Time Warner speeds up as Fibrant service begins BY EMILY FORD

As Salisbury officially launched its Fibrant fiber-optic service this week, Time Warner Cable announced it would speed up its own Internet service in Rowan and the region.

But Fibrant already offers the new Internet download speeds touted by Time Warner, a city official said. “We just haven’t advertised it,” Assistant City Manager Doug Paris said. And Fibrant’s top available speed is 10 times faster than the cable giant’s when upload-

ing, Paris said. Uploading is sending information out, like video chatting on Skype. Downloading is bringing information in, like opening a photo attachment in an e-mail. “We’re cheaper, and we’re faster,” Paris said. The city launched Fibrant

on Monday, offering Internet, cable TV and digital phone service. The next day, Time Warner Cable announced new Internet download speeds in the Charlotte area of up to 50 megabits per second — twice as fast as Fibrant’s quickest advertised speed of 25 Mbps.

A ‘TRANSFORMATIONAL’ YEAR Chamber looks back, keeps focus on future

Pless, the third to hold post, out after 21⁄2 years

Winston Kelley, executive director of NAsCAr hall of fame, was the featured speaker at the rowan Chamber of Commerce’s 85th Annual meeting thursday night.

“We enjoy being in the community and working with the folks here.” LEE SNOW accepting the Chamber Champion Small Business of the Year Award for Snow Benefits Group

Snow was traveling out of state with his wife, who is having health problems, and was unable to attend. His son and colleague in the family business, Lee Snow, accepted the award on his behalf. “We enjoy being in the community and working with the folks here,” Lee Snow said. Calling Snow Benefits Group “a well-kept secret in Salisbury,” he recounted the company’s history and its work providing insurance and other services to local businesses. “(The award) means a lot to us, and especially him,” Snow said on behalf of his father. Cindy Hart of Great American Publishing was the recipient of the 2010 Paul E. Fisher Volunteer of the Year Award. An incoming 2011 Chamber of Commerce officer, Hart has led the group’s Women In Business initiative and is a past re-

cipient of the Small Business of the Year Award. The night’s keynote speaker was Winston Kelley, executive director of the HART NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte. The longtime Motor Radio Network announcer and former Duke Energy Carolinas executive talked of the economic impact that the Hall of Fame is having on the region. One thing Kelley said right away: recent news reports that the Hall of Fame isn’t attracting as many visitors as expected don’t tell the whole story. “It’s actually doing a whole lot better than you might have heard,” Kelley said. The Hall of Fame is part of

a large downtown Charlotte complex, and is much more than just a “car museum,” he said. Kelley highlighted the impact the Hall of Fame is having as part of a nearly $6 billion motorsports industry in North Carolina. And, he said, the convention facilities surrounding the new NASCAR-themed complex have helped the region draw the National Rifle Association and made Charlotte a possible choice for the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Current Chamber members said they were pleased to have the opportunity to meet others and honor those who received awards. “I think the Chamber is doing an excellent job and providing the tools to help any business succeed, if they’re willing to look for the help,” said Tyler Weant, owner of Spencer-based Elium Exterminator Co. Mark Lewis, senior vice president of Bank of North Carolina, said the Chamber offered unparalleled opportunities for networking, as well as a means for local residents’ concerns to


Republicans jockey for leadership positions in Raleigh RALEIGH (AP) — Republican lawmakers are ratcheting up their campaigns for key leadership posts in the General Assembly following Election Day returns that will put them in control of both chambers. At least four House Republican members have indicated they’re running for speaker or are interested in the job, including Minority Leader Paul Stam of Wake County and Minority Whip Thom Tillis of Mecklenburg County. Reps. Mitch Gillespie of McDowell County and Ric Killian of Mecklenburg County also said Thursday they’re seeking the top job. In the Senate, Republicans are coalescing around Minority Leader Phil Berger of Rockingham County for the top job — Sen-

At its 85th annual meeting, the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce reflected on a year that was “transformational.” That word was repeated throughout the night by those gathered to celebrate the group’s accomplishments and to honor the small business and the volunteer of the year. “From my perspective, 2010 has been a transformational year for our Chamber and our community,” said Skip Wood, outgoing Chamber board chairman. He cited the accomplishments of Chamber members and the beginnings of new projects such as the I-85 bridge replacement at the Yadkin River. “Do I think our challenges are all over? Nope. … Do I wake up every morning thinking the glass is half full? Yes,” Wood said. Soon after, LOEBLEIN Wood welcomed the chairman-elect, Tom Loeblein, who will lead the Chamber of Commerce board in 2011. Loeblein said that the Chamber was “financially strong” and ready to offer leadership in the time of recovery ahead. The 2010 Chamber Champion Small Business of the Year Award was presented to Snow Benefits Group of Salisbury, headed by Ed Snow. Snow has been a member of the chamber for decades. Snow Benefits Group was founded in 1974. The Chamber cited Snow’s many accomplishments, including his leadership in the Chamber’s annual membership drive and his volunteerism, particularly in the Business After Hours program and the Chamber’s annual Business Show.

ate president pro tempore. Berger, the minority leader for the past six years, has been widely praised by fellow Republicans for organizing and building up a campaign war chest to compete with Senate Democrats this fall. “We’re unified around Sen. Berger, and more importantly we’re unified around our agenda,” said Sen. Bob Rucho, R-Mecklenburg, who challenged Berger for minority leader two years ago. The other 2008 challenger, Sen. Pete Brunstetter, R-Forsyth, also said Thursday he didn’t believe anyone would run against Berger for pro tem. The scramble began picking up two days after the GOP wrested control of the two chambers from the Democrats, who

haven’t been out of power in both chambers simultaneously since 1898. Although the full House and Senate don’t elect a speaker or pro tem until the Legislature reconvenes Jan. 26, Republicans who won Tuesday meet in two weeks to pick their nominees for both posts, as well as jobs in their respective caucuses such as majority leader. The speaker and pro tempore will become the top Republican leaders in state government, setting the tone for what legislation will be heard and which lawmakers will get plum committee assignments. They’ll also serve as chief negotiators with, and likely foils of, Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue.

CHINA GROVE — Town staff confirmed Thursday that Town Manager Bill Pless “has been let go.” According to town attorney Tom Brooke, Pless was terminated because of unsatisfactory job performance. Brooke said that starting in September, the China Grove town board laid out specific goals. Brooke said Pless had not met those goals. Pless is no longer listed on the town’s website as an employee. The board had been meeting in closed session since September to evaluate his performance. “Basically as a result of those evaluations, the board determine he wasn’t satisfactorily performing his job,” Brooke said. Part of the evaluation included goals and changes the board set that needed to be made. “He didn’t make them,” Brook said. After Tuesday night’s meeting, where the board conducted an evaluation, Pless was terminated. The board made a motion to dismiss “for cause after evaluation for failure to perform duties as directed by the board,” according to information


Man with plans of bombing abortion clinic to plead guilty GREENSBORO (AP) — A former Rowan County resident who called himself an “extremist radical fundamentalist” has agreed to plead guilty to giving bomb-making instructions to a confidential informant who said he planned to attack an abortion clinic, according to court documents. Justin Carl Moose, 26, of Concord, faces up to 20 years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000, according to a plea agreement filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Greensboro. According to the plea agreement, Moose will plead guilty to the charge of distributing information pertaining to the manufacturing and use of an explosive. Moose is scheduled to be sentenced March 2 in Winston-Salem. “He has taken responsibility for his conduct, which is set out in the plea agreement,” said Moose’s at- MOOSE torney, Walter Holton Jr. Moose was arrested by the FBI in September after Planned Parenthood alerted the agency that he was advocating violence against abortion clinics on his Facebook page. On his Facebook page, Moose said he graduated from South Rowan High School and attended Royal Oaks Baptist Church in Kannapolis. According to documents filed by federal prosecutors, Moose had described himself as a “freedom fighter” on his page, advocating opposition to abortion “by any means necessary and at any cost.”

Students protest racist BUSINESS graffiti in tunnel at NC State RALEIGH (AP) — A reappearance of racist graffiti directed at President Barack Obama has protesters at North Carolina State University calling for changes to a part of campus dedicated to anything-goes speech. Student protesters blocked access overnight to the Free Expression Tunnel, a major pedestrian thoroughfare that connects two parts of the Raleigh campus divided by railroad tracks. By late Thursday morning, although some protesters remained, the students had stopped their blockade, university spokesman Keith Nichols said. Chancellor Randy Woodson met with students protesting at the tunnel and elsewhere on campus. “The chancellor went down and visited with the students for about half an hour this morning and had a very constructive conversation,” Nichols said. Woodson has condemned the graffiti, which has been painted over. It apparently depicted Obama along with

racist and anti-gay slurs. The Free Expression Tunnel was built in 1939, and was dedicated to freewheeling student speech in the 1960s. Sentiments painted or posted in the tunnel commonly range from the political to the mundane. “Students are free to say whatever they like, and if you walk through the tunnel on any given day you’ll see advertisements for events, or you’ll see someone complaining about a boyfriend or girlfriend,” Nichols said. The several dozen student protesters, though, say they want tighter restrictions on what can be depicted inside the tunnel. Some of the proposed remedies include more surveillance cameras and stricter enforcement of a request, posted on a sign near the tunnel, that asks students to refrain from offensive messages. “Right now, we don’t know what can be done,” junior Kelvin Carter told Raleigh’s WRAL-TV. “We’re trying to figure that out.”


abortion clinic, according to court documents. Prosecutors say Moose talked for over an hour with the informant, providing instructions on how to make three different explosive or incendiary devices. Moose also advised the informant on the best way to conduct surveillance on the clinic, prosecutors say, telling him to drink several beers at a local bar and then stagger around the facility, claiming to be searching for a place to urinate. “Moose explained that he would only be arrested for public drunkenness, but it is better than conspiracy or trespassing,” court documents say.

FROM 1a “Whatever you may think about me, you’re probably right,” he wrote, according to the court papers. “Extremist, radical, fundamentalist? Yep!” FBI agents say Moose linked to a website that provided instructions on making explosive material, and offered commentary on the safest way to fashion the material into bombs. During an FBI investigation, a confidential informant met with Moose and told him he wanted to bomb a local

FIBRANT FROM 1a isn’t listed on the utility’s rate card or website. But the city always has planned to offer 50x50 Mbps upload and download for $85 per month, Paris said. “We plan to roll out higher speeds over time,” he said. Fibrant has the capacity to go up to 1 gigabit per second upload and download, Paris said. The utility plans to offer 100x100 Mbps and 200x200 Mbps but has not set prices, he said. Fibrant customers can request the 50x50 Mbps option, Paris said. The city has yet to determine when that option will appear on the advertised rate schedule, he said. Time Warner Cable boosted Internet speed overnight this week for all Turbo and Standard Internet service customers, said Mike Smith, area vice president for Time Warner Cable’s Charlotte operation. Turbo download speed went from 10 Mbps to 15 Mbps, matching Fibrant’s basic Internet speed. Turbo upload speed went from .5 Mbps to 1 Mbps. “We don’t feel that’s much to brag about,” Paris said. All Fibrant Internet speeds are symmetrical, meaning the upload and download speeds are the same. Time Warner’s Standard Internet service went up to 10 Mbps for downloading and 1 Mbps for uploading. To access the new speeds, cus-

FIRED FROM 1a provided by the town. The termination became effective the same night. Pless was hired as town manager in May 2008 after nearly a year as interim manager following the departure of then-manager Eric Davis. Pless was hired under a two-year contract. Initially, Pless worked for the town through a contract with All American Associates, a Mount Airy-based consulting firm. The contract under

dent Robert Wright cited as compelling for new businesses to join. “We offer contacts, networking and a lot of different events throughout the year,” Wright said.

tomers need to reboot their cable modem by leaving it unplugged for about a minute. The faster speeds will come with a higher price for some Time Warner customers. The company has increased rates, effective in December. Customers will receive notification during the next two weeks, said Dan Ballister, director of communications for Time Warner’s Charlotte operation. Customers who have Time Warner standalone Internet will pay more, Ballister said. But more than half of Time Warner’s Charlotte area customers will not see a rate increase because they have bundled services or special promotions, he said. Time Warner also introduced two new services this week, Wideband and Road Runner Extreme. Wideband goes 50 Mbps downstream and 5 Mbps upstream for $99.95 per month. Extreme — which offers 30 Mbps downstream and 5 Mbps upstream — costs $64.95 per month when bundled with another Time Warner service. While Fibrant has a faster upload speed, quick download is more important for many people, Ballister said. “It depends on how the customer uses their Internet service,” he said. Paris said consumer behavior is becoming more “upload intensive,” with more people using Skype, Facebook, Netflix and other applications that perform better with faster upload speeds. “To me, it’s all about upload speed,” Paris said. “When you’re online, you’re constantly switching between pushing

which he was hired allowed Pless up to 18 months to relocate to China Grove. In the two years he worked for the town, he never did. Pless lives in Lexington, according to town staff. When asked if his location had anything to do with his termination, Brooke said, “I will say we would’ve preferred that he lived here.” Since working for the town, Brooke said, Pless was given what Brooke called a “minor” evaluation before, but this was the first “complete” evaluation. The town is looking at getting someone in the meantime, perhaps part time. “We have a good staff that

and pulling information, and you can only go as fast as your upload speed.” City officials weren’t surprised that Time Warner announced faster Internet speeds the day after Fibrant launched, Paris said. “We’ve seen this in every other city that has invested in fiber optics,” he said. “They are trying to match our speeds, but they can’t.” Ballister said Time Warner’s new speeds were not in response to Fibrant but were part of a service upgrade for the entire Charlotte area. Charlotte can thank Fibrant for Time Warner’s faster service, Paris said. Paris said he is not sure how many people have subscribed to Fibrant since Monday. The city has a waiting list of about 260, he said. Requests from the Post for information about Fibrant are now handled by Paris or the city public information officer, rather than city employees who run Fibrant. For several weeks, questions about Fibrant left in phone messages and e-mails for Fibrant Director Mike Crowell, Fibrant Marketing Director Len Clark and Salisbury Management Services Director John Sofley have been answered by Paris or Karen Wilkinson, the city’s director of public information and communications. Although Crowell, Clark and Sofley previously answered the Post’s questions about Fibrant, Paris said the city handles the Post’s Fibrant requests as it does for any other media outlet, by sending the request to the public information officer. “It’s standard practice,” he said. Contact Emily Ford at 704-797-4264.

can keep things going day-today,” Brooke said. He added that Mayor Don Bringle and Mayor Pro Tem Lee Withers have also been helping out. Bringle referred specific questions to Brooke. Withers said he wasn’t worried at all, “those guys know what to do.” “We have great department heads that will get us through this time. We look forward to getting an interim in place and hiring through that practice,” Withers said. Brooke said the town will advertise for a town manager and review applications, but realistically it would probably occur sometime after the first

of the year. When Pless, 40, was first hired, the town council approved a contract that paid Pless $67,000 a year and provided additional benefits that included 10 days of vacation. Pless was to get a 5 percent salary increase after six months. Before that, as interim manager, his salary was $45,000. At the time of termination, his salary was $72,321. Pless was the third person to hold the job since the town switched to a manager form of government. Attempts to reach Pless were unsuccessful. Contact Shavonne Potts at 704-797-4253.

Deadline looms for upset bids on former post office Anyone interested in buying the building that used to house the downtown post office has until 5 p.m. today to enter a bid. The last bid on the countyowned building at 110 W. Innes St. came in at $58,181. To upset that offer, the next bid has to-be at least $61,185.05, according to the upset-bid formula. Bidders must place a deposit equal to 5 percent of their offer. The county will return the deposit on any bid not accepted. Rowan County is selling the building “as is, where is” and it needs about $100,000 in repairs, county officials have said. The U.S. Postal Service abandoned the downtown post office in early September as part of its plan to consolidate services and save money.

Services and post office boxes have been moved to the East Innes Street post office. On Sept. 7, the Rowan County Board of County Commissioners accepted a $50,000 offer for the building from Kurt and Carrie Gibson, starting the upset-bid process. Commissioners must approve the final high offer before the sale is closed, which they would do within 30 days after the final upset bid-period has passed. The buyer must pay cash at closing. Bids should be submitted to the office of the county clerk, Room 202 in the J. Newton Cohen Sr. Rowan County Administration Building, 130 West Innes Street. For more information, contact the county clerk at the County Administration Building or by phone at 704-2168180 during normal business hours.

Woman charged with fraud On Nov. 3, Brandi Marie Lark was arrested by Salisbury Police Officer J.M. Cottingham at 1017 Bringle Ferry Road. Lark was charged with financial-card fraud, a felony, and possession of stolen goods, a misdemeanor. After appearing before Magistrate Joe McGee, she was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under $500 secured bond. Lark’s court date was set for 9 a.m. today. In other Salisbury Police reports: • Guy Patrick Bacelo of 1024 S. Fulton St., reported a

larceny from a vehicle at the same address between the afternoon of Oct. 31 and morning of Nov. 1. Stolen property is valued at $1,869. • Steven David Saunders of 1321 Parkview Circle reported a larceny from a vehicle at the same address the night of Nov. 1. Items taken were a GPS unit and an i-Pod. • Bennie Ray Garvin, 56, was charged at 226 W. 11th St. on Nov. 1 with possession of firearm by a felon. • Harvey Leon Ratcliff, 28, was charged Nov. 2 with possession with intent to manufacture, sell and distribute a controlled substance, a felony.

Deputies find husband under house EDEN (AP) — Breaking up seems hard to do for a Rockingham County man. The sheriff’s department says Allen Turner faces a breaking and entering charge after deputies found him in a crawlspace under his former mother-in-law’s house. Authorities say Turner’s ex-wife was staying at the house and he tried to awaken her Thursday morning by throwing acorns at a glass. A sheriff’s deputy says Jes-

sica Turner then got a text message saying Allen Turner left his car in the driveway because he ran out of gas. She discovered he’d entered the house through a window. Allen Turner then called his ex-wife and said he got a ride and left, but deputies searched and found him under the house. Allen Turner was jailed under $1,500 bond. It wasn’t clear whether he had an attorney.

BEAUTY BLOOMS Flowers transform woman’s porch Y

ADKIN — What’s the story, morning glory? As the days chill, hay goes into the barn and frost looms for the pumpkin, it’s a good time to pay tribute to something that reminds us that much in life in cyclical. I choose the morning glory. I choose Bessie Ludwig’s morning glory. Bessie, who lives off Brown Yadkin Road not MARK far from the former N.C. WINEKA Finishing plant, buried four magic seeds in a plastic pot last spring, used generous amounts of Miracle Gro and watched her morning glory vine climb like Jack’s beanstalk. She had placed the pot at the bottom corner of her front porch. The vines springing from the dirt marched upward to a wrought-iron column, which became a trellis enabling it to weave eventually around the spouting at the edge of the porch roof. The morning glory not only went up, but it went out along the porch ceiling, making for a shady end — a beautiful respite when the morning sun prompts the spiral buds to open into saucer-shaped blossoms. Bessie has blue morning glories, with pleats or crease marks of purple. A glorious sight. “Yesterday, it was prettier than this,” Bessie complained. But I wondered how it could have been. How did such a network of vines grow from such a little pot? “I guess ’cause it was just fertilized good,” she answered. The thing about morning glories is they thrive on light. They open when the sun comes up, but just as quickly as the flowers bloom, they fade and fall to the ground, making room for more. Every morning, Bessie has new flowers waiting for her,


Man collapses, dies during basketball game at gym A 26-year-old Salisbury man who collapsed while playing basketball Wednesday died of natural causes, police say. Willie Andre Bruce was playing at Hall’s Gym, 1400 W. Bank St. about 9 p.m. when “He, for whatever reason, just suddenly collapsed,” said Deputy Police Chief Steve Whitley for the Salisbury Police Department. “He literally was just playing ball with his buddies and DEPUTY CHIEF STEVE just fell out.” WHITLEY When police arSalisbury Police rived, fire and medical personnel were at the gym performing CPR. Lifesaving efforts continued at Rowan Regional Medical Center, but doctors were unable to revive Bruce. Family members told an attending physician that Bruce had been in a wreck in March and had complained of pain in his leg since then, Whitley said. The doctor theorized that Bruce may have developed blood clots in the leg and that one may have broken loose and gotten into his lung, according to the police report. Ticora Jones attended Salisbury High School with Bruce, who was named prom king there in 2002. She said he took courses for the academically gifted and remembered him Thursday as “a very smart young man, a very good guy.”

“He literally was just playing ball with his buddies and just fell out.”

Vehicles clipped corners, causing fatal I-85 wreck


Bessie Ludwig, 92, used Miracle Gro and a lot of patience to grow a trellis of morning glory across the porch of her home. It’s only a matter of time before the coming winter will make the flowers fade, but Ludwig hopes to plant anew in the spring.


A Charlotte man killed when his pickup flipped several times on Interstate 85 Wednesday evening caused the wreck when he tried to pass another vehicle, an N.C. Highway Patrol trooper said. Matthew Edwin Garrett, 31, of 2336 Gemway Drive, Charlotte, was not wearing a seat belt when the crash occurred in the southbound lanes of I-85 near the Cabarrus County line, Trooper Bradley Potts said. Garrett was driving his red Ford behind a Nissan Titan driven by Anthony Thomas Campanaro, 43, of Fort Mill, S.C., about 7:50 p.m., Potts said. Both trucks were in the left-hand lane when Garrett moved to the right lane and tried to pass. “When he was passing the other vehicle, he clipped the right front of the other vehicle with his left rear and lost control,” Potts said. Garrett’s truck then flipped multiple times, coming to rest upside down on a cable barrier in the median. The roof of Garrett’s truck caved in, with the driver’s side sustaining the heaviest damage, Potts said. Garrett suffered head trauma and internal injuries. After the trucks collided, the Nissan pickup ran off the road into the median, then across the highway and hit a bank. It rolled over but came to rest on its tires. Medical responders took Campanero to Carolinas Medical Center-NorthEast, where he was treated and released. The wreck snarled traffic in the southbound lanes of I-85 for more than two hours.

Hundreds of students gather to hear role models BY LAURIE D. WILLIS Livingstone College News Service

CHARLOTTE — A symposium designed to address the needs of black and minority males began Thursday as hundreds of high school and college students watched a powerful film, were afforded the chance to network with positive AfricanAmerican men and heard inspirational words from several former NFL players.

The symposium, “Black/Minority Males Taking Flight through Personal Development, Knowledge Sharing and Commitment to Community,” is part of The Second Annual Commemorative Classic and continues today at The Park in Charlotte. The Commemorative Classic celebrates Livingstone College and Johnson C. Smith University, HBCUs with the distinction of having played the first organized black col-

lege football game on Dec. 27, 1892. The historic contest was played in the snow on Livingstone’s campus, and JCSU won the defensive struggle 5-0. Thursday, though Livingstone College President Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins Sr. and Johnson C. Smith University President Dr. Ronald L. Carter ribbed each other about Saturday’s football game, to be played at 1 p.m. in Memorial Stadium in Charlotte, the upcoming game was

hardly the main focus. Instead, students were surrounded by positive men of color — who in many cases have been where they are — but who found a way to defy the odds rather than reaffirm the stereotypes. Archie Hunt, a junior at RowanCabarrus Community College, said he wanted to attend the symposium to be enlightened and to share what




bury. The organization anticipates increased needs for pet food during the upcoming winter months and is appealing to groups and individuals to hold pet-food drives. Donations may be brought to the spaghetti dinner. All pet-food donations to the HSRC are dispensed to pet owners in need of assistance. Last January and February, nearly 800 pounds of food were dispensed each month. New or used dog houses are also needed. HSRC volunteers will sell concessions at the Rowan County Airport’s 80th anniversary celebration on Nov. 11 at the airport, beginning at 3:30 p.m.

Snow may fall in NC mountains GREER, S.C. (AP) — A winter storm watch has been posted for three counties in northwestern North Carolina. The National Weather Service says a cold front and a storm system will combine to produce snow showers in

BLOOMS FROM 4a like a bouquet from a suitor. These days, 92-year-old Bessie has regular visits from Meals on Wheels and those morning glories wrapped around her porch. She appreciates the company.

the upper elevations of Haywood, Madison and Swain counties. The watch is in effect through late tonight for areas about 3,500 feet. Up to seven inches of snow could fall in some areas.

But the season’s first frost is coming. When it arrives, the morning glories will be gone for good — these annuals don’t come back. Bessie will have to plant new magic seeds if she wants her morning glories to visit next year. Something tells me she will.

Police arrest suspect in break-ins Smokes,

Dew taken

EAST SPENCER — Police have charged a man with breaking into a Royal Street home and say he is a suspect in several other break-ins. But Police Chief Floyd Baldo has not named Larry Victor “Lobo” McCluney a suspect in a string of nearly two dozen break-ins that have happened in the town since mid-October. “We just know we have a group of breaking and enterings going on and we know he’s a suspect in some, but we really can’t elaborate on which ones quite yet,” Baldo said. McCluney, 55, of Broad Street, is charged with one count of felony breaking and entering, one count of misdemeanor breaking and enter-

ing and obstructing or delaying an officer. Responding to a reported break-in on Royal Street around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Officer Cass a n d r a Rankin saw McCluney leaving the area, police said. Rankin called Officer Daniel Smith, who tried to MCCLUNEY Mcstop Cluney, but McCluney ran and broke into an apartment at Weant Street Apartments, police said. The officers took McCluney into custody and he received a $1,000 secured bond. He remained in the Rowan

County jail Thursday evening. Baldo said earlier this week that more than 20 homes in East Spencer have been broken into within the past few weeks around Pine Tree Drive and in the southern part of town. He said the homes targeted are owned by high-profile members of the community. Thursday, Baldo said police suspect there may be two groups operating in the town, and McCluney is suspected of stealing scrap metal. “We’re not sure if he’s involved with the other group as well,” Baldo said. “We can’t rule him out because he was in the vicinity of a breakin just reported and wouldn’t stop for officers.”

Two men sought after woman says she was abducted Concord Police are seeking two suspects in a sexual assault that occurred Oct. 22. Police said a woman was leaving the Family Dollar Store at 876 Concord Parkway North in Concord about 9 p.m. when she drove to the rear of the shopping center. As she approached Central Drive, two men stopped the vehicle at gunpoint. The two men forced the woman into the back of the van and drove her to an unknown

location where she was sexually assaulted, police said. The woman and the van were then abandoned on Pounds Avenue in Concord. The first suspect was described as a black man in his mid-teens to early 20s, 6 feet tall with a slender build, thick braided hair, and with a scar or tattoo on his lower jaw. The second suspect is a black man, midteens to early 20s, 5 feet 8 inches tall, also with a slender build.

“The Best Insulated”


Thieves took an estimated 300 cartons of cigarettes, along with eight bottles of Mountain Dew, during a break-in at a convenience store Tuesday night, police said. Officer M.M. Causey responded to an alarm at the Kountry Market at 12955 Bringle Ferry Road about 11 p.m. He found an open door with the frame splintered. Anwar Ul Haque, the store’s key holder, estimated the value of the cigarettes at $13,000. The 1-liter Mountain Dew bottles were estimated at $10.

Pistol among items stolen A .380-caliber pistol, a Playstation and five Playstation games were reported stolen from a Salisbury home on St. Peter’s Church Road. Renee LaPoint told deputies with the Rowan Cou nty Sheriff’s Office that she realized the items were missing after she arrived home about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. LaPoint did not know how the thief got in her home because the door and all the windows were locked. The video games were taken from her son’s room, but the gun was taken from another room.

Dispelling mystic vapor

Strong vote for Auten affirming heriff Kevin Auten has been serving at the pleasure of the Rowan County Board of Commissioners’ five members since they appointed him to fill former Sheriff George Wilhelm’s vacant position several months ago. After Tuesday’s vote, Auten can feel confident that he now serves at the pleasure of many more people — 16,481 voters, by a preliminary count. Auten’s resounding victory, with 72.71 percent of AUTEN the votes cast in the sheriff’s race, is the validation he has been waiting for. Now he can move forward with confidence to put h— imprint on the department — an imprint of hard work, honest dealing, professionalism and integrity. This was an unusually amicable race. Republican Auten and Democrat John Noble have a long history of working in the Sheriff’s Office, and they did not let their competition for the top job sour their relationship. The story might be different if it were a tight contest; that kind of race can raise emotions. Not that Auten took his election for granted. Noble rose to the top among several viable candidates in the Democratic primary for sheriff, so he proved he was no pushover. Nevertheless. Rowan County’s right-leaning ways and Republican-dominated record — along with the Auten family’s many connections in the community — put the odds heavily in Kevin Auten’s favor. Now that he has the job for the next four years at least, Auten can really get to work. He knows he needs to raise the public’s confidence in his department. Wilhelm’s secretary was charged with embezzling $50,000 from the department, right under the sheriff’s nose. Wilhelm resigned, but not before asking the county for 11 years of vacation and sick pay. The Sheriff’s Office seemed to be out of control and without leadership. Now there can be no doubt that Auten is in charge. He heads a department of more than 200 employees, charged with maintaining law and order in a county of 136,250 people spread over 511 square miles. He has a tight budget, an overcrowded jail and now delayed plans for a jail annex — and the need to prove that this will not be business as Wilhelm-usual. That’s quite a responsibility. Congratulations to the new sheriff — and good luck.


Common sense

(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)

“Those who cannot remember the past will spend a lot of time looking for their cars in mall parking lots.” — Jay Trachman

hen I sat down to write today, my thoughts turned to a published writer I heard on the Internet talking about the process of writing and creating. As a matter of fact, I was listening to Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of the book “Eat, Pray, Love.” She said that once you make it as a published author or an accomplished artist, people tend to come up to you and ask if you’re afraid. Afraid of what? Afraid there’s nothing left to create. Isn’t it interesting that DICY artistic adMCCULLOUGH ventures seem to be the one place people have that perception and think that once you have produced a product, you’re all used up? It’s like, once you’ve written a book, you couldn’t possibly have anything else to say. Or, once you paint a masterpiece, your artistic gifts go right out through your finger tips. For some reason, another perception held of artistic or creative people, no matter the venue, is they have some sort of mystic vapor that lasts only for a short period of time. Also, there’s the perception only a few people have artistic abilities. If



GOP to do heavy lifting now ALEIGH — Because there hasn’t been a GOP legislature in North Carolina since the 1800s, the new Republican majorities have no shortage of initiatives to pursue in the 2011 legislative session. In the past, most bills introduced by Republicans were JOHN either voted down by DemoHOOD cratic majorities or blocked from consideration by Democratic leaders. Now, with Republican running the state House and Senate, bills to, say, remove the cap on charter schools, privatize some state services, reform annexation laws and amend the state constitution to protect property rights will probably get to the floor and pass both chambers. But for all the pent-up demand to exercise legislative power on behalf of conservative causes, most of the heavy lifting during the 2011 session will be devoted to two massive barbells: the budget deficit and redistricting. The fiscal challenge facing North Carolina is daunting. At a minimum, state revenues will fall short of planned state spending by more than $3 billion. Depending on one’s definition — should it include only immediate operations or obligations such as state pensions? — the deficit could be described as $5 billion or more. While past Democratic governors and legislators were responsible for most of the reckless decisions that created the problem, Republicans won’t find much political value in playing the blame game. They wanted power in Raleigh. Now they have it. Having (properly) ruled out tax increases as the solution, Republicans now have the responsibility to help Gov. Beverly Perdue enact a balanced


2011-13 budget. That means proposing or agreeing to billions of dollars in short-term budget savings, as well as structural reforms of the budget process and a longterm plan for reducing North Carolina’s tens of billions of dollars in accumulated debts and unfunded liabilities. Make no mistake: you can’t balance North Carolina’s budget simply by eliminating redundancies, axing obvious pork-barrel projects, eliminating vacant positions, and econ-

Lawmakers will have to make tough decisions about such items as Medicaid .... nonteaching expenses in the public schools ... big state subsidies for private firms and nonprofits, and the use of costly imprisonment for nonviolent crimes omizing on travel budgets. These are praiseworthy first steps, but their total value is denominated in the hundreds of millions of dollars at most, not billions. The new Republican legislature will have to make some tough decisions about such items as Medicaid and other welfare programs, non-teaching expenses in the public schools and universities, big state subsidies for private firms and nonprofits, and the use of costly imprisonment for nonviolent crimes. Most North Carolinians are grown-ups. They’ll understand the need to make tough decisions to bring state expenses in line with state revenues. Most North Carolinians have already had to do that for their own households and businesses.

LETTERS Nominate a star for Service Above Self We need your help in submitting nominations! Rowan County has many outstanding children and youth with great character! They perform untold, and sometimes unrecognized, hours of volunteer service — giving of themselves to help others. We need your help to show and tell others how important their contributions are to our community. Each year Service Above Self seeks nominations of individuals and groups in the divisions of elementary school age, middle school age, and high school age noting their service to others. It is not too late to nominate a student or group of students for this year’s awards. The deadline for nominations is Nov. 15 and this deadline will not be extended. A Service Above Self awards ceremony is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Dec. 9 at Keppel Auditorium on the Catawba College campus. All nominees will be recognized and given certificates of appreciation for their service. In addition, group and individual awards will be given in each of the age groups for community service


While the budget deficit is the biggest problem facing the new legislature, the responsibility to redraw North Carolina’s congressional and legislative districts may consume almost as much political and media attention. The maps will define the political playing field for a decade. And they may well determine the fate of dozens of political careers, including those of many sitting lawmakers. I have long favored amending the North Carolina constitution to reform our redistricting process — both to create a redistricting commission and, more importantly, to apply additional neutral rules to the resulting maps. But we’re out of time. The earliest general-election date for voters to consider such a constitutional amendment would be a year from now, and the 2011 ballot will feature only municipal and school-board races. Major changes to our constitution are best considered in highturnout elections. Besides, even a November 2011 date would be too late to get maps approved by both a commission and the U.S. Justice Department before the start of candidate filing in early 2012. Instead, GOP leaders should advance three pieces of legislation in 2011. First, they should enact new redistricting rules that telegraph their commitment to compactness and other neutral principles for drawing districts. Second, they should enact new maps according to those rules. And third, they should enact legislation authorizing a referendum to write such rules, and a commission system, into the state constitution. If the Republican legislature can lift both the budget and redistricting barbells over their heads next year, the rest of the session ought to be no sweat. • • • Hood is president of the John Locke Foundation and publisher of

Lines too long What is up with the long line in the morning at Erwin Middle School? I have some family that goes there and the line in the mornings is terri-

ble. The children are tardy on some days and even the buses run late. The principal says to drop your kids off early, but what good is that when the door does not open until 7:55? I guess it is all right to have our children stand out in the cold weather and rain? Maybe the school does not care about our children out there in the weather, but we as parents do. Something needs to be done about this. Maybe they could have two lines in the morning like they do in the afternoon, and that would take care of the problem. Let some of the staff stand outside with the students waiting to get in. I’m glad my son is not at this school, but I have to sit in that mess when taking him to school on the same road. Does anyone else care about this? — Kim Morris Salisbury

There’s the perception only a few people have artistic abilities. ... These attributes are just like any others. They have to be developed. truth be told, these attributes are just like any others. They have to be developed. True, there are those who have natural talents or gifts, but even in that realm, it often comes down to trial and error. Beyond that, it’s the dreaded words: practice, practice, practice. Ask a concert pianist how many hours he or she has to practice before allowed to perform in a concert hall. Ask an opera singer how many lessons he or she has to take before allowed to perform in an opera house. Even at that point, there is and always will be more practice. Then you have the visual artists. Consider the many lessons and hours spent in the studio or at home perfecting the craft. How many papers and images wind up in the trash can before the one perfect or nearly perfect art form appears? Find an artist, and talk to him or her about the many struggles of this chosen path. Perhaps these artists can be appreciated more if we understand the commitment and dedication involved. Anything done well involves time, patience, and practice. Come to think of it, ask parents how many times they have to practice before they perfect raising a child. We all know the answer to that one. It’s a work in progress. If you stop to think about parenthood, it too is a creative adventure. Parents learn by trial and error, and sometimes it may seem like there is a mystic vapor. Oh, and one more thing: There is never enough time to practice and get it perfect. The one big unfortunate circumstance, however, is there’s a real live baby on the other end of the practice sessions who has to endure the learning curve. I tend to believe structured lessons and tests should be given for parenthood just like any other skill acquired. I suppose that could be another topic for another day. • • • Dicy McCullough is a freelance writer and poet who lives in Rowan County. She can be reached at 704-2784377.

FORUM FROM 4a he learned with fellow members of Men Inspiring Success through Education and Role models (MISTER), an RCCC male-mentoring program. Kevin Gillespie, 17, a senior at East Rowan High School, knows the importance of having positive male role models. His father isn’t part of his life. “My older brother is a good person to follow because most of the time he does the right thing,â€? said Kevin, an A student who plays on his football squad. “My mom, Georgia Gillespie, is my biggest role model, though. She’s very strong and has maintained our household the way it is and has raised me in a positive way.â€? Kevin said he was grateful to Jenkins and Carter for holding the symposium. “I think it’s a very positive thing because it shows that somebody is really taking the time out to show us they care about us,â€? Kevin said. He and some East Rowan classmates attended the symposium with Andre McCain, a teacher’s aide for exceptional children and an assistant football coach. Jamell Clarke, 22, a junior marketing major at JCSU, said he came to the symposium so he could better understand what it means to be a leader. “I want to be a role model and have a positive influence on kids,â€? said Clarke, of Atlanta. “My dad taught me a lot and is still teaching me a lot, and I want to do the same thing for others.â€? Chelson Perry, 22, a senior business administration major at Livingstone, said he is enjoying the symposium. “I really enjoyed hearing the men share their stories and struggles and how it’s very important to have positive black male role models in your life.â€? The symposium began after Livingstone’s drum line and JCSU’s drum line pumped up the crowd before Jenkins and Carter spoke. “I must tell you that I’m awed by what I see here today,â€? Jenkins said. “I’m awed by what we are about here today.â€? Carter told the students they were planting seeds of hope by attending the symposium. “You are planting the seeds today — seeds of promise, seeds of hope, seeds of opportunity for young men of color today, tomorrow and tomorrow’s tomorrow,â€? Carter said. After both presidents spoke, Dr. Maya Angelou recited her poem “Sons and Daughtersâ€? via videotape before emcee “Bustaâ€? Brown told the crowd to get ready for the film, “Beyond the Bricks.â€? Produced by Washington Koen Media Productions and directed by Derek Koen, the powerful documentary was a symposium highlight. It began with a voice-over by President Barack Obama and transitioned to Shaquiel Ingram, 15, a freshman at Barringer High School’s 9th Grade Success Academy in Newark, N.J. Once Shaquiel spoke, it became obvious he’s bright beyond his years. “It’s not cool to be smart because everybody wants to emulate the rappers ‌ when it should be the other way around,â€? Shaquiel said. “You’ll find when you get older that the smart kids who did all the work and stuff are really going to be your boss.â€? Shaquiel discussed not living with his mother because she already had five other children at home and not having a close relationship with his father. The film depicted Shaquiel doing poorly in school until he was connected with some positive male role models, including Thomas Reddick Jr.

Associated Press

CHARLOTTE — Steve Smith never had a chance to celebrate his 600th career catch. He was too busy feeling dejected and small. It’s been a bizarre and frustrating 2010 for Smith, the Carolina Panthers’ four-time Pro Bowl receiver. From breaking his arm playing flag football to watching his quarterbacks struggle amid mounting losses to being sidelined for a game with a sprained ankle, Smith is short on wins and numbers this year. Sunday’s loss to St. Louis was the low point despite his milestone. Smith’s fourth-quarter fumble in Carolina territory set up the Rams’ clinching score in their 20-10 win. Smith also had two drops, one being particularly embarrassing.

N.C. Shrine Bowl roster includes 3 area players

“When I came across the middle and I was stumbling a little and the ball hit my facemask, man, that was horrible,” Smith said. “I’m 5-9, I SMITH probably felt like I was 3-foot-2. I wanted to crawl into a hole.” It overshadowed his nine catches for 85 yards, the last of which was the 600th of his 10-year career. “I was made aware that was my 600th catch, but it such a crummy game it was bad,” Smith said. “I’ve got nine more games to change that. We’ve got nine more games to change the way, if we win or lose, how people will see the Carolina Panthers.”



Smith feeling small BY MIKE CRANSTON

FRIDAY November 5, 2010


jon c. lakey/SALISBURY POST


A pair of West Rowan players earned special recognition at last year’s Shrine Bowl. Two more Falcons have been picked to participate this year. Defensive back Domonique Noble and offensive lineman Charles Holloway, along with A.L. Brown offensive lineman Sheldon Saddler, are on the North Carolina roster that was released Thursday. The N.C. all-stars will face South Carolina on Dec. 18 at Wofford’s Gibbs Stadium in Spartanburg, S.C. West graduates K.P. Parks (offense) and Chris Smith (defense) collected MVP awards last year after helping lead North Carolina to a 24-14 victory.



“It’s a program-wide honor and program-wide selection because those players are really, really good and deserve everything, but I think our success has a lot to do with it,” West Rowan head coach Scott Young said.



Friday Night

‘Mighty Mites’ amazed Linder fter the 1959 football season was in the books, Rowan County Coach of the Year Lope Linder gave his China Grove team the ultimate compliment. “They played football the way it was supposed to be played,” Linder told MIKE LONDON the Salisbury Post. The Red Devils didn’t win the South Piedmont Conference title. They were a third-place team with an 8-2 record, but for a 21-man squad with light running backs and slightly bigger linemen who played both LINDER ways, they did as much with as little as any team ever has. “Some of us wouldn’t have been second-team or third-team on some of the teams that we beat,” said Don Safrit, who started at guard on offense and nose tackle on defense despite weighing only 160 pounds. “But when you play as a unit, you can accomplish a lot. That year was the epitome of a team effort.” Halfback Robbie Kluttz turned in an amazing sea-

East Rowan defender Jordan Hopper (7) chases North Iredell quarterback Jacob Queen. East visits South Rowan tonight.

East, South resume rivalry Roaming the county getting ready for tonight ... here are some games that really mean something to Rowan County football fans. Three titles are on the line.  If West Rowan beats North Iredell, it’s the outright NPC champ.  If Salisbury wins on the road at East Davidson, it’s the RONNIE outright CCC GALLAGHER champ. • If North Rowan wins on the road at South Davidson, it’s the outright YVC champ. And then there’s the matchup in Landis between East Rowan (1-9) and South Rowan (2-8). Nothing on the line? Both coaches know bet-


ter. They’ll tell you it means just as much as the others. “It’s a game, isn’t it?” South’s Jason Rollins ROLLINS exclaimed. “It always means something.” East coach Chad Tedder agreed, saying, “It means a lot to us. No. 1, it’s a county rival. Depending on what East Rowan person you ask, South Rowan is our biggest rival.” One reason to visit Landis is to see what could be Mark McDaniel’s last game in Raider red. The South senior is one of the county’s most versatile players, but he’s banged up. He left last week’s loss at Statesville midway through the second quarter with a bad ankle and has

Games at 7:30 P.M.

North Iredell at West Rowan East Rowan at South Rowan Salisbury at East Davidson North Rowan at South Davidson North Davidson at Davie County AL Brown at Concord been getting treatment all week. “It’s sore,” Rollins said. Banged up or not, expect McDaniel to play. If he plays, that’s a problem for the Mustangs. “He’s a good athlete,” Tedder said. “We just have to keep him contained. He’s going to get the ball. But we

really don’t look at stopping one person. We make sure our defensive alignment is right and balanced. We do our responsibilities, and one person isn’t going to kill us.” Stay tuned. 

South and East are both in rebuilding years after ninewin seasons. A win tonight could be a giant step toward 2011. “We’re taking it as kind of a building block into next year,” Rollins said. It was a rough first year as a head coach for Tedder, but not a negative one. “Any first head (coaching) position is always tough on you mentally and physically,” he said. “The wins and losses were tough. I expected us to be a little better than our record shows.


son and was picked for the Shrine Bowl. “I weighed 140 pounds, and we went up against a few giants,” Kluttz said. “But we just loved to play football. That’s all it was, really. We loved to play.” The Red Devils earned the nickname “Mighty Mites” because the largest Devils were 174-pound junior tackles Jerry Poole and Clint Eudy, who would start for North Carolina in the early 1960s. “Some teams lifted weights,” halfback Phil Wise said. “We didn’t. All we had was farmboys who bundled hay and cut wheat. But we had a will and a drive.” There were eight seniors — Kluttz, Wise, Safrit, linemen Charles Lentz, Larry Hampton and Donnie Sechler, fullback Robert Rudisell and quarterback Fritz Slough, the ace pitcher for the Kannapolis American Legion team. It was the season China Grove beat A.L. Brown and Concord back-to-back, two of the more satisfying wins in Linder’s long career. Ask a “Mighty Mite” about that game at Kannapolis’ Memorial Stadium against the Wonders and he’ll get emotional. It was one of the most memorable nights of their lives. Safrit recalls there were 27 Red Devils when the season started, but dropouts and injuries eventually pared the squad to 21.


Common Sense delves into picks, postseason pods n the 1956 science-fiction classic “Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” regular humans — well, as regular as any Californians can be — start disappearing. They are being cleverly replaced by impostors, perfect duplicates being grown from giant, plant-like pods that have invaded our planet. In less time than it takes Romar Morris to run 80 yards, these Pod People are well on their way to replacing the entire human race. Common Sense will not reveal the


fate of humanity in case you haven’t seen the original film or the remake, but the movie is worth mentioning today because we will be dealing with pods and pod people again very soon. The NCHSAA has tried its best to tweak a playoff system that had East Rowan venturing nearly as far last fall as the body-snatching pod people traveled to Earth from outer space. You probably recall that East’s reward for winning a first-round

home game was a four-hour, secondround trip to Havelock, which is near Morehead City. That had to be expensive. The new system is expected to save thousands of travel miles, hours and dollars. The playoff process will start once again with determining the 64 playoff qualifiers in each classification. We’ll still have eight classes and eight trophies — 1A, 1AA, 2A, 2AA, 3A, 3AA, 4A and 4AA.

Next, the average daily membership (ADM) figures will determine which 32 schools are large (AA) and which 32 are small (A) in each class. GPS systems will be activated, and each group of 32 will be divided into the 16 easternmost and 16 westernmost schools. The next step will be to seed teams 1 through 16 based on conference standings and overall records.

‘Big Red Machine’ manager dies Associated Press Reds fans were taken aback when Sparky Anderson showed up in Cincinnati for his first day as a big league manager, an unknown taking over baseball’s first professional team. Sparky who? Really? By the time he was done, this man with the shock of white hair and schoolboy nickname would produce a considerable list of achievements that featured three World Series titles — including crowns in each league — and a Hall of Fame entry on his resume. Anderson, who directed the Big Red Machine to back-to-back championships and won another in Detroit, died Thursday from complications of dementia in Thousand Oaks, Calif. He was 76. A day earlier, his family said he’d been placed in hospice care. Anderson was the first manager to win World Series titles in both leagues and the only manager to lead two franchises in career wins. “Sparky was, by far, the best manager I ever played for,” said former Reds star Pete Rose, the game’s career hits leader. “He understood people better than anyone I ever met. His players loved him, he loved his players, and he loved the game of baseball. There isn’t another person in baseball like Sparky Anderson. He gave his whole life to the game.” Anderson’s teams in Cincinnati — featuring Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan and Rose — won crowns in 1975 and 1976 and rank

among the most powerful of all time. Led by Kirk Gibson and Alan Trammell, Anderson won with the Tigers in 1984. “He was a good guy,” former Tigers pitcher Jack Morris said, choking up over the news. “Baseball will have very few people like Sparky. He was a unique individual. He was a character with a great passion and love for the game.” Anderson never tried to overshadow his teams, giving his stars great leeway while trying to stay in the background. At Anderson’s request, there will be no funeral or memorial service. Always affable, ever talkative and known for a self-deprecating demeanor, Anderson was equally popular among players, fans and media. “Revered and treasured by his players for his humility, humanity, eternal optimism and knowledge of the game,” his Hall of Fame plaque reads. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig called Anderson a gentleman and dear friend. “I recall with great fondness the many hours we would spend together when his Tigers came to Milwaukee,” Selig said. “Sparky was a loyal friend, and whenever I would be dealing with difficult situations as commissioner, he would lift my spirits, telling me to keep my head up and that I was doing the right thing.” The Reds put a photo of Anderson on their outfield videoboard at Great American Ball Park on Thursday afternoon, honoring the man who led them to their greatest moments.

“In one way or another, Sparky touched the life of every Reds fan,” owner Bob Castellini said. Anderson’s win total of 2,194 was the third highest when he retired after the 1995 season, trailing only Connie Mack and John McGraw. He’s still sixth on the career list — he won 863 games in nine years with the Reds and 1,331 in 17 seasons with the Tigers. He’ll be remembered as much for the little things that made him beloved as for the big numbers that made him a Hall of Famer. “Being a good baseball player and person went hand-in-hand with him,” said Alan Trammell, the 1984 World Series MVP who is Arizona’s bench coach. “He wanted us to put our dirty clothes in the bin so that the clubhouse guys didn’t have to pick up after us.” In many ways away from the field, he was a teacher. “He had a lot to do with molding me professionally and taught me a lot about perseverance,” Morris said. Anderson knew all about perseverance. George “Sparky” Anderson got his nickname in the minor leagues because of his spirited play. He made it to the majors for only one season, batting .218 for the Phillies in 1959. Anderson learned to control a temper that nearly scuttled his fledgling career as a manager in the minors, and went on to become one of baseball’s best at running a team. And he won with a humility that couldn’t obscure his unique ability to manage people.

Red Sox exercise option on Ortiz NEW YORK (AP) — The Boston Red Sox kept designated hitter David Ortiz by exercising a $12.5 million club option Thursday, and the San Francisco Giants declined a $9.5 million option on World Series MVP Edgar Renteria. Teams had until midnight EDT to exercise options under the new rules agreed to by the commissioner’s office and players’ association in September. Under the fast-track timetable, the 166 free agents such as Cliff Lee, Carl Crawford and Jayson Werth can start negotiating with all teams this Sunday, the sixth day after the World Series. Rather than exercise Miguel

Olivo’s option, Colorado traded the catcher to Toronto for a player to be named or cash. The Blue Jays then declined the catcher’s $2.5 million option, which carried a $500,000 buyout. Ortiz wanted a new multiyear contract, but the Red Sox didn’t want to make a longer commitment to a player who turns 35 in two weeks. While he made his sixth AL All-Star team, he got off to his second straight slow start. Ortiz finished with a .270 average, 32 homers and 102 RBIs. “I talked to him directly and he told me directly that he was cool with it,” Boston general manager Theo Epstein said. “I think, in the end, he realized that we

weren’t in a position to give him what he was looking for in a multiyear arrangement.” Epstein said it was unlikely a multiyear deal still could be worked out with Ortiz. “We never say never,” Epstein said. “Things could always come up that cause you to turn in a new direction, but I think at this point the feeling is that we’ve explored it. It didn’t work out. Both sides, for a lot of reasons, were fine going to the one-year mechanism that was already built into the contract.” Boston exercised its option on reliever Scott Atchison at $40,000 above the minimum, which will be $400,000 plus a cost of living adjustment.


Titans accept Moss

Duke tops Division II champ Associated Press

Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans don’t feel like they took a chance claiming Randy Moss off the waiver wire. They think they got lucky and hit the lottery. The Titans are confident the move will translate into wins — maybe even the missing piece that could deliver owner Bud Adams and coach Jeff Fisher their first Super Bowl. Fisher, the NFL’s longesttenured coach, is known as a player’s coach who holds his guys accountable. The Titans (5-3) are winning with a strong locker room hungry for the franchise’s first postseason victory since January 2004, and they feel Moss now is on the right team at the right time. “This is a great opportunity for him,” Fisher. “It’s a fresh start. We’ve got a great locker room. They’ll accept him. I’m confident he’ll accept his new teammates as well.”  MINNEAPOLIS — A restaurant whose food was sharply criticized by Moss is giving the former Vikings receiver something to chew on. Tinucci’s will offer free lunches today to the first 50 people who come to turn in their Moss jerseys. For everyone else, the lunch buffet will be marked down to $8.40, a takeoff on the receiver's No. 84 jersey, co-owner Gus Tinucci said Thursday. BILLS ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — A day after acquiring Shawne Merriman off of waivers, coach Chan Gailey announced that the player is tentatively scheduled to report to the team today. Gailey also ruled out Merriman from playing Sunday against Chicago. SAINTS METAIRIE, La. — Reggie Bush was limited during Saints practice, raising his prospects for getting back in the lineup for the first time since breaking a bone in his lower right leg in the second game of the season. “It felt pretty good — still a little bit of pain there but nothing that I couldn’t handle. Nothing that wasn’t expected,” he said. “We’ll just keep pushing every day and see what happens at the end of this week.” Coach Sean Payton stopped short of saying he thought Bush would be ready to go by Sunday’s game at Carolina. Meanwhile, starting cornerbacks Tracy Porter and Jabari Greer both practiced fully. Payton sounded confident that the pair would return. STEELERS PITTSBURGH — James Harrison was fined $20,000 for a late hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees, the third time he has been fined this season for a dangerous tackle. The penalties total $100,000, including a $75,000 fine for his Oct. 17 helmet hit that left Mohamed Massaquoi with a concussion. “The amount of money is becoming an issue,” Harrison said Thursday. “The fines that they issued to me, two of them weren’t even called penalties. I don’t even know what to say anymore.” CARDINALS TEMPE, Ariz. — An allergic reaction to a medication injected into his knee has limited running back Beanie Wells in practice this week. EAGLES PHILADELPHIA — Wide receiver DeSean Jackson is wearing a new helmet, made by Schutt, that is designed to prevent concussions. RAIDERS ALAMEDA, Calif. — Coach Tom Cable says Jason Campbell will make his fourth straight start at quarterback this week for Oakland. Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha did not practice because of a sprained right ankle, and his status is in doubt. JAGUARS JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The NFL has fined Jacksonville Jaguars safety Don Carey $12,500 for an illegal hit on Dallas tight end Jason Witten in last Sunday’s game. CHARGERS SAN DIEGO — The Chargers, who might be without Antonio Gates on Sunday due to a foot injury, have signed receiver Kelley Washington.

Kyrie irving makes a no-look pass while being defended by donnelle Booker.

DURHAM — Kyle Singler scored 12 of his 14 points 81 in the second half Duke CP Pomona 60 and No. 1 Duke beat Cal Poly Pomona 81-60 on Thursday in an exhibition matchup of reigning national champions from different divisions. Miles Plumlee added 14 points and freshman Kyrie Irving had 13 for the Blue Devils, who outscored the Broncos 34-10 during the first 111⁄2 minutes of the second half. Nolan Smith scored 12 points, and Mason Plumlee added 11 points with 12 rebounds. The Blue Devils led 39-33 at halftime but turned up the pressure. That burst was marked by consecutive alley-oop dunks by Ryan Kelly and Smith. Irving capped it with a layup, making it 73-43 with 8:42 left.

Thorp backs Davis Associated Press

CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina chancellor Holden Thorp is again publicly supporting coach Butch Davis amid an NCAA investigation into the school’s football program. In comments to UNC system administrators, Thorp said Thursday there is no evidence that Davis was aware of or involved in any of the issues that brought NCAA investigators to campus. “A lot of people have looked for a long time, and no one’s found anything that makes me think Butch shouldn’t be the coach,” Thorp said in a phone interview afterward. Thorp and athletic director Dick Baddour have been publicly supportive of Davis throughout the investigation, which was initially focused on agent-related benefits but expanded to include possible academic violations. That also led to a probe by the North Carolina Secretary of State’s office on whether the state’s sports agent laws were broken. Thorp said 60 student-athletes have been interviewed so far, with the NCAA visiting campus six times and the Secretary of State’s office visiting twice. “We’re all asking ourselves: What could we have done to have caught this sooner?” Thorp said. “That’s critically important in making sure this doesn’t happen again. I know it’s a really hot

question on people’s minds whether we have found anything that showed Coach Davis knew anything about this, and we haven’t.” The Tar Heels (5-3) opened the season against LSU with 13 players sidelined due to the probe. Six players won’t play this season, including three who were either dismissed from the team or ruled permanently ineligible by the NCAA. Five players have returned to game action after missing time, while a sixth (Ryan Houston) was cleared to return but will likely redshirt. Defensive lineman Michael McAdoo is the only player from the LSU group whose status is still in question. He hasn’t played this season. Fullback Devon Ramsay played four games before the school decided to hold him out. He hasn’t played since. Davis, speaking with reporters before Thursday’s practice, said he hoped the investigation wouldn’t tarnish his career. “I’ve put a lot of importance in my coaching career on doing the right things, to emphasize graduation with the athletes, to recruit ethically, to have coaches on our coaching staff who are good people and people who care about kids,” Davis said. “All I can do is every day do the best job that I possibly can. “I love working here. It’s been a great situation and I’m looking forward to many more years in the future.”

Tigers’ Newton linked to recruiting scandal BY DAVID BRANDT Associated Press

A man who said he represented Auburn quarterback and Heisman hopeful Cameron Newton during his recruitment out of junior college last year asked for payment to secure his commitment to Mississippi State, according to former MSU player John Bond. “I will say this, very loud and very clear: Cameron Newton is eligible at Auburn University. Period. End of story,” Auburn coach Gene Chizik said Thursday night on his weekly radio show. Bond said he went straight to MSU with the allegations. “During the 2009 football season, I was contacted by a former football teammate, who represented to me that he was speaking for the Newton camp,” Bond said in a statement given to the AP through his attorney. “He told me that Cam Newton wanted to play at Mississippi State, but that a specified payment would have to be made. “I reported the conversation to the Mississippi State Athletic Department,” Bond said. “I was told by the Athletic Department that Mississippi State would not respond to the overture that was made to me, and that Mississippi State would continue to recruit Cam Newton as it does any other football recruit.”, which first reported the story, cited unidentified people who said Bond’s former teammate Kenny Rogers was the one soliciting payment. The website reported the school refused to get involved with Rogers, who has

separately come under scrutiny from the NFL Players Association and the NCAA. Rogers has a company called Elite Football Preparation, which holds camps in Alabama, Chicago and Mississippi, and matches football prospects with colleges. In a statement, the school said “we are comfortable that representatives of Mississippi State University’s interests conducted themselves appropriately and in compliance with all NCAA by-laws.” MSU compliance director Bracky Brett refused to comment in a text message. Bond’s lawyer, Phil B. Abernethy, said in a statement to the AP that Bond has been interviewed by the NCAA. “The NCAA cannot comment on current, pending or potential investigations,” NCAA spokeswoman Stacey Osburn said in an e-mail. The report said Rogers told Bond that schools “had already offered $200,000” for Newton. But since Newton liked MSU coach Dan Mullen when the two were at Florida together in 2007 and ‘08, MSU could “get him for $180,000.” Mullen was the offensive coordinator at Florida before taking the Mississippi State job after the 2008 season. Newton’s father, Cecil Newton, told the AP that the family denies any allegations and is “cooperating with the investigation.” Southeastern Conference spokesman Charles Bloom declined comment. Bond played quarterback for Mississippi State from 1980 to 1983. Rogers was there from 1982-85.

Hokies take battle of Techs Associated Press

BLACKSBURG, Va. — David Wilson returned a kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown with 2:23 to play, lifting No. 20 Virginia Tech to a 28-21 win over Georgia Tech. Wilson’s return came on the kickoff right after the Yellow Jackets hit a field goal to tie it, allowing the Hokies (7-2, 5-0 ACC) to remain in control of their fate in the ACC’s Coastal Division. It was Virginia Tech’s seventh consecutive victory. Georgia Tech drove late to the Hokies’ 17, but Rashad Carmichael intercepted a pass in the end zone with 8 seconds left.

Brown 9-1, 6-0 SPC; Concord 7-3, 5-1 SPC  Series: Concord leads the “Bell” series 39-36-4; Brown’s won two of three playoff meetings.  Last meeting: Concord stunned the Wonders 13-10 at Memorial Stadium in 2009  Last time the Wonders won vs. the Spiders: With QB Jamill Lott leading the way, Brown destroyed Concord 56-6 in 2008  Last week: Wonders survived 20-13 against NW Cabarrus; Concord ripped Hickory Ridge 35-7  Next week: Playoffs for both  Game notes: Sixth-ranked Brown has experienced a bumpy ride for a 9-1 team, but it’s still in position to finish unbeaten in the SPC. It can drop the Thomasville loss for playoff seeding purposes, so a win tonight would mean a lofty seed in the 3AA Midwest pod. Brown has power back Travis

Riley in action now. That boosts the offense and the team’s confidence level. He had 12 carries last week. Concord is a formidable obstacle despite three losses. The Spiders dropped close ones early to Hunter Huss (3-7) and to 2A Lexington (6-4). Concord’s other loss was to surprising Cox Mill (7-2). That’s the one that has the Spiders chasing the Wonders in the SPC race. Brown handled Cox Mill easily. The final was 35-21, but it was 28-0 at one point. Brown has won six straight since losing to Thomasville. In SPC games, the Wonders have been slightly more productive offensively than Concord, but the Spiders have put up slightly better defensive numbers. Brown’s defensive line is eight-deep. The group includes Shane Harris and Anthony Shaw. The game’s at Concord’s Bailey Stadium, so it’s just about a tossup. Concord will share the SPC title if it wins. — Mike London

 Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: Salisbury 7-3, 4-0 CCC; East Davidson 2-8, 0-4 CCC  Series: Hornets lead 10-7  Last meeting: Salisbury blasted the Golden Eagles 49-7 at Ludwig Stadium in 2009 behind 209 passing yards by John Knox and three TDs by Romar Morris.  Last time the Golden Eagles beat the Hornets: East Davidson picked up a forfeit win in 2008. As far as beating the Hornets on the scoreboard, East Davidson last won 23-7 in 2003, Joe Pinyan’s first year as Salisbury’s head coach.  Last week: Salisbury knocked off Thomasville 10-7 at Ludwig Stadium; East Davidson lost to West Davidson 20-7  Next week: Playoffs for Hornets  Game notes: Salisbury should be able to name the score against an opponent that has scored seven or fewer points six times and allowed 40-plus four times.

 Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: North Iredell 2-8, 1-4 NPC; West Rowan 10-0, 5-0 NPC  Series: West leads 16-3  Last meeting: West won 55-6 in Olin in 2009 as K.P. Parks rushed for 261 yards and scored five TDs.  Last time North Iredell beat the Falcons: North Iredell’s 22-6 victory in 2002 was one of the more suprising upsets to occur in coach Scott Young’s great run at West.  History: A West win tonight would put Young at 130 as a head coach and push him ahead of Bill Ludwig for second place in Rowan County history.  Last week: North Iredell nipped East Rowan to escape the NPC basement, at least temporarily; West had its off week.  Next week: This is it for North Iredell. West heads into the playoffs as a strong contender for its third straight state championship.  Game notes: Give North Iredell


South Rowan


East Davidson was smacked for 56 points by Lexington and 63 by Thomasville, so Knox, Morris and Dominique Dismuke may run wild. The Ken Massey computer ratings rank East Davidson No. 345 out of 402 schools in the state. Salisbury jumped from No. 100 to No. 76 with its big win against Thomasville. The focus for the Hornets tonight will be continuing to play at a high level rather than sliding down to the level of an opponent that has struggled. Salisbury would like to go into the 2AA playoffs on a roll. Kicker David Simons and cornerback B.J. Woods played key roles last week and are also standouts on a CCC champion soccer team. Salisbury has clinched a share of the CCC championship and should secure its second outright title under Pinyan. The first was in 2006. Pinyan piloted the Hornets to co-championships in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2007. — Mike London

North Rowan

at West Rowan


 Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: East Rowan 1-9, 0-5 NPC; South Rowan 2-8, 1-4 NPC  Series: South leads 32-13  Last meeting: South held off East 27-20 in Granite Quarry in 2009. That was a battle for second place in the NPC.  Last time East beat the Raiders: East won a 43-29 tussle in 2007  Last week: East suffered a 20-18 loss to North Iredell; South was mashed 44-0 by Statesville  Next week: Both teams expect to finish the season tonight  Game notes: A lot has changed in a year. When South and East played in 2009, it was billed as the biggest game in series history. Both entered the contest with gaudy 8-2 records. South finished 9-3. East won a playoff game and finished 9-4. This time South and East are scrapping to avoid the bottom. South owns one NPC win, beating North Iredell on Oct. 2. East has zero NPC


a lot of credit for winning on the road last week, when it had plenty of reasons not to care. Having said that, it’s unlikely there will be many positives for North Iredell tonight in its season-ender. West has maintained one of the dominant defenses in county history through the regular season. Linebacker Quentin Sifford is just one of a host of Falcons enjoying a banner year. West has given up just seven TDs, all in the second half and many of them late. In West’s last outing, East Rowan avoided being West’s sixth shutout victim with an 80-yard run in the final seconds. Senior QB B.J. Sherrill leads West’s offense. He has thrown 52 career TD passes and guided 40 straight victories, the nation’s longest current winning streak. West seniors, including 6-foot-6 offensive lineman Xavier Still, will be honored. — Mike London

 Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: North Rowan 5-5, 5-1 YVC; South Davidson 3-7, 3-3 YVC  Series: North leads 1-0  Last meeting: North picked it up in the second half and beat the Wildcats 41-8 at Eagle Stadium in 2009. Cameron Mallett, mostly a DB now, rushed for 115 yards.  Last week: North won a 26-22 thriller against West Montgomery at home on Pierre Givens’ last-minute kickoff return and interception; South Davidson was drilled 53-32 by South Stanly, a team North beat 12-0  Next week: North is in the playoffs and South Davidson still could get there. The Wildcats have three league wins, one by forfeit.  Game notes: While YVC clubs Albemarle, West Montgomery and East Montgomery have had wins changed to forfeits in recent weeks, North Rowan has dodged the drama. It hasn’t given or received any forfeits, although it took over first


place due to forfeits by Albemarle, which beat North 41-14 and hasn’t lost any league games on the field. Still, the bottom line is North is playing for an outright league championship tonight in Denton. That would be a big step for seniors who were 1-10 (the lone win was a Salisbury forfeit) when they were sophomores in 2008. North shared CCC titles in 2003 and 2005. It last won an outright title in 2000 with Alfonzo Miller in the mix. According to Ken Massey’s computer rankings, North jumped up to No. 250 in the state by winning last week when it was a nine-point underdog at home. North now is ranked No. 28 in 1A. North has gotten big years from Amani Bates (10 TDs) and Sam Starks (eight TDs). Senior Javon Hargrave has seven fumble recoveries, and the future looks bright with talented players such as freshman Xavier Robinson. — Mike London

FROM 1B “The community seems very supportive of me. The school’s been very supportive. We’ve just had a lot of bad breaks. We’re excited about the offseason.” He’s also excited about tonight. “We want to send our seniors out the right way,” Tedder said. Rollins feels the same way. And therefore, it’s as big a game to them as any this season. 

West Rowan didn’t play last week, but a seventh straight NPC title should be in the books by about 10 p.m. tonight. North Iredell got only its second win of the season last week against East Rowan. North Rowan coach Tasker Fleming and Salisbury coach Joe Pinyan hope their teams don’t have letdowns.

COMMON FROM 1B Finally, each 16-team region will be subdivided into eight-team pods based strictly on geography. It’ll be West, Midwest, Mideast and East. What this means is, even if West Rowan is No. 1 in its pod, it won’t necessarily be playing a No. 16 in the first round. West would play the lowest-seeded team in that pod, but that team might be a No. 12. Theoretically, there could be three or four conference champs fighting it out in one eight-team pod, while another pod might not include a single champ. That’s one downside of the system because, most years, the majority of the good teams will be bunched in the two central pods — the Mideast and the Midwest. For an example, let’s take Carson, which is a really good team. The Cougars went 9-2 in the regular season, and they could play for a long time with a favorable draw. But with the new pod system, the Cougars are almost a lock to be stuck in the 3A Midwest pod with their neighbors from West Rowan.


John Jarrett celebrates Salisbury’s win against Thomasville. And the life expectancy for about any team that draws the Falcons is two hours. As far as the ADM figures, they’ve been released. There are always anomalies. Spring Lake Overhills has 1,584 students and is 3A. Fifty-seven 3A schools have ADMs higher than Carson’s 1,168, so the Cougars appear destined for the smaller half of 3A. Seventy-one 3As are larger than West Rowan, so West is definitely in the small half. Its ADM is just

wins but can still tie South and North Iredell for fifth place if it wins tonight. It’s hard to say which team will close on a high note. It’s even hard to predict if it’ll be high-scoring or low-scoring. Both teams are allowing points by the bushel. East has surrendered 334, and South has allowed 390. South’s outscored East 193-89, but much of the Raiders’ offense has been supplied by Mark McDaniel, who’s now banged up. East, which is led defensively by linebacker Jordan Hopper, would appear to be the team trending in a more positive direction. The Mustangs had their chances against Statesville and owned a 12-0 lead last week. East QB Jamey Blalock has produced 323 rushing yards the past three weeks and is the player South’s defense has to contain. The Raiders have endured a brutal stretch in which they’ve been outscored 97-0 since taking an early lead at Carson. — Mike London


South Davidson



North Davidson

at Still


1,091, but about 500 of them can play football. East’s ADM is 1,104, and South’s is 963. Those two schools won’t have to worry about playoffs this year. Only seven 3As are bigger than A.L. Brown (ADM of 1,399), so the Wonders will be 3AA. That’s not bad news. Playing for a different trophy than West is a positive. Davie (ADM of 1,758) is a little lower than usual on the 4A chart, so maybe the War Eagles won’t have to play with the 4AA giants this time.

 Time: 7:30 p.m.  Records: North Davidson 8-2, 3-1 CPC; Davie 5-5, 3-1 CPC  Series: It couldn’t be much closer. North Davidson leads 21-20 on the strength of a 31-30 victory in Welcome in 2009. It was Davie’s first loss in the series since 2001  Last meeting: Davie led 30-16 in the fourth quarter but couldn’t hold on against one of its biggest rivals.  Last time Davie beat the Black Knights: Davie won 29-8 in 2008 behind 150 rushing yards by James Mayfield and 149 passing yards by Zach Illing.  Last week: North Davidson nearly stunned Mount Tabor, losing 40-37 in three overtimes; Davie edged Reagan 27-24  Next week: Playoffs for both squads. With its overall record, North Davidson could get a home game if it wins tonight.  Game notes: North Davidson has a far superior record, but Davie



played the far tougher non-conference schedule. Ken Massey’s computer ranks Davie No. 60 in the state and North Davidson No. 62. North Davidson definitely played its best game in its struggle with strong Mount Tabor, which thoroughly demolished Davie and has lost only to top-ranked Matthews Butler. QB Karsten Miller scored three times for the Black Knights to give them a chance against the Spartans. Shawn Williams, a top-notch kicker, boomed a 48-yard field goal. While it was impressive last week, North Davidson has been hard to figure at times. It lost to 2A Lexington and nipped an R.J. Reynolds team (37-32) that Davie demolished. Davie is 3-2 at home. North Davidson is 3-1 on the road. Davie will need a big night from the Carson Herndon-to-Joe Watson passing combination to win, but the War Eagles usually play very well against the Knights. — Mike London

South Davidson scored 32 points last week. Before getting impressed, understand it still lost by 21. East Davidson is on the bottom of the CCC, but as Pinyan points out, there have been some wild games on Lake Road. He has lost there once — in 2003. When the dust clears tonight, we’ll also know if Carson is a second, third or fourth seed in the NPC. The outcome of the West IredellStatesville game will dictate that. 

On the air tonight ...  WSTP 1490-AM will be at West Rowan.  WSAT 1280-AM will follow Pinyan to Lake Road.  WRNA 1140-AM will cover the East-South contest. Go to a game tonight, folks. And be nice. 

Carson running back Shaun Warren breaks free against South Rowan. The Cougars are off tonight.

The range of 4A schools is humongous. Southern Durham is competing in 4A with a meager ADM of 1,282. Myers Park’s ADM is a whopping 2,751. We don’t think of North Rowan as a big school these days, but with an ADM of 660, the Cavaliers will definitely be in the 1AA group. The biggest 2A is Charlotte’s Berry Academy with an ADM of 1,259. Salisbury is well down the list with an ADM of 895, but it may still be 2AA. Thomasville is definitely headed to the small half of 2A with an ADM of 707. The picks were 14-3 last week for a season record of 97-17. The picks were lousy locally, missing East Rowan-North Iredell, North Rowan-West Montgomery and Salisbury-Thomasville. The picks: North Rowan 48, South Davidson 21 South Davidson has allowed 335 points — including 53 last week. East Rowan 14, South Rowan 12 In the immortal words of Jo Dee Messina: Heads Carolina, tails California. Like Jo Dee, Common Sense flipped a quarter. This one should go to the wire.

West Rowan 56, North Iredell 7 Ever see “300?” Watching West games is like watching 11 Spartans smashing regular humans. Salisbury 54, East Davidson 13 That was the score of the Salisbury-East Davidson jayvee game, so let’s stick with it. A.L. Brown 20, Concord 17 Shapes up as a potential classic in the state’s best series. Brown hasn’t played great lately, but maybe it’s been pointing for this one. North Davidson 21, Davie 17 Not an easy pick, but North Davidson taking Mount Tabor to overtime last week was impressive.

CHINA GROVE COACH LOPE LINDER The players reacted exactly as Linder hoped they would. They got a little mad and dug a little deeper. “Linder was quiet, easygoing, just a great man,” Wise said. “Somehow, he made you feel worthy. When he didn’t come to practice, we realized that we’d let him down, and we were going to play as hard as we could from that point on.” It was China Grove’s first trip to the huge, new Kannapolis stadium that had opened in 1958. A.L. Brown wasn’t as good in 1959 as it would be in 1960 when it went undefeated, but the ’59 Wonders tied Albemarle and Landis, the SPC’s top two teams. Brown coach Ed Edmiston also was

dealing with injuries, but the Wonders were deep. “Kannapolis’ players came thundering down that hill like they do at Clemson when they touch the rock,” Safrit said. “It seemed like there were 90 of them.” Kluttz didn’t bother to count. He does remember how far those green and white jerseys stretched. “They were lined up on the sideline from the 50 to the end zone,” he said. “And there’s 21 or 22 of us.” Wise can still see that October game in slow motion. There was a hurricane coming through, and you tend to remember things like that. “My dad worked at Cannon Mills, and everyone was talking about the game,”

biggest strength,” he said. “This team proved to everyone you don’t have to be big to play winning football.” Kluttz was named Rowan County Player of the Year and was joined on the allcounty team by junior ends Cecil Goodnight and Johnny Walker (a great baseball catcher who would play at Georgia), Slough and linemen Eudy, Poole and Sechler. Kluttz had the best chance of the seniors to play in college, but he went in the service. “I wasn’t smart enough for college,” Kluttz joked. “Wise always kidded me that I was the only eighth-grader with a driver’s license.” Linder, who became South Rowan’s first head coach after China Grove and Landis became one high school in 1961, died in 2002. His passing reunited the “Mighty Mites” for his funeral. More recently, they shared stories at their 50th high school reunion. “It’s just a bunch of guys I would do anything for,” Wise said. “And they’d do the same for me.”

The next day was Halloween, so the game was postponed to Monday. That meant the Red Devils would have to play twice in a week. Slough keyed a 13-0 win against Concord, and the defense limited the Spiders to six first downs. Four days later, Wise’s 59-yard breakaway highlighted a 27-0 victory against Monroe. In their final game of 1959, the “Mighty Mites” took on Mooresville, a program on the verge of greatness under coach Joe Popp. A crowd of 2,200 saw the clash at China Grove. Mooresville focused everything it had on stopping Kluttz, but fullback Ronald Seamon came through with 81 yards. It was another team effort and a 12-7 victory. Kluttz credits Linder for that special season. “Coach was the finest,” he said. Soon after that Mooresville game, Linder praised his players in print. “What we thought was our biggest weakness — our size — turned out to be our

“We had to be in shape,” Safrit said. “You might get out for a punt return or a kickoff return, but that would be your only breather.” Linder, whose given name was Robert, was 32 that season and had already lived an interesting life. He was a tremendous baseball and football player, starring as Salisbury Boyden’s fullback in the 1940s before entering the service for two years. When he returned to Boyden to finish high school, he was over the age limit to compete in the conference games, but he made life miserable for opponents in the non-conference contests. Then he was a standout fullback at Catawba for four years before entering the coaching ranks. Linder had been an assistant at Rockwell High for two years when China Grove hired him in 1954. His 1955 team, which featured burly Shrine Bowl lineman Carl Drye, went 8-2. “We were proud to match that team’s record in ’59,” Safrit said. The “Mighty Mites” didn’t rely on trickery. They ran Linder’s basic T-formation on offense, but they scored their share of points. Slough could throw (he was 7-for-7 passing against Concord), but mostly the Red Devils relied on the wheels of Wise and Kluttz. “Wise was really quick, and Kluttz was quicker,” Safrit said. The season began with wins against North Rowan, Mebane and Wadesboro before the Red Devils lost to rival Landis 12-7. “Still a sore spot,” Safrit said. It was no disgrace losing to Landis. Southern Rowan was a football hotbed that season. Led by Marshall Murphy, the Yellow Jackets went 8-1-1, tying A.L. Brown and losing only to SPC champion Albemarle. China Grove rebounded from the Landis loss by wiping out Winecoff, a Cabarrus school that joined with Odell to form Northwest Cabarrus in the 1960s. Kluttz broke a 69-yard scoring run on the first play from scrimmage. Albemarle was next, and the Bulldogs were a handful for everyone in those days. They crushed China Grove 35-6, plowing for 264 rushing yards with their single-wing attack. “Albemarle had a 2 6 0 - pounder named Wayne Spivey,” Safrit said. “I heard that (Bobby) Compton at Kannapolis had knocked one of Spivey’s teeth out, and he was still mad when we played them. We physically couldn’t stop Albemarle. They were in a class by themselves.” That was China Grove’s second SPC loss, and A.L. Brown loomed next on the schedule. Linder, normally the calmest of coaches, resorted to desperate tactics. “He told us that night that we were finished,” Safrit said. Linder stayed away from practice on Monday and Tuesday, letting assistants run things. On Wednesday, there was still no sign of him. On Thursday, Linder returned. “It was all psychological warfare,” Safrit said. “And it worked.”

Wise said. “None of us had ever beaten Kannapolis, but we were not intimidated.” Wise remembers two or three inches of standing water on the field from the downpour, but the teams played on. The Wonders were held to 34 yards and two first downs. Kluttz splashed for a score on a 50-yard run and finished a sustained drive with a soaked plunge from the 1. The “Mighty Mites” prevailed 12-0. “We won against Kannapolis by going 2 and 3 yards at a time,” Wise said. “You couldn’t pass with those conditions, but it was the best game we ever got to play in. You couldn’t get hurt. There was so much water, if you fell, you slid for half a mile.” A few miles away in Mooresville, Landis beat the Blue Devils 4-0 on two bad punt snaps in some awful muck. It was a crazy night. It also was a turning point. The “Mighty Mites” didn’t lose again. China Grove was supposed to play Concord at home the following Friday, but rain washed it out. R127100

Right now that vision is pretty bleak. The Panthers (1-6) are the NFL’s lowest-scoring team, and Smith’s numbers prove it. Mostly because of poor quarterback play by Matt Moore and Jimmy Clausen and inexperienced receivers behind him, Smith has been held to 26 catches for 309 yards. He has two touchdown catches, but none since Week 2. “A couple of years ago I would have been upset and been all mad. I was just like, you know what, you’ve got to keep plugging away,� the 31-year-old Smith said. “A successful person has never told me they’ve learned so many things off their success. They’ve learned more off the mistakes and the shortcomings.� Smith has had plenty of those moments spliced be-

FroM 1B “I think our kids in the past who have made those games have accounted for themselves well, and that’s the reason for getting a couple guys in it this year.� The Falcons have won two consecutive 3A state titles, and their streak of 40 straight victories leads the nation. West will send two players to the Shrine Bowl for the third time — Tristan Dorty and David Melton both appeared in 2006. “It started out — I wasn’t even in high school — with players making the way for us, getting us looked at, giving us opportunities to show what we’ve got,� Noble said. “It’s always a good thing not just for us, but for the future.� More than 20 schools have offered a scholarship to Noble, who committed to Georgia Tech in August. He picked off two passes in the 2009 state title game and enters tonight’s regular-season finale against North Iredell

tween his acrobatic catches and leading the NFL in catches, yards receiving and touchdowns in 2005. He’s twice been suspended for attacking teammates and violated his contract in the offseason when he broke his hand playing in a recreational flag football league. After missing all the preseason, Smith was sidelined again in Week 5 with a sprained left ankle. He returned and volunteered to return punts, something he made the Pro Bowl for as a rookie in 2001. But nothing has seemed to work in Carolina’s miserable season, and Smith benched himself from his punt return job late in the loss to the Rams because he felt he was wearing himself out. Smith was hard on himself after the game, blaming himself for the loss. Turning philosophical this week, which the moody Smith often does, he gained a different perspective on Carolina’s miserable

with 12 career interceptions. “Out of all the players in the state, a select few got picked, so it means a lot to me to know I worked hard and my team obviously got noticed,� Noble said. Holloway, a 6-foot-1 right guard who weighs 260 pounds, has helped West produce another 1,000-yard rusher (Dinkin Miller) in the first year of the post-Parks era. Holloway developed into an all-county lineman last season. A knee injury wrecked much of his sophomore year. “It’s very exciting for me, my community, the coaches, everybody that’s helped me get where I’m at now,� Holloway said. A.L. Brown’s Saddler (6-1, 265 pounds) is also a right guard. He moved inside after starting the season at tackle. Saddler, the Wonders’ strongest player, made more than 100 “domination� blocks as a junior. A.L. Brown had a Shrine Bowl player every year from 1996-2001. Quantres Grant was selected in 2005, and Jamill Lott was a late addition in 2008.

season. “I was like, ‘Man, when it rains it pours,’ � Smith said. “Then I watched Dallas and they’re not doing as well as they were projected. And I saw a few of their turnovers. When you are losing and things aren’t going right, those things happen, it happens. But when you’re winning all those things turn your way. That’s where we are. That doesn’t mean you throw in the towel.� Smith said he has the “opportunity to energize� the team and prove the Panthers haven’t quit, it’s just uncertain how much Smith can do. Facing constant double teams because opponents don’t respect the rest of Carolina’s receivers, Smith has had few chances. When he has gotten free, Moore has often not seen him. “You’ve got to find those opportunities when you don’t have him doubled or bracketed, whatever you want to call it,� Moore said. “We’re assuming most of the time he’ll be

bracketed somehow. You just have to be aware when he’s got single coverage on him.â€? It would be a good idea. Only Reggie Wayne of Indianapolis and Larry Fitzgerald of Arizona have more yards receiving than Smith since 2005. But playing on mostly struggling teams, Smith’s numbers have declined each year since he last made the Pro Bowl in 2008. There was a discussion in the locker room this week about players attending a Charlotte Bobcats basketball game. When a player asked Smith if he was going he shook his head. “When I’m losing,â€? Smith said, “I don’t go out in public.â€? ď Ž

Smaller birds, such as these sparrows and finches, enjoy black oil sunflower seeds.

Fall seems to bring out more bird watchers njoyed by people of all ages, bird watching seems to become more pronounced as the leaves fall and cold weather finally arrives. The key for successful bird watching is providing ample feed and water. A consistent source of water is very important, especially DARRELL with winter BLACKWELDER around the corner. It’s important to have bird bath heaters to keep water flowing during freezing temperatures. These heaters don’t actually heat the water, but keep the temperature just high enough to prevent


freezing. Bird feeders, food and other bird-related products are now stock items for most garden centers and retail outlets, especially during the holiday season. Correct bird food is an indispensable method of attracting our feathered friends. Sunflower, the most common of all bird seed, is available as striped, black oil or sunflower hearts. Larger birds such as cardinals enjoy the striped sunflower seed, while chickadees, finches and other small birds prefer black oil sunflower seed. Sunflower hearts are the favorite of most all birds, especially with birds trying to feed their young. Cracked corn attracts larger birds as doves and blue jays. Larger, more aggressive birds

may be distracted by placing cracked corn away from smaller feeders. Millet is usually sold as filler for seed mixtures. Smaller birds like sparrows, juncos and chickadees like this seed, as well as the larger dove. Thistle is a favorite food of yellow finches, but the cost is fairly high because it is imported from Africa. Many bird watchers choose to combine thistle, black oil sunflower and millet as the ultimate bird food. Suet is a food source containing a mixture of animal fat and a blend of different types of grain and nuts. The fat content is a source of energy, which is especially important for winter survival. Chickadees, nuthatches and woodpeckers enjoy suet cakes.

Suet cakes are a winter food and should be removed in the spring. Warm spring temperatures cause the fats in the suet cakes to become rancid, making birds sick. Stale bread crumbs, crushed popcorn, crackers or other grain snacks may be used as a supplemental bird food. Some have also used dog food as a bird food supplement. The oil content in dog food is attractive to some bird species. Others have used fish food, but cost becomes a factor when using these types of foods.

Migrant program again available in Rowan and Cabarrus After a brief absence, the Migrant Education Program (MEP) has returned to Rowan and Cabarrus counties. The educational program focuses on helping “migrant students and youth meet high academic challenges by overcoming the obstacles created by frequent moves, educational disruption, cultural and language differences, and health-related problems.” ROBINSON The Migrant Education Program currently operates in more than 30 counties throughout the state under the federal direction of the Office of Migrant Education along with the N.C. Department of Public Instruction and N.C. State University. Helping migrant children is back on the agenda in Rowan County. N.C. State University takes on a new approach by basing the program at the Cooperative Extension in Rowan County. Mindy Robinson is the new Education Advocate for Rowan and Cabarrus counties. Rowan and Cabarrus counties have high numbers of migrant residents and are in need of localized services for this population. Robinson will facilitate the program in both Rowan and Cabarrus counties. Robinson has experience working with disadvantaged populations in various fields, including maternity care and mental health. Robinson is “looking forward to the challenge and adventure of helping the migrant population in our state. In agreement with the Migrant Education Program's mission, Robinson hopes to help these young people by providing opportunities for educational and social advancement while at the same time ensuring that once the child moves out of this area, he or she continues to receive the needed support. For more information about the Migrant Eructation program, go to www.dpi. or contact the 24-hour National Migrant Hotline at 1-800-234-8848. Contact Robinson at 704-216-8980 or email for information about this program in Rowan County.


Turn your back yard into a honeybee habitat BY JOE LAMP’L Scripps Howard News Service

Make your guest room stylish Home & Garden Television

Preparing a stylish guest suite is a snap with inspiration from 5-star hotels and these five tips: 1. Create an environment that promotes a great night’s sleep. Make the bed super comfy by adding a thick duvet and lots of fluffy pillows. High thread-count, 100 percent cotton sheets are also a must. 2. Stock the guest room with magazines and books, and put together a snack tray or basket filled with light

snacks and bottled water. 3. Lay out bathrobes and place rolled bath towels at the foot of the bed in case your guests would like to freshen up upon arrival. 4. Hang a small mirror in the guest room to provide a spot for touching up makeup or putting on jewelry. A long dressing mirror is a nice addition. 5. If your overnight guests are family or close friends, it’s always a nice touch to display photos of time spent together in the past. Everyone enjoys a trip down memory lane.

As we become more aware of the vital role pollinators play in a healthy garden, more people are including plant varieties to attract them. A growing number of gardeners even incorporate beehives into their urban landscape. In today’s environmentally sensitive world, it’s not just about the honey. By attracting more hard-working pollinators to our gardens, we help create healthier ecosystems. Bees pollinate many of our food crops, including fruits, berries, nuts and vegetables. One out of every three mouthfuls of food in our diet benefits from honeybee pollination. In California, the almond crop depends 100 percent on honeybees for its pollination and ultimate harvest. In the process, famers uses 1.3 million bee colonies — about half of all the honeybees in the United States. Unfortunately, bee populations have been in decline. Scientists are investigating “colony collapse disorder,� a term describing the mysterious die-off of honeybees that began in October of 2006 across the nation. Researchers are investigating factors including how stress, pesticides and pathogens affect honeybees. Individuals can increase the bee population by becoming backyard beekeepers. It’s not as daunting as it may sound. Professionals will even set up a hive in your yard and help you maintain it. During filming of a beekeeping episode on “Growing a Greener World,� we met Corky Luster, owner of Ballard Bee Co. in Ballard, Wash. He rents hives to homeowners and commercial operations. In a typical

If you’re on carpool duty, take advantage of that “free� time spent waiting in line. Next time you grab your keys to pick up the kids, take along a notebook, pen and maybe even your checkbook and get a few things crossed off your list before you even utter the words, “How was your day?� Ten things you can do in the car pool lane: 1. Shopping list and menu planning. Plot out your week’s menus and then make a list of the ingredients you’ll need to pick up at the store. Heck, you could even swing by the store on the way home. 2. Make doctors appointments. We’re all for avoiding talking while driving, but putting the car in park and getting on the phone to make those pesky appointments is a great way to cross this task off your list. 3. Plan date night. Think of

This is a really fun way to dress up a bench, table, chair or any flat wooden surface. I like to make a weekend of it and go to the flea market or vintage shops to collect wallpaper and paper scraps. Then I bring everything home and cut the scraps into squares or rectangles. Think of it as a paper patchwork quilt. It’s fun to use pinking sheers for a nice decorative edge. Depending on the patterns, you can create patchworks that are bold and colorful or subtle and tonal. For the piano bench, most of the prints have a white or cream ground color, which makes it look more cohesive and soft. This is a great project if you have a piece of unattractive or damaged furniture. The project is quick and easy and replaces the need to get a piece of damaged furniture professionally restored. Gather: Wood bench, table or chair Wallpaper and/or paper scraps (that look good together) Mod Podge brand fabric and gloss 1-inch flat paintbrush Craft knife Ruler

Scissors and/or pinking sheers Acrylic sealer (optional) Create: Gather fun wallpaper samples or paper scraps. Clean the surface on which you’ll apply the patchwork. Measure the surface so you know what area to work within. With pinking sheers or scissors, cut the paper scraps into small rectangles or squares to fit within the surface dimensions. Experiment with arranging the scraps. I like to cut a few, arrange them and then cut a few more to fill the spaces left over. Once you have laid out the paper scraps in a pretty design, adhere them to the bench using the Gloss Mod Podge. Make sure to smooth out all the air bubbles and let it dry for 15 to 20 minutes. Coat the entire bench surface with at least two coats of Gloss Mod Podge. Again, allow it to dry. Once dried, trim any excess paper scraps around the edge with a craft knife. Allow the stool to dry for at least 24 hours before using. I recommend spraying with several coats of acrylic sealer to finish your project and add durability.

Sharon Bowers has an ingenious trick for distracting children from their post-Halloween sugary stashes: Use the candy as construction materials in crafts. “How can a responsible parent let a kid enjoy candy without letting him stuff himself with junk?” asks Bowers in her well-timed book, “Candy Construction” (Storey Publishing, 2010). “The trick is not to EAT it but to make something WITH it.” Bowers’ “Candy Construction” is a little book with big ideas, from a pirate ship whose hull is carved from a block of Rice Krispie treats to castles, a train and wearable jewelry. Her race car incorporates a Snickers bar, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey’s chocolate bars and sour candy strips. Bowers, who lives in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan, is a literary agent and the author of last year’s “Ghoulish Goodies” (Storey Publishing, 2009). While testing recipes for that book, she hit upon ideas for this one, which is geared more toward entertaining kids. Her own two boys are 4 and 7. “The kids really liked the projects (in ‘Ghoulish Goodies’) where they didn’t have to wait for me to bake something first,” Bowers says. “They loved the building.” She noticed that her boys, while in the creative throes of construction, weren’t eating much of the candy. “‘Wow,’ I thought, ‘they’re actually making Martian aliens and not putting marshmallows in their mouths,’” Bowers says. Of course, it helps that Bowers lays some ground rules for her little construction workers. She lists them in her book: No. 1: “Absolutely no eating while building. What construction worker snacks on the job?” No. 2: “One item can be chosen from among the supplies, or one piece of what was built, but it’s to be eaten after cleanup.” No. 3: “Candy construction workers always brush their teeth after work.” Her boys obey the rules, Bowers has found, because creativity trumps sugar. The kids rarely want to devour their finished creations. “I had a castle in my kitchen for a month because I couldn’t bear to throw it away,” Bowers confesses. To stock one’s own candy construction site, Bowers recommends having these building blocks on hand: Oreos, including the minis, pretzel sticks, tubs of store-bought frosting (for “mortar”), and licorice string (it ties stuff together). She recommends vis-

iting dollar stores with some regularity to pick up unusual candy on the cheap. Bowers is committed to her confectionery craft: She keeps a large plastic bin full of store-bought for candy her children’s construction associated press time. She recommends a race track craft from ‘candy construction,’ by sharon Bowers. that other 2. Glue four mini-sandadults use her project ideas to ect.

Since then the name has been updated but the firm is still ready to serve the citizens of Rowan and surrounding counties.




Watch out for scam artists

Creative uses for old shower hooks

As we begin to see some glimmer of recovery from the longest and deepest U.S. recession in more than 70 years, here come the scam artists in full force, posing as sure signs of help and support. The best way to make sure that you don't fall for their get-rich-quick schemes, work-at-home scams, pyramid schemes and numerous other approaches promising employment and wealth but instead separating consumers from their money is to become eduMARY cated. The HUNT more you know the better armed you will be to recognize a scam.

Dear Sara: Every time I buy a new shower curtain, I buy new shower curtain hooks to match. I have frogs, flowers, and angels that matched s o m e decor in the bathroom in the years past. Besides donating SARA them, is NOEL there any fun, creative things I can do with them? — Palooka,

Scam: Pay a fee; get a job. Whether it's offering a workat-home job or it's a job search firm, no legitimate employer asks you for money upfront. This is a foolproof tip-off that something’s not right. And though there are occasionally legitimate ways in which you can work from home as an independent contractor, a 56-1 scam ratio currently exists in work-fromhome ads. Those are pretty bad odds, suggesting that if you wish to work from home, don’t look to any outsiders to make that happen for you. Most of the time, you're going to get burned. Scam: Pay now; get a loan later. Criminals set up fake loan companies that guarantee consumers loans, but with a serious catch: You have to pay a fee before a loan is approved. Fees can run you several thousand dollars. You pay the fee but never get the loan. And you lose the fee, as well. According to the Federal Trade Commission, it’s against the law to charge an

upfront fee for a loan. And the FTC says that no legitimate lender would guarantee that a consumer will get a loan. Don’t fall for it. Scam: “Stop Foreclosure Now!” You saw an ad or received a personalized letter from a firm that says it found you by looking through foreclosure notices. The firm states that it guarantees it will stop your foreclosure. Once you’re on the hook, the company poses as if it is arranging negotiations on your behalf. Then it announces that it can work a deal with your lender to stop all foreclosure proceedings, for a fee. A really big fee. That's when it may instruct you to stop making payments to your mortgage company, which spells certain doom. It also may tell you to stop contacting your lender and to make your mortgage payments to it instead. Oh, please.

Dear Polooka: It depends on how large the actual hook part is. You can hang them on your closet rod to organize purses, scarves, jewelry, an umbrella, ties, belts, hats, aprons, hair ties or anything in a bag that you want to keep in one place, such as craft supplies or gift items. Hang one from your regular cur-

tain rod and add a small hanging plant, or on a towel rod to hold and display a hand towel or a nylon bath poof. You could put hooks around rolled washcloths and display them in a basket. Flower pot decorations? Some might be large enough to use as napkin rings, too. Or hang them from your Christmas garland or tree. Dear Sara: I need ideas for meals for kids at church. I have been put in charge of the kitchen for cooking meals on Sunday nights. I will be feeding roughly 100 to 150 people. And for a lot of these kids, this will more than likely be the only meal that they will have eaten that day. Church budget is $200 for the month. Here is what I have come up with so far. spaghetti, salad and bread chicken nuggets sloppy joes and tater tots tacos mini corn dogs grilled cheese sandwiches and soup shepherd’s pie pancakes and sausage


tater tot casserole I still have two weeks to try and come up with ideas and then get everything planned. Thanks in advance. And the ages will be from 5 through adult. — Rissi, Tennessee

Dear Rissi: That’s quite a tight budget to feed that many people. Your list will make you over budget unless you’re savvy with coupons and sales (one example: when turkeys go on super sale) or have a good network with local businesses or farmers. Soups, pasta dishes, fried rice, chili, stew, peanut butter sandwiches and fresh fruit (in season and cut in half per person) or breakfast foods such as oatmeal, waffles or pancakes will be cheapest for a large crowd. Shop at a bakery outlet or any place that offers day old bread, too. Consider asking for help from others attending (money or a dish to pass) or you’ll be absorbing the difference. Stress the importance of offering a healthy meal for these

kids to get more people to buy into your goal. Maybe some of them hunt, fish or have home gardens, which can help keep the cost down. You can contact farmers, grocery stores, upick farms or your neighbors and ask whether you can glean their excess. Maybe you have driven by a home that seldom picks their fruit or nut trees or have a neighbor who has wild berries. Just ask. Fallen fruit and unharvested vegetables rot and can be a chore to clean up, so they might be more than happy to give it away. If needed, you can offer to volunteer some time to help them in exchange for food. You can place an ad in your local newspaper, on or on, too. Or find out meat prices at a local butcher for a half or whole cow or pig. You might be able to split an order with someone else.

Lobbyists spin while assistant spins out Dear Amy: I work in an administrative job for some lobbyists. Each Monday we have a meeting and the director in charge goes around the table and asks each person what he or she did over the weekend. He does not ask generally if anyone wants to share; he asks each person indiASK vidually. AMY I have some family problems I’ve been dealing with, and I’m also trying to pay off some debt, so I’d rather not report in front of the group what I do each weekend. Also, the lobbyists make a lot more money than I do and their lives sound more exciting than mine. Without a doubt, they have better weekends than I have. Even if I weren’t dealing with these other problems, I would be uncomfortable having to answer this question, and viewing some of the body language around the conference table, I think others are uncomfortable, too. I’ve been tempted to ask why the whole group needs to know what I do each weekend or to say, “Sorry, but I’m a private person,” or something like

that. Could you offer your wisdom? — Anonymous Dear Anonymous: You could assume two things: (1) Your boss doesn’t really want to know exactly what you did over the weekend, and (2) your lobbyist colleagues are dissembling. How do I know this? Because (1) I work in an office, and (2) because lobbyists spin. That’s what they do. I agree with you that it’s probably best not to share details of your personal challenges at the staff meeting. You could handle this by being vague enough to fake your way out of it. If, like me, you spent the weekend eating microwave popcorn and watching a marathon of “Animals Behaving Badly,” while worrying about your debt load and dysfunctional family, you say, “This weekend? I kicked back. You?” Dear Amy: Eight months ago, I met the man of my dreams. We had planned a future together but now it is all over. I blame myself. I begged him to take me back, but he wants nothing to do with me. The five months we dated, we saw each other every day and spent almost every night together. His adult children

were rude to me, but he told me they would always come first. The big problem was always how he handled our arguments. Every time we argued, the next day he would break up with me, pack my belongings and drop them off at my place. I was always the one begging to get back together. After every fight he would join a dating Website the next day. Is it normal when you have a fight for one person to beg to come back while the other wants nothing to do with you? It has been two months since our last breakup and I am severely depressed and don’t know how to handle it. I live in a small town and cannot ask for help. — Depressed Dear Depressed: It is impossible to see what about this man qualifies him as being the “man of your dreams.” Nothing about his behavior is normal or acceptable. You plunged into this relationship too deeply and too quickly. This guy is a jerk who mistreated you. I assume that your low selfesteem and lack of confidence led you into this unhealthy relationship; you need to develop better dreams and the confidence to pursue them.

You should work on developing friendships with women. Other women could educate you about what to expect from relationships; their friendship will prop you up. No town is too small to ask for (and receive) help. You should discuss your depression with your doctor, who could refer you to a therapist. Dear Amy: A husband told you he can’t communicate with his wife, who pursues Internet relationships. Perhaps he should try emailing his wife. Sometimes it is easier to write about feelings than to talk about them. It is how my teenage children communicate most openly with me. — Online Dad Dear Dad: I agree with you that e-mailing can be an effective way to communicate important thoughts, but this marriage had bigger problems than could be solved via e-mail.

Cortisone-injection frequency up for debate Dear Dr. Gott: Could you tell me how often someone can have cortisone injections? My mother had some in her shoulders. They worked great, but now the pain and stiffness are back with a vengeance. Dear Reader: Cortisone can be injected into joints such as the ankle, knee, shoulder and other areas to relieve pain and inflammation. They have been known to help osteoarthritis, gout, carpaltunnel synDR. PETER drome, bursitis, plantar GOTT fasciitis and a host of other conditions. About 30 years ago, corticosteroids were given with great regularity. Today, however, a different approach is taken. Some physicians restrict a person to three injections a year, others to three in a lifetime. This has resulted from research indicating that repeated injections can cause damage to tissues over time when given in excess quantities to one area of the body. One consideration is whether or not the injections work. If one or two are unsuccessful for reducing pain, it's rather unlikely that additional ones will respond any differently. Side effects include a cortisone flare, in which the injected material crystallizes, causing pain for up to

two days that could be greater than what was experienced prior to the injection. Tendons can be weakened, there can be pain at the injection site, and the color of the skin at the site can change. The most common systemic reaction is observed in diabetic patients, who should monitor their readings, because cortisone can cause a rise in bloodsugar levels. Long-term risks of high doses with frequent administration can include weight gain, facial puffiness, cataracts, osteoporosis, hypertension and rare but serious damage to the large joint bones, known as avascular necrosis. So, in answer to your question, your mother should return to her orthopedic surgeon or the physician who gave her the injections. If that specialist (who is familiar with her medical history) feels strongly that no more should be administered, then I suggest you heed the warning. If, however, your mother is aging, her quality of life is affected, and she cannot find relief from pain through other means, perhaps she will receive a favorable response. The pros and cons can be answered only by the person behind the needle. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report "Osteoporosis." Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order payable to Newsletter and mailed to

Newsletter, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092-0167. Be sure to mention the title. Dear Dr. Gott:I am on your no-flour, no-sugar diet and using your cookbook. One recipe calls for dates. The dates I purchased have dextrose in them. Is this ingredient a sugar that is taboo on your diet? Dear Reader: Dextrose, sucrose and glucose are all simple sugars. The primary difference between all three is in the way the body metabolizes them. Some manufacturers and packers for food-industry products prefer to use the word dextrose instead of sugar because the public is becoming more savvy and might not purchase a product if weight is an issue for them. Dates that are dried are usually packed in sugar as a flavor enhancer. Organic or natural-food stores may have alternatives without sugar added, but as it stands, the dates you purchased aren't allowed. Check the packaging label to verify the packaging content. Dr. Peter H. Gott is a retired physician and the author of several books, including "Live Longer, Live Better," "Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet" and "Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook," which are available at most bookstores or online.

Several fortunate occurrences could be in store for you in the year ahead, but the best ones are likely to come from enterprises you conceive and work hard on to get off the ground. The harder you toil, the luckier you’ll get. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You couldn’t find a better day to disengage yourself from an unproductive involvement. Once you cut loose, you’ll free yourself up and be able to work on a more profitable endeavor. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Something you’ve been viewing only from an intellectual level can be advanced even further by following a powerful hunch that you can’t ignore. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — This can be a fortuitous day for launching a new endeavor on which you’ve been working. If you believe you’ve dotted all the “I’s” and crossed all the “T’s” go head and put those wheels into motion. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — A couple of goals concerning a work-related project on which you’ve labored dearly will finally be achieved. Don’t let Lady Luck catch you napping. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Some extremely helpful knowledge can be acquired through everyday life experiences, which is likely to be the case for you at present. It is apt to be some special information that you can use right away. Pisces (March 21-April 19) — Although you can be quite successful going it alone, you could also realize your goals by working with someone who is a specialist in the field of endeavor in which you’re embarking. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — You may think you’re going to be doing your own thing, but a situation might arise that finds you working instead in close unity with an ally. The collaboration will be quite effective. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — This might be one of your better days to begin that diet or exercise program you’ve been contemplating starting, but putting off. If you start now, it’s destined to be successful. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Right now can be one of new beginnings, which means, among other things, it can be one that restarts a faltering love life. Wily Cupid himself may intervene and get you to begin making up for lost time. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Initiate those constructive changes that you’ve wanted to make in your basic lifestyle, instead of waiting for outside influences to force you into doing so. Get a head start and you’ll be ahead of the game. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Your chances for success can be substantially enhanced regarding something new that you’ve been itching to try. The more concise and exacting your plans are, the greater your probabilities for success. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Begin to hoe lots of rows and plant more seeds involving your financial affairs. If you give your efforts plenty of time to mature, they will develop into a harvest you’ll be proud of. United FeatUre Syndicate

Which suit should you play first? BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

Arthur C. Clarke's first law is: "When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong." When a good player goes down in a contract and states that it was possible to make it, he is almost certainly right. When he states it was impossible, he is probably right, but could be wrong. South was in four spades. West led the heart ace and continued with the king. Declarer ruffed and drew two rounds of trumps, getting the bad news. Then he cashed the club ace and played a second club to dummy's

queen. East, though, won with his king and led another heart. South was doomed. After ruffing, if he drew trumps before playing a third club, East would cash a couple of

hearts. And if declarer immediately played another club, East would win and tap declarer again with a heart, leaving West with one more trump than South. Declarer said four spades was unmakable. Was he right? South might have rebid two spades, but he did have four-card club support. In the end, though, North-South arrived at the right spot. Declarer was wrong. He could have drawn four rounds of trumps, which would have squeezed East. However, even better, South should have played two rounds of clubs immediately. East would have won and led a heart, but declarer would have ruffed and played a third club. If East persevered with another heart, South would have ruffed it with dummy's spade king, drawn trumps, and claimed.

The terms of the sale are that the real property hereinbefore described will be sold for cash to the highest bidder. A deposit of five percent (5%) of the amount of the bid or Seven Hundred Fifty Dollars ($750.00), whichever is greater, is required and must be tendered in the form of certified funds at the time of the sale. In the event that the Owner and Holder or its intended assignee is exempt from paying the same, the successful bidder shall be required to pay revenue stamps on the Trustee's Deed, and any Land Transfer Tax. The real property hereinabove described is being offered for sale "AS IS, WHERE IS" and will be sold subject to all superior liens, unpaid taxes, and special assessments.

If the Trustee is unable to convey title to this property for any reason, the sole remedy of the purchaser is the return of the deposit. Reasons of such inability to convey include, but are not limited to, the filing of a bankruptcy petition prior to the sale and reinstatement of the loan without the knowledge of the Trustee. If the validity of the sale is challenged by any party, the Trustee, in its sole discretion, if it believes the challenge to have merit, may declare the sale to be void and return the deposit. The purchaser will have no further remedy.
