SANFORD — Barring an unexpected setback, bulldozers and workers will start assembling on the campus of Lee County High School as early as mid-May to begin renovations on the 57-year-old campus. The Lee County Board of Education on Tuesday approved the final contract with American South Contractors of Sanford to completely renovate the campus at a total cost of $20,439,688 at a called board meeting at the Heins Education Building. The meeting was called to reaffirm the contract, with several amendments, after the Lee County Board of Commissioners decided last week to increase funding for the project by $2.6 million to compensate for a winning bid of $20,479,000, almost $1 million higher than the county had anticipated. Along with that increase, commissioners proclaims that

Board approves Oct. 9 Family Day at Raleigh Exec

SANFORD — After attracting 3,500 people in its inaugural run, Family Day @ The Jetport is poised to become even larger this year, organizers say. The festival will return on Oct. 9 with another full day of aviation-related activities and special events at Raleigh Exec: The Raleigh Executive Jetport at Sanford-Lee County. Dan Swanson, airport manager for Raleigh Exec, said the governing board recently approved this year’s event and intends to make Family Day an annual fixture on the local calendar. “This year’s Family Day will be even bigger and better than before,” said Swanson. “By the time we decided to do it last year, we were fairly close to the date. For it to be as successful as it was is a testament to the people working on the project. “We’ve been planning this one ever since last year’s ended. Now, we’re working on getting commitments from organizations that are already enthusiastic about participating.” Swanson said visitors can expect a similar mix of plane rides, aircraft on display and children’s activities.


School district earns another finance award

SANFORD — Lee County Schools has won the Association of School Business Officials International’s Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting Program for excellence in the preparation and issuance of the fiscal year end 2009 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. The certificate was designed by ASBO International to enable school business officials to achieve a high standard of financial reporting. The award, the highest recognition for school district financial operations offered by ASBO, is only conferred to school systems that have met or exceeded the standards of the program. By preparing and presenting a CAFR, Lee County Schools validated the credibility of the school district’s operations and measured the integrity and technical competence of business staff. Lee County Schools has won this award each year since 2001. Upon receiving notification of the award, Lee County Schools Chief Financial Officer Tammy Howington said, “This prestigious award is a reflection of the competency and dedication of both our finance department staff as well as business office employees located in each school throughout the district. While it is personally rewarding to our finance staff, it is also a key indicator to the community of the financial integrity and efficient operations of Lee County Schools.”

Hudson paralleled the truths in Park’s book by saying that when someone takes something that doesn’t belong to him, he leaves part of his soul behind ... that when someone destroys something needlessly, he is uncivilized; and that we profit by our own generosity. He told them that a reputation for integrity requires constant effort. He added, “You are blessed if someone in your family or a friend or a teacher has faith in you or has encouraged you. .,,, even cared enough to push you.” And of teachers, he referred to a significant truth detailed in the book: “You honor me by giving me an opportunity to learn.” Hudson was invited to the school by librarian Sue Cox to add dimensions to what the students learned from the book.

Four solid choices for school board

R.V. Hight Special Projects Editor


ne academic definition describes success as the progressive realization of worthy goals. If that’s a fair assessment, then Lee County Schools is, in innumerable ways, a success story. That’s a reflection of many things, not the least of which are the system’s dedicated teachers and staff and the students who truly care about learning. But it’s also a reflection of the leadership — the policysetting board of education and the superintendent who leads and manages the system and helps set the agenda for the future. The current Lee County Board of Education, most of the pieces of which have been in place for six years, and this superintendent — Dr. Jeff Moss has been here just more than a year — have come together and begun to generate momentum for our schools. Despite some rocky setbacks and a more than a few awkward missteps (and a few remaining hurdles), our schools have a good story to tell. There are problems, but the leadership has tended to respond with results-oriented solutions. But there’s room for improvement and a demonstrated need for change in order for the story to get better. Not wholesale change, Smith as has been the case in prior years, but specific course alterations that will require specific kinds of leadership. What this board needs, frankly, is more communication, more openness and honesty, and a greater willingness to embrace accountability. With those elements in place, and with a goal of engaging parents and the rest of the Bonardi community in its sights, the board can restore and maintain full trust within the system and within the community. Our classrooms can only benefit. Who’s best among the seven candidates in this year’s election to help make those subtle course corrections? The Herald believes curAkinosho rent board member Linda Smith, plus any combination of former board member John Bonardi and Dana Atkins and Mark Akinosho for the other two four-year seats, will make the most positive impact moving forward. While we were divided on which two of the latter three are the best fit, it was clear from our interviews Atkins with the candidates that Smith provides the board with what it needs most right now: a listening ear, integrity and a willingness to learn from its mistakes. Of all the former educators who have served on our local BOE, Smith has been the best. More than anyone on the board, Smith “walks the talk” of education. She’s a proven commodity who can work inside-out and from the outside in to assess and address the complexities of the needs of a school system. While we also believed that incumbent Ellen Mangum and challengers Shannon Gurwitch and Kim Lilley weren’t what the board needed to continue its upward track, it’s evident that Bonardi, Atkins and Akinosho who have the capacity to make the board better. Bonardi, who didn’t seek re-election after his four-year term ended in 2008, was the most candid of the candidates in assessing the current board’s — and the system’s — real needs. His time on the sidelines has re-energized him, we believe, and his background (construction), experience (four years on the board), insight (he has a son in the system) and perspective would make him effective in another term. The time away from a board seat hasn’t kept him from being able to pinpoint the unique challenges of the system, particularly as it relates to facilities. Neither Atkins nor Akinosho has experience as an elected official, but both deserve serious consideration. The board does need new voices, and among all the candidates, Atkins presented the most new ideas and the freshest perspective on what’s ailing our schools. She’s a great communicator and values being engaged as a parent. Her learning curve would be small and her capacity for contributions would be great, and her ability to quickly identify inequities and redundancies — and exercise common sense — would serve her well on the board. When he sought a seat a year ago, Akinosho was our favorite candidate. We’re troubled that someone so positive aligned himself with ardent naysayers Gurwitch and Lilley, but it doesn’t take away from the passion he has for education and for doing the right thing. His life experience — he’s a pastor, a business owner and the father of three children who were offered scholarships at Ivy League-caliber schools — and his dedication to task would add to the quality of the board in many ways. Voters are fortunate to have seven quality individuals offering themselves for service, and especially fortunate to have four such outstanding prospects for the three seats being contested in Tuesday’s election. The four — Smith, Bonardi, Atkins and Akinosho — are so good that we couldn’t narrow it down to three. Voters will, of course, and as long as they come from that small pool, our schools will be in good shape.

More on Obamacare


s President Barack Obama is attempting to steamroll yet another enormous policy change through Congress against the best interests of Americans, we would be well-advised to keep abreast of the frauds that are already being exposed about Obamacare. Last week, reality dealt Obamacare twin blows — not that Obama will care. An analysis inside his own administration and a report from New York state shed the grim light of reality on this monstrosity before its Draconian provisions have even gone into effect. Economic experts at the Health and Human Services Department issued a report last week, conveniently after Obamacare was shoved through, finding that though more people will end up with health insurance (many of them against their will, of course), costs are going to increase. Shocker. How could coverage not increase with the legal mandate forcing unwilling people to buy health insurance coverage? Today millions entitled to assistance don’t avail themselves of it, but Obamacare will presumably be different because there will be a penalty for non-coverage — an idea that Obama expediently mocked during the primary campaign. But costs will also increase? I thought Obama promised to bend the cost curve down — that he wouldn’t add one dime to the deficit with Obamacare. But two dimes or a quarter are apparently a different matter. The HHS analysis found Obamacare will raise projected spending by about 1 percent over 10 years — and this is without even considering the impact of numerous gimmicks and camouflaged items, such as the Medicare “doctor fix.” There are presently scheduled 21 percent cuts in Medicare reimbursements to physicians, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has promised that they won’t be implemented. What a sham! The report also revealed that Obamacare could drive 15 percent of hospitals into the red and possibly jeopardize access to care for seniors. Meanwhile, The New York Times reported last week that New York’s experience with provisions that parallel Obamacare do not portend well for Obamacare. According to the Times (it’s amazing it admitted this): “New York’s insurance system has been a working laboratory for the core provision of the new federal health care law — insurance even for those who are already sick and facing huge medical bills — and an expensive lesson in unplanned consequences.” Translation: In 1993, New York forced insurance companies to cover individuals and small groups regardless of preexisting illnesses. It also forced insurers to charge the same premium rates for the same benefits in every region of the state regardless of the demographics of those covered and the different risks

that might exist. How about those “unplanned consequences”? You guessed it: “Premiums skyrocketed.” Of course they did, because the state grossly interfered with market forces by prohibiting insurers from using risk assessment to set their premiums — just as Obama, in his beneficence, will be doing for all of us under Obamacare. Healthy people began to subsidize people who needed more health care. Duh. The healthier customers began to drop out, and the pool of covered people shrank and mostly included high-risk people. Since 2001, the number of people buying comprehensive individual policies through HMOs has dropped dramatically, from 128,000 to 31,000. And “New York has the highest average annual premiums for individual policies: $6,630 for single people and $13,296 for families in mid-2009, more than double the nationwide average.” ... Analysts, the Times said, conclude that this mandate “could prove meaningless if the government does not vigorously enforce the penalties” or if people opt out and pay the penalties. Well, of course many of the healthy ones are going to opt out, because the penalties will probably be but a fraction of the premiums. But these twin blows to Obamacare barely scratch the surface of the horror that awaits us. Respected health care expert Sally Pipes warns that Obamacare will add strain to an already burdened system by increasing the load on family doctors while imposing price controls on government plans. Those controls will inevitably be imposed on private plans, too, as they were in another state — Massachusetts — that is a partial microcosm of Obamacare. So we’ll have increased demand for medical care with price controls, which will necessitate rationing. But making matters worse, doctors are going to retire early; you’ve surely heard of the 2009 poll by Investor’s Business Daily finding that 45 percent of doctors would consider quitting if Obamacare passed. You think the Obamacrats will try to amend the law to force doctors to keep their jobs? Why not? This living Constitution can be pretty handy in a pinch. Can you believe there are actually Republicans out there contemplating forgoing a full repeal?

’ve found that among the most fervent sports fans are those who follow auto racing, in particular, NASCAR racing. There’s a new book out titled, “Real NASCAR — White Lightning, Red Clay, and Big Bill France,” written by Daniel S. Pierce who is an associate professor of history at the University of North Carolina at Asheville. The book is well written and the author has done an admirable job in capturing the history and spirit of the sport from its earliest beginnings through the early 1970s. It’s a book that, well, captured my attention to a greater extent than I might have imagined. Once I began reading, it was difficult to put it down. I was particularly intrigued as to the connection between racing and moonshine. That’s right. Moonshine. Pierce explained the connection in a news release from UNC-Asheville. “When I first started doing research on NASCAR, I thought I would prove that the whole moonshine connection was overblown and exaggerated,” said Pierce. “As I put it in the introduction, however, ‘The deeper I looked, the more liquor I found.’ Bootleggers and moonshiners were at the very core of early Piedmont stock car racing and the early days of NASCAR. The illegal industry not only provided the most talented and successful drivers, but the best mechanics, car owners, promoters and race track builders and owners.” But this book, published by UNC Press, is about much more than the connection between NASCAR and moonshine. The book details how one man, Bill France, was a driving force in the sport that helped to bring NASCAR into prominence. It was fascinating to read about the early personalities of NASCAR, individuals like Buck Baker, the Flock brothers, Bobby Isaac, David Pearson, Lee Petty, Fireball Roberts, Wendell Scott, Curtis Turner — and, yes, our own Herb Thomas of Olivia. It was fun to read about the various race tracks, including those in the Carolinas. NASCAR has a colorful history — and this book gives great insight as to the triumphs and struggles of a sport with a definite southern beginning. If you’re a NASCAR fan, especially a fan of the earlier days of the sport, this is a book that you’ll want for your collection. In fact, if you’re simply a fan of NASCAR today, you’ll gain a greater appreciation of how the sport evolved in those early years.

that the tourney had met its $50,000 goal, despite reservations in the weeks before that cash-starved locals would be reticent to cough up donations. “I wish the rest of the line items in the budget would be like the golf tournament,” Hedrick said. Club officials typically expect to draw $50,000 in the golf tournament, which asks locals to chip in to register and compete at the winding Tobacco Road course. But 2010 seemed different. The nonprofit had lost all of its federal grant funding, which usually makes up roughly half of its $600,000 to $800,000 yearly budget. Sanford city officials had at least temporarily stalled talks to “bail out” the ailing organization with a $50,000 injection, and club leaders had been forced to cancel more than two weeks of its popular summer program and hike its rates. Nonprofit heads are still waiting to see if Lee County leaders, facing a budget shortage of their own, will have a different reaction than Sanford and offer up much-needed dollars. “In light of how the economy has been lately, we didn’t really anticipate meeting the goal that we have in years past,” Hedrick said of Tuesday’s tournament. “But the community has really come out.” Traditionally, the golf tournament is the Boys and Girls Clubs’ biggest fundraiser of the year. 2010 will, at least, keep that tradition. Tournament-goers enjoyed a light breeze and sunny skies for Tuesday’s event, which pitted competitors against one of the area’s most challenging, and quirky, popular courses. Organizers planned two tee times at 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., with nearly 180 golfers on hand. Hedrick said the better-than-expected fundraiser will go to pay operational expenses at the Boys and Girls Clubs. It’s not going to be enough to save its summer program from an overhaul though, he said. The Boys and Girls Clubs was set to tally its final fundraising totals Tuesday evening and this morning, announcing the total sometime today. Hedrick, meanwhile, will be awaiting that moment with anticipation. “This has been encouraging, very encouraging, to see this response from the community,” he said.

they would use lottery funding of up to $350,000 over the next 5 years to pay for the extra costs. But in a letter to Superintendent Jeff Moss, County Manager John Crumpton stated the county would use “current funds that the county contributed to the schools’ capital needs” instead since taking lottery funds would require approval from both boards. Moss added that he didn’t anticipate any lottery funding changes from Gov. Perdue either, because doing so would require approval from the N.C. General Assembly. “I feel comfortable that the lottery funds are going to stay the way it is,” he said. “I don’t see the legislature bringing that up again.” The contract must now go before the Local Governments Commission on May 4. If approved, closing would commence a week later,

To: My Angel

Sunrise 1-6-87 Sunset 4-26-09

Today, I dreamt of angels Who carried me away To the holy land of Jesus God talked to me today. I held her, oh, so gently She had passed away My tears continued falling On her gown that dreadful day. For a year, I nursed my anger Consumed by endless grief I even hoped that I might die To bring about relief. In a lonely cemetery By her grave, one day I was sadly placing flowers And felt the urge to pray. As I knelt beside her gravesite I felt a breath of spring The sky lit up with angels What comfort it did bring. A voice broke through the silence It brought about release My little daughter spoke to me My soul was filled with peace Her words were sweet as honey She said, “I didn’t die For now, I live with Jesus So, Carla Mac please don’t cry.” My seed dwells in heaven Of that, I can be sure For today she walks with Jesus He’s taking care of her. Love you Always, Mom

on May 11. American South Contractors representatives said they would start immediately following closing. The district will likely hold a groundbreaking in June on the site, after the school year ends. The project will be completed in phases, Moss said, with parts of the renovated areas hosting classes as early as August. Construction of new buildings on the campus will start in fall 2011, he said, and the entire project will likely be completed by summer 2012. The final contract includes several additions and subtractions from the original plans. Among the 14 subtractions, which totaled $515,312, were a $61,312 savings in classroom furniture costs, $15,000 in savings to kill plans for benches in the campus’s courtyard, $15,000 in savings to change the color of the tint of new windows from blue to gray, $11,000 in savings to keep the existing scoreboards in the new gym and $30,000 in savings to refinish

the existing bleachers in the old gym rather than replace them. With the funds saved by the deductions, the school board opted to build a new fieldhousestyle concession area at Paul B. Gay Stadium similar to the one at Southern Lee High School for $459,000, and add an integrated locking system for the entire campus for $17,000. Also, the remaining $210,000 will be used for upgrades to McLeod Auditorium, including new seats, sound system, curtains and painting. Including the cost of asbestos removal ($75,000), Architectural and engineering fees ($1,153,000), contingency ($400,000) and cost of issuance ($400,000), the county will borrow $22,677,688 as part of a funding package from BB&T that includes lowinterest federal bonds. By the end of the 15year loan, the county will have spent $26,053,557 on the project including interest.

the kids decided that Winton needed a hobby to focus much of his energy away from farming. The three of them bought a potters wheel, a kiln and books on the subject and sent Winton off to the garage to find more productive use of his time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why they got me a potterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wheel,â&#x20AC;? Winton said and smiled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so I would leave them alone.â&#x20AC;? Within six months, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winton had a whole garage full of pottery.â&#x20AC;? Rosa recalled while Winton laughed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what pottery was supposed to look like,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had all these sick little pieces of pottery. I had never seen it made before.â&#x20AC;? Such a lack of interaction with other potters was deliberate and eventually paid off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you get your own style and your own shapes,â&#x20AC;? Rosa said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;then you can see a potter.â&#x20AC;? Wintonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style of hand painting and carving faces, houses and other images into his pots eventually made his work stand out from the others. Two of Wintonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature details came about accidentally.

Potter Rosa Eugene works the kiln at her home in Cowpens, S.C. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My pots were heavy,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I had to carve away the clay to lighten them.â&#x20AC;? Removing clay through carving became a detail that delighted collectors. A woman with arthritis asked for a cup that would accommodated all her fingers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I pulled the handle straight,â&#x20AC;? Winton said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;there were all these little bitty clay pieces on the floor. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to throw them away.â&#x20AC;? Instead, his hog farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience kicked in and he fashioned pig tail handles. Winton used expensive commercial glazes at first, wanting to use a

â&#x20AC;&#x153;pinch of this, and a pinch of that.â&#x20AC;? Rosa used her chemistry background to assemble precise mixing procedures that allowed them to make their own glazes and Winton eventually agreed to let Rosa make all the glazes. Wintonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glaze cost-cutting plan was not working out â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d put it in the fire, and it would just run off because the consistency was wrong.â&#x20AC;? Eventually, Winton gave in to the scientific method of mixing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got down on my knees and begged her to do it for me,â&#x20AC;? Winton recalled. Eventually, the couple gath-

ered three kilns â&#x20AC;&#x201D; electric, gas and wood-fired. But, as hard as Winton worked, he could not fill all those kilns and Rosa began sculpting clay as well. Their work often goes against what experts and academicians say about art â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that artistry and function donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always go hand in hand. Winton and Rosa Eugene are not always surprised to discover that enthusiastic pottery lovers and collectors from around the globe would beg to differ. As always, the work â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and lives â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of Winton and Rosa Eugene remain a close collaboration.

Civil War vaults on display at Archives Lesser-known details of war will â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;prove far more compellingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Beyond the famous battles of the Civil War, there was chaos. The governor of Kansas was frantically pleading for ammunition to quell guerrilla warfare, citizens in Missouri were appealing to Army officials when a U.S. flag was ripped from a church rooftop, and citizens in Virginia were asking the governor for arms to fight Union sympathizers. Stories like these emerge from documents that go on rare public view Friday at the National Archives in Washington as the nation prepares to mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Filmmaker Ken Burns took an early look Tuesday and said the lesser-known details and evidence of the war will prove far more compelling than dry dates and facts from history books. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the way we tell our history is from the top down â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we see American history ... as kind of a

succession of presidential administrations, punctuated by wars,â&#x20AC;? Burns said. That begins to change, he said, when people see original records and photographs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we can touch their diaries or touch their records, then they connect to us in a way that all that other homework doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? Burns said, who spent weeks at the archives 20 years ago researching and filming for his landmark series, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Civil War.â&#x20AC;? The exhibit draws from millions of Civil War records, letters and photographs at the archives. Many documents on display are reproductions, though some originals also are on view, along with touch-screen interactives. They are arranged by theme to tell such stories as secession and slavery, international connections to the war and how some women fought disguised as men. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too much to display all at once. The second half will open in November, exploring the warâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consequences. Next year, the 6,000 square-foot exhibit will begin touring nationally during most of the anni-

versary years of the war, with stops in Michigan, Texas and Nebraska. There were no declarations of war or peace treaties to display from the Civil War. The Union never recognized the Confederacy as a separate nation. One of the most significant documents on view is Virginiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original ordinance of secession. Virginia initially refused to join seven states that seceded after President Abraham Lincolnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s election but passed the measure in April 1861. Other documents show how Lincoln reacted, how the Confederate States were organized and how both sides grappled for international support. Leaders who lined up on opposite sides of the battlefield often had close connections before the war. Exhibit designers created social networking pages like Facebook to show how Union Gen. George McClellan once was a protege of Confederate President Jefferson Davis, for example. As for the sensitive issue of slavery, curator Bruce Bustard said they want the documents to speak for themselves.

A comparison of the U.S. Constitution and the Constitution of the Confederacy demonstrates their remarkable similarity, he said, except for a reference to God, a six-year presidency and an explicit right to hold slaves as property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want people to look at the documents, read the documents, ask questions about them and then ultimately make up their own minds,â&#x20AC;? Bustard said. Although two Southern governors â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bob McDonnell in Virginia and Gov. Haley Barbour in Mississippi â&#x20AC;&#x201D; recently seemed to downplay the role of slavery, Burns said there is no question it was at the root of the conflict. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just have to distinguish between whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the manipulation of history,â&#x20AC;? Burns said, referring to Confederate History Month celebrations that neglect to mention slavery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The great ennobling outcome of Civil War was not just the end of a secessionist movement but the liberating of 4 million Americans who happened to be owned by other Americans.â&#x20AC;?

Ohio sheriff pulls gun permit from N.C. man arrested near Air Force One

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An Ohio sheriff suspended the concealed weapons permit of an armed man who authorities say told them he wanted to see the president in North Carolina, and a report given to The Associated Press said the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office recently lectured the man about proper gun handling. McVey Coshocton County Sheriff Tim Rogers cited Joseph Sean McVeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrest Sunday for the permit suspension. He described his action as a suspension pending the outcome of the North Carolina investigation. McVey had a handgun at his side when he was spotted by police in an Asheville Regional Airport parking lot Sunday just after Air Force One departed, police said. His car was loaded with police equipment, including a siren and lights, and had a note with formulas used for firing a rifle with a

Police arrest Joseph McVey, left, charging him with going armed in terror of the public, a misdemeanor, in Asheville Sunday after authorities spotted him with a gun in a parking lot as Air Force One, with President Barack Obama aboard, was departing. scope, authorities said. McVey, whose mother lives in Asheville, was being held Tuesday under a $100,000 secured bond on a misdemeanor charge of going armed in terror of the public. Rogers sent the letter to McVey at the Buncombe County jail Monday. The suspension was not the first time the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department had contact with McVey about his handling of a gun. A sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office report released to the AP said deputies ques-

tioned McVey in January. McVey, a member of a volunteer group that helps police and firefighters, stopped to see if a couple who had pulled to the side of the road needed help, according to the report. After a man at the scene refused to respond, McVey went back to his car, retrieved a .40-caliber handgun and placed it in his holster so that it was visible, the report said. He walked back to the car, where the man was talking to the woman through her

window, the report said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I asked if there had been a wreck or what had happened. He swore at me and came towards me,â&#x20AC;? the report quotes McVey as saying. McVey said he stepped back, called a dispatcher on the radio, explained the situation and was told he could go. Shortly after McVey left the scene, sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies pulled him over at gunpoint until the situation could be sorted out, the report said.

Man convicted, faces sentencing in rape case RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A North Carolina man has been convicted in a rape case for which another man served nearly 19 years in prison. Multiple media outlets reported that 54-year-old William Jackson Neal was convicted in a Wayne County courtroom on Tuesday for breaking into a home in 1987 and raping a 12-year-old girl. Dwayne Dail of Goldsboro was convicted in 1989 after the girl identified him as the man who raped her two years earlier. A small sample of semen found on a nightgown showed Dail wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the rapist. He was released in August 2007. Dail and the victim asked the judge in the case to apply the maximum penalty for Neal. Sentencing is scheduled for Wednesday. Neal faces life in prison.

Black charter s chool leaders object to state policy RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The heads of North Carolina charter schools enrolling mostly black students say state academic achievement goals are designed to squeeze them out of existence. The Association of African American Charter School Administrators said it filed a complaint this month with the U.S. Education Department. The school administrators say rules the State Board of Education adopted in December aim to drive blackmajority charter schools out of business to make room for white-run schools. The state says it will close charter schools whose students donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t absorb at least a yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of material each year and where 40 percent fail standardized tests. The federal agency couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t confirm it received the complaint.

STATE BRIEFS Park service to hold hearings on beach access

KILL DEVIL HILLS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The National Park Service is holding public hearings to gather comments on its plan for managing access to a portion of North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Outer Banks. The park service said on its Web site that a hearing on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Off-Road Vehicle Management Plan and Environmental Impact Study will be held on Tuesday at the Wright Brothers National Memorial First Flight Centennial Pavilion in Kill Devil Hills. Hearings are also scheduled for Wednesday in Raleigh and Thursday in Hampton, Va., for tourists who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live along the beach. When the plan is completed, it will be in effect for 10 to 15 years.

Small-loan late fees pushed away by state advocates

RALEIGH (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; North Carolina consumer advocates have pushed away attempts to allow some installment loan providers to charge late fees to customers. A legislative study committee agreed instead on Tuesday to recommend the state banking commissioner

evaluate further the health of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 79 consumer finance lenders before the Legislature decides if changes are needed. The companies already issue loans of up to $10,000 with interest rates capped at 36 percent and receive some fees, but they argue theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re losing money on the average loan. Al Ripley with the North Carolina Justice Center pointed to a state report showing a majority of lenders are profitable. Sen. David Hoyle had floated the idea of a maximum $20 late fee but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discussed in the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final meeting.

Soldiers return to Bragg from Haiti deployment FORT BRAGG (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A North Carolina-based Army battalion is heading home after being deployed to Haiti for earthquake relief. The Army said more than 600 soldiers from the 2nd Battalion of the 325th Infantry of the 82nd Airborne Division was leaving Haiti starting Tuesday. The soldiers have been working on disaster relief efforts since Jan. 17, just days after an earthquake devastated the country. The battalion helped with food and shelter distribution and provided security for de-

bris removal in Port-Au-Prince. Soldiers distributed more than 26,000 shelters, 2 million prepared meals, 3 million pounds of rice, 27,000 family food packages and 24,000 bottles of water. They also helped with the medical treatment of more than 2,000 patients.

Fence between homeless groups forces shutdown GASTONIA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A North Carolina homeless shelter is shutting down after complaints of bad behavior in the alley outside prompted a Salvation Army shelter next door to put up a fence. The Gaston Gazette reported Tuesday the fence is forcing the nonprofit Gaston Rescue Mission to shut down after 15 years in the back of a building accessible only through a narrow walkway. The alley runs along property owned by the Salvation Army Center of Hope next door. The Salvation Army is spending $50,000 on a brick wall and wrought iron fence after complaints about homeless people having sex, urinating and fighting in the alley. The Gaston Rescue Mission houses people who are intoxicated or using drugs, while the Salvation Army refuses people with those problems. The Gaston Rescue Mission hopes to find a new home.

Burr faces 3 primary foes By MIKE BAKER Associated Press Writer

RALEIGH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr is already sitting on some $5 million in campaign cash for a re-election bid, and he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen much need to drain those coffers for his Republican primary. Burr has drawn three GOP opponents for the May 4 campaign but has done little to address them. Democrats vying for his seat, meanwhile, are already taking aim directly at him. While Republican challenger Eddie Burks has some qualms about Burrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policies, the Asheville city councilman said he is more concerned about the lawmakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electability. He argued that the American public is frustrated with incumbents and unwilling to re-elect them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have had no animostiy toward Sen. Burr,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership differences between the two of us, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about Eddie Burks versus Richard Burr. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about North Carolina and the nation keeping that conservative vote in the United States Senate.â&#x20AC;?

Hendersonville businessman Brad Jones, another Republican competitor, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe Burr has been a conservative vote. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s criticized Burr for not disputing global warming and for going along with the massive bank bailout at the height of the financial crisis. He said Burr and other GOP leaders essentially turned the party into one that resembles the Democrats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be trusted,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything when he had the chance to stand up and be counted.â&#x20AC;? A third candidate, Larry Linney, did not return a call seeking comment and does not appear to have a campaign website. Linney is a former state legislator and disbarred lawyer who was once convicted of stealing $10,000 from a dead clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate. An Elon University survey released last Friday showed that 37 percent of those interviewed approved of how Burr is handling his job. About 28 percent disapproved, while 35 percent didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. A similar poll conducted in February showed

that 40 percent approved of Burrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, about 35 percent disapproved and 25 percent didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. Burr has been steadily building a vault of cash for his re-election. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spent about 44 percent of the money heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raised during this election cycle. By comparison, Republican Sen. Elizabeth Dole had spent roughly threequarters of her money by this time two years ago, leaving her with $3 million on hand. Dole went on to easily win the primary but lose the general election to Kay Hagan, the Democrat who now holds the seat. Burr has gone on television with an ad about the constituents heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s served. Burks, however, is skeptical. He said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heard that Burr is unresponsive and inaccessible. Burks said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a matter of leadership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He certainly hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become the type of leader Jesse Helms was,â&#x20AC;? Burks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that was our hope from all of us in the Republican party six years ago. That hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been realized.â&#x20AC;? A campaign spokeswoman for Burr said he was unavailable to talk with a reporter.

Goldman execs defend conduct to Senate

WASHINGTON (AP) — Goldman Sachs officials strongly disputed barbed accusations Tuesday from U.S. senators that the firm cashed in on the housing meltdown by crafting a strategy to bet against home loan securities while misleading its own investors. The investment bank officials ran into a wall of bipartisan wrath before the Senate panel investigating Goldman’s role in the national financial crisis. Democratic Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan accused Wall Street firms of selling securities they wouldn’t invest in themselves. That’s “unbridled greed in the absence of the cop on the beat to control it,” he said. Democrats hope rising public anger with Wall Street will help them push new financial regulations past Republican objections — a pending overhaul bill that Levin said would “put a cop back on the Wall Street beat.” Among the officials testifying Tuesday was Fabrice Tourre, a 31-yearold Goldman trader who, along with the firm, has been charged with civil fraud by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The SEC says Tourre

The commission alleged that Tourre told investors the hedge fund, Paulson & Co., actually bought into the investments. Tourre testified that he doesn’t recall telling investors that. “I deny — categorically — the SEC’s allegation,”

Tourre said. “And I will defend myself in court against this false claim.” Through hours of questioning, the executives stood their ground. They rejected the senators’ accusations that Goldman helped fuel the financial crisis that plunged the country into recession. “We did not cause the financial crisis. ... I do not think that we did anything wrong,” said Michael Swenson, who runs Goldman’s structured products

group trading. Tourre said: “I am saddened and humbled by what happened in the market in 2007 and 2008. ... But I believe my conduct was proper.” At times, the senators and the witnesses, who have long marketed complex mortgage investments like collateralized debt obligations, seemed to struggle to explain themselves to the other side. The senators cast Goldman’s efforts to bet

against securities as a contributor to the crisis. By contrast, the Goldman officials described their use of such trading tools as a way to reduce risks for the company and its clients. In a brash January 2007 e-mail, Tourre called himself “The fabulous Fab ... standing in the middle of all these complex ... exotic trades he created.” At one point, about a half dozen protesters entered the committee room, dressed in prison stripes with names on signs around their necks of Tourre and Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein, who was scheduled to testify later in the day. “Fabulous Fab is not so fab when he takes from the poor,” the protesters spoke as a chorus before the hearing started. “We want to see these guys behind bars.” They hissed at times during the testimony. In the wake of the SEC’s civil complaint earlier this month, the panel is looking into allegations that a Goldman strategy to profit from the housing meltdown contributed to the financial crisis. Levin, the committee chairman, said actions by Goldman Sachs wreaked havoc on the economy. “Its

conduct brings into question the whole system of Wall Street,” he said of the investment banking firm, one of the few to emerge from the financial crisis larger and stronger than before. Levin pressed Daniel Sparks, the former head of Goldman’s mortgages department, on whether the company felt it had a moral obligation to disclose to clients that it was making side bets against the same investments it was selling them. Sparks said that the clients “should look at the assets themselves” that make up the mortgage-based securities they are buying. “Clients who did not want to participate in that deal did not,” he said of one particular transaction. Levin shot back: “I don’t think you want to answer. You’re not going to answer the question, it’s obvious.” The hearing came as the Senate grappled with Democratic-sponsored legislation to overhaul the nation’s financial regulation system and prevent another meltdown. The legislation would crack down on the kind of lightly regulated housing market investments that helped set off the crisis.

More drilling planned at site of oil leak in Gulf

Obama touts wind energy, stimulus help during tour

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Crews will begin drilling by Thursday as part of a $100 million effort to take the pressure off of a blown-out well that is spewing 42,000 gallons of crude oil a day into the Gulf of Mexico off the Louisiana coast, BP said Tuesday. BP was leasing the Deepwater Horizon, the offshore oil rig that exploded last week, triggering the spill. Company spokesman Robert Wine said it will take up to three months to drill a relief well from another rig recently brought to the site where the Deepwater Horizon sank after the blast. Most of the 126 workers on board escaped; 11 are missing and presumed dead. No cause has been determined. The oil is coming from a pipe rising from the seabed nearly a mile underwater. So far crews using robotic subs have been unable to activate a shutoff device at the head of the well. A kink in the pipe is keeping oil from flowing even more heavily. If the well cannot be closed, almost 100,000 barrels of oil could spill into the Gulf before the

MOUNT PLEASANT, Iowa (AP) — Back in the state that jump-started his White House bid, President Barack Obama sought to reassure wary Iowa voters with a message he hopes will resonate in the fall elections: The economic recovery hasn’t reached everyone, but progress is being made. Starting his two-day, three-state Midwestern trip, Obama focused on his economic and clean energy programs as job creators, even as he acknowledged the pain and skepticism of hard-hit areas. He’s not on the ballot this year, but his party’s control of Congress is at stake, along with dozens of governors’ seats and state legislatures. Despite encouraging news about an expanding economy and markets, the president told an Iowa crowd, “times are still tough

relief well is operating. That’s 4.2 million gallons. The worst oil spill in U.S. history was when the Exxon Valdez spilled 11 million gallons in Alaska’s Prince William Sound in 1989. BP said it will drill the relief well even if it is able to shut off the flow of oil. Improving weather jump-started efforts Tuesday to contain the spill, which threatens to coat marine mammals and birds with oily slime and taint hundreds of miles of white-sand beaches and rich seafood grounds. Louisiana-based BP spokesman Neil Chapman said 49 vessels — oil skimmers, tugboats, barges and special recovery boats that separate oil from water — are working to round up oil as the spill area continues to expand. As of Tuesday morning, oil that leaked from the rig site was spread over an area about 48 miles long and 80 miles wide at its widest. The borders of the spill were uneven, making it difficult to calculate how many square miles are covered. Though oil was not ex-

pected to reach the coast until late in the week, if at all, concern was growing about what will happen if it does. In Gulfport, Miss., where white sand beaches are a tourist playground and dolphins, whales and even manatees are frequent visitors to Mississippi Sound, residents were concerned. Louis Skrmetta, 54, operates the Ship Island Excursions company his grandfather started in 1926. He takes tourists to the barrier islands about 10 miles south of Gulfport in the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Its powder-white beaches and clear green water create an idyllic setting for sunning and observing marine birds and sea life.

Invites you to,

Obama: “There’s a silent crisis occurring in rural America that’s been ongoing for several decades.” He said the president is delivering a new framework for the “revival of the rural economy.” Obama also plans to stop in Illinois and Missouri before returning to the White House late Wednesday. Iowa and Missouri are sharply contested in virtually every election, and Republicans this year think they can snag the Illinois Senate seat that Obama held before becoming president. Obama spoke after touring a plant that makes blades for wind turbines.

I cannot begin to tell you how high and low my life has been in the last two years. Cancer is like getting a ticket for a ride to someplace you don’t want to go. It is scary mentally at first, then emotionally, then physically, then every way one can imagine, and then way past that. It gives new meaning to being low. But, from there, from the bottom of the world, along comes hope and charity and love. The benefit, the party for me last Saturday at Boone Trail School gave me hope in ways I cannot describe. It gave me charity in money and in so many ways, and it gave me love from so many people. I want to thank all the business people who gave from their work to help me, many of whom did not even know me. What an act of kindness and generosity. I want to thank the people who cooked, the people who sold tickets, the people who played in the bands, the people who volunteered, and all the people who came out and supported me. This is the good side of my life right now. I admit I struggle with the cancer, but like anything difficult and scary, it is easier with people around you, helping you, talking to you, sharing their time, and love, and resources with you. I cannot begin to tell you how high and how low my life has been the last two years, but I can tell you last Saturday night was a big high for me, and I thank everyone so much for thinking of me. First hope, then charity, and always love, and love is the best of these.

Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tougher immigration law draws ire, possible referendum

PHOENIX (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Politicians weighed in on Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough new immigration law Tuesday, while Mexico cautioned its citizens about an â&#x20AC;&#x153;adverse political atmosphereâ&#x20AC;? in the state and a Phoenix man said he was aiming to get a referendum to repeal the measure on Novemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ballot. In California, Meg Whitman, the Republican front-runner in the California gubernatorial primary, said that Arizona is taking the wrong approach to with its tough new law.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just better ways to solve this problem,â&#x20AC;? Whitman said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. But Sen. John McCain told CBSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Early Showâ&#x20AC;? that his state needed such a law because the Obama administration has failed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;secure our borders.â&#x20AC;? The Arizona Republican called the situation in his state â&#x20AC;&#x153;the worst Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen,â&#x20AC;? and that ineffective border enforcement has resulted in drugs pouring into the southwestern United States from Mexico.

In Mexico, the Foreign Relations Department urged Mexicans in Arizona to â&#x20AC;&#x153;act with prudence and respect the framework of local lawsâ&#x20AC;? and said that the lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passage shows â&#x20AC;&#x153;an adverse political atmosphere for migrant communities and for all Mexican visitors.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, Jon Garrido, who produces a Hispanic website and ran unsuccessfully last year for Phoenix City Council, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been flooded with inquiries and that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s optimistic about putting a referendum to repeal the law on Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s November ballot. Qualifying a referendum requires submission of at least 76,682 voter signatures within 90 days after the current legislative session. Opposition to the law has grown since it was signed Friday by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer, with civil rights leaders and others demanded a boycott of the state. Brewer has said Arizona must act because Washington has failed to stop the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs from Mexico. The state is the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busiest gateway for people slipping into the country. The measure â&#x20AC;&#x201D; set to take effect in late July or early August â&#x20AC;&#x201D; would make it a crime under state law to be in the U.S. illegally. It directs state and local police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect

they are illegal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look or sound foreign, you are going to be subjected to neverending requests for police to confirm your identity and to confirm your citizenship,â&#x20AC;? said Alessandra Soler Meetze, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona. Currently, many U.S. police departments do not ask about peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immigration status unless they have run afoul of the law in some other way. Many departments say stopping and questioning people will only discourage immigrants from cooperating to solve crimes. Under the new Arizona law, immigrants unable to produce documents showing they are allowed to be in the U.S. could be arrested, jailed for up to six months and fined $2,500. That is a significant escalation of the typical federal punishment for being here illegally â&#x20AC;&#x201D; deportation. People arrested by Arizona police would be turned over to federal immigration officers. Opponents said the federal government could thwart the law by refusing to accept them. Supporters of the law said it is necessary to protect Arizonans. The state is home to an estimated 460,000 illegal immigrants. Brewer has ordered state officials to develop a training course for officers to learn what constitutes reasonable suspicion that someone is in the U.S. illegally.

Man claims explosives, flight diverted in Maine AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An American citizen on a flight from Paris to Atlanta claimed to have a fake passport and said he had explosives in his luggage, forcing federal air marshals to intervene and the plane to land in Maine, U.S. officials said Tuesday. The officials, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing, believe the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passport was authentic. There were 235 passengers and eight crew aboard Delta Air Lines Flight 273, which landed safely just after at 3:30 p.m. at Bangor International Airport, Delta spokeswoman Susan Elliott said. Federal officials met the aircraft at the airport. The Transportation Security Administration said the passenger was being interviewed by law enforcement. After the man was apprehended, flight attendants moved passengers forward to clear out space in the rear of the plane, a passenger told CNN.

Ford turns another profit but worries hurt shares DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ford Motor Co. earned $2.1 billion in the first quarter as the economic clouds parted and consumers grew confident enough to buy cars again. But the confidence didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t extend to investors, who pushed Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shares down Tuesday on concerns that the automakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recovery isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sustainable. The profit of 50 cents per share was Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth straight positive quarter and its highest quarterly profit in six years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an about-face from the same period last year,

when Ford lost $1.4 billion, or 60 cents per share, at the height of the recession. Ford said it expects to be solidly profitable this year, a year earlier than its previous guidance. But investors worried that the company canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t maintain its strong gains in the second half of the year. Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first-quarter U.S. market share made its biggest jump in 33 years, for example, and is unlikely to keep growing at that pace. Ford also faces higher prices for steel and other raw materials, rising interest rates and expected weaker European demand. Ford shares fell $1, or nearly 7 percent, to $13.46 in late afternoon trading.

Malcolm X assassin Hagan is freed on parole in NYC NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The only man to admit shooting Malcolm X was freed on parole Tuesday, 45 years after he assassinated the civil rights leader. Thomas Hagan, the last man still serving time in the 1965 killing, was freed from a Manhattan prison where he spent two days a week under a work-release program, state Department of Correctional Services spokeswoman Linda Foglia said. Hagan, 69, has said he was one of three gunmen who shot Malcolm X as he began a speech at Harlemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Audubon Ballroom on Feb. 21, 1965. But Hagan has said the two men convicted with him were not involved. They maintained their innocence and were paroled in the 1980s. No one else has ever been charged. The assassins gunned down Malcolm X out of anger at his split with the leadership of the Nation of Islam, the black Muslim movement for which he had once served as chief spokesman, said Hagan, who was then known as Talmadge X Hayer.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Peanutsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sold to Joe Boxer for $175M

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a new owner, Charlie Brown. Newspaper publisher E.W. Scripps Co. is selling licensing rights for Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peanutsâ&#x20AC;? gang to Iconix Brand Group Inc., the licensing company that owns Joe Boxer and London Fog. The family of the late â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peanutsâ&#x20AC;? creator Charles Schulz will also own part of the business too, giving it more control of and money from the comic stripâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy. Heirs say the deal announced Tuesday for for the 60-year-old comic strip is what the artist would have wanted. Schulz worked for decades to win back the rights to his work, which many other artists like himself sold to appear in print. Scripps will sell its licensing unit, which also represents characters such as Dilbert and Raggedy Ann and Andy, to Iconix for $175 million. The bulk of revenue generated by United Media Licensing comes from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peanutsâ&#x20AC;? franchise. Iconix will form a partnership with Schulzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; family, who will receive 20 percent ownership in the unit that owns â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peanutsâ&#x20AC;? and pay that percentage of the sale price. Craig Schulz, one of the late artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; five children,

E.W. Scripps Co. said Tuesday that it will sell the unit that owns the licensing rights to Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peanutsâ&#x20AC;? gang for $175 million to Joe Boxer owner Iconix Brand Group Inc. said the family is relieved to win an ownership interest. At the time of his death in 2000, Schulz had approval over all business deals and the use of art, which his family maintains. But now, they can craft their own proposals and shape the legacy of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peanuts,â&#x20AC;? said Barbara Gallagher, a lawyer for the Schulz family. The family could potentially earn more money as well, and already earns a â&#x20AC;&#x153;significant revenue streamâ&#x20AC;? each year from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peanuts.â&#x20AC;? Scripps first brought the strip to market in 1950 and owned the rights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were simply like an actor in a play,â&#x20AC;? Schulz said of cartoonists from the era. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You did your part and everything else you had to give up totally, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

the way the world was.â&#x20AC;? His father fought for years to get the rights back, even threatening to quit until he was given more business and artistic control, said the younger Schulz from Santa Rosa, Calif., where the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business is run. By the time Schulz retired in 1999, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peanutsâ&#x20AC;? was in more than 2,600 papers around the world and its cast of characters appeared everywhere, from T-shirts to greeting cards and snocone machines. No new comics have been drawn for a decade, according to Schulzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wishes, but the licensing business is alive and well. Some 20,000 new products are approved each year in more than 40 countries. The business has more than 1,200 licensing agree-

ments and relationships with companies and retailers such as Warner Bros., Old Navy, CVS, MetLife Inc. and Hallmark Co. The unitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licensed merchandise has annual sales of more than $2 billion, but the owners of the licenses receive a fraction of that. In 2009, revenue of the unit fell 10 percent to nearly $92 million. That figure includes United Mediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s syndication operations, which Scripps will still own, meaning it will still syndicate comic strips and editorial features. Scripps said the cash deal will close by the end of the second quarter. Iconix said it expects â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peanutsâ&#x20AC;? to generate about $75 million in annual royalty revenue and noted an existing revenue split with the Schulz family will remain, separate from the new 20 percent arrangement. Iconix, based in New York, owns and licenses brands such Candieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Starter, Mudd and many others, to retailers, wholesalers and suppliers. Iconix CEO Neil Cole said the purchase moves the company away from being focused solely on fashion into new realms that include theme parks, media and financial institutions. The family also hopes to pair up the franchise with Iconixâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fashion brands.

Marilyn Monroe writings to be released this fall NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Musings about life, literature and other rarely seen writings by Marilyn Monroe will be published this fall. Farrar, Straus & Giroux announced Tuesday that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fragmentsâ&#x20AC;? would come out in October. Editor Courtney Hodell Monroe said the book would include poems, photographs, reflections on third husband Arthur Miller and other men in Monroeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, and references to works by Samuel Beckett, James Joyce and numerous other authors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the book will show that she was a really thoughtful person with a real interior life,â&#x20AC;? Hodell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was a great reader and someone with real writing flair. There are fragments of poetry that are really quite beautiful, lines that stop you in your tracks.â&#x20AC;? The book features a long essay about Monroeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first husband, James Dougherty; notes about acting and the roles she was working on; lists of resolutions and a letter to acting coach Lee Strasberg. Monroe wrote on everything from spiral bound notebooks to stationery from the Waldorf Astoria. The writings date from 1943, when Monroe was a teenager, to near the end of her life. Monroe was found

NBC to feature Prince Charlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; environmentalism NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prince Charles will be featured on NBC later this year in a film about his environmental work. The network said Tuesday it will show â&#x20AC;&#x153;Harmony,â&#x20AC;? a movie about the prince and his view that people have lost the understanding of how to live in harmony with the natural world. It features business and environmental leaders working for a better balance. Paul Telegdy, head of alternative programming at NBC, said Prince Charles was mocked as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;treehugging princeâ&#x20AC;? when he first started talking about many of these issues. Telegdy knows â&#x20AC;&#x201D; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Brit who worked for the BBC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always thought of him as one of the leading environmental activists on the planet,â&#x20AC;? he said. The film also includes clips from an interview Prince Charles did about the environment in 1988 with future Nobel Prize winner Al Gore. The special will air in November, part of NBC Universalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth annual week of programming promoting green lifestyles.

Police: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Seinfeldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; actor Alexander hits biker LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Los Angeles police say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seinfeldâ&#x20AC;? actor Jason Alexander struck a 14-year-old bicyclist while driving, but the boy wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seriously injured. Police spokeswoman Norma Eisenman says Alexander hit the biker Tuesday Alexander along Wilshire Boulevard in the Mid-City area. Eisenman says Alexander stopped and waited for police and wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cited. She says the boy suffered minor injuries and was in stable condition when he was taken to a hospital for examination. Alexanderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s publicist Ron Hoffman says the actor acknowledged responsibility and acted properly by waiting for police and paramedics to arrive. He says Alexander is grateful that the boy wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seriously hurt. Alexander played neurotic friend George Costanza on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seinfeld.â&#x20AC;?

Four senators said Tuesday that Facebook needs to make it easier for its 400 million users to protect their privacy as the site opens more avenues for them to share their interests and other personal information.

Commission already had been examining the privacy and data collection practices of Facebook and other social networks, the agency confirmed Tuesday.

through new tools called â&#x20AC;&#x153;social plug-ins.â&#x20AC;? These enable Facebookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s users to share their interests in such products as clothes, movies and music on other Web sites. For instance, you might hit a button on indicating you like a certain style of jeans, and then recommend a movie on another site. That information about the jeans and the movie might be passed along to other people in your Facebook network, depending on your privacy settings. Facebook says all this will help personalize the Web for people. It stresses that no personal information is being given to the dozens of websites using the new plug-ins. Still, it means that information that hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been previously communicated could get broadcast to your friends and family on Facebook. And Facebook is indeed sharing some personal information with three websites that Facebook hopes will demonstrate how online services can be more helpful when they know more about their users.

China wants telecom companies to inform on clients

EU moves to help aviation heal $3.3 billion losses

BEIJING (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; China is poised to strengthen a law to require telecommunications and Internet companies to inform on customers who discuss state secrets, potentially forcing businesses to collaborate with the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vast security apparatus that stifles political dissent. The move, reported Tuesday by state media, comes as China continues tightening controls on communications services. It also follows a spat over censorship that prompted search giant Google Inc. last month to move its Chinese site to Hong Kong, which provides broader protection of civil liberties than mainland China. A draft of amendments to the Law on Guarding State Secrets submitted to Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top legislature for review will make more explicit the requirement that telecoms operators and Internet service providers help police and state security departments in investigations about leaks of state secrets, the state-run China Daily newspaper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Information transmissions should be immediately stopped if they are found to contain state secrets,â&#x20AC;? the official Xinhua News Agency cited the amendment as saying. Xinhua said that according to the amendment, once a state secret leak has been discovered, records should be kept and the finding reported to authorities.

BRUSSELS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Europe should help its aviation industry recover from up to euro2.5 billion ($3.3 billion) in losses from the volcanic ash crisis by reforming its air traffic control system, offering loans and suspending some rules like bans on nighttime flights, the European Union said Tuesday. The continentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s air traffic control agency also assembled experts to determine whether national air authorities reacted appropriately to the ash threat, which airlines insist did not warrant a lengthy closure of large chunks of airspace. The experts will carry out a comprehensive review of the actual threat to aviation posed by the ash cloud and how effective closing an airspace really is. The closure of a large chunk of European airspace due to the April 14 volcanic eruption in southern Iceland caused the cancellation of more than 100,000 flights and left 10 million passengers stranded. EU Transport Commissioner Siim Kallas said the European Commission was asking its 27 member nations to give airlines immediate relief with measures such as marketrate loans and deferring payments for air traffic control services. Lifting restrictions on nighttime flights â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a measure that maintains quiet in neighborhoods around airports â&#x20AC;&#x201D; would help airlines repatriate stranded passengers and get delayed freight deliveries to their destinations, he said.

CRAWFORD WINS NBA’S 6TH MAN OF THE YEAR ATLANTA (AP) — Accepting a backup role for the first time in his career, Atlanta Hawks guard Jamal Crawford was rewarded for his unselfishness Tuesday by being named the NBA Sixth Man of the Year. Crawford won the award going away with 580 of a possible 610 points, including 110 out of 122 first-place votes. Jason Terry of the Dallas Mavericks finished second with 220 points and Anderson Varejao of the Cleveland Cavaliers (126 points) finished third. Crawford averaged 18 points a game in 31.1 minutes off the bench in his first season with Atlanta. He shot 44.9 percent from the field to help the Hawks win 53 games.

UECKER TO UNDERGO HEART SURGERY MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee Brewers radio announcer Bob Uecker is scheduled to undergo heart surgery on Friday and is expected to need two to three months to recover. Uecker, a Hall of Fame announcer, won a World Series ring with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1964 and played in Philadelphia and Atlanta before retiring in 1967. He starred in commercials and the television sitcom “Mr. Belvedere.” He is in his 40th season calling Brewers games.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox has an idea of how much St. Louis slugger Albert Pujols should get in his next contract: $50 million a year. Cox saw that Philadelphia star Ryan Howard got a five-year extension worth $125 million. So on Tuesday, before the Braves played at St. Louis, Cox offered his assessment. Cox says Pujols is twice as good as any player in the majors. Pujols is in the final year of a seven-year, $100 million contract with St. Louis. The Cardinals have a $16 million option on the three-time NL MVP for next season.

strive to be. A portion: The dates when the Jackets and Cavaliers get together are circled on every calendar now. The wins and losses can be debated for all time, but maybe more important than any single outcome is the interest generated by those meetings. They are not games anymore. They are events. Be seen. Be loud. Be proud.

CHARLOTTE — The Carolina Panthers traded starting strong safety Chris Harris to the Chicago Bears on Tuesday, continuing their offseason roster overhaul. The Panthers got reserve linebacker Jamar Williams in the deal, while Harris returns to Chicago less than three years after he was traded to Carolina. Harris was deemed expendable after he struggled some in 2009 and Carolina added depth at safety. “Chris is going back to an organization where he has familiarity and we wish him the very best,” Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said in a statement. “He has done everything we have asked and has been a valuable member of our team. Right now we have some young safeties who will get the opportunity to continue to earn playing time.” Harris joins starters Jake Delhomme, Brad Hoover, Muhsin Muhammad, Damione Lewis, Maake Kemoeatu and Na’il Diggs who have moved on because of Carolina’s youth movement. The Panthers also let Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers leave in free agency. The 25-year-old Williams has played in all 16 games in each of the past three seasons with the Bears, and had a career-high 43 tackles last season. But he hadn’t been able to win a starting job with Lance Briggs in front of him and was a restricted free agent. “Jamar is a versatile linebacker who brings experience, athletic ability and can help on special teams as well as compete for time at linebacker,” Hurney said. After missing the first three games with a knee injury and then getting off to a slow start, the hard-hitting Harris had 44 tackles and three interceptions last season. He had 80 tackles a year earlier, and led the NFL and set a franchise record with eight forced fumbles in his first season with Carolina

Resentment in the Hendrick camp?


issension? Confusion? Tension? Dueling egos? Turmoil? Jealousy? What do these adjectives have in common? They describe the feelings between what has become rival teammates in the Rick Hendrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camp. What is wrong with these two? Or should I say, why have they all of a sudden became enemies? NASCAR has been wanting a rivalry but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think they expected this one. I guess the first question we need to examine is whether there really is some dissension between these two I think so, and I think it has a lot to do with Jimmie Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success the last four years. After all, Jeff Gordon does own a part of JJâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car and he is responsible for Johnson being a part of the Hendrick crew. So, I think he has a hard time with Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success. Johnson has won four championships during a time Gordon has been trying to win his fifth, and although Gordon would never admit it, I believe it is becoming a distraction and somewhat of an aggravation. I know I would be wondering about where I had gone wrong! I think Gordon is somewhat bewildered and confused. He has had a lot of successful races during the same stretch that Johnson has been dominant. But unlike Johnson, he has not been able to seal the deal. I think it could be a case of pit stop calls or crew chief decisions, but for

whatever reason Gordon has not been able to get those needed wins. He still has the talent, but does he still have the drive and the focus that is required now? All of this has created the tension. The tension also comes from the fact that Johnson has aided in wrecks that have taken Gordon out of contention. Now I say aided because Johnson has not actually caused the wrecks, but at Talladega Johnson pulling over in front of Gordon caused the Rainbow Warrior to lose his momentum. And thus he was caught up in something that was not of his doing. It was funny after the race when Gordon said that the 48 car was angering him. In that whining little shrill voice, Gordon said that it takes a lot to anger him and that 48 car was getting close. So, I guess he was upset, but that is racing. Get over it! I can imagine Matt Kenseth sitting back and saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well Jeff, you are getting what you deserve.â&#x20AC;? All of these so-called problems are created by the fact that these two drivers have egos that have to be nurtured and handled with kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gloves.

Both want a lot of attention and there is only so much of it to go around. So it creates turmoil and some jealousy. Neither one will ever admit that he is jealous, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine them not being. Maybe not much, but it is there. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what Hendrick is going to do with all of these big-name drivers. When you add in Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Mark Martin and later Kasey Kahne, then one wonders what can he do to keep everyone happy. I have no idea, butt as an owner it is probably a nice problem to have. But I am so glad it is him and not me. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s change subjects and talk green-whitecheckered finishes. Now who did not enjoy the finish at Talladega? As a race fan it was awesome. I know the drivers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t particularly like the rule but Sunday it was proven that it works. I thought that between the action and the lead changes the finish was exactly why the rule was written and what the doctor ordered. Last year I never thought that I would say that again. I figured that after the fiasco at Talladega that we had seen the last of good side-by-side racing with a lot of action. Not so Sunday! I loved the fact that two cars could drive away and then in a matter of a lap or two the field would catch back up. Maybe it was the spoiler? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, but it was still action that I enjoyed. I can recall last year sitting at a restaurant and hating

every second of watching the fall race. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for those memories to go away! I actually sat here and watched every lap with excitement and joy. It was the first time in a while that I could say that. Now as for the greenwhite checkered. It works! I knew that they would never get through a race there without it. Jamie McMurray would have won had they been going by the old rules, but Kevin Harvick made it work in his favor. I loved the fact that it created a slingshot move by Harvick, and that kept me on the edge of my seat. Either Harvick was going to win it or there was going to be another wreck and someone in third or farther back was going to steal one. All in all, that is what racing should be about. Make it fun and exciting until the end. For once, make it good for the fans. After all, we are responsible for the drivers getting their winnings! Well, it is on to Richmond. Another Saturday night and another shootout? Probably not, but if the last few races there are any indication then yes, it could be! Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you just love it when I talk out of both sides of my mouth? See you next week! Gaines is a NASCAR columnist for The Herald.

Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future among questions for Bobcats

CHARLOTTE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Charlotte Bobcats center Theo Ratliff has played for Larry Brown on two teams spanning three decades in his 14-year NBA career. So maybe he knows what the nomadic Hall of Fame coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next move is. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With coach Brown you know how things go for him,â&#x20AC;? a smiling Ratliff said Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to make the best decision for him and his family and what they have to do.â&#x20AC;? Not long after Ratliff and the rest of the Bobcats took their exit physicals and scattered for the summer, Brown and owner Michael Jordan met at Time Warner Cable Arena. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t address reporters, a day after the Bobcatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first playoff appearance ended with the thud of a four-game sweep amid questions if Brown will return for a third season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not my decision,â&#x20AC;? forward Gerald Wallace said when asked about Brown. Brown, in his 13th pro or college coaching job, insisted after Orlandoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 99-90 victory Monday that clinched a 4-0 first-round victory that he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t coach for anyone other than Jordan. But the 69-year-old Brown also said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll talk with his wife and children, who live in Philadelphia, before announcing if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll return for the final two years of his contract. What makes the plot more intriguing is the 76ers have a vacant coaching job, and perhaps a front-office opening soon, too. Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest stint as a coach was a six-year stay in Philly when Ratliff played there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hypothetical,â&#x20AC;? Brown said when asked if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d leave Charlotte for a

job as a general manager or team president. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really, personally, not ready to step down in terms of my desire to keep coaching.â&#x20AC;? While Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future will be a hot topic, the Bobcats have several other personnel issues in their first offseason with Jordan as majority owner. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the beginning of a new era in several ways, since the 6-year-old franchiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous goal of just making the playoffs no longer applies after Charlotteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first, and brief, taste of the postseason produced uneven play and exposed offensive deficiencies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was two totally different teams,â&#x20AC;? Wallace said of facing the playoff-experienced Magic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was one team that was finally making the playoffs and I think was content with just making the playoffs. Then there was one team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been to the playoffs year after year. Their goal was to win a championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now our goal is now not to make the playoffs. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already established that our goal is to go deep in the playoffs.â&#x20AC;? The Bobcats will have difficulty making big moves this offseason because of the salary cap. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have about $59 million in committed payroll for next sea-

son if they give a qualifying offer to restricted free agent Tyrus Thomas, who had 21 points in Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include point guard Raymond Felton, who will become an unrestricted free agent this summer. Felton may have cost himself millions after being dominated by Orlandoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jameer Nelson in the playoffs. With only D.J. Augustin behind him, the Bobcats would need to either re-sign Felton or acquire another point guard. But Jordan has indicated he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get his payroll into luxury tax territory, which limits flexibility. Trades have been how Jordan has construct his team, with Novemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acquisition of Stephen Jackson the most important in Charlotteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 44-38 regular season. Jackson provided Charlotte with a needed go-to scorer and, despite his quirks, a veteran presence in the locker room with playoff experience. But Jackson struggled in the final two games against Orlando. He shot 6 of 18 and missed a go-ahead 3-point attempt in the final minute of Game 3. He was then 2 of 11 from the field on Monday. His woes magnified Charlotteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lack of scoring options. While Wallace

Felton has never been a good outside shooter, and power forward Boris Diaw is inconsistent.

SPORTS BRIEFS Rangers put Cruz on DL with hamstring problem

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Texas Rangers have placed right fielder Nelson Cruz on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. The Rangers made the move Tuesday, a day after Cruz aggravated the injury while racing home from third base on a wild pitch in the fifth inning of an 8-6 loss to Detroit. Cruz has been bothered by the sore hamstring for a week. He left games early three times last week, missed the start in another game and was relegated to DH duty once. He was replaced by David Murphy in the sixth inning Monday night. Cruz is hitting .328 and is second in the majors with seven home runs. He has 17 RBIs.

LeBron eyeing NBA ownership

CLEVELAND (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Own like Mike? Cavaliers star LeBron James could see himself following idol Michael Jordan into NBA ownership. James, whose path to superstardom has followed a similar trajectory as Jordanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, said Tuesday night before Cleveland faced Chicago in Game 5 of the playoffs that he would â&#x20AC;&#x153;loveâ&#x20AC;? to someday own an NBA team. Jordan assumed ownership of the Charlotte Bobcats in March, buying the club for $275 million from Bob Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would love to be in that position,â&#x20AC;? James said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great position to be able to own a team and be able to put pieces together and make decisions.â&#x20AC;? The 25-year-old James, who has made savvy business decisions since joining the league, said he understands the challenges of ownership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely a tough job,â&#x20AC;? said James, the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reigning MVP, who is almost certain to win again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I love the game and I know talent. If an opportunity presents itself later on in my life, then I will try.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I treat it like two different worlds anyway. When I go home thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one world and when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m back here now.â&#x20AC;?

Rockies demote Iannetta; DL for De La Rosa, Hammel DENVER (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Colorado Rockies put starting pitchers Jorge De La Rosa and Jason Hammel on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday and sent struggling catcher Chris Iannetta to Triple-A Colorado Springs. De La Rosa, a left-hander, tore the flexor tendon band in the middle finger of his pitching hand on Sunday and Hammel strained his right groin Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A flexor tendon band was a new one to me,â&#x20AC;? manager Jim Tracy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re torn they become very uncomfortable. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve either torn it badly enough to where you need to surgically repair it, but we dodged that. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need some rest and it will be a period of time.â&#x20AC;? De La Rosa is 3-1 with a 3.90 ERA in four starts and Hammel is 0-2 with a 9.16 ERA.

Iowa State talking with Hoiberg about coaching job DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An Iowa State spokesman says the school is in negotiations with Fred Hoiberg about becoming its next menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball coach. Spokesman Steve Malchow said Tuesday that Iowa State officials were negotiating with Hoiberg, a native of Ames and one of the top players in Cyclones history. Hoiberg is now vice president of basketball operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Iowa State is looking to replace Greg McDermott, who was introduced Monday as Creightonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new coach.

An important 2 weeks for Tiger By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

CHARLOTTE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The mess Tiger Woods created for himself most likely will never leave him entirely. But the time is coming, and perhaps soon, when the focus shifts almost exclusively to his game, his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus and his place in history. That time is not this week at Quail Hollow. And it probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the following week in front of the party crowd at The Players Championship. The Masters was the safest place for Woods to return from golf after perhaps the swiftest and most spectacular downfall ever by a sporting icon. Augusta National is synonymous with good manners. People go to watch golf. But while it was his first public display of golf, no other tournament in the world (except for maybe the Tavistock Cup) is so private. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes Quail Hollow such a big

his press conference). And not when the tour limits the number of seats in the interview room and inside-the-ropes passes for each media outlet. That wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have happened a year ago. It might not happen a month from now. Woods tees off Thursday at 7:40 a.m. on the 10th tee with British Open champion Stewart Cink

Oswalt returns after helping tornado relief effort

HOUSTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Astros ace Roy Oswalt rejoined the team on Tuesday after spending several days with his parents in Mississippi helping them recover from tornado damage.

Mallard Cove Apartments FAR-REACHING POTENTIAL When teeth are crowded, rotated, or overlapping, they are very difďŹ cult to ďŹ&#x201A;oss and brush properly. Wherever ďŹ&#x201A;oss and toothbrush bristles fail to remove trapped food particles, bacteria thrive, and the risk of tooth decay and gum disease rises substantially. These problems extend further than the conďŹ nes of the mouth. Advanced gum disease (periodontitis) has been implicated as a contributing factor to cardiovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, the risk of stroke, and poor control of diabetes. In some populations, periodontitis has also been linked with pre-term childbirth and low birth-weight babies. With all these potentially far-reaching risks in mind, it is best to get needed orthodontic treatment that will help ensure good oral health. In addition to its many health beneďŹ ts, orthodontic treatment produces beneďŹ ts such as increased self-esteem, social and career success, and a better outlook on life. At SANDHILLS ORTHODONTICS, we utilize the latest technological advances in the industry, such as invisible ceramic braces and InvisalignÂŽ, to ensure that our patients receive the most effective care possible. We invite you to contact us today at (919) 718-9188 to make an appointment for a free consultation.

Vikings draft for future â&#x20AC;&#x201D; except at QB

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Minnesota Vikings had eight draft picks this year, and the quarterback they took in the sixth round will be moved to wide receiver. So, however this season unfolds, with Brett Favre in

charge or without him, the Vikings have set themselves up for more uncertainty at the sportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most important position. Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels are still around, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still unproven options. Favre

sure proved his worth last season, but if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one matter heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never sure about itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his status. At some point, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to retire. For now, though, the Vikings wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let on if they are worried about finding a permanent solution.

Head coach Brad Childress even joked at his news conference after the draft on Saturday night that he saw the car commercial in which Favre accepts a 2020 NFL MVP award trophy and figured the situation would be fine.


Phyllis Verrilliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory to the fight against cancer. Donations of all kinds will be accepted, while a 50/50 raffle will be run (A note to the prospective winner: think long and hard about donating those winnings back to the benefit. Got it? OK.) with sales of T-shirts and hoodies going to the fight as well.

a better way to use the meeting of two rivals. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something the schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; two softball teams have been using to great success for the last few years as well. On Saturday, when Lee County travels to play Southern Lee for the JV and varsity games beginning at noon, the teams will be raising money again for the Priscilla Edwards Scholarship in memory of the late Yellow

Jackets player. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just another example of the good that can come from sports. But to see it come from our biggest rivals should make us all fans of each other.

in 2007. Harris turned out to be a bargain for the Panthers. They sent a fifth-round pick to the Bears in training camp to get him after numerous injuries and Mike Minterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement left them with almost no depth at safety. Harris immediately became a starter and was second on the team with 102 tackles in 2007. But after three seasons and being one of the leaders in the locker room, he was sent as Carolina sheds veterans and payroll after

going 8-8 last season. Besides young safeties Charles Godfrey and Sherrod Martin, the Panthers selected Jordan Pugh of Texas A&M in the sixth round of last weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft. Carolina also recently signed Aaron Francisco, who is mostly a special teams player but has played safety. The 27-year-old Harris, who played at LouisianaMonroe, was Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth-round pick in 2005. He had three interceptions as a rookie, and intercepted Indianapolisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl a year later.

8B / Wednesday, April 28, 2010 / The Sanford Herald DEAR ABBY


Wife holds her tongue while man gives a lashing with his DEAR ABBY: Would you please print the signs of a mental abuser? My husband is like night and day. There’s no in-between. He curses at me, calls me names, tells me I’m stupid and, when he raises his hand palm outward, it’s my sign to shut up. I have to leave notes about where I am, what time I’ll be home, and if I’m a minute late, I’m in for it big time. When I try to stand up for myself he tells me I’m a b---- or “too sensitive.” He also tells me what to wear. Why on earth would I still love this guy? Please print the signs because I know a lot of other women in this situation. — BEATEN DOWN IN FLORIDA

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Concentrate on the present and forget the past and you will be able to look forward to the future. The outcome is in your hands -- simply stay calm and do what needs to be done. Taking care of both personal and professional business will lead to your victory. As long as you know what your goals are, you will have no trouble attaining them. Your numbers are 2, 8, 14, 24, 29, 35, 41 ARIES (March 21-April 19): You will expect everyone to show you what they are doing, not tell you about it. Your curiosity, coupled with your high energy and huge imagination, will lead to some new ideas and a successful partnership. 3 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Act with confidence and you will get everything you are asking for. Avoid any inconsistency or annoyance. Taking on a responsibility that belongs to a colleague will show how valuable you are and advancement will follow. 3 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Start thinking about the future and how to ensure better health, wealth and emotional stability. Start a new diet or set up an exercise routine. Make a commitment to improvement and to look at career options that will suit you better. 3 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): You have options but if you don’t take advantage of them, you will end up spinning your wheels and wondering “what if.” Take the plunge and you will make discoveries about who you are and what you can do. Love is in the stars. 5 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t let things get to you today. Chill out and focus on helping others or taking time out for a little pampering. You need to get centered and rethink your strategy so that you can make the right choices. 2 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.


22): Speak your mind and don’t worry about anyone’s disagreeing with you. Eventually, everyone will get on the same page. You can settle an overdue debt and make some changes to a partnership and your financial structure, putting your mind at ease. 4 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Protect your interests. Call in favors and give incentives to those willing to help you out. You will feel at ease once you start moving in a direction more in line with your personality. 3 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The potential to do something spectacular is present and, with a little ingenuity and a gentle nudge, you will make headway. Keep company with people just as talented, creative and motivated as yourself. 3 stars SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): It’s best to be reclusive or at least tightlipped. Giving out secret information will lead to a problem with someone you didn’t mean to upset. A change to your living arrangement will take you by surprise. 3 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Renovations or buying or selling property will be successful and will position you well financially. An emotional issue will be resolved quickly if you’re willing to meet halfway. 4 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Rethink what you are trying to accomplish. If your motives are not right, you may have to start over. Someone will call your bluff or accuse you of not being true to your word. Communication will be important but honesty even more critical. 2 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There is money to be made, a deal to negotiate, a settlement to resolve -all of which can bring greater cash flow and opportunities for a new project. It’s out with the old and in with the new, coupled with decisions to help you get a handle on improvements you want to make in the future. 5 stars

DEAR BEATEN DOWN: By printing your letter I HAVE printed the signs of a mental/emotional abuser. Your husband’s behavior is classic, and I don’t know why you would still love him. Women stay with men like your husband because they don’t think they deserve better, or because they are financially dependent. “Love” has nothing to do with it. Because verbal and emotional abuse can escalate into physical abuse, I’m printing the toll-free number of the National Domestic Violence Hotline. It’s (800) 7997233. o

— HIS RELATIVE DEAR RELATIVE: If he asks why he wasn’t invited, by all means tell him. If years of counseling haven’t curbed his compulsion to steal, it’s possible that one day he will learn in a jail cell what he didn’t learn on the couch. Meanwhile, I see no compelling reason to continue inviting him to family gatherings. Not only will you be doing your guests a favor, you’ll be exposing your relative to less temptation.

Abigail Van Buren Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

DEAR ABBY: How do you deal with a thief in your midst? I have a 21-year-old relative who steals. He has stolen from me, and I suspect from other members of the family as well. Please don’t suggest therapy -- he’s had years of therapy. Recently, he was caught stealing from a purse belonging to his mother’s best friend. The problem is family gatherings. I’m not comfortable telling my guests that they must watch their valuables, but I cannot deal with the possibility of having a guest’s possessions or money stolen. Also, I don’t particularly relish the idea of having him loose in my house. He hasn’t shown any particular interest in attending these functions and often hasn’t attended when invited, but it’s hard to know whether excluding him might make him feel left out. My inclination is to tell him the reason I don’t want to invite him. Should I?

o DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend has two children from a previous relationship. I love them very much and treat them like my own. We often go out with the children to playgrounds, shopping, etc. Abby, people often refer to me as the children’s mother. They’ll say, “Ask your mom ...” things like that. What’s the proper response to this? I find it embarrassing because I’m not their mother. But I don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable by saying I’m not. What would be the most polite response to someone in that situation? — NOT MOMMY IN MAINE DEAR NOT MOMMY: The most polite response would be to ignore their mistake.



7,000 fake Rolex watches are steamrolled in Philly

Police: Vomiting dog causes man to crash into pole

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A steamroller has crushed about 7,000 fake Rolex watches in Philadelphia under the orders of federal authorities seeking to deter would-be counterfeiters. Customs officials staged the destruction Monday to highlight law enforcement’s role in protecting intellectual property rights. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say the watches were seized from Binh Cam Tran, who pleaded guilty last year to charges including trafficking in counterfeit goods. Tran is serving six years in federal prison. He has been ordered to pay more than $2.2 million to the Rolex Co. Officials seized about 24,000 counterfeit watches and enough parts to create 1 million more.

WINONA, Minn. (AP) — A man has a pretty good excuse for why he crashed his car into a utility pole in Winona: his dog puked on him. The Winona Daily News reported police found the car unattended last Thursday morning against an Xcel Energy pole. Witnesses told officers they saw a man leaving the area and walking a beagle. The 18-year-old, who does not have insurance or a Minnesota driver’s license, called police about four hours later to confess. The man told police he was driving when his dog started “throwing up all over him.” Deputy Police Chief Tom Williams said the story checked out - police found vomit in the car.

Montana teen fined for trying to scare 7-year-old STEVENSVILLE, Mont. (AP) — An 18year-old in Montana apparently thought it would be funny to yell “I’m going to kidnap you” at a 7-year-old girl, but the joke cost him a $185 fine for disorderly conduct. The girl told police April 15 that she heard the man yell the threat from a car as she walked on a sidewalk in Stevensville. She helped police in the small town south of Missoula create a sketch, and police Chief James Marble says Justin Stockdale turned himself in Monday after seeing his likeness on flyers distributed around town.


6-pound foal born in NH may be world’s tiniest BARNSTEAD, N.H. (AP) — A diminutive horse born in New Hampshire could lay claim to the world record for lightweight foal. The pinto stallion named Einstein weighed just 6 pounds and measured 14 inches tall when he was born Friday in Barnstead, N.H. Those proportions fit a human baby just about right but are downright tiny for horse, even a miniature breed like Einstein. Dr. Rachel Wagner, Einstein’s co-owner, says the Guinness Book of Records lists the smallest newborn horse as weighing in at 9 pounds. Breeders say that unlike the current record holder, Thumbelina, Einstein shows no signs of dwarfism. He’s just a tiny horse.

God still speaks to us Q: In Biblical times, did God speak to people in a voice they could hear? If so, why doesn’t He do it today? I’d have a much stronger faith if I only heard His voice speaking to me once in a while. — P.McL. A: Yes, on occasion God did speak audibly to some of His servants in the Bible — but only rarely. More often, God gave them an inner conviction of His truth, or made His will clear to them through circumstances. Most often, He made His will clear through the written messages He had given in the past — in other words, through the Bible. Why doesn’t God speak to us today in a voice we can hear? One reason is because we wouldn’t have any way of knowing whether or not it was God who was speaking to us, or if it was a fraud (or even a demon). This, incidentally, is one reason why we shouldn’t listen to someone who claims to be a messenger from God, but rejects the Bible or contradicts its message. Jesus warned, “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come... and will deceive many” (Matthew 24:4-5). But the other reason God doesn’t speak to us in a voice we can hear is because He doesn’t need to! God has already told us everything we need to know — and we find it in the pages of the Bible. Most of all, we know He loves us because He came to earth in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ, who died for us. Don’t be filled with doubt any longer. Instead, turn to Jesus Christ and give your life to Him. Then come to know Him more and more by reading His Word and joining in fellowship with other believers.

Accessorize your dinner for a change


t’s happened to all of us women. Those horrible days that start out with not being able to find a thing to wear. Sure, your closet may be full of nice things. But, for one reason or another nothing is working. After trying on every possible combination of outfits you can put together, you settle for something that doesn’t quite satisfy you… until you walk past the counter in the bathroom that holds a perfect pair of earrings — a pair that completely makes the blah outfit INSIDE that you See our weren’t weekly Dining so excited Guide for about into local menu something options that actuPages 4-5C ally looks pretty cute. By the time you leave for work, it looks as if a tornado has hit your bedroom, but you are dressed and accessorized and ready for the day. Likewise, we’ve all had the days where we look into a full fridge and pantry and complain that there is nothing to eat. I feel so guilty when I do that, knowing that there are plenty of people out there who would think that they had just won the lottery if they looked in my fridge or pantry. I’ve always got more than enough food, but it isn’t always what my spoiled self is looking for. On those days, I have come to learn from my wardrobe experiences. Just as a perfect pair of earrings can turn a blah outfit into a new favorite, accessorizing your food can have the same effect. Each time I see my mother she forces me to prepare two things for her — tuna sandwiches and scrambled eggs. Both are foods that at times have been a total turnoff to me. But, with a few “accessories”, they turn from blah into bam! — just what I was looking for. Dried minced onion and dill weed are two

With the right balance of fat to be full of flavor while staying healthy, this leg of lamb with cherry and port wine sauce recipe is an elegant dish that can be made in under an hour.


A beautiful roast can turn a typical meal into a feast. But can it be part of a healthy diet? The answer is yes, when eaten in moderation and when you know how to shop for and prepare the right meat. No matter how you slice it, most meat is high in fat (especially the saturated kind). And as a rule of thumb, the more flavorful the cut, the higher the fat. Most markets post a chart with the nutrition facts for different cuts of meat, so start there. Also, rather than buying

Belmont drive-in theater remains a family affair By JOE DEPRIEST AP Member Exchange

BELMONT (AP) — As Melinda Pentecost popped corn and cooked chilli at the Belmont Drive-In Theater concession stand, memories flickered like images on the big screen. Summer nights when folks lie out under the stars slapping insects they called “gollywhoppers”; kids tossing footballs and Frisbees; neighbors visiting before the show. Pentecost, 40, remembered it all while getting ready, in a few hours, to open the theater for a new season. A landmark since 1946, Belmont Drive-In would be ready at 7 p.m. when fans from around the region rolled in. But it was hard for Pentecost to stay focused; this was the first time she’d worked here without her mother. Pentecost had grown up in the business her parents, Bill and Peggy Lawing, had run for nearly 30 years. When her father died in 1997, her mother

kept things going, even while taking cancer treatments. Peggy Lawing suffered a stroke, fell and died in January. Lawing’s three children had families and other jobs. But there was never any question the theater would come alive again. “This drive-in was what Mom and Dad were all about,” said Pentecost. “Being here makes me feel closer to them. It’s bittersweet, but I think my parents would love what we’re doing - and be proud.” A dozen or so family and friends showed up to help, including Pentecost’s husband, Roger, their children Lane, 15, Casey, 10, and Pentecost’s brothers, Wayne and David. They cooked and cleaned, checked lights and equipment, feeling a return of that old magic - the promise of another showtime just ahead.

Wouk’s thoughts on God, atheism meander but charm By DINESH RAMDE Associated Press Writer

“The Language God Talks: On Science and Religion” (Little, Brown and Co., 180 pages, $23.99), by Herman Wouk

Herman Wouk makes a compelling argument against the existence of God, although that may not have been his intent. In “The Language God Talks,” the Pulitzer Prize winner addresses the divide between science and religion. He considers arguments for and against the existence of God, but his defense of religion is roundabout and marginally persuasive while his defense of agnosticism or atheism is more stout. Wouk is the author of “The Winds of War” and “War and Remembrance.” Both tomes focus heavily on the Holocaust. Those events were so terrible, and Wouk’s emotional investment in his research so deep, that a nephew wondered aloud how Wouk could believe in a God who would allow the Holocaust to happen. This book is part of Wouk’s response. In it he recounts his lifelong efforts to reconcile his deep faith with the logic of science. The results are a pleasure to read. He digresses frequently, not quite rambling but occasionally lapsing into charming detours. Yet even when he’s off-topic, his writing is so elegant that readers will still enjoy being along for the ride. Wouk’s argument for agnosticism begins with a simple but detailed look at the history of astrophysics. He traces a sequence of discoveries, each of which finds that the universe is much larger than previously thought. Then he shares how the findings influenced the views of Richard Feynman, a feisty scientist who helped develop the atomic bomb. Most religions suggest that God created the world so he could watch humans struggle with good and evil and judge accordingly, Feynman says. But if that’s true, the Nobel laureate adds, God would have made a universe just big enough to carry out that single purpose. Instead we have an incomprehensibly huge

universe with more worlds than we could ever know. As Feynman notes: “The stage is too big for the drama.” The logic, as Wouk presents it, comes across as reasonable. Wouk includes other thoughtful arguments as well. For example, he points out that dinosaurs ruled the planet for a quarter-billion years. If God’s only aim in creating life was to judge the morality of humankind, why would he even bother creating that whole other world? As Wouk turns his attention to the side of religion, his writing becomes more enigmatic. He meanders into episodes of his life, recounted in rich detail, but their relevance to his overall argument is unclear. For example, he focuses heavily on how he came to write his other two books, in stories that have little to do with science or religion. He leaves the balance of his argument to an afterpiece. It’s an excerpt from “War and Remembrance” in which a protagonist gives an impassioned sermon to fellow Jews who know they’re destined for concentration camps. The sermon is Wouk’s writing at its best — chilling, eloquent, brilliant. But it’s also cryptic. The protagonist recounts the parable of Job, speaking with such passion that he leaves his listeners entranced. But it may be less clear to Wouk’s readers how the sermon proves the existence of God. While the book’s subtitle, “On Science and Religion,” suggests an academic discussion, the book is something else altogether. It seems to be a compilation of Wouk’s deeper thoughts in his 94-year lifetime, some touching on the main theme, some not. There’s still quite the charm in that. Wouk’s writing is so captivating, still as elegant as ever, that readers will likely appreciate his frequent detours even if they’re marginally relevant. “The Language God Talks” is a short, satisfying read. It may not add much to the science-versus-religion debate, but it demonstrates that Wouk hasn’t lost a whit of his storytelling genius.

MUSEUMS/GALLERIES n SANFORD: The Railroad House Museum is open from 1 to 4 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday. n SANFORD: The Artists’ Loft of the Lee County Arts Council features works by local artists at 102 S. Steele St. from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and 10 a.m to 5 p.m. Fridays. Paintings, writings, pottery, weaving and photography are featured.

Hugh William Wellons was killed in Vietnam in 1966, his family left a crate of his personal effects relatively undisturbed for over 40 years. The Army shipped his crate home after his death. Hugh’s sister, Caroline Parsons, agreed to let staff from the Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex examine the crated objects. She also began to offer more information about his life and how the family dealt with his loss. Wellons went to Vietnam in early 1966 as a first lieutenant serving as Assistant Battalion Advisor, 3rd Battalion, 4th Regiment, 2nd Infantry Division, Army of the Republic of Vietnam. On Oct. 13, 1966, while on an operation in Quang Ngai Province, Lt. Wellons’ unit came under fire, and he was killed. Because of his actions during that engagement, Lt. Wellons was posthumously awarded the Silver Star, in addition to the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. Hugh’s Crate offers a look at how we remember those who die while serving their country. The crate itself serves as a time capsule of personal possessions of a soldier in Vietnam in October 1966. The exhibit also features items from family, friends and fellow soldiers. There is a poem written by his sister and letters from soldiers thanking the family for a memorial fund to assist with a chapel in Vietnam that Hugh had helped establish. Also included is the framed commendation that accompanied the award of Lt. Wellons’ Silver Star. The display reminds us of the sacrifices made by soldiers and their families. As part of “31 Days of Glory,” the museum is exhibiting Hugh’s Crate for a second year. “31 Days of Glory” is a month of events in Fayetteville honoring those who serve and have served in our armed forces.

Creating a bird watching backyard

DEAR SAVVY SENIOR: Since retiring last year Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really gotten into bird-watching, but would like to attract more birds to my backyard. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the easiest way to do this, and what resources can you recommend for learning more about bird watching. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; BIRD-WATCHING BARNEY

Dear Barney: Backyard bird watching, or birding as many call it, is a great hobby shared by millions of retirees. To help you create a backyard thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s literally for the birds, you need three basic ingredients: food, water and shelter. Here are some tips to help you get started.

Do some homework

Your first step in creating a bird-friendly backyard is to become familiar with the bird species that reside or migrate through your area, and determine which kinds of these birds you want to attract to your yard. A great source that can help is the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology ( that offers a


attract. Natural sources of food are also very appealing, so depending on the climate you live in, consider planting some berry-producing scrubs and vines, fruit-bearing trees and seed-producing plants such as sunflower and purple coneflowers.

Jim Miller Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit

free online â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bird Guideâ&#x20AC;? and a comprehensive section on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Attracting Birds.â&#x20AC;? After youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a little homework, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to start with the basics.

Provide food Birds, like humans, appreciate a good meal. But birdsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; diets are diverse. Some gobble up seeds, nuts, berries, buds or insects, while others prefer fruit, nectar or sugar water. To attract a wide variety of birds, get several types of bird feeders for your yard and offer a variety of foods. The type of feeders and food obviously needs to match the types of birds you want to

Shelter too Cover is as important to birds as food. They feel more secure if they have shelter to protect themselves from the wind, cold and their enemies. The best kinds of cover are trees and large shrubs that give them a place to hide as well as raise and protect their young. Or you can buy a bird house or two specifically designed for the birds you want to attract (a storebought birdhouse should include this information).

Add water Providing clean, fresh water will attract birds to your yard quicker than anything else you can do. They need it to drink, of course, but they are especially attracted to shallow water (oneto-two-inches deep) where they can bathe. A simple solution here is to purchase a birdbath, and keep it clean. Birds

are also attracted to the sound of running water so consider adding a mister, dripper or circulating pump to your birdbath, or purchase one that has a built-in fountain. And for the winter months in cold climates water heaters are available to keep the water from freezing so you can provide a constant water source year-round.

Savvy tips To learn more about birding and attracting birds to your yard, the National Audubon Society ( ) is a great resource that provides lotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of information on their Web site along with links to your local chapter. They also offer â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Audubon Society Guide to Attracting Birdsâ&#x20AC;? book for $25 that you can order through or through the Cornell University Press at 800-666-2211. Another good resource is the free online booklet called â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the Birdsâ&#x20AC;? (see written by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Also see the American Birding Association Web site (, another excellent resource for bird watchers.

Marinated lamb rib chops make for tender wrap By J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Editor

Keeping a grilled lamb dish tender and fast is all a matter of choosing the right cut. For this recipe, I wanted something I could marinate briefly, toss on the grill for a few minutes, then shove into a pita bread with some roasted peppers and crumbled feta. I ended up going with lamb rib chops, an incredibly tender cut most often prepared — and eaten — on the bone. But a quick slice with a paring knife turned the ribs into medallions just the right size for a wrap. For this sandwich, I kept everything simple, and very Greek.

pricey “prime” grades of meat, which have the highest percentage of fat (about 35 to 45 percent by weight), choose cuts labeled “choice,” which are 15 to 35 percent fat. Even better, go for “select,” with 7 and 10 percent fat. Markets aren’t required to use these labels, so when in doubt, ask the butcher. Also, choose cuts that are less marbled, since all that marbling is just fat that even the most skillful butcher couldn’t trim away. Speaking of trimming, before you cook your meat, you’ll want trim any visible fat. This takes a few extra minutes but will significantly reduce the amount of fat you end up eating. This roast leg of lamb with a cherry and Port wine pan sauce starts with a cut of meat (the butt end of the leg) that when well trimmed is lean, yet has just enough fat to give it superb flavor. It’s an elegant dish that can be on the table in about 40 minutes.

Gardening Lilies arriving in many new varieties By DEAN FOSDICK For The Associated Press

Dutch hybridizers are gilding the lily, upgrading the cut flower favorite that also brings such long-lasting beauty to gardens. New varieties with deeper tints, stronger stems and softer fragrances are entering the market, prompting retailers to frequently update their websites and catalogs. “Our customers seem very interested in new lily varieties and they are selling well,” says Becky Heath. She and her husband own and operate Brent and Becky’s Bulbs near Gloucester, Va. Breeders like lilies because the hybrids can be crossed and their progeny sold more quickly than other bulb flowers, like tulips, that may require a decade or better to develop. Gardeners like lilies because the bulbs are so easy to grow. “They bloom for a long time,” says Sally Ferguson, a spokeswoman for the Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Center. “As perennials, they’re troupers, providing years and years of pleasure. They’re colorful and often exquisitely fragrant. They have height (and) excel at blooming above other perennials. Shorter varieties

lowing 4-H Centers across North Carolina: Betsy-Jeff Penn located near Reidsville (where we will be attending), Camp Millstone near Ellerbe, The Eastern Center near Columbia, Sertoma near Danbury and Swannanoa near Black Mountain. All 4-H Centers are among the 25 percent of youth camps nationwide that have received American Camping Association (ACA) accreditation. Youth interested in exploring wildlife and other natural resources will enjoy attending the “Fur, Fish and Game Camp” the week of June 20-25 at Millstone 4-H Center near Ellerbe. This is the premier summer camp experience for youth interested in the out of doors, wildlife, hunting and fishing. Campers will have the opportunity to work with outstanding instructors from N.C. State University and the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission. Classes include canoeing, riflery, archery, reptile study, snake ID, taxidermy, fishing, orienteering and much more. Campers will also have the opportunity to earn their hunter safety certification. The camp is open to youth ages 12 to 15. The fee is $325. A Target Shooting Sports Camp will be held July 11-16 at Millstone 4-H Center near Ellerbe. This is a weeklong camp that is based on the North Carolina 4-H Target Shooting Sports Program. Safety is the number one lesson and all participants will receive a safety orientation at the beginning of each lesson. Participants will be able to choose to concentrate on one of the five disciplines of rifle, archery, shotgun, muzzleloading and air pistol. Every camper will have a chance to enjoy each of the disciplines throughout the day. Participants will have plenty of range time to apply lessons learned. They will also receive personalized coaching and develop confidence on the range. The cost of the camp is $335. There are also many

are well suited to containers or patio pots.” Lilies are unusual in that they can be planted in fall or spring, she adds. “Being hardy, they thrive either way.” It wasn’t so long ago that lilies came only in four types: Asiatic, Oriental, Longiflorum and Trumpet (garden-only varieties with tremendous strength). Dutch breeders have been actively crossing those types, producing an average 60 to 70 new varieties each year. Most are developed to boost quality and make shipping easier for the cut flower industry. Names of the new types point to their parentage. “LO” hybrids, for example, are derived from Longiflorum-Oriental varieties and carry traits of both — notably large blooms and heavy fragrance. That also goes for the “OA” or OrientalAsiatics, with their bright colors, shiny foliage and softer scent. Then there’s the “LA” grouping, or LongiflorumAsiatic, which exhibit a brightly colored, trumpetshaped bloom. Add the double-petal and spider varieties and it’s easy to understand why flower fanciers are calling this the new golden age of the lily.

other camps offered around the state that focus on areas such as horses, leadership, teen mentoring, marine science, environmental day camps and even a beginning camp for 5-8 year olds. All of these opportunities at 4-H summer camp are a great way for young people to acquire new skills, make new friends and have a great time! Call Lee County 4-H at 775-5624 for more information about any of these camps or to register your child for an exciting summer camping adventure. We look forward to camping with you!

Getting control of fire ants


ire ants are a nuisance in the home landscape. Mounds detract from the overall beauty of your area, plus fire ants can inflict a painful sting! Unfortunately, fire ants are in Lee County to stay, so homeowners with a problem will need to learn effective management strategies. Red Imported Fire Ants (RIFA) were imported into the United States in the 1920s. The ants came from Brazil in infested soil used as cargo ship ballast. By 2003, all of Lee County was included in the NCDA quarantine area. Fire ants are social, organized insects with differing classes (similar to honeybees). The queen ant lays eggs (up to 1,500 per day) her entire life, which can last seven years. The ants forage for food when temperatures are between 72 and 96 F, which correlates to the afternoon during spring and fall and the evening in the summer. Fire ants are not very active during the winter. How do you know if you have fire ants and not another moundbuilding creature? Of course, if you have experienced the painful sting, you know! Sometimes the ants are not present, but a mound is. Fire ant mounds do not have an entrance hole — ants enter and exit from periphery tunnels. The ants vary in size, from 1/8-1/4 inch, depending on the class. Fire ants are unique in that they will run vertically up a stick (or leg) that penetrates the mound. Most people want to eradicate fire ants from the landscape, which certainly would be nice. Eradication efforts were made in the ‘60s and ‘70s, but were unsuccessful. Eradication is an impossible goal due to a number of factors, so we

Stephanie Romelczyk Garden Guide Romelczyk is the horticulture agent for N.C. Cooperative Extension in Lee County

are left to strive for the elimination of the problems caused by RIFA. The decision to start a control program for fire ants is a long-term commitment. Failure to keep up with a program could actually result in more ants. One option for control is to use mound drenches or powders. These insecticides work when the chemical comes in contact with the ant, so these treatments are effective at killing many worker ants, but often not the queen. If the queen survives, the colony survives. Contact insecticides, whether they be powder, liquid concentrate, or granular, will need to be watered in with enough water to penetrate the mound. Follow all instructions on the label. Always treat an undisturbed mound for the treatment to be effective (I know many of you like to kick the mound and watch them die!). Contact insecticides work quickly and are

extremely useful when mounds appear in hazardous areas including playgrounds, walkways and other places where human contact is likely. However, the quicker the treatment, the quicker the reinvasion. The other treatment option is to use a bait product. Bait products consist of a pesticide adsorbed onto a corn grit. Baits are attractive to fire ants, and workers gather the bait particles to bring back to the mound. Then, the bait (and pesticide) are fed to other worker ants, the brood and the queen, effectively exposing all the ants to the chemical. Baits work in one of two fashions: as a toxicant, meaning the chemical must be consumed, or as an insect growth regulator (IGR), meaning normal insect growth and development are disturbed. Toxicants work quicker than IGRs on average. While toxicants can provide maximum control in 2-4 weeks, IGRs often provide maximum control 2-6 months after application. When using a bait, follow these steps: 1. Use fresh bait from an unopened container less than 2 years old. 2. Apply baits when the ground and grass are dry and when no rain is expected for 24 hours. (Never water a bait in!) 3. Apply when worker ants are actively foraging. This can be determined by putting a piece of

greasy food (a chip, popcorn or hotdog) near the mound. Then check the food item in 30 minutes for activity. If ants are present, foraging is taking place. 4. Treat individual mounds by sprinkling the recommended amount of product around the mound, up to 3 feet away. Do not disturb the mound while treating. Also, do not apply the bait product on top of the mound, since fire ants do not forage for food on the mound. Although many Lee County residents battle with fire ants, many situations can be treated as individual mounds. Broadcast applications of a bait or a contact insecticide can be made if the area to be treated is large or there are 20 or more mounds to be treated.

Guide to healthy fast food

Continued from Page 1C

mont’s is one of about a half dozen that survive in North Carolina. For George Hall, Belmont’s theater evokes memories of “the good times we had as teenagers in junior high and high school.” “We might see a car load of girls and holler at each other. None of us was overly polished in the social arena,” said Hall, 77, a former Belmont City Council member. “It was sort of a community gathering place on warm summer evenings.” Martha Bigham remembers the bingo prize she won at the drive-in as a child: a small shovel and spade. She sat atop a ’49 Chevy to watch movies; and sometimes fell asleep in the backseat. “I’d wake up when we were leaving and all the lights came on with the other cars,” said Bigham, 60, a registered nurse at Carolinas Medical Center. “I remember our car going up and down over the little bumps.” Bigham and Hall hope the hometown theater sticks around for future generations. Bill and Peggy Lawing bought the place in 1981, after managing a drive-in in Biscoe, near Troy for 14 years. Belmont was his hometown; she’d grown up in Charlotte. They’d met at the Bar-B-Q King on Wilkinson Boulevard when both were in their teens. Their vision for Belmont Drive-In: a family entertainment center. Children had the run of the place. Bill Lawing didn’t want his wife working the concession stand because


ast food can be healthier than it is — there are still all those sodium issues (almost every item served at fast-food restaurants is high in sodium) — but at the very least we can make some lower-calorie choices. Make sure to check the company Web site and figure out what you’re going to order before you get there, NOT when you’re waiting in line.

Pentecost’s first job was picking up trash. Concession stand duty came next; then the ticket-office. Getting time off wasn’t easy. One night, sitting in the car with her date, an announcement blared over the drive-in loudspeaker for her to report to concessions. “They put me to work,” Pentecost said. “I was so embarrassed.”

NAME WILL CHANGE When Peggy Lawing’s husband died, she taught herself things she didn’t know about operating the theater. “She missed Dad so much,” Pentecost said. “They were always together.” Battling leukemia didn’t keep Lawing away. She

closed the theater’s season in November and was looking forward to a new one in April. Lawing died at 63, leaving $100,000 in unpaid medical bills, Pentecost said. At the concession stand this season is a “Memory Box” where customers can drop their favorite drivein stories — for $1 each. The money will go to pay medical expenses for her mother, Pentecost said. The family plans to update the theater, but keep its retro look. And they’ll change the name. Officially, it became Bill’s Belmont Drive-In after Pentecost’s father died. Now, it’s Bill and Peggy’s Belmont Drive-In. “This business was their dream, Pentecost said. “It’s their legacy.”

n Premium Grilled Chicken Classic Sandwich (without mayonnaise): 370 calories; 4.5 g fat; 50 g carbs; 32 g protein n Premium Southwest Salad with Grilled Chicken (before dressing): 320 calories; 9 g fat; 30 g carbs; 30 g protein n Bacon Ranch Salad with Grilled Chicken (before dressing): 260 calories; 9 g fat; 12 g carbs; 33 g protein n Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken (before dressing): 220 calories; 6 g fat; 12 g carbs; 30 g protein Fit Tip: Always choose grilled rather than crispy chicken, and hold the mayo. Newman’s Own Low Fat Balsamic Vinaigrette is the best dressing at 40 calories for 2 ounces, and Newman’s Own Low Fat Family Recipe Italian Dressing is only 60 calories. But watch out for the others — Newman’s Own Ranch dressing has a whopping 170 calories, and Newman’s Own Creamy Caesar dressing has 190. While I’m not a big fan of fried foods, keep in mind that if you go for Chicken McNuggets (six pieces) and that’s all you eat, it’s only 280 calories. The barbecue sauce is another 50.

Wendy’s n Ultimate Chicken Grill Sandwich without the sauce: 340 calories; 7 g fat; 41 g carbs; 29 g protein n Plain 10-ounce Baked Potato with Buttery Best Spread: 320 calories; 6 g fat; 61 g carbs; 7 g protein n Two quarter-pound Classic Singles without buns and mayo: 480 calories; 31 g fat; 11 g carbs; 41 g protein n Mandarin Chicken Salad with Grilled Chicken Fillet with Almonds (no noodles) and Fat-free French Dressing instead of the Sesame Dressing: 370 calories; 13 g fat; 38 g carbs; 29 g protein. You can also ask for the

salad without the almonds and save another 130 calories. Fit Tip: If you opt for a salad, watch the dressing. Even the low-calorie versions are 70-90 calories per packet. In some instances the regular dressings actually have as many calories as a burger. Get two Ultimate Chicken Grill Fillets without bread and with ketchup instead of the honey mustard for a total of only 250 calories. Avoid the Southwest Taco Salad; it’s 680 calories. The Chicken BLT Salad with Homestyle Chicken Fillet has a whopping 790 calories.

Burger King n Tendergrill Chicken Sandwich (plain without mayo): 380 calories; 9 g fat; 45 g carbs; 25 g protein. If you get the Tendergrill without any bread or sauce, it’s only 160 calories — not bad. n Whopper JR. Sandwich without mayo: 260 calories; 11 g fat; 28 g carbs; 14 g protein n BK Veggie Burger (without mayonnaise): 320 calories; 7 g fat; 43 g carbs; 22 g protein n Tendergrill Chicken Garden Salad (without Ken’s Fat Free Ranch Dressing): 210 calories; 7g fat; 8 g carbs; 29 g protein Fit Tip: For the salads, Burger King offers Ken’s Fat Free Ranch Dressing at 60 calories for 2 tablespoons, the Ken’s Light Italian is 120 calories (which is a bit high) — the other dressings — from 190 to 270 calories. Even a Whopper with just the patty, pickles, onions, tomatoes, lettuce and ketchup is only 270 calories.

Taco Bell n Two Fresco Ranchero Chicken Soft Tacos: 340 calories; 8 g fat; 44 g carbs; 24 g protein n Fresco Burrito Supreme (Chicken): 340 calories; 8 g

fat; 50 g carbs; 18 g protein n Fresco Burrito Supreme (Steak): 330 calories; 8 g fat; 49 g carbs; 16 g protein n Two Fresco Grilled Steak Soft Tacos: 320 calories; 9 g fat; 42 g carbs; 18 g protein Fit Tip: Order everything “Fresco Style” — meaning with salsa and without cheese or sauce. All the Fresco Style foods are pretty good.

Arby’s n Regular Roast Beef Sandwich: 350 calories; 13 g fat; 37 g carbs; 23 g protein n Chopped Farmhouse Chicken Salad Roast: 260 calories; 14 g fat; 10 g carbs; 24 g protein n Chopped Farmhouse Salad — Turkey and Ham: 250 calories; 14 g fat; 9 g carbs, 23 g protein Fit Tip: The bun is what costs you the most calories in any sandwich, so you might want to eat only half and save about 100 calories. Avoid all the Market Fresh Sandwiches — they’re very high in calories. All their dressings are pretty high in calories, too. Your best bet is the Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing at 130 calories per serving.

KFC n Tender Roast Sandwich (without sauce): 300 calories; 4 g fat; 28 g carbs; 34 g protein n Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad (no dressing, no croutons): 200 calories; 6 g fat; 4 g carbs; 33 g protein n Grilled Chicken BLT Salad (without dressing): 220 calories; 7 g fat; 6 g carbs; 35 g protein n 2 Original Recipe Chicken-Breasts (without skin or breading — you can order them this way): 300 calories; 5 g fat; 0 g carbs; 62 g protein n Grilled Filet Sandwich (without sauce): 280 calories; 3.5 g fat; 26 g carbs; 32 g protein Fit Tip: If you want a side, choose green beans (20 calories) or a large corn on the cob (140 calories). For salad dressing, use the Hidden Valley Original Ranch Fat Free Dressing — it’s only 35 calories — or the Marzetti Light Italian Dressing, which is only 10 calories. All the grilled chicken offerings have fewer calories, fewer fat grams and less sodium than the Original Recipe chicken.
