Which one will help energize economy? U.S. Senate candidates split on solutions BY GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press

American history,” he said. “It was really more so those kinds of classes that helped me in my overall development. There were definitely beneficial courses in the criminal justice realm, but I learned a lot about slavery and the Middle Passage and things that I just never knew.” Collins said he also learned things people who aren’t of color wouldn’t necessarily know – for example, “kitchens” can refer to hair on the small of the neck as well as rooms with stoves and refrigerators. Likewise, he said he benefited from frank discussions about the death penalty because “it made me think outside the box and look at things from a different perspective.” As police chief, Collins is keenly aware of the importance of having a good relationship with people of all races, something he said Livingstone helped with. “I feel like it has benefited me to have gone to a historically black college,” Collins said. “I met many friends that I probably wouldn’t have met otherwise. I and they were able to see that we’re really more alike than we are different.” Collins, a 1987 graduate of South Rowan High School who

RALEIGH — The candidates for U.S. Senate in North Carolina don’t agree on much, but they concur that with persistent high unemployment and lingering uncertainty about the economy, voters haven’t stopped worrying and struggling. “It’s the American people that feel it day in and day out,” Republican U.S. Sen. Richard Burr said. “You can’t judge it on whether Wall Street’s up or Wall Street’s down.” “People just see the American dream slipping through their fingers,” said BURR the Democratic challenger, North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall. Added Libertarian Michael Beitler: “We’ve got to do something to get people hiring again.” The three differ, however, on prescriptions to restore consumer and business confidence and spur an MARSHALL economic recovery. Burr said it will take stable or even lower federal tax rates and less government spending to get businesses growing again. Marshall favors targeted incentives such as the small business package approved this fall, ending incentives to create jobs over- BEITLER seas and letting tax cuts expire on the highest wager earners. Beitler mostly sides with Burr on taxes but suggests replacing the income tax with a national sales tax. In recent interviews with the Associated Press, each candidate agreed the soaring $13.5 trillion national debt is a problem but offered few specifics where to rein in spending. The candidates would like to keep all or most of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts that are set to expire at the end of the year, but that could cost the government up to $4 trillion over 10 years. They agree that extending the tax cuts to some or all taxpayers would generate more spending and jobs, which could in turn create more tax revenues that would narrow the budget deficit. Congress recessed last weekend until after Election Day without considering the tax cuts, leaving the decision to the lame-duck session or possibly 2011. Like President Obama and most Democratic leaders, Marshall wants the cuts extended for everyone but the rich. She wasn’t wedded to Obama’s suggested cutoff at households making $250,000 annually, which could save $700 billion compared to extending all of the taxes. “What the real number is, where it should

School board: Candidates for North seat have varied backgrounds BY SARAH CAMPBELL

The race for the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education North area seat includes three candidates with varying ideas, qualifications and backgrounds. Richard Miller, Craig Pierce and W.F. Owens will face off for the spot currently held by Karen Carpenter, who is not seeking re-election. Miller, 61, said his belief that public schools are the backbone of democracy led him to run. “I want to do my part to improve public education which will serve to preserve our democracy,” he said.

[|xbIAHD y0 0 1rzu

Pierce, 55, said being on the board would be a way for him to give back to the community that has provided him the tools to start and maintain a business. “My family and I have a long history in Rowan County,” he said. “I was educated in our county schools.” Owens, 60, said he wants to provide a different point of view to the board. “The school system is broken and needs fixing. It seems that all of the other people running are of the same

ilk in that they are going to accept failure as usual.”

Qualifications The three candidates come from a wide range of backgrounds that each believes gives him the upper hand against his opponents. Miller said working at varying levels of public education throughout the past four decades has given him the perspective needed for the job. He has taught middle school, directed an adult literacy program in prison and served as an advocate for public education. “I have also been a parent and community activist working to sup-

port public schools,” he said. “My professional and parental experiences have provided a very broad vision of the needs and demands of public education students and systems.” Pierce said his experience in the business world gives him the edge. “I started and worked to grow a business in this community for many years,” he said. “This has given me the knowledge of when to be conservative and when to take advantage of opportunities. “We currently struggle with tough economic conditions, but these will get better and when they do, I hope to seize opportunities to

make the school system the best it can be.” Owens said he doesn’t have any particular qualifications to serve on the board, but doesn’t feel he needs any. “I don’t think anybody can do any worse than is already being done, so qualified or not, I couldn’t be doing any worse than what’s ‘passing’ for the job now,” he said. “I am willing to do whatever it takes to reduce cost and improve quality of education.”

ational 4-H week is here, Oct. 3-9. To celebrate, Rowan County 4-H will be joining millions of young people across the nation to become scientists during the third annual 4-H National Youth Science Day on Wednesday. In this year's experiment, 4H2O, youth will learn about carbon dioxide and discover how we as a nation can reduce our environmental imSARA pact. DRAKE This year’s National Science Experiment is designed to engage youth around the country in asking the question: Why is water quality important and why is it important to understand it now? Water quality is a term used to describe the chemical, physical, and biological characteristics of water. Today, as our population evolves, we face a growing concern that our sources of clean water are becoming contaminated by warming temperatures, carbon dioxide emissions and dangerous run off. These changes in the water quality affect not only our drinking water supply, but also the natural habitats of aquatic plants, animals and organisms.

New name of familiar old store is okey dokey with him “Dark Shadows� as a part of the wedding reception music. Esther is unique in her view of life; she is not found within the “average� part of the bell curve. She is sometimes surprising with her thoughts on things, but when reflecting on what she has said, one says to himself “This makes sense also!� In her second marriage, Esther is happily married to Richard. Every once in a while, we will catch up with each other on the telephone. At one time, I was quite used to the name for the old store being O.O.Rufty’s, but if someone were to ask me my opinion of its current name, my response would be the same as that favorite phrase used by my old friend: “Okey dokey!�

early 1970s when she was there after suffering a mild heart attack. When we were leaving, with Dr. Marsh standing there, Esther said “Don’t let the doctor get frisky!� I remember Dr. Marsh having a wonderful laugh from this, and it also generated a laugh from my mother, along with, I’m sure, those healing properties that are always said to be associated with a laugh. Esther asked me to sing for her first marriage. I remember singing “Ave Maria,� in what I always think of as Salisbury’s cathedral, St. John’s Lutheran Church. At the following reception, she specifically asked me to sing the song “Shadows of the Night� from the old television show,


hen I first heard that the name “O. O. Rufty’s� had been changed to “Okey Dokey,� the word that immediately popped into my mind was “Esther.� I don’t know whether or not she had anything to do with the name change, but “okey dokey� is a phrase MACK which I have WILLIAMS often heard Esther use over the course of many years. Of course, the “Esther� to whom I am referring is the former Esther Rufty, (now Esther Hodgin). Esther is a direct descendant of O.O. Rufty, the store’s founder. I didn’t mind the change of the long-standing name, because I associated the new name with Esther, and I always thought that Esther was “cool� (and still do). I met Esther at Appalachian at Grace Lutheran Church in Boone. She was, and still is, a member of St. John’s in Salisbury, and I was a member of St. Paul’s, where some of her relatives, the “Sloops� and “Fespermans� also attended. Esther majored in art at Appalachian and has always had her own unique way of looking at the world, not just artistically, but in matters of philosophy, as well. I remember some occasions when I was in Esther’s company, and will relate a few here: One time, Esther rode back to Appalachian with me, and we noticed an old abandoned barn, just off of U.S. 421, somewhere in Wilkes County. I parked and we decided to explore, making our way to the dirt “crawl space�(in this case, one beneath the building, instead of in the attic) below the barn, between the columns of native field stones supporting the structure above us. Esther found some bottles which looked to be antique (all of the Ruftys have a feeling for old objects from a previous time). We resumed the trip back to Appalachian, stopping at an ancient-looking grocery store, purchasing bologna, a loaf of bread and mayonnaise, out of which we made dinner. One July, Esther and I caught up with each other at the Faith Fourth and ate barbecue sandwiches together, sitting on the edge of the Faith American Legion Park bandstand. On another occasion, we watched Salisbury’s Christmas parade, the Holiday Caravan, from an upper window of the Rufty warehouse, just up from the courthouse in downtown Salisbury. Having been in the store on East Innes Street and seen the volume and variety of the merchandise, and noting that every space , even the smallest, seemed to be utilized for the placing of stock, I was of the opinion that what I had observed in the store was the sum total of what could be referred to as “O. O. Rufty’s.� Standing in the Rufty warehouse, the phrase “plenty more where that came from� entered my mind. Shelves of merchandise, methodically arranged, filled the building. I remember thinking that if in heaven the good get to continue what they had done in life, I was sure the combined contents of both the store and the warehouse now paled in comparison to the collection of general store merchandise which Mr. Rufty was busily amassing there. During one winter evening at Appalachian, Esther and I were watching television in the Lutheran student room at Grace Lutheran Church. Not realizing how fast the snow was accumulating outside, we became snowed in. Esther made a pallet in a Sunday school room, and I slept in the student room. Pastor Keck came in the next morning, surprised to see us, but not upset, since major portions of the church’s architecture had separated Esther and me during the night. On another occasion, Esther went with me to Rowan Memorial Hospital to visit with my mother in the very

This marriage may go up in smoke

Dear Puzzled: My ideas involve counseling for you to deal with your depression, a session with a lawyer to deal with your marriage and a camper trailer parked in the driveway for your wife to live (and smoke) in while you two figure out who gets the house, who gets the dog, etc. I don’t like your proposed ultimatum, partly because your wife has already made her choice. If she won’t try or can’t shake her smoking addiction, then the least she could do for you is to step onto the porch while she smokes, for goodness’ sake. Her response to your request is to blow smoke into your lungs. Based on your description of the situation, I don’t see what about your relationship is co-dependent. Your relationship is, however, ruinous to your health. It might help ease your depression to be more proactive in protecting your life. Dear Amy: I just got back from a five-day trip out of town. The day before I returned, I invited my boyfriend of two years to come over for dinner the night after I got back. I told him I was going to make us a nice dinner. We

spoke in advance about being excited to see each other. He was supposed to be at my house at 7 p.m. but instead called me at 7 to say he was at a bar. He said he got caught up in conversation and was running late. I was crushed that he went to a bar after work instead of staying on track to come to my house. When he finally made it to my house at 8, I had already eaten and was very upset by his apparent lack of consideration for my feelings. He didn’t make our date a priority. When I expressed these feelings, he stormed out and said I was overreacting to his being an hour late. The dinner was cold, and now my heart is cooling. Should I try to reheat things or not? — Cold Dinner, Cool Heart Dear Cold: In my mind, storming out when your girlfriend expresses her disappointment is an overreaction. Ideally, he should make an effort to understand your distress, acknowledge the role he has played in upsetting you and ask you to forgive him. And then, ideally, you would forgive him. Remember, though, that people do what they want to do. If racing into your arms after a separation requires a pit stop at a bar, your boyfriend is telling you something important. I’d set your relationship pot on a back burner to simmer and see if your guy steps up to the stove to turn up the heat. Dear Amy: “Extremely Frustrated” wrote to you saying her husband kept accusing her of cheating when she hadn’t been doing anything. I think you missed something. Besides being abusive to his wife, he’s probably been cheating. It has been my experience that when the guy constantly accuses you and you know you haven’t been doing anything wrong then he’s the one who’s guilty. — Been There Before

its benefits are clear. Every day Piedmont Natural Gas provides many things that aren’t always visible. Natural gas just happens to be one of them. It keeps you warm on a cold night. It helps you cook dinner. And it can even wash the dishes. It’s one of the most dependable and efficient energy sources available, so that makes your home feel more relaxing. You don’t have to worry about losing service during a storm. You can take longer showers without running out of hot water. And there are even natural gas generators that can keep refrigerators, lights and air conditioners working in the middle of a power outage. It’s a product so trusted that several of the country’s most critical buildings rely on natural gas, including the Pentagon, the White House and the Capitol building. It’s also one of the fastest-growing energy sources in the marketplace, now providing onefourth of the nation’s energy. And those 69 million customers are actually helping the environment by choosing natural gas. The average natural gas home emits 46% less carbon than an allelectric home. So the air enjoys fewer harmful emissions and you can enjoy a cozy fire without any soot or ashes. But whether you’re curled up by the fire or grilling out with friends, as a Piedmont Natural Gas customer you’ll

also support a primarily domestic product. More than 98% of the gas we use in the United States comes from North America, which helps make the distribution efficient as well. According to the Department of Energy, only 10% of natural gas energy is lost in its journey to your home, while electricity loses almost 65% of its useful energy. Natural gas also heats water twice as fast as electricity using half the energy. And on average, you can dry two loads of laundry with a gas dryer for what it costs to dry one load of laundry in an electric dryer. Not to mention that’s less work for you. Natural gas appliances come with efficiencies built-in. Gas range burners respond instantly, deliver precise heat and take less time to clean. Chefs worldwide prefer the accurate cooking that a gas range offers. Even maintenance is easy because all of our customers enjoy access to our Service Plus program with expert technicians who take care of things like installation and service of most natural gas products. We’re a company as dependable as the product we deliver. Recognizing that being visible isn’t nearly as important as being there. So while you still can’t see our product, its advantages are no longer hidden. And that’s definitely something you should see for yourself.

Losing Your Medicare Advantage Plan, Dec. 31?


Dear Amy: My wife and I have been married for 26 years. When we met, she was a nurse and I was a law enforcement officer, and we both smoked. Eight years ago, after smoking for 43 years and being diagnosed with emphysema, I was able to quit smoking on my third try. My wife has refused to quit smoking in the house, even though she knows what it is doing to my health. ASK Her attiAMY tude is that she smoked when we met, dated and married, so she sees no reason to stop now. I feel that she is inconsiderate and disrespectful, and after being clinically depressed, I checked myself into a hospital. I was advised to refute the co-dependency I was living in and to force her to choose between the cigarettes or me. I want to set up a session with a counselor but am not sure she will go.

My Turn: Robin Scharding

An early Christmas wish and a thank you A

Changing attitudes, changing lives BY SARAH KELLER-BOYD For the Salisbury Post

uring this week, the National Alliance on Mental (NAMI) recognizes Mental Illness Awareness Week. According to NAMI, one in five U. S. citizens is affected by mental illness. Serious mental illnesses are more common than cancer, diabetes and heart disease and are the No. 1 reason for hospital admissions nationwide. Serious mental illnesses have been scientifically proven to be highly treatable illnesses of the brain. Scientific research is producing tremendous breakthroughs and understanding of mental illnesses, resulting in more effective treatments that allow people to reclaim full and productive lives. Misunderstandings exist about many mental illnesses, and our social culture often wrongly imposes stigma on them. Living with mental illness is not easy and, as a person who lives with mental illness, I know the challenges faced by my peers. Mental illness has no boundaries when it comes to race, sex, religion or socioeconomic background. When mental illness strikes, life is changed forever: Dreams are shattered, hope is lost and a person is left with a complicated mix of thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Families and friends are affected also as denial of the diagnosis and grief for what is lost prevents acceptance of a diagnosis from taking place. It is difficult to comprehend how life will continue and what must be done to recover. Feelings of guilt and blame for the illness must be overcome. Individuals living with mental illness must learn mental illnesses are caused by chemical imbalances, biological, genetic and environmental factors. Family members and the community in general need to understand that mental illnesses are not the result of poor parenting, poor character, or poor morals. Mental illness can be treated with therapy and medication. Although there is no known cure for mental illness at this time, recovery can take place with proper treatment. Recovery is an individualized process that begins with learning coping skills for dealing with everyday challenges. Challenges vary and can range from getting out of bed or keeping a doctor’s appointment to something more demanding such as giving a speech. Recovery requires a person to become aware of their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs and look for positive ways to meet them. As ways are found to deal with life’s adversities, new beginnings take place. Old ways are put aside and new ways emerge. Darkness and despair give way to light; guilt and self-blame give way to freedom. The result is better life choices being made. Relapses resulting in unnecessary hospitalizations can be avoided. It takes a change of attitude to change life. Sometimes that change must begin with the person with a mental illness. Sometimes that change must begin with family, friends, or acquaintances. Overcoming mental illness requires strength, courage and perseverance. By looking at life and discovering the difference between self and the illness, a person with a mental illness, as well as all the people in his or her life, will be able to recognize themselves as an individual — someone who is unique in his or her own way. Dreams that were shattered are restored, and life’s goals put on hold are renewed. The imprint of what has happened in the past stays in the past, allowing a new future. Most importantly, a true purpose of being is discovered. That is when life is changed. • • • Sarah Keller-Boyd lives in Salisbury.


LETTERS The track record Republicans ignore

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)


Letters policy

With all of the Republican advertisements about the budget deficit by candidates and their proxies, Republicans seem to have overlooked something — the Republican years. Before the Republicans took over the White House as well as Congress in 2001, we had a surplus of $236.2 billion, following two years of surpluses, the first in decades. In the first year of his presidency, George Bush and his fellow Republicans managed to cut that surplus to $128.2 billion (remember, they only had six months to do it in). Then they quickly turned the surpluses they had been handed into a string of deficits, totaling $1,675.3 billion during the six years Republicans controlled both the White House and Congress. That was before the recession hit. How? Through a combination of tax cuts reducing revenue by trillions of dollars, increased spending on various domestic programs without any supporting revenue and two wars financed with borrowed money. Does that sound like sound fiscal policy? Any business which ran like that would be bankrupt within six years, but Republicans did it anyway. During the last two years of the Bush/Cheney administration spending boomed, with the financial crash and resulting recession. There’s plenty of blame to go around for the crash, and both parties found themselves forced to do things they didn’t like, including rescuing the financial community. For an excellent day-to-day history

of those days read Henry Paulson’s book, “On The Brink,” available at the public library. No one can say what would have happened if Republicans had left things alone and continued the Democratic policy of surpluses and debt reduction. But if they had, after six years, we might have cut the national debt to around $4.2 trillion, instead of increasing it to $10 trillion. Why don’t Republicans talk about this part of their fiscal track record? — John P. Burke Salisbury

Obama’s presidency: What might have been The poet John Greenleaf Whittier said it: “For all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, it might have been.” The last U.S. presidential election was labeled as “historic” by many observers. We had our first post-racial president. We had a president who was a “child of the world.” A president who had experienced life in other cultures. A president who could identify with all the segments of a divided society and bring healing to old hurts. A

president who would bring our economy back “from the brink.” Instead, we got a president whose background with Reverend Wright comes immediately to mind when his justice department gives notice that obvious voter intimidation by Black Panthers will not be prosecuted. We got a president who bows to the leaders of violent regimes around the world while withdrawing support from our staunchest allies. We got a president whose programs have resulted in more debt for our country (already drowning in deficits) than all before him combined, and we got dramatic unemployment levels with no improvement in sight. “It might have been.” But, it didn’t happen. — Charles Baker Trinity

s I write this, it’s 90-plus degrees outdoors, and I am already seeing Christmas decorations in stores. With an attitude I say … “why?” Well, maybe you feel the same. We haven’t even celebrated Halloween or Thanksgiving yet! And it is much too early to be thinking about Christmas! Please, let’s not rush the season! Well, a recent phone call from Esther has given me reason to reconsider my attitude. For Esther, thinking about Christmas throughout the entire year reminds her of true blessings and brings her much joy on a daily basis. I’d like to share some of her story with you: Esther is a senior in our community who received a holiday gift through Home Instead Senior Care’s Be A Santa To A Senior community program. In fact, she is only one of the 640 isolated or financially challenged seniors who received gifts last year through this program and the kindness of many in our community. In her phone call Esther said, “I received a wonderful gift at Christmas last year and I want to thank the person who did this for me because her gift means so much to me. Can you help me do this? She gave me a beautiful sweatshirt. It is my favorite color of blue and it’s full of sparklies. I love anything that sparkles!” Esther continued, “She also wrote on the card, ‘Merry Christmas to a very wonderful and loved woman.’ I took that card and I taped it to a stand right next to my chair where I sit all the time. I read it often because it makes me feel good. Her name is on the card — it is Katina. She does not know me, but I feel like she is a friend. Can you help me to be able to say thank you?” While I shared with Esther that it would be difficult to accomplish this request since we only had a first name, the thought occurred to me to share her story through the newspaper. Esther and I are hoping Katina will see this and know that she has made a tremendous difference in Esther’s year with her gift and kind words. I once heard that “what comes from the heart, goes to the heart” (Samuel Taylor Coleridge). This quote feels quite appropriate; Katina’s giving heart has certainly touched Esther’s heart, many times, since last December. I believe I can say with certainty that the other 639 seniors who received Be A Santa To A Senior gifts from this community were equally blessed with joy and the feeling that others do care. From, Esther, Home Instead Senior Care and the 639 other seniors who were served last year by your kind hearts and Christmas presents — we say thank you. We are proud to be a part of this community who cares about the elderly and we look forward to serving many more seniors this upcoming holiday season. To learn more about participating in the Home Instead Senior Care Be A Santa To A Senior program that begins Nov. 2, visit or call 704-788-3399. • • • Robin Scharding lives in Concord and is a community service representative at Home Instead Senior Care.

A silver lining in the recession trend that continues. Household production, the study points out, reinforces a sense of solidarity between spouses and also between parents and children. Homeproduced goods promote a happy marriage and family life. Bottom line: Thrifty couples are the happiest. The study concludes: “Insofar as the current recession has encouraged Americans to shed consumer debt and acquire assets, it may be fostering an ethic of thrift that is redounding to the benefit of married couples. That is, couples who have turned away from spending money they do not have and towards saving money around which they can build a shared future together appear well-positioned to enjoy more than a healthy bank account.” Sure looks like a silver lining to me.

Dear Tisha: Try pretreating the tinged sections with Dawn dish liquid. Rinse, add 1 cup of lemon-scented ammonia to your washing machine, and launder as usual. Hang it outside in the sun. If it’s still not white, try Mrs. Stewart’s bluing (, and rewash and hang outside in the sun. Be sure to follow the directions on the bottle (specifically the mixing of the bluing and water beforehand). It might be too late for your sheets, but in the future when you get new sheets, you’ll need to wash your sheets frequently and follow the above suggestions. You said you didn’t want to use fabric dyes, but in case any readers would like to try it, RIT does have a whitewash dye that works well on whites. Dear Sara: Soap help needed. My husband picked up a 40-pound bucket of powdered laundry soap. I do the majority of our wash in cold water. We also have well water. I want to use this soap up, but it doesn’t dissolve in cold water. Any ideas how to use this up? — Mick, Wisconsin Dear Mick: If you want to dissolve it outside of your washer, you’ll need to use very little powdered soap (if using an empty laundry soap bottle) or a large container of hot water so it dissolves fully and doesn’t clump on your clothes. Consider the recommended amount of powdered laundry soap for an entire washing machine full of water when trying to dissolve it outside of a washing machine. If you use too much powdered soap in your machine, it will cake up on your clothes, too. Why not do a warm water fill/wash to dissolve the soap and a cold-water rinse? Add the powdered soap to the washer as it’s filling, so it has a chance to dissolve.

Dear Sara: Is there a way to make white sheets white again? My husband and I got some white sheets after we received a duvet and duvet cover for free (air miles reward item).

and the going gets tough, couples are finding their marriages to be the economic and social safety net. As a result, divorce rates actually fell in 2007 after a dramatic rise in the years leading up to it. The report concludes that without question, marital stability in the U.S. is up. • Credit card debt is down. The study reiterates the fact that credit card debt is toxic in marriage. The greater the debt the higher the likelihood that a couple will divorce. Great news is emerging that shows Americans are paying down credit card debt like crazy. Outstanding revolving consumer debt has been dropping every month, down from $988 billion in December 2009 to $865 billion in July 2010. America’s great credit card binge seems to be winding down, and that’s important for the quality and stability of marriages in the U.S. • Home economy is up. This recession, according to the study, is reviving the home economy. More Americans are growing their own food, making and mending their own clothes and eating in more often. Restaurant sales fell in 2008 for the first time in nearly 40 years, a

The study paints a portrait of MARY marriage in HUNT this country using fascinating information on how couples are fairing under the intense economic pressure of the Great Recession. The results are surprising, if not encouraging. • The divorce rate is down. Since the downturn began in December 2007, millions of Americans have adopted a homegrown bailout strategy. The study shows that instead of looking to the government or other outside institutions, couples are relying on their marriages and families to weather this economic storm.

“Technology is the method for now and the future. It is the new tradition which must incorporate the worthwhile strategies of the past. We cannot abandon technology and expect to prepare the student for the future.”

“The school system is broken and needs fixing. It seems that all of the other people running are of the same ilk in that they are going to accept failure as usual.”

“Obviously not. We need to park every bus that we can. There needs to be centralized pickup points that the children can walk to. if I had the ability, I would fire every administrator in the Rowan-Salisbury School System. I would take that money and hire more teachers and teacher assistants.”

“Neither. I think we need to get back to some basic skills in the high schools and direct the curriculum to the point that people at any school will be able to utilize it.”

“Programs that are not mandatory should be examined and if they are found not to be productive then they should be cut. A continuation of pursing grant funding is also vital. We need to develop a good working relationship with our county commissioners so that they will be willing to help (fund and support) make ours a better school system.”

“I think a mix of both would serve a greater number of students rather than one chosen direction. But fundamentals should be our first focus before we move to other technology.”

Owens said his first goal would be getting other members to adopt his viewpoints. Without the support of the majority, he said, his ideas for change would become stagnant. “I hope I will be able to advance enough ideas that others will come after me and take up those ideas so change for the better will be accomplished,” he said. • • • Editor’s note: This is the first in a series of three election preview stories about candidates seeking a seat on the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education.

Election dates to remember

FroM 1a be, I’m open to look at that,” Marshall said. “Corporate execs and the very, very ultrawealthy need to pay their fair share ... that’s an American core value.” Burr said all of the Bushera tax cuts should be extended because employers and small business owners, many of whom pay the highest rate, are hesitating about expanding operations and hiring workers. “In the middle of a recession, it is the worst time to think about raising taxes,” said Burr, who served in the U.S. House for 10 years before moving to the Senate in 2004. “‘It’s time for us to look at things we know have a positive impact on economic growth. It’s less taxes, it’s less regulations, it’s predictable policies.” An Elon University Poll late last month showed 43 percent of North Carolina adults

• Oct. 8 — Last day to register to vote in Nov. 2 election. • Oct. 14 — Early voting begins • Oct. 25 — Third quarter plus report due for all registered committees actively participating in the elections.

surveyed wanted the cuts extended to everyone making less than $250,000, while 35 percent wanted all the cuts extended. Burr voted against a bill signed into law this fall to provide easier credit and incentives to small business because it contained a new $30 billion federal loan fund that he said would harm the fiscal health of community banks and create more government interference. Marshall supported the bill. Beitler, a former banking executive and business professor at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro,

said the $787 billion stimulus package approved last year helped boost the public sector and government jobs but took money out of the private sector. “There is one city booming right now ó Washington, D.C.,” he said. Burr argues the stimulus package, which he voted against, actually increased unemployment nationwide and would have served the public better had it been converted into direct tax reductions. Marshall said she believes the stimulus package is working and was worth the price because it prevented the nation’s

economy from getting even worse. “It saved America from going off the cliff,” she said. All three candidates said the U.S. government departments and programs must be scrutinized to find cost savings. Beitler suggested outside audits of all government agencies that he said would generate savings equal to 10 times the cost of the reviews. Burr called for reducing U.S. government spending to 2008 levels, which he argues would save $300 billion. He said cutting across-the-board can occur in the short term but that the reductions would have to be more targeted so as not to harm effective programs. “I’d think everything is on the table,” Burr said. Marshall said removing U.S. forces from Afghanistan could save $4 billion a month and more through reducing the use of military contractors. “We just need sound fiscal policy that doesn’t drive us in the hole,” she said.

As North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue toured the state’s flood damaged coastal areas Sunday, she said they were a stark reminder of 1999’s Hurricane Floyd. Some of the places that were inundated then were flooded again this time around. “You see people’s houses and their cars, and everything they own probably, nearly or totally devastated,” she said in a telephone interview from Vanceboro, where a light rain fell Sunday. She said she had been in Windsor about a month ago to see the progress made on rebuilding that downtown in the past decade. “They were so pleased and so excited about the fact that their businesses had bounced back after Floyd,” she said. “And now about half of them have been devastated again.” The Carolinas were drenched last week by a storm that crept up the East Coast, dropping record amounts of precipitation in some places and being blamed for multiple deaths in traffic accidents on rainslick roads. About 200 businesses and homes in Windsor were damaged, Perdue said. “Some of the small business owners were there today and were saying, ‘Well this is the second time’ and they actually didn’t know if they were going to stay,” she said. Roy Stocks, a 76-year-old service station owner, says he likely will rebuild, just like he did after the nearby Cashie River flooded his place in 1999. “We’ve done it once before, we’ll do it again,” he said. His previous cleanup cost him more than $70,000 because he didn’t have flood insurance — and he still doesn’t. This time, he estimated the water was about three feet deep at its peak inside his convenience store at Roy’s Service Center, but it was hard to tell. “It didn’t leave a mark like it did last time, but I

guess it didn’t stay around as long,” he said. The water was no longer in his store Sunday, but it remained in his car repair shop. Perdue said she hopes those who do rebuild will take this opportunity to try to elevate their homes and businesses so they won’t face similar destruction in the future. “In Windsor the homes that were elevated ... were fine during this incident,” Perdue said. The North Carolina State Emergency Response Team says much of Windsor is expected to remain under water for several days. The downtown was evacuated last week along with more than 40 residents from a nursing home. Last week’s heavy rain is being blamed for at least six deaths in traffic accidents. Highway Patrol First Sgt. Kenneth Pitts said Sunday that 3-year-old Ezekiel Alvarez died late Friday. The boy’s parents and two siblings including his twin were killed the day before when their Jeep Cherokee hit a patch of standing water, hydroplaned and skidded off the highway into a ditch. The sixth victim in the state likely drowned when his pickup truck veered off the road and into a rainswollen river.

Belk department stores get new logo

Official investigating GOP Sept. fundraiser

RALEIGH (AP) — Charlotte-based Belk is looking to update its 122-year-old image. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Sunday that the iconic Southern department store chain will spend about $70 million to change its logo to a more modern look and rebrand itself. Belk last changed its script logo 43 years ago. The new logo will be all lowercase letters. The first wave of about 60 stores to get the new signs will be in larger cities of Atlanta, Birmingham, Charlotte and Raleigh. The rest of the company’s 300 stores get the signs over the next year.

ASHEVILLE (AP) — A North Carolina elections official says she is investigating whether a Sept. 11 Republican fundraiser in Asheville broke the law. Deputy director of campaign finance Kim Strach told The Asheville CitizenTimes for a story Sunday that Buncombe County GOP Chairman Chad Nesbitt asked for an opinion on the event that raised $300. The event was held at the Swannanoa Fire Department on the anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks and drew criticism for being at a public facility and for saying the money would be used to fight “socialistic terrorism.

Old pro beats Carolina BY BRETT MARTEL Associated Press

AssociAted press

carolina’s dante rosario is upended by saints Malcolm Jenkins (27) and scott shanle (58).

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — It’s been only a week since 46-year-old John Carney was chasing his kids, coaching flag 16 football, attending school Saints Panthers 14 events with his daughter and doing “all the fun stuff you get to do when you’re home.” “But it doesn’t pay very well,” he added. He’s getting paid now, and earning every cent so far. Only days after joining the Saints for his 23rd season as an NFL kicker, Carney drilled three crucial field goals to help New Orleans edge the Carolina Panthers 1614 on Sunday. The Saints signed Carney last Tuesday, two days after Garrett Hartley missed a 29-yard field goal in overtime in a 27-24 loss to Atlanta. While the Saints were able to manage only

one touchdown on a screen pass to Lance Moore, Carney hit twice from 32 yards and again from 25 with 3:55 to go to put New Orleans (3-1) ahead to stay. “He’s just a pro. That’s all you can say,” Saints quarterback Drew Brees said. “It’s just ingrained in him. He’s one of these very focused, very regimented guys.” Wearing a knee brace in a game for the first time since high school, Brees was 33 of 48 for 275 yards passing and the TD to Moore. Brees’ knee had bothered him since he was hit by Falcons defensive end John Abraham last week, but the quarterback said the brace had nothing to do with low point production in an otherwise solid performance that produced 383 yards and 38:22 in time of possession. Rather, fumbles by Moore and rookie running back Chris Ivory — both deep in Carolina territory — along with several dropped passes and missed blocks, slowed the Saints.

Huge win for the Indians BY MIKE LONDON

WINGATE — Catawba’s surprising 35-28 win at Wingate on Saturday was worth one game in the SAC standings and a million dollars worth of confidence to a football program trying to recapture the glory of the recent past. Catawba, if you haven’t heard by now, wasn’t supposed to be 1-0 in the SAC when the buses returned from Union County. “No one,” said Catawba coach Chip Hester, “was picking us except the

guys in our locker room.” If you did the math prior to the game, there wasn’t much reason to pick Catawba. Wingate had beaten UNC Pembroke, UNC Pembroke had crushed Carson-Newman, and every Catawba fans knows all about CarsonNewman. Wingate had lost by a field goal at Valdosta State, and Catawba fans are also all too familiar with Valdosta. Then there was the fact that Catawba had lost to St. Augustine’s at home. St. Aug’s is decent CIAA club, but not a school that generally inspires shock

and awe in the D-II world. Wingate’s also had Catawba’s number in recent seasons. Catawba had lost three of four to the always sound Bulldogs, including a 42-17 mashing at home in 2009, and this one was on the road. Quarterback Patrick Dennis and defensive lineman Julian Hartsell, two seniors who provide more than their share of leadership, credited linebackers coach Todd McComb with a significant role in the victory.


Biffle back in the hunt BY JENNA FRYER Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Greg Biffle is back in the title hunt, and Jimmie Johnson has resumed his normal spot atop the NASCAR leaderboard. Kansas Speedway once again played a major role in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, which got a whole lot tighter after a fastpaced Sunday race dominated by the title contenders. Biffle was the first of seven in the Chase to cross the finish line, pulling himself out of a deep hole with seven races remaining to determine the championship. “Everybody asked us if we’re out of the Chase, have we given up?” the Roush-Fen-


way Racing driver said. “The 16 team will never give up. A win here propelled us up there. Maybe we’ll go do the same next week.” That had to be the widespread thinking as nine drivers left Kansas separated by 101 points. It’s the closest the Chase field has been after three races since NASCAR switched to the format in 2004. But there’s another telling stat that could mean trouble for everyone besides Johnson and Denny Hamlin: Only once in Chase history has the eventual champion been ranked lower than second after Kansas. Who was that? Johnson, who rallied from eighth in points after Kansas in 2006 to win the first of his four consecutive titles.

And here is again, rallying from as low as 21st midway through the race Sunday to finish second behind Biffle. He now has an eight-point lead over Hamlin headed into next weekend’s race at California, where four of his five career victories have come in the last six visits there. Still, Johnson said winning a fifth consecutive championship isn’t in the bag. “It’s early. I’m not worried about who is leading the championship right now,” he said. “We have to get deeper into the Chase to be concerned about who the points leader is.” It’s not Hamlin, who had his first off race of the Chase.

ATLANTA — The Atlanta B r a v e s 8 reached the Braves 7 playoffs as Phillies the NL wildcard team, a first for manager Bobby Cox. Tim Hudson and the Braves took a six-run lead, then held on for an 8-7 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. After beating the Phillies, the Braves watched on TV in their clubhouse as San Francisco beat San Diego 3-0, giving the Braves the NL wild card by one game San over COX Diego. Atlanta will start the playoffs Thursday at NL West champion in the opener of a best-of-five series. The Braves won 14 straight division titles with Cox but had missed the playoffs since 2005. There was a postgame REO Speedwagon concert at Turner Field, and a few hundred fans remained after the concert to watch the Giants’ win on the video board. They chanted and cheered after the final out as bubbly was sprayed in the Braves’ clubhouse. The fans began chanting “Bobby! Bobby!” while watching the celebration begin. Cox had compliments for his team. “We try hard,” said Cox, who is retiring after this season. “This team is the hardestworking, hardest-trying team we’ve ever had here.” Cox’s final regular-season record was 2,504-2,001. He ranks fourth in wins, trailing only Connie Mack (3,776), John McGraw (2,840) and Tony La Russa (2,638). This is Cox’s 15th season with 90 or more wins, second to only McGraw. Cox also had 158 regularseason ejections, easily surpassing McGraw (117) for the most among managers. Atlanta recovered after 115 and 7-0 losses in the first two games of the series with the Phillies. Hudson (17-9) allowed four runs and two hits in seven innings against the NL East champions, giving up two-run homers by John Mayberry in the third and Jayson Werth in the seventh. Billy Wagner struggled in the Phillies’ three-run eighth but recovered with a perfect



“This was a 30-point day we turned into 16 points with turnovers and a lack of execution,” Brees said. “We’re going to save all the scoring and everything else until the end of the season I guess, which isn’t so bad,” Brees added. “We haven’t scored like we’re used to scoring and yet we’re 3-1 and a field goal away from being 4-0.” Carolina rookie Jimmy Clausen completed 11 of 20 passes for 146 yards, highlighted by his 55-yard scoring strike to Jonathan Stewart. DeAngelo Williams’ 39-yard TD run gave Carolina (0-4) a 14-10 lead in the third quarter before Carney made his last two field goals. Clausen came close to pulling off what would have been his first game-winning drive as a pro. He converted a fourth-and-4 play on a rollout pass to David Gettis along the sideline at the New Orleans 38 with 1:46 to go.


ninth. “It’s a relief because you get a tomorrow,” Wagner said. “We knew we had to win the game. We knew what was at stake.” Omar Infante and embattled infielder Brooks Conrad each had two hits and drove in two runs for Atlanta, and Derrek Lee homered. “The bats came alive, which was great to see,” Cox said. “We had much better hitting than we’ve had lately.” Cole Hamels started for the Phillies, and Roy Oswalt

McComb used to tackle everything in sight when he was a first-team All-America linebacker for the Indians in 2001 and 2002. He didn’t sack any Bulldogs on Saturday, but he did handle pregame devotional duties before he put on a headset and started managing Catawba’s special teams and linebackers. “His devotional was inspirational,” Hartsell said. The source of McComb’s pregame chat was the Old Testament book of Nehemiah. Nehemiah was the man called upon to rebuild the crumbled walls of Jerusalem, and McComb related Nehemiah’s daunting task to the one confronting each Indian — rebuilding the walls of a program that went 4-6 in 2009 and was picked seventh by SAC coaches in the preseason. Catawba made many mistakes Saturday, but it played with effort and tenacity. The offensive line turned in an extraordinary game as far as pass protection. Dennis was sacked only twice on 34 attempts, and the Bulldogs really went after him with blitzes in the second half. Catawba’s defense, led by Cory Johnson’s McComb-esque 17 tackles, also came through. Wingate came up empty six times after it ventured into Catawba territory. On another possession, facing “fourth-and-the-length-ofa-credit-card,” in the words of Wingate’s P.A. man, Catawba’s defense had earned so much credibility that the Bulldogs elected to punt. Hartsell forced a fumble with Wingate perched at the Catawba 21 with a superb athletic play. In the fourth quarter, Kewone Harris picked off a pass in the end zone. There also was a huge fourth-and-3 after Wingate pushed to the Catawba 30. The Bulldogs completed a swing pass and for what appeared to be a sure first down. But Lakeem Perry, Scottie Floyd and Jumal Rolle made a gangtackle a foot from the sticks. That team tackle was one small step in rebuilding the walls at Shuford Stadium. “We made plays, showed some guts,” Hester said. “It was a good one to get.”


relieved in the third. Hudson left with an 8-4 lead. The Phillies scored three runs off Jonny Venters and Wagner in the eighth. After allowing an RBI single by Wilson Valdez and pinch-hitter Ben Francisco’s two-run double, Wagner struck out Raul Ibanez to strand runners on second and third. Wagner, who like Cox is retiring after the season, struck out Shane Victorino, Brian Schneider and Greg Dobbs in the ninth — each on called third strikes — for his 37th save in 44 chances. “The shadows helped, no doubt,” Wagner said. “They could see fastballs but they couldn’t see the spin of breaking balls.”

FROM 1B Like Johnson, he struggled mightily early in the race. But his adjustments were good enough for only a 12th-place finish, and Hamlin’s 35-point lead before the race began turned into an eight-point deficit heading to California. “I knew right away we were going to have a long day,” Hamlin said. “You’ve got to make the most of your bad days and, if this is a bad day for us, then we’re going to rebound next weekend.” So will Kyle Busch, Hamlin’s teammate at Joe Gibbs Racing. Busch had early contact with David Reutimann that caused Reutimann to spin, and when they crossed paths later on the track, Reutimann appeared to intentionally knock him into the wall.




“For Clausen to make that fourth-down play late in the game, that speaks volumes for what I think is inside of him,” tackle Jordan Gross said. A few more yards could have gotten Carolina in range for a field goal to win it, but after Williams gained 2 yards on the next play, he was dropped by Usama Young for a 4-yard loss. Malcolm Jenkins then sacked Clausen. “They were blitzing and I just couldn’t get it out quick enough,” Clausen said. “I can’t take a sack in that situation.” AssOciAted pRess On fourth down from the New Orleans 44, Clausen tried New Orleans quarterback gives young panthers QB Jimmy to hit Dwyane Jarrett along clausen some advice after sunday’s game. the sideline, but cornerback Jabari Greer broke up the play with 8 seconds left, allow- a 13-point underdog. his left ankle in the loss to Ating the Saints to avoid an upPlaying without running lanta, the Saints relied on set by a winless team that was back Pierre Thomas, who hurt Ivory and Ladell Betts.

Big defeat for Tiger Associated Press

NEWPORT, Wales Europe could only dream of a Sunday like this at the Ryder Cup. It gave Tiger Woods his worst beating ever, hit all the right shots to spur on its foot-stomping, flag-waving crowd and kept the Americans from winning a single match. Too bad this one won’t end until Monday. The Europeans already had reason to be in a festive mood amid the rain and muck of Celtic Manor. Bolstered by the sight of blue on every leaderboard, they won five matches and halved the last one when Francesco Molinari knocked in a 3-foot birdie putt and celebrated with his brother, Edoardo. That stretched their lead to 91/2-61/2. Europe needs to win only five of the 12 singles match to reclaim the gold trophy. “In my time — 20 years since I’ve been playing Ryder Cup — this is one of the greatest days for European golf we’ve ever had,” European captain Colin Montgomerie said. “To run a two-point

deficit into a three-point lead was quite amazing. To stop America from winning a match, just fantastic.” Lee Westwood, Europe’s leader in the team room and on the golf course, inspired from the start. He teamed with Luke Donald to demoralize Woods and Steve Stricker, who had never lost in six previous matches. Europe was 4 up when the matches resumed, and Westwood promptly knocked in a 30-foot birdie putt to win the hole. The cheer was heard by every match on the course. More big putts followed until they had a 6-and-5 victory, the biggest rout of the week. “When you’re playing Tiger, you just seem to up your game a little bit,” said Westwood, who is 6-1 in team matches against Woods. “I supposed he’s got nothing to win — apart from the point — but he’s got a big reputation.” PGA champion Martin Kaymer and Ian Poulter held off a rally to beat Phil Mickelson and 21-year-old Rickie Fowler. Mickelson set an American record with his 17th loss and headed into singles

without having contributed a point. Rain again soaked the course, forcing a five-hour delay and pushing the Ryder Cup into Monday for the first time in its 83-year history. Europe was leading in all six matches when play resumed, and Montgomerie walked along the practice range repeating the same message he had delivered the night before. “We know the Americans are going to come out fast,” he said. “But we are going to go out faster.” What gave Europe such a big lead is that it finished stronger. Even with Westwood and Donald making quick work in the opening match, and with Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy winning their first match against Zach Johnson and Hunter Mahan in alternate shot, the remaining fourballs matches could have gone either way. And over the last five holes in each match, they almost did. Stewart Cink and Matt Kuchar were the only Ameri-

Hallberg wins at Rock Barn; Haas overcomes rough finish Associated Press

The golf roundup ... CONOVER, N.C.— Gary Hallberg shot a record-setting 11-under 61 Sunday to win the Ensure Classic by one stroke ahead of Fred Couples. Hallberg finished at 18under 198, tying the event record at the Rock Barn Golf and Spa and winning his first career Champions Tour title. Hallberg bettered the finalround record of 62, set by Bob Tway earlier Sunday. Tway’s round had surpassed the former mark of 64 set by Doug Tewell in 2004. “You never think you’re going to win,” said Hallberg, who became the seventh first-time winner on the 50-

They were 1 up playing the 18th until Francesco Molinari stuffed his wedge into 3 feet for a half-point that left Kuchar and his teammates sagging their shoulders as they trudged off the course.

Haas, who never trailed in the tournament, bogeyed the first hole, and had four bogeys on the back nine — including one of the par-5 18th. He also scattered five birdies to finish at 15-under 273 for his second victory of the year.

BASEBALL CINCINNATI — Reds manager Dusty Baker has decided to go with three right-handers in his playoff rotation. Baker disclosed on Sunday that he will start Edinson Volquez, Bronson Arroyo and Johnny Cueto in the playoffs, regardless of the opponent. The Reds will open on the road next week against either the Phillies or the NL West champion. Baker decided against letting left-hander Travis Wood start because he’s a rookie. Wood took a perfect game into the ninth inning of a 1-0, 11-inning loss in Philadelphia in July. Wood and right-hander Homer Bailey will be available out of the bullpen. Arroyo is the only one of the three starters with playoff experience, having pitched for Boston. Baker likes having him between the other two hard throwers in the rotation.

TENNIS BEIJING — Maria Sharapova beat Tsvetana Pironkova 6-4, 7-6 (5) on Sunday to advance to the second round of the China Open.

Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO — Jonathan Sanchez pitched the San Francisco Giants back into the playoffs after a six-year absence and also provided a clutch hit, beating the San Diego Padres 3-0 Sunday to win the NL West title. Buster Posey homered and the Giants beat the Padres after losing the first two games of the weekend series. San Francisco (92-70), which overcame a 71⁄2-game deficit on July 4, host the wild card-winning Atlanta Braves starting Thursday, with ace Tim Lincecum well rested to go in Game 1.

Near miss for Varitek Rays win marathon to close regular season Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — Jason Varitek thought he had a homer on his last swing of the season. The crowd roared as the ball flew toward the right-center field fence. It ended up as a long fly out and Varitek may not get another chance in a Red Sox uniform. The 37-year-old catcher ended his 13th season with Boston and his sixth as the team’s captain on Sunday. He was working on a one-year contract and “absolutely” wants to return. But he knows the Red Sox may not resign him and he still wants to play. “I don’t know what the future holds,” Varitek said, “but it was a good day today.” The Red Sox ended their season with an 8-4 victory over the New York Yankees and Varitek started well with a sharp single to left-center field in the second inning.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — With the AL East championship in hand, the Tampa Bay Rays outlasted the Kansas City Royals 32 in 12 innings to head into the playoffs on a winning note. Manager Joe Maddon’s team learned it had clinched the division title and home-field advantage throughout the AL playoffs in the ninth inning when New York lost at Boston, and the Rays briefly exchanged highfives in the dugout.

The Yankees and Tampa Bay began the day tied at 95-66, with both teams assured of postseason spots. To win the division, New York needed to finish ahead of the Rays, who held the tiebreaker after winning the season series 10-8. Tampa Bay will start the playoffs at home Wednesday against AL West champion Texas. The Yankees are the wild card and open Wednesday at AL Central champion Minnesota. Red Sox 8, Yankees 4 BOSTON — New York fell

Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — Donovan McNabb heard cheers and the home team got all the boos. McNabb threw for 125 yards and one touchdown, leading the Washington Redskins to a 17-12 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in his first game against his former team. Michael Vick was forced out in the first quarter with chest and rib injuries in his first start in front of the hometown crowd. Kevin Kolb, who was supposed to be McNabb’s successor all along, replaced Vick after losing his starting job because he got hurt in Week 1. So, the McNabb-Vick showdown turned into the McNabb-Kolb matchup everyone originally anticipated. But this one didn’t live up to the hype. Washington had 169 yards rushing, including 55 by Clinton Portis before he left with a groin injury. Ryan Torain had 70 yards rushing and one TD. McNabb threw just 19 passes, completing eight and getting intercepted once. Jaguars 31, Colts 28 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Josh Scobee’s 59-yard field goal on the final play gave Jacksonville a surprise win. Scobee watched his kick clear the crossbar, then ripped off his helmet and started running toward the opposite end zone. His teammates finally caught up with him on the sideline, setting off a raucous celebration for a team desperate for a victory against its biggest rival. It was the longest field goal in franchise history. Maybe the biggest, too. Ravens 17, Steelers 14 PITTSBURGH — Joe Flacco withstood Pittsburgh’s goal-line stand and go-ahead touchdown in the closing minutes to throw an 18-yard scoring pass to T.J. Houshmandzadeh with 32 seconds remaining to make certain the Steelers wouldn’t go unbeaten without Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers (3-1) took a 14-10 lead on Rashard Mendenhall’s 7-yard run midway through the fourth quarter, and appeared ready to win after turning away Baltimore on third- and fourth-down plays from the 2 with over two minutes remaining. But a holding call on a punt gave Baltimore (3-1) the ball at Pittsburgh’s 40 with 55 seconds remaining, and Flacco found Anquan Boldin on two passes for 12 yards and Houshmandzadeh for 10 to set up the winning score. Rams 20, Seahawks 3 ST. LOUIS ) — Sam Bradford threw for 289 yards and two touchdowns, Steven Jackson became the Rams’ second leading rusher as St. Louis won for the second week in a row — its first two-game winning streak in two years. The rookie quarterback completed 23 of 41 passes with one interception as the Rams (2-2) ended a 10-game losing streak against Seattle (2-2) and topped their win total from last year. The Rams defense sacked Matt Hasselbeck four times, had one interception and forced a fumble. Special teams bottled up returner Leon Washington, who had two touchdown returns last week. Texans 31, Raiders 24 OAKLAND, Calif. — Arian Foster returned from an early game benching to score on a 74-yard run and a 10yard catch in the second half to lead Houston. Foster, a former practice squad player, has emerged as one of the biggest surprises of the NFL so far this season. Despite entering the game as the league’s leading rusher, Foster was held out until midway through the second quarter in what the Texans (3-1) said was a “coach’s decision.” Foster took the game over in the second half. On the second play from scrimmage, he burst through a big hole and raced to the 74-yard score, breaking a tackle by Michael Huff on the way to the end zone. Chargers 41, Cardinals 10 SAN DIEGO — Antonio Gates became the seventh tight end in NFL history with 500 catches, including touchdown receptions of 33 and 26 yards from Philip Rivers, to lead San Diego

over the outmanned Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. It was a big day all around for San Diego (2-2). Rookie running back Ryan Mathews scored his first NFL touchdown on a 15-yard run late in the third quarter. Fullback Mike Tolbert ran 16 times for 100 yards — his first 100-yard game in three seasons — and one score. Gates had seven catches for 144 yards. Browns 23, Bengals 20 CLEVELAND — Peyton Hillis rumbled for 102 yards and a touchdown, Phil Dawson kicked three field goals and Cleveland finally held a fourthquarter lead, surviving a big day by Terrell Owens for their first win. The Browns (1-3) had lost their first three games by a total of 12 points, failing to finish down the stretch. But this time, they overcame a costly penalty, made a crucial sack of Carson Palmer in the closing minutes and withstood a 10-catch, 220-yard performance by Owens, who also moved into second place on the NFL career list in receiving yards. Packers 28, Lions 26 GREEN BAY, Wis. — Charles Woodson returned an interception 48 yards for a touchdown and Green Bay narrowly held off a comeback by Detroit. The Packers (3-1) led 28-14 after Woodson scored early in the third quarter, but the Lions rallied for four straight Jason Hanson field goals to cut the lead to two points in the fourth quarter. A final drive by the Packers ran out the clock. Aaron Rodgers threw for 181 yards with three touchdowns but also had a pair of interceptions. The Packers were coming off a sloppy performance in a loss at Chicago on Monday night. Falcons 16, 49ers 14 ATLANTA — Matt Bryant kicked a 42-yard field goal with 2 seconds left to lift Atlanta over winless San Francisco. The Falcons (3-1) got a big break to set up the winning points when receiver Roddy White forced the 49ers’ Nate Clements to fumble away an interception and keep Atlanta’s drive alive. San Francisco (0-4) blew a 14-0 firstquarter lead due in part to a pair of interceptions by Alex Smith. White caught seven passes for 104 yards — including four for 60 yards on the winning drive — but his biggest play was chasing Clements down the left sideline and knocking the ball out as he tackled the cornerback from behind at the Atlanta 7. Falcons guard Harvey Dahl recovered. Broncos 26, Titans 20 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Kyle Orton threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Correll Buckhalter with 1:33 left as Denver rallied for the win. The Broncos (2-2) clinched the game when they recovered a fumble by rookie Marc Mariani on the an ensuing short kickoff, and Matt Prater kicked his fourth field goal of the game to pad the lead. Jets 38, Bills 14 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — LaDainian Tomlinson had his best game in nearly two years, rushing for 133 yards and two touchdowns to lead New York over winless Buffalo. Tomlinson had the 47th 100-yard game of his 10-year career — and first since he had 105 on Oct. 26, 2008, when he was with San Diego. With 12,831 yards rushing, Tomlinson also passed Tony Dorsett to move into seventh place on the NFL’s career list. Giants 17, Bears 3 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants’ defense delivered a knockout punch that sent Chicago Bears reeling from the unbeaten ranks. The Giants knocked out Jay Cutler with a nine-sack first half, sent his replacement to the sideline late in the fourth quarter and limited Chicago to 110 total yards in a 17-3 victory on Sunday night. The win left the NFL with only one undefeated team. Can you say, or believe the idle Kansas City Chiefs (3-0). Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 129 yards and a touchdown against a defense that had allowed 119 yards on the ground in its first three games.

During the outhouse races, this one was quite comfortable for the rider. This outhouse is not all that old, but it is retired as a champion from the Gold Hill Founder’s Day Outhouse Races. Gary Russell, who built the outhouse for the races, decided to take its The old outhouse behind New Zion Baptist Church on Dunns Mountain Road is near collapse and hasn't been used in many years. The outhouse was built to serve an older church here before the congregation constructed a new church building. wheels off and set it on the ground in memory of the races.

hole,� she remembers. She added that “a lot has happened since then.� While laughing, Smyre continued, “Ours was a nice, pleasant outhouse with no bugs or flies. James kept it sprayed and clean. He would lime it too, keeping the odor down. James carried his Bible with him in his pocket so he would go out there and sit and read his Bible.� “When it was cold, it’s cold or rainy. There was no heat, night or day. No fan, but it was the best place to go at that hour when you needed it,� recalled Smyre. Very seriously, she added, “You got a release when you went out there.� Smyre’s daughter, Fay Howell, said that her mother always made her older brother James go with the other children when they had to go during the night and stay with them. He would fuss and tell them to hurry up, but their mother made him go with them every time. Smyre spoke again about their outhouse: “You would dig a hole 6 feet deep. Some would dig 4-foot holes, but we had a 6-foot hole because it would last longer. I had a three-battery flashlight that I used when I had to go after dark. I thank the Lord for what he gave us. Some people didn’t even have a toilet back then.� While laughing and clapping her hands, Mrs. Smyre posed for a photo in front of the outhouse saying, “This is about the cheapest thing you can do is have your photo made with an outhouse.� The bright white outhouse that sits behind Lorie Trexler’s Southern Souvenirs and Consignment Shop on St. Stephens Church Road in Gold hill belongs to Tom Small, who lives in front of the shop. His farm where he grew up used to belong to his grandfather, Thompson Moyle, who was the superintendent at the Gold Hill gold mines. Small, who is 74 years old, left the farm and went into the Air Force, later returning to the farm to work for Wiscassett in Albemarle. The outhouse was used on the family farm and at some point it was moved across the road before Small returned home. The shop was home to a Doctor Shinpock (Small was not sure of spelling) in the late 1800s into the early 1900s. The shop was a home and an office and maybe even a school at some point. Small is not sure of all the history, but he is sure that the outhouse was the one he used when growing up on the farm. He stated, “We used it as a bathroom. There was a crippled man who we called “Crip� Honeycutt because he limped around the area digging holes for outhouses.� Laughing but continuing to talk, Small pointed out, “We never used the corn cobs like some folks, but we did keep a catalog in there to use. I don’t remember if it was a Sears catalog or not. I believe the outhouse is over 100 years old and I have continued to keep it up with a roof and things. It was a

As memories returned to Small, he continued, “We kept a slop jar under the bed. I had to carry it out every day as a kid. The place would stink up a storm. You carried it out the first thing every day. It could be cold or snowing, but you had to carry it out every day. When Small went to school he found out they had an indoor bathroom. He said it was hard for him to get used to the indoor bathroom. “I went to Shaver School the first year then I went to Rockwell Elementary in the second grade. Sometimes the outdoor outhouse was cleaner than the school bathroom. There were always lots of people hanging around in the school toilet. I didn’t like that. I wasn’t used to that group stuff in the bathroom.” The most famous outhouse that I found, but certainly not the oldest, belongs to Gary Russell in Gold Hill. Gary built the outhouse for the Gold Hill Founders Day Outhouse Races about 10 years ago. They started the outhouse races after a terrible attempt at “Cooter Racing.” The turtle races were a disaster. So the Gold Hill Men’s Club needed an outhouse entry that was lightweight and small with wheels. Russell said, “I think we were dead last that first year from lack of horsepower.” Four men ran pulling the outhouse with a rider inside up St. Stephens Church Road into the Gold Hill village. When the outhouse races stopped several years ago, Russell allowed, “We took it to the museum just like NASCAR.” Russell removed the lightweight outhouse from the frame and took the wheels off and set it up on blocks at his shop for a conversation piece. He added some used tin on the sides and top to protect the “memorial.” It is Gold Hill’s “Outhouse Racing Memorial.” Russell laughed, “There was no gold for us or green either,” referring to no gold in Gold Hill and no green (money) from NASCAR racing from the outhouse races.

More relief for split fingertips Dear Dr. Gott: I have had split fingertip problems for 10 years or more but have been able to control it for at least the past five years. As a practicing veterinarian, I deal with these splits much like I do softtissue damage in my patients. Specifically, I treat chronic softtissue probDR. PETER lems much as I would treat GOTT a bone fracture. The prime consideration in proper bone healing is to limit severely any motion of the fracture ends until the bone is well healed. I apply this principle to the split fingertips by taping the sides of the split together and staying with it until well after the splits are healed. Invariably, after the wound areas heal, a callus forms on each side of the old split that prevents a final heal. You can deal with this by carefully trimming the firm callus and reapplying tape across the area. The trimming and taping are continued until the normal soft skin reappears. Depending on the persistence of the patient with immobilization of the wound edges, this process will take 10 to 20 days — or perhaps never if they are not diligent about controlling all skin movement. As for the tape, I find that the very sticky tape on each

end of a Band-Aid works nicely. Just trim the bandage part away. An easier item to use is 3M Transpore tape. I am sure your patient’s fingers will heal if the patients are self-disciplined. The most difficult part is to find medical personnel, etc., to do the callus trimming and so forth. The cause, at least for me, was vigorous flossing every evening. It finally dawned on me that the splits happened where I held the floss to guide it over the tip of my fingers. Since I changed to fluffy, soft floss and was careful to change the pressure points, the splits have been much reduced. Dear Reader: Your approach is thorough and undoubtedly effective; however, I don’t believe that many people will want to wait two or more weeks to heal a single split. This has been a popular topic, and I have received many responses. Some of the most recommended remedies are medicated chest rubs, castor oil, liquid vitamin E, vitamin D supplements, biotin, Liquid Bandage, Superglue, plain adhesive tape, vitamin/vinegar washes and paper tape. Many readers have found that using rubber gloves is a contributing factor to developing cracked fingertips and that ceasing use improves the skin. All of these other options claim to improve skin and heal splits in three to seven days. Just as there are countless reasons for developing

dry, cracked or split fingers, there are as many ways to help. My general recommendations are to keep the hands clean and well moisturized. Do not expose them to excessively hot water or harsh chemicals. Prevention is the best medicine for even simple maladies. To provide related information, I am sending you copies of my Health Reports “Dr. Gott’s Compelling Home Remedies” and “More Compelling Home Remedies.” Other readers who would like copies should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order for each report to Newsletter, P.O.

Dear Dr. Gott: I want to order a Health Report but don’t know what a No. 10 envelope is. Dear Reader: A No. 10 envelope is the most common size. It is about 9 1⁄2 inches wide by 41⁄4 inches high. Read the envelope box, and it will provide the information. Dr. Peter H.

Establish some lofty goals for yourself in future months, instead of aimlessly going with the flow. Make your goals attractive enough that you’re motivated to achieve something truly worthwhile. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Because co-workers are likely to lack your inspirational industriousness, it’s important that you that don’t make any demands on them. Simply set a good example that will be copied. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Although you are presently in a good cycle for accomplishing your expectations, you may fail to do so, for reasons known only to yourself. Stop being negative about things and expect good happenings. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Whether we want to accept it or not, a good rep is fragile and must always be maintained, because errors in etiquette aren’t easily forgiven. Be mindful of this when out in public today. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t be more intent on what you have to say than in hearing what others are trying to tell you. Keep your ego as far away from the mic as possible. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If your attention starts to wander when it comes to matters of a financial nature, you could get way off track and deprive yourself of the rewards you’ve earned. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Forget about your petty desires, and instead concentrate on doing nice things for those you love or for those who have done favors for you. More rewards come from giving, not taking. Aries (March 21-April 19) — A tough goal can be achieved, but it isn’t likely to come easily. It all depends on how badly you want to attain this objective, and whether or not you’ll do what it takes to realize it. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Upon occasion we all can tell a little white lie and get away with it, but avoid doing so at this juncture. Telling the truth might hurt a bit, but nothing like getting caught in a fib would. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — The moment you discover that the course you’re following might be a bit off track, make the necessary adjustments. Your success will be determined by your flexibility and adaptability. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Unless you’re on guard, you could allow yourself to be unduly influenced by what everybody else thinks. Be your own person and reason important things out on your own. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Sometimes you can get caught up in wheeling and dealing when it comes to your commercial affairs. If this is the case, you should be able to improve your position by playing a bit hard to get. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Someone who is a bit jealous of you might attempt to get the better of you by putting some obstacles in your path. You can thwart this juvenile approach by pulling him/her into your limelight. United FeatUre Syndicate inc.

It is hard to find the play BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

Jodie Foster said, “Normal is not something to aspire to; it’s something to get away from.” Not at the bridge table, though, where “normal” is usually correct. In fact, one of the hardest aspects of the game is spotting the situations where “normal” is wrong. Well, is today’s deal normal or abnormal? You are East, defending against three no-trump. Partner leads the spade queen. What is your plan? The auction was straightforward, South showing 1517 points and North making a quantitative raise. First, look at declarer’s predicament. He has only six top tricks: one spade, two hearts

and three diamonds. He has to play on clubs, and unless he can find ace-doubleton somewhere, he will lose the lead twice in that suit. He needs some luck. Now let’s turn to the defense. You must start with the normal play, overtaking partner’s queen with your king to unblock the suit. South will duck.

Updike fans, scholars gather in eastern Pa. READING, Pa. (AP) — Rabid fans of the “Rabbit” novels have been meeting over the weekend in the author’s former eastern Pennsylvania stomping grounds for the first international conference of the John Updike Society. The conference is at Alvernia University in Reading, where the acclaimed chronicler of American suburbia was born. Updike was raised in nearby Shillington. He wrote more than 60 books, won Pulitizers for “Rabbit

Is Rich” and “Rabbit at Rest,” and also won two National Book Awards. James Plath, professor of English at Illinois Wesleyan University, tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that the idea of such a society was nixed by the author while he was alive, but took off when he died last year at the age of 76. Members hope to encourage the study and teaching of Updike works.

It looks normal to return your second spade. However, if you do that, declarer gets home. He takes the trick and plays on clubs. Yes, you get in twice, but you do not have a spade left. Pause to count the highcard points. You have 11, dummy has 10, and you have “seen” three from partner. That leaves 16 for South. Since West cannot have an entry, establishing his spade suit is a waste of time. What about your heart suit? You need partner to have at least 10-doubleton. Do the abnormal by shifting to your heart five. Now declarer cannot make his contract. So, the deal was first normal, then abnormal.

OctoberTour 2010 One of the oldest and largest homes tours in the South celebrates 35 years This year marks the 35th anniversary of one of Salisbury’s most cherished traditions: OctoberTour. The event, which is one of the oldest and largest fall house tours in the South, gives Salisbury the chance to show off some of its many preserved and reused historic buildings. Over the tour’s history, the tour has featured some 135 historic structures throughout the community. Most of these are private homes and some have been featured several times. This year’s annual OctoberTour of Homes begins on Thursday, Oct. 7 with the Sponsor Patron’s Party and continues Friday, Oct. 8 with a special luncheon that features a presentation on the history of the town and its architecture. On Saturday, Oct. 9, a 5K will be run on Salisbury streets, the second year for this new OctoberTour tradition. The house tour, featuring nine historic homes, dating from 1799 to 1924, begins on Saturday, Oct. 9 and continues through Sunday, Oct. 10. Guided trolley tours of the town — a new offering for this year’s tour — will be given Saturday and Sunday mornings. The tour will be centered in the West Square Historic District in downtown Salisbury and will offer houses that are within easy walking distance of each other. Over the years, OctoberTour has featured houses that were in the process of rehabilitation as well as the completed versions. This year, a brick Federal house in the heart of the downtown commercial district will be open in its unrestored condition. Its second floor is unchanged from the 1830s.

Food vendors and entertainment will be located in the 300 block of West Bank Street in the West Square. Check out the artists who are participating in an Oil Painters of America Paint Out. There will be a living history encampment at the corner of South Fulton and West Monroe Streets, courtesy of the 63rd Regiment of the North Carolina Confederate Troops, Reactivated. The homes span the 19th century with the John Steele House – a Federal Plantation residence built in 1799 – moving into the early 20th century with late Victorian and Bungalow style houses. Currently, Salisbury has ten historic districts listed in the National Register of Historic Places, a total of 1,204 commercial, industrial, and residential buildings. Salisbury still has most of the major buildings and elements of a southern town of a century or more earlier: Two courthouses (1855) (1912); the railroad passenger station (1908); and early theater (1915); church structures from 1828; the fire house (1896); the old post office (1913); and a roller mill (1896). Salisbury, the oldest town in western North Carolina, has ten historic districts listed in the National Register of Historic Places and has a comprehensive historic preservation program. Five historic districts that are designated and protected by ordinances of the City of Salisbury. Historic Salisbury Foundation, founded in 1972, is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve, protect and enhance the special historic character of Salisbury and Rowan County.

Fulton Street home exudes Italian style Dr. F.B. Spencer House 528 South Fulton Street Carolyn and Niven Bayer BY SUSAN SHINN For The Salisbury Post


hen Carolyn and Niven Bayer were living in New Jersey, they began searching for a home in the South. “I knew we were going to move South someday,” says Carolyn, whose mom was from Alabama. They searched for a 1920s brick house built on a corner lot, and Salisbury kept coming up. The couple has five children and when a daughter attended UNCC, she came to Salisbury to preview houses for her parents. She soon found the house with the green tile roof at 528 S. Fulton St., the Dr. F.B. Spencer House, built in 1924. The Bayers fell in love with the traditional, fourbedroom Italian Foursquare home. “It’s a neat house because it’s flanked on either side by porches,” Carolyn says, the winter porch on the left and the summer porch on the right. Both porches have French doors with handbeveled glass, and there are more than 3 dozen such doors throughout the house. Niven counted every pane. “You can close off certain rooms and not feel closed in,” Carolyn says. She has carried out the theme of black and white in the summer porch with its existing black and white tile in her furniture and photographs. The winter porch has jade tile and gas logs, one of the home’s four fireplaces. Look for a Grecian key pattern on the floor. The cozy study also has a

fireplace with coal basket and original tile trim. Its built-in bookcases are always a nice touch. In the living room and dining room, visitors will see the home’s original sconces and light fixtures. The breakfast room is on the back of the house, and from here, the couple can look out onto their 1-acre backyard. “We enjoy sitting out here,” Carolyn says. The backyard was the site of the wedding for their second son last summer. Carolyn calls the weekend “exquisite.” “Both the living room and the dining room have gorgeous French doors that open out to the front porch, so that in total, there are four sets of French doors that open to the porch, making the interior of the house almost feel like a portico when all the doors are fully open, which we did for the brunch we had after our son’s wedding,” she says. The doors are topped with small Palladian windows. The living room fireplace is fully marble, with white carrara marble surrounds and a green marble inset. The couple renovated the kitchen by taking out a wall between it and the butler’s pantry. Now they can eat a quick meal or share a cup of coffee at the bar. “It’s now very functional,” Carolyn says. When Carolyn’s mother lived there, Niven installed an elevator so she could get to her upstairs bedroom with ease. Niven is owner of Bayer Home Repair. “If I could stay at home

and work, I would,” he says. Upstairs, the master bedroom, which was used by Carolyn’s mother, has an adjoining bath and sitting room. Niven is in the process of stripping the 22 original walnut doors on the second floor. He loves the beautiful grains that have emerged. The four bedrooms share jack-and-jill bathrooms. There is a six-spout shower in the upstairs bath. The couple often enjoys that first cup of coffee in the mornings in the upstairs sleeping porch that now serves as their office. Carolyn is Early College liaison for Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. Downstairs, Niven has installed a “man room” that both he and Carolyn enjoy. There’s a downstairs guest room with a clawfoot tub in the bathroom, a pool table — of course — and an entertainment area that features a big screen television. After all, you can’t have a man room without one. There’s all sorts of sports memorabilia on the walls, and Niven painted faux tile on the floor. He put in a “very pleasant” laundry room for Carolyn with all sorts of wonderful features, including a pull-down ironing board and huge walk-in closet. He also added storage wherever he could in other parts of the house. The home is again on the market. Carolyn and Niven are ready to downsize, and Carolyn says she’d like to see the house full of children. “We love it here,” Carolyn says. “We want to stay local.” Perhaps their home will pop up on another search for a 1920s brick house on a corner lot in the South.

Robert Rowan Crawford House 402 South Fulton Street Marsha and Dr. Gerred Popejoy In 1976, it took four days for Historic Salisbury Foundation to relocate this 1869 solid brick Italianate home from East Innes Street – the current Wendy’s location - to its present site. The side dining room was moved separately and was attached to the back of the house where it now serves as the kitchen. The 19th century fountain in the front yard was original to the house built for Robert Crawford, a Civil War veteran. Woodwork is grain-painted. Flooring in the hall, dining room and kitchen is original. Both floors and the carriage house will be open for OctoberTour. Look for yellow-ware, ironstone and brown-transferware collections on the first floor. Upstairs find a collection of antique clocks on the guest room mantel. Photo by ben Martin

The John Knox House 303 West Bank Street Nancy and Bill Stanback This 1872 Italianate home, built by John Knox, prosperous textile mill operator, was Lshaped with a gabled roof until 1910 when the owners made it rectangular. Much later it was converted into four apartments, a change requiring sensitive restoration to return it to a one-family dwelling. The façade features round-arched window and door frames, an arched bay window and intricate brackets under the eaves, porch roof and pediment. At the rear of the home are a combined servants’ quarters and well house and landscaped yard. The kitchen features a beaded board ceiling from the 1910 addition and exposed brick from the original part of the house. An early picket fence surrounds the property.

The Jerome House 415 South Fulton Street Kristin and Greg Shields Thomas Jerome, a local attorney, had this 2-½ story, 12-room Victorian landmark built in 1901. Among its notable features are a wide and dramatic wraparound front porch, octagonal turrets, Doric columns, cedar shakes and rough finished stucco. Beginning in 1936, zoning rules allowed for the conversion of this Queen Anne home to a funeral parlor, an arrangement that lasted until 1975. The home was about to be demolished to accommodate a parking lot for the Fairmont Terrace apartments when it was purchased and converted back to a single-family dwelling. Since then, three successive owners have undertaken extensive interior restorations to reconfigure the home. The Shields family took up residence here in 2005 and immediately worked with local craftsman to extensively renovate the kitchen and make structural repairs. Kristin and Greg Shields particularly love to show how a 2010 family with children can live comfortably in a hundred year old home. Photo by ben Martin

The Snider House 315 West Horah Street Trisha and Tim Proper Both floors of this charming 1912 Arts & Crafts bungalow and its barn are open for this year’s OctoberTour. The builder, the father of Mrs. Arnold Snider Sr., applied pebble dash to the first floor exterior and shake shingles on the second floor. He also added the distinctive “eyebrow” dormers. Throughout the house Arts & Crafts and Victorian antiques mix with family heirlooms from the Niagara Falls, New York area. The spacious dining room is a jewel with half-wainscoting, wallpapered ceiling and dark wooden furniture. The granite for the fireplace in the large family room is rumored to have been won in a poker game. Stained glass windows decorate both floors. The barn has been updated with a partial hardwood floor, ceramic tile bar and enclosed cabinets.

The General John Steele House ‘Lombardy’ 1010 Richard Street Nancy and Edward Clement Lombardy, the home of John Steele, was built 1799-1801. John Steele was an important leader in the Federalist movement and was appointed Comptroller of the U.S. Treasury in 1796 by President George Washington. He also served in this position in the administrations of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Steele lived in this house until his death in 1813 and his descendants, the Henderson’s, lived here until the 1920’s. After World War II, the old house was converted into 13 rooms and 4 apartments. In the years 1977 to 1983, the house was restored to the early Steele period and much of the original Federal interior aws recreated using documentary photographs and Steele’s original papers. Some of Steele’s furniture, purchased in the 1790’s and used in this house, has been returned to the house for this special tour.

The Dr. Josephus W. Hall House 226 South Jackson Street Historic Salisbury Foundation Salisbury’s landmark residence was originally an 1820 two-story Federal style double-pile frame house used by the girls’ department of the important Salisbury Academy. In 1859, Dr. Josephus Hall (1805-1873) added a two-story front porch with cast iron oak leaf and acorn ornamental openwork, a gateway arch, and square-edged clapboard. The front windows were also lengthened. During the Civil War, Dr. Hall served as hospital surgeon and surgeon in charge at the Salisbury Confederate Prison. Between 1890 and 1910, the attic was enlarged with a high-hipped roof and dormers. Historic Salisbury Foundation purchased the home in 1972 from the Hall family, who had occupied it for 113 years. The descendants donated the elegant period furniture to the Foundation. A two-room detached kitchen, staffed before emancipation by enslaved persons, was carefully restored and opened to the public in 2006. The Hall House is individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Hamill-Thompson-Kessler House 321 East Bank Street New price: $224,000 In 1899 a propserous saloon owner, J.W. Hamill, bought a one-story weatherboard 1891 home owned by Mr. Holmes. Hamill moved the small home from the front to the rear of this lot where it still stands today. In its place he built a much larer Italiante home with a steep Victorian front, side gables and a wraparound front porch. The Hamill house remained in its original design until the home was divided into two apartments in 1967. In 2009 History Salisbury Foundation finished a top-to-bottom restoration, sensitively incorporating all modern amenities within a historical context while maintainingas much as possible the original fabric of the single family residence. Purchase of the property, which includes the rehabilitated Hamill House, the small Holmes cottage, and a double-detached garage with storage on the second floor, will give a qualified buyer a potential $40,000 in NC Residential Rehabilitations Tax Credits.

Treasure trove of history The Andrew Murphy House 229 West Bank Street Katherine Murdoch and Tripp Clement Katherine Murdoch, the current owner of this stately 1854 Greek Revival home, is a direct descendant of its original owner, Andrew Murphy, a wealthy merchant. The Murphy’s first came to Salisbury in the 1760s. Walter ‘Pete’ Murphy, prominent political leader and Speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives, lived here. On view for OctoberTour are the home’s original deed and family letters dating to 1756. One of the most unusual features of this home is the complete, intact and original 1856 dark green velour wallpaper in the parlor. Note the two-story veranda and twelve Ionic columns at the front of the house. The Andrew Murphy House is individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Above, the parlor features original wallpaper from the 1850s. At left, a corner of the library is devoted to Napoleon.
