$950,000 grant will help train teachers Improving students’ math, science scores the goal Rowan-Salisbury School System


Chris Meacham and Jack Belliveau take off on a short trip around Salisbury as they prepare to cross the country on foot seeking donations for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Their goal is to reach California in two months.

Out-of-work friends plan trek to raise funds for juvenile diabetes research ack Belliveau and Chris Meacham need their own sitcom. Here’s the pilot episode’s back story: Buddies since elementary school, Jack and Chris ramble through life, alternately working and living together, going to community college, taking additional online courses and hanging out at Walmart until one fateful summer day when they lose their jobs at a local movie house and try MARK to decide their next step. WINEKA “Next Step” actually would be a good name for the television show. It was during one of their trips to Walmart that Belliveau and Meacham decided they were going to take many steps and walk across the country — from Salisbury to Los Angeles. Better yet, they would use the walk to raise money and awareness for a good cause. “Walmart just brings out the seriousness in anyone,” Belliveau laughs. “Besides writing ideas down on napkins, Walmart is No. 2 (for great ideas).” In less than two weeks, Jack and Chris are setting off on a two-month trek to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Their goals: $25,000 for the organization and a life-


time’s worth of memories. They’re calling it “Jack and Meacham’s 3K Across the USA.” Belliveau says he hopes the walk across the country also serves as an inspiration to people who are struggling in today’s economy, showing them it’s not an excuse to quit contributing to society. As you might expect, the young men, both 24, have plans to blog, Tweet and update their Facebook page along the way. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation already has set up its own website link for direct donations, and the guys will have a website and e-mail account, too. They will depend on their cell phones, a netbook and MP3 players for music. Solar panels attached to their backpacks will keep all their electronic equipment charged — at least that’s the plan. Belliveau and Meacham will camp in a two-man tent. As of now, they don’t know exactly where they will be staying each night, but Jack and Chris figure they can find places through “crash on my couch” websites, or just ask folks if they could pitch a tent on their properties overnight. Jack says they hope to take the occasional shower at truck stops. Chris has mapped out a route on his computer — one that, of course, must stay away from interstates. They figure they must average a challenging 41.2 miles a day to reach Los Angeles in two months.

Given the time of year they will be walking, Jack and Chris could be facing all manner of weather conditions, including snow, and taking on all kinds of terrain. Mountains, plains and deserts come to mind. Belliveau and Meacham still hold out hope they can enlist two or three other people to drive a support car ahead of them each day to solicit donations and find a good place to spend the night. But as of now, they’re on their own. “We’re winging it, basically,” Jack says. “... We just felt it was time to do something.” Belliveau thinks that two months of walking across the country will clear his head, relieve the constant pressure of looking for work and inspire other people not to give up. “It’s kind of a selfish reason to go,” he acknowledges, but he also hopes it creates a starting point, which will lead to his involvement in other charity projects over the rest of his life. Lynn Foreman, corporate development director for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in Charlotte, appreciates that Jack and Chris chose her organization as their charity of choice. Their efforts and enthusiasm will raise awareness for fighting Type 1 diabetes, she

The Rowan-Salisbury School System will receive nearly $950,000 over the next three years from a federal grant program aimed at improving students’ science and math knowledge by providing training for teachers. Rowan-Salisbury is one of five districts in North Carolina to be selected for the Federal Science and Mathematics Partnership Grant Program, the school system said in a press release. The grant will be funded over a three-year period beginning this year and ending with the 2012-2013 school year. Each year, the school system will receive $316,470 to be used for training, stipends and materials. “Our administration should be thanked for aggressively going after these grants, because

Dr. James Davis, principal of China Grove Middle School, has been selected as the 2011 Wachovia Principal of the Year for the RowanSalisbury School System. Rowan-Salisbury School System Superintendent Dr. Judy Grissom made the announcement to school principals and central office administrative staff during a meeting Thursday morning at the Long Street offices in East Spencer. “James accomplishes wonderful things at his school and he creates an at- DAVIS mosphere of motivation, excitement, and enthusiasm among his students, staff, parents and among his fellow administrators.

Challenger finding little time to take on Coble BY MARK WINEKA


Sam Turner, a United Airlines pilot, has discovered it’s hard to fly passenger jets and be a viable congressional candidate in his spare time. “I don’t see how I can pull it off, being an airline pilot,” acknowledges Turner, a resident of Salisbury. “It just isn’t doable, to be honest with you.” Turner is basically in the air Monday through Friday, leaving him little time to campaign against incumbent U.S. Rep. Howard Coble, R-N.C., who is seeking his 14th consecutive term in the 6th District. Turner is left to writing blogs on his website at He confesses that he signed up as the lone Democratic candidate this year as a means of

introducing himself to voters and preparing for a more serious run in the future, should redistricting change the 6th District’s boundaries. As it exists now, the 6th District is close to a Republican lock. Coble’s biggest challenge, most observers agree, came in the May Republican primary when five others vied for the nomination — Coble’s first primary opposition since 1984. But Coble conquered the opponents handily, capturing 65 percent of the primary vote Today’s forecast 79º/45º Sunny, breezy

and avoiding a runoff. Turner, a first-time candidate, was unopposed in the Democratic primary, setting up the Nov. 2 election. “Hopefully, you always learn,” Coble says of what he took away from the GOP primary battle. What he found most interesting in the primary, Coble says, was that “no one really attacked me on my voting record.” Instead, his opponents complained that he has been in Congress too long and suggested he was “too long in the tooth,” says the 79-year-old

Sisters keep the chuckles coming in ‘Nunsense’

Novice nun Sister Mary Leo tells a joke to start the second act: “How do you make Holy Water? You boil the hell out of it.” Jokes make up much of “Nunsense,” Piedmont Players’ latest musical production. A problem on opening night kept some people from picking up on the many jokes, puns and other wordplay — the sound system was not working well for a couple of the talented cast. A vibrant second act made up for a first act that had some rough edges. The sisters were fine individually, but a little disjointed as a group. The show enjoys the benefit of veterans Becky Lippard as Sister Mary Regina and Jenny Carroll as Sister Mary Hubert. Both have fine voices, and Carroll can hit notes you can’t imagine. Lauren Ashli Hill, a newcomer to Piedmont but a veteran of the stage, plays Sister Mary Amnesia, again with a well-trained voice. Christine Dee Mosser, Sister Robert Anne, has another lovely voice, and Adna Music, who plays the novice Sister Mary Leo, can certainly sing, too. “Just a Coupl’a Sisters,” a duet with Carroll and Lippard, is a perfect example of how well these women sing. And the livelier “Holier Than Thou” lets Carroll really show her skills, accompanied by the rest of the cast. “Nunsense” has a plot you won’t expect. It seems Sister Julia, Child of God, the cook, has poisoned 52 of the Little Sister of Hoboken; picture them face down in the vichyssoise. The remaining sisters have to raise the money to bury them all. They raise enough to get 48 in the ground when Mother Superior, Sister Mary Regina, decides to buy a Blu-Ray disc player before the last few get buried. So the four nuns are in the freezer and the little group is putting on a show to raise the rest of the money for burials. One teensy problem is Sister Mary Amnesia, who can’t remember who she is or much else. She forgets to mention that the health inspector stopped by; soon the health department is onto the Little Sisters, demanding an immediate thawing and burial. The sisters also have Sister Julia’s cookbook, “Baking with the BVM” — that’s Blessed Virgin Mary — they hope to sell for the cause. Problem is, Sister’s recipes

are, shall we say, a little unorthodox. The roasted chicken recipe is funny, but the hot brownies is even funnier. If you can understand what they are saying, there are numerous opportunities to laugh out loud. But the very capable band drowned out some of the words, and that microphone problem didn’t help. A very funny number, telling how the sisters started out as missionaries in a leper colony, has endless jokes about things falling off — try to catch all the words of that song. Things improved tremendously in Act II, although some of the jokes went by so fast the audience didn’t pick up on them. It helps a little if you know something about Catholics, particularly nuns, and religion in general, as some of the jokes have specific references. But you don’t have to know anything at all for some of the zingers. You may also find yourself groaning at some puns. Sister Robert Anne just wants to be a star and not the second fiddle. Sister Hubert wants Sister Regina to lighten up a little — and let her do more, and sister Mary Leo wants to be the first ballerina nun. They are an eclectic group. Jeff Miller is the stage manager, who plays the stage manager in the play — get it? You may not go home humming the music, but it’s enjoyable throughout — foot-tapping, hand-clapping. It’s under two hours, including the 20-minute intermission, meaning a short, sweet night. Director Reid Leonard put together a great cast and they will adjust to the challenges presented, as they did opening night. Nothing in the show is offensive, except for the rare four-letter word, which always brings an admonition, but you have to have a sense of humor firmly in place to get the most out of the shenanigans. The orchestra includes Virgie Taylor, Mike Austin, Emily Schuttenberg, John Stafford, Reese Manceaux and David Wallace, some playing on different nights. Go and help the nuns meet their goal. They’re sure to entertain you. “Nunsense” continues tonight and Saturday and Oct. 13-16 at 7:30 p.m., with a 2:30 p.m. matinee on Sunday. For tickets, call 704-6335471.

Correction • Mary Gillespie will be among the performers providing entertainment during OctoberTour Night Out on Friday. An article in Thursday’s Post incorrectly identified her.

COBLE FROM 1a Coble. “The Lord has blessed me with good health,” Coble says, adding he is able to sustain the physical demands of the job — “and they are demanding.” He argues that he has always been accessible to his constituents and thinks anyone taking his place would have a hard time matching that record over the years. But Coble never takes an election for granted. He says an anti-incumbent mood is sweeping the country, meaning anything could happen. The 6th District includes all of Moore and Randolph counties and portions of Rowan, Davidson, Guilford and Alamance counties. 

Coble is considered among the more conservative members in Congress. He contends that a glaring mistake President Obama committed was making health-care reform the No. 1 issue when Americans were more concerned about unem-

Coble says Congress must rein in spending, promote favorable tax regulations. A return of estate tax will cripple small businesses, farmers, he says, adding Americans are worried about Bush tax cuts not being extended. Supports freeze on federal hiring.

“Lord only knows when we’re going to leave,” Coble says, describing U.S. involvement in Afghanistan as “a quagmire.” As with Iraq, U.S. erred by not having a post-entry strategy. He has “major concerns” about corruption in the Afghan government.

Voted against the repeal of the policy prohibiting gays from serving openly in the U.S. military. Likes that a working group is reviewing the policy and surveying up to 100,000 service families. Most of his constituents, Coble says, are not for repealing the policy.

Turner says the root cause of U.S. problems, from trade to Wall Street, is a political system that is broken. Corporations and unions have bought off Congress, and money is flowing in from other countries which could care less about the U.S., Turner says.

”I think we should start setting the course to get out of there by next summer.” The only way to “fix” Afghanistan is to stay there for the next 20 to 30 years, and the U.S. doesn’t have the resources to do that, Turner says.

“I’d be for repealing it.” Says a better description would be ‘Don’t ask, don’t care.” Turner says he doesn’t think it’s that big of an issue for people in military service today. “To be honest with you, we need their talents.”

ployment, the lack of new jobs, reckless government spending and uncertainty over whether Bush tax cuts would be extended. Obama “put all his eggs in that one basket” and ignored the more pressing concerns of the country, Coble says. Should Republicans regain a majority in the U.S. House, Coble says he doubts he would be in line for a full chairmanship of the Judiciary or Transportation committees, but he would like to return as chairman of the Internet & Intellectual Property subcommittee — one of the few areas, Coble says, where the United States enjoys a favorable trade balance. 

Turner, 49, learned to fly in the Air Force. He is a graduate of Salisbury High School and N.C. State University. Turner says with all the problems facing the country now, the root cause is a broken political system running on greed. He expresses frustration with Republicans who play political games “by blocking everything,” even ideas they would support otherwise. He also thinks his own party is wrong is trying to affix all the

blame for the country’s current economic woes to the Bush years. “This was a 30-year path starting in 1980 with (President) Reagan,” Turner says. He contends that the latest bailout of the banking system was the seventh or eighth in the past 30 years, “but people

forget that.” Turner says he would have supported the $800 billion stimulus package, though its major flaw was that much of the money went to bail out distressed states. He said he also would have supported healthcare reform that would allow for a single-payer system.

walks the 8.2 miles to his parents’ house in China Grove. Over the past month, Jack and Chris have been walking long hours each day in and around Salisbury, training for their cross-country trek. They usually take off from their North Jackson Street apartment and head out of town and into the country, following routes such as U.S. 29, Bringle Ferry Road and U.S. 70. They leave about 3 p.m. and walk well into the nighttime. “There are roads I didn’t know existed,” says Jack, who made a conscious effort over the past year to lose

says. The foundation sponsors three money-raising walks in its region, including annual events at Carowinds, the Rowan-Iredell-Cabarrus walk at Fieldcrest-Cannon Stadium in Kannapolis and a Catawba Valley walk in Hickory. “We have not had anything of this magnitude,” she says of Belliveau and Meacham’s walk. “It is quite unusual.” Jack and Chris graduated in 2004 from West Rowan High School. Jack is the son of Kathleen and Richard Hunt of China Grove. Chris’ parents are Charles and Cynthia Meacham of Salisbury. Most recently, Belliveau and Meacham worked as general manager and assistant manager, respectively, at the Salisbury Mall $2 Cinemas. A “falling out” with the owner may be the best way to describe why they lost their jobs on the same day in July, they say. “Nothing bad, just complicated,” Jack adds. Since high school, the guys have held various jobs and lived together on and off in places such as Salisbury, Granite Quarry and, yes, Alaska. In January 2006, Jack moved to Alaska to live with his grandfather. By September, Chris joined him, and the pair ran a pizza joint for a couple of months before returning home at Christmas and never going back. Of the pair, Jack is the car guy; Chris, the computer guy. Jack also has aspirations to be an actor-comedian. He has performed twice as part of a show at the Lake Norman Comedy Zone and also is known to do short routines during open-mike nights. Both guys have attended Rowan-Cabarrus Community College but are currently enrolled in online programs — Jack in a San Franciscobased arts academy, while Chris is taking business and computer courses through the University of Phoenix. Belliveau and Meacham say much of their lives is about cars, computers and Clint Eastwood movies. The items hung on their living room wall support that theory. Walking has to be included, too. The guys always have shown a penchant for walking. As kids, before they could afford cars, they walked everywhere together. “We didn’t like being closed in,” Chris says. Once, while visiting friends in Mooresville, they decided to go bowling and walked to Woodleaf Lanes in Salisbury. They walked back to Mooresville after bowling. No matter where they have lived since high school, they often walked to Walmart. Jack says he still

weight, having dropped 53 pounds since last October. The guys’ original brainstorming involved a Jackvs.-Chris contest to see who could raise the most money for charity during their walk across the country. But they were surprised at all the obstacles and bureaucracy from organizations they approached about raising money for them. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation “came on board as soon as we talked to them,” Jack says. If they make it to Los Angeles, Jack and Chris don’t know for now how they will get back. “We’d rather fly,” Chris says. “We don’t want to walk back.” They have been contacting airlines to determine whether their work on behalf of the charity might qualify them for a ride home. Otherwise, they will rent a car, Jack says. Belliveau and Meacham plan on eating a lot of Clif protein bars and beef jerky on their trip. Their music playlist includes a considerable number of classic rock songs. “I don’t mean to nerd it up,” Jack says, but he considers the cross-country walk as their “Death Star” moment. And at the risk of sounding like an episode from “My Name Is Earl,” he adds, there’s some kind of karma going on. Destiny led them to this crazy adventure. Now they want to know where the next step leads. Contact Mark Wineka at 704-797-4263, or mwineka@

Good Neighbors gather



Anti-annexation group not ready to give up fight BY KARISSA MINN

The city of Salisbury may have failed in its attempt to annex areas along N.C. 150, but one community leader warned Thursday that those residents aren’t “home free.” The Good Neighbors of Rowan County met Thursday night to discuss the group’s ongoing fight against involuntary annexation. Vice President Carl Eagle told the crowd of about 80 people gathered at the Locke Fire Department that he’s sure Salisbury will try again. “I talk with people and they say, ‘Why don’t you let this drop? It’s all over,’ ” Eagle said. “I say, ‘Do you really think they’re not coming back?’ ” Salisbury adopted a Vision 2020 plan in 2001, he said, that projects the city boundaries at Gheen, Kepley, Barringer, Briggs and Miller roads in 2020. That plan is still in place. When it tried to acquire the N.C. 150 annexation area, the city received 659 water and sewer requests from residents in the area that would have cost $34.6 million. That was a good strategy, Eagle said, and the city backed down. But he said e-mails among Lexington officials say they were told Salisbury intends to try again. Pending a court decision involving a Lexington annexation, Salisbury could require half of the payment for service extensions up front. “As soon as Salisbury can see a way to finance this, it will be back,” Eagle said. He said others come to him and ask why the group doesn’t just give in if it’s bound to be annexed eventually. “I think we can get the law changed,” Eagle said, “and this coming election is a real opportunity to do something about it.” While legislators on both sides of the aisle have supported annexation reform, Eagle said, the best scenario for a meaningful bill to be heard is if Republicans gain a majority in the state House and Senate. He praised Sen. Andrew Brock for his support. Eagle then turned his attention to a more local race. Good Neighbors does not endorse candidates or political parties, he said, but it can state facts about them. “There is one candidate for county commissioner who was a city councilman who voted to annex you,” he said. “It’s Bill Burgin.” He said county commissioners may end up with some control over annexation, so voters need to be careful who they elect to the board. Toward the end of the meeting, political candidates in attendance were invited to speak. Harry Warren, a Republican running for N.C. House District 77, said he thinks those in a proposed area to be annexed should be given a vote. He said he didn’t like the reform bill the House passed last year. It stalled in the Senate. That measure would also have allowed for those in municipalities to vote. “I don’t know how many of you are in this area and how many would turn out to vote, but I’ll bet you don’t


Woman reports home break-in while she was in jail for the same crime A Salisbury woman reported someone broke into her home while she was in the Rowan County Jail serving time for her own breaking and entering charge. According to a report from the sheriff’s office, Connie Wilson Kizer, 47, of 2109 Airport Road, Apartment 35D, came home from jail Tuesday to find her apartment broken into and several items stolen. Kizer reported a microwave, costume jewelry, vacuum cleaner, a floor fan, two six-packs of Bounty paper towels and a bottle of Downy were taken, totaling $340. She told authorities the last time her apartment was secure was Sept. 28. The report stated the entry to Kizer’s apartment was not forced, and entry point was unknown. Other break-ins around the county, reported to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office: • Camacho’s Wheels and Tires, 1600 N. Main St., China Grove, was broken into, with four 20-inch chrome wheels and one low-rider bicycle taken. The wheels are valued at $1,000, the bicycle at $400. According to the report, the business was broken into by the use of a jimmy or prying tool. • The Mt. Ulla home of Mark Brown was broken into and $3,660 worth of guns were taken from his home. The report did not indicate a point of entry. Brown reported the theft of a Ruger P85, 357 Taurus, Frazier Browning 25-gauge, Mossburg Pump 12gauge, single barrel 12-gauge, MAC 90 pine stock, SKS with folding stock, Ruger 22 pistol, 6.5 Model 1911, and three other pistols.

Music legends perform at Hall of Fame ceremony in Kannapolis BY HUGH FISHER

KANNAPOLIS — It was a night to celebrate some of the brightest minds and most familiar voices in music — all of them with North Carolina roots. The N.C. Music Hall of Fame, located in downtown Kannapolis, held its 2010 inductee ceremony at the Murdock Core Laboratory on the N.C. Research Campus on Thursday. This is the first year the Hall of Fame has held a gala dinner and awards ceremony of this type. The packed hall rang out with applause for the accomplishments of musicians, singers and songwriters whose work spans decades. China Grove native Curly Seckler was one of them. He joined Charlie Monroe’s singing group at the age of 19 after realizing that life “down on the farm” wasn’t enough. He told the audience about his time as a young man picking cotton in the fields, straining his back until he’d had enough. “I told them, when I get to the end of this row, you can watch me pick my last pod of cotton,” Seckler said. He left cotton fields and a brief stint at Cannon Mills behind to play

Gary Earnhardt got a text message from his boss, but didn’t quite believe the message. Earnhardt was told he was in the running to receive a new car. Alan Lambert, executive director of the Fred Corriher YMCA in China Grove, sent the message after he heard Earnhardt’s name called Wednesday during the Rowan County United Way campaign report meeting. “I said, ‘I can’t believe it.’ I thought he might be pulling my leg,” Earnhardt said. He asked if Lambert was sure it was him. “There’s another Gary Earnhardt that lives on Stokes Ferry,” he told his boss.

banjo and mandolin on local radio stations and stages, making a name for himself. Today, at the age of 91, Seckler is a legend of the Grand Ole Opry and is working on another album. “Seventy-five years in bluegrass, and I ain’t done yet!” a triumphant Seckler told the audience as he accepted a plaque honoring him for his induction into the Hall of Fame. N.C. Rep. Fred Steen also presented Seckler with a letter from his colleagues in the House and a letter from Gov. Bev Perdue. Outside the hall, Steen said it was high time that North Carolina’s musicians were honored. “This is a great opportunity for local folks to see some great entertainers,” Steen said. The audience came alive, clapping and singing along, as some of those legends performed. In addition to Seckler, guitar legend Doc Watson played and sang several songs. A seven-time Grammy award winner for his recordings, Watson is a native of Deep Gap. At age 87, Watson’s voice was strong as he sang “Working Man Blues,” then followed it with “a lit-

Earnhardt. “I never won anything in my life,” he said. Earnhardt said he has a vehicle, but had been looking for a new one. Earnhardt, who is a Rowan native, is the sports director for the South branch of the Y. “I know how important it is to contribute to the United Way. It’s a good cause. It goes to organizations around here. It helps us with our scholarships,” he said. The money given to the Y through the United Way campaign helps people who can’t afford membership with financial assistance. “It’s a great thing for Rowan County to help,” Earnhardt said. He called the county blessed to have individuals and businesses donating to the campaign. “I just say praise the

Lord,” he said. Sherry McCall had to play back a voicemail left for her by Jackie Harris, United Way’s campaign and marketing director, informing her about the drawing. McCall, with Community One Bank, wasn’t sure she heard the voicemail correctly. “I wasn’t sure I heard what I thought I heard,” she said. Eventually the unbelievable became believable when Harris confirmed the message. “I’ve never won anything,” McCall said. She has a son, Josh, 21, who could use a car. She’s considering giving him the car if she wins or “he can take mine,” she said with a laugh. McCall has been a regular United Way campaign contributor for at least eight


years through her company. She’s recently learned more about what the campaign funds cover. “I have several friends and family who are unemployed. It was nice to know they do offer them help,” she said. McCall has lived in Rowan County for 20 years. Two names will be drawn at each weekly report meeting. At the end of the campaign there will be a total of 12 names of people who will be in the running to win a car. During the final report meeting in early November, the final name chosen will win a car from one of the four participating dealerships. The four Salisbury automotive dealers are Ben Mynatt Nissan, Team Chevrolet, Gerry Wood AutoCentre and Cloninger Ford/Toyota. Contact Shavonne Potts at 704-797-4253.



tle flatpickin’.� He thanked those who had selected him for the honor of being in the Hall of Fame. “I don’t know whether I deserve it or not, but I sure do appreciate it,� Watson said. Maurice Williams took the stage later, singing songs he made famous with the Zodiacs, including “Stay.� Williams has lived in Charlotte for years, and said he was privileged to be able to call this state home. “You can be honored in a lot of places in this world, but when you’re honored at home, that’s special,� Williams said. George Hamilton IV sang his 1957 teen ballad “A Rose and a Baby Ruth,� followed by a hymn, “We’ll Meet Again,� in memory of many singers who’ve passed on. “Not gone away,� Hamilton said, “just gone on before.� Durham native Don Schlitz performed “The Gambler,� the song he wrote that won a Grammy and CMA Song of the Year in 1979 when recorded by Kenny Rogers. Among other inductees, well-known North Carolinian actor and singer Andy Griffith was honored, though he was unable to attend. And Clay Smith accepted an award on behalf of his father, Arthur Smith, famous for his “Guitar Boogie� recordings and other work in the music industry. Hall of Fame director Eddie Ray said locals should be aware of how many famous musicians came from their cities

Man’s leg saved after moped crash A China Grove man nearly lost his leg after he crashed into a truck with his moped Wednesday morning. John Swink, 38, told a Post reporter Thursday that doctors were able to reattach a main artery, which saved his leg from being amputated. Swink is currently at Carolinas Medical Center, recovering from the Wednesday surgery, which consisted of placing pins in his left leg, and repairing an artery. Swink said another surgery and skin graft is planned for today. Highway Patrol Trooper K.G. Barringer said Swink is at fault, and minor charges are pending for failure to yield/failure to reduce speed. The collision happened around 6:15 Wednesday morn-

ing. According to Barringer, Swink was following a tractortrailer truck, driven by Mark Zuidema of Massachusetts, and Zuidema, hoping to turn around and head south, was attempting to turn into a gravel parking lot in the 4000 block of U.S. 29 when the wreck happened. Barringer said Zuidema had his right turn signal on, and as he swung his truck slightly to the left to make the turn, Swink hit a metal bracket that held a mud flap for the back tire of the trailer. “The moped never slowed down,� Barringer said, adding that Swink was basically traveling on the white line close to the curb/shoulder. Barringer said Swink was basically beside the trailer when the trailer swung over and hit him. Swink was flown to Carolinas Medical Center. Zuidema was not injured.

GATHER FROM 4a outnumber the city of Salisbury,� Warren said. Warren’s Democratic opponent, N.C. Rep. Lorene Coates, has said she also opposes forced annexation but thinks the flawed H.R. 524 would be better than no reform at all. Harry Welch Jr., a Republican running for Register of Deeds, said he couldn’t directly impact the annexation fight in office but would continue to speak out as a public figure. Superior Court Judge Marshall Bickett, who is running to replace retired judge John Holshouser, said he could not offer an opinion on annexation but believes “the government should be serving the people, not the other way around.� County Commissioner Tina Hall was in attendance as well. The group also elected new officers Thursday. Jeff Matthews, who had been serving as treasurer, was elected to replace outgoing president Mark Davis. Donna Poteat was elected as the new treasurer. Carl Eagle will remain vice president and Liz Eagle will continue as secretary. “We have to continue to organize to affect the legislation,� Matthews said. “That is the only way to truly erase this issue from our front door.� Contact Karissa Minn at 704797-4222.

Hydrocodone pills were reported missing Thursday morning from the drug room at Liberty Commons Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 4412 S. Main St. According to the Salisbury Police Department, 120 pills were discovered missing by a nurse at 5:30 Thursday morning. A nurse told police the door to the drug room was supposed to be locked at all times, and after an investigation, officers learned the door was probably unlocked at some point between 3 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. Officers conducted interviews with the employees working at that time, however, no one seemed to know what had gone on, police said. The Salisbury Police Department is continuing to investigate. Street value of the pills is around $300.

Reform overdue in North Carolina Perdue uniquely qualified to change state government, but will she? BY TOM CAMPBELL N.C. Spin

Lenders still don’t get it ith North Carolina and Rowan County both especially hard hit by home foreclosures, it’s galling to learn that some lenders are botching the foreclosure process just as thoroughly as they messed up on loan approvals. The situation is serious enough that N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper has asked lenders to cease processing foreclosures here /// until/// lending institutions and state regulators take another look at their procedures. The center of the controversy is a practice known as “robo-signing” — meaning that some lenders have been Even if such signing off on foresloppiness doesn’t closure documents without bothering rise to the level of to verify, or pera statutory crime, haps even read, the information they it represents yet contain. another regulatory Isn’t it loan officers and closing atfailure in the torneys who are allending industry. ways telling consumers not to sign anything they haven’t read or don’t thoroughly understand? Apparently, that doesn’t apply when it’s someone else who’s about to find an eviction notice tacked on the door. The documentation lapses now coming to light nationwide aren’t limited to minor clerical mistakes. In some cases, bank employees have acknowledged they did not verify how much borrowers still owed on the property or failed to follow proper notarization procedures. In some instances, according to the Attorney General’s Office, these lapses could constitute fraud. Even if such sloppiness doesn’t rise to the level of a statutory crime, it represents yet another regulatory failure in the lending industry. Inevitably, it also raises questions about the degree to which a rush to foreclosure is helping to fuel persistently high foreclosure rates. Thus far, the problems appear to be concentrated among major lenders who are processing tens of thousands of foreclosure claims. Bank of America has halted foreclosures in North Carolina, while delaying such actions in several other states. JPMorgan Chase and Ally Financial’s GMAC Mortgage Unit are among other lenders who have stopped or slowed foreclosures, while yet others are expected to follow suit as regulators continue to scrutinize foreclosures across the country. These new problems have come to light just as some struggling homeowners could latch onto a glimmer of optimism about getting federal foreclosure prevention funding that might help them keep their houses. But that funding isn’t due to arrive until the end of this year or early 2011. Meanwhile, it appears some big lenders have been rushing through foreclosures with the same careless, cavalier attitude that helped create this mess.

“If you don’t think every day is a good day, just try missing one.”

tate government is not functioning efficiently, is costing more than current revenues can support and a growing number feel it is out of control. With the exception of the second Hunt administration, Gov. Bev Perdue came into office with more state government experience than anyone we’ve elected since Kerr Scott. She is uniquely qualified to lead change; however, Perdue’s TOM first 20 months CAMPBELL in office have necessarily focused on a severe recession, resulting state budget problems and one crisis after another in government agencies. It is time for Bev Perdue to employ her considerable experience to reform government to more accurately reflect today’s North Carolina. Common sense dictates every generation should review and change our social contract with government. The last significant reform in state government occurred more than 30 years ago, and during the interval we have added at least two executive level departments,

Beverly perdue hugs Windsor Mayor James Hoggard during a tour of flooded downtown Windsor. perdue says she’ll announce initiatives to reorganize state government after the election. created and expanded many state programs, seen a fivefold increase in the state budget and added thousands of public sector employees. We are a different North Carolina than we were 30 years ago due to demographic and geographic population shifts, a change from manufacturing to a more service based economy and differing needs of our populace. Last year Governor Perdue appointed a task force to search for ways to improve government efficiency and save money while providing essential services to our citizens. This week she announced plans to reveal her initiatives for re-

organization shortly after the November elections, promising her proposals would consolidate some agencies, eliminate others and sell assets that would save money. Our immediate reaction was that the process should have been more open to public input and guidance, but we strongly suspect the mere threat of a program or agency cut or elimination would result in a major pushback and lobbying effort to negate any change. The governor probably decided it best to view reorganization in its entirety rather than subjecting it to death by a thousand cuts. We do question both the

timing of Perdue’s announcement and the release of the proposals. With elections just days away, what was the benefit of teasing the subject without releasing any details? Polls show the Democratic Party at risk of losing control of one or both houses of the legislature. Rolling out a plan to reform and reorganize state government several weeks before the election could potentially have raised the job approval rating for the governor while also providing a big boost for Democratic legislators. Since any significant structural changes in government will require legislative cooperation and action, it is problematic to speculate how difficult a government overhaul might be with Republicans controlling one or both houses while the governor is a Democrat. Governor Perdue has now raised expectations to a level where anything less than a meaningful and well conceived reorganization that provides significant changes and resultant savings might be viewed poorly. We commend her for undertaking the task and are eager to see her proposals. • • • Tom Campbell is former assistant state treasurer and is creator/host of NC SPIN, a weekly statewide television discussion of N.C. issues airing on WFMY-TV.

Getting along with pack rat can be messy D


Endorsement deadline

o you know what a pack rat is? I do, because I live with one. Little did I know when I married, it would be a sin to get rid of a box. First of all, let me clarify what I mean by get rid of a box. I believe in recycling, so when I get rid of a box, that means I recycle it. I am a firm believer in taking care of the Earth, and so I recycle as much as I can. This story, however, is not about recycling, but about living with a pack rat who doesn’t believe in getting rid of anything for any purpose. His belief is, if you get rid of something you might need it. DICY To enlighten you MCCULLOUGH a little, I need to back track to when my husband and I married. We have been married for 26 years. The day we were married my husband brought very little in the way of earthly goods with him. So, you see, I had no clue as to what the future would hold. Things went along OK for many years. We accumulated a few things along the way in the terms of furniture and a few cars. Eventually, we moved into the house where we are now, which came with five acres and a large shed. I don’t know what happened, but something triggered a gene in my husband’s DNA. It was like, oh, boy, now I can collect stuff. One of the things my husband likes to collect is junk car parts. Do I need to say more? The idea is that someday he may need them. I wonder how many ladies out there have the same problem as I do? I used to be able to look out my back yard and see trees and grass. There are still trees and grass, but now there is a tire here and a hub cab there. You get the picture. Don’t get me wrong. I love my husband and I respect his opinion. I just don’t get his opinion. Maybe the desire to collect things has been there all along, but I just didn’t see it at first. I remember his mother telling me, as a child, he would collect the GI Joe Army men. I wish he still had those because I do believe they are worth some money. Why is it the things you should collect you get rid of too soon? But the things that don’t amount to a hill of beans you keep forever. The car parts would be bad enough, except now there is a collection of things like boxes and newspapers overflowing into the house. Well, I guess I’ll stop my ranting and raving, because I must admit I like to collect things too. The thing I collect the most of, unfortunately, is dust. • • •

Big business is trying to buy Congress with contributions In the last few days, it has been revealed that foreign money is being poured into Republican ads nationwide. The Chamber of Commerce, an innocuous sounding organization, is the largest donor; spending millions on Republican ads attempting to buy back Congress. The money from American big business and the millions from foreign governments and foreign companies is all co-mingled into one pot used to fund these ads. Chills should go down every citizen’s spine at the thought of foreign influence on our laws. We won’t know before the election which countries or foreign corporations are contributing because under the new campaign finance laws, sources of contributions don’t have to be revealed until the end of the year. Large corporations, banks and billionaires are also separately giving to Republican ads. There are three very rich men who nationwide are funding 33 percent of Republican campaign money. How can we as citizens allow tycoons, big business and foreign powers to buy Congress? This is our lawmaking body, the most influential governmental body affecting our daily lives. Our present Congress, as ineffective as it may have seemed, must have been very effective in putting a crimp in the style of moneyed and foreign interests. Why else would those interests be spending millions to demonize Democratic candidates, the president and Congress? Their attack ads and downright lies are largely responsible for the unrest, suspicion and hatred that seem to be dividing us and fomenting fear. Don’t let selfish interests buy us out by scaring, subverting and distracting. Remember, we are one nation and should be able to air our differences sanely and civilly without stooping to name-calling and fear tactics. Fear can only divide us. We are at a crossroads. We can let selfish interests buy our laws or we can vote in our own interests. Democrats are not perfect, but at least we’re not owned by foreigners or big business. — Marion McLaughlin Salisbury

Let’s all vote in November November is the month Americans go to the polls to exercise their right to vote as guaranteed by the Constitution. It wasn’t until 1920 that all citizens had this right. Up until 1870, only white males 21 years of age or older could vote. The 15th Amendment gave blacks the vote, but Southern states passed registration laws that included residency requirements, literacy tests and poll taxes that disenfranchised blacks and poor whites. The 24th Amendment made poll taxes illegal. Through the efforts of dedicated suffragettes, the 19th Amendment finally gave women the vote. The 26th Amendment lowered the voting age to 18. If we researched voting data, it would probably show that the years after their passage saw high numbers of African-Americans, women and 18-year-olds going to the polls. Most of us remember voting for the first time, but after the initial excitement wears off, we tend to become complacent. According to the N.C. Board of Elections, 70 percent of registered voters voted in the presidential election in 2008. In the off-year elections, the voter turnout is much lower as shown in the 2006 elections, which had only a 37 percent turnout. It is hoped that all registered voters will study the issues and the candidates and vote in November. — Jane Thomas Greensboro

Army Maj. Kerriann Clapper watches as East Rowan High School senior Aaron Mims puts on his 2011 U.S. All-American Marching Band jacket at the school’s auditorium.

BAND FROM 1A Bowl on Jan. 8. “The U.S. Army has a long musical history and being an Army musician is one option the All-American Bowl showcases to young Americans,” said Col. Derick Crotts, director of strategic communications, marketing and outreach. “The mental, emotional and physical qualities necessary to be a successful band member are the same qualities mirrored in Army strong soldiers.” A group of Army representatives was on hand Wednesday in the school’s auditorium to officially invite Mims to participate in the band. “We are here today to celebrate a talented student who will perform as 1 of 125 students in the U.S. Army AllAmerican Marching Band,” said master of ceremonies Amber Stephens. Staff Sgt. Felix Matos-Cruz and Maj. Kerriann Clapper presented Mims with an AllAmerican Marching Band jacket in front of his peers. “It takes a special person to be in the Army and it takes a special person to play in the band,” Clapper said. “Soldiers live by the values of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage — all qualities that can be applied in band, in the classroom and in life.” East Rowan Principal Kelly Sparger said he is proud of Mims’ accomplishment. “This is one of the biggest announcements in East Rowan history and certainly the biggest in East Rowan band history,” he said. Mims’ mother, Dianna Mims, attended the event Wednesday. “We’re just so proud of him,” she said. “He’s worked so hard and he’s always

GRANT FROM 1A they are not given without justification from the federal government,” Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education Chairman Dr. Jim Emerson said in the press release. “There are expectations and strings attached,” he said. “I am confident that our staff and teachers will be good stewards of these monies and every student will benefit over these next three years.” The goal of the program is to improve the science knowledge of North Carolina students in high-need school districts by providing professional development activities for their teachers. Participating teachers receive at least 80 hours of professional development during the three-year grant period. The grant requires districts to partner with a college or university and an organization that can improve the quality of science instruction. Rowan-Salisbury is partnering with Catawba College and the N.C. Research Campus. The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) faculty must directly lead part or all of the professional development sessions. “This grant opportunity will allow us to expand on the science programs that are already in place,” Superintendent Dr. Judy Grissom said. “I am thrilled that more teachers will be able to learn new strategies and students will have the added tools to excite them about learning science.” The RSS proposal focuses on preparing teachers to teach the physical science strand of the state curriculum for science in grades K-8. The grant requires data to be collected that will become a part of the data collected across the state.

strived for excellence and this is his reward.” Band director Emily Davis said she’s honored to have Mims represent East Rowan in the Army All-American Marching Band. “Aaron Mims has been such a hardworking band member,” she said. “He’s a very strong musician and shows great leadership.” Mims has served as the trumpet leader for East Rowan’s marching band for the past two years and played first chair in the All-County band, displaying an unwavering dedication to his art. “I practice every single day of the week, for a couple of hours each day,” he said. Trumpet isn’t just a hobby for Mims. “Whenever I’m having a hard time in life, I just pick up my trumpet and everything gets good,” he said. Mims was chosen for the band by the selection committee consisting of The National Association for Music Education, Drum Corps International, All American Games and Nola Jones, head director and show coordinator. Thousands of high school seniors apply for the band each year. He submitted three audition videos. One with a speech telling why he should be selected, one where he played his choice of music and one in which he played music provided by the band and moved in a square marching sequence. When Mims received his decision letter in July, he immediately saw congratulations in big, bold letter and breathed a sigh of relief. “I was speechless,” he said. “I feel real good knowing that years of hard work have finally paid off,” he said. When Mims takes the field at the Alamodome in January he said it will top every performance. “It will be a better feeling than anything I’ve ever done,” he said.

“This is an incredible opportunity for our teachers and students as they will have the chance to explore hands-on, inquiry-based science and have access to science kits and training that will be made possible by the grant,” said Assistant Superintendent Dr. Rebecca Smith, co-author of the grant application. “Now we will be able to provide additional resources for all science teachers in grades K-8 throughout the school system. We are so excited to get started with this opportunity and to get these resources into the hands of teachers and our young learners,” she said. “When you visit a classroom where inquirybased science is taking place, the children are enthusiastically engaged in the discovery lessons, and all students have a chance to be actively involved in the learning.” The professional development design includes a twoweek Summer Science Institute for K-8 teachers with follow-up sessions throughout the year. Non-public schools are encouraged to participate. “The Math and Science Partnership Grant will create momentum for a different mindset for science instruction,” said Horizons Director Lisa Wear, who also co-authored the grant. “We are very excited about our partnership with Catawba College. College STEM faculty and science specialists from Horizons Unlimited will work with K-8 teachers to design and facilitate highly engaging activities to excite, motivate, and prepare students for future careers in science and technology.” Out of the five districts in the state awarded the federal grant, Rowan-Salisbury ranked No. 1 for having the best written and prepared application, the press release said.

Giants blank Braves BY JANIE MCCAULEY Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — The Freak really showed up for San Giants 1 Francisco on his Braves 0 biggest stage yet. Tim Lincecum pitched a two-hitter and struck out 14 in a dominating postseason debut, and the Giants scored their only run after a questionable umpiring call to beat the Atlanta Braves 1-0 in Game 1 of their NL division series Thursday night. “That’s one of the best efforts I’ve ever seen,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “What a great job that kid did. He’s tough.” Lincecum pitched a gem a day after Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay threw only the second no-hitter in postseason history in his debut. Lincecum outdueled playoff veteran Derek Lowe and caught a break, too.


Mustangs go 12-0 in NPC tennis race

Cody Ross singled in the only run Lincecum needed in the fourth after Buster Posey was called safe by umpire Paul Emmel on a steal of second. It was the first career steal for Posey, even though he appeared to be tagged out by Brooks Conrad on the play — retiring Braves manager Bobby Cox, the all-time leader in ejections, did not argue. “I haven’t seen it,” Cox said. “Some of the guys came down after that inning and said he was out by six, eight inches. From the dugout you can’t see anything.” Lincecum struck out Derrek Lee for the third time to end the 119-pitch masterpiece in 2 hours, 26 minutes. He became just the 12th pitcher with 14 or more strikeouts in a postseason game. In a postseason already filled with plenty of stellar pitching, this was the first 1-0 game in the postseason since 2005.

East Rowan’s girls tennis team capped a perfect NPC season with an 8-1 victory against West Rowan on Thursday afternoon. The Mustangs (12-3, 12-0) are outright champs one year after sharing first place with Statesville. West Rowan’s victory came at No. 1 singles, where Madison Rusher won 6-1, 6-3 against Devan Corpening. East’s Rebecca Agner didn’t drop a game against Mary Tyler March at No. 2, and Kayela Wilson claimed a 6-4, 6-1 WILSON victory over Dorothy Mauldin. Hannah Pressley (7-5, 6-2 over Maggie Daniel), Lizzie Weaver (6-2, 6-2 over Adrien Rusher) and Taylor Trexler (6-2, 6-2 over Allison Cranford) also prevailed in straight sets. Wilson-Pressley, AgnerWeaver and Trexler-Amanda Boehm contributed to a doubles sweep by the Mustangs.


Friday Night OT sneak by Sifford sealed upset victory reat moments in North Rowan football history? This one’s up there. It was the third week of the 1987 season, and the Cavaliers faced Lexington. The Yellow Jackets had won back-to-back 2A state titles. They were ranked MIKE No. 1 and expected to LONDON three-peat. Lexington was rolling 21-7 when North got back into it with two quick turnovers. Trailing 21-19, quarterback Chris Sifford got the Cavaliers even with a two-point conversion pass to Edward Kesler. It went to overtime. Three runs by fullback Rusty Clinding shoved the ball to the Lexington 1-yard line, and coach Larry Thomason sent in the call for a quarterback sneak. Sifford met a brick wall, but he kept pushing and got a great block from Clinding. Sifford had spent that summer in the weight room. He had just enough power to break the plane of the goal line, and North owned a monumental upset. Sifford was supposed to do things like that because he was a Sifford. A long line of Siffords had excelled at East Rowan or North. “My cousin Antoine was a few years older and was a great athlete at North,” Sifford said. “I was supposed to follow.”


jon c. lakey/sALisBUrY Post

carson running back shaun Warren gives a quick look back during a 60-yard touchdown run at home against statesville.

Fans will flock to China Grove Roaming the county getting ready for tonight ... ow big is Carson’s home game against West Rowan tonight? I was told Monday during the Cougars’ jayvee game that the school was having a strategy meeting. Most of the time, the only strategy for a high school football game is to open the RONNIE gates, take GALLAGHER their money and let ’em in. But this will be different. Not only do Carson and West bring in droves of their faithful, South Rowan is off tonight.


Many Carson fans used to be South Rowan fans. And South is located only a few miles from Carson. You know those people are coming. North Rowan is traveling to Outer Mongolia, er, I mean, North Moore. Most of its fans probably won’t make that trip. So some of those people are coming. And who knows how many county fans will skip home games at Salisbury and East? I can’t remember such a fever pitch since West and Northwest Cabarrus squared off as 8-0 opponents in 2005. West won 14-3. The crowd that night rivaled one of those A.L. Brown-Concord games of the past. Since then, West has been through this type of hoopla

plenty of times. As coach Scott Young told his jayvees last week after a win at West Iredell, there’s a big ‘ol bulls-eye on the front of their shirts. But for Carson, only in its

fifth year of existence, this is entirely different drama. West athletics director Todd Bell, asked what advice he’d give Carson AD Jim Grkman, said, “You up security and get your ticket-takers there early. Everything falls into place. You treat it like any other game. There’s just more people.” Bell said the concession workers need to increase their stock of food. Greg Story is ready. Story is in charge of concessions at Carson. A second concession trailer has been brought in. He planned to take today off and begin icing down coolers of drinks early in morning.


Sifford grew up off Spencer’s Third Street, a mile from Ellis Crossroads. There was solid community support. Daniel Griffith Sr. taught him how to throw a curveball. He had neighborhood role models i n the Mitchell brothers, Andrew SIFFORD and Mike. “I played ball with the big boys at an early age,” Sifford said. “Tag football on the street. I had to grow up quick.” As he grew, Sifford discovered his gifts and recognized his limitations. “I don’t think I was ever the best athlete,” he said. “I didn’t have that extra halfstep the great ones have. But I had the I.Q. I saw games like they were in slow motion, and I played sports religiously.” He became a standout baseball player, and he averaged 16.6 points a game his senior season for North’s basketball team. Still, it’s for football he’s most remembered. He was a rare combination — a quarterback and an assassin as a defensive back. “(North assistant coach) Robert Steele used to tell me I would just cut people in half,” Sifford said. “I didn’t think size made a difference. That’s just how I played.”


Common Sense says Falcons comfortable on big stage s you’ve probably heard by now, tonight’s Carson-West Rowan matchup is the biggest sporting event in Carson’s short history. It will be the biggest football game West Rowan has played this season, but it’s a long way from being the biggest in West history. West plays its big games in venues like Raleigh’s Carter-Finley Stadium and Winston-Salem’s BB&T Field with state championships on the line.


That’s why Common Sense believes West will win, and I’d bet my Don Larsen rookie card on it. That’s not to disrespect Carson. Having seen Carson play twice, admittedly against competition that didn’t seriously challenge the Cougars, I left the stadium impressed. Carson’s schedule hasn’t been overly stout — the Cougars did beat a good Salisbury team that put up a decent fight against West. Common Sense believes Carson is

a legit 9-2 team, and the Cougars will go 9-2 if they can beat West Iredell. The Cougars are above average, very good or great everywhere on offense. They have coaching. SHOAF They can kick PATs. They have a handful of serious studs on defense. Ryan Shoaf (No. 99) can play for any high school team in the state.

Personnel-wise, there’s no longer a huge gap between West and Carson, except in the defensive secondary, where the Falcons are loaded with talent and the Cougars have injuries. West’s Domonique Noble is headed to Georgia Tech for a reason. Trey Mashore would be headed to the NFL if he could grow five inches. Eric Cowan is the most underrated guy in the county.

Hornets back on track From staff reports

Salisbury’s boys soccer team won 1-0 at Lexington on Thursday night. Salisbury’s goal came about 20 minutes into the match when Matt Cervantes sent a cross to Marco Mejia, who provided the finish. While it doesn’t sound like an overwhelming victory, coach Tom Sexton was pleased with just about everything that transpired. “Lexington packed it in tight and played defense, but we were in control of the match,” he said. “Connor Miller reasserted himself in goal and our defensive effort was very good.” Salisbury lost 4-3 in overtime to East Davidson on Wednesday, uncharacteristically squandering a 3-1 lead late in regulation with undisciplined offense and defensive miscues. It was a surprising loss that put the Hornets’ dominance of the CCC in jeopardy. “We fixed it. We cleaned up the mess from Wednesday,” Sexton said. “We had five good chances to score with headers off corner kicks but just missed.” Fourth-ranked Salisbury (131-1, 3-1-1 CCC) has a big home match on Monday against seventh-ranked West Davidson. The teams tied in their first meeting.  Lexington beat Thomasville 1-0 on Wednesday. Salisbury got help Thursday from Central Davidson, which upset East Davidson 6-5.

 Prep volleyball Wearing pink socks and hair ribbons to show support for Cancer Awareness Week, Salisbury's volleyball team swept CCC opponent Lexington 25-9, 25-12, 25-9 on Thursday. Freshman McCleese Whittington had nine aces and served for 12 consecutive points in Game 2. Aces also were served by Olivia Rankin, Olivia Smith, Isis Miller, Katie Canipe and Brielle Blaire for a total of 27 in the match. Rankin, Canipe, Miller and Blaire had kills. Miller led in blocks. The Hornets (2-6 CCC) will recognize seniors Rankin, Miller and Hannah White at their last home game against Thomasville on Oct. 12.

 Prep tennis One day after completing an eighth straight unbeaten run through the CCC, Salisbury’s girls tennis team posted a 9-0 win at Lake Norman. Joy Loeblein won 6-2, 6-0 against Constance Crisp at No. 1 singles for the Hornets (22-2), and second-seeded Erika Nelson didn’t drop a game against Bella Dokell. Third-seeded Katelyn Storey (vs. Kyle Harmon) and Madeline Hoskins (vs. Tera Fogel) lost only one game apiece against the Wildcats (12-2). Anna Page pulled out a 6-3, 63 victory against Sydney Rapier at No. 5, and sixth-seeded Anna Flynn won 6-1, 6-2 against Taylor Beard. In doubles, Loeblein-Nelson won 8-1 against Britta HuibersRegan Patterson. Storey-Hoskins claimed an 8-4 victory against Crisp-Nikki Nelson, and FlynnSallie Kate Meyerhoeffer won 84 against Daniella DworschakTaylor Purvis.  North Rowan lost to YVC foe Chatham Central 7-2 despite singles wins by Taylor Love and Daisy Lemke. North lost 6-0 to East Montgomery in a YVC match. In a 5-4 YVC win against North Moore, the Cavaliers got singles wins from Kelli Berry, Dakota Honeycutt, Lemke and Tenesha Dickerson. Lemke-Honeycutt won in doubles.

 Jayvee football West Rowan pounded Carson 45-0 in jayvee football on Thursday. Daisean Reddick scored twice on runs, while Tyler Stamp scored twice on pass receptions. Michael Pinkston threw touchdown passes of 4 and 51 yards to Stamp and 10 yards to C.J. Charles.

Pettitte torments Twins BY DAVE CAMPBELL Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — Sure, the New Yankees York Yankees 5 stumbled through Twins 2 September as Andy Pettitte tried to work his way back from a groin injury. After landing in the AL wild-card spot, the defending World Series champs look as though they had the Minnesota Twins right where they wanted ’em. Pettitte turned in a vintage performance with seven smooth innings and Lance Berkman had two big hits in a 5-2 win by the Yankees on Thursday. New York has a 2-0 lead in the bestof-five division series. So much for Minnesota’s home-field advantage. “Andy, when he gets in big situations, he knows how to handle it,” New York manager Joe Girardi said. “He’s not going to try to make the perfect pitch. He’s going to stay aggressive and just try to do what he does. And I think a lot of that is just from experience.” Berkman hit a go-ahead home run in the fifth and a tiebreaking double in the seventh against Carl Pavano, sending the Twins to their 11th straight postseason loss. Eight of those have come

against the Yankees, who trailed in each of those games. From the point of the Twins’ biggest lead in those games, the Yankees have outscored them 42-8. “We’ve got to stay within ourselves and play good baseball,” Twins right fielder Jason Kubel said. “Someday it will turn out. Just hopefully sooner rather than later.” Mariano Rivera got three outs for his second save of the series, running his career total to 600. The Twins? They haven’t won a postseason game since 2004, matching the Philadelphia Phillies (1915-1976) for the second-longest streak in history behind the Boston Red Sox (1986-1995) and their 13 in a row. Orlando Hudson’s homer tied it in the sixth. Berkman’s double in the seventh — one pitch after it appeared Pavano sneaked strike three past him — drove in Jorge Posada for a 3-2 lead. The disputed call by plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt led to the ejection of Twins manager Ron Gardenhire. It’s at least the fourth time Wendelstedt has ejected Gardenhire during his career. “Hunter and I, it has nothing to do with that,” Gardenhire said. “We cleared that stuff up (and put) all the other stuff behind us. We get along just fine, all right.”

pire Jerry Meals, who ruled that Young held up in time. Rays players were incensed on the bench, and replays showed that Young probably went too far. After the home run on the next pitch for a 5-0 lead, Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon left the dugout to talk with Qualls and was ejected by Wolf after he yelled at Meals from the mound. “Once he said safe, I’ve got to turn the page and focus on the next pitch,” Young said. “It’s really not my job to make decisions there.” Maddon also disputed a crucial call early in Wednesday’s 5-1 loss. Plate umpire Tim Welke said a pitch hit Carlos Pena’s bat with the bases loaded in the first inning, ruling it a foul tip. Maddon unsuccessfully argued that Pena was hit by the pitch. Tampa Bay failed to score when Pena and Rocco Baldelli struck out. “The Rangers have outplayed us for two consecutive nights, so I’ve got to give them all the credit,” Maddon said. “You can’t win games by just getting two hits, but I had to make my point. ... That’s all that was about.” Welke, the umpire crew chief, thought Wolf and Meals “showed a lot of restraint” before Maddon was tossed. “Obviously, it’s a judgment call,” Welke told a pool reporter. “He felt it was close, but he felt he didn’t go, and that’s what he said.”

BRAVES FroM 1B That’s when the Chicago White Sox finished off a World Series sweep over the Houston Astros. Game 2 of the Braves’ best-of-five series is tonight, with 13-game winner Matt Cain going for the Giants against Tommy Hanson. Lincecum’s only other complete game this season came in a six-hit shutout of the New York Mets on July 15. He threw all his pitches effectively, from his off-speed stuff to his power fastball. “It kind of progressed as it did. All the pitches were working,” Lincecum said. “It just felt like things were in place.” Lincecum carried the momentum from a strong final month right into October. His strikeouts set a franchise record for a postseason game — his eighth time with 10 or more Ks this year and 27th of his career. “He was lights out,” Cox said. “We had two runners at second base all night, and that’s it.” Posey also shined in his first playoff game. He had two hits to go with his controversial steal. “I guess it’s a good thing we don’t have instant replay right now,” Posey said. “It was a beautiful slide, wasn’t it?” Lowe, who won his last five regular-season starts with a 1.17 ERA over that stretch, allowed one run on four hits in 51⁄3 innings, struck out six and walked four. Lincecum, still hitting 91 mph on the radar gun in the ninth, became the first pitcher to record 12 strikeouts or more in the playoffs since Roger Clemens had 15 for the New York Yankees against Seattle in the 2000 AL championship series. Lowe was done after giving up Posey’s double and a walk in the sixth. That delighted the orange towel-waving sellout crowd of 43,936 at AT&T Park, which drew the largest attendance for a postseason game in the ballpark’s 11-year history. Ross delivered in the fourth after Lowe intentionally walked Pablo Sandoval. Ross is one of a handful of late acquisitions to contribute to the Giants’ first NL West title and playoff berth since 2003. Making his playoff debut at age 26 and in his third full major league season, Lincecum looked every bit an ace. He was sharp throughout,

This is the same pitcher whose careerworst five-start losing streak began with a defeat Aug. 5 at Atlanta. “At the time guys were telling me you’re going to go through your struggles,” Lincecum said. “It almost kind of feels it was that far back there, I try not to go back there and think about that mental slide.” Lincecum allowed a leadoff double to Omar Infante to start the game, then retired the next nine Braves batters in order before Jason Heyward drew a leadoff walk in the fourth. The stretch included five straight swinging strikeouts in the heart of Atlanta’s order.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Gratified to fiRangers 6 nally be in the Rays 0 playoffs, Michael Young and the Texas Rangers are making the most of their opportunity. Young hit a three-run homer one pitch after keeping his at-bat alive with a disputed check-swing, helping C.J. Wilson and the AL West champions beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-0 on Thursday for a 2-0 lead in their division series. “I just think that we’ve had a great mentality these first two games,” Young said. “We’re not really thinking about some huge, grand picture here. We empty the bank for the game we’re playing that day.” Texas is the only current major league franchise that’s never won a playoff series. After winning consecutive games on the road, that can change with one victory when the best-of-five matchup shifts to Rangers Ballpark this weekend. Game 3 is Saturday, with Matt Garza pitching for Tampa Bay against Colby Lewis. “Being up 2-0 is huge, especially winning two on the road. But we still haven’t accomplished anything yet,” Texas manager Ron Washington said. “Our goal is to get as far as we possibly can, and we’re just going to take it back to Texas and come out and try to play as hard as we can again.” Ian Kinsler also homered for the Rangers, who hadn’t won a postseason game in 14 years before Cliff Lee shut down the sputtering Rays in their home park on Wednesday. Wilson was equally impressive, allowing two hits in 62⁄3 innings. He gave up a single to leadoff man Jason Bartlett to start the game, then limited the Rays to just three baserunners on an error, a walk and a hit batter over the next five innings. Young broke the game open in the fifth with a 431-foot shot to center field off Chad Qualls, who thought he had a strikeout on a 2-2 pitch. Plate umpire Jim Wolf — the brother of Brewers pitcher Randy Wolf — appealed to first base um-

North Rowan

West Davidson


West Rowan

at Salisbury


Montgomery. North Rowan moved into positive rushing numbers for the season last week, and Cameron Mallett should have another productive night on the ground. The Cavaliers rushed for a whopping 341 yards against North Moore last season North Rowan sophomore QB T.J. Allen needs 126 passing yards to reach 1,000 for the season. He enjoyed a 200-yard game against Lexington earlier this season, the first by a Cavalier QB since Cameron Wood in 2007. Allen also hasn’t thrown a pick the past two weeks. Sam Starks (16 catches) ranks second in the county in receiving yards (342), and he kicks PATs. North’s defense, coordinated by Rodney Goodine, has permitted a meager 286 yards through the air this season. Senior QB Xavier Scotten is the player to watch for North Moore. He’s an elusive runner. — Mike London

 Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: West Davidson 4-2; 0-0 CCC; Salisbury 3-3, 0-0 CCC  Series: Hornets lead 6-3  Last meeting: Salisbury thrashed the Green Dragons 35-0 in 2009 in Tyro, but it’s generally been a hotly contested series  Last time the Green Dragons beat Salisbury: West Davidson won 28-26 against the Hornets in 2007 and also won the previous two years  Last week: Both teams are coming off an open week; Salisbury’s had to wait a while to get back on the field since a tough 19-14 loss to Davie two weeks ago  Next week: West Davidson is home against Lexington; Salisbury plays at surprising Central Davidson, which is off to a 5-1 start  Game notes: Salisbury QB John Knox needs a combined 83 yards rushing and passing to break the school total offense record that has belonged to Eddie Kesler since





 Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: Statesville 3-3, 1-0 NPC; East Rowan 1-2, 0-6 NPC  Series: Greyhounds lead 7-2  Last time Statesville beat East: Statesville won 37-14 in East’s 2008 season finale.  Last meeting: East won 31-27 at Greyhound Hollow, one of many amazing victories the Mustangs pulled out in 2009. It was East’s first victory against the Greyhounds since a 35-34 overtime win in the 1991 playoffs.  Last week: Statesville got drilled 44-13 by Lincolnton (6-0). Lincolnton has also beaten Shelby, South Point and East Rutherford; East was hammered 49-0 by Carson



 Next week: Statesville is home against West Rowan; East is off, with West looming on Oct. 22  Game notes: The Mustangs have lost six straight games since beating North Rowan on opening night. If you’re an East fan looking for positives, you can point out the schedule hasn’t included pushovers. East has lost to three 3-3 teams and to three teams with winning records. Linemen Wilson Weeks and Hank Delaney will try to get East back on track. Statesville, led by QB Carlis Parker, is as good as anyone the Mustangs have played. Statesville beat Carson, so homecoming may not be a ton of fun in Granite Quarry. — Mike London

A.L. Brown at Cox Mill  Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: A.L. Brown 5-1, 2-0 SPC; Cox Mill 4-2, 1-1 SPC  Series: Brown leads 1-0  Last meeting: Wonders cruised 61-7 at Memorial Stadium in 2009 as Travis Riley rushed for 211 yards  Streaks: Wonders haven’t lost to a Cabarrus team other than Concord since 1976  Last week: Wonders overcame early struggles to rout Central Cabarrus 56-14; Cox Mill lost to Hickory Ridge 37-20  Next week: The Wonders are at home against struggling Mount Pleasant; Cox Mill is at Concord  Game notes: It will be an emotional game for the Wonders, who are dealing with the loss of linebacker DaJon Torrence. He was killed in an auto accident Monday. Brown has been missing Travis

Q. Gill

R.J. Gill

Riley the past five games, but the running game has still churned out 250 or more yards in every game except the loss to Thomasville. Brown’s getting it done with a group of running backs that includes Demetrius Jackson (493 yards), Damien Washington (294), Xavier Stanback (222) and R.J. Gill (155). QB Martel Campbell has rushed for another 268 yards. Since a four-interception outing against Thomasville, he’s bounced back with seven TD passes and no picks. Keeon Johnson and Teven Jones have combined for nine TD catches. Linebacker Quin Gill scored on a fumble recovery last week to spark a defense that has held every opponent under 170 rushing yards. Explosive Cox Mill RB Jhauquille Hankerson is the guy the Wonders must stop tonight. — Mike London

Davie County

R.J. Reynolds  Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: Davie 2-4, 0-0 CPC; Reynolds 2-4, 0-0 CPC  Series: Davie leads 13-12  Last meeting: Demons won 33-23 in 2009  Last time Davie beat the Demons: War Eagles prevailed 26-14 in 2007 behind 203 passing yards by Garrett Benge  Last week: Both teams had their open week prior to starting CPC play.  Next week: Davie is home against rival West Forsyth; RJR is at Mount Tabor  Game notes: Davie coach Doug Illing speaks of developing “tough skin” during the non-conference segment of a season, and the War Eagles have developed it. Davie went 2-4 and was outscored 146-87 in its six non-league games,

1959. Knox enters the game with 4,117 career yards. He’s passed for 544 yards and eight TDs and rushed for 302 yards as a senior. Knox has thrown three TD passes in his career against West Davidson. Salisbury is rushing for 217 yards per game, second in the county, and North Carolina commitment Romar Morris ranks second in the county in rushing with 95 yards per game. Probably the fastest player in the state, he averages 8.8 yards a carry. Tre Jackson is one of the leaders for a Salisbury defense that ranks fourth in the county stats. While the Hornets already have lost to West Rowan, Carson and Davie, all the losses were to teams among the state’s top 100, according to power ratings guru Ken Massey. West Davidson has an exceptional running back in Ozzie Moore. Linebackers Tyler Hudson and Anthony Rebello are the defensive standouts. — Mike London


Jacob Barber

but the schedule was formidable. Salisbury is 3-3, and Davie’s other five foes, including unbeaten West Rowan and Thomasville, have winning records. Davie QB Carson Herndon has thrown for 868 yards, and he’s getting better. He has five TDs and one pick in his last three games. Duke-bound Joe Watson has 22 catches for 402 yards and four TDs. Jacob Barber has been big for the War Eagles on both sides of the ball. Receiver Jake Gainey mauled Davie last season and is still around. He had scoring receptions of 58, 51 and 34 yards in 2009. QB Vance Matthews and kicker Andy Teasdall are other leaders for coach Paul Hall’s Demons, who have lost twice in overtime and once on a Hail Mary. — Mike London

great against the run, and Carson is running over people. As an individual, Carson tailback Shaun Warren (242.6 yards per game) is outrushing every team in the county. Both teams throw effectively. Carson’s Cody Clanton is the county’s dominant receiver (677 yards, eight TDs), and QB Zack Gragg has nine TD passes. West’s terrific defensive backfield, including Georgia Tech commitment Domonique Noble, will try to contain Clanton. West’s B.J. Sherrill has thrown a school-record 45 TD passes, 10 of them this season. Carson has the county’s second-best rushing defense, but it has allowed over 1,000 passing yards. West is winning the turnover battle by a ridiculous 23-1 margin. Carson is dead-even on the turnover chart (17-17). If the Cougars take care of the ball tonight, it could get interesting. — Mike London

North Rowan’s trip to North Moore is so far away from Spencer, I asked Cavaliers coach Tasker Fleming, “When are you leaving?” “Thursday, at 8 in the morning,” he joked. 


On the air tonight ... WSTP 1490-AM and WRNA 1140-AM will be at Carson. WSAT 1280-AM is airing too many Pinyan commercials to turn their backs on the Hornets. It will broadcast Salisbury’s game. Go to a game tonight, folks. And regardless of the size of the crowd, be nice.

Oh yeah, there will be two pretty good football teams on the field. West Rowan (7-0) is the two-time defending 3A champ and has won 37 straight games. Carson, which is 6-1, has the state’s leading rusher in Shaun Warren. He’s averaging more rushing yards per game than any team in the county. But West loves the bulls-eye, and its defense loves this kind of challenge. So we’re set for the biggest regular-season Friday night in recent Rowan County history. Only one thing left to do. Open those gates, Grkman, and let ’em in.

For the fans who don’t want to fight the traffic — or just aren’t interested in Carson and West — they can travel to the other two home games. Both are significant. East is playing its homecoming game and would like nothing better than to break its six-game losing streak with an upset win over Statesville. Carson would love that, considering the Greyhounds handed the Cougars their only loss. Salisbury is opening its CCC schedule with West Davidson after a bye week. “I don’t know a coach in America who wants an

Parks Streaks: West has won 37 straight games overall and 22 straight NPC games. West’s winning streak against Rowan foes has reached 35 games. West also hasn’t lost an NPC road game since 2003.  Last week: West Rowan was challenged by West Iredell but won 34-14; Carson romped 49-0 at East Rowan  Next week: West Rowan is at Statesville; Carson is at North Iredell  Game notes: Carson’s offense has been supernatural (435.5 yards per game), and West Rowan’s defense has been equally phenomenal (4.0 points per game). It’s a dream matchup. West is

Drinks are important. The fans must have something to wash down all of those Gary’s barbecue sandwiches, Chik-fil-As, hotdogs and hamburgers “We’re going to almost triple everything,” Story said. At homecoming, Carson took in $6,000 through the window. “We’re expecting to double that, at least,” he said. While Carson usually has 12 to 14 people manning the concession stand, Story said 35 have volunteered for this week. “I’m nervous but excited also,” Story said. “It’s going to be a big night.” Grkman knows it. He is doubling security. The masonry class has built a new brick ticket booth. Grkman reports the home side of Carson’s stadium seats 2,000 and the visiting side seats 1,500. But he is quick to point out that many fans can line up along the fence that surrounds the field. The first row of bleachers on the home side are so high that fans can actually stand at the fence and not obscure anyone’s vision. Another 1,000 or more can pack in. Two of the county’s three radio stations will be in the place. The Post is sending two reporters. TV stations are coming. You may even see that Sun Drop monster truck come wheeling in for the Post’s pregame Internet show. Treat it like any other Friday night game? Not this one.

Preparing for Peppers not new to Gross Associated Press

He’s an old-school ribs-breaker. Find him a black and silver No. 32 jersey and he’d be the reincarnation of Jack Tatum. West may not enjoy its usual overwhelming edge on both lines. Carson is really good in the trenches. Carson has the better running back in Shaun Warren, and that’s no slap at West’s committee of carriers. Carson’s got a better running back than anybody.

Carson’s Cody Clanton will be the best receiver on the field, one more reason for Carson fans to believe the Cougars can slay the giant. Common Sense says the Falcons will march on, although I do believe the Cougars will take their best shot. Coach Mark Woody has been preparing for a game like this in his house for five years. When he was 0-22, the dream of a game like this kept him going. Still, West quarterback B.J. Sherrill has never lost a game he’s started and the Falcons have shown a dozen times under coach Scott Young that they can play at their peak when the crowd is loud-

LONDON FroM 1B Sifford was an undersized running back as a freshman, but the weight room eventually turned him into 188 pounds of steel and he grew to be 6-foot-2. He was an all-county defensive back as a sophomore in 1986. North went 7-3 and was 2-1 in the big games. North had three vicious rivals, with Lexington and Thomasville ranking right up there with Salisbury. Sifford’s junior season was his best. Besides cutting people in half on defense, he was the county’s total offense leader, throwing for nearly 700 yards and rushing for another 400. The week after that memorable Lexington game, he broke a sneak for a 20-yard TD that beat Randleman. His touchdown pass to Kesler was just enough to hold off Salisbury 10-8, and Sifford blocked a punt in a win against West Davidson. He scored twice in a 26-20 homecoming victory against Southwest Guilford. North went into the Thomasville game in late October with a chance to win the CCC, but it was mashed 42-13. It was over in two minutes. Two quick North turnovers. Two quick Thomasville TDs. North edged Ledford on a 65-yard scoring pass from Sifford to Robert Tabor, but the regular-season finale was disastrous. North fell 10-7 in overtime to East Davidson, and Sifford sprained an ankle. North limped into the playoffs as a No. 3 seed and traveled to Monroe for a 33-7 defeat. The Cavs got down 27-0 in a hurry. Sifford threw for 152 yards, but the hole was too deep. That was Thomason’s final game at the helm. He was 125-69-3 in his career. Named to coach the Cavaliers for Sifford’s senior year was Roger Secreast. “I had two great high school coaches, from totally

CHRIS SIFFORD different worlds,” Sifford said. “Thomason was no-nonsense, by-the-book. Roger liked to have some fun.” Secreast installed the wishbone, and Sifford would have been an ideal wishbone QB had he stayed healthy. That 1988 season is remembered for an inadvertent whistle. North was battling Lexington again. Sifford made a terrific play, eluding tacklers to fire a fourth-down TD pass to Tabor for a 13-0 lead. But an official, assuming Sifford would be sacked, had blown his whistle. The TD didn’t count, and Sifford was sacked when the down was replayed. North collapsed. Lexington won 36-7. The following week, Sifford separated his shoulder in a win against Randleman. When he returned, wearing a shoulder harness, Secreast stuck with Kevin Ennis as a shotgun QB. Sifford played defensive back and tight end while helping the Cavaliers shock thirdranked Thomasville 14-13. “Thomasville was good — no one gave us any chance,” Sifford said. “What I remember is a fourth-and-7 when we had to keep the winning drive going. I caught a pass for the first down.” In his final game in green, Sifford crushed East Davidson’s tailback to force a fumble that set up a game-sealing TD. Always a hitter. Sifford made all-county for the third straight season at DB. There was recruiting

LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will sit out Sunday’s game at Carolina because of a concussion. Bears spokesman Scott Hagel said Cutler was examined by team and independent doctors after practicing on a limited basis the previous day. Hagel said the doctors “all agreed that participation in practice” went well but felt that sitting out “was the right way to go.” Todd Collins, who took over for Cutler to start the second half Sunday and left that game with a stinger, will make his first start in three years. “The best way to provide leadership, I think, is to go out there and perform well,” said the 38-year-old Collins, who did not take a snap in 2008 and

NOTES: Steve Smith (ankle) was still in a protective boot, while safety Sherrod Martin (concussion) and right tackle Jeff Otah (knee) also remained sidelined. ... Linebacker Jamar Williams (neck) missed practice after being limited Wednesday. ... Wide receiver Armanti Edwards said he’s preparing to play Sunday following Dwayne Jarrett’s release. Edwards has been inactive the first four games. ... Coach John Fox was guarded in response to Peppers’ criticism from Wednesday that neither he nor GM Marty Hurney told him directly they were going to let him leave in free agency. “He knows how I feel and I know how he feels and I don’t share all those things in the newspaper,” Fox said.

est, the stakes highest and the challenge greatest. West will someday lose to a county rival or a conference rival, but that loss probably will come when no one is expecting it and the Falcons aren’t focused. Few had considered the possibility that West Rowan could lose to West Iredell last week, but it was just 20-14 with 4:30 left. The Falcons were nearly taken by surprise and they looked human, but there will be no element of surprise tonight. Common Sense says: West Rowan 27, Carson 14 The picks were 10-1 last week

interest from Division I powers. He had ACC visits. “But I had SAT issues,” Sifford said. He went to prep school at Fork Union. Then he attended VMI for a year. Finally, he found a home at Lenoir-Rhyne and became a fine corner for the Bears. He remembers picking off a pass intended for Catawba’s D.J. Summers. “I didn’t mind talking a little, and I kept telling Coach (David) Bennett on the sideline I had my corner locked down,” Sifford said. “Finally, they challenged me, and I picked it. D.J. was a great player. He’ll tell you the wind got that one.” Sifford excelled in the classroom at L-R and graduated with a 3.4 GPA while majoring in English and sociology. He credits Thomason and Secreast. “I took a lot of little pieces from both those guys with me to college,” he said. Now president of the “North Rowan Connection,” Sifford mentors, tutors and provides guidance for North youngsters. “Athletics is there as the vehicle for young people to get an education,” Sifford

Moss caught passes from Brett Favre as he prepares for Monday night’s road game against the New York Jets. “To all the Vikings fans that are coming to the Metrodome, pull your 84 jerseys out, man,” Moss said. “I think this is going to be a fun ride.” RAIDERS ALAMEDA, Calif. — Running back Darren McFadden (hamstring) is almost certain to miss Sunday’s game against San Diego.

“Me and Jordan, we helped each other grow as players a lot,” Peppers said, “practicing against each other and having those training camp battles.” There will be few surprises when they meet on Sunday. Gross has seen all of Peppers’ moves and Peppers knows Gross’ strengths and weaknesses. “I’ve never had this much familiarity with somebody I’m going against, and he could probably say the same thing about me,” Gross said. “But it’s the whole offensive line. He’s going to be on the right side probably as much as the left. He’s a guy you’ve got to account for. He’s a great player, and he makes a lot of plays. He’s done a lot this year already.” Peppers has been given more freedom with the Bears, who signed him to a sixyear, $91.5 million deal in March. He decides once the offense breaks the huddle where to line up to make the most impact. “That’s the main difference, more freedom on each side,” Peppers said.

CHARLOTTE — Jordan Gross estimates he’s lined up opposite Julius Peppers more than a thousand times in seven years of practices with the Panthers. On Sunday, they’ll go one-on-one again — only this time in a real game for the first time — when Peppers returns to Carolina with the Chicago Bears. “It’s not like there are any easy weeks in the NFL. This one is GROSS just a little more special than others,” said Gross, the Panthers’ left tackle. “I’ve been going against Pep as long as I’ve been in the pros, and he’s always given me a handful. It’s not going to be any different on Sunday.” Gross got a quick introduction to the NFL as a first-round pick in 2003, facing Peppers in training camp a year after the 6-foot-7 defensive end was the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year. While Gross flip-flopped from right and left tackle early in his career, he eventually settled into the left tackle spot. That meant daily competition with Peppers, whose 81 sacks in eight years with Carolina are a franchise record. “You come in and you go against the rookie of the year and a Pro Bowler, it makes you better,” Gross said. “I owe a lot to going against him and (Mike) Rucker as a young guy as well, but mostly Pep. I’d like to think that hopefully I made him a little better.” Peppers had some steep competition, too. Gross, a 2008 Pro Bowl pick, anchors an offensive line that last season allowed DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart to become the first teammates to each rush for over 1,100 yards.

“We run a similar defense to what we ran down there, but I can take the side I want to go to and play on that side.” Peppers’ return to Charlotte comes following a lengthy contract dispute that ended this spring with Carolina allowing him to leave in free agency without compensation. Gross thinks the fans will and should give him a positive reception, even with the Panthers (0-4) off to their worst start in 12 years. “He was a great asset to this team,” Gross said. “He did a lot for the Panthers, and he was a captain with me. I had no qualms about what he did in this uniform. I thought he was a great player here. I’m looking forward to playing against him. It’s going to be a lot of fun.” Gross doesn’t know how he’ll fare, noting “just because I knew it was coming didn’t always mean I could stop it” in practice. Peppers, too, is intrigued to see how he’ll match up against Gross when it counts. “It’s really a challenge because I never really played against him in a game situation,” Peppers said. “I’m wondering how I can do against him.”

Williams dismisses Graves from team Associated Press

Fifth-year senior Will Graves has been dismissed from North Carolina’s basketball team for failure to comply with team rules, head coach Roy Williams announced. Graves averaged 9.8 points per game last season and had a careerhigh 25 in the 2010 NIT championship game against Dayton. “This is 100 percent not related to any NCAA matters on campus,â€? Williams said in a statement. “I hate this for Will. He worked extremely hard this summer to get himself physically in the best shape he’s been in years, but he did not do everything he needed to do to be a part of our basketball program. This is a huge blow to our team, but an even bigger blow for Will. Playing for the Tar Heels meant so much to him.â€? Two seasons ago, Williams suspended Graves for not complying with team standards, sidelining him during the run to the 2009 national title. ď Ž DALLAS — Baylor guard LaceDarius Dunn was suspended from classes by the university amid allegations that the star player hit his girlfriend during a domestic dispute, his attorney said. Attorney Vikram Deivanayagam said it was too early to know whether the suspension would cause Dunn to miss the rest of the semester and be sidelined for at least the early part of the season. The university was following procedure for a student facing a felony charge, Deivanayagam said. Police say Dunn’s girlfriend, Lacharlesla Edwards, had her jaw broken in two places in a scuffle with Dunn. Edwards has said Dunn didn’t hit her, and her jaw wasn’t broken. She said she wants the charge dropped and her boyfriend reinstated to the team.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL MANHATTAN, Kan. — Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez rushed for 242 yards and four touchdowns and the seventh-ranked Cornhuskers ended a 99-year rivalry with Kansas State in the same lopsided fashion it began, thrashing the Wildcats 48-13. Roy Helu broke loose for a 68-yard TD run in a 21-point third quarter that made a rout of what could be the last game these two schools ever play. In a rousing start to their farewell Big 12 tour, the Huskers’ shortest touchdown play was 14 yards. Headed next year to the Big Ten, they said goodbye to Kansas State with a six-game winning streak that raised their overall record against the


Wildcats to 78-15-2, a series they began in 1911 with a 59-0 blowout and dominated almost start-to-finish. ď Ž CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina tight ends coach Allen Mogridge will take over as the program’s recruiting coordinator following last month’s resignation of John Blake. Mogridge is in his second year with the staff and also serves as special teams coordinator. He had coached previously at Western Carolina and Buffalo before returning to his alma mater. ď Ž TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Former Alabama football star DJ Hall and walk-on Darwin Salaam were arrested on drug charges in Tuscaloosa. The two were arrested at a hotel after police responded to complaints that guests were smoking marijuana in a room. Each was charged with possession of marijuana and another controlled substance. Hall was a star receiver for the Crimson Tide from 2004 through 2007. Salaam was a walk-on receiver who played at Stillman College before transferring to Alabama. ď Ž DETROIT — A devout Michigan State fan called timeout before doctors could install a pacemaker in his chest Thursday, deferring the procedure until after the school’s game this weekend against rival Michigan. Major Hester said he’s willing to risk death so that he can watch Saturday’s game in Ann Arbor on television. The 69-year-old retired office supply clerk said he put off the procedure until next week because he can’t risk something going wrong on the operating table that would prevent him from watching the game. ď Ž SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Notre Dame senior center Dan Wenger won’t play this season following two concussions in preseason camp. ď Ž LOS ANGELES — Southern California defensive coordinator Ed Orgeron was briefly hospitalized because of an infection in his broken right foot.

NFL CHARLOTTE — Lawyers for former Carolina Panthers receiver Rae Carruth will argue later this month that his conviction for plotting to kill his pregnant girlfriend should be reconsidered. A federal appeals court in Richmond, Va., is scheduled to hear arguments on Oct. 26 from attorneys who argue that crucial evidence wasn’t fully tested by cross-examination at Carruth’s 2001 trial Carruth was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder after the death of his girlfriend in 1999. The wounded Cherica Adams told police and a 911 operator and wrote a note alleging that Carruth was behind her shooting. Adams later died from her wounds. Her son is being raised by her mother. The 36-year-old Carruth was sentenced to 18 to 24 years in prison. His projected release date is 2018.

PESKY PECAN PESTS scriPPs howarD news service

small size, feathered legs and bright colors distinguish this small bantam rooster.

Yardsmart: mail-order chickens BY MAUREEN GILMER Scripps Howard News Service

darrell blackwelder/for the saLisBUrY Post

Pecan scab is a fungus that causes pecans to develop black spots. any in Rowan County have pecan trees and all seem to have a few problems. This seems to be the year when most trees have a full crop, even though these trees are known biennial bearers. As with any crop grown in our area, it seems like nature and pests pose problems for pecan lovers. Cooperative Extension usually receives quite a few DARRELL BLACKWELDER questions about pecans in the early fall just before harvest. Below are just a few.


Question: I have these black spots all over nut cases and leaves and often on the leaves. It’s causing the nuts to fall prematurely. What is this and how do I control the problem? Answer: The problem is caused by a fungus called pecan scab. Generally, there is no effective control with fungicidal sprays because of the sheer size of some of the older trees. It’s best to plant resistant varieties if possible. In the fall and winter, remove leaves, old hulls or pecans and limb

debris as soon as possible to prevent re-infection next summer. Question: My pecans have dark spots on the kernels. What is this and how do I prevent this? Answer: Stink bugs and leaffooted stink bugs are the culprits in this type of damage. These insects feed on the kernels when the shell is hardening, and black, chocolate-colored stains appear on nuts later. This is often referred to as biter pit. Many stink bug species overwinter in orchard debris (leaves and spent nut casings). Eggs are laid on grass and in soybean fields or vegetable gardens, producing as many as generations a year. Remove debris from around the tree and don’t plant soybeans nearby if possible. Reduce broadleaf weeds underneath the tree. Question: My pecans are fuzzy and shriveled. What causes this? Answer: This problem is a result of stress during growing season, often by inadequate moisture. Irrigation during late summer droughts is the only solution to this problem. Question: Sometimes a few months after I harvest my

Don’t let leaves lie on grass — they can reduce growth and turn grass yellow

The welcome rainfall and temperature changes we’ve experienced over the past few days have coerced home gardeners to consider landscape and other outdoor maintenance chores. There’s a number of chores home gardeners should consider before winter arrives in earnest. Lawns: The window for establishment of cool season fescue lawns is quickly narrowing. Early to mid-October is the latest fescue can be planted for optimum root growth during the winter. Delayed planting during cooler weather translates to slower germination and weaker establishment. Those with established lawns should continue to fertilize with split applications of nitrogen or turf fertilizer in late October and November. Pruning: Most heavy pruning is recommended in the spring. Boxwoods and holly should not be heavily pruned now. Those

that want to reduce new or arrant shrub growth can do this at any time; however it’s best to avoid pruning of azaleas, forsythia and other spring flowering plants. Maples should be pruned while in full leaf to avoid excessive bleeding. Judiciously prune these and birch trees now. Bulbs: October is the month to plant bulbs. Purchase spring flowering bulbs now. Garden centers have an ample supply which dwindles quickly closer to planting season. Late October/early November is the best time to plant tulips, daffodils and other spring flowering bulbs. Try some of the lesserknown bulbs to add interest. Dig up and store tender bulbs. Tender bulbs such as canna (actually a rhizome), gladiolus, and dahlias need to be dug up and stored during the winter months. Gardeners often gamble and let these overwinter without damage, however the risk is still there. Prolonged temperatures below 15 degrees fahrenheit kill these tender

bulbs. Mark perennials and bulbs: Many home gardeners get busy or forget to mark where perennials are planted. Marking or labeling is important because many perennials such as hosta dieback at the first killing frost, becoming invisible during the winter months. Often, perennials and bulbs are damaged setting new plants or planting bulbs. Use plastic markers with water-proof markers to mark areas and protect both perennials and bulbs. Compost leaves: Don’t let leaves lie on grass for extended periods. Leaves reduce growth, making grass turn yellow, especially on newly planted lawns. Composting eliminates leaves and provides mulch/nutrients to next season’s flowers and shrubs. Evaluate your landscape: Take time to walk through the landscape and determine what needs to be done for improvement. Make notes and set goals for next season. Be careful not to take on too many tasks at once.

My husband calls the big cardboard TV box and its heat lamp our “clandestine chicken lab.” Inside is a flock of multicolored baby chicks. As long as I’m going to raise birds, I don’t want ordinary white or yellow. I want them to be beautiful, colorful, productive and exotic. The only way to find that many varieties to choose from is to buy chicks from a catalog. And believe it or not, they’re delivered, via the U.S. mail. Shopping for chickens online is loads of fun. You’ll find amazing breeds that you would never see at a local feed or pet store; their plumage is eye-popping. Silkies look like little cotton balls. Araucanas lay blue eggs. Take your time and learn as you read because the possibilities are endless. Mature chickens vary in size from large meat breeds to tiny bantams. If you have limited space, bantams are a good choice. They come in so many colors and fancy forms that they are all you need for a great start. They are small enough to be easily handled, and safe for young children. Their eggs are small, though. For a suburban or rural yard, heavy egg-producing medium-sized breeds can easily feed a family. Some breeds are famous for their peaceful natures, which means they make good family birds. Large meat breeds are expensive to feed for the number of eggs they lay. Some exotic breeds, though beautiful, may not be the best egg layers. So don’t make your choice exclusively based on color. Take special note of details such as tolerance of heat or cold to better match them to your regional climate. These examples show how important it is to read the descriptions in the catalog thoroughly to make the perfect choice for your home and lifestyle. Keep in mind that a hen will not begin laying until she is mature (about 4 to 6 months old). Hatcheries will ship day-old chicks until the middle of November, and then start again in early spring. Birds purchased in the fall will have to survive the winter to mature and begin laying by summer. That’s why most people in colder climates buy their mail-order chicks in the spring, and then wait many months for the eggs. A minimum order of 25 chicks is necessary so the babies can keep one another warm during shipping. Most people don’t have room or the need for so many adult chickens. The solution is to coordinate with like-minded friends, neighbors and family to share the order. If you’re ambitious, consider raising all the birds yourself and selling the exotics at a high price when they are teenage pullets (young hens) to cover your startup costs. Male chicks become roosters. These iconic farmyard birds don’t just crow at dawn, they can crow all day and all night as well. They also become aggressive with age. This is why you can buy your chicks as females, males or a mixture called “straight run.” It’s best to spend a bit more money for guaranteed hens. Buying straight run produces about half roosters, which can be hard to get rid of because no one else wants them unless it’s for the meat. To learn more, try my favorite catalog, Murray McMurray Hatcheries. Visit the company’s online site,, or call 800-456-3280 for a free catalog. It offers many breeds of day-old chicks as well as specially composed collections that take the guesswork out of the purchase for beginners. For example, one group features heavy egg layers with exotic colors for a decorative flock that’s also productive. Raising chickens is rewarding because you can expect an egg a day from some breeds (except during their annual molting season). They provide a wonderful learning experience for children and parents, too. If you’re an organic gardener, consider this: Every time you clean the coop, you’ll enrich your soil with nature’s best free fertilizer. Maureen Gilmer is a horticulturist.

North Carolina SBI agent accused of misleading innocence panel that he was unable to do a second test on the sample. Adding to the confusion is that the commissioner and Deaver appear to talk over each other during the question. “As best we can tell, it appears that the Innocence Commission is trying to hold our client in criminal contempt for providing a confusing answer to a confusing question when the transcript clearly indicates that our client had definitively and accurately addressed the same topic in previous testimony,” Deaver’s attorney Philip R. Isley said in a statement. At another hearing on the Taylor case this year, Deaver fully explained that a followup test on the sample provided a negative result. Taylor was declared innocent after that second hearing. Deaver’s testimony triggered fresh questions about the SBI lab’s policies and procedures, leading to an independent review that concluded SBI analysts had frequently misstated or falsely report-

ed blood evidence during a 16-year period ending in 2003. The review called into question some 200 cases. Some egregious violations found during the inquest were linked to Deaver. In two of the cases, including one that ended in an execution, Deaver’s final report on blood analyses said his tests “revealed the presence of blood” when his notes indicated negative results from follow-up tests. His notes indicate that he got a negative result because he didn’t have enough sample left for the confirmatory test. Kendra MontgomeryBlinn, the executive director of the Innocence Inquiry Commission, said in Thursday’s motion that Deaver also failed to disclose all the testing to her in a telephone conversation before the hearings. “Agent Deaver’s failure to disclose all testing to Montgomery-Blinn during their telephone conversation demonstrates his willingness to mislead the Commission,” she wrote in the motion.

NC Coca-Cola bottler to pay $495K on racial discrimination claims CHARLOTTE (AP) — The second-largest bottler of Coca-Cola products in the nation will pay $495,000 to settle a federal case involving charges of racially discriminatory hiring practices. The Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated, a Charlotte-based firm that is separate from the Atlantabased Coca-Cola Company, will pay the money in back wages plus interest to 95 black and Hispanic jobseekers who applied for sales positions in 2002, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. In addition, the bottler has agreed to offer jobs to those applicants until at least 23 are

hired. The labor department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs said an investigation determined that qualified nonwhite applicants were not being hired at the same rate as qualified white applicants. In some cases, the black and Latino applicants had more experience and education than some of the whites who did get jobs, according to the agency. The office launched the investigation because the bottler is a federal contractor, supplying Coke-brand products to a number of military and government agencies. “Being a federal contractor is a privilege that comes

with an obligation to ensure equal opportunity in employment,” said Patricia Shiu, director of the contract compliance office, in a statement. The bottler agreed to the settlement, but admits no wrongdoing in the case, according to a statement provided by Alison Patient, director of corporate affairs at the company. “Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated did not and does not discriminate against any person for any reason,” the statement said. “There were legitimate non-discriminatory reasons for not hiring certain applicants who are the subject of this claim.”

RALEIGH (AP) — A Wake County woman has been charged with murder after sheriff’s deputies found the body of her missing boyfriend hidden in their home. Multiple media outlets reported that 41-year-old Wendy Edmond Green was charged with first-degree murder early Thursday. Family members had reported 52-year-old David Reuben Green Jr. of Wake County missing last month. Investigators found Green’s body in the home Wednesday. Investigators say they think he had been killed at the home in April. Neighbors said they hadn’t seen him since then. The body has been sent to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Chapel Hill to determine the cause of death. Wendy Green was being held in the Wake County jail. It was unclear if she had an attorney.

Agencies want ruling on open records CHARLOTTE (AP) — Some state agencies and local governments are waiting to see how a new law applies to employee records. The Charlotte Observer reported Charlotte is one of five state agencies or local governments asking North Carolina’s attorney general if the new law applies to records before the law took effect Oct. 1. North Carolina’s old law only allowed the release of an employee’s salary, position and job status. The new law adds information about suspensions, demotions and dismissals. Attorney general’s spokeswoman Noelle Talley says an opinion on the new law should be ready soon. Charlotte City Attorney Mac McCarley says the city is delaying releasing information about a former police officer because the city doesn’t want to face liability for improperly releasing information.

ELIZABETH CITY (AP) — A part-time police officer has been charged with murder in the shooting death of a fellow student at a Bible college in North Carolina. Multiple media outlets reported 23-year-old Christopher David Amyx was charged late Wednesday with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Jonathan Schipper of Havelock. Both were students at Mid-Atlantic Christian University in Elizabeth City, a school with fewer than 200 students. Amyx is being held without bond. It was unclear if he

Man in nursing home shootings wants trial moved

Downpour douses drought’s damage in eastern NC

CARTHAGE (AP) — A man accused of killing eight people at a North Carolina nursing home wants his trial moved to another county. The Fayetteville Observer reports Robert Stewart wants his trial for the shootings in Carthage moved out of Moore County. His attorneys argued Wednesday that Stewart can’t receive a fair trial in Moore County because most potential jurors have already made up their minds about the case. The lawyers pointed to a poll they commissioned suggesting that likely jurors in Moore and four surrounding counties already had decided what they think happened. District Attorney Maureen Krueger argued the survey can’t predict whether actual jurors would be biased. Stewart is charged with eight counts of first-degree murder in the March 29, 2009, shooting at the Pinelake Health and Rehabilitation Center.

RALEIGH (AP) — All those rain clouds over eastern North Carolina had at least one silver lining: no more risk of drought. The state Drought Management Advisory Council released an advisory Thursday showing that dry conditions have been washed away in much of the state. The eastern portion of the state saw record rainfall in some areas last week. That led to damaging floods in at least 19 counties. Not every county is free of drought risk. The council says 12 counties are experiencing a moderate drought, and 30 others are abnormally dry. Those counties are concentrated in the central and western portions, which saw much less rain last week.

City of Salisbury Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice


GARNER (AP) — Police say a Raleigh teenager fired guns into two cars in Garner and may have shot and killed a dog. Multiple media outlets reported Thursday that 18-yearold Cody Daniel Pullen of Raleigh faces three counts of assault with a deadly weapon and six counts of possessing a stolen gun. Police say the shootings happened along a Garner road Wednesday night. No one in the first car was injured, but two people in the second vehicle had minor injuries. Investigators are also probing whether Pullen was responsible for shooting two dogs nearby. One dog died and the second was wounded. The arrest warrant says Pullen had four rifles and two shotguns.

The City of Salisbury will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, October 19, 2010, at 4:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 217 South Main Street, Salisbury, North Carolina, concerning the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI). The report is an assessment of potential impediments or barriers to fair housing choice in the city based on race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, sex, disability, familial status or any arbitrary factor. The following impediments to fair housing in Salisbury and proposed actions were identified: 1. Racial/Ethnic and Income Concentration. While very few fair housing complaints have been registered over the past ten years, a number of Census tracts have minority concentration exceeding 80 percent and concentrated poverty. Action: The City should continue to promote fair housing practices while minimizing or eliminating discrimination in housing practices whenever they are identified. 2. Affordable Housing Stock for Households Earning Less than $25,000 Annually. Housing demand in this category has increased dramatically over the past decade. The City should work to expand housing programs to meet the needs of this group. 3. Visitability. The city should adopt a Visitability Policy ensuring that new housing construction that uses public assistance is user-friendly to all persons regardless of physical abilities. 4. and 5. Emergency Shelters and Transitional Housing. The City should amend its Land Development Ordinance to specifically define these use classifications and ensure they are treated identically to similar residential uses. 6. Rehabilitating Existing Housing. The City should actively pursue local application of the NC Rehabilitation Code in order to reduce the costs of rehabilitating older housing stock. 7. Conventional Home Loan Financing. An examination of 2008 HMDA data showed a noticeable gap in home loan origination and denial rates between White and minority applicants. The City should engage lending institutions to evaluate home mortgage lending patterns by race/ethnicity. 8. Fair Housing Coordination. The city should engage the Human Relations Council in active fair housing outreach and work to improve coordination between housing partners and agencies. 9. Minority Homeownership. The City should continue to invest in homeownership opportunities in areas with substantial minority populations. The full draft report is available for public review at the following locations: • Rowan County Public Library, 201 West Fisher Street • City Hall - Community Planning Services, 217 South Main Street • Online – Citizens are invited to review the report and provide comments at the public hearing. Written comments may be sent to City of Salisbury, Community Planning Services, PO Box 479, Salisbury, NC 28145-0479, or The meeting location is physically-accessible to persons with disabilities. If any persons with limited English proficiency or persons with mobility, visual or hearing impairments need special accommodations, please notify Community Planning Services at 704-638-5230 at least five (5) days in advance.

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s innocence commission accused an agent with the state’s top law enforcement agency Thursday of intentionally misleading the panel during testimony in a landmark case that ended in exoneration. A court motion filed in Wake County requests a hearing to decide whether State Bureau of Investigation Agent Duane Deaver should be held in criminal contempt. The commission believes Deaver failed to disclose all his blood testing on a key sample to the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission. The motion focuses on confusing and seemingly contradictory comments Deaver gave to a commission investigator and testimony at a hearing last year into the murder conviction of Greg Taylor. At first Deaver said during the hearing that a followup blood test on a sample was negative. Later, a commissioner sought clarification and Deaver appeared to say

Obama rejects bill that could worsen foreclosure mess



WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has rejected a bill that the White House fears could worsen the mounting problems caused by flawed or misleading documents used by banks in home foreclosures. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Thursday that Obama is sending a newly passed bill back to Congress to be fixed because the current version has “unintended consequences on consumer protections.” The bill would loosen the process for providing a notary’s seal to documents and allow them to be done electronically. Obama will not sign a bill that would allow foreclosure and other documents to be accepted among multiple states. Consumer advocates and state officials had argued the legislation would make it difficult for homeowners to challenge foreclosure documents prepared in other states. O. Max Gardner, a consumer lawyer in Shelby, N.C., said the bill would have made the problems with foreclosure documents worse. That’s because mortgage companies would have been able to mass-produce documents and affix a digital version of a notary’s seal rather than one on paper.

WASHINGTON (AP) — More than 89,000 stimulus payments of $250 each went to people who were either dead or in prison, a government investigator says in a new report. The payments, which were part of last year’s massive economic recovery package, were meant to increase consumer spending to help stimulate the economy. But about $18 million went to nearly 72,000 people who were dead, according to the report by the Social Security Administration’s inspector general. The report estimates that a little more than half of those payments were returned. An additional $4.3 million went to more than 17,000 prison inmates, the report said. Most of the inmates, it turns out, were eligible to get the payments because they were newly incarcerated and had been receiving Social Security before they were locked up. In all, the $250 payments were sent to about 52 million people who receive either Social Security or Supplemental Security Income, at a cost of about $13 billion. Other federal retirees also received the payments, but they were not part of the inspector general’s review.

gle told a crowd of supporters that the country needs to address a “militant terrorist situation” that has allowed Islamic religious law to take hold in some American cities. Her comments came at a rally of tea party supporters in the Nevada resort town of Mesquite last week after the candidate was asked about Muslims angling to take over the country, and marked the latest of several controversial remarks by the Nevada Republican. In a recording of the rally provided to The Associated Press by the Mesquite Local News, a man is heard asking Angle: “I keep hearing about Muslims wanting to take over the United States ... on a TV program just last night, I saw that they are taking over a city in Michigan and the residents of the city, they want them out. They want them out. So, I want to hear your thoughts about that.” Angle responds that “we’re talking about a militant terrorist situation, which I believe it isn’t a widespread thing, but it is enough that we need to address, and we have been addressing it.” “My thoughts are these, first of all, Dearborn, Michigan, and Frankford, Texas are on American soil, and under constitutional law. Not Sharia law. And I don’t know how that happened in the United States,” she said. “It seems to me there is something fundamentally wrong with allowing a foreign system of law to even take hold in any municipality


WASHINGTON (AP) — Heavy U.S. reliance on private security in Afghanistan has helped to line the pockets of the Taliban because contractors often don’t vet local recruits and wind up hiring warlords and thugs, Senate investigators said Thursday. The finding, in a report by the Senate Armed Services Committee, follows a separate congressional inquiry in June that concluded trucking contractors pay tens of millions of dollars a year to local warlords for convoy protection. Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate panel, said he is worried the U.S. is unknowingly fostering the growth of Taliban-linked militias at a time when Kabul is struggling to recruit its own soldiers and police officers. “Almost all are Afghans. Almost all are armed,” Levin, a Michigan Democrat, said of the army of young men working under U.S. contracts. “We need to shut off the spigot of U.S. dollars flowing into the pockets of warlords and power brokers who act contrary to our interests and contribute to the corruption that weakens the support of the Afghan people for their government,” he added.

Leader says seeking spirituality through yoga not Christian way

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — This corn turns out to be a very good neighbor. Corn that’s been genetically engineered to resist attacking borers produces a “halo effect” that provides huge benefits to other corn planted nearby, a new study finds. Since the borers that attack the genetically modified crops die, there are fewer of them to go after the non-modified version. Given that the corn borer has cost U.S. farmers $1 billion a year, the economic benefits are dramatic, according to the report in today’s edition of the journal Science. The genetically modified plants, called Bt corn, have had an economic benefit of $6.9 billion during the past 14 years in the five Upper Midwest corn-producing states studied, concluded the researchers. They were led by William Hutchison, head of the entomology department at the University of Minnesota, and Paul Mitchell, an agricultural economist at the University of Wisconsin. They said they were surprised to find that non-Bt corn

Henry Cuellar of Texas said the search for David Hartley was temporarily halted Wednesday evening as Mexican officials “worried about being ambushed.” He said the search resumed Thursday morning, but Mexican searchers are “doing this under threat of their lives.” Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez says the area where the shooting allegedly happened while Hartley and his wife explored the lake on Jet Skies is a stronghold of the Zeta drug gang. Gonzalez says he’s sent word to Zetas that he wants the body returned and has no plans to prosecute. Cuellar and two other area congressmen say Mexico is “doing the best that they can.”

KOLONTAR, Hungary (AP) — The toxic red sludge that burst out of a Hungarian factory’s reservoir reached the mighty Danube on Thursday after wreaking havoc on smaller rivers and creeks, and downstream nations rushed to test their waters. The European Union and environmental officials fear an environmental catastrophe affecting half a dozen nations if the red sludge, a waste product of making aluminum, contaminates the Danube, Europe’s secondlongest river. Officials from Croatia, Serbia and Romania were taking river samples every few hours Thursday but hoping that the Danube’s huge water volume would blunt the impact of the spill. The Hungarian reservoir break on Monday disgorged a toxic torrent through three villages and creeks that flow into waterways connected to the Danube. Creeks in Kolontar, the western village closest to the spill site, were still swollen and ochre red days later and villagers said they were devoid of fish. The red sludge reached the western branch of the Danube early Thursday and its broad, main stretch by noon, Hungarian rescue agency spokesman Tibor Dobson told the state MTI news agency.

acres actually reaped 62 percent of the benefit, or $4.3 billion. That’s because of the pest-control effect and because non-Bt seed is cheaper. “We knew there was a benefit but we didn’t realize it was going to be that high,” Hutchison said in an interMOHLER view.

Ask Amy: Birthday check has man counting pennies check for half the amount she has given me in the past. I know for a fact that she still gives her other children and daughters-in-law the same larger amount. I was a little disgusted by this spiteful/vengeful behavior. Should I accept the check and say thank you, or should I respectfully return it to her and say that I would like to be treated like the rest of her children and their respective spouses? — Angry Son-in-law Dear Angry: It is clear from your letter that both your mother and mother-in-law traditionally give money as gifts, but I believe that one mark of true adulthood is the impulse not to take money from your elders. Evidently, you and your wife aren’t quite there yet. Your mother-in-law is obviously being petty and mean-spirited. You play into her hands by caring so much about her

behavior. When you receive a gift, no matter what it is, you should thank the giver. If you are unable to rise above the inequity, you could raise it with your mother-inlaw by saying, “I know things are tense at times between us, and I feel that this is reflected in the fact that you’ve chosen to give unequally to me and your other in-laws. All I can say is that we’re doing our best to raise the kids knowing that we don’t favor one over the other, and I wish you could do the same.” Dear Amy: Over the course of three months, my wife of 16 years called a male “friend” more than 2,500 times and sent him more than 6,000 text messages. The calls were made at all times of the day (with three calls being between 2 and 4 a.m. one night when she was spending the night with a girlfriend). The texts occurred all through the day and night. When I confronted her

she became very defensive and claimed this was just a really good friend she had known for a long time. She says that there is nothing wrong with what she’s doing. My wife now has a device with Internet access that allows her to text without any record of who she is texting. Am I stupid, ignorant or wrong to have suspicions — or correct in thinking this is an affair? — Worried Dear Worried: If this is an innocent case of being in touch with an old friend, then you should express your interest in your wife’s life by asking her to introduce you to him. Then you should invite him to dinner so that you can get to know the person who is so fascinating that your wife needs to call him repeatedly in the middle of the night and send him thousands of text messages. You are not stupid, ignorant or wrong to suspect that

something is amiss. Your wife is deceiving you and she is being defensive because she knows this is wrong. Dear Amy: “Seeks Office Protocol” didn’t like the fact that his office celebrated everybody’s birthday — except for his. Here’s how my office handles this: On your birthday, YOU are responsible for bringing in treats, etc., for your colleagues. This solution eliminates the need for any one person to coordinate things. And of course if a person doesn’t want to celebrate his birthday, then he can choose to

Dear Amy: I have had a very rocky relationship with my in-laws for the past three years, for a variety of reasons. We are at the point where we just try to be civil when we’re in each other’s company, for the sake of my wife and two daughters. ASK Recently, I AMY turned 35, and my mother-in-law gave me a check for this occasion. In the past, each year she has always given me a certain amount. She gives the same amount of money to her children and daughtersin-law on their birthdays. This year, my mother-inlaw asked my wife what my parents gave her for her 35th birthday, two years ago. After hearing the answer, my mother-in-law gave me a

Final defense lawyer offers argument in Smith case LOS ANGELES (AP) — A lawyer for Anna Nicole Smith’s boyfriend Howard K. Stern says he cherished Smith and would never have been part of an alleged scheme to provide drugs that could hurt the former Playboy model. Attorney Steve Sadow told jurors during his closing argument Thursday that Stern was not only Smith’s lawyer and manager but also her best friend and lover. Stern and Drs. Sandeep Kapoor and Khristine Eroshevich have pleaded not guilty to conspiring to provide excessive prescription drugs to an addict and other charges. Sadow is the last of the three defense lawyers to address the jury. He warned the panel that prosecutors were trying to win at all costs, rather than tell jurors the truth.

Dear P.M.: Yes, you can freeze beets. Wash them with a vegetable brush and sort according to size. Leave the tap root but trim tops leaving an inch of stem. Cook in boiling water until tender (about half an hour). Drain water. Cool beets (in ice water makes it quicker), peel (remove stem and tap root) and cut into slices or quarters. Package, seal, label and freeze.

Dear Roxy: Super washing soda is made by Arm & Hammer. It can usually be found in the laundry aisle of your grocery store.

You can call Arm & Hammer's customer-service department and ask them for the closest retailer that sells

Dear Sara: I'm trying to find washing soda. I wanted to give homemade laundry detergent a try, so today I went out and bought Zote and Borax, but I could not find the washing soda. They did have large boxes of Arm & Hammer baking soda, but I'm guessing that won't work as a substitute, correct? Do you know where to find this stuff? — Roxy,




Top off with 1 gallon water. Mix and pour into your bottles. Use a scrubber and squeegee if windows are really dirty.


Dear Sara: Do you have a recipe for making an outdoor window cleaner? I love using Windex Outdoor Multi-Surface cleaner, which attaches to a hose, but I go through one bottle every time I clean my outside windows, which is very often here in Florida. I have SARA some empty NOEL hose-attached bottles. I wondered whether there is are ingredients that I could mix for my own batch instead of buying the outdoor window cleaner. The product is not cheap (varies from $7.99 to $9.99 a bottle). Your help would be appreciated! — Bonnie R.,

Cat-scratch disease causes numb feet Dear Dr. Gott: I am always interested in peripheral neuropathy because it was one of the many later symptoms I developed when I acquired bartonella henselae. However, I apparently acquired the bartonella approximately 16 years ago. I recall a cat scratch from a DR. PETER feral kitten that did not GOTT heal for several months. I wasn’t diagnosed until a little over two years ago when I failed to respond to Lyme-disease treatment. In addition to alpha-lipoic acid, my doctor put me on Levaquin. Amazingly, the shoulder pain, chronic gallbladder infection, swallowing problems, ankle swelling and chronic stomach ulcer went away. The numbness in my feet and fibromyalgia did not disappear but got better. My point is that one of the symptoms of bartonella is numbness of the feet. It is rarely looked at as the cause of peripheral neuropathy. I had none of the diabetic or circulatory problems that normally cause it. I am still scratching my head as to why my now-retired doctor did not diagnose it earlier. It would have made my recovery from Lyme disease so much easier. Dear reader: Bartonella henselae, also known as catscratch disease, is a bacterium that enters the body at the site of the scratch. Adult cats can spread the disease, but it more commonly comes from kittens. Lymph nodes, prima-

rily those around the arms, head and neck, become swollen. Lack of normal appetite, fever, headache, fatigue and transient peripheral neuropathy may result. Those commonly infected are people with a compromised immune system. Lyme disease presents with the same symptoms, so it is no wonder your physician would have zeroed in on that possibility. You can perhaps understand why some diseases and disorders are discovered following a process of exclusion. The symptoms are the same, and, at times, the treatment is the same. The Levaquin you were prescribed is a broad-spectrum antibiotic used to treat bronchitis, pneumonia, skin infections, the sinuses, UTIs, ears, chlamydia and more. You are correct that peripheral neuropathy is not commonly linked to catscratch disease. It is not one of the more common symptoms, but there is a definite link that should not be overlooked when making a diagnosis. Thank you for writing and sharing your interesting case. Dear Dr. Gott: I read your column daily but have never seen anything on pudendal nerve entrapment. Any information would be appreciated. Dear reader: Pudendal nerve entrapment occurs when a nerve in the pelvic area becomes compressed or trapped. It can be the result of post-surgical scarring, pregnancy or trauma. Activities such as riding a bicycle are known to trigger the condition. Symptoms include pain when sitting that is reduced or eliminated by standing, lying

down or when on a toilet seat; paresthesias in the buttock and genital areas; urinary hesitancy and/or urgency; constipation; impotence; sexual dysfunction; and a great deal more. Treatment varies depending on the underlying cause and how long symptoms have been present. If you are a cyclist, that prolonged activity should be reduced. There are a number of medications -nerve stabilizers, antidepressants or anticonvulsants -- that might reduce or alleviate the pain. When all else fails, treatments such as corticosteroid injections or nerve blocks may be appropriate. Speak with your physician who knows your history and can recommend appropriate advice or medication. Then, if and when conservative measures fail, request referral to a top-notch surgeon for the problem. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “Managing Chronic Pain.” Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order to Newsletter, P.O.

Bridge hand: The lead made all the difference er should guess the hearts. It is unlikely that West would adopt this line of defense with only one trump. At the table, West led the club king: ace, three, four. South, knowing that clubs were 6-1 (East would have played high-low with a doubleton), was aware that the odds had changed in the trump suit. He cashed dummy’s ace, then played a heart to his jack. Disaster -- West won with the queen and cashed his three black-suit winners.

BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

Neil Armstrong, when making the 2005 graduation speech at the University of Southern California, said, “I hope you become comfortable with the use of logic without being deceived into concluding that logic will inevitably lead you to the correct conclusion.” At the bridge table, the opening lead might — or might not — lead you to the correct conclusion. Today’s deal occurred in a social game. What should West lead against four hearts? If West had passed, North would have responded two no-trump, asking his partner whether he was minimum or maximum. After the threeclub overcall, though, North took a shot at game, remembering that a three-heart response would be purely competitive, not game-invitational. (A solution to this problem that I first met in New

Zealand might appeal to you. Play that responder’s double of a three-level overcall is game-invitational in opener’s major.) It would be normal for West to lead the spade king (assuming his partnership plays ace from A-K-x). Then, when he cashes the ace, he would be announcing a doubleton. If West does that, then shifts to the club king, declar-
