Q&A: SHAWN WILLIAMS

ELECTION 2010

New chairman talks transparency, N.C. House school board’s role in education candidate By ALEXA MILAN amilan@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — July marked a change in leadership for the Lee County Board of Education when Shawn Williams was unanimously selected as the new chairman. Williams was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and served 13 years in the Marine Corps before joining civilian law

enforcement. He served as the Maysville, N.C., chief of police and as chief of police for Jones County Williams Schools. He has also been a pastor since 1985 and is currently the pastor at Fair Promise A.M.E. Zion Church

in Sanford. He joined the Lee County Board of Education in 2007. After working with Jones County Schools and serving as president of North Carolina D.A.R.E., Williams said he developed a firm commitment to education and bettering the lives of children. Williams sat down with The Herald to share his vision for the upcoming school year.

Q

: What ultimately led you to become involved with educa-

tion?

Williams: While I was chief of police of the city of Maysville, the superintendent of Jones County Schools asked me to teach D.A.R.E. I didn’t want to teach D.A.R.E. That

County ordinance says signs can’t be placed on public land until September By BILLY BALL bball@sanfordherald.com

SANFORD — Sanford City Councilman and N.C. House of Representatives GOP candidate Mike Stone is having to make some amends. Stone said volunteers are removing scores of campaign signs recently placed in violation of Lee County ordinances. The signs, placed in variStone ous places inside the county, stumped for Stone in his race for the District 51 seat in the N.C. House. But local officials say Lee County ordinances ban the placement of such signs more than 45 days prior to the No-

Almanac Today is Saturday, Aug. 7, the 219th day of 2010. There are 146 days left in the year. This day in history: On Aug. 7, 1782, Gen. George Washington created the Order of the Purple Heart, a decoration to recognize merit in enlisted men and non-commissioned officers. In 1789, the U.S. War Department was established by Congress. In 1882, the famous feud between the Hatfields of West Virginia and the McCoys of Kentucky erupted into full-scale violence. In 1942, U.S. and allied forces landed at Guadalcanal, marking the start of the first major allied offensive in the Pacific during World War II. In 1947, the balsa wood raft Kon-Tiki, which had carried a six-man crew 4,300 miles across the Pacific Ocean, crashed into a reef in a Polynesian archipelago; all six crew members reached land safely. In 1959, the United States launched the Explorer 6 satellite, which sent back images of the Earth. In 1960, the West African nation of Ivory Coast became independent of France. In 1964, Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, giving President Lyndon B. Johnson broad powers in dealing with reported North Vietnamese attacks on U.S. forces. In 1970, an attempt by San Quentin inmate James David McClain, accused of stabbing a guard, to escape his trial in Marin County, Calif. ended in a shootout with police that claimed the lives of McClain, two of three cohorts, and Judge Harold J. Haley, one of several hostages. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush ordered U.S. troops and warplanes to Saudi Arabia to guard the oil-rich desert kingdom against a possible invasion by Iraq.

office as well as other conservatives from the John Locke Foundation and the Civitas Institute. Predictably, there was not a lot of love to be found for U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge (D-Lillington) or N.C. Rep. Jimmy Love (D-Lee), two Democrats whom conservatives hope to defeat in November. AFP State Director Dallas Woodhouse told the crowd that Etheridge “scored a zero� on the group’s free enterprise

scorecard this year. He also pointed to Etheridge’s votes for health care reform and cap and trade legislation as proof that he is too liberal for the state’s 2nd District. “He’s not coming back for town hall meetings,� Woodhouse said. “I wouldn’t want to come back and look you in the eye, either.� He held no punches on Love, either, saying the Democrat “talks like Jesse Helms when he is home and votes like Nancy Pelosi when he’s in Raleigh,� as he railed against Love’s votes on everything from tax

measures to sweetened beverage legislation. The more than 100 people who filled the auditorium also heard former Lee County Commissioner Chad Adams, who now hosts a morning radio show based in Wilmington, go after Love and Etheridge, though he started with a jab at the Lee County Board of Commissioners’ decision to offer Caterpillar $900,000 in incentives to build a $31 million expansion in Sanford. Gov. Bev Perdue came to Sanford to announce Thursday that the company would build the

addition and bring 325 jobs to town. “Did everyone like writing an $18 check to Caterpillar yesterday?,� he asked the crowd. “Well that’s what you did. You should call the commissioners out on this stuff. It’s absurd to see what is going on in Washington and it’s absurd to see what is going on here.� Woodhouse closed the rally by addressing the Democratic party’s strategy for winning in November. He said they plan to ask voters if they want a return to the Bush administration’s poli-

cies, but after health care reform and tax hikes he said the Democrats have presided over, he would gladly return to those policies. “I am ready and willing to go back,� he said, as the crowd applauded. Each speaker finished their address with the mantra, “November is coming,� a nod to their optimism for success in this year’s general election. AFP Lee County chapter president Lloyd Jennings praised the turnout at the event, saying it was “much higher than expected.� He added that

conservatives are “very optimistic� about the upcoming vote. Sanford City Councilman Mike Stone, who is challenging Love for his seat in the State House, agreed, saying he had never seen this level of involvement among conservatives in his 12 years in politics. “It’s great to see so many people coming out and getting involved,� he said. “I’ve had so many people I don’t even know come by my store and pick up yard signs and say they are supporting me. One man came by today and picked up 100.�

Take 5

Sanford truly offers something for everyone. We have also gotten a tremendous amount of feedback from both locals and people who’ve newly arrived in the area. People love seeing what’s going on in this area and finding out about events or organizations that they’ve never heard of before. Before, even long-time community members thought they had to drive to Cary, Raleigh or Fayetteville for free, fun activities. Now we are showing everyone that they don’t have to leave Sanford to have a good time.

Sanford works because everyone is coming together to share and discuss what’s happening right here in town.

We help people get more involved in and feel more connected to a community that seems sleepy on the surface but is actually active and thriving. We can’t tell you how many times we’ve heard people say that nothing happens in Sanford, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The problem is people couldn’t see everything that was happening. Now they can. Also, we happen to love giving away local products and services as we feel this best showcases the skills and talents of our local workforce. For instance, currently we are giving away four tickets to the Second Annual Dancing with the Lee County Stars — an event which might be cost prohibitive to many people. Just by being in our network on Facebook, two people will have the chance to win tickets to this great local event — that’s a $300 value. Anyone can enter the give away, including those who are just learning about us. In these ways, we hope to show people in the community and those thinking about relocating here that the Sanford/Lee County area is a bustling, energetic, and fun place to live. You can get that small town charm with big city events and activities — if you know where to look for it, and SocialSanford is happy to point everyone in the right direction.

Man arrested after search found cocaine in home

SANFORD — Local narcotics investigators arrested a Sanford man Thursday after a search of his home turned up crack cocaine. The man, 34-year-old Marcus Antwan Wilson of 916 Peach Orchard Road in Sanford, was found with 18 dosage of crack cocaine, according to officials with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and the Sanford Police Department. Wilson was arrested after investigators executed a search warrant at 915 Oddfellow St. in Sanford. He is charged with possession with intent to sell cocaine and maintaining a dwelling to store drugs, law enforcement said. Wilson was placed in Lee County Jail under a $7,500 secured bond. His criminal history includes convictions on burglary, drug possession and assault charges. — by Billy Ball

HARNETT COUNTY

Campbell University explores starting a med school

BUIES CREEK (MCT) — Campbell University, a private institution in Harnett County, announced a study into whether to start a college of osteopathic medicine. The board of trustees voted today to proceed with a feasibility study over the next eight months. A charter class would begin in August 2013. Campbell leaders have considered starting a college of osteopathic

medicine for nearly a year, according to the university. The trustees today approved funding for a dean, consultants, architectural planning and other needs for the feasibility study. Osteopathic physicians are licensed to practice medicine in all 50 states, with the same privileges and responsibilities of medical doctors. More than 800 osteopathic physicians practice medicine in North Carolina, Campbell said. Colleges of osteopathic medicine are in Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia. They are at these national universities: Michigan State, University of Ohio and Oklahoma State. — Fayetteville Observer

CUMBERLAND COUNTY

Hotels see increase in occupancy rates FAYETTEVILLE (MCT) — Cumberland County hotels have been a little busier lately than in past summers. Overall occupancy in June was 70.4 percent, according to a report by Smith Travel Research of Hendersonville, Tenn. The last time occupancy in Cumberland County surpassed 70 percent was April 2008, but mostly it has been between 50 percent and 60 percent since spring 2005, Smith Travel said. John Meroski, president of the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, attributes much of the recent increase to soldiers and airmen returning from deployments, and their families staying over to greet them.

Q

: What is “SocialSanford,� and how did it get started? SocialSanford is an online source of information about educational, informational, and entertainment events happening in Sanford and Lee County. We started the project after noticing and lamenting the absence of a central place where people could find out about all the interesting and fun things happening our area before it was too late to take advantage of them.

Q

: Have you been surprised by the number and variety of events taking place here? Absolutely. We knew our community was busy, but we didn’t realize just how much is happening right here in Sanford and Lee County. When we first started, we thought we’d need to go out and find things to share, but that hasn’t been the case. Usually, at the end of the day, we find we didn’t have enough time to share all the great things going on.

Q

: Why have you chosen the platforms you’re using (blog, Facebook page, Twitter) to share goings-on around town? We chose Facebook as our main platform because so many people in our community — no matter their age or gender — use the site at least daily to stay informed. Using free platforms like Facebook, we can share information in a way that allows those who “like� us to see it and act on it without having to do a lot of extra work. We use the blog and Twitter to supplement and enhance what we share on Facebook. Truly, the best part of any social media, including Facebook and blogs, is that everyone can interact with each other. We no longer have a public square where people can gather to share their experiences and ideas, but we do have Facebook. We encourage people to post on our page, comment on anything we share, and let us know what we’re missing. Social-

Q

: For people who don’t have a Facebook page or a Twitter account...how would you recommend they access your information? While not everyone is on Facebook, most people do have access to the Internet. The best way to stay in the loop is to go to our blog and subscribe by email. To subscribe, you simply type your email address into the “via e-mail� box on the right and then press the “subscribe� button. This allows you to receive daily recaps of what we’ve shared on Facebook as well as any new blog posts — right in your inbox. And Google mail (gmail) users can add our events right to their calendar so they can look at it whenever is most convenient for them. We are also looking into other avenues for sharing information. For instance, we may soon offer ways for people to have relevant information on a weekly or monthly basis delivered right to their actual mail boxes. And we’d love to hear other ways people would like to access our information.

Q

: Why do you think SocialSanford has become so popular with community members?

State is losing too many babies at birth Winston-Salem Journal

T

he struggling economy has affected almost every facet of our lives. The worst part of it is the millions of Americans who are out of work and have no health-care insurance. This could worsen an already tragic and persistent problem in North Carolina — the loss of babies at birth. “Normally, when the economy goes bad, infant mortality goes up, even when your service system is in place,” said Tom Vitaglione, the chairman of the Child Fatality Task Force in Raleigh. North Carolina’s service system has been severely hit by the economy. The task force says that about $10 million in services to

fight infant mortality was cut from the state budget for 2009-2010. The new budget simply holds the line from the last one; none of the cuts were restored. That could mean trouble for North Carolina, which has one of the highest infant-mortality rates in the country, 8.2 deaths for every 1,000 live births in 2008. Forsyth County reached an 11-year high of 12 deaths for every 1,000 live births — the highest rate among urban counties in the state. That’s unacceptable for a county nationally known for its medical advances. Rates for 2009 should come out this month. Those rates may have been negatively impacted by the economy. Or to put it bluntly, poverty and lack of services may have

led to more babies dying. And as you read these words, the effects of the 2009-2010 cuts are being felt by expectant mothers statewide. “You just wait for the fallout,” said Debbie Mason of the Forsyth County Infant Mortality Reduction Coalition. The 2009-2010 cuts included a cut in reimbursement rates for providers under Medicaid, including OB/GYNs, causing many providers to stop serving Medicaid patients; elimination of a regional outreach program that provided education for high-risk pregnant women about the care of infants; elimination of a bilingual resource line that answered up to 40,000 calls annually requesting help with pregnancy-related issues; and

cuts to a statewide public-education program aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles for women of childbearing age. The Forsyth County health director, Tim Monroe, said the cuts are troubling, but it’s difficult to predict what effect they will have on infant-mortality rates. The programs cut, while needed, are “finger-in-the-dike” measures, he said, and what’s really needed to combat infant mortality are efforts that look at what he sees as its causes. Monroe thinks the stress of institutional racism is one of those causes, as well as poverty disproportionately affecting black families. In Forsyth County in 2008,

there were 25.3 deaths of minority infants for every 1,000 live births, in stark contrast to 6.4 deaths of white infants per 1,000 births. Many people say the issue of infant mortality boils down to personal responsibility, not race or poverty. It’s true that too many pregnant women continue to smoke, drink, have poor eating habits and lose control of their weight. It’s hard to persuade some of these women to improve their health. But others want to improve, but lack access to quality health care. There’s plenty of work to go around, and it calls for people of widely varying talents. If we don’t think creatively and work harder we’ll continue to lose more babies.

Trials may help Dems

D

emocrats will “drain the swamp of Washington” if they win control of the House. So promised California Rep. Nancy Pelosi before the 2006 election that led to her becoming speaker of the House. Now that two Democratic reps have been charged with serious ethical lapses, a chorus of Republican operatives is accusing Pelosi of breaking that vow. Our political prophets have largely picked up the tune. A difficult midterm election for Democrats has just become tougher, they say with near unanimity. But suppose these predictions are off by 180 degrees. Suppose voters see these trials as evidence not of an unattended swamp, but of murky waters being drained. The Office of Congressional Ethics, which Pelosi helped create, is leading the charge. And even the most hardened partisan can’t believe that all the bad behavior happens across the aisle. That the Democrats under the microscope — New York Rep. Charles B. Rangel and California Rep. Maxine Waters — are both black only underscores the seriousness with which the Democratic leadership supports a new set of standards for conduct. AfricanAmericans comprise an important Democratic voting bloc. Asked whether these investigations will hurt Democrats’ prospects in the midterms, Pelosi properly responded, “The chips will have to fall where they may politically.” For the record, Rangel and Waters both deny any wrongdoing. Same goes for Republican Sen. John Ensign of Nevada, who is also under investigation, by the Senate Ethics Committee and the Justice Department. ... All three assert that their alleged misdeeds amounted to nothing more than congressional business that everyone does. ... Nope. The ethics dock is not going to be a Democrats-only platform. ... Pelosi deserves a medal for political bravery — and for political smarts. She is battling the (exaggerated) perception among many white voters that Democrats extend special protection to minorities. ... African-Americans, meanwhile, should note that the two congressmen who resigned this year under charges of improper behavior are both white. ... Going after alleged ethics violations in one’s own party is hard work politically and emotionally. When supporters argue that the defendants have been singled out for doing “business as usual,” Democratic leaders should hang tough and respond that business as usual is no longer acceptable. What is owed Rangel, Waters, Ensign and Rep. Peter Visclosky, an Indiana Democrat also under investigation? A fair process. Are the current inquiries more dangerous for Democrats come November than for Republicans? Again, that’s what most pundits say. But Americans are a lot more perceptive than some give them credit for — and political predictions can be very, very wrong.

To the Editor: To Herald sports writer Ryan Sards — thank you for the awesome column you wrote in Thursday’s paper, “The trip that saved my life.” I don’t think I have ever read a newspaper article or column with so much excitement as I did Thursday. Thanks for being willing to claim the name of Christ in a very public manner — it is so refreshing to see someone in your position take a stand as you have done. I am overjoyed that you have accepted Christ into your life. Welcome to the family, my good brother in Christ. I am so thankful for a local newspaper that will allow a column like yours to be printed on the front page of the sports section. Your column was very well written and did not seem to pull any punches — thank you for your boldness in sharing a very personal part of your life. It has been a true blessing for me, and I know many others in the community, to have been able to experience with you the excitement of accepting Christ into your life. THADD McELREATH Sanford

Elderly woman thankful for man who stopped to help when car stalled To the Editor: On July 17, at approximately 1:55 p.m., I was driving my car. As I entered Smith Level Road from Woodward Way on my way to the Stratford Assisted Living Facility, in Chapel Hill, the car stopped. I was unable to start it. A white car traveling in the opposite direction stopped and two young men got out, and came across the road to help a stranded 76-year-old lady. They told me to put the car in neutral and they pushed it to the shoulder of the road. Mr. Clements (I have forgotten his first name) used his cell phone to call Brown’s Auto. He and his friend stayed with me until help arrived. I truly appreciate their kindness on that very hot day. In a world where so many people are always in a hurry, it was so good of these two young men to take time to help me. God bless them! NETTIE WILSON Chapel Hill

Local

6A / Saturday, August 7, 2010 / The Sanford Herald We want to make sure that the public knows what’s going on.

Williams Continued from Page 1A

was not really my thing. But I did, and I saw that there was much more to teaching D.A.R.E. and involving law enforcement in the lives of children. That really became a mindset change for me. My passion is for children and seeing that the playing field is even for all children.

Q

: What are some qualities you bring to the chairman position? Williams: One of the big keys for me is to communicate. I’m a people person, so being able to communicate with people from all sides is something I think I’m very strong at and will enhance the board.

Q

: What are some things you think the board does well and some things you want to improve? Williams: Because I’m a seated board member, I felt we were doing very well. We went through some rough times when we were without a superintendent, but since getting Dr. Moss and the vision that we share, we’ve tried to make sure that every child in the system is growing. Our policies are a reflection of our vision. What became a sounding cry to me during the election was that there was a segment that felt we were not communicating. So one of the things I’m doing is appointing an ad hoc committee to look at what we’ve been doing in terms of communication and where we need to go.

Q

: What do you think the role of a school board should be?

Williams: I think it’s pretty much statute defined. Our position is we set policy. We set the budget and send it to the county commissioner, and we hire and fire the superintendent. That’s pretty much our domain. If we follow that domain, if our policies are right, if our budget is in line and we have a good superintendent, the school board is doing statutorily what we’re supposed to do. I think there’s a misnomer on what the school board does. We hire the superintendent and the superintendent then takes on the personnel issues and makes sure he has people in place. I think a lot of people think that the school board runs the school. We do in a sense by hiring and firing the superintendent, but we support him as he moves forward our vision.

Q

: What would you say are some of Lee County Schools’ biggest strengths and weaknesses? Williams: We’re a small community. A lot of the teachers are from here. I think the diversity in our schools is an extremely good thing. If you go in any school, you’ll see an array of people. I think it helps students, and it helps us grow as a community. But I’m not going to be 100 percent satisfied until we have a 100 percent graduation rate. I’m not going to be 100 percent satisfied until all of our schools are Schools of

Excellence. So I think we still have room to grow. I’m an optimist, but I would love to see the day that school becomes so intriguing and so challenging that students say, “I really want to be here.”

Q

: What was it like for the board when you were in the process of finding a new superintendent? How do you think Jeffrey Moss has performed? Williams: I had just joined the board, and it was something I wasn’t expecting. The process was a little overwhelming. You heard a lot of ideas from the applicants of what we could do, and we had to see out of all those ideas what would fit Lee County. The beauty of picking Jeff Moss was that it became seamless. Since he’s come, I think he’s had a great vision. We have meshed very well together. We listen to him and he listens to us. We have open dialogue. He has financial expertise that has helped us through this budget crunch. He has a wealth of knowledge and a vision that every child can succeed. I think we’ll see a great change in our system for the better.

Q

: What are some of your primary goals as chairman?

Williams: My primary goal is at the end of my year the community has a better feel about the system and the school board. I think that we’ve done a great job, but I think there’s room for improvement. At the end of the year I want to say this is where we were, and this is where we are now. My goal is that you’ll see a strong board working together.

Academically, I want to see our scores be better next year than they were this year. We all didn’t make AYP, so my goal is naturally that we don’t only want growth in all of our schools but we want all schools to make AYP. I want it to be said that there are high expectations in our system. At the end of the year I want to look back and say that Bill Tatum brought us a long way and that we’ve just made another step forward. One thing I would like to see is more public at our meetings. When I sit in the seat and I look out and all I see is staff, then that says to me, how much does the public want to be involved? There ought to be public input. That holds us to a check and balance. I think it would help eliminate some of the rumor control. If you hear it from the horse’s mouth, then you know. To me, the greatest asset we have in Lee County is our children. So I would love to see a greater public presence at our meetings. And I don’t think it’s just a Lee County problem. It’s something that happens everywhere. People tend to rally when something goes wrong, but when everything is going smoothly, people tend to sit back. But the public should still be there. We need their input.

Q

: Some parents have expressed that in the past they’ve felt the board hasn’t been as open as it could be. How would you promote an open board that keeps parents involved? Williams: In traveling to different associations, Durham does something with parents that I’m hoping the ad hoc committee will go and see. Prior to a board meeting, each school has a segment of parents that will eat lunch or dinner with the board. Whether or not it’s through a dinner process like that, there needs to be consistently an open dialogue between board and community, and sometimes it’s not at a board meeting that that can take place. We’re looking at what other kind of forum we

could have a sit-down talk. We can’t make any changes outside a board meeting, but I think sometimes people just want to talk. They want to make sure they’re heard. Whatever position you’re in, you can’t please everybody. And sometimes when people air their thoughts and nothing changes, they think you haven’t heard them. We have to think of 9,600 kids and what will work for all 9,600 kids. I’ll honestly admit that when I first heard (the complaints), I was defensive. But that’s because you’re sitting there and not being objective. My philosophy is that it doesn’t matter how well you’re doing. If the people don’t know that you’re doing well, then it really doesn’t matter. We have to make sure they have that opportunity.

Q

: Is there any truth to the rumor that your church could be relocating you in the relatively near future? If so, what would happen to your position as chairman? Williams: The A.M.E. Zion Church is a church where you are appointed every year. We go to an annual conference, and at the bishop’s discretion, you can be moved. Every pastor in our denomination has that possibility. But the last church I was at, I was there 14 years. My ministry has always been to be a builder and strengthen the community where I’m at. I saw my bishop recently, so I think if moving was a possibility I would have heard it by now. I’m not saying it can’t happen, but I really don’t believe it will happen. If the Lord moves me, it’s in the Lord’s hands. If I were moved, the Board of Education would continue on and appoint someone to take my seat, and they would go on seamlessly. We’re a board that no one person on that board makes or breaks it. If that happened, I’d be able to sleep comfortably knowing someone else would take that position and take it to the next level. But it’s just a rumor. I don’t think I’m going anywhere.

vember election. Under those regulations, Stone would not be able to begin posting his campaign signs on public land or rightof-way property until mid-September. Lee County Board of Elections Director Nancy Kimble said she had received a number of complaints regarding the signs, even though county planning leaders are charged with enforcing those ordinances. “I can’t even tell him to take them down,” Kimble said, adding she was assured by county planners that the issue would be resolved. Kimble said the campaign placards were spotted roadside on U.S. 421 and Deep River Road, in addition to other locations. Stone said a team of campaign volunteers were removing the signs Thursday and Friday. He said they were only posted outside of Sanford city limits because he was aware of city regulations against the signs, but not the county ordinances. Stone said signs willingly placed by campaign supporters on their personal property are not in violation of the ordinance. Local Democrats supporting Stone’s opponent, incumbent Rep. Jimmy Love, were fired up about the contraband signs this week, but Stone dismissed that criticism as overblown. “I’m sure my opponent wants to make an issue out of the signs,” he said. “But I think there are bigger issues in Raleigh.” According to some conservative polling efforts, Stone is expected to run a tight race with Love this fall. Stone said the outcry over the signs is an indication of the interest in this race. “In all my electioneering, I’ve never seen anything like it,” he said. Love could not be reached for comment on this story.

MORRISVILLE

STATE BRIEFS Man accused of giving friend bag of human bones

DURHAM (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A North Carolina man is accused of handing a bag of human bones to a friend and asking for help in disposing of them. Multiple media outlets reported Friday that 32-year-old Michael Charles Dorman of Mebane has been charged in Durham County District Court with concealing or failure to report a death. Dorman is currently in Durham County jail. Public defender Lawrence Campbell respresents Dorman and declined to comment on the case. A search warrant says Dorman told a friend he had killed a woman in Durham and needed to dispose of her remains. Orange County sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies say they observed Dorman hand a bag containing human bones to his friend.

Report: psychiatric patients wait days for help

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A new report says people needing treatment at psychiatric hospitals in North Carolina have to wait for nearly three days on average in emergency rooms and crisis centers. The Wake County chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness says in a report released Friday that in the first six months of the year, over 3,000 patients needing psychiatric care were put on wait lists. On average, they spent more than 66 hours in emergency departments, compared to an average wait of less than five hours for patients with non-psychiatric ailments. State Health and Human Services Secretary Lanier Cansler says the state is making progress in providing psychiatric care, but that limited funding is still a problem.

25-year-old Cody Richmond fired a 12-gauge shotgun 30 times at officers, who in turn fired 60 bullets at the suspect. Richmond had a minor wound from a bullet fragment and was treated at a local hospital before being jailed. He faces 10 counts of attempted murder along with other charges. It could not be immediately determined Friday if Richmond has a lawyer. Police say the standoff took place late Thursday and early Friday, after Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother called 911 to say her son was drunk and carrying a weapon.

Tar Heels facial tattoo links man in drug case GASTONIA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A North Carolina manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to tattoo his love for the University of North Carolina Tar Heels on his cheek made him easy to describe to police. The Gaston Gazette reported Friday that Donald Shaun Black pleaded guilty to conspiracy to sell drugs after a witness described the tattoo to police. Prosecutor Bill Stetzer told the judge a man involved in a drug deal gone bad in April gave a description of a man with the UNC facial art. Black was given a suspended sentence and was placed probation after a plea deal that dropped other charges.

Two tobacco Man charged companies settle in pregnant bribery charges womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death By ALAN ZIBEL AP Business Writer

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Two American tobacco companies are paying nearly $30 million to settle charges that they bribed foreign officials to get lucrative overseas tobacco sales contracts. The companies, Universal Corp. of Richmond, Va., and Alliance One International of Morrisville, faced civil and criminal charges from the Securities and Exchange Commission and Justice Department, the government said Friday. Universal was accused of bribing officials in Thailand, Malawi and Mozambique. Alliance One is accused of bribing officials in Thailand, China, Greece, Indonesia, and Kyrgyzstan. To settle the charges, Alliance One has agreed to pay a criminal fine of $9.45 million and return $10 million in profits. Universal has agreed to pay a criminal fine of $4.4 million and return

$4.5 million in profits. Alliance One could not be reached for comment. Universal Corp. said in a statement that the company voluntarily reported the problems to authorities and that it has cooperated with the investigation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have absolutely no tolerance for this type of activity,â&#x20AC;? CEO George C. Freeman III said in a statement. Universal said that it had already put aside funds to cover the settlement amount, so it will not have to log a charge for its fiscal 2011 results. Universal will use an independent corporate monitor to look over its accounting practices and will change or take up new policies as needed, the company said. The Justice Department will not prosecute Universal if it follows terms of an agreement between the department and the company for the next three years, Universal said.

HENDERSONVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A man who said he was shocked to learn he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the father of his girlfriendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s child appeared in Hendersonville District Court Friday after being charged in her death. Jermaine Deprie Glover, 37, made a first court appearance on charges of first-degree murder, for which he could face the death penalty. Glover is accused of killing Misty Lynn Carter, 21, whose burned body was found by a driver along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Buncombe County on Oct. 19. An autopsy found she died of blunt force trauma to the head, and that she was six weeks pregnant. The Asheville Citizen-Times interviewed Glover after Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body was found, and he told the newspaper he had learned he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the father of her child. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a shocker,â&#x20AC;? he said at the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to think.â&#x20AC;? Glover does not yet have an attorney, according to the Henderson County Court clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. He is being held without bond in the Henderson County Detention Center. After the brief court appearance on Friday, members of Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family told the Times-News of Burlington they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprised Glover has been charged with the crime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They met through a neighbor of ours,â&#x20AC;? Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, Crystal Branson, told the newspaper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t my sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s type. She liked clean-cut men, and he was much older than her.â&#x20AC;?

NATION BRIEFS

Investigators look for evidence underwater

NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Now that BP appears to have vanquished its ruptured well, authorities are turning their attention to gathering evidence from what could amount to a crime scene at the bottom of the sea. The wreckage â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including the failed blowout preventer and the blackened, twisted remnants of the drilling platform â&#x20AC;&#x201D; may be Exhibit A in the effort to establish who is responsible for the biggest peacetime oil spill in history. And the very companies under investigation will be in charge of recovering the evidence. Hundreds of investigators canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get their hands on evidence. The FBI is conducting a criminal investigation, the Coast Guard is seeking the cause of the blast, and lawyers are pursuing millions of dollars in damages for the families of the 11 workers killed,

the dozens injured and the thousands whose livelihoods have been damaged. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The items at the bottom of the sea are a big deal for everybody,â&#x20AC;? said Stephen Herman, a New Orleans lawyer for injured rig workers and others. BP will surely want a look at the items, particularly if it tries to shift responsibility for the disaster onto other companies, such as Transocean, which owned the oil platform, Halliburton, which supplied the crew that was cementing the well, and Cameron International, maker of the blowout preventer. BP and Transocean â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which could face heavy penalties if found to be at fault â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have said they will raise some of the wreckage if it can be done without doing more damage to the oil well. That would give the two companies responsibility for gathering up the

very evidence that could be used against them. But the federal government has said it simply doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the know-how and the deep-sea equipment that the drilling industry has. And it said the operation will be closely supervised by the Coast Guard. Lawyers will be watching, too, to make sure the companies donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything untoward, said Brent Coon, an attorney for one of the thousands of plaintiffs seeking damages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think they would do something in front of their own mother if they could,â&#x20AC;? Coon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the reality is there are a lot of eyes watching them and a lot of smart scientists who would know if they did anything they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t supposed to.â&#x20AC;? The crisis in the Gulf appeared to be drawing to a close this week when BP plugged up the top of the blown-out well with mud and then sealed it with cement. BP Senior Vice President Kent Wells said crews plan to resume drilling Sunday night on a relief

well more than two miles below the seafloor that will be used to inject mud and cement just above the source of the oil, thereby sealing off the well from the bottom, too. The two wells should hook up between Aug. 13 and Aug. 15, Wells said. In other developments Friday, BP said it might drill again someday into the same undersea reservoir of oil, which is still believed to hold nearly $4 billion worth of crude. That prospect is unlikely to sit well with Gulf Coast residents furious at the oil giant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots of oil and gas here,â&#x20AC;? Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to think about what to do with that at some point.â&#x20AC;? Also Friday, BP said Suttles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who has spent more than three months managing BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response efforts on the Gulf â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is returning to his day job in Houston. Mike Utsler, a vice president who has been running BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s command post in Houma, La., since April, will replace him.

HP CEO steps down in wake of sexual harassment claim SAN FRANCISCO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Hewlett-Packard Co. said CEO Mark Hurd is stepping down following a sexual-harassment probe that found other violations of company standards. HP said Friday that Hurd decided to leave after the investigation into a sexual-harassment claim made against him and the company by a former HP contractor. The probe concludes that the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sexual-harassment policy was not violated, but that its standards of business conduct were. After the announcement, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shares dropped more than 8 percent in after-hours trading. In a statement, Hurd said that during the investigation he â&#x20AC;&#x153;realized there were instances in which I did not live up to the standards and principles of trust, respect and integrity that I have espoused at HP.â&#x20AC;? He added that he believed it would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;difficult to continue as an effective leader at HP.â&#x20AC;?

Rumors circulate on judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal life, ability to rule SAN FRANCISCO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chief U.S. Judge Vaughn Walker has always been characterized as a conservative with libertarian leanings. But after he struck down Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voter-approved gay marriage ban this week, he was accused by some of being something else entirely: a gay activist. Rumors have circulated for months that Walker is gay, fueled by the blogosphere and a San Francisco Chronicle column that stated his sexual orienta-

tion was an â&#x20AC;&#x153;open secretâ&#x20AC;? in legal and gay activism circles. Walker himself hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t addressed the speculation, and he did not respond to a request for comment by The Associated Press on Thursday. Lawyers in the case, including those defending the ban, say the judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sexuality â&#x20AC;&#x201D; gay or straight â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was not an issue at trial and will not be a factor on appeal. But that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped a public debate that exploded in the wake of the 66-yearold juristâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wednesday decision. Most of the criticism has come from opponents of same-sex marriage.

Scientists to rotate Confederate sub off SC coast NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A decade after the raising of the Confederate submarine Hunley off the South Carolina coast, the cause of the sinking of the first sub in history to sink an enemy warship remains a mystery. But scientists are edging closer. On Friday, scientists announced one of the final steps that should help explain what happened after the hand-cranked sub and its eight-man crew rammed a spar with a powder charge into the Union blockade ship Housatonic off Charleston in February, 1864. Early next year the 23-ton sub will be delicately rotated to an upright position, exposing sections of hull not examined in almost 150 years. When the Hunley sank, it was buried in sand listing 45 degrees to starboard. It was kept that way as slings were put beneath it and it was raised and brought to a conservation lab in North Charleston a decade ago.

Is violent Eminem song a teaching tool? By JOCELYN NOVECK AP National Writer

NEW YORK — It’s hard to forget the haunting photo that leaked out early last year: Pop star Rihanna, her elegant face bruised and battered after a violent assault by her then-boyfriend, R&B singer Chris Brown. Now, she’s appearing in something else shocking, though thankfully fictional: Rapper Eminem’s chart-topping “Love the Way You Lie,” a song (and now video) that graphically depicts a physically abusive relationship. And the debate has begun: Is the song a treatise against (or apology for) domestic violence, or an irresponsible glorification of it? Or, is it something uncomfortable in between? And how exactly to explain the role of Rihanna, who has said she aims to help young people learn the lessons of her ordeal? One thing is not in question: The song is a hit, sitting atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart. And well before the edgy video debuted Thursday evening, the lyrics were enough to get plenty of attention. “Just gonna stand there and watch me burn,” Rihanna sings repeatedly, to an undeniably catchy tune. “But that’s all right

Suddenly there’s pushing, pulling hair, scratching, clawing, biting: “Throw ’em down, pin ’em. So lost in the moments when you’re in ’em.” The girl, acted in the video by actress Megan

Fox, tries to leave. The guy, played by Dominic Monaghan, promises it won’t happen again. But then he admits he’s lying: “I apologize even though I know it’s lies.” Rihanna wasn’t available for comment on the song, her publicist said in an e-mail message. But the 22-year-old singer, who last year won a Glamour Woman of the Year award, partly for her stand on domestic violence, has been quoted as saying the song “was something that needed to be done and the way he (Eminem) did it was so clever. He pretty much just broke down the cycle of

domestic violence.” As for Eminem, known for his turbulent relationship with exwife Kim Mathers — his song, “Kim,” graphically fantasized about murdering her — he has said he enlisted Rihanna because she was the perfect person to pull the song off. But can it be a teaching tool? That depends on the context in which young people see and hear it, says Marjorie Gilberg, executive director of Break the Cycle, a group that fights violence among teens. “The danger is that pop culture defines our social norms,” says Gilberg. “We don’t want the message of this song to be that this kind of relationship is acceptable. So this song has to be viewed in the context of real information from adults, like parents and teachers.” Of course, that depends on whether listeners even focus on the lyrics. Allison Churchill, an Eminem fan in Palm Coast, Fla., says she has friends who never really hear the lyrics to songs they like — “they just like a good beat.” She herself listened a number of times to “Love the Way You Lie” before she realized what it was saying. “I thought, ’I can’t sing along to THAT,”’ says Churchill, 31.

Emma Thompson gets Hollywood sidewalk star LOS ANGELES (AP) — British star Emma Thompson has been enshrined in concrete outside the historic Pig ’n Whistle pub on Hollywood Boulevard. The 51year-old actress Thompson was presented with a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame on Friday, two weeks ahead of the Aug. 20 release of her latest film, “Nanny McPhee Returns.” “Nanny” castmate Maggie Gyllenhaal and “House” star Hugh Laurie, whom Thompson dated when they attended England’s University of Cambridge, were on hand for the midday ceremony. Thompson won an Academy Award for her leading role as Margaret Schlegel in 1992’s “Howard’s End.” She won a second Oscar in 1996 for best adapted screenplay for “Sense and Sensibility,” for which she also received a best actress nomination.

candidacy. In an interview with The Associated Press, McMahon says the wrestling empire’s detractors have taken snippets of footage out of context, such as a necrophilia scene and one in which a woman licks his shoes and barks like a dog. McMahon says opponents of his wife, McMahon Linda McMahon, did not provide the “soap opera elements” that led to those moments. He concedes the WWE has made some mistakes. He says the company two years ago decided to move away from “shock TV” to more family-friendly scenes. Linda McMahon, former CEO of WWE, faces two opponents in the Aug. 10 Republican primary.

Rosie O’Donnell gets daytime TV on Oprah’s channel LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rosie O’Donnell is returning to daytime TV with a talk show on Oprah Winfrey’s new network. Winfrey announced the show Thursday, calling O’Donnell a true original who brings passion to everything she does. O’Donnell hosted a syndicated series, “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” from 1996 to 2002 and won six Emmy Awards for it. The OWN network says viewers can expect “a fun, uplifting show with Ms. O’Donnell’s playful and energetic style.” O’Donnell told The Associated Press in March that she was planning an uplifting talk show that would make a difference in people’s lives and build on what Winfrey has done with her show. O’Donnell joined ABC’s daytime talk show “The View” in 2006, but left after a tumultuous season that included a feud with Donald Trump and prickly exchanges with some of her co-hosts, along with higher ratings.

HEALTH CARE OVERHAUL

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Twenty states and the nation’s most influential small business lobby said Friday a federal court in Florida must hear their challenge to President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul because they face imminent harm from its mandates. The Justice Department in June asked a federal judge to dismiss their lawsuit, saying the U.S. District Court in Pensacola lacks subjectmatter jurisdiction over some of the lawsuit’s claims. They also said other parts of the lawsuit failed to state claims upon which relief can be granted. The states, the National Federation of Independent Business and several individual

insurance and fine those who don’t. “If Congress can regulate the failure to have health care insurance coverage, it can equally regulate the ’failure’ to meet any other requirement it chooses to impose,” Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum wrote in the response. Though the health care mandate does not take effect until 2014, the states will suffer now from spending more resources on an expanding Medicaid enrollment and from losing sovereignty “to enact statutes or state constitutional provisions to protect their state citizens from compulsion in their healthcare choices,” McCollum wrote. Obama’s health insurance requirements also would impose significant costs on small businesses, he said.

The court must hear the case to preserve individual liberties granted through the Constitution, said Karen Harned, executive director of the Small Business Legal Center of the National Federation of Independent Business. “The federal government does not have the authority to regulate an individual’s decision to do nothing. If they did, then they could force us to purchase any product they want,” she said. In a statement, Harned said the government’s motion to dismiss was based on “political rhetoric and flimsy legal arguments” and was an attempt to distract the court from evaluating the case’s constitutional issues. McCollum, a Republican candidate for governor, is leading the legal challenge. Other states that have joined the lawsuit are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Idaho, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Washington. Virginia’s attorney general separately sued the government. A federal judge denied the Justice Department’s motion to have that case dismissed, saying the overhaul raises complex constitutional issues.

Third month of weak hiring signals long slog ahead WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation isn’t creating nearly enough jobs to reduce persistently high unemployment. For the third straight month, the private sector hired cautiously in July. And those meager gains in the job market were nearly wiped out by tens of thousands of cuts at all levels of government. Making matters worse: Many of the new jobs that are being created do not pay well enough to significantly jump-start spending by shoppers and stimulate the broader economy. The unemployment rate was stuck at 9.5 percent for the second straight month, the Labor Department said Friday. Analysts said it would probably climb back into double digits because the private sector is not creating jobs fast enough. Private employers reported a net gain of 71,000 jobs for July — far below the 200,000 it takes for the unemployment rate just to hold steady and keep pace with the growing work force.

FBI says new al-Qaida leader lived in U.S. MIAMI (AP) — A suspected al-Qaida operative who lived for more than 15 years in the U.S. has become chief of the terror network’s global operations, the FBI says, marking the first time a leader so intimately familiar with American society has been placed in charge of planning attacks. Adnan Shukrijumah, 35, has taken over a posi-

tion once held by 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who was captured in 2003, Miamibased FBI counterterrorism agent Brian LeBlanc told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview. That puts him in regular contact with al-Qaida’s senior leadership, including Osama bin Laden, LeBlanc said. Shukrijumah and two other leaders were part of an “external operations council” that designed and approved terrorism plots and recruits, but his two counterparts were killed in U.S. drone attacks, leaving Shukrijumah as the de facto chief and successor to Mohammed — his former boss.

CIA whisked 9/11 figures from Gitmo before court ruling

WASHINGTON (AP) — A white, unmarked Boeing 737 landed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, before dawn on a CIA mission so secretive, many in the nation’s war on terrorism were kept in the dark. Four of the nation’s most highly valued terrorist prisoners were aboard. They arrived at Guantanamo on Sept. 24, 2003, years earlier than the U.S. has ever disclosed. Then, months later, they were just as quietly whisked away before the Supreme Court could give them access to lawyers. The transfer allowed the U.S. to interrogate the detainees in CIA “black sites” for two more years without allowing them to speak with attorneys or human rights observers or challenge their detention in U.S. courts. Had they remained at the Guantanamo Bay prison for just three more months, they would have been afforded those rights.

ALABAMA NO.1 IN 1ST COACHES POLL

North Carolina coach Butch Davis works with his team during the their first day of NCAA college football practice in Chapel Hill on Friday.

TYSONS CORNER, Va. (AP) — Defending national champion Alabama is No. 1 atop the USA Today preseason coaches’ poll. Boise State will begin the season ranked No. 5. The Broncos, like Alabama, finished last season 14-0. They beat TCU in the Fiesta Bowl. The Crimson Tide got 55 of 59 possible first place votes. The other four went to Ohio State, which is No. 2 in the newspaper’s ranking. Florida is third, followed by Texas, which lost to Alabama in the BCS title game in January. Virginia Tech was sixth, followed by TCU, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Iowa to round out the top 10. Nos. 11-15 are Oregon, Wisconsin, Miami, Penn State and Pittsburgh. They were followed by LSU, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Arkansas and Florida State, which will be without Bobby Bowden as coach for the first time in 35 years.

Austin, Little take part at practice By AARON BEARD AP Sports Writer

CHAPEL HIL — Marvin Austin and Greg Little were on the practice field Friday just like the rest of their North Carolina teammates for the start of preseason workouts. It’s unclear whether they’ll be able to join the Tar Heels less than a month from now for the season opener — or beyond. The pair at the center of an NCAA investigation into whether they received improper benefits from agents didn’t talk with reporters after the afternoon practice. The rest of the players and coach Butch Davis have chosen to focus on anything other than the uncertainty following Austin, a senior defensive tackle projected as a high NFL draft

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The bicycle maker that sponsors Lance Armstrong’s racing team is cooperating with federal authorities investigating the seven-time Tour de France champion and others in cycling, a company spokesman said Friday. Investigators requested documents from Trek Bicycle Corp. early in July and company officials complied fully, said Bill Mashek, a spokesman for the Waterloo, Wis.-based company. He declined to say what those documents were. “One of the things investigators are seeking is for us not to comment,” he said. Armstrong has had a long relationship the company, and Trek sponsors Armstrong’s RadioShack racing team. Trek is one of the world’s largest bicycle manufacturers, making bikes for racing, commuting and mountain biking. Armstrong rode Trek bicycles in his Tour de France wins.

MIAMI (AP) — The University of Miami is being investigated for possible NCAA violations. UM issued a statement Friday, saying the investigation surrounds “impermissible text messages and telephone calls to prospective student-athletes.” The university conducted an audit and reported its findings to the NCAA. A joint investigation has been launched. The university says it will take the appropriate steps to ensure full compliance with NCAA rules and regulations. The statement doesn’t list which sports were involved.

By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

AKRON, Ohio — Phil Mickelson is closing in on No. 1. The first step is to make up a one-shot deficit against Retief Goosen, the 36-hole leader Friday at the Bridgestone Invitational. Mickelson Looking more inevitable is Mickelson finally supplanting Tiger Woods atop the world ranking. Goosen turned bogey into birdie by chipping in from 25 yards off the green at No. 4, sending him on his way to a 4-under 66 that gave him a one-shot lead over Mickelson and Justin Leonard (66) going into the weekend at Firestone. Even as Goosen led another assault on par in soft conditions, Woods continued to look as ordinary as ever. The seven-time champion at Firestone hit only three fairways and stumbled to a 2-over 72 — the first time he has ever had consecutive rounds

Rookie McClain honors slain teammate By MIKE CRANSTON AP Sports Writer

SPARTANBURG, S.C . — The silver No. 6 pendant dangles at the end of a chain around Robert McClain’s neck. The tattoo honoring his slain college teammate covers the left side of his rib cage. The seventh-round pick is busy these days trying to stick with the Carolina Panthers. But the former Connecticut star still

thinks about Jasper Howard every day, about how in a year the fellow cornerback was supposed to be in an NFL training camp, too. “He was a playmaker, a playmaker. He was on his way, man,” McClain said Friday of the close friend he called Jazz. “He definitely would have had an outstanding year his senior year.” Howard’s life ended in October. Less than 12 hours after he

had starred in a Huskies’ victory, he was fatally stabbed during a fight outside a university-sanctioned dance. McClain, who had let Howard borrow his car earlier that week to pick up his girlfriend, had decided not to attend the dance. He instead stayed in a hotel room with his parents, who had watched UConn beat Louisville 38-25 on homecom-

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not official, Speed Channel flashed on its screen during coverage of Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sprint Cup practice that the 2011 Chase for the Sprint Cup title would begin at Chicagoland instead of New Hampshire. NASCAR already has begun to tweak its schedule with the announcement this week that Atlanta, which is owned by Speedway Motorsports Inc., would lose one of its races in 2011. It marks the first time since the

track opened in 1960 that it will not host two Cup events in a season. SMI owner Bruton Smith said recently he would like to have at least one Cup date at each of his NASCAR-sanctioned tracks, and a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press that SMIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kentucky track will host a Cup race next July. Kansas also is in line to get a second date. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good news in the garage area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sponsors, just like NASCAR and the rest of us, want to see a packed grandstand. They want to see a lot of excitement around the event,â&#x20AC;? said four-time Cup champion Jeff Gordon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As long as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going there (to Atlanta) once a year, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still hitting that market. Wherever we end up going, if it draws a bigger crowd or at least draws a lot of attention and excitement and puts on a good race, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good

change.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think all tracks need to be held to a standard,â&#x20AC;? said Kevin Harvick, who leads the Cup standings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether it be safety, whether it be crowd attendance, whatever it is. The biggest boom we have ever seen in this sport came in 2001 when we went to new venues in Chicago, Kansas, and you had all this movement with the schedule and you created all these new fans. Sometimes things become stale.â&#x20AC;? Atlanta, which has been plagued by poor attendance, had its defenders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the races make sense, some of them donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, in my opinion,â&#x20AC;? said Clint Bowyer, driver of the No. 33 for Richard Childress Racing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Losing Atlanta is a disappointment to me. I think there are a couple of other tracks that have two races that I would, if it was my pick, go once to.â&#x20AC;?

THE GLEN GETS GOOD MARKS: While Pocono Raceway has received its share of criticism for its failure to institute needed safety measures, Watkins Glen International received glowing reviews for the improvements it made in the offseason following horrific wrecks the past two years on the 11-turn, 2.45-mile track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unbelievable,â&#x20AC;? said Greg Biffle of Roush Fenway Racing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is amazing to see what they have done around this race track. It is so nice to see a race track respond so quickly to what appeared to be a pretty bad accident last race.â&#x20AC;?

NASCAR AP source: Kansas to get 2nd NASCAR Sprint Cup race TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A person familiar with the 2011 NASCAR schedule says Kansas Speedway will get a second race next year. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Friday on condition of anonymity because the schedule hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been released. A formal announcement regarding a second Sprint Cup date at Kansas Speedway may come as soon as next week. A public schedule released Friday for Kansas Lt. Gov. Troy Findley notes that he plans to give remarks regarding a second race during a media event Tuesday at the speedway in Kansas City, Kan. A spokeswoman for the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office declined to give more details about Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event. Speedway President Pat Warren said the track was still working with NASCAR officials but that no media events were planned regarding a second date.

LIBERTY, S.C. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Continually hot weather is keeping golf course superintendents busy in the Carolinas as they try to keep greens from dying. A survey conducted by the Carolinas Golf Course Superintendents Association showed that less than 20 percent of courses in the two states that feature bentgrass greens have healthy putting surfaces. The fine-bladed grass is best suited to cooler temperatures. Almost 250 superintendents from courses with bentgrass greens responded. About one in five surveyed said they have closed at least some greens because of heat stress. Carolinas GCSA president Jeffrey Connell says affected superintendents have an impossible situation keeping grass alive in hot conditions. Some superintendents have raised their mowing height or are cutting greens less frequently. They are also lightly watering greens during the hottest parts of the day.

pick, and Little, a senior and the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top receiving threat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to get back to doing football,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think our players are excited about it. Anytime you go on the practice field for two hours, as a coach, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always talking about block out distractions, block out the weather, block out the noise, block out the other teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fans. This was a good way to start camp.â&#x20AC;? Austin and Little appeared to be working with the second team during a 45-minute part of practice that was open to reporters, but Davis said he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t making any practice plans based on their status just yet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We rotate a lot of guys throughout in a lot of different situations,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At some point in time during the course of training camp, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to make a decision based on what we find out and what direction we need to go. But right now, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just practicing football.â&#x20AC;? Davis has talked only in generalities about the inquiry, which began when the NCAA notified the school in late June. Investigators visited the campus July 12 and 13 to interview an unknown number of players, then returned again this week. The probe has been part of a series of similar investigations at defending national champion Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina. During last weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Atlantic Coast Conference Football Kickoff preseason event, Davis refused to answer whether he had a policy of holding out players in the midst of an

NCAA investigation, calling it â&#x20AC;&#x153;speculative.â&#x20AC;? When asked Friday about the NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return to campus, Davis again refused to talk about specifics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll talk about football,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not talking about the NCAA review.â&#x20AC;? His players are following a similar path. Quarterback T.J. Yates said the start of training camp meant the team could just â&#x20AC;&#x153;block everything else and concentrate on football,â&#x20AC;? while cornerback Kendric Burney said the NCAA investigation has been â&#x20AC;&#x153;no distraction at all.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a great first day of practice,â&#x20AC;? Burney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our focus right now is on practice and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing.â&#x20AC;? Davis is preparing for his fourth season in Chapel Hill, where he has guided the program to consecutive eight-win seasons and their first back-to-back bowl seasons since the late 1990s when Mack Brown left for Texas. The Heels are expected to contend for the ACCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coastal Division title behind a defense that returns nine starters from a unit that ranked among the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best last year. Austin â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a 6-foot-3, 310pound tackle â&#x20AC;&#x201D; opted to return to school for his final season instead of heading to the NFL, while Little emerged as the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go-to receiver late last year. Losing either â&#x20AC;&#x201D; let alone, both â&#x20AC;&#x201D; would be a blow for the Tar Heels as they prepare for their opener against LSU in Atlanta on Sept. 4. As for whether the team has rallied around each other in response to the probe, Davis is waiting to see. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our first practice,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Time will tell.â&#x20AC;?

in charge. Randolph, believed to be the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only female head coach of a high school varsity team, took to the field with her Coolidge Colts late Friday afternoon on a steamy hot day. She wore a standard coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attire: gray school T-shirt, orange Coolidge shorts, tennis shoes and a black visor on over her dreadlocks.

McClain is playing a lot like he did at UConn, when he paired with Howard to make the Huskies a factor in the Big East.

The secondteam all-Big East selection had four interceptions and returned a punt for a touchdown last season. The 5-foot-10 Howard returned kicks, too, and had made 11 tackles and forced a third-quarter fumble to help the Huskies maintain the lead against the Cardinals in his final game.

She and the school have limited her interviews, and only a portion of the practice was open to reporters and photographers. Randolph, a biology and environmental sciences teacher at the school, was chosen from about 15 candidates after the previous coach resigned.

much because of Firestone, rather the number of players chasing him. Sixteen players were separated by four shots going into the weekend. That includes Bubba Watson (71) in the group at 5-under 135, Adam Scott (70), Lucas Glover (66) and Paul Casey (68) at 136, and Rory McIlroy (69) and Dustin Johnson (65) in the group at 137.

for him. After three consecutive losses following his death, Connecticut tasted victory in emotional fashion at Notre Dame. After the game, coach Randy Edsall took out the pendant with the No. 6, the number Howard wore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach had said after we won he was going to give it to somebody,â&#x20AC;? McClain said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He gave it to me.â&#x20AC;? McClain immediately attached it to a chain in which he carries his grandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog tags. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wear these every day,â&#x20AC;? McClain said, clutching the chain. Later, McClain was one of several UConn players to get a tattoo. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a No. 6 with rosary beads and a cross. It also lists his birthday and the date of his death, Oct. 18, 2009.

DEAR ABBY

BRIDGE HAND

Girl is held hostage when stepsister comes to stay DEAR ABBY: When my stepsister, “Skye,” stays here every other weekend, I not only have to share my room with her, but I’m also expected to spend all my time with her. We’re both 15. I have nothing against her, but she’s not someone I would choose as a friend. It’s a small room for two people. It means I can’t have friends over every other weekend, and I’m also not allowed to spend the night at a friend’s or do anything with them without taking her along. She’s usually not invited, so I’m stuck staying home with her. Abby, Skye is supposed to be here visiting her father (my stepfather), but he’s usually out playing golf or fishing, and I have to be home with her and feel like I’m her baby sitter. Please tell me what you think. — FED UP IN EUGENE, ORE.

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Money may be a challenge if you are too generous. You need to draw the line, set up a tight budget and work hard. This year, much will depend on what and who you know, so networking will get you in the door and on your way to a better future. Patience and practicality will be your best friend. Your numbers are 5, 17, 20, 29, 33, 38, 41 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do what needs to be done around home before you start getting complaints. It’s all about keeping things simple right now, in order to avoid arguments, setbacks or anything else that could go wrong. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Question what you spend your money on and avoid snap decisions that might trap you in a difficult situation. Use your head so you don’t underestimate a situation that is playing on your emotions. Offer suggestions, not cash or time. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t give in to someone trying to get you to put money into something about which you are unsure. Focus on things that will make you look and feel good. Socializing and networking should be your prime goals. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t get all worked up over nothing. Your emotions will be difficult to control and your only out will be a hobby or an outside interest. Don’t try to sort out any romantic or personal problem until you feel calmer. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Plan your day to include friends or your lover. Change is apparent and will take you in a new direction personally and physically. You can change the way you think, view life and move forward in the future. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Looking back will

help you move forward. Your interaction with others will help you realize how lucky you are. Uncertainty surrounding finances will only stabilize if you avoid impulse purchases. A mistake made in the past can be avoided this time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will end up in a tight spot if you are critical or point the finger at someone. This is not the time to start a feud or to overdo, overspend or overreact. Negativity will only bring you poor results. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Put your ideas, talent and projects out on display. The feedback you get will help you decide which way to go. Don’t overreact to criticism. What’s said will be valid and can help you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Get things done at home or work on a project that will help you get ahead professionally. Love is in the stars and taking time out to play will spark new ideas and boost your ego. Entertain at home. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t live in the past or dwell on things you cannot change. Stay away from people you have problems with and avoid any sort of awkward conversation that could leave you with extra responsibilities. Discuss your intentions with the one you love. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): Consider what you need to do to make your financial situation better. Good fortune is heading in your direction and you should help it along in any way you can. Love is on the rise. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It’s time to discuss your future plans and to get to the bottom of a situation that has left you in personal limbo. Get out and meet people or take up a new interest that leads to alternatives you hadn’t considered in the past.

DEAR FED UP: I’m glad you asked. This is something you should discuss with your mother. But please consider that as uncomfortable as this is for you, imagine how your stepsister must feel. Skye is stuck every other weekend in a small room with someone who resents her because she’d rather entertain her friends. Add to that the fact that Skye has a father who shows no interest in spending special time with her, and would rather be with his buddies or alone amusing himself with his hobbies. Frankly, I feel sorry for both you and your stepsister. You’re being

treated like her unpaid baby sitter, and she’s no baby. And she is being treated like a burden to everyone. o DEAR ABBY: I recently received a wedding invitation from my cousin, who is marrying a woman with two children from a previous marriage. Photos of all of them were included in the invitation. In addition to the typical registry items (housewares, kitchen gadgets, etc.), I was surprised to see a number of items for the children, including bedding, games, toys and clothing. Is this typical for couples with children who marry, or is this an abuse of the registry? — PERPLEXED IN UTAH DEAR PERPLEXED: An abuse of the registry? When a couple is being married, they register for items they think they will need as they

start life together. Loving friends and family try to give them what they request, to the extent they are financially able to do so. Your cousin and his bride-to-be may prefer new items for the children to yet another coffee pot, toaster or piece of china. If that offends you, give them something else. The registry is a guideline; it’s not cast in stone. o DEAR ABBY: Once a week I meet with three friends at a coffee shop/restaurant. We sit for at least an hour chatting and catching up about our families. I’m the only one in the group who orders anything, and it’s usually just a beverage. It makes me uncomfortable that no one else orders and we take up the table for an hour. This has gone on for a while, and I have not found a way to say anything. Can you help? — FRIEND IN SACRAMENTO DEAR FRIEND: If the owner or manager of the place objected to the fact that you are taking up the table, something would have been said by now, or a notice would have been printed stating that customers must place a minimum order per person. However, because you feel awkward being the only person having something, tell your friends how you feel and that you’d feel more comfortable if they ordered something, too.

Brazen black bear breaks into Montana houses

Iowa City couple to wed at jr. high 50 years later

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A brazen black bear with a late-night hankering for supreme pizza surprised a Montana resident last week, and it’s not the first time the animal has eluded capture. The bear is believed responsible for about 21 break-ins in the Red Lodge area in south-central Montana over the past few weeks. In the most recent heist, Marek Rosin said he awoke at about 1:30 a.m. on July 29 to find the bear had pushed open the door to his back porch and was raiding his chest freezer. “He was about four feet from me with his head in the freezer munching on a pizza,” Rosin said. “It was almost comical if it wouldn’t have been that close.” Rosin scared the bear off before it could eat anything more. Most of the break-ins involve the bear climbing through a screened window or breaking through a screen door to access refrigerators or freezers, said Shawn Stewart, a Fish, Wildlife and Parks biologist. Stewart said he thinks a single adult black bear is causing most of the problems. Two culvert traps were set up, but the bear has avoided them. Another bear was captured and relocated. Over the past four days, no new reports of bear break-ins have come in. It’s unknown if the bear might have left the area. Bear incidents are also being reported south of Bozeman, east of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and around Jackson Hole, Wyo. “It’s fairly widespread,” Stewart said.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa City couple is getting married at South East Junior High nearly 50 years after they met there as seventh graders. Karen Wilcox and Mike Wilson were brought together in 1962 by an alphabetized homeroom seating arrangement. They dated in eighth grade, but broke up by high school. They stayed in touch on and off as each went on to two unsuccessful marriages. The two started dating again in January after Wilson moved back to Iowa City from Florida, where he’d lived after retiring as a surgeon. They’ll get married in the same room where they shared their first dance.

2 women charged in kindergarten graduation brawl VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Two women have been charged with misdemeanors for a fight that led to a brawl during a Southern California kindergarten graduation ceremony. San Bernardino County investigators say the women were arguing and it got physical in a field near the June ceremony at Puesta del Sol Elementary in Victorville. Several men got involved and the incident turned into a brawl, forcing school officials to place the school on lockdown until deputies sorted things out. No one was hurt.

Don’t ignore addictions Q: Our teenaged son got into drugs at a fairly young age, and we didn’t even pick up on it or try to get help for him until it was too late (he died of an overdose). I guess we hoped the problem would go away but it didn’t. Please warn parents to be more alert. -- Mrs. D.K. A: You’ve been through one of the most painful ordeals any parent will ever experience, and I pray that even in the midst of your grief you’ll discover God’s peace. I also hope your words will help someone who might be facing a similar situation. The Bible reminds us that “A wise man listens to advice” (Proverbs 12:15). Yes, drug addiction is a terrible scourge in our society -- and (as you’ve discovered) simply hoping it will go away doesn’t work. Parents need to know the warning signs of drug and alcohol abuse, and confront their son or daughter if they have reason to believe it’s taking place. If the problem persists, a pastor or doctor or other trusted advisor can suggest options for treatment. Parents also need to know who their child’s friends are, and how and where they are spending their free time. Teens can be easily influenced by their friends. The Bible warns, “Do not be misled: ‘Bad company corrupts good character’” (1 Corinthians 15:33). They always need to know, however, that we love them, which is why we hate to see them heading down the wrong road. The most important thing any parent can do, however, is to point their children to Jesus Christ -- both by what they say and what they do.

The Sanford Herald / Saturday, August 7, 2010 / 9B

I’m your mentor. You hold such promise, yet you need my discipline. And so, I set a maddening standard

only a few attain: deceptively easy, bafflingly difficult. Tantalizing.

Inscrutable. Testing your character. Teasing you with the easier,

softer way. Snatching away the promise at the worst possible time,

leaving you exposed and alone and vowing: next time. I am Par.

Over 550 courses to school yourself on without ever leaving the state.
