Still alive Walk-off home run pushes Lee County to state semifinals

Lee County ace Dillon Frye is best known for his right arm — but he won this one with his bat. Frye blasted a two-out solo home run in the bottom of the seventh inning to lift the Yellow Jackets to a 4-3 win over Apex on Wednesday night. The victory moves Lee County into the East Region finals, where they will play a best-of-three series against Wilmington Laney. FULL STORY, PAGE 1B

n effort to create a tourism authority in Lee County seems to be gaining momentum, but key participants in the process are still sorting out how the body would be funded and how it would operate. One thing the so-called “tourism and retiree recruitment” study group agrees upon, however, is this: it’s time someone takes the reins where tourism is involved.

tate House Rep. Jimmy Love Sr. (D-Lee) declined to introduce a bill Wednesday that would’ve allowed Sanford to enact a 3 percent occupancy tax to pay for a tourism authority in the area after the Sanford City Council failed to offer unanimous support for it. The council voted 4-1 to endorse the bill that may be introduced in the N.C. House giving the city the ability to enact

a 3 percent tax on hotel receipts to pay for tourism promotion. Councilman Charles Taylor voted against, while Linwood Mann and Mike Stone were absent from the special called meeting, which took place before the council’s regular law and finance meeting at city hall. Taylor said he voted against the endorsement because it unfairly impacted large companies such as Pfizer, who often bring consultants in to stay at local hotels.

Frontier Spinning begins $15.5M expansion Special to The Herald


The study group, organized by Sanford Mayor Cornelia Olive, Lee County Board of Commissioners Chairman Richard Hayes and CCCC President Dr. Bud Marchant, has met four times in the last six weeks to discuss how to promote the area as a destination — both for tourists and for retirees.

SANFORD — Frontier Spinning Mills has started a $15.5 million expansion project in Sanford that should initially add 45 new technology-based jobs, introduce more advanced machinery to the company’s local operation and provide a substantial boost to the local tax base. From its headquarters in San-

ford, Frontier Spinning manufactures yarns for the knitting and weaving trades and operates facilities in North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. Based on figures published last fall, the company employs about 1,100 people — with 300 to 400 working in Sanford — and produces more than 500 million pounds of yarn each year. John Maness, executive vice

president for Frontier Spinning, said the expansion followed the company’s decision to adopt a new technology that spins cotton into yarn at higher speeds with better quality. Once the decision was made to expand, the question became where to do it. “Having our headquarters here certainly factored into the decision, but that was just one consideration,” Maness said. “We

looked carefully for places where we could find everything necessary to make this work. “That includes a skilled workforce, a building that could be adapted quickly for the new technology and a financial package that helped manage the risk required by such a major investment. All of the pieces needed to be in place, and we found that here.”

District’s school buses go green

PITTSBORO (MCT) — The blubber hits the road as chicken fat and used cooking oil are now some of the ingredients in the fuel powering some of the state’s public school buses. Chatham County is joining 15 North Carolina counties to use biodiesel in school buses. The other participating counties are Bladen, Brunswick, Burke, Catawba, Edgecombe, Dare, Durham, Gaston, Martin, Onslow, Orange, Pender, Tyrrell, Union and Wake. In 2007, the state legislature established an annual target of a minimum of two percent biodiesel in public school buses statewide. Piedmont Biofuels, Potter Oil & Tire Co., and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction are working together on the project. This initiative is hoped to be the beginning of a transition to using cleaner fuel in more school districts. “We were pleased with the initial response from school districts,� said NCDPI Transportation Services Section Chief Derek Graham. “The environmental benefit of having school buses on the road is extremely significant if you compare it to the congestion and pollution that would result from every parent driving their children to school. Using biodiesel makes the benefit all the greater, and decreases our dependence on foreign oil.� The biodiesel for this project is produced at Piedmont Biofuels in Pittsboro and then delivered to Potter Oil in Aurora where it is mixed with regular diesel into a B20 combination, meaning the final substance is 20 percent biodiesel. The fuel combination is enough to reduce harmful emissions by around 20 percent, according to Rachel Burton of Piedmont

Neolia Cole Womack of Cole’s Pottery recently donated two pottery vases to the Lee County Partnership for Children for a raffle conducted during Sanford’s Pottery Festival. The vases netted the Partnership $816, which will be used to support the Lee County Imagination Library, a literacy program sponsored by the Partnership. Janice Matthews, a resident of Sanford and winner of one of the vases, said, “We never win anything, so this experience has been really exciting.� The donation comes as the Lee County Imagination Library surpasses 1,000 program participants. The $816 will provide 12 books for 29 Lee County children over one year through the Lee County Imagination Library program.

Concerns raised about incinerator’s effect on air quality RALEIGH (MCT) — Residents of Chatham, Alamance, Person and Orange counties called for stricter air quality standards to protect the health of children, seniors and pregnant women at a state hearing for a Haw River medical waste incinerator’s permit renewal on Tuesday. Burning waste from hospitals, labs and doctors’ offices releases particulates, toxins and metals like mercury and lead into the air. The state’s permit system requires companies to limit the amount of those substances that can be released into the atmosphere during incineration. “I am very concerned about the health and welfare of everyone in this county. We need to be very careful with this ... I don’t want anything incinerated that can be disposed of in another way,� said Willie Mae Currin, of Graham. Currin — a charter member of the Senior Tar Heel Legislature, which advocates for seniors’ health and rights to the state General Assembly — was among about 80 who attended the Tuesday night hearing on Stericycle Inc.’s state permit to operate two dual-chamber incinerators at its Haw River facility. The Illinois-based company operates two dual-chamber incinerators that can burn 2 tons of waste per hour. Stericycle’s is one of three medical waste incinerators operating in North Carolina. — Burlington Times-News

Partnership says it reported Local man discrepancies to state auditor to serve 7 years for murder

FAYETTEVILLE (MCT) — An official with the Harnett County Partnership for Children said her office initially reported the suspected fraud that led to an investigation by the State Auditor’s Office. The Auditor’s Office announced Tuesday that it found evidence that a contractor for the partnership misused $180,447 in Smart Start funding. Officials with the company, Community Education and Programs Inc., or CEAP, could face criminal charges after the results of the investigation were forwarded to several state and federal agencies, including the FBI, the Internal Revenue Service and the State Bureau of Investigation. Smart Start is a state program that provides early education funding to counties through public and private partnerships. The money is administered through nonprofit groups, such as the Harnett County Partnership for Children. A spokesman for the

Auditor’s Office could only say the investigation began after the office received a tip on its fraud hotline. Lisa Familo, executive director of the Harnett County Partnership for Children, said Wednesday her office called the hotline after finding irregularities in its dealings with CEAP. “During monitoring visits some red flags were picked up on,� Familo said. Familo was named executive director of the partnership in November, after the alleged fraud took place, she said. She also served as executive director between 2003 and 2006. According to the report from State Auditor Beth A. Wood, CEAP fraudulently obtained reimbursements from the partnership. In each case, CEAP submitted copies of checks to the Harnett County Partnership for Children but never mailed checks to the

companies it claimed to be paying. CEAP was working under two contracts with the partnership that totaled nearly $375,000. The contracts were for an early childhood professional development program and a quality enhancement program that provided training and materials to day care centers. Familo said she was shocked when she realized what had happened. “I don’t think many people would have picked up on that level of deceit,� she said. “I don’t know if there is anything the organization could have done differently. In response to the investigation, Familo said the partnership had instituted stronger monitoring policies and was now verifying information via original invoices instead of copies. Most of the changes were included in recommendations made to the partnership by the state’s investigators.

From wire reports SANFORD — A Sanford man was sentenced to more than seven years in prison Wednesday for killing his former girlfriend’s new boyfriend two years ago, authorities said. Tereso DeJesus Benitez Alvarez, 37, of 227 Temple Ave., pleaded guilty last week to second-degree murder in the June 21, 2008, death of Rodolfo Nolqsco Chavez, 29, of Sanford. Police said Alvarez and his cousin broke into his former girlfriend’s home and Alvarez stabbed Chavez in the chest numerous times. The cousin, Jose Alvarez, had his charges dismissed because of lack of evidence. Tereso Alvarez was sentenced to between 94 and 122 months in prison.

DNA should be used in criminal process Their View

From Hickory Daily Record


A DNA sample is like a fullbody fingerprint. We don’t see why DNA can’t be collected from suspects in violent or sex crimes as forensic evidence. Taking fingerprints and photos of suspected felons is routine. DNA samples should be routine, also. Civil rights advocates contend that DNA should not be taken unless a suspect is convicted. That makes no sense from a forensic standpoint. Yet, the General Assembly is stymied by those who advocate for suspects’ rights.

A proposal to allow law officers to take DNA samples of violent of sex criminals

Our stance: Every available resource should be used to determine innocence or guilt. DNA save money or establish guilt.

A proposal that would enable law officers to take DNA samples from suspects in violent or sex crimes is languishing because lawmakers can’t make up their minds. The proposal would expunge the records and the DNA samples, along with fingerprints, in cases where a person was not convicted. That’s a better deal than a person gets for any arrest record. Police know how many times a citizen has been arrested, no matter what the outcome of the case. The Department of Motor Vehicles keeps a running total on everybody’s traffic citations.

On one hand, a DNA sample could result in a speedier conviction. On the other hand, DNA could be the element that exonerates a suspect. Our system of justice presumes innocence. That presumption does not prevent the gathering of evidence, fingerprinting, court hearings and setting of bond. In some cases, bond can be denied and a suspect held in jail until trial. DNA is no more than a fingerprint. There are high-profile instances where DNA has established the innocence of a person convicted of a crime after years of

imprisonment. We think every available resource should be used to determine innocence or guilt at the outset of the criminal process. DNA could stop a case before it costs money, time and grief for someone wrongly accused of a heinous crime. On the other hand, DNA could establish guilt beyond all doubt. That would uphold victims’ rights and the pursuit of justice. Use the DNA. If the suspect is not guilty, expunge the record. Don’t let the sample make it into the state’s criminal database. It’s a satisfactory solution to the legislative impasse.

Coastal insurance


ALEIGH — Judging from the last week, the fight over coastal homeowners insurance rates in North Carolina isn’t over. The sore feelings left over from last year’s legislative rewrite of coastal insurance rules showed up in an early version of the $19 billion state budget plan passed by the Senate. Tucked into the 170-page document was a little provision stripping the state insurance commissioner of the power to set rates. Hmm. Wonder how that got there? Senate leader Marc Basnight, he of the land of surf and waves, fessed up that the idea came from him. It wasn’t supposed to be stashed in budget bill, though. Or so he said. After Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin screamed loud and long (for a day), the provision was dropped. ... Complaints keep popping up. While Goodwin fumed, a county commissioner from Brunswick County quizzed House Speaker Joe Hackney about how he planned to help coastal homeowners. No doubt, many of the complaints are being generated by people who don’t live on the beach and who don’t own million-dollar homes. When Goodwin’s predecessor, the late Jim Long, agreed to a coastal homeowners rate increase in 2008, inland homeowners in coastal counties got hit too. Those inland areas also are in the territory insured by the state-backed coastal homeowners plan known as the Beach Plan. Long agreed to the rate increase under pressure from insurers, some of them threatening to leave the state because of rising liabilities and their role in backing losses by the Beach Plan. If insurers had decided to stop writing homeowners policies in the state — and one did — we’d all pay more for insurance. There is also the inconvenient fact that the Beach Plan is state-backed, and the state is really all of us. If the plan’s reserves and reinsurance were wiped out by a big hurricane or series of hurricanes, we’d all pay, with either higher insurance rates, one-time assessments or tax dollars that went to rebuild coastal communities. So, the sickness isn’t higher rates. That’s a symptom. The sickness is the rising liability of the state-backed plan. Just since 2003, the value of property covered by the plan has risen from $17.8 billion to $69.8 billion. The reasons for the increase are many, but a coastal development boom in which bigger, more expensive waterfront homes became more prevalent is one factor. ... Of course, coastal communities benefited through higher property tax collections. Still, those benefits might not comfort someone who lives in a modest home 50 miles from the beach but has seen their insurance rates double or triple over the last few years. They also might not outweigh the subtle ways in which those homeowners have helped subsidize the waterfront boom.

Too much sermonizing


AN DIEGO — For many Americans, the only thing that makes them angrier than having illegal immigrants stream in from Mexico is getting a lecture from the President of Mexico about on how to treat the new arrivals. Of course, Americans feel differently when we’re doing the lecturing. President Obama has given his share of sermons. Consider his speech at Cairo University last year in which Obama scolded three different parties in the course of a few minutes. “Palestinians must abandon violence,” Obama said. “Israel must also live up to its obligation to ensure that Palestinians can live, and work, and develop their society. ... Finally, the Arab states must recognize that the Arab peace initiative was an important beginning, but not the end of their responsibilities.” Still, when it comes to finger-wagging, Americans must think it’s better to give than to receive. At the moment, many of my countrymen are fuming over the fact that Mexican President Felipe Calderon, having been given the honor of addressing Congress, urged the United States to get on with immigration reform and criticized the new immigration law in Arizona. That law requires local and state police to determine the legal status of anyone they suspect to be in the country illegally. Those familiar with police work know this can’t be done without taking race into account. And yet Arizona promises it will be. Calderon isn’t buying it. And neither are the 70 percent of Latinos who oppose the law, according to a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. “It is a law that not only ignores a reality that cannot be erased by decree,” Calderon told lawmakers, “but also introduces a terrible idea (of ) using racial profiling as the basis for law enforcement.” To many Republicans, those were fighting words. The disgruntled include Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., who took to the House floor a few hours later to condemn what he called Calderon’s “highly inappropriate” remarks. “I rise to take strong exception to the speech of the President of Mexico while in this chamber today,” McClintock said. “The Mexican government has made it very clear for many years that it holds American sovereignty in contempt and President Calderon’s behavior as a guest of the Congress confirms and underscores this attitude.” From there, McClintock drifted off on a right-wing tangent about the virtues of assimilation. He criticized those who seek “to hyphenate Americans, to develop linguistic divisions, to assign rights and preferences based on race and ethnicity, and to elevate devotion to foreign ideologies and traditions, while at the same time denigrating American culture, American values and American founding principles.” What does Calderon and his speech have to do with all this? You got me. But then I’m not the politician eagerly tossing out slabs of

Ruben Navarrette Jr. Columnist Ruben Navarrette Jr. is a columnist with The San Diego Union-Tribune

red meat to the nativist cheering section. At one point, McClintock invited Calderon to return to the United States — as an immigrant. Perhaps the congressman thinks that Calderon — with a degree in economics, a law degree, and a masters from Harvard — could do his landscaping. “This is a debate of, by and for the American people,” McClintock said. “If President Calderon wishes to participate in that debate, I invite him to obey our immigration laws, apply for citizenship, do what 600,000 legal immigrants to our nation are doing right now, learn our history and our customs, and become an American. And then he will have every right to participate in that debate. Until then, I would politely invite him to have the courtesy while a guest of this Congress to abide by the fundamental rules of diplomacy between civilized nations not to meddle in each other’s domestic debates.” Translation: Mind your own business, amigo. This sounds familiar. In 2005, my friend Tony Garza, the former U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, ruffled feathers south of the border when he gave a speech in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. Garza lectured Mexicans about how a reliance on oil exports and remittances from migrants in the United States was no substitute for a national economic policy. The Mexican elites hit the roof. Interior Secretary Santiago Creel, who was eyeing the presidency at the time, angrily insisted that outsiders should not meddle in Mexico’s internal affairs. Translation: Mind your own business, amigo. It turns out the Americans and the Mexicans aren’t so different after all. Both parties have been known to have thin skins and deep-seated insecurities. And neither likes hearing criticism from a neighbor — especially when it’s true.

Today’s Prayer For by grace you have been saved through faith, ... not of works. (Ephesians 2:8,9) PRAYER: Father, thank You for Your love, in that while we were sinners, Christ died for us. Amen.

This Memorial Day we will remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice of their lives in the service of our country. Those who have paid toward the cost of freedom with their precious lives are a reminder to us all that freedom is not free. God offers comfort to anyone who is hurting over the loss of a loved one. He understands, more than anyone, that the act of giving your life for someone is the highest degree of proof that you love them. For God so loved the world He gave His One and only Son Jesus, who shed His precious blood and sacrificed His life for the sins of man. Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” But He proved an even higher degree of love by giving His life for His enemies. Romans 5:8 states “God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners [enemies], Christ died for us.” The free gift of salvation He offers to man also was not free. After His resurrection (before His ascension) Jesus told His disciples all power was given unto Him in heaven and in earth, and that He would be with them until the end. Remember that Jesus is still with His followers; He enables and leads Christians in the spiritual battles being fought today. God’s Word reminds us our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, powers, worldly forces of darkness, and the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Christ continues to fight for us in this unseen war, “therefore take up the full armor of God and stand firm.” So on this Memorial Day, remember the soldiers who fought and died so that you might enjoy your freedom as a citizen of this great country, the U.S.A. Remember the cost that was paid for this privilege. Also consider Jesus the Captain of salvation. He fought and died, paying the ultimate price to redeem your soul and spirit, so that you might have eternal life and enjoy God forever as a citizen in His eternal kingdom which He has prepared and promised for believers. The victory Jesus won over Satan, death, and the grave gives us a hope and a future to look forward to after this brief life on Earth. In this life we can joyfully yet only vaguely comprehend what His victory truly means for us, but for our life hereafter we cannot begin to comprehend the full meaning of His sacrifice for us, or the cost the Son of God paid for us so that we may live with Him in heaven for eternity.

PERSONAL CARE SERVICES House health budget-writers are willing to keep in place programs that allow North Carolina Medicaid patients to receive in-home help with cooking, bathing and other living activities. A subcommittee rolled out a draft of a $3.9 billion spending plan for the Department of Health and Human Services that would allow two personal care service programs to remain intact. Proposals by Gov. Beverly Perdue and the Senate would eliminate the programs and replace them with ones to cover less than half the current 38,000 patients. Subcommittee co-chairwoman Rep. Verla Insko, D-Orange, said she believes a new agency initiative in which nurses are evaluating patient needs will save the state tens of millions of dollars. SCHOOLS FOR DEAF, BLIND Family members of several deaf children asked lawmakers at a public hearing Monday night to follow the Senate’s lead and move oversight of residential schools for the deaf and blind from the Department of Health and Human Services to the Department of Public Instruction. But the House health budget subcommittee wants to keep the authority within HHS for the time being. Rep. Verla Insko, D-Orange, said subcommittee leaders are concerned about making a big policy shift without studying the matter further and ensure there are no unintended consequences. The change likely will be on the table during final budget negotiations, Insko said. The subcommittee’s draft budget would still eliminate 50 positions in the Office of Education Services within HHS like the Senate. SOMETHING FOR SUSIE Penalties could be more severe for people who maliciously abuse or kill animals in legislation approved unanimously

by the full House. The measure is called “Susie’s Law,� named after a dog beaten and burned in Greensboro but survived. The perpetrator received probation despite pleading guilty to felony animal cruelty. The bill would raise the severity of the crime to as much as eight months behind bars, although a judge could still have discretion to order community service or probation. The measure was approved 113-0 and now goes to the Senate to consider a concurrence motion.

EDUCATION REFORM The House is keeping on the fast track a bill sought by Gov. Beverly Perdue that supporters say should improve the state’s chances to win federal “Race to the Top� education grants. The House gave its final approval to legislation that lays out four options for local education leaders — with approval from the State Board of Education — to use to improve continually low-performing schools. The bill passed 70-43 despite complaints from Republicans that it won’t do enough to improve the state’s application score and that it creates schools similar to charter schools without eliminating the state’s 100-charter cap. The Perdue administration wants to cite the change in its application it must get to Washington by next Tuesday. Bill proponent Rep. Rick Glazier, D-Cumberland, said the bill follows Obama administration guidelines. The bill now heads to the Senate, which must decide whether to accept the House measure. CALENDAR SHIFT School systems in 11 mountain counties could hold longer class days in the coming weeks to make up for snow days during a bad winter in legislation approved overwhelmingly in the House. Rep. Cullie Tarleton, D-Watauga, originally offered the bill to cover Ashe, Avery and

Watauga counties after each of their school districts missed more than 20 days of schools due to bad weather. Rep. David Guice, R-Transylvania, successfully added eight more counties — Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Jackson, Macon, Swain and Transylvania. The current law requires students to be in class at least 180 days and for 1,000 hours of instruction. The bill would allow districts in the counties this school year to hold class for less than 180 days if they still have at least 1,000 hours. The bill now goes to the Senate.

WEDNESDAY’S SCORECARD Introduced bills: n S1433, to make a public record letters of recommendation, disciplinary actions and other career information pertaining to state employees, and to allow state employees to inspect their entire personnel file. Sponsor: Sen. Phil Berger, R-Rockingham. n S1407, to legalize again video poker machines and provide oversight for the games to the North Carolina State Lottery Commission. Sponsor: Sen. Julia Boseman, D-New Hanover. n S1404, to expand the scope of state investigative grand juries to include public corruption charges. Sponsor: Sen. Josh Stein, D-Wake. n S1382, to allow local governments to supplement the salaries of some employees who serve in non-elected or non-magistrate positions within the state judicial branch of government. Sponsor: Sen. Dan Clodfelter, DMecklenburg. n H1979, to reinstate cigarette tax stamps. Sponsors: Reps. Paul Luebke, D-Durham, and Verla Insko, D-Orange. n H1963, to require driver’s license applicants to be able to speak or read and write English with enough proficiency so that multi-lingual license tests don’t have to be produced by the Division of Motor Vehicles.

The dependents must be covered starting later this year as required by the federal health insurance overhaul law. Approved 79-34. Next: To the Senate.

AROUND THE STATEHOUSE Hall of Fame NFL quarterback and twotime Super Bowl champion Bob Griese visited the Senate to talk about the gridiron and his friend, Sen. David Hoyle, DGaston. Griese and Hoyle both live part-time in Banner Elk and are often golf partners. Griese said he came to visit Raleigh to see what Hoyle did at the Legislature and honor him because he will step down from the Senate this year after nine terms.

Tourism Continued from Page 1A

Sr. didn’t submit the bill the city requested because he felt it was controversial, and because the city council didn’t pass it unanimously (see accompanying story) — Olive feels the group’s work is developing traction. She said the group will have success because members have made a commitment not to wait until a tourism bureau is established before beginning the marketing process and working on projects such as creating a visitors’ center, which could be operated by volunteers. “That, to me, is such as important thing,� she said. “We have a lot of really good marketing tools we can use. And to have a visitors’ bureau, staffed with good, articulate people who really know Sanford and Broadway and Lee County, is so important.� The failure of the occupancy tax bill was a definite “setback� — “We’ll regroup and try a different approach,� Olive said — but she expressed confidence in the “groundswell of support� and the direction of the effort so far. “I’ve been trying to get consensus on this now for going on five years,� she said. “It finally looks like we’re heading in a direction where something will actually happen.� Because both the city and the county, as well as Broadway and the “Second Century� group — which also has worked to promote the market — have expressed willingness to help pay for printed

materials, much can be accomplished before January. That’s when the group would ask Love — or his opponent in the November House election, Republican Mike Stone — to sponsor another occupancy tax bill when the General Assembly convenes for its long session. (Stone, incidentally, who serves with Olive on the city council, signed a no-tax pledge in 2008 and wasn’t present at Wednesday’s called meeting.) An attractive, concise marketing piece is something the area lacks; an effective brochure and website would generate visitor traffic and build on what the Sanford Pottery Festival, Temple Theatre and Tobacco Road have helped generate. Participants in the group, which have varied over the course of the meetings, have other issues on their collective plates. In addition to discussing marketing materials, the visitors’ center in downtown Sanford (and a possible “satellite� center in Broadway) and programs to attract retirees, they’ve discussed the possible purchase of the old train depot at Depot Park in downtown Sanford from the Sanford Board of Realtors. The city has engaged in talks with the realtors’ group on other occasions through the years about the purchase, but negotiations over the cost and how the city would fund purchase didn’t produce a deal. A letter to the realtor group from the city regarding opening dialogue about the purchase has been drafted, and was read to participants at an earlier May meeting of the tourism study group, but has

not been sent, according to Joni Martin, who helped write the letter. Martin, the development director of Progressive Contracting Co. and participant in the tourism study group, expects the letter, which would be delivered under the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letterhead, to be sent soon. A year-old appraisal of the building valued it at more than $200,000, and real estate agents in attendance at Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting seemed to indicate theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d support the idea of selling the depot. Grant possibilities to fund a significant part of the purchase have been available in the past and are being explored, officials say. If acquired, one possibility for the depot is to be used to house the tourism authority, the Sanford Area Chamber of Commerce and the Lee County Economic Development Corporation. The chamber is current renting space in the old city hall on Charlotte Avenue and the EDC is located in the old federal building on Carthage Street. Martin, who at one time served as president of the chamber of commerce, was in attendance at Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supportive of the idea of promoting and marketing the area, but like others still has questions about some of the ideas the group is addressing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So many good things are going on, but nothing is united right now,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody can agree on where it needs to go right now. Things are not cohesive.â&#x20AC;? Almost 60 people attended the first meeting back on April 15, though the two subsequent meetings prior to Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had much smaller attendance. Those taking part Monday included officials from the city, Broadway and county, business leaders, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Second Centuryâ&#x20AC;? representatives and some real estate professionals. CCCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marchant, who was in attendance Monday, traced the genesis of this effort to a presentation at a Lee County Committee of 100 meeting a year ago where Pat Mason, the director of the Center for Carolina Living â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which publishes a website and magazine devoted to travel and tourism in the Carolinas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; spoke about tourism efforts in which heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It whetted everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appetite for creating a tour-

ism/retirement agenda for the county,â&#x20AC;? Marchant said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since then it has taken on a life of its own.â&#x20AC;? Marchant was the president of the Beaufort, S. C., chamber of commerce some 20 years ago when Mason delivered a message to leaders there to â&#x20AC;&#x153;market yourself, build on your strengths, revitalize downtown and look for things to attract people to Beaufort.â&#x20AC;? Marchant said leaders there initially thought Mason was â&#x20AC;&#x153;crazy.â&#x20AC;? But they took Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice to heart and now, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the top retirement destinations in the country.â&#x20AC;? The same might be said of Sanford and Lee County one day, according to Marchant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have the same type of people involved and the same type of energy at these meetings,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look, Lee County is a fabulous place to retire. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got everything a retiring couple could look for â&#x20AC;&#x201D; great location, weather, the right mix of business. Everything could be improved upon, but in terms of bringing people here, Lee County absolutely can be that place.â&#x20AC;? Marchant said it was exciting to see the group coming together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gotten off to kind of a messy start, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of how the leaders in the community are looking at it. This is something that could be a great benefit to Lee County.â&#x20AC;? Bob Joyce, the president of the Sanford Area Chamber of Commerce, agrees, but says the issues at hand need more exploration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do think the meetings have been a good start, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a thorough discussion of how a tourism effort would work,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten down to really talking to the stakeholders about how this would actually work. We need to have those discussions before we go any further...we need more input from the community.â&#x20AC;? The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next meeting date hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been set yet, but Olive indicated she was looking forward to that input and to seeing results from the work that would come in the next few months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to start getting people here to visit because of what we are and what we have, instead of waiting for miracles to happen,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Tax Continued from Page 1A

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for tourism, but not for a tax increase on the backs of our companies,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said at the meeting. He also objected to Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request that the vote be unanimous because he felt it â&#x20AC;&#x153;held the council hostage.â&#x20AC;? He said later in the meeting that he knew of several instances in which Love introduced bills that did not have unanimous approval from local governments. Stone is running against Love for the House seat in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general election, and Stone has also signed an Americans for Prosperity pledge that he will not raise taxes as a councilman. Taylor said Love wanted an unanimous vote from the council because if Stone voted in favor of the bill, he would essentially be voting for a tax increase. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was nothing but electioneering politics on Jimmyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mike is his opponent and he wanted to hold his feet to the fire. This is not a chess match, and it takes away from our right to serve the people who have elected us.â&#x20AC;? But Love said under the rules governing this short session of the N.C. House, proposed legislation has to be submitted to the drafting division of the legislature by May 19 and bills filed by May 26. In addition, representatives in the district affected by the bill â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in this case, Love and Sen. Bob Atwater â&#x20AC;&#x201D; must certify the bills donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require a public hearing and are â&#x20AC;&#x153;non-controversial.â&#x20AC;? Love said it was his understanding some members of the Sanford Area Chamber of Commerceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors were concerned about the bill â&#x20AC;&#x201D; qualifying it as â&#x20AC;&#x153;controversial.â&#x20AC;? In addition, Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal policy is that in order for him to submit a bill, the principal sponsoring group requesting the legislation must pass it unanimously. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city council didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give it unanimous approval,â&#x20AC;? he said late Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t certify the bill if there was any controversy about it, and the vote was not unanimous. They ran me too close on this issue. I told them early on they needed to be unanimous.â&#x20AC;? Love said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if House rules would allow the bill to be added another bill for consideration for a vote, a tactic legislators have used in the long session â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still looking into that,â&#x20AC;? he said â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but indicated heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be open to working on the issue again in the long session come January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can knock it out then if we need to,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will have plenty

of time to do the planning we need to do to get it through.â&#x20AC;? A 3 percent occupancy tax is currently levied on all hotels and motels in the city and county. Legislation requires the tax revenues generated to go toward funding the operation of the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center, which also relies on rental fees for its budget. The current tax generates about $175,500 in revenues for the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center. That, plus a $53,510 contribution from Lee County and rental income of about $121,000, provides the civic centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operating budget. Taylor said he would be in favor of the city putting aside a flat rate of â&#x20AC;&#x153;$50,000 to $100,000â&#x20AC;? to contribute to the creation of a tourism authority. City Attorney Susan Patterson reminded the council, though, that the bill would only give the council the authority to pass the tax, not enact it outright. Councilman Poly Cohen said he favored the creation of a tourism authority, adding that it was long overdue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been talking about a tourism bureau for 10 or 15 years, and we need it if we are going to grow Sanford the way we want to,â&#x20AC;? Cohen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hotel rates are cheap here already. I think this is a great way to do it.â&#x20AC;? Councilman Sam Gaskins agreed, saying he thought the hotel tax would be less burdensome on the local ecomony than simply giving the tourism suthority funds from current revenue streams, most of which comes from proerty taxes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we need a reduction in property taxes if we are really looking to help citizens and businesses,â&#x20AC;? Gaskins said. Sanford Mayor Cornelia Olive was also in favor of the tax. In a meeting Monday of a tourism and retiree recruitment study group she organized, she told the nearly 30 people present she was sending a letter to Love asking him to propose legislation that would boost the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hotel and motel occupancy tax from 3 to 6 percent, with the new revenues directed to a Sanford Area Tourism Development Authority, which has yet to be formed. Olive wrote that the occupancy tax would â&#x20AC;&#x153;generate revenue to fund a tourism office and, ultimately, coordinate all other marketing efforts. Since the mission was defined, delegates from our local accommodations industry have participated, supported, and encouraged us.â&#x20AC;? â??

STATE BRIEFS County votes to say prayers before board meetings

HENDERSONVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Commissioners in one North Carolina county have decided to continue opening their monthly meetings with prayers despite a court ruling ordering another county to end the practice. The Times-News of Hendersonville reported that Henderson County commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to continue opening meetings with prayer. About 40 people spoke for and against saying prayer before the meetings. A U.S. District Court judge has ruled that Forsyth County commissioners violated the U.S. Constitution when they allowed prayers with sectarian references before meetings. Judge James Beaty said the county could open meetings without a prayer or could allow prayers that contain no sectarian references. Forsyth County is appealing Beatyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling.

State leaders court companies dangling 1,500 jobs

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; North Carolina legislators say they have some very big business deals on the line and need to increase the tax breaks that will reel those companies in. The state Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Finance Committee on Wednesday approved a package of tax breaks aimed at attracting two computer data centers, an energy turbine manufacturer, and a plant converting wood pulp to paper. Mecklenburg County Sen. Dan Clodfelter said state business recruiters are close to completing commitments from companies that would mean more than 1,500 jobs and nearly $2 billion in investment combined. Legislative fiscal analysts say the targeted tax breaks are expected to cost about $9 million next year if North Carolina lands all the expansions, and nearly $14 million the following year before the scope of the lost taxes diminishes.

electricity production more from traditional sources to solar energy in the next 20 years. The research arm of Environment North Carolina released a report on Wednesday and held a news conference outside the Legislative Building. The report based findings on raising the percentage of power that comes from solar sources to 14 percent of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electricity consumption by 2030. Current law requires less than 1 percent of electric power to originate from the sun by 2018. Report co-author Elizabeth Ouzts said lawmakers could help the state encourage solar power by approving a tax break to those who build plants for renewable energy manufacturing.

Senate delays committee meeting on debt package RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The North Carolina Senate has delayed a formal discussion of a proposal to borrow $451 million to repair state government buildings, expand two university engineering schools and buy equipment for higher education. Rules Committee Chairman Sen. David Hoyle says the bill was pulled from Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from the Finance Committee because leaders want to slow the measure. It was introduced Tuesday and could come up in committee next week. The borrowing wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require statewide voter approval. More than half the funds would pay to complete buildings to expand the engineering schools at North Carolina State University and North Carolina A&T.

Bill would limit cities with broadband By EMERY P. DALESIO Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Becky and Dale Carlson are relying on fast and cheap Internet access as they sell photos and online greeting cards in the home business they hope will carry them into retirement. So Becky Carlson said she opposes a legislative proposal that would make it harder for cities and towns to build broadband Internet systems that compete with big telephone and cable companies and hold down rates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important to a lot of small business, but especially us because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only online,â&#x20AC;? said Becky Carlson of Apex, who runs Bluemoonistic Images. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Photography files are so huge. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t send large files if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have fast Internet.â&#x20AC;? The Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday postponed considering legislation that would force municipalities to

get voter approval before borrowing money to build a competing broadband network. The bill is the latest in a series of efforts by telecom corporations to keep local governments out of the broadband business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is another iteration of the previous ones we have seen over the last three years that are designed to contain and cripple existing systems, and set the bar so high for new systems that it would be difficult for communities to move forward,â&#x20AC;? said Doug Paris, an assistant to Salisburyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s city manager. Salisbury has borrowed $30 million to build a fiber-optic network. It will begin testing the system in a few months. The telecom companies are opposed by the politically influential North Carolina League of Municipalities and corporate giants Google and Intel. They argue that crimping municipal broadband could stifle economic growth in a

wired age. Cable and phone companies have been urging the General Assembly to restrict municipal broadband services since a 2005 state appeals court ruling upheld the right of towns and cities to offer their residents broadband. Companies argue that local governments have an unfair advantage because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to pay taxes and can subsidize their rates, undercutting the corporate competitors. Sen. David Hoyle, D-Gaston, said tax-free government enterprises shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be competing with business, but a compromise with municipalities is being negotiated. The Senate billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sponsor said stopping local governments from adding broadband to the range of utility services may save municipalities from future losses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to own a cable system that may become obsolete and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to say to us (legislators), â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Please save

us,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hoyle said. He pointed to news earlier this month that residents of Davidson and Mooresville, north of Charlotte, face a projected $6.4 million revenue shortfall at the local cable system the cities bought in 2007. The two communities spent $92 million to buy and upgrade the lines for MI-Connection. The resulting service offers cable TV, telephone and Internet to about 15,000 customers, but it has struggled to hold on to them. The North Carolina conflict is playing out amid a national push to extend broadband to corners of the country that private enterprise hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reached. Congress included $7.2 billion in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stimulus bill to expand broadband to overlooked parts of the country. The new networks promise to offer speeds 20 to 2,000 times faster than the data lines now reaching into most American homes.


Jury finds police chief guilty in 1972 murder JACKSONVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A North Carolina jury has found a small-town police chief guilty in the shooting death of a Marine sergeant 37 years ago. The Daily News of Jacksonville reported that 57-year-old George Hayden was convicted

BP employs â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;top killâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; method

COVINGTON, La. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; BP on Wednesday launched its latest bid to plug the gushing well in the Gulf of Mexico by force-feeding it heavy drilling mud, a maneuver known as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;top killâ&#x20AC;? that has never before been tried 5,000 feet underwater. The oil giantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief executive earlier gave the procedure a 60 to 70 percent chance of working, and President Barack Obama cautioned Wednesday there were â&#x20AC;&#x153;no guarantees.â&#x20AC;? BP spokesman Steve Rinehart said the company will pump mud for hours, and officials have indicated it may be a couple of days before they know whether the procedure is working. The top kill involves pumping enough mud into the gusher to overcome the flow of oil, and engineers plan to follow it up with cement to try to permanently seal the well. A live video stream showed pictures of the oil gushing and the blowout preventer, the five-story device the mud was being pumped into. A weak spot in the device could blow under the pressure, causing a brand new leak. Gene Beck, a petroleum engineering professor at Texas A&M in College Station, said the endeavor would likely fail quickly if the mud could not overcome the pressure of the oil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The longer it goes, maybe the better news that is,â&#x20AC;? Beck said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are hoping that nothing breaks, that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

An image from a live video feed the oil plume is seen on the website early Wednesday. The oil company planned a â&#x20AC;&#x153;top killâ&#x20AC;? designed to choke off the gusher of oil at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico by force-feeding it heavy drilling mud and cement early Wednesday. have any failures in what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pumping into.â&#x20AC;? BP PLC was leasing the rig Deepwater Horizon when it exploded April 20, killing 11 workers and triggering the spill that has so far spewed at least 7 million gallons into the Gulf. Oil has begun coating birds and washing into Louisianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delicate wetlands. Witness statements obtained by The Associated Press show senior managers complained BP was â&#x20AC;&#x153;taking shortcutsâ&#x20AC;? the day of the explosion by replacing heavy drilling fluid with saltwater in the well that blew out. Truitt Crawford, a roustabout for drilling rig owner Transocean Ltd., told Coast Guard investigators about the complaints. The seawater, which would have provided less weight to contain surging pressure

from the ocean depths, was being used to prepare for dropping a final blob of cement into the well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I overheard upper management talking saying that BP was taking shortcuts by displacing the well with saltwater instead of mud without sealing the well with cement plugs, this is why it blew out,â&#x20AC;? Crawford said in his statement. BP declined to comment. The statements show workers talked just minutes before the blowout about pressure problems in the well. At first, nobody seemed too worried: The chief mate for Transocean left two crew members to deal with the issue on their own. What began as a routine pressure problem, however, suddenly turned to panic. The workers called bosses to report a situation, with assistant

driller Stephen Curtis telling one senior operator that the well was â&#x20AC;&#x153;coming in.â&#x20AC;? Someone told well site leader Donald Vidrine that they were â&#x20AC;&#x153;getting mud back.â&#x20AC;? The drilling supervisor, Jason Anderson, tried to shut down the well. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. Both Curtis and Anderson died in the explosion. At a hearing in New Orleans on Wednesday, Douglas Brown, the Deepwater Horizonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief mechanic, testified about what he described as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;skirmishâ&#x20AC;? between someone he called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;company manâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a BP official â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and three other employees during a meeting the day of the explosion. Brown said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay particular attention to what they were discussing because it did not involve his engine room duties. He later said he did not know the BP officialâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The driller outlined what would be taking place, but the company man stood up and said â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be having some changes to that,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Brown testified. He said the three other workers initially disagreed but â&#x20AC;&#x153;the company man said â&#x20AC;&#x2122;This is how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Frustration with BP and the federal government has only grown since then as efforts to stop the leak have failed. Obama prepared to head to the Gulf on Friday to review efforts to halt the oil that scientists said seems to be growing significantly darker, from what they can see in an underwater video. It suggests that heavier, morepolluting oil is spewing out.

Facebook to simplify privacy controls amid user unrest NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Facebook is simplifying its privacy controls amid growing unrest from many of its users. Protesters have been organizing campaigns to quit Facebook and privacy groups have complained to regulators after Facebook announced new features last month, including â&#x20AC;&#x153;instant personalizationâ&#x20AC;? that tailors other websites to usersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Facebook profiles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people are upset with us,â&#x20AC;? Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged at a news conference Wednesday at the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Palo Alto, Calif., headquarters. One complaint has been over the fact that while Facebook allows users to hide their list of interests on their personal profile pages, the user would still show up elsewhere as â&#x20AC;&#x153;likingâ&#x20AC;? that band, company or hobby. Zuckerberg said that under the simplified controls, privacy preferences will be extending to those other places as well. Zuckerberg said the company is also making it easier for users to decline the instant personalization feature. He said that as Facebook offered more granularity in its privacy choices, the settings have become too complex for many users. He said Facebook is trying to simplify the controls â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and making them apply retroactively and to new services that have yet to launch.

Obama puts forth border plan similar to Bushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s PHOENIX (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to send as many as 1,200 National Guard troops back to the U.S.-Mexico border quelled demands that he must do more to battle illegal immigration and drug smuggling, but advocates for tougher enforcement say the troops need authority to make detentions. The new plan looks similar to the National Guard initiative under former President George W. Bush: Troops will work on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance support, and will eventually be replaced by more border patrol and customs agents. The plan at this point doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

call for the ability to round up suspected illegal immigrants and smugglers. The Mexican government issued a statement Tuesday saying it hoped the troops would be used to fight drug cartels and not enforce immigration laws. Mexico has traditionally objected to the use of the military to control illegal immigration. Under Bush, the National Guard troops were designed to back the Border Patrol for two years as 6,000 more agents were trained and hired, and they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed to detain immigrants or smugglers. They were pulled out in July 2008, as planned, but many argue that drug violence and immigrant smuggling continue unchecked. Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sweeping new immigration law, which requires police to question anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally, has made the topic a national campaign issue.

Treasury: AIG in better shape to repay bailout

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Insurance giant American International Group Inc. is better positioned to pay back all of its $182 billion federal bailout, a key Treasury official testified Wednesday. But AIGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to repay taxpayers depends on its future profitability and the insurance industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strength, Treasury chief restructuring officer Jim Millstein said. He said AIG must complete the planned sales of two large insurance subsidiaries and regain the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of things that have to occur before weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll knowâ&#x20AC;? how much taxpayers will be repaid, Millstein told the Congressional Oversight Panel, which is monitoring the $700 billion financial bailout. The panel has criticized officials who managed the bailout for failing to consider alternatives, such as filing for bankruptcy or demanding concessions from AIGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creditors. AIG received the largest bailout of any company during the financial crisis that crested in September 2008. The company could not meet its financial obligations after selling guarantees on mortgagerelated investments that later lost value.

PREPARING THE HOME FOR AN ADOPTED CAT Many families decide to open their homes to an adopted pet. The Humane Society of the United States estimates that animal shelters care for 6 to 8 million dogs and cats in area shelters. Of these animals, 3 to 4 million are euthanized each year. Adoption of animals is the primary solution to prevent animals from being put to sleep.

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Pussycat Doll is now the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dancing With the Starsâ&#x20AC;? champ. Nicole Scherzinger and partner Derek Hough dominated throughout the 10th season of the hit ABC show and bested Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek to win the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dancingâ&#x20AC;? crown Tuesday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like I just won a Grammy,â&#x20AC;? she said after the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A dancing Grammy!â&#x20AC;? Scherzinger performed a high-energy jive as her final dance that earned a perfect score of 30 and inspired head judge Len Goodman to say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;There can only be one winner of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Dancing With the Stars.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It should be you.â&#x20AC;? Lysacekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quickstep also earned the judgesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; praise, but just 28 points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been such a blast,â&#x20AC;? the champion figure skater said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are totally satisfied with everything we gave. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so proud of Nicole and Derek. They deserve it. ... They inspired all the other couples in the competition.â&#x20AC;? Scherzinger and Hough kissed the mirrorball trophy as they were hoisted on the shoulders of other dancers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Win or lose tonight, I was just very, very happy with the entire season,â&#x20AC;? said Hough, a two-time â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dancingâ&#x20AC;? champ. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To get

Even more valuable than the trophy, Scherzinger said, were the personal lessons she learned during the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been probably the greatest reward personally, this whole personal journey,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned so much about myself. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned so much about Derek Hough. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made me a better person through this.â&#x20AC;? She added that she plans to work on winning a real Grammy now that her â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dancingâ&#x20AC;? stint is done. Lysacek said he hopes to bring some of his new performance skills onto the ice. And though he thought the winning couple â&#x20AC;&#x153;were the best dancers by a mile

from the very first night,â&#x20AC;? he said his competitive spirit pushed him to do better each week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I came into this competition and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to be competitive, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just going to have fun,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said after the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the further we got from the Olympics, the more my competitive fire started burning. ... It progressed, and slowly but surely I became more confident as a performer and a dancer.â&#x20AC;? ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews, the third finalist, and her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were eliminated from the dance-off halfway through the two-hour season closer. Earlier in the evening,

all three pairs each danced an Argentine tango and earned glowing remarks from the judges. Carrie Ann Inaba called Lysacekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance â&#x20AC;&#x153;perfectâ&#x20AC;? and Scherzingerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;like a beautiful masterpiece come to life.â&#x20AC;? Though being on the show â&#x20AC;&#x153;has meant everythingâ&#x20AC;? to Andrews, she said she knew the fight for the title would be between Lysacek and Scherzinger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I came here under really crummy circumstances,â&#x20AC;? Andrews said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wanted to be myself again.â&#x20AC;? Andrews was the victim of a stalker, who was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for following the reporter to at least three cities and shooting videos of her through hotel peepholes. Gesturing toward Chmerkovskiy, she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This one has just put my life back together, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so thankful.â&#x20AC;? Chmerkovskiy called the season â&#x20AC;&#x153;a rollercoasterâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;an amazing journey.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I certainly have my own prize.â&#x20AC;? After the show, Andrews joked that the pro dancer wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t return to the show, but would instead accompany her on the college football sidelines. Rumors have swirled all season that the dance partners are dating.

TV show host Art Linkletter dies LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Art Linkletter, who as the gently mischievous host of TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;People Are Funnyâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;House Partyâ&#x20AC;? in the 1950s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s delighted viewers with his ability to get kids â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and grownups â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to say the darndest things on national television, died Wednesday. He was 97. Linkletter died at his home in the Bel-Air section of Los Angeles, said his son-in-law, Art Hershey, the husband of Sharon Linkletter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He lived a long, full, pure life, and the Lord had need for him,â&#x20AC;? Hershey said. Linkletter had been ill â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the last few weeks time, but bear in mind he was 97 years old. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eating well, and the aging process took him,â&#x20AC;? Hershey said. Linkletter hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been

diagnosed with any lifethreatening disease, he said. Linkletter was known on TV for his funny interviews with children and ordinary folks. He also collected their comments in a number of best-selling books. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Art Linkletterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s House Party,â&#x20AC;? one of televisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest-running variety shows, debuted on radio in 1944 and was seen on CBS-TV from 1952 to 1969. Though it had many features, the best known was the daily interviews with schoolchildren. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;House Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; I would talk to you and bring out the fact that you had been letting your boss beat you at golf over a period of months as part of your campaign to get a raise,â&#x20AC;? Linkletter wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the while, without your knowledge, your boss would be sitting a few feet away listening, and at the appropriate moment, I would bring you together,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny, because the laugh arises out of a real situation.â&#x20AC;? Linkletter collected quotes from children into â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids Say The Darndest Things,â&#x20AC;? and it sold in the millions. The book â&#x20AC;&#x153;70 Years of Best Sellers 1895-1965â&#x20AC;? ranked â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids Say the Darndest Thingsâ&#x20AC;? as the 15th top seller among nonfiction books in that period. The prime time â&#x20AC;&#x153;People Are Funny,â&#x20AC;? which began on radio in 1942 and ran on TV from 1954 to 1961, emphasized slapstick humor and audience participation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; things like throwing a pie in the face of a contestant who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell his Social Security number in five seconds, or asking him to go out and cash a check written on the side of a watermelon.

Atlantis completes final flight By MARCIA DUNN AP Aerospace Writer

Š 2010., Inc.


CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; How would you look after 120 million miles? Atlantis might appear a little scuffed up to outsiders as it heads into retirement after a quartercentury of spaceflight. But to the trained eyes of NASA engineers, the ship is still in its prime â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a fact that adds to wistful emotions at the space agency as the shuttle program winds down. Atlantis returned home from its 32nd and final voyage Wednesday, the first of three shuttles that are closing out their flying careers and eventually heading to museums. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The legacy of Atlantis, now in the history books,â&#x20AC;? Mission Control announced at touchdown. About 1,200 guests lined the Kennedy Space Center runway to watch the shuttle glide through a clear morning sky to a flawless landing at the end of a 12-day journey. NASA employees wore white ribbons with the name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Atlantisâ&#x20AC;? and the shuttleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picture embossed in gold. Even the lead flight directors came in from Houston for the occasion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was pretty sweet,â&#x20AC;? Mission Control radioed after Atlantis came to a stop on the runway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a suiting end to an incredible mission.â&#x20AC;? Only two shuttle flights remain â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by Discovery and Endeavour â&#x20AC;&#x201D; before the entire fleet is retired. Barring a reprieve from the White House, Atlantis will stand by as a rescue ship for the very last shuttle

The space shuttle Atlantis lands on Kennedy Space Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s runway 33 Wednesday in Cape Canaveral, Fla. flight, then take off for a museum somewhere. The shuttle came back â&#x20AC;&#x153;really, really clean,â&#x20AC;? with just a couple of dings in its thermal shielding, said NASA officials who were out on the runway with Atlantisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; beaming crew and shuttle workers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a beautiful machine to see out on the runway, and we got to see it up close and personal again today,â&#x20AC;? observed launch director Mike Leinbach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to hate to see that go away.â&#x20AC;? Before the 2003 Columbia disaster, shuttles regularly landed with hundreds of nicks and even gouges. Redesigned fuel tanks took care of that problem. Launch manager Mike Moses noted how often NASA officials now describe a just-returned shuttle as â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the cleanest weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually the truth. Each one is just getting better and better,â&#x20AC;? he said.

The hodgepodge of old and new thermal tiles, combined with the rigors of launch and the heat of re-entry, might make the shuttles appear shabbier than they really are. Pilot Dominic â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonyâ&#x20AC;? Antonelli said Atlantis looked â&#x20AC;&#x153;just absolutely fabulousâ&#x20AC;? after logging so many miles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame,â&#x20AC;? he said, that the shuttle may not fly again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is so ready to get stacked and back out to the launch pad,â&#x20AC;? Antonelli said. Atlantis â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the fourth to fly in NASAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shuttle series â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is ending its run after spending a total of 294 days in orbit and circling Earth 4,648 times. It has carried 189 astronauts and visited the International Space Station 11 times. It also flew seven times to Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old Mir station and once to the Hubble Space Telescope. The shuttle added another 4.8 million miles during its just-completed

trip to the space station, for a grand total of 120,650,907 miles over its lifetime. The 120 millionth mile was logged shortly after midnight. Atlantisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; six-man crew installed a Russian compartment, six fresh batteries and an extra antenna at the space station. As a tribute to their ship, the astronauts flew a small U.S. flag that accompanied Atlantis into orbit on its maiden voyage in 1985, as well as a couple of tool bins full of shuttle mementos. Sir Isaac Newton even got in on the act. British-born astronaut Piers Sellers flew with a wood chip said to be from the tree that dropped an apple nearly 350 years ago and inspired Newtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s writings on gravity. At the space station, the residents managed to catch a glimpse of Atlantisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; final re-entry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most impressive,â&#x20AC;? astronaut Timothy Creamer said.

ELMENDORF AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; China may soon abandon its cautious neutrality and join the international condemnation of North Koreaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in sinking a South Korean warship, senior American officials said Wednesday. Speaking after strategic talks this week in Beijing, the U.S. officials predicted that China will gradually endorse the view that North Korea should be held accountable for the March 26 torpedo attack. On a visit to South Korea this weekend, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao is likely to express regret for the deaths of 46 South Korean sailors in the incident and signal that China will accept the results of an international investigation blaming North Korea, the U.S. officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the discussions with China. Wen is also expected to leave open the possibility of backing action against Pyongyang at the U.N. Security Council, although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not clear how far Beijing is prepared to go in rebuking its historic ally. In Seoul earlier Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the world must respond to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;unacceptable provocationâ&#x20AC;? represented by the sinking of a South Korean warship, as Pyongyang engaged in blistering rhetoric against Seoul and Washington. Clinton told reporters after talks with South Korean leaders that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the international community has a responsibility and a duty to respondâ&#x20AC;? to the sinking, which â&#x20AC;&#x153;requires a strong

Aborted sting at official residence dogs Ohio guv

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland is facing political fallout over how aides handled a planned sting at his official residence in January. Strickland moved swiftly Wednesday to get ahead of the criticism by replacing a state public safety official whose confirmation was rejected by the state Senate the night before. Ohio voters had already been introduced to the issue through months of media reports and an antiStrickland ad produced by the Republican Governors Association. The controversy centers on a winter evening when Strickland had invited former astronaut John Glenn to dinner. A plot had been discovered to sneak tobacco to a prison inmate working at the mansion. The safety official had a hand in scratching a raid that evening. A state watchdog found she did it to protect the governor politically.

Factory orders and new-home sales rise in April

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The economic recovery got a lift in April as orders for large manufactured goods surged while sales of new homes benefited from homebuyer tax credits. Manufacturing is helping drive the rebound. But some economists worry about the threat posed to U.S. exports from the widening debt crisis in Europe. And some fear that home sales will falter in coming months because the tax breaks for buyers have expired. Still, economists found the two Commerce Department reports released Wednesday generally encouraging. Demand for commercial aircraft lifted orders for durable goods 2.9 percent last month. That was the best showing in three months. Excluding transportation, orders fell 1 percent in April. But that came after the March figures were revised to show a 4.8 percent jump. A separate report showed sales of new single-family homes jumped 14.8 percent in April. That gain followed a 29.8 percent surge in March, the biggest monthly increase in 47 years.

WOODS COMING BACK TO DEFEND MEMORIAL DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Tiger Woods will defend his title next week at the Memorial Tournament, marking his return to the PGA Tour after three weeks spent rehabbing a neck injury. Woods withdrew from The Players Championship on May 9 with an inflamed facet joint in his neck. He confirmed on his website Wednesday that he’ll play next week at Muirfield Village, where he has won four times and is the defending champion. “The doctors advised me to take a week off and rest, which I did,” Woods said. “They prescribed physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication and soft-tissue massages, which I’m continuing with. Although I’m not 100 percent, I feel much better and look forward to competing next week.” The tournament hosted by Jack Nicklaus will also serve as preparation for the U.S. Open two weeks later at Pebble Beach. Woods won the Memorial from 1999-2001 and again last year. After a winter of revelations of marital infidelity, Woods returned in April to play in the Masters, where he tied for fourth. He missed the cut at Quail Hollow after rounds of 74 and 79, and was 4 under at The Players Championship before withdrawing with the injury.


BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — The phones started ringing at 2 a.m., and players were told to come down to the third floor for a meeting. As Herculez Gomez pressed the elevator button on 17, his mind raced. Were his dreams about to be fulfilled — or crushed? This is the way the U.S. World Cup team was finalized, in the dead of night in a Hartford hotel. “It’s been such a crazy and unbelievable journey,” Gomez said. And the big trip hasn’t even begun. For Gomez, it was good news. He and Edson Buddle went from long shots to the American roster Wednesday, joining veterans Landon Donovan, DaMarcus Beasley and Tim Howard on the 23-man U.S. team headed to South Africa.

CYCLING UCI ORDERS 4 PROBES BASED ON LANDIS CLAIMS AIGLE, Switzerland (AP) — The International Cycling Union asked national members in four countries to investigate riders and officials based on claims of doping made by Floyd Landis. The UCI said Wednesday the investigations concern Australia’s Matthew White, Belgium’s Johan Bruyneel — the longtime team manager of Lance Armstrong — Canada’s Michael Barry and France’s John Lelangue to establish if they broke anti-doping rules. The UCI stressed that ordering the probes did not “in any way” imply it believes Landis’ accusations.

LOS ANGELES — The Lakers’ swagger is more of a stagger after consecutive losses in the Western Conference finals. After leaving town last week to chants of “We want Boston,” Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol realize they won’t even get the chance to defend their NBA title unless Los Angeles starts defending the Phoenix Suns. Although Gasol says Game 5 on Thursday night is “a mustwin for us,” the champions’ California cool shows few signs of cracking, beyond Bryant’s grumbling about missed defensive assignments. After surviving a near-identical jam in last season’s conference finals against Denver, the Lakers came away with a confidence they can rise to any occasion — even a best-two-ofthree series against a surging, shot-making opponent with

Lewis says he’s been sick the “whole series” against the Boston Celtics. “Overall it effects you,” he said after Orlando’s shootaround Wednesday. “I’ve been throwing up. I haven’t been at full strength. I’ve been feeling weak, my legs been feeling weak. I find myself getting tired very fast in the first quarter. You know, when you can’t hold food down you have no energy in your body to go out there and perform.” Lewis was planning to take intravenous fluids before Game 5 on Wednesday night for the fourth straight game. He said he’s feeling better and expects to start, but is not completely healthy.

Howard’s foul on Garnett upgraded to flagrant

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard’s foul on Kevin Garnett in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals has been upgraded to a flagrant-one foul. The NBA made the announcement Wednesday. Howard grabbed a rebound with 6:25 remaining in the third quarter and swung his elbow, knocking Garnett in the face. That is Howard’s second flagrant of the playoffs; two more and he will be suspended for one game. The Celtics led the Magic 3-1 entering Wednesday night’s game.

Redskins confident Moss won’t be suspended

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Washington Redskins receiver Santana Moss told a small group of teammates last week that he received treatments from the Canadian doctor charged with smuggling and supplying human growth hormone.

Moss portrayed the treatments as routine — and not involving banned substances — according to teammate Phillip Daniels. “I believe he’s telling us the truth,” Daniels said Wednesday. “He got, like, three treatments, and who knows what happened after that.”

Venus Williams’ dress is talk of French Open PARIS (AP) — Venus Williams is still answering questions about the self-designed lace dress she’s wearing at the French Open. After the American’s second-round victory at the French Open on Wednesday, reporters were as interested in her fashion statement as her play. An initial query about her opponent was followed by eight consecutive questions related to what she wore on court. Williams says the corset-like outfit’s overlay and skin-toned undergarments are “about the illusion of bareness.” She also says: “The illusion of just having bare skin is definitely for me a lot more beautiful.”

Brown thanks Cavs for past 5 years CLEVELAND (AP) — Fired Cleveland coach Mike Brown has called his five years with Cavaliers an “exceptional experience.” Brown, who has not publicly commented since his dismissal, issued a statement through the team Wednesday in which he thanked the Cavs for the opportunity to coach in Cleveland. Brown was fired in the aftermath of a second-round playoff collapse to Boston. Brown said he’s proud of the standard he helped set in Cleveland, and appreciated the dedication and support he received from owner Dan Gilbert. Brown led the Cavs to 127 regular-season wins the past two seasons. He was selected NBA coach of the year in 2009 and took Cleveland to its only NBA finals appearance in 2007. Brown is a likely candidate for the other five coaching vacancies in the league.

Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, left, argues with umpire Joe West after Guillen was ejected from a baseball game against the Cleveland Indians in the second inning Wednesday in Cleveland.

Buehrle, Guillen tossed in Sox’s win CLEVELAND (AP) — Mark Buehrle’s ejection in the third inning for arguing a balk didn’t rattle the Chicago White Sox, who regrouped after losing their starting pitcher and survived a scary ninth to beat the Cleveland Indians 5-4 on Wednesday. Buehrle and manager Ozzie Guillen were both tossed by first-base umpire Joe West, who called two balks on the left-hander in the first three innings. Mark Kotsay hit a two-run homer off Jake Westbrook (23) and Mark Teahen drove in two runs as Chicago won two of three over Cleveland to capture their first road series this season. Bobby Jenks nearly blew a 5-1 lead in the ninth, allowing the Indians to score three runs before striking out Austin Kearns with the bases loaded and getting Russell Branyan to fly out.

White Sox reliever Tony Pena (1-1), summoned in the fourth after Randy Williams left with an apparent foot injury, worked four scoreless innings and was credited with the win. Yankees 1, Twins 0, comp. of susp. game MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Derek Jeter homered and made a highlight-reel play at shortstop in the sixth inning to lift New York in the completion of a game halted by rain the night before. The Yankees and Twins had to push the pause button Tuesday after a thunderstorm forced an 83-minute delay and then suspension of a scoreless game after the fifth. Their regularly scheduled matchup was still on tap for Wednesday night, about a half-hour after completion of this pitching duel started by A.J. Burnett and Scott Baker on Tuesday.

Mariners 5, Tigers 4 SEATTLE (AP) — Mike Sweeney hit a two-run homer off reliever Ryan Perry and Josh Wilson capped the eighth-inning rally with a tworun single for Seattle. Down 4-1 entering the eighth, Franklin Gutierrez got it started with a leadoff single before Sweeney belted his sixth homer in the last 10 games two batters later. After a single by Jose Lopez and double by Rob Johnson, Wilson singled into left-center field to give Seattle the lead. Royals 5, Rangers 2 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Billy Butler homered and Luke Hochevar pitched eight strong innings. Hochevar (5-2) held the Rangers to two runs on six hits, striking out four and walking none, and Joakim Soria worked the ninth for his 11th save in 13 chances and the 100th of his career.

PARIS (AP) — Roger Federer sat under a courtside umbrella and looked up at the gray sky as rain fell. Tennis, anyone? With drizzle continuing after a one-hour delay, Federer rose from his chair, removed his warmup jacket and went back to work. A change in the weather Wednesday at the French Open barely slowed defending champion Federer, who eliminated Alejandro Falla 7-6 (4), 6-2, 6-4. The No. 1-ranked Federer calmly endured two weather delays to reach the third round. “This is how this game has been played for decades,” he said. “We’re used to walking on and off the court and being flexible about these kind of things.” After three days of warm sunshine, conditions were damp and cool for the start of round two. There was a third delay of 90 minutes after Federer finished, and because of a schedule backlog, two matches were postponed until Thursday. The defending women’s champion, sixth-seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova, overcame four matches points in the second set and beat Andrea Petkovic 4-6, 7-5, 6-4. Before the rain, No. 2-seeded Venus Williams used her big serve to beat Arantxa Parra Santonja 6-2, 6-4. Williams whiffed on a forehand and was often bested in long rallies, but serves at up to 128 mph kept her in control, and she was never broken.

NCHSAA 4-A state baseball tournament. Because Lee County High School has exams early Friday morning, the series is tentatively scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday. The bracket has the game listed for 7 p.m. Thursday but Lee County Athletic Director Steve Womack is hoping to get that changed. All the games will be played at Laney High School. Stay tuned to sanfordherald. com for more information on when the series will be played. Frye, who also threw a complete game on the mound, was facing a 2-1 count with two outs when he knocked the ball well over 400 feet out of the park to lift Lee County to the victory. “How deserving is this for Dillon after everything he’s done for us all season?” said Lee County head coach Charlie Spivey. “That’s a heck of a way for him to end the biggest game of the year on a home run. I couldn’t be happier for him and my guys.” On the mound, Frye had 12 strikeouts and allowed just five hits. “I couldn’t have done it if we didn’t put runs on the board,” said Frye. “I’m proud of my teammates. This is an awesome feeling.

The Lakers have been in this situation three previous times over the past two playoffs: a series tied at 2, with Game 5 at home. Los Angeles won each time, beating Houston and the Nuggets last season before trouncing Oklahoma City last month in the first round. Overall, they’ve won Game 5 seven straight times at home. Yet the Suns hold every smidgen of momentum heading back to Staples Center after winning the last two games with a gimmicky zone defense, impressive bench play and another phenomenal exhibition of offense. Los Angeles’ 58 percent shooting in its first two victories masked its full series of ineffective defense so far: Los Angeles has yielded 113 points per game, and Phoenix has shaken off a brief spell of outside shoot-

We’ve just got to take care of business against Laney now. They’re just like any other team and we’ve got to keep doing what we’ve been doing.” Lee County took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second when Garrett Verrilli hit a two-run home run, which also scored Patrick Oldham. The Yellow Jackets added to the lead with sophomore Nick Durazo’s RBI single, which scored Frye, to make the score 3-0 after three. Apex’s 3-0 deficit was its largest deficit in the postseason since trailing 4-1 at Athens Drive in the second round. The Cougars (1411) turned things around and responded in both games. Against Athens Drive, the Cougars bounced back to win. Against the Yellow Jackets, Apex rallied with a three-run outburst in the sixth inning to tie it up at 3 thanks to an RBI single from Austin Winstead. The Cougars added two more runs from Keaton Oates and Ben Sherri to even things up. “It was a huge wave of emotion,” said Spivey. “At first, we were in control of this game and then Apex rallies back like that. I think we gave into the emotion a little bit but we rebounded with a big home run. All of these kids are deserving of this. This is great for them.”

ing problems. At least the Lakers are back home, where they haven’t lost in seven playoff games this spring. “The momentum we have, the confidence we have now, is definitely going to help us going to L.A.,” said Suns forward Amare Stoudemire, who shook off two mediocre games at Staples Center with big efforts in Phoenix. “We definitely can win there. It’s just a matter of us implementing our will.” Will was a popular topic in El Segundo as well, with Bryant declaring that most of the Lakers’ problems are mental lapses on execution and assignments. After nearly posting a triple-double in Game 4, Bryant lamented Los Angeles’ inability to stick to its assignments when the Suns repeatedly ran their pick-and-roll, drive-anddish offense. “My message is offensively, we’re going to score enough points,” Bryant said.

“Defensively, we’ve got to do a much better job. That’s my message. We’ve got to grind, do a better job staying in front of them.” The Lakers uniformly downplayed the importance of Phoenix’s zone defense, a 2-3 scheme that puts defenders on both sides of Los Angeles’ post players. The Lakers’ shooting decreased sharply in Phoenix, but Jackson snorted at the idea he’s being outmaneuvered, noting his club still scored 107.5 points per game in Arizona. “They challenge you in a lot of ways that we have to adjust to,” Gasol said. “It’s mostly stuff we know about. It’s about being alert all the time.” Suns coach Alvin Gentry will have to miss his son’s elementary school graduation on Thursday night after his club avoided the sweep that seemed highly possible after its first two losses in Los Angeles.

Many outdoor events are held, including fireworks displays, picnics, Memorial Day services, and sporting events which include the Indianapolis 500. Traditionally, the U.S. flag is flown at half-staff until noon on this holiday. After the American Civil War, many cities around the United States began setting aside days of observance for their veterans who died in battle. These days were largely celebrated by decorating the graves of soldiers; as a result, it was originally called Decoration Day. Although the exact origins of Memorial Day are unknown, it is believed that the first true celebration of the holiday occurred in Waterloo, New York, in 1866. In 1868, General John A. Logan declared the holiday to be a time to give tribute to fallen comrades. The original Decoration Day was only meant to be a tribute to Civil War veterans, but after the end of WWII, the holiday was modified to commemorate the lost lives of all American soldiers in all wars. The holiday was widely celebrated after this time, and in 1971 Congress declared that the Memorial Day Holiday would be celebrated the last Monday of every May.

Where there’s smoke, man finds wife with old flame

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Don’t give in if something doesn’t suit you. Standing up for what you want and know is right will give you greater self-esteem and confidence. Don’t underestimate what you have to offer. Have your bottom line ready but shoot for the stars — you’ll be surprised how much further ahead you will get. Your numbers are 6, 11, 18, 24, 33, 38, 41 ARIES (March 21-April 19): A financial deal may look lucrative but it will have some emotional ties you will have to overcome. Follow through with your original plans. Property investments will make you feel better about your future. Love is in the stars. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Stick to what you know and take the initiative to get things done. You will not only feel great satisfaction but will impress the people you care about most. Consider making some unusual changes that will make your life simpler. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Avoid gossiping or you will be blamed for interfering and disrupting plans. The busier you are, the better. It’s important to acknowledge what others do and say but remaining neutral will be crucial. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may find yourself glorifying days gone by and reminiscing about a long lost lover. Don’t live in the past. Instead, change what’s not working in your life. You will feel better about who you are and where you are heading. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are dynamic, charismatic and capable of doing whatever you put your mind to. You will attract attention for your highly competitive nature and willingness to take on a position of leadership. However, with this will come adversity and opposition. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Avoid getting into a scuffle at home over chores or what or who has


been neglected. Take part in activities or groups that appreciate what you have to offer. Travel and learning will bring you in contact with people who share your interests and beliefs. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Get together with neighbors and friends instead of trying to sort through emotional matters. Problems with a love relationship will develop if you are too forthcoming about what you want. Pursue an idea you’ve been contemplating that will help you get ahead professionally. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Refuse to take a back seat to someone who may be trying to phase you out. You are dedicated and creative and will be ready to take on whatever comes your way. A partnership opportunity should be considered. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Put more effort into your living space before someone complains. You can resolve issues but will have to give something up. Before you go that route, question whether or not it is worth your while to make such compensations. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Start talking about what you want to do with the people who matter most to you. Having the approval of family and friends will only add to the results you get. You will receive more help and support if you are straightforward regarding both risks and solutions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Trials and tribulations with friends and family will surface if you are obstinate. Emotional issues will be more intense and difficult to reverse if you aren’t willing to meet people halfway. Correct any misunderstandings. 4 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Socialize with people who have the same mind set as you. Good things are heading your way and you will excel if you stand up and ask for what’s rightfully yours. It may be time to make adjustments to your inner circle of friends.

DEAR ABBY: A few months ago I became suspicious that my wife of 40 years was having an affair with an old high school friend. At first I thought I was misreading the signs. Then I found an unfinished e-mail on our computer making a date to meet him “at our special place,” and I was crushed. I began gathering information and found it was true and that it had been going on for some time. When I confronted her, she denied everything until I told her about the e-mail and everything else I had found. She eventually admitted it was true and said she had wanted only to see if she was still attractive to men because she felt we were “drifting apart in our lives.” We tried counseling, but when she was able to make only one appointment due to “job conflicts,” I gave up. I don’t trust anything she tells me now, and I don’t know which way to turn. I stupidly agreed not to discuss this with any of her family or friends. I hate thinking that everything I thought we were working for will end up being split down the middle (if I’m lucky), and I will probably be painted as the one at fault. — DUPED AND TRUSTLESS IN WASHINGTON STATE DEAR DUPED AND TRUSTLESS: Because your wife refused counseling does not mean that you shouldn’t go, and that’s what I’m urging you to do. You need

someone who is not emotionally involved to help you get your head straight. Once you do, you will have a better idea of what you want to do and how to accomplish it. You should also save the evidence, in case your wife tries in the coming months to lay the blame for her infidelity on you. You have my sympathy. o DEAR ABBY: My son was married a short time ago. The reception was held at my condo member hall. After the reception, the bride and groom asked me to refrigerate the leftover bottom layer of the wedding cake. They said they’d pick it up the next day. Six days later, the cake was still in my fridge. They made excuses every day for not picking it up. Finally, I threw it away. Now I’m the bad guy, and the bride is demanding an apology. Abby, the cake was hard and

DEAR FATHER: Let me put it this way -- rather than storing the cake in the fridge, it should have immediately gone into the freezer so it could be eaten at a later date. But because that didn’t happen, and the cake was fit only to be used as a paving stone or a doorstop, the logical thing to do was throw it away. o DEAR ABBY: I am in my 50s and part of a management team at work. My first name is Mary. Every time the boss sees me he starts reciting that nursery rhyme, “Mary, Mary, quite contrary!” I find it belittling and insulting. I have expressed my dislike of what he’s doing, but he can’t seem to stop. Is this a form of workplace harassment? — “QUITE” ANNOYED IN ALABAMA DEAR ANNOYED: If you have told your boss you find what he’s doing to be unwelcome and he continues anyway, it might qualify as creating a hostile work environment. It appears you work for an insensitive clod whose attempts to be clever are annoying and pathetic rather than witty. You have my sympathy.


ODDS AND ENDS Flood of frogs shuts down major Greek highway

Sleeping woman left on plane in Philly for 4 hours

THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) — Greek officials say a horde of frogs has forced the closure of a key northern highway for two hours. Thessaloniki traffic police chief Giorgos Thanoglou says “millions” of the amphibians covered the tarmac Wednesday near the town of Langadas, some 12 miles east of Thessaloniki. “There was a carpet of frogs,” he said. Authorities closed the highway after three car drivers skidded off the road trying to dodge the frogs. No human injuries were reported. Thanoglou said the amphibians probably left a nearby lake to look for food.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Airline officials are trying to figure out how a sleeping passenger was left aboard a flight for four hours after it landed in Philadelphia. According to police and the Transportation Security Administration, the passenger didn’t wake up when her United Express flight from Dulles airport outside Washington landed shortly after midnight Tuesday. At about 4 a.m., a cleaning crew found her. United Airlines says they’re working with a regional partner carrier to determine why the plane wasn’t cleared upon landing.

Police in Alaska puzzled by 26 headless chickens FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers are puzzled by a gruesome discovery in the city of North Pole: 26 headless chickens carefully arranged at a coop. Police say the fly-infested carcasses found Monday were arranged in a 12- to 15foot-long line pattern that ended in a circle. There was no sign of the missing heads. Three chickens were left unharmed, and there was no damage to the coop. Trooper spokeswoman Megan Peters says officers “have no idea what the thought process was.” They say there’s a possibility that the killings were intended as a threat. Those responsible could be charged with felony criminal mischief.


Japan leader’s flamboyant shirt inspires copies TOKYO (AP) — Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama likes to wear flamboyant clothes. But his latest quirky shirt has gone further than any before - inspiring a copy that went on sale Wednesday for $500 apiece. The replica is yellow on one arm, blue on the other, red in front and checkered all over. Hatoyama’s original, worn at a recent barbecue, drew mention in the media as an example of odd taste. Yet a shirt-by-order startup hopes the multicolored item will catch on, selling it online under the heading “Prime Minister of Japan & Fashion Hero.” “The Hatoyama Shirt” is not the prime minister’s first eye-opening attire. Hatoyama’s past fashion picks include a shirt speckled with hearts, Hawaiian-style shirts and colorfully striped ones.

Seek God’s will when giving Q: We get mail all the time from organizations asking for money, and we just get confused. We want to help, but how do we decide where we ought to give? We can’t support everything and we know our little bit doesn’t make much difference anyway. — S.H.M. A: Do you remember the widow in the Bible who only had two very small coins to give to God’s work? In the eyes of most people her gift was useless — but Jesus commended her to His disciples: “This poor widow has put in more than all the others” (Luke 21:3). Why did Jesus say this? One reason was because in God’s eyes it wasn’t the size of her gift that mattered, but her attitude of sacrifice and love for God. In addition, Jesus knew that God could take even the smallest gift and use it for His glory. And the same is true for us. If Christ is first in our lives, our desire will be to support His work in every way we possibly can. Is this your goal? Ask God to guide you in your giving. No, you can’t support every cause that comes your way — nor should you try. But you can seek God’s will for your giving, asking Him to direct you to give to those that need it most. Pray too for those organizations, that God will help them use their resources wisely and carefully. Above all, seek to follow the Bible’s teaching in your giving: “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7).
