Lee County High School English teacher Jessica Hamilton wins annual honor that includes a car By BILLY BALL

SANFORD — Lee County High teacher Jessica Hamilton never saw this one coming. Hamilton’s eyes filled with tears, moments after Lee County Schools Superintendent Jeff Moss announced she had been named 2010 Teacher of the Year Thursday. “I’m shocked,” Hamilton said. “The longer I listened to them talk about all these other teachers, the more I thought, ‘Oh, it’s not going to be me.’” Not so. Hamilton, an English teacher renowned for her attention to her students’ needs, was the winner all the same. She competed against 14 other teachers from across the county school system for

SANFORD — The embattled Boys and Girls Clubs of Sanford/Lee County have at least two new backers for their plea for funds from the Sanford City Council. The City Council’s Law and Finance Committee on Wednesday discussed stalled talks to pitch in money for the nonprofit, which has struggled to recover after losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal grant funding this year. The Boys and Girls Clubs requested $50,000 in emergency funding from the city, but reluctant city officials tabled a decision on providing assistance at a meeting this month. Council members James Williams and Leopold Cohen, both of whom bemoaned the

Chocolate joins wine at the fest From Staff Reports The Sanford Pottery Festival has sweetened the deal. This year’s event, the ninth annual, will as usual feature the best clay works from about 100 of the region’s top potters. It’ll also include the wine-tasting tent — doubled in size — which debuted at last year’s festival. And now, chocolate. Six chocolatiers from North Carolina can be found in the lobby of the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center, home base for the festival, when doors open at 9 a.m. Saturday. They’ll be sharing and selling their specialty creations alongside the potters and vineries as part of a plan to keep the Sanford Pottery Festival

Nixon announced the resignations of top aides H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman, along with Attorney General Richard G. Kleindienst and White House counsel John Dean. In 1980, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands abdicated; she was succeeded by her daughter, Princess Beatrix. In 1990, hostage Frank Reed was released by his captives in Lebanon; he was the second American to be released in eight days.

Middle, Martin Bryant of East Lee Middle, Dee O’Neill of Greenwood Elementary, Melissa Palmer of J.R. Ingram Elementary, David Nugent of Bragg Street Academy, Julie Randolph of Southern Lee High, Karen Hamel of B.T. Bullock Elementary, Gaynell McIver of J. Glenn Edwards Elementary, Melissa Brewer of Deep River Elementary, Alyson Estridge of Floyd L. Knight, Tonya Comeaux of Lee Early College, Jamie Holt of West Lee Middle and Electra Johnson of Broadway Elementary. Teachers were nominated by each school and lauded for their dedication to students. Some were touted for expanding their students’ education. “Mr. Nugent makes my brain hurt,” wrote one of Nugent’s students at Bragg Street Academy. Others were succeeding with some students that might have been forgotten by lesser teachers. “She reaches students who some would consider unreachable,” wrote administrators at J. Glenn Edwards Elementary of McIver. Some were heralded as quiet leaders, like Keller at SanLee Middle, a health and physical education teacher known for his behind-the-scenes dedication to the school’s athletic program. And others were simply “heroes,” like 25-year veteran Melissa Palmer at J.R. Ingram Elementary. Palmer was recently forced to amputate a leg during a bout with cancer, but administrators at the school said her thoughts at the time were only for another friend facing the dreaded disease. “She always puts others first,” wrote J.R. Ingram leaders. “Everyone in this room is a winner tonight,” Moss said. Nevertheless, only Hamilton could walk away with the county honor, one that reflects the challenges of the teaching profession, Moss said. “Many of us are asked, ‘Who is the one person who made a difference in your life?’” Moss said. “It’s obvious that sitting in this room tonight are many who countless others would name.” The Sanford Area Chamber of Commerce hosted Thursday’s event.


Etheridge votes for resolution honoring Workers’ Mem. Day WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge (D-Lillington) voted Thursday to support H. Res. 375, a Congressional resolution supporting the goals and ideals of Workers’ Memorial Day. The resolution honors and remembers workers who have been killed or injured on the job. “My district and the Town of Garner have been changed forever by last year’s explosion that killed four workers and injured many others,” Etheridge said, referring to the 2009 explosion at the ConAgra Slim Jim facility in Garner that killed four employees. “We must never forget this tragedy and work to ensure that every workplace in North Carolina is a safe place to earn a wage.” Workers’ Memorial Day takes place annually around the world on April 28. It is an international day of remembrance and action for workers killed, disabled, injured or sickened by their work. — From staff reports

Northview and Deep River fire departments respond to a wood fire behind Saiden Technologies at 5618 Clyde Rhyne Drive in the Deep River area on Thursday.

Deadline today for home buyers From wire reports Time is running out to take advantage of the government’s homebuyer tax credits. Homebuyers must have a contract to purchase a home by the end of today in order to get a credit of up to $8,000. The credit has pushed about 900,000 additional buyers into the market, said Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National

Association of Realtors, a trade group. The additional stimulation has helped stabilize home prices, he added. “It is laying the foundation for more normal housing market conditions,” Yun said, “and helping assure that we have a sustainable economic recovery as homeowners don’t see further destruction of their wealth.” The government also

offered a tax credit to longtime residents who buy a new principal residence — no credits for vacation homes. They’re eligible for a credit of up to $6,500. To qualify as a first-time homebuyer, you must not have owned a home in the last three years. The tax credit is 10 percent of the purchase price of a home up to a maximum of $8,000. — The Associated Press

Fundraising for the land purchase is a major point of emphasis for the Spring Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival, which continues through Sunday. Shakori board members will man the booth by the main stage to answer questions and persuade attendees to drop some cash into the wooden donation box. So what happens if they fall short of the $75,000 goal? “We won’t,” Bridgman promised. “Failure is not an option.” The Shakori Hills festivals started in 2003 as a spinoff of the Finger Lakes Grassroots Festival in upstate New York (which is now in its 20th year). Shakori Hills has a similar feel to the annual Festival for the Eno in Durham. Both are family-friendly events with an eco-friendly focus, old-hippie communal vibe, and reliance on volunteer labor and musical acts from the acoustic/ Americana/roots end of the spectrum.

PITTSBORO (MCT) — The booth by the main stage of the Shakori Hills festival looked like it should be selling something. “No,” said Shakori Hills co-coordinator Sara Waters, “we’re buying the farm. Wait, that sounds bad. But it is what we’re doing.” After seven years of renting space for its spring and fall festivals, Shakori Hills is trying to become a landowner. The nonprofit organization’s board is trying to buy the bucolic 72-acre tract in Chatham County that has been the festival site since 2003. The asking price is $750,000. So the plan is to raise 10 percent of that for a down payment and take out a mortgage for the rest. The campaign kicked off with a benefit last month at the Carolina Brewery in Chapel Hill — “Our debutante ball,” joked Shakori Hills board president Regina Bridgman. That raised about $10,000 through donations and pledges.

Early voting numbers are abysmal


e hope that early voting totals for Lee County aren’t an indication of final turnout numbers this year. Sure, turnout is going to be low, as it is for every midterm primary. That’s to be expected, since voters feel that not a lot will be determined by their ballot. But come on. As of Wednesday, a grand total of 777 residents had voted in Lee County, about 2 percent of the 32,408 registered voters in this county. Abysmal is not a strong enough word to describe that number. Maybe we were spoiled by the 2008 Presidential race,

when more than 72 percent of this county’s registered voters cast ballots. But that’s not an excuse. Imagine if those candidates who were elected only worked every four years, when it was “important.” Some have also stated in comments on our website that not voting is actually a valid form of protest. We don’t agree. To the average citizen, the only voice you have is a vote. To elect not to vote out of protest only seems counterproductive. Nothing on the ballot, you say? Well, the most commented and viewed stories on our website are usually education

stories. Guess what — three of the seven seats on the Lee County Board of Education will be determined by this primary. If you have an opinion, voice it with your vote. Don’t have kids in school? Well, there’s something for you, too. If you’re a Democrat, you get to choose which candidate will get a shot at U.S. Sen. Richard Burr in November. If you’re a Republican, you get to choose who will face U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge. These are the two national race that voters in Lee County have the most say in. If the last year of tea parties and health care reform has not

fired you up enough to have an opinion in these seats, nothing will. You’re just not paying attention, so you can’t complain. The Lee County Board of Elections has two early voting sites: the McSwain Agricultural Center at 2420 Tramway Road in Sanford and the Board of Elections office at 225 S. Steele St. in Sanford. Sites are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. If you can’t make it today or Saturday, we implore you to vote on Tuesday. It’s your duty as citizens of Lee County and the United States of America.

Scott Mooneyham Today in North Carolina Scott Mooneyham is a columnist with Capitol Press Association

Judicial elections


ALEIGH — In recent years, North Carolina’s system for choosing judges has been alternately praised and condemned. The praise comes from those impressed with the state’s 2002 reforms for electing appellate court judges, changes that allowed candidates to qualify for public financing. To date, the reforms have largely prevented large sums of special interest money from pouring into races for the N.C. Court of Appeals and N.C. Supreme Court. ... The condemnation is aimed at the fact that North Carolina even holds judicial elections. Many people who work in the legal community want a system of judicial appointment, arguing that the reforms do nothing to improve voters’ knowledge of the judicial candidates whom they elect. When it comes to the outcome of judicial races, there’s plenty of evidence suggesting that gender and ballot position are more important than qualifications. ... This year, North Carolinians will elect four judges to the state Court of Appeals and one justice to the state Supreme Court. Two contested primaries will be held to whittle the nonpartisan races down to two candidates for the fall. Court of Appeals Judge Ann Marie Calabria faces two challengers, Superior Court Judge Mark Klass and District Court Judge Jane Grey, in a bid to keep her seat on the court. Calabria has been on the court since 2003. Prior to her election, she was a District Court Judge in Wake County. She previously practiced law in Cary and Fayetteville, and worked for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Klass, who lives in Lexington, has been a Superior Court judge since 1999. He previously worked both as a private practice lawyer and as an assistant district attorney. Gray, who lives in Raleigh, has been a Wake County District Court judge since 2002. She worked in the state Attorney General’s office for 18 years and as general counsel to the House speaker for two years. In the other contested primary, Court of Appeals Judge Rick Elmore faces three challengers — state Supreme Court clerk Steven Walker, Hillsborough lawyer Leto Copeley and Lillington lawyer Alton Bain. Elmore has been on the Court of Appeals since 2003. Prior to his election, he was a private practice lawyer in Greensboro. Walker has been clerk for state Supreme Court Justice Ed Brady since 2005, his first position after getting his law license that same year. Copeley has worked as a private practice lawyers since 1998 and is a graduate of Harvard Law School. Bain has been a partner in a Lillington law firm since 2001 and worked as a clerk to the Court of Appeals in the mid-1980s.

Still on probation S AN DIEGO — It’s a common case of mistaken identity — and a running joke among upper middle-class Lati-

nos. There are many stories, but here’s just one. A Mexican-American friend of mine who is a corporate executive was mowing his lawn in an affluent and predominantly white neighborhood. He was unshaven and dressed in work clothes when a passerby complimented him on the landscaping job and asked for a business card. “What’s the name of your company?” he asked. My friend smiled and responded: “Sprint.” Welcome to the club. You’re not really Latino until you’ve been mistaken for the valet, the gardener, the nanny, etc. That’s the gag. It’s good for a laugh. Yet being profiled by your neighbor is one thing, and being singled out by law enforcement is another. And so no one is amused by what is unfolding in the Grand Canyon state. Arizona Senate Bill 1070 is ghastly legislation signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer because she lacked the courage to stop the madness. It specifies: “For any lawful contact made by a law enforcement official ... where reasonable suspicion exists that the person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States, a reasonable attempt shall be made, when practicable, to determine the immigration status of the person.” Note the clever word choice. In order to get the ball rolling, an officer need only establish “lawful contact.” Misguided defenders of the legislation are desperately attempting to portray the law as consistent with how things have been done for years. They say that “lawful contact” means that the officer must have already pulled over a motorist or questioned him about a crime or infraction. The inference is that only people who break the law need worry about being asked for documents to prove they have the legal right to be in the United States. This is not so. Proponents spent months touting the bill because, they said, change is necessary. And now that it’s a law, they want to convince us that nothing has changed. Then why pass a law in the first place? Also, “lawful contact” is simply the opposite of “unlawful contact.” A police officer passing someone on the street and saying “Good morning” is lawful contact. And from that point, it’s game on. So the Fourth Amendment and the due process rights of a Latino population that accounts for about 30 percent of the state now hinge on how beat cops and state troopers interpret the phrase “reasonable suspicion.” What do you suppose the chances are that people with blond hair, fair skin and blue eyes will raise reasonable suspicions? Conversely, how many native-born Latinos will be hassled, inconvenienced and

Letters to the Editor It’s time for change on the Lee school board To the Editor: This is in response to Paul Gay’s April 27 letter to the editor. Mr. Gay and the others in the regime continue to misrepresent the facts about the “C” and “D” grades that were given by the “new” Lee County school board candidates. As the three candidates explained at The Sanford Herald-sponsored forum and several times since, the grades were given to the school system leadership and not the teachers or anyone else. This is not about getting votes. It is about replacing the leadership that has brought the school system to this level of performance. The candidates that Mr. Gay is endorsing have all been a part of this regime. As candidates Mark Akinosho, Shannon Gurwitch and Kim Lilley have said repeatedly, it is time that parents, school principals, teachers and taxpayers have a voice in how students are being educated. It is also time for the transparency that these “new” candidates will bring to the board. Speaking of transparency, Mr. Gay’s letter should have revealed the financial interest that he has in seeing that the school system regime doesn’t change. His business has retained the contract to provide certain insurance coverage for Lee County School System employees for years. I am not sure what Mr. Gay’s reference to his candidates as “genuine” means, unless he is referring to their record of being in lockstep with the regime’s leadership on every important issue. In this sense, they are, indeed, carbon copies of those already on the school board. Unintentionally, Mr. Gay’s letter should make the choices clear for those voters that want to see academic achievement and graduation rates improve in Lee County. With their own children in the school system, Mr. Akinosho, Mrs. Gurwitch and Mrs. Lilley are the candidates that will work hard to do so. TAMMY RAUSCH Sanford

unlawfully detained? This law is a reality check for all Latinos. It’s a helpful reminder that — as hard as we work, as much as we accomplish and progress — we are, by virtue of skin color or accent or Spanish surname, still on probation as far as some people are concerned. And we will be for life. Even as a Mexican-American who was born in the United States with a family whose roots in this country can be traced to the 19th century, to some of my countrymen I’m just one step removed from an illegal immigrant who arrived here from Mexico last week. Some readers even marvel at how well I’ve learned English since arriving here. I suppose they mean from my native Central California. We might be Rhodes scholars, federal judges, governors, FBI agents or Medal of Honor recipients and yet we’re just one short phrase away from being put in our place and forced to prove that we belong here. The phrase: “reasonable suspicion.” This law is also a different sort of reality check for everyone else. It clears up a mystery. Many Americans have long been baffled by the fact that Latinos who have the right to be in the United States — whether they are native-born citizens or here legally — will often interfere with efforts to harass, round up and remove illegal immigrants. Some of them want to know: “What’s this to you?” Others — in a tune familiar to American Jews — accuse the obstructionists of having “divided loyalties.” Still others assume it’s simply because these Latinos must have “relatives who are illegal.” Now you know the real reason. Look at Arizona. To some people, we’re all the same. Fine. In that case, this isn’t some someone else’s fight. This is ours. Game on.

The nonprofit recently announced that it would close for the first and last weeks of its popular summer program, pointing out it had lost roughly half of its annual $600,000 to $800,000 budget in grant funding due to the economic recession. The group has also requested $50,000 from Lee County government, although county commissioners have yet to discuss the nonprofit’s appeal for help. City Councilman Samuel Gaskins has urged Sanford to draft a fair policy on assistance for nonprofits, pointing out the city has pitched in to help the Lee County Economic Development Corporation and the Temple Theatre. Despite Williams’ and Cohen’s change of heart, some city officials continued to express concerns that helping the Boys and Girls Clubs would open up a floodgate of requests from beleaguered

prospect of the precedent set if the seven-member panel “bails out� the ailing group, did something of an aboutface in Wednesday’s threehour committee session. “The children need our help,� Cohen said. “It’s been a catastrophic year for just about everybody.� Council memberrs do not take action in committee meetings, but often prep for possible votes in its regular meeting, scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m. Cohen said the group’s $50,000 request might be a “little out of reach� for the city’s recession-strained budget, but anywhere from $10,000 to $25,000 in a onetime payment could be more manageable. Williams echoed Cohen’s sentiments, arguing the Boys and Girls Clubs work to keep area youth involved in com-

local nonprofits with worthy causes. “I do question setting another precedent in these economic times,� said Sanford Mayor Cornelia Olive. Councilman Charles Taylor said Sanford needs to gather input from other nonprofits and research what other municipalities have done in similar circumstances before taking any action. Taylor said city officials could be making a mistake by making a “hasty decision.� “We don’t need to do this quickly,� he said. “They’re not closing the doors tomorrow.� In the meantime, officials called on local businesses and churches to reach out to the Boys and Girls Clubs with help. The group got some good news this week when its annual golf tournament at Tobacco Road Golf Course Tuesday broke the $50,000 fundraising mark, a haul Boys and Girls Club leaders weren’t expecting during the recession.

Bank on Carthage Street, a great ride she happened upon sort of by accident. After she graduated from King's Business College in 1960, some of Anderson's classmates found work in banks and suggested she go into the industry as well. She landed a job at Carolina Bank, (currently BB&T) in Sanford, where she worked for 13 years before landing a position at Mid South Bank. For the next 36 years she watched the bank on Carthage Street change names several times, first to Peoples Bank, which merged with Planters to form Centura in 1990. Then in 2001, the Royal Bank of Canada acquired Centura and rebranded the chain RBC Centura. And Anderson has been there through many

changes in the banking industry. When she started, some savings accounts were paying 6 percent interest, she said. That number is down to around .21 percent today. She even predates the computers that the banking industry and almost every other facet of life depends so heavily on today. When the bank first got computers, she said, it took some "getting used to" to learn to work with them, but she did it. "At the time computers started showing up I knew I would have to learn to roll with the punches," she said. In fact, even the make up of the bank's staff has changed. When she started, there were many more men than women working in the industry. Now her bank has just one male employee. "Women have come a long way in banking," she said. "When I first

started, it was a man's world." Over the years she has watched several generations of families come through the bank for business and built relationships with most all of them. She said the interaction with customers will be the hardest thing to leave. "I have a lot of loyal customers," she said. "When they trust you, it makes a difference." Leaving will be hard, she said, but she is also excited to have some much-needed leisure time. She started thinking about retirement a year ago, when the bank put her on a reduced schedule. "They asked me to do part-time about a year ago," she said, "and I realized that I kind of liked (the time off.)" She said she plans to volunteer at Central Carolina Hospital and other local groups to make use of her people skills. She said she loves talking to people, and would miss the interaction too much if she didn't do something. Most of all, she said, she's going to miss her coworkers and customers. "I love what I do," she said. "I have been fortunate to work with so many good people."

growing and expanding. That was the original vision of festival co-founder Don Hudson, who this week said he regarded additions like the wine tasting and the chocolate vendors as â&#x20AC;&#x153;major opportunities for the Pottery Festival to give us a fighting chance to keep the event in Sanford... â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always spoken of the vision of the festival moving forward and developing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to have 50,000 to 100,000 people coming to Sanford to several events over a yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time. Sanford is poised for great opportunities in the coming years, and we think the Sanford Pottery Festival, as promised, has continued to promote this community.â&#x20AC;? More than 5,000 visitors are expected at the event over the weekend. Good weather â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the forecast is for unseasonably warm temperatures, but mostly dry skies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; could push the total closer to 10,000. When the first festival was held in 2002, it immediately became the largest event of its kind in the region. The festival, always scheduled the weekend before Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, uses it proceeds to help fund arts programs in local schools. The biggest initial goal, however, was to â&#x20AC;&#x153;present the public with the best selection of North Carolina pottery in one convenient place during the year,â&#x20AC;? according to Hudson. Its success gives Sanford bragging rights, not to mention the opportunity to showcase the Lee

County community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wherever I go in North Carolina, people always seem to know about our pottery festival,â&#x20AC;? said Bob Heuts, executive director of the Lee County Economic Development Corporation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It raises the visibility of our community in a significant and positive way.â&#x20AC;? Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foray into wine tasting gave the festival an added element and generated additional interest. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Celebration of N.C. Winesâ&#x20AC;? tent drew about 750 visitors from the festival. Volunteer David Nestor, who works on commercial and residential real estate for Adcock and Associates, coordinates the wine portion of the festival. He said a dozen vineyards will participate this year, requiring a tent twice as large as last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s; Nestor expects more than 1,500 festival-goers to check out the wine tasting over the next two days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wine tasting this year will be much bigger and better than it was in 2009,â&#x20AC;? Nestor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By 2012, we intend to produce â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The North State Wine Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; as a separate and related event to be held in the large field next door to the civic center.â&#x20AC;? The idea behind bringing in chocolate-makers is similar. The specialty chocolate booths are

expected to establish the foundation upon which Hudson and festival organizers hope will produce a separate â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chocolate and Gourmet Festivalâ&#x20AC;? in future years. The goal? To fill the large gymnasium of Central Carolina Community College, located just across the street from the original pottery festival, according to Jason Howard, who serves as logistics director of the festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a plenty of parking and so many possible locations to develop a series of related events to be held in Sanford on the same weekend that present plans call for adding a festivals built around barbecue and antiques as well as wine, chocolate and gourmet food,â&#x20AC;? said Howard, an electrical contractor whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been involved with the festival since its first year. There are also activities for children. In addition to receiving free admission to the festival, children aged 14 and under can buy unfinished pottery, paint it with glaze and have it fired on site for a creative keepsake or gift for teachers or grandparents. And the first 500 children who visit the â&#x20AC;&#x153;teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tentâ&#x20AC;? will receive one pound of authentic stoneware clay. Entry for the festival is $5 per person.

Burr is Dems’ foil as primary nears By GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — Two leading candidates for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate on Thursday separately criticized Republican incumbent Richard Burr as Elaine Marshall used the steps of a bank building and Cal Cunningham an 18-wheeler to make their points. Cunningham, a former state senator from Lexington, began a 10-stop tour in Charlotte and Salisbury with a big rig to symbolize what he calls the 18 times Burr voted while in Congress to send U.S. jobs overseas through trade deals and tax breaks. The truck also represents more goods being shipped on the state’s highways, which he said in an interview will occur if his job-creation proposals are approved. “We need to make things here,” Cunningham said. “We’ve got to rebuild

the manufacturing base.” Marshall spokes from steps outside the Wachovia Building in downtown Raleigh to call on Congress to approve a reform bill that seeks tougher oversight of financial institutions. Marshall accused Burr of obstructionism as GOP senators blocked debate earlier this week, but Republicans gave way Wednesday for votes to begin. Wells Fargo Corp. acquired Wachovia Corp. in late 2008 after the Charlotte-based bank lost billions of dollars on failed mortgages. “For over 100 years, Wachovia Bank stood as a proud example of North Carolina’s banking industry,” said Marshall, the state’s top securities regulators. The state lost Wachovia, she added: “We cannot allow this to happen again. It’s time to fix our broken financial system.” Marshall and Cunningham are among six candidates in next week’s

primary. Another leading Democratic candidate, Ken Lewis of Chapel Hill scheduled to campaign door-to-door Thursday evening in Orange County and speak later at a barbecue to talk about his jobs plan, a campaign spokesman said. Burr has his own primary against three GOP candidates, but his focus largely has been on the general election. “Unfortunately, the Democrats continue to run negative campaigns designed to deceive the people of North Carolina,” Burr campaign spokeswoman Samantha Smith said in a prepared statement. “They only want to maintain the status quo and continue the liberal agenda of reckless spending and growing government.” Marshall’s campaign said it began running a television ad in the Raleigh and Greensboro markets Thursday trumpeting what she calls her past record of challeng-

ing banks who preyed on the elderly and insurance companies who denied health care to patients. The ads will spread to eastern TV markets Friday, campaign official A.J. Carillo said. Cunningham has been running TV commercials for more than two weeks in the state’s six broadcast television markets, spokesman Jared Leopold said. Lewis began running radio ads this week but has yet to go on television. His latest radio ad argues Cunningham has been inconsistent on the subject of bonuses for bank regulators last year when he served on the state banking commission. Cunningham said he never voted for the bonuses, which were never given out. The top two vote-getters in each primary will advance to a June 22 runoff if the leading candidate doesn’t receive more than 40 percent of the vote.


Man with gun critical of Obama on Facebook

COSHOCTON, Ohio (AP) — A man arrested at a North Carolina airport who authorities say was armed and wanted to see President Barack Obama had questioned the president’s citizenship, a newspaper reported Thursday. Facebook postings apparently made last year by Joseph Sean McVey, 23, also refer to Obama by his middle name, Hussein, according to the Coshocton Tribune. The

newspaper said a source with access to McVey’s Facebook profile provided copies of screen shots. McVey had a handgun at his side when he caught the attention of officers in an Asheville Regional Airport parking lot Sunday just after the president departed aboard Air Force One, police said. His car was loaded with police gear, including a siren and lights, and had a note with formulas used for

firing a rifle with a scope, authorities said. Asheville Regional Airport Police Chief Jeff Augram said he is aware of the Facebook postings and that authorities are doing an exhaustive background check on McVey. James Mills, an Asheville attorney representing McVey, said he had no comment. McVey’s mother lives in Asheville. He lives in Coshocton, about 60 miles east of Columbus, where

he has been a member of a volunteer organization that assists police and fire crews at emergency scenes. McVey’s Facebook page on Thursday displayed little more than his name and high school to users other than his approved friends. A public comment from McVey could be found elsewhere on the site, on a page apparently set up by friends titled “Justice for Joseph ’Sean’ McVey.”

Autopsy: Head wounds killed board member

Lawmakers hear report on underutilized aircraft

RALEIGH (AP) — An autopsy has found North Carolina school board member Kathy Taft died from massive head wounds. Multiple media outlets reported Thursday that state medical examiners determined the 62-year-old Greenville resident was struck multiple times in the head by a heavy blunt object, but the type of object could not be determined. The autopsy also found she had been sexually assaulted. Taft died last month, three days after being attacked in the Raleigh residence of a friend, where she was recovering after plastic surgery. Raleigh police arrested 30-year-old Jason Keith Williford earlier this month and charged him with first degree rape and murder. He is scheduled to appear in court on May 10.

RALEIGH (AP) — The General Assembly’s watchdog agency says North Carolina state government should get rid of one-third of its aircraft and eliminate five hangars to save millions of dollars. A legislative panel approved Thursday the recommendations of the Program Evaluation Division, which says the state could save $8 million upfront and $1.5 million annually by selling 25 aircraft. The division report says 79 percent of the planes and helicopters were flown less than 200 hours per year — an industry threshold to determine if they’re worth keeping. Rep. David Lewis said he’s worried eliminating planes could threaten the state’s ability to fight forest fires. State Bureau of Investigation Director Robin Pendergraft said her agency’s planes are needed to assist with crime fighting and to transport suspects.

Dry weather raises possibility of drought RALEIGH (AP) — Unusually dry weather has returned to portions of central and southeastern North Carolina, which has experts on the lookout for possible drought conditions. A lack of significant rain has created what’s known as abnormally dry conditions in 26 counties stretching from Wilmington to parts of the Triangle and Triad. That’s the first time since early December that any part of North Carolina has experienced dry conditions. That doesn’t mean there’s a drought yet, but the state’s Drought Management Advisory Council is meeting weekly to keep an eye on the situation.

Police chief uninjured after his car is shot DURHAM (AP) — A North Carolina police chief may have unwittingly driven into the middle of a shootout that left a bullet hole in the windshield of his car. Authorities say Durham Police Chief Jose Lopez Sr. was driving an unmarked car downtown on Thursday afternoon when his car was hit by gunfire. He was not injured. Investigators think people in two other cars were shooting at each other and a stray bullet hit Lopez’s windshield. One of the other drivers was hit by gunfire and was taken to Duke University Hospital.

Perdueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steps: Reduce boards, reorganize state govâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t By GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Gov. Beverly Perdueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lengthy career as a legislator surely has taught her that heavy lifting will be required to get the General Assemblyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blessing to reorganize state government and eliminate state boards and commissions. Perdueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tackle both of these reforms â&#x20AC;&#x201D; made in a short aside during last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rollout of her state budget proposal â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is part of her announced priority to â&#x20AC;&#x153;set government straightâ&#x20AC;? by making it more responsive and efficient when state tax dollars are scarce. The governor said by November sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a reorganization plan to present to lawmakers. She also said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d give lawmakers in two to three weeks a list of about 100 state commissions and boards that should be eliminated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That will cause great discussion, so get ready for that,â&#x20AC;? Perdue, a former Senate budget-writer, told reporters. Everyone likes the idea of making government more lean and eliminating state panels that seemingly have outlived their usefulness. But the opposition comes in the details. Lawmakers and special interests get worried about losing their political turf and what they believe are important government duties and avenues for citizen involvement. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little wonder the last pruning of boards and commissions occurred in the mid-1980s. The last reorganization occurred in 1996 and the last significant attempt to consolidate government departments failed in 1995 when Republicans balked at Gov. Jim Huntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal to eliminate the Department of Crime Control and Public Safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have some areas where we can consolidate now,â&#x20AC;? said 13-term Rep. Jim Crawford, D-Granville, after a meeting when Perdueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget was presented to legislators,

but â&#x20AC;&#x153;you know how it is when it gets to this crowd. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all got something they want to protect.â&#x20AC;? There are more 400 boards and commissions alone in which a governor appoints some or all the members, according to a list on Perdueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Web site. Appointments also are made by the House speaker, Senate president pro tempore and other elected officials, so getting rid of a board requires the OK by many parties. New boards and commissions are formed essentially every year with laws by the Legislature or by executive order from the governor, but rarely are they shut down. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no permanent procedure in place for the General Assembly to review them periodically to determine whether they have outlived their usefulness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What were the intent of these things? Are they political or do they really serve some purpose?â&#x20AC;? asked Norris Tolson, cochairman of the Budget Reform and Accountability Commission, which, ironically, was created last year by Perdue. The commission is undertaking a broader review of boards and commissions. Political connections â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and potentially campaign financial support â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have played significant roles in the past as to who lands seats on high-profile panels such as the Board of Transportation and Board of Education. Getting on the remaining boards, Coble said, is more about whether the candidate has expertise in a particular subject â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for example, real estate brokers on the Real Estate Commission and well contractors on the Well Contractors Certification Commission â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and how willing the candidate is to serve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about 20 of them where campaign contributions make a difference, and knowing the governor makes a difference, and having legislative connections make a difference,â&#x20AC;? said Ran

Coble, executive director of the nonpartisan North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research, which wrote a 618-page report on boards and commissions in 1984. The centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report urged the Legislature to abolish or merge 98 boards and cap the number of boards by state departments or elected officials making appointments to encourage antiquated panels to be replaced. Lawmakers ended up abolishing 78 by 1987. Some of those recommended for elimination remain in place today, including several local historical commissions, a version of the Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Advisory Commission on Military Affairs and the North Carolina Rural Electrification Authority. It may be difficult for Perdue to revive talk of abolishing these boards. Perdue likes to promote North Carolina as a military-friendly state and one of the historic commissions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Tyron Palace Commission â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is based in her hometown of New Bern. Perdue may find a government reorganization plan easier thanks to predecessor Gov. Bob Scott, who led the state in the early 1970s through a process to consolidate more than 200 independent state agencies and institutions into what became 19 departments and offices. There are 20 today. A 1970 amendment to the state constitution gives governors the ability to rework state government as long as departments arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t added or eliminated. That means Perdue can submit changes to the Legislature in early 2011 and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take effect in mid-2012 if the House and Senate donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t specifically reject them. Tolson, a former House member and Cabinet secretary for Hunt and Gov. Mike Easley, said discussing possible changes with lawmakers this year could help reduce obstacles in 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That way, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a big surprise,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Durham man charged with impersonating Navy officer By TOM BREEN Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Durham man who interviewed US Navy officer candidates, addressed students at the University of North Carolina and was seen around town in the uniform of a Navy commander was in reality a civilian who bought his garb over the Internet, according to court documents in a criminal case. Christopher E. Shrewsbury was indicted by a federal grand jury in U.S. District Court on Tuesday. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charged with six counts stemming from his alleged impersonation of an officer of the U.S. Navy, with specific charges ranging from posing as an officer for a job interview to delivering a talk to Naval Reserve

Officer Training Corps students at UNC Chapel Hill. Shrewsbury is currently free on a $50,000 bond. The phone number for his Durham residence has been disconnected. His lawyer, federal public defender Eric Placke, declined to comment on Thursday. According to a criminal complaint, Shrewsbury, 44, had once been in the Navy, but received a bad conduct discharge in 1989 for unauthorized absence from his ship. The complaint alleges that Shrewsbury impersonated a naval officer over a period of several years, gaining access to the United Services Organization lounge at Raleigh-Durham International Airport and

even interviewing officer candidates at the U.S. Naval Recruiting Depot in Raleigh. Agents of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service based at Camp Lejeune reported observing Shrewsbury leaving his Durham home dressed in the uniform of a Navy commander. During an interview with an agent this month, the complaint says, Shrewsbury said he purchased a U.S. Navy uniform over the Internet in 2006 and wore it to job interviews. One count of the indictment charges him with impersonating a Navy officer when applying for a job with the Primrose Schools, but it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clear from the indictment whether he got that job.

2 coal miners found dead after roof collapse in Ky. mine

States sue marketers of auto service contracts

PROVIDENCE, Ky. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A rescue team found a second Kentucky miner dead Thursday after a roof collapse at an underground coal mine with a long history of safety problems. Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear identified the miners as Justin Travis, 27, and Michael Carter, 28. The collapse happened late Wednesday at the Dotiki Mine near Providence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our entire state mourns along with the families and friends,â&#x20AC;? Beshear said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite our sadness, we must press forward to the work ahead of us â&#x20AC;&#x201D; fully investigating what caused this accident and determining ways to avoid such accidents in the future.â&#x20AC;? Carl Boone, district supervisor for the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration, said crews have removed Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body from the mine, but, as of 4 p.m. Central, were still working to retrieve the body of Travis. Boone said the investigation into the collapse will begin as soon as it is determined that the mine is safe to enter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just have to take it one step at a time,â&#x20AC;? he said.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Several state attorneys general have sued two companies that sell automobile service contracts, alleging that they misled consumers by claiming the products were extended warranties. Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray says a lawsuit filed Thursday in Ohio alleges that Missouri-based U.S. Fidelis and California-based Credexx Corp. used misleading tactics to sell contracts administered by separate companies. Credexx does business as Auto One Warranty Specialists. Cordray says consumers have filed dozens of complaints. Besides Ohio, attorneys general in Idaho, Kansas, North Carolina and Washington filed complaints against both companies. Iowa, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin also sued U.S. Fidelis.

NEW ORLEANS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The edge of a massive oil spill thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become far worse than initially thought in the Gulf of Mexico was expected to reach the Louisiana shore by Thursday night while officials, the oil company, fishermen and others try to protect the fragile marshlands from an ecological disaster. As of late Thursday morning, part of the slick was about 3 miles from the Mississippi River delta, said National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration spokesman Charles Henry said. A blown-out well a mile underwater is leaking in three places, spewing 5,000 barrels a day into the gulf, five times more than originally thought. The leaks started after a drilling rig that BP PLC was operating exploded and sank last week 50 miles off the Louisiana coast. Those who count on the Gulf for their livelihoods fretted about the oozing oil thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heading to the coast. In Empire, La., Frank and Mitch Jurisich could smell the oil coming from just beyond the murky water where their family has harvested oysters for three generations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About 30 minutes ago we started smelling it,â&#x20AC;? Mitch Jurisich said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when you know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting close and it hits you right here.â&#x20AC;? It might be too late to stop the spill from reaching shore, but BP PLC said it might try a new technique that uses

Workers load oil booms onto a crew boat to assist in the containment of oil from a leaking pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico near the coast of Louisiana in Venice, La., Thursday. chemicals to break up the oil spewing from a blown-out well a mile underwater. The company also has asked the Department of Defense if it can provide better underwater equipment than is available commercially, said chief operating officer Doug Suttles. The request comes just as President Barack Obama dispatched Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson to help with the spill. The president said his administration will use â&#x20AC;&#x153;every single available resource at our disposalâ&#x20AC;? to respond. Obama directed officials to aggressively confront the spill, but the cost of the cleanup will fall on BP, spokesman Nick Shapiro said. The company is trying several approaches simultaneously as it scram-

bles to stop the flow of oil from the sunken rig. One, if approved, would use chemicals to break up the oil underwater, which has been done before, but never at these depths. If approved, it could start overnight. U.S. Coast Guard Rear Adm. Mary Landry called the idea â&#x20AC;&#x153;a novel, absolutely novel idea.â&#x20AC;? Burning the oil on the surface, booming off the spill to keep it contained and drilling a relief well that could help get the leak under control are all ideas the company have tried or plan to try. Suttles said the company expects to start drilling the relief well within 48 hours, but it could take some time to complete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to pursue every technique we can find,â&#x20AC;? he said. If the well cannot be closed, almost 100,000 barrels of oil, or 4.2 million gallons, could spill into the Gulf before crews can drill a relief well to alleviate the pressure. By comparison, the Exxon Valdez, the worst oil spill in U.S. history, leaked 11 million gallons into Alaskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prince William Sound in 1989.

Meanwhile, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal declared a state of emergency and announced that BP had agreed to allow local fishermen to assist in the expected cleanup. Under the agreement, shrimpers and fishermen could be contracted by BP to help. Jindal said the state was also training prison inmates to help clean up wildlife harmed by oil slicks moving toward shore. The federal government sent in skimmers and booms Thursday. BP was operating the Deepwater Horizon when it exploded last week. Of the 126 crew members aboard, 11 are missing and presumed dead. Suttles had initially disputed the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimate of how much was leaking, and that the company was unable to handle the operation to contain it. But early Thursday, he acknowledged on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Todayâ&#x20AC;? that the leak may be as bad as the government says. He said there was no way to measure the flow at the seabed and estimates have to come from how much oil makes it to the surface.

Obama calls Height a champion of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;righteous causeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Recognizing his debt to her quiet perseverance, an emotional President Barack Obama eulogized Dorothy Height as a humble champion of civil rights who deserved a seat of honor in American history. Though Height devoted decades to pursuing â&#x20AC;&#x153;a righteous cause,â&#x20AC;? Obama said she never cared about getting credit and often worked behind the scenes while the movementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s male leaders earned more attention and fame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What she cared about was the cause. The cause of justice, the cause of equality, the cause of opportunity, freedomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cause,â&#x20AC;? Obama told hundreds of mourners at the Washington National Cathedral. Height, who died in Washington last week at the age of 98, led the National Council of Negro Women for decades and marched with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. She received two of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest honors: the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1994 and the Congressional Gold Medal in 2004.

Stocks climb on earnings, drop in jobless claims

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Stocks surged higher after another series of upbeat earnings reports and a reading on unemployment provided more evidence of an improving economy. The Dow Jones industrials rose 122 points Thursday after the Labor Department said initial claims for unemployment benefits fell last week. And companies including Motorola, Time Warner Cable and Starwood Hotels & Resorts reported earnings that topped analystsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; forecasts. It was the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second straight winning day after a plunge Tuesday that took the Dow down 213. Greeceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt problems, one of the triggers for that slide, appeared less dire Wednesday and Thursday, and that allowed investors to focus on the growing signs of healing in the U.S. The Labor Department said first-time claims dipped to 448,000, slightly above analystsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; forecast of 445,000, according to Thomson Reuters. It was the second weekly drop and lifted hopes that layoffs are slowing. Dealmaking and strong corporate earnings reports added to the growing optimism. Hewlett-Packard Co. said late Wednesday it is buying smart phone maker Palm Inc. in an all-cash deal worth $1.4 billion.

NATION BRIEFS Florida Gov. Crist will run for Senate as an independent

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Florida Gov. Charlie Crist says he is abandoning the Republican Senate primary to run as an independent. Crist’s decision Thursday to drop out of the Aug. 24 primary comes amid plummeting support from conservatives and polls showing he would lose to tea party favorite Marco Rubio. He says people want someone who is more concerned about standing up for them than about standing up for special interests or party. The move sets up a probable three-way race between Crist, Rubio and Democratic U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek in November’s general election. Crist was leading in the polls a year ago until he angered conservatives by embracing President Barack Obama and his $787 billion federal stimulus plan.

Navy to allow women to serve on submarines

KINGS BAY NAVAL SUBMARINE BASE, Ga. (AP) — The first U.S. women allowed to serve aboard submarines will be reporting for duty by 2012, the Navy said Thursday as the military ordered an end to one of its few remaining gender barriers. The cramped quarters and scant privacy aboard submarines, combined with long tours of up to 90 days at sea, kept them off-limits to female sailors for 16 years after the Navy began allowing women to serve on all its surface ships in 1994. There were some protests, particularly from wives of sub sailors, after the military began formulating a plan last fall. But it received no objections from Congress after Defense Secretary Robert Gates notified lawmakers in mid-February that the Navy intended to lift the ban. The deadline for Congress to intervene passed at midnight Wednesday. Rear Adm. Barry Bruner, who led the Navy’s task force on integrating women onto submarines, brushed aside questions from reporters about the potential for sexual misconduct or unexpected pregnancies among a coed crew.

Castro pleaded guilty in November to murdering a federal officer near Campo, a mountainous area about 60 miles east of San Diego. He told authorities that he and others were attempting to rob the agent, Robert Rosas. The sentencing came as a furious debate rages around the nation on a new Arizona law that requires local and state law enforcement officers to question people about their immigration statuses if there’s reason to suspect they’re in the country illegally The courtroom was packed with uniformed Border Patrol agents as the judge read a letter written by the defendant apologizing to the family of the 30-year-old Rosas. Rosas was shot in the head, from behind and while lying on the ground. Castro’s attorney had argued that two accomplices now in Mexico fired the fatal shots.

Wyoming governor pushed to cancel Ayers’ visit LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Dave Freudenthal was among those who agreed with canceling a talk by 1960s radical William Ayers at the University of Wyoming earlier this month. In response to a records request by The Associated Press, the university on Friday released e-mails from the governor’s chief of staff, Chris Boswell, and others regarding Ayers’ visit. Ayers co-founded the Weather Underground, a Vietnam-era anti-war group that claimed responsibility for a series of nonfatal bombings, including nonfatal explosions at the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol. Boswell said in one e-mail that Freudenthal would personally call for rescinding Ayers’ invitation if UW President Tom Buchanan preferred. The university cited security concerns in canceling Ayers’ talk. Ayers spoke at UW on Wednesday night after a federal judge forced the school to host him.

Obama takes reform off agenda By SUZANNE GAMBOA Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Immigration reform has become the first of President Barack Obama’s major priorities dropped from the agenda of an electionyear Congress facing voter disillusionment. Sounding the death knell was Obama himself. The president noted that lawmakers may lack the “appetite” to take on immigration while many of them are up for re-election and while another big legislative issue — climate change — is already on their plate. “I don’t want us to do something just for the sake of politics that doesn’t solve the problem,” Obama told reporters Wednesday night aboard Air Force One. Immigration reform was an issue Obama promised Latino groups that he would take up in his first year in office. But several hard realities — a tanked economy, a crowded agenda, election-year politics and lack of political will — led to so much foot-dragging in Congress that, ultimately, Obama decided to set the issue aside. With that move, the president calculated that an immigration bill would not prove as costly to his party two years from now, when he seeks re-election, than it would today, even though some immigration

WASHINGTON (AP) — A firstof-a-kind prostate cancer treatment that uses the body’s immune system to fight the disease received federal approval Thursday, offering an important alternative to more taxing treatments like chemotherapy. Dendreon Corp.’s Provenge vaccine trains the immune system to fight tumors. It’s called a “vaccine” even though it treats disease rather than prevents it. Doctors have been trying to develop such a therapy for decades, and Provenge is the first to win approval from the Food and Drug Administration. Experimental vaccines to treat other cancers — including the deadly skin disease melanoma and an often fatal childhood tumor called neuroblastoma — are already in late-stage development.

Teen gets 40 years in Border Patrol agent’s murder

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A 17-year-old Mexican was sentenced Thursday to 40 years in prison for the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent who was shot several times in the head during a robbery attempt. Christian Daniel Castro Alvarez sat silently with his head down throughout the sentencing by U.S. District Judge M. James Lorenz in San Diego.

reformers warned that a delay could so discourage Democratic-leaning Latino voters that they would stay home from the polls in November. Some Democrats thought pushing a bill through now might help their party. If it failed, they could blame Republican resistance, though in reality many Democrats didn’t want to deal with an immigration bill this year either. Perhaps seeing the handwriting on the wall, top Senate Democrats released a legislative framework for immigration reforms anyway. The draft proposal, obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday, called for, among other things, meeting border security benchmarks before anyone in the country illegally can

By Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi offered little hope that the issue was still alive on Capitol Hill. “If there is going to be any movement in this regard, it will require presidential leadership, as well as an appetite, is that the word? ... as well as a willingness to move forward in the Congress,” she said. House Republican leader John Boehner was more blunt. “There is not a chance that immigration is going to move through the Congress,” he said Tuesday.

About 160 people, including religious leaders from around the nation, called for immigration reform at a rally in Kenosha, Wis., Thursday.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, the Democrats’ leading advocate for immigration reform, has said he voted for health care reform on the understanding that Obama and congressional Democrats would move a major immigration bill. Even though he would like to see Latinos turn out to vote for Democrats in 2010, Gutierrez said “many will probably decide to stay home.” However, he added, a strict, new immigration law in Arizona may change that dynamic. The law requires law enforcement officers to question anyone they suspect is in the country illegally. “On one hand you are not going to vote because you don’t believe people you voted for are doing a good enough job,” Gutierrez said. “Then you say, ’I got to vote, because the enemy is so mean and vindictive, I got to get out there.”’ The Hispanic vote is growing, largely because of Latinos’ increasing population. The 9.7 million Latinos who cast ballots in 2008 made up about 7.4 percent of the electorate, according to a 2009 Pew Research Center study.

Capsule reviews of new â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Secret of the Kellsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; not as good as what meets the eye â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nightmare,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Furry Vengeanceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By The Associated Press


ust as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Secret of the Kellsâ&#x20AC;? pays homage to the enduring spirit behind an ancient, illuminated Celtic text, so too is the film a sumptuous throwback to the vivid artistry of 2-D, hand-drawn animation. In that vein, this Oscar-nominated fable from director Tomm Moore and the producers behind the sublime â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Triplets of Bellevilleâ&#x20AC;? also summons the influences of past and present animated masters, particularly the recent works of Hayao Miyazaki (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spirited Away.â&#x20AC;?) Set in the ninth century inside the Monastery of Kells, the film opens as Abbot Cellach (Brendan Gleeson), a former illuminator, now redirects his talents toward an obsessive effort to construct a giant wall around the abbey to keep out marauding, rapidly approaching Viking invaders. Abbot expects Brendan (Evan McGuire), his young nephew, to follow in his footsteps. However, the star-eyed Brendan prefers to spend his time apprenticing

with other monks in the scriptorium. When master illustrator Aidan (Mick Lally) eludes the Vikings and arrives at the abbeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gates, he brings the Book of Iona-cum-Kells with him. Aidan enlists Brendanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help to finish the book, putting Brendan squarely at odds with his uncle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Secret of Kellsâ&#x20AC;? posits several mature themes, including a healthy helping of ethnic, religious, and pagan imagery.

sulating a divide inside the Christian church, Abbot remains preoccupied with the protection from evil, while Aidan espouses changing the world through truth and beauty. However, as you might expect with a luminescent fiction about the making of a musty medieval manuscript, the plot fails to stir any emotional resonance. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impressive aesthetics outstrip its kid-friendly storytelling, which is as reductive as a Saturday morning cartoon. Like many illustrated books, the strength of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Secret of Kellsâ&#x20AC;? is its pictures, not their captions.

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a psycho killer and all, but still, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been through a lot since the original â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Nightmare on Elm Streetâ&#x20AC;? back in 1984. After all those sequels, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think arthritis would have set into those knived fingers of his. The sixth â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elm Streetâ&#x20AC;? movie allegedly was the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Final Nightmare,â&#x20AC;? and still more films followed. Now, we have a remake of the first movie with Jackie Earle Haley filling in for the venerable Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger. Wes Cravenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s core nugget of a concept remains intact: If you die in your dreams, you die in real life. It was truly inventive and disturbing then, and it allowed for an exploration of the frightening power of the subconscious.

now, though, the novelty has long since worn off, and cheap, generic scares are all that are left.

As Dan supervises the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rocky Springsâ&#x20AC;? development, an uprising takes form and the forestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s animals (a mixture of real-life, trained animals and CGI) resort to guerrilla warfare.

Hunter says she did not wreck John Edwardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home

CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; John Edwardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mistress said on Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s episode of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Oprah Winfrey Showâ&#x20AC;? that she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe she destroyed the former presidential candidateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marriage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not my experience that a third party wrecks a home,â&#x20AC;? Rielle Hunter told Winfrey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe the problems exist before a third party comes into the picture.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;So you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you wrecked his home?â&#x20AC;? Winfrey asked Hunter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do not believe I wrecked his home,â&#x20AC;? Hunter said. Hunterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appearance on Winfreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show is her first televised interview since the former North Carolina senator first admitted two years ago that he had an affair with her. In January, Edwards said he and Hunter have a 2-year-old daughter after initially denying it. He and his wife, Elizabeth Edwards, are now separated. Hunter told Winfrey she believes people see her negatively because of the affair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people bought into the myth of the marriage, the Edwardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; marriage, as being a storybook story and it was

Hunter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It fits into the two-dimensional story line.â&#x20AC;? Hunter told Winfrey she met Edwards at a hotel and she â&#x20AC;&#x153;just turned to him and said â&#x20AC;&#x2122;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so hotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and he practically jumped in my arms.â&#x20AC;? She said the two had fourhour long phone conversations and she fell in love with him. She also said Edwards was in â&#x20AC;&#x153;extreme conflictâ&#x20AC;? about running for president. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if it was the right thing to do because he had personal problems,â&#x20AC;? Hunter said. She said Elizabeth

Edwards found out about the affair by finding a cell phone that Hunter had purchased for Edwards. Hunter said Elizabeth Edwards made a call on the phone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I answered the phone, said â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hey baby,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and she hung up on me,â&#x20AC;? Hunter said. Hunter said John Edwards was â&#x20AC;&#x153;very graciousâ&#x20AC;? when he found out she was pregnant, but that it happened at the wrong time. She said the couple didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use birth control. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was married to someone else,â&#x20AC;? Hunter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the middle of running for the presidency. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not great timing.â&#x20AC;? Hunter said it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

John Edwards admitted the affair in the interview, but denied the baby was his. GQ magazine last month published an interview with Hunter in which she addressed the scandal. She told the magazine the affair ended in July 2008 and that the relationship is now something â&#x20AC;&#x153;different.â&#x20AC;? On Thursday, she refused to tell Winfrey the status of her relationship with Edwards, saying itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;private.â&#x20AC;? Hunter also posed for photos for GQ that show her on a bed, barelegged in a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s white dress shirt and a pearl necklace. In another shot, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lying on her back holding her daughter in her arms. Hunter told Winfrey posing for the photos was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;huge mistake.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I was thinking was I would like to have one sexy shot where the world can see me as a beautiful woman as opposed to all those photos that are out there of me looking like some Wicked Witch of the West,â&#x20AC;? Hunter said.

The 29-year-old hotel heiress, actress and self-promoting businesswoman refused nine requests for print and broadcast interviews she should have given under her contract, said investor attorney Bryan West. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We paid her $1 million, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re entitled to get at least a portion of that back,â&#x20AC;?

the dispute, did not attend Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearing. She said previously that although dissatisfied with the finished â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pledge This!â&#x20AC;? cut, she wanted the college sorority romp to succeed and worked hard to make that happen. Yet the film only made $2.9 million. Moreno previously rejected the investorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; effort to sue Hilton for $8.3 million in damages, which included the $1 million she was paid for her acting and as executive producer. But he left open the possibility that she might have to repay some or all of that fee as restitution if she did not fulfill her publicity obligations. Moreno did not indicate when he would rule. The case centers on determining the value of the appearances Hilton did against the cost of those she rejected, which ranged from a proposed appearance on NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonight Showâ&#x20AC;? to phone chats with several British publications. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The question is, what is the value of what she did do? Because she did do something,â&#x20AC;? Moreno said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do I quantify it?â&#x20AC;? Hilton was sued by attorney Michael Goldberg, a court-appointed receiver for a now-defunct entertainment company that was the major investor in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pledge This!â&#x20AC;? The company, Worldwide Entertainment Group, was shut down as a suspected $300-million Ponzi scheme by the Securities and Exchange Commission, and Goldberg is attempting to recoup losses for some 3,300 investors in the company.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Andy Griffith Showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; actress robbed in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mayberryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; MOUNT AIRY (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The actress who played Thelma Lou on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Andy Griffith Showâ&#x20AC;? was robbed in the town that inspired the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idyllic Mayberry setting, after moving to the area to avoid big city crime. Betty Lou Lynn had her wallet stolen Lynn at a shopping center in Mount Airy, the birthplace of Andy Griffith. The Mount Airy News reports that police arrested Shirley Walter Guynn of Cana, Va. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being held in Surry County Jail on a $10,000 bond. It was not immediately clear Thursday if he has a lawyer. In an earlier interview with the newspaper, the 83-year-old Lynn said she moved to Mount Airy after being robbed three times in Los Angeles. In the TV series, Thelma Lou was the girlfriend of Deputy Barney Fife, played by Don Knotts.

Jobless claims fall, higher than expected

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The number of Americans filing claims for unemployment benefits dropped for a second consecutive week, further evidence that the job market is slowly improving. The Labor Department said Thursday that initial applications for jobless benefits dropped by 11,000 to 448,000, the lowest level in four weeks. The new total was slightly higher than economists had expected. The four-week average for claims edged up slightly to 462,500, still above the level that economists believe signals sustained improvements in the job market. Claims have been on a rollercoaster in recent weeks, posting sharp increases in the first two weeks of April and then falling for the past two weeks. Part of those swings reflected troubles

Congress debates future of Puerto Rico after referendum WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The House on Thursday took up legislation that could set in motion changes in Puerto Ricoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 112-year relationship with the United States, including a transition to statehood or independence. The House bill would give the 4 million residents of the island commonwealth a twostep path to expressing how they envision their political future. Initially, eligible voters, including those born in Puerto Rico but residing in the United States, would vote on whether they wish to keep their current political status or opt for a different direction. If a majority are in favor of changing the current situation, the Puerto Rican government would be authorized to conduct a second vote and people would choose among four options: statehood, independence, the current commonwealth status or sovereignty in association with the United States. Congress would have to vote on whether Puerto Rico becomes a state. Pedro Pierluisi, Puerto Ricoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nonvoting delegate to the House, said that while the island has had votes on similar issues in the past, Congress has never authorized a process where Puerto Ricans state whether they should

remain a U.S. territory or seek a nonterritorial status.

Man stabs 28 kids, 3 adults at Chinese kindergarten

TAIXING, China (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The screams of the 4-year-olds inside the kindergarten could be heard out in the street. When people ran in to investigate, they found what one witness said was a scene â&#x20AC;&#x153;too horrible to imagineâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; blood everywhere as a knife-wielding man slashed 28 children, two teachers and a security guard Thursday in the second such school attack in China in two days. Experts called it a copycat rampage triggered by similar incidents Wednesday and last month. They said the wave of school attacks falls amid poor care for the mentally unstable and growing feelings of social injustice in the fast-changing country. Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attack at the Zhongxin Kindergarten left five students hospitalized in critical condition in the eastern city of Taixing, said Zhu Guiming, an official with the municipal propaganda department. Two teachers and the security guard were also hurt. The official Xinhua News Agency identified the attacker as Xu Yuyuan,type:bold,italic; a 47-year-old unemployed man using an eight-inch (20centimeter) knife. No motive was given.

Tourney to raise money for B&G Club Proceeds to go toward Club’s Hooked on Fishing program NCAA APPROVES 68-TEAM TOURNAMENT

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The road to the Final Four will have a new look next season. On Thursday, the NCAA’s board of directors approved expansion from 65 to 68 teams and endorsed a proposal to add three more opening-round games to the schedule. It’s only the second time in a quarter-century that the NCAA has increased the number of teams competing for the men’s national championship. Now it’s time to start mapping out the details, which could include putting at-large teams in the early games. “The (men’s basketball) committee will have to study any variety of options and certainly the notion of looking at options involving the last at-large teams in would be one possible option,” NCAA vice president Greg Shaheen told The Associated Press. “We would expect the committee to examine all of the options.” The decision was not a surprise. NCAA officials recommended the 68-team field last week after the public loudly complained that going to 80 or 96 teams would water down the NCAA’s marquee event, and network executives insisted they did not need more tourney games to make a profit on the next television contract. So the NCAA backed the most modest expansion, at least for now. The board gave unanimous consent to the 68-team field with a caveat — it wants the “play-in” games to have more significance. “Expanding to 68 teams gave us an opportunity to involve more teams in the championship, and in doing that, we were able to enhance the experience of the opening-round game,” Clemson president James Barker, the committee chairman, said in a statement. It’s the first time since 2001, when the NCAA added one team to the 64-team team field that it has expanded. The NCAA went from 48 to 64 teams in 1985.


SANFORD — This year’s Carolina Trace Barry Butzer Memorial Fishing Tournament and Golf Outing is going to be extra special. Not only will the event, now in its second year, honor the life of

the late Barry Butzer, a longtime Sanford resident and volunteer, but all of the Butzer proceeds will benefit the Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs (HOFNOD) program at

the Lee County Boys and Girls Club. There will be two fishing tournaments on Saturday. The Adult Bass Tournament will begin at 7 a.m. on Saturday at Carolina Trace. At 8:30 a.m., the Family Division children’s tournament, which will feature members of the Lee County Boys and Girls Club, will begin. “We’re all very excited,” said Libby Bibb, the director of the

Trace Union of Fervent Fisherman (TUFF). “We’re almost at full. We’ve got 30 boats for bass fishing teams and we have 28 teams right now. It’s an exciting time and we’re all looking forward to it.” The golf outing features tee times between 9 and 10 a.m. Saturday morning at the Robert T. Jones designed Carolina Trace

Grace seeking more history By ALEX PODLOGAR

NBA ASHLEY GARNER/The Sanford Herald


INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) — LeBron James shot lefthanded layups and short jumpers at practice Thursday, but the Cavaliers superstar is not expected to miss any of Cleveland’s playoff games because of his strained right elbow and bone bruise. James was re-examined Wednesday night by team doctors, who took more X-rays and an MRI exam that revealed the strain and a bruised bone near the elbow. James was not wearing a padded sleeve over the elbow at practice Thursday, but acknowledged it was more of a film session and walkthrough rather than a physical practice. He did sit out one portion of contact drills. “The best thing about it is there’s no structural damage,” James said. “The docs have given me clearance that I can’t hurt it worse and I can go out and play. Maybe it’s a strain in the muscle or the tendon.”

Falcons move on By ALEX PODLOGAR

SANFORD — Rested and healthy for the first time in a while, the Lee Christian Falcons are hoping to play the role of spoiler in the NCCSA postseason.

And after a convincing 2-0 win over Faith Christian in the state tournament’s play-in game on Thursday, they are in a position to do just that. The sixth-seeded Falcons’ girls’ soccer team advanced to the opening round of the NCCSA State Soccer Tournament,

where they will play No. 3 seed Salem Baptist today at 4 p.m. “We feel good about our chances at pulling the upset and advancing our season even further,” said Lee Christian coach Eric Davidson.

SANFORD — The Grace Christian soccer team is playing for history now. After collecting their highest finish in all their seasons in the NCCSA 3-A West Conference, the Crusaders will be looking to put their stamp on the postseason when they open tournament play today. Grace Christian (7-7-1) finished fourth in the league standings and are rewarded for their historic finish with a home game in the opening round of the NCCSA State Soccer Tournament against fifth-seeded Gospel Light at 5 p.m. The Crusaders did not beat the Lions during the teams’ regular season series, and settled for a 2-2 tie on April 16. The Lions scored on a penalty kick with 2 minutes remaining in that game, and Grace Christian misfired on a penalty kick of their own in overtime that would have won the game. In the teams’ first meeting in the season-opener on March 9, Gospel Light prevailed 2-0 when the Crusaders were missing a number of starters. Grace Christian is a different team now, though, and is led by All-State sophomore Amanda Norris, who has scored 15 goals this season. Taylor Hilliard is another offensive threat, and was named to the All-Region First Team. And the future is bright for the Crusaders under second-year head coach Caleb Dickens. They boast just one senior and have three juniors, while starting a 7th-grader, an 8th-grader, a freshman, six sophomores and two juniors.


Woods all wet after sluggish 1st round By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

CHARLOTTE — Tiger Woods delivered a few memorable shots of his own Thursday at Quail Hollow on a pleasant day that produced birdies and eagles and plenty of excitement.

It’s just not what he had in mind. He hit a tee shot into the water on the par-3 17th that produced little reaction except to hold


out his hand for another ball. He hit his next tee shot into the water and had to scramble for bogey. And he wound up with a 2-over 74 that left him nine shots behind Bo Van Pelt and ended his streak of 21 straight rounds at par or better. “I hit a bunch of balls left, I hit a bunch of balls right, hit a

few down the middle,” Woods said. “And that was about it.” For everyone else — Masters champion Phil Mickelson included with his 70 — there was so much more. Mickelson had a severe stomach ailment that forced

Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Willis shuts down Twins, 3-0

DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dontrelle Willis pitched four-hit ball over six-plus innings in perhaps his best performance with the Detroit Tigers, a 3-0 win over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday. Willis (1-1) struck out six â&#x20AC;&#x201D; his highest total since 2007 when he was with the Florida Marlins â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and walked two. Joel Zumaya struck out two in two perfect innings and Jose Valverde pitched a hitless ninth for his seventh save in eight chances. Carl Pavano (3-2) gave up three runs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; two earned â&#x20AC;&#x201D; on seven hits and two walks over eight innings for the Twins. White Sox 7 Rangers 5 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Paul Konerko hit two home runs after Chicago took advantage of a wild pitch, two errors and two walks to go ahead of Texas and avoid a three-game sweep. Konerko leads the majors with 10 homers after hitting a solo drive in the eighth and a two-run shot in the ninth. He also drove in another run with a sacrifice fly. Rangers starter Scott Feldman pitched into the seventh with a two-run lead, but was gone after an error and a walk against the first two batters. Darren Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Day (0-1) was the loser. Diamondbacks 13, Cubs 5 CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ian Kennedy pitched eight strong innings for his first victory in 2 1/2 years and Adam LaRoche drove in five runs with two homers and a double as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Chicago Cubs 13-5 on Thursday. Kelly Johnson and Chris Snyder also connected for Arizona, which leads the majors with 33 homers. Johnson, who has an NL-high nine homers and has gone deep six times in the last seven games, also had three singles. Cardinals 10, Braves 4 ST. LOUIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rookie David Freese homered, doubled and drove in six runs as the Cardinals sent Atlanta to its ninth straight loss. The Braves wrapped up an 0-7 road trip, their first winless swing of seven or more games since September 1949 when the franchise was located in Boston and went 0-8 in Philadelphia and Brooklyn. Adam Wainwright (4-1) worked six solid innings as the Cardinals completed a four-game sweep.

SPORTS BRIEFS Rapper Eminem rips Roethlisberger in new song

Davis Love III, left, and NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson look at the fifth green during the pro-am for the Quail Hollow Championship golf tournament at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte on Wednesday.

Johnson smooths out hard feelings with Gordon PHILADELPHIA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jimmie Johnson walked onto a stage where some of his biggest fans got to ask questions of the four-time defending NASCAR champion. One of the easiest suddenly seemed like the thorniest after the last two weeks: Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your favorite driver? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jeff Gordon.â&#x20AC;? Johnson smiled and the crowd laughed at his response. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one way to diffuse talk of a bubbling feud between the Hendrick Motorsports teammates. Behind the scenes at Hendrick, the four-time Cup champions needed a second straight week of talks after curt words followed incidents on the track. Johnson said on Thursday team owner Rick Hendrick told him and Gordon not to let their bubbling feud start â&#x20AC;&#x153;breaking apart the organization.â&#x20AC;? Johnson, Gordon and Hendrick spoke together on the phone this week to smooth over a rough patch in the relationship between

the drivers. The championship teammates tangled on the track in successive weeks, leading Gordon to lash out at Johnson after Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race at Talladega Superspeedway. Johnson said Hendrick understood they are competitive drivers who just want to win. But Hendrick didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the rivalry to split apart the race teams that work so closely together. Johnson said Hendrick told him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You guys need to voice your opinions, handle things on the track as you see fit, but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not let this carry on too far and affect the race shop.â&#x20AC;? Johnson made a mistake that ultimately led to Gordonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wreck at Talladega. That came a week after the two had a run-in at Texas Motor Speedway. Johnson says he was surprised that Gordon, also a four-time Cup champion, lashed out at him on national TV after Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race. He says his relationship with Gordon has changed over the years.

The car unveiling was done Thursday at JR Motorsports on what would have been the seventime NASCAR championâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 59th birthday. He was killed in a 2001 accident at Daytona, and his number has not been used in the Sprint Cup Series since.

They were close friends who â&#x20AC;&#x153;were running hard, having a blastâ&#x20AC;? as single guys, but are now more likely as married family men to discuss diapers and strollers.

PITTSBURGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Eminem mentions Ben Roethlisberger in his latest song. The million-selling rapper refers to the Steelersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; troubled quarterback in a new song called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despicable.â&#x20AC;? The song includes explicit lyrics and the lines: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather turn this club into a bar room brawl. Get as rowdy as Roethlisberger in a bathroom stall.â&#x20AC;? A 20-year-old college student accused Roethlisberger of sexual assault following a March 3 incident in a Milledgeville, Ga., nightclub.

Tyreke Evans wins NBA Rookie of the Year award SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sacramento point guard Tyreke Evans beat out Golden Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stephen Curry and Milwaukeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brandon Jennings to win the NBA Rookie of the Year award. Evans received the honor Thursday after becoming the fourth rookie ever to average at least 20 points, five rebounds and five assists per game. He joined an illustrious club that includes Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan and LeBron James. Evans was the fourth pick in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NBA draft after spending one season at Memphis. He led all rookies in scoring at 20.1 points per game, was second in assists at 5.8 per game and fifth in rebounds at 5.3 Evans is the first Sacramento player ever to win the award. Phil Ford, Jerry Lucas, Robertson and Maurice Stokes won it before the franchise moved to California in 1985.

Currently, the event has 16 participants registered to play golf and needs 24 to be full. “If we get more people to come by that are interested in playing golf, there’s a possibility that Trace will extend some tee times to the afternoon. So, there will still be a chance in case for people interested in playing if we get full Saturday morning.” Butzer was the recipient of the 2008 Rotarian of the Year from Jonesboro Rotary Club and also earned The Herald’s 2008 Lifetime Achievement Award for his commitment of service above self.

who joined Erica Davidson on the NCCSA 3-A West All-Region Second Team. The lead held up at halftime. After that, Lee Christian got an insurance goal when Skylar Dubuc found the back of the net with an unassisted goal in the

match’s 59th minute for the final margin. “It was one of the best games we’ve played all year,” Davidson said. The Falcons had split the regular season series with Faith, winning 3-0 at home and losing 3-0 on the road.

helped instruct the Lee County Boys and Girls Club that were involved in the local Sanford HOFNOD program. “Barry Butzer volunteered so much in Sanford,” said Bibb. “He was extremely well known around the community for his volunteerism. He was always excited about fishing and everything in the community. This event is to help honor him and his name. We want to help keep his spirit alive with this tournament.” The Department of Juvenile Justice eliminated the First Fisherman Foundation, the organization that oversaw the HOFNOD programs at different Boys and Girls Clubs across the nation. “It breaks my heart that the budget was cut like that,” said Bibb. “The proceeds this year will go to help fund the program here in Lee County to keep it going. It’s a great program that helps the youth in the area. It’s a great

program with a great curriculum. It’s a shame that the budget was cut and funding was stopped.” In the Adult Bass Tournament, if a registered entrant catches a 17pound largemouth bass, which is a North Carolina state record, they will win a brand new Toyota Tundra from Toyota of Sanford. The tournament will feature several rotary clubs of Sanford and local BASS fishing clubs. “Carolina Trace is such an underfished lake,” said Bibb. “I’m excited to see what these professional fisherman can bring out of the lake. It’s going to be an exciting time for people interested in fishing.” For anyone interested in registering for the Adult or Children’s division of the fishing tournament, Bibb can be reached at (919) 499-1300. To sign up for golf, contact Mike Krick, the head golf pro at Carolina Trace at (919) 499-5611.

The opening round of the Quail Hollow Championship was even better, as Van Pelt made birdie on all the par 5s and made it through the tough closing stretch with all pars.

It’s been a long time since I’ve played like that.” Camilo Villegas played bogey-free for a 67, while the group at 68 featured a collection of players that included former U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy, Monday qualifier Billy Mayfair and Brad Faxon, who has made only two cuts this year while spending time working for NBC Sports.

Couple’s abortion decision is nobody’s business but theirs DEAR ABBY: My fiancee, “Cheryl,” and I are in our early 30s and recently made an extremely difficult decision. We decided to terminate her pregnancy at six weeks. Cheryl’s sister “Nicki” -- my future sister-in-law -- is opposed to abortion and now no longer wants to talk to me or have anything to do with me. I have tried reaching out to Nicki to explain the reasons for our decision, but it has fallen on deaf ears. Should I continue asking her for forgiveness, or have I done enough already? This is causing Cheryl a great deal of pain, and I don’t believe that it’s fair for Nicki to punish me for a personal family decision. Please let me know your thoughts. — CHERYL’S FIANCE IN PHOENIX

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Allowing someone to meddle in your affairs will jeopardize a partnership that means a lot to you. Use your experience, knowledge and diplomacy to get to the bottom of things and to make decisions that will allow you to advance. Your relationships with the people around you are either working or they are not. It’s in your best interest to size up your situation and act accordingly. Your numbers are 4, 9, 13, 24, 27, 36, 40 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Circumstances will be very unusual regarding a financial responsibility for someone close to you. Handle any joint ventures carefully. Criticism can lead to a blowout that will be hard to reverse. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do something nice for yourself or for someone you care for. Love and romance should be high on your list. Taking a risk will not bode well with someone who loves you. Think twice before you take action. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t harp on issues that are really not that important. You can do more damage than good if you are too vocal. Your tendency to overreact will lead others to believe that your concerns aren’t valid. Chill out. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Put all your attributes to work for you. There is something unique that you have to offer. Don’t sell yourself short. Bring your talents to the forefront and you will recognize a way to subsidize your income. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll find it difficult to keep your thoughts to yourself, especially if someone is bothering or annoying you. Speaking out will target you for recourse you didn’t expect. A little diplomacy, coupled with your Leo charm will result in your getting your way.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Travel, socializing and being with people you enjoy will stimulate you mentally, physically and emotionally. You can turn a creative idea into something that offers you great joy and a chance to work toward an important goal. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The more giving you are and the more involved you get in assisting others, the better you will feel about yourself and your future. Don’t let someone’s selfish tendency convince you that charity is a waste of time. Follow your intuition. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t waste your time arguing with someone when you know that what you are going to do isn’t going to change. Put your energy into a goal you have set or investing in a project you believe in. Follow your heart. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Before you take flight, consider the consequences of your actions. Stability will help you far more than putting yourself on the line. Take care of your chores or expect to face criticism. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): The less you hide, the better you will do. Expressing your concerns and your plans will put others at ease and may also get you the help you need. A partnership may be enticing but if you can go it alone, do so. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t expect things to get done without a little effort on your part. Hiding information or avoiding your responsibility will set you back emotionally and financially. Finish what you start and don’t lead anyone on or commit to something you aren’t going to honor. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t let a jealous colleague or friend dictate what you can and cannot do. When it comes to love, double check your motives as well as the motives of the person you are with.

DEAR FIANCE: So how did Nicki get inserted in the middle of something that was none of her business in the first place? Surely, she didn’t have a vote. Nicki is entitled to her feelings, but she has no right to punish you for a decision that was arrived at by both you and her sister. And the person to make that crystal clear to Nicki is Cheryl, not you, so stop apologizing. The decision to terminate a pregnancy is an extremely sensitive one and never one that is taken lightly. Every decision has consequences, and I am sure that you and your fiancee accepted that

would be to reach out and contact your children and grandchildren yourself. Others include getting out of your house, volunteering at a hospital (a pediatric ward, perhaps?), library, animal rescue or your political party — ANYTHING but sit around feeling angry and isolated. There is more pressure on families today than at any time I can remember. Many teens are so overscheduled and pressured to succeed they don’t get enough sleep. So please try to judge them less harshly.

when you made yours.


o DEAR ABBY: Many senior citizens, including me, never get a phone call, visit or e-mail from our children or grandchildren. They say they’re too busy with school, sports, etc. I say baloney! Is this present generation so narcissistic that all they can think of is themselves? Your answer will go to many, many seniors who would like some communication once in a while. — WAITING BY THE PHONE, FRIENDSWOOD, TEXAS DEAR WAITING: There are far more constructive and rewarding things to do with your time than wait fuming by your phone because you feel you’re not receiving enough attention.

DEAR ABBY: My husband is a computer programmer. When he calls me from work I can hear him typing on his keyboard. I find this as rude as people texting while they’re in the company of others. My husband thinks it is just fine and becomes angry if I mention it. What do you think? — ANNOYED IN IMPERIAL BEACH, CALIF. DEAR ANNOYED: I think that when your husband is working, he should devote his full attention to the job he’s being paid to do. And as accomplished as your husband may think he is at multitasking, it is unfair to his boss to chat you up on company time. He should be making his personal calls during his breaks — away from his computer.

ODDS AND ENDS Conn. prison goats nibble weeds, landscaping costs UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Two members of the work detail at a Connecticut state prison are expected to be penned there for life, working on the fence line to remove weeds and poison ivy. They seem to like the work and actually find the poison ivy delicious. Nibbles and Bits, a pair of goats, were taken to the Corrigan-Radgowski prison in a rural patch of southeastern Connecticut just over a year ago after being rescued as kids from separate area farms that didn’t want them. Joe Schoonmaker, the corrections officer who oversees landscaping at the 1,500-inmate prison, heard about the goats and asked the warden. “We threw the idea at him that we could use them to get into the hard-toget areas, like the hillside and the fence line,” he said. So when it’s impossible or impractical to get a weed trimmer or lawnmower somewhere on prison property, Schoonmaker calls in Nibbles and Bits. They eat anything, except mountain laurel. Schoonmaker and Officer Jason Ware pay the $20-per-month cost of feed - oats - from their own pockets. Everything else the animals need has been built by prisoners or donated. Their pen is a converted shed, just outside the prison fence. It has its own fence, built by inmates from trees that were taken down because they were deemed to be too close to the barbedwire. The goats also have their own small recreation yard, which includes a handmade playscape. Every morning, Nibbles


MY ANSWER gets on one side of a balance board and Bits goes to the other, Schoonmaker said. They meet in the middle and butt heads. A local vet donates his time. The wood shavings in the pen come from a saw mill. What the goats don’t require is pay, close supervision or gasoline, Warden Anthony Coletti said. They have saved the prison time, manpower and about $200 a year, mostly the cost of gas. “Every day they eat their weight in weeds,” Coletti said. Only minimum security inmates get to work with the goats. Many are nearing the end of their sentences. “It gives inmates a sense of purpose to care for farm animals,” Coletti said. “And they really learn to care for them and about them. Everyone loves the goats.”

Okla. man backs car through parking tower wall TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A 67-year-old Oklahoma man had quite a fright after backing his car at high speed through a seventh-floor exterior wall of a parking garage. Ralph Hudson says his foot got stuck between his Mercedes’ brake and gas pedal as he was backing up in a towering parking garage in downtown Tulsa on Wednesday. The car burst through the building’s exterior wall and sprayed debris on a parking lot below before stopping just in time. The car’s trunk and part of its back wheels were left hanging precariously out of the building but officials were able to safely drive it back inside. No injuries were reported. Police officer Jason Willingham says Hudson was not ticketed over the incident. See answer, page 2A

Ask God for strength in hard times Q: How do you know if something bad that happens to you is from God, or if it’s from the devil? I’ve gone through a hard time recently, and one friend tells me that God sent it to make me a better person, while another friend says the devil sent it to make me doubt God. How do I know who’s right? — Mrs. D.B.S. A: To be honest, we don’t always know where some of the hard times come from that invade our lives. I doubt if Job realized in the midst of his suffering that God and Satan were engaged in a massive spiritual battle for his soul (see Job 1:6-12). Sometimes it’s clear, however; in my own ministry, for example, I’ve sometimes faced difficulties that could only have come from Satan, because they were clearly intended to stop the preaching of the Gospel. I’ve faced other situations, however, that were clearly from God, because they led us into new and unexpected paths for the preaching of the Gospel. Sometimes, however, the origin of a particular problem was unclear. The real issue is this, however: When hard times come into our lives, how should we react? Should we panic, or get depressed, or spend time blaming ourselves or others? No. Instead, we should respond in faith, praying for God’s will to be done, and for Him to help us overcome all evil for Christ’s glory. Every difficulty is an opportunity for God to demonstrate His love and power. But hard times also can strengthen us as we rely on God, no matter where they came from. Ask God to make this true in your life.

There are few locations today where an outhouse serves a real purpose; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been replaced by modern conveniences.

One of these is prayerâ&#x20AC;Śas necessary in our lives today as it was a thousand years ago. When we go to God in prayer, we take time from our hurried modern lives to listen for His ever-present guidance. Our Heavenly Father can never be replaced by modern conveniences!

Church recruits young priests via Facebook By KATIE KING Associated Press Writer

PARIS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As he sat in Church last Sunday afternoon, Guillaume Humblot found himself troubled by the declining number of Catholic priests in France, and asked himself if he was ready to join the cloth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are almost none left,â&#x20AC;? the 31-yearold Humblot said. On Facebook, Humblot discovered a forum dedicated to people who, like him, are considering the priesthood. The page was part of a campaign, launched by the Catholic Church this month, to attract young people to the priesthood following decades of dwindling ordainments â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and amid waves of sexual abuse allegations that have darkened the reputation of the Catholic priest. There are around 24,000 priests in France today, down from 42,000 in 1975. The number of Catholics entering the diocese has declined as well, from 116 ordainments in 1999 to 89 in 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a crisis in vocation,â&#x20AC;? said French priest and family therapist Stephane Joulain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have sufficient numbers to renew the number of priests available for ministry today.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pourquoi Pas Moi?â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why Not Me?â&#x20AC;? is the slogan for the recruit-

Guillaume Humblot poses by a church Thursday in Paris. As he sat in church one Sunday afternoon, Humblot found himself troubled by the declining number of Catholic priests in France, and is now considering joining the cloth. Via Facebook, he discovered a new campaign sponsored by the French church aimed at attracting young people to the priesthood, after decades of dwindling ordainments, and amid a wave of sexual abuse allegations that have sullied the reputation of priests around Europe. ment campaign â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which today may prove a tough question for the Church to answer. The 250,000 campaign was launched nationwide on April 20 and will last through May 5. Seventy-thousand postcards depicting a Catholic priestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outfit with a button reading â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jesus is my Boss,â&#x20AC;? pinned to the lapel and the slogan â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why not?â&#x20AC;? written underneath will be distributed to 600 points throughout France, including restaurants, bars and movie theaters. A Facebook page created April 21 garnered over 1,200 fans

within one week. From Germany to the United States to Brazil, hundreds of victims have come forward in recent months to say they were abused by Catholic priests, plunging the church into a worldwide crisis that has reached Pope Benedict XVI. Many churchgoers say Vatican leadership has not reacted strongly enough. French priests have not escaped the sexual abuse allegations, although complaints in France are less numerous than in countries such as Ireland, the United States and Germany. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We must avoid stigmatizing priests,â&#x20AC;? said

Eric Poinsot, one of the priests coordinating the campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All priests are not pedophiles and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be identified that way. We would rather work to present the priest as ... someone who believes in happiness, who searches to communicate.â&#x20AC;? While 64 percent of the French population, or 41.6 million of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 65 million inhabitants, identifies itself as Catholic, only a little more than 2 million attend church each week, said Jacques Carton, a representative from the Bishops Conference in France. The current advertising campaign hopes to revitalize the Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image in French society â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but its main goal is to encourage young men to consider the priesthood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The priest is a disappearing presence in French society today,â&#x20AC;? said Frederic Fonfroide de Lafon, director of the communications company Bayard Service, which the Church hired to run its campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Often people think of him as a man a bit apart. I wanted to show that he is a man that is a part of society.â&#x20AC;? But young people like Humblot are still torn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m asking myself the question,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a calling that interests me, but today I am unable to tell you if I am ready to go down that path.â&#x20AC;?
