SANFORD — When it comes to mom, LeRoy Wilson admits he’s biased. “She’s the greatest lady I’ve ever met in my life,” he says. Enough said. This being Mother’s Day, it seems like a good day for him to show his apprecia-
tion. After all, his mother Thelma Wilson — who will celebrate her 98th birthday next week — raised him and three siblings while working multiple jobs in the 1940s. LeRoy’s father was away, fighting off the Nazis in World War II. Meanwhile, LeRoy and his siblings were still much too young to
work, much less take care of themselves. That left the pressure on Thelma to make some money and take care of her children. “That was a big undertaking back then,” LeRoy says. The family lived in

How do you feel Lee County Schools should proceed with its “gifted” program for students — otherwise knows as the AIG program? E-mail editor Billy Liggett at firstname.lastname@example.org
SANFORD — The Lee County Board of Education is bracing for a pocket of angry parents that say they are planning to protest budgetforced changes to the system’s “gifted” students program at Tuesday’s board meeting. The AIG program, created for “academically or intellectually gifted” students, offers additional classroom enrichment for children excelling beyond their peers. But cash-starved school officials moved last year to allow school principals to do away with “pullouts,” a popular technique of taking gifted students out of the standard classroom for one-on-one instruction with AIG teachers. According to some of those miffed parents, they were left out of the decision-making process as school leaders made budget cuts last year, and they plan to let the school board know at the panel’s meeting Tuesday. “It was pulled without any contribution from the community,” said

Event to benefit county library
Dana Atkins, one of those parents and a recent Board of Education candidate defeated in Tuesday’s primary election. Atkins has one child in Lee County Schools that does not participate in AIG, but she said she became involved after hearing the complaints of longtime AIG teachers. Board of Education Chairman Bill Tatum couldn’t say Saturday which principals nixed pullouts, but Atkins said pullouts were lost in many schools. Without the individual sessions, AIG students will remain in specialized classrooms with other designated AIG children, school officials said. That’s not good enough, according to Atkins, and some students
SANFORD — Do you have talent you would like to share with the public? If so, you’ll have your chance on Friday, June 4, as the Lee County Library Teen Advisory Board will present Talent on the Green. The family friendly, all-ages event will be held at 7 p.m. at the Depot Park Stage in Downtown Sanford. “Talent on the Green is a chance for people to share their talents with the public,” said Jennifer Gillis, who is youth services librarian. “It will be a relaxing evening of free entertainment suitable for all ages. “We encourage performers to register right away, because we know that Lee County is just brimming with talented folks and spaces will go fast.” To register, individuals should contact the library at (919) 718-4665, ext. 5483. Registration deadline is Friday, May 21. A rehearsal will be held at 4 p.m. May 21 at the main branch of the library, 107 Hawkins Ave. The Teen Advisory Board initially considered a battle of the bands. “When we met again last month, the battle of the

This day in history: On May 9, 1980, 35 people were killed when a freighter, the Summit Venture, rammed the Sunshine Skyway Bridge over Tampa Bay in Florida, causing a 1,400foot section of the southbound span to collapse. In 1754, a cartoon in Benjamin Franklin’s Pennsylvania Gazette showed a snake cut in pieces, with each part representing an American colony; the caption read, “JOIN, or DIE.” In 1860, writer J.M. Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan, was born in Kirriemuir, Scotland. In 1883, Spanish philosopher Jose Ortega y Gasset was born in Madrid. In 1936, Italy annexed Ethiopia. In 1945, U.S. officials announced that a midnight entertainment curfew was being lifted immediately. In 1961, FCC chairman Newton N. Minow decried the majority of television programming as a “vast wasteland” in a speech to the National Association of Broadcasters. In 1974, the House Judiciary Committee opened public hearings on whether to recommend the impeachment of President Richard M. Nixon. In 1978, the bullet-riddled body of former Italian prime minister Aldo Moro, who’d been abducted by the Red Brigades, was found in an automobile in the center of Rome.

Pantry to sale a gas station in Sanford
Arrest made in Spring Lake murder
â€” The Fayetteville Observer
MacDonaldâ€™s appeal allowed to continue
Continued from Page 1A
SANFORD (MCT) â€” Two gas stations in the Cape Fear region are among 80 properties being sold off by The Pantry Inc. NRC Realty & Capital Advisors LLC said this week it is working with The Pantry in a â€œstrategic divestitureâ€? of the stations, convenience stores and empty properties throughout the Southeast. A Mobil station at 921 W. Broad St. in St. Pauls and a Citgo at 3106 S. Horner Blvd. in Sanford are among 11 locations up for sale in North Carolina. The stores will be sold using a â€œbuy one, some or allâ€? sealed bid process, according to NRC. A bid deadline has not been set. Information about the sale is online at nrc. com/1005. â€œWhile these sites donâ€™t fit with our companyâ€™s current strategic plans,â€? said Jim Bosworth, a vice president with The Pantry, â€œthey can be excellent locations for the right buyer, be they national distributors, independent operators or those in other retail businesses.â€? The Pantry is one of the nationâ€™s largest independently operated convenience store chains with 1,655 stores in 11 Southeastern states, as of January. Formerly headquartered in Sanford, the company is now based in Cary.
LILLINGTON (MCT) â€” Investigators made an arrest early today in the death of a man found inside a burning home off N.C. 210 Thursday. Pressley Parks, 26, of Spring Lake, is charged with firstdegree murder in the death of William Parks Frank Smith Jr., 49, of 30 Appaloosa Drive in Spring Lake, according to a release from the Harnett County Sheriffâ€™s Office. The fire at Smithâ€™s home near the Cumberland County line was reported about 8 a.m., the release said. Firefighters from the Anderson Creek Fire Department found Smith when they went inside the house, the release said. Lawmen were called and found that Smithâ€™s vehicle was missing. It was found abandoned a few miles from the house, the release said. Investigators say the fire was deliberately set in an effort to destroy evidence in Smithâ€™s death, the release said. The fire was limited to one room and caused minor damage, the release said. Parks is being held in the Harnett County Detention Center without bail. â€” The Fayetteville Observer
will miss out as a result. â€œI kind of feel like weâ€™re doing them a disservice,â€? she said. Atkins added that the technique was also advantageous for non-AIG students because it created smaller standard classrooms, enhancing the learning experience. According to Tatum, no new changes, aside from last yearâ€™s moves, are in store for the AIG program at this time and in the â€œforeseeable future.â€? Last yearâ€™s budgetary amendments were incorporated into an in-theworks draft plan for the program from this year through 2013. School leaders say itâ€™s all a misunderstanding and that officials have welcomed input from parents since they began making changes to the AIG program. Parents are expected to speak out at Tuesdayâ€™s meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. in the Lee County Government Center.

FORT BRAGG (MCT) â€” A federal appeals court ruled Thursday against a government motion to dismiss the appeal of convicted killer Jeffrey MacDonald. Lawyers for the government had asked the court to dismiss the appeal because MacDonaldâ€™s arguments were outside the scope first approved by the court.

SUNDAY THUMBS THUMBS UP HONORING BUSINESS Congratulations to Robbie and Jeff Yow, of Chatlee Boat & Marine, for being named winners of the Small Business Owners of the Year Award, and to Jim Felton, of the Central Carolina Community College Small Business Center, for being named winner of the Small Business Advocate Award. The Yows have maintained a strong local business over the years — with Robbie Yow saying that they owe a lot of their suc-
cess to God. Felton has been a tireless promoter on behalf of small business, and, in particular, the Small Business Expo that is held each year at the civic center. It’s rewarding to know that there are such strong small business owners and advocates here in the Central Carolina region.
THUMBS UP FESTIVAL TURNOUT Tuesday’s primary election didn’t have the kind of turnout many had hoped for, but maybe too many were still tired from taking in two days of the Pottery Festival over the weekend. Festival organizers told The Herald Tuesday that attendance was up 20 percent over the
previous year, and the popular wine tasting tent, now in its second year, poured more than 2,000 glasses over the two-day event. At a time when our local officials and business leaders are starting to realize the potential for a tourism department of some kind in the future, having events like this — and the recent shooting competition at Deep River Sporting Clays ... and the recent Bike Criterium ... and “South Pacific” at Temple Theatre — are making a strong argument for taking tourism more seriously.
THUMBS UP: MOTHER’S DAY Today is Mother’s Day — a day in which we appropriately salute our mothers. The love a mother holds for her children is special and unique. It’s on this day that these children have the opportunity to say to their mothers, “Thank you for all you have done for me.” A mother is truly a blessing, for their love and support for their children are unwavering. So, to each and every mother, thank you and bless you.

RE: GROUP SAYS EDC NEEDS FLEXIBILITY “We put all our eggs in one basket 20 years ago.” Ms. Dalrymple, where do you think Sanford would be without the businesses in the Industrial Park? Dalrymple says the EDC needs more freedom and flexibility. To do what? Give George Perkins 100 perecent free taxes on his business? Dalrymple does not think anyone likes incentives, but has voted for them every time. That is true leadership, voting to give working class citizens’ taxes to rich people. The EDC has not brought one new business to Broadway or Deep River during Amy Dalrymple’s time on the board. Those of us in Broadway and Deep River should not have to pay such high taxes so Bob Heuts can rake in a six figure salary and play golf and take trips. Businesses do not want incentives. Politicians and overpaid bureaucrats want incentives. Businesses want lower taxes and an even playing field. — dchris46
RE: POTTERY FEST ATTENDANCE UP 20 PERCENT FROM LAST YEAR Being the cynic that I am, I must wonder where all the money taken in at the festival is going to. People pay $5 to enter (5,000-6,000 from outside Lee County) and $10 for the wine tent (2,200 glasses). I am fairly sure that potters, vineyards, chocolate vendors and other food vendors all pay a fee for their place. Evidently volunteers provide most of the labor. It appears to be highly successful but where does the money end up? — townsend
Don Hudson has created one of the largest and most successful events in our area bringing in thousands of people/ tourists to Sanford purchasing gasoline, food, additional shopping at local stores, lodging, etc. He has gathered together over 100 exhibitors from North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina and Virginia who know his event is worthwhile to their businesses and our community. Sad that others can’t see that. — marty007

Guest Columnist Immigration— which side are you on? By GEORGE WILBERG Special to The Herald
“I read the news today, oh boy!” OK ... not my words, but a line from the Beatles song, “A Day in the Life.” But it’s appropriate given the current press concerning the passage in Arizona of a strict new immigration law. America has known for a long time that our immigration system is “broken.” All you have to do is look at one example — the IRS. In order to accommodate those who have no Social Security number, they came up with the ITIN, the “individual taxpayer identification number.” With that number, those who make little income can still qualify for up to $1,000 per child “child tax credit,” as it is called. Three kids equals $3,000 . Some folks call the “Illegal Tax Payer Identification Number.” You decide. The award-winning movie, “Starship Troopers” had the theme — become a soldier, become a citizen. An alien lawfully admitted to America on a Visa can become a soldier in the U.S. armed forces and later can be fast-tracked to be a citizen. The law is on the books that illegal aliens can also be drafted as they must sign up for selective service ... check it out. If you examine the Arizona immigration bill, it basically has the premise that if there is a “legitimate reason” based upon some violation or other suspicious activity, a request by law enforcement may be made to check immigration status. It cannot be based solely upon how you look. The current U.S. Census also is hampered by the diversity of our current population, including many immigrants who do not know how to speak English. The chart to show them in the field has an unreal 51 different languages on it to choose from. Unreal. Due to space restrictions, all requirements cannot be covered here, but you have natural citizens (born in America) and naturalized citizens. My mother was the latter and went through Ellis Island first to start this process after leaving her native Poland just before WWII erupted. She took the citizenship test after much studying, and she only had the equivalent of a fifthgrade education. But hey, she “did it.” Many can. How hard is the test? I got a copy of a past test of 100 questions from the Internet. While some are tougher, like “Why did the Pilgrims come to America,” others are, “What are the colors of our flag,” and What “are the colors of the stars on the flag?” Much has been said about immigrant rights. What rights? There are no rights if they entered this country illegally and continue that status. In order for the laws of the land to apply, you must be a citizen or non-citizen admitted for legal entry. Those laws or rights are spelled out in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Several of those rights are freedom of speech, freedom of the press and the right to assemble. Non-citizens commonly are those who must reside here for five years before they are eligible to become a citizen. Other non-citizens usually are foreign students, foreign workers on a temporary work visa, foreign diplomats or temporary vacationing visitors mostly. This does not seem that difficult to understand, does it? You be the judge. America has been the melting pot of many cultures or races over many years, but now it’s being torn apart by allowing many to flaunt the rules that others have had to follow for years. Which side are you on? The issues are complex and many. However, the very survival of America as a nation will depend upon the commonality of one unifying language, as well as written word. And that common thread is English. Some years ago, one fitness guru once said, “Stop the Insanity” ... it was Susan Powter in her fitness/diet book, and no, that is not in the basic 100 question citizenship test. In that 1993 book, the premise was to “take control of your life.” This immigration issue to me is no different, but it is to “take control of America” by resolving the current insane immigration dilemma that we are all in. o George Wilberg is a resident of Sanford.

Smaller government, anyone?
It’s tea party time
aybe not this week. With the oil spilling in the Gulf, it’s hard to find too many people calling for less government and more reliance on the private sector. Drill, Baby, Drill? Maybe not so fast. BP, to its credit, is taking responsibility for the spill, promising to do everything it can to stem the disaster. But I haven’t heard too many Louisiana Republicans telling the federal government to stay out of it and leave the cleanup to BP. Not even close. A foolish consistency may be the hobgoblin of small minds, but when it comes to federalism and big government, the only consistency tends to be based on whose ox is being gored. No one is for the feds staying out when their coastline, their industry and their economic and environmental well-being are at stake. On a bipartisan basis, the complaints are always that the feds are doing too little too late, not too much too soon. Is Republican Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal now demanding more help from the feds? You bet he is. In New York City, ‘We are all guilty Mayor of wanting to pay Michael for small governBloomberg ment while getting wants more the benefits of big cameras. Darn right. government when Law enforcewe need it.’ ment agencies deserve credit for moving swiftly in the face of the terrifying near-bombing in Times Square. And I don’t know a soul — even my hard-core civil liberties friends — who will be standing up this week demanding less surveillance in public places. With two mining disasters in recent weeks, is anyone saying that the feds should get off the backs of mine owners and leave safety concerns to the private sector so we can get more coal more quickly? New rules go into effect this week limiting the amount of time passengers can be kept sitting on airport runways, notwithstanding the airlines’ protests that it will increase costs and complicate schedules if they have to return to the gate after three hours with nothing to eat or drink (and sometimes no functioning lavatories). They can protest all they want, but I don’t know too many frequent fliers — regardless of party affiliation — who oppose the new rules. As a lawyer, I’m familiar with this particular phenomenon. Nobody likes lawyers (well, almost nobody) until they need one. But when you need a lawyer, everyone wants the best — the toughest, the most aggressive. People will swear up and down about outrageous recoveries and ridiculous awards, until they’re injured and you explain to them that there are caps on their awards and limits on pain and suffering. Then they are outraged at the injustice. The reverse of the old joke — that a conservative is a liberal who’s been mugged — is equally true: A liberal is a conservative who’s been investigated or, worse, “wrongly” charged. The disaster in the Gulf is a timely reminder that the real issue isn’t “big government” versus “small government.” We are all guilty of wanting to pay for small government while getting the benefits of big government when we need it. Medicare and Social Security are classic instances of big government — and, also, the third rail in American politics. Environmentalists are easy to dismiss as anti-business, until an environmental disaster threatens to destroy the local economy or miners are trapped and killed in a collapse. Simplistic rhetoric about “cutting the size of government,” “leaving things to the private sector” and “reducing regulation” may score on political polls, but this week most people recognize that what we really need is strong, effective government to keep our people safe and our economy
Black Americans & liberty
aving recently reached 74 years of age, if one were to ask me what’s my greatest disappointment in life, a top contender would surely be the level of misunderstanding, perhaps contempt, that black Americans have for the principles of personal liberty and their abiding faith in government. Contempt or misunderstanding of the principles of personal liberty and faith in government by no means make blacks unique among Americans, but the unique history of black Americans should make us, above all other Americans, most suspicious of any encroachment on personal liberty and most distrustful of government. Let’s look at it. The most serious injustices suffered by blacks came at the hands of government, at different levels, failure to protect personal liberty. Slavery was only the most egregious example of that failure. Congress and the courts supported the injustice of slavery through the 1850 Fugitive Slave Act and the Dred Scott decision. After emancipation, there were government-enforced Jim Crow laws denying blacks basic liberties and court decisions such as Plessy v. Ferguson that reinforced and gave sanction to private acts that abridged black people’s liberties. The heroic civil rights movement, culminating with the 1964 Civil Rights Act, put an end to the grossest abuses of personal liberties, but government evolved into a subtler enemy. Visit any major city and one would find that the overwhelmingly law-abiding members of the black community are living in constant fear of robbery, assault and murder. In fact, 52 percent of U.S. homicides are committed by blacks, 49 percent of homicide victims are black and 93 percent of them were murdered by fellow blacks. The level of crime in black communities is the result of government’s failure to perform its most basic function, namely the protection of its citizens. The level of criminal activity not only puts residents in physical jeopardy but represents a heavy tax on people least able to bear it. That tax is paid in the forms of higher prices for goods and services and fewer shopping opportunities because supermarkets and other large retailers are reluctant to bear the costs of doing business in high-crime areas. This government failure has the full effect of a law prohibiting economic development in many black communities.
Walter Williams Syndicated Columnist Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.
Then there’s the grossly fraudulent education delivered by the government schools that serve most black communities. The average black high school senior has a sixth- or seventh-grade achievement level and most of those who manage to graduate have what’s no less than a fraudulent diploma, one that certifies a 12th-grade level of achievement when in fact the youngster might not have half that. If the Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan wanted to sabotage black academic excellence, he could not find a more effective means to do so than the government school system in most cities. Tragically, most Americans, including black people whose ancestors have suffered from gross injustices of slavery, think it quite proper for government to forcibly use one person to serve the purposes of another. That’s precisely what income redistribution is: the practice of forcibly taking the fruits of one person’s labor for the benefit of another. That’s also what theft is and the practice differs from slavery only in degree but not kind. What about blacks who cherish liberty and limited government and joined in the tea party movement, or blacks who are members of organizations such as the Lincoln Institute, Frederick Douglass Foundation and Project 21? They’ve been maligned as Oreos, Uncle Toms and traitors to their race. To make such a charge borders on stupidity, possibly racism. After all, when President Reagan disagreed with Tip O’Neill, did either charge the other with being a traitor to his race? Then why is it deemed traitorous when one black disagrees with another, unless you think that all blacks must think alike? I hope it’s misunderstanding, rather than contempt, that explains black hostility toward the principles of liberty.

o one doubts the sincerity or power of the tea party movement anymore. We get it: free market principles, limited government and individual liberty. Those are the three fundaments of the tea party’s “Contract from America,” to which any serious Republican must subscribe, nay, sign in blood. Make it real red. Nowhere is this new power-to-thepeople imperative in starker relief than in Utah — one of the nation’s reddest states — where three-term conservative Sen. Bob Bennett seems likely to lose the Republican Party nomination this weekend. This, despite the fact that Bennett earns an 84 rating from the American Conservative Union, an A ranking from the National Rifle Association — and is nothing like a liberal. But Bennett committed the ultimate sin in tea party circles. He voted for the Troubled Assets Relief Program (TARP), aka “bank bailout,” during the George W. Bush administration. And, he advanced a market-driven health care reform bill as an alternative to the Democratic plan that, alas, also included an insurance mandate. Never mind that a Republican president proposed the bailout, or that many Republicans and free marketers felt TARP was crucial to keep the economy from capsizing. For those who have forgotten, the point was to prop up the credit system to keep enough money flowing so that the “free market” didn’t collapse entirely. What was the alternative? What might have happened without TARP? As Mitt Romney, who supported TARP, has said, “We were on a precipice. ... Now we can sit back and say, ‘Oh, it wasn’t so scary.’ Well, frankly, it was a very scary time for a lot of people. And that’s something which was resolved.” Tea partiers mostly upset about subsequent spending have cast a wide net and any incumbent is liable to be snared — even the good ones, such as Bennett, who is widely respected in Washington and has been endorsed by establishment Republicans Newt, Mitt & Karl (Gingrich, Romney and Rove). Then again, being an establishment favorite in an antiWashington environment may be as disadvantageous as having an Ivy League degree. Those out-of-touch elites, you know. But in their rush to banish all but the purest fiscal conservatives, tea partiers risk losing some of their strongest voices and diminishing their power in an arena where relationships matter. Bennett, for example, worked with Democrat Ron Wyden to co-sponsor his health care proposal. What non-ideologues may see as cooperation, however, is viewed by true believers as weakness. Any attempt at compromise is viewed as surrendering principle. Under the new order, a Good Conservative wouldn’t cross the aisle to perform a Heimlich Maneuver. The long-promised purge is on, in other words, and anyone fantasizing about bipartisanship can choke on that hope. If Obamaphiles have been sipping Kool-Aid, Bennett’s primary challengers have been steeping in the bitter tea of an angry electorate. Indeed, more than two-thirds of delegates to the upcoming Utah Republican convention consider themselves to be tea party supporters. Much the same is happening in other states. In Arizona, uber-veteran John McCain, whose American Conservative Union rating last year was only 63, is fighting for the Senate seat he has held for more than 23 years against tea party favorite J.D. Hayworth. In Indiana, Rep. Mark Souder was pummeled by car dealer-challenger Bob Thomas for his vote on TARP. In Florida, Marco Rubio has the tea winds at his back for the U.S. Senate nomination, which forced Gov. Charlie Crist to declare himself an independent. Funny about that TARP vote, though, reminiscent as it is of the Iraq War vote that Barack Obama ran against but, not yet having been elected to the U.S. Senate, wasn’t called upon to cast. Would all those running against TARP now have voted against it had they been in Washington with the full weight of economic collapse on their shoulders?

The family had set its roots in a small home they didnâ€™t own. When the property changed ownership hands, the new landlord wanted Thelma and her children off the property.

home, removing the window from her sonâ€™s room and leaving it open to the elements. One court battle later, Thelma, who had been promised residence by the previous owner, won a crucial victory. Her tormenter was ordered to stay off the property. Thelma, a woman of deep Christian faith, attributes it to God, along with a helping financial hand from the U.S. government. The years passed and the Wilsons made it through. Today, sheâ€™s thin and is recovering from a broken shoulder suffered in a recent fall, but LeRoy remembers his mother as a dedicated hard worker. He remembers picking cotton along with
his mother until their fingers were sore. And when LeRoyâ€™s father returned from Germany, the family reinvested in agriculture, growing cotton, corn and tobacco. The years have come and gone. Life has changed, but LeRoy still talks about those years when the Wilsons were on their own. Those years when women, many of them mothers, absorbed the holes in the American workforce as soldiers left for Europe and the Pacific. It was no small feat, he says. Todayâ€™s the day to thank her then. â€œShe was pretty busy,â€? he says. â€œYou take four and five â€˜youngunsâ€™ like that and try to raise them.â€?

KIM PRITT It is hard to pick a single best memory and I am blessed to be able to continue making memories (my mother, Marilyn Wright, is 73 and lives in Albion, N.Y.). Mosty recently, the best memory is a cruise we took together just last week. The best childhood memories were our road trips to Atlantic City before it became a gambling mecca. Inexpensive hotel rooms, cheap food on sticks along the Boardwalk, and hours getting brown on the beach. The overall best memory is that we always end up laughing together â€” hysterically, canâ€™t-breathetype laughing. I canâ€™t wait to find out what memory we will make next.

One of the constants has been the undying encouragement that my mom has given me in every stage of my life. When I was a child, when I would say â€œI canâ€™t,â€? she would say, â€œTry again, yes you canâ€?. On May 11, 2008, my husband and I were blessed with a child of our own. During this time my mom encouraged me to be â€œmy own kind of mom.â€? She encouraged me not to follow societyâ€™s ideals of raising children but to do what felt right for my little family. Now that I am a mother, I know how hard it is to encourage your children to be independent when all you want to do is freeze time to keep them small and under your wing. Because of my mom and these wonderful memories, I know that my job as a mom is to prepare my children for life without me. One day I will not be there to hold their hand and wipe their tears and I want them to be able to function without me. Because of my mom I have the confidence to let my children try new things and walk ahead of me at times.
Just one of my favorite mom memories â€” We had a swimming pool in our back yard while growing up. Annie Laurie Pomeranz always told us we couldnâ€™t swim in our street clothes (had to have proper swimsuits on). One hot, steamy summer day, we had been working in the yard for several hours. Suddenly she put down her rake and started walking towards the pool. We asked what she was doing. She said, â€œgoing swimmingâ€? and proceeded to dive headfirst, shirt, shorts, shoes and all, into the deep end of the pool. That was the end of that rule.

Mother of missing woman waits for word By NICOLE NORFLEET Associated Press Writer
TARBORO â€” For more than a year, Juray Tucker has worn a yellow ribbon on her nursing scrubs. A flier with a photograph of her missing daughter is taped to her car window. Every few hours, Tuckerâ€™s husband checks their home phone for a message, still hoping she hasnâ€™t fallen victim to a possible serial killer. â€œI got to be realistic â€” whenever the phone rings,â€? Tucker, a 59-yearold nursing assistant, said as she paused and shed tears in the living room of her mobile home. â€œItâ€™s always there. But I still hope and pray that sheâ€™s alive.â€? Since 2006, nine African-American women have disappeared near the small central North Carolina city of Rocky Mount. Seven bodies were found along rural roads or in woods outside town, most so decomposed that investigators couldnâ€™t tell how they died. At least one of the women was strangled, and all the deaths have been classified as homicides. Police say they have a suspect in five of the deaths in custody and talk of a possible serial killer. Yet Tuckerâ€™s daughter is one of two women who have not been found. For Tucker, this is a time of anguish and waiting that tests her faith and leads her to question her parenting. â€œWhen Iâ€™m alone I always think, â€™Lord, did I do everything that I could do? Have I done everything that I could do when it

Beverly Perdue sent the National Guard last month to comb around Rocky Mount. Tuckerâ€™s daughter â€” Yolanda Renee Lancaster, a 37-year-old mother of two â€” wasnâ€™t found, and her mother says that gives her a glimmer of hope even as she agonizes over her disappearance. She now questions decisions she made raising Yolanda when she was young: boys could not visit the house unsupervised. Her daughter wasnâ€™t allowed to go out to the movies at night. Perhaps she was too strict â€” maybe her rules pushed Yolanda into taking needless risks, Tucker wondered as she gazed from the living room of her home that houses her grandsonâ€™s bed and family pictures. Like other victims, Lancaster had a history of alcohol and drug abuse, habits that Tucker said her daughter developed after she began sneaking out of the house in high school.
â€œAfter you do everything that you can do to raise them the right way, when they grow up you got no more say. They choose their own way,â€? Tucker said. Lancaster disappeared in February 2009 after an argument with her boyfriend, said Tucker, noting the spats were common. But after a few weeks, she said she became worried. Normally, Lancaster would at least call to check on her two young children, whom Tucker has raised since they were infants. The 11-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy used to ask about their mother. Now the questions have ceased. â€œItâ€™s hard to explain why sheâ€™s missing because I donâ€™t know why sheâ€™s missing or why did she just up and leave and didnâ€™t contact them,â€? Tucker said. For Jackie Wiggins, the mother of a woman whose body was found in 2007, the discovery has led to the desire for another answer. â€œThe fact that she was found and identified is some form of closure but

to not know who actually would do such a thing is just as hurtful,â€? she said. In September, authorities arrested Antwan Maurice Pittman and charged him with the first-degree murder of 28-year-old Taraha Shenice Nicholson. Police have said Pittman, a 31-year-old registered sex offender, is a suspect in the deaths of four of the women whose bodies were found, including Wigginsâ€™ daughter. Activists in the community believe that three other slay victims are linked to the cases of nine discovered and missing women. While police are checking into those three other cases, they are not certain they all are connected. Pittmanâ€™s attorney did not immediately return messages left seeking comment. Pittmanâ€™s trial was supposed to have begun Monday, but has been indefinitely postponed by a judge at the request of District Attorney Robert Evans. Both the prosecution and the defense said they needed more time to review evidence. Rocky Mount police Chief John Manley said police periodically meet with families to give them updates. While there are no immediate plans for another large-scale search, Manley said he doesnâ€™t rule one out. Edgecombe County Sheriff James Knight said an investigation continues. â€œThereâ€™s not a week that goes by that we are not working on it,â€? he said.
Military officials say NC-based Marine dies
Public employee pension information kept secret
CAMP LEJEUNE (AP) â€” Military officials say a North Carolina-based Marine has been killed in Afghanistan. The Defense Department said Saturday that 21-yearold Lance Cpl. Richard Penny of Fayetteville, Ark., died May 6 while supporting combat operations in Helmand province. A news release from Camp Lejeune said Penny was a machine gunner assigned to 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, Regimental Combat Team 2, I Marine Expeditionary Force Forward. He joined the Marine Corps in February 2009. He deployed to Afghanistan in March 2010 and was promoted to the rank of lance corporal last month.
RALEIGH (AP) â€” State records show that more than 260 former public employees in North Carolina receive annual payment of $100,000 or more but no one can find out how they earned those pensions. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Saturday that state Treasurer Janet Cowell has refused to release job information for those and 187,000 other retirees and would not say how long they worked in public jobs. Cowell says the information was made secret by an amendment to the stateâ€™s personnel law three years ago. But the sponsor of that law said he never intended to shield the information the treasurer is withholding.
Tribe meets about deal with gaming consultant PEMBROKE (AP) â€” Officials of a North Carolina Indian tribe are defending a closed meeting to discuss details of a deal with a gaming consultant that leaders hope will help the tribe earn federal recognition. The Fayetteville Observer reported Saturday that the Lumbee tribal counsel invited the entire tribe to Friday nightâ€™s meeting at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. At least one tribe member who opposes the agreement with the Las Vegas consultant said closing the meeting was unfair. Tribe spokesman Alex Baker defended the closed meeting, saying it was a family issue.
State Capitol staff offers free tour of statues RALEIGH (AP) â€” Visitors to the State Capitol can take advantage of a free walking tour of the monuments that honor various North Carolinians. The hourlong walking tour begins at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the George Washington statue on the south plaza in Raleigh. It will include information about the artists, symbolism and history of the public monuments, the first of which was unveiled in 1857 and the last of which was dedicated in 1990. The statues honor North Carolina veterans, statesmen and others. Capital education coordinator Terra Schramm says the statues tell visitors what their forebearers thought was important and provide a glimpse into the social and political atmosphere at the time.

Blowout preventers known to fail
HOUSTON (AP) â€” Cutoff valves like the one that failed to stop the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster have repeatedly broken down at other wells in the years since federal regulators weakened testing requirements, according to an Associated Press investigation. These steel monsters known as blowout preventers or BOPs â€” sometimes as big as a double-decker bus and weighing up to 640,000 pounds â€” guard the mouth of wells. They act as the last defense to choke off unintended releases, slamming a gushing pipe with up to 1 million pounds of force. While the precise causes of the April 20 explosion and spill remain unknown, investigators are focusing on the blowout preventer on the Deepwater Horizon rig operated by BP PLC as one likely contributor. To hear some industry officials talk, these devices are virtually foolproof. But a detailed AP review shows that reliability questions have long shadowed blowout preventers: â€” Accident reports from the U.S. Minerals Management Service, a branch of the Interior Department, show that the devices have failed or otherwise played a role in at least 14 accidents,
This undated photo provided by the US Coast Guard shows the arm of a robot submarine attempting to activate a shutoff device known as a blowout preventer (BOP) to close off the flow of oil at the Deepwater Horizon well head. mostly since 2005. â€” Government and industry reports have raised questions about the reliability of blowout preventers for more than a decade. A 2003 report by Transocean, the owner of the destroyed rig, said: â€œFloating drilling rig downtime due to poor BOP reliability is a common and very costly issue confronting all offshore drilling contractors.â€? â€” Lawsuits have fingered these valves as a factor in previous blowouts. It is unclear why the blowout valves on the Deepwater Horizon didnâ€™t stop the April 20 blast that killed 11 workers and has
sent millions of gallons of oil spewing into Gulf. Interviews with rig workers conducted as part of BPâ€™s internal investigation into the explosion indicate that a methane gas bubble escaped from the well and expanded quickly as it shot up the drill column, a series of events that included the failure of the blowout preventer and explosion of the rig. Since then, the minerals agency has been inspecting offshore rigs and platforms to verify testing of these valves and check emergency exercises. On Friday, a senior agency official told the AP that regulators had been comfortable that the
valves were reliable â€” until the blowout. â€œBased on the record, we have felt that these were performing the job they were supposed to perform,â€? Deputy Director Walter Cruickshank said. â€œThis incident is going to make us re-examine that assumption.â€? He said new procedures and rules may be needed, including certifying blowout preventers by an independent group of experts. He also said the agency may revise its peeled-back testing requirement of 1998, when it replaced a weekly regimen with biweekly pressure tests. A string of congressional hearings are planned to consider the reliability of BOPs. â€œThe safety valve is not so safe,â€? said U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash. She said industry officials knew this kind of part sometimes fails but acted as if it couldnâ€™t. The House Natural Resources Committee has formally asked the Interior Department to produce various records related to blowout preventers. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., told the AP the announcement by MMS officials to re-examine the reliability of blowout preventers may not be enough.

Coast Guard: tar balls wash up on Ala. island
volley of gunshots. Four Kent State students were killed and nine were wounded.
ON THE GULF OF MEXICO (AP) â€” A Coast Guard official says tar balls that are believed to be from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill are washing up on an Alabama island. Coast Guard chief warrant officer Adam Wine said about a half dozen tar balls had been collected by Saturday afternoon at Dauphin Island. He says the substance needs to be tested, but officials think it came from the oil spill. The barrier island is at the mouth of Mobile Bay and about three miles from the coast. Word of tar balls washing ashore came as a BP PLC official said that icelike crystals were causing problems with an oil containment box that had been placed over the massive leak about 50 miles from the Louisiana coast. BP chief operating officer Doug Suttles says it will probably take the next two days to study the problem.
Carnival shooting leaves gunman, victim injured
Experts re-examine audio from Kent State shootings CLEVELAND (AP) â€” A new analysis of a 40-year-old audio recording reveals that someone ordered National Guard troops to prepare to fire on students during a deadly Vietnam War protest at Kent State University in 1970, two forensics experts said. The recording was enhanced and evaluated by New Jersey-based audio experts Stuart Allen and Tom Owen at the request of The Plain Dealer newspaper. Both concluded that they hear someone shout, â€œGuard!â€? Seconds later, a voice yells, â€œAll right, prepare to fire!â€? â€œGet down!â€? someone shouts, presumably in the crowd. A voice then says, â€œGuard!...â€? followed two seconds later by a booming
BLOOMFIELD, N.J. (AP) â€” A gunman opened fire at a crowded carnival in northern New Jersey and wounded a man before being shot and wounded by a police officer. It wasnâ€™t clear why the gunman fired several rounds into the crowd of about 1,500 people in Bloomfield on Friday night, and his name was not disclosed. Authorities said the manâ€™s handgun was recovered at the scene, and heâ€™s expected to face aggravated assault and weapons charges. It was not known if the gunman was targeting a specific person or group.
Napolitano: Tenn. flood victims should seek help NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) â€” Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano toured Tennesseeâ€™s flood zone Saturday morning, urging those affected to seek help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Napolitano says more than $4.1 million in individual assistance has been approved already with 16,000 applications made and 695 inspections done by early Saturday morning. FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate and Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen joined Napolitano on the tour of Nashville, where the damage has been estimated to be at least $1.5 billion after record rains. Two more bodies of storm victims have been found, bringing the death toll from last weekendâ€™s string thunderstorms to 33 in Tennessee, Kentucky and Mississippi.

NATION BRIEFS Sen. Bennett survives 1st round of Utah GOP vote
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) â€” Three-term Republican U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett advanced to a second round of balloting at the Utah GOP state convention Saturday, but the embattled senatorâ€™s political career remained in danger of ending later in the day. Bennett came in third out of eight candidates in the first round of balloting of the roughly 3,500 delegates, trailing attorney Mike Lee and businessman Tim Bridgewater. Bennett got 885 votes, behind Lee and Bridgewater, who had 982 votes and 917 votes respectively. A second round of balloting to narrow the field to two candidates began Saturday afternoon after each of the three remaining candidates made a one-minute speech. Delegates are free to change who they vote for in each round as the field is reduced to two candidates for the final round. If neither of the final two gets 60 percent of the vote, they will face off in a June 22 primary.
Obama says health care law already helps millions
WASHINGTON (AP) â€” The new health care law already is helping millions of people through tax breaks for small businesses and assistance for families with young adults, President Barack Obama said Saturday. In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama promoted his top domestic priority, which passed Congress with no Republican votes and continues to stir strong emotions nationwide. He acknowledged that many
provisions will not take effect for years. But he said others are doing some families good now. Some 4 million smallbusiness owners and organizations have been told of a possible health care tax cut this year, Obama said. On June 15, some older people with high prescription drug costs will receive $250 to help fill a gap in Medicareâ€™s pharmaceutical benefits. â€œAlready we are seeing a health care system that holds insurance companies more accountable and gives consumers more control,â€? the president said. Obama said Anthem Blue Cross dropped a proposed 39 percent premium increase on Californians after his administration demanded an explanation.
GOP divided on gov race as polls favor Democrat NEW YORK (AP) â€” If the national political climate this year is supposed to favor Republicans, participants in the New York governorâ€™s race apparently havenâ€™t gotten the memo yet. Polls show Democrat Andrew Cuomo overwhelmingly favored at the start of the race to replace departing Gov. David Paterson, even though the state attorney general hasnâ€™t even announced plans to run. Three Republicans vying to challenge him are engaged in a battle heavy on back room drama â€” even as their candidacies barely register with voters. New York isnâ€™t immune to the prevailing political environment; voters are freighted with some of the highest taxes in the country, and frustration with state leaders in Albany runs high.

Ferry slams into dock; dozens hurt NEW YORK (AP) â€” A Staten Island ferry with a history of accidents malfunctioned as it approached its terminal Saturday and smashed into a pier with a jolt that tossed passengers to the deck and hurt as many as 37 people. The accident happened at around 9:20 a.m. as the Andrew J. Barberi arrived at the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island, carrying 252 passengers and 18 crew. Passenger Jason Watler, 30, of St. George, said he became alarmed when the ferry approached the shore faster than usual and ran toward the back of the boat. â€œIt was not slowing down,â€? he said. â€œHe was going too fast.â€? Then, he heard a â€œa real big boom.â€? â€œI stumbled a little bit,â€? he said. â€œPeople were screaming. People were crying.â€? The accident appeared to be the result of a mechanical failure, New York City Department of Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan said. The ferryâ€™s throttle failed to engage as it prepared to dock, she said, meaning the crew was unable to use the engines to apply reverse thrust and

The cause of the malfunction is still unknown, she said. The ferry was moving at about 5 knots, or 5.8 miles per hour, when it hit. Coast Guard officials said the ferry suffered serious damage to its ramps and gouges in the decks above the waterline. Ramps on the pier were also damaged. The Fire Department said 17 passengers were initially taken by ambu-
lance to hospitals, but that none had life-threatening injuries. Later, they said 33 had been checked out at hospitals, after first being treated at the scene. One person complained of chest pains. Two police officers providing ferry security were among the injured, officials said, but no crew members were hurt. The Andrew Barberi was also involved in a 2003 wreck that killed 11 people.
That accident occurred when the pilot, suffering from extreme fatigue and on painkillers, passed out at the wheel and the boat hit the terminal in St. George at full speed. The ferry returned to service after a multimillion-dollar rehabilitation. The pilot pleaded guilty to negligent manslaughter and lying to investigators. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison. The city ferry director was sentenced to a year in prison after pleading guilty to negligent manslaughter and admitting he failed to implement or enforce a rule requiring two pilots during docking. On July 1, 2009, a different ferry lost power and slammed into a pier at the St. George terminal, causing more than a dozen minor injuries among passengers. That accident was blamed on the failure of a transformer, which regulates power to the main propulsion engine.

TIMES SQUARE BOMBING
Plot may have cost as little as $7K Many pieces
NEW YORK (AP) — Terror can come cheap. Confessed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad appears to have financed his failed plot with a wad of $100 bills, but the amount of money needed to execute the scheme was fairly modest. There was his plane ticket to the U.S. from Pakistan, as well as a return flight to the United Arab Emirates, at a cost of less than $800 each way. Add to that his living expenses, including three months rent for a Connecticut apartment at a little less than $1,200 per month. His car bomb was relatively cheap, too: $1,300 for a rusting 1993 Nissan Pathfinder and the cost of some firecrackers and tanks of gasoline and propane. Shahzad, who seemed to have paid cash for many and maybe all of his purchases, bought himself a Kel-Tec rifle, which sells for around $400, but skimped on luxuries. The 30-year-old slept on an air mattress in a sparsely furnished apartment, and, according to one account, tried to get a job at a jewelry store where he had worked as a young college student. Shahzad’s finances are
Officers from the New York Police Department’s Emergency Service Unit make a routine appearance in the financial district in New York on Friday. under scrutiny, as authorities try to learn whether he got cash from a terror group. A law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Thursday that investigators had identified and were looking for a person who helped courier money to Shahzad from an overseas source. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the investigation. Matthew Levitt, a former U.S. Treasury intelligence official, now a senior fellow at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said the fact that Shahzad paid for the car and plane ticket in cash, sometimes using
$100 bills, was a “red flag.” The money trail, he said, may provide valuable clues as to whether Shahzad had any help. Yet the bombing plan, as described by authorities, appears to have been simple enough that even a single person or a small group with limited means could stage this sort of attack. Shahzad’s rent from mid-February to the start of May, his two airline tickets, gun and vehicle purchases appear to total less than $7,000. The actual bomb components — fertilizer, propane tanks, and a few boxes of cheap firecrackers — were even cheaper, maybe a few hundred dollars at
most. “You don’t need to have a lot of money to put together a bomb. It’s all relative to what you want to make,” said Leo W. West, a retired FBI explosives expert. He noted that a more sophisticated device containing exotic chemicals would have been more expensive. Prosecutors said that on May 1, Shahzad tried to detonate an SUV filled with flammable materials in Times Square. The vehicle smoldered, but didn’t explode. He was arrested after investigators traced him through the SUV’s previous owner. Shahzad is in federal custody. Authorities said he is coopering with investigators. He has yet to be arraigned. The whereabouts of his wife and children has not been made public, but they are believed to be living overseas. Born in Pakistan, Shahzad spent more than a decade in the U.S., going to school, working and starting a family, before moving back to Pakistan last spring. Shahzad has been characterized as being in money trouble when he left the U.S., but records and interviews suggest he still had resources.

still missing in plot puzzle NEW YORK (AP) — The Pakistani-American who police say admitted to igniting a failed car bomb in busy Times Square has made no court appearance since his arrest early this week and, though he is cooperating, authorities remain unsure he was acting alone. New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly declined Friday to discuss what Faisal Shahzad is telling investigators, including what his motives were. He was arrested Monday aboard a Dubai-bound plane two days after the nighttime bomb scare cleared several blocks of the bustling district. “This individual is cooperating. In these types of situations, you let the information flow, so to speak,” Kelly said. Police have surveillance images of Shahzad around Times Square and video that shows his car traveling to the spot where they say he left a smoking sport utility vehicle May 1 rigged with a gasoline-and-propane bomb. Law enforcement officials say they are trying to find links between the Bridgeport, Conn., man

and possible financing sources, including the Pakistani Taliban, which has both claimed responsibility for and denied roles in the botched bombing. A money courier was being sought who may have funneled cash to the 30-year-old budget analyst, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the investigation. Gen. David Petraeus, head of U.S. Central Command, said Friday the Times Square suspect had apparently operated as a “lone wolf” who did not work with other terrorists. Petraeus said in a statement to the AP that the alleged perpetrator was inspired by militants in Pakistan but didn’t necessarily have direct contact with them. Investigators believe Shahzad had some bomb-making training in Pakistan as he claimed to investigators, and his training may have been sponsored in part by the Pakistani Taliban, a senior military official told the AP. But it was not clear where the training took place nor the quality of it, the official told the AP on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is continuing. Shahzad has told investigators that he trained in the lawless tribal areas of Waziristan, where both al-Qaida and the Pakistani Taliban operate, and that he came up with the attack plan himself. Investigators have not been able to establish whether Shahzad was recruited for the Times Square operation by the Pakistani Taliban or another militant group — or whether Shahzad came up with the attack plan himself, the official said. American officials have been quoted as saying they believe the Pakistani Taliban, which has no history of attacks on U.S. soil, had a role in the Times Square plot, either in funding or motivating and training. Half a world away Friday, police cleared the streets around Times Square and called in the bomb squad to dismantle what turned out to be a cooler full of water bottles. Earlier in the day, police were called in to check a suspicious package that turned out to be someone’s lunch. Since the bomb scare in the heart of the city, false-alarm calls are up dramatically, nerves are jangled, and media and law enforcement are rushing to the scenes to make sure the reports aren’t something bigger. More than 600 calls came in since the attempted car bombing a week ago — about 30 percent higher than normal, police said. Times Square vendor Walter “Candyman” Wells said the constant scares aroused more suspicion. “I think they’re testing us, whoever is doing this,” Wells said, sitting on a stool near his table of T-shirts. “They’re playing chess with us right now, but they ain’t gonna win. ‘Cause we’re the Bobby Fischers.”

Opry stage sat under 2 feet of water
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) â€” The iconic Grand Ole Opry House stage sat under 2 feet of water at the peak of deadly floods that ravaged Tennessee last weekend, but there was finally a bit of good news for residents facing a relentless grind of death and destruction. Even as rising water lapped around their knees, a group of 10 to 15 workers moved some of the hallâ€™s most precious music memorabilia out of harmâ€™s way and Opry officials said Friday they are optimistic they can restore much of what has been damaged. â€œIt breaks your heart, but itâ€™s our responsibility to be sure that that building comes back to life, and it will,â€? Opry president Steve Buchanan said. The outlook for other devastated areas of Tennessee, Mississippi and Kentucky looked more grim: The death toll climbed to 31 with the discovery of a missing kayakerâ€™s body in Kentucky. Twenty died in Tennessee alone. Mayor Karl Dean raised the damage estimate for Nashville alone to $1.5 billion Friday, with 17 percent of Davidson County still to be checked. Already officials know 9,300 properties have been damaged and almost 2,000 of those are residences. Dean said
The crowd applauds Marty Stuart, left, after he performed during The Grand Ole Opry at the War Memorial Auditorium Tuesday in Nashville, Tenn. the damage total will go up because it doesnâ€™t include damage to roads, bridges or the contents of the buildings. â€œWhile the numbers seem daunting, and they truly are large, Nashville is in the process of recovering,â€? Dean said. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano planned to tour the area Saturday. Sheâ€™ll find residents already repairing their homes and business owners pushing to re-open as the Federal Emergency Management Agency is handing out money. More than 12,000 Tennesseans had registered with FEMA for disaster assistance by midmorning Friday with 250 inspections complete, and the agency had already approved $1.5 million in individual assistance.
The Opry House faced one problem: Itâ€™s easy to put a value on a waterlogged couch, but how do you price Porter Wagonerâ€™s dressing room or the instruments in the Roy Acuff collection at the Opry House? Buchanan gave details Friday on how Opry employees whisked away instruments, tapes and other important pieces to safety Sunday night at the Opry House as water overran a nearby levee. He did not want to give details on specific pieces, but â€œa lot of very important piecesâ€? were moved. â€œThereâ€™s been moments we felt great â€” we got these items and they are safe and fine,â€? Buchanan said. â€œBut we will not feel a sense of relief until weâ€™ve been through this entire process.â€?
One special concern â€” the 6-foot circle of floorboards from the old Ryman Auditorium stage that was home to the Opry for so long â€” appears to be salvageable. â€œIt is in remarkably good condition,â€? Buchanan said. â€œWe will ultimately need to replace the stage. But we replaced the stage every few years, but not the circle. The circle will be back center stage very soon.â€? Gear that several musicians â€” from stars to session players â€” stored in lockers at the Opry House were inundated, though. Among the musicians who had valuables damaged was Little Jimmy Dickens, the 4-foot-11 comedic heart of the Opry cast. Gaylord Entertainment CEO Colin Reed said some of Dickensâ€™ suits were damaged. â€œWe hope they havenâ€™t shrunk,â€? Reed said to laughter from news conference attendees. â€œIâ€™m sorry for making light of this, but if we didnâ€™t we would be constantly moved to tears.â€? Reed said it would be months before the entire Gaylord Orpyland complex northeast of downtown is reopened. He told investors earlier in the day damage is likely to exceed the companyâ€™s $50 million insurance coverage.

Actress Lynn Redgrave is laid to rest in NY KENT, Conn. (AP) â€” Friends and family said final goodbyes to Lynn Redgrave on Saturday and laid the 67year-old actress to rest near her mother amid the rolling hills of upstate Redgrave New York. The star of â€œGeorgy Girlâ€? died Sunday at her home in Kent, Conn., surrounded by her children. She had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002. At a private funeral near her Connecticut home Saturday morning, pall bearers carried a basket-weave casket adorned with flowers through a light drizzle into the First Congregational Church of Kent. Her older sister, Vanessa Redgrave, was among those attending, along with niece Joely Richardson, and Liam Neeson, widower of her niece Natasha Richardson.

â€˜Iron Man 2â€™ puts pedal to the metal with $52.4M LOS ANGELES (AP) â€” Robert Downey Jr. is packing a bigger box-office punch with his second â€œIron Manâ€? movie. â€œIron Man 2â€? took in $52.4 million domestically on its opening day Friday. Thatâ€™s nearly a 50 percent increase over the $35.2 million first day of the original â€œIron Manâ€? two years ago. That puts the Paramount release based on the Marvel Comics superhero on track for a debut weekend of $125 million to $135 million, which would make it the fifth-biggest opening weekend on the box-office charts. The first â€œIron Manâ€? movie had a $98.6 million debut weekend. â€œIron Man 2â€? has taken in nearly $150 million overseas since it debuted in many international markets last week. Worldwide, the movie has climbed to a $200 million total.
Donâ€™t trust extradition filing, Polanski argues LOS ANGELES (AP) â€” Roman Polanskiâ€™s attorneys argued in court filings Friday that the Swiss government should not automatically assume an extradition request by Los Angeles prosecutors is accurate. The statement is in response to a comment by a Swiss justice official, who told The Associated Press last month that officials there assume facts in an extradition request are correct. The official said the justice ministry was not interested in the transcripts of testimony offered in secret earlier this year by the former prosecutor who handled Polanskiâ€™s case. Polanskiâ€™s attorneys contend the transcripts will show the extradition papers contain information prosecutors know is â€œfalse and materially incomplete.â€? The filing also argues that prosecutors want the Swiss to only consider whatâ€™s included in official court records and ignore other evidence that proves misconduct in the case. Los Angeles County District Attorneyâ€™s spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons says the office wonâ€™t comment, but will argue their position during a hearing Monday.

Obama: We must fight terror together
Pres. Jimmy Carter hits the campaign trail with grandson
WASHINGTON (AP) â€” President Barack Obama says he wants greater cooperation between Russia and the United States on economic, security and anti-terrorism matters. Obama told a Russian television station that no single country can defeat terrorists who have attacked targets throughout the world. He said he looks forward to â€œincreasing cooperation between the United States and Russiaâ€? on fighting terrorism. Obama also said he and Russian President Dmitry
Medvedev have discussed how the two former rivals can â€œramp up our commercial, our trade, our economic ties.â€? â€œHow can we help to promote the innovation agenda in Russia?â€? Obama said in the interview, which was conducted Thursday in the White House. The transcript was released Saturday. â€œWhat are we doing around high-tech industries that can produce jobs and raise standards of livings for both the Russian people and the United States?â€? he said. â€œThatâ€™s an
area where I think youâ€™re going to see a lot of work and a lot of cooperation.â€? Obama said he hopes Medvedev will visit hightech centers such as Silicon Valley when he travels to the United States in late June. Obama gingerly dealt with the issue of an expanded NATO, a sore subject with Russia as former Soviet states join or seek to join the western alliance. He said is seriously looking at Medvedevâ€™s ideas â€œabout a new security architecture in Europe.â€?
ATLANTA (AP) â€” Most candidates for the state Legislature would love to campaign door-to-door with a former president, but Jason Carter wanted to keep his famous grandfather away for a while. The grandson of Jimmy Carter wanted to do it on his own, without relying on his famous family name, even though grandma and grandpa have been asking for months to get out on the trail with him. The younger Carter finally relented with a special election for a vacant state Senate seat just days away â€” and there were Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter, handing out fliers and shaking hands Saturday with surprised residents in a tree-lined Atlanta neighborhood. â€œOh my gosh, President Carter I canâ€™t believe youâ€™re on my front lawn,â€? Christine Marsteller said as Jimmy Carter slowly made his way up to her yard sale. Yes, Marsteller said, ab-

he could do the hard work on his own. After all, with the Carter name comes high expectations for success. â€œI canâ€™t be trading on my family name,â€? the 34year-old lawyer said in an interview with The Associated Press. â€œThis is not a campaign of entitlement. Weâ€™ve got to earn this on our own.â€? Still, in a special election where turnout will be key, he is rolling out the political royalty to rally voters. He is facing a Democrat, a Libertarian and an independent. If he wins, Carter would become the first in his family to be elected to political office since his grandfather won the presidency in 1976. Jimmy Carter served two terms in the Georgia Senate before becoming the stateâ€™s governor in 1971. The heavily Democratic district covers portions of Atlanta and Decatur in DeKalb County and has a large Jewish population, which has resurrected some touchy questions about Jimmy Carterâ€™s strained relationship with the community.

NCHSAA RULE CHANGES
KNIGHT TELLS GRADS PREPARATION IS KEY ANGOLA, Ind. (AP) — Former Indiana basketball coach Bob Knight warned graduates at Trine University that they’ll likely have some bosses who will be as difficult to work for as he was to play for. “I was not an easy coach to play for. That was never my intent,” he said during his 35-minute commencement address. “My intent was to see that the guys who played for me went away from basketball with a better opportunity to succeed in life than anyone anywhere could have.” Knight has made only a handful of public appearances in Indiana since he was fired as the Hoosiers’ coach in 2000 after a freshman accused him of grabbing him. The former coach wore a black robe to accept an honorary public service degree in recognition of his commitment to young people, but he took it off for the speech, saying he told the school president he always works in sweaters. “Dick Vitale wears a coat, a tie and he talks too much. I limit what I have to say and wear a sweater,” he joked.
NCAA KENTUCKY’S ORTON, BLEDSOE STAY IN DRAFT
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky freshmen Eric Bledsoe and Daniel Orton are choosing to remain in the NBA Draft. Orton and Bledsoe announced Saturday they will not return to school for their sophomore seasons. They’ll join fellow underclassmen John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins and Patrick Patterson in the draft. Bledsoe averaged 11.9 points in the backcourt alongside Wall, the Southeastern Conference Player of the Year. Orton spent most of the season as a reserve center behind Cousins. He averaged 3.4 points and 3.3 rebounds and was second on the team with 53 blocks. They are projected to go in the mid-to-late first round.

Changes coming for prep football By RYAN SARDA firstname.lastname@example.org
SANFORD — The North Carolina High School Athletic Association Board of Directors has voted to make some changes to the high school football season. The biggest and perhaps most important change will begin in 2011 when the season will be shortened to 11 weeks. Currently, teams are scheduled to play 11 games in a 12-week span. Under the new NCHSAA rules, teams can still play 11 games, including an endowment game, but there will be no off weeks. The changes were made to prevent an overlap between football and basketball
seasons. Football teams that advance deep into their respective state tournaments could cause scheduling rifts for the basketball teams, which might have athletes on both teams. In some Womack instances, conference play begins before the football season is completely done. “If we make a deep run in the playoffs, we’ll still have guys playing football on the basketball team,” said Lee County Athletic Director Steve Womack. “So this kind of
See Rules, Page 6B
New Rules A number of items were discussed by the NCHSAA. A few: ■ To play 11 regular-season football games in 11 weeks (including the Endowment game, which is optional), rather than the current 11 games in 12week format, starting with 2011-12 academic year. ■ Reducing length of winter sport season by one week for competition, but still starting winter sports season practice on Nov. 1, starting in 2010-11 ■ To add to the football seeding process the “pod” format, which means schools would be grouped into four different sections (East, Mideast, Midwest, West), effective with 2010-11 academic year
THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP — NBC, 2 P.M. NFL SAINTS’ PAYTON DEFLECTS LAWSUIT QUESTIONS
METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Saints coach Sean Payton says this weekend’s rookie camp is the wrong time to address accusations that the club covered up prescription drug thefts and abuse at team headquarters. Payton says he cannot discuss the matter while a civil lawsuit filed by former team security director Geoffrey Santini is pending. The suit claims linebackers coach Joe Vitt was caught on video stealing Vicodin from the team’s drug locker and that the Saints tried to keep it quiet. It also claims Payton was allowed to take excessive amounts of Vicodin from team supplies.

Lee Westwood, of England, looks as his ball just misses the cup on the third hole during the third round of The Players Championship golf tournament on Saturday in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
My first trophy was once my mother’s
Westwood leads, Lefty charges By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — One round away from one of the biggest wins of his career, Lee Westwood of England knows what to expect on the final day of The Players Championship. Not only because of his 16
years and his 30 victories worldwide, or his 54-hole lead last month at the Masters. Saturday on the TPC Sawgrass was enough of a reminder. Westwood watched a twoshot lead turn into a two-shot deficit. Over the final hour, Robert Allenby picked up three shots on the last three holes,
while Heath Slocum dropped four shots on the last six holes. The day ended with Westwood hitting a daring shot with a 6-iron through a gap in the trees for a par on the 18th hole for a 2-under 70 to finish the third round with a one-shot

nce upon a time, my mom was a bowler. I have no recollection of her time at the lanes. Apparently it came either before I showed up, or early in my development in this thing called life. I have no photographic evidence of such a thing — the Mother Bowler thing, I mean; there’s plenty of evidence of my infantile moments, none of which any of you will see anytime soon — but I know it happened. As a young only child, I found

Baseball Teixeira goes deep thrice for Yanks
BOSTON (AP) â€” Mark Teixeira joined Lou Gehrig as the only Yankees to hit three home runs against the Boston Red Sox, and he and Francisco Cervelli drove in five runs each as New York clinched another series with a 14-3 win Saturday. The Yankees have won nine of their first 10 series of the season, a mark surpassed only twice in team history. They won 14 of their first 15 in 1928 and 11 of their first 12 in 1939. The three-game set began with a 10-3 win Friday night and ends Sunday night when unbeaten A.J. Burnett faces Bostonâ€™s Jon Lester. The Yankees still trail the Tampa Bay Rays by a half game in the AL East. Teixeira hit solo homers in the fifth and seventh then hit a two-run shot to left in the eighth off outfielder Jonathan Van Every.
Athletics 4, Rays 2 OAKLAND, Calif.(AP) â€” Ben Sheets finally pitched like an ace, Daric Barton drove in a pair of runs and the Oakland Athletics beat Tampa Bay 4-2 on Saturday to hand the Rays their second road loss of the season.
Orioles 7, Twins 3, 1st game MINNEAPOLIS (AP) â€” Nick Markakis drove in three of Baltimoreâ€™s five two-out runs off Francisco Liriano, and the Orioles beat the Minnesota Twins 7-3 in the first game of a split doubleheader. Justin Morneau hit his first Target Field homer after going deep six times on the road, a two-run shot that gave the Twins a first-inning lead against Jeremy Guthrie (1-4).

MLB BRIEFS Metsâ€™ Castillo leaves with bruised left foot
Atlanta Braves Eric Hinske swings through for a one-out double to right scoring Chipper Jones and Brian McCann in the sixth inning of a baseball game with the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday in Philadelphia.
Hinske carries Braves past Phillies PHILADELPHIA (AP) â€” Eric Hinske ignited a three-run rally in the sixth inning, and the Atlanta bullpen came through as the Braves snapped the Philadelphia Philliesâ€™ fourgame winning streak in a 4-1 victory Saturday Hinskeâ€™s one-out double to right after Chipper Jones and Brian McCann led off with singles knotted the score 1-1. Melky Cabrera followed with a single to left to give the Braves the lead, and Omar Infanteâ€™s sacrifice fly made it 3-1. The Braves added a run in the eighth on Troy Glausâ€™ RBI single, and Billy Wagner
pitched the ninth inning for his fourth save in five chances. Atlanta reliever Eric Oâ€™Flaherty (2-1) faced only one batter, retiring Ryan Howard on an inning-ending double-play in the fifth, to pick up the victory as gusty winds blew throughout Citizens Bank Park. Six relievers combined to hold the Phillies scoreless over 4 2-3 innings. Nationals 5, Marlins 4 WASHINGTON (AP) â€” Adam Dunn was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the eighth inning, allowing the go-ahead run to score and giving the
Washington Nationals a 5-4 victory over the Florida Marlins . Mets 5, Giants 4, 11 innings NEW YORK (AP) â€” Henry Blanco hit a leadoff homer in the 11th inning, New Yorkâ€™s second game-ending drive by a catcher in less than a day, and the Mets beat the San Francisco Giants 5-4 for their ninth straight home win. Blanco drove a 1-0 pitch from former Mets reliever Guillermo Mota (0-1) just over the wall in left for his first homer of the season. Rod Barajas connected in the ninth inning.

Mauer â€˜getting real closeâ€™ to returning to Twins MINNEAPOLIS (AP) â€” Minnesota star Joe Mauerâ€™s deeply bruised left heel is feeling much better. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said on Saturday that Mauer is â€œgetting real closeâ€? to returning to the lineup. Mauer took batting practice before the first game of a split doubleheader against Baltimore and jogged around the bases. He was set to test his foot by squatting in the catcherâ€™s position in the batting cage during the game, and Gardenhire didnâ€™t rule out using him to pinch hit this weekend.

Dodgersâ€™ Ramirez activated from DL LOS ANGELES (AP) â€” The Los Angeles Dodgers activated Manny Ramirez from the 15-day disabled list on Saturday after he missed 14 games because of a right calf strain. The Dodgers were 6-8 while Ramirez was on the DL, and also lost the two other games in which he did not play. Last year they went 29-21 during the 12-time All-Starâ€™s 50 game suspension for testing positive for a banned drug. Ramirez, who turns 38 on May 30, was injured while running out a single during a game at Cincinnati on April 22. He entered Saturday nightâ€™s contest against Colorado hitting .415 with two home runs and 12 RBIs. Ramirezâ€™s next homer will break a tie with Mike Schmidtâ€™s for 14th place on the career list. His 548th came on April 18 as a pinch-hitter. Ramirez got his 2,500th hit on April 10 and his 1,800th RBI two days before he went on the DL.

Our Vascular & Vein Care Team
NEW YORK (AP) â€” Second baseman Luis Castillo has left the New York Metsâ€™ game against the San Francisco Giants with a bruised left foot. Castillo went out to his position before the Giants batted in the eighth inning Saturday. Manager Jerry Manuel and a trainer then came out to check on him before the inning started, and Castillo was replaced by Alex Cora. Castillo singled in the seventh and was stranded at first. The Mets said Castillo had a bone bruise to his left foot and was day to day
Mauer did some running on a track at Target Field on Friday, when the game was postponed by rain. He hasnâ€™t played in a week. Shortstop J.J. Hardy wonâ€™t play this weekend. His left wrist is still sore, and Gardenhire said heâ€™s not ready to get on the field.

lead, same as he started. He has more company now â€” Masters champion Phil Mickelson included â€” but the course is as significant as the names behind him on the leaderboard. â€œThere was no real scope for thinking about anything else other than what I was doing,â€? Westwood said. â€œItâ€™s that kind of golf course. If you play well, birdies are available. If you donâ€™t hit good shots, they penalize you. Thatâ€™s what good golf courses do to you.â€? This day, there was a little of both. Mickelson suddenly was back in the picture, along with that No. 1 ranking, because of his 66 that put him five shots behind. Tiger Woods was not, courtesy of a bogey-bogey finish for a 71 that put him 10 shots behind.

Allenby was five shots behind when he walked off the 13th tee. He made up ground quickly with a 6-iron to about 12 feet on the par-5 16th for eagle, then a 12-foot birdie on the island-green 17th that curled into the side of the cup. He shot a 67 to get in the final group. â€œThatâ€™s the thing,â€? Allenby said. â€œYou donâ€™t know whatâ€™s going to happen out there. All you can do is just play your own golf. But I knew I had to push it a little bit just to try to get within reach. Obviously, the leaderboard changed a couple of times through the back nine. Luckily for me, I did well on the finishing holes.â€? Westwood was at 14-under 202. â€œThe golf course changed a lot. It got really firm this afternoon,â€? Westwood said. â€œI thought I played well â€” gave myself a lot of chances, missed a couple, but all in all, I was pleased with the way I played. I didnâ€™t make too many poor shots out there.â€?

avoids all that. You canâ€™t blame the basketball coaches for wanting to have all of their players for conference. Our first conference game in basketball this upcoming season is Nov. 30 and if we go deep into the playoffs in football, we might not have some players. I know (Lee County basketball coach Reggie) Peace will wish players like Israel Williams, Isiah Williams and Dequan Swann well in football, but heâ€™ll also love to have them available on the court. So, these new changes will be a way to keep that overlap from happening.â€? As far as scheduling is concerned, Womack and Lee County head coach Burton Cates both feel that the new rules could cause a headache because there will always be one team without a conference opponent to play on a given night. If the new rules went into effect this upcoming season, Womack would have to drop either nonconference opponent Western Harnett or Richmond County from the schedule. He then would have to

plenty of time to go through drawers of old dressers or plunge into the depths of dark closets in any room that wasnâ€™t my parentsâ€™ bedroom. My family moved around a lot when I was a kid, and so boxes of packed items sometimes stayed that way, left undeterred because they contained little of what might be considered useful. Tucked away in one of these forgotten zones was in fact the hard evidence of Momâ€™s time as a competitive bowler. Gleaming white bowling shoes â€” size 5 â€” side-by-side, with barely a blemish on them. The laces showed no signs of
find another nonconference opponent to play during the teamâ€™s scheduled bye week, which will be on Oct. 15 in the seventh week of the season. â€œIt doesnâ€™t make sense financially,â€? said Cates, who will be in his second year with the Yellow Jackets after two-plus decades at Eastern Randolph. â€œWeâ€™ve got to find a nonconference opponent to play that is also off that same night and is willing to play us. This could cause us to travel somewhere like Charlotte, Fayetteville or Wilmington just to play. Weâ€™d also have to give up Western Harnett or Richmond County and those are games that we want to play. With an odd number conference, itâ€™ll be a disadvantage in losing a big game off the schedule.â€? The Southern Lee Cavaliers went 0-11 in the first season under Eric Puryear. The Cavs, a young program trying to rebuild itself in the Cape Fear Valley Conference, played 11 games in 11 weeks and had their bye week in the final week of the season. Puryear says that having a bye week in the middle of the season wouldâ€™ve helped his young team in the long run. â€œWith as tough as our schedule was, we needed a bye week,â€? said Puryear. â€œWe were
wear or fraying, the aglets at the tips still firm. But the shoes werenâ€™t exactly interesting. Not to the 4- or 5-year-old me. I didnâ€™t have any clue really what they were beyond the fact that they were shoes. Certainly there was no consideration that they were some form of athletic footwear. White shoes. OK then. Down in the bottom of the box, though, was something sure to interest a kid like me. Tipped onto its side but sparkling from having seen light for the first time in God knows how long, was a gold trophy. A bowling trophy. Little boys want trophies. Lots of them. Where this notion comes from isnâ€™t exactly clear. Maybe we see it on TV or read about it in our first books. Maybe some of us

see an older siblingâ€™s shelf. All we know is that we want them. This trophy wasnâ€™t huge, maybe 5-to-7 inches tall. But it was solid. Metal. Not plastic. Definitely not plastic. And in the middle, up the shaft to the pedestal that held the miniature bowler frozen in midswing, it had some shiny blue metallic indentation. Cool. Very cool. I can remember showing the shoes and the trophy to my mom, hoping against hope that she would let me keep the trophy in my room. Iâ€™m not kidding â€” I can remember the nervous feeling rising in my chest as I raced into the living room to show her and ask her. Same nervous feeling I have now whenever I fear something. Of course, she let me keep the trophy. But not before taking both items into her hands, cackling that little giggle I can still hear,
very young and we were reeling by the end of the season and there was really nothing to stop the bleeding. Itâ€™s tough. We were pretty banged up by the end of the season, too, and a bye week couldâ€™ve given us an extra week off to recuperate and recover. It wouldâ€™ve also given us a chance to rest. With 11 games in 11 weeks, it might be tough for players to get back to 100 percent like they were at the beginning of the season.â€? Cates is on both sides when it comes to playing bye weeks. He feels that they can be helpful when it comes to healing injuries but hurtful because they can interrupt a rhythm. â€œWhen youâ€™re playing well and finally hitting your stride, I donâ€™t think you really need a bye week,â€? said Cates. â€œHowever, if youâ€™re struggling and youâ€™ve got a couple of players hurt, a bye week is extremely beneficial. Playing 11 games in 11 weeks doesnâ€™t bother us at all. Itâ€™s what weâ€™re going to have to do.â€? Northwood head coach and former athletic director Bill Hall has never been a big fan of bye weeks anyway. However, he expresses the same concern as Womack and Cates when it comes to finding an oppoand smiling to herself. She told me that they were from her short time spent in a bowling league in California. She probably told me more after that, but the words faded away around me as I held the trophy in my hands, knowing it was mine. I wish I couldâ€™ve seen her bowl. She wouldâ€™ve been in her early 20s, surrounded by my dad and friends of hers, probably having a couple of beers and joking about the gutter balls and random strikes. She wouldâ€™ve worn that crisp smile of hers I still see occasionally in my dreams â€” unless she had the ball in hand. Then she wouldâ€™ve had that look of hard determination I would see in later years whenever she addressed the ball on the golf course. The trophy stayed with me until I started to win a few of my own. I never had many â€” these were still the days before those plastic
nent that late in the season. The NCHSAA Board of Directors also voted to make changes to the format of the state playoffs. Like usual, each classification will still be subdivided (4-A, 4-AA, etc.) but each team will now be put into four regional pods to try and reduce the cost of travel. The regions will be east, mideast, west and midwest. The playoffs changes will go into effect in the 2010 football season. â€œThe NCHSAA, I think, is accomplishing what they want and thatâ€™s saving money,â€? said Hall. â€œIn this economy, everyoneâ€™s trying to save a penny. I can definitely see where the NCHSAA is coming from with playoffs and traveling and everything. We had a team from Elizabeth City play us in the first round of the playoffs this past season. Thatâ€™s about a 3-hour drive and itâ€™s too far for fans, parents and students to travel in a night. These changes will help eliminate those travel woes.â€? Other changes include an â€œopt-outâ€? declaration for schools that wish not to enter the NCHSAA playoffs. A form would have to be signed by the athletic director, principal and superintendant and must be submitted prior to the release of playoff brackets.
participation trophies the kids now get for gutting out a whole recreation soccer season. And after a while, I think I remember stashing momâ€™s trophy into the bottom junk drawer of my own dresser. I was older, and I didnâ€™t need to play imaginary games anymore and award myself a championship trophy. Where it is now, I donâ€™t know. Probably long gone. Something inside of me hopes itâ€™s stuffed away again in a box in the attic of my dadâ€™s house now, that maybe after I grew up and graduated to a time where I actually needed all of my dresser drawers, that mom found it and kept it. I doubt it, though. It was in that original box I pillaged for a reason. It wasnâ€™t important to her and had no impact on her life. She had moved on and was the matriarch of a small family. Still, I wonder. When she came in to clean my
room and saw that trophy, did she think back to those old days? When she saw me play with it as boy, did she relive memories of late nights out with friends and no restrictions? Did she miss that time of her life, longing for the period before I came around and changed everything? That, I most assuredly, donâ€™t know. And I have no reason to think she ever did wonder any of those things. Which confirms what I already know. Mom was a helluva mom. And I miss her every day, especially on this one. Not long after the trophy discovery, I found the wooden tennis rackets. She let me keep those, too.

Report: It wasn’t just a ‘Mancession’ Isabella, Jacob Findings of report on working moms top most popular baby names list By JOCELYN NOVECK AP National Writer
NEW YORK — They’ve called it the “Mancession” — a recession that’s affected men disproportionately, because of its brutal impact on maledominated sectors like construction and manufacturing. But that term rings hollow to women like Sara Wade, an Illinois schoolteacher who became the sole supporter of two school-aged children — possibly for good, she fears — when her ex-husband, a carpenter and contractor, stopped paying child support 15 months ago. Or to Martha Gonzalez, a divorced mother of three in Texas who had to take a second, part-time job when her work in real estate became scarcer. She lost her benefits, too, and for the first time in her adult working life, has no health insurance. Or to Angela Grice, single mom of a 3-year-old son, who cobbles together two low-paying, part-time jobs while she tries to get an accounting degree that will lead to some stability for her and her son. Concerned about women like these, a congressional committee has issued a report, timed for Mother’s Day, outlining the adverse impact the recession has had on working women — especially on mothers, and particularly single moms. A copy was provided to The Associated Press ahead of its Monday release. Strikingly, the report, by the Joint Economic
NEW YORK (AP) — Some key findings of a report on working mothers and the recession by Congress’ Joint Economic Committee, to be released Monday: n Most jobs lost in the recession were lost by men, but many women lost jobs as well. From December 2007 to December 2009, women lost 45 jobs for every 100 lost by men. n As the economy began to recover in recent months, women lost jobs while men gained jobs. From October 2009 to March 2010, women lost 22,000 jobs while men gained 260,000. n April’s positive employment numbers were better for men. Women gained 86,000 jobs last month, while men gained 204,000. n Participation of mothers in the labor force increased during the recession, from 71 percent to 71.4 percent between 2007 and 2009. n Nearly half of all mothers with children under 18 worked full time last year. n Of the 21.7 million mothers employed in 2009, twothirds were in a dual-earner family. One-third — about 7.5 million mothers — were the sole breadwinners. n Unemployment increased dramatically during the recession for single mothers. Between 2007 and 2009, the unemployment rate among single mothers increased from 8 percent to 13.6 percent. n Many women — 3.3. million in 2009 — worked part-time for economic reasons, either because they couldn’t find full-time work or their hours were cut back. Source: “Working Mothers in the Great Recession,” by the Joint Economic Committee. The report is an update to a May 2009 report.
Committee, finds that whereas during the bulk of the recession job losses were overwhelmingly male, as the economy edged toward recovery, the trend began reversing. “As job losses slowed in the final months of 2009, women continued to lose jobs as men found employment,” says the report, based on the committee’s analysis of data from the Bureau of labor Statistics, including unpublished data. Specifically, from October 2009 to March 2010, women lost 22,000 jobs while men gained 260,000, it says. It adds: “April’s strong employment growth showed
women gained 86,000 jobs last month, far fewer than the 204,000 jobs gained by men.” Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., chair of the committee, noted that the findings were especially dire for single mothers — their unemployment rate went from 8 percent to 13.6 percent between 2007 and 2009. “Women are losing more jobs, yet families are more dependent on their earnings,” she said in a telephone interview. In all, one-third of jobs lost during the Great Recession belonged to women, Maloney notes. That’s striking, she says,
because in earlier recessions the percentage was much lower; women accounted for 15 percent of job losses in the 2001 recession, for example. But even women who’ve been able to hold onto their jobs have found the economic sands shifting beneath them in ways they never anticipated. Wade, the Illinois schoolteacher, counts herself among the luckier ones. An 8th-grade English teacher in Skokie for 16 years, she’s fortunate to have tenure and seniority. (She thanks her lucky stars she didn’t take an extended break from her career earlier on, as she once contemplated.) Her husband, whom she divorced in 2004, is a carpenter and contractor, “just the kind of job they mean when the call it a ’Mancession,”’ she says. But the term seems meaningless because the impact of his job troubles has put her in a risky position she never imagined: the sole source of economic support for their 8-year-old boy and 10-year-old girl. Wade has had no child support since January of 2009, and bought a new home with the help of her family. “I can’t imagine what I’d be living in if they hadn’t helped me out,” she says. She’s also worried about a potential pay freeze at her school. “It’s scary,” she says. “I’m the sole provider and I could be stuck here at this level.” She reluctantly assumes she’ll have to support her kids through college on her own.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Mom and Dad may be looking to popular vampire books and the first family for baby names: Cullen is on the rise for boys and Malia for girls. But Miley and Jonas are down, proving that acclaim can be fleeting. Isabella is now the top baby name for girls, Jacob for boys, the Social Security Administration said Friday. Isabella’s climb to the top in 2009 ends Emma’s one-year reign. Jacob is on an 11-year run at the top. “Anything can influence baby names, from pop culture to literature to music and celebrities,” said Jennifer Moss, author of “The One-in-a-Million Baby Name Book” and founder of Babynames.com. Barack still didn’t crack the top 1,000 for boys, but a version of the president’s daughter’s name, Malia, was the fastest riser for girls. Maliyah moved up 342 spots, to No. 296, while Malia, which is how Obama’s daughter spells it, came in at No. 192, rising 153 spots. Many of the top names — and the fastest risers — match the popular “Twilight” series of books and movies about teen romance and vampires. Edward Cullen is one of the lead characters. Edward moved up 11 spots, to No. 137 on the list, and Cullen was the biggest riser among boys’ names, up 297 spots to No. 485. Edward Cullen is, of course, a vampire. His
girlfriend? Bella, a common nickname for Isabella. Jacob is another character in the stories, but Jacob’s rule at the top started well before the first “Twilight” book was published in 2005. Isabella has been in the top 10 since 2004. “People seem to be a little bit more creative, inventive and flexible with their daughters’ names,” said Social Security Commissioner Michael J. Astrue. “With boys, I think we tend to be a little bit more consistent. The names don’t change quite as much.” A little more than 22,000 girls born in 2009 were named Isabella, followed by Emma, Olivia, Sophia and Ava. Nearly 21,000 boys were named Jacob, followed by Ethan, Michael, Alexander and William. Mia was the only newcomer to the top 10 for girls, rising from 14th to 10th. Among the boys, Jayden moved up from 11th to 8th, and Noah moved up from 15th to 9th. The Social Security Administration started compiling name lists in 1997. The agency offers lists of baby names dating to 1880. Miley, as in teen singer Miley Cyrus, soared up the charts in 2008 but slipped last year, dropping 61 spots to No. 189. A different version, Mylee, fell even further, dropping 420 spots to No. 853. Marely fell the most among girls, dropping 517 spots to No. 851.

Congregation prays for relief from choir director’s wife DEAR ABBY: Our small church choir has a talented volunteer director. His wife, “Martha,” is an energetic and animated soprano who has a reasonably good voice in her range. Unfortunately, Martha sings louder than all of the other choir members, and she ends many songs by trying to reach a final high note. The problem is her high notes are often flat and sound more like a cat’s scream. No one likes it. The congregation is held hostage to Martha’s screams because they’re afraid of losing her husband’s free directing services. How can we convince Martha to cut out the high notes? — COVERING OUR EARS ON THE WEST COAST

Happy Birthday: Don’t let someone else’s uncertainty stand in the way of your success. You can make a difference if you are confident regarding your own abilities and offer what will work best for everyone involved. Try to be gentler with the people close to you. However, those you deal with from a distance must be kept in line if you hope to achieve success. Your numbers are 2, 9, 15, 28, 34, 36, 40 ARIES (March 21-April 19): The way you handle others and react to the responses you receive will determine how much you are asked to do in the future. If someone else makes a fuss or starts a fight, be diplomatic and you will be the one everyone supports. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t expect everyone to be forthcoming with information. Ask questions and stay on top of matters if you want to control the outcome. Dealing with institutions will help you get a better understanding of what needs to be done. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your emotions will be close to the surface, causing you to overreact. Getting upset will only make matters worse and lead to an irreversible situation. Your own success will be your sweetest revenge. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You are sitting in a good position that can lead to more suitable lifestyle. You can lower your stress levels if you make the right moves. A responsibility someone gives you will be to your benefit. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do what you can but don’t waste time fretting over what you cannot. The more you focus on giving help where it’s really needed, the sooner you will get the recognition deserved for a job well done. Look at the big picture. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22): A partnership appears to need a little fine-tuning. Talk your way through what you feel needs to take place and you will come up with a workable solution. Your ability to have fun and get the job done will help you get your way. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your ability to assess, assimilate and work your intellectual magic will give you the edge and help you gain popularity. Tidy up your personal paperwork so you feel better about where you are heading and how you are going to get there. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It’s time to shock everyone with a big, overdue change. Follow through with your plans and don’t stop until you reach your destination. It’s this sort of tenacity that will ensure your success and revive your reputation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Face facts and deal with situations. Avoid people or scenarios that will only make matters worse. An old responsibility can be put to rest so that you do not have to be weighed down by it any longer. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you take time to worry about what everyone else is doing and thinking you will accomplish little. Don’t let emotional issues stand in the way of progress. Lay out your plans and stick to them. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Think about who you have become and what you have accomplished. Once you have a better view of the past and present, you will know what to do in order to feel satisfied with your own progress. Love is in the stars. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t keep things bottled up when you need to address personal issues that are bothering you. A partnership will grow if you take the right steps. Let your own personality shine through.
DEAR COVERING: Because Martha’s improvisations are distracting the congregation — which I assume is larger than the choir — your spiritual leader should have a private chat with the director and explain that “the congregation” would prefer the choir perform the hymns exactly as they are written. It should get the message across without being personally offensive. And it’s not as if you’re all asking that his wife not perform, just that she tone it down. o DEAR ABBY: I was in line at the pharmacy yesterday and one clerk was on duty with the pharmacist. I waited my turn and asked for my

prescription. She had to go check on it, so I sat down to wait. In the meantime, two other customers came in and waited in line. The clerk called my name, then asked me to get back in line. Shouldn’t I have been taken care of next? — ANNOYED IN VICTORVILLE, CALIF. DEAR ANNOYED: I’m not sure there are rules of etiquette for counter service at a pharmacy, but common sense dictates that the customers be taken care of in an efficient manner. I see nothing efficient about making someone who has started being served wait longer — particularly if the clerk might also have to check on the prescriptions of the customers who came after you did. You should have been taken care of next. o DEAR ABBY: Two women carrying a baby in an infant car seat entered the gift shop where my sister
works. The grandmother asked my sister if they could leave the baby behind the counter while they shopped. My sister politely told them it was against store policy. They proceeded to shop, putting the carrier down in the middle of the aisle while they browsed — leaving it unattended at times. The grandmother bought a few items, then told my sister she might not shop there anymore because of the policy of not supervising infants while customers shop. My sister has dealt with many customer-related issues, but this one left her speechless. Employees assist customers, but they do not baby-sit. Also, leaving a child with a stranger is dangerous and could lead to potentially serious situations that parents may regret. What’s your opinion on this issue? — SPEECHLESS IN OHIO DEAR SPEECHLESS: Your sister was right to inform the grandmother about the store’s policy. And it is the grandmother’s privilege to take her business elsewhere if she doesn’t approve of it. o DEAR READERS: A happy Mother’s Day to mothers everywhere — birth mothers, adoptive and foster mothers, and stepmothers — and especially to my own beautiful mother, Pauline Phillips, in Minneapolis.
ODDS AND ENDS Growling sea lion pup pulled from under police car SAN DIEGO (AP) — A sea lion pup has been captured after hiding under a San Diego police car for four hours in the middle of a road. Police Sgt. Jack Knish says officers got a call about 4 a.m. Wednesday that the pup was crossing a street in the Ocean Beach area. Knish says an officer parked his car in the middle of the road and went to investigate. That’s when the sea lion came out from under another car and scuttled under the patrol car. SeaWorld experts retrieved the growling pup at about 8 a.m. Rescuer Kevin Robinson grabbed it by the tail and put it in a net. Robinson says the pup, who’s less than a year old, was dehydrated but uninjured. He says the pup weighs about 25 pounds - less than half what it should weigh. Robinson says it will be released within two months.

Man accused of smashing van into mobile homes LAFAYETTE, Colo. (AP) — Colorado authorities said they have no idea what led a man to drive his pickup truck into three mobile homes and said a 30year-old man was acting like a human “pinball machine.” The 30-year-old had two girls in his 1990 Chevy Astro Sunday when police said he rammed the car into units at the Banecks Mobile Home Park in Lafayette, in Denver’s northern suburbs. The man also hit a chain link fence, a concrete culvert and a parked pickup truck. Police said he appeared to be hitting things deliberately. The suspect fled police and his wrecked van on foot and attempted to elude police by jumping in a Dumpster. He was discovered and now faces several charges. The girls, aged 8 and 10, appear to be OK.

Nonprofits do many good deeds Q: I just paid my taxes, and it makes me angry to see all the churches, charities and other organizations that don’t pay a cent in taxes, while I have to pay until it hurts. They ought to pay their fair share just like everyone else. I know you don’t agree, but that’s my position. -- M.H. A: Elsewhere in your letter, you mention that you never give any money to these organizations -- but would you do so if they did pay taxes? I doubt it -- and the reason, I suspect, is because you’re only interested in your own pocketbook. But others do give to such groups; Americans as a whole are a very generous people. And the reason they give is because they realize that our society would be in great difficulty if it weren’t for the work our churches and charities do to make our world a better place. If all the food banks, homeless shelters, hospitals, community centers, addiction rehabilitation centers and countless other enterprises run by churches and charities were forced to close, millions of lives would be hurt. And if they did close, governmental agencies would be forced to fill the gap -- at enormous cost to you and every other taxpayer. No system is perfect, but I urge you not to turn a blind eye to the good done by the vast number of churches and other organizations who are sincerely seeking to serve others. Christians take seriously Jesus’ command: “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39).

Dairy Bar reopening delayed
1,000-point drop, trouble at Goldman Sachs, turns up heat on Congress to act By TOM RAUM
f you live in Sanford and not under a rock, you probably already know this. But the Fairview Dairy Bar is closed, for now. I spoke with the once and now current owners, Paul and Kathy Freedle, on Friday while they worked to prepare the restaurant for a reopening. Kathy told me they had planned to reopen this upcoming Thursday, but got bad news from the Lee County Department of Public Health. The health inspector apparently is working with a reduced staff right now, and is all booked up for the next week with public pools and other appointments. So it’s probably going to be another week, at least, before the Freedles can get the stamp of approval to reopen a business their family operated for more than 50 years. Ah, bureaucracy. If you get a craving for some chicken ‘n dumplings this week, you know who to blame. Anyway, Kathy and Paul sat down with me for a few minutes to talk over their decision to foreclose on the old owners and regain control of the Dairy Bar. They said they really didn’t expect to work again after selling out a year ago this month, but “We were planning on a nice long retirement,” Kathy said. “We had a ball, and we had a lot of plans to travel.” But don’t think that just because the Freedles are back things are going to be exactly the way they were when they left. For starters, they plan to close on Mondays. They are going to have a smaller, simpler menu as well. Retirement, they said, gave them a newfound respect for time outside of the restaurant, and they aren’t going back to 100-hour work weeks. “We’re going to do things a little different this time,” Paul said. “We’re going to keep our priorities in order: God, family then work. We think we will be better business folks if we are better family people.” They plan to bring back most of their old staff along with some of the workers from the recent ownership. But they are coming back to a business climate in Sanford that is different from the one they left. The economy is even worse, food prices are higher and there’s even more competition in Sanford from similar restaurants. But Paul said they feel confident they can still make it.

“It may be that we demystified the process of making stuff,” says Niall Maher about his nephew’s jump into fashion. Ionescu traveled to learn shoemaking, first taking a class in Seattle to learn the basics. His uncle living in the Netherlands introduced Ionescu to a cutting-edge shoemaker, Alexander Fielden, whose creations seem a better fit for a museum than a foot. Ionescu spent several weeks with Fielden studying pattern making. After that, Ionescu spent five weeks in Budapest studying with a master shoemaker who was a stickler for quality craftsmanship.

WASHINGTON — The stomach-churning fear about Wall Street’s turbulence is roaring back. Europe’s spreading debt crisis, fraud charges against Goldman Sachs and a 1,000 point nose dive in the Dow Jones industrials are turning up the heat on Congress to get the nation’s financial house under control. If it continues, the stock market’s dizzying plunge could threaten the fragile recovery even as other economic indicators — including the biggest monthly gain in employment in four years — suggest the U.S. is rebounding faster than its European trading partners. Investors appeared to be looking beyond the improving economic data to focus on vivid images of riots in Greece, floods in the South, the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the Times Square bombing attempt. There’s already deep public hostility toward Wall Street institutions, so the Dow’s extreme volatility seemed likely to work to the advantage of the backers of the Senate’s financial regulation overhaul bill. The meltdown was cited by supporters as one more reason to tighten lightly regulated high-speed computerized trading practices. Both parties are angling to harness the anger toward Wall Street bailouts and bonuses for political gain in the fall elections. A robust stock market “is key to the recovery. It’s vital to keeping high-income households spending. It’s key to business that have started to hire again,” said Mark Zandi of Moody’s Economy.com. “Business leaders are taking a signal from their stock price. If their stock prices fall, they’re not going to hire. The recovery’s going to be short circuited,” said Zandi, a one-time adviser to GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain who now

Man’s interest in fashion spawns homemade shoes By ANDREA WEIGL An AP Member Exchange
RALEIGH — Kieran Ionescu’s interest in fashion dates back to the presents his uncles used to send him for Christmas and birthdays. The presents tended to be side projects for the uncles’ friends, such as Diesel jeans and T-shirts and hats by Shankbone. Regardless, the presents were advanced for the fashion scene at Durham’s Riverside High School back when Ionescu was a student, and they left an impression. “That instilled a fascination with garments and fashion,” Ionescu says. A decade later, Ionescu, 26, is designing and making shoes by hand out of his West Durham home. His business is BlackArm Bespoke; “black arm” is a nod
to the tattoo that wraps his right forearm from wrist to elbow, and bespoke is an antiquated word for custom made. “I’ve always had jobs that were craft-oriented,” says Ionescu, including carpentry and as a coffee roaster at Durham’s Counter Culture Coffee. In 2008, Ionescu, who has always been fascinated by sneaker culture, decided he wanted to learn shoemaking. He was inspired by his uncles’ most recent fashion efforts. Niall Maher, a vice president for merchandising for Double RL, a Ralph Lauren line, taught himself to make neckties and launched an accessories company, Druthers Appointments. And Liam Maher is a self-taught designer who works for Denham the Jeanmaker in Amsterdam.

mote our community to military and civilian employees at Forces Command. After hearing about BRAC relocations for over three years, the time is drawing near when the civilians (1100 mostly longtime Atlanta residents) must decide whether to move to North Carolina. Almost 3800 military personnel with Forces Command and USARC, of course, do not get a choice. If their orders say move, they will move. We hope to meet

“We’re going to work hard to keep serving a good meal at the most affordable price,” Paul said. “We’ve had a lot of competition for many years, but we’ve always been fortunate to have the support of the community and have always stood strong.” The Freedles said they would have a solid date for the reopening soon and would get back with me. And they’re getting more excited each day to serve customers again. “We’re hoping to get back on our feet,” Paul said, “and get to see everybody again.”

understand how the foot works so he can make smart designs. Ionescu also noticed that people his age were becoming more active consumers, finding out who made their clothing and how it was made. He noticed they were paying attention to whether shoes were glued or hand-sewn and whether their jeans were made of selvage denim on oldstyle looms. That generation’s

many of these people next month. We’ve contracted a venue for our trade show-type event, worked with the Public Affairs office at Ft. McPherson to understand what information should be provided, developed an advertising campaign to boost attendance and solicited Chamber members to help sell our community to these potential residents. The trip is scheduled for June 4. We are excited about the chance to go on the road to promote Lee County as a great place to live
Around the same time the Dairy Bar reopens, a new eatery will open on Main Street in Jonesboro as well. Judy’s Diner, owned by Judy McPherson, will serve its first customers on May 17 in the old Lee Drug building being renovated by Southeastern Properties. McPherson currently operates the Olivia Grill in western Harnett County, but will close that restaurant the weekend before opening the new one. She has been in the restaurant business for more than 15 years, she said, and once operated a grill inside the White Swan Trading Post before opening her current place.
Judy’s Diner will be open from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays.
Sanford Medical Group joins PMC Pinehurst Medical Clinic officially announced this week the addition of Sanford Medical Group, a six-physician practice, to its ranks effective May 1. The transition began after the execution of an Asset Purchase Agreement on December 2009. Drs. John Mangum, Dave Nave, Jennifer Gregory, Glenna Grider, Vaishali Nadkarni and Murali Pisharody and Sally Chapin, FNP provide comprehensive family medicine
services to the Sanford area. A press release from Pinehurst stated that “the transition will produce very few changes to current Sanford Medical Group patients. Most importantly, providers, practice locations, and the main clinic number will not change.” The acquisition makes Pinehurst Medical Clinic a 51 physician multispecialty clinic with locations in Moore, Lee and Scotland counties. With the addition of Sanford Medical Group to the practice, Pinehurst Medical Clinic can now offer family medicine along with its current cardiology, pulmonary and sleep medicine services in Sanford.
interest may be what has made work-wear Americana fashionable recently. Clothing that was designed to last when more people worked in the fields than cubicles seems to be making a comeback with the likes of Dickies and Woolrich. The latter got a makeover when Japanese designer Daiki Suzuki launched the Woolrich Woolen Mills line of modern men’s clothes in 2006. Ionescu wants his shoes to exemplify the same intersection of design and craft, and as a result be a part of this
“active consumerism” movement. He is developing a small line of products: a men’s boot, a women’s boot, a wallet, a belt and a bag. His products range from $45 to several hundred dollars. A handsewn pair of shoes takes him more than 40 hours of work. But he’s also trying to create a shoe that would sell for $100 to $150. He designs the shoe patterns in a studio on the second floor of his home and then constructs the shoes in his garage, lined with equipment, work
tables and leather scraps. Pointing to tools hanging on the wall above his work bench, Ionescu says, “Most of these tools are three times my age.” So far, shoemaking doesn’t pay the mortgage. His “lady friend,” Kim Bullock, works full-time at Counter Culture Coffee. Ionescu works two days a week at Lil’ Farm in Orange County and sells the farm’s produce and eggs at the Durham Farmers’ Market on Saturdays. Some day, Ionescu hopes he will “be able to make a living offering these products I believe in.”
and bring up a family. On Tuesday, Russ Haddad with the Travel and Tourism Division visited Lee County to talk about the development of a tourism effort. Mayor Andrews, Mayor Olive, Commissioner Hayes and a group of twenty-five interested citizens listened to a short but very informative discussion of what other communities are doing to attract visitors. Opportunity exists to promote Lee County as a destination for overnight visits which, according to Mr. Haddad, produce the most revenue. On Thursday, the Chamber and the CCCC Small Business Center held our 25th Annual
Small Business Banquet at the Civic Center. Chatlee Boat and Marine received the Small Business of the Year award. Jeff and Robbie Yow have built an extraordinary business which is known not only across the state but nationally as well. Jim Felton, longtime director of the Small Business Center at CCCC received the Business Advocate of the Year. Jim has counseled many local entrepreneurs over the years as well as directed the operation of the Civic Center. Promoting local businesses and business people is one of the Chamber’s main duties. We are so proud of our business owners who take risk, provided
payrolls and benefits and make our community unique. On Friday, we began putting together the next edition of the Voice of Business which will be published in a few days. This quarterly publication, which is a partnership between the Chamber and the Herald, is designed to promote Lee County business to a much wider audience. In addition to being received by all Herald subscribers, we enclose the Voice of Business in about 100 newcomer packet mailed out to prospective new residents each quarter. Promoting Lee County is a full time, never quit job…and we love it!

counsels congressional Democrats. “This volatility is not good for anybody and I think it’s very important for someone to try to figure it out,” he said. It didn’t take long for politicians to jump into the fray. President Barack Obama said regulators were looking into Thursday’s market panic “with a concern for protecting investors and preventing this from happening again.” While the Senate legislation, an Obama priority, does not now address stock trading issues, attempts are under way to change that. Sens. Ted Kaufman, D-Del., and Mark Warner, D-Va., proposed requiring the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to scrutinize high-frequency trading and other computerized strategies that move buy and sell orders at blinding speeds — practices that may have contributed to Thursday’s snowballing sell-off. Rep. Paul Kanjorski, DPa., scheduled a Tuesday hearing of the House Financial Services subcommittee that he leads. “We cannot allow a technological error to spook the markets and cause panic,” he said. Investors got an unmistakable reminder of how quickly their fortunes can change on Thursday when the Dow took a short but unprecedented 1,000point tailspin. The sudden drop — generally believed to be due to trader error and computer glitches — sent the stocks of several companies briefly to almost zero. The Dow partially rebounded to finish the day down 347 points, or 3.2 percent. But turbulence continued on Friday, with the Dow falling nearly 280 points at one point before ending the day with a 140point drop. The losses came despite Friday’s strong
U.S. jobs April report, approval by Greek lawmakers of drastic austerity cuts needed for international rescue loans worth $140 billion and approval of the package by both houses of the parliament in Germany, where bailing out Greece is unpopular. A Greek default could be dire. Greece’s troubles already have dealt a blow to the euro and could result in far higher borrowing costs for other indebted European countries. The crisis eventually could cross the Atlantic to the United States, which is facing its own debt and borrowing problems that in some ways resemble Greece’s. The U.S. stock sell-off, coupled with the government’s civil fraud charges against the investment bank Goldman Sachs, should help build momentum for the regulation bill and hand Obama another legislative victory to follow health care overhaul, said American University political scientist James Thurber. “It sets even more of an environment to get the thing through,” Thurber said. “It triggers oversight hearings and concern about unregulated offWall Street trading institutions and computerized trading.” Stock trading increasingly has become dependent on computers that process trades automatically, speeding the flow of buy and sell orders, often on new electronic exchanges far removed from trading floors. What is known as high frequency trading — rapid automated buying and selling — now accounts for more than half of daily trading volume. It was not clear whether the market’s jitters would calm with the release of more good economic news — or threaten to plunge the economy into a double-dip recession with a return of the rout that drove stocks down to bargain basement levels in 2008 and early 2009.

When Investing, Learn All Aspects of Risk In life, you can’t avoid all risks — and you shouldn’t try, because endeavors that carry risk also bring the prospect of reward. And it’s certainly the same in the investment world. So instead of trying to invest risk-free, which is impossible, learn to recognize the different types of investment risk while becoming familiar with your own risk tolerance. To start with, let’s quickly look at some of the most common forms of investment risk: s Risk of losing principal — This is the type of risk most commonly associated with investing. You could lose some, or even all, of your principal if you sell an investment, such as a stock, whose value has dropped lower than the purchase price. You can’t eliminate the risk of losing principal, but you may be able to reduce it by buying quality stocks and holding them long enough to overcome shortterm market drops. s Inﬂation risk — With an investment that pays a ﬁxed rate of return, such as a certiﬁcate of deposit (CD), you run the risk of not keeping up with inﬂation, which means you could lose purchasing power over time. Consequently, it’s a good idea not to “overload” on these types of investments.
