him about the proposed appointment. “I’ve spoken with Pappy and he’d be delighted to do it,” Morris said. “He has been involved with Spencer government for 40

of the past 45 years.” The board also voted for a change to the sweepstakes cafe ordinance. Because of recent legislation, and a very high chance Gov. Beverly Perdue will sign a bill banning sweepstakes cafe operations, the board agreed to prorate the town’s $1,000 per-machine fee, and will allow sweepstakes cafe owners to pay the prorated fee in monthly payments. Spencer currently has two sweepstakes cafes. For example, for the next five months — until the ban goes into effect Dec. 1 — a five-month payment for one machine would total $416.85, which is a monthly payment of $83.37 per machine.

A Rowan County grand jury has indicted two people on first-degree murder, opening the way for prosecutors to seek the death penalty. The jury returned a total of seven indictments related to five recent murders. The grand jury indicted Fredrick Sylvester Hedgepeth and Larry Wayne Call on firstdegree murder charges. Jurors indicted Hedgepeth, 25, of Charlotte, in the murder of Jerry Bullin and his wife, Jody Bullin, on June 2 at Ingram Motorsports, 350 Auction Drive, adjacent to I-85. HEDGEPETH The Bullins were shot to death and their bodies hidden inside of the business where Hedgepeth was the caretaker. Investigators contend Hedgepeth had made arrangements to buy a car from the Conover couple and ended up killing them and driving off in the 2009 Honda Accord. The grand jury also returned a true bill of indictment on a charge of robbery with a dangerous weapon. The indictments specifies Hedgepeth took the Honda Accord, an AT&T Samsung cellular phone and a debit card, with a total value of $20,000. Alyssa Caroline Watts, identified as Hedgepeth’s girlfriend, was indicted on two counts of accessory after the fact by helping him attempt to escape, by allowing Hedgepeth to leave the Bullins’ car at her residence and allowing him to change his bloody clothing. The indictment also specifies that Watts drove Hedgepeth back to the scene of the shooting in her vehicle and made false statements to detectives. The jury also indicted Larry Wayne Call on first-degree murder in the stabbing death of Kevin Michael Rufty, 52, of CALL Salisbury, on Grubb Ferry Road on June 27. The jury indicted John Curtis Lambert, 30, of China Grove, with murder in the shooting of Larry Thomas Andrews Jr. of Kernersville on North Main Street at the downtown square on June 27. The indictment did not specify first- or second-deLAMBERT gree murder. Salisbury Police said the shooting followed a dispute in a local bar over a pool table. Police said Lambert was thrown out of the bar and waited two hours to settle


town staff to look into the proposed prorating and monthly payments, and also passed a request to in no way restrict Internet cafes from operating, nor tax the operations. Three people spoke against the $1,000 per machine fee, including owners of the sweepstakes cafe in Spencer Shops, Gwen Bradley and George Brown. “There is no way that I could pay $1,000 per machine,” Bradley said. “People come in here (doing things) other than what you might say wanting to play games. They end up looking on the Internet, checking e-mail, Facebook, Yahoo. “I’m here to petition the board not to make me pay $1,000 per Oscar A. Hunter George A. Reasor Raymond C. Miller Jerry N.

computer.” Bradley said that is she is forced to move her business, she wonders what the town will lose. “Family Dollar said their business has picked up tremendously,” she said. “The home supply store has also picked up. If I may be made to move from this building, the landlord, he won’t be getting rent. “I see a lot of vacant buildings here in Spencer.” Bradley stated to the board that she wished to be grandfathered in after learning that a sweepstakes cafe in Richfield was grandfathered in, not having to pay a fee for each machine.

LANDIS — Firefighters from nine departments battled a cotton dust fire early Tuesday at Parkdale Mills. The two-alarm fire occurred around 2:30 a.m. in the two-story section of the blocklong mill on South Main Street near West Ridge Avenue. Blake Overcash, a Landis firefighter, said Parkdale evacuated about 30 employees who had been working in the area. The fire was primarily in the ventilation system but got outside and dropped in between two metal walls. Landis Fire Chief Reed Linn said firefighters used metal saws to cut out sections of the metal before pouring water in to douse the flames. Firefighters remained on the scene for about three hours with the last units leaving around 5 a.m. An estimated 50 to 60 firefighters responded. In addition to Landis, other fire departments included: Kannapolis, China Grove, Atwell, Enochville, Bostian Heights, South Salisbury, Locke and Mount Mitchell. Linn said there were no injuries. Parkdale is back in operation today.

Brown, was also against the taxing. “If we would have known (about the machine fees) we would have had the opportunity to have a choice to do the work we did to get the building ready,” he said, adding that they would have never started the business had they known there would be such a high fee per machine. Henry Alexander, owner of the Spencer Plaza/Spencer Shops, also spoke to the board and is against the taxing. “When they came to get a business license they weren’t told they were going to be taxed in an absorbant rate,” Alexander said. “If they had been told then they would have had the opportunity to say wait, I can’t afford this, or, I can afford to do this. “You actually went ahead and injured someone’s business.” Morris asked the town to look at levying a privilege license fee, and to distinguish in the ordinance the difference between gambling and Internet access. If the town agrees with the proposed prorating and monthly rates, the board voted to allow the town to go ahead and start billing for the prorated amounts. On June 8, Spencer May-

“The fact that he went into the building after shooting her leads us to believe that he was actually in hunt for something or someone,” the chief said. The Emcore building was closed Tuesday but a stream of visitors dropped off flowers, candles and other items at a makeshift memorial. Company officials said the plant will reopen Thursday. In the meantime, employees are on paid leave. Larocca said Emcore is extending full salary and benefits to families of the victims for a year, paying funeral expenses and setting up a memorial fund. Stella Baca, who has lived in suburban Rio Rancho across the street from Basciano for years, said she had not seen signs something like this would happen. Baca last saw the couple and their twins Sunday, a day before the shooting. Basciano’s brown stucco home sits in a quiet neighborhood, with towering yucca plants decorating a gravel yard. Police were at the home Monday night. Baca said Reza, who moved out about a year ago, saw the children on weekends. She called the shooting “unbelievable.” “A lot of people’s lives were changed in a split second,” she said.



or Jody Everhart sent the board an e-mail asking if the board would like to lower the $1,000 per machine fee to $500 per machine. Everhart said he had spoken with the owners of the two sweepstakes cafes in Spencer, and both businesses said they were not sure if they would be able to remain in business if the $1,00 per machine fee was implemented. “Do we want to try to keep these two businesses and reduce the fee to $500 per computer,” he asked the board members in the e-mail. “I do not know if they would even stay at $500 per computer.” Everhart proposed a called meeting in his June 8 e-mail to discuss lowering the fee, however only one Alderman, Tracy Aitken, responded positively, saying she would attend a called meeting. Aldermen Reid Walters and Jeff Morris said they would not attend a called meeting, and stood by their $1,000 per-machine vote in April. There was no response from the remaining board members, and in turn, no change in the fee amount for each machine.

He fired in a foyer as employees tried to hide behind desks and hit Noble once in the back. Noble got out of the building on his own. Reza continued shooting, hitting Colvin in both legs. Other employees got her out of the building and gave her first aid. He then injured Mai, shooting her in the leg. “It appears as he was going through the interior of the building, he was actually looking for something or someone,” Schultz said, noting authorities may never know what Reza was looking for. At one point, Reza went into a cafeteria where employees were but merely looked around before returning to the office where he’d entered the building, police said. Reza then shot himself, Schultz said. The gunman had fired 21 rounds, most of them outside. Police recovered a .45-caliber semi-automatic handgun containing at least one round, plus additional ammunition. They also found a magazine to the gun outside, showing Reza reloaded before moving inside. As officers searched, they found employees hiding and told them to stay put. Schultz said Reza knew when his girlfriend might take a break.



as she lay helpless. Three others were shot and wounded before Reza killed himself. “We don’t know if he saw those first responders and was unable to make an escape, but for some reason, while in that office, he took the handgun that he had and shot himself once in the head,” Schultz said. On Tuesday, University Hospital officials upgraded Basciano’s condition from critical to serious. Hospital spokesman Billy Sparks said two of the wounded workers, 54-yearold Malissia Mai and 58-yearold Rodney Noble, have been released. The other, 58-yearold Dixie Colvin, was in satisfactory condition. Emcore’s chief operating officer, Chris Larocca, said Tuesday that Reza worked for the company as a skilled laborer in the photovoltaic area between 2006 and July 2009. He went on medical leave in March 2009, returned to work that June, then resigned the next month. Emergency dispatchers received more than 30 calls while Reza roamed the building. After the shooting in the break area, Reza shot out a window, climbed into an office and went into a hallway, shooting at employees trying to get out of his way.


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A gunman storming through his former workplace fired without provocation or warning at his first victim, then moved on in a spree that left three dead and four injured, police said Tuesday. A day after the shooting that ended with Robert Reza turning the gun on himself, Chief Ray Schultz detailed the 37-year-old’s rampage at solar manufacturer Emcore Corp.’s Albuquerque plant. The shooting sent terrified employees scrambling, running to neighboring Kirtland Air Force Base or hiding behind locked doors and under desks, Schultz said. A woman on a stairway outside an Emcore building was the first to be shot in the attack that police say capped a bitter custody dispute between Reza and his ex-girlfriend, Adrienne Basciano, 49, over their 5-year-old twins. As he approached the building’s courtyard, Reza twice shot Sharon Cunningham, 47. She died later at University of New Mexico Hospital. Police said Basciano was shot several times and injured in an employee break area where she was sitting with another woman, 36-yearold Michele Turner. Schultz said Reza then killed Turner, shooting her multiple times

Board dubs pit bull ‘potentially Livingstone’s Blue Bear now a campus centerpiece dangerous’ BY SHAVONNE POTTS

A pit bull that was shot after charging an off-duty deputy has been deemed potentially dangerous by an appeals board. The board, made up of three Board of Health members, forms a quasi judicial panel. The panel heard from witnesses Tuesday who told of incidents involving the dog. The panel also received statements from law enforcement, animal control and neighbors. The dog, a reddish-brown and white pit bull named Red, was declared potentially dangerous by the Rowan County Animal Control after two incidents in early June. Kimberly Hamilton, the owner, did not attend the hearing; her attendance was not necessary. The first incident occurred on June 3 when the dog was running loose in the neighborhood in the vicinity of Keystone Drive. Red attacked a pomeranian named Angel, a memo said. The memo, signed by Animal Control Supervisor Clai Martin and addressed to Hamilton, states Kristy Barney was walking the family’s dog on a leash at the family’s Keystone Drive home when Red

In the early morning hours Friday, the Atwell One Stop, 5945 Hwy. 152 W., was broken into and more than $400 worth of cigarettes were stolen. According to Capt. John Sifford with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, Bonnie Lackey was working at the store when the power went out at her home and she had to leave. When she came back hours later, she realized the store had been broken into and called police. After reviewing surveillance footage of the store, Sifford said two white males, both wearing dark clothing and gloves, were the culprits. The burglars apparently entered the building through the front door after breaking out a glass window. Taken from the store were 30 packs of cigarettes, three packs of Black and Mild cigars, 10 individual White Owl cigars, as well as lighters and rolling papers. The total value of the stolen items is $409. The cigarette bandits weren’t the only hit Atwell One Stop has had in the past few days. On Monday, the store’s fuel tank, which was filled with oil, sprang a leak, leaking into a concrete containment area. The Atwell Fire Department responded and the hazmat team was called for additional absorbant pads to clean up the oil. Frank Greene, the public information officer for Atwell Fire Department, said the spill was small and easy to clean.

Food Lion to receive award from Department of Defense The Department of Defense has announced that Food Lion will receive the 2010 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, the highest recognition given by the U.S. Government to employers for their outstanding support of their employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve. Food Lion was selected as one of only 15 employers from across the nation to receive the 2010 Freedom Award. Almost 2,500 Guard and Reserve members or their family members from across the country nominated employers for exceptional support, which included providing full salary, continuation of benefits, care packages and even family support to employees fulfilling their military obligation. The Freedom Award will be presented to Food Lion during a formal ceremony Thursday, Sept. 23 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. The 2010 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award recipients include East Carolina University in Greenville and Dollar General Corporation in Goodlettsville, Tenn., among others “With 2010 marking the 15th anniversary of the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, it gives me great pleasure to announce

this year’s recipients,” said James G. Rebholz, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) National Chairman. “Food Lion and this year’s other recipients are among the top U.S. employers that provide outstanding support for Guard and Reserve employees. Their superior and unselfish initiatives to support their Guard and Reserve employees, make them indispensable partners in the defense efforts of this country. We are truly grateful for their unwavering support.” Food Lion, nominated by a store manager from New Bern, operates more than 1,300 supermarkets under the names of Food Lion, Bloom, Harveys or Reid’s. Food Lion leadership and employees send care packages, provide home repair, attend children’s events, send flowers to spouses and provide lawn care for deployed coworkers’ families. Food Lion, a past recipient of the Patriot Award, Above and Beyond Award and the ESGR Pro Patria Award, allows employees who are spouses of deployed service members to transfer to other stores to be closer to family during deployments. Food Lion has donated gift cards, phone cards, non-perishable food and a variety of other items to service members throughout the past year.


ing signs must be erected. Anytime the dog is out it must be on a leash and muzzled. After the second incident, Red was being held at the county animal shelter. Martin said Hamilton just got him back Friday. She has since built a pen that Martin inspected, but she did not drop her appeal. If Hamilton does not agree with the board’s decision, she can appeal in superior court, explained county attorney Jay Dees. Martin testified that in his 14 years no one has ever appealed his initial decision. “Most people comply or turn the dog over,” he said. The board was concerned that Hamilton may not have had adequate notice of the hearing. Martin said he notified Hamilton of the hearing last week. He also called her home this morning and talked to her husband, Tim. Martin said he even spoke to Hamilton, who said she would meet him Monday to sign a form saying she was dropping her appeal. Martin called her several times and waited after hours, but she never showed up. Rick Parker, acting as head of the panel, said based upon the evidence the panel determined notice was sufficiently provided. Martin said Hamilton even spoke with him by phone and said she wanted to withdraw her appeal. She indicated she would abide by the declaration saying the dog was dangerous. If Hamilton does not keep her dog muzzled on a leash and he attacks someone or another animal, then the dog would be removed from her home. The appeals board could ultimately decide to have the dog euthanized. “If the dog attacks again, we have grounds for immediate action,” said Health Director Leonard Wood. The panel agreed the dog would not immediately be euthanized. The panel, which included optometrist Phil Roles and veterinarian Luther Lyerly, agreed unanimously to declare the dog potentially dangerous, which means has inflicted severe injury on a domestic animal while not on the owner’s property and it has approached someone in a vicious or terrorizing manner. An attempt to reach Hamilton for comment was unsuccessful.


“viciously grabbed Angel actually ripping the dog out of its collar and began shaking it violently.” Kristy was just getting ready to enter her home. Angel was taken to Salisbury Animal Hospital with injuries that required the insertion of drainage tubes. The second incident occurred on June 11 when Red was running through the neighborhood. The pit bull charged at Richard Hadley, an off-duty sheriff’s deputy who was walking his dogs. Hadley said he yelled at the dog, calling him by name, but the dog charged at him. He shot the dog in the neck. The shot to the neck missed all vital organs, a statement from Hadley said. Neighbor Kay Johnson testified she witnessed Red kill a cat that she at first thought was one of hers. She said when she told Hamilton her dog should be locked up, Hamilton told her the cat should’ve been locked up. Johnson said Hamilton appeared to show no remorse for her dog’s actions. “There are numerous times the dog has been loose,” Johnson said visibly shaken by her testimony. Animal Control Officer David Yaninas also testified he’d been to the Hamilton home several times regarding a pit bull. He said Kimberly Hamilton refused to provide him with information. “She was very agitated,” he said. Yaninas called a police officer for back up. Hamilton was given a citation on the spot. Salisbury Police Officer Mark Shue said in a report that he has cited Hamilton. “Animal Control has requested our assistance several times based on Mrs. Hamilton’s combative and uncooperative attitude,” Shue said in a report. Hamilton was cited twice for not having her dog restrained on two separate occasions. She received those citations at $25 each. She was previously cited $100 for animal cruelty for not having a dog house. She’s also been fined $500 for noncompliance. Martin said later Hamilton has not paid any of her fines.

Post office celebrates scouting centennial

A retired Xerox executive and amateur pilot rarely turned down a request to fly a wounded soldier to a hospital appointment or a beach vacation, so it fit his altruistic nature to ferPITTS ry the brother of a terrorist bombing victim 300 miles to grieve with his parents. But the flight added a tragic epilogue to the Uganda terrorism bombings when the single-engine plane crashed at its destination in North Carolina on Monday, killing the pilot and injuring the brother and another occupant. Retired Xerox Corp. service manager Thomas F. Pitts, 65, of Wilmington, Del., often used his single-engine Cirrus SR20 for charity missions, including flying wounded soldiers to and from Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, said longtime friend Kevin Reilly. “He just thought it was his duty as a former Marine, and he had the skill set and he had the plane to get them there, and I just don’t know — outside of bad weather — that he ever turned anybody down,” Reilly said. So when Pitts was asked Monday to help recent University of Delaware graduate Kyle Henn get from Delaware

Man, woman and child killed in murder-suicide CLAYTON (AP) — Three people are dead in an apparent murder-suicide shooting in a North Carolina home. Johnston County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Tammy Amaon says that a 50-yearold man, a 42-year-old woman and a 15-year-old boy are dead after officers responded to a shooting Tuesday. Amaon says investigators believe the man killed the others and then killed himself, and that the shooting stemmed from domestic problems. She says authorities have responded to the house several times in the past few months. There were three other children in the house, but they were not harmed. The police are waiting to notify the families before releasing the names of the victims.

Judge cuts oversight of Duke lacrosse accuser

to his parents’ home in Raleigh, N.C., Pitts agreed, Reilly said. The Henn family was reeling from the death Sunday of Kyle’s older brother Nathan, a 25-year-old humanitarian worker among 76 people killed in a pair of terrorist bombings in Kampala, Uganda. Pitts routinely made such flights, at no charge. “He was trying to alleviate this brother having to book a commercial flight. He thought he could fly him to the family quicker,” Reilly said. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating Monday’s crash, which occurred during a landing attempt at Horace Williams Airport in Chapel Hill. Randy Young, a spokesman for the University of North Carolina Department of Public Safety, told WRAL-TV it appeared the plane overshot the runway. Aerial views from television news helicopters showed the wreckage at the base of some trees along the runway. Kyle Henn, 22, was in fair condition Tuesday at the North Carolina Medical Center in Chapel Hill. Co-pilot James Donahue was in critical condition, a hospital spokesman said. The Henn family released a statement Tuesday, saying, “We are so grateful to both of the pilots for everything they did on our behalf and are both touched and broken by the events. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families.”

DURHAM (AP) — A North Carolina judge has eased the electronic monitoring of a woman who once falsely accused Duke University lacrosse players of rape and is now charged with arson and other crimes. Multiple media reports said 31-year-old Crystal Mangum was downgraded Monday from 24-hour house arrest to electronic monitoring and a curfew. Superior Court Judge Michael Morgan says Mangum should move into her parents’ home to care for her ill mother. Mangum’s father died recently.

Dog to be euthanized after killing rabid fox A Gold Hill woman’s dog was to be euthanized after killing a rabid fox this week, Rowan County Animal Control said. The incident marks Rowan County’s ninth rabies case of the year. Angela Fesperman, of Old U.S. 80, reported that her dog, a male lab mix named Jake, had killed a baby fox. The dog was not current on its rabies shots and was placed in quarantine at the Rowan County Animal Shelter while the fox was tested for rabies. Animal Control learned Tuesday the fox had tested positive for rabies. The dog was to be euthanized at the owner’s request, Animal Control said. This marks the third rabies case involving a fox this year, according to Animal Control. Four of the cases involved raccoons and two involved skunks.










This year is the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America and more than 30 post offices across the country have commemorated this with a Special Commemorative Postmark. These postmarks are a collectable as they are hand canceled and they are used for one day only. Back in April, artist David Smith met with Postmaster Carolyn Steelman at the Turnersburg post office and jointly they planned this postmark. Knowing that during the annual Boy Scout Jamboree in Fort AP Hill, Va., the United States Postal Service had plans to release a postage stamp commemorating Scouting on July 27. Steelman decided that July 30 would be enough time to have the new Scout stamps available for use with this commemorative postmark. The artwork was submitted and approved in early May.

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s capital city is gearing up for expanded use of plug-in electric cars by making it easier for homeowners to get a permit for rechargers. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Tuesday the city has created a streamlined procedure that will take just one hour. Recharging an electric car puts a heavy demand on a home’s electrical wiring and could require upgrades for a 220-volt outlet, the kind used by electric dryers and other heavy-duty appliances.

FORT BRAGG (AP) — A fire that destroyed a North Carolina military band’s building started in the electrical system. Army officials did not specify Tuesday what caused the June 2 fire at the 82nd Airborne Division’s All-American Band building at Fort Bragg. The post’s fire department is still investigating. Officials say a more detailed report is expected in about a month. The fire started less than an hour after the band left rehearsal for the annual July Fourth concert. The 70-yearold building held musical instruments and other band equipment. No one was hurt, but firefighters couldn’t save anything inside. The band performed a modified concert at Fort Bragg’s July Fourth celebration using borrowed instruments and sheet music.

3 towns celebrate watermelons RALEIGH (AP) — Many small towns in North Carolina have festivals to celebrate something. In three of them, they celebrate watermelons. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Tuesday that watermelons are the focus of festivals in Fair Bluff, Murfreesboro and Winterville in the coming weeks. Those who turn out can enjoy contests, watermelon queen pageants, rind-carvings, and of course, watermelon.

Military: 2 NC-based Marines killed in Afghanistan CAMP LEJEUNE (AP) — Military officials say two North Carolina-based Marine lance corporals have been killed in Afghanistan, and that one of the deaths is under investigation. The Department of Defense announced on Tuesday that 20year-old Lance Cpl. Tyler A. Roads of Burney, Calif., died July 10 in Helmand province. A statement from the military said Roads’ death is being investigated. Officials also said 21-yearold Lance Cpl. Daniel G. Raney of Pleasant View, Tenn., died on July 9 in Helmand province. Both men were assigned to II Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune.

Jonathon Perkins, Animal cruelty investigator with the cumberland county sheriffs department, holds onto red, a pit bull puppy that was burned by it's owner, early Monday, July 12, 2010. tony Brian Knolle, 24, faces a charge of felony animal cruelty after his wife said he tried to set on fire their pit bull because he was tired of caring for the puppy, according to authorities.

Man charged with trying to set pit bull on fire FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — A North Carolina man faces a charge of felony animal cruelty after his wife said he tried to set on fire their pit bull because he was tired of caring for the puppy, according to authorities. Multiple media outlets reported the 9-week-old pit bull named Red was being treated at the Cumberland County Animal Shelter. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Debbie Tanna said a woman flagged down a deputy Monday morning and said her husband had tried to set the dog on fire after the couple had argued. Tony Brian Knolle, 24, who is charged with felony animal cruelty, was to appear in court Tuesday afternoon. Sheriff’s Detective Jonathan Perkins said it was unclear what was used to set fire to the dog because investigators found no evidence of flammable liquid. Red suffered singed fur, blisters and scrapes, along with gashes along his left hip and leg, authorities said. “It tears me up. I hate to see any animal like this,” Perkins said.

Investigators say Knolle’s wife, Miacarla Knolle, told them that her husband tried to set the dog on fire because he was tired of caring for the animal. He said Red would receive medical treatment and would be held in protective custody at the shelter “He’s going to be fed. He’s going to be housed. There’s no chance he’s going to be put down or anything,” Perkins said, holding the trembling dog. Authorities said they will find a family to adopt the dog once it is no longer is considered evidence in the criminal case. Knolle is not subject to tougher penalties for animal cruelty that the Legislature recently passed. Those laws have yet to take effect Dec. 1. Gov. Beverly Perdue signed Susie’s Law last month in honor of a Greensboro dog whose owner was placed on probation after burning, beating and leaving the 8-week-old pet to die. It wasn’t immediately clear if Knolle had an attorney.


Woman accused of trying to sell baby RALEIGH (AP) — A North Carolina woman has been accused of trying to sell her 2-month-old baby. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that 22year-old Sharri Chellerina Butler was being held in jail Monday after she was accused of contributing to the delinquency of a child. Arrest warrants accuse Butler of trying to abandon or sell the baby June 8. Police records don’t indicate whether the child is a boy or girl. Police say a Garner woman called police on June 9 saying someone had left a voice message offering a baby for sale. Police spokesman Jim Sughrue

says detectives traced the call to Butler. The Raleigh woman told a Wake County magistrate the child’s father did not want the infant. She didn’t say Monday how much money she wanted for the child. It was unclear if Butler had an attorney.

CHARLOTTE (AP) — A University of North Carolina school is giving students the option of renting rather than buying textbooks in the fall semester. UNC Charlotte is offering textbook rental with Barnes & Noble College Booksellers. The school says students will be able to rent textbooks for 45 percent of the cost of purchasing them. Students may highlight or mark the rented books, which must be returned within 10 days of the last day of finals, either in person or via mail. They may convert their rental to a purchase during the first two weeks of classes.

Four years after opening, Dell announced it would close the plant, putting 900 people out of work. Most state incentives were never paid, and Dell refunded local governments their $26 million in upfront payments.

Good food, good health

katie scarvey/SALISBURY POST

Asthma camp participants and their parents try a healthy snack option — hummus and crudité — during a cooking demonstration at Dan Nicholas Park.

Kids and parents at Second Wind Asthma Camp learn that healthy food can taste good BY KATIE SCARVEY

ood is something that pediatrician Christopher Magryta talks about every day to his patients. He wants them to understand that the most important thing they can do for their health has nothing to do with drugs. It has to do with the food that they consume. But he realizes, of course, that if parents aren’t on board, then children probably won’t be able to change their eating habits, and the message will be lost. So this year, at the Second Wind Asthma Camp Magryta led, for the sixth year, parents were invited to a healthy cooking demonstration, so that they could be convinced not only of the importance of good, fresh food but shown that it really does taste good. “We’re trying to get them interested in whole foods and teach them how to avoid fast foods,” said Magryta, who sees most of the campers as patients at Salisbury Pediatric Associates. Leading the demonstration were Ed Adams and Melissa Gress. Adams, who has a background as a chef, is head of Morrison’s Healthcare Food Services, which serves the Novant Health system, including Rowan Regional Medical Center. Gress is a nutritionist with Morrison’s. The demonstration took place at lunchtime, which meant that campers and their parents got to eat the lunch that Adams and Gress prepared for them. “It’s neat to show them food that tastes really good but is healthy to eat,” Adams said. The pair did a demonstration at last year’s asthma camp. This year, however, parents were also invited. Gress emphasized the importance of creating “taste memories” for children — giving children positive memories that are centered around healthy food in order to build a lifetime of good habits. Adams and Gress began by demonstrating how to make pico de gallo, with fresh tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and cilantro, which Adams called an “Extremely powerful herb. “Take the tomato, core it, squeeze the seeds out and dice it

Gress explained the nutritional benefits. “Tomatoes are very good for us,” she said, explaining about lycopene and antioxidants. “Food is the best medicine there is,” she said. Campers and parents sampled pico de gallo — a spicy version with jalapeno and one without — on pieces of pita. Then, it was time for hummus. Students lined up to try the chickpea-based dip with cut-up fresh vegetables — which Gress explained were called crudités. The hummus was definitely a hit. Exclamations of “This is good!” could be heard all over the shelter, from both campers and their parents. Adams was happy to see people coming through the line for seconds. “I love it!” he said. Jaydon Brown, 11, said he liked both the regular hummus and the roasted red pepper version. For the main course, there were black bean burgers and turkey burgers. Shelia Chambers, who was there with her son, David, said that she would probably try the turkey burgers at home. Dessert was simple and satisfying: watermelon. In the morning, Gress headed up a session on healthy snacks, let-

Asthma camp is designed for young children with chronic asthma, allowing them to play and learn without fear of their disease, Magryta says. “Asthma camp dedicates the learning experience to all aspects of healthy living that help asthma including nutrition, stress reduction, exercise and others,” he said. “Understanding the disease and how to help oneself is the key to health and life for these children. We leave them empowered to live.”

tomato tasting at the Farmers Market.

For The Salisbury Post

On Saturday, the Master Gardener volunteers held a tomato tasting of cherry tomatoes at the Salisbury Farmers Market. Approximately 100 people participated, sampling five varieties of tomatoes commonly called cherry or salad tomatoes. Many people grow cherry tomatoes in pots on their patio or tucked into their landscape for a bite size burst of flavor, a perfect healthy snack. You may think all cherry tomatoes are the same, but there are many flavors, colors and shapes and local farmers are growing several different varieties. In the taste test, the favorite this year was test variety (E), a round, yellow tomato called sweet gold yellow hybrid. A close second was (B), named chiquita pink grape. For those that have not had grape tomatoes, they are shaped more like a pear than the typical round ball cherry tomato. Mr. Smarty, a red grape tomato variety and under the test label (A), was next in the voting. Closely following Mr. Smarty was the smooth, round, red Mount Belle (D), followed by (C), a dark, purplish-pink skinned tomato called chocolate cherry. All of the voting was very close, which shows everyone’s taste buds and preferences are different. Special thanks to Eagle and Son Produce Farm, David Cor-

rell, Red Barn Market and Duard Cress for donating the tomatoes. All varieties tested are available at the market so if you didn’t get to participate, go buy some at the market this morning and taste them for yourself. Toi Degree will demonstrate cooking with fresh corn on July 24. Sherry Walker is a Master Gardener volunteer.

I would be fine if she found an unpaid internship because I know the job market is not great for certain fields.

Emma Martin is one of the most popular vendors at the Salisbury Farmers Market. Her baked goods have become legendary and are much in demand. Unless you arrive at the market early you will miss out on the chocolate zucchini bread or the peach and apple fried pies prepared the morning of the market. Her sour dough bread is also a big hit with the market patrons. I asked Emma how she became interested in baking. She told me that due to health problems in 1989 she began researching healthy eating. At that time she began making bread from wheat that she would grind herself. She is still grinding her own wheat. Her product line has expanded to include homemade granola, assorted pies, sweet breads, cookies and many more interesting and delicious selections. Emma will take special orders and she provides several local restaurants and coffee shops with items such as dinner rolls and sweet breads.

Countering summer slide Marriage and the law s this summer’s edition of SalisburyRowan Reads kicks off today at the library, here’s yet one more reason to encourage children and their parents to participate: It can help narrow the achievement gap that separates successful students from struggling classmates. Although the link between reading proficiency and academic success is well established, what’s less widely recognized is the role that summer break plays in the development of achievement disparities. In fact, learning loss, also known as “summer setback” or “summer slide,” is not simply a short-term phenomenon, education experts now believe, but adds up to a cumulative cause that has a significant bearing on longterm achievement gaps. In a 2003 report, researchers found that on average, while middle-income children showed small gains in reading over the summer, lower-income children, especially blacks, showed significant loss in reading skills. When math and reading scores were combined, lower-income students had a loss of nearly three months of learning each year, compared to an average of one month for middle-income kids. Multiply that loss over a few summers, especially during a youngster’s elementary and middle-school years, and the summer slide becomes a formidable avalanche burying students deeper and deeper under stunted reading skills and failing grades. It isn’t hard to see why the summer setback is more pronounced among lower income children. They’re less likely to have ready access to activities such as travel, educational camps, visits to museums — and, of course, books, books and more books. Parents play a critical role in stopping the summer slide in younger children. The Salisbury-Rowan Reads program, now in its second year, was conceived to bring children, parents and other adults together with books to stress the importance of year-round reading in a festive atmosphere. Of course, the Rowan Public Library is no newcomer to the importance of summer reading. It offers ongoing summer book and story programs that target age groups from pre-k to high schoolers. The Salisbury-Rowan Reads program, which begins at 5 p.m. today at the library’s West Fisher Street headquarters, takes the message to the community level through family-oriented events that distribute free books and feature local officials reading aloud to crowds of youngsters. No single program can bridge the achievement gap, which has proven one of education’s more stubborn problems. But Salisbury-Rowan Reads is a great example of how we can transform the summer setback into a season of reading gains rather than learning losses.


Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

“Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life.” — Mortimer J. Adler

Moderately confused

ALEIGH — Not so long ago, state legislators had years in which they met for eight months while accomplishing very little other than making sure that the state budget was balanced for another year. This latest even-year short session of the North Carolina General Assembly, in which they met three months, won’t be reSCOTT MOONEYHAM membered that way. Legislators bit off big chunks of substantial policy change in 2010. Some weren’t completed until the wee hours Saturday morning, as the General Assembly adjourned for the year after a grueling final day in which lawmakers met for more than 20 hours. The Democrats who control the legislature were motivated by an uncertain political landscape that threatens their majorities in the House and Senate. Sometimes that kind of threat can be a recipe for a do-nothing legislative session. It had a different effect this year. Legislators hit the ground running in their budget deliberations. They ultimately approved a $19 billion state spending plan, the total rising to $20.6 billion when accounting for federal stimulus money. The bill’s passage marked the first time since 2003 that legislators had a budget in place by the July 1 start of the new fiscal year. In a second straight year of depressed tax collections, the budget provided no salary increases for state employees. Those workers, though, seemed happy to avoid the furloughs and layoffs seen in other states. The biggest critics of the spending plan were home health businesses. They were chagrined with a decision to significantly scale back a Medicaid program for in-home care services for the poor. Legislative Republicans predicted doom because the plan made few provisions for next year, when most or all that extra federal help to the states will be gone. Besides the budget, state lawmakers passed another round of government ethics reform, made another attempt at banning video poker, approved a batch of tax breaks and incentive measures designed to lure new industry to the state, and decided to require DNA samples of those arrested for some crimes. They also passed legislation that puts tougher rules on local alcohol boards, broadens how money collected from a service fee on telephone bills can be spent, and subjects those who violate domestic violence orders to tougher criminal penalties. As always, some major legislation died on the vine. Among the victims: a proposed overhaul of how negligence lawsuits are decided, a $450 million borrowing plan with projects that included new engineering facilities at N.C. State University, a proposal to soften the state’s ban on hardened structures along beaches, and a measure to discourage the operation of abusive puppy mills. For three months, legislators were as busy as the beavers they decided shouldn’t be moved from Greensboro (yet another last-day piece of legislation considered). Now, they’ll get busy with the business of trying to keep or win power. How the decisions they made over the last three month play into that business is anyone’s guess.

Federal ruling contradicts previous decisions federal judge in Boston has ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) passed by Congress (427 members voted in favor) and signed into law by President Clinton in 1996 cannot take precedence over a Massachusetts law allowing samesex marriage. The ruling again raises serious questions about the origin and purpose of law. But before we get to that larger question, the “logic” of Judge Joseph L. Tauro’s ruling should first be examined. Judge Tauro’s decision flies in the face of what the federal government has CAL claimed and is THOMAS claiming in at least two other significant cases. In 1973, the Supreme Court struck down all state laws restricting a woman’s right to have an abortion. In its lawsuit against Arizona’s new immigration law, the Department of Justice claims federal law (which the feds are not enforcing) trumps state law. So let’s see: state laws are fine when they promote the interests of the ruling liberal and cultural elites, but they are to be ignored, or overturned, when they do not promote the objectives of the ruling liberal and cultural elites. Is that it? How can the federal government have it both ways? A New York Times editorial says of DOMA “There is no rational basis for discriminating against same-sex couples.” Really? Has the newspaper


forgotten the federal government’s “discrimination” against Utah when it forbade the territory from entering the Union until it outlawed polygamy? In 1878, the Supreme Court declared in Reynolds v. United States that polygamy was not protected by the Constitution. If the federal government could reject polygamy then as a means of promoting the general welfare, why can’t it block attempts to redefine marriage now? If marriage is re-defined by courts, what is to stop anyone from declaring a “right” to any relationship they wish to enter and demanding “equal protection” under the Constitution? Now to the larger question of law, which is also being redefined. During her confirmation hearings, Elena Kagan said she loved the law. Too bad no one asked her which law she loves and what is law’s purpose? Law is meant to conform humans to a standard that preserves the cultural and moral order. The purpose of government is to “secure” unalienable pre-existing rights about which Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence (a document Kagan dismissed as irrelevant to the Constitution, though it is the Constitution’s moral and philosophical foundation). Government is not supposed to create new rights like national health care, or same-sex marriage. The Times editorial dismisses the overwhelming approval for DOMA as a “wedge issue” during an election year. In fact, it reflected the principled position not only of a vast majority of members of Con-

LETTERS Brace yourself for tax hikes Regarding John Burke’s July 5 letter “Taxes are price we pay as citizens”: It isn’t unusual for one liberal to refer to another liberal in making his point. How could anyone disagree with Leonard Pitts, the Miami Herald’s token liberal? I, on the other hand, do not depend on the opinion of someone else, liberal or conservative. The thoughts I write come from me and my experience. Now, about taxes: America, until Feb. 25, 1913, and the passing of the 16th Amendment to the Constitution, was free of government taxation as we know it today. So for more than 137 years, our country flourished. Since that regrettable amendment, the government has found ways to tax everything possible. If it moves, tax it; if it doesn't move, subsidize it or give someone a grant to get it moving, because they need the money. Last year’s budget will not do, because, you see, the government can never do with less, but the taxpayer can al-

gress, but also the position of the public, which has almost universally rejected attempts to legalize same-sex marriage. In 2004, 11 states had ballot measures preserving marriage as between opposite sex couples. All passed. In 2008, three states had gay marriage ballot initiatives. Two passed. In California, a measure to overturn the State Supreme Court’s earlier 4-3 decision upholding the constitutionality of a legislative ban on same-sex marriage was approved by 400,000 votes, or 52 percent of those voting. Marriage re-definers demand acceptance for their position that morality, as well as right and wrong, are to be determined by polls. If polls show the public disapproving of behavior the elites favor, the elites ignore majority opinion and seek to shove it down our throats anyway, because, you see, only they can be right. The rest of us have the equivalent standing of 1950s segregationists. Anyone arguing for tradition is branded a bigot, a label that is supposed to end all discussion, while the labeled one is exhausted trying to prove a negative. Judge Tauro’s ruling will likely be overturned on appeal, but that won’t stop the marriage re-definers. In a morally exhausted society, they just might succeed.

ways do with less. Since you appreciate taxes so much, I have news for you — they’re going up. In about six months, the largest tax hikes in the history of America will take place. On Jan. 1, the 2001 and 2003 tax relief measures will expire. Your personal income taxes will rise. The 10 percent bracket rises to 15 percent, the 25 percent bracket to 28 percent, the 28 percent bracket to 31 percent, the 33 percent bracket to 36 percent, and the 35 percent bracket to 39.6 percent. The marriage penalty will return. The child tax credit will be cut in half, from $1,000 to $500 per child. ... And we haven’t even talked about Obama’s health care expense. I could go on and on about the coming disaster; but I feel almost certain 2011 and 2012 will prove much worse economically for our

country. I am trying to wake people up and vote the current politicians out and see if we can’t do better. Are Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Rangel and Frank the best we can do? — Richard Roberts Kannapolis

BP to begin slowly choking off oil flow; residents wait anxiously NEW ORLEANS (AP) — In a potentially pivotal moment in the Gulf crisis, BP planned to begin closing valves Tuesday in a slow and methodical process that could finally choke off the geyser of crude at the bottom of the sea after three gloomy months and up to 180 million gallons spilled. A new, tighter-fitting cap was lowered over the blownout well Monday night. The next phase was to shut the openings in the 75-ton metal stack of pipes and valves gradually, one at a time, while watching pressure gauges to see if the cap would hold or any new leaks erupted. The operation was expected to begin late Tuesday, and officials said it could last anywhere from six to 48 hours. BP and the government’s point man on the crisis — the biggest offshore oil spill in U.S. history and one of the nation’s worst environmental disasters — stressed there were no guarantees, and they urged patience from Gulf residents. “They ought to be interested and concerned, but if they hold their breath, they’ll run out of oxygen,” retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen told The Associated Press.

Senate poised to send bank bill to Obama WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Tuesday secured the 60 votes he needs in the Senate to pass a sweeping overhaul of financial regulations, all but ensuring that he soon will sign into law one of the top initiatives of his presidency. With the votes in hand to overcome Republican delaying tactics, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday he hoped for final passage on Thursday. The House already has passed the bill. “This reform is good for families, it is good for businesses, it’s good for the entire economy,” Obama said as he prodded the Senate to act quickly. Passage would represent a signature achievement for the president just four months af-

ter he signed massive health care legislation into law. The final vote comes amid lingering public resentment of Wall Street, but the legislation’s symbolic and political impact is likely to be diminished by anxiety across the country over jobs and the economy. Reid as much as acknowledged that political reality Tuesday, blaming “greed on Wall Street” for the country’s economic troubles.

Turncoat Afghan soldier kills 3 British troopers, wounds 4 KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — An Afghan soldier killed three British service members with gunfire and a rocket-propelled grenade in the dead of night, a betrayal that highlights the difficulties in rapidly building up Afghan security forces so that foreign troops can go home. The soldier fled after carrying out the attack in southern Afghanistan early Tuesday, leaving his motive unclear. But the Taliban claimed that he was a militant sympathizer who was taken in by insurgents after the assault — one which could further weaken support in Britain for an unpopular that has now taken the lives of 317 Britons. In London, Prime Minister David Cameron condemned the killings as “appalling” but insisted the incident should not change NATO’s strategy of working alongside the Afghan army. Four other British service members were wounded in the attack on a base in Nahr-iSaraj district of Helmand province that is home to members of the 1st Battalion Royal Gurkha Rifles. It was the second time in eight months that an Afghan turned against British troops partnering with local security forces. In November, an Afghan policeman killed five British soldiers at a checkpoint in Helmand. Afghan police in the past have also attacked American soldiers and their own police stations, though such intentional attacks are rare.

Federal budget deficit tops $1 trillion WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal deficit has topped $1 trillion with three months still to go in the budget year, showing the lasting impact of the recession on the government’s finances. In its monthly budget report, the Treasury Department said Tuesday that through the first nine months of this budget year, the deficit totals $1 trillion. That’s down 7.6 percent from the $1.09 trillion deficit run up during the same period a year ago. Worries about the size of the deficit have created political problems for the Obama administration. Congressional Republicans and moderate Democrats have blocked more spending on job creation and other efforts. Republicans also have held up legislation to extend unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless because of its effect on the deficit. Another failed effort would have provided cash-starved states with money to help avoid layoff of public employees and finance the Medicaid program for the poor and disabled. President Barack Obama also encountered resistance to further stimulus spending at a meeting of the Group of 20 major industrial nations last month in Toronto.

Iranian scientist claims he was kidnapped by U.S. WASHINGTON (AP) — An Iranian scientist sought refuge in the Pakistani Embassy compound and asked to go home, an apparent defection gone wrong that could embarrass the U.S. and its efforts to gather intelligence on Tehran’s suspected nuclear weapons program. Iran — and at one point, scientist Shahram Amiri — claimed the CIA had kidnapped him; the U.S. said Tuesday that nothing of the sort happened. Amiri disappeared while on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in June 2009, surfacing in videos but otherwise out of sight until

the latest bizarre twist in the case. “Mr. Amiri has been in the United States of his own free will and he is free to go,” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said. It was the first time the Obama administration publicly acknowledged Amiri was in the U.S. Reliable and timely information about Iran’s nuclear program is of enormous importance to the Obama administration and other countries seeking to stop the Islamic republic from getting the bomb. Beyond using diplomatic means to try to stop Iran, the U.S. and Israel have not ruled out using military force. Iran maintains that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.

Mob bosses arrested in Italy, revealing new ’ndrangeta structure MILAN (AP) — Anti-mafia prosecutors claimed a major victory over the powerful and growing ’ndrangheta crime syndicate, infiltrating intimate weddings, baptisms and other events to gather information that led to the arrests Tuesday of 305 people, including top bosses, and the seizure of more than 60 million euros ($76 million) in cash and property. One of the most significant revelations to emerge from the investigation was that the Calabrian mob had a tight hierarchal structure like that of the Sicilian Mafia, and wasn’t just an association of clans as previously believed. While expanding its economic reach into the wealthy Lombard region in northern Italy, the ’ndrangheta (en-DRAN-geh-tah) is also concentrating its power in its native Calabria, exerting tight control over all strategic decision-making, anti-mafia prosecutors said. The operation began before dawn with the 4 a.m. arrest of Domenico Oppedisano, the crime group’s top boss, in the small coastal town of Rosarno in Calabria. But the investigation owed its success to investigators’ ability to infiltrate events like

the 2009 wedding of the children of two crime bosses in Calabria, attended by thousands of well-wishers, where Oppedisano was named to his post, said Calabrian anti-mafia prosecutor Giuseppe Pignatone. When Oppedisano was formally elevated some two weeks later, on Sept. 2, the feast of Madonna Polsi, undercover agents got video of the crime syndicate’s major bosses all being confirmed in their new positions in the structure, he said.

Blagojevich insider says he was worried about fundraising CHICAGO (AP) — A lobbyist who for years was one of Rod Blagojevich’s closest advisers testified Tuesday that he became so concerned about the intensifying pressure the Illinois governor was placing on potential campaign contributors that he contacted the FBI and began cooperating in the government’s investigation. “I was increasingly alarmed about the level of aggressiveness the fundraising had taken on,” John Wyma said at Blagojevich’s federal corruption trial. Wyma testified about fundraising meetings in fall 2008 at which he said Blagojevich outlined plans to pressure a hospital administrator and road-building executive for thousands of dollars in campaign money while they had business pending before the governor’s administration. At the time, he had already received a federal subpoena in connection with his lobbying work on behalf of a group of hospitals regulated by the state. He said the intensity of the fundraising meetings prompted him to phone the FBI immediately. “I brought it as quickly as I could to the attention of the appropriate people,” said Wyma, who was chief of staff in Blagojevich’s office when he was a member of the U.S. House and later raised funds for his campaigns for governor.

Woman hits Texas lotto jackpot for the fourth time BISHOP, Texas (AP) — The odds that Joan Ginther would hit four Texas Lottery jackpots for a combined nearly $21 million are astronomical. Mathematicians say the chances are as slim as 1 in 18 septillion — that’s 18 and 24 zeros. Just as unlikely? Getting to know one of the luckiest women in the world. “She wants her privacy,” friend Cris Carmona said. On a $50 scratch-off ticket bought in this rural farming community, Ginther won $10 million last month in her biggest windfall yet. But it was the fourth winning ticket in Texas for the 63-year-old former college professor since 1993, when Ginther split an $11 million jackpot and became the most famous native in Bishop history. But she’s a celebrity who few in this town of 3,300 people can say much about.

Police: Teen stripper caught at Detroit club DETROIT (AP) — Police say an underage girl found dancing at a Detroit strip bar earlier this year was caught this week dancing at another topless club in Detroit. Police spokesman John Roach says officers went to Club Onyx on Monday night after getting a tip that an underage girl was dancing. Roach says the 15-year-old they found was the same girl who at age 14 was performing at All Stars Lounge in April. Roach says police arrested a club manager. No charges had been brought as of Tuesday evening. Messages seeking comment were left at phone listings for the club. The arrest came on the same day that All Stars Lounge was padlocked following an order from a judge. That club is to remain closed for a year. A lawyer for All Stars Lounge has said he’s appealing.

Alleged ’Barefoot Bandit’ returns to the U.S. MIAMI (AP) — The American teenager who police call the “Barefoot Bandit” was extradited back to the United States on Tuesday, just hours after he pleaded guilty to a minor offense in the Bahamas. Law enforcement officials escorted Colton Harris-Moore on a commercial flight to Miami to face prosecution for a two-year string of break-ins and plane thefts across the United States. The FBI took him off the plane and put him into a waiting car. Officials said the 19-yearold convict was taken to a federal jail in Miami, where he is scheduled to have an initial court appearance Wednesday. It’s likely he will eventually be taken to Seattle, where he was indicted. Earlier Tuesday, Harris-Moore pleaded guilty in the Bahamas to illegally entering the country. He had been arrested in the island country Sunday following a high-speed boat chase. The charge stemming from his alleged crash of a stolen plane on Great Abaco Island carried a $300 fine. His lawyer, Monique Gomez, said the U.S. Embassy would pay it. Gomez said Harris-Moore wanted to go home. The shackled teen smiled after the judge read the sentence. Bahamian police had earlier said that he would face other charges including illegal weapons possession related to a string of breakins and thefts during his weeklong hideout in the country. Harris-Moore wore white sneakers without laces and kept his head down as armed officers escorted him to the courthouse. A police SWAT team stood by as authorities put up street barricades ahead of the hearing for the celebrity suspect. Authorities say he earned the “Barefoot Bandit” nickname by committing some crimes while shoeless, and in February he allegedly drew chalk-outline feet all over the floor of a grocery store during a burglary in Washington’s San Juan Islands. Harris-Moore is suspected in about 70 property crimes across eight states and British Columbia, many of them in the bucolic islands of Washington state. He is accused of stealing a plane from an Indiana airport to fly to the Bahamas. His mother, Pam Kohler, seemed relieved. “I’m really tired,” Kohler said from her home on Camano Island, Wash. “Yes, I look forward to seeing him.” Asked what she planned to say to her son when she saw him, she said angrily, “What kind of question is that?” and hung up the phone. His arrest came as a relief to people across rural Camano Island, Wash., where authorities say he learned to dodge police. “There’s a lot of relief throughout the

community,” said real estate agent Mark Williams. “I think the man’s luck just wore out. You run through the woods long enough, you’re going to trip over a log.” Residents of the island also lashed out at the teen’s mother this week, saying her decision to hire a well-known Seattle lawyer suggests she’s trying to profit from a crime spree that police say took her son from the cedar trees in Washington to the bright beaches of the Bahamas. “Of course she wants the money. She doesn’t work,” said Joshua Flickner, whose family owns an island grocery store. “What makes me more angry than the fact that she’s trying to profit off this is that there’s any profit to be had.” The mother’s attorney downplayed any profit motive, saying Kohler contacted him for advice after being inundated by requests from news reporters as well as inquiries about book and movie deals. “Her feelings are relief and exhaustion,” O. Yale Lewis said. “Obviously, there is enormous interest in this story, and she wants to be careful about how to proceed. But her first concern has been to make sure her son is safe. “And I think she hasn’t given much thought beyond that,” he said. Harris-Moore told police in the Bahamas that he came to the country, located off the Florida coast, because it has so many islands, airports and docks, according to an officer who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case. The teenager claimed that he told islanders he was trying to get to Cuba so he could throw police off his trail, but he intended to make his way to the Turks and Caicos Islands southeast of the Bahamas, the officer said. The suspect learned from the Internet that the British territory has a small police force and no marine defense force, according to the officer. Harris-Moore spent Monday being questioned by investigators. Police Commissioner Ellison Greenslade described him as eloquent, calm, cooperative and “obviously a very intelligent young man,” but declined to say whether he made any confession. Kohler’s older sister, Sandra Puttmann, of Arlington, was the first relative to hear from Harris-Moore after his arrest Sunday. She said he was “holding up” but scared now that he’s in custody for the first time since he walked away from a halfway house south of Seattle. Puttmann angrily criticized news stories about her nephew, saying reporters typically gloss over his difficult upbringing. She said police routinely ac-

Colton Harris-Moore, the teenage fugitive police have dubbed the ‘Barefoot Bandit,’ is escorted shackled and handcuffed by Bahamian authorities to the court building in Nassau on Tuesday. Harris-Moore, pleaded guilty to a minor offense in the Bahamas and is expected to be deported soon to the U.S. to face prosecution. cused him of stealing even when he hadn’t and school officials didn’t give him a chance — something police and school officials have adamantly denied. Harris-Moore told a psychologist in 2008 that his mother was abusive when she’d been drinking, according to a court document cited Monday by The Herald newspaper of Everett. His father left when he was a toddler, and his stepfather died when he was 7, Kohler has said. He is accused of crimes in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa. Emily Langlie, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle, said Tuesday she expected the U.S. Marshals Service would fly Harris-Moore from Miami to Seattle, where he faces a federal complaint of interstate transportation of stolen property, alleging that he took a plane from Idaho and crashed it in Washington. “Exactly when he would arrive here is a moving target as far as I know,” she said.

3 Philly officers face drug, corruption charges from a supplier on credit, authorities said. With the supplier’s courier looking on, the officers appeared to arrest Ortiz, who was allegedly in on the scheme, and seize the drugs, Gibson said. Ortiz paid those two officers $6,000 for their help and an unidentified amount to Snyder’s wife, Christal Snyder, the indictment said. The group then tried to sell the heroin through the undercover agent, prosecutors say. According to the indictment, Christal Snyder served as a conduit, passing information by phone and text between the officers and the alleged dealers, Ortiz and codefendant Zachary Young. The FBI was still looking Tuesday for the alleged supplier, 39-year-old Miguel Santiago of Philadelphia, on drug charges. The intended victim of the alleged robbery, Santiago is the lone defendant not charged with conspiracy. The officers were assigned to police districts in North Philadelphia and had between four and nine years on the force. “We do not employ criminals. That’s what they are. That’s how they’ll be treated,” Mayor Michael Nutter said at a news conference.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Three Philadelphia police officers plotted with drug dealers and staged a traffic stop and drug seizure in a scheme to steal $15,000 worth of heroin from a supplier and sell the drug, federal authorities charged. Officers Mark Williams, James Venziale and Robert Snyder were named in a 14count indictment announced Tuesday, along with Snyder’s wife and three suspected drug dealers. The plan went awry when the officers tried to sell the 300 grams of heroin through an undercover federal agent, Assistant U.S. Attorney Virginia Gibson said. The police officers and two alleged drug dealers were arrested this week, along with Snyder’s wife Christal. All but the wife were being held pending detention hearings later this week, prosecutors said. It was not immediately clear if the officers had lawyers. Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said he would quickly begin the process of terminating them. “Those three are history,” Ramsey said. In May, Williams and Venziale staged a traffic stop of co-defendant Angel Ortiz after Ortiz obtained heroin

Area briefs Tuesday night’s American Legion playoff games postponed/2B

ANAHEIM, Calif. — One key swing by Brian National 3 McCann pulled National American 1 the League out of the All-Star shadows. McCann’s three-run double in the seventh inning provided the NL all the offense it needed to capture its first Midsummer Classic since 1996 with a 3-1 victory Tuesday. In a year of dominant pitching, young starters David Price and Ubaldo Jimenez set the tone — and got even more help from the tricky shadows. Nearly the entire field at Angel Stadium was bathed in odd patterns of sunlight for a twilight

first pitch. Even that bouncing Rally Monkey on the big screen in a red AL jersey couldn’t change things this time. The National League earns home-field advantage in this year’s World Series. The AL didn’t go down without some ninth-inning drama, started by David Ortiz’s leadoff single. But Jonathan Broxton sealed it, helped by an alert play from right fielder Marlon Byrd and shaky baserunning by Big Papi. Ortiz was on first with one out when John Buck hit a blooper that Byrd, a former Piedmont Boll Weevil, scooped up and threw to second for a forceout on the slowmoving Boston designated hitter.

“A pitch came inside and broke a bone in my finger,” Perrine said. “It was extremely disappointing.” Perrine is a 10-year softball veteran. She was 6 when she started playing regularly in Indian Trail. She made her first travel team — the Fireballs — when she was 8. Perrine would’ve attended Sun Valley High School in Union County, but a job transfer brought her family to Salisbury several years ago.

CHAPEL HILL — John Henson is battling his weight. The lean, 6-foot-10 North Carolina forward is desperately trying to bulk up. As one of only two returning Tar Heel big men, he’ll need to be able to throw his weight around next season — in- HENSON stead of being thrown around like he was at times last year. So, Henson tries to eat six to seven meals a day and spends four days a week in the weight room with team strength and conditioning coach Jonas Sahratian. It’s working. Henson is up to about 210 pounds after arriving at Chapel Hill weighing 183. But it’s a fight every step of the way. “He’s been the one guy I’ve probably sat up the most at night, pulling my hair out and probably giving me more gray hair, go- SAHRATIAN ing, ‘OK, What do I have to do with him?’ ” Sahratian said. “Because, he is, he’s kind of like a wet noodle. ... He’s got the most minuscule joints you’ve ever seen. His waist is like a wasp’s waist. Most girls would kill for it. “It’s getting better. It’s been a rough road. He’s been probably the most difficult guy I’ve ever had to train.” Henson spent his freshman year getting tossed around by bigger players in the paint — sometimes knocked to the floor, other times merely knocked off balance enough to miss a shot. He averaged 5.7 points and 4.4 rebounds in about 16 minutes a game, though he improved late in the season as the Tar Heels salvaged some pride with a run to the NIT final. He feels stronger now, at least, as he plays pickup games with alumni or in a summer league circuit in nearby Durham with incoming freshmen Harrison Barnes and Reggie Bullock. “It’s just my body control,” he said. “Certain hits I take, I probably wouldn’t have been able to take last year or a few months ago. It’s just overall confidence. When you’re stronger, you’re more confident.” The flip side, however, is that Henson is burning calories faster these days by playing more basketball games and is struggling to maintain the weight gain.

Both Ajayi and Weber love to tell that story from their sophomore year. “Riley was the first one at East to talk to me,” Ajayi said. “I guess I had WEBER this Northern accent and I was talking so fast he was having a hard time understanding me, but that’s the day he became my first friend at East. And we’re still best friends.” Probably they always will be. They’ve shared more than their share of tough losses. Both were jayvee sophomores when East’s varsity team went 23-5 in 2007-08, and they became junior starters in 2008-09 when East dropped to 7-16. Then they suffered through 16 straight losses to close their high school basketball careers. In maybe six of those defeats, they needed just one more bounce, one more call or one more roll to go their way. Weber, a good basketball and football player, is headed to UNC Charlotte as a regular student. Ajayi, just 5-foot-9 but strong and agile, isn’t ready yet to give up on basketball, and he’s earned a spot in coach Jeremy Currier’s program at Pfeiffer. “Toward the end of school, I went over to Pfeiffer for a walk-on session,” Ajayi said. “In all honesty, that’s all it was, just a walk-on thing, but the new coach was a cool dude and he liked the way I played. He said he’d like to work with me, and I’ll see where it leads.” Ajayi’s game should mesh well with Pfeiffer’s pellmell style. Long-time Pfeiffer coach Dave Davis has moved on to Newberry, but Currier was one of his disciples. “It will definitely still be uptempo,” Ajayi said. “Maybe fewer subs.” Ajayi has proven coachable in the past. When he was still a jayvee, he kept former East coach Greg McKenzie busy answering questions about how he could improve his game. Jon C. LAkeY/SALISBURY POST

MOUNT ULLA — West Rowan rising junior Sarah Perrine has an idea about how to use some of that money her family’s been putting away for her college education. “How about a car!” she suggested cheerfully. Sarah’s father, Charles, chuckled. He didn’t say yes, but he didn’t say no, either. Perrine, 16, has put herself in position to have a sizeable chunk of college paid for. She’s an athletic softball shortstop who’s already on the radar of Division I schools in the Carolinas. Campbell, Western Carolina, Elon and Furman are among the col-

leges that have expressed interest or asked her to visit. Perrine makes all A’s in class, and when coaches start scrutinizing transcripts, that’s nearly as important as being able to make the long throw from the hole or turn 60-mph riseballs into line drives. Perrine recently had one of the biggest disappointments of her life, but she’s dealing with it. She was picked to play in the adidas Futures All-Star Game in Boulder, Colo., but a last-minute injury prevented her from making the trip. Perrine plays a lot — 12 out of 15 days in one recent stretch. She was competing with her Lady Blues travel team before she headed to Colorado when a bunt attempt at a screwball went awry.

Rowan, South rained out on the road From staff reports

Rowan County’s American Legion team was washed out for the second straight night on Tuesday. Leading a best-of-five Area III semifinal series two games to none, Rowan hopes to throw a knockout punch tonight at Western Forsyth. Rowan (28-10) won the first two games of the series with late comebacks, taking a 7-5, 10inning decision on Saturday in Clemmons and prevailing 11-10 on Sunday at Newman Park. Thomas Allen (3-0), who threw seven innings in Rowan’s climactic Game 5 against Mooresville in the second round, is the likely starting pitcher. Allen spent some years growing up in the LewisvilleClemmons area, and is familiar with some of the batters he’ll be facing. Rowan right fielder and leadoff man Zach Smith is 7-for-10 in the series with seven RBIs. Western Forsyth (20-10) is expected to oppose Allen with Ben Currie, a hard-throwing right-hander who signed with Wingate. Western Forsyth’s offense is led by North Carolina A&T ris-

ing sophomore right fielder D.J. Little, who has hit two clutch homers in the series, and Jonathan Holt, an East Carolina-bound third baseman who is the brother of UNC’s Greg Holt. The Area III championship series is set to open Friday, so a Western Forsyth victory tonight forces a potential doubleheader on Thursday.  South Rowan also was rained out on Tuesday and still trails Kernersville two games to one in the other Area III semifinal. South won the series opener 11-1 on Saturday behind strong pitching by Randy Shepherd and four RBIs by Maverick Miles, but it hasn’t been able to stop Kernersville since. Kernersville (20-12) hit five homers and won 11-5 at home on Sunday. Then it scored nine runs with two outs to break through 10-5 at South on Monday. Kernersville, a No. 6 seed, got a late start in the regular season because of East Forsyth’s long playoff run, but it draws from three strong 4A programs (Northwest Guilford, Glenn and East Forsyth) and has a scary lineup that includes

Elon’s Alex Swim. Swim batted .310 with 40 RBIs as a college freshman. Dylan Walker (7-0) will be on the mound for South (26-7) tonight — weather permitting. High Point signee Miles and Catawba signee Julio Zubillaga are both 6-for-12 in the series.  Wilmington and Whiteville have qualified for the state tournament from Area II. Reaching the semifinals in Area IV were Charlotte, Rutherford, Caldwell and Cherryville. Making the semifinals in Area I were Rocky Mount, Kinston, Cary and Clayton. In Area III, host Randolph is an automatic qualifier as the state tournament host and will be joined at McCrary Park by the winner of the Area III championship series.

 Local golf The Corbin Hills Ladies Golf Association played in a “step aside” alternate shot event on Tuesday. The team of Phyllis Durland, Mary Seaford and Sharon Deal took first place. The team of Becky Isenhour, Karla Swanson and Susan Wydner was second.

 Johnny Kyger shot 76 at Forest Oaks Country Club in Greensboro and qualified for the N.C. Match Play Championship. The qualifying line was 76. Glenn Dixon shot 78, Evan Kilchenstein shot 82, and Stephen Bullock shot 85.

 ASU football YOSEF Club members donated $2,500,075 during the 2009-10 fiscal year, which ended on June 30, the fifth consecutive record year for club donations. Granite Quarry native Gerald Adams was one of the people singled out for his fundraising efforts.

 Minor Leagues The Kannapolis Intimidators return home to Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium tonight for a fivegame series with the Lakewood BlueClaws, SAL first-half champions. Promotions this week include Thursday’s Astronomy Night. Fans with planetary interests will be able to view Mercury, Venus, Mars and Saturn following the game.

With Alex Rodriguez standing on the steps in the AL dugout, Ian Kinsler flied out and the NL had its win. “It felt awesome for us to get the win and break the streak,” Broxton said. Until MVP McCann cleared the bases, Robinson Cano’s fifth-inning sacrifice fly stood as the lone run in a game expected to be decided by the loaded pitching staffs on each side. McCann’s deep fly ball to the warning track in right gave the NL hope in the fifth. When he made good with that basesloaded double off Matt Thornton, Atlanta’s steady catcher hit second base and pumped his right fist. The three guys who scored headed to the dugout with a renewed swagger. “You dream of moments like this as a kid. It was amazing,” said McCann, a fivetime All-Star relatively unknown before this night. Cano and his fellow Yankees All-Stars wore black armbands after the death of longtime New York owner George Steinbrenner from a heart attack earlier Tuesday in Tampa, Fla., at age 80. Pictures of The Boss showed on two video screens before a pregame moment of silence, and flags hung at half-staff. “It’s a difficult time, on a great day for baseball, the All-Star game, something everyone looks to,” Yankees and AL manager Joe Girardi said. “A great man in baseball passed. He’s meant so much to not only this organization, but to the game of baseball, and to all of us personally.” It took the NL 14 years to break through after several close calls. The National League lost the last two 4-3, including that 15-inning affair in 2008 at Yankee Stadium. The two before that were also one-run defeats. In 2002, they tied 7-7. Phillies chairman Bill Giles had razzed associated press Charlie Manuel that his job was on the line Marlon Byrd points to shortstop rafael Furcal after Byrd threw to second for the out. if the NL didn’t finally win again. Turns out this National League lineup didn’t need star Washington rookie Stephen Jimenez, Colorado’s 15-game winner and Star starter since 23-year-old Dwight GoodStrasburg — though the phenom pitcher first-time All-Star, came out of the gate en of the Mets in 1988 — matched that. might have generated a nice buzz around with two scoreless innings.

OWNER FroM 1B “He was and always will be as much of a New York Yankee as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford and all of the other Yankee legends,” baseball commissioner Bud Selig said. Once reviled by fans for his overbearing and tempestuous nature, Steinbrenner mellowed in his final decade and became beloved by employees and rivals alike for his success. Steinbrenner was taken from his home to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, Fla., and died about 6:30 a.m, a person close to the owner told The AP. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not disclosed those details. “George was a fierce competitor who was the perfect fit for the city that never sleeps — colorful, dynamic and always reaching for the stars,” former President Bill Clinton said. Yankees captain Derek Jeter added: “He expected perfection.” In 371⁄2 years as owner, Steinbrenner whipped a moribund $10 million team into a $1.6 billion colossus that became the model of a modern franchise, one with its own TV network and ballpark food business. Under his often brutal but always colorful reign, the Yankees won seven World Series championships, 11 American League pennants and 16 AL East titles, going on spectacular spending sprees that caused Larry Lucchino, president of the rival Boston Red Sox, to dub Steinbrenner’s Yankees the “Evil Empire.”

He moved the Yankees from their tradition-rich “House that Ruth Built” into a new $1.5 billion Yankee Stadium. Call it the “House the Boss Built.” He appeared there just four times: the April 2009 opener, the first two games of last year’s World Series and this year’s home opener, when Jeter and manager Joe Girardi went to his suite and personally delivered his seventh World Series ring. “He was very emotional,” son Hal Steinbrenner said then. Steinbrenner’s larger-than-life outbursts transcended sports and made him a pop culture figure whose firings were parodied on the TV comedy “Seinfeld” and even by Steinbrenner himself in commercials. “George was The Boss, make no mistake,” said Berra, the Hall of Famer who ended a 14-year feud with Steinbrenner in 1999. “He built the Yankees into champions, and that’s something nobody can ever deny. He was a very generous, caring, passionate man. George and I had our differences, but who didn’t? We became great friends over the last decade and I will miss him very much.” Steinbrenner’s death, about 14 hours before the first pitch of the All-Star game in Anaheim, Calif., was the second in three days to rock the Yankees. Bob Sheppard, the team’s revered public address announcer from 1951-07, died Sunday at 99. A video tribute was shown and players bowed their heads during a moment of silence before the national anthem was played at Angel Stadium. Jeter and the Yankees wore black armbands, and the U.S., Canadian and California flags were lowered to half-staff. New York was 11 years removed from its last championship when Steinbrenner, then an obscure son of an Ohio shipbuilder,

headed a group that bought the team from CBS Inc. on Jan. 3, 1973, for about $8.7 million net. Forbes now values the Yankees at $1.6 billion, trailing only Manchester United ($1.8 billion) and the Dallas Cowboys ($1.65 billion). Former commissioner Fay Vincent, who fought many battles with Steinbrenner, said his legacy would be turning the Yankees “into an absolute gold mine and a monster of power and success in baseball.” “He was one of the few who realized this was an iconic franchise, and he could turn it into something really special, and he did,” Vincent said. Steinbrenner ruled with obsessive dedication to detail — from trades to the airblowers that kept his ballparks spotless. When he thought the club’s parking lot was too crowded, Steinbrenner stood on the pavement — albeit behind a van, out of sight — and had a guard check every driver’s credential. But he also tried to make up for his temper with good deeds and often-unpublicized charitable donations. His rule was interrupted by two lengthy suspensions, including a 15-month ban in 1974 after pleading guilty to conspiring to make illegal contributions to the re-election campaign of President Richard Nixon. Steinbrenner was fined $15,000 and later pardoned by President Ronald Reagan. He also was banned for 21⁄2 years for paying self-described gambler Howie Spira to obtain negative information on outfielder Dave Winfield, with whom Steinbrenner was feuding. Through it all, Steinbrenner lived up to his billing as “The Boss,” a nickname he clearly enjoyed as he ruled with an iron fist.

“I really like to win, and I’m always hoping that we can get back to where West was,” Perrine said. “I just keep pushing and hustling as hard as I can, and I know we had a lot of girls who really picked it up and improved this season.” Perrine is a good contact hitter and smooth, strongarmed fielder, but more than one coach has told her that her best asset is baserunning. “I don’t know that I’m the fastest runner, but I can catch on quick to what kind of pitch is going to be thrown and I know when I can steal,” she explained. In the Battle of the Border Softball Showcase held at Nations Ford (S.C.) High School in June, Perrine went 4-for-5 to raise her profile with several more colleges. Next came the surprise invitation to play in the adidas game.

I played at the East Y, the South Y, the Salisbury Y, anywhere they were playing.” Ajayi still isn’t a huge 3-point threat, but his midrange game, especially his pull-up jumper, have come a long way. He averaged 6.5 points as a junior, with a high of 19 against Northwest Cabarrus. As a senior, he averaged a team-high 11.1

Perrine’s injury isn’t serious, but it did turn her into a temporary cheerleader for her Lady Blues teammates last weekend. She still showed up and did what she could vocally to help out. “A couple of colleges came just to watch her cheer from the dugout,” Charles said with a smile. It will all work out. Bet on Sarah getting some pretty nice wheels.

The next step was figuring out which school would be best for Sarah’s softball career. “Everybody told my dad that the softball players were at West,” Perrine said with a sigh. West went to the Final Four three times from 2002-05, claiming two 3A titles, and won six straight league championships, so the advice was well-intentioned. But East reemerged as the county’s top softball program with the arrival of NESBITT p i t c h e r C h e l s e a White and Ericka Nesbitt in 2008, and it has won the last three NPC championships. West did OK during Perrine’s freshman year but dropped to 7-14 in 2010.

most enviable: Eat whenever he feels even a touch of hunger. “The nutrition coach told me to eat anything that swims, runs, jumps or flies,” Henson said. “And that’s what I’ve been doing.” Sahratian went as far as to have Henson send him pictures through cell phone of every meal he ate for much of

points a game. He was in double figures in 16 of East’s 21 contests, led the Mustangs in scoring 12 times and produced a high of 20 against North Rowan in the Sam Moir Christmas Classic. He also was East’s representative on the all-county team. “All those days I spent at the Y, that was one of the goals that I had pushing me,” Ajayi said. “All-county made me feel pretty good.” Ajayi’s lyrical surname is a gift from his Nigerian grandfather, and he hopes to make it a name known throughout Conference Carolinas. Since he came south he’s made a lot of 15-foot jumpers, a lot of A’s and B’s and a lot of friends. Weber was just the first.

DAVIDSON — Bob McKillop spent his 60th birthday in Austria on Tuesday, when one of his Davidson players had his Israeli teammates sing happy birthday to him in Yiddish. Today, McKillop will sit in the stands at the European under-20 championships as Jake Cohen and Israel face future Davidson player Chris Czerapowicz and Sweden. Later that night, he’ll watch another incoming Davidson freshman, Ali Mackay, lead Great Britain against Denmark. MCKILLOP McKillop’s best season at Davidson may have come from the sensational play of Stephen Curry from nearby Charlotte, but the coach’s longterm, steady success at the school is due in large part by his overseas recruiting. “My first exposure to Europe was in 1981 when I was invited to run a camp in Italy,” McKillop said in a phone interview Tuesday. “After I ran a camp I was invited to run a clinic in Italy, and it just mushroomed. You’re talking close to 30 years I’ve been involved. It’s been an eye-opening experience for me, a great experience for me.” This trip is a little more special, with three of his players competing in the same tournament. The 6-foot-6 Czerapowicz, the MVP of last year’s under-18 European championships, leads Davidson’s incoming recruiting class. Mackay, a 6-10 big man from Scotland, is also expected to contribute as Davidson looks to rebound after going 16-15 last season. While Davidson’s magical run to within a missed 3-pointer of the 2008 Final Four behind

the sharp-shooting Curry brought numerous domestic attention to the small, liberal arts school, it didn’t matter much in the recruitment of Czerapowicz and Mackay. “I personally knew very little about Davidson before the recruiting process as college basketball, well basketball full stop, gets very little coverage in Britain,” Mackay wrote in an e-mail. “I knew little about any colleges teams in America. ... It was actually my (Great Britain) coach that put me in touch with coach McKillop.” Czerapowicz said he watched Davidson’s 2008 NCAA tournament games on Swedish TV, but it wasn’t the reason he chose Davidson. “About two years ago I got a phone call from Coach McKillop asking me if I wanted to come, and he was very convincing,” Czerapowicz said. “At that time I had no other college offers.” The coach’s connections have produced numerous foreign Davidson players in McKillop’s 21 years at the school, which have produced five NCAA tournament berths. On the current roster, Nik Cochran is from Vancouver, Ben Allison is from England and Frank Ben-Eze was born in Nigeria. “I think we were a little bit ahead of it in 1981. I don’t think the onslaught of Europeans in the NBA had reached the point it is now,” McKillop said. “I don’t believe many colleges, many universities had been recruiting very aggressively overseas.” Cohen, who averaged a team-best 13.3 points and 5.1 rebounds as a freshman last season at Davidson, is from Berwyn, Pa. His Jewish heritage allowed him to become a dual citizen and join Israel’s team. “I didn’t think getting Bar Mitzhaved when I was 13 would lead to something like this,” Cohen joked in a phone interview. “It’s been really cool to put Israel across your chest.”

Schools to apply for new D-II league Associated Press

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The realignment bug has hit Division II. Nine Division II schools in Arkansas and Oklahoma announced plans to apply to the NCAA for permission to create a new conference. Arkansas-Monticello, Arkansas Tech, East Central University, Harding, Henderson State, Ouachita Baptist, Southeastern Oklahoma State, Southern Arkansas and Southwestern Oklahoma State must submit a strategic plan, conference constitution and conference bylaws to the NCAA by Dec. 1. The Arkansas schools are currently in the Gulf South Conference, and the Oklahoma schools are in the Lone Star. The schools say they are trying to limit travel costs. “It’s so much easier for the fans,” Arkansas Tech athletic di-

rector Steve Mullins said. “It’s so much easier for the student-athletes, too. There’s just a difference between riding in a bus five hours and 15 hours — particularly after the contest.” Athletic schedules for the 2010-11 season will not be affected, but it’s unclear whether the schools will try to play in their new league for 2011-12. The loss of the Arkansas schools would leave the Gulf South with just five football programs. The league would have eight schools overall in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee.  KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl has added senior John Fields from UNC-Wilmington. Fields has one year of eligibility remaining after playing three years at the Division I level, one at UNC-Wilmington and two at East Carolina. He sat out a year after

transferring from ECU. Fields received his undergraduate degree from UNC-Wilmington. Tennessee expects the 6-foot-9, 230-pound forward from Fayetteville to be able to play immediately, pending an NCAA waiver. As a junior, Fields averaged a team-best 8.7 rebounds per game and scored 10.2 points per contest. He set a single-game school record for rebounds with 21 against Towson and a season record for blocks with 59.  INDIANAPOLIS — Robert Marve, a Miami transfer, is the No. 1 quarterback for Purdue headed into preseason practice.  TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Georgia State will be paid an extra $35,000 for agreeing to move its football game at Alabama to a Thursday.  ANAHEIM, Calif. — No. 1 draft choice Bryce Harper has won the Golden Spikes Award, giv-

en to the country’s top amateur baseball player. Harper is the second junior college player to win the award. Alex Fernandez did it in 1990. They are the only two non-NCAA Division I players to get the award.

NFL SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Chargers say receiver Vincent Jackson has been suspended by the NFL for the first three games of the 2010 season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He pleaded guilty in February to his second DUI since 2006. The suspension could be moot. Jackson has refused to sign his tender as a restricted free agent and could sit out the first 10 games of the season.  NEW YORK — Terrell Owens would like to point out that he’s never been disciplined by the NFL for off-field conduct, unlike some

of the league’s “golden boys.” No team has yet to sign him as a free agent, and the polarizing receiver worries they’re swayed by the perception he’s a troublemaker.  PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that the Steelers have given coach Mike Tomlin a three-year extension. He had one year and an option left on his 5-year deal, which was worth about $2.5 million annually.

NHL COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Columbus Blue Jackets have resigned right wing Jared Boll, one of the club’s toughest players and its leader in penalty minutes the past three seasons. Boll, a native of Charlotte, has 13 goals along with 555 penalty minutes in 218 career NHL games.  ST. LOUIS — Blues defenseman Darryl Sydor has retired after an 18-year career.

History in Tiger’s thoughts

Jefferson headed to Utah Associated Press

BY DOUG FERGUSON Associated Press

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — From the middle of the ninth fairway, just to the right of a pot bunker that he managed to avoid, Tiger Woods considered two options from 85 yards into a gentle breeze and executed both of them perfectly. He gave a hard rap with his new putter and sent the ball bouncing along the links of St. Andrews until it rolled onto the green and settled 12 feet left of the flag. Then with a sand wedge, Woods sent the ball into the air with just the right trajectory. It never left the flag and WOODS stopped about 6 feet away. The sand wedge was the safer shot, and the right one for this day. “But it depends on the wind,” Woods said later during his practice round at the British Open. “If the wind is blowing hard, you can’t hit it in the air. You have to putt it.” For Woods, the key to the British Open always has been about control. This year, that holds true on and off the golf course. His biggest test Tuesday came not from the gorse bushes and pot bunkers that dot the landscape on the Old Course, but from a full house of reporters who wanted to know as much about his personal life as how he plans to play the Road Hole. Unlike his last big press conference at a major, he didn’t lose his cool. Asked about his marriage at the U.S. Open, he snapped back, “That’s none of your business.” Asked on Tuesday if his divorce is final, Woods calmly said, “I’m not going to go into that.” He did reveal details of a breakup — with his putter. Woods is changing the flat stick for the first time in 12 years, going to a Nike model that he says will allow him to cope with greens that are on the slow side. One reporter grilled him on his language, his spitting, throwing clubs and his tantrums on the golf course, then asked if he had any plans to be respectful at the home of golf. “I’m trying to become a better player and a better person, yes,” Woods replied. Of the 34 questions he fielded, only 16 of them were related to his game, the claret jug and St. Andrews. Then again, Woods already has answered plenty of questions about winning an Open at the home of golf. The way he has played the last two times at St. Andrews, it looks as though he owns the place. Woods captured his first claret jug in 2000 when he did not hit into a single bunker all week — talk about control — and won by eight shots with a record score to par of 19-under 269. He won by five shots when the Open returned to St. Andrews five years later. Now, he has a chance at even more history in a gray old town dripping with it. No one has ever won the claret jug three times at St. Andrews. Woods remains the betting favorite, and not even his biggest rivals dispute that he likely will be a factor. “I think he’s going to play well here because he has a lot of heart, he’s got an incredible short game and he hits the ball a long ways,” Phil Mickelson said. “His irons are as good as anybody’s in the game, and I think the golf course ... he’s obviously won on it twice. He has gutted out two fourth-place finishes in majors when he probably didn’t have his best stuff, and this course sets up very well for him. “So he will be in contention on Sunday,” Mickelson said. “I don’t know how anybody can question that.”

erick dampier’s non-guaranteed $13 million contract gives the Bobcats financial flexibility.

Charlotte trades Chandler BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press

CHARLOTTE — The Charlotte Bobcats completed a wild 24 hours of trade discussions with a deal Tuesday that does include center Tyson Chandler after all. He’s just not heading to the team he thought a day earlier. After a potential trade with Toronto fell apart, the Bobcats sent Chandler and fellow center Alexis Ajinca to the Dallas Mavericks for center Erick Dampier, forward Eduardo Najera, shooting guard Matt Carroll and cash considerations. While the Bobcats get financial flexibility with Dampier’s nonguaranteed $13 million contract, the injury-plagued Chandler is off to this third team in a year after being acquired from New Orleans last summer. “We could not be more excited to add Tyson Chandler,” said Mavericks general manager Donnie Nelson. “He is one of the most versatile big men in the league today. He gives our front line a defensive, shot-blocking, athletic punch we haven’t had here in awhile.” Bobcats general manager Rod Higgins said the Bobcats will either waive Dampier or make another trade with him. That would allow the Bobcats clear about $7 million in salary-cap space because they dump Chandler’s $12.7 million contract and Ajinca’s $1.5 million deal and take in Carroll ($4.3 million) and Najera ($2.8 million). Before the trade, the Bobcats

were only about $3 million shy of the reaching the luxury tax threshold, a payroll figure owner Michael Jordan said they wouldn’t exceed. “You have to consider that contract is probably one of the most valuable contracts in the league,” Higgins said. “The flexibility is the beautiful part of having Erick’s deal, maybe not so much for Erick himself as a player, but for the franchise itself.” Carroll is a jump-shooter Charlotte traded to Dallas just 19 months ago, one of eight deals involving 26 players the Bobcats have made the since Larry Brown took over as coach at the start of the 2008-09 season. Najera will add depth to Charlotte’s frontcourt. It’s a far different outcome for Charlotte than what was being discussed a day earlier. The Bobcats had been closing in on a deal that would’ve sent Chandler and Boris Diaw to Toronto for Jose Calderon and Reggie Evans. Calderon would have provided Charlotte with a needed replacement for point guard Raymond Felton. While Higgins insisted the deal wasn’t agreed upon, the Raptors seemed to think it was. Chandler wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Monday night that his agent had told him the deal was done, while Evans thanked Raptors fans on his Twitter page. Instead, the 7-foot-1 Chandler goes to a more competitive team out West, while Diaw remains in Charlotte — for now.

“I never talked to Boris. No one from the Bobcats talked to Boris about him in the trade,” Higgins said. “I can’t speak for anybody else.” Foot and ankle injuries limited Chandler to 51 games last season and Brown started 37-year-old Theo Ratliff ahead of him late in the season and in the playoffs. Chandler averaged 6.5 points and 6.3 rebounds. “We did the deal because we felt it was going to give us the opportunity to get better, if not today than down the road,” Higgins said. “I think with Tyson when he came here I think unfairly for him there were probably a lot of expectations. Maybe he didn’t get a chance to show what he can do.” The Mavericks have been searching to add a big man in the offseason. They get two when you include Ajinca. The Bobcats gave up on Ajinca, whom they gave up this year’s first-round pick to take in the 2008 draft. He played sparingly in two seasons. “Alexis Ajinca is a fine young center with significant upside,” Nelson said. Higgins indicated the Bobcats aren’t done dealing. Acquiring a point guard remains a priority after the Calderon deal fell through. “With D.J. Augustin as our only point guard under contract, we know we have to get more depth,” Higgins said. “We will try at the end of the day to improve that position. ... Our roster still has to take form.”

MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to send power forward Al Jefferson to the Utah Jazz for center Kosta Koufos and two future firstround draft picks. Timberwolves president David Kahn says the firstround picks and the added flexibility under the salary cap made it the right time to trade Jefferson. Jefferson averaged 17.1 points and 9.3 rebounds last season in his first year back from a major knee injury. But the Wolves have signed center Darko Milicic, agreed to terms with center Nikola Pekovic and traded for Michael Beasley to reshape a small front line into a bigger, and sleeker, unit. In the end, Jefferson was viewed as expendable because his style of play, while extremely effective on the offensive end, does not fit with what the Timberwolves want to do under coach Kurt Rambis. “With Kevin Love and Michael Beasley on the team, there wouldn’t have been enough playing time for everybody to showcase Al,” Kahn said in a conference call. HEAT MIAMI — Zydrunas Ilgauskas has dealt Cleveland another blow by planning to follow LeBron James to the Heat. Ilgauskas expects to sign a two-year contract with the Heat later this week. NETS EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New Jersey acquired guard Anthony Morrow in a sign and trade deal with Golden State. The deal was completed a day after the Nets handed Morrow an offer sheet on a three-year, $12 million contract. The Warriors, who were not expected to match the offer, will get the Nets’ secondround draft pick in 2011. NUGGETS DENVER — The Nuggets say center Brian Butch has undergone surgery to fix a ruptured left patella tendon. WIZARDS WASHINGTON — Center Hilton Armstrong has signed a free-agent contract with Washington. SPURS SAN ANTONIO — The Spurs have finalized a deal with forward Matt Bonner.

‘People’s Champ’ eyes British Open title BY PAUL NEWBERRY Associated Press

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — Phil Mickelson rolled in an 18-foot birdie putt on the final hole of practice — oh, how he’d love to be in that same position for a win at the British Open come Sunday — then headed off to take care of his other duties. “Give me about 10 or 15 minutes,” the People’s Champion shouted toward the fans clamoring for his autograph. “I’ll be right over there, behind the stands, to sign for you.”

After collecting his valuables and taking a brief respite in the St. Andrews clubhouse, Mickelson popped out on cue behind a barrier along Golf Place. He worked up MICKELSON and down the line, looking everyone in the eye as he signed. He bantered with the crowd. He put his signature on everything from visors to programs to flags. The only time he balked was when someone put for-

ward a ball to sign — a no-no for Mickelson, who, like many athletes, knows that sort of keepsake will usually make its way straight to eBay. “No balls. I don’t sign balls,” Mickelson said politely. “Anything else I can get for you?” Mickelson said he feels a “spiritual” connection with St. Andrews, the birthplace of golf and a course that he feels gives him a real shot at winning his first British Open title, with its wideopen spaces that allow one to pull out the driver all around the course.

Indeed, there’s nothing he loves better than just gripping and ripping, even if it means throwing caution to that persistent wind sweeping in off St. Andrews Bay. “I expect to play well here, I really do,” Mickelson said Tuesday. “I expect to be in contention.” The chance to share triumphs with his fans are important, he added, even if some in the media and maybe even a fellow golfer or two might be skeptical of his motives. “I’ve been very fortunate to have support from fans,” Mickelson said. “It’s meant a lot to me over the course of my career.”

Do not race to take winners BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

Lucille Ball said, “The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.” Often, the secret of staying alive when on defense at the bridge table is to card honestly, take tricks slowly, and ignore your age. East made a very bad error during the defense of this deal. West opened with a textbook weak two-bid, showing a respectable six-card suit and 5-10 high-card points. After two passes, South balanced with two no-trump, promising 16-18 points. Obviously, South might have passed with such strong spades, but he was worried that his side would miss a vulnerable game. Here, though, North had to pass. (Remember, if West had opened one spade, and South had balanced with one no-trump, that would have shown only 11-14 points.) West led the spade queen. After East discarded the club seven, declrer won with his king and ran the diamond six. East took his jack and shifted to the heart four, declarer winning with his ace and playing a second diamond, covered by the 10, king and ace. What should East have done now? East, knowing that his partner was out of diamonds and that he had no entry left, made the fatal mistake of cashing the diamond queen. Yes, he would never have scored that trick if he had not taken it then, but it established two winners for declarer — a net gain of one. And East knew that the club king

Do things in accordance with your highest standards and you’ll make the year ahead far more profitable and satisfying. In order to be successful, you must first be accepted by those who stand by your side. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Don’t hesitate any longer to make that needed decision that you’ve been fearful of making. Fortunately, your judgment is far better than usual and is likely to steer you correctly. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Assignments or tasks that others find to be both challenging and threatening are the ones that will be the most appealing to you. You’ll welcome being tested in these areas. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Because you’re likely to be far more charismatic than you realize, others will find your company to be fun and delightful. You’ll especially attract the attention of members of the opposite gender. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — A matter having something to do material security, which has caused you some concern, is likely to be put to rest. You will finally start to see that light at the end of the tunnel. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Be sure to use your warm personality to make those important points that need to be impressed upon others. Using a bit of theatrics and a touch of wit will help tremendously. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Personal gains are likely to be made, but how they come about could be rather unusual and different. However, it won’t matter as long as they are garnered in an honest manner. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — A very pleasant surprise might be in the offing, when someone you thought didn’t like you goes out of his/her way to help you realize a big goal you haven’t been able to reach on your own. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — There is someone who is reluctant to express his/her feelings for you because you’ve been a bit standoffish. If you’ve done so out of fear, and you actually like this person, give him/her a signal. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — It won’t be through hard arguments or strong assertiveness that you’ll sway others to your way of thinking. It will be by appealing to their finer instincts and sensitivities that you’ll soften their stance. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Even if observers aren’t aware of it, you know you have accomplished something of great worth. The sense of personal pride and gratification you feel will be what counts. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — You might get that opportunity you’ve been looking for to clarify something that onlookers haven’t been able to understand. Once you get to explain yourself, you’ll feel a lot better. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Someone who owes you a lot for what you’ve done for him/her in the past will step forward and do something for you that will be of tremendous value to you. S/he has been waiting for this opportunity. United FeatUre Syndicate

Amanpour to start Sundays on ABC NEW YORK (AP) — ABC’s Christiane Amanpour (AH’-mahn-pore) officially joins the Sunday morning talk world on Aug. 1. ABC said Tuesday that the former CNN international reporter begins as host of “This Week” in less than three weeks. Amanpour was a surprise hire to replace George Stephanopoulos (stehf-uhNAHP’-uh-luhs) on the Sunday political show, which competes with NBC’s “Meet the Press” and CBS’ “Face the Nation.” With an August start, ABC wants Amanpour to get in the Sunday morning rhythm and get a few shows done before the political season starts in earnest.

Dear Dr. Gott: For about two years, I had constant facial pain in my cheeks, jaw and behind my eyes with a feeling of constant pressure in my upper palate, sinuses, jaw and cheek, in addition to the pain and pressure in front DR. PETER my teeth. I also GOTT had redness on my cheeks, nose and down the left side of my neck. I consulted with my dentist who fitted me with upper and lower mouth guards, which I wear at night. He told me that I grind my teeth with a side-to-side motion and push my upper front teeth forward with my bottom front teeth. After a year and a half, the guards still had not relieved any of the pain. Recently, I consulted with my primary-care physician regarding flushing and the redness on my cheeks and nose. I was diagnosed with rosacea and prescribed metronidazole gel to be applied twice a day. I was advised that it would only help reduce the redness and not the pain. However, after three days of using the gel, my facial pain was reduced by half and after 10 days, it was all but gone. I missed using it one day, and the pain returned. Just a couple of days after restarting, the pain went away again.

Because I haven’t made any other changes, I believe the gel is responsible but don’t know why since my doctor clearly stated that it was not a pain reliever. Can you tell me why this happened? Dear Reader: Rosacea is a disorder of the skin that causes redness, inflammation, swelling, small pusfilled bumps and a host of other symptoms. It most commonly occurs on the face, but may develop on other areas of the body. According to the National Rosacea Society, many sufferers report burning, stinging, itching or a feeling of tightness across the affected areas. I could not find documentation of facial pain or pressure as known symptoms. However, this is not to say that it is unrelated because inflammation and swelling

can cause pain. It is my theory that your facial pain was probably due to inflammation caused by the rosacea and by using the metronidazole gel, you effectively reduced or eliminated this source of the pain. Because you do not mention having seen a dermatologist, I recommend that you make an appointment with one to confirm the diagnosis and undergo regular monitoring. Rosacea rarely gets better on its own and often worsens over time if not treated. While I do not doubt your primarycare physician’s diagnosis, I do believe you should get a second opinion from a specialist to ensure that you do, in fact, have rosacea and are being correctly treated. He or she will also be able to offer other treatment suggestions and helpful home-care tips. In the meantime, stick

with the prescription gel. You should also be gentle when washing your face and avoid or sparingly use lotions, creams and cosmetics because they may aggravate your symptoms. Avoid touching your face. Use sunscreen and oil-free moisturizers and cosmetics once the topical medication has dried. Extreme temperature changes, alcohol, sun exposure, stress and spicy foods may trigger symptoms. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including “Live Longer, Live Better,” “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Diet” and “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook,” which are available at most bookstores or online.
