ECONOMY DOMINATES COMMISH FORUM Republicans, Democrats vying for three county seats form partisan split when it comes to opinions on local economic development By BILLY LIGGETT

SANFORD — It wasn’t mentioned specifically in the question, but it makes sense that economic development dominated the conversation in a political forum hosted by

business leaders. The Sanford Area Chamber of Commerce invited the six candidates vying for three open seats on the Lee County Board of Commissioners Monday. And when economic development came up — the candidates were asked about

Busy candidate wants end to wasteful spending in cash-strapped Lee County



SANFORD — Lee County commissioners approved a five-year incentives agreement Monday that will help a local car parts manufacturer upgrade its machinery. Monday’s deal amounts to $290,269 in tax breaks for Magnetii Marelli Powertrain Systems USA, which operates a 250,000 square foot facility for nearly 300 workers on Nash Street and Broadway Road, officials said. The company, which has reportedly foundered with layoffs and lost contracts in recent years, creates hightech engine components for carmakers like Ford, General Motors and Toyota. The approved incentive agreement will allow the company to recoup half of its paid county taxes over the next five years, a carrot

Almanac Today is Tuesday, Oct. 5, the 278th day of 2010. There are 87 days left in the year. This day in history: On Oct. 5, 1910, Portugal was proclaimed a republic following the abdication of King Manuel II in the face of a coup d’etat. In 1892, the Dalton Gang, notorious for its train robberies, was practically wiped out while attempting to rob a pair of banks in Coffeyville, Kan. In 1921, the World Series was covered live on radio for the first time as Newark, N.J. station WJZ relayed reports from the Polo Grounds, where the New York Giants were facing the New York Yankees. (Although the Yankees won the opener, 3-0, the Giants won the series, 5 games to 3.) In 1931, Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon completed the first non-stop flight across the Pacific Ocean, arriving in Washington state some 41 hours after leaving Japan. In 1947, President Harry S. Truman delivered the first televised White House address as he spoke on the world food crisis. In 1962, the Beatles’ first hit recording, “Love Me Do,” was originally released in the United Kingdom. In 1970, British trade commissioner James Richard Cross was kidnapped in Canada by militant Quebec separatists; he was released the following December. In 1988, Democrat Lloyd Bentsen lambasted Republican Dan Quayle during their vice-presidential debate, telling Quayle, “Senator, you’re no Jack Kennedy.”

the campaign fray, stepping in when Democrats’ first choice Kenny Cole exited the field in June for a position managing the Harnett County town of Coats. But Johnson has had to shape his policy quick as GOP opponent Jim Womack hammered home calls for reduced government spending and lower taxes. According to Johnson, the conservative demands might be unrealistic if looming state budget cuts in local spending

come to pass. “I think in this economy everybody wants to hear what my opponent says,” Johnson said. “But realistically, I have not been a commissioner yet. I have not seen the specifics on what the line-item budgets are.” Realism, as Johnson puts it, is vital to his campaign. “Sometimes if you come over to me and want me to tell you that’s a nice shirt, I’ll tell you that,” he said. “But realistically, I’m going to turn

around and tell you that’s an ugly shirt.” Still, Johnson pledged that maintaining the county’s 75cent property tax rate would be a top priority, adding that the county levy is the third lowest in an eight-county region that includes Moore, Harnett, Wake, Chatham, Johnston, Orange and Durham. “I would fight to the end before I raise any taxes,” he said. “That would not be something I would voluntarily do.”

According to Womack, no county department should be completely safe from the budget ax, be it local schools, Parks and Recreation and beyond. “I’m not going to say there won’t be wailing or gnashing of teeth,” he said. Womack pointed to neighboring Moore County as one attractive region that recently cut millions in spending to save tax dollars. “Everything is on the table,” he said. “If government is involved, there is some inefficiency somewhere.” Womack’s background includes study at the U.S.

Military Academy at West Point, time leading troops in the first Gulf War in Iraq, and years tracking Soviet threats for U.S. intelligence officials. An outspoken critic of economic incentives, Womack said Lee County must focus on providing an inviting climate for industrial leaders, not just tax breaks. The economic tax breaks have drawn fire from critics complaining that politicians are throwing away tax dollars on companies that might have settled locally anyway, although proponents have argued the incentives are vital to compete in today’s economy.

According to Womack, the county’s recent deal to provide $900,000 in upfront payments in exchange for some $28 million in expansion dollars is as close as commissioners have come to striking a “borderline strategic” incentive arrangement. Incentives have been “the only tool in our quiver,” Womack said. “It’s like we’re a broken record.” Womack said leaders must also offer low taxes and tout the region’s proximity to both the Triangle and Fort Bragg, one of the biggest strengths for Sanford and Lee County, he said.

“We travel two hours one way for games sometimes,” Dutchess said. “We try to help our families with fuel and travel expenses so all of our kids can play.” SASL President Brent Sloan said the league stands firmly behind its teams’ fundraisers. “These two teams in particular put a lot of effort into getting out into the community,” Sloan said. He added that events like the tournament allow all of the kids who make the team to participate — regardless of their financial situation. The kids may be particularly excited about the tournament, but Dutchess said she hopes to see contestants of all ages. If the event is a

success, the teams may hold


another one in the future. “It would be nice if we could get 100 people out there,” Dutchess said. “That would be great for the first time.” Two players will face off in each round, and whomever wins the best of five will move on in the bracket. First- and second-place winners will take home $100 and $50 prizes, respectively, as well as a trophy. The games begin at 11 a.m., and players registering at the door are asked to arrive between 10:30 and 10:50 a.m. To pre-register, contact Dutchess at 721-1069 or

in favor of a recent contract between the EDC and local government agencies that called for better communication and regular updates regarding efforts to attract business. Republicans, on the other hand, were unanimous on the notion that the contract isn’t doing enough to ensure accountability. “We just did a new economic development contract that I feel was a giant step backwards,” District 4 Republican candidate Jim Womack told the assembled crowd at Chef Paul’s in Sanford. “The contract has no enforceability to it. It doesn’t have any performance measures, and it doesn’t target or provide (EDC Director) Bob Heuts and his organization the necessary top-down guidance they need to be effective.” District 3 Democratic hopeful Mike Womble disagreed, saying the contract was a step in the right direction for an agency competing against larger cities and other states for industry. “They did a wonderful job of revising and restating our economic development policy, because it does make it less restrictive and gives the county a better opportunity to go out and assist new and expanding industry in Lee County,” Womble said. “I don’t like incentives any more than anybody else does. But in my opinion, they’re an economic necessity. We have to do it to compete.” The six candidates are running for office during a difficult, though promising, time in Lee County. Unemployment has consistently ranked among the state’s worst in the past year, though the jobless rate has crept up consistently in the past six months. Good news also came in the form of an announcement by construction giant Caterpillar in August when the company announced an expansion that would mean 325 new jobs with salaries in the mid$30,000-a-year range. “We’re turning the corner slowly but surely, and the revamping of the EDC is very important to Lee County,” said District 2 incumbent, Democrat Amy Dalrymple. “We’ve opened things up. It’s not as stringent as it was before. It has avenues for smaller business ... and it’s critical to do what we can as commissioners to attract and retain businesses, put people back to work and to increase our tax base.” District 4 candidate Butch Johnson, a Democrat, echoed Dalrymple and added that he doesn’t feel Lee County’s businesses are being overtaxed as some have suggested. “In a comparison out of our eight surrounding counties, Lee County has sixth lowest per capita tax burden,” Johnson said. “I don’t think industry fails to come here because of our tax rate.” Republican Charlie Parks, who will face Dalrymple in November, disagreed with Johnson, describing taxes in Lee County and North Carolina as “too high.” I’ve lived in two different states — one that had high taxes and one that didn’t,” Parks said.

The Sanford Herald / Tuesday, October 5, 2010 / 3A “The one with (lower) taxes brought businesses in and provided a climate where new businesses could come in and grow. We can’t do that with our businesses here. Every county around us has lower taxes than we do.” Womble’s opponent in District 3, Republican incumbent Linda Shook, said economic development as a whole needs another look as it fails to acknowledge an important part of the county’s infrastructure — agriculture. “I have a rural district, and ... I have not seen that segment (agriculture) anywhere in our economic development plans,” Shook said. “Every dollar that is created from the ag sector turns over five times in Lee County. Any economic development plan we have has to include agriculture.” Other concerns of note included education and the county’s budget. In a short Q&A from the audience following the Chamber’s prepared questions, candidates were asked to grade Lee County Schools’ performance, and those grades ranged from a B (Womble) to an A- (Johnson). The candidates’ next forum stop is Thursday at The Herald’s forum slated to begin with a reception at 5:45 p.m. at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center. Candidates for N.C. House District 51 and the U.S. 2nd Congressional District have also been invited to attend.

Conversation at 7 p.m. tonight. The organizations encourage arts leaders and community members to gather at Northwood High School’s Benjamin J. Lee Auditorium to discuss the importance of the arts in the community and in schools. “Art is more than something that just hangs on the wall,” said Molly Matlock, executive director of ChathamArts. “It can challenge us to think and see in new ways.” To kick off last year’s National Arts and Humanities Month, Americans for the Arts coordinated 43 Creative Conversations throughout the country. Tonight’s discussion in Pittsboro will feature Serena Ebhardt and David zum Brunnen of EbzB Productions, an organization specializing in student workshops, residencies, professional development seminars and touring theatrical productions that promote integrity and selfdiscovery. Ebhardt and zum Brunnen will discuss with attendees the idea of arts integration, which involves incorporating the arts into other subjects such as math, English, science and history. “They may use music to teach (students) about

sound waves, mathematical formulas and the history and social context of the music,” Matlock said. Ebhardt and zum Brunnen were both trained to teach arts in education workshops at the Lincoln Center Institute and the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. In addition to speaking at the Creative Conversation, Ebhardt and zum Brunnen will conduct residencies through ChathamArts at Jordan-Matthews High School and Northwood High School. Their residencies will focus on integrating the arts into other areas to enhance the learning process. At a past residency, Ebhardt and zum Brunnen had students conduct interviews about desegregation in Columbus County and use that information to write their own production about the topic. “It’s not a situation when you stop the learning that’s going on,” said Gina Harrison, chair of the ChathamArts arts in education committee and president of the Northwood Arts Education Foundation. “The teaching artists are enhancing the lessons. It’s trying to bring that holistic approach that arts educators use intrinsically into other disciplines.” Chatham County is no stranger to artist residencies. In years past, ChathamArts has brought

residencies to schools that focused on everything from language arts and social studies to science and math. “In the past three years, we’ve served more than 5,000 students through residencies,” Matlock said. “We’re kind of revamping this year and really letting David and Serena guide how we strengthen our programming.” Matlock said she hopes National Arts and Humanities Month will bring studies to the forefront that demonstrate the benefits of arts education. For example, The Center for Educational Policy conducted a 2008 study that revealed 93 percent of Americans believe the arts are important to education, but 22 percent of school districts cut arts-related instructional time. “We are now finding lots of research that the cuts

that have often been made are detrimental not only to the arts but also to other core subjects,” Harrison said. “As arts integration points out, all of these activities contribute to a well-rounded student.”

Preservationists have a lot to see in Lee Co. Our View Issue A group of preservationists toured one of Lee County's more popular sites last week, the Old Gilliam Mill

Our stance Lee County is lucky to have a number of historic sites such as the mill, the Railroad House, the House on the Horseshoe, the Endor Iron Furnace and more


his is all just amazing to me.” Those were the words of a Columbus, Ohio, woman concerning the puffing of a saw mill at Sanford’s Ole Gilliam Mill Park on Friday. The woman was part of a group of more than 100 preservationists and curators who were in Sanford for a tour of this fascinating park, which came about thanks to the efforts of Lee County’s own Worth Pickard who reconstructed the mill in 1977. The park evolved from there. Obviously, the park is not only a draw for preservationists and curators — but from all citizens who not only enjoy the beauty of

the old ways of operation, but the beauty of the park itself. Central Carolina has its share of historical preservation that hopefully will live on for generations to come. There’s the Railroad House in downtown Sanford, not only preserving one of Sanford’s earliest homes but also providing a safekeeping of many interesting artifacts from our past. The Endor Iron Furnace is a grand structure used in our 1800s, where many individuals have worked toward the preservation of this historic structure. The House in the Horseshoe in nearby Moore County is one of our state historic sites and

dates back to the Revolutionary War days. It was once home of Benjamin Williams, a four-term governor. There’s the Deep River Camelback Truss Bridge in the Gulf/ Cumnock area of nearby Chatham County, a bridge that dates back to the early 1900s. Then there are the various individual efforts to preserve our history, including Edwin Patterson. He has a Tar Kiln Village, where he has 13 buildings from Lee, Harnett, Chatham and Wake counties that date back to the late 1700s to early 1800s. Patterson has relocated and restored these buildings over the last 27 years. Over the years, the Railroad

House Historical Association has conducted tours of various historic sites in the Central Carolina area. So why is historic preservation important? Not only are all of these examples listed above enjoyable to visit, but it’s all about our heritage. It gives us a glimpse from the lives of our forefathers and ancestors. It should give us an appreciation of where we’ve been ... and the progress that has been made over the years. Central Carolina has a proud history — and we should be grateful that we have individuals and groups who have worked long and hard to preserve the past for future generations.

Expecting competence


s much as some might like to make politics about mosques or presidential birth certificates, what most people really crave from their government is competence. It’s why Bill Clinton, despite his moral failings, won two terms as president. It’s why politicians get tossed from power when the economy falters. Voters expect their elected representatives to be able to do something to turn around a sluggish economy. They may not expect government bureaucracies to operate competently, but they can hope for it. When not much competence is evident, you basically have three choices: You can mutter and curse. You can cast your vote against the political party in power. Or, you can go to Tea Party rallies. Lately, some unemployed workers have faced such a choice. The state agency responsible for doling out their unemployment checks looks pretty incompetent. It seems the state Employment Security Commission sent out $28 million in overpayments to the unemployed. Now, the ESC is having to recoup the money from some folks who probably aren’t in much a position to repay it. For some longtime unemployed workers, the solution has meant seeing their benefits slashed. In any enterprise as substantial as the state’s unemployment system, mistakes can happen. But revelations that the agency had known since January that it was miscalculating the checks of 38,000 people are a bit tough to accept. David Clegg, the commission’s deputy chair and chief financial officer, said the agency was unable until recently to complete the computer programming needed to correct the problem. Despite knowing about the situation since January, the commission notified those affected just 48 hours before it began cutting benefits. The ESC has alternately explained the problem as caused by paying people from the wrong pools of money or improperly recalculating benefits as people entered a second year of unemployment. The explanations probably don’t mean much to an unemployed worker who just had a weekly benefit check cut from $500 to $250. ... It was only a month ago that a state audit found that a couple of workers at the Employment Security Commission seemed more interested in the movie pirating than their actual state duties. If ESC workers have that much time on their hands, but still require eight months to fix a known problem affecting thousands of unemployed workers, then the solution would seem pretty obvious. The agency should make up the $28 million. Cut salaries. Fire administrators. Do whatever it takes. If agency workers get laid off, then they’ll certainly be able to empathize with those folks who have been jerked around by their former employer.

Economic philosophy


couple of back-to-back statements by President Obama at a town hall rally in Des Moines, Iowa, tell us all we need to know about his economic philosophy and that we aren’t going to climb out of his recession and begin to slow the growth of the national debt as long as he’s calling the shots. Voters, he said, tell him to “cut government spending.” But “most spending is for veterans, for education, for defense. ... Finding $700 billion is not easy.” Yet a few minutes earlier, in response to criticism over illegal immigrants getting health care in the United States, he had said, “It is very important that we have compassion as part of our national character.” (How about compassion for future generations of Americans?) Does anyone see the disconnect here? If Obama believes our national character is deficient unless we expand the welfare state to illegal immigrants, then how could he ever preside over a balanced budget? His wildly inaccurate statement about where the money is spent is equally revealing. For fiscal year 2010, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and other sources, benefits for veterans constituted about 3.5 percent of the budget; education expenditures were 3 percent; and defense and security totaled about 20 percent. Even worse than these errors is his defeatist statement that “finding $700 billion is not easy.” Well, of course it’s not easy if you have no desire to trim the size, functions and intrusiveness of government. Didn’t he just say again the other day that he is “committed to fiscal responsibility”? Hasn’t he incessantly argued that President George W. Bush is the one who ran up these outlandish deficits? We all know what a distortion and exercise in scapegoatery that is. President Bush fulfilled his promise to cut the deficit in half by 2006. In fiscal year 2007, the deficit was $161 billion. Hard to believe, isn’t it? That’s just three years ago, and Obama says it’s nearly impossible to trim much? Even the final Bush year, which Obama continues to blame for all “this mess” and which Obama has used to establish his new deficit base line, was not actually the alleged $1.3 trillion, but closer to $800 billion when TARP repayments are factored in. Assuming Obama even wants to bring down the deficit, his economic philosophy precludes him from advancing policies likeliest to do it. You cannot make much headway on the deficit in a period of recession, and his policies are leading us toward a double-dip recession. Indeed, the dirty reality is that Keynesian policy works as a double whammy against fiscal sanity. It involves government’s spending money it doesn’t have, which, by definition, increases the deficit and debt. And it also increases the deficit by smothering the

private sector and deterring real economic growth. There is no appreciable “multiplier effect” from monies that are spent by government fiat, as opposed to those spent in response to true market forces, including real consumer demand — as opposed to government command . We saw the devastating impact of reckless Keynesian policies during the Great Depression, and we’re witnessing them again today. As long as Obama is married to his redistributionist profligacy, we cannot reduce the deficit. And it’s even worse when you consider that Obama wants to raise taxes on the primary generators of economic growth, small businesses, during a slow economic period. With his signature audacity, Obama told town hall attendees their taxes haven’t gone up in his administration. Puleeze! Obamacare, anyone — for starters? He also said Republicans haven’t been honest with voters about what needs to be done to revive the economy. “We can’t pretend that there are shortcuts,” he said. Sorry, but he’s the one being dishonest. The Bush years saw robust economic growth until the last year of Bush’s second term. The policies that led to the subprime collapse, the recession and the skyrocketing deficit in his final year were brought upon mostly by liberal Democrats hellbent on demonstrating their “compassion” for people by insisting on loans to people who couldn’t repay them and cynically resisting President Bush’s efforts to rein in Fannie and Freddie. President Reagan didn’t continue to blame Jimmy Carter for his malaise-ridden economy during his term. He didn’t implement policies that didn’t work after promising they would and then whine that it would “take 10 years to get out of this mess because it took us 10 years to get into this mess.” He passed tax cuts that launched an unprecedented period of peacetime growth — and not at the expense of federal revenues, as has been falsely alleged. I don’t expect President Obama to come clean with the American people or to ever accept responsibility for his disastrous policies, much less to voluntarily change course, but it’s gratifying to see that people, including some of his supporters, are finally onto him.

If anybody feels the Southern Lee Cavaliers football team is getting “preferred treatment” from The Herald, please call me, because I have an ocean front lot in Kansas I need to sell. If the Cavaliers are getting too much coverage from The Herald it’s because we’ve had four football coaches and three principals in our six-year-old “new” high school. How do you think the kids feel with all of that change? “Preferred treatment” and Southern Lee just don’t go together in this town ... just ask the school board. We finally have the right principal in place who is making the right decisions. If she keeps on doing a good job and if the LCHS parents keep complaining about “equality” and “lack of fairness,” our school board will make her the new principal at Lee County High School. So stop crying about the newspaper showing you any love; you’ve always got the school board. Doesn’t the softball field need a new scoreboard, too? Isn’t the preferential treatment you get from the school board enough? ESPN will not be covering any of your games, and The Herald is The Herald, but always remember that the next time you see Southern Lee before you see Lee County, believe that we are all happy Lee County is having a good football year. Why wouldn’t we be? We are still one county with friends and cousins playing on both teams. The late John Wooden once said, “Sports do not build character, they reveal it.” I know it’s been a long time, but act like you’ve been there before. Football is not the only game in town right now and neither is Lee County High School. What about soccer, volleyball, cross country, tennis and golf? How do you think Grace and Lee Christian feel? Some kids in this county go to those high schools as well, and they all have athletic programs. You could take all the newspaper coverage from those schools and put it in Southern Lee’s auditorium or our field house ... wait neither exist. We would have to borrow the ones at LCHS. Like Woody Durham and all Carolina fans say every year, “Wait ‘til basketball season.” Cav pride. You know. VINCE WENGER Sanford

for the Italy-based manufacturer to invest in machinery. Officials said the company could also add up to 30 new jobs in the coming years, a small salve for Lee County’s recent doubledigit unemployment. “This is a nice opportunity for a company that actually struggled in the last 10 years,� said Bob Heuts, director of Lee County’s Economic Development Corporation, the nonprofit that heads up recruiting efforts locally. The manufacturer has been located in Lee County since 1976, Heuts said. Commissioners gave the go-ahead to the accord despite heated opposition by incentive critic Commissioner Linda Shook. Shook complained that the agreement does not include stipulations forcing Magneti Marelli to add new jobs, although Heuts said the EDC has “never� drafted contracts that way. According to Heuts, EDC officials focus on a variety of aspects when considering offering incentives, particularly whether the company’s local investment will add to the Lee County tax base.

Perdue: flights probe won’t find crimes

RALEIGH (AP) — Gov. Beverly Perdue said Monday she’s confident another state investigation stemming around previously unreported private flights she took over the years won’t turn up intentional criminal wrongdoing by her and her campaign. Wake County District Colon Willoughby confirmed late last week he had asked the State Bureau of Investigation to examine issues surrounding the campaign flights and review air travel and review details raised in a State Board of Elections probe. Perdue told reporters after a flu season news conference her campaign staff is cooperating and “we all feel very comfortable that the outcome will be the same as with the Board of Elections.”

The elections board fined her campaign $30,000 on Aug. 24 for failing to report in a timely fashion private flights going back to 2005, but a majority of the board found no deliberate effort to break the law. Willoughby said Friday his concerns didn’t involve Perdue specifically. “There is no hint that I’m being investigated,” Perdue said. Perdue, a Democrat, and state election officials determined her campaign failed to report more than 40 flights, going as far back as her first campaign for lieutenant governor in 2000. The governor and her staff have said for the past year the flights were uncovered during an internal review that began last year while moving to a new campaign reporting system

in 2007 and pointed out voluntarily the potential problems to the board long ago. The board’s investigation, however, found the campaign had information on 37 flights in mid-2007 but only reported 18 of them before Election Day of the following year. Perdue’s committee attorney couldn’t explain why the campaign information was withheld. Perdue said she didn’t manage the mechanics of her campaign office. “My campaign ... has been very direct in saying there were some mistakes made but you know I’m the one who chose to do the self-audit and find flights and give them out to the public,” Perdue said. “I can’t explain what happened.” The board’s investiga-

tion report also found some inconsistencies, such as a donor who said that he contributed to Perdue’s campaign but that he didn’t make an in-kind contribution of $3,049 for air travel in late 2007 as campaign committee records indicated he did. The public release of Willoughby’s decision wrapped up a bad week for Perdue that included her essentially firing her revenue secretary after a policy disagreement over refunds for aging tax returns. She also had to fix an unemployment benefit mistake that led to $28 million in overpayments to tens of thousands of unemployed workers who were then asked to return the money. A plan has been worked out so they won’t have to pay the money back.


Leaf expert says expect colorful mountains

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Every year, Kathy Gould Mathews takes a deep breath and weighs in on the fall foliage season. An associate professor of biology at Western Carolina University specializing in plant systematics, Mathews does not take her annual forecast lightly. Neither do the tourist industries across Western North Carolina and East Tennessee who

count on the color change to bring in business. Mathews says she expects an above-average display this autumn based on weather patterns this past spring and summer. “It’s been a hot year, with above-average temperatures this summer,” she said. “Rainfall has been slightly less than average this spring and summer. These are two factors I look at when

thinking about the timing and quality of the fall color change in the mountains.” Mathews said that while soaring temperatures in June and July might have hurt gardens, well-established trees and shrubs were not adversely affected and in fact should produce more vibrant colors as a result of the heat stress. “The formation of

ample yellow, orange and red pigments in the leaves seems to correlate with dry weather throughout the year,” she said. In Gatlinburg, elevation 1,289 feet, the leaves usually hit full color by the end of October or early November. In some areas, species like tulip poplar, dogwood and sourwood trees already have changed.

N.C. crops risk low yields after rains RALEIGH (AP) — North Carolina’s agriculture commissioner says heavy rain that drenched eastern counties could mean lower yields for sweet potatoes, cotton, peanuts and soybeans. Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler toured much of the region by air and ground and saw many crops under water. He said that would affect yields because those crops were about to be harvested. Going into last week, only 11 percent of the cotton crop had been harvested, and 31 percent of the sweet potato crop had been dug. Peanut and soybean harvest was just beginning. Troxler said it’s too early to estimate the cost of crop damage. He encouraged farmers to document their damage and stay in touch with their county Cooperative Extension agent and U.S. Farm Service Agency office.

Ex-NC speaker Black leaves prison but not yet free RALEIGH (AP) — Former state House Speaker Jim Black was released Monday from a federal prison where he was serving time for a corruption-related conviction six months before finishing his sentence. Black left the prison in Jesup, Ga., Monday and will complete his sentence, which ends April 1, at a Charlotte-area halfway house or under house arrest, prison spokeswoman Erin Chalfant said.

The release was the result of Black completing a 500hour program designed to help people with drug or alcohol problems, which also shaved a year off the Mecklenburg County Democrat’s original sentence, Chalfant said. The halfway house’s operators, who have a contract with federal prison authorities, will decide if or when the 75-year-old Black has the income and family support needed to allow him to complete his sentence under house arrest, Chalfant said. “Being separated from my family, friends, and loved ones since 2007 has been difficult,” Black said in the statement released by his attorney.

Tea party activist endorses Democrat in District 7 RALEIGH (AP) — A leading tea party activist is breaking ranks to endorse Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre, expressing concern about a Republican challenger who was once charged with murder. Deborah Johns said Monday it appears that voters are ignoring Republican candidate Ilario Pantano’s past. Pantano was charged with premediated murder in 2005, and prosecutors accused him of shooting two Iraqis in the back. An investigating officer later said that Pantano made “serious errors” in judgment but should not be brought to trial for murder. Johns is the former vice chair of the Tea Party Express who still speaks at party events. She’s the mother of a Marine and said McIntyre was the first Democrat she’s endorsed. Pantano has drawn the support from many activists in the tea party movement.

Eastern N.C. begins cleanup after downpour, floods WINDSOR, N.C. (AP) — Randy Russell stared at a knee-deep pool of water surrounding his restaurant, Bunn’s Barbecue, on Monday as it leaked over makeshift sand barriers and past the front door. “I’d hate to leave it,” he said of the restaurant that’s been serving barbecue since 1938. “But it tries your spirit when this happens.” With more than 200 businesses and homes damaged, Windsor, a town of about 2,300 on the banks of the Cashie River, is one of the places hit hardest in eastern North Carolina by torrential rains and flash floods. But the scenes of people surveying damage, cleaning up and gingerly making their way through still-flooded roads were repeated all over the region Monday.

repeat itself over the next few months, Kagan left the courtroom while the other justices remained to hear a case in which she will take no part. She has taken herself out of 24 pending cases, including the second of the two argued Monday, because of her work as the Obama administration’s solicitor general prior to joining the court in August. Opening its new term on the traditional first Monday in October, the court turned down hun-

dreds of appeals, including one from the relatives of victims of the Sept. 11 attacks. They are seeking a proper burial for material taken from the World Trade Center site because it could contain the ashes of victims. The justices also refused to hear several criminal appeals, including one by John and Timothy Rigas, founders of former telecommunications giant Adelphia Communications. They wanted the court to overturn their fraud convictions in connection with Adelphia’s collapse in 2002. The court also rejected an appeal by reputed Ku

Ginsburg, who joined in 1993, sat midway between Kagan and Roberts, who occupies the center chair. John Paul Stevens’ retirement after 34 years led to Kagan’s appointment. The new court has four New Yorkers, Antonin Scalia and the three women. All nine justices got their law degrees from Ivy League schools, and all but Kagan previously served as federal appeals court judges. For the first time ever, there are no Protestants among the justices — six Catholics and three Jews. The substitution of the liberal-leaning Kagan for the like-minded Stevens is not expected to make a difference in the ideologically tinged cases in which four conservatives face off against four liberals with Justice Anthony Kennedy the decisive vote. Kennedy sides more often with the conservatives. But none of that matters when the court hears cases like the first one of its new term, a bankruptcy dispute with no evident ideological issue. The justices were trying to figure out whether someone in bankruptcy who owned a car outright could still shield some income from creditors by claiming an allowance for a car payment. Like many seemingly easy issues that come to the court, this one had divided federal appeals courts.

Europe holds on for win

Sense of betrayal

Americans’ rally falls 1/2 point short By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

NEWPORT, Wales (AP) — The pressure was more than Graeme McDowell wanted. The heartbreak was more than Hunter Mahan could handle. The longest Ryder Cup in history came down to the very last match Monday at Celtic Manor, exposing the rawest emotions found in golf and delivering a moment that defines a career — even for a U.S. Open champion. Clinging to a 1-up lead with three holes to play, with Europe needing his match to reclaim the precious gold trophy, McDowell gently sent his 15-foot putt toward the cup and set off a ground-shaking roar when it dropped for birdie. “The best putt I’ve hit in my life,” McDowell said. One hole later, Mahan was well short on the par-3 17th, flubbed a chip and conceded a par to McDowell that gave Europe the 14½ points it needed to take back the cup. It was the first time since 1991 that the Ryder Cup was decided by the final singles

North Carolina coach Butch Davis surveys the field Saturday during the first half against East Carolina

Davis ‘sorry’ he trusted ex-assistant UNC coach Blake By AARON BEARD AP Sports Writer

CHAPEL HILL— With the North Carolina football program being investigated by the NCAA and fighting to salvage its season, coach Butch Davis said Monday he is “sorry” he trusted former assistant coach John Blake. An NCAA probe of improper benefits and possible academic

misconduct has jeopardized several players’ college careers and damaged the university’s reputation. Davis had finally heard enough about Blake on Monday. He publicly criticized his former associate head coach and recruiting coordinator’s “inappropriate” relationship with California-based agent Gary Wichard. “I am very sorry that all of


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The NFL fined Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil $40,000 Monday for his obscene gesture at game officials. The league said Cecil violated a rule that prohibits use of abusive, threatening or insulting language or gestures to game officials. Television cameras caught Cecil using his right hand to make the gesture when officials flagged his defense for a neutral zone infraction during the second quarter Sunday. The penalty gave Denver first-and-goal, and Kyle Orton threw a 2-yard touchdown pass on the next play for a 7-0 lead.

friendship with Wichard came into question amid the NCAA probe, the questions continued Monday. Davis’ comments came after ESPN and Yahoo! Sports, citing unnamed sources, reported that Alabama defensive lineman Marcell Dareus told NCAA investigators that Blake had recommended Wichard in a phone conversa-

Waltrip defends Reutimann’s sportsmanship record By JENNA FRYER


AP Auto Racing Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Mets, Milwaukee and Pittsburgh gave their managers the boot Monday, firing them after disappointing seasons with underperforming teams. The mediocre Mets got rid of manager Jerry Manuel along with general manager Omar Minaya after the team’s fourth consecutive season in which the high-payroll team failed to make the playoffs. Ken Macha was officially dismissed by the Brewers after consecutive losing seasons that following their 2008 postseason appearance as the NL wild card. John Russell was booted by the penurious Pirates after 299 defeats in three seasons, which extended the woebegone franchise’s consecutive losing years to a major league record 18.

this stuff has tainted the football program and, as the head football coach, I take a tremendous amount of responsibility for all the football-related issues,” Davis said. “I’m the head guy, OK? I’m sorry it has affected the football program. But I’m going to tell you what I’m more sorry about: I’m sorry that I trusted John Blake.” And though Blake resigned Sept. 5 after his longtime

CHARLOTTE (AP) — Michael Waltrip defended driver David Reutimann on Monday for intentionally wrecking championship contender Kyle Busch. But the owner of Michael Waltrip Racing found himself walking the fine line of supporting his employee while trying not to alienate one of his team’s most important partners.

Rookie QB Clausen learning tough lessons on the job

Rangers’ Hamilton excited to face old team


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — When Josh Hamilton was drafted No. 1 overall by Tampa Bay, he envisioned himself some day making his playoff debut at Tropicana Field. The major league batting champion just never imagined he’d do in a different uniform. “It’s kind of weird a Hamilton little bit, it just really is, to think about playing the Rays,” Hamilton said Monday when his Texas Rangers worked out in preparation for their first-

AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE (AP) — Jimmy Clausen was better. There were no bobbled snaps, he threw his first NFL touchdown pass and the Carolina Panthers doubled their offensive output from a week earlier. It just wasn’t enough to produce that elusive first win. And the chaotic, failed final drive in New Orleans Sunday that included gaffes with clock management, communication and blitz recognition provided painful lessons for the Carolina rookie. This NFL quarterback thing isn’t easy. “There was a lot of stuff that was happening,” coach John Fox said Monday. “Guys not lined up right, not getting the call. You’ve

But it’s a good thing to see some of the guys I played with, see how well they’re doing. See how well the organization is doing. It’s just cool.” Labeled a can’t-miss prospect when Tampa Bay made him the first pick in the 1999 amateur draft, Hamilton failed to realize his potential with the club because of injuries and a drug suspension that derailed his career. He had not played professionally for more than three years when Cincin-

tion. William H. Beaver II, one of Blake’s attorneys, acknowledged that Blake had had discussions with Dareus, but said that the Crimson Tide standout called Blake to talk about a family illness and to say that agents had approached him. Beaver said that Blake had maintained a relationship with Dareus, but Beaver did not say how many times the two spoke or exactly what was said. “John has testified that he has not functioned in a manner to funnel, push, direct any athlete toward Gary Wichard,” Beaver said. “He has testified to that and provided statements to the NCAA in that manner, in those words. “Whatever Mr. Dareus took from their conversation, I don’t know that anyone can disabuse him of that notion, but that doesn’t make him right.” Last week, Blake’s attorneys confirmed that their client had received several loans from Wichard that they described as one friend helping another through financial trouble. But after saying that the last of the transcations came about three years ago, the attorneys reversed themselves Monday, saying Wichard had loaned money to Blake once in 2008 and twice more in 2009.

They said the money was to pay for the private school tuition for Blake’s teenage son, who is Wichard’s godson. Wichard is scheduled to meet this week with the North Carolina Secretary of State’s office as it continues a separate investigation into whether the state’s sports agent laws have been broken. That office has already interviewed Blake, Tar Heels defensive tackle Marvin Austin — who was at the center of the NCAA’s initial agents focus — and former UNC player Kentwan Balmer, a Wichard client. Howard Silber, Wichard’s attorney, said his client will provide “all financial records between himself and John Blake” when he is interviewed, but he wouldn’t comment further. Davis has denied knowing the extent of the Blake-Wichard relationship, saying last week there was “no cause for concern” when he hired Blake shortly after taking over in Chapel Hill in late 2006. But the school said it learned of the financial transactions when Blake met with NCAA investigators on Aug. 31, leading to Blake’s resignation less than a week later. “There’s a lot of things that are alleged, that are out there, that I can’t begin to tell you whether they are true or not true,” Davis said. “What I can tell you is I have told our coaching staff repeatedly over the last three seasons: Do not get involved with coaches to players to agents. Do not recommend any-

I would’ve fired him.” Davis coached Blake in high school, and the two men worked together with the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys under Jimmy Johnson. Blake was fired after three seasons as head coach at Oklahoma in 1998, when his attorneys said was when his financial troubles escalated. North Carolina (2-2) started the year ranked among the Top 25 with hopes of contending for the Atlantic Coast Conference title, but its roster is seemingly in flux every week. Starting safety Da’Norris Searcy was cleared to return last week after missing the first three games, returning an interception for a touchdown in the win against East Carolina. Fellow safety Deunta Williams returns this week against Clemson after serving a four-game suspension for improper benefits connected to trips, while cornerback Kendric Burney is serving a six-game suspension.

nati selected him in the Rule 5 draft at the winter meetings in December 2006. He spent one season with the Reds before being traded to Texas, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blossomed into a three-time All-Star. The 29-year-old slugger hit .359 with 32 homers and 100 RBIs this season for the AL West champions despite missing 24 games down the stretch because of two broken ribs. He returned to the lineup for the final three games and said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anticipate the injury being a problem in the playoffs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Woke up this morning really, really, really, really sore.

Notre Dame standout was close to engineering one of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest surprises this season. Trailing the Super Bowl champions 16-14, with 3:50 left, Clausen nearly put the Panthers in position for a possible game-winning field goal. On fourth-and-4 from his own 46, he kept a busted play alive and threw a perfect pass to rookie David Gettis along the sideline for 16 yards. After DeAngelo Williams gained 2 yards on the next play, the Panthers were at the Saints 36 and at the edge of kicker John Kasayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s range. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get three yards in three


downs and have an attempt at kicking the winning field goal,â&#x20AC;? Fox said. One play changed everything. Williams, who had a 39yard touchdown on a cutback run earlier in the game, tried the move again. This time he was stuffed by Usama Young for a 4-yard loss, dropping the Panthers out of field goal range. Suddenly the Panthers had to pass as they faced earsplitting noise at the Superdome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were trying to go in and out of personnel groups and it was loud. We really couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear anything through the headsets,â&#x20AC;? Clausen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were trying to signal it. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the greatest communication weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to have.â&#x20AC;?

Reutimann was spun by Busch early in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race in contact for which Busch took responsibility but called accidental. About 100 laps later, when Busch was running seventh, Reutimann seemed to retaliate by intentionally slamming his car into Buschâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s door. The contact caused Busch to bounce off the wall. The damage caused Busch to finish 21st, and he dropped from third to seventh in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship standings. Reutimann was unapologetic after the race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the Chase or not,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to think about who youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re running over when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re running over them.â&#x20AC;? Waltrip said Monday that there is no difference on-track between the 12 title contenders and the 31 drivers not eligible for the championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are 43 drivers on the race track each Sunday, and there is no delineation between Chase participants and non-Chase participants when it comes to respect,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone at Michael Waltrip Racing is working hard to deliver great results to our owners, employees and sponsors. All organizations have a lot at stake each week as we are all measured by our performance and finishing position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When David Reutimannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chance to compete for a win at Kansas was taken away, it set off a series of events that have been well documented.â&#x20AC;? The incident couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have pleased Toyota. The automaker is seeking its first championship at NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest level, and Busch and Denny Hamlin are the only two Toyota representatives in the 12-driver Chase. Hamlin is currently second in the standings, eight points behind Jimmie Johnson, while Busch is 80 points out.

Within a matter of several weeks, the treatment my son received at Ammons Chiropractic ended his severe headaches. All through childhood, my son experienced occasional headaches, usually occurring suddenly, and sometimes severe enough that sleep provided the only relief. At age 15, he began to have headaches more frequently, sometimes several times in a day, and three to four times a week. Conventional medical blood tests revealed no clues, an eye exam and an MRI showed nothing abnormal, but the headaches continued. My son could feel a difference seconds after the ďŹ rst treatment, and within two weeks experienced no more of the debilitating head pain. He also has peace of mind instead of fear of a headache striking at any time. After seeing the beneďŹ ts to my son, I also received orthogonal treatment for neck pain and tightness, a sensation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;crimpingâ&#x20AC;? that I never seemed able to stretch out, and which had plagued me for probably 25 years. One treatment was all it took to relieve the neck tightness â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and after a year, my neck remains comfortable and correctly aligned. Ammons Chiropractic personnel are consummate professionals, careful, methodical, gentle and absolutely committed to seeking solutions. Judith Edmonds Although we cannot guarantee results or predict how fast a patient will respond, Atlas Orthogonal care is profoundly effective in treating these conditions.

Woman whose dad died young can’t feel the pain of others DEAR ABBY: I lost my father suddenly six years ago. He was 56 and I was 25. I had always been Daddy’s girl, and it took me a long time to deal with his death. My problem is I’m unsympathetic to everyone around me now. I’ll give you an example. A woman I work with is 60 and both her parents are still living, although her father is in failing health. She talks endlessly about his poor health and how it takes up all her time. Most people feel bad for her, but I resent the fact that she’s upset that her dad is 86 and dying, when my dad died so young. I feel like I am becoming a cold, unfeeling person and I don’t know how to stop it. Can you help? — UNSYMPATHETIC IN NEW YORK

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: It’s important for you to run your own show. Broaden your horizons and don’t let a lack of confidence stand in the way of your progress. Do your preparation and you will have your finger on the pulse of something worth achieving. Success is only a heartbeat away, if you don’t procrastinate. Your numbers are 3, 8, 13, 20, 26, 39, 45 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Dealing with people in charge will be difficult. Please others, but don’t jeopardize your own position in doing so. You’ll see the good and bad in a relationship that means something to you. Be objective. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll be able to lean on someone who does the same to you when in need. The comfort you get from knowing you have someone in your corner will help you get back up and running. Love is in a high cycle. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Avoid emotional situations that can alter your perception or take you offtrack. Getting along with someone you work with is fine but becoming too personal will work against you. Start a project that interests you. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Put your time and energy into work-related projects. It will enable you to get a good foothold on a position that interests you now, as well as on those you’d like to be involved with in the future. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Showing your skills and potential through the work you do will convince someone you are capable of bigger and better accomplishments. Success awaits you. Communication will provide you with knowledge and answers to questions you may be asked in the future. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take care of emotional matters that have been


bothering you. A passionate approach to your convictions will show everyone how serious you are. A change at home can be a signal to others that you are prepared for anyone who challenges you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep your thoughts to yourself. Don’t engage in talks with anyone who might want to stand in your way. Personal decisions must not be made by someone trying to manipulate you or your situation. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Look at your options. You can make some critical changes if you are willing to push a little harder to get what you want. Love is on the rise. A display of emotions will be seen as brave, not weak or vulnerable. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Family, friends and personal connections will be a little difficult to deal with. Put your efforts into your work and mastermind a plan that enables you to put your skills or services to good use. Get involved in an event or activity that allows you to help others. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Pay attention to any legal, financial or health issues that arise. Getting closer to someone you fancy will be easy if you plan a romantic evening for two. Travel and communication will lead to detours, misunderstandings or added responsibilities. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18): You can obtain something you’ve wanted for some time. Don’t hold back when you have the facts -- share them. As long as you are in control, no one will take advantage of you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll have a way of getting others to see things your way. When it comes to money deals, you will be in control. Negotiations will favor you as long as you are charming and diplomatic. A partnership may challenge you, but your response will be hard to beat.

DEAR UNSYMPATHETIC: I don’t think you are cold, unfeeling or unsympathetic. You may still not be over the loss of your father. The late Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross broke the grieving process into five stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. It might be helpful for you to discuss your concerns with a licensed mental health professional who can help you work this through. And in the meantime, when your co-worker raises the subject of her pain at losing her father — which I’m sure you identify with — explain that it’s too painful for you to hear and excuse yourself.

DEAR NAUSEATED: Allow me to offer a couple. Schedule your breaks so you aren’t all taking one at once, which will make it more difficult for your new boss to join you. And at lunch, break into groups and take your brown bags off the premises if possible. That way, all of you won’t have to tolerate her every day. Frankly, I feel sympathy for the woman. She seems lonely and unaware of the fact that an invisible line separates management from staff, that she’s not one of you and is intruding.



DEAR ABBY: We have a “situation” at work that is becoming intolerable. Our new boss of four months joins us for our coffee breaks and lunches. It is awkward, to say the least. The other secretaries and I look forward to our breaks as a time to unwind (and talk about the salespeople and our bosses if we need to vent). Now we can’t speak freely. Even worse, the woman has atrocious table manners. She talks the entire time she’s eating — chomping, slurping and spraying food all over. It’s disgusting. We brown-bag our lunches because we can’t afford to eat out. We know we can’t tell our boss she isn’t welcome in the break room. Any ideas on how we can handle this? — NAUSEATED IN BLOOMFIELD, N.J.

DEAR ABBY: When my son and his fiancee have a fight, she comes to cry on my shoulder. She says she doesn’t want to talk to her friends because she doesn’t want them to dislike him. Little does she know how stressful this is for me when I get to hear all the details. How can I put a stop to this without hurting her feelings? — TOO MUCH INFORMATION IN IOWA DEAR TOO MUCH INFORMATION: Start by TELLING her how stressful it is when she comes running to you when she and your son argue. Then, explain that as much as you care about her, if she’s going to marry your son, she is going to have to learn to work out her problems with him on her own. You’ll be doing her a favor.



Times Square cowboy has naked ambition: presidency

California prison bans visitor hugging and kissing

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City’s most famous cowboy has been seized by naked ambition. Robert Burck, known far and wide as the Naked Cowboy, intends to announce on Wednesday that he plans to enter the 2012 presidential race. Burck is a tourist attraction known for strumming his guitar in Times Square while wearing only white underwear, boots and a cowboy hat. It’s not his first time around the political block. Burck had barely entered the mayoral race when he dropped out in 2009, complaining about the amount of red tape involved.

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — A minimum security prison in California has banned hugs and kisses because authorities fear visitors are sharing a lot more than affection. Concerns about contraband have prompted officials at Lerdo Minimum Facility in Bakersfield to stop allowing inmates and visitors to share one brief hug and kiss. Sheriff’s Sgt. Ian Silva tells the Bakersfield Californian that in August, four visitors were found with contraband, including a knife, a handcuff key, marijuana, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. The touchy, feely times ended Friday. From now on, guards who see an inmate give a hug or a smooch will end the visit.

Pa. federal inmate sues over discarded sandwiches LORETTO, Pa. (AP) — An inmate of a federal prison in central Pennsylvania is suing, saying he was wrongly punished for “theft” when all he did was take about 30 sandwiches that a vendor threw in the garbage while restocking a dining hall machine. Thirty-five-year-old George Crute III, is suing officials at the Federal Correctional Institution-Loretto over the Feb. 5 incident. Crute says he wrongly lost his “good conduct” time that would have shortened his sentence and his job as a clerk. Prison officials contend Crute took the sandwiches out of the machine. The Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown says a guard claims Crute ran away with a garbage bag when an officer tried to question him. Crute’s lawsuit says the sandwiches were fair game after the vendor tossed.


Fla. man denies cocaine found in buttocks is his BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- When sheriff’s deputies allegedly discovered a bags of marijuana and cocaine between a man’s buttocks, they said he gave a quick explanation. Manatee County deputies said Raymond Stanley Roberts told them “The white stuff is not mine, but the weed is.” Deputies stopped the 25-year-old Wednesday in Bradenton for speeding. Officers said they smelled marijuana and searched him. That’s when they allegedly found a bag of marijuana between Roberts’ buttocks. Officers then discovered another bag in there; the report said it contained 27 pieces of rock cocaine. The Bradenton Herald reported Roberts was arrested for drug possession and has bonded out of jail.

Christ gives us hope for eternity Q: My friend believes that when we die we don’t go to heaven or anything like that, but we live our lives all over again, perhaps in other parts of the universe. Does the Bible say anything that might support this? -- J.J. A: Your friend apparently believes in what is called “reincarnation” -- the idea that when we die we come back to life on earth (or some other place) again and again, instead of going to heaven. The idea of reincarnation isn’t found in the Bible, nor does anything in the Bible support it. In fact, the Bible clearly teaches that when we die our mortal lives on this earth are over, and we will enter the presence of God. The Bible says, “Man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). Why is this? The reason is because only one thing can keep us out of heaven, and that is our sin. But when we know Christ, our sins have been forgiven and cleansed -- totally and completely. Jesus Christ was sinless, because He was God in human flesh. But when He died on the cross, all our sins were transferred to Him -- and His perfect righteousness was transferred to us. The Bible says, “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:21). Encourage your friend to ask himself why he finds this idea appealing. The reason, I suspect, is because down inside he knows he’s not perfect, and somehow he hopes he’ll have enough time to become better. Urge him instead to discover what Jesus Christ has already done for him.

Reference to said plat is hereby made for a more perfect description of said tract. Save and except any releases, deeds of release or prior conveyances of record. Said property is commonly known as 3226 Wicker Street Extension, Sanford, NC 27330. Third party purchasers must pay the excise tax, and the court costs of Forty-Five Cents (45¢) per One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) pursuant to NCGS 7A-308(a)(1). A cash deposit (no personal checks) of five percent (5%) of the purchase price, or Seven Hundred Fifty Dollars ($750.00), whichever is greater, will be required at the time of the sale. Following the expiration of the statutory upset bid period, all the remaining amounts are immediately due and owing. Said property to be offered pursuant to this Notice of Sale is being offered for sale, transfer and conveyance "AS IS WHERE IS." There are no representations of warranty relating to the title or any physical, environmental, health or safety conditions existing in, on, at, or relating to the property being offered for sale. This sale is made subject to all prior liens, unpaid taxes, any unpaid land transfer taxes, special assessments, easements, rights of way, deeds of release, and any other encumbrances or exceptions of record. To the best of the knowledge and belief of the undersigned, the current owner(s) of the property is/are Charles A. Brown. An Order for possession of the property may be issued pursuant to G.S. 45-21.29 in favor of the purchaser and against the party or parties in possession by the clerk of superior court of the county in which the property is sold.

Reasons of such inability to convey include, but are not limited to, the filing of a bankruptcy petition prior to the confirmation of the sale and reinstatement of the loan without the knowledge of the trustee. If the validity of the sale is challenged by any party, the trustee, in their sole discretion, if they believe the challenge to have merit, may request the court to declare the sale to be void and return the deposit. The purchaser will have no further remedy.
