Lee graduates insist they won’t be defined by renovations project By ALEXA MILAN
SANFORD — As the Lee County High School senior class left the football stadium Friday night after graduation, they left behind a school that will have a very different face if they choose to visit their old stomping ground in the years to come. The class of 2010 is the last class to graduate before the new renovations start to take shape. Though future classes will be the ones to enjoy the new Lee County High School on a daily basis, school counselor and graduation committee member Rachel Wolf said this

From staff reports PITTSBORO— The Chatham County Board of Commissioners voted not to proceed with the increase in the lodging occupancy tax from 3 to 6 percent at its Monday meeting. The increase had been proposed as part of the County Manager’s budget recommendation for fiscal year 2010-11. “The commissioners received valuable feedback from lodging owners and other concerned residents,” said Commissioner Chairman Sally Kost. “Given the

economic situation, the Board unanimously voted not to pursue an increase in the tax at this time.” The room occupancy tax is paid on overnight lodging at hotels and inns, with all revenues required to be spent on activities to attract more visitors. The funds are managed by the PittsboroSiler City Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), which promotes tourism countywide. “We know that Chatham County needs to enhance its efforts to attract more

overnight visitors,â€? said Commissioner Tom Vanderbeck, who is the boardâ€™s liaison to the CVB. â€œThe county will work with the CVB to try to find other sources of funding to help make this happen, because it benefits the lodging establishments, retailers and other aspects of our economy when more people come here and stay longer.â€? Occupancy tax revenues currently support various tourism promotion activities, such as promoting coverage in travel magazines and news media, developing and distributing materials and e-newsletters that promote the county as a desirable destination, hosting an updated website, assisting local tourismrelated businesses in their marketing efforts and participating in local and regional partnerships. Board Vice Chairman George Lucier added that â€œthe county encourages owners of lodging facilities to forward their ideas on

The Board of Commissioners recently designated various types of tourism, including tourism related to nature, agriculture and cultural arts, as an important element of its economic development strategic plan. An annual study commissioned by the North Carolina Division of Tourism, Film and Sports Development and conducted by the Travel Industry Association has found that tourismâ€™s economic impact in the county increased 32.7 percent from 2004 to 2008. The 2009 results are slated for release in late August. The 2008 report showed that the overall economic impact of tourism in the county was $25.35 million. It also showed that tourism generated 170 jobs in the county, $3.27 million in payroll and $1.45 million in tax revenues, a tax savings of $31.86 per resident.

: The â€œFunction at the Junctionâ€? Summer Concert Series has just started. What should we expect? Why does DSI promote events such as the summer concert series and the â€œScreen on the Greenâ€? movies that occur in the spring and fall? The first concert of the summer indeed started this past Thursday and they will continue to be held at 7 p.m. every Thursday through Sep. 9 in Depot Park. DSI tries to provide an eclectic mix of music, including jazz, bluegrass, country and rock that appeals across generations. DSI believes that providing free quality family entertainment improves peopleâ€™s lives in Lee County and surrounding areas. Furthermore, DSI is trying to create an awareness about downtown to potential customers. Competing against strip malls and shopping centers, downtown must find unique ways to create events that attract people so that they are exposed to all that downtown has to offer: unique restaurants offering fresh food alternatives, local retail stores that have oneof-a-kind gifts, arts that enhance our lives, and the history of the community.
train and Railroad House Museum. The splash fountain runs every day from May 1 to Oct. 31; operating hours are 10 a.m.-1 p.m., 3 p.m.-5 p.m., and 7 p.m.-9 p.m. The reason that the fountain runs intermittently is simply that it has been used more frequently than anticipated and maintenance has become an issue. We are looking at plans to make improvements to the fountain in the future so that the fountain can be running on a more continual basis.
: With the latest talk of tourism, what has been DSIâ€™s role in marketing downtown? Although the primary focus of DSIâ€™s energy is on infrastructure and construction/renovation of buildings in both the public and private sector, DSI recognizes that marketing downtown as a whole plays an important role in its continued resurgence. It is difficult to individually promote the 315 businesses located in downtown, so we focus our energy on promoting an image of downtown. Piggybacking on the work Second Century Group did has given us a direction; now we are in the throes of telling downtownâ€™s story through promotion that we are well centered. We recently installed our first wayfinding sign
at the Horner Square parking lot between Carthage and Wicker Street and started a Facebook site (just type in Downtown Sanford Inc. in the search engine and click â€œlikeâ€?) to let folks know whatâ€™s going on downtown. Partnerships with the Sanford Area Chamber of Commerce, the Temple Theatre and others have also been a key to promoting downtown as one voice.
: What are some of the â€œhidden gemsâ€? â€” restaurants, etc., downtown that folks may not know about? Actually two of the hidden gems I would recommend are some that we pass by everyday by automobile. Located at 411 S Horner Boulevard, Elaineâ€™s (499-8477) serves the best in country cooking and uses the moniker â€œFood Cooked with Love-n-Attitude.â€? Offering daily specials, they primarily rely on pick up (thereâ€™s only one table in the establishment) but have recently begun deliveries by bicycle. And Pat McCracken has taken over his late fatherâ€™s business, Bertâ€™s, at 215 S. Horner Blvd. (4997904), selling refurbished furniture, antiques and salvaged historic materials. It is amazing to see how much furniture can be stored in one place. Bertâ€™s is open from 9
a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays and by appointment.
: What are some interesting statistics about downtown and Downtown Sanford Inc. people may not know?
Downtown has approximately 315 operating businesses at any one time, employing 1,200 people Those businesses generate more than $35 million in annual wages Since DSIâ€™s inception in 1984, downtown has had an estimated net gain of 135 businesses and net gain of 319 jobs Since DSIâ€™s inception in 1984, downtown has had 93 buildings renovated Since DSIâ€™s inception in 1984, downtown has had more than $15 million in total investment, nearly $2 million in public investment and more than $13 million in private Investment Since 1990 the tax value of the property in the downtown district has gone from over $27 million to over $40 million (June 2009). It has increased nearly $4 million over the past four years. DSI produces over 30 special events during the year, such as Fourth of July Family Celebration, Seasonal Business Open Houses, Fall Festival and Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration.

: Now that summer has arrived and school is out, the splash fountain at Depot Park is on again. Is that one of those quality of life elements that DSI helped implement? Yes, the splash fountain was designed as a play space for children; the committee wanted it to be functional and entertaining but also blend in with the surrounding historic environment in which it was placed, such as the

CALL KIM - 919 454 4766 or 919 774-9585 Final Notification of a Finding of No Practicable Alternative to Historic Property Impact The USDA, Rural Development is considering an application for financial assistance sponsored by Chatham County. The specific elements of this proposed action are construction of a new Judicial Center Building. A specific element of this proposed action is to move three houses which are in excess of 50 years old and are located within the boundaries of the Pittsboro Historic district and are potentially eligible for inclusion or are included on the National Register of Historic Places. These houses are on the proposed site along East Chatham Street south of the existing Chatham County Government Services Building. The County is seeking a suitable site for the houses and is working with the Chatham County Historical Association and the State Historical Preservation Office to identify potential sites. Potential impacts will be minimized by requiring Chatham County to enter into a Memorandum of Agreement with the North Carolina State Historic Preservation Officer and Rural Development to ensure that the houses are relocated in a method to satisfy the Secretary of Interiorâ€™s standards and SHPO requirements. Adherence to the agreement will be a part of the letter of conditions for Rural Development financing. The basis of this determination is summarized as follows: There was no practicable alternative to moving the house as there was no alternative site available that would meet the needs of the Countyâ€™s proposed construction of the Judicial Center Building without moving the proposes project to a site out of the downtown area. Any written comments regarding this determination should be provided within fifteen (15) days of this publication to Garland Burnette, Area Manager, USDA Rural Development, 2736 NC Highway 210, Smithfield, North Carolina 27577. USDA-Rural Development will make no further decisions regarding this proposed action during this fifteen-day period. Request to receive a copy of, or to review the USDA-Rural Development environmental assessment upon which this determination is based, should be directed to Garland Burnette, Area Manager, at the address above or by phone at 919-934-7156 Ext. 4.

North Carolina offshore oil drilling The View Issue:
N.C. offshore oil
We can’t trust the oil companies or the feds to protect our coastline; it’s up to us.
June 6 Star-News of Wilmington
s the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico continues to spread, killing wildlife, fouling marshes, decimating fishing and tourism, and threatening Gulf Coast residents, North Carolina officials realize that we’d better have an emergency plan to address oil spills off our coast, too. That is especially important as our state ponders the potential benefits and drawbacks of drilling for oil and gas off our spectacular coastline. First lesson: Don’t expect either the federal government or the responsible party to mount
‘In the unlikely event of a major environmental disaster off North Carolina’s shores, we should at least be confident that our emergency responders know what they have to do.’ an adequate response. Be ready to respond, and quickly, to minimize damage if that’s even possible. Just a few short months ago, much of the state’s focus was on whether the state could make money off drilling and what it would mean for the state and national economies as well as national security. A pro-drilling coali-
tion told a state panel that North Carolina could reap hundreds of millions of dollars if the federal government agreed to revenue sharing. Although many environmentalists questioned both that figure and the wisdom of opening our coastline to the risks that come with drilling, the majority of state residents polled have continued to favor expanding oil and gas exploration along the East Coast. ... But the dangers are real, as the people of the Gulf coast and especially Louisiana have found. As University of North Carolina-Wilmington oceanographer Larry Cahoon noted, no one saw the Deepwater Horizon accident
coming. Accidents on the scale of the Deepwater Horizon explosion are rare. Then again, that’s the way it is with most catastrophes. Few disaster plans can cover every possibility, but it’s important to have a system in place so that emergency management officials, cleanup crews and the appropriate state, local and federal agencies are talking to each other and know what each one’s role is. We can’t trust the oil companies or the feds to protect our coastline; it’s up to us. In the unlikely event of a major environmental disaster off North Carolina’s shores, we should at least be confident that our emergency responders know what they have to do.

t’s hard to call the outcomes of recent primaries a “voter uprising.” It looks more like democracy in action than a series of coup d’etats. Replacing party establishment favorites with others is only a revolution if one believes in the divine right of incumbents. From a purely partisan perspective, the latest contests have improved Democrats’ prospects for November. Democrats have chosen stronger contenders, and Republicans weaker ones. Republicans now have an antichoice, anti-gay rights candidate running for the Senate in, of all places, California. Sarah Palin-endorsed Carly Fiorina defeated former Rep. Bill Campbell, a socially moderate fiscal conservative. An exemplary mainstream Republican, Campbell would have posed a far more formidable challenge to Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer. Conservative activists have given Nevada Democrat Harry Reid a new lease on political life. Facing a tough reelection campaign, the Senate majority leader must feel some relief in facing the radical tea party candidate Sharron Angle, rather than centrist Sue Lowden. In Florida, meanwhile, the tea party may have cost Republicans an easy Senate win. Its followers demonized Republican Gov. Charlie Crist to the point where he decided to run as an independent. The latest polls now show him edging out Marco Rubio, a tea party hero, with Democrat Kendrick Meek running a distant third. By contrast, Democratic primary voters have rejected several problematic figures. In West Virginia, they took the nomination away from longtime Rep. Alan Mollohan, who’s mired in ethical troubles. And in Pennsylvania, they wisely chose Rep. Joe Sestak over the broadly disliked Sen. Arlen Specter. A former admiral and polished talker, Sestak is a dream candidate. Which makes you wonder why Democratic leaders would try to drag Sestak out of any primary race. If they owed Specter a favor for switching parties, that’s one thing. Campaign for him. But trying to lure away solid challengers like Sestak with a job bribe is both oafish and nuts. The same thing was evidently tried in a Colorado primary race, where former Colorado House Speaker Andrew Romanoff was offered a similar deal if he would stop running against Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet. The November contest is shaping up to be a close race ... These party machinations don’t rise to the level of illegality, but they surpass that of stupidity. Such unseemly dealing tends to be found out, bruising the party’s image, angering the challenger’s supporters and demeaning the preferred candidate. Needless to say, they are bad for democracy. Incumbent protection plans discourage talented people from running for office, especially if they’re not rich. And they curtail intra-party debates on important issues. It’s true that activists bearing ideological arms often dominate primary contests, causing candidates with broad appeal to lose the nomination. But electability should be a strong consideration in a well run primary race. And that’s where Republicans are messing up.

Even though there has been remarkable economic progress in recent times, poverty remains an unmet challenge in North Carolina, according to MDC, a Chapel Hill based non-profit that studies Southern trends.

This is in regard to the continuing debate by local officials about the funding of non-profit organizations. Once again, the forgotten one here is the taxpayer. The only county commissioner that has done the homework and asks the right questions is vilified by the likes of certain unenlightened individuals. You know who you are, but to me you are an embarrassment. Commissioner Linda Shook has repeatedly said — and has shown by her personal donations — that she supports the effort of Haven in Lee County. Many other nonprofits are also important and deserve support. I have been blessed and privileged to make hundreds of donations to many worthy organizations as well as individuals in need. However, it should be an individual’s decision to donate or otherwise support one of these organizations, instead of a government body taking the money from taxpayers. That is not the form of government that the founding fathers of this country envisioned or created. Our elected officials should be held to our entire Constitution and nothing less. Example, Article I, Section 8 of the U. S. Constitution does not include using such money to fund entities such as non-profit organizations. In addition to those that have sought funding from the local governments, how many more could also come to the taxpayer’s trough? What about the churchsupported groups or the individual churches that routinely assist countless individuals and families with their needs? They provide vital services to the community, especially during these times. Our local government has been discriminatory with taxpayers’ money in many ways. Today some will choose who and how much for non profits while leaving others unassisted. Then there’s the business tax incentives, reserved for a few business while burdening those who consistently employee our county year after year. What about spreading out tax payers monies equally or not at all? We should contact and support Commissioner Shook for her good stewardship of taxpayers’ money. Unfortunately she is the one commissioner. Couldn’t we use a group like Linda? YES, Nov.2 is coming. TAMMY RAUSCH Sanford

something they can still come back and enjoy. But theyâ€™ll always have that notoriety of being the last class to graduate before the renovations.â€? The renovations were also a topic of discussion during the graduation ceremony. Student body president Denise Abell said she has heard people say they are impressed that Lee County High School students succeed despite the schoolâ€™s condition. But Abell said she sees the schoolâ€™s condition as a subject of pride. â€œI can tell you that we did not succeed in spite of,â€? Abell said. â€œWe succeed because of.â€? Salutatorian John Grossfuss also addressed the renovations in his speech, saying that people should be proud of the students for what they have achieved and not focus solely on the schoolâ€™s renovations. He noted that the class of 2010 has received more than $1 million in grants and scholarships. â€œWhile the town was talking about the temperatures in the classrooms, we were in those classrooms overachieving like always,â€? Grossfuss said.

Valedictorian Taylor Batten also discussed the accomplishments of her classmates and encouraged her peers to stay true to themselves no matter what the future brings. â€œWho we are on the inside will overpower who we are on the outside,â€? Batten said. The graduation speaker, history teacher Steve Underwood expressed his confidence that the class of 2010 will succeed. His words were met with applause from the students, some tossing beach balls into the air to show their approval. â€œThis is your night, and you will do great things,â€? Underwood said. As the class of 2010 leaves Lee County High School and ventures out into the world, Wolf said the school wishes them nothing but the best. â€œWe hope they all go into the world and make a difference,â€? Wolf said. â€œAnd we hope that we were a stepping stone for that.â€?

Kissellâ€™s ex-aide admits errors
Trial for terror suspects pushed to Sept. 2011
Battleship will stay docked at home for repairs
RALEIGH (AP) â€” A federal judge has pushed the trial of seven North Carolina men accused of plotting terrorist attacks back to September 2011, saying the case is too complex. The trial of the seven men, who were arrested in July 2009, was originally set for this September, but Chief U.S. District Judge Louise Flanagan ruled Friday that the lawyers for the men will need extra time to prepare their cases. In her order, Flanagan noted the huge amount of material defense lawyers need to examine, ranging from computer hard drives to more than 30,000 pages of documents.
WILMINGTON (AP) â€” The battleship North Carolina is staying home for repairs instead of hitting the high seas again. Multiple media organizations reported Friday that North Carolinaâ€™s floating World War II memorial will stay in Wilmington for work on its hull. The warshipâ€™s caretakers had considered sending it to Charleston, S.C., or Norfolk, Va., for the work. Crews will use new technology to do the repairs while the ship remains open to the public. Staying home allows the battleship to continue collecting tourist admissions and will save about $16 million.
Alcoholic beverage administrator retires
Hearing delayed for man with gun at Obama stop
WILMINGTON (AP) â€” The operating manager of a local alcoholic beverage control office in North Carolina is retiring after questions were raised about his salary and bonuses. The StarNews of Wilmington reported 36-year-old Bradley Williams of the New Hanover Alcoholic Beverage Control Board retired earlier this month. Chief Executive Dan Sykes says Williams stepped down June 1 after taking a long sick leave. Williams worked for his father, former administrator Billy Williams, for 15 years before the elder Williams retired in February.
ASHEVILLE (AP) â€” The Ohio man arrested with a loaded handgun outside a North Carolina airport as President Barack Obama was flying away will appear in court in August. The Asheville CitizenTimes reported Friday that a court appearance scheduled for 23-year-old Joseph Sean McVey of Coshocton, Ohio, has been rescheduled at his attorneys request. McVey faces a misdemeanor charge of going armed to the terror of the public and is free on a $100,000 bond. The offense carries a maximum sentence of 120 days in jail.
NOTICE Tramway Rural Fire Department Budget Hearing Tuesday, June 22nd 7:00 PM at the Fire Department 5900 McDaniel Dr
RALEIGH (AP) â€” A former staffer to U.S. Rep. Larry Kissell whoâ€™s now mulling a chance to challenge him in November said Friday he feels betrayed after the congressman filed an ethics complaint against him but acknowledged making some mistakes on the job. Wendell Fant, who until last month was Kissellâ€™s deputy district director, said in an interview he did use his U.S. House e-mail account to check on his own Veterans Affairs matter and get information about a mortgage loan modification. Kissell cited e-mails and other documents in writing Wednesday to the House ethics committee alleging Fant broke House rules. Fant, a Marine Corps reservist scheduled to
retire in August, said he didnâ€™t seek or expect any special advantage as Kissellâ€™s staff member over treatment for an illness while he was in the military. He said the loan modification with Wells Fargo had already been completed when he contacted the company. â€œI did err in using the House e-mail,â€? Fant said, but â€œI certainly wasnâ€™t trying to get any gain from anything.â€? Fant is the focus of a union-led movement trying to get him on the ballot as an independent candidate to challenge Kissell, a first-term Democrat representing North Carolinaâ€™s 8th District stretching from Charlotte east to Fort Bragg. North Carolina Families First turned in more than
35,000 signatures before a deadline Thursday to qualify Fant. Group leaders approached him last month, a few days after he resigned from his job. â€œIâ€™m certainly flattered by that effort,â€? said Fant, 42, of Concord. County election boards are now reviewing the signatures. The group will know in two weeks whether it exceeded the 16,929 signatures from registered voters needed to qualify Fant as a candidate. Fant said he hasnâ€™t yet committed to taking on his former boss. An unaffiliated candidate backed by the group, which is being funded by the Service Employees International Union, could peel off votes from Kissell in a swing congressional district and ultimately
benefit the Republican candidate. Fant said Kissell never confronted him on the accusation about his Veterans Affairs case and treated him differently from another staff member who was seeking similar help about a VA issue. Kissellâ€™s spokeswoman didnâ€™t return a phone call and e-mail seeking comment. Fant, who ran unsuccessfully for the Cabarrus County commission in 2008, knocked on votersâ€™ doors with Kissell when the congressman first ran for the House seat and defeated GOP incumbent Robin Hayes. Kissell hired Fant in January 2009. â€œHow often do you get to work with your mentor? Iâ€™m still hurt,â€? Fant said. â€œI do feel betrayed.â€?
Colonelâ€™s wife told to stay away from unit FORT BRAGG (AP) â€” Fort Braggâ€™s commander has barred the wife of an 82nd Airborne Division combat officer from most involvement on the home front after a report said sheâ€™s been undercutting morale. The decision by Lt. Gen. Frank Helmick comes after an investigation found Col. Brian Drinkwineâ€™s wife, Leslie, harassed soldiers and their families, The Fayetteville Observer reported Friday. Drinkwine leads 3,500 men in the 4th Brigade Combat Team, which has been in Afghanistan since August. Leslie Drinkwine had

been a leader of the unitâ€™s family support group, but investigators said her flareups with other spouses has been demoralizing. The colonel has said his wife speaks for him. â€œIt was just a dysfunctional situation,â€? Helmick said. â€œThat is not a good thing to have when you have soldiers deployed fighting.â€? A follow-up investigation has reached the highest levels of Army leadership in Afghanistan to find out whether disputes between Drinkwineâ€™s wife and spouses of the colonelâ€™s subordinates damaged military careers.

tal, commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, referred a recommendation from Helmick for further investigation to Lt. Gen. William Webster, who is in charge of U.S. Army forces in the Middle East, a McChrystal spokesman said. Col. Drinkwine denied unfair treatment of junior officers after their wives clashed. Both he and Leslie Drinkwine declined comment to the newspaper, which obtained a copy of Helmickâ€™s investigative file through a Freedom of Information Act request. The probe into the war of words among military wives found that problems in the 4th Brigadeâ€™s Family Readiness Group date back to October 2008. Thatâ€™s when Leslie Drinkwine confronted the
spouses of some of her husbandâ€™s subordinates at the 82nd Airborne Divisionâ€™s annual silent auction and accused them of disloyalty, the report said. The next day, she sent an e-mail to several support group leaders, both officersâ€™ wives and paid staff members, characterizing her dispute with other women at the auction as â€œan ambush from hidden domestic insurgents.â€?

Less spending by Americans Overhaul to force changes in expected to slow recovery employer plans By MARTIN CRUTSINGER AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) — Over and over in the health care debate, President Barack Obama said people who like their current coverage would be able to keep it. But an early draft of an administration regulation estimates that many employers will be forced to make changes to their health plans under the new law. In just three years, a majority of workers — 51 percent — will be in plans subject to new federal requirements, according to midrange projections in the draft. Republicans said Obama broke his promise. Employer groups were divided. It’s more evidence that the law will raise costs, said the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. But the Business Roundtable — representing CEOs of major firms — saw encouraging signs of flexibility, though it’s withholding final judgment. Some experts believe increased regulation will lead to improved benefits for consumers. “On the face of it, having consumer protections apply to all insurance plans could be a good thing for employees,” said Alex Vachon, an independent health policy consultant. “Technically, it’s actually improved coverage.” The types of changes
that employers could have to make include offering preventive care without copayments and instituting an appeals process for disputed claims that follows new federal guidelines. The law already requires all health plans to extend coverage to young adult children until they turn 26. Such incremental changes can nudge costs up. The Obama administration said the draft regulation is an early version undergoing revision. Nonetheless, the leaked document was getting widespread interest Friday in lobbying firms that represent employers and insurance companies and on Capitol Hill. “What we are getting here is a clear indication that most plans will have to change,” said James Gelfand, health policy director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “From an employer’s point of view that’s a bad thing. These changes, whether or not they’re good for consumers, are most certainly accompanied by a cost.” Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said it showed that Obama’s assurance that Americans would be able to keep the plans they currently have was “a myth” all along.
WASHINGTON — Americans are pulling back on their spending, a trend that could slow the economic recovery if it continues. A sharp drop in retail sales revenue for May shows that shoppers remain cautious, and it could lead economists to curtail their expectations for growth. Analysts cautioned against overreacting to Friday’s Commerce Department report. It could signal a return to modest growth after two unusually strong months fueled by tax refunds, rebates for energy-efficient appliances and higher gas prices. The 1.2 percent plunge in sales revenue was the largest drop in eight months. But excluding three of the most volatile sectors — autos, building materials and gasoline station sales — the figures actually rose one-tenth of a percentage point in May. And figures for some industries can vary depending on how they are calculated. For example, Commerce said auto sales fell 1.7 percent in May, but the industry itself has reported gains of 3.7 percent for the same period. They differ because the auto industry measures strictly sales volume of new cars; the government looks at revenue for cars, auto parts, tires and other products across the industry.
Well it finally happened!! (kind of) Last month we started the grading and drain work for our new construction! We will be adding new patient rooms, new offices, great new rehab space, a new dining room, and fantastic outdoor spaces for our residents, employees, and families. Much effort has gone into this project by our landlords and general contractor, and we look forward to starting construction soon! All we need now are final permits and good weather!
People walk by a sale sign at the entrance of the Levi’s store on Union Square in San Francisco. Retail sales plunged in May by the largest amount in eight months as consumers slashed spending on everything from cars to clothing. The big drop raises new worries about the durability of the economic recovery. “Both reports are right. They are just tracking different things,” said David Wyss, chief economist at Standard & Poor’s in New York. Economists remain concerned that spending won’t pick up in months ahead. Households are still facing near-double-digit unemployment. Private employers are not hiring fast enough to bring that number down. Anxiety has gripped the stock market, partly because of the European debt crisis. Any sustained pullback by shoppers could threaten the recovery because consumer spending accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. The overall economy, as measured by the gross domestic product, grew at an annual rate of 3 percent in the first three months of this year. Much of that resulted from a 3.5 percent expansion in consumer spending — the best
showing for this category in three years. Some economists cautioned that estimates of growth for the current quarter might have to be scaled back. The sharp decline in retail sales “is a reminder that households are not going to be the engine of growth for some time,” said Paul Dales, U.S. economist for Capital Economics. Contributing to the weakness is a shortage of hiring. Most economists don’t expect the unemployment rate of 9.7 percent to fall much in the coming months. The decline in May retail sales revenue was the largest since the figures fell 2.2 percent in September. The government did revise up slightly the April performance to show a gain of 0.6 percent for the month instead of the originally reported 0.4 percent increase.

Arkansas flash floods kill at least 20 people CADDO GAP, Ark. (AP) — Floodwaters that rose as swiftly as 8 feet an hour rushed into a remote Arkansas valley early Friday, killing at least 20 people, many of them campers who became trapped by a devastating wall of water. Dozens more were missing and feared dead. Heavy rains caused the normally quiet Caddo and Little Missouri rivers to climb out of their banks during the night. Around dawn, floodwaters barreled through the Albert Pike Recreation Area, a 54-unit campground in the Ouachita National Forest that was packed with vacationing families who were probably still asleep when their tents began to fill with water. The water poured through the valley with such force that it overturned RVs, peeled asphalt off roads, and swept away tents and their occupants. Two dozen people were hospitalized. Authorities rescued 60 others.
Dow set for first weekly gain in nearly a month NEW YORK (AP) — The Dow Jones industrial average is headed for its first winning week in a month. Stocks were mixed Friday following an early slump on poor retail sales figures but didn’t fall enough to offset Thursday’s big rally. The Dow pared sharp morning losses after a report showed consumers are gaining confidence in the economy, even if they aren’t returning to stores. Treasury prices climbed and pushed down interest rates after spiking Thursday.
Google tells lawmakers it never used Wi-Fi data
WASHINGTON (AP) — Google Inc. is telling lawmakers that it never dissected or used any of the information that it accidentally sucked up while collecting data about public Wi-Fi networks in more than 30 countries. In a letter to three key members of the House Commerce Committee, the company apologized for collecting fragments of e-mails, search requests and other online activities over unencrypted Wi-Fi networks. The company got the information while photographing neighborhoods for its “Street View” mapping feature. Google said it was trying to gather information about the location, strength and configuration of Wi-Fi networks so it could improve the accuracy of location-based services such as Google Maps and driving directions. Going further and collecting snippets of information traveling over those networks “was a mistake,” Pablo Chavez, Google’s director of public policy, wrote in the letter.
As Clinton counsel, Kagan defended religion rights
WASHINGTON (AP) — As a counsel to former President Bill Clinton, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan blasted a California court for rejecting a landlady’s claim that a state anti-discrimination law violated her religious freedom. In a 1996 memo, Kagan suggested that the case should be taken by the Supreme Court and that the justices should side with the landlady, who refused to rent to unmarried couples. The memo is part of a roughly 40,000-page trove of documents released Friday that shed more light on what kind of justice Kagan might be. The papers also reveal that Kagan helped draft an executive order detailing federal employees’ rights to express their religion in the workplace.

Library pokes fun at politics By BRETT ZONGKER Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON — Bob Hope was joking about presidents before it was completely kosher. When he got his first radio show, he knew he couldn’t keep it funny with “39 weeks of mother-in-law jokes,” as he put it. So Hope pioneered topical monologues — copied by many comedians since — and suddenly the presidents were fair game. Hope’s long career spoofing presidents and politicians from Franklin D. Roosevelt through Bill Clinton traces the ever evolving link between entertainment and politics in an exhibit opening Friday at the Library of Congress. For the first time, the library is placing Hope’s joke file of 85,000 pages on public view, arranged by topic in digital kiosks. “It’s really a thrill,” said his daughter and longtime producer Linda Hope. “I was on the other side of so much of this, like his trips going overseas to entertain the troops.” Hope died in 2003, just after his 100th birthday, but was telling jokes almost until the end. Early in his career, he was nervous about making fun of Roosevelt. At his first White House correspondents’ dinner in 1944, he
Linda Hope looks at an interactive of jokes in a new exhibit featuring her father, Bob Hope, at the Library of Congress, in Washington, on Thursday. didn’t know how the jokes would go over. “But he just decided he was going to be brash and let them have it — but being respectful,” said Linda Hope. “That was the thing that kind of set Dad apart a little bit: He was really basically respectful of both sides of the political argument.” And he was a hit at the Roosevelt press dinner, said curator Alan Gevinson. “People said, ’He’s another Will Rogers,’ who had just died in 1935, as far as becoming part of the Washington political scene,” Gevinson said. It helped that Hope was friends with almost all the presidents over the years, even though he joked President Ronald Reagan as the oldest chief ex-
ecutive made Poligrip “the official presidential seal” and that Clinton’s inauguration would be the first to require an intermission. He also had zingers for Congress, saying they spent his money faster than he could make it. “Normally, I don’t go for political jokes — too many of them are getting elected,” he once said. He didn’t want to be president himself, Hope said, because his wife, Dolores, “wouldn’t want to move to a smaller house.” Comedian Stephen Colbert greets visitors to the exhibit, “Hope for America: Performers, Politics and Pop Culture,” in a video tribute. The satirical conservative TV pundit even takes a swing with the trademark golf club
that Hope liked to use as a vaudeville cane. The club from Hope’s 1969 world USO tour is on display, along with his Presidential Medal of Freedom awarded by President Lyndon B. Johnson. Colbert salutes his own portrait in the intro but turns serious when he calls Hope “not just a funny man” but “a patriot.” He also paid tribute to Hope on his show last year, with golf club in hand, when he visited troops in Iraq. “Some of the younger troops have asked me what the golf club is all about,” Colbert said at the time. “Well, it is partly an homage to Bob Hope who did USOs like this for 250 years. Good man.” The exhibit draws on Hope’s extensive collection of personal papers, films and radio and television broadcasts, which he donated to the library in 1998. It also features clips and stories from Johnny Carson, David Letterman, the Smothers Brothers and others. Hope’s story intersects with changes in the country, from the McCarthy hearings to President John F. Kennedy’s election, which was “a catalyst for entertainers to start speaking their minds again,” as politics changed and Kennedy invited artists into the White House, Gevinson said.

NEW YORK (AP) — Usher says he knew his latest song would be a hit in the clubs, but he didn’t think that would translate into his own home. The singer told The Usher Associated Press this week that he knew “OMG” would have “incredible energy” but adds: “Did I know that my children would love it at 1 and 2? I only hoped.” The thumping dance tune is produced by will.i.am (wil eye am) and is his ninth No. 1 single. It’s from his gold-selling album “Raymond v. Raymond.” The 31-year-old is the father of 2-year-old sons Usher Raymond V and 1year-old Naviyd (nah-VEED’) Ely Raymond. He divorced their mother, Tameka Foster, last year. Usher credits will.i.am for the song’s success. He says the Black Eyed Peas leader always “keeps his finger on the pulse of where the world is and what they’re listening.”

honor for the director. “Mike is one of the few people in the world who’s an ‘egot,”’ Roberts, the star of Nichols’ films “Closer” and “Charlie Wilson’s War,” said Thursday night to open the star-studded tribute. “It means he’s won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony.” Roberts actually was shortchanging Nichols. Along with his best-director Academy Award for “The Graduate” and his Grammy for a comedy Nichols album with former partner Elaine May, Nichols is a multiple winner for the top honors on television and the stage — four Emmys, eight Tonys. “What doesn’t Mike do?” Roberts told the audience, filled with such Nichols collaborators as Dustin Hoffman, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Warren Beatty, Emma Thompson, Harrison Ford, Shirley MacLaine and Natalie Portman. “Everything about Mike makes everything about everything just better.” The dinner honoring the 78-year-old Nichols, held in a Sony Pictures soundstage where part of “The Wizard of Oz” was filmed, featured clips from his movies and TV programs, a highlight from his and May’s 1960s comedy act, musical numbers and speeches overflowing with hilarious anecdotes and bottomless affection from his collaborators.
Film company seeks to buy Mich. movie complex ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — A film company seeks to buy a 105-acre movie and television studio complex in suburban Detroit. Global Renaissance Entertainment Group Inc. has submitted a proposal to buy the property from the city of Allen Park, which bought the former automotive facility for $25 million and retooled it for film production. Both company Chief Executive Arthur Wylie and city officials confirmed the proposal Friday at the complex. Financial terms weren’t disclosed, but Mayor Gary Burtka said the city is interested. The complex would become the permanent headquarters for Global Renaissance, which has offices in Los Angeles, Atlanta and Charlotte. Michigan has been drawing more moviemakers since 2008, when tax incentives among the nation’s most generous took effect.

If BP were found to have committed gross negligence or willful misconduct, the civil fine could be up to $4,300 per barrel, or up to $11.1 billion. â€œItâ€™s going to blow the record books up,â€? said Eric Schaeffer, who led the Environmental Protection Agencyâ€™s enforcement office from 1997 to 2002. A larger spill also could lead to increased environmental hazards, with shrimp, crabs and fish such as marlin and swordfish especially hard hit. â€œCertainly if there are greater volumes of oil than were originally estimated,

that doesnâ€™t bode well,â€? said Jim Franks, a fisheries biologist at the University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Research Laboratory. â€œDo we expect twice the impact? I donâ€™t know how to judge that, but that much more oil could not be good at all for fish and wildlife resources. I would anticipate farreaching impacts.â€? Days after the spill began, government officials told the public that the ruptured well a mile below the Gulf was leaking 42,000 gallons a day. Then, officials said it was actually five times bigger. That estimate didnâ€™t last long either. The new estimates are based on spillcam video as well as such things as satellite, sonar and pressure readings. The lead scientist in the effort said the most credible range at the moment is between 840,000 gallons and 1.68 million gallons a day. Another part of the equation is how much more oil started to leak last week after the riser pipe was cut, a step that BP and government officials said could increase the flow by 20 percent. The pipe cut was necessary to install a cap over the well; the cap

LOS ANGELES (AP) â€” A 16-year-old California girl who was feared lost at sea while sailing solo around the world has been found alive and well, adrift in the southern Indian Ocean with rescue boats headed toward her, officials said. After a tense 20 hours of silence, a Qantas Airbus A330 search plane made contact with Abby Sunderland late Thursday in the south Indian Ocean where her boat was knocked down repeatedly by huge waves and she lost satellite phone contact. Qantas Airline spokesman Tom Woodward said the teenager was spotted half way between Australia and Africa and the plane crew spoke with her by radio. â€œAbbyâ€™s in an okay condition; the yachtâ€™s damaged but its seaworthy,â€? Woodward told The Associated Press. â€œSheâ€™s aware that there are other boats on the way to her location.â€? Sunderland told searchers she was doing fine with a space heater and at least two weeks worth of food, family spokesman William Bennett said.
Worried families calling Arlington about mix-ups WASHINGTON (AP) â€” Arlington National Cemetery is getting a steady stream of phone calls from families worried that the remains of their loved ones may have been misidentified or misplaced. Spokeswoman Kaitlin Horst says that 100 people phoned in the first two hours Friday, after the historic burial ground opened a special call center for families of the 300,000 military veterans, war casualties and other dignitaries buried there. The Army announced Thursday that an investigation found potentially hundreds

has captured an estimated 4 million gallons so far. If the higher-end estimates prove accurate, the leak amounts to an Exxon Valdez every five days or so. At that rate, in just over three weeks from now it will eclipse the worst oil spill in peacetime history, the 1979 Ixtoc disaster in Mexico, which took 10 months to belch out 140 million gallons of oil into the Gulf. And thereâ€™s more bad news. The oil gushing from the Gulf contains large amounts of natural gas. Samantha Joye, a professor of marine sciences at the University of Georgia, said that can contribute significantly to oxygen levels plummeting in the water as microbes eat the methane clouds. In addition to the potential for billions in fines, BP is responsible for paying all cleanup costs and up to $75 million for economic damages. But it could face far heavier expenses if gross negligence is found or if it is determined that there was a violation of a federal safety, construction or operating regulation, Schaeffer said. â€œYou bet the trial lawyers are sharpening their swords around that language,â€? he said. And thatâ€™s not including the tens of billions of dollars in shareholder wealth that has already evaporated with the plunge of BPâ€™s stock since the disaster. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg became a lonely defender of BP, declaring the world should not rush to point fingers at the British oil giant. The billionaire tycoon often sides with CEOs and businesses entangled in public relations disasters.

GULF OIL DISASTER
GRAND ISLE, La. (AP) â€” The mind-boggling news that the oil leak at the bottom of the sea may be twice as big as previously thought could have major repercussions for both the environment and BPâ€™s financial health, killing more marine life and dramatically increasing the amount the company must pay in fines and damages. Scientists now say the blown-out well could have been spewing as much as 2 million gallons of crude before a cut-and-cap maneuver started capturing some of the flow, meaning more than 100 million gallons may have leaked into the Gulf of Mexico since the start of the disaster in April. That is more than nine times the size of the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster, previously the worst oil spill in U.S. history. The larger estimates, while still preliminary and considered a worst-case scenario, could contribute to breathtaking liabilities against BP. Penalties can be levied against the company under a variety of environmental protection laws, including fines of up to $1,100 under the Clean Water Act for each barrel of oil spilled. Based on the maximum

19 slain at Mexico drug center, 20 in another city
CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) â€” At least 30 gunmen burst into a drug rehabilitation center in a Mexican border state capital and opened fire, killing 19 men and wounding others, police said. Gunmen also killed 20 people in another drugplagued northern city. The killings marked one of the bloodiest weeks ever in Mexico and came just weeks after authorities discovered 55 bodies in an abandoned silver mine, presumably victims of the countryâ€™s drug violence. The bullet-riddled bodies of 18 men and two women were found Friday in five different parts of Ciudad Madero, a city in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas, where violence has surged this year amid a turf battle between the Gulf cartel and its former ally, the Zetas gang of hit men. Police had no information on suspects. It was the deadliest day in Tamaulipas drug violence since 18 gunmen died in clashes with soldiers in April.
Van der Sloot taken to prison on murder charge LIMA, Peru (AP) â€” Angry Peruvian onlookers shouted â€œDisgrace!â€? and â€œMurdererâ€? at Joran van der Sloot on Friday after a judge ordered him jailed on first-degree murder and robbery charges in the violent killing of a 21-year-old Lima woman. Prosecutors said the Dutchman, who was taken to a segregated block of an eastern Lima prison, acted with â€œferocity and great crueltyâ€? in killing business student Stephany Flores in his hotel room after they met playing poker. Van der Sloot remains the lone suspect in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway on the Caribbean resort island of Aruba, and Peruâ€™s criminal police chief says the defendant told interrogators he knows where her body is. Arubaâ€™s attorney general, Taco Stein, told The Associated Press on Friday he is skeptical Van der Sloot was telling the truth about Hollowayâ€™s body. He said Aruban officials will decide whether to sent investigators to Peru to question him once they learn exactly what he is offering.

COURT BARS VITAL EVIDENCE IN BONDS CASE
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Barry Bonds won a big legal victory Friday that could put his long-delayed perjury trial back on track. A divided three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday that prosecutors may not present positive urine samples and other vital evidence that the government says shows that the slugger knowingly used steroids. The appeals court ruling upholds a lower court decision made in February 2009 barring federal prosecutors from showing the jury any evidence collected by Bonds’ personal trainer Greg Anderson. Bonds’ perjury trial, which was scheduled to start in March 2009, has been delayed pending the outcome of this appeal. Bonds lead attorney Allen Ruby said the next step depends on what prosecutors do with the ruling, but that the evidence excluded was vital to the case against baseball’s home-run king. “Presumably, the government wouldn’t have delayed this case a year and a half unless they thought it was very important,” Ruby said. Lead prosecutors Matt Parrella and Jeff Nedrow didn’t return telephone calls. U.S. Department of Justice spokesman Jack Gillund declined comment.
NASCAR kurt busch captures pole in michigan
BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — Kurt Busch is on the pole for Sunday’s NASCAR race at Michigan International Speedway. Busch posted an average speed of 189.984 mph around the two-mile oval during Friday’s qualifying. Jamie McMurray will start second and Jimmie Johnson will start third in the 400-mile race. The pole is Busch’s second of the year and 12th of his career. He’s a two-time winner at Michigan, having captured the checkered flag at the track in 2003 and 2007. Busch already has wins at Atlanta and Charlotte this year and is fifth in points with 12 races remaining until NASCAR’s playoffs begin.

Former Lee County baseball standout Trey Such prepares to make contact with the ball during a recent game with the Morehead City Marlins, a Coastal Plain League team. Such played in nine games with the Marlins before being released on Friday. Such finished with 10 hits and two RBI in 32 appearances at the plate.
Such enjoyed time playing with Morehead City Marlins By RYAN SARDA email@example.com SANFORD — Although it came to an unexpected end, former Lee County baseball standout Trey Such had a once in a lifetime experience with the Morehead City Marlins. Such, a rising junior at Methodist University, was one of four Monarchs called up by the Marlins in the absence of some NCAA Division I players finishing their seasons in the College World Series. The Marlins are a member of the Coastal Plain League, a summer collegiate baseball league featuring 15 teams in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Unfortunately for Such, his run with the Marlins and in the Coastal Plain League came to an end as he was released by the club on Friday to make room for N.C. State catcher Chris Schaeffer.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Paterno vs. Pelini. Huskers vs. Hawkeyes. Trips to Columbus, Ohio, instead of Columbia, Mo. So long, Big 12. Nebraska’s membership in the Big Ten Conference is official. The Big Ten’s board of presidents and chancellors unanimously welcomed Nebraska to the club on Friday afternoon, a little more than an hour after the school announced it had applied for membership. The move takes effect July 1, 2011. Nebraska chancellor Harvey Perlman said the Big Ten offers stability “that the Big 12 simply cannot offer.” Nebraska is the Big Ten’s first addition since 1990, when Penn State became the 11th member, and it comes just six months after the league announced that it was looking at expansion. Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said he presumed there would be a Big Ten championship football game beginning in 2011. He also said the conference would “pause” from further expansion over the next 12 to 18 months. He declined to comment on whether Notre Dame or any other school was on the league’s radar. Delany, wearing a red-and-white tie and a ’N’ lapel pin, said he anticipates a wonderful marriage between Nebraska and the Big Ten. “This beautiful girl, quite honestly, wasn’t going to be there forever,” Delany said, referring to the Huskers. “They were faced with some tough decisions. We had done enough personal interaction with them that we felt this would be a great fit. We encouraged Nebraska to go down that road.” Nebraska leaves behind a Big 12 that had already lost Colorado to the Pac-10 this week. Perlman also said the Pac-10 had been in touch with many schools in the Big 12 South, sug-

Sixty years later, USA and England meet again By RONALD BLUM AP Sports Writer
RUSTENBURG, South Africa — When they emerged victorious the last time, they wound up calling it “The Game of Their Lives.” Once-unknown players have spent a lifetime reliving memories of that unexpected night in Belo Horizonte, when the United States rose up and defeated mighty England in the World Cup. Sixty years removed and 4,449 miles from that stadium in Brazil, the nations finally meet again Saturday in a game that matters,
a rematch in this year’s World Cup opener for both teams. Once again, England is stocked with the talented and the wealthy, carrying the hopes of long-suffering supporters who still believe even though 44 years have passed since the Three Lions’ last and only World Cup title. And while the Americans are no longer obscure, and many have gained experience with the very Premier League clubs that produced England’s stars, they remain outsid-

Logano feels he was â€™done wrongâ€™ by Harvick BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) â€” Kevin Harvick can deal with Joey Loganoâ€™s aggressive driving. He can tolerate the weekly battles on the Nationwide and Sprint Cup circuits as the veteran and the youngster test each otherâ€™s patience. Harvick can even put up with NASCARâ€™s youngest Cup driver taking a shot at his manhood by saying Harvickâ€™s wife DeLana â€œwears the firesuit in the family.â€? Thatâ€™s all fine, to a point. Harvickâ€™s bigger concern these days isnâ€™t whoâ€™s in charge of his de-
cision making, itâ€™s whoâ€™s in charge of Loganoâ€™s. Harvick blasted Loganoâ€™s father Tom on Friday, arguing the elder Logano needs to step aside and stop meddling in his sonâ€™s racing career following a very public dustup between the two camps during last weekâ€™s Cup race at Pocono. â€œHis father has no place in this,â€? Harvick said. â€œHe needs to step back and act like the rest of the dads and be happy that his kid is here. This isnâ€™t Little League baseball anymore.â€?
The lecture from the current Cup points leader followed a series of runins between Harvick and Joey Logano, the most public of which came moments after the checkered flag dropped at Pocono. Logano, angry at Harvick for nudging him out of the way as they battled near the lead with barely a lap remaining in regulation, charged toward Harvickâ€™s pit box. The 20year-old jumped out of his No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota and had to be restrained by members of Harvickâ€™s crew. His father,
