BP, feds clash over reopening capped well Seep, possible methane stir concerns


Christian comedian Scott Meade entertains the crowd during a recent appearance at The Inn on Mooresville Road.

The Cooleemee Clown Scott Meade is on a mission to make people lighten up and enjoy some divine laughter Anybody ever been to Cooleemee? You have?! Been to Cooleemee?! I’m amazed. I tell most people if they’re ever lost, they’re probably in Cooleemee, so come look me up. I mean, we’re easy to find. You’ve just got to turn by the liquor store, which is right beside the mayor’s office, which is right across the street from the elementary school. And I’m not kidding. That’s the truth. It’s funny. — Scott Meade, performing at The Inn on July 10. BY KATHY CHAFFIN

OOLEEMEE — Growing up in Lebanon, Va., Scott Meade was the class clown. “In high school,” he said, “my teachers used to tell me, ‘Oh, you’re a comedian, but that will never get you far.’ Even at work, when things get too heavy, I need to lighten it up and people tell me, ‘You need to take that act on the road.’ “Finally, I thought, ‘What the heck? I’ll give it a shot.’ ” At age 46, Meade gave his first performance at The Inn, 1012 Mooresville Road, last fall. “I tried to take comedy and use it as a ministry to reach people,” he said. “People don’t want to be preached at anymore. They want people who they can relate to and who they can understand. “I thought sharing these funny stories with people would break down the walls and they would listen. ... Then I remind them, ‘Hey, God loves you and He wants you to love life here and now, not just when you get to heaven. “Heaven’s going to be wonderful and great, but God’s created this whole world for us to enjoy right now.” Meade has since performed at The Garage in downtown Winston-Salem and again at The Inn on July 10. Innkeeper Tom Millspaugh introduced him that night as “The Cooleemee Clown.”

“I’m looking at different ways to touch lives. If it means me acting like a fool and getting their attention, then so be it.” SCOTT MEADE On his goal as a comedian

So far, Meade said the response to his comedy routines has been very positive. “I always turn to my wife when I need guidance,” he said. “She’s my best critic. She’s the one I know who will be honest with me.” Karen Meade has offered her husband suggestions on routines he can “tweak” here and there, he said, but overall, even her response has been good. “I would love to do this full time and go from church to church or high school to high school or wherever and just remind people that you can enjoy life here now,” Meade said. “I would like to do it just as a service,” he said, “a whole comedy routine to break down walls and reach people who are just tired of being preached at. “I’m looking at different ways to touch lives. If it means me acting like a fool and getting their attention, then so be it. I’m willing to do that.” Meade covers a variety of topics in his comedy routines including stories about living in the South, driving in his wife’s pink Mary Kay car, cell phone messages and his childhood. “Depending on the situation, I’ve talked about playing cops and robbers on my bike when the front wheel flew off and I went flying through the air,” he said, “or the time we were watching Saturday morning cartoons and the house was on fire. We were too enthralled with the cartoons to even get out of the house.” Meade said nothing’s off limits, including his parents. “My mom says she’s going to write a book and tell all

my secrets since I’ve talked about her in my comedy,” he said. One of his topics at The Inn was his wife’s sports addiction. “Her biggest thing that she loves is University of Tennessee sports,” he said. “My wife thinks I’m sexy if I’m dressed all in orange ...” His three children — 22-year-old Danielle, 18-year-old Brandon and 11year-old Madison — are also subject to show up in his routines along with random thoughts that cross his mind. “I thought one time,” he said at The Inn, “what if I could do a sermon like Karl Childers in ‘Sling Blade?’ You ever seen that movie? ... ‘I like the way you talk ... We’re going to read about the devil and his demons ... Um huh.” During his most recent performance there, the audience laughed loudly when the fan on the stage started blowing his shirt up. “You’re flashing,” someone shouted. “Hey, at least I got one good laugh tonight,” he responded. Meade, who is mentoring to become a Foursquare Church minister, said he was 17 when he was first called to the ministry. “The bulk of my life has been faith-based,” he said. At age 14, one of Meade’s friends got him involved in a youth group at Lebanon Baptist Church. “It was about that time when I realized I had a passion for drama and musicals and just performing in general,” he said. “We used to tour performing musicals about the life of Christ.” After graduating from Lebanon High School, Meade joined the Air Force. When his service was up, he got a job as a computer programmer at Food Lion headquarters in Salisbury. He left there to take a job with Computer Sciences Corp. and works under contract as a project manager at Lowe’s Home Improvement headquarters in Mooresville. Since moving to North Carolina in 1989, Meade has mentored with ministers at several Rowan County churches. He’s currently doing a

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — BP and the Obama administration offered significantly differing views Sunday on whether the capped Gulf of Mexico oil well will have to be reopened, a contradiction that may be an effort by the oil giant to avoid blame if crude starts spewing again. Pilloried for nearly three months as it tried repeatedly to stop the leak, BP PLC capped the nearly mile-deep well Thursday and wants to keep it that way. The government’s plan, however, is to eventually pipe oil to the surface, which would ease pressure on the fragile well but would require up to three more days of oil spilling into the Gulf. “No one associated with this whole activity ... wants to see any more oil flow into the Gulf of Mexico,” Doug Suttles, BP’s chief operating officer, said Sunday. “Right now we don’t have a target to return the well to flow.” An administration official familiar with the spill oversight, however, told the Associated Press that a seep and possible methane were found near the busted oil well. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because an announcement about the next steps had not been made yet. The concern all along — since pressure readings on the cap weren’t as high as expected — was a leak elsewhere in the wellbore, meaning the cap may have to be reopened to prevent the environmental disaster from becoming even worse and harder to fix.

The official, who would not clarify what is seeping near the well, also said BP is not complying with the government’s demand for more monitoring. BP spokesman Mark Salt declined to comment on the allegation, but said “we continue to work very closely with all government scientists on this.” Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the Obama administration’s spill response chief, insisted Sunday that “nothing has changed” since Saturday, when he said oil would eventually be piped to surface ships. The government is overseeing BP’s work to stop the leak, which ultimately is to be plugged using a relief well. Allen decided to extend testing of the cap that had been scheduled to end Sunday, the official who spoke on condition of anonymity said. That means the oil will stay in the well for now as scientists continue to run tests and monitor pressure readings. The official didn’t say how long that would take. Officials at the Department of Homeland Security referred questions to a statement issued by Allen; neither he nor BP officials could explain the apparent contradiction in plans. Suttles’ comments carved out an important piece of turf for BP: If Allen sticks with the containment plan and oil again pours forth into the Gulf, even briefly, it will be the government’s doing, not BP’s. The company very much wants to avoid a repeat of the live underwater video that showed millions of gallons of oil spewing from the blown well for weeks. “I can see why they’re pushing for keeping the cap on and shut in until the relief well is in

Iredell man charged with murder following shooting, pursuit Staff report

HARMONY — An 18-yearold Iredell County man was shot to death early Sunday, and another man was charged with murder following a vehicular chase. The victim was identified as Desmon Kennell Pless of Harmony. Iredell County sheriff’s deputies found Pless’ body when they responded to a report of a shooting at 186 Harmony Blend Drive in the community in northern Iredell. While at the scene of the shooting, deputies broadcast a description of a suspicious vehicle.

After the vehicle was spotted, officers pursued it to I-40, where two suspects were taken into custody, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Another suspect was later captured in nearby woods after being tracked by a police dog, and a fourth suspect turned himself in. Joshua Enoch Wilfong, 20, of Union Grove was arrested and charged with murder. He was being held without bond late Sunday in the Iredell County Jail. Detectives said Pless and Wilfong were acquainted and an altercation between them had preceded the shooting.

china Grove hosted its 29th annual Farmers day on Friday and saturday. this photo from the salisbury Post’s archives shows a Farmers day scene from several years ago. the event, which focuses on farming heritage, continues to grow each year. this year more than 120 vendors participated and a variety of bands filled the streets with music. ripe produce and baked goods were available during the event. Antique tractors were also a big hit.

Fundraising is easy with help from O’Charley’s Q: What do you do for fundraising for your track team? A: Ah, the fun of fundraising. Any nonprofit in this county can probably give you all kind of ideas how to or how not to go about fundraising. Of course, I am not a stranger to fundraising since I work for the Rowan County Y. ESTER The Salisbury Speedsters MARSH is also a nonprofit organization. It is a youth track and field team with 24 athletes, 17 of whom qualified for the AAU Junior Olympics national championship. I do want to applaud all the youth athletes who have dedicated their summer to the sport they practice and love. Not just our track and field athletes, but also our RACY swim team that is going to the nationals the last week in July, our Legion baseball team, AAU basketball teams and more so many more. What dedication on the part of the athletes, coaches and, of course, the parents! As we all know it costs money to participate in anything, especially a competitive, traveling sport. With our track team we have sold shirts to

raise funds, sold tickets for food and gas cards, but the best one — and most fun — was the breakfast at O’Charley’s Our local O’Charley’s restaurant has a great fundraising “deal”. One of our track parents was familiar with this fundraising since she is also involved in AAU basketball. O’Charleys will serve breakfast from 8 to 10 a.m. on a Saturday; you can check with the manager to pick a Saturday. They sold $6 tickets to the breakfast, which included three pancakes, two strips of bacon, scrambled eggs and unlimited coffee, tea, orange juice, and soda. O’Charley’s cooks the breakfast, and your team or school welcomes and serves the ticket holders. The best part is that 100 percent of the profit goes toward your cause. The AAU Junior Olympics is held at Norfolk State University and because of O’Charleys, you (the people who buy tickets for fundraisers), the Salisbury Speedsters, local schools; the Y and many other nonprofit organizations are able to do very special things for very special people. I want to thank all the businesses and people who support nonprofit clubs and organization, even in this time of economic strain. Ester Marsh works at the J.F. Hurley Family Y.

in this film publicity image released by Warner Bros., Leonardo dicaprio is shown in a scene from ‘inception.’

‘Inception’ earns dreamy reception LOS ANGELES (AP) — Leonardo DiCaprio and Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” is anything but a sleeper as the thriller opened big with $60.4 million and a No. 1 finish at the weekend box office, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Warner Bros. action tale about a team that sneaks into people’s dreams is DiCaprio’s biggest opening weekend, topping his previous best of $41.1 million for last winter’s “Shutter Island.” “Inception” falls far short of director Christopher Nolan’s best, though. Nolan is the man who directed the Batman blockbuster “The Dark Knight,” which opened over the same weekend two years ago with a record $158.4 million. Warner Bros. has carved out a niche with this particular mid-July weekend. The studio followed “The Dark Knight” with a $77.8 million opening for “Harry Potter and the

Dispute over go-kart race track heads to Board of Adjustment BY SHELLEY SMITH

ROCKWELL — A six-month dispute over a go-kart race track behind Carolina Pipe Cleaning in Rockwell will be discussed during Rockwell’s Board of Adjustment meeting Tuesday. The meeting is a continuation of discussion from the July 7 meeting. The track was built behind Carolina Pipe Cleaning, 302 Klondale St., in February for use by its em-

ployees. However, adjacent homeowners claim the track is not in compliance with the town’s zoning ordinance and plan to have legal representation during Tuesday’s meeting. According to Chris Stiller, a homeowner whose property line begins about 300 feet from the corner of the race track, he and fellow neighbors who are sick of the noise submitted a petition to the town. The petition, which voices opposition to the track, has been signed

by about 61 neighboring residents. After the petition was presented to the town, Mark Cauble, owner of Carolina Pipe Cleaning, pursued a conditional use permit to allow the track to stay. However, once it got to the planning board, the board found that the track didn’t meet two criteria — the track must be at least 500 feet from any properties in a residential (R1) district and it has to be paved. According to Stiller, the planning board did not issue the permit.

Cauble then pursued a zoning permit for a conditional use structure. The conditional use structure — the track — was for employee use, and the town granted Cauble the permit, which is what Stiller and other neighbors are appealing. Stiller said if the board of adjustment does not grant their appeal, the next step is superior court. “Our attorney is basing his appeal on the fact that it's still a race track,” Stiller said. “In zoning laws, an accessory structure has to have

some kind of connection to the primary business that's on that lot.” Because of the disputes with permits and zoning, Rockwell Zoning Enforcement Officer Tim Linker said an initial stay order (cease and desist) was issued April 19 until the planning board meeting on May 3. A second stay order was issued July 8 until Tuesday’s meeting.

Fire station ignites fond memories

Right time to rent Hampton says during uncertain economic times people shift to renting

t the time of the East Rowan Class of 1969s 40th reunion in October 2009, I also saw the section of Old Concord Road where I grew up, as well as the section toward Salisbury. I saw the old building that once housed the South Salisbury Township Fire Department, just down MACK the rail WILLIAMS from spur that crosses Old Concord Road going to Badin. In the late 1950s through early 1960s, I would go along with my father when he would stop and visit his friend, Tommy Webb, who ran the fire station. Tommy had blond hair and reminded me a little bit of a certain German actor who appeared in World War II movies of the time, except,unlike the actor, Tommy always portrayed goodness, which wasn’t difficult for him — by portraying goodness Tommy was just portraying himself. While my father and Tommy talked, I would play on the fire engines, walking along the running board, and holding on to the railings in back where the hose was folded up. Sometimes, I would climb up and jump off the fire truck, landing on a nearby couch. Actually, that sort of action wouldn’t have been performed by a fireman (unless he were in trouble), but more likely by the would-be victim of a fire several stories up , jumping out of a window to land on a handheld “trampoline,” tightly grasped around the edges by the firemen below. There was a little snack store, entered by a door in the middle-front of the building. In the summer, this door would be open because there was no air conditioning. Visible through the door was the floor-model drink cooler. The glass drink bottles were assembled between metal racks covered over with icy water, being real ice water because of all of the floating ice in it.

Eddie Hampton has been building and renting houses for some 30 years. “You can’t stay in one thing,” Hampton says of diversifying his businesses. At present, he’s concentrating in the rental market. He owns several properties in the Brenner Avenue area. Hampton recently moved a house to a lot he had owned for 15 years at the corner of Brenner and South Merritt avenues. He also owns the duplex units next door and the house on the other side of those. He works closely with Julius Waggoner of Waggoner Realty, which manages the duplex rentals. “He thought the house would fit perfectly on the lot,” Hampton says. “New construction is pretty slow, so we’ve looked at this as a new opportunity.”

Scenic America honors Cleveland man for lifetime achievement

BRIEFS Vets of Foreign War to host benefit breakfast The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2031, 139 Jordan Lane., Statesville, will hold a benefit breakfast from 7 to 11 a.m. Saturday Aug. 7 The all-you-can eat breakfast will cost $5 and to-go orders may be called into the Post at 704-873-9126. All proceeds will benefit the Post building fund.

A Cleveland man has been honored for his work promoting the beauty of America’s roadways, communities and landscapes. Scenic America has given its lifetime achievement award to Charles F. Floyd a resident of Redmon Road. A former president of Scenic America, Floyd was honored FLOYD during a meeting in Washington, D.C. Floyd and his wife, Rebecca Floyd Barber, have spent decades restoring the Barber homeplace and farm. Charlie was on the forefront of the fight against billboard blight before most of us knew what it was,” Mary Tracy, president of Scenic America, said in a press release. “His continued enthusiasm for sharing his unparalleled knowledge of the billboard industry is invaluable to those of use in the sce-

nic conservation movement. Other members of Scenic America also praised Floyd for “not being afraid to expose the truth behind billboard bullies.” Floyd, a former professor of real estate at the University of Georgia, was one of the founders of Scenic America and served as its president from 1983-97. He has testified to congressional committees about the Highway Beautification Act on several occasions and served on the national advisory committee. Scenic America officials noted that Floyd has provided assistance and expertise on billboard issues to over 20 state and local governments and has authorized many articles and white papers on the billboard industry. He is currently working on the 10th edition of his book, “Real Estate Principles.” Others who have been honored with the lifetime award are Lady Bird Johnson, former first lady; Joseph R. Riley, former mayor of Charleston, S.C.


neighbors think it’s fine.” Cauble said the neighbors directly beside his shop and directly across the street are fine with the track. “I wanted a good safe place for my guys to run,” he said. “This was just a way for us to be around the shop and picnic, have barbecues with my men. “Stiller’s called the police on us twice. We’re all doing this in all good, family fun and shop fun, and he can’t handle it. We’re not bothering him.” Cauble said town board members have visited the track, sitting a block away, and have not heard the cars. But Stiller disagrees, and wants the racing to stop. “On April 11, a Sunday afternoon, I was sitting in my living room trying to watch television and this God awful racket started taking place,” Stiller said. “I went outside and I looked, and there were

around 60 people there, running 14 to 16 go carts at a time on this track. I couldn’t even hear my television inside with that going on.” Stiller said the police and town board members said there was nothing they could do about it. “That has been the story this whole time,” he said. “We are at wits end.” Cauble said he will comply with whatever decision is made by the town, but hopes he is able to keep the track. “My guys have all said, ‘You know what, Mark, we’ve done all we can do to have fun,’” Cauble said, even using stock motors that are not even as loud as a lawn mower. “The town has handled it better than expected.” The Rockwell Board of Adjustments meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Rockwell’s town hall, 202 E. Main St.

little snack shop. One of them was Pixy Stix. Pixy Stix are like a drinking straw, closed off on both ends and containing flavored powdered sugar, enjoyed by tearing off one end of the straw and pouring the sugar into the mouth. This was kind of like a B.C. Powder version of a candy bar. The powdery sugar treat entered the blood more quickly — like a headache powder — leading to a quicker burst of energy for children and greater difficulty for parents. One of my other favorites from the snack shop resembled the drink bottles in the drink cooler, only being much smaller and made of wax. They even came in their own little paper carrying carton, styled after the cartons for full-sized soft drinks, except they were the size which could be carried by a small hand. These drinks consisted of flavored liquids of different colors, the color showing through the translucent wax,

sort of giving color to the bottles also. A purple bottle would invariably taste like grape, a yellow like lemon, red like cherry taste and the green one like lime. After the little drink was consumed, some chewing of the wax like gum was possible. Even though gum was sometimes swallowed, I don’t think that the swallowing of this wax was advised. When I passed by the former site of the South Salisbury Township Fire Department in October 2009, it had the look of total abandonment. All of the doors, both of human width and firetruck width were tightly closed. Doors closed so tightly, with not even the slightest glimpse of the inside, serve as an enticement to the curiosity of the onlooker, but as to what is now contained in that old building, I have no curiosity or speculation. I know that it is empty, because its contents were relocated to my memory many years ago.

cellent neighborhood, and a very good investment.” Hampton says that many of his residents are V.A. employees. “We have excellent people here,” he says. The house, which was built in the 1950s, has new brick and restored hardwood oak floors in the two bedrooms and living area. “People like hardwood floors,” Hampton says. “It’s perceived as better quality.” Hampton put a vinyl tile in the kitchen. He’ll add a refrigerator, and there’s room for a washer and dryer here, too. The 900-square-feet house has one bath and great windows in all the rooms. The house has several window air-conditioning units and baseboard heat. “I was amazed how good a condition the house was in,” Hampton said. “It’s a good, solid house. It was an easy house to move.” He adds, “It’s a compact house. In this market, that’s

what people want.” Hampton’s properties have a one-year lease, although he says he has longterm residents in the neighborhood. “It’s harder to buy right now,” Hampton says of the uncertain economy. “The rental market is good.”

FROM 3a Cauble, who also plans to have a lawyer present during Tuesday’s meeting, said he created the riding area for the men who work for him “because of the economy and because morale is down.” “We’re staying in compliance with the city,” he said. “Whatever they decide, I’m good with it.” Cauble said he believes he is in compliance to the conditions with the accessory to the business permit. “They gave me conditions and I haven’t broken any of the conditions,” he said. “I felt like as long as I didn’t break any of those conditions, I’ll be fine. “His (Stiller’s) appeal doesn’t say I’m too loud, or I’m too dusty, it says he doesn’t want me there.

MEMORIES FROM 3a If this same method were used in the modern upright soft drink machines, a quantity of free-flowing ice water, along with ice, would be dispensed with the bottled soft drink. Back then, in addition to quenching one’s thirst, the hand and a good portion of the arm could be cooled on a hot summer day in that reach for the soda. I’ve sometimes wondered what the inside of a modern drink machine looks like, but in this model, “what you saw was what you got”. On the front of the old drink box was the stylized, attached bottle opener. I’m not sure, but I bet that one of those old floor-style drink coolers with its stylized bottle opener appears somewhere in some painting by Norman Rockwell. I remember a couple of items from the fire station’s

RENT FROM 3a He decided it would be more affordable to move an existing house than to build on the lot. It took Tommy Lang only an hour or so to move the house, which previously stood on the corner of Ackert Avenue and West Innes Street. Hampton’s grandsons, Hampton Query, 5, and Campbell Query, 3, who live in Hickory, were extremely excited to witness the event. Hampton removed the brick from the structure, made several renovations and recently completed landscaping. He estimates that the project is about 80 percent complete and that the house will be ready for occupants within a month. “I like this area,” Hampton says. “The V.A. is an important thing here.

Wake takes over as NC’s most populous CHARLOTTE (AP) — A state agency says Wake County has now passed Mecklenburg County to be the most populated county in the state. But Mecklenburg County leaders told The Charlotte Observer that the estimates from the N.C. Data Center may not be correct. The state agency estimates Wake County’s population at 920,307 while Mecklenburg’s population is 909,493. Wake County has several advantages. It is more than 300 square miles bigger and weathered the latest recession better.

Whigs and Tories of bygone days man was murdered in Buffalo Creek, North Carolina, because he was, or was mistaken for a Tory. Michael was a member of the Tory party. He would not fight the British during the Revolutionary War. In July 1777 there was an assessor named Michael Cresman. Sometime between July 1777 and Nov. 25, 1780 his murder was reported under the pretense that he was a Tory. It is said that Michael was murdered by a Capt. Starns of Rowan County. Other records show him involved in other activities in Rowan County. He must have been very out spoken in his beliefs and someone murdered him because of it. Michael and Elizabeth had two known children: Michael Jr. and George. Michael Jr. and George both married women by the name of Elizabeth. The maiden name of George’s wife was Hagler. On Dec. 15, 1787 Michael and Elizabeth sold to Michael’s younger brother, George 217 ½ acres, part of which included the grant to Michael Sr. in 1765. On the same date they sold 223 ½ acres to Andrew Gruse. By 1800 both Michael Jr. and George had apparently sold everything and were in Lancaster County South Carolina. Eventually the entire family moved to Christian County, Kentucky. There part of the families split up

tems were joined by an act of the state legislature. Over the years, the united school district tried to integrate in all sorts of ways. Students were bused into town from county neighborhoods. All sixth graders were sent to four downtown centers. A network of magnet schools was established, though by the 1980s, most of those bused were minorities from downtown. By the 1990s, the federal courts began issuing rulings discouraging forced racial integration. So at the beginning of 2000, in an effort to head off a lawsuit, the board adopted new diversity standards, replacing race with income. Under the policy, the goal was to have no school with more than 40 percent of its students on free or reduced lunch, or more than a quarter scoring below grade level. With 140,000 students in 160 schools, Wake County was the largest of about 70 districts across the nation using socio-economic status to maintain diversity. The system was considered a model for those looking for a way around racebased assignment scheme rejected by the courts. “It (the Wake County system) really was a beacon, a flag around which more and more people were rallying as they saw the positive effects of this,” says sociologist Gerald Grant, a professor emeritus at Syracuse University and author of the book “Hope and Despair in the American City: Why There are No Bad Schools in Raleigh.”

The Charlotte Observer reported that scanner traffic indicated the missing were a teenager and a younger child. Officials would not confirm their ages.

bitten by a shark off a North Carolina beach and needed 40 stitches. Mike Parker told The StarNews of Wilmington that his daughter Kendall was in waist-deep water Saturday at Wrightsville Beach when she felt something bite her arm. Parker says a doctor who helped stitch up the wound says it appeared to come from a 4- or 5-foot-long sand tiger shark. Parker says his daughter was released from the hospital, but might need surgery to repair a damaged tendon.

Wong’s lawyers say Blanton was pulling people over without a reason to look for drugs. Blanton told dispatchers he was pulling Wong over because the licenses tags on his truck and trailer did not match, but the trooper appears to have read the tags wrong.

new board majority, says it’s the NAACP and others who are “trying to play with the old ‘60s playbook for rules for radicals” to preserve a policy that is no longer needed, and wasn’t working anyway. “This isn’t 1960,” he says. It’s not. But in 1960, when desegregation first came to the Raleigh city schools, there was no pitched battle. In September of that year, 7-year-old William Craig Campbell — whose janitor father was head of the local NAACP chapter — braved a gantlet of spit and epithets and walked into the Murphy Public School. Despite petitions by 400 parents opposing desegregation as “not in the best interests” of white children, Campbell remained; one day, he would become mayor of Atlanta. Raleigh city schools integrated gradually, and relatively quietly. Wake County was another story. Between 1968 and 1976, Raleigh’s white population dropped by 11 percent, and this “white flight” turned areas just outside the Beltline encircling Raleigh into what one educator called “trailer city.” A 1968 editorial in The News & Observer warned that Raleigh was in danger of becoming a “little Chicago ... with hostile black consciousness and separatism growing with resegregation.” A proposal to merge the two districts was put to a referendum in 1973, and was defeated by a 3-1 margin. But three years later, the two sys-

Fear of ‘resegregation’ fuels unrest RALEIGH (AP) — In the annals of desegregation, Raleigh is barely a footnote. Integration came relatively peacefully to the North Carolina capital. There was no “stand in the schoolhouse door,” no need of National Guard escorts or even a federal court order. Nearly 50 years passed — mostly uneventfully, at least until a new school board majority was elected last year on a platform supporting community schools. The result has been turmoil. The superintendent resigned in protest. A coalition of residents and civil rights groups filed suit. Months of rallies, news conferences and candlelight vigils against the feared “resegregation” of the state’s largest school district culminated in the recent arrests of four activists for refusing to vacate board members’ chairs. Locals are lecturing Northern transplants about the Jim Crow past; white school board members are quoting Brown v. Board of Education to the NAACP. “We’re not going to sit idly by while they turn the clock back on the blood, sweat and tears and wipe their feet on the sacrifices of so many that have enabled us to get to the place we are today,” says the Rev. William J. Barber II, head of the state NAACP chapter and one of the four protesters arrested for trespassing at the June 15 board meeting. But John Tedesco, part of a

and moved to either Illinois or Alabama. The family was heavily involved with the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints and many moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. In the article by Carole Cook, many of the names are still in the German dialect, much different from today. For instance the name Gruse was changed to Cruse. The article written by Carole had much more detail in it, mainly about the Cook Family, than I have in this article. This family intrigued me because of the murder of Michael since he was affiliated with the Tory party. There was another Tory murdered in the same area about the same time. Rowan and Mecklenburg were well known for the down fall of the British rule in this country. It was said they hit a hornets nest here, Murder for that reason is very unusual today in this country, although it was not in those days. History tells us where we have been and where we could be, unless we allow others of that category get in control. It is what makes history so interesting. Thank goodness we are more civilized and compassionate today.



the area, we suspected he might be buried at St. Johns in an unmarked grave or one that is illegible. We were about to exhaust our search. My next place to look was the Cabarrus County Heritage book. There we hit pay dirt. A very detailed article submitted by Carole Irene Chrismon Cook, of North Provo, Utah, filled in what we needed to know. Notice the change in the spelling of the name. Michel Christman Sr. was her great-greatgreat-grandfather. According to her he was in the area by Sept. 3, 1761. On April 6 1765, Michael Christman Sr. was granted 340 acres on the north branches of Dutch Buffalo Creek, which included his and Henry Sights’ improvements. Land grant improvements meant, they had to clear a certain number of acres, usually three or four acres each year, in order to keep the grant. He acquired an additional 200 acres on April 18, 1767 and 125 acres on Aug. 7, 1767 adjoining his property. On June 17, 1769 Michael and his wife Elizabeth sold the 125 acres to the Rev. Samuel Suther. From that transaction his neighbors were listed. When I eventually checked the Internet, a diary of a Mr. Clark, who was a brother of George Rodgers Clark (of the Lewis & Clark) records that Michael Chris-

ecently while working in the History Room at the Kannapolis Library, I had a visit from a couple, Jon Robert and DeNell Chrisman McBride, from Arizona researching a relative, who had received a grant for land in 1765. Granted by patent of King George III, under seal of William Lyon, LT. Governor. His NORRIS was DEARMON name Michel Christman from Germany. Records that far back are very scarce. They had found a map of the area, which showed the land to be 340 acres south of the Granville Grant Line in Cabarrus County. At that time the land was still part of Mecklenburg County. Another piece of information showed the territory was recorded in Wilmington. They had also been to the St. Johns Church archives to try to find any burial records. No luck there. The first thing for us to do was to check census records. Nothing could be found by that name. Then we searched our cemetery records. Nothing there either. Since the land was bordering the Rowan County line north of Rimertown, and the Germans had settled in

“I’m afraid we’re going to have to let you go.” You never thought you’d hear those words, but suddenly you find yourself without a job. You’re the latest victim of the economic recession.

You are not alone. Millions of people have been laid off in the past, and millions will face unemployment in the future. Believe it or not, many people right around you understand exactly what you’re going through. Immediately after a layoff, most people feel some combination of anger, embarrassment, guilt, fear, isolation and despair. It’s not surprising. But after a job loss, you’ll be in a stronger position if you act according to your principles, not your feelings. If you allow your emotions to take control, you probably will spend your days paralyzed by depression. You have the ability to take control of your attitude and action plan. You can do whatever is necessary to become employed once again, provided you do not give in to negative thoughts and destructive attitudes. So where do you start? Everyone should have a plan of action in case of a layoff: 1. Make a written plan. Seeing your strategy in writing will help you focus your thoughts and formulate your

dreams. 2. Know your rights. Even if you’ve been fired, take time to find out your rights. There may be company provisions to which you are entitled. Sign up for unemployment benefits right away if you qualify. 3. Develop a coping plan. Live by a schedule as rigid as you did while you were employed. Get up at the same time every morning, and work as diligently at finding employment as you did doing your old job. 4. Make the money last. You may be tempted to use your severance pay, your savings or other lump sums of cash to pay off debts or splurge on a trip to make yourself feel better. Don’t do it. You don’t know how long the money you have will have to last. 5. Pursue new opportunities. You may look back and see your notice of layoff as the pivotal point that allowed you to combine your life’s passions with your employment. A new freedom has been thrust upon you. This may allow you to change course and do what you might never have thought possible. 6. Have faith. There’s no doubt you eventually will find the employer who is looking for you. In the meantime, don’t lose your sense of humor. Don’t ever doubt your worth, abilities and skills. And don’t ever give up. I can’t wait to hear about the next chapter in your life.

er, a Daughter and the Town that Raised Them” (Hyperion), is available in bookstores.


Dear Amy: I read your column every day. A recent letter from “Worried Son” and your advice to him really hit home. I wish I had read this column about 10 years ago when my — until then — model stepfather started accusing my mother, the love of his life, of infidelity, of hiding money from him and the like. My mother kept quiet and I had no idea about what was happening since I live in the U.S. and she lives in Europe. At the end of one visit she broke down and showed me her bruised arms. My stepfather had started hitting her. He ended up in a psychiatric ward for extensive testing. He returned home and spent the rest of his years in a somewhat demented but harmless state. Your advice to the Worried Son to seek medical evaluation for their father and to protect their mother was right on. My mother was lucky to find a niece who took her in when she feared for her life and helped her get my stepfather to the hospital for evaluation. — Grateful Reader

Dear Keeping: You should assume your relationship with your son and his wife is solid enough that you can make a request or correction without bringing on an estrangement. Disrespecting a family member’s faith (or lack thereof) is absolutely beyond the pale. If this happens again, you should respond directly to her, “I don’t think it’s necessary to put down a person’s religion. I don’t do that and it bothers me when you do. Maybe it would be best if we just agreed not to discuss it. Can we do that?” Ending with a question should prompt an affirmative answer from her.

Dear Reader: This is frightening. As I told “Worried Son,” whenever someone’s behavior changes radically, you should assume a physi-


Dear Hurt: A big brother riding you about not cleaning up the kitchen, or saying he’s smarter than you, is not verbal abuse. People have different qualities, strengths and weaknesses. Your brother might have a better GPA, but you might be a compassionate friend (he sounds lacking in the compassion department). He might be good at chemistry but you might be good at languages, art or geometry. Your GPA would put you at the tippy top in my household (and most households). Words do hurt. But they hurt less if you make a healthy choice to let the stuff roll off you that you know isn’t true. Your parents should nip this in the bud, but you shouldn’t leave your brother in charge of your self-esteem. Evidently you never learned the comeback to petty sibling badmouthing. The next time he calls you lazy or dumb, you say, “I know you are, but what am I?”

that sometimes in conversation with me, she will make mean-spirited remarks about our religion. These remarks are unnecessary and uncalled for. My son adores his wife and to keep the peace and avoid estranging him, I don’t say anything to either of them. How do you think I should handle this? — Keeping the Peace


Dear Amy: I’m a high school student and feel like I am being verbally abused by my brother, who constantly tells me that I don’t do things right. For example, he criticizes me for not putting dishes away after I am done with them. Whenever he criticizes me, he says things like, “You’re lazy.” Or he’ll say, “If you continue to make ASK these choices AMY then you probably won’t have the greatest path you can have in life.” Whenever we get into an argument, he says he’s smarter than I am because I have a GPA of 3.85 and his is 4.3 (he’s taken AP classes). His words hurt me and my self-esteem suffers, even if I know he doesn’t really mean it. I do believe he loves me for who I am, but this bothers me. I don’t know how to handle this problem. — Hurt Sister

My Turn: Donald Schumacher

The dis-united state of America

Citizens are the losers with sweepstakes ban Internet sweepstakes, which I consider creative genius, have been declared lawful by numerous trial and appellate judges in North Carolina since 2005. Specifically, courts have held that since there exists a finite pool of entries and the attainment of any prize is not predicated whatsoever on what a sweepstakes participant might do or not do, internet sweepstakes do not constitute a game of chance, video poker or any other gambling device. Somewhere well past midnight on July 9, the General Assembly — for no good reason — and in apparent ignorance of the economic situation which currently exists in North Carolina (the state budget and all!) — passed HB80, which purports to make internet sweepstakes illegal. These businesses employ thousands of North Carolinians, obtain the necessary licenses, pay all applicable taxes and conduct themselves as legitimate business entities in accordance with all laws. Apparently, our legislators failed to consider rigorous regulation of internet cafes and the vast sums of money (estimated to be well towards half a billion dollars annually) that North Carolina could have easily obtained. HB80, as it now sits awaiting Governor Perdue’s signature for enactment into law, is, without question, the biggest missed opportunity in recent memory for North Carolina taxpayers and out state budget. Quidam benefice? In other words — who benefits from the passage of this law? Not North Carolina citizens and taxpayers. — Cindy H. Fraser

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be) “Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.” — Kahlil Gibran

’ve written many “Letters to the Editor” over the years, perhaps far too many. My purpose has been to do what little I can to try to save this country of ours by showing many of the ridiculous things going on in our corrupt federal government and how our politicians (both parties) are doing all they can to destroy it. Obviously I can’t save it alone, I'm not that arrogant, but keeping silent when things are wrong means that I accept it. This I cannot do. Someone once said, “Divided we fall, united we stand.” Never before, at least in my memory, has this nation been so divided. And our leadership is doing nothing to bring us together. In fact, it’s doing all it can to divide us further. Some of us remember how we all came together during World War II and after the Sept. 11, 2001, disaster. We proudly waved our country'’ flag, we served in the military, we showed patriotism, we respected each other, we honored our heroes and our God and we prayed in schools without the fear of being imprisoned, fined or persecuted by left wing radicals. Our Constitution is being challenged at every turn by entities like the anti-American ACLU which do more for Gitmo detainees, NAMBLA and our enemies than they do for us. They see religion as a scourge on mankind and they are doing everything to eliminate religion. They even go after the Boy Scouts if they use public places. In short, they divide us at every turn and our government does nothing. Some judges even make de-uniting decisions and create their own laws in violation of our Constitution. They give felons and sex offenders light sentences or simply probation. Racial extremists expand racism by doing just plain dumb things that cause some otherwise all loving people to become racist. This is pure nonsense! The Department of Justice recently refused to prosecute three men who harassed voters in Philadelphia. This action by the DOJ will surely create more racists. So dumb! Why do they do this? Our government, rather doing what it’s supposed to do to protect its citizens, brings a lawsuit against a state that is simply trying to protect itself from criminals, drug dealers and terrorists from entering their state and our country. Is this a uniting action by government? How about ongoing government spending? Do you believe taxing us to pay for pork barrel projects, medical expenses for illegal aliens and now talk of giving 11 million illegals amnesty pulls this nation together? No way! It divides us further. Our country is falling apart, morals and ethics have taken a back seat to those who want the freedom to do everything and anything they please. God's Ten Commandments mean nothing to the radicals who are getting their way little by little protected by government. Today, the minority rules over the majority. How did this happen? The government let it happen. For our children, grandchildren and the unborn, I have to apologize for the mess you will inherit through no fault of your own. The government is robbing you now of the ability to achieve your own happiness. Perhaps, God willing, we'll see a return to a united country where we respect each other, help one another without fear of being tramped on for our humble, ethical and moral beliefs. It’s indeed a shame our country has fallen so far. People can’t find jobs; the government sent them overseas. We’re going to be taxed more and more; the government can’t stop its spending. It’s now spending 66 percent of our GNP, and we’re trillions in debt, most held by enemies. What’s our future? Our government can’t fix the problems; it’s too divided. So it’s up to us, all of us, to come together and replace those in Washington and Raleigh with folks who will do the job we pay them for. This November provides an excellent opportunity to start to turn things around. I hope we can take advantage of it by electing the right people who will serve us, not themselves. Now I know some of you will criticize me for what I’ve written. That’s OK, it’s your right to do so. If you do, please do it with some respect. I want the best for you, also. • • • Donald Schumacher lives in Salisbury.



Regarding Richard Roberts’ July 14 letter: Mr. Roberts apparently either didn’t read or understand the Pitts column I referred to in my earlier letter. The thrust was that extremists who begin statements with “We all know” without any substantiating evidence are simply lying. Pitts’ last sentence was key — “Prove it.” This is where Mr. Roberts and his fellow travelers fall down; they don’t back their opinions with facts. Mr. Roberts claims to think and speak for himself, but he sounds like the fellow travelers of the Tea Party. Coincidence? I doubt it. As for taxes, the fiscally irresponsible tax cuts of 2001, which benefited primarily the wealthy, will disappear next year. President Obama proposed retaining the cuts for those earning under $100,000 ($250,000 for married). Interestingly, those tax cuts helped turn a $236B surplus in FY 2000 into a $157B deficit two years later, the first in a string of eight consecutive deficits. Instead of asking us to pay for a war, Bush/Cheney tried Lyndon Johnson’s “guns and butter” approach, this time by funding the war with debt from our friends, the Chinese! What was the real effect of those tax cuts? A rough estimate, based on the 2000 and 2009 tax tables suggests a family of four earning $50,000 might have seen a drop in their withholding big enough to buy lunch every Saturday for Mom and Dad. Of the 2 percent of households earning over $250,000, their drop in taxes would range from $10,000 to over $200,000. Their average income of $415,000 (in 2008) would seem to be enough to live comfortable, even without the Bush/Cheney tax cut. Bottom line, we need to address a multi-billion dollar deficit. Cutting taxes only increased it, and the very limited available reductions in spending won’t either. We need to both increase revenue and reduce expenses; that’s called financial responsibility. — John P. Burke

“The truth shall make you free”

Dog days in Washington ASHINGTON — When Congress stays in session during the dog days of a Washington summer, rebellion is always bubbling just beneath the surface. And sure enough, it erupted at a caucus of House Democrats one night last week, triggered by an injudicious comment from White House press secretary Robert Gibbs. Gibbs made the terrible mistake of affirming what all the Democrats DAVID know to be true, BRODER namely, that the combination of high unemployment, oil pollution in the Gulf of Mexico and growing casualties in Afghanistan has so aggravated the voters that control of the House is seriously at issue. Gibbs was denounced for telling television interviewers that the 39 House seats Republicans would need to take over to become a majority are certainly in play. For his candor, Gibbs was roundly roasted by some of those who could well be the victims of such an upheaval. The president himself hied up to Capitol Hill to make amends, but the underlying ferment remains. One White House aide told me, “They (the House members) really hate the Senate, but we made it easy for them to take it out on us.” The fact is that the Democrats are out of sorts — frustrated by the effectiveness of the Republican opposition that makes it so hard to pass bills in the Senate, and battered too by the inability of Washington to solve any of the big problems facing the country. They were greeted on their


The fact is that the Democrats are out of sorts — frustrated by the effectiveness of the Republican opposition that makes it so hard to pass bills in the Senate ... return from their Independence Day holiday with a Washington Post-ABC News poll reporting that voters think, by a margin of 51 percent to 43 percent, that it is more important to have a Republican majority in the next Congress to act as a check on President Obama's policies, rather than a Democratic majority to support him. Unless Obama can turn that psychology around, the Democrats could well be on their way to another 1994-style defeat. I was sent an advance copy of another poll, this one done for the Third Way, a leading moderate think tank, by the Benenson Strategy Group, which has worked for past Obama campaigns. It suggests one possible way of shifting the odds. This rests on reviving, one more time, the favorite Obama tactic of 2008: Run against George Bush, even though he is not on the ballot. Unprompted, only 25 percent of voters in this survey said they think that if Republicans regain a majority, it will signal a return to Bush’s economic policies. By comparison, 65 percent say a Republican Congress would promote “a new economic agenda that is different” from Bush’s.

The difference is dramatic when Bush enters the equation. Obama’s economic agenda is preferred over Bush’s by 49 percent to 34 percent. But a generic conservative approach, pitting a leader “who will start from scratch with new ideas to shrink government, cut taxes and grow the economy” beats one committed to sticking with Obama’s policies, 64 percent to 30 percent. In the absence of any clear Republican platform for the midterm election like the 1994 Contract with America, it is hard to say what Republicans would actually do with a congressional majority. We know what they have voted against — all the major bills Obama has sponsored to cure the Great Recession and regulate Wall Street and rework the health care system. In a memo accompanying the poll, the Third Way authors claim they know that Republicans would echo Bush’s approach of cutting taxes and minimizing government regulation. They argue that by labeling a future Republican Congress as a Bush Congress, Democrats can beat the opposition back. But I am not so certain. One question in the Third Way poll asked which path voters prefer to jump-start privatesector job creation and economic growth — new government investments or cutting taxes on business? Cutting taxes on business won 54 percent to 32 percent. This sounds to me like Ronald Reagan returning to whomp Barack Obama. Maybe all the Republicans have to do is to reject the Bush label and bring Reagan back for an encore. • • • David Broder’s e-mail address is

Gunmen massacre 17 at gathering in Mexico a local newspaper came under fire. A pregnant woman was wounded in the attack on the offices of Noticias de El Sol de la Laguna. Across northern Mexico, there have been increasing reports of mass shootings at parties, bars and rehab clinics. In the worst such massacre this year, gunmen raided a drug-rehab center in the northern city of Chihuahua and killed 19 people last month. In January, gunmen barged into a private party in the border city of Ciudad Juarez and killed 15, many of them high school or university students. Relatives say the January attack was a case of mistaken identity, while state officials claim someone at the party was targeted, although they have not said who it was. The killings in Torreon came three days after the first successful car bombing by drug cartels, an attack that introduced a new threat to Mexico’s raging drug war. The FBI has sent a small team to the crime scene to offer technical assistance to the Mexican investigators, FBI spokeswoman Andrea Simmons said. She did not immediately offer more details. Mexican investigators have not said what type of explosive was used.

Suicide bombers kill at least 48 in Iraq BAGHDAD (AP) — A suicide bomber ripped through a line of anti-al-Qaida Sunni fighters waiting to collect their paychecks near an Iraqi military base as nearly 50 people were killed in violence west of Baghdad. The attack is the deadliest this year against the groups that turned against the terror network amid an apparent campaign by insurgents to undermine confidence in the government security forces and their allies. The attacks on the Awakening Council members highlighted the daunting security challenges the country faces as the U.S. works to withdraw all combat troops in Iraq. The first attack Sunday morning by a single bomber with an explosive vest killed at least 45 people and wounded more than 40 at a checkpoint near a military base in the mostly Sunni district of Radwaniya southwest of Baghdad. Some 150 Sunni fighters had lined up to collect their paychecks when the bomber struck, according to witnesses.

Drug-gang members detonated the bomb after luring federal police and paramedics to an intersection in Ciudad Juarez by shooting a bound man dressed in police uniform and calling in a false report of a wounded officer. Three people were killed, including a federal officer and a private doctor who had rushed to the scene to help. Officials say 24,800 people have been killed in drug-gang violence since President Felipe Calderon declared war on the cartels in December 2006, deploying thousands of federal police to fight traffickers. On Saturday, four municipal police officers patrolling in a truck were ambushed and killed in the Pacific coast resort city of Acapulco, state police said. A threatening message was scrawled on the truck’s windshield. The government attributes much of the rise in violence to infighting among drug gangs, whose leadership has been splintered after the arrest of kingpins. Federal police said in a statement Sunday that they have arrested 1,626 people suspected of belonging to the command structures of Mexico’s drug gangs since Calderon launched his offensive.

Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha boarded a small military jet serving as Air Force One and took off from the Bar Harbor airport, returning to the White House by midday. The Obamas spent much of their time hiking and biking in Acadia National Park. They also played tennis, went boating and enjoyed the food in the resort town of Bar Harbor. From the moment they arrived on Friday, it was clear they were determined to make the most of their time. The Obamas set the tone right away, motorcading straight from the airport to a park bike trail for an hour of cycling. What followed was a whirl of outings, as their motorcade crisscrossed Mount Desert Island. They went boating on Frenchman Bay, hiked on a park nature trail, played tennis, hung out at the pool, toured a lighthouse, had lunch and dinner at harborside restaurants and — of course — stopped for ice cream. Even their dog Bo had fun, playfully wrapping up a Coast Guard lighthouse keeper in the leash Sasha, 9, was holding.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A series of strong aftershocks in Alaskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aleutian Islands region Sunday followed a powerful earthquake that shook the remote area, but officials said there were no immediate reports of damage or injury. There also was no threat of a tsunami from any of the quakes. The U.S. Geological Survey said the initial 6.7-magnitude temblor struck at 9:56 p.m. Saturday and was centered in the Bering Sea about 155 miles southwest of Dutch Harbor. The quake hit about 21 miles beneath the seabed. USGS geophysicist Rafael Abreu said there were at least 11 aftershocks, including one occurring at 11:48 a.m. Sunday that had a 5.8 preliminary magnitude. He said that magnitude was still under review and could change. The West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center showed a 6.2 magnitude for the same aftershock, which was felt in the tiny community of Nikolski, about 115 miles southwest of Dutch Harbor. The initial, 6.7-magnitude earthquake was felt in both Dutch Harbor and nearby Unalaska, the nearest communities of any size to the epicenter. Police in Unalaska, situated just across a bay from Dutch Harbor, said they had no reports of damage or injury.



PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Mexico (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Gunmen stormed a party in northern Mexico on Sunday and massacred 17 people, authorities said. The assailants arrived at the gathering in the city of Torreon in several cars and opened fire without saying a word, the Coahuila state Attorney Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office said in statement. At least 18 people were wounded. Several of the victims were young and some were women, but their identities and ages had not yet been determined. Television footage showed the patio of the house streaked with bloodstains and white plastic chairs overturned beneath a party tent decorated with pictures of snowmen. Police found more than 120 bullet casings at the scene, most of them from .223-caliber weapons. Investigators had no suspects or information on a possible motive. Coahuila is among several northern states that has seen a spike in drug-related violence that authorities attribute to a fight between the Gulf cartel and its former enforcers, known as the Zetas. In May, gunmen killed eight people at a bar in Torreon. Later that month, a television station and the offices of

Report criticizes hasty dealership shutdowns

When he and his family were attending World Hope Worship Center on Mooresville Road, Meade wrote some of the dramas performed for the church’s annual Hallelujah House — a Christian alternative to traditional Halloween activities.

WELL FROM 1A place,” said Daniel Keeney, president of a Dallas-based public relations firm. The government wants to eliminate any chance of making matters worse, while BP is loath to lose the momentum it gained the moment it finally halted the leak, Keeney said. “They want to project being on the same team, but they have different end results that benefit each,” he said. Oil would have to be released under Allen’s plan, which would ease concerns that the capped reservoir might force its way out through another route. Those concerns stem from pressure readings in the cap that have been lower than expected. Scientists still aren’t sure whether the pressure readings mean a leak elsewhere in the well bore, possibly deep down in bedrock, which could make the seabed unstable. Oil would be have to be released into the water to relieve pressure and allow crews to hook up the ships, BP and Allen have said. So far, there have been no signs of a leak. “We’re not seeing any problems at this point with the shut-in,” Suttles said at a Sunday morning briefing. Allen said later Sunday that scientists and engineers would continue to evaluate and monitor the cap through acoustic, sonar and seismic readings. They’re looking to determine whether low pressure readings mean that more oil than expected poured into the Gulf of Mexico since the BPleased Deepwater Horizon rig exploded April 20, killing 11 people and touching off one of America’s worst environment crises. “While we are pleased that no oil is currently being released into the Gulf of Mexico and want to take all appropriate action to keep it that

way, it is important that all decisions are driven by the science,” Allen said in a news release. “Ultimately, we must ensure no irreversible damage is done which could cause uncontrolled leakage from numerous points on the sea floor.” Both Allen and BP have said they don’t know how long the trial run will continue. It was set to end Sunday afternoon, but the deadline — an extension from the original Saturday cutoff — came and went with no word on what’s next. After little activity Sunday, robots near the well cap came to life around the time of the cutoff. It wasn’t clear what they were doing, but bubbles started swirling around as their robotic arms poked at the mechanical cap. To plug the busted well, BP is drilling two relief wells, one of them as a backup. The company said work on the first one was far enough along that officials expect to reach the broken well’s casing, or pipes, deep underground by late this month. The subsequent job of jamming the well with mud and cement could take days or a few weeks. It will take months, or possibly years for the Gulf to recover, though cleanup efforts continued and improvements in the water could be seen in the days since the oil stopped flowing. Somewhere between 94 million and 184 million gallons have spilled into the Gulf, according to government estimates. The spill has prevented many commercial fishermen from their jobs, though some are at work with the cleanup. Some boat captains were surprised and angry to learn that the money they make from cleanup work will be deducted from the funds they would otherwise receive from a $20 billion compensation fund set up by BP. The fund’s administrator, Kenneth Feinberg, told The Associated Press on Sunday

that if BP pays fishermen wages to help skim oil and perform other cleanup work, those wages will be subtracted from the amount they get from the fund. Longtime charter boat captain Mike Salley said he didn’t realize BP planned to deduct those earnings, and he doubted many other captains knew, either. “I’ll keep running my boat,” he said Sunday on a dock in Orange Beach, Ala., before heading back into the Gulf to resupply other boats with boom to corral the oil. “What else can I do?”

35 killed in India train crash CALCUTTA, India (AP) — A speeding express train collided with a passenger train at a station in eastern India early Monday, mangling the carriages and killing at least 35 people, railway police said. The crash happened about 2 a.m. when the Uttarbanga Express slammed into the stationary Bananchal Express as it was leaving the platform at Sainthia station, about 125 miles (200 kilometers) north of Calcutta. Television footage showed twisted metal. The force of the crash was so intense the roof of one car flew into the air and landed on an overpass above the tracks. Local residents climbed through the debris

searching for survivors. A railway police officer said 35 bodies were recovered and more appeared to be trapped in the wreckage. The officer spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Accidents are common on India’s sprawling rail network, one of the world’s largest, with most blamed on poor maintenance.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Treasury Department failed to consider the economic fallout when it told General Motors and Chrysler to quickly shutter many dealerships as part of governmentled bankruptcies, a federal watchdog found. A report released Sunday by the special inspector general for the government’s bailout program raised questions about whether the Obama administration’s auto task force considered the job losses from the closings while pressuring the companies to reduce costs. Treasury didn’t show why the cuts were “either necessary for the sake of the companies’ economic survival or prudent for the sake of the nation’s economic recovery,” said the audit by Neil Barofsky, the special inspector general for the Troubled Asset Relief Program, the $787 billion stimulus program known as TARP. “Treasury made a series of decisions that may have substantially contributed to the accelerated shuttering of thousands of small businesses,” investigators said. Those decisions resulted in “potentially adding tens of thousands of workers to the already lengthy unemployment rolls — all based on a theory and without sufficient consideration of the decisions’ broader economic impact,” the report said. Obama administration officials said they strongly disagreed with the findings and said the audit focused solely on one element of a painful restructuring.

Oosthuizen’s arrival loud and clear BY DOUG FERGUSON Associated Press

Louis oosthuizen holds the claret jug after winning the British open.

Rowan falters on road

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — Louis Oosthuizen walked over the Swilcan Bridge toward a victory that was never in doubt Sunday at St. Andrews, another big moment in sports for South Africa. This celebration, though, carried a different tune. The drone of vuvuzelas, all the rage at the World Cup, was replaced by the skirl of bagpipes coming from behind the Royal & Ancient clubhouse. For the 27-year-old South African, the sound could not have been sweeter.

With a performance that rivaled the dominance of Tiger Woods at the home of golf 10 years ago, Oosthuizen led over the final 48 holes and blew away the field by seven shots to capture the British Open. “To win an Open championship is special,” Oosthuizen said. “But to win it at St. Andrews ... it’s something you dream about.” The timing could not have been better — one week after South Africa concluded a wildly popular World Cup, and the day Nelson Mandela celebrated his 92nd birthday. “It felt a bit special, really,” he said. “When I walked down 18, I was think-

ing about his birthday.” By then, the hard work was done. Oosthuizen (WUHST’-hy-zen) made only two bogeys over the final 35 holes in a strong wind that swept across the Old Course. He closed with a 1-under 71 for a seven-shot victory over Lee Westwood, who was never in the game. The only challenge came from Paul Casey, who got within three shots after the eighth hole, then drove the green on the par-4 ninth. Oosthuizen answered by hitting driver onto the green and knocking in a 50-foot eagle putt to restore his cushion.




KERNERSVILLE — There were no rain Kernersville 7 delays on Rowan 4 Sunday night, but there were two pain delays as Rowan County American Legion players watched Kernersville’s Garrett Robinson and Corey McKinney circle the bases after swatting home runs. Hayden Untz and Matt Miller launched homers for Rowan (3011), but Kernersville knotted the bestMILLER of-five Area III championship series at East Forsyth High with a 7-4 victory. Kernersville (20-13) hasn’t lost at home in the playoffs. “Kernersrville’s a really good team,” Untz said. “It looks like we’re very even. Could be a great series.” Game 3 is at Newman Park tonight. Rowan will send righth a n d e r Thomas Allen (4-0) to the hill. Kevin Parrish (4-1) and Shane Dickerson (32) are potential starters for KernUNTZ ersville. The beginning was basically the end for Rowan in Game 2. Kernersville scored five times in the bottom of the first inning against Rowan southpaw Zack Simpson. “We got off on the right foot this time,” said McKinney, who plays all over the diamond for Kernersville. “After that first inning, we never looked back.” Rowan coach Jim Gantt agreed. Simpson managed to hang in there until the seventh and enjoyed three 1-2-3 innings, but the damage was done while fans were still settling into their seats. “We needed more intensity at the start,” Gantt said. “We can’t come out there just flipping it up there to good hitters like they’ve got. Zack settled in, but that first inning was the biggest difference in the game.” Baseball is a beautiful game partly because of the redemption opportunities it offers. Kernersville DH Garrett Robinson, who will be on Catawba’s team next spring, had a forgettable Game 1, striking out four times and committing an error. Robinson put that misery behind him, and his two-out, three-run homer on a first-inning fastball gave Kernersville right-hander Pete Schultz a quick 5-0 cushion. Robinson’s shot proved the biggest blow of Game 2.

Eidson wins friendly final BY BRET STRELOW

Ronnie Eidson arrived at the 15th tee box following a bogey that left him with only a 1-up lead on Keith Dorsett in the championship match of the 32nd annual Horace Billings Rowan Amateur. Eidson’s errant drive hit a tree but received a fortunate bounce and landed in the fairway. The two players laughed, and Dorsett high-fived his opponent. “I got kind of the same break on the very first hole,” Dorsett said. “He pretty much returned the favor.” Dorsett has a long-standing friendship with the 57-year-old Eidson, who earned his second Rowan Amateur title in three years by claiming a 2-and-1 victory Sunday at Corbin Hills. The match was square before Eidson made birdies at the 12th and 13th holes. He gave a shot back at the next one but clinched the win at No. 17. Bret Strelow/saLisBUrY post

Intimidators stop Lakewood From staff reports

The Kannapolis Intimidators swept a Sunday doubleheader against Lakewood at Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium, winning 4-1 and 4-0 in two seven-inning games. Ryan Hamme and Kevin Dubler hit homers in the opener, while Daniel Wagner (South Rowan) went 2-for-3. Andre Rienzo pitched a four-hitter in the nightcap. Hamme and Tyler Saladino had two hits each.  Craige Lyerly (East Rowan, Catawba) was sent down from short-season A ball to rookie ball, but the news isn’t all bad. Lyerly should get significantly more playing time with the Gulf Coast Rays. He had a double and a triple on Saturday.

Associated Press

CLEVELAND — Jhonny Peralta’s flyball sent Detroit’s Ryan Raburn crashing through a bullpen door for an inside-the-park homer, and Jeanmar Gomez won his major league debut as the Cleveland Indians beat the Tigers 7-2 victory Sunday to complete a four-game sweep. Gomez (1-0), called up from Triple-A Columbus to make a spot start, allowed two unearned runs over seven innings. The right-hander was staked to a 3-0 lead in the first inning when Peralta legged out his seventh homer of the season. With runners on first and second and two outs, Peralta hit a 1-1 pitch from Andy Oliver (0-4) toward the Cleveland bullpen. Centerfielder Raburn tried for a leaping catch, but tumbled through the bullpen door. The ball caromed off the wall and by the time left fielder Brennan Boesch could retrieve it, Peralta, one of the slowest players on Cleveland’s roster, was chugging around the bases. Yankees 9, Rays 5 NEW YORK— Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees knocked around All-Star starter David Price, overcoming an early injury to Andy Pettitte with brilliant work by the bullpen. Robinson Cano hit a two-run triple, Jorge Posada a two-run double and Rodriguez added his 598th home run for the Yankees. Rangers 4, Red Sox 2 BOSTON — C.J. Wilson struck out a careerhigh 10 and Texas capitalized on Boston’s throwing problems to beat the Red Sox. Blue Jays 10, Orioles 1 BALTIMORE— Yunel Escobar hit his first career grand slam during a six-run second inning, and Toronto to a three-game sweep. Playing his third game with the Blue Jays since being traded by the Atlanta Braves, Escobar tied a career high with five RBIs and got three hits to increase his batting average with Toronto to .462. He hit .238 with no homers in 75 games with Atlanta. Athletics 9, Royals 6 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Adam Rosales, Kevin Kouzmanoff and Jack Cust each went deep, and Vin Mazzaro pitched into the eighth inning to help the Oakland finish a three-game sweep. Mariners 2, Angels 1, 10 innings ANAHEIM, Calif. — Jose Lopez hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the 10th inning, helping the Seattle snap an eight-game losing streak to Angels. Twins, 7, White Sox 6 MINNEAPOLIS — Delmon Young hit a tying single and Michael Cuddyer raced home with the winning run on center fielder Alex Rios’ throwing error, capping Minnesota’s four-run ninth inning. National League Rockies 1, Reds 0 CINCINNATI — Chris Iannetta homered off left-hander Travis Wood, who was coming off a nearly perfect performance, and Aaron Cook got a breakthrough win on the road. Two of the NL’s top offenses had trouble on a hot, breezy afternoon. Braves 11, Brewers 6 ATLANTA — Brian McCann hit a grand slam and matched his career high with five RBIs, helping the Braves end a rare two-game home losing streak. Matt Diaz drove in three runs with three hits, including a homer. Rickie Weeks had two homers for Milwaukee. Cubs 11, Phillies 6 CHICAGO — Roy Halladay hit Marlon Byrd twice and gave up two-run homers to Geovany Soto and Alfonso Soriano after both HBPs. Byrd became the first Cubs player in 105 years to be hit by a pitch 16 times in a season. Padres 6, Diamondbacks 4 SAN DIEGO — Chris Denorfia homered twice and had four hits, and Everth Cabrera tripled in the go-ahead run moments before being ejected for a tussle with Mark Reynolds. Pirates 9, Astros 0 PITTSBURGH — Paul Maholm pitched a three-hitter for his second career shutout and the Pirates established a season high for hits for the second consecutive game. Roy Oswalt (6-11) retired only seven of the final 14 batters he faced for Houston. Mets 4, Giants 3, 10 innings SAN FRANCISCO — Ike Davis doubled home the go-ahead run in 10th inning after the Mets wasted a two-run lead in the ninth, as New York avoided a four-game sweep. Cardinals 5, Dodgers 4 ST. LOUIS — Matt Holliday drove in the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning, and the Cardinals rallied from a four-run deficit to finish a four-game sweep. Marlins 1, Nationals 0 MIAMI — Alex Sanabia pitched into the sixth inning to earn his first major league win.

ronnie eidson pitches toward the green at the 11th hole. He won the rowan amateur for the second time.

EIDSON FroM 1B Facing a sharp dogleg to the left, the drive from Dorsett went through the fairway into out-of-bounds territory. He reached the green two strokes later and had a putt for bogey when he conceded to Eidson, who was preparing for a 3-foot birdie putt. “Most matches you play, if you get a couple up, you can go into par mode,” Eidson said. “You can’t do it with Keith. He’s going to make you play.” The sweat-soaked victory occurred seven months after Eidson endured a series of life-altering events. He suffered a heart attack in early December. Two weeks later came a cancer diagnosis. Eidson said he received three units of blood every other day for several weeks before his treatments began, and he was deemed cancerfree in February. His golf game started rounding into shape in June, and he finished third in the Rowan Masters. “It got to where I was real weak, and I’m starting to build it back up now,” said Eidson, who has been playing nine holes about four times a week. “I feel a whole lot better. I still don’t have the endurance I’d like to have, but I’ll take what I’ve got right now. “I’m used to hitting a lot of practice balls, and I just haven’t gotten to this year. I haven’t had the energy.” Eidson posted the secondlowest qualifying score for

He closed out a 6-and-4 quarterfinal victory against Eric Mulkey on Sunday morning and needed 19 holes to beat Dusty Holder in the semifinals. Dorsett reached the final with a 5-and-4 win against defending champion Ryan Honeycutt. Eidson took two of the first three holes in the final, and Dorsett pulled even thanks to birdies on the fifth, sixth and seventh holes. He hit the pin with his approach at No. 9 but missed a 5-foot birdie putt that could have given him the lead for the first time. “A little left-to-right

break,” Dorsett said. “Just put a bad stroke on it, probably the worst one of the weekend.” Eidson reclaimed the lead for good at No. 12, where he hit a 9-iron from 137 yards away to within 8 feet. At the par-3 13th, Eidson pulled out an 8-iron and ended up 6 feet from the cup. “I had made up my mind I was going to quit trying to guide the ball,” Eidson said. “Go ahead, take a swing and trust it. It worked out good. “I’ve been drawing the ball a lot, and it’s because I was backing down and letting off on it. I decided I was going to go ahead and take the full cut.” The 2-up lead didn’t last

long — Dorsett won No. 14 with a par. Eidson managed to par No. 15 after benefiting from the lucky ricochet, but Dorsett still had a chance to even the match. A short birdie putt lipped out, and Dorsett smiled in disbelief. Each player made par at No. 16, and a solid 5-wood off the tee at No. 17 allowed Eidson to hit a full wedge into the green. “He’s steady and smooth,” Dorsett said. “You can’t really beat that out here unless you’re really firing at all the pins and making a lot of birdies. He doesn’t make a lot of mistakes when he gets up on somebody.”

Three holes later, Casey hit into a gorse bush and made triple bogey, while Oosthuizen holed an 18-foot birdie putt. Oosthuizen spent the final hour soaking up an atmosphere unlike any other in golf with his caddie, Zack Rasego. He finished at 16-under 272 and became the first player since Tony Lema in 1964 to win his first major at St. Andrews. Just as Lema did when he won, Oosthuizen ordered bottles of champagne for the press. Never mind that everyone struggled to pronounce his name. All that mattered was the spelling on the bottom of that claret jug. And yes, the engraver used the abbreviated version — Louis — not his given name of Lodewicus Theodorus Oosthuizen. With the fifth victory of his career, Oosthuizen moved to No. 15 in the world. And as a sign of just how global golf has become, it’s the second time this decade that the four major championship trophies reside on four continents. “Nobody was going to stop him,” said Casey, whose adventures in the gorse sent him to a 75 and a tie for third with Rory McIlroy (68) and Henrik Stenson (71). “He didn’t miss a shot today. I don’t know if he missed one all week. That was four days of tremendous golf. He didn’t flinch today.” No, there was only that gap-tooth smile that earned him the nickname “Shrek” from his friends. And there was amazement across his face when he cradled the oldest trophy in golf, a silver claret jug with his name etched alongside Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan, and the other South African winners — Gary Player, Bobby Locke and Ernie Els, his mentor. Without the Ernie Els & Fancourt Foundation in South Africa, the son of a farmer could not have afforded the travel required to reach the game’s highest level. “It was great to have a South African winning it on Mandela Day,” said Dennis Bruyns, the chief executive of the Southern Africa PGA. “And there was a great sense of satisfaction in having a South African caddie with him, too.” It was the fifth major for the Springboks dating to Retief Goosen winning the U.S. Open in 2001, and the first at the British Open since Els won at Muirfield in 2002, a victory that inspired Oosthuizen. “Shrek is on the move,” Goosen said. “I knew he had a lot of talent. He grew up in an area (Mossel Bay) that’s very windy, so for him, these conditions are normal. The guy’s got one of the best swings on tour. I think he’ll be around for many years to come.” Some 45 miles away, Player was returning from a golf outing and listening to every shot on the radio, proud as can be.

TIGER WOODS He saw the potential during a practice round they played at the Masters this year. Player called Oosthuizen on Sunday morning and gave him a pep talk. “I told him he’s got to realize that lots of people are hitting bad shots,” Player said, not knowing how few of those the kid would hit. “And I told him the crowd was naturally going to show a bias. But I reminded him when I played Arnold Palmer in 1961 at the Masters, only my wife and my dog was pulling for me. I told him he’s got to get in there and be more determined to win.” Oosthuizen was relaxed as he could be, putting his arm around Rasego after hitting off the 18th tee and walking over the Swilcan Bridge, thousands of fans packed into the grandstands, along the road and peering out the shop windows. “It’s a proud moment for us, especially with the Old Man, winning on his birthday,” Rosega said. “Winning at St. Andrews, it’s unbelievable. He deserves what he’s just done.” The 150th anniversary of golf’s oldest championship was memorable in so many ways. It began with Rory McIlroy tying the major championship record with a 63 in some of the calmest conditions at the course. It ended with someone other than Woods hoisting the claret jug in front of the R&A clubhouse. Woods tapped in on the final hole and removed his cap to salute the gallery, just as he did the last two Opens at St. Andrews. Only this time, the tournament was still two hours from finishing. Woods made two double bogeys on his way to a 72 and tied for 23rd. It was his seventh tournament of the year without a victory, matching the longest drought of his career. “I’m not going to win all of them,” Woods said after his worst 72-hole finish in a major in six years. “I’ve lost a lot more than I’ve won.” No way he was going to win this one. Neither was anyone else. Oosthuizen might have been nervous, but it didn’t show. Charl Schwartzel, his best friend from their junior golf days in South Africa, ran into him on Saturday and said Oosthuizen was showing him comedy videos on his phone.

“ Z a c h wanted to do it so badly, he pressed a little and didn’t get a good pitch to hit,” Gantt said. “But we had plenty of HOLMES chances before that. We just kept chasing balls up, and their pitchers exploited that.” Kernersville coach Chad Loflin wasn’t celebrating. “No doubt about it, it’s huge when you get five runs in the first, and our pitchers did a better job of working both sides of the plate,” he said. “But this is a series. I didn’t feel so bad after the first one, and I don’t feel good now.”

“You have to learn from your mistakes and keep doing what you can to help your team out,” Robinson said. Schultz, who propelled East Forsyth to the 4A championship series, was very good, and reliever Evan Orenstein was even better. He fanned seven and held Rowan hitless the final three innings. “Schultz had to be throwing mid-to-upper 80s,” Untz said. “It just didn’t look that fast until you got into the box.” Rowan cut its deficit to 5-2 in the third when Noah Holmes’ sacrifice fly scored Justin Morris and Luke Thomas’ two-out single drove in Zach Smith.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland â&#x20AC;&#x201D; One bad round. One completely, utterly awful round. Take that away, and Rory McIlroyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walk up the 18th fairway Sunday at the British Open might have been triumphant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but think about Friday going up the last hole there,â&#x20AC;? McIlroy said after shooting a 68 that moved him into a tie for third. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know, if I had just sort of stuck in a little bit more on Friday and held it together more, it could have been a different story.â&#x20AC;? McIlroy finished eight strokes behind winner Louis Oosthuizen. Take away the 80 he posted Friday and give him a score in the 60s â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as he had the other three days â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and it explains why he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thrilled with his best finish at a major. McIlroyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best finish at the British Open was a tie for 42nd three years ago. He failed to make the cut at either the Masters or the U.S. Open this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew that I had a good chance coming in here, and it was nice to sort of be there for a while,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still a bit disappointed, to be honest, because I know if I could have played anywhere decent on Friday, I could have been a lot closer to the lead. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying that I could have got to 17 under, but I definitely could have been contending for second place, anyway.â&#x20AC;? With Lee Westwood, the No. 3 player in the world still nursing a bum leg, McIlroy arrived at St. Andrews as the best hope to end the United Kingdomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s losing streak at its own open. No golfer from Britain or Northern Ireland has hoisted the claret jug since Paul Lawrie in 1999, and Nick Faldo was the last Englishman to win, claiming the last of his three Open titles in 1992.


â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Best Insulatedâ&#x20AC;?


associated press

rory Mcilroy had three rounds in the 60s and an 80 at the British open. Though only 21, McIlroy is the kind of precocious talent who could carry the continent for a generation. The Northern Irishman turned pro in 2007, earned his European card without going to Qschool and broke into the top 10 in the world before his 21st birthday. He claimed his first PGA Tour win in May, bringing Quail Hollow in Charlotte to its knees with a 62 on Sunday. McIlroy tied the major-championship record by shooting 63 in pristine conditions Thursday morning. But with the wind howling and the Old Course showing its considerable bite, he blew up with the 80 on Friday afternoon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you start off shooting 63 in any golf tournament, you fancy your chances going into the next three days,â&#x20AC;? McIlroy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just so happened to be it got very windy on Friday, and I just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deal with it very well. ... I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played in wind like that for a long time. So it was


a bit of a new experience.â&#x20AC;? No player had ever shot such a high score after going so low the day before in a major tournament. As the strokes piled up, McIlroy began looking his age, rolling his eyes, slumping his shoulders, kicking the grass. It could have started him on a major meltdown, the kind that can linger for months. Instead, McIlroy went back to his hotel room, ordered room service and went to bed. On Saturday, he came out and shot a 69. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For three rounds, I was 16 under par, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely in there,â&#x20AC;? McIlroy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a pity about Friday.â&#x20AC;? But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect him to keep wondering, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What if?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to give me nightmares,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was 16 under for three rounds of golf around St. Andrews in the Open, and just one bad round. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine.â&#x20AC;?

AX-3 DOMAINES, France â&#x20AC;&#x201D; With the Pyrenees all too ready to punish riders, overall leader Andy Schleck and defending champion Alberto Contador sized each other up, matching wits and pedal strokes in a high-altitude waiting game at the Tour de France. Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory belonged to Christophe Riblon, a relatively unknown Frenchman who won a stage in cyclingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showcase race for the first time. Riblon, who rides for AG2R, was spurred by a French crowd that has little to celebrate at the Tour in recent years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesterday night if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d asked me about today, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have bet one euro on me,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different now, of course. What I have done today is very important, for me and my team.â&#x20AC;? Schleck leads Contador, his closest rival, by 31 seconds. Both arrived with the same time, more than a minute behind Riblon. They lost a few seconds to the next closest contenders, Samuel Sanchez of Spain and Denis Menchov of Russia, but were not unhappy. Lance Armstrong finished more than 15 minutes behind Riblon. The seven-time champion has acknowledged he has no chance of victory, but he hints at a possible glorious burst between now and Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finish in Paris. Speaking after Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stage, he said he would like a stage victory, but only if he earns it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back in our heyday, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give anything away, so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want anybody to say: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s let the old man have one.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what this event is about,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got 25 of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need anybody handing me one just â&#x20AC;&#x2122;cause they feel sorry for me.â&#x20AC;?

THE STORY SO FAR… Pancake, a hurt loggerhead turtle, is taken to a sea turtle hospital after she is rescued and treated. At the hospital, a young girl named Lolly bonds with Pancake. Pancake is getting well until, suddenly, one day she stops using her flipper. After a long period of rehabilitation, Pancake regains the use of her flipper and may be well enough to be released. But is Lolly ready to let her sea turtle friend go?

Chapter Five The Big Day!

That next week, Dr. Andy came to visit the turtle hospital to check on all the patients, but especially to check on Pancake! That day, he would determine if she was ready to be released. Lolly helped Dr. Andy by keeping Pancake calm while he checked her over thoroughly. “You are a good helper,” Dr. Andy said. “You have a way with all the turtles, especially Pancake.” “I like the turtles,” Lolly responded, adding, “and Pancake’s my favorite!” The doctor finished examining Pancake’s shell. “Very good,” he muttered, as he worked. “Yes, she’s healed nicely.” Next, Dr. Andy checked the sea turtle’s front flipper. Pancake wiggled her front flippers and squirmed on the table. “I see her flipper is healed too!” Dr. Andy laughed, holding on to the big turtle. “Pancake’s better, isn’t she?” Lolly asked. “She sure is,” the doctor answered, smiling, “thanks to you and everyone at the turtle hospital. Her carapace is healed; her flipper is strong and working just fine. She’s ready to be released back to the ocean.”

Pancake so people could identify her if she was spotted again. The tagging process was painless, and the new tag wouldn’t get in Pancake’s way at all. Soon Pancake was ready to go home! A cheer went up from the crowd when they spotted Pancake. Everyone was happy for the sea turtle. The hospital staff placed Pancake on the sandy beach, pointing her in the direction of her home––the ocean. Lolly stood close behind Pancake. The reporters with their cameras struggled to get a good shot of the sea turtle. People took pictures. Everyone gathered around; they all wanted to be able to see the sea turtle being released. The turtle hospital staff followed Pancake, keeping the onlookers at a safe distance. Pancake crawled slowly and awkwardly toward the water, shuffling her heavy body across the sand. On land, Pancake was clumsy and slow. But once she was in the water, Pancake swam quickly through the surf despite her long stay at the hospital. She swam gracefully out toward the open sea as if she had never been injured at all!

Lolly waved goodbye as she watched her special friend go. She felt a little sad––she would miss Pancake. But she knew that Pancake was going home where she belonged. And that made Lolly very happy! The crowd gave a loud cheer as Pancake swam away. Everyone stood on the beach and watched until Pancake was out of sight. Slowly the crowd trickled away. Lolly was left alone on the beach staring out at the vast blue ocean. It had been a big day! All the hard work had paid off. Pancake was finally home. But Lolly couldn’t help wondering… Would Pancake be all right? Next Time… Pancake Returns!

Lolly couldn’t help smiling too. It made her feel good to know that she had done her part to help Pancake! The hospital was in a flurry. Preparations for Pancake’s release had to be made. There were a lot of details to attend to. Everyone was busy. Lolly was busy too. It was almost the end of the school year, and she was occupied with end of year activities. It was also the start of her mom’s bookstore’s peak season. There was much to do! But Lolly found time to visit her special friend every chance she got. She wanted to spend as much time as she could with Pancake before she was released. Lolly looked in the turtle tank. Pancake looked well and happy. “It won’t be long now until you can go back home,” Lolly told Pancake. “It will be great. You can eat and swim to your heart’s content!” Lolly smiled down at her special charge. She felt happy and a little sad all mixed together! “We all did a good job, huh, kiddo,” Jan said, coming up behind Lolly. For a moment, she and the young girl quietly watched the totally recovered sea turtle. Each was lost in her own private thoughts. Soon the big day arrived! Everyone was there to see Pancake off. All the staff from the sea turtle hospital turned out. Many members of the community were there to show their support too. Even people who didn’t live at the beach had traveled for miles to watch the sea turtle release. And of course Lolly was there. Quite a crowd gathered on the beach waiting for the sea turtle. Pancake was the star of the moment! Newspaper reporters and people from TV stations turned out to record the exciting event. Pancake was going to be in the newspaper––and on the six o’clock news. But before Pancake was released, the doctors were giving her one last checkup. Then she was scrubbed, measured, weighed and tagged. The tag was put on


A Quality Serials Story

6B • MONDAY, JULY 19, 2010



Jobless in Cuba? Communism faces unthinkable HAVANA (AP) — At a state project to refurbish a decaying building in Old Havana, one worker paints a wall white while two others watch. A fourth sleeps in a wheelbarrow positioned in a sliver of shade nearby and two more smoke and chat on the curb. President Raul Castro has startled the nation lately by saying about one in five Cuban workers may be redundant. At the work site on Obispo street, those numbers run in reverse. It’s a common sight in communist Cuba. Here, nearly everyone works for the state, and official unemployment is minuscule, but pay is so low that Cubans like to joke that “the state pretends to pay us and we pretend to work.” Now, facing a severe budget deficit, the government has hinted at restructuring or trimming its bloated work force. Such talk is causing tension, however, in a country where guaranteed employment was a building block of the 1959 revolution that swept Fidel Castro to power. Details are sketchy on how and when such pruning would take place. Still, acknowledgment that cuts are needed has come from Raul Castro himself. “We know that there are hundreds of thousands of unnecessary workers on the budget and labor books, and some analysts calculate that the excess of jobs has surpassed 1 million,” said Castro, who replaced his ailing brother Fidel as president nearly four years ago. Cuba’s work force totals 5.1 million, in a population of 11.2 million. In his nationally televised speech in April, Castro also had harsh

the size of a company’s work force. But low pay means low productivity. On Obispo street, a state-run cafeteria sells heavily subsidized soft ice cream and pork sandwiches for the equivalent of a few American pennies — meaning wages and tips are so tiny that the staff is complete indifferent toward customers. Three waiters sit at the counter cracking jokes. A fourth is the only one working, making coffee for three tables. Nearby, a cashier stares into space, a cook flirts with a scantily clad teen and a supervisor sits idly by. The state employs 95 percent of the official work force. Unemployment last year was 1.7 percent and hasn’t risen above 3 percent in eight years — but that ignores thousands of Cubans who aren’t looking for jobs that pay monthly salaries worth only $20 a month on average. Salvador Valdes Mesa, secretarygeneral of the nearly 3 million-strong Cuban Workers Confederation — the only Cuban labor union allowed — has instead written that “reorganization” will ensure redundant workers are reassigned rather than fired. He said the government wants more jobs in construction and agriculture. Still, 35-year-old computer engineer Norberto fears for his job. He thinks it’s unfair to keep workers under communist domination and yet call them unmotivated. “I didn’t graduate from college to now work as a day laborer or a peasant,” he said. If he loses his job and gets an offer to work abroad, he said, “my question is ‘Will the Cuban authorities put aside their paternalism and let me leave?’ ”

Make life tough: jump overcall

That special trip or vacation you’ve always dreamed of taking has some chance of becoming a reality in the year ahead. If things don’t fall in place for you, replace it with another big desire you know can be fulfilled. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — It’s likely to be the little unnoticeable things that determine whether or not you can successfully handle a serious situation or problem. Know what you’re getting into before jumping in. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Volunteering to take on something for which you’re ill equipped to handle is just plain dumb, especially if there’s a chance it might be more intricate than it initially looks. Let an expert handle things. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Think before you open your mouth today or you’re likely to let something out of the bag that is meant to be confidential. You wouldn’t want to be blamed for spreading a private matter around. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — In order to fulfill your hopes and expectations today, you will have to be extremely methodical and careful about how you go about doing so. It’ll take practicality to fulfill your dream. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It might take multiple stages to fulfill something that is important to you, so don’t try to rush things along. Making numerous small mistakes could add up to one big failure. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If it is left to you to deliver an important detailed message, don’t depend upon your memory to recall every little detail. Put things to paper before trying to pass things on. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You aren’t likely to function too well playing second fiddle today, so don’t get involved in any situation where the control is totally in the hands of another. Make sure you have a say in things. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Nobody is likely to find fault with the way you manage a major assignment, as long as you don’t have to handle the details. It’ll be the small, insignificant factors that’ll trip you up. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Guard against talking out of turn and revealing more than you should to the wrong people. The way to qualify your listeners is if there is a possibility one among them could misuse the information. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Don’t be such a stickler for all the rules and details when engaged in a friendly game today with your pals or family. Relax and enjoy the sport just for the fun of playing it. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — That person you were depending upon to assist you with a project that requires help might not be available today. You’re going to have to either fly solo or put it off until another day. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Before jumping in and volunteering to untangle a mess another has made, assess the situation more thoroughly. The complexities might be far more intricate than is obvious at first glance. United FeatUre Syndicate

Your job at the bridge table during the auction is twofold: to try to get your side to your best contract, and to try to disrupt the bidding of the opponents. This week, we will look at disrupting the opponents by making a jump overcall. What does a single jump overcall in a suit show? Basically, the same as a weak-two opening: a decent six-card suit and 5-10 high-card points. Look at the North hand in today’s diagram. What would you do after West opens one heart? Don’t make a cowardly pass or a two-club overcall — jump to three clubs. The hand has a good suit, which is a plus, and you will make it more difficult for the opponents to find a spade fit (if they have one). The minuses are having no singleton and being forced to bid at the three-level. But if you play weak jump overcalls, live — hopefully not die — with them. In this deal, though, it is partner who has the goods. He might jump to five clubs, which here has no chance, or three no-trump, which is no lock, but is a justifiable gamble. West leads the diamond six, a sneak attack. How should South plan the play? Assuming the defender with the club ace can hold up for one round, declarer will need a dummy entry, which can come only from diamonds. So, he must win the first trick

with his diamond king. Then he drives out the club ace. When back in, he leads a diamond to force that dummy entry. If South takes trick one in the dummy, West can keep him out of the dummy, ducking the king and taking the seven.

Paris Hilton caught with marijuana PARIS (AP) — A French news report says socialite Paris Hilton was briefly detained in Corsica after a “quite small” quantity of marijuana was found in her bag. Corse Matin newspaper reported on its website that Hilton had been taken in for questioning after sniffer dogs at the airport in Figari detected about a gram of marijuana after she touched down Friday on the Mediterranean island. The paper reported she was released after about 30 minutes. In a posting on the TwitLonger site, Hilton said she had not been arrested. “I am having the best vacation of my life,” she wrote.

Dear Dr. Gott: Your recent column in the Wisconsin State Journal said that 1 teaspoon of salt contained 230 milligrams of sodium. My salt container says 1/4 teaspoon contains 590 milligrams, so 1 teaDR. PETER spoon would have 2.36 GOTT grams, 10 times what your column said and more than the recommended daily intake. I hope that you will print a correction. Dear Dr. Gott: Wow. After years of good advice, you really blew it today. In your article on water-softener salt, you mentioned 1 teaspoon of salt contains 230 milligrams of sodium. Boy, are you way off. According to my sources, 1 teaspoon is equal to 2,000 milligrams or more! As you know, this is a huge issue in our society, and I’m sure you will set this right as you always do. Sign me a loyal reader, CPR instructor and home-care nurse that frequently copies your articles for home-care patient teaching. Dear Dr. Gott: In a recent article, you wrote that 1 teaspoon of salt contains 230 milligrams of sodium. The salt that I purchase at Wal-Mart contains 590 milligrams of sodium in 1/4

teaspoon. Morton’s Lite Salt has 290 milligrams of sodium in 1/4 teaspoon. Could you please tell me what salt has only 230 milligrams per teaspoon? My husband is on Aldactone owing to cirrhosis, and we had to stop using the Morton Lite Salt because of the potassium content. Dear Dr. Gott: I hope that this was a misprint in atoday’s Ventura County Star. You said 1 teaspoon of salt had 230 milligrams of sodium. There are actually 590 milligrams of sodium in 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Also, you felt that water softeners were not a hazard to a lowsalt diet. This is not the case in my community. My husband has Meniere’s disease, and when he stopped drinking softened tap water, his symptoms were greatly improved. Dear Dr.Gott: Your estimate of the amount of sodium (230 milligrams) in a teaspoon of salt is low by a factor of 10. Dear Readers: Whew, have I been caught! My original column should have stated 2,300 milligrams, as several of you pointed out, not 230. Somewhere along the way, a zero was dropped, and I owe everyone an apology for the misprint. While many products and additives may state they are “low salt,” it is extremely important to read labels to ensure this element is not taken in ex-

cess. For example, a can of soup is commonly very high in sodium to begin with, and the can may contain 2-1/2 servings, which can be deceiving. In the matter of cirrhosis, kidney disease and congestive heart failure, sodium can lead to a serious buildup of excess fluid. A healthful, nutritious diet is important for everyone, whether dealing with a medical condition or not. And the best resource is a personal physician who knows your full medical history and can advise accordingly. While we all like to think we are perfect, I am the first to admit I do make mistakes (and typographical errors). I thank those readers who brought this issue to my attention. I’ll make every effort to do better. Stay tuned, but keep those corrections coming.
