More federal bonds likely to make up difference By BILLY BALL bball@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — Local school officials made their case for more dollars Monday. Now it’s up to county commissioners to determine how much more Lee County can afford to borrow to pay for long-sought renovations at aging Lee County High School. “At the end of the day when the dust settles, the question is how do we want to educate our students in this community?” said Lee County Schools Superintendent Jeff Moss. County commissioners and the board of education huddled Monday to discuss the possibility of seeking an additional $2.6 million in lowinterest Recovery Zone Economic Development bonds for work at the school. Commissioners have

SANFORD — Add the Sanford City Council to the list of parties who are apparently displeased with the Lee County Economic Development Corporation. The council discussed ways for revamping the county’s economic recruiting group in recession-wracked Lee. LCEDC has been a target of late for 2010 election candidates and current Lee County commissioners who say it has not been active enough. “It’s sad right now,” said Sanford Mayor Pro Tem Michael Stone. “... We’re losing the battle in the retail sector majorly.” City officials called for a restructuring of the LCEDC Economic Development Board, namely imposing two-term limits and seeking a more “diversified” roster, Stone said. Stone said the board is too homogeneous in terms of race and socio-economic background. “We have to represent more than one segment of the community,” he said. Sanford officials also focused on growing the county’s retail base, complaining that LCEDC focuses chiefly on industry recruitment and retention. Stone said surrounding communities have been able

Atkins: The teachers need a voice Political newcomer wants a more open board By CAITLIN MULLEN

THE CANDIDATES

cmullen@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — Dana Wicker Atkins is not a political person and, until recently, didn’t have any desire to hold public office. But after talking with educators in Lee County and sharing her thoughts with her husband Brandon night after night, she decided to throw her hat into the ring for a seat on the Lee County Board of Education this May. “My main reason for running is because I got upset in talking with a lot of teachers in town,” she said. “Many felt they didn’t have a place to go if they didn’t agree with policy changes.” Atkins said she’s a firm believer in being able to speak her mind, and that goes for

The thief or thieves also took a red bandana that belonged to Radmer’s grandmother and a 1988 $5 bill, a keepsake since it was withdrawn by his family when he was born, he said. “I can replace TVs, money and guns,� Radmer said. “Stuff like that is irreplaceable.� The intruder ransacked two rooms in the house, Radmer said.

$30k in property stolen from Spring Lake home

Bragg’s hospital commander reassigned

SPRING LAKE (MCT) — Someone broke into a home in Spring Lake on Thursday and stole property valued at $30,410, according to a Harnett County Sheriff’s Office report. It happened on the 500 block of Harger Lane at the home of Daniel Dennis Radmer and his stepfather, Boyce Jeff Sizemore. The stolen items included three shotguns, a rifle and two pistols, cash and a television. But it’s the theft of rocks and gemstones, including jewelry belonging to his late mother, that is most upsetting to Radmer. “They were family heirlooms,� he said. Some of the gemstones were given to him by his grandfather and his mother, who both were rock hounds, the 21-yearold Radmer said. He is part owner of R’s Gems & Rocks on Bragg Boulevard in Fayetteville,

FORT BRAGG (AP) — The commander of the hospital at a North Carolina Army post has been nominated for the rank of brigadier general. A statement from the Department of Defense on Monday said President Barack Obama nominated Col. Nadja West for appointment to brigadier general. West was scheduled to relinquish command of Womack Army Medical Center on Friday at a ceremony at Fort Bragg. She is being reassigned to Europe Regional Medical Command in Landstuhl, Germany. West took command of the hospital in July 2008. She attended West Point and graduated from the George Washington University School of Medicine. Womack Army Medical Center serves the largest beneficiary population in the Army with more than 160,000 soldiers, families and retirees.

Knights salute crash with jump By JUSTIN GOBLE Special to The Herald

SILK HOPE — March 8, 1973, will forever be a defining day in the history of both Silk Hope and the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachute team. In the early hours of that morning, a C-47 aircraft was heading from Fort Bragg to Overland, Kan., for the 14-man team’s first demonstration. At around 8:45 a.m., Silk Hope resident Janelle Newlin reported sounds of an explosion on her farm. Members of the Silk Hope Fire Department responded to the call, where they found that the C-47 had crashed. Every member of the team perished in the incident. Silk Hope Ruritan member Jack Johnson remembers it well. “When we got the word, we went straight there,� he said. “The fire marshal was already on the scene. There was only one more chance for us to go in before it got too bad. I remember coming up to the field and seeing the entire tail section resting on top of the trees.� The crash was the single biggest loss the Golden Knights had ever experienced, and the residents of Silk Hope did everything they could to accommodate the group while members investigated the incident. “We took one of the fire trucks out and let them use one of the four bays we had as a base of operations,� Johnson said. “They ended up operating out of there for two weeks while they investigated the crash.� After the incident, members of the Silk Hope Ruritan decided to honor both those who lost their lives and the fire department members who responded to the crash by installing a memorial plaque at the base of the SHFD flagpole. The memo-

JUSTIN GOBLE/The Sanford Herald

A member of the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachute team lands in a field near Silk Hope Saturday rial remained there until the building was recently torn down to make way for a new fire department/ community building. Instead of simply moving the memorial, Ruritan members decided to rededicate it at the new SHFD building. That’s when Johnson decided to ask the Golden Knights if they wanted to be involved in the ceremony. “We needed to move the memorial we had there to the new building,� Johnson said. “That’s what started the process. I had a meeting with the Golden Knights and asked them if they could come out for a rededication ceremony. They said that was something they could support and offered to do a jump.� That jump and rededication took part Saturday, April 17, during the town’s annual Farm Heritage Day festivities, where hundreds came out to witness the event. Dropping from a height of 12,500 feet, the eightman “Gold Team� demonstrated the precision that the Golden Knights are renowned for. After completing a maneuver in which to members remained in free fall while others kept

a circular formation, each person took turns landing a small strip of baseball field. “It’s like a human air traffic pattern,� Sgt. Dan Cook, the team’s narrator, said of the landing formation. “Each team member has to circle the field until the man before them lands.� Before the jump, team members said they were more than prepared for the day’s events. Sgt. 1st Class Dan Hewig said there “wasn’t much to it� when preparing for a jump. “We basically just do safety checks and what they call a ‘dirt dive,’ where we practice the maneuvers that we’re going to perform in the air on the ground. Other than that, we just jump out of the airplane� Sgt. 1st Class Angela Nichols said her main concern was the weather. Winds and cloud cover, along with a chance of rain, had members of the Golden Knights crew making adjustments right up to jump time. “The clouds, winds, it all plays a big part in how we do a jump,� she said. “Those things determine when you open the canopy, how high you jump from and whether you can jump

at all. Though concerned with the details of the event, both members were quick to point out that the team was heavily invested in the day’s jump and what it meant to the Golden Knights and the residents of Silk Hope. “We want to make sure we memorialize our fallen teammates,� Nichols said. “They will always be part of the team, even if they aren’t here and we never met them. That’s what today is all about.� “The team is what it is today because of those that came before us,� Hewig said. “When you see what they went through and what they had, it definitely influences who we are and what we do.� Johnson said he was happy that so many came out for the rededication and jump, since it ensures that the memory of the crash will live on. And for his part in making the jump possible, the Golden Knights recognized Johnson by presenting him with the flags team members flew during the jump.

Asia as airline travel in parts of our world have come to a virtual standstill. Obviously, these travelers had no idea that their plans would be affected by a volcanic cloud. We are accustomed to life as normal. That includes being able to get into our vehicle and travel when we wish — or scheduling an airline flight and counting on that flight to travel on schedule. There are those who believe that airplanes would be fine to travel in the midst of the volcanic clouds. That’s a decision that would need to be made by people with far more expertise than an everyday observer. What is important to remem-

ber is that the vocanic clouds are not normal clouds. As the AP reports, “Scientists say because this volcano is located below a glacial ice cap, magma is being cooled quickly, causing explosions and plumes of grit that can be catastrophic to plane engines, depending on prevailing winds.” The AP noted how airplanes can be affected. “Ash and grit from volcanic eruptions can sabotage a plane in many ways: the abrasive ash can sandblast a jet’s windshield, block fuel nozzles, contaminate the oil system and electronics and plug the tubes that sense airspeed. But the most immediate danger is to the engines. Melted ash can then

congeal on the blades and block the normal flow of air, causing engines to shut down.” So, airline travel may be save in some areas. Perhaps not in other areas. The bottom line is that safety should be the foremost factor for one and all. A little inconvenience, even for a week or so, would seem to be much more preferable than taking a risk in the air that could prove deadly. Mother Nature is in control at this time — and it’s patience that we need. It may have a costly affect in our world’s economy, but that’s preferable to the risks in the air.

Battle vs. Burr

T

hree weeks prior to the May primary, polls show nearly half of likely Democratic voters don’t know who they will choose to challenge incumbent Republican U.S. Senator Richard Burr. There’s an obvious reason for that indecision. Most voters have never heard of or only recently heard of all but one of the six Democrats running. The one exception is Secretary of State Elaine Marshall, the first woman ever elected to statewide office in North Carolina. Marshall, 64, holds a fairly obscure office. As secretary of state, her two biggest jobs are overseeing business filings and lobbying regulations. She has made a name for herself as a fairly blunt politician who speaks her mind. But that trait didn’t help her much in 2002, when she lost in the primary for U.S. Senate. Marshall also isn’t the favorite of the party establishment in Washington. That distinction belongs to WinstonSalem lawyer and former state Sen. Cal Cunningham. Those party regulars see 37-year-old Cunningham as the biggest threat to Burr. He’s articulate, telegenic and has a near-ideal resume for non-incumbent. He has some political experience but not a long track record that can be used against him. Cunningham also is an Army reservist lawyer who did a stint in Iraq in 2007. Those advantages helped him to raise enough money to recently go up on state airwaves with a biographical ad, something his opponents have yet to do. The big question for Cunningham is whether being the party’s establishment candidate carries more risk than reward. In public appearances, he’s seemed a bit over-coached and overrehearsed. Ken Lewis, a 48-year-old Chapel Hill lawyer, comes into the race having worked behind the scenes for several Democratic candidates, but never having held office himself. Lewis does have a strong professional background, having worked for two major law firms in state. He’s also a graduate of Harvard Law School. The field of Democrats also includes Lumberton lawyer Marcus Williams, Gastonia school teacher Ann Worthy and McDowell County photographer Susan Harris. Most pundits aren’t giving those three much of a chance. Williams, though, is a viable candidate, active in the State Bar Association, who will get some support come Election Day. In fact, no candidate is likely to get the 40 percent of the vote needed to avoid a run-off. The candidates aren’t simply struggling to become known to the electorate. The front-runners generally haven’t set themselves apart on major issues. All agree with health care reform plan passed by Congress. Only Marshall has criticized the troop buildup and continuing role of the United States in Afghanistan.

Health care market I

n economics we often talk about markets. Markets are simply where buyers and sellers come together to trade. In the old days, these transactions occurred in a physical market. Today, they can also occur in electronic markets, where buyers and sellers don’t even see each other. Any economic market answers three questions: (1) What is produced and sold? (2) What is the price of the items sold? And (3) How much is sold? In an unconstrained, or free market, these questions are answered by the interactions between buyers and sellers and the competition among sellers. In determining what is sold, sellers have an incentive to provide what buyers want. Competition between alternative sellers keeps prices at levels that cover costs, compensates for risks and gives the seller a sufficient return to stay in an uncertain market. The resulting price is that which equates the amount sellers want to provide to the amount buyers want to purchase. With the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — the health care bill — each of these three questions in the health care market will be directly influenced by the federal government. Here’s how. The legislation gives the federal secretary of Health and Human Services the power to set the provisions and coverage in health insurance plans. In other words, the HHS secretary will have a strong role in saying what is produced and sold in the health insurance market. The new bill also gives the HHS secretary some direct power over the prices (premiums) charged for health insurance policies. Specifically, the legislation says the secretary can review “unreasonable” increases in premiums for health insurance coverage. Finally, the new act mandates that everyone have health insurance, and if not (with a few exceptions), a penalty will be levied for not having coverage. This restriction obviously puts a floor on the third market question of how much is sold; now everyone must have at least some standard health insurance policy, where “standard” is defined by the secretary of HHS. These expanded powers of the federal government in the health care market are obviously controversial — some say they go too far, while others say they don’t go far enough. Rather than take sides, let me raise some issues and questions — some pros and cons — that might clarify the debate and help you decide where you stand. Giving the HHS secretary the power to say what health insurance policies will cover is based on the notion that everyone should be guaranteed some minimal level of health insurance protection. But left unsaid in the legislation is how the secretary will determine what’s in health insurance policies. Also, if changes are made to the standard policy over time, will those changes apply only to newly written policies or all policies — new and existing? We don’t know.

Dr. Mike Walden You Decide Dr. Mike Walden is a professor and economist at N.C. State University

The new power given to the HHS secretary over insurance premiums is in response to public displeasure with some of the increases in premiums that have occurred in recent years, although it should be pointed out that government data show health insurance prices have actually risen slower than the average of all consumer prices since 2005. Still, there are many unanswered questions related to this new authority. For example, how will the secretary define unreasonable premium increases? Will there be coordination between the allowable premium increases and the required insurance provisions, especially when new provisions are mandated? Like any private business, if insurers can’t recover their costs, they won’t remain in business. The mandate that everyone have health insurance has sparked some of the most heated debates about the new health care bill. Indeed, there may be a constitutional challenge to this requirement. Opponents say the federal government doesn’t have the power to require anyone to purchase a private product. Leaving this constitutional question to the lawyers, supporters of the mandate say it is necessary for two reasons. First, as a compassionate society, no one will ever be denied health care. Thus, without a mandate, there is the likelihood some individuals would simply not purchase health insurance and then rely on the free provision of care when needed. Second, one of the goals of the new health care bill is to moderate the increase in insurance premiums that can occur as an individual ages and uses the health care system more. However, to accomplish this objective, young and healthy individuals must be part of the health insurance pool. The young insured persons would pay somewhat higher premiums than their health condition would indicate. In essence, the payments for health insurance would be “front-loaded,” higher than needed when young but lower than needed when older. Health care and the new health care bill will continue to be discussed and debated. There remain many unanswered questions about implementation of the government’s new powers and effects of those powers that will have to be decided. How the bill is applied may be just as important what the bill does!

It seems to me it would be interesting to know if or how many of the “newly created jobs” released by the “authorities” includes the many new Census workers who were former members of Acorn. Just a thought to ponder over. Acorn was so helpful in the last presidential election. There are now more than 13 state government legal cases have been filed in their courts concerning voter fraud. The government set aside $7.8 billion to conduct the Census. The nation added 162,000 jobs in March; 48,000 of which were Census jobs, the Labor Department reported. The unemployment rate is stuck at 9.7 percent for the third month in a row, largely because more people entered the work force. The big boost in Census jobs anticipated in April and May could reduce the unemployment rate slightly, but those jobs are mostly part-time and last six to eight weeks, so the unemployment rate is likely to increase again in June without equivalent hiring from the private sector. Census workers accounted for nearly a third of the jobs added in March. Over the next two months, another 600,000 to 700,000 Census jobs will be added, putting $10 to $25 an hour into pockets of some desperate job seekers. Census jobs help temporarily, but it appears a new approach to private sector longer lasting jobs are needed. We certainly don’t need more government jobs. DOROTHY Q. BURSEY Sanford

Impossible to sit, stand, walk... It was all I could do to get in my car to get to the doctor’s ofďŹ ce. During my ďŹ rst exam, my range of motion was VERY limited! It was almost impossible to sit, stand, walk or even breathe! After examining my x-rays, we started treatment. After a mild adjustment on my neck, by that afternoon, I could see improvement. The next few days, my pain decreased drastically! As each visit passed, my pain was less and less. I truly believe in chiropractic care and would recommend it to anyone suffering from back pain as I did. Thanks Dr. Ammons & Dr. Silvester!

Heuts said the discussion thus far as been “generally very healthy,� although he did not attend Monday’s City Council session. He said the LCEDC typically focuses on manufacturing rather than retail because the former tends to have more of a “ripple effect throughout the community.� “We look at retail as an after-effect of the manufacturing jobs that are

here,� Heuts said. “That’s why we think it’s more of an economic driver in a community. The restaurants and retail will come as a result of people moving in or doing shopping.� Heuts said the LCEDC will assist retailers in settling, but it is more difficult to craft incentives for such businesses. Retailers and restaurant chains typically research a potential location and their research will either point to starting a location or not. Industrial manufacturers tend to have more options for where they can settle, making incentives more of a necessity, Heuts said.

fund improvements at Lee County High. Lee County Manager John Crumpton said the board needs to make a speedy decision in order for work to be completed in the summer months before students return in the fall. “This was a tight timetable to get it all done,� Crumpton said Monday. Some commissioners were soured by the additional cost of the bid on top of initial estimates, but others said it was merely a byproduct of improving times for contractors. “An estimate doesn’t mean a hill of beans,� said Commissioner James Kelly,

Commissioner Amy Dalrymple said voters’ support of the sales tax last fall is an indicator of their where they stand on improvements at the school. “Our board has to respect the voters and what they chose,� Dalrymple said.

Right now, “I don’t think it’s fair to have an assistant in one classroom and not in the next,� she said. Atkins also would like to see changes made to the policy that allows high school students to opt out of exams. She understands that some students may not be good at taking tests, but they should be allowed to work toward extra credit, not be exempt from an exam. “I think taking exams away just to help our graduation rate is not a good idea in my opinion,� she said. Atkins wasn’t neces-

sarily bothered by the two Saturday school days used this past winter, but understands many parents were and thinks the board should have listened to their concerns. “They need to listen instead of just saying, this is the best way. If people are upset about it, I don’t think it’s a good policy,� she said. She and her husband would like their daughters Clarice, 6, and Evelyn, 4, to continue in public school if it works for them. If they aren’t happy with the public education, they are able to put their children in private school. But not all parents have that option, Atkins said. “That was another motivator for me. The school system should be great for all,� she said.

PERDUEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S STATE BUDGET

Lawmaker: Expect $1B in cuts

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Gov. Beverly Perdueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending proposal for next year likely will contain aggressive efforts to improve North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public education and mental health systems as well as spending cuts of around $1 billion to help pay for them, legislative budgetwriters said Monday. Perdue, who is scheduled Tuesday to propose adjustments to the $19.6 billion budget already approved last summer and set to begin July 1, also wants changes to the personal care services program that has struggled with Medicaid overspending, according to a lawmaker who got a preview last week from Perdue and her staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got an ambitious program,â&#x20AC;? said Rep. Mickey Michaux, D-Durham, senior co-chairman of the House Appropria-

enough of that already.â&#x20AC;? Unions have long pushed to allow card check, fearing that businesses can abuse secret ballot elections and tilt the scales against workers. Card check would allow workers to form a union by signing cards as an alternative to an election. Asked in an AP interview whether he would support that, Cunningham said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I support elections. I think that what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re about to see emerge from the Senate, if anything, protects elections as the sole way for there to be unions created. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that I would support.â&#x20AC;? Pressed on whether he would push to allow card check, Cunningham responded: â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, no, not the card check.â&#x20AC;? Later asked to clarify, Cunningham said he supports a compromise idea that would allow workers to use card check as a way to trigger an immediate secret-ballot election â&#x20AC;&#x201D; similar to what is allowed today. He said the idea of using card check as an alternative to elections is likely not going to pass in the U.S. Senate.

State Briefs

tions Committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to see how ambition works out.â&#x20AC;? Michaux and a Senate budget-writer interviewed Monday declined to discuss specifics about the health or education initiatives. The Democratic governor hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provided many hints publicly about what she wants lawmakers to approve during this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s session save for a $17 million small business assistance package and ethics reforms. But Perdue has said her spending plan would include efforts to expand her â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ready Set Go!â&#x20AC;? program designed to ensure every child must graduate from high school with the skills to succeed in a career or attend a community college, university or technical training. Perdue spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson con-

firmed last week the budget proposal would have money to pay for hand-held devices teachers can use to make real-time diagnostic assessments of students to ensure they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall behind their classmates. Each device costs about $300, Pearson said. Perdue said in January she would shift money away from outdated or unnecessary state programs to find additional cash. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bulk of the budget will be about trimming state government (and) finding ways to make state government leaner,â&#x20AC;? Pearson said Monday. Perdue also said in March she wanted to repay North Carolina state workers their lost wages for taking away 0.5 percent of their salaries last year to close a budget shortfall, at a cost of $65 million.

Slaying suspect makes first court appearance

Teamsters now split on Democratic Senate race

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The suspect in the death of a North Carolina school board member has made his first appearance in court. Jason Keith Williford appeared briefly in a Wake County courtroom on Monday. The court appointed two lawyers to prepare his defense. The 30-year-old Raleigh man is charged with first-degree rape and murder in the death of 62-year-old Kathy Taft. Taft, who was from Greenville, died three days after being found badly beaten at the home of a friend. Members of Taftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family attended the court proceeding, but did not speak to the media. Williford is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on May 10. He is being held without bond. Calls to his lawyers were not immediately returned Monday.

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Charlotte branch of the Teamsters union broke with its leadership Monday on a U.S. Senate endorsement, saying a candidate went back on his commitment to a pro-labor proposal. Teamsters Local 71 said it is endorsing Secretary of State Elaine Marshall for the May 4 Democratic primary. The local president, Ted Russell, said his members were concerned after candidate Cal Cunninghamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments in an interview with The Associated Press that he would not pursue a so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;card checkâ&#x20AC;? plan to make it easier for unions to organize. Russell said he believed Cunningham, who won the endorsement of Teamsters leadership, recanted on a commitment to the idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need that,â&#x20AC;? said Russell, whose unit has about 3,800 members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see

death of UNC student president By MIKE BAKER Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — The man accused of killing a University of North Carolina student body president found shot to death in the middle of a street two years ago pleaded guilty Monday to federal crimes, avoiding the death penalty. Demario Atwater, 23, pleaded guilty to several charges, including carjacking resulting in death and kidnapping. Prosecutors agreed to drop their plan to pursue the death penalty and Atwater agreed to a life sentence. Eve Carson, 22, of Athens, Ga., was found shot to death in the middle of a Chapel Hill street in March 2008. She had been shot five times, including once in the head with a 12-gauge shotgun. “While we deplore the evil and negligence that led to Eve’s death, we agree with the U.S. attorney’s decision to accept the plea agreement,” Carson’s parents said in a statement released by prosecutors Monday. Atwater is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 23, and he still faces a murder charge in state court along with Laurence Lovette, who was only 17 at the time of the killing and is ineligible for the death penalty. Lovette does not face federal charges. Authorities believe Atwater and Lovette kidnapped Carson from outside her Chapel Hill home

Demario Atwater arrives in Wake County court in Raleigh in 2008. just before 4 a.m., stole her sport utility vehicle and took her to several ATMs, eventually withdrawing $1,400. Carson’s killing shocked the university community in Chapel Hill, outraged state lawmakers and highlighted problems within North Carolina’s probation and parole system. A state investigation found that Atwater was never placed under intensive probation — which can include mandatory curfews, weekly contact and warrantless searches — despite two court orders to do so, the first dating to a February 2005 conviction on a pair of felony charges. When Atwater later told officials he was living in Durham, Wake County probation officers didn’t transfer his case there for more than two years. Lovette pleaded guilty to misdemeanor larceny and breaking and entering just two months before Carson’s death and received a two-year suspended sentence. He was then assigned to a Durham probation officer who said she was handling more than 120 cases even through she had yet to complete a basic training course. In the six weeks that followed, authorities in Durham arrested Lovette several times and charged him with nine crimes, including burglary, car theft, breaking and entering, and resisting arrest. He was released after each arrest. U.S. Attorney Anna Mills Wagoner said Monday that the plea avoids the uncertainty and pain of a drawn-out trial and endless appeals. “A life sentence in the federal criminal justice system means just that: life without the possibility of parole or early release,” Wagoner said in a statement. Federal executions are rare. Only three people, including Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, have been put to death by the federal government since it resumed executions in 2001 after a 38-year hiatus.

OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING

NATION BRIEFS

Families, colleagues marks 15 years By TIM TALLEY Associated Press Writer

OKLAHOMA CITY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been 15 years since a terroristâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bomb destroyed the Oklahoma City federal building, killing 168 people and injuring more than 600 others. The passage of time hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made mourning any easier for many victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; family members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Time heals nothing,â&#x20AC;? said Debi Burkett Moore, whose brother, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development worker David Burkett, was killed. She and other family members placed flowers on an empty chair meant to honor her brother thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s among a field of chairs at the Oklahoma City National Memorial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes it a little more bearable, but it heals nothing,â&#x20AC;? Moore said. About 2,000 people gathered at the memorial Monday to honor those killed and injured in the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. At the time, it was the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil. For many in attendance, a visit to the memorial is an annual rite â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a way to pause and remember a loved one, former colleague, friend or neighbor who died in the attack.

Charlie Hanger, Noble County Sheriff, speaks during the memorial ceremony for the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing Monday in Oklahoma City. Hangar, is the Okahoma Highway Patrol trooper who stopped bomber Timothy McVeigh on the day of the blast because his 1977 Mercury Marquis did not have a license plate. Kathryn Burkett, the mother of David Burkett, said she grows sadder by his absence with each passing year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why it is sadder? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why,â&#x20AC;? Burkett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just live with it.â&#x20AC;? Other victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; family members said they, too, still feel a deep sense of grief 15 years after the bombing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it here every year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just too hard. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just like yesterday,â&#x20AC;? said Cornelius Lewis III, who wore a T-shirt and medallion that bore the portrait and nickname, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Puddin,â&#x20AC;? of his late sister, Social Security Administration employee Charlotte

Thomas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 15 years, I would never miss it,â&#x20AC;? said her mother, Bettie Lewis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is part of our lives. I would never miss it.â&#x20AC;? Another of Thomasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; brothers, Guy Lewis, said his sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life will never be forgotten thanks to new curriculum guidelines for Oklahoma students that mandate instruction about the Oklahoma City bombing and its aftermath. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be in the history books. Her memory is going to live forever,â&#x20AC;? he said. Vickie Lykins and her sister, Angela Richerson, placed a rose, an American flag and a colorful purple

ribbon on the chair honoring their mother, Norma â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jeanâ&#x20AC;? Johnson, a former Defense Security Service worker who was killed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite color,â&#x20AC;? Lykins said as she solemnly secured the ribbon to the chair. Lykins said she misses her mother â&#x20AC;&#x153;very muchâ&#x20AC;? but preferred to keep her feelings about the bombing anniversary and her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death to herself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of things we could say. But we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? she said. During a ceremony for bombing victims and survivors, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spirit in the wake of the tragedy served as an example to the nation. Napolitano also said the bombing anniversary was a reminder of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the continued need for vigilance against the violent ideologies that led to this attack, so that we can recognize their signs in our communities and stand together to defeat them.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot put a glass dome over our country. We cannot guarantee there will not be another attack. No one can,â&#x20AC;? Napolitano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we are a strong and resilient country. And we can resolve that even a successful attack will not defeat our way of life.â&#x20AC;?

Gun rights advocates carry guns, rifles at rally ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Carrying loaded pistols and unloaded rifles, dozens of gun-rights activists got as close as they could Monday to the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital while still bearing arms and delivered what they said was a simple message: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tread on me. Hundreds of like-minded but unarmed counterparts carried out a separate rally in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital. The gun-carrying protesters in Virginia rallied on national park land, which is legal thanks to a new law signed by President Barack Obama that allows guns in national parks. Organizers said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first armed rally in a national park since the law passed. The District of Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strict gun laws, however, generally make it illegal to carry a handgun, so rally participants there were unarmed. Daniel Almond, who organized the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Restore the Constitutionâ&#x20AC;? rally in Virginia, said he wanted to convene in a place where â&#x20AC;&#x153;we can exercise our rights.â&#x20AC;? He pointed in the direction of Washington and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over there, the Constitution is being violated in that we cannot bear arms.â&#x20AC;?

text messages they sent on their employersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; account. Several justices said Monday that the employer, the Ontario, Calif., police department, acted reasonably in monitoring the text messages in view of its written policy warning employees they have no guarantee of privacy in the use of office computer and electronics equipment. Justice Stephen Breyer said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see â&#x20AC;&#x153;anything, quite honestly, unreasonable about that.â&#x20AC;?

Democrats use Goldman fraud suit to push regulations WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A fraud lawsuit against Goldman Sachs became a political weapon for Democrats Monday as they fought for Republican support for a sweeping financial regulatory bill. Republicans remained unswayed in opposition. Democrats argued that the legislation, aimed at avoiding a recurrence of the 2008 financial crisis, would help prevent financial firms from misleading investors â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the charge made by the Securities and Exchange commission in a lawsuit against Goldman on Friday. But the legislation would have only an indirect affect, at best, on such activities. The proposed overhaul would change the way investors buy and sell derivatives â&#x20AC;&#x201D; complex products whose values are based on the values of other investments. At the heart of the Goldman charges were deals involving numerous derivatives.

Toytota hurries to recall Lexus SUVs, pay record fine WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Toyota hurriedly ordered recalls of nearly 10,000 Lexus SUVs for possible rollover dangers Monday and agreed to a record $16.4 million fine for a slow response in its broader earlier recall, scrambling to fix safety worries that threaten the Japanese auto giantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation. The fine, the maximum under law, could hurt Toyota Motor Corp.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image more than its financial bottom line: The penalty is the equivalent of a little more than $2 for every vehicle the company sold around the globe in 2009. And analysts said it would have little impact on dozens of private lawsuits, which have been combined before a federal judge in Santa Ana, Calif. Addressing new safety concerns, Toyota said it would recall all 9,400 of the 2010 Lexus GX 460s that went on sale in late December â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 5,600 that have been sold and 3,800 still at dealers or elsewhere in the distribution pipeline.

2 top al-Qaida leaders killed in US-Iraqi raid

BAGHDAD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The U.S. and Iraq claimed a major victory against al-Qaida on Monday, saying their forces killed the terror groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two top figures in this country in an air and ground assault on their safehouse near Saddam Husseinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hometown. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki announced the killings of Abu Omar al-Bagh-

Still, some analysts contend, the group was far stronger then and would likely have a harder time now replenishing its leadership and sticking to a timetable of attacks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The death of these terrorists is potentially the most significant blow to al-Qaida in Iraq since the beginning of the insurgency,â&#x20AC;?

DURHAM — Duke’s Kyle Singler, the Most Outstanding Player at the Final Four, will return to school for his senior season. Singler announced his decision Monday night. He said in a statement that he didn’t want to miss out on all the great things to come in his senior season. Singler averaged 17.7 points and 7.0 rebounds while leading Duke to a 35-5 record and the school’s fourth national championship.

On the Pitch

SANFORD — It was a tale of two halves. The Lee Christian girls’ soccer team dominated the first half against the in-town rival Grace Christian. However, the Crusaders won the half that mattered most. Amanda Norris scored two of Grace Christian’s three goals in the second half to lift the Crusaders to a 3-1 victory over the Falcons. The goals give Norris 13 on the season, which is currently tied for 10th in the state. “This was a big win for us,” said Grace Christian head coach

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Denny Hamlin went ahead in the closing 12-lap shootout for a victory at Texas Motor Speedway on Monday, holding off Jimmie Johnson at the end to win another rain-delayed race. Hamlin won for the second time in three races, both victories coming in races that were postponed by rain before being run on the first day of the week. It was the 10th career NASCAR Sprint Cup victory for Hamlin, who won a Monday race at Martinsville three weeks ago, then had surgery two days after for a torn ACL in his left knee. He ran every lap at Phoenix last week, and was still hurting in Texas. “I’m trying to get it straight right now,” said Hamlin, who gingerly climbed out of the car in Victory Lane. “I did it for the long run. Even though it was going to take some sacrifice, I knew once I came back I was going to be stronger.” Hamlin started 29th in his No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota and never led until that final run, set up after a spectacular nine-car crash involving polesitter Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon, who had led a racehigh 124 laps and was trying to get back to the front. On the first lap after a restart with 18 laps left — following yellow-flag stops when Stewart was among the drivers who took only two tires and Gordon took four — they ended up three-wide with Gordon in the middle and Johnson on the inside coming out of Turn 4.

NBA PLAYOFFS

Wallace says Bobcats can’t let Howard be the ‘bully’ in series By ANTONIO GONZALEZ Associated Press Writer

ORLANDO, Fla. — Gerald Wallace spoke with a bit of feistiness and flavor Monday, fed up with the notion his Charlotte Bobcats might be intimidated by Dwight Howard’s presence in the paint. So this time Wallace sent an ever-so small shot back. “We’re not going to just let him think he’s the bully or that he’s a factor up under the basket,” Wallace said, “because he’s not.” Say this about the Bobcats: They still have some fight. Their offensive efficiency was a tale of two halves in their Game 1 loss to the Orlando Magic on Sunday. Charlotte turned into a perimeter shooting team when Howard swatted eight shots in the first — nine for the game — and

was pushed out of the paint. The Bobcats went down by 22 points, and sputtered until the reigning defensive player of the year hit foul trouble in the third quarter. To have any chance to even the best-of-seven series when it resumes Wednesday in Orlando, they know they have to score more around the rim. Even if that means on Howard. “He’s a shot blocker, and we’re a team that attacks the rim,” Wallace said. “You put those two together, and somebody has to win.” Score the first round for Orlando. But the Bobcats believe they have more than a puncher’s chance. Their attacking style in the

The Falcons (2-12-1, 1-8-1) got on the board first in the first half. Samantha Gautier scored on an assist from Whitney Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Quinn in the 39th minute. The goal gave the Falcons a 1-0 lead at the half. At the half, Dickens stressed to his team the importance of coming out in the second half and taking control of the match. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told them that this was pretty much their season,â&#x20AC;? said Dickens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed this win to help us climb the ladder as far as playoff seedings are concerned. We needed to play well in the second half so we could stay in the hunt for a decent seeding and I think we did that. We gave up that late goal in the first half but really responded well.â&#x20AC;?

Continued from Page 1B

second half nearly led them to an upset of the second-seeded and defending Eastern Conference champion Magic. Charlotte closed the gap to five points in the final minutes, driving to the basket with more pop that forced Howard into foul trouble. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why he had a lot of blocks, because we were taking it in there,â&#x20AC;? Bobcats point guard Raymond Felton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be intimated that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to block our shots. We got him in foul trouble. He had nine blocks, but he also almost fouled out.â&#x20AC;? Monday also offered the Bobcats hope they could make a series turnaround. The nervousness players said they had in the franchiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first-ever playoff game was washed away, and playful joking and trick shots were back after practice. Felton, for instance, said the â&#x20AC;&#x153;chillsâ&#x20AC;? he felt before Game 1 were gone. Confidence that they were close started to take shape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To know that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to win this series, I think we got a chance. I like our chances. Granted, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a great team. But so are we,â&#x20AC;? Felton said. Perhaps the best news of the day for Charlotte came with an MRI on Stephen Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hyperextended left knee that showed a small bone bruise but no structural damage. The Bobcats swingman sat out practice and had an ice wrap around his knee. He walked with a slight limp but expects to start in Game 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real sore,â&#x20AC;? Jackson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way sorer than it was yesterday. But hopefully come Wednesday, the little swelling it has will go down.â&#x20AC;? Or as Bobcats coach Larry Brown put it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if the MRI said he had an ACL (tear), heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d

The Sanford Herald / Tuesday, April 20, 2010 / 3B The Crusaders (6-8-1, 4-6-1) mustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten Dickensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; message. Three minutes into the second half, Norris scored her first goal on an assist from Taylor Hilliard, which tied things up at 1. In the 59th minute, Hilliard scored off a pass from Medley Davis, which broke the tie and gave the Crusaders their first lead. Hilliard would find Norris again two minutes later for her second goal of the match. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taylor played a great game with a goal and two assists,â&#x20AC;? said Dickens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been kind of struggling lately and it was good to see Taylor come out and play like sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capable of. Amanda was also huge for us. This is a big win for us.â&#x20AC;? The win moves the Crusaders into a three-way tie with Salem Baptist and Gospel Light for fourth place in the NCCSA 3-A West Conference. The Crusaders play anyway.â&#x20AC;? Now if only the entire team would play so fearless. Charlotteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secondhalf scrappiness at least provided them with some confidence that the series might not be so lopsided. The pushing and pulling on Howard kept the All-Star center grounded offensively, holding him to five points and seven rebounds. While Orlandoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s center was frustrated offensively and played only 27 minutes because of foul trouble, his defense

can take sole possession of fourth place if Gospel Light loses to Alamance Christian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just need some things to go our way,â&#x20AC;? said Dickens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if we can get a decent seed in the playoffs, we can do pretty well. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the talent to go pretty far, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just about playing the right way.â&#x20AC;? Lee Christian will travel to Gospel Light on Thursday and will wrap up conference play against Salem Baptist on Friday in Sanford. Falcons head coach Eric Davidson was disappointed in the final outcome of the match but was pleased with how the Falcons played in the first half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played very well in the first half and controlled much of the match,â&#x20AC;? said Davidson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything for them in the second half.â&#x20AC;?

was enough of a force for Brown to call him the â&#x20AC;&#x153;most valuable playerâ&#x20AC;? of the game afterward. The Bobcatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; approach is simple: drive at Howard even harder in Game 2, and live with the results. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to keep going at him, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to keep attacking,â&#x20AC;? Wallace said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If he ends up with 20 blocks, he ends up with 20 blocks. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to have to work for his 20 blocks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anybody on this team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s afraid to attack the basket.â&#x20AC;?

Rays complete sweep of stumbling Red Sox BOSTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; B.J. Upton and the Tampa Bay Rays played the bumbling Boston Red Sox at the perfect time. Upton capped a fiverun third inning with a three-run homer and Tampa Bay completed a four-game sweep of the Red Sox with an 8-2 victory Monday in the annual Patriots Day game. The Rays won their seventh in a row, all on the road, and matched the team record for the longest winning streak away from Tropicana Field in one season. Tampa Bay (10-3) completed its first sweep at Fenway Park in a series of three or more games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got 5 1/2 more months of baseball to play, so a lot can happen in between that time. We just got to keep doing the things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing, keep our head straight, do a lot of little things right and I think the rest will take care of itself,â&#x20AC;? Upton said. Playing on the morning of the Boston Marathon, the Red Sox lost their sixth straight at home, their longest losing streak at Fenway since a 12-game skid in 1994. Boston (4-9)

DEAR ABBY

BRIDGE HAND

Teenager’s puppy love delivers a painful bite DEAR ABBY: I’m 13, and my “first kiss” just broke up with me. My dad says it’s just puppy love, which may be true, but I have a feeling that I need to be with him. What hurts even more is he had a new girlfriend the next day. I have tried moving on, but I don’t think I want to. I want to try to get back with him, but I don’t know how. Can you help me? — ACHING HEART IN IOWA

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: This is a year of promise and opportunities that is based on what you do and how much you offer. Explore new avenues and travel. A change of heart regarding your work, future and the people in your life can be expected. It’s time to pursue your own personal and professional dreams. Your numbers are 4, 11, 15, 24, 29, 35, 42 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Refrain from spreading yourself too thin. You may think you can conquer the world but you need more time in order to do a good job. Focus on what’s important and keep a level head. 2 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Home, family and friends should be your focus but, be aware that someone you live with may not be happy sharing your time with others. Plan a vacation or trip that allows you to nurture important relationships. 4 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t take chances. Be specific and ask the right questions if you don’t want to be left out or misguided. Stick close to home and take care of personal business. Expect a change and be prepared to reconstruct your plans. 3 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): Lend a helping hand. The people you encounter while offering your services will enhance your life in many ways. You can make a professional change that will give you greater responsibility and more perks. 3 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Clear up any matters you have with institutions or government agencies. The less you leave dangling, the easier it will be to move forward and get a foothold on your future. You can make an offer or negotiate a contract. 3 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Let everyone know what you are up to and you will get all the help you need to not only reach your goals but surpass them. Doors are opening,

WORD JUMBLE

partnerships are brewing and opportunities to make some major changes to your life are apparent. Love and romance are in a high cycle. 4 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Avoid emotional encounters. Focus on money, financing and making your space at home comfortable and affordable. Make whatever transitions necessary to lighten your responsibilities and ease your stress. 2 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t waste time on people or projects that don’t count. Don’t be afraid to change your plans midstream if it works for you. A positive experience will brighten your attitude and change your world. 5 stars SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Forge ahead with plans to alter your surroundings or make them more conducive to reaching your goals. A little tender, loving care put into your home, family and future will be needed if you don’t want to face changes brought on by someone else. Procrastination will be what gets you into trouble. 3 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Concentrate on financial and family matters putting time, energy and thought into your domestic scene. Talks will lead to great ideas. Love will be enhanced as you work collectively toward a better future. 3 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may not want to listen to advice being offered but you should. Acting professionally or financially without a plan will increase the chances of someone outmaneuvering you. Sign up for anything that can help you better your skills and your chance to get ahead. 3 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You may feel like bringing about change but incorporating the old with the new will make more sense and bring a better return. Pull out your old ideas and plans and give them a new angle. An old relationship may be a key factor. 5 stars

DEAR ACHING HEART: If your “first kiss” broke up with you and had a new girlfriend the next day, what it shows about him is that he has a short attention span. I know you would like to get him back, but the word from here is: Don’t waste your time. While the end of a romance is painful, chalk it up to experience and a part of growing up. There is no growth without a little pain; and it only hurts for a little while. Trust me on that. Now a little advice woman-towoman: Once it’s over, all the note writing, phoning or conniving will not help your cause. Accept that it’s time to forget him. The longer you linger, the more foolish you will appear. So stand up straight, smile and move on. There are better days — and better boys — ahead. o DEAR ABBY: Would you please print this to educate your readers about something I witness every summer — parents encouraging

little kids to take native wildlife. I watched a 6-year-old girl show off the two palm-sized baby turtles her dad had “given” her from the lake, and put them into a plastic container to take home. Abby, they were snapping turtles! Mom won’t be pleased when those “pets” snap a finger. Then there was the mom who thought it would be fun for her 7year-old boy to play with a few frogs in their dry, dense, sun-drenched backyard. Within an hour, the amphibians had escaped and, best guess is, they died and became dehydrated, sun-dried critters or dog food. Abby, not only is it illegal to take wildlife on a whim, but it’s also selfish. At a time when we’re already damaging our planet for our recreational pastimes, we need to be teaching our kids that living beings are not toys, but rather a valuable part of natural ecosystems. It’s so much more fun to observe and learn

DEAR WILDLIFE PRESERVER: Well said. Children — and too many adults — act on impulse when they pick wild plants and flowers, or decide to “adopt” little feral creatures that are destined to die when taken from their natural habitat. Earth Day is April 22 — that’s Thursday — and it offers a chance for all of us to do something positive for the planet. Many parents use it as an opportunity to bond with their children, and some schools offer credit to students who participate. (Hint, hint.) o DEAR ABBY: How do you attract single women while on a budget? — GARY IN LONGWOOD, FLA. DEAR GARY: Matinees cost less for admission than late shows, and if there are any museums that are not too far away, check out free museum days. A picnic in the park or a day at the beach doesn’t cost a lot — and neither do outdoor activities such as biking or hiking. You really don’t have to have a lot of money to attract a nice woman. And anyone who makes you feel otherwise is someone you should run from.

ODDS AND ENDS Meatball crowned Beautiful Bulldog at Iowa pageant DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Dozens of slobbering bulldogs dressed in everything from tuxedos to tutus shuffled onto the blue carpet Monday to show their stuff. None were a match for Meatball, a brown and white pup crowned the winner of the 31st annual Beautiful Bulldog pageant in downtown Des Moines. Meatball beat out 49 tail-wagging wannabes who came from as far away as South Carolina to compete in the event and serve as the official mascot for the 101st annual Drake Relays track and field event. I’m speechless,” said Meatball’s coowner, Ryan Anderson of Des Moines. “He’s got a lot of character to him. He’s got a lot of personality and he likes playing with everyone else.” As winner, Meatball received a key to the city, a royal cape and crown. He will make numerous public appearances at Drake Relays events, which continue through Saturday. Meatball’s secret weapon - besides a perfectly wrinkled face and a proud potbelly- were the handful of supporters wearing blue “Team Meatball” T-shirts and cheering on the charismatic showman in his rookie appearance. Meatball was clad in a simple blue Drake University shirt, but others sported more outrageous outfits. One dog was dressed in pompoms, another wore a Superman cape and there were all kinds of pink. One pup, Butch from Eden Prairie, Minn., wore a doggy-sized version of

The right kind of bloodshot eyes, like on a Friday night after you’ve been out socializing,” said Dolph Pulliam, the master of ceremonies for the event. “He’s got to have that drooling look on his face, and then a little slobber coming down. That is the most beautiful bulldog to me in the whole wide world.”

Mother of Wis. bride delivers passer-by’s baby MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Wisconsin woman who went into labor on the way to a hospital got some help from the mother of a bride at a nearby wedding party. Ben Sherwood of New Berlin was driving his wife Kimberly to the hospital Saturday when she told him they wouldn’t make it. They saw a police officer by the Milwaukee Art Museum and flagged him down. Ben Sherwood tells WTMJ the officer had the same frightened look he had. So Ben turned to a nearby wedding party and starting yelling for a doctor. A woman in a peach dress and high heels ran over. It was Annette Soborowicz, an emergency-room nurse. A few pushes later and Soborowicz was holding little Lincoln Sherwood. Soborowicz says it was an amazing day - the Sherwoods had a son and she gained a wonderful son-in-law.

God cares about every detail Q: I’ve wasted most of my life — drugs, alcohol, jail, pregnant at 17, you name it. But now I’ve given my life to Jesus and that’s all behind me. But I’ve still got bad health and a police record from my past, so I can’t get a decent job. Will God do something about these, or is it asking too much? — D.J. A: No, it’s not asking too much for God to help you with these problems. God loves you, and He is concerned about every detail of your life. The Bible says, “Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall” (Psalm 55:22). Does this mean all our problems vanish if we turn them over to God? I wish I could say “Yes” — but in all honesty, I can’t. Sometimes the problems we’ve created for ourselves stay with us, even when God has forgiven them. Decisions have consequences — and when we make bad decisions, the consequences also are bad. The Bible warns, “A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature... will reap destruction” (Galatians 6:7-8). Ask God to give you wisdom to deal with your problems. He may take some of them away — but even if He doesn’t, He wants to help you overcome them. If you need more education, for example, ask Him to open that door. Most of all, take steps to strengthen your faith — through prayer, reading God’s Word, and fellowship with other believers in a church which is focused on Christ. Don’t get discouraged, but remember Jesus’ promise: “I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
