LEE COUNTY BUDGET

Low voter turnout expected today

No new taxes, no cuts

School board vote highlights primary ballot in Lee County

County Manager’s proposal, if approved, would actually add a position By BILLY BALL bball@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — There’s good news in the Lee County budget. A recommended spending plan put forth by County Manager John Crumpton Monday will maintain the

current 75 cents per $100 valuation property tax rate and not come with any more cut positions. In fact, the county would net another job in the 345person roster if all goes according to plan. That’s a major plus one

year after the recession-stung county slashed 26 positions as expenses mounted and revenues dried up. County commissioners have said they want a budget that avoids layoffs and retains

SANFORD — Time to cast your ballots. Primary voting is today and a number of national and local seats are up in the air. Lee County’s 10 polling places opened today at 6:30 a.m. and will close at 7:30 p.m. Up for grabs are a seat in the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, the District Attorney position, the Lee County Board of Commissioners and three spots on the Lee County Board of Education. School board seats, which are nonpartisan, will be decided in today’s vote, along with the race for who will be the Republican challenger in the Lee County Board of Commissioners District 4 race in November. Lee County Elections Director Nancy Kimble is predicting light turnout in an area known for paltry voting numbers on non-

SANFORD — In these troubled economic times, there was a lot at stake at this year’s Sanford Pottery Festival, and a lot of stress for Founder Don Hudson and his dedicated group of volunteers to make it a success. But a day removed from the last sale at the weekend event, Hudson said Monday the ninth annual event surpassed all expectations on attendance and sales. Though he said he did not

have concrete numbers, he estimated that the show’s attendance was up “at least 20 percent,” this year, leading to the increase in sales potters and vendors were needing to stay afloat this year. “This was one of our best years ever,” Hudson said. “It was nice not to have a drop of rain both days.” The weekend’s success came as a relief to Hudson, who said some vendors expressed to him prior to the opening that they were counting on the Sanford show to make their year.

“It puts a lot of pressure on a show promoter to hear more than one person say they would need a big show in Sanford or they would have to sell their home,” he said. “Potters are counting on the show now to be a sure thing.” Especially popular at this year’s event, Hudson said, was the wine tent, which featured an average of 12 vineyards a day pouring samples and selling bottles. Hudson said the tent sold at least 2,200 glasses for attend-

OAK ISLAND — A local boy suffered serious injuries when he fell down an elevator shaft Sunday afternoon in the beach community of Oak Island, authorities say. The child, 5-year-old Fisher Hamilton of Sanford, somehow fell after opening a residential elevator door at a beach cottage, said Oak Island Fire Chief John House. Emergency responders received conflicting reports, but the boy was apparently looking underneath the elevator when he fell through an 8-inch gap between the chamber and the door and into a concrete pit. The child’s parents are Sanford residents Sam and Alicia Hamilton, who were staying at a beach home south of Wilmington on Oak Island’s Kings Lynn Drive. Emergency responders received the call for help at 1:11 p.m. Sunday.

Second ‘Dancing With the Stars’ event announced

— from staff reports

SANFORD — Organizers have picked Aug. 13 for the second annual Dancing with the Lee County Stars event, held by Communities in Schools of Lee County. This event, sponsored by Pfizer, will take place at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center. Like the ABC hit show, couples in this event are comprised of one local “star� and one professional dancer to perform a choreographed routine. The audience and judges will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite. Names of dancers are not available at this time, as some are still waiting final scheduling. Last year’s event was oversold weeks prior to the show date, and the proceeds of $50,000 helped to save the small nonprofit from nearly having to shut its doors. CIS Lee has used the past few months to reorganize and reinvigorate their programs, according to Resource Committe Chairman Holly Riley, to make an “even larger and more beneficial impact on the Lee County School System.� The funds generated by this year’s Dancing with the Lee County Stars, Riley said, will support local elementary school children by sustaining an Adopt-ASchool effort to bring two community partners into each and every elementary school in Lee County for the 2010-2011 year. These partnerships will bring volunteers, mentors and other resources into the classrooms from local business and communities of faith sources, she said. Other current programs include BackPack Pals, Book Buddies, e-mentoring, Teacher Resource Room and more. For more information

It is not known how far Fisher Hamilton fell, but he suffered a collapse lung, broken bones on his spine, skull fractures and an orbital eye fracture, House said. Family postings on the Internet social networking site Facebook indicated that doctors have not found any bleeding in the brain since the accident, and that the boy was taken off a ventilator tube Monday afternoon. The family also posted that Fisher Hamilton was responding by squeezing his mother’s hand. The brunt of the injuries were sustained on the left side of his body where he fell, the postings read. The boy was taken to a hospital in New Hanover County and then to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill,

Bartholomew new principal at Pollard Middle School PITTSBORO — During the afternoon Board of Education meeting on Monday, Justin Bartholomew was named the principal of the district newest school, Margaret B. Pollard Middle School. Bartholomew is currently the principal of Moncure School where Bartholomew he has served for the past two years. Prior to that, he was the assistant principal at Horton Middle School. He will transition from Moncure to Pollard in July. “This position will be a tremendous professional learning and growth opportunity,� he said. “As a resident with children in that district, I am happy to be able to give back to the community in which I live. I also know with absolute certainty that many years from now when I reflect on my life, Moncure School and the Moncure community will continue to be a shining time where everything was possible and the people phenomenal.� Pollard is under construction and is slated to open in the 2010-2011 school year with its students coming from North Chatham School and Perry Harrison School. North Chatham and Harrison currently serve students in kindergarten through eighth grade. They will become traditional elementary schools, serving kindergarten through fifth grade, next school year. — from staff reports

where he is being held in intensive care. House said the elevator came down on top of Hamilton after he fell, but the boy fit into a small space in the elevator pit without being crushed. “That’s probably what saved his life,� House said. House said the first 72 hours after an individual sustains a head injury are the most critical because doctors must monitor for swelling or bleeding in the brain. He said the boy had a baseball-sized welt on the back of his head when medics arrived on the scene Sunday. House said medical personnel often note that younger children are known to weather such accidents better than most. “Five-year-olds are pretty resilient,� he said. “They can take a blow like that a lot better than somebody my age.�

Hall-of-Famer Richard Petty and country music icon Charlie Daniels — both native to North Carolina — over the past two years. Williams, who says his biggest thrill has been receiving the state of South Carolina’s highest honor for residents a few years back, said he was “amazed, floored and blessed� when he heard Sanford wanted to honor him this year. After hearing who the two previous winners were, Williams said he was humbled. “The first thing I said was, ‘Wow, that’s great company,’� Williams said over the phone from his Charlotte home last week.

AN EARLY START Williams was born in Lancaster, S.C., in 1940, and learned at an early age he had a good ear for music. He learned the piano from his older sister before he turned 10, according to one published bio, he was hosting jam sessions for friends before becoming a teenager. The church allowed Williams to fine tune his abilities, but instead of going the gospel path — as his sister did — he chose rock ‘n roll. “I think rock is similar to gospel,� Williams said. “Rock, rhythm and blues ... I was raised on the big bands and Johnny Mathis growing up. (Rock music) was just natural for me. Writing songs came easily to me.� As a teenager, he and some friends formed a group, The Royal Charms, which made a name for itself playing school events and winning local talent shows. In that first year, Williams wrote two songs

The Small Business Banquet, held each year at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center, honors and celebrates Lee County’s vital small business community. Tickets for May 6 event are $25. Reserve seats by contacting the Small Business Center at (919)774-6442.

Mr. Maurice Williams’ of the Zodiacs favorite charity is Boys and Girls Home of North Carolina Inc. of Lake Waccamaw. The Chamber of Commerce and CCCC-Small Business Center will attempt to donate a goal of $1000 in honor of Maurice Williams. Those who would like to contribute can send checks or other donations in the name of the Boys & Girls Home of NC, “Honoring Maurice Williams� in the memo line, to: CCCC/SBC, c/o Jim Felton, 1801 Nash St. Sanford, N.C. 27330.

that would end up defining his musical career. “Stay� and “Little Darling.� “Stay� would be released by Williams and another group, The Zodiacs, in 1960 and would reach No. 1 on the charts, becoming the shortest No. 1 hit in American rock music history (a record it holds to this day with a 1 minute, 53-second run time). “Little Darling,� released a few years earlier with The Gladiolas (The Royal Charms but with a different name because Nashville producers thought the first name was too common) would go on to become a hit for another 60s doo-wop group, The Diamonds, and would later be covered by legends like Elvis Presley, The Monkees and Frankie Valli. “I wrote ‘Stay’ in like four or five minutes,� Williams recalled, “and then threw it in the trash can. I went ahead and put it on tape, and one day I was playing songs for the little sister of my girlfriend, and she didn’t like much of it except ‘Stay.’ She said she liked the song with the high part in it.� That “song with the high part� included the falsetto line, “Ohhhh won’t you stayyy ... just a little bit longer.� The song “stayed� atop the charts an entire summer and made Williams and The Zodiacs stars — putting them in front of national TV audiences. “To this day,� Williams told another publication recently, “When I hear Henry Gaston wait the high part, I still get chills.�

WE BUY GOLD TOP DOLLAR PAID ON THE SPOT!

“Stay� was about a girlfriend who had a curfew, and Williams urged her to break curfew so they could continue doing the things innocent teens in love do. “Little Darling� was about the same girl ... and another ... and Williams’ inner-battle as he longed for both of them. “I was wrong-a, to love two .. a-ooh, a-ooh, a-ooh, a-hoo,� he sings ... and he laughs today when recalling those stories. “When I write songs, it’s like giving birth,� Williams said. “And todya, my babies are still going. And it’s still wonderful.�

CAREER REBORN When “Dirty Dancing� became a mega-hit in 1987, the movie’s soundtrack — which contained several love songs from Williams’ era — became a mega-hit, too. The soundtrack spent 18 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts and went multi-platinum, selling 42 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time. It even re-entered the charts in Ireland in 2007. “It brought us a young audience we didn’t have,� Williams said. “I’ll never forget performing it around that time, and a little girl — about 15 — said, ‘Mr. Williams, can I give you a hug ... I want to hug the man who shook hands with Patrick Swayze.’ “I had to tell her, ‘Well, I never actually met Patrick Swayze,’ but she didn’t care,� he said. “That

album brought back a lot of oldies and made them popular again.� Williams’ career hasn’t slowed since, as he can regularly be found performing at beach shows and other oldies-themed concerts. And while he’s not expected to perform Thursday night during the banquet, Williams said if he’s asked, he’d love to sing a hit or two. He said he still listens to new music these days, but mostly country ... though he did say the most recent rap artist he liked was M.C. Hammer, more than 20 years ago. “I was raised on Hank Williams,� he said. “I’ll always love country.� He’ll be releasing a new album with new songs and refurbished versions of his hits in the near future as well. As for being considered a Carolina legend, Williams said he’s had the opportunity to live anywhere in the world, but he never considered leaving his home. “I’m not too far from my family, and the Zodiacs were from Charlotte ... the Gladiolas from Lancaster,� he said. “There’s really no place like home.�

4A / Tuesday, May 4, 2010 / The Sanford Herald

Editorial Board: Bill Horner III, Publisher • Billy Liggett, Editor • R.V. Hight, Special Projects Editor

Your vote is just as important today as any

I

n the past, this newspaper has been steadfast in its opinion that the opportunity to vote is one of the greatest freedoms we have as an American. We have the opportunity to have a say in who represents in on the federal, state and local levels. It’s a privilege we should be grateful and appreciative for, as there have been many brave men and women over the years who have fought for this precious right. And we continue to espouse the importance of an individual vote, how in a close race that one vote can make a tremendous difference. We realize, however, that

some people do not vote. Perhaps they don’t care. Or they figure there’s no use. Or they don’t want to have to go to the trouble. Low voter turnout is expected today, and that’s understandable. There’s no president up for election ... the state and national races (on the primary side) are considered slam dunks in most areas (save for the GOP candidates looking to challenge Bob Etheridge and the Democratic candidates going for Richard Burr’s Senate seat) and there’s only one contested primary race for Lee County Board of Commissioners.

But we believe it’s an important race nonetheless. We have seven quality candidates for Lee County Board of Education, and they’re fighting for the three open seats on the board (there is no primary for the school board ... the choices you pick Tuesday will take office this year). They’ll be joining a district trying to manage Lee County’s growth, trying to determine if more schools are needed for the district’s future well-being and trying to do all of this on a skin-tight budget. Education drives this county, and the board members set the policies our students and

teachers end up following. This year’s candidates, in alphabetic order, are Mark Akinosho, Dana W. Atkins, John Bonardi, Shannon Gurwitch, Kim Lilley, Ellen Mangum and Linda Smith. The other notable local race is the District 4 Board of Commissioners Republican Primary between Tamara Brogan and Jim Womack. The winner will face Kenny Cole (a Democrat) in November. They have been profiled in the newspaper. They’ve participated in candidate forums. They’ve campaigned. Now, the choice is in your hands.

To all who have stepped forward to run for political office in this election and primary, thanks for your willingness to serve. The decisions can be difficult, but your desire to serve in this often thankless position is much appreciated. To those who will vote, thank you for taking time out to help select our leaders. Your vote is important. To those who will not vote, you will have had the opportunity. To everyone, let’s remember that we must work together, despite our differences, if we want our community to become the best that it can be.

Guest Column Continual campaigning is bad for America

A loud deafness

I

t was a strange juxtaposition. The U.S. Senate had begun squabbling about reform intended to rein in Wall Street abuses; North Carolina legislators picked at each other over a proposal to allow $20 late fees on small consumer finance loans. Meanwhile, the state treasurer was defending a decade-long increase in the fees paid to that Wall Street crowd to manage the state’s $67 billion pension fund. Her defense came as she was heading out to southern California to speak at a conference organized by the man who became the face of Wall Street recklessness and avarice in the 1980s. ... Back in North Carolina, the plan to impose the late fees on consumer loans got a rough ride. A legislative committee studying the idea dropped it after advocacy groups for low-income borrowers and the AARP raised a stink. Walking into the Legislative Building prior to the meeting, I overheard a comment coming from a gaggle of loan industry officials. “In this atmosphere,” the fellow began. Indeed. In this atmosphere, you thought putting a new fee on the backs of consumers had a chance? Afterward, a lobbyist complained to me, “They wouldn’t even negotiate.” The “they” were the consumer advocacy groups. “They didn’t have to,” I responded. As that meeting was going on, State Treasurer Janet Cowell was three time zones away, talking about business opportunities in China at a conference being hosted by convicted felon Michael Milken. The old junk bond king and his Milken Institute have been doing this kind of thing for a while. And he has all kinds of defenders these days, particularly among those who tapped his easy credit to build modern-day business empires that gobbled up competitors by the score in the go-go ’80s and ’90s. Cowell had some interesting company: three other state treasurers, the head of the California pension fund, Arnold and Maria, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor. ... A New York Times editor moderated some panels. Just before leaving Raleigh, Cowell had been explaining to TV station WRAL why annual fees paid to the investment bankers, venture capitalists and hedge fund managers who put slices of the state pension fund into various investments had risen from $40.8 million to $266 million over the last decade. Cowell wasn’t treasurer for most of that decade. But she is an advocate of the diversification that has led to the higher management fees. With the 2008 market collapse, there’s not a whole of return to show for the fees. Cowell told the TV station that comparisons aren’t fair because of the 2008 losses. She added that outside expert investors are needed because investing is more sophisticated than ever. It is. Just go ask the naked shorters or the credit default swappers. Or, ask Michael Milken.

Strikingly unpresidential

P

resident Barack Obama doesn’t deserve the reputation he’s had for his style and temperament and for being gracious, civil, bipartisan and post-racial. He is often ungracious, uncivil, hyper-partisan, race-oriented and vindictive. He mocks and ridicules almost for sport. More than any president in my memory, he often does not comport himself presidentially. Why does this matter? Well — if I even have to answer that — he is the face of America. The left constantly talked about George W. Bush’s swagger and his cowboy diplomacy and how that damaged our “image” in the world and our relations with other nations. But George W. Bush was nothing if not circumspect, discreet and respectful in his dealings with foreign leaders and his dealings with his political opponents. He was exceedingly presidential, demonstrating an extremely high respect for the office he held and what it represented. How the president presents himself does matter for all the obvious reasons, but I believe Obama’s behavior and the public’s perception of it are relevant for other equally important reasons. He came into office with a reputation for being sophisticated, gentlemanly, above the political fray and openminded. But it was a facade, facilitated by good looks, a seemingly pleasant demeanor and an extraordinarily fawning — and forgiving — media. He has been getting a pass on his unseemly conduct for way too long, which partially explains the disconnect between his personal likability and the unpopularity of his socialist agenda. I believe that if the public were fully attuned to how unpresidentially he has consistently behaved, it wouldn’t be as approving of him personally, and in turn, politicians wouldn’t be so afraid to call him out on his Machiavellian and brutish behavior, the exposure of which would have an electoral impact. If more people understood what I believe to be this man’s actual character, they wouldn’t — in the face of his consistently highhanded tactics in pushing each and every one of his destructive agenda items — reflexively assume he’s such a nice guy who means well. Then, they might be more vigilant, and heaven knows we need megadoses of vigilance these days. I have theories about why Obama is consistently getting a pass, beyond the media’s corrupt liberalism and the allies he’s created through his racial and class warfare, but that’s another column. The point for now is that he is getting a pass, and his behavior is increasingly indefensible. We talk about Obama as a graduate of Saul Alinsky’s school of thuggish street agitation, but it is more than just a casual charge. He is Alinsky personified with a disarming smile. It’s not just a matter of his having embraced a political strategy that involves hitting below the belt and abusing power to help his friends and hurt his enemies. His behavior is not just a tactic; it’s part of who he is. It is apparent that

David Limbaugh Syndicated Columnist David Limbaugh can be reached by e-mail at david@davidlimbaugh.com

he has been coddled so long that he simply has zero tolerance for any opposition. Indeed, he is exactly the opposite of who he billed himself to be: “I will bring a new type of politics to Washington.” As a committed liberal ideologue, he is neither a uniter nor one willing to consider both sides of an issue. But it’s not just his extremist views that are divisive. He is also often personally divisive, petty and mean-spirited. From the time he cavalierly dismissed Hillary Clinton during a presidential debate with “You’re likable enough, Hillary,” I knew some cold blood ran through his veins. As president, he has been gratuitously nasty with people who have dared oppose him, and he has affirmatively targeted and demonized entire industries to advance his agenda. Consider: his command that “the folks who created the mess” not “do a lot of talking”; his endless scapegoating of George Bush; his rude treatment of foreign leaders, from Britain’s Gordon Brown to France’s Nicolas Sarkozy; his abominable treatment of Israel and its leader, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; his character assassination of inspector general Gerald Walpin for blowing the whistle on his friends; his demonization of surgeons and primary care physicians as dishonest mercenaries, Republicans as “liars,” secured creditors as “speculators,” tea partiers as “domestic terrorists,” Arizonans as “irresponsible,” rural Americans as bitter clingers and America itself as being “dismissive,” “arrogant” and “derisive” and as having “a responsibility to act” because it is the only nation to have ever “used a nuclear weapon”; his vilification of Wall Street “fat cat” bankers, big pharma, big oil, insurance companies, big corporations, corporate executives, Cambridge policemen, conservative talk show hosts and Fox News; his snubbing even of the liberal press pool; his egomaniacal behavior at the health care summit; and his administration’s flirtation with criminalizing Bush-era officials for their legal opinions.

Today’s Prayer I declare to you the gospel. (I Corinthians 15:1) PRAYER: Father, help us to be a good witness for You, so we may bring others to You. Amen.

Continual campaigning is part of modern politics. In the past, a president was elected, and then lawmakers settled down and governed. Today, we are overwhelmed with highly charged political rhetoric that is aimed at scoring points for future elections. And there are many factors contributing to the occurrences. Extreme partisanship is partially to blame. More than ever, we have chosen sides. We are a divided nation. We are Republican or Democrat. Far from being cordial, we snarl at each other. It seems we just can’t come together and work on the issues of the day. We can’t let down our guard or the other guy might take advantage. So government comes to a standstill. It stops, and the citizens are the losers. Continual campaigning happens because politics has become a form of entertainment. Nightly news shows broadcast celebrity pundits for celebrity politicians. Sarah Palin comes on the scene; she complains about the president in well-crafted speeches. She is only a half-term Alaska governor, but she has the zest and sex appeal for real stardom. Glenn Beck stands up and rants about the words “social justice” in churches. The man is sure that certain religious organizations have a socialist agenda. He encourages people to run from them. Continual campaigning results from denying the legitimacy of the president. “Birthers” say Obama was not born in the United States and so cannot be president. They deny his victory and thus his right to govern; the presidential election was a sham and somebody else should be in his place. The campaign goes on and again, nobody can do the nation’s business. Sadly, continual campaigning is not good for America. We need bipartisanship, to work where we can find common ground. The GOP’s party of “no” often serves to obstruct beneficial legislation. The filibuster was not meant to bring government to a halt. Let’s meet in the middle and compromise to the best of our ability for the sake of the country. Let’s make our politics about issues rather than celebrities. Even good legislation should be dull. Let’s truly bore ourselves with a bill’s content instead of often looking for hype. Let’s accept big pundits as paid showmen. Let’s acknowledge that Barack Obama is the legitimate leader of our great country, elected fairly and squarely. Let us love capitalism but occasionally strive to work for community. Strength also comes from shared ideals. We will become a stronger nation when continual campaigning subsides. We will be able to govern. o Kristine Kaiser lives in Kernersville.

presidential election years. “There’s not an awful lot on the ballot when it comes to the general election,� Kimble said, adding she expects numbers will be higher in November. Kimble said turnout should be at least 20 to 25 percent today, following a sluggish early voting period. All told, 1,428 locals, almost 4.5 percent of registered voters, cast ballots in the one-stop voting period from April 15 to Saturday. That’s much less than the 15,000 who turned out early in 2008 during a firebrand presidential election, Kimble said. Of the local races, Republicans Tamara Brogan and Jim Womack are jousting to become the Republican candidate in November for the fourth district seat on the Board of Commissioners. Meanwhile, seven candidates are battling for three open seats on the Board of Education. Those candidates include: John Bonardi Jr., Linda Smith, Ellen Mangum, Kimberly Lilley, Mark Akinosho, Dana

Atkins and Shannon Gurwitch. Local District Attorney Susan Doyle is pitted against another Republican, Joy Jones, to retain her position for four more years. In the U.S. House race, Republicans Frank Deatrich, Todd Gailas and Renee Ellmers are fighting to challenge Democratic incumbent Bob Etheridge in November. In the U.S. Senate, Republican incumbent Richard Burr’s seat is up for grabs. Burr will spar with Eddie Burks, Brad Jones and Larry Linney in the GOP primary, while Democrats Marcus Williams, Ken Lewis, Cal Cunningham, Elaine Marshall, Ann Worthy and Susan Harris compete to run against the winner in November. Registered voters will need an acceptable form of identification to cast a ballot today. Acceptable identification includes a driver’s license, a bank statement, a utility bill with your name and current address, government IDs like a U.S. passport, a paycheck stub, a student photo ID or a W-2 statement.

Primary drawing few ballots despite voter anger

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; North Carolina voters angry with Congress have only been trickling to the polls for Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary that could alter the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership on Capitol Hill. Some 170,000 people cast ballots in early voting, roughly one-third the number that appeared during the one-stop period for the presidential primary two years ago. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been no sign of a tea party surge, as Republicans have comprised just 33 percent of voters so far â&#x20AC;&#x201D; similar to last election and to the statewide breakdown of party registration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappointing that more people are not tuning into the importance of the primary election,â&#x20AC;? said Bob Hall, executive director of elections watchdog Democracy North Carolina. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the place where candidates are filtered out. The vote actually has tremendous weight.â&#x20AC;? At the top of the ballot, the election will weed out a large group of Democrats seeking to

challenge Republican Sen. Richard Burr, whose approval numbers have sagged along with the rest of Congress. Burr himself faces GOP challengers who question whether he can get re-elected, though the incumbent is widely seen as a favorite and plans to spend Election Day in Washington.. There are also several key House primaries: Republican Rep. Howard Coble, who hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen a primary challenger in a quarter century, faces several looking to represent his district in central North Carolina. Democratic Rep. Larry Kissell, who won a seat just two years ago to represent southern North Carolina, faces a challenge from one of his former campaign volunteers. Meanwhile, several Republicans have been competing in a costly race to challenge Kissell in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most competitive district. Scores of other primaries across North Carolina ballots will help select state lawmakers, judges and prosecutors.

the tax rate. County Manager John Crumptonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal is for $60.6 million in spending in the 2010-2011 fiscal year, up nearly 1.3 percent from a $59.9 million budget in the current year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was a very realistic piece of work,â&#x20AC;? Board of Commissioners Chairman Richard Hayes said of Crumptonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget, calling it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very frugal, very conservativeâ&#x20AC;? assessment of Lee Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impending obligations and challenges. Revenues are up slightly from last year, thanks to an increase in locals paying their taxes and paying them on time, a pleasant surprise for cash-starved county leaders who expected the opposite to happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re actually kind of surprised by that,â&#x20AC;? Crumpton said. An additional bonus is an $800,000 increase in revenues from the local option sales tax, indicating that the economic recovery is, at least in some part, moving. Crumpton said the 20102011 proposed plan represents something of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;neutralâ&#x20AC;? budget as finance heads struggled to maintain services in the face of low revenues. The biggest hit in funding comes in the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution to spending reserves, down more than 23 percent from $766,000 this year to more than $589,000 in 2010-2011. Lee County Schools is also seeing something of a cut, losing $130,000 in funding, primarily at

sion in the future spinning off the wineries into their own festival on the same weekend as the pottery festival, and even adding others to â&#x20AC;&#x153;create a series of related shows that could bring 50,000-100,000 people to Sanford.â&#x20AC;? Those plans may be in the distance, but he said he did know for sure that the wine area would

increase dramatically in size at next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show. Next year will be the 10th anniversary of the festival, a milestone Hudson said would be celebrated with a larger event throughout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re well poised to make our 10th event an special one next year in Sanford,â&#x20AC;? he said.

the capital and infrastructure level, to its appropriation. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public safety expenditures, which includes the Lee County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, is due for the biggest increase in spending, up 7 percent from $7.3 million this year to $7.8 million next year. The bulk of that extra spending comes in the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, which is in need of vehicle maintenance and county funding for its drug agent and gang task force officer positions. Meanwhile, public health spending would come with nearly a $57,000 cut to the $2.9 million budgeted in the current year. County commissioners have set a May 17 public hearing to consider the budget, and Crumpton hopes to have a spending plan in place by early June. State statutes require that the county pass a budget before the July 1 start of the 2010-2011 fiscal year. Crumpton said much of the strain placed on the county budget comes as financially-beleaguered state leaders look to cut spending and pass funding responsibilities along to local government agencies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot continue to absorb these actions and maintain our service levels,â&#x20AC;? Crumpton wrote in a letter to commissioners Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Either services and/or departments will need to be cut or the property tax rate will to go up.â&#x20AC;? Hayes lauded the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial planning as â&#x20AC;&#x153;wellformedâ&#x20AC;? in these troubled economic times, but suggested some changes could be made to assist struggling local nonprofits.

Hayes pointed specifically to the labors of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Sanford/Lee County and Lee County Industries Inc., a nonprofit that provides employment training and rehabilitational assistance for adults with disabilities. Both agencies were hit hard by revenue and grant shortfalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There seems to be the spirit to be helpful without establishing a long, ongoing precedent with some of the entities that we realize are very much a part of our social obligation and our social network,â&#x20AC;? Hayes said. Hayes also applauded county employees for bearing the strain of reduced positions and deferrals on cost-of-living salary increases. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have just tightened their belts and lived through this with everybody else,â&#x20AC;? he said. Hayes added that the county workforce is down to its â&#x20AC;&#x153;bare bonesâ&#x20AC;? right now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really have any other people that we can let go and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just hoping that this budget is realistic enough that if any changes are made, it would be a change for the good and not for the worse, and ideally we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be losing any more people.â&#x20AC;? Despite Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal, Crumpton said Lee Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s darkest financial days might still be ahead, pointing to looming budget gaps at the state level that could make impending budgets something of a nightmare. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll survive until next year, but it will be a very trying year unless the economy improves,â&#x20AC;? Crumpton said.

STATE BRIEFS

Bar disciplines Mackey on law license By GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — State Rep. Nick Mackey will lose his law license for up to three years after a North Carolina State Bar panel determined he committed misconduct by failing to disclose late tax filings and troubles while a police officer on his Bar exam application, according to an order filed Monday. Mackey, a first-term House member, signed the order dated Friday agreeing he “engaged in dishonest conduct” by failing to file timely tax returns from 2003 to 2006 and failing to act quickly enough to help a client who wanted to adopt his stepdaughter before she became an adult. The order, also signed by the chairman of a Bar disciplinary panel, found that simply warning Mackey in writing or formally censuring him “would fail to acknowledge the seriousness of the misconduct” to other

attorneys, Bar exam applicants and the public. The filing came three days before the disciplinary commission had been scheduled to hear the case in public. Mackey also is running in the Democratic primary Tuesday against Rodney Moore for his 99th House District seat. Mackey’s “conduct reflects adversely on his trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer,” the order signed by panel Chairman Tommy Jarrett said. Mackey also has received two other public reprimands since November 2008, according to records posted on the Bar’s website. Mackey must give up his law license within 30 days of receiving Monday order and be prepared to return records and files to clients. But he can apply to get the suspension stayed after one year and return to practice if he stays out of additional trouble with the Bar and files his tax returns on time.

Mackey’s lawyer had argued last September the Bar should dismiss its complaint against Mackey, in part because Mackey said he relied on and followed the advice of his tax preparer. The order raises the possibility that the House, through its ethics committee, could investigate his conduct as well. Through a spokesman, House Speaker Joe Hackney, D-Orange, declined to comment Monday on Mackey’s case. Mackey declined Monday in a phone interview to respond to specific questions about potential problems in the chamber and how he intends to make a living without practicing law. He said he was looking for the opportunity to put mistakes behind him. “I’m just happy that this matter has been resolved,” Mackey said. “I’m disappointed in the outcome but I accept the outcome and I look forward to serving the people of North Carolina.” The consent order found Mackey failed to disclose on his 2002 exam application or provide a supplement

showing he had failed to pay his federal income taxes on time for 1997, 1999 and 2002, as well as state income tax in two of those years and that he owed past due taxes. Mackey also failed to tell the Bar he had been suspended without pay in 1991 as a CharlotteMecklenburg police officer when a review board had determined he had made an untruthful statement, the order said. He also didn’t tell the Bar he was being investigated by police at the time of his application. He resigned from the police department in June 2003, a few months after he was recommended for dismissal. Mackey was admitted to the Bar in August 2003. Mackey’s conduct “caused significant harm to the legal profession in that his acts bring the legal profession into disrepute,” the order reads. In 2008, the House expelled Rep. Thomas Wright, D-New Hanover, after finding the eight-term legislator mishandled or hid about $340,000 in loans and campaign and charitable contributions. A jury late found Wright guilty of fraud and a judge sentenced him to prison.

Ex-sheriff pleads guilty in drug funds case

Senate Democratic hopefuls work on primary eve

RALEIGH (AP) — A North Carolina sheriff who spent two decades as the top law enforcement officer in a coastal county has pleaded guilty to charges related to the misuse of funds. Former Carteret County Sheriff Ralph Thomas pleaded guilty on Monday to conspiring to commit an offense against the United States. Prosecutors said Thomas stole funds designated for the use of covert drug investigations. Thomas was elected in 1986 and served for 20 years. Also, former deputy Christopher Cozart pleaded guilty to misprision of a felony for his role in the case. Cozart was a deputy sheriff from 2002 to 2007. Attorneys for the men did not immediately return a call seeking comment. Both men face prison sentences, fines of $250,000 and one year of supervised release. No sentencing date has been set.

RALEIGH (AP) — The three leading candidates for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in North Carolina are keeping to low-key campaigning on the eve of Tuesday’s primary. Former state Sen. Cal Cunningham planned to visit a phone bank Monday for his campaign in his hometown of Lexington and thank volunteers. Chapel Hill attorney Ken Lewis was expected to call supporters and visit some Durham restaurants and his campaign headquarters. Secretary of State Elaine Marshall scheduled a visit to the Wake County courthouse and a ribbon-cutting in Fayetteville. Susan Harris, Marcus Williams and Ann Worthy also are on the Democratic ballot. The six are seeking to replace Republican incumbent Richard Burr in November. Burr is the heavy favorite to win his primary.

Chief medical examiner to retire July 1 CHAPEL HILL (AP) — North Carolina’s chief medical examiner is leaving his post later this summer after more than two decades in office. State health officials said Monday Dr. John Butts would retire from office July 1. He has been North Carolina’s chief medical examiner since 1987. Butts oversees more than 600 doctors who investigate deaths throughout the state. He joined the chief medical examiner’s office in 1975 and teaches at the schools of medicine for the University of North Carolina and Duke University.

‘Lost Colony’ executive director to resign MANTEO (AP) — The executive director and producer of the North Carolina outdoor drama “The Lost Colony” is stepping down in October. The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Va., reported that Carl Curnutte has said the 73rd season will be his final season with the show, which opens May 28. The drama tells the story of the disastrous first attempt at a permanent English settlement on Roanoke Island in the New World in 1587. Curnutte confirmed his resignation last week but would not talk about it. The chairman of the Roanoke Island Historical Association says the resignation is effective Oct. 20, two months after the season ends.

LOUISIANA OIL RIG DISASTER

WASHINGTON RESPONSE

Gulf spill could affect consumers Obama heads to

NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The calamitous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just a mess for the people who live or work on the coast. If you drink coffee, eat shrimp, like bananas or plan to buy a new set of tires, you could end up paying more because of the disaster. The slick has forced the shutdown of the gulfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rich fishing grounds and could also spread to the busy shipping lanes at the mouth of the Mississippi River, tying up the cargo vessels that move millions of tons of fruit, rubber, grain, steel and other commodities and raw materials in and out of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interior. Though a total shutdown of the shipping lanes is unlikely, there could be long delays if vessels are forced to wait to have their oil-coated hulls power-washed to avoid contaminating the Mississippi. Some cargo ships might choose to unload somewhere else in the U.S. That could drive up costs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say it gets real bad. It gets blocked off and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let anything in. They lose time, and they are very concerned about that,â&#x20AC;? said river pilot Michael Lorino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be very costly if they have to unload that cargo in another port and ship it back here because it was

million gallons of crude. Chemical dispersants seemed to be helping to keep oil from floating to the surface, but crews havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to activate a shutout valve underwater. And it could take another week before a 98-ton concreteand-metal box is placed over one of the leaks to capture the oil. More ominously, it could take three months to drill sideways into the well and plug it with mud and concrete. BP PLC said Monday it would compensate people for â&#x20AC;&#x153;legitimate and objectively verifiableâ&#x20AC;? claims from the explosion and spill, but President Barack Obama and others pressed the company to explain exactly what that means. By all accounts, the disaster is certain to cost BP billions. But analysts said the company could handle it; BP is the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third-largest oil company and made more than $6 billion in the first three months of this year. The oil spill has drained $32 billion from BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stock market value. Restaurants, hotels, casinos and other coastal businesses from Florida to Texas are bracing for their own pain, though they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet know where the oil will come ashore or just how much there will be. The rig is owned by Transocean Ltd.

Fish and wildlife are vulnerable to the oil spill resulting from the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig. destined for here.â&#x20AC;? When a tanker and a tugboat collided near New Orleans two years ago, oil cascaded down the river and some 200 ships stacked up, unable to move for several days while the Coast Guard had the vessels scrubbed. Millions of dollars were lost. Several river boat pilots said the edge of the oil slick Monday was 15 to 20 miles off the Southwest Pass, where ships headed to New Orleans enter the Mississippi. The latest satellite image of the slick, taken Sunday night, indicates that it has actually shrunk since last week, but that only means some of the oil has gone underwater. The new image found oil covering about 2,000 square miles, rather

than the roughly 3,400 square miles observed last Thursday, said Hans Graber of the University of Miami. The new image also shows that sizable patches have broken away and are moving to the north and east, Graber said. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not clear when any sizable amount of oil will reach land, because that depends on local currents and what the weather will do over the next few days. Crews have been struggling to stop the more than 200,000 gallons a day spewing from the sea after an offshore drilling platform blew up and sank last month in a disaster that killed 11 workers. The accident is the worst U.S. oil spill since the tanker Exxon Valdez ran aground in Alaska, leaking nearly 11

Gulf; govt defends spill operation WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama awaited a firsthand update on the Gulf Coast oil spill as two members of his Cabinet on Sunday outlined the â&#x20AC;&#x153;very graveâ&#x20AC;? environmental impact and sought to counter criticism the government had reacted slowly. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the administration had treated the explosion at the BP rig April 20 as a potential disaster from the beginning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The physical response on the ground has been from day one as if this could be a catastrophic failure,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every possible resource was being lined up on shore.â&#x20AC;? Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said it was uncertain when the oil, spewing from a pipe nearly a mile beneath the water, would be plugged. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The scenario is a very grave scenario. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at potentially 90 days before you ultimately get to what is the ultimate solution,â&#x20AC;? said Salazar. But then â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lot of oil could spread.â&#x20AC;? Obama flew to Louisiana for briefings on the underwater spill, which remained unstopped and impossible to measure, raising fears it could be pouring more oil into the Gulf than earlier

believed. Traveling with him were White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, homeland security and counterterrorism adviser John Brennan and energy adviser Carol Browner. The Coast Guard estimated that at least 1.6 million gallons of oil have spilled since the April 20 explosion that killed 11 workers on an offshore rig. In the Exxon Valdez disaster, an oil tanker spilled 11 million gallons off Alaskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shores in 1989. Obama has relied on reports from agency chiefs and Coast Guard officials since the magnitude of the spill became clear late Wednesday. Aides report heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been getting regular updates. Salazar, Napolitano and the administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point man on the disaster, the commandant of the Coast Guard, Adm. Thad Allen, made the rounds of the Sunday talk shows to defend the federal response. Allen said it is impossible to know the eventual size of the spill because that will depend on when BP can stop the flow, a technically challenging effort hampered by the wellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s depth where everything must be done by remote control.

NATION BRIEFS

Owner: SUV with bomb sold 3 weeks ago

NEW YORK (AP) — The registered owner of an SUV that was parked in Times Square and rigged with a crude propaneand-gasoline bomb told investigators he sold the vehicle to a stranger for cash three weeks ago, a law enforcement official said Monday. The owner, who lives in Connecticut, was questioned Sunday about his sale of the dark-colored 1993 Nissan Pathfinder to a man he did not know, the official told The Associated Press. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation into the botched bombing is at a sensitive stage. Officials say the owner, whose name has not been released, is not considered a suspect into the bomb scare that forced thousands of tourists to be cleared from several streets in the heart of Times Square on Saturday night. New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne confirmed Monday that investigators had spoken to the registered owner, declining further comment. Investigators were still searching for the driver. The vehicle identification number had been removed from Pathfinder’s dashboard, but it was stamped on the engine and axle, and investigators used it to find the owner of record. Two law enforcement

A frame made from a surveillance video released by the New York Police Monday shows a man, right, pick up a bag after removing a shirt in an alleyway in New York. Police investigating a failed car bomb left in Times Square say the videotape tape shows a possible suspect. officials familiar with the probe said investigators considered the vehicle’s history one of the best chances for cracking the case. The officials spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the probe is at a sensitive stage. Investigators tracked the license plates to a used auto parts shop in Stratford, Conn., where they discovered the plates were connected to a different vehicle. They also spoke to the owner of an auto sales shop in nearby Bridgeport because a sticker on the Pathfinder indicated the SUV had been sold by his dealership. Owner Tom Manis said there was no match between the identification number the officers showed him and any vehicle he sold. In New York, police and FBI were examining hundreds of hours of video from around the area and

wanted to speak with a man in his 40s who was videotaped shedding his shirt near the Pathfinder. The video shows the man slipping down Shubert Alley and taking off his shirt, revealing another underneath. In the same clip, looks back in the direction of the smoking vehicle and puts the first shirt in a bag. They traveled to Pennsylvania for video shot by a tourist of a different person, and were evaluating the tape and determining whether to make it public. In Washington, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Saturday’s attempted bombing was a terrorist act. Attorney General Eric Holder, who earlier in the day refused to classify the incident as terrorism, said the bomber intended to spread fear across New York and said investigators had some good leads in addition to the video-

tape that was released Sunday. Investigators had not ruled out a range of possible motives, and federal officials said they hadn’t narrowed down whether the bomber was homegrown or foreign. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told NBC’s “Today” show that no suspects or theories had been ruled out. “Right now, every lead has to be pursued,” she said. The Pakistani Taliban appeared to claim responsibility for the bomb in three videos that surfaced after the weekend scare, monitoring groups said. New York officials said police have no evidence to support the claims. The SUV was parked near offices of Viacom Inc., which owns Comedy Central. The network recently aired an episode of the animated show “South Park” that the group Revolution Muslim had complained insulted the Prophet Muhammad by depicting him in a bear costume. The date of the botched bombing — May 1 — was International Workers Day, a traditional date for political demonstrations, and thousands had rallied for immigration reform that day in New York. Security had been also been tight in the city in advance of a visit to the United Nations by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at a nuclear weapons conference.

Clinton: Ariz. immigration law invites profiling WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says Arizona’s new immigration law invites racial profiling and she thinks the state may be overstepping its authority. Clinton says the law “does what a state doesn’t have the authority to do — try to impose their own immigration law.” And she tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” there’s no doubt it invites racial profiling and that people might be questioned about their immigration status because of their accents. The law requires police officers to ask people to prove their immigration status if they have a reasonable suspicion they are illegal immigrants.

Judge: Militia members can leave jail until trial DETROIT (AP) — Nine members of a Michigan militia will be released from jail pending trial after a federal judge on Monday harshly criticized the government’s claim they had conspired to overthrow the U.S. government. The decision is a significant defeat for federal authorities, who spoke in tough and triumphant terms after arresting members of a southern Michigan group called the Hutaree in March and charging them with conspiracy to commit sedition and attempted use of weapons of mass destruction. The government “need not wait until people are killed before it arrests conspirators,” U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts said. “But the defendants are also correct: Their

Calif. governor ends support for offshore drilling

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday withdrew his support of a plan to expand oil drilling off the California coast, citing the massive oil spill that resulted from a drilling rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. The announcement assures that no new drilling will take place off the state’s coastline in the foreseeable future because Schwarzenegger would have to include the drilling proposal in his May revision of the state budget. Speaking at a news conference near Sacramento, the governor said television images of the oil spill in the Gulf have changed his mind about the safety of ocean-based oil platforms. “You turn on the television and see this enormous disaster, you say to yourself, ’Why would we want to take on that kind of risk?”’ Schwarzenegger said.

United-Continental looking to business travelers United and Continental Airlines are counting on more business travelers — not higher fares for vacationers — to make their $3 billion merger pay. United CEO Glenn Tilton and Continental CEO Jeffery Smisek announced Monday that the nation’s third- and fourth-largest airlines will consolidate into the world’s biggest in hopes of drawing more business travelers who will pay top dollar for last-minute tickets. It’s a stock swap deal in which United acquires Continental, and the new airline is to be called United. The two airlines have been losing tons of money, first from high fuel prices, then the recession. Now they say their combined network of flights across the U.S. and around the world will attract enough corporate travelers to boost revenue by up to $900 million a year.

Actress Redgrave has died at age 67

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lynn Redgrave, an introspective and independent player in her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acting dynasty who became a 1960s sensation as the unconventional title character of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Georgy Girlâ&#x20AC;? and later dramatized her troubled past in such onewoman stage performances as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shakespeare for My Fatherâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nightingale,â&#x20AC;? has died. She was 67. Her publicist Rick Miramontez, speaking on behalf of her children, said Redgrave died peacefully Sunday night at her home in Kent, Conn. Children Ben, Pema and Annabel were with her, as were close friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our beloved mother Lynn Rachel passed away peacefully after a seven year journey with breast cancer,â&#x20AC;? Redgraveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children said in a statement Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She lived, loved and worked harder than ever before. The endless memories she created as a mother, grandmother, writer, actor and friend will sustain us for the rest of our lives. Our entire family asks for privacy through this difficult time.â&#x20AC;? Redgrave was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2002, had a mastectomy in January 2003 and underwent chemotherapy. Her death comes a year after her niece Natasha Richardson died from

The youngest child of Michael Redgrave and Rachel Kempson, Lynn Redgrave never quite managed the acclaim â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or notoriety â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of elder sibling Vanessa Redgrave, but received Oscar nominations for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Georgy Girlâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gods and Monsters,â&#x20AC;? and Tony nominations for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mrs. Warrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Profession,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shakespeare for My Fatherâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Constant Wife.â&#x20AC;? In recent years, she also made appearances on TV in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ugly Betty,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Law & Orderâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Desperate Housewives.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vanessa was the one expected to be the great actress,â&#x20AC;? Lynn Redgrave told The Associated Press

in 1999. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was always, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Corinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the brain, Vanessa the shining star, oh, and then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lynn.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In theater, the rubyhaired Redgrave often displayed a sunny, sweet and open personality, much like her ebullient offstage personality. It worked well in such shows as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Black Comedyâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; her Broadway debut in 1972 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and again two years later in â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Fat Friend,â&#x20AC;? a comedy about an overweight young woman who sheds pounds to find romance. Redgraveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nightingaleâ&#x20AC;? at off-Broadwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Manhattan Theatre Club in 2009 was the last time she appeared on stage in New York. Lights on Broadway marquees will be dimmed Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was adored by audiences, and although

she embarked on a medical treatment as previews began, she never missed a show and gave magnificent performances eight times a week,â&#x20AC;? said Lynne Meadow, artistic director of MTC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We admired her strength, her talent, her courage and her enormous good heart. There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a stage hand, a press rep, a box office person who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worship Lynn. She was true theatre royalty.â&#x20AC;? Tall and blue-eyed like her sister, she was as open about her personal life as Vanessa has been about politics. In plays and in interviews, Lynn Redgrave confided about her family, her marriage and her health. She acknowledged that she suffered from bulimia and served as a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers. With daughter Annabel Clark, she released a 2004 book about her fight with cancer, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Journal: A Mother and Daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Recovery From Breast Cancer.â&#x20AC;? Redgrave was born in London in 1943 and despite self-doubts pursued the family trade. She studied at Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Central School of Speech and Drama, and was not yet 20 when she debuted professionally on stage in a London production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Midsummerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Night Dream.â&#x20AC;?

Country singer Chely Wright reveals she is gay WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Country singer Chely Wright is the latest celebrity to come out. Wright tells People sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gay and that nothing in her life has been more magical than the moment Wright she decided to reveal her sexuality.

Wright is releasing her memoir, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like Me,â&#x20AC;? and her new album, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lifted Off the Ground,â&#x20AC;? this week.

to their 2-year-old daughter, Nahla. The 43-year-old Berry won a best actress Oscar for the 2001 film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monsterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ball.â&#x20AC;? Other screen credits also include â&#x20AC;&#x153;Die Another Dayâ&#x20AC;? and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;X-Menâ&#x20AC;? films.

Michael Douglas: Sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prison sentence â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;adequateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Michael Douglas believes his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five-year sentence for dealing drugs could be a lifesaver, he said Monday on NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today,â&#x20AC;? describing the prison term as â&#x20AC;&#x153;adequate.â&#x20AC;? Douglas expressed hope that incarceration would give 31-year-old Cameron Douglas the time he needs to kick the drug habit that has plagued him since he was 13. Douglas â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was going to be dead or somebody was going to kill him,â&#x20AC;? Douglas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My son was a drug dealer, and he tried to kill himself for a while, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t condone his behavior.â&#x20AC;? Last month, a judge sentenced Cameron Douglas to five years for dealing methamphetamine from a trendy Manhattan hotel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take that amount of time for him to rebuild and start himself afresh,â&#x20AC;? Douglas said. Douglas said his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spirit is good but added that the past yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imprisonment awaiting a sentence has been â&#x20AC;&#x153;really, really difficult.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;With all the mistakes and the disease that Cameron has, he is a great young man,â&#x20AC;? Douglas said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be supporting him if I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel that way.â&#x20AC;? The 65-year-old Oscar winner has accepted a major portion of the blame for his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems, describing himself as an absentee father during Cameronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth too concerned with building his career.

John Rich video fireworks, chopper rile neighbors NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Police were called to the home of country musician John Rich when neighbors complained about the noise from a night video shoot that used fireworks and a helicopter. Police spokeswoman Kristin Mumford told The Tennessean that officers went to Richâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nashville home twice after neighbors reported a raucous party. Mumford said there were no citations issued but Richâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s security crew was asked to keep the noise down. Warner Music Nashville spokeswoman Tree Paine said the filming was done with the proper permits.

Outlook cautious even with spending up

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Factories are churning out more goods. Consumers are spending. Government aid is fueling construction activity. But stagnant pay and weak hiring will likely restrain the economic rebound in coming months. That cautionary picture emerged from a series of economic reports Monday. Consumers stepped up their spending in March by the largest amount in five months. Yet the increase was financed out of savings. Incomes rose only slightly. Unless employers boost pay and ramp up hiring, economists say consumer spending will likely taper off and dampen the recovery. The construction industry remains a concern, too. Industry spending rose 0.2 percent in March, the first increase in five months, Commerce said. But all the strength came from government activity â&#x20AC;&#x201D; much of it related to temporary stimulus money thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected to run out soon. By contrast, construction by the private sector fell to the lowest level in a decade. One sector thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helping drive the recovery is manufacturing. Factory production in April grew at the fastest pace in nearly

Its manufacturing index rose to 60.4 in April from 59.6 in March â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the ninth straight month of growth. A level above 50 indicates expansion. Companies are rebuilding their inventories as demand for goods rises. New orders, a gauge of future production, jumped to 65.7 from 61.5 in March, according to the report. The fastest-growing industries were clothing makers and producers of nonmetallic goods such as glass, mineral wool and ceramic products used in construction. Makers of wood products, the petroleum and coal sector, and plastics and rubber manu-

facturers also reported strong growth. Consumer spending has propelled more production in retail goods. On Friday, clothing maker VF Corp., whose brands include Wrangler, The North Face and Vans, said its sales rose 1 percent to $1.75 billion in the first quarter. The stock market jumped Monday after the improved economic reports, along with news of a merger between United and Continental Airlines, raised expectations about the recovery. The Dow Jones industrial average rose more than 150 points in afternoon trading. But economists caution that the overall picture is clouded by a weak hiring outlook. A report Friday is expected to show no change in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 9.7 percent unemployment rate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The consumer needs job creation and income

growth to pick up significantly to maintain the momentum in consumer spending and we look to Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employment report for further evidence of slow improvement in labor market conditions,â&#x20AC;? analysts for RDQ Economics wrote Monday in a research report. The government reported Friday that the broadest measure of economic activity, the gross domestic product, grew at an annual rate of 3.2 percent in the January-March period. That marked the third quarterly increase since last summer. Most economists believe the recession, which began in December 2007, probably ended in either June or July of last year. The healthy first quarter GDP gain was driven by a big rebound in consumer spending, which powered ahead at an annual rate of 3.6 percent, the best showing in three years. But economists said spending gains of that size canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be maintained without greater income and job growth. Commerce said consumer spending rose 0.6 percent in March, matching economistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; expectations. But personal incomes edged up just 0.3 percent, raising new worries about lackluster income growth. At the same time, the personal savings rate fell to 2.7 percent of after-tax incomes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the lowest level since September 2008.

US says it has 5,113 nuclear warheads WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The United States has 5,113 nuclear warheads in its stockpile and â&#x20AC;&#x153;several thousandâ&#x20AC;? more retired warheads awaiting the junkpile, the Pentagon said Monday in an unprecedented accounting of a secretive arsenal born in the Cold War and now shrinking rapidly. The Obama administration disclosed the size of its atomic stockpile going back to 1962 as part of a campaign to get other nuclear nations to be more forthcoming, and to improve its bargaining position against the prospect of a nuclear Iran. The U.S. has previously regarded such details as top secret. The figure includes both â&#x20AC;&#x153;strategic,â&#x20AC;? or long-range weapons, and those intended for use at shorter range. The Pentagon said the stockpile of 5,113 as of September 2009 represents a 75 percent reduction since 1989.

Clinton not satisfied with US efforts in Sudan WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not satisfied with U.S. efforts in Sudan. But she tells NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meet the Pressâ&#x20AC;? that the situation is â&#x20AC;&#x153;immensely complicated.â&#x20AC;? She says she understands the complaints about Sudanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president, Omar al-Bashir, and allegations of fraud in recent elections in Sudan. He just won another term. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also facing an international arrest warrant for war

crimes committed in Sudanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Darfur region. She says the U.S. and its allies are trying to manage â&#x20AC;&#x153;a very explosive problem.â&#x20AC;? Clinton says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;certainly not satisfied with where we are and what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doingâ&#x20AC;? about the African nation.

Clinton, Ahmadinejad trade charges at UN

UNITED NATIONS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton engaged in a verbal nuclear exchange Monday on the U.N. stage, where nations gathered for a monthlong debate over the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ultimate weapons. Speaking from the podium of the General Assembly Hall, Clinton accused Iran of â&#x20AC;&#x153;flouting the rulesâ&#x20AC;? of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty with its suspect uranium enrichment program, and said it is â&#x20AC;&#x153;time for a strong international response.â&#x20AC;? For his part, Ahmadinejad earlier rejected such allegations, saying Washington has offered not â&#x20AC;&#x153;a single credible proof.â&#x20AC;? They were the opening salvos in four weeks of deliberations over how to improve the NPT, formally reviewed every five years in a meeting of all 189 treaty members â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nations except India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea. The review conference is meant to produce a final document pointing toward ways to better achieve the NPTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals of checking the spread of nuclear weapons, while working toward reducing and eventually eliminating them.

LACROSSE PLAYER CHARGED IN SLAYING CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — A senior on the Virginia men’s lacrosse team was charged Monday with the slaying of a fellow student the women’s team, stunning students at the picturesque campus. George Huguely, 22, of Chevy Chase, Md., was charged with first-degree murder in the death of 22-year-old Yeardley Love, also a senior, of Cockeysville, Md., Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said. Longo said Love’s roommate called police around 2:15 a.m. concerned that Love may have had an alcohol overdose, but police found her dead with obvious physical injuries. “It was quickly apparent to them that this young lady was the victim of something far worse,” Longo said. The police chief said that Huguely and Love were in relationship at some point and that Huguely quickly became the focus. Longo would not detail the extent of Love’s injuries, but said there did not appear to be any weapons used in the slaying. A steady stream of students preparing for finals later in the week wandered down the street that runs by the house where Love’s body was found. Drivers slowed down and pointed as they approached the building. “Everybody’s kind of taking a wait-and-see approach,” said Drew Cook, a 22-year-old senior from Burke. Cook said all he knew was what was included in an e-mail sent to the university community. He said suggestions from police that it could be a domestic incident and there were no other suspects didn’t ease tensions.

CHARLOTTE — John Fox knows the Panthers are faster. The Carolina coach isn’t ready to say they’re better. And he doesn’t have a lot of time to figure it out. Forgive Fox if he might have forgotten the names of a few players at last weekend’s minicamp. Of the 85 players on the field, 36 weren’t with the team for the final game of the 2009 season. Counting restricted free agent cornerback Richard Marshall, who skipped the workouts because he’s upset with his contract situation, 67 of Carolina’s 86 players are 25 or younger. It’s not necessarily the best scenario for a coach entering the last year of his contract and coming off an 8-8 season.

“I think we’ve increased our team speed some,” Fox said. “We’ve got a lot of youth and with youth comes energy, so that’s the good news. Now we’ve just got to direct that energy in the right way.” With his future uncertain past 2010, Fox’s challenges are numerous thanks to owner Jerry Richardson’s decision to shed payroll ahead of the expiration of the collective bargaining agreement after this season. Quarterback Jake Delhomme, fullback Brad Hoover, receiver Muhsin Muhammad, right guard Keydrick Vincent, defensive tackles Damione Lewis and Maake Kemoeatu and linebacker Na’il Diggs were either cut or not re-signed.

nba JAMES GETS SECOND STRAIGHT MVP AWARD CLEVELAND (AP) — The NBA’s MVP can now take his second trophy home. Cavaliers superstar LeBron James was presented with his second straight MVP award on Monday night by commissioner David Stern in a ceremony before Cleveland hosted the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinal. Stern called James an “extraordinary” talent before giving the trophy to James, who won in a landslide vote announced Sunday, shortly before tip-off. With the crowd doing its customary “M-V-P!” chant, James thanked his teammates and then reminded the 20,000-plus fans that his goal is to win a championship this season. During a news conference, Stern said he is amazed at how James can shoot halfcourt shots with a simple flick of his wrist.

Cavaliers looking to bounce back after losing two straight By RYAN SARDA

sarda@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — Matt Burnett wants his Southern Lee Cavaliers to get back to their winning ways. Since winning six straight games, the Cavaliers (13-8-1, 5-5) have dropped three of their last four games including two in a row. They will be looking to end this slide when they travel to Douglas Byrd at 7 p.m. Tuesday. After disappointing losses to county rival Lee County and conference foe Union Pines last week, Burnett feels that the Cavaliers can get back on track with a win over the Eagles. “We’ve got to just move on from games like that,” said Burnett. “I told them during practice that it’s time to get back to playing good, solid baseball again. It’s time for us to get back to our winning ways. Sometimes games like those happen and you just want

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Duke and Butler will meet again next season, eight months after their classic national championship game. The two schools will play Dec. 4 in what is sure to be a highly anticipated regular-season game at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J. The Blue Devils won their fourth NCAA title in Indianapolis on April 5 by beating the fan favorite Bulldogs 6159, as Gordon Hayward’s potential winning shot from halfcourt bounced off the rim. “It’s an honor for our program to be invited to play in the Izod Center in December,” Butler coach Brad Stevens said in a release. “Obviously, the challenge will be great, as we have a tremendous amount of respect for Duke.” The Blue Devils have a long, successful history at the arena, going 18-1 and winning five NCAA regional finals there. Butler has never played at the Meadowlands, which is losing the NBA’s New Jersey Nets as a tenant. “Given the outstanding game played between Duke and Butler in the 2010 NCAA championship, there will be added interest in next year’s matchup. Surely, Coach Stevens will have his team ready to perform at a high level,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “We look forward to what will be a significant challenge.” The game will be televised by ESPN. Both teams will go into the season among the favorites to return to the championship game. The Blue Devils return stars Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith but must replace senior starters Jon Scheyer, Brian Zoubek and Lance Thomas. Hayward declared early for the NBA draft but has not signed with an agent and could rejoin Shelvin Mack, Matt Howard and Ronald Nored in the Bulldogs’ lineup.

McIlroy makes a big splash at Quail Hollow

AP photo

Phil Mickelson tees off on the 5th hole during the final round of the Quail Hollow Championship golf tournament at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte on Sunday.

Mickelson has a chance to go to No. 1 By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — That 15-foot birdie putt Phil Mickelson made on the final hole at Quail Hollow meant more than an extra $130,000 for finishing in second place alone. It put him in position to become No. 1 in the world. Mickelson could reach the top spot in the world ranking for the first time in his career by winning The Players Championship, provided Tiger Woods finishes out of the top five. Of the players considered to be the “Big Four” of this generation — Woods,

Mickelson, Vijay Singh and Ernie Els — Mickelson is the only player to have never been No. 1. The Quail Hollow Championship had already been decided when Mickelson came to the 18th hole in a tie for second with Angel Cabrera, five shots behind winner Rory McIlroy. The final birdie that made him solo runner-up gave him enough extra points for a chance to rise to No. 1 at the TPC Sawgrass. Woods, who missed the cut last week for only the sixth time in his career, has been No. 1 the last five years. Mickelson is trying

to become only the 13th player to be No. 1 since the rankings began in 1986, and he has momentum on his side. He won The Players Championship two years ago, and he is coming off a Masters victory and a runner-up finish at Quail Hollow. “I’m glad that this first tournament went well, because after a couple weeks off after a big high like Augusta, you never know where the game is going to be at,” Mickelson said Sunday. “And the way that I played and kept the ball in play and hit good shots, I’m looking forward to next week.”

CHARLOTTE (AP) — Rory McIlroy first gained worldwide attention when he was 18 and opened the British Open with a bogeyfree round at Carnoustie. Then came a European Tour victory a year later, and a pronouncement by Tiger Woods that the kid had all the tools to one day be No. 1 in the world. Sunday was only a step. Even so, the 20-yearold from Northern Ireland showed why there is so much fuss about him. With one dazzling shot after another, McIlroy shattered the course record at the Quail Hollow Championship with a 10-under 62 for a fourshot victory over Masters champion Phil Mickelson, making him the youngest PGA Tour winner since Woods. He has been billed as Europe’s next big star. He made quite an impression in America. “One of the best rounds I’ve seen in a long, long time,” Mickelson said after a birdie on the final hole gave him a 68 and second place alone. “He’s an incredible player, a great talent, a great young man, a great kid. I really enjoy being around him. And I’m so happy for him. I’m just disappointed it’s at my expense.” McIlroy didn’t feel the stress of being locked in a tense battle at the Quail Hollow Championship with Mickelson and twotime major champion An-

The freckled-face kid didn’t feel anything at all. He saw the flag, hit the shots and roared to such a big lead that no one could catch him. He hit 5-iron up the hill on the par-5 15th hole to 3 feet for eagle. He blasted 7-iron out of the bunker on the next hole to 5 feet for birdie. And when he emphatically ended his

amazing round with a 40foot birdie putt, McIlroy thrust his fist in the air as thousands of fans around the 18th green leapt out of their chairs. McIlroy can sure put on a show. “I suppose I got into the zone,” said McIlroy, who turns 21 on Tuesday. “I hadn’t realized I was going in 9, 10 under. I just know I got my nose in front, and I was just trying to stay there.”

Sports Report: Roethlisberger spends weekend at clinic

The Sanford Herald / Tuesday, May 4, 2010 / 5B

PITTSBURGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Pittsburgh PostGazette reported Monday that Ben Roethlisberger spent the weekend in a clinic being evaluated as part of the sanctions handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. The newspaper cited an unidentified team source saying the evaluation will take days rather than weeks. Goodell suspended the Pittsburgh

Steelers quarterback six games without pay last month. A Roethlisberger Steelers spokesman said the team is prohibited by league rule from discussing Roethlisbergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s treatment. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said all details of the evala-

tion are confidential. The two-time Super Bowl winner was ordered to undergo a â&#x20AC;&#x153;comprehensive behavioral evaluation by professionalsâ&#x20AC;? after violating the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal conduct policy. Goodell announced the punishment a week after prosecutors decided not to charge Roethlisberger in a case involving a 20year-old college student who accused the quarterback of sexually assaulting

Panthers

have a combined eight NFL starts, with rookie Jimmy Clausen figuring to challenge Matt Moore for the starting job after Delhomme was released. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sharp guy. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picked things up very fast. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sharp in football, and I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s key at the quarterback position,â&#x20AC;? Fox said of Clausen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swimming right now. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still new. You have to get a feel for everybody.â&#x20AC;? The receiver position is almost as green. After Steve Smith, the 10 other receivers on the roster have combined to catch 40 passes in the NFL. Third-

round pick Brandon LaFell is a candidate to start opposite Smith. Fellow rookie and converted quarterback Armanti Edwards could be in the mix for the No. 3 role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re quiet. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hardly getting any questions,â&#x20AC;? Smith said of the young group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just quiet and working through it, trying to figure it out and should I say something. I think when we come back in June theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be more wide open and feel a little bit more comfortable.â&#x20AC;? Second-year safety Sherrod Martin is expected

to replace Harris, while thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a crowded competition for the strongside linebacker and right guard jobs. Second-year defensive end Everette Brown is expected to replace Peppers on the line, while Tank Tyler, Louis Leonard and Corvey Irvin and Ed Johnson compete at defensive tackle. The Panthers have had success in the draft in recent years, and have focused on bringing in speedy, athletic players. Now Carolina expects many of them to contribute right away.

Burnett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been our goal all year long. We want to be hot when its time for the playoffs to start and this is a chance for us to accomplish that. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten the losing out of our system and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time now for us to close out the season as strong as we possibly can to get a good seed.â&#x20AC;? The last time Southern Lee and Douglas Byrd met, the Cavaliers cruised to an easy 19-1 victory at Tramway Athletic Park. With tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contest in Fayetteville, Burnett knows that this Byrd team isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the same

as the one the Cavaliers played on April 19. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Douglas Byrd has snuck up on a few teams and has gotten a few big wins in the conference,â&#x20AC;? said Burnett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anytime you play a team that twice, especially a team that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been pretty successful against, you always worry about that letdown factor. So, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been focusing on what we have to do as a team. Byrdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good team and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them sneaking up on us. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for a good seed in the playoffs and to get the momentum back in

our favor.â&#x20AC;? No matter where the Cavaliers go in the state tournament, Burnett knows that once his team is hot, it can compete with any top program in the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to get back to playing good baseball and move forward from our recent woes,â&#x20AC;? said Burnett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When this team is hot, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt in my mind that we can play with anyone. Next week will be time to show that off but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to take care of business and get hot this week.â&#x20AC;?

Peppers was allowed to leave in free agency. The latest salary dump came last week, when starting strong safety Chris Harris was traded to Chicago for backup linebacker Jamar Williams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a budget and that had something to do with it,â&#x20AC;? said Fox in his brief explanation of the deal. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left over is some promising talent, but strikingly little experience. The four quarterbacks

With just two games left, Burnett is confident that the Cavaliers can lock up a decent spot in the upcoming NCHSAA 3-A State Tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to just play as well as we can before the playoffs,â&#x20AC;? said

ATLANTA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Billy Wagner has given the Atlanta Braves early notice he plans to retire after the season to spend more time with his family. Wagner said he is making his plans known early this season so the Braves can have time to prepare for 2011. Wagner, 38, plans to retire even though he has a $6.5 million option to play in 2011. He said the extra time he spent with his wife and four children while recovering from elbow ligament-replacement surgery in 2008 made it more difficult to be away from his Virginia home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think when I was home with the kids I just enjoyed it, probably too much,â&#x20AC;? Wagner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I want to be and I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something else the Lord has got for me to do and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to go that way.â&#x20AC;? Wagner used an off day on Monday for a quick trip to his home in Crozet, Va., near Charlottesville. The Braves open a series at Washington on Tuesday. Braves general manger Frank Wren said Wagnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision is not a complete surprise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew this was a possibility from the beginning,â&#x20AC;? Wren said Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We respect Billyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to be with his family and we are glad he is with us this year.â&#x20AC;? The 2011 option for Wagner kicks in if he finishes 50

games this season. He is 1-0 with two saves and a 2.00 ERA in his first season as the Atlanta Bravesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; closer. Wagner has proved he has made a full recovery from his elbow surgery. The left-handerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fastball still hits the upper 90s on the radar gun. He is sixth all-time with 387 career saves, including two this season. Wagner is chasing John Francoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record of 424 saves by a left-hander. In spring training, Wagner said he was motivated by the record, but now he says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll retire even if he falls short of that mark this season. Wagner said he told manager Bobby Cox of his decision on Friday so the Braves would know what to expect when preparing for next season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really just wanted to make sure they know where I stand so if something comes up and they have to make a move theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not caught off-guard,â&#x20AC;? Wagner said. Wagner said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discuss the possibility of retirement during contract negotiations with the Braves last winter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it was the time,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought we should go on and get playing and see where it goes. We were planning to tell them at the right time.â&#x20AC;? Wagner said his decision so early in the 2010 season was not an indication he is not satisfied with his performance.

NBA Playoffs

6B / Tuesday, May 4, 2010 / The Sanford Herald

Howard, rested Magic open series with Atlanta ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — There has been no crowd for the games the Orlando Magic have been playing lately. No officials. No true opponent. Not even a clock. “That’s the worst part,” guard Vince Carter said. “You wish there was a clock up there and you could see it tick down. It’s not. There’s not even a score. It’s just go, go, go.” Practice time is finally over. When the Magic open their Eastern Conference semifinal against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night, eight days will have passed since they swept Charlotte. The Hawks needed the full seven games to get by

undermanned Milwaukee, meaning they got a turnaround of little more than 48 hours. The contrasting layoffs heading into the best-ofseven series between the Southeast Division rivals make for intriguing dilemmas. The Magic have been simulating opponents’ players in practice. They studied film and prepared last week as if they were facing Milwaukee when the Bucks led the series 3-2, then threw that information away, practicing late Sunday just so they could wait until Game 7 finished. The time off has been longer than anything they’ve experienced this

season — even during training camp. “It felt like we had went fishing for a minute,” Orlando’s Dwight Howard said, chuckling. “We was at home chilling. Everybody was at home like, ’When do we play again?”’ Now they know. The Hawks had a tougher-than-expected series against a Milwaukee team missing star center Andrew Bogut. But Atlanta returned from a monumental Game 5 collapse to run away with the last two and build some momentum heading to Orlando. Far healthier than a year ago when they were swept by Cleveland in the second round, the Hawks have no

overlying injuries. They also have had almost no time to prepare for a team that has dominated them of late. “It can go against you or it can help you,” Hawks coach Mike Woodson said of the layoff. “If your team is banged up, they had a good week to heal some wounds. Sometimes layoffs can hurt you as well. As a coach I’m going in knowing they’re ready to play, without a doubt.” The Hawks had lost six straight regular-season games to the Magic until their last meeting, when Josh Smith swooped in to dunk Joe Johnson’s miss ahead of the buzzer for an 86-84 win.

Jazz hoping good start can limit Kobe’s big finishes LOS ANGELES (AP) — Utah coach Jerry Sloan has watched Kobe Bryant’s playoff evolution from its inauspicious beginnings. The Los Angeles Lakers’ star guard wouldn’t have become a peerless postseason finisher without his performance at the erstwhile Delta Center in 1997, when Bryant spectacularly failed to finish off the Jazz. The 18-year-old rookie’s four infamous airballs late in the final game of that second-round playoff

series in Salt Lake City only made Bryant tougher and more determined. Thirteen years later, the calculating veteran makes sure no lead over the Lakers is safe — certainly not the tenuous fourpoint lead Bryant erased Sunday with a few flicks of his wrist in Game 1 of the clubs’ latest playoff clash. “You’re not going to stop Kobe Bryant at this point,” Sloan said Monday before practice at the Los Angeles Clippers’ Playa Vista training complex. “You can double him and

try to make their big guys make a shot, but you just have to play a little harder and hope he’ll miss a few. ... He’s learned a lot of tricks over the years, a lot of ways to score in a close game. It’s a tougher task to defend him than almost anybody.” Bryant led Los Angeles to a 104-99 win with deceptive ease in the opener, scoring 11 points in the final four minutes. Game 2 is Tuesday night at Staples Center. Back in 1997, the teenage Bryant — whose

shaved head gave him more than a passing resemblance to slain rapper Tupac Shakur — first airballed a mid-range jumper that could have won Game 5 in regulation. Bryant then missed the rim on a 3-point attempt early in overtime before leaving another long jumper far short in the final minute. He finished by with an airball on a potential tying 3-pointer, which bounced meekly out of bounds in the waning seconds to the delight of a jeering crowd.

NBA BRIEFS Reports: Del Negro out as Bulls coach CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bulls are set to announce coach Vinny Del Negro’s firing, according to multiple reports. WBBM-TV along with the Chicago Tribune and ESPNChicago.com, citing sources, reported that a formal announcement will be made on Tuesday. General manager Gar Forman, executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson and Del Negro did not return messages from the Associated Press seeking comment. Bulls spokesman Tim Hallam had no comment. The Bulls went 41-41 and made the postseason in each of their two seasons under Del Negro, losing to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in five games after pushing Boston in a thrilling seven-game series last year.

Stern hopes James stays with Cavs CLEVELAND (AP) — NBA commissioner David Stern hopes this summer’s free agency doesn’t take away from the rest of the playoffs. Stern, speaking before an Eastern Conference semifinal between Boston and Cleveland, hopes James re-signs with the Cavaliers. James headlines what is expected to be a marquee class that can include Miami’s Dwyane Wade and Toronto’s Chris Bosh. Stern is concerned the future decisions of James and others will take away from the NBA finals and this summer’s draft. Free agency doesn’t officially begin until July 1. Stern presented James with his second straight MVP award prior to Game 2.

76ers interview Avery Johnson for coaching job PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Former NBA coach Avery Johnson has been interviewed by the Philadelphia 76ers for their coaching position. The Sixers say that Johnson met Monday with

general manager Ed Stefanski and other members of the organization in Houston. Stefanski says the meeting was “informative” and he praised Johnson as a motivator. The Sixers already interviewed former coach Doug Collins. Johnson will meet with the New Orleans Hornets on Tuesday in Texas. He has been working as a TV analyst for ESPN. Johnson coached Dallas for three-plus seasons, going 194-70 in the regular season and 23-24 in the playoffs. He guided the Mavs to the NBA finals in 2006, but was fired after a first-round playoff series loss to New Orleans in 2008.

Calipari says Orton, Bledsoe likely gone LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky coach John Calipari says he would be “shocked” if freshmen Daniel Orton and Eric Bledsoe decide to return to school rather than enter the NBA draft. Three underclassmen — junior Patrick Patterson and freshmen John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins — have announced they will hire an agent, giving up their amateur eligibility. Calipari says he expects the center Orton and guard Bledsoe to also be early picks, even though they haven’t officially declared for the draft. “I got another call today from a team that loves Daniel Orton,” Calipari said Monday during a news conference. “That team is going to pick in the middle of the first round. There are teams all over that first round that say we really like the guy.” Asked whether he thinks Wall will go No. 1 overall as expected, Calipari said he believed it was close between him and Cousins. As for his recent history at Memphis and now Kentucky of drafting “one and done” players who go straight to the NBA as freshmen, Calipari says he’d prefer a situation similar to in baseball, where high school players can enter the draft directly or must wait until they’ve completed three years of college.

DEAR ABBY

BRIDGE HAND

A rival’s complaint triggers firing on worker’s first day

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Don’t give in until you get what you want and you will have no regrets. Don’t let uncertainty be your guide. Take hold of every opportunity in the upcoming year and don’t let anger or disappointment slow you down. Love and romance will benefit you personally and domestically. Your numbers are 4, 12, 25, 28, 30, 44, 49 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t take anything or anyone for granted. Business or personal problems will surface if you have neglected what your partner is trying to do. By being a little more accommodating, you can secure your financial position. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do whatever it takes to ensure that a business venture has the potential to make financial gains. A partnership will put you in a good position and give you greater momentum to achieve the success you are looking for. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dreaming can be fun but it’s what you do to make things happen that will bring you satisfaction. Take the initiative to get your plans off the ground. Dealing with rules and regulations first will save you time and money later. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may need a little coaxing in the beginning but, once you start to move in a new direction, you will realize how much you can accomplish. Being reluctant to try something new will be your downfall and can lead to problems with someone you love. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There is a lot to be thankful for. Your ability to bring people together and to make deals happen will put you in a good position. An interesting encounter with someone you love will lead to a better relationship. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t hang around waiting to see what every-

WORD JUMBLE

one else is going to do. An opportunity won’t be offered indefinitely. Get moving -- it’s time to make plans for the future. Don’t let a lack of confidence hold you back. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You must be competitive if you want to come out on top. Expect to face some negative responses and opposition. Use your intuition and will power to take you down a path that encourages you to follow your dreams. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stay on top of matters if you want to get ahead. Focus on what everyone around you is doing and how you can make improvements of your own that will lead to your success. A couple of last-minute changes will catch the competition off guard. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You need to chase an adventure or implement some excitement into you life. Don’t be daunted by the changes from the people around you. It may be time for you to move on and pursue a different dream. Romance is in the stars. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Lead the way. Waiting for someone to do something is a waste of time. No is not an acceptable answer and can’t is not in your vocabulary. Professional changes may be necessary and, if you act now, you will find a way to earn more money. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t say anything you don’t want repeated. Your contributions will be examined and can cost you your reputation if you don’t live up to your promises. Allow the changes that are upon you to take place. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Make whatever you do or offer count. You don’t have to speed through things in order to make an impact. You will be entrusted with someone’s concerns because of your compassionate nature.

DEAR ABBY: My wife was hired for an administrative position. On her first day of work, they called her into the human resources director’s office and told her she was being “let go” because of her website. The site has photos of her when she worked as a model for a large department store. They are in no way provocative or overly revealing. Photos of our children are also on the site. The HR director told her that one of the other (internal) applicants had Googled her and had seen the site. An image so upset the other applicant that she made a formal complaint, which caused my wife’s dismissal! We consulted a lawyer and contacted the local Equal Employment Opportunity Commission only to be told that North Carolina is an “at will” employment state and that the employer did nothing wrong. We feel their actions were wrong. Is there anything that can be done? — YANKEE IN CONFEDERATE COUNTRY DEAR YANKEE: I’m sorry, but the answer is no. In most states there is a presumption of “at will” employment unless you have a written contract to the contrary. However, the employer cannot terminate an employee for an illegal reason — such as age, religion, gender, sexual orientation or a disability. It does not appear from your letter that your wife was terminated for an illegal reason, but what happened stinks anyway.

P.S. You’ll lead a happier life if you stop feeling that you have to apologize for your mother’s behavior. You are responsible only for your own. o

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

o DEAR ABBY: My mother got drunk at a family function and started a fight with me. I ended up leaving before it could escalate, but I feel I ruined the host’s day. Would it be appropriate to send an “I’m sorry” note, and how would I word it? — MAKING AMENDS IN TENNESSEE DEAR MAKING AMENDS: The person making the amends should be the person who created the scene -- your mother. If you feel something needs to be said by you, and apparently you do, then write your host and say, “I feel terrible about what happened at your party and would like to apologize for my mother’s behavior. I left before she could create a scene, but I’m afraid it cast a shadow on your day, and for that I would like to apologize.” Sign it with love.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been lucky enough to travel all over the world during our long marriage. Over the years, we collected lovely items from every location. Now that we are older, we have decided to move into a smaller home, and would like to share these lovely souvenirs with our friends. Although I think “Ellen” would love to have one of my silk scarves, and “Peter” would appreciate a pair of my husband’s marble bookends, or “Annemarie” would cherish my necklace from India, etc., I’m unsure that my choices would be their choices. Would it be proper for us to ask our friends to choose among our treasure rather than our making the choice for them? — WORLD TRAVELER IN MIAMI BEACH DEAR WORLD TRAVELER: I commend you for your generosity; however, you might run into trouble if several of your friends choose the same item. Were I in your shoes, I would make the selection for each of them. (Include a note with the gift — i.e., “Ellen, this scarf matches your eyes,” “Annemarie, I know you love ethnic jewelry,” etc.)

ODDS AND ENDS Buck wild: 2 rogue deer run amok in Wis. ale house MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks’ rallying cry — “fear the deer” — turned into a punchline Sunday afternoon when two deer burst through the glass doors of a Menomonie restaurant as patrons watched a Bucks playoff game. The first deer apparently hurt itself, bloodying its snout and becoming dazed, said Jay Ouellette, general manager of the Stout Ale House. Two customers were able to safely wrestle it to the ground. The other deer fled into a private room. Cornered deer can be dangerous because they kick and bite, but a restaurant worker managed to wrestle that animal down as well, Ouellette said. “I could tell it was starting to get a little anxious,” he said. “There was definitely the possibility of injury.” The incident happened about 12:20 p.m. — shortly after the Bucks started Game 7 of their playoff series against Atlanta. There were about 30 customers in the restaurant at the time, many watching the game. Bucks fans chant “fear the deer” in support of their team. After the deer broke in, customers joked that the cry had a new meaning to them. “They were still kind of in disbelief, but everyone was having a good time with it,” Ouellette said. Things could have been worse for one man who narrowly avoided being hit by the charging deer. Surveillance video shows the man pausing in the lobby before walking

MY ANSWER outside and closing the door behind him. Moments later he jumps out of the way as the two bucks slam into the doors, tearing them off their hinges and spraying a shower of glass. Replacing the doors was expected to cost several thousand dollars, said David Burg, the restaurant’s vice president of operations. Insurance was expected to cover most of the cost, he said. Ouellette said its the first time since the restaurant opened in 2006 that it’s had a problem with deer. There’s a golf course nearby that deer often visit but they never cross the large parking lot to the restaurant’s front door, he said. “I think they just lost their bearings and got startled,” he said. “I’ve seen this happen on TV before, but I never thought it would happen around here. It was pretty amusing.”

Cops: Man awaiting sobriety test takes last swig BELLEVIEW, Fla. (AP) — Authorities said a central Florida man took one last swig of alcohol while waiting to take a sobriety test. Marion County Sheriff’s deputies stopped 61-year-old Dana Seaman after noticing his car swerve three times. Seaman said he’d been drinking and agreed to a sobriety test. But first, Deputy Eric Larson said he watched Seaman drink from a cup and toss it under the passenger seat. According to a police report, the cup smelled strongly of alcohol. Seaman refused a breath test. He has been charged with DUI. A message left for Seaman was not immediately returned Monday. See answer, page 2A

Jesus was unique Q: Some people came to my door the other day to talk about religion, and (if I understood them) they said it’s a mistake to say that Jesus was the unique Son of God. We’re all sons of God, they said. I don’t know much about religion, but are they right? --Mrs. A.McK.

A: From what you say, I’m afraid your visitors misunderstood what the Bible teaches about Jesus, and also about us. And it’s an important point, because unless we understand who Jesus was, we’ll miss the greatest truth of all: that we can become members of God’s family forever because of what He has done for us. Let me explain. The Bible says that only one thing separates us from God, and that is our sin. The reason it separates us from God is because He is absolutely holy and pure -- so pure that even one sin would banish us from His presence. And no matter how good we are, we have all sinned, and we all stand guilty before God. The Bible says, “There is no one righteous, not even one” (Romans 3:10). But how can we be cleansed of our sins? We can’t cleanse ourselves; we don’t have the power. Only God can cleanse us -- and this is what He did by sending His only Son into the world for our salvation. He alone was without sin -- and the reason is because He alone was God in human flesh. As the Bible says, “He is the image of the invisible God” (Colossians 1:15). Don’t be misled, but by a simple act of faith turn to Jesus and trust Him alone for your salvation. And when you do, God will forgive you and make you His child forever.
