Budget passes; no tax cut Manager’s $41.4 million plan for 2010-11 garners approval by 4-3 vote By BILLY BALL


SANFORD — A bitterly divided Sanford City Council signed off on a $41.4 million budget ordinance Tuesday, squashing some council

Less than a week on the job, David Miller already has his first win in a Cavalier uniform Page 1B


members’ calls for at least a 1cent property tax decrease for residents. The spending package that passed maintains the city’s current 54-cent property tax rate and included $46,000 for struggling local nonprofits.

Proponents of City Manager Hal Hegwer’s proposed budget for the 2010-2011 fiscal year said the city would be set back by the roughly $206,000 hit to revenues that would come from a 1-cent tax decrease. That money is better spent

on projects like mending bumpy Sanford roads, said Councilman L.I. “Poly” Cohen. “It’s a great city and I want to keep it that way,” Cohen said.

SANFORD — Better marketing and the addition of weekend hours are just a few ways the County of Lee Transit System can improve its service, members of the Lee County community said at a public transportation workshop Tuesday. COLTS hosted two workshops at the Civic Center to share information with the public about its five-year plan and receive feedback about changes people feel should be made to the system.

Kimley-Horn and Associates, COLTS is in the early stages of a six-month development process for constructing a five-year plan. “You’ve got a great system today, but there’s always room for improvement,” Michael Rutkowski of KimleyHorn and Associates said.

“You’re taking your existing services — good, bad and ugly — and looking at how it operates.” About 15 people from Sanford and Broadway attended the first workshop, and several of them mentioned that most people perceive COLTS as a service for the elderly and disabled. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen it marketed to the general public,” Stella Chester of Sanford said.

Analysis: In history of political missteps, Etheridge’s is peanuts


f you know or have met Bob Etheridge — which I’m sure many of you do or have — then it’s likely you share my surprise at the video that has now made him the subject of nationwide public scrutiny. That surprise exists for a number of reasons, two of which stick out most. First, Bob’s a genuinely nice guy. In my three years in Sanford, North Carolina, he’s been nothing but cordial, funny and even a bit “folksy,” whether it’s a ribbon cutting, a veterans ceremony or a political appearance. We’ve seen calmly take heated questions in health care town halls … even answer those questions with a grin. Even his political enemies in North Carolina are shocked at his moment of “losing it.” Second, he’s smart. You don’t become a seven-term U.S. congressman without “knowing the score,” which makes it all the more shock-

GOOD MORNING Pet of the Week Carolina Animal Rescue and Adoption

Little Bit Little Bit is a 2-year-old female chestnut and orange domestic short hair tuxedo. She is a gentle soul that is delighted to sit (or lie) back and watch the world go by. Little Bit outgrew her name some time ago and now qualifies as a “plus size” kitty (more to love). She came to CARA with her littermate, “Miles,” and CARA is offering all kitties one-year and older for a reduced adoption fee of $25 in June (“Adopt a Shelter Cat” month). Miles is equally laid back and aside from being beautiful additions to any home, they promise years of companionship (along with not laughing at you if you do something unmentionably silly). Both are of course, litter box trained. Little Bit is current on vaccines and preventatives, FeLV and FIV negative, micro chipped and spayed. See CARA’s Web site ( for more info or to apply to adopt.

Visitors bureau wins tourism award

PITTSBORO -- The Pittsboro-Siler City Convention & Visitors Bureau has won two statewide awards for its efforts to market the county as a visitor destination. The Destination Marketing Association of North Carolina presents the awards annually. For 2009, the CVB has received a Gold Award for its monthly electronic newsletter, Tourism ChitCHAT, and an Innovation in Tourism Award for its efforts to promote workforce development in education. Initially published in August 2002, Tourism ChitCHAT is distributed monthly to visitors and media requesting visitor information about Chatham County. It received Platinum Awards in both 2007 and 2008. The CVB has received four Innovation in Tourism Awards over the past two years. The 2009 award recognizes the CVB’s work with schools.The CVB created a PowerPoint presentation for middle school classes on marketing the county as a destination, including teaching students to use marketing tools. The CVB first made the presentation as part of a classroom project, but it was further developed into a teaching tool and has been used to help promote interest in tourism as a career. — from staff reports


Cooperative to host beekeepers celebration

PITTSBORO -- The Chatham County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension and the Chatham County Beekeepers’ Association will host their fourth annual celebration of National Pollinator Week on 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 26. The event will be held on the lawn at Chatham Mills in Pittsboro. The purpose of National Pollinator Week is to teach pollinator-friendly practices and raise public awareness of the importance of the bees, beetles, butterflies, moths, flies, birds and bats that are needed to produce 80 percent of our flowering plants and one third of human food crops. In addition to programs for adults and children, visitors can meet local bee-

keepers and learn about what it takes to produce the local honey available at Chatham Marketplace. View the complete schedule and get all the details on the Growing Small Farms website at http://www.ces.ncsu. edu/chatham/ag/SustAg/ 2010pollinatorweek.html — from staff reports


Group lobbies to end N.C. govt bargaining ban RALEIGH (AP) — School bus drivers, cafeteria workers and custodians are among the public employees who want North Carolina to change a state law banning collective bargaining for government employees. The school workers on Tuesday joined representatives of the state’s labor unions and workers’ rights groups to call on the General Assembly to repeal the 51-year-old law. North Carolina forbids state and local governments from entering into collective bargaining deals with their employees. Virginia is the only other state with such a ban. North Carolina had the lowest union membership rate in the country in 2009 at 3 percent of workers.


Police arrest 4 in protest of school policy RALEIGH (AP) — Police arrested four civil rights activists who staged a demonstration to protest a North Carolina county school board’s decision to end a busing program. Multiple media outlets reported Tuesday that four activists were arrested after disrupting a meeting of the Wake County Board of Education in Raleigh. Those arrested include state NAACP leader the Rev. William Barber. A woman who answered the phone at NAACP headquarters Tuesday would not comment. A Raleigh police spokesman said he didn’t have firm details about the arrests. The activists were protesting the board’s decision to end a busing program aimed at promoting economic diversity in North Carolina’s largest school district. The protesters say the new policy will effectively resegregate Wake schools.

Bill calls for study of park By JONATHAN OWENS

SANFORD — Lee County is closer than ever to landing its first state park. The area’s representatives in the N.C. General Assembly have filed bills directing the state Department of Cultural Resources to conduct a survey on the feasibility of creating a state park around the Endor Iron Furnace site, located in northwest Lee County. N.C. Rep. Jimmy Love Sr. (D-Lee) and N.C. Sen. Bob Atwater have introduced bills in their respective branches of the legislature asking for $5,000 to be appropriated for the study. Love said he feels confident the request would pass, and added the department would likely pay for the study out of its own budget. “The effort has legs

now,� he said. “It’s a real possibility, if everyone can come together.� Love added that he was in the legislature in the 1960s when Raven Rock State Park in Harnett County came to fruition. He said the process with the Endor Iron Furnace would be similar, with the park starting small and building itself into a large tract of land. Located on the banks of the Deep River near the Cumnock area, the Endor Iron Furnace turned out pig iron in the mid-1800s and was most active during the Civil War, producing pig iron for the South. Today, much of the furnace still stands, though time has taken its toll on it. The state now owns the site after the Triangle Land Conservancy turned over the 420 acres that included the furnace and nearly a mile of riverfront in 2002 to it. N.C. Secre-

tary of Cultural Resources Linda Carlisle toured the property in November 2009 and said she was impressed Lee County’s oldest historic site. Stabilization of the furnace itself, making it safe for parkgoers, would likely be a significant expenditure for the state, as well as building parking, hiking trails and other amenities. “Absolutely this can be a park,� she said while on the tour. “Given its location and size, and its central location in the state and the fact that it

includes this pristine site. Of course, there are always going to be funding issues no matter what.� Worth Pickard, president of the Railroad House Historical Society and a strong advocate for the park, said Tuesday he thought a state park around the furnace would be popular with tourists. “I realize money’s tight right now, but it could be the best thing that has ever happened to this area,� Pickard said. “I want to see it become a park, and I’m not going to give up on it.�

Workshop step toward getting COLTS on map Our View Issue: Tuesday’s meeting on public transportation in Lee County

Our stance: We hope COLTS considers more workshops in the future. With recognition, the other pieces will fall into place.


f you weren’t aware that Lee County operated its own transit system, then you’re not alone. Public transportation in our area isn’t a necessity as it might be in a metropolitan area or a community with a higher poverty level, but there is a growing segment of our population who could us — and would use — public buses or vans if they were made more available to them. The County of Lee Transit System held two workshops Wednesday to share with the public its five-year plan and to receive feedback from those

who currently use the program or want to use it. The workshops were sparsely attended, though that fact is somewhat of a Catch-22. Those who need public transit aren’t likely to drive to the civic center for an afternoon program (though, in COLTS’ defense, it did offer to pick up anybody who wanted to attend). But we applaud COLTS and the Raleigh-based consulting firm Kimley-Horn and Associates for going public with its plan and offering to share its future with the people who’ll likely benefit from it. Read more about the program in today’s

Herald or at According to the latest Census figures, nearly 1,000 families currently living in apartments or condos are without any vehicle. More than 2,500 renters (many of them families) have just one car. And another 500plus homeowners have no car. These are people who would qualify as “needing” another form of transportation. It is unknown whether or not seniors living in nursing homes or assisted-living apartments figure into these statistics, but currently these folks are the county’s biggest users of public transit.

According to Jonathan Whitehurst of K-H and Associates, the disabled also use COLTS, and more and more Hispanics rely on it to get to work. COLTS’ biggest hurdle will be letting the community know it exists. Beyond that, it will be measuring its relevancy. It’s doubtful Sanford will need a full-on bus system any time soon, but an improved and more recognizable transit system is a step in the right direction. We hope COLTS considers more workshops in the future. With recognition, the other pieces will fall into place.

Letters to the Editor Etheridge owes nobody an apology for video To the Editor: Congressman Etheridge should not have to apologize to anyone for anything. He was ambushed by, most probably, a dirty tricks-playing right wing plant, and he had every right to protect himself, especially when his harasser would not identify himself nor back away. I only wish the congressman had decked the jerk. As for Ms. (Linda) Shook, I sincerely hope she has the opportunity to deal with a similar incident coming at her from the left. We’ll see how graciously she handles it. More importantly, there is a lesson here for the voters: Watch out for dirty tricks politics being played by the right wing. It has been happening for decades, it is getting worse, and they will steal your vote right out from under you. LARRY MINTZ Sanford

Visiting Va. Beach


estination: Virginia Beach, Va. A quick weekend trip to Virginia Beach turned into a excursion that was a nice break from routine activities. My wife, daughter and her friend set the plans in motion as they were to join others for a ghost investigation at the historic Ferry Plantation House. As we headed to Virginia Beach on Saturday, there was a stop for lunch in Nashville, N.C., at Doug Sauls BBQ & Seafood. I’ve been to this restaurant on several previous occasions and highly recommend a stop there if you’re in the area. The barbecue was good and the boiled potatoes were delicious. Upon arrival to Virginia Beach, we visited the Ferry Plantation House circa 1830. Unlike many plantations where the house may be the center point of a large area of property, this house is in the midst of a subdivision of homes that was developed in the late 1980s. Although the house was closed when we arrived, Director Belinda Nash was present and was ever so gracious in allowing us inside so that we could visit this stately home. According to a brochure on the house, it “was constructed in part of brick salvaged from a fire that destroyed the circa 1828 Walke Manor House that preceded it on the site.” The Ferry Plantation property has a long history and the home is now owned by the City of Virginia Beach with much assistance from the Friends of the Ferry Plantation House Inc. The FOFPH is “a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation, restoration, operation and maintenance of the Ferry Plantation House and grounds,” according to a FOFPH newsletter. Later that evening, the ghost investigation was conducted — but yours truly sat out that part of the trip and stayed at a hotel in a modern Town Center area of town. The area includes a nearby mall and many modern shopping, dining, entertainment and services nearby. It’s a modern setting, with the Virginia Beach oceanfront within a 15-minute drive. Of course, the Hampton Roads area is rich with sites and activities galore with Norfolk nearby, and Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens within an hour drive. One of my favorite things to do on any trip is to occasionally stop at those out-of-the-way places that look interesting. On this trip, it was a stop to Whitby’s Country Store off Highway 58, not far from Interstate 85, in Brodnax, Va. It’s a store with a business card that lists country hams, side meats and country cheese. I bought several items, including fresh sausage. I asked one of the employees if the sausage was made nearby. Their reply was that it was made by the owners themselves the day before. Now that is what I call fresh!

Korea’s kingdom of lies


EOUL — In past elections for North Korea’s Supreme People’s Assembly, authorities have reported 100 percent voter participation and a 100 percent approval rate for all the candidates. During the last election, however, the government admitted a 99.98 percent voter turnout — though public approval held steady at 100 percent. Such are the increments of North Korean concessions to reality. The regime’s constitution is deception. Everything, starting with the birthplace of its leader, is a lie. In more than 60 years, North Korea has never published an honest or complete set of economic indicators. Its history books simply make up events — Americans who harvest organs of Koreans in hospital basements, or missionaries who crucify Korean children. So it is not easy to part the curtain on the internal dynamics of the regime itself. But South Korean academics and government officials report recent glimpses. After much delay, Kim Jong Il’s third son, Kim Jong Eun — reputed to be a carbon copy of his father — has been chosen as successor. The crown prince is young (27) and inexperienced, which seems to be the point. Kim Jong Il’s brother-in-law has been appointed a kind of guardian or prince regent. In the event of Kim Jong Il’s death, North Korea’s old guard — a few dozen faceless bureaucrats and generals in their 70s and 80s — would remain in control. The North Korean regime is part Stalinist political organization, part dynasty and part mafia family. The capos depend on the authority of the don for their survival and Rolexes, but they also seek to control him, especially during a transition of power. The North Korean criminal enterprise has one main goal — the accumulation of hard currency, used to support its lifestyle and to purchase military hardware. It gains currency through narcotics trafficking, counterfeiting, the sale of arms and nuclear technology, and a successful extortion racket. The mafia muscle, in this case, is 1.5 million soldiers, chemical, biological and nuclear weapons and some 13,000 artillery tubes aimed at downtown Seoul. From 1998 to 2008, South Korea attempted to buy protection with $2.2 billion in cash. This ATM policy was remarkably transparent on both sides. The Two Koreas Summit in 2000 was delayed for a day because $500 million in cash had not yet been wired to a North Korean account. For a decade, this strategy was effective — for North Korea. Periodic missile and nuclear tests and military provocations served as reminders to keep the checks coming. South Korean governments cooperated fully, hoping to avoid instability at nearly any cost. It was the perfect test of a policy of eager engagement and pre-emptive bribery. In practice, it rewarded and encouraged extortion, proliferation and destabilizing North Korean tantrums. The election of South Korean President Lee

Ashamed of Etheridge To the Editor: I am totally ashamed to be represented by Bob Etheridge. Hopefully he will do the right thing and resign, for “health reasons,” immediately. JOE JOYCE Sanford

Country doesn’t need Arizona’s immigration law

Michael Gerson Columnist Michael Gerson is a columnist with the Washington Post Writers Group

Myung-bak in 2007 marked a shift. The ATM policy ended. The south has promised largescale payments only if North Korea abandons its nuclear program. While China still supplies most of North Korea’s oil and food, hard currency is getting harder to come by. Arms shipments are watched. Funds from North Koreans living in Japan have dried up. South Korean officials estimate that Kim Jong Il is now getting perhaps $700 million a year in hard currency — not a particularly good haul. But there are limits to the policy of isolation as well. Given that North Koreans did not revolt when millions were dying of starvation in the mid-1990s, it is difficult to imagine that economic pressure alone will bring down a committed, completely ruthless regime that cares nothing for the opinion of the world or the lives of its own people. The most fragile thing about the North Korean regime is the structure of deception that supports it. Its main vulnerability is internal and ideological. Its propaganda appeals to nationalism and racial pride. But the regime has made North Korea a laughingstock while another Korea is the envy of the world. It pretends to socialism. But North Korea is ruled by a privileged class of unimaginable excess. In addition to a policy of economic isolation, it would be worth trying a policy of ideological exposure — an aggressive, patient, well-funded information assault by South Korea and the United States. Clandestine distribution of radios and cell phones. Video exposure of the gulags. History texts on flash drives for the educated. Information on the decadence of the elite for the common folk. Other options have failed. We should test if the North Korean regime can survive the collapse of its lies.

To the Editor: The Arizona immigration law, which has appropriately drawn protests, boycotts, and legal challenges nationwide, requires law enforcement officers to stop and inquire about the status of anyone they “suspect” of being there without documentation. Will they stop white folks, or African-Americans? I doubt it. But just about anyone who appears to be Latino will be harassed, as has already been happening there to many people of Latino origin who were born in the U.S. and have lived here for generations — even before the law officially goes into effect. Does this remind you of those tales of the old Soviet Union we all grew up on? Or maybe just your gardenvariety police state? We don’t need laws like this in our country. A recent FBI report shows that southwestern cities, with more Latino immigrants than anywhere else in the country, have the lowest crime rates — including San Diego, Calif. The hype over “border security” is just that, hype. We can’t allow ourselves to be ruled by fear, especially irrational fear. Let’s do the right thing and boycott Arizona until it rejoins a country that respects human rights. JOAN F. WALSH Durham

And then deliver information, unbiased.” Today’s workshop will focus on the process of drilling for natural gas and how to secure your interests when a company comes calling for land.

ing that many in the country now know Bob Etheridge as the “man who attacked a student.” He saw the camera(s) ... he’s aware that we all live in the YouTube age, where falling on your head will get you a million-plus views. Calf wrangling a guy who asks you a question in public is more than enough to not only secure your place in the 24-hour news cycle, but get the political pundits chattering as well. The video, if you haven’t seen it or heard about it by now, shows Etheridge being approached by a young man (face blurred to protect his identity) who asks about his support of President Obama’s agenda ... a question that leads to Etheridge repeatedly asking the young man to identify himself. In the process, Etheridge, visibly annoyed by the line of questioning, grabs the man by his wrist and at one point, grabs him by the back of the neck to pull him in closer. Fortunately for Etheridge, in the grand scheme of political missteps, this is merely a hiccup. Calling his actions an “attack” — as many have — is stretching it a bit. Uncalled for? Yes. Aggressive? Yes. Worthy of an apology? Absolutely. A criminal assault? Hardly. Count it as an interesting one-day headline grabber on level with the Virginia senator’s “macaca moment,” and the South Carolina congressman’s “You lie!” moment. Quickly … can you name either of these men? Etheridge’s gaffe won’t have legs nationally, but it will take more than a printed apology and quick press conference to make people forget it in Central North Carolina, the only place Etheridge and his camp need to worry about right now. The “macaca” senator, Republican George Allen, lost his re-election big in 2006, months after his gaffe.

The Sanford Herald / Wednesday, June 16, 2010 / 5A pre-registered because Cooperative Extension workers won’t be able to verify that everyone who turns out signed up or not. Once the facility hits its capacity of 250 people, no more can enter under fire safety codes, she said. One of those drillers in Lee County is local man Charles Roberts. Roberts once worked for oil giant Amoco and has owned his own company since 1984. Today, Roberts said he has purchased several thousand acres of land in Lee County for natural gas drilling for his Old North State Energy Company. Officials say the work is contingent on changes or waivers to state statutes which bar the practice known as “horizontal drilling.” Horizontal drilling allows companies to dig into the surface and run wells 3,000 to 4,000 feet in one direction in search of natural gas. Typical vertical drilling won’t work in Lee County’s shallow basin, Roberts said. “I certainly think it has a chance of working with the new technology being applied,” Roberts said. “It certainly

deserves a chance to work.” Roberts said the state’s current laws, which were written decades ago, preclude horizontal drilling in most cases. The regulations are “archaic” for today’s times, he said. Condlin said locals will need to know how to handle it if the state laws are altered. “If it gets changed, this will open the floodgates,” she said. According to Roberts, Lee County has ingredients, such as carbon-rich, fractured shale formations underground, that point the way to possible natural gas stores. “If this were to work, you can’t imagine the economic boost it would bring to this county,” he said. Condlin said Cooperative Extension will film the workshop and post the presentations on its Website by the end of the week for those who are squeezed out. The N.C. Cooperative Extension’s Website is located at lee.ces. For more information about the workshop, contact Cooperative Extension at 919-775-5624.

And the “You lie!” congressman, Republican Joe Wilson, is up for re-election this year … same as Etheridge. Etheridge’s opponent, Republican Renee Ellmers, has seen an upswing in popularity and campaign funds since Monday. Her Facebook site reports more than 1,000 new “fans” in the past few days, and after releasing a comment condemning Etheridge’s actions Monday, Ellmers went a step further Tuesday with her own video, again connecting Etheridge’s confrontation with his re-electability. Whether or not this wave will carry her to a November win remains to be seen. Considering Etheridge has breezed by his GOP opponents in recent elections – the past two times defeating Dan Mansell handily – it may take a few more videos or a Gov. Mark Sanford-esque mistake to unseat the Lillington tobacco farmer. Keep in mind, the Etheridge video isn’t without a bit of controversy on the “other side.” The students – one whose face is blurred and the other behind the camera – have yet to be identified. According to their words on the video, they are “students working on a

project.” What school they’re from and what project they’re working on remains to be told. That bit of uncertainty is enough for Democrats – and Etheridge fans – to question the validity of the video. My intention isn’t to come off sounding like an Etheridge apologist. Regardless of who the “students” were or why they asked the relatively harmless question, he shouldn’t have reacted as he did. His apology – which has come before all the facts have been released (although AFTER the release of the tape) – is a testament that even he realizes he messed up. His constituents have the right to question his actions, and they have a right to expect more than a “I’ve had a bad day” answer. We expect our politicians to take the heat for their votes and their actions, and when that elected official loses it, even for a moment, it’s reason for pause. If Bob Etheridge didn’t realize he lived in the YouTube age before, he knows it now. This video may not be enough to derail his re-election, but it is enough for voters to take a closer look at him.

Mayor Pro Tem Mike Stone and Councilman Charles Taylor had called for the tax decreases, arguing the city’s budget had room for cuts and that Sanford officials had built up a healthy $10 million fund balance, or savings account, over the years. “We just padded our budget by $200,000,” Taylor said after Tuesday’s vote. Tuesday’s final budget included the addition of $2,400 for a city intern, $2,458 for improving local geographic data systems and $15,000 for what Hegwer described in a memo as a “tourism marketing initiative.” A majority of the seven council members — Co-

city needs to maintain its tax rate for continued upkeep on the city and in preparation for coming years where state lawmakers might cut local funding. But opponents, particularly Stone, say locals are reeling from the recession-battered economy and are in need of a lifeline in the form of a tax decrease. “The city has done tremendously well,” Stone said. “It’s our citizens that are hurting. We have to understand their pain.” Stone promised it would not be difficult to find $206,000 to cut from the budget in order to speed a tax decrease. Gaskins, while a critic of the budget, didn’t back Stone’s motion for a tax decrease because he said the city plans to spend up to $907,000 on past debts, which would clear the way for future tax cuts. A chief component of the budget was spending on local nonprofits. Officials squabbled for weeks over the best way to chip in with area charities after the ailing Boys and Girls Clubs of Sanford/ Lee County made a plea for funds. Tuesday’s budget included $20,000 for

Sanford’s downtown Temple Theatre, $3,000 to the Lee County Arts Council, $3,000 to the Railroad House Association and a contribution to the Boys and Girls Clubs that matches whatever Lee County commissioners agree to funnel to the organization. While county commissioners have yet to pass a final budget, commissioners have agreed to include $20,000 in spending for the Boys and Girls Clubs. Tuesday’s vote prompted immediate indignation from opponents of the spending plan, including Taylor, who blasted council members for not making cuts. “Some people don’t ever want to work on the budget,” Taylor said. “They don’t want to open up their books.” Supporters of the spending package, however, have said in recent weeks that the city has built up healthy savings through shrewd financial wrangling, and that opponents were not counting on the potential surprise scenarios and emergencies that require contingency spending be included in the budget.

the elderly and disabled population, it actually aims to serve a larger demographic and plans to reach out more to the Hispanic community in particular. “Certainly (the elderly and disabled) are a core group of riders, but we want to make sure the message is out there that it’s a service for everyone who needs it,” Whitehurst said. Alice Beardslee of Broadway said she thinks COLTS is a good service to have, but she feels it focuses a bit too much on Sanford and not enough on Broadway. She said though she’s seen growth in Broadway’s retirement community, many of the people she knows aren’t familiar with COLTS. “If people aren’t aware of what’s offered now, they won’t be aware of what could be offered in the future,” Beardslee said. Beardslee and Chester both suggested posting flyers on community bulletin boards, in stores and at the Chamber of Commerce as a means of marketing COLTS to the broader Lee County community. Some attendees expressed frustration that COLTS doesn’t run on weekends, saying they have had to decline weekend shifts at work because they don’t have another mode of transportation. Others said they don’t like that passengers have to reserve a ride 48 hours in advance rather than calling the day they need a

ride. Sidney Morgan, Lee County transportation coordinator, said the 48-hour requirement is in place because drivers need a manifest to stay on schedule. Debbie Davidson, executive director of Lee County senior services, said while COLTS would love to accommodate everyone, the vans can’t go anywhere any time like a taxi cab. “It’s not that we don’t want to meet everyone’s needs,” Davidson said. “It’s that the way we’re governed, we just can’t.” Davidson said COLTS’ biggest frustration is a lack of funding, a sentiment Dale Olbrich, executive director of the Chatham Transit Network, said he can sympathize with. “The key with transportation is that you have to have a funding source to provide transportation,” Olbrich said. CTN is also developing a new five-year plan. Olbrich said CTN is always looking for grant opportunities to increase funding, and the network will offer similar public input sessions as they develop the plan. After the COLTS workshops, the consultants from Kimley-Horn and Associates will review the participants’ input and help COLTS develop ways to improve service in a cost-effective way. The plan will be presented to the County Commissioners in late October or early November. “I really hope that we have a plan in place that is feasible to advance and get people where they need to go,” Davidson said.

STATE BRIEFS Ex-Marine gets 100 months for threatening Obama

WILMINGTON (AP) — A federal judge has sentenced a former Marine based in North Carolina to 100 months in federal prison for threatening President Barack Obama. The U.S. Attorney in Raleigh said in a news release that 20-year-old Kody Brittingham was sentenced Monday. Brittingham was charged with making threats against the president-elect. The Naval Criminal Investigative Service found a map of the Capitol, Internet searches for “Inauguration Day” and photos in Brittingham’s barracks locker. Brittingham was administratively separated from the Marine Corps following a December 2008 arrest on a charge of attempted armed robbery at a Jacksonville hotel. The U.S. attorney says Brittingham’s sentence in the threat case included time related to the armedrobbery.

DuPont agrees to $59K settlement over pollution

KINSTON (AP) — Industrial giant DuPont has agreed to pay a $59,000 penalty for mercury discharges at a North Carolina plant. The federal Environmental Protection Agency said Tuesday the settlement relates to the company’s polymer fiber manufacturing facility in Kinston. The EPA says discharges at the plant exceeded permitted levels of mercury for eight months between September 2008 and March 2009.

A DuPont spokesman says the company inherited the problem from the site’s previous owner and worked to fix it when it was discovered. Stan Meiburg is the EPA’s acting administrator for the region that includes North Carolina. Meiburg says the settlement underscores the importance of the federal permitting process in protecting the water supply from dangerous chemicals like mercury.

Fort Bragg general returns from Afghanistan FORT BRAGG (AP) — The commanding general of the 82nd Airborne Division has returned to his North Carolina base after 14 months in eastern Afghanistan. Maj. Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti and about 20 paratroopers from the 82nd arrived Tuesday morning at Pope Air Force Base. Scaparrotti commanded the coalition task force in charge of 14 provinces near the Afghan border with Pakistan. The task force was made up of 30,000 service members from 13 different countries. Hundreds of paratroopers from the headquarters returned to Fort Bragg last week. The 82nd deployed to Afghanistan in June 2009. The unit’s deployment was extended about 50 days to allow soldiers with the 101st Airborne Division Headquarters a full year at home.

‘Crafty’ gorilla prompts N.C. Zoo to review exhibit ASHEBORO (AP) — The North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro has temporarily closed

its gorilla exhibit after one of the apes nearly made a break for it. Zoo spokesman Tom Gillespie says a branch from a tree fell into the exhibit Sunday. One female gorilla tried to use the branch as a ladder to climb out of the exhibit, but she didn’t make it. The exhibit remained closed Tuesday as staff horticulturists checked nearby trees for loose limbs. Zoo officials think the branch came down after being weakened by a storm Saturday.

Firm headed by ex-NC lawmaker under investigation RALEIGH (AP) — The head of the North Carolina Elections Board says an engineering and surveying firm headed by a former state lawmaker is under investigation. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Tuesday that elections board chairman Larry Leake says the firm, Hobbs, Upchurch and Associates of Southern Pines, is being investigated as part of an examination of improper campaign contributions. Fred Hobbs was a Democratic state senator in the mid-1990s and was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 2004. Hobbs has said previously the company is cooperating. The firm’s lawyer, Michael Wiesel, says no one from the firm will talk about the investigation until it is finished. The newspaper reports state Republican Party leaders previously questioned donations by employees of Hobbs, Upchurch.


Army Special Forces changing command By KEVIN MAURER Associated Press Writer

FORT BRAGG (AP) — The man who oversaw the start of the largest expansion of the Army’s Special Forces in history is leaving the command as the war in Afghanistan becomes more deadly and the outcome is unclear. Maj. Gen. Michael Repass will turn over command of about 10,000 Special Forces soldiers, also known as Green Berets, to Brig. Gen. Ed Reeder in July as part of a normal rotation of commanders. Repass’ two-year oversight has included the shift from Iraq to Afghanistan. In the last few months, the Taliban has ramped up attacks against troops. So far this month, 44 international forces have been killed in Afghanistan, 27 of them American, putting June on pace to be one of the deadliest months in 2010. The situation in southern Afghanistan is murky, prompting lawmakers to call Gen. David H. Petraeus, head of the Central Command, to Capitol Hill this week to discuss the slow progress of NATO offensives in Helmand and Kandahar. “We’ve got two years to turn things around in Afghanistan,” said Repass, who is moving to Germany to become commander of Special Operations Command

Europe. “That is the political patience that is out there.” U.S. reliance on Special Operations forces has been steadily on the rise since the 2001 terrorist attacks. Repass’s term included managing the start of a plan to add more than 2,000 soldiers by 2013. That will also allow Special Forces members to spend more time at home between deployments. Repass said Special Forces are operating in 47 countries, including Afghanistan. His teams are focused on the “disconnected world,” meaning countries in Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. “We don’t go to places where there is a highly developed economy and everybody is getting along nicely,” Repass said. Nowhere is that more true than Afghanistan, where his units are in high demand because they are trained to work closely with local leaders to undermine the Taliban insurgency. Special Forces teams are playing an important role in President Barack Obama’s revamped strategy to surge troops into Afghanistan and partner with the Afghans to destroy the Taliban and build a stable government. A prime example is the Village Stability Operations program. Special Forces units in Afghanistan are ex-

panding the program of putting units in rural villages to make it harder for Taliban and other insurgent groups to find safe haven. The villages get assistance to improve infrastructure development, governance, and security that they can take back to their village. Col. Don Bolduc, commander of the combined joint special operations task force in Afghanistan, told the Associated Press last month that the program has expanded to almost 10 villages in the southern, eastern and western provinces of Afghanistan since September. “The enemy recognizes that this is a serious threat to them,” Bolduc said. “This is about mobilizing the populace.” Repass said Special Forces has done village stability work under different names in the past. He said the program will work well at the local level, but connecting the villages to the central government will take time. “I think it is reasonable to say that there is a lot of room for improvement in Afghanistan now that we’re resourcing it and making it the priority mission,” Repass said. “I regret leaving it at the time I am leaving because I see unfinished business out there.”

House tries hand at freeing 911 fees

Perdue: N.C. ready on off chance oil hits East coast

By GARY D. ROBERTSON Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH — Just like the pocket change saved daily in a jar, local emergency call centers have accumulated tens of millions of dollars from a charge inside every phone bill in North Carolina for their own dream purchases. The trouble is, according to local government officials and emergency response leaders, state law restricts too tightly what local 911 centers can purchase using the 70-cent-per month subscriber fee placed on each landline and wireless phone in the state. The 911 service fee money can be used for phone equipment and system hardware, but not for equipment to dispatch emergency officials to the scene or office furniture. “Citizens expect when they pick up the phone to call 911 that someone’s going to show up at their door to help them,� said Kevin Leonard, a lobbyist for the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners. “The current statute does not that support that sort of policy.� But with more questions raised about whether the fee is being wasted — more than $91 million sat in 125 local 911 center accounts a year ago — the General Assembly is poised to change the service fee law for

the second time in four years. They hope it will lower cash balances held by the centers in part by expanding the kinds of projects on which the funds can be spent. As part of a compromise recommended by a House committee last week, 911 centers would get the flexibility the counties want, but they’ll have to give up some things in return. A state panel would change how the money is distributed to more closely follow the population the center covers and past expenses. Proceeds also could be used for statewide projects, and local centers would be required to meet operating standards in order to qualify for their share of funds. “We’re all paying the same rate, so we should all be receiving the same level of service,� said Richard Taylor, executive director of the North Carolina 911 Board, which distributes the fees collected by phone companies to 911 centers and monitors their use. A phone fee for 911 expenses has been around for more than 20 years. Each local government used to decide how much to charge landline phone subscribers, which varied from 25 cents to $3.50 per month. A statewide fee on wireless users also was collected. Most of the money went to 911 centers to build an “enhanced 911� system where emer-

gency operators receive on-screen maps of the caller’s location and the closest emergency responder available. Local emergency service officials balked at an effort several years ago to end the landline fees, arguing they needed a steady source of money to pay for ever-improving technology. Today, better electronic mapping is needed to locate wireless customers and people who call for help with a phone called over their Internet service or broadband connection, Taylor said. A 2007 law consolidated the wireless and landline programs and set a statewide fee capped at 70 cents per month for any phone. But the statewide revenue was distributed at largely the same rates the local governments had set before the law. The use of the funds remained limited and essentially “only pays for the receipt of the phone call,� Leonard said. So the money in local accounts remained unused. Twenty-five centers had at least $1 million in cash on hand as of June 30, 2009, led by Charlotte-Mecklenburg with $5.6 million, according to state 911 Board data. The House created a committee that met earlier this year to look at how to satisfy local governments, 911 center managers and the telecommunications companies

that must collect the fee — and receive the grief of customers who complain about another fine-print fee on their bill. Rep. Angela Bryant, D-Nash, the committee’s chairwoman, said phone companies wanted more assurances that the fees collected were actually based on the costs the 911 centers incurred. So the compromise would direct the state 911 Board to create a new distribution formula. Eligible purchases would be expanded to include any equipment located within the building where the 911 center is located and half of the cash balances held by each center could be used before mid-2012 for “public safety needs.� Jerry Boggs, Catawba County’s 911 administrator, said the changes could help use the fee receipts to pay for equipment and furniture for a new building where the county’s operators take 300,000 calls annually. “To have this law changed and to have some of the funds available, it’s a great big avenue for us,� Boggs said. Taylor said the state 911 Board had already agreed in February to reduce the fee to 60 cents per phone starting July 1 because the panel agreed it was collecting too much money. Bryant said she doesn’t know whether the bill would help the board reduce the fee further in the years ahead. “We are trying to be good stewards of everyone’s money,� Taylor said.

RALEIGH — Gov. Beverly Perdue told legislative and local government leaders Tuesday that North Carolina is prepared in the event that any oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico defies the odds and reaches its coastline. At a briefing about the state’s emergency management response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Perdue assured officials that the state is fully prepared in the rare event that spilled oil hitches a ride on ocean currents and makes its way up the Eastern seaboard. “If the loop current does catch hold of the spill, then North Carolina is prepared to deal with whatever comes our way,� Perdue said. “We have no reason to believe that it will be anything at all like we’re seeing on television now in the Gulf Coast states.� A computer model released a few weeks ago by the National Center for Atmospheric Research showed that oil leaking from the blown-out well off Louisiana could enter the Gulf’s loop current and the Gulf Stream and reach North Carolina shores by early next month. Perdue and other state officials said that if oil did reach the state it would probably be in the form of

tar balls. The state has had an oil response plan in place since the Exxon Valdez spill in the late 80s, said Gerald Rudisill, chief deputy secret division is to provide Perdue with an updated response plan by June 21. “We have not been sitting and waiting around for the oil spill to come our way,� Rudisill said. Attendees were briefed on the Gulf cleanup efforts by the U.S. Coast Guard and told about the area contingency plan in North Carolina that establishes a command structure and booming strategies in case of an oil disaster. Another issue discussed was coastal tourism. There hasn’t been a mass cancellation of hotel rooms due to the spill, said Lynn Minges, assistant secretary for tourism marketing and global branding for the N.C. Department of Commerce. “Since the chances are so slim that we will be impacted, we are optimistic that it will be a strong season for summer travel,� Minges said. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day about $1.4 billion is spent by visitors to the state’s coastal region, she said. “We don’t want it to affect tourism,� said Jimmy Tate, the county commissioner for Pender County, home to Surf City and Topsail Beach.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;People in the border region should expect more aftershocks and earthquakes in general in future years,â&#x20AC;? said seismologist Egill Hauksson of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The earthquake history of the region is very rich.â&#x20AC;? A similar-sized earthquake in 1992 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the magnitude7.3 Landers quake that rattled the Mojave Desert northeast of Los Angeles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has unleashed about 10,000 aftershocks in a sequence that continues today. Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quake was the largest aftershock yet from the Easter shaker. Its epicenter was 85 miles east of San Diego, near the U.S.-Mexico border.


Colo. man went on solo mission to kill bin Laden

DENVER (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An American man has been detained in the mountains of Pakistan after authorities found him carrying a sword, pistol and night-vision goggles on a solo mission to hunt down and kill Osama bin Laden. Friends and family say construction worker Gary Brooks Faulkner is a devout, good-humored Christian who was â&#x20AC;&#x153;on a missionâ&#x20AC;? to kill or capture Osama. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of kids grow up and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I want to be Rambo,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; you know? Well, he is,â&#x20AC;? said Faulknerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, Scott Faulkner, 43. He said his brother made five previous trips to Pakistan. The 50-year-old Faulkner, who has a lengthy arrest record and served time in Colorado prisons, arrived June 3 in the town of Bumburate and stayed in a hotel there. He was assigned a police guard, as is common for foreigners visiting remote parts of Pakistan. When he checked out without informing police, officers began looking for him, according to the top police officer in the Chitral region, Mumtaz Ahmad Khan. Faulkner was found late Sunday in a forest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We initially laughed when he told us that he wanted to kill Osama bin Laden,â&#x20AC;? Khan said. But when officers seized the weapons and night-vision equipment, â&#x20AC;&#x153;our suspicion grew.â&#x20AC;? He said the American was trying to cross into the nearby Afghan region of Nuristan. Chitral and Nuristan are among several rumored hiding places for bin Laden along the mountainous border between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Pakistanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s military and intelligence establishment generally deny the possibility that bin Laden is hiding somewhere along the Pakistan-Afghan border, as Western intelligence agencies believe. Faulknerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, Deanna M. Faulkner of Grand

This May 30, 2010, picture provided by Dr. Scott Faulkner shows his brother Gary Brooks Faulkner at the Denver International Airport en route to Pakistan. Junction, Colo., said her brother suffers from kidney disease that has left him with only 9 percent kidney function. But she told The Associated Press that she did not think his illness was his motivation to go to Pakistan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe this was, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m dying, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do a hurrah thing,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she said. Scott Faulkner said his brother was very religious and carried a Bible with him at all times but wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t planning to proselytize. Scott Faulkner dropped his brother off at Denverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s airport May 30, and the two discussed the possibility Faulkner would not return alive from his search of bin Laden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He talked about why he was so passionateâ&#x20AC;? to find bin Laden, Scott Faulkner recalled, adding that his brother retained vivid memories of the Sept. 11 attacks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has not forgotten.â&#x20AC;? But Scott Faulkner insisted his brother was on a rational mission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as normal as you I,â&#x20AC;? Scott Faulkner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just very passionate, and, as a Christian, he felt, when Osama mocked this country after 9/11, and it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like the military was doing enough, it became his passion, his mission, to track down Osama, and kill him, or bring him back alive.â&#x20AC;? Scott Faulkner said his brother sold all his tools to finance his trip and was prepared to die in Pakistan. He also said his brother

took no weapons and had a valid visa for Pakistan. Scott Faulkner hoped his brother wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be charged with a crime. On Tuesday, Gary Faulkner was being questioned by intelligence officials in Peshawar, Pakistanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main northwestern city. He has not been charged with any wrongdoing. Khan said Faulkner told investigators he was angry after the Sept. 11 attacks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Osama is responsible for bloodshed in the world, and I want to kill him,â&#x20AC;? Khan quoted him as saying. Asked why he thought he had a chance of tracing bin Laden, Faulkner replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;God is with me, and I am confident I will be successful in killing him,â&#x20AC;? Khan said. He said police confiscated a small amount of hashish, enough for a single joint, from Faulkner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m worried about him,â&#x20AC;? his sister said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m worried that in Pakistan, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give him his dialysis. And if he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in serious trouble.â&#x20AC;? Bin laden, who is also reported to have kidney problems, has evaded a massive manhunt since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, which he is accused of masterminding along with other attacks. The federal government has offered a bounty of $25 million for information leading to his capture.

Iowa lawmaker says Obama favors blacks over whites WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Democrats on Tuesday denounced an Iowa Republican congressman who says President Barack Obama favors blacks over whites, and a GOP candidate from Colorado canceled a fundraiser the Iowan was to keynote. Rep. Steve King, known for sometimes incendiary remarks about immigration, Abu Ghraib and other issues, criticized Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, who also is black, in an interview Monday on G. Gordon Liddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nationally syndicated radio talk show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m offended by Eric Holder and the president also, their posture,â&#x20AC;? said King, 61. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looks like Eric Holder said that white people in America are cowards when it comes to race.â&#x20AC;? King continued: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The president has demonstrated that he has a default mechanism in him that breaks down the side of race on the side that favors the black person in the case of professor Gates and officer Crowley.â&#x20AC;? He was alluding to last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incident in which Obama commented on a white police officerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrest of a black professor from Harvard University.

Texas judge orders DNA test decade after execution DALLAS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For the second time in a year, the guilt of an inmate executed in Texas is in doubt after a judge ordered DNA testing

on a strand of hair that was the only physical evidence linking a man to the murder for which he was killed 10 years ago. Judge Paul C. Murphy ordered testing done on a 1inch-long strand that helped prosecutors convict Claude Jones of capital murder in the 1989 shooting death of liquor store owner Allen Hilzendager near Point Blank, about 75 miles north of Houston. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a DNA test that could prove someone was wrongly executed,â&#x20AC;? said Barry Scheck, the co-director of the Innocence Project, a New York-based legal center that helped ensure the preservation of the strand of hair. Jones, a career criminal and paroled murderer, always insisted he was innocent. He died in 2000, the last of 40 inmates executed in Texas that year and the last of 152 inmates put to death during former President George W. Bushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time as governor.

Fed adopts rules to protect credit card customers WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Federal Reserve adopted new rules Tuesday aimed at protecting credit card customers from getting socked by lofty late payment charges and other penalty fees. The rules respond to public and congressional outrage over practices by credit card companies. They bar credit card companies from charging a penalty fee of more than $25 for paying a bill late. They prohibit credit card companies from charging penalty fees that are higher than the dollar amount associated with the customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s violation. They also ban so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;inactivityâ&#x20AC;? fees when customers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the account to make new purchases and they prevent multiple penalty fees on a single late payment. The rules take effect on Aug. 22.

Border jolt biggest aftershock from Easter quake LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; To the crowd of baseball fans cheering at San Diegoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Petco Park, the jolt in the eighth inning came as a surprise. But for scientists, Monday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magnitude-5.7 earthquake was the kind of aftershock they expected from the deadly magnitude7.2 Easter Sunday quake centered in Baja California two months earlier. Major shakers tend to produce aftershocks for months and sometimes years, scientists say.

10A / Wednesday, June 16, 2010 / The Sanford Herald OBAMA ADDRESSES NATION


‘We will make BP pay’

WASHINGTON (AP) — Dedicating new urgency to the Gulf oil spill, President Barack Obama accused BP of “recklessness” in the first Oval Office address of his presidency Tuesday night and swore not to rest until the company has paid for the damage it has caused to lives, businesses and shorelines. He announced that he had asked former Mississippi Gov. Ray Mabus to develop a long-term Gulf Coast Restoration Plan — to be funded by BP PLC — in concert with local states, communities, fishermen, conservationists and residents “as soon as possible.” Obama did not detail what this plan should include or how much it might cost, a price sure to be in the billions of dollars. Whatever the bottom line, he declared to his prime-time television audience, “We will make BP pay.” Still, eight weeks into the crisis, oil continues to gush from the broken wellhead, millions of gallons a day, and Obama has been powerless to stem the leak. The sad episode has raised doubts about his leadership and his administration’s response to what Obama has called the nation’s worst environmental disaster. A new Associated PressGfK poll shows for the first time a majority of Americans disapproving of his handling of the situation. A government panel of scientists said earlier Tuesday that the undersea well is leaking even more

Scientists: ruptured well is leaking up to 2.52M gallons a day NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Scientists provided a new estimate for the amount of oil gushing from a ruptured well in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday that indicates it could be worse than previously thought. A government panel of scientists said that the ruptured well is leaking between 1.47 million and 2.52 million gallons a day of oil. That is an increase over previous estimates that put the maximum size of the spill at 2.1 million gallons per day. “This estimate brings together several scientific methodologies and the latest information from the sea floor, and represents a significant step forward in our effort to put a number on the oil that is escaping from BP’s well,” Energy Secretary Steven Chu said in a statement. The latest numbers reflect an increase in the flow that scientists believe happened after undersea robots earlier this month cut off a kinked pipe near the sea floor that was believed to be restricting the flow of oil, just as a bend in a garden hose reduces water flow. BP officials has estimated that cutting the kinked pipe likely increased the flow by up 20 percent.

The total spilled so far could be as much as 116 million gallons. BP has had only modest success so far in stemming the flood of oil, but Obama said that within weeks “these efforts should capture up to 90 percent of the oil leaking out of the well.” Later in the summer, he said, the company should finish drilling a relief well to stop the leak completely. Much of the president’s speech was devoted to a recitation of steps his administration has already taken — “from the very beginning,” he said — to clean the oil, help the distraught people of the Gulf and prevent another environmental crisis. “We will fight this spill

with everything we’ve got for as long it takes,” Obama said. Likening that process to a long epidemic instead of a single crushing disaster like an earthquake or hurricane, he said the nation could be tied up with the oil and its aftermath for months “and even years.” Looking ahead to his showdown Wednesday morning with BP executives, Obama said he would “inform” them that the company must set aside whatever resources are required to make whole all local residents and businesses hurt by the spill and to repair the immense ecological damage wrought by the oil. That meeting was to be followed by a presidential statement — his fourth planned remarks on the spill in three days. Later in the week, BP leaders take

the Washington hot seat again, appearing before more congressional hearings. However, Obama said that the new Gulf restoration plan would go beyond just repairing the effects of the crude on a unique, teeming ecology that was already battered by the 2005 hurricanes Katrina and Rita. “We must make a commitment to the Gulf Coast that goes beyond responding to the crisis of the moment,” the president said. Obama also urged the nation and Congress to get behind his goal of passing sweeping energy and climate change legislation, a key domestic priority of his presidency that had become a long shot. Though Obama supports placing a price on heat-trapping carbon emissions, he did not directly state that.

BP: Containment efforts resume after ship fire HOUSTON (AP) — A drill ship resumed siphoning off oil gushing from a blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday after a bolt of lightning struck the vessel and ignited a fire that halted containment efforts, the company said.

BP PLC spokesman Bill Salvin told The Associated Press that the drill ship called the Discoverer Enterprise resumed processing oil Tuesday afternoon, about five hours after the fire caused an emergency shutdown. Engineers on the ship have been siphoning about 630,000 gallons of oil a day through a cap on top of the well. He said there was no damage reported to the containment cap, and the Coast Guard approved BP restarting the system.

Dissatisfaction with Obama mirrors Bush on Katrina WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans have become just as dissatisfied with President Barack Obama’s work on the Gulf oil spill as they were with his predecessor’s handling of Hurricane Katrina, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll released Tuesday. Even so, the catastrophe appears not to have taken a toll on how Americans view the president overall. Obama’s approval rating remained steady in the poll and he is more popular than President George W. Bush was two months after the hurricane. Bush alone took the hit in public perceptions. In the spill, much anger is steered at BP, and the poll suggests Americans do not feel quite the sense of shame that afflicted them in the 2005 hurricane aftermath. Still, Obama and his administration have struggled to contain the environmental disaster in the Gulf and now, it seems, to convince people that the government is acting effectively. Most Americans are angry about the government’s slow response, the poll finds, with 54 percent saying they had strong feelings about the bureaucracy’s reaction.

CFTC approves box-office futures risk. The agency’s vote was 3-2. Two CFTC commissioners, Democrat Bart Chilton and Republican Jill Sommers, voted against approving the contracts for the Trend Exchange. “Popcorn prediction markets would serve no national public interest” and don’t meet the law’s requirements on how commodities are defined, Chilton said in a statement. Chilton said he also was troubled by whether the new futures trading would provide a legitimate way for the movie industry to hedge against risk, since the agency’s approval limits the use of the new contracts by movie studios. Allowing future box-office receipts to be traded like crude oil or pork bellies would give people who finance movies a way to make money even when a film doesn’t. It also could be used for speculation. Trading would be based on the amount of money a movie takes in during its opening weekend. The exchange would set the initial odds for contracts, but those odds would change based on bidding of investors. An investor who buys a contract with longer odds takes on greater risk and the potential to earn more money.

By MARCY GORDON AP Business Writer

WASHINGTON — Soon playing in a theater online: trading of future box-office receipts for movies on a new exchange, following approval by federal regulators. Unless, that is, Hollywood studios get their way and Senate legislation to ban the box-office futures becomes law. A divided Commodity Futures Trading Commission on Monday approved the proposed futures contracts for the new Trend Exchange. That means the movie futures trading can proceed; it is expected to begin sometime in the third quarter. The first proposed contract for the exchange is for opening-weekend receipts for “Takers,” being released Aug. 20. Matt Dillon plays a cop who takes on a team of expert bank robbers. Major movie studios strongly oppose the idea. They say rival studios could sabotage films by betting against them. In giving its approval, the CFTC said it found that box-office receipts fit the law’s definition of a commodity, that the Trend Exchange contracts aren’t “readily susceptible” to manipulation, and they provide a way of managing

For example, an investor thinks a movie will make at least $75 million in its first weekend. The exchange finds an investor who thinks the movie will fall short of that mark and the two investors enter the contract together. When the movie receipts come in, the one who is correct gets a percentage on top of his investment based on the odds received. The other loses his investment. The CFTC previously approved the establishment of the Trend Exchange and the Cantor Futures Exchange. The proposed futures contracts, establishing rules for trading, have now gained the agency’s approval for the Trend Exchange. For the Cantor exchange, the deadline for approving the contracts is June 28. Supporters, led by investor groups that put up the money to make films, say the concept would help generate new capital for the movie industry. A tougher economy has made it harder to finance films and trading futures on box-office receipts would help offset risk. “We are pleased that the staff of the CFTC and a majority of the commissioners recognized the legitimate economic risk-management benefits

that these products will provide to the entertainment industry,” Robert Swagger, CEO of the Trend Exchange, said in a statement. Opponents, led by big Hollywood studios, warn that complex trading brought down the housing market and this idea could do the same to the movie industry. In Congress, the Senate version of the financial regulatory overhaul would ban futures trading on movie revenues. It’s unclear if that ban will survive House-Senate negotiations on the final legislation. The studios’ lobbying group, the Motion Picture Association of America, urged Congress Monday to put the ban in the final bill that will be signed by President Barack Obama. “It is unfortunate that the CFTC has now given the go-ahead to a new gambling platform that could be plagued by financial irregularities and manipulation,” MPAA President and interim CEO Robert Pisano said in a statement. The new box-office contracts “pose real possible economic damage to an industry that employs over 2.4 million men and women working in virtually every state in the country,” he said.

Miley Cyrus: ‘I’m not trying to be slutty’

White House gate crasher lands TV role

LONDON (AP) — Miley Cyrus won’t be told what she should wear or what she should sing about. The 17year-old is releasing new album, “Can’t Be Tamed,” and is doing it her Cyrus way, even though some say she is going to too far for her age. “I’m not trying to be ’slutty,”’ said Cyrus in a recent interview. “I’m not trying to be like, go to the club and get a bunch of guys ... What I’m trying to do is to make a point with my record and look consistent, in the way my record sounds and the way I dress.” What she wears has been put under the spotlight recently. Some thought the video for “Can’t Be Tamed” was too provocative, and others have criticized her for revealing too much skin in her outfits. Cyrus admits to being partial to shorts and hot pants. But she sees nothing wrong with flashing her legs. “I’m really comfortable with my body, I work really hard to be fit and to know that I can wear whatever makes me most comfortable. I feel more comfortable dressing with a little less, which is just how I’ve always been,” she said. “Now I’m able to do that a little more freely and, also, I’ve just grown up to be this way too. It’s not like this was me five years ago. It’s me now, presently.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Executives at the Bravo network took a long time deciding whether to go ahead with its “Real Housewives” series based in Washington after one of its stars crashed President Barack Obama’s first state dinner, its programming chief said. The network said Tuesday it was going ahead with the series featuring Michaele Salahi, starting Aug. 5 (9 p.m. EDT). Bravo was nearly at the end of filming the latest installment of its “Real Housewives” franchise last November when Salahi and her husband, Tareq, talked their way into the White House affair. The embarrassment forced the White House to tighten security restrictions.

Police: 2nd Sheen vehicle taken, driven over cliff LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charlie Sheen is having car trouble again. For the second time in five months, a Mercedes Benz belonging to the actor has been found down a cliff near his Sherman Oaks home. Los Angeles police Officer Norma Eisenman says the 2010 Mercedes was found after authorities received a report of a car driving over a cliff on Mulholland Drive early Tuesday. She says officers checked the Mercedes’ plates and confirmed it belonged to the actor. Eisenman says someone apparently took the vehicle from Sheen’s driveway, where it had been parked Monday afternoon.

Mandel searches for Tiny Tim redux on talent show LOS ANGELES (AP) — Howie Mandel contends there’s a Tiny Tim-sized void in entertainment today, and he aims to fill it as a judge on “America’s Got Talent.” Joining the NBC show this season is allowing the 54-year-old comedian to exercise his taste, which he cheerfully acknowledges embraces the good, the bad and the weird. “As much as I love seeing somebody undiscovered and unique, there’s something to be said for the insanity and the train wreck. I’m mesmerized by something I don’t understand because it looks like it’s bad,” he said. “I’m just as taken by that as I am brilliance.” “America’s Got Talent,” in its fifth season, is hosted by Nick Cannon and includes Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan on the judging panel with Mandel. The show airs 9 p.m. EDT Tuesday and Wednesday.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — North Korea warned Tuesday that its military forces will respond if the U.N. Security Council questions or condemns the country over the sinking of a South Korean navy ship, which it vehemently denies. At a rare news conference, North Korea’s U.N. Ambassador Sin Son Ho demanded that a military investigation team from North Korea be permitted to go to the site of the sinking to verify the result of a South Korean probe “in an objective and scientific way,” which the South has refused to allow. He said there is “a touch and go situation that a war may break out any time ... on the Korean peninsula due to the reckless military maneuvers of South Korea,” which has accused the North of torpedoing the ship and is seeking U.N. action to punish it. Sin called the accusation against North Korea “a farce concocted by the U.S.

Bloody Sunday report blames British soldiers fully LONDONDERRY, Northern Ireland (AP) — Relatives of 13 Catholic demonstrators shot to death by British troops on Northern Ireland’s Bloody Sunday cried tears of joy Tuesday as an epic fact-finding probe ruled that their loved ones were innocent and the soldiers entirely to blame for the 1972 slaughter. The investigation took 12 years and nearly 200 million pounds ($290 million), but the victims’ families and the British, Irish and U.S. governments welcomed the findings as priceless to heal one of the gaping wounds left from Northern Ireland’s four-decade conflict that left 3,700 dead. Thousands of residents

of Londonderry — a predominantly Catholic city long synonymous with Britain’s major mass killing from the Northern Ireland conflict — gathered outside the city hall to watch the verdict come in, followed by a lengthy apology from Prime Minister David Cameron in London that moved many locals long distrustful of British leaders.

5 NATO troops, Afghan official die as attacks rise KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Five NATO troops including one American died Tuesday, continuing a grim trend that could make June among the deadliest months of the nearly 9-year-old Afghan war. Five Afghan policemen and a district governor were also killed Tuesday in separate fighting across the country, which has seen an uptick in attacks by insurgents in response to increased offensives by the international coalition. U.S. officials insisted the Afghan campaign is on track, although they concede that pacifying the insurgent-riddled south will take longer than expected.

AMONG THE MISSING “Hypodontia” involves an absence of six teeth or less (excluding the third molars, or “wisdom teeth”) due to their failure to develop. As one might imagine, missing this many teeth presents a number of potential problems. The frequency of hypodontia, which is believed to be caused by genetic or environmental factors during development, may be as high as ten percent of the human population. Up to 50 percent of children with missing primary (“baby”) teeth will go on to have missing permanent teeth. The teeth most likely to be missing are the upper lateral incisors and both top and bottom second premolars. The sooner this condition is diagnosed and orthodontic treatment started, the better. For patients with hypodontia, orthodontic treatment can be used to close spaces between adjacent teeth. If you or your child has missing teeth, we at SANDHILLS ORTHODONTICS can recommend the most effective treatment plan. We utilize the latest in computer technology, including digital imaging and advanced computer graphics, to ensure that our patients receive the most effective care possible. Please call us today at (919) 718-9188 to make an appointment for a free consultation. Our office is located at 1129 Carthage St. Committed to helping you achieve the smile you deserve – a healthy, beautiful one! P.S. Hypodontia has been associated with low birth weight, multiple births, and rubella virus infection.

Ariz. lawmaker takes aim at automatic citizenship By MICHELLE PRICE Associated Press Writer

PHOENIX — Emboldened by passage of the nation’s toughest law against illegal immigration, the Arizona politician who sponsored the measure now wants to deny U.S. citizenship to children born in this country to undocumented parents. Legal scholars laugh out loud at Republican state Sen. Russell Pearce’s proposal and warn that it would be blatantly unconstitutional, since the 14th Amendment guarantees citizenship to anyone born in the U.S. But Pearce brushes aside such concerns. And given the charged political atmosphere in Arizona, and public anger over what many regard as a failure by the federal government to secure the border, some politicians think the idea has a chance of passage. “I think the time is right,” said state Rep. John Kavanagh, a Republican from suburban Phoenix who is chairman of the powerful House Appropriations Committee. “Federal inaction is unacceptable, so the states have to start the process.” Earlier this year, the Legislature set off a storm of protests around the country when it passed a law that directs police to check the immigration status of anyone they suspect is in the country illegally. The law also makes it a state crime to be an illegal immigrant. The measure, which takes effect July 29 unless blocked in court, has inflamed the national debate over immigration and led to boycotts against the state. An estimated 10.8 million illegal immigrants were living in the U.S. as of January 2009, according to the Homeland Security Department. The Pew Hispanic Center estimates that as of 2008, there were 3.8

Pearce, who has yet to draft the legislation, proposes that the state of Arizona no longer issue birth certificates unless at least one parent can prove legal status. He contends that the practice of granting citizenship to anyone born in the U.S. encourages illegal immigrants to come to this country to give birth and secure full rights for their children. “We create the greatest inducement for breaking our laws,” he said. The 14th Amendment, adopted in 1868 in the aftermath of the Civil War, reads: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.” But Pearce argues that the amendment was meant to protect black people. “It’s been hijacked and abused,” he said. “There is no provision in the 14th Amendment for the declaration of citizenship to children born here to illegal aliens.” John McGinnis, a conservative law professor at Northwestern University, said Pearce’s interpretation is “just completely wrong.” The “plain meaning” of the amendment is clear, he said.

Senate candidate Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican and darling of the tea party movement, made headlines last month after he told a Russian TV station that he favors denying citizenship to the children of illegal immigrants. A similar bill was introduced at the federal level in 2009 by former Rep. Nathan Deal, a Georgia Republican, but it has gone nowhere. The Federation for American Immigration Reform, based in Washington, said Pearce’s idea would stop immigrants from traveling to the U.S. to give birth. “Essentially we are talking about people who have absolutely no connection whatever with this country,” spokesman Ira Mehlman said. “The whole idea of citizenship means that you have some connection other than mere happenstance that you were born on U.S. soil.” Citizenship as a birthright is rare elsewhere in the world. Many countries require at least one parent to be a citizen or legal resident. Adopting such a practice in the U.S. would be not only unconstitutional but also impractical and expensive, said Michele Waslin, a policy analyst with the pro-immigrant Immigration Policy Center in Washington.

Panthers give troubled Johnson another NFL shot By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

TOM IZZO TURNS DOWN OFFER TO COACH CAVS EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Tom Izzo is staying at Michigan State, turning down a chance to coach the Cleveland Cavaliers and perhaps LeBron James. “I’m pleased to say I am here for life at Michigan State,” Izzo said in a statement released by the school on Tuesday night. For the past nine days, Izzo has been trying to decide whether to leave the place that has been his home since 1983 and jump to the NBA to perhaps make $6 million — doubling his salary — and possibly coaching one of the best basketball players in the world. “Just as I decided to stay home, I hope a 6-8, 270-pound forward in Cleveland decides to stay home,” Izzo said in a statement. James’ uncertain future will make for a difficult decision for any prospective Cavs coach.

CHARLOTTE — Ed Johnson’s offfield problems started at Penn State. Then came the drug possession arrest in Indianapolis. The Colts finally gave up on him a year later for what they called lack of performance. After being out of the NFL for much of last season, the Carolina Panthers are giving Johnson a chance to shed his image of a talented, run-stopping defensive tackle who isn’t worth the trouble. “I look at it as I’m a free agent again coming out of Penn State without a job,” Johnson said, “and now I have to fight for my life to get a job.”

Depth issues and a coach’s familiarity with Johnson may make Carolina the best spot for the 6-foot-2, 296-pound Johnson. The Panthers desperately need help at defensive tackle. Damione Lewis, Maake Kemoeatu and Hollis Thomas, who have combined to start 57 games for Carolina in the past two seasons, were either released or not re-signed. Tank Tyler and Louis Leonard, who each spent most of last season on injured reserve, lead a remaining group of tackles with little experience on a defensive line that also must replace five-time Pro Bowl end Julius Peppers. So there’s plenty of playing time

NBA KERR SAYS HE WON’T RETURN AS SUNS GM PHOENIX (AP) — Steve Kerr says he won’t return as general manager of the Phoenix Suns, despite building a team that made a surprising run to the Western Conference finals. Kerr says he is exploring opportunities to return to television work. Kerr told The Associated Press that the decision was solely his and not the result of any disagreements with owner Robert Sarver. Kerr’s contract expires at the end of June. He had said he expected to work out a new deal with Sarver. Kerr was a TNT color commentator for NBA telecasts for four years before Sarver hired him three years ago. He said in an interview with the AP a month ago that he sometimes longed for the simpler days behind the microphone.

Chipper Jones meets with Braves over future By PAUL NEWBERRY AP Sports Writer


CHARLOTTE (AP) — The Carolina Panthers have signed their first two draft picks, striking deals with sixth-round selection David Gettis and seventh-round choice R.J. Stanford. The 6-foot-3 Gettis is a receiver from Baylor who is expected to contend for a reserve spot and a role on special teams. The 5-foot-10 Stanford is a cornerback from Utah. He will compete for a job behind starters Chris Gamble and Richard Marshall and nickel back Captain Munnerlyn. Tuesday’s deals leave the Panthers with eight unsigned rookie picks, including quarterback Jimmy Clausen — a second-round selection. The Panthers didn’t have a firstround pick in April’s draft.

SANFORD — In less than a week on the job, David Miller already has his first win. Miller, the new Southern Lee baseball coach, opened his Cavalier career with a 15-5 victory over Village Christian of Raleigh in the Central Carolina Scholastic Summer League opener on Monday night at Tramway Athletic Park. Miller, a 1992 graduate of Lee County High School, replaces the departed Matt Burnett, who resigned to pursue other opportunities. In the short time since returning to Sanford, Miller already likes the effort he’s seen from the Cavaliers. “I really like the guys we have on this team,” said Miller, who takes over a program that has gone to the 3-A state tournament four years in a row. “This is a fun group of guys to work with and I certainly think we have the ability to do some good things together. More importantly, though, they’re all good people and great kids.” The Cavaliers built a 10-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth inning and then

ATLANTA (AP) — Struggling through another disappointing season, Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones told The Associated Press he was meeting with team officials Tuesday to discuss his future and acknowledged that he’s considering retirement. Jones declined to comment directly on whether he’ll retire at the end of the season, but it seemed clear that he’s made up his mind and merely needed to work out a settlement with the team over the $28 million in guaranteed money he’s owed for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. “It’s obvious that it’s something I’ve been thinking about,” Jones told the AP after arriving at Turner Field in his blue pickup truck about 2:15 p.m. “I need to go through the proper channels. Once those have all been taken care of, everybody’s questions will be answered.” The 38-year-old Jones, who won the NL MVP award in 1998 and led the league in hitting just two years ago, met before batting practice with team president John Schuerholz, general manager Frank Wren and manager Bobby Cox. “As best as I can gather right now, he’s thinking about retiring after this year,” Cox said. “But I can’t give a definitive answer.” Jones told the AP he planned to discuss some “red tape issues” with team officials. Asked if those involved a resolution of his contract, Jones replied, “That would be fair to say.” He struggled last season and indicated that another difficult year would likely lead him to consider retirement, even if it meant walking away from a huge amount of money. This season has been even tougher for Jones, though the Braves are leading the NL East.

Tiger says game is progressing for US Open By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — The one shot that got so much attention during practice 10 years ago at Pebble Beach was a 4-iron that Tiger Woods hit so high, so straight, so flush that it landed

softly near the pin on a brickhard green at the par-3 12th. That wasn’t the case Tuesday at the U.S. Open. There is not much about Woods that looks the same as it once did. “Tiger!” he muttered to himself as his 4-iron sailed weakly to

the left of the 12th green, closer to the gallery than the pin. On another chilly and overcast morning on the Monterey Peninsula, Woods hit two drives on the 13th — one left into a bunker, the other in the fairway — for his final shots of the day. His caddie retrieved the balls and followed

Woods through an opening in the fence, into a van and back to the driving range. The course was too crowded, the practice round taking too long. Nothing is comparable, in so many ways, to the last U.S. Open

After some exciting races, Michigan was a snoozefest


oring. Boring. Boring. After a few weeks of excitement and some good racing, we had to endure a boring race at Michigan. NASCAR tried to spice it up at the end with one of those French cautions, but no one could find the debris. No one except Kasey Kahne. He was hollering for the caution and NASCAR obliged, but to no avail. Again Denny Hamlin had the field covered and thus he wins again. So there is my column this week. What did you think? A good one, huh? Now, you know you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to get off that easy. Let me see who or what can I talk about this week. You know what I get really tired of? These movies or television shows that utilize the races or other sporting events to publicize their shows or movies. Last week during the NBA Playoffs, there sitting on the front row right beside the Boston Celtics bench are the cast of clowns from the new movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grown Ups.â&#x20AC;? Now, I like the actors. I like David Spade, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James and Rob Schneider; but after Sandler and James performance telling the drivers to start their engines, well enough is enough. I have been able to deal with the oversaturation of commercials dealing with


Lynn Gaines In The Draft

Gaines can be reached at lynnsue@embarqmail. com the movie and I have been able to turn the channels during some of the ads, but I really expected something better than what I got in Michigan. How much did they pay NASCAR for the opportunity to make fools of themselves? Maybe too much? I know they are comedians but they made a mockery of the honor. I believe we are just a few weeks removed from Richard Petty and Junior Johnson doing the same thing? Can you imagine the King or Junior acting like that? I think the biggest disappointment was the announcers actually thinking that the bit was funny. Maybe I am wrong? Maybe you, the readers and NASCAR fans everywhere, thought it was funny? Maybe I am in the minority? If so, then I am sorry, but I actually thought it sucked and was lacking of entertainment. It was a cheap and unfunny way to advertise the movie. After that exhibition, I was hoping for something better. I mean anything would be better than those two but what do we get? Captain Morgan trying to

act like a pirate and then pretending to drive a race car. OMG! (That was my text for this week!) He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have a pirateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accent. He did throw in a jab that people needed to drink responsibly. So, I guess there was a silver lining behind his being involved but again it was an expensive way to advertise. Maybe they are having to resort to all these methods because according to what I am seeing, people are staying home. Yes, there it was again in color. Bunches of empty seats. The only seats that looked reasonably full were those right along the front stretch. All along the turns and even along the entrance to pit road, the seats were empty. This was disturbing because of the tracks proximity to Detriot, but I guess that the hard economic times in Michigan contributed to the low attendance. If that is the case, then what can explain the same scenario in Charlotte and Texas or Las Vegas? Unfortunately, I think NASCAR is losing itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appeal. That is something we can examine as the season progresses. Of course, unless someone other than Denny Hamlin wins a race then I will quit, too. Last week, I touched a little on the Joey Lagano, Kevin Harvick tift at Pocono. I wished I had waited to write some of my views because I would have said something about Laganoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad. I firmly believe he should be made to stay away from the track. When I umpired Little League baseball, one the worse

things that could happen was when a parent would get involved and not let the coach or the umpire do his job. You know, the job that he is donating his time to do? Most parents want what is best for their children and will do or say what they think is right, but Laganoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad has gone overboard. He needs to back off and let Joey fight his own battles and let him do his job and race his own car. One day, he needs to grow up and the sooner he does, the sooner he will get respect from his peers. Now I will look at it from Harvickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s angle. He and his wife have hit on a jackpot. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful what they have done with the phrase, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know who wears the firesuit in his houseâ&#x20AC;?. They are raising money for one of their organizations by selling the shirt online and it only comes in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sizes. On Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pre-race show, when asked about Joeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to the shirt, Harvick said Lagano is only 20, he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand, but women wear the firesuit in every manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. That is some great stuff. OK, that is enough whining for one week. It is on to one of the two road races as we head to Sonoma. If you are planning to watch it, then you had better get your scorecards ready because there will be a lot of different drivers in the cars this week as some owners bring in the so-called road race experts. I will tell you that it will probably be the same olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, same olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Although this could be the week that Juan Pablo Onetoya wins again. I talked about those comedians, and there I was trying to be funny. You have to admit, that was pretty good since he has only won one race in NASCAR. See you after Sonoma.

SPORTS BRIEFS Carroll: NCAA off base in sacking USC RENTON, Wash. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Pete Carroll believes the NCAA had no basis for sanctions on the Southern California football program, and reiterated Tuesday that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave to escape the penalties. The former Trojans coach expects USCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pending appeal of NCAA sanctions will produce transcripts that show the governing body for college sports had no basis for its â&#x20AC;&#x153;really, really harshâ&#x20AC;? bowl ban and scholarship cuts. Carroll answered questions for the first time since the NCAA came down hard on USC, mainly for improper benefits received by former star rusher Reggie Bush during Carrollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenure. The new coach of the Seahawks said he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;responsibleâ&#x20AC;? as USCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head coach, but that there was no way for him to know Bush was being wooed by an offcampus agent. Carroll said the NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bowl ban and scholarship cuts are unfair to the current Trojans who had nothing to do with the case. He called rules allowing players to leave a potentially devastating â&#x20AC;&#x153;fire saleâ&#x20AC;? for the program. He wants the NCAA and high schools to help in a grass-roots effort to keep outsiders away from college athletes.

Thompson: Utah AD, school not been contacted by Pac-10 HALF MOON BAY, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mountain West Conference commissioner Craig Thompson says he was told Monday by Utahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic director that the university had not been contacted by the Pac-10. Thompson was attending a meeting of conference commissioners in northern California on Tuesday. Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott was not in attendance. Thompson says Scott has not contacted him since the Pac-10â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s invitation to Texas was declined Monday. The Pac-10 was hoping to add the Longhorns and four other Big 12 schools to form a 16-

team conference. But Texas and the rest decided to stay put. The Pac-10 is one member short of the 12 it needs to hold a football championship game. Utah has been speculated as being the Pac-10â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next target.

WR Ochocinco back to playing football CINCINNATI (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chad Ochocinco (oh-choh-SINKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;-oh) caught a 55-yard pass from Carson Palmer in stride, then raised both arms toward a camera filming the Cincinnati Bengals minicamp from the back of the end zone. Always, he finds the camera. The Pro Bowl receiver took a break from dancing and dating to play some football on Tuesday. He looked rusty during his first practice since the end of last season. Ochocinco hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attended the voluntary offseason practices because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dancing With the Starsâ&#x20AC;? and hosting a cable dating show. Palmer noted last week that Ochocincoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absence made it tougher to run the offense in practice. The two of them shared a laugh in the locker room after practice on Tuesday.

Jimmie Johnson ready to rush home if babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on way NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The golf cart will be ready to whisk Jimmie Johnson to the helicopter, which will be waiting to rush him to the plane. The four-time defending Sprint Cup champion has all the details covered in case his wife goes into labor while heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at Sonoma this weekend. He and wife Chandra are expecting their first child next month. The baby is due during the break between the July 10 race in Chicago and July 25 in Indianapolis. But Johnson is prepared should he become a father early. Part-time Cup driver Aric Almirola is set to serve as an emergency fill-in if need be. Johnson just hopes he can drive at least the first lap of the upcoming races, because that would mean heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d receive any points the car earns.

Brazil beats North Korea Americans 2-1 in World Cup debut favored JOHANNESBURG (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Maicon and Elano scored a goal apiece in the second half and Brazil broke through a solid North Korea defense to win its first 2010 World Cup match 2-1 on a frigid Tuesday night. Brazil escaped with a hardfought victory in the Group G match after struggling to get past the defensive setup of the North Koreans, who are making their first World Cup appearance in 44 years and arrived as the tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lowest-ranked team. Maicon put Brazil ahead after a through ball from midfielder Elano, making a run on the right side and firing into the far corner from a tight angle as North Korea goalkeeper Ri Myong Guk went for the cross. Elano added to the lead after a well-timed pass from Robinho.

New Zealand late goal gets 1-1 draw

Ivory Coast outplays Portugal but draws 0-0 PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ivory Coast tied Portugal 0-0 at the World Cup on Tuesday, largely outplaying its higherranked opponent despite Didier Drogba only coming on as a late substitute. Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo rattled a 30-yard strike off the left post in the 11th minute, but Ivory Coast otherwise created the better openings. Drogba came on as a 66th-minute substitute for fellow Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou after FIFA cleared him to play with a cast on his right arm, which he broke in a warmup match against Japan on June 4. He was only allowed to play

RUSTENBURG, South Africa (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Winston Reid didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think twice about stripping off his shirt in celebration of his big goal. The yellow card he would receive wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even a consideration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It probably was the most important goal of my life,â&#x20AC;? Reid said Tuesday after scoring in second-half injury time to lift New Zealand into a 1-1 draw with Slovakia in Group F. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the ball until late. I knew that if I got it on-target and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hit it too hard, I could just guide it in.â&#x20AC;? Which he did before sprinting to the sideline, his shirt removed, as teammates chased him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will take it,â&#x20AC;? Reid said

of the yellow card. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was worth it.â&#x20AC;? Born in Auckland, he moved to Denmark at age 10 and is a citizen of the country. He only switched his allegiance back to New Zealand this year. That seems to be worth it, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the beginning, I was weighing my options up,â&#x20AC;? Reid said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel I made the right decision, not because of the goal but because of the feeling in the team.â&#x20AC;? The feeling in the Slovakian team was not quite so upbeat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were the better team over the game,â&#x20AC;? coach Vladimir Weiss said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pity we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take (advantage of) our chances.â&#x20AC;? Robert Vittek scored early in the second half, giving Slovakia the lead. But Reid sneaked behind the defense to take a long cross from Shane Smeltz and tie it.

IRENE, South Africa (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Americans returned to the practice field Tuesday, not only to prepare for their upcoming match with Slovenia, but the new role theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been cast in at this World Cup. Favorites. Yes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right. The good, olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; underdog Yanks are favored for a change - and therein lies the problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In all likelihood, if we lose weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out of the tournament,â&#x20AC;? Landon Donovan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reality of the situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A tie means weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still in the tournament. You have to be aware of that. That being said, we understand very clearly that if we win the game, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a very, very good chance of getting through. So that will be our focus,â&#x20AC;? he said. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take a genius to figure out that the Americans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be in the position of having only one point through two matches while Slovenia has six and England may have four. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going into a game as possible favorites will be different for us,â&#x20AC;? defender Jay DeMerit said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re under pressure to get three points or to get a good result instead of saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go out and try our best and make sure we work well together and see what happens.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

allowed Village Christian to sneak back into the game with five runs in the top of the fifth. Southern Lee put the game out of reach, however, with five additional runs in the bottom of the fifth to end the game due to the mercy rule. “I thought we played pretty well,” said Miller. “I certainly saw some things that I was very pleased with. There were also some things that I saw that I think we need to improve on. It’s still nice to get things started with a win.” One thing Miller would like to see improvement on is base running.

tice prior to Monday’s game, Miller says that the players might not be familiar with some of his terminology. “You always need to work on base running,” said Miller. “This was just our first game together and we haven’t had practice yet, so I was probably saying things that the players didn’t quite understand just yet. When we practice and work out in the fall, that’ll be our chance to really get on the same page with each other.” Miller doesn’t plan on making the Cavaliers practice too much during the summer. He plans on allowing the kids to use their summers to relax, focus on other sports or spend time with family. “We’re not going to practice. We’re just going to play games,” said Miller.

“Summer is usually about having down time and being with family. We’ll start our practices and workouts in the fall.” Next up for Miller and the Cavaliers will be a battle with Cape Fear Valley Conference foe Overhills on Wednesday in Spring Lake. The Cavaliers will not return home until next week. Since being hired, Miller has received positive feedback and has gotten plenty of support from his players, parents and the Southern Lee administration. “So far everything’s been great,” said Miller. “This is a great group of kids, the administration and parents have been nothing but supportive. I’m excited to be here and be a part of Southern Lee High School.”

he played at Pebble Beach. Ten years ago, Woods arrived at Pebble having won 12 times in the previous nine months. This year, he has finished only 13 rounds in the previous seven months. He was the overwhelming favorite in 2000, as he was at just about every tournament. This year, British bookmaker Williams Hill lists him as co-favorite with Masters champion Phil Mickelson at 8-1. The only thing particularly sharp about Woods was his tongue when a reporter asked about the status of his marriage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s none of your business,â&#x20AC;? Woods barked back. If there is any comfort about this U.S. Open for

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s battled injuries and was hitting just .228 with three homers and 22 RBIs heading into the opener of a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Braves have gotten more production at third base out of utility infielders Omar Infante (.314, one homer, 16 RBIs) and Brooks Conrad (.280, three homers, 12 RBIs), which has made Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; troubles stand out even more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, anytime youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve struggled at the plate and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having trouble producing, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustrating,â&#x20AC;? Jones told the AP, standing outside the Braves club-

available. And Johnson knows the defense, since Panthers defensive coordinator Ron Meeks was running the Coltsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense in 2007 when Johnson started all 16 games and collected 63 tackles as an undrafted rookie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know what he expects from me. I know what he wants me to do,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said of Meeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know the things heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen me do before. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a comfort zone when the bar is so high and you have to meet those expectations.â&#x20AC;? Johnson has had difficulty with the meeting expectations part. Part of the reason he went undrafted was a series of college transgressions. He was suspended in 2004 for his role in an off-campus fight. He was temporarily kicked out of school a year later for what was referred to as a sexual misconduct violation, although

The Sanford Herald / Wednesday, June 16, 2010 / 5B the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 1 player, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his track record at Pebble Beach. He won the PGA Tour event in February with a five-shot rally in the final round, then sent shock waves through the golfing world with a game that was close to flawless. On a course in which no other player came close to breaking par, Woods finished at 12-under 272 to win by 15 shots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was really a wakeup call for a lot of guys,â&#x20AC;? said Ernie Els, who played in the final round with Woods that week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of guys started changing their game. And a lot of guys took their physical fitness to another level. And 10 years later, here we are.â&#x20AC;? Mickelson is as great of a threat as ever, with a chance to replace Woods atop the world rankings this week. Els is two-time winner on the PGA Tour

this year, as is Jim Furyk. The hottest player might be Lee Westwood, a runner-up at the Masters, no worse than third in his last three majors, and a winner last week in Tennessee. Even so, the close competition is equally attributed to Woods. After five months off while coping with the fallout from his extramarital affairs, Woods tied for fourth at the Masters in a remarkable performance. The three tournaments since then have been anything but remarkable. He missed the cut at Quail Hollow. He was in the middle of the pack at The Players Championship when he withdrew from the final round with a neck injury. He was just another player at Muirfield Village two weeks ago when he tied for 19th at the Memorial.

house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m used to being in the middle of everything, but it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been happening. Hopefully Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a better second half and really help contribute to this team staying in first place.â&#x20AC;? The team later put out a statement saying Jones would not be available to the media Tuesday. He took part in batting practice and was listed in the preliminary lineup, batting in his usual third spot. On an 11game road trip, he played just three games because of an ailing finger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been bothered by that finger, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine right now,â&#x20AC;? Cox said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got him back in there. Hopefully he can lead us to a championship.â&#x20AC;? Baseball already lost

one of the generationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest stars when Ken Griffey Jr. abruptly retired this month in the middle of his 22nd season. Jones has put together a career that could get him in the mix for Cooperstown â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he had 429 career homers and trailed only Mickey Mantle (536) and Eddie Murray (504) among switch-hitters. Jones has long been the face of the Bravesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense, helping Atlanta wins its lone World Series title as a rookie in 1995 and significantly contributing to an unprecedented run of 14 straight division titles. His best year was 1999, when he led the Braves to the NL championship and was named MVP after hitting .319 with 45 homers and 110 RBIs.

no charges were filed. Coach Joe Paterno suspended him from his final college game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Outback Bowl at the end of the 2006 season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for violating a team rule. Still, Paternoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s positive recommendation helped him get an opportunity with the Colts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was young, I was immature then. I made some mistakes, but he knew me,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He knew the type of work I put in.â&#x20AC;? Johnson appeared to silence critics after his impressive rookie season when he took over for injured starter Anthony McFarland in training camp and appeared on his way to being another Colts undrafted success story. That all changed early in the 2008 season, when Johnson was waived less than 24 hours after he charged with marijuana possession following a traffic stop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ed was well aware that his past history required him to be in complete compliance with club rules,â&#x20AC;?

Colts president Bill Polian said at the time. Indianapolis resisted bringing him back even though it became one of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst teams in stopping the run without him. The Colts changed their mind when they re-signed Johnson before last season. He had to sit out Week 1 for violating the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s substance abuse policy because of his marijuana arrest, then returned to the starting lineup. But in early October, the Colts abruptly cut Johnson again. Coach Jim Caldwell insisted it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for offfield problems, but instead â&#x20AC;&#x153;was a matter of production.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not really sure,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said on why he was released. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football, people get cut every day, people lose their jobs every day. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with it but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to move on. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to keep playing.â&#x20AC;? Trouble was, nobody wanted Johnson. He spent the final three months of the season out of the game.

With Colorado (Pac-10) and Nebraska (Big Ten) leaving in the next two years and the Pac-10 making a hard sell to Texas and four other schools to join them, the promises â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not guarantees â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of bigger checks in the future finally persuaded the Longhorns and the others to stay put. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a long-term and unequivocal commitment,â&#x20AC;? Texas president William Powers Jr., said Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided the Big 12 provides the best long-term opportunity for our university.â&#x20AC;? According IRS tax records examined by The Associated Press, the Big 12 paid out between $8.7 million to $15.4 million per school in 2008-09, with Kansas State getting the smallest payout and Oklahoma the biggest. The Big 12â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s television deal with Fox expires in 2012 and a more lucrative contract with ESPN runs through the 2015-2016 academic year. Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe said no new TV deals have been struck, but he has â&#x20AC;&#x153;extremely strong verification, based on our analysis with our

consultants and others, and media companies themselves, that we are in a tremendous position to execute future agreements that will put our member institutions on par with any in the country.â&#x20AC;? He did not provide any numbers during a conference call with reporters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Big 12 approached us asking if we would maintain our current agreement through its term of 2015-16 and we agreed,â&#x20AC;? said Josh Krulewitz, vice president for communications for ESPN. A Fox Sports Net spokesman said that no new deal had been reached but there would be ongoing discussions. The Big 12 has increased the financial reward for every one of its members since it began play in 1996. It distributed $139 million to its members this past fiscal year, more than ever. Texas, already the richest and most powerful of the Big 12 schools, is convinced it can make even more money in a 10-team league. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Big 12 (television) package is going to be every bit as good as any other conference,â&#x20AC;? Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are in good shape on the television side.â&#x20AC;? And by staying in the Big 12, Texas can explore whether it should start its own Longhorns TV network. If they had moved to the Pac-10, Texas would

have had to surrender its media rights. Texas womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic director Chris Plonsky said the network, which would broadcast Texas sports and other university events, should bring in â&#x20AC;&#x153;millionsâ&#x20AC;? to the school. Some of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smaller schools are giving up cash for the promise of keeping the league together and more money later. Kansas, Kansas State, Baylor, Iowa State and Missouri â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who were in danger of being left homeless if the conference dissolved â&#x20AC;&#x201D; agreed to give up their share in buyout penalties to be paid by Nebraska and Colorado for leaving the league, Beebe said. The idea is to have that money go to Texas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma, the schools the Big 12 needed to stay to remain viable, to make up for the difference in revenue those three might have made going elsewhere. The amount of the penalties has not been disclosed, the Colorado athletic director Mike Bohn confirmed his schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s penalty for leaving the Big 12 â&#x20AC;&#x153;could beâ&#x20AC;? around $9 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll work with our new conference with some type of finance agreement,â&#x20AC;? Bohn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Pac-10 will not assist in any contributions toward the buyout. But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve indicated a willingness to help us finance the agreement (to join).â&#x20AC;?

6B / Wednesday, June 16, 2010 / The Sanford Heral DEAR ABBY


Co-worker discovers man’s double life at nightclub DEAR ABBY: Recently I was at a club with friends and ran into a co-worker. He was dressed in drag and introduced himself as “Glenda.” At work, he dresses like a male and goes by “Glen.” Since that night he has been avoiding me and cutting conversations short, if not ignoring me altogether. Should I let him know I’m OK with his alternate persona, or let it be? I don’t want to risk awkward situations. — SYMPATHETIC IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Talk from the heart. Your sincerity will win favors and support. Travel plans should be made for both business and pleasure. Don’t let uncertainties stand in your way. You will be able to turn things in your favor by not backing away from a situation that is teetering. You can stabilize what’s going on around you if you remain balanced and constant. Your numbers are 2, 11, 15, 26, 28, 37, 40 ARIES (March 21-April 19): You need to relax and enjoy what life has to offer. Love and romance are in the stars if you take a moment to be attentive and affectionate with someone you care for. Talk about your plans and how you can turn them into a reality. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your actions will upset someone close to you, especially if you try to withhold information. Someone you are close to will have trouble relating to your situation. Make some personal changes to help you feel good about the way you look. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your interest in what’s happening with others will bring with it support and popularity. Encounters with new acquaintances will be uplifting. Love is on the rise and time spent with someone special will bring emotional rewards. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Talk to people in a position to make decisions and who can offer up the format for doing things according to regulations. You can be a driving force without being assertive. If you have to push someone, perhaps it’s best to replace instead. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t sit back if someone is adding to your responsibilities. Be forthright about what you can and cannot do. Once you have established your position, you can get on with the things


that really matter to you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You will be faced with options that can affect your position, future and reputation. Do what you know in your heart is the right thing to do. Sharing what you know will ease your stress. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The more you do to help or volunteer, the better established you will become with people who hold the same opinion as you. Romance is in the stars, so enjoy the company of someone who understands you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t let your emotions get in the way. Just because someone pushes you to make a decision doesn’t mean you should feel obliged to be a follower. A networking event will lead to an engaging encounter. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Hooking up with someone who can offer what you lack will make for a winning combination. You must, however, fully understand what’s expected of you before you move ahead. Uncertainty can turn a good thing into something unworkable. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Take a close look at what’s being offered and move forward quickly. Your response to deals and what others want will put you in a power position. A business partnership with a friend, relative or neighbor may be tempting but will be dicey. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Get your priorities straight before moving forward. Not being honest with the people in your life will not help you get ahead. Spend more time thinking and discussing what you want to do in the future. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You must offer your very best if you want to be taken seriously. Smart business starts with honesty and integrity. You can think big but offer your ideas simply until everyone is on board with you.

DEAR SYMPATHETIC: I don’t know how large your company is or how much contact you have with Glen. If the answer is it’s a large company and contact is minimal, then let it be. If you have contact with Glen frequently, and his embarrassment is having an impact on your work relationship, then clear the air by letting him know that what happens after hours is his business and you do not gossip. Period. o DEAR ABBY: My sister, “Gina,” recently became engaged to her longtime boyfriend. A few days after hearing about the engagement, I sent her an e-mail telling her my husband and I were free every weekend except Oct. 8, 9 and 10 because a dear friend had asked me months ago to be a bridesmaid in her wedding that

weekend. I have already bought the dress and had it altered. I called Gina to explain the situation after sending the e-mail. Yesterday, I spoke with my father and found out that Gina has chosen Oct. 9 for her wedding day, even though I told her I couldn’t make it then. Gina wants me to be her matron of honor because she was my maid of honor. Clearly, I cannot participate in two weddings on the same day at the same time in different locations. Who do I say no to? — DREADING WEDDINGS IN WASHINGTON, D.C. DEAR DREADING: Let me get this straight. You warned your sister that you would be unavailable on a certain weekend, she chose that date for her wedding anyway, and you had to hear the news from your father? Could there be more going on with your relationship with your sister than you men-

tioned in your letter? Perhaps she felt “obligated” to have you in her wedding party because she was in yours? From my perspective, you should thank your sister for her kind offer and remind her that you had already told her you would be unavailable that weekend. That way, you’re both off the hook. o DEAR ABBY: I work in a small office, and every day a co-worker’s adult child who works nearby comes here to have lunch with her mother. She knows everyone’s business as if she worked here, and we’re forced to order her something when we get takeout. Frankly, we’re tired of it. How can we put a stop to this without hurting anyone’s feelings? — ONE MORE FOR LUNCH DEAR O.M.F.L.: It appears the line between “family” and “business” has become blurred. The co-worker who is closest to the mother should approach her privately and say, “You should know that your daughter coming here every day is creating hard feelings in the office. If you want to have lunch with her every day, then you should be doing it outside the office. During our lunch time, we want to talk about things that are personal, and her presence makes that difficult.”

ODDS AND ENDS Lightning strike sets 6-story-tall Jesus statue in Ohio on fire MONROE, Ohio (AP) — A six-story statue of Jesus Christ was struck by lightning and burned to the ground, leaving only a blackened steel skeleton and pieces of foam that were scooped up by curious onlookers Tuesday. The “King of Kings” statue, one of southwest Ohio’s most familiar landmarks, had stood since 2004 at the evangelical Solid Rock Church along Interstate 75 in Monroe, just north of Cincinnati. The lightning strike set the statue ablaze around 11:15 p.m. Monday, Monroe police dispatchers said. The sculpture, about 62 feet tall and 40 feet wide at the base, showed Jesus from the torso up and was nicknamed Touchdown Jesus because of the way the arms were raised, similar to a referee signaling a touchdown. It was made of plastic foam and fiberglass over a steel frame, which is all that remained Tuesday. The nickname is the same used for a famous mural of the resurrected Jesus that overlooks the Notre Dame football stadium.

St. Louis pet waste removal worker finds $58 in dog poop ST. LOUIS (AP) — This is why your mother says to wash your hands after handling money: A St. Louis worker found $58 — packed in dog poop. Steve Wilson works for DoodyCalls Pet Waste Removal. On a recent call, he noticed money sticking out from doggie doo. Wil-


MY ANSWER son wasn’t sure what to do, but eventually pulled out the bills, sanitized them, placed them in a plastic zip-locked bag and returned them to the customer. It turned out to be $58. The company said the money was torn, but the serial numbers were identifiable, which means the bills could be returned to a bank and replaced with new money. The Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists says Wilson is the first person in his profession to find and report money in dog poop.

Mass. town can’t unload house near landfill NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts town has lowered the price of a home it’s trying to sell because there’s barely been a sniff of interest. The four-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot home on 2.4 acres of land is right next to Northampton’s landfill. When potential buyers find out about it, they back away. Northampton’s Board of Public Works bought the home as part of a legal settlement with the previous owners, who frequently complained about the landfill’s odor. The home went on the market about a year ago for nearly $479,000. When it didn’t sell, the price was lowered to $375,000. Board Chairman Terry Culhane said the price was slashed again to $290,000 last week. Culhane tells The Republican of Springfield he’d be surprised if someone doesn’t bite now.

God loves everyone Q: I know you like to say that God loves us, but what about someone who isn’t talented or doesn’t have any money or isn’t successful? Does He love them, too? I’d like to think God loves me, but I honestly can’t see why He should. -- P.L. A: Let me say it as clearly as possible: God’s love isn’t limited to people who are talented or rich or successful! God loves every person on this planet, no matter who they are or what they have done. And that includes you. In fact, people with great ability or wealth often have a hard time turning to God, because their pride gets in the way, and they think they don’t really need Him. A proud person tends to rely on himself when challenges come, and may even think that God is only for weak people. But it isn’t true. The Bible warns, “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18). How do I know God loves you? I know it first of all because God says so in His Word, the Bible. God created the whole human race -- and He loves the whole human race. The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son” (John 3:16). And that’s the second reason why I know God loves you: He sent His Son into the world to give His life for you. If you had been the only person on earth who needed to be saved, Christ still would have died for you. Yes, God loves us -- but we must respond to His love. And that’s what I invite you to do. Respond to His love by opening your heart and life to Jesus Christ today.

Clichés often fit the truth

Conserving water in the home garden



lichés are a funny thing. Although they are overused I guess it is for a reason, because they oftentimes do prove to be true. While by definition they may have lost their effect years ago, we continue to use them because sometimes, they just fit. When googled online, it even suggests that they make for lousy writing — to “avoid them like the plague” — but here I am writing about them anyway. I couldn’t INSIDE care less. See our The weekly Dining only thing Guide for that you local menu can be options sure of is Pages 4-5C that you can’t be sure of anything. For the first 18 years of my life, I wouldn’t go near a mushroom. I couldn’t even stand the smell of mushrooms. I remember my mom sautéing mushrooms to have over steak, and I couldn’t believe that anyone would ruin a steak in such a horrific way. Now, I crave mushrooms like nothing else. While a pile of nicely sautéed mushrooms is absolutely delicious over a steak, I don’t even need the steak. I would be just as happy with the pile of mushrooms alone. On a sandwich, on a burger, in a salad — everything now tastes better to me with mushrooms. I would have told anybody that they were crazy had they suggested that I would ever feel this way — I was sure that I absolutely hated mushrooms. But here I am. A mushroom lover. Wonders never cease. Needless to say, there aren’t too many foods left that I don’t care for. While I was a fairly picky child, I am much more open to new and different foods as an adult. Better late than never, right? There is, however, one food in this world that I just can’t stomach. Olives. What’s not to like, you may ask.

Garden improves neighborhood By LAURA YOUNGER Special to The Herald


handful of Rosemount-McIver residents were looking for ways to improve their neighborhood. How could we make a positive impact on our community and reap benefits at the same time? The answer, naturally, was to start a community garden. Mike and Nancy Humphrey had long been interested in turning a vacant, city-owned FEMA lot into a garden, and after much legwork performed by neighbor resident Denise Roethlisberger, a lease was obtained from the City of Sanford for a quarter-

EDITOR’S NOTE The Satellite Garden Project is a joint effort through the N.C. Cooperative Extension in Lee County and 10 local organizations that have chosen to participate in the inaugural program. Funding from this project was provided through a number of grants received by the Lee County 4-H program including United Way of Lee County, Environmental Impact Resource Conservation and Development, and the USDA/ Natural Resource Conservation Service. Each week, The Herald will be highlighting one of the 10 different Satellite Garden sites with a story and photos submitted by a participating member of the garden. This week’s profile was submitted by Laura Younger and is on the satellite garden on Vance Street.

ater is one of the most precious of our resources and everyone should strive to conserve it at all times. Water conservation is easy to achieve in the home garden. When planning a landscape, group plants with similar water needs together. No, you don’t have to plant all desert plants. Feel free to plant petunias, just put them with the other thirsty plants. When it comes time to water, most landscape areas require one inch per week. Water can be supplied by sprinklers, drip irrigation, watering cans, hoses, and, of course, Mother Nature. The important thing to remember is that the amount of water applied cannot be measured by time, unless you have calculated the application rate. Also, be sure that all the water you are applying is able to soak in, otherwise you are applying water too quickly and wasting. It is easy (and fun!) to calculate the application rate for a sprinkler. One piece of equipment that is absolutely essential for gardening is a rain gauge. A rain gauge will not only keep an accurate reading of the amount of rain that has fallen in your immediate area, but it will also help you to calibrate your sprinkler. Place 3-4 rain gauges or straight-sided vegetable cans (make sure your cans have straight sides or

Eating healthy this summer

Top summer health tips


he ice cream truck, the pool snack bar, and the ball field concession stand are three rites of summer that children enjoy when the mercury starts to rise and the burgers and dogs begin sizzling on the grill. The only problem is, are we enjoying them a little too much? The U.S. Surgeon General reports that since 1980, the percentage of children who are overweight has nearly tripled. Over 8 million young Americans, or 15 percent of all children, are overweight. New studies suggest that one in four overweight children are already showing early signs of type II diabetes, and 60 percent already have at least one risk factor for heart disease. Often times the summer food that kids like to eat the most are the worst things for them to put into their bodies. Processed foods like prepackaged meats, frozen meals, and fast food are often high in sodium, saturated fat, and loaded with calories from fat. As a rule of thumb, only 30 percent of daily caloric intake should be from fat, and most of the time children are getting a much

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lemon Cakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; finds sadness in childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gift By M.L. JOHNSON Associated Press Writer â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cakeâ&#x20AC;? (Doubleday, 292 pages, $25.95), by Aimee Bender Rose Edelstein is nearly 9 when she bites into the lemon cake with chocolate icing that her mother made for her birthday and discovers she has developed an undesirable skill â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she can taste the cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emotions in every food she eats. Roseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother is lost and lonely, and her anguish permeates everything she makes, from rosemary chicken to roast beef. Lunches packed by her mother and meals at home become inedible, and Rose spends her childhood scraping together money to buy Doritos and other snacks from vending machines. One of her favorites is made in a factory where no human hands touch the ingredients or the final product, leaving the chips blessedly blank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cakeâ&#x20AC;? contains the kind of unconventional and impossible world Aimee Bender introduced in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Girl in the Flammable Skirt.â&#x20AC;? While one friend urges Rose to use her ability to become a kind of superhero, she feels afflicted rather than empowered. In one sad moment, she describes being torn between hungry gratitude and envy when another friend to whom she

nesses. The child helps her mother conceal an affair and reminds her father that by avoiding his special skill â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which he believes has to do with hospitals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he has lost the chance to help others. Throughout the novel, there is a sense of Rose making the best of things and trying to get by while protecting those she loves. While Rose finds a kind of acceptance and satisfaction in using her skill to help others as she ages into her early 20s, a sense of sadness and loss lingers through the end of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lemon Cake.â&#x20AC;? This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a novel to be read lightly or that will brighten a day. But one has to admire Benderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s originality and her ability to produce stories that make one grateful for being ordinary.

Gradually, Rose realizes she isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only one in her family with an unusual ability. Her brother begins to disappear for short periods and returns looking â&#x20AC;&#x153;like he had been washed and dried in a machine.â&#x20AC;? When he vanishes completely, Rose is the only one who knows where he has gone, but her grief is such that she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t explain to anyone, not even her parents. As bad as her skill is, she thinks, her brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s must be worse. And if Rose isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a superhero, Bender clearly sees her as a heroine.

Discount travel tips for retirees

DEAR SAVVY SENIOR: Can you write a column on U.S. travel discounts for seniors? My husband and I are approaching retirement and love to travel but have a limited budget. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; DISCOUNT TRAVELERS

DEAR TRAVELERS: Everybody loves a bargain but in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tight economy, senior discount travel deals that have real value are getting harder to find. Here are some tips to help you find the best deals.

Senior discounts?

When it comes to senior travel bargains, an important point to keep in mind is that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;senior discountâ&#x20AC;? may not always be the best deal. Hotels, airlines and cruise lines, for example, offer advanced bookings along with special deals and promotions from time to time that may be a lower rate than what the senior discount is. Always ask about the lowest possible rate and the best deal available. With that said, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a breakdown of the different senior travel discounts that are available today and where you can find them. AARP discounts: If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a member of AARP, various travel discounts are available on hotels, rental cars, cruises and vacation packages. To find them see or, or call

A quick wet rub, a massive amount of flavor

Fat: The secret ingredient to a tasty burger

By J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Editor

During summer, I’m likely to grill as many as four or five nights a week. It just makes sense for the weeknight kitchen. Grilling is fast, easy and leaves almost no cleanup. Especially when you do the entire meal on the grill. The only downside of grilling with the frequency I do is that meals can start to feel repetitive. That’s why I am constantly experimenting with new rubs, brines, marinades and seasoning mixes — all of which are near effortless and versatile ways to add tons of flavor. Burgers, for example, can be spiked with different seasonings for fresh approaches each night. Perhaps an Asianinspired blend of fresh ginger, garlic, chives and mustard powder one night, then a mix of diced jalapenos and Jack cheese the next. Pork and chicken can be brined in a mix of cool water, sugar, salt and whichever seasonings appeal to you. Beef (or in the case of this recipe, bison) does particularly well with rubs, either wet or dry. For this recipe, a base of balsamic vinegar and tamarind paste (widely available in the Asian aisle at most grocers) add tons of flavor, while also keeping the meat (bison dries out quickly) moist. And since I like to do the entire meal on the grill, the side of garlic-paprika corn can be tossed on right alongside the steaks. The ears of corn are wrapped in foil to help keep the butter from dripping off.

Well, I don’t know. But I’m going to go out on a limb and say that that is one thing that really will never change. But I guess I shouldn’t be so sure. Portabella Mushroom Bake is a recipe that my sister passed along to me. It seems like a random combination of ingredients, but they are all tasty ingredients, so what’s not to like? If you feel as though you’ve never liked mushrooms, go ahead and give it a try anyway. Live like there’s no tomorrow. Maybe things have changed. Maybe you like them now. Just don’t go and try getting me to eat an olive. You’d be barking up the wrong tree there.

BISON STEAKS WITH BALSAMIC-TAMARIND WET RUB Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 2 tablespoons canola oil 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1 teaspoon tamarind paste 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon smoked paprika Four 6-ounce bison steaks In a large bowl, mix together the oil, vinegar, tamarind paste, salt, pepper, cinnamon and smoked paprika. Add the bison steaks and use your hands to slather the mixture evenly over all sides of the steaks. Set aside at room temperature for 15 minutes. Heat the grill to mediumhigh. Oil the grates. Grill the steaks for 5 minutes per side, or until deep grill marks appear. Transfer to a plate, cover and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

GARLIC-PAPRIKA GRILLED CORN Start to finish: 20 minutes Servings: 4 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, very soft 2 cloves garlic, finely diced or mashed 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon smoked or sweet paprika 4 ears corn, husked In a small bowl, mix together the butter, garlic, salt and paprika. Rub a quarter of the mixture over each ear of corn, then wrap each tightly in foil. Heat a grill to medium-high. Grill the corn for 5 minutes, then serve wrapped in the foil. Nutrition information per serving (values are rounded to the nearest whole number): 254 calories; 128 calories from fat; 14 g fat (8 g saturated; 0 g trans fats); 30 mg cholesterol; 27 g carbohydrate; 5 g protein; 7 g fiber; 252 mg sodium.

PORTABELLA MUSHROOM BAKE 1/2 cup almonds 1/4 cup olive oil 1/4 cup soy sauce 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon dried rosemary 1 teaspoon dried oregano 4 large portabella mushrooms, stems removed 1 medium onion sliced Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pulverize almonds until powdered. Add remaining ingredients with exception of mushrooms and onions and blend until smooth. In a baking dish, place mushrooms upside down (the stem side facing up), top with sliced onions and smother with the sauce. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve over pasta, rice, or just alone.

When it comes to ground meat (or most any meats for that matter), it’s a simple equation: fat equals flavor and moisture. It would follow then that a low-fat burger should be dry and tasteless, right? Not necessarily. While it may be tempting to go for 90 or 95 percent lean ground beef or turkey when crafting a leaner burger, the results will be disappointing. A better choice is to use a juicier 85 percent lean meat and find other ways to cut the fat. The secret is in knowing how to pad your patty by using some healthful ingredients mixed into the ground meat that can enhance the flavor while also reducing the amount of meat (and fat) in each burger. Ingredients such as wholegrain breadcrumbs, couscous or prepared bulgur often are used for making meatballs and meatloaves, and they work just as well in burgers, too. As a rule of thumb, it’s best not to add filler at more than a one-tothree ratio to the meat; otherwise the hamburger patties will tend to fall apart, especially on the grill. Dry ingredients also tend to work better than moist ones. If you’d like to use vegetables to bulk up your burgers, it’s best to

drain the ingredients well. For instance, you can use flavor-packed roasted red peppers or sun-dried tomatoes, but be sure to thoroughly blot away any excess packing liquids with paper towels before chopping and adding to your meat. This recipe for chili turkey burgers uses black beans to reduce fat while adding extra bulk and fiber. The beans are mashed with sauteed onion and garlic that have been spiced with ground cumin and minced jalapeno. This mixture then is combined with lean ground turkey (not the 99-percent lean kind!), and a few tablespoons of tomato paste for a touch of acidity and extra binding power. For more daring palates, you can jack up the heat by adding a few more chilies, a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce or using habaneros instead of the tamer jalapenos.

CHILI TURKEY BURGERS Start to finish: 35 minutes Servings: 4 1 teaspoon canola oil 1 small sweet onion, finely chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced 2 teaspoons ground cumin 3/4 cup canned black beans, rinsed 2 slices firm whole-wheat bread, torn into small pieces

2 tablespoons tomato paste 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 pound lean ground turkey 4 whole-grain hamburger buns Tomato salsa, for topping Shredded lettuce, for topping In a small nonstick skillet over medium, heat the oil. Add the onion and saute until lightly colored, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic, jalapeno and cumin. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a dish to cool. Heat a gas grill to medium-high or light a charcoal fire. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the beans, bread and tomato paste. Pulse until well mashed, then add the cilantro, salt, pepper and the reserved onion mixture. Pulse several more times, then transfer to a bowl. Add the ground turkey, mix well, then shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties. Grill the burgers until they register 165 F on an instant thermometer, about 5 minutes per side. Meanwhile, toast the buns on the edge of the grill. Serve the burgers topped with tomato salsa and shredded lettuce.

salad or burrito. Capsaicin, a compound found in cayenne and jalapeĂąo peppers, is suspected of stimulating metabolism by increasing the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release of certain stress hormones, such as adrenaline. A study in the British Journal of Nutrition investigated peppersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; effects on a group of Japanese women. The researchersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; findings showed a 30 percent increase in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s metabolism after eating a meal that included capsaicin-rich peppers. In another study reported in the Journal of Proteome Research, scientists fed high-fat diets with or without capsaicin to rats. The capsaicin-treated rats lost 8 percent of their body weight and showed changes in their levels of at least 20 key proteins found in fat. In addition, foods with capsaicin help you break a sweat, and the perspiration then helps you to lower your body temperature which is why people who live in hot climates often eat hot spicy foods. n Watch the Burned Meat. According to a study done at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, â&#x20AC;&#x153;HCAs form when muscle meats, such as beef, pork, poultry or fish, are cooked at high temperatures. HCAs are products of interaction between amino acids, which are the foundation of proteins, and the chemical creatine, which is stored in muscles. Past research has identified 17 HCAs that may contribute to cancer. Specifically, people who eat meat that is well done or cooked at high temperatures may have a higher risk of developing bladder cancer, according to the study. So make sure not to burn your meat. You also might want to add rosemary to your burgers. According to a recent study in the Journal of Food Science, the addition of rosemary to ground beef actually reduces cancercausing agents that can form upon cooking. n Ice Cream Advisory.

healthy groceries and serve nutritious food to your growing children. Good nutrition for children must start with the parents. Start by leaving the high-fat and highsugar foods at the store. If you never bring them into the house your kids will be less likely to eat them. Encourage them to drink water instead of soft drinks. Water is cheap, healthy, and can provide the proper hydration for your child on those hot summer days. When it comes to mealtime, try to establish a routine even if it is difficult at first. This means a set time for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Once you have a routine for meals and snacks, children will be on a consistent schedule and less likely to graze on junk food throughout the day. This will also help children become hungry at regular times each day. Also, plan for three meals and

ed) are a good choice at 40 calories. Frozen yogurt and soft-serve ice cream have the same number of calories per serving â&#x20AC;&#x201D; about 140. No-fat yogurt is about 110. Italian ices (100 calories per cup) are a better choice than gelato (about 500 calories per cup). Keep in mind that if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going for a cone, you should make it a wafer cone, which has 20 calories, as opposed to a sugar cone thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50 or 60 calories or a waffle cone at 100 to 160. Two tablespoons of sprinkles are about 110 calories. n Hike or Walk. Check out the following websites to get started: â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Trimble Outdoors â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Local Hikes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Trail Link n Try a Few Water Sports. Inland and coastal waterways occupy 181,518 square miles of the United States, which means a lot of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beach territory comes from our lakes, rivers and even ponds. A day at the beach, whether it be by the ocean or a lake, can provide a lot more exercise than youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think, so long as you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend the whole time on your towel. Try these beach/water sports and burn calories: Beach volleyball: 560 calories per hour; Frisbee: 210 calories per hour; ultimate Frisbee (sort of like soccer, football and rugby with a flying disc): 560 calories per hour; bodysurfing: 212 calories; Kadima (beach paddle tennis): 240 calories; kayaking: 352 calories; canoeing: 211 to 490 calories; rowing: 492 calories; water-skiing: 422 calories; snorkeling: 352 calories; water polo: 703 calories; water volleyball: 211 calories. n How about Going for a Swim? Leisurely swimming burns 422 calories per hour, but if you really push it and swim the butterfly stroke you can get up to 773 calories per hour. Even treading water can burn 281 calories per hour. n Jog in the Water. Yes, jogging in the water burns 562 calories per hour.

two snacks each day. Serve a vegetable or fruit at every meal. Fruits and vegetables are great for snack time as well. Now donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not trying to tell you never to give your kids the foods they love. Just try to apply some new healthy habits when preparing their meals and snacks. For example, if your kids love tacos, try extra lean beef or low fat turkey, instead of overly fatty meat. Use 2 percent cheese and low fat sour cream. Encourage them to add some veggies like lettuce and tomatoes. Also, explain to them why you are using these ingredients, and how they are better for their health. This will allow your children to see that healthy eating is not too difficult and can also taste great. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget about physical activity. The average child needs at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day. Parents should encourage children to exercise and participate in a variety of activities

n Exercising In the Heat? According to Dr. James Muntz, an internist with The Methodist Hospital in Houston, you should

watch for the following signs and conditions: â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Make sure you are sweating properly. If you stop sweating when you are exercising you are dehydrated. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; If you realize your pulse rate in the morning is 10 to 15 beats higher than your normal rate, you should take the day off from exercising. Normal pulse rate is around 70-90 beats minute. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Get acclimated to the heat as you begin an exercise regimen. Start off with 15 minutes and slowly work your way up to 45 minutes or an hour. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Forget about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;no pain, no gainâ&#x20AC;? mantra. Recognize warning signs and take the appropriate action immediately. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Avoid exercising between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., the hottest part of the day. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to diet by sweating. It will only result in water loss, not true weight loss. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Wear loose-fitting, light-colored clothing and sunscreen. n Barbecues and Picnics. For frankfurters, the best toppings are sauerkraut, good old ketchup, mustard and relish. Stay away from cheesy sauces and chili. As for burgers, make your own using the leanest beef you can find and toss in veggies such as mushrooms, onions and peppers to increase nutrients and lower the calorie content without reducing the volume. Watch out for barbecued ribs: They add up to more than 1,000 calories for six medium ribs. Just one 3.5-ounce fried chicken breast has about 250 calories, and one drumstick with skin has about 200 calories. Pasta salad? For 1 cup, depending on ingredients, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at 500-650 calories. Use 100 percent wholewheat pasta and light vinaigrette or low-calorie Italian dressing. Baked beans can be 300 calories per cup. Coleslaw can be more than 350 calories per cup. Use light or nonfat mayonnaise and make the slaw yourself. Use healthy, low-calorie marinades instead of oil and butter to flavor foods.

and sports. Most kids love to be active and play, sometimes they just need a little encouragement to do so. Urge them to put down the video games and get up off the couch to go outside and enjoy the outdoors. Remember, most of the habits they form when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re young will likely continue into adulthood.

So there you have it, a few simple tips to help your kids have a happy and healthy summer by eating smart and being physically active. Although these routines may take a little more time and preparation from parents, the health and happiness of your child will be more than worth the extra effort.

Get yourself an Aquabilt Treadmill, drop it in your pool (It weighs less than 50 pounds) and start working out. This underwater treadmill, which was originally developed for athletes recovering from injury, offers an amazing low-impact workout. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s non-motorized and simulates real walking motion. And since water has 12 times the density of air, resistance is greater than on a traditional land treadmill, which means that the effort and calories expended per minute are significantly greater, and results come that much more quickly. n Thirsty? We often mistake thirst for hunger, especially during the warm summer months. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat when what you really want is to drink. Always ask yourself if you are really hungry. And if you are thirsty, the best drinks are water, club soda, flavored iced coffee or unsweetened iced tea. Want something a bit stronger? Try this low-calorie drink recipe by Lisa Lillien, author of Hungry Girl Happy Hour: 75 Recipes for Amazingly Fantastic Guilt-Free Cocktails and Party Foods (St. Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Griffin, 2010).

else your calculations wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be accurate) in random locations within the irrigated area. Check the containers every 30 minutes until they average one inch. For straight-sided cans, you need only place a ruler in the container to measure water depth! When using a sprinkler, be sure to position it so you will not be watering the house or the driveway. In a vegetable garden, you may need to place the sprinkler on a small platform, so plants will not interfere. Use your sprinkler between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m. since environmental conditions will reduce evaporation during these times. Also, set a timer, so that you remember to shut off the sprinkler. Drip irrigation uses 30-50 percent less water than sprinkler irrigation. With this system, evaporation and runoff are reduced, since water is applied to the root zone. There are many different systems that can be used to water trees, shrubs, flowers, and vegetable gardens. For vegetable gardens, a soaker hose is recommended, as it is the least expensive and

in Lee County, we were thrilled to find a valuable resource to guide us through our first year. The classes offered at The McSwain Extension Center have been informative and useful, particularly for those who are new to gardening. The project has not been without its challenges; the first big rain of the season washed out several rows of beans and peas as we learned the drawbacks of planting in what can accurately be described as a flood zone! The learning curve goes onâ&#x20AC;Śand next year, some raised beds

easiest to use drip irrigation system. If you are interested in observing a drip irrigation setup, a system has been installed at the entrance of the McSwain Center. Hand watering is a low-cost, easy and efficient way to water plants. Use a spray nozzle that divides the spray into rain-sized droplets, so runoff is minimized. The goal is to apply 5 gallons of water per 10 square feet. Shrubs less than 4 feet high can be watered for one minute with a hand-held hose at a medium pressure. Increase the time by 15 seconds for each foot of height over four feet. Water is essential for proper plant growth. However, we can continue to be conservation-minded and have a beautiful garden by using proper watering techniques.

will be installed to offer additional protection for the more vulnerable areas of the garden. Planting has been ambitious, with over 60 tomato plants and 30 peppers, corn and beans, but the group has decided all excess produce will be donated to Haven House. Through this Satellite Gardening Project, we have not only reaped the benefits of organically grown vegetables, but also improved a vacant lot in the neighborhood and will help a local charity obtain much-needed food. Meanwhile, the bamboo encroaches yet again, the banana peppers are ripe for picking, and the garden callsâ&#x20AC;Ś
