Thomson HOT AND GETTING HOTTER resigns Historic Salisbury Foundation managing director taking executive director job in Asheville BY EMILY FORD eford@salisburypost.com

hink it was hot Monday? The weather is going to

get even hotter this week, ac-

cording to forecasts. Chris Horne, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said this region should expect temperatures in the mid- to upper 90s this week. According to Weather Underground, Monday’s high temperature was 94. Horne said temperatures should go down this weekend, but only after the heat index reaches about 100 degrees. “There will be more humid air on Thursday, so that will be the best chance for hot and humid weather this week,” he said. Rowan has experienced several heat waves this summer, and July averaged about 2 degrees hotter than normal, Horne said. Many county residents are simply trying to avoid the heat by staying indoors. Enjoying a cool treat doesn’t hurt either. Lynn Cox visited Curt & Geri’s Dairy Bar Monday afternoon with her daughter, Lindsay Herring, and mother, Georgia Miller. “We decided to stop for ice cream and beat the heat,” Cox said. “I came in here and said, ‘I just need something cool.’ ” Herring and Miller went to the beach for the weekend to cool off by the ocean. Otherwise, Miller said she mostly stays indoors in the air conditioning. Trisha Manion also ate ice cream in the shop with her

daughter, Julie. She said she is frustrated with the heat because she has to avoid going outdoors. “You can’t do anything,” Trisha said. “The flowers are all dying because it’s just too hot for gardening or mowing the lawn.” The pair said they both tend to stay in the air conditioning, whether in their China Grove home or out in shops around-

town. They are originally from Syracuse, N.Y. — Trisha moved here four years ago and Julie, two — so the Southern heat is still fairly new to them. “It is easier for me to adjust to heat than to cold,” Julie said. “You get to where 90 degrees feels cool.” Emergency services responded to a call about heat exhaustion Monday afternoon

in Spencer, underscoring the importance of staying hydrated and as cool as possible in hot weather. Sammi Ervin, social work supervisor with Rowan County Senior Services, said senior services works to help older adults in the county deal with the summer heat. The department purchases fans through a Duke Energy grant for seniors who need them. This year, there has been such a high demand that the 147 fans purchased are already gone. “We focus on people who have no air conditioning,” Ervin said. “Then we looked at

County Elections Director Nancy Evans said in July she doesn’t think this type of election has ever been held in Rowan County. Gov.

Credited with changing the image of the Historic Salisbury Foundation from “stodgy” to youthful and politically active, Jack Thomson has resigned as managing director. Thomson will become the new executive director for the Preservation Society of Asheville & Buncombe County. His last day at Historic Salisbury will be Sept. 3. “He’s young and vibrant, and he’s gotten us out of the stodgy image that we were trying so hard to eliminate,” said THOMSON Sarah Kellogg, president of the Historic Salisbury board of trustees. “I really am sorry to see him go.” Thomson, who has served for six years, leaves one of the pre-eminent historic preservation organizations in the southeast for a grassroots group with one office coordinator and a meager budget. The Asheville society has not had a paid director for several years. Salisbury’s foundation, which has four paid staffers and 450 members, operates with an annual budget of between $250,000 and $300,000. The Asheville society has 300 members and a “tremendously low” budget, Thomson said. But the Asheville group, founded in 1976, is poised for growth and has a large, dedicated volunteer force, he said. “It’s an opportunity to grow an important organization in a community that, while very popular as a tourist destination, needs additional support in the preservation of their built environment,” Thomson said. Thomson recruited a new generation of preservationists to Historic Salisbury, including Amy Goodnight, chairwoman for the organization’s largest fundraiser, OctoberTour. “His tireless efforts to get younger people involved has really paid off in spades,” said Greg Shields, 40, who joined the board at Thomson’s suggestion. Thomson worked just as hard “on the political action end,” Shields said, including leading the effort to save Shober Bridge and lobbying for a new city ordinance to delay demolition of historic properties. The Asheville society chose Thomson during a nationwide search. Preservation leaders were impressed with his passion, ideas, people skills and knowledge of civic issues, said Paul Reeves, chairman of the transition team. “We are very, very excited to get Jack on board and get him working in our community,” Reeves said. After years as a mostly volunteer organization, Asheville preservationists decided “to make the leap to being more professional,” he said. A number of challenges await Thomson’s arrival in Asheville. The group wants concerted fundraising and more robust services for members, including educational events. They will look to Thomson to work as an advocate, participating in community initiatives “where preservation needs to have a seat at the table,” Reeves said. When the economy rebounds, Asheville will feel more pressure from new development than Salisbury, he said. “That frequently will threaten historic structures,” he said. Thomson, who was born in Boone and grew up in the Asheville area, said he is looking forward to establishing a real estate program for historic preservation, similar to Salisbury’s. “That has been a major key to success in Salisbury, and preservationists all over the country recognize a real estate program as a key tool,” he said. Thomson said he can’t choose one project as his favorite or most important. “There have been a lot of challenges and great successes,” he said. “I will always look back on my tenure in Salisbury fondly and consider Salisbury home.” He encouraged local preservationists to continue their work. “Many people perhaps take for granted the complex and highly mature program of work that Historic Salisbury has undertaken in the past 37 years,” he said. Salisbury has become known around the country for historic preservation. Asheville has the potential to do the same, he said. Salisbury preservationists should not rest on their laurels “because as soon as you do, a threat will arise,” Thomson said. “The work of preservation is so critically important to creating the special sense of place this community has.” Kellogg said she will consult the board of trustees to determine if the foundation will appoint an interim director or begin a search immediately. She called Thomson’s departure an “egregious loss.” Contact reporter Emily Ford at 704-797-4264. 11B 5B 10B 10B

Senior services makes an effort to keep older adults safe with education, a donated fan or a referral to another agency for assistance.

ENOCHVILLE — Authorities have released a sketch of one of the two suspects in the Aug. 1 armed robbery of the Dollar General Store at 106 S. Enochville Ave. Two clerks at the Dollar General told authorities they were closing the store at 106 S. Enochville Ave. when a car pulled into the parking lot. The car left, but the clerks told authorities two men who had been in the vehicle stayed and began beating on the front doors with guns, demanding to be let in. The clerks said the men — who wore black bandanas over their faces — threatened to shoot them if they didn’t open the door, so they let the men inside. The clerks told investigators the men pointed guns at them while they filled a plastic bag with cash. The men left on foot, but investigators suspect they were picked up somewhere nearby.

RALEIGH — While the first project for the new N.C. Mobility Fund has been chosen — the $130 million widening of Interstate 85 north of a planned new Yadkin River bridge — the state is seeking public input on the best way to select future projects. The fund generates new dollars for transportation projects of statewide or regional significance. The N.C. Department of Transportation will use ideas from the public to establish a formal project selection process. “This new funding source will make a real difference in easing congestion and helping people get where they need to go more efficiently in North Carolina,” Transportation Secretary Gene Conti said in a press release. “With strong public input, we can create a fair selection process that takes

Authorities say Martinez was so intoxicated that as soon as he tried to run from police, he fell to the ground. Martinez was charged for allegedly ripping mailbox posts out of the ground and for breaking into cars and rummaging through items in them. Nothing was taken from the cars. The incidents happened along Freedom Drive and Imperial Drive in Salisbury. Police say there could be more victims and more charges for Martinez.

Two men were arrested Monday after authorities say they tried to cash in lottery tickets stolen during a break-in at Tamarac Marina. The teens also stole cigarettes and the cash register from the business, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said. Joshua Scott Ritchie, 19, of 1177 Ebenezer Road, Kannapolis, and Jerrett Travis Wilhite, 18, of 1445 China Grove Road, China Grove, are each charged with felony breaking and entering and felony larceny after breaking and entering. They remained in the RITCHIE Rowan County jail Monday evening under $10,000 bond apiece. Patrol deputies with the Sheriff’s Office responded to Tamarac Marina Monday to investigate a break-in. They found the business had been broken into through the front door, the Sheriff’s Office said in a press release. WILHITE The business has a video surveillance system and captured the suspects on tape, the press release said. Later Monday, two men tried to cash in the stolen lottery tickets at a store in Kannapolis. The description of the suspects in the Tamarac break-in and the men from the business in Kannapolis matched, the press release said. They were seen driving a tan or gold pickup. Investigators conducted interviews with Ritchie and Wilhite, then charged them.

Police: Woman slices sister’s face with box cutter A Salisbury woman is in jail after police say she sliced open her sister’s face with a box cutter. Johnnie Michelle Witherspoon, 48, of 741 Victory St., was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. She is also charged with possession of a controlled substance after police say they found a crack pipe and marijuana at Witherspoon’s WITHERSPOON home. Witherspoon was jailed under $2,500 bond. According to the Salisbury Police Department, Witherspoon got into a fight with her sister, Nadine Marie Hyde, grabbed a box cutter, and cut her face open, from Hyde’s left eye to chin. Hyde was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center for her injuries. Police say the two sisters were intoxicated at the time of the incident.

Two women charged with prostitution Two women were charged over the weekend with prostitution. Robin Elaine Walton Pielucci, 48, of 3785 Dunns Mountain Road, was arrested for conspiring to commit prostitution after police found her performing a sex act on a Salisbury man, a Salisbury Police Department report said. According to the report, an officer saw a vehicle pulled over on Long Street early Saturday morning and turned on a spotlight. The officer saw a man in the driver’s seat, and then saw another person performing a sexual act on the man. Police charged the man, Lynn Mitchell Kiser Sr., of 210 W. 10th St., with conspiring to commit prostitution. Police say Pielucci admitted she was trying to make a little gas money. The second arrest for conspiring to commit prostitution was early Monday morning. Undercover Salisbury Police officers wearing civilian clothing pulled over to the side of the road on North Long Street and asked Jennifer Lorrain Thomas, 30, if she would get in the car with them and “go party.” Police say that after she got into the vehicle, she offered to perform sexual acts on each of them for $20. Thomas, of 507 E. Cemetery St., was charged with soliciting prostitution and given a $7,550 secured bond.

HINA GROVE — With equal parts optimism and brashness, lots of

young people think they want

to save the world. The thing is, when Richard and Max Brooke say it, you believe them. In September, the 22-yearold twin brothers will set off on a 10-month project, chronicling the work of the United Church of Christ. Their travels will take them to Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Washington, D.C., Maryland, West Virginia, Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee and finally home to North Carolina for Christmas break. The rest of their schedule is yet to be set. The sons of Tom and Carole Brooke of China Grove, the two young men couldn’t be more excited about this volunteer undertaking. The two will create a blog — it’s known around the UCC offices in Cleveland as the “Brooke Brothers’ Blogging Tour”; however, they’re calling it “Twin Maps” — to tell the story of the UCC sites through photographs and videos. “We like to travel, and we’re twins.

When you consider that Max has a degree in communications from East Carolina University with a focus in broadcasting and journalism, while Richard majored in political sciences and religious studies with a minor in social justice at UNC, you begin to see just how this plan came together. The twins seem perfect for the project. Not only are they as close as brothers can be — they finish each other’s sentences and seem to read each other’s minds — their gentlemanly manners and overall courteousness are sure to win them many friends along the way.

Council votes 4-2 to join Council of Governments in seeking federal funds BY HUGH FISHER hfisher@salisburypost.com

KANNAPOLIS – A split City Council voted Monday to support a partnership with the Centralina Council of Governments in seeking millions in grant money from the federal government. Al Sharp, executive director of the council, said Kannapolis had the potential to play a leading role in use of up to $3.75 million if the group is selected. The Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant is designed to foster cooperation between local governments. The grant combines grant funds from EPA, HUD, and

the U.S. Department of Transportation. Sharp said the Council of Governments only had a 60day window to make the application. “(The grant) would provide us with funds to really get to the heart of how we can work as a region ... to build back the resources that we have lost in the recession,” Sharp said. According to information given to council members, the grant will be used to encourage citizen participation in planning long-term growth. These include “…analyses that for the first time will allow our decision-makers to

Parents whose insurance doesn’t quite cover the cost of immunizing their children will no longer receive free vaccines under new guidelines adopted by the state. By law, children must be up-todate on their required immunizations to start school. The Rowan County Board of Health will discuss the impact on children who may not be able to attend school because they cannot afford the shots at its monthly meeting today. The board meets at 7 p.m. at the Rowan County Department of Social Services, 1813 E. Innes St. The meeting is open to the public. The board will also: • Hear updates to state rabies laws, amended Jan. 1, including new requirements for shelters, animal control officers and a holding period prior to euthanasia. • Receive a recommendation for Health Director Leonard Wood to establish a $200 fee for restaurants, bars and hotels in violation

of the no-smoking law. The board will also discuss a procedure for imposing the penalty. • Receive an update on a pit bull, Red, who was declared a potentially dangerous dog by the Board of Health’s appeals board in July. The dog terrorized other dogs and people in the neighborhood. • Consider increasing the costs of pneumonia vaccines from $40 to $48 and requiring people to pay cash for flu shots. Medicaid will be billed for clients with Medicaid only. • Hear a presentation from Cindy Oaks about the Southern Piedmont Community Care Plan and the Beacon Technology Grant. She will discuss how the plan works with Rowan, Cabarrus and Stanly counties to assist with medical care of Medicaid-eligible patients in those counties. She’ll also talk about the grant and the benefits for the Health Department and other medical providers.

Community Foundation accepting grant applications The Salisbury Community Foundation is currently accepting applications from nonprofit organizations for its 2010 Grants Program. The foundation will invest in projects and programs that address and support the needs of the Rowan County community. Grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded. Grants are limited to eligible organizations recognized as tax exempt by the IRS (nonprofit, governmental or educational institutions) for projects that will serve Salisbury-Rowan County citizens. Grant applications and a full description of criteria can be found at www.salisburycf.org. Applications must be received by Friday, Sept. 17. For questions about the grants process, contact Karen Coppadge, grants specialist, at 704.973.4559, or kcoppadge@fftc.org. The Salisbury Community Foundation was established in 1944 to increase the charitable giving resources in the Salisbury-Rowan County area.

GRANT FROM 3a determine what patterns will most readily provide the outcomes they and their citizens desire,” according to the information packet. Not all council members were convinced that this was a good partnership. It was noted that Cabarrus and Rowan counties have decided not to participate in the Council. Last December, Rowan County commissioners decided to exit the agency because of issues with the agency’s priorities. Cabarrus County commissioners have also discussed plans to withdraw. But, Sharp said, “This is not a COG membership issue. This is a regional issue.” And, he said, although the two counties are not participating in the council now, “I suspect in the future they will be back in.” The federal grant application requires support of 51 percent of municipalities to be accepted. The decision not to seek the maximum of $5 million, Sharp said, was made because the Charlotte metropolitan area (including Cabarrus and Rowan) would be competing with larger metro areas, such as Seattle. Sharp said Granite Quarry had decided to support the grant application. “Salisbury is working on it. Concord is working on it,” he said. “It’s not a commitment. It’s like receiving an RSVP. It’s an invitation to come to the table.” City Manager Mike Legg said the grant could provide benefits. “We don’t have a really good handle on future transit planning,” Legg said, especially the city’s links to Charlotte and the rest of the region. Councilman Kenneth Geathers made the motion to approve the resolution. Councilman Roger Haas seconded the motion. In the ensuing discussion, Hinnant asked whether the community would suffer if Kannapolis chose not to be a part of the grant application. There was also discussion over whether or not more studies could actually help solve local problems. “I have my doubts that this (partnership) could be successful,” Hinnant said. “I am concerned that if I vote no, or if this council votes no, that this community will be ostracized for that.” “I’ve seen other regional opportunities for participation fail and fall through ... I can’t believe that this is going to make all that go away.” Legg said the grant application could be an opportunity to take a stronger role in the community – that the agreement would be “not

Geathers noted that this participation might make it more likely that the area could get more funds for needs that would be demonstrated by whatever studies are done. The resolution passed on a 4-to-2 vote. Hinnant and Cauthen voted against the measure. Other business before the Kannapolis City Council included: • No update on the TIF bond rating process. Rating agency Standard and Poor’s is expected to release their report on Kannapolis’ proposed tax-increment financing plan in the near future. • The Kannapolis Police Department recognizing seven officers who have been promoted. Three officers and one investigator were recently promoted to sergeant. Three sergeants have also been promoted to lieutenant. • Council members hearing an update on numerous public works project timetables. Of particular interest, an interlocal agreement for the city’s planned Albemarle waterline is awaiting approval within the next month, according to Public Works Director Wilmer Melton. Legg said he hoped some federal money might be earmarked to help fund this waterline. Melton said the installation of some 7,000 feet of waterline in downtown Kannapolis was essentially complete. Once lines are tested, contractors will finish resurfacing the roads where they were installed, Melton said. Plans are also in the works to begin the pedestrian tunnel under Loop Road, connecting Village Park to the North Carolina Research Campus. And a project to redo the railroad crossing at Rogers Lake Road near Main Street is in the final planning stages. • The council voted unanimously to appoint the Rev. James Matchette and Carol Cheatham to the city’s Environmental Stewardship Commission for two-year terms.

Hagan introduces bill governing textile trade WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sens. Kay R. Hagan (DNC) and Lindsey Graham (RSC) last week introduced a bipartisan bill, the Textile Enforcement and Security Act of 2010, designed to beef up enforcement of rules governing textile trade. “This bill HAGAN will help level the playing field for textile companies in North Carolina and across the country,” Hagan said in a press release from her office. “Without proper enforce-

ment, our workers cannot compete in the global marketplace.” According to the press release, for more than two decades, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency has designated trade in textiles as a “Priority Trade Issue” because of the high level of fraudulent activity involved with the import of textile and apparel products. Despite this designation, the press release said, the U.S. textile industry continues to see a significant increase in duty evasion from certain countries through undervaluation, mislabeling, and the use of phony compa-

Many textile and apparel trained specialists are currently assigned to low volume textile and apparel ports. • Increase textile staff at the Customs and Border Protection Agency headquarters and retarget them toward trade preference verifications. Headquarters staff has been significantly reduced over the last five years.

CHARLOTTE (AP) — Roughly 1,500 pounds of socks, sheets, shampoo and other necessities are being flown to Afghanistan to replace gear stolen from Fort Bragg soldiers during shipment. The Charlotte Observer reports Monday that about 70 soldiers had spent hundreds of dollars on the deodorant, toothpaste, and other personal necessities they’d need for a year’s deployment. An Army spokeswoman says their belongings were stolen somewhere between the port of Karachi in Pakistan and Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. Strangers and friends are helping replace what thieves took from the 519th Military Intelligence Battalion. A shipment is leaving Charlotte Monday for Bagram Air Base.

RALEIGH (AP) — Police have arrested a suspect in the death of a man who was gunned down at a downtown barber shop in North Carolina’s capital city. Raleigh police have charged 23-year-old Roger Onaje McKenzie with murder in the death of 29-yearold James Edward Hamer. Both men are from Raleigh. McKenzie was taken into custody without incident Monday afternoon at his home. He is being held without bond in the Wake County Jail. It wasn’t immediately known whether he had an attorney. McKenzie is scheduled to appear in court today. Multiple media outlets report a man ran into the barber shop, shot Hamer as he was in a barber’s chair and ran out. One week ago, a downtown Raleigh clothing store owner was stabbed during a robbery. A suspect was

N.C. gets more than its share of snake bites tivenom.� But antivenom is costly. Its manufacture requires getting venom from snakes and injecting it into sheep, which in turn produce antibodies to combat it. The purified antibodies are then collected from the sheep, a process that altogether can take years. The average treatment costs about $20,000 for the antivenom alone, German said. Multiple doses, such as in cases of bites from deadlier rattlesnakes, can easily rack up $100,000 in antivenom costs. After Raleigh resident Justin Miller was bitten on his ring finger by a copperhead in 2008, he left the hospital with a $60,000 bill, although his health insurance picked up most of it. “That might have been the scariest part of the whole thing, to be honest,� he said. Given that, the best course for handling snake bites is not getting bit at all, a lesson that Jenkins plans to heed when he finally sets out on the last leg of his run. “I’m still going to be barefoot, but I’m going to watch the road more carefully,� he said.

Pearson said the governor’s office believes the budgeting provision is unenforceable but would prefer it remain out of state laws. The governor has broad powers to manage the budget once the General Assembly approves a spending plan, particularly during fiscal emergencies. The governor signed into law the remaining 108 bills on her desk, including a broad ethics and government reform measure, changes to local Alcoholic Beverage Control store rules and a ban on a video sweepstakes machines. Perdue has vetoed one bill since taking office — a measure last year that expanded what requests and documents General Assembly members can keep secret. The Legislature didn’t override the bill, although portions of it were restored this year in the ethics legislation. North Carolina governors have vetoed 10 bills since the chief executive became the last in the country to receive the authority in 1997.

Perdue declines signing last bill left on desk

FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — A customer at a North Carolina Krispy Kreme restaurant got something even sweeter than a dozen hot glazed: $5,000 in cash. Multiple media outlets report that a clerk at a Krispy Kreme in Fayetteville accidentally handed over a box of doughnuts that also contained the store’s cash receipts on Friday. Police said before taking the money to be deposited, a manager put the cash in a doughnut box as a safeguard against theft. Fayetteville Police Sgt. Dan Grubb says the clerk didn’t know about the routine, and accidentally handed the wrong box to a customer at the drivethru window. Grubb says that as of Monday, no one has come forward to return the money.

Presley says a liquid was thrown on the fire. He says the 13-year-old suffered secondand third-degree burns on 80 percent of his body. The 8year-old was burned on more than half of her body, and 20 percent of the toddler’s body was burned. Presley says the children were flown late Sunday to Shriners Hospital for Children in Cincinnati. Their identities were not released. Presley says the parents were inside the home at the time, and neighbors alerted them after hearing the explosion.

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Gov. Beverly Perdue will let the final bill left on her desk from this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Assembly session become law without her signature because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerned it tries to weaken her constitutional budget authority, a spokeswoman said Monday. Perdue, in completing action on 109 bills, believes the university energy savings measure is a good idea, according to her spokeswoman, Chrissy Pearson. But the governor questions one sentence in the bill she argues usurps her power to manage the state budget. Instead of vetoing a bill that had overwhelming support in both the House and Senate, Perdue will ask legislative leaders in a letter this week to delete the contested language when they return to work in January, Pearson said. The governor had until midnight Monday to act on the bills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She believes it limits the governor in the performance of her constitutional duties,â&#x20AC;? Pearson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She expresses some hope in the long (2011) session that that will be corrected.â&#x20AC;? The bill gives University of North Carolina campuses incentives to meet energy savings requirements because they get to keep the money they save from conservation programs, rather than return it to the state government coffers. But the language at issue tells the governor she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reduce university funds elsewhere to effectively cancel out the extra cash campuses get to keep. Rep. Pricey Harrison, DGuilford, a primary sponsor of the legislation, said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an incentive for campuses to build green-friendly buildings if they fear the governor can offset the cash they get to keep by taking money elsewhere. Still, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glad to hear Perdue decided to let the bill become law instead of a veto, which would have required lawmakers to return to Raleigh within the next 10 days to override it.

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Matt Jenkins thought he had run over a stick in the road until it struck out and bit his bare foot. The marathon runner was on a lonely road near Franklin, not far from the Tennessee state line, less than three days from completing a 760-mile barefoot run across North Carolina to raise money for the Western Youth Network. That journeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finish is now about two weeks off, as Jenkins recovers from what turned out to be a bite from a copperhead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt like a yellow jacket sting on my foot at first,â&#x20AC;? he said after being treated at a nearby hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize it was a snake bite until it started swelling up.â&#x20AC;? Jenkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; encounter is increasingly familiar. One researcher estimates that there are 19 snakebites per 100,000 people in North Carolina, compared with a national average of four bites. Perhaps more alarming is where the bites are taking place. Development around cities like Raleigh and Charlotte has more people in areas that were once unpopulated woodlands, so encounters with vipers are on the rise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Snakes have no desire to come across your path, but it happens more and more with more people and more suburbs,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Ben German, an emergency department physician at WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh who researches snakes. Although being on the business end of a snakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fangs is terrifying, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the instantly-fatal experience familiar from Hollywood films. Fewer than a dozen people die from snake bites every year, well below the number killed annually by lightning strikes. And bites from copperheads, the most frequently encountered venomous snake in North Carolina, are almost never fatal. The spring and autumn are when snakes are most active in North Carolina. Copperheads generally give birth in the late summer and fall, and those baby snakes are more aggressive than adult vipers. Emergency rooms tend to see a spike in bite wounds around this time of year. But many bites result from unwise efforts to capture, kill or otherwise handle snakes, known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;illegitimate bites. â&#x20AC;&#x153; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Illegitimate bitesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is medical speak for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have done that,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? said Tanith Tyrr, a Raleigh herpetologist. Behavior that can bring bites ranges from wearing flip-flops in tall grass to reaching into wood piles, leaf piles and other places frequented by snakes without looking first. For a fee, Tyrr will advise property owners on ways to reduce the appeal of their land to snakes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for instance, getting rid of dripping water sources, grain in open bins or scattered birdseed that attracts the rodents that are gobbled up by snakes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relatively easy to avoid getting bitten,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just have a healthy, reasonable respect for them.â&#x20AC;? Alvin Braswell, deputy director of operations at the North Carolina State Museum of Natural Sciences and the former curator of herpetology there, oversees a number of venomous snakes in the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collection. Like Tyrr and German, he thinks the reptiles are misunderstood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they were more aggressive, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be a lot more people getting bit,â&#x20AC;? he said. Copperheads can actually be helpful to have around, Braswell said, eating rats and mice that can spread disease. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a hard sell for people whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been bitten, like Janet Furman of Chapel Hill. She suffered a bite from a copperhead last month and weeks later still needs a crutch to get around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The scary part for me was when my blood pressure rose so high I thought nobody could survive that,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am so fortunate because the infection was taken care of right away.â&#x20AC;? Prompt medical treatment is the best response to a snake bite. The availability of antivenom has reduced the number of fatalities to eight or so per year out of an annual total of about 8,000 venomous bites, according to Dr. Gregory Juckett, a professor at the West Virginia University School of Medicine who has published research on snake bites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the prompt medical management of snake bites that saves lives,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fatality rate would be much higher if people didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get an-

Judge orders protections reinstated for gray wolf aSSociaTed pReSS

Fire crews from the Gabilan camp in keep a close watch on a fire southeast of Tehachapi, calif., recently.

Improving communications can help in fighting wildfires Associated Press

Wildfires can be deadly, as well as causing millions of dollars worth of damage to homes, businesses and natural resources. Efforts to control wildfires often include a staggering array of federal, state and local government agencies. New research from North Carolina State University is shedding light on how these agencies can better communicate with each other to respond more efficiently and effectively to wildfire disasters. “The effective flow of information between groups is important to manage a wildfire,” says Dr. Branda Nowell, an assistant professor of public administration at N.C. State and co-author of a study examining communication during wildfires. “Sharing information is essential to avoid injury or loss of life, protect personal and community assets, maintain vital services, connect key participants involved in managing the fire, and build relationships and trust among those involved with the fire.” Sharing information can be complex in the event of a major wildfire, because organizations involved in responding to the fire can include law enforcement, the American Red Cross, local fire departments, and federal In-

cident Management Teams (IMTs) — which themselves are made up of experts from multiple local, state and federal agencies that are called in to take over efforts to control the fire. “Little empirical research exists to document how information flows during a fire,” Nowell says. But now researchers have developed methodological protocols — research guidelines — that can be used to identify: • What information is needed (and who needs it); • Who has access to the relevant information; • How the information can be shared; and • How to map the overall “market” for information exchange. “The inability to exchange information can lead to problems for all parties during a wildfire,” Nowell says. “For instance, if homeowners do not have full information about a disaster that is headed their way, they may behave differently than if they had that information. Likewise, if the (IMT) managing the wildfire had better information about local features such as local trail systems, cultural sites or endangered species, they might behave differently to mitigate risks during an event.”

The researchers demonstrated how they were able to use these methodological protocols to assess and provide feedback to agencies involved in the management of a wildfire that occurred in northern California in the summer of 2009. “This approach can help identify strengths and weaknesses,” Nowell says, “and is important both practically and theoretically. Practically, fire management and emergency response agencies need tools to help them assess and improve upon their communication networks during a wildfire event in order to accomplish disaster management goals. Theoretically, these tools help scholars to better understand the dynamics of information flows.” The paper, “Understanding Information Flows during Disasters: Methodological Insights from Social Network Analysis,” was co-authored by Nowell, N.C. State forestry professor Dr. Toddi Steelman, N.C. State Ph.D. student Deena Bayoumi and Sarah McCaffrey of the U.S. Forest Service. The paper was presented Monday at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting, in Montreal. The research was funded by the national Joint Fire Science Program, USFS Fire and Aviation Management and the USFS Northern Research Station.

Smog over Moscow worsens as wildfires rage MOSCOW (AP) — A suffocating smog from wildfires hung over the Russian capital Saturday, raising the concentration of dangerous pollutants to a new high as exasperated residents donned masks and dozens of flights were delayed or diverted at the city’s airports. The thick haze engulfed Moscow for a second straight day as southeastern winds blew smoke from the areas worst affected by peat bog and forest fires. Weather experts said the winds are unlikely to change over the next few days. The concentration of airborne pollutants such as carbon monoxide has further intensified and is at more than six times normal levels, according to city health officials — the worst seen to date in Moscow. The smog has seeped into buildings and the city’s subway system. “I can’t bear it anymore,” said Anna Kozyreva, 25. “My parents have left the city. All I want to is breathe normally, but my job doesn’t allow me to leave.” “The smoke is everywhere — at home, in shopping malls, on the subway,” added Roman Morozov, a 29-year old architect. Visibility was down to a few hundred meters, and dozens of flights bound for Moscow’s Domodedovo and Vnukovo airports were diverted to other airports or delayed. Nearly 600 separate blazes

were burning nationwide Saturday, mainly across western Russia, according to the Emergencies Ministry, which said that the area affected had increased over the past 24 hours. Hundreds of forest and peat bog fires have ignited amid the country’s most intense heat wave in 130 years of recordkeeping. Russian health officials have urged those who have to go outdoors to wear face masks and told people staying inside to hang wet towels to attract dust and cool the airflow. The Russian Health Ministry said hundreds have needed medical attention due to the smog. Yelena Lezina, an expert with Moscow Ecological Monitoring Service, said the level of air pollution on Saturday was the highest the city had seen. She advised residents to stay indoors. Gennady Onishchenko, the nation’s chief sanitary official, sought Saturday to assuage foreign tourists spooked by the Russian smog. “An overwhelming part of Russian territory does not pose any danger and is not engulfed in smoke,” he said, according to the Interfax news agency. But he added that foreigners who are in Moscow on business trips should heed doctors’ advice and stay indoors for now. “If a businessman visiting

Red Square is seen as tourists walk through thick smog on the Red Square in Moscow on Saturday. The fires, which are raging across much of western Russia, come after weeks of extraordinary heat and practically no rain. Moscow stays in a hotel, or an office, or a car, it is safe,” Onishchenko said. “As for tourists, some adjustments could be made. For instance, visit first St. Petersburg, where everything is fine, and then Moscow, when the situation improves.” At least 52 people have died and 2,000 homes have been destroyed in the blazes. Russian officials have acknowledged that the 10,000 firefighters battling the blazes aren’t enough — an assessment echoed by many residents, who said the fires swept through their hamlets in minutes.

Some city residents angrily denounced the authorities for failing to do enough to help the population. “People are left on their own here in Moscow,” said Natalia Lancerot. “We are actually shocked that no one cares about people. They should maybe hand out protection masks.” President Dmitry Medvedev donated 350,000 rubles (about $12,000 or euros 9,000) of his own money to help the victims of the fires, and other top federal officials were expected to follow suit, the Kremlin said Saturday.

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A federal judge on Thursday reinstated protections for wolves in Montana and Idaho, saying the government made a political decision in removing the protections from just two of the states where Northern Rocky Mountain wolves roam. The decision puts a halt to wolf hunts in Montana and Idaho planned for this fall. Montana wildlife regulators last month set the wolf-hunt quota at 186, more than doubling last year’s number, with the aim of reducing the state’s wolf population. U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy in Missoula said in his ruling that the entire region’s wolf population either must be listed as an endangered species or removed from the list, but the protections for the same population can’t be different for each state. Last year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service turned over wolf management to Montana and Idaho wildlife officials but left federal endangered species protections in place for wolves in Wyoming. There, legislators have approved a plan classifying wolves in most areas of the state outside the vicinity of Yellowstone National Park as predators that could be shot on site. Molloy sided with the wildlife advocates who sued the federal government, ruling that Endangered Species Act does not allow the Fish and Wildlife Service to list only part of a species as endangered, and the federal agency must protect the entire Northern Rocky Mountain wolf population. “The rule delisting the gray wolf must be set aside because, though it may be a pragmatic solution to a difficult biological issue, it is not a legal one,” Molloy wrote. Gray wolves were listed as endangered in 1974, but following a reintroduction program in the mid1990s, there are now more than 1,700 in the Northern Rockies, which includes all of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming, along with portions of Washington, Oregon and Utah. Defenders of Wildlife, the Greater Yellowstone Coalition and other wildlife advocates sued the federal government after the Fish and Wildlife Service decision in April 2009. They argued that the government’s decision would have set a precedent allowing the government to arbitrarily choose which animals should be protected and where. Doug Honnold, an attorney for EarthJustice representing the plaintiffs, said he was gratified by the ruling, though he is sure there will be another chapter to the story. “For today, we are celebrating that the approach we thought was flatly illegal has been rejected. The troubling consequences for the Endangered Species Act have been averted and the wolf hunts are blocked,” Honnold said. The plaintiffs don’t want wolves on the endangered species list forever, but they do want a solid plan in place, said Suzanne Stone, Northern Rockies representative for Defenders of Wildlife. The government’s plan was poorly devised and would have allowed too many wolves to be killed, she said. “We need a good wolf management and delisting that allows for a healthy interconnected wolf population,” Stone said. Officials with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Idaho Department of Fish and Game declined to comment immediately after the ruling was released, saying they had yet to read the whole decision. The Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission has asked the state to appeal the ruling to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, according to a statement by the state Fish, Wildlife and Parks agency. Carolyn Sime, wolf program coordinator for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, said Montana has done everything it’s been asked to do in developing its state management program but now will have to apply federal law and regulations once more. “This puts a spotlight on Wyoming and seeing what can be done with Wyoming,” Sime said. The increase in the wolf population brought livestock losses for ranchers and competition for hunters for big game, such as elk. Molloy’s decision means ranchers in northwestern Montana will no longer be able to haze, harass or kill wolves that prey on their livestock, Sime said. Wolves in southwestern Montana will revert to their “experimental population” status and ranchers there will still be able to kill wolves that attack their animals, she said.

Ask Amy: Long-held secret causes wedding woes

Stallone premieres â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Expendablesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in London LONDON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sylvester Stallone premiered his new movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Expendablesâ&#x20AC;? in London Monday after touring two other European capitals with some of his action-hero studded cast. Dolph Lundgren and Jason Statham, two of a cast packed with â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s action stars, joined Stallone at Leicester Squareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Odeon theater red-carpet premiere, lined with rows of fans screaming â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rocky! Rocky!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unbelievable,â&#x20AC;? Stallone grinned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These guys werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even born (then)!â&#x20AC;? Though some might question the vitality of a cast largely made up of men well over 40 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a few in their mid60s â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Stallone said â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Expendablesâ&#x20AC;? was a return to authentic action characters in an era dominated by special effects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rapport with the audience. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that you believe what you see and that guy is bigger than the show,â&#x20AC;? the star said, adding â&#x20AC;&#x153;every generation has to create their own hero and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why you have the superhero, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evolved. But after â&#x20AC;&#x153;Avatarâ&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Stop, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go back to basics.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? The actor, best-known for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ramboâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rockyâ&#x20AC;? wrote, directed and starred in the film, in which he leads a gang of mercenaries who get caught up in a plot to overthrow the murderous dictator of a fictitious nation. The story serves as a backdrop for countless explosions and fight scenes between Slyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team, which includes Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Terry Crews, former pro wrestler Steve Austin and Ultimate Fighting champ Randy Couture, plus cameos by Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Anyone looking to question the street credentials of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Expendablesâ&#x20AC;? only needs to glance at the former Rambo star himself for proof that the big screen fights were real enough; he had his neck broken during filming. The film hits theaters in the U.S. Friday and then opens around the world.

Dear Amy: About a year ago my ex broke things off with me. At the time, I was six months pregnant with his child. We stayed in contact for the sake of our child. Over time, it was obvious we still had feelings for one another. We messed around about a dozen times. His life has gone downhill since we broke up. He got in trouble with the law and starting drinking more. Recently, he told me he wants to work things out. He even said he wants to get married. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure what to do. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if I can fully trust him to not leave me again. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Confused

ried to him seems like something of an advantage to you at this point. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d suggest you stay that way until he can demonstrate through his deeds (not just his words) that he is man enough to be married.

Shedding light on this secret might be the best thing for you, and I could well imagine that your mother would want to know (most loyal mothers would). You should get used to the idea that your mother is going to be upset, regardless of what you choose to do. You could try to hedge by saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mom, I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Steve.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t liked him since we were kids. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go to his wedding. I know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a good time but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do something else that weekend. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll RSVP to the invitation. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to make any excuses for me â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll handle it.â&#x20AC;? That might be enough of an explanation for your mother, but you should ask yourself if this is really right for you.

Dear Amy: I am a 33-yearold woman who has kept a secret since I was in junior high school. A relative who is a few years older than me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Steve,â&#x20AC;? did some sexually inappropriate things to me. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t involve nudity and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather ASK not get into AMY detail, but it was very inappropriate and made me quite uncomfortable. I never told anyone about this encounter. Our parents were close and I never wanted to cause any hardship between them. It has not mattered before because we would see that part of the family so infrequently that I was able to avoid him. I have mostly forgotten about the incident except for occasional flashbacks that I quickly repress. In the past few years, Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two brothers have gotten married. I attended both weddings but managed to avoid Steve. We were recently sent a â&#x20AC;&#x153;save the dateâ&#x20AC;? announcement for Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wedding. I have no desire to celebrate him in any way, much less be forced to go to his wedding. My mother takes these occasions very seriously and has not responded well to my initial attempts to tell her that I do not want to attend this wedding. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think any excuse (except telling her the truth) will get me out of this and still be in her good graces. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to tell the truth now because our mothers are very close and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to upset that relationship. How do I get out of this wedding without upsetting my mother and without revealing this long-kept secret? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Worried

ROBERTSON TAKES ‘GIVING PLEDGE’

Enriching others’ lives y parents and their friends in the little town in North Carolina where I grew up were always very philanthropic. They wanted our schools to be the best they could be, and they worked hard to get them that way. They worked on our parks. They worked with the local hospital to make it the best. We had two local colleges, Livingstone and Catawba — one black, one white — and the townspeople were supportive of both.” The writer of that paragraph is financial wizard Julian Robertson, and the “little town” he describes is, of course, Salisbury, where his parents, Blanche and Julian Robertson, provided an example of philanthropy and civic progressivism that their son took to heart. Just how much he took it to heart became clear last week when Robertson became one of 40 billionaires to take “The Giving Pledge.” That project was conceived by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, who have pledged to give away the bulk of their billions and are asking members of the Forbes 400 list to pledge at least half of their wealth to philanthropy. So far, about 10 percent have signed up. Salisbury and Rowan County are well acquainted with Robertson’s generosity through the Blanche and Julian Robertson Family Foundation, established in 1998 in his parents’ name. The foundation has awarded millions of dollars to worthy local causes. Yet it is just one of many philanthropic endeavors that Robertson and his late wife Josie embraced over the years. Their generosity has supported the Boys Club of New York, funded cancer research, fought to alleviate urban poverty, enhanced parks and the performing arts. Through the Robertson Foundation — a separate entity from the Salisbury-based agency — their financial support has advanced environmental causes and enriched our understanding of religion and spirituality. In short, it would be difficult to name a sphere of life that has not benefitted from the wealth they’ve given away. Robertson’s success as a money manager is an extraordinary story — one that took him from Salisbury to the gleaming financial towers of Wall Street and, more recently, to New Zealand, where he has developed world-class resort properties and award-winning wineries. Yet, wherever his travels may lead, he hasn’t forgotten the folks back home or the lesson his parents and a bygone generation of leaders imparted about the importance of giving back and working to build a stronger community. By embracing “The Giving Pledge,” Julian Robertson has made clear his commitment to greatly enlarge that lesson and extend its benefits far into the future.

SALISBURY POST

his November a lot of good elected public officials — along with, it must be said, some sorry ones, too — are going to lose their jobs. When times are bad, or when voters are angry for any reason, there are few options for them to register their discontent other than voting against whoever happens to be in office. Maybe you heard the story of the older blind woman who was assisted in the voting booth by a D.G. younger friend. “Do you want to vote for John MARTIN Brown or Bob White?” the young friend could be heard asking. The older woman’s voice boomed through the hall, “Which one is ‘in’?” “Mr. Brown.” “Then vote for the other one.” Down the ballot, the older woman directed “the other one,” after finding out which candidate was ”in.” Does irrational behavior like the older woman’s voting choices pay off? Does it accomplish things that perfectly rational conduct just cannot achieve? These are the kind of questions that Duke professor Dan Ariely deals with in his new book, “The Upside of Irrationality: The Unexpected Benefits of Defying Logic at Work and at Home.” Ariely’s new book follows up his best selling “Predictably Irrational: The Hid-

den Forces That Shape Our Decisions.” That book’s main point was that many important decisions we make every day are not based on a rational determination of what is best for us from an economic viewpoint. The new book’s title indicates that there might be a considerable “upside” to all the irrational decisions that we make. Actually, Ariely mostly continues to point out the downsides of our irrational choices and make suggestions about how to make better choices. But he does give some interesting exceptions. For instance, he shows how there may be some “upside” to the normally irrational response of revenge when we are done wrong. He describes why a donkey thief might pass by the opportunity to steal an animal from someone who “is not always rational and … in fact … (is) the dark-souled, vengeful type who would chase you to the ends of the earth, take back not only my donkey but all of your goats, and leave you a bloody mess to boot.” Would you steal this man’s donkey? Ariely: “My guess is that you would not.” Even when there is no social utility to it, the compulsion for revenge is powerful. Ariel measured the compulsion in a “trust games” experiment. Each of two people were given $10. One person is given the option to keep his $10 or give it to

the second person. If he gives it to the second person, that person gets an additional $30 so that he has a total of $50. He then has the option to keep the $50 or to give $25 back to the first person. In the game, some gave and some kept it all. Ariely added a twist. For the people who got nothing back, he gave a chance to get revenge. They could put up their own money to punish the ones who had failed to share with them. For every $2 the first person put up, $4 would be taken away from the second person. So, if he put up $25, the second person would lose all his winnings. Many players took the full revenge. Most interestingly, says Ariely, he measured the brain activity of the revengers. Their brain activity indicated they took great pleasure with their actions — those who punished the most taking the greatest pleasure. The revenge that some voters take this fall may not be in their long-term best interests. But if we could measure the pleasure their acts of electoral revenge give them, we might understand better why democracy does not always deliver the most rational result. • • • D.G.

Another wasted summer BY RANDY SIEGEL The Providence Journal

ith less than one month left in the summer — if it really ends on Labor Day — I need to come clean. I’m failing miserably once again, for at the least the gazillionth year in a row, to accomplish any of my summertime goals. Here is my embarrassing list of things I vowed I would get done and definitely will not between Memorial Day and Labor Day: Convince my son that he has good parents. Convince my son that baseball is not as boring as he thinks. Convince my son that I am not as boring as he thinks. Convince my daughter that she is not the only VIP in the house. Convince my dog that he should do whatever I say whenever I say it, not just when I bribe him with food. Convince my kids that they should do whatever I say whenever I say it, not just when I bribe them with food. Enjoy a romantic weekend away with my wife. Enjoy a romantic dinner out with my wife. Enjoy a trip through the McDonald’s drive-through with my wife without anyone screaming in the back seat. Spend a day at the beach. Spend an hour at the playground, sticking my feet in the sandbox. Spend a half hour watching a show on the Travel Channel about beautiful beaches I will never visit. Figure out who Justin Bieber is and why I should care. Figure out who I am and why anyone should care. Unpack the boxes in the basement from when we moved to our home in 2002. Keep our lawn green with no weeds instead of keeping our weeds green with no lawn. Clean the patio furniture, which even the birds now believe is way too dirty to use as a bathroom. Clean out our garage or at least my closets or at the very least the glove compartment in my car. Organize my personal files. Organize my personal life. Organize my list of things to organize. Fortunately, I did get a few things done this summer. I gained a couple of pounds, bought some new T-shirts and learned that Snooki is a party animal on the MTV reality series “Jersey Shore,” not a form of billiards. All of which gives me hope. Hope that as August heads toward September, and I bemoan my lack of productivity for one more wasted summer, maybe I’ll have better luck next year.

I am appalled at the mean-spirited comments being flung about in public (let alone in private) about the “artistic” underdrawers controversy. I’m ashamed at how some of our community members are behaving as they take sides. There are two sides to every story, and it appears that too many people are taking one side and going public with their opinion without knowing the full facts of the other side. I am not stating my opinion in public about what I think did, or did not, happen in this case because I don’t actually have full and complete knowledge of what happened. But I will say that since this affair has been brought into the legal system, it would behoove everyone to keep their condemnations and inflammatory comments to themselves until the case goes to court and each side has a chance to present their case. All that this hearsay, gossip, innuendo, and downright ugliness is doing right now is hurting people and making Salisbury a laughingstock. That’s not the kind of publicity our fine city deserves. — Annette Hall

Tired of politics

Filibusters are no longer a rarity Scripps Howard News Service

y tradition dating back to the mid-19th century, a U.S. senator or group of senators could talk as long as they wanted until they chose to stop voluntarily or a super majority — currently three-fifths — of their colleagues voted to make them stop. The use of that privilege to delay or derail a vote is known as a filibuster. The record for a one-man filibuster is held by the late Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina, who talked nonstop for 24 hours and 18 minutes in 1957 to defeat a civil rights bill. A group of senators led by the late Robert Byrd of West Virginia managed to delay for 57 days a vote on the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which ultimately passed. Until relatively recently, filibusters were rare. There were none at all in the 85th Congress of 1957-58. After that, the number of filibusters rose annually. The Democrats so annoyed the Republicans by filibustering George Bush’s judicial nominees that in 2005 then-Republican leader Bill Frist threatened the so-called “nuclear option,” changing the Senate rules to allow a simple majority to cut off debate. Republican feelings toward the filibuster changed when the Democrats regained control of the Senate in 2007 and the GOP has since refined endless debate as a legislative tool. The last Congress set a record for clo-

B

ture votes to shut off debate, 112, far exceeding the previous mark of 61 votes in 2001-02. The current Congress may turn out to be even more disputatious. There have been 64 cloture votes so far this year and a big backlog of legislation waiting for the senators when they return from the August recess. Since the Democrats lost their filibusterproof 60-seat majority with the election of Republican Scott Brown of Massachusetts, the Republicans have wielded the filibuster effectively. The newspaper Roll Call reckons that the Republicans have gained 10 victories in 20 filibusters over the last four months. The Republicans blocked financial regulatory reform four times until Democratic leader Harry Reid made enough changes in the bill to pick up the necessary Republican votes. The reason the House has had to make a special trip back to Washington to vote on a $26.1 billion jobs bill is because the Senate didn’t close off debate until after the House had left on vacation. This fall, if Senate Republicans sense victory in November, they will feel they have even more reason to filibuster the Democrats’ agenda. What was once a rarely used device to put the brakes on the majority has now become standard legislative practice.

WORLD

1,100 missing in China amid widespread Asia floods started flowing. “We were dumbfounded by the enormity of the flood situation when we got to the scene,” said Chen Junfeng, a disinfection specialist whose army battalion was the first on the scene Sunday. Photos showed wrapped bodies tied to sticks or placed on planks and left on the shattered streets for pickup. APTN footage showed workers lifting an empty coffin. In many parts of rural China, coffins are bought as insurance for old age. “We’re saving you!” Premier Wen Jiabao shouted into the wreckage, as shown on state broadcaster China Central Television. “Is a child still down there? Take good care of the child!” Hoping to prevent further disasters, demolitions experts set off charges to clear debris blocking the Bailong River upstream from the ravaged Zhouqu. The blockage had formed a 2-mile (3-kilometer)long artificial lake on the river that overflowed before dawn Sunday, sending deadly torrents crashing down onto the town. Flooding in China has killed more than 1,100 people this year and caused tens of billions of dollars in damage across 28 provinces and regions. In Pakistan, two weeks of flooding have killed 1,500. “It looks like the number of people affected in this crisis is higher than the Haiti earthquake, the tsunami or the Pakistan earthquake, and if the toll is as high as the one given by the government, it’s higher than the three of them combined,” Maurizio Giuliano, spokesman for the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, told the Associated Press. The U.N. estimates that 13.8 million people have been affected by the Pakistan flooding — over 2 million more than the other disasters combined. The figures include people who need short-term or longterm aid. Rescue workers have been unable to reach up to 600,000 people marooned in the north-

western Swat Valley, where many residents were still trying to recover from an intense battle between the army and the Taliban last spring, Giuliano said. “The magnitude of the tragedy is so immense that it is hard to assess,” said Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani during a visit to the central Pakistani city of Multan. Heavy rains continued. Rising national anger has been directed at an already unpopular government that has deployed thousands of soldiers for aid but has been overwhelmed itself. Manzoor Ahmed, 25, was one of thousands of people who fled their homes in Sindh province in the south. “It would have been better if we had died in the floods as our current miserable life is much more painful,” said Ahmed, who spent the night shivering in the rain. Thousands of Pakistanis in the neighboring districts of Shikarpur and Sukkur camped out on roads, bridges and railway tracks — any dry ground they could find. “I have no utensils. I have no food for my children. I have no money,” said Hora Mai, 40, sitting on a rain-soaked road in Sukkur along with hundreds of other people. “We were able to escape the floodwaters, but hunger may kill us.” A senior government official in Sukkur, Inamullah Dhareejo, said authorities were working to set up relief camps. But an Associated Press reporter who traveled widely through the worst-hit areas in Sindh over the past three days saw no sign of relief camps or government assistance. Meanwhile, the death toll from flash floods in the remote desert mountainsides in Indian-controlled Kashmir rose to 140 with the recovery of eight more bodies overnight, police said Monday. The dead included five foreigners, but their nationalities were not immediately known. An estimated 500 more people were missing. Further east, thousands of

By late afternoon on Monday, the roads leading to the worst affected village, Choglamsar, had been cleared and rescue teams looked for survivors among the flattened buildings, army spokesman Lt. Col. J.S. Brar said. On Monday, Indian air force

helicopters evacuated 80 stranded foreign tourists from Zanaskar, a popular trekking area. Those rescued included British, French, Dutch and Germans, an army statement said. At least 33 of the missing include Indian army soldiers from a remote base who may have been washed into Pakistan-controlled Kashmir in the fast flowing Indus river, said Brig. S. Chawla, a senior official in Indian Kashmir. He said Indian officials had Before

In North Korea, some 10,000 people were sheltering in public buildings in the border city of Sinuiju near China due to flooding, the Red Cross said Monday. Flash floods destroyed thousands of homes across the impoverished country, and the Amnok River had recorded its highest water level in 15 years, the Red Cross said.

ZHOUQU, China (AP) — Rescuers lifted muddy bodies into trucks, and aid convoys choked the road into the remote Chinese town where hundreds died and more than 1,100 were missing Monday from landslides caused by heavy rain that has flooded swaths of Asia and spread misery to millions. In Pakistan, the United Nations said the government’s estimate of 13.8 million people affected by the country’s worst-ever floods exceeded the combined total of three recent megadisasters — the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Rescuers in mountainous Indian-controlled Kashmir raced to rescue dozens of stranded foreign trekkers and find 500 people still missing in flash floods that have killed 140. In China, the death toll jumped to 337 late Monday after Sunday’s landslides in the northwestern province of Gansu — the deadliest incident so far in the country’s worst flooding in a decade. A debrisblocked swollen river burst, swamping entire mountain villages in the county seat of Zhouqu and ripping homes from their foundations. “There were some, but very few, survivors. Most of them are dead, crushed into the earth,” said survivor Guo Wentao. Associated Press Television News showed the bodies of his younger brother and sister, wrapped in quilts, being carried away on a stretcher as crying relatives followed. The government said 1,148 were missing Monday night. About 45,000 were evacuated. It was not known how many of the missing were in danger or simply out of contact as workers rushed to restore communications in the area, where one-third of residents are ethnic Tibetan. More rain is expected in the region over the next three days, the China Meteorological Administration said. On Monday evening, clouds were building ominously over the mountains where the mud

North Korea fires artillery near disputed sea border SEOUL, South Korea (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; North Korea fired about 110 rounds of artillery Monday near its disputed sea border with South Korea, the Southâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s military said, amid high tension over the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship blamed on North Korea. The firing came shortly after South Korea ended five-day naval drills off the west coast that the North called a rehearsal for an invasion, vowing to retaliate. All the artillery shells harmlessly landed into the Northâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waters and caused no damage to the South, a South Korean Joint Chief of Staff officer said on condition of anonymity, citing department policy. South Korea considered the firing to be part of a military drill by North Korea but still bolstered its military readiness against further provocation, the officer said. The South also warned Pyongyang over the firing by naval radio, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was their way of saying â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll respond to military drills with military drills,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? said Yang Moo-jin, a professor at Seoulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University of North Korean studies.

hit a target less than half the size of a dartboard. The drill is about as wide as a grapefruit, and the target now lies less than 100 feet away. If John Wright misses, BP engineers will pull the drill bit up, pour concrete in the off-track hole and then try again. Wright is 40-for-40, though, having helped cap wells across the world in four decades of work. And he seemed confident in a June video put out by BP that he could make it 41-for-41. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out of 40 relief wells that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve drilled, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never missed yet,â&#x20AC;?

Work began during the weekend to finish drilling the well, and company and government officials say they could hit their target as early as Friday. If it hits, engineers will perform a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bottom killâ&#x20AC;? by pouring in mud and cement to permanently seal the blown-out well thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spewed an estimated 207 million gallons since April.

tions. One question that arose Sunday was just how much information they need â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from the ground, from the fighters, from the hijacked pilots and from the terrorists â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and whether fewer, simpler messages might be better than the flood of communication the exercise generated.

Arkansas doctor mastermind of bomb attack LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A federal jury on Monday convicted an Arkansas doctor of masterminding a bombing attack against the head of the state medical board last year, despite the absence of forensic evidence tying the defendant to the crime. Dr. Randeep Mann could be sentenced to life in prison for his role in the attack on Dr. Trent Pierce outside of Pierceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Memphis

home on Feb. 4, 2009. Prosecutors say Mann was bitter at the board for repeatedly sanctioning him for over-prescribing prescription pain medication, so he decided to exact revenge on Pierce. They told jurors they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe Mann planted the bomb in Pierceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driveway, disfiguring and partially blinding Pierce, but that they believe Mann put someone else up to it. They havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t charged anyone with planting the bomb. Prosecutors admitted during the trial that extensive testing of materials taken from the crime scene â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a spare tire, a hand grenade, duct tape and a piece of string used to pull the pin â&#x20AC;&#x201D; showed no match to materials found in and around Mannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pope County home some 200 miles away. So they relied on witness testimony about Mannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anger toward the board and his propensity for collecting military-grade weaponry to convince jurors Mann planned the attack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this case, it was difficult. However, we had a lot more evidence than just forensic evidence,â&#x20AC;? assistant U.S. attorney Karen Whatley said after the jury convicted Mann of seven of the eight charges he faced, including the most serious â&#x20AC;&#x201D; using a weapon of mass destruction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to have forensic evidence every time you try a case, and I think the jury understood that.â&#x20AC;?

Russia, NORAD shadow jet across Pacific in hijack drill OVER THE PACIFIC OCEAN (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In a historic first for Cold War adversaries, U.S., Canadian and Russian military officers directed fighter jets and ground controllers to test how well they could track an international terrorist hijacking over the Pacific Ocean. A chartered American jet code-named Fencing 1220 sent a mock distress signal shortly after taking off from Anchorage, Alaska, on Sunday, triggering a pursuit by at least seven fighters and a flurry of radio and telephone calls between military and civilian officials on both sides of the Pacific. The Associated Press had exclusive access to Fencing 1220, a plush executive-style Gulfstream whose passengers included a Russian Air Force colonel and a senior commander of the North American Aerospace Defense Command, the joint U.S.-Canadian command that patrols MANN the skies over North America. Their goal: to ensure that two militaries still distrustful of each other can work effectively tackling a terror threat that worries both na-

PHOENIX (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Federal agents on Monday captured one of two inmates who escaped from an Arizona prison as he walked, armed with a handgun and a hitchhiking sign, in Wyoming, and were still hunting for the other fugitive and a suspected accomplice. Convicted killer Tracy Province told authorities he was relieved that the manhunt was over for him when he was arrested around 6:20 a.m. in Meeteetse, Wyo., about 60 miles outside of Yellowstone National Park, said David Gonzales, the U.S. Marshal for Arizona. The other inmate, John McCluskey, as well as suspected accomplice Casslyn Welch, were still on the lam. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They consider themselves as Bonnie and Clyde,â&#x20AC;? Gonzales said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is very, very serious business.â&#x20AC;? Gonzales said agents were working on leads in Wyoming. He said they believed that McCluskey and Welch were no longer in tourist-packed Yellowstone, where more than 100 armed park rangers were patrolling amid an estimated 30,000 campers and tourists.

YourSports Stout wins national title in shot put/3B

August 10, 2010

SALISBURY POST

Baseball standout Eric Tyler, a rising sophomore at South Rowan, has been named to the 18-man roster for the Middle Atlantic Region all-stars and will compete for a spot on Team USA’s 16-under team. Ten regional all-star teams will compete in a tournament next month at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, and a 40-man national team that will represent the U.S. in international competition will be selected.

Tyler is a dynamic catcher. He can also play at shortstop or in the outfield. Tyler opened his freshman season on the South jayvee team. He made his varsity debut at Mount Pleasant in South’s third game, going 2-for-3 at the plate and throwing out the only two runners who tried to steal. By South’s seventh game, he was with the varsity to stay. He hit two homers and finished with a .324 batting average, 25 runs and 21 RBIs. Tyler (5-foot-9, 160 pounds) played for the Charlotte MegaStars showcase team this summer.

Pristine facility for camp

BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press

BY MIKE CRANSTON CHARLOTTE — NASCAR will open the 2011 Chase for the Sprint Cup championship at Chicagoland Speedway, shifting the start of its title-deciding format to the second largest media market the series serves. “I can’t think of a better market than Chicago and the Chicagoland area to kick off NASCAR’s version of the playoffs,” track president Craig Rust said in an announcement made Monday in Chicago with NASCAR officials, current series points leader Kevin Harvick and defending race winner David Reutimann. It was the first major change officially confirmed in what’s expected to be several significant shifts to the 2011 Sprint Cup schedule. Kansas Speedway and Kentucky Speedway have both called Tuesday news conferences to announce their 2011 schedules. Kansas is expected to announce the addition of a second race date, while Kentucky will announce its inaugural Cup date. Based on the tentative 2011 schedule for the second-tier Nationwide Series that NASCAR sent to race teams last week, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, Kansas’ added race date will likely be June 5 and Kentucky’s debut Cup race will be July 9. NASCAR has a “TBD” marked for June 4 on the Nationwide schedule The AP reviewed, while July 8 has a scheduled Nationwide race at Kentucky. Chicago, meanwhile, trades its traditional July night race for a prime spot on the NASCAR schedule. Rust acknowledged that a Sunday afternoon race in September will require significant marketing to compete against the NFL’s Chicago Bears as well as potential baseball pennant races. “You are going to compete with somebody,” Rust said. “You can’t run from it. You have to get out there and compete, and we think by opening the Chase, this makes us a stronger event.” Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR’s senior vice president of racing operations, said Chicago will be the only new market added to the 10-race Chase. It will replace Auto Club Speedway in California, which will lose its fall race to Kansas. The Auto Club in Fontana, Calif., serves the largest media market of all NASCAR tracks but has struggled selling tickets and been frequently mentioned as a candidate to lose one of its race dates. “What we’ve done is ultimately give each track the best opportunity to succeed,” O’Donnell said. “California we think has a much better date for them, kind of back to their traditional date they used to have that worked well for them.” California’s lone race in 2011 is expected to be the fourth event of the season, on March 27. The track drew well when it ran just one race a year during the spring but struggled to fill seats when it expanded to two races and took over the second spot on the schedule.

fled off to mostly second-team work in the morning workout, with Derek Landri and Louis Leonard working with the starters. “It’s wide open because we don’t have any returning starters there,” coach John Fox said. “There’s competition there. We’re learning them, they’re learning us. They’ll sort that out as we move forward.” Added the 6-foot-2, 306-pound Tyler: “Until that first snap against the Giants (in Week 1), you probably won’t even know who’s starting.” Tyler, though, thinks he has a good shot after an up-and-down start to his pro career. A first-team allACC selection as a senior with the Wolfpack, he was as third-round pick of the Chiefs. After playing little as a rookie, he started all 16 games in 2008, recording 41 tackles.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — All the players weren’t even off the field at the end of Carolina’s first practice Monday when the Wofford grounds crew started to roll the fields to get them ready for the night practice. With access to five Bermuda grass fields in pristine condition, the Panthers’ training camp facility is viewed as one of the best in the NFL. It just wasn’t easy to get to that point. From clogged drains that caused a muddy flood to using the wrong sand under the grass, longtime Wofford football coach Mike Ayers laughs when he thinks back to the obstacles they had to overcome before hosting the Panthers’ first camp here in 1995. The first problem came when a thunderstorm hit the night they completed laying the sod. The sod washed off the fields and clogged the drains. Ayers couldn’t believe what he saw the next morning. “It looked like a pond down there,” he said. Ayers got mud and water on his face as he pounded a shovel through the water to find the drain and unclog it. The second incident involved a company delivering the wrong sand to use under the grass. Pebbles and shells in the sand eventually pushed up to the surface and were littering the field. Danny Morrison, now the Panthers president and then Wofford’s athletic director, organized a rock picking party to clear the fields. “We’ve got kids from all over Spartanburg. We’ve got Wofford friends, they’re passing out buckets,” Ayers said. “We’re down on our knees scraping up the bad sand and the rocks.

Tank thankful for chance BY MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Tank Tyler has a sense of what outsiders think of Carolina’s revamped defensive line without Julius Peppers and two other starters. “I don’t read the papers, but they might say we’re the worst line in the league,” Tyler said Monday. “I would appreciate them saying that, because I’m always out to prove somebody wrong.” While Tyler won’t have much to do with silencing skeptics, the defensive tackle will help determine if the Panthers can stop the run after Maake Kemoeatu and Damione Lewis were released in the offseason. Tyler thinks he couldn’t be in a better place. After asking for — and getting — a trade from Kansas City last season, the Fayetteville native and N.C. State product claims he’s

recovered from knee surgery and ready to shine for his home state team. “I’m feeling great,” said Tyler, who’s been cleared to begin practicing TYLER twice a day. “I’m glad to be a part of this defense. It’s a high-intensity defense. There’s a lot of enthusiasm and lot of passion for defense, period.” While Charles Johnson and Everette Brown figure to split time at Peppers’ old position at end, the tackle spots are far from settled. Just how many questions the Panthers have were on display Monday morning, when the coaching staff experimented with numerous lineups. Tyler and veteran Ed Johnson had been taking the majority of the snaps at defensive tackle with the first team. But they were shuf-

WASHINGTON — It took one shout of “Who Dat!” to get the celebration started in the White House on Monday as President Barack Obama saluted the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. The band played “When the Saints Go Marching In” as team members came in smiling to cheers and shouts for quarterback Drew Brees. Team owner Tom Benson pumped his fist in the air, flashing a Super Bowl yellowgold diamond ring. Obama congratulated the

team, owner and coaches in an East Room ceremony. He said the team lifted up “the hopes and the dreams of a shattered city” in the wake of the ravages of Hurricane Katrina. Brees presented the 44th president with a No. 44 Saints jersey. The Chicago Bears fan joked he couldn’t get away with wearing it in Chicago. Saints coach Sean Payton is also from Chicago. “You’ve got to be tough to be a Chicago guy,” Obama said. “I make some tough decisions every day, but I never decided on an onside kick in the second half of the Super Bowl.”

Astros beat Atlanta Associated Press

HOUSTON — Hot-hitting rookie Chris Johnson drove in three runs, including two in Houston’s six-run seventh inning, and the Astros took advantage of sloppy play by the Atlanta Braves in a 10-4 win. Atlanta committed three errors and had a wild pitch to help the Astros snap a fourgame losing streak. Jason Heyward, who turned 21 on Monday, hit his 12th home run of the season. He became the fourth player to homer on his 21st birthday, joining Ted Williams (1939), Frank Robinson (1956) and Alex Rodriguez (1996) according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Jeff Keppinger’s RBI single scored Jason Bourgeois in the seventh inning and gave Houston a 5-4 lead. That score was helped by an error by pitcher Kyle Farnsworth (3-1) on a pickoff attempt that allowed Bourgeois to take second. Atlanta left-hander Mike Minor allowed five hits and three earned runs in six innings in his major league debut. The 22-year-old was the seventh pick in the 2009 draft. Cardinals 7, Reds 3 CINCINNATI — Skip Schumaker hit his first career grand slam during a sevenrun fourth, and Chris Carpen-

ter beat the Reds for the ninth time in a row. AMERICAN LEAGUE Red Sox 2, Yankees 1 NEW YORK — Jon Lester received key help from relievers Daniel Bard and Jonathan Papelbon in ending his careerworst four-game skid, and Red Sox salvaged a series split.

2010 preview: ACC football Associated Press

The ACC’s reputation has taken plenty of hits since it expanded to 12 teams. The league certainly has plenty of chances this year to shut those critics up. A conference best known for its basketball can prove it belongs among college football’s big boys with a few victories in a lineup of early intersectional games. “There’s pride in your school, pride in your league and pride in your fraternity of (coaches),” Boston College’s Frank Spaziani said. “It’s a tough league, and I don’t think we hold a back seat to anybody.” They’ll have several chances to prove that, all in the first month of the season: North Carolina opens with LSU, and two nights later, Virginia Tech plays Boise State. Miami visits Ohio State. Virginia travels to Southern California. Clemson is at Auburn. Florida State takes on Oklahoma. Even Duke has the chance to pull an upset for the ages when it plays host to defending national champion Alabama. The conference has a 2-10 record in BCS games — the worst mark among the six leagues with automatic access to those glitzy bowls — and has won only one big-money bowl game since adding Miami and Virginia Tech. “I don’t think we’ve fallen behind” the SEC, Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. “I’m going to be real blunt: I don’t think we’ve ever been ahead of the SEC or even with them, to this point. I think it’s in reverse — I think the ACC is moving upward in that model. The SEC has an older football tradition, a little stronger fan bases. I think you close the gap, you get into intense fan bases, intense growth in the interest in your sport. I think we’re headed in the right direction.”  A capsule look at teams in predicted order of finish:

Cushing blames positive test on overtraining Associated Press

HOUSTON — The Houston Texans asked the NFL to reduce or rescind the four-game suspension given to star linebacker Brian Cushing, saying he has a unique medical condition stemming from something called overtrained athlete syndrome. Cushing described the condition Monday. He said the syndrome can trigger hormonal spikes after breaks in training, explaining why he would have tested positive for a fertility drug last September — a drug he said he never took. “I think that’s the final diagnosis we came up with, and a lot of doctors have supported why this has happened,” he said. Texans owner Bob McNair met with commissioner Roger Goodell in New York to plead his case. Goodell said he’s openminded about reconsidering the case. STEELERS LATROBE, Pa. — As the thousands of Steelers fans spotted defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau walking down a hill to practice Monday afternoon, the ovation was as deafening as any Troy Polamalu or Ben Roethlisberger has received at Saint Vincent College. LeBeau was gone for three days while being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, an honor he called the highlight of his 52-year career as a player and coach. It must have been — during that time, he can’t recall missing a practice for any other reason. “I couldn’t wait to get back over here,” LeBeau said. “I told them (his players),

‘I want you to do well, but not to do too good because I don’t want you to know you can get by without me.’ You weren’t going to keep me away from this training camp today.” COWBOYS IRVING, Texas — John Phillips, the No. 3 tight end last year as a rookie, is out for the season after tests that he tore the ACL in his right knee against Cincinnati. REDSKINS Va. — Albert ASHBURN, Haynesworth returned to work as $100 million backup, working at second-string nose tackle in his first full practice. 49ERS SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Former first-round draft pick Kentwan Balmer (North Carolina) missed Monday’s practice for what coach Mike Singletary called “personal reasons.” Entering his third NFL season, Balmer has yet to start a game and has 40 career tackles with no sacks.  Singletary already has seen enough of first-round draft picks Anthony Davis and Mike Iupati, saying the two rookies have won starting jobs along the team’s offensive line just nine days into camp. VIKINGS MANKATO, Minn. — Percy Harvin was absent from practice again eight days after the death of his grandmother. He has missed 15 straight practices, but coach Brad Childress declined to express concern about the length of his leave. COLTS ANDERSON, Ind. — Reserve defensive lineman John Gill isn’t expected to

FACILITY FROM 1B “Things would get heated, and I mean more than just the weather.” As it came closer to the Panthers’ arrival, Ayers said Morrison got down with his ear level with the ground and was instructing Ayers and others of dips in the fields to fill in. “I heard that about 25,000 times in two hours and I said,

TANK FROM 1B But the Chiefs changed coaches and switched from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense before last season. Tyler was miscast as a nose guard and soon lost his job. He was playing rarely and getting frustrated. “I guess I wasn’t the fit they were looking for, obviously,” Tyler said. “But I felt like I played well. They were some great coaches, so all respect to them. It was just time for a change.” Tyler claimed he asked to be traded on Oct. 20. Late that night, the injury-depleted Panthers acquired him for a fifthround pick in this year’s draft. “I was going back home,” he said. “I was more than happy.” The Panthers had been going through numerous tackles since Kemoeatu went down with a ruptured Achilles’ tendon on the first day of camp

‘Morrison, if I hear that again, me and you are going to tangle,’ ” Ayers said. Morrison then quickly called for a break. He loaded up Ayers and a couple other workers in a golf cart and started driving — out onto the street and to a Hardee’s, where Morrison bought. “We had made a commitment that we were going to have a first-class training camp,” Morrison said, chuckling as he recalled the story. “We just didn’t want to disappoint.”

last year. Tyler helped in a reserve role for six games until he was sidelined with a right knee injury that he said required microfracture surgery. “It was a minor setback last year, but it made me a stronger man going through that,” Tyler said. “Some people feel like they’re untouchable on the field. When stuff like that happens and you overcome it, you get stronger. It’s something that needed to take place, maybe.” When Kemoeatu and Lewis were released, general manager Marty Hurney spoke of the depth of young talent at defensive tackle. The 25-yearold Tyler is part of a group with little experience and plenty of questions. “Every year in training camp you have to fight for a position,” Tyler said. “That’s what we’re all doing right now, fighting for the starting spot and fighting to make it a great defensive line when we’re out there.”

play for the team this season after a public intoxication arrest over the weekend. Team president Bill Polian said he expects the NFL to place Gill in a roster category that would keep him inactive this season. GIANTS ALBANY, N.Y. — Safety Kenny Phillips is back at practice for the first time since undergoing major surgery on his left knee last September. BILLS PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Backup receiver Felton Huggins is out indefinitely after hurting his left shoulder in practice. BROWNS BEREA, Ohio — Browns punter Dave Zastudil will miss more training camp when he returns from Colorado after getting his right knee examined. CHARGERS SAN DIEGO — Left tackle Brandyn Dombrowski missed his second straight practice on the same day it was announced that current backup Nick Richmond will have arthroscopic knee surgery and be out two weeks. Veteran tackle Tra Thomas is out another week after having the same procedure last week. FINES NEW YORK — The NFL is modifying how it handles fines for on-field infractions to speed up the appeals process. The league and NFL Players Association announced they’ve added a second appeals officer, with longtime defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell joining Art Shell. In certain situations, players won’t have to pay fines until the process plays out.

Hypertensive happy off meds Dear Dr. Gott: I find your articles informative and filled with common sense. I am a 69-year-old woman, 5 feet, 3 inches tall and 120 pounds. My blood pressure is high-normal. Otherwise, I am healthy. My physician put me on lisinopril/HCTZ and a few months later added metoprolol XL. He later added amlodipine. Each was one tablet daily. I began to have hot flashes and then felt cold. My stomach was upset, and I was tired. So DR. PETER very I started skipGOTT ping the medicines and take none of them now. I walk a lot and feel much better. I realize high blood pressure is dangerous, but what about side effects, if that’s why I felt so bad? My blood pressure is about 160/75. I have a home blood-pressure cuff to monitor things. What is your opinion of trying to control my own blood pressure without the meds? Dear Reader: Unfortunately, you failed to include your blood-pressure readings while you were on one, then two, then three medications. That information would certainly tell the story and would give me my answer. To begin with, your lisinopril/HCTZ is an ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) inhibitor that helps lower your blood pressure and acts

as a diuretic. The diuretic prevents the body from absorbing too much salt, which can lead to fluid retention. The metoprolol XL treats hypertension and also acts as a long-term treatment for angina and stable heart failure of cardiomyopathic, ischemic or hypertensive origin. The amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker that dilates blood vessels, lowers your heart rate and increases the flow of blood to the heart. It is prescribed for hypertension, angina and highcholesterol levels. I cannot determine if your physician has found the right combination for lowering your blood pressure by combining all three or if there may be other underlying conditions requiring treatment. Were I in your shoes, I would speak with my physician for an answer and be guided accordingly. If the only issue is hypertension and you have substantially reduced your readings without the help of medication, I endorse the plan. Exercise, a healthful diet and stress reduction perhaps through water aerobics, massage, yoga or tai chi can go a long way toward that goal and you appear to be well on your way to a healthier existence. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “Hypertension.” Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order to Newsletter, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092-0167. Be sure to mention the title or

print an order form off my website at www.AskDrGottMD.com. Dear Dr. Gott: Last fall, I developed sporadic itching that turned into hives. After that, I felt ill with a sore throat, general weakness and fatigue after very little exercise. I read about a ragweed allergy and its relationship to certain foods. I eliminated them and feel better. Could these hives be related to allergies and food combinations? Is the sore throat and lethargy related to an allergy? Dear Reader: Maybe. Ragweed allergy, commonly known as hay fever, presents with itchy eyes, scratchy throat, runny nose and fatigue but not generally hives. Food triggers include sunflower seeds, chamomile, cantaloupe, bananas and some honeys. The most common treatments for hay fever include remaining indoors when the pollen count is high, taking antihistamines and allergy shots. My guess, however, is that you have a true allergy, which is best treated with total avoidance once the offending substance is identified. Good luck. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including “Live Longer, Live Better,” “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Diet” and “Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook,” which are available at most bookstores or online.

Tuesday, Aug. 10 Much more than you might realize, past experiences have brought far more knowledge than you would have gotten otherwise. The wisdom you’ve acquired will be used to your advantage in multiple ways in the year ahead. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Being the type of person you are, you’re likely to go out of your way tto make sure those in your presence are treated fairly, even if you have to give up part of your share to equal things out. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Anticipating negative conditions can generate them, so try to keep a positive attitude. This is not likely to be the trying day you thought it could be, unless you make it so. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Try to make amends as promptly as possible if you inadvertently hurt another’s feelings. Everything can be rectified when you explain your intentions and apologize for any misunderstanding. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don’t let a negative-thinking individual discourage you from doing what you think is right. You’re on a good track, and you should be able to generate the kinds of results you envision. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Even if early morning disturbances frustrate you a bit, don’t let them influence your attitude for the rest of the day. If you retain your lighthearted composure, all will be well again. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Even though you might initially find it hard to believe, early morning challenges tend to benefit you in the long run. Flow with events, and you’ll end up enjoying where they take you. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Fortunately, because you actually prefer being an independent operator, when those who were supposed to help you fall through, you’ll be able to deal with it just fine. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Although problems in the a.m. might get you behind a bit, keep plugging forward. You’ll be surprised at how quickly you’ll catch up, and you’ll end up never missing a beat. Aries (March 21-April 19) — At a small gathering, you might have to deal with someone who is not a pleasant person. Ignore him/her the best that you can, because this individual is known for trying to spoil everyone else’s fun. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — An associate might silently be thanking you for drawing attention away from a problem s/he has that is quite noticeable once it is pointed out or recognized. Good for you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Since your diplomatic attributes are so well honed, it enables you to enter an environment where bickering is usually quite persistent. You’ll do and say what is needed to bring about peace. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Because a positive attitude is quite prevalent in you, you believe you can control your destiny, and you will. You’ll set your sights high, and not allow anything to intimidate you. United FeatUre Syndicate

If the play is strange, ask why BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

You are defending against three no-trump. The dummy has been tabled with a long suit. What would you expect declarer to do as soon as he wins a trick? Right — play on that long suit. If he does not, be very suspicious of his motives. The South hand, with only 12 high-card points, a conspicuous lack of aces, and queen-doubleton in spades, is not a good opening bid. Today, though, nobody passes. Note also that if South had passed initially, the uncontested auction would probably have been one club - one heart - two clubs - three notrump (or two no-trump three no-trump). Then the lead would have been

the spade two and the contract would have sailed home. Now West led the heart two, fourth-highest from his stronger major. East won with his ace and returned the 10 (the higher of two re-

maining cards). After South covered with the queen, West correctly ducked. South played a diamond to dummy’s queen and continued with the diamond 10. Thinking South was trying to establish his suit, West ducked both of these tricks. But then South took six club tricks to make his contract. Whenever there is a good long suit sitting in the dummy and declarer attacks a different suit, it is almost certain that the long suit is solid: that declarer has the missing honor. So, West should have grabbed the first (or second) diamond trick with his ace and shifted to a spade, hoping East had that ace. Then East could have led the heart five through South’s jack-eight to West’s king-nine. This would have given the defense five tricks: one spade, three hearts and one diamond.
