SANFORD — At least in a business sense, 2009 will not be one that most real estate agents look back on with fondness. But many national indicators suggest that there may be light at the end of the tunnel for the housing market, however dim it may be at the moment. New home construction rose a whopping 41 percent in April nationwide, according to U.S. Department of Commerce,

Friday that the jobless rate fell from 11.1 percent in March and 11.2 percent in February, the worst since the current calculation method started in 1976. The improvement pushed North Carolina out of the top 10 states with the worst unemployment. Thirty-four states and the District of Columbia reported lower jobless

rates in April, the U.S. Labor Department said Friday. There were 16,500 fewer people on North Carolina unemployment rolls in April than the previous month. The number of non-farm jobs increased by 7,500 in April. And evidence continued that

Battle brewing between telecoms, government Winston-Salem Journal

N

o law dictates that private telecommunication businesses must provide every North Carolina household and business with high-speed Internet. The companies are free to do business wherever they wish. But, 15 years after Internet use became common, the telecoms still do not provide high-speed service to much of North Carolina. They can’t expect people to wait any longer. The telecommunications industry wants the legislature to make it more difficult for local governments to offer

high-speed Internet service. The giant companies say they can’t compete with local governments in towns of a couple thousand people. Specifically, their bill would prohibit local governments from borrowing to build Internet infrastructure unless the public first voted to sell the bonds. The Journal has long argued that government borrowing without a vote of the people is both unwise and unconstitutional. But that is borrowing backed by the “full faith and credit” of the borrower, in this case, the people of the jurisdiction involved. So, if that is what the telecoms want, we support

them. But that protection is already written into the state constitution. When governments borrow for public utility infrastructure, they generally pledge as collateral only the facilities that will be built and the revenues produced by the utility involved. In these cases, that would mean the equipment needed for the Internet service and the revenues it generates. If the General Assembly were to give the telecoms what they want, they would be setting a higher standard for Internet borrowing than exists for most other government borrowing. And legisla-

tors would look hypocritical in passing such legislation because they’ve been borrowing without bond referenda for many years. The issue here is that North Carolina’s small towns and rural areas need fast Internet service so they can attract business. With high-speed Internet, people can work from home, too, thus increasing the likelihood that small Internet-based businesses can take advantage of lower costs in rural areas. Also many people currently work from home. They can move to rural areas and stay employed by urban companies if they have a high-speed Internet connection.

These communities can’t wait until it will be profitable for a private company to serve them adequately. So, using the democratic process, they are asking their local governments to establish service for them. This is reminiscent of the early 20th century when small towns in this state developed their own electrical grids rather than wait for the big utilities to do so. If the telecoms don’t want local governments to establish these Internet services, they should rush into these areas and establish service now. And the General Assembly should ignore the telecoms on this issue.

Letters to the Editor Likely we’re the ones who’ll foot the bill for BP oil spill To the Editor: Mr. Obama tells us that BP will foot the bill for the oil spill and the clean-up. Larry, Curly and Moe might believe this, but for me, due to the fact that I don’t own an electric vehicle (and for all of you who don’t either), let’s just wait and see who pays for it. If this statement would have been made on April 1, maybe there would have been justification behind it. But the last time I looked at my calendar, it was a lovely day in May. Meet me at the pumps. I’ll be the one getting $15 worth of gas hoping that’s enough to get me home and back to work.

Superb Tuesday

G

uess Mitch McConnell’s charm wasn’t enough. The Senate minority leader’s anointed man lost the Kentucky Republican Senate primary to Rand Paul, son of tea party toastmaster Texas Rep. Ron Paul. The Tuesday races went well for Democrats, less well for Republicans and still less well for McConnell. The GOP leader, who confidently keeps telling us “what the American people want,” didn’t even know what fellow Republicans wanted in his own state. A predicted Republican wave failed to materialize in late Democratic Rep. John Murtha’s district in southwestern Pennsylvania. This is one of those blue-collar districts that, according to much punditry, is ripe for Republican plunder in the November midterms. There, voters chose to replace Murtha with a former Murtha aide, Mark Critz. Furthermore, Critz won by a wide margin over Republican businessman Tim Burns. ... Americans of many political stripes were gratified by Rep. Joe Sestak’s knockout of Sen. Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania’s Democratic Senate primary. ... Party activists are of course delighted to rid themselves of the opportunistic Specter. The five-term senator became a Democrat as polls showed him trailing Rep. Pat Toomey in the state’s Republican primary race. The one person not celebrating Sestak’s win is Toomey, who once headed the “fiscally conservative” Club for Growth. Sestak is the more formidable candidate. A former admiral who saw action in Afghanistan, he can remind patriotic voters that Americans have borne far heavier burdens than paying their taxes. In Arkansas, Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln failed to secure more than half the vote in a three-person primary race and so must face state Lt. Gov. Bill Halter in a runoff. Angry at Lincoln’s cozy corporate ties, unions and liberals in Arkansas strongly backed Halter. So what does it all mean? Is anti-incumbent fever running wild? There may be some of that. But more than new faces, the electorate is demanding new ideas. Note that Rand Paul’s 11-term congressman father was his biggest draw as he campaigned in Kentucky — and for congressional term limits. One does not have to be a tea partier to appreciate the Pauls for their original thinking. ... I don’t understand all this fuss about incumbents. Some politicians serve for a long time because the voters think they’re doing a good job. Getting rid of one’s rep because Congress passed something you didn’t like makes sense only if the rep voted the wrong way. Super Tuesday did wound the myth that incumbents are invincible. That notion has discouraged many fine people from running for office — thus turning the belief in the power of incumbency into a self-fulfilling prophecy. That accomplishment alone made for a superb Tuesday.

Through Jewish eyes W

hat is the best way for me to learn about North Carolina history? I get this question all the time, especially from new North Carolinians who want to learn about the special history of their new homeland. There are lots of good answers: Professors Powell’s and Lefler’s classic state history books are still the standards. But newer versions from important historians like Milton Ready and William Link are now essential references. H.G. Jones’s pictorial history, “North Carolina Illustrated, 1524-1984,” though out of print, has always been one of my favorites. A good, easy-to-read description of North Carolina life during various periods of history is “The Way We Lived in North Carolina.” Another way to look at the history of our state is through the eyes of a special person or a group of people whose experiences differ from our own. The newest of these special North Carolina histories may be the best. “Down Home: Jewish Life in North Carolina” by Leonard Rogoff follows the experiences of Jews in our state beginning with Sir Walter Raleigh’s efforts to establish a colony on Roanoke Island, when Joachim Gantz, a Jewish metallurgist, explored the area’s potential for mining in 1585. It would be many years before Jews established more that a token or temporary presence in the state. Between 1730 and 1775 North Carolina’s population grew from 35,000 to more than 200,000. Between 1770 and 1790 the population doubled. As the population grew, opportunities developed in the fields of commerce and trade. Jews from other parts of the country and the world came here to take advantage of these new opportunities. By the time of the American Revolution, some Jews were ready to join patriot troops to fight the British while others played important roles in supplying the army. Early on, Jews typically settled in port towns like Wilmington and New Bern. In the early 1800’s, some moved west, establishing a presence in places like Warrenton, Hillsborough, and Charlotte. One of the most important Jewish families, the Mordecais, came from Virginia, first to Warrenton and then to Raleigh, where their home place has been preserved as an important public historic site. The Mordecai children and descendents became physicians, presidents of institutions like banks and railroads, authors and teachers. Ironically, the family’s success led to intermarriage with Christians. Many “non-Jewish” families can trace their origins to the Mordecais. In the years before and after the Civil War, wholesalers in New York and Baltimore supplied goods for Jewish peddlers and for a growing number of established Jewish

merchants in North Carolina small towns. Between 1840 and 1860, 48 North Carolina towns had a Jewish store. As the North Carolina Railroad pushed into the Piedmont, Jewish merchants followed. In the following years, Jewish migration escalated. Rogoff confronts with candor some of the painful challenges Jews faced. He described the complicated Jewish accommodation to slavery and the racial caste system that replaced it. He explains the difficulty Jews had in preserving their religious traditions in a society dominated by Christians. He shows the tensions within the Jewish community between the orthodox religious views of newer immigrants from Eastern Europe and those whose more liberal views had been shaped by a long time of contact with American traditions. In more recent times, increasing numbers of Jews have moved from selling merchandise to manufacturing it — or to the professions and other businesses. Rogoff tells with some pride the contributions of Jews and Jewish families to public service and their generosity to community, educational, and charitable causes. The Jewish experience in “down home” North Carolina has been something like the best business deal: Good for both parties — very good for Jews and great for North Carolina. So is Rogoff’s book. D.G. Martin hosts UNC-TV’s North Carolina Bookwatch, which airs Sundays at 5 p.m. For more information or to view prior programs visit the webpage at www.unctv. org/ncbookwatch/

One option to cut school budgets: cancel high school athletics To the Editor: After reading and listening to the gnashing of teeth and wailing of all with regards to cutting jobs, let me offer you a solution — if you have the courage to do it and truly want to save your teachers jobs. I say up front that I have no dog in this fight, no kids in the school system. If you want to plow money into the education system as it was originally designed, cancel all sports programs in all middle and high schools. How much would that save? Let the sports revert to private leagues under the auspices of the county; use the ball fields already established at the schools. If kids want to play, let them, just not on my dime. Please don’t tell me how important sports is to students. Just what percentage actually plays varsity sports? If you truly want to help the system, then have the guts to do the tough things.

yet. For proof there’s still a ways to go, the people of Lee County need not look too far. The national trends can be seen all over Sanford. While the numbers suggest there has been some improvement this year over 2008 and 2009, they are still well behind those of three to five years ago. In 2007, the last year of the boom, Sanford real estate agents sold 722 homes. Then the bottom fell out. In 2008, that number was down to 482, and in 2009 it fell even further, to 394. Hopefully that is the bottom, according to local agent John Ramsperger of Prudential Sanford Real Estate. He said Friday that he has noticed a turnaround so far this year over last, and the numbers support his claim. Through May 21, 46 more homes have been sold in the Sanford area in 2010 over the same time period in 2009. “There has been an uptick primarily since November,� Ramsperger said. “We have definitely started seeing more successful contracts in the last four to six months.� The term “successful contracts� is key, he said. Agents were plenty busy, he said, even in 2008 and 2009, showing people houses. The problem was, those prospective customers couldn’t find financing approval because they didn’t have the proper credit rating or enough liquid capital to buy, a product of the recession and credit crisis

accompanied the housing bust. “So many things go into selling a home,� he said. “And it didn’t seem like we could get the planets to align.� Now, more local people are finding ways to get credit. One of the biggest reasons, he said, was the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s rural development program that guaranteed loans to medium- and low-income buyers in small towns like Sanford so banks wouldn’t have to require a down payment. Likewise, Howard Logue of ReMax of Sanford said he has “definitely had an increase in business� this year, and he attributed the uptick to the USDA program, as well as an overall improvement in consumer confidence. “I think the fear is beginning to leave,� Logue said. “We’ve still have a long way to go, but I think after a while all the bad news becomes old news. People have gotten used to it.� Logue, a 35-year veteran of the real estate industry, 25 of which he has spent in Sanford, said the recent downturn was the worst he’s ever endured. He insisted the local market is not out of the woods yet, though, saying “it may take two or three more years at best� before it gets back to where it was in 2007.

“The economy has got to grow some first to absorb some of the current inventory,� he said. “Right now we are upside-down on inventory in a big way.� The recovery will likely have to feed itself as well. Unfortunately, with more than 133,000 new homeowners taking out more than $16 billion in loans from the USDA program in 2009, the loans ran out of money and are no longer available. And also ending recently was the federal government’s $8,000 tax credit for firsttime homebuyers. Logue said while the tax credit program did have an effect here, it wasn’t as substantial as it was in other parts of the nation. “I sold maybe two or three of them,� he said, “but it wasn’t enough to make a huge difference.� Ramsperger said while the end of the tax credit program may have a slight effect on the recovery, it won’t be as pronounced as it will be in other parts of the nation. “North Carolina is one of the better markets in the country, and has been throughout,� he said. “We’re almost robust compared to places like Michigan, Florida and Nevada.� And Sanford in particular, he said, is in a position to rebound better than anywhere else in the state.

hours worked by existing employees, a trend that could lead to more hiring. Still, it’s likely to be another six months before hiring really begins gearing up, said North Carolina Central University economist Kofi Amoateng. Many economists predict it will take years for the job market to get back to normal.

“Unemployment is a lagging indicator for the economy. It lags behind stock market performance, which has been improving for the past six months,� said Amoateng. But the positive trends

“With the Triangle, the universities and state government to our north and BRAC taking hold to our south, we’re actually doing quite well even with our high unemployment rate,� Ramsperger said. “We could be doing a lot worse.� But he cautioned that the expected growth at Fort Bragg should not be seen as a savior. While places like Carolina Trace in the southeastern portion of Lee County have already started to see growth, feeding off the boom that is occurring along N.C. 87 in Harnett County, most of the northern parts of the county likely won’t feel BRAC’s effects much at all. “BRAC is not a panacea,� he said. “We are starting to see some inventory reduction in Carolina Trace. But that growth will be primarily geographic, close to the base.� Though there has been improvement, Logue was quick to point out that the market is “still very, very attractive right now� for buyers, with extremely low interest rates and a large inventory, foreclosures and short sales driving down home prices. “It may not be a stealer’s market any more,� he joked. “But it’s still a buyer’s market.� The worst may be behind local real estate agents, but it’s all part of the cyclical nature of the industry, Logue said. “I’ve seen hard times come and go,� Logue said. “There have been many ups and down through the years. We’ll get over this one. Then it’ll happen again.� could be sidetracked if Europe’s financial crisis, provoked by debt problems in Greece, causes investors to panic, exports to fall and North Carolina manufacturers to tighten their belts again, he said.

New job start delayed for mental health advocate RALEIGH (AP) — An advocate for the mentally ill hired to a key North Carolina health department post won’t start working as planned as government officials review details on tax problems at the group he ran. Health and Human Services Department spokeswoman Renee McCoy said on Friday that John Tote won’t report to work as scheduled on Monday to become the next state mental health director.

Tote was executive director of the Mental Health Association in North Carolina. Records at the North Carolina Secretary of State’s office show federal tax liens of nearly $1.5 million since 2006 stemming from the association’s unpaid payroll taxes. Tote said late Friday he didn’t know what his future held with the department but he’s proud of his tenure leading the Mental Health Association.

Memorial honors war dead

FORT BRAGG (AP) — When the Army dedicated a memorial in 1995 to special operations soldiers killed in Vietnam and other conflicts, organizers figured three bronze plaques would be plenty of space to engrave the names of the fallen. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan changed that. Nine years after the invasion of Afghanistan, the US Army Special Operations Command has revamped its memorial, adding granite panels for the names of the fallen and providing room for expansion for at least 20 years. “Since 9/11 we’ve had a lot of soldiers that have paid the ultimate sacrifice and it is time to notch it up another level,” said Col. Frederic Drummond, the U.S. Army Special Operations Command chief engineer, who oversaw the project. The Army Special Operations Command has added the names of more than 200 soldiers killed in combat to the wall. “We took our casualty rates as of now and put them out 20 years. Hopefully it will last 40 or 50, but if we go at the rate we are now, it will last 20 years,” said Daniel Telles, an art director at the US Army Special Operations Command history office who designed the new memorial. The United States has lost more than 4,000 soldiers in Iraq and more than more than 1,000 in the Afghanistan war, including deaths that occurred outside those countries but are still

The Army Special Operations Command isn’t the only unit squeezed for memorial space. The 82nd Airborne Division’s memorial obelisk at Fort Bragg honoring fallen soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan filled up in 2008 and was expanded to include a granite wall, funded by donations. The names of soldiers who die in service are now engraved on the wall instead of the obelisk. The new special operations memorial cost more than $350,000, according to Drummond. Most of the money was raised by the USASOC Soldier, Family and Command Support Association through individual donations ranging from $50 to $250 dollars. Retired Col. Andy Milani, president of the association, said the commander of Army special operations, Lt. Gen. John

Mulholland, approached him and his group about raising the money. The group raised enough money to not only help fund the construction, but also maintain it for years to come. “We wanted to create a memorial that was much more fitting to honor the fallen soldiers,” Milani said. The old wall, originally adorned with three bronze plaques, had grown to 10 with the names of the dead now. The plagues’ colors varied, because of the way bronze ages. When Mulholland saw the wall, he ordered a facelift. The new memorial wall has a more solemn look, with the names of the more than 1,000 fallen special operations soldiers killed since the Korean War engraved on ten black granite panels. Above the panels, in gold letters, is written: “In Memory Of

Our Fallen Special Operations Soldiers.” The black granite facade resembles the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC. Telles said his initial designs lacked something, and Mulholland wanted something on top of the wall to serve as a beacon. Telles designed a massive eagle at the edge of a shield. The sculpture was made from the ten bronze plates from the old wall. “That was almost magical because the plates fit it perfectly,” Telles said. Lorenzo Ghiglieri, a renowned sculptor who has pieces displayed in the White House, Vatican and Kremlin, was chosen to make the eagle based on Telles design. He served as a machine gunner on a destroyer during the Korean War and was drawn to the meaning of memorial as a tribute to the fallen soldiers.

Governor pardons man absolved in murder case RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue granted a pardon on Friday to a man absolved of a murder conviction in the first case of its kind in the country. Perdue pardoned Greg Taylor after learning the results of DNA tests done by Raleigh police on clothes Taylor had worn the night of the 1991 killing of Jacquetta Thomas, for which he spent almost 17 years in prison. “This should put the matter to rest,” Taylor told The Associated Press. “Now I hope the (Raleigh) Police Department puts this matter to rest and starts looking forward as to who actually committed this crime.” Taylor already had plans to celebrate his daughter’s 27th birthday on Friday night. He hadn’t been able to celebrate her birthday in freedom since she was 9 years old. Taylor was exonerated of Thomas’ murder in February by three judges who heard the case as a result of the work of the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission, the only panel of its kind in the country. Perdue had delayed issuing an official pardon, saying she wanted to see more evidence. On Friday morning, she learned the results of the DNA tests on Taylor’s clothing.

American Express picks N.C. site for data facility GREENSBORO (AP) — American Express is planning to bring a $400 million data services center

to North Carolina, and it will do so without the types of incentives many companies look to pry from state and local governments. Multiple media outlets reported Friday the company decided this week to build the facility in eastern Guilford County. It will ultimately employ up to 150 people. American Express already has a Greensboro call center that employs 2,000 workers. Local officials had considered offering up to $13 million in incentives to entice another facility. A company spokeswoman declined to comment on the decision. County Commissioner Paul Gibson praised American Express. He thinks they’re building the facility without incentives because it’s a good business location.

Former Wachovia exec charged in $11M bank scam CHARLOTTE (AP) — A former vice president for North Carolina-based Wachovia Bank faces federal charges that he was at the core of a conspiracy that fleeced the company of $11 million.

Federal prosecutors have charged Welch with mail fraud and tax evasion after bilking the bank over nine years. The same charges face 47-year-old John Cousar (coo-ZAHR’) Jr. of Albemarle and 59-year-old Delmar Dove of Charlotte. An indictment accuses Welch of getting Dove, Cousar and others to turn in fake invoices for goods and services the bank never received.

NATION BRIEFS

Public beach closes as oil arrives

GRAND ISLE, La. (AP) — Officials closed the public beach here Friday as thick gobs of oil resembling melted chocolate washed up, a very visible reminder of the blown-out well that has been spewing crude into the Gulf of Mexico for a month. Up to now, only tar balls and a light sheen had come ashore. But oil was starting to hit the beach at this island resort community in various forms — light sheens, orange-colored splotches and heavier brown sheets — said Chris Roberts, a local official who surveyed the area Friday morning. “It’s difficult to clean up when you haven’t stopped the source,� said Roberts, a councilman for Jefferson Parish, which stretches from the New Orleans metropolitan area to the coast. “You can scrape it off the beach but it’s coming right back.� BP PLC was leasing the Deepwater Horizon rig when it exploded April 20, killing 11 workers and triggering the massive spill. The company conceded Thursday what some scientists have been saying for weeks: More oil is flowing from the leak than BP and the Coast Guard had previously estimated. There has been frustration with the pace of efforts to stop the oil, and BP said Friday that it will likely be at least Tuesday before crews can begin a process known as a “top kill� that would stop the flow by shooting heavy drilling mud into the well. Brown and vivid orange globs and sheets of foul-smelling oil the consistency of latex paint have also begun coating the reeds and grasses of Louisiana’s wetlands, home to rare birds, mammals and a rich variety of

Beach goers look at oil that has washed onto a beach in Grand Isle, La., Thursday. Oil from last month’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico has started drifting ashore along the Louisiana coast. marine life. A deep, stagnant ooze sat in the middle of a particularly devastated marsh off the Louisiana coast where Emily Guidry Schatzel of the National Wildlife Federation was examining stained reeds. “This is just heartbreaking,� she said with a sigh. “I can’t believe it.� Ralph Morgenweck of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said countless animals could be feeling the effects of the spill, though workers have found only a handful hurt or injured. The BP executive in charge of fighting the spill, Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles, said he understands the public is frustrated with the response. He told the CBS “Early Show� on Friday that in the worst case scenario, the gusher could continue until early August, when a new well being drilled to cap the flow permanently could be finished. But Suttles said he believes the rich Gulf environment will recover, in part because it is a large body of water and has withstood other oil spills.

“I’m optimistic, I’m very optimistic that the Gulf will fully recover,� Suttles said on CBS. A live video feed of the underwater gusher, posted online after lawmakers exerted pressure on BP, shows what appears to be a large plume of oil and gas still spewing into the water next to the stopper-and-tube combination that BP inserted to carry some of the crude to the surface. The House committee website where the video was posted promptly crashed because so many people were trying to view it. At least 6 million gallons have gushed into the Gulf since the explosion, more than half of what the Exxon Valdez tanker spilled in Alaska in 1989. A growing number of scientists believe it’s more. BP spokesman Mark Proegler told The Associated Press on Thursday that the mile-long tube inserted into a leaking pipe over the weekend was at one point capturing 210,000 gallons of oil a day — the total amount the company and the Coast Guard have esti-

mated is gushing into the sea — but some was still escaping. He would not say how much. Suttles said Friday that the pipe is capturing an average of about 84,000 gallons a day, though the amount varies depending on what’s happening on the seafloor. Washington, meanwhile, has turned up the pressure on BP. The Obama administration asked the company to be more open with the public by sharing such information as measurements of the leak and the trajectory of the spill. BP has been accused of covering up the magnitude of the disaster. Also, the Environmental Protection Agency directed BP to employ a less toxic form of the chemical dispersants it has been using to break up the oil and keep it from reaching the surface. BP is marshaling equipment to try the “top kill,� which involves pumping heavy mud into the top of the blown-out well to try to plug the gusher.

Jobless rates drop in 34 states and Washington, D.C. WASHINGTON (AP) — Unemployment rates fell in a majority of states last month as improved economic conditions spurred hiring. The Labor Department said Friday that 34 states and the District of Columbia reported lower jobless rates in April. Six states reported higher rates, while 10 saw unemployment hold steady. That marked an improvement from March when 16 states and D.C. reported declines in unemployment, 22 states saw increases, and 12 had no change, according to revised figures. South Carolina’s rate fell to 11.6 percent in April, from 12.2 percent in March. That marked the largest monthly drop of any state. After cutting their work forces to the bone during the recession, companies are starting to boost hiring as their sales and profits improve. Nationwide, employers added a net 290,000 job in April, the most in four years, the department reported earlier this month. The U.S. unemployment rate, though, rose to 9.9 percent as hundreds of thousands of job hunters resumed or started searches.

Texas man faked way into Army FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A Texas man with no military experience tricked the Army into letting him enter a reserve unit as a noncommissioned officer earlier this year, a deception that placed an untrained soldier in a leadership position in a time of war, an Associated Press investigation has found. The revelation comes just months after the Army drew criticism for failing to flag the suspicious activities of the Army psychiatrist now charged with killing 13 and wounding dozens at Fort Hood. The case, detailed in court records and other documents examined by the AP, raises

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — A plan by the University of California, Berkeley to voluntarily test the DNA of incoming freshman has come under fire from critics who said the school was pushing an unproven technology on impressionable students. The university has said it will send test kits to 5,500 new students to analyze genes that help control the body’s responses to alcohol, dairy products and folic acid. The voluntary tests are intended to spur conversation about the growing field of personal genomics, not predict the likelihood of disease, university officials said. “We thought that this would be a more engaging vehicle for discussion than having them read a book or an article,� said Mark Schlissel of UC Berkeley. Critics, however, worry that students could get the idea the school approves of widely available direct-to-consumer gene-testing kits that claim to predict the risk of future health problems, said Jesse Reynolds, a policy analyst at the Center for Genetics and Society, a bioethics think thank.

more questions about the Army’s ability to vet soldiers’ backgrounds as it faces continued pressure from Congress over its screening and records system. While the soldier never deployed overseas, some say the case demonstrates how easily someone could pose as a member of the U.S. military. Jesse Bernard Johnston III, 26, joined the Army Reserve in February as a sergeant and was assigned to the Corps Support Airplane Company based at the Fort Worth Naval Air Station. But he wasn’t qualified to hold that rank, according to military records obtained by the AP. The records show that Johnston’s only military experience was attending part of a 12-week Marine officer candidate course for college students in 2004.

IMMIGRATION DEBATE

‘Dora the Explorer’ an illegal immigrant? Images online reveal some attitudes on heated debate By SOPHIA TAREEN Associated Press Writer

CHICAGO — In her police mug shot, the doeeyed cartoon heroine with the bowl haircut has a black eye, battered lip and bloody nose. Dora the Explorer’s alleged crime? “Illegal Border Crossing Resisting Arrest.� The doctored picture, one of several circulating widely in the aftermath of Arizona’s controversial new immigration law, may seem harmless, ridiculous or even tasteless. But experts say the pictures and the rhetoric surrounding them online, in newspapers and at public rallies, reveal some Americans’ attitudes about race, immigrants and where some of immigration reform debate may be headed. “Dora is kind of like a blank screen onto which people can project their thoughts and feelings about Latinos,� said Erynn Masi de Casanova, a sociology professor at the University of Cincinnati. “They feel like they can say negative things because she’s only a cartoon character.� The depictions, whether through irony or protest, are being used by those who oppose and support Arizona’s law. On one hand she’s a likable symbol who

In this composite image provided May 20, 2010 courtesy of Debbie Groben and FreakingNews.com, is an image of Nickelodeon cartoon Dora the Explorer created late last year by Debbie Groben of Sarasota, Fla., for a contest for the fake news site FreakingNews.com. The image, and others like it that question or make fun of the Latina cartoon character’s immigration status and country of origin, have been in wide circulation since Arizona passed a controversial immigration law. Groben, who is against the immigration law, said she just created it out of good fun and didn’t know it would enter the immigration debate. many can relate to, and at the same time, perceived as an outsider who doesn’t belong anywhere. It’s not the first time a children’s character has been dragged into a serious debate. In the late 1990s, Tinky Winky the Teletubby, a purple children’s TV character with a triangle antenna — was called out by Christian leaders for being gay. Sesame Street roommates Bert and Ernie are often involved in statements on same-sex marriage.

Both shows’ producers say the characters aren’t gay. In Dora’s case, especially because her image is so widely available, she’s an easy target as discussion ramps up on how lawmakers should address the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States. For about a decade, the pint-sized Latina character has taught millions of children the English alphabet, colors and Spanish phrases on a Nickelodeon

TV show and through a global empire. Her smiling cherub face is plastered on everything from backpacks to T-shirts to fruit snacks. But since the passage of the Arizona law — which requires authorities to question people about their immigration status if there’s reason to suspect they’re in the country illegally — Dora’s life and immigration status have been scrutinized and mocked. Several websites, including The Huffington Post, have narrated Dora’s mock

capture by immigration authorities. One picture circulating on Facebook shows an ad for a TV show called “Dora the Illegal Immigrant.� On the Facebook page “Dora the Explorer is soo an Illegal Immigrant,� there are several images showing her sailing through the air over the U.S.-Mexican border. Many of the Dora images assume the Latina character is an illegal immigrant from Mexico. But that’s where it gets complicated. Representatives from Nickelodeon declined to comment on Dora’s background, and her place of birth or citizenship have never been clear.� She has brown skin, dark hair and some experts who have studied the show say she speaks Spanish with an American accent. “She’s always been ambiguously constructed,� said Angharad Valdivia, who teaches media studies at the University of Illinois and has explored the issue. “In the U.S. the way we understand race is about putting people in categories and we’re uncomfortable with people we can’t put into categories.� Dora lives in an unidentified location with pyramids that suggest Mexico, but also tropical elements such as palm trees and her friends, Isa the iguana and Boots the monkey. Does that mean she’s from South America or Florida? Then there’s oak trees and her fox nemesis Swiper, which are more common to the American Midwest.

The show often plays Salsa-like music, which has some roots in Cuba and is popular across Latin America. Even the voice actresses behind Dora don’t provide insight. The original Dora voice belonged to Kathleen Herles, whose parents are from Peru. Dora is currently voiced by actress Caitlin Sanchez, a New Jersey-born teen who calls herself Cuban American; her grandparents are Cuban. The images have been used on all sides of the immigration reform debate. Many immigrant families, particularly Latinos, see Dora as a symbol of freedom, someone to relate to. She’s a young girl with brown skin who lives in a borderless world and can travel anywhere she wants without consequence. “It’s symbolic of the way many Latinos live ambiguously in the United States,� said Nicole Guidotti-Hernandez who teaches gender studies at the University of Arizona. “It’s a shorthand for claiming our lives in the United States, especially for children.� At the same time, Guidotti-Hernandez says the ambiguity and negative imagery makes Dora susceptible to being used by those who support the Arizona law. As for the mug shot, it’s been around since late last year, when Debbie Groben of Sarasota, Fla. created it and entered it in a contest for the fake news site FreakingNews.com.

E-BRIEFS

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;24â&#x20AC;&#x2122; to conclude in shadow of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By FRAZIER MOORE AP Television Writer

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Of all the hardship and punishment suffered by counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer, none could match the indignity awaiting him. Monday night, he must conclude his â&#x20AC;&#x153;24â&#x20AC;? career in the shadow of another series finale airing the night before â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the feverishly hyped and anticipated â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lost.â&#x20AC;? During the â&#x20AC;&#x153;24â&#x20AC;? two hours (which span from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in New York City), Jack continues his campaign of retribution against the Russian officials who killed his girlfriend, while he exposes an about-to-be-signed global peace treaty for the fraud it is. He must polish off these chores before the forces mobilized by the President of the United States and a corrupt former chief executive track him down. To make matters worse, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bleeding from a knife wound and he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a break since 4 p.m. the day before. Such are the challenges routinely faced by Bauer each season on â&#x20AC;&#x153;24,â&#x20AC;? which, starring Kiefer Sutherland, has unleashed eight save-our-nation missions, each at a real-time, adrenalized pace that, at its best, leaves even the audience out of breath.

Kiefer Sutherland, right, and Jennifer Westfeldt, in a scene from â&#x20AC;&#x153;24,â&#x20AC;? the long-running Fox series that will end Monday night with a two-hour series finale. But Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s series end (airing on Fox from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. EDT) not only finds Jack in the midst of twisted international diplomacy, but also lands him in the fog of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lostâ&#x20AC;? hangover. Was there no way Fox could have done right by â&#x20AC;&#x153;24â&#x20AC;? and given it a send-off when the zeitgeist wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be buzzing with dayafter â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lostâ&#x20AC;? debate? That said, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;24â&#x20AC;? conclusion is excellent, a must-see for anyone who ever thrilled to this ambitious action drama. It retains the seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; kinetic style, of course. Jack has lately been pushed to the limit and beyond. By now heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a killing machine as he slaughters his way up the Russian hierarchy to eliminate everyone who had a role in

murdering his girlfriend, Renee Walker (Annie Wersching), a former FBI special agent who once worked undercover against the Russians. It seems complicity rises all the way to Russian president Yuri Suvarov (Nick Jameson). Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gunning for him. Suvarov is scheduled in New York to sign a Mideast peace accord with U.S. President Allison Taylor (Cherry Jones), whose zeal to see the treaty a success has compelled her to help cover up numerous vile acts by the Russians that could scuttle the agreement. Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moral dilemma has been exploited by former President Charles Logan (Gregory Itzin), a pompous, swivel-headed

opportunist whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a party to the Russian-driven carnage. Can Jack flush out all the evil elements in time? Not if Logan has anything to do with it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As long as Jack Bauer is out there, the agreement will never be safe,â&#x20AC;? Logan says to President Taylor, egging her on to accept Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swift disposal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He will claw his way back from the ends of the Earth, unless we stop him before that can happen.â&#x20AC;? The once upright Taylor, though terribly conflicted, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t protest. A scene like this, with seasoned pros such as Jones and Itzin, brings something to â&#x20AC;&#x153;24â&#x20AC;? that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t often get the highest priority: solid acting and dialogue. And even Sutherland, whose truly affecting dramatic moments during the seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; run could be counted on two hands, scores a couple of nice scenes where he gets to speak, and not just bark orders and shoot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These people need to be stopped, they need to be held accountable. They brought this on themselves,â&#x20AC;? he tells his loyal Counter-Terrorist ally Chloe Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), who has risked her life to try to stop his rampage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to finish what I started.â&#x20AC;?

Lohan expected in court Monday LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lindsay Lohan is expected in court next week after missing a mandatory hearing on Thursday. Lohanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, says the 23year-old actress will return to Los Angeles Lohan on Saturday and appear in court Monday morning. After a few breezy days at the Cannes Film Festival, where she attended various events to promote her Linda Lovelace film and partied into the wee hours on the day she was supposed to be in court in Beverly Hills, Lohan is coming home to a litany of legal woes. She was to be arrested upon her return to Los Angeles for missing the mandatory hearing, but a judge recalled the warrant late Thursday after Lohan posted bail. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel set bail at $100,000, revoked Lohanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probation and imposed strict new conditions on the star, who was due in court for a progress report on her probation stemming from two arrests in 2007. The judge ordered that Lohan be prohibited from drinking any alcohol, required to wear an alcohol-monitoring bracelet and submit to random weekly drug testing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If she wanted to be here, it looks to the court that she could have been here,â&#x20AC;?

said, frustrated at Lohanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absence. The actress, wearing short shorts and high heels, was partying on a yacht in the French Riviera until early Thursday morning, says celebrity photographer Phil Ramey, who posted the photos on his website. Holley said Lohanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passport was stolen while in Cannes and she was unable to return to Los Angeles in time for Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She did, in fact, have airline tickets,â&#x20AC;? Lohanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney told the judge. Lohan has been on probation since August 2007 after pleading guilty to misdemeanor drug charges and no contest to three driving charges. The plea came after a pair of high-profile arrests earlier that year.

Teen idol Bieber vs. glass door BERLIN (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Teen idol Justin Bieber walked smack into the glass of an automatic revolving door when trying to exit a German hotel, sending his fans into a blogging frenzy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ouch! I just walked into that door ... my forehead hurts ... I walked right into the window,â&#x20AC;? Bieber told a local broadcast team that captured the incident on camera as he was exiting the Radisson Blu hotel in Frankfurt. Bieber can be seen in the video trying to push the automatic door, then turning to walk out, but instead smacking his forehead against the glass.

Angelou throws garden party for 82nd birthday WINSTON-SALEM (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Poet Maya Angelou celebrated a belated 82nd birthday Thursday with a few celebrity friends and a few choice words about political divisiveness in the United States. Singers Naomi Judd and Martina McBride sang â&#x20AC;&#x153;Happy Birthday to Youâ&#x20AC;? to Angelou, who sat at a table in her newly refurbished backyard garden, while hip-hop artist and actor Common improvised a song to honor her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have an attitude of gratitude. Nobody promised me this day,â&#x20AC;? Angelou said in an interview with The Associated Press, explaining how she keeps writing. Despite her generally upbeat attitude, Angelou said she finds the state of national politics to be tragic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, this is our country,â&#x20AC;? said Angelou, whose birthday was April 4. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a country of Republicans, of Democrats and of independents. And we are going to work together to make it better. Or we will not. And we will make it worse. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dumb.â&#x20AC;?

Q

: What activities are you focused upon locally? The Sanford BPW has supported such community projects as No Scare Fair, Holiday Sox, the Game of Life, and the Center for Independent Livingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas party. The Game of Life is a national program that we adopted and held for the past three, years. Working with many businesses in Sanford we create a full day simulation of what adult life is like financially and showcase this experience to high school girls. We have centers for banking, food, entertainment, housing, clothing, monthly bills such as cell phone, cable, etc. Each high school girl is given a checking account register and income based on questionnaires they answer. It is then their task to live within their means financially. Beautiful cars from Wilkinson have been brought on site and the girls get to sit in them and choose a car, but they face a strong reality check when they are asked to make payments and purchase insurance. Many times girls do not have money left at the end of the month. Many leave with lots of questions as well as gratitude for their parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; expenditures. The Sanford BPW has also given scholarships to high school girls to help them with their college expenses.

BPW is open to all women. Our yearly dues are $50. Meetings are the first Thursday of each month at Elizabethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. We eat 5:30 p.m. and begin our meeting at 6. Our website is www.bpwsanford.org and you can find us on Facebook. You are encouraged to attend a meeting and see if this is a good fit for you. We realize that women especially have a full calendar and so we only met once a month for about an hour. E-mail, phone calls and networking are other ways we keep up with each other and support our membership. It is very important for women of all ages to be in a supportive network. Time is spent each month not only on BPW business but on the business of our members. Throughout our membership we have ladies who are very active in the Sanford/Lee County area, from participating in governmental roles to being downtown business owners. Sanford BPW is a wonderful cross-section of women who support our causes and each other. We also have student memberships for young women who are in high school or college. This is a good way for these young ladies to network and learn more about women in different careers. Not only does BPW stand out on a resume for young women, but we feel they learn a lot from our members as well as our programs and speakers. Incidentally, Governor Beverly Purdue is a member of the NC Business and Professional Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organization.

Q

: What plans does the Sanford BPW have for this upcoming year?

Q

: What is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;state of the industryâ&#x20AC;? for women in the workplace, especially now with this economy? More women are in the workforce than ever before. Women comprise 46.5 percent of the total U.S. labor force. Women are projected to account for 49 percent of the total work force by 2016.

Seventy-five percent of women work full-time and 25 percent work part-time. The largest percentage of employed women work in management, professional or related occupations. Newsweek magazine states there are more women employed during these tough economic times because there are such huge layoffs in the manufacturing and construction industries which are typically maledominated. Many men are now the stay-at-home care giver while women are returning or going to work for the first time. Women have suffered fewer job losses than men, but overall they still earn only 78 cents for every dollar a man makes, according to the Center for American Progress. Much of their work is concentrated in lower-paid industries such as retail, hospitality, education, nonprofits and health care. Locally statistics from the Lee County Economic Development website state that women in Lee County makeup 37 percent of the workforce. According to the NC Employment Security Commission, 1,255 women applied for jobs in March of 2010. This is a 130 more than last year of the same month. In listening to our BPW members, more women are opening their own businesses or operating businesses out of their homes. Many women are joining the workforce for the first time. The workforce picture will continue to change as the economy changes.

WORLD BRIEFS Mothers leave Iran without release of their children TEHRAN, Iran (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The mothers of three Americans jailed in Iran for 10 months left for home Friday, getting one last chance to embrace their children but failing to secure their immediate release. In a glimmer of hope, Iran announced that two of its nationals held in Iraq by U.S. forces for years were freed Friday. The release raised the possibility that a behindthe-scenes swap was in the offing or that their release was a gesture of goodwill in an attempt to free the Americans. The Iraniansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; release â&#x20AC;&#x153;may have some diplomatic effect on this case,â&#x20AC;? the Americansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lawyer, Masoud Shafii, told The Associated Press. The U.S. has said it is not offering a direct swap, and Iranian officials made no public connection between the freed Iranians and the Americans.

Catholic Church: synthetic cell good, life comes from God ROME (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Catholic Church officials said Friday that the recently created first synthetic cell could be a positive development if correctly used, but warned scientists that only God can create life.

Vatican and Italian church officials were mostly cautious in their first reaction to the announcement from the United States that researchers had produced a living cell containing manmade DNA. They warned scientists of the ethical responsibility of scientific progress and said that the manner in which the innovation is applied in the future will be crucial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great scientific discovery. Now we have to understand how it will be implemented in the future,â&#x20AC;? Monsignor Rino Fisichella, the Vaticanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top bioethics official, told Associated Press Television News.

N. Korea to face consequences for sinking ship

SHANGHAI (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Citing â&#x20AC;&#x153;overwhelmingâ&#x20AC;? evidence that North Korea sank a South Korean warship, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton warned the communist state Friday of international consequences. After discussions in Tokyo, Clinton planned to consult with counterparts in Beijing and Seoul on appropriate measures to take after an international investigative team on Thursday blamed North Korea for firing a torpedo that sank the South Korean ship in March, killing 46 sailors.

we also realize that we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do any of that without the members. We have a dedicated slate of officers that are serving this year. I serve as local president. Carol Carlson of Richard Carlson, CPA, and the creator of Willing Hands is our president-elect. Deborah Key, AE, of the Sanford Area Association of Realtors is treasurer, and Kathy Woodell of Realty World/Carolina Hometown Properties is secretary. There are many opportunities for women to serve on our board and become involved. Watch our website, Facebook page and The Herald for upcoming events. Speakers that pertain to topics women are interested in will be scheduled. Membership growth opportunities will be held both to grow our organization as well as educate women who attend. Networking events will also be scheduled for our members and for any women that want to attend. We will participate in state and regional BPW events. The workplace is not the only place to build your career. To make your mark, you need a place to network and to sharpen your skills and to find personal support. Investing in BPW is a smart move.

Floyd Landis

ARMSTRONG FIRES BACK AT LANDIS ALLEGATIONS (AP) — Floyd Landis ignored desperate pleas from his sponsor to avoid a public fight with Lance Armstrong, according to e-mails the seven-time Tour de France champion released in trying to prove the disgraced cyclist has “zero credibility.” Armstrong released the messages Friday in a second day of attacks on Landis, who accused cycling’s biggest star of doping, teaching other riders to cheat and paying off a top cycling official after allegedly testing positive in 2002. Armstrong has denied those allegations. “Even a superficial review reveals a troubling, angry and misplaced effort at retribution by Landis for his perceived slights,” said a statement posted on Armstrong’s RadioShack team website. “While these types of repeated, tired and baseless accusations against Lance have been proven false in the past, it is quite regrettable, but telling, that so many in cycling are now attacked.” Landis did not respond to an e-mail from The Associated Press. His longtime sponsor, Dr. Brent Kay, also did not return a request for comment. Perhaps the most telling exchange was a long e-mail from Kay, a cycling enthusiast and one of Landis’ most ardent supporters, financially and otherwise. Kay has steadfastly said he believes Landis wasn’t guilty of doping when he won cycling’s most famous race in 2006.

NCAA JEFF JORDAN MOVING ON FROM ILLINOIS

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Jeff Jordan’s on-again, off-again basketball career at Illinois is over. Michael Jordan’s eldest son has been given his release to transfer to another school. Illinois spokesman Derrick Burson said Friday that Jordan is exploring options elsewhere but hasn’t announced where he will go or whether he plans to play basketball in what will be his senior season. The release is required by the NCAA if a student wants to leave to play at another school. Illinois coach Bruce Weber called Jordan “an important part of our team.”

SWEET VICTORY Jackets continue state playoff run, advancing to Elite Eight

By RYAN SARDA sarda@sanfordherald.com

RALEIGH — Alex Furl did it again. And so did the Lee County Yellow Jackets. Furl’s RBI double in the fifth inning helped Lee County take the lead for good as the Yellow Jackets held off Broughton 6-3 in the Sweet 16 of the NCHSAA 4-A state baseball tournament. The double, which scored leadoff man Zach Bradford, broke a 1-1 tie and began a three-run rally for the Yellow Jackets. The Yellow Jackets added two more in the seventh to go up 6-1 and never looked back from there. “It’s one more for us,” said Lee County head coach Charlie Spivey. “We just want to keep moving closer to our goal.” The win puts the Yellow Jackets in the Elite Eight of the state

Vickers said Friday at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where he made his first public appearance since his ordeal began last Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is what I love to do, and I fully intend on doing it again.â&#x20AC;? The 26-year-old Vickers is being treated with blood thinners, and his physician could not clear him to race because of the dangers of the driver being injured in a crash. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not advisable for

him to race while heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on blood thinners,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Steven Limentani of Carolina Hematology Oncology. Vickers, seated between Limentani and Red Bull Racing general manager Jay Frye, then quickly lightened the mood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can actually race on blood thinners, I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t crash,â&#x20AC;? he smiled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, what if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t crash?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153; Limentani said the clots in Vickersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lungs were â&#x20AC;&#x153;relatively small,â&#x20AC;? but giving the driver pains similar to being punched in the ribs every time he took a breath.

Boston Celtics forwards Kevin Garnett (5) and Brian Scalabrine, left, celebrate after Game 2 of the NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals against the Orlando Magic on Tuesday in Orlando, Fla.

Celtics have struggled at home

WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) — The original Boston Garden is long gone, and so is the fear in opponents’ eyes when they play the Celtics on their home floor. So don’t expect the Orlando Magic to be too intimidated when they arrive for Games 3 and 4 of the best-ofseven Eastern Conference finals. “We’ve won there before, and there’s no reason we can’t do it again,” forward Rashard Lewis said Friday as the Magic prepared for Game 3. “Boston came to us and beat us twice on our home court, so it’s happened before. Why can’t we do it? Why can’t it happen again?” The Celtics took the first two games in Orlando, stealing the home-court advantage and earning a chance to advance without having to leave town again. A victory at the

new Boston Garden on Saturday night would give them a chance to complete the sweep on Monday. But home-court advantage doesn’t mean what it used to for Boston. The Celtics were 24-17 at home this year — tied for the worst of all the playoff teams. It’s the first time the Celtics have had a better record on the road (26-15) than at home since 1974, and just the second time since 1955. Boston was one of just two NBA teams this season that was better on the road than at home. For coach Doc Rivers, it’s more reason to forget about a regular season in which, after beating Orlando on Christmas Day to improve to 23-5, the Celtics spent the next four months as a .500 team. “During the season,” he said

before interrupting himself. “I don’t want to go back to that. I will go back to pre-Christmas.” Forward Paul Pierce would also like to forget the regular season, and the Celtics’ playoff run is making that easier. After earning the No. 4 seed in the East and quickly dispatching the Miami Heat in the first round, Boston eliminated LeBron James and the top-seeded Cleveland Cavaliers in the conference semis. Against second-seeded Orlando, the Celtics have twice opened big leads and held on to take a 2-0 advantage. Now they’re back home, where the Celtics are 5-1 so far in the playoffs. “I think our guys are getting comfortable playing at home again,” Rivers said.

(AP) — The Philadelphia 76ers made Doug Collins their top choice for a second time. Collins was hired Friday by the Sixers, charged with reviving a Collins franchise that went 27-55 last season and has the No. 2 overall pick in next month’s draft. A person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday that Collins agreed to a four-year deal. Collins was selected among seven candidates, the second time the organization chose him above all others. The Sixers made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 1973 draft. This is Collins’ fourth stint as an NBA coach. He’s worked as an analyst for TNT since leaving the Washington Wizards in 2003. “We are excited to hire a head coach with the level of experience, knowledge and passion for the game that Doug Collins has,” team president Ed Stefanski. “He has been around basketball his entire life, has experienced success at every step throughout his career and we are confident in his ability to lead our team.”

Oswalt asks Astros to trade him HOUSTON (AP) — Astros ace Roy Oswalt wants out of Houston. General manager Ed Wade said Oswalt’s agent, Bob Garber, contacted owner Drayton McLane earlier this week

to make the request. When asked if it was a request or a demand, Wade said that distinction didn’t matter. “Roy’s contract has a notrade clause, not a trade-me clause,” Wade said. “There is no rule that allows a player in his contract status to demand a trade. So demand, request, hold your breath until you turn blue, it’s all the same. It’s acknowledged and noted.” The 32-year-old Oswalt recently said he would be willing to waive his no-trade clause.

H.S. junior Spieth makes cut at Byron Nelson

IRVING, Texas (AP) — High school junior Jordan Spieth is sticking around to play the weekend at the Byron Nelson Championship, becoming the sixth-youngest player to make the cut at a PGA Tour event. Spieth tapped in a par putt to loud cheers for a 3-under 137 through two rounds of his first-ever tournament against the pros. On Friday, Spieth finished his suspended opening round with a 68, then after only a brief rest shot 69 in the second round. Spieth is 16 years, nine months and 24 days. He’s also the second 16-year-old to make a cut this season, joining Italy’s Matteo Manassero at the Masters. Manassero also has the best-ever finish by someone this young, having tied for 13th at the 2009 British Open. Spieth is the reigning U.S. Junior Amateur Champion and just last weekend won a state high school title. He played a few months ago with Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, and Romo showed up in Spieth’s gallery for his final few holes Friday.

Report: Favre has the needed ankle surgery NFC championship game. He had said he would need ankle surgery if he wanted to play in 2010, but there was no word Friday about his

playing career. Messages were left by The Associated Press seeking comment from Bus Cook, Favre’s agent. A Vikings spokesman declined comment when asked about the ESPN.com report. Dr. James Andrews cleaned up scar tissue in Favre’s ankle

to increase his range of motion, according to ESPN.com. The operation took place at the Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, Fla. Favre, who turns 41 in October, said April 30 he had talked to Andrews over the phone about his injured ankle.

The surgery came one day after Favre visited the Southern Mississippi baseball team in Hattiesburg, Miss., and told the Golden Eagles he would return for one more season in the NFL if they made it to the College World Series for the second consecutive year.

more Nick Durazo, who was making his first start of the postseason. Durazo threw six complete innings and allowed just three hits and struck out five in his first start in over two weeks. “Nick was just unbelievable,” said Spivey. “You’ve got to hand it to assistant coaches Shawn McNeill and Neil Rosser. They definitely deserve credit for working with our pitching staff and getting them ready. You have to give credit where credit is due. Nick also went out there and executed for us. We knew he would be good but he did a lot more than we expected. You’ve got to hand it to him.” The Yellow Jackets were led by a group of players with multiple hits including Furl, who finished the game 2-for-2 with an RBI and a walk. Julio Pa-

rades was 2-for-3 with a double and a single. Cody Palmer was 2-for-4 with two singles. Carson Wilson was 2-for-4 with two RBI, a single and a double. Following Furl’s RBI double in the fifth inning, Wilson drove in Parades for the second time of the game on a sacrifice fly. In the second inning, Wilson grounded out but still managed to score Parades from third to give the Yellow Jackets a 1-0 lead. Dillon Frye scored Furl on another sac fly in the fifth to make it 4-1. In the seventh inning, the Yellow Jackets loaded the bases with no outs and had runs from Frye and Furl. “Our kids just made the timely hits and kept battling,” said Spivey. “This is the third round of the playoffs and for the second straight week, we’ve brought more fans than

they had. It was like this the other night against Richmond County, too. The fans have been outstanding and our kids really appreciate that and they feed off that enthusiasm.” Broughton’s first run came in the bottom of the third when Collier Roberts hit a solo home run over the center field wall. The bomb tied the game at 1. In the bottom of the seventh, J.P. Morris’ two-RBI double off Lee County reliever Trent Clark drove in two more runs for the Capitals (14-11). The Yellow Jackets will now play either of two Tri-9 Conference opponents, Apex or Holly Springs, in the next round. That game is scheduled for Tuesday night. If Apex wins, the Yellow Jackets will host the Cougars in Sanford. With a Holly Springs victory, the Yellow Jackets will be making the short trek to

Holly Springs. “We’ve seen both of them and we know both of them,” said Spivey. “It’s just one more step that we have to make. We’re very familiar with both programs having played both of them twice this season. The kids are confident in themselves and that definitely helps you at this stage.” The last time the Yellow Jackets were this deep in the postseason, Spivey was on his way to celebrating his second state title in a five-year span. Right now, Spivey’s focus is on the 2010 Yellow Jackets, and he cannot express enough how proud of his club he is. “This is a great feeling for us,” he said. “I’m proud of our boys. They’ve earned this and it’s been a great ride so far. We hope that the train keeps moving.”

sixth-place finish in the 800meter run with a time of 2 minutes, 24.16 seconds. It was a solid day at the track for the Cavaliers, who also participated in two boys’ individual events. Senior A.J. Jackson, also a member of the 4x200 relay team, placed seventh in the high jump with a leap of 6 feet, 2 inches. The relay team of Jackson, Michael Reives, Robert Richard and Quentin Ingram was 13th. A football season request helped the Southern Lee boys’

track team come together to enjoy a successful season and solid finishes at the state, said coach Eric Puryear. “We made it an ultimatum with the kids playing football that if they weren’t going to be involved in another sport, that they needed to run track,” said Puryear, who stepped aside as head football coach on Tuesday. “We had 35 kids on the track team this year, and it’s got a lot of upside now. “If these kids make a commitment to running in the fall, they can have a very good track

team here next year.” The 4x200 relay team placed second in the conference and in the regional this season. Isaac Presson was a winner in two different events to lead Asheville to the boys’ team title. Presson won the 1,600 and set a new state 3-A record in the 800 of 1:52.07 to earn the Most Valuable Performer award and pace Asheville to a solid victory over a field of 58 teams. Asheville had 90 points to 63 for second-place Crest, followed by Eastern Alamance (60), Kannapolis A.L. Brown

(40), South Brunswick (32) and Fayetteville Douglas Byrd (30). Led by junior Danielle Butts, who was the meet MVP, Winterville South Central earned its first NCHSAA state girls’ 3-A track and field championship. Butts won both the high jump and triple jump and also ran the lead leg on two victorious relays as South Central rolled to victory with 63 points, 15 ahead of runner-up Weddington.

tournament, somewhere they haven’t been since 2001. It also gives the Yellow Jackets seven wins in a row, a streak that dates back to late April. Furl has 27 RBI this season in 25 games to lead the Yellow Jackets. In Lee County’s 2-0 win over Richmond County in the second round, Furl drove in both runs for the Yellow Jackets (15-10). “He’s been unbelievable,” said Spivey about Furl. “It’s just a usual thing for him. He has such a great approach to the game — all of our kids do. These kids have earned this and I’m very proud of every last one of these guys.” On the mound, the Yellow Jackets were paced by sopho-

DEAR ABBY

BRIDGE HAND

Couple’s polar politics threaten mutual respect DEAR ABBY: I have been in a relationship with my college boyfriend for 2 1/2 years. We have had our share of struggles, but worked through most of them over time. Lately, our polar opposite political views have driven a wedge between us. I feel we are losing respect for each other as well as our sense of intimacy and love. How can we learn to have a mutual respect for our different political opinions while not compromising what each truly believes? — RIDING A SEESAW IN MIAMI

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Aggressive action may be required regarding financial matters. If you focus on the gains to be made without jeopardizing what you already have, this will be a winning year. Don’t let your emotions take over or cause you to bail out someone who doesn’t deserve your help. This year, it’s every man for himself and that includes you. Your numbers are 1, 6, 13, 20, 22, 35, 41 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do your research. Diplomacy will help you do what needs to be done without disrupting your relationships. A change in your personal life is probably overdue. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can make a difference in your community and to your friends and neighbors if you resolve issues and fight for the rights of the people you care about. Love is in the stars. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t fold under pressure. Instead, do what’s expected of you and you will avoid criticism or complaints. A change of plans will cause some emotional upset but, as long as you are willing to carry on alone, you will not suffer a loss and will probably get more out of the experience you have. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will get far more done at home if you enlist the help of family or friends. A change is heading your way and should enhance your relationships as well as your surroundings. You can improve your associations if you discuss problems. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Impulsive acts will cause problems from an oversight on your part. Make your plans carefully. Delays and frustrations will result while traveling or when dealing with people trying to add to your responsibilities. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Shake things up a bit

WORD JUMBLE

by visiting places that will take your mind off pressing matters. Distance yourself from stressful situations in order to get a different perspective. Emotional and financial issues can be expected but avoid impulsive action. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take the initiative to do what needs to be done without asking for help. Property purchases, changing your residence or even moving your furniture around will help you feel better about your surroundings and your future. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If you need something, call in a favor. You can accomplish a lot if you are upfront and ask for what you need to achieve success. Forcefulness and persistence will pay off. Strive to be your best. Love is on the rise. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Face problems head on and be upfront and honest. Now is not the time to make up excuses when a simple apology or kind gesture is what’s required. Put the negative behind you and start anew. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Getting together with friends or taking part in an event or activity that tests your skills will bring out the best in you. Have a heart to heart talk with someone you care for. A change at home will bring great results and help you to ease your stress. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may face scrutiny if you haven’t been honest with someone who has always had your back. Clear the air so you can lessen the tension and start moving down the right track. Your charm will attract lovers. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can work well with others as long as you are straight about who is doing what. Lots can be accomplished and a greater understanding between you and a partner will bring positive changes. An added responsibility will be a blessing.

DEAR RIDING A SEESAW: Begin by accepting that not all couples are in lockstep when it comes to their political beliefs. It is easier when you have respect for each other in other areas of your relationship. Then remember that when it comes to voting, individuals are not joined at the hip. And if that doesn’t work, follow the example set by James Carville and Mary Matalin, a high-profile, politically disparate couple whose differences haven’t driven them apart. o DEAR ABBY: Every time I go out with a man who says he wants a woman who treats him well and doesn’t play around, I get burned. I’m not a game player, and I end up tripping over my feelings every

single time. I give every guy the benefit of the doubt, and I’m the one who is always disappointed! At 29, I am contemplating life with eight cats and a set of knitting needles because I have finally had it with dating. Aren’t there any men who actually mean what they say anymore? — STEPHANIE IN HOUSTON DEAR STEPHANIE: I’m tempted to say no, that all the good ones are married off -- but it wouldn’t be true. So here’s what I’m recommending: Start asking your friends of both sexes what you may be doing to attract men who hurt you or flake out. When a woman is repeatedly hurt because she gives every guy “the benefit of the doubt,” it’s because she’s attracting the wrong people. o

DEAR ABBY: A few years ago my husband and I took in a family member’s infant daughter until a time when her mother could get back on her feet. That time never came, and we went through the process of adoption. We have been a happy family ever since. I am now pregnant for the first time. Several friends and relatives have offered to throw us a shower. I am unsure of the proper etiquette since this is our second child (but our first biological child). My husband and I don’t want to seem to be asking for anything, especially if having a shower for a second baby is considered improper. But we have never had a chance to experience the fun side of a pregnancy. I would appreciate your thoughts. — FIRST-TIME PREGNANT, SECOND-TIME MOM DEAR FIRST-TIME PREGNANT: I see no reason why there shouldn’t be a shower for your baby. It’s a lovely way to celebrate the new life you are bringing into the world. However, according to Emily Post: “Mothers and sisters of the motherto-be should NOT give the shower. Naturally, mothers and sisters should be invited, but as with any other gift-giving event, they should not initiate an invitation that bears an obligation on the part of the recipient to provide a present to direct relatives.”

ODDS AND ENDS $20 to see ‘Shrek’ on IMAX? That’s a lot of green NEW YORK (AP) — A few theaters seemed to flirt with the idea of raising the adult ticket price to $20 to the IMAX 3-D family movie “Shrek Forever After,” opening this weekend. Four AMC theaters in Manhattan bumped the box office price to $20, but three quickly dropped the price on Friday. Two were charging $17 and two were selling tickets for $19. AMC Theatres spokesman Justin Scott attributed the price hike to an error. “Unfortunately, a limited number of theaters posted incorrect pricing for “Shrek Forever After,” which we immediately corrected,” he said. “Any guest who purchased a ticket at the incorrect price can visit Guest Services for a refund.” The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that the four theaters had listed the $20 price for the IMAX showing of “Shrek” on Wednesday. Moviegoers would do well to consider taking in the new flick in neighboring New Jersey, where an AMC theater in the city of Elizabeth was selling tickets for $16.50. BTIG LLC media analyst Richard Greenfield reported on his blog Thursday that a Fandango.com screenshot from the AMC Kips Bay movie theater in Manhattan showed a $20 price. On Friday, the same theater had dropped it to $17. “Shrek Forever After” is the series’ fourth installment, and the first in 3-D.

Md. man who stole, crashed plane to pay just $40 FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A homeless

SUDOKU

MY ANSWER man caused about $12,000 in damage when he stole and crashed a singleengine airplane at a Maryland airport — but he’ll pay just $40 in restitution. Frederick County Circuit Judge G. Edward Dwyer Jr. expressed surprise Thursday upon learning of the small amount. Dwyer asked: “Only $40?” Prosecutors explained that insurance had paid for all the damage except for a $40 deductible. Fifty-one-year-old Calvin C. Cox has served half of his nine-month sentence for the December theft. His lawyer has said Cox stole the plane because he was homeless and cold. At sentencing in April, Dwyer authorized work release for Cox so he could earn money to pay restitution to the plane’s owner, Mid Atlantic Soaring Associates Corp.

Wis. man loses relatives’ ashes when car is towed MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin man has lost his father’s and grandfather’s ashes when the car where they were stored was towed and destroyed. Wausau police say everything in Shawn Leslie’s 1994 Mercury Cougar was tossed before the towing company crushed it. Leslie says he thought the car was safe when he parked it in a lot behind a Wausau diner. He says the lot’s owner gave him permission to park while he was out of town driving a truck for a living. But the lot’s manager, Ray Burris, says the owner never gave Leslie permission, and he called the police after the vehicle sat for more than six months. Then he had it towed. See answer, page 2A

Daughter’s faith causes friction Q: Our daughter came home from college at Christmas and told us she’d become a Christian there. We’re not religious, however, and recently she’s turned very negative toward us for not believing as she does. Is this the way Christians are supposed to act? -- Mrs. B.R. A: I’m thankful your daughter has given her life to Jesus Christ, and I have no doubt that she has found a joy and peace that were lacking in her life before this. But I’m sorry she’s reacted toward you in a negative way -- and no, this isn’t the way she should be acting. Jesus taught us to love others, just as He loves them (even if they don’t love Him in return). He said, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another” (John 13:34). In time, I’m sure your daughter will come to see this truth more clearly. Since receiving your letter, I’ve been pondering why your daughter has reacted in this way. I wonder, for example, if she resents the fact that you never taught her about God or had any interest in God. But I also can’t help but feel that she’s very concerned about you -- and her concern comes from her love for you. She hopes that some day you’ll discover what she has discovered, and that Christ’s peace and joy and hope will become a part of your lives, as they have hers. Whatever her reasons, my prayer is that you and your husband will begin to face your own need of Christ. God loves you, and life’s greatest joy comes from knowing Him and being able to face the future with Christ in our hearts.

GOP officials ponder how to help, and tame, Paul

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Even as national Republican officials seek ways to limit damage from Rand Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unorthodox remarks, the Kentucky Senate nominee raised more eyebrows Friday by defending the oil company blamed for the Gulf oil spill. Those comments, on top of Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earlier suggestion that businesses should have the right to turn away racial minorities, sent gleeful Democrats into full attack mode while top Republicans pondered how to calm things down. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a delicate issue. The Republican establishment spurned Paul and supported his opponent, Trey Grayson, the hand-picked choice of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. Paul, a favorite of the tea party movement, walloped Grayson in Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary. Now, chastened GOP leaders are dealing with a novice and outsider who, feeling his oats, has expressed his robust libertarian views in a series of interviews that have caused political pros to wince. High-ranking Republicans from Washington have quietly reached out to Paul and his aides, trying to start healing the breach and to nudge him toward greater campaign discipline, said three GOP operatives close to the situation. The three, who would speak only on background to avoid antagonizing Paul and his supporters, disagreed on how the initial exchanges have gone. A Washington-based Republican official, who

Paul told Maddow he abhors racial discrimination, but he also suggested the federal government shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the power to force restaurants to admit minorities against their will. There were signs late Friday that Paul was getting the message. His campaign canceled his scheduled appearance Sunday on NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meet the Press,â&#x20AC;? accusing reporters of being obsessed with the civil rights flap. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just want to keep beating this same dead horse,â&#x20AC;? said campaign manager David Adams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re finished talking about that.â&#x20AC;? Whether Paul will

embrace other advice from outsiders is unclear. A well-connected Republican official, based in Kentucky, said the nominee is extremely self-confident and may resist the idea of bringing more experienced and mainstream GOP strategists into his circle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots of chatter, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to get this guy some help,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; the official said, adding that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not convinced Paul realizes the danger of saying yes to so many interview requests. Washington-based Republican strategists hope to strike a balance. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to persuade Paul to be more selective and disciplined in his remarks but not lose the freshness and candor that appeal to voters seeking a change in Washington. Paul, an eye doctor and son of libertarian presidential candidate Ron Paul, criticized President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handling of the Gulf oil spill Friday, calling it overtly antibusiness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like from the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adminis-

tration is this sort of, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll put my boot heel on the throat of BP,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said in an interview with ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good Morning America.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business.â&#x20AC;? Interior Secretary Ken Salazar told CNN on May 2: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our job basically is to keep the boot on the neck of British Petroleum.â&#x20AC;? Other Republicans have criticized the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handling of the oil spill. But few have been so vocal in defending BP, the company responsible for the deep well and offshore rig that exploded last month, killing 11 workers and spewing millions of gallons of oil. Paul said BP has agreed to pay the costs of the cleanup and damage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of this sort of blame-game society in the sense that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always got to be somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fault instead of the fact that maybe sometimes accidents happen,â&#x20AC;? he told ABC. He also referred to a Kentucky coal mine accident that killed two men, saying he had met with the families and admired the coal minersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; courage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a mining accident that was very tragic,â&#x20AC;? Paul said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then we come in and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fault. Maybe sometimes accidents happen.â&#x20AC;? Mine safety advocate Tony Oppegard said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premature to make such comments because the federal investigation of the Dotiki mine cave-in is not finished. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy for him to say we look for someone to blame,â&#x20AC;? Oppegard said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but the fact is, this company had a horrible safety record.â&#x20AC;?

Clapper is leading candidate for top intelligence post WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The White Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading candidate to replace Dennis Blair as national intelligence director is James R. Clapper, the Pentagonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top intelligence official, current and former U.S. officials said Friday. Two current officials said another candidate is Mike Vickers, the Pentagonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistant secretary for special operations. But a Defense Department official said Vickers has not been contacted for an interview. All the officials spoke on condition of anonymity because a replacement for Blair has not been announced. Clapper currently is defense undersecretary for intelligence. President Barack Obama was already talking to candidates for national intelligence directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job before Blair resigned Thursday under pressure from the White House. Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs said the president had spoken with a number of well-qualified candidates so he could have people ready in case he decided to make a change with the intelligence post. Gibbs wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment on what candidates the president has spoken with, but said an announcement will come soon.

Stocks jump in volatile day; Dow adds 125 points NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Stocks ended sharply higher a day after posting their biggest drops in more than a year. Trading was volatile Friday and there are still worries about how Europe is handling its debt crisis. Analysts said a bounce back after the slide Thursday wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprising. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 125 points after falling below 10,000 in morning trading. The volatility comes after major indexes entered â&#x20AC;&#x153;correctionâ&#x20AC;? mode, having dropped more than 10 percent from their 2010 highs set last month. The gains Friday pulled the Dow back out of correction territory and

left it down 9 percent from its peak. Investors again looked to Europe for direction. The German parliament approved the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share of a $1 trillion plan to help contain debt problems in the European Union. Major stock indexes in Europe were mixed but pulled well off their lows. Traders have been worried that stronger countries like Germany and France will be saddled with heavy debts to help weaker EU countries.

Obama seeks tougher mileage, emission standards

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama directed the government Friday to set the first-ever mileage and pollution limits for big trucks and to tighten rules for future cars and SUVs, setting the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sights on vehicles that run on half the fuel they now use and give off half the pollution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The nation that leads in the clean energy economy will lead the global economy. And I want America to be that nation,â&#x20AC;? Obama declared at the White House as he signed a presidential memorandum that would reshape the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driving habits long after he leaves office. With the catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico underscoring the risks of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heavy reliance on fossil fuels, Obama gave federal agencies just over a year to come up with fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas emission standards for commercial trucks and buses. Such vehicles are big polluters and fuel consumers even though theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re far outnumbered by passenger cars. The Union of Concerned Scientists, an environmental advocacy group, said large trucks represent about 4 percent of all vehicles on U.S. highways but devour more than 20 percent of fuel. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, commercial trucks account for 21 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector â&#x20AC;&#x201D; compared with 33 percent for passenger cars and 29 percent for SUVs,

Richard Petty

Hendrick gives nod to JGR

NASCAR’s King

Racing pioneer, driver, owner still putting fans first

I

t’s been nearly 20 years since Richard Petty drove in his final race, at Atlanta Motor Speedway in the 1992 season finale, but he’s still out there spending his golden years as an ambassador for NASCAR. And that’s in addition to the duties he’s taken on as the head of Richard Petty Motorsports. But that’s nothing new for NASCAR’s longtime King. Lately, he’s been making the media rounds as part of his induction this weekend into the inaugural class of the NASCAR Hall of Fame. He also was the Grand Marshal for Sunday’s Autism Speaks 400 at Dover International Speedway. In between all that, he took time to reflect on racing matters with members of the press at Dover. Interestingly, but not surprisingly, the circuit’s all-time win leader with 200 Cup victories and seven championships said there are plenty of others in NASCAR’s past who could have been alongside him in the Hall’s first class of five. “I am sure there were a lot of people that were more important to the overall deal with putting up money and taking gambles to make NASCAR what it is today,” he said, adding that the sacrifices and struggles of the pioneers aren’t fully appreci-

ated by those who are reaping the benefits today. “A lot of these drivers that are doing pretty well today don’t realize what some of the guys went through to get it to this point,” Petty said. “Bill France took a huge gamble and got people to follow along behind him. You had guys like Junior Johnson, Curtis Turner and Lee Petty that sacrificed a lot way back. To be chosen out of that crowd is just a heck of an honor.” Another place that Petty stands ahead of his peers is in his dealings with fans. Throughout the years, he always seems to find time to sign autographs and visit with fans. The late NASCAR journalist

Bill Robinson often told a tale about the last race of the season in the early 70s, at a short track in Byron, Ga. The race was long over. It was dark and beginning to rain. Still, Petty was there in the pits signing autographs. Robinson, then with The Atlanta Journal, finally asked Petty: “How much longer are you going to stay here?” Petty’s reply: “Until they’re all taken care of.” It’s a concept that many drivers today don’t grasp, and something that Petty often finds himself explaining. “The deal is that for the first 15 or 20 years of NASCAR there were no sponsors,” he said. “The fans were the ones sponsoring because they bought the tickets,

and when the race was over you would go pick up what money you had coming to you depending where you finished. “Back then the fans were who you had to play to because they were the ones that were supporting it. It was a no-brainer to say we had to keep them on our side. We had to keep them buying tickets. “I came through with the Allisons and the Pearsons and that crowd, who did the same thing. They realized that without the fans there wouldn’t be any racing. Without the fans there wouldn’t be a Richard Petty from the stock car part of it.” And Petty pointed out that NASCAR wouldn’t be where it is today without mechanics like his brother Maurice, or his cousin Dale Inman or others like Smokey Yunick and Herb Nab. He hopes future Hall of Fame induction ceremonies will recognize men from the other side of the pit wall. “I hope they look at people that sacrificed for the drivers,” he said. “We are different than football or baseball. You have your first baseman or quarterback and they stand alone. No driver stands alone. It is a team effort, so when you see Richard Petty in the Hall of Fame, Richard Petty just happened to be the one out front.”

The same old new Busch, Earnhardt and the press ASK RICK!

“Is there really a ‘new’ Kyle Busch in that he’s become a more mature, patient driver?”

he wins. Half of my entertainment in this sport comes from Kyle Busch, so I love having him as a teammate.” It is true that Busch, like Stewart, has gotten into team ownership, so he now better understand the ripple effect of cutting remarks and other actions not completely thought out in the heat of the moment. “Working with people and stuff, it shows you that people are important, and there’s a lot more within people than there is just working with them,” he said. “You’ve got a lot of different attitudes, you’ve got a lot of different philosophies, you’ve got a lot of different ways of going about things that it’s hard to put your finger on all the time.”

A: Probably not. It’s reminiscent of the situation a few Q: Does Dale Earnhardt Jr., the driver who usually is years back when Tony Stewart was NASCAR’s resident among the more cooperative with the media, have many hothead.

NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick stirred the pot last week with his comment to reporters in Charlotte that Joe Gibbs Racing had passed his own Hendrick Motorsports crew, performance-wise. It is true that JGR is on a roll of late, winning five of the past seven Sprint Cup races including Kyle Busch’s victory in Sunday’s Autism Speaks 400 at Dover International Speedway. But Hendrick’s own team isn’t bad by any stretch, as evidenced by Jimmie Johnson’s dominating run at Dover before a pit-road-speeding penalty set him back. JGR’s Denny Hamlin, a three-time winner in the past seven races, interpreted Hendrick’s comments as more of a motivational speech to his own team than an honest assessment of the situation. “Rick [Hendrick] does a good job of motivating his team,” Hamlin said. “I just think that is maybe motivation. His team always seems to stay on top. There are peaks and valleys that every team has, and Hendrick is rarely ever on the down slope. “They’re good. The 24 [Jeff Gordon] is one of the best cars every week, and the 48 [Jimmie Johnson] really has just had bad luck lately. We can still consider them the teams to beat.” Joe Gibbs himself pointed out that all it takes is some bad racing luck on his team’s part to turn things back in Hendrick’s favor. “I’m always conscious of the knuckle sandwich that is waiting right around the corner,” he said. “We’re just getting started really here. I’m thrilled that the last seven, eight weeks have gone so well for us, but the reality is that can all turn in a week … “We’ve got great teams out there we’ve talked about [Johnson’s team], and to say that we’re there would be ridiculous ,” Gibbs said. “They pretty much dominated things. They had a great car again [at Dover].”

Concern over Vickers’ illness The news that Brian Vickers was hospitalized with blood clots and wouldn’t be able to race at Dover and possibly other upcoming races, was humbling for many of his peers and helped them to put things in perspective. “When you’re in this sport, you believe that the only thing that matters is this sport,” Jeff Burton said. “But the reality of it is that there are things that are more important. … Sitting out a race, or two, three, four, five or ten, ain’t going to ruin his career. And it’s not going to make it to where he can’t be competitive. “It’s certainly not what he wants, and to him I’m sure it feels like the worst thing that can possibly happen. But the main thing is that he’s healthy. I’ve had to be out, and it’s not a pleasant experience, but he’ll be OK.” Jimmie Johnson told reporters at Dover last Friday that he’d spoken to Vickers by phone. “Until they can find out what’s going on, there’s a lot of worry and concern. It’s weird to talk to a guy, and I talked to him on the phone, and he was just happy, not necessarily happy about being out of the car, but healthy and sounds find and normal.”
