Local history teachers, buffs join in school district’s opposition to the state’s proposed curriculum changes By CAITLIN MULLEN cmullen@sanfordherald.com

LEE COUNTY TURNS SEASON INTO A SUCCESS

The Yellow Jackets (9-13, 5-10) have won seven of their last eight games, including five straight league victories after Tuesday night’s 73-68 victory over Panther Creek, and have turned what once looked like a rebuilding season into one filled with much success in the second half

SANFORD — A history teacher’s subject is always changing. History is continually added to the books, and every

so often, adjustments need to be made to school curriculum. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction’s proposed changes to the social studies curriculum have sparked much debate among educators and the public.

Changes made would alter the curriculum for grades five through 11. Andy Bryan, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction

A woman tries to keep bundled up from strong winds as she makes her way to her car at Lowes Foods on Wednesday. All day, winds swirled and at times, reached up to 40 mph in some parts of the county, according to the National Weather Service. But almost miraculously, no major damage was reported locally. Lee County Emergency Management Director Shane Seagroves said winds in the area caused no property damage that he was aware of and only knocked over a few trees. “The strongest wind gusts we had were at about 6:05 a.m., and that was 41 mph,” he said. “Everything else was in the mid-30s. It may be that we dodged a bullet.”

SANFORD — Toyota’s muchpublicized recall has dealerships all over the country putting in overtime to get the problems — accelerator and braking issues in several models — fixed and to win back their customers’ trust. Toyota of Sanford has tacked on two hours at the end of each day indefinitely, according to General Manager Joe Wynns. Wynns sent a letter to customers this week in an effort to open up lines of communication with customers, provide recall information and thank them for their loyalty. “Our utmost priority is to get the recall repairs done as quickly and responsibly as possible,” Wynns told The Herald Wednesday. “That’s our first priority ... and our people are on board and excited about the opportunity to fix this.” The dealership will remain open until 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and until 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Wynn said customers who come in regarding the “sticky pedal recall”

Almanac Today is Thursday, Feb. 11, the 42nd day of 2010. There are 323 days left in the year. This day in history: On Feb. 11, 1960, “Tonight Show” host Jack Paar stunned his audience by walking off the program in a dispute with NBC over its decision to censor an anecdote he’d quoted the night before having to do with a misunderstanding over the British term “W.C.” (short for “water closet,” or bathroom). Despite his very public resignation, Paar returned to the Tonight Show less than a month later. In 1812, Massachusetts Gov. Elbridge Gerry signed a re-districting law favoring his party — giving rise to the term “gerrymandering.” In 1858, a French girl, Bernadette Soubirous, reported the first of 18 visions of a lady dressed in white in a grotto near Lourdes. (The Catholic Church later accepted that the visions were of the Virgin Mary.) In 1861, President-elect Abraham Lincoln departed Springfield, Ill. for Washington. In 1929, the Lateran Treaty was signed, with Italy recognizing the independence and sovereignty of Vatican City. In 1937, a six-week-old sit-down strike against General Motors ended, with the company agreeing to recognize the United Automobile Workers Union. In 1945, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Soviet leader Josef Stalin signed the Yalta Agreement during World War II.

4A / Thursday, February 11, 2010 / The Sanford Herald

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

‘Ask the superintendent’ a good start Our View Issue: Lee County Schools’ recent addition of an “Ask the Superintendent” tab on its Web site

Our stance: More interact between the school district, parents and the community in general should be a positive

We applaud any government entity when it improves the way it communicates with the public; so we’re pleased to see the new “Ask the Superintendent” button on the district’s Web site (http:// lee.schoolfusion.us/ ... look down the left-hand rail). Clicking the link takes you to a question form, and Superintendent Jeff Moss says he’ll try to respond to each question within 48 hours. That could be a daunting task ... if there’s one thing that gets our readers buzzing, it’s the schools. We can only imagine the time he’ll have to put into it when big issues (history curriculum, tax referendums, scheduling) come

up. The point, according to Moss, is to allow the public to get questions answered directly by him and provide information that is “factually based.” In other words, it’s best to get it straight from the horse’s mouth. Again, kudos to Moss for this step in reaching out to the public. And yes, it’s via e-mail, but we live in a time when this is the most instant form of communication, particularly between the public and a governing body. There isn’t enough time for everybody to get their say in meetings, answering numerous phone calls can be time consuming (though more personal) and while an

open-door policy is nice, the public doesn’t always have time to go visit the superintendent. This is a good idea, and if Moss follows through on his promise to answer all questions in a timely manner, the community will be better for it. It’s important, too, that the district be more aggressive in getting the information out. When laptops and scheduling issues do arise, don’t rely on take-home surveys and parent complaints to be what gets the public buzzing. Being up front to begin with will lessen the need for an “Ask the Superintendent” button ... something we think the district would appreciate.

Changing history

T

here’s certainly nothing wrong with advocates for the poor invoking the phrase social justice. Then again, I’m not quite sure what the words mean. OK, I get that those who speak of social justice generally are talking about equal opportunity, be it economic or something broader. And again, nothing wrong with that for those out there in the fray, pushing the public debate regarding how individual opportunity should be expanded, how policy and law can create level playing fields. But where does opportunity for some damage opportunity for others? These kinds of questions are often at the core of public policy debates. Look at the health care debate going on right now. Some families, through no fault of their own, face personal bankruptcy because of catastrophic health problems. Others largely satisfied with health care and health insurance don’t want benefits taxed or to otherwise see their economic opportunities diminish as a part of a national response. Meanwhile, the rising cost of medical care and its effect on government subsidized Medicaid and Medicare may mean diminished opportunities for our children and grandchildren. So, someone might speak of social justice regarding health care reform. That doesn’t mean that you or I are going to interpret the meaning the same way. Why all the waxing philosophical about invocations of social justice? The phrase shows up three times in a proposal to reconfigure the U.S. history curriculum in North Carolina public schools. The idea has conservatives up in arms because, as it exists right now, the plan would have 11th-graders study the nation’s history from after Reconstruction Era to the present day, from 1877 forward. In other words, no founding fathers, no Monroe Doctrine, No Louisiana Purchase, no Civil War. Currently, 11th-graders take a survey course that covers the country’s entire history. The plan would have 7th graders take a comprehensive U.S. history course. Right now, middle-grade students study world and North Carolina history. Public school officials say the end result would actually be more U.S. history instruction, not less. The intent, they say, isn’t to focus less on the founding fathers and the ideals that led to America’s founding, but to provide more in-depth study of larger themes. Perhaps. But using squishy terms filled with political connotations — rather than meaningful phrases such as “civil rights” and “equal protection under the law” — doesn’t instill much confidence. I don’t doubt that high school students would benefit from in-depth study of the civil rights movement. Many student never learn of significant events that happened in their own communities. But wouldn’t students also profit from examining the ideas of the founders, and the origins of the ideas that led to country’s founding?

LETTERS Media not doing enough to attract people to Temple Theatre To the Editor: I had the great privilege of attending “Blood Done Sign My Name” at Temple Theater last Sunday. The production was the best that I have seen in the five years that I have lived here in Lee County. It was both very entertaining and thought provoking in a profound way. I frankly believe that it should be required viewing for everyone living here. The Sunday performance was sold out; unfortunately all of the other performances weren’t. I believe that he only reason for this is that the publicity did not begin to do justice to the performance. If the people in this county realized the superb quality of this work, it would have easily sold out for all of the performances. I know that Peggy Taphorn did all she could to publicize it, but she can’t do it all by herself. We need the local press, radio, cable TV, churches and all of the civic organizations in the community to step up to the plate to encourage their listeners and members to take advantage of the wonderful community asset that we have in Temple Theater. I would express my gratitude to Peggy for bringing “Blood Done Sign My Name” to Sanford. I hope that she will consider bringing it back again for another run in the near future. ANDREW E. MANHARDT Sanford

Are our elected officials telling us the truth? To the Editor:

No act of charity A

nyone sitting in a dank, fetid Haitian jail for any reason probably deserves at least a measure of sympathy, so in that sense I feel sorry for the Baptist missionaries from Idaho charged with kidnapping 33 “orphans” and trying to take them out of the country. But what the do-gooders allegedly did was not just misguided. It could be criminal, and Haitian authorities are right to hold them accountable. Eugene Robinson Even in the midst of a terrible natural diColumnist saster, spiriting away a busload of kids in that Eugene Robinson is a columnist with the manner — with vague plans to worry about Washington Post Writers Group the “paperwork” later — is no act of charity.

Fox News recently announced that the Social Security fund is virtually defunct. It is paying out more than it’s taking in. According to Fox, the federal government has taken that money and spent it elsewhere and now doesn’t have the funds to replace it. If this is true, isn’t the federal government guilty of embezzlement, fraud, grand larceny, misappropriation of funds, etc.? After all, it’s our money — not theirs. This reminds me of a letter I wrote some time ago to The Herald. It was titled “Is the Social Security Fund a cash drawer filled with IOUs?” I wrote that letter based upon a face-to-face conversation I had with Rep. Bob Etheridge here in Sanford a few years earlier. My first question to Mr. Etheridge was, “Why has Congress raided the Social Security Fund and spent the money elsewhere?” Mr. Etheridge responded, “Congress has not raided the fund. We only temporarily transferred the interest on the fund to be used on other programs.” My next question was, “When are you going to put it back?” I received no response. Someone is not telling the truth. I urge the readers, taxpayers and voters in Lee County and Sanford to contact Rep. Etheridge, Sen. Hagan and Sen. Burr to find out who is telling the truth and who is not. Simply ask them to produce objective, documented evidence that Fox News is wrong. I plan to ... will you please do the same? RUSSELL B.

Census 2010 a way to temporarily help jobless To the Editor: Tamara Brogan recently had a letter published entitled “Failures on the part of local leadership.” In that letter, she talks about the large amount of unemployment and lack of job prospects for Lee County. From much media coverage both in newspapers and TV, there are good temporary jobs that start about March of this year. What job prospects? As I understand it, Census 2010 workers are paid $13.50 per hour and up to 40 hours of work per week. A brochure says they pay for training and pay for mileage. Published figures indicate 24,000 jobs that must be filled. For those either underemployed, out of work or just need extra money ... check it out. To me, the best thing is to research it out on your computer and just “Google It” for Census 2010. DONNA WILBERG Sanford

for Lee County Schools, informed the Lee County Board of Education of the proposed changes at Tuesday night’s meeting. Social studies teachers said it can be hard to draft the perfect curriculum. “What we’re trying to do is so difficult with the time that we have,� said Ricky Secor, social studies department chair at West Lee Middle School. “We want our kids to understand the world but we also want them to understand the United States.� Fifth grade social studies currently teaches U.S., Canadian, Mexican and Central American history. Proposed changes would focus on major U.S. history. Sixth grade social studies would teach more on world civilization from the beginning of human society to the 1700s, instead of the current emphasis on South America and Europe. Seventh grade now focuses on Africa, Asia and Australia. Proposed changes would teach North Carolina and U.S. history, and its connection to the world, from the 1600s to about 1970. Eighth grade history now focuses on North Carolina development and creation. Proposed changes would have it focus more on global community perspective concentrating on events from 1950 to the present. Ninth grade history now focuses on world history. Proposed changes would teach

from more of a global, 21st century perspective like world issues, culture and U.S. and global connections. Tenth grade history currently looks at civics and economics and proposed changes would involve teaching larger concepts within that subject and providing more of an updated focus. Eleventh grade currently teaches general U.S. history; proposed changes would teach students U.S. history from 1877 to the present. The proposed changes will continue to be refined before the state Board of Education considers them later this year, according to a DPI press release. The Lee County Board of Education decided to send DPI a letter voicing the board’s concern over the effect the proposed changes could have on students’ education. Board Vice Chairman Lynn Smith said the changes could limit the scope of history. Facebook group “Say ‘NO’ to North Carolina’s U.S. History Curriculum

U.S. history 1877-present

Change� garnered 239 members Wednesday afternoon. Many are upset that the changes could take away from high school history education. “I understand the argument put forth,� said Troy Kickler, director of the North Carolina History Project, “but I’m worried about the relegation of an important part of our history to the elementary years. ... I’m worried that if it’s only taught in the fourth grade and the seventh grade, they will walk away with a minimal understanding.� Kickler, a Sanford resident who has taught U.S. history at the University of Tennessee and North Carolina State University, said elementary-age children can understand facts and dates, but don’t do well with abstract concepts, like themes of war. “Human beings, as they grow older, are capable of thinking more and more abstractly,� he said. “I’m afraid there will be a big disconnect� for younger students.

Trisha Furrie, social studies department chair at Southern Lee High School, said her department is “not too happy� about the proposed changes. “There’s a large area of history there the students won’t be getting,� she said. And though certain history is introduced at earlier ages, “by the time we get them in the eleventh grade, they’ve forgotten it. None of us are very happy about the situation. It does the students a disservice by cutting out anything prior to 1877.� After DPI made changes to the curriculum several years ago, Furrie said, it moved early American history, including colonial America and the Revolutionary War, to the tenth grade civics and economics class, where they have very little time to spend on the early history. The U.S. history class currently begins at 1789, she said. “When they get to us, we start with Washington’s first term,� she said. “It should all be in the same class. It’s unbelievable.� Steve Underwood, social studies department chair at Lee County High School, said he doesn’t care for DPI’s approach to changing the curriculum. “The best success we’ve ever had was when U.S. history was a two-semester course,� he said. Underwood also said civics could be moved to twelfth grade and U.S. history could be offered as two separate courses — splitting history at the Reconstruction Era — in the tenth and eleventh grades. “I don’t think that

there’s really a good answer,� he said. “To teach more in depth, you’ve got to be sure they’ve had this other material� in the earlier grades. Plus, he added, history and science often fall by the wayside when it comes to teaching students what they need to know for tests; reading and math tend to be more important, and Underwood said he completely understands this. But if this happens at the earlier grade levels, students could lose out on critical history information that’s needed in later social studies classes, he said. “There’s an assumption that they’re going to have this wonderful base of knowledge. I would love to think that’s going to happen but I have my doubts,� he said. Secor said his staff all have varying opinions on the proposed changes because they teach different subjects. He said he can see both good and bad to the curriculum alterations. He added that it’s important for the public to remember teachers have to provide more information now that more time has passed. “We now have to teach Vietnam and the War on Terror,� he said. “It’s a longer amount of years in the same amount of time.� Furrie said teachers can express their concern over the proposed changes on DPI’s Web site, but “that’s pretty much all we can do.� Secor encourages department staff to send their comments to the central office. He said he hopes to learn more about the changes in an effort to understand the different viewpoints. “I want to know as much about it before I decide this is some huge, drastic change that changes everything,� he said.

should expect the process to take less than an hour. “It’s a very simply, very sound repair,� he added. In his letter, Wynns wrote his staff has the “tools and equipment necessary� to fix the pedal entrapment recall in Camrys. In addition, customers will receive a free car wash and discount coupons for future work if they bring in a recalled vehicle. “Our customers have relayed to us that they have total confidence in their cars, and they’ve been very patient,� Wynns said. “Their response has been nothing short of remarkable.� Wynns’ letter is part of a national effort on Toyota’s part to win customers back. Toyota has been encouraging dealers to contact local members of Congress.

There’s room at the park for between 4,000 and 4,500 of the bricks, Shaw said. “If we could sell them all, that would be pretty sweet,� he said. “We’re getting pretty close to the limit of our funds, and it would be a shame for this project to have to go on hold because we don’t have enough money.� Also available are “patron donor� bricks, which are 8 inches by 8 inches. The minimum donation for these is $500. The city adopted a similar approach to helping fund improvements at Depot Park in downtown Sanford. Shaw said progress at the park is moving along steadily. “The weather lately has been a problem, obviously,� Shaw said. “But just (Tuesday) we had a delivery of the bricks for the main column, and we’re moving forward as we can.�

TESTING INNOCENCE

STATE BRIEFS 2 SC sisters killed, mother injured in N.C. wreck

Two in plant permit scheme get prison sentences

MEBANE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Two sisters from South Carolina have died after another driver hit their motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stalled car on an interstate in North Carolina. The N.C. Highway Patrol told multiple media outlets that 9year-old Mequea Spears and 5-year-old Aiysha Spears of Bennettsville, S.C., were killed Tuesday when a Ford Explorer rear-ended their motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Honda Civic. Authorities say the Civic was stalled on westbound Interstate 85 near Mebane. The girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mother, 31-yearold Andrea L. Purvis, and an 8-year-old child in her car were taken to hospitals for treatment. The driver of the Explorer, 52-year-old John Dieter of Durham, N.C., was treated at the scene. Troopers say they do not plan to charge him. All three children were in child or booster seats.

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Two former investors in a never-built ethanol plant in Beaufort County each received 2 1/2 years in prison Wednesday for scheming to give a state environmental regulator nearly $200,000 to speed up the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s air quality permit. U.S. District Judge Terrence Boyle sentenced David Lee Brady, 76, of Raleigh and former Wake Forest Mayor James Albert Perry Jr., 62, in federal court. Each had pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to commit extortion last June after they were indicted on multiple counts in late 2008. The two men acknowledged in court documents they had agreed to give $196,000 in cash and consulting fees to former state environmental regulator Boyce Allen Hudson. They had worked with Hudson in 2004 to get permits accelerated for the $220 million plant proposed by Agri-Ethanol Products LLC. Brady and Perry both had a one-third share in the company. Helping move projects through the regulatory process isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t inherently wrong unless people who do so are on the take, U.S. Attorney George Holding said in an interview following the hearing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the past eight years weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen corruption in all forms and fashions,â&#x20AC;? said Holding, whose office has prosecuted former state House Speaker Jim Black and U.S. Rep. Frank Ballance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Corruption undermines the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trust and confidence in their elected officials.â&#x20AC;?

School launches program to help pay for college

GREENSBORO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A North Carolina university is launching a program designed to offer financial and academic aid which will help eligible students graduate with little or no debt. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is starting the UNCG Guarantee. The first scholars in the program will begin in fall 2010. It is being created through UNCGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $6 million gift from an anonymous donor who in 2009 gave gifts to several American universities. Phase One of the program will provide support for 30 to 40 first-year students. With current resources, it is expected that the program can initially fund up to 140 scholars over four years. The UNCG Guarantee is modeled after the Carolina Covenant at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which was launched in 2003. N.C. State has a similar program.

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A state agent should not have omitted results of follow-up blood tests from his lab report, and other officials were wrong with they testified that blood was found on the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s truck, a blood expert testified Wednesday at a special hearing to determine if a man convicted of murder will go free. Tom Bevel, a blood splatter expert and professor at the University of Central Oklahoma, testified before a threejudge panel hearing the case of Greg Taylor that the first tests, or presumptive tests, of substances believed to be blood came back positive on two items. So the agent, Duane Deaver, conducted follow-up, or confirmatory tests. Those results came back negative, Bevel said, analyzing and interpreting Deaverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lab notes. A presumptive test can bring a false-positive for items such as vegetation or heavy metals, he said. But those negative results werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t included in the lab report that Deaver filed, Bevel said. And agents with the City-County Bureau of Investigation, who testified at trial that tests showed the presence of blood, should have

Traditional Metal Braces â&#x20AC;˘ Invisible Ceramic Braces â&#x20AC;˘ InvisalignÂŽ FREE COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATION

clarified that they based their statements on the presumptive tests. Both the agents and Deaver were wrong, Bevel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You report what the results are, positive or negative,â&#x20AC;? he said of Deaver. And of the CCBI agentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; trial testimony, he said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you get a negative, you cannot say you have blood.â&#x20AC;? If Taylor killed Thomas, then blood should have been found on his vehicle or clothing, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blood is uncontrollable,â&#x20AC;? Bevel said. Wake County Assistant District Attorney Tom Ford cross-examined Bevel, yelling at the witness at least once. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not following you,â&#x20AC;? Bevel said to a question. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not following you,â&#x20AC;? Ford shouted back, standing at the witness stand. Superior Court Judge Howard Manning indicated his impatience with the trialâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slow pace, interrupting Ford at one point to say: â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of two things is possible,â&#x20AC;? he said about the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body position. Either she moved herself before she died or someone moved

her, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What more is there to say?â&#x20AC;? asked the judge, who looked at his watch, turned his back to the courtroom and closed his eyes during Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s questioning. The judges are hearing testimony about Taylor, whose case was forwarded by the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission. He was sentenced to life in 1993 for the murder of a prostitute in Raleigh and has maintained his innocence since his arrest. Taylor broke down on the stand when attorney Joe Cheshire asked him to tell the judges about the effect of his crack cocaine addiction on his family. Speaking so softly that he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be heard through his tears, Taylor said when he was using crack he lacked interest in anything else: â&#x20AC;&#x153;No food, no water, no relationships. Nothing to consider except that next hit.â&#x20AC;? Earlier Wednesday, Taylor took the stand again for day two of cross-examination by Ford, who prosecuted Taylor at trial.

for aide RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A federal judge set a tentative April start date Wednesday for the corruption trial of an ex-aide to former North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley, saying prompt resolution was in the best interests of Ruffin Poole and the government. District Judge Terrence Boyle laid out a schedule for the trial to begin the week of April 26 during a hearing attended by Poole, his defense attorney and lawyers for the government. Earlier this week, Poole defense attorney Joe Zeszotarski wrote in a motion that he would prefer an August start date because of the mountain of government evidence he has to go through, combined with responsibilities for other clients. But Boyle sought to pace the case more quickly than even the U.S. Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, which had suggested a May 17 start in a motion filed last week.

NATION BRIEFS

Woman faced financial woes before trip By REBECCA BOONE Associated Press Writer

BOISE, Idaho â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In the days after the Haiti earthquake, Laura Silsby made a series of calls around the country to mobilize a trip to rescue orphaned children from the disaster. She enlisted members of her Baptist church and told them she had all the necessary paperwork. She even found a Kentucky couple, Richard and Malinda Pickett, who had been trying to adopt three siblings from Haiti and told them she could get the children out. The Picketts say they politely declined, figuring the youngsters were safe and would soon be evacuated to their new home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My wife told her that under no conditions should she try to move the kids â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that would just interfere with our plans. But she called two more times, and the last time she called, on the 25th, she said she was getting on a flight and would like to pick up our kids,â&#x20AC;? Richard Pickett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My wife, for the third time, told her no way â&#x20AC;&#x201D; stay away from them.â&#x20AC;?

Laura Silsby, one of the 10 Americans arrested while trying to bus children out of Haiti, exits a police car outside the court building in Port-au-Prince. A few days later, Silsby and nine other Americans were charged in Haiti with kidnapping for trying to take 33 children out of the country without proper documentation. The 10 defendants remain in jail in Haiti. The Haitian and U.S. governments are investigating Silsby and her group, trying to determine why they were rounding up children, many of whom were not orphans. Silsby and her supporters say they just wanted to save youngsters from the chaos, disease and uncertainty of quake-ravaged Haiti. Others, like the Picketts,

arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t convinced. A closer look at Silsby shows that the adoption fiasco followed a certain pattern seen in her life. The 40-year-old businesswoman and mother of three has been known to make big promises and big plans that often give way to questionable behavior and legal action. Court records show she has a habit of failing to pay employees, creditors and taxes. In the last year alone saw her home go into foreclosure and watched a number of legal proceedings against her and her business wend their way through Idahoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s courts.

The Lee County Board of Commissioners is currently accepting applications to serve on the Board of Equalization and Review for a 3-year term. Applications may be obtained on line at leecountync.gov or by contacting Clerk to the Board Gaynell Lee at 718-4605 Ext. 5507. Applications will be accepted through February 19, 2010. Applicants must be available to attend meetings during business work hours. N.C. Gen Stat 105-312 empowers the Board of Commissioners to delegate to the Board of Equalization and Review the right to compromise, settle, or adjust the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim for taxes resulting from property discovered upon petition of the taxpayer in appropriate circumstances.

All of this happened as she became highly passionate about helping kids in the Dominican Republic, according to those who know her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She had explained that she felt absolutely driven in her heart to open an orphanage in the Dominican Republic,â&#x20AC;? said Nancy Batteen, owner of a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-hand clothing store in Boise where Silsby shopped. Silsby showed her knack for achievement early, earning a high school diploma at 15, according to an old news release from her company. She went on to study business administration and accounting at Washington State University, graduating summa cum laude in 1991. She took a job with Hewlett Packard in Boise, working for six years in financing and Internet marketing positions. In 2000, Silsby and a man named James Hammons patented a method for creating and operating a personalized Internet store. She used the method to found a company that would do business under the name Avenue Me. The goal, Silsby told associates, was to create an online personalized shopping experience for those too busy to dig through several stores or Web sites.

Former Texas Rep. Charlie Wilson dies at 76

New aerial NYPD photos of 9/11 attack released

DALLAS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Charlie Wilson, the former congressman from Texas whose funding of Afghanistanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resistance to the Soviet Union was chronicled in the movie and book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Charlie Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s War,â&#x20AC;? died Wednesday. He was 76. Wilson died at Memorial Medical Center-Lufkin after he started having difficulty breathing while attending a meeting in the eastern Texas town where he lived, said hospital spokeswoman Yana Ogletree. Wilson was pronounced dead on arrival, and the preliminary cause of death was cardiopulmonary arrest, she said. Wilson represented the 2nd District in east Texas in the U.S. House from 1973 to 1996 and was known in Washington as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good Time Charlieâ&#x20AC;? for his reputation as a hard-drinking womanizer. He once called former congresswoman Pat Schroeder â&#x20AC;&#x153;Babycakes,â&#x20AC;? and tried to take a beauty queen with him on a government trip to Afghanistan. Actor Tom Hanks portrayed Wilson in the 2007 movie about Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to arm Afghan mujahedeen during Afghanistanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s war against the Soviet Union in the 1980s. Wilson, a member of the House Appropriations Committee, helped secure money for weapons, plunging the U.S. into a risky venture against the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other superpower. In an interview with The Associated Press after the book was published in 2003, he

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Newly released aerial photos of the World Trade Center terror attack capture the towersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dramatic collapse, from just after the first fiery plane strike to the apocalyptic dust clouds that spread over lower Manhattan and its harbor. The images were taken from a police helicopter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the only photographers allowed in the air space near the towers on Sept. 11, 2001. They were obtained by ABC News after it filed a Freedom of Information Act request last year with the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which investigated the collapse. The chief curator of the planned Sept. 11 museum, which is compiling a digital archive of attack coverage, said the still images are â&#x20AC;&#x153;a phenomenal body of workâ&#x20AC;? that show a new, wide-angle look at the towersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; collapse and the gray dust clouds that shrouded the city afterward.

Obama, black leaders focus on economic times

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Prominent African-American leaders pressed President Barack Obama on Wednesday to pursue an economic agenda that includes targeted help for blacks, whose unemployment rate is much higher than the national average and nearly twice that of whites. The three men who met privately with Obama for about an hour said they pushed for aid in urban and rural areas with large numbers of hurting minorities. It is the same message they hope to deliver to lawmakers of both parties as Congress considers new jobs legislation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do not seek any special kind of edict ... from the president because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s African-American,â&#x20AC;? said the Rev. Al Sharpton, president of the National Action Network, a civil rights organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expect to be included in the process.â&#x20AC;? The meeting yielded no announcements or initiatives, although the leaders said they mainly wanted Obama to hear their message, and they professed confidence that he did.

Leno thanks Letterman for ad invite By DAVID BAUDER AP Television Writer

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jay Leno has a message for David Letterman: Thanks. Leno said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;whatever happened in the last 18 years disappearedâ&#x20AC;? when the two comics got together to film their surprise Super Bowl ad last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was very gracious,â&#x20AC;? Leno said Monday on his prime-time show, which ends Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talked about the old days. We told some jokes. It was really good to see him.â&#x20AC;? Lettermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bitterness at losing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonightâ&#x20AC;? show job to Leno nearly two decades ago has long been obvious to his CBS viewers. Leno is a frequent target of Lettermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jokes, which escalated during last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drama over Leno reclaiming the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonightâ&#x20AC;? show.

AP photo

In an file photo from video provided by CBS, David Letterman, Oprah Winfrey and Jay Leno, from right, record a promo for CBSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Late Showâ&#x20AC;? that aired during the Leno returned fire when the jokes got particularly rough. It was a perfect setup for the Super Bowl promo. A grumpy Letterman complained to Oprah Winfrey about being at a lousy Super Bowl party, and the camera panned back to reveal Leno on the other side of a couch,

saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just saying that because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;No matter what animosity there is between comedians, a good joke is a good joke,â&#x20AC;? Leno said. Letterman, for his part, joked in his monologue about his mother wondering who it was sitting on the couch with Winfrey and Leno.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;People really thought this was big-time stuff, so I just want to take a second here now to thank the actors who played Oprah and also Jay Leno,â&#x20AC;? he said on his show Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They did a tremendous job.â&#x20AC;? Leno, a notorious workaholic, took a day off from his show to fly to New York to make the 15-second promo. He was driven to Lettermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s studio on a black SUV and hustled in, wearing a disguise. Leno said an NBC executive later approached him, saying the network believed Letterman was taping a secret show because someone entered the studio from a black SUV. NBC believed that Letterman was doing a show with President Barack Obama, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;keep me posted,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Leno said.

Lil Wayne sentencing postponed for dental reasons

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rap star Lil Wayne has gotten a temporary reprieve from jail â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for dental surgery. The Grammy Awardwinning rapperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sentencing in a New York City gun case was postponed Tuesday, because he needs to finish a string of recent surgeries before he goes

to jail. Lil Wayne, one of musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest sellers and rapâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hottest stars, is poised to spend as much as a year in jail under a plea deal, though good behavior could shave that to as little as eight months. Sentencing now is scheduled for March 2.

Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Charles Solomon said it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be put off any further. The diminutive rapper, his hair in dreadlocks, said nothing at a brief court session Tuesday afternoon. He left in a black SUV, flanked by fellow rapper Birdman and others.

Defense lawyer Stacey Richman said Lil Wayne was headed home to Miami for dental work Friday. She declined to specify his malady. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a medical situation that, like (it would for) any of us, has to be addressed,â&#x20AC;? she said outside court.

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; John Mayer is once again making news with his mouth, not his music. The Grammywinner gave an interview to the March edition of Playboy, Mayer and in it, he calls former girlfriend Jessica Simpson â&#x20AC;&#x153;sexual napalmâ&#x20AC;? and says Jennifer Aniston is a technophobe who wishes she could go back to her successful prime â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which he figures was 12 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still hoping it goes back to 1998. She saw my involvement in technology as courting distraction. And I always said, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;These are the new rules,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. Mayer spent a good part of the interview talking about how much he still loves Aniston, whom he dated off and on for about two years before they broke up for good last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very protective of Jen,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have you ever loved somebody, loved her completely, but had to end the relationship for life reasons?â&#x20AC;? Yet he also doles out what appear to be digs at Aniston, including stressing their age difference (she recently turned 41). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always be sorry that it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last.

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jillian Michaels has been sued for alleged false advertising by a woman who claims she was duped into buying a diet supplement endorsed by the celebrity trainer. Christie Christensen of Lake Elsinore, Calif., is seeking class-action status for the case she filed Tuesday in Los Angeles. Michaels is a hard-charging, no-nonsense trainer bestknown as one of the stars of NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hit reality show, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Biggest Loser.â&#x20AC;? Christensenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawsuit claims she bought a product called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jillian Michaels Maximum Strength Calorie Controlâ&#x20AC;? last month and that it has failed to lessen her appetite or cause her to lose weight as advertised.

Father of Sarah Palinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandson on Playgirl cover ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The teen father of Sarah Palinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandson is featured on the cover of the upcoming print version of Playgirl magazine â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sporting nothing but a sultry gaze. The nude photos of Levi Johnston â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the 19-yearold former fiance of Palinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were a huge hit last fall on the magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Web site. The publisher expects the same results with other photos from the same shoot running in the newly resurrected print version available Feb. 22 on newsstands. Johnston fathered a son with ex-fiance Bristol, the 19-year-old daughter of the former Republican vice presidential candidate who resigned as Alaskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governor last summer. The young couple broke up after the birth of their son, Tripp, in late 2008.

Angelina Jolie visits Haiti with UN refugee body JACMEL, Haiti (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Angelina Jolie met with Haitian earthquake survivors living in camps and visited a flattened school Wednesday, the second day of a visit as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; refugee agency. The actress, representing the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, flew by helicopter to the southern city of Jacmel where she visited a camp for Haitians made homeless. Some 500,000 people are living in camps around the country since the Jan. 12 earthquake. She also visited a school destroyed by the quake. ** Planet 51: PG (10:20), 12:20, 5:25 ** Planet 51: PG (10:20), 12:20, 5:25

BLIZZARD HITS EAST COAST

Enough already: Snow breaks mid-Atlantic records By NAFEESA SYEED Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Worst winter ever? The second blizzard in less than a week buried the most populous stretch of the East Coast under nearly a foot of snow Wednesday, breaking records for the snowiest winter and demoralizing millions of people still trying to dig out from the previous storm. Conditions in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital were so bad that even plows were advised to get off the roads, and forecasters were eyeing a third storm that could be brewing for next week. For many families, the first storm was a fun weekend diversion. People even went skiing past Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monuments. But Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blizzard quickly became a serious safety concern. The

Pennsylvania governor shut down some highways and warned that people who drove were risking their lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen enough,â&#x20AC;? said Bill Daly, 57, as gusts of wind and snow lashed his face in Arlington, Va., where streets were nearly empty just a few days after people had been playing

in the snow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scary and beautiful at the same time. I wanted to shovel but thought if I had a heart attack it could be a while before anybody found me in this kind of weather.â&#x20AC;? Old-timers talk about a storm that blew through Washington in 1922, collapsing the roof on the

Knickerbocker theater and killing more than 90 people. Their great-greatgrandchildren will be able to describe the back-toback blizzards of 2010, which were not nearly as deadly but set records for the snowiest winters ever in Washington and Baltimore. Up to 16 inches fell in parts of western Maryland. Reagan National Airport in Washington had nearly 10 inches by 2 p.m., and Baltimore got nearly a foot. That was on top of totals up to 3 feet in some places from the weekend storm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have never in my lifetime seen or heard anything quite like this,â&#x20AC;? said D.C. Fire Chief Dennis L. Rubin, who was born and raised in the District. The previous records for snowiest winters were 62.5 inches in Baltimore in 1995-96, and 54.4 inches in Washington in 1898-99. As of Wednesday after-

Airlines canceled hundreds of flights, and New York Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1.1 million schoolchildren enjoyed only their third snow day in six years. The District of Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two airports had no flights coming or going Wednesday. The streets of downtown Philadelphia, which was close to setting its own snow record, were nearly vacant as people heeded the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice to stay home. Entrance ramps to closed highways were blockaded, and the Pennsylvania National Guard

Gov. Ed Rendell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You will risk your life and, potentially, the lives of others if you get stuck on highways or any road.â&#x20AC;? In Virginia, where some areas had snow totals exceeding 30 inches from the two storms, winds were howling at 50 mph and temperatures were plunging. Gov. Bob McDonnell urged people to stay indoors.

VONN QUESTIONS WHETHER SHE’LL RACE

By RYAN SARDA sarda@sanfordherald.com

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Lindsey Vonn is worried a badly bruised right shin will keep her out of the Vancouver Olympics, a startling announcement so close to the start of an event shaping up as a showcase for the U.S. skiing star. Vonn revealed Wednesday that she was injured in a slalom training run Feb. 2 during pre-Olympic practice in Austria. It was her first trip down the slopes of what was supposed to be three days of practice. “I’m sitting here today questioning whether, you know, I’ll be even able to ski,” Vonn said at a news conference. “I have to play it by ear.” As a two-time reigning overall World Cup champion, the 25-year-old who lives and trains in Vail, Colo., has been considered a contender to win multiple medals. Asked whether she could be forced to sit out altogether, Vonn replied: “Yeah, that’s a possibility.” She hasn’t skied since getting hurt and said it’s even been painful to simply put on a pair of ski boots in her hotel room to test the leg. Vonn said the bruising covers about a 6-inch swath of her lower right leg — starting from where the top of a boot rests against her

NCAA HEELS LOSE TRAVIS WEAR TO ANKLE INJURY

CHAPEL HILL (AP) — North Carolina’s Travis Wear is out indefinitely with an ankle injury. The school says the 6-foot10 freshman sprained his left ankle when he landed on a teammate’s foot while grabbing a rebound during Tuesday’s practice. X-rays showed no fracture, but Wear is on crutches and will miss Wednesday night’s game against rival Duke. Wear is averaging about five points and four rebounds off the bench. He had become the first frontcourt player off the bench since 7-footer Tyler Zeller went down last month with a stress fracture in his foot.

MLB JETER LIKES YANKEES’ CHANCES TO REPEAT

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Derek Jeter likes the Yankees’ chance to repeat as World Series champions. Jeter took four weeks off after the postseason, then started indoor workouts. He began outdoor drills in mid-January and said Wednesday that “I like the team that we have.” Jeter is entering the final season of a $189 million, 10-year contract. He plans to address the topic after New York media arrives for spring training next week.

Jackets riding a hot streak to close season By RYAN SARDA sarda@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — The Lee County boys’ basketball team is rolling and head coach Reggie Peace is enjoying every second of it. At one point this season, Lee County had lost its first 10 Tri-9 Conference games and found itself looking up at the rest of the league in last place. Since then, the Yellow Jackets (9-13, 5-10) have won seven of

their last eight games, including five straight league victories after Tuesday night’s 73-68 victory over Panther Creek, and have turned what once looked like a rebuilding season into one filled with much success in the second half. “When we were struggling, the kids never put their heads down, never pouted and never sulked,” said Peace. “They have shown tremendous character

SANFORD — The Southern Lee Cavaliers had done what they’ve had to do. Then they had to play the waiting game. But they didn’t have to wait for long. With their 66-47 victory over Douglas Byrd in Tuesday night’s regular season finale, the Cavaliers guaranteed themselves at least a share of the Cape Fear Valley Conference championship, earning the regular season conference crown for the fourth straight season. “It’s a great feeling to accomplish what we’ve accomplished,” said Southern Lee head coach Gaston Collins. “More credit goes to the guys, though. They came in and bought into the system and executed. I’m proud of this team.” Westover (15-5, 9-2), a team that handed Southern Lee its only loss of the conference season, still had two games remaining entering Wednesday night. The Wolverines battled Union Pines in Cameron, but fell 49-46, handing the Cavaliers their fourth straight title. The Cavaliers (15-7, 11-1) were led by senior A.J. Jackson’s 18 points and five rebounds in their victory over Byrd. Darius Gill added 15 points and five boards. Shakeer Alston had eight points and also had five rebounds. Josh Mellette added six points, eight rebounds and three blocks. Also contributing for the Cavaliers was Ace Chalmers with six points, six assists and four rebounds. Darren Perry also scored six. During the coaches meeting, the Cavaliers will learn of their opponent in the first round of the conference tournament. “We’ve got to continue practicing and improving on the things that we haven’t been doing too well,” said Collins.

2B / Thursday, February 11, 2010 / The Sanford Herald NASCAR NOTES Patrick has no trouble in first Nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;wide practice DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Danica Patrick has taken the next step in her stock car racing education, staying out of trouble and learning as much as she can in her first NASCAR Nationwide series practice at Daytona International Speedway. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crew chief, Tony Eury Jr., says she was comfortable in the car Wednesday and did a good job handling the jump from ARCA to Nationwide. After finishing sixth in the Daytona ARCA race on Saturday, Patrick is preparing to make her Nationwide race debut Saturday. Patrick finished 26th on the speed chart. Eury said practice speeds arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t particularly important at Daytona because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t indicate how fast the car will be in the race.

Another Daytona wreck collects champ Johnson DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jimmie Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quest for a fifth straight NASCAR championship will begin in a backup car. Johnson was involved in the latest wreck at Daytona International Speedway on Wednesday, doing enough damage that crew chief Chad Knaus decided to scrap the primary car for Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season-opening race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just riding along and thought everything was fine, and the next thing you know, I was in the middle of it,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. Joey Logano also got caught up in the accident during the second practice at Daytona International Speedway. Mike Bliss triggered it when he lost control of his car coming out of a turn. Bliss turned sideways, seemingly got tapped by Derrick Cope, then shot across the track and rammed into Logano. Logano also was forced into a backup car. Kyle Busch weaved through the wreckage and avoided any damage.

BOYS BASKETBALL Yellow Jackets win for 7th time in last 8 CARY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to imagine any team wants to face the Lee County Yellow Jackets right now. After opening their Tri-9 Conference season winless through 10 games, Lee County has won seven of its last eight games overall, including five league contests. The Jackets continued their hot play with a come-from-behind 73-68 victory over Panther Creek on Tuesday night. Isaiah Williams led the Jackets (9-13, 5-10) with 19 points while his twin Israel added 13 points. Lee County trailed 41-27 at the half on the road, but used a 28-16 advantage in the fourth quarter to pick up the victory.

DAYTONA 500

500 may not be Waltripâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last race DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As Michael Waltrip prepared for what could be the final Daytona 500 of his career, he took exception when someone described him as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a pretty good driver.â&#x20AC;? Pretty good drivers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last 25 years at NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top level. Pretty good drivers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get two different opportunities to drive for Dale Earnhardt. Pretty good drivers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win two Daytona 500s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to let that go in my brain because I think I am at least a good driver,â&#x20AC;? Waltrip said Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m better than pretty good. I think what says a lot about my character and attitude is that when I lined up to run the 2001

Daytona 500 I was 0 for 462, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the record said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I was convinced that I was going to win that race. I believed in my heart that I had the tools, and I knew I had the ability to win that race. And I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know of very many people in this sport who could have lost 462 races and lined up in a car and driven to a win in their 463rd race.â&#x20AC;? The record book shows that Waltrip is 4 for 759, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not totally clear just how many races will be added to that total. Faced with a decision to prolong his driving career or focus on the continued growth of Michael Waltrip Racing, he had to think of the betterment of his race team. It meant turning his car

over to free agent Martin Truex Jr., and scaling back into a much more limited schedule. Only sponsorship didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t develop the way Waltrip had hoped, and he headed into the season with only the season-opening Daytona 500 secure on his schedule. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s since put together a deal that will likely allow him to race at Talladega Superspeedway in April, but Waltrip feels confident this is likely his final 500. And his participation in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season-opener isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even guaranteed. Waltrip must earn his way into the starting lineup via one of Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s qualifying races. He can win a spot in the 43-car field by either claiming one of the two â&#x20AC;&#x153;transferâ&#x20AC;? spots in his race, or, if Bill Elliott, Scott Speed

or Bobby Labonte should claim a transfer spot, Waltrip would make the race based on his speed from qualifying. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not worried, even though he joked about the three spins heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had down the back straightaway this Speedweeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone down it three times backward, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only straight part of the entire track, so I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figure that out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m actually really encouraged, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think making the race is going to be a problem.â&#x20AC;? Even if it was, Waltrip would likely find a way to overcome it.

Panther Creek too much for Lady Jackets SANFORD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Panther Creek defeated Lee County 59-29 in girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball on Tuesday night. The loss likely drops the Yellow Jackets into a conference tournament play-in game on Saturday. Lee County closes the regular season at FuquayVarina on Friday. Rashida Jackson led Lee County with nine points against the Catamounts. Mikky Johnson had eight points, seven rebounds and two steals.

Pebble offers preview of Open

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Just taking a scenic stroll around Pebble Beach makes it obvious the U.S. Open will be here this summer. Not because of whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here, but whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not. The rock is gone. While not the most famous landmark in golf, the white, knee-high rock has been part of the eighth fairway at Pebble Beach for years. Because the tee shot is uphill to a blind fairway, it was positioned at the top of the hill to serve as a target. But with the U.S. Open four months away, the target has changed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really in a good line anymore,â&#x20AC;? Adam Scott said Wednesday. He hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to Pebble Beach since 1999 when he lost in the first round of the U.S. Amateur, and Scott noticed it was missing right away.

The fairway used to be plenty wide, stretching from inside the cart path on the left to the water hazard â&#x20AC;&#x201D; also known as the Pacific Ocean â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to the right. The USGA already is defining the fairway widths, so the rough now juts in some 25 yards from the left. Tim Petrovic found that out the hard way. He hit what appeared to be a suitable drive on the eighth hole, only to climb the hill and see his ball in the rough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fairway used to be all the way to that fence,â&#x20AC;? he said, pointing to an enclosed concession area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, this is different.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the only change this week. The AT&T Pebble Beach National ProAm gets under way on Thursday with a different rotation of courses and

throughout this entire season and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve kept working all season. Their hard work is paying off and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showing out on the court. Everyone is getting better at the same time and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helping us win.â&#x20AC;? Their recent surge in the second half of the season has given the Yellow Jackets an opportunity of earning a fifth-place finish in the conference. The Yellow Jackets are currently a game out of the fifth spot behind Athens Drive (9-11, 6-8), which played at Panther Creek on Wednesday night. Results of the Athens Drive-Panther Creek game were not available at presstime. The Jaguars will close out their season at home on Friday night against Holly Springs. The Yellow Jackets will close out their regular season on Friday night when they host last-place Fuquay-Varina at 7:30 in Sanford. A Lee County victory and a pair of Athens Drive losses could help the Yellow Jackets secure fifth place, which could be enough to potentially lock up a spot in the NCHSAA 4-A State Playoffs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to continue pushing the ball up the floor,â&#x20AC;? Peace said in advance of Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Fuquay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done

some new faces. Several players decided to sign up this year to get acquainted with a U.S. Open course, such as Scott, Luke Donald and Sergio Garcia, who last played Pebble in 2001 with his sister as his amateur partner. More significant is the change in course rotation. Poppy Hills, which players not-so-affectionately referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sloppy Hillsâ&#x20AC;? because it drained so poorly, has been replaced by the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club. One way to tell the difference between the Pebble regulars and those wanting a sneak preview of the U.S. Open is where they play practice rounds. The regulars canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to see the Shore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a big difference in

extremely well with these last few games. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve moved the ball and kept people in front of us. On defense, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve manned up and picked up the intensity. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to keep doing those things against Fuquay if we want to win.â&#x20AC;? Even when his team was looking up at the rest of the conference with an 0-10 record, Peace never once doubted his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chances of making a run in conference play during the second half of the season. After a 76-41 loss to Apex, which has been the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only blowout loss of the conference season, the Yellow Jackets went on to win four of their next five. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always felt pretty good about our chances of doing well in the conference because nobody had really blown us out other than Apex,â&#x20AC;? said Peace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was that Apex loss that kind of woke us up and got us going and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been playing well since then.â&#x20AC;? The loss to Apex was something Peace never wanted to see happen again. He adjusted his personnel by changing his starting five to a smaller, quicker lineup. His new lineup included a group of three guards (Isaiah Williams, Israel Williams and Russell Tatum) and two forwards (Dillon Teel and Chris Thompson). His top substitutes off the bench include big men Ricky West and Dequan Swann and

scoring,â&#x20AC;? Davis Love III said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it will be a big difference in perception. This will be like a breath of fresh air.â&#x20AC;? The course was renovated by Mike Strantz, the last course he built before dying of tongue cancer. The heart of the course runs along the California shore, offering spectacular vistas, the look of links golf and sand-capped fairways that allow it to drain better than Pebble Beach or Spyglass Hill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best renovation Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen, anywhere,â&#x20AC;? Brad Faxon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he absolutely nailed it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a seaside course with everything you would want to have. I think it rivals every bit Pebble Beach and Spyglass for quality.â&#x20AC;? It just wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t host the U.S. Open this summer, which is why Pebble will get most of the attention.

key contributor Darius Cameron. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This rotation has been working very well for us lately,â&#x20AC;? said Peace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys on the floor have been defending well for us and they have shared the ball very well and have moved it around effectively. Our subs have been giving us key minutes off the bench during this stretch. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working very well.â&#x20AC;? Peace likes having his two big men coming off the bench because they provide a huge spark in the paint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working because they can kind of get a feel for whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on from the bench,â&#x20AC;? said Peace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can sit for about the first two or three minutes, seeing whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not working. When they go into the game, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a pretty good idea as to what they need to do to help us finish. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a great job with their new roles.â&#x20AC;? Headed into their final game of the season with an opportunity at the playoffs at stake, Peace remains confident about the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success in the conference tournament, which begins next week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling very good about this team,â&#x20AC;? said Peace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys have really bought into our system during this last half of the season.

ATLANTA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that the Atlanta Braves have made an offer to free agent outfielder Johnny Damon. The person spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because no agreement has been reached. Atlantaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offer is believed to be for one year and include deferred money. Damonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agent, Scott Boras, has said he is seeking at least a twoyear deal. Braves manager Bobby Cox says the team is prepared to give 20-year-old outfield prospect Jason Heyward a chance to win a starting job. The 36-year-old Damon hit .286 with 24 homers for the New York Yankees last season and likely would hit leadoff for the Braves.

Vikings fans use billboard persuasion for Brett Favre

Purchase puts Hurricanesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; AHL affiliate in NC CHARLOTTE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Carolina Hurricanes are getting their wish: their top minor-league affiliate is coming to North Carolina. The owner of Charlotteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ECHL team announced Wednesday that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purchased the Albany River Rats and will move the money-losing American Hockey League club from New York to Charlotte for next season. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be called the Charlotte Checkers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the same name the lower-tier ECHL team has had â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and play in the downtown Time Warner Cable Arena. The move means less than a 3-hour drive for the Hurricanes to move players up or down. The team also hopes to widen its fan base. Checkers owner Michael Kahn says he expects to sell the ECHL team within the

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Last summer, coaches and players lobbied Brett Favre to join the Minnesota Vikings through text messages, phone calls and in-person visits. This year, the public has started the persuasion process for them. Driven to show their appreciation for Favreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storied first season with Minnesota, a group of Vikings fans has taken out advertising space on a digital billboard near the 40-year-old quarterbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home in Hattiesburg, Miss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey No. 4, do Minnesota fans love you and want you back next year? You Brettcha!â&#x20AC;? the message reads.

Texans extend Kubiakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract HOUSTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Houston Texans owner Bob McNair watched with admiration as the New Orleans Saints celebrated their first Super Bowl victory. McNair is confident that Gary Kubiak will lead the Texans to one very soon. The Texans announced Wednesday that Kubiak has signed a contract extension that runs through the 2012 season, a vote of confidence after the team finished 9-7 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the first winning record in the franchiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eight-year history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a foundation in place,â&#x20AC;? McNair said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go out and establish the foundation, which is what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing the last eight years. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some outstanding players, and we just have to keep building on that.â&#x20AC;?

Happy Valentine â&#x20AC;&#x2122; s Day! V â&#x20AC;&#x2122; D c p

Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, which occurs every February 14, is a holiday that celebrates love in the United States and in many other countries around the world, including England and France. The origins of Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day are attributed to a Catholic priest, known today as Valentine. Valentine lived in the time of the Roman Empire under Emperor Claudius. Claudius frowned upon marriage and hence banned it. Priest Valentine disobeyed the emperorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orders and married couples anyway. Valentine was murdered on January 14 for violating the law. The priest was canonized into sainthood for his contributions to the institution of marriage. What we know as Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day was born in the late middle ages. Catholic feasts in celebration of the martyred priest began the traditional celebration of love. Although Saint Valentine contributed to the creation of Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, many cultures have attributed the middle of February to the celebration of love. Ancient Athenians celebrated the marriage of Hera and Zeus during what is now mid-February. The Ancient Romans also had a festival called Lupercalia on the 15th day of February that was associated with the celebration of love. Lupercus was the Roman God of Fertility. Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day has also been attributed to the teachings of Valentinius, a Christian philosopher from Rome. Some believe the Roman roots of Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day are merely myths and attribute the true origin of the day to the traditional mating of doves on February 14 in England and France in the 14th Century. No matter the true origins of Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, it is one of the most popular holidays in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s society.

DEAR ABBY

Man prefers to play host instead of being a guest

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Motivation will be all it takes to get ahead. Your staying power and discipline will be high this year, so accomplishing some of your long term goals will be possible. A giant push to help others will bring you the same in return. An interesting relationship will develop, broadening your horizons and lifting your spirits. Your numbers are 2, 5, 17, 24, 30, 39, 43 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your decisions should be based on what’s best for you. Jealousy and feeling guilty are a waste of time. Reconnect with someone you miss or who can contribute to your life by reinforcing some of your old goals and ideas. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Slow down and take your time or you will end up involved in something that results in unwanted consequences. Love is on the rise but getting involved with someone you have had a bad experience with in the past will only lead to more sorrow. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Participating in social or business events will bring you in contact with someone interested in your ideas and plans. Your ability to converse and work a room will pay off. Before you know it, there will be an opportunity to consider. CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you don’t make your move, you won’t be able to take advantage of what’s being offered. Your timing must be impeccable if you want to get ahead at this time. Waffling will lead to disappointment. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The competition is great and, although you do have some great ideas, so will others. You can form a partnership with someone you feel can complement what you have to offer. Being a team player will put you in a leadership position. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A problem within your

relationship will occur if you have been all work and no play. If you neglect what’s really important, uncertainty will develop. You will find a solution if you listen to the complaints being made. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Everyone will be in your corner. Love is on the rise and the people you are with can change your future. Let everyone know what you want and what your intentions are. Once you establish your position, the rest will fall into place. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If you aren’t being honest with yourself, it’s hard for others to help or to be honest with you. Follow your dreams, don’t be afraid to be open about your intentions and plans and focus on the positive. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A trip or gathering will lead to talks about future projects and how you can contribute. Love and romance are in the stars. Someone who makes an unexpected, last-minute change will catch you off guard. Protect your home and your assets. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t let anyone push you around. Demands and ultimatums should be tossed aside. Reasonable talks and suggestions will help to calm the waters and bring everyone to the same conclusion. Diplomacy will win. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): An old friend or lover is likely to surface but keep your guard up -- nothing has changed. Past experience will guide you now and save you from making the same mistake twice. Choose the people with whom you can associate successfully. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You may be offered help but it will be at a price. Before you get involved in something new, find out what’s expected of you. A partnership may intrigue you and even sound good, but if talks become pushy, back off immediately.

WORD JUMBLE

DEAR ABBY: My husband, “Kent,” and I enjoy entertaining. We often throw birthday parties for friends, as well as holiday parties and dinners and barbecues during the summer. The problem is, whenever we receive an invitation to attend a gathering at someone else’s home, Kent responds with, “Ask them to come here.” I think this is rude because our friends are just reciprocating. This issue came up twice last week. When I asked Kent why he doesn’t like to go to our friends’ homes, he says he prefers to entertain in his own house. I don’t think it is good manners to ask a host to move the party to our home. Incidentally, when we do go, Kent always enjoys himself, so it’s not social anxiety, and he’s definitely not shy. Would you tell me if I’m making too much of this? — EMBARRASSED IN ALASKA DEAR EMBARRASSED: I don’t think so. While your husband’s impulse to host the party might seem generous the first few times the offer is extended — after a while the burden of gratitude can hang heavy and destroy friendships. That’s why it is important for people to be able to reciprocate — and for others to allow them to. o DEAR ABBY: I have been dating a man for four years. I told him I am ready to end our relationship if he isn’t ready to get married

“take” on this is that your fiance was trying to pull a fast one. If he would behave this way about your engagement ring, what else would he be less than honest about in the future? Whether you “confront” him or not depends upon how you define the word. If it were me, I’d remain calm, tell him what I’d learned and how, listen to what he had to say and take my cue from that. o

within the next year. Two months ago, he gave me a beautiful 2 1/2-carat diamond ring and announced to family and friends that we are engaged. He has not discussed any wedding plans, but he says the wedding will be within the time frame I am asking for. I went to a jeweler today to have the band on my ring enlarged a bit and was told that my stone is not a real diamond. Abby, this man owns his own business and is wealthy! He spends thousands on golf trips every year and just spent a great deal of money on high-end house furnishings. My head is spinning. I am embarrassed to tell anyone of this fraud. What is your take on this? Do I confront him? Am I fooling myself thinking that this man truly wants to marry me? — DUMBFOUNDED OR JUST DUMB? IN FLORIDA DEAR DUMBFOUNDED: My

DEAR ABBY: Please remind your readers that a nice thing to do on Valentine’s Day is to go to a veteran’s hospital to visit the veterans who are there -- especially those from World War II, whose numbers are dwindling. The wards generally have parties going on for them. Try to attend. You’ll find a group of very appreciative people there. SERVICE OFFICER, AMERICAN LEGION POST IN MAINE DEAR OFFICER: Thank you for a terrific suggestion. Valentine’s Day — with all the marketing that goes with it — can be one of the most depressing days of the year for singles. A sure way to keep the blues away is to do something nice for someone else. What you’re proposing not only fits that category, but also provides a way to meet other generous-hearted people. What better way to spend this coming Sunday afternoon?

ODDS AND ENDS Now that’s cold! NYC terrier mugged NEW YORK – A Brooklyn woman said a mugger stole a doggie coat right off the back of her mild-mannered terrier. Donna McPherson said she tied up Lexie, her 10-year-old Westie, outside a Park Slope supermarket “for two minutes” while she bought milk. She heard a “funny bark.” When McPherson went outside, she found the little white dog shivering. His green wool coat, with leather trim and belt, were nowhere in sight. McPherson said the dog coat was worth $25. She said that, fortunately, Lexie wasn’t wearing his pricier Burberry.

Baraboo man accused of using stun gun on ‘sinner’ MADISON, Wis. – A Baraboo man was accused of repeatedly shocking a male dance instructor with a stun gun, claiming the instructor was a “sinner” who “defiles married women.” A Dane County prosecutor said the suspect, 59, hastily arranged a dance lesson at the instructor’s Madison home and showed up with a stun gun and sledgehammer last Friday. The criminal complaint said the man told a detective that his church does not condone touching while dancing and that he was going to scare the instructor “and tell him to leave the women alone.” The Wisconsin State Journal said the instructor told police that the suspect phoned for private dance lessons, and when he

Man walks into Wal-Mart, smashes 29 TVs with bat LILBURN, Ga. (AP) — Police in Georgia say a 23-year-old man grabbed a baseball bat inside of a Walmart and smashed 29 flatscreen televisions. Police in Lilburn near Atlanta have charged Westley Strellis with 29 counts of criminal damage to property in the second degree. Witnesses tell police he grabbed a metal baseball bat from the sporting goods section Wednesday, walked to the electronics department and destroyed the TVs on display. Police say the televisions are valued at over $22,000.

Teen, cafeteria aide charged in food fight brawl WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut school cafeteria worker and a 13-year-old girl face criminal charges after police said a food fight turned into a real fight. Waterbury police said the fifth-grader at Gilmartin Elementary School threw vegetables at 55-year-old lunch aide Rosa Robles last Thursday, and Robles responded by throwing vegetables in the girl’s face. Police said a fight broke out when the girl punched Robles in the face. Authorities said both suffered cut lips, and the girl also had scratches on her face. School officials said Robles is on paid leave and the girl has been suspended.

God doesn’t want us to be pessimistic Q: Are some people just destined to be gloomy all their lives? I have an aunt who is like this, and no matter what happens, she’s always pessimistic and looking on the bad side of things. -- Mrs. M.G.W. A: People do differ in their personalities, and it’s true that some people seem to be pessimists most of their lives (just as others seem to be born with a sunny disposition and are always looking on the bright side). I’ve sometimes wondered if Thomas, one of Jesus’ 12 disciples, was a pessimist. On one occasion, the Bible says, Thomas mournfully said to the other disciples, “Let us also go (to Jerusalem), that we may die with him” (John 11:16). In reality, however, only Jesus would die there; the others (including Thomas) would be spared. Pessimists have a way of distorting reality and thinking that things must be worse than they are. But God doesn’t want us to be gloomy and pessimistic about everything, as if we must carry the weight of the world on our shoulders all the time. Instead, He wants us to be realists, seeing the world the way He sees it -- with both its sorrows and its joys. And we can become like this, as we learn to trust God for the future and put our lives into His hands. Jesus said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me” (John 14:1). Encourage your aunt to put her life — and her whole future — into Christ’s hands. Then urge her to commit her concerns and her worries to Him in prayer.
