Graduation rate jumps in Rowan-Salisbury schools BY SARAH CAMPBELL

The Rowan-Salisbury School System posted the biggest increase in its graduation rate this year since the reporting began in 2006, according to figures released Thursday. Of students who entered high school as freshmen in the 2006-07 school year, 73 percent earned their diplomas in four years or less, an increase of nearly 7 percentage points over last year’s graduation rate. “I am very pleased to see the overall significant increase in our graduation rate,” Superintendent

Dr. Judy Grissom said in a press release. “We have implemented many programs targeting our atrisk students to keep them in school and on track to graduate from high school with a diploma.” Grissom said graduation rates will continue to be a high priority as the school system develops and expands programs. Every high school within the district showed improvement in graduation rates. “Although I certainly am encouraged to see the graduation rate increasing, we will continue to climb toward our ultimate goal of graduating 100 percent of our students,” school board Chairman

Dr. Jim Emerson said in a press release. West Rowan boasts the district’s highest graduation rate of 2010 at 85.6 percent, while Salisbury High comes in at 62 percent, the lowest rate for traditional high schools. “I think the results of our graduation rates are evidence of the dedication and hard work of the West Rowan staff to make sure students are successful,” West Rowan principal Dr. Jamie Durant said. “There is a strong emphasis relayed from our staff to students on the importance of each student.”

31 of 35 schools meet or exceed goals Thirty-one out of 35 schools in the Rowan-Salisbury School System met or exceeded growth expectations, according to the 2009-10 ABCs of Public Education accountability report released Thursday by the N.C. Department of Public Instruction. “I am very proud of these results,” school board Chairman Dr. Jim Emerson said in a press release. “This indicates that there are hard-working people trying their best and succeeding in doing better.” The four schools that did not meet expected growth are Landis and Mount Ulla elementary schools, North Rowan High School and Rowan County Early


College. Seven schools in the district achieved the “School of Distinction” designation, which is awarded to schools that made at least expected growth and achieved at least 80 percent of performance composite. These schools include East Rowan, Jesse Carson and Salisbury high schools, Cleveland, Enochville, Faith and Millbridge elementary schools. South Rowan High School came within two-tenths of a percentage point of being designated a “School of Distinction.”

AIG students build, program robots during camp BY SARAH CAMPBELL

EGO robotics came to life at the hands of 28 academically and intellectually gifted (AIG) students this week. The third- through sixthgraders spent the week building fully-functional robots using LEGO NXT kits, which allowed them to program their creations to move in a variety of ways. “I like that this is a camp with technology, not just LEGOs,” Kevin Agner, a rising fourth-grader at Rockwell Elementary said. “You can actually make LEGOs do something.” AIG students from across the Rowan-Salisbury School System attended the


LEGO Robotics Camp at Horizons Unlimited from 8 a.m. to noon each day. The camp is the first of its kind designed specifically for AIG students. “We just thought it would be a really cool way to use higher order thinking skills, which is what we’re trying to promote with the gifted children,” Kelly Feimster, RSS’s AIG director, said. Gina Durham, RSS’s AIG lead teacher, said the students created a number of different robots throughout the week, including “battlebots” and “robogators.” “It’s just something to get their creative minds going,” she said. “A lot of


Brandon Privett, 10, and Spencer Gettys, 10, demonstrate how their ‘robogator’ works during the camp.

ENOCHVILLE — Authorities have charged the manager of the Dollar General store on Enochville Avenue with stealing the store’s bank deposit and setting a fire at a bank next door in an attempt to cover up the theft. J e f f r y Allen Thomas, 40, of 1115 Heatherdale Road, Salisbury, is charged with embezzlement and arson, both THOMAS felonies. A Rowan County Sheriff’s Office press release said Thomas also has “a prescription pill problem” and has been charged with several drug-related offenses. He was in the Rowan County jail Thursday under $110,000 bond. Authorities responded early on the morning of July 6 to investigate a fire at CommunityOne Bank at 100 S. Enochville Ave. Detectives determined someone set the fire in the bank’s night deposit area and the investigators asked federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents for assistance. “In the early stages of this investigation, it appeared the fire was an attempt by the suspect to destroy the contents of the night deposit safe,” the press release said. “The fire caused extensive damage to the bank, but the deposit safe’s content remained in-

District Court Judge Marshall Bickett says becoming a Superior Court judge would be “a natural progression” for someone who’s spent three decades in the courts. Bickett announced this week he will seek the Rowan County Superior Court seat being vacated by retiring Judge John Holshouser. Bickett was appointed to his current position as District Court judge in 2007 by Governor Michael Easley and elected to a four-year term in November 2008. “I am grateful every day to the citizens of Rowan County for the opportunity that they have given me to serve them,” he said. A Rowan native, Bickett

has more than three decades of experience in Rowan County’s court system. He began his career as the first full-time attorney for the Rowan County Department of Social Services. He then served as an assistant district attorney from 1980 until 1986, when BICKETT he went into private practice with Robert M. Davis. He later opened his own firm. “I’ve worked in the court system every day for the last 32 years,” he said. “If it’s not Today’s forecast 96º/71º Sun w/ strong thunderstorms

my home, it’s my home away from home. “Having worked there, I know everyone who works within the system. I’ve trained for every position that I’ll need to be a judge. It’s just a natural progression from where I’ve been.” Bickett said he’s excited to have the chance to run for Superior Court judge. “A superior court judge can contribute to a court system in thousands of ways,” he said. “I know what the law is, and all the nuances of it. I know what a Superior Court judge has to look for, and that’s something you can’t just learn walking into it fresh. I’m looking forward to having the chance to do that.”

Bickett lives in Salisbury with his wife, Terri, and is a graduate of Wake Forest Law School. He is a past president of the Rowan County Bar Association and of the 19C Judicial District Bar. Holshouser has said he will retire at the end of August. Judges are required to retire in the month they turn 72 years old. A special election will be held to replace him. U.S. Attorney Anna Mills Wagoner, of Salisbury, announced she will resign from her office today to run for Holshouser’s seat. Filing for the office ends Monday at 5 p.m. Candidates file at the N.C.

tact.” The bank’s security system was damaged by fire and water, but crime scene investigators recovered and repaired the video. Investigators also discovered a deposit was missing from the Dollar General store next door to the bank. Authorities then started investigating an embezzlement from Dollar General and determined Thomas had left the store with the deposit on July 3, the press release said. The deposit never made it to CommunityOne. “The bank was closed over the holiday weekend and due to open the morning of the fire,” the press release said. “This confirmed that the fire was the result of a suspect’s attempt to conceal another crime.” As they continued to investigate, detectives received information that Thomas had “a prescription pill problem and was reportedly involved in the illegal purchase of prescription medication,” the press release said. On Wednesday, investigators got a tip that Thomas would be meeting someone at the Food Lion in China Grove to buy prescription hydrocodone, according to the press release.

David Setzer, executive director, never knows when more money is going to arrive — but a personal check handwritten by Robertson appears in a FedEx envelope, no note included. Setzer characterizes Robertson as a hands-off boss. “We have to think he has approved of what we have done,” he says. Jim Hurley, chairman of the foundation’s board of directors, agrees. “He hasn’t turned us off yet,” he says. According to the July 5 issue of Fortune magazine, Robertson was a guest at a 2009 dinner hosted by Gates and Buffett, two of the world’s richest men. Other members of that inaugural dinner —

GOALS FROM 1a Nineteen schools received designation as a “School of Progress,” meaning they met expected growth and had a performance composite of at least 60 percent. Those schools include 12 elementary schools — Bostian, China Grove, Hanford Dole, Granite Quarry, Hurley, Knollwood, Koontz, Morgan, Overton, Rockwell, Shive and Woodleaf; five middle schools — China Grove, CorriherLipe, Erwin, Southeast and West Rowan; and two high schools — South Rowan and West Rowan high schools. Five schools in the district received a designation as “Priority Schools,” having a performance composite of less than 60 percent. Those schools are Isenberg and North Rowan elementary schools; Knox and North Rowan middle schools; and North Rowan High School. Three schools received “No Recognition.” Those schools are Landis and Mount Ulla elementary schools and Rowan County Early College. No schools were designated as “Low Performing.” “I am extremely pleased with this year’s results and very proud of our staff and students for their commitment in taking the necessary



steps so that our students can perform at higher levels — and our students are definitely making progress,” Superintendent Dr. Judy Grissom said in a press release. “I only hope that we can continue to keep this type of progress moving forward while our district faces the challenges of a dismal outlook in losing critical monetary resources that we must have in order to provide our staff and students with all the necessary tools needed to succeed.” Emerson said the school system is working to maintain a high level of education, while facing budget cuts. “We did more with less last year and we are going to keep moving forward,” he said. “However, there is a limit to how much less we can receive and still continue to make progress.” • • • Every school in the Kannapolis City Schools system met or exceeded expected growth. Each school has been designated a “School of Progress.” “These results are remarkable,” KSC Superintendent Dr. Pam Cain said in a press release. “The level of achievement reached by our students is outstanding and I’m extremely proud of our schools.” • • • The ABCs report is based

on several measures of performance. According to the NCDPI, these include reading and mathematics end-of-grade tests in grades three through eight; science end-of grade tests in grades five and eight; and end-of-course trests in Algebra I, Algebra II, Biology, Civics and Economics, English I, Geometry, Physical Science and U.S. History. Dropout rate, completion of certain courses of study and student performance on alternate assesments for certain students with disabilities are the other measures. The results show how schools perform under both state and federal accountability standards. The ABC accountability report began in the 1996-97 school year as the state’s primary school improvement program, providing the first school-level accountability program for kindergarten through eighth grade. High school performance was added for the 1997-98 school year, followed by the Adequate Yearly Progress measures in the 2002-03 school year as required by the No Child Left Behind federal law. Because of the state’s economic situation, no financial awards will be distributed in conjunction with the 2009-10 ABCs.

RATE FROM 1a Salisbury High’s principal Dr. Windsor Eagle said there are a number of factors that contribute to the school’s graduation rates. “We have quite a few students who come to us not proficient in reading and math,” he said. “We have to do a lot of remediation with those students.” Eagle said when students enter high school unprepared, a large amount of time is lost in an effort to try to catch them up. That means it could take students longer than four years to graduate. Henderson Independent, the district’s alternative school, has a graduation rate of 10.5 percent. Kathy McDuffie, the district’s director of secondary education, said the gradua-

tion rates at Henderson have dropped during the past two years because of an initiative to get students back to their home school. “Children have the opportunity as they get back on track to go back to their home high school and graduate.” McDuffie said students have embraced the new option and worked hard to graduate with their classmates. This year, Kannapolis’ A.L Brown’s graduation rate rose to 77 percent, a nearly 8 percentage point jump from 2009. “I am pleased with the progress made this year, but I am not satisfied,” A.L Brown principal Kevin Garay said. “We want to get it over 80 percent as soon as possible.” The statewide graduation rate is 74.2 percent.

PetSmart moving into old Circuit City location Pet supply chain PetSmart is renovating the former Circuit City store at Innes Street Market on Faith Road. The store will open in January 2011, not this summer as originally planned, a company spokeswoman said Thursday. Phoenix, Ariz.-based PetSmart announced in January it would open a Salisbury store, but the company didn’t say at the time exactly where it would be located. Circuit City closed last year when the company went bankrupt and liquidated its assets. PetSmart representative Jennifer Ericsson said the time it took to work out a lease agreement and obtain permits

forced the delay in getting the store up and running. A grand opening is slated for Jan. 22. “Until the lease is signed, the open dates can shift quite a bit,” she said. Ericsson said the store will be around 20,000 square feet and have between 30 and 40 full- and part-time employees. More information about hiring will come later, she said. Most employees tend to be “pet parents” themselves, she said. Ericsson said the sluggish economy did not play a role in the store not opening sooner. She said the company is opening a number of new stores this year, though exact fig-

Baldo named E. Spencer chief

ures weren’t available Thursday. There are currently 20 PetSmart stores within 75 miles of Salisbury, according to the company’s website. The closest are in Mooresville and Concord. Centro Properties Group, which owns Innes Street Market, signed a lease with PetSmart this week and has it listed on a site plan as occupying the space next to Staples. PetSmart offers thousands of pet products, grooming services and adoptions. The company partners with local animal-welfare groups and donates space to them to conduct adoptions, Ericsson said.

EAST SPENCER — The Town of East Spencer named Floyd Baldo as police chief Monday, making him the town’s fifth chief since 2005. Mayor John Cowan said Thursday that the East Spencer Town Board of Aldermen’s decision was unanimous. “I think they were pretty well-pleased with the job he was doing,” Cowan said. “He’s done an excellent job since he’s been here.” Baldo was named interim chief of the East Spencer Police Department after the former chief, Ron Hines, resigned on May 20. Hines had BALDO served as chief since October 2008. Cowan had said in June that once East Spencer found a new town administrator, that person would be in charge of selecting a permanent police chief. The interview process for that position could last another month. Cowan said the aldermen decided to name a chief now because “they needed strong leadership in the department.”

Man leads police on high-speed chase BY SHELLEY SMITH

A Salisbury man who police say led them on a high-speed chase early Tuesday now faces not only outstanding warrants from the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, but now a series of new charges from the Salisbury Police Department. Authorities are looking for Andrew Thomas Pruett, 30, of 615 Will Black Road. Salisbury Police Chief Rory Collins said Pruett was sitting in a Nissan minivan next to another vehicle in the parking lot of Country Cupboard on Statesville Boulevard when Salisbury PRUETT Police Officer E.A. Cole noticed Pruett and the driver of the other vehicle handing something off to one another. Cole followed Pruett, who he said seemed eager to get away quickly, through the parking lot of Marlow’s Bar-B-Q & Seafood, eventually stopping Pruett on Enon Church Road. Checking Pruett’s license, Cole discovered Pruett was wanted by the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office on felony charges of larceny and obtaining property by false pretenses, and he waited for backup to arrive. Cole and Salisbury Police Officer J.G. Thompson approached Pruett’s vehicle, asking him to turn off his vehicle several times.

the historic salisbury Criterium was delayed but started in a downpour of rain on Main street. The Historic Salisbury Criterium bicycle race returned to town Thursday in a downpour of rain that briefly delayed its start on Norh Main Street in front of the Rowan County Courthouse. Part of the Giordana Crossroads Classic, the Salis-

bury event is one of five criterium races that attract both professional and amateur competitors from around the nation. The races take place in Mocksville, Concord, Salisbury, Charlotte, Statesville and Harrisburg, and this year’s cyclists are

competing for more that $20,000 over the course of the Crossroads Classic. Rain continued throughout most of the Salisbury races and several cyclists took falls. Some were transported to the hospital for treatment.

CRIME ROUNDUP Thieves attempt to steal laundry detergent Two Lexington men visited Walmart on Arlington Street Tuesday afternoon for laundry detergent, but ended up checking out with felony charges. According to Salisbury Police, Brandon Tyler Owens, 17, and Peter Henry Callahan III, 19, teamed up to try to fool Walmart greeters. Salisbury Police Deputy Chief Steve Whitley said store security noticed the two acting very suspicious and decided to keep an eye on them. The two split up, with Callahan loading a buggy with $108 worth of Tide detergent, and then paying for the items and leaving. Whitley said Callahan then came back into the store and met up with Owens, who had a buggy loaded with five more bottles of Tide. Callahan handed off his receipt to Owens, and Owens attempted to exit the store through the garden center but was not successful. Whitley said the two were under surveillance the entire time they were in and out of the store. “These hoodlums assume the store greeter would see the receipt was for five bottles of Tide and not scrutinize the date-time stamp on the register,” Whitley said. “The amusing thing is they were under surveillance by the

store’s loss prevention agents.” Both Callahan and Owens were charged with a felony count of obtaining property by false pretenses. Callahan was given a $1,000 secured bond and Owens received a $1,500 secured bond. The Salisbury Police Department is investigating the following reports: • Tonya Johnson reported that someone took $600 worth of lawn furniture off the porch of her home at 309 W. 12th St. • Worrell Contracting reported an all terrain vehicle was stolen from the business at 202 Government Road. • Shoa Lor reported that a 2006 Suzuki 750 motorcycle was stolen from his open garage at 1802 Second St. The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the following reports: • Kannapolis business Wayne Brothers Inc., 195 Ervin Woods Drive, reported two mufflers worth $1,800 were stolen from two Chevrolet Silverado trucks. • Doris Holshouser File, who has a produce stand on the property of her home at 340 Scout Road, reported that $550 worth of produce was stolen from the stands, including cantaloupes and tomatoes. • Joel Huffman reported that someone broke into his vehicle overnight and took numerous items, including an $800 tiller and a $150 fold-

ing table. Items taken were valued at $1,485. • Virgil Misenheimer of Mount Hope Church Road reported that someone took a $4,000 Yamaha four-wheeler from his home and a $200 Echo weekender. • Jason Bober of Patterson Road reported a $1,500 utility trailer was taken from his residence. • Brandy Frazier Cain reported her home on Lower Palmer Road was broken into while she was away, and that more than $13,000 in personal property was taken from her home, including a $2,500 parrot who was 6 years old. • Franda Chilson Raymer reported that someone stole a black 1968 Ford from Heilig Road, worth $1,500.

Fight leads to charges An all-day drinking binge led to the arrest of a Rockwell man Wednesday afternoon after a fight that sent one man to the hospital. According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, Eric Goodrich Burton, 42, of 104 Orchard Road, had been drinking all day and had been persistent in trying to start a fight with East Spencer resident Paul Williams Collins. Collins, 53, was visiting with Burton’s landlord, who owns a garage on the prop-

erty where Burton lives. Authorities said witnesses saw Burton approach Collins several times before the fight began, and said Burton eventually ended up sitting on top of Collins, punching him repeatedly in the face with his fists. Collins was treated at Rowan Regional Medical Center for injuries to both eyes and was later released. Burton was charged with felony assault inflicting serious injury and given a $1,500 secured bond.

Police investigate Subway burglary Police are investigating a reported break-in and burglary of a Salisbury Subway shop. Salisbury Police Chief Rory Collins said the Subway at 914 E. Innes St. was reportedly broken into around 1:15 a.m. Monday, but no signs of forced entry were found. Collins said the front door — the only entrance to the restaurant — was open when police arrived. When a key-holding employee arrived to talk with police, a search of the store found money missing from the cash register and change dispenser, but neither showed signs of a forced opening. Anyone with information into this incident is asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333.

Open house this weekend at China Grove Roller Mill BY SHAVONNE POTTS

CHINA GROVE — The Historical Society of South Rowan is sponsoring an open house this weekend for the China Grove Roller Mill Museum featuring homemade quilts from members of Salisbury Rowan Quilter’s Guild. Operating the Roller Mill is one the society’s major projects. The open house is Sunday from 2-4 p.m. “In addition to this special

display, the museum will be open for self-guided or guided tours and refreshments,” said Carole Brooke, charter member of the Historical Society. The event is free to the public. Barbara Bruce, president of the Salisbury Rowan Quilter’s Guild, said those in attendance can expect a variety of quilts on display at the event. There will be a queen sized quilt, table runners and wall hangings, from traditional to modern, Bruce said.

Piedmont Women’s Healthcare opens

“It’s probably going to be a mixture,” she said. The Guild displayed items at the Roller Mill two years ago. “There will be four attending to talk about the pieces,” she said. The quilters will also demonstrate some hand quilting and needle turn applique, which is taking a piece of fabric, cutting it into shapes and turning under the edges before sewing it down by hand. “It’s another way of doing it so there’s no raw edge,”


Bruce said. The Salisbury Rowan Quilter’s Guild meets the third Thursday of the month at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center. This month’s meeting is a luncheon on Aug. 19. Bruce said visitors are always welcome at meetings. For more information about the Historical Society of South Rowan and the Roller Mill visit the website at Contact Shavonne Potts at 704-797-4253.

CHINA GROVE — Residents of southern Rowan County have a new option for women’s healthcare, Piedmont Women’s Healthcare South, which recently opened. The practice is affiliated with Novant Medical Group and is located at 307 E. Thom St. Drs. Martin Allen and Holly A. Stevens are excited to bring remarkable women’s healthcare to China Grove and the greater South Rowan area through Piedmont Women’s Healthcare South, a statement said. Dr. Martin Allen, who is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and Dr. Holly A. Stevens, also a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, are both board-certified in obstet-

rics and gynecology. Allen and Stevens will be joined by Barbara Evans, a certified nurse midwife. Piedmont Women’s Healthcare South offers obstetrical and gynecological services such as: management of menopause and osteoporosis, preconception and contraception counseling, individualized pregnancy planning, specialized care for high-risk pregnancies, abnormal pap, cervical and breast cancer screening, advanced laparoscopic procedures, treatment of PMS, endometriosis and endocrine problems, pelvic reconstructive surgery, urinary incontinence treatment and breast care. For more information about Piedmont Women’s Healthcare South, call 704855-7611.

Pruett kept asking “Why?” and eventually threw his car into drive, Collins said, taking off. The high-speed chase began on Enon Church Road and continued through the Woodleaf Road intersection. “That intersection is dangerous, and Pruett didn’t slow down at all,” Collins said. “He went straight across.” Enon Church Road turns into West Ridge Road, and around the 900 block, Collins said, Pruett turned and drove into a field. Collins said the field eventually turned into woods, and Pruett put on the brakes. As the officers approached the van to take

Pruett into custody, the officers realized he was gone. “They looked around, pulled back, did an inventory of the van and had it towed,” Collins said. “It was a tactfully wise decision — they were not familiar with the terrain, and it was dark.” Collins said the officers found ammunition in the van and seized it as a precaution, believing Pruett could have a gun. Pruett will now face several charges from the Salisbury Police Department, including failure to stop for blue lights and speeding to elude arrest. Authorities ask anyone with information about Pruett’s whereabouts to call the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333, or the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office at 704-216-8700.

Each donor was asked to write a pledge letter. In his letter, Robertson did not mention Salisbury by name, calling it “the little town in North Carolina where I grew up.” But he does mention both Catawba and Livingstone colleges. Robertson recalls his interest in medicine, education, spirituality and the environment. He details the Robertson Scholars Program at UNC and Duke University that he and his late wife Josie started in 2000. And he admits that he came to philanthropy late in life — but says it’s a good thing. “One very fortunate thing is that I did not get nearly as enthusiastic about philanthropy early on as I am now; if I had there would be very little to give away,” Robertson writes. “I didn’t know who would be on the list but I was delighted to see that he was,” Setzer says of his boss. “He has a record of charitable giving in

New York.” And in Salisbury. “To be able to do this is just amazing when you think about it,” Setzer says. “People are not forced into charitable giving.” Setzer knows that Robertson can be successful, no matter what type of financial market occurs. “That’s pure genius,” Setzer says with admiration. “He has an acumen for high-stakes investment that is extraordinary.” According to a July 21 article in the Wall Street Journal, Robertson is considering reopening his wildly successful Tiger Management Fund. He started Tiger in 1980 and closed it in 2000 amid losses. The article said that Tiger at its peak in the 1990s had investments of $22 billion in stocks, currencies and other holdings. Robertson’s two sons, Alex and Spencer, and sister Wyndham are all on the board of his local foundation. “Alex lets us give what we

need to,” Hurley says. “He pushes us to give.” The foundation is required to disburse at least 5 percent of its funds, but Hurley says the number has always been closer to 10 percent. “We can never give as much as we’d like to,” he says. Its spring grant cycle saw the foundation award $1.9 million in grants. The foundation is named in memory of Robertson’s parents, longtime residents and civic leaders of Salisbury. In his letter, Robertson writes fondly of his parents and their friends. “They wanted our schools to be the best they could be, and they worked hard to get them that way. They worked on our parks. They worked with the local hospital to make it the best.” Visit http://givingpledge. org to view the list of all 40 donors and read their letters.

N.C. scientists document oil-free coast’s condition

FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 2010 • 5A

S TAT E Carolina factory that makes some of Caterpillar Inc.’s smallest machines will expand operations, adding 325 jobs within four years. North Carolina on Thursday offered the Peoria, Ill.based heavy-equipment manufacturer up to $4 million in tax refunds and grants to expand its Sanford factory. The Caterpillar plant builds tightturning skid loaders widely used in landscaping and construction. In June, Lee County commissioners offered $900,000 in upfront spending for the corporate giant’s $25 million expansion. Last week, Caterpillar said it would build a new factory in Winston-Salem producing axle units for large mining equipment. City, county and state governments promised about $40 million to spur employment for about 500 fulltime and contract workers.

helped attract the largest number of annual visitors in its history. WRAL-TV reported that the Museum of Life and Science in Durham said Thursday that attendance increased by nearly a quarter from when the new Dinosaur Trail opened in July 2009 through this past June. Museum spokeswoman Taneka Bennett says nearly 85,000 more people visited the museum than in the same period a year earlier, bringing the total number of visitors to about 443,750. Bennett attributed the increase mostly to the popularity of the quarter-mile-long trail that features life-sized sculptures of dinosaurs from the Cretaceous period, which was approximately 75 million years ago. Bennett says families taking trips closer to home and holding more birthday parties and weddings also helped increase attendance.

OCEAN ISLE BEACH (AP) — Scientists are collecting samples of water, sand, fish and shellfish to show what the North Carolina coast looks like without the taint of oil or other pollutants. Scientists for the state and the University of North Carolina at Wilmington are working to document what lives in and around the unspoiled surf, preparing for a day when the samples may be needed to show the condition of the ecosystem before it was sullied, The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday. “Having that data in the bank,” North Carolina Sea Grant executive director Michael Voiland said, “is not a bad thing.” Sea Grant provided $6,000 for the scientific snapshots of shore conditions at six beach- Dinosaur Trail helps es from Ocean Isle north to increase N.C.

Some walked a 50-meter-long seine net into chest-high water, then slowly returned to the beach with scores of Florida pompano, striped mullet and gulf kingfish. Researchers will take tissue samples from the fish, analyze their oils and fats, and examine the contents of their stomachs. The fish will be tested for parasites. Some tissue samples will be frozen and archived. “We have a series of tests that tells us how happy and healthy these fish are,” marine biology professor Thomas Lankford said. Collected samples of sediment will be examined for the tiny algae that live in the water and sediment. “The microscopic algae is the base of the food chain,” said Lawrence Cahoon, a UNCW professor of biology and marine biology. “The fishes are here because this is the buffet line.” The Obama administration said this week there’s no longer a threat from the Gulf spill to the Atlantic coast, an assessment state officials agree with. “It’s beyond remote now,” said Kenneth Taylor, disaster response coordinator for the Evening Gowns, Party Dresses, Prom Gowns, state Department of EnvironSpecial Occasion Separates, Mother-Of-The-Bride, ment and Natural Resources.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate confirmed Elena Kagan Thursday as the Supreme Court’s 112th justice and the fourth woman in its history, granting a lifetime term to a lawyer and academic with a reputation for brilliance, a dry sense of humor and a liberal bent. The vote was 63-37 for President Barack Obama’s nominee to succeed retired Justice John Paul Stevens. KAGAN Five Republicans joined all but one Democrat and the Senate’s two independents to support Kagan. In a rarely practiced ritual reserved for the most historic votes, senators sat at their desks and stood to cast their votes with “ayes” and “nays.” Kagan watched the vote with her Justice Department colleagues in the solicitor general’s conference room, the White House said. Obama, traveling in Chicago, said her confirmation was an affirmation of her character and judicial temperament, and called the addition of another woman to the court a sign of progress for the country.

ugust abruptly arrived with some interesting cooler weather, but alas, has reverted to what is normally expected — heat and humidity.

Yellow nutsedge is a very difficult weed to control. The weed has more of a grass-like appearance, but it’s classified as sedge, not a grass. The blades are triangular shaped and grow very rapidly, especially in hot, humid weather. Hand weeding nutsedge is possible early in the season before rhizomes have formed. Unfortunately, the weed has already started producing rhizomes or “nuts” and “daughter” plants. Once this occurs, hand weeding usually results in breaking the stem below ground and a new plant emerges in a day or two. Spot spraying with a systemic herbicide such as glyphosate (Roundup) controls the newly

emerged nutsedge, but the sprouts below ground generally continue to emerge. Many landscape maintenance professionals prefer to use a post-emergence herbicide called Sedgehammer to control this weed. This herbicide controls emerged nutsedge and also leaves a residual herbicide layer, Nutsedge often shows up in flower beds or groupings preventing new of shrubbery. nutsedge from emerging for about four weeks. ly, some hand weeding in the early Those with nutsedge in flower spring cannot be ruled out as and shrub beds should also consid- method of control. er a preemergence treatment in For more information on the early spring. nutsedge control, follow this link to Pennant Magnum, a preemerHorticulture Information on the gence herbicide, will only supweb at press yellow nutsedge.

Friendship escalates to abuse

Dear Worried: It sounds as though your friend is locked into an abusive relationship with this other woman; please encourage her to leave this relationship, and also urge her to get help. Tell her you’re very worried about her. If you witness one person screaming profanities at another or are worried about your friend’s safety (and it sounds as if you are — or should be), you should call the police immediately. This is a dangerous situation that seems to be escalating. The National Domestic Violence Hotline offers very helpful advice for concerned friends and family members who are worried about or witnesses to an abusive relationship. Read through the website for guidance: The NDVH phone number is 800-799SAFE (7233); you can call and speak to a counselor. Also give this number to your friend, and encourage her to call.

Dear Inundated: Controlling this unwelcome attention starts at the first point of contact.

Dear Amy:Your response to “Working Mom� is correct in

that it’s ideal to have both parents available as many hours as possible for their children. I agree that mom’s and dad’s presence is the best present we can give our kids. However, you missed a viable option: Why doesn’t she look for a job closer to where he works, or wants to work (six hours away) and move there? It could be that he has a fulfilling career with a bright future. She should support him in his endeavors and dreams. Being happy at work carries over to being happy at home. If she really, really loved her job, then he should indeed sacrifice, but I didn’t hear that in her letter. So, unless there are other factors (grandparents in the area, good public schools, etc.) that preclude uprooting,

they should work together to find a solution that is best for everyone. Thanks for all the good work you do. — Marti in California Dear Marti: I agree that this mom should consider relocating, although, according to her, her husband has career options that could bring him close to, rather than farther away from, home.

Postal office Mission Accomplished II post mortem Will president change his tune about Iraq? he announcement that Salisbury’s downtown Post Office will close in a few weeks was unwelcome news, but it wasn’t unexpected. Amid the e-mail revolution and competition from private delivery services, the U.S. Postal Service is delivering abysmal financial results, and the West Innes Street office was among hundreds of smaller branches that had been designated for possible closure or may suffer that fate in future consolidations. A 2009 report from the Government Accountability Office outlined the predicament in stark terms. It said the Postal Service faces a substantial risk of failure — that’s bankruptcy, in business terms — unless it undertakes massive restructuring. The GAO’s suggestions included closing up to 700 branches — more than triple the number currently on the block — and cutting out Saturday delivery. There also will be more staff reductions on top of previous cuts that, in the past decade, have reduced the workforce from 800,000 to 630,000. Of course, it goes without saying that rates also will need to increase again by at least two cents ... and, no doubt, again after that. Yet, even as the Postal Service hemorrhages billions of dollars in red ink, such cost-cutting moves have been about as well received as a sack of junk circulars. Branch closings inevitably bring protests about the loss of convenience and the disappearance of yet another community anchor, like the corner grocery store and the neighborhood shoe-repair shop. The idea of dropping Saturday delivery has drawn a chorus of criticism, including denunciations in the U.S. Senate. And price increases are reviled as practically a stain on the memory of postal patriarch Ben Franklin. In short, we want the Postal Service to be a leaner, more efficient and, ideally, selffunding institution that combines the best elements of private enterprise and government oversight. But we only want that if it doesn’t come at the expense of disruptions in our own communities. And make no mistake — the closing of the downtown branch here, like similar closings from California to Connecticut, is a tear in the fabric of the city. Just like the disappearance of corner grocery stores and shoe repair shops, the vanishing neighborhood post office is part of a technological and societal shift in which more and more of our day-to-day transactions are de-personalized, digitalized and commodified. Yet times change, and businesses have to change with them — or perish. As much as we may lament the passing of the East Innes office and the slowerpaced, more cohesive community it symbolizes, the reality is that for postal patrons, this is primarily a matter of convenience. There’s another Post Office just down the street. Salisbury will survive. The question is, will the Post Office?


Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” — Winston Churchill

resident Obama claims to have kept his campaign promise to cease American combat operations (though not U.S. troop presence) in Iraq by the end of this month. But it’s not about his keeping promises about a war and an objective he never supported. It’s about whether the mission has CAL been a success. THOMAS And the answer to that question is: we don’t know yet. It will be fall at the earliest before a minimally functioning Iraqi government is formed. If the government and the country eventually collapse into chaos and terrorists overrun Iraq, effectively nullifying American and coalition efforts there, it will matter little about the president’s campaign promise. More important is our promise to the Iraqi people who yearn to breathe free. In a speech Aug. 2 to the Disabled American Veterans national convention in Atlanta, the president said that a “transitional force” of 50,000 troops would remain until the end of next year. Will this be enough to send Iraqis the message that they must get their act together and form a less than perfect union, but a union nevertheless? It could go either way, but if the Iraqis fail, the millstone of defeat will be around this president’s neck and not that of President George W. Bush whom Obama continues to blame for almost every problem. President Obama has been


wrong in his judgment about Iraq in the past and that should be kept in mind when judging his decision that now is the time to bring troops home. As a senator, Obama said on “Meet the Press” (Oct. 22, 2006): “Given the deteriorating situation, it is clear at this point that we cannot, through putting in more troops or maintaining the presence that we have, expect that somehow the situation is

going to improve, and we have to do something significant to break the pattern that we’ve been in right now.” President Bush did something significant. He ordered a troop surge in early 2007. In response to President Bush’s Jan. 10, 2007, speech on Iraq, Senator Obama declared: “I am not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in Iraq is going to solve the sectarian violence there. In fact, I think it will do the reverse. ... I think he is wrong, and I think the American people believe he is wrong.” In fact, Obama and many other congressional Democrats were similarly wrong about the war. Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid famously said the war was “lost” and

LETTERS Thanks, City Council, for veteran support Salisbury’s mayor and City Council need to be applauded for their support to help homeless veterans return as a useful part of society. Their decision to approve $150,000 in HOME funds over three years for the Liberty Square Transitional Housing project for homeless veterans is admirable to say the least. Each veteran has his or her own story as to what happened in life that led to being homeless. Some may have been combat veterans, some women veterans may have been abused, and still others who did not participate in combat could have gotten caught up in the fact they were a long way from home and missed their families to the point that substance abuse was their only way to survive. Whatever the reason, these veterans deserve a second chance before they become a victim of the highest rate of suicide the military has ever seen. Clearly, the council’s actions could save a veteran’s life. — Rodney Cress Salisbury

Another take on defending democracy After reading Cody Yasinsac’s Aug. 4 letter to the editor titled “Defending democracy,” I felt compelled to respond. He obviously isn’t paying any attention to what the Democrats are doing in Washington. First, it has been a Democrat-led House and Senate that have spent well over a trillion dollars to bail out the largest banks and unionized auto manufacturers (saving the UAW pensions). Senator Obama voted “yes” for the first and President Obama signed the second. He says “we need to fight the super-rich people.” But I am sure he doesn’t mean those who just this week shelled out $30,000 a head to the DNC to

attend President Obama’s 49th birthday party. I am sure they are all just average Joes who are struggling to make ends meet and not top corporate execs and union officials. I think Cody needs to get his hands on the donor list to see who is buying access to our Democrat president and other top Democrats. Everything he is complaining about what he believes the Republicans have done is currently being done like never before by the Democrats. I hate to be the one to burst this bubble but “the super-rich people and greedy, monopolistic corporations” are just as deep in the pockets of the Democrats as anyone else. — Hansel Bumgarner Salisbury

Sen. Joe Biden said the only solution to Iraq was to carve up the country into separate states. Now Biden credits, not President Bush, but himself and President Obama with “success.” This is political shoplifting. The public will judge the president’s judgment, not his ability to fulfill campaign promises. I suspect most Americans don’t want to lose another war and most certainly don’t want our soldiers to have died in vain. President Bush was clearly premature in claiming “Mission Accomplished” on May 1, 2003, when he stood on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln and declared the end of American combat operations. He corrected himself with the surge and if a completely stable Iraq has not yet been achieved, it is closer than ever. A premature pullout would undermine progress and possibly invite Iran and others to establish another terrorist base in the region. It surely would inspire legions of recruits into terrorist ranks. There is something else. President Obama could do wonders for reducing the polarization virus in Washington by crediting President Bush for the surge and making another promise; that the United States will not allow Iraq to devolve into chaos with a new set of terrorist dictators that will equal or surpass Saddam Hussein’s brutality. The alternative is too terrible to contemplate, for Iraq and for America. • • • Cal Thomas writes for Tribune Media Services.

oday, I quit being a Christian.” With those words last week on Facebook, Anne Rice delivered a wake-up call for organized religion. The question is whether it will be recognized as such. “I remain committed to Christ as always,” she wrote, “but not to being ‘Christian’ or to being part of Christianity. It’s simply impossible for me to ‘belong’ to this quarrelsome, hostile, LEONARD disputatious, PITTS and deservedly infamous group. For 10 years, I’ve tried. I’ve failed. I’m an outsider. My conscience will allow nothing else.” The author, famed for her vampire novels, made a much-publicized return to the Catholicism of her youth after years of calling herself an atheist. Now, years later, she says she hasn’t lost her faith, but she’s had it up to here with organized religion. “In the name of Christ,” she wrote, “I refuse to be antigay. I refuse to be anti-feminist. I refuse to be anti-artificial birth control. I refuse to be anti-Democrat. I refuse to be anti-secular humanism. I refuse to be anti-science. I refuse to be anti-life.” Rice is hardly the only one who feels as she does. According to a 2008 study by Trinity College, religiosity is trending down sharply in this country. The American Religious Identification Survey, the percentage who call themselves Christian has fallen by 10 since 1990 (from 86.2 percent to 76 percent) while the percentage of those who claim no religious affiliation has almost doubled (from 8.2 to 15) in the same span. Small wonder atheist manifestos are doing brisk business at bookstores. Organized religion, Christianity in particular, is on the decline, and it has no one to blame but itself: It traded moral authority for political power. To put that another way: The Christian Bible contains numerous exhortations to serve those who are wretched and poor, to anger slowly and forgive promptly, to walk through this life in humility and faith. The word “Republican” does not appear in the book. Not once. Yet somehow in the last 30 years, people of faith were hustled and hoodwinked into regarding the GOP platform as a lost gospel. Somehow, low taxes for the wealthy and deregulation of industry became the very message of Christ. Somehow, hostility to science, gays, Muslims and immigrants became the very meaning of faith. And somehow Christianity became — or at least, came to seem — a wholly owned subsidiary of the Republican Party. Consider that, after the election of 2004, a church in North Carolina made news for kicking out nine congregants because they committed the un-Christian act of ... voting for Democrat John Kerry. Who can blame people for saying, “If that’s faith, count me out.” Has atheism ever had a better salesman than Jerry Falwell, blaming the Sept. 11 attacks on the ACLU or Pat Robertson laying Haiti’s earthquake off on an ancient curse? But what of those who are not atheists? What of those who feel the blessed assurance that there is more to this existence than what we can see or empirically prove? What of those who seek a magnificent faith that commits and compels, and find churches offering only a shriveled faith that marginalizes and demeans? Its response to those people, those “seekers,” will determine the future of organized religion. And it might behoove keepers of the faith to keep in mind the distinction Anne Rice drew in her farewell: Christ didn’t fail her, she said. Christianity did. • • • Leonard Pitts is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Just another uncertain day in Favreville BY JIM SOUHAN Minneapolis Star Tribune

HATTIESBURG, Miss. — A Vince Lombardi quote adorns the statue at Brett Favre Field at Hancock High School in Favre’s hometown of Kiln, Miss. It reads: “The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It’s your mind you have to convince.” The statue may be in need of repair, because it no longer resembles Favre; it faces in one direction all the time. At 40, after eight summers of indecision and a week that has reminded fans just how wishy-washy and polarizing he can be, Favre is still trying to convince his

mind — or is it vice versa? — of a plan of action. Wednesday morning, before the Vikings quarterback hopped into his truck, said he has yet to decide whether he’ll play this season and drove away from a handful of reporters, he helped coach the football team at Oak Grove High School, on the western outskirts of Hattiesburg. Ronnie Sharpe, who lives near Favre, leaned against a chain-link fence in the swampy heat, studying the local hero. “I watched him at Southern Miss, that’s where I went to school, but I’m just like everyone else,” Sharpe said. “I’m a little frustrated. I wish he’d go ahead and make a decision. Don’t you?

“He has an entire fan base all over the country waiting. But I think he’ll play.” Sharpe and a few other fans showed up Wednesday after seeing reports that Favre was working with the team, but Favre’s presence otherwise seemed routine. Favre looked as unchanged as his statue. He wore his usual summer practice outfit — frayed camouflage hat, T-shirt, khaki shorts and cross-trainers. As practice ended, Favre strode off the field, veered away from the fence separating him from a few TV crews and ducked into a low building.

It’s hot, and so is Stewart

Sypher found guilty

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. — Tony Stewart seems to be right on schedule — it’s hot, and so is the driver known as Smoke. Stewart, who typically thrives in the heat of summer, has three straight top10 finishes, including a runner-up last week at Pocono, and sits a solid eighth in the NASCAR Sprint Cup points standings as the series heads to Watkins Glen International. Stewart might not be as hot as he has been in years past at this juncture of the season, but a strong finish at Watkins Glen is almost a lock. He’s won four of the past six races over the 11turn, 2.45-mile layout, finishing second the two times he didn’t win, and has a record five victories at the storied track in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. “I pinpoint this race,” Stewart said. “Every time you win here, it makes it that much easier to come back and be that much more excited about it. That’s something that I’m really proud of. It definitely gives me an advantage when we come here, at least in my mind. “I know how to win here. There’s no guarantee that it’s going to happen again this time around, but it definitely is one of the races on the schedule that we’ve got circled.” Stewart’s second year as an owner-driver has been solid but a bit off his impressive first year. In 2009, he

tony stewart has three straight top-10 finishes and stands eighth in the points standings. won four times and led the points standings by a wide margin after 26 races before Jimmie Johnson stormed back in the Chase to capture his fourth straight Cup title. “I guess it is easier, a little bit,” Stewart said. “Last year, being the first year, especially the first half of the season, there were a lot of question marks — what to do and how to do this and that. At least going to Daytona it was a lot calmer than it was last year. We just have that

experience after the first year. It doesn’t mean you know everything you need to know, but at least you have an idea where your program is.” Although Stewart has yet to win this year, he’s 189 points ahead of 13th-place Mark Martin in the standings, a comfortable cushion as the regular season winds down. Only five races remain before the 10-race Chase begins, with only the top 12 drivers qualifying.

WASHINGTON — On the eve of her practice debut as a female head coach of a high school team, Natalie Randolph put a black visor over her dreadlocks and got a close-up look at the big time on the sidelines Thursday at Washington Redskins training camp. Did the petite biology and environmental sciences teacher with the soft voice need tips on how to keep oversized men under control? Not at all. In fact, she’s already “cursed” at some of her players for breaking rules at a team building camp just a few days ago.

Randolph was as much interested in tips on how to deal with the nonstop attention she’s received since March 12, when she was put in charge of the Coolidge Colts at Coolidge Senior High School in Washington, D.C.. She is believed to be the nation’s only female head coach of a high school varsity football team. “When it comes down to it, I’m just a high school coach,” Randolph said. “So all of this is so foreign to me.” Randolph had hoped the fascination over her unique status would have died down by now, but she said it “hasn’t let up at all” and will only intensify when practice be-

leader Jeff Gordon, a fourtime winner at The Glen. Last August, Stewart led 34 laps of the 90-lap race, which was delayed a day because of rain, and held off Marcos Ambrose over the final 25 laps. Ambrose, still winless at the Cup level, is poised to complete that breakthrough triumph. The affable Aussie squandered a victory in the road race at Sonoma in June


Braves to retire No. 47

She’s ready to coach the boys BY JOSEPH WHITE

“We’re in a position right now where I can’t say we’re truly comfortable where we’re at, but as long as we don’t have a major catastrophe we should be OK,” Stewart said. “I wish you could tell me it (a win at Watkins Glen) was a guarantee versus an opportunity. But it is nice knowing that it is a place where, if nothing else, we can maintain.” Stewart has seven road course victories, just two behind all-time NASCAR

NATALIE RANDOLPH gins Friday. The school has tried to help her out with a blanket refusal for interview requests, but the doubts and the chatter about the new coach manifest themselves in other ways. “I think she can deal with it better than I can,” said


ATLANTA — The unflappable Tom Glavine said he’s not sure how he will react when he sees the Atlanta Braves retire his No. 47. Glavine was rarely rattled as the Braves’ 10-time AllStar and two-time Cy Young winner. “He was always calm,” said Eddie Perez, one of Glavine’s former catchers who is now the Braves’ bullpen coach. “He was always the same guy every day, every pitch. That’s what I admired about him.” Glavine’s even keel may be challenged Friday before the Braves’ game against the San Francisco Giants. “I don’t know exactly what to expect in terms of how I feel,” Glavine told The Associated Press on Wednesday. “This is not something I really anticipated or even dreamed about happening.” Glavine’s No. 47 will be

placed beside former teammate Greg Maddux’s No. 31 on the Turner Field facade in left field. Maddux’s num- GLAVINE ber was retired last year. Glavine is only the seventh Braves player to have his number retired, joining Maddux, Hank Aaron (44), Warren Spahn (21), Eddie Mathews (41), Dale Murphy (3) and Phil Niekro (35). Maddux, Glavine and John Smoltz combined to win seven Cy Youngs in the 1990s. Glavine’s awards came in 1991 and 1998. “He didn’t have the Smoltzie or Maddux-type stuff, but he was just as effective because he put three pitches right where he wanted to,” said third baseman Chipper Jones.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Kentucky woman was convicted Thursday of demanding millions of dollars from Rick Pitino to keep secret their one-night stand in a restaurant, then claiming the Louisville basketball coach raped her after he reported the extortion. Karen Cunagin Sypher, 50, o f Louisville, was found guilty of t h r e e counts of extortion, two counts SYPHER of lying to the FBI and one count of retaliating against a witness. She stared at the ceiling as the verdict was read, while one of her sons wept openly. The case involved a 2003 sexual encounter between Pitino and Sypher, a former model at car shows, at a table inside an Italian restaurant closed for the night. Pitino testified she came on to him and the sex was consensual. After she was charged, Sypher told police it was rape but Pitino was never charged. Last year, Pitino received three threatening phone calls and two letters demanding cash and gifts for Sypher to keep the tryst secret. One of the letters showed to the jury was a handwritten note from Sypher that asked for cars, tuition for her children and her mortgage to be paid off. Assistant U.S. Attorney John Kuhn called it a very difficult trial for the prosecutors, Pitino and the community. A University of Louisville spokesman said the coach was traveling and referred calls to Pitino attorney Steve Pence, who said the jury did the right thing. Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich said Pitino has been “100 percent truthful” and will not be disciplined. “We don’t view anything as a win,” Jurich said. “I think this has been a long 17 months. There’s probably been a lot of damage done.” Jury foreman Glen Elder told The Associated Press the panel went through the charges line by line and there were no disagreements during about five hours of deliberations over two days. Juror Charles Smith said there “was never a huge deadlock” and the tapes of the three extortion calls “were key, they played a major part” in their decision.

FAVRE FROM 1B He emerged from a back door minutes later, nodded to reporters crowded around his truck, offered a wry smile and said, “What’s goin’ on?” It’s a question that Favre, during one of the most mysterious weeks in a succession of mysterious summers, does not seem ready to answer himself. Instead of stopping in front of the cameras, Favre hopped into his white Ford F-250 pickup truck. He began to close the door. Then — you guessed it — he seemed to change his mind. A reporter asked him if he could ride back to Favre’s house in Favre’s truck. “I’m not going back there yet,” Favre said. “I’m going for a (bike) ride.” Was there anything he wanted to say, in the wake of reports that he had told some Minnesota Vikings teammates at training camp in Mankato, via text, that he was retiring and that the Vikings were prepared to offer him a raise if that would persuade him to return? “No,” he said, quietly, shaking his head. “No.” Favre started the engine, and, as shutters clicked, he was asked if the Vikings were aware of his intentions. “I talked to them,” he said. “They know.” How is his surgically repaired ankle feeling? “I haven’t made a decision yet,” he said. “So that tells you one thing.” If he’s healthy, will he play? “Oh, if I’m healthy, sure,” he said. How much longer is he willing to wait? “That is up for discussion,” he said. “But they know and we know.” Does his delay have anything to do with money? “No,” he said, shaking his head. “No. It has nothing to

do with money.” Send any texts? ’No’ Asked if he had sent text messages to teammates indicating he would retire, Favre said, “No.” Not to anyone? “No.” Told that Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe said that he did, Favre smiled and said, “That’s Shank ... that’s why I love him.” Then Favre closed his door and drove away, his mountain bike jouncing in the back of the truck. Favre threw a few passes early Wednesday morning but did not run with the team or don a weighted vest and sprint up the stadium stairs, as he sometimes does. Chris Chauvin watched the practice while pacing and puffing on a cigarette. His son, Christian, is an Oak Grove receiver. “I’m excited for us,” he said. “It’s an exciting time of the year to be playing football. Brett makes it exciting for us locals. We’ve got a superstar right here in our midst.” During Tuesday’s practice, Favre put his hand on Christian’s shoulder pads and offered advice. “I told him he should savor that moment, and remember it for the rest of his life,” Chauvin said. “We want the best for Brett, because he’s so good with our kids. He could be doing anything in the world right now, but he’s here with these kids.” The Oak Grove quarterbacks wore red pullover jerseys bearing No. 4, Favre’s number. “That,” Chauvin said, “is to honor Brett.” Chauvin did not seem bothered that Favre’s may be the only Hall of Fame bust that shrugs. Meanwhile an hour south, in Kiln, nothing much had changed. Dolly’s gas station and cafe, which commissioned a mural on the side wall of the station to honor Favre in January, still featured the phrase, “Where the

legend began.” A few hundred feet away at the biker/Favre bar the Broke Spoke, bras still hung from the ceiling, and the sign warning underage drinkers had lost its “2” and read: “No one under 1.” As a visitor entered on Wednesday night, the main TV featured a report on Favre, and the bar served as the dais for a debate on his health and decisiveness. “He’s worked too hard and done too much this offseason not to play,” said Derek Peterson, who was working the bar. “Depending, of course, on if the ankle is healthy.” Just then Tyler Larsen, wearing a purple Vikings Favre jersey, ordered a beer. For Larsen and many locals, Favre is part brother, part folk hero. “I grew up with him,” Larsen said. “My two older brothers played ball with him, his daddy coached me in high school and his sister graduated with me. I’m Scandinavian, I’m a Viking. This is all up to his ankle. He’s an ironman, toughest man I’ve ever seen play. “He came back to town after he was in the league a few years, and threw a pass to me. You know how they say that when he throws it, you can hear it humming? That’s a fact, Jack.” Favre fans farther removed from Hattiesburg have trouble ignoring the rattle and hum of a 24-hour news cycle. “I just hope it’s not about the money,” Sharpe said. “If it is, I’d lose a lot of respect for him. The crew that I talk to, they want him to play, but they just don’t understand why all this goes on, all this drama. “But there again, I’m a big fan. I don’t care how he gets there. I’d just like to see him get there.” Wednesday morning, Favre seemed intent only on a long bike ride, while his fans settled in for a longer wait.

Kotsay on fire for hot White Sox Associated Press

DETROIT — Mark Kotsay hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning, then lined a tworun triple in the 11th that sent the Chicago White Sox past the Detroit Tigers 6-4 Thursday. Detroit’s Ryan Raburn hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth off Bobby Jenks that made it 4-all. Sergio Santos (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings for his first major league win. Freddy Garcia pitched 62⁄3 strong innings for the AL Central leaders. Kotsay’s go-ahead triple came off Jose Valverde (1-3). Brent Lillibridge and Andruw Jones hit one-out singles in the 11th before Kotsay’s drive into the right-center field gap. Twins 8, Rays 6 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Jason Kubel’s two-out popup hit a catwalk high above Tropicana Field and fell near the pitcher’s mound for a go-ahead single in the ninth inning, a true dome run that sent Minnesota past Tampa Bay. The Rays scored six times in the eighth, capped by pinch-hitter Jason Barlett’s grand slam. Michael Cuddyer added a more conventional RBI single off Joaquin Benoit (0-1) later in the Twins’ ninth. Orioles 5, Angels 4 BALTIMORE — Cesar Izturis singled in the winning run in the ninth inning and the Orioles remained unbeaten under new manager Buck Showalter, defeating Los Angeles for a three-game sweep.

Phils benefit from blown call, win in 10th Associated Press

Santana, Youkilis are done BOSTON (AP) — Cleveland Indians catcher Carlos Santana is set to have surgery on his injured left knee and will miss the rest of the season. Santana was hurt Monday night in a home-plate collision with Boston’s Ryan Kalish. Santana will have surgery Friday to repair his lateral collateral ligament. The Indians say the recovery time is four to six months and that Santana is expected to be ready for the 2011 season. The 24-year-old Santana made his major league debut this season. He hit .260 with six home runs and 22 RBIs.  BOSTON (AP) — Boston Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis is scheduled to have season-ending surgery for a torn muscle in his right thumb on Friday in Cleveland. He left Monday night’s 6-5 loss to the Indians with the injury. “I think Youkilis was pretty resolved to the fact this was probably what was going to happen,” manager Terry Francona said before the finale of the four-game series with Cleveland. Batting cleanup for most of the season, Youkilis is hitting .307 with 19 homers and 62 RBIs. Francona said that Mike Lowell, who came off the disabled list when Youkilis went on it Tuesday, is expected to play at least four of the next five games at first base. Centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury returned to the lineup on Wednesday after recovering from broken ribs.

MIAMI — Carlos Ruiz homered leading off the 10th inning, and Philadelphia benefited from an umpire’s bad call to complete a three-game series sweep of Florida with a 5-4 victory Thursday night. A ruling by third base umpire Bob Davidson cost the Marlins a victory in the ninth. Gaby Sanchez pulled a grounder over third base for a hit that would have scored Hanley Ramirez from second base, but Davidson ruled the ball foul. Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez argued in vain, and replays showed ball landed inside the line behind the base. Ruiz, who had a two-run double in the sixth, broke the tie in the 10th with his fifth homer off Will Ohman (0-1). Brad Lidge worked the 10th for his 12th save. The Phillies scored twice in the ninth with no outs to tie the game, but they had three baserunners thrown out in the inning. Braves 3, Giants 2 ATLANTA — Eric Hinske

Five days after being acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers along with a minor leaguer for closer Octavio Dotel, McDonald (1-1) had eight strikeouts — as many as any Pirates starter had all season. He allowed four hits and a walk in his second start of the season and sixth of his career. Garrett Jones and Ronny Cedeno homered for Pittsburgh, which came in having lost six of its past seven. Troy Tulowitzki had the lone RBI and three of the Rockies’ seven hits — all singles. Colorado had won five of its past six since snapping an eightgame losing streak. Jones snapped an 0-for-20 stretch by leading off the second against Jeff Francis (4-4) with his team-leading 15th homer and third in three games against the Rockies.

Panthers’ Morrison is a hustler

Dumervil injured

Associated Press Associated Press

The NFL notebook ... ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Broncos coach Josh McDaniels says NFL sacks king Elvis Dumervil has an injury to the pectoral area of his chest and there is no timetable for his return. Dumervil was hurt at practice Wednesday night in a one-on-one passing drill and walked off the field clutching his right arm. The converted linebacker has torn his pectoral muscle and could be sidelined up to five months. REDSKINS ASHBURN, Va. — Even as the Washington Redskins ordered an MRI on Albert Haynesworth’s sore left knee, coach Mike Shanahan gave yet another reason why he’s adamant about having the two-time All-Pro defensive tackle pass the team’s conditioning test. Haynesworth, says the

coach, missed way too many practices last season. “I’ve got all the stats in there, how many games he played where he didn’t practice throughout the whole week,” Shanahan said. “If you don’t practice, you’re not going to play well. ... My job is to make sure he can play the best once we start our season, and that’s to get him in football shape. We’ll make sure when he is ready to go, he can go full speed.” TEXANS HOUSTON — Andre Johnson got the deal he wanted and says he’s committed to playing for the Houston Texans for his entire career. The All-Pro receiver signed a two-year extension on Thursday that will keep him in Houston through the 2016 season. GOODELL BEREA, Ohio — Shaun Rogers and Robaire Smith of the Cleveland Browns re-



main in limbo with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Goodell skirted the issue regarding suspensions to the two players on Thursday. • LATROBE, Pa. — NFL commissioner Roger Goodell likes everything Ben Roethlisberger is doing to reshape his life since being accused of sexual assault five months ago, but isn’t ready yet to cut the Steelers star’s suspension from six to four games. Goodell talked with the quarterback while visiting Pittsburgh’s training camp Thursday, saying he won’t make a final decision on how long Roethlisberger will be out until the end of the preseason.

The Panthers notebook ... SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Danny Morrison arrives at his office 7 a.m., speaks a luncheon in Charlotte, drives 90 minutes to Carolina’s training camp and runs the steps in the football stadium in near 100degree heat before heading to Panthers practice. The new team president was in near constant motion during Thursday’s workout on the campus of his alma mater, shaking hands with fans lined up along the fence, handing water bottles to guests of sponsors, asking questions of staff and seemingly oblivious to the heat. Coming up on a year since Morrison took a tough job — working for demanding owner Jerry Richardson and replacing Richardson’s son, Mark, whom his father fired — Morrison is becoming one of the most visible faces of the franchise. EDWARDS’ PROGRESS Special teams coach Jeff Rodgers is spending a lot of time with rookie Armanti Edwards, the former Appalachian State star quarterback who is being converted to a receiver and return man. “I think you start by having him catch the ball. Just firing balls at him and putting him in different situations,” Rodgers said.

“We watch a lot of tape and talk about situational football and with a guy who is just learning it you don’t want to assume he knows this and that. “The reality is when he was on the bench at App State he was probably getting coached up about the last drive. All the situational things as well as the ability to catch the ball.” Edwards has muffed several punts and kickoffs as he learns the position. The third-round pick said the first time he ever returned kicks was just before the draft. “Yes, he’s gotten a lot better,” Rodgers said. “Armanti has really good hands, excellent strong hands. It’s different (than catching a pass) and now I’ve got a guy buzzing by my head. “Those are all situations he has to become accustomed to. But he’s done a really good job and done what we’ve asked him to. We’re anxious to see him as we go forward.” EXTRA POINTS Rookie cornerback Robert McClain picked up another interception in what’s been a strong camp for the seventh-round pick from Connecticut. ... TE Jeff King made a one-handed touchdown grab of Matt Moore’s pass. ... The coaching staff sprinkled in several reserves to work with the starters at times. ... The Panthers practice twice on Friday at 9 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.

NCAA back on North Carolina campus in the conference.


CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina athletic director Dick Baddour says NCAA investigators have returned to campus this week. Baddour said investigators were in Chapel Hill on Wednesday and Thursday, though he would not reveal specifics of their visit. The NCAA is looking into whether defensive tackle Marvin Austin and receiver Greg Little received improper benefits from agents. Baddour says the school is participating in the investigation and that both the NCAA and North Carolina are “all working as quickly as we can to get it resolved.” The Tar Heels open training camp Friday. Austin and Little are expected to practice with the team but likely won’t talk to reporters.

ATLANTA — Atlanta Motor Speedway will host just one NASCAR Sprint Cup race in 2011. The track announced Thursday it will hold a 500-mile Cup race at the track on Labor Day weekend next year. It marks the first time since the track opened in 1960 that it will not host two Cup events in a season. The 1.5-mile quad-oval is owned by Speedway Motorsports Inc., which recently submitted several scheduling requests to NASCAR.



ANDERSON, Ind. — The Big Ten Conference has chosen Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis as the site for its first football championship game in 2011. Nebraska will join the conference in 2011, giving the conference 12 teams, the amount required by the NCAA to hold a championship game. The Lincoln, Neb., campus will be the farthest conference school from Indy, about 640 miles away. Purdue, about 65 miles away, would have one of the shortest drives

AKRON, Ohio — Bubba Watson sure didn’t look as though he was making his debut at Firestone. He opened with a 6-under 64 to build a two-shot lead after one round of the Bridgestone Invitational. Seven-time champion Tiger Woods looked as if he had never been here before. Woods got off to an atrocious start Thursday on his way to a 4-over 74, his highest round ever at Firestone. It also ended his streak of nine rounds at par or better on the tree-lined course.


ington native and University of Virginia track star played six seasons as a receiver for the D.C. Divas of the National Women’s Football Association, helping the team win the title in 2006, then was an assistant coach from 200608 at rival D.C. high school H.D. Woodson. Asked how she can lead a group with such a soft voice, Randolph turned to Young and said: “When I get upset, I’m not this soft. Am I, coach?” “No, you’re not,” Young replied. “Not at all.” “They were teasing me — I yelled at the kids this weekend,” Randolph said. Why did she yell at them? “They broke some rules at a camp,” she said. “Typical boys stuff and teenage stuff, but you can’t let it go. I cursed at them for a while.” “Shhh!” she added with a laugh, as if she wanted to keep her tough streak a

IRVINE, Calif. — Michael Phelps won the 200-meter freestyle at the U.S. national championships, then came back less than an hour later to win the 200 butterfly on Wednesday night. Phelps led all the way in the 200 free and touched in 1 minute, 45.61 seconds — fastest in the world this year — to earn a spot on the U.S. team for the Pan Pacific championships later this month.

AUSTIN, Texas — A former teammate of Lance Armstrong’s has reportedly told federal investigators that widespread use of performance-enhancing drugs on the U.S. Postal Service team was done with Armstrong’s knowledge and encouragement.




LOS ANGELES — Guard Shannon Brown will return to the Los Angeles Lakers for a shot at their third straight championship. The high-flying guard agreed to a two-year deal worth $4.6 million to return for his third season.

secret. Randolph said the perpetrators will be suspended or made to do extra work. She said her message to the team before the practice won’t be anything special, other than it’s time to put the jokes aside and focus on the job at hand. “We’ve got to get going,” she said. “And if you don’t — peace out.” Randolph was clearly a must-meet celebrity at the Redskins practice. While taking to reporters, owner Dan Snyder rode by on his golf cart and wished her luck. She also talked to general manager Bruce Allen and coach Mike Shanahan, who was asked how he would have reacted to a female coach when he was in high school. “We would have had a lot more guys go out for the football team,” Shanahan said, “if she was coaching.”

They’re not going to get stuck.” Gordon, Ambrose and Jeff Burton already have made laps with the new safety features in place, taking part in a Goodyear tire test in June. For Gordon, who hasn’t won at Watkins Glen since 2001, that might prove invaluable — if he races. His second child, a boy, is due any day, and Rolex Series driver Scott Pruett is standing by in case Gordon has to leave. “Any laps that you can make on a track that we race on is going to help you,” said Gordon, who still laments the mistake he made three years ago while leading with two laps remaining, handing Stewart a victory. “We have a lot of important data. That’s how we tune the cars a lot these days because we have such a limited amount of testing. That raw data is crucial.”

Coolidge defensive coordinator Shedrick Young, who accompanied Randolph to Redskins Park. “I go to certain bars or whatever and talk about it. They’re like, ’How could it blah, blah, blah,’ and I feel myself getting all tense so I have to leave.” Any concerns about a mass exodus of players from Coolidge were apparently unfounded. Randolph said only two players transferred — and one of them returned. Asked if she had to do a sales job on her players, she smiled and answered politely but firmly: “I’m not into sales.” It helps that she was already respected as a teacher at the school and had a solid football resume.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The national champion Duke Blue Devils will play Marquette and Kansas State will face Gonzaga in the semifinals of the CBE Classic.

Just because I like the golf course doesn’t mean I’m going to play well on it,” Woods said, who hit only five fairways and took 32 putts. “You still have to execute, and I didn’t do that. I did not execute the shots that I wanted to execute, didn’t shape the ball the way I wanted to shape it, and certainly did not putt well.”

Am I to blame for my son’s dyslexia and bad memory? I know my son and I are not alone. I could not get through this letter if it weren’t for spellcheck and the dictionary. Please, please dedicate a column to all the people out there who are going through this. Dear Reader: Dyslexia is an impairment of the brain’s ability to translate written images received from the eyes into understandable language. It is thought to be the most common learning disability in children and ordinarily presents in youngsters with normal intelligence and vision. Symptoms may be difficult to interpret before a child enters school. Prior to kindergarten, children may have difficulties rhyming words, and they may be late talkers. Once in a school atmosphere, they may have difficulties under-

standing what is being said, remembering sequential commands, may read at a level below what is expected for their age, and may see words or letters backward. For example, a “b” may look like a “d.” This can be common for children without the diagnosis. The difference is that once the child is in the second or third grade, this situation will not correct itself. Diagnosis may be made through psychological assessment, evaluation of educational skills, and visual and neurological testing. There is no cure for dyslexia, and the only treatment is remedial education. The earlier this begins, the better a child can cope and function with the disorder. Often, psychological testing is used to develop a

a trick; that king was dead anyway. But when East wins the trick, he returns his last spade, setting up West’s suit while he, West, still has the diamond ace as an entry.

er’s hand to the defenders. My policy these days is to use Stayman with minimum values for game and a low doubleton. With either honor-doubleton or extra values (so we have

at least 29 points between us), I just jump to three no-trump. South has seven top tricks: two spades, two hearts and three clubs. He must play on diamonds. And following the reliable rule that when you have two stoppers in the suit they lead and two high cards to dislodge, declarer ducks the first trick, wins the second with dummy’s spade ace, and calls for the diamond four. Now the spotlight turns to East. He must remember that when his partner’s suit is one lead from being established, he should try to win the next defensive trick. Here, East must throw his diamond king “to the wolves.” If declarer could take the king with his ace, East’s play will not have cost the defense

A slow stitch in time costs nine BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

An anonymous person said, “A stitch in time would have confused Einstein.” In today’s deal, if you spend your time stitching, not concentrating on the game, it will cost you nine -- the number of tricks declarer needs to make his contract. How can the defenders defeat three no-trump after West leads the spade queen? The drawback of Stayman is that if you do not find a 4-4 major-suit fit, you have given free information about declar-

custom teaching program that involves a multisensory approach. This includes using hearing, vision and touch to improve reading rather than simply using books and text. That said, your inability to remember things and your constant need to write notes to yourself is not a symptom of dyslexia, and I can’t be sure

that you even have the disorder. I urge both you and your son to undergo psychological and neurological testing to determine the cause of forgetfulness and learning difficulties. While dyslexia may be a part of your and your son’s difficulty, I am not convinced it is the entire problem. United FeatUre Syndicate

forget it. I have notes to myself all over the house, in my car, purse and everywhere else. I could never figure out how actresses could remember all those words and still include facial expressions while performing. I still don’t. At this age, I can work my life around being dyslexic, but the other day our son asked my husband and me, “Where do I get my bad memory from? I can’t remember anything and I forget almost everything I should remember.” I felt so bad. I do remember what a hard time he had studying, reading, spelling and writing. He has the same problem I have. I just don’t know how he made it through college. He’s 41, but I would really like to help him. Is the disorder inherited?


Dear Dr. Gott: This letter is a lifetime overdue. Six years ago, I turned 69. During that year, I had numerous medical problems that have nothing to do with this letter. However, I spent a lot of time in the hospital, which I used for thinking and reading. I realized I had DR. PETER been suffering GOTT from dyslexia all my life and didn’t know it. I just thought I was dumb. I have had a terrible time all my life with reading, spelling, studying and writing. I still must work very hard to remember something, only to
