Population to hit 150K by 2015
DECK THE HALLS
Number of county residents could rise 5 percent in five years BY KARISSA MINN firstname.lastname@example.org
Jon c. Lakey/SALISBURY POST
Mary Moose sets a table setting in the former garage of China Grove’s long time doctor G. Clyde Shinn and his wife Opal. The garage is now closed in and has been made into a multi-purpose room. In 1947, he and his wife built what was then a ‘cutting-edge modern home,’ according to present owner Mary Moose, president of Victory Wealth Management Inc. whose ofﬁces now occupy the solid concrete residence. The home is part of the annual Christmas tour of homes.
Rowan County’s population is projected to hit 150,000 in 2015, rising nearly 5 percent in five years, which a local economic development official says may signal a growing county economy. Business First magazine projects the county’s population will reach 143,000 by Jan. 16 and 150,000 by Oct. 20, 2015. The current estimated population as of Nov. 15 is 142,755, earning the Salisbury micropolitan area a rank of 293 out of 940 metropolitan and micropolitan areas analyzed. Robert Van Geons, director of economic development agency RowanWorks, said micropolitan areas are typically defined by the surrounding county borders. The Salisbury micropolitan area would include all of Rowan County. He said the Business First numbers are very similar to those he has seen from other sources, and the projected growth is a good sign. “Moderate population growth is a sign of a strong local economy,” Van Geons said. Growth in the population means more people will buy goods, services and homes, and it “stimulates the local economy and the housing market.” Too much growth too fast, though, can cause problems. Van Geons said during the first part of the latest recession, some of this region’s high un-

Homes open for annual China Grove Christmas Tour BY WENDY WILSON For the Salisbury Post
CHINA GROVE — The organizers of China Grove’s annual Christmas tour of homes take pride that their event is distinctive: the tour is a joyous experience that also offers food, frivolity, song and storytelling, in addition to a close look at holiday decorations in some of the town’s most beautiful homes. The tour takes place Saturday and the fun begins when participants meet at the Historic Roller Mill for a variety of hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages, plus a private viewing of the museum’s artifacts. Established by five Christian farmers in 1895, the mill was closed 100 years later, only to be purchased by the Historical Society of South Rowan after a whirlwind 5½week fundraising effort. In May of this year, the Roller Mill came full circle when a farmer’s market took root there; according to Barbara
The remodeled walk-in kitchen is part of the tour.
“There isn’t an inch of this place, ground floor or underneath, that I haven’t touched.” MARY MOOSE on the remodeled Shinn home
Doby, president of the Historical Society, some of those local growers are descendants of the mill’s founders. From the mill, participants board a comfortable
tour bus to begin their exploration of Christmas lights and decorations throughout the town. Because so many people begin their holiday season each year by going on
this particular tour, it is “always like a family reunion,” Doby said. “We may only see each other at this time, but we all greet each other like old friends … and welcome any first-timers as if they were long-lost cousins.” Each bus has its own guide who not only provides a lively commentary about historic landmarks and homes, but also leads the singing of Christmas carols. The result may resemble a joyful noise more than the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, but the spirit of the season is contagious. The first stop is the former home of Dr. G. Clyde Shinn and his wife Opal. Shinn practiced medicine for more than half a century in Rowan County. In 1947, he and his wife built what was then a “cutting-edge modern home,” according to present owner Mary Moose, president of Victory Wealth Management Inc. whose offices now occupy the solid con-

RCCC adds 500 new computers to campus BY SARAH CAMPBELL email@example.com
KANNAPOLIS — Rowan-Cabarrus Community College has spent about $250,000 adding 500 “thin client” computers to its campuses. “They’re very, very small computers that in our case have all the horsepower of a regular computer,” RCCC CIO Jeremy Campbell said. Campbell said size isn’t the only advantage. The smaller computers cost about $500 each and draws about an eighth of the energy a typical computer uses. “They are very green,” he said. The small computers also have no moving parts, allowing them to operate silently, which helps classroom instruction. Campbell said syncing the machines with a network is also a breeze. “When you edit one computer, the change is instantly pushed to all computers,” he said. Campbell presented an update on the college’s information-technology services during a presentation at the college’s board of trustees meeting on Monday. Since taking the post as RCCC’s leading information technology official in May, Campbell has worked on an overhaul of the technology.

$10,000 gift added to Christmas Happiness Suspect arrested minutes after Cleveland break-in BY KARISSA MINN
The only gifts Janet Carroll got for Christmas one year were toothpaste and a toothbrush. Her husband Keith remembers not having enough to eat growing up. Today, the couple gives thousands of dollars each year to help other children who are going through what they did. This year, $10,000 went to the Christmas Happiness Fund. “I was dirt poor, and my husband was dirt poor, so we know what it’s like not to have anything,” Janet said. “We didn’t forget where we came from.” Keith and Janet, who live outside China Grove, say they’re “not rich by any means.” Janet lost her job last year after 26 years of working with Philip Morris in Concord. She now helps take care of her stepgranddaughter — the child of Keith’s daughter, Karyn CarrollRamey. Keith is a builder who isn’t finding work, and he is set to undergo back surgery this week.

But they both say they’re fortunate enough to not need or want for anything. Keith and Janet have given to various other organizations in past years, both separately and together since they met seven years ago. In 2008, the couple donated $12,500 to Christmas Happiness in honor of Janet’s son, J.P. Richardson, who returned last December from serving in Iraq with the U.S. Army. They gave a similar amount to Main Street Mission, which runs a food pantry, in China Grove. Janet said when she first gave to the food pantry, she was struck by how little was given compared to her fully-stocked pantry at home. For Keith, seeing children there waiting eagerly for a peanut butter sandwich made him remember just how good he has it. “When you grow up dirt poor, and you look around and you see people eating like you used to eat, it kind of touches you a little bit and reminds you of where you were,” he said. “If I can make a little kid smile or keep somebody from going hungry — that’s why I do it.” The couple donated exclusively

to Main Street Mission in 2009, but this year they’re once again giving to both after selling their house this fall for a profit. “My husband prayed to the good Lord that if we sell it, we’ll make sure that we give a donation to feed the hungry and give kids gifts for Christmas,” Janet said. “We sold it in three weeks, so we’ve got to keep our promise.” This year, the couple’s donation to Christmas Happiness was made “in honor of Jesus Christ Our Savior.” Janet said she and Keith both

CLEVELAND - Officers arrested a suspect in a breaking and entering moments after it occurred early Monday morning. According to authorities, Rowan County Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Dixon was patrolling in Cleveland about 4 a.m. when he noticed a car backed up to HELLARD Steele Jones Store, 6420 Chenault Road. When he approached the car, no one was inside. The officer found a driver’s license belonging to Adam Fredrick Hellard, a 20year-old who lives nearby. Dixon noticed signs of a forced entry on the front door and a window. Hellard’s car was filled with merchandise that appeared to be taken from the store. Deputy Pete Miller happened to stop a suspicious vehicle that was driving down Cool Springs

Road and Beehive Lane nearby. The driver’s name happened to match up to the mysterious driver’s license found in the abandoned car at Steele Jones Store. Hellard, of 225 Backside Drive, was arrested for felony breaking and entering, felony larceny after breaking and entering, felony larceny of a firearm, and more charges are pending. He was given a $100,000 secured bond. A convicted felon, Hellard could also face a charge of possession of a firearm by a felon. Authorities said Hellard most likely ran to his residence when he saw the officer and grabbed another car, but was caught when he tried to watch the officer in the distance. Authorities said Hellard also had stolen merchandise in the second car. Total merchandise taken included cigars, chewing tobacco, cigarettes, knives, three 12-packs of Budweiser and Bud Light, a pair of handcuffs, soft drinks and a 9mm handgun.

POPULATION FROM 1a employment rates were caused by population growth that outpaced job growth. “The total number of jobs actually continued to increase, but unemployment went up because of people moving here,” he said. Then, a larger toll was taken when the region began losing jobs and unemployment rose sharply. People aren’t moving around very much now, Van Geons said, but when they do, they’re moving to areas where there are more job opportunities. Rowan County has been slowly adding more jobs and attracting and growing more businesses. “Steady, continued population growth is a good thing,” Van Geons said. “Especially if people are coming for employment opportunities, that is the result of our economy being better than some other places. It represents workforce growth.” Business First produces weekly population estimates for states, metros, micros, counties, towns, cities and villages. Results are published
in the “Numbers” section of each week’s print edition. Projected populations are generated by a computer formula that Business First developed in 2000 and recalibrates annually. The formula uses a decade of U.S. Census Bureau data to extrapolate growth trends. A representative with the Census Bureau said the first population counts from the 2010 Census, which will be used in redistricting, will be available in February or March of 2011. Demographic data and more detailed counts will be available in the next couple of years. Business First ranked the Lexington-Thomasville micropolitan area at 257, with an estimated current population of 160,245. StatesvilleMooresville is ranked at 249 with a population of 163,931.

“We’ve been trying to look at how we deliver the best services at the best price and make them available to the largest number of people,” he said. Campbell said his team “radically and rapidly updated” the college’s technology services. The entire department was restructured to redistribute staff in their areas of expertise. “We wanted to make sure we had the resources in the right place to support the mission of the college,” Campbell said. After establishing a new organizational structure, Campbell and his team went to work. In the last six months, about 30,000 hours of manpower have gone into modernizing the college’s technology. An active directory has been created to simplify acess to instructional software, such as WebAdvisor, e-mail and Blackboard. The college is also working to get Microsoft “online cloud” services up and running. Cloud computing allows computers to share resources, software, and information over the Internet or network.

“It has very high reliability,” Campbell said. “Our old server was faulty. It would go down, but with this if one serve goes down it continues to work.” Campbell said Microsoftbased cloud computing also allows users to more easily share documents. “We’re just using it as a framework for sharing and collaboration of documents,” he said. Although the college has traditionally been a campus that uses networking from technology-company Cisco, Campbell said it is looking for a new network that will not charge a maintenence fee. The college is currently paying about $34,000 a year — 20 percent of the device cost — for Cisco, Campbell said. “We’d like to get that down to zero if we can,” he said. Campbell said as his team continues to work on improving the college’s technology infrastructure, he asks two questions — what is the impact on student achievement and would students choose the college if they had the opportunity. “Those are things we haven’t always considering in the past and they’re important,” he said. “We’re preparing for innovation yet to come.” Contact Sarah Campbell at 704-797-7683.

Prime poster Erwin Middle School student wins statewide competition BY SARAH CAMPBELL firstname.lastname@example.org
It took Madison Eaton about two class periods to draw, color and complete the poster that took home first place in the exceptional children’s division of the North Carolina School Bus Safety Poster Contest. Now, Eaton, a sixth-grader at Erwin Middle School, is waiting to find out whether or not her poster will claim the national title. The winning poster will be used to promote Bus Safety Week in 2011, with the artist receiving a $1,000 savings bond. Eaton designed her poster, using colored pencils and markers, while in the fifth grade at Morgan Elementary School. She was given a plaque, certificate, letter from the state and an MP3 player during a ceremony at Erwin Middle on Monday. Dr. Jim Emerson, chairman of the RowanSalisbury Board of Education, Judy Burris, the school system’s director of transportation, Morgan Elementary Principal Susan Sigmon, Erwin Principal Kristi Rhone and Morgan art teacher Crystle Lineberger congratulated Eaton. “She did a really good job,” Lineberger said. “She always seemed to enjoy art ... sometimes she wasn’t sure about something when she started it, but once she got started she did some really good work.” Lineberger said she’s had students entering the poster contest since she started teaching art about a decade ago. “I try to teach my students that you can take something and fix it, that it doesn’t always have to look the way you think it should in order for everyone else to like it,” she said. Although every student can’t win, Lineberger said contests like this encourage students to do their best. “Sometimes they just need to know that somebody else is going to

ter’s plaque will hang on in the hallway of their home, joining accolades earned by her children over time. Eaton wasn’t the only Rowan-Salisbury student to place in the state contest. Maria Delgado-Tinajero, a student at Southeast Middle, claimed second place in the sixth- through eight- grade division and Christian Lemly, a sixth-grader at West Rowan Middle, took home third place for third-through fifth-grade division. Lemly created her poster while attending Cleveland Elementary.
Posters had to include the slogan “Be Aware — Know the Danger Zone,”which emphasizes the importance of safety when crossing the street, and getting on and off the bus while staying in view of the bus driver. The danger zone is the area within 10 feet of the bus. Submissions were judged based on relationship design to school bus safety practices, originality, artwork and execution and visual impact of the design. Contact Sarah Campbell at 704797-7683.

The Salisbury Police Department is gearing up for the Eighth Annual Gerry Wood Bicycle Event. Applications for the program are due by Friday. Since 2002, Salisbury Police officers have donated their time and energy to provide happiness to underprivileged children in the city of Salisbury. This year 115 bicycles and helmets will be distributed along with 85 teddy bears and thousands of candy canes. The Salisbury Police Department volunteers will be out in force on Dec. 22 and with help from Gerry Wood, those involved will make Christmas come early for hundreds of children throughout the city. Gerry Wood Auto Group and former Police Chief Mark Wilhelm began the program to help at-risk children interact with officers in a positive light. This yearly event gives police officers and Gerry Wood employees a chance to brighten a child’s Christmas. Some of the children receiving the bikes have younger siblings at home and they each receive a teddy bear. When neighborhood children gather to watch the police cruisers and other vehicles deliver the bikes they are given bags of candy canes. A special thanks goes out to Walmart for a large donation toward the price of the helmets. Applications are available at the Salisbury Police Department, 130 E. Liberty St., and must be turned in by Friday. Fore more information, call the department at 704-6385333.
Lavender plants stolen from yard BY SHELLEY SMITH
Ban on sweepstakes games set to proceed Traffic “There is a lot of ambicrackdown guity still in the marketplace and that needs to yields charges be addressed.” CHASE BROOKS Internet-Based Sweepstakes Organization
not gambling. Consumers who visit sweepstakes parlors or convenience stores buy a product that gives them the opportunity to uncover potential cash and prizes with a few mouse clicks on a computer screen that resembles a casinostyle game. Retailers or standalone parlors make the payouts. Opponents argue players waste their money and get addicted to the experience. Ridgeway also lifted an injunction preventing state agents and police from seizing the machines under a 2008 law designed to close a loophole in the 2007 ban of traditional video poker machines. But Guilford County Superior Court Judge John Craig said last week a portion of the sweepstakes ban was too broad and violates free-
speech protections in the First Amendment. He suggested games specifically identified and designed to look like video poker, craps, keno or other games were subject to the Dec. 1 ban, but others designed to be nabbed in a catchall provision might not be. Chase Brooks, president of the Internet-Based Sweepstakes Organization, which represents video and Internet-based sweepstakes operators, focused on Craig’s decision. The group wants the General Assembly and Gov. Beverly Perdue to legalize video poker machines again and regulate them, reaping hundreds of millions of dollars for the state. Some operators argue they’ll find technical ways to get around the new law. “There is a lot of ambiguity still in the marketplace and that needs to be addressed. Many Internet sweepstakes owners believe they will continue to be operational and continuing business on Dec. 1,” said Brooks, who runs sweepstakes parlors. Sen. Josh Stein, D-Wake, who shepherded the ban through the Senate this year, praised Ridge-
Fifty potted lavender plants were stolen from the backyard of a home on East Liberty Street over the weekend. Wayne Allen said he found two plants dropped in his driveway Friday evening, as if someone had hastily left not long ago. “I think they thought they were something else,” Allen said, implying the thieves may have been looking for some other plant with mood-altering abilities. “Unless you’ve got a market for lavender and got connections, they’re pretty much useless. “They really stole a dead duck so to speak.” The plants, valued at $200, bloom once a year. They were a gift for his wife, who was going to plant them in the yard. “It’s only once a year you’ve got any good out of them anyway,” he said, but it took about a year of grooming. He still has about 40 plants left. He also fenced in his yard on Saturday. Other crimes reported to the Salisbury Police Depart-

A multi-agency traffic enforcement project last Tuesday yielded 127 violations, Salisbury Police Chief Rory Collins said. Collins said the project was part of the Governor’s Highway Safety campaign, “No Need 2 Speed,” and involved the N.C. State Highway Patrol, Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, China Grove, Landis and Rockwell police departments. The following charges resulted from last week’s joint efforts: • 88 speeding violations. • Four charges of driving while license revoked. • Three charges of driving without a license. • Sixteen charges of expired registrations. • Nine expired-inspection violations. • Three seat-belt violations. • Two equipment violations. • One charge of failing to notify the DMV of an address change. Collins said the goal of the project was to “slow drivers down in order to help save lives and to protect the motoring public.”
RALEIGH (AP) — Two trial court rulings have left a ban on electronic and computer-based sweepstakes machines in North Carolina largely intact, meaning games that have the look and feel of video poker and other casino games will have to be unplugged by Wednesday. Some operators of sweepstakes parlors, however, say one ruling left the door slightly ajar for them to continue offering a version of the games, and legal appeals may be ahead. It wasn’t immediately clear how the law, one of nearly a dozen taking effect Dec. 1, will be enforced. On Monday, Wake County Superior Court Judge Paul Ridgeway dismissed a lawsuit filed by an amusement machine company and upheld a law passed by the General Assembly in July designed to eliminate video and Internet-based sweepstakes games. Lawmakers argued the games were illegal gambling even though customers buy Internet or phone time or office services first before playing games on a computer that reveals potential prizes on a monitor. Sweepstakes machine operators argue the games are entertainment,
Officials urge residents to plan for winter This week is Winter Weather Preparedness Week in North Carolina, and Rowan County Emergency Services is reminding residents, businesses and schools to prepare now to stay safe and warm if debilitating winter storms strike. “We’ve had a very warm and pleasant fall, but we know it may not last,” N.C. Crime Control and Public Safety Secretary Reuben Young said. “Many parts of our states saw several snowfalls last year and our mountains and foothills were especially hard hit in December and January.” Jeff Orrock, warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said the forecasts are calling for a drier than normal winter due to La Nina. But he cautions that a big storm or two is not out of the question. The record heavy snow that struck much of the state in January 2000 occurred during a La Nina cycle. La Nina cycles can also mean an increase in freezing rain and wintry mixes due to the warmer temperatures. Rowan Emergency Services says Rowan residents should monitor changing weather conditions and storm watches or warnings, which are available through NOAA Weather Radio as well as local radio and television stations. When winter weather warnings are issued, the public should be prepared for possible power outages or roads made impassable by snow or ice. Residents are encouraged to practice the following winter safety tips: • Keep alternative heating sources prepared. If you have a fireplace, store a good supply of dry, seasoned wood. Keep fire extinguishers on hand, and make sure your family knows how to use them. • Properly vent kerosene heaters and keep any electric generators outside and away from any open windows or doors to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Also, do not burn charcoal indoors. Carbon monoxide poisoning can result from charcoal fumes indoors. • Keep fresh batteries on
hand to use with flashlights and weather radios. • Always keep at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food in your home. • Wear multiple layers of thin clothing instead of a single layer of thick clothing to stay warm. You will be warmer and, as the temperature changes, you can easily remove layers to remain comfortable. • If you must travel during a winter storm, store an emergency kit in your vehicle that includes: blankets; a batterypowered radio with extra batteries; a first-aid kit; a flashlight with extra batteries; battery booster cables and flares; a tire repair kit and pump; a road map; a sack of cat litter (for tire traction); a tow rope; bottled water and non-perishable high-energy foods such as granola bars; extra clothing to keep dry; and a windshield scraper and brush. • If driving on snow- or ice-covered roadways, reduce your speed. Driving at the regular speed limit will reduce your ability to control the car if you begin to slide. Leave plenty of room between you and other vehicles. • If conditions worsen and you can no longer drive safely, pull off the highway. Stay calm and remain in your vehicle. Do not set out on foot unless you can see a building close by where you know you can take shelter. Caution should always be exercised during significant winter weather events, since most deaths attributed to winter storms result from indirect dangers such as traffic accidents, falling trees, downed power lines, house fires and carbon monoxide poisoning resulting from improper use of space heaters, grills and stoves. Rowan County's public safety agencies work closely with local Emergency Management, and the National Weather Service to provide citizens with up-to-date and accurate weather and safety information to help citizens take the proper measures to protect themselves and their loved ones from the effects of dangerous winter storms.

Airport board meeting set for Thursday The Rowan County Airport Advisory Board will meet at 3:30 p.m. Thursday. The meeting will be held in the Airport Conference Room of the Rowan County Airport, 3670 Airport Loop Road in Salisbury.
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss proposals for basic provisions included in standard ground leases and hangar documents, as well as any other matters that may come before the board.
though repeat offenders could face felonies and prison time. Lawyers representing the state said Monday in court the law doesn’t apply to arcade games and marketing games by retailers that require the consumer to type in a code at a company’s website because they don’t fit the definition for electronic sweepstakes games. Other laws taking effect Wednesday will: • Beef up penalties for someone convicted of torturing, starving or killing an animal by giving the judge the option of sentencing the offender to up to eight months behind bars. Susie’s Law was named for an 8-week-old puppy burned, beaten and left for dead by her owner. • Allow authorities to penalize car owners up to $100 if their license plate frame or cover makes reading identifying information on the plate illegible. • End an extra $1 fee that owners of nearly a million cars pay annually to renew their annual vehicle registration by mail. • Make it a felony for a person named in a domestic violence court order to trespass at a safe house or shelter. • Make it a felony, up from a misdemeanor, to give $10,000 or more in illegal campaign contributions in a single election.
FROM 3a way’s ruling and said hundreds of outlets statewide better stop offering the games come Wednesday or face criminal sanctions. “The Legislature spoke loudly and clear that North Carolina does not tolerate Internet sweepstakes casinos,” Stein said. “What these casinos offer is a form of video poker.” Richard Frye, owner of Sandhill Amusements, which sued in Wake County court, sets up sweepstakes machines in convenience stores and bars as a way to market sales of long-distance phone cards. He said Monday he expects to file an appeal but for now is preparing to turn off his machines by Wednesday’s deadline. “The rest of this day and tomorrow my crew will be shutting down our route,” he said. Noelle Talley, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Roy Cooper, said state attorneys had yet to receive Craig’s ruling in writing and couldn’t say how the state would advise local and state officers on enforcing the law. Cooper has supported the sweepstakes ban, Talley said. The measure now would make it a misdemeanor for anyone to operate a game, al-

Woman injured by knife during fight
A Salisbury teen pulled a knife on her boyfriend early Sunday, but ended up stabbing herself, police said Monday. Officers responded to 209 E. Bank St., Apt. 2, about 1: 40 a.m. and found Zuleika Ramseur, 18, injured. Ramseur’s boyfriend, Deante Lamont Banks, 18, told police Ramseur rushed at him with a knife after the two had been arguing all day. Ramseur tried to stab Banks, but as Banks was defending himself and trying to get control of the knife Ramseur was stabbed, police said. Ramseur was treated at Rowan Regional Medical Center, but her injuries are unknown. Banks did not press charges, and Ramseur has since been released from the hospital, police said.

A woman was arrested after she threw a liquor bottle at a neighbor’s child Friday afternoon, authorities said. Maggie Elizabeth Clinding of 1113 Crosby St. was charged with misdemeanor assault on a child or minor and released on a promise to appear in court. Police said she was arrested about 5 p.m. on a warrant. Deputy Police Chief Steve Whitley said the warrant was likely a private warrant, which appeared to be taken out by the parent of the child. The child was under the age of 12. No serious injuries were noted in the report.
Earlier this month, the state’s high court granted West a temporary stay so that the Davidson County Chancery Court could consider his lawsuit claiming prisoners executed by lethal injection experience unconstitutionally severe pain. The lawsuit claimed the first drug in the three-drug injection protocol does not adequately anesthetize prisoners, violating the constitutional ban on cruel and unusual pun-

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Supreme Court on Monday halted the executions of four death row inmates to allow a trial court to examine the constitutionality of the state’s new lethal injection procedure.

Leaks prompt new security measures, threats of prosecutions tist, wounding another and wounding each of their wives, who were in the cars, Tehran’s police chief said. At least two other Iranian nuclear scientists have been killed in recent years, one of them in an attack similar to Monday’s. The wounded scientist, Fereidoun Abbasi, is on a list of figures suspected of links to secret nuclear activities in a 2007 U.N. sanctions resolution, which puts a travel ban and asset freeze on those listed. The resolution describes him as a Defense Ministry scientist who works closely with Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, believed to head secret nuclear projects.

mission Monday, underscoring one of the risks in a U.S.led program to educate enough recruits to turn over the lead for security to Afghan forces by 2014. The shooting in a remote area near the Pakistani border appeared to be the deadliest attack of its kind in at least two years. Attacks on NATO troops by Afghan policemen or soldiers, although still rare, have increased as the coalition has accelerated the program. Other problems with the rapidly growing security forces include drug use, widespread illiteracy and high rates of attrition. The Taliban claimed responsibility, saying the gunman joined the border police to kill foreign soldiers.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Striking back, the Obama administration branded the leak of more than a quarter-million classified files an attack on the United States Monday and raised the prospect of criminal prosecution against the online site WikiLeaks. The Pentagon detailed new security safeguards, including restraints on small computer flash drives, to make it harder for any one person to copy and reveal so many secrets. The young Army Pfc. suspected of stealing the diplomatic memos and feeding them to WikiLeaks may have defeated Pentagon security systems using little more than a Lady Gaga CD and a portable computer memory stick. The soldier, Bradley Manning has not been charged in the latest release of internal U.S. government documents, but officials said he is the prime suspect partly because of his own description of how he pulled off a staggering heist of classified and restricted material. “No one suspected a thing,” Manning told a confidant afterward, according to a log of his computer chat published by Wired.com. “I didn’t even have to hide anything.” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton asserted Monday that WikiLeaks acted illegally in posting the material. She said the administration was taking “aggressive steps to hold responsible those who stole this information.”

Canceling Hudson tunnel costs NJ
states have defected to Republican ranks since the Nov. 2 election, adding to already huge GOP gains in state legislatures. And that number could grow as next year’s legislative sessions draw near. The defections underscore dissatisfaction with the Democratic Party — particularly in the South — and will give Republicans a stronger hand in everything from pushing a conservative fiscal and social agenda to redrawing political maps.
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey owes the federal government more than $271 million after canceling a rail tunnel connecting the state with New York, according to a debt notice obtained Monday by The Associated Press. The letter from the Federal Transit Administration’s chief financial officer to NJ Transit’s executive director demands payment of $271,101,291 by Dec. 24.
It’s money the government wants New Jersey to repay for work done on the Hudson River tunnel before Republican Gov. Chris Christie terminated the project. “FTA demands payment in full within 30 days from the date of this letter, hereinafter referred to as the ‘delinquency date,’” the letter states. The letter was dated Nov. 24. NJ Transit Executive Director Jim Weinstein said earlier this month that the state hadn’t determined if it would have to pay any money back.

Iran blames Israel and the West after bomb attacks kill scientist TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s president accused Israel and the West of being behind a pair of daring bomb attacks that killed one nuclear scientist and wounded another in their cars on the streets of Tehran on Monday. He also admitted for the first time that a computer worm had affected centrifuges in Iran’s uranium enrichment program. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other Iranian officials vowed that the nuclear program would not be hampered by what they described as a campaign to sabotage it — whether by assassination or by the computer virus. The United States and its allies say Iran is seeking to build a nuclear bomb, a claim Tehran denies. The two bomb attacks occurred when assailants on motorcycles attached magnetized bombs to the cars of two nuclear scientists as they drove to work in separate parts of the capital Monday morning. They detonated seconds later, killing one scien-

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Monday proposed a two-year freeze of the salaries of some 2 million federal workers, trying to seize the deficit-cutting initiative from Republicans with a sudden, dramatic stroke. Though signaling White House concern over record deficits, the freeze would make only a tiny dent in annual deficits or the nation’s $14 trillion debt. “Small businesses and families are tightening their belts,” Obama said in brief remarks at the White House. “The government should, too.” The administration said the plan was designed to save more than $5 billion over the first two years. The proposal, which must be approved by Congress, would not apply to the military, but it would affect all others on the Executive Branch payroll. It would not affect members of Congress or their staffs, defense contractors, postal workers or federal court judges and workers. Obama’s move was an attempt to get in front of Republican plans to slash federal pay and the workforce next year, when they will flex more legislative muscle than now. It came a day ahead of Obama’s meeting at the White House with both Republicans and Democratic leaders — his first with Republicans since the midterm elections — and two days before the deadline for recommendations by his deficit-reduction commission.

Fishin’ with Capt. Gus
Hunting pressure and big bucks Learning more about how and why a deer reacts to hunting pressure will help hunters bag bucks more effectively. As Dr. Keith Causey, retired professor of wildlife science at Auburn University, explains, “Deer learn to fear man just like any other animal learns to fear man. Man’s been a predator, and deer have been a prey species for thousands of years. The deer that don’t fear man have been weeded-out of the population. Fear by prey of a predator comes from experience and from being taught by the more mature members of the population.” Dr. Robert Sheppard, a master bowhunter who teaches in bowhunting and blackpowder schools, also is a cardiologist who must pay close attention to even the smallest detail when practicing medicine. This trait of his also applies to his deer hunting. “Most hunters believe deer learn to flee from hunters when the animals see men, and that deer associate sighting a man with the knowledge that man is a predator,” Dr. Sheppard reports. “However, I tend to believe deer learn to fear first the odor man gives off. Then at some time during the deer’s development, the animal associates that odor with a visual sighting of man. As you walk through the woods, your body produces odor that smells much stronger to the deer than to you. I’m convinced deer recognize that human odor as a dangerous smell and do all they can to avoid it.” Brad Harris, videographer and well-known deer authority, says, “In the woods, deer are aware of all the sights, the smells and the sounds of the forest. When man comes into the forest, man presents an unfamiliar sight, sound and smell. Because the deer’s natural instincts teach him to avoid anything not native to his environment, this may explain how deer learn to dodge hunters.” Also, we know from biologists spending thousands of

Tips you can use with the pros in tournaments
Deer start sensing trouble from humans from a young age. hours watching deer in the wild that a tremendous amount of information is transferred from the doe to the fawn during that first year of life. If you’ve watched young fawns with a doe, she’ll communicate danger, caution, fear and calmness to her offspring. Bob Foulkrod, a professional hunter and guide, suggests that, “Deer learn to run from man almost immediately after they’re born, because their mothers teach them to flee from that potential danger.” According to Dr. Causey, “Scientists have observed that fawns initially use a strategy of freezing to hide from danger until they reach 5- to 7-days old. After that time, they flee from man or any other predator or animal that approaches them.” Dr. Sheppard says fawns fear man, particularly in the South, because, “Bow season starts early in the fall, often from mid-August to mid-October. In most of the areas where hunting pressure is heavy, by the time gun season arrives in November, many of the fawns, even those still with spots, have had enough encounters with human odor
in the company of their mothers to recognize the smell as a danger signal. They’ve learned from their mothers while walking through the woods and seeing their mothers’ reactions when they encounter human smell. The doe will jerk her head up, snort and run off when she and the fawn smell humans. The next time the fawns encounter the smell, they know it means danger.” Many hunters believe the more a deer sees or smells humans, the less likely that animal is to appear in the woods during daylight hours. However, Foulkrod believes the intent of the human determines the fear factor of the buck. “If a buck’s in a nonpressure situation where he sees hikers, blueberry pickers or photographers during the summer months, he may run on first sighting the human before turning to see if he’s being pursued,” Foulkrod mentions. “When he realizes he isn’t being chased or shot at, he can take a lot of human pressure. But after hunting season opens, and the bucks realize that every time they come in contact with humans, they’ll be pursued. … He’ll cease his daytime activities.”
Every angler dreams of participating in a fishing tournament, and it’s not as difficult to participate as you might think. Sometimes, the only requirement is to pay the entry fee and fish from the back seat of someone else’s boat. Winning is different. That involves lots of skill, knowledge, practice and of course, just plain luck. If you’re interested in fishing a bass, crappie, striper or catfish tournament, the following tips could help put you on the leader board. • Join a fishing club. Not only will you learn a lot about tournament fishing, but most clubs have scheduled events that allow you to hone your skills. • Begin tournament fishing on a familiar body of water and partner with someone who has competition experience. • Study and understand the tournament rules. • If the tournament is out of town, reserve lodging with access to electrical connections to charge boat batteries. Also, consider a place in close proximity to the official tournament launch site. • Assure that the boat, motor, trailer, electronics, rods, reels and tackle are in tiptop condition. • If live or cut baits are permitted, catch or purchase before the tournament begins. Don’t wait until the last minute. Sometimes getting bait is harder than catching fish. • Tournament day can be very tiring, so get plenty of rest the night before and eat a big breakfast. • Arrive at the boat ramp early enough to allow ample time for launching. • Have as many rods onboard as tournament rules allow, and have them rigged and ready to fish. Remember, it’s faster to switch from rod to rod than it is to tie and re-tie lures over and over again throughout the day. • Use maps, charts, practice rounds and information from tackle shop owners, guides, media and local anglers to learn about the water you will be fishing. • Pre-fish to find patterns that will produce a winning stringer on tournament day. • Develop a primary and secondary tournament day game plan. Example: Fish shallow banks early, deep points at mid-day and boat docks the last two hours. • Adjust to conditions, but remember that the fish you found during the practice rounds might still be in the same general area. • Keep a cool demeanor, particularly if the bite is slow. Don’t fish faster than normal just because you’re fishing in a tournament. For conservation reasons, the majority of bass, catfish and striper tournaments require that the fish be brought to the weigh-

Be on time for the weigh-in. Tardiness can result in disqualification or a loss of points. Fishermen tend to tell more about how and where they caught fish at the end of the tournament. Hang around and listen to what they are saying. You might hear some tidbits that will help you place higher the next time. Win, lose or draw — enjoy the tournament experience and learn from it. Just because the water temperature is cooling down, don’t overlook fishing for catfish. Channel, blues and flatheads will bite throughout the fall and winter months. The key is to use small baits and fish slowly. Upcoming Events: Free Safe Boating Class – “How to Navigate Lake Norman Day or Night” will be held at North Point Watersports Exit 36, Mooresville, on Thursday from 6:30- 8 p.m. Topics will include, “Understanding LKN’s Channel Marker and Buoy System,” “Identifying and Learning How to Avoid the Ten Most Dangerous Spots” and “Interpreting Lake Maps.” For more information call Capt. Gus: 704-617-6812 or e-mail Gus@LakeNoman.com. Hot spots: Perch and catfish are biting in most major creek runs on either side of the Highway 150 Bridge. Striper fishing is still fair. The best bet is spotted bass, they are being caught on live and artificials at the lower end of Lake Norman. The lake level is 95.9 or 4.1 feet below full pond. The water surface temperature is in the 50s and 60s depending on location.

Outdoors roundup: Conservation groups focused on off-road vehicles at Cape Hatteras After a record-breaking year for wildlife at Cape Hatteras National Seashore and visitor occupancy in Dare County, conservation groups are studying the Final Environmental Impact Statement released by the National Park Service. It is part of the process of establishing rules for managing beach driving within the seashore. Officials with the Southern Environmental Law Center say the preferred alternative falls short of the U.S. Department of Interior’s own scientists’ recommendations regarding the measures needed to protect wildlife within the national park.
As a unit of the National Park System, Cape Hatteras has been required for decades under federal law to establish guidelines for the use of off-road vehicles in the seashore to minimize harm to the natural resources of the seashore in accordance with the best available science. “The park service’s final rules must provide adequate vehicle-free space and protections for both pedestrians and wildlife, while still allowing responsible beach driving in some areas,” said Julie Youngman, senior attorney, Southern Environmental Law Center. “We look
forward to working with the park service to build on the success of this record-breaking year.” The park service’s preferred plan allows vehicle use on the majority of the seashore. Twenty-eight of the seashore’s 67 miles are set aside as year-round routes, with only 26 miles designated as year-round vehicle-free areas for pedestrians, families, and wildlife. The remaining 13 miles of seashore are seasonally open. The plan also proposes new parking facilities, ramps and water shuttles to increase visitor access. “As demonstrated by record
numbers of visitors and wildlife this year, it is entirely possible for Cape Hatteras to be responsibly shared and enjoyed,” said Jason Rylander, attorney for Defenders of Wildlife. “We hope the park service’s final plan will strike an appropriate balance that meets the needs of the Seashore’s many users.” ••• The Safe Haven Equine Rescue & Retirement nonprofit organization’s Holiday Bonfire & Chili Dinner fundraiser, will be Saturday from 5:30–8:30 p.m. hosted by Anderson
Farms, 309 Craven Drive (off Jacobs Streeet ext.) in Thomasville. Safe Haven Equine Rescue & Retirement (SHERR) helps abused and neglected horses in the Triad and surrounding areas.

Dale Hawkins with Sandy Hollar Tree Farm says heâ€™s slashed prices to do whatever he could do to sell 500 or 1,000 trees. Hawkins says many of his wholesalers are selling 6- to 8-foot trees instead of 8- and 10-foot trees. Hawkins says sales of larger trees are down almost 50 percent from last year.

MASTER PLAN DISCUSSION
Preservation on the table Easley, Hunt and TR istoric preservation can provoke intense passions and debate in Salisbury, with the fate of old buildings, old bridges and other local landmarks often hanging in the balance. If you could shape the city’s historic preservation efforts, what would you do differently? Where would you channel future preservation efforts and resources to help maintain and enhance Salisbury’s reputation as a city that dotes on history and its treasures? How would you balance preservation with the city’s need to grow and expand its business base, protect the property rights and interests of individual institutions and promote a vibrant community? This is your chance to weigh in on such questions as the city works on its Historic Preservation Master Plan. A public discussion of the plan will be held this evening, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Rowan Museum, 202 N. Main St. The meeting will provide an overview of the city’s preservation efforts, along with a summary of how the master plan will work. Those with a passion for historic preservation no doubt have long had this meeting on their calendar. But for the city’s plan to be fully effective, it needs to reflect the perspectives of others in the community as well. This is your chance to have a voice in the preservation process, and those working on the master plan are eager to hear what you have to say.
Those pesky reporters Before we close the book on the Mike Easley saga, let’s take a moment to remember how the story began. Nosy journalists were the first to ask questions about the former governor’s land deals and campaign flights. U.S. Attorney George Holding, the federal prosecutor in the case, acknowledged as much in Monday’s online edition of Carolina Journal, published by the John Locke Foundation. “The case (against Easley) began after credible allegations of misconduct were presented in the news media,” Holding said. “Without investigative journalists here in the capital, much misconduct would not have come to light.” The CJ article includes a timeline of Easley investigative stories published by itself, the News & Observer of Raleigh and the Charlotte Observer, beginning in 2006. Those articles were accompanied by a drumbeat of editorials in N.C. newspapers, including the Salisbury Post. As others have noted, the Easley case has revealed lingering loopholes in the state’s ethics laws. It also affirms the enduring value of a vigorous, watchdog press that stubbornly seeks answers and digs for the facts, without fear or favor.
(Or uncommon wisdom, as the case may be)
Even if you're on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there. — Will Rogers
hen Governor Perdue asked state agencies to prepare budgets reflecting 5, 10 and 15 percent reductions from current spending, we were hopeful agency leaders would make good faith efforts to comply. The response to date has been disappointing in many instances, ranging from outright refusal to TOM CAMPBELL gamesmanship. We are weary of threats we will have to close a statesupported university, lay off thousands of teachers, shut down programs and deny thousands of children the care they need. Yes, there is the real likelihood people will lose jobs and programs will be eliminated, but those projecting worst case, doomsday scenarios often do so in anticipation that interest groups, employees or constituents will be sufficiently frightened as to flood leaders with demands their pet program be spared. We assume those making these claims are well intentioned, but they are serving neither their constituents nor the public well. This is no time for budget games. It is a time for our leaders and our citizens to face the reality of 2011. We are still suffering from The Great Recession, and all economic projections indicate our state is unlikely to rebound strongly next year. Without the federal bailout and revenues from the expiration of the temporary sales and income tax increases, our state budget for the fiscal year starting July 1 will be at least $3.2 billion from being balanced. Our new legislative leadership has made no secret they plan to balance the budget by cutting spending instead of raising taxes, resulting in a 15 percent reduction from current spending levels. Governor Perdue has correctly asked those who run agencies and who know their programs best to provide their good-faith efforts in establishing spending and service priorities. It is unrealistic to expect parttime legislators to be intimately familiar with every agency’s programs and their effectiveness. When elected or appointed leaders refuse to seriously participate in budget reductions or prioritization of services, the resultant action is often across-the-board budget cuts, a terrible choice that assumes every program has the same level of priority. A case can be made that our state budget has grown too large over the past two decades and is long overdue an overhaul. Many are not excited about facing such a monumental budget cut. If tax increases are off the table, we have but two choices: either view our current situation as doom and gloom or recognize it as an opportunity to reestablish the mission and priorities for our state. We hope our leaders choose the latter option, recognizing the need for cooperation and measured decision making. We further hope one of those decisions will be to institute zerobased budgeting so that North Carolina will not continue to face these boom and bust budget cycles. Leaders do not often have the luxury of choosing the times in which they serve. They do, however choose the course they will take in those times. Opting out and refusing to participate is not the course of a true leader. Neither is the demagoguery of exaggerated threats of beloved programs. Now is the time for statesmanship not gamesmanship. • • • Tom Campbell moderates the talk show “NC Spin” and is a former assistant treasurer for North Carolina.

A ‘relaxed pace’ vs. two energetic agendas he sad resolution of the Mike Easley affair last week provoked a debate about the penalty (a $1,000 fine and a felony conviction). Was it a mere “slap on the wrist”? Or was it much too severe punishment for his campaign staff omitting to report the value of air transportation? The conclusion of the D.G. criminal invesMARTIN tigation is a stark reminder of the real tragedy of the Easley governorship: Easley’s failure to put the full measure of his great charm and popularity to work for the people who twice elected him their governor. Easley recruited good people to work in his administration and, by and large, they performed well. But he resisted all calls to take an active and vigorous role in developing and promoting an agenda to make his state better. In this regard he suffers in comparison to his predecessor, Jim Hunt, whose work ethic and audacious generation of ideas are legendary. It must have been painful for Hunt to keep silent while his successor relaxed the fast pace he had made the standard for a North Carolina governor. Ironically, during the same week that the Easley criminal case concluded, a new book about Theodore Roosevelt
showed another contrast between a vigorous leader and the laid back style of a successor. “Colonel Roosevelt” is the third and final volume of Edmund Morris’ biography. The first, “The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt,” won the Pulitzer Prize. “Theodore Rex” covers the White House years. The new book follows Roosevelt from the end of his presidency in early 1909 until his death in 1919. Legendary are Roosevelt’s ambition and active life leading up to his presidency, the charge at San Juan Hill for instance. So is his whirlwind time in office, Panama Canal, trust-busting, and protection of the nation’s natural areas. Freed from the day-to-day responsibilities of office, his post-presidency activities were also amazing. Two months after his chosen successor, William Howard Taft, took office, Roosevelt went to Kenya on safari, tracking, killing, and almost being killed by Africa’s largest animals. He wrote it all up for publication under a lucrative contract with a prominent publishing house. It would be just one of his more than 40 published books. On the way back home, he stopped in Khartoum, Cairo, Paris, Vienna, Rome, Brussels, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Berlin, and London. Kings, emperors, parliamentarians, scientists, and academicians sought his advice and support. When Roosevelt returned in June 1910, he came to believe that President Taft had lost
LETTERS Recycled trees add glitter in Spencer The Spencer Hometown Holidays committee would like to thank those who donated their unwanted artificial Christmas trees. We recycled them and really put them to good use. With the help of many volunteers, they have now been refashioned into Christmas kissing balls and are hanging along Salisbury Avenue.

his way, playing golf most days and abandoning Roosevelt’s progressive programs. If Jim Hunt was disappointed with Mike Easley’s low-key approach to governance, he kept it to himself and focused his boundless energy on the promotion of initiatives that did not confront his successor. But Roosevelt could not hold back his criticism. His ultimate break with Taft led to an effort to win a third term, first competing unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination in 1912. Failing that, he secured the nomination of the Progressive or “Bull Moose” Party, ultimately losing to Woodrow Wilson, but gaining more votes than Taft. After a season of exploration on an uncharted river in Brazil nearly killed him, Roosevelt returned home in 1914. He launched a series of attacks on President Wilson’s cautious response to the First World War and volunteered to raise and lead a division of volunteers to fight wherever needed. By maintaining a vigorous and financially rewarding program of writing and making speeches across the country, Roosevelt remained a possible “next president” until his death. As Edmund Morris vividly explains in “Colonel Roosevelt,” the life of a former president can be just as challenging, complex, and interesting as the time in office. • • • D.G.

Third, and most importantly, Republicans need to remember what it is like to be in the minority. The wild electoral swings from 2008 to 2010 are evidence that the days of 100year control by any political party are over. The way they treat the minority party today could spark a change that could prove useful sometime down the road. Voters tend to reward those who live up to their campaign promises. While we might never again see any one party in charge for a century, by living up to their pledges to fix the process, the Republicans might be around for quite some time.

Everday Cheapskate: Cheap groceries need simple dinner plans
MH: What steps should super savers take to do better? JD: Here are a few practical suggestions: Monitor portion control. If I donâ€™t hide all those free bags of chips I â€œpurchasedâ€? at the grocery, my family will just inhale them. Itâ€™s a rule of thumb: If you have more, you eat more. Apply the luxury vs. necessity rule. When I was
growing up, my mother did not buy snack foods at all. She knew the bottom line, that snacks were not absolutely necessary and therefore were a luxury. She freed up a lot of money that way. Donâ€™t overspend on bargains. Once you enter the coupon-saving universe, it is very tempting to want to seize every deal. Set a budget, and choose your powerbuying wisely. Reinvest your hard-earned
grocery savings strategically. Use your grocery savings as a way to get out of debt and as a personal wealth-building tool. MH: How can E-mealz help super savers do even better? JD: E-mealz provides a simple online meal-planning system based around my own frugal organization structure. We scour the weekâ€™s sale items in your supermarket and provide delicious recipes

Anyone who shops for groceries knows that prices have risen significantly over the past year. And if youâ€™ve been paying attention, you also have noticed stores and manufacturers offering more sales and coupons. The winners are the â€œ s u p e r savers,â€? the shopping experts who know how to combine sales with coupons. When they find bargains, they buy exMARY tra to last unHUNT til the next sale. Recently, I sat down with Jane DeLaney, co-founder of E-mealz, to chat about the super-saver phenomenon that is emerging from the bad economy. Mary Hunt: Super savers know how to get groceries cheaply. They even build stockpiles of food so they donâ€™t have to pay full price. But are they really spending the least they could to feed their families nutritious meals? Jane DeLaney: Super savers are at the top of their game, for sure! But most do not create consistent menu plans. Their cupboards are stocked full of products they have acquired for next to nothing, but they are still plagued with â€œthe 5 oâ€™clock stare.â€? Though beating the grocery system is key to saving money, it still needs to translate into family dinner. Without a simple dinner plan, food may be available to eat, but thereâ€™s nothing on the table. E-mealz provides the simple dinner plans every super saver needs!

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) â€” Wartime rape victims in Bosnia say they will complain to the U.N. refugee agency about its goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie who has not yet clarified rumors surrounding her movie that have infuriated the women. Wartime rape victims were outraged when they heard rumors that Jolieâ€™s directorial debut was about a victim in a rape camp falling in love with her rapist. Jolieâ€™s producer denied the rumors. Bakira Hasecic, the head of the association Women Victims of War, says she will send a letter to the UNHCR, according to an interview published in daily newspaper Dnevni Avaz on Monday. Jolie had promised a meeting with the women in November and invited them to shooting in Budapest but Hasecic said Jolie should come to Bosnia and meet the women there.

crete residence. “There were wrap-around windows at the corner, and a large eat-in kitchen.” Shinn was a man of faith whose actions spoke louder than his words, although much of the good he did was behind the scenes. According to Doby, he delivered 1,000 babies during his career and made numerous house calls, whether or not a patient could afford to pay his bill. “He was trustworthy,” reminisces Doby, who still lives down the street from his house, “and didn’t care for the spotlight. And he represented the best of China Grove: giving and receiving.” Shinn’s home also housed his office. There was one examining room; a patient often spent a good deal of his or her appointment sitting there fully clothed and talking to the doctor, who was an excellent listener and diagnostician. After the Shinns moved out, the house sat empty for several years. Moose, who was then a banker, would drive by and wonder about the physician who delivered her mother-inlaw, Dolly Moose, and the home he built. Eventually, the house came on the market, first as a residence, and then as commercial property. One of Shinns’ sons had a yard sale, and Mary stopped to ask if anyone knew about the house. The son offered to give her a personal tour, and “it was love at first sight,” Mary said. “I negotiated, and the rest is history.” It took Moose and a crew of workers six months to turn the abandoned residence into the home for her new business, Victory Wealth Management. “I tried to maintain the character of the house to be a functional working office,” Moose said. Then she wryly added, “Dr. Shinn Scotch-taped cracks in the ceiling and painted over them. The entire house — rugs, floors, everything, was blue.” As a result, “There isn’t an inch in this place, ground floor or underneath, that I haven’t touched.” A series of before-and-after photos will be available during the tour, as well as a display that includes Shinn’s medical

The Ducks received 36 firstplace votes and 1,475 points, while Auburn got 23 and 1,456 from the media panel. TCU also received a firstplace vote.

Petty to control team
See POLL, 4B
Associated Press CONCORD— Richard Petty will once again run his race team and participate in day-to-day operations as chairman of the new ownership group that was announced Monday. The assets of Richard Petty Motorsports have been sold from George Gillett Jr. to an investment group that consists of Petty, Medallion Financial Corp., and DGP Investments. “Today is a great day for me, my family, our fans and our wonderful sponsors,” Petty said in a statement that listed 10 partners that “have supported me through thick and thin and I thank them from the bottom of my heart.” RPM will field cars for AJ Allmendinger and Marcos Ambrose in 2011. The transfer of assets has been in the works for several weeks because of Gillett’s ongoing financial problems. Debt-laden English soccer club Liverpool recently was sold despite the objection of Gillett and business partner Tom Hicks. And a U.S. hedge fund is suing Gillett over what the firm says is more than $117 million in debt he racked up investing in Liverpool. Petty owned just a small take in the organization during Gillett’s two-year ownership run of RPM. The seven-time NASCAR champion seemed at times to be nothing but a figurehead, while the Gillett family ran the team. But Petty worked the final two months of the season to regain control of the team, and the new ownership group was revealed Monday. Medallion Financial is a publicly traded investment company that has Hank Aaron among its key board members. “We could not be happier to be able to acquire these assets together,” said Andrew Murstein, president of Medallion. “Richard is one of the greatest names, not only in NASCAR, but in all sports. His name and image are a world recognized brand with unlimited potential to grow and expand in racing. “Ample working capital has been invested in the company to ensure this great team and legend will not only continue to perform, but will thrive and be back in the winner’s circle.” DGB Investments is a company owned by Douglas Bergeron, the CEO of

Rowan County football is Fan-tastic Staff report
West Rowan coach Scott Young wants more fans in the stands. So does Salisbury coach Joe Pinyan. “The kids deserve it,” Young told us. Surely, the schools will see the bleachers packed this Friday when both go for a shot at a state championship berth. West is playing host to Hibriten in 3A while Salisbury is welcoming Shelby in 2AA.
They’ve both been here before. Last year, everyone was prepared for a West-Hibriten matchup in the Western final. But Hibriten was upset by Tuscola in the third round. This year, that dream matchup finally becomes a reality. Salisbury came up one foot short in a loss to Newton-Conover. A season later, we’ve come full circle. The same two teams on the same Western final stage. Football fans are now bundling up,
trying to stay warm. It doesn’t seem that long ago that Livingstone was playing a 1 p.m. game in 95-degree weather. This Friday, it will be in the 30s. • There have been some neat stories throughout the county this season. How many kickers in North Carolina were like Carson’s Caleb Lippard? He never went to the locker room with the team at halftime. Instead, he joined the band to play the trumpet, as seen
in the photo above. West’s student section always showed up, everyone wearing the same color. Salisbury’s students would come out of the stands to do the Thunder Dance. Catawba students painted their faces. There seemed to be something for everyone. And thanks to a couple of pretty good football teams at West and Salisbury, the fun isn’t over. • More Fan-tastic photos on page 3B.
Westbrook, 49ers dominate GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Brian Westbrook’s big games weren’t all in his rearview mirror after all. The 31-year-old running 49ers 27 back rushed for 136 yards Cardinals 6 and a touchdown in place of the injured Frank Gore and the San Francisco 49ers sent punchless Arizona to its sixth straight loss, 27-6 Monday night in a shower of boos from the Cardinals home crowd. Westbrook, who had 9 yards on five carries all season, ran 23 times in his 21st career 100yard game, but first since Dec. 7, 2008, for Philadelphia against the New York Giants. San Francisco (4-7), beaten at home by Tampa Bay 21-0 last week, improved to 3-1 since Troy Smith became starting quarterback and AssociAted Press pulled within a game of co-leaders St. Louis san Francisco’s Anthony dixon celebrates his touchdown on and Seattle in the anemic NFC West. Monday night against the Arizona cardinals. Arizona (3-8), two-time defending division
champion, has not lost this many in a row since dropping eight straight in 2006, Dennis Green’s final season as coach. The 49ers rushed for 261 yards, by far their season high and the most allowed by the Cardinals this season. Westbrook, who led the league in rushing in 2007, was released a year ago after eight, often-spectacular seasons with Philadelphia, a move caused by a combination of his age and injury history as well as the $7.5 million he would have been due this season. He signed with San Francisco on Aug. 16, but had hardly played at all until Gore went down on Monday. The Arizona defense provided scant resistance as San Francisco pushed around the home team at the line of scrimmage from the start. Gore injured a hip in the first quarter and briefly tried to come back before going out for good in the second period.

Bulldogs sweep East From staff reports
East Rowan’s basketball teams were beaten on Monday night at Jay M. Robinson. Robinson’s boys raced to a 26-5 lead after the first quarter, and the Mustangs (0-2) were never able to get back into it. “They were very disciplined on defense and they just pressed us relentlessly in the first quarter,” East coach Trey Ledbetter said. “They were hot. They knocked down a bunch of 3s.” HOUGH Jared Hough and Jordan Shepherd led the Mustangs with seven points each. Ethan Curlee added six. Senior guard Ross Gadd scored 20 to lead the Bulldogs (2-0), while junior guard Sean Smith had 18. “The situation is we’ve got a lot of young guys who have to get used to the speed of varsity competition,” Ledbetter said. “But there’s nothing we can do about this one now except put it behind us.” East’s girls trailed 29-20 at halftime but fell to Robinson 7041. A 3-point spree by Robinson star Kelsee Cheek extended the Bulldogs’ lead to double digits early in the second half. WIKE “We went to a diamond-and-one and slowed her her down some, but they’ve got a lot of good players and they had others start scoring,” East coach Danielle Porter said. Robinson was 21-5 last season and has five of its top players back, including Cheek, a 1,000-point scorer who has signed with Chattanooga. Cheek finished with 22 points, while defensive ace Chartea Peay had 12. The bright spot for East (0-2) definitely was freshman Karleigh Wike’s 12 points and 14 rebounds. Olivia Sabo added nine points, while Sydney Poole scored seven. “Karleigh’s play was the silver lining,” Porter said. “We’re just really young, while Robinson is very experienced.” East faces another tough assignment tonight against a pair of strong Concord teams. Girls EAST ROWAN (41) — Wike 12, Sabo 9, Poole 7, Drew 4, Honeycutt 4, B. Boling 3, Goins 2, Lowe, Rummage, Sides.

Prep basketball The prep basketball season picks up tonight with the area’s first conference doubleheader — South Stanly at North Rowan in the YVC. It will be coach Andrew Mitchell’s first game at the helm of the Cavaliers. In non-conference action, Concord is at East Rowan, South Rowan is at A.L. Brown, Robinson is at Carson, and Davie is at North Iredell.

She hit two homers in a game against Jay M. Robinson last spring. Harriss competes in cross country and is one of the Cougars’ top basketball players. She plans to enroll in the College of Education and Human Development and study athletic training at Radford. “Julie has really come into her own working hard on being a top-notch catcher and we have seen her power numbers really soar,” Radford coach Mickey Dean said in a press release. Radford has won back-to-back Big South regular season and tournament championships.

College men’s basketball Catawba’s men’s basketball team returns to the floor tonight in Charlotte with a game against Queens. Queens is 1-4, but it’s played a tough early schedule, including a loss to Division I Winthrop. The Royals lost by three points to Wingate and beat Lenoir-Rhyne by a convincing margin. Catawba, led by point guard Dominick Reid, is 2-2. The Indians lost to Livingstone and Winston-Salem State, but they beat Urbana and Pfeiffer. Catawba hasn’t played since it beat Pfeiffer on Nov. 21. Freshman Keon Moore scored 21 points in that game. Drew Absher, a freshman invited walk-on at VMI, scored 18 points in 16 minutes in a 151-92 romp against Central Pennsylvania on Monday. Absher, who starred at Davie County, was 6-for-7 from the field, including 3-for-4 on 3pointers. Brevard’s Dar- MOOSE ius Moose (Carson) scored eight points in a 76-68 win against Lees-McRae on Monday. Wingate’s Odell Turner was honored as the SAC Men’s Basketball Player of the Week. The talented sophomore’s week included a 30-point night on 11-for-12 shooting.
College women’s hoops Rashonda Mayfield (West Rowan) is averaging 13.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 3.0 steals per game for Voorhees. Mayfield hit both her 3point attempts and scored 17 points in her most recent outing against St. Andrews. De’Rya Wylie (Salisbury) had three points and two rebounds as Elizabeth City beat Saginaw Valley 65-59. Mars Hill’s Brittini Young has averaged 21.0 points a game in the Lions’ first five outings. Young, who began her prep career at East Rowan, has been on fire from the 3-point line. She’s 18-for-31. Appalachian State’s Anna Freeman (East Davidson) scored 26 points to lead the Mountaineers to a 100-67 win against Elon on Monday.

Virginia knocks off No. 15 Gophers Associated Press College basketball ... MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota rolled into Williams Arena on Monday night with a No. 15 ranking, its highest ever under coach Tubby Smith. Mustapha Farrakhan scored a career-high 23 points and Mike Scott had 17 points and 12 rebounds to lead Virginia to an 87-79 victory over the Golden Gophers on Monday night. Joe Harris scored 24 points and the Cavaliers (4-3) made 10 of 13 3-pointers to erase a 13-point first-half deficit and hand the Gophers (6-1) their first loss of the season. “I think everybody thought we’d
come in here and get blown out of the gym,” Scott said. “ It was a deflating loss for the Gophers, who beat North Carolina and West Virginia last week en route to a surprising victory at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off and could have continued their climb up the rankings with a win in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. No. 11 Baylor 90, Prairie View 45 WACO, Texas — LaceDarius Dunn hit a 3-pointer on the opening shot of the game, and 11th-ranked Baylor never trailed. Davidson 69, Monmouth 53 DAVIDSON — Brendan McKillop scored 17 points on 5-of-10 shooting from behind the arc as Davidson held off Monmouth.

LeBron melts Wizards
The NHL roundup ... NEW YORK — Sidney Crosby extended his point streak to 13 games and the Pittsburgh Penguins won their seventh straight by beating the New York Rangers 3-1 on Monday night. The Penguins, 9-0-1 in their past 10, haven’t lost since falling to the Rangers at home in overtime on Nov. 15. Their previous loss in regulation was Nov. 11 against Boston.
TRASH TALK FroM 1B TCU — which inherited Boise State’s No. 3 slot in the latest BCS rankings and finished the regular season 12-0 at New Mexico — especially if Auburn and Oregon stumble next weekend in their remaining games. Plenty of self-proclaimed experts, more than a few drawing paychecks from that very same BCS, contend that shouldn’t matter. In their eyes, a one-loss Auburn or Oregon team, or Stanford, Wisconsin, Ohio State or Arkansas for that matter, is more deserving than TCU. The Horned Frogs’ last chance to state their case
It is the Penguins’ longest winning streak since another seven-game run in October 2009. Stars 4, Hurricanes 1 RALEIGH — James Neal scored twice and Kari Lehtonen made 27 saves to lift the surging Stars over Carolina. Jamie Benn had a goal and an assist while Steve Ott had the other goal for the Stars, who have won four in a row. They’ve earned points in seven of their last eight games to move into first place in the Pa-
cific Division. It was Dallas’ second win ever in Raleigh. Oilers 4, Senators 1 OTTAWA — Andrew Cogliano and Gilbert Brule each had a goal and an assist in the third period to lead Edmonton past Ottawa. Martin Gerber made 22 saves to win for the second time in two starts for Edmonton. Tom Gilbert scored a power-play goal late in the second to draw the Oilers even at 1.
would have been running up the score Saturday against the lowly Lobos. And they wound up beating New Mexico 66-17. But that was with quarterback Andy Dalton benched in the second half after a sack left his right elbow numb. There’s no telling how many points TCU could have put up if it was trying. “We ran the ball the last quarter and a half and we didn’t throw a pass,” coach Gary Patterson said. “I’m not going to quit doing what was right. They knew I wasn’t going to quit doing what’s right for the sake of a national championship.” If only the people in charge of the BCS cartel and their hired help had the same scruples. They began piling on Boise State almost
from the moment the Broncos turned up near the top of the preseason rankings, and didn’t let up until they lost. And if either Auburn or Oregon lose next weekend — the former against South Carolina in the SEC Championship; the latter against Oregon State in the annual “Civil War” — just watch how quickly they refocus their sights on TCU. The Horned Frogs are a much easier target in some respects. Boise State boasted the pedigree of a Fiesta Bowl win last season (against TCU, no less), beat a very good Virginia Tech team in the season opener, won nine straight by double digits, and ranked in the Top 10 in more than two-thirds of the offensive and defensive
statistical gauges the NCAA tracks. TCU, on the other hand, posted its best win was against a fast-fading Utah team, wasn’t quite as dominant as the Broncos week-in and out, and struggled to beat SMU and San Diego State. For all that, the voters in the two human polls as well as the computers ranked the Horned Frogs at No. 3 this week. And if either of the two teams ahead of them — or both — lose, it’s going to be difficult to make the case that they shouldn’t move into the national championship picture. But not impossible. That’s what the BCS machinations, rationalizations and tweaks are for.
The move from the Mountain West Conference becomes official July 1, 2012. ROSES FOR WISCONSIN? Wisconsin is on the verge of its first trip to the Rose Bowl since January 2000 after the Badgers remained ahead of Ohio State and Michigan State in the latest BCS standings. Those three teams tied for the Big Ten title, and the BCS standings are used to break that deadlock. Wisconsin was No. 5 Sunday, with Ohio State one spot behind and Michigan State No. 8. MICHIGAN ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon says he’s not letting speculation about Rich Rodriguez’s future change his timetable to evaluate the football coach. He helped the Wolverines qualify for a bowl — possibly the Insight Bowl on Dec. 28 — for the first time in his three seasons. The situation swirling around Rodriguez’s status might turn into a circus at the team’s banquet Thursday night because Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh plans to be there to be honored along with his 1985 teammates.

the Mavericks stretched their winning streak to six games with a victory over the Rockets. Dallas used a 17-6 thirdquarter spurt capped by 11 straight from Butler to expand a seven-point halftime edge to 77-59. The Mavs carried an 83-71 lead into the final quarter.
caron Butler sparked the Mavs to a victory on Monday.
The college football roundup ... BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — South Carolina's Spencer Lanning, whose family has roots in Spencer, claimed the SEC’s special teams award after kicking three field goals and averaging 42.7 yards per punt against Clemson. Auburn quarterback Cam Newton is the SEC offensive player of the week for the fifth time. Newton passed for 216 yards and three touchdowns and ran for a fourth score to lead the Tigers’ come-from-behind 28-27 win over Alabama. Arkansas linebacker Jerico Nelson won defensive honors after making 11 tackles in a win over LSU, including a sack. BOWDEN ON SHANNON CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Even Bobby Bowden was surprised by Miami’s decision to fire Randy Shannon, and the legendary former Florida State coach says the Hurricanes should have given him at least one more season. Bowden tells The Associated Press that he watched a few of Miami’s games this season, noting the Hurricanes were “up and down, like teams are.” But he also said Shannon was having enough success in recruiting and with his team’s academic standing to merit a fifth season at the school. Miami fired Shannon on Saturday night, hours after the Hurricanes finished a 7-5 regular season. Shannon was 28-22 in his four seasons, without an ACC title or bowl victory. Head-to-head, Shannon won two of the three games he coached against Bowden’s Seminoles. TCU TO BIG EAST FORT WORTH, Texas — TCU is moving to the Big East Conference, where the Horned Frogs would be BCS busters no more. TCU’s board of trustees unanimously approved an invitation Monday to join the Big East in football and all other sports.
The NBA roundup ... MIAMI — LeBron James scored 30 points, Dwyane Wade added 26 and the Miami Heat pulled away steadily to beat Washington 105-94 on Monday night, keeping the Wizards winless away from home this season. Chris Bosh finished with 20 for the Heat, who won for just the second time in their past six games. James got Miami going with 20 in the first half, Wade then helped seal the win with 22 in the second half. It was the 100th regularseason win for Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, in his 182nd game. Andray Blatche scored 26 points and had nine rebounds for Washington, which is 0-8 on the road. Gilbert Arenas added 23 for Washington.
The Wizards were without No. 1 draft pick John Wall, who missed his second straight game with a bruised right knee. Thunder 95, Hornets 89 OKLAHOMA CITY — Russell Westbrook scored 12 of his 25 points during a decisive 14-0 run late in the fourth quarter and also had 11 assists as the Thunder rallied to beat the Hornets. Westbrook scored six in a row to tie the game, then kept going with a driving layup and a 3-pointer that put the Thunder up 88-81 with 1:38 to play. After the 3-pointer, he mocked slamming guns down into holsters at his side. Mavericks 101, Rockets 91 DALLAS — Caron Butler scored 13 of his 19 points during a decisive third-quarter run, Dirk Nowitzki had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and

PETTY FroM 1B VeriFone Systems, Inc. “With Richard Petty’s unmatched name and reputation in the motorsports industry, I know this investment is welltimed to succeed,” Bergeron said. It’s Petty’s second partnership with investment groups. In 2008, he gave up majority control of the team his family had run since 1949 to Boston Ventures. That move gave Boston Ventures employees the roles of chairman and CEO, while Petty was relegated to a participant in the day-to-day operations. The move was necessary because the team, then known as Petty Enterprises, had fall-
en so far behind the competition both on the track and on the business side. Medallion was believed to have been one of the investment groups interested in Petty at the time Boston Ventures completed its deal. But Boston Ventures time with the team was short-lived: Just six months later, Petty was working on a merger with Gillett’s race team. The merger at the start of 2009 was necessary to keep both Gillett-Evernham Motorsports and Petty’s team afloat after the economic collapse months earlier. Although the new team — what’s now known as RPM — returned to Victory Lane with Kasey Kahne, the financial issues were never resolved and the organization operated on a week-to-week basis the final two months of this season.

this season, but after an excruciating 34-31 overtime loss to Nevada, the Broncos tumbled out of the national championship race. Boise State blew a 24-7 halftime lead, then had a chance to win in regulation before kicker Kyle Brotzman missed a 26-yard field goal with 2 seconds left. Brotzman missed a 29-yarder in overtime and Nevada won it with a field goal of its own. The Wolf Pack moved up five places to No. 14. Nevada has only been ranked in one other season previously. The Wolf Pack reached No. 10 in 1948. Moving into the rankings were No. 23 West Virginia — in for the third time this season — along with No. 24

Northern Illinois and No. 25 Hawaii. The Huskies were last ranked in November 2003, and are the first Mid-American Conference team in the poll this season. Hawaii was last ranked in the final poll of the 2007 season. The Warriors, Wolf Pack and Broncos give the Western Athletic Conference three ranked teams for the first time since the final poll of 1994. BYU, Colorado State and Utah finished that season ranked, and all are now members of the Mountain West. Boise State is leaving the WAC for the MWC after this season, and Nevada is joining the MWC in 2012. Hawaii is also considering a jump to the Mountain West. West Virginia gives the Big East a ranked team for the first time in a month. No. 11 LSU fell five spots after losing 31-23 to Arkansas.

Muscle spasms linked to vitamin D usage Dear Dr. Gott: I read your article on severe cramping and muscle spasms. I took 1,000 IU of vitamin D with my calcium for 10 months. I was up from 10 to 20 times a night with severe, excruciating cramps. Then I ran out of vitamin D and didn’t take it for a couple of days. I had no cramps during this time. I tried a lower dose of D two more times. The cramps started immediately. I stopped the D again and am f i n a l l y cramp-free. I t ’ s strange but People DR. PETER true. should look GOTT into their meds, even if cramps and spasms aren’t listed as a side effect. Also, if I get my vitamin D naturally, why do I need a supplement to help absorb calcium? Dear Reader: That’s a great question. Calcium is vital for the formation and maintenance of strong bones and for normal bodily func-
tions such as the development and maintenance of strong teeth. It is required for the contraction and expansion of blood vessels, the secretion of enzymes and hormones, and the transmission of impulses of the nervous system. Vitamin D is equally important for the absorption of calcium from the intestines. The combination is most often used to prevent deficiency and to treat it in those who are calcium deficient. An adequate daily calcium intake is 1,000 milligrams for people between the ages of 19 and 50; and 1,200 for those 50 and older. Food sources include milk, cheese, yogurt, tofu, salmon, fortified cereals and instant breakfast drinks. An adequate daily intake for vitamin D is 200 IU for people between the ages of 19 and 50; 400 IU for those between the ages of 51 and 70; and 600 IU for those 71 and older. This fat-soluble vitamin is found in fortified milk products and cereals, egg yolks, butter, salmon, sardines, herring and beef liver. Aside from food sources, sunlight exposure
for about 15 minutes a day is reported to provide the necessary amount, but don’t get too much sun. Side effects of too much calcium with D include drowsiness, weakness, dry mouth, irregular heartbeat, difficulty breathing, nausea or vomiting and constipation, but the list goes on and on. If any of these symptoms are experienced, a user should contact his or her physician promptly. You don’t indicate your age, so I am unsure whether you have issues with such disorders as osteoporosis; however, if your diet is adequate, I don’t believe you require a supplement, but this can be determined by a blood test. You will continue to receive some benefit from the calcium you take, even if you discontinue the D. Perhaps the answer is to take a good one-a-day vitamin. Speak with your doctor regarding his or her views on the subject. In the interim, read labels at your local grocery store when selecting foods. That way, you can determine whether you satisfy the recommended requirements through diet
alone. If not, the next step might be to select some of the foods recommended so you can increase your intake naturally. To provide related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report “Vitamins & 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 www.AskDrGottMD .com. 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.

Faith Evans pleads no contest to reckless driving LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say Faith Evans has pleaded no contest to reckless driving after being arrested in August for investigation of drunken driving. Los Angeles city attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan
says the Grammy-winning singer entered the plea Monday and was sentenced to three years of informal probation. Police say the 37-year-old Evans was arrested after being stopped at a DUI check-
point in Marina del Rey. She is the widow of rapper Christopher Wallace, also known as the Notorious B.I.G. Evans won a Grammy in 1998 for the song “I’ll Be Missing You.” It was not immediately
clear whether she was represented by an attorney. A phone message left with her agent, Marc Gerald, was not immediately returned. Evans’ plea was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.
Tuesday, Nov. 30 There are strong indications that you will be far luckier than usual in the coming months, both socially and in your business affairs. Numerous opportunities will become available to you in each area, so make the most of them. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If you need some kind of specific favor that can only be granted from someone who has the wherewithal, go directly to an individual who fits this need. Don’t use an intermediary. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Your chances for being able to overcome an adversarial arrangement look extremely encouraging. However, you’ll be most effective if you play your trump cards last. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)— You are likely to find out that there is plenty of justification for feeling hopeful about a new endeavor in which you’re involved. It may prove to have a bit more potential than you think. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — The reason why your chances for success look good is because your emotions and ambitious objectives are in sync. Each force will serve to fuel the other when needed. Aries (March 21-April 19) — When it comes to something for which you need help, first ask someone who would be a competent assistant, and second make sure this person will benefit in some way for his/her help. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — It isn’t like (April 20-May 20) - Your financial affairs can benefit from your usual sources as well as from an occasional asset you’ve used before. If you’re hoping to advance your holdings, go to all wellsprings. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Don’t hesitate to ask for the assistance of someone you know who might be the perfect person to help you swing something important that you’ve been trying to initiate. Chances are s/he’ll comply. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — The only way a matter that is quite meaningful to you materially can be concluded is if you put all else aside and make it your top priority. You’ve got to risk it to get the biscuit. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Something positive could come about through a pal who knows how to ignite your ambitions. This person may be someone you rarely see but who pops up when something of interest is at stake. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Your luck usually tends to come about through situations that can produce material gains through traditional channels, not speculative ones. Don’t waste your time looking elsewhere. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — The major reason that several important objectives will be achieved is because you’re not likely to be too easily discouraged, regardless of the obstacles you might face. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Attitude will be extremely important when it comes to your commercial dealings. Be careful not to anticipate any kind of rejection or negative development. Believe to achieve! United FeatUre Syndicate

For your partner, who needs it! BY PHILLIP ALDER United Feature Syndicate
The Bridge World monthly magazine aims primarily at serious tournament players, but has a section called Bridgeworks, which is specifically for those hoping to become one of the strongest in their club. It would be very useful for your partner! In this declarer-play problem from the magazine, how would you try to make four hearts after West leads the trump jack? The bidding had a modern ring to it. North’s two-diamond reverse was forcing for one round, showing fiveplus clubs, shorter diamonds, fewer than four hearts and four spades, and usually 17plus points. Your two-spade rebid was artificial, showing a weak hand and denying five hearts. (Any rebid higher than two spades would have been natural and game-forcing.) But when North described a powerful 1-3-4-5 hand, you went for game in the 4-3 fit. (Afterward, you will assure partner that East would have led a low trump, the only start to defeat the excellent six-club contract.) Assuming there are no very bad breaks, you have at least 10 tricks: three hearts, two diamonds and five clubs. However, you must be able to draw trumps before you can run the clubs. Here, if you immediately
take your three top hearts and turn to clubs, West will ruff the third club and the defenders will take four spade tricks for down two. Instead, accept one trump loser. Duck the first trick, or win with dummy’s ace and duck the second round of hearts. Then everything is under control. Details are at www.bridgeworld.com.
