Lee can’t be counted on County most likely in N.C. to be undercounted in 2010 Census By JONATHAN OWENS

DURHAM — A Durham nonprofit group said Tuesday it projects Lee County at the highest risk of an undercount in the state in the 2010 Census. The Institute for Southern Studies’ “Counting In A Crisis” report release Tuesday found that such factors as Lee’s high

unemployment rate (14.6 percent in January) and large Latino population (11.2 percent) put it at the highest risk in the state for an undercount this year. Plus, Lee County had the third-highest undercount in the 2000 Census, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Accuracy and Coverage Estimate

II released in 2003. The news could be a reason why Dayling Tolan, a partnership specialist for the U.S. Census Bureau, spoke before the Lee County Board of Commissioners on March 15. Tolan said the government had been working to reach groups that

Winds made fire unstoppable within 20 minutes; county official says entire property was insured By BILLY BALL Herald Staff Writer

PITTSBORO — A construction mishap is to blame for the fire that gutted the Chatham County Courthouse in Pittsboro last week, Chatham Fire Marshal Thomas Bender said Tuesday. Bender said the fire started Thursday afternoon when heat from a soldering iron used to repair the copper gutters at the courthouse ignited nearby wood, spreading flames throughout the roof of the historic structure. In a matter of 20 to 30 minutes, the courthouse was probably beyond saving, Bender said, thanks to blustery weather that Thursday afternoon. “Once the wind got in there, it really intensified the burning,” he said. Bender added that the structure’s clock tower acted

SANFORD — The race to see which Republican will be on the November ballot in Lee Count’s fourth district is playing out online almost as much as it is at your doorsteps. GOP candidates Tammy Brogan and Jim Womack have, between them, two Web sites, two blogs, two Twitter accounts, two Facebook pages and a couple of cell phones packed with text messages. The two represent a new breed of politician — one that relies heavily on the (mostly) free online campaigning that can not only reach more voters, but allow those voters to reach and “follow” them at any time. “I really believe that online campaigning has been very successful,” said Brogan, who maintains a blog at http:// “I really enjoy my blog because I can write about my opinion on issues, how I would like to help Lee County move forward and my political convictions.” Womack has similar feelings about his blog, http:// transformingleecounty., which he created in mid-March. He said he hopes it becomes a “stimulating open forum” for topics ranging from the economy, unemployment and socio-economic issues. “By making use of these technologies, I feel properly armed to wage a campaign,” said Womack. Some are calling it Government 2.0 — where candidates

Fitz Fitz is a male 8-month-old Australian shepherd mix. His medium-short-haired coat is a beautiful chocolate with tan accents and so very soft to the touch — we bet you can’t stop petting him! Fitz is kennel trained and that is generally a very good indication that he will be house trained as well. He is treat motivated, so besides being part of a highly-intelligent breed, he responds to obedience commands very well. Fitz gets along well with other pups and would love to have some space to run off his puppy-energy. He’d make a great companion for almost any activity his new family enjoys. Please stop by and give your hand a treat by touching this so-soft puppy. Fitz is current on vaccines and preventatives, micro-chipped, and neutered.

Organizers call April line-up one of best in eight-year history BĂŠla Flek, Rusted Root among notables By JUSTIN GOBLE Herald Correspondent

PITTSBORO — Music, art, environmentalism — the upcoming Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival will have all of these and more. Set for April 22 through April 25, the event will bring together more than 50 musical acts and dance groups at the Shakori Hill festival grounds just off N.C. 87 in Pittsboro. According to event cocoordinator Sara Waters, the upcoming festival is one of best in Shakori Hills’ eight-year history. “It really feels like a big deal this year,â€? she said. Though the festival started out in 2003 as a small collection of musicians, educators and activists, the event has grown to the point where organizers have had to turn acts away. Along with an increase in the amount of performers, this year’s festival has also attracted bigger names than in the past — the lineup features banjo legend (and 13-time Grammy winner) BĂŠla Fleck and jam rock pioneers Rusted Root. “A lot of people are excited about BĂŠla Fleck,â€? Waters said. “It’s a magical process booking the bands and we feel like we’re stepping things up. We’re feeling good that we’re an established festival. It’s an honor to have bands like (BĂŠla Fleck and Rusted Root) say yes. There are big name artists who just play anywhere and those that care about where they perform. Fleck is one of the latter. He really goes along with everything. I’ve seen him at other festivals — he hangs out with the other artists and comes out to jam with them. “That’s something we encourage here, so it was a good fit.â€? Along with those artists, the festival will include local favorites such as indierockers Hammer No More the Fingers and Des Ark, American revivalists The

Annual Shakori Hills rockers Donna The Buffalo will again perform at this year’s festival, slated for April 2225 in Chatham County. Gravy Boys, hip hop group Inflowential and more. “We’re really lucky to have such a rich selection of local bands to choose from,� Waters said. “We don’t just choose those bands because their members live in the area. We choose them because they live here and they’re awesome.� Since Shankori Hills has two festivals each year — another event is scheduled in October — Waters said organizers are able to include a diverse and eclectic group of acts. While many come to Shakori Hills for the sheer amount of music and entertainment, organizers are hoping to use the event as a means to promote environmental awareness as well. Along with scheduling the event to coincide with Earth Day (April 25), organizers invited several environmental groups to the festival. Those organizations will have booths, lead discussions and hold workshops. There will also be a “Sustainability Pavilion� where people can take part in several activities and demonstrations. Organizers are also raising money to make future festivals entirely solarpowered. While there is a chance this message could get lost in the amount of performances going on throughout the weekend, Waters

said the high number of entertainers actually helps to spread the message of environmentalism. “I think what helps is that there’s something for everyone.,â€? she said. “People who come to see BĂŠla Fleck may not like the hip hop acts that are performing. So between watching bands they like, they walk around the festival site. That helps us lure them in. They can walk around, see Sustainability Pavilion and learn how to make biodiesel. “ That “something for everyoneâ€? atmosphere includes activities for the whole family, Waters said. From the start organizers have not only offered special camping sites for families who want to spend the weekend at the festival — they’ve also planned activities for younger kids and teens. That trend is continuing this year, Waters said. “It’s very important to us that this event be family-friendly,â€? she said. “The other co-coordinator (Jordan Puryear) and I were talking about it the other day and we could never pinpoint one reason why it started out like that. There was just this feeling that it had to be that way.â€? Day and weekend passes for the event are still available. For more information, visit www.

Make sure census prediction isn’t right Our View Issue: The Durhambased Institute for Southern Studies says Lee County is most likely to be undercounted in the 2010 Census

Our stance: Filling out the form takes less than a few minutes. Do your part.


t’s disheartening to see the report from the Durham-based Institute for Southern Studies that pegs Lee County as the North Carolina county most likely to be undercounted in the 2010 Census. Not just because an undercount would mean Lee County could miss out on thousands and thousands of dollars in federal and state funding. Not just because an undercount would prove to be disastrous in planning for future schools. Not just because an

undercount would put us in the back of the line for some state projects. It would be disheartening because all of this was supposed to have been prevented. If you’ll recall two years ago, Lee County and its surrounding neighbors — a region in Central North Carolina from Chatham to Fort Bragg — were picked by the federal government to be nine of 10 U.S. counties chosen for the Census “dress rehearsal.” It was going to be

a pretty big deal back then. Sanford’s mayor formed committees to ensure an accurate count. The government sent federal employees to these counties to get them ready. Federal money was spent to prepare for it. A lot of local time was spent (wasted) as well. But because of government budget issues — are we surprised — the Census dress rehearsal never happened. The problems the Durham study says that may prevent an

accurate count — high unemployment, high Latino population (a population less likely to fill out Census forms, the government says) — could have been dealt with. Lee County was undercounted in 2000 and sued the government for a higher population ... and won. We hope it doesn’t come to that this time, too. Do your part to help — fill out your Census form and convince your neighbors to do the same.

Broadway is special


roadway is a special place — and when I say Broadway, I’m speaking of our own Broadway, North Carolina. I’ve long been a fan of the Andy Griffith Show, with Sheriff Andy Taylor, Deputy Barney Fife, Aunt Bee and Opie. Their town, Mayberry, seemed like the idyllic setting — a wonderful place to live or visit. Well, that’s how I — and others — see Broadway. One of those whose love for Broadway is apparent is none other than Clemellyn Welch, who serves on the town board. “I think there are two major reasons that Broadway is so special,” she says. “One is its size. A small town like Broadway is spared some of the problems and stresses that come with life in larger towns and cities. The second factor is the people of Broadway. We have a wonderful citizenry of good, hardworking, friendly folks. That’s just hard to beat.” Welch is one of the individuals who are working on putting the finishing touches on the Second Annual Broadway Our Way Festival, to be held Saturday, April 17, on Main Street in Broadway. It’s being labeled as “More Fun than a Day in NYC.” “I think I can speak for the entire festival committee when I saw that we were absolutely delighted with last year’s festival,” says Welch. “Fortunately, the weather was perfect. People turned out early and stayed late, and we had a wonderful, funfilled day. The original festival organizers were always optimistic, but the event exceeded our expectations.” This year’s event is sure to offer lots to do — and lots of fun — for those who will attend. The schedule includes the Run The Buck 5K run, Ride The Buck 50K/100K bike ride, street fair (with food and craft vendors), kids’ activities, classic cars and farm equipment displays, live entertainment, BBQ cook-off tasting and people’s choice awards, Broadway Idol contest and street dance. So what makes the Broadway Our Way Festival so special? “I think the fact that a town our size could pull this off is pretty special in itself,” says Welch. “I also feel that the people of Broadway are good hosts, and there seemed to me to be a real sense of genuine hospitality at the festival last year. We wanted everyone to have a good time, and it seemed to me that they did. This year we’re working to make it even better!” The barbecue and entertainment alone is enticement in itself. And, the Broadway Idol competition should be a lot of fun. More information on the festival and entry forms are available at or by calling (919) 258-9922. So, if you’re looking for a fun time on April 17, why not visit Broadway? As the festival publicity proclaims, “More Fun than a Day in NYC.”

Letters to the Editor Check ‘yes’ for fair courts, fair elections To the Editor: With the April 15 tax deadline fast approaching, here’s something that even we (as former Republican and Democratic governors) agree is worth your attention: There’s a question on the North Carolina tax return that helps protect our courts from specialinterest influence — and it won’t cost you a dime. The question reads, “Do you want to designate $3 for the N.C. Public Campaign Fund from the taxes you already pay?” The wording varies on different software, so look for these key words: Public Campaign Fund. The fund pays for an independent voter guide about candidates for the state’s highest courts. And it provides those candidates with limited campaign money if they meet several public-trust standards, including refusing to accept special-interest donations. The program is successful and other states are adopting it, but it needs your careful attention. Some tax consultants may skip the question or ask if you want to “contribute” to the fund. But saying “yes” does not change your refund or tax bill; it just directs $3 to the fund from what you’re paying anyway. Please find the question about the Public Campaign Fund on the state tax form and check “yes” for fair courts and fair elections. JAMES E. HOLSHOUSER Jr. JAMES B. HUNT Jr. Former governors

Let’s hear it for new beginnings To the Editor:

Consequences of violence


ALWAL KOI, South Sudan — Landing by cargo plane on a runway of sun-baked mud, close to the border of southern Darfur, I am greeted by an unexpected sight: a political rally. The president of South Sudan, Salva Kiir Mayardit, will be arriving shortly, campaigning for Paul Malong, the endangered, incumbent governor of the local area. The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement — South Sudan’s armed, African rebellion against northern, Arabized rule, now turned ruling political party — is out in force. Activists in red and white march and chant. Soldiers shoo children with sticks. Local tribal leaders carry spears, symbols of their authority. This desolate, parched portion of South Sudan (dry at least until the rainy season turns every road into a mud river) was a battlefield during Sudan’s 22-year civil war, which claimed 2 million lives before ending five years ago. Now it is a political battleground. Campaign posters plaster trucks and stalls at the market, some familiarly calling for “Hope and Change.” Elections in midApril will choose national and local leaders and set the stage for South Sudan’s independence referendum, scheduled for January of next year. The outcome of these elections may determine if South Sudan becomes the world’s newest nation — or stillborn state, plunged back into one of history’s bloodiest civil wars. At opposition headquarters in nearby Aweil — a brick-walled compound, holding an open, thatched meeting room — Gen. Dau Aturjong predicts victory in his independent bid for governor. Dau fought as a guerrilla, gaining a reputation for honesty and restraint. He complains the SPLM has conducted a political purge — putting candidate selection in the hands of illiterate party hacks, dominated by the current governor. “The most qualified people are not being employed,” Dau says, clearly counting himself in that number. He criticizes SPLM corruption and warns of voter intimidation and outright fraud. The next day, President Kiir, looking thin and exhausted, is dismissive of independent challenges to his ruling party, accusing them of being funded by the north. “It is the only way they can weaken the SPLM,” he says. But Kiir is clearly worried enough to bring most of the SPLM leadership to the region to campaign. Will there be violence from whoever loses the election? “We have been all around telling our people not to be violent. People in the south know what violence is. They know the consequences.” Late in the evening, sitting outside under stars obscured by dust, I meet with an official who has ties to both camps. His face hidden by darkness, he worries that an election not seen as “clean” will spark violence. “When you get down to the tribe and clan level, the politicians are not really in control. The north

would say, ‘See, South Sudan is not ready for independence.’” Constructing a new nation out of the material of South Sudan will be difficult under the best of circumstances. In this region, concrete is an almost unknown luxury. Farmers lack not only tractors but plows, doing nearly all of their cultivation with small hoes. The main sources of economic activity — direct aid and oil revenues — encourage more corruption than development. But it is politics that could destroy South Sudan even before its birth. The SPLM, with its heroic, revolutionary past, is the only national institution in a divided, tribal society. But it suffers the same temptations as other revolutionary parties in Africa. Most of South Sudan’s budget goes to the creation of government ghost jobs, allowing the SPLM to pressure public employees for support like a big city political machine. Heavy-handed political tactics by the SPLM elite have encouraged internal division instead of ending it. The wife of South Sudan’s vice president, for example, is currently running as an independent candidate for governor in Unity, one of South Sudan’s 10 states. These conflicts provide opportunities for the skilled, brutal rulers of the north to play side against side, as they have done before. The next generation of rebel leaders could already be in the bush with weapons. To be the successful founders of a new country, SPLM leaders have an interest in accommodating dissent, fighting corruption and ensuring fair elections. As the main sponsor of the SPLM, the United States has an interest in encouraging this kind of democratic legitimacy — the surest way to avoid a failed state and renewed conflict. It would be a terrible irony if South Sudan, a land that has survived by exceptional courage, should die by suicide.

Today’s Prayer For their heart was not steadfast with Him, nor were they faithful in His covenant. (Psalm 78:37) PRAYER: Help me, Father, to be faithful to You, knowing You will help us. Amen.

After 20 years and more than 3,000 customers, Phil McKinney, a veteran sales associate at Sanford Honda, has decided to retire. That’s right — he is retiring and acquiring all the rights to a brand new start. If you have had any dealings with Sanford Honda, we are sure you have come across McKinney with his quiet and friendly demeanor. He has touched many lives during his tenure at Sanford Honda. Because there were never any surprises with Phil, repeat and referral customers were his forte. While we will miss his “getit-done” attitude, we are sure others will benefit — others like his loving family and the Overhills Baptist Church family, where Phil is a faithful member — are rejoicing in his new beginnings. Phil’s loving family includes a beautiful wife Margaret, three sons and a beautiful granddaughter, Cammie. When asked what he will miss most about Sanford Honda and his career, Phil answered, “My friends, of course.” You can’t work in this business and not acquire a large circle of friends and acquaintances who become near and dear to your heart. When asked what he most looks forward to in his retirement, his answer was a resounding, “family time and having time to do things at home I’ve missed over the years.” Sanford Honda and the community he has served for all these years are so elated for Phil McKinney. None is more deserving of this reward for hard work and dedicated service. So, if you see Phil on a dock fishing or at the lanes bowling, please pat him on the back for a job well done.

Land conservation a grassroots effort By MICHAEL FUTCH The Fayetteville Observer

FAYETTEVILLE (MCT) — In 1991, a group of Moore County residents formed a nonprofit land trust aimed at preserving the natural areas, historic places and farmland of the Sandhills. Nineteen years later, the Sandhills Area Land Trust has reached the 10,000acre milestone of permanently protected land in its six-county service region. As of February, the private land conservancy has protected 81 tracts -- a total of 10,554 acres. Of those, 3,554 acres are in Cumberland County. “We are the only land trust, local land trust in the region,” said Candace Williams, executive director of the organization. “The lands that we take are valuable to the community. They have history and really enrich the lives of the citizenry of the region.” The land trust, with offices in Fayetteville and Southern Pines, works with private landowners to negotiate conservation agreements on private

likely wouldn’t report — such as Latinos or the homeless. “We want to make sure everyone is counted to get the accurate number,” Tolan told the commissioners. “It’s the only way we can save people money, because that money is going back to the community, the more we save.” Lee’s neighboring counties fared well in the study, which ranked Moore 97th and Chatham 94th out of 100 counties in likelihood of an undercount, while Harnett ranked 42nd. The study measured how North Carolina counties have been affected by job losses, busi-

property. Its grassroots effort includes the conservation of working farms, water supplies, endangered ecosystems and open space in urban areas. But the trust’s stewardship doesn’t stop with the protection of land. Williams said the group is interested in preserving the culture of the area. “You can’t really separate land from culture. At least, I don’t really believe you can,” she said. “That’s an important part of who we are.” In Cumberland County, the land trust has protected the third line of defense of Averasboro battlefield, which is considered among the best-preserved but most-endangered Civil War sites. A pending project is the 600-acre Gainey Farm in Laurel Hill, a fourth-generation working farm that dates to the early 1800s as part of the Monroe Plantation. Chuck Roe, regional director of the national Land Trust Alliance, called the Sandhills outfit “a good, classic, homegrown land trust.”

Though small compared with other conservation groups in the state, the Sandhills trust is doing innovative work, Roe said. Williams said the land trust is one of only two in the nation that has an agreement with the Army to secure training lands. Williams, who has been working for the land trust for nine years, especially takes pride in the acquisition and conservation of the River Oaks Preserve. That tract has a winding ravine about 50 feet deep and sloping terraces nearly 70 feet above the Cape Fear River. The area includes a waterfall with a drop of 3feet along one of two creeks that slice through the terraces and slopes before joining the river. “It’s a breathtakingly beautiful tract,” Williams said. “We hope it will be our flagship for Cumberland County.” Williams said Cumberland is the only county in the coastal plain with waterfalls. Overall, she said, about 40 waterfalls have been documented in the county, with the 30-foot waterfall in Clark Park

recorded as the highest. “So Cumberland is a treasure trove,” she said. Among her other favorite projects, the land trust has addressed water quality in Drowning Creek, which snakes through Moore and Richmond counties. Together, the organization and conservation partners have protected 14 miles of drinking supply waters along that creek. The Sandhills group is working toward obtaining national accreditation. Some coastal land trusts blanket 23 counties, Williams said, providing expanded opportunities to raise strong endowments. Funding has long been difficult in the Sandhills. “We don’t have the charismatic situation that the mountains and beaches have,” she said. “We don’t have pristine trout waters that the mountains have or the vast marshes of the coastal plain. We are the Sandhills, which is a very unique system and one of the longleaf pine systems — one of the most endangered ecosystems on the earth. That’s really our claim to fame.”

ness layoffs and home foreclosures — economic troubles that officials say make it difficult to get an accurate count. A total of 28 counties in the state have jobless rates of 13 percent or higher, and in 20 counties, the rate has increased three percentage points or more in the last year. Additionally, home foreclosures make it hard for census forms and outreach staff to reach residents. Since 2005, 37 N.C. counties have seen 10 percent or more of residents’ homes go into foreclosure. In 10 counties, the foreclosure rate has shot up 90 percent or more over the last year. “This is the first study to show how the ‘Great Recession’ and housing crisis have put parts of North Carolina at risk of

not getting a full census count in 2010,” said Chris Kromm, author of the report. “It should be a wake-up call to officials and civic leaders to redouble their outreach efforts, especially in hard-hit parts of the state.” An undercount could cause counties to lose millions of federal dollars tied to census data. According to the institute, more than $400 billion in federal funds each year are distributed to states based on census data. In 2008, North Carolina received $11.7 billion in funding tied to the census. The state stands to lose $987 in Medicaid funding alone for each person who’s not counted in 2010. Many census outreach efforts in 2010 have targeted areas which had

large “Hard-to-Count” populations in the 2000 Census. But using data from 2000 may miss areas hard-hit by the recession and housing crisis, which started in 2007. For example, the Census Bureau’s list of 25 N.C. counties with the largest “Hard-to-Count” populations doesn’t include 15 counties that have lost the most jobs and homes since 2005. “In the coming months, an accurate Census count will depend on groups reaching out to the new ‘Hard-toCount’ populations created by the big changes in North Carolina’s economy,” said Kromm. “If hard-hit counties lose federal funding because of job layoffs and vacant homes, it will make a bad situation even worse.”

woman Carolyn Miller. “That building right there is Chatham County,” Bender said as he surveyed the charred structure Tuesday afternoon. Crews began removing debris from the building last weekend, piling up mounds of blackened materials outside the courthouse. The traffic circle that surrounds the courthouse continued to be closed for the work, forcing motorists to reroute around the heart of Pittsboro. Bender said investigators pinpointed the source of the blaze to the soldering iron fairly quickly, and the State Bureau of Investigation has already interviewed the construction workers believed to have caused the accident. Rumors that workers had touched off the fire spread throughout an emotional crowd of onlookers Friday, but the county was not able to confirm its findings until Tuesday. Maryland-based Progressive Contracting Company Inc., which has an office on Charlotte Avenue in Sanford, was the general contractor for the renovations at the courthouse, although Bender said he believes the accident was caused by a subcontracted worker. Progressive Contracting Vice President Todd Snyder said his company has pledged to work with authorities and the county to salvage the courthouse as much as possible. Snyder declined to name the subcontractor that was performing the roofing work last Thursday, but he said the company’s workers have more than 40 years of experience on the job. “We share the concern of the community,” he said. “We’re compassionate about historic buildings. Anytime we see, let alone are involved, in and I am excited to see what interest that stirs up,” she said. “I have also have three people post questions asking where I fall on certain issues ... for me, this is what it is all about since I can’t personally meet and speak with every person in Lee County. Maybe a large portion of them will be able to post questions and concerns to me.” Lilley’s election page has seen an increase in activity in the past week, with “members” posting questions that Lilley answers in the Facebook “comments” section. A recent question asked her thoughts on the dress code, to which Lilley posted a 255-word response. Not every local can-

an incident like this, it’s disheartening.” Workers used cranes to remove the top levels of the courthouse early this week, offering motorists a jarring view of the once-blocked treeline as they traveled south on U.S. 15-501 from Chapel Hill. County officials said earlier this week that an initial assessment of the courthouse indicates the brick walls at its foundation may be viable for repair work without having to be completely torn down. Chatham County Manager Charlie Horne said in a press release Tuesday that the county has property insurance on all of its facilities. “We still do not have an estimate of the potential rebuilding cost until we know for sure what parts of the existing courthouse can be saved,” county Board of Commissioners Chairwoman Sally Kost said in the release. Miller said one bright spot in the dreary story is the Chatham Historical Society Museum. The museum, which stored historic artifacts and documents, was located in the southwest corner of the courthouse, which was the corner that suffered the least damage in the fire. Miller said the Historic Society has already removed some items and documents that sustained relatively minor damage, while other items suffered from water damage in the firefighting effort. “There are some items that are completely intact,” Miller said. “They have a little smokey smell to it.” She said she knows of a Masonic Lodge apron from the 1800s that survived none the worse for wear. “That was good news,” Miller said. “They were very happy with what made it.”

School board candidate John Bonardi Jr., said online campaigning just isn’t an important and necessary tool for him. “I will probably use emails to get the vote out the closer it gets to early voting,” Bonardi said. District 3 Commissioner candidate Linda Shook said she has a Facebook account, but has yet to use it for campaign purposes. “I will probably do so after the May elections,” she said. “After May, we will have a Lee County conservative blog set up for issues relating to county, state and federal Republican races.”

STATE BRIEFS Teamsters endorses Cal Cunningham for Senate bid

RALEIGH (AP) — The Teamsters union is endorsing former state Sen. Cal Cunningham in his Democratic primary for U.S. Senate. The Teamsters said on Tuesday that members were impressed by Cunningham’s plans to fight China’s trade policies and renegotiate trade agreements in North and Central America. The union said it has more than 13,000 members in North Carolina. Meanwhile, former U.S. Senator Robert Morgan endorsed Secretary of State Elaine Marshall for the Democratic nomination. He said Marshall has the leadership needed in Washington. Cunningham and Marshall are locked in a primary race along with Chapel Hill attorney Ken Lewis.

Elderly population is focus of Perdue order

RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s elderly population is expected to double in the next 20 years and Gov. Beverly Perdue wants state agencies to be prepared for the influx and the benefits it could bring. Perdue said she signed an executive order on Tuesday directing state offices to figure out ways to respond to the predicted aging work force, keep senior adults safe and benefit from their life skills as volunteers. The state Division of Aging and other groups will survey agencies to see what impact the elderly population is having on their planning. A study last year said North Carolina residents at least 65 years old will double to 2.2 million, or 18 percent of the population, by 2030.

Gore gets camera-shy, limits media

RALEIGH (AP) — Former Vice President Al Gore may have won an Oscar for his documentary on global warming, but he appears to be a little cool toward the camera for a speech in North Carolina. A Gore aide said Tuesday that media members will only be allowed to record video and audio of the first five minutes of Gore’s talk at Duke University on April 8. Photography will also be limited. Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider

said the restrictions are standard for his talks but she wouldn’t say why they are in place. Duke spokeswoman Scottee Cantrell said Gore will speak for about 45 minutes and take questions collected from students. Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for his advocacy of environmental issues, particularly his push to highlight global warming.

Marine on trial for deadly trust-building game JACKSONVILLE (AP) — North Carolina prosecutors are expected to open their case against a former Camp Lejeune Marine charged with killing a friend during a deadly game reminiscent of Russian roulette. The Daily News of Jacksonville reported Tuesday that 21-year-old Michael Everett Smith of Erie, Ohio, is charged with murder. Smith’s roommate, 19-year-old Bryan Thorkelson of Sparta, died of a gunshot wound to the head after a game which has players taking turns pointing a loaded handgun at each other. The game has cropped up in barracks across Iraq and Afghanistan, supposedly to make a serviceman trust a comrade enough that he would stare into the other Marine’s gun barrel. Last September, a Marine pleaded guilty at Camp Lejeune to involuntary manslaughter for a similar death in Iraq.

Lawyer wants delay in murder trial of ex-Marine JACKSONVILLE (AP) — The lawyer for a former North Carolina-based Marine accused of killing a pregnant colleague has asked to delay the trial three months because of a knee injury. In a motion filed on Monday, Richard McNeil said a knee injury he suffered in January has “hampered” his ability to prepare for the trial. McNeil said if the motion is denied, Cesar Laurean’s rights to a fair trial will be violated. The trial is scheduled to begin in June. Laurean is charged with murder in the death of 20year-old Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach of Vandalia, Ohio. He fled to Mexico shortly before her charred remains were found buried in his backyard in Jacksonville in January 2008. He was arrested in April 2008 and extradited to North Carolina last year.

RALEIGH — A prosecutor examining whether campaign contributions made to Gov. Beverly Perdue and possibly others are illegal has sealed records in the case, a state elections official said Tuesday in a move that raises the stakes of the investigation. New Hanover County District Attorney Ben David closed the file on donations from nine people who work or are linked to Atlantic Corp. of Wilmington, said State Board of Elections Executive Director Gary Bartlett. Board files are closed when possible criminal wrongdoing is being investigated. The board got involved after The Bev Perdue Committee announced on March 19 it was forfeiting $48,000 in contributions from 2005 to 2008 because her campaign was worried the donors may have been unlawfully reimbursed by

NEW YORK (AP) — Bank of America Corp. and Merrill Lynch have made female employees “second-class citizens” by purposely giving their male counterparts opportunities to make more money, according to a gender discrimination lawsuit filed Tuesday. The suit brought in federal court in Brooklyn by two former Bank of America financial advisers and

the company and Carter met with board officials and David’s office the day before Perdue’s committee forfeited the donations. Carter has promised to cooperate, Murchison said. Senate leader Marc Basnight’s campaign also received $44,500 from the same people. His office said he would forfeit the money if the board determined it was found to have been given unlawfully. Representatives for Basnight and Perdue, both Democrats, have said they had no reason to believe the donations were unlawful. Perdue said last week that while her campaign got rid of the donations out of an abundance of caution, the law places the burden on donors — not candidates — to give lawfully. State Republican Party Chairman Tom Fetzer said Perdue blaming questionable giving on donors “is a cop-out.”

“You’re responsible. You’re the captain of the ship,” Fetzer said Monday. It was Fetzer who raised questions about multiple contributions Atlantic Corp. employees gave at or near the same date to Perdue’s campaign of $4,000 — the maximum amount allowed in each campaign period. He’s demanded that the State Board of Elections hold a public investigative hearing into Perdue’s campaign finances. Without directly responding to Fetzer’s demands, Bartlett said the board accepts on its face the origin and legality of a donation unless there is contrary evidence. He said the board’s investigatory powers must be balanced by ensuring the freedom of speech and association for those who want to give to campaigns. “We do not want to do anything that causes a chill on that,” he said.

their employer. State laws prevent corporate campaign contributions and anyone from giving on behalf of someone else. Someone breaking those laws can be charged with a misdemeanor and face monetary penalties. Bartlett declined to discuss details about the investigation except that he and his staff spoke with David and that it went beyond donations received by Perdue. “We’re doing our job,” Bartlett said. Atlantic Corp., which sells industrial packaging products, is owned by Rusty Carter, a political fundraiser who was subpoenaed by the State Board of Elections for its hearing into unreported airplane flights by the campaign committee of former Gov. Mike Easley. Carter wasn’t called to testify. Michael Murchison, an attorney for Atlantic, said representatives for

Suicide-slaying suspected in 4 deaths Lawyer: Cops

CHARLOTTE (AP) — Police on Tuesday said a North Carolina father sent his daughter to school for two weeks with a dire warning: Tell anyone about your two dead siblings at home, and I’ll kill you and your brother, too. She didn’t tell anyone. In fact, police said no one found out the children and their mother were dead until officers came to Kenneth Jermaine Chapman’s door Monday night to check on his wife because her uncle hadn’t heard from her for a while. When police arrived, Chapman went upstairs and sent the 10-year-old girl and her 2-year-old half brother outside. He shot at officers from the top of the stairs, police said. Then came more gunshots. Inside, officers found Chapman dead. The bodies of his wife’s teenage daughter and the couple’s baby daughter were in a locked bedroom. A few hours later, authorities found Chapman’s wife dead at a larger apartment the couple moved out of a few weeks ago. Investigators said the surviving girl told them her dad and stepmom argued two weeks ago, and she didn’t see 34-year-old Nateesha Ward Chapman again. That night, she heard her 13-year-old stepsister Na’Jhae Parker scream, then gunshots. Her half sister, 13-monthold Nakyiah Jael Chap-

Police on scene investigate an apparent murder-suicide at the Berkshire Apartments on Providence Square Drive in south Charlotte Tuesday. man, started screaming too. Then more gunshots. Dad came out, locked the door and pointed the gun at the girl. Police said the girl told her father, “don’t kill me.” He said he wouldn’t kill her then because she was his first-born daughter — nor would he kill the 2-year-old, his first-born son. But he said he’d kill them if they told anyone. “Her bravery and composure was truly remarkable,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Capt. Paul Zinkann said, pausing to regain his composure at a Tuesday news conference. “She, her little brother are with family members and are being cared for now.” Carol Latimer, who lived next to the family for five months, said she never saw the couple

fight. The Chapmans kept to themselves, and Latimer’s conversations with Nateesha Chapman never went beyond making sure the kids got to the bus stop or other child care issues. “She was really closed as far as her personal life,” Latimer said. “We didn’t talk much unless she needed help.” Latimer talked even more rarely with Kenneth Chapman. She knew he worked the night shift, but never found out where. He only said a few words when she asked him questions. The family member she got to know the best was the 10-yearold girl. They sat outside and ate fruit snacks one day after school when her dad and stepmom weren’t home.

Latimer said the couple moved out of the home where Nateesha Chapman’s body was found weeks ago, and she never heard anything from the apartment or saw anyone over there again until police arrived early Tuesday morning. Neighbors at the couple’s other home said they only saw them move in and couldn’t remember seeing an adult woman at the home at all. Jerome Sanders didn’t even know they had dogs until he heard them barking as police talked to him after discovering the bodies. “They just seemed typical, what little I saw,” Sanders said. “I heard a baby crying once, but that was about it.” Court records show an eviction notice was served on the apartment where Nateesha Chapman’s body was found, but shed little other light on whether they were having financial trouble. Calls to family members of the couple went unanswered Tuesday. Investigators are still trying to figure out not only why Kenneth Chapman killed his family, but why he tried to hide it for weeks and acted like nothing happened.

GREENSBORO (AP) — Lawyers for one of two suspects accused in the 2008 killing of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student body president Eve Carson said their client was beaten by police when he was arrested. Suspect Demario Atwater was assaulted by Durham police while he was laying on the sidewalk and while handcuffed in a police car, according to court documents filed Monday by his attorneys. Atwater’s lawyers are trying to suppress the statement he made to police after his arrest. Atwater faces a murder charge in state court, as well as kidnapping and carjacking in federal court. A conviction in either court could bring the death penalty. Durham Police Chief Jose Lopez said Tuesday neither Atwater nor his attorneys had filed a complaint alleging excessive force. “It never comes as a surprise to me when an attorney makes assertions like this, especially two years after the fact. So I’m not really surprised by it,” he said. U.S. attorney spokeswoman Lynne Klauer and Chapel Hill police declined to comment. With Atwater’s federal trial scheduled for May, lawyers have filed numerous court documents in recent months to try to keep key information out of the trial. The defense wants the statement Atwater gave to police and the videotape of that threehour interview thrown out, according to court documents, because the lawyers claimed Atwater was coerced and denied

several requests for legal counsel. Carson, a 22-year-old from Athens, Ga., was found shot to death in a Chapel Hill neighborhood in March 2008, nearly a mile from campus. Laurence A. Lovette, 19, also is accused of murder in the case. He does not face the death penalty because at the time he was 17 and deemed too young by the U.S. Supreme Court to face execution. Photographs and TV videotape of Atwater’s arrest show the Durham man with a gash and bruise on his cheek. Atwater expressed fears of continued physical abuse by law enforcement officers 78 times during the three hours of questioning by Chapel Hill police when he was arrested March 12, 2008, according to court documents filed by his attorneys. “The interrogating officer was clearly aware of Mr. Atwater’s fear of further beatings,” the defense lawyers said, “and repeatedly tried (unsuccessfully) to reassure the defendant that no harm would come to him in the custody of the Chapel Hill Police (as opposed to the Durham police). Mr. Atwater even declined an offer of a drink from the officer, indicating that he believed the police would ’put something’ in his drink; i.e. drug or poison him with it.” The interrogating officer responded by bringing Atwater an unopened can of Coke, telling him he could open it himself and wipe it down, according to the documents.

STEALTH BRACES While many adults wish they could improve the appearance of crooked, crowded, and otherwise misaligned teeth, they do not wish to go through very visible and obvious treatment with traditional braces. As much as ceramic brackets have camouflaged the look of fixed orthodontic appliances, many people are simply too self-conscious to wear them. With these older, prospective orthodontic patients in mind, the Invisalign® system offers itself as a nearly invisible alternative. By utilizing a series of clear, removable tooth aligners, adult patients can avoid traditional treatment with its system of fixed brackets, rubber bands, and wires. While these “stealth” braces may cost more, many patients find that they are well worth the price in terms of drawing less attention. Unlike wearers of traditional braces, Invisalign® wearers can eat and drink what they want - and then brush and floss with ease - by simply removing the aligners. In addition, Invisalign® wearers are free from the mouth abrasions that traditional metal braces often produce. To find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign®, call SANDHILLS ORTHODONTICS today at (919) 718-9188 to make an appointment for a free consultation. Our office is located at 1129 Carthage Street. Committed to helping you achieve the smile you deserve - a healthy, beautiful one. P.S. Clear, invisible Invisalign® aligners effectively move teeth without interfering with adult patients’ social and work lives.

The price tag puts the Leaf, which can go up to 100 miles on a single charge from a home outlet, within reach of mainstream car buyers, and it also will force competitors to respond when they introduce their cars.

Dems seize on GOP sex nightclub spending flap

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Democratic groups tried Tuesday to make a campaign issue out of news that the national Republican Party spent $1,946 at a sex-themed California nightclub, but GOP activists said party chairman Michael Steele will weather the hubbub. The Republican National Committee fired a staffer who helped organize the Jan. 31 visit to Voyeur Hollywood West, which features topless dancers, bondage outfits and erotic themes. It said it will recoup the money from a donor who paid the tab and was reimbursed by the party on Feb. 4. The episode raises new questions about Steeleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oversight of the RNC. But party officials said Steele knew nothing of the nightclub visit by a group of young Republicans, which was listed in a federally required financial disclosure report, and they promised to tighten accounting practices. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee pressed numerous GOP candidates to say whether Steele should remain as head of the NRC. But GOP activists predicted the matter would blow over soon.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama stepped carefully when talking for the first time about the conservative tea party movement, acknowledging it has legitimate concerns about federal reach and spending, but he contended the core of the loose anti-government network is â&#x20AC;&#x153;on the fringe.â&#x20AC;? The latest political phenomenon, barely a year old, has leaders on both sides of the political spectrum puzzled. Republicans want to co-opt the passion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and votes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of tea party disciples to help them oust Democrats from congressional control in the fall midterm elections, without losing other voters in the process. As for Democrats, they have focused mainly on trying to marginalize and ignore them. For instance, several Democratic officials say thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no apparent strategy yet at the White House for combatting the networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing

Stocks waver after upbeat economic data NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The stock market moved closer to closing out another strong quarter with a modest advance Tuesday. The Dow Jones industrial average added 12 points for its fourth straight gain following a rise in technology stocks. Apple and Verizon jumped after The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple was making phones that could be used on Verizonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s network. With one day left in the January-March quarter, the Dow has gained 4.6 percent for the period. The index is on track for its best first-quarter performance since 1999. Stocks have now had a nearly unbroken advance since early March of last year. The Dow made an even larger leap of 7.4 percent in the fourth quarter.

But the leaderless coalition, born in communities from coast to coast shortly after Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inauguration last year, seems to have some staying power. A Washington Post poll taken last week showed that more people view the movement favorably than unfavorably â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and that 62 percent believe it has either the right amount or not enough influence on the

Republican Party. The group is decidedly conservative and libertarian, but otherwise diverse, divided over most everything except the need for limited government, less spending and an end to Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policies.

Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cautious handling of the topic, when asked about it Monday by a television interviewer. The president said on NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Todayâ&#x20AC;? show that the movement is built around a â&#x20AC;&#x153;core groupâ&#x20AC;? of people who question whether he is a U.S. citizen and believe he is a socialist. Beyond that, however, he said he recognizes that the movement involves people with â&#x20AC;&#x153;mainstream, legitimate concernsâ&#x20AC;? about the national debt, government expansion and big spending. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t paint in broad brush and say that everybody who is involved or have gone to a tea party rally or meeting are somehow on the fringe,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a broader circle around that core group of people who are legitimately concerned about the deficit, who are legitimately concerned that the federal government may be taking on too much.â&#x20AC;?

into law by a beaming president. The new law makes a series of changes to the massive health insurance reform bill that he signed into law with even greater fanfare last week. Those fixes included removing some specials deals that had angered the public and providing more money for poorer and middleincome individuals and families to help them buy health insurance. But during an appearance at a community college in suburban Virginia, he emphasized the overshadowed part of the bill: education. In this final piece of health reform, Democrats added in a restructuring of the way the government handles loans affecting millions of students. The law strips banks of their role as middlemen in federal student loans and puts the government in charge. The president said that change would save

more than $60 billion over the next 10 years, which in turn would be used to boost Pell Grants for students and reinvest in community colleges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand with the banks and the financial industries in this fight â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not why I came to Washington â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and neither did any of the members of Congress who are here today,â&#x20AC;? Obama said to a supportive crowd at Northern Virginia Community College. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We stood with you. We stood with Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students.â&#x20AC;? Private lenders still will make student loans that are not backed by the government, and they still will have contracts to service some federal loans. But the change reflected in the new law represents a significant loss in what has been a $70 billion business for the banking industry. Among many other features, the new law is expected to make it easier

for some college graduates to repay loans. The government will essentially guarantee that workers in low-paying jobs will be able to reduce their payments. Current law caps monthly payments at 15 percent of these workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; incomes; the new law will lower the cap to 10 percent. About half of undergraduates receive federal student aid and about 8.5 million students are going to college with the help of Pell Grants. Obama was effusive in his praise for the lawmakers who stood by him on the health care and education legislation. Many of them face tough sells in their home districts over the massive health care legislation, a complex mix of crackdowns on the insurance industry, coverage expansions and insurance mandates. He was introduced by Dr. Jill Biden, the vice presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, who teaches English there.

NATION BRIEFS Body parts found at Kansas medical waste company

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Three individuals have been identified so far among six heads and numerous other human body parts found in a truck at a Kansas medical waste facility, including at least one man who was to have been cremated, a coroner said Tuesday. Sealed plastic bags containing the parts were found last week in 12 large red plastic tubs inside a delivery truck at a Stericycle Inc. facility in Kansas City, Kan., that disposes of medical waste. Stericycle disposes of waste such as operating room debris or syringes but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t incinerate major body parts, Wyandotte County coroner Alan C. Hancock said. Each tub had a shipping label from The Learning Center, which is affiliated with Bio Care, an Albuquerque, New Mexico company that distributes bodies for medical research. A man who answered the phone Tuesday at Bio Care and identified himself only as Paul said his company wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t involved. Paul Montano is listed as the owner of Bio Care, also known as Bio Care Southwest.

Philly charter school moonlights as a nightclub

Boy Scouts open defense in Oregon $25 million case PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Attorneys for the Boy Scouts of America have begun their defense of a $25 million lawsuit filed by an Oregon man who was sexually abused decades ago. The 37-year-old victim was molested in the early 1980s by assistant Scoutmaster Timur Dykes, who was convicted three times of molesting boys and provided a videotaped deposition in which he acknowledged assaulting the victim. The trial on the lawsuit began two weeks ago. It claims Boy Scout leaders knew Dykes had been convicted but allowed him to continue Scouting activities. The case hinges partly on an extensive file the Boy Scouts kept between 1966 to 1984 on suspected molesters among its adult volunteers.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Who knew a school cafeteria could be so much fun? A space where hundreds of Philadelphia charter school students have been eating their lunches during mundane weekdays has been doubling in its off-hours as nightclub, offering dancing and drinking despite an expired liquor license.

City and school officials are not happy about the arrangement between Club Damani and the Harambee Institute of Science and Technology Charter School, which serves about 450 children in kindergarten through eighth grade. Superintendent Arlene Ackerman said in a letter to Harambee on Monday that â&#x20AC;&#x153;a school and a nightclub cannot coexist in the same space and (the arrangement) must cease immediately,â&#x20AC;? according to a school district statement. As a charter school, Harambee receives about $3.5 million annually in public funds but operates independently of the district. Officials at Harambee, which is on spring break this week, could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

Feds: Militia had to be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;taken downâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; It started inside a trailer home in rural Michigan, where a small family gathered before bed for prayer. Years later, the private devotions had evolved into a small militia of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christian warriorsâ&#x20AC;? preparing to fight the Antichrist. The changes in David Brian Stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal theology partly destroyed his marriage, his former wife says, and prosecutors claim they later led him to hatch a plot to kill police officers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a violent act the militia hoped would touch off an uprising against the government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The time had come that we needed to arrest them and take them down,â&#x20AC;? U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade said Tuesday in an interview with The Associated Press. Prosecutors believe that Stone, 44, of Clayton, is the ringleader of the Hutaree militia, a name the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Web site says they created to mean â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christian warrior.â&#x20AC;? He was among eight members arrested during a series of weekend raids in three Midwestern states, which federal officials said they carried out after monitoring the group since last summer and learning they planned to launch their attack next month. A ninth defendant â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, Joshua Matthew Stone â&#x20AC;&#x201D; turned himself in late Monday night following an hours-long standoff with FBI agents and police near a wooded area southwest of Detroit the group had used for training. He and the others face charges that include seditious conspiracy, or

Trailers on property belonging to David Brian Stone, the leader of Midwest Christian militia Hutaree are shown Monday the day after an FBI raid in Clayton, Mich. plotting to levy war against the U.S. Each of the suspects has requested a public defender, and bond hearings are scheduled for Wednesday. Donna Stone, 44, said her ex-husband created the legal problems now faced by her stepson, Joshua Stone, and her 19year-old son, David Brian Stone Jr., by involving them in a militia that grew out of his faith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I honestly feel, and think, their dad never told either of those boys what they were getting into,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This a bunch of garbage, these charges. There is no way my son would do these things.â&#x20AC;? Donna Stone said she met David Brian Stone in the late 1990s in a Meijer grocery superstore where she worked. He courted her and soon afterward, she and her son, Sean Stetten, moved into his small trailer in Lenawee County, near the Ohio state line. The boys were raised as brothers, and David Brian Stone legally adopted Sean, whose name was changed to

David Brian Stone Jr. Both boys were homeschooled and at night, the family would pray together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;David would preach out of the Bible,â&#x20AC;? said Donna Stone, who said she was married to David Brian Stone for about six years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He would start at the beginning of Genesis and go to Revelations. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get into Revelations because we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree on it. David said it was supposed to be different. He had his own views. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when I thought it was time for me to go.â&#x20AC;? The Hutaree Web site quotes several Bible passages and declares: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe that one day, as prophecy says, there will be an Anti-Christ. ... Jesus wanted us to be ready to defend ourselves using the sword and stay alive using equipment.â&#x20AC;? Chip Berlet, a senior analyst with Political Research Associates, a think tank based in Somerville, Mass., said Hutareeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s online writings suggest the group fits into a Christian apocalyptic ideology that believes the U.S. government is â&#x20AC;&#x153;in league with

Satanâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;the chief agent of Satan is the Antichrist.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this particular reading of apocalyptic prophecy, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge battle between good and evil,â&#x20AC;? said Berlet, whose group studies right-wing extremists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Powerful, political elected officials ... are conspiring with Satan to build a one-world government.â&#x20AC;? McQuade downplayed the role religious ideology played in the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alleged plans, saying the â&#x20AC;&#x153;most troublingâ&#x20AC;? finding of their investigation into the Hutaree were the details of their alleged plot. Prosecutors have said the militia planned to make a false 911 call, kill responding police officers and then use a bomb to kill many more at the funeral. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we were focused on here is their conduct, not on their religion. And what they have talked about is being very anti-government,â&#x20AC;? McQuade said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They fear this â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;new world orderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and they thought that it was their job to fight against government â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the federal government in particular.â&#x20AC;?

Sparks goes Hollywood again in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Last Songâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Patrick Stewart returns to Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;way in Mamet revival


SANTA MONICA, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The romantic melodrama machine that is Nicholas Sparks keeps running at full capacity. The prolific author, whose weepy love stories include the Hollywood hits â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Notebookâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear John,â&#x20AC;? returns to the big-screen Wednesday with â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Last Song,â&#x20AC;? which he wrote specifically for Miley Cyrus. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just a case of writing an original movie script for Cyrus. Though the screenplay did come first, Sparks developed the story with the same detail he applies to his books. Working backward, once the script was done, Sparks sat down to write the novel. Having already written the movie version, Sparks thought the novel would be a breeze. No such luck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After I wrote the screenplay, I thought, oh great, this is it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do a novelization. Nope. That novel was so challenging to write on a number of levels that had nothing to do with the screenplay,â&#x20AC;? Sparks said in an interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to make it its own unique work, because primarily, I am a novelist. I wanted a really good novel.â&#x20AC;?

Nicholas Sparks, author of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Last Songâ&#x20AC;?, a movie starring Miley Cyrus, poses for portrait in Santa Monica, Calif. Sparks, 44, finished the book as production was ready to start on the movie last year. The novel was published last fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Last Songâ&#x20AC;? casts â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hannah Montanaâ&#x20AC;? star Cyrus as a sullen teen reluctantly spending a summer with her estranged father (Greg Kinnear), a pianist and composer who hopes his gifted daughter will resume her own studies at the keyboard. Sparks let Cyrus choose her characterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, and he wove in a few other themes and attributes in which she was

interested. Cyrus never was looking over Sparksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shoulder as he wrote, though. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I let him do his thing. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want someone to do that to me when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m songwriting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very difficult when somethingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not finished, and people are giving you advice,â&#x20AC;? Cyrus said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end, I was definitely thrilled. If there was anything, I would have told him, but there was nothing wrong.â&#x20AC;? As usual for Sparksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stories, romance and tragedy mix throughout â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Last Song.â&#x20AC;? Sparks has endured his

own misfortunes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; his mother died in a horseback-riding accident, his father in a car crash, and his sister died of cancer. The beefy former college track star looks more the sort to turn to action thrillers than love stories. Yet since â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Notebookâ&#x20AC;? came out in 1996, Sparks has owned the teary romance genre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Notebookâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;was a story I thought I could write, and I had some success. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve literally kept doing that over and over, and I found that it is a genre that is immensely difficult,â&#x20AC;? Sparks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hard to

make a career out of it. And why is that? Because you read these novels with a different goal than you read other novels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You read thrillers because you know kind of what to expect. You know that in the end, the bad guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get caught. You read me because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to expect. Is it going to be happy? Do they get together? Do they not? Does someone die? Does Richard Gere drive off a cliff in South America? You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, and so you read for a surprise. And to be honest, the more books you write, the harder it is to surprise people.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s managed to hold Hollywoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest. Along with â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Last Song,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Notebookâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear John,â&#x20AC;? Sparksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; books â&#x20AC;&#x153;Message in a Bottleâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Walk to Rememberâ&#x20AC;? have been adapted into movies, while â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Lucky Oneâ&#x20AC;? also is headed to the big screen. Meanwhile, Sparks began his latest novel Feb. 17 and needs to finish it by May so his publisher can have it out this fall. Does he like that sort of pressure? â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, I do not,â&#x20AC;? Sparks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a happy person working under it, but I work well under it.â&#x20AC;?

Rip Torn pleads not guilty to burglary, firearms charges LITCHFIELD, Conn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Actor Rip Torn pleaded not guilty Tuesday to burglary and firearms charges stemming from his January arrest inside a Connecticut bank after hours. State police have said the 79-yearold Emmy award winner was so intoxicated on the night of Torn Jan. 29 that he broke into the Litchfield Bancorp branch with a loaded gun, thinking it was his home in Salisbury in northwestern Connecticut. Torn is charged with criminal trespass, carrying a gun without a permit, carrying a gun while intoxicated, burglary and criminal mischief. Superior Court Judge James P. Ginocchio allowed him to remain free on $100,000 bond, under the condition that he stay away from alcohol. Torn said he was more than happy to comply. Tornâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney, A. Thomas Waterfall, said the actor, who is currently appearing in the movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Happy Tears,â&#x20AC;? has moved from an inpatient to an outpatient rehabilitation program.

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Dragged deeper than ever into the clerical sex abuse scandal, the Vatican is launching a legal defense that the church hopes will shield the pope from a lawsuit in Kentucky seeking to have him deposed. Court documents obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press show that Vatican lawyers plan to argue that the pope has immunity as head of state, that American bishops who oversaw abusive priests weren’t employees of the Vatican, and that a 1962 document is not the “smoking gun” that provides proof of a cover-up. The Holy See is trying to fend off the first U.S. case to reach the stage of determining whether victims actually have a claim against the Vatican itself for negligence for allegedly failing to alert police or the public about Roman Catholic priests who molested children. The case was filed in 2004 in Kentucky by three men who claim they were abused by priests and claim negligence by the Vatican.

showed the babies — at least one of whom was stuffed in a yellow plastic bag marked “medical waste” — strewn along a dirt riverbank near a highway overpass. A few wore diapers. All were caked in mud. Some of the babies appeared several months old, while the official Xinhua News Agency said the bodies included fetuses. Local residents and firefighters recovered the bodies Monday after they were discovered under a bridge spanning the Guangfu River on the outskirts of Jining in Shandong province.

Colombian rebels free soldier held for 12 years FLORENCIA, Colombia (AP) — A Colombian soldier held hostage for more than 12 years was freed by rebels Tuesday and reunited with his family, ending an ordeal that prompted his father to hike halfway across the country wearing a symbolic chain around his neck to press for his son’s release. Sgt. Pablo Emilio Moncayo was one of the longest-held hostages of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or the FARC. He was 19 when taken captive during an attack on a mountain outpost on Dec. 21, 1997. Moncayo was flown to the city of Florencia on a Brazilian helicopter that picked him up at an unannounced spot in southern Colombia where the rebels turned him over to a humanitarian team that included International Red Cross officials and a Colombian senator.

Obama, Sarkozy push for UN sanctions WASHINGTON (AP) — With the president of France at his side, President Barack Obama declared Tuesday he hopes to have international sanctions against Iran in place “within weeks,” not months, because of its continuing nuclear program. But he acknowledged he still lacks full support at the United Nations. “Do we have unanimity in the international community? Not yet,” Obama said. “And that’s something that we have to work on.” Obama said he and French President Nicolas Sarkozy are “inseparable” in their thinking on the subject. For his part, Sarkozy told reporters, “Iran cannot continue its mad race” toward acquiring nuclear weapons. “The time has come to take decisions,” he said. On the U.N. Security Council, veto-wielding permanent members Russia and China have expressed reservations toward a tougher set of sanctions, as have several of the rotating members who do not have veto powers. Obama said he understands that countries that have business ties with Iran, especially those who depend on Iran for oil imports, might have reservations. But Obama said that, while “the door remains open if the Iranians

French President Nicolas Sarkozy President Barack Obama are seen during a news conference in the East Room of the White House on Tuesday in Washington. choose to walk though it,” there have been no signs that they are close to moving back from their nuclear program — and patience has all but run out. “My hope is that we are going to get this done this spring. So I’m not interested in waiting months for a sanctions regime to be in place. I’m interested in seeing that regime in place in weeks.” Earlier Tuesday, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton predicted new sanctions would be forthcoming, hinting that skeptical nations such as China and Russia would eventually come along. At the conclusion of an international meeting of eight major powers in Quebec, Clinton cited a growing alarm around the world

about the consequences of a nuclear-armed Iran. A senior French official said after the White House meeting that key Western players including France are ready to consider unilateral sanctions if they can’t get a strong enough U.N. resolution passed. The official spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with the French custom. Obama and Sarkozy met privately in the Oval Office and later planned dinner at the White House with their wives, Michelle Obama and French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. Obama said he and the French president discussed a wide range of global issues, including the financial regulatory overhaul and peace negotiations in the Middle

East. Sarkozy also said he stands with the United States in condemning recent Israeli settlement activity in east Jerusalem. Sarkozy praised Obama for trying to engage the two sides in peace talks. Sarkozy said that the “absence of peace” in the region “is a problem for all of us” — and that it feeds terrorism around the world. On a subject on which the two presidents don’t see eye-to-eye, Sarkozy expressed a widespread European contention that the award of a $35 billion U.S. Air Force refueling tanker plane was rigged to favor U.S. aerospace giant Boeing over an alliance of the parent of Europe’s Airbus and the U.S. Lockheed-Martin company.

LAVIN AGREES TO COACH AT ST. JOHN’S NEW YORK (AP) — Former UCLA coach Steve Lavin agreed to become the basketball coach at St. John’s on Tuesday. The school said a news conference to introduce Lavin would be held Wednesday. Lavin has been an analyst for ESPN since UCLA fired him in 2003. He had a 145-78 record with UCLA, leading the school to the NCAA tournament’s round of 16 five times. The Bruins reached the final eight in 1997, his first season. St. John’s, which fired Norm Roberts after six seasons, has not been to the NCAA tournament since 2002. The Red Storm lost to Memphis in the first round of the NIT to finish the season at 17-16, giving Roberts an 81-101 record with the school. St. John’s returns all five starters and 94 percent of its scoring from last season’s team.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Butler University says it has confiscated and redistributed 178 student tickets for the NCAA Final Four in Indianapolis. Butler spokesman Marc Allan says the NCAA allotted the university 660 student tickets for Saturday’s semifinals. He says many of those tickets were reserved on a Web site for some cheerleaders, band members and others with the provision they not share the logon information. However, word about the site spread quickly Monday and all the tickets were taken before the general student population had a chance to buy them. Allan says 178 of the tickets were confiscated Tuesday and redistributed to other students. The Indianapolis school with an enrollment of more than 4,000 is one of four teams remaining in the tournament.


EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Tim Floyd is coming back to TexasEl Paso. UTEP officials said the former USC coach and one-time assistant to the late Miners coach Don Haskins will be reintroduced at a news conference later Tuesday. The 56-year-old coach, who most recently has been an assistant for the NBA’s New Orleans Hornets, left USC after the 2009 season amid allegations of recruiting violations involving player O.J. Mayo. Floyd has denied any wrongdoing and has said he expects to be cleared in an ongoing NCAA investigation.

Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, left, speaks to Jon Scheyer (30) during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game against Georgia Tech in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament in Greensboro.

DURHAM — From the day he stepped foot on campus, Jon Scheyer was a dependable member of Mike Krzyzewski’s rotation. Then he took over at point guard, and Duke started being Duke again. With Scheyer running the show, the Blue Devils (33-5) claimed two straight Atlantic Coast Conference tournament titles, a league regular-season crown and their first Final Four berth since 2004. Duke plays West Virginia (31-6) on Saturday night in Indianapolis in the national semifinals, but the senior wants to wait until well after that before he even considers the end of his career, saying “I can’t go there.” “It’s exciting, but for us, the goal’s not complete,” he said Tuesday. “That’s the way all of us feel.

Bryant’s return for WVU a mystery MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia point guard Darryl “Truck” Bryant sat out of practice Tuesday and his availability for the Final Four remains a mystery. Bryant broke his right foot at practice on March 23, missed WVU’s last two games in the NCAA tournament, then was fitted for a specially designed shoe that would shift weight away from his fractured fifth metatarsal. WVU basketball spokesman Bryan Messerly says Bryant didn’t practice. Bryant was optimistic the shoe could help him return, but coach Bob Huggins has said he wants to see how Bryant reacted during practice. Huggins says if Bryant doesn’t practice this week, he isn’t going to play Saturday night when the Mountaineers (31-6) face Duke (33-5) in Indianapolis.

NASCAR might have gotten something right O

n my Facebook page I list my favorite saying as, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Well, NASCAR has finally fixed something that was not necessarily broken. They have made some adjustments and tweaked the rules with the spoiler, and hopefully this is the first step in getting racing and the COT back to where we want it to be. Now why they picked Martinsville to debut the spoiler was beyond me, but I guess they had to start somewhere. As it turned out the spoiler didn’t have any effect on the outcome. It still came down to tires, a good pit call, the greenwhite checkered and of course, some luck. The much-anticipated arrival of the new spoiler was a huge success. If you call good side-by-side racing with a lot of fender rubbing and cage rattling good racing then it was just that. But the spoiler had nothing to do with it. It was just what NASCAR wanted when they took the gloves off the drivers and what we the fans have wanted for a long time. Unfortunately, some of us had to work so I am relying on my friends and the media to tell me how good

it really was. Now about that pit call. Why in the world would Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch decide to take four tires that late in the race? They ended up starting back in the pack around 10th or so and immediately Hamlin worked his way through the traffic back to fourth. Meanwhile Busch got caught up a mess and hit the wall, which brought out a caution to help Hamlin. Amazing how teammates help each other without knowing that they are, huh? So on the restart Jeff Gordon and Matt Kenseth decide to remove those gloves and Kenseth bumped Gordon, who slid up Kenseth went around. Later in a television interview Gordon said that if Kenseth was going to knock him out of a win then it was his job to not let him win either. And he didn’t disappoint!

Now according to what I read Kenseth drove too hard into the corner and slid some before Gordon hit him, but the fact remains that Gordon had intentions. So that opened the door for Hamlin, bad knee and all, to get his first victory of the year. Good timing. By taking the chance of four tires and getting some help from his friends, Hamlin turned a good day of racing into a great finish. Of course, none of it would have happened without the new green-white checkered rules and the side-by-side restarts. It is only really important on the short tracks and Monday it really showed why. If they restart using the old rules then Gordon would have driven away into the Virginia hills with a victory. As I noted earlier some of us had to work Monday and didn’t get to watch the race, but I did sneak away during lunch and watch some of it and what I saw really enthused me. I saw the top seven or eight cars racing side by side, bumper to bumper and rubbing fenders. It was refreshing because it was during the middle of the race and not the end. That is all I want to see. I want

Ambidextrous pitcher hurls for Yanks

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — Pat Venditte can see why he’s such a curiosity. It’s not everyday that a pitcher throws with both arms. Venditte showed off his ambidextrous talents for the New York Yankees on Tuesday, giving up one run in 1 1-3 innings during a 9-6 split-squad loss to the Atlanta Braves. “I understand where it’s coming from,” Venditte said. “And it’s my job to go out there and prove that I can pitch.” Making his first appearance for the Yankees, Venditte took over for CC Sabathia with two outs in the fifth inning and tossed four warmup pitches with each hand. Venditte switched back and forth, depending on whether he was facing a righty or lefty, and gave up two hits and a walk. “I think I have to,” he said. “I don’t have overpowering stuff from either side, so I think I really need this.”

land team. So, we’ve just got to be as prepared as possible to win.” Southern Lee won’t play Cleveland (Tenn.) until Saturday in the final game of the tournament. Following the game against Brooks, the Cavaliers will play Chattanooga Central at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday and will battle Chapman (S.C.) on Friday. Burnett says playing in a national tournament could do wonders for both his players and for his program. “First and foremost, we want to get some exposure for the kids,” said Burnett, whose team left

New York Yankees pitcher Pat Venditte throws righthanded and throws left-handed during the sixth inning of a spring training baseball game against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday in Kissimmee, Fla.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes denies hurting a woman who says he threw a glass at her in an Orlando nightclub and claims another woman hit her with the cup, according to a police report released Tuesday. Holmes told an Orlando Police Department officer that the alleged victim, Anshonae Mills, grabbed his wrist, got in his face and called him a racial name after he asked for his seat back in the VIP section of Club Rain earlier this month. Mills, 21, told a different story in a civil lawsuit she filed last week against 26year-old Holmes. In the lawsuit, she claimed that the Super Bowl MVP got in her face and then hit her with the glass after she refused to give up her seat.

The 24-year-old reliever, who uses a six-finger glove, pitched for two teams in Class A last season and went a combined 4-2 with 22 saves and a 1.87 ERA. He is scheduled to begin the season at Class A Tampa. Sabathia said he knew the Yankees had an ambidextrous pitcher in their organization, but did a double take when Venditte took the mound. “I’ve never seen anything like that,” Sabathia said. “I felt like we

for Chattanooga at 6 a.m. today. “The kids haven’t had a chance to show off their skills in something like this before and they’ll have a chance to do so. We’ve built Southern Lee into a program that a lot of people in the area and in the state know about, but we want people to know about it outside of the state. We want to showcase Southern Lee and let other people see what we can do.” Even if Southern Lee doesn’t win, which is Burnett’s ultimate goal, he still thinks that this experience will be able to bring his team closer together as it picks back up with Cape Fear Valley Conference play following the trip. “We need this time to come together as a team

kept changing pitchers before I figured out what was happening.” If he makes the majors, Venditte wouldn’t be the first pitcher to throw as a left-hander and right-hander. Greg Harris, who pitched for Cincinnati, Montreal, San Diego, Texas, Philadelphia, Boston and the Yankees from 1981-95, was a righty throughout his career. He pitched from the left side for two batters in the secondto-last game of his career.

and bond,” said Burnett. “This tournament is a good chance for our guys to come together as one and just enjoy this time to be together. This is a great experience for our guys and I think being together as a team will ultimately help us out in the long run.” The Cavaliers have fallen victim to the injury bug in the past two weeks and enter the tournament at .500 with a 4-4 overall record. Nick Mauldin, the team’s catcher, is out for the entire tournament with a concussion. Senior outfielder A.J. Jackson has a hamstring injury, A.J. Collazo is battling an injured hip and Tyler Appling has a sore elbow. All three are listed as dayto-day but are expected to play in today’s game.

probation and lose some scholarships. It will also vacate a number of wins, including 18 victories by the men’s basketball team in 2003-04; 14 wins by the women’s basketball team in 2006-07; and 40 victories by the volleyball team from 2004-06.

Holmes says he never hurt woman in club

“Some of our outfielders have gone down recently and our catcher went down,” said Burnett. “We’re going to use this time to really get our guys healthy. We’re also going to see what our other guys can do by putting them in positions that they aren’t familiar with while some of our players get healthy.” When healthy, Burnett is confident that the Cavaliers can be dangerous and could possibly make a run in conference and in the postseason. “We’ve got to get healthy,” said Burnett. “We need to gain some consistency, too. Our team feels that if it can get and stay healthy for the rest of the season, look out for Southern Lee.”

Marlins acquire LHP Robertson

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Marlins acquired left-hander Nate Robertson from the Detroit Tigers for left-hander Jay Voss on Tuesday. Robertson started six games and also spent time in the bullpen for the Tigers last season. He finished 2-3 with a 5.44 ERA in 28 appearances. The trade enables Robertson to start with the Marlins and assures left-hander Dontrelle Willis a spot in the Detroit rotation.

LHP Chapman likely headed to minors GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Cuban defector Aroldis Chapman will likely start the season in the Cincinnati Reds’ farm system. General manager Walt Jocketty said Tuesday that the left-hander has adapted well during spring training — he just turned 22 and is learning English — but had his chances of making the team scuttled by a back injury that cost him a week. “The injury set him back to the point where it’s going to be tough for him to be ready to start the season as a (major league) starter,” Jocketty said. “I think we needed the spring to figure out the best route for him. Even without the injury, we may have decided to send him someplace to get established first.”

NCAA orders IUPUI to vacate wins in 14 sports INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA says it has found major infractions involving all 14 sports at IUPUI. The NCAA said Tuesday that IUPUI allowed erroneous eligibility certification for 97 student-athletes from the 2003-04 through 2006-07 years, demonstrating a lack of institutional control and a failure to monitor by the university. A former academic adviser was cited for unethical conduct for his refusal to cooperate with the NCAA during its investigation. The school, which is Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, will receive three years

pointers and an average of 18.2 points this season. Those are the kinds of numbers he always hoped for when he was the starter at shooting guard in 2006-07. He shifted to become the Blue Devils’ sixth man as a sophomore and last year found himself back in the starting lineup. But it wasn’t until Krzyzewski’s tactical shifting of Scheyer to the point and insertion of Elliot Williams at shooting guard that the Blue Devils really took off. The switch stabilized the Blue Devils and put

them on their path back to prominence, with a late-season roll carrying them to the 2009 ACC tournament title, the first of Scheyer’s career. It also brought back a swagger that never waned throughout this season, even as Williams transferred to Memphis. “Just going through those experiences I had as a freshman and sophomore, I feel I’ve just learned a lot (and) I’m more confident on the court,” Scheyer said. In the South Regional final, “Baylor made some runs at us and I was confident the whole way. I never had a doubt we were going to win. So for me, I didn’t have that the whole time as a freshman.

time in an NCAA tournament or a big game. I’ve been through a lot of games. ... Your confidence and just being through it is the biggest thing.” Part of that confidence has come from the incremental steps forward that he and his fellow seniors have taken in the tournament, from a one-and-done as freshmen to last year’s appearance in the round of 16 to the 11th Final Four trip in Krzyzewski’s three decades at Duke. “We’ve gone through a lot and experienced a lot,” forward Kyle Singler said. “With that, you have a closer bond with each other and it’s tougher to break us apart.”

those guys coming off the bench. This Final Four will be won by the final fivesome. “The megastar that maybe you normally seem to find in these Final Fours maybe isn’t there,” Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said. “I think it’s refreshing that you’re looking at four teams that ’team’ is maybe the most important thing.” This Final Four isn’t devoid of star players. There are future pros and potential pros on every team. Duke has the trio of Kyle Singler, Nolan Smith and Jon Scheyer. Durrell Summers and Korie Lucious have turned it up in the tournament for Michigan State. Gordon Hayward has been the man at Butler, Da’Sean Butler Da’ man for West Virginia. All are great players, capable of taking over a game at any time.

They’re just not topof-the-marquee guys, like North Carolina’s Tyler Hansbrough last year, Derrick Rose of Memphis the year before. These Final Four teams are straight off a Red Auerbach fundamentals video, playing defense, setting screens, getting everyone involved. Without a true oneand-done-style star, it’s the only way they were able to reach the final weekend in Indianapolis. “Nobody’s playing perfect — nobody’s even coming close to playing perfect,” Butler coach Brad Stevens said. “But the team that sticks to their plan, that does what they do as well as they can for 40 minutes has a great chance of winning.” Michigan State has what may be the one bona fide star on the four rosters. Problem is, Kalin Lucas ruptured his Achilles’ tendon in a second-round game against Maryland and will spend the week-

end in a walking boot. The Spartans had to scratch and claw their way through injuries and conflicts during the season, and they’ve rallied around each other again since Lucas’ injury. Lucious has made a seamless slide into Lucas’ playmaking role, Summers has turned up his scoring and the rest of the players have picked up the slack any way they can. “They’re a joy to watch as a coach and a bear to prepare for,” Stevens said. The Bulldogs have been the epitome of the team concept. Hayward has been the main cog in Butler’s NCAA run, but it’s the continuity of its team — every player from last year’s roster is back — and a connectedby-a-string cohesiveness at both ends of the floor that got the Bulldogs this far. Butler has followed the mid-major gameplan to perfection and now gets a shot at the big boys, in its hometown, no less.

Wife thinks stay-at-home dad needs to get up and go

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Partnerships and personal matters will raise issues about your future. A creative approach to whatever you face will lead you in directions you never thought possible. You will be able to make decisions that are based on what you want and need instead of what everyone else wants. Treat each opportunity with an open mind. Your numbers are 5, 7, 10, 24, 27, 33, 36 ARIES (March 21-April 19): You cannot let anyone’s negativity or pushy nature slow you down. Let your intentions be known and your determination seen. The more active you are, the more attention you will attract and help you will receive. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If you aren’t happy with the way things are going, pick up some new skills or start sending your resume to companies that will appreciate what you have to offer. Don’t follow the crowd; do what works best for you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Attending an event, taking a trip or surfing the Internet will lead to knowledge and clearer vision concerning your future and what you want to do. Social events and romance are favored and can enhance your relationship or lead to a new one. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get back to the simpler things in life. An opportunity to make a change does look positive but only if you can make it work personally as well as professionally. Consider the effects of any change you make. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are clear about what you want and how you are going to get it. Make your move with strength and courage and you won’t need to explain yourself. Don’t worry about emotional issues going on at home until you finish formulating your plan and make it happen. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.


22): Conversations with people who have experienced what you are trying to do will lead to good advice. Take a look at what you are up against so you will be ready for whatever competition you face. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Gracious action will bring good results. If you handle people with dignity, you will be well received. Your integrity and patience will pay off when it comes to money matters. You will be noticed by someone who can alter your future. SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): Go after your dreams. An interesting turn of events will unfold. Use a little intrigue coupled with your magnetic charm to capture the attention of someone who can orchestrate positive transformations. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): You cannot let anyone meddle in your affairs or stand in the way of your progress. A change at home may be unexpected but, in the end, you will benefit. Look out for your own interests. Don’t let love lead to loss. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): You may want to sit back and smell the roses instead of getting involved in situations that will cause anxiety. Don’t take on more than you can handle for someone else’s benefit. Put yourself first and get some rest. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Do something to enhance your appearance and you will raise your status and the potential to increase your bank account. Take care of emotional issues quickly and a love connection will take a serious turn. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your unpredictable nature will cause some uncertainty when it comes to partnerships, business and the options you have in the future. Expect to be cornered by someone who wants you to make a commitment you aren’t ready to take. Say no and move along.

DEAR ABBY: I have been married to “Roy” for 27 years. For the past 14, he has been a stay-athome dad. He took on the primary job of raising our two kids, now ages 13 and 16, while my career soared. The problem is, we never agreed to this arrangement. Roy left his job at a critical time out of anger and missed out on some major retraining. He kept saying he’d start his own business or get work, but he never did. He also never made up for the loss in skills. Instead, he stayed home, moped about, and now at 56 would have serious difficulty finding a job in his field if he wanted to. (I don’t think he really wants to anymore.) Roy is not happy or fulfilled being at home and does nothing to get going on anything else. I’m so frustrated with him I can no longer stand it. I’m ashamed that I let this happen. For the last few years I have told him repeatedly he has to get busy with a career, go back to school, something — anything — or else. But each deadline I set passes with no change. Should I leave him? — MISERABLE IN MINNESOTA DEAR MISERABLE: Not yet. Your husband may be chronically depressed, which is why he mopes around and has given up on establishing himself independent of you. Instead of giving Roy more ultimatums that are never enforced,

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

encourage him to talk to a psychologist. It isn’t as though he has spent the last 15 years being idle. If your children are living up to their potential, his time has been well spent being a nurturing parent. While I understand your frustration at being the sole breadwinner, recognize that you are not alone in that role these days. Many women are the heads of households, and they are not dumping their husbands en masse. Also, if your situation hasn’t met both your needs it would have been over by now. So before making any hard-andfast decision about leaving, consult an attorney and gain some insight about divorce laws in Minnesota, because regardless of what you decide, you could find yourself supporting Roy for an extended period of time. o

DEAR ABBY: When we were younger, my sister “Kara” and I were sexually abused by our pastor. Kara is now in counseling because of this, and she’s insisting I do the same. I told her I have no need for or desire to get therapy, and now she’s angry with me. What my sister doesn’t know is that I submitted to our pastor willingly. When I became pregnant by him at 16, I lied to my family and told them the child was a result of a one-night stand. I am no longer involved with this man, although we parted on good terms and he continues to support our child. Should I tell my sister the truth so she’ll understand why I am reluctant to seek counseling? — CONFLICTED IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR CONFLICTED: You should not only tell your sister the truth, you should also join her in some of those counseling sessions. While you had sex with your pastor “willingly,” you were underage. What the man did was predatory and statutory rape. If he would do this to you and your sister, what makes you think he isn’t doing it to other young girls right now? By staying silent, you may be enabling him to continue. If you are doing it for the money, there are other ways of getting support for your child. Please rethink this.



Fla. deputy uses Google Earth to make arrest

Man allegedly attacks pastor’s husband in church

PACE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida Panhandle deputy was able to track down and arrest a man on charges of illegally dumping a boat near his home with a surprising tool: satellite pictures provided by Google Earth. Deputy Gregory Barnes used the images after finding an 18-foot boat dumped in an undeveloped subdivision about 15 miles north of Pensacola. Google Earth shows archived satellite and aerial images of communities across the world. Barnes used it to look at the surrounding area and saw a fuzzy image of the vessel at Dwight Everett Foster’s home. Authorities say Foster admitted dumping the boat and his son later removed it. Police say it cost $18 to dispose of the boat at a landfill. Foster faces a $5,000 fine and up to five years in prison.

WILKINSBURG, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania man was charged with simple assault for allegedly attacking a pastor’s husband during a Palm Sunday church service. Police said the man, 31, was jailed on three counts of simple assault stemming from Sunday’s incident at the Christian Church of Wilkinsburg, just east of Pittsburgh. Witnesses told authorities that the man attacked the pastor’s husband during the service and had to be restrained by members of the congregation until police arrived. Police said the victim suffered cuts on his ear and forehead and teeth marks on his hand in the attack.

Man fleeing Ohio police jumps fence — into prison CLEVELAND (AP) — Police say a motorist fleeing officers in Cleveland abandoned his car and jumped a fence — landing in what turned out to be a prison yard. Garfield Heights police say the chase started in that suburb early Monday over a traffic violation and reached speeds of 90 mph. Police say that after a race through several communities, the driver and a passenger bolted from the car and headed for a fence. They apparently did not realize it was on the outside the state women’s prison in Cleveland. They were arrested along with two other passengers who also tried to flee.


Police: Tenn. man rams car with Obama sticker NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A 70-yearold Nashville man was accused of ramming his sport utility vehicle several times into the back of a vehicle that had a Obama/Biden bumper sticker. Harry K. Weisiger, a retiree, made obscene gestures and pointed at the campaign sticker for President Barack Obama and running mate Joe Biden before he smashed into schoolteacher Mark Duren’s car, police said. Weisiger has been charged with reckless endangerment, leaving the scene of the accident and refusing to take a field sobriety test. The incident appears to be among the overheated partisan political atmosphere, including death threats sent to members of Congress and their families who supported health care reform.

Christ’s return signifies God’s victory Q: This year, I decided to read some passages in the Bible that lead up to the Easter story, and I was surprised to see how much Jesus talked during those days about His second coming. But that never happened, did it? Did Jesus really think He’d come back to earth some day, or was He just trying to cheer up His followers? -- Mrs. J.McK. A: No, Jesus wasn’t just trying to cheer up His followers by promising them that He would come back to earth some day (although I’m sure His words did encourage them, in light of Jesus’ impending death). Instead, Jesus was teaching them a very important truth -and one we need to take very seriously. The truth is this: Some day, all evil will be destroyed, and God, not Satan, will be victorious. God alone is sovereign, and even when it looks like Satan is winning (as it did when Jesus was put to death), his “victory” is only temporary. Yes, some day the final battle will be fought between good and evil... between God and Satan... between the powers of light and the powers of darkness. And God will be the victor in that battle, and Christ will come again to establish His Kingdom of perfect justice and love. Some day, the Bible says, the angelic voices will proclaim that “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever” (Revelation 11:15). In a world of turmoil and uncertainty we can have hope -- hope for this world, and hope for eternity -- because of Jesus Christ and what He has done for us through His death and resurrection.

Hassle-free ham

Impress your family this Easter without all the headaches

Lindsay Tipton Anyone Hungry? For more recipes, visit Lindsay Tipton’s blog at

By J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Editor

A new Easter tradition


nless you’re cooking for a crowd, baking up an Easter ham may not be worth the time, effort and expense. If not, you’ll do better to stick with ham steaks, a faster and more economical cut that can have the same flavor. Ham steaks also are easily adapted to the number of people you need to serve. I started by sorting out the sides. I wanted potatoes in the mix, but I knew these would take the longest. A quick saute with some butter and thyme got a bag of new potatoes rolling. I then transferred them to the oven to finish. Which gave me an idea for a fresh approach to doing the green beans. I dumped my


aster signifies many things, but most of them can be summed up into one concept: new beginnings. Of course, the true meaning of Easter is the new beginning as described in the Bible. While we celebrate this new beginning, the holiday also brings with it another welcome start — that of spring. Despite the fact that it was often times still very winterlike at this time of year in Upstate New York, INSIDE we always See our were weekly Dining excited to Guide for get out our local menu springtime options dresses Pages 4-5C as young children. We didn’t go by the weather so much, to us Easter just automatically meant spring. My family celebrates many new beginnings this year — the addition of our son to the family as well as the addition of my sister’s new fiancé. As we travel home with Madden for the first time this Easter, we are reminded of how much our lives have recently changed, and how grateful we are for every change and every new growth. It is probably apparent that family is important to me, as well as tradition. However, in the spirit of growth and new beginnings, I was excited when my mother shared a new recipe with me today — one that we plan to test out this Easter. I love ham and I love asparagus. I love fresh, springtime food and I love the warm comfort food of winter. This dish combines both into one — it carries the traditional Easter ham and asparagus, while still warming your belly on a weekend that while still signifying spring, will prove to be a chilly one in Rochester. If you choose to go with the traditional carved Easter ham, consider preparing this with

Page 7C According to Thomas Sowell, “From 2000 to 2005, the median sales price of American single-family homes rose by one third, from $143,600 to $219,600. In New York the price rose 79 percent, in Los Angeles 110 per cent and in San Diego 127 percent.” Subprime mortgages also rose from $65

s the saying goes….”where would you be without agriculture?” The answer is simple, naked and hungry. In North Carolina we are blessed to have plenty of locally grown fruits, vegetables, meats and nursery and plant products to choose from. These products not only nourINSIDE ish and protect us, they support us economically. The extenAgriculture/agribusiness sion’s weekly Garden Guide comprises over 20 percent of the state’s income plus more agriculture and is the number one news industry in the state at Page 3C $71 billion. However North Carolina is also leading the nation in farm loss. Figures from the U.S. Census of Agriculture show that North Carolina lost more than 600,000 acres of farmland from 2002 to 2007. In 1997 Lee County had 379 farms utilizing 48,248 acres. By 2007 we lost 107 of our farms, and 12,038 acres to development.

HAVE FEWER RULES TO LOSE WEIGHT? One study conducted by researchers from the Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition in Germany and reported in the journal Appetite looked at adherence to popular weight-management programs. What they found is that if you think the rules are too complicated — meaning you find it difficult to remember what the rules are — or if it’s not clear what you’re supposed to eat — you will likely quit the program. If you’re trying to lose weight and are considering a commercial program, make sure the rules are simple and

billion in 1995 to $332 billion by 2003. However, by 2008 the average home price in California dropped an average $100,000 in one year. In San Diego alone the average home price decline was $200,000 from 2006 to 2008. The seed of the housing boom and bust was planted in 1977 when President Carter signed into law the Community Reinvestment Act. With a stroke of his pen the president gave federal officials the authority to tell banks who they could lend to. By 1990, â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;ŚAttorney General Janet Reno threatened legal action against lenders whose racial statistics raised her suspicions.â&#x20AC;? Lending institutions took the hint and loosened traditional income and down payment requirements. By 2000, 20 percent down payments were the minority of loans and subprime lending was the norm. Non-profit institutions like ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) pressured local lending institutions and political leaders into providing loan guarantees and financial support to community action projects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Housing Boom and Bustâ&#x20AC;? is a short (148 pages of text) readable book. I recommend it to those interested in understanding the law of unintended consequences in public policy. It would make excellent background reading for a high school civics class discussion. My only complaint is that in the final chapter Sowell drifts off topic by traveling back in time to the causes and effects of the Great Depression. I wish he had spent more time on the housing boom and bust of 1921-1929, essentially the same manufactured crisis â&#x20AC;&#x201D; lack of affordable housing, with the same results â&#x20AC;&#x201D; massive foreclosures and unemployment in the 1930s. It is indeed curious to note that in both eras the presidents were progressive and focused less on solving massive unemployment and more on reforming the republic toward a more socialist state. Thomas Sowell is the author of 15 books and a syndicated columnist whose writings appear in 150 newspapers. Sowell received his bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in economics (magna cum laude) from Harvard in 1958, his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in economics from Columbia University in 1959, and his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Chicago in 1968.

Garden Guide

Adding organic matter to the home garden


ee County is fairly unique in that the Sandhills region of the state, characterized by deep, sandy soils, meets the Piedmont, characterized by clay soils. Sometimes this conversion happens in our own backyard! I often hear complaints about how hard the clay is to work with and how the sandy soils wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold water. Many people tell me that there is no topsoil. I have yet to hear a homeowner tell me how great their soil is (farmers will!). Lee County does have topsoil. There are areas that have less topsoil due to erosion or little to none in new housing developments, where developers have stripped away the topsoil prior to building. Though we have topsoil, many of our soils are not black or brown in color, which Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found people associate with topsoil. Soil is formed from organic materials and minerals derived from weathering rock. The mineral constituents of soil are broken down into three main particle sizes: sand, silt and clay. Sand is the largest particle size (you can see a grain of sand with your naked eye) and clay is the smallest (have you ever been able to distinguish a particle of clay?). The proportions of these three particles make up the soil texture. Why is this important? The texture and the structure of the soil determines how the soil will â&#x20AC;&#x153;behave.â&#x20AC;? Will the soil hold nutrients, will it drain freely, etc.? So how do you correct and improve a soil? Regardless of whether you have a more clay soil or a more sandy soil, the answer is to add organic matter. Organic matter is residue that comes from a once-living or living organism and is often in a stage of decomposition. Organic matter (OM) helps soil particles bind into aggregates, which improves nutrient holding capacity. In addition, OM improves water infiltration in clay soils and improves water retention in sandy soils. OM also adds nutrients to the soil. In the spring and fall, OM should be added in a 2-3 inch layer and incorporated into the soil. Be careful when choosing your source of OM, since normal applications can increase nutrients and soluble salts to a level toxic to plants. Food compost and animal manure can be very high in soluble salts. Sources of OM in-

clude animal manure, compost, and cover crops or green manure. When using animal manure be very careful about using fresh manure, which can contain human pathogens such as E. coli, Listeria and Salmonella. If possible choose aged or composted manure instead. If you do use fresh manure, apply it no less than 120 days (4 months) prior to the harvest of the crop. The nutrient content of manure varies based on the species of animal, the bedding, the storage of the material and the age, as well as other factors. A few cautions when using animal manure: 1. fresh manure or poorly composted manure may contain viable weed seeds, 2. the manure may contain residual herbicides that can be dangerous to garden plants (ask your supplier what herbicides have been used on his/her pasture and hay), and 3. over application of manure may over fertilize plants and leach nitrates into the water supply. Nitrates can have serious health effects on infants, pregnant women and other susceptible humans, as well as animals. Compost is decomposed organic matter and another good source of OM. The term compost is not regulated, so be on the lookout for

poor quality products. Compost that is hot, smells like ammonia or the materials are readily identifiable has not gone through the complete compost process. Using cover crops when your garden is not in production can also add OM back to the soil without increasing soluble salt levels. A cover crop is a grass and/or legume â&#x20AC;&#x153;matâ&#x20AC;? established in September or October to prevent soil erosion and weed establishment. A legume is a plant in the bean family such as crimson clover, hairy vetch or Austrian winter peas. Legumes are unique in that bacteria that associate with the plant can convert atmospheric nitrogen into a plant-friendly nutrient (think free fertilizer!). Grasses that can be used for cover crops include annual ryegrass, rye and wheat. You can establish cover crops (with different plant species) in the summer; however, most people are using their gardens during this time. Cover crops must be tilled into the soil at least one month prior to planting the garden. This prevents the cover crop from seeding and starts the decomposition process in the soil. Working with the soil in Lee County can be challenging. By using organic matter, you can improve your soil for plant growth. For more information on organic matter, call our Center at 775-5624.

Currently 87 percent of Lee County is still considered farm or forestland. Income generated yearly in Lee County by production agriculture and government payments for agriculture programs is in excess of $40 million. Unplanned development or shortsighted conversion of our working lands can have a negative impact on our county budget, erode our natural resources and threaten our agriculture heritage. As many of you, our farmers are struggling with the recent recession. Competition among national and international growers, more federal and state mandates, growing populations, urban encroachment, rising cost of farming, soaring labor cost and pressures to sell to developers are dayto-day challenges our farmers and forestland owners face. Ultimately if the foundation of our American way of life fades away, we all lose by the loss of local food markets, jobs and higher cost for food and fiber products. Even our ecosystem is threatened by the loss of farms, which protect our drinking water by maintaining wetlands and stream buffers. In September 2008, our county commissioners saw the need to help protect and preserve our agricultural heritage, farm and forestry lands by adopting a Voluntary Agriculture District Ordinance for Lee County. Soon after, in February of 2009, the Broadway Board of Commissioners entered into an agreement with the County of Lee to support the Ordinance within the town limits. There are now 75 counties and four municipalities in North Carolina with a Voluntary Agriculture District Ordinance in place. A Voluntary Agricultural District (VAD) Ordinance is designed to encourage the preservation and protection of family farms, to increase the visibility of agricultural, forestry

President of Lee County Area Farmers Wayne Watson (left) and his wife, Judy, who is a member of the Agriculture Advisory Board, look over the VAD sign that will be placed in the seven Lee County townships once Voluntary Agriculture Districts are established. Landowners enrolling in the program will also receive a smaller sign for posting on their property. Applications to enroll in the program can be picked up from North Carolina Cooperative Extension in Lee County or from the Lee Soil and Water District. Applications are also available online at and horticultural operations and to protect and to promote these lands uses. The ordinance seeks to preserve open space and increases the visibility of agricultural operations so that landowners are aware of the potential for dust, noise and smells associated with the business agriculture. The benefits from our farmland: clean water and air, plant and animal habitat, fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and dairy products, horticultural products, and scenic rural vistas certainly add to the quality of life in Lee County. The Lee County tax office reports that over 67,105 acres are currently enrolled in the presentuse tax program. These lands are either involved in agriculture, forestry or horticulture operations and are eligible to enroll in the Lee County VAD program. By enrolling in the program, the landowner agrees to avoid undesired nonfarm development for a period of 10 years. An enrollment fee of $50 will cover the filing fee for the conservation agreement and the cost of one sign that can be posted on the landownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property. I encourage those who qualify to enroll in our VAD program and demonstrate your pride and commitment to agriculture. Doing so is recognition of your contribution

to the exceptional quality of life in Lee County. Applications can be obtained from North Carolina Cooperative Extension in Lee County or from the Lee Soil and Water District. Both agencies are located in the McSwain Extension Education and Agriculture Center, 2420 Tramway Road in Sanford. We have made the application process simple and our staffs are ready to assist you with the paperwork. If you have questions about the program, call Cooperative Extension at 775-5624 or Soil and Water at 776-2633.

prepped green beans into the now-empty pan, tossed them with butter, garlic, salt and pepper, then covered the pan and set it aside. It was just enough to get them barely tender by serving time. For the ham steaks, it isn’t so much cooking as reheating and flavoring. So I started with a saute of onion, then added the steaks and let them brown just a bit on both sides. For the glazing effect, toward the end of cooking I added a blend of maple syrup and hot sauce, then let it bubble and thicken. And that’s it. A complete ham dinner without the hassle.


Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 6 tablespoons butter, divided 28-ounce package new potatoes, halved 1/2 teaspoon thyme 1 teaspoon salt, divided 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika 12 ounces green beans, ends trimmed 2 large yellow onions, thinly sliced 1 pound ham steaks 1/4 cup maple syrup 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce Heat the oven to 400 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and spritz it with cooking spray. In a large skillet over medium-high, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the potatoes, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper. Toss well and saute for 10 minutes. Transfer the potatoes to the prepared baking sheet, then roast for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, return the skillet to the burner over high heat. Add another 2 tablespoons of butter. When the butter is melted, add the garlic and paprika. Stir for 30 seconds, then add the green beans. Toss well, saute for 3 minutes, then cover, remove from the heat and set aside. In a large saute pan over medium-high, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the onions and saute until tender, about 4 minutes. Add the ham steaks and brown for 3 to 4 minutes per side. In a small bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, hot sauce and soy sauce. Add this mixture to the pan, moving the steaks around to coat. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the liquid is thickened.

A fresh take on lamb for spring and Easter


Spring is all about fresh starts, so consider trying a fresh approach to the traditional lamb served at Easter. This Japanese-influenced recipe for rack of lamb from Marcus Samuelsson’s cookbook, “New American Table,” coats the lamb in a miso-butter blend, then packs crunchy panko breadcrumbs around the outside. The best part is that it’s fast and easy to prepare, and can be done ahead and reheated. Miso can be found alongside other refrigerated Asian ingredients, usually in the grocer’s produce section.


MISO-RUBBED RACK OF LAMB Start to finish: 1 hour Servings: 4 2 tablespoons dark miso 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature 1 tablespoon mild chili powder 1 large egg yolk 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 frenched racks of lamb (1 1/2 pounds each) Salt and ground black pepper 1/4 cup panko (Japanese-style) breadcrumbs Heat the oven to 400 F. In a small bowl, combine the miso, butter, chili powder, egg yolk and sage. Set aside. In a large saute pan, heat the oil. Season the lamb with salt and pepper, then add it to the pan and sear until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Let the lamb cool slightly, then smear the miso-butter mixture over both sides. Firmly press the panko into the miso-butter mixture on the rounded side of each rack. Place the racks, rounded fat sides up, in a roasting pan. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted at the center of the rack reads 125 F, about 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer the lamb to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. (Recipe from Marcus Samuelsson’s “New American Table,” Wiley, 2009) — By The Associated Press

Serve the ham steaks, topped with the onions, with sides of roasted potatoes and green beans.

1 tablespoon olive oil 1 ¾ lb asparagus 8 oz spaghetti 4 cups cubed cooked ham In a large saucepan, melt butter. Add flour and whisk until golden. Slowly add half and half, milk and broth. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently. Stir in cheeses, lemon juice, green onion and mustard. Remove from heat, add mayonnaise. Cut asparagus into 1 ½ inch spears. In a skillet, heat olive oil and cook asparagus over medium high heat until crisptender. Boil spaghetti according to directions on box. In a well greased 9x13 baking dish, layer the asparagus, ham, spaghetti, and cream sauce. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.

Farmers tout lentils, other legumes Associated Press Writer

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Lentils are a hot topic among gourmets these days, with recipes for them popping up in most major food magazines. Lentil and other legume farmers hope to capitalize on this interest and convince consumers and food producers to use them in breads and cookies as well as the more traditional soups and stews. To do this, they’ve formed a new marketing venture aimed at promoting the health and other benefits of lentils, dry peas, garbanzo beans and other so-called “pulse” crops. “They’re barking up the right tree,” said Brad Barnes, associate dean of culinary education at The Culinary Institute of America. Growing interest in Indian and other international cuisines, along with greater awareness of intolerance to gluten, a protein found in many grains, have fostered an interest in lentils and legumes, Barnes and others said. A general push toward eating healthier also has made high-fiber, high-protein, low-fat legumes more appealing, said Tina Ujlaki, executive food editor at Food and Wine magazine. “I think a lot of people are trying to move meat to the side of the plate rather than the center of the plate,” Ujlaki said. “More people are trying legumes, vegetables. Also, people are trying to cut costs, and these ingredients are not that expensive. “There’s big bank for your buck moneywise and healthwise.” The interest comes at a good time for farmers, who have seen production of lentils and dry peas rebound after drought ravaged the crop in 2008 in the top two producing states of North Dakota and Montana. The U.S. had record crops last year, producing 1.7 billion pounds of dry peas and 590 million pounds of lentils, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Right now, most of the market for the two crops is overseas, with twothirds or more of U.S.grown peas and lentils


Try adding lentils to your diet with this lentil salad with peppers and anchovies which comes from Jose Pizarros’s new cookbook “Seasonal Spanish Food.” Start to finish: 15 minutes Servings: 6 Two 15-ounce can cooked lentils, rinsed 6 ounces piquillo or roasted red peppers, cut into thin strips 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced 2 tablespoons salted capers, rinsed (brine-packed capers also can be used) 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons cabernet red wine vinegar Salt and ground black pepper, to taste Handful of mixed fresh herbs, such as mint, chervil and flat-leaf parsley, chopped 18 oil-packed anchovy fillets In a medium bowl, mix the lentils, peppers, onion and capers. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and vinegar. Pour the dressing over the lentil mixture, tossing gently. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Mix in the fresh herbs, then divide between serving plates. Top with anchovies.

being exported, said Eric Bartsch, general manager of Bismarck-based United Pulse Trading Inc. Much of the demand has been in drought-ridden areas of India and other parts of South Asia as well as Turkey. “Demand in the U.S. is still not huge, but it is growing,” he said. “We see it as definitely becoming a major part of our markets in the future.” Domestic demand has increased with the growth of ethnic minorities, but Barnes said more people of all races have become interested in Indian and other foreign foods. The Internet has made it easier to

research international foods and find ingredients. “With the information pipeline out there, it’s certainly easier for someone interested in food to discover Morocco,” he offered as an example. “Global flavors and perspective in food and the culinary arts are growing every day,” he added. Farmers hoping to capitalize on this interest have formed the American Pulse Association, a joint venture of the USA Dry Pea and Lentil Council and the US Dry Bean Council. Chief executive Tim McGreevy said he expects new research and other efforts

“will have a huge impact on domestic consumption here in the next five years.” One priority for his group is encouraging research to support ideas about legumes’ health benefits. Another focus is getting the crops used more often in mainstream food manufacturing. “We’re heavily weighted toward traditional uses of these products, which is soups and stews,” McGreevy said. “There hasn’t been extensive research done on how these pulse flours can be worked into breads, tortillas ... muffins, cookies.” Industry leaders are holding a planning session this week, in Beltsville, Md., with about 50 science and industry experts. After they come up with specific plans on how to proceed they will seek funding from agencies such as the Agriculture Department and the National Institutes of Health, McGreevy said. Ujlaki and Barnes said products made with legume flour would probably be attractive to people who are allergic to gluten or have celiac disease, a digestive disorder triggered by proteins found in wheat, barley and rye. “If you go to a health food store, you’ll see half the cookie aisle is glutenfree, half the crackers are gluten-free,” Ujlaki said. The final part of the American Pulse Association’s plan is to promote legumes’ environmental benefits. Unlike corn and other crops that require a lot of expensive fertilizer, legumes put nitrogen back into the soil. Beau Anderson, who farms in northwest North Dakota and teaches farm management at a Williston college, said they fit in well in crop rotation plans farmers use to protect soil and stem off plant diseases. They also require less work with emissions-spouting farm equipment, McGreevy said. “The United States and the world are crying out for improvements to our health and to our environment,” said Cindy Brown, vice chairwoman of the American Pulse Association. “Pulse crops offer tangible solutions to these problems.”


Taking the revolution to the president NEW YORK (AP) — If Jamie Oliver can’t persuade the school lunch ladies of Huntington, W.Va., that fresh food is better than processed, maybe he’ll have better luck with President Barack Obama. While Oliver’s effort to overhaul the diet of one West Virginia community unfolds on network television, the British celebrity chef also will be stumping for national reform with an online petition calling for better food in the country’s schools. Watching “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” should

make people angry about the state of the American food system, Oliver said in an interview Thursday. And he hopes the ABC reality series moves people to channel that anger for change. “If you can create an environment in which the public expects more, all the cogs in life as we know it fall into place,” he said. Once the series (which premiers with a 2-hour episode Friday) ends its run on April 23, Oliver plans to take the petition to the White House, where first lady Michelle Obama has

made reducing childhood obesity a priority. Despite the sometimes chilly reception he got from Huntington locals in early episodes of the series, Oliver said he is convinced this is the right time for a food revolution in the United States. “I’m starting to see a difference now in America that I’ve never seen as a foreigner in 12 years,” he said, noting a confluence of pressures for reform from the White House, Congress, industry, health and parent groups. By Thursday afternoon,

about 50,000 people had signed on to Oliver’s petition, which was launched in early March. Oliver’s series airs as Congress considers legislation to toughen the rules that regulate the nation’s school lunches. The measure would create new standards for all foods in schools, including vending machine items. The series is based on a similar program Oliver did in England that did result in reform of school food. The American version is set in a town the network calls the nation’s unhealthiest city.

Tips, treatments for snoring seniors DEAR SAVVY SENIOR: My 60-year-old husband has become a terrible snorer, especially over the past few years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gotten to the point I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand to sleep in the same room as him anymore. What can help us? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; SLEEPLESS SANDY DEAR SANDY: Most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much they can do to fix their snoring problems, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not true anymore. Today, there are number of viable tips and treatments that can make a big difference for snorers and their suffering spouses. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you should know. Snoring is very common. If fact, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimated that nearly half of all adults in the U.S. snore at least occasionally, and 25 percent snore habitually. But men are the ones who tend to be loud problem snorers, as well as people who are overweight. And snoring often gets worse with age.

Self-help remedies While thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no sure-fire cure for snoring, there are a variety of things your husband can try to help reduce or eliminate the problem, including: Slim down: If heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overweight, a 10 percent loss of body weight can help open up his airway and reduce snoring. Stop smoking: If your

husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a smoker, quitting will help. Smoking causes inflammation in the upper airways that can make snoring worse. Avoid alcohol and sedatives: Sleeping pills, painkillers, tranquilizers and alcoholic beverages all relax the muscles in the throat which makes snoring more likely. He should avoid all of these three to four hours before bed time. Change sleeping positions: Snoring is more common when you sleep on your back. To prevent this, sew a tennis ball in the back of a T-shirt or his pajama top. This will make sleeping on his back uncomfortable and teach him to sleep in a more breathing friendly side position. Or, buy a snoring pillow thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designed to promote side sleeping. The Sona Pillow

( and Sleepright Side Pillow ( are two popular brands. Tilt the bed: Raising the head of the bed by four inches can also help reduce snoring by helping him breath easier. He can do this by placing some bricks or boards under the headboard legs, or purchase some inexpensive bed raisers. Or insert a foam wedge under the head of the mattress. Clear nasal passages: If nasal congestion is causing your husband to snore, nasal strips such as Breathe Right may help, or if allergies are the cause, try steroid or saline nasal sprays. Antihistamines can help with allergies, but can worsen snoring. Also consider purchasing a humidifier for the bedroom. This can help to reduce congestion and moisturize the throat.

When to see a doctor Loud snoring can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea (see SleepApnea. org), a serious condition in which the snorer stops breathing many times a night. Left untreated, it can cause high blood pressure and can sharply increase the risk for stroke and heart attack. If your husband is frequently sleepy during the day, stops breathing during sleep, or

snorts awake, gasping for breath, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to see an otolaryngologist or a sleep specialist who may recommend an overnight study at a sleep center ( And even if he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have these symptoms, these types of doctors can help ease his snoring if the other remedies have failed. A common treatment for sleep apnea and severe snoring is a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) device. This involves sleeping with a snorkel-like mask thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hooked up to a machine that gently blows air up your nose to keep the passages open. Other treatment options include an oral appliance that fits into the mouth over the teeth like a removable mouth guard or retainer. And the new Provent therapy (, which are small nasal devices that attach over the nostrils to improve airflow and breathing. If these donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, surgery is an option, too. There are several procedures that are offered today that can help including the new minimally invasive pillar palatal implant that has a 75 percent success rate.

a meal or a snack. Brian Wansink, from the Food and Brand Lab at Cornell University, found that having a meal consists of eating with your family for 30 minutes, sitting down and using ceramic plates and cloth napkins. Additionally, large portions of expensive, healthy, prepared foods were most strongly associated with having a meal. The perception of snacking is increased when using paper plates and napkins, eating alone, standing and taking 10 minutes or less to consume the food. People also perceive snacks as low-cost, low-quality foods that come in small quantities and are packaged versus prepared. So what does all this mean? When eating your â&#x20AC;&#x153;snacks,â&#x20AC;? try to make them more formal. Use real plates, sit down and make your eating more of an experience. If you think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having a mini-meal youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be more likely to feel satisfied and eat less.

VARY YOUR HEALTHY FOODS In another study, Brunstrom served participants either high-calorie or low-calorie spaghetti Bolognese for a period of five days and observed their reactions. What he found was that when people have a lower-calorie, familiar food, they like it at first, but over time they tend to like it less and less. This means that when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re choosing your lower-calorie healthy foods, you might want to change them up. Have a variety of healthy choices available in your home and when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re eating out. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;LL HAVE WHAT SHEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S HAVING: BODY TYPE INFLUENCES WHAT YOU EAT Research reported in the Journal of Consumer Research looked at how the body types of those around consumers influence their food consumption. The researchers found that a consumer tends to choose larger portions when someone else does so first. But if that other person is obese, the consumer will choose a smaller portion than if he or she were thin. Therefore, when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dining with a thin friend, be extra-conscious of how much you eat. HEALTHY OPTIONS MAY LEAD TO HIGHER CALORIES If you have lots of healthy choices among unhealthy choices youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more likely to indulge in the unhealthy, says research reported in the Journal of Consumer

EAT TOO QUICKLY? YOUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;RE PROBABLY EATING TOO MUCH Most of you have heard that if you eat too fast youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re eating too much. But this is the first time research shows why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening. According to a new study reported in The Endocrine Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, eating a meal quickly curtails the release of hormones in the gut that induce feelings of fullness. And the decreased release of these hormones can often lead to overeating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the study, subjects consumed the same test meal, 300 milliliters of ice cream, at different rates. Researchers took blood samples for the measurement of glucose, insulin, plasma lipids and gut hormones before the meal and at 30minute intervals after the beginning of eating, until the end of the session, 210 minutes later. Researchers found that subjects who took the full 30 minutes to finish the ice cream had higher concentrations of peptide YY (PYY) and glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) and also tended to have a higher fullness rating.â&#x20AC;?

Researchers speculate that simply having healthier options available may be allowing people to feel that they are eating healthier â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and inadvertently giving them a license to overindulge.
