inmates appear before magistrates and judges for initial court appearances without leaving the jail, said Lt. David Prevatte of the Sheriff’s Office. Currently, suspects must physically go before a judge or magistrate, requiring intensified security and transportation worries. But a split-screen video hookup will do that from a jail cell under lock and key.

“I’m very excited about this,” said Lee County Sheriff Tracy Carter. “This is going to greatly enhance the security of the jail.” Officer Chris Amundson of Lee County Jail showed off the video monitor in a courtroom and jail cell Thursday, explaining the device will also

Police believe there’s more to incident than random robbery By BILLY BALL


SANFORD — Police said they are puzzled by an area man who said he was shot several times but refused to cooperate with authorities. The man, 40-year-old Ramese McKoy of Cameron, came to the Central Carolina Hospital emergency room Wednesday evening with five gunshot wounds, two in the abdomen, two in the left leg and one in the left ankle with an unknown caliber gun, a Sanford Police Department report said Thursday. McKoy said he was shot when a man attempted to rob him in the Carbonton Road parking lot of Kiwanis Park. Other than providing that information, McKoy has largely rebuffed investigators’ inquiries, said Capt. David Smith of the Sanford Police Department. Smith said McKoy refused to give a description of the suspect and told investigators that he would not pursue charges against his assailant. “He also told investigators not to waste their time because he had nothing to say,” Smith said.

In 1860, the first Italian Parliament met at Turin. In 1865, Confederate President Jefferson Davis and most of his Cabinet fled the Confederate capital of Richmond, Va., because of advancing Union forces. In 1932, aviator Charles A. Lindbergh and John F. Condon went to a cemetery in The Bronx, N.Y., where Condon turned over $50,000 to a man in exchange for Lindbergh’s kidnapped son. (The child, who was not returned, was found dead the following month.) In 1956, the soap operas “As the World Turns” and “The Edge of Night” premiered on CBS television. In 1974, French President Georges Pompidou died in Paris. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter signed into law a windfall profits tax on the oil industry. (The tax was repealed in 1988.)

SanLee Park expanded to 177 acres

SANFORD — At its March 1 meeting, the Lee County Board of Commissioners announced the purchase of 17 acres of property adjacent to San-Lee Park. This brings the total acreage of the park to 177 acres. San-Lee Park is a nature preserve facility that offers outdoor education and recreational activities. The purchase consists of two tracts of land: one is 9.98 acres and the other is 7.02 acres. The combined total purchase price for both properties was $85,000. The new land gives the park additional buffering from the U.S. 421 bypass and protects the water shed that feeds the two ponds on the site. The purchase of the land comes at a time when the county will be spending $1.2 million on improvements to the San-Lee dam. Both the purchase of the land and the restoration of the dam will protect this natural space in the future. Construction at the dam has already begun and should be completed by Sept. 1. Recreational activities will continue at the park during construction, but some areas may not be accessible during this period. For more information, call 776-6221. — from staff reports

SANFORD —A Sanford man is in jail following an area drug bust Wednesday afternoon, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office reported. Law enforcement agents arrested Victor Dejuses Duprey, 25, of 456 Harbor Trace in Sanford on a number of counts, including trafficking cocaine and crystal methamphetamines, a Sheriff’s Office press release said.

Both trafficking charges are felonies. The arrest was made Dejuses under a joint operation by the Sheriff’s Office and the Sanford Police Department’s Tactical Narcotics Team and Selective Enforcement Unit, said Capt. John Holly of the Sheriff’s Office. Agents seized about

$11,600 worth of drugs, or 28 grams of cocaine and 30 grams of crystal methamphetamines, from Duprey. Holly said Duprey was under investigation and that law enforcement had been tipped off that he would be in the parking lot of a Sanford business on South Horner Boulevard around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. “We set up surveillance and took him down when he got there,� Holly said.

Duprey is charged with maintaining a vehicle to store drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, and trafficking cocaine and methamphetamines. Holly said the amount of drugs confiscated from Duprey merited a stiffer trafficking charge than simple possession. If convicted, Duprey faces a mandatory prison sentence of at least three years, he said. Duprey was being held in Lee County Jail under a $400,000 secured bond.

A hero’s return, for the moment RALEIGH (MCT) — U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge, who could face a perilous re-election effort this fall, received a raucous welcome home to his district Wednesday night, from Democrats who praised him for his courage in voting to help pass the new health care law. “Thank you, Bob; thank you, Bob,� about 120 people chanted at a rally as Etheridge entered the John P. Greene Community Center in Raleigh. Etheridge acknowledged that he had angered some of his constituents, but he said he hopes that as the benefits of the new health care law became better known -- from making insurance available to people with pre-existing medical conditions to ending the so-called doughnut hole for Medicare recipients -- more people could come around to his way of thinking. “It was a monumental achievement,� Etheridge said of the bill, compar-

ing it to the passage of Social Security in the 1930s and Medicare in 1965. “I voted for it because the working people, the families of North Carolina really needed solutions, not more fears,� Etheridge said. “Now the truth will come out in the coming weeks and months.

We could not continue to allow the old system to kill jobs and literally bankrupt families.� Etheridge’s vote is a difficult one in the 2nd District, which voted for Republican George W. Bush in 2004 and for Democrat Barack Obama in 2008. A poll conducted by Public Policy Polling, a

Democratic-leaning firm in Raleigh, found that 53 percent of voters in the district opposed the health care plan, while 37 percent supported it. The survey of 601 voters was taken March 13-14 and had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. — Raleigh News & Observer

We have reason to be optimistic economically


he news has been so bad for so long that local officials and business types who crowded into Chef Paul’s Wednesday to hear Michael Walden’s annual Lee County Committee of 100-sponsored economic outlook were much hungrier for a morsel of optimism than they were Paul Duggan’s lunchtime feast. Walden, the N.C. State professor and economist, provided a glimmer of hope for those of us who have grown weary of wariness about the economy. The good news, according to Walden: the “severe recession” of the last two-plus years is showing some signs of waning.

The worst economic conditions since the Great Depression — brought about by a residential housing valuation crisis almost no one saw coming — are behind us, based on the economic tea leaves Walden reads. In the U.S., GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is rising, factory orders and production are up and employers are giving workers still on the payrolls more hours, plus hiring more temporary labor to help meet demand for output. In North Carolina, where economic cycles have tended to be more volatile, surveys show two or three months’ worth of job gains (after job losses every month for nearly two years).

That news was tempered, though, with the reality the any recovery will be slow. Getting “back to where we were” — including recovering the 8.5 million “lost” jobs across the nation and seeing housing prices rebound from their average drop of 30 percent — is a distant visage. North Carolina’s (and Lee County’s) high unemployment rates may recover more quickly than in some parts of the country, but they could still be higher than the traditional “full” unemployment rate of 5 percent for many years to come. Walden touched on a number of other economic issues,

but what he and other economists would find hard to gauge will be impact on the economy of the nation’s growing debt. The stock market doesn’t seem to be that bothered by the prospect. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 4.1 percent during the first quarter of this year, its fourth straight quarterly gain and the best first-quarter performance in more than a decade; the Dow is now pushing the 11,000 threshold, and if today’s March jobs report is as good as Walden thinks it will be, the markets (closed today for Good Friday) will likely push it higher. But payday is coming for our

federal deficit. The United States rakes in about $1 trillion a year in income taxes and other fees, but with nearly $12 trillion in debt there’s coming a day where the government won’t have enough revenue to support the interest payments on the debt. There’s always been a “buffer” between the level of federal debt and our borrowing capacity, but that margin is growing slimmer. Perhaps one recovery will lead to the start of another. Neither Walden nor anyone else can say for sure if that will happen, but given that we’ve persevered through a worse fiscal crisis, we have much to be optimistic about.

Citizen Hollywood


mong a good portion of the national political punditry, Hollywood is often portrayed as a bunch of idealistic, liberal do-gooders. Apparently none of those commentators have paid much attention to how Hollywood has been manipulating state governments to rob from the tax coffers that go to pay for things like schools and health care for the poor. ... So, less than a year removed from convincing North Carolina legislators to increase the ante on its tax incentives to lure film productions, Hollywood wants more. Gov. Beverly Perdue recently took a brief trip to the land of make-believe only to learn that Hollywood executives want the state to drop caps on the amount of incentives that can be earned by film production companies working in the state. Only by doing so will the state see an increase in the movie-making business, Perdue said. Last year, legislators increased those incentives by allowing film production companies to receive a tax credit worth up to 25 percent of their expenses. This is a tax credit, not a deduction, meaning the expenses comes off their final tax bill. Before the change, when the tax credit stood at 15 percent of expenses, the state Department of Commerce valued the credit at $7.5 million on a $50 million film production. The incentives law caps the credit at $7.5 million and limits per-person wages considered in the calculation at $1 million. Those limits need to go, Perdue was told, if North Carolina doesn’t want to get beaten out by Georgia and other states that offer more lucrative incentives. State officials here and elsewhere believe the film business provides enough of a boost to the economy to make the incentives worthwhile. One study, conducted by the Arrowhead Center at New Mexico State University, suggested otherwise. It found that incentives offered in New Mexico produced just 14 cents in tax revenue for every dollar offered by the state. That being the case, perhaps Hollywood ought to go back to doing what it does best, filmmaking. Here’s a suggestion for a new script: An aging, well-known filmmaker, his mantle lined with Academy Awards, sits up in his bed in his posh Hollywood Hills home, about to die. As he drops a crystal globe, he utters a final word. “Blackmail.” A young reporter from the Los Angeles Times hears the story and does his best to try to track down who could have been blackmailing this icon of the film industry. His investigation generates headlines and the speculation even ruins careers. In the end, though, he can’t unravel the mystery. In the movie’s final scenes, a teaching assistant in North Carolina is handed a pink slip, a doctor in Georgia tells a poor man that he no longer takes Medicaid patients.

OUM ROL, South Sudan — For those used to seeing the faces of slaves in Civil War-era tintypes — staring at the camera in posed, formal judgment — it is a shock to see the face of slavery in a shy, adolescent boy.

I remember my first meeting with Bob Blue with great clarity. He was eight years old. And I recognized immediately that he was a remarkable human being. He had dancing, bright eyes, filled with the wonder of contemplated life adventures, and he exhibited pure joy when talking about his plans for the future. He had, already at that young age, fashioned a cartoon strip. His characters became alive as he described them, and I learned he wanted to develop them into a fullblown theatrical production. Even in his earliest years, before entering school, he “made up” plays and “produced” them in the basement of his family home. Naturally, he played all the parts, changing voice and posture for each character. Fortunate friends and neighbors were invited to be the audience. They loved the productions and marveled at his talent. In 1968 he auditioned for and won the part of Louis Leonowens in Sanford Central High’s The King and I. Appearing in a proper gray Eton suit and speaking with an impeccable upper class English accent, he was a wonder. He stayed “in character” every moment he was on stage. The play ran for three nights to packed “houses.” He loved it all so much that at the conclusion of the play he wept copiously. By his senior year in school he had become a major part of every musical presented by Sanford Central High School. But the best was yet to come. Fiddler on the Roof was the choice for 1974. And Bobby was Tevye. He became the beloved Russian milkman from the skin up, even donning under his outer wear the vest worn by pious Jews. Attached to the four corners of the vest were the requisite four sets of corner threads. His research of the character was so meticulous that each corner thread had 13 twists and then a double knot, ensuring the threads would not come undone. His was the finest Tevye I have ever seen, including two Broadway productions! There are others who will echo that statement unequivocally. After graduation Bob went on to college, earning degrees in theatre and education. He appeared in many plays and became a director of note. He was instrumental in organizing an amateur theatrical troupe in Lee County (The Center Stage Production Company). He gave unstintingly of his talents both to the community and to hundreds of young people during his time as drama teacher at both the high school and college levels. Even though a voracious reader, he battled dyslexia all his life. Offsetting this was a prodigious memory. He could quote books, plays (even Shakespearean plays, his great love) delivering the lines of all the characters. He was gifted with a wonderful mind and a talent that truly was awesome. We will remember his booming laughter, his generosity, and his loving and caring heart. He will not be forgotten, and he will continue to be loved by many, many friends. I think we will not see his like again in our lifetime. “Good-night, sweet prince; And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.” JO ANN C. BOWMAN Sanford

were announced as the first-round winners; Tennessee will receive $500 million and Delaware will get $100 million to overhaul their education programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were extremely disappointed,â&#x20AC;? said Vickie Wilkins, president of the Lee Association of Educators, a chapter of the North Carolina Association of Educators. The economic stimulus package set aside $4.35 billion for Race to the Top, so the remaining money will be awarded during the second round. States earn points for various improvements, like adopting higher standards and methods to recruit and retain quality teachers. Applications are due June 1.

books and office chairs are just some of the supplies that can be found at the resource room, which is run by Communities in Schools of Lee County. After conducting a survey last year, CIS Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Program Director Laura Biediger found that on average, a Lee County Schools teacher spends $300 of his or her own money each year on school supplies. The resource room provides those supplies to teachers at no charge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;School supplies are so expensive these days,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really exciting opportunity for CIS to fill in that gap.â&#x20AC;? Teacher Bebe Mitchell and her Parenting and Child Development class helped sort supplies Thursday afternoon. She visits the resource room

Race to the Top aims to reward states that are leading the way in comprehensive, statewide education reform across four key areas: n Adopting standards and assessments that prepare students to succeed in college and the workplace n Building data systems that measure student growth and success and inform teachers and principals how to improve instruction n Recruiting, developing, rewarding and retaining effective teachers and principals, especially where they are needed most n Turning around their lowest-performing schools.

believe that affected the outcome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think in the back of my mind Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering if they wanted to start very small,â&#x20AC;? and set the standard with Tennessee and Delaware, he said. Wilkins said the North Carolina State Board of Education met Thursday and today and likely will discuss the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would hope that we named in June,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to give up on it. I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d give up this easily.â&#x20AC;? Moss said he had not heard officially if the state will resubmit before the June 1 deadline for the second round. To help states prepare for the next round, the U.S. Department of Education has made all applications, peer reviewersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; comments and scores from first-round applicants available on its Web site.


Judge: Marine base improperly banned anti-Islam decals RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Camp Lejeune officials violated the rights of a military veteran who came to his job on base in a vehicle emblazoned with anti-Islamic decals after his son died in a terrorist bombing, a federal judge ruled. Jesse Nietoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stickers included one that said â&#x20AC;&#x153;ISLAM (equals) TERRORISMâ&#x20AC;? and another with a threat to defecate on the Quran. He also had a decal to commemorate the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, in which 17 shipmates died including Nietoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youngest son. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His vehicle is a way to express his mourning and anger,â&#x20AC;? said Nietoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney, Robert Muise. Nieto has been driving a different vehicle to his on-base job since the summer of 2008,

shocked.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m disappointed that North Carolina wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t chosen,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the superintendentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting last week, we were pretty confident we had put together a strong application...We really feel completely defeated with the announcement.â&#x20AC;? Many were under the impression that eight states would be chosen during the first round, not two, Moss said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really thought North Carolina was poised in the perfect position to hit all of the requirements laid out

by the secretary of education,â&#x20AC;? he said. Wilkins said she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure why North Carolina wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t chosen because she saw so much collaboration among districts and school boards to meet the requirements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were eternally optimistic about this. We met all the crtiteria. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be selected,â&#x20AC;? she said. Some may point to North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limit on charter schools as the reason the state wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t chosen, Moss said, though he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

as they were processed before a magistrate, or courtroom scuffles brought on in high-emotion cases when the accused meet their alleged victims face-to-face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can now simply take him over to the video conference and he can interact with the judge and the attorney without having to physcially leave the secure facility,â&#x20AC;? Prevatte said.

Carter said it will also cut down on local courtroom traffic. Jail personnel expect to phase in the video conferencing starting next week. Meanwhile, the fastscan booking device uses a computer pad to register fingerprints and allows the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office to quickly identify an individual who has been booked in the law en-

forcement system before, bypassing potential false IDs on prisoners providing fake names, Carter said. Carter said the technology will also interface with federal immigration data, streamlining the often time-consuming process of booking an inmate and checking their citizenship status. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a larger net,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Prevatte said the upgrades bring Lee County online with some of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s larger counties like Wake County, which had already obtained the technology. The metal detector will scan all visitors, including attorneys, meeting with inmates, Amundson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about security, keeping everything secure,â&#x20AC;? Amundson said.

bottles and other items that it can recycle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look at it like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re keeping this stuff out of the landfill,â&#x20AC;? said Randy Johnson, environmental health safety specialist at Pfizerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sanford branch and the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supplies donation coordinator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of this stuff, binders and such, people would throw it away and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think twice. We see it as a winwin situation for both parties.â&#x20AC;? One middle school teacher took 160 binders â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one for each of his students, Biediger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the beauty of this: You get the supplies you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really have money for,â&#x20AC;? said Amy Butters, Pfizerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s associate director of site communication and public rela-

tions for the specialty/ biotechnology operating unit. Biediger presented Pfizer employees with a thank-you card Thursday for the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continued donations. While many items have been gently worn, they still have some life left in them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of these things, people look at like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trash,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;One manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trash is another manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s treasure,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true here.â&#x20AC;? Plus, going â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? is a hot topic, Biediger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great opportunity for businesses like Pfizer to give back to the community by recycling some of their items,â&#x20AC;? she said. The supplies are welcomed by the teach-

ers, a resourceful group because they have to be, Biediger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful resource for our teachers,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a little creativity on the part of the teacher, all that is housed here can be used in a very positive vein.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun for Biediger to greet new teachers who stop by and stock up on supplies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very rare for someone to leave emptyhanded,â&#x20AC;? she said. The resource room will relocate at some point, she said, as construction begins for LCHSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renovations. The new location is still up in the air, Biediger said.

RESOURCE ROOM The Teacher Resource Room needs donations of new or gently used school supplies. District teachers need pencils, books, boxes of tissue, toys and file folders. Materials can be dropped off between 3:15-5 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at the first trailer facing Nash Street at Lee County High School.

but Muise said he plans to return with his decals next week. He has worked at Lejeune since 1994 and previously served 25 years in the Marine Corps, including two combat tours as an infantryman in Vietnam. U.S. District Judge Malcolm J. Howard said in a ruling posted Wednesday that a Lejeune regulation targeting inflammatory speech on base was improperly applied to Nietoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decals and not to pro-Islamic messages that may be just as incendiary. Howard concluded that the application of the rule violated Nietoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free speech. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While military officials are entitled to great deference in restricting speech to further the militaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs, they may not do so in a manner that discriminates against a particular point of view,â&#x20AC;? Howard wrote in his decision. Nieto did not seek monetary damages in his lawsuit. Maj. Nat Fahy, a spokesman for Camp Lejeune, said the ruling doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prevent the base from ensuring order and discipline.

Smith said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the public to fear an armed robber in the Kiwanis Park because he believes there is â&#x20AC;&#x153;more to this than it appears.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You would think if you were shot and attempted to be robbed, you would somewhat cooperate with law enforcement,â&#x20AC;? he said. Smith added that police are without leads if McKoy does not cooperate, meaning investigators will have to rely on the general public to come forward if there is an eyewitness to the reported Wednesday afternoon shooting. McKoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s injuries, which are not life-threatening, were reported to Sanford police around 6:44 p.m. Wednesday.

Judge keeps counts in corruption case By GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH (AP) — A federal judge has declined to dismiss any of the felony counts against an ex-aide of former North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley, saying he found no fault in the indictment. U.S. District Judge Terrence Boyle signed orders Wednesday that keep intact the 57-count indictment against Ruffin Poole, who is accused of helping move along state permits for coastal housing projects while receiving gifts and making a sizable investment return on two of those subdivisions. The trial could begin as early as April 26. Poole attorney Joe Zeszotarski asked Boyle last month to throw out 51 counts from the

corruption case, arguing that the government failed to allege essential elements of bribery and extortion and made other errors. Poole didn’t fit the definition of a “public official” required as a prerequisite to be accused of 12 racketeering-related counts, Zeszotarski wrote. Boyle denied all of the motions, writing that the indictment was adequate and contained necessary allegations to charge Poole under federal law. As for the “public official” requirement, Boyle wrote he agreed with prosecutors that “the proof will determine the sufficiency of the evidence at trial, and challenges to the proof at this stage are premature and inappropriate.” Boyle also wrote the indictment was legally

sufficient to charge Poole with honest services mail fraud. Poole argues the count is unconstitutionally vague. Prosecutors and Boyle cited a ruling involving former North Carolina lottery commissioner Kevin Geddings, who was convicted of five similar counts in 2006. Zeszotarski didn’t immediately return a phone call or respond to an e-mail seeking comment on Boyle’s orders. Six of the 57 counts that weren’t challenged by Poole — including three tax evasion charges — were filed in an updated indictment just two weeks ago. All the charges against Poole, once Easley’s special counsel and personal assistant, come with maximum punishments of hundreds of years in prison

and millions of dollars in fines. Easley, a Democrat who left office in January 2009, has not been charged with any crimes. Poole’s arraignment is scheduled for Monday in Raleigh federal court. A judge usually asks a defendant pleads guilty or not guilty to the charges at such a hearing. Boyle also may rule on Poole’s request to delay the trial until August to give Zeszotarski more time to prepare a defense. The U.S. Attorney’s Office still wants a trial this spring. Poole was originally indicted in January, the result of federal grand jurors meeting for most of 2009 and calling witnesses to seek testimony and documents about activities surrounding Easley and his associates.


Longtime journalist Roy Hardee dies at 79

GREENVILLE (AP) — Roy Hardee, a journalist who chronicled the news of eastern North Carolina for more than 50 years through words, pictures and film, died


ComfortCare Collection

early Thursday. He was 79. His son, Lee Hardee, said his father died in a hospice in Kansas City, Mo. The elder Hardee was hospitalized March 21 and was suffering from complications from advanced Parkinson’s disease. Hardee and his wife moved to the area in August 2008 to live with their son. Hardee died in his wife’s arms. “Roy Hardee was an old school newsman,”

said CBS News national correspondent Byron Pitts, who worked for Hardee at WNCT in Greenville. “He loved God, his family, the news and barbecue. He believed all news was local and news mattered. He didn’t serve readers or viewers or focus groups. He served his neighbors.” Pitts said Hardee “knew more cops and firefighters by name and their spouses’ names than most of us know our own relatives.”

Hardee began his career in television news as a one-man crew. He shot his own blackand-white film without sound, processed it on site, edited it himself and arranged for the footage to be projected over his shoulder as he anchored the newscast. Hardee also used still photography to illustrate life in eastern North Carolina, especially the destruction caused by hurricanes along the coast in the 1950s.

Democratic Senate hopefuls to meet for live debate RALEIGH (AP) — The leading Democratic candidates in North Carolina for a U.S. Senate seat are meeting for their first debate. WNCN-TV in Raleigh said Thursday the April 14 debate will bring together Cal Cunningham, Ken Lewis, Elaine Marshall, Marcus Williams and Ann Worthy. Cunningham, Lewis and Marshall are widely viewed as the leading candidates, and reach reported having more than $100,000 in cash on hand for their campaign at the beginning of this year. WNCN-TV says the candidates will answer questions submitted by voters during the 90-minute debate hosted by the television station and the League of Women Voters of North Carolina.

Man to serve 2 life sentences for double murder SMITHFIELD (AP) — A judge has decided a North Carolina man once sentenced to death for a double murder will serve back-toback life sentences. Superior Court Judge Robert Hobgood sentenced 40-year-old George Goode on Thursday in Johnston County court in Smithfield. His attorneys had argued that Goode should serve the life terms simultaneously rather than consecutively. Goode originally was sentenced to death for the 1992 murders of Leon and Margaret Batten, who lived in rural Johnston County and owned the trailer park where Goode lived. A federal judge cited ineffective attorneys when he overturned the death sentence last year.

Counties to get $24M for broadband

Duke scholar uncovers Haitian history

KINSTON (AP) — The Golden LEAF Foundation has awarded $24 million to a nonprofit group to attract $78 million in federal dollars for high-speed Internet access across North Carolina. When combined with other state matching funds, the total project

DURHAM (AP) — A Duke University graduate student has found what historians think is the only surviving printed copy of Haiti’s Declaration of Independence. The university said Thursday that 26-year-old history student Julia Gaffield discovered the yellowing document in February while combing through papers in Great

cost would be $111 million. Golden LEAF President Dan Gerlach says that would be the largest expenditure on expanding broadband access in North Carolina history. The money will go to bringing more than 1,448 miles of broadband fiber to 69 counties, 67

of which are currently lagging in high-speed Internet capability. The Research Triangle Park-based nonprofit MCNC will be in charge of the project. Gerlach says the federal government will make its decision about the $78 million by summer.

Britain’s National Archives. Haiti’s revolutionary leaders issued the declaration on Jan. 1, 1804, as they were fighting to overthrow French colonial rule and slavery, to become the world’s first black republic. They proclaimed in the document that the colony’s residents must “live independent or die.” Until now, Haiti lacked its own official copy of the declaration, which existed only in handwritten duplicates or in newspapers.

Plans being formed to move shipwreck from shore COROLLA (AP) — A recovery team is being organized to move what could be the oldest shipwreck found on North Carolina’s Outer Banks. The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Va., reported Thursday that plans are being made to move the wreck next week from its spot on the crashing surf to near the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in Corolla. Some are concerned the ship thought to be about 400 years old will go to pieces if left alone. Lighthouse keeper Meghan Agresto says state engineers plan to guide local volunteers who would help dig the timbers from the sand.

City’s schools skip bonuses amid cash crunch CHARLOTTE (AP) — The top administrators at one of North Carolina’s largest school districts are passing up bonuses because budget woes could force teacher layoffs and furloughs. The Charlotte Observer reported Thursday that Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Peter Gorman and other top administrators will skip executive bonuses. The district faces budget cuts and layoffs for the second year in a row. The school board in North Carolina’s largest city last week voted to start laying off about 600 teachers for the coming year. The school board’s majority has rejected pay cuts for the rest of the district’s 19,000 employees but will ask state legislators to allow authorizing furloughs, or unpaid time off.

FBI says ruse created to arrest militia members

merous other human body parts in the truck at a Kansas medical waste facility. Bio Care Southwest owner Paul Montano, 31, was arrested late Wednesday at his office on three counts of fraud and was being held on $100,000 bond. Sealed plastic bags containing the heads and body parts â&#x20AC;&#x201D; apparently dismembered with a chain saw or other coarse cutting instrument â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were found last week in 12 large red plastic tubs inside a delivery truck at a Stericycle Inc. facility in Kansas City, Kan. The tubs had shipping labels from The Learning Center, which is affiliated with Bio Care.

DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Members of a Midwest Christian militia accused of conspiring to overthrow the government were arrested after the FBI lured them to a warehouse to attend a phony memorial service, where they would be unarmed, Michiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief federal agent said Thursday. The ruse Saturday in Ann Arbor was part of a series of weekend raids in several states that resulted in the indictment of nine people in the alleged plot, officials said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We basically set up a scenario where we were able to draw them all to one location,â&#x20AC;? Andrew Arena, head of the FBI in Detroit, told The Associated Press. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the reason we did that was to obviously get them away from their weapons.â&#x20AC;? Nine suspected members of a group called Hutaree were charged this week with seditious conspiracy, or plotting to levy war against the U.S., attempting to use weapons of mass destruction and other crimes. They planned to make a false 911 call, kill responding police officers and set off a bomb at the funeral to kill many more, according to prosecutors. The FBI said it broke up the plot with the help of an undercover agent.

Abortion doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s killer lashes out at court WICHITA, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A man who murdered one of the few U.S. doctors who performed late-term abortions lashed out at the court during his sentencing hearing Thursday and took the opportunity to describe abortion procedures in detail, which he was previously forbidden from doing during the trial. Scott Roeder, 52, accused Sedgwick County District Judge Warren Wilbert of â&#x20AC;&#x153;duplicityâ&#x20AC;? and said his trial was a miscarriage of justice because he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed to present testimony about the evils of abortion. He said the deaths of a few providers like Dr. George Tiller must be weighed against the millions of abortions that have been performed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I stopped him so he could not dismember another innocent baby,â&#x20AC;? Roeder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wichita is a far safer place for unborn babies without George Tiller.â&#x20AC;? Roeder has admitted gunning down Tiller in the back of Tillerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wichita church last May. He faces a mandatory life prison sentence, and Wilbert must decide whether to make him eligible for parole after 25 or 50 years.

Body parts found in Kansas delivery truck

Albuquerque police on Thursday identified two men and a woman whose remains were discovered among six heads and nu-

Rising factory output points to recovery WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rising factory output and a decline in the pace of layoffs are giving economists confidence that the recovery has staying power. The government is expected to report Friday that the economy added jobs in March for only the second time since December 2007. Still, job creation is likely to remain weak for years to come, in part because U.S. factories have become more efficient, producing more goods with fewer workers. On top of that, the sectorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution to the overall economy has been shrinking for decades due to competition from China and other countries where factory workers are paid much less. Another reason the jobgrowth engine is stuck a low gear is that the building sector remains extremely weak in the aftermath of the housing bust. Construction spending fell sharply in February to its lowest level in eight years, the Commerce Department said Thursday. Spending fell particularly hard in commercial ventures, such as hotels and office buildings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even as manufacturing continues to hum along, the construction sector looks awful,â&#x20AC;? Michael Feroli, an economist at JPMorgan Chase, said. U.S. manufacturing activity increased in March at its fastest rate in 5 1/2 years, a private trade group said Thursday. Manufacturing data released Thursday by China, Britain and the 16 countries using the euro all showed a surge in activity in March. Manufacturers are benefiting from a robust recovery in Asia and parts

very long timeâ&#x20AC;? because of the damage caused by the recession. The interview was broadcast on NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Todayâ&#x20AC;? show. Economists forecast that Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unemployment report will show 190,000 jobs were added last month. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the largest gain in three years and only the second since the recession began. Much of that gain, however, will stem from temporary hiring for the U.S. Census. Excluding this, and the effect snowstorms had on the February unemployment count, some analysts estimate the economy will add about 25,000 to 50,000 jobs. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing executives, said its gauge of industrial company activity rose to 59.6 in March from 56.5 in February, the fastest growth since July 2004. A level above 50 indicates growth. Economists had expected a reading of 57. Factories that make goods for export are â&#x20AC;&#x153;evidently enjoying the benefits of the rebound in world trade, whereas other sectors more dependent on domestic sales are still struggling,â&#x20AC;? Paul Ashworth, U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said in a research note. New orders, a signal of future production, and existing production also grew faster in March. The Commerce Department said Thursday that construction spending fell 1.3 percent in February to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $846.23 billion. That was the lowest level since November 2002 and the fourth straight month of decline.

A private trade group said Thursday the manufacturing sector expanded in March at its strongest pace since July 2004. of Latin America and increased business investment in the United States. Factories have also been churning out goods for businesses that during the recession had let their stockpiles dwindle to save cash. If consumer spending doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pick up, that burst of manufacturing could ebb. The weak jobs market showed signs of stabilizing on Thursday. The Labor Department said new claims for jobless benefits dropped by 6,000 last week, to a seasonally adjusted 439,000. It was the fourth decline in five weeks, a signal that the pace of layoffs is slowing. Still, the number of people continuing to claim unemployment benefits remains high, at nearly 4.7 million â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a sign that hiring remains weak. And that figure doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

include the more than 6 million people who are receiving extended benefits from the federal government after their state benefits â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which last 26 weeks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ran out. Without much help from construction or manufacturing, the unemployment rate, now at 9.7 percent, is likely to be high for several years. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Thursday in a television interview that administration officials are â&#x20AC;&#x153;very worriedâ&#x20AC;? about recovering the more than 8 million jobs lost in the recession. But he noted that business growth has been improving and expects the economy â&#x20AC;&#x153;is going to start creating jobs again.â&#x20AC;? The secretary said the jobless rate is â&#x20AC;&#x153;still terribly high and is going to stay unacceptably high for a

Obama urges patience as law kicks in By JULIE PACE Associated Press Writer

PORTLAND, Maine â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Facing a public still wary of his massive health care overhaul, President Barack Obama urged Americans not to judge the nearly $1 trillion legislation he signed into law last week until the reforms take hold. During an enthusiastic, campaign-style appearance in Maineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest city, Obama mocked the pundits and pollsters who say he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting a boost from his yearlong campaign to pass the sweeping reform. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every single day since I signed the reform law, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been another poll or headline that said, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nation still divided on health care reform. Polls havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed yet.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Well, yes. It just happened last week,â&#x20AC;? Obama said to laughter. He continued: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can you imagine if some of these reporters were working on a farm and you planted some seeds, and they came out the next day and they looked and â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nothingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happened.

President Barack Obama gives a thumbs-down gesture while speaking on health insurance reform Thursday at the Portland Expo in Portland, Maine. a week, folks. So, before we find out if people like health care reform, we should wait to see what happens when we actually put it into place. Just a thought.â&#x20AC;? The presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overhaul extends health coverage to 32 million people who are uninsured and will shape how almost every American receives and pays for medical treatment. Some aspects of the plan go into effect this year, but

president himself has said it could take four years for the full overhaul to take hold. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trip to Portland took him to the home state of two moderate Republican senators, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, whose votes for the legislation the president ardently sought but ultimately could not win. The White House said both senators were invited to attend the event, but neither did.

During the speech, one in a series of appearances to sell the health reforms, Obama focused on his health planâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short- and long-term impact on small businesses, many of which have suffered during the economic downturn. Under the plan, businesses that have 25 or fewer employees with average annual wages of less than $50,000 will receive tax credits this year if they provide health care coverage to their workers. Those credits are expected to increase by 2014, with 4 million small businesses benefiting, according to the White House. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This health care tax is pro-jobs, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pro-business and it starts this year,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. Also starting in 2014, companies with up to 100 employees will be able to buy insurance through new state-based purchasing pools, or exchanges, with the goal of giving small businesses the same kind of purchasing power as larger companies. About 22 million self-employed Americans will also be able to purchase insurance through the exchanges.


New rules: Pay more for cars, less at pump

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Drivers will have to pay more for cars and trucks, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll save at the pump under tough new federal rules aimed at

boosting mileage, cutting emissions and hastening the next generation of fuelstingy hybrids and electric cars. The new standards,

Maples Septic Tank Service


announced Thursday, call for a 35.5 miles-per-gallon average within six years, up nearly 10 mpg from now. By setting national standards for fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions from tailpipes, the government hopes to squeeze out more miles per gallon whether you buy a tiny Smart fortwo micro car, a rugged Dodge Ram pickup truck or something in between. The rules will cost consumers an estimated $434 extra per vehicle in the 2012 model year and $926 per vehicle by 2016, the government said. But the heads of the Transportation Department and Environmental Protection Agency said car owners would

save more than $3,000 over the lives of their vehicles through better gas mileage. Touting the plan, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Putting more fuel-efficient cars on the road isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just the right thing to do for our environment, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a great way for Americans to save a lot of money at the pump.â&#x20AC;? The requirements for the 2012-2016 model years pleased environmentalists who have criticized sluggish efforts by previous administrations to boost fuel efficiency. They also were welcomed by automakers who have been seeking a single standard after California and a dozen states tried to create their own rules.

Obama visits flood emergency site in Massachusetts FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Detouring from his schedule, President Barack Obama on Thursday thanked emergency workers struggling against disastrous flooding in the Northeast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When these kind of natural disasters hit, what matters are the people on the ground,â&#x20AC;? Obama told crews at the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency headquarters some 20 miles west of Boston. Joined by Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, Obama met with state and local emergency operations officials who are monitoring floods throughout the state. The president thanked the workers on behalf of all Americans for their thorough response to the floods. He did not visit any flood-hit areas in his brief detour. Record rainfalls have caused flooding across the New England states, with Rhode Island taking the most devastating toll. Bridges and highways have washed out from Maine to Connecticut and sewage systems have been overwhelmed to the point that families were asked to stop flushing toilets.

Woman with 2 identities pleads guilty to fraud ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rachel Yould is a former Rhodes scholar who took on a new identity under a federal program that helps rape and domestic violence victims hide from their tormentors. But federal prosecutors say Yould used her new identity and life to defraud lenders out of more than $600,000 in student loan money that she used to play the stock market, buy a condo and launch a startup business. Yould pleaded guilty to federal fraud charges Thursday in a bizarre case of deception and double identities. Yould, 38, blamed her legal problems on bad advice she got from the Social Security Administration, but prosecutors say she is a schemer who used the program for victims of domestic violence and various government student loan programs to commit a sweeping fraud.

Sweet deals lure car buyers, lift sales in March DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a buyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market for car shoppers, with good deals expected to last at least another month as automakers continue to match Toyota discounts that lured thousands of buyers in

March. Seeking to repair the damage from a series of safety recalls, Toyota Motor Corp. offered unprecedented incentives last month, including lowinterest financing and free maintenance for returning customers. The deals worked so well that Toyotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U.S. sales jumped 41 percent and the automaker sold just 1,683 fewer cars than General Motors Co., the closest it has ever come to overtaking GM in monthly sales, according to auto research site GM and other automakers matched the deals, boosting the industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sales by 24 percent compared to the same month a year earlier, according to figures released Thursday and compiled by AutoData Corp.

CDC: New England tops in swine flu vaccinations

ATLANTA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; New England leads the nation in swine flu vaccinations, while the South has the lowest rates, U.S. health officials said Thursday in the first state-by-state report on turnout. Tiny Rhode Island has the highest rate of about 39 percent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; three times higher than Mississippi, which has the lowest percentage of residents vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC also reported that a record number of health care workers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; nearly two-thirds â&#x20AC;&#x201D; got seasonal flu vaccines last summer and fall, but the turnout for swine flu shots was much lower, more than a third. The reports offer the first look at how the swine flu vaccination campaign played out around the country. About 72 million to 81 million Americans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; about 24 percent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have been vaccinated since October, CDC officials said Thursday.

Ivanka Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accused stalker freed on $10K bond NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Prosecutors say a self-described celebrity stalker sent e-mail and Twitter messages threatening to kill himself in Ivanka Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s New York jewelry store and â&#x20AC;&#x153;commandeerâ&#x20AC;? her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newspaper. Justin Massler was released on $10,000 bond after his arraignment Thursday on stalking charges. The 27-year-old didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enter a plea. Manhattan prosecutors say Massler dispatched alarming messages for about two years to Trump, the daughter of Donald and Ivana Trump.

he Last Song,â&#x20AC;? the second Nicholas Sparksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; film this year, unfolds much like those before it. Girl â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ronnie (Miley Cyrus) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; meets boy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Will (Liam Hemsworth) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; along a Southern shoreline (Georgia subs for Wrightsville Beach); their love perseveres against a backdrop of family drama; and, of course, the sound of sniffles will reverberate throughout the theater before the closing credits roll. In Sparksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cockeyed alternate universe, Ronnie is a brooding teen who resents her father, Steve (Greg Kinnear), for her parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; divorce and rebels by barely graduating from high school and intentionally throwing her SAT, yet somehow gets offered admittance to Julliard for piano skills she stopped honing years ago. While spending the summer with her dad and her precocious little brother (Bobby Coleman), she treads the beach wearing a pout and black leather boots, although her midriff becomes increasingly bare as her summer fling with Will progresses. Likewise, when Will isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t working on his pecs or beach volleyball skills, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working as a grease monkey in a car repair

In other words, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of hooey marking time until the de rigueur tear jerking climax. Although all equally schmaltzy, Sparksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; previous film adaptations have made due thanks to competent casting and direction. Not so here, where Hemsworthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purpose seems only to make Cyrusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; agonizing, two-note acting appear passable by comparison

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in trouble when Kinnear provides the castâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bona fides. And, director Julie Anne Robinson arrives to her first feature film on the heels of a career spent hopscotching episodic TV gigs. However, the ultimate blame lies with Sparks, whose infamous reader/ audience manipulation has metastasized to the point that his reputation as a simple sentimentalist is slowly being supplanted for that of an emotional sadist. Unfortunately, it is only the audience that suffers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Last Songâ&#x20AC;? is just the same old refrain presented by performers who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t carry the tune.

Who wants to be a god, anyway? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the principle twist inserted into the new â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clash of the Titans,â&#x20AC;? a remake of the sometimes fondly recalled, technologically dated 1981 film about the fury of the gods of Mount Olympus and the rise of the young, earthly demigod Perseus. This time, Perseus (Sam Worthington) bears a distaste for his godlike nature: He just wants to be a regular dude and do normal guy stuff â&#x20AC;&#x201D; like ride his winged horse Pegasus on the beach. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perhaps a fitting updating of the film for an era marked by distrust for political leaders and Internet-empowered masses. Now, even the gods are spurned in their own movie: Deity is so out. On Mount Olympus, that golden round table in the clouds, Zeus (Liam Neeson, in the part played by Laurence Olivier in the original) is angry at an ungrateful mankind and lets loose his brother Hades (Ralph Fiennes) to destroy the city of Argos. As a new citizen of Argos, Perseus (the son of Zeus) doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much like this. He embarks on the familiar journey (particularly familiar for those who saw the recent, bouncier teen version

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Percy Jackson & the Olympiansâ&#x20AC;?) in defeating a number of mythical creatures, including a serpentine Medusa and the sea monster Kraken â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which, rest assured, is eventually released. Directed by Louis Leterrier (2008â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Incredible Hulkâ&#x20AC;?), â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Clash of the Titansâ&#x20AC;? will likely lure moviegoers chiefly by its digital effects (which are largely quite good but forgettable) and its promise of 3-D spectacle (which disappoints altogether). Like several blockbusters being released now in the post-â&#x20AC;?Avatarâ&#x20AC;? environment, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clash of the Titansâ&#x20AC;? was made in 2-D but converted to 3-D in post-production. Audiences will hardly notice any increased depth. Though this is preferable to the distraction of most 3-D, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surely not worth the hike in ticket price. Worthington, the Australian actor who stared in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Avatar,â&#x20AC;? knows a little something about 3-D. Here, he trades aqua blue-colored skin for an equally artificial bronze spray tan in the mold of â&#x20AC;&#x153;300â&#x20AC;? torsos. Worthington was largely eclipsed by the surrounding effects of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Avatarâ&#x20AC;?; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an interesting irony that few would be able to name the star of the biggest box-office grosser of all-time. In â&#x20AC;&#x153;Titans,â&#x20AC;? his presence is more explicit but also less substantial. With a crew cut atop his almost perfectly spherical head, Worthington grits his way through the film and does plenty of dramatic leaping while brandishing a sword. But he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t supply the charisma that the movie needs and the whole thing feels like a joyless slog. Fiennesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appearances provide a jolt. Arriving always with his head curiously fixed within a cloud of swirling black smog, he knows how to make an entrance. His part is surely the best in the movie and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clearly having fun. He hisses in a horse whisper: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What could be more beautiful than death?â&#x20AC;? But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not nearly enough to engender the kind of fondness people feel for the original â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clash of the Titans,â&#x20AC;? campy though it is. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clash of the Titans,â&#x20AC;? a Warner Bros. Pictures release, is rated PG-13 for fantasy action violence, some frightening images and brief sensuality. Running time: 106 minutes. Two stars out of four.

BEIJING â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president will attend a nuclear security summit in Washington this month, signaling a fresh start between the superpowers amid a chill in relations over Beijingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unhappiness with U.S. arms sales to Taiwan and a meeting with the Dalai Lama. It was unclear prior to Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announce-

ment whether President Hu Jintao would attend the U.S.-hosted event because of a number of contentious issues that have soured American-Sino ties this year. Hu will stop in Washington for the April 12-13 summit on his way to Brazil, Venezuela and Chile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The nuclear security summit will mainly discuss the threat posed by nuclear terrorism and

the corresponding measures of countries and the international community,â&#x20AC;? Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said at a news briefing Thursday. He called it an important multilateral meeting, and said China hoped it would â&#x20AC;&#x153;yield positive results.â&#x20AC;? Qin would not say if Hu would meet President Barack Obama for bilateral

Huâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trip was billed as specifically tackling nuclear issues. If all goes smoothly in the coming months, Washington plans to play host to Hu again in the fall with all the pomp of a state visit. The Foreign Ministry called in U.S. Ambassador Jon Huntsman on Thursday morning to tell him Hu would attend the Washington summit â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a positive message after weeks of being summoned for harangues over American policies.

Karzai blasts foreign influence in show of tension KABUL (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Hamid Karzai lashed out at the U.N. and international community Thursday, accusing them of interfering in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fraud-tarnished presidential election and seeking to weaken his authority after parliament rejected his bid to expand his control over the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electoral institutions. Karzai did not specifically mention the United States, but his harsh words â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and his practice of blaming foreigners for the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems â&#x20AC;&#x201D; reflect his increasingly difficult relations with Washington and its international allies. President Barack Obama paid an unannounced visit here Sunday in hopes of setting a new tone in dealings with the Afghan leader, as the U.S.-led coalition prepares for a showdown with the Taliban this summer in its southern stronghold of Kandahar â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Karzaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home province.

Cardinals defend pope, criticize media coverage VATICAN CITY (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Cardinals across Europe used their Holy Thursday sermons to defend Pope Benedict XVI from accusations he played a role in covering up sex abuse scandals, and an increasingly angry Vatican sought to deflect any criticism in the Western media. The relationship between the church and the media has become increasingly bit-

ter as the scandal buffeting the 1 billion-member church has touched the pontiff himself. On Wednesday, the church singled out The New York Times for criticism in an unusually harsh attack. Western news organizations, including The Associated Press, have reported extensively on the burgeoning scandal, and new details have emerged on an almost daily basis. On Holy Thursday, Benedict first celebrated a Mass in St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basilica dedicated to the union between the pope and the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priests. In the late afternoon, he washed the feet of 12 priests in a ceremony symbolizing humility and commemorating Christâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Last Supper with his 12 apostles on the evening before his Good Friday crucifixion.

Somali army recruits use sticks not guns

MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Somali army recruits are using sticks instead of guns as they train for combat against battle-hardened Islamist rebels. With the army lacking equipment and training, Somaliaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prime minister said an offensive the government has threatened to launch for months will be gradual instead of a blitzkrieg. The offensive, which has been repeatedly delayed for months, would be the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest attempt to restore control over an anarchic nation where an Islamist insurgency has taken root and whose coastline is dotted with pirate lairs. Hundreds of extremist foreign fighters have flocked to this African country, which experts fear could become a launching pad for attacks on the West.

Jackets rally from 5 down By RYAN SARDA AP photo


WINSTON-SALEM (AP) — Wake Forest forward AlFarouq Aminu declared for the NBA draft on Thursday and announced he will hire an agent, ensuring his departure with two years of eligibility remaining. The 6-foot-9 Aminu averaged 15.8 points this season and became the first Wake Forest player since Tim Duncan in 1997 to lead the Atlantic Coast Conference in rebounding at 10.7 per game. “This was a difficult decision,” Aminu said in a statement. “But after talking it over with my family and my coaches, I believe now is the right time for me to pursue my dream of playing in the NBA.”


SANFORD — Lee County might have been down, but it definitely wasn’t out. The Yellow Jackets rallied from a five-run deficit to beat Northern Durham 8-5 in the opening game of the Four Oaks Bank Tri-9 Conference Challenge on Thursday night at Lee County’s Sanford Stadium. Lee County (5-3, 3-3) trailed 5-0 after three and a half innings of play before scoring its first run in the bottom of the fourth. In the bottom of the fifth, the Yellow Jackets scored four more runs to tie the game at 5. In the sixth, Russell Clark’s basesloaded walk put the Yellow Jackets ahead 6-5 before two more walks added to the lead. Carson Wilson went

2-for-3 at the plate with an RBI triple in the fifth inning. Garrett Verrilli, who scored the Yellow Jackets’ first run in the fourth, also went 2-for-3 with an additional run scored. Dillon Frye was 1-for-1 with a single. Trent Clark was 1-for-2 with an RBI single. Frye started the game on the mound for the Yellow Jackets and struck out two while allowing five runs. Clark came on for three innings of relief and took the win, allowing just two hits while fanning five to help the Yellow Jackets get their second straight win. The Yellow Jackets will return for the second round of the Tri-9 Challenge when they play Garner at 4 p.m. Friday at Western Harnett High School. Lee County will host Western Harnett at 4 p.m. Saturday in the final round of the challenge on Saturday.

Duke players understand the ‘hate’


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA appears to be on the verge of expanding the men’s basketball tournament to 96 teams. Insisting that nothing has been decided, NCAA vice president Greg Shaheen nonetheless outlined a detailed plan Thursday that included the logistics and timing of a 96-team tournament, how much time off the players would have and even revenue distribution. Shaheen said the NCAA looked at keeping the current 65-team field and expanding to 68 or 80 teams, but decided the bigger bracket was best fit logistically and financially. It would be played during the same time frame as the current three-week tournament and include first-round byes for 32 teams. Although the plan still needs to be approved by the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee and passed on to the board of directors, most of the details already seem to be in place. “We needed to make sure that we did everything possible to use the due diligence window to understand ourselves and understand what the future would hold,” Shaheen said. “So that’s what we’re doing, that’s the process we’re undertaking. We’ve been handling it every day for the last several months and years, as we studied for the benefit of the organization.”

NEW YORK — Dayton denied last year’s national champs another title and took home one of its own for the first time in 42 years. Marcus Johnson scored 20 points and the Flyers handed North Carolina one more disheartening loss at the end of a lousy season, beating the Tar

Heels 79-68 Thursday night to win the NIT. Reserve guard Paul Williams added 16 points for No. 3 seed Dayton (25-12), which bounced back from a disappointing year to capture its third NIT title and first since 1968. Picked to win the Atlantic 10 Conference, the Flyers faded late and missed the NCAA tournament before turning things around and ending on a high

note. Will Graves shot North Carolina back into the game in the second half, finishing with 25 points for the fourth-seeded Tar Heels (20-17), who started the season hoping for back-to-back NCAA championships. Chris Wright had 14 points for the Flyers, as did tournament MVP Chris Johnson

INDIANAPOLIS — Lance Thomas never enjoyed being the bad guy. But he understood that playing at Duke meant getting used Scheyer to it. “You have to be able to play with a target on your back,” Thomas Singler said. Duke’s senior class never really grew comfortable with their program’s position as one of the villains of college basketball. But as badly as these Blue Devils want to be embraced, they understand they’ll always be the team so many fans love to hate. In a Final Four field full of teams that weren’t supposed to be here, one program that’s seemingly always here threatens to overshadow them: The big, bad Blue Devils (33-5) are in the national semifinals for the 11th time under coach Mike Krzyzewski and are preparing to face West Virginia (31-6) on Saturday night. “There are a number of programs that have that, and I think youngsters who come into the program have to know, and I think it’s exciting for them to know, that every game they play will be an exciting one,” Krzyzewski said Thursday. “There usually aren’t going to be any empty seats when you’re playing, and you’re going to be watched a lot. And as a result of being watched a lot, there are going to be people who really want you to win, and really want you to lose.” One former Duke hater now wears the uniform with pride. Senior Jon Scheyer admitted that as a student in

Indiana has a new favorite

Indy a special place for Duke

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Hoosier State has gone to the dawgs. Once relegated to second-class status behind Indiana, Notre Dame and Purdue, Butler has ridden a 24-game winning streak into the NCAA semifinals for a game against Michigan State on Saturday night. The Bulldogs have also elbowed their way to the forefront of conversations across basketball-mad Indiana, winning converts with their baby-faced coach and style points, too. They take pride in passing. They play defense. They credit others. And two-thirds of the roster grew up in Indiana. The combination has given Butler the most treasured commodity in Indiana basketball — statewide support — even while Purdue and Notre Dame are surging and the Hoosiers are rebuilding. “Today everyone in Indianapolis is a Butler Bulldog,” Indianapolis mayor Greg Ballard — an Indiana graduate — declared at a raucous pep rally this week that was more like an event for the NFL’s Colts. From small-town Connersville to Muncie, blue Butler shirts are popping up everywhere — even on Indiana’s Bloomington campus, where red-favoring locals have gone from casual observers to Butler backers (at least for this week). At Victory Field, home of Indy’s minor-league baseball team, the words “Go Dawgs” have been


scripted in the stands. At the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame in New Castle, with its interactive exhibits and life-size cutouts of players past, growing crowds are asking questions about Butler basketball. “This is a tremendous basketball state and you remember all the years IU got to the Final Four, it captivated the state,” said Indiana football coach Bill Lynch, a Butler Hall of Famer. “I’m sure it would be the same way if Purdue got there, too. I remember when Indiana State went, that kind of came out of nowhere.” The Sycamores’ moment in the spotlight faded quickly after Larry Bird went on to the NBA and the Hoosiers used their success to maintain a firm grip on the state’s No. 1 program for decades. Until this week the Hoosiers were the only Indiana school to reach the Final Four since 1981. The Bulldogs epitomize what Indiana fans like to see: ■ Since 2000, they have won more conference titles than Purdue, Notre Dame and Indiana combined. ■ They’ve won more overall games than the Big Three over the past 10 seasons. ■ They’ve made more NCAA tournament tips (five), than the Boilermakers, Irish or Hoosiers since 2003. ■ They graduate 90 percent of their players. ■ And they’ve done it all without producing a single NBA player. Purists love it.

Despite many injuries, Spartans back in Final Four INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The starting point guard, who also happens to lead the team in scoring and assists, is on the bench with a blown-out Achilles. Another starter is playing on a torn meniscus, which causes such excruciating pain “it feels like somebody is doing surgery on it.” Yet another key player has a bum foot. With apologies to hometown favorite Butler, Michigan State might be the most unlikely team here. One major injury is usually enough to derail a team come NCAA tournament time. Three? You’re better served planning some quality time on the couch rather than a trip to the Final Four.

“Of course you’d be surprised,” Draymond Green said Thursday. “That’s a lot.” The Spartans (28-8) look more like a M-A-S-H unit than a national title contender, have gone through 19 — and counting — different lineups and are relying on a point guard who has started all of six games, two of which were last weekend. Yet here they are, in their sixth Final Four in the last 12 years and the only team from last year making a repeat appearance. The Spartans play Butler (32-4) Saturday night in the first semifinal. “I can’t even fathom that,” Butler coach Brad Stevens said Thursday. “What a great job by them.”

Glennon gets spring snaps for Wolfpack

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mike Glennon can feel it a little more each day. Every time he drops back to pass in spring drills, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s becoming a better quarterback. Every time heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the huddle, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finding his voice as North Carolina Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confident onfield leader. And yet, the touted 6-foot-6 rising sophomore who arrived as the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presumed QB of the future knows he could end up as a backup again, anyway. After all, the Wolfpackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workouts these days are as much about whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not taking the snaps â&#x20AC;&#x201D; starter Russell Wilson, who is focusing on baseball this spring â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as who is. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I came here for, to be the starter and work with the (starters) and getting comfortable with them and them getting comfortable with me,â&#x20AC;? Glennon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a process that is going to help me become the player I want to be, and with him being gone, I have to make the most of my opportunity.â&#x20AC;? While Glennon says all the right things, he is in a difficult position. The competitive side of him is fighting for the starting job. The realistic side knows that Wilson was an all-Atlantic Coast Conference pick two seasons ago and led the ACC with 31 touchdown passes last year, a track record that firmly entrenches him as the starter and Glennon as the understudy. Yet while coach Tom Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien has said he expects Wilson to return to football in the fall, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible he might opt to play baseball exclusively. When asked at the end of last season about his plans, Wilson said he would decide â&#x20AC;&#x153;whenever the Lord knocks on my door and lets me know.â&#x20AC;? Wilson, a position player who made his first start on the mound this week for the baseball team, has been successful as the Wolfpackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quarterback with both his mobility and mistake-free play. That relegated Glennon to spot duty in seven games in which he threw for 248 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions with just 39 pass attempts. It was a modest start for a highly touted recruit widely regarded as one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top quarterbacks coming out of Centreville, Va. But during spring drills, the younger brother of former Virginia Tech quarterback Sean Glennon has been able to speed up his development by getting all the reps under center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very important to be familiar with the second quarterback as well as the first because you never know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen,â&#x20AC;? receiver Owen Spencer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With Mike preparing as the starter, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only going to help the team.â&#x20AC;? Still, Glennonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teammates have had to adjust a bit. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said the strong-armed Glennon recently nailed backup tight end Asa Watson in the head with a well-thrown pass that arrived just too quickly for Watson.

Percy, Stadler atop Houston leaderboard HUMBLE, Texas (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kevin Stadler and Cameron Percy shot 5-under 67s on Thursday to share the first-round lead in the Houston Open. Vaughn Taylor and James Driscoll â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Stadlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing partners in a morning threesome â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were a stroke back along with fellow morning starter Kevin Sutherland and Anthony Kim, who played in the afternoon when the wind picked up and gusted to 30 mph. Phil Mickelson, Padraig Harrington, Lee Westwood and 2007 champion Adam Scott were topped a group two strokes back at 69. Ernie Els, coming off

consecutive victories at Doral and Bay Hill, opened with 70. Fred Couples, who has won three straight starts on the Champions Tour, shot a 71. Several top players have come to Houston because they view the Tournament Course at Redstone as an ideal dry run for next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Masters. Organizers have groomed the 7,457yard layout to simulate the conditions at Augusta National, with fast greens, shaved mounds, light rough and the fairways mowed toward the tee. But Harrington said now that the tournament has started, the players are

Pettersen leads Ochoa by a shot RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Suzann Pettersen shot a bogey-free 5-under 67 on Thursday in the Kraft Nabisco Championship to take a one-stroke lead over former champion Lorena Ochoa, who missed birdie putts on her final two holes. Ochoa, who teed off three hours after Pettersen in the opening round of the seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first major, had chances to tie the Norwegian star but rolled a long putt just right of the hole on No. 17 and then missed a 10-footer on 18. Pettersen, trying to bounce back from a hip injury, had a great start by hitting 12 fairways and 13 greens in regulation. Topranked Ochoa, the 2008 champion, had six birdies and two bogeys. Majors champions Karrie Webb, Yani Tseng and Karen Stupples were in a group at 69. Defending champion Brittany Lincicome curled in a birdie putt on 12 to

drop to 4 under before bogeying Nos. 13 and 15 to finish with a 70. Michelle Wie had a 71. Pettersen has two top-10 finishes in three starts this year but also is coming off a hip injury that required a cortisone shot and kept her from swinging a club for about three weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought I was going to have two solid weeks of practice. It turned out to be two solid weeks on the couch,â&#x20AC;? said Pettersen, who won the 2007 LPGA Championship and has three straight top-5 finishes here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite demanding off the tees, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just certain tee shots youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to take on,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I think if you can place it off the tee, I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a very good position. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to play what this course gives you. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned that over the years. And patience, obviously. I would take a bogey-free round any day around this place.â&#x20AC;?

Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neal took part in some of practice Thursday, although coach Mike Brown isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t counting on him being back before the playoffs. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neal has been sidelined since tearing a ligament in his right thumb Feb. 25. He had surgery and was expected to miss the rest of the regular season. On Wednesday, the 14-time AllStar said he was ahead of schedule. Also, forward Anderson Varejao worked out after missing two games because of a sore left hamstring. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a game-time decision for Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Atlanta.

Smith working on extension with Minnesota

Ricketts says GM will decide managerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fate

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tubby Smith is working on a contract extension at Minnesota â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not looking for a new job. Rumors this week suggested Oregon would make a big-dollar offer to make Smith the successor to the recently fired Ernie Kent. Smith was in Indianapolis on Thursday during Final Four events and he says there was â&#x20AC;&#x153;nothing to talk aboutâ&#x20AC;? in regards to Oregon. He says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so happy at Minnesota that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working on a contract extension. Smith just finished his second season with Minnesota, leading the Gophers to their second straight NCAA tourney appearance. Before taking the Minnesota job,

Ricketts also said Thursday that money should be available if Hendry and Piniella want to add players as the trading deadline approaches. He said he likes this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for his first home opener as owner. A lifelong Cubs fan, Ricketts will be in Atlanta for Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season opener but wishes he could â&#x20AC;&#x153;fast forwardâ&#x20AC;? to the April 12 game at Wrigley Field.

me,” Thomas said Thursday. “Just to see how you have to mentally prepare and physically prepare for a team. ... Every team we play is going to try to take our head off — even with the year we had our freshman year, when it was every team’s day in the sun when they played us.” For several reasons, these current Blue Devils are cuddlier than their predecessors, many of whom seemed to take particular delight in the villain’s role. Unlike past Duke teams with antagonists like Christian Laettner and J.J. Redick on the roster, this team lacks those lightning-rod personalities. “You don’t have the same guys — Jeter’s not coming back every year for us,” Krzyzewski said, referring to the New York Yankees’ shortstop. “The young guys coming in have to try to understand that.” Something else those Duke teams had in common: They won with amazing frequency. The Blue Devils

claimed three national titles and reached 10 Final Fours from 19862004. Then came what counts as a postseason lull in Krzyzewskiville: In the five years after that, they lost three times in the regional semifinals and in the other years didn’t even survive the opening weekend. “People don’t stop coming at you just because you lost a couple times,” Scheyer said. “Beating Duke is a big thing.” And yet, certain incidents seem to crystallize why some people just don’t like them. Late in the South Regional final against Baylor, Scheyer swung his elbows near LaceDarius Dunn while calling a timeout. That prompted the Bears’ Quincy Acy to step in and intervene, and a technical foul was called on Acy, not Scheyer. Then, a questionable charge called on Acy that instead could have been Zoubek’s fifth foul led to another round of complaints that Duke gets all the calls.

— who scored 22 in a semifinal victory over Mississippi. Including the Rebels and Tar Heels, Dayton beat four teams from BCS conferences en route to the championship. Cincinnati and Illinois were the others. Coach Roy Williams and the Tar Heels fell short in their attempt to grab a somewhat dubious piece of college basketball history. A victory Thursday night would have made them the first team to follow up an NCAA national championship with an NIT crown the next year. With officials discussing expanding the NCAA tournament to 96 teams as soon as next year, it’s possible this could be the last NIT, an event with a rich history that dates to 1938. NCAA vice president Greg Shaheen said Thursday no decision has been

made about the future of the postseason NIT, which is operated independently by the NCAA. How down-and-out were these Tar Heels heading into the postseason? When the 32-team NIT draw was announced, they opened at 35-1 odds to win the title. And while Dayton has been a regular in this event, it was strange to see North Carolina on the college basketball undercard this time of year. One of the sport’s true heavyweights, the Tar Heels own five NCAA national championships, including an 89-72 victory over Michigan State in last year’s title game. Tom Izzo and the Spartans are back in the Final Four, set to play Butler in Indianapolis on Saturday. North Carolina was left to chase a consolation prize following a 16-16 regular season wrecked by injuries, leaky defense and a string of embarrassing losses. The blue bloods from Tobacco Road won their

only NIT title in 1971, when current Denver Nuggets coach George Karl was on the team. There was a bright spot for North Carolina in this one, though. Deon Thompson, nursing an aching back, set an NCAA record for career games played with 152, breaking a mark held by Kentucky’s Wayne Turner (1996-99) and Florida’s Walter Hodge (2006-09). Thompson had 16 points and 13 rebounds in the semifinals Tuesday night, when the Tar Heels scored the final five points in regulation to force overtime and then beat Rhode Island 68-67. The senior forward finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds in this one. Dayton has some successful history of its own. The Flyers beat North Carolina in the 1967 NCAA Final Four, Dean Smith’s first trip to the national semifinals as UNC head coach, before losing to John Wooden and UCLA in the championship game.

Wife’s mostly male colleagues are threat to jealous husband

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: In order to take full advantage of all the changes heading your way, clear up unfinished business in your personal, financial and professional lives. Investments, settlements or any dealings with agencies or institutions will be to your benefit. A change of location or making your life and living arrangements simpler will make a big difference in your outlook, attitude and future. Your numbers are 2, 12, 17, 27, 29, 36, 44 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep a close watch on your financial situation. An opportunity to make some subtle changes will allow you the freedom you’ve been looking for. A romantic dilemma will leave you in limbo. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Troubles at home and with your relationships can be expected. Don’t let a stubborn attitude lead to problems you can’t reverse. Focus on your goals, not silly arguments. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your involvement in a good cause can be beneficial but, if you are too busy doing all the work, you will miss meeting someone with something to offer you. An unexpected change of plans must be handled honestly. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t be afraid of change and you won’t be disappointed. Networking can broaden your awareness while helping you scope out some interesting alternatives to the way you live your life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get business out of the way before you decide to play. Emotional deception can be costly if you listen to a risky scheme. Focus on your goals, completing your work and getting together with friends, lovers or family. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t believe everything you hear. You will be up against some tough competition but, if you are honest about who you


are and what you have to offer, you will win in the end. Love is in the stars, whether you are with someone or single. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The more time you spend talking to others, the sooner you will realize how much you have to offer. An interesting change regarding working will leave you open to take on a project that offers greater income. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You need to forget about serious issues and take a moment to relax. If you push to get things done, you will hit a brick wall. You will accomplish so much more if you can distance yourself from business and emotional worries that cannot be resolved quite yet. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will come into money in an unusual way but, if you aren’t honest and upfront, you will face opposition. Keep a low profile and don’t share information on how much you have or are entitled to receive. Exaggeration will lead to trouble. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Join forces with people who have similar interests and you will make headway. Don’t, however, believe everything you hear. Check out references and ask questions that will allow you to decide who is a good fit for you and who isn’t. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Someone is likely to withhold information. Be as honest as you can. Offer alternatives if someone is dissatisfied with your plans. Be willing to work with what’s being offered and you will find common ground. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): If you want to know what’s going on, ask. Your ability to twist things around to fit your needs will enable you to control a situation that has the potential to spin out of control. Don’t fall victim to uncertainty when a decision must be made in order to get ahead.

DEAR ABBY: My husband, “Hugh,” and I have been married 16 years. We generally have a good relationship, with few arguments. We seldom participate in activities that don’t include each other. Three years ago, I was hired to work in the office of a manufacturing facility. The majority of the workers are men. Although Hugh denies it, I suspect he’s uncomfortable about it. When I participate in company events for employees only, he becomes jealous and rants that it isn’t fair for spouses to be excluded. Once in a while, my co-workers and I go out for drinks after work. When I’m asked to join them, Hugh goes on the offensive, demanding to know all the details. He then calls my cell phone repeatedly until I get home. I’m hurt that he finds me and my associates so untrustworthy. He has met the people I work with and has seen that they’re all friendly and happily married. I encourage him to do things on his own with his friends, hoping he’ll see that I trust him and will return the favor. What can I do to improve the situation? — PULLED IN TWO IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR PULLED IN TWO: Have you talked to your husband about his behavior and how it makes you feel? If not, you should. But please understand that short of quitting your job and going to work in a convent, you can’t improve the situ-

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

ation. The problem is your husband is insecure. Only he can fix that, which would first require his admitting it. Sad to say, he may not even be able to admit it to himself. This is a difficult time to go jobhunting, so I don’t advise it. But in the meantime, please do not make his problem your own. Accept that he has a problem, but don’t allow it to jeopardize your work relationships. o DEAR ABBY: Is it OK to have sex when you’re a guest in someone’s home? I say no, but my husband feels the host knows we’re married so it’s not inappropriate. I think it’s rude and shows a lack of respect for the host. Would you please settle this once and for all? When we stay with friends, we end up fighting during our vacation. — UNCOMFORTABLE IN TEXAS

DEAR UNCOMFORTABLE: For a married couple to make love when they are houseguests isn’t rude or disrespectful, provided the pictures don’t fall off the walls and there are no complaints about noise from the neighbors. However, if the idea makes you uncomfortable and unable to relax and enjoy the intimacy, then you and your husband should vacation in a hotel where you can expect to have more privacy. o DEAR ABBY: How do I stop my shoes from squeaking? I have a pair that I love, but they squeak so badly it drives me crazy. Everyone can hear my shoes when I am walking. Can you help? — NOT THE OLD SOFT SHOE DEAR N.T.O.S.S.: According to the book “Haley’s Hints,” a way to solve your problem is to pierce the soles of your squeaky shoes four or five times with a darning needle at the ball of the foot. If that doesn’t do the trick, “place the shoes in a solution of salt water at room temperature, just so the soles are covered. After soaking for 15 minutes, dry them off and place the soles in boiled linseed oil overnight. The next morning, remove the shoes, dry them well and your finicky footwear should be completely silenced!”



Man sues, claims he fell after stepping in feces

Court: Woman’s phone annoying, but not contempt

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — A Poquoson man who said he fell after stepping in dog feces at a PetSmart store has filed a $1 million negligence lawsuit against the company. Robert Holloway alleges in his lawsuit in U.S. District Court that he badly injured his back, struck his head and knocked out four teeth when he slipped in January 2009 at a Newport News PetSmart. He alleges that PetSmart and its manager should have protected him from a hazardous condition created when they allowed animals to defecate on the floor. In court documents, Phoenix-based PetSmart denied the negligence allegations.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida appeal court has overturned a ruling in which a woman was held in contempt and her cell phone ordered destroyed after it rang in a courtroom. The Fifth District Court of Appeal in Daytona Beach concluded that, while annoying, 28-year-old Michelle McRoy’s actions did not meet the necessary legal standards for contempt. McRoy was in an Orange County Circuit courtroom when her phone began to ring loudly. McRoy admitted she hadn’t checked to see that it was turned off after her sister used it outside the courtroom. McRoy said the judge stopped proceedings and tossed her phone into a garbage can. McRoy said she hopes to get the phone back.

Ohio woman gives birth to twins a week apart CLEVELAND (AP) — An Ohio couple can look forward to an annual birthday season, because their new twins were born a week apart. Jennifer Renz of North Canton went into labor while at her doctor’s office on March 22. She wasn’t due for another 12 weeks but gave birth at a Cleveland hospital to a 1-pound, 13-ounce girl, named Grace. Doctors said at that point things kind of stopped, with the other baby, a boy, still in the womb. They decided not to induce labor but allow the second child more time to grow inside his mother. Little Noah didn’t arrive for another seven days, weighing in at 2 pounds, 15 ounces. Both infants are now in a neonatal intensive care unit. Their father, Dennis Renz, said the family plans to celebrate the birthdays separately.


Stolen snack truck triggers feeding frenzy ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Atlantic City police said a Frito-Lay delivery truck was stolen, abandoned and recovered, but not before some people helped themselves to “free” snacks. Police Sgt. Monica McMenamin said the truck was stolen at about 10:45 a.m. Thursday when the driver went inside a store on Baltic Avenue, four blocks west of the Boardwalk casinos, to make a delivery.

Remember that Christ died for you Q: Why did God allow Jesus to be put to death? Wouldn’t it have been better for God to have let Jesus keep on living? -- T.D. A: One of the Bible’s greatest truths is that Jesus Christ came into the world for one reason: to bring us back to God. He didn’t come just to bring us more knowledge, or teach us greater truths, or even heal people of their diseases -- although He did all this. Instead, He came into the world to bridge the gap between us and God. How could He do this? There was only one way -- and that was to deal with the one thing that cuts us off from God. What is this? The Bible summarizes it in one word: Sin. When we sin, we choose to go our way instead of God’s way. When we sin, we leave God out of our lives, and act as if He isn’t important or doesn’t even exist. As a result, we’re cut off from God and subject to His judgment -- and no matter how hard we try, we cannot bridge that gap by ourselves. Jesus Christ came into the world to deal with our sins -- but in order to do this He had to take upon Himself the judgment we deserve for our sins. And that is what He did on the cross. His blood was shed for us, and He died in our place. Why did God allow His Son to be put to death? He did it because He loves us and yearns for us to spend eternity with Him. Today, as Christians around the world remember Christ’s death, put your trust in Him for your salvation. The Bible’s promise is for you: “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31).

Sale is residential real property with less than fifteen (15) rental units, an order for possession of the property may be issued pursuant to N.C.G.S. 45-21.29 in favor of the purchaser and against the party or parties in possession by the Clerk of Superior Court. Any person who occupies the property pursuant to a rental agreement entered into or renewed on or after October 1, 2007, may, after receiving the notice of sale, terminate the rental agreement upon ten (10) days’ notice to the landlord. The tenant is liable for rent due under the rental agreement prorated to the effective date of termination.
