SANFORD — An aspect of the Lee County Board of Education’s Advanced Placement policy that garnered outrage from some students was put to rest at the board’s meeting Tuesday night. Board members realized a policy they had put in place in March 2009 — which required high school students to take the AP exam in the course they

THE CANDIDATES

owens@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — Democratic candidates for the U.S. Senate didn’t shy away Tuesday from the national health care debate when introducing themselves to local party loyalists. In fact, N.C. Secretary of State Elaine Marshall, seeking the party’s nomination to unseat Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) in November, said at the Lee County Democratic Party’s Candidate Meet-and-Greet event at the Wilrik Hotel that she would embrace the health care plan now working its way through Congress. Some pundits think November’s election will be a referendum on the issue, and will result in large losses for the Dems, but that doesn’t scare Marshall. “People are paying more and more for health care and getting less and less,” Marshall told the crowd. “Richard Burr’s party had eight years to do something about it and did nothing.

GOOD MORNING Pet of the Week Carolina Animal Rescue and Adoption

Marrisa Marrisa is a 14-month-old female orange and white domestic short hair. Her predominantly orange coat sets her apart from everyone else at CARA right now, and if you come to meet her, you’ll see her cattitude and readiness to play also set her apart. Marrisa is quite confident and gets along well with the other kitties in the cat room, and fishing pole toys (with you at the pole-end) is her favorite pastime. Like all of CARA’s kitties, Marrisa is purr-fectly litter box trained and is more than ready to go to her furever home. Marrisa is FIV/FeLV negative, current on vaccines and preventatives, micro-chipped and spayed. See CARA’s Web site (www.caranc.org) for more info or to apply to adopt.

Listen to The Rant Download clips from this week’s episode of “The Rant” at its Facebook home

Today is Wednesday, March 10, the 69th day of 2010. There are 296 days left in the year. This day in history: On March 10, 1876, the first successful voice transmission over Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone took place in Boston as his assistant heard Bell say, “Mr. Watson — come here — I want to see you.” In 1496, Christopher Columbus concluded his second visit to the Western Hemisphere as he left Hispaniola for Spain. In 1948, the body of the anti-Communist foreign minister of Czechoslovakia, Jan Masaryk, was found in the garden of Czernin Palace in Prague. In 1969, James Earl Ray pleaded guilty in Memphis, Tenn., to assassinating civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. (Ray later repudiated that plea, maintaining his innocence until his death.) In 1980, “Scarsdale Diet” author Dr. Herman Tarnower was shot to death at his home in Purchase, N.Y. (Tarnower’s former lover, Jean Harris, was convicted).

Charter school may be forced to shut down

ABERDEEN (MCT) — The Academy of Moore County could close at the end of the school year. The State Board of Education denied a recommendation by the N.C. Office of Chartered Schools last week to renew the school’s charter for three years. The Academy was awarded a three-year renewal in 2007. The school did not meet its growth components in recent years, according to the state. “The state board examined their performance over the past years, which were low, and debated the issue and decided not to renew their charter,� said Sara Clark, a spokeswoman for the N.C. Department of Public Instruction. Allyson Schoen, the school’s director of education, said the school plans to fight to overturn the decision. The school met its growth standards as defined by the state’s testing programs in three of the past five school years, according to state records. It also met its Adequate Yearly Progress goals, or performance standards guideline measured on a federal scale, in two of the past five years. It met both components in 2008-09. Growth indicates the rate at which students learned over the past year. Under the growth formulas, students are expected to perform as well, or better, for the current year as they did during the previous two years, Clark said. The school, which is on U.S. 15-501 south of Aberdeen, was founded in 1997. It has 174 students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade. There are 13 teachers. — Fayetteville Observer

CAMPBELL U.

School to join with NCSU for degrees

RALEIGH (MCT) — Two local universities are teaming up to offer a two-for-one special. Starting this fall, Campbell University’s Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law and N.C. State University will join to develop a four-year program that will enable students to receive both a law degree and master of public administration degree. Students will have to apply and be accepted to both schools but will get two degrees in four years instead

of the five years it would take if done separately. That saved year will mean less time, and less money, for students, said Jeffery Braden, dean of NCSU’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences. The partnership was announced Monday at Campbell, a private law school. Campbell’s law program moved to downtown Raleigh on Hillsborough Street this fall from Buies Creek in Harnett County. “This is a partnership that maximizes our joint commitment to public service,� said Melissa Essary, Campbell Law’s dean. Speaking at the announcement was former Gov. Jim Hunt, who said he hopes that state government will benefit, given the proximity of Campbell and NCSU to state government offices. “We can be a whole lot better for it,� he said.

HARNETT COUNTY

Transit system to get a new home LILLINGTON (MCT) — After a wait of almost two decades, Harnett County’s H.A.R.T.S. will soon be in the right place. The Harnett Area Rural Transit System is moving to a custom-built, 1,975square-foot home off McKinney Parkway in Lillington. The new facility has enough parking for all 27 of the vans that crisscross the county each day, ferrying county residents with no other means of transport for $2 per ride. “This is really a Godsend for me,� said Angela Washington of Lillington. She’s been using the system’s Dial-A-Ride service to get to community college classes since her car broke down in December. “I desperately needed transportation,� she said. “This is not a city like Raleigh that has mass transit.� H.A.R.T.S. provided 38,398 rides to county residents between July and December last year. Washington’s story is typical, according to driver Tonia Edwards, whose route takes her from Lillington to the Anderson Creek and Spring Lake areas.

PITTSBORO — Seeking to help make Chatham a destination for businesses dealing in new environmental technologies that would create green collar jobs, the Chatham County Board of Commissioners is pinning those hopes on the newly created Green Building and Sustainable Energy Advisory Board to steer the process. “The creation of this

advisory board is an important step in positioning Chatham County to attract high quality green-collar jobs and industries,� said Chatham County Commissioner Tom Vanderbeck, who will serve as liaison to the board. Vanderbeck said that the county’s economic development strategic plan includes energy conservation, alternative energy and green technology services as one of

seven industry “clusters� that the Chatham County Economic Development Corporation has targeted for economic growth through retention, growth and attraction of jobs in this area. Vanderbeck emphasized that the strategic economic development plan is based on economic research indicating that Chatham County has a competitive advantage in these industries.

Media taking a closer look at schools

T

here’s a Web site dedicated to not only the news in our country, but the newspapers, television and radio stations and online journalists who share the news around the world. Newseum.org, the Web site of the still-new Newseum, an interactive museum on the history of journalism located in the heart of Washington, D.C., shares the front page of nearly every daily newspaper in our country (The Herald included), plus front pages from other continents as well — providing online visitors an interesting (and free) look at what is “making the news.”

And each day, Newseum shares its “Top 10” front pages, which usually either depict a national or worldwide event (such as a massive earthquake or national election) or a theme. Tuesday’s theme was “education,” and the newspapers were shown with a note that read: “Articles on education used to be relegated to a newspaper’s inside pages. Nowadays, readers see news about students, teachers and schools on the front page. Today’s education-themed Top Ten include Page-One photos and stories about Washington college professors banning

laptops from classes, Catholic campuses considering closures in Baltimore and classroom bullies in Boston. Some aspects of school never change.” Education has always been front page news for newspapers our size, as school districts more define communities our size than they do in larger cities. Today’s Herald is no different, with a lead story about a group of students upset over test fees and the “penalties” they faced if they didn’t attempt Advanced Placement. The decisions our school boards make affect a larger portion of our population (and a more vocal

one, it seems ... just ask the Saturday school parents). As a community paper, we also feel it necessary to celebrate our schools and our students’ achievements. Think back to the times when your name and face was included in your hometown paper ... even in today’s age of social networking, where a picture can be seen by thousands instantly, getting mentioned in the paper is still a thrill for most. It’s for these reasons we’ll continue to emphasize local education in our news coverage. We’re glad to see the nation is joining us.

Changing times

I

realize it’s been 37 years since I graduated from high school ... and that there’s been much change in the world, and in our schools, in that time frame. Times have changed. I’ve said it before, but to reiterate, I loved my days at Deep River. That’s not to say that school was all fun and games. Far from it. There were some academically challenging times. But, I very much liked my teachers and my classmates. And, in fact, I enjoyed the entire school experience, perhaps more than most. I felt well prepared for college and for life. Again, times have changed. It is with dismay that I read about the dropout rate for Lee County Schools, at 5.61 percent last year, in comparison to the state average of 4.27 percent. I’m sure there was someone who may have dropped out when I was in school, but no one comes to mind. I don’t remember even thinking that dropping out was a possibility. Going to high school, and graduating, was the thing to do. No, not everyone had cars and jobs. There were no computers and no iPods. No cable television. No internet. We were expected to learn without all the gizmos that are available in today’s generation. Frankly, the dropout rate is surprising. Even in today’s times. I realize there can be extenuating circumstances which may warrant someone to drop out. But, dropping out should not be a choice just because someone might be bored ... or believes life can be better without at least a minimal education. Also, I have read about the discussion of a new dress code for the schools. Whether that’s a good idea or not, well, I really don’t know what’s best. What I do know is that when I was in school, I don’t remember problems with what students were wearing. It seemed as if everyone wanted to dress nicely, and comfortably, when at school. Today’s fashions are much different. School officials have plenty to worry about without having to deal with what students are wearing on a daily basis. Teachers should be in the business of educating. They shouldn’t have to be the fashion police. Nevertheless, some students can take fashion beyond decency. It’s something of which innocent students and educators should not be subjected. It’s a shame that our educators have to spend the time to deal with dropout rates and dress codes — but this is no longer 1973. The times certainly have changed. In many ways, for the better. In some ways, not so.

‘Values’ of a smear T he word “McCarthyism” is overused, but in this case it’s mild. Liz Cheney, the former vice president’s ambitious daughter, has in her hand a list of nine Justice Department lawyers whose “values” she has the gall to question. She ought to spend the time examining her own principles, if she can find them. A group that Cheney co-chairs, called Keep America Safe, has spent the past two weeks scurrilously attacking the Justice Department officials because they “represented or advocated for terrorist detainees” before joining the administration. In other words, they did what lawyers are supposed to do in this country: ensure that even the most unpopular defendants have adequate legal representation and that the government obeys the law. Cheney is not ignorant, and neither are the other co-chairs of her group, advocate Debra Burlingame and pundit William Kristol, who writes a monthly column for The Washington Post. Presumably they know that “the American tradition of zealous representation of unpopular clients is at least as old as John Adams’ representation of the British soldiers charged in the Boston Massacre” — in other words, older than the nation itself. That quote is from a letter by a group of conservative lawyers — including several former high-ranking officials of the BushCheney administration, legal scholars who have supported draconian detention and interrogation policies, and even Kenneth W. Starr — that blasts the “shameful series of attacks” in which Liz Cheney has been the principal mouthpiece. Among the signers are Larry Thompson, who was deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft; Peter Keisler, who was acting attorney general for a time during George W. Bush’s second term; and Bradford Berenson, who was an associate White House counsel during Bush’s first term. “To suggest that the Justice Department should not employ talented lawyers who have advocated on behalf of detainees maligns the patriotism of people who have taken honorable positions on contested questions,” the letter states. But maligning is apparently the whole point of the exercise. The smear campaign by Cheney, et al., has nothing to do with keeping America safe. It can only be an attempt to inflict political damage on the Obama administration by portraying the Justice Department as somehow “soft” on terrorism. Even by Washington’s low standards, this is unbelievably dishonest and dishonorable. “Whose values do they share?” a video on the group’s Web site ominously asks. The answer is obvious: the values enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. The most prominent of the nine Justice officials, Principal Deputy Solicitor General Neal Katyal, represented Osama bin Laden’s driver, Salim Hamdan, in a case that went

Eugene Robinson Columnist Eugene Robinson is a columnist with the Washington Post Writers Group

to the Supreme Court. In a 5-3 decision, the court sided with Hamdan and ruled that the Bush administration’s military tribunals were unconstitutional. Are Cheney and her pals angry that Katyal was right? Or do they question the “values” and patriotism of the five justices who voted with the majority as well? The letter from the conservative lawyers points out that “in terrorism detentions and trials alike, defense lawyers are playing, and will continue to play, a key role.” It notes that whether terrorism suspects are tried in civilian or military courts, they will have access to counsel — and that Guantanamo inmates, even if they do not face formal charges, have a right to habeas corpus review of their detention. It is the federal courts — not defense lawyers — who have made all of this crystal clear. If Cheney and her group object, they should prepare a blanket denunciation of the federal judiciary. Or maybe what they really don’t like is that pesky old Constitution, with all its checks, balances and guarantees of due process. How inconvenient to live in a country that respects the rule of law. But there I go again, taking the whole thing seriously. This is really part of a “death by 1,000 cuts” strategy to wound President Obama politically. The charge of softness on terrorism — or terrorist suspects — is absurd; Obama has brought far more resources and focus to the war against al-Qaeda in Afghanistan than the Bush-Cheney administration cared to summon. Since Obama’s opponents can’t attack him on substance, they resort to atmospherics. They distort. They insinuate. They sully. They blow smoke. This time, obviously, they went too far. But the next Big Lie is probably already in the works. Scorched-earth groups like Keep America Safe may just be pretending not to understand our most firmly established and cherished legal principles, but there is one thing they genuinely don’t grasp: the concept of shame.

Letters to the Editor Enforce the current dress code and move on To the Editor: As the spouse of a Lee County educator and the parent of a student at West Lee Middle School and Tramway Elementary, I am very disappointed in the board’s decision to discuss further the proposed “academic attire” (uniforms) as stated in The Herald. Each Lee County school has a dress code in place, and as Mr. Thompson stated in the newspaper, “If we enforce the dress codes that are in place now, then there is no need for a uniform.” What problem are we trying to solve? Lee County is a public school system (free and public education system). Is it fair to ask parents to spend money on new or even used clothing. This is an unnecessary expense, especially in this current economic situation. Questions that come up is who will pay for those who can’t afford the uniform? What if a child doesn’t wear the uniform? Lee County schools can not deny a child public education because his/her parents are not able to afford the uniform. To impose such strict rules of dress would negatively impact a person’s individuality and freedom of choice. Yes, we should encourage and teach children the appropriate way to “dress for success,” as stated by Mr. Williams. But dressing for success does not mean everyone dresses alike and that you have such strict rules to follow. He compared public schools to the workers in Walmart and McDonald’s stating they had to wear uniforms. Is that what we want — a world where everyone looks the same and choices are limited to what color polo shirt you are going to wear? Uniforms do not teach children how to deal with people who are different than themselves. What happens when they get in to the real world? If the reason for this is to differentiate in the socioeconomic statuses, children are going to differentiate themselves regardless of polo shirts and khaki pants. Will the school board go as far as to tell us what kind of closedtoe shoes to wear as well? What about jewelry, book bags, hair styles and outer wear? I strongly urge the Lee County Board of Education and Dr. Moss to throw this idea away, enforce the dress code that is established and focus on other issues that can positively affect our school district. DAVID LAMB Sanford

Parents, not teachers, should enforce dress code To the Editor: I understand the concern with the dress code. But should not parents be responsible for enforement of the existing school policy in regard to dress? Teachers would be better spending their time teaching than looking at students’ attire. It amazes me at what parents allow their children to wear. As a retired teacher, I can say it gets old repeatedly telling the same student over and over to not wear pants that are so low, I can see their undergarments or the tiny, low cut top that reveals too much cleavage. Teachers need to teach, not enforce, the dress code policy, but if parents don’t address it, then the school must. As far as money, it surely is cheaper to buy several uniform bottoms and tops than all the other items. Even “brand” name clothes at Walmart add up after a while. And a plus would be no more arguing as to what can be worn for school. I vote for whatever gives Lee Coutny’s teachers more time to teach. KIM NEAL Sanford

Derwin, who by now was on his way to becoming a seasoned professional, had learned everything he could along the way from his father and all the top entertainers he had encountered while on the road and was quickly picked up by a local band. Within months, while still in his late teens, he was auditioned by Country music legend Charlie Louvin. During his years in Nashville, while not on the road, Derwin worked as a studio musician, did some demo work for several major country artist and even had the opportunity to play with the great Bill Monroe on several occasions. In the early 80â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Derwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father became ill, and Derwin moved back to Wilmington to be with his parents. His intention was to teach while forming a band of his own. After giving it some thought, Derwin began to see this as a way to ensure the quality of the performance and resolve the problem of musicians leaving for other work. He envisioned an upbeat program that combined Gospel music and a message focused on joyfully praising our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you become a one man band?â&#x20AC;? was the question and after a little more thought, he came up with an answer which then took over a year to perfect. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got it now! By recording all of the backup tracks on CD and performing the lead vocals and instrumental solos live, a musical blend comes from the stage that you would think was a full band. The blend is seamless, as the live performance merges with the tracks Derwin records in the studio, to convince the senses that the sources of the music is a live ďŹ ve-member top notch band. Mix this with a variety of song styles from Country and Bluegrass Gospel to Southern Gospel plus some traditional favorites, add Christian humor and message and what emerges is something for everyone to enjoy.

LifeLock ordered to give refunds, modify claims

RALEIGH (MCT) — A company that promised to safeguard a person’s identity must give refunds and restate its advertising claims after a judgment filed today in N.C. Superior Court. The N.C. Attorney General’s Office said LifeLock owes $11 million

in refunds after the agreement reached with North Carolina, 34 other states and the Federal Trade Commission. “Identity theft is a serious crime,” N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper said, “and criminals aren’t the only ones trying to make money off of it.”

LifeLock sells identify theft services for $10 a month or $110 a year. In past advertisements, the company claimed a guarantee that personal information would be protected. Some ads even included the Social Security number of company CEO Todd Davis.

About a year ago, prosecutors in several states began looking into the company after complaints about misleading statements in LifeLock’s ads. The Attorney General’s Office said North Carolina and Illinois officials led the probe.

ment class and do not take the AP test, which costs $86. The board instituted that policy so students would put effort into preparing for the exam, Moss said. “Sometimes students don’t take that class serious and they don’t take the exam as serious,” Moss said. “We looked at it as just a way to improve their weighted GPA, with focus on the instruction and the ability to pass the AP exam at a university level.” But the state board interceded in July 2009 and said the local board’s decision had no bearing on the situation. “There’s a memorandum of understanding between the university system and the state Department of Public Instruction that supersedes the board’s decision,” Moss told board members. “That never came back before you. The directive from the state

cancels your action.” Students were under the assumption that AP credit would revert to honors if they did not take the exam, and rightly so because of the board’s action last March, Moss said. Because it had said in the student handbook that if students didn’t take the test, they would be penalized, it still seemed to be an issue. The board briefly considered sending the issue to the curriculum and instruction committee, but board member Ellen Mangum pointed out that the state’s decision already had been made. “There’s nothing we can change,” she said. “We have to legally operate according to the state board’s direction.” Though she understands the test is expensive, Mangum said students taking AP classes should be prepared to work hard. “Even though the $86

seems like a lot of money for a test, it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than college tuition,” she said. SLHS Principal Bonnie Almond, who also attended the meeting, said the students had valid concerns. “There seemed to be an inconsistency in what’s being presented,” she said, mentioning that she will follow the line of authority and address the issue with her superiors to determine if there are changes that need to be made. Carraway was satisfied after the meeting, and said she and others will continue to follow the issue if it develops. “I feel like they felt cornered, just for the simple fact that they realized, legally, they couldn’t do what they first wanted to do,” Carraway said of the board. “Legally, they figured out that if they did this, they’d have a revolt on their hands.”

tress, Rielle Hunter. Jones told Young on Tuesday he was “troubled” by discrepancies in the statements that Young has made in court. Lawyers for Hunter

are trying to recover the tape and other items they say belong to Hunter. Her lawyers have accused Young of “dozens of lies” in the dispute.

Young has described showing the tape to a few people and says he has turned in the copies that he had. Young’s attorney chalked up discrepancies to “memory lapses.”

The realization came after a group of Southern Lee High School and Lee County High School students banded together to voice their concern for the board’s policy. The issue happened to come to light now because students are preparing for their AP exams this spring, said Superintendent Jeff Moss. A group of 15 students wore T-shirts that said “Should I have to pay for my grade?” to the meeting Tuesday night at the county government center. Marinda Carraway, a junior at Southern Lee High School, organized the students and created a Facebook group against the issue. Carraway said guidance counselors at SLHS had told students that their grade will drop one letter if they are enrolled in an Advanced Place-

The two-hour show will feature Petty performing 22 songs, many of them Robbins’s but some by Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and others who Robbins looked up to. Petty said he keeps the show interactive and has a good time with the audience. “Marty wrote stories. He was a storyteller,” he said. “We do a lot of storytelling and a lot of singing but we keep it lighthearted and fun with the audience. My personality comes out.” A six-piece band will perform the songs with Petty, which adds to the experience, said Producing Artistic Director Peggy Taphorn. “To be able to have Jason, who’s not only a wonderful musician and singer, but these really, really talented musicians...It’s a chance for people to hear the music,” she said. He’s been doing the “El Paso” show for a year and a half now, and the show is coming to an end after the run at the Temple this month. Petty has been to the Temple before: He portrayed Hank Williams Sr. in “Hank and His Honky Tonk Heroes” during the theater’s 2007-08 season. “When Jason was here two years ago, he did his Hank Williams show which was a huge hit,” Taphorn said. “It’s not just an imitation. You actually learn about the artist and their background.” Petty has been a fan of Robbins since he was

young. Before Petty’s first public performance in high school, he had the chance to meet Robbins. “He was such a nice guy. Very helpful and down to earth,” he said. “I really fell in love with the guy and his music.” Robbins is a star that often gets overlooked, Petty said. “Marty Robbins doesn’t get his due,” he said. “He had an iconic song, ‘El Paso.’” Robbins was an original because called the shots, Petty said. He grew up in a troubled home, served in World War II and worked hard to become successful. “Today in country music, if you don’t do what they tell you to do, you lose your record deal,” he said. “Marty wouldn’t be told what to do.” Robbins also earned two Grammy awards and had 17 Number One hits, Petty said. He sang not only country music but also dabbled in jazz and island music. The singer was inducted into the County Music Hall of Fame when he was in his fifties, a rare feat for most artists at that age, Petty added. “He could sing anything,” he said. Performing various types of music during the production makes the show more challenging for Petty, who gets to test his vocal range. “It’s everything. It gives me a chance to break out into some different singing voices,” he said. “It’s a chance to perform one of the biggest legends of country music because no one else is doing it and there’s a big audience for it.”

ANALYSIS: CAPITOL LETTER

Realtors plan may be political preview By GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — State Board of Elections Chairman Larry Leake didn’t want to hear about a new U.S. Supreme Court ruling that opens the doors to more direct corporate and union involvement in political campaigns while he weighed evidence whether the North Carolina Association of Realtors broke the law in 2008. “I am at this moment in time more interested in what North Carolina law says,” Leake told an attorney last week arguing over how the Realtors used mandatory member dues to fight tax increases on county land sales. “Help me understand that.” But the phrase “Citizens United” — a reference to the plaintiff in the landmark Supreme Court case in January — will be one to which lawyers and campaign finance reform advocates say Leake and other board members must soon respond. They contend the legal methods the association used to spend millions of dollars to influence a tax debate will become more prevalent as more groups flex their political muscles in state elections after the justices’ ruling. “They’re having permission in a sense and even encouragement from the Supreme Court to be more politically active and to use their treasury money ... and not just in a referendum but in direct advocacy of candidates,” said Bob Hall,

executive director of the reform group Democracy North Carolina. The Citizens United ruling is likely to alter significantly North Carolina and federal campaign because state and U.S. campaign laws had barred corporations, unions and trade associations from using money from their operating funds to produce and run campaign ads to endorse or oppose a candidate. The Supreme Court struck down those kinds of prohibitions, giving the groups more options than employee-funded political action committees or alternative organizations created under the Internal Revenue Code for political advocacy. State election officials and the Legislature haven’t decided exactly how to respond to these rulings. “I’m confident that if the General Assembly believes our laws are unconstitutional in any respect they’ll take the unconstitutional laws off the books,” Leake said. Leake tried to keep the lid on the Citizens United discussion as board members listened to more than two hours of testimony and arguments. It was a tall order although the complaint by association member Becky Harper had been filed more than a year before the ruling. She argued the association violated campaign finance laws by forcing her to pay extra dues in July 2008 to replenish the group’s “Issues Mobilization Fund” and extend

the association’s efforts to oppose county referenda to raise the land transfer tax. The extra assessment of up to $70 per member generated $1.8 million, said Michael Weisel, Harper’s attorney. Weisel, former legal counsel to House CoSpeaker Richard Morgan, said the examination of the association’s finances is an example of what North Carolina politics could look like as more groups like the Realtors enter. Weisel pulled out for board members a flow chart — reminiscent of a Rube Goldberg-style map — of boxes, lines and arrows explaining how the Realtors helped create nearly 30 different organizations to spend $2.7 million in 2007 and 2008 opposing a land transfer tax. The 38,000-member association spent more than $1 million to lobby the public and elected officials, Weisel said, citing records filed by the group. Nearly all of it was spent in 2007 while the Legislature debated whether to give counties the authority, with local voter approval, to raise the transfer tax on land transactions from the current 0.2 percent of the land’s value to 0.6 percent. Another $910,000 went to a tax-exempt group called the North Carolina Homeowners Alliance that developed mailers and electronic advertisements in opposition to what the association called the “NC Home Tax.” And after the Legislature

authorized the proposed tax, the association funneled more than $700,000 to local committees that helped defeat county referenda 20 separate times to increase the tax, according to Weisel’s chart. “This is the face of politics in North Carolina post-the Citizens United case,” Weisel said. The board determined the Realtors group did nothing illegal. But members voted to require reports filed by local referendum groups to be sent to the state board to make it easier for the public to know “whether there is some state or national entity that has taken a great interest in this issue,” Leake said. The Legislature needs to go further so that the public knows how corporations are paying for political activity, said Damon Circosta, executive director of the North Carolina Center for Voter Education. Congress also would have to step in, too, according to Weisel. “At the very least we need to know where the money is coming from,” Circosta said. John Wallace, the association’s attorney, said the level of donor identity on some tax forms filed by nonprofits has expanded in the last two years. The state elections board will likely have to recommend how to monitor groups that have never directly advocated for candidates until now. “It does pose a real interesting challenge for a group like this board,” he said.

America is better than that. Right now we have one side saying no all the time and the other running scared. That’s not leadership.” Absent from the meeting with Lee County Dems was former N.C. Sen. Cal Cunningham, also seeking the nomination. But his campaign’s political director Conan Morgan told the crowd Cunningham would embrace the health care debate as well. “Many lives have been touched by the lack of health care in this country and this state,” Morgan said. “Cal Cunningham will be that voice for those people.” And they should, said County Party Chairman Ty Stumpf, who said voters will appreciate Democrats’ work on the bill once they see the benefits from it. “Democrats are going to have to pass (health care reform) solely, and we need to wear it,” Stumpf said. “Once we get past the scare tactics and people realize what is actually in the bill, most voters are going to be pleased.” Ken Lewis, a lawyer from Winston-Salem who is also seeking the party’s U.S. Senate nomination, told the crowd economic development would be a

major focus of his campaign. “It’s a Democratic Party value to support people,” Lewis said. “We are living in very tough times, and the government needs to provide fertile ground for opportunities.” Marshall said she thought whomever wins the party’s nomination would stand a strong chance of unseating Burr in the fall. “I think that voters are anti-Washington, period,” Marshall said. “There is a high level of disappointment, and people are looking for change. And I think voters recognize that Richard Burr stood with George W. Bush and has done nothing to distinguish himself.” N.C. Rep. Jimmy Love Sr. and N.C. Sen. Bob Atwater also spoke briefly to the crowd on their campaigns, and Democratic candidates for local offices were on hand to meet the faithful as well, including Lee County Commissioner Robert Reives and county board candidates Kenny Cole and Mike Womble. Stumpf said the slate excited him as party chairman. “We look forward to keeping Kenny’s seat and taking Mike’s seat,” Stumpf said. “We have strong candidates, and I am most pleased about their diversity, not only in background but in their goals and vision.”

By Anne-Marie Thompson The Great Treasure Hunt STAFF WRITER

With the economy in a tailspin, what are your items worth? People have been stopping by the Comfort Inn located in Pinehurst since Tuesday to find out. The Great Treasure Hunt Antique and Collectible Buy Show experts will be there until Saturday giving appraisals, making offers, and paying in cash. The event is free to the public. The Great Treasure Hunt Antique and Collectible Buy Show has traveled the countryside for over 20 years in search of collectibles. Owners Rick Kohl Sr., Nick Gervasi, and Rick Kohl Jr. moved the business two years ago from Florida to Kernersville, NC due to the great local market

for precious metals and sports memorabilia. Just last week they purchased a baseball jersey belonging to St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Stan Musial, the estate of late baseball Hall of Famer Ty Cobb, and a certified 3-carat diamond engagement ring. The Treasure Hunters buy

The Treasure Hunters will be set up at the Comfort Inn Tuesday Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The unemployment rate has hit 11.1% in North Carolina, the highest it has been since the 1980s. With gold valued at an all-time high, locals can’t afford not to stop by the Great Treasure Hunt Antique and Collectible Buy Show. Appraisals are free of charge, and the Treasure Hunters pay in cash. “I lost my job back in January,” Rebecca Miller claimed as she watched Batchelor weigh her gold jewelry. “I’m running out of savings.” Rebecca left with $300 cash in hand.

Garden Guide Gov’t: No delay needed in trial of Easley’s aide

N.C. gets billions for programs based on census

RALEIGH (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a former aide to ex-North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley should go on trial this spring because Ruffin Poole and his attorney have had enough time and help to prepare. Assistant U.S. Attorneys John Bruce and Dennis Duffy this week filed a response to a request by Poole’s lawyer to delay his corruption trial from April 26 to August. Defense attorney Joe Zeszotarski said he has to go through 36,000 pages of documents and scores of boxes, folders and grand jury transcripts. Judge Terrence Boyle will decide whether to delay the trial.

CHARLOTTE (AP) — A new report shows North Carolina got nearly $12 billion and South Carolina more than $5 billion in 2008 for programs including health, highways and housing, based on the most recent census. The Charlotte Observer reported the summary of state benefits by the Washington-based Brookings Institution was released Monday, just a week before the 2010 census surveys should start arriving at residents’ homes. Most of the money went to health programs such as Medicaid. Housing, highways and education accounted for the next-largest allocations. The 10-question census survey should start arriving Monday at homes.

Another judge considers personal care services

RALEIGH (AP) — A North Carolina judge has sided with state Medicaid regulators in a dispute over efforts to cut spending for personal care services for people living at home. Wake County Superior Court Judge Donald Stephens says an administrative law judge didn’t have jurisdiction to decide if the state can review in-home care for more than 30,000 patients. That review could cut some patient services by half. Stephens’ order overturns the other judge’s decision to block the state from reviewing the cases. Stephens didn’t immediately sign an order at Monday’s hearing. A state official and personal care services industry group confirmed Tuesday the judge’s oral ruling from the bench.

Gov visits Graham, Samaritan’s Purse BOONE (AP) — Gov. Beverly Perdue visited Franklin Graham’s relief organization during a trip to the North Carolina mountains to see what Samaritan’s Purse is doing around the world. Perdue received a onehour tour Monday of the Samaritan’s Purse operations in Boone and visited with Graham and hundreds of employees. She was in Boone to speak to several local chambers of commerce. Perdue spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson said Tuesday the governor told the workers how much the Graham family — including Franklin’s father, the Rev. Billy Graham — meant to North Carolina residents and Perdue’s family personally.

Police view Taft’s death as homicide RALEIGH (MCT) — Kathy Taft, the state Board of Education member found badly beaten in a West Raleigh home over the weekend, died shortly after noon today, police announced. Police had mistakenly announced her death this morning, then said she Taft remained alive. A police spokesman confirmed her death at about 1 p.m.saying they are treating it as a homicide. Taft, who lives in Greenville, was found injured at the home of tax attorney

ROXBORO (AP) — The former district attorney for two North Carolina counties is being investigated for impersonating a police officer and seeking help on Election Day from people for whom he dismissed minor charges. The allegations were unveiled on Tuesday as a State Bureau of Investigation agent filed a search warrant in Person County in the probe into former prosecutor Joel Brewer. A judge on Monday ruled the warrant should be released as long as some information was redacted. The warrant states that an agent seized a gold-colored badge wirth Brewer’s name on it and two folders containing copies of old citations. Brewer hasn’t been charged with any crimes.

Taft, 62, a longtime member of the state Board of Education, was first appointed to the board by former Gov. Jim Hunt in 1995. Taft was a former vice chairwoman of the Pitt County Board of Education and she was a founding member of the Pitt County Communities in Schools Program. She ran for a state Senate seat in 2008. She was surrounded by family, including her four grown children, sister and brother. Shortly after her death was announced, Gov. Bev Perdue issued a statement saying she “will miss her terribly.” “I have known Kathy Taft as a dear friend for more than 25 years,”

Perdue said. “The kindness she showed me, as a fellow woman from down east working to make a difference, is something I will never forget.” Taft, the mother of four — two sons and two daughters — has been described by friends and colleagues as a kind, civic-minded woman. Neighbors say was often seen in the driveway of her Greenville home playing with her grandchildren. Her ex-husband, Tom Taft, is a former state senator from Greenville. The Tafts were longtime friends of former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper. The couples vacationed together at Figure Eight Island.

John Geil at 2710 Cartier Drive just after 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, authorities reported. Police immediately launched a criminal investigation, cordoning off Cartier Street and searching the two-story home for evidence of a criminal assault. Police have not made an arrest in connection with the assault, according to police spokesman Jim Sughrue. The Taft family is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. “The family embraces and supports Kathy’s long time friend, John Geil, at whose house this vicious act took place,” according to a family statement released today by WakeMed.

Minority births on track to outnumber white births sity of New Hampshire who researched many of the racial trends in a paper being released Wednesday. Johnson explained there are now more Hispanic women of prime childbearing age who tend to have more children than women of other races. More white women are waiting until they are older to have children, but it is not yet known whether that will have a noticeable effect on the current trend of increasing minority newborns. The numbers highlight the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing racial and age divide, seen in pockets of communities across the U.S., which could heighten tensions in current policy debates from immigration reform and education to health care and Social Security. There are also strong implications for the 2010 population count, which begins in earnest next week, when more than 120 million U.S. households receive their census forms in the mail.

By HOPE YEN Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Minorities make up nearly half the children born in the U.S., part of a historic trend in which minorities are expected to become the U.S. majority over the next 40 years. In fact, demographers say this year could be the â&#x20AC;&#x153;tipping pointâ&#x20AC;? when the number of babies born to minorities outnumbers that of babies born to whites. The numbers are growing because immigration to the U.S. has boosted the number of Hispanic women in their prime childbearing years. Minorities made up 48 percent of U.S. children born in 2008, the latest census estimates available, compared to 37 percent in 1990. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Census projections suggest America may become a minority-majority country by the middle of the century. For Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children, the future is now,â&#x20AC;? said Kenneth Johnson, a sociology professor at the Univer-

The Census Bureau is running public service announcements this week to improve its tally of young children, particularly minorities, who are most often missed in the once-a-decade head count. The campaign features Nickelodeonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dora the Explorer, the English- and Spanishspeaking Nickelodeon cartoon character who helps â&#x20AC;&#x153;mommy fill out our census form.â&#x20AC;? The population figures are used to distribute federal aid and redraw legislative boundaries with racial and ethnic balance, as required by federal law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The adults among themselves sometimes forget the census is about everyone, and kids should be counted,â&#x20AC;? said Census Bureau director Robert Groves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we fail to count a newborn that is born this month, that newborn misses all the benefits of the census for 10 years.â&#x20AC;? Whites currently make up two-thirds of the total U.S. population, and recent census estimates

suggest the number of minorities may not overtake the number of whites until 2050. Right now, roughly 1 in 10 of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3,142 counties already have minority populations greater than 50 percent. But 1 in 4 communities

have more minority children than white children or are nearing that point, according to the study, which Johnson co-published. That is because Hispanic women on average have three children, while other women on

average have two. The numbers are 2.99 children for Hispanics, 1.87 for whites, 2.13 for blacks and 2.04 for Asians in the U.S. And the number of white women of prime childbearing age is on the decline, dropping 19 percent from 1990.

Jobless aid measure clears Senate hurdle

WASHINGTON (AP) — Legislation to give additional months of unemployment benefits to people who have been out of a job for more than half a year cleared a key hurdle Tuesday that guarantees it will soon pass the Senate. The sweeping bill also

would prevent doctors from absorbing a crippling cut in Medicare payments and extends health insurance subsidies for the unemployed through December. It would add $132 billion to the budget deficit over the next year and a half.

Eight Republicans voted with Democrats to defeat a GOP filibuster of the measure, setting up a final vote on Wednesday. The measure illustrates the great extent to which direct help for the jobless and the poor makes up a large portion of Dem-

ocrats’ election-year agenda on jobs — and that it threatens to squeeze out other items on that agenda amid concerns about a budget deficit projected at a record $1.6 trillion this year. Democrats also hope this week to separately

finish work on a far smaller job-creation measure blending additional highway spending with new tax breaks for companies that hire the unemployed. The Senate could clear the measure for President Barack Obama’s signature by Friday.

BRIEFS ‘I do’ in DC: Same-sex couples wed in Washington WASHINGTON (AP) — One bride wore a black suit, the other had on a white one with rhinestones. They walked down the aisle to Billy Joel’s “Just the Way You Are” and kissed after the pastor pronounced them “legally married.” The Rev. Darlene Garner, 61, and the Rev. Candy Holmes, 53, were among the first same-sex couples to marry in Washington on Tuesday, when the district became the sixth place in the country to conduct the unions. “You have been in love, and you have recognized it all along. But today, the love that you have recognized in your heart is recognized by the District of Columbia,” the Rev. Dwayne Johnson told the couple. “Equality and justice for all now includes us,” Garner said after the ceremony. Both she and Holmes are leaders in the Metropolitan Community Churches, a group of Christian churches that primarily serve the gay and lesbian community. The district joins Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont as places that issue same-sex couples marriage licenses.

Probation report cites predatory traits of suspect LOS ANGELES (AP) — A decade-old probation report on a sex offender accused of murdering California teenager Chelsea King contained a psychiatrist’s conclusion that the defendant had “significant predatory traits” toward underage girls and should be kept in prison for as long as possible. “The defendant does not suffer from a psychotic disorder,” a probation officer quoted Dr. Matthew F. Carroll as saying for the report. “He is simply a bad guy who is inordinately interested in young girls.” Carroll further said John Albert Gardner III’s “prediliction toward younger girls is a problem. He manifests significant predatory traits and is a danger to the community,” the officer wrote. The report released by the San Diego County Superior Court on Tuesday was prepared in 2000 for the sentencing of the then-21-yearold Gardner after he pleaded guilty to committing lewd and lascivious acts on a 13-yearold neighbor girl. The victim was also punched repeatedly before escaping.

Ohio State janitor’s gunfire kills co-worker, self COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio State University janitor who was about to lose his job walked into a maintenance building for his early morning shift Tuesday and shot two supervisors, killing one of them and fatally shooting himself. No students were hurt. Nathaniel Brown, 51, arrived for work at the nation’s largest university dressed in dark clothing, a hooded sweat shirt and a backpack. He then opened fire in an office suite using two handguns, campus Police Chief Paul Denton said. Brown spent five years in prison in the 1970s and ’80s for receiving stolen property but lied about it on his job application, records show. It wasn’t immediately clear whether Ohio State had done a background check on him. Ohio State released documents from Brown’s personnel file showing that supervisors complained he was tardy, slept on the job and had problems following instructions. The university sent him a letter March 2 informing him that his employment was to end Saturday.

E-BRIEFS

Samsung, Panasonic start selling 3D TVs By PETER SVENSSON AP Technology Writer

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Samsung and Panasonic will start selling 3-D TVs in U.S. stores this week, inaugurating what TV makers hope is the era of 3-D viewing in the living room. Samsung Electronics Co. announced Tuesday that it is selling two 3-D sets. Combined with the required glasses and a 3-D Blu-ray player, the prices start at about $3,000 for a 46-inch screen. Panasonic Corp. has said it will sell its first 3-D set Wednesday. The push into the living room comes as moviegoers have shown considerable enthusiasm for the latest wave of 3-D fare in the theater. This weekend, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alice in Wonderlandâ&#x20AC;? grossed an estimated $116.2 million at the box office, beating the first-weekend receipts of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Avatar,â&#x20AC;? the winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-D blockbuster. Although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that 3-D sets for the home will appeal to technology and home-theater enthusiasts, it remains to be seen if the TVs will entice regular consumers to spend $500 or more above the price of a comparably sized standard TV and Blu-ray player. The 3-D effect re-

Sonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-D televisions are introduced as a model watches with its 3-D glasses included in the TV set in Tokyo, Japan, Tuesday. quires viewers to wear relatively bulky glasses that need to be recharged occasionally. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not like the cheap throwaways that have been used in theaters since the 1950s. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re wearing these 3-D TV glasses, room lights and computer screens may look like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re flickering, making it difficult to combine 3-D viewing with other household activities. And for now, there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much to watch in 3D. Samsung is including a 3-D copy of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monsters vs. Aliensâ&#x20AC;? on Blu-ray discs with its packages, in a deal with the studio, DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. Its CEO, Jeffrey Katzenberg, said that it would convert its â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shrekâ&#x20AC;? movies to 3-D for

Samsung TV buyers later this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We continue to see this amazing level of enthusiasm and excitement for 3-D. The rate of adoption for this into the cinema has been a rocket ship these last couple of months,â&#x20AC;? Katzenberg said. Eventually, sports and other programming that will benefit from a more immersive experience should be offered in 3-D. ESPN has said it will start a channel that will broadcast live events using the technology, starting with FIFA World Cup soccer in June. Samsung, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest maker of TVs, has high hopes for 3-D. Tim Baxter, the head of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U.S. electronics division, said he ex-

pects 3-D to be in 3 million to 4 million of the 35 million TV sets that all manufacturers will sell in the U.S. this year. Sony Corp. said Tuesday it will start selling its 3-D televisions in June. It hopes that 10 percent of the TVs it aims to sell in the next fiscal year will be 3-D units. Both Sony and Panasonic appear to be positioning their 3-D sets at a higher premium than Samsung. Panasonic hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet revealed what its sets will cost, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s using only highend plasma screens, for maximum image quality. And rather than selling 3-D sets broadly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going only through Best Buy Inc.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Magnolia Home Theater stores. Samsungâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two new sets will be followed by another 13 3-D capable models in the next two months. Soon, 3-D packages with plasma sets will be available for about $2,000, Baxter said. The TVs going on sale this week arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the very first ones that are 3-D capable. A few years ago, Mitsubishi Corp., started selling 3-D rear-projection sets. But this is the first time consumers can get flat-panel sets that come with an easy way of accessing 3-D content through Blu-ray players.

Andy Richter calls â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; exit frustrating

ined, said Richter, who figured his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonightâ&#x20AC;? job was â&#x20AC;&#x153;as good as it gets in show business.â&#x20AC;?

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Andy Richter, Conan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sidekick at â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tonight Show,â&#x20AC;? is acknowledging some ill will toward NBC and Jay Leno in the wake of the networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s late-night Richter upheaval. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t I?â&#x20AC;? said Richter, who was filling in Tuesday for Regis Philbin on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Live! with Regis and Kelly.â&#x20AC;? Richter told Kelly Ripa he was frustrated that Leno was allowed to reclaim â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tonight Showâ&#x20AC;? host chair just nine months after Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien had inherited that plum assignment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;NBC, definitely, everybody said they were going to do something and they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? said Richter, implying the network broke long-standing commitments it made to Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien left NBC and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonightâ&#x20AC;? in January amid complaints by NBC of low ratings. NBC had proposed reinstating Leno in the 11:35 p.m. EST slot and bumping Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien back a half-hour. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future is unclear. So is Richterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, though he said, for now, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still an NBC employee, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see if those checks keep coming.â&#x20AC;? He called a rumored live concert tour for Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien and Co. â&#x20AC;&#x153;a distinct possibility.â&#x20AC;? It all ended much quicker than he could have imag-

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Early Showâ&#x20AC;? co-anchor Harry Smith is scheduled to have a colonoscopy Wednesday, with live reports planned as he undergoes the procedure at a New York hospital. CBS says it will be the first time an anchor has had a colonoscopy live on network television. â&#x20AC;&#x153;CBS Smith Evening Newsâ&#x20AC;? anchor Katie Couric plans to be with Smith as he prepares for the procedure. Smith and Couric are recognizing National Colorectal Cancer Awareness month. Couric has been an advocate for early cancer screenings since her husband, TV legal analyst Jay Monahan, died of colon cancer 12 years ago. He was 42.

Leibovitz can keep portfolio under new debt deal NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Annie Leibovitz, the photographer who mismanaged her fortune so badly that she faced losing legal rights to some of pop cultureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most enduring images, has reached a long-term agreement with a private investment firm to help manage her debt and market her vast portfolio, both sides said Tuesday. Leibovitz, 60, will retain total control of her multimillion-dollar portfolio under the deal she signed with Colony Capital LLC of Santa Monica, Calif., on Monday, said Richard Nanula, a Leibovitz principal with the firm. Under the agreement, Colony will become the photographerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sole creditor and help market her archive of such provocative images as a nude John Lennon cuddling with a clothed Yoko Ono hours before his death, as well as a nude and very pregnant Demi Moore. Leibovitz obtained an extension last year to repay a $24 million loan to a Manhattan firm, Art Capital Group, in a financial dispute that had threatened her rights to those images and others. ** Planet 51: PG (10:20), 12:20, 5:25 ** Planet 51: PG (10:20), 12:20, 5:25

Class-action lawsuits could cost $3B

views with experts. Those estimates do not include potential payouts for wrongful death and injury lawsuits, which could reach in the tens of millions each. Still, the sheer volume of cases involving U.S. Toyota owners claiming lost value — 6 million or more — could prove far

more costly, adding up to losses in the billions for the automaker. Such class-action lawsuits “are more scary for Toyota than the cases where people actually got injured,” said Tom Baker, a University of Pennsylvania law professor. “A super-big injury case would be $20 million. But

you could have millions of individual car owners who could (each) be owed $1,000. If I were Toyota, I’d be more worried about those cases.” As Toyota continues to deal with the recalls and wavering public confidence in its vehicle safety, its biggest financial fight may be in the courtroom. A key decision could come at a March 25 hearing in San Diego, where a panel of federal judges will consider whether to consolidate the mushrooming cases into a single jurisdiction. After that, a judge will decide whether all claims filed by Toyota owners nationwide can be combined in a single legal action — known as “certifying a class” — and whether the claims have enough merit to move toward either trial or settlement. Toyota owners suing the company contend their vehicles have dropped in value because of the recalls and that Toyota knew all along about safety problems but concealed them from buyers. They point to evidence such as Kelley Blue Book’s decision this month to lower the resale value of recalled Toyotas an average of 3.5 percent, ranging from $300 less for a Corolla to $750 less for a Sequoia.

Pa. woman charged with recruiting jihadists online PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman has been charged with using the Internet to recruit jihadist fighters and help terrorists overseas. A federal indictment charges the woman with agreeing to kill a Swedish citizen on orders from the terrorists and traveling to Europe to carry out the killing. The indictment describes her as in her 40s and from Montgomery County, in suburban Philadelphia. It doesn’t say whether the woman is in custody or whether the Swede was killed. U.S. Attorney Michael Levy tells The Associated Press the indictment doesn’t link the woman to any organized terror groups. Authorities say the case shows how terror groups are looking to recruit Americans to help carry out their goals.

Assisted suicide network members indicted in Ga. ATLANTA (AP) — A grand jury indicted four members of an assisted suicide group Tuesday on charges they helped a 58-year-old man with cancer kill himself, clearing the way for a trial that could not only decide their fate but also help validate — or repudiate — their work. Attorneys representing the Final Exit Network members say they are confident they will be exonerated if

their case lands before a jury. And they hope it will bolster this offshoot of the right-to-die movement, which contends it never actively assists with suicide, just guides people through the process. Blehr and three other members of the network were arrested in February 2009 in connection with John Celmer’s death at his north Georgia home.

Feds: California man ran student visa fraud ring SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Eamonn Higgins has never earned a college degree in his own name, but prosecutors allege that for the past seven years the 46-year-old has been going to school non-stop for dozens of other students. Higgins, of Laguna Niguel, was charged Monday with operating a ring of illegal testtakers who allegedly helped dozens of Middle Eastern nationals obtain U.S. student visas by passing Englishproficiency exams for them — and then helped them hold onto those visas by taking college courses, passing finals and writing term papers in their names. The allegations outlined in court papers reveal a potentially dangerous security breach in the country’s student visa system and underscore the vulnerability of a tracking process that relies on schools and testing centers to verify the identities of people taking the mandated exams.

NASCAR PUTS EDWARDS ON 3-RACE PROBATION CHARLOTTE (AP) — Sticking with its “boys, have at it” attitude, NASCAR placed Carl Edwards on probation for three races Tuesday for deliberately wrecking Brad Keselowski’s car last weekend in Atlanta. Edwards will be monitored by NASCAR through the April 10 race at Phoenix but may drive in the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series. NASCAR president Mike Helton said Edwards acted unacceptably Sunday but did not cross the line in what the sanctioning body will allow this season. NASCAR promised in January to give the drivers more leeway in policing themselves and settling scores in an effort to energize the sport. “We made it very clear to (Edwards) that these actions were not acceptable and did go beyond what we said back in January about putting the driving back in the hands of the drivers,” Helton said. “We believe (Edwards) understands our position at this point.” There had been a strong call from fans and analysts for NASCAR to suspend Edwards, who returned to the track down 153 laps from an earlier accident with Keselowski and intent on wrecking his car. He tried for at least one lap before succeeding with three laps to go, nudging Keselowski’s car and sending it airborne. The car banged hoodfirst off a retaining wall before flipping back onto its wheels. No one was hurt. Keselowski supported NASCAR’s decision.

SANFORD — Lee Christian got the big inning at the right time. With two outs in the sixth inning, the Falcons cobbled together a string of big hits and scored seven runs to come from behind and beat Salem Baptist 9-6 on Tuesday. The hit parade started with Jonathan Godfrey, and Dalton Thornton, Jon Lineberry, Jared Thomas, Jeremy Worrell, Dylan Rosser and James Mlynczak all followed. Mlynczak picked up the win for the Falcons (1-1) with three scoreless innings of relief after Lee Christian fell behind 6-1. Worrell drove in three runs while Thomas drove in two.

SANFORD — The Southern Lee Cavaliers never feel like they are out of a game. Twice this week, the Cavaliers have faced at least three-run deficits. Twice they’ve rallied for big earlyseason wins. Southern Lee, after knocking off perennial state championship contender Western Guilford on the road 10-9 on Monday, rallied from a 5-1 deficit on Tuesday night against Eastern Randolph for a convincing 12-5 victory. “I really like this team,” said Cavaliers coach Matt Burnett. “They have tremendous chemistry because they’ve played together for a while. They check their egos at the door and have a fight to them that’s special.” That fight has been evident in the last two games. After falling behind 6-3 at Western Guilford, Southern Lee (2-1) scored a whopping seven runs after one out in the top of the seventh inning. The Cavaliers got a two-run double from Andrew McNeill to take the lead 7-6, then a two-run home run from Jared Kehagias for a 10-6 advantage. They needed all of those runs as the Fighting Hornets closed within a run and had runners on second and third in the bottom of the seventh before Southern Lee managed to coax a popout to the catcher to end the game. “It was a great, great game,” said Burnett, who served as the pitching coach at Western Guilford before he came to Southern Lee. On Tuesday night, Southern Lee trailed 5-1 before the bats got going. Kehagias had three hits and three RBI while Jack Sapp added two hits and scored three times. Derek Gaster, who picked up the win on the mound, also had two hits, as did Walt Podruchny. Southern Lee travels to play Pinecrest on Friday.

Devils back in familiar territory By JOEDY McCREARY AP Sports Writer

DURHAM — Duke always has a target on its back, and the fourth-ranked Blue Devils figure it’s gotten bigger lately. That’s because they’ll make the cross-state trip to Greensboro for the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament this week as the defending champion and its No. 1 seed — the first time that’s happened since 2006, when J.J. Redick was the star and the leaders of the present-day Blue Devils were still in high school. “Especially this year, because people are seeing how well we’ve been doing, (they) want to get us even

more because that’ll prove something about their team,” center Brian Zoubek said Tuesday. “We have to have even more resolve because of that, and recognize that teams are going to be coming after us every single game. We’re not going to be able to take a game off and just win. That doesn’t happen.” The Blue Devils (26-5, 133) shared the league’s regularseason crown with Maryland and won the tiebreaker to claim the top seed. They begin tournament play Friday against the Virginia-Boston College winner. For Duke’s seniors, it’s a

SPORTS SCENE

There are two sides to the handling of NASCAR feud H

ow many of you remember the late comedian George Carlin? If you do it is probably more for his routine about the seven words you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say on television. But he was also famous for some witty sayings. My favorite is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No two ways about it, there are two sides to every story.â&#x20AC;? Today I will examine the fact that neither Carl Edwards nor Brad Keselowski are right and there is not another way to look at it. At least I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think so. I started to write this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column Sunday evening and was about halfway through until I realized that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the whole story. I wanted to immediately side with Keselowski and I wanted Edwardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head on a platter. I wanted Edwards suspended. I said that last night. Today it is a different story.Today I am siding with Edwards and I think he was in the right. There we have it. I am talking out of both sides of my mouth. When the wreck happened I failed to think back to last year at Tal-

ladega when Keselowski got under Edwards on the last lap and cost Edwards a victory. I failed to remember all of the occasions where Keselowski has wrecked Denny Hamlin and caused friction between them. It seems that every time there was a wreck Keselowski was in the area. What it boils down to is that Keselowski is a madman with a weapon in his hand and until someone stops him, this will continue. Before this season started, NASCAR took the reins off of the drivers and told them â&#x20AC;&#x153;he gloves were off.â&#x20AC;? This helped Keselowski. He is probably the most aggressive driver out there. Even Kyle Busch canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compare. Busch is aggressive but I think over the last couple of years he has calmed down and uses his aggression as a positive. Not Keselowski. He just hits whomever is in his way, but usually the same ones, i.e. Hamlin and Edwards. Sunday he hit Edwards

on lap 41 and it ended up eliminating Edwards and Joey Lagano from being competitive. Edwards had an opportunity to wreck him later and so he did. He actually tried on two or three other occasions, but missed, so he knew what he was doing. Now this is where I draw the line and go back to side with Keselowski. Edwards should know two wrongs will never make a right. I feel like if he had a score to settle then he should have waited until he got to Bristol or Martinsville. Not in Atlanta while doing 200 miles per hour! Too many innocent people could have been hurt. I know Edwards had no intentions of Keselowski flipping, but he should have realized that it could happen because it happened to him. After all of this I have no idea who is at fault or who is to blame. All I know is that NASCAR started it and I was anxious to see how they resolve it. (NASCAR placed Edwards on three weeksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; probation on Tuesday.) Had they suspended Edwards then it would have been sending a message to the other drivers that the idea of letting them decide the outcome is null and void. If they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything then they would be condoning a driver wrecking another and putting themselves

and the fans in danger. As I said earlier, there are two sides to it but neither is right. I think the best thing to do would have been to let it go and put in a wrestling ring and go them at it. Wrestling and racing! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all the same! Last week I noted that I was tired of Jimmie Johnson winning every week. Well, this week I got my wish, but not before I had to reply to an e-mail I received. My friends at Cameronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Body Shop called me out on being a whiner and I agreed with them. They said that I was the whining one, not Johnson. Well, I replied that they were ri... I mean, they were ri... Oh fine, they are right. Do you realize how hard it is for me to say that they were right? They asked if I wanted JJ to just stay home? I replied by saying that I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t argue with them and I am aware of my error. Johnson is the best and I have said that too much lately. Love him or hate him, he is a fourtime defending Sprint Cup champion, and until another driver knocks him off of that perch then I will do my best to leave my whining to other topics. Other topics such as fan attendance or boring races. Sunday was different. It was exciting for the fans but not for the drivers. They hate the new green-white checkered rules and next week we will examine that. Have a great week and we will see you soon.

Drivers pleased with tests

ACC PLAYER AND COACH OF THE YEAR

SPORTS BRIEFS team officials. Receiver Chad Ochocinco has been lobbying for the Bengals to sign Owens.

Tech withholding review on Hewitt

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Tech athletic director Dan Radakovich says he will wait until the end of the season for “any discussion” on coach Paul Hewitt’s status. Georgia Tech finished a disappointing seventh in the Atlantic Coast Conference in the regular season and plays North Carolina on Thursday night in the ACC tournament in Greensboro, N.C. Radakovich told The Associated Press Tuesday there is still “much to be gained” by the Yellow Jackets. Hewitt’s Yellow Jackets may need to win at least one game in the ACC tournament to earn a bid to the NCAA tournament. Georgia Tech, 19-11 overall, finished 7-9 in the ACC. Hewitt has only one winning ACC record in 10 seasons, including five straight finishes of sixth or lower.

DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Elliott Sadler had no complaints for Goodyear, only for those drivers griping about the manufacturer. When asked what it meant that at least a dozen competitors faced tire trouble at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday, Sadler was quick with a response: “Yeah, but there were 37 others that didn’t,” he said Tuesday at Darlington Raceway. Sadler and fellow Sprint Cup racers Marcos Ambrose and Clint Bowyer came to the track “Too Tough To Tame” to shake out the dormant raceway and give Goodyear some insight about what tire to bring to the Southern 500 in May. Sadler said those racers bothered by tire compounds should instead look to their raceshops for better setups designed to minimize tire wear and maximize the rubber. “I think it’s the best Goodyear tire we’ve had in Atlanta in years,” Sadler said. “You can race really hard with it. You can race side-byside.” Sadler acknowledged the complaints of some teams. “I know Denny Hamlin had one, he had a fast race car,” Sadler said. “But he ran over something. To me, that’s not a tire issue.” Ambrose and Bowyer were also complimentary about Goodyear’s product.

Eagles pick up Vick’s 2010 option BALTIMORE (AP) — Michael Vick says the Philadelphia Eagles exercised their 2010 option on him, meaning the quarterback will receive a $1.5 million roster bonus sometime this week. That doesn’t necessarily guarantee he’ll return to the Eagles for another season. Vick was signed as a free agent with Philadelphia before the 2009 season and played sparingly as the backup to Donovan McNabb. He is due $5.25 million in salary next season. With McNabb and backup Kevin Kolb still in the fold for the Eagles, there has been speculation that the Eagles might try to trade Vick.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Final Four will be shown in 3-D in movie theaters around the country. CBS announced Tuesday that the men’s basketball national semifinals April 3 and the championship game two days later will be broadcast in 3-D in up to 100 theaters.

NEW YORK (AP) — The NCAA’s senior vice president says no decision has been made on whether to expand the men’s basketball tournament. Greg Shaheen reiterated Tuesday at CBS’s NCAA tournament media day that the organization is doing its “due diligence.” He says “nothing is a done deal or decided at this point in time.”

RALEIGH (AP) — Greivis Vasquez is the Atlantic Coast Conference’s player of the year. The Maryland star on Tuesday won the league’s top individual honor following a season in which he averaged nearly 20 points and helped lead the Terrapins to a share of the regular-season title. Vasquez received 39 of a possible 53 votes by members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Duke’s Jon Scheyer received 12 votes and Virginia Tech’s Malcolm Delaney had two. Vasquez is the sixth

Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium on Dec. 30

NEW YORK (AP) — The first Pinstripe Bowl will be played at Yankee Stadium on Dec. 30 and will be televised by ESPN. The game will include the No. 3 team in the Big East and the No. 6 school in the Big 12, excluding Bowl Championship Series participants.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Terrell Owens is headed to Cincinnati to see if the Bengals are interested in adding him to their stalled-out passing game. The 36-year-old receiver tweeted on Tuesday that he was on his way to meet with

Maryland player to win the award and the first since Juan Dixon in 2002. He was a unanimous selection to the all-ACC first team a day earlier.

award for the second time and first since 2002 — when he won the national championship. He received 42 of 53 votes. Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski was second with eight votes. Williams’ Terrapins enter this week’s ACC tournament in Greensboro as the league’s hottest team. They have won seven straight, hold the No. 2 seed and earned a share of the regular-season title with a 13-3 league record — their best since going 15-1 during the national title season in 2001-02.

ACC names Williams COY RALEIGH (AP) — Maryland’s Gary Williams is the Atlantic Coast Conference’s coach of the year. The ACC on Tuesday named Williams as its top coach as determined by a vote of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Williams was an overwhelming choice to win the

Strasburg sharp in debut

VIERA, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Top prospect Stephen Strasburg made his spring training debut on Tuesday, pitching two scoreless innings in the Washington Nationalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 9-4 loss to the Detroit Tigers. Strasburg threw 15 of his 27 pitches for strikes and allowed two hits, successive two-out singles by Don Kelly and Alex Avila in the second. But the right-hander finished off Brent Dlugach with a bending, 81 mph breaking ball for an inning-ending strikeout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wanted to go out there and

chance to take the next step forward in careers marked by steady progress in the postseason tournaments. They arrived in Durham shortly after the Redickled group had polished off the proud programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run of seven league tournament titles in eight years and wound up taking their lumps while the rest of the frustrated ACC took turns paying them back for the series of past beatings, going one-and-done in

throw strikes,â&#x20AC;? Strasburg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they hit it, they hit it. Big deal. I have enough confidence in my stuff that if I can go out there and make them put the ball in play, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a great defense behind me thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to back me up.â&#x20AC;? Strasburg was selected with the No. 1 overall pick in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft and received a record $15.1 million, fouryear contract from the Nationals. He went 13-1 in his final season with San Diego State, leading Division I pitchers in ERA (1.35) and strikeouts (195 in 109 innings).

both the ACC and NCAA tournaments. The following season, they matured enough to win one game in each tournament. Last year, they had No. 2 seeds in both events, winning the ACC event before advancing to the NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second weekend for the first time since â&#x20AC;&#x2122;06. Now comes an even tougher task: repeating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do see (the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progress) continuing,â&#x20AC;? senior Jon Scheyer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, right now, this team has made steps throughout my career here. For us, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just a really hungry team right now. You

Strasburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fastball against the Tigers was consistently measured in the 97-98 mph range and he struck out two. He had some problems with location and threw first-pitch strikes to only two of the eight batters he faced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Command wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really there, but I think a lot of that had to do with the adrenaline going on,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that happens to me every time â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even in college, even in high school. That first outing, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all this excitement and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really difficult to control the adrenaline and make sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re staying nice and relaxed.â&#x20AC;?

Going into the ACC tournament, our expectation is to win it, and the same thing with the NCAA tournament.â&#x20AC;? After setting a school record by finishing 17-0 at

Cameron Indoor Stadium, Duke heads out to what could be considered its home-away-from-home: the Greensboro Coliseum, where the Blue Devils won a pair of ACC titles in the 2000s and last year picked up a pair of NCAA tournament victories. And while these Blue Devils might not have any experience defending a

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Minnesota Twins suddenly have a glaring concern about closing games for the first time since Joe Nathan took over in 2004. Tests on Nathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right throwing elbow have revealed a significant tear in the ulnar collateral ligament, an injury that could require seasonending Tommy John surgery. Nathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 246 saves over six seasons are the most in the majors during that span. The Twins shared the grim news on Tuesday in Fort Myers, Fla., before their exhibition game against the St. Louis Cardinals. General manager Bill Smith said the plan is to first give Nathan time to let soreness and swelling subside, and build strength in the muscles around the joint, before a final decision about surgery. In the meantime, a second opinion will be sought from Dr. James Andrews, the noted surgeon who removed bone spurs and chips from the elbow in October. The ulnar collateral ligament is replaced in the Tommy John procedure, which typically takes 12 to 18 months to recover from. Nathan will try to pitch again in two weeks. If he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, the four-time All-Star will have surgery. His season

championship, they sure do know how to win one. Many of the key contributors are back from the group that took care of Boston College, Maryland and Florida State to earn the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eighth title in 11 years and first of their careers. Kyle Singler played all 120 minutes of that three-game run, while Scheyer averaged 22 points

then would almost certainly be over, perhaps putting his status for next year in question, too.

Alex Rodriguez â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;at easeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with Canadian doctor TAMPA, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Yankees star Alex Rodriguez said Tuesday he is at ease with his ties to a Canadian sports doctor embroiled in cross-border investigations involving HGH and another drug, though he still hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talked to federal authorities about the case. Speaking a day after Dr. Anthony Galea told The Associated Press he treated Rodriguez last year and prescribed anti-inflammatories but never gave him or any other athlete HGH, the three-time MVP said he still doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when he will be interviewed by federal agents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at ease no matter what,â&#x20AC;? Rodriguez said when asked how he felt about Galeaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments. Rodriguez sat in front of his locker at New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spring training complex Tuesday and spoke to reporters for about 3 1/2 minutes about the situation. He seemed calm and even laughed at times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got nothing new to report,â&#x20AC;? he said several times.

BRIDGE HAND

Too many cooks would spoil beloved mother-in-law’s broth

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Reach out to others and put your skills to work. You have more to offer than you realize and should be proud of your accomplishments. Business and personal partnerships will be enhanced if you are willing to work toward the same goals. Stabilization and greater security can be yours if you compromise. Your numbers are 3, 12, 16, 27, 32, 44, 47 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep a low profile and you will stand a much better chance of getting things accomplished. An emotional moment with someone you work with or for will set you back or cause you to miss out on an opportunity to advance. Don’t mix business with pleasure. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone from your past will offer you an opportunity. Your involvement in something that you believe in and the help you offer will raise your profile and your reputation. A stubborn attitude will cause problems at home. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t count on getting the help you need or the favors promised. Concentrate on the people you love most or the organizations you feel most akin to. At least, your efforts will make you feel good about yourself. CANCER (June 21-July 22): A partnership that offers you the opportunity to get involved in something that interests you will lead to a better position and future. It’s important that you clearly state your concerns and what you need in return for your services. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Put more time and effort into your relationships. Your energetic approach to whatever you do will lead to impressive accomplishments. A business trip will allow you to show what you have to offer first hand.

WORD JUMBLE

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The more you do with friends, peers and family, the better. Sharing your thoughts with people you trust will lead to opportunities and ideas. The more fun you make a project, the more help you will get and the sooner it will be completed. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your determination and effort will not go unnoticed. A physical problem must be taken care of immediately if you don’t want it to spin out of control. Be careful while traveling. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stop dreaming; concentrate on what’s factual and you will be able to stay on course and accomplish what you set out to do. Present what you have to offer and you will get what you need to proceed. Don’t let friendship get in the way. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): You are likely to be criticized if you are too eager to share your thoughts and plans. Empty promises will be misleading and can cause you to lose valuable time and ruin a potential partnership. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You’ll be torn between what you should do and what you want to do. Don’t let your heart lead you in the wrong direction when so much is on the line. Pushing too hard will lead to opposition. Honesty will bring the best results. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put our heart and soul into ways to make more cash. Don’t let red tape or institutions cause you emotional upset. Deal with matters as they arise and you will avoid feeling pressured, stressed and overwhelmed. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your good deeds for others will bring you benefits, experience and the opportunity to use your attributes or skills in a new way. Once you have proven how effective you can be, you will have the ability to earn more.

DEAR ABBY: My mother-in-law, Edye, was a wonderful cook and an accomplished hostess. Friends and family enjoyed being a part of her events, not only because of the food but also because she made everyone feel so welcome. Before my husband and I were married, I met Edye for the first time at a dinner she hosted in my honor. Of course, I was nervous about meeting her and wanted to make a good impression. After the introductions, I followed her into the kitchen and offered to do what I could to help. She smiled and said, “No thank you, dear. I like to do things my way,” and then she pointed to a poem she had framed and hung on her wall. The title was, “Stay out of My Kitchen,” and she told me it had come from your “Keepers” booklet. Edye passed away two years ago, and the poem now hangs in my sister-in-law’s kitchen. I think of my dear mother-in-law every time I see it. How can I get some copies of your “Keepers” booklet? I will be hosting a wedding shower for my niece and would like to use them as part of the gift bags I’m assembling for the luncheon. — STILL MISSING EDYE IN SAN FRANCISCO

who needs a “lift.” The poem your mother-in-law framed is brief, polite and succinct — and here it is: STAY OUT OF MY KITCHEN by Susan Sawyer

Abigail Van Buren Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

DEAR MISSING EDYE: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your mother-in-law. From your description, she must have been a talented and special lady. I’m pleased Edye found my Keepers Booklet enjoyable, and I hope your guests will, too. It can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $6 (U.S. funds), to: Dear Abby -- Keepers Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. You’ll find it contains a collection of humorous and inspirational letters, poems and essays that were longtime favorites of my own dear mother — which is why she included them in an inspiring, easy-to-read booklet for anyone

Please stay away from my kitchen From my dishwashing, cooking and such; You were kind to have offered to pitch in But thanks, no, thank you so much! Please don’t think me ungracious When I ask that you leave me alone; For my kitchen’s not any too spacious And my routine is strictly my own. Tell you what: You stay out of my kitchen With its sodden, hot, lackluster lures — When you’re here, stay out of my kitchen And I promise to stay out of yours!

o SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT: How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong — because someday you will have been all of these. — GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER

eBay item: Xbox that brought down Baltimore mayor

Teacher backs SUV into Mich. preschool classroom

BALTIMORE (AP) — Prosecutors in former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon’s perjury case are putting the spoils of their efforts on eBay. An Xbox 360 video game console seized during a raid on Dixon’s home is for sale. As of Tuesday afternoon, the highest bid was $660. Potential buyers have until March 18 to bid on the Xbox. Dixon pleaded guilty to perjury for lying about gifts, and a jury convicted her of embezzling gift cards donated to the city for needy families. She received probation and stepped down as mayor. State Prosecutor Robert Rohrbaugh says he plans to post Dixon’s two fur coats and a camcorder on eBay soon. Proceeds from the sales will go to a city program that provides summer jobs for teens.

FRANKLIN, Mich. (AP) — A teacher trying to park her SUV Tuesday backed through a large window and into a classroom at the suburban Detroit school where she taught, slightly injuring several preschool students, authorities said. The teacher was trying to park her Jeep outside Huda School & Montessori, a private Islamic school, and hit the gas pedal instead of the brake, Village of Franklin Police Chief Patrick Browne said. Browne said six of the 17 preschool students were injured, primarily with cuts and bruises. Four went to a hospital and three were released Tuesday afternoon. The fourth, a boy, was expected to be released by the end of the day. Principal Azra Ali said the students were eating a snack at the time of the crash, and another teacher was in the room at the school, located about 15 miles northwest of Detroit.

Pa. suit: Bank wrongly repossessed home, took bird PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pittsburgharea woman is suing Bank of America, claiming it wrongfully repossessed her home and saying that a bank contractor trashed the house and took her parrot. Forty-six-year-old Angela Iannelli sued Bank of America in Allegheny County on Monday. She claims her mortgage payments were on time when the contractor damaged furniture, took her pet parrot and padlocked the door to her Allison Park home in October. Bank of America declined to comment. The suit seeks unspecified damages. Iannelli’s attorney says she suffered irreparable emotional damage and is afraid to set foot in the house. The lawsuit says she eventually regained possession of the bird, named Luke, after repeated phone calls to the bank.

SUDOKU

Pet shop owner claims fish is 43, weighs 20 pounds NEW YORK (AP) — It sounds fishy but a New York City pet shop owner says it’s true. Buttkiss, the black pacu he owns, is 43 and weighs 20 pounds. A pacu is a breed that’s related to the piranha. Steve Gruebel owns Cameo Pet Shop in Queens. He got Buttkiss in 1967 when he was just a wee thing. He sold him a year later when Buttkiss was two inches long. But in 1970, Buttkiss was returned when he outgrew the buyer’s tank. Buttkiss lives in only a four-foot-long, 75-gallon tank. Gruebel said he’s afraid to move him because he may not survive the changing environment. Buttkiss is beginning to show his age. He has arthritic gills and glaucoma in his right eye.

Jesus also rejected hypocrites Q: If Christianity is true, then why are most of the so-called “Christians” I know hypocrites? I’d rather be a complete unbeliever (which is what I am) than someone who claims to be a Christian but doesn’t act like it. At least I try to be a good person, and they don’t. -- J.H. A: Would it surprise you to discover that Jesus didn’t like hypocrites either? Not only were they insincere, He said, but they made a mockery of true faith and brought disgrace to it. In fact, some of Jesus’ strongest words were directed at people who claimed to follow God but in reality weren’t obeying Him but were selfish and unloving and evil. On one occasion, He boldly condemned some of the religious leaders of His day with these words: “On the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness” (Matthew 23:28). God knows our hearts and minds, He was reminding them -- and nothing is hidden from Him. The same is true with us. Yes, some so-called Christians are hypocrites, but what about those who aren’t -- the men and women who take their commitment to Christ seriously, and are following Him every day? How do you explain them? Their lives have been changed by Jesus Christ, and because of Him they reach out sacrificially to those in need across the world. Don’t let a few hypocrites keep you from Christ. Instead, face honestly your need for God -- for His forgiveness for your sins, and for the new life He offers to all who put their faith and trust in Christ. God loves you, and you will never be the same once you yield your life to Jesus Christ.

Needing a new grain? Try polenta

For The Associated Press

NEW YORK — In recent years all manner of unassuming foods have endured high-end makeovers. Mac and cheese was spiked with lobster and truffles, hamburgers got serious slider treatment, and cupcakes morphed into an industry dripping with retro-cuteness. Now pizza is enjoying its own artisanal moment. Though high-end pies aren’t entirely new, their number — as well as that of pizzaiolos, the de rigueur term for those who craft rather than simply bake pizzas — has grown. And during the past year, the quest for the best has driven some critics across the country and back. GQ magazine’s Alan Richman zigzagged the nation before

t’s funny how some things are just ingrained in a person. So many things that I do throughout a typical day are things that I don’t even think about, they are just things that I do a certain way because that is the way that they have always been done. Many of these things are not just things that have always been done that way since they were within my control, many of them are things that were done that way when I was a child, and throughout INSIDE See our my entire weekly Dining lifetime I Guide for have just local menu continoptions ued to do Pages 4-5C things the way that my parents always did them. Mealtime is somewhat of a ritual, and is a perfect example of how I have never broken away from the mold of my childhood. I am so thankful that throughout my entire childhood, mealtime was always a guaranteed time of the day when the four of us would all be together. We would sit at the kitchen table — not in front of the TV — and talk about our day. I loved it. I also loved the spread of food that was on the table every night. Our meals always consisted of a main dish, a vegetable and a grain. Along with that, there was always applesauce and cottage cheese on the table and often a cup of fruit in front of each plate. Nobody went hungry in our house! To this day, I can’t sit down for dinner unless there is a main dish, a vegetable and a grain. Ross usually thinks I am a little crazy and my sister always asks me why I have to do that just because Mom always did. Well, I am not sure. But I do. It is kind of a compulsion, it just doesn’t seem to be a complete meal if we don’t have all of those things. I often struggle with changing up the grains since you can only have

Review Continued from Page 1C

France, and back to Greece — over a period of several years. During those years both women were grappling with penetrating questions whose answers would come to define them personally and affect their relationship. For Ann, a fresh college graduate ready to embark on a new journey, the questions stemmed from her desire to choose the right path and forge her identity in the world. Sue was struggling with turning fifty and what that meant for her as a woman and as a writer, and she was also beginning to write “The Secret Life of Bees,” which carried a set of questions all its own. Both women embrace a spiritual journey on the trip as well, as they encounter many sacred sites and artifacts, and come to form a relationship with Mary, the mother of Jesus. Mary speaks to them on various levels throughout the journey, and eventually becomes the centerpiece for Kidd’s first novel. In Greece, the spiritual journey becomes mythical as Sue and Ann explore the legend of Demeter and Persephone, a mother and daughter of Greek mythology whose story depicts loss and reunion, and which the modern day mother and daughter come to adopt as their own. I enjoyed this book immensely, particularly Ann’s chapters, because I feel that I can more closely relate to her as she searches for her calling and for her true self, and eventually surrenders to the call to write.

Through the last few years I have dealt with similar questions and am slowly coming into the answers. I am also a daughter, and the depiction of the bond between this mother-daughter pair caused me to reflect on my own connection with my mother and walk away with new insight into what she must be thinking along with a deeper appreciation of our relationship. I can also relate to the moments of spiritual revelation that each woman describes, although not in quite the same way. While I don’t hold to the same doctrines or spiritual beliefs as the writers, I do believe that we can come to a greater understanding of our calling, identity, and place in the world through our relationship with God; while Ann was describing praying to Mary and finding answers, I recalled passages of scripture and particular moments or conversations that I know God used to reveal truth to me. This book speaks to journeys that every woman takes — first uncovering her calling, then accepting that calling as it changes and changes her, eventually watching her daughter or those around her do the same, and finally coming to grips with being on the other side of the questions. While many of us won’t travel to Greece, or find personal meaning in ancient mythology or artifacts, we can still relate to finding spiritual and personal connections where we live and work every day, and hopefully we can use those connections to figure out who we are and what we are meant to bring to the world.

Storm damage to trees, bushes

I

am always skeptical when I hear weather forecasters predict snow in our area, so you can be sure I was surprised when I woke up to a white blanket of snow last week! The thrill of the snow quickly wore off as I got reports of broken limbs and downed trees. One of our trees at the office was cracked in half! What a disaster! Snow and ice can be disastrous for landscape plants in our area. Heavy loads of snow can bend and break tree and shrub branches. The first thing to do after a snow or ice storm is to assess the damage. Walk around your property to determine which plants may have been damaged. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be too quick to doom a tree or shrub. If the tree didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sustain too much damage and the basic structure is still intact, the tree will probably make it. If the treeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trunk is split (like the one at our Center) or most of the canopy is

destroyed, it may not make it. If large limbs are broken, climbing is involved or the tree is located near a power line, contact a professional. Let me emphasize professional. Not just somebody who shows up with a chainsaw! Cooperative Extension recommends hiring a certified arborist. A certified arborist is a professional trained in horticulture and tree care, has passed an exam, and follows a professional code

of ethics laid forth by the International Society of Arboriculture (http://www. isa-arbor.com/home.aspx). Only try to prune limbs that are easily accessible and do not require chainsaw use. Leave chainsaw usage to the professionals. If the limb has broken away from the main trunk, remove the entire limb. Look for an area known as the branch collar â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it is a raised area surrounding the branch where is meets the trunk. This area has more regenerative cells and will heal more quickly. To safely remove a limb without causing more damage to the tree, follow these steps: n Make a cut on the underside of the limb, several inches from the trunk. Do not go all the way through. n Next make a cut all the way through the limb, several inches out from the first cut. n Now, remove the resulting stub just outside the branch collar. If the branch has torn

the main trunk, remove the limb completely. At this point there is not much more to do. The tree will have a permanent scar from this breakage. Never apply pruning paints or other paints to pruning cuts. These products actually do more harm than good. For trees or shrubs that are bent over by the weight of the snow or ice, brush off loose snow. Let any stubborn snow or ice melt away, rather than trying to remove it. Tyrying to remove it could cause more damage. If the small tree or shrub looks like it may tip, straighten it up after the snow has melted. Then brace it up long enough for new roots to form and permanently anchor the plant. Snow can be loads of fun, but it can also be damaging to plants in the landscape. When cleaning up after a storm, hire professionals for tough jobs, do not try to lift too much, and prune properly for a speedy recovery.

hoping that this whole uncomfortable situation will be over as soon as possible. Suddenly you are jolted awake and realize that you were only having that dream again, the one where you have to speak in front of an entire audience of people. Hey, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel bad. Most of us have had a similar dream. In fact, over 85 percent of Americanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim that their number one fear is speaking in front of large groups. Obviously, public speaking is a common source of stress for almost everyone. Because this is the case, many of us would like to avoid speaking in public like the plague. The only problem is that we often times donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that luxury. In most of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jobs, there is going to be some opportunity for speaking in front of a group. Whether we work alone or with large numbers of people, eventually we will need to speak in public to get certain tasks accomplished. If you ever aspire to a leadership or managerial role in the workplace, you can be certain youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to speak to groups, large and small, to be successful. O.K., so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve determined that public speaking is something that we are going to have to get used to, like it or not. What then? Well, I say the best way to develop yourself into a proficient public speaker is quite simple if you follow the three Pâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s: Practice, Practice, and more Practice.

Public speaking is just like any thing else, in that the more you practice the better youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get. What is the best way to practice? Plain and simple, go out and start speaking in public. In 4-H we have a public speaking program that helps young people develop public speaking skills beginning at an early age. The younger we can get kids to start speaking in public, the more confident and comfortable they will be in front of groups as they grow older. The 4-H presentation program allows youth to choose a topic they are interested in, research it, design the presentation, and present the information in front of an audience. This concept works well as young people are more apt to be comfortable speaking in front of groups about a topic that they are knowledgeable about and have an interest in. In the upcoming months, Lee County 4Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ers will begin putting together their public speaking presentations in preparation for 4-H County Activity. At County Activity Day, 4-H members will give their presentations in front of family, friends and judges. The judges will provide helpful feedback to each of the presenters to prepare them for their next stop at the District competition. Once they reach the District level, Lee County 4-Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ers will compete against young people from 14 other counties, with the hopes of advancing to the state competition in Raleigh held in mid-July during 4-H Congress. By developing these public speaking skills at such a young age, 4-Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ers are arming themselves with a valuable skill that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. For more information on how to get involved in the 4-H Public Speaking Program or 4-H in general, please call Bill Stone at 775-5624.

rice, pasta and potatoes so much. We recently discovered polenta, and have really enjoyed playing with it and mixing in different things. Once you get the base down of the liquid and cornmeal ratio, you can have fun yourself with mixing in different flavors. This recipe is a savory polenta that we made this past weekend and served alongside grilled pork chops. It was the perfect complement to the meat — and, of course, to the peas as well.

SAVORY POLENTA

2 ¾ cups low-sodium chicken broth 2 cups water 1 ½ cups milk 1 tablespoon butter 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder 1 teaspoon salt ¼ tsp basil ¼ tsp thyme ¼ tsp black pepper

1 ½ cups yellow cornmeal ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese ¼ cup grated sharp cheddar cheese In a saucepan, bring to a boil the chicken broth, water, milk, butter, garlic powder, basil, thyme, sage and salt. Gradually whisk in cornmeal, set heat to medium-low, and simmer the cornmeal mixture until thick and creamy, stirring often to prevent lumps (about 15 minutes). Remove from the heat, and stir in the Parmesan and cheddar cheeses until well combined. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 inch pan. Spoon the polenta into the prepared dish, adding more cheese, salt and pepper if you like. Bake in the preheated oven until the polenta is bubbling and golden brown on top, about 30 minutes. Let cool, slice and serve hot for a texture similar to southern grits. By cooling it in the refrigerator completely they will fully set, allowing you to cut into squares. Reheat by frying or grilling (grilling is my favorite).

“It’s fun. It’s fast. Everybody can do their own. It’s much more forgiving,” he says. About 6 ounces of dough is the right amount for a 10-inch pie, Palombino says.

naming Great Lake pizzeria in Chicago his top choice. Meanwhile, Ed Levine and Adam Kuban — the men behind the blog Slice — worked with Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine to scout pizzerias across 11,000 miles before naming New York-to-Phoenix transplant Chris Bianco of Pizzeria Bianco their winner. But chances are you don’t have the time or frequent flier miles to hit these top spots. And with all this talk of top-shelf pizza, you may be finding the offerings at your local shop and the grocer’s freezer section a little underwhelming. So we asked the nation’s top pizza makers for tips on crafting artisanal pies at home — without the benefit of a pizza-perfect wood oven. “It’s not impossible. It’s not even enormously difficult and it’s better than 90 percent of pizza you get delivered. Once you have the crust, you can do anything,” says Richman. “It’s something anybody can do in their own way. It may go wrong the first time, but you won’t go wrong the second time.”

TEMPERATURE Crank it up, says Anthony Strong of Pizzeria Delfina in San Francisco. “Crank the oven as high as it will get and leave it that way” for about an hour, he says. “The faster you can cook a pie, the less dense the crust is going to be and more properly cooked

SHAPE DOESN’T Who says pizzas have to be round? Silverton says pizzas of any shape are delicious so long as the crust is evenly thin. So focus on that rather than on making it perfectly round.

To get a pizza like the ones coming out of the special ovens at your favorite pizza shop, try using a pizza stone. the ingredients on top are going to be.” Most professional pizza ovens reach 800 F or more. Most home ovens will max out at 500 F, which Strong says should be fine. To get it even hotter, heat the oven on broil until ready to put the pizza in it, then switch to the highest baking temperature your oven allows.

STONES In restaurants, pizzas are cooked directly on the tile or stone of specially crafted ovens. The stone retains heat well, and also helps the dough begin cooking the instant they come into contact. Smaller stones that can be placed in home ovens are widely available, and the experts say they are worth the investment. “What you are doing with the stone is simulating what it would be like to cook a pizza in a tiled oven,” says Nancy Silverton of Pizzeria Mozza in Los Angeles. “What you are getting is a much better heat conductor.” Silverton, who is writing a pizza cookbook, has been testing stones. “Kind of like anything else, you get what you pay for,” she says. A good one will run in the $50 range. Another option is to go to the hardware store and purchase unglazed quarry tiles, which run a few dollars and work just as well, Silverton says. MIXING THE DOUGH Don’t do too much of it, says Ken Forkish

of Ken’s Artisan Pizza in Portland, Ore. Mix it just enough to incorporate the flour, water, salt and yeast, then leave it alone, he says. This keeps the gluten from being overworked, giving the crust a “light, delicate texture.”

LET IT RISE A long, slow rise using less yeast is better than a faster one using more. “I can make a decent pizza dough in two hours, but it’s going to be a lot better if I 1/8use less yeast and 3/8 wait six to eight hours or overnight,” Forkish says. Letting the dough sit at room temperature gives the crust better flavor, he says. “If there was an epiphany in my career, it was to learn that less yeast and more time creates a more flavorful dough. We think of time and temperature as an ingredient,” he says. BUY IT Not the pizza, the dough. Not up to mixing and a slow rise? Go to your favorite pizzeria and ask to buy a ball of dough. Most will sell it to you for just a few dollars. If it’s refrigerated, be sure to let it come to room temperature before working with it. SIZE MATTERS As impressive as it is to watch pizza makers spin large rounds of dough in the air, do not try to make big pizzas, says Mathieu Palombino of Motorino in New York. Smaller pizzas are much easier to work with, he says.

STRETCH THE DOUGH On a floured surface with floured hands, flatten each 6-ounce ball into a disk, then use your fingertips or your knuckles to lightly press the edges of the dough outward to stretch it, says Jim Lahey of Co. restaurant in New York, who is writing a cookbook for the home pizza baker. Lahey says he tries to stretch the dough the least number of times he can to keep from overworking the dough. And flour on the counter is a must to keep the dough from sticking and tearing. Think of it as a “lubricant to the dough,” he says. “Use as much as you need to prevent friction to the dough, which can cause it to tear. Don’t overexert yourself. Relax.” THE TOPPINGS Obviously, the better the ingredients, the better the pizza. And every expert has favorites. Forkish swears by San Marzano tomatoes for the sauce. The San Marzano is the tomato that is used in real Neopolitan pizza, the style that is the starting place for many artisanal pies. “It is a low acid tomato and has a sweetness to it,” he says. “A lot of people will add sugar to their pizza sauce to counteract the acidity, but our using the San Marzano negates that.” Hardy toppings, such as most meats and thick vegetables, go on before baking. More delicate toppings, such as many greens — including fresh basil and arugula — should be added only just before serving. CHEESE Not all cheeses melt the same. Soft, oily cheeses will separate if they spend too much time at high heat, and that leaves gooey puddles of oil on the pizza. Likewise, moist cheeses, such as fresh mozzarella, blue cheese and ricotta, can burn. The way around this is to bake the dough for 1 to 2 minutes without toppings, then add the sauce, toppings and cheese, says Lahey. To get those perfect splotches of cheese across the top of a pizza — instead of the gooey carpet bombing effect produced by many grated cheeses — cut block cheese into cubes, Silverton says. They will melt down into perfect gooey rounds. LESS IS MORE Like any composed dish, pizzas require balance, says Lahey. Pizza makers have the urge to dump on too much sauce and cheese, but he urges people to hold back. Vegetables and sauce contain water, which can make a pizza soggy during cooking. And too much cheese can overwhelm the other flavors. “Never too much of one ingredient,” he says. “If you are adding things like mushrooms and raw sausage, which have water, dial back on some of the sauce.”

Creating a senior-friendly bathroom

DEAR SAVVY SENIOR: What tips or products can you recommend to make a bathroom more senior-friendly. My husband and I are looking to adapt our home for our elderly years and would like to start with the bathroom. What can you tell us? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; AGING GRACEFULLY

DEAR AGING: Because more accidents and injuries happen in the bathroom than any other room in the house, this is a great place to start seniorizing. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you should know.

SMALL CHANGES To avoid hygiene hardships as you get older, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start with some simple tips and a few low-cost add-ons that can make a big difference in making your bathroom safer and easier to maneuver. n Floor: To avoid slipping and tripping, get non-skid bath rugs for the floors or secure existing floor mats or rugs with double-sided rug tape. n Lights: The older we get the more light we need, so install the highest wattage bulbs allowed for your fixtures, and get a plug in nightlight that automatically turns on when the room gets dark. n Entrance: If the doorway into the bathroom is not wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair or walker, you can easily widen your doorways (two

inches) with inexpensive offset door hinges. n Bath/shower: To make bathing safer, buy a non-slip rubber mat or put down self-stick strips on the tub/shower floor, and install grab bars for support. If you use the shower, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to put in a shower curtain rod that screws or bolts into the wall (versus a tensionmounted rod), so that if you lose your balance and grab the shower curtain, the rod wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spring loose. Another safety precaution is to put in a water-resistant, wallmounted phone in or near the bath/shower in case of a fall. And many seniors with mobility or balance problems need to shower sitting down. If this applies to you, install a hand-held, adjustable-height shower head, and buy a portable bath/shower chair. n Toilet: Install grab bars next to the toilet if possible, or purchase a toilet seat riser.

two-to-four inches of height making it easier to sit and rise. n Faucets: If you have twist handles on the sink, bathtub or shower faucets, replace them with lever handles. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re easier to turn, especially for seniors with arthritis or limited hand strength. Also be aware that it takes only 130degree water to scald you, so turn your hot water heater down to 120 degrees or get anti-scald devices for your faucets.

BATHROOM PRODUCTS If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking about remodeling, there are a variety of practical and stylish products on the market that can make your bathroom more age-friendly. For bathing, prefabricated â&#x20AC;&#x153;curbless showersâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;walk-in bathtubsâ&#x20AC;? are two popular options today. Curbless showers have no threshold to step over so access is a breeze and ideal for wheelchair users. Theses showers also typically come with a built-in seat, grab bars, an adjustable hand-held shower head, and a slip resistant textured floor. Or, if you like to take baths, a walk-in bathtub with a front door may be the way to go. You can find these products at sites like AccessibleShowers.com and Premier-Bathrooms.com.

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in getting a new toilet, go with an ADA compliant â&#x20AC;&#x153;comfort heightâ&#x20AC;? toilet thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 17 inches high, versus a standard toilet thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only 15 inches. Kohler ( Kohler.com) and American Standard (AmericanStandardus.com) make a nice variety. And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting in a new sink, install it at a level that reduces bending. For wheelchair access wall-mounted or pedestal sinks, or a sink built into a cabinet thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open underneath will let you roll in nice and close. And if you get a new faucet, the single lever handle style is great for those with arthritis.

Health Matters

Nutrition from the ground up

N

ational Nutrition Month is observed each year in March. The National Nutrition Month was created 1973 by the American Dietetic Association (ADA). It is designed to promote healthful eating by providing practical nutrition guidance and focusing attention on making informed food choices. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Nutrition Month theme is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nutrition from the Ground Up.â&#x20AC;? This is a great reminder for eating fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and beans to create a healthy diet and understanding the role of nutrition in getting and staying healthy. When it comes to buying fruits and vegetables, many factors play a role in which types consumers choose, including nutritional value. The American Dietetic Association says no matter what form they take, fruits and vegetables are good-foryou foods that can be enjoyed at any time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While fresh fruits and vegetables are recommended, this does not mean they are the only healthy option,â&#x20AC;? says registered dietitian and ADA spokesperson Ximena Jimenez. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Research

Joyce Brooks Brooks is Director of the Women, Infants and Children Food program at the Lee County Public Health Department

shows frozen and canned foods can be as nutritious as fresh. In fact, since some nutrients in canned produce are more easily absorbed in the body, these can sometimes be better nutrition choices than fresh.â&#x20AC;? Fresh, canned or frozen, Jimenez offers ideas for getting the most from your fruits and vegetables, no matter what form your produce takes:

FOR CANNED FRUITS AND VEGETABLES Get the juice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For canned fruit, look for descriptions on the label like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;packed in its own juices,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;packed in fruit juice,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;unsweetenedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;in syrup.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Fruits packed in juices contain less added sugar and fewer calories than fruits packed in syrup,â&#x20AC;? Jimenez says. Pinch the salt. If you

are cutting back on sodium, look for descriptions such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;no salt addedâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;reduced sodiumâ&#x20AC;? on the labels of canned vegetables. Savor the flavor. Use canned fruits and vegetables immediately after opening for maximum flavor and nutritional value. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Handle leftovers as you would any perishable food,â&#x20AC;? Jimenez says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remove them from the can, place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator or freezer to retain taste and nutritional quality.â&#x20AC;?

FOR FROZEN VARIETIES Forgo the fat. When buying frozen vegetables, control fat and calories by choosing plain vegetables or those made with low-fat sauces. Check the label. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frozen fruits come in both sweetened and unsweetened varieties, so make sure to check the label and choose unsweetened if you are limiting your sugar intake. Frozen fruit bars also make a nutritious snack, but read the label to learn if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re made with real fruit juice,â&#x20AC;? Jimenez says. DRIED FRUITS Pick the plain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dried fruit contains lots of fiber,

vitamins A and C, potassium and folate, but also more calories per serving than fresh fruit because of natural and sometimes added sugar,â&#x20AC;? Jimenez says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also, some dried fruits are preserved with sulfite, which can trigger allergic reactions. So read the package label to make sure your choice is in line with your healthful and safe eating plan.â&#x20AC;? Have a handful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dried fruit is a great portable snack. It can also jazz up salads, pancakes, bread recipes or a bowl of cereal,â&#x20AC;? Jimenez says. Just remember that there are thousands of varieties of canned and frozen fruits and vegetables on grocery store shelves, which makes it easy to find foods that suit your tastes and fit into a healthy eating plan and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always fun to try a new food or find a new way to cook your old favorites.â&#x20AC;?

Researchers: AIDS can hide in bone marrow

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The virus that causes AIDS can hide in the bone marrow, avoiding drugs and later awakening to cause illness, according to new research that could point the way toward better treatments for the disease. Finding that hide-out is a first step, but years of research lie ahead. Dr. Kathleen Collins of the University of Michigan and her colleagues report in this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edition of the journal Nature Medicine

that the HIV virus can infect long-lived bone marrow cells that eventually convert into blood cells. The virus is dormant in the bone marrow cells, she said, but when those progenitor cells develop into blood cells, it can be reactivated and cause renewed infection. The virus kills the new blood cells and then moves on to infect other cells, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ever going to be able to find a way to get rid of the cells, the first step is to understandâ&#x20AC;?

where a latent infection can continue, Collins said. In recent years, drugs have reduced AIDS deaths sharply, but patients need to keep taking the medicines for life or the infection comes back, she said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an indication that while the drugs battle the active virus, some of the disease remains hidden away to flare up once the therapy is stopped. One hide-out was found earlier in blood cells called macrophages. Another pool was discovered in memory T-cells, and research began on attacking those. But those couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t account for all the HIV virus still circulating, Collins

said, showing there were more locations to check out and leading her to study the blood cell progenitors. Finding these sources of infection is important because eliminating them would allow AIDS patients to stop taking drugs after their infection was over. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s critical in countries where the treatment is hard to afford and deliver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how many people realize that although the drugs have reduced mortality we still have a long way to go,â&#x20AC;? Collins said in a telephone interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is mainly because we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop the drugs, people have to take it for a lifetime.â&#x20AC;?

But that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the end of the story. More than 100 aftershocks continued â&#x20AC;&#x201D; some large enough to be categorized as â&#x20AC;&#x153;strongâ&#x20AC;? earthquakes, themselves â&#x20AC;&#x201D; shaking people again and making life even more complicated for rescue workers. Havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we seen this story before? Less than three months into the new year, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already seen our second terrible earthquake. The first, centered near the Haitian capital of Port au Prince, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as large as the one in Chile but did more damage in a poor country with fragile buildings and a weak infrastructure. So far, 230,000 earthquake-related deaths have been reported in Haiti, many times the early estimates weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hearing from Chile. As always, Americans are opening their hearts and wallets to ease suffering and begin the long rebuilding process. If you can help, too, please do. But be wary about where you send your contributions. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unfortunate fact of life, but whenever money begins flowing, disreputable people are more than ready to step in and divert some to their own pockets. According to one USA Today report, federal law enforcement officials have received more than 170 complaints about scams in the name of Haitian earthquake relief. Many target online givers, but others are simply people going door-todoor asking for money or fake charities making a typical pitch. Then, there are entirely-legitimate charities collecting money in less-effective ways. A new one made popular early in the Haitian relief effort is giving by texting, where you send a short text message to some special number and a small contribution is added to your monthly phone bill. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to give and, if enough people respond, can generate a substantial amount of money. On the other hand,

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so easy to give that some people can quickly ring up a bill they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect and maybe canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay. Plus, it can take a very long time for these contributions to get from your phone to where help is needed right away. Given all of the options, what is the best way to help people struggling in Chile? First of all, make your contribution to a reputable organization with experience in disaster relief and a network already in place where people need the help. The American Institute of Philanthropy, a watchdog group that evaluates and rates charities, suggests these top-rated organizations to support the effort in Chile: American Red Cross, AmeriCares, Brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brother Foundation, Catholic Relief Services, Church World Service, Doctors Without Borders USA, Habitat for Humanity International, International Medical Corps, Lutheran World Relief, Mercy Corps, Operation USA, OxfamAmerica, Salvation Army, Save the Children, UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) and World Vision. The United Way, which provides funding to many of these groups and others based in and near Chile, is another very good option, and the effort itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coordinating now is updated regularly at www.liveunited.org/ chileupdate/. Second, give directly to the charity â&#x20AC;&#x201D; rather than through some third party â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so your contribution can be moved quickly. Once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there, you will be helping provide food, shelter and medical care for victims and rescue workers. Then, establishing field hospitals, water purification plants and temporary bridges to ease suffering. When you want to help, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? to any appeal. But doing the most good with your contribution is important. After all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not necessarily the charity that matters; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting your contribution quickly and reliably to provide real relief where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed most.
