Salisbury Mall in foreclosure ‘Suspicious

device’ found in car Federal authorities called in to examine possible explosives BY SHELLEY SMITH

andy mooney/SALISBURY POST

One of the entrances into Salisbury Mall reflects a lack of shoppers Tuesday night. The lenders have filed for foreclosure.

Retail owner owes over $19 million on loan BY EMILY FORD

Lenders foreclosed on the Salisbury Mall Tuesday after the owners apparently defaulted on their loan. Samco Properties of Deerfield, Fla., had not made a loan payment since July 2009, according to Rowan County Clerk of Court Jeff Barger, who signed the foreclosure papers. Sam Spiegel and Simone Spiegel are founders of Samco Properties, a commercial real estate company that bought the mall in 2003. Samco owes $19,930,000 on the mall loan, Shoppers stroll pass one of several vacant stores in the mall. Barger said. This is the largest foreclosure he’s seen in 12 years as clerk, Barger said.

a comment. The mall manager did not return a telephone call from the Post. Belk and JCPenney stores anchor the mall. Tim Lyons, a JCPenney spokesman based at corporate headquarters in Plano, Texas, said JCPenney stores have been located in foreclosed malls in the past. “Going into foreclosure does not mean closure,” Lyons said. In the other cases, the malls remained open and the stores continued business as usual, he said. “Typically, it has no effect on the operation of the store. We will continue to be there to serve our customers,” he said. The tax value of the Salisbury Mall is $14,584,123, according to the Rowan County assessor’s office. The $5.4 million difference between the amounts of the tax value and loan did not surprise Rowan County Tax Administrator Robert G. Rowland. Rowland said the loan the Speigels took out when they bought the mall in 2003 incorporated personal property,

Rowan County Airport to celebrate 80th birthday BY KARISSA MINN

As the Rowan County Airport prepares to celebrate its 80th birthday Thursday, county leaders are both recognizing its past and envisioning how it could benefit the county in the years ahead. “Aviation has only been around for 107 years, so the fact that this airport is 80 years old speaks volumes,” said Airport Director Thad Howell. “We’re very proud of our airport and very excited about the future.” If weather permits, vintage aircraft and cars will HOWELL be on display starting at 3 p.m., and Larry Macon of the Rowan County Airport will perform aerobatics in his red Pitts Special. The main program — a commemoration of both the airport’s birthday and Veterans Day — will run from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and include an acknowledgement of all veterans in attendance.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives will analyze what local authorities called a suspicious device found in a car off Airport Road on Tuesday. The agency’s lab will study the device to determine its components and ultimate purpose, police said. Salisbury Police Deputy Chief Steve Whitley said a person driving a vehicle on Airport Road around 1:30 p.m. noticed the device and pulled over on a gravel road near the Rowan County Airport and called 911. Whitley wouldn’t identify the driver or the type of vehicle involved. As a precaution, Whitley said, authorities stopped flights around the airport and set up roadblocks on Airport Road. Though the car pulled over near the airport and the National Guard Armory, Whitley stressed the incident was not connected to either. “There was no terrorist threat, anything like that,” Whitley said. “The only reason for our concern for the airport was simply the proximity of the vehicle.” The N.C. Highway Patrol provided a helicopter, which circled overhead to ensure hunters and ATV riders did not venture near the vehicle containing the suspicious device. “In the event that it had been something real, we don’t want anyone to get hurt,” Whitley said.

A Salisbury man faces a first-degree burglary charge after authorities say they found him hiding under a woman’s bed during his bizarre visit to her Clay Street home early Tuesday. Joshua Deon Howard, 24, who a police report says lives on the streets of Salisbury, remained in the Rowan County jail under $50,000 bond Tuesday night. Doris Boyd told police she was asleep on her living room couch at her 629 S. Clay St. when her two dogs woke her with their barking. Boyd told police she walked to her sunroom, saw nothing, and walked back to her living room. She saw Howard with a sweatshirt over his face, crawling on the floor toward her purse. HOWARD Boyd told police she asked Howard what he was doing in her home, and he sat down on the couch and began talking to her. She convinced him to leave, and he walked out the front door. A few minutes later, Boyd told police, she heard the dogs start barking again, this time toward the back of the house. Boyd discovered Howard in her bathroom, police said, and called 911. When officers arrived, they found several chairs stacked outside the bathroom window. Inside, they found vomit on the bathroom floor and on a chair. And they found Howard’s pants, but not Howard. Officers located Howard hiding under a bed, wearing only a pair of underwear, a white T-shirt and a pair of white socks. Police said Howard had been drinking alcohol and admitted he had been using drugs. Boyd told police $10 was missing from her purse.

such as store fixtures. The loan also included money for significant renovations at the mall, including a restaurant and leasehold improvements, Rowland said. “All of those things contribute to the value of a loan, but not so much to the value of the real estate itself.” The loan was made “when times were still very good,” Rowland said. An entrepreneur like Spiegel probably landed a “top-dollar loan,” said Rowland, who said he was surprised by the foreclosure. “If Sam has fallen on bad times ...” Rowland said. “He is, in my opinion, someone who could make about anything work. He’s good in that industry.” Samco specializes in buying and improving shopping centers, office buildings and single-tenant commercial properties, according to the company’s website. Through its affiliated companies, Samco owns and operates about 3 million square feet of commercial real estate, the website said. In North Carolina, Samco also owns Marketplace Mall in Winston-Salem, Westgate Plaza in Durham and Forest Ridge Shopping Center in Asheville, the website said. The Salisbury Mall has struggled to maintain occupants. Hibbett Sports, Chickfil-A, Goody’s and Hallmark have left, among others. Although the mall’s location has been criticized in the past as inconvenient and too far from Interstate 85,

Treme said the foreclosure is not as simple as that. “I think it’s mostly the economy, and I don’t think the location is a big factor, if at all,” he said. Any fallout from the foreclosure on local economic development can’t be determined yet, he said. “Certainly, it’s too early to tell the impact,” Treme said. Hopefully someone will buy the mall and continue to offer residents a variety of local retail choices, he said. “I’m a firm believer in shopping locally and supporting local businesses and keeping our tax dollars here,” Kluttz said. The mall was Barger’s second multi-million dollar foreclosure Tuesday. He also signed papers for a $2.2 million foreclosure on a commercial property at 120 Wilkinson Road in western Rowan County. The property is owned by People Against Drugs Affordable Public Housing Agency. In 2008, Texas Attorney Greg Abbott General charged People Against Drugs Affordable Public Housing, its founder and three of its directors with violating the Texas Nonprofit Corporation Act. According to court documents filed by the state, the defendants illegally used charitable resources to fund the founder’s salary, support a NASCAR Truck Series team, and advance the founder’s political career. The agency went into bankruptcy to stop the lawsuit. Contact Emily Ford at 704797-4264.





3A Service honors those who ‘sacrificed it all’ WEDNESDAY November 10, 2010



Whether they served in Bosnia, Afghanistan, the Gulf or in the United States, Rowan County will honor the nation’s veterans on Thursday with a day of activities that include a morning ceremony and parade. “Some people got drafted, some volunteered, but they all went,� said Homer Robertson, president of the Rowan County Veterans Council.

Library repairs nearly complete

Robertson, a native of Granite Quarry, served in the Army during the Vietnam War. “The veterans fought all these wars. They sacrificed it all,� Robertson said. Veteran’s Day activities begin with a ceremony at the Hefner VA Medical Center in the Social Room of Building No. 6 at 10 a.m. All the events are open to the public. During the ceremony, three awards will be given to the Veteran

of the Year, the Service Officer of the Year and the Chaplain of the Year. The guest speaker for the ceremony is James Oxford, commander of the North Carolina American Legion from Lenoir. The new director of the VA Medical Center, Paul Russo, and National Cemetery Director, John Spruyt, will also be honored. Following the ceremony, there will be a barbecue lunch at noon at

VFW Post 3006, 1200 Brenner Ave., Salisbury, across from the VA grounds. Anyone can attend. At 1 p.m., the VA Parade will begin on the grounds and will go through downtown at 2:30 p.m. The parades will be canceled if the weather is bad. Robertson said the Veterans Council is also pressing to have the Yadkin River Bridge name changed to the Veterans Memorial Bridge and the council is pushing for Liber-

ty Square, a transitional housing community for homeless veterans in Salisbury. There are more than 600 homeless veterans in Rowan County, according to Robertson. The events are sponsored by the Rowan County Veterans Council, which is comprised of multiple veterans organizations in Rowan County. Contact Shavonne Potts at 704797-4253.

A new car! Family wins big prize from United Way


SPENCER — the Spencer Library will be ready to reopen in a couple of weeks, a town official said Tuesday. “I’ll have every box of books on the shelves, all the trim work will be done, the cabinets will be back where they were, all the furniture will be set and all the floors will be clean,� Public Works Director Jeff Bumgarner said during the Spencer Board of Aldermen meeting. The Spencer Library, which was shut down in the spring of 2009 after lead paint was discovered flaking from interior walls, will hold an open house from 2 to 6 p.m. Nov. 22 and reopen permanently Nov. 27. Bumgarner addressed concerns expressed by Alderman Delaine Fowler, who was concerned the library may not be complete in time for the open house before Thanksgiving. “If we're going to open those doors we need to make sure the library is ready to be seen since we’ve worked so hard to get it to where it is,� Fowler said. “I’m afraid it will look poorly on the town if people come to view our library and it’s not put together.� Bumgarner said it will take several weeks of working with the librarian, who has yet to be hired, before all of the books are in order, but they will be shelved. “I will make sure that all the floors are clean and all the hard repairs will be taken care of,� he said.

Cancer affects two students, unites school BY DAVID FREEZE For the Salisbury Post

hris Ledbetter collapsed on Jan. 29. He had been feeling nauseated and run down. His parents knew that something was dreadfully wrong. It was a chaotic evening, with a trip to Rowan Regional Medical Center. He was referred to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston Salem, but all roads were closed north because of the major snowstorm that evening. The ambulance had to go south. Chris was taken to Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, he underwent

tests. A few days later, Chris was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a cancer in white blood cells. His treatment has been intense with chemotherapy and lumbar punctures. Chris is a sophomore at East Rowan High School, but he isn’t able to attend school presently. With the help of his teachers, he hopes to return later. ••• Devan Cowan came home with a headache from a football practice in August. When he had another

SPENCER — It’s been four years since North Rowan High School beat Surry Central during the first round of the state playoffs. Cavaliers fans are hoping the home field advantage will work its magic again Friday when West Montgomery travels to Cavalier territory. North Rowan hasn’t played host to a playoff game since 2006 and Spencer residents are gearing up to support the boys in green and gold. The North Rowan booster club will host a pep rally from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Park Plaza. “We really want to get the community involved,� booster club member Dawn Holshouser said. The pep rally will feature the football team, cheerleaders, marching band and a bonfire. Holshouser said the booster club wanted to take a different approach to get the team and fans fired up. “We were trying to figure out something to do that would be special for the football team that normally wouldn’t be done on football game days,� she said. A graduate of North, Holshouser remembers having bonfires on the softball field to get students in the spirit before big games. “We knew we couldn’t have a fire on campus now, so we thought it would be a good opportunity to include the entire community,� she said. The fire will be monitored and controlled by the Spencer Fire Department. Henry and Karen Alexander are lending Park Plaza for the event. “They came to us and wanted to hold a pep rally and I thought it was a good way to reach out to the community and be good community servants,� Henry Alexander said. Our Place Cafe’s Sherry Lilly and Rebecca Short said they’ve been cheering on the Cavaliers the entire season with stickers on the door of the restaurant. Lilly said her son is currently a senior at North so she’s “quite excited� about Friday’s game. The Cavaliers will be going into state playoffs as the league champion for the first time in nearly a decade after clenching the Yadkin Valley Conference title last week.

Town rallies around team


BENEFIT FROM 3a headache the next day, his dad took him to the doctor. The doctor thought that Devan was dehydrated, but later discovered that Devan’s blood counts were out of kilter. Devan was admitted to Levine Children’s Hospital on Aug 30. He is a junior at East Rowan High, but he can’t attend classes either. He spends most of his time at Levine, and can only return home for short periods. Devan will have a bone marrow transplant in hopes of generating new, healthy cells. Devan’s leukemia is classified as cute myeloid leukemia (AML) which is a cancer that causes rapid growth of abnormal white blood cells that congregate in the bone marrow. ••• Both boys’ lives were changed drastically earlier this year. Other students and staff at East High have planned a benefit for Saturday. Leading the way and organizing the event are Megan Mueller and Arika Garner, school counselors. SADD, Students Against Destructive Decisions, are providing volunteers and organizational help. So are the Boosters Club and the Junior Civitans. Staff members and other students will also volunteer. The benefit starts at 8 a.m. with registration for a 5K run and walk. There will be a 1-mile fun walk on the school track. Registration for both events will also take place at the track. The entry fee for the 5K is $20 and includes a T-shirt and a Hooves for Hope wristband. General entry fee is $5 and includes the fun walk and other activities. Overall awards in the 5K will be presented to the top10 male and female participants. Other activities will include face painting, door prizes, a raffle, a threelegged race, a health awareness booth, a bounce house, and lots of food and drinks. The benefit will go on until noon. ••• Chris is now at home, having been released from the hospital a little over a week ago. He continues on high doses of chemo and steroids. His prognosis calls for a three-year plan to put the leukemia in remission. Currently, there are no plans for a bone marrow transplant. He and his family have learned not to take for granted small things, and greatly enjoy just having Chris at home. Chris has little stamina or strength, but he hopes to see improvements soon. He works at his studies when he is able, but sickness often precludes his work. Devan remains at Levine most of the time. He is preparing for the bone marrow transplant, which his mom, Elizabeth, said was preferred over radiation. His brother, Stephen, is going to be the donor. Devan does feel better and his strength is up and he eats anything that he wants. Devan is also studying at home, and looks forward to being able to return to football next year if all goes well. F&M is the primary sponsor for the benefit event, and other sponsors include Rockwell NAPA Auto Parts, Krispy Kreme, Sonic, Kids of Joy Inflatables, Food Lion, The Refuge and Grace UMC Youth Group. Door prizes are still welcome, but donations so far have come from these sponsors as well as from Zaxby’s, IHOP, A Slice of Heaven, Johnny’s and Fry Daddy’s. Both boys plan to attend at least briefly on Saturday if their blood counts are up. Their lives are often put on hold by low blood counts, but Devan and Chris have learned to cherish their moments with friends and family. They plan to make every effort to be at East High on Saturday. More information can be obtained at 704-279-5232, ext. 120, or at

Williams gave the investigators video surveillance of his property showing Hagans walking around the side of his house to the spot where someone entered. Detectives met with Hagans next door, but a search of his home yielded no evidence linking him to the break-in. Despite a lack of physical evidence, a Rowan County magistrate found the video to be enough evidence, and authorities charged Hagans. He was jailed under a $1,500 bond but was not listed at the Rowan County jail Tuesday night.

AIRPORT FROM 1A Foundation for the Future Robert Van Geons, director of RowanWorks, said Tuesday that the economic development agency may be working more with the airport now than it ever has before. “We’ve set the foundation and put in place a VAN GEONS number of things that can yield us exponentially greater returns on the airport in the coming years,� Van Geons said. “I think the best days and the biggest days are right in front of us.� He said the airport already generates “significant tax revenue� and will continue to be important for job growth in the future. It both generates those jobs directly and helps market the county for business development, he said. Van Geons said the services the airport offers, including low-cost fuel sales and recently privatized maintenance services, encourage companies to locate their air-

craft in Rowan County. The presence of Food Lion and Shoe Show also will send a good message. “That is a very positive thing for our relationship with businesses that utilize airport,� Van Geons said. “It reinforces why Rowan County is a good place to do business.� Howell said about seven businesses currently base operations at the airport, including Food Lion and Shoe Show. The National Guard has operated there for more than 30 years, he said. In addition, the N.C. Highway Patrol operates two helicopters out of the airport. They help with search and rescue, look for drugs and photograph accidents on the highway for the reconstruction team. “It’s not just business and general aviation,� he said. “We actually have law enforcement and military here. Airports of this size typically don’t have a good balance like we do.� Slow But Steady Growth The airport first opened on a limited basis in 1930 with a dirt runway. As it was developed, it was used as a training facility for pilots in World War II. (A flight school still operates there today.)

In 1957, the city deeded to the county about 158 acres at the present site of the airport. A $200,000 bond combined with matching federal funds was used to enlarge the facilities and construct a 4,200foot runway. The runway has since been extended to 5,500 feet, and future plans for expansion will lengthen it to 6,500 feet. Former U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole earmarked $1.9 million for that extension in 2008. The county has received $1.2 million so far, but the N.C. Division of Aviation designated the money for land acquisition because the airport isn’t ready to extend the runway. Instead, county commissioners agreed in October to pursue the purchase of a building owned by PermaFlex to secure land for the runway. If there is grant money left over, it may turn its sights to the Baja Products facility nearby. The county also purchased a FORD Silver Eagle facility for land acquisition in 2007. Carl Ford, chairman of the Rowan County Board of Com-

missioners, said Tuesday the runway extension would be important for future growth. “Not that we’re not pursuing folks now,� Ford said, “but when we get the extension, that’s when we can really go after more clients — the ‘bigger fish,’ so to speak.� He said a longer runway would allow larger airplanes to take off with a full tank of fuel, so they can travel across the country without stopping. Right now, they can only partially fill. He gave credit to RowanWorks, for its recent marketing of the airport that’s helped attract and retain businesses. He also said a re-

cent reduction in the airport tax rate, after a temporary jump when Salisbury annexed the area in 2006, should help bring more. Ford said the airport may soon be serving NASCAR teams and companies who move into the N.C. Research Campus. “We’re up against a lot of other folks like Statesville and Concord,� Ford said. “But we’re hearing Concord may be landlocked, and they have no room to grow. We’ve got a lot of land out there to build hangars and other corporate structures.� The airport now has about 80 regular hangars and four

corporate-sized facilities. Because of all this potential for growth and the impact it could have on the county, Ford called the Rowan County Airport “the wave of the future.� According to 2006 figures from the Division of Aviation, the Rowan County Airport had about 12,700 visitors a year and an annual economic impact of $22.9 million. At that time, there were 99 planes based at the airport with a property tax value of $35.3 million, generating about $223,900 in revenue. Contact Karissa Minn at 704-797-4222.

Whitley said authorities took “odd looking items� from the vehicle and sent them to the ATF laboratory. “We’re not saying it’s explosive,� Whitley said. “We don’t know what it is; that’s why we brought someone in.� Typically when the police department discovers such a device, Whitley said, “we’re going on the premise that it is potentially something dangerous and hazardous.� Around 7 p.m., smoke rose from the gravel road as the bomb team disposed of what Whitley called “residual chemicals they had removed.� He would not be more specific. Whitley said he considered Tuesday’s discovery to be an “isolated anomaly.� “Obviously we’re going to figure out how it got there and all the other things that go along with it,� he said. He added that investigators will treat it as “suspect� until lab results come back. During the investigation, police routinely checked on an Airport Road resident who lives near the gravel road

Cheapskate: Make money management a game

• Creative gas card. I budget $40 per week for gas, and each week, I add that amount to my cash card. I use the cash card when I get gas. I'm never short when filling the tank, and if the balance on the card gets high enough, I plan to use it for a Christmas present at the end of the year. — Barbara, Florida

• Second life for rugs. Once the rubber backing is gone on a rug, I toss it into the trunk of my car. During emergencies, such as having a flat tire, I rather would sit on a rug than on the ground. Old rugs are great for other uses, too. You can put one under messy stuff you’re hauling, use one as a kneeling pad in the gar-

den and use one to line a pet crate. — Denise, Maryland

• Fruit fly “dip.â€? I use a homemade mixture to get rid of pesky fruit flies and gnats. In a small dish, I mix together 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, 2 teaspoons of sugar and 2 to 3 tablespoons of water. Then I add a drop or two of dish soap. I place the dish anywhere the pests congregate. No pesticides or sticky tape to deal with. — Stephanie, Missouri

• Shout out scalded milk. My white enamel pan was left with scalded milk at the bottom. I tried everything to clean it, but it wasn’t until I used liquid Shout that it got clean. I let the Shout sit for an hour in the pan, and the stuck-on milk came right off. — Jo, Minnesota

• Lotion extender. I buy an inexpensive lotion and add a few squirts of my expensive perfumed lotion. This makes it last longer and also tones down the scent a little bit, so it's not so strong. This way I can enjoy my perfume smell all year at a fraction of the cost. — Karen, Oklahoma

• Colored sock pins. Every-

one in my family wears white athletic socks. Before throwing them in the wash, each person is responsible for pinning them together with diaper pins of his/her assigned color. After washing and drying, I can just separate the colors of pins into each person’s pile, and I don’t have to find mates or figure out which socks belong to whom. — Diana,

Walter Wall, bobby Honeycutt, Darryel Scism and tim Proper enjoy a lunch at Mambo Grill and tapas on Fulton Street.

Mambo Grill and Tapas finds an instant home in Fulton Heights Mambo Grill and Tapas didn’t move. It was reincarnated. The name may be the same, and so are some of the faces. But Ariella Sanchez, who owns the new restaurant with her sister Maday Sanchez, wants to make sure everyone knows this is not the same Mambo Grill that operated for more than two years in the Innes Street Market shopping center. The previous incarnation was owned by their father and his business partner, and Ariella and Maday were servers. It had a loyal following, but the sisters have made the new restaurant their own, and want guests to expect a new and unique Cuban dining experience with no preconceived notions. “We didn’t just want to be bigger. We wanted to be better,” says Ariella. And according to diners, they have succeeded. They have a lot of fans, who describe the place as “awesome,” “consistently good” and a “great addition to the neighborhood.” Earlier this year, when it was announced that a section of the old Foil Grocery building on South Fulton would be the site of the new Mambo Grill, the news was greeted with enthusiasm in the neighborhood. The anticipated May date of arrival passed, then the summer. Neighbors, hungry with the promise of tapas, eyed the property longingly. The delays were the result of the many inspections and approvals required when renovating a historic building. Great care went into preserving the integrity of the structure. They even preserved a 1940s cork refrigerator from the grocery store days by building a new refrigerator around it. And the old floor can be seen through a coating of new, clear epoxy.

ariella Sanchez proudly shows off a popular dish, Enchilado De Camaron. This respect for the old neighborhood grocery translates into Ariella’s current efforts to help “bring the neighborhood back.” When they finally opened in the fall, they set aside the first two weeks just for the neighborhood, inviting them with flyers and thanking them for support. Of course a secret that good couldn’t be kept for long, and people were coming from all over before the restaurant had officially

advertised their opening. Brian Romans worked for Mambo part time at the other location and is now head waiter for the new restaurant. “The food is the same, but the atmosphere is what it should have been all along,” he says. “Warm, bright, friendly, inviting ... the new space is everything that embodies the Sanchez family. It has always been and contin-

What is (are?) tapas? BY SARAH HALL

The addition of “and Tapas” to the Mambo Grill name caused excitement among tapas connoisseurs, but some of the restaurant’s patrons have been unfamiliar with the term. The first time I remember hearing about tapas was when a friend of mine was planning a light dinner party and she said, “I am going to be serving tapas.” I thought she said she was serving “topless.” I now know that a tapa is an appetizer served with drinks, and you seldom have just one, so it’s almost always plural, “tapas.” And tapas are not just a form of food. Tapas is a style of eating, practically an event. Many chefs and eating establishments have their signature tapas: tiny masterpieces, culinary meant to be savored and not just popped in the mouth. The term “tapa” is derived from the Spanish verb tapar, “to cover.” The Joy of Cooking says the first tapas were slices of bread or meat that sherry drinkers in Andalusian taverns put over glasses between sips. This kept fruit flies from hovering over the sweet sherry. The meat used to cover the glass was usually a salty ham or chorizo, which would make people thirstier, leading to more drinking, which made tavern keepers happy. So they began making a variety of snacks to serve with sherry, thus increasing their alcohol sales. The tapas soon became as important as the drink. Legends give two different kings credit for the custom. One legend says King Alfonso X of Castile, while recovering from an illness, drank wine with small dishes between meals and thus invented appetizers, decreeing that taverns would not be permitted to serve wine to customers unless it was accompanied by a small snack. Another story says that King Alfonso XII stopped by an inn in Cádiz for a cup of sherry. The waiter covered it with a slice of ham to protect the wine from the beach sand since it was a windy day. The king drank the wine and ate the tapa, then ordered another sherry “with the cover.” A more boring explanation for the name is that since one would be standing while eating a tapa in most Spanish bars, people would

The Perils of Pie L

ast week, I did a food page feature about pies. That entailed writing about pies, presenting recipes, shopping for ingredients, making pie crust, assembling pies, baking pies, trying to make pies look pretty, photographing them, processing the photos, and then putting everything together on a page that hopefully looked attractive enough for a reader to linger over for at least a few minutes. So if you were thinking that the newspaper business is highly specialized, well, for a lot of us, it’s not. I feel kind of like the little red hen, who planted the wheat, harvested it, ground it and then baked the bread. While I would still much rather have Jon Lakey taking pictures for my stories KATIE (as would readers, I suspect) I SCARVEY must admit that it can be kind of fun to be responsible — and have control of — an entire project, from concept to layout. But the problem is that with one’s attention spread in so many different directions, something usually suffers when you’re on a deadline. And for me, it’s the recipe details. In the sweet potato pie recipe, I listed “2 Tbs. lemon” in the ingredients when of course I meant lemon JUICE. Hopefully most people figured that one out. The raisin pie proved more problematic for readers. I waxed on so nostalgically about my family’s favorite raisin pie that at least a few people decided to try it...until they realized that while raisins were in the ingredient list, I never actually mentioned what to DO with them. I got a phone call, an e-mail, and a face-toface request for clarification on that one. And who knows how many people just said a few colorful words under their breath and threw away the recipe they’d clipped out of the paper? To make matters worse, when I replied to one person who e-mailed looking for clarification, I actually advised her to “put the pies in the bottom crust” instead of raisins. To this incomprehensible direction she simply replied, “OK, thanks.” Now that’s civility. Or else she had just given up on trying to get something lucid from me. I know from personal experience that when you proofread a recipe, it’s best to think like a cook, not someone concerned that mayonnaise is spelled correctly. For anyone who wanted to make Leota’s Raisin Pie but didn’t because of confusion, I’m going to reprint the recipe here, this time explaining what to do with the raisins. That seems reasonable. (I will also add that if you want to increase the raisins, up to 11⁄2 cups, you can, but you may have some of the sauce left over if you do.)

Grandma Leota's Raisin Pie (take two) 1 C. raisins 21⁄ 4 C. water 1 egg, beaten 1 C. sugar 1 tsp. salt 41⁄ 2 Tbs. flour 3-4 Tbs. lemon juice

Make a double pie crust; roll out half and press into the bottom of a pie pan. Then, add the raisins, pressing down slightly. Mix sugar, salt and flour. Then stir in the egg and water. Boil mixture until thick, stirring often, in a double boiler. Remove and add lemon juice. Let the mixture cool for a bit and then pour into the pie crust, over the top of the raisins. Add top crust. Brush crust with cream and sprinkle with sugar (optional). Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes; reduce to 425 degrees for about 30 minutes more. You will probably want to tent some foil around the crust so that it doesn’t get too brown.

ues to be an absolute pleasure to work for and alongside such generous and hard-working people.” Romans emphasized that the staff is striving to provide a family atmosphere where people feel welcome and appreciated, customers and employees alike, and there’ s a lot of laughter. Although he recommends trying everything, Romans’ current favorites are the Vacla Frita (a shredded flank steak, infused with lime and spices and crisped on the grill), the Masitas (like “carnitas” in Mexican cuisine but made at Mambo with pork and topped with a citrus garlic sauce), and the Chorizo in Vino from the tapas menu, which features a flavorful combination of red Portuguese style sausage and Argentinian Malbec). Customers eat these and other Cuban and Spanish dishes surrounded by tasteful decor and art. Of special note are two large photographs on the wall of the dining area. One, which dates from 1967, shows a Sanchez family aunt and cousin and a Harley Davidson motorcycle on a street in Cuba. The other is a 1956 photo of El Caballero, “The Gentleman of Paris” a street philosopher who famously roamed Havana during the 1950s. He was not really from Paris, though. He was born in the same small Spanish town that the Sanchezes’ grandfather came from. Ariella talks about how Cuban culture, especially the food, is a fusion mostly between Spain and Africa, with a lot of other cultures thrown in for good measure. “Cubans take something from all cultures and make it their own,” she says. Ariella says her greatgrandmother on her mother’s side was from Africa, and her father’s family is both Spanish and French. Ariella’s family moved from Cuba to Spain for three years, then to Miami, where Ariella grew up. They have been in Salisbury for 13 years. Why Salisbury? According to Ariella, her sister came to visit some friends and thought it was a nice place. “A place you have time to be with your family,” she adds. “And now we want our guests to feel like family.” As Ariella stands at the hostess station a group of Spanish-speaking men enter the restaurant. One kisses Ariella on the cheek. She admits it isn’t usual protocol in America for customers to kiss the hostess when entering an eating establishment. But she points out that greeting others with a kiss is as common in Cuba as a handshake is in the US. Romans adds, “It’s like someone told me, ‘Cubans have very big arms, Brian, they pull everyone in.’ ” When you plan your visit to Mambo Grill, expect to take your time and enjoy the experience. “We’re on ‘Cuban time’,” Ariella points out. Romans adds, “The pace is different here. I’m usually a rusher, but I’m starting to calm down and enjoy selling food to people.” “Brian’s Mojitos are the best in town, or dare I say, best in the state, so don’t rush Brian,” Ariella says, laughing.

need to place their plates on top of their drinks in order to eat, making it a top. The most unappetizing story is that around the 16th century, tavern owners found out that the strong taste and smell of mature cheese could help disguise bad wine, “covering” it, and started giving out free cheese with cheap wine. In Spain, dinner is usually served between 9 and 11 p.m., so there’s a long time between work and dinner. Spaniards often go “Ir de tapas” (which you and I would call “bar-hopping”) to fill the gap, eating tapas along the way. And since lunch is usually served in Spain between 1 and 3 p.m., another common time for tapas is weekend days around noon. This all sounds like a lot of fun, and very tasty. So I say, “Hats off to tapas!”

Who will buy Salisbury Mall? Now comes the hard part alisbury Mall’s placement on the auction block next month comes as neither a surprise nor an aberration. The mall has had less-than-robust business for years. And shopping malls as a whole have struggled as consumers cut back and the credit picture worsened. The only suspense to this story is, what happens next? Who will buy Salisbury Mall? The answer to that question is pivotal to the future of the piece of real estate where the mall sits and the local tax base. The Wall Street Journal reported last month that malls across the country are beginning to see improvement in vacancy rates — the first glimmer of good news for the industry in several years. Some experts say consumers grew tired of malls before the recession. Now, pinched by job loss and tight credit, shoppers have developed more precise shopping habits. Instead of shopping for entertainment, people shop for necessities, and they are more likely to visit discounters like Walmart and Target than a mall. Hundreds of malls have closed since the economy convulsed in 2008. A search for shopping-mall news on the Web finds headlines such as “The vanishing shopping mall” and “Recession turns malls into ghost towns.” This New York Times headline puts it into historical perspective: “Mall kills Main Street, recession kills mall.” Is the mall dead in America? Not yet, but Salisbury Mall’s retail pulse appears to be weak. And no wonder. According to 2008 figures, Rowan County’s median household income of $43,096 is below the state average of $46,574, and Salisbury’s is even lower at $32,923. People here can’t afford to do a lot of shopping. The county’s revenue from sales taxes has been going down — $18.5 million in 2008-09 to $14.5 million in 2009-10. Potential buyers might eye Salisbury Mall for purposes other than retail. Developers have been able to give new life to underused shopping malls and big-box stores by converting them into municipal complexes, town centers, mixed-use complexes, office buildings, churches, gymnasiums and even schools. In the best-case scenario, though, a buyer will come along who can keep Salisbury Mall as a mall and develop it into an even better retail center. That would be best for the local retail base and sales tax revenue. The mall might never be the one-stop shopping destination once envisioned; retailers like Walmart and Kohl’s pull shoppers in other directions. But with JCPenney and Belk as anchors, the mall may be able to draw new tenants as the economy improves. Timing is everything — timing and credit.

“Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.” — Jerry Seinfeld

Moderately confused

few days ago, Anthony Graves called his mother and asked what she was cooking for dinner. She asked why he wanted to know. He said, “Because I’m coming home.” Maybe it sounds like an unremarkable exchange. But Anthony Graves had spent 18 years behind bars, 12 of them on death row, for LEONARD the 1992 murPITTS der of an entire family, including four young children, in the Texas town of Somerville. It wasn’t until that day, Oct. 27, that the district attorney’s office finally accepted what he’d been saying for almost two decades: he is innocent. Graves’ release came after his story appeared in Texas Monthly magazine. The article by Pamela Colloff detailed how he was convicted even though no physical evidence tied him to the crime, even though he had no motive to kill six strangers, even though three witnesses testified he was home at the time. The case against Graves rested entirely upon jailhouse denizens who claimed they’d heard him confess and upon one Robert Carter, who admitted committing the crime, but initially blamed Graves. Carter, executed in 2000, recanted that claim repeatedly, most notably to District Attorney Charles Sebesta the day before Sebesta put him on the stand to testify against Graves. Defense attorneys say Sebesta never shared that exculpatory tidbit with them, even though he was required to do so. Colloff’s story drew outraged media attention, including from yours truly. But the attention that mattered was that of the current DA, Bill Parham, who undertook his own investigation. He was unequivocal in explaining his decision to drop the charges. “There’s not a single thing that says Anthony Graves was involved in this case,” he said. “There is nothing.” One hopes people who love the death penalty are taking note. So often, their arguments in favor of that barbarous frontier relic seem to take place in some alternate universe where cops never fabricate evidence and judges never make mistakes, where lawyers are never inept and witnesses never commit perjury. So often, they behave as if in this one critical endeavor, unlike in every other endeavor they undertake, human beings somehow get it right every time. I would not have convicted Anthony Graves of a traffic violation on the sort of evidence Sebesta offered. Yet somehow, a jury in Texas convicted him of murder and sent him off to die. When you pin them on it, people who love the death penalty often retreat into sophistic nonsense. Don’t end the death penalty, someone once told me, just enact safeguards to ensure the innocent are never sentenced to die. Yeah, right. Show me the safeguard that guarantees perfection. Those who propose to tinker with the death penalty until it is foolproof remind me of the addict attempting to negotiate with his addiction, desperately proffering minor concessions that will allow him to continue indulging in this thing that is killing him. But there comes a day when you simply have to kick the habit. As a nation, we are stubbornly addicted to the death penalty, strung out on exacting retribution and calling it justice. Even though we know innocent men and women have surely died as a result. Or, like Anthony Graves, been robbed of irreplaceable years. He was 26 when he was arrested. He is 45 now. When he made that call home to his mother, he borrowed his lawyer’s cell phone. The lawyer had to show him how to use it. • • • Leonard Pitts is a columnist for the Miami Herald. E-mail:

Vows to fix Washington are familiar refrain he cynic in me says that Democrats will learn nothing from the midterm election. They not only took a bath, they were effectively water-boarded by voters. Democrats lost the House by a margin not seen since 1948. They lost 10 governorships while retaining two -New York and California. Both states are insolvent and can be expectCAL ed to ask for THOMAS bailouts from the federal government, something a Republican House is unlikely to grant. Republicans will get to re-district most states in ways favorable to them for at least the next decade. Nancy Pelosi will step down as speaker, though Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid managed to survive a nose-holding election in Nevada. While Democrats have complained about lack of cooperation from Republicans in enacting President Obama's agenda, don't look for them to show the way by cooperating with Republicans. The GOP has swept solidly into the House on a wave of voter anger at the elitism and condescension shown by so many Democrats and their big media allies who think the public is stupid because a majority do not agree with the notion of government as savior. Democrats aren't in a cooperating mood, as they usually aren't when they lose. And make no mistake they've lost big. By every measuring stick


-- governorships, legislatures, independents, women -- Democrats have lost. Republicans would be crazy to water down what clearly is a mandate to stop the Obama-ReidPelosi liberal agenda. I expect congressional Democrats, in collusion with the White House, to attempt to maneuver Republicans into another government shutdown. It worked before and since Democrats have not had a new idea in years -- or even a good, old idea -- all they know is class warfare, entitlement and grievance.

Outgoing speaker Nancy Pelosi pledged to drain the swamp that is Washington. Instead, she built a hot tub. At his post-election news conference, President Obama said many of the things he thought people wanted to hear — common ground, consensus, working together — but he steadfastly and perhaps understandably would not cede any territory on his administration’s core policies, especially national health insurance. Newly-empowered Republicans aren’t likely to compromise, since that usually means they are the only ones doing the compromising, which in the past has led to disgust by Republican voters who don’t want watered-down conservatism, but spending reductions and smaller government. Don't look for President Obama or the Democrats who

LETTERS Take a stand against bullying Bullying is nothing new to any of us. We all either know one or knew one. Bullying cannot help; it can only hinder social connection, including making someone possibly kill themselves, as a child did earlier this year in a story reported on national news. It does not matter what color, what sex, what economic class we come from, we each must love each other equally, like Christ loves us. If we take away those principles that have been taken out of our schools by a minority of the population that feels this way, then what will our kids grow up to be? Yes, kids, you can still pray in school; no one can stop you. God has been taken out of our society by all of us, not just the antiChristians. Bullying itself is a cry for help from children whose parents don’t care. They feel the need for attention in a world so cold that murders are more prevalent than good deeds. What if we turned away from our evil and turned to good


survived the carnage to admit their policies were wrong, or that they misjudged the public. After so many in the leadership denigrated voters as being insufficiently enthusiastic about all government was attempting to do for them and questioning the smarts and the sanity of those ingrates who don’t agree with their policies, I wouldn’t expect such people to have a change of heart or mind. That is especially so since the mainstream media can be relied on to question every Republican effort to reverse the policies and spending initiatives of the last two years. For Republicans the challenge is to maintain their “purity” in an environment that is the political equivalent of a brothel. Both Senators-elect Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican, and Joe Manchin, West Virginia Democrat, said in their victory statements that Washington is broken and they are going there to fix it. That reminds me of an old lyric: “It seems to me I’ve heard that song before. It’s from an old familiar score. I know it well, that melody.” A little more than two years ago, outgoing (thankfully) Speaker Nancy Pelosi pledged to “drain the swamp” that is Washington. Instead she built a hot tub. It’s difficult to change Washington. More often, Washington transforms the reformers. It’s the political equivalent of Prohibition. Maybe this bunch will avoid the “speakeasy.” Maybe. • • • Contact Cal Thomas at

Dallas has solution Recently, in the city of Dallas, Texas, officials passed an ordinance that if you are pulled over by law enforcement and not able to provide proof of insurance, your car will be towed away immediately.

uninsured cars, which often are driven by people in the country illegally. Shortly after the “no insurance” ordinance was passed, the Dallas impound lots began to fill up quickly and were full after nine days. Most of the impounded cars were driven by illegals. Not only must drivers provide proof of insurance to have the car released, they have to pay for the cost of the tow, a $350 fine and are charged $20 for every day their car is kept in the lot. I would suggest that other cities across the nation follow what Dallas is doing. Not only is it getting uninsured drivers off the road, but it is taking away vehicles driven by illegals who have no insurance. — Derwood Puckett Salisbury

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — From the most Muslim nation on earth, President Barack Obama is reaching out to the Islamic world, declaring that efforts to build trust and peace are showing promise but are still clearly “incomplete.” Obama on Wednesday will deliver one of the most personal and potentially consequential speeches of his presidency, reflecting on his own years of upbringing in Indonesia and giving an update on America’s “new beginning” with Muslims that he promised last year in Cairo. At the same time, the path to lasting peace in the Middle East was hardly looking smoother. A reminder of that difficult road was waiting for Obama when he landed here Tuesday on a steamy afternoon in southeast Asia. Israel’s decision to build more in east apartments Jerusalem, a disputed territory claimed by Palestinians, had already earned a rebuke from American diplomats before a tired, traveling president weighed in himself. “This kind of activity is never helpful when it come to peace negotiations,” Obama said when questioned at a news conference alongside Indonesia’s president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. “I’m concerned that we’re not seeing each side make the extra effort involved to get a breakthrough. ... Each of these incremental steps can end up breaking down trust.” Heavily invested and eager for Mideast stability, Obama insisted: “We’re going to keep on working on it.”


Many thanks to all my volunteers, the voters and all the people who supported my candidacy; I feel honored to have such a wealth of support and am thankful for the trust you placed in me. I will continue to be your advocate in our state's courts and fight for justice in my legal practice. R127042

Bush book tour begins with signing, interview with Oprah

Pentagon can’t explain ‘missile’ launch off California

US won’t charge for destroying CIA interrogation videos

DALLAS (AP) — Autograph-seekers lined up around a Texas shopping center Tuesday as former President George W. Bush officially kicked off the release of his new memoir at a bookstore near his Dallas home. First in line were Terry and Tammy Jones of suburban Justin, who had camped out since the previous afternoon with sleeping bags and a portable DVD player. They said when they told Bush of their wait, he said he would sign their books “with admiration,” shaking 53-year-old Terry Jones’ hand and kissing his wife’s. “Eighteen hours for two seconds and a kiss on the hand,” Tammy Jones, 52, said with a smile. Terry Jones said they wanted to tell Bush “thank you.” He said he admired Bush because “when he makes a decision, he sticks with it.” In an interview that aired Tuesday on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” Bush told the talk show host that writing the memoir “was an easy process.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon said Tuesday it did not know what created a vapor trail that crossed the skies off the Southern California coast and resembled a missile launch. Video posted on the CBS News website shows an object flying through the evening sky Monday that left a large contrail, or vapor trail. A news helicopter owned by KCBS, a CBS affiliate in Los Angeles, shot the video. Pentagon officials were stumped by the event. “Nobody within the Department of Defense that we’ve reached out to has been able to explain what this contrail is, where it came from,” Pentagon spokesman Col. Dave Lapan said. While the vapor cloud captured on video resembled that created by a rocket in flight, military officials said they didn’t know of any launches in the area. Lapan said that “all indications” were that the Defense Department was not involved with the object.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A special prosecutor cleared the CIA’s former top clandestine officer and others Tuesday of any charges for destroying agency videotapes showing waterboarding of terror suspects, but he continued an investigation into whether the harsh questioning went beyond legal boundaries. The decision not to prosecute anyone in the videotape destruction came five years to the day after the CIA destroyed its cache of 92 videos of two al-Qaida operatives, Abu Zubaydah and Abd alNashiri, being subjected to waterboarding, a form of simulated drowning. The deadline for prosecuting someone under most federal laws is five years. The part of the nearly 3year-old criminal investigation that examines whether U.S. interrogators went beyond the legal guidance given them on the rough treatment of suspects will continue, a Justice Department official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because that part of the probe is still under way.


DeMint forces early battle between tea partiers, old guard WASHINGTON (AP) — Fresh off the tea party’s show of election might, GOP Sen. Jim DeMint said Tuesday he’ll force a showdown next week with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and other old guard Republicans over “earmarked” pet projects that DeMint and other victors last week made a symbol of out-of-control deficit spending. The South Carolina Republican, buoyed by support from six GOP freshman, is optimistic he’ll win a change in internal GOP rules to effectively bar any Republican from seeking earmarks. “Americans want Congress to shut down the earmark favor factory, and next week I believe House and Senate Republicans will unite to stop pork barrel spending,”

DeMint said. DeMint won backing from 25 Senate Republicans, including McConnell, earlier this year to impose an earmark ban on Republicans and Democrats alike. Despite winning the support of a majority of Republicans, the proposal was easily defeated by Democrats and 14 pro-earmark Republicans. Thirtythree of 41 Senate Republicans then sought earmarks in this year’s spending bills.

House Democratic chairmen endorse Hoyer over Clyburn WASHINGTON (AP) — Seven Democratic House chairmen have endorsed Rep. Steny Hoyer to become the Democrats’ second in command in the next Congress when Republicans regain control of the House. The support from such veterans as Henry Waxman of California and Barney Frank of Massachusetts is the latest development in the race for the votecounting whip post between the Maryland Democrat and Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina. “Steny Hoyer is a tested leader who can help Democrats rise to the challenge of the next Congress, protect the interests of the middle class, and win back the majority,” the seven Democrats wrote in a letter to colleagues. Clyburn, the highest-ranking black member of the House, was endorsed Tuesday by the 42-member Congressional Black Caucus.

Obama reaches out to Muslims

Jose Rodriguez, who was the CIA’s top clandestine officer when the tapes were destroyed, worried that the videos would be devastating to the agency if they ever surfaced and approved their destruction. Rodriguez’s order was at odds with years of directives from CIA lawyers and the White House. Rodriguez’ lawyer, Robert Bennett, said the department made “the right decision because of the facts and the law” and called his client “a true patriot who only wanted to protect his people and his country.”


SAN DIEGO (AP) — Navy helicopters shuttled in supplies Tuesday to 4,500 passengers and crew members expected to remain stranded on a disabled cruise ship off the coast of Mexico at least through Wednesday night. Two Mexican seagoing tugboats were expected to reach the Carnival Splendor on Tuesday afternoon to begin the slow process of towing it 150 miles to the nearest Mexican port at Ensenada. Passengers will be bused back to California from there. The ship, which left from Long Beach on Sunday, was 200 miles south of San Diego when an engine room fire cut its power early Monday, according to a statement from Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines. It began drifting off the coast of northern Baja California. Monty Mathisen, of the New York-based publication Cruise Industry News, called the fire a freak accident. “This stuff does not happen, I mean once in a blue moon,” he said.

The Rowan County Animal Control reported the 12th and 13th rabies case, one involving human exposure and a dog. The agency reported the 12th case of rabies on Oct. 8. An M.C. Hess, of Erskine Drive, China Grove, told investigators a bat was inside his home, but he had no idea how it entered. Animal Control removed the bat, due to risk of human exposure and submitted it for rabies testing. The bat was sent for testing Oct. 11 and found to be positive for rabies. Hess was advised to consult his physi-


cian to discuss post exposure vaccinations. The 13th case occurred Oct. 25 when Jeff Goodman of Safrit Road, Salisbury, reported heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d found a dead raccoon near his two dogs. One of the two dogs was current on its rabies vaccinations, but the other, a male Labrador named Buddy, was not. Buddy was held in quarantine pending notification of the test results to determine if the raccoon was rabid. On Oct. 27, Animal Control reported the raccoon did in fact test positive for rabies. Buddy was later euthanized.

fer of employment for a librarian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very encouraged,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has excellent qualifications and is very enthusiastic about wanting to improve the community by getting the library open again.â&#x20AC;? Town Manager Larry Smith said the primary goal for public works is completing all of the construction before Nov. 22. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still going to be working inside, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get all the loud stuff and the dangerous stuff out of the way,â&#x20AC;? he said. The board was satisfied with Bumgarnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment and unanimously voted to allow the Spencer Candlelight Tour of Homes to use it for walk-through tours, guided by docents provided by Hometown Holidays Committee. The library will also stay open until 7 p.m. on Dec. 3 for public tours, in conjunction with the second annual Christmas In the Park & Tree Lighting Ceremony that begins at 6 p.m. The board also made a unanimous motion asking town officials to put together criteria for event usage. Aldermen Jeff Morris and Reid Walters said they would like explore opportunities to use the building to generate revenue for the town. Morris said before that can happen, guidelines need to be developed to address liability and rental fees. Contact Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.

The Spencer Board of Alderman also: â&#x20AC;˘ Amended an open burning ordinance to define rules for burning in public places. Burning in any outdoor fire pit is prohibited on property owned by the town unless approved by the fire chief. Outdoor cooking on approved grills is permitted. The original ordinance included a provision that outdoor fires on town property could be approved by the Town Board of Alderman, but the board nixed that because the fire chief is qualified to make the decision without the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s input. â&#x20AC;˘ Public Works Director Jeff Bumgarner reported the stormwater project on Crestwood Lane is complete. The deteriorating drainage systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18-inch concrete piping was replaced with 24-inch piping. Bumgarner said the nearly $5,000 additional contingency funds were not needed for the project.

Pfeiffer pounded

Blue Devils go for another title

N.C. State unveils its talented freshmen against outmanned Division II school

BY JOEDY MCCREARY Associated Press

DURHAM — Mike Krzyzewski wants everyone to choose their words carefully. He says his top-ranked Duke team isn’t defending a national title. Krzyzewski says the Blue Devils aren’t trying to repeat as champions. And he points out “replacing” is the wrong verb to use when discussing the holes left by a senior class that helped hang a fourth NCAA championship banner

in the Cameron Indoor Stadium rafters. If that sounds familiar, it should: That wordplay wound up serving the Blue Devils pretty well once before. “I think I said that about 20 years ago when we were coming off” Duke’s first national title in 1991, Krzyzewski said. “And, really, it makes sense. Like Kyrie Irving and the freshmen, they haven’t been a part of it. So to say you’re de-

Cowboys culture to change

RALEIGH — Pfeiffer guard Jeff N.C. State 111 P e t t i w a y Pfeiffer 73 slipped a second-half pass to 6-foot-6 classmate Chris Woods, who capped a brief run against N.C. State with a one-handed jam. “I got the pass from Jeff, and he calls it the Patrick Ewing dunk because he says it’s an old post player dunk, but I think it gave us some

fire,” Woods said with a laugh. “I’m kind of old and can’t do too much, so I just did what I can.” Pettiway and Woods are seniors getting ready to enter their final collegiate season together, but Division II Pfeiffer’s 111-73 exhibition loss in front of 6,420 fans at Reynolds Coliseum signaled a fresh start for the Falcons. It was the debut of new head coach Jeremy Currier, who took over for a departed Dave Davis in April.



BY JAIME ARON Associated Press

IRVING, Texas — Jason Garrett stood behind a lectern for his first news conference as the interim coach of the Dallas Cowboys. That alone sent the message there’s a new way of doing things around America’s team. Wade Phillips, you see, always sat behind a table. Rearranging the furniture isn’t going to revive the 1-7 Dallas Cowboys, but team owner Jerry Jones is hoping the switch in GARRETT leaders will. He fired Phillips on Monday and promoted Garrett from offensive coordinator to “affect a culture change” for a team that’s been playing worse each week. The swing from Phillips to Garrett isn’t as drastic as when Jones went from Bill Parcells to Phillips. But it’s still a big shift. Phillips is 63 and was reared on defense. Garrett is 44 and versed in offense. Phillips had been a head coach twice before, four times including interim stints. This is Garrett’s first time in charge at any level. Phillips never played in the NFL and never was part of a Super Bowl champion. Garrett was a backup quarterback in the NFL for 12 seasons, mostly to Troy Aikman in Dallas, and was part of two Super Bowl champions with the Cowboys. Then there’s their personalities. Phillips is folksy and laidback. Garrett, a Princeton grad, comes across more like the Ivy League image. Take the lectern, for instance. Or this description of how he’s going to run the team: “One of the things that we’re going to focus on going forward is the process.” “I believe you give yourself the best chance of winning by focusing on doing things the right way each and every day,” Garrett continued. “We’re going to emphasize that in meetings, in walkthroughs on the practice field and hopefully take that to the game field on Sunday.” Phillips talked about that, too, using the pet phrase, “Not just right, exactly right.” But sloppiness was the one constant thing for his Cowboys this season — well, that and losing. What drove fans bonkers was the lack of repercussions. Starters weren’t demoted, backups weren’t released. Phillips defended his guys at every opportunity, a player’s coach to the bitter end. Garrett declined Monday to discuss any lineup changes. But he made it clear that players will be held to a new standard.

Catawba’s Bryant Vennable, left, and Scottie Floyd reflect during the final momments of a loss to Tusculum.

Distant memory Morman putting first-game drop behind him BY MIKE LONDON

Catawba’s football team has a balanced receiving corps. Brandon Bunn scores touchdowns, Gerron Bryant makes impossible catches look easy, Brian Terwilliger flies around like his hair is on fire, and Eric Morman quietly moves the chains. Morman, Catawba’s Offensive Player of the Week, caught three passes from Patrick Dennis that produced first downs in Saturday’s 54-44 loss to Tusculum and added a late touchdown on a 4-yard toss from backup QB Daniel Griffith. Morman (6-foot-1, 195) has 30 catches this season, 84 in his career. But the junior had a tough moment in the season opener. Dennis made a perfect pass against St. Augustine’s, and Morman, who had slipped behind everyone, couldn’t

hang onto the ball in the end zone. One drop doesn’t lose a game, but that play was magnified because the Indians wound up falling 2017 to St. Augustine’s. “All the seniors — Dennis, Bunn, they just wanted MORMAN to make sure I was all right,” Morman said. “But I was fine. You just keep fighting. There was nothing I could do except come back and try to make some plays.” He’s made them. It’s hard to recall any drops by Morman since the opener, and he’s come down with balls not many humans would’ve caught. He’s made receptions diving, leaping, falling out of bounds and falling on his backside. jon c. lakey/SALISBURY POST

Amazing day for McCray in loss to Tusculum BY MIKE LONDON

Charlotte’s Harding University High has been in the news often lately. The historic, high-achieving school on the west side is on the hatchet list for proposed budget cuts, and his alma mater’s fate is never far from the thoughts of Catawba strong safety L.J. McCray. “When I first heard about all this, I thought it was joke — I could not believe it,” McCray said. “Wad-

dell maybe. Garinger maybe. But Harding? That’s just sad to hear.” McCray had Harding Rams Pride in his heart — and his wheels — on MCCRAY Saturday when he set national Division II records in Catawba’s 54-44 loss to Tusculum at Shuford Stadium. The SAC Special Teams Player

of the Week, McCray had 304 yards on six kickoff returns, shattering the Division II record of 276 set in by Hamline’s Tom Dufresne against Minnesota-Duluth in 1991. “When you break long ones, it means everyone on the return team did his job,” Catawba coach Chip Hester said. “But you also have to make someone miss, and L.J. did. He runs with so much power. Every step is powerful. He’s an explosive athlete, just really fun to watch.” McCray’s first return of the day was a 99-yard touchdown. McCray

followed a path cleared by cannonball E.J. Branch. Brian Terwilliger, Jacob Hanes and Octavius Hough made key blocks. McCray followed with a pair of 39BRANCH yard returns that provided great field position, and then he broke another one for a 94-yard TD.

Shortstop Carson Herndon, Mike’s son, and catcher Jacob NEWMAN Barber are headed to Liberty as a tagteam. Alex Newman is signing with Gardner-Webb. All three athletes are still involved with Davie’s football team. Herndon, the quarterback, has BARBER thrown for 1,806 yards and 14 TDs this season, although he sustained a concussion in Friday’s loss to North Davidson and is still questionable for this week’s playoff rematch with the Black Knights. Barber is a hard-nosed linebacker, while Newman is a defensive back. Newman’s mother went to Gardner-Webb, so the Bulldogs were high on his list all along. Newman’s big tool is speed. He’s a 6.6 runner in the 60 and turns in fielding gems regularly in the outfield. “He’ll be one heck of a center fielder for Gardner-Webb,” Coach Herndon said. “Great kid with a 4.4 GPA.” Barber, whose twin brother Jared is headed to West Virginia on a football scholarship, is a muscular catcher who weighs 205 pounds. “Baseball is really Jacob’s forte, and he’s just an athlete,” Coach Herndon said. “Unbelievable power, a strong, accurate throwing arm and a really good runner for a catcher.” Coach Herndon instructed all three of the signees on his Bases Loaded travel teams when they were youngsters. “It’s been awesome to watch these three grow up, to compete as athletes and to make the grades they needed to go on to college,” he said. Obviously, having his own son develop into a Division I talent has been the most special experience of all for Herndon and his wife Carol. Carson had no thoughts about going to Liberty until he attended a camp there, but he liked the school and liked head coach Jim Toman, a good-natured veteran who actually recruited Merrifield for the Gamecocks when he was a South Carolina assistant. Liberty is still a fairly well-kept

secret outside of Virginia, but the Flames are a rising program and went 42-19 last season. Former North Rowan standout Keegan Linza is on the pitching staff. “Liberty’s got a top-25 program,” Coach Herndon said. “They’ll have a chance to compete for a spot in the regionals every year.” Carson Herndon, who is 6-5, 210 pounds — a super-sized shortstop — became a heavily recruited player as a junior, leading the War Eagles in batting average, RBIs and steals. He participated in the State Games, and Mike Herndon, who was coaching, got to throw batting practice to his son. That was a thrill. “Everyone told me Carson hit the ball as well as anyone at the Games,” Herndon said. “He misplayed two in the field or he might’ve got a lot more offers.” There were still plenty to choose from — UNC Greensboro, Appalachian State, Gardner-Webb, Western Carolina and UNC Asheville, and so on. But Liberty was the first to offer. No one ever topped that offer financially and Herndon never found any school where he felt more comfortable. It’s doubtful Herndon will stay at shortstop in college. His long frame figures to keep adding muscle and weight, so he eventually should become a power-hitting third baseman. “Carson’s just now growing into his body,” his father said. “He’ll probably wind up at third base, but if you’ve played shortstop, you can play anywhere.” Herndon conceivably could also pitch. Although he hasn’t been on the mound much, his fastball has been clocked in the high 80s. The CPC, as usual, will be a bear next spring, with Division I players and even potential draft picks on the majority of the rosters. Davie should do fine with its three D-I signees, and that’s not the end of the talent pool. Outfielder/pitcher Joe Watson, a pretty amazing athlete, has received college baseball offers, but still plans to sign with Duke for football in February. Watson has 45 catches for 850 yards and nine TDs this season. There’s also talent in Davie’s junior class. Hard-throwing hurler Ryan Foster already has D-I offers. Coach Herndon will bring a strong team to this spring’s Cliff Peeler Baseball Tournament at Salisbury High. Whether there are any more Merrifields remains to be seen. “I was watching when Whit got that hit that won the World Series,” Herndon said. “My wife asked me if I thought Whit was nervous going up there in the 11th inning against UCLA. I told her he wasn’t thinking about being nervous, he was thinking about ending that thing. That’s what he did, and now he’s a rock star in South Carolina.”

North Hills wins opener From staff reports

The North Hills boys basketball team opened with an exciting 71-68 win against Brisbane Academy on Tuesday night. “We were pretty fortunate to get a win,” North Hills coach Jason Causby said. “A little sloppy, typical first game.” Oshon West scored 17 points to lead the Eagles. Moussa Doucara (6-foot-9) had 12 points and 11 boards. Samron Hillie scored 12 points, and Justin Wright, 6-8 Tony Nunn and 6-7 Rashawn Joshua added nine each. Hillie had five assists. Nunn had three WEST blocks. Nunn and Joshua had eight boards apiece. Doucara got off to a great start with eight quick points but didn’t get frequent touches after that. Sophomore point guard Keyvon Jones scored 25 points for Brisbane, a Charlotte prep school. “We had a real bad stretch in the second quarter, bad shot selection combined with a poor job of stopping the ball defensively, and we went from up six to down seven,” Causby said. “But we were able to make up for it with a big third quarter.” North Hills has a big challenge on Friday against Charlotte’s United Faith Christian Academy, which had 2010 graduates move on to Florida State, Missouri and George Washington. United Faith center Peter Jurkin is a 7-footer committed to Indiana. BRISBANE (68) — Jones 25, Wallace 19, Gibson 10, Miau 8, Crawford 4, White 2.

Eric Morman tries to avoid a Tusculum defender during Saturday’s loss. mother always like it,” Morman said. Morman played offense and defense for a while at Richmond County but an attempted tackle on Fayetteville Jack Britt freight train George Bell, who later played at Catawba, convinced Morman his future was on offense. “E-Mo,” as he’s known to his teammates, redshirted in 2007 and learned the ropes from pass-catching standouts such as Brent Johnson and Antwan Strong. He moved into a starting role in 2008 and made 17 receptions.

He caught 37 balls as a sophomore, including a school-record tying 13 against Carson-Newman on a day he was hobbling with a sprained ankle. Morman’s touchdown catch on Saturday was only the sixth of his career, but he’s become an exceptional possession receiver. When the sticks need to be moved, Dennis has confidence Morman will be at the right place at the right time. “I’ve improved my routerunning more than anything since I’ve been here,” Morman said. Morman’s contributions

to the program have extended beyond catching passes. He’s an outstanding student and is the football team’s representative on the Student Advisory Council. Catawba plays next at Lenoir-Rhyne, a venue where Charles Morman finished his career in 2006. Charles made two interceptions in a 32-24 Catawba victory, including a gameclinching pick in the final seconds. Eric remembers watching his brother’s last game.

McCray started at corner as a true freshman last season and has made the transition to strong safety as a hard-hitting sophomore. In addition to his return magic, he had eight tackles and a quarterback hurry on Saturday. He got in one of the few solid licks on Tusculum quarterback Bo Cordell on a blitz through a crease up the middle. “But I have to give Cordell props,” McCray said. “All day long, he put the ball where only his receivers had a chance to catch it.” Even with his recordbreaking day on special teams, Hester is more excited about McCray’s future at safety. “People will be talking about the day L.J. had returning kickoffs for a very long time,” he said. “It’s a record that will be tough for anyone to break, but what really excites us is he’s gonna be a really great safety, an All-SAC kind of safety.”

The future for McCray couldn’t be brighter. “I know Tusculum’s quarterback is only a sophomore, and that means two more years of him,” Hester said. “But L.J.’s only a sophomore as well, and he’s already one of our teams leaders.” Friday night, the Harding Rams visit powerful West Rowan for what conceivably could be the embattled school’s final football game. Hopefully, Harding’s “Band of Gold,” will make the trip. It’s an amazing high school band with a well-deserved national reputation. Mark Sanders, Harding’s first-year head coach, was offensive coordinator and QBs coach when McCray was at Harding, and McCray thinks a lot of him. McCray will be in Mount Ulla on Friday. They won’t let him run back kickoffs, but he’ll lend moral support. If this is the swan song for the maroon-and-gold Rams, he wants to be with them.

MORMAN “Eric’s got talent, he’s gotten stronger every year, and he’s a guy we know we can always depend on,” Catawba coach Chip Hester said. “He’s become the total receiver. He can catch it, he knows how to run with it after he catches it, and he can block.” One of Morman’s catches this season was a 43-yard touchdown that gave Catawba the lead for good at Newberry. It came on a secondand-21 play, one snap after Dennis was sacked on first down. Still, a catch against Brevard when the Indians were trailing in the second quarter is Morman’s favorite. “I like to make the thirddown catches, and this was a third-and-8 and I went across the middle for it,” Morman said. “Pat put it there for me.” Morman was an easy recruit for Catawba assistant John Fitz out of 4A powerhouse Richmond County, where he grew accustomed to winning. The Raiders were 25-2 his last two seasons. Elon, Wingate, Campbell and Newberry also were interested in Morman, but Catawba had the inside track because Morman is the younger brother of former Catawba defensive back Charles Morman, who now coaches at Lexington. “I went to all my brother’s games when he played at Catawba, so I knew all about the school, and my





Knaus: Crew swap was organizational decision Associated Press

CHARLOTTE — Chad Knaus defended the decision to dump Jimmie Johnson’s crew with two races remaining, a move he said was done for the overall good of Hendrick Motorsports. “I don’t think people understand it’s not an easy decision,” the crew chief said Tuesday, a day after Hendrick Motorsports said Jeff Gordon’s crew would pit Johnson for the rest of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. “There are emotions involved. We love our guys. We eat, sleep, drink with them. We win with them and we lose with them. But ultimately it is bigger than seven guys. We are 520-people strong here (at Hendrick Motorsports).” Knaus benched his crew in the middle of Sunday’s race when an accident knocked Gordon out of the race and his crew became available. The No. 48 team had slogged

through a pair of pit stops that had cost Johnson, the fourtime defending NASCAR champion, valuable track position. Even though Gordon’s No. 24 crew was flawless the remainder of the race, Johnson finished ninth and dropped out of the points lead this late in a championship race for the first time since 2005. Race winner Denny Hamlin took over the points lead, and Johnson goes into Phoenix this weekend trailing by 33 points. Knaus said Gordon’s accident gave the organization a rare opportunity to make a change on a day the No. 48 team wasn’t performing. “It was a unique situation,” Knaus said. “They’re crashed out, they’re sitting there and our guys are struggling. To not do that would be a mistake.” Knaus also downplayed the significance of making a move viewed by many as cutthroat

McNabb: ‘It’s hilarious’

PFEIFFER N.C. State jumped out to a 24-5 lead, and Woods’ dunk cut Pfeiffer’s deficit to 18 points with 13:43 remaining in the game. “It was the first time playing together against live competition, so I think it’s a game we have to take a lot of good from because the margin of error against a team like N.C. State is so small,” the 29-year-old Currier said. “I’m happy the guys competed for 40 minutes. We had a couple lapses, and N.C. State did what they should have. That’s capitalize.” Woods scored a gamehigh 23 points on 9-for-24 shooting and grabbed a game-high 12 rebounds in 35 minutes. Pettiway posted 21 points, and Josh Humphrey added 14. Six members of the Wolfpack reached double figures. Tracy Smith, Lorenzo Brown, Ryan Harrow and C.J. Leslie had 17 points apiece. Brown, Harrow and Leslie are highly touted freshmen who were performing in front of N.C. State fans for the first time. Harrow and Leslie came off the bench. “It was fun,” Harrow said. “We’ve been working hard to get to this day. For our first time out, with the freshmen and the guys that have been here, I think we jelled pretty well.” Currier said Pfeiffer, which averaged 103.1 points a game last year, will continue to play at a fast pace. He wants his team to share the ball a little more, though, and take advantage of open looks that come from extra passes. The Falcons didn’t press N.C. State because of its backcourt talent, and the only tie occurred in the first 35 seconds. Woods rebounded an airball and screamed after being fouled on a putback. He missed the free throw. The Wolfpack rattled off the next nine points and took a 52-34 lead into halftime. Woods and Pettiway combined for 29 of their team’s 39 secondhalf points. “If we were able to stick together getting beat by that much, we’re still a family,” Woods said. “If we stick together, I think the future is very bright.”

CHARLOTTE — Kyle Busch was fined $25,000 by NASCAR on Tuesday for his obscene gesture, and the driver again apologized for losing his temper. Busch was also placed on probation through Dec. 31 — the same day as his wedding — for what NASCAR called unsportsmanlike conduct in Sunday’s race at Texas Motor Speedway. “I lost my cool, plain and simple,” Busch said in a statement. “It’s not acceptable, and I know that. I apologize to NASCAR, its fans, all the partners who support Joe Gibbs Racing, and all the people who work so hard to give me a racecar that’s capable of winning races every week. All of those people deserve better from me, and I owe it to them to keep my emotions in check.”

Kyle singler is a preseason All-American.

DUKE FROM 1B fending something that they weren’t a part of ... if I said it, it would be dumb.” Semantics aside, what Krzyzewski is saying is that he’s chasing the first championship for this particular collection of Blue Devils. Instead of simply plugging two big bodies into the lineup to fill the holes left by a pair of graduated post players, he’s changing the way they’ll play at both ends of the court to better take advantage of a lineup that returns a few familiar faces but otherwise will operate at a distinctly faster pace. “The reason ‘replace’ isn’t so good is because we’re not running the same system,” Krzyzewski said. “Coaches that run a system every year — there’s nothing wrong with that — then they’re trying to plug in somebody, like ‘I need this point guard to do what that point guard did.’ We try never to do that, so you never feel like you have to be like somebody. Be yourself. Let’s develop a system and go from there.” A combination that includes returning starters Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith welcomes hyped freshman point guard Kyrie Irving and transfer Seth Curry — Stephen’s younger brother — to the rotation. They figure to play central roles in the Blue Devils’ pursuit of title No. 5. Duke opens the season ranked No. 1 for the seventh time, and was an overwhelming choice to win the Atlantic Coast Conference for the third straight year. Among the other times the Blue Devils followed championship runs with preseason No. 1 rankings the following autumn, the Christian Laettner and Bobby Hurley-led team won another title in 199192. The Blue Devils also were the preseason No. 1 in 200102, the last time they tried for two in a row. “It’s not in our mind to go back-to-back — it’s just to win another national championship,” said Singler, the most outstanding player at the Final Four. “We have a lot of talent this year, and it’s not so far out of reach. It’s a definite goal of ours.” With the emphasis on playing a little faster, Duke figures to look like a vastly different team than it did last

spring. Last year’s group of defense-minded Blue Devils rode the hot outside shooting of Singler, Smith and Jon Scheyer and the tough interior presence of 7-footer Brian Zoubek and emotional leader Lance Thomas through both the ACC and NCAA brackets. They allowed only one team in the NCAA tournament to reach 60 points, but had to hold their collective breath as Butler’s game-winning heave at the buzzer bounced off the rim in Indianapolis. “We do have a lot of offensive weapons, but we’ve got to focus on defense,” Singler said. “Just going through what we went through last year, we realize that playing defense and working together is a key to winning. We’re definitely going to have to do that this year.” They will, but in a new way. Instead of locking down on opponents in the half-court game, this team will look to take advantage of its improved depth by using more full-court pressure to generate turnovers, and depending on its guards to rebound from the perimeter and get the Blue Devils off and running. “Hopefully, we can rebound, so we can run,” Krzyzewski said. “We’re going to try to force more turnovers and try to get more possessions in a game. I think more possessions in a game would favor our group, whereas not as many possessions in a game would have favored last year’s group.” Krzyzewski has never been afraid to shake up his team’s style during his threeplus decades in Durham, but he cautions that this team might not be championshipcaliber when the season starts. It’s more important for them to peak in March and April. “I shouldn’t say this because people expect us to win, be perfect right away,” Krzyzewski said. “The people who expect that won’t get that. So we don’t expect that. We need to develop like our team last year developed, and give them an opportunity to do that. We can’t play for the national championship every practice or every game, and we can’t play to be perfect every game. What we need to do is give them a chance to grow in a system, and then, by the time you are in a position to (play for a title), be ready for it.”

WASHINGTON— Donovan McNabb says it’s “hilarious” to think that he doesn’t know the Washington Redskins’ offensive play book. Or that he has trouble calling plays in the huddle. “That is hilarious to me. That is really funny to me,” McNabb said Tuesday during his weekly appearance on ESPN980. “For everyone who may not have heard any of this, it’s probably a shock to them.” Those words aside, the six-time Pro Bowl quarterback spent most of his radio time trying to downplay the fallout from his benching in the final minutes of a loss to the Detroit Lions. Not surprisingly, McNabb said he was tired of the whole thing. “It’s over to me, and I just look to move on,” he said. Coach Mike Shanahan has offered varying explanations of the decision to bench McNabb, initially saying that backup Rex Grossman had a better grasp of the team’s 2-minute offense. Shanahan later said McNabb’s sore hamstrings had kept the team from practicing the hurry-up attack and that he was concerned McNabb didn’t have the “cardiovascular endurance” to run it as effectively as Grossman. McNabb said he was able to clear the air in talks with Shanahan and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. He said he was satisfied with what he heard. “Yes, I’m satisfied,” McNabb said. “You get what you ask for, and after that you put it behind you and move on.” McNabb remains the starter for the Redskins (4-4), who had a bye Sunday after the loss to Detroit.

NO OCHO  CINCINNATI — Chad Ochocinco is tired of being a sidekick. When the Cincinnati Bengals signed Terrell Owens at the start of training camp, Ochocinco was content playing “Robin” to T.O’s “Batman,” saying he was glad to stay in the background to help the team. Not any longer. Ochocinco went out of his way to call attention to himself during a 27-21 loss to Pittsburgh on Monday night, wearing bright gold cleats that caught everyone’s eye. He also vented his frustration as the game went along, exchanging words with quarterback Carson Palmer and coach Marvin Lewis.

NHL RALEIGH — Joe Corvo scored two power-play goals for the struggling unit, Eric Staal had four assists and Carolina scored four times in the first 71⁄2 minutes to beat Edmnoton 7-1.

The Hurricanes forced an early change in the Edmonton net, taking a 4-0 lead against Nikolai Khabibulin on just eight shots. Patrick Dwyer scored 26 seconds in after a rush down the ice, putting in Brandon Sutter’s shot off the pads of Khabibulin and starting the onslaught. Erik Cole scored 49 seconds later on the power play. Edmonton, playing the second of a fivegame U.S. road trip, has been outscored 2110 in the first period this season. Canadiens 2, Canucks 0 MONTREAL — Carey Price made 35 saves for his second shutout and the Montreal Canadiens ended Vancouver’s sixgame winning streak with a 2-0 victory over the Canucks on Tuesday night. Lightning 4, Maple Leafs 0 TAMPA, Fla. — Steven Stamkos scored two goals, Dan Ellis had his second shutout of the season and the Lightning handed the Maple Leafs their sixth straight loss. Senators 5, Thrashers 2 OTTAWA — Jason Spezza scored two goals and the Senators extended their winning streak to four straight.

DAILEY DIES LAS VEGAS — Quintin Dailey, a former All-American basketball player who also played 10 seasons in the NBA and made the 1982-1983 All-Rookie team, has died in Las Vegas. He was 49.

BASEBALL NEW YORK — Ichiro Suzuki won his 10th straight Gold Glove for a full season of fielding excellence. Mark Buehrle won again, perhaps clinching his spot with an acrobatic play on opening day. Derek Jeter, well, his selection is likely to set off another loud round of dispute over whether the award is relevant anymore. Rawlings announced the American League honors Tuesday. Managers and coaches vote for players in their leagues and can't pick players on their own teams. Also chosen were first baseman Mark Teixeira and second baseman Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees; third baseman Evan Longoria and outfielder Carl Crawford of the Tampa Bay Rays; Minnesota catcher Joe Mauer and Seattle outfielder Franklin Gutierrez. • BRISTOL, Conn. — Jon Miller and Joe Morgan are out as announcers on ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball" after 21 seasons. • NEW YORK — Cliff Lee will be taking a slow approach to free agency. "We're just gathering information. That's always the early stages of this process," agent Darek Braunecker said Monday, a day after the former AL Cy Young Award winner became a free agent.

Pacers: 54-point quarter Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — The Pacers made their first 20 shots of the third quarter, missing out on a perfect period when former Duke star Josh McRoberts was off on a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds left. Mike Dunleavy scored 24 of his 31 points in the Pacers’ 54-point period. Indiana, which shot 64 percent overall, led 11376 at the end of the third quarter. Darren Collison scored 29 points, Tyler Hansbrough had 20 points and nine rebounds, and Danny Granger added 19 points for the Pacers (3-3). Indiana set league season highs for points, field goals made and field-goal percentage. Former North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson led Denver with 19 points and Arron Afflalo added 17. Carmelo Anthony scored 13 points on 5-for-15 shooting for the Nuggets (4-4). Jazz 116, Heat 114 MIAMI — Paul Millsap scored a careerhigh 46 points, including a putback at the buzzer to force overtime, and the Utah

Jazz got two free throws from Francisco Elson with 0.4 seconds left to beat the Miami Heat 116-114 on Tuesday night. Hornets 101, Clippers 82 NEW ORLEANS — Willie Green scored 19 points and fellow reserve guard Jarryd Bayless added 15, helping New Orleans remain unbeaten. Chris Paul added 13 points and eight assists for New Orleans, which is now off to a franchise-best 7-0 start. Cavaliers 93, Nets 91 NEWARK, N.J. — Antawn Jamison and Anthony Parker hit late 3-pointers and Cleveland got 52 points from its reserves in its third consecutive victory. J.J. Hickson led the Cavaliers’ balanced attack with 18 points. Bucks 107, Knicks 80 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Brandon Jennings scored 19 points, Drew Gooden added 17 points and eight rebounds, and Milwaukee broke out of an early season shooting slump. Amare Stoudemire led the Knicks with 19 points and Wilson Chandler added 11.

Is it safe to have two flu shots? Dear Dr. Gott: We had the H1N1 flu shot at our doctor's office earlier this year. Now we see H1N1 is in the flu shot for this coming season. Is it safe to take it again? Or should we try and get the single flu shot if possible? Dear Reader: To my knowledge, there is no single flu shot, so I believe it is appropriate for you to receive a seasonal-flu injection. My reasoning is that seasonal flu covers different strains that you wouldn't be immunized against if you didn't have the 2010 injecDR. PETER tion. What you received earGOTT lier this year was specifically for H1N1. To be on the safe side and because I don't know your age, allergies or health history, you should clear this with your primary-care physician before being immunized. The swine-flu pandemic began in April 2009 and took more than 18,000 lives world-

wide, according to Fox News, which also reported the governments of North America and Europe dumped their vaccines after finding their shelves were full of unused serum and supplies that were about to expire. Conservative skeptics held back and simply didn't get immunized. France also felt the threat of a pandemic was an overestimation. Germany ended up with 34 million doses of vaccine from manufacturers, with very little used. That said, the World Health Organization believes the 2009 H1N1 viruses will continue to spread in many parts of the world for years to come. The 2010 to 2011 seasonalinfluenza vaccine will protect against the H3N2 virus, influenza B virus and the 2009 H1N1 virus. Those who had H1N1 or the vaccine last year can safely receive the seasonal-flu vaccine this year. Dear Dr. Gott: It is definitely better for some vitamins and minerals to be taken with food at mealtimes, but other food supplements must be taken on an empty stomach. You can also take smaller

amounts of some vitamins and minerals between meals, with water, and get a bigger punch from them. For me, it's better to take mineral capsules, tablets or powders with lunch or supper than it is for breakfast, when my stomach enzymes aren't strong enough to digest them well. The minerals give me a stomachache. Also, never take a multi-B vitamin before bedtime or you won't get to sleep. See, it all depends! Dear Reader: You certainly appear to have done your homework. I could not find confirmation for some of your claims, such as multi-B at bedtime causing insomnia; however, each of us responds differently to medication, even over-the-counters. Remember that vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients, but the body typically only requires small amounts of them. Readers should speak with their physicians before beginning a regimen, because a well-balanced, nutritious diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables will likely be all that is required to maintain good health.

Furthermore, read labels to determine whether a medication or supplement should be taken with food or without, or in the morning or at bedtime. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report "Vitamins and Minerals." Other readers who would like a copy should send a self-addressed stamped No. 10 envelope and a $2 check or money order made payable to Newsletter, and mailed to Newsletter, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092-0167. Be sure to mention the title or print an order form off my website at 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.

Italian-American group calls for VH1 show to end FAIRFIELD, N.J. (AP) — An Italian-American group is calling for VH1 to pull the plug on its show “My Big Friggin’ Wedding.” UNICO National says the TV show is a “big racist stereotype of Italian-Americans.” The group’s media

executive, Andre DiMino, says if VH1 doesn’t respond, he’ll start contacting advertisers with the organization’s complaints. Several cast members on the reality show about couples making wedding plans are Italian-American.

The show began airing last month. Neither VH1 nor 495 Productions, which makes the show, had an immediate response. Fairfield, N.J.-based UNICO previously protested “Jersey Shore” and “The

Sopranos” for similar reasons. In the case of “Jersey Shore,” producers cut back on shots of the Italian flag and references to cast members as “guidos.”

Wednesday, Nov. 10 Some interesting, positive changes could be in store for you in the next solar cycle concerning your social life, but it will be up to you to take advantage of them. Having more interest in your work might be what eclipses them. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You’ll be able to express yourself in a rather eloquent fashion when you want to, due to your quick thinking. If there is something you desire to promote, now is the time to do it. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Even though they are likely to come about in a rather roundabout fashion, personal goals can be accomplished. Be sure to keep all of your windows of opportunity open. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Should you cross paths deliberately or accidentally with persons who have authority and/or clout, you’ll be treated with the utmost respect and consideration. Use it to your advantage. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Lucky you, because there is a concerned friend of yours who is aware of your needs and is operating behind the scenes, trying to help you regarding a matter of extreme importance. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Even though you may be unaware of it, your thinking and suggestions will have a considerable impact on others, especially close friends. What you say will be wise and very helpful. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Something you believe to be quite unsatisfactory is far more pliable than you may have led yourself to believe. Take another hard look at it. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Balance can be found once again in a situation that has been throwing you off your mark lately, even though it might take a bit of cooperation from another in order to pull if off. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — It looks like you’re going to get an opportunity to tap into a second channel of earnings. You aren’t likely to hesitate, because it’s from a source that has generated income for you once before. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Your marvelous talent for making compatriots feel extremely important will serve you well. Someone among them will be inclined to offer you something not given to most. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — It behooves you to include some of the tough jobs in today’s agenda that you’ve been putting off doing, because they’ll be easily managed at this time. Get them done now, while things are running smoothly. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t hesitate to take a gamble on a goal that requires a calculated risk to pull off. Even though you’ll be rather fortunate, be sure you carefully study all the nuances first. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Conditions are starting to brighten somewhat where your material interests are concerned, and if you play your cards right you can stabilize a trend that will make you feel more secure.

More on keeping trump control BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate

Henry G. Stott said, “Engineering is the art of organizing and directing men and controlling the forces and materials of nature for the benefit of the human race.” Playing in a suit contract is the art of organizing, directing and controlling the trumps for the benefit of your partnership. In this example of trump control, how would you plan the play in four spades after West leads first the diamond ace, then the diamond king? Once it became apparent that your side didn’t have a diamond stopper, you reached game in your strong 5-2 fit. This is often the best contract in these circumstances as long as declarer can retain trump control. True, here five clubs would have been an easy contract. But do you always reach the best spot? You apparently have only two losers: one diamond and one club. However, you have only nine top tricks: five spades and four hearts. If you ruff the second diamond and draw three rounds of trumps, getting news of the 4-2 break, you will turn to clubs — too late. East will win with his ace and play another diamond, forcing out your last trump. You can cash two hearts and two clubs, but then East will ruff in and cash a diamond trick for down one.

Lead a club at trick three. If East ducks his ace, you will run for home. So East wins and returns the diamond queen. To avoid guesswork, discard a heart or club. Give up one trick to retain trump control. If East leads another diamond, ruff it with dummy’s spade ace, draw trumps, and claim.
