Assistant DA fights off dog attack Biernacki suffers numerous bites to her face, arms

Brain surgery helps get 34-year-old back on the road, into living BY SHAVONNE POTTS

n his first try, Brian Andrews got his driver’s license after passing the driving portion of the test. He chose a background for his license, took his picture and afterward, posed for a picture at his mother’s request. Andrews, 34, is pretty excited about being able to drive. It will be the first time he’s had a license in six years. Andrews has suffered from seizures since he was 16. Andrews had his first seizure at home. It was a grand mal seizure, also known as a tonic-clonic seizure. “It came out of the blue. It’s when you lose consciousness and have full convulsions,” he said. Grand mal seizures are caused by abnormal electrical activity throughout the brain. It’s the type of seizure most people picture when they think of a seizure. It is commonly associated with epilepsy. “It lasted up to a minute,” said Sylvia Andrews, Brian’s mother. Months passed and Brian didn’t have another seizure until an overnight school field trip, Sylvia recalls. He had a seizure in the hotel room one night and was rushed to the local hospital. Brian was soon after treated for epilepsy. Doctors said he was experiencing sleep seizures because they occurred at night when he was relaxed. Brian was placed on a widely used anti-seizure medication. “Medication seemed to control them at the time. After a long time, the seizures started



showing up in different ways,” Brian said. He began having different types of seizures, some nonconvulsive and silent. The sleep seizures stopped and the absence seizures or petit mals began. A person who experiences petit mals seems to tune out for a short time. He had sporadic periods of disorientation, which at first didn’t affect his driving. “My periods of disorientation moved to almost unconsciousness. It was a dreamlike state,” he said. Often, whatever activity Brian was doing, he kept doing while having a seizure. Once while filling out paperwork at the doctor’s office, he had a petit mal seizure. When he came to, he’d scribbled all over the form. For years, doctors prescribed several different medications to combat the seizures and ran tests to determine what was causing them. “The longer he had waking seizures, the worse they got. The medications weren’t as effective,” Sylvia said. In 2008, while attending an epilepsy support group, it was recommended that Brian go to a neurologist in Winston-Salem. The doctor informed Brian about other treatments that included implants, a dog who senses a seizure before it happens and brain surgery. He opted to look into brain surgery. Doctors first needed to run more advanced tests. He had several imaging scans including a PET and EEG, a noninvasive way to monitor his brain

Brian Andrews leaves the DMV office after being cleared to drive. He had surgery to halt the seizures he’d had for years.

Karen Biernacki, a Rowan County assistant district attorney, fought off an 85-pound dog Friday evening and suffered numerous bites to her face and arms. “Copper,” a Rottweiler-mix that Biernacki rescued a year ago and nursed back to health, attacked the prosecutor when she inspected the dog’s paw, which Biernacki suspected was injured. Biernacki said the attack does not change her election plans. She is running to succeed her boss, Rowan County District Attorney Bill Kenerly, who will retire in December. Biernacki, who called 911 herself, sustained three to four puncture wounds on each arm BIERNACKI and said she can’t count the number of stitches in her face. She stayed on her feet throughout the ordeal, while the dog repeatedly lunged at her and bit her forehead, arms and nose. Recovering at home Saturday night, Biernac-

Withheld lottery money necessitates budget cuts BY KARISSA MINN

County commissioners will consider several potential budget cuts Monday to make up for lottery money held back by the state this year. At the commissioners’ request, County Manager Gary Page created a list of options — including employee furlough days, job cuts and reductions in library and park hours — for offsetting the loss of $900,000 in N.C. Education Lottery funding. The money had been budgeted to pay down bond debt, which must now be paid with other funds. The board will discuss those options at 4 p.m. in the commissioners meeting room on the second floor of the J. Newton Cohen Sr. Rowan County Administration Building, 130 W. Innes St. Page said the whole sum could be taken from the fund balance, but the county will have to make cuts next year to avoid drawing it down any further. Making some of those now would help save money so that future cuts wouldn’t need to be as severe. “Unless the economy turns around, next year is going to be more difficult than the past two,” Page said. “This is about cutting our losses as

FROM 1a activity. “The purpose of the tests were to determine where the seizures were coming from,” said Dr. Saurabh R. Sinha, a neurologist with Duke University Hospital in Durham. It was discovered there was some activity in his right temporal lobe. The temporal lobe controls hearing and the ability to recognize words and can affect memory. It was the first time Brian was offered some hope, he said. One of the tests required doctors to create a seizure in order to see the effects and location of the brain activity. Brian had electrodes attached to his head and doctors began lowering his medication, depriving him of sleep and having him exercise to tire him. He was doing the opposite of what he’d tried to do for years: maintain medication, get plenty of rest and avoid stress. He then had the Wada test (pronounced WAH-dah), named after the doctor who first performed it. It’s a test to map the brain, one side at time. In the test, electrodes were implanted onto the surface of his brain, Sinha said. “The right part of my brain was not functioning properly,” Brian said. Doctors needed only one thing — for Brian to have seizures.

Many employees found themselves with more leisure time on their hands during the Great Recession. “We in North Carolina have a large number of hourly jobs,” Van Geons said. “If a company cuts back and pulls back on hours and overtime, you can’t hold that against the worker.” According to Business Week, North Carolina is not a particularly active place.

I don’t have any lasting side effects,” Brian said. In May, his doctor gave him medical clearance to try for his driver’s license. He received it July 23. Brian feels he’s gotten a new lease on life. It didn’t come without some bumps along the way. He relied heavily on his faith and his family’s support. “It was hard on the family,” Sylvia said.

He has no immediate plans for the future, but can now hit the play button. “When I first started having seizures, I was always on the go and in control, then I was not in control,” he said. Brian admits the seizures changed him. “I look at the world differently. It has been a growing experience,” he said. Brian had been secluded, his mother said, because of having seizures.

ter being unable to drive for six years because of seizures. He had only one, but it was enough. A week later on Dec. 8, Brian elected to have brain surgery. Doctors disconnected the electrodes and removed nearly all of his temporal lobe and part of his parietal lobe, which controls how a person sees, feels, understands and processes information. “He was awake during the second surgery,” Sinha said. Doctors wanted to record information before, during and after surgery to see what Brian recalled. Sinha said the reason Bri-

an is able to function without parts of his temporal lobe and parietal lobe is because over the years, his brain rewired itself. “The other parts of the brain take over,” Sinha said. Surgery is not always the answer for all people with epilepsy, he said. “But people who have seizures that aren’t well-controlled should look into such an option,” Sinha said. Doctors warned Brian side effects could include diminished peripheral vision, diminished or total loss of

Rare yellow lobster pulled from bay in Rhode Island PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — It’s not made of gold, but a yellow lobster pulled from Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay is very rare. Lobsterman Denny Ingram says he found the lobster in one of his pots the bay’s East Passage last week. It is golden on the top and bright yellow on both sides. Experts say the genetic feature is very rare, occurring in about 1 in 30 million lobsters. It’s also apparently good luck for this lobster, who will not be heading to anyone’s dinner table. Ingram says he plans to keep the yellow lobster on display at the fishermen’s co-op at the State Pier in Newport.

CLEANUP DAY AT LIVINGSTONE Rowan dodges drought Rain wasn’t at right time for farmers growing corn BY KARISSA MINN

Recent thunderstorms may have ruined some plans and flooded some yards, but they also have kept Rowan out of the dry conditions that now plague most of the state. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, 39 counties are experiencing drought, and four of them have reached “severe drought” conditions. Another 45 counties are abnormally dry, which means that drought is not present but could return without sufficient rainfall. That leaves Rowan County as one of just 16 counties in the state not under a drought advisory, all located in the Piedmont region. Philippe Papin, with the National Weather

College employees team up to beautify campus

Filing starts Tuesday for judge’s open seat

BY LAURIE D. WILLIS Livingstone College News Service


earing jeans, T-shirts and caps, Livingstone College employees joined President Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins Sr. on Saturday, painting, pruning trees, removing furniture and doing other chores to help beautify the campus. The project was the idea of Jenkins and supported by his senior staff, who decided about three weeks ago they wanted the college to undergo a major facelift to complement the bear sculpture that was moved to the campus’ front lawn. “We did this when I first got here in 2006,” Jenkins said. “It’s something that needs to be done, but it also gets employees together for something fun and gets them out of their normal routine.” Jenkins spent a good part of the morning pruning trees along Price Drive while riding in a lift operated by maintenance worker Brian Hughes. He also helped paint the Price Building, named after Livingstone Founder Dr. Joseph Charles Price. Dr. Gwendolyn B. Peart, director of library services, helped paint rails along the stairwell of the Hood Building, which houses the president’s office. Joining her were State Alexander, executive assistant to the president/director of public relations; Priscilla Crump, a library assistant; Laura Johnson, a reference librarian; and Sidney Sessoms, director of bands and assistant professor of music. Alisha Byrd, human resources coordinator, painted benches adorning the college’s front lawn while working with Sharon M. Thompson, associate vice president of operations; Gloria Blaire, chief of police; and Candace Fleming, a volunteer who assisted the college as the guest of track coach Justin Davis.

Historic Cooleemee houses will be condemned and demolished BY JACKIE SEABOLT Davie Enterprise Record

COOLEEMEE — Two houses were condemned and are slotted to be demolished by burning after the Cooleemee Town Board approved a text amendment to its fire code at its July meeting. The houses, both on Riverside Drive, are empty. According to Commissioner Tommy Daywalt — a relative of one of the original homeowners now deceased — one of the heirs to the estate wanted to know how the board could take the house and do what they want with it since it wasn’t in foreclosure. “A town never owns property it condemns,” replied attorney Brian Williams. “All the heirs have been notified. You’re condemning the structure, not the dirt. It’s still theirs.”

The board had to approve an amendment to the current fire code which prohibited the intentional burning of any structure within the town due to the close proximity of homes. Williams proposed changing the code to prohibit burning unless it was part of an exercise by the fire department as training. “While I’m very much in favor of moving forward on this, we’re losing historic homes, one possibly built even before the Civil War,” Mayor Lynn Rumley said. She suggested the board work to find solutions other than demolishing. “It is very unfortunate,” Commissioner Chris Branham said. The board voted in favor of condemning and demolishing the houses. Daywalt did not vote.

son, assistant vice president of institutional advancement; Wendy Jackson, registrar; Sherlyn Edwards, associate director of the physical plant; and Pat Foard, administrative assistant in the president’s office, spent time in Tucker Hall prepping rooms for painting. “I was actually hoping we would do this again,” said Jackson, who participated in the cleanup Jenkins organized four years ago. “It promotes a family concept and a good atmosphere. It also gives us a chance to see what the people who maintain our offices go through while doing their jobs. It makes us appreciate the physical plant employees more.”


Filing starts at 8 a.m. Tuesday for the special election to fill the seat now held by Rowan County Superior Court Judge John Holshouser Jr., whose age will require him to retire at the end of the month. Filing ends Aug. 9 at 5 p.m. Candidates must file at the N.C. State Board of Elections, 506 North Harrington St. in Raleigh. The filing fee is $1,244. According to state law, judges must retire at the end of the month in which they turn 72. Holshouser will reach that age on Aug. 28. The election to replace him will probably be on the Nov. 2 ballot, a State Board of Elections official said last week. If more than two candidates file for the seat, the election will be conducted as an instant runoff. Instead of just choosing one candidate, voters will rank their choices on the ballot in order of preference, said Candi Rhinehart, certification and outreach assistant with the State Board of Elections. “That way, there would be a winner, and there wouldn’t be a second election for it,” Rhinehart said last week. “It would all be done in November.” County Elections Director Nancy Evans said she doesn’t think this type of election has ever been held in Rowan County. Gov. Beverly Perdue can appoint someone to fill Holshouser’s seat in the interim, but Rhineheart said it’s more likely that an emergency judge will fill in until someone is elected. For more information about the special election, call Rowan County Board of Elections at 704-216-8140 or the State Board of Elections at 919-733-7173.

Judge says online IDs can remain confidential CHARLOTTE (AP) — A North Carolina judge has ruled that news organizations do not have to release the identities of people who make comments on their online news articles. Gaston County Superior Court Judge Calvin Murphy ruled the Gaston Gazette did not have to tell the attorney for a murder suspect who a commentator was on an article about the case. The identity of a commentator had been sought by an attorney for Michael Mead, who is charged with shooting his fiancee Lucy Johnson twice in the back of the head then burning her house down to conceal the crime in 2008. Mead’s attorney had sought the identity of someone who left an online comment on the newspaper’s website. The comment listed information related to a lie-detector test taken by the murder suspect, said attorney John Bussian,


who represents the Gazette. The judge’s order issued Tuesday cites the First Amendment and North Carolina’s shield law that protects news gatherers from having to release the identities of its sources, the Charlotte Observer reported Saturday. “The Gazette and (publisher Julie) Moreno have a qualified privilege against compelled disclosure of ... identifying information collected by The Gazette from posters to its website,” the order said. The order also said Mead’s attorney did not demonstrate the information sought could not be obtained elsewhere and was essential to his defense. “The press can operate freely without the worry that someone is going to go into the whole comment-posting and editorial process and shine a light, stare over your shoulder and make you think twice about what you’re going to say,” Bussian said.

April. But June and the first few weeks of July were somewhat drier than normal and brought some extremely high temperatures. Even though Rowan got plenty of rainfall in the first part of the corn-growing season, and more recently, farmers are seeing the effects of the hot, dry period in between. “We had a lot of rain early on, and the corn got off to a good start,” said Andy Myers, crops supervisor with the Piedmont Research Station. “Then, it turned all dry. It’s just not a very good crop this year” The research station irrigates its crops, so it has been able to give corn plants their needed water in drier weather. Myers said the recent storms will help with most crops, but it may have been too late to help some farmers recover dried-out corn plants. “The corn is at a stage where that weather didn’t help a lot,” he said. “A lot of farmers are cutting corn silage (for feed) three or four weeks early this year compared to normal years, because it’s been so dry.” This week’s drought map is posted at

Service, said the Piedmont has seen more thunderstorms in the past few weeks than the mountains or coastal plain. “During the summer, normally, you get a pattern where you have pulse thunderstorms, where some thunderstorms will go up in one area and not in another,” Papin said. “In July, most of those thunderstorms have gone up in central North Carolina.” Cooler sea surface temperatures caused by La Nina have created a generally drier, warmer weather pattern than normal, he said. This likely contributes to drought conditions found in much of the state. Dan McGovern, with the Piedmont Research station, said Rowan has actually gotten more rain so far this year than it did by this time last year — 27.8 inches compared to last year’s 24.6 at the end of July. By this time in 2008, when the county was facing drought conditions, the total was only 16 inches. Most of this year’s rainfall occurred in May, McGovern said. This helped jump-start Contact Karissa Minn at local farmers’ corn growth, because the crop is planted in 704-797-4222.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 1, 2010 • 5A


DOG FROM 1a ki told the Post that she plans to return to the courtroom this week. “She’s tough,” Kenerly said. Kenerly said he told Biernacki to “stay home a week or a month or whatever she needed,” but she declined. “That’s classic Karen,” he said. “That’s the way she is, and in fact the only time she got emotional when I talked to her was when she was talking about the dog and that he would have to be destroyed.” As she does every day, Biernacki stopped by her mother’s home Friday after work. Copper lived in a 40-by60 foot dog lot at her mother’s house on Foster Road in Cleveland. When she entered the lot to feed the dog, Biernacki said she noticed that one of his paws appeared injured. She ran her thumb over the dog’s pad. “He flipped out,” she said. “He went crazy.” The dog, which Biernacki said has always been docile and affectionate, began growling and lunging. “He got my left arm. He bit me several times,” she said. “I got my hand around the upper part of his snout and squeezed as hard as I could. “I was trying to talk to him and calm him down.” When the dog released its grip, Biernacki said she grabbed a five-gallon bucket of water and pulled it between them. “But he came at me again. I threw the bucket at him, and he got me above my left eye,” she said. “Thank God I never went down.” The dog lunged again and ripped her nostril. She knocked him down, and he bit her right arm. The dog lot has a series of gates, and Biernacki yelled to her mother to unlatch the inner gate. “He was still fighting and coming after me,” she said. “I dragged him to the gate, and I managed to get out.” The dog remained in the lot. Her mother was not injured. Biernacki called 911 and sat on the porch, covered in blood. She called her brother, Steve Simpson, who arrived quickly, and her husband, Paul, who was participating in a bicycle event in Charlotte to raise money for cancer research. He met her at the hospital.


“I have no doubt that he loves me. He just went crazy. He wasn’t hearing me, he wasn’t seeing me.”

KAREN BIERNACKI after attack by her dog, Copper

First responders from the Scotch Irish Volunteer Fire Department were Biernacki’s neighbors. They applied pressure dressings and monitored her vital signs until Rowan County EMS transported her to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. A plastic surgeon stitched her forehead and “sewed my nostril back together,” she said. The puncture wounds were left open in an effort to prevent infection. The surgeon predicted her wounds would heal well but said she may need surgery later to “buff off” any scars, Biernacki said. Rowan County Animal Control seized the dog, which was not aggressive when the officer arrived, Biernacki said. “He was wagging his tail,” she said. “Of course, he was covered in blood.” The dog was current on all vaccinations, she said. Copper originally belonged to someone in Biernacki’s neighborhood who kept the dog chained and neglected the animal, she said. An animal lover, Biernacki fed him for six months, then took him to the vet when she suspected that he had heart worms. When the test came back positive, Biernacki confronted the owner and offered to treat the dog if he would give the animal to her. He agreed, she said. “He was about to die,” she said. “He was in bad shape.” Copper recovered and was a good pet, until Friday. “I have no doubt that he loves me,” she said. “He just went crazy. He wasn’t hearing me, he wasn’t seeing me, I wasn’t getting through to him.” Biernacki said she asked the Rowan Animal Clinic to see that the dog was humanely and painlessly euthanized. “I would be afraid to be around him any more,” she said. “He would have killed my mom.” Contact Emily Ford at 704797-4264.

This Jack Russell terrier and orange tabby cat are up for adoption.


The Rowan County Animal Shelter has several animals waiting to be adopted and taken to a good home. Cats: We have orange tabbies, gray tabbies, white and black. And things change every day. Please come by the shelter to pick out the one that fits your fancy. This orange tabby is a young adult, approximately 4 months old. Dog: The owner surrendered this 3-monthold Jack Russell terrier when she could no longer afford to care for her. This little girl was accompanied by her sister of the same age. Both are full of energy and just a delight to watch wrestle and play, but really need a big open space to run. From rescued animals to those abandoned by owners who couldn’t afford them, and all others in between, the Animal Shelter has them all. Adoption fees are $70, a downpayment for spay/neuter costs. The voucher can be used at any veterinarian’s office. Before adopting any animal, a person must agree to take the pet to a veterinarian for an exam and spaying/neutering. If the animal isn’t already vaccinated for rabies, the person must agree to begin shots within three business days. Rabies shots can be given as soon as the pet turns 4 months old.

LIVINGSTONE FROM 3a Painting, pruning and other routine maintenance came easy to some of the employees on Saturday — like men’s basketball coach James Stinson Jr. “I enjoy outdoors, and I grew up doing work like this,” Stinson said while taking a break from trimming hedges at a Monroe Street house owned by the college. “I’m willing to do anything for the beautification of the institution. In athletics, we call it teamwork.” Dr. Stanley J. Elliott, vice president of student affairs, joked that painting and other construction-type work led him to college. “My father is a contractor, and I used to work with him and know it’s hard work,” Elliott said, while scraping paint off the Price Building. “That’s why I went to college — so I wouldn’t have to do this.” Elliott was all smiles, however, as he, William K. James, vice president of

business and finance; Henry Mawolo, computer information systems specialist; Abu Sheriff, network administrator; and others worked furiously on the school’s flagship building. “I do a little bit of this type of work at home, but not much,” James said. “It’s rewarding when you do something like this and you can immediately see the benefit of it without having to wait.” James said he didn’t mind getting up early on a Saturday — the cleanup began at 8 a.m. — because he’s an early riser. Surprisingly, 15-year-old Garrett Meachum said he didn’t mind getting up so early either. “I was looking forward to it all week once my mom told me about it,” said Garrett, the son of Leslie Jones, director of development and donor relations. “I don’t have much to do on Saturday mornings anyway, so I figured I might as well help out.” Garrett and Robert McInnis, director of institutional effectiveness, worked with Stinson on Monroe Street.

Shortly before the “cleanup crew” took a noon lunch break, Jenkins said he thought the project was going well. And everyone expressed thanks over the comfortable temperature, a far cry from the sweltering heat Salisbury and the rest of the South has suffered through lately. “Everybody seems to be working hard and I appreciate that,” Jenkins said. “It gives us ownership that we might not otherwise have. We want the people who support our institution to know we are good stewards of the resources that come to us and that we spread those resources as broadly and as far as we can to maximize

them.” Jenkins gave special thanks to Lowe’s, Valspar and Werner Company, businesses that donated paint and other materials for the event. Last week, Jeff S. Harrell, Lowe’s district commercial accounts representative, met with Dr. Herman J. Felton Jr., vice president of institutional advancement, and Avery Landrum, physical plant director, to discuss the cleanup project. “We discussed painting the front of the Price Building,” Harrell said. “We wanted to Brandon Wynn-Milton/FOR The SaLISBURY POST do this to help out a North CarOfficer Renwick Fisher and abu Sheriff, network administrator, olina college and also because Livingstone is a good client.” paint the rails at Price Building at Livingstone.

A 40-year-old woman escaped a fire that destroyed her parents’ house Saturday morning at 2555 Sherrills Ford Road. Patricia Easley was staying at the home of her parents, Terry and Kathryn Lingle, when she woke up around 4 a.m. to find the back porch on fire, said Deborah Horne, Rowan County fire investigator. The Lingles were on vacation. “The daughter miraculously woke up to see a red reflection in her door,” Horne said. After discovering the fire, Easley called 911 as passersby began beating on the door. They helped her out of the house, located between Majolica and Harrison roads, Horne said. The house had smoke detectors the family thought were operational, but none of them sounded. The house was a total loss, as were two vehicles parked in an attached garage. Horne did not have a property value. The Lingles, who are retired, built the house themselves in 1958 and had lived there since then. Firefighters were able to save the family

Bibles from the blaze but nothing else. “That was about all that didn’t burn,” Horne said. The fire started toward the back of the deck, but the cause remains undetermined, Horne said. “We are looking there and will continue over the next few days,” she said. The two-alarm fire was under control in 30 to 40 minutes, Horne said. “Locke Fire Department and all the departments did a fantastic job,” she said. Responding fire departments include Cleveland, Franklin, South Salisbury, Salisbury City, West Rowan and Atwell. Also responding were the Rowan County Rescue Squad, Rowan County Sheriff’s Office and Rowan County Fire Marshal. The Elizabeth Hanford Dole Chapter of the American Red Cross is assisting family members, who are staying with relatives in the area. Contact reporter Emily Ford at 704-797-4264.

Scale of Pakistan flooding is shocking with leaking classified material to the whistleblower website WikiLeaks had civilian help, a key figure in the case said Saturday. The development, first reported in the New York Times, suggests an expansion of the government’s investigation into leaks including more than 76,900 secret Afghanistan war records posted on WikiLeaks in the past week. Army and FBI officials didn’t immediately return calls and e-mails from the Associated Press asking if they are looking at possible civilian accomplices of Army Pfc. Bradley E. Manning, who’s charged under military law with leaking classified material. Adrian Lamo, the Sacramento, Calif.-based computer hacker who turned in Manning to military authorities in May, claimed in a telephone interview Saturday he had firsthand knowledge that someone helped Manning set up encryption software to send classified information to WikiLeaks. Lamo, who’s cooperating with investigators, wouldn’t name the person but said the man was among a group of people in the Boston area who work with WikiLeaks. He said the man told him “he actually helped Private Manning set up the encryption software he used.�

3 companies must work together to finally plug well

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — On shore, BP, Halliburton and Transocean are engaging in a billion-dollar blame game over the blown-out oil well in the Gulf of Mexico. At sea, they’re depending on each other to finally plug up the environmental disaster.

(AP) — courts isn’t a distraction at the A wildfire smoldered in the high desert north of Los Angeles Saturday, spewing plumes of thick smoke into a nearby town as hundreds of firefighters worked to contain the 2day-old blaze. The fire has charred nearly 22 square miles of brush in the Antelope Valley. It was 62 percent contained Saturday afternoon and no structures were threatened, said Los Angeles County Fire Capt. Sam Padilla. Some 1,300 firefighters MON - FRI 9AM-6PM were assigned to the fire near SAT 9AM-4PM Old Mocksville Rd., Salisbury Palmdale, and the city of (2.4 miles from hospital) 139,000 was filled with thick smoke. Crews hoped to close the fire’s south flank near Portal Ridge, Rancho Vista and Ana Verde as temperatures rose into the 90s and dry winds whipped up again as predicted. “We’re getting a handle on it,� Padilla said. “As soon as we contain that south end we’ll be in better shape.�

But at least one expert said government probes and potential for lawsuits can’t help but chill communication between the companies. Urik’s rig was in a holding pattern Saturday, awaiting progress by its sister rig, the Development Driller III, which is drilling the primary relief well and ran into a minor snag while preparing for a procedure known as a static kill that will make it easier to stop the gusher for good.

NOWSHERA, Pakistan (AP) — The death toll in the massive flooding in Pakistan surged past 800 as floodwaters receded Saturday in the hard-hit northwest, an official said. The damage to roads, bridges and communications networks hindered rescuers, while the threat of disease loomed as some evacuees arrived in camps with fever, diarrhea and skin problems. Even for a country used to tragedy — especially deadly suicide attacks by Taliban militants — the scale of this past week’s flooding has been shocking. Monsoon rains come every year, but rarely with such fury. The devastation came in the wake of the worstever plane crash in Pakistan, which killed 152 people in Islamabad on Wednesday. In neighboring eastern Afghanistan, floods killed 64 people and injured 61 others in the past week, while destroying hundreds of homes and huge stretches of farmland, according to Matin Edrak, director of the Afghan government’s disaster department. As rivers swelled in Pakistan’s northwest, people sought ever-shrinking high ground or grasped for trees and fences to avoid getting swept away. Buildings simply crumbled into the raging river in Kalam, a town in the northern part of the Swat Valley, Geo TV showed Saturday. Reports coming in from districts around the northwest, where such flooding has not been seen since 1929, showed at least 800 people had died, said Mian Iftikhar Hussain, the region’s information minister. The U.N. estimated that some 1 million people nationwide were affected by the disaster, though it didn’t specify exactly what that meant.

RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — President Barack Obama warned Mahmoud Abbas in a letter that U.S.-Palestinian relations might suffer if the Palestinian leader refuses to resume direct peace talks with Israel, a senior PLO official said Saturday. The White House had no comment Saturday. However, the Obama administration has been pushing Abbas hard in recent days to move quickly to face-to-face negotiations. The PLO official said Obama sent the letter — the strongest U.S. warning to Abbas yet — on July 16. Abbas insists he will only negotiate once Israel commits to the idea of a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, with minor modifications. He also wants Israel to freeze all settlement construction in those areas. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refuses to be pinned down ahead of talks and has put in place only a 10month freeze in housing starts in the West Bank that is due to expire in September.

tents are seen at Astor courts in rhinebeck, N.Y., right, as a sailboat moves along the Hudson river past the rondout Lighthouse in Port ewen, N.Y., on saturday.

RHINEBECK, N.Y. (AP) — Chelsea Clinton wed her longtime boyfriend under extraordinary security at an elegant Hudson River estate late Saturday. Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton announced in a statement that their daughter wed investment banker Marc Mezvinsky after weeks of secrecy and buildup that had celebrity watchers flocking to the small village of Rhinebeck for the evening nuptials. The site of the wedding, a Beaux Arts riverside estate called Astor Courts, was sealed off from the general public. “Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and their close friends,” the Clintons said. “We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family. On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day.” Chelsea Clinton, wearing a strapless white gown with a full skirt and silver beading around the waist and carrying a bouquet of white flowers, was escorted down the aisle by her father. The former president and the groom wore dark suits, while the mother of the bride wore a fuchsia dress. It is estimated that hun-

The ceremony was conducted by a rabbi and a reverend as Chelsea Clinton is Methodist and Mezvinsky is Jewish, and included a poem by Leo Marks titled, “The Life That I Have,” according to the family. The wedding was a mix of high society and high security. The road to Astor Courts was blocked off Saturday — neighbors received bottles of wine for their troubles — and the sky above was declared a no-fly zone by federal aviation officials. Police and security guards fanned out around this usually sleepy town.

Busch wins


NEWTON, Iowa — Kyle Busch raced to his sixth victory in his last seven Nationwide starts and ninth of the season Saturday night, leading 209 of 250 laps in a dominating run at Iowa Speedway. Busch moved a victory away from the series season victory record of 10 he shares with Sam Ard. Busch, a 10time winner in 2008, is second in series history with 39 victories — nine behind Mark Martin’s record. Kevin Harvick was second, followed by Jason Leffler and Brad Keselowski in front of a standing-room only crowd of roughly 55,000.

Trevor Bayne, who became the first Nationwide driver in 18 years to capture three consecutive poles earlier Saturday, finished fifth. Harvick took the lead from Busch during a late pit stop by taking just two tires while Busch grabbed four. But Busch had the strongest car of the night, and he proved it by zipping past Harvick on the outside with 25 laps to go on the 0.875-mile oval. For the second week in a row, Busch won without running a single practice lap. Busch, who started second after flying back from practice for the Sprint Cup race Saturday at Pocono, grabbed the lead from Bayne on the opening lap, marking the 17th

PASADENA, Calif. — We think we know what to expect with Lane Kiffin. That if you get near enough to USC’s new football coach, you can hear the ticking. His reputation is, wherever he goes, bombs go off. He left his employer in Oakland and fans in Tennessee spitting mad. His triumphant return home to Troy and his dream job last winter was pockmarked with ethical questions about his staff’s contact with Tennessee recruits. Shortly after arriving, he said his aggressively irritating approach his one year in Tennessee was about attracting attention, something he wouldn’t have to do at already-elite USC. Then he offered a 13year-old quarterback a scholarship, precisely the kind of dubious and overtly splashy move that the Trojans don’t have to do. Meanwhile, waiting for the NCAA to sanction his program for violations during

Pete Carroll’s tenure, his recruits were assured that the punishment wouldn’t be serious. Two years of bowl bans and 30 pulled scholarships (over three years) later, Kiffin can only say, “No one around the program thought they would be that associated press severe.” LANE KIFFIN As for the disconnect between his spin and NCAA reality, he believes it wasn’t that big of a deal, since only a handful of players, including two recruits, have opted to leave in the wake of the penalties. And just for good measure last week, his awkward hiring of Tennessee Titans assistant Kennedy Pola caused Titans coach Jeff Fisher, himself a USC alum, to

Toby’s the man in West victory BY MIKE LONDON mlondon

CHINA GROVE — Toby Brown, a W. Rowan 65 3 8 - y e a r N. Rowan 60 old truckdriver, took the wheel and steered West Rowan to a grueling 65-60 win against North Rowan in a Throwback Alumni Tournament semifinal on Saturday afternoon. Brown, who played college ball at High P o i n t , poured in 26 points and got help from youngsters Jamel BROWN Carpenter, Fayetteville State’s team MVP last season, and Terris Sifford, a 2001 West grad who plays professionally in Europe. Carpenter scored the last five points of the game, taking charge the way a twotime Rowan County Player of the Year should. “Jamel’s in great shape,” North’s 44-year-old Andrew

Mitchell said with a sigh. “Youth took over at the end.” Brown was sensational early, and West reeled off the first 15 points of game against the stunned Cavs. “It’s 15-love,” shouted one of the tennis fans in the Carson gym. It didn’t stay 15-love long.

They had too many good players.” Brown had 13 by halftime and Sifford had nine, but the Falcons were clinging to a 34-32 lead, and momentum had clearly switched colors from light blue to green. Brown had cooled off. “Old school hits a few shots, but then the young guys figure him out a little bit,” Brown said with a grin. “I’d stiffened up a little bit.” When Suber, whose basketball odyssey has included stops in Turkey and Hun-

West Rowan shuts down Salisbury for title BY JORDAN


CHINA GROVE — The champiW. Rowan 65 onship of Salisbury 53 the inaugural Scooter Sherrill Alumni Basketball Tournament ended with a 65-53 West Rowan victory over Salisbury. The Falcons enjoyed the rare feat of beating their two biggest hoops rivals on the same day. West, which went 30 in the event, had edged North Rowan 65-60 in a Saturday afternoon semifinal to earn a shot at top-seeded Salisbury in the final.

“This was a great opportunity and a great idea by Scooter to have this tournament, and hopefully we can do this for years and years,” West’s Jamel Carpenter said. “It was definitely great to win the first one.” From the tip, this game was one that would have made the old-school Pistons, the “Bad Boys,” very proud. Tough, in-traffic rebounds and hard fouls filled the contest and several players from both teams were victims of elbows to the head and face. Salisbury attempted to use the same strategy that got it to the final, hammering the ball inside to Marvin Dixon and

Scotty Robinson, but West countered and overcame the Hornets with sharp shooting from distance. Dixon led Salisbury with 20 points, and Levar Hamilton added 17, but not much help came from elsewhere. Carpenter led the champs with 16 points while Terris Sifford notched 13. Toby Brown scored 11 and Alphonso “Snip” Keaton contributed 10. “This was just a lot of fun and a good break for me from football, and we would have liked to have won, but it’s great to play with these guys,” Robinson said. “My hat’s off to West. They played great.” Some big names were miss-

ing from the championship game, as fans would have liked to have seen Sherrill playing for West and ex-NBA guard Bobby Jackson suiting up for Salisbury. Nonetheless, the fans were treated to good, hard-fought hoops. “I’m very happy with how everything turned out — it was more than I expected,” Sherrill said. “ Next year, we are going to try to have better uniforms, cheerleaders, and get the ladies involved so I’m excited about that. “These guys were diving on the floor after loose balls and fighting for rebounds and re-


Braves among teams making trades Associated Press

the Kansas city royals sent Kyle Farnsworth to the Braves.

CINCINNATI — The Atlanta Braves made a five-player deal Saturday to upgrade their outfield and an already formidable bullpen, acquiring Rick Ankiel and righthander Kyle Farnsworth from Kansas City for three players. The NL East leaders are trying to fend off a charge by second-place Philadelphia, which had cut a seven-game deficit to 31⁄2 entering play on Saturday. The Phillies also made one of baseball’s most high-profile trades this week, acquiring starter Roy Oswalt from Houston. Atlanta sent reliever Jesse Chavez, outfielder Gregor Blanco and minor league pitcher Tim Collins to the Royals. Kansas City included cash in the deal. Ankiel joins an outfield that currently features rookie Jason Heyward in right, Melky Cabrera in center and Eric Hinske in

left. The Braves demoted struggling outfielder Nate McLouth — who started a teamleading 52 games in center — to the minors four days ago with a .168 average. “Ankiel’s a tremendous outfielder, a great athlete,” third baseman Chipper Jones said. “Hopefully he helps solidify things out there in center.” The 31-year-old Ankiel batted .261 with four homers and 15 RBIs in 27 games for the Royals, who signed him to a one-year, $3.25 million deal. He has missed time with an injured right thigh. Farnsworth joins a bullpen that is already one of the NL’s best, bringing the Braves a hard thrower who can help them get to closer Billy Wagner. The 34-year-old Farnsworth is 3-0 with a 2.42 ERA. He’s in the second year of a two-year, $9.25 million deal.

 Rowan Rampage The Rowan Rampage lost 34-0 to the Carolina Chargers on Saturday at the Dunbar Center. The Chargers (a RaleighDurham franchise formerly known as the Triangle Rattlers) capitalized on Rampage mistakes and mental breakdowns and passed for four touchdowns. The Carolina QB also scrambled for one score. The Rampage (2-1) was shut down offensively and trailed 21-0 at halftime. Rowan’s defense forced turnovers in the second half and the offense moved the ball more efficiently behind the play of QB/receiver D.J. Lyles, but the Rampage couldn’t convert any of its drives into points. “There LYLES weren’t a whole lot of bright spots,” Rampage player/owner Scott Roby said. “We did have some key injuries to (center) Mike Singleton and (free safety) Marty Wooten, but we were simply out-gunned.” The Rampage enjoyed most of its offensive production on the ground in earlier games, and getting down early put the team in a catch-up mode and neutralized running back Willie Hosch, the Rampage’s biggest weapon. “Give the Chargers credit,” Roby said. “They have a load of talent and size at every position. They’ve got a bunch of guys who have played together for years (mostly at N.C. Central), and they’re coached by a former NFL player. “That’s never stopped us from putting the boots to them before, but today we made mistakes. Coaches made mistakes and players made mistakes.” Roby said the team expects to bounce back from a tough day. Rowan is on the road next Saturday against the Carolina Renegades at Atkins High in Winston-Salem. “It’s early and a loss this

Panthers in need of leaders

The Panthers notebook ... SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Chris Gamble feels old at 27. Jordan Gross was struck by all the new faces in the stretching lines at practice. And Jeff King knows the few veterans remaining must take on much larger roles. After an offseason roster purge, the Carolina Panthers are left with the third youngest roster in the NFL and an urgent need at training camp to fill a leadership vacuum. “This game is a young man’s game,” coach John Fox said Saturday. “There’s transition, there’s change every season. With both free agency and the draft, there’s going to be change. We kind of just hit it that way this year.” Did they ever. In an effort to begin a youth movement and shed payroll ahead of possible labor unrest next year, the Panthers rid their roster of starters Jake Delhomme (35 years old), Muhsin Muhammad (37), Brad Hoover (33), Keydrick Vincent (32), Julius Peppers (30), Damione Lewis (32), Maake Kemoeatu (31), Na’il Diggs (32) and Chris Harris (27). “Even in team stretch line and team takeoff and all that, you look to your left and right and definitely some familiar faces are gone,” said Gross, the starting left tackle. “But it’s good, there’s more energy.” SPEEDY GOODSON The white shoes may make it look like Mike Goodson is faster these days. A year’s experience and a better understanding of the offense helps even more.

Jordan Gross (69) is being counted on to be a leader. The second-year Carolina Panthers running back with the shiny shoes is getting an extended look early in training camp because of injuries to Jonathan Stewart and Tyrell Sutton. After the former fourthround pick had just 22 carries as a rookie last year, he spent the offseason making sure he’s comfortable with the offensive system. BIG CAT ARRIVES Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, 18 months removed from receiving a heart transplant, appeared to have more energy than in the past as he watched the morning practice while zipping around on a golf cart. Richardson, who turned 74 two weeks ago, had several passengers in his cart during the workout, including general manager Marty Hurney and receiver Steve Smith, who is sidelined with a broken arm. “It’s great. The guys love seeing them. We enjoy it,” coach John Fox said. “Luckily, Steve Smith had him in the right areas of the field so we didn’t get him hurt.” MARTIN’S FINGER Receiver Charly Martin is out indefinitely after breaking a finger on his left hand in practice on Friday.

The Panthers were greeted with unseasonably cool conditions for the morning workout, which also included a brief downpour. “I told the guys we ordered it up just perfect,” Fox said. “We had two hot days and Marty (Hurney) has got this new machine down here that can control the weather and made it nice, about 82 degrees this morning.” ...

Sturdivant’s charges dropped Associated Press

RALEIGH — Prosecutors have dropped a drug charge against a North Carolina linebacker after he entered a deferred prosecution agreement. Stanly County prosecutor John Phillips told The Charlotte Observer on Friday that Quan Sturdivant will be required to complete 24 hours of community service and have a substance abuse assessment. His case was dismissed last week. Sturdivant was charged July 10 with simple possession of less than a half-ounce of marijuana during a traffic stop. North Carolina coach Butch Davis said after Sturdivant’s arrest that the All-Atlantic Coast Conference performer would be disciplined, but did not say what the punishment would be. Sturdivant led the team last season with 79 tackles. • ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A former assistant football coach has sued the University of New Mexico and coach Mike Locksley over an altercation between the two men last year. J.B. Gerald filed the lawsuit Friday in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque against Locksley and the University of New Mexico Board of Regents. According to the lawsuit, Locksley attacked Gerald on Sept. 20 by choking him, punching him in the face, and cursing at him in front of peers and athletes, and should have to pay damages to Gerald. The suit also claims the university engaged in racial discrimination against Gerald, who is black, by failing to take appropriate action.

He believes he has “Hebrew roots” through his mother, Carrie. “She studied the scriptures and history and she believes she is a Hebrew,” he told The Associated Press on Friday in Jerusalem. “I grew up in a very spiritual home. It’s not about religion, it’s about spirituality for me.”

ASHBURN, Va. — Albert Haynesworth came to work Saturday morning with a slightly swollen knee, forcing him to scrap his latest chance to pass the Washington Redskins conditioning test and keeping him exiled from practice for yet another day.

TRADES FROM 1B Atlanta’s bullpen leads the NL with 21 wins and is second to San Diego with a 3.22 ERA. “Farnsworth — we know he can be really dominant,” Jones said. • Former All-Stars Jake Westbrook, Ted Lilly, Ryan Ludwick and Kerry Wood were traded Saturday as pennant contenders played a game of beat-the-clock. Lance Berkman went to the World Series champion New York Yankees after rejecting the Chicago White Sox. Octavio Dotel, Chad Qualls and Ryan Theriot also joined the playoff chase and Ryan Church highlighted a five-player deal between last-place teams. The swaps came as clubs scrambled before the 4 p.m. EDT deadline for making trades without waivers. It was a day full of deals between haves and have-nots — veterans for prospects, mostly. The NL Central-leading St. Louis Cardinals were the prime players in a threeteam trade, getting Westbrook from Cleveland and sending Ludwick to NL Central-leading San Diego. “I’m excited to go to a club that’s contending for a playoff spot and pitch in

some meaningful ballgames,” Westbrook said. “That’s why you play the game, to get a chance to play in the playoffs and I look forward to doing that.” The Yankees plucked Wood from Cleveland, shortly after finishing off the deal to get Berkman from Houston. The Astros sent $4 million and Berkman, the Yankees’ new designated hitter, for reliever Mark Melancon and minor league infielder Jimmy Paredes. In other deals: • NL East-leading Atlanta acquired outfielder Rick Ankiel, reliever Kyle Farnsworth and cash from Kansas City for pitchers Tim Collins and Jesse Chavez and outfielder Gregor Blanco. • The Los Angeles Dodgers, seven games behind San Diego, got the lefthanded Lilly, Theriot and about $2.5 million from the Chicago Cubs for infielder Blake DeWitt and minor league right-handers Kyle Smit and Brett Wallach. The Dodgers also boosted their bullpen by obtaining Dotel from Pittsburgh. • AL West-leading Texas traded catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia to Boston for pitcher Roman Mendez, first baseman Chris McGuiness, a player to be named later and cash. • Tampa Bay got Qualls from Arizona for a player to

One of these days, of course, things are going to turn more positive for the Trojans — probably around the time they crush Hawaii in their first game of the year on Sept. 2. But you have to wonder if Kiffin can ever completely shut off the flow of crud that follows him around and sticks to his shoes. When I referred to the “string of negative news” since he arrived, he calmly disputed the premise. “I’ve been here six months,” he said in a friendly, almost deferential voice that seems antithetical to his havoc-wreaking image. “I think you’d struggle to pull up anything controversial that I’ve said.” We’ll give him that one. But, of course, it’s not the stuff he’s said, it’s the stuff that’s happened. Thursday at Pac-10 Media Day at the Rose Bowl, Kiffin answered a ton of questions about the sanctions, USC’s 2009 stumble and especially his own image, but he was neither defensive nor testy. “Bad guy?” he said, answering one question with a smile. “I don’t think I’ve heard that one.” Part of the problem may be the disingenuous way he explains away bad news. As if it doesn’t really exist. Or there are misunderstandings. Or it’s just football fans being passionate. He appears to be a likeable guy. His quarterback, Matt Barkley, said he’s “more subdued” and not as animated as their former boss, Carroll, but “he will get in your grill” if things aren’t done right. “He’s not what people make him out to be — like he’s a betrayer,” said Barkley, standing up for his new coach.

elliott sadler celebrates. what to expect here.” No one was happier than Sadler, whose first trucks win made him the 21st driver to get victories in all three NASCAR series. It was also Sadler’s spin down Victory Lane since finishing first in the Sprint Cup race at Fontana in 2004, when he contended for the title. Sadler has struggled since then, and Pocono may be just the spark that he was looking for to boost his Sprint Cup fortunes. “It’s hard to put into words what this means to me ... to have a tough couple years like we’ve had in the Cup series,” said Sadler, who hasn’t finished better than 17th in a Sprint Cup race this year. He’ll start 29th for the 500mile race Sunday at Pocono. Other than Sadler, the first Pocono trucks race also featured Sprint Cup stars Kahne and Denny Hamlin, who finished ninth. Each took their shots challenging Sadler, who never strayed too far from the front after starting on the pole. Kahne took the lead on a restart on lap 44 before Donny Lia and Chase Mattioli got tangled up less than a lap later to bring the caution out. Sadler took the lead on the next restart before Ron Hornaday spun off to bring out another caution.

LONG POND, Pa. — Pocono Raceway keeps taking hits. Often criticized by drivers for unnecessary 500mile races and for clogging two spots on the Sprint Cup schedule, the 21/2-mile triangle track is now deemed by some unsafe after an accident in the June race involving Kasey Kahne. The rally cry of “shorten the races” has morphed into “make them safer.” Track president Brandon Igdalsky is listening — and he’s promising to do what it takes to improve the track. “Do we need to make changes? Yes,” he said. Greg Biffle offered the harshest critique in a recent Sports Illustrated story, saying “they’re going to kill somebody there.” He added: “If they don’t change that racetrack — maybe not next year, maybe not three years from now — they’ll hurt somebody there.” Igdalsky wants the feedback — even as he feels Biffle overstated the danger — and has already started planning safety improvements. The track is adding more SAFER barriers in time for next year’s race and would like to install a catch fence along the non-grandstand areas. The barriers would be installed along the inside wall between turns 1 and 2 and down the “Long Pond” stretch.

There are a lot of people standing up for Kiffin right now. The players who stayed. His staff. USC alumni, who want him to succeed. His new athletic director, Pat Haden. The most important thing, of course, to all of them, is that he win football games, and at least resemble, if he can’t duplicate, the Carroll Era successes. But Kiffin has his own challenge in front of him: a need to eliminate the controversies and the personal missteps, or it could be a short stay for him at USC, because some people think they know who he is (tick, tick, tick) and are expecting the worst. “I’ve been controversial in the past,” he conceded at one point. “So you live with your history.” If he can just stop repeating it. • METAIRIE, La. — Running back Reggie Bush said he would not let the distractions of USC’s probation and the school’s subsequent ostracizing of him affect his performance with the Saints. Talking publicly for the first time Saturday since USC sent back its replica of the 2005 Heisman Trophy Award he won and eliminated nearly all mention of him on its campus, Bush said he had no choice but to move on. The Saints are in the second day of training camp. “The whole situation is terrible, and nobody feels worse about than I do,” Bush said. “At the same time, I can’t dwell on the negative. I have a job to do, and I have a whole organization and city riding on my back. Not just my back, but the team.” Bush, the No. 2 overall draft pick in 2006, had career-lows of 390 rushing yards and 335 receiving yards last season. His highlight was an 83-yard punt return against the Arizona Cardinals in the division round of the NFC playoffs, the thirdlongest in playoff history.

Pocono promises changes

Associated Press

LONG POND, Pa. — Tears welled up in Elliott Sadler’s eyes as he drove his No. 2 truck past the white flag. Finally, victory was within reach. After cutting off Matt Crafton’s pass attempt inside on a restart, the veteran driver pulled away from Kasey Kahne on the final lap of Saturday’s Truck Series race at Pocono for his first NASCAR win in six years. “You sit at home a lot wondering if you’re ever going to make it back to Victory Lane,” said Sadler, a former Sprint Cup series contender who has struggled in recent years. “This time, I know it’s recent, I know it’s today, but it feels like the biggest win of my career.” The inaugural trucks race at Pocono Raceway was a hit with drivers despite a flurry of late mishaps around the 2.5mile tri-oval. Kahne finished second, Crafton was third and points leader Todd Bodine wound up 12th. After a relatively smooth start, things got bumpy in the second half of the 125-mile race with drivers often going three-wide — or sometimes four-wide — around the turns. The racing down the straightaways was just as exciting to Crafton. “You get two trucks sideby-side, and you’ll be 10 back, and by the end of the front straightaway, you’ll be on top of them,” Crafton said. “I honestly didn’t know with the race

Bayne gave Busch all he could handle through the first third of the race and finally jumped back in front 76 laps in. Bayne was the first driver to start out front in three straight races since Jeff Gordon did it in 1992, and at 19 he’s also the youngest to do so. Bayne has yet to turn all that qualifying speed into a victory, though. He began to fade as the sun went down and was overtaken by Harvick two-thirds of the way in. Bayne’s best finish came at Gateway two weeks ago when he crossed third. Brian Keselowski drilled Colin Braun after Braun slid

Brendan Gaughan, Paul Menard and Mark Green were also collected in the crash, which brought out a red flag. Busch retook the lead on the restart and was 3 seconds ahead by the midway point. With Sunday’s race at Pocono nearly 1,000 miles

away from Iowa, only eight drivers are doing double-duty this weekend. That gave hope to many of the Nationwideonly drivers that they could snap a 16-race winless streak dating to Justin Allgaier’s win at Bristol in March. Alas, that stretch is now at 17 races. Leffler’s third-place finish was tops among Nationwide-only drivers.

Uggla sets HR record for Marlins Associated Press

SAN DIEGO — Ricky Nolasco took a two-hitter into the ninth inning, Dan Uggla hit his 144th home run to become Florida’s franchise leader and Mike Stanton also homered to lead the Florida Marlins to a 63 win over the NL West-leading San Diego Padres on Saturday night. The Padres’ lead in the division is down to 11⁄2 games over the San Francisco Giants, San Diego’s slimmest lead since July 10 when it was one game up on Colorado. With the Marlins leading 6-1, Nolasco (12-7) was two outs from his second complete game of the season and fifth of his career before giving up a two-run single to Adrian Gonzalez. Leo Nunez finished for his 26th save in 31 chances. Nationals 7, Phillies 5 WASHINGTON — Ryan Zimmerman hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning to lead Washington. Zimmerman’s one-out drive onto the grass-covered batters eye in center field came on a fastball from Brad Lidge (1-1). Rockies 6, Cubs 5 DENVER — Carlos Gonzalez hit a gameending home run to complete the cycle, and Colorado rallied to win after blowing a three-run lead in the eighth inning. Gonzalez became the sixth Rockies player to hit for the cycle and the first since Troy Tulowitzki did it last Aug. 10, also against the Cubs. Derrek Lee hit a tying three-run homer in the eighth off Rafael Betancourt. Cardinals 11, Pirates 1 ST. LOUIS — Albert Pujols hit his 24th homer and finished with three hits, helping Jeff Suppan get his first win since September. Colby Rasmus hit a two-run homer and an RBI single for the Cardinals, who are 115 since the All-Star break. Mets 5, Diamondbacks 4 NEW YORK — Jesus Feliciano tripled

Ryan Zimmerman (11) is mobbed by his Washington Nationals teammates after he hit a game-deciding homer on Saturday night. and scored on Carlos Beltran’s sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, lifting the New York Mets past Arizona. Astros 6, Brewers 0 HOUSTON — Wandy Rodriguez added another impressive start to his dazzling streak and Houston’s young hitters got off to a fast start against Milwaukee. Reds 5, Braves 2 CINCINNATI — Ryan Hanigan hit a tiebreaking double during a wacky seventhinning rally and Cincinnati held on against Atlanta. Hanigan doubled to the wall in center off Jair Jurrjens (3-4), who has yet to win on

the road. Two runs scored while Melky Cabrera chased the ball to the wall. When the outfielder turned and threw quickly, the ball slipped from his hand and rolled across the outfield, allowing the catcher to chug home. Giants 2, Dodgers 1 SAN FRANCISCO — Pat Burrell lined a go-ahead two-run homer into the left-field seats with two outs in the eighth inning, rallying San Francisco past Los Angeles. Chad Billingsley extended his scoreless innings streak to 212⁄3 spanning three starts, but the bullpen couldn’t hold a one-run lead.

Ortiz delivers 18th walkoff hit of career Associated Press

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Cardinals retired former manager Whitey Herzog's No. 24 in a ceremony Saturday before St. Louis played the Pittsburgh Pirates. The sold-out crowd at Busch Stadium gave the newly inducted Hall of Famer a prolonged standing ovation after team owner Bill DeWitt made the announcement. “You built a platform that we are happy to still have going today," said DeWitt. “We will permanently retire No. 24 in your honor today.” The 78-year-old Herzog was brought onto the field in a carriage pulled by two Clydesdales, Diamonds and Pops. Also in attendance were members of the 1985 National League championship team led by Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith. “It’s a wonderful experience,” Herzog said. “I was recently inducted into the Hall of Fame in Coopertown, N.Y., and it was a wonderful honor. But let me tell you folks, to be here tonight with my number being retired at Busch Stadium in front of these players who are responsible for me being here and you fans, that's really great. “I want thank you Mr. DeWitt and the organization for this honor,” he said. “I couldn't be happier. Thank you very much.”

BOSTON — David Ortiz lined a three-run double to the left-center gap with one out in the ninth inning Saturday to give the Boston Red Sox a 5-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday. It was the 18th game-ending hit of his career. Hideki Okajima (4-3) pitched a perfect ninth inning. Yankees 5, Rays 4 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Robinson Cano's 21st home run of the season snapped a ninthinning tie and enabled New York to beat Tampa Bay and hang on to first place in the AL East. While Alex Rodriguez failed for the ninth consecutive game to hit his 600th career homer, Mark Teixeira and Nick Swish-

er went deep for the defending world champions, who rallied from an early deficit against Matt Garza before beating AllStar closer Rafael Soriano (2-1) on Cano's drive into the right field seats. Rodriguez, 9-for-37 with eight RBIs since hitting career homer No. 599 on July 22, went 0-for-3 with a walk and one strikeout. David Robertson (2-3) pitched a perfect inning for the win.

Athletics 6, White Sox 2 CHICAGO — Dallas Braden pitched his third complete game of the season, Kevin Kouzmanoff homered among his three hits and Oakland ended the White Sox's 12-game home winning streak. Braden (6-7), who beat the White Sox on July 25 in Oakland to end his five-game skid and win for the first time since pitching a perfect game May 9,

held the White Sox to two runs eight hits. He won consecutive starts for the first time since winning three straight from Aril 11-22.

Salisbury’s Randall Jones drives past Jamel Carpenter for a layup.


to save a ball headed out of bounds in front of the North bench. That kept a critical possession alive, and St. Paul’s alum Tristan Rankin (15 points) calmly drilled a 3-pointer to give the Cavs a 57-53 lead. Rankin’s bomb shoved West against the ropes, but Brown wouldn’t let his team be knocked out, even though he once was a longshot to be on the floor for this sort of game. “Bad back trouble,” Brown explained. “It kept me from playing for three years, but I love this game.” Brown averaged 20.6 points a game for a 24-6 West team as a senior in 1990. He scored the 1,000th point of his career in his final game as a Falcon — a regional loss to Kings Mountain. At that time, he was only the second in West history to reach the milestone and the first in 22 years. Brown is one of the people this alumni tournament is all about. Since Brown graduated,

FROM 1B gary, somehow buried a contested, pullup 28-footer with 5:30 remaining, North went in front 5451 and led for the first time. Any shot that goes in is a good shot, and Suber knocked down an amazing one. “Even when we got down so much early, we knew we’d still make a run at it,” Mitchell said. “I’ve been up 15-0 many times as a coach, and then you look up again and it’s tied.” It got extra-serious down the stretch with fans screaming, refs trying to maintain control of the wrestling matches in the paint, and players pleading for calls and digging in on defense and drawing charges. North’s 42-year-old Jimmy Kesler made a hustle play that had fans high-fiving with 4:05 left. Kesler dived headlong on elbows, knees — and heart —

ally playing physical and with a lot of pride, which I didnt expect, but it was great to see.” Salisbury, 1-1 in the tournament, fell to a West team that had several players from their back-to-back state championship teams. One such player who hadn’t played in the tournament prior to this game was 6-foot7 former Winthrop standout and overseas professional Phillip Williams. Williams was needed to counter Salisbury’s Dixon and Robinson inside and scored seven points. Sifford, a 2001 West grad who now plays professionally in Spain, was hit in the eye from an elbow early in the game and shaken up a bit, but he was able to bounce back and pace West down the stretch. “I was off tonight, but the other guys were able to pick me up,” Sifford said. “It’s great playing against and with all of my friends from high school. They were bigger and were fatigued, but we had

10 more Falcons have scored 1,000 and two — Sherrill and Donte Minter — scored 2,000. Brown helped get all that tradition rolling, and it was fitting that he stepped forward and made the 3-pointer that saved the Falcons on Saturday. After a wild scramble with three minutes left, Brown found himself with the ball wide open at the 3-point arc, and he didn’t flinch. West’ four-point deficit suddenly was down to one. A steal by Carpenter led to a bucket that made it 60-60 with two minutes left, and North didn’t score again. “We did things we shouldn’t have late,” Mitchell analyzed. “We kept trying to score when we should have forced West to play defense and foul us.” The 6-foot-3 Carpenter posted up the 5-9 Suber for the bucket that put West ahead to stay with 1:12 left. Sifford forced a difficult shot by Bryan McCullough, and Carpenter hit two clutch free

throws with 23 seconds left for a four-point lead. Carpenter sealed it with another steal and made one more free throw to close the scoring. “That ball was a little slick trying to shoot those free throws,” a beaming Carpenter said. “I think they switched balls on us at halftime.” Carpenter still made enough shots to propel West into the championship game against topseeded Salisbury. “I really like that young man’s game,” Brown said of Carpenter. “And he’s still got some time to improve.” Brown needs no improvement. “Old School” has still got it. norTh roWan (60) — Suber 16, Rankin 15, McCullough 11, Mitchell 5, Bates 5, Hill 4, Kesler 2, House 2, Williams, Blackwell, Geter.

Workshop to help human resources professionals Business Roundup

The Cabarrus Regional Society for Human Resource Management and the Rowan County Human Resources Association will jointly sponsor a workshop Aug. 11 called “Adding Value to any Organization”. The workshop at the Vintage Motor Club, 325 McGill Ave., Suite 150, Concord, will be from 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The presenters will be Terry Dunn from Positive Management Leadership USA Inc., Angela C. Corbet, The Mobius Company, Rob Ferguson, The Benefit Planning Group and Jonathan Crotty, Parker Poe. Spiraling health-care costs, retirement uncertainty and workforce retention and engagement scratch the surface of the challenges facing human resources professionals today. Add in legal and regulatory compliance and the need for knowledge and solutions has never been more acute. The sessions offer tools needed to do one’s

job better. A silent auction will also be held. All proceeds will be donated to the Victory Junction. As with last year, school supply donations will be accepted for both Cabarrus and Rowan schools. The workshop is free for Rowan and Cabarrus HR members. For non-members, the workshop is $55 for all day, or $45 for half day — either a.m. or p.m. session. The cost of the workshop also includes breakfast and lunch. The workshop has been approved for 5.0 re-certification (2 strategic & 3 general) HRCI recertification credit

Kannapolis store offers them all for $5.99 a yard BY SHELLEY SMITH

abric Connection, a fabrics-forless store, has opened in Kannapolis, and is selling all fabrics for only $5.99 per yard. “We’re like the dollar store of fabric stores,” said Jerel Sangandi, owner and manager of Fabric Connection. Sangandi opened the store June 14 for people wanting to redecorate their homes in a weakened economy. “The economy is still tough right now,” he said. “People still want home furnishings, but can’t afford it. If they come here, they can get fabric that would normally cost $20 to $30 a yard for $5.99.” Fabric Connection offers upholsteries, sheers, outdoor fabrics, draperies, fringes and trims — and it has quite a


collection. If someone is looking for a particular print or pattern, and it isn’t at the store, Sangandi has a warehouse filled with fabrics. He promises he can find just what customers The Fabric Connection has plenty of colors and styles to choose from. are looking for. “We have any pattern to fit anyone’s needs or style,” he said, noting for furniture upholsterers and seamthe store has paisleys, florals, stripes stresses if customers want to conand abstract patterns.

BBB says banned magazine sales company going door to door again

Licensed cosmetologist joins Shear Blessings Salon

CHARLOTTE — Summer is primetime for companies to send groups of young people throughout the country selling magazines door-to-door. Some of these companies are legitimate, but other companies have generated so many complaints that the BBB has labeled door-to-door magazine sales as a “highly-suspect” industry. One of the companies that has generated the most complaints nationwide is Trinity Public Relations, a magazine sales business owned by James and Lourdes Davis, formerly based in Charlotte. The BBB has issued another consumer warning about Trinity Public Relations Inc. because the company once again has sales representatives going door-to-door in Charlotte neighborhoods this summer. Trinity Public Relations operated in Tampa, Fla., from 2003 until 2005. After racking up 68 BBB complaints there, the Florida Attorney General closed the business down in 2005. Next, the Davises moved their magazine sales operation to North Carolina. The BBB began receiving complaints in October of 2005. From 2005 through 2007, consumers filed 184 complaints with the BBB against Trinity Public Relations (BBB Grade F). On May 3, 2007, the N.C. Attorney General secured a judgment in Wake County Superior Court that permanently prevents James and Lourdes Davis from owning or operating any business in N.C. that offers or sells magazines. After that action, the Davises changed their business name to Seedtime Publications LLC and rented a mailbox in South Carolina to use as their business address. “The Davises simply moved their mailing address across the state line to S.C. and continued to do business as usual under a new name,”

said BBB President Tom Bartholomy. “Then, within months, consumers who ordered magazines but didn’t receive them, began filing complaints with the BBB.” From 2007 through 2009, consumers filed 125 complaints with the BBB against Seedtime Publications. On Sept. 9, 2009, NBC’s Today Show featured the story of a Concord woman, Elysia Schabel, who had a frightening encounter with a door-todoor magazine sales representative from Trinity Public Relations. The sales rep was verbally abusive to Schabel, and physically threatened to hit her when she wouldn’t buy a magazine. Schabel, who was nine months pregnant at the time, called the police. She then went into labor a few hours later and gave birth that evening. The BBB offers the following advice to avoid getting scammed by door-to-door magazine sales. • Do not allow anyone into your home that you do not know. • If you feel threatened by any door-to-door sales representative, call 911 immediately. • Check businesses out at before making a purchase. • Ask to see the seller’s “peddler’s license” — required to legally sell products door-to-door in many counties. • Don’t be pressured into buying on the spot. Take time to make thoughtful purchases. • Remember that the Federal Trade Commission’s Three-Day Cooling-Off Rule gives you three days to cancel purchases over $25 that are made in your home or at a location that is not the seller’s permanent place of business. • If you are a victim of fraudulent magazine sales or any other scam, file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau at

Can I make changes to my own will? BY BRUCE WILLIAMS United Feature Syndicate

Sunday, Aug. 1










If you live up to your abilities and produce what you're capable of doing, the recognition and reward you're seeking will be there for you in the year ahead. The coming months will be offering you many opportunities to establish yourself. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - You won't have to make a lot of noise, wave your arms or wear a funny tie to capture the attention of your peers. Those who know you already sense much power and strength in your quiet presence. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Don't discount any signals or messages your second sense is picking up, even if some come from left field. Your intuition is likely to be one of the most effective assets that you possess. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - It's always to your advantage to be selective regarding your choice of friends. If you can, associate with those pals who are the thinkers in the group, because something worthwhile could come of it. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Once you realize that most of the impediments that you have been envisioning are all imaginary, clear thinking can take over. Several important matters will be resolved as a result. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - You'll make such an impression that everyone within earshot will take notice when you render an opinion or offer a suggestion. What you have to say will be noteworthy to your listeners. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Let the debtor who owes you know that your patience is coming to an end about waiting for repayment. There's a good chance you could collect what is due. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Stand up and be counted if someone is putting down a good friend who isn't present to defend him/herself. The loyalty you show will further strengthen bonds you have with onlookers. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) - A friend for whom you did a kindness recently hasn't forgotten it. This person has something up his/her sleeve for you, in hopes that it will reward your gracious gesture. Aries (March 21-April 19) - A group of friends is likely to follow your lead about what to do, when to do it and how to do it. You won't let them down, you'll think of something quite original that they'll all enjoy. Taurus (April 20-May 20) - When it comes to a competitive situation, don't tip your hand as to what you have in mind to beat out the others. It'll be a lot more fun for everybody if they don't know what's coming. Gemini (May 21-June 20) - If a friend comes to you hoping you'll be critical of someone s/he dislikes, don't think you have to comply if you think differently. You can only be of help to your pal if you tell them the truth. Cancer (June 21-July 22) - You have the grit and determination to successfully fulfill your intentions.

Judge bars evidence linked to Anna Nicole overdose

ANNA NICOLE SMITH in clown makeup playing with a child. Deputy District Attorney Renee Rose said Smith appeared “loopy” and that Stern asked if she was “on a mushroom trip.” Rose said the 10-year-old seen in the video would testify she saw Stern give Smith liquid medicine from a bottle. But the judge noted that prosecutors don’t know what was in the bottle and don’t have a prescription linked to it. Perry also barred a taped TV interview of Smith when

Terrence Howard to join ‘Law & Order: Los Angeles’ BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Terrence Howard is joining the cast of NBC’s newest “Law & Order” spinoff. Howard will play a deputy district attorney in “Law & Order: Los Angeles,” rotating with Alfred Molina, who was previously announced as a prosecutor on the drama. Series creator Dick Wolf said Friday the combination of

Howard and Molina makes him feel like the manager of the 1961 Yankees. Wolf said he now had his “Mantle and Maris,” referring to sluggers Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. Also joining the cast of “LOLA,” as the “Law & Order” spinoff is nicknamed, is Corey Stoll. He’s in the movie “Salt” and guest-starred in the original “Law & Order.”

legal briefs on whether the photos should be admitted to show the breakdown of the doctor-patient relationship. He said he felt they showed nothing sexual beyond depicting a “playful” relationship. Perry also said he doesn’t understand why the case was not filed in Florida, where Smith died in 2007. Prospective jurors are set to return to court Monday for in-depth questioning, with opening statements scheduled Wednesday in the trial expected to last three months.

she left the Betty Ford Center after treatment for drug and alcohol addiction in 1996. He said it was too far removed in time from events involved in the trial. “For you to say this lady was loaded on drugs for 10 years before these people came along — I don’t know how this helps your case,” the judge told Rose. He said jurors could be told Smith had undergone treatment at the center. Perry also said he was uncomfortable with the prosecution’s claim that the doctors violated the law by prescribing to Smith under assumed names. Witnesses are likely to testify that is the norm in the celebrity community. “That’s not what this case is about,” Perry said. “The case is about were they overprescribing and was she addicted.” Perry said he might allow a brief snippet of video from a party showing Kapoor nuzzling Smith. The prosecution claims the interaction shows a breakdown of the doctor-patient relationship. The same allegation was raised regarding photos of Smith and Eroshevich naked in a bathtub together. The judge asked for more


LOS ANGELES (AP) — The judge in the trial of Anna Nicole Smith’s doctors and lawyer-boyfriend said Friday he was barring all evidence linking the defendants to Smith’s fatal drug overdose because they were not charged with causing her death. Superior Court Judge Robert Perry said he fears the defendants could not get a fair trial if attorneys focused on Smith’s cause of death. Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich and Howard K. Stern have pleaded not guilty to conspiring to illegally provide the former Playboy model with opiates and sedatives. Defense lawyers contend their clients did not know Smith was an addict and that they tried desperately to save the depressed model in her waning years, including a period when she gave birth to a daughter and lost her grown son to a drug overdose. In a series of rulings during the pretrial hearing, the judge also barred admission of a videotape the prosecutor described as one of her strongest pieces of evidence. The tape, which has been broadcast on TV, shows Smith

Here’s what’s wrong with a new mosque at Ground Zero BY CLIFFORD D. MAY

Arizona lawman could be poster child for fighting illegal immigration BY AND

Scripps Howard News Service

ear Mayor Bloomberg, A few questions you might want to ask before approving a mosque for Ground Zero. Your Honor: In regard to the proposal to build an Islamic center at the site of the 9/11/01 terrorist attack in Manhattan, I commend you for saying: “Everything the United States stands for and New York stands for is tolerance and openness, and I think it’s a great message for the world...” But I would urge you to question whether this project truly represents that idea — or whether it undermines it. Start with this: Before this project is approved, surely you should know who will be picking up the more than $100 million tab. Would you not be distressed were it later to be revealed that funds had been contributed by people who finance terrorism?


Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio


HOENIX — Lost in the hoopla over Arizona’s immigration law is the fact that state and local authorities for years have been doing their own aggressive crackdowns in the busiest illegal gateway into the country. Nowhere in the U.S. is local enforcement more present than in metropolitan Phoenix, where Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio routinely carries out sweeps, some in Hispanic neighborhoods, to arrest illegal immigrants. The tactics have made him the undisputed poster boy for local immigration enforcement and the anger that so many authorities feel about the issue. “It’s my job,” said Arpaio, standing beside a sheriff’s truck that has a number for an immigration hot line written on its side. “I have two state (immigration) laws that I am enforcing. It’s not federal, it’s state.”


A ruling Wednesday by a federal judge put on hold parts of the new law that would have required officers to dig deeper into the fight against illegal immigration. Arizona says it was forced to act because the federal government isn’t doing its job to fight immigration. The issue led to demonstrations across the country Thursday, including one directed at Arpaio in Phoenix in which protesters beat on the metal door of a jail and chanted, “Sheriff Joe, we are here. We will not live in fear.” And in another sign of the divisive atmosphere surrounding the issue, authorities said the judge had received menacing threats and police were investigating whether a bullet hole found in the office of an Arizona congressman was related to the immigration debate. Meanwhile, Gov. Jan Brewer’s lawyers went to court to overturn the judge’s ruling so they can fight back against what the Republican calls an “invasion” of illegal immigrants. Ever since the main flow of illegal immigrants into the country shifted to Arizona a decade ago, state politicians and local police have been feeling pressure to confront the state’s border woes. In addition to Arpaio’s crackdowns, other efforts include a

Small S.C. town tries its own immigration law BY BRUCE SMITH Associated Press

UMMERVILLE, S.C. — In a quiet Southern bedroom community of gardens and parks across the country from Arizona, another skirmish in the battle over illegal immigration is brewing. Summerville Councilman Walter Bailey, worried there is a void in immigration laws, has proposed an ordinance that goes farther than state BAILEY law, which was sharpened two years ago to allow police to identify illegal immigrants for deportation. The proposal would prevent illegal immigrants from living in the town of 45,000, which calls itself “Flower Town in the Pines,” and in most cases prevent them from working here. Bailey, a former state prose-


cutor, says it was prompted in part by the Obama administration’s challenge of the new Arizona law that was to have taken effect last week. “It was outrageous that when, by default, the state of Arizona has to go in there and do the job the federal government ought to be doing — instead of showing appreciation and support in Arizona, the federal government sues,” Bailey said. A federal judge on Wednesday blocked key aspects of the Arizona law, but Bailey said his ordinance is different enough that he doesn’t think the judge’s ruling applies. Bailey’s proposal not only requires most employers to check the immigration status of workers but those who rent homes or apartments in town would have


to prove they are citizens or in the country legally. “The federal government and to a lesser extent the state government is not doing a whole lot about the immigration problem,” he said. He expects some council opposition but says most of the people he has spoken to favor the ordinance. Two years ago, the state passed a tough immigration law allowing State Law Enforcement Division officers to train with federal agencies in immigration enforcement. Since 2006, almost 116,000 people have been sent out of the U.S. by officers in 64 law enforcement agencies nationwide deputized to help enforce immigration laws under the federallocal partnership, called the 287(g) program. But SLED Chief Reggie Lloyd

Workers and those who rent homes or apartments in town would have to prove they are citizens or in the country legally.

says the agency’s state budget has been cut since the South Carolina law passed and told lawmakers this year while illegals are arrested for serious crimes, the agency doesn’t have the resources to enforce workplace immigration checks. Bailey’s ordinance is based on a recent Fremont, Neb., ordinance already under court challenge. He is concerned about a challenge to the Summerville law if it passes but “I don’t think the threat of expensive litigation ought to keep us from doing the right thing. Sometimes you have to figure out what is right and stand up for it and take your lumps.” According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, lawmakers in 44 states passed 191 state laws and adopted 128 resolutions on immigration in the first six months of this year. Five were vetoed. There are numerous local im-

See S.C. TOWN, 4D

You’ll recall that, after the 9/11 attacks, your predecessor, Mayor Rudy Giuliani turned down a $10 million check from a Saudi prince who had said that America shares blame for the atrocity. Feisal Abdul Rauf, the imam behind the Islamic center project, has said that U.S. policies “were an accessory to the crime that happened.” How is that any different? By the way, the Saudi royal family embraces Wahhabism, an interpretation of Islam that cannot be said to value “tolerance and openness.” Among other things, in Saudi Arabia non-Muslim houses of worship are prohibited and “infidels” — people like you and me — may not set foot in the holy cities of Mecca and Medina upon pain of death. Newt Gingrich has called on Abdul Rauf to state clearly that he disagrees with such policies. Is that not a reasonable request? I have an additional suggestion: If this project — also called the “Cordoba Initiative”— is really to be a 13story home for “multi-faith collaboration,” should it not contain a synagogue and a church as well as a mosque? I would recommend putting each on a different floor. On the highest floor, let’s put the church since Christians founded this great nation of ours. One floor down, let’s put a synagogue, since Jews were among the earliest immigrants to find religious freedom in America. And one floor further down, we’d have the mosque, a place for a newer generation of immigrants to gather and worship freely. Here’s my guess: Abdul Rauf will find it blasphemous that you want this center to give equal status to Christianity and Judaism. And he will see putting a church and synagogue on higher floors as symbolizing more than equality. A little relevant history: Islam began, proudly, as a warriors’ religion. Beginning in the 7th century, Islamic armies burst out of Arabia and conquered much of the known world. Among their practices: to raze the houses of worship of those they defeated and build mosques upon the ruins. This was a way of sending a message. The al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem is built on the site where the First and Second Temples of the Jewish people once stood. When Muslim armies conquered the ancient Christian capital of Constantinople, later to be re-named Istanbul, they

Worked up over laziness orth Carolinians spend exactly as much time watching TV every day as they do working. We spend nearly three times as much of our day sleeping as making ourselves useful. We spend more than an hour a day socializing and contemplating in repose. All in all, we’re a lazy bunch. At least that’s the conclusion rendered in a recent Business Week ranking based on five years of data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics American Time Use Survey. They evaluated the amount of time people spent sleeping, watching television, relaxing, thinking, socializing, playing board games and surfing the Internet, compared to time spent working and exercising. North Carolina came in No. 4 on a The name list of the laziest of our EDC is states.

According the figures they used, North Carolina is the 10th fattest state in the union, tied with Michigan. Cheerwine-infused Krispy Kreme doughnuts not withstanding (What does Michigan have that can compete with that?) we’re not that bad. Some of us only eat fried chicken three times a week. We consider a salad on occasion. And we often go days without cornbread. The Business Week results could be skewed, however by geographic ignorance. A short online description accompanies each set of numbers and here’s how it starts for North Carolina: “Lifestyles and environments vary greatly across the state — from the Research Triangle to beaches of the outer banks — but overall, North Carolina is not particularly active place.” If the authors of the study think North Carolina starts in the Raleigh area and ends at the coast, that could explain a lot. They’re not even taking the hustling, bustling Piedmont into account. The health nuts in and around Asheville aren’t figuring in. It’s those slobs down east who are blowing the curve. OK, that’s a joke. Scientists at the Research Triangle Park — as at the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis — probably spend a lot more than 24 minutes a day “thinking.” But thinking is what they get paid for. So add that to their work time. And surely students at the state’s many fine colleges and universities can’t be penalized for not running a 5K as they study for exams. In any event, these results can’t include Rowan County. Magna Composites, an auto parts maker, announced in June it would add 183 jobs at its Rowan plant. Boral and Norandal are probably bringing about 50 more jobs, and Freightliner recently announced it was recalling 280 laid-off workers in Cleveland. Would companies entrust their production to us if we were a bunch of shiftless shirkers? And consider this: The name of our Economic Development Commission is “RowanWorks” and the slogan is “Ready for Work.” That’s “work” used twice, for crying out loud. No, all in all, we’re not that lazy. But it just seems like too much effort to argue.

Listen to Lyndon Johnson Century of oppression, hatred and injustice has left scars lenty of people messed up in the firing of Shirley Sherrod. She is, of course, the African-American political appointee who was forced to resign from the Agriculture Department after an edited videotape made it look as if she were anti-white. But while it’s completely justifiable to point COKIE AND fingers at the STEVE ROBERTS Obama administration, the NAACP, the mainstream media, the right-wing media and the blogger who started it all, it’s also important not to let the underlying assumption behind the charges against Shirley Sherrod stand. To equate black resentment against whites with white racism aimed at blacks dangerously ignores hundreds of years of American history. “In far too many ways, American Negroes have been another nation: deprived of freedom, crippled by hatred, the doors of opportunity closed to hope.” Lyndon Johnson spoke those words more than 100 years after the Emancipation Proclamation officially freed the slaves. The president was in the process of dismantling the Jim Crow laws and battling for the Voting Rights Act when he went to Howard University to make that speech, planting the seeds of affirmative action.


Johnson knew, “You do not take a person who, for years, has been hobbled by chains and liberate him, bring him up to the starting line of a race and then say, ‘you are free to compete with all the others,’ and still justly believe that you have been completely fair.” Fairness, he insisted, required an affirmative act, an invitation to push open the doors of opportunity. In the 45 years since that speech, the American workplace, especially the public sector, looks much more like the country, both in terms of race and sex. But now affirmative action is under attack, with the assumption that we are now all equal, that if anyone’s facing discrimination these days, it’s white people. That’s the attitude underlying the precipitous firing of Shirley Sherrod, who was accused of just such discrimination. In a screed against diversity programs published in the Wall Street Journal, Democratic Sen. Jim Webb cites the sorry history of both blacks and whites in the post-Civil War South — the lack of education, employment and health care for both races. His litany echoes Shirley Sherrod’s conclusion that the dif-

ferences in our society are less about black and white than about haves and have-nots. But we would be surprised if she agreed with Webb’s assertion that “Beyond our continuing obligation to assist those African-Americans still in need, government-directed diversity programs should end.” Get rid of those programs and apply nondiscrimination laws equally to blacks and whites and, says the senator, “Fairness will happen, and bitterness will fade away.” Come on. Has fairness to blacks in this country ever just happened? Didn’t it take a war? Didn’t the entire American experiment almost explode over race? Yes, whites in the South have suffered poverty, but as children they weren’t herded off to schools specifically designed to keep them from achieving a decent education; they weren’t excluded from swimming pools in public parks. As adults, they weren’t shunted into the filthy “colored” waiting rooms at train and bus stations, denied access to toilets and water fountains; they weren’t humiliated by little children moving the “white patrons only” sign on the streetcar to the row behind them, forcing elderly blacks to

stand. Poor white kids could kick African-Americans out of their seats just the same as rich white kids could. Ending that legal discrimination took a movement of courageous black people “acting with impressive restraint,” in the words of Lyndon Johnson, joined by right-thinking whites. It’s hardly surprising that some blacks are bitter. Not everyone has the capacity for forgiveness like Nelson Mandela, or Shirley Sherrod, who ended up saving the farm of the white man she had at first resented. Now, with an African-American in the White House, too many people seem to think that we have overcome our history. They equate racist sentiments in a demonstrably powerful political movement, the Tea Party, with those of a fringe group of thugs, the New Black Panthers. They think race is just another card to play in the game of left versus right. They’re wrong. We’ve come a long way in this country, but stirring up racial passions can only cause harm. Lyndon Johnson, a southern president who had seen the effects of “a century of oppression, hatred and injustice” knew that blacks faced a bias “whose dark intensity is matched by no other prejudice in our society.” America must not forget that. • • • Cokie and Steve Roberts write columns for Newspaper Enterprise Association.

Well-intentioned compact needs to fix dangerous flaw Winston-Salem Journal

ometimes, great ideas don’t work as well in the real world as they do on paper. That appears to be the case with a 24-state compact that provides license reciprocity for nurses. It’s a great idea but it has a serious flaw in its implementation. If the flaw can’t be fixed, then the idea may have to be dropped. The compact allows nurses licensed in any one of the 24 states, including North Carolina, to work in all 24. It’s a great idea because it allows areas with nursing shortages to fill them from a much larger potential employee pool. It also allows nurses more flexibility in where they live. Ask any employee whose job requires frequent transfer — having a nurse for a spouse makes moving a lot easier. But there is a downside in implementation. ProPublica, a nonprofit journalism organization, reported recently that nurses who have had their licenses revoked in one state have skipped to others and kept working. In the process, they endangered their patients, in some cases significantly. The report included four dozen cases


from just five of the states. North Carolina was one of the five. In one case, a nurse from Wisconsin was working in a North Carolina hospital after being charged with narcotics possession. He was fired by the hospital for refusing a drug test and banned from working in the state, but Wisconsin did not revoke his multistate license until the following year. A second case involved a nurse banned from working in North Carolina because of substance abuse who went to Texas and worked for two more years until he passed out during a surgery. The flaw in the system appears to be one of communication. When nurses lose their licenses in one of the compact states, the rest of the compact states are not receiving that critical information quickly enough. The nurses’ multistate licenses are not being promptly revoked. ProPublica reports that the delays can take months or more. ... Nursing regulators in North Carolina should study the report carefully. They need to examine current procedures to see if these cases exposed any obvious flaws that can be corrected.

LETTERS Balanced TV reporting hard to find at Fox News I am willing to fully acknowledge the writer’s information supplied in his editorial regarding Fox News (“Don’t blame Fox for Sherrod smear,” July 27). I used to notice this kind of thing because of the amount of time I spent watching Fox News for a conservative slant on the issues in order to know that I was being equally informed of all view points. When I grow weary of the left or right leaning tendencies of Fox and MSNBC, I switch to CNN for less biased reporting. Those three used to be the sum total of my television news information. As the years have progressed, though, I have seen a sway in the direction of misinformation and, yes, even lunacy from Fox News. It took a while for it to sink in to me that there was a growing tendency toward misinformation and ignoring of facts there. MSNBC is liberally biased, agreed, but there is a “geek-like” need to get at the actual facts. I never have caught MSNBC disseminating false impressions. They are even very apt to go after the left. Fox was the brainchild of a certain wealthy individual as a reaction against the supposed liberally biased media. I would think that by now they would be seeking a greater level of journalistic dignity than what I can see on the rare occasions I tune in to hear the conservative arguments. — Preston Sale Salisbury

Questions linger about Raleigh lobbying trip

‘Small town values’ often mislabeled ASHINGTON — We’ve heard much these past few years about “small town values,” most recently iterated and personified by Sarah Palin. When politicians speak of small town values, we know what they mean. Generally, they are invoking family, faith and flag — coincidentally the subtitle of Palin’s next book, “America By KATHLEEN Heart.” In the politician’s world, PARKER small towns are where “real Americans” live, as opposed to all those other people — the vast majority of Americans — who live in urban areas. As someone who grew up in a small town (and left as soon as possible) and who recently has chosen to live in a small town (though lately in absentia), I’ve given this a lot of thought. Despite all my implicit exposure to small town values, I never really understood what they were until I moved to Olive Street, a threeblock-long street in the nation’s capital. Lots of familiar people have lived on Olive Street. Mary Jo Kopechne lived across the street and down a few doors. Julia Child lived two blocks down. Olive Street made brief appear-


ances in the movies “Burn After Reading” and “Wedding Crashers.” One could say that my arrival here four years ago was providential. I was a day away from moving into an apartment in Dupont Circle when, passing through Georgetown, I decided to take one quick turn around the nearest block — just to see. And, voila. A small town house was for rent, and the people who were to become my neighbors and extended family were on the sidewalk. It was cocktail hour. Who could resist? Thus I came to be wedged between Jack and Craig on one side and Meaghan on the other. Jack and Craig have lived on Olive Street the longest — the span of their 25 years together in what can only be described as the most smalltown-values union I’ve ever witnessed. Meaghan, a widow, soon thereafter went to Guatemala to adopt Josephina, who, now bilingual and a determined tricyclist, has become the block’s child. Not long ago, Meaghan married Nigel, who added Reagan and Drew to our neighborhood brood.

There are other beloved neighbors — Molly, Susan, John. And then there are dogs Teddy and Maggie, Zoe the threelegged cat; Bella, the cat who single-handedly has managed to solve our back alley’s rat problem, and assorted others, including Ollie, the five-pound blind poodle I adopted a year ago. In our time together, we Olive Streeters have celebrated one wedding, two funerals (dogs Jake and Beezie), Jack and Craig’s 25th an niversary, a couple of blizzards, a Pulitzer Prize and now, my departure. I am leaving in a few days for a much bigger town — New York City — to begin a new adventure. Sorting through the clutter that gathers unbidden in the corners of one’s life got me thinking about the meaning of this little speck on Google’s Earth. I’ve left a lot of towns and cities here and there, but I’ve never felt as sad. The obvious reason is that I am leaving friends, but more than that, I leave behind a history of daily expressions of what it means to be human: The night a friend died and Jack and Craig took me in; the dozens of times I

Families come in many configurations. And small town values have nothing to do with small towns.

The Sides article (“Sides: Board should have backed Hall,” July 21) was almost-excellent reporting by the Salisbury Post. Important details were left out. (1) Did a sitting N.C. senator really call Commissioner Tina Hall a liar from the Senate floor? And, if so, what is his/her name and justification? (2) Why were Jim Sides and Hall in Raleigh together? (3) Is Rowan County paying for her trips? (4) Was Commissioner Hall in Raleigh representing Rowan or not? (5) Finally, the biggest question: According to Sides, two additional commissioners were aware and supported Hall in her attempt to lobby the Senate. In what county commission board meeting did the discussion take place about Hall lobbying the Senate? The fiasco in Raleigh was a pathetic display of incompetence and an embarrassment to Rowan County. Why did Sides feel the need to speak for Tina Hall? Why does the Salisbury Post feel that ex-Commissioner Sides’ opinions warrant front-page news? The article was clearly an attempt by Sides to shift blame for what happened in Raleigh from Commissioner Hall to Commissioners Jon Barber nd Raymond Coltrain. I suspect Sides was the “architect” of this attempt to slip one by Barber and Coltrain, and the wall came tumbling down. The article was a feeble attempt by Sides at damage control, using the Salisbury Post. — Ralph Deal

knocked on their door to say, “I’m hungry and out of food,” knowing they would say, “You’re in luck!” The daily conversations with Meaghan over our shared garden wall.

The sound of Craig dragging everyone’s garbage cans to the curb, until one day a careless motorist hit him crossing the street. The block has gone to pot since he’s been on crutches. So goes life in the city. But if those aren’t small town values, I don’t know what we’re talking about. All the inferences one has drawn from reading the foregoing are meant to be taken to heart. Families come in many configurations. And small town values have nothing to do with small towns. Josephina, having grown up on a street where she is universally beloved, where a gay couple is the most stabilizing presence in any of our lives, where wine and laughter and dogs and patience and kindness are her daily diet, is the luckiest child I know. And so am I for having lived here. Hasta luego, Olive Street. • • • Kathleen Parker writes for the Washington Post.

Good experience at SHS summer academic camp Recently I attended Salisbury High School’s Academic Camp with my client, Michael Ranson. (I work for Easter Seals UCP of North Carolina). It is a camp for students with high grades and interest in math and science. I want to say what a great learning experience it was, not only for Michael, but for myself also! It was a two-week program consisting of chemistry, biology, engineering and physics. The teachers, Mr. Chip Cook and Mr. Childers, were absolutely the best instructors anyone could ask for. Head of the program was Dr. Windsor Eagle, and let me tell you that he went out of his way to make sure we were able to participate in the program just like able-bodied children. Dr. Eagle and I spent time on the phone before camp started, and he was very curious about Michael’s needs and was willing to do whatever it took for Michael to participate. I was able to hold on to an elevator key for Michael to use whenever we needed to go down for lunch or up to the third floor for our next class. I want to say thank you to the staff at Salisbury High School, the academy teachers and Dr. Eagle for a wonderful educational experience! I hope you keep this program going for years to come. — Shasta Goodman Salisbury

Dilemma: Teaching vs. teachers unions year or two ago, I received this e-mail. The writer was upset with me for arguing that school principals should have the power to fire teachers who do not perform. As numerous educators have told me, union protections being what they are, dumping a teacher — even a bad one — is an almost impossible task. My corresponLEONARD dent, a teacher, PITTS took issue with my desire to see that changed, noting that without those protections, she’d be at the mercy of some boss who decided one day to fire her. In other words, she’d be just like the rest of us. The lady’s detachment from the reality most workers live with struck me as a telling clue as to why our education system frequently fails to educate. When you can’t get fired for doing bad work, what’s your impetus for doing good? Many of us seem to be wondering the same thing. Recently, for instance, Washington, D.C., schools chief Michelle Rhee, hired in 2007 to reform the system, fired 241


teachers, most of whom had performed poorly on a teacher evaluation system. And in a speech Thursday before the National Urban League, President Obama defended his Race to the Top education initiative, saying the goal isn’t simply to fire bad teachers, but to lower class sizes, reward excellence and demand accountability. Earlier this year, officials in Rhode Island fired the entire faculty of a poorly performing school. Finally, there’s 2002’s No Child Left Behind Act, which, while deeply flawed, at least represented an attempt to bring about critical change. Americans seem to be rallying around a demand for education reform. Apparently, we’ve had enough of students failing schools and schools failing students. We know our kids are capable of better — and that in a competitive, hyper-connected world where China is rising and India aspiring, not delivering better is no longer an option.

Unfortunately, whenever anyone seeks to require better, they seem to find themselves at odds with the last people you’d expect: teachers. Or, more accurately, teachers unions. No, I don’t hate teachers. I’ve been one myself. Moreover, I know that whatever I’ve achieved in life is due in large part to what I learned from Mr. Jacobs, Ms. Sobo, Mrs. Harrison, Sr. Tapanez and many others. No, I don’t hate unions. I support the right of workers to organize and bargain collectively if they choose. And no, I don’t think teachers bear sole responsibility for the failure of our kids to excel. You also have to blame those parents who are uninvolved or who live under the misapprehension that their little darlings can do no wrong, even when said darlings are swinging from the light fixtures in class or running an extortion ring behind the gym. All that said, it is troubling to see teachers unions reflexively reject anything that smacks of

accountability. Rhee offered a significant raise and big bonuses for effective teachers in exchange for weakening tenure protections. She had to fight the union. The White House put up $4 billion in grant money to spur innovation in schools. It had to fight the unions. Those Rhode Island officials fired (and later re-hired) faculty at a school where one child in two doesn’t graduate and only 7 percent of 11th graders are proficient in math. It had to fight the unions. Enough. It is time teachers embraced accountability. Time parents, students and government did, too. Because ultimately, what is at stake here is not grades, not jobs and not blame. No, this is an argument about the future — and whether this country will have one. The fact is, it cannot in a world where information is currency and American kids are broke. People like my correspondent need to understand: There is a groundswell building here.

SHERIFF FROM 1D steady stream of busts by the state and local police of stash houses where smugglers hide illegal immigrants. The state attorney general has taken a moneywiring company to civil court on allegations that smugglers used their service to move money to Mexico. And a county south of Phoenix has its sheriff’s deputies patrol dangerous smuggling corridors. The Arizona Legislature have enacted a series of tough-on-immigration measures in recent years that culminated with the law signed by Brewer in April, catapulting the Republican to the national political stage. But the king of local immigration enforcement is still Arpaio. Arpaio, a 78-year-old exfederal drug agent who fashions himself as a modernday John Wayne, launched his latest sweep Thursday afternoon, sending about 200 sheriff’s deputies and trained volunteers out across metro Phoenix to look for traffic violators who may be here illegally. Deputy Bob Dalton and volunteer Heath Kowacz spotted a driver with a cracked windshield in a poor Phoenix neighborhood near a busy freeway. Dalton triggered the red and blue police lights and pulled over 28-year-old Alfredo Salas, who was born in Mexico but has lived in Phoenix with a resident alien card since 1993. Dalton gave him a warning after Salas produced his license and registration and told him to get the wind-

S.C. TOWN FROM 1D migration ordinances across the country, too many to track, said Vivek Malhotra, the national advocacy and policy counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union. He said federal and state courts in four states have blocked housing and employment bans such as that in Fremont and the one proposed in Summerville. Immigration is a federal, not local, issue, said Rev. Harry Villacis, Hispanic outreach minister at Summerville’s Faith Assembly of God. He says concern about new immigration laws, both the local and state ones and the drumbeat of others around the country, has

As for the allusion to Cordoba: Proponents of this project say they mean to hearken back to a time when Muslims, Christians and Jews lived together in relative tranquility under the rule of a Muslim caliph. But others believe it is intended to refer to the mosque built atop the remains of a church in Cordoba after Soldiers of Allah conquered Spain. Prior to 9/11, most of us viewed the World Trade Center as simply an office building. But to the terrorists waging war against us, their supporters, enablers and apologists, the Twin Towers were a great Cathedral of Capitalism. That is what they believe they destroyed that day. To them, an Islamic center built on this site would commemorate their victory in what they regard as a historic battle. Mayor Bloomberg, you are the custodian of hallowed ground.

National Health Service a failure

Arizona’s case Between 40 percent and 50 percent of all immigrant arrests each year on the U.S.Mexico border are made in Arizona, according to the U.S. Border Patrol. And the annual costs? About $600 million for educating illegal immigrants at K-12 schools, more than $120 million for jailing illegal immigrants convicted of state crimes and as much as $50 million that hospitals have to eat for treating illegal bordercrossers, according to figures provided by Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne, Gov. Jan Brewer’s office and the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association.

Deputy Robert Dalton points to a cracked windshield as he holds the driver's license of a driver in phoenix on thursday, July 29, 2010 during the latest crime suppression sweep by sheriff Joe arpaio.

Sixty percent of the nearly 1,000 people arrested in the sweeps since early 2008 have been illegal immigrants. Thursday’s dragnet led to four arrests, but it wasn’t

clear if any of them were illegal immigrants. Critics say deputies racially profile Hispanics. Arpaio says deputies approach people only when they have probable cause. “Sheriff Joe Arpaio and some other folks there decided they can make a name for themselves in terms of the intensity of the efforts they’re using,” said Benjamin Johnson, executive director of the pro-immigrant American Immigration Council. “There’s no way to deny that. There are a lot of people getting caught up in these efforts.” The Justice Department

launched an investigation of his office nearly 17 months ago over allegations of discrimination and unconstitutional searches and seizures. Although the department has declined to detail its investigation, Arpaio believes it centers on his sweeps. Arpaio feels no reservations about continuing to push the sweeps, even after the federal government stripped his power to let 100 deputies make federal immigration arrests. Unable to make arrests under a federal statute, the sheriff instead relied on a nearly 5-year-old state law that prohibits immigrant smuggling. He has also raided 37 businesses in enforcing a state law that prohibits employers from knowingly hiring illegal immigrants. “I’m not going to brag,” Arpaio said. “Just look at the record. I’m doing what I feel is right for the people of Maricopa County.”

prompted many Hispanics to leave in recent months. Only 35 parishioners now attend the weekly Spanish services at the church, about half as many as in January, he said. “They are very afraid,” he added. VILLACIS “They are going to Texas or New Mexico or Washington state where they can receive a drivers license. At least they can have an ID where they can drive to work without any difficulty.” Poor and uneducated illegals “come for the American dream,” said Villacis, 48, who emigrated from Ecuador four years ago. “The other side is we

need to respect the law. My thought is they don’t really know what breaking the law means,” he added. Mabel Aguayo, 33, who operates a Mexican restaurant with her husband, said business is off 40 perAGUAYO cent in recent months. She said that a new ordinance will just make it harder for illegals who are victims of crime. “They may have people rob them but will stay quiet because they are afraid of reporting it to the police,” said Aguayo, who was born in the U.S. but grew up in Mexico. “The police are supposed

to protect you, not be against you looking for illegals.” Dennis Ashley, 65, a local architect, said immigration is important but there are more important things to be concerned about. “If I could get better gas mileage with my car and the Gulf would clean up, if we solve immigration issues, then maybe that should rise to the top,” he said. “My people came to this country illegally,” added Ashley who traces his ancestry to the pilgrims on the Mayflower. “This country always seems to need someone to pick on — the blacks, the homosexuals, the Mexicans or the Latin Americans,” he said. “Why don’t we look at our issues and look at our strengths?”

Arpaio, a 78-year-old ex-federal drug agent who fashions himself as a modern-day John Wayne, launched his latest sweep Thursday afternoon. ARPAIO shield fixed. Salas, a married father of two who installs granite, told the Associated Press that he was treated well but he wondered whether he was pulled over because his truck is a Ford Lobo. “It’s a Mexican truck so I don’t know if they saw that and said, ‘I wonder if he has papers or not,”’ Salas said. “If that’s the case, it kind of gets me upset.”

enate Majority Leader Harry Reid told a group of liberal activists meeting in Las Vegas they shouldn’t worry about not getting the singlepayer provision in the new health care law. “We’re going to have a public option,” Reid said. “It’s just a question of when.” Remember the objections conservaCAL tives and THOMAS many Republicans raised during the debate about government-run health care and the danger of eliminating private health insurance, despite its many flaws? Recall that Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) was frequently cited as an example of where the U.S. health system might be headed: coverage for all, but with lower quality, long waits for major surgery and denial of care when the government decides the procedure is not “cost effective.” Anyone who believes a U.S. health care system based on the NHS model can somehow fare better than Britain’s had better consider this recent headline and story from London’s Sunday Telegraph: “Axe Falls on NHS Services; Hip operations, cataract surgery and IVF rationed; Cancer care, maternity, pediatric services at risk.” Rationing? Oh yes, and it is something the unconfirmed, recess-appointed U.S. health care czar, Donald Berwick, strongly favors. British government leaders had promised to protect frontline services. The Obama administration made similar promises to win enough support from members of Congress. Here’s what America can look forward to if it follows the NHS model, according to the Sunday Telegraph: “Plans to cut hundreds of thousands of pounds from budgets for the terminally ill, with dying cancer patients to be told to manage their own symptoms if their condition worsens at evenings or weekends.” Never has “take two aspirin and call me in the morning” sounded more callous.

beds for the mentally ill reduced and general practitioners would be discouraged from sending patients to hospitals. Accident and emergency department services would also be cut. Thousands of jobs would be lost at NHS hospitals, reports the Telegraph, “including 500 staff to go at a trust where cancer patients recently suffered delays in diagnosis and treatment because of staff shortages.” Katherine Murphy of the Patients Association called the cuts “astonishingly brutal.” She expressed particular concern at attempts to ration (that word again) hip and knee operations. “These are not unusual procedures,” she said. “This is a really blatant attempt to save money by leaving people in pain.” What do politicians care about that? In Britain, as in America, top officials will always have access to the best care, even while they decide the rest of us cannot. This paragraph in the Telegraph story should send chills down the spine of Americans: “Doctors across the country have already been told that their patients can have the operations only if they are given ‘prior approval’ by the Primary Care Trust, with each authorization made on a ‘case by case’ basis.” When cost, rather than the value of life becomes supreme, rationing will inevitably lead to other costcutting policies. And yes, despite protestations from those who favored Obamacare that “death panels” would not be part of the equation, you can count on them. They will, of course, be called something else. We wouldn’t want to disturb any remaining moral sensibilities we might have. It has taken the NHS 62 years to get to this point. America’s journey should be a lot shorter given the declared goals of Harry Reid and Donald Berwick. It is more than ironic that this is taking place in the year when Britain is observing the centenary of the revered nurse Florence Nightingale. Given the prevailing attitude toward the value of human life and its care, her replacement might be the likes of Dr. Jack Kevorkian.

Anne Rice renounces Christianity NEW YORK (AP) — Anne Rice has had a religious conversion: She’s no longer a Christian. “In the name of Christ, I refuse to be anti-gay. I refuse to be anti-feminist. I refuse to be anti-artificial birth control,” the author wrote Wednesday on her Facebook page. “In the name of ... Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian. Amen.” Rice, 68, is best known for “Interview With a Vampire” and other gothic novels. Raised as a Catholic, she had rejected the church early in her life but renewed her faith in recent years and in 2008 released the memAssociAted Press Novelist Anne rice gave oir “Called Out of up vampires, and has Darkness: A Spirnow given up christiani- itual Confession.” In a telephone ty, too. interview Thursday, Rice said she had been having doubts for the past two to three years. She was troubled by the child abuse scandals in the church, and the church’s defensive reaction, and by the excommunication of Sister Margaret McBride, a nun and hospital administrator who had approved an abortion for a woman whose life was in danger. “I believed for a long time that the differences, the quarrels among Christians didn’t matter a lot for the individual, that you live your life and stay out of it. But then I began to realize that it wasn’t an easy thing to do,” said Rice, speaking from her home near Palm Springs, Calif. “I came to the conclusion that if I didn’t make this declaration, I was going to lose my mind.” Rice said she is a Democrat who supports the health care legislation signed into law by President Barack Obama and believes gay marriage inevitably will be permitted throughout the country. Although no longer part of any denomination, she remains a believer and continues to read theology and post Biblical passages on her Facebook page. She has no immediate plans to write about her leaving the church and will continue with her metaphysical fiction series, “Songs of the Seraphim.” Rice will not be taking up vampires again, but she said she is a big fan of the HBO series “True Blood,” enjoyed the first two “Twilight” movies (she has yet to read any of the Stephenie Meyer novels) and is interested in seeing her most famous character, the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, return to the screen. “We’re in talks about it,” she said. “But then we’ve always been in talks about it. Hope springs eternal in California.”

SUNDAY, AUGUST 1, 2010 • 5D


Philippa Gregory, author of “The Other Boleyn Girl,” continues her saga of the Wars of the Roses with a fictional biography of Margaret Beaufort, the grandmother of King Henry VIII. The wars between the Houses of York and Lancaster involved on-and-off fighting for about 30 years. They ended when Margaret’s son, Henry Tudor, killed Richard III in 1485 and married his niece, joining the two families. After a half-dozen novels focusing on the Tudor dynasty, Gregory stepped back into England’s medieval period last year with “The White Queen,” about Elizabeth Woodville, the matriarch of the House of York. “The Red Queen” is both a follow-up and companion to that novel, covering the same period from a different perspective. The novels share some of the same scenes, rendered different by the characters’ opposing views. “The Red Queen” starts when mad King Henry VI marries Margaret, his 12-yearold cousin, to his half brother, Edmund Tudor, who is twice her age. Their son, born while Margaret is still a child, comes just as the wars are starting. She vows he will become king and spends the next several decades plotting to return England to her family’s control.

Gregory’s Margaret is an egomaniac who believes herself chosen by God and aspires to be a holy warrior like Joan of Arc. Unloved by her mother and left vulnerable by her father’s suicide, she’s insecure and jealous. Elizabeth Woodville in “The White Queen” gives her little thought, but homely Margaret obsesses about the beautiful woman she believes has taken her rightful place as England’s queen. Edmund dies quickly, and Margaret’s mother marries her off in short order to another English lord. When he, too, is killed in the wars, she marries treacherous Thomas Stanley, who will turn the tide of battle in her son’s favor. There are moments when Margaret could be a sympathetic character: Married at 12, she’s raped repeatedly by a husband intent on producing a potential heir to the throne. Having endured an agonizing birth at the hands of inept midwives, she can’t conceive again. But instead, Gregory chooses — much as she did with Woodville’s power-hungry queen in “The White Queen” — to go against the grain. Her Margaret is self-absorbed, cold-hearted and grandiose in her ambitions. She sacrifices her relationship with the one person she might love, her brother-in-law Jasper Tudor, to marry and plot with Stanley. Near the end of the novel, Margaret reflects that she wouldn’t have much use for her son if he weren’t the focus of her plan to

gain power. Although Margaret is a sour pill, Gregory’s novel is not. She again brings insight to English history, recreating the power

struggle between two of the nation’s most notable women in a tale fresh for modern readers. There’s no question that she is the best at what she does.

Climatologist sees disastrous weather in future “The Weather of the Future: Heat Waves, Extreme Storms, and Other Scenes From a Climate-Changed Planet,” by Heidi Cullen. Harper, $25.99. BY CARL HARTMAN For The Associated Press

Climatologist Heidi Cullen was taken aback at her lecture on the prospects for global warming when a member of the audience came up with a practical question: “Do you think I should sell my beach house?” On reflection, the question seemed less surprising. She foresees a rise in the sea level that would drop the price of beachfront property — besides threatening climate disasters. To limit the rise, she wants governments to make people reduce, over the first half of the 21st century, the millions of tons of carbon that she says have been spewing out as carbon dioxide from their cars, trains, stoves and factories. She accepts weather as a local matter, just as Tip O’Neill, longtime speaker of the House of Representatives, proclaimed all politics to be local. “Most Americans believe that we will not take steps to

fix climate change until after it has begun to harm us personally,” she writes. “Unfortunately, by that point it will be too late. The climate system has time lags. ... So, by the time you see it in the weather on a daily ba-

sis, it’s too late to fix ...” Her book, “The Weather of the Future,” uses a broad itinerary to illustrate the threats she perceives. It predicts more frequent and more violent storms, more hot spells, cold spells, droughts, famines and huge waves of desperate refugees. She also notes threats that range from the possible extinction of the Bengal tiger because of increased flooding on islands off the coast of Bangladesh, and increased danger to dog sleds from melting sea ice in Canada, east of Hudson Bay. She sees lucrative tourism reduced by warming of south Pacific waters — a warmth that blanches the colorful corals of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef — and by the possibility that a hurricane will heavily damage

New York’s transit system by hitting the third rail at the Christopher Street subway stop. That station in Greenwich Village is already 14.6 feet below the level of the Atlantic Ocean, according to her figures. Despite more than ample graphs and statistics, Cullen is likely to attract readers with an insistent style and quotes from people who claim to have been already damaged by global warming. That goes especially for those who remember something of what they learned in Chemistry or Physics 101 classes. The itinerary includes imaginary “weather reports” for a series of future years. The one for New York dated “August 2050” is the most optimistic, though it envisions the Atlantic as warming to “bathtub” temperature. It concludes: “In 2050, when Hurricane Xavier — a category 4 monster, which sprang up from the bathtub that the Atlantic had become finally arrived — people sat back and watched it like the World Series. We knew we had a home team advantage, just like the Yankees.”

Picture books are full of things to spark imagination BY SARA GRAJEK Rowan Public Library

Some of the best books are those that leave you with a sense of wonder and pique your imagination. These are not books that contain stories about everyday life, but rather ones in which dinosaurs roam the streets, monsters are just looking for a sandwich, and where you can’t quite tell where one picture ends and another begins. Here are a few from the picture book collection at Rowan Public Library that are sure to amuse and spark the imagination of readers of all ages. “When Dinosaurs Came with Everything,” by Elise Broach and illustrated by Caldecott Awardwinning artist David Small, imagines a time when children received a dinosaur as a treat. No balloons, stickers or buy-one-getone free coupons for the residents of this town. Instead, you got a full-sized, living, breathing, dinosaur who would faithfully follow you home. Why, they even helped with the chores! Who wouldn’t want a triceratops to help with the laundry? Even mom gets on board when she discovers this. Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld’s cleverly drawn book of optical illusions in “Duck! Rabbit!” is sure to make you question what you are seeing. Is it a duck? Is it a rabbit?

Who can tell for sure? Either way, this book will create a lot of talk at storytime as you and your child try to decide what is on the page. “Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich and Other Stories You’re Sure to Like Because They’re All About Monsters, and Some of Them are Also About Food,” by Adam Rex is a funny book of poems that includes many of the classic monsters. In one poem, Frankenstein just wants to borrow some cheese from his neighbors, but he ends up scaring them and the whole town starts throwing food as a means to chase him off. He is sad at first, but quickly discovers he has the makings for a feast! “The Creature from the Black Lagoon” makes an appearance, along with a mummy, a zombie and Dracula. For not so scary monsters, try this book and its sequel, “Frankenstein Takes the Cake.” Sarah Thompson and Rob Gonsalvas are the creative team behind “Imagine a Day,” “Imagine a Night” and “Imagine a Place.” This trio of books and their, at times, Escher-like illustrations transport readers to a place where a house floats away on the water, but with a closer look, you realize the house on land is actually a boat. You’ll find dancers twirling across a dance floor in delicate dresses. But where do the dancers end, and the curtains start?

Each picture will make you pause for a second, third and maybe fourth look as you examine the details of each illustration. The beauty of books is that they are a free trip anywhere you want to go, whether a real destination or not. So stop by Rowan Public Library soon for a stack of books and turn your imagination loose.

‘RestRepo’ Award-winning documentary gives a soldier’s eye view of the war in Afghanistan BY KATIE SCARVEY

magine being a journalist embedded with American troops in one of the most dangerous places in the world, a place where multiple firefights are a daily occurrence, where part of the routine is burning human feces. Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington put themselves in such a situation in Afghanistan in order to explore a difficult conflict from the perspective of American soldiers. The result is a powerful documentary film: “Restrepo: One Platoon, One Year, One Valley” (National Geographic Entertainment), which chronicles the oneyear deployment of Battle Company, 173rd Airborne Brigade, at one of the


most dangerous places in Afghanistan, the Korengal Valley. With public debate about the war in Afghanistan taking on increasing urgency in recent months, “Restrepo” comes at an important time. The film won the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Film festival and will be coming to Charlotte Friday, August 6, at the Regal Park Terrace Stadium 6. It will air on the National Geographic channel in November. Starting in June of 2007, filmmakers Hetherington and Junger made a total of 10 trips to document military life at “Outpost Restrepo,” in the middle of a Taliban-controlled valley close to the Pakistan border. Junger is perhaps best known for his book “The Perfect Storm.” Hetherington

is a British photojournalist who has covered conflict for more than 10 years, including living behind rebel lines during the recent Liberian civil war. The isolated Korengal Valley outpost was named to honor the memory of private Juan “Doc” Restrepo, the beloved 20-year-old medic who died in a firefight in July of 2007. The filmmakers were given no limits on access, with the understanding that they would not shoot footage of wounded American soldiers — or would clear the footage if they did. Conditions proved to be challenging: no running water, no phone communication, at times no electricity or heat. The filmmakers did everything the soldiers did, except pull guard duty and shoot back during firefights. It was a grueling

assignment. Both filmmakers were wounded during their time there — Hetherington sustained a broken leg and Junger a torn achilles tendon. They came back with about 150 hours of footage, which was ultimately pared down to about 90 minutes. “Restrepo” is a soldier’s eye view of the war. It’s experiential; it’s visceral. By design, it offers no commentary, and although there is some music at the beginning and end, the film is mostly unscored. If we are nudged toward an emotional reaction, it is by the raw footage itself. The filmmakers decided that in order for us to truly understand what it was like to be a soldier in the hellish Koren-


‘Let’s not distort the realities out there’ A conversation about the war with photojournalist Tim Hetherington fter watching “Restrepo,” I talked to filmmaker Tim Hetherington by phone. Although he’s often in far-flung parts of the world covering conflict, he was at home in New York, where he has lived since 2009. Hetherington got into photography relatively late, he says, when he was 26 or 27. “I didn’t know I would cover wars, and I never really sought it out,” he says. “It just kind of happened organically.” He met Sebastian Junger, through working for Vanity Fair magazine. Junger had an idea to write a book and do a series of articles, and perhaps a film, about the American soldier, post 9/11. He pitched the idea to Vanity Fair. They liked it, and then Hetherington got involved, without knowing Junger. The two actually met at the airport for the very first time before flying to Afghanistan, Hetherington said. Fortunately, they hit it off and became good friends. “We’ve done this whole crazy journey as a team,” Hetherington said. “We’ve filmed together, we produced it together, sank our own savings into the film. It’s been an amazing process.” Initially, the soldiers were “very guarded,” Hetherington said. “The press and the military have a prickly relationship. Soldiers are suspicious.” Eventually, though, he and Junger felt welcomed into what he described as a family. Hetherington realizes that most journalists aren’t able to im-

Brotherhood, Hetherington says, is central to war. merse themselves in a subject the way he was able to in Afghanistan. There isn’t as much financial backing for serious journalism today, he said, and with a dearth of serious reporting, “the gap is filled by opinion,” he said. But he didn’t want ‘Restrepo ‘ to be a political statement. “I didn’t want my opinions to get in the way of your experience with the story,” he said. The film attempts to bring Afghanistan to the viewer in an

unfiltered, visceral way. It’s a “90-minute immersion into what it’s like out there from a soldier’s perspective,” he said. Hetherington is particularly drawn to the idea of brothers in arms, which he sees as a universal experience and still very much a male preoccupation. “One of the things to a civilian audience that we did reveal in the film is that ... brotherhood is really central to war,” he said. That seems like an obvious thing, he says, but when people

think of images from the war, they typically think of Apache helicopters, missiles. The real machinery of war, however, is a much more subtle thing. “The heart of the war machine is to take a group of young men, who train together and bond together ...” Put in certain kinds of situations, he says, these men “will kill and be killed for each other.” Men in the platoon who hate each other would, nonetheless, die for

each other, he says. Youth is a big part of the equation. “If you think about the soldiers, the average age is 18-24. The worst thing that can happen is that somebody close to you is killed out there, and it’s your responsibility. And so you have the responsibility to pull your weight ... not to get anybody killed. That’s a very secure place to be in the group dynamic. “When I was 18 I was pretty confused about the world. Your role isn’t really fleshed out. And so it’s no wonder these guys come back and say, ‘I wish I was back out there.’ “What they’re missing (when they come home) is significance and meaning in the life that they have out there. Both filmmakers came away with a deep admiration for the men who were their subjects. “This country asks a lot of those young men,” Hetherington said. “If we are going to send young men out there, we need to equip them properly and train them properly. “The press is an important part of that discussion.” Hetherington says that it’s imperative that we welcome soldiers back into society, that we “make sure they’re OK.” Because the United States no longer has a draft army, he feels the general population is less engaged, less connected than they might otherwise be. “ Soldiers are in some way like

Graham - Pless

OCRACOKE ISLAND — Stephanie Laine Graham of Salisbury and John Aaron Pless of Lexington were united in marriage Saturday, July 31, 2010, on the grounds of the Wahab House on Silver Lake. The Rev. Craig Sigmon officiated the 5:30 p.m. ceremony, which was followed by a reception. The bride was escorted by her father, David Graham, and attended by Sara Frick of Salisbury as matron of honor. Her bridesmaids included sister of the groom Sarah Askwith of Wilmington, Kari Ledbetter of Rockwell, Mary Craig Misenheimer of San Francisco, Calif., and Jolene Wawrzyniak of Charlotte. The Rev. John E. Pless stood as his son’s best man. Serving as groomsmen were brother-in-law of the groom Nate Askwith of Wilmington, Kevin Austin and Brad Durham of Rockwell and brother of the bride Adam Graham of Charlotte.

FROM 1E the soul of America,” he says. “They are being fought over by different sides of the spectrum. They’re symbols. “They represent patriotism, but they can also represent something darker.” Hetherington offers the disturbing images from Abu Ghraib as an example. Soldiers are often not represented as three-dimensional people, with successes and failures, he says. He hopes that “Restrepo” will inspire “good, healthy conversation.” “Questions need to be asked about what we’re doing there, to make sure we’re doing it for the right reasons.” People too often make the mistake of resorting to shouting and emotion, he says, when discussing the war. He doesn’t see heated rhetoric helps either side. It’s not that Hetherington doesn’t have opinions or feelings surrounding the war in Afghanistan. “The outrage, as it were — that we don’t relate to soldiers, that we’re not thinking about civilian costs of the war — outrage is what motivates me; it’s not what I ram down people’s throats.” He says he can’t predict what will happen in the war. “The war is unfolding to me too,” he says. “We are facing some really important questions,” he says. He doesn’t see the ouster of Gen. Stanley McChrystal as a calamity. Gen. David Pe-

traeus, he offers, is “probably one of the most politically astute commanders we have. I don’t see how that’s going to be a hindrance. “Regardless of what we’re doing in Afghanistan — if we’re in it because we want to win a counter-insurgency war, or for security, to effect a selective kind of targeting of insurgents — then we need the cooperation of the government of Afghanistan. “It’s obvious that the current administration of Afghanistan is ineffectual and corrupt.” Hetherington believes Al Qaeda is still a threat, even if there are fewer original members. He points out that some feel we should get out of Afghanistan entirely, citing that 16,000 civilians have died as a result of the conflict, both by the Taliban and NATO forces. Still, he says, “it’s nothing compared to 400,000 dead in the decades previous when the Taliban and warlords fought it out.” “If we want to leave, fine, but let’s not kid ourselves that we’re saving civilian lives.” “Let’s have a conversation. Let’s not distort the realities out there.” Veterans have been appreciative of the film, he says. After one screening, Hetherington says a Vietnam vet gave him his service medal, saying, ‘I want to thank you for telling my story.’ ”

form of a clogged artery, but we’ll work on that later. First, a disclaimer. I’m rating major franchises only. I have no connection with the fast food industry, and no predjudicial leanings toward any one franchise, so there will be no favoritism. I both love and hate you all. I also do not pretend to be a qualified judge of anyone's culinary skills, so my opinion technically means nothing. It’s like a wedding vow to Larry King. It means nothing. Now, the awards: Best Burger: Cookout. When you can take a simple piece of cow and make it taste like it came off your grill two minutes ago, you win the Foodie. Best Fries: McDonald’s. The Golden Arches have long ruled this area. Nice potato flavor, good texture. Bear in mind though, the

shelf life of any fry is about 20 minutes. If you don't eat it before then, throw it away. Honorable mention goes to Wendys. Best Chicken Sandwich: Zaxbys. It must be in the marinade, but they give you grilled chicken that simply tastes better than most of the offerings you'll find at other fast food staples. Best Dollar Menu Item: Burger King for their Junior Whopper. A nice sized, great tasting burger for a buck. It comes complete with lettuce, tomato, mayo, onions and ketchup, and you won't need more than one. Now if they can just lose that creepy mascot. Best Breakfast Biscuit: Biscuitville. The name says it all. It’s what they do. It’s all they do. And they do it well. Best Side Item: A toss up between KFC’s slaw and the

Cajun Pintos at Bojangles. As Andy Griffith used to say: “Goooood eatin’!” Best Service: Chick-fil-A. They just seem nicer and more professional there. Maybe it’s because they get Sundays off. Best Overall Value: Taco Bell. No matter what you order, you get a generous amount of food for just a few bucks. Their competitors need to take notice. Some of you are getting a bit pricey for what you offer. So there you have it, the first annual Foodies. For those of you who failed to place in this year's competition, there's always next year. Keep refining those old menu items and introducing new ones, and remember this important advice: I can be bought. Kent Bernhardt lives in Salisbury.
