and spent more than 16 hours in labor before Payton finally arrived. Payton is her mother’s first baby, and her delivery is an experience she won’t soon forget, she said. “I didn’t get an epidural. All I had was a little pain medicine,” the 20-year-old April Brown said, “and it had worn off by the time she came.” Babies born as early as Payton (more than a month early, considered a “preemie”) are at a higher risk for complications than those

SANFORD — While central North Carolina — and much of the southeast — has been weathering one of the longest stretches of near-freezing temperatures in recent memory, options for those without a warm place to stay are getting harder and harder to come by. “Our facilities always seem to fill up as the temperature gets lower,” said Terry Dominguez, who runs the Christian Faith Church’s women’s shelter in Sanford. Like shelters throughout the region, Dominguez said hers is “absolutely full” with people sleeping in beds, couches and every other available space. “I’ve had several people call that I just couldn’t accept because I’m full,” she said. The duration of the cold snap is unusual, especially in the South, where the weather is typically chilly for just a day or two before temperatures rebound into the 50s. Instead, states like North Carolina, Alabama and Georgia will see temperatures above freezing for just a couple of hours a day all week long. Snow if forecast for Sanford on Friday, and if a considerable amount

SANFORD — Central Carolina Hospital had to wait a couple of days for its first baby of 2010. But there was nothing late about little Payton Brown. The 5-pound, 7-ounce baby made her debut at 3:57 p.m. Sunday as the first baby born at the hospital in the new decade. Born to April Brown and Jarell McLean of Goldston, the little girl arrived more than five weeks earlier that her expected delivery date. Payton, who got her name

ROBBERY

SANFORD — The Lee County Board of Commissioners on Monday approved an incentives package worth $34,781 to Parkdale America, a cotton spinning mill on U.S. 421. The board voted 6-1 with Commissioner Linda Shook dissenting to grant the incentive to the company over a five-year period in exchange for the installation of $2.5 million in new spinning equipment. The Sanford City Council will consider whether to grant an additional $25,043 in incentive to the company on Jan. 13.

HAPPENING TODAY n Temple Theatre will hold auditions for the Winter Conservatory of “Romeo and Juliet.” Appointments available between 4:30 and 8 p.m. for upper middle and high school ages only. To schedule an audition, call Kelly Wright at (919) 7744512, ext. 221.

WHAT’S NEXT? The Sanford City Council will now consider whether to grant an additional $25,043 in incentive to the company during its Jan. 13 meeting. LCEDC Director Bob Heuts said the incentives deal could lead to new jobs down the line.

Shook said she dissented because the new equipment is actually already on the county’s tax rolls. Parkdale purchased the equipment from HanesBrands shortly before that facility closed its doors, taking 150 jobs with it. “I don’t see this as an additional investment of $2.5 million in our county,” she said. “I can’t say this is an economic development project.”

Almanac Today is Tuesday, Jan. 5, the fifth day of 2010. There are 360 days left in the year. This day in history: On Jan. 5, 1925, Nellie T. Ross became governor of Wyoming; she was the first female governor in U.S. history. (She succeeded Frank E. Lucas, who had served as acting governor following the death of Ross’ husband, William B. Ross.) In 1809, the Treaty of the Dardanelles, which ended the Anglo-Turkish War, was concluded by the United Kingdom and the Ottoman Empire. In 1896, an Austrian newspaper (Wiener Presse) reported the discovery by German physicist Wilhelm Roentgen of a type of radiation that came to be known as “X-rays.” In 1933, the 30th president of the United States, Calvin Coolidge, died in Northampton, Mass., at age 60. In 1949, in his State of the Union address, President Harry S. Truman labeled his administration the Fair Deal. In 1970, Joseph A. Yablonski, an unsuccessful candidate for the presidency of the United Mine Workers of America, was found murdered with his wife and daughter at their Clarksville, Pa., home. The soap opera “All My Children” premiered on ABC-TV. In 1994, Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill, former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, died in Boston at age 81. In 1998, Sonny Bono, the 1960’s pop star-turned-politician, was killed when he struck a tree while skiing at the Heavenly Ski Resort on the Nevada-California state line; he was 62.

Pinecrest theater group takes show on the road

SOUTHERN PINES (MCT) — The Pinecrest High School theater company is taking its show on the road. The group, called the Pinecrest Players program, was one of two North Carolina high schools selected to compete in the Southeastern Theatre Conference in Lexington, Ky., from March 3-7. “We’re thrilled,� theater teacher Adam Faw said. “I knew we had a strong production, but at that level, there are so many strong productions.� Faw, who has taught at the school for seven years, selected a play

called “At the Bottom of Lake Missoula� for this year’s competition, which began in the fall. The one-act play by Ed Monk is about a young college student named Pam who lost her family in a tornado. The high school productions are a small part of the four-day festival. More than 300 workshops and performances by various groups make up most of the schedule. Pinecrest actors and musicians began working on the play shortly after returning from summer break. The school was one of 116 that competed at the regional level this fall. It advanced to the state level at Greensboro College, along with 15 other theater groups. Faw said students will perform the play for the public at least three times before the competition, although dates have not been announced. — Fayetteville Observer

RALEIGH

Raleigh Police to undergo major changes RALEIGH (MCT) — Raleigh Police Chief Harry Patrick Dolan unveiled a five-year plan for his department Monday and announced a series of sweeping changes that he described as “historic.� The changes include the opening of the new downtown precinct on West Cabarrus Street and a permanent station in North Raleigh that will house the department’s violent crimes detective unit; the creation of a new detective unit that will focus solely on juvenile crime; and a new intelligence center manned by crime analysts who will provide information about criminal trends in the city to patrol officers and detectives. “In the next five to seven years, the only thing you will recognize in this department are the uniforms and cars. That’s how historic this change is,� Dolan said after a press conference this morning at the department’s Northeast District station at 4501 Atlantic Ave. Although the city council has not yet signed off on the construction of a new downtown police precinct, Dolan said the department has already started moving into a nearby building at 218 W. Cabarrus St. The chief said he expects the department to be completely out of its headquarters on McDowell Street by the end of March. The new headquarters on W. Cabarrus will be open to the public on Tuesday, the department announced during the press conference. The department already has two stations in North Raleigh: on Atlantic Avenue and Litchford Road.

Antiques road show begins today SANFORD — Treasure Hunters Roadshow will be in Sanford beginning today looking to help put a price tag on anything from antiques to junk that may have value.

Editorial Board: Bill Horner III, Publisher • Billy Liggett, Editor • R.V. Hight, Special Projects Editor

Make sure that you are counted this March Our View Issue: The 10-year national census will be taken beginning in March

Our stance: The data gathered is important in determining federal funding for years to come, so we all need to stand up and be counted

A new decade ushers in with it that American responsibility we’ve come to know as the Census. While this year’s Census technically will not go out to the American public until March, Census officials have kicked off the Portrait of America Road Tour as an educational event. A Census publication states, “Traveling for a total of 1,547 days, 13 Road Tour vehicles will stop at more than 800 community gatherings, celebrations and sporting events.” Lee County is coming off a particularly bad experience with the Census. In 2008, the gov-

ernment chose a nine-county region in Central North Carolina that included Lee, Harnett and Moore counties for what they called a “dress rehearsal,” and to put it lightly, it went horribly wrong. After calling on hundreds to help take Census counts, the government dropped the whole project, stating economic reasons and pulling the rug out from the area, which had looked forward to accurate readings from the Census. Our population has grown considerably since 2000 we thought, and updated figures will help us with grants and other government

funding. Looks like we had to wait like everybody else. Because this Census is nationwide, we highly doubt this one will fail, too. It can’t, and despite our bad experience, we still acknowledge the importance of an accurate Census count. So, it’s important that all of us be counted and to make sure our numbers are accurate to receive the full benefit of our population. A lot of literature will be sent out in the coming months, much of it aimed at the Latino population, many of whom they fear will dodge being counted for immigration reasons.

Whether somebody is here legally or not, they need to be counted. This year’s Census, which will be distributed in March, contains just 10 questions. Wouldn’t it be nice if our annual tax forms were as simple? Citizens will need to return the Census as soon as possible (the Census is even providing a postage-paid envelope). Census takers will follow up with those who do not return their forms. Come March, be prepared to fill out your Census and return it. Make sure that you and your family are counted.

Chance card

A

ssociated Press reporter Gary Robertson recently offered an interesting take on the Democratic field in this year’s U.S. Senate race in North Carolina. It’s made up, he wrote, of candidates looking for second chances. Secretary of State Elaine Marshall sought the Democratic nod for Senate once before, in 2002. She lost to former Clinton White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles, who went on to lose to Elizabeth Dole — and then lost two years later to the man Marshall now wants to challenge, Richard Burr. As for another Democratic hopeful, attorney Ken Lewis, the second chance isn’t so much a personal one as one for a cause. Back in the 1990s, Lewis helped with Harvey Gantt’s failed challenge to the late Sen. Jesse Helms. Now, as a candidate himself, Lewis wants another chance to elect North Carolina’s first black Democrat in the U.S. Senate. Robertson also noted that former state Sen. Cal Cunningham passed on the 2010 race just a few weeks ago, then changed his mind. But I think a better description of Cunningham’s second chance is that his first effort at launching a political career fizzled after a single term in the state senate. ... While I appreciate the secondchances theme, I think the most likely outcome in 2010 is that all of these Democratic candidates will be left hoping for a third chance. While Richard Burr is a relatively unknown freshman senator, he brings little baggage into the race. He’s not unpopular, just unknown. That means he still has the opportunity and the means to define himself for the electorate in the coming months. Overall, the environment doesn’t appear to be favorable to the Democratic challengers. The political winds could certainly shift, but right now they’re blowing Republican. ... Marshall can run without having to give up her job as secretary of state. As a female candidate who has won four statewide elections, she’s got to be considered the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination. If she goes on to lose in November, few will blame her. If lightning strikes and she wins, she’ll probably be a Democratic hero in an adverse political cycle. As for Cunningham and Lewis, they are ambitious politicians who need to introduce themselves to the statewide electorate. Again, few would blame either for losing to Burr in the fall should he wrest the nomination from Marshall. ... Perhaps the greatest opportunity to make political history here belongs to Richard Burr, by the way. Remember that the seat he holds has turned over every six years since Sam Ervin gave it up in 1974. Robert Morgan kept it for the Democrats that year. John East took it for the Republicans in 1980. Former Democratic Gov. Terry Sanford won it in 1986, then lost it to Republican Lauch Faircloth in 1992. The Breck Girl came along in 1998 ... and then vacated it for Burr in 2004. With Elizabeth Dole having lost Helms’ old seat after a single term, Burr has a shot at creating the first lengthy Senate career since the retirement of North Carolina’s two conservative powerhouses, Ervin and Helms.

Today’s Prayer

Why is Congress allowing it? Citizens have a hard enough time with job loss and the economy. Congress used our tax money to bail the banks out; yet, they won’t act on stopping gas stations, merchants and banks from using unfair practices. I have not personally been a victim of the unfair practices but know of people who have been. I have researched the Internet and have read of their hardships because of the unfair practices. However, it could easily happen to me or anyone else. Just one little transaction error (even 1 penny over your account) can cost you hundreds of dollars depending on how many checks you have written. In my opinion, Congress is allowing legal robbery by not putting a stop to it. Not only is Congress allowing it, but the citizens are allowing it by not writing to our Congressmen requesting them to act on citizens being victimized by these unfair practices. Gas stations and merchants play a part in swindling citizens when citizens use their debit card and the gas station or merchant puts a hold on your bank account for an amount of $50 or more above your actual purchase without your knowledge or consent until the debit charge is paid. The unsuspecting citizen, thinking they have sufficient funds in their account, makes another purchase which may bounce because of the hold on additional monies placed on their account by these gas stations and merchants. The banks could stop this practice, but will not because it increases the possibility of a citizen having insufficient funds, thereby increasing the bank’s revenue by charging $35 for each overdraft when the person actually had funds in the bank to cover the debit purchases. The banks do not post on weekends, therefore if you make several purchases by a debit card or checks over the weekend and on Monday make a large purchase or pay a bill by debit card or check, the bank reshuffles the debits or checks and pays the largest amount first. The collection of overdraft fees impacts millions of Americans and has become a multibillion-dollar business practice for the banks. In 2007, banks collected more than $17 billion in overdraft fees. That number nearly doubled in 2008, as more and more consumers struggled to maintain positive checking account balances. In 2009, banks are expected to bring in between $27 billion to $38.5 billion in overdraft charges from nearly 50 million customers. DOROTHY CRAIG Sanford

Dec. 11, 2000 - Jan. 4, 2009

Alex, It has been a year since you passed. Some days I still canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe you are gone. I can still hear your voice, your laughter, and I still feel your touch. I still call your name and then I sit down and cry when I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear an answer. To lose a child is the most painful experience imaginable. People always say that the pain lessens over time, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. I think we just learn to live with it. When you passed, my heart shattered and a piece of it went with you. My heart will never be whole until I have you in my arms again. You were barely eight years old when you passed, but in that short time you made so many memories and touched so many hearts.Your life and death reminded people to cherish every moment they have and live and love everyday. You fought your cancer with everything you had and never gave up hope. You never thought for a moment that you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get better. You were always ready to try something new and never complained. I was and I am so very proud of you. I thank God everyday that I was able to be you moma even for a little while. How many people can say that they held an angel? Momaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are supposed to make things better and I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kiss your pain away or make the tumor disappear. I know there was nothing I could have done, but I still feel like I failed you. The most I could do was hold you, tell you how much I love you, and be there every time you needed me. I hope for you that was enough and I am sorry for not being able to protect you. I love you Bucca and I miss you so much. One day we will be together again and on that day, I will hold you in my arms and know what heaven really means. Love and kisses always and forever. Love your moma always

Shane Seagroves, Lee Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency management director, said there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any plans in place to open up emergency shelters either for the homeless or for those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the ability to heat their homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long time since weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a cold snap like this that went on and on and on,â&#x20AC;? Seagroves said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had no requests for anything like (shelters) right now.â&#x20AC;? Seagroves said the situation would have to become much worse for the county to open any shelters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it was a situation with power outages and lots of people with no place to go, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to look at doing something,â&#x20AC;?

Lee County Economic Development Director Bob Heuts said that Parkdale has options for locating the equipment â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is subject to county property taxes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; outside the county. He also noted that if Parkdale locates the equipment at its 400,000 square-foot facility on U.S. 421, it could lead the company to hire more workers. The board also unanimously approved a revision to its resolution to increase the county sales tax by a quarter cent. The

Firefighters are also bracing for more calls this week. Local crews braved the cold for hours Saturday battling a large house fire on North Plank Road, and in South Carolina, five people died in a fire Friday in rural Plymouth, Mo., likely caused by an unattended fireplace.

tax increase, which was set to take effect on April 1, now will not be enacted until July 1. The commissioners voted in December to increase the sales tax by a quarter cent to 8 percent following a November ballot measure in which voters gave the board leeway to do so as a method for funding renovations at Lee County High School. The delay in the increase is the result of a ruling by the state Department of Revenue that the increase can only take effect on Jan. 1 or July 1 since the county didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give 90 days advance notice to the state. customers and employees in the bank at the time of the robbery, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still interviewing them about what exactly happened,â&#x20AC;?

PITTSBORO

Merchant hit where it hurts PITTSBORO (MCT) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Whoever burglarized Beggars and Choosers, one of Pittsboroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest merchants, snatched only the most precious items as they prowled the downtown shop in October. They made off with the cash and the gold, silver and Victorian-era jewelry -- and they took store owner Pam Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s joy. Of all she lost in the theft, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s her bliss she misses most. Seems she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run the store without it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the stuff and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the money,â&#x20AC;? Smith says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it did to my spirit.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be closing after a clearance sale today. For 30 years, Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three-floored emporium on a corner across from the old courthouse served customers with an eye for the eclectic. Like the storekeeper herself, it all belonged to a different era: the vintage clothing, the chenille bedspreads, the antique furniture. Beggars and Choosers began in another small Chatham County community, nearby Goldston, when Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband, bluegrass bassist Thomas â&#x20AC;&#x153;Snuffyâ&#x20AC;? Smith, suggested she put her â&#x20AC;&#x153;junk magnetâ&#x20AC;? tendencies to good use. After a couple of years, she began to think her 1940s womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suits and couture clothing from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;50s and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s would sell better closer to the Triangleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s colleges. But she wanted to raise her two young boys in a small town.

Where do you go when you

Pittsboro, which still has only about 2,500 people, seemed perfect. She bought the 1890s brick building, thinking she would never fill it. The town embraced her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went in there about once a week,â&#x20AC;? says Chris Pratt, who has lived in Pittsboro for a decade. He bought Virlieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grill, two doors down Hillsboro Street from Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s store, a couple of years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never knew what I was looking for when I went in,â&#x20AC;? Pratt says of the Christmas decorations and old carrom boards that now hang in his restaurant. The business grew as Smith bought whole estates, picking out the most desirable items and giving others to area thrift shops. As her collection of Depression-era clothing and accessories expanded, costumers for stage and film began to visit. She helped outfit â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bull Durhamâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Patch Adams.â&#x20AC;? Even in Chatham County, known for its artists and specialty farms, Smith says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an eccentric. The daughter of a preacher, she has the residual accent of her coastal upbringing and a voice powerful enough for a pulpit â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or a community theater stage, where she has spent a lot of time. Her front display windows are a bit of drama, too, with Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mannequins in storytelling vignettes. One features a female form

in a dog mask who appears to be holding class for a half-dozen canine figurines. For the past five years, Smith has offered a special deal for clothing shoppers. Working from the stash in the basement, they could build an ensemble for free, but they had to wear every piece of it out of the store as they left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It livened up the town,â&#x20AC;? Smith says, describing some of the mismatched combinations she sent into the streets.

and happy. CCH Spokeswoman Margaret Minuth said it is odd for the hospital to wait so long to deliver its first baby of a year. If Payton had not been born on Sunday, to C-

section deliveries were scheduled for Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The nurses on the unit say that we had a lot of deliveries in December and a lot that were delivered early,â&#x20AC;? Minuth said of the wait. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had 72 deliveries in December. But as the nurse on the unit said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;babies come whenever they are ready to come, so we have to plan around them.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Hidden in the store? On special occasions, she wore costumes to work. She was in she-devil garb for the Pittsboro Street Fair the weekend before Halloween, when the burglary happened. She spent much of the day outside, visiting, while employees ran the store and closed up that night. About 45 minutes after closing, Smith went back to finish up. She noticed the cash drawer was empty, but thought it was because it had been a busy day. Then she realized all the folding money was gone, too. She went upstairs and saw the jewelry cases had been picked clean. The entire haul could have been taken out in one of the vintage pillowcases from the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s textile collection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think maybe they hid in the store,â&#x20AC;? Smith says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and came out after it closed.â&#x20AC;?

It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been that hard, her husband suggests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To hide in here, all you have to do is stand still.â&#x20AC;? When the police came, Smith was still in her sexy red-sequined devil dress, horns and crimson lipstick.

Looking forward She reopened after the burglary and came to work as she always had, smiling, sporting a pair of striped Wicked Witch socks or some other bit of colorful attire. She greeted her customers, helped them when they needed it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But whenever someone came in that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but wonder, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Could that be them? Could they have done it?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Smith says. The store â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a source of income but also a social outlet for Smith, who gets to know people as they shop for a decades-old prom dress or a military jacket -had been tainted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided I had to close it,â&#x20AC;? she says. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s having a oneday sale from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. today to clear out the merchandise and, she hopes, the specter of loss. Everything will be 50 to 75 percent off. At 62, Smith says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not ready to retire, but not sure what she wants to do. If the shop comes back, she says, it will be different from before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to make it my own again.â&#x20AC;?

STATE BRIEFS Used Christmas trees bring another gift at Outer Banks

COROLLA (AP) — Discarded Christmas trees could bring their own gift to people along North Carolina’s Outer Banks. The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk, Va., reported that officials in Currituck County are collecting Christmas trees for a project to rebuild sand dunes damaged in a November storm. Crews will tie the trees with biodegradable string to new sand fences installed about 10 feet from the base of the eroded dunes. Sand blowing should catch in the trees and fencing, officials said. The dunes should be rebuilt in a season or two, said Brenda McQueen, superintendent of buildings for the Currituck County Public Works Department. “We’re helping Mother Nature with her efforts,” McQueen said. In most of the county, residents should bring Christmas trees to recycling centers, minus their decorations and tinsel. In Corolla, trees should be dropped off at the water plant. The county does not plan to restore dunes on private property. About one mile of fence costs $4,815, McQueen said. Two to three rows of fencing of 8-to-10 foot lengths will be put up near the dunes. No state or federal assistance is available for the project.

Lavin in familiar play, different role

WILMINGTON (AP) — Actress Linda Lavin is again starring in “The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife,” but the venue isn’t Broadway and the role isn’t the one written for her. The Star-News of Wilmington reports that Lavin is playing the role of Freida in Charles Busch’s play at the Red Barn Studio in Wilmington that she and her husband own. The play opens Jan. 7. Lavin originated the lead role of Marjorie Taub in a Tony-nominated Broadway performance in 2000. Busch has said he wrote that role for her. The comedy centers on the role of Marjorie, a New York City housewife suffering a mid-life crisis. Her mother,

Freida, is more worried about her own problems. Lavin will return to Broadway in April to play Ruth Steiner in “Collected Stories” by Donald Margulies.

Mother, 3 children suffer CO poisoning in home CHARLOTTE (AP) — Authorities say a North Carolina mother and her three young children were rushed to a hospital with carbon monoxide poisoning after she cooked on a charcoal grill inside their apartment. Multiple media outlets report the Charlotte family was rescued Sunday evening after a neighbor’s carbon monoxide detector went off. Upstairs neighbor Edward Kennedy said he called 911 after he realized where the smoke was coming from and knocked on their door without an answer. Charlotte Fire Department Capt. Mark Basnight said the mother had been cooking vegetables on a charcoal grill inside. Firefighters found the four inside, semiconscious and unable to move. The children were ages 10 and under. Their condition at a Charlotte hospital was unknown.

Group donates to Blue Ridge Parkway celebration WINSTON-SALEM (AP) — A North Carolina organization has pledged $25,000 for celebrations marking the 75th anniversary of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Winston-Salem Journal reports Monday that the Blue Ridge Foundation will donate the money for the yearlong celebration. The Winston-Salem-based nonprofit is the parkway’s primary fundraiser. The 469-mile parkway stretches from Front Royal, Va., to Cherokee. Construction began in 1935. Foundation director Houck Medford says the amount is the largest financial donation toward the celebration. He said North Carolina and Virginia have not designated money as hoped. Four official parkway celebrations have been planned, including symposiums, a marathon and a festival in the Cumberland Knob area in early September.

ABC board members stepping down WILMINGTON (AP) — All three Alcoholic Beverage Control board members in New Hanover County announced their resignations Monday in an attempt to defuse controversy over the salaries of the board’s father-and-son administrative leaders. Chairman Charles Wells, Richard Hanson and Stephen Culbreth told the county commissioners in their resignation letter they hoped to dissipate public “misunderstandings” about their performance as board members. The announcement comes after scrutiny of the county’s ABC board and the pay of administrator Billy Williams and his son, assistant administrator Bradley Williams. Billy Williams earns $232,200 annually, while Bradley Williams gets a salary of $115,500. The Star-News of Wilmington reported recently the

RALEIGH (AP) — New standards go into effect this week that could make North Carolina’s system of rating assisted-living homes more useful to people looking for a place for an older relative to live. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Monday that the state will add a four-star rating for the best of these homes, which the state calls adult-care homes. Previously, the highest ranking was three. In addition, the state will now consider recent penalties for violations such as medication errors and failure to stop residents’ wandering when determining a rating. State officials and industry representatives say the change means the homes will find it more difficult to get a top rating. In the past, about 95 percent of the more than 1,200 centers in North Carolina got a top rating. When the Division

pay issue, but the hearing was canceled. Billy Williams said Monday he’s “absolutely sick” about the resignations and said he would consider taking a pay cut if necessary. “They’ve been bashed a lot,” he said. “I don’t blame them for leaving.” New Hanover sold nearly $31 million worth of liquor during the 2008-09 fiscal year, at a profit margin above 14 percent — marking one of best performances in the state. The board has run the system well but erred in giving out such large salaries, county commissioner Bobby Greer said. “I’m just sorry it’s gotten into such a big deal,” Greer said. Gov. Beverly Perdue told the state board in November to examine the wide disparity in the salaries of local board administrators.

the commissioners. “We hope our resignations will remove the pall of misunderstanding and enable you to appoint a new board.” Commissioners will discuss naming an interim board to run the ABC system until a new, permanent board is named. County and municipal ABC boards in North Carolina sell liquor to the public and to those licensed to sell mixed beverages and can hire officers to enforce liquor laws. “This puts it to bed and now we can move forward and make positive changes,” said county commission chairman Jason Thompson. The resignations were announced on the same day the commissioners scheduled a public hearing with Alcoholic Beverage Control board members. The ABC members were expected to take questions on the

pair’s pay had increased by about 50 percent in the last five years and both men received cash bonuses. The father and son each make more than state ABC commission chairman Jon Williams and state administrator Michael Herring. Local boards similar in size and sales pay their administrators half as much as what the elder Williams makes. The resigning board members have defended the salaries they approved, arguing that Billy Williams, who first began working as an ABC clerk in 1968, and his son both worked their way through the ranks. Billy Williams doesn’t set his son’s salary. “The divisiveness of the continuing disputes become more insidious and disruptive of the functioning of the ABC system,” the local ABC board members wrote to

of Adult Care Licensure started issuing star ratings for adult-care homes in January 2009, it didn’t consider previous penalties for inadequate care before the system started. This year, penalties levied against centers for neglect, unsafe conditions or inadequate care could weigh heavily against them. Other factors include whether the facilities meet standards on staffing, training and sanitation. “When the four stars start being issued, you’ll see a truer reflection of the care being provided,” said Jeff Horton, head of the state Division of

Health Service Regulation, which oversees the centers. Adult-care homes are not the same as the more medically intensive and federally regulated nursing homes. Some advocates for older people note that the ratings may not be as strict as they seem. “The ... star rating system is not like a restaurant star rating system, which gives maximum stars for going above and beyond minimum standards,” the group Friends of Residents in Long Term Care said on its Web site. The group points out that the system is based

on an evaluation of a home’s compliance with minimum standards. Lou Wilson, executive director of the N.C. Association of Long Term Care Facilities, has told legislators for years that adult-care homes aren’t compensated fairly for the increasing number of chronically ill residents. Many of the homes deserved the top ratings they received, she said. “The majority of folks that are out there running rest homes are working their rears off,” she said. “They are trying their best to stay in compliance with that little bit of money that they have.”

Two guards shot in federal building

LAS VEGAS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A man dressed in black opened fire with a shotgun at a federal building Monday in downtown Las Vegas, killing a court security guard and wounding a U.S. marshal before he was shot to death in a running gunbattle across the street. The gunfire erupted moments after 8 a.m. at the start of the work week and lasted for several minutes. Shots echoed around tall buildings in the area, more than a mile north of the Las Vegas Strip. An Associated Press reporter on the eighth floor of a highrise within sight of the federal building heard a sustained barrage of gunfire. A passer-by said he counted at least 40 shots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first shot that I heard was a shotgun blast. I knew it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fireworks,â&#x20AC;? said Ray Freres, 59, a sandwich shop manager and Vietnam veteran who said he was behind the federal court building at the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard an exchange of gunfire. I was watching the street,â&#x20AC;? Freres told the AP. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they were coming my way, I was going the other way.â&#x20AC;? The U.S. Marshals Service said the victims included a 48-year-old deputy U.S. marshal who was hospitalized and a 65-year-old court security

The dead guard was Stanley Cooper, a retired Las Vegas police officer employed by Akal Security, said Jeff Carter, spokesman for the Marshals Service in Washington. Las Vegas police did not immediately provide information about Cooper. Carter said he was a police officer for 26 years and became a federal court security officer in Las Vegas in 1994. Authorities did not immediately release the names of the wounded marshal or the gunman. U.S. Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev., told reporters it appeared the gunman acted alone and the shooting was not a terrorist act. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now they have no motive established,â&#x20AC;? Ensign told a news con-

ference outside the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bottom line is, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get past security.â&#x20AC;? Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Roxanna Lea Irwin also said authorities believe the shooter acted alone. The man, dressed in black pants, shirt and jacket, opened fire in front of a set of security metal detectors just inside the rotunda of the federal building, FBI Special Agent Joseph Dickey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From what witness accounts have said, he walked in with a shotgun underneath his jacket and opened fire when he opened the doors,â&#x20AC;? Dickey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seven officers responded and returned fire.â&#x20AC;? Ensign said the guard who died had been shot in the chest. A YouTube video

recorded the sound of the running firefight as the man retreated across Las Vegas Boulevard toward another federal building and a historic school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could see guards and everything coming out, and then all of a sudden I just started hearing pop, pop, pop. I mean, just like 30 or 40 shots,â&#x20AC;? said Troy Saccal, a tax services manager who was arriving for work at the time. Saccal said he thought he saw one guard slump to the ground and another move to help him. The gunman died moments later in the bushes outside the restored Fifth Street School, where his body remained for several hours. A Las Vegas police spokeswoman, Officer Barbara Morgan, said the man had been shot in the head. Dickey said about midday that investigators had identified the gunman but were not immediately releasing his name. John Clark, director of the U.S. Marshals Service in Washington, did not immediately identify the officers, but called them heroes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The brave and immediate actions of these two individuals saved lives by stopping the threat of a reckless and callous gunman,â&#x20AC;? Clark said in a statement.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A man who caused a security breach at Newark Liberty International Airport, forcing major delays and grounding flights for six hours, left about 20 minutes after he walked the wrong way through a security checkpoint, the Transportation Security Administration said Monday. Someone picking up a passenger told an officer guarding the exit that he thought he saw a man enter through the doors Sunday, TSA spokeswoman Ann Davis said. TSA reviewed surveillance video before sweeping the airport, she said. The video confirmed the man had entered through the exit, and officials made passengers leave the terminal and be rescreened. The video also showed the man leaving the terminal through another exit about 20 minutes later, Davis said, although it was unclear when authorities learned the man had left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to operate under the assumption that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still in the sterile area,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to ensure that he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t introduced anything to the sterile area.â&#x20AC;? Authorities found nothing suspicious when they searched the terminal after evacuating passengers. They are still trying to determine the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s identity.

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For car buyers, four words mean the difference between going home in a new sedan or their old clunker: Your loan is approved. They are being uttered more often these days, spurred by a trillion-dollar government program that provides guarantees when those loans are sold to investors. That is helping banks, credit unions and auto finance companies make auto loans at a quickening pace. And consumers are paying less to borrow. Interest rates have been at record lows since last December. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bit of good news for the auto industry in the U.S., where 2009 sales are expected to hit a 30-year low of around 10 million when figures are announced Tuesday. Partly because of loosening credit, industry analysts expect more than 1 million cars and light trucks to be sold in December, the best monthly performance since Cash for Clunkers in August. Financial firms wrote 5.5 percent more car loans in the third quarter compared with the prior three months, Experian Automotive says. Fourth-quarter figures arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet available, but Jesse Toprak, vice president of the auto pricing tracker TrueCar Inc., says December saw an uptick in auto loan approvals for consumers with average or above-average credit as auto finance companies tried to clear out inventory.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Republican U.S. Rep. Henry Brown, a farm boy who rose to became one of South Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most powerful politicians, announced Monday he will not seek a sixth term in Congress so he can spend more time with his family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While this has been a difficult decision to make, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m convinced that this is

the right time for me to step down,â&#x20AC;? Brown said in a statement. The 74-year-old said he wants to spend more time with his wife of 54 years, Billye, and his three children and five grandchildren. Brown, first elected in 2000 in a reliably Republican district along the South Carolina coast, said he considered retiring two years ago but ran in 2008 because he felt he could make a contribution no matter who was elected president. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite my many disagreements with the political and legislative direction of our country under the present administration, I leave office with the highest faith in the people of this great nation,â&#x20AC;? he said.

ENTERTAINMENT BRIEFS

Pay-per-interview policies blurred By DAVID BAUDER AP Television Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Policies forbidding payment for news interviews increasingly seem like the network television equivalent of the 55 mph speed limit: a rule often winked at unless you’re heading into a speed trap. Three of the past month’s accidental celebrities — Jasper Schuringa, who helped thwart an attack on a Detroit-bound plane; David Goldman, who took a custody fight for his son to Brazil; and the White House partycrashing Salahis — have either sought or received goodies from TV networks eager to hear their stories. Schuringa gave interviews to outlets that had agreed to purchase blurry cell phone images he’d taken of a man who authorities say tried to use explosives to take down the plane. Goldman and his son accepted NBC’s offer of a ride home from Brazil on a charter airplane. Representatives for Michaele and Tareq Salahi, who embarrassed the Obama administration by sneaking into a state dinner, were reportedly seeking six-figure bids from networks to tell their story. “I don’t know if people

David Goldman, top, is followed by his 9-year-old son Sean, gestures as he boards a plane at the Galeao airport, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Society of Professional Journalists condemned NBC News for practicing “checkbook journalism” by chartering a jet that carried a New Jersey man involved in a bitter custody battle and his son home from Brazil. would have thought of that in the past,” said Andy Schotz, head of the ethics committee for the Society of Professional Journalists. “But now often the first thing people think of is to get a publicist, a lawyer and an agent and figure out how to make money” from instant notoriety, he said. The society condemned NBC for “checkbook journalism” with the Goldman trip. NBC said it had already chartered a

plane to bring its personnel back from Brazil, and Goldman’s lawyer said the invitation was accepted so father and son could avoid being accosted by multiple camera crews on the way home. But NBC took multiple pictures and interviewed Goldman on the plane before his exclusive “Today” interview with Meredith Vieira. And the network seems immune to the industry’s financial troubles: A chartered jet

from Brazil to New York would cost about $90,000, according to Blue Star Jets, a New York-based charter company. Going commercial, a coach seat runs under $1,400. Policies against paying for interviews are in place to avoid distorting the news. The concern is that news subjects will change their stories to make them more valuable or please those who paid them. Evasion efforts seem centered primarily on ultra-competitive morning news shows and prime-time magazines. These outlets now fight for stories that might have been considered tabloid fodder years ago, often against Web sites or other outlets that won’t hesitate to pay for an interview or information. News organizations now frequently pay interview subjects for the use of personal photos or videos. Both CNN and ABC paid for a Schuringa photo, reportedly thousands of dollars, and insisted they were not paying for an interview. Yet Gawker.com said Shai Ben-Ami, a Schuringa friend who was helping arrange media appearances, made it clear the Dutch hero wouldn’t speak to an outlet that didn’t buy rights to a photo. Ben-Ami would not comment to The Associated Press.

Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange hospitalized TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A publicist for Artie Lange says the comedian and radio personality has been hospitalized. In an email sent Monday to The Associated Press, publicist Lange Hilary Hansen declined to elaborate, saying, “Artie has chosen to keep all information on this matter between him and his doctor.” The 42-year-old Lange, best known as Howard Stern’s radio sidekick, has been absent from Stern’s Sirius radio show for a month. On Monday’s show, Stern said Lange isn’t leaving the program and called him “a tremendous contributor.” Lange, who lives in Hoboken, N.J., has battled drug addiction. In September, a New Jersey judge revoked his driving privileges for seven months after he admitted he was under the influence of prescribed sleeping pills in a minor traffic accident.

Katie Couric was replaced Monday by a voiceover featuring actor Morgan Freeman. The legendary CBS News anchor recorded the introduction, played at the beginning of most newscasts, when Couric started at CBS in 2006. Cronkite’s voice was kept on the air even after his death July 17. “As comforting as it is to look back on the great career that Walter had, we’re looking forward now and we just felt it was the right time to make the move that at some point had to be made,” said CBS News and Sports President Sean McManus. “This seemed like the appropriate time since Walter’s passing to make the move.” Having Freeman on board gives CBS the flexibility to record different intros when Couric has special reports and is on location, he said. CBS has replaced Cronkite with a generic voice over the past few months when it wanted to highlight something special. The change also gives the network more consistency, McManus said.

Burt Bacharach postpones shows after surgery LOS ANGELES (AP) — A publicist says Burt Bacharach is postponing several concerts as he recovers from back surgery. Publicist Linda Dozoretz says the 81-year-old composer is recovering at a hospital after the New Year’s Eve surgery. Dozoretz says Bacharach’s prognosis is excellent, but he will need to postpone scheduled concerts through mid-March. Performances in Australia, New Zealand and Palm Beach, Fla., will be rescheduled for later in this year or early next year. Bacharach most recently performed on Dec. 19 in Italy.

Emile Hirsch joins celeb climb of Kilimanjaro

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Emile Hirsch is on his way to Africa to climb the continent’s highest peak. The “Milk” and “Into the Wild” star is joining Jessica Biel, Lupe Fiasco, Isabel Lucas and Elizabeth Gore for a weeklong trek up Mount Kilimanjaro. The Summit on the Summit expedition, which begins Thursday, aims to use star power to help raise awareness about the need for clean water worldwide. The 24-year-old Hirsch says the climb combines “an epic adventure with an educational process on the global water crisis.” Fans can follow the climb online and donate as little as a dollar to provide clean water to those who need it. ** Planet 51: PG (10:20), 12:20, 5:25 ** Planet 51: PG (10:20), 12:20, 5:25 **= No Pases *Not Showing on Friday 12/25/09

WASHINGTON (AP) — People traveling to the United States from or through Yemen, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia and 11 other countries were subjected to extra security screening, including full body pat-downs, Monday as U.S. officials refined their response to a failed terrorist attack in Detroit on Christmas. The Transportation Security Administration outlined the new rules in a directive sent to airlines Sunday. They went into effect Monday, but initial reports from several European countries indicated that they were still scrambling to digest and implement the new rules. Many other passengers who are not from those 14 countries or traveling through them will continue to see additional screening measures, according to a senior TSA

U.S.-bound international flights will be subject to random screening and airports were directed to increase “threat-based” screening of passengers acting in a suspicious manner. People who are from or traveling from or through these countries are supposed to have full-body pat-downs and have their carryon luggage checked: Cuba, Iran, Sudan, Syria, Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria,

Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, and Yemen. The U.S. has designated Cuba, Iran, Sudan and Syria to be state sponsors of terrorism. The other 10 countries are considered “of interest.” People from there or traveling through there could also be subject to full-body scanning and explosive detection technology as part of their screening.

Witnesses said a 23-year-old Nigerian, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, ignited an explosive mixture but it failed to do serious damage to the Northwest jetliner or its passengers. He has told U.S. investigators he received training and instructions from al-Qaida operatives in Yemen. TSA security directives are issued to the airlines to be carried out. David Castelveter, spokesman for the Air Transport Association, which represents major U.S. air carriers, said he would not discuss any new TSA measures because doing so might compromise security. “We are not having discussions about the measures or how they work or do not work,” Castelveter said in an interview.

Dems intend to bypass GOP on health compromise

WASHINGTON (AP) — House and Senate Democrats intend to bypass traditional procedures when they negotiate a final compromise on health care legislation, officials said Monday, a move that will exclude Republican lawmakers and reduce their ability to delay or force politically troubling votes in both houses. The unofficial timetable calls for final passage of the measure to remake the nation’s health care system by the time President Barack Obama delivers his State of the Union address, probably in early February. Democratic aides said the final compromise talks would essentially be a three-way negotiation involving top Democrats in the House and Senate and the White House, a structure that gives unusual latitude to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California. These officials said there are no plans to appoint a formal House-Senate conference committee, the method Congress most often uses to reconcile differing bills. Under that customary format, a committee chairman is appointed to preside, and other senior lawmakers from both parties and houses participate in typically perfunctory public meetings while the meaningful negotiations occur behind closed doors.

WASHINGTON (AP) — All but one of the Washington staffers for Rep. Parker Griffith resigned on Monday in protest of the Alabama congressman’s decision to switch from the Democratic to the Republican Party. In a sharply worded statement, Griffith’s former chief of staff, Sharon Wheeler, called the freshman congressman’s switch a “mistake” that goes against the interests of his district, which relies heavily on federal funding for defense and aerospace jobs. “We cannot in good conscience continue working for him,” Wheeler said. “We do not know what the future holds, but we are taking a leap of faith with the belief we will soon find ourselves in the employment of principled public officials.” Griffith’s legislative aides, interns and other junior staffers also quit, joining his former spokesman, Sean Magers, who had already announced he was leaving.

COUGARS STUN TAR HEELS 82-79 IN OVERTIME

By RYAN SARDA sarda@sanfordherald.com

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Andrew Goudelock’s long 3-pointer tied the game with 2 seconds left in regulation, Donavan Monroe gave College of Charleston the lead for good with a 3 to start overtime and the Cougars beat No. 9 North Carolina 82-79 on Monday night. The Tar Heels (11-4) had trailed most of the game, but used a late run to take a 72-61 lead with 4 minutes to go. That’s when Goudelock and the Cougars (8-6) got going. Goudelock scored the last 8 points in regulation, including the fadeaway 3 from about 28 feet with 6-foot-10 Ed Davis in his face to make it 73-all.

nfl SHANAHAN FLIES TO D.C. TO DISCUSS COACHING JOB ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have moved quickly in their pursuit of Mike Shanahan. The former Denver Broncos coach flew to Washington on owner Dan Snyder’s plane hours after the team fired Jim Zorn. Shanahan landed at Dulles International Airport near Redskins Park in mid-afternoon and was driven away in a limousine. Shanahan is the team’s top choice to replace Zorn, who was dismissed in the pre-dawn hours a day after Washington completed a 4-12 season with a 23-20 loss at San Diego.

Texas Tech fired Leach on Dec. 30, two days after it suspended him while it investigated Adam James’ allegations for mistreatment after he got a concussion. Leach’s attorney has said he plans to file a lawsuit against the school.

nba ARENAS MEETS WITH AUTHORITIES ABOUT GUNS WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas says he took unloaded guns from his locker in a “misguided effort to play a joke” on a teammate. Arenas released a written statement Monday after meeting with law enforcement officials. And Arenas’ lawyer says the player voluntarily met with prosecutors and detectives and answered every question during a two-hour interview. In his statement, Arenas repeated his earlier assertion that he brought four guns to the Verizon Center to store in his locker in order to get them out of his house and away from his children. He said he mistakenly believed that recent changes in D.C. law made it legal for him to store unloaded guns there.

Grace Christian’s Brandon Welborn (right) dribbles around Chatham Central’s Mark Oliver in a recent game at Grace Christian School. After a two week break, the Crusaders will travel to Vandalia on Tuesday in NCCSA 3-A West conference action.

After much needed rest, Crusaders return to conference play By RYAN SARDA sarda@sanfordherald.com SANFORD — It’s a New Year for the Grace Christian boys’ basketball team. The Crusaders ended 2009 as winners and head coach Steve Murr hopes that trend continues in 2010. After two weeks off, the Crusaders (2-14,1-3) will return to action tonight at NCCSA 3-A West conference rival Vandalia Christian (6-4, 2-3). The game is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. tipoff in Greensboro. When the two teams met back on Nov. 17 in Sanford, Vandalia pulled away with a 66-37 victory. “As always, I’m pretty optimistic,” said Murr. “They beat us in our place earlier in the year. This time, I think we’ve got a pretty good shot against them. They lost to Faith Christian and we actually beat Faith. You never know what can happen, though.” Before their break, the Crusaders played a stretch of nine games in a span of 11 days. Grace also went through a rough patch where they lost the first 14 games of the season before finally winning its last two games over Faith Christian (34-32)

and New Life Camp of Raleigh (48-43). “As many games as we played, we needed the time off,” said Murr. “We went through a stretch where we were playing back-to-back games and as many as three games in a week. I think the rest will help us when it comes time for the latter stages of conference play.” Despite starting the season 0-14, getting a win against the Vikings could do wonders for the young Crusaders. A win will drop Vandalia to 2-4 in conference play and will improve the Crusaders to 2-3, which will put them in sole possession of fifth place in the conference. “Vandalia’s a good team that’s had a good season so far,” said Murr. “It was pretty much an upset when they lost to Faith. We’re just going to have to come out and be ready for a tough game against a tough opponent.” Murr was pleased with his team’s play prior to the holiday break and he hopes that the momentum the Crusaders gained at the end of 2009 will carry over into 2010. “I knew that eventually we were going to start winning and playing well,” said Murr. “Those two wins

really gave us some momentum and we hope that it carries over and we start doing well in conference because this is where it really matters.” Throughout the break, the Crusaders only had four practices in hopes of getting his team well rested for the second half of the season. In Monday’s final preparation for the Vandalia game, it was actually the first practice since Dec. 19 where the entire team was together. “We had practice over the break, but not everyone was able to make it because of the holidays,” said Murr. “We actually had our first practice (Monday) with everyone there. It should be interesting to see how we come out against Vandalia.” After getting the much needed rest and relaxation, Murr hopes that the long layover doesn’t hurt his team in its first game back. “I hope that these guys have been wanting to get back on the court bad enough that they’re going to come out and play well against Vandalia,” said Murr. “We need to come out and play well. We want that momentum to extend into this year.”

SANFORD — After a seventh place finish in the recent Holiday in the Pines basketball tournament at Pinecrest, the Southern Lee Cavaliers are looking to pick up right where they left off. Prior to the holiday tournament, the Cavaliers got out to a quick 3-0 start in Cape Fear Valley Conference play and they will be looking to extend that winning streak when they battle Overhills at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in Sanford. Southern Lee has not lost a conference game since December of 2008. The Cavaliers have also won the last three Cape Fear Valley Conference tournaments. But Southern Lee coach Gaston Collins isn’t dwelling on the past. Instead, he’s focusing on now. With a win against Overhills, the Cavaliers could move to 4-0 in the conference which could give them some breathing room over Union Pines. “Our goal is to just go out and play as hard as we can to win the game,” said Collins. “We’re at the top of the league by a game and we’re just focusing on doing everything that we need to do to stay there.” Overhills also participated in the Holiday in the Pines Tournament in Southern Pines and finished in sixth place, one spot ahead of the Cavaliers. Collins had a chance to see the Jaguars in action on two of the three nights of the tournament. “They’ve got five guys on their team that can shoot the ball very well,” said Collins. “They are all capable of scoring and putting up big numbers. They also play extremely hard all the way to the end. It’s going to be quite a battle for us.” The upcoming schedule, however, is pretty tough, but Collins remains optimistic. “We’ve got a tough stretch of games coming up,” said Collins. “We can’t afford to take a game off. We have to play our best in every game if we want to stay at the top of the conference.”

Cavaliers looking to extend CFV streak

Carolina Panthers’ Julius Peppers (90) was noncommittal about the future after a win 23-10 over the Saints on Sunday. Quarterback Jake Delhomme declared he wants to redeem himself and coach John Fox was silent. The team gathered for a meeting Monday, then scattered for the offseason with questions aplenty.

CHARLOTTE — Julius Peppers was noncommittal about the future, Jake Delhomme declared he wants to redeem himself and John Fox was silent. The Carolina Panthers gathered for an early morning meeting Monday, then scattered for the offseason with questions aplenty. While Fox canceled his end-ofseason news conference after being peppered with questions about his future a day earlier, Peppers ended his silence when he was tracked down in the frigid players parking lot at Bank of America Stadium. Only the five-time Pro Bowl pick and the NFL’s highest-paid player this season had little to say as he heads into free agency a year after publicly

declaring he wanted to play elsewhere. Peppers also declined to weigh in on Fox, whose contract hasn’t been extended past 2010. Fox refused to say on Sunday if he wants to return as a possible lame-duck coach next season, even with a salary of more than $6 million. “I really don’t have any information on Fox’s future around here. I really don’t have any thoughts that I want to share on it right now,” Peppers said. “In a couple of days I’ll have a little more information and a little more things to tell you about my future around here.” Delhomme’s future is cloudy, too, but his intentions aren’t after a miserable season.

Yesh named A-Sun Player of Week BUIES CREEK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; After nearly averaging a double-double and leading Campbell to its first 3-0 Atlantic Sun start since 200506, junior forward Lauren Yesh has been announced as the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Player of the Week. Yesh averaged 14.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per game during the Lady Camelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 2-0 week, that included a 30-point win over Winston-Salem State and a grinding 75-72 thriller over USC Upstate on the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesh is really being a great leader for our team,â&#x20AC;? said head coach Wanda Watkins of her team captain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had some good games, and it was great to see her put together back to back performances like she did.

Roadshow Starts Tomorrow in Sanford!

By Jason Delong

Treasure Hunters Roadshow STAFF WRITER

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Modern day gold rush as precious metal prices soar due to weak economy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sellers market.â&#x20AC;? says Archie Davis Roadshow representative.

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to start your spring cleaning early this year. The Roadshow starts tomorrow in Sanford and is looking for anything old. Remember those matchbox cars you played with as a kid? You know the ones that have been stored away in the attic for the past 30 years. Well itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to dig â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em out along with any other forgotten treasures. You might be sitting on a small fortune and not even know it. Roadshow representative Archie Davis explains what the event is all about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance to sell just about anything

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you go to the Roadshow, you can cash-in your items for top dollar. Roadshow representatives will be available to assess and purchase your items at the Holiday Inn Express, Tuesday through Saturday in Sanford.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153; Treasure Hunters Roadshow has been in over 600 cities since 2001.â&#x20AC;? thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old and get a fair price. We host over 500 shows every year throughout the U.S. and Canada. Toys, dolls, trains, pocket watches, old advertising signs, gold jewelry, coins just about anything can be sold at the Roadshow. This event is popular because it puts money in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pockets. At a typical show we will see hundreds of people during the ÂżYHGD\HYHQW:HZLOOVHHDIHZXQXVXDO items but mostly we will see a lot of old coins, gold jewelry, and a wide variety of antiques and collectibles. Last week at a show in Missouri a retired dentist walked in with over 5 lbs.. of dental JROG ÂżOOLQJV Âł, ZRXOG VD\ WKDW LV SUHWW\ unusual, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you?â&#x20AC;? says Davis. The gentlemen received over $10,000

IRUKLVJROGÂżOOLQJV7KHGHQWLVW told Davis that over the years he would keep the extracted teeth when the owners didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them. He would throw them in a jar and over the years it added up to over 5lbs of gold. Now not everybody has a jar of gold teeth lying around but according to Davis more than you might think have some sort of gold they can cash in. Davis says,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Roadshow receives a fair amount of gold each day of the 5 day event.â&#x20AC;? Broken jewelry, gold coins, dental gold are all valuable items with todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high gold prices. Archie Davis commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other top categories at the Roadshow would have to be silver dollars and other coins, pocket watches, and his personal favorite, old toys.â&#x20AC;? Davis told me a story about a visitor at

a recent Roadshow in Iowa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This elderly gentlemen walked into the show and asked if we were interested in old toys. The fellow must have been in his late seventies or early eighties. He said he kept all of the toys from his childhood and they were outside in his pickup. I walked outside and to my surprise his pickup was full of the coolest old toys I had ever

seen. Big old metal trucks, pedal cars, train sets, cast iron toys he had it all. We spent the next 3 hours going through his childhood. It was fun to listen to the stories he told about growing up and playing with the toys. He said one time he decided to play farmer in the garden and ended up digging up and ruining a fair number of vegetable plants. His folks were really mad and he said it was the longest summer he ever remembered working off the damage he had done. Back then the garden was a staple to every country family. His mom would can, jar and pickle the harvest to eat all winter. The vegetable plants were replaced and all ended well. I even think

I saw him wipe a tear toward the end of that story. All ended well that day as he ended up getting over $7000.00 for his old toys. His last comment to me was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well I guess its time to let em goâ&#x20AC;?

DEAR ABBY

BRIDGE HAND

Retired mom adopts daughter’s house as her full-time job

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Don’t worry about the little things this year. Focus on the larger picture and the rest will fall into place. Getting off track will be the problem, so stick to your game plan and finish what you start. Do your own fact-finding. Time is money and keeping the momentum going is your job. Your numbers are 5, 13, 17, 24, 27, 36, 43 ARIES (March 21-April 19): You will have to do a lot of troubleshooting in order to move forward. Don’t let minor setbacks stall your progress -bypass such occurrences. Be smart, act fast and don’t leave any room for error. 3 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Show what you have to offer and how you can be of service to someone who can alter your current position. Network and take part in events that interest you. Combining travel and talks will promote love and romance. 5 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put your time and effort into building a healthy financial position. Saving may not be your thing but right now you have to stick to a budget. Someone who is money smart will present a good investment plan. Don’t be shortsighted. 2 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t waste time trying to spare feelings or save someone from disappointment. Discuss issues swiftly, accurately and without sugarcoating any existing problems. Being upfront will spare you grief later. A romantic gesture will help ease some of your stress. 4 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make professional changes that allow you greater freedom to pursue something that really interests you. Sticking to an old goal will help to lower your stress and give you something to look forward to. Success is ahead of you if you work hard now. 3 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have the stamina

WORD JUMBLE

and know-how to master any pitfalls you face. Romance will play an important role in helping you get what you want. Your kind gestures and sincere concern for others will provide the help you need. 3 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will face major opposition if you are vocal or you try to get someone to do things your way. Listen and observe. Focus on your own creative endeavors instead of getting in the middle of someone else’s battle. 3 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t hold back introducing something a little unique that you feel can set you apart from anyone else with a similar idea. Your dedication, loyalty and creative imagination will help you come out on top. 4 stars SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t forget about what actually counts. If you disappoint someone who has helped you in the past, you will lose help in the future. Keep things simple and affordable and don’t break promises you have made. 2 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You have to act if you want to make the most of a good situation. There is money to be made, deals to be negotiated and contracts to be signed. You’ve done the groundwork, now prepare to reap the rewards. 5 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You have to work on problems that develop before anyone catches on to what’s happening. Keep your interests safe and quiet from those who may cause trouble for you. A partnership can work if you share the same mindset. 3 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Form a good, working relationship with someone with enough clout to help you move to the next level. Consider making a lifestyle change that will fit into your future plans better than your current situation. Stop fighting against the odds. 3 stars

DEAR ABBY: My mom has recently retired and is spending a lot of time at our home. She’s constantly doing things -- emptying the washer, drying dishes. Anything that is untouched for a few minutes she’ll get into. She also reorganizes our drawers and cabinets and thinks her way is best. She even remakes the children’s beds, which is part of their chores. She feels a bed needs to “air” for an hour after its occupant wakes up. When I tell her she doesn’t need to do it, she says she doesn’t mind -- but she’s missing the point. Mom is hurt because she feels I don’t appreciate her, and I am hurt that she doesn’t respect my rules. I’m grateful for everything she does, but I would like her to visit with her grandchildren and enjoy her retirement while she’s at our home. What should I do? — FRUSTRATED IN AUDUBON, PA. DEAR FRUSTRATED: The problem isn’t that your mother doesn’t respect your rules. I suspect it’s that she has worked all her life and isn’t used to being idle. She may also feel so at home in your house that she automatically behaves as though she were in hers. Have a chat with her and try to reach a compromise. Your drawers and cabinets should be off limits, and the children should be permitted to fulfill their chores. But if emptying the washer and drying the

dishes makes her happy, let her do it and thank her for her efforts. Your mother appears to be full of energy and have a lot of time on her hands. So why not encourage her to volunteer some of it at her church, a thrift store or a charity of her choosing? It will help her develop outside interests, meet new people and form some new friendships -- all of which will allow her less time to be “helping” you. o DEAR ABBY: My father died last year. Shortly after his funeral I sold his car to a friend in need for $200. Her husband let it slip a couple of days ago that they had discovered a cane tucked beneath the front seat with more than $300 stuffed inside. The bills had rotted, but they were able to take them to the bank and exchange them for new ones. They

DEAR FUMING: You call these people friends? This isn’t a matter of what would be right under the law. If they were true friends, they would have told you they had found the cane, in case it had sentimental value -- and offered you the contents as well. o DEAR ABBY: When someone I’m talking to starts to cry in front of me, I never know what to do. I often feel helpless. Should I hug the person? I usually end up just sitting there waiting for them to collect themselves. How can I comfort someone like this? — FEELING HELPLESS IN FLORIDA DEAR FEELING HELPLESS: Unless you know someone well, I do not recommend hugging. However, if there’s a tissue available, it would be a kindness to hand it over and tell the person you’re sorry he or she is hurting and if he or she needs to talk, you’re willing to listen.

ODDS AND ENDS 4-ton statue stolen from Utah motorcycle shop LINDON, Utah (AP) — Police say thieves must’ve used heavy equipment to make off with a 4-ton statue mounted outside a Utah motorcycle shop. Lindon Police Chief Cody Cullimore says a back-hoe or a crane likely was required to move the $100,000 sculpture depicting an old-time speed racer. Employees discovered it was missing from the Timpanogos Harley-Davidson store in Lindon, where it had been erected two years ago. Store manager Kandi Zamora says the granite block on which it was mounted also was missing.

Police: Ohio woman hit window over lack of nuggets TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Police say an Ohio woman punched through a McDonald’s drive-through window because Chicken McNuggets weren’t available. Police were called Friday to the restaurant in Toledo. Police say 24-year-old Melodi Dushane was treated for injuries, then jailed. She pleaded not guilty to a vandalism charge. She was released on a recognizance bond and ordered not to have contact with the restaurant. The phone number for her home address isn’t listed.

Dad nabbed in kidnapping prank involving daughter COVINGTON, La. (AP) — A Louisiana father and his 12-year-old daughter were arrested for an alleged practical joke that startled motorists on an interstate highway: The father allegedly drove his pickup truck with the girl sitting in the passenger seat — bound and gagged with duct tape. Authorities booked 45-year-old Tim Williams of Lacombe with criminal mischief and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He was released on bond. His daughter was cited for criminal mischief and released to her uncle. Motorists called authorities Wednesday after seeing the phony kidnapping in progress. Several motorists boxed in Williams’ moving pickup on Interstate 12 near Covington until police caught up with them.

Police: Man locks up grandma to shoot fireworks ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities are accusing a man of locking up his sickly 86-year-old grandmother on New Year’s Day so he could go outside and light off fireworks. According to a criminal complaint, the 21-year-old locked his grandmother in her room about 15 minutes before midnight. The woman is on oxygen and has to take medication regularly for a congenital heart disease, but both the machine and medicine were located in the kitchen. The woman had to call police from a life alert system inside her bedroom because Leder allegedly wouldn’t let her out. See answer, page 2A

Learn faith from Mary Q: How much do you think Mary understood when Jesus was born? Do you think she realized who He was and what would happen to Him when He grew up? If so, it must have been very difficult for her. -- Mrs. A.C. A: Mary understood from the beginning that God had chosen her to be the one through whom His Son would be born into the world. The angel’s announcement made this clear: “You will be with child and give birth to a son. ... He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High” (Luke 1:31-32). Did Mary understand what this meant? Did she realize that one day He would be nailed to a cross and shed His blood for our salvation, and then be raised from the dead and ascend into Heaven? The Bible doesn’t tell us in detail -- but it does suggest that she only gradually realized the full truth. For example, when Jesus was 12, He became separated from Mary and Joseph during a trip to Jerusalem. Later, they found Him in the Temple listening to the teachers of the Scriptures and asking them questions. He told Mary and Joseph that He needed to be there because it was His Father’s house, “But they did not understand what he was saying to them” (Luke 2:50). Surely Mary’s heart must have been breaking as she stood at the foot of the cross and watched Him die. Learn from Mary what it means to have faith -- faith in God’s Word, and faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior. Learn too from her what it means to follow Him, even when the future isn’t clear and the pathway seems dark. Ahead was the cross -- but also the empty tomb.
