Arts could get $25,000 boost with restructuring Proposal frees up withheld allocation BY EMILY FORD email@example.com
SALISBURY — In today’s economy, most arts groups are making do with less. But a proposed reorganization of the Rowan Arts Council could mean up to $25,000 more each year for the local arts community. The suggested model would do away with the Rowan Arts Council’s executive director position, which has been vacant since February. Instead, the Rowan County Convention and Visitors Bureau would handle marketing, bookkeeping and other administrative tasks, saving up to $25,000 in overhead that would

Cleveland’s finances emerge as top local election issue BY SARAH CAMPBELL email@example.com
CLEVELAND — Mayor John Steele is running unopposed for reelection, but two of his fellow Board of Commissioners members have some competition. Newcomers Richard Taylor and Leonard West will take on incumbents John Bradford and Mary Frank Fleming-Adkins for two seats on the board. Several of the candidates said the town’s finances are a top priority. Cleveland has maintained a fund

But a tall tower does not belong on his land, she said. After waiting two days, 10 members of the public testified Monday night on both sides — four supporting the permit and six opposing — in addition to the called witnesses. For a conditional-use permit to be approved in Rowan County, the proposed use must not create significant visual impacts for adjoining properties or passersby, detract significantly from the character of the area or result in hazardous safety conditions. In 2005, after 14 hours of testimony over two days, county commissioners decided a 1,350-foot tower on the Parkers’ property would present a safety hazard to a nearby private airstrip, Miller Airpark. Hilton appealed the county’s decision, but a three-judge panel of the N.C. Court of Appeals upheld the denial in September 2007, and so did the N.C. Supreme Court. Several aviation experts — pilots, instructors and specialists — testified during both days of the hearing. Some said the tower would not be a significant safety hazard to Miller Airpark if pilots knew where it was and followed well-known procedures. Others said it would be too tall and too close to the airport. Jack Edwards, a pilot and resident of Miller Airpark in Mount Ulla, said the tower would be difficult to see in certain weather conditions, which is a concern especially for lost or disoriented pilots. Parker said he likes the airport and understands the pilots’ concerns. “If I was a pilot, I wouldn’t want a tower there either,” Parker said. “But I know you guys are proficient enough to fly in and out even if the tower’s there.” Ken Patterson, former obstruction evaluation special-
ist with the FAA and aviation consulting with Airspace Consulting Inc. in Brooks, Ga., said Monday he performs the same safety analysis as the FAA does but for private airports. The FAA has issued a determination of no hazard for the tower. From his own study of the proposed tower, Patterson reached the opinion that the determination would have been issued even if Miller Airpark was a public airport. He said he confirmed his conclusion with a current FAA specialist over the phone. Bruce Joseph, a pilot and flight instructor, said Tuesday the FAA cannot consider private airports in its determination. He said testimony about a phone call doesn’t prove that it considered Miller Airpark. “Mr. Parker has a financial interest in putting the tower on his property, and I respect that,” Joseph said. “My question to Mr. Parker is when an errant pilot hits that tower, do you want that blood on your hands for putting up a tower for your own financial gain?” Commissioner Carl Ford took issue with that question, saying commissioners hear it when they have traffic safety concerns about a permit. “That really offends me; that burns me up,” Ford said. “We’re all going to die sometime. Hopefully, prayerfully, nobody will hit the tower if it’s approved. ... Anytime anybody loses a life, it bothers me.” Joseph replied that he
chose his words “for impact” and didn’t mean to offend anyone. The county requires that a new broadcast tower should limit visual impacts to historical properties and the North Carolina Scenic Byway, which is located near the Parkers’ property. The North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office has determined that the tower would not adversely affect historic properties in the area. But David Foard Hood, a former employee of the State Historic Preservation Office, said it only took into account the architectural significance of most of the properties, not the agricultural significance for which some of them also qualify. Rose LaCasse, a Mount Ulla resident, said she catalogued information about historic properties in the community and submitted it in 2004 to the State Historic Preservation Office for consideration for the national historic register. She said the proposed tower will be very visible from those properties, not only because of its height but because FAA regulations require that it must be painted red and white and be properly lit. LaCasse also said terrain maps show the tower will be clearly visible from all of the scenic byway in Rowan County, which often overlooks open, rolling farmland.

90 DAYS UP TO 12 MONTHS
FROM 1a matter. It will be the third day of proceedings after 16 hours of testimony on Monday and Tuesday. Greely “Gig” Hilton, president of Davidson County Broadcasting, has applied for a conditional-use permit to build a 1,200-foot broadcast tower on property owned by Richard L. Parker and his wife, Dorcas. Parker, who owns about 159 acres of property on Parker Loop Road off N.C. 801, testified that he wants to lease the land to Davidson County Broadcasting to his fourthkeep generation farm going. Parker’s daughter, Brittany Chester, said during the public testimony part of the hearing that the tower actually would help preserve Rowan County farmland. “If we don’t get this financial aid, then we lose the farm,” Chester said. “He’s not going to be able to sell it as farmland and will have to sell it as residential land.” Opposing the request is a citizens’ group made up of the Miller Airpark Association, the Mount Ulla Historic Preservation Society and James Rollans and his wife, Marian Parker Rollans. “I live across from the Parkers; these folks are my kinfolks,” Marian Rollans said. “I would do nothing to hurt them. I don’t want them to hurt themselves by allowing the tower to be put on their farm. ... It will affect his children from now on.” She said if everyone there had pooled their funds 10 years ago, they could have given enough money to “Ricky Parker” for him to start over again, and she would have been willing to do that.

ROCKWELL’S CAKE BOSS Ann Miller enters international competition Emily Ford/SALISBURY POST
B Y J OANIE M ORRIS
Mayor Susan Kluttz and Doug Paris sign papers Tuesday after he was sworn in as interim city manager. Councilman William ‘Pete’ Kennedy observes.
For the Salisbury Post
ROCKWELL — Ann Miller was a single mother in California in 1965 when she first discovered a love for cake decorating. She’s always loved baking, and while working as a cashier in a grocery store, she saw some ladies buying a bunch of sugar. “I said, ‘What are you going to do with all that sugar?’ ” Ann recalled. They then told her about a cake decorating class they were attending. Ann decided to attend, too, and after the 10-class course, she was hooked. “The more I learned, the more I wanted to learn,” Ann said. Part of the class was “learning by doing,” which meant that Miller baked and decorated nine cakes for the course. She didn’t mind though, since baking was her passion. “After I finished,” she said, “I realized I had just barely touched the subject of cake decorating.” Eleven years, a move back to North Carolina and a wedding later, Ann heard about the International Cake Exploration Societe’ — a nonprofit organization founded in 1976 by Betty Jo Steinman in Monroe, Mich. The organization is dedicated to the promotion of cake decorating and sugar arts. “Betty Jo Steinman said, ‘You know what? Cake decorating is an art,’ ” Ann said at her home in Rockwell as she worked on designs this week. Now, Ann finds herself one of only a handful of charter members of the group left — a mother of three and grandmother of six, with three great-grandchildren and counting. “They’re getting old, like me,” she jokes. After 36 years, the International Cake Exploration Societe’ is hosting its first North Carolina-based convention

Man charged with trafficking after police find 35 pounds of marijuana SALISBURY — Authorities charged a Salisbury man with drug trafficking after catching him with 35 pounds of marijuana, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office reported Tuesday. James Alexander Brown, 60, of 315 Ashbrook Road, was in the county jail under a $250,000 secured bond Tuesday evening. Detectives from the Rowan and Davie County sheriff’s departments and Mocksville Police Department had set up surveillance at Brown’s residence after getting a tip that he was about to receive a large shipment of marijuana. Investigators found Brown with the drugs after his vehicle was stopped on Statesville Boulevard near Jake AlexanBROWN der Boulevard, the Rowan Sheriff’s Office said. During a search of Brown’s apartment, authorities found another half pound of marijuana and a small amount of cocaine. Brown has been charged with felony possession of marijuana with intent to sell, deliver or manufacture, felony maintaining a dwelling to keep, store and sell a controlled substance and felony trafficking in marijuana.
Jon Barber DWI case continued, wine larceny hearing Aug. 11 B Y S HAVONNE P OTTS firstname.lastname@example.org
SALISBURY — County Commissioner Jon Barber was granted a continuance Tuesday in his driving while impaired case. Barber’s attorney, David Bingham of Salisbury, requested the case be continued but didn’t give any explanation while in court. Barber was charged in May BARBER with driving while impaired, driving left of center and failing to maintain lane control after he wrecked his vehicle. Since Barber refused a breath test at the scene, his driver’s license was automatically revoked for 30 days.
In June, Barber’s case was continued because he was in rehab. He has since been released from the inpatient rehabilitation program. This is his second driving while impaired charge. In 2008, Barber pleaded guilty to driving while impaired. Barber admitted in May to a problem with alcohol after he resigned from his teaching job amid allegations he was drunk in a classroom full of students. Barber is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 11 on charges of misdemeanor larceny stemming from allegations that he stole a bottle of wine from a store in April. A phone call to David Bingham was not immediately returned. His office indicated Bingham does not comment on pending cases.
SALISBURY — Doug Paris took his seat for the first time Tuesday alongside City Council as the interim city manager. Mayor Susan Kluttz administered the oath of office to Paris, 27. Wife Melissa Paris held the Watch the video Bible, and mother “DOUG PARIS Zina Risley, stepSWEARING IN” father John Risley Go to www.salisburypost.com and grandmother Carolin Paris attended the meeting. Paris takes the reins of city government after the retirement of his mentor, David Treme, who served as city manager for more than 25 years. Treme retired Monday. The city’s search firm, Springstead and Associates, will host a public meeting at 5 p.m. Aug. 10 in City Hall to gather opinions about what people want to see in the next city manager. Mayor Susan Kluttz said City Council members will attend the meeting to listen but will not participate. Contact reporter Emily Ford at 704-797-4264.
In other action In other business at Tuesday’s meeting: • Salisbury-Rowan Utilities will quit adding fluoride to the water supply for about three months while determining if the system needs to be repaired, director Jim Behmer said. The utility will drain the fluoride tanks to complete a “thorough assessment” of the feed system, he said. Behmer said he would come back to the Council with a repair proposal. Because toothpaste and mouthwash have fluoride, the temporary suspension will not cause any problems, Behmer said. • City planner Lynn Raker updated City Council on the $290,000 state grant that will pay for streetscape improvements in the 300 block of North Lee Street, including sidewalks, trees and lights. The city won the grant because the project will improve safety and economic development in the area, Raker said. “It’s a windfall,” Mayor Pro Tem Maggie Blackwell said. • Council recognized the participants in the Summer Youth Employment Program: Koneisha Jones, Kayla Ferguson, Jazmine Campbell, Joseph Wiggins and D-Shawn Jordan. Coordinators Michelle Balknight and Anna Bumgarner said supervisors had high praise for the students. The Woodson Foundation provided $2,500 to make up for cuts to the Community Development Block Grant. “I hope someday after your education you will come back and consider a job with the city,” Kluttz said. • Appointed 14 members to the West End Neighborhood Transformation Plan Steering Committee. • Council awarded a $196,500 contract to Carolina Industrial Equipment for the purchase of a Johnston model VT-650 Street Sweeper. • Council awarded a $91,705 contract to James River Equipment for the purchase of a John Deere 410J Backhoe Loader. • The city and N.C.

Landis board hears presentation on block grants BY SHAVONNE POTTS email@example.com
LANDIS — The town board received a brief presentation Monday from Shelley Williamson, a planner with Centralina Council of Governments, regarding state Community Development Block Grants. Williamson told the board about eligibility requirements. Funds are available to local municipal or county governments for projects to enhance the vitality of communities. The grants primarily serve people of low-and moderateincomes. Grants can be used to correct environmental problems with water/sewer systems.

WE BUY GOLD, SILVER, DIAMONDS & COINS An eerie look into what was once known as the “Wettest and Wickedest” city in the State
Greene County deputy killed in accident
this week. Cake makers and decorators from all over the world have converged on Charlotte to attend demonstrations and classes. The convention is open to members starting Thursday and to the public Saturday and Sunday. Ann will enter two cakes and a panoramic egg in the International Sugar Art Collection Cake Gallery, which is open the public Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The cost is $10 per person, and a portion of the entry fee will go to charity. Ann said the convention is being held in partnership with ICES members from South Carolina to make sure that it will meet everyone’s expectations. And even though she’s in her 80s, Betty Jo Steinman, who lives in Tennessee now, still attends conventions when she’s feeling able. Ann figures Betty Jo is like her. “I love doing this,” she said, gesturing to her dining room table covered with decorating supplies. “I’ll do this until the day I die.” The two cakes Ann is taking — one square to be decorated with dogwoods and cardinal birds and one circular with a gum-paste-andfondant tea cup on top — won’t be judged. It’s all about sharing your talent and technique and learning from each other, Ann said. Her panoramic egg is made with 5 pounds of sugar and stands just under a foot tall on a base that looks like it’s made from a coffee filter. The inside is scooped out and decorations — all edible — are positioned for a cute Easter view inside. “It’s just sugar and water,” Ann said, tapping on the outside shell of an egg she’s had sitting on a shelf in her dining room for almost 30 years. Ann makes the eggs in an egg-shaped form, a half at a time. She packs the sugar into the mold, then adds water one teaspoon at a time until it gets to the right consistency. “It feels like damp sand,” she said. After that, she works it with her hands to make sure it’s all the way packed in to avoid air pockets or voids in the sugar mixture. “It’s like building a sand castle.” After the sugar dries — which for large eggs takes up to three days — it’s hard as a rock. She takes the sugar egg out of the form and carefully scoops out the center to ensure the egg doesn’t fall apart. “It’s simple to do,” Ann said. She’s confident anyone could learn the technique easily. After the inside is scooped out and both sides

cause the last several she had gone to, “I noticed there was not anything pertaining to Easter.” These large eggs take up to a week to complete, but despite the time spent waiting for sugar to dry, and the intricate decorating that goes into each one, Ann isn’t stressed. “It’s relaxing,” she said. “I can stay up late at night and just do it.” She credits ICES with her continued flair for decorating. Every time she goes, she learns new things. She even paid $200 for a class once. “I just want people to know ICES is there,” she says. “Anybody can join. That’s what it’s all about.

Decorations for inside the egg are generally made with royal icing of her own recipe. “When I took classes from one of the ladies in California, I laid out a piece of wax paper over the pattern,” explained Ann, talking about the little squirrels, ducks, rabbits, trees and flowers she makes for the eggs. Now, she hardly uses a pattern. Her hand knows the shapes. Each decoration gets painted with a cake coloring with water added to thin it out. Once completed, she “glues” the two halves of the egg together with royal icing and decorates around the seam with icing and decorative, edible flowers. Each egg is unique, and a work of art. “These are my fun things to do,” she said. She decided to start taking panoramic eggs to the conventions be-
SNOW HILL (AP) — Authorities say a Greene County sheriff’s deputy has been killed in a traffic accident, barely two months after he took the job. The state Highway Patrol says 21-year-old Deputy David Jennings Dawson III was killed Monday night on N.C. 903 about three miles south of Snow Hill. The patrol said Dawson was responding to a call to assist another deputy when he lost control of his cruiser, which veered off the road and struck a tree. Officials in Greene County say Dawson had been with the sheriff’s office since June after graduating from basic law enforcement training at Lenoir Community College last spring. In July 2010, Greene County deputy Jon-Michael Willis was shot to death in the line of duty.

Enjoying a vacation in the ‘other’ Cleveland hen most people think of Cleveland around here, they think of Cleveland, NC. Few would ever think about Cleveland, Ohio. Those that do think of the city up north would usually have no interest in going there. Here is why you might want to go to Cleveland, Ohio. Last year for the first time, my summer vacation was spent in north central Ohio. The Ohio Erie Canal was the perfect DAVID place to abFREEZE sorb some history and ride long distances on a bike, two of my favorite things. But the big drawing card was that my favorite team, the New York Yankees, was on the way to Cleveland to play a four game series. That whole trip was a huge success. Just last week, I did a shorter version of the same trip and had another great time. Here are a few details. Most of my wives and girlfriends have accused me of being a tough person to vacation with. It has been said that I try to do too much. They want to relax and lie around. I research the area, find what there is to do, and try to experience most of it. This year, the Yanks were playing a three game series with the Indians and both teams were leading their divisions. July 4-6, and all the games were at night. That means a fourday trip, one of those to drive home, and three jam packed days of sightseeing and baseball. Monday, July 4, was a great day to drive to Cleveland. Total travel time is just under 8 hours, and it is Interstate 77 the whole way. Our Holiday Inn was in Strongsville, Ohio, and we stopped by to drop off some stuff and head for the first night’s game and fireworks. The Indians can’t remember when they had their last sold-out game, but they had one that night. Progressive Field is a beautiful baseball stadium, with great sight lines and reasonable prices compared to other major league parks. Parking is abundant, and reasonably priced as long as you can use a parking deck. On this particular night, we had

If he had replaced the starting pitcher earlier… The fireworks were fantastic, and each attendee got a small statue of Bob Feller, Cleveland’s best player ever. Tuesday, July 5 was a sunny and cool day, perfect for a ride on a reproduction of a canal boat. Boats like these plied the Erie Canal through the 1800s, until the railroad proved quicker in hauling freight and passengers. We used the car to
visit a lot of the historical sites along the canal, ride the boat on a scenic tour at Canal Fulton, and check out the Cuyahoga National Park. Then we raced back to the game, where the Yanks evened the score with a good thumping of the Indians. Our seats were in the front part of the upper deck, and over home plate. Wednesday, July 6 was the designated day to visit downtown Cleveland and stay there until game time. We started the day with a sightseeing cruise on the waterways of Cleveland
and out into Lake Erie. This was another perfect day, and the venture out into the lake was a great trip, a first for me. The boat was huge, with seating for as many as 1,000 passengers. That might mean it should be called a ship. Next came a real highlight of the whole trip. The USS Cod, a World War ll era submarine, is on display at the Coast Guard Station on Lake Erie. For a nominal fee, we toured the submarine and got a real
sense of what it was like to serve in such close quarters. Up to 97 men lived close to each other, slept in shifts in the same bunks, used 4 toilets and showers, and had some of the best food in the Navy. The Cod saw action numerous times, but only lost one sailor when a torpedo caught fire. Back for another game, where the Yanks took another loss. Our seats were higher in the upper deck, overlooking third base.
The Indians play Cleveland Rocks after the game, and I agree. It is a nice clean city, a beautiful waterfront, reasonable prices, friendly people, and plenty to see and do. We never made it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Maybe next year. But if you want to see professional baseball at a reasonable price, Cleveland is hard to beat. Just check the schedule, see when your team plays there, and go have a great time.
The kudzu beetle has made an appearance in Rowan County A
t the beginning of the growing season, many Rowan County farmers experienced the destructive presence of the sugarcane beetle. Some farmers were able to treat the insect on time while others simply were too late to do anything. Though that battle has come and gone, it is important to understand that the war between farmers and SCOTT insects never stops. TILLEY Farmers battle
many different pests throughout the year. No matter if you are growing a garden for food, flowers for decorations or row crops to feed the world, there is an insect waiting to feed on your plants. Cooperative Extension has learned of the possible presence of the kudzu beetle in the Rowan County area. The kudzu beetle is small insect measuring one-half centimeter long and one-half centimeter wide. When looking at the insect, the body is square in shape. The insect’s color is mingled brown and black colors with a copper glow when seen up close.
Reflexology certification course Reflexologist Cynthia Hill will teach a TCM and Neuro Reflexology Certification Course in Salisbury during the month of October. Hill is trained in the Sorensensistem, a modern approach to reflexology that incorporates the ancient methods of traditional Chinese medicine. Based in research and clinical experience since 1978, and developed by Lone Sorensen, the Sorensensistem impacts the meridian, nervous and vascular systems to relieve the source of the symptoms. This 150 contact hour certification course consists of the history of reflexology; differences between traditional zone therapy and Sorensensistem reflexology; basics of physiology and anatomy; meridians and their functions; how to alleviate muscle pain by balancing the vital organs muscles are associated with;
meridians and how they connect to certain muscle groups; seven basic steps to analyze the source of physical symptoms; muscle zones of the feet; ho;w to analyze imbalances in the spie through neuro foot reflexology; practical application with individual attention from experienced professionals. Students who complete this course will be eligible to sit for national (ARCB) certification. Module 1 (of 7 modules) will be Tuesdays and Thursdays during the month of October from 6-9:30 p.m. (Oct. 4, Oct. 6, Oct. 11, Oct. 13, Oct. 18, Oct. 20, Oct. 25 and Oct. 27). Tuition is $485 and is due by Sept. 1. For information, email Cynthia Hill at cynthh152@ aol.com, email@example.com or call 704-636-4153. Classes will be conducted at First Christian Church, 613 Statesville Blvd.
These insects have powerful wings. Because of this, they have been able to travel from Georgia through South Carolina and into the southwestern region of North Carolina. Dr. Dominic Reisig, a North Carolina State University entomologist, reported the insect’s first appearance in Cleveland, Rutherford and Lincoln counties. On July 15, during the Rowan County corn field day, Reisig traveled to western Rowan County and was able to properly identify the kudzu beetle in soybean fields. Reports have been coming in from Union and Transylvania counties. It is clear to say that the insect
has been on the move. The kudzu beetle can feed on many different types of plants. The first place to look for a kudzu beetle is in a kudzu patch. However, this insect can feed on soybeans and other legumes. This insect is also known for feeding on cotton, wheat and potatoes. Though feeding can be excessive, the beetle may not reproduce on the crop. This does provide some relief when thinking about the future thresholds. But soybeans need to be monitored or scouted periodically. The beetle is a piercing, sucking pest feeding on the stems and leaves of the plant,
Literacy Council to hold Tutor Training Workshop The Rowan County Literacy Council will hold a four-session tutor training workshop starting on Monday, Aug. 15, in the Hurley Room of the Rowan Public Library.

Rowan Helping Ministries to paint media room at Knox SALISBURY — Program participants at Rowan Helping Ministries will be at Knox Middle School today painting the school’s media center. The participants are a part of the New Tomorrows program. The program teaches life skills to shelter guests and helps prepare them to be contributing members of the community. “We are always excited to have members of our community help with special projects,” said Knox Principal Dr. James Davis. Davis added the school’s mission is to: “Love Kids, Support Teachers, Involve Par-
ents, and Pass it On.” “Positive organizations help us reach our goal and we are all extremely grateful,” he said. “I am glad to be able to help the school and to show that our New Tomorrow programs not only helps us individually but helps the community,” said program participant Kenneth Smith. About a dozen church members from Cornerstone toured the school Monday to see what repairs needed to be made. More than 200 members also volunteered their skills to repair efforts.

Free tadpoles give away SALISBURY — Barbara Harrison is giving away more than 1,000 tadpoles during Summer Night Out in downtown Salisbury on Friday. Harrison, also known in the community as “Butterfly Barbara,” said she’ll provide children with 10 tadpoles, a container to keep them in and a small bag of food. “They are very easy to care for,” she said. The tadpoles will likely grow into tree frogs, although Harrison is uncertain. She said they definitely aren’t toads. Harrison said by giving children the tadpoles she providing a handson learning experience. “I want to excite them about nature and educate them to make them aware in hopes that they will become good stewards of God’s creation.” Harrison’s table will also have information about other amphibians, reptiles and insects. She’ll have frogs, snakes, turtles and wooly worms for children to touch. “So many of these things you rarely see anymore,” she said. She’ll have a table set up outside her shop Cinderella’s Closet at 218 B Main St.

Colleague asks for unusual donation Dear Amy: My boyfriend of more than five years recently was approached by a woman he has had a working relationship with for about six months to donate sperm for her to have a child. She has offered him fair financial compensation, and has assured him that he will not have to be a part of this child’s life if he does not want to ASK be. AMY I know this is a difficult situation for him and I want to be there for him if he does agree, but I feel scared of all of the things that could happen. My own insecurities may cloud my judgment. He is going to see a lawyer, so I feel comfortable with the legal issues; but the emotional aspect of this worries me. We are both in our early 30s. We are not ready to start a family, nor are we even sure if we want to do so. He has a great heart, and I cannot imagine he would be happy having no relationship with a child. I would feel totally different if it were an anonymous donation, and not someone he needs to see on a regular basis. How can I be the supportive girlfriend, while facing my own insecurities about this new chapter of his life that I am not a part of? — Dreading in Denver Dear Dreading: There are insecurities, but then there also are very real, very important and very challenging questions raised by this situation, and you should be absolutely honest and forthright. This plan presents an emo-
tional, legal and ethical minefield. Even if these two started out with a signed, airtight contract and money exchanged, babies have a way of subverting even the bestlaid plans. For instance, what if your boyfriend felt the mother wasn’t a very good parent? What if the mother wanted your boyfriend and the child to have a relationship and he didn’t want to? Or what if she denied a relationship that he wanted to have? What if the mother wanted to hook up with a motorcycle gang, or enter the toddler in beauty pageants, or have the whole thing filmed for a reality show? These two know each other professionally. How will your boyfriend feel to see baby pictures on the other person’s desk? Will she be open or discreet about this arrangement? Will he? Will you? This choice affects you profoundly. Everybody involved in this situation should seek professional legal, ethical and emotional guidance. Dear Amy: I think you missed a big red flag in the letter written by “Conflicted,” who said her husband disliked her best friend. This husband sounds controlling, and this situation sounds like the beginning of what could become an abusive marriage, starting with attempts to isolate Conflicted from her support network. Hacking into her email is a dangerous sign that this husband may think that he should have complete domain over his wife. Why shouldn’t Conflicted talk to her best friend about her marriage? Sure, maybe she shouldn’t be reporting personal details like the size of her husband’s assets, but it
sounds like Conflicted was seeking support from her best friend about how to navigate her new marriage — something she ought to keep right on doing, given the bully it seems she may be married to. — Concerned About Conflicted Dear Concerned: Many readers echoed your concerns. Though I did say this husband’s behavior was wrong, in my answer I focused on some of the wife’s choices that I felt contributed to the conflict between these two people in her life. Thank you for waving this “red flag.” Dear Amy: Your advice to “Dog Tired” was way off. As this gentleman explained, he is on the verge of moving in with his girlfriend, but he is concerned about the “custody arrangement” of two dogs she shares with her ex-husband. You suggested he “embrace the canine relationship” when it was crystal clear he doesn’t like dogs. My advice to him would be to tell her, “It’s me or the dogs” and discover how she really feels about him. — Also Dog Tired Dear Dog: When you say, “It’s me or the dogs” to a dog lover, you will find out exactly where you stand. In the doghouse, most likely. Send questions via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611.

Try secondhand first. I’ll often scour garage sales and thrift shops for items that have caught my eye and that I suddenly think I can’t live without but am not sure will serve my needs. I figure if I can pick something up inexpensively to try out, it’s worth it. Last year, I picked up a rectangular folding campfire cooking grate for $1.50 at Goodwill; they sell new for about $14. I used it while camping a couple of weeks ago and decided I didn’t like it because the height can’t be adjusted, so I’ll be donating it. — Spiritdeer,

Uses for Fels-Naptha soap. I love Fels-Naptha soap! I started using it as a child when I would help my mother with the wash and have used it ever since.

Scripted series not a big draw for networks NEW YORK (AP) — Television viewers aren’t too interested in scripted shows during the summer, at least not the shows that broadcast networks are offering. Mostly, they’re reruns, and viewers are looking elsewhere. Only three scripted series ranked among the Nielsen Co. top 10 last week: reruns of “NCIS” and “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS, and the summer cop show from Canada, “Flashpoint.” The paucity is even more pronounced among people ages 18 to 49, where the only scripted show in the top 10 was a cartoon, “Family Guy.” Nielsen says “America’s Got Talent,” “The Bachelorette” and “Big Brother” were big draws last week.

Canning still popular for many
Fifty pounds lighter: You
can do it, too ello there, it’s me…I’m back! I hope that you all are continuing to put the principles of Eat Smart, Move More; Weigh Less (ESMMWL) into practice as you strive for a healthier lifestyle. As I mentioned in my last article, just like many of you, I, too, have issues with weight loss. I remember when I taught my first ESMMWL class, my name was the first name on the roster. I needed to not only be the instructor but also a participant in my own class as well. I am a firm believer that you can’t encourage or promote anything unless you know for a fact that it works and I quickly found out that it does in fact work. At the end of my first course, I had lost about 10 pounds. My coworkers also lost weight during those 15 weeks. But I did not conTOI tinue to follow the principles and DEGREE those pounds I had lost returned, with friends. I continued to try to lose the weight, and over time, new friends joined the old ones that were already there. As I continued to teach ESMMWL and see how well others did on the program, I started to look more at myself and wonder how I could teach this sort of class and not be a role model. Then came the Comprehensive Wellness Initiatives (CWI) — which required employees to attest to tobacco and weight Body Mass Index (BMI) restrictions. Once I found out that this was coming down the pike, I really began to take a hard look at my weight. When I checked the Body Mass Index (BMI) chart, I found out what I already knew — my height and weight were not in line and I would not make the cut. All my new friends had me tipping the scale at about 20 pounds heavier than I had been when I was a student in my own ESMMWL class. I began looking for ways to make some lifelong changes, and in my search I discovered Weight Watchers. Yes, I was a skeptic at first, but at the end of the first week I was five pounds lighter. I quickly started to become a believer and I found that the program and ESMMWL were very much alike. I began my Weight Watchers journey on Monday, Sept. 20, 2010, and since then I have lost 50.4 pounds! I am so excited, and one of my friends calls me Ms. Weight Watchers because I am so committed to the plan. I have never in my life felt better, more in control and unafraid of food. I have taken all that I have learned from both ESMMWL and Weight Watchers and combined them to make a beautiful marriage. I am sharing all this with you all for the following reasons: • You should never be afraid to seek help, encouragement and knowledge about losing weight • I am so amazed at myself for working so hard and staying committed to leading a healthier lifestyle • I want to encourage you all to get on board. I don’t mean that you have to go out and join Weight Watchers, but I want to let you know that you can lose the weight if you work at it. Believe me, it does take work. There is no magic pill, no magic remedy and no quick fix. If so, I would have already found them. It takes hard work, discipline and a desire to look and feel better. Once you start to see results you will want to continue to see how amazing you look in the end. There is no better feeling than for someone to tell you how well you look. I am getting ready for my 20-year class reunion, and I am so looking forward to walking in and looking as if time has stood still for me! I will almost be back at my high school weight — how great is that? Don’t give up; there is hope. Just keep working at it. If I did it, so can YOU! Toi N.

Michelle Field pours water into her pressure cooker while canning tomatoes at her home in St Gabriel, La. Field is a proliﬁc canner who is a relative newcomer to the practice. She began canning about seven years ago. BY STEPHANIE RIEIGEL The Advocate
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — When B.J. Gouedy was growing up on Cammack Plantation in Natchitoches, her family “lived off the land.” “We had fruit trees with pears and peaches and plums and all kinds of vegetables — really everything you could want,” said Gouedy, 65, who now lives in the Broadmoor neighborhood. “Back then, you didn’t go to the grocery story every day.” Instead, her family ate fresh fish and game, along with fresh fruits and vegetables in the summer and canned or preserved goods in the winter. “It was a rural community so the men hunted and fished and the women made preserves,” she said. Canning and preserving is a tradition that Gouedy carries on today with her own grandchildren, even though a wide array of fresh produce is now available year-round and several supermarkets are within a couple of miles of Gouedy’s home. Several days a week for several weeks every summer, Gouedy takes to the kitchen, where she cooks, then cans jars of fig preserves, dewber-
ry jelly and blackberry jam. Gouedy is not alone. Anecdotal information suggests canning is still a popular activity. The Red Stick Farmers Market has held a series of well-attended canning demonstrations this summer, and managers of local supermarkets and hobby stores report that canning supplies move steadily off their stores’ shelves. “Canning supplies are a good item for us,” said Cliff Boulden, who owns the Bet R Supermarket. “Our store is small so we wouldn’t carry something if it didn’t sell.” Not everyone who cans has been doing it for years, either. Michelle Field is a prolific canner who is a relative newcomer to the practice. She began canning about seven years ago, after the lush vegetable garden she grows in a spacious field at her River Road home in St. Gabriel began to take off. With so much available produce, Field said it only made sense to learn how to preserve it for the winter months. “I always have something growing, whether it’s corn, squash, tomatoes, garlic, onion or peppers or fruits,” she said. “So I figured I had to learn how to can.”
produce and canned goods are displayed at Field’s home. It’s the kind of anachronistic custom that is both practical and fun. Like many who can, Field enjoys spending time in the kitchen and finds it relaxing. She also loves having a wide variety of canned goods, which she can use at a moment’s notice to whip up dinner. “I use my canned goods all the time,” she said. “Tonight, for instance, I’m making tortilla soup so I’m using my canned tomatoes, canned peppers garlic and onions, and
my own canned tomato juice,” she said. “I rarely have to go to the grocery store.” Field has found success canning just about anything she can grow. Some fruits and vegetables she cooks first then cans. She makes a homemade marinara sauce with the tomatoes from her garden, for instance, which she uses all year to serve over pasta. She also cooks figs for preserves, peaches and

Diet foods that appeal to your inner glutton
Update from Market at the Mill
China Grove Farmers Market B Y M ICHELE K AYAL For the Associated Press
Tofu Shirataki noodles offer two 20-calorie servings per 8-ounce package.
When’s the last time you were guiltily scraping your way to the bottom of an ice cream carton and noticed this message: “150 calories per pint”? Yes, per pint. Foods aimed at helping you slim down have been around for decades, but a recent wave of ultra-low calorie products — such as the 150-calorie per pint dessert Artic Zero — is making a direct appeal to our national sense of gluttony. “What we’re seeing here is a strategy that says Americans like to stuff their faces,” says food industry analyst Phil Lempert. “And these mean we don’t have to sacrifice.” With two-thirds of American adults overweight or obese, health officials have long warned that ballooning portion sizes are a major factor. Now food manufacturers are testing whether the desire for big servings can make peace with
our need to shed pounds — or at least make big profits. “It’s fine to eat one serving of ice cream, but I can’t remember the last time I sat down with a pint and ate half a cup,” says Amit Pandhi, CEO of Arctic Zero, Inc., whose pints of “ice cream replacement” prominently feature the 150-calorie message. “We feel like a serving is an entire pint. And if you’re looking at it from that point of view, our product is the only one where you can eat a whole pint and not feel like you’re doing something terrible,” says Pandhi. Similarly, commercials for MGD 64, a 64-calorie beer from Chicago-based MillerCoors being heavily marketed this year, pits a tiny martini or petite glass of wine against a cool, full bottle of brew. Meanwhile, the website for its competitor, Anheuser-Busch’s Bud Select 55, promises no pain and no gain, boasting that you can burn

It’s going to be hot at the market; however, the vendors have moved under some huge trees, which should be much cooler and more comfortable for both vendors and shoppers. There should be an abundance of vegetables: lots of tomatoes, including heritage tomatoes; peppers; green beans; peas; squash; cucumbers; okra; and lots of Silver King corn. Free range eggs were available. Fruits included peaches; cantaloupe; watermelons, both round and long ones; and figs. Very nice hanging baskets and small potted plants were available. Beef and pork of all cuts are also available, as well as honey in both pints and quarts. Baked goods from Sweet Pickles looked very good, including bread in whole and half loaves: sourdough, wheat, marble rye, eight-grain and challah. I’m sure the bread would make great sandwiches with the pimento cheese and chicken salad that was for sale. Sweet potato chips and granola were also available. Sweets include crème-filled cookies of chocolate and oatmeal, creme horns and both whole and half-pound cakes. They looked really tasty. Last Friday, I bought some vegetables, fruits and a loaf of wheat bread; all were delicious. So come on out next Friday, between 4 and 7 pm and try some of the great products sold at the Market at the Mill.
CANNING FROM 8A plums for jams, as well as stewed corn, purple hulled peas and squash. Other vegetables, like cucumbers and peppers, she simply pickles with vinegar and spices. Field doesn’t have a favorite home-canned good or canning recipe, though she said she gets the most requests from family and friends for her Pear Relish, which she frequently gives as a gift. “It’s both sweet and savory, like a chowchow,” she said. “Most people like to serve it with vegetables, or with beans or cornbread.” Gouedy is partial to the jellies and jams, which are her specialty. “Nothing beats a hot biscuit, fresh out of the oven, with melted butter and freshly made preserves or jam,” she said. If you’re interested in canning, now is the season to try it. It’s best to use produce when it’s at its freshest, and summer is the time of year when the most fresh fruits and vegetables are available. It’s important, however, to do a little research first. To can effectively and safely, you have to understand the science behind it and make sure to learn how to correctly seal your jars to keep them
DIET FROM 8A off the product’s 55 calories with — ready? — a 54-minute nap. And though Tofu Shirataki noodles from Californiabased House Foods America Corporation, offer two 20calorie servings per 8-ounce package, it’s understood that you’ll eat the whole bag. “Most people eat the whole bag for a meal,” says Yoko Difrancia, the company’s marketing supervisor. “The whole bag is more realistic.” Which means that if you were feeling a need to binge, you could pound down a pile of noodles, a couple brews and a pint of “ice cream” all for 300 calories — the same as one McDonald’s cheeseburger. Consumers seem to be buying it. Sales of Arctic Zero, introduced in 2009, have grown 15 percent to 20 percent per month for the past 18 months, Pandhi says. Many of these products are achieving their low-calorie status with different in-

To accomplish that, you have to completely sterilize your canning jars and lids, and also process your foods in water baths at boiling temperatures or in a pressure cooker. Properly sterilized canned food will be free of spoilage if lids seal and jars are stored below 95 degrees.
Storing jars at 50 degrees to 70 degrees enhances retention of quality. You also have to process filled jars in a water bath of boiling water or in a pressure cooker. The exact time depends on the kind of food being canned, the way it is packed into jars and the size of jars. The time needed to safely process low-acid foods in a

Arctic Zero is made primarily of whey protein and gets its sweetness from organic monk fruit, an Asian gourd the company says is 150 times sweeter than sugar. Tofu Shirataki noodles are made by blending tofu and the root of konnyaku, an Asian yam. Health advocates, dietitians and government programs decry the American propensity to over indulge. But what if we were meant to eat as much as possible? UCLA neuroscientist Dean Buonomano says in his new book, “Brain Bugs: How the Brain’s Flaws Shape Our Lives,” that the human brain was designed to guide us through a world in which dying from starvation was a greater possibility than becoming obese. “There is little doubt that our proclivity toward overeating is in part a product of the fact that we were programmed to derive pleasure from eating, and that in the modern world many of us have essentially unlimited amounts of food at our disposal,” Buonomano said via e-mail.
In 2000, Penn State professor Barbara Rolls began promoting what she calls volumetrics, an approach to healthy eating that shifts the focus from reducing portion size to reducing the number of calories per portion. “When people sit down to a meal and don’t know the calorie count they tend to take a set amount by weight and volume,” says Rolls, whose new book “The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet” will be published next year. So she says the solution is not to reduce the volume of food on the plate, but rather the number of calories in the same volume (called the calorie density). She urges people to do that by adding plenty of water-rich, calorielight foods, such as fruits and vegetables. “The idea is not that you can or should eat a much bigger volume than you typically do,” Rolls says. “It’s that if you eat your usual amount you’re going to feel full but with fewer calories.

boiling-water canner, for instance, ranges from 7 to 11 hours; and the time needed to process acid foods in boiling water varies from 5 to 85 minutes. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Complete Guide to Home Canning, available online, is a thorough and comprehensive resource, complete with tables of exact processing times based on the acidity of the food, the type of processing method you use and your altitude. There are also several good books about canning that not only cover how to can but include recipes as well. Field particularly recommends “Stocking Up” by Carol Hupping. The popular 1977 book is in its third edition and has been updated with new photos. Gouedy also suggests another resource, one which may be harder to find but has wisdom and experience. “If you are lucky enough to have older Southern women in your family, spend time with them in the kitchen,” Gouedy said. “That’s how you will really learn. Most don’t have written recipes and one day you will wonder how family favorites were made.” • • • Locally, you can get your canning questions answered at the Rowan County center for N.C.

Famous Spanish restaurant El Bulli shuts, for now ROSES, Spain (AP) — El Bulli, one of the world’s most acclaimed and award-winning eateries, served its last supper Saturday. On the final menu were 50 dishes with intriguing names like “Clam Meringue,” “Olive Spheres,” and “Hot Cold Gin Fizz.” For more than half of the 24 years that virtuoso chef Ferran Adria has been in charge of its kitchen, the restaurant has maintained the almost unattainable Michelin three-star status and been rated the world’s best restaurant five times by British magazine The Restaurant. After a final dinner and drinks party for faithful clients and staff families, Adria will close down the restaurant and begin turning it into a top level cuisine foundation he hopes to open in 2014. “People think I should be sad but I feel the happiest man in the world,” said Adria. “El Bulli is not closing. It’s just transforming.” He himself will not be sitting at a table for dinner on the final night. “No, I’ll be cooking!” he said. El Bulli’s location in a beautiful and isolated seaside cove on Spain’s far northeastern tip inspired Adria, who started off as a hotel dishwasher, to think about the essence of what makes food taste delicious, prompting him to deconstruct ingredients to what he calls the molecular level. He would then reconstruct each dish using unexpected re-combinations of the original components, presenting them in mouthful-sized por-
tions. Most required instructions on how to eat them, sometimes with bare hands. Food took on unexpected shapes, textures and temperatures as the chef used liquid nitrogen to produce vegetable or fruit foam, airy, ethereal reincarnations of solid food, combining seaweed and tea, or caviar with jellied apples. His “bunuelo de llebre” is a small ball whose external surface is a chilled delicate pastry that conceals “hot liquid hare which you must bite into with your lips closed,” enabling its caramel-like taste to explode inside your mouth. The restaurant’s average price of Ä270 ($388) per head — not including drinks, tax or tips — was another of its distinctive features. The diner could boast more than a million reservation requests yearly at a place that seated just 50 and opened for dinner only, usually just six months a year. The other six months were used by Adria to travel the world in search of ideas and then to conceive and painstakingly practice preparing dishes that have astounded gastronomy critics and dedicated foodies alike. “El Bulli will be opening again, just not for reservations,” said Adria at a farewell press conference in the rock garden outside his restaurant surrounded by dozens of colleagues, former and current. Among them were some of the most famous chefs to come out of the restaurant — current world No. 1 Rene Redzepi of Denmark and Chicago’s Grant Achatz. “For me the spirit of this
place has always been its freedom,” said Redzepi, adding that “the courage and bravery” with which they work in his Noma restaurant “came from here. It was like finding a treasure.” Four of the world’s top five chefs trained at the center, which takes is named from a pet bulldog owned by the German couple who first established a restaurant in the idyllic Cala Montjoi cove back in the late 1950s. “I thought that I knew cooking,” said Achatz, who now runs two restaurants, Alinea and Next, both considered among the leading lights in molecular gastronomy in the U.S. “When I arrived here and walked into the kitchen for the first time (12 years ago) I felt I was on another planet.” Achatz, like others, highlighted Adria’s daring and insistence on constantly breaking new ground. “When I came here, cuisine in America was very stale. Everyone was following each other. So to see someone taking risks, expressing themselves through real food — it lights a fire.” Back in the U.S., he said, “It was very exciting to watch that seed grow and watch it spread over the country.” At 49, Adria said he and his crew need to replenish their inspiration to come up with something new. “There comes a time for change in everything so that we can maintain creativity,” he said. He added that the foundation “will create every day” and present its findings free to the world online. Last year, Adria acknowledged that El Bulli was strug-
gling financially, but on Saturday he flatly denied to The Associated Press that it was closing for financial reasons. His biographer Colman Andrews said that while the restaurant may have lost money, Adria made substantial amounts through books, conferences and side businesses that depended on his name and that of the restaurant. Besides functioning as a think-tank and laboratory with the best chefs and food experts from around the world, Adria said the new establishment would be open for visits to everyone, from multinational executives to school kids. He said it would also be organizing benefit meals for charities and NGOs. Although the premises may be closing to the public, Adria said he would not be stopping. “With things as they are, with the economic crisis, it would be a total lack of respect for me to take holidays,” he said. Adria’s immediate plans are to travel, spreading the Bulli word with trips to China, Peru and the United States, where he will give classes at Harvard. He said serious work on the foundation will begin next January although he hopes to make an important announcement Oct. 4 in Madrid. At the news conference, Adria was presented with a giant-sized white nougat sculpture of a bulldog, in memory of the “bulli” — a local Catalan word — that inspired a name that is now legendary in the culinary firmament.

Are October beans an alternative to lima beans? BY SUE DAVIS For The Salisbury Post
Lima Beans have been in short supply at the market this season, so I went looking for an alternative with the same complex flavor — and found October Beans. These native beans are also known as horticultural beans, cranberry beans and speckled beans. Throughout the south they are preferred in the “shelly stage” when the seeds inside have ripened and have not started to dry. The pods have changed color and have a wilted, rubbery feel, especially near the stem. Unlike dried beans, the “shellies” can be boiled or steamed for 20 to 30 minutes and seasoned like lima beans or butter beans. In addition to October beans, there are fresh crops of green beans and crowder peas. The produce vendors have local tomatoes, corn, squash, peppers, green beans, okra, cucumbers, and several varieties of eggplants. Lee Lys had tender collards last week and large bok choy. She is not sure how long the collards will last in the heat, but she will have baby bok choy Saturday for sure, as well as other late summer favorites at the market this week. Several vendors have Brown Turkey figs again this week. They are plentiful this year, but need picking to stay ahead of the insects that are drawn to the sweetness of the fruit. Remember, figs do not improve after picking and are incredibly fragile when ripe.
When you get them home, refrigerate immediately until you are ready to use them. Another fruit that is abundant this year is peaches. We are fortunate to have vendors coming from orchards with many varieties available to them. There should be another four weeks of peaches. If you have never tried freezing or drying peaches, you might want to try this way of preserving summer’s goodness. Melons are very sweet this season, and blueberries are still available. This is the time when hanging baskets need to be refreshed. Joyce’s Greenhouse has hanging baskets and potted plants for the patio or garden. Bluebird Acres Farm has annuals and perennials. Don’t forget a bouquet of fresh flowers to bring the colors of summer inside. Buying local does not just include produce and plants. There are interesting crafts and prepared salsas, sauces and cheese spreads. Locally raised pasture-fed meat and poultry is available from Wild Turkey Farms and T&D. Fresh eggs are available from several vendors. Our bakers are busy creating new offerings. Have you tried new baguettes and Danish pastries from How Sweet It Is? The Salisbury Farmers Market is open Wednesday from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. until noon at the corner of Bank and South Main streets in downtown Salisbury.

AOL launches personalized magazine app SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Internet company AOL is trying to snatch a larger portion of the tablet computer audience by launching free iPad software that presents a customized, daily e-magazine that draws in content from all over the Web. Called Editions, the software is similar to news-aggregating mobile apps such as Flipboard and Pulse, but more focused on bringing users a finite, tailored amount of content that updates once per day. AOL’s app is being released today. David Temkin, AOL Inc.’s head of mobile products, said the Editions team spent much of the past year trying to create an app that was like a morning newspaper, but more “sci-fi.” As a result, Editions includes a variety of default sections such as top news, sports, technology and business that users can tweak.
Users can edit preferences within each section down to the celebrities, companies and tech gadgets they enjoy reading about. Like a newspaper or magazine, stories in Editions are ranked in importance by their size on the page, except it uses software rather than human editors to do so. The app has a retro-styled design that starts up to show a closed magazine lying atop a wood-grained background. Each day, the latest version of Editions sports a different cover story. A small address label includes the user’s name, location and local weather. Users can decide what time they’d like Editions to be delivered, and they can flip through about a week’s worth of back issues. Because Editions doesn’t have licenses with content publishers, the app typically takes users to the publisher’s website to read the full story.

CLEANING UP KNOX MIDDLE
A fresh layer of stability n Salisbury years, Knox Middle School is not so old. Built as a junior high in the 1960s, it’s about 40 years younger than Salisbury High School. But while Principal Windsor Eagle has been at Salisbury High since 1980 — an amazing 31 years — Knox is on its fourth principal since just 2008. That’s a lot of turnover at the top, a lot of people starting out with great plans and making a quick exit. The school has not had a consistent advocate and administrator for years.

Reid’s complaints ring hollow Let he who is without partisanship cast the first stone enate Majority Leader Harry Reid frequently accused Republicans of playing partisan politics during the debt ceiling crisis. “The moment for partisan games is long since passed,” Reid said July 21. “It is time for patriots on both sides of the aisle to join hands and actually govern.” On July 26, Reid released a statement headlined “REPUBLICANS PUT POLITICS BYRON AHEAD OF YORK THE ECONOMY.” And on July 24, Reid cast himself as a bipartisan compromiser, trying to talk sense into his partisan adversaries. “We hope Speaker Boehner will abandon his ‘my way or the highway’ approach,” Reid said, “and join us in forging a bipartisan compromise.” Now, both sides have joined hands and governed. But Reid’s words raise a question: What’s wrong with partisanship in the debate over the debt ceiling? It’s a political dispute, and it hardly seems possible, or perhaps even desirable, to remove partisanship from it. If you want proof that partisanship is an enduring part of debt ceiling arguments, you need look no farther than the
record of Harry Reid himself. Not counting the current standoff, in the last decade the Senate has passed 10 increases to the debt limit. During that time, Reid always voted to raise the debt ceiling when Democrats were in control of the Senate, and never voted to raise the debt ceiling when Republicans were in control. Some of Reid’s colleagues also accuse Republicans of partisanship in the debt fight. “It’s time for bipartisan leadership, not partisan gamesmanship,” said the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, Richard Durbin, after Republicans pulled out of budget talks with President Obama. And Obama himself described the debt debate as a “partisan three-ring circus” — leaving no doubt that he considered the Republicans guilty of partisanship. But a look at Durbin’s record shows that he, too, has voted along party lines when it comes to the debt ceiling. In the last decade, Durbin always voted to increase the debt limit when Democrats were in control and never voted to in-
crease the debt limit when Republicans were in control. Obama was in the Senate for just four votes to raise the debt ceiling. He missed two of them, voted yes once when Democrats were in charge, and voted no once when Republicans were in charge. Here are the 10 votes to raise the debt ceiling since 2002, according to the Congressional Research Service. • On June 11, 2002, with the Senate in Democratic hands, Reid and Durbin voted to bring the total national debt to $6.4 trillion. • On May 23, 2003, with the Senate in Republican hands after the November 2002 midterm elections, Reid and Durbin voted against a bill to raise the debt limit to $7.384 trillion. • On Nov. 17, 2004, Reid voted “present” and Durbin voted against a bill to bring the total debt to $8.184 trillion. • On March 16, 2006, Reid, Durbin and Obama voted against a bill to bring the total debt to $8.965 trillion. • On Sept. 27, 2007, with the Senate back in Democratic hands, Reid and Durbin voted to increase the national debt to $9.815 trillion. Obama, running for president, did not vote. • On July 26, 2008, Reid and Durbin voted to increase the national debt to $10.615 trillion. Obama did not vote. • On Oct. 1, 2008, Reid,
Durbin and Obama voted to increase the national debt to $11.315 trillion. • On Feb. 13, 2009, Reid and Durbin voted to increase the national debt to $12.104 trillion. • On Dec. 24, 2009, Reid and Durbin voted to increase the national debt to $12.394 trillion. • On Jan. 28, 2010, Reid and Durbin voted to increase the national debt to $14.294 trillion. The point of this is not to show that Reid and Durbin are uniquely partisan, although the partisan pattern of their votes is unmistakable. Others are partisan, too; until the new debt deal, the Senate GOP leader, Mitch McConnell, voted to increase the MCCONNELL debt limit when Republican George W. Bush was president and against increasing the debt limit when Democrat Barack Obama was president. The point is that leaders who have voted along strictly partisan lines might want to think twice before denouncing others as partisan. • • • Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.
D.B. Cooper mystery may be solved Scripps Howard News Service
jon c. lakey/salsibury post
a cameraman focuses on a group preparing to tour Knox Middle school on Monday.
Let’s hope Principal James Davis changes that trend. As Knox’s new principal, he is already getting the community involved in sprucing up the school. A plea from teacher Joy Jenkins brought volunteers from Cornerstone Church to take a look at the school Monday. Parents rounded up more volunteers on Facebook to be there today. Kudos to them all. Davis needs strong support from the community and the central office to succeed. Volunteers will be working in a unique structure at 1625 Park Road — a group of structures, actually. Knox has a separate building for each of the three grades, in addition to a gym building, auditorium/library structure and offices. Talk about quick exits. The pod concept considered cuttingedge in the 1960s now seems like a security nightmare, with dozens of doors to the outside. There’s been talk of replacing the school with a new building at a cost of $17.5 million, but that’s a long-range need without a timeline or funding. Knox may be a victim of outdated design and deferred maintenance. But its biggest problem is the revolving door on the principal’s office. Year after year, parents roll up their sleeves to make their children’s years at Knox the best they can be. Volunteers can only do so much without a consistent school leader to guide the faculty and advocate for the school at the system level. Davis has come in with a 100-day plan to get started. Ideally, he’ll also draw up a five-year plan to stay at Knox and make meaningful improvements — improvements that will raise test scores and maintain discipline. Knox needs cleaning up, but without strong, stable leadership, the change is only superficial.

n the unsettled years of the ’70s, D.B. Cooper was a hero to some and a mystery to all. No one from that era seems to have known him but none have forgotten him. On Nov. 24, 1971, D.B. Cooper, a man in his 40s, dressed in a dark suit and tie, boarded a Northwest Orient flight out of Portland, ordered a bourbon and water, lit a cigarette and presented the stewardess with a skyjacking note. He had a bomb in his briefcase, it said. In accordance with his instructions, the flight diverted to Seattle where the passengers were exchanged for $200,000 in $20 bills and four parachutes. Somewhere west of Portland, over the lower Cascades, Cooper lowered the aft stairway, directly under the tail on that jetliner, and jumped. And that, nearly 40 years later, is all that is known about Cooper — until now. The FBI has come into possession of a clue, described as “exciting.” “It’s the most promising lead we have right now,” said an FBI spokeswoman, and having looked it over, “it seems pretty interesting.” The clue, whatever it is, is now at the FBI lab in Quantico, Va., where the bureau is believed to have Cooper’s fingerprints and DNA from the flight. Cooper has provided endless hours of speculation on his fate. Some believe he could not have survived a 10,000-foot jump on a freezing night wearing only a business suit and is now mulch along the Columbia River. Some believed he survived and headed off to warmer climes. At least some of the money did survive. Children playing on a sandbar discovered a pack of the ransom money in 1980. Opinion is divided over whether Cooper, who would now be in his 80s if he did indeed survive, is a Robin Hood or a simple thief. Either way there is a sneaking admiration for his daring. Dona Elliott, proprietor of the Tavern in tiny Ariel, Ore., the town closest to his probable landing site, offered this explanation to Alex Hannaford of The Daily Telegraph, the reporter most closely following the story: “Because the government is always screwing us over and finally someone got ‘em back.” That explanation would fit, maybe not in the ‘70s, but certainly in this day and age.
LETTERS City manager had higher commission Twenty years ago, I moved to Salisbury and have witnessed the changes that have taken place in downtown as well as the city proper under the leadership of our “TREME-nduous” city manager. The transformation has been awesome. A year ago I opened “Faye’s on main” in the 100 block of North Main with fear and trepidation considering the economy downturn. One Saturday morning, David Treme wandered in to check out the new shop, having been sent by Kirk at “Tastebuds,” where he had been taking a coffee break. He was dressed in a comfortable old sweatshirt, like most men on weekends, and I did not know him from Adam’s housecat, but he seemed to like my furniture shop. He said that he and his wife were doing some remodeling and he liked a couple of pieces. I suggested that he might take a piece home to see if it was

right before he committed to it. Realizing that I didn’t know him, I casually (or so I thought) asked him if he lived in Salisbury, and he said, “Oh yes, just a few blocks away.” He then looked at me knowingly, and said, “I’m David Treme, I’ve been the city manager for almost 25 years, so I’ll return.” I thought, “All right, Mr. Treme, take the rest of the shop if you want.” I have since met his family whom I have come to love and respect as the wonderful people they are. He has prayed over my shop and family when they were floundering and he along with his wife, Karen, have always been encouraging.
There are individuals who walk among us, often unperceived, possessing a higher “commission” on their lives than the rest of us. David is such a person, whose calling is to be “God’s Man, for Salisbury.” Rest assured that his plotted course and long-range decisions have been made after much prayer and deliberation for the good of the merchants and citizens. The absence of his leadership will be a great loss to Salisbury. Our prayers go with him along with undying gratitude for his service. As he told me when first we met, he’ll be close-by when needed. — Faye T. Holder Salisbury
Tests and adequate yearly confusion Winston-Salem Journal
ost citizens find government statistics baffling, leaving them searching for a reliable explanation. We fear that the latest education numbers, those called “Adequate Yearly Progress” and required under the “No Child Left Behind” Act, will do more to confuse than to enlighten the public. The news looks bad. The Associated Press reported, “Many of the state’s 2,500 public schools failed to make adequate yearly progress. ...” With far too many government agencies, the statistics
are calculated to make programs look good. ... The adequate progress statistic diverges from that tradition of sugar-coated statistics. Instead, it pours lemon juice on them. Citizens should be mindful of two points as they peruse these numbers. First, the definition of adequate yearly progress means that a school must have hit all of its many academic goals during the past year. A school could have 21 goals, meet 20 of them for a 95.2 percent mark, and still be said to have failed to make adequate progress. Second, the act made the
standards tougher this year. That’s why the success statistics do not compare with last year’s. It’s like saying you made adequate fitness progress last week by doing 20 pushups but failed this week by doing 22 because the standard is now 25 pushups. We’re not complaining about high standards, especially for education. But we would like to see the ever-increasing standards for the public schools matched by ever-increasing support from the Congress and the General Assembly. In the past several years, we’ve seen just the opposite.

CONTINUED/AREA and tourism.” The Joint Marketing Committee, a combined effort between the city and county tourism groups, already supports arts and cultural events in Rowan County, including the Salisbury Sculpture Show, Meacham said. Initial projections show a 17-to-20 percent savings for the arts council under the new arrangement, Meacham said. To handle the additional work, one part-time position at the Convention & Visitors Bureau likely would become full-time, he said. However, all four employees at the bureau would help administer the arts council, he said. The proposal needs the blessing of City Council, the Rowan County Board of Commissioners, the tourism boards and member agencies before moving forward, Meacham said. So far, arts leaders in the community have been supportive, he said. Both Salisbury and Rowan County cut funding for the arts council by 10 percent this year. State funding also will decrease. Despite those cuts, Meacham said local arts groups will see more money as soon as this month, when the state makes its allocation. “We will get more money out to those organizations than they saw last year,” he said. If the model is adopted, the arts council must adhere to N.C. open meetings laws, Meacham said. Meetings would be advertised, and agendas and minutes would be available to the public. “The arts council would be much more open and accessible,” he said. “The more information we can provide to the public, the better.” The idea is based on a recommendation made in the city’s 2008 Cultural Action Plan, Morris said.
be split among arts groups, said James Meacham, who leads the visitors bureau. “It would be a fabulous improvement to the arts community,” said Joe Morris, Salisbury planning director who presented the proposal Tuesday to City Council. City Council members liked the idea and agreed to release a quarterly payment of $10,125 for the arts council to the Rowan County Convention and Visitors Bureau. City Council has been withholding Salisbury’s $40,500 annual allocation until the arts council had a plan to reorganize. The city’s yearly allocation, plus $22,500 from Rowan County, act as matching funds to pull down an additional $31,119 from the N.C. Arts Council. Most of the money is distributed to local arts organizations, but about 50 percent of state funds have gone to overhead, Meacham said. “The ultimate goal is to reduce overhead costs for the arts council and allow more grassroots funding to go directly to arts organizations in the community,” Morris said. Under the new proposal, the arts council would still operate as an autonomous, nonprofit group and distribute funding to the “big three” arts organizations — Waterworks, Piedmont Players and the Salisbury Symphony — as well as smaller arts groups. The council would plan and promote arts programs and education. “This would not diminish the identity of the arts council,” Morris said. The model calls for a 13person arts council board consisting of five appointees from the arts community and four each from the Salisbury and Rowan County tourism development authorities. Meacham serves both tourism authorities, which are funded with hotel room taxes paid by visitors. “This is a good move,” he said. “There is a strong conContact reporter Emily nection between arts, culture Ford at 704-797-4264.

Debt is a done deal, but uncertainty causes problems in markets WASHINGTON (AP) — With scant time to spare, President Barack Obama signed legislation Tuesday to avoid an unprecedented national default that he said would have devastated the U.S. economy. But the truce with Republicans that defused the crisis seemed to be fading already. Wall Street crumpled, dismayed by reports of new economic weakness and unimpressed by Congress’ pre-
scription. The Dow Jones industrial average sank by 266 points, its eighth straight losing session, and biggest. The compromise deal to persuade GOP lawmakers to raise the federal debt limit — U.S. borrowing was to collide with it at midnight — will cut federal spending by $2.1 trillion or more over the next decade. But Obama immediately challenged Republicans to ac-
and from work in Mooresville. He suggests a caution light just like the one at the intersection just a few miles past the store. The problem, said one resident who didn’t want to be named, is the trees. “You can’t see past the trees,” he said. When told work crews cleared tree limbs already, the man said more needs to be done. He also recommended a caution light. “Since I was a boy there has always been a problem at this intersection.” Akura Rickett hopes the changes will make a difference. “Only time will tell. It’s hard to say.” He too thinks the cause of many of the accidents are the result of people in a hurry. He also believes some residents who travel the road frequently are too familiar and just keep moving. The work crew was expected to work through Friday, but finished in one day.
nessed a girl who was killed at that intersection and later that same day, another collision. He’s been in business since 2003. “It’s mostly people not paying attention,” he said. Efird also attributes a lack of signage as an issue. Crews have put up new signs. He said the DOT is “trying hard to make improvements.” “They’ve done all they can,” Efird said. Traffic is at its heaviest in the early morning and during the hours after school. Jamie Murphy who lives in the area said traffic is “slow and go” because motorists blow through stop signs, most barely stopping. “I don’t think it will make a difference,” he said. Murphy travels the road twice a day to take his wife to

It’s Glennon’s time BY JOEDY MCCREARY Associated Press
RALEIGH — For the first time, Mike Glennon isn’t facing a familiar obstacle to playing time at North Carolina State. No longer is he just a potential-laden backup to Russell Wilson. The three-year starter and two-sport standout transferred to Wisconsin during the offseason. Now, the job clearly is Glennon’s. The redshirt junior and prototypical pocket passer took his first official snaps as the unquestioned starter Tuesday when the Wolfpack began preseason practice. “That’s what I came here for — I came here to be the starting quarterback,” Glennon said. “Now my time has come.” Glennon — who has a 6-foot-6 frame, a smooth delivery and a towering presence in the pocket — spent most of the past three
years patiently waiting on the bench while Wilson solidified himself as one of the top quarterbacks in school history. “I’m excited for him because I know that he’s waited his turn, he’s been patient, he’s worked very hard to understand the offense,” coach Tom O’Brien said. “He’s just one of 11 that have got to be out there. Ten guys have to rally around (him) and 11 guys have got to do the job if we’re going to be any good on offense.” Especially since last year remains so fresh in the Wolfpack’s minds. With Wilson — a former ACC rookie of the year — calling the signals, N.C. State had its best year since Philip Rivers was around in 2002, finishing 9-4 with a Champs Sports Bowl win over West Virginia. Meanwhile, Glennon redshirted in 2008 and was relegated mostly to mop-up duty during the associated press

That smell is college football
BY GENE COLLIER Scripps Howard News Service
With the NFL lockout now fully resolved, I don’t suppose we could work up a good, cleansing, 135-day lockout of college football. A pity. Contracts have been signed, schedules arranged, and who knows which bowl committees already have made plans for bribes, for strippers, and for bankrolling (oh my god) politicians. So, no, there’s likely no turning back now. Get ready for all the color and pageantry, odiferous as it may be. The big-time college game never exactly has passed the smell test without twitching at least every other nostril, but its aroma right now is positively wretch worthy. It’s so bad in the new 12-team Big Ten Conference that the respected leadership can’t even talk about it. Even octogenarian oracle Joe Paterno, asked specifically about the Ohio State cesspool the other day, darted the other way faster than he has moved in 30 years. “Ohio State to me has been a great, great, great college football program through the years,” Joe said. “I sure as heck don’t want to start being critical of situations when I’m not that familiar with them. I try not to even read anything about it. I try to make sure we’re doing what we’re supposed to do, period.” Joe wasn’t the 1942 Brooklyn Prep dodge ball champion for nothing. Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio wasn’t so nimble, calling ousted Buckeyes boss Jim Tressel “a tragic hero in my respect, in my view.” That’s some Shakespearean contortion right there. Tressel learns of serious violations involving his
South’s Jones, West’s Perrine stayed busy BY MIKE LONDON firstname.lastname@example.org
LANDIS — South Rowan’s Kaitlyn Jones and West Rowan’s Sarah Perrine are unlikely to ever tire of softball. The acid test came this summer when their Charlotte-based Lady Blues travel team played 46 games in a seven-week stretch in June and July in which they competed against top players from 14 different states. The pair of rising seniors traveled as far as Colorado. “You can get tired driving to Colorado because that’s a 25-hour trip,” Jones said. “Gas is high, but it’s still cheaper than a plane ticket. We saved a little money.” Runner-up in the ASA State Championships in July, the Blues were one of the better teams in the Carolinas. “We won most of our games,” Perrine said. “We had a very strong team, built for speed. We tripled the score on a lot of people.” Officially, the Blues outscored foes 236 to 127, shut out 16 opponents and batted .323 as a team. The Blues went 16-4 against Carolinas competition, but it got more challenging out west. They finished the summer 30-16. “The competition was real tough in Colorado — 18 and under travel ball is a whole different world than high school softball,” Jones said. “The teams from the West Coast play year round. They were all very good.” Perrine is a shortstop, but her speed also makes her a valuable outfielder. She played some center field when a teammate went down with a broken ankle. “I’m kinda fast so I can play outfield if I’m needed,” said Perrine, who stole six bases and batted .500 in the Battle of the Border Showcase between all-stars from North and South Carolina. “It helps to be versatile, but shortstop is my position. I think that’s where everyone looks at me.” suBMitted photo

Otah finally healthy BY PETE IACOBELLI Associated Press
SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Carolina Panthers right tackle Jeff Otah figured he’d need only a couple of weeks to bounce back from knee surgery during preseason camp a year ago, maybe even in time for the season opener. Instead, the four-year veteran never played a down as problems in the left knee continued all season long. These days, the 6-foot-6, 330-pound Otah is back, healthy and ready to be the dominant blocker he’s usually been. “It was very frustrating,” Otah said at Panthers camp Tuesday. “Good thing it was last season and we’ve got this season to look forward to.” Otah had few positives last season. He and his coaches

thought the arthroscopic surgery he had last August would get him back in time for the season. Nothing ever felt right, Otah said, and he was held out of practices. Even worse was what Otah had to watch from the sidelines as the Panthers had one of their worst offensive seasons in history. “It would’ve been nice to help,” Otah said. Some even wondered if Otah was simply being too conservative with a minor injury. He was finally put on injured reserve with Carolina at 1-7 and on the way to a dismal season. “It might’ve been slow to heal, I don’t know,” Otah said. “But I’m ready to go.” Otah did his best during
16 new starters since Shanahan’s arrival BY JOSEPH WHITE Associated Press

Mike shanahan has made major changes.
ASHBURN, Va. — Free agent receiver Santana Moss opted to re-sign with the Washington Redskins instead of going somewhere else. Such a decision usually comes with the benefit of maintaining friendships and camaraderie established over the years in the locker room. Instead, Moss probably should consider wearing a name tag in the dining hall. His longtime friend Clinton Portis is gone. So is Phillip Daniels. Plus Andre Carter, Rocky McIntosh, Casey Rabach, Derrick Dockery, Donovan McNabb, Albert Haynesworth and a host of other familiar faces. “It’s different,” Moss said. “But
it would have felt even weirder if I went somewhere else and didn’t see those guys.” That’s one way to look at it. Besides, change has been a constant for the Redskins over the last decade, with coaches and quarterbacks coming and going with revolving door regularity. Sixteen of 22 starters have been replaced since Mike Shanahan was hired last year. Moss is one of the six still atop the depth chart from the Jim Zorn days, along with tight end Chris Cooley, linebackers London Fletcher and Brian Orakpo, cornerback DeAngelo Hall and safety LaRon Landry. The Redskins have signed players with such breathtaking speed

Griffin doesn’t take days off Associated Press OKLAHOMA CITY — Even with NBA players locked out by the league, Los Angeles Clippers All-Star Blake Griffin isn’t taking any days off. Griffin hosted the opening day of his first annual basketball camp for kids in Oklahoma City on Tuesday, then squeezed in a private onehour workout afterward with the hope of improving on his Rookie of the Year season. Griffin has also been busy with appearances for a growing number of sponsors after his leap over the hood of a car to win the NBA’s slam dunk title, and last weekend he was part of his brother’s wedding in Tulsa. “I haven’t stopped working out really since May,” Griffin said. “It’s been every day, sneaking it in whenever I can.” Griffin says it’s frustrating for him to think that the NBA games may be interrupted after his first season playing in the league. Griffin missed all of the 2009-10 season with a broken kneecap after he had been the No. 1 draft pick out of Oklahoma. “Now my first three seasons, I could play 82 games,” Griffin said. “So, we’ll see what happens.” The NBA and its players returned to the bargaining table Monday, but Commissioner David Stern left say-
ing he was no longer optimistic about the process. On Tuesday, the league took two actions against the NBA players association, filing an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board and a lawsuit in federal district court in New York. Neither team proposed a new collective bargaining agreement during the negotiations Monday. “Hopefully from here on out, it’s a little better,” Griffin said, adding: “I think things will start to move a little faster once the season gets closer and closer.” The regular season is scheduled to start on Nov. 1, and training camps typically open about a month before then. That leaves little time to reach a deal between two sides that seem miles apart. “You just stay ready really, That’s really all I can do — pace myself, stay ready,” Griffin said. “I have to take a little time off every now and then to make sure your body’s going to be fresh, because you can’t be working out for six months straight. It is tough, but at the same time you’ve got to put in the work.” Griffin led all rookies with 22.5 points and 12.1 rebounds per game last season, becoming the first rookie All-Star since Yao Ming in 2003. He called that first season a “pretty good one, but I’m
SOFTBALL FROM 1B Because of her unusual speed, fine arm and good size, Perrine, already a two-time all-county player, is a Division I prospect. Quite a few coaches stopped by Mount Ulla to watch her last season. She said she’s gotten a few offers, but she hasn’t made a commitment yet. “The past six years or so, the Lady Blues have had about 50 D-I girls,” Perrine said. “All seven seniors signed D-I two years ago, and all three went D-I last year. “Hopefully, it’s my turn now.” Jones plays shortstop for South, but she’s primarily a third baseman at the elite level. She has a strong bat and dependable glove, but she doesn’t have Perrine’s wheels. She’s sure to sign with someone, but it will likely be at a smaller school. Jones lists Belmont Abbey, Wingate, Francis Marion and Salem as colleges that have shown interest. “I don’t think anyone who
has made this team has ever not signed somewhere,” Jones said. “There’s some satisfaction in that.” Both Rowan girls said playing for the Lady Blues is fun, but it’s also serious business. Coach Monica Armendarez lives in Kannapolis, but she was a hard-hitting, record-setting infielder who broke records at Indiana in the late 1990s. Armendarez was a four-time All-Big Ten player and a two-time All-American, so she knows what it takes to succeed in college softball. “She’s a really strong coach and is very hard on us,” Perrine said. “Most of the teams we played weren’t as disciplined as we were, and not all the teams had curfews like we did, but when it came time to play the games we were al-
looking forward to next year already and getting better.” Griffin said he wants to improve his all-around game, particularly his shooting, after gaining the most notoriety for the slam dunk contest. “I think people recognize me for that a lot more than for a lot of other stuff, and that’s fine. That’s what happens,” he said. “But my whole goal is to be an overall player and to be more than onedimensional.” For now, at least, Griffin said he isn’t joining other NBA stars in seeking opportunities to play overseas if there is an extended lockout. Nets point guard Deron Williams was the first big name to make such a move, signing with a Turkish team. “I’m not opposed to playing overseas but right now it’s not something I’m worried about or putting any thought into it,” Griffin said. While he’s back home in Oklahoma City, Griffin will host a four-day basketball camp he says is “structured to really get better and not just play in a bunch of games” — something he didn’t have access to while growing up — and a charity bowling event Friday night to benefit Stand Up To Cancer and a college scholarship named after Wilson Holloway, a high school teammate who died of Hodgkin’s lymphoma earlier this year.
ways prepared and ready to play our best.” Jones agreed. “The Lady Blues are about discipline and dedication,” she said. “We work hard at softball. It’s like a college team. That’s the main thing.” Perrine and Jones are kicking back this week. Well, sort of. They’re resting from softball, but both have started volleyball practice with their school teams. “I couldn’t believe how sore I was after the first volleyball practice,” Perrine said. “I’m in shape, but you use a whole different bunch of muscles for volleyball.” In less than a week, Perrine and Jones will also be trying out to play with the Lady Blues fall travel team. Yes, they get to try out all over again. Nothing’s easy with the Blues. So will there ever be a real vacation from softball? “Yeah, Thanksgiving to Christmas,” Perrine said with a laugh. “We take a break then because of the holidays and because it’s so cold. But then we start to miss it.”

FroM 1B quarterback and others, discusses them with Terrelle Pryor’s handlers back home rather than his Ohio State bosses or the NCAA, then goes 12-1 with a fistful of ineligible players. Yeah, that’s heroic. At least Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany called it “embarrassing” that Ohio State is neck deep in the NCAA soup and that Michigan is only now crawling out after deposed genius Rich Rodriguez over-practiced the Wolverines into losing 75 percent of their conference games in his three seasons. But let’s not dwell on local problems. That was some media day staged at the new 12-team Pacific-12 (what a clever name), with Oregon coach Chip Kelly choosing not to explain how he managed to write a check to Texas recruit trafficker Willie Lyles for $25,000, which, as someone noted, is the stupidest thing of its kind since thenCincinnati mayor Jerry Springer paid for a prostitute with a city check. At least Jerry got what he paid for. Kelly got useless recruiting info from the previous year. Meanwhile, Oregon’s opponent in the supposed national championship game last season, Auburn, is proud to announce its historical position in the founding of the new Newton rule. This is technically still in the works by something called the NCAA Division I Amateurism Cabinet (seriously, a cabinet ... a small drawer is more than necessary). It is named for Cecil Newton, who allegedly tried to convince Mississippi State to fork over $180,000 for the services of his son Cam (now of the Carolina Panthers). Cam wound up going to Auburn, which won the national title while NCAA investigators tried to figure out if the Tigers really got the $180,000 discount. But because Cecil was not an

OTAH FroM 1B the long break to strengthen the knee and make sure he’d be ready to go when the Panthers and new coach Ron Rivera opened training camp. He said he knew in the middle of the lockout that his knee would hold up through practice. Looking to try and look past all the things that happen in the past and get with this team now and try and get better man and get this thing going,” Otah said. When healthy, Otah has been a critical piece of the of-
agent and Mississippi State did not boat the big fish, no rule was violated, at least not by its letter. The new Newton rule will make anyone, not just an agent, who tries to extort money in exchange for a player’s services feel the NCAA’s wrath, such as it is. So, with all the work involved in the realigning of programs into new conferences (Utah’s in the Pac-12 and TCU, which I’m not even sure is on the East side of Forth Worth, Texas, is headed to the Big East), it seems as if all of college football might have simply been split into two divisions, The Probation Division and The Under Investigation Division. Southern California is on probation. North Carolina is under investigation for nine potential major violations including the alleged direct financial transfer of funds from an agent to a coach, which helped coach Butch Davis get fired this week with, he said, essentially no knowledge of anything improper. Alabama is on probation, but only in 16 sports. Florida International, Central Florida and New Mexico are on probation. This summer, probation-bound Ohio State did the minimally honorable thing by announcing that it was vacating all of 2010’s wins. I’m sure they were thrilled to hear that at Eastern Michigan, the victim of a 73-20 September thrashing at the hands of Pryor and the Ineligibles. In ESPN’s splendid 30-for-30 film series, the best work might be “The Best That Never Was,” which is the story of star-crossed Mississippi schoolboy Marcus Dupree. The film shows in the most compelling ways possible the extent to which the leading college football programs of the early ‘80s, notably Oklahoma and Texas, were willing to prostitute themselves for Dupree’s services. Its unavoidably nostalgic tone might suggest to the casual fan that this is not the way things are done in 2011. And that’s true. It’s a lot more sinister, a lot more elaborate, a lot more pathological today.

fensive line. He started 12 games as a rookie in 2008 when DeAngelo Williams rushed for 1,515 yards and 18 touchdowns. A year later, Otah helped Williams and Jonathan Stewart both rush for more than 1,000 yards. Minus Otah out last year, Stewart was the team’s top rusher with 770 yards and the Panthers ended with a franchise worst 196 points scored. Left tackle Jordan Gross said he was glad to have Otah back on the line — and back to his old self this summer. “I wouldn’t say he was depressed (last year), but it got to him having teammates look at him differently, coaches

Tiger returns after layoff Associated Press
AKRON, Ohio — Tiger Woods was on the practice range just as the sun began to rise Tuesday over Firestone, his first time on a PGA Tour golf course in nearly three months. Even as the season heads toward a conclusion, Woods can’t wait to get started. “I’m excited to compete, to play,” Woods said. “And hopefully, to win the tournament.” That part about Woods hasn’t changed. It’s everything else in the world of golf he once ruled that is so much different. Woods showed up at the Bridgestone Invitational at No. 28, his lowest world ranking since the start of his first full season on the PGA Tour. He has a new caddie — at least temporarily — in Bryon Bell, a childhood friend who now heads up a design business that is not getting much work these days with a downturn in the industry. He no longer is the dominant force in golf, having gone 20 months since his last win at the Australian Masters. For Woods, however, the biggest change is how he feels about his health. “The great thing is I don’t feel a thing,” Woods said. “It feels solid. It feels stable. No pain. That’s one of the reasons why I took as long as I did to come back, is that I want to get to this point where I can go ahead and start playing golf again like this. It’s been a very long time, and it feels good to go out there today and hit balls like this, go practice and feel nothing and walk around and pretty much do anything I want on the golf course.” Asked how long it has been since he felt so good physically, Woods replied, “Years.” It almost seems that long ago since he was last in action. Woods, who was No. 1 in the world at the Bridgestone Invitational a year ago, has not played since he walked off the

kind of question where he’s at,” Gross said. “He’s makes outthis whole line better.” Center Ryan Kalil said the return of Otah has brought an energy to practice that was absent last season. “He really is a game-changing type tackle,” Kalil said. Rivera is counting on Otah to hold the line and again power the Panthers offense. “He’s a big, physical guy who’s got the kind of athletic ability you like,” the coach said. “He’s got a nice, powerful presence about him and he’ll help influence and impact the way we do things on offense.” Otah’s made it through the first few days of Panthers

course after nine holes May 12 at The Players Championship with recurring injuries to his left knee and Achilles tendon. He said he injured them during the third round of the Masters while hitting a shot an awkward stance in the pine straw on the 17th hole. Woods said if he had sat out the rest of May, he would have been fine the rest of the year, a lesson he learned this time around. Woods wasn’t about to return until he was 100 percent healthy, and he is convinced of that now. He said he started hitting balls a couple of weeks ago, without giving an exact date, and that he got the itch to start playing soon after. Woods said he thought about playing The Greenbrier Classic last week, but decided to wait a little more. What gets him excited? “Trying to beat these boys,” Woods said. “That’s fun. Getting out there and trying to win golf tournaments, being there with a chance to win, whether you win or fail. Just being there is just a rush, and it’s just so much fun. Trying to pull off the shots that you’ve done in practice when it matters the most, see what you’ve got. That’s fun.”
will look. As usual, it all starts with the quarterback, the position that m akes the team’s prospects look so tenuous. John Beck (no starts since 2007) and Rex Grossman (four starts since 2007) will compete for the starting job, but Beck has been the only one of the two in camp because Grossman was a free agent. Beck has been inconsistent so far,
camp without problems, other than some shoulder soreness from an earlier injury. Otah was part of most firstteam drills Tuesday when the Panthers held a spirited practice in shoulder pads. • No. 1 draft pick Cam Newton continued as the camp focus for the several hundred fans who turned out Tuesday. Newton’s arm strength and speed brought cheers from the crowd and admiration from Rivera. “Wow,” was Rivera’s first reaction when asked about his rookie quarterback. “He does some things that really light you up and get you excited.”

not surprising given the lack of offseason practices. “His arm was a little sore today,” Shanahan said Tuesday. “I could see it. He didn’t quite have the zip on it that he normally has.” Grossman arrived at camp Tuesday and signed a one-year contract. He will begin practice Thursday.

COLLEGE HOOPS LEXINGTON, Ky. — Al Horford never thought he'd spend a month training with the Dominican Republic national team in the middle of Kentucky. But because Kentucky's John Calipari is coaching the Dominican Republic's national team in the upcoming 2011 FIBA Americas Tournament, the squad is training at the Wildcats' practice facility in Lexington. "I never expected this, I got to tell you," said Horford, who played his college ball at Florida. "I tweeted the other day that I was going to be here and I didn't get very warm comments on it. (Gator fans) didn't like that too much. It has nothing to do with that, though. I'm happy to be here and happy to train here."

CHARLOTTE — Danica Patrick could still run the Indianapolis 500 even if she makes a full-time move to NASCAR, The Associated Press has learned. Two people familiar with Patrick’s 2012 plans said she is in the final stages of a deal to run a full-time Nationwide Series schedule with JR Motorsports and limited Sprint Cup Series races with the team owned by two-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart. . The talks also include her continuing to run the Indianapolis 500. JR Motorsports co-owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. said last weekend he wants Patrick to run a full Nationwide schedule with his team. She has driven 19 Nationwide races for his team over the last two seasons and has six more scheduled starts this year. “I would like for her to run fulltime, and I’m sure she is considering that, and I think she would enjoy it,” Earnhardt said. “I feel confident that she’s content where she is and happy with what we’re doing. I think things are looking positive for us to put something together.”
They were joined by Philadelphia Flyers founder and current owner Ed Snider along with play-by-play announcer Mike Emrick. The formal induction will take place this fall.
GLENNON past two seasons, completing 33 of his 52 career passes in 10 career games for 326 total yards with two interceptions and one touchdown. Still, he showed enough flashes of promise that made him a highly recruited high school player. “I go deep,” said receiver — and best friend — T.J. Graham, “he throws it deep.” And after Wilson’s latest dalliances with pro baseball, N.C. State opted to put its future in Glennon’s untested hands. O’Brien said on Signing Day in February that he was prepared to move forward with Glennon, and during spring practice he solidified himself as the clear No. 1 quarterback while Wilson was across the state playing second base for the Colorado Rockies’ farm team in Asheville. N.C. State’s decision became final two weeks after the spring game when it released Wilson from his scholarship. After hitting .228 in 61 games in Asheville, he walked away from baseball for a while and opted to play his fi-

Boesch’s homer gives Tigers victory Associated Press DETROIT — Brennan Boesch hit a solo home run off Mike Adams amid an eighthinning rain shower, sending the Detroit Tigers to a 6-5 victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night. Adams (0-1) was making his debut for the Rangers after coming over from San Diego just before the trade deadline Sunday. He got the first out of the eighth, but as the rain began falling harder, Boesch lined his 16th homer of the season over the wall in right field. Jose Valverde pitched the ninth for Detroit, earning his 29th save in 29 chances. Joaquin Benoit (3-3) blew a 5-2 lead in the top of the eighth, allowing a solo homer to Nelson Cruz and a tying two-run shot by Mike Napoli. Alex Avila homered and drove in three runs for the Tigers. Red Sox 3, Indians 2 BOSTON — Pinch-runner Jarrod Saltalamacchia dived across home plate to score the winning run on Jacoby Ellsbury’s single in the ninth inning and the Boston Red Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 3-2 on a rainy Tuesday night. Jason Varitek singled with one out in the ninth against Vinnie Pestano (1-1) and Saltalamacchia ran for him. Josh Reddick followed with a single that sent Saltalamacchia to second. Ellsbury then singled, setting up the play at the plate. Center fielder Eziquiel Cabrera threw home and catcher Carlos Santana caught the ball wide of the plate, but Saltalamacchia won the race and scored. Blue Jays 3, Rays 1 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Ricky Romero and Jon Rauch combined on a three-hitter, Jose Bautista hit his 32nd homer and Toronto finally beat David Price. Romero (9-9), who didn’t allow a hit until Desmond Jennings started the sixth with
a homer, struck out seven and walked four over eight innings. Rauch allowed two-out singles in the ninth to Casey Kotchman and B.J. Upton before retiring Matt Joyce on a fly to left on a 3-0 pitch for his 10th save. Toronto, which is three games over .500 (56-53) for the first time since April 8, also got a homer from Yunel Escobar. Price (9-10), an AL All-Star who entered with eight wins and a no-decision in nine career starts against Toronto, gave up three runs and five hits in 6 2-3 inning. Orioles 8, Royals 2 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Mark Reynolds homered, doubled and drove in five runs as Baltimore beat the Royals in a game in which the temperature at first pitch was 107 degrees.
Reynolds hit his 24th home run in the ninth with Nick Markakis and Vladimir Guerrero aboard to break open a 5-2 game. Chris Davis also homered in the ninth off Royals rookie left-hander Everett Teaford, who was just recalled from Triple-A Omaha. Yankees 6, White Sox 0, 61/2 innings CHICAGO — Mark Teixeira set a major league record by homering from both sides of the plate for the 12th time and Phil Hughes pitched six innings to send New York to its fifth straight victory. Teixeira broke a tie with Eddie Murray and Chili Davis, who each homered 11 times from both sides in the same game. Hughes (2-3), who spent nearly two months on the disabled list this season, al-
Phillies blank Rockies, Ankiel big again
Associated Press ANAHEIM, Calif. — Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver will appeal the six-game suspension he drew Tuesday from Major League Baseball for throwing a pitch over the head of Detroit’s Alex Avila last weekend. Weaver also was fined an undisclosed amount by MLB senior vice president Joe Garagiola Jr. for the toss, which came right after the Tigers’ Carlos Guillen showboated on a home run. Angels manager Mike Scioscia was suspended one game because Weaver threw at Avila after both teams were warned Sunday by plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt. Scioscia sat out Tuesday night’s game against Minnesota. “I obviously knew that something was going to happen,” Weaver said. “It’s six games, and it is what it is, but I’ve decided to appeal it. I wanted my voice heard a little bit on the situation and how it went down, see what they feel about it and go from there. So we’ll see what happens.” Weaver will have his say during a hearing in New York during the middle of next week while the Angels are in town for a three-game set with the Yankees. Weaver is the AL ERA leader and is a two-time All-Star — in fact, Avila was his catcher in last month’s showcase game. The right-hander is 14-5 with a 1.88 ERA and among the league leaders with 142 strikeouts.

Associated Press DENVER — Kyle Kendrick tossed eight sparkling innings, Ryan Howard homered twice and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Colorado Rockies 5-0 on Tuesday night. Hunter Pence doubled twice and Shane Victorino and Raul Ibanez each singled and scored a run for the Phillies, who have won five straight. Kendrick (6-5) yielded four hits, struck out a career-high seven and walked two in his longest outing in 11 starts this season. He threw a career-high 117 pitches and didn’t allow a runner past second base. The Phillies got off to a fast start against Aaron Cook, who pitched four innings before leaving with muscle spasms in his neck. Jimmy Rollins led off the game with a walk and moved to third on Victorino’s single. Chase Utley drove in Rollins with a bouncer to shortstop and Victorino scored on Pence’s
two-out double. Philadelphia tacked on two more in the fourth. Howard led off with a drive to the facing of the second deck in right-center. One out later, Ibanez and Placido Polanco hit consecutive singles and Ibanez scored on Brian Schneider’s sacrifice fly to center. Nationals 9, Braves 3 WASHINGTON — The miscues and the losses are starting to pile up for Derek Lowe. The Atlanta right-hander gave up eight runs, including a grand slam to Rick Ankiel, in a 9-3 loss to the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night. Lowe (6-10) lost his third straight decision. He had not allowed so many runs since June 7, 2010. “If you make a lot of mistakes, you’re going to pay for it,” Lowe said. “I’ve been paying for it seems like every time out.” Lowe ran into trouble in the fourth inning as Ankiel’s grand slam capped a five-run burst that gave Washington a 6-3 lead.
Ian Desmond hit a two-run homer in the fifth that finished Lowe. “It’s been a tough stretch — long year,” Lowe said. “You’ve got to keep fighting, hopefully things will turn around. But it’s definitely one of my longer years in my career.” The Braves’ offense struggled to drive in runs once again, even as Dan Uggla (24 games) and Freddie Freeman (17) extended their hitting streaks. Those are the two longest current streaks in the majors. Cubs 11, Pirates 6 PITTSBURGH — The Chicago Cubs haven’t had much to celebrate during what has been a miserable season. They sure had a lot of fun Tuesday night. Alfonso Soriano hit two of the Cubs’ season-high six home runs and Chicago used a 21-hit attack to beat the fading Pittsburgh Pirates 11-6 Tuesday night. “It’s like we never really settled down,” Cubs right fielder Tyler Colvin said. “We kept hit-
ting and kept wanting to get hits and get at-bats and it was pretty exciting to be part of it.” Garrett Jones homered twice and drove in four runs and Brandon Wood also connected for the Pirates. Marlins 4, Mets 3 NEW YORK — The Florida Marlins have climbed back to .500, no small feat after a 1-19 free-fall in June sent them spiraling toward a low point of 11 games under. Rookie second baseman Justin Turner committed a crucial throwing error in the ninth inning, allowing the Marlins to score two runs and rally past the New York Mets 4-3 on Tuesday night. “We’ve given a few away like that one tonight. We’re appreciative to get it,” Florida manager Jack McKeon said. Omar Infante hit a pair of solo shots for Florida, giving him three homers this season, but star shortstop Hanley Ramirez left the game in pain after spraining his left shoulder

Trustee may, in the Trustee's sole discretion, delay the sale for up to one hour as provided in NCGS 45-21.23. Should the property be purchased by a third party, that party must pay the excise tax, as well as the court costs of Forty-Five Cents ($0.45) per One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) required by NCGS 7A-308(a)(1). The property to be offered pursuant to this notice of sale is being offered for sale, transfer and conveyance "AS IS, WHERE IS." Neither the Trustee nor the holder of the note secured by the deed of trust/security agreement, or both, being foreclosed, nor the officers, directors, attorneys, employees, agents or authorized representative of either the Trustee or the holder of the note make any representation or warranty relating to the title or any physical, environmental, health or safety conditions existing in, on, at or relating to the property being offered for sale, and any and all responsibilities or liabilities arising out of or in any way relating to any such condition expressly are disclaimed. Also, this property is being sold subject to all taxes, special assessments, and prior liens or encumbrances of record and any recorded releases. Said property is also being sold subject to applicable Federal and State laws. A cash deposit or cashier's check (no personal checks) of five percent (5%) of the purchase price, or seven hundred fifty dollars ($750.00), whichever is greater, will be required at the time of the sale. An order for possession of the property may be issued pursuant to G.S. 45-21.29 in favor of the purchaser and against the party or parties in possession by the clerk of superior court of the county in which the property is sold. Any person who occupies the property pursuant to a rental agreement entered into or renewed on or after October 1, 2007, may after receiving the notice of sale, terminate the rental agreement upon 10 days' written notice to the landlord. Upon termination of a rental agreement, the tenant is liable for rent due under the rental agreement prorated to the effective date of the termination. If the trustee is unable to convey title to this property for any reason, the sole remedy of the purchaser is the return of the deposit. Reasons of such inability to convey include, but are not limited to, the filing of a bankruptcy petition prior to the confirmation of the sale and reinstatement of the loan without the knowledge of the trustee. If the validity of the sale is challenged by any party, the trustee, in their sole discretion, if they believe the challenge to have merit, may request the court to declare the sale to be void and return the deposit. The purchaser will have no further remedy. THIS IS A COMMUNICATION FROM A DEBT COLLECTOR. THE PURPOSE OF THIS COMMUNICATION IS TO COLLECT A DEBT AND ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE, except as stated below in the instance of bankruptcy protection. IF YOU ARE UNDER THE PROTECTION OF THE BANKRUPTCY COURT OR HAVE BEEN DISCHARGED AS A RESULT OF A BANKRUPTCY PROCEEDING, THIS NOTICE IS GIVEN TO YOU PURSUANT TO STATUTORY REQUIREMENT AND FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES AND IS NOT INTENDED AS AN ATTEMPT TO COLLECT A DEBT OR AS AN ACT TO COLLECT, ASSESS, OR RECOVER ALL OR ANY PORTION OF THE DEBT FROM YOU PERSONALLY.

Arm pain may be result of pinched neck nerve Dear Dr. Gott: I have had a burning sensation in the upper part of my left arm for about five or six years. It came and went for a while, and sometimes months passed without it happening. Recently the sensation has worsened, and I experience it daily. I have noticed that the burning is similar to that of heartburn but hotter (I have had a lot of heartburn lately). The arm burning lasts only a second or two and feels as if DR. PETER someone has GOTT lit a match in my arm and quickly blown it out. I have also started to have a slight tingling in my left hand and fingers. I have been to two doctors for it, but they are at a loss as to what is causing it. Neither one referred me to a specialist. I have not had any injuries to my arm, shoulder or hand. I do have some arthritis pain in my hand and fingers. Other than vitamins, the only medicine I take is Xalatan for glaucoma. I had the burning long before I found out I had glaucoma. Aside from occasional hot flashes and the glaucoma, I am pretty healthy. I am a 51-year-old black female, premenopausal, 121 pounds and 5 feet 6 inches. Can you please help? Dear Reader: My first thought on reading your letter is nerve impingement, likely from your spine. The nerves of the spinal cord that run through the vertebrae of
your neck can often lead to arm tingling, burning and weakness. It can vary from mild to severe, and the sensations may come and go or become chronic. Typically as the impingement worsens, the pain or weakness worsens, and each episode lasts longer or becomes persistent. Over time, if left untreated, permanent damage may result. Another possibility is your Xalatan. Chest pain, angina, and muscle/joint and back pain are known side effects. Chest pain can often be confused with heartburn and can radiate to the arm. But I think this is unlikely in your case. Heart problems can also result in chest, arm and hand pain. This commonly occurs on the left side and can resemble a muscle ache or heartburn. If you have a strong family or personal history of heart trouble, particularly if combined with hypertension and/or high cholesterol, this may be a possibility. The most likely cause is coming from your neck or back. You already have arthritis in your hands, so you may also have it in your spine as well. Arthritis, aging, and/or degenerative changes to the spine can easily explain your symptoms. Return to your physician to discuss this possibility and request further testing, such as an X-ray, CT scan or MRI. Blood work should also be ordered if you haven’t had any recently. Depending on the results of your blood work and imaging tests, seeing a neurologist (nerve and brain specialist), orthopedist (bone and joint specialist) or cardi-
ologist (heart specialist) may be beneficial to determine the cause of you burning arm and to provide appropriate treatment.

Patience gives the right answer BY PHILLIP ALDER United Features Syndicate
Brian Adams, a Canadian rock musician, said: “Learn the art of patience. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.” That’s an excellent thought for bridge, especially on a deal like this one. How would you play in three no-trump after West leads the heart king? North and South have simple bids. Note that West, despite his great suit, is right to pass over one no-trump. To overcall with a one-suiter, one needs at least a six-bagger. Yes, here two hearts doubled costs only 300, but that does not make it a good bid. You start with eight top
tricks: three spades, one heart and four clubs. The ninth winner must come from diamonds. But should you play low to your jack or to your king? Perhaps you have heard about the Rule of Seven. When you have only one top trick in the suit your opponent
Storm damages Ohio oak from ‘Shawshank Redemption’ MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) — A large oak tree that played a key role near the end of “The Shawshank Redemption” was heavily damaged during a storm last week. The 1994 movie was filmed in and around the former Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield in north-central Ohio. The tree is where Morgan Freeman’s character finds money and a note left by Tim Robbins’ character. The tree was hit Friday by straight-line winds that split it down its rotted middle and
took out one side, Malabar Farm State Park manager Louis Andres told the News Journal of Mansfield (http://bit.ly/nMG68r ). The tree near the state park is popular with tourists and is part of the local convention and visitors bureau’s “Shawshank Trail” that also includes the former reformatory that closed in 1990 and is now a museum. The trail leads travelers to 12 sites where the movie was filmed. Lee Tasseff, president of the Mansfield-Richland Coun-
ty Convention and Visitors Bureau, called the damage to the tree “tragic.” “It’s a very sentimental part of the trail,” he said. Trail travelers can look to the left just past the state park entrance and see the site where Freeman’s character walked along a hayfield and removed stones from a rock wall where the money was buried. The movie was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including best actor for Freeman and best picture.
has led, you add the number of cards you have in the dummy and your hand in that suit. You subtract the total from seven and hold up your winner for that number of rounds. Here, the rule recommends taking the second heart. However, you need to know how the hearts are breaking. Hold up dummy's ace until the third round. Here, you learn that West began with five hearts. If he has the diamond ace as well, you are down. So play a diamond to your king. If the hearts prove to be 43, you have to guess diamonds to avoid losing three hearts and two diamonds — good luck!

Multiple areas of active weather will persist across the nation on Wednesday, while the South will continue to see hot a humid weather. A low pressure system will move out of the Upper Midwest into the Upper Great Lakes bringing heavy showers and thunderstorms. Heavy downpours, strong winds, and possible hail will be associated with these storms throughout the day. The rotation of this system will push a cold front extending from the Ohio Valley to the Southern Plains kicking up scattered showers and thunderstorms. This front will help cool temperatures from the Mid-Mississippi Valley to the Mid-Atlantic. In the South, high pressure spinning over the Gulf of Mexico will push moisture onshore triggering coastal showers for most of the Gulf states. Meanwhile, a ridge of high pressure positioned over the Southeast will contribute to hot and humid temperatures across the region and the Southern Plains. Temperatures will reach over 100 degrees, with heat indices reaching 120. To the west, monsoon moisture flowing into the Four Corners region, in combination with a surface low, will produce moderate to heavy rainfall extending into the Central Rockies. These storms will move slowly through the region causing the potential for flash flooding in some areas. Meanwhile, the West Coast will continue to see mostly sunny skies with morning fog and clouds on the coastline.
