From Russia with art Tatyana Shurtz paints murals, portraits, dreams

sarah campbell/SALiSbuRY poSt

tatyana Shurtz, a self-taught, traditional artist, works on a portrait in her home studio in Spencer. Shurtz, who moved to the united States 13 years ago from Russia, started oil painting in 2006. She said portraits are her favorite things to paint, but she also enjoys depicting scenes from her dreams. BY SARAH CAMPBELL scampbell@salisburypost.com

atyana Shurtz traded her pencils for paintbrushes nearly four years ago.

The 43-year-old Spencer resident ditched sketching for painting after receiving a set of oil paints, brushes and canvasses from her husband, Vern, as a Christmas present in 2006. “Since then I’ve been passionately in love with oils and have never looked back,” Shurtz said. “Painting is my way to express my love of life.” A self-taught traditional artist, Shurtz has no formal art training. She grew up in Saint Petersburg, Russia, where her mother and grandmother encouraged her to tap into her creativity at an early age. “Sketching was my hobby,” she said. “It totally channeled a different world.” Shurtz went on to receive training in technical engineering, but she never pursued a job in the field. Instead, she has become a jill-of-all-trades when it comes to freelancing. Not only does she do commissioned oil paintings, she also works as a graphic designer, face painter and muralist. Last year, Shurtz teamed up with fellow artist Marina Bare to create Mural Miracle, a company that specializes in murals. “Between the two of us, we can paint just about anything anybody would want,” Shurtz said. The pair lend their talents providing face painting during Nights Out in downtown Salisbury. “It’s still art,” Shurtz said. “Faces are just a different canvas.” Shurtz also partnered with her husband to create an application that can be purchased through Apple’s App Store. The couple spent about three months working on the children’s game “Adventures of Oboltus.” Submitted photo On a typical day, you might find Shurtz sanding, Shurtz painted ‘utopia’ from a dream she had.

The space is a painter’s paradise, with sunlight cascading through gigantic windows and no furniture in sight except a chair and an easel. Shurtz prefers to paint portraits and fantasy sequences, but is always looking for a challenge. When commissioned to do portraits, she uses her Nikon camera to take about 300 pictures of the subject. “It’s better for me to paint from my own pictures,” she said. “That way I get to know the person I’m painting.” While most people view sleep as a monotonous routine, a good night’s slumber oftentimes inspires Shurtz’s painting. “I have vivid dreams,” Shurtz said. “Many of my paintings are from those dreams.” ••• Submitted photo Contact Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683. ‘blue dream’ was painted from a scene in one of Shurtz’s dreams.

NC Legislature watchdog making mark after 3 years RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s Legislature was among the last in the country in 2007 to create its own watchdog team to scrutinize state programs and determine whether they’re running efficiently. The Program Evaluation Division is already making its mark. During this year’s eight-week session alone, the General Assembly approved and Gov. Beverly Perdue signed into law significant pieces of legislation on four topics examined by the division, including ABC reform, education, selling state aircraft and retooling state contract rules. “That’s a really good batting average,” Phil Leone, director of Virginia’s Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission, one of the 45 similar entities in other states. “When you have four areas like that, that’s quite an accomplishment.” North Carolina’s division has led a recent effort within the General Assembly to counter complaints there’s not enough digging in the budget and state government to decide whether the “way it’s always been done” still works. “I think we are gaining credibility and gaining some momentum,” said John Turcotte, the division’s director, who ran similar operations in Mississippi and Florida before coming to Raleigh. The 10-employee division is separate from the Legislature’s regular and larger nonpartisan staff whose main job is to help draft bills and perform research for potential legislation. The new division examines whether current government services are being delivered effectively and lawfully. The Legislature or the division’s 18-member bipartisan oversight committee decides what the division will examine. The division’s creation grew from a 2006 effort by lawmakers to begin the first state government performance audit in 15 years, but the project evolved into the approval of a permanent team that already has issued 24 reports on topics from mental health spending to underground fuel storage tanks. “There are no sacred cows here and let the chips fall where they may,” said Sen. Dan Clodfelter, D-Mecklenburg, an oversight panel co-chairman who likened the division to the U.S. Government Accountability Office. Some reports have generated no buzz, but a December 2008 evaluation of the state’s Alcoholic Beverage Control system laid the groundwork for one of this year’s successes. The report came out months before negative stories about salaries and dinners involving local ABC boards helped build support for ethics and operational reforms. State contract and purchasing rules also were retooled following examinations by both the division and State Auditor Beth Wood’s office. The Legislature also agreed all high school seniors wouldn’t be required to complete special projects to graduate after a division report determined there was no evidence their benefits were worth the projected $6.6 million cost to implement. Turcotte attributed this year’s effectiveness to an experienced staff, committed oversight committee leaders and bipartisan support of the committee’s work. “I’m very pleased that they’re there and hope they will come up with much more and

The photograph appeared in the September 1920 issue of the Southern Workman and came from Mrs. F.C. Williams, director of health and education for negroes. It features Dr. James E.K. Aggrey, a native of Ghana, who earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Livingstone College and his doctorate from Hood Theological Seminary. He served as pastor of Miller’s Chapel Church and as a faculty member of Livingstone College before returning in 1920 to Africa, where he influenced the course of post-Colonialism.

This year’s goal was qualifying for the AAU Nationals and to place in the top three in both events. His goal for the 1500 meters was to go five minutes or below, and for the 800 meters, his goal was 2.15 or less (national record is 2.19 but these were his goals!). Through the summer, we were at track meets most weekends and through the week, he was able to go swim and even made it to Carowinds a couple of times. The closer we got to the Nationals, the more intense the workouts became and the greater the sacrifices. An example: He asked if he could go to Carowinds the Wednesday before a huge competition at Duke University and a week and a couple of days away from the Nationals. Instead of telling him no, I asked him, “What is your goal for Duke, and what is your goal for Nationals?” He wanted to win both at Duke and place top three at Nationals.

I asked, “Can you do that if you go swim and play at Carowinds all day?” He replied, “No.” “Well, it is your choice if you want to go,” I said. He decided he wanted to keep his energy for the workouts (his words and yes a proud parent moment!) and decided not to go. He worked out very hard and my husband did a great job getting him ready for Nationals! He was seeded third in the 1500 meters and he was seeded eighth in the 800 meters when the performance list came out. Ranked in the top eight puts quite a bit of pressure on an athlete. But fortunately, like his mother, he performs well under pressure — something which is hard to “train” in an athlete. He placed second in the 1500 meters with a 4.59.06. His personal best before this day was a 5.04 (too fast for his mother!) The next day was the 800 meters. He got fourth with a personal best of 2.29.46. Mind you that third place was 2.29.40. Talent, hard work, sacrifices, “blood, sweat and tears” and a great coach (thank you Kevin) got him second- and fourth-place in the nation, two huge medals, new friends and lots of great memories.

SALISBURY POST

Co-worker soothes hurt of injustice his recollection comes from the workplace — not my established longterm workplaces, but from those short-term ones at the beginnings of my “work history.” It was the summer of 1973, and I was hired as a cashier at the Roses store at the old Rowan Mall. That Roses store was touted as MACK WILLIAMS one of the largest, if not the largest, stores of the Roses chain. I was put on a single register at the very front entrance of the store. I don’t recall the reason for that register’s singular placement, perhaps to catch some of the overflow from the other registers from deeper within the store. I would also assist at the counter that dealt with jewelry and watches, preferring watches, since I knew a little bit more about them. The gentleman who was my supervisor ( by using the word “gentleman,” I’m being a nice old man) had the last name “Williams.” His personality was such that if I hadn’t already been a Williams , I would have wanted to give up the name. But I figured he was from a different set of Williamses who evidently weren’t as well taught by their mother as my brother and I had been taught by ours. I was working the front register one evening when Mr. Williams told me to go immediately to the jewelry counter. I left immediately and headed in that direction, but he called me back, saying that I had not locked the cash drawer of my register, and so I was now “fired!” I confided this to an older lady by the name of “Ruth” who worked there and whom I had befriended. She was in charge of the department which dealt with sheets, curtains, etc., and had worked there for some time. She set up a meeting with the manager, my supervisor, herself and me. Mr. Williams had hired a good friend of his on the following day, revealing the true reason for my sudden dismissal with no warning. The manager said that what Mr. Williams did was not right, but that the new worker could not be let go to be replaced by me. He said they could give me a job in shipping, so I told them I would let them know. Not being very muscular (I remembered my old days during recess at Granite Quarry School), I had my doubts. Ruth said, “I wouldn’t even fool with them; they can do better than that !” So I didn’t “fool with them.” I told them “Thanks, but no!” I went to Kemp, my former manager at Ray’s Kingburger, who had always dealt fairly with me. He said they needed me and that I had always been reliable. Looking back, Ruth liked different kinds of music, as did I. She liked those old “101 Strings” records and liked to listen to Bill Gaither albums. She especially enjoyed a recording of the German composer Max Bruch’s First Violin Concerto in G Minor, which she had found at a yard sale. She let me borrow it to run off a copy onto a cassette tape. I was surprised when I saw it because it was recorded on 45 rpm records. But since it was not a very long piece, the entire recording necessitated only a couple of 45s. This was the first time I had seen classical music on 45s. I always remember Ruth saying that it was “the most beautiful music that I ever heard.” There were some people who made fun of Ruth, saying she was “simple-minded.” It was more of an emotional simplicity than an intellectual one. She was “simply” motivated by goodness to always do what she could to bring justice for a hurt.

Quilts take center stage at Roller Mill open house BY KARISSA MINN kminn@salisburypost.com

CHINA GROVE — About two dozen quilts of all shapes, sizes and colors lined the walls of a room at the China Grove Roller Mill Museum Sunday afternoon. The Historical Society of South Rowan, which operates the museum, sponsored an open house featuring homemade quilts from members of SalisburyRowan Quilters Guild. Historical Society Charter Member Carole Brooke, of China Grove, said she first invited the guild for a display about two years ago. “We had such great attendance that we wanted to do it again,” Brooke said. Barbara Bruce, president of the Salisbury Rowan Quilters Guild, said the display helps draw interest to quilting. “Residents look and wander in, and then people start making phone calls,” said Bruce, a Granite Quarry resident. She spoke to visitors about different types of quilt patterns and their distinct names. She also shared a little of the history of quilting. “It started as an art of recycling,” Bruce said. “People would use feed sacks, flour sacks, parts of clothes that had worn out and leftover fabric from making the clothes.” People still recycle fabric today, she said, but it’s more common for them to go to fabric stores and buy what they need for a quilt. There were about 30 vistors to the museum Sunday, Brooke said. One of them traveled all the way from Norway. Tor Strengehagen was visiting his fiancee, Salisbury resident Giny Wilson, who invited him to the museum. Wilson works with the Historical Society, so she has seen it many times. “I had to show him the mill, because he hears about it all the time from me,” Wilson said. Strengehagen said he liked finally seeing the museum’s historic collection. The mill was in operation from 1895 to 1995, processing wheat and corn into flour and corn meal. It now displays various historic equipment, photographs and memorabilia from China Grove. “It’s very nice,” he said. “It’s interesting that they take care of these old things.” They both said the quilt display was beautiful. “I love quilts,” Wilson said. “My grandmother

of the quilts on display except for one — an antique — were made by members of the Quilters Guild. During the open house,

Salisbury resident Linda Bryant demonstrated handquilting. Judy Firth, also of Salisbury, worked on needleturn applique.

Firth explained that applique is the process of layering fabric shapes to create a design. In some cases, the rough edges of the shapes are simply sewn to the fabric underneath. “But this way, you use the needle to turn it under (before sewing), so there are no raw edges,” she said. The Salisbury Rowan Quilters 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. Guild members work on projects together, share tips and tricks, demonstrate new techniques and invite guest speakers. “(The speakers) all have their own technique that they use,” Bruce said. “One woman uses neckties.” China Grove Roller Mill Museum also invites guests like the Quilters Guild once a month. It has featured artists, musicians and storytellers. The next event is a flutemaker exhibit Sept. 12 from 2-4 p.m.

Shoppers laden with school supplies grateful for tax-free weekend BY KARISSA MINN kminn@salisburypost.com

As North Carolina’s sales tax holiday wound down this weekend, local shoppers were still taking advantage of the lower cost. Back-to-school items ringing up without state or local taxes this weekend included clothing, shoes, school supplies, instructional materials, sports equipment, computers and computer supplies. Mark and Christie Russell, of Mocksville, went to Office Depot in Salisbury to look for a desktop computer for their daughter, Mollie. “We’re looking for something simple that meets the needs of an 8-year-old,” Christie said. “She can play on that one and it will free up a computer for us.” Christie said they had been looking at options for a while and decided to finally buy Sunday when the big purchase would be tax-free. Amy Lowe, of Salisbury, said she has shopped for clothes and school supplies all weekend. “We’ve been shopping since Friday at Walmart,

Penney, Belk and Kmart,” Lowe said. “I think we’ve got everything.” She said the only thing left to shop for was a bookbag for her 8-year-old son, Spencer. “He was looking for a particular one, and Target advertised it, but they didn’t have it,” Lowe said. Spencer did find the Nintendo-themed bookbag at Kmart, but he reconsidered after seeing the colorful rows of other options. “I think I’ll look at some of these, too,” he said. Salisbury resident Kelly Austin also took her son shopping for school supplies Sun-

day. At the Office Depot, she and 9-year-old William piled composition books, markers, sharpeners and a flash drive in a shopping basket. “We’ll use some leftovers from last year, too,” Austin said. Even though she didn’t buy much this weekend, she said she still appreciates the tax break. “It’s nice; it does help,” she said.

Catalyst for Louisiana Superdome dies at 87 NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Businessman Dave Dixon, who fought to bring an NFL team to New Orleans and was the catalyst behind construction of the Louisiana Superdome, died on Sunday. He was 87. Dixon had been ill since January, said his son, Frank Dixon, who confirmed his death. “He was always coming up with new thoughts and ideas. Until his dying day, he was thinking,” Frank Dixon said. Dixon persuaded New Orleans officials to pursue a football franchise rather than baseball in the 1960s. In his autobiography, “The Saints, The Superdome and the Scandal,” Dixon wrote there were strong reasons for the NFL to consider New Orleans, including its mild winter weather, a great football tradition and 80,000-seat Tulane Stadium. Dixon was a Tulane University graduate. Dixon, whose supporters for a team included Gov. John McKeithen and city restaurant owners, staged an NFL double header at Tulane Stadium, which drew a crowd that nearly filled the place. New Orleans was awarded the Saints on All-Saints Day 1966. Frank Dixon said his father recently told him how the timing of the announcement came about. He said NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle called his father the week before about the deal and his dad suggested they wait a week to announce it on that day. “Both Pete Roselle and my father were great marketers,” Frank Dixon said. “I wonder where New Orleans would be today if it didn’t have the Saints and Super-

I don’t think that ever would have happened if my father wouldn’t have been here.” Dixon started thinking about the stadium shortly after the city got the team. “I think as soon as Tulane agreed to let us use their stadium for an NFL team I started planning the Superdome,” he told The Associated Press in 2002. “I knew having 80,000 people in those neighborhoods 10 times a year was not going to work for long.” The Superdome opened on Aug. 3, 1975. But it wasn’t until last season that the Saints, a perennial loser, brought home a Super Bowl victory to the city that is still recovering from 2005’s Hurricane Katrina. Dixon was elated at the team’s 31-28 overtime victory over the Minnesota Vikings that sent the Saints to the Super Bowl. He was forced to watch the game on TV because of his health. “Oh, man,” he told AP the Monday after the win. “I feel like I’m in heaven. Just won-

derful. I had a little heart problem. But I feel much better. I’m very exhilarated over the Saints’ great victory.” New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson said in a statement that Dixon “was a distinguished civic leader with a unique vision and he was widely admired around our region as a leader who was dedicated to the development of the Louisiana Superdome.” Katrina ripped off part of the Superdome’s roof. It also failed miserably as a shelter of last resort when the devastating storm flooded the city. Thousands of people who had nowhere else to go flocked to the stadium. Within days, the building was tattered, filthy inside from mold, debris and raw sewage. Over the next year, the Superdome was rebuilt, and slowly, New Orleans has tried to get back to what it once was. The Saints’ success has played a role in helping the city by giving it something to celebrate. Dixon worked with Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt to found World Championship Tennis, Frank Dixon said. In 1965, Dave Dixon conceived the idea for the United States Football League, which operated from 1982 to 1985 before folding, his son said. “He believed in the brotherhood of man. He loved people and people loved him back,” Frank Dixon said Sunday. Dave Dixon is survived by his wife; his three sons, David Frank Dixon, John Shea Dixon and Martin Stuart Dixon and four grandchildren.

Forced to retire, some take Social Security early MIAMI (AP) — Paul Skidmore’s office is shuttered, his job gone, his 18-month job search fruitless and his unemployment benefits exhausted. So at 63, he plans to file this week for Social Security benefits, three years earlier than planned. “All I want to do is work,” said Skidmore, of Finksburg, Md., who was an insurance claims adjuster for 37 years before his company downsized and closed his office last year. “And nobody will hire me.” It is one of the most striking fallouts from the bad economy: Social Security is facing a rare shortfall this year as a wave of people like Skidmore opt to collect payments before their full retirement age. Adding to the strain on the trust are reduced tax collections sapped by the country’s historic unemployment — still at 9.5 percent. More people filed for Social Security in 2009 — 2.74 million — than any year in history, and there was a marked increase in the number receiving reduced benefits because they filed ahead of their full retirement age. The increase came as the full Social Security retirement age rose last year from 65 to 66. Nearly 72 percent of men who filed opted for early benefits in 2009, up from 58 percent the previous year. More women also filed — 74.7 percent in 2009 compared with 64.2 percent the previous year. Jason Fichtner, an associate commissioner at the Social Security Administration, said the weak economy has led more people who lost their jobs to retire early. However, it also has forced some people hard-hit by the recession and in need of a bigger paycheck to push back retirement and stay in the work force longer. “But we’re seeing more people taking early benefits than staying in the workforce longer,” Fichtner said. Like Skidmore, 63-year-old Jan Gissel of Tustin, Calif., also was forced into retirement early. She turned to unemployment benefits when her technical support business failed and filed for Social Security last September. Together, the checks are keeping her afloat. “I knew I had to have an income from somewhere, and my business wasn’t giving it to me,” she said. “I just went online and, boom, three weeks later I had the check.” Gissel wants to continue working but still hasn’t found a job. Although she didn’t expect to be cashing Social Security checks so soon, she’s grateful for the support it has provided. “I needed it way earlier than I thought,” she said.

Is Your Hypothyroid Medicine Really Working? For A Surprising Number Of People… The answer is NO!

Doctor reveals potentially helpful testing process and natural treatments that may help some people with an underactive thyroid stop suffering needlessly from low energy, chronic fatigue, weight gain and more… then tells how to find out if you are one of them Kannapolis, NC – If you’re one of the millions of Americans who have been diagnosed with an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), there’s a chance that conventional treatment may not be helping you. That’s because conventional treatments only look at ONE component of hypothyroidism (more on that below). So despite the fact that many patients are following doctor’s orders by eating better, exercising, trying to lose weight and taking their pills as prescribed… they still aren’t getting any better. In fact, some actually feel worse. They feel worse because despite all their hard work and diligence, their problem is still progressing. How is that possible? It’s possible because there are several components to testing for hypothyroidism but more often than not, only ONE component of the testing is done.

The Trouble With Diagnosing Hypothyroidism

You see, the most common test typically measures the amount of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) in your bloodstream. TSH is like a “light switch” that triggers your thyroid to make the hormones your body needs to regulate your metabolism. If your thyroid isn’t working, TSH in your bloodstream is like turning on a light switch when the bulb is burned out. So commonly when doctors see that you have a high TSH level, the common prescription is thyroid hormones like Synthroid (or the generic Levothyroxine) to replace what your thyroid isn’t producing. Once these build up in your system, your TSH levels go down, and your blood work goes back “normal”. But this approach sometimes doesn’t help people feel better… And yet, because the hormones lower the amount of TSH in your bloodstream, some patients are considered “treated.”

Unfortunately The Question… WHY Is The Thyroid Underactive? Often Goes Unanswered

As a result, some common underlying imbalances that may make the problem worse are overlooked. It could be other factors like adrenals, or sometimes the problem, isn’t a hormone imbalance. It can be an autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (Chronic Lymphocytic Thyroiditis). Patients who have Hashimoto’s develop low thyroid because their immune system attacks the thyroid and destroys its ability to function. So IF your low thyroid is caused by Hashimoto’s (and there’s a chance that it is) you may not get the results you need from thyroid hormone replacement you’re hoping for. But if you stop your own body from attacking your thyroid, you may finally get better. That’s why it’s absolutely critical to know… Symptoms often include depression, fatigue, weight gain, and even anxiety, insomnia, hair loss, muscle/joint aches and pains, among others.

If you are taking prescribed medicine to treat your low thyroid and it doesn’t seem to be working, there may be an additional solution.

How to Tell If Your Thyroid Treatment Is Working

If your thyroid treatment is working, you’ll feel better after a few weeks of treatment. You’ll have more energy. You’ll feel happier, and more optimistic. You’ll probably feel like you did 10 years ago! But if you don’t experience these results… even after your tests come back “normal”…even after your doctor raises your medication dose… then your treatment may not be working or may need some “extra” help..

What to Expect If Your Treatment Isn’t Working

Long time Kannapolis area health advocate Dr. Andrew R. Matthews, DC is talking about what patients can expect if their treatment isn’t working… “If you don’t treat the underlying nutritional deficiencies and imbalances – the patients can continue to get worse.” Do some patients NEED medications? Yes. Can many patients do things that could reduce or eliminate their medications and radically improve their quality of life? ABSOLUTELY. Which one are you? You’ll need a proper consultation and evaluation with an EXPERIENCED doctor to find that out. The point here is NOT to say that medications are not needed or inappropriate. The point is to say that there are simple strategies virtually every patient can utilize to radically improve their function and help their recovery. So if you’re tired of being rushed through your doctor appointments… if you’re tired of being told you’re fine because your tests are “normal”… and if you’re tired of treatments that aren’t making you feel better, … then it’s time to take your health into your own hands. If you don’t… You won’t lose any weight despite low calorie diets and intense exercise. You may pack on even more pounds as your disease progresses unchecked…

Your immune system will grow weaker. You can catch colds, flu and “bugs” that go

around much more easily and you’ll take longer to recover…

And you’ll continue to feel run down and fatigued. Some patients feel like life is passing them by and become depressed. Here’s the good news: If you qualify you may not have to suffer any longer. Instead, you just might be able to…

Regain All The Energy You’ve Lost… Shed All The Weight You’ve Gained… And Finally Reclaim Your Life

Your first step is to determine once and for all if your condition can be further helped. Understand that this is not an approach to take you off your medications or give you more, that’s your doctor’s job. Our job is to help you get your body healthier, be more vibrant, and improve quality of life. As part of this wellness series, we’ve arranged for you to have a FREE Thyroid Health & Wellness Consultation. The evaluation/consultations normally cost $247 and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Schedule your evaluation consultation now, before all appointments are booked. Call and ask for the consultation and don’t let your condition steal one more minute of your life.

If Not Now… When?

Since you’ve read this far, you must want to return to the vibrant, energetic, happy person you were before your thyroid problems. Having read this far, you finally know why your treatment hasn’t been working. And you know there’s hope for a solution. Why wouldn’t you schedule an evaluation consultation? If you don’t make the positive decision to finally do this one thing for yourself right now… when will you?

will reverse itself. But wait. There’s more. Investing in your debt pays you interest equal to the amount of interest you were paying on the debt. Really! Go back to the $1,000 debt you paid off in the previous example. If it was a credit card balance at 18 percent and you were making minimum payments, you were paying $15 in interest each month, or $180 annually. Once the debt is paid off, you no longer will pay that $180 in interest. You get to keep it. That is your 18 percent return on the $1,000 you invested in your debt. Do you know of any other investment that guarantees an 18 percent return? There are no minimum requirements to invest in your debt as there are to invest in other ways. If you have an extra dollar, you can apply it directly to your debt, increasing your net worth by $1. It makes so much sense to invest in your unsecured debt until it is paid completely. Then what? I suggest you start investing in your secured debts. Every benefit of investing in your unsecured debt holds true for your secured debt. Your “return on investment” will be less because mortgage interest is typically lower than interest charged on credit cards, but it is still an investment approach. Every dollar you invest in your mortgage puts you that much closer to owning your home free and clear. Once paid, it’s yours. No one can foreclose on it or take it from you, regardless of what happens to the economy or the stock market.

Which stocks or mutual funds are risk-free with a guaranteed rate of return?” That makes me laugh because not only is there no such thing but also someone thinks I am an investment adviser. I am not qualified to adMARY vise anyone on HUNT the stock market. My investment advice is more unconventional. Why do we have such a desire to invest? So we can read prospectuses and attend shareholder meetings? No. We want our money to grow. We want to build wealth. We want to increase our personal net worth. There are two ways you can do that. You can increase your assets or decrease your liabilities. Either will boost your net worth, dollar for dollar. There may be an easier way to grow your net worth than to plunge yourself into the stock market, where the risk could exceed your comfort level. Let’s say you receive a $1,000 bonus. With it you buy shares in a highly rated mutual fund. Your net worth increases by $1,000. Next month, when that hot investment takes a nose dive and drops by 50 percent (could happen), your net worth decreases by $500. But you have another choice. You can use that bonus to repay $1,000 of debt. Your net worth still increases by $1,000 because you reduced your liabilities without any risk. It’s a done deal. There is no chance this “investment”

“The Best Insulated”

Dear Amy: I received an invitation in the mail for a baby shower. I don’t know the guest of honor; I’ve never even heard her name. One of the individuals hosting the shower is my cousin’s wife. I don’t keep in touch with these cousins. I’m not so sure she would even recognize me if I passed her in the grocery store. I feel the only reason I was invited to this shower is because I’m on the family tree somewhere and they want a gift. Unlike a wedding (where a distant relative might be invited), I feel bridal and baby showers should be reserved for close family and friends. I didn’t even know how to RSVP that I wasn’t coming to the shower. What do you think? — Family Tree Dear Family: Your RSVP should say a version of, “Thank you for the invitation, but I will be unable to attend.”

Dear Amy: I live in a highrise apartment building, and on a couple of occasions female neighbors have suggested we exchange phone numbers. I didn’t want to pursue anything more than a casual “Hello” when we run into each other, but I was afraid I would hurt their feelings. It is easy to decline this overture when it is a man asking because I can say I have a boyfriend, but I just don’t know what to do in these cases. I gave them my number and am hoping they won’t call. Is there a polite and gentle way to decline when someone asks to exchange phone numbers and I don’t want to? What do you think I should

do?

Dear Bound: After you change the locks and hire someone to serve as a caretaker of the property, and after you repaint the item you never wanted painted in the first place and repair the damage these people inflicted in your absence, you should sit down and examine the statement they made to you about trust. You don’t trust them because they haven’t been trustworthy. Your neighbors left you wide open to theft, damage and the liability you might face if someone was injured on your property. This is an extreme violation of the agreement you made with them. Chalk this up to an error in judgment on both your parts. If they are able to acknowledge their violation, then you might be able to move on. Otherwise, unlike the material damage to your property, the damage to your relationship might be irreparable.

Dear Amy: My husband and I bought a vacation home in another part of the country. A local couple very generously offered to visit the house periodically (they live a mile away) and let us know if anything needs to be fixed. We paid the gentleman for necessary repairs. He’s very good at his craft. ASK We gave AMY them permission to hang out at the house to enjoy the view, and at one time we let them have their son stay there with his family overnight. It turns out that they have had at least one large party there. They set off lots of fireworks on our property. The man painted our fountain a color of his choice, even though it didn’t need to be painted and we didn’t approve the color. Throughout the past year, they invited additional family members to stay at our home without asking us, and some minor damage was incurred. We requested that they clear it with us first if they wanted to have anyone stay there in the future. We like this couple and want to keep them as friends, regardless of their actions. However, they say that since we don’t trust them, they’ve returned the keys to the house. They haven’t responded to a friendly message. What is the appropriate action to take at this point? — NM Bound

Popular ‘Star Search Comes to Mayberry’ returns BY ROD KERR For the Salisbury Post

The Star Search judges fell in love with all the folks in Mayberry. Even with all the distractions — Ernest T. Bass proclaiming his love for Charlene Darlin’, Mrs. Campbell bailing Otis out of jail (for the greater punishment of “house arrest�) and Barney losing, then finding, his harmonica — they couldn’t wait to get back. “Star Search Comes to Mayberry� will be back for a return engagement on Saturday, Aug. 14, at 7 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of First Baptist Church, Salisbury. “The Star Search judges loved the pork chop sandwiches, but never made it to

the homemade ice-cream contest. When they heard Mayberry was having its annual homemade ice-cream contest, nothing could stop them from coming back and judging that contest,� says, Joyce Curl, writer and director of the “talent show within a play.� “They just used that as an excuse to get to come back and enjoy all the folks in Mayberry because in some way — from pranks, rock throwing, pickin’ and grinnin’, fast fellowship and even boozing — each citizen in Mayberry is a winner.� The play kicked off a series of Wednesday evening Bible studies titled “Mayberry Revisited: The Gospel According to Andy.� Selected episodes of the popular television show were

used as parables to teach Biblical truths. The final session will use the famous “Kerosene Pickles� episode to discuss the challenge of “telling the truth in love.� The plot of the play revolves around a Hollywood talent scouting team coming to Mayberry to find local acts. Church members and some community friends star in the roles of the favorite Mayberry characters. First Baptist’s chairman of deacons, Tim Cooper and wife, Judy, will host the show as Andy Taylor and Helen Crump. Local attorney and guitarist Graham Carlton will be joined by Rodney Burns, Rick McGraw, Mark Parchment and Sharon Doby as the Darlin’ family. Lloyd Pace will resurrect his role as Ernest T. Bass.

Marie Waller will return as “the local girl who made good.� Retired coach Charles Hellard returns as “Gary Gossip.� Pete and Katie Bogle will add more laughs as Barney and Thelma Lou. New acts being added include soloist Patrick Hunter and Glory Bound, a gospel group featuring Dean Orbish, Josh Orbish, Justin Hall and Alex Yost. The church had calls from as far away as Scottsdale, Ariz., wanting to know about the play and information on the Bible studies. Several other churches in Rowan County and the surrounding counties are considering similar studies in the fall. Much of the attention is because of the 50th anniversary of the Andy Griffith Show

that premiered in October 1960. Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for children under 10 for the play and ice cream. Some of the proceeds will go to purchase school supplies for “Communities In

Schools.� Those attending are also encouraged to bring new school supplies for the drive. Call the church at 704-6330431 for information and ticket reservations. A limited number are still available.

Report: Agent promoted despite dubious confession RALEIGH (AP) — A newspaper’s investigation of questionable work by North Carolina police and the state crime lab shows that agents were rewarded despite making mistakes and doing slipshod work. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Sunday in the first of a planned series on the State Bureau of Investigation that agent Mark Isley had risen through the agency’s ranks the past 12 years despite his participation in the dubious confession of a mentally disabled man in a murder case. The paper said Isley supervises a team of more than a dozen agents investigating Medicaid fraud. Isley would not talk with the newspaper for its article, but his boss Robin Pendergraft said she has no evidence Isley acted improperly in the investigation of Floyd Brown that began in 1993 and ended 14 years later with charges being dismissed. Brown is suing Isley and the state over his arrest. Pendergraft was Isley’s boss when she was director of the SBI and now is again as she was recently named to head the Medicaid fraud investigations.

Pendergraft’s change of job was announced last month as an outside investigation into the SBI continues. The investigation was sparked by testimony from an agent that the SBI’s lab reports prepared for court didn’t always include information on follow-up tests that conflicted with earlier results. The testimony came in a hearing for Greg Taylor, a North Carolina man who served almost 17 years in prison for murder before being found innocent earlier this year. Concerns about the lab’s work led state Attorney General Roy Cooper to suspend its bloodstain work until issues can be resolved. In the Brown case, Isley maintained that the man gave a confession detailing the elements of the crime. But Brown spent years in a treatment facility for the mentally disabled and was never certified as competent to stand trial. His attorney said there was no way he dictated the elaborate narrative Isley presented. “The confession is a work of fiction,� said Mike Klinkosum, a Raleigh attorney who represented Brown until his release in 2007. “It’s that simple.�

A message left by the Associated Press at a number listed for a Mark Isley in Snow Camp was not immediately returned. In its report, the News & Observer also cited questionable work of another agent at the SBI, Dwight Ransome, who retired earlier this year with full benefits despite slipshod work that led to a record wrong-conviction settlement. He had been moved out of investigations following the $3.9 million settlement with a former death row inmate who was acquitted after a second trial in 2004. Cooper said the agency learned from Ransome’s mistakes in the case of Alan Gell, whose acquittal also led to a reprimand of prosecutors in the case. “It took (litigation) for people in the bureau to recognize some of the mistakes that were made by this particular agent,� Cooper said. Another case Ransome investigated is the subject of a lawsuit, but neither the SBI nor Ransome are named in it. The family of Stacey Pollard of Greenville is suing Pollard’s ex-wife in a wrongful death lawsuit. Ransome conducted the investigation into Pollard’s death and never

questioned Michelle Pollard’s changing statements about the day her husband died in the family’s swimming pool or about her assertion that the couple had a perfect marriage. In that case, Ransome never visited the crime scene, never examined the wife’s phone records and waited 18 months to talk to the couple’s neighbors, the newspaper reported. David Sutton, the Pollard family’s lawyer, quizzed Ransome about that during the civil lawsuit against Michelle Pollard: “Now, given that her husband had just been pulled dead from the pool a few minutes earlier, and she told you they had a perfect marriage, did this statement in any way cause you any concern or pause to think?� “No,� Ransome replied. “Why not?� Pollard asked. “Why would it?� Ransome said. The investigation was closed in January 2009 with no charges. The civil lawsuit against Michelle Pollard is continuing. Cooper declined to comment on the Pollard case. No phone listing could be found for Ransome to obtain comment.

NC schools to begin new sex ed programs this fall

LEXINGTON (AP) — Police have charged a 21-yearold North Carolina man with murder after investigators say a teenager was killed by a paving stone thrown through a car window. Multiple media outlets reported that Michael John Craver of Lexington was arrested Saturday morning and was being held in the Davidson County jail. A jail officer said Sunday that Craver did not have an attorney. His first court appearance is scheduled for today. Officials have not identified the 17-year-old girl who was killed because family members have not been notified. Investigators say both the girl and Craver were attending a party Friday night that spilled over into Saturday morning. The girl was sitting in the front passenger seat

had sexual contact. It will be up to a jury to decide what happened when Laurean goes on trial Tuesday in Goldsboro on first-degree murder and a litany of other charges. Lauterbach was from Ohio. Onslow County District Attorney Dewey Hudson has said the case is one of the most perplexing he’s seen in three decades as a prosecutor.

ASHEVILLE (AP) — North Carolina teachers are preparing for new sex education classes that will give students more information about contraceptives than in previous years. The Asheville CitizenTimes reported Sunday that the 2009 Healthy Youth Act requires schools to give students access to more information on sexually transmitted diseases and sexual assault as part of a revised sex-education program. The law marks a change from an abstinence-only policy previously used to guide schools’ sex ed classes. State Rep. Susan Fisher helped push through the legislation. The Buncombe Democrat says students will still be taught that abstinence is the best defense against sexually transmitted diseases, but they also will be taught how to protect themselves. The goal is to reduce teen pregnancy and boost graduation rates.

WATCHDOG FROM 1a bigger-ticket items,� House Minority Leader Paul Stam, RWake. In April, the division recommended eliminating 25 of the state’s 72 aircraft and closing five hangars, pointing out half the planes flew less than 100 hours a year. Lawmakers ordered at least 10 aircraft be sold and leases on two hangars ended, saving $1.5 million up front and $800,000 annually. But that’s still millions less than what the division said could have been saved. Then-State Bureau of Investigation Director Robin Pendergraft told the oversight committee the agency needed its twin-engine airplane to

C O N T I N U E D / N AT I O N transport prisoners and send agents out to crime scenes. The division issued a followup report with data showing the plane didn’t fly 84 percent of the time and was used twice as often for conference, training and meeting transportation as it was for escorting prisoners. Still, the SBI plane wasn’t eliminated in this year’s final budget. Criticism of the group’s work has largely come from those being scrutinized. “They’ll say whatever is necessary to get the parties to believe something, but we have to have evidence,� Turcotte said. Sen. Joe Sam Queen is the division’s strongest critic. He was first spurred by a 2008 report on agricultural research stations that recommended closing one in his hometown of Waynesville. He said the di-

vision’s reports have only led to more confusion among lawmakers. The Legislature would be better served evaluating agencies by using outside consultants, he said. “I think the division’s an embarrassment to the General Assembly,� said Queen, DHaywood, who offered a budget amendment last year to do away with the division. “I haven’t found a report that’s worth the paper it’s printed on.� Leone, from the division’s Virginia counterpart, said the work requires division leaders to have thick skin. The key to long-term success, he said, is to be fair and work with integrity: “The first two or three years of an organization, you have to build up trust with the Legislature that you can provide good results and savings.�

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Muslims trying to build houses of worship in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartland, far from the heated fight in New York over plans for a mosque near ground zero, are running into opponents even more hostile and aggressive. Foes of proposed mosques have deployed dogs to intimidate Muslims holding prayer services and spray painted â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not Welcomeâ&#x20AC;? on a construction sign, then later ripped it apart. The 13-story, $100 million Islamic center that could soon rise two blocks from the site of the Sept. 11 attacks would dwarf the proposals elsewhere, yet the smaller projects in local communities are stoking a sharper kind of fear and anger than has showed up in New York. In the Nashville suburb of Murfreesboro, opponents of a new Islamic center say they believe the mosque will be more than a place of prayer. They are afraid the 15-acre site that was once farmland will be turned into a terrorist training ground for Muslim militants bent on overthrowing the U.S. government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are not a religion. They are a political, militaristic group,â&#x20AC;? said Bob Shelton, a 76-year-old retiree who lives in the area. Shelton was among several hundred demonstrators recently who wore â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vote for Jesusâ&#x20AC;? T-shirts and carried signs that said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;No Sharia law for USA!,â&#x20AC;? referring to the Islamic code of law. Others took their opposition further, spray painting the sign announcing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Future site of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboroâ&#x20AC;? and tearing it up. In Temecula, Calif., opponents brought dogs to protest a proposed 25,000-square-foot mosque that would sit on four acres next to a Baptist church. Opponents worry it will turn the town into a haven for Islamic extremists, but mosque leaders say they are peaceful and just need more room to serve members. Islam is a growing faith in the U.S., though Muslims represent less than 1 percent of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population. Ten years ago, there were about 1,200 mosques nationwide. Now there are roughly 1,900, according to Ihsan Bagby, professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Kentucky and a researcher on surveys of American mosques. The growth involves Islamic centers expanding to accommodate more Muslims â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as is the case in New York, California and Tennessee â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as well as mosques cropping up in smaller, more isolated communities, Bagby said. A 2007 survey of Muslim Americans by the Pew Research Center found that 39 percent of adult Muslims living in the United States were immigrants who had come here since 1990. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In every religious community, one of the things that has happened over the course of immigration is that people get settled and eventually build something that says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here! Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just camping,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? said Diana Eck, a professor of Comparative Religion at the Harvard University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In part, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because those communities have put down roots in America and made this their home.â&#x20AC;? Before the demonstration in Murfreesboro, a fundraiser was held for the new community center. Children behind a folding table sold homemade wooden plaques, door hangers and small serving trays decorated with glitter and messages like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peace,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I

OPINION

The Monday forum

Waging peace in Afghanistan T

ALEIGH — Not too long ago, a writer for the conservative John Locke Foundation wrote that state Attorney General Roy Cooper had invested $7.7 million in a legal fight against the Tennessee Valley Authority “without much to show for it.” That conclusion followed a ruling by the 4th U.S.Circuit Court of Appeals that reversed a lower court decision requiring the TVA to speed up the installation of pollution control devices at four TVA coalSCOTT fired power plants. MOONEYHAM The lower court judge decided that TVA’s pollution-belching power plants posed a public nuisance as that air drifts eastward into North Carolina. The case included testimony by a medical expert who estimated that 100 fewer premature respiratory and heart-disease related deaths a year would result if pollution controls were put in place. A three-member panel of the appeals court wasn’t swayed. It ruled that a patchwork of clean air standards would prevail if the lower court decision stood. “In fact, emissions have been extensively regulated nationwide by the Clear Air Act for four decades,” Judge Harvey Wilkinson III wrote for the court. The conclusion that Cooper and the state of North Carolina have little to show for the legal fight ignores one basic fact — the fat lady hasn’t sung. Despite the unanimous opinion from the most conservative federal appellate court in the country, Cooper could appeal; the U.S. Supreme Court could hear the case. The state may yet win. Wilkinson and his colleagues on the 4th Circuit ignored that a patchwork of standards already prevails when it comes to the TVA.

Last year, a group called the Environmental Integrity Project released a report concluding that TVA dodges standards met by other utilities by using its status as a special federal corporation. The report said that TVA has invoked federal sovereign immunity to avoid environmental penalties and hasn’t faced the same pressure as other utilities to reduce pollution. Robert Dreher of Defenders of Wildlife wrote that TVA “should not be able to undermine the integrity of the legal process by claiming immunity to the enforcement of environmental laws. No corporation or agency should be above the law, especially at the expense of the environmental well-being of our citizens, wildlife and waters.” It’s not just environmentalists who have criticized the disparate treatment. Over a decade ago, the conservative Heritage Foundation wrote that TVA should be “subject to the same federal laws and oversight that (has) covered private utilities for decades.” Interestingly enough, TVA announced that it wouldn’t fight a recent $11.5 million fine imposed by the state of Tennessee for its massive Kingston coal-sludge spill. Publicity is a funny thing, isn’t it? But maybe North Carolina does lose its court fight. If so, TVA and the executives who run it are still under more scrutiny and face more public pressure that ever to clean up their act. If the lawsuit has helped create some of that public pressure, it’s still a win. • • • Scott Mooneyham writes about state government for Capital Press Association.

LETTERS

TO THE

Thanks for support, well-wishes for future “Thank you” isn’t nearly enough to express my appreciation for the loyalty and support that my patients, and the medical community of Rowan County, have shown me during my 30 years of practice in Salisbury. We were attracted by the wonderful people, the beautiful and dynamic community, and especially by my partners at Salisbury Clinic for Women, Doctors Green, Goodwin, Parada and Thurston. Six years ago I stopped delivering babies, and concentrated on practicing gynecology, developing advanced surgical techniques, and I have enjoyed working with an excellent medical family. Recently, Novant Medical Group downsized the practice, now known as Carolina Women’s Health Associates. Dr. Scott Stahle and I will no longer be able to serve our patients there, effective immediately. We sincerely regret the hardship and distress this has placed on so many of our patients. I deeply appreciate the support, friendship and loyalty that my patients and the entire medical community have shown me. The outpouring of love and well-wishes has been overwhelming, and, with the help of great medical friends, I am making every effort to resume my gynecology practice in a new setting, caring for my very special patients and friends. I look forward to serving you again very soon. Thank you all for everything. — Dr. B. David Hall Salisbury

What should ‘no kill’ philosophy mean?’ There is only one legitimate definition of a “no kill” animal shelter or community. It’s a community where: Healthy dogs and cats are saved; treatable dogs and cats are saved; and, healthy and treatable feral cats are saved. Some shelters call themselves no kill if they save all healthy dogs and cats. Saving all healthy dogs and cats is the first step toward achieving a no kill community, not the end goal. Can a shelter or community really justify killing animals with treatable conditions if it takes the title “no kill community”? It can-

not. Others claim that no kill is achieved when healthy, as well as sick and injured but treatable dogs and cats are saved. The definition is out of touch with the sentiment of millions of cat lovers who feed alley cats in their communities. If healthy feral cats are still being killed en masse, a No Kill community is not achieved. In short, neither of these positions is ethically defensible. The no kill movement’s break with traditional sheltering is less about saving “pet” dogs and cats and more about focusing on the individual animal. No kill is premised on — in fact demands — fundamental fairness to individual animals. Implicit within the No Kill philosophy is the understanding that some animals, such as those who are irremediably suffering or hopelessly ill, will be killed for reasons of mercy. That much we can all accept. We can also accept that dogs who are aggressive with a poor prognosis for rehabilitation are a public safety risk who cannot be adopted. But that is all we can accept. The only animals dying in a no kill community are dogs and cats who are irremediably suffering, are sick or injured with a poor or grave prognosis for rehabilitation and vicious dogs with a poor prognosis. Nothing short of that is acceptable. And nothing less will do. — Jeff Daniels Concord

Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be) “Get someone else to blow your horn and the sound will carry twice as far.” — Will Rogers

he World Cup explosions arrived not so long after a date of withdrawal was set for the war in the Middle East. Just as the problem seemed almost done with, we were once again reminded that terrorism hasn’t been completely solved by years of bombing and military occupation alone. And now, documents revealing our supposed “failures” are making some wonder: Is Congress really making a good decision in sending even more money into a seemingly irresolvable war? Death, fighting, and terrorists are all we seem to hear of Afghanistan. But is violence all there is in that beleaguered nation? In the years in which we put the area in our back seat, positive changes have actually taken place practically under our noses. According to author Greg Mortenson, head of the nonprofit Central Asia Institute and builder of schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan, in 2000, only 800,000 of Afghanistan’s impoverished children were in school; by 2009, 8.4 million were in attendance, roughly one-fourth of them girls. The country has also established a road-building project that was in 2009 about 60 percent complete. If that’s what can be accomplished by a combination of local individuals, some private non-Afghani support, and the country’s Megan Bean government in a time will be a freshman at Catawba when the country received little nonmilitary attenCollege this fall. tion, what would we achieve with just a little deliberate, concentrated effort? Perhaps we now need to think less about waging war and more about helping civilians. Service was our goal, after all — freeing innocent people from terror and oppression. Afghanistan is not made up of terrorists; it is mostly poor, village-dwelling or nomadic people who want nothing more than to give their children a better future. The real problem isn’t militancy or fundamentalism; it’s lack of opportunity, combined with a history of conflict with other, more powerful countries. When people have little access to education or decent living conditions, and little knowledge of the outside world beyond destructive waves of tanks and bombs destroying their land, homes and families, they are much more likely to tolerate, if not endorse, fellow countrymen who tell them they must either fight or resign themselves and their children to living in suppression. Part of the problem of terrorism — the part we can do something about — is pretty simple: not all parts of the world are equal in terms of geography and natural resources. When we realize this, we are better able to understand why tensions so easily develop between a rich, influential nation like the United States and poorer nations like Afghanistan — and what we can do to ease those tensions. Before we let the region’s associations with terrorism color our attitudes, and discouragement or indifference mark our actions, let’s consider that driving out terrorists is only part of the war on terror. If we want lasting security, we need to leave a legacy of peace and hope, not destruction. The region needs rescuing, but from helplessness and hopelessness, not just terror. If we help ensure that its people do not need to live without hope for a future, and if we build relationships with them to accomplish that goal, we will bring both parties more satisfaction than if we dropped a million bombs. You may point out that we can never solve both another nation’s problems and ours, but that isn’t the point. We don’t have to — given resources, they are willing and able to do things themselves. As individuals and a nation, we have the power to give them opportunity by offering assistance. We can’t stop them from hating us or transform their mountains and deserts into valleys, but we can treat them with respect, honor our promises to rebuild what we have destroyed, and ask input from the region’s true leaders — its common people. We can give humanitarian aid through missions and charities and honor Jesus’ command to “Love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:22) by showing compassion and concern through actions. We are called to act responsibly, doing what we can to promote peace and equality. More important than our perceptions of others is the image we give of ourselves. That doesn’t mean we have to abandon our military efforts. According to Associated Press reporter Kathy Gannon, the people of Kabul danced in the streets after we drove the Taliban from the city. However, we need to consider the common people — those who watch the bombs being dropped and whose lives will be left unchanged, if not worse — if we don’t do something more than simply fight terrorists and leave. We need to recognize our true enemy as apathy and ignorance, not some individual like Osama bin Laden. In doing so we can gain the respect, trust, and even friendship of people we once thought were our enemies.

Gulf shrimpers pray for good season

AssociAted Press

rev. Jervis Burns blesses fishing boats docked in Bayou delarge in theriot, La., during the pre-shrimp season tradition known as the ‘Blessing of the Boats,’ sunday. Louisiana fishermen can once again fish for shrimp when the season officially opens Aug. 16. for more than 50 years. “I have none now.” Fishermen have suffered through the ever-changing scenario of on-again, off-again closures and a murky future ever since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded April 20, killing 11 workers. BP said Sunday it may soon begin drilling the final 100 feet of a relief well.

Once the relief well intersects the broken well, more mud and cement will be pumped in for the “bottom kill” meant to seal the well for good. However, the plugging of the well hasn’t ended the uncertainty: Yes, the state technically set next Monday, Aug. 16 as the opening for a fall shrimp season along the coast,

Massacre victims gave years of service KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — One gave up a lucrative practice to give free dental care to children who had never seen a toothbrush. Others had devoted whole decades of their lives to helping the Afghan people through war and deprivation. The years of service ended in a hail of bullets in a remote valley of a land that members of the medical team had learned to love. The bodies of the 10 slain volunteers — six Americans, two Afghans, a German and a Briton — were flown Sunday back to Kabul by helicopter, even as friends and family bitterly rejected Taliban claims the group had tried to convert Afghans to Christianity. Also flown to the capital was the lone survivor of the attack, an Afghan driver who said he was spared because he was a Muslim and recited Islamic holy verses as he begged for his life. The International Assistance Mission, which organized the trip, said the driver had been a trusted employee with four years of service. Police said they don’t know if he is a witness or an accomplice in the killings, claimed by the Taliban.

Friends: Doctors weren’t proselytizing DENVER (AP) — Members of a medical team gunned down in Afghanistan brought some of the first toothbrushes and eyeglasses villagers had ever seen and spent no time talking about religion as they provided medical care, friends and aid organizations said Sunday. Dr. Thomas Grams, 51, quit his dental practice in Durango, Colo., four years ago to work full-time giving impoverished children free dental care in Nepal and Afghanistan, said Katy Shaw of Global Dental Relief, a Denver-based group that sends teams of dentists around the globe. He was killed Thursday, Shaw said, along with five other Americans, two Afghans, one German and a Briton. “The kids had never seen toothbrushes, and Tom brought thousands of them,” said Khris Nedam, head of the Kids 4 Afghan Kids in Livonia, Mich., which builds schools and wells in Afghanistan. “He trained them how to brush their teeth, and you should’ve seen the way they smiled after they learned to brush their teeth.” The team was attacked after a two-week mission in the remote Parun valley of Nuristan province, about 160 miles (260 kilometers) north of Kabul. Their bullet-riddled bodies were found Friday, and were returned to Kabul Sunday aboard helicopters. The families of the six Americans were formally no-

CEO Mark Hurd has settled allegations of sexual harassment lodged against him by a female contract worker for HP, a person with knowledge of the case told The Associated Press.

but some waters will likely remain closed as federal authorities test the safety of the seafood. “I got a boat that’s ready,” said Ravin Lacoste, 57. “But we don’t know what’s going to open up.” “It’s open, it’s closed, it’s open it’s closed,” said Charles Lovell Jr., before he clambered aboard his shrimp boat to ferry the Rev. Jervis Burns up and down the bayou. Burns first conducted a service for about 50 fishermen, their families and other parishioners of St. Andrews. The congregation gathered around him on the banks or watched from about a dozen shrimp and oyster boats, sheriff’s patrol boats and other vessels that sat across a twolane road from the church — a long, pitch-roofed white metal building nestled between two sprawling oaks, draped with Spanish moss. Then he climbed aboard Lovell’s shrimp boat to lead a water parade, during which he would bless other vessels docked along the bayou and then toss out a wreath memorializing fishermen who have died on the waters.

THERIOT, La. (AP) — Docked boats were bedecked with fluttering red, white and blue streamers and rainbows of balloons in a bayou-country, pre-shrimp season tradition known as the “Blessing of the Boats.” On the menu? Heaping trays of barbecued chicken, smoked sausage and potato salad — but no crabs or shrimp. Blame the BP oil spill. The company has plugged the leak and announced Sunday that cement sealing the busted oil well in the Gulf of Mexico had hardened, clearing the path for the final phase of drilling a relief well. The future isn’t so clear for fishermen and their families seeking blessings for a bountiful harvest and divine protection from the water’s dangers. They are wondering if the waters will ever be the same again. “I’ve had ice chests of shrimp in my freezer all my life,” said Dita Dehart, 70, a lifelong area resident who was working on desserts in a back room of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, which has hosted the blessing on Bayou Dularge

2 escapees from Ariz. prison, accomplice may be in Yellowstone ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The search for two men who escaped from a private Arizona prison and their suspected accomplice has turned to the vast Yellowstone National Park area after one of the inmates was linked to a double homicide in New Mexico and efforts to find them intensified. The U.S. Marshals Service said Sunday information developed within the past two days indicates Tracy Province, John McCluskey and Casslyn Welch may be hiding in portions of the park that span Montana and Wyoming. The agency also said investigators believe Province has separated from McCluskey and Welch. It doesn’t appear any of the three are expert campers or have wilderness survival skills, said Thomas Henman, supervisory deputy with the U.S. Marshals Service in Phoenix. “From the start, we believed these individuals would be staying at campgrounds and truck stops and other places like that.

Montoya finally wins BY JOHN KEKIS Associated Press

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. — Juan Pablo Montoya finally had a race without a mistake, and he proved invincible. The hard-driving Colombian erased 113 races of futility Sunday, winning a duel with Marcos Ambrose and the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International. “It’s about time,” Montoya said after celebrating with his crew in Victory Lane. “We’ve lost a lot of them, gave away a lot of them. It gets frustrating, everybody fighting. There’s so many things I have to learn. I still make a lot associated press of mistakes. It’s experience. We’ve just Juan pablo Montoya’s pit crew celebrates as he crosses the got to learn from it.” Frustration mounted when crew chief finish line at Watkins Glen for his first sprint cup victory.

Brian Pattie’s pit strategy backfired at the previous two races. A late four-tire call likely cost Montoya a win at the Brickyard 400, and he finished 16th a week ago at Pocono after starting second, another questionable pit call the culprit that led to harsh words over the radio. A prerace talk at Watkins Glen with team co-owner Chip Ganassi helped clear the air. Montoya went out, withstood repeated stalking and challenges from Ambrose and won going away. Montoya led 74 of 90 laps and beat Kurt Busch to the line by nearly 5 seconds for his second career victory, the other coming on NASCAR’s other road course at Sonoma in 2007, 113 races ago. Montoya gave Earnhardt Ganassi racing just its third victory of the season.

Ambrose was third, his third straight top-three finish at Watkins Glen, followed by AJ Allmendinger and pole-sitter Carl Edwards. Jamie McMurray, Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch, Jeff Burton and Jeff Gordon rounded out the top 10. It was the first career victory for Pattie, who fought back tears after watching the No. 42 take the checkered flag. “It’s huge,” Pattie said. “I still want to win on an oval. He wants to prove his point. The Brickyard was my fault. Hope this makes up for it. Trophies mean a lot. It’s pretty cool.” Montoya made the Chase for the Sprint Cup last year, made a strong run early in the 10-race postseason, and finished eighth in points. His chances of

Cowboys win an ugly one BY BARRY WILNER Associated Press

BY TOM SALADINO Associated Press

ATLANTA — David Ross made the Braves 6 most of a Giants 3 rare start Sunday. Ross hit a two-run homer and Derek Lowe pitched into the sixth inning before leaving with an injury, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 6-3 victory over the San Francisco Giants. The Braves have All-Star catcher Brian McCann, so Ross doesn’t play much. But he is hitting .284 with 20 RBIs in 37 games, 24 starts, this season. He also walked and scored Atlanta’s final run on Melky Cabrera’s single in the eighth. “I finally ran into one,” Ross said of his first homer of the season, a drive to left during Atlanta’s three-run second. “Guys were giving me a (hard time) so I got that off my chest, finally. I thought I was getting too old, that I didn’t have any pop anymore.” Lowe (11-9) was bothered by cramping in his hamstring. The right-hander allowed two runs and five hits in 51⁄3 innings. Lowe said he also had some cramps in his right arm in the fourth inning but he would not miss his next start. “The whole right leg was cramping,” he said. Four relievers combined to finish up, with Takashi Saito tossing a scoreless ninth for his first save of the season. Omar Infante hit a solo homer for Atlanta, which won three of four in the series and has won four of five overall. The NL East-leading Braves also improved their major league-best home record to 39-15 and maintained a twogame lead over Philadelphia, which beat the New York Mets 6-5. Jonathan Sanchez (8-7) pitched four innings for the Giants, yielding four runs and five hits. The left-hander was coming off a strong performance against Colorado, when he threw six effective innings in a 10-0 victory. The full-count pitch to Ross “was a sinker away,” Sanchez said. “He killed it. That’s baseball. You can’t expect to win all the games.” Infante made it 4-1 with a drive to left in the fourth for his third homer. Alex Gonzalez also drove in a run with a sacrifice fly and Melky Cabrera had an RBI single for Atlanta, which finished with 12 hits. Cabrera went 3 for 5. Juan Uribe hit an RBI double for the Giants, and Travis Ishikawa hit a homer.

the salisbury-rowan Hall of Fame inducted six new members in ceremonies held on sunday. seated is George c. Knox. standing behind Knox, left to right, are stephanie cross, Zelda ponder (accepting for her late husband, dr. Fred ponder), charles Hellard, Wendy Meyer-Goodwin (accepting for her late father, dutch Meyer) and shannon Myers.

Six inducted into Hall BY MIKE LONDON mlondon@salisburypost.com

George C. Knox hobbled gingerly to the podium, but once he reached his destination the World War II veteran’s voice was firm, his words profound. Knox’s athletic peak came in the late 1940s, nearly a half-century before the glory days of former North Rowan superstars Shannon Myers and Stephanie Cross, but he joins them as part of the Salisbury-Rowan Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2010. Also inducted in the 10th annual ceremonies held at the Civic Center on Sunday were coaching greats Charles Hellard, Dr. Frank “Dutch” Meyer and Dr. Fred Ponder. Knox is well-known as a black pioneer in Rowan education and politics,

but his baseball deeds came in an era without statistics and standings. Knox fashioned his own crude bats and balls as a youth and made his first athletic splash as a 14-year-old. Playing with Landis’ “big boys” for the first time, he hit a curveball for a ninth-inning grand slam at Cooleemee. “I was running hard until they told me to slow down,” Knox said. “I looked up and the ball’s going over the wall.” It not only went over the wall, it cleared a road and landed on a rooftop. Knox was expected to attend Livingstone after he graduated from Aggrey Memorial in Landis, but all Blue Bears were required to own a blue suit. While he was saving for that wardrobe addition, Pearl Harbor was bombed and the U.S. entered World War II. Knox was the “roughest man” in his

service unit. That meant he got to guard Jackie Robinson in basketball. Knox served with the 614th Tank Destroyer Battalion in numerous firefights in Europe. Most of his friends didn’t survive, but Knox returned to become a cleanup hitter for North Carolina A&T teams that won CIAA crowns in 1947 and 1948. Knox played against Willie Mays and Henry Aaron and was offered pro contracts. Instead, he began his teaching career at Kannapolis’ Carver High. Knox has accepted dozens of humanitarian awards, but Sunday’s enshrinement was the first acknowledgement of his athletic prowess since he entered the N.C. A&T Sports Hall of Fame in 1986.

CANTON, Ohio — Terrell Owens chatted amiably Cowboys 16 with his forBengals 7 mer Cowboys teammates. Chad Ochocinco wore gold shoes for his few plays. Otherwise, the Cincinnati Bengals barely were noticeable Sunday night as Dallas won 16-7 in the Hall of Fame game. In a game that might have made Class of 2010 inductees Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice wince, the offenses generally sputtered and there were eight sacks. Neither team could get going with the ball in a sloppy affair. Clearly, none of the aura of the NFL’s career leaders in rushing and receiving rubbed off. At least some of Saturday’s other inductees — the ones who played defense, Dick LeBeau, John Randle and Rickey Jackson — could appreciate the lack of scoring and the takeaways. Dallas picked off three passes and recovered a fumble; Cincinnati also recovered a fumble. Nobody could be impressed by the slew of penalties, 16 overall, 12 by Cincinnati for 90 yards. Then again, it was the preseason opener. The Cowboys hope this is the opening step, small as it was, toward becoming the first team to play in a Super Bowl in its home stadium. That goal will take months before it can be achieved, of course, and the most memorable item this weekend for them will remain Smith’s entry into the Hall of Fame. “Having Emmitt inducted into the Hall of Fame is special,” All-Pro linebacker DeMarcus Ware said.

The buzz about Tebow Shear genius? Broncos’ veterans shave rookie’s locks BY PAT GRAHAM Associated Press

DENVER — Tim Tebow was all the buzz Saturday night at the Denver Broncos’ practice. The rookie quarterback stood out not only for his play at practice but for his shaved locks, the top of his head completely sheared to leave a ring of hair that made him look like a monk. The pranks the veterans will play. Tebow and the other rookies had their heads decorated with wacky haircuts before the workout and they had to show them off during warm-ups when they couldn’t hide underneath their helmets. associated press “I think all the rookies had a good time with denver Broncos gave rookie quarterback tim tebow a new it,” Tebow said. “It was something to give haircut on saturday. everybody a laugh, something also to build

chemistry.” Tebow wasn’t the only one to get a bad haircut. Receiver Eric Decker was outfitted with lines carved into his ’do and left guard Zane Beadles sported a reverse Mohawk. Offensive lineman Eric Olsen was able to save his long, flowing dirty blond locks in the back, but he’s now bald on top, and tight end Nathan Overbay had half a haircut, his left side sheared and his right side left alone. Tebow’s new look was hard to miss, especially with his thick facial hair. When his image was shown on the big screen at Invesco Field before practice, the crowd broke into laughter. He said linebacker Wesley Woodyard was the barber responsible for his cut, taking out some of his college frustrations with the ra-

McLeod wins event From staff reports

Payne McLeod of Reidsville holed a 7-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to win the inaugural North Carolina Amateur Championship 1-up over reigning North Carolina Amateur (stroke play) champion Ryan Heisey of Greensboro. The event was contested at the Country Club of Salisbury. The finalists combined for 13 birdies and an eagle in their sizzling championship match. McLeod was 7under, while Payne finished 6-under. After both golfers bogeyed the No. 2 hole, Payne started a barrage that included three straight birdies on 3, 4 and 5. Heisey answered with birdies on 13, 14, 15, and 16. McLeod, 19, was mentored by Pat Foy Brady of Reidsville, who won the first CGA North Carolina Amateur Stroke Play Championship in 1961.

 Intimidators split The Kannapolis Intimidators split a doubleheader with Hagerstown on Sunday, winning 5-4 before losing 94 in the nightcap. The win in the opener briefly gave Kannapolis its first five-game winning streak of the season. Kannapolis put together a five-run second inning in the opener. Brady Shoemaker’s two-run double was the key blow. Orlando Santos picked up his 11th save. In the nightcap, Ian Gac had two hits and Nick Ciolli had two RBIs for the Intimidators, but they couldn’t hold an early lead. It was a tough day for Daniel Wagner (South Rowan). He was 0-for-4. The Intimidators look to win their third straight home series tonight against the Suns at 7:05 p.m.

 Minor leagues Vermont’s Wade Moore (West Rowan, Catawba) drove in three runs on Sunday and had a 2-for-3 day. Moore’s two-out, two-run single in the first inning put the Sea Monsters on the road to a 6-1 win against Batavia.

Moore also stole his 13th base of the season.  Playing close to his hometown of Clayton against the Carolina Mudcats, Chattanooga’s Jerry Sands (Catawba) went 2-for-5 on Sunday.  Burlington’s Whit Merrifield (Davie) had a double on Sunday and is batting .218.

 American Legion Kernersville ran low on pitching and lost to host Columbia, Tenn., 121 in the Southeast Regional tournament on Sunday. Columbia rocked Post 36 with a seven-run fourth inning. In other action, Conyers, Ga., knocked out Bayamon, P.R., with an 8-0 victory. The regional championship and a berth in the World Series (Spokane, Wash.) will be decided today. Three teams are left in the doubleelimination event. All have one setback. Conyers takes on Columbia in the first game of the day at 4 p.m. Columbia beat Conyers 4-3 in the first round. The winner of that game plays Kernersville at 7 p.m. for the championship.

 Raider Day South Rowan will hold Raider Day on Saturday, Aug. 14. There will be a car wash from 8 a.m. until noon. South will also hold a communitywide yard sale and a bake sale. There will be plenty of food. For more information or to rent a yard sale space, call 704-857-8164.

Tuesday morning at North is fall sports picture day. “Meet the Fall Athletes” at North is at 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

Mahan rallies on final day Associated Press

AKRON, Ohio — Hunter Mahan took a big step toward joining the elite in golf on Sunday, winning his first World Golf Championship title to lock up a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team. Four shots behind to start the final round at Firestone, Mahan ran off five birdies on the front nine to take the lead, then had three clutch par saves down the stretch to finish off a 6-under 64 and a two-shot victory over Ryan Palmer. It was the second victory this year for Mahan, and the $1.4 million he earned moved him to No. 2 in the Ryder Cup standings with only the PGA Championship remaining before the top eight Americans qualifying. The battle for No. 1 was far less inspiring. Tiger Woods will remain atop the world ranking for the 270th consecutive week, despite the worst tournament of his career. Woods closed with a 77 to finish at 18-over 298 — his highest score on the PGA Tour as a pro or an amateur — and finished one spot out of last place. That cleared the way for Phil Mickelson to replace him at No. 1, provided Lefty finished in fourth place alone. But Mickelson was even worse. He shot 41 on the front nine, including a three-putt from 4 feet, and shot 78 to tie for 46th. PGA Tour VERONA, N.Y. — Bill Lunde ral-

lied with a 6-under 66 to finish at 17under 271, holding off J.J. Henry by one stroke to win the Turning Stone Resort Championship. The win is the first for Lunde in his second full season on the PGA Tour. He vaulted into the lead with six birdies on the front nine and played even par for the last nine holes. Lunde earned a spot in next week’s PGA Championship at Whistling Straits with the victory. He also won $720,000 and picked up 250 FedEx Cup points. Champions Tour BLAINE, Minn. — David Frost jumped out fast Sunday with a brilliant front nine and finished with an 11-under 61 to earn a record-setting victory at the 3M Championship. It was the first career Champions Tour win for Frost, whose 25-under 191 was two shots better than the previous tournament scoring record set by R.W. Eaks in 2008. His final-round score beat by one the tournament’s previous lowest round set by Dana Quigley in 2008. Frost also tied the tour record of 25-under for a 54-hole tournament previously set by Loren Roberts at the 2006 MasterCard Championship at Hualalai and equaled by Bernhard Langer at the 2007 Administaff Small Business Classic. Mark Calcavecchia, tied with Frost for the lead after 36 holes, shot a 4under 68, and finished second.

Langer considered for Ryder Cup NEWPORT, Wales — Europe captain Colin Montgomerie is considering handing a Ryder Cup wild card to Bernhard Langer, even though the German is now on the Champions Tour. The 53-year-old Langer played the last of his 10 Ryder Cups at The Belfry in 2002. In the last three weeks he has won both the Senior British Open and the U.S. Senior Open. Montgomerie believes his vast Cup experience could be invaluable to a Europe team that might include at least four rookies. “I would not rule out picking Bernhard,” Montgomerie said. “I’m not ruling out anybody, especially someone who has performed to that degree and is in the form of his life.” Langer said Sunday at the 3M Championship in suburban Minneapolis: “If he wants me on the team I would definitely consider it, yes.” Montgomerie said to win the Senior British at Carnoustie, then travel eight time zones and beat local favorite Fred Couples at the U.S. Senior in Seattle was no mean feat. “He (Langer) said afterward that he used everything he had learned in

the Ryder Cup to overcome a very vocal home support, and I think it wouldn’t be such a dramatic move to have someone of that age and that experience in the team,” he said. “It wouldn’t be such an out-of-theblue pick. I think he’s playing as well as he ever has and he’s said he is. And I know through having played with Bernhard Langer that he is as good a partner as anyone could ever have.” Montgomerie has another month before he has to pick his team to play the United States in Wales on Oct. 13, and he may have an experience gap that could be filled by Langer. Langer used the same logic when he added Montgomerie to the 2004 squad he captained. “He was borderline,” Langer said, “but I felt he brought a lot of experience and the right spirit into the team room, and he played well.” Montgomerie might not have the services of European No. 1 and world No. 3 Lee Westwood, who pulled out of the Bridgestone Invitational after two rounds Friday with a calf injury. The Englishman said he will need at least six weeks of rest and treatment before he can return to golf.

Allen happy with Shaq

Sypher claims she had unfair trial Associated Press

Associated Press

The NBA notebook ... UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Ray Allen says there is room in Boston for the Big Diesel and the Big Three. The Celtics guard, speaking Saturday before a charity basketball game in Connecticut, said he believes Shaquille O’Neal is a good fit in Boston’s quest to repeat as Eastern Conference champion. The 7-foot-1, 325-pound center signed a two-year contract worth about $3 million on Wednesday. “It’s definitely interesting to me, because I think he can help us,” Allen said. “One of our bad traits this past year was offensive rebounding and rebounding in general, and he’s a guy that takes up a lot of space, so I definitely think he can help us.” Allen said he’s looking forward to the battles with LeBron James and Miami, and likes being in the underdog role, rather than the team with the bulls-eye on its back. “It was hard in ’08 when everyone gave us the trophy every corner that we turned,” he said. MORE SHAQ Bill Reynolds of the Providence Journal writes ... The good news is that Shaquille O’Neal is headed to the Boston Celtics. The bad news is that it’s Shaq on fumes, Shaq at the end of the trail, the Shaq who can’t move, can’t guard anyone, and is only a faint reminder of the dominant, Hall of Fame-to-be player he once was. The better news? The Celtics aren’t looking for him to be what he once was. They are looking for him to be (1) an insurance policy until Kendrick Perkins comes back from knee sur-

Ray Allen says Shaquille O’Neal will help the Celtics. gery, and (2) a very big body off the bench. He is 38 now, and his glory days are clearly in the past. Last year for the Cavaliers, he was still effective in the low block, where his immense size could still overpower people, but he was painfully slow and plodding, and when he got the ball everything seemed to stop. He also remains a liability from the free-throw line. So it’s all about lowered expectations now. But for all his oversized personality and presence, all the theater that seems to follow him around like an afternoon shadow, O’Neal is no fool. He knows he’s not coming to the Celtics to be the man. He’s coming to be a part, albeit a very high profile one. But he wants to play for a winner, and the Celtics are a perfect fit, an aging team that wants one more title before it’s all blown up and sent along its way. He will arrive with the force field that always surrounds him. Shaq is many things, but low profile isn’t one of them. The other day he was quoted as saying, “Worst comes to worst, I’ll be a doctor, and do speaking engagements and talk to children and run for sheriff in this town or the next town over.” Say what? No matter. He will help the Celtics. All the theater that comes with him is extra.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The woman convicted of trying to extort Rick Pitino said she didn’t get a fair trial because of the Louisville coach’s fame and power. Karen Cunagin Sypher told The Courier-Journal newspaper that Louisville is a small enough city for any jury to be influenced by Pitino. “I know now there is no justice system. There is no justice,” Sypher said. Sypher was convicted Thursday of extortion, lying to the FBI and retaliating against a witness. Prosecutors said Sypher demanded millions in cash, cars and a house from Pitino to stay quiet about their one-night stand at a Louisville restaurant in 2003. Sentencing in the case is set for Oct. 27. Sypher said she was “numb” and hasn’t thought about a potential prison sentence. Sypher said there’s additional evidence her attorney did not use at the trial, but she would not say what it was. “The story has not come out yet,” she said.

ColleGe BASkeTBAll OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops is the latest person seeking change in how agents are involved in college basketball and the recruiting process. At a fan event for Sooners fans, Stoops suggested that nothing will change in how agents are involved in college sports until the agents themselves are punished for breaking NCAA rules instead of schools. And he specifically suggested that “the NBA is not supporting NCAA basketball” and should take action to sus-

MINNEAPOLIS — With the world waiting, Anthony Tolliver has finally announced his decision. Tolliver said he has chosen to play for the Minnesota Timberwolves in a short video posted on YouTube that mocks superstar LeBron James’ much-maligned “The Decision” special on ESPN last month. Tolliver, a relatively unknown forward with 65 career games in the NBA, spent the last few days deciding between offers from the Timberwolves and the Golden State Warriors. In a video entitled “The Decision: Part Deux!!” Tolliver spoofs all the attention given to James, who announced “I will be taking my talents to South Beach” in a one-hour television show on ESPN in July. In the spoof, a woman off camera asks Tolliver when he made his decision. “Um, I think I made my decision this morning while using the bathroom,” Tolliver deadpans. “It just came to me.” Woman: “So, are you going to let us know your decision?” After writing it down on a piece of paper to extend the supense, Tolliver announces: “I will be taking my services to the north, the Minnesota Timberwolves” and holds up the ratty piece of notebook paper as a wolf howls in the background.

I think this will really bring the team together. It’s a great thing for the future.” Ambrose won his third straight Nationwide race over the 11-turn, 2.45-mile Watkins Glen layout on Saturday. He was poised to capture his first Sprint Cup victory at Sonoma in June when things went awry. He stalled his No. 47 while leading under a late caution, was unable to keep pace, had to restart seventh when he couldn’t get it refired and finished sixth. He seemed destined to finally break

through at The Glen, but the handling on the last set of tires was off and Kurt Busch slipped past him late. “It hurts,” said Ambrose, who announced recently that he was leaving JTG-Daugherty Racing after the season. “It doesn’t feel nice.” Montoya pulled away on every restart, but each time Ambrose reeled him in. When the race restarted for the final time with 15 laps left, Kurt Busch passed Ambrose as Montoya took off again. Ambrose got past Busch in the first turn of lap 77 and began the chase again as it became a two-car contest. This time, Ambrose was unable to cut into the lead.

TRUCkS GLADEVILLE, Tenn. — Todd Bodine just wants to win, whether it’s a close finish or he blows away the field. Bodine dominated Saturday night at Nashville Superspeedway, leading 91 laps and earning his second victory of the season at the Nashville 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. “We did (it) in the style of Germain Racing and just stomped them,” said Bodine, who led the last 88 laps. Bodine extended his series lead over Aric Almirola to 174 points, but said the championship is by no means a given. “We’ve just got to go out and keep doing what we’re doing,” he said. “We don’t (need) to worry about everybody else and we’ll be just fine. We just can’t make mistakes and put ourselves in a hole.”

HALL FROM 1B

mike london/SALISBURY POST

Former NFL star Billy Ray Barnes, right, congratulates George C. Knox, a fellow Landis legend, on his Hall induction. Cherry said with a laugh. The last paddling of Cherry’s life came from Ponder, who was inducted as the Horace Billings Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. Ponder was a fine college football player — team captain at N.C. Central — before making his mark in coaching and administration as a molder of young men. He coached all sports but had his greatest success with Livingstone tennis. His teams won seven division championships and ended Hampton’s nine-year winning streak. Zelda Ponder, the late coach’s wife, accepted the honor on his behalf. “Sports were a vital part of Fred’s life,” she said. “Sports were an avenue that opened doors not just to provide for his family but to touch lives.” Meyer died two years ago, but the “Running Man” who chaired Catawba’s athletics department from 1969-2005 will be long remembered. Meyer coached Catawba wrestling to prominence, while also starting a program at Livingstone. He also pioneered the Rowan Regional cardiac rehab program. “My dad always tried to

take part,” said Wendy Meyer-Goodwin, who accepted his plaque. “He loved to coach. He loved to play. We had a fun run on the day he died, and that was very appropriate.” Myers won Player of the Year honors for both football and baseball his senior year at North (1990-91) and was AllSAC in both sports at LenoirRhyne. “My first hero was a brother who was 8 years older, and I grew up playing games with him and his friends,” Myers said. “That made me grow up a little faster and tougher.” Myers had the honor of hearing coach Don Shula’s voice welcoming him to Miami after he was drafted by the NFL Dolphins in the seventh round in 1995, but a lacerated kidney suffered when he fell on a football jeopardized his career — and his life. He lost 30 percent of that kidney but came back to shine as a receiver in the Canadian Football League. Myers is now a tire-changer on Martin Truex Jr.’s crew, but he was allowed to attend yesterday’s induction rather than travel to Watkins Glen. After all, you don’t become a Hall of Famer every day.

After practice, fans excitedly took pictures of Tebow’s bad haircut, which quickly circulated around the Internet. Finally, a team official handed him a baseball cap to hide his bad hair day.

“It’s a blessing,” Knox said. “My mother (Moena Sherrill Knox) would be extremely proud. She went to every game I ever played in.” It was his mother who drove him to that breakout game in Cooleemee. Knox never looked back. Cross was a 2,000-point scorer at North and one of the best female basketball players in county history. The 1994 graduate still owns four of the top eight scoring games in North annals, including a record 43. Her senior year she averaged 29.2 points a game. Cross scored 1,349 points for Maryland, leading the Terps in scoring and rebounding three times before heading to Europe for pro ball. Noting the presence of Cross and 2008 inductee Tracy Connor-Riddick, selection committee chairman and master of ceremonies Wilson Cherry quipped, “The basketball ladies we’ve inducted so far could beat the men.” At Boyden High in the 1950s, Hellard was the kicker for great Bill Ludwig-coached football teams. As a head coach, he went 144-92 at Salisbury and West Rowan, records that he credits to assistants such as Bill Lee and Ralph Ellis. Before he was a head coach, Hellard assisted on great football and basketball teams. He was equally content in the background, out of the limelight. Cherry credited Hellard as the inspiration for him going to college. As a youth, Cherry spent a summer working for Hellard on SHS athletic fields. “I knew I never wanted to work that hard ever again,”

TORONTO — The Blue Jays’ Brandon Morrow lost a no-hit bid with two outs in the ninth inning on a single by Evan Longoria, then stuck out his 17th batter of the game to finish off a 1-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday. The three-game sweep was crippling for the Rays, who have lost a season-high five straight after briefly moving ahead of the New York Yankees in the AL East earlier in the week. Vernon Wells drove in the only run before leaving with a dislocated toe, which happened when he made a leaping catch against the wall in the sixth inning to preserve Morrow’s no-hit bid. The Rays came close to being involved in their fourth no-hitter of the season, which would be a record for the modern era. Matt Garza threw the first no-hitter in Rays history against Detroit on July 26, and Tampa Bay was on the short end against Arizona’s Edwin Jackson on June 26 and Oakland’s Dallas Braden on May 9, when he finished off a perfect game. Dave Stieb threw the only no-hitter for the Blue Jays on Sept. 2, 1990, at Cleveland. The club record for strikeouts in a game is 18, set by Roger Clemens on Aug. 25, 1998. Yankees 7, Red Sox 2 NEW YORK — Derek Jeter passed Babe Ruth on the career hits list and drove in three runs and Dustin Moseley filled in admirably for an injured A.J. Burnett. Mark Teixeira hit his 25th homer, becoming the fourth player to hit at least 25 in each of his first eight big league seasons, and Lance Berkman won over Yankees fans with two doubles — and not hitting Alex Rodriguez again. Rodriguez was back in the lineup a day after he was struck on his left leg by Berkman’s BP grounder. Twins 5, Indians 4 CLEVELAND — Jim Thome hit a two-

Dodgers dump veteran LOS ANGELES (AP) — Outfielder Garret Anderson was designated for assignment on Sunday by the Los Angeles Dodgers, who purchased the contract of outfielder-first baseman Jay Gibbons from Triple-A Albuquerque. Anderson, who turned 38 years old on June 30, batted .181 in 80 games with two homers and 12 RBIs after signing with the club as a free agent in March. The threetime All-Star, who was used primarily as a backup outfielder and left-handed pinch-hitter, was in his 17th big league season. He spent last season with Atlanta after the Angels chose not to re-sign him. Anderson played his first 2,013 games with the Angels and holds their franchise records in every major offensive category except home runs. He had the biggest hit in Angels history, a tiebreaking three-run double in game 7 of the 2002 World Series against San Francisco, and was the MVP of the 2003 All-Star game as well as the Home Run Derby champ that year. “Gibbons probably all year long has been this guy producing down there, and Garret has been inconsistent here,” manager Joe Torre said. “As tough as this was to do for me, because of how I respect this guy’s career and respect him as a person, we just felt we wanted to try something different. He took it obviously with a great deal of class. He said: ’Thanks for the opportunity.’ ”

The probabilities for success look strong for you in the year ahead, in two areas you consider to be extremely important. The first is your work or career and the second involves your social affairs. You’ll be enriched in both of them. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Unless you are a self-made millionaire, don’t try to tell others how to mange their resources. You might mean well, but what you’re advising them could lead to a losing experience. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — It’ll be important to remember that giving and taking is a two-way street. Be just as enthusiastic about lending what you can as you are about receiving loans from others. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If someone hires you for a specific job, make sure the terms are clearly laid out and understood by all parties involved. If either you or they don’t understand what’s expected, unfairness could be claimed. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don’t put too much stock in the promises of braggarts or hotshots. What they have to offer might merely be something they only wish they had or could produce. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — It’s going to take a lot more then your charm and good looks to get you by the challenges of others, especially in career situations. Be able to produce what you claim you can. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Nothing you say is likely to get past listeners without scrutiny. If you want your views to be accepted, have the facts ready to back up everything you claim. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Be extremely careful in your bookkeeping, so that mistakes aren’t able to sneak in and wreak havoc with your affairs. Later, when it matters, your books might show a deficit instead of a profit. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — You’re likely to be all on your own, so be prepared. People who usually are there for you might not be in a position to help, just when you need them the most. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Get involved if you believe it to be necessary, but make sure you are doing so for the right reasons, such as helping someone who is getting picked on just because s/he is the underdog. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Practice moderations in all things, and you won’t get in trouble. Indulging in excesses for any reason will result in problems, if not now, then down the line. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — There’s a good chance you’ll make things harder on yourself by thinking everyone but you is getting all breaks. If you knew their problems, you wouldn’t want to switch places. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Braggarts are the type of people you find to be extremely unappealing, yet you could become one of them if you’re not careful. Be humble in the telling of your exploits.

Finding alternatives to statins The second-suit rule works again tient and his or her physician. That said, there might be alternatives. First, however, let’s hit some possibilities. You can lower the dose of your medication. This may reduce or eliminate the leg cramps and fatigue but may also reduce the effectiveness of the statin. You can change to another label; however, this might not be successful. You have already cut back on your exercise routine, so I can’t endorse a further reduction. While some researchers question its effectiveness, you might consider ezetimibe, a prescription cholesterol-absorption inhibitor, or you might try an over-the-counter with natural plant stanols and sterols. You don’t indicate if the niacin was at all effective. Did you give it a try for a satisfactory length of time? If you smoke, discontinue the habit. Eliminate fried foods, the skin on chicken and the fat on steak. Broil meats, and be sure to cut off any excess fat prior to cooking. Continue to exercise and modify your diet. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish and chicken. Limit the amount of cheese and eggs you consume, and switch to fat-free milk. Ask your physician if he or she would consider an appropriate length of time so you can initiate a new diet and exercise plan. Perhaps a referral to a nutritionist and the physical-therapy department of your local hospital will be appropriate. Consider an OTC that doesn’t contain a statin component. Ask your physician or specialist for advice on treating

your leg cramps. If an underlying cause, such as iron deficiency or peripheral neuropathy, enters the equation, obtain appropriate treatment. Then consider ibuprofen, meditation, yoga and warm or cold packs. Avoid caffeine and alcohol. Place a bar of soap under your bed sheet to alleviate cramping. Exercise, but don’t overdo it, because fatigue will make your symptoms worse.

When you play in a suit contract with a side suit that needs to be established and cashed, it is usually right to play on the side suit before drawing all or any of the missing trumps. That was true in today’s deal. In a team-of-four match, both Souths were in four spades. The Wests led the club queen. After winning with his ace, how should each declarer have continued? If you were North, do not even think about rebidding two clubs (or two diamonds) with that hand. With a minimum and a singleton, raise partner’s major. South for the losing team immediately played a spade to the king.

Robbie Williams marries U.S. actress in Los Angeles LONDON (AP) — British pop singer Robbie Williams has married U.S. actress Ayda Field in his Beverly Hills mansion. Spokesman Murray Chalmers said in a statement Sunday that the pair held a ceremony on the grounds of their home in Los Angeles on Saturday. People.com reported that a small group of 75 guests attended the 36year-old singer’s wedding.

Yes, the 5-0 trump break was very unlucky, but it was still the wrong play because it burnt up a dummy entry far too soon. Double-dummy, declarer could have survived, but he turned to diamonds.

However, West won with his ace and gave his partner a diamond ruff. When East exited accurately with the spade nine, the contract was unmakable. If South had won the first trump trick in his hand and played on diamonds, he could have survived. If the defenders took a diamond ruff, declarer could play a spade to dummy’s king and lead winning diamonds through East. When he ruffed, declarer would overruff, return to dummy with a trump, and enjoy the remaining diamond winners. However, the second South made the best play: He led the diamond jack at trick two. West won (ducking isn’t better) and gave East the ruff. But declarer then used the diamonds as just described.

Dear Dr. Gott: I would appreciate your advice. I am a 72-year-old Caucasian female with treated high blood pressure and high cholesterol (362)/triglycerides (403). Using a statin drug, I am able to get them down to 231 and 288, respectively. My problem is that I react poorly to statins. My DR. PETER legs have become weak, I GOTT have a nightmare of leg cramps, my muscles hurt, and I cope with nausea and gas. The cramps have spread to my hands and chest muscles. I formerly was walking two miles a day; now I can barely walk a half-mile, and that is with stops. I have tried niacin and red yeast rice. I am currently taking omega-3 and flaxseed-oil capsules. I am 5 feet 2 inches tall and weigh 168 pounds. I am careful about my diet. I feel good and energetic when not taking a statin; however, I’m lethargic when taking the drug. I’m afraid to quit but am truly miserable, so which is the lesser evil? I truly do not know what to do. Dear Reader: Statin drugs work well, but for some people, the price is high. This poses the question of whether the benefits outweigh the risks. No one wants to suffer a heart attack or stroke, nor do they want unpleasant side effects such as those you have experienced. The answer should be a decision between a pa-
