SANFORD — The Lee County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Sanford couple Sunday following an investigation into the long-running molestation of an 11-year-old child. Investigators arrested 44year-old Aaron Scott Earnshaw of 1832 Rice Road in Sanford for allegedly molesting the child over a five- to sixyear period. The child’s mother, 45-year-old Earnshaw Kathleen Mary Morin, was involved in a live-in relationship with Earnshaw and was arrested as well. The Sheriff’s Office Morin was notified of a reported sexual assault Friday when the child stayed over at another individual’s house for the weekend, said Capt. Jeff Johnson. Earnshaw is charged with a first-degree sexual offense, attempted sex offense by a parental role and taking indecent liberties with a child. Morin faces charges of misdemeanor child abuse stemming from allegations that she

SANFORD – It’s likely the only event in Sanford that uses more “clay” than the pottery festival, and it’s certainly the only one that draws hundreds from around the world each year to the area. The 10th annual Southern Side-by-Side Spring Classic at Deep River Sporting Clays near Moncure begins Friday and culminates with the championship main event Sunday. Last year, the competition drew 1,400 competitors and 1,900 total through the game, according to DRSC owner Bill Kempffer, and this weekend, he expects the crowds to equal or top that number. “We’ll have more exhibitors than we’ve ever had,” said Kempffer, who was busy Tuesday getting the fa-

Sponsored each year by Atkin, Grant and Lang, the London-based worldreknowned gun and rifle makers, the Spring Classic draws an impressive crowd of European shooters each year because, as Kempffer puts it, “they love the Southern hospitality.” “The main reason they come is because it’s a very American event,” he said.

“We celebrate tradition here, and they love being a part of it. Many stay in hotels in Sanford, Apex or Cary … and those that stay in Sanford tell me they love it. The Europeans refer to Sanford as a very warm and friendly ‘village.’”

SANFORD — John Bonardi Jr. wants to make sure the Lee County Board of Education knows who has to eat the school lunch. When his son Caleb, a junior at Southern Lee High School, learned of his dad’s interest in running for school board again, he told Bonardi to do something about the lunches. Bonardi explained to his son that the lunches have to follow nutritional standards set by those at the state and federal level, and Caleb replied, “Yeah, but they don’t have to eat it!” Bonardi agreed, and has made that mindset part of his campaign for a seat on the board.

Western Harnett teen killed near Lillington

LILLINGTON — A Spring Lake teen is dead following a car crash in western Harnett County Monday afternoon, the N.C. Highway Patrol said. Elizabeth Ann Harris, 16, of the Anderson Creek community in Spring Lake, died after losing control in a curve on Doc’s Road near Lillington, striking a van and overturning, said First Sgt. Tim Baldwin of the Highway Patrol. Harris, who was wearing her seat belt, died instantly Harris from the impact despite the deployment of her vehicle’s airbags, Baldwin said. “It was unsurvivable, the impact was so tremendous,� he said. “... It just crushed her vehicle.� Baldwin said Harris, a student at Western Harnett High School, had just left school and was traveling 64 mph in a 55 mph zone. He said her car wheels dipped off the right side of the road and she overcorrected, swerving to the left of the center line and into the path of a van. Harris was driving a fourdoor 2008 Ford car, and the other driver, 45-year-old Terry Andrew Keith of Cameron, was traveling in a full-size Chevrolet van. Keith was treated and released shortly afterwards from Central Carolina Hospital in Sanford. Harris’ body was taken to Betsy Johnson Regional Hospital in Dunn. Baldwin said Harris had stopped to visit her mother, a teacher at Western Harnett Middle School, just before the accident and her mother was traveling just minutes behind her on Doc’s Road. He said Harris’ mother drove up on the scene of the crash. — By Billy Ball

Sharpe Store Music hosts first meeting

SILER CITY — Sharpe Store Music, a 12 month-old non profit, will celebrate its first annual meeting Wednesday, April 28 at 7 p.m. in a dining room at Dry Dock Seafood Restaurant in Siler City. The

organization was formed to promote old time string music and to honor the memory of store owner Reno Sharpe. For more than 10 years, musicians have played Bluegrass music on the third Saturday of each month and for fewer years they have played Gospel music on the first Saturdays with open jam sessions open to all acoustic musicians. During its first year, the organization has built a stage on the store grounds, began music lessons in February to 28 students in beginning guitar, banjo and fiddle, and accomplished several renovation projects on buildings on the grounds. In addition, to the bands and annual celebration in August, the group will hold a graduation ceremony for the students followed by concerts by two wellknown bluegrass bands May 15 following the regular jam session at the store. Food will be available from a variety of vendors on site. Additional music lessons are planned for a short summer session and a 12-week fall session will start after the school year begins with both advanced and beginning lessons planned.

Boys & Girls ask council for $50K By BILLY BALL bball@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — The local Boys & Girls Club may be in trouble, but Sanford city officials are reluctant to come to the rescue. The Sanford City Council tabled a request Tuesday to allot $50,000 to the budget-wracked Boys & Girls Clubs of Sanford and Lee County, citing concerns about the precedent that would be set if government officials begin picking up the tab for struggling nonprofits. “I don’t think we can fund all nonprofits because that’s a quagmire of great people looking to do great things,� said Councilman Leopold Cohen. “But I don’t think this is what this council is

Board seeks input on relocation of historic homes PITTSBORO—Chatham County has invited public comment through May 15 on the potential relocation of three historic houses in Pittsboro. The county will have to remove the homes due to the construction of the new Judicial Center. The USDA’s Rural Development is considering a county application for funding to help cover some costs of the Judicial Center and requires the county to get public input on the project’s impact on these historic properties since they are located in the Pittsboro Historic District. To reduce the potential impact on the Historic District, Chatham County will work with the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources and the State Historic Preservation Office to ensure that any move of the homes is within the requirements of the Secretary of the Interior’s standards. Final plans and specifications for the three homes will be submitted to the State Historic Preservation Office for review and approval.

involved in the Boys & Girls Clubs wouldn’t be the first time Sanford government has gotten involved with local nonprofits. Councilman Samuel Gaskins pointed out the city has given to the Lee County Arts Council and taken part in fundraising drives for the Sanford Railroad House and the Temple Theatre. Gaskins urged the council to develop a policy for helping nonprofits that is “pro-active� in increasing local tourism and quality of life activities. “We need to treat all nonprofits equally or clearly differentiate between all the nonprofits,� he said. No officials from the

Boys & Girls Clubs were on hand at Tuesday’s meeting, and city officials didn’t give a date on when they would take up the issue again. “I think it’s a wonderful organization,� Cohen said. “I wish we could fund the whole budget.� Sanford City Manager Hal Hegwer suggested officials research how other government entities handle similar scenarios and revisit the topic at a later meeting. Hegwer said city officials have had their own troubles balancing the budget this year and will continue to keep an ear on how the N.C. General Assembly’s 2010-2011 spending plan will affect local resources.

here to do.� The Boys & Girls Clubs’ financial struggles, like many nonprofits, are driven by cash-strapped donors’ inability to give at this time. City officials say they were recently asked to chip in. Councilman Charles Taylor lauded the group for its contribution to the community, but bemoaned that the Boys & Girls Clubs’ financial disarray puts Sanford leaders in a “quandary.� “I’m not sure we’re in the nonprofit business,� Taylor said, adding the city faces financial pressure to use taxpayer dollars wisely at a time when the cost of operations is on the rise. Despite council members’ reservations, getting

PITTSBORO — The Chatham County Board of Commissioners reviewed a proposal for the formation of a task force to study and make recommendations to the commissioners about the use of the Historic Courthouse once it is reconstructed. The commissioners also discussed plans and potential funding sources to document the rebuilding process. Warren Miller from Fountainworks presented a draft plan that would include a task force with 19 voting members and one non-voting county commissioner. Commissioners will make the task force appointments on May 17 so that the work can begin quickly. The task force will be charged with identifying multi-purpose functions for the courthouse and making recommendations to the Board of Commissioners on the optimum combination of these uses.

“A broad range of ideas and community input is needed,� said Board Chair Sally Kost. “Although the fire was a tragedy for this community, we need to look at the rebuilding process as an opportunity.� For the other 10 members, the commissioners are seeking geographic representation of the county and members to represent the interests of tourism, the arts, youth, architecture/building trades and public safety/ fire. The task force will do its work from May through August 2010. The process will provide opportunities for broader citizen input, including several community forums . Anyone interested in serving on the task force representing the arts community, youth, architects/building trades, tourism, public safety/fire or one of the five general seats should submit an application to serve by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 7.

Etheridge, Price introduce Congressional Resolution honoring courthouse WASHINGTON — Representatives Bob Etheridge (D-Lillington) and David Price (D-Durham) introduced a resolution supported by the entire North Carolina delegation Thursday honoring the historical and community significance of the Chatham County Courthouse. Etheridge and Price have each visited the site of the courthouse ruins and reached out to County officials to pledge federal support for restoration efforts. At approximately 4:15 p.m. on March 25, 2010, the Chatham County Courthouse was partially destroyed by fire. Firefighters and emergency responders arrived at the scene and fought courageously and bravely to save the structure and historic archives for the people of Chatham County. The building had stood since 1881 and had a central role in the local pride and independence felt by all Chatham residents. “The Chatham County Courthouse is a beloved and adored structure in my district because it was more than a place to attend court or take care of official business, it was a gathering place and a symbol of community among neighbors,� Etheridge said. “The work to salvage archives and rebuild will involve a lot of effort by many people and my office is prepared to assist the people of Chatham County in any way possible.� “For the people of Chatham County, the Courthouse is both an historic structure and an emblem of the very heart and soul of the community. It creates a lasting impression on folks who are just passing through, as well,� Price said. “Most anyone who has driven this stretch of 64 remembers Pittsboro because of this unique landmark, and North Carolinians near and far will take heart at the determination of Chatham County to rebuild.� Until rebuilding efforts begin, government officials have begun work to ensure continuity of operations and develop a plan to restore the courthouse.

America doesn’t need court approval to pray Government recognition of a national “day of prayer” can be traced to the nation’s birth, but wasn’t established by Congress until 1952. That law was amended in 1988 to establish a more specific date and eventually signed by President Reagan. It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that it’s under attack. Last week, Barbara Crabb, the U.S. District Court Judge for Western Wisconsin, ruled that the federal establishment of the National Day of Prayer was unconstitutional. When it comes to religion and observances of a spiritual nature, the landscape is, and has been, changing. More and more federal judges have

made rulings which seem to be designed to challenge precepts and values that have been in the United States traditionally considered, well, traditional. Even one writer who agreed with Judge Crabb’s ruling described her as a “hate-spouting, flame-snorting, right-wing dinga-ling.” Name-calling aside, the basis for the judge’s decision is rooted in the idea that the Establishment Clause of the Constitution prevents the government from encouraging or discouraging religious practices. That may sound like a reasonable legal argument except for the fact that prayer — and the observance of a day set aside for faithful to do

just that — is voluntary. Semantics and legality notwithstanding, a proclamation doesn’t represent a state sanction on the part of elected officials for the citizenry to hit their collective knees. Rather, it’s recognition. Not to slight the tree-huggers out there, but seriously — who among us plants trees on Arbor Day? Many, certainly, but not all. Ever felt compelled to do so? Maybe, but not because of fear of what anyone in Washington would say. Is a National Day of Prayer problematic? Only if it’s compulsory. The national tradition of observing a day “on which the people of the United States MAY (emphasis added) turn to

God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups, and as individuals” doesn’t establish a national religion or mandate a practice. Rather, like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day — also traditions eventually designated by Congress in proclamations — it’s a simple acknowledgment. The White House hasn’t said whether it would appeal Judge Crabb’s ruling, which only affects the area of her jurisdiction in western Wisconsin. And since the ruling it won’t be enforced until any and all appeals to it are heard and have a chance to play out in the courts, the White House does indeed plan to observe the day that first Thursday

of next month. None of us need governmental “encouragement” or an Act of Congress to pray. In Sanford alone, a half-dozen or so events related to the National Day of Prayer will be held on May 6, including the “main” event at the Sanford Municipal Building on Weatherspoon Street. During this time of war and economic instability, it’s hard to imagine, says Franklin Graham, the honorary chairman of this year’s observance, “anyone seriously opposing a National Day of Prayer.” In the meantime, we can thank God that — for now at least — the higher power on which our nation has called upon doesn’t rest in Washing-

Idol, food and hummingbirds

W

hen I was asked to be a judge for the Broadway Idol contest held last Saturday, I knew that it would be much different than when I had been a judge for a chili contest in Goldston last year. After all, I know what I like when it comes to food — and as someone who likes chili, I was comfortable with my choices. But judging talent, well, that’s another matter. The nine talented individuals who took part in the Broadway Idol competition at the Broadway Our Way Festival were outstanding. Choosing a winner was no easy task for the three judges. The winner was 17-year-old Allie Lilley, who had left early so that she could attend her high school prom. Matthew Wilson, 19, finished second, and Julio Borja, 22, was third. The other contestants were Mindy Bradley, Erica Duval, Hunter Cox, Bud Patterson, Michael Young and Sandy Whitehead. They all deserve congratulations on a job well done with their crowdpleasing performances. A large audience was on hand and was most supportive of the Idol contestants. It was an honor to serve as a judge and be treated to such talent on a beautiful day at the Broadway Our Way Festival.

Good food Lee County is fortunate to have so many fine eating establishments, many of which I’ve had the good fortunate to experience. I’ll have to admit that until recently I had not eaten at Elaine’s Grill. While located along Horner Boulevard in the downtown area, I had passed by it many times but it was an invitation from Don Hudson of DK Clay that led me to the visit. I was not disappointed as the food was um-m-m good. The fried pork chops were just right. So were the veggies. Good cornbread. And the punch drink was really good. There were plenty of other tasty sounding items on the menu, including one of my favorites, salmon patties. Elaine Buie is the owner/operator of the establishment … and delivery service is available in the downtown area. Try it. You’ll like it.

Hummingbirds The hummingbirds have arrived. Sharon McDonald of Broadway Road called last week to report that the first hummingbirds had been spotted at her home. McDonald said that she has two hummingbird feeders, that she had put out about two weeks earlier. So, the hummingbirds have arrived, the azaleas are in beautiful bloom and the strawberries will soon be in their full splendor. Ah, isn’t this a grand time of the year?

Arizona showdown W

hen Arizona’s bitter Republican primary election arrives in August, it is likely to be 102 degrees in the shade, of which there is little. It is the kind of weather in which only the hearty and highly motivated venture outdoors — Gila monsters and tea party activists. Which may not be good news for Sen. John McCain, who is generally disliked by the latter. A recent poll puts McCain just five points ahead of J.D. Hayworth, a former congressman and radio talk show host who aspires to be Arizona’s Samuel Adams. McCain operatives dispute that the race is this close, but they cannot dispute that McCain is running in a political environment in which absolutely anything could happen to an incumbent. The tea party movement resists both organization and generalization. But the outcome of Arizona’s Republican primary will do much to define it. The movement is often called “organic.” Both tulips and poison ivy are organic. And Hayworth is a toxic influence. Hayworth’s 12 years representing parts of the Phoenix suburbs have been described by his former colleague Dick Armey as a “fairly short, undistinguished congressional career.” But Hayworth attracted national attention after an epiphany of sorts in 2005. Though he had previously sponsored legislation to create a guest worker program, Hayworth became a militant foe of Mexican immigration. Not just illegal immigration. Hayworth proposed a moratorium on legal immigration from Mexico. He declared an intention not merely to secure the border but to “stand up for our culture” — which implies that Mexicans adulterate American culture. Hayworth warned of activists who would create an Aztec state on the ruins of American sovereignty in the Southwest. He voted against an anti-immigrant measure — which, among other provisions, prohibited religious charities from aiding illegal immigrants — because he thought the legislation was too soft. From 2004 to 2006, Hayworth’s share of the vote in some Hispanic-influenced precincts dropped by more than 20 points, and he was carried away in the national anti-Republican deluge. Hayworth now presses his anti-immigration message in a primary challenge to McCain — contesting for the right to run for the Senate in a state that is about 18 percent Hispanic. To this appeal, Hayworth has added a “birther” message accusing President Obama of “identity theft.” Here he is on legalizing gay marriage: “I guess that would mean if you really had affection for your horse, I guess you could marry your horse.” Tea party leaders have been understandably reluctant to endorse a candidate likely to embarrass any movement elastic enough to include Hayworth. Both Rep. Michele Bachmann and Sen. Jim DeMint have declared themselves officially neutral in the

Michael Gerson Columnist Michael Gerson is a columnist with the Washington Post Writers Group

Arizona Republican primary. Sarah Palin has campaigned for McCain. This skepticism is compounded by Hayworth’s congressional record, which puts him in a select group among would-be tea party heroes. He is, I would bet, the only tea party candidate with a history of hosting fundraisers in lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s sports skyboxes. How many other tea party revolutionaries have also been enthusiastic legislative earmarkers, or voted for the Medicare prescription drug benefit, or supported the 2005 highway bill, which included the “bridge to nowhere”? There are reasons that McCain is politically endangered. He is the Senate’s most gifted practitioner of sudden, disproportionate anger. He often seems overly impressed by his own virtue. Many in Washington and Arizona would pay good money to see him humbled. His epic service is matched by epic flaws — but an insufficient commitment to fiscal conservatism is not among them. A primary loss might be good for McCain’s soul. But it would be bad for his party and for the country. At his best, McCain is precisely what a senator should be — independent, passionate, unawed by power, unmoved by influence. He has quickened national debates on torture, the environment, immigration, military strategy in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the budget process. He now stands accused of sidling to the right during a Republican primary — of which he is guilty. But events of the last year have moved Republicans of every variety to the right, in reaction to the vast Obama overreach. In contrast, Hayworth symbolizes the worst excesses of the tea party movement, without having displayed any of its redeeming fiscal virtues while in office. His candidacy presents a test. If the movement embraces politicians such as Hayworth, it will not only prove itself extreme; it will prove itself gullible.

Today’s Prayer And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28) PRAYER: Father, we thank You for Your love, mercy and grace. Amen.

As chairman of the Lee County Board of Education, I am compelled to follow the code of ethics of the Lee County Board of Education that states “a board member’s first and greatest concern must be the educational welfare of the students attending the public school.” To that end, all 1,256 employees should be commended in their efforts in assisting the educational welfare of the more than 9,500 students currently enrolled. It is unfortunate that this campaign season has drawn condemnation of our employees. At the recent Herald forum, three candidates graded Lee County Schools no greater than “average,” indeed two candidates gave a grade of “D.” I offer the following as testimony to our school employees in their endeavor to help each and every child achieve academic success: n Received national district accreditation from AdvancEd/SACS CASI. n Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP): exceeded surrounding counties, Wake County and state average in making growth and in meeting goals. n Graduation rate: 70.7%, compared to 71.7% state average — from 2006-07 the rate has improved from 63.4% to 70.7%. n Dropout rate: 5.61%, second lowest rate in 11 years. n 86.61% of students in the Classes of 2009 indicated plans to go to college or enter military. n Value of scholarships received by the Classes of 2009: $2,416,936. n Financial reporting awards received every year since 2001: North Carolina State Board of Education Recognition of Achievement in Financial Resource Management, the Association of School Business Officials Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting, and the Government Finance Officers Association Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. n Transportation: 100% efficiency rating, compared to 94.63% state average. n Preventative maintenance schedule of facilities established and adhered to since 2007. Our teachers’ willingness to explore new and innovative approaches in educating our children are demonstrating positive benefits. Although their efforts may not carry a letter grade, the effect on a child’s life is “priceless.” WILLIAM P. TATUM Sanford

Local Clays Continued from Page 1A

offers several different competitions Friday and Saturday before Sunday’s main event. While the guns may change, the targets don’t. DRSC will go through thousands upon thousands of sporting clays (clay discs) this weekend. The facility is considered one of the top sporting clay fields in the state, and Kempffer likes to think of it as a golf course for shooters because of the numerous stations where the targets are either flying away from you, across from you or rolling on the ground like a rabbit. “The first few days are all about competing for bragging rights,” Kempffer said. “Shooters will compete for trophies depending on the gauge they’re using.” On Sunday (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.), they’ll compete for the Ripon Cup, named for Frederick Oliver Robinson, the Second Marquess of Ripon, a well-known English sportsman from the 1800s who is said to have the deadliest game shot the world has ever known (a 1972 Sports Illustrated article claimed he killed more than 500,000 birds and boasted a 70 percent “kill rate” ... a good shooter would be pleased with a 40 percent rate).

The Sanford Herald / Wednesday, April 21, 2010 / 7A A LITTLE FOR EVERYBODY The Spring Classic is not all about shooting guns. In addition to the numerous competitions and “have-a-go” stand where guests can try out new rifles, Kempffer says there will be more vendors than ever this year. Exhibitors from the U.S. and Europe will occupy four giant tents offering a variety of guns, sporting clothes, accessories, books, fine jewelry, dog kennels, travel necessities and more. A true Southern-style “pig pickin’” will being at 6 p.m. Saturday, preceded by a social tent with bluegrass music by Alice Zicone and Haywire at 5. On Sunday, the Rev. Charlie Brooks with Winchester Wesleyan Church will hold a worship service at 8 a.m. Between now and Friday morning, Kempffer and his crew at DRSC will be hard at work putting the final touches on the grounds. “We’re just making sure the infrastructure’s ready,” he said. “ ... toilet facilities for more than a thousand people, food, getting the band ready, areas for picnicking, 23,000 square feet of tent space for visitors, doing the normal course changes for the shooters ... there’s a lot to do, but we’re excited about the weekend.”

said. “How is this going to impact the students and their families? How will this affect the staff?” Bonardi previously served on the board from 2004-08, and getting involved again would be a simple transition for him. In 2008, he took time off to focus on his family and now has their blessing in running again. In addition to Caleb, Bonardi and his wife Susan have another son, Josh, who’s a student at East Carolina University. “Anytime you go into something, there’s a bit of a learning curve,” he said. “I think I would be able to jump right in from day one.” During his time on the board, he served on the facilities and technology committee. His 20 years of construction experience — he’s an estimator/project manager for S. T. Wooten Corporation — would benefit the board. He believes his ability to work with others makes him stand out, too. “You’re a board of seven individuals,” he said. “I’m a positive person and I like to find ways to accomplish goals. I accept other people’s input and I enjoy working as a team. That’s the way it has to be. Everybody has to work together to get the job done.” A clearly divided board like Wake County’s has a negative impact on the schools, Bonardi said.

The Family of Robert Easterling wishes to thank everyone for their kindness during our time of sorrow. Thanks for your prayers, cards, memorial gifts, and flowers.

“Obviously, (LCS is) not perfect. There are plenty of areas we need to work on. We do need to focus on lowering the dropout rate,” he said. “When the trend is improving and then you get just a slight uptick, it is a little disappointing.” The Lee County Schools dropout rate went from 4.98 percent in 2007-08 to 5.61 percent last year. Bonardi said it’s important to make sure a high school diploma is worth something for Lee County students. Making education relevant to students is what draws them in, he said. His son Caleb gets excited about his involvement in teacher Carrie Womack’s agriculture class at SLHS and Future Farmers of America; he’s even planted a garden at home, Bonardi said. “It’s so important to make a connection with students. (Womack) makes a connection with all of her students,” he said. “That connection has to be made, whether it’s through athletics, through (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) classes. It’s different for each student. We’ve got some really wonderful teachers who make that connection. It can be difficult to reach each one but that’s where the effort needs to be made. It means a lot to me as a parent.” With inspiration from great teachers that engage students, “I think we will begin to see some improvement in our dropout rate,” Bonardi said.

STATE BRIEFS

Court rejects appeal of coastal insurance jump said attorneys representing Dare, Washington, Currituck, and Hyde counties and five coastal towns. Attorneys for the state agency and the Rate Bureau told the judges at a hearing three months ago that state law makes the insurance commissioner responsible for representing consumers, and rate settlements can’t be appealed to the court by anyone else. Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin, who took over the month after Long’s settlement, said the case isn’t over and he couldn’t comment on Tuesday’s ruling. A second, related appeal of the Rate Bureau case was argued last week before a different three-judge appeals court panel, Goodwin said. “Our case is still before the Court of Appeals on the issues that are important to us,� Dare County Manager Bobby Outten said. “This was one of two avenues that was dismissed and the other avenue is before the court for their decision.� The judges ruled that since Long never held a hearing at which the rate

By EMERY P. DALESIO Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — A state appeals court ruled Tuesday it can’t reverse homeowners’ insurance premiums that soared by up to nearly 30 percent along the coast because state law doesn’t allow a challenge to the former insurance commissioner’s last-minute deal. A three-judge Court of Appeals panel ruled in a lawsuit by coastal communities trying to overturn a December 2008 deal between former Insurance Commissioner Jim Long and the North Carolina Rate Bureau, which represents insurers. Their settlement on homeowners’ rates, which came weeks before Long ended his 24year run as the state’s top insurance regulator, also allowed homeowners in 32 western counties to cut their premiums. The municipalities argued Long made the deal before coastal residents could react to the increases insurers wanted. Then Long allowed homeowners’ premiums to jump by unreasonably high levels,

increases were challenged, and never judged the requested premium increases to be excessive, inadequate, or unreasonable, the court couldn’t overturn the deal. “This court cannot assume jurisdiction over any order of the commissioner that does not include those requisite findings,� Judge Ann Marie Calabria wrote in the ruling also joined by Judges Linda Stephens and Martha Geer. Long’s decision meant that homeowners policies that were written or renewed beginning May 1 for coastal properties from Sunset Beach to Morehead City could jump 29.8 percent. Policy premiums for homes on the Outer Banks counties of Currituck, Dare, Hyde and Pamilco were allowed to rise by 22 percent, a big jump but a bargain compared to the doubling of rates that insurance companies originally sought. The rate changes included policies written by both private insurance companies and the Beach Plan, the state’s property insurance provider for coastal properties.

Animal shelter discontinues ‘heart sticking’

Amazon: tracking taxes violates free speech

A.M. Secrest, anti-segregation editor, dies at 86

RALEIGH (AP) — Online retailer Amazon.com Inc. says it’s taking a stand for free speech by fighting an effort by North Carolina tax authorities to identify buyers. The company says in a federal lawsuit filed in Seattle that North Carolina tax collectors have demanded information identifying the buyers of nearly 50 million books, movies, CDs and other items since 2003. A spokeswoman for the state Revenue Department had no immediate comment Tuesday. Revenue Secretary Kenneth Lay was named in the lawsuit but was not immediately available for comment. North Carolina requires residents to pay taxes on online items if they would pay sales tax in a store. Amazon says revealing buyers’ names would harm customers who may have bought controversial books or movies and would diminish future sales.

CHAPEL HILL (AP) — A.M. “Mac� Secrest, editor of a small weekly newspaper who crusaded against Southern resistance to desegregation in the 1950s, has died. He was 86. David Secrest says his father died Saturday in Chapel Hill after complications from throat cancer surgery. “Mac� Secrest also served as a federal mediator in the civil rights struggles of the 1960s and taught at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He was the owner and publisher of The Cheraw Chronicle in northeastern South Carolina. He criticized segregationists who followed the massive resistance strategy after the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education. Secrest pressed his views despite threats of violence, attacks on his home and menacing signs placed in

ST. PAULS (AP) — The only shelter in North Carolina to use “heart sticking� to euthanize animals has stopped the practice. The Robesonian in Lumberton reported that the Robeson County Health Department agreed last week to euthanize intravenously rather than using heart sticking. That procedure involves puncturing a sedated animal’s heart with a needle containing sodium pentobarbital. Health Director Bill Smith called for the change last week after meeting with animal rights advocates and state Rep. Pat McElraft, who is sponsoring a bill to outlaw heart sticking in North Carolina. Intravenous euthanasia was scheduled to begin Tuesday at the shelter in St. Pauls, where about 4,000 animals are euthanized each year.

STATE BRIEFS

Perdue rolls out changes for 2010-11 By GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue proposed Tuesday that legislators trim another 2 percent in state spending from North Carolina’s government budget for the coming year in part by eliminating or reducing dozens of programs and requiring cash-strapped local school districts to make even further reductions. Perdue released her recommended changes to the second year of the twoyear budget approved by the General Assembly and signed by the governor last summer. Her plan would reduce the budgeted amount by a net $410 million to $19.1 billion. The reductions she wants starting July 1 reflect the still-troubled economy generating less tax revenues than was predicted last August. Tax collections are only expected to

grow 2.7 percent. It’s still an improvement over the historic 10.9 percent decline in collections the last fiscal year and the slight decline for the year ending June 30. “North Carolina’s economy is stabilizing again,” Perdue told reporters in releasing the plan, but “I don’t believe any time soon we’ll be back to the giddy days of 2007 and early 2008 ... This budget helps us set the table for that ’new normal’ and it also propels where we need to be as the economy improves.” While the governor said the proposal reduces spending by $950 million, it would funnel much of those cost savings toward expanding her “Ready Set Go!” education initiative and small business tax breaks and corporate incentives, teaching more community college and university students, improving mental health

services and pay for employee salaries and benefits. Perdue also wants a new transportation fund, paid for mostly with higher fees, to build urgent projects like the Yadkin River Bridge replacement on Interstate 85. The Medicaid program to provide in-home personal care services would be retooled to get a handle on overspending after efforts this year have failed. There are no broadbased tax increases, although car and truck owners would see their annual state vehicle registrations rise from $28 to $35 to pay for the new North Carolina Mobility Fund, which Perdue’s office hopes will one day reach $300 million. “It’s a realistic budget. It makes tough decisions now instead of kicking them backward or forwards for another time,” Perdue said. Another 600

positions would be eliminated in addition to the 2,000 this year, according to Perdue, although most of newly targeted positions are vacant. The state also expects another $578 million in expected federal stimulus funds to help close a budget gap projected at $1.2 billion. Given that Perdue also held back funds in this year’s budget to narrow a revenue shortfall, Republicans weren’t impressed with what the governor called a fiscally sound plan. “It’s not a cut as much as an increased budget when you look at the numbers,” said House Minority Leader Paul Stam, R-Wake. “It definitely is an increase is spending.” Fellow Democrats who control the House and Senate already are working on their own budget adjustments ahead of the May 12 convening of the Legislature.

WILMINGTON

Anti-port group says mega port analysis flawed

WILMINGTON (AP) — Opponents of a massive cargo terminal along North Carolina’s coast have filed a complaint challenging the conclusions of a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers study recommending that state and federal officials move forward with a feasibility study. The nonprofit No Port/ Southport claims the port inflated the economic

benefits of a proposed international port according to a complaint filed Monday with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Inspector General. The group says the corps’ analysis is based on the “capture” of container traffic from other Atlantic coast ports. Inclusion of captured economic benefits is prohibited by section 904 of the Water Resources Development

Act of 1986, according to the complaint. “Without consideration of captured benefits, the analysis would not find a surplus of benefits over costs,” writes retired Col.

Task force recommends changes in diets

Father, son drown while fishing on lake

RALEIGH (AP) — A task force is recommending changes in the diets of North Carolina students. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported the Legislative Task Force on Childhood Obesity announced 14 recommendations Monday to improve children’s’ health. The 12-member panel put the recommendations together after hearing from a variety of experts. Many recommendations call for more money for school lunchrooms. Laurinburg Rep. Douglas Youngue says it will be hard to get those approved quickly because of funding problems. The panel says the ideas would save money eventually on health care.

SALISBURY (AP) — Authorities say a father and son from North Carolina have drowned while fishing this past weekend. The Salisbury Post reported that that Davidson County Sheriff’s Office identified the victims as 39-year-old Photy Chanthahevang of Albemarle and his 14-year-old son, Blu. Sheriff David Grice says the man was fishing with two sons on Tuckertown Lake when the accident happened late Saturday afternoon. Grice says Blu dropped his rod and reel in the water and was trying to retrieve them when he fell into the water. The father jumped in to rescue his son and both drowned despite rescuers’ attempts to save them. The younger son was not hurt.

Fort Bragg increases patrols of dangerous road FORT BRAGG (AP) — Fort Bragg officials say they’ve increased patrols of a North Carolina road where 60 wrecks have occurred in the last two years. WRAL-TV reported that Plank Road is a popular shortcut that trims several miles off the trip between Fayetteville and Southern Pines. In 2008, military police issued 116 tickets to drivers on Plank Road who were clocked at 21 mph or more above the speed limit. Last year, they wrote 260 such tickets. But the number of wrecks on the two-lane road increased from 27 in 2008 to 33 last year.

Highway Patrol to focus on work-zone speeding RALEIGH (AP) — Two agencies in North Carolina have begun their annual operation to reduce traffic accidents in work zones across the state. The N.C. State Highway Patrol and the N.C. Department of Transportation are kicking off Operation Drive Smart 2010. The Highway Patrol will set up enforcement and crack down on excessive speeders in nine work zones from Camden County to Buncombe County. Troopers will use motorcycles and marked and unmarked patrol vehicles and pay attention to all motorists, including commercial motor vehicle drivers committing serious traffic violations.

TENNESSEE HOSPITAL KILLING

NATION BRIEFS Man loses part of his pinky when thief snatches iPad

DENVER (AP) — A thief’s thirst for a brand new iPad cost a Colorado man not only a much-coveted device but also two-thirds of a pinky finger. Doctors had to amputate part of Bill Jordan’s left pinky after a man Thursday yanked away a bag containing an iPad that Jordan had just purchased at a Denver mall. Jordan, 59, had the cord of the bag wrapped around his left hand when the thief “completely blind-sided” him and jerked the bag off his hand, stripping the flesh of Jordan’s finger down to the bone. “He kept pulling until something had to give, and it wound up being my finger,” Jordan said in an interview Tuesday. “There was nothing but bone showing on the whole back of the pinky,” Jordan said. “The skin was just gone.”

New Yorkers brace for possible doorman strike

NEW YORK (AP) — They sign for deliveries, hail taxis, fix leaky faucets and, of course, open doors. Nearly 1 million New York City apartment dwellers rely on doormen and other building workers to make life in a high-rise run smoothly. But 30,000 doormen, concierges,

porters and handymen were threatening to go on strike at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, worrying many tenants. “What do we do with the trash?” said Stafanie Howarth, who lives in a brick apartment tower in Greenwich Village. “Do we bring it outside? I don’t know.” The union members work at luxury buildings with grand marble lobbies and at modest buildings for middle-class tenants. They mop the hallways, admit visitors and accept deliveries of groceries and Chinese food. Some will walk a tenant’s dog or assemble Ikea furniture.

Judge says ex-Detroit mayor violated probation DETROIT (AP) — Former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick violated terms of his probation by failing to report assets and turn over tax refunds, a judge ruled Tuesday, strongly suggesting he may send him to jail when he’s sentenced next month. Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner said Kilpatrick could remain free on bond pending his sentencing on May 25, and ordered state corrections officials to prepare a pre-sentence report by May 18. Kilpatrick pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in 2008 after sexually explicit text messages became public, showing he had lied under oath about an affair with a staff member in a whistle-blowers’ lawsuit.

Shooter thought doctor implanted chip By BETH RUCKER Associated Press Writer

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A mentally ill convenience store operator took a revolver with him to look for the doctor he believed implanted a tracking device in his body during an appendectomy in 2001. Told the doctor wasn’t at the hospital, he went to a nearby parking lot and opened fire on three hospital workers he apparently didn’t know, killing one of them. Gunman Abdo Ibssa (AB’-doh IHB’-sah) entered a medical tower near Parkwest Medical Center before Monday’s attack and asked for the doctor who performed the appendectomy, Knoxville Police Chief Sterling Owen IV said. Unable to find the doctor, Ibssa went to another area where patients are discharged and opened fire on the women as they walked out of the building. Ibssa, who police believe had been skipping doses of medication for psychotic behavior, killed himself to end the shooting, which occurred a day before his 39th birthday. “There was less than 5 seconds from the time of the first shot until the last shot,” Owen said at a

Investigators found a note at Ibssa’s Knoxville apartment in which the gunman said the doctor had implanted a chip that was being used to track his movements, Owen said. Ibssa had a successful appendectomy at Premier Surgical Associates in November 2001 and suffered no complications, according to a statement from CEO Kevin Burris. Police and Burris declined to identify the doctor who treated him, but Burris confirmed that Ibssa was at the medical office Monday looking for the surgeon. Haloperidol, an antipsychotic medica-

tion used to treat schizophrenia and Tourette syndrome, was also found at Ibssa’s apartment, but investigators believe he hadn’t been using it, Owen said. Owen said relatives of the naturalized citizen from Ethiopia had him committed for mental treatment in February. Also found during the search were a second handgun, a bag of marijuana and a copy of the book “The Official CIA Manual of Trickery and

Deception” — a reproduction of a Cold War-era CIA handbook on the use of illusion and deception for acts of espionage. The gun used in the shooting had been reported stolen in March, while other one had an altered serial number but wasn’t reported stolen. Police were not sure how Ibssa obtained either gun and said he did not have a handgun permit. Police said Ibssa operated a convenience store near downtown Knoxville, which was closed Tuesday. On Monday, a cab driver picked Ibssa up outside his apartment building, and the gunman told him to take him to the western side of Knoxville, eventually specifying the medical center. Cab driver Freddys Sakhleh said Ibssa said seemed angry and depressed and said little about himself. Ibssa directed the cab driver to the medical center tower and told to wait for him to come back. Inside, the gunman was told the doctor he sought wasn’t there.

Stevens turns 90; only Holmes was older By MARK SHERMAN

Source: Obama talking to possible court picks

Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; His tenure on the Supreme Court touched four decades, following service in a war that defined his generation and a childhood in a prominent family. He celebrated his 90th birthday among court colleagues at least a dozen years younger. Until Tuesday, Oliver Wendell Holmes was the only American who fit that description. Now, John Paul Stevens becomes the second Supreme Court justice to mark his 90th birthday on the court. Stevensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recent announcement that he will retire this summer, a few months after turning 90, means Holmes will remain the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest justice. He retired two months shy of his 91st birthday in 1932. Holmes, whose bushy mustache was his most striking physical feature, was born during the short presidency of William Henry Harrison, the ninth president. He died with Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd president, in the White House. His grandmother remembered fleeing Boston ahead of the advancing British at the start of the Revolutionary War. Stevens, known for his sporty bow ties, was born near the end of the wartime presidency of Woodrow Wilson, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 28th president. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaving to allow his successor to be nominated by Barack Obama, the 44th. There are similarities

Rehnquist, at the Supreme Court in Washington. between the two justices that extend well beyond their longevity. Holmes grew up in Boston amid the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading intellectuals. Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow were visitors to the family home. Stevens was born into a family that owned a large hotel in Chicago that attracted celebrities as guests. As a child, he made the acquaintance of Amelia Earhart and Charles Lindbergh. Both men were decorated war veterans: Stevens spent World War II in naval intelligence, while Holmes was wounded three times in the Civil War. Their appointments to the court had little to do with their political ideology, said G. Edward White, a University of Virginia law professor and Holmes biographer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both Holmes and Stevens are not identified in any easy way with national politics,â&#x20AC;? White said. One significant differ-

ence White pointed out is that Stevens has used his seniority on the court to great effect, leading the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liberals by attracting votes from more conservative justices on key issues over the past 15 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Holmes was quite detached from the politics of the court,â&#x20AC;? White said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never found any evidence that Holmes used position as senior associate justice, which he was for quite a while, in a strategic fashion.â&#x20AC;? Another difference between them, perhaps, is the manner of their retirements. Stevens, who is among the longest-serving as well as oldest justices, has not said anything in public to explain the timing of his departure after more than 34 years as a justice. Yet in stepping down before breaking Holmesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; record or eclipsing William O. Douglasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 36 years as a justice, Stevens is in a sense ensuring that he will be remembered more for what he did on the court than

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama has begun conversations with potential Supreme Court nominees, a senior administration official said Tuesday, signaling an upswing in the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consideration of an already coalescing list of candidates. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s review will throttle ahead on Wednesday morning when he meets privately with the top Democrat anad Republican in the Senate along with the chairman and ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the panel that will hold confirmation hearings on Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nominee. The presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination is expected over the next few weeks. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discussions with candidates for the high court have not been formal interviews, the administration official emphasized, speaking on condition of anonymity to protect the privacy of Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deliberations. The official would not say whether the conversations have been held in person or by phone. Obama is choosing a successor to Justice John Paul Stevens, who is retiring this summer after nearly 35 years on the court.

Report says school food making kids unfit to serve WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Too fat to fight? Many American children are so overweight from being fed french fries, pizza and other unhealthy foods at school lunchrooms that they cannot handle the physical rigors of being in the military, a group of retired officers say in a new report. National security is threatened by the sharp rise in obesity rates for young people over the last 15 years, the group Mission: Readiness contends. Weight problems are now the leading medical reason that recruits are rejected, the group says, and thus jeopardize the militaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to fill its ranks. In a report released Tuesday, the group says that 9 million young adults, or 27 percent of all Americans ages 17 to 24, are too fat to join the military. The retired officers were on Capitol Hill advocating for passage of a wide-ranging nutrition bill that aims to make the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school lunches healthier. The military group acknowledges that other things keep young adults out of the armed services, such as a criminal record or the lack of a high school diploma.

Group wants military to cancel Grahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit DENVER (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A watchdog group objected Tuesday to an evangelistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s invitation to speak at the Pentagon next month, saying his past description of Islam as â&#x20AC;&#x153;evilâ&#x20AC;? offended Muslims who work for the Department of Defense and

the appearance should be canceled. Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said inviting evangelist Franklin Graham to speak May 6, the National Day of Prayer, â&#x20AC;&#x153;would be like bringing someone in on national prayer day madly denigrating Christianityâ&#x20AC;? or other religious groups. It would also endanger American troops by stirring up Muslim extremists, Weinstein said. Graham is the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham and president and CEO of both Samaritanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Purse, a Christian international relief organization in Boone, and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, in Charlotte. He said through a spokesman that he will be a guest of the Pentagon and will speak only if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still invited. A military spokeswoman said she was locating officials to respond to the criticism.

Officials reverse Bush policy on equity By CHRISTINE ARMARIO and DORIE TURNER Associated Press Writers

The U.S. Department of Education is repealing a Bush-era policy that some critics argue was a way to avoid complying with federal law in providing equal opportunities for female athletes. Under the move, schools and colleges must now provide stronger evidence that they offer equal opportunities for athletic participation under the federal Title IX gender equity law. It reverses a 2005 policy under former President George W. Bush that allowed schools to use just a survey to prove a lack of interest in starting a new women’s sport and encouraged schools to consider a non-response to the questionnaire as disinterest. “Making Title IX as strong as it possibly can be is the right thing to do,” Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday at an event at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., announcing the change. U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan cautioned that discrimination continues to exist in college athletic programs and urged vigilance in enforcing the law. The Education Department announced last month that it will be intensifying its civil rights enforcement efforts on a broad range of topics, gender equity among them. The department has sent letters about the change in Title IX policy to more than 15,600 school districts and 5,600 college and university presidents. “This is a great step, a reaffirmation of faith in

Smith Center at George Washington University in Washington Tuesday. equality for women,” said former U.S. Sen. Birch Bayh, who helped pass the law in 1972 and called the change long overdue. Schools have three ways to comply with Title IX: Match the proportion of female athletes to the proportion of women on campus; show a history of increasing sports for women; or prove the school has met the interest and ability of women to participate in athletics. Before 2005, the third option required districts and colleges to use multiple indicators to assess athletic interests and abilities. The new letter informs institutions that survey results alone cannot justify an imbalance in women’s sports. It’s unclear how many schools used the survey as a measure of federal compliance and what the impact was, since schools aren’t required to state which of the three Title IX compliance standards

they are using, said Neena Chaudhry, senior counsel for the National Women’s Law Center, a nonprofit organization based in Washington. There aren’t any statistics to show opportunities for women were denied, but Chaudhry suggested it was a possibility. “Why wouldn’t they use this policy?” she said. “It’s an easy way out.” Data collected by the NCAA shows the number of female athletes at member institutions rose from 157,740 in 2000-2001 to 182,503 in 2008-2009. The number of male athletes rose from 217,114 to 244,267 — a slightly larger increase than that seen among women athletes. At the same time, there are more women’s teams than men’s — 9,560 compared to 8,465, a difference due to the larger rosters on men’s teams, according to the NCAA. That’s because it takes multiple women’s teams to equal the number

Before Tuesday’s event began, female college and Olympic athletes led groups of girls in athletic activities, including soccer drills, passing volleyballs, shooting baskets and doing cheerleading lifts. Some of the girls wore green Girl Scout sashes and could be heard shouting, giggling and squealing with enthusiasm. “We have a long way to go still and we want to take away every barrier that exists,” Biden said. Russlynn Ali, assistant secretary for the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights, said during a news conference with reporters that while the survey is important, it ought not to be the only measure. “We think we’ve opened up the door for institutions to use the surveys correctly,” Ali said. But Gerald Reynolds, a former Education Department official under Bush, said the new policy is a step back for women’s rights because it focuses more on numbers than what female and male students want. “The women’s movement was in part about ensuring women’s liberty interests — that in the hopes, wishes and desires about any aspect of their life, they were the shot-callers,” said Reynolds, chairman of the National Commission on Civil Rights. “I think we are trampling upon that concept.”

Space shuttle Discovery, crew of 7 back on Earth CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Shuttle Discovery and its astronauts returned safely to Earth on Tuesday after making a rare flyover of America’s heartland to wrap up their 15-day, 6 million-mile journey to the International Space Station. The touchdown was delayed by rain and fog that dissipated as the sun rose, allowing Mission Control to take advantage of the morning’s second landing opportunity. Shuttle commander Alan Poindexter held a small U.S. flag as he stood in front of Discovery, two hours later, and described the “beautiful entry.” Discovery swooped through a hazy sky before landing a day late because of rain. Within a few hours of completing what one NASA manager described as an “unbelievably successful mission,” the space agency was announcing delays to its last two shuttle flights.

Divorce dilemma: Texas says gays can’t get divorce DALLAS (AP) — After the joy of a wedding and the adoption of a baby came arguments that couldn’t be resolved, leading Angelique Naylor to file for divorce. That left her fighting both the woman she married in Massachusetts and the state of Texas, which says a union granted in a state where same-sex marriage

is legal can’t be dissolved with a divorce in a state where it’s not. A judge in Austin granted the divorce, but Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is appealing the decision. He also is appealing a divorce granted to a gay couple in Dallas, saying protecting the “traditional definition of marriage” means doing the same for divorce. A state appeals court is scheduled to hear arguments in the Dallas case on Wednesday.

SEATTLE (AP) — Apple says its net income in the most recent quarter jumped 90 percent, helped by strong iPhone and Macintosh computer sales. Its results blew past Wall Street’s expectations. Apple Inc. says it sold nearly 9 million of its popular smart phones in the three months that ended March 27, more than double sales from a year ago. The company sold almost 3 million Macs, a 33 percent increase. IPod unit sales edged down 1 percent — but Apple still sold 10 million of the digital players. Apple says it earned $3.07 billion, or $3.33 per share.

SEC chief pledges better bank oversight By ALAN ZIBEL AP Business Writer

WASHINGTON — The chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday pledged better oversight of the nation’s largest banks after criticism that the agency failed to spot accounting tricks at investment bank Lehman Brothers before it collapsed. Chairman Mary Schapiro told a congressional panel that the agency has sent letters to 19 banks seeking information about whether they are using accounting tricks that a bankruptcy examiner said masked the bank’s precarious financial condition. Lehman failed in September 2008 in the largest corporate bankruptcy in U.S. history. Schapiro, who was not with the SEC at the time, said the agency is scrutinizing Lehman’s use of the accounting move, known as Repo 105, that allowed it to mask its weakness. Her testimony follows widespread criticism that the SEC failed to properly monitor Wall Street ahead of the Great Recession, and after the agency filed civil fraud charges Friday against Goldman Sachs. Tuesday’s hearing examining what led to Lehman’s meltdown drew lawmakers into a partisan squabble over the Obama administration’s push for financial regulatory reform. Republicans pointed to the track records of the SEC and

Lehman’s collapse was the biggest corporate bankruptcy in U.S. history and threw global financial markets into crisis. The hearing looked at the bankruptcy examiner’s report, which said the firm masked $50 billion in debt. Schapiro said the SEC is examining “the truthfulness of the disclosure” in Lehman’s financial filings. “It’s not clear any action by the SEC could have saved Lehman Brothers, but we are determined to use the lessons of that experience to be more effective,” Schapiro said. “More vigorous oversight and a new approach are essential.” Richard Fuld, Lehman’s former CEO, said he has “absolutely no recollection whatsoever”

of any documents related to the so-called Repo 105 accounting maneuver. After reviewing the transactions, he said the firm complied with accounting standards. Fuld expressed regret about the company’s collapse. “One day we had a firm,” he said. “The next day we did not. A lot of people got hurt by that, and I have to live with that.” Michael Lee, a former Lehman vice president, testified that he tried to alert Lehman managers to concerns he had about Lehman’s accounting. He sent a letter in May 2008 to top executives. After that, he said, “somebody came into my office, pulled me out and fired me on the spot.” The bankruptcy examiner, Anton Valukas, criticized the company and the SEC. “Although the public had a right to expect

that firms like Lehman were being regulated in a meaningful way, in reality, they were not,” Valukas told lawmakers. Regulators, he said, missed opportunities to alter Lehman’s conduct “before its situation had reached the point of no return.” In his report last month, Valukas disclosed that Lehman put together complex transactions that allowed the firm to sell securities — mainly those made up of mortgages — at the end of a quarter. That wiped them off its balance sheet, avoiding the scrutiny of regulators and shareholders. Then the bank quickly repurchased them — hence the term “repo.” Valukas’ report reached no conclusion on whether executives violated securities laws. But it did suggest there may be enough evidence to support civil damages in a trial. Two lawmakers testified at the hearing that Lehman’s meltdown cost school districts, local governments and hospitals millions, forcing them to make cutbacks. Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., said 40 municipalities nationwide lost around $1.7 billion after the firm went under. She is introducing legislation that would require the federal government to compensate those governments. Eshoo said San Mateo County, which is in her district, lost $155 million. Another lawmaker said numerous governments and hospitals in his state suffered huge losses.

New bank tax picks up support in Congress WASHINGTON (AP) — A new tax on large banks is picking up support in Congress as Democrats target financial institutions that benefited from the Wall Street bailout to help pay for their jobs program and other election-year initiatives. One senator, Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Tuesday he wants to include the bank tax in a bill stiffening financial regulations, an idea rejected by Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd, D-Conn. Including the bank tax in the financial regulations bill could make it harder to get Republican support because GOP lawmakers have generally opposed the tax. Republican leaders appeared Tuesday to soften their opposition to the financial overhaul bill, praising bipartisan negotiations that continue to take place. And President Barack Obama telephoned newly elected GOP Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts seeking support for the measure.

Court strikes down law on animal cruelty videos WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court, with only one dissenting vote, on Tuesday struck down a federal ban on videos that show graphic violence against animals. The ruling cheered free speech advocates, but it raised concerns that more animals will be harmed. The justices threw out the criminal conviction of Robert Stevens of Pittsville, Va., who was sentenced to three years in prison for videos he made about pit

bull fights. The law was enacted in 1999 to limit Internet sales of so-called crush videos, which appeal to a certain sexual fetish by showing women crushing to death small animals with their bare feet or high-heeled shoes. The videos virtually disappeared once the measure became law, the government argued. The Bush administration used the law for the first time when it indicted Stevens in 2004. All 50 states have laws against animal cruelty, but the federal statute targeted the videos because it has been difficult to prosecute people who take part in violence against animals with a camera rolling, but not showing their faces.

Testimony starts at trial in Palin e-mail hacking KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A roommate of an ex-college student charged with hacking Sarah Palin’s e-mail account testified that the accused man didn’t believe in what Palin wanted to do when she was running for vice president in 2008. Twenty-two-year-old David Kernell’s attorney told a federal jury seated Tuesday that his client had no criminal intent and guessed his way into her personal e-mail. However, Kernell’s former college roommate gave his testimony to open the trial in Knoxville. Palin has been subpoenaed to testify and Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Weddle said in court for the first time that Palin’s husband, Todd Palin, and their daughter, Bristol, are also potential witnesses. Prosecutors have not said when the former Alaska governor or any other witnesses will take the stand.

Michael Douglasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; son gets 5 years By TOM HAYS Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A judge sentenced Michael Douglasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; son on drug charges to five years in prison Tuesday, calling it his â&#x20AC;&#x153;last chance to make it.â&#x20AC;? U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman announced the sentence after hearing 31-yearold Cameron Douglas apologize with his father in court, admitting that he had squandered a lot of opportunities to turn his life around. Early in a sentencing hearing that stretched more than an hour, the judge said he was not confident that Douglas would turn his back on drugs after pleading guilty in January to charges that he dealt large quantities of methamphetamine and cocaine. He noted that he had read at least 37 letters from family, friends and supporters who â&#x20AC;&#x153;believe he has finally bottomed out in terms of his addiction and may be ready to turn his life around.â&#x20AC;? Berman, though, said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my estimation, that will be a very difficult chore. I think this case and this sentencing may well be his last chance to make it.â&#x20AC;?

Michael Douglas exits Manhattan federal court following the sentencing of his son Cameron Douglas, Tuesday. A charge of conspiracy to distribute drugs carried a mandatory 10 years in prison, but the judge said the government had agreed that Douglas qualified for a lesser sentence. It had been revealed at a pretrial hearing that Douglas had tried to cooperate. Berman said letters written on Cameronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behalf failed to note the damage drugs do to society. Berman described how Douglas had abused drugs since age 13 and noted that he had been sober in prison since last August, his longest drug-free stint since his

teenage years. The sentence was a rejection of a request by the defense that Douglas be sentenced to time served or, at most, three and a half years in prison. When given a chance to speak, Douglas said he had missed seeing how valuable were opportunities to overcome his addiction to heroin earlier in life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a result, I squandered a lot of them,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I should be so fortunate as to have another chance, I will never squander that opportunity.â&#x20AC;? He said he felt the full

support of his family for the first time in his life and missed â&#x20AC;&#x153;so dearly being involved in my true passion in life ... which is being an entertainer, putting a smile on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faces.â&#x20AC;? Prior to the sentencing, Academy Award winning actor Michael Douglas cited in a handwritten letter Cameronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s childhood in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bad marriageâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;the pressure of finding your own identity with a famous father.â&#x20AC;?

New charge filed in Stamos extortion case MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Federal prosecutors in Michiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Upper Peninsula have filed a fresh criminal charge against two people accused of trying to extort money from acStamos tor John Stamos. Scott Sippola and Allison Coss are charged with using interstate commerce to make the threat. It was filed Monday as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;felony information,â&#x20AC;? which means a guilty plea is likely. Sippola and Coss are accused of threatening to sell photos of Stamos unless he paid them $680,000. They were arrested in December at an airport near Marquette. At the time, Stamosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spokesman said there was nothing embarrassing about the images. Stamos met Coss in Florida in 2004 and attended a party where photos were taken. Messages seeking comment were left with the prosecutor and defense lawyers Tuesday.

Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Niqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother admits he molested her CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The brother of Oscar winner Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nique said Monday on Oprah Winfreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk show that he molested the actress when they were children and he wants to apologize to her. Gerald Imes said on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Oprah Winfrey Showâ&#x20AC;? that the molestation continued for a year or two, MoĘźNique starting when he was 13 and Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nique was 7 or 8. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I abused and betrayed the trust of another sibling, my sister, my blood sister,â&#x20AC;? Imes said. He apologized to the actress, saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry, Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nique. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry.â&#x20AC;? Imes said he decided to appear on Winfreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show to apologize to Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nique and bring their family back together. Imes said he himself was molested and he was using drugs and alcohol at age 11. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully somewhere, somehow as siblings we can come back together as brother and sister,â&#x20AC;? he said. Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nique has discussed her brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s molestation in previous interviews. She hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t responded to a request for comment sent to her publicist. Winfrey said Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nique didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be a part of the interview but gave Winfrey her blessing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She said if your expressing what you had done to her could save one family then it would be worth it,â&#x20AC;? Winfrey told Imes. Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Niqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents also appeared on the episode. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was such a heartbreaking thing to accept,â&#x20AC;? said her mother, Alice Imes.

Flights resume across Europe

LONDON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Europeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busiest airport reopened Tuesday as air traffic across the continent lurched back to life. But the gridlock created by Icelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volcanic ash plume was far from over: Officials said it would be weeks before all stranded travelers could be brought home. Passengers wept with relief as flights took off from Parisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Charles de Gaulle Airport, Amsterdam and elsewhere. A jetliner from Vancouver, British Columbia, was the first to land at Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heathrow airport, the continentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busiest, since the volcano erupted last week. British Airways said it expected about two dozen flights from the United States, Africa and Asia to land by early Wednesday. Travelers cheered as the first European flights took off. Jenny Lynn Cohen, waiting at Charles de Gaulle to travel to San Francisco, had a boarding pass but could hardly believe she was going to fly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a little afraid â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I am hopeful that the plane will take off, and that it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet with any volcanic ash,â&#x20AC;? she said. Chris James, arriving at Heathrow from Mauritius, told the British Broadcasting Corp. that passengers on his flight didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know they would land in Lon-

alcolm McNiven and son Luke, from Scotland, show off their boarding passes for their Virgin Atlantic flight due to take off Monday evening at Orlando, Fla international airport. don until 45 minutes before their plane touched down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Initially it was quite a stressful situation, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what was happening,â&#x20AC;? James said. The Eurocontrol air traffic agency said it expected just under half of the 27,500 flights over Europe to go ahead Tuesday, a marked improvement over the last few days. The agency predicted close to normal takeoffs by Friday. It was the first day since the April 14 eruption of Icelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eyjafjallajokull (ay-yah-FYAH-lah-yerkuhl) volcano â&#x20AC;&#x201D; dormant for nearly 200 years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that travelers were

given a reason for hope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The situation today is much improved,â&#x20AC;? said Brian Flynn, deputy head of operations at the Brussels-based agency. Conditions changed fast. Airspace in Germany remained officially closed, but about 800 flights were allowed at low altitude. Rita and Peter Meyer said they had to share a hotel room with two strangers in Singapore while waiting to find a way home to Germany. News that they could fly to Frankfurt airport came as they slept. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just after midnight â&#x20AC;&#x201D; after an hourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sleep â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the phone rang (and they said), â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Everyone

downstairs, get in taxis to the airport,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Rita Meyer said. But with more than 95,000 flights canceled in the last week alone, airlines faced the enormous task of working through the backlog to get passengers where they want to go â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a challenge that could take days or even weeks. Passengers with current tickets were being given priority; those who had been stranded for days were told to either buy a new ticket or take their chances using the old one â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a wait that could be days or weeks for the next available seat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once your flightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s canceled, you go to the back of the queue,â&#x20AC;? said Laurie Price, director of aviation strategy at consultant Mott Macdonald, who was stranded in Halifax, Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems intrinsically unfair.â&#x20AC;? The volcano that prompted the turmoil continued to rumble. Tremors could be heard and felt as far as 15 miles (25 kilometers) from the crater.

Al-Qaida killings boost Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prime minister

9 companies win bid for huge Amazon dam

BAGHDAD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has gotten a much-needed boost from the killings of two al-Qaida leaders and a court-ordered recount of some votes from the indecisive election at a time when he is fighting for his political life. Even rival politicians acknowledge the joint U.S.Iraqi operation Sunday that killed the al-Qaida leaders was a significant achievement for a prime minister who has seen his reputation for bringing stability to the country tarnished by a string of bombings in central Baghdad that have killed hundreds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Maliki is saying is that â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sliding into civil war and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the man thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preventing that,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Toby Dodge, an analyst with the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London. Al-Maliki is keen to burnish his image as the leader who can secure Iraq, especially at a time when U.S. troops are preparing to go home. He called a news conference Monday to announce the killings of al-Qaida in Iraq leaders Abu Omar al-Baghdadi and Abu Ayyub al-Masri in an attack on their safe house near Saddam Husseinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hometown of Tikrit.

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Authorities say a consortium of nine companies has won the rights for one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest hydroelectric dam projects. Brazilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electricity regulator Aneel says the Norte Energia consortium won the bidding process for the huge Amazon dam which is heavily opposed by environmentalists, Indians and the director of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Avatar.â&#x20AC;? The consortium is led by state-controlled Companhia Hidro Eletrica do Sao Francisco.

OCHOA SURPRISINGLY RETIRES FROM GOLF MEXICO CITY (AP) — Lorena Ochoa is retiring, just as Annika Sorenstam did two years ago, leaving the struggling LPGA Tour without its No. 1 player again and depriving the sport of one of its great ambassadors. Ochoa, probably the bestknown athlete in Mexico who is not a soccer player, announced her surprise decision Tuesday and will discuss her plans Friday. The 28-year-old Mexican got married last year, setting off speculation she might be putting golf aside to raise a family. She has been No. 1 in the world the last three years and won 27 times over the last six. “Lorena Ochoa confirms her retirement from the LPGA, as news reports in some media have said today,” her statement said. “The reasons and more details on the matter will be given by Lorena personally in a press conference on Friday in Mexico City. Lorena will share this news of a new stage in her life with her sponsors, family members and friends.”

SANFORD — The college football season ended five months ago, but it’s not stopping Mike Stryffeler from winning more postseason awards.

The former Lee County quarterback and current Campbell tight end was named First Team Academic All-Pioneer Football League when the awards were announced on Tuesday afternoon in St. Louis. Stryffeler Stryffeler, who is a redshirt junior for the Camels, was also named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-Dictrict 3 Football University Division first team by the College Sports

Information Directors of America earlier this year. Back in November, Stryffeler was named to the league’s Academic Honor Roll for the second time in his career. “It feels great being awarded for something that you’re expected to do,” said Stryffeler. “As a student-athlete, you’re expected to do well in the classroom. But it is a special thing for me and for this program. I’m honored to receive this award. It feels great to have my name up there.”

NFL FAVRE, CHILDRESS IN CONTACT; NO WORD YET

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings are still waiting for an announcement from Brett Favre about his status for next season, even though coach Brad Childress has been in regular communication with him. Childress said Tuesday he had spoken with Favre the day before, when the 40-year-old quarterback told him he was “spraying weeds” at his home in Mississippi. Childress added that he followed up the conversation by sending Favre a cellphone picture from Vikings headquarters to show off the recent warm, sunny weather in Minnesota.

MLB REDS’ VOLQUEZ SUSPENDED 50 GAMES

CINCINNATI (AP) — Former All-Star pitcher Edinson Volquez of the Cincinnati Reds was suspended 50 games Tuesday following a positive test for a performance-enhancing drug. Volquez is the first player suspended under Major League Baseball’s drug program since Manny Ramirez of the Los Angeles Dodgers was penalized 50 games last May. Volquez’s suspension will go into effect Wednesday. The 26-year-old right-hander was already out of action — he’s recovering from reconstructive surgery on his elbow and was expected to rejoin the Reds around midseason. An All-Star in 2008 when he went 17-6 with a 3.21 ERA for the Reds, Volquez was 4-2 with a 4.35 ERA last season before feeling pain in his arm in June. He twice went on the disabled list, the first time with back spasms and then with the elbow injury that finished his season.

DURHAM — Kyle Singler is living one dream and has decided to wait another year before pursuing his next as a professional basketball player. Singler was joined by Coach Mike Krzyzewski at a news conference Tuesday at Cameron Indoor Singler Stadium after his decision to stay in school was announced late Monday night. He cited numerous reasons for remaining at Duke, among them were his love for playing with the Blue Devils, his desire to improve as a player and to enjoy the trappings of his senior season. “I couldn’t go wrong with either decision,” Singler said. “Because of that, the pressure was lighter. Making my decision to come back to school was pretty easy.” Krzyzewski agreed that there was no wrong answer, stressing that Singler’s decision to remain at Duke should be viewed as a continuation of a great career rather than merely coming back. “We’re pleased that he’ll be playing next year for Duke University,” Krzyzewski said. “I don’t like the [phrase] ‘coming back’ because it’s like he left. He’s never left. He’s just decided to continue. “It’s not about returning. It’s continuing, which I think is a great statement. I’m proud of him, but I’d be proud of him whichever way he wanted to go.” Singler said he approached the decision without predetermining his desires and looking for reasons to change his mind. “I left it kind of open,” Singler said. “I wanted to get information from Coach [Krzyzewski] and my parents about both decisions.” Singler said he finally made up is mind to remain at Duke over the weekend. He said neither his potential draft positioning nor the possibility of an NBA lockout after the 2010-11 season played a role in decision. “I didn’t want to base my decision just off that,” Singler said. “I wanted to base my decision on whether I liked being in school, if I

IN THE DRAFT

SPORTS SCENE

Rich get richer in NASCAR F or years the NCAA has wanted parity in their championship series. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if it is football, basketball or baseball â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they want every team to have the same opportunity as another. Thus they expand the tournament fields to include most everyone. There is even talk of the basketball tournament expanding to somehting like 96 teams. Heck, why not invite all of them? For parity sake this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball tournament was one of the most successful. Anybody could have won on any given night and almost did. If Butler had beaten Duke, then this tournament would have been filled with a lot of games that would have been called upsets. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Butler winning would have been an upset, but it would have just been their night. Well, for the last few years NASCAR has preached parity in the number of teams that can be owned under one umbrella. Last week when Rick Hendrick signed Kasey Kahne to a contract it was just further evidence that the rich get richer and that the rule for one owner having four teams is bogus. First of all, I believe the signing was a huge

plus for Hendrick and for Kahne. Both are going to benefit, and I imagine it will be Hendrick more than Kahne. The one thing I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like is that it appears it will leave Mark Martin looking for a ride. Or will it? Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract is scheduled to be up at the end of the 2011 season. Of course Jeff Gordon signed a lifetime deal while Jimmie Johnson is locked up until 2015. The wild card in this scenario is Dale Earnhardt Jr. I am not so sure that Kahne wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t replace him. Why in the world would Hendrick let that happen? He is making a ton of money from Juniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s souvenirs, so I must be crazy. Maybe, but maybe not. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s look at this fourteam rule. Yes, there are four under the Hendrick name, but how many more does he control? Tony Stewart is the owner on paper, but we know that

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that clear cut. Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Junior field a team just like Stewart has done and put it in the same situation as Stewart? He can, and that is why he is the wild card. As long as NASCAR turns their heads and lets someone like Rick Hendrick exercise his gray rule-bending ways then there will never be parity in NASCAR. It will continue to be dominated by one, two or maybe three owners. And that ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t good for the sport. We have seen what the NCAA did to basketball, and that is why it is exciting again. That particular tournament has become the one time when we all stop what we are doing and remember where we were when the games are over. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that with NASCAR now and I never will again if the rich continue to dominate the sport. I write this on an evening after I have witnessed a â&#x20AC;&#x153;lesserâ&#x20AC;? team defeat the Hendrick juggernaut. Now, Joe Gibbs Racing is nothing to sneeze at, but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, they do more with less than most of the teams. So congratulations to Denny Hamlin. I like it when the proverbial underdog defeats the favorite. I just wish Butler had beaten Duke! But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all of the

Drivers pleased with tire tests at Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tony Stewart savored Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homecoming. His tires worked properly in testing, Indianapolisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; oval absorbed the rubber like it should have and the two-time Cup champ even worked in a few one-liners about Kyle Busch. No complaints, here. After spending the morning on the 2.5-mile oval, Stewart and Busch again gave Goodyearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tires high marks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a sign that that the manufacturer has found a solution to the problems that plagued the Brickyard 400 two years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been pretty uneventful this morning. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already putting rubber down on the track and in the past thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a problem,â&#x20AC;? Stewart said during a lunch break. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, everything seems to be pretty normal. The tire they brought here last year was no drama, and I think it will be that way again.â&#x20AC;?

Carolina fans feel that way? See you after the big one! I hope you know what I mean because, after all, we are at Talladega.

Carolina Panthers

The Sanford Herald / Wednesday, April 21, 2010 / 3B

Panthers open against Giants

CHARLOTTE (AP) — After routing the New York Giants in the last game at their old stadium, the Panthers will be their opponent again for the first regular-season game in their expensive new home. Carolina’s 2010 schedule also includes an early visit by Julius Peppers, and four of the final six games on the road, highlighted by a nationally televised Thursday game at Pittsburgh. The 16-game schedule released Tuesday night sends the Panthers to East Rutherford, N.J., for the opener against the Giants on Sept. 12. It’ll be the first NFL game that counts in the $1.6 billion Meadowlands Stadium, which will also be home to the Jets. The Panthers beat the Giants 41-9 in their final game at Giants Stadium in December. Carolina, which opens on the road for the third time in four seasons, will play the next two weeks at home against NFC South rival Tampa Bay and Cincinnati. After a visit to Super Bowl champion New Orleans on Oct. 3, the most anticipated visit to Charlotte by an opposing player happens on Oct. 10. Peppers, the five-time Pro Bowl defensive end who bolted Carolina in free agency, will come to Bank of America Stadium with the Chicago Bears. The Panthers will then have their bye the

The Carolina Panthers are without a first-round pick and are not likely to trade into the draft’s opening round.

following Sunday in Week 6. The Panthers would be wise to get off to a quick start, because the Panthers won’t be home much the final month of the season. After visiting Cleveland on Nov. 28 and Seattle a week later, the Panthers host Atlanta on Dec. 12 and Arizona a week later. Just four days later, the Panthers visit the Steelers on Dec. 23 in a game that will be televised by NFL Network. The regular-season finale is also on the road, when the Panthers face the Falcons on Jan. 2 for the second time in four games. “We will have a young team and opening against the Giants on the road will be an exciting challenge,” coach John Fox said in a statement. “So much can change during the course of a season that it’s difficult to say how a schedule will play out, but it is good to know the flow of how the games are scheduled.” Thanks in part to playing the relatively weak NFC West, Carolina’s schedule is softer compared to last season, when it had the secondtoughest slate based on the previous season’s records. The Panthers’ opponents had a cumulative record of 122-134 in 2009, making the schedule the sixth easiest out of 32 teams.

Panthers likely to stay put CHARLOTTE (AP) — The lights will be on in the Carolina Panthers’ war room on Thursday night. The seats will be filled, the phones will be in use and the draft board will get tweaked. They just probably won’t get to participate in the NFL draft until a day later. Despite their history of bold, draftday deals, general manager Marty Hurney doesn’t expect the Panthers to trade into the first round this year. “You never know, but I’d say it’s probably unlikely,” Hurney said Tuesday. “It would probably be very hard to do. I don’t think you ever want to cross anything off, but obviously I think it would be hard.” The Panthers dealt this year’s firstround pick to San Francisco a year ago to take defensive end Everette Brown in the second round. The Panthers traded a future first-round pick in 2008, too, to get another first so they could take starting right tackle Jeff Otah. With urgent holes at defensive

asked about his future, but declined to say if he’s been offered or signed an extension. “I figure if I do my job I’ll here and if I don’t I won’t,” Hurney said. “I’ve never been one to worry about that stuff. I’m more worried about who we get in the second round.” Hurney is also trying to get his restricted free agents under contract. He said linebacker Thomas Davis and cornerback Richard Marshall are the final two who haven’t signed their tenders. Marshall, who received only the second-round tender worth $1.759 million, hasn’t participated in the team’s offseason conditioning program. When asked if Marshall would attend next week’s minicamp, Hurney replied “I’m assuming so.” Marshall wouldn’t be required to participate and couldn’t be fined if he hasn’t signed his one-year deal. But the No. 1 priority for Hurney now is filling holes in the draft.

end and receiver, the Panthers would seemingly want a first-round pick to get an immediate impact player. But with a draft Hurney calls deep in the first three rounds, Carolina isn’t interested in surrendering numerous late-round picks to move up. If they stand pat, the Panthers wouldn’t choose until the second round and 48th overall on Friday night. Carolina also has a third-round selection on the second day. The final four rounds are Saturday, with the Panthers holding six picks. “I think you’d like as many picks as you can have,” Hurney said. “We’re always open-minded to anything, but I think it’s going to be hard to give up draft picks.” The draft comes amid uncertainty with the Panthers, who have spent the offseason shedding veterans while coach John Fox prepares to enter the final year of his contract. Hurney’s contract also is scheduled to run out in June, but he appears safe. Hurney replied “I’m good” when

Brown: Magic not taking ’Cats ‘seriously’

SPORTS BRIEFS Rams trade former No. 1 pick Carriker to Redskins

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Washington Redskins have acquired former first-round pick Adam Carriker from the St. Louis Rams in an extremely low-cost deal that provides an option along the defensive line if Albert Haynesworth is traded. The Redskins got a great price Tuesday for the 13th overall pick in 2007. They swapped fifth-round picks with the Rams, moving down 28 spots in that round, but in a swap of seventh-rounders Washington actually moved up three spots.

Big 12 commish: No word on expansion

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe says he is not expecting the Big Ten to notify him this week that it will be pursuing his members as part of a plan to expand. Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said in December the league will explore options for expansion in the next 12 to 18 months. Several Big 12 schools have been speculated to be targets, including Missouri and Texas. Beebe said Tuesday he expects to be first to know if the Big Ten decides to make a bid for one of his member schools. He also said that he believes the Big Ten’s timetable to decide on whether to expand has not changed.

AP source: Jets, Taylor agree to deal

NEW YORK (AP) — A person familiar with the deal tells The AP that the New

York Jets and linebacker Jason Taylor have agreed to terms on a contract. Taylor has played 12 of his 13 seasons with the AFC East-rival Miami Dolphins. He will provide a pass-rushing presence for the team that ranked No. 1 in overall defense last season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the team had not yet announced the signing.

Patriots sign veteran WR Holt FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots have signed veteran wide receiver Torry Holt, a seventime Pro Bowl selection who played last season with Jacksonville. Terms of the contract announced Tuesday were not disclosed. Holt had 51 catches for 772 yards in 15 games last season, which included 12 starts. He also spent 10 seasons with the St. Louis Rams, where he set a rookie record with seven receptions and 109 yards receiving in their 1999 Super Bowl win over Tennessee.

Blazers sign Camby to 2-year extension PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Marcus Camby has signed a two-year contract extension with the Portland Trail Blazers. Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed Tuesday. The 6-11, 235-pound center was acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers on Feb. 16 in exchange for Travis Outlaw and Steve Blake.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Charlotte Bobcats coach Larry Brown assembled his team for practice Tuesday, delivering a fiery message to his players. “Yesterday, Orlando took the day off,” Brown said. “That’s how ... seriously they’re taking us.” Brown and the Bobcats are looking for the franchise’s first playoff victory. And he is making sure they’re willing to work for it. While the Magic didn’t officially practice Monday, most players worked out at the team’s facility. Charlotte had organized team practices during both off days, searching for any means necessary to even the series. Game 2 is on Wednesday night. Charlotte swingman Gerald Wallace went out of his way for the second straight day to make sure it was known his team is not intimidated by the Magic’s Dwight Howard, who blocked nine shots in the opener and won the NBA’s defensive player of the year award for the two years in a row Wednesday. “Dwight’s going to be Dwight,” Wallace said. “We can’t treat him like he’s Michael Jordan.” The Magic are expecting so much. But they do want more from their star duo. The Howard-Vince Carter pairing fell flat in its playoff debut offensively. Howard had five points and seven rebounds; Carter had 12 points on 4 for 19 shooting. Both attributed the poor showing to being too hyped

“I think our texting back and forth kind of got us a little excited, just because we want it so bad and we want to do it for our team,” Carter added. “It’s like I told him, ’I’m not going to let you stand out there by yourself. And we’re going to all do it with you, and we’re going to all do it together.’ I think that confidence that your team is behind you can get you excited. “I’ll tell you, it can get me excited.”

up. Howard was texting and calling Carter in the middle of the night before the opener, admitting later he was overanxious. The two have since talked privately about controlling their emotions, knowing they’ll need to produce more if the Magic want to compete for a title. No more late-night chats before games, either. “I try to sleep some times,” Carter said, laughing.

Charlotte Bobcats center Tyson Chandler, right, wraps his arms around Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard to prevent him from shooting during the second half of Game 1 in the first round of the NBA basketball playoffs in Orlando, Fla., Sunday.

The concern for the Bobcats: they still lost despite shutting down the Magic’s powerful one-two punch. Point guard Jameer Nelson shredded Charlotte’s backcourt, scoring 24 of his 32 points in the first half. The Magic built a 22-point lead, and only sputtered in the second half with Howard in foul trouble. “Our big guys were so worried about Dwight Howard, that they forgot to help the guards,” Wallace said. Charlotte also might be a little banged up. Stephen Jackson is expected to start despite hyperextending his left knee in Game 1. He said he won’t wear any kind of brace around the knee, and doesn’t expect the injury to hamper his mobility too much. “It’s not concerning. We know we can beat these guys. We can play with anybody,” Jackson said. “We feel like we can matchup and guard anybody. Last time, the mismatches kind of got us out of rhythm. We switched so much. I think this next game we won’t switch so much.” Maybe the extra practice will help, too.

Conference expansion a hot topic of discussion

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Since Jim Delany put the college football world on notice by announcing the Big Ten would explore the possibility of expansion, speculation about which schools might be changing leagues has been rampant. Delany, the leader of the most lucrative conference in college sports, has remained mostly mum on the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans since his December statement. On Wednesday, Delany plans to take questions from reporters at a swanky Arizona resort hotel where college footballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power brokers are gathered this week for Bowl Championship Series meetings. Maybe heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll provide some insight into where the Big Ten stands in a process that he initially said would take 12 to 18 months. Or maybe not. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little doubt the topic of expansion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Pac-10 has also said it is looking into adding schools â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will be discussed, at least informally, among the commissioners of the 11 major conferences and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick over the next few days. If the Big Ten decides to grow from its current 11 members in an effort to expand the reach of its lucrative television network and create even more revenue with a conference championship game, it could create a

massive domino effect across college football. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why everyone from fans to commissioners is curious â&#x20AC;&#x201D; maybe even anxious â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to find out what the Big Ten will do. Add one team? Maybe three? How about five to become a 16-team conference? But Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe said Tuesday he does not expect to hear anything definitive during these meetings, which run through Thursday. Several Big 12 schools have been speculated to be on the Big Tenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most wanted list, including Texas, Nebraska and Missouri. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I expect that Jim, who I have known for many, many years and trust implicitly, that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do what he said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to do,â&#x20AC;? Beebe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If and when the time comes that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do anything â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and if that includes any of the institutions in the Big 12 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let me know first.â&#x20AC;? The Chicago Tribune reported last weekend the Big Ten was discussing accelerating its timetable for a decision on expansion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My understanding is that his timetable hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed, in spite of the media speculation that there was activity going on,â&#x20AC;? Beebe said. The other schools that have been talked about as possible Big Ten tar-

to make decisions based on fear, whether it be in recruiting or in these situations. The NBA canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to have a lockout. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford not to play.â&#x20AC;? Krzyzewski, who is in contact with various NBA teams because of his position with USA Basketball, said it was evident from those conversations that Singler likely was going to be a mid to late first-round

gets are mostly in the Big East. Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Syracuse all fit the profile athletically and academically. Rutgers and Syracuse, in theory, could help the Big Ten grab hold of the New York television market. For the Big East, which withstood losing Miami, Boston College and Virginia Tech to the Atlantic Coast Conference in the last round of conference realignment, losing even one team would sting. Losing two or more members could make it difficult for Big East football to survive. And then there is Notre Dame. The Big Ten has tried unsuccessfully before to persuade the Fighting Irish to give up their football independence. Swarbrick has said staying independent is Notre Dameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 1 priority. But the person who matters most in what has become college footballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great offseason soap opera is Delany. On a typically warm and sunny Tuesday in the desert, he was relaxing with a couple of other college football big shots in the garden of the Royal Palms Resort and Spa before lunch and several hours of meetings. He exchanged a couple pleasantries with reporters, but quickly ended the conversation before it started with a promise to see them tomorrow. So stay tuned.

pick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an amazing guy to coach,â&#x20AC;? Krzyzewski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a proponent of testing the waters. If you make the decision to go, then you should go. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot like recruiting. You gather information and you try to help all parties involved understand it and make sure it is as correct as you can. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were fine with whatever Kyle wants to do.

That was from the get-go. I think we had really good information. If he did go, I think he would be successful. But it is a matter of how you want to go. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy. In Kyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, when he decided to come to Duke, he told me it was his dream to come to Duke. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s postponing a dream, I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fulfilling one dream before he gets into another one.â&#x20AC;?

Stryffeler, an exercise and sports science major with a 3.74 GPA, was also named second team All-PFL at the end of the season. He started all 11 games for the Camels, who finished 3-8 in 2009. His 29 catches led the league among tight ends and he was second on the team with 355 receiving yards. He also pulled in a pair of touchdown catches. As the only offensive member of the Camels on the first team All-Academic squad, Stryffeler hopes that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s setting the bar high for future members of the relatively young Campbell program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anytime you win an academic honor, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a special feeling,â&#x20AC;? said Stryffeler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It says good things about you as an individual and about the program as a whole. I hope that I can start a trend and that more and more athletes at Campbell can earn these kinds of honors.â&#x20AC;? Stryffeler is joined by teammate Charles Fiore, a Kernersville native. Fiore, a defensive tackle, was named to the defensive first team for the second time in his career, becoming the fifth PFL player to accomplish that feat. Fiore is a religion major with a 3.47 GPA and has been named to the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Academic Honor Roll in each of the last two seasons. Like Stryffeler, Fiore was also named to the ESPN the Magazine/ Academic All-District 3 Football University Division first team. Quarterback Daniel Polk was a second team selection for the first time in his career. The redshirt junior is a psychology major and holds a 3.08 GPA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both of those guys deserved it,â&#x20AC;? said Stryffeler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked so hard both on the field and in the classroom. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

be happier for those guys. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re definitely deserving. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ecstatic for both of them.â&#x20AC;? As a school, Dayton had the most players named to the offensive and defensive first and second teams with 12, followed by Drake and Marist with nine each. Butler had eight and San Diego had five. The Camels just concluded the annual Orange/White Spring Game at Barker Lane Stadium. Stryffeler hauled in three catches for 43 yards to help lead the offense to a 35-27 victory. Based on what he saw from the spring game and in spring workouts, Stryffeler feels that the 2010 Camels can be more successful than 2009â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad that finished 3-8 overall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have what it takes to be successful,â&#x20AC;? said Stryffeler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a good group of guys coming back and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got more senior leadership on this team than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in the past. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confident that we can come out and have a good year. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve definitely got the talent to do it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to getting it started.â&#x20AC;? The 2010 season will kick off on Sept. 4 when the Camels travel to play Virginia Wise. Stryffeler says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still going to be just as determined as ever this next year and if more awards come, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be satisfied. However, being all about the team, Stryffeler would rather see the program be successful than himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My main goal is to help make this team better, make my teammates better and make this program better,â&#x20AC;? said Stryffeler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the awards come, then great. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to work just as hard as I have been this next year. If I feel like the program is better at the end of the season, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll still be proud regardless of how many awards I earn.â&#x20AC;?

Your numbers are 5, 13, 16, 21, 28, 30, 48 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Look for competitive activities that will allow you to blow off steam. You don’t want to leave yourself open for an argument with someone who has a different idea on how you should live your life. The less interaction you have with others, the better. 2 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Expect to face some trouble at home if you decide to argue a moot point. Let everyone be and do as they please and you will all get far more accomplished. A love relationship can take on new meaning if you change your attitude. 4 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Make sure what you say is what you mean because you will be held accountable. You may want change but be careful what you wish for, especially if your plans involve other people. You are far better off working on your own. 3 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): Put your efforts into work, finding work or discovering ways to put your talents, skills and craftsmanship to work for you. Making money must be your concern and, doing so in a unique way, will satisfy you emotionally as well.

DEAR ABBY: I think my husband may be a cross-dresser. Last night while “Roland” and I were cuddling in bed, I felt his legs and they were smoother than mine. I asked him why he keeps shaving his legs and stomach, and then it dawned on me. Roland has sent me e-mails hinting about dressing up. One year, he purchased a pair of high heels, saying he wanted to dress up like a woman. I examined them the other day and there is evidence that they have been worn more than once. My lingerie drawer is sometimes a mess, and sometimes my clothes are a bit out of place. I believe my husband dresses up while I’m out of town on business trips. I’d kind of like to see him dressed up, but I’m afraid he might look sexier than me. Lately Roland has been asking me if he can join me when I go shopping for clothes. He does chores around the house (vacuuming, ironing, dishes), and if he enjoys cross-dressing, I say he can wear any outfit he wants. How can I tell him I know what he’s doing? — WISE TO HIM IN FORT WORTH DEAR WISE TO HIM: The next time the two of you cuddle up in bed, tell Roland you have been thinking about the e-mail he sent you regarding dressing up, that it’s OK with you, and you think you might enjoy seeing him that way. It’s a non-threatening way to get the message across. But please remember that not

until I learn to laugh about it. Any suggestions? — EMBARRASSED IN ANAHEIM DEAR EMBARRASSED: Just this: What’s going on is not “normal” and it’s no laughing matter. Tell your boyfriend that the next time he calls you a whore or a liar, he is history. And stand by your word, unless you want to spend the rest of your life with a racist who has a sadistic sense of humor and no respect for your feelings.

all men who shave their body hair are cross-dressers. And if your husband has been doing the ironing — and the washing that would naturally precede it — your clothes may not have been the way you left them because he put them away. As to him accompanying you shopping, plenty of non-cross-dressers shop with their wives — and some of them have better taste than the women. o DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend will not let go of my past. I didn’t level with him about a couple of relationships because I knew he was a racist. He found out, and now all I get is teasing and comments almost every day. If he sees a talk show about a liar, he says, “Oh! There you are!” It’s the same if the subject is a whore. What he’s doing is hurting me. Is this normal behavior? Am I supposed to ignore him? I have asked him to stop, but he says he won’t

o DEAR ABBY: How do I tell a friend of many years that the wig she wears is not flattering? We’re nearly 80, and the wig is black and falls past her shoulders. Her hair was dark when she was young, but now the color looks harsh. She started wearing the wig because it was too much trouble to go to the hairdresser every week. Something shorter and lighter in color would look much better. My friend can be vain about her appearance. How do I enlighten her without hurting her feelings? — CARING FRIEND IN OHIO DEAR CARING FRIEND: Here’s what I’d do. With the understanding that it’s affordable, I would suggest to my friend that “for kicks” the two of us “girls” go out for a makeup and hair makeover — and let a professional broach the subject. If she declined the invitation, I’d keep my mouth firmly shut. And that’s what I’d recommend to you.

Crocodile forces Australian aerobics class to wait

Woman, 89, grabs handgun and fires at intruder

SYDNEY (AP) — The biweekly water aerobics class at a holiday park in northern Australia was postponed Tuesday when an unwanted guest entered the pool — a 5-foot-long (1.5-meter) crocodile. Workers at the Howard Springs Holiday Park on the outskirts of the tropical northern city of Darwin went to the pool to scoop out leaves and otherwise prepare it for the class when they were surprised to find the croc, which had apparently crawled under a fence from a nearby swamp. “We went down like normal to check the pool out because Tuesdays and Thursdays the local ladies of Howard Springs do their water aerobics,” park manager Geoff Thompson was quoted as saying on the Australian Broadcasting Corp.’s website. A government ranger was summoned to remove the visitor, which was identified as a freshwater crocodile — generally considered to be capable of giving a nasty bite but rarely fatal to humans. “They were all there waiting for the ranger to collect it and once he got it out of the water they started their aerobics,” Thompson said. The crocodile was likely to be handed to a local wildlife park. Crocodile numbers have burgeoned in northern Australia since hunting that pushed the animal almost to extinction was banned in 1971. Attacks on humans have increased, with four people killed by crocodiles in seven months from 2008 to early 2009.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — An elderly Des Moines woman used a handgun to ward off a man who bashed in the front door of her home. Beatrice Turner said the man pounded on her door early Tuesday. Despite being told he had the wrong house, the man used his fists to break through the wood door. The 89-year-old Turner said she grabbed a handgun and told the man she would shoot if he came inside. When the man entered, she fired a single shot. A neighbor called police, who found 37-year old Nelson McAlpine standing on Turner’s front lawn. The uninjured McAlpine was arrested on a charge of seconddegree burglary.

Cleanup crew finds prosthetic leg along Pa. river SHARON, Pa. (AP) — One item stood out when a cleanup crew gathered 21 tons of trash from the banks of the Shenango River in western Pennsylvania: a prosthetic leg with a shoe still attached. The Shenango River Watchers have been cleaning up near the river since the group was founded nine years ago. Cofounder Rick Barborak said crews have found a few unusual items over the years, including a concrete lawn duck the group has kept as a mascot, “Scrappy the Duck.” But the leg found Saturday in Sharon is one of the most unusual items.

Heaven is as real as the earth Q: How do you know heaven is real? I’d like to think it is, and my mother looked forward to going there when she died, but maybe heaven is just a myth or fairy tale. — G.P. A: No, heaven isn’t a myth or fairy tale. Heaven is real — more real than the ground you walk on or the stars you see at night, because some day they’ll all come to an end, but heaven will remain. How do I know heaven is real? I know it first of all because Jesus told us it’s real — and His word can be trusted, because He cannot lie. He said, “In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you” (John 14:2). Just as God is eternal, so heaven is eternal, for it is the dwelling place of God. I know heaven is real also because Jesus Christ came to earth for one purpose: To make it possible for us to go there. Only one thing can keep us out of heaven, and that is our sin. But Christ came to take away our sins by His death on the cross, and now He offers eternal life to all who put their faith and trust in Him. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). But most of all I know heaven is real because Jesus Christ came back from the grave. Death and hell have been conquered, and heaven’s gates are now open — because of Him!

Teen bullying can be depression red flag

Mourners as they gather outside the funeral for 17-yearold Alexis Pilkington in Babylon N.Y. Pilkington was a popular athlete, a well-liked star who had already landed a soccer scholarship to college. Pilkington killed herself in March in West Islip, N.Y. Haas said. But a study of 2,342 high school students published in 2007 in the Journal of American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry showed â&#x20AC;&#x153;a clear associationâ&#x20AC;? between bullying, depression, suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts, according to Gould, who was one of the authors. Among students who said they were frequently bullied in school, nearly 30 percent reported depression, and 11 percent reported serious thoughts of suicide and suicide attempts. Among those who frequently bullied others in school, almost 19 percent reported experiencing depression and about 8 percent reported suicidal thoughts or attempts. In contrast, among kids who said they were never bullied, only 7 percent reported depression, and 3 percent reported suicidal thoughts or suicide attempts. Overall, the study found

  s   

about 9 percent of high school students said they were frequently bullied, and 13 percent said they frequently bullied others. These rates were consistent with other studies, the researchers said. Teens are often secretive about their social lives, but bullying is â&#x20AC;&#x153;something we need to ask our kids about,â&#x20AC;? Gould said. Remind them that insulting or humiliating someone on Facebook, by text or e-mail can be just as devastating as physical confrontations or pranks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the 21st century electronic age, you can be one step removed from what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing,â&#x20AC;? Alec L. Miller, an adolescent psychologist at the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital at Montefiore/ Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not actually saying something to someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just writing an e-mail. That makes it a lot easier to bully and harass. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had bullying for centuries, but this is a new phenomenon.â&#x20AC;?

In addition, Miller believes that trash-talk on TV â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from the critiques on â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Idolâ&#x20AC;? to inyour-face insults on reality shows â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has desensitized us to the harm words can inflict. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a level of mean-spiritednessâ&#x20AC;? that has come to be accepted, he said. Explain that bullying â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whether physical or verbal â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;is serious, that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not in fun, that some people take this very seriously and they can think of hurting themselves,â&#x20AC;? Gould said. Encourage kids to take action if they witness bullying. A simple comment like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cut it outâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leave him aloneâ&#x20AC;? could help change the dynamic when someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being picked on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone needs to take responsibility for whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening in the school,â&#x20AC;? Miller said. Yet teens may fear becoming the bullyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next target if they speak out. So be sure to encourage them to tell parents, teachers or guidance counselors, and if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the one they come to, let school officials and other parents know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on. What if your teen is the one being harassed? If he or she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem deeply distressed by it, offer some simple coping strategies. Bullies thrive on getting a reaction from their victims, so ignoring them can be a powerful antidote, Gould advised. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Defend yourself, not by getting into a fight, but by showing that you have resilience,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Find other friends, join other groups, find another social network that is not going to do that to you.â&#x20AC;?

Shelter dogs benefit from volunteerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s photographs By SUE MANNING Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Maybe shelter dogs just need a Hollywood moment. Seth Casteel, a professional pet photographer, volunteers a couple of hours each week at the West Los Angeles Animal Care Center, photographing dogs who need homes. The pictures replace the mug shot-like photos taken by shelter staff when the animals arrive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of animals donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand what the deal is. They are coming off the truck, chained up, fearful, maybe fighting back. Some may not be healthy. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the moment to take a photo,â&#x20AC;? said Casteel, 29. Casteel photographs as many as 30 dogs a week at the shelter with the help of volunteers like Lola McKnight who fetch the dogs and play with them while he shoots. Those â&#x20AC;&#x153;personality shotsâ&#x20AC;? become the dogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first impressions on Web sites, newspaper ads, fliers, e-mails and social

networks. Shelter manager Capt. Louis Dedeaux said many visitors will come in carrying one of Casteelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog photos. There is no way to know how many of the dogs heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s photographed have been adopted or what else figured in a placement, but adoption numbers at the shelter are very high, Dedeaux said. Casteel doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to take a lot of puppy pictures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People want puppies so they go first,â&#x20AC;? Dedeaux said. The dogs Casteel shoots are usually older and he works wonders with them, Dedeaux said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get happy expressions, sometimes a perfect â&#x20AC;&#x2122;take me homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; look,â&#x20AC;? he explained. The photographer has saved more than one old dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, Dedeaux said. It is a kill shelter so animals canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stay indefinitely, he said. And Casteel said he hopes the idea spreads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We keep them as long as we can,â&#x20AC;? Dedeaux said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but the longer a dog is here, the worse his chances are.â&#x20AC;?

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The word â&#x20AC;&#x153;bullyâ&#x20AC;? may conjure up images of a 9-year-old punk shaking down a 7year-old for lunch money. But teenagers experience bullying too, and research shows it can be a red flag for depression and suicidal behavior. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true whether teens are doing the bullying, or are victims of it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are vulnerable and being bullied, it can be the straw that breaks the camelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back,â&#x20AC;? said Madelyn S. Gold, a professor of psychiatry and public health at Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute who has studied bullying. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean bullying causes suicide. But it is an associated factor. Six teenagers were charged recently in South Haley, Mass., in connection with the case of Phoebe Prince, who killed herself after she complained of being tormented by kids in her high school. In another case, a teenager named Alexis Pilkington killed herself in March in West Islip, N.Y., and nasty comments about her were posted online even after her death. But Alexisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; father told a local paper, Newsday, that the harassment â&#x20AC;&#x153;was not the major or even a minor factorâ&#x20AC;? in the suicide. Ann Haas, director of suicide prevention projects at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, cautioned against thinking in terms of â&#x20AC;&#x153;cause and effectâ&#x20AC;? when it comes to bullying and suicide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The key risk factor for suicide in youth is unrecognized, untreated mental disorders, particularly depression,â&#x20AC;?

ICELANDIC VOLCANO

Restless volcano may upset Europe for months By ARTHUR MAX Associated Press Writer

AMSTERDAM — Even as Europe’s dormant airports sputter back to life, prudent travelers should ask: What if it happens again? Because it might. Over and over again, for weeks, perhaps months, scientists say. The last eruption from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajoekull, in 1821, lasted off and on for 13 months — but back then there were no jet engines to get clogged up from volcanic residue. What should the world brace for if ash clouds wash over European skies intermittently for six months or a year, repeatedly closing airports with just a few hours warning? The crucial tourist industry will be devastated. Supermarkets will have less out-of-season produce. Businesses, like delivery services, will need to improvise. And everything will be more expensive. Europe’s recovery from the economic recession likely will be set back to zero. Banks and governments, worried about runaway inflation, may tighten credit. Railways and roads will be overloaded with freight and people opting for more reliable means of travel. Five days into the crisis, a BMW plant in Germany and a Nissan plant in Japan were forced to close temporarily because the ash cloud prevented the arrival of parts shipments. Prolonged disruptions to supply chains could have a profound effect on manu-

As long as the volcano keeps rumbling, few people are likely to willingly risk more nightmarish delays camped out at airports or trapped in overpriced hotels. Some people may feel more isolated, unable to escape on a cheap lastminute air ticket. They may think twice about visiting Grandma if it means six hours on a train rather than one hour in the sky. And booking a seat on the intercity express may be a lot harder. Optimists will see benefits in a slower pace of life and the excuse to pass up yet another business conference. Vacations will be closer to home. Certainly, people living under a flight path will enjoy the quiet and skies unmarred by contrails. The climate, too, might

benefit from the absence of polluting aircraft in the sky, though the cancellation of 100,000 or so flights would amount to just a blip on the rising graph of the world’s carbon emissions. National railways are enjoying a boom. Extra trains are running from Moscow and Madrid and all points in between. Eurostar added 33 trains since the weekend carrying 165,000 passengers from Britain to the continent, or 50,000 more than usual. Economically, however, the picture would be generally grim. Travel and tourism account for up to 5 percent of Europe’s economic output. Even if the number of travelers drops by just one person in five, Europe can scrap its hoped-for return to growth this year, said economic analyst Vanessa Rossi.

The spin-off effects of a sharp drop in travel could wipe off one to two percent of GDP. “That basically means we’ve got a continued recession,” said Rossi, of Chatham House, a London research institute. “If it persists, it’s quite chaotic. You find ways through it, but it’s going to be more costly,” she said. “This is absolutely bad news at the wrong time. But nobody chooses a volcano to erupt. So that’s it,” she said. Simon Tilford, chief economist of the Center for European Reform, said it was too early to say the recovery would be severely undermined. Some sectors would suffer more than others, he said, but generally Europe would muddle through. Airlines, still struggling to return to profits, will be the big losers. The International Air Transport

Association calculated the airlines lost $200 million a day during the first five days of the volcanic crisis, and carriers are looking to their governments for support. Tim Clark, president of the Dubai-based Emirates airlines, said the worldwide airline industry faced the threat of “implosion” if the crisis lasts too long. Without government help “there won’t be many carriers left. You simply can’t afford to shut down something the size of Europe,” he said, putting Emirates’ own losses at $10 million. Countries like Greece and Portugal, already facing debt crises, are counting on their tourist industries to help them limp back to growth — plans that now could go seriously awry. The ripple effect will spread around our interconnected globe. Kenya, which exports 1,000 tons a day of fresh goods, has thrown away 10 million flowers — mostly roses — since the volcano eruption. Asparagus, broccoli and green beans meant for European dinner tables are being fed to Kenyan cattle because storage facilities are filled to capacity. Pineapples are piling up with farmers in Ghana, since the airport has no refrigeration facilities to safely wait for a cargo flight. European airports like Amsterdam’s Schiphol are major transit points for travel between Africa and North America, and from Asia westwards.

With more Europeans staying home and more business done by teleconference, the United States and the rest of the world will see a drop in travel revenue. India’s imports of rough diamonds from Antwerp and London have been hit, denying raw material for its huge diamond polishing industry. Exports of the prepared industrial diamonds and jewelry back to Europe and the U.S. will suffer if flights remain halted, said Chandrakant Sanghvi, regional chairman of India’s Gem and Jewelry Export Promotion Council. Other businesses said they are coping with interrupted air supplies, but they appeared not to have given much thought to long-term shutdowns of supply chains. In the first week of the emergency, the focus was on finding solutions to immediate problems rather than on structural changes. “I would say it’s dayto-day,” Ford spokesman Todd Nissen said in Detroit. “There’s so many plants that could potentially be affected. ... It’s such a complex system.” With its 50 Europebased planes grounded, DHL, the international delivery service, has engaged in creative routing, said Jorge Wiedemann from its corporate headquarters in Bonn, Germany. Air freight from the U.S. and other points were diverted to Spain, then put on a fleet of trucks. The centralized distribution system based in Leipzig was modified to add regional hubs, he said.

TRAVEL BRIEFS

Museum lets fans soak in Run for Roses By BRUCE SCHREINER Associated Press Writer

LOUISVILLE, Ky. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Within the shadows of venerable Churchill Downs, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most famous horse race never ends. Nor does the pageantry of the Kentucky Derby. The Kentucky Derby Museum, situated just off Gate 1 at Churchill, offers a treasure trove of Derby memories for horse racing aficionados and people making their maiden trip to a track. The museum was closed for renovations due to flooding for the past nine months, but reopened Sunday, just in time for the Run for the Roses on May 1. Through videos and testimonials from racing greats to regular fans, visitors soak in the Derby Day atmosphere â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from the regal millionaireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s row to the raucous infield. Exhibits showcase the Derbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation as a giant runway for fashion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with examples ranging from the pale pink, sequined dress worn by Anna Nicole Smith on loan to the museum to the colorful, plumed hats dotting the Derby crowd. Interactive displays let visitors pretend theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re riding hard-charging thoroughbreds, guiding them to the rail or to the outside, or making wagers on randomly chosen past races at Churchill â&#x20AC;&#x201D; though no actual money changes hands. Guests can clear their throats and call a horse race as track announcer, or test their Derby knowledge with a trivia game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t race fans yet, I hope ... this tempts them to watch a horse race,â&#x20AC;? said museum spokeswoman Wendy Treinen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope people who have been in before say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow, this place is great.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; All the new technol-

The Kentucky Derby Museum, situated just off Gate 1 at Churchill, offers a treasure trove of Derby memories for horse racing aficionados and people making their maiden trip to a track. ogy just sucks you right in and you want to learn more.â&#x20AC;? Every Run for the Roses since 1918 can be replayed with the touch of a screen, allowing visitors to relive the Derby Day glory of longshots to Triple Crown winners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to see retired jockeys come in and watch their races,â&#x20AC;? Treinen said. Though the museum celebrates the Derby every day, the nonprofit attraction that draws about 210,000 visitors per year is a separate entity from Churchill Downs. In the past year, the museum has shown the resilience of a Triple Crown winner. Last August, the museum was swamped by flash flooding that caused more than $4 million in damage, forcing its closure. The museum reopened less than two weeks before this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Derby, following an ambitious $5.5 million renovation. The museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collection of artifacts was largely spared, though a few dozen

items were sent to a Chicago company specializing in restoration work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a rush to literally walk through the water to save the items as the ceiling poured in and water rose from the floor,â&#x20AC;? Treinen said. Memorabilia from races past are on display throughout the museum. Visitors can see assorted Derby trophies awarded to winning owners and jockeys, the saddle strapped to 1948 Derby winner Citation and the halter worn by 1975 Derby victor Foolish Pleasure. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 1936 Derby program signed by Babe Ruth, and a Richard Nixon-signed Derby bio book replete with information about the 1969 field of Derby horses. Meanwhile, an interactive display called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Countdown to Victoryâ&#x20AC;? offers a fascinating behindthe-scenes look at the Derby. Visitors can listen to jockeys and trainers recount the preparation and emotions leading up to the big race. Famed jockey Pat Day

recalls riding onto the track before the huge Derby crowd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just so much electricity in the air, so much enthusiasm and excitement,â&#x20AC;? he says in an audio interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just tangible, you can cut it with a knife.â&#x20AC;? The traditional playing of â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Old Kentucky Homeâ&#x20AC;? before the race will â&#x20AC;&#x153;stir emotions like no other,â&#x20AC;? said renowned trainer D. Wayne Lukas. The museum also arranges for guided walking tours of Churchill Downs. A half-hour tour includes visits to the paddock, where the horses are saddled before a race, and to the grandstand. An approximately 90-minute tour includes visits to the jockeysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quarters, millionairesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; row, the press box and parts of Churchillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renovated clubhouse. Another option is an hourlong barn and backside van tour, which allows visitors to watch horses train, catch them during a bath and learn about life at the track.

Cirque to put on show based on Michael Jackson LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; First the Beatles and Elvis, now Michael Jackson. The acrobatic troupe Cirque du Soleil announced Tuesday that it will put on a live touring show featuring the songs of the King of Pop starting late next year. That will be followed by a permanent production in Las Vegas in 2012 at a property owned by MGM Mirage Inc. The casino company did not say which venue will host the show. A nightclub in Las Vegas will also open with the show. Cirque and Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate will each own 50 percent of the project and share equally in the cost of putting it on. The estate will also receive royalties from the use of Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music and other assets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having attended Cirque du Soleil performances with Michael, I know he was a huge fan,â&#x20AC;? John Branca, the co-executor of the estate, said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are excited to be partners with Cirque du Soleil to give Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fans a truly unique way to hear, see and feel Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music.â&#x20AC;? Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Katherine, added in a statement, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our family is thrilled that Cirque du Soleil will pay tribute to my son in such an important way.â&#x20AC;?

latest figures,â&#x20AC;? FIFA ticketing subcommittee chairman Horst Schmidt said. The opening game is also sold out between host South Africa and Mexico at Johannesburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Soccer City stadium on June 11. FIFA said tickets were still available for one quarterfinal and the third and fourth playoffs, as well as a selection of final 16 and group games. Some less popular matches, like South Korea vs. Greece at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth and Paraguay vs. New Zealand in the northern city of Polokwane, are yet to sell out tickets in any of the four seat categories. Ten matches still have unsold tickets in all four ticket categories, including the lowest priced one for locals. Another eight games have only sold out the cheapest tickets.

June opening for W.Va. resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full-scale casino CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The picture postcard view of The Greenbrier resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s white hotel facade offset with tulips in spring splendor is gone, replaced by cranes, dust and construction workers in a dash to finish an underground casino beneath what used to be the front lawn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basically crunch time,â&#x20AC;? said Todd Fishon, the resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vice president of casino operations. A harsh winter has pushed back the opening of the 89,000-square-foot Casino Club to June and the exact date will be determined soon, he said. The casino is being built underground so it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take away from the ambiance and scenery of the 6,500-acre resort, which has entertained kings and presidents and once housed a secret bomb shelter intended for Congress. A tiny portion of the casino opened in October. For the bigger version, an area in front of the hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entrance was excavated. Resort officials aimed for an April 15 debut, but Mother Nature didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cooperate.

f you found it hard to get the five daily servings of produce you’ve been told for years you need, you’ll probably find it even harder to get the nine serving experts now suggest. But adding a fruit chutney or compote to your dinner plate — rather than just over a dessert — can help nudge you along. Chutneys and compotes are both good choices, especially between seasons when fruits aren’t necessarily at their best. Both types of sauces usually are cooked, which means that even if the fruits aren’t that sweet, any sugars they do have will concentrate, and the resulting flavors will be much more intense. Compotes can be made with fresh or dried fruit, which usu-

arketing incentives are designed with people such as me in mind. I’ll fall for any kind of a deal or a bargain. If I am placing an order online and I need to spend $15 more to qualify for free shipping — shipping that would likely total less than $15 — I have to find a few more things to add to my virtual cart. After all, I would be throwing money out the window if I didn’t take advantage of the deal, right? A few INSIDE weeks ago, I was See our presented weekly Dining Guide for with a local menu coupon options for a free Pages 4-5C frappe at McDonald’s. Well, that one “free” frappe cost me about $30 over the following weeks. I became hooked, which I am quite sure was the intention of the coupon. Cook Out has reeled me in the same way. I would never normally just go out and buy a milkshake, nor would I normally stop by Cook Out for a meal. But when they have something on special each week for only 99 cents, that just seems like a giveaway — one that I would be remiss not to take advantage of. The problem with me is that I completely realize that these marketing schemes have a hold on me, yet I continue to fall for them. I’ve decided recently to try to control myself a bit more. It’s not really working so far. It did give me a good excuse, however, to make some milkshakes at home this weekend. Instead of repeatedly paying $2.79 for a caramel frappe throughout the week, I bought a half gallon of coffee ice cream for the same price and will enjoy several caramel macchiato milkshakes. With only three ingredients, it doesn’t get much easier than this. This is a cool, refreshing treat that

in turn captures me as I pour over her novels. In some way, each of her books depicts God’s relentless pursuit of His chosen people, and reminds me that even when we deviate from God’s way, He is still working everything that happens into the bigger picture of what He wants for us; Rivers’s books testify that God’s plans for His children are so much better than the plans and dreams they have for themselves. After reading (and most often re-reading) one of her books, I am overwhelmed by the knowledge that I am a recipient of such grace and care, and I’m reminded again why Rivers is my favorite author. Consequently, had you been at the Carpenter’s Shop one Friday afternoon a few weeks ago, you would have seen me in surprised excitement as the assistant manager revealed a new release from Rivers that I was not expecting to see for another few months. “Her Mother’s Hope” is

part one of a saga about a family whose lives span both World Wars and several countries, including Switzerland, France, Canada and The United States. The story begins with Marta, a 14-year-old Swiss girl who has an abusive father and an emotionally and physically weak mother who suffers from tuberculosis. Marta determines early on that she wants to support herself and be the master of her future, and she works diligently for most of her life to make that happen. Eventually she meets and marries a German engineer and they move their growing family to California where they fight prejudices and the economy to build a successful farm in the height of the tumultuous atmosphere of World War II. Halfway through the book, the point of view transitions from that of Marta to her daughter, Hildemara. From her eyes we see the latter years of Marta’s life and how she is perceived from the perspective of someone ignorant of the trials she faced in her early life. In this

part of the novel, Rivers begins to explore the less than perfect landscape of human relationships as she chronicles the journey of a mother and daughter who eventually find trust and reconciliation amid a world of pain. Once again, Rivers has created tangible characters and a powerful story; her portrayal of Marta and her family has the feel of real life — unpredictable and simultaneously full of joy and sorrow. According to the author’s note at the end of the book, Rivers drew much of the story from the lives of her own mother and grandmother; after reading this, the realistic qualities of the book made more sense, and I look forward to reading it again with this new piece of information. Like the elements of Rivers’s family history, the evidence of grace is woven seamlessly into “Her Mother’s Hope;” through the drama of Marta’s story, we see a picture of a loving Father who will always be ready to welcome His children back home, regardless of the circumstances or heartaches they had to endure to get there.

Shingles vaccine helps protect seniors DEAR SAVVY SENIOR: What can you tell me about shingles and the shingles vaccination? Do I need to get it? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; CAUTIOUS SENIOR DEAR CAUTIOUS: The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone age 60 and older should get a shingles vaccination. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you should know.

Pesky virus Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is a painful and itching skin rash that affects more than a million Americans each year. It is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox (varicella-zoster). What happens is the chickenpox virus that most people get as kids, never leaves the body. It retreats into the nerve cells near the spinal cord where it lies dormant, with the possibility of re-emerging decades later in the form of shingles. In the U.S., one out of every three people will develop shingles during their lifetime. While anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had chickenpox can get shingles, it most commonly occurs in people over age 50, and the risk increases with age. In fact, about half of those who reach 85 will have suffered a bout of shingles. Those with a weakened immune system are also vulnerable.

get it.

Get vaccinated

Nasty rash Shingles is a nasty rash and more! Early signs include pain, itching or tingling before a blistering rash appears several days later, and can last up to four weeks. The rash typically occurs on one side of the body, often as a band of blisters that extends from the middle of your back around to the breastbone. It can also appear above an eye or on the side of the face or neck. In addition to the rash, more than onethird who get shingles go on to develop serious complications such as post-herpetic neuralgia, a severe nerve pain that can last for months or even years. If it occurs on the face, it can affect vision and hearing, or cause brain inflammation. And according to a recent study, shingles can also raise the risk of stroke by around 30 percent in seniors who

The only vaccine for shingles, Zostavax, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2006 and has proven to be very effective. While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not foolproof, Zostavax will prevent shingles in half the people who get the shot, and if you do get it youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get a much milder case. Everyone, age 60 and older thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had the chickenpox, including those that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had it, should get vaccinated. Even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already had shingles, you still need the vaccination because reoccurring cases are possible. The only people, ages 60 and older, who should not be vaccinated are those who are allergic to gelatin or neomycin, have a weakened immune system or take high doses of steroids. You also need to know that the shingles vaccination is covered by most insurance plans including Medicare, but only if you have a Part D prescription drug plan. If you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t covered you can expect to pay between $150 and $300 for the one-time shot. For more information or to locate a vaccine provider in your area, talk to your doctor, visit Zostavax.com or call 800672-6372. Also note that if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re uninsured and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford this vaccine, Merck, the maker of Zostavax, offers a vaccine assistance program that

provides the shot free of charge. Call 800-2933881 or see merck.com/ merckhelps/vaccines for details.

If you get shingles While thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no cure for shingles, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually treated with antiviral medications which can help speed up the healing process and reduce the pain, severity and potential complications of the attack. Acyclovir (Zovirax), famciclovir (Famvir) or valacyclovir (Valtrex) are commonly prescribed. Your doctor will decide which of these medicines might work best for you, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to act quickly because these medicines work best if you start taking them within the first 72 hours after you get the rash. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important to note that no one can catch shingles from you, but they can catch chickenpox if they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already had chickenpox or had the chickenpox vaccine â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but only by direct contact with the rash. So if you have shingles, stay away from babies and kids who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had the chickenpox and pregnant women.

FOOD ON TELEVISION

Try an egg on your pizza

Emeril going strong 20 years on

By J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Editor

Seems you can’t order a pizza these days without someone having cracked an egg in the center. Not being particularly partial to runny eggs (the idea is that the egg white cooks on top of the pizza, but the yolk stays runny, creating a sort of sauce for the pizza when sliced), I’d given this trend a pass. I finally relented and tried one at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s ABC Kitchen in New York. It was outstanding. A simple pizza topped with mushrooms turned wondrous when the creamy yolk spilled over the top. Time to make my own version. I started with a simple layer of rainbow chard, onions and garlic sauteed in olive oil. I topped that with a bit of prosciutto (think bacon and eggs) and some chunks of fresh goat cheese. Nothing short of amazing. But be sure to wait until the pizza is partially cooked before adding the egg. Otherwise, the egg will cook through and you’ll lose the effect of the runny yolk.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Nearly 20 years after Emeril Lagasse begged, borrowed and scrounged every penny he could to open his own restaurant, the celebrity chef worried it was all slipping away. Lagasse’s 17-year run on the Food Network was over. Hurricane Katrina had caused at least a $1 million loss to his three New Orleans-based restaurants and cut his profits by a third. But just when things were looking bleakest — Bam! — Martha Stewart kicked it up a notch and the 50-year-old Lagasse is back. “She showed up at a tough time when I thought the whole ship

ally is left chunky and baked or simmered in a light syrup. It can be served as a side or topping to a savory entree, such as chicken or pork. A chutney is a condiment made with fruits, vegetables or legumes. They can vary in texture, be sweet or sour, and range in spiciness from mild to very hot. Chutney can be made from a mixture of raw ingredients, but the most familiar versions, such as mango chutney, are cooked and consist of a fruit or vegetable, sugar, vinegar and spices. This recipe for sauteed chicken breasts with strawberry-blueberry chutney is a delicious example of adding fruit sauces to your dinner plate. Early spring strawberries (which may

might be going down,” Lagasse said during a recent interview. “Basically, what I have now is a business partner.” He also has a string of successful restaurants, a new television program, regular appearances in Stewart’s magazines, and has a 10-cookbook publishing deal (the third of which will be released in June). Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, the New York-based media and merchandising company founded by the domesticity maven, in 2008 bought the rights to Lagasse’s franchise of cookbooks, television shows and kitchen products from him for $45 million in cash

and $5 million in stock. The final price could rise to up to $70 million. “Maybe it didn’t save me, but it sure gave me some breathing room and got the banks off my back,” Lagasse said. Stewart said she has admired Lagasse since before he opened his first restaurant, and credits him with helping take food television mainstream. “His remarkable talents in the kitchen and his highenergy exuberance delight and inform,” she said. “He made television cooking programs mainstream, opening the category to new audiences and proving that cooking is something everyone can enjoy.”

not be their ripest) are cooked with intensely flavored, sweet dried blueberries, chopped red onion and spicy fresh ginger to create a sweet and savory sauce that complements chicken, pork or beef. If you like, substitute fresh rhubarb for the strawberries to create a more bracing chutney.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 pounds) 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon butter Heat the oven to 375 F. In a small saucepan over medium, heat the canola oil. Add the onion and saute until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the strawberries, dried blueberries, brown sugar, vinegar and ginger. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until the berries are softened and breaking down, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Dredge both sides of each breast through the seasoned flour. In a large nonstick ovensafe skillet over medium, heat the olive oil and butter. Add the chicken and cook for about 10 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to the oven and cook for another 5 minutes, or until an instant thermometer inserted at the thickest part reads 165 F. Serve the chicken topped with strawberry-blueberry chutney.

Cooperative hands out honors From Staff Reports

SANFORD — The Lee County Extension and Community Association Achievement Celebration was held at Elizabeth’s Pizza for an Italian Buffet on Feb.25. Ann Clarke, 2009-2010 County Council President, welcomed the attendees. Carol Cox of the Lemon Springs ECA recognized guests. Celebrating the group’s successes were four of the seven Lee County Commissioners: Chairman Richard Hayes, Vice Chairman Doc Oldham, Commissioners Ed Paschal and Linda Shook. Sylvia Churchwell, NCCE State Advisory Council Member gave the invocation. County Extension Director, Susan Condlin, presented awards to Blue Ribbon cultural arts winners Georgia Garner, Lemon Springs ECA for her Sewing and Heritage Skills

bowl? Or, have you ever considered how much sugar is in some of the foods and drinks we enjoy daily. For example, what about the sugar in our soft drinks? Make a point to look at the nutrition facts on the back of your drink bottle. Let’s use the 20ounce bottle that is sold in many convenience stores and restaurants. The first thing you need to take note of is the serving size and the number of servings per container. While you might think that bottle is just for you to drink during lunch, it actually has 2.5 servings of 8 ounces each. This means you have to think about calories, sodium, sugar, etc. in terms of either a serving or the entire bottle. And let’s be real, how often do you drink just one serving and put the rest back in the refrigerator for later? In a 20 ounce bottle of cola there are 27grams of sugar in a serving and 65grams in the entire bottle. Grams…hmmm…just how much is a gram? There are approximately 4 grams in a teaspoon. To calculate the number of teaspoons in the cola, divide 65 by 4. That works out to be almost 17 teaspoons of sugar. Wow! Did you know that you were consuming 17 teaspoons of sugar each time you had a 20-ounce cola? That’s just like eating sugar by the spoonful! Soft drinks (sodas, lemonade, sweet tea, sport drinks, fruit drinks, Kool-aid, etc) are basically flavored sugar water. We tend to drink a lot of them and never feel full. If you drink one 20-ounce cola a day for every day in the year, that would add up to 87,600 calories or a potential weight gain of 25 pounds. When children and adults drink soft drinks it is likely that they are not drinking enough low-fat or fat-free milk and water. Compare the benefits of drinking milk and water compared to drinking soft drinks. Milk is good for

entries; Ann Blakeley, member at large for her recycled woven plastic bag tote; Ann Clarke, Hearts and Hands ECA for her appliqued quilt; Carol Fulton, Hearts and Hands ECA for her pieced lap quilt; and Phyllis Andrews, Hearts and Hands ECA for fine art tole painting. These blue ribbon winners advanced to the district level where Ann Blakely’s loom woven tote received a blue ribbon and will compete at the State Cultural Arts competition to be held in October. Georgia Garner, Carol Cox, Brenda Willett, Sylvia Churchwell and Gladys Noel were recognized for contributing over 2690 volunteer hours in 2009. 804 of those hours were given to Cooperative Extension and were valued at $16,080. Brenda Willett, chair of the Lee County ECA Scholarship Commit-

tee, announced the Lee County ECA Scholarship winner, Lizabeth Carolina Arias. Lisbeth and Laura Katherine Crankshaw were selected as local finalists to represent Lee County for the District ECA Sscholarship. President Ann Clarke gave the 2009 club accomplishments report.

Soft drinks give you…sugar. Children under the age of one need breast milk or formula. Children between 1 and 2 years of age should drink 2 cups of whole milk. By the age of 2, children can switch to 2 cups of lowfat or fat-free milk. Low-fat and fat-free milk actually have more calcium and the same vitamins as whole or 2% milk. For children 9 years and older, as well as for adults, the recommendation is 3 cups of low-fat or fat-free milk per day. We should have 6-8 (8 ounce) glasses of water per day. During warm weather or during physical activity increase your water intake. Want to learn more about making smart drink choices and healthy eating? Cooperative Extension has a nutrition program called Faithful Families Eating Smart and Moving More that we can present at your church or faith community. Faithful Families is a collaboration between N.C.

Cooperative Extension, Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP), the N.C. Division of Public Health and faith communities in Lee County. Faithful Families is offered at no cost and is funded through the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust of Winston-Salem. Through a series of 9 lessons, participants learn how to save money at the grocery store, read nutrition labels, learn the benefits of fruits and vegetables, make smart drink choices, practice food safety and learn ways to get more activity in their day. In each lesson participants sample a healthy recipe. Lay leaders from each congregation assist in the program and help make the connection between healthy lifestyles and faith. To date we have offered the program in seven Lee County Churches and the funding will allow us to accommodate three more before it ends in June, 2010. If you would like to learn more about the Faithful Families Eating Smart and Moving More program, contact me at Cooperative Extension at 775-5624.

Garden Guide

Building a rain barrel to save money and the earth As a gardener, and a water-user in general, I worry about the supply of water for myself and for my plants, which will likely die if they go through a hot, dry summer. Water is a precious resource regardless of whether North Carolina is experiencing drought conditions or not. A multitude of different strategies can be used to help garden with less water. One technique includes using a rain barrel. Rain barrels collect and store stormwater runoff from the roof of your house. Only ¼ inch of runoff from an average roof will fill a typical barrel. That’s not a lot of rain! A rain barrel, used over the summer to supplement water use for gardening and other activities, can save homeowners 1,300 gallons of water. This means less stormwater runoff going into the municipal systems and money savings for you. Local lawn and garden centers are carrying rain barrels this year, but supplies are limited for this hot item. For those of you who are handy (or have handy husbands!), building a rain barrel is not too difficult an endeavor. Here’s how: Supplies: 1 — 55 gallon barrel with lid 2 — ¾ x ½ threaded bushings 1 — ½ x 1-1/8 nipple 2 — ¾ metal washers 2 — ¾ rubber washers (the inside circle will need to be enlarged) 1 — 6 oz. tube of all purpose adhesive caulk 1 — shut off valve 1 — piece of old screen 1 — length of hose (optional) Before you begin, be sure to clean out the barrel with soapy water as some residues can be harmful to plants and animals. Drill a hole about 4 inches from the bottom

of the barrel. If the barrel slopes near the bottom, place your hole higher so that the hose connector will be horizontal. Next assemble the hose connector by threading the rubber washer, the metal washer, and the bushing on one end of the nipple. Now you will need a helper — place the hose connector piece through the hole you drilled. Apply some caulk around the front and back of the hole to seal the piece. Assemble the front in the same manner as the back (rubber washer, metal washer and bushing). Have your helper hold the inside tap tight with a long-arm socket while you tighten the front with a wrench. Attach a shut off valve to the front of the tap. Before you go to use the barrel, make sure the valve is in the “off” position. You may also add a short length of hose to help when filling a watering can. Now for the lid. Drill a number of large holes in the lid. Use the lid as a guide to cut a circle of screen. The screen will

be glued to the underside of the lid. Screen serves to catch any debris that may be in the runoff and, if mosquito screen is used, will help keep mosquitoes from breeding there. Place your newly made rain barrel under a downspout, under the eave of a house, or out in the open. If you are placing the barrel under a downspout, you will need to shorten the downspout with a hacksaw so the barrel will fit under it. Elevate your barrel on level cinder blocks if possible so you can place a watering can under the drain. You can add overflow barrels by connecting the barrels in the same manner as described above or add a rain diverter to the downspout to divert water when the barrel fills. A rain barrel is a cheap and easy way to save money and help the environment at the same time. The project will take less than a half hour to complete. The next time it rains, you can be prepared to collect it! For more information on building a rain barrel, contact our Center at 775-5624.

Study: 2 good choices to prevent breast cancer By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Medical Writer

Older women at higher risk for breast cancer now have two good drug options for preventing the disease, but they will have to weigh the tradeoffs, a major study shows. Tamoxifen, the longtime gold standard, is more effective and longer lasting, the results show. But a newer drug — raloxifene, sold as Evista — is safer. “I don’t see a clear winner,” but two good choices with different risks and benefits, said Dr. Scott Lippman, a cancer specialist at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. He is editor of Cancer Prevention Research, a journal that published long-term results from the federally funded study on Monday. They

also were being presented at an American Association for Cancer Research meeting in Washington. Tamoxifen is widely used to treat cancer once it’s diagnosed, and Evista is used to treat osteoporosis. But the drugs have not found wide acceptance so far as cancer preventives. Doctors hope the findings will spur more high-risk women to consider taking one of the drugs. They’re not recommended for women at average risk of breast cancer. But for the millions who are at higher risk because of gene mutations, family history or other factors, they can make a dramatic difference. Tamoxifen cut the chances of developing the most serious forms of breast cancer in half, the

research shows, but with a higher risk of uterine cancer. Evista cut the cancer risk by 38 percent, with fewer uterine problems and other serious side effects. “We’ve now documented that it’s far less toxic” than tamoxifen, said study leader Dr. D. Lawrence Wickerham. He is a cancer specialist at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh who has consulted for makers of both drugs. Tamoxifen has long been used to treat and prevent breast cancer. It blunts estrogen, which fuels the growth of most tumors that occur after menopause.

of County Commissioners, School District and Sherriff’s Department representatives, members of LeeCAN, faith based representatives, as well as individuals involved with our local non-profit organizations. Participants were given insight into the data collection process and results. LeeCAN distributed over 600 surveys and received back 330. The information gathered

Evista, sold by Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly & Co., more selectively blocks estrogen. It is only for use after menopause; its safety and effectiveness before then are unknown. Generic tamoxifen costs about 30 cents a day, versus up to $3 for Evista. Both can cause hot flashes. The study, called STAR, compared them in nearly 20,000 postmenopausal women at higher risk of breast cancer. They took one drug or the other for about five years and then stopped (longer use is not known to be safe or good). After about seven

in the surveys included, demographic, personal health, environmental awareness, community issues, and overall life in Lee County. LeeCAN also conducted 8 separate focus groups, consisting of 90 participants. These participants were asked questions concerning: the quality of life, the needs, and challenges faced by the citizens of Lee County. The top ten health problems in Lee County were determined to be: Aging problems Cancer Dental health

years of follow-up, there were 310 cases of invasive breast cancer among women on Evista versus 247 in those on tamoxifen. That works out to a 24 percent higher cancer rate for Evista users. Uterine cancer developed in 65 tamoxifen users but in only 37 women on Evista. Twice as many women on tamoxifen had abnormal uterine growths that led to hysterectomies. Blood clots and cataracts also were less common with Evista. Evista clearly is the safer drug, said V. Craig Jordan of Georgetown University, the scientist who led development of tamoxifen. However,

Evista’s breast cancer prevention benefits wane over time much more than tamoxifen’s do. Lippman, the Texas cancer specialist, agreed. “It may be that with raloxifene, you need to continue to take it,” he said. And even counting the additional uterine cancers that occurred with tamoxifen, its users still had 35 fewer invasive cancers overall than women on Evista. It sets up a choice, he said. For example, women might choose tamoxifen if they are at very high risk of breast cancer and have had hysterectomies so that uterine cancer is not a concern.

Once these ballots are compiled, the next steps will be to: convene task force groups, develop Action Plans for each of the top five priorities and completing of the Community Health Assessment document to be presented to the public and sent to the NC Healthy Carolinians’ office by Dec. 6. A community working together will move Lee County towards a better and healthier life. This is the first step towards that happening.

Each issue was presented to the stake holders, with additional relative information from the surveys, focus groups and statistical data from government sources. The stake holders were then given ballots with the top ten health problems and asked to choose five that they see as the priorities
