Lee County High School ‘eerily silent’ as students come to grips with the ‘senseless’ death of Josh Britt, a popular student and athlete By BILLY LIGGETT

SANFORD — The news spread quickly Friday night, less than an hour after emergency crews responded to the horrific scene on U.S. 1. Phone calls. Text messages. Emails. Online social networks. By Saturday morning, an entire community of students and their families shared the same silent shock after hearing of the death of Josh Britt, a good-looking and well-liked 17-year-old Lee County High School student who was but a few weeks away from becoming a senior. On Sunday, a few thousand people had joined memorial websites created on Facebook, and on Monday morning, a few students took a helmet, some flowers and spray paint to the football field to create a memo-

FUNERAL SERVICE The funeral service for Joshua “Josh” Britt has been changed to 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center, located a 1801 Nash St. in Sanford. Burial will follow at 11 a.m. Thursday at Ashley Heights Baptist Church Cemetery in Aberdeen. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Lee County High School Booster Program in memory of Josh Britt: P.O. Box 2421, Sanford NC, 27331.

SBI still College honors academic excellence probes teen’s death

Special to The Herald

LILLINGTON (MCT) — Nearly four months after a 13-year-old Harnett County teen was shot and killed by two sheriff’s deputies along N.C. 87, the State Bureau of Investigation says the shooting inquiry is ongoing. In the early morning hours of Jan. 19, two Harnett County Sheriff’s deputies spotted 13-yearold Joseph Wheeler walking along Nursery Road toward N.C. 87 carrying several bags. About 2:25 a.m., the deputies, Cpl. T. Assman and Sgt. T. Daggett, approached the teen, who was seated in the ditch outside a convenience store at 1943 N.C. 24-87. When the deputies asked to search Wheeler’s bags, he pulled out a gun and started shooting at them at point-blank range. Assman was shot in the leg. Deputies returned fire, killing Wheeler. Jennifer Canada, a spokeswoman for the SBI, said investigators are waiting on a few more reports before handing over their findings to District Attorney Susan Doyle’s office. The SBI investigates any shooting deaths where law enforcement is involved as a matter of protocol, Canada said. The N.C. Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has not released Wheeler’s autopsy, which was performed days after the shooting. A spokesman said the office still was waiting on final medical reports before releasing the autopsy findings. Canada said the SBI, nor any other agency, had been withholding the autopsy results during the investigation. No special instructions or changes in policy were imposed on the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office as a result of the incident, Canada said. Assman and Daggett were placed on administrative leave pending the results of the investigation, Canada said.

TIMMONSVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Officials say the pilot of a single-engine plane was uninjured after he missed a grassy rural runway and landed on U.S. Highway 76 in South Carolina. Florence County sheriff’s Capt. Mike Nunn told the Morning News of Florence that pilot Phillip Brown of Sanford attempted to land Sunday at Huggins Memorial Airport. No traffic on the road was involved in the crash but the highway was closed Sunday afternoon as the plane was removed and aviation fuel was cleaned up. The newspaper reported that the plane is a Cirrus SR22 and is owned by Norma One LLC based in Charleston. Nunn said the Federal Aviation Administration will investigate the crash.

Great opportunity to step up, serve county


ave you ever felt as if you would like to give some of your time and talents to Lee County? There are numerous agencies who would love to have volunteers from the community. The Lee County Board of Commissioners is among the groups looking for volunteers — individuals who would be willing to serve on various county boards and commissions. Here is a listing of those various boards and commissioners of which there are vacancies this year: Agriculture Advisory Board (6 vacancies); Sanford Board of Adjustments (1 vacancy); Economic Development Corporation (2 vacancies); CCCC Board

of Trustees (1 vacancy); Fire Advisory Board (3 vacancies); Board of Health — 1 Dentist, 1 Pharmacist, 1 Medical Doctor and 2 General Public members; Cemetery Board (5 vacancies); Industrial Facilities & Pollution Control Financing Authority (1 vacancy); Library Board of Trustees (3 vacancies); Mid-Carolina Workforce Development (2 vacancies); Parks and Recreation Commission (1 vacancy); Lee County Planning Board (5 vacancies); Sanford Planning Board — alternate (1 vacancy); Rest Home-Nursing Home Advisory Board (9 vacancies); Senior Services Advisory Board (2 vacancies); COLTS Transportation Advisory Board (1 vacancy);

and Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (2 vacancies). Richard Hayes, chairman of the county commissioners, says the board is “very serious wanting to encourage new people to get involved in county government on a year to year basis. We seek interested, active citizens of all ages who are willing to be appointed and who want to serve their fellow citizens, in one capacity or another, perhaps for the first time, and to bring new, fresh ideas to the table ... for the benefit of all.” So who is qualified? “All citizens 21 years old or older who are Lee County residents, who are knowledgeable and dedicated to serving

Lee County for up to two consecutive 3-year terms (unless otherwise stipulated by state law) and prepared to participate in all regularly called meetings as stipulated in the bylaws and called by the committee chairman,” says Hayes. The county has been wellserved by these boards and commissions over the years. It’s important that dedicated men and women continue to step to the forefront of responsibility in service to our county and its citizens. It’s great that we have experienced individuals on these boards and commissions — and it’s critical that there are others who are willing to serve and

bring fresh ideas to the table. There are many vacancies — and it would be nice if our commissioners have plenty of choices to find the very best people available to serve in these different capacities. This is a great time to step forward and offer your service to the citizens of this county on one of these various boards and commissions. Commissioners will make the appointments to these boards at the June 21 meeting. Applications are due no later than May 31st and can be found on the website lee ... or, contact Gaynell Lee, Clerk to the Board, at (919) 718-4605 or by email at

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

It’s Greek to me


ALEIGH — A.B. Swindell, a state senator from Nash County, emerged from closed-door budget talks as the North Carolina General Assembly was about to convene for another year. “These are strange times,” Swindell said, leaving it at that. I assumed that the strangeness to which he referred had to do with weighing budget cuts and spending increases in yet another year where state tax collections weren’t exactly overwhelming the folks in charge of processing the money. ... ... the Democratic politicians in charge walked with a bit more jump in their step after a jobs report showing that the country added 290,000 jobs in April. House Speaker Joe Hackney talked about hearing more optimism from people as he traveled around the state. And he reminded a group of reporters that North Carolina isn’t like Washington or Greece. “We balance the state budget every year,” he said. The Orange County lawyer echoed the words of Gov. Beverly Perdue as she had rolled out her $20.6 billion state spending plan amid discussion of remaking state government. Hackney spoke of streamlining and prioritizing. Legislative Republicans, meanwhile, talked about structural deficits, which in legislative parlance means unsustainable spending. Their solution was a spending freeze. Why come up with specific ideas to ease long-term spending pressures and actually make some constituency mad? Outside the Legislative Building, just 60 or so protesters from the tea party crowd showed up for the opening day of the legislative session after pledging to surround the building. They came calling for the Democratically-controlled state legislature to join efforts to block national health care reform. They might have better spent their time asking the Neuse River to flow west. Then again, they weren’t rioting like their disaffected counterparts in Greece. But the disconnect, inside and outside the building, seemed about as great. With the politicians, the reality hasn’t sunk in that the thorny political problems aren’t so likely to dissipate as the economy improves. A growing elderly population, escalating health care costs and retiring state workers promised defined retirement benefits – especially in such volatile investment markets — will see to that. With the protesters, the reality hasn’t sunk in that those political problems are, in large part, a result of an electorate that occasionally yaps about government deficits but mostly demands that politicians allow them to live beyond their means. At some point, in North Carolina and elsewhere, these lines will cross. Government will actually have to be remade.

Alienation of Latinos W ASHINGTON — Has the Republican Party become, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid recently charged, the “anti-immigrant party”? The accusation is overbroad. Republicans (and others) who are offended by chaos at the southern border, who are concerned about the strains placed by illegal immigration on public services and who believe enforcement should precede comprehensive reform, are not necessarily “anti-immigrant.” Reid has an interest in painting with the broadest possible brush to motivate Hispanic supporters in his own, uphill re-election campaign. But it would be absurd to deny that the Republican ideological coalition includes elements that are anti-immigrant — those who believe that Hispanics, particularly Mexicans, are a threat to American culture and identity. When Arizona Republican Senate candidate J.D. Hayworth calls for a moratorium on legal immigration from Mexico, when then-Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., refers to Miami as a “Third World country,” when State Rep. Russell Pearce, one of the authors of the Arizona immigration law, says Mexicans’ and Central Americans’ “way of doing business” is different, Latinos can reasonably assume that they are unwelcome in certain Republican circles. The intensity of these Republican attitudes is evident, not just from what activists say, but from what Republican leaders are being forced to say. Republican Sen. John McCain, a long-term supporter of humane, comprehensive immigration reform, has run a commercial feeding fears of “drug and human smuggling, home invasions, murder” by illegal immigrants. Never mind that the level of illegal immigration is down in Arizona, or that skyrocketing crime rates along the border are a myth. McCain’s tag line — “Complete the danged fence” — will rank as one of the most humiliating capitulations in modern political history. Ethnic politics is symbolic and personal. Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kennedy gained African-American support by calling Coretta Scott King while her husband was in prison. Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater lost support by voting against the Civil Rights Act of 1964. A generation of African-Americans voters never forgot either gesture. Republicans have now sent three clear signals to Hispanic voters: Proposition 187 in California, attempting to deny illegal immigrants health care and public education; the immigration debate of 2006, dominated by strident Republican opponents of reform; and now the Arizona immigration law. According to a 2008 study by the Pew Hispanic Center, 49 percent of Hispanics said that Democrats had more concern for people of their background; 7 percent believed this was true of Republicans. Since the Arizona controversy, this gap can only have grown larger. In a matter of months, Hispanic voters in Arizona have gone from being among the most pro-GOP in the nation to being among the most hostile.

Local families and businesses are having to cut their budgets to make ends meet. Meanwhile, our local government maintains the status quo. Chairman Richard Hayes wouldn’t know bare bones if some were placed upon his lap. Hayes applauded government workers for bearing the strain of a full-time job with premium benefits in a county with unemployment levels ranging from 13-15 percent. Hayes is as out of touch with Lee County as this bloated budget. The county manager could have provided for tax relief in the budget if Hayes and “Doc” Oldham would let others participate. After reading its article on the budget, it looks like The Herald is applying for a PR position with Hayes. — dchris46

Immigration issues are emotional and complex. But this must be recognized for what it is: political suicide. Consider that Hispanics now make up 40 percent of the K-12 students in Arizona, 44 percent in Texas, 47 percent in California, 54 percent in New Mexico. Whatever temporary gains Republicans might make feeding resentment of this demographic shift, the party identified with that resentment will eventually be voted into singularity. In a matter of decades, the Republican Party could cease to be a national party. Even describing this reality invites scorn from those who regard immigration as a matter of principle instead of politics. But this represents a deep misunderstanding of politics itself. In America, political ideals are carried by parties. Republicans who are pro-business and pro-life, support a strong national defense and oppose deficit spending depend on one another to achieve influence. Each of these convictions alienates someone — pro-choice voters, economic liberals, pacifists. But Republican activists who alienate not an issuegroup but an influential, growing ethnic group are a threat to every other constituency. The vocal faction of anti-immigrant Republicans is not merely part of a coalition; it will eventually make it impossible for anyone else in that coalition to succeed at the national level. The good news for Republicans is that Hispanics tend to be entrepreneurial and socially conservative. While the general image of the GOP held by Hispanics is poor, individual Republican candidates can make significant inroads. In presidential elections, Hispanic support can swing widely. In 1996, Bill Clinton got 72 percent of the Hispanic vote. In 2004, John Kerry’s support was in the 50s. And Republicans do not need to win a majority of the Latino vote to compete nationally, just a competitive minority of that vote. But even this modest goal is impossible if Hispanic voters feel targeted rather than courted.

A $285,000 shrink in revenue. That’s about the amount that the business privilige tax was supposed to net this May for the 2009/2010 budget. Not to mention the short fall from it missing from next year’s budget. That’s almost a $600,000 swing. Why are they having to cut programs with all the extra money that Mr. Sam Gaskins said was available in January and Mr. Charles Taylor referred to in March? No one ever seems to find all this extra cash laying around, so programs are not cut. If you are going to cut a program, do so because the program is not worth the investment and is not needed. Once again ...where’s the extra cash? — positivethinker

Dislike of stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annexation bill turns off many senators By GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a saying around the Legislative Building that a bill has probably found the right balance when neither side of a contentious issue is thrilled with the final product but both can live with it. The 2009 House compromise to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annexation rules now sitting in the Senate may serve as the example for what happens when both sides hold legislation in disdain. Citizens and municipalities are so displeased with the bill that cleared the House after more than a year of debate and lobbying that lawmakers are suggesting itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doomed after the first week of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s short session. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to get enthusiastic,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Dan Clodfelter, D-Mecklenburg, who formed a subcommittee last year to examine the House bill and try to find more agreement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a lot of profit dealing with a bill that nobody likes.â&#x20AC;? Changing the 1959 law that lays out how towns and cities can assume unincorporated areas against the will of the property owners has brought out passion from both municipal leaders and the public. Now their sentiments have turned sour on the bill approved by the House last July by a comfortable margin. Those opposed to involuntary annexations who have been lobbying for changes in the law since 2008 now say the 34-page bill makes the situation worse for home and business owners. And they say their brass ring â&#x20AC;&#x201D; requiring a referendum as a prerequisite for involuntary annexations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is tarnished because the threshold for such a vote is too tall for anyone to reach. Fifteen percent of registered voters within the existing city

limits and the area to be annexed would have to sign a petition seeking a vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The referendum is a joke,â&#x20AC;? said Tony Tetterton of Johnston County, vice president of the Fair Annexation Coalition, a citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group demanding reform. Tetterton said the bill doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t protect residents from the abuses of cities that fail to offer services in a timely manner. The cities and their lobbying group, the North Carolina League of Municipalities, were adamantly opposed to any referendum provision and remain so as this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s session began. They said it gives voters veto power over a cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to control suburban sprawl and to create an orderly process for incorporating high-density developments that need police and fire services as well as water and sewer lines. Few people are willing to vote for something that would raise their taxes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is urban in nature should be considered municipal,â&#x20AC;? league lobbyist Kelli Kukura said. The leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opposition comes even after the House bill inserted nearly all 20 suggestions the league offered to lawmakers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; suggestions the league said would give citizens more input and time to respond to an annexation proposal. Those suggestions include increasing the time for a property owner to challenge an annexation in court and giving property owners 20 years to pay their share of water and sewer installations. Kukura said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough time in the budget-adjustment session â&#x20AC;&#x201D; likely to end in July â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to find a solution that would satisfy both sides. That would mean legislation would have to be reintroduced when a new Legislature gets sworn in next January.

Rep. Nelson Dollar, R-Wake, co-sponsor of the House bill, said one compromise could require county commissioners to formally approve a municipal annexation before it can occur, saying it would at least allow residents in the unincorporated areas to have representation. Members of the anti-annexation movement arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t giving up. Citizens dressed in red shirts visited the General Assembly last Wednesday, many of whom sat in the gallery overlooking the Senate as it gaveled in the new session â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a reminder to those in the chamber that the bill still sits in the finance committee. Annexation groups on Monday will mail the first of 15,000 post cards to senators urging them to approve comprehensive annexation law reform. Future post cards will feature official state wildlife like the cardinal, gray squirrel and plot hound. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re mad. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been mad. Hopefully the post cards will be a little bit of a lighter touch,â&#x20AC;? said Barbara Jackson of Buncombe County. Whether reform is pursued this year rests with Buncombe County Sen. Martin Nesbitt, the new majority leader. Predecessor Sen. Tony Rand, D-Cumberland, was largely cool to the idea of broad annexation reform. Nesbittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s populist bent and mountain origins gives him a different perspective. Nesbitt said there are some abuses with municipal annexation but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sure lawmakers have fully figured out how to reduce them. House members â&#x20AC;&#x153;worked on it a year and a half and have a bill nobody likes,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What makes us think we can fix it in a month?â&#x20AC;?

Nuke plant’s neighbors get new pills

RALEIGH (MCT) — Hundreds of Triangle residents who live near the Shearon Harris nuclear plant stocked up Saturday on emergency tablets they hope they never have to use. Health officials in four counties surrounding Progress Energy’s nuclear plant distributed the free pills to replace ones issued in 2003 that have expired. The potassium iodide pills, commonly known as KI pills, can reduce the risk of thyroid cancer from radiation exposure. For many it was a new experience to visit a distribution center staffed by public health officials to pick up antiradiation pills. Entire suburbs have arisen on former cow pastures since the first round of pills went out. The distribution of free KI pills, like the emergency evacuation route road signs in the area, are the occasional reminders of the nuclear neighbor whose cooling tower emits a steady white billow of steam. But residents shrugged at the possibility of a serious accident at Shearon Harris, saying the chances were remote. “I’ve been waiting to do this seven years because the pamphlet the plant sends out says that you should,” said Kim Scanlon, a resident of Holly Springs who picked up hers at Holly Ridge Middle School. — Raleigh News & Observer

Britt Continued from Page 1A

the makeshift memorial as school let out Monday. It was a day of mourning at Lee County High School as students began the healing process and searched for answers to what many are calling a “senseless” act. Josh Britt died Friday driving home from the Moore County home of his girlfriend, Morgan Bridgers, at around 10:30 p.m. She was assisting him on a chemistry project. According to a report released Saturday by the Sanford Police Department, Britt’s Ford slammed into car parked facing south in the middle of the left northbound lane of U.S. 1 — lights off — facing oncoming traffic near the Wicker Street on-ramp. Both Britt and the occupant of the other vehicle, 48-year-old Anthony Boswell, died instantly. Boswell — a husband and father described by his father, Rick Boswell of Alabama, as “highly intelligent, very good-natured and extremely tactful” — appeared to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to SPD Capt. David Smith. As for the questions of why Boswell would put himself and others in danger, Smith had no answers Monday. “We’re backtracking everything leading up to the accident,” said Smith, who said Boswell left no “suicide note” or other evidence that it was done purposely. “We want to find out what was going on in his life to try to shine some light on why he did what he did.”

A COMMUNITY GRIEVES Josh’s father, Jeff Britt, awoke at 11:30 p.m. Friday night and realized his son hadn’t returned home. Unable to reach Josh, Jeff Britt jumped into his car and began to drive toward Pinehurst, where his son’s girlfriend lives. As he approached the Wicker Street bridge, Jeff Britt saw police lights. “Nobody knows what to say,” an emotional Jeff Britt, who has three other children with his wife Jill,

BILLY LIGGETT/The Sanford Herald

A sign reading “J$ You’ll be missed,” was one of several cards and photos left at a makeshift memorial on the football field at Lee County High School Monday in tribute of Josh Britt. told The Herald Monday. “It just doesn’t make sense to me. I just don’t ...” Josh Britt celebrated his 17th birthday in early April, and later that month, he attended his junior prom with his girlfriend. A native of Pinehurst, Britt was active in many school clubs, including DECA and FCA, but his passion, according to friends, was sports. A huge football fan, Britt was a member of the Yellow Jackets varsity squad as a junior, playing linebacker. Classmate Taylor Davenport said Britt had a smile she’ll never forget. “When I would pass him in the hallways, he would always smile at me,” she said. “Even before he knew me. I always saw him laughing and cracking up. He was really an amazing person.” Davenport, like many of her classmates, has joined a handful of Facebook sites dedicated to Britt’s memory. One site, named simply, “R.I.P. Josh Britt,” attracted more than 1,200 “fans” through Monday. A funeral service originally planned for 4 p.m. Wednesday at New Hope Baptist Church,

has been moved to the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center — located across from Lee County High School — to accommodate the mass of friends, family, classmates and well-wishers expected to attend. Monday was the first day of classes since the news of Britt’s death, and LCHS administration prepared by sending grief counselors to the campus to talk comfort students. “It’s been a somber, difficult day today,” LCHS Principal Greg Batten said as classes let out Monday. “A lot of people just couldn’t find the words to say how they felt. The senselessness of it ... the randomness of it has a lot to do with that. But it’s more about the kind of person Josh was. He was a good, active kid who came from a good family. He knew so many people.” Many students wore white T-shirts decorated with messages about Britt and many with his No. 9 painted, drawn or sewn onto the back. Some wore tall white socks and flip flops ... a nod to the odd fashion statement Britt would make at times.

“Today was the hardest,” Davenport said. “The silence was eerie. (The shirts) were one of the more comforting things about today. The teachers and principals were also very supporting. They let us grieve and go where we needed without hesitation.” At 11 a.m., a few hundred students gathered at the painted memorial on the football field to leave flowers and share memories. As the day wore on, many of the students trickled back to the 20-yard line. Ingersoll was with her mother, Amy, and little brother, both of whom wanted to pay their respects. “A lot of these kids are learning to drive,” Amy Ingersoll said, “and they’re become scared because of this senseless act.” Students Taylor Waters and Caitie Davis said it was tough getting back into their cars for school Monday. “This shows us how fragile life is,” Davis said. “It wasn’t until late (Sunday) night that I was ready to drive again.”

‘HIS MEMORY WILL LIVE ON’ Jeff Britt said it’s still difficult to verbalize his feelings about his son and Friday night’s accident. But the support he and his family is receiving from friends and strangers has helped immensely. “It’s all very humbling,” he said. “It’s humbling to know Josh touched so many lives. From the students, his coaches, the faculty and staff, friends and family ... we’re just in awe.” He said part of him doesn’t want to know the details of Friday night, and he said he will “trust in the Lord” when it comes to “why” it happened. “It’s left such a void in our souls,” he said. “I just can’t put into words how painful it is. There’s no possible way to verbalize it. “His memory will live on, though. There are people who have lived their entire lives and never impacted people the way Josh has in 17 short years. His passion and love of life was just so great.”

BILLY BALL/The Sanford Herald

U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge, D-Lillington, talks with East Lee Middle School sixth-graders Ivan Silva (center) and Zackary Hunsucker (right) during a visit to the school’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) lab Monday.

Etheridge Continued from Page 1A

Etheridge listened and talked to sixth-graders in one of East Lee’s state-of-the-art Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) labs, an initiative launched two years ago that gives pupils an interactive learning experience with various contraptions and computers. Students rotate their time working with gadgets that teach them firsthand the principles of science touchstones like electricity, using alternative energy forms, movie-making, mechanisms and pneumatics. “The fact that they’re exposed to it makes all the difference,” Etheridge said as he huddled with students and school officials Monday. The U.S. House’s America COMPETES Reauthorization Act, or H.R. 5116, introduced by Tennessee Democrat Bart Gordon, is expected to bolster school funding for science and engineering programs like the STEM labs, areas that lawmakers say American youth are trailing their foreign contemporaries. Etheridge said he would support more funding for such education, calling it “hands-on experience” that inte-

grates academic curriculum and real-life skills. “They are budding engineers,” Etheridge said. Etheridge, a Harnett County resident, is running for re-election this fall in the U.S. House’s 2nd District, which includes Lee County. Lee County Schools Director of Career and Technical Education Aaron Fleming said East Lee Middle School was the first in the county to phase in the STEM labs, folding it into the remaining middle schools last year. Fleming said the hightech labs will be worked into Southern Lee High School next year before they are fully implemented in county high schools. “We want to do things that are different,” Fleming said, adding that the labs enhance science education and students’ teamwork because it forces pupils to work together at the lab stations. In addition to education components of the America COMPETES bill, the legislation is expected to increase federal funding for science research and development. Democratic and Republican lawmakers are still hammering out the details of the legislation in Congress this week.

8A / Tuesday, May 18, 2010 / The Sanford Herald GENERAL ASSEMBLY


Senate budget will permit teacher furloughs

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed education budget unveiled Monday would cut less deeply next year compared to changes sought by Gov. Beverly Perdue but would allow local school districts to furlough teachers and use lottery funds as a last resort to prevent layoffs. The education plan, part of the roughly $19 billion full budget bill the full Senate is expected to vote on by the end of the week, would allow districts to require employees to take up to two days off without pay, said Sen. A.B. Swindell, D-Nash, one of the Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief budget writers. Several school districts, including Charlotte-Mecklenburg, have asked for that authority from the General Assembly. Swindell also said the bill would allow the districts to use some of their state lottery money on teacher salaries to prevent layoffs. The use of the lottery funds would represent a

departure from the 2005 law that limits net proceeds from the games be used only to hire teachers to keep class sizes down in early grades, teach at-risk 4-yearold, build new schools and provide need-based college scholarships. Swindell said the change would only be for next year and would only apply to additional lottery profits that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t projected in the current budget. The lottery is expected to generate $73 million more in profits next year than previously projected. The public schools and health and human services would take the biggest hits in the budget proposal, or an additional $624 million in spending cuts beyond whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already required in the budgetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second year starting July 1. Dozens of state offices are seeing cuts of 5 percent or more. State salaries for public schoolteachers and state employees would remain frozen for

a second straight year. The changes are designed to narrow a projected budget gap of $800 million to $1 billion caused by flagging state revenues. The whole Senate budget committee is scheduled to debate the full budget bill Tuesday. While the Senate plan doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eliminate a requirement that school districts locate another $80 million in cuts, budget writers declined to accept Perdueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request to expand the socalled â&#x20AC;&#x153;management flexibilityâ&#x20AC;? reductions by another $135 million. But several other school expenses were decreased further. Local school districts would see a 9 percent cut to run their central offices, nearly 5 percent less for assistant principals and a 21 percent cut for teams of nurses and social workers that assist at-risk children. Overall, public schools would see a 3 percent reduction, or about $219

million less to a budget of $7.1 billion. Perdue had recommended a reduction of 3.5 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very pleased there there are no additional management flexibility cuts,â&#x20AC;? said Leanne Winner, a lobbyist for the North Carolina School Boards Association, but other reductions are â&#x20AC;&#x153;going to affect how schools operate and how we deliver education to children.â&#x20AC;? The University of North Carolina system essentially saw spending remain flat and the community college system saw a 5 percent increase to pay for a surge of students seeking to be retrained or find new careers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to say that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy with a budget that reduces education,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Richard Stevens, R-Wake, co-chair of the Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget subcommittee that approved the education plan Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a better budget than it was.â&#x20AC;?

Panel worried by spike in infant deaths

RAEFORD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rescue workers on Monday were assessing the damage to a North Carolina mobile home community after severe thunderstorms blew through the area. The storms struck Sunday night at the Willow Trace mobile home park near Raeford. American Red Cross regional executive director Barry Porter said 41 of the 48 park residences were affected. Nine homes were destroyed, while others had only broken windows and lost electrical service, Porter said. Mobile homes are vulnerable to high winds because they are elevated and often are not anchored to the ground, he said. Lodging was provided Sunday evening and is being arranged for Monday evening, as well.

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The number of North Carolina children who died from sudden infant death syndrome spiked in 2008, and advocates donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a clear explanation why. The state Child Fatality Task Force released its annual report on Monday. Most of the data was known last fall, but the report combines the numbers with specific recommendations for action. In particular, the task force wants the General Assembly to preserve funding levels for programs like Back to Sleep, which helps educate parents about SIDS. The report found that the number of SIDS deaths jumped by 39 percent between 2007 and 2008, rising from 98 to 136.

profiting, but that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kept a woman convicted of killing her husband from spending the estate he amassed during their marriage. Penny Dierickx, 57, accepted a second-degree murder conviction last week, two days after her trial began in Johnston County, The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Monday. But because of the plea she struck, her daughterin-law, Jennifer Dierickx,

fears some of the protections granted to the estates of those murdered by a loved one may be undermined. Penny Dierickx accepted whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called an Alford plea, which allows her to maintain her innocence while acknowledging that the state had enough evidence to convict her. Jennifer Dierickx filed a wrongful death lawsuit against her stepmother soon after her father was killed in December 2006,

hoping it will clarify North Carolina laws which grant some property rights to those who kill their spouse even while the ban on benefits aims to prevent a killer from collecting life insurance payments. Jennifer Dierickx suspects sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be forced to convince a jury of her stepmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guilt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I resent that this is an unanswered question,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will be fighting hard to make sure she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t profit from my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death.â&#x20AC;? In the 3 1/2 years since Larry Dierickxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, Penny Dierickx spent more than $400,000 of the money they shared.

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A federal safety law has led some North Carolina counties to close their public pools and could keep hundreds more from opening this summer. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that state officials are enforcing the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act, which helps protect children from injuring themselves in public pool drains. The act is named after the 7-year-old granddaughter of former Secretary of State James Baker, who drowned in 2002 when she was caught in a hot tub drain. The law requires grates designed to prevent body parts and jewelry from being sucked into drains.

Weddings fill beach house at $24,500 a week

COROLLA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A new beach-front getaway on North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Outer Banks is nearly booked for the entire season despite its peak price of $24,500 a week. The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk, Va., reported the mini-hotel cost $1.5 million to build on a 10-acre oceanfront lot near Corolla. The realty company that manages the property says the 23-bedroom, 27bathroom house already is nearly fully booked into November. The house was built to accommodate large parties of people for events such as weddings.

Detox centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff faulted in alleged assault GREENVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An investigation at a state-run drug treatment center in North Carolina finds its staff was negligent by failing to protect a female patient who said she was sexually assaulted by a male patient. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Monday that police werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t called to the Walter B. Jones Alcohol and Drug Abuse Treatment Center in Greenville for more than four hours. The incident resulted in misdemeanor charges of sexual battery and assault on a female against a 34-year-old Wilson man. More than 530 incidents of patient abuse and neglect have been confirmed by investigations at 13 state-run mental hospitals, homes for the developmentally disabled or substanceabuse treatment centers since January 2009.

Court: Juveniles must have chance for parole

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Supreme Court took two cracks at one of the lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thorniest questions Monday: When can you lock up a prisoner and throw away the key? Not when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a teenager who hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t killed anyone, the justices said. But when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sexually dangerousâ&#x20AC;? inmate, maybe so, even if he has completed his federal prison sentence. By a 5-4 vote, the court said young people serving life prison terms must have â&#x20AC;&#x153;a meaningful opportunity to obtain releaseâ&#x20AC;? if they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t killed their victims. The majority opinion by Justice Anthony Kennedy extended the â&#x20AC;&#x153;children are differentâ&#x20AC;? rationale that drove his decision five years ago that outlawed the death penalty for killers under 18. The court ruled in the case of Terrance Graham, who was implicated in armed robberies when he was 16 and 17. Graham, now 23, is in prison in Florida, which holds 60 percent of juvenile defendants who are locked up for life for crimes other than homicide.

Treasury: Chrysler will pay back less than half of loan WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Treasury Department said Monday it will lose $2.1 billion on a loan made to Chrysler in early 2009. Taxpayer losses from bailing out Chrysler and General Motors are expected to rise as high as $34 billion, congressional auditors say. Treasury said Monday that it had received a $1.9 billion repayment from Chrysler Holding, which emerged from bankruptcy last year, and that was all it expected to recover. The original loan was made to Chrysler LLC on Jan. 2, 2009, by the Bush administration. At the time, the government was scrambling to provide emergency support to both Chrysler and GM and their auto financing arms. The Congressional Budget Office estimated in March that the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $85 billion bailout of automakers would cost taxpayers $34 billion. Much of it will depend on how much the government recovers from its eventual sale of nearly 61 percent of GM and about 10 percent of Chrysler.

GOP, Democrats test themes for fall in Pennsylvania

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For all the primaries testing tea party clout and veteran senatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to survive, a special House election in southwestern Pennsylvania is the multimillion-dollar battleground of choice Tuesday for the two political parties, previewing themes for a fall campaign shadowed by recession and voter discontent. Competing economic prescriptions, the appeal of President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care legislation, the Republicansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to woo crossover support from independents and Democrats all are at issue, according to officials in both parties, in a race that also features a struggle for the political high ground as Washington outsider. The House race features Republican Tim Burns against Democrat Mark Critz to fill out the final few months in the term of the late Democratic Rep. John Murtha. But the two national parties made it

Court grants asylum to Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s African aunt CLEVELAND (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A U.S. immigration court has granted asylum to President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s African aunt, allowing her to stay in the country and setting her on the road to citizenship after years of legal wrangling, her attorneys announced Monday. The decision was made by a judge in U.S. Immigration Court in Boston and mailed out Friday. It comes three months after Kenya native Zeituni Onyango, the half-sister of Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s late father, testified at a closed hearing in Boston. People who seek asylum must show that they face persecution in their homeland on the basis of religion, race, nationality, political opinion or membership in a social group.

ROBERT, La. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; With BP finally gaining some control over the amount of oil spewing into the Gulf of Mexico, scientists are increasingly worried that huge plumes of crude already spilled could get caught in a current that would carry the mess all the way to the Florida Keys and beyond, damaging coral reefs and killing wildlife. Scientists said the oil will move into the socalled loop current soon if it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already, though they could not say exactly when or how much there would be. Once it is in the loop, it could take 10 days or longer to reach the Keys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a question of when,â&#x20AC;? said Peter Ortner, a University of Miami oceanographer. In the month since an offshore drilling platform exploded, killing 11 workers, BP has struggled to stop the leak, trying in vain to activate emergency valves and lowering a 100-ton box that got clogged with icy crystals. Over the weekend, the oil company finally succeeded in using a stopperand-tube combination to siphon some of the gushing oil into a tanker, but millions of gallons are already in the Gulf. The loop current is a ribbon of warm water that begins in the Gulf of Mexico and wraps around Florida. Some scientists project the current will draw the crude through the Keys and then up Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Atlantic Coast, where the oil might avoid the beaches of Miami and Fort Lauderdale but could wash up around Palm Beach. Many scientists expect the oil to get no farther north than Cape Canaveral, midway up the coast,

the loop current, while a second model showed the oil was three miles from it. Mike Sole, Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental protection secretary, said the edge could still be two to 18 miles away. BP said it is having some success with a milelong tube that is funneling a little more than 42,000 gallons of crude a day from the well into a tanker ship. That would be about a fifth of the 210,000 gallons the company estimated is gushing out each day, though scientists who have studied video of the leak say it could be much bigger. Crews will slowly increase how much they are collecting over the next few days. They need to move slowly to prevent the formation of the icelike crystals that doomed the effort to lower a big concrete-and-steel box over the blown-out well. BP initially said it hoped the system would capture most of the leaking oil, but Suttles said Monday that officials would be pleased if the tube eventually sucks up half of it. The siphoning is not a permanent solution. BP is preparing to shoot a mixture known as drilling mud into the well later this week in a procedure called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;top-killâ&#x20AC;? that would take several weeks but, if successful, would stop the flow altogether.

An undated photo provided by NOAA shows a shallowwater coral reef with sea fans, soft corls, and boulder starcoral in the Florida Keys. before it is carried out to sea and becomes more and more diluted. The pollution could endanger Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoreline mangroves, seagrass beds and the third-longest barrier reef in the world, the 221-mile-long Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, which helps draw millions of snorkelers, fishermen and other tourists whose dollars are vital to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy. Pollutants can smother and kill corals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; living creatures that excrete a hard exterior skeleton â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or can hinder their ability to reproduce and grow. That, in turn, could harm thousands of species of exotic and colorful fish and other marine life that live in and around reefs. In other developments: n Chris Oynes, who oversees offshore drilling programs at the federal Minerals Management Service, will retire at the end of the month, becoming the Interior Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first casualty of the disaster. Oynes has been criticized as too cozy with the oil industry. n The White House will establish a presidential commission to investigate

the spill, according to an administration official speaking of condition of anonymity. n California Sen. Barbara Boxer and other Democrats are calling on the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation. n BP said it has spent $500 million on the spill so far. n The oil company said it will never again try to produce oil from the well, though it did not rule out drilling elsewhere in the reservoir. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The right thing to do is permanently plug this well, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we will do,â&#x20AC;? said Doug Suttles, BP chief operating officer. William Hogarth, dean of the University of South Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College of Marine Science, said one computer model showed oil had already entered

Auto dealers fight to avoid new rules By JIM KUHNHENN Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18,000 auto dealers are trying to cut themselves a deal in the Senate, seeking exemption from proposed consumer regulations that would police how they write car loans. The Obama administration is pushing back, using the Pentagon to make the case that soldiers are particularly vulnerable to high interest car loan schemes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one counts the car dealers out,â&#x20AC;? said Ed Mierzwinski, consumer program director at U.S. PIRG, a consumer advocacy group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The car dealers are like the small banks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they are everywhere.â&#x20AC;? The dealers argue that when it comes to lending to car buyers, they are mere intermediaries for financial institutions that ultimately process and service the loans. In waging this fight, they stand between the president and the success of a vast rewrite of financial regulations that Obama is determined to sign into law. A House version of the bill already excludes auto dealers from new consumer financial rules. By standing firm now, the administration hopes the Senate version prevails. The debate over a special carve out for auto dealers, who have a high visibility in their local communities, comes as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., seeks to wrap up debate over the broader regulatory overhaul later this week. Reid planned to seek a vote to end debate on Wednesday, which would require 60 votes

Chevrolet 2010 Impalas sit at a Chevrolet dealership in Aurora, Colo. to pass. If successful, the Senate would have until Friday to dispatch remaining issues. Beside the auto dealersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; exception, senators must still work out differences over how to regulate complex securities known as derivatives and decide whether to toughen provisions in the bill that would restrict the ability of banks to engage in speculative trades with their own accounts. Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., is leading the effort for the dealers with an amendment that would specifically carve them out of the billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consumer protections provisions. While the American auto industry is reeling economically, the last thing dealers need is additional regulations, their allies argue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If a dealer is acting more as a passthrough between the consumer and the bank, simply adding more burdensome regulations on the dealer will only make it more expensive for the consumer,â&#x20AC;? said Bailey Wood of the National Automobile Dealers Association. Auto dealers, however,

HEADACHES Within a matter of several weeks, the treatment my son received at Ammons Chiropractic ended his severe headaches. All through childhood, my son experienced occasional headaches, usually occurring suddenly, and sometimes severe enough that sleep provided the only relief. At age 15, he began to have headaches more frequently, sometimes several times in a day, and three to four times a week. Conventional medical blood tests revealed no clues, an eye exam and an MRI showed nothing abnormal, but the headaches continued. My son could feel a difference seconds after the ďŹ rst treatment, and within two weeks experienced no more of the debilitating head pain. He also has peace of mind instead of fear of a headache striking at any time. After seeing the beneďŹ ts to my son, I also received orthogonal treatment for neck pain and tightness, a sensation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;crimpingâ&#x20AC;? that I never seemed able to stretch out, and which had plagued me for probably 25 years. One treatment was all it took to relieve the neck tightness â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and after a year, my neck remains comfortable and correctly aligned. Ammons Chiropractic personnel are consummate professionals, careful, methodical, gentle and absolutely committed to seeking solutions.

still make money from the loans. Consumer advocates argue thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough to place them under extra scrutiny. The Pentagon has been especially aggressive in opposing an exemption for auto dealers, initiating its campaign after the House agreed to exclude dealers from its bill. In February, Undersecretary of Defense Clifford Stanley wrote to the Treasury saying that nearly three out of four military financial counselors in â&#x20AC;&#x153;informal, nonscientific pollingâ&#x20AC;? reported that they advised service members on issues related to abusive auto financing. Last week, Brownback wrote Stanley asking him for details on the reports from the military financial counselors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is it the position of the department that auto dealers pose a specific threat to military readiness?â&#x20AC;? Brownback wrote. Army Secretary John McHugh weighed in with a letter last week to Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., voicing his objection to Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amendment. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the first time McHugh and Brownback have been on opposing sides. Last year, Brownback and fellow Kansas Republican Sen. Pat Roberts both temporarily blocked McHugh from

becoming Army secretary, objecting at the time to the prospect of terror suspect detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, being sent to their home state. Holly Petraeus, wife of U.S. Central Command chief Gen. David Petraeus, also joined the fight. As director of the Council of Better Business Bureauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Military Line Program, she reiterated Stanleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assertions that many service members are in financial trouble with their auto payments, locked into loans with interest rates of 15 percent or higher. Consumer advocates have embraced the Pentagonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role, saying it has kept the vote margin closer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before the Pentagonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full effort, we got clobbered in the House,â&#x20AC;? Mierzwinski said. Still, nervous about the dealersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; strength, Reid has demanded that Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amendment be subject to a 60-vote majority this week. Dealers maintain they already are well-regulated at the state level and that extra regulations will simply create additional costs that would be passed on to consumers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For auto dealers, where financing is hardest to come by in rural towns in small America, this would, in fact, be a direct hit on their business,â&#x20AC;? Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., said. The exception they seek would not affect businesses such as Carmax, which sell cars and provide their own financing. Those dealerships still would fall under the new consumer regulations, as would giant lenders such as GMAC. Dodd has argued that even in assembling financing for customers, car dealers should not escape the same regulations as others who help write loans.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Abortion opponents fought passage of President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care overhaul to the bitter end, and now that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the law, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using it to limit coverage by private insurers. An obscure part of the law allows states to restrict abortion coverage by private plans operating in new insurance markets. Capitalizing on that language, abortion foes have succeeded in passing bans that, in some cases, go beyond federal statutes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider elective abortion to be health care, so we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad thing for fewer private insurance companies to cover it,â&#x20AC;? said Mary Harned, attorney for Americans United for Life, a national organization that wrote a model law for the states. Abortion rights supporters are dismayed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Implementation of this reform should be about increasing access to health care and increasing choices, not taking them away,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., a member of the Senate leadership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Health care reform is not an excuse to take rights away from women.â&#x20AC;?

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The number of homeowners dropping out of the Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main mortgage assistance plan is growing, and is now almost equal to the number who have received permanent relief. More than 299,000 homeowners had received permanent loan modifications as of last month, the Treasury Department said Monday. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about 25 percent of the 1.2 million who started the program since its March 2009 launch. They are paying, on average, $516 less each month. However, the number of people who started the process but failed to get their mortgages permanently modified rose dramatically in April. To complete the program, borrowers must make at least three payments on time. About 277,000 homeowners, or 23 percent of those enrolled, have dropped out during this trial phase. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up from about 155,000 a month earlier. Many borrowers are still stuck in limbo, unable to complete the process and caught up in a bewildering bureaucracy, housing advocates say. Among those who have completed the program, 3,744 borrowers, or 1.3 percent, have dropped out, up from about 2,900 a month earlier. Most of those borrowers likely defaulted on their modified loans, but a handful either refinanced or sold their homes.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;THE FIRST 48â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Atty: Video shows police fired into home Arab-Americans

DETROIT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Police who carried out a raid on a family home that left a 7year-old girl dead over the weekend were accompanied by a camera crew for a reality television show, and an attorney says video of the siege contradicts the police account of what happened. Geoffrey Fieger, an attorney for the family of young Aiyana Jones, said he has seen three or four minutes of video of the raid, although he declined to say whether it was shot by the crew for the A&E series â&#x20AC;&#x153;The First 48,â&#x20AC;? which has been shadowing Detroit homicide detectives for months. Police have said officers threw a flash grenade through the first-floor window of the two-family home, and that an officerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gun discharged, killing the girl, during a struggle or after colliding with the girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandmother inside the home. But Fieger said the video shows an officer lobbing the grenade and then shooting into the home from the porch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no question about what happened because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the videotape,â&#x20AC;? Fieger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an accident. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a mistake. There was no altercation.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aiyana Jones was shot from outside on the porch. The videotape shows clearly the officer throwing

A&E spokesman Dan Silberman said neither he nor anyone else from the network would comment about the case, and he denied a request by The Associated Press for the footage. Detroit police were trying to obtain the film crewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s footage, Assistant Chief Ralph Godbee said Monday. Fieger said the investigation into what happened during the raid â&#x20AC;&#x153;needed to go no further than the videotape.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The videotape shows clearly that the assistant police chief and the officers on the scene are engaging in an intentional

cover up of the events,â&#x20AC;? Fieger said. He said more than one camera was recording at the scene, and that the footage includes sound. Police arrested the target of the raid, a 34year-old man suspected of killing a 17-year-old boy, in the upstairs unit in the two-family home. Police had warrants to search both properties, and family members of the slain girl were seen going in and out of both on Monday. The suspect has not been charged, and it was not immediately clear what relationship he had to the slain girl. The case has been handed over to the Michigan State Police to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said Monday.

Some, including the slain girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family and others, have questioned what effect the cameras may have had on the tactics used during raid on the home, which had toys strewn about the front lawn on Monday. The police department is understaffed, and officers have said they feel vulnerable â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially after one patrolman was killed and four others were wounded during a gunfight with a suspect in a vacant home earlier this month. Two prominent criminal defense attorneys said they were unaware of past instances when Detroit police used flash grenades in raids when children were possibly present. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new one,â&#x20AC;? said Detroit lawyer Corbett Edge Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Meara. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That does seem to be a pretty extreme measure. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprise me that the police had no concern whether they were endangering the lives of children when they made this raid.â&#x20AC;? Attorney Marvin Barnett was more blunt: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never heard that before in my entire career, that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve thrown a flash bomb in a house unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got an armed suspect and you know there is nobody else in the house.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to know who gave the order to do that,â&#x20AC;? Barnett said.

take delight in pageant victory By JOCELYN NOVECK AP National Writer

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Donald Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Miss USA pageant sure knows how to make headlines. Arab-Americans rejoiced Monday over the crowning of raven-haired beauty Rima Fakih, a 24year-old Lebanese immigrant from Michigan, calling it a victory for diversity in the United States, especially at a time when Arabs suffer from negative stereotypes in this country â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and anti-immigrant sentiment is in the news. Meanwhile, some harsh critics wondered if Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Miss USA organization was trying to send a message, sniping that the victory amounted to â&#x20AC;&#x153;affirmative action,â&#x20AC;? or implying the first runner-up, Miss Oklahoma USA, suffered unfairly because of an answer she gave supporting Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new immigration law. All this comes, of course, a year after 2009 runner-up Carrie Prejean and her views on gay marriage dominated the headlines. Suddenly it seemed like the pageant had become a battleground, albeit in bikinis and flesh-baring gowns, for the hot-button political and social issues of

the day. If all that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough, photos emerged of Fakih pole-dancing in skimpy shorts and a tank top in a radio show contest in 2007. The showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s producers said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been contacted by representatives of the Miss Universe contest requesting more photographs and information. But the show also noted â&#x20AC;&#x201D; correctly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that the photos were no more provocative than anything on the Miss USA website. In any case, ArabAmericans were elated by the victory of Fakih, who was born into a powerful Shiite family in southern Lebanon and whose family said they celebrate both the Muslim and Christian faiths. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With all the stigma that goes around â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially after 9/11 and how people portray Muslims and Arab-Americans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a great way to knock down all those barriers,â&#x20AC;? said Dewnya Bakri-Bazzi, 22, a Muslim law student from Dearborn, Mich., who uptated her Facebook status to read, â&#x20AC;&#x153;woot woot who knows maybe I can be the next Miss America?â&#x20AC;?

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, center, his Brazilian counterpart Luis Inacio Lula da Silva, left, and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, right, talk before signing an agreement to ship most of Iran’s enriched uranium to Turkey in a nuclear fuel swap deal, in Tehran, Iran, Monday. “a full nuclear fuel cycle, including enrichment activities for peaceful purposes” and condemned any new sanctions against Iran. Both countries are important for Washington — Brazil is South America’s largest nation and has a dominant role on the continent, while Turkey, a key NATO ally and a traditional regional U.S. mainstay, has moved to develop an increasingly independent voice. While they have no Security Council veto, both are skeptical of the U.S.-led drive for a fourth set of Security Council sanctions to punish Tehran’s refusal to stop its enrichment activities. And the Iranian maneuver could weaken growing resolve by Russia and China — which do have veto power — to support new sanctions.

Iran agrees to get rid of uranium

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran agreed Monday to ship much of its low-enriched uranium abroad and then rolled out a new obstacle to nuclear compromise by insisting it would press ahead with higher enrichment — bringing it closer to being able to make atomic warheads. The deal forged with Turkey and Brazil appeared to be another attempt to stave off U.N. sanctions — a doubtful endeavor judging by reactions from the United States and other Western powers. The White House showed deep skepticism about the pact, warning it still allows Iran to keep enriching uranium toward the pursuit of a nuclear weapon. “Given Iran’s repeated failure to live up to its own commitments, and the need to address fundamental issues related to Iran’s nuclear program, the United States and international community continue to have serious concerns,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said. Still, by involving Turkey and Brazil, Iran ramped up the pressure on Washington over additional U.N. sanctions. The deal moves these two influential Security Council members closer to Tehran and presents the U.S. and its Western allies with a bloc of developing nations that back Iran’s right to pursue a nuclear program. In announcing the accord, Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim and his Turkish counterpart, Ahmet Davutoglu, said Tehran has the right to

Moscow and Beijing were responsible for watering down the language of previous anti-Iran sanctions but appeared to swing behind the U.S., Britain and France recently. The deal announced Monday calls for Iran to ship 1,200 kilograms (2,640 pounds) of low-enriched uranium to Turkey, where it would be stored. In exchange, Iran would receive, within one year, higher-enriched fuel rods to be used in a U.S.-built medical research reactor. The pact mirrors a swap proposed last October in which Iran would have shipped the same amount of low-enriched uranium to Russia in exchange for higher-enriched material for its research reactor. That deal fell apart over Tehran’s insistence that the swap take place on Iranian soil. On its face, the latest plan seems a significant

concession, with Iran agreeing to ship its material to be stored in Turkey and wait up to a year for higher-enriched uranium from France and Russia. However, Iran is believed to have much more nuclear material stockpiled now. In October, swapping 1,200 kilograms (2,640 pounds) would have left Iran with less than the 1,000 kilograms (2,200 pounds) of material needed to produce enough weapons-grade uranium for a bomb. Since then, Iran has continued to churn out low-enriched material and started enriching uranium to an even higher level — from 3.5 percent to near 20 percent. While Tehran insists it has no nuclear arms ambitions, it could produce weapons grade uranium much more quickly from the 20 percent level. In March, the International Atomic Energy Agency said Iran’s stockpile stood at around 2,100 kilograms (4,600 pounds). It has likely grown to an estimated 2,300 kilograms — about 5,000 pounds, or more than twice the amount needed to produce enough material for a bomb, according to David Albright of the Washingtonbased Institute for Science and International Security, which has tracked Iran for signs of covert proliferation. From the West’s point of view, that destroys much of the incentive for an agreement — and Iran’s decision to continue its program to enrich to near 20 percent poses an even greater hurdle.

Iraq: al-Qaida plotting attack on World Cup

U.S. missionary convicted in Haiti, but free to go

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi security forces have detained an al-Qaida militant suspected of planning an attack targeting the World Cup in South Africa next month, an official said Monday. Maj. Gen. Qassim alMoussawi, a spokesman for Baghdad security services, said Abdullah Azam Saleh al-Qahtani was an officer in the Saudi army. He is suspected of planning a “terrorist act” in South Africa during the World Cup beginning June 11, al-Moussawi told a news conference in Baghdad. He said al-Qahtani entered Iraq in 2004 and is suspected in several attacks in the capital and elsewhere in the country. In South Africa, a police spokesman said Iraq has not notified them of the arrest. “We have not received any official reports from them,” Vish Naidoo told The Associated Press. “Whatever arrest they made there, they know, we don’t know anything about it.”

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — The last of 10 Americans detained while trying to take 33 children out of Haiti following the Jan. 12 earthquake was released Monday after a judge convicted her and sentenced her to the time she had already served in jail. Laura Silsby, the organizer of the ill-fated effort to take the children to an orphanage being set up in the Dominican Republic, returned to her jail cell briefly to retrieve belongings before quickly heading to the Port-au-Prince airport. “I’m praising God,” Silsby told The Associated Press as she waited for a flight out of Haiti. She declined further questions. The Idaho businesswoman had been in custody since Jan. 29. She was originally charged with kidnapping and criminal association. Those charges were dropped and she was convicted of arranging illegal travel under a 1980 statute restricting movement out of Haiti signed by then-dictator JeanClaude Duvalier.

Red Shirts offer cease-fire to end Bangkok battles BANGKOK (AP) — The Thai government said Monday it would accept a cease-fire offer from a “Red Shirt” protest leader if their fighters end raging street battles and return to their main camp in central Bangkok, as the death toll from five days of violence rose to 37. The offer was made by Red Shirt leader Nattawut Saikuwa, who called the government’s chief negotiator, Korbsak Sabhavasu, on his cell phone, Korbsak said. It was the first direct talks between the two sides since the fighting started Thursday, but Korbsak said it was unlikely to achieve much as the two sides still remained far apart. Nattawut’s response was not immediately known. Calls to his phone went unanswered.

British officials relax safety rules over ash LONDON (AP) — Aviation authorities introduced relaxed flight safety rules Monday to minimize more disruptions caused by a volcano eruption in Iceland, as three of Europe’s busiest airports reopened after a dense volcanic ash cloud dissipated. Britain’s Civil Aviation Authority said it agreed with airlines, regulators and engine manufacturers on new rules that would let planes fly for a limited time through higher ash densities than currently allowed. The rules — which go into effect midday Tuesday — are subject to airlines getting a guarantee from their engine makers that their aircraft can safely tolerate the ash. The body said that so far British budget carrier Flybe was the only airline that satisfied those conditions, but it expected other airlines to follow soon and European authorities to introduce similar rules.

CUBS GM SAYS LOU PINIELLA’S JOB IS SAFE CHICAGO (AP) — Despite the Chicago Cubs’ disappointing start, GM Jim Hendry says he’s “never given any thought” about replacing manager Lou Piniella. “I’m absolutely, completely confident in Lou Piniella,” Hendry said before Monday night’s game against Colorado. “I have complete faith in the coaching staff, also. No intention of making any changes at all.” Chicago reporters asked Hendry about Piniella’s job status because some national media have begun speculating that the manager could be in trouble if the Cubs don’t improve markedly. Piniella guided Chicago to NL Central titles in his first two seasons but the team went 83-78 last year. The Cubs are only 16-22 this season even though they have played almost exclusively against clubs that had losing records in 2009.

SANFORD — Jon Lineberry is going to Guilford College. The Lee Christian point guard recently signed his letter of intent to play college basketball for the Quakers next season. Lineberry led the Falcons to a 9-10 record this season and averaged 14.2 points per game and 7.3 assists per contest. The senior says that playing college basketball is something that he’s wanted to do ever since he was little. “It feels like a dream come true,”

said Lineberry. “I never thought I’d get a chance to play college basketball. I’m excited about this opportunity to play for a great program like Guilford.” Lineberry, who also had interest in Campbell, Pfeiffer and Methodist, chose Guilford because of its strong basketball tradition. In the past four years, the Quakers have a record of 119-12 and have been to the NCAA Division III Final Four in the last two years. Lineberry, who finishes his career as Lee Christian’s all-time

No excuse for skipping Hall of Fame induction By JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

GOLF WOODS ADDS BRITISH TO PLAYING SCHEDULE ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods has added the British Open to his summer schedule. Woods has a chance to become the first player in the 150-year history of the British Open to win three times at St. Andrews, where golf’s oldest championship will be held July 15-18. He added the British Open to the schedule on his website Monday. Woods, who withdrew from the final round of The Players Championship on May 9 with a neck injury, also has the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach and the AT&T National at Aronimink on his schedule. He has yet to enter the Memorial, where he is the defending champion. ASHLEY GARNER/The Sanford Herald

GOLF SCOTT EARNS FIRST TOUR WIN SINCE 2008 SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Deep in the heart of Texas, Adam Scott only saw Australia. Harsh scrubland off the fairways that reminded him of Brisbane and sandbelt greens that looked like home. “I had a feeling Aussies would do well here this week,” Scott said. None better than him. Rallying from four strokes back for his first PGA Tour victory in two years, Scott was 11 under in a 36-hole Sunday finale at the Texas Open, edging Frederik Jacobson by a stroke on the new Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio. The course was designed by Scott’s hero, fellow countrymen Greg Norman, who sent a congratulatory message after Scott’s first win since the Australian Open in December.

After tragedy, Yellow Jackets return to field By RYAN SARDA

SANFORD — This is what Josh would have wanted. Despite the tragic death of Lee County High School student Josh Britt, the Yellow Jacket baseball team is still planning on taking the field against Richmond County in the second round of the NCHSAA 4-A East state tournament at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Rockingham. Before practice on Monday,

Yellow Jacket head coach Charlie Spivey and his team held a prayer for Britt and his family and close friends. Because of how emotional the entire day was for the Yellow Jacket players and coaches, Spivey decided to keep practice light and tried as hard as he could to keep the team focused on baseball. “The kids were emotional all

CHARLOTTE — The NASCAR Hall of Fame opened its doors with a star-studded ceremony showcasing many of its stars. Retired champions Dale Jarrett, Darrell Waltrip and Rusty Wallace sat on stage alongside current drivers Greg Biffle, Kurt Busch and Bobby Labonte. Heavyweight team owners Rick Hendrick and Richard Childress flanked NASCAR chairman Brian France, while Joe Gibbs watched from the audience. The ceremony ended after NASCAR pioneers Richard Petty and Junior Johnson drove replicas of their old cars onto the plaza. The only two living members of the incoming inaugural five-member class, Johnson and Petty received a standing ovation. It was a fitting close to a celebratory day for the sport. But for a few moments, as security cleared the plaza for Petty and Johnson’s arrival, there was a quiet murmur that perhaps NASCAR’s current stars were about to arrive. Missing from last week’s events were Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Tony Stewart and Dale Earnhardt Jr. — the “big dogs” of today’s NASCAR. Gordon, Johnson, Stewart and Matt Kenseth were the only four active Cup champions missing from the ceremony. Earnhardt, NASCAR’s most popular driver and a two-time champion in NASCAR’s second-tier series, wasn’t there despite the upcoming induction of his father. Their absence did not go unnoticed. Petty, a seven-time champion and NASCAR’s all-time winningest driver, thought

ACC, ESPN agree to 12-year deal By BRYAN STRICKLAND

DURHAM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The ACC appears to have scored a major victory for the financial future of its member schools, reportedly reaching a television deal that should double the amount of money that each receives from the invaluable revenue source on a yearly basis. The conference and ESPN have struck a 12-

year deal for $1.86 billion, according to the Sports Business Journal. The deal, which combines football and basketball broadcast rights for the first time, dwarfs the ACCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current deals that expire after the upcoming season. The league is finishing up a seven-year, $258 million deal for football and a 10-year, $370 million deal for basketball that pays each member school ap-

proximately $6.2 million a year. The new deal averages out to $12.9 million a year to each school. The SEC still is setting the standard with its 15-year, $3 billion deal with ESPN and CBS that pays each school approximately $16.7 million a year, and Big Ten schools got roughly $15.7 million apiece in 2009, a figure that could change annually based on Big Ten Network profits and

that presumably would go down if the league expands. The ACC deal, however, far exceeds current deals in place for the Big 12 ($6.6 million) and the Pac10 ($5.3 million). The ACCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current deal for basketball belongs to Raycom Sports while the football deal belongs to ESPN, with the networks paying each other for broadcast rights for select games. That relationship is expected to continue, although ESPN now has ultimate control over that process.

Football and cheerleading sign-ups scheduled

SANFORD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Lee County Pop Warner Association will be conducting sign-ups from 9 a.m.-to-noon on May 22 at the Central Carolina Community College gym. Parents need to bring a copy of their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birth certificate. The cost of participation for tackle football and cheerleading is $65 and flag football is $15.00. 


Sanford Dolphins to hold two camps

SANFORD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Sanford Dolphins Swim Team will be hosting two summer swim camps in June. The first camp runs from 12:30-to-3:45 p.m. from June 14-18 and the second is June 21-25 from 12:30-to-3:45 p.m. The camps will be held at the Sanford Nautilus and refreshments will be provided.

NBA Playoffs

The Sanford Herald / Tuesday, May 18, 2010 / 3B NBA BRIEFS Jackson comments on Arizona law trigger protest LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson refused to criticize Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new immigration law, triggering a backlash among activists who plan a protest outside Staples Center on Monday night. Jackson was asked two weeks ago about a plan by the Phoenix Suns to wear their Los Suns jerseys during a playoff game on May 5, Cinco de Mayo. The immigration law spurred the Sunsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; decision to use the jerseys to honor Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Latino community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Am I crazy, or am I the only one that heard when the legislators said that â&#x20AC;&#x2122;we just took United States immigration law and adapted it to our state?â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jackson responded. When the reporter suggested that Arizona had usurped federal law, Jackson corrected him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not usurping, they just copied it, is what they said they did, the legislators. Then they give it some teeth to be able to enforce it.â&#x20AC;? AP photo

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo, right, falls as Orlando Magic guard Jameer Nelson, left, dribbles up court during the second half in Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference basketball finals Sunday in Orlando. Boston won 92-88 and now leads the best-of-seven series 1-0.

Magic face first adversity of playoffs against Celtics ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Play time is over. The trick shots that had become a ritual after Orlando Magic practices were gone Monday. So were the usual jokes and playful banter. They were small but telling signs of just how much has changed in the Eastern Conference finals after the Boston Celtics took homecourt advantage, shattering the Magicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playoff invincibility. Orlando will now have to overcome a loss for the first time in more than six weeks when the Magic face the resurgent Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals Tuesday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a good wake-up call for us,â&#x20AC;? forward Matt Barnes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak for everyone, but we may have been feeling ourselves too much. They kicked our tail last night, and now we have to get back to work.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty on the agenda. The Celtics swarmed Dwight Howard from the opening tip, with four different big men â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kendrick Perkins, Rasheed Wallace, Glen Davis and Kevin Garnett â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all taking turns. Boston bullied its way past the Magic in punishing fashion. Howard was held to 13 points and 12 rebounds on 3-for-10 shooting. But he also had a game-high seven turnovers, some coming at the worst of times. Bostonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scrappy play in the paint, elbows and forearms constantly jabbing, frustrated Howard again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just playing him tough,â&#x20AC;? Wallace said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The difference is Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m clean with it. Some guys who do that, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dirty with it. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re walking under you when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re shooting a jump shot. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just playing him tough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do no dirty play. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just all tough.â&#x20AC;? The ripple effect allowed the Celtics to close out fast on the Magicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potent 3-point shooters, who went cold â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially early when Boston went ahead by 20 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and never allowed to get in rhythm. Orlando shot 41 percent from the field and 22 percent from beyond the arc. The Magic, who swept

Atlanta and Charlotte in the first two rounds, havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost consecutive home games all season. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re banking on that streak continuing heading into Game 2, or their hopes of redeeming last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NBA finals loss to the Lakers could be crushed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow it to happen again,â&#x20AC;? Howard said. While the Magic are trying to prove they can overcome adversity, the Celtics are looking to regain their knockout punch. Streaky for parts of the season, the Celtics have only now started to find the defensive prowess that carried them to an NBA title two years ago. They spent the season, hobbled by injuries, dazzling one minute and baffling the next. Boston coach Doc Rivers cautioned his team not to get overly excited Monday, knowing such success hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lasted long. The Celt-

ics havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won more than four straight â&#x20AC;&#x201D; their current streak â&#x20AC;&#x201D; since they won 11 in a row before Christmas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle (winning) well all year,â&#x20AC;? Rivers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we won three or four in a row, you could count on it, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Here it comes.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a veteran team and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle it well. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a human game at the end of the day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always worry about that. I worry about us when we win one game, I really do,â&#x20AC;? Rivers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been the type of team, veteran teams usually

handle that well, we have not all year.â&#x20AC;? How the Magic will react after their first playoff setback is unknown. They cruised through the first two rounds with relative ease, beating Atlanta by the largest margin of defeat in league history. Boston, of course, is a much more proven opponent. The Celtics went ahead 65-45 in the third quarter. Even if the slow start was the rust of a six-day layoff, Magic coach Stan Van Gundy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept that as an excuse.

Kahn tries to downplay hype MINNEAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; If the Minnesota Timberwolves didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have bad luck in the NBA draft, they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any luck at all. Perhaps thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Wolves president David Kahn is downplaying the need to win the lottery this year. Kahn says if the Wolves fail again to improve their position in the annual drawing, fans should not hang their heads because the team could trade up before the June draft. The Timberwolves have the second-best odds to get the No. 1 pick on Tuesday. The farthest they can fall would be No. 5. The best odds â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at 31.85 percent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are that the team will fall to No. 4. In 12 years in the lottery, the Timberwolves have never improved their position.

With Prokhorov in front row, Nets seek lottery win NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; With their new owner sitting front row, the New Jersey Nets will have the best chance to win the NBA draft lottery. They could sure use the help. Mikhail Prokhorov will represent the Nets on stage Tuesday night in Secaucus, N.J. for the lottery, which his team has a 25 percent chance of winning after finishing with a league-worst 12-70 record. Kentucky freshman point guard John Wall is considered the top prize in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class, with player of the year Evan Turner of Ohio State also expected to go high. Team president Rod Thorn says the Nets will get a good player no matter where they end up, but adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You always want to get as high as you can, because the higher you get, the more leverage it gives you.â&#x20AC;?

New dad Ginobili welcomes twins

SAN ANTONIO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili and his wife, Many, are parents to twin boys. Ginobili, on his Twitter page, announced Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s births of Dante and Nicola. Ginobili says mother and boys are doing great, and he later added â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just changed my 1st diaper!â&#x20AC;? The Spurs were swept in the second round of the playoffs by the Phoenix Suns. Ginobili in April announced he would not play for his native Argentina this summer in the world championships in Turkey because of his pending parenthood, plus he wants to stay healthy. Ginobili spent the past two summers recovering from ankle injuries.

their absence was wrong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of these drivers that are doing pretty well today donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize what some of the guys went through to get it to this point,â&#x20AC;? Petty said last weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of us old timers look back and hope that the guys that are doing it now appreciate what the guys did who laid the groundwork.â&#x20AC;? All four champions had various reasons for missing the ceremony. Gordon cited a prior commitment and Johnson said he was on one final vacation with his wife before the couple welcomes their first child this summer. The slumping Stewart was testing with his team in Virginia, while a spokesman for Earnhardt said there had been confusion as to which events the driver was to attend. It all speaks to a large scheduling problem. NASCAR runs a 38-race schedule over 11 months that takes drivers and teams from home a minimum of three days a week. Throw in sponsor appearances, business obligations, team meetings and personal responsibilities, well, it barely leaves time for a haircut some weeks. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make skipping certain events right, though. After all, just about everyone, no matter the profession, is busy. Family, work and lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day-to-day nuances have stretched folks, and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if they drive race cars for a living. In this instance, current NASCAR drivers could choose to attend

three Hall of Fame events honoring the men who over the last six decades paved the track where they now earn their fortunes. Gordon and Johnson said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll intend this Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s induction ceremony. So will Earnhardt, who also plans to sit with his family during a Thursday night gala to honor the inductees. Stewart, according to event organizers, is not planning to attend either event. Why? Organizers said they were told the two-time champion is busy, and has places to be and things to do. In fairness to Stewart, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s far from the only driver who will miss Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s induction. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it OK. Junior Johnson, a former moonshiner who turned his ability to build a fast car and outrun the law into a legendary NASCAR career as a driver and owner, said during the opening ceremony that his inclusion in the inaugural class was â&#x20AC;&#x153;the greatest thing thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever happened to me.â&#x20AC;? Ned Jarrett, a two-time Cup champion, had tears in his eyes when he said if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever elected to the Hall, it would â&#x20AC;&#x153;be the ultimate. If I ever get in here, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be complete.â&#x20AC;? This Hall of Fame is cherished â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and long overdue â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to the hundreds of drivers who never got rich, to the mechanics who traded families for race cars, and to the owners who poured every last dime into their pursuit of Victory Lane. Without the France Family, there is no NASCAR. Without Petty, there is no Dale Earnhardt or Jeff Gordon. Without Gordon, there is no Jimmie Johnson.

There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t supposed to be any confusion about the importance of this week, either. Attending the induction and making this week spectacular was made easy for everyone when NASCAR made it the final event of All-Star Week. Festivities begin Sunday morning, hours after one driver will pick up a $1 million paycheck â&#x20AC;&#x201D; think Richard Petty might have liked an occasional $1 million payday? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for winning the All-Star race. Figuring everybody was already in town for the show, scheduling it for the next day sure seemed like a no-brainer. Alas, many will choose to spend their rare Sunday off on the lake, or with family and friends, and they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be bothered to give three hours of an off day to honor those who came before them. Maybe the Hall of Fame goofed in its scheduling, and its gala could have been held Tuesday night. Driver attendance has improved over the last several years at the Wednesday night Pit Crew Competition, so maybe the induction ceremony should be Thursday evening, when everyone is in town and has few legitimate excuses to miss the event. Or maybe it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what day the ceremony is held. Everybody at one time or another has been dragged somewhere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, Mom! I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go Aunt Myrtleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house! All my friends are going swimming!â&#x20AC;? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all begrudgingly bypassed a fun day with friends. Sometimes we do what we do â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re told â&#x20AC;&#x201D; because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right thing.

CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez understands the public would like some answers about Big Ten expansion. Just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask him. Alvarez said the decision rests with school presidents, not with the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic directors. Still, expansion was the hot-button topic Monday as conference coaches and administrators gathered in Chicago for three days of meetings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People want to know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on, but nobody has any answers for them,â&#x20AC;? Alvarez said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;None of us do, anyway.â&#x20AC;? Michigan athletic director David Brandon senses â&#x20AC;&#x153;change is in the windâ&#x20AC;? but isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure anything will happen. And Indianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tom Crean said expansion â&#x20AC;&#x153;is a topic of conversationâ&#x20AC;? even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not on the written agenda for the basketball coachesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; meetings. The Big Ten last year grabbed the attention of everyone in college sports by announcing that it was considering whether to expand from its current 11 members, a move that would extend the reach of its lucrative TV network

and add a championship football game. The timeline for any decision is said to stretch into 2011, but expansion and the potential domino effect have dominated discussions from the Big East, SEC and Big 12 to the Pac-10. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the success of the Big Ten network and the position weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in, I am sure that the powers that be will only add universities that bring value,â&#x20AC;? Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anytime you add value to a league, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be better off.â&#x20AC;?


prior to tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening pitch. Spivey feels that the best way the Yellow Jackets can honor their fallen student is by carrying him with them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know Josh would want us to play,â&#x20AC;? said Spivey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He loved the Yellow Jackets and he would want this. I also know that his family wants us to play as well. I think the best way to honor Josh is to carry him with us in our hearts. As long as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in our hearts before, during and after the game, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing our part in honoring him.â&#x20AC;? The Yellow Jackets, the No. 5 seed out of the Tri-9 Conference, are in the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2001. Lee County upset Millbrook 14-4 in the opening round last week. Still, no matter how far the Yellow Jackets go in the 2010 state tournament, because of Brittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, the team and the entire school will have a lifelong bond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of us are bonded for life now,â&#x20AC;? said Spivey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

not just the baseball team, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the entire Lee County family. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always remember who Josh was and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always be in our hearts forever.â&#x20AC;? Because of the tragedy, Spivey still hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had time to do much scouting on the Raiders. He says sometimes scouting can be to a teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disadvantage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With everything going on, I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even thought about calling anybody to try and find out about Richmond County,â&#x20AC;? said Spivey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of times, you can overscout teams and over prepare. Sometimes youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to just play and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to just play.â&#x20AC;? Brittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral will be at 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Civic Center. If todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game is canceled due to inclement weather, the game will be made up on Thursday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unless the rain washes us out, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still playing,â&#x20AC;? said Spivey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Josh would want us to do.â&#x20AC;?

general,â&#x20AC;? said Warcup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was definitely the leader of our team this year. How he went is how we went. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rare to find a player like Jon. He was a good team player that cared about the success of the team.â&#x20AC;? Warcup â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got speed and quickness and has a decent shot,â&#x20AC;? said Warcup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also good at making the right decisions with the basketball. He knows how to get the ball to the right person at the right time. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very happy for him getting a shot at the next level.â&#x20AC;? Lee Christian athletic director Eric Davidson says that Lineberryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big heart and positive attitude are

two of his best qualities that will help him succeed as a student athlete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think one of Jonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest attributes is his determination,â&#x20AC;? said Davidson, who also coached Lineberry in soccer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you can tell him that he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do something, that really motivates him and fires him up. He wants to show you that he can do it and that he will do it. I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to help him be successful at the next level.â&#x20AC;? Davidson has all the faith in the world that Lineberry will do everything he can to be successful under Guilford head coach Tom Palombo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to work extremely hard,â&#x20AC;? said Davidson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to give everything he has to that program and is going to give 110 percent to develop into a better basketball player. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very proud of how hard he has worked to get to where he is going.â&#x20AC;? Lineberry is the second Falcon to sign a letter of intent to play at the next level this year. Earlier in the year, Lee Christian soccer sensation Robert Sandidge gave a verbal commitment to play at Campbell in the fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just goes to show you that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about the size of the school,â&#x20AC;? said Davidson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the size of the heart of the student athlete. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of what both athletes have done and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited about the next group of athletes coming through. They now know that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go to a big school to play at the next level.â&#x20AC;? Lineberry remains optimistic that he can see some playing time with the Quakers in his freshman season but is just happy to be a part of the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited about my future,â&#x20AC;? said Lineberry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the ultimate dream come true for me.â&#x20AC;?

day at school,â&#x20AC;? explained Spivey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, we tried to make it pretty low key at practice. We had a devotion and a prayer before practice and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have another one before the game. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been tough on these kids and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been hard on Lee County High School.â&#x20AC;? Spivey and the Yellow Jackets all send their condolences, thoughts and prayers to the entire Britt family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our thoughts and prayers obviously go out to the Britt family,â&#x20AC;? said Spivey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a tremendous family that is. They care so much about Lee County athletics and the school in general. I know how bad theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hurting right now and I want them to know that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all here for them. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re such good people and my heart breaks for them.â&#x20AC;? The Yellow Jackets will hold a team prayer for Britt

You will eliminate your stress and move in a positive direction toward a better future. Don’t let uncertainty drag you down. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The unexpected will leave you wondering what to do next. Someone else may not like your plans or the direction you are taking but you have to do what works for you. Don’t waste time. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Detail will be your guide and picking apart what’s being done around


you or asked of you will help you make the right choice. An investment can turn out well if you do your research. A change you make now will bring you greater freedom in the future.

DEAR ABBY: I’m a divorced, middle-aged professional woman with a Ph.D. who has been keeping company with a man my age for seven years. “Burt” treats me well. He takes me out, has helped with some major home renovation projects, sends me flowers and I enjoy his company. I’m perfectly happy in his world, and I like most of his friends. On the flip side, Burt is overweight, has a drinking problem and never finished college. My problem is, I can’t bring myself to introduce him to those in my “professional circle.” I’m afraid he will say something boorish, show up drunk or otherwise embarrass me. Is there something intrinsically wrong with me that I’m ashamed to have the man I love meet people with whom I work and socialize? Is there something wrong with the relationship? — IT’S COMPLICATED IN WISCONSIN DEAR IT’S COMPLICATED: There doesn’t appear to be anything wrong with the relationship. It has worked for seven years. What’s “wrong” may be that you’re afraid you have “settled” for someone who isn’t up to the standards of those in your professional circle. If you are happy, why do you feel you must live up to someone else’s standards? Of course, this doesn’t have to be

a deal breaker. If you and Burt are a happy couple, keep your personal and professional lives separate. Many couples do. o DEAR ABBY: I am a young, single mother of two girls. I work full time and I’m involved in my daughters’ lives. I go to all their school functions, coach their soccer team, serve as the Cookie Mom for Girl Scouts and volunteer for anything else I can manage to squeeze into my schedule, but I have a hard time making friends with any other moms. None of the other mothers wants to get to know me. I wait at the bus stop with my girls and the moms talk to each other, but not to me. I get a weird “vibe” from them, as if they think I’m too young to know anything. I try to join in, but it seems they really don’t care for

me. I have friends my age, but they don’t have children. I want friends who have families because they face the same kind of issues I do. What can I do to make these moms like me? — FRIEND-CHALLENGED IN CYPRESS, TEXAS DEAR FRIEND-CHALLENGED: There is no way to “make” someone like you, and if a clique has already been established, it can be difficult to break in. It is possible that because of your youth and single status you are perceived as a threat to them — but I do have a suggestion, and your youth can be an advantage. Start asking them for advice, and it’s possible they may take you under their collective wing. o DEAR ABBY: What is the proper way to kiss after the wedding officiant says, “You may now kiss the bride”? Should the couple share a simple kiss, or can it be a little more intense? — DANIELLE IN TAMPA DEAR DANIELLE: The wedding is a time to demonstrate eternal commitment, not unbridled passion. The kiss can be as intense as you like, as long as it doesn’t last more than six seconds, and doesn’t remove the bride’s lipstick.



Doomsday safe-haven offered under Mojave Desert

Johnson says she has apologized to Brixx and is looking for a new job.

BARSTOW, Calif. (AP) — A salesman with a doomsday plan is taking money for what he promises will one day be a comfortable, nukeproof bunker in the Mojave Desert. Robert Vicino, who runs the Del Mar-based company Vivos, is already taking reservations for the bunker in Barstow. He says the 13,000square-foot underground structure will include an atrium, gym and jail on the inside and sloppy joes and pearl potatoes on the menu. Experts say the demand for bunkers is growing because of strong earthquakes, terrorism and predictions that the world will end in 2012 when the ancient Mayan calendar ends. About $50,000 will get you a spot in Vicino’s facility. He says half of the 132 spaces planned in the bunker have been reserved, and he’s still taking deposits of $5,000 for adults and $2,500 for kids. Pets are free.

NJ college valedictorian proposes to boyfriend

Waitress fired for griping about tip on Facebook CHARLOTTE (AP) — A North Carolina waitress is out of a job after griping on her Facebook page about the $5 tip she got from a couple who sat at their table for three hours. The waitress says the customers kept her at work an hour after she was supposed to clock out. The Charlotte Observer reported Monday that 22-year-old Ashley Johnson felt slighted after waiting on the couple at Brixx Pizza. So she blasted the couple on Facebook, calling them cheap and mentioning the restaurant by name. Brixx officials told Johnson a couple of days later that she was being fired because she violated a company policy banning workers from speaking disparagingly about customers and casting the restaurant in a bad light on a social network.


HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey college valedictorian had a special graduation gift for her boyfriend — a wedding proposal, which he accepted. Moments after finishing her speech Saturday at the Centenary College commencement, Emily Hawley called fellow graduate Josh Walker to the stage. She then popped the question, drawing loud roars from fellow graduates. Hawley didn’t have a ring to give Walker and didn’t get down on one knee. She tells the Daily Record newspaper of Parsippany her proposal was “nontraditional enough.” Walker admits being caught off guard but says he didn’t mind. Hawley and Walker are Maine residents who’ve dated since they were sophomores in high school seven years ago. They haven’t set a wedding date.

Vet says NY dog needs Viagra for heart condition HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (AP) — A New York animal shelter is seeking donations of Viagra to treat a pit bull with a heart condition. Staff members at the Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center in Huntington, on Long Island, say 6-year-old Ingrid needs two of the little blue pills every day or she will risk heart failure. They say a vet suggested it. The pills cost about $10 apiece, and the shelter has been asking Viagra users to pitch in and donate their unused pills. Viagra was originally developed as a heart medication but is now used mainly by men to give their sex lives a boost.

God, not addictions, comes first Q: I know we can become addicted to things like alcohol and drugs, but is it possible to become addicted to other things? My cousin spends hours and hours every day exercising, and it’s almost like an addiction with her. -- Mrs. L.P. A: Yes, psychologists tell us it certainly is possible to become addicted to almost any activity -- eating, shopping, the Internet, even exercise. When that happens, something that may be harmless or even good in itself becomes harmful, because it takes over our lives and controls us. Addictions of any kind can be hard to break; one reason is because we must first admit we have a problem. But that’s often hard to do, because the habit has become so much a part of our lives that we can’t imagine living without it. Pride gets in the way also, making us refuse to admit that what we’re doing is wrong. We fail to see that we’re not only hurting ourselves but also those who love us and need us. What can you do? First, pray for your cousin, that God will help her realize she has lost control of her life at this point. Pray too that God will help her understand that she may be using this to escape from deeper problems in her life. Then enlist family members who can encourage her to face this problem and get professional help if she needs it. The Bible says, “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). Most of all, encourage your cousin to open her heart to Jesus Christ and put Him first in her life.
