ELECTION 2010 • UNITED STATES 2ND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT Etheridge says issues, not YouTube are voters’ concerns

Underdog candidate blames both parties for nation’s ills

Challenger’s focus is on her opponent’s liberal vote record







hree months ago, U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge was vaulted into the national spotlight, the subject of a viral video capturing his physical confrontation with a college reporter on Washington, D.C. streets. Today, Etheridge is focusing on the issues, and not plucky, right-wing student reporters. “Elections ought to be about what you’ve done or what you want to do,” he said Friday, just hours after he defended his party’s policies in front of a gaggle of angry locals at a Sanford Bob Etheridge Herald candidates forum. Etheridge and Democrats across the nation are continuing to press their case before job-hungry voters that they are working to undo an inherited economic mess. “The economy’s changing, but lord it’s changing

om Rose wants you to know that he’s fed up. The Benson Libertarian, who is running as an underdog third-party candidate for the District 2 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, blames Democrats and Republicans alike for the stormy economy. “I’ve been watching the Democrats and Republicans running the country into the ground for the last 40 years,” Rose said Friday. Throughout his campaign, Rose has lobbed bombs at Democratic Tom Rose incumbent Bob Etheridge and his Republican challenger, Renee Ellmers. According to Rose, a transportation consultant who has lived in North Carolina for three decades, the country’s two largest political parties dropped the

y now, you might have seen Renee Ellmers televised battle with CNN commentator Anderson Cooper. The Dunn nurse tangled with Cooper for the better part of 10 minutes over the details of an Ellmers-approved ad blasting a proposed Islamic community center near the site of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in New York City. All questions of ad accuracy and intent aside, Dunn said she is representing the views of North Carolina’s 2nd congressional district. Renee Ellmers She brought those views with her to Sanford Saturday, mingling with locals at the Jetport Family Day and espousing her aggressive push to unseat Democratic incumbent Bob Etheridge. For the record, Ellmers isn’t backing down on her

The scriptural principles of the church, which is located at 2280 Nicholson Road, are now built into its physical foundation.

IMAGINATIONS SOAR A few hundred children got the ride of the lifetime as nearly 4,000 pack Raleigh Exec Jetport for annual Family Day By BILLY LIGGETT


SANFORD — Stepping out onto the wing of the single-engine plane that just moments earlier took him 1,500 feet higher than he’d ever been before, 12-yearold Brandon Johnson’s face was beaming. “I hope the other kids that get to do this are half as stoked as I am,” Johnson told his sister, Hannah, after the first flight of his life. The smiles, the excitement and the memories were abundant at Saturday’s second annual Family Day at the Raleigh Exec Jetport

Almanac Today is Sunday, Oct. 10, the 283rd day of 2010. There are 82 days left in the year. This day in history: On Oct. 10, 1935, the George Gershwin opera “Porgy and Bess,” featuring an allblack cast, opened on Broadway; it ran for 124 performances. (The libretto was by DuBose Heyward, who co-wrote the lyrics with Ira Gershwin.) In 1813, composer Giuseppe Verdi was born in Le Roncole, Italy. In 1845, the U.S. Naval Academy was established in Annapolis, Md. In 1913, the Panama Canal was effectively completed as President Woodrow Wilson sent a signal from the White House by telegraph, setting off explosives that destroyed a section of the Gamboa dike. In 1967, the Outer Space Treaty, prohibiting the placing of weapons of mass destruction on the moon or elsewhere in space, entered into force. In 1970, Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte was kidnapped by the Quebec Liberation Front, a militant separatist group. (Laporte’s body was found a week later.) Fiji became independent after nearly a century of British rule. In 1973, Vice President Spiro T. Agnew, accused of accepting bribes, pleaded no contest to one count of federal income tax evasion, and resigned his office. In 1980, some 5,000 people died when a pair of earthquakes struck northwestern Algeria. Former child actor Billie Thomas, who’d played “Buckwheat” in the “Our Gang” comedies, died in Los Angeles at age 49.

Tourney raises money for local soccer teams By ALEXA MILAN

SANFORD — Two players sat on opposite sides of the table in the center of a fenced-off area, eyes fixed intently on the person across from them, ready to dominate the competition. The referee stood between them, ready to call the shots. Friends gathered around each opponent, patting them on the back, whispering words of encouragement and offering food and water to keep their player’s strength up, almost like managers coaching their fighters in the corners of a boxing ring. But Saturday’s competition on the Sanford Area Soccer League fields wasn’t quite as extreme as a boxing match. At the sound of “rock, paper, scissors, shoot,� the players fired off the classic hand gestures most kids learn before they even reach kindergarten — pointer and middle fingers extended for scissors, hand flat for paper and hand balled into a fist for rock — until only one champion was left standing. After three rounds of intense play, 9-year-old Jonathan Guevara walked away with a trophy and a $50 cash prize. “It feels awesome,�

ALEXA MILAN/The Sanford Herald

Samuel Cabrera, right, and Jonathan Guevara were the two players in the finals and Jonathan won the tournament. They each got a trophy, Jonathan got $50 and Samuel got $25. Guevara said of his victory. “I believed in myself.� The rock-paper-scissors competition served as a fundraiser for two Sanford Area Soccer League teams, the 99 SASL Sabres and the 95 SASL Lightening. The SASL is a nonprofit organization that offers youth soccer programs. The money raised from the roshambo tournament will go toward registration fees and travel expenses. “We’re trying to do something unique,� said Julie Dutchess, manager of the Sabres. “(My husband and I) saw a tournament on TV and thought we’d try it.� Volunteers drew names from a hat to determine which players

would compete against each other. The player who won two out of three games advanced to the next round. People of all ages came to the field to support the teams. But Vicki Cannady, who participated in the competition and has two children playing soccer for the SASL, said she noticed a distinct trend when players first started

getting eliminated. “The young competitor has won every match so far,� Cannady said. “It shows it’s a game of luck and not about the wisdom of age.� Samuel Cabrera, 11, said the younger players simply had more skill. Cabrera’s rock-paperscissors skills took him all the way to second place overall, but he wasn’t ex-

actly thrilled about losing to Guevara. “It doesn’t feel right being beat by a 9-yearold,� Cabrera said. Though Cabrera said rock-paper-scissors is mostly a game of luck, the players had their own strategies. Cabrera said taking time-outs was a good way to relieve stress, while 15-year-old competitor Freddy McCollum took a different approach. “Make sure you look intimidating,� McCollum said. “And always go with scissors first.� Cannady said it was great to see people come together to help the SASL because the soccer teams have been such an important part of hers and her children’s lives. “It brings families and children together,� Cannady said. “We met people we wouldn’t have otherwise.� Dutchess plans to organize another rock-paper-scissors tournament in conjunction with the Sabres and Lightening Applebee’s fundraiser in the spring.

slow,� Etheridge bemoaned Friday. He’s facing an aggressive GOP challenge from Dunn nurse Renee Ellmers, who has not wasted opportunities to chide Etheridge for a proposed Islamic community center near Ground Zero, failing to pass along tax cuts to small businesses and, of course, his scrap with the junior reporter. Etheridge said his primary goal if re-elected would be to balance the federal budget, eliminating deficits that piled up during post-9/11 military campaigns and economic recovery efforts. The key, according to Etheridge, is that lawmakers have passed reforms aimed at limiting Con-

gress’ ability to rack up debt. The “paygo� legislation, according to Etheridge, will bring back the balanced budgets and federal surpluses and fluid job market that were a hallmark of President Bill Clinton’s final years in office. “People are angry, they’re angry for a number of reasons,� Etheridge said. “They’re worried about the economy. We’re working hard to deal with that. I get up every day thinking about what can we do to create more jobs.� Etheridge said the problems are not of the Democrats making, arguing Republican majorities scrapped “paygo� regulations during the Bush years and allowed a dearth of Wall Street regulations that sped the credit crisis. “You come in and the economy stinks,� he said.

“It takes some time to turn it around.� Etheridge promised to defend Social Security and back tax cuts for small businesses, a critical component of putting cash back in hand for timid American business owners. He also called for public-private partnerships to bolster the economy, a lingering problem in Lee County. “It’s going to take both parties,� he said. Etheridge defended Congress’ actions in the days following the economic collapse in 2008, anxiety-racked months when voters cried out for government intervention. The Democrat said the billions of dollars in bailouts for carmakers will, for the most part, be returned, adding that lawmakers actions helped to prevent further economic plunges. He cautioned against buying into conservative advertising, including those targeting Etheridge himself, that he said is primarily funded by bigbusiness entities. “People can hide behind the wall and you don’t know who they are,� he said. “That’s sort of like ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ You never know who’s standing behind the curtain.�

criticism of the community center or Democrats’ foreign policy. “We can’t let the economy distract us from being safe and strong,� she said. “And our president is continuing to show weakness.� What about the Islamic community center - or the mosque depending on who you ask - proposed to occupy a former Burlington Coat Factory near ground zero? “They can build their mosque, just build it somewhere else,� she said. The main target of Ellmers attacks, however, are leveled against Etheridge, who she criticized for backing the Democrat-led economic recovery package. “He was voting with Barack Obama and

Nancy Pelosi over the last two years, we’ve seen failed policies,� she said. “We were told this would create jobs and that unemployment would not go over 8 percent. But now we’re sustained at 9.9 percent and there are no jobs that were created.� Ellmers argued the economic recession began after Democrats seized power in Congress, although she conceded the policies that are blamed for the Wall Street collapse were in place long before. The GOP candidate also distanced herself from the unpopular Bush White House years, saying she is a supporter of a smaller federal government. “There was a lot of spending during the Bush administration, that’s one of the things I’m completely against,� Ellmers said. She did, however, defend the federal govern-

ment’s involvement in Wall Street regulation. “The federal government’s main job is to protect us and keep us safe,� she said. “That extends to the financial world as well and if there are risky things happening, that’s when government should get involved.� She said the economy would be spurred on if lawmakers approved tax cuts for small businesses, tax cuts she said Democrats and Etheridge allowed to lapse in recent Congress sessions. With just days to go before early voting begins, Ellmers would not say if the bitterly negative battle between her and Etheridge would continue, a tone she blamed on the Democrat. “He can’t run on his record,� she said. “So he has to try to find faults with mine.�

are clearing a path to American socialism. Rose said the federal government should remove itself from economic affairs and clear out federal agencies like the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Department of Energy and the Drug Enforcement Administration that he decries as wasteful. In Rose’s philosophy, states should shoulder most of the burdens of governing and create their own policies, leaving federal government officials solely to defend the country. “I’m much more conservative than most of the Republicans out there,� Rose said. Rose ran unsuccessfully for the N.C. General Assembly eight years ago, and he’s currently seeking a U.S. Congress seat that eager Republicans have hoped to wrest power from the longtime Democratic officeholder. He said he has rebuffed conservative calls for him to exit the race to leave Ellmers a better chance at victory. “I told them, ‘If you guys had been doing your

job, I wouldn’t be running,’� Rose said. “I’m not backing down. I’m not scared of them.� A Vietnam War veteran, Rose said he has remained an independent since he exited the U.S. navy in 1972, eventually settling in a right-wing branch of the Libertarian Party. Rose said the economy will only improve when government officials lower the taxes on residents and business owners and leave the crisis for the “free market� to remedy. “The free market is not trickle down economics,� he said. “It’s like a high tide that lifts all the boats. ... Let the entrepreneurs and dreamers take over. We’ll get the country back on track.� He said he would seek an across-the-board 20 percent spending cut if he is elected, rid the nation of what he described as a “destructive and corrupt� income tax system, and slash pay and benefits in the federal government. “I would start cutting from Obama on down to the lowest janitor in the White House,� Rose said.

SUNDAY THUMBS THUMBS UP: ELECTION INTEREST Thursday’s election forum drew a nearly packed house at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center’s auditorium Thursday night. This hasn’t always been the case in an election year for Herald-sponsored debates, so when we ran out of lemonade halfway through the event, that wasn’t necessarily bad news for us (except those of us who were thirsty). A special thanks to all of the candidates who took time from their busy schedules to participate (and make it an interesting and lively event), and thanks to

all of the voters and supporters who were in attendance. We only ask that next time, you respect all of the candidates more by holding applause or disapproving comments until after the proceedings. It’s important for all involved that all candidates feel respected at events such as this. All of the candidates — Democrat and Republican — are sacrificing time and money to serve the public, and they deserve that respect. Back to the turnout — if it’s any indication of what voter turnout will be on Nov. 2, Lee County should well exceed state averages. That’s something to strive for and be proud of.

THUMBS DOWN: MOVING THE TRIAL The poll results aren’t surprising — 95 percent of Moore County residents have heard about the nursing home shooting rampage that took eight lives in 2009. Actually, we thought that number would be a little higher. Lawyers defending the shooting suspect — Robert Stewart — are using this statistic and a poll result that says 55 percent of Moore Countians have already made a decision on whether or not Stewart is guilty (another number we find to be low) as a reason the trial should be moved away from Carthage.

The defense for Stewart wont’ be trying to prove that he didn’t do it — it’s all but fact that Stewart was the man who walked into a nursing home heavily armed and shot whoever stood in his way in his search for his estranged wife before he was taken down by a single shot from a Carthage police officer. They will, however, try to prove that he was not in the right mental state when the shootings happened. We understand the reason for their attempt. It’s an emotional issue. But should the judge allow a move, he or she will be selling Moore County short. The trial should be held in Carthage, and Stewart’s case should be made in front of his community.

Guest Editorial MOTHER NATURE DOESN’T PAY ATTENTION TO RECESSIONS She doesn’t care that we can’t afford to fix the roof. She rains, and the water seeps into the house and then we face a bigger bill than if we had performed timely maintenance. A number of unstoppable forces, including Mother Nature, are reminding University of North Carolina system officials that they can’t skimp on renovations, repairs and maintenance to the billions of dollars worth of facilities that they own. Hannah Gage, the chairman of the UNC Board of Governors, says the situation is a real “mess.” Half of the $7 billion worth of repair and renovation needs found in a 1999 study have not been addressed and, in the time since then, another $3 billion in needs have been identified. Taxpayers have been willing to help. In 2000, voters approved a bond issue that gave $3.1 billion to UNC and the community colleges. But much of that money went to new construction -- which is sometimes the best solution for old, out-of-date facilities that leak and creak. New construction was also needed because the state’s population continues to grow, and that means more students are coming to campus. They have to be put somewhere. Legislators have not kept their promises over the last two decades. In 1993, legislators set a goal for regular UNC maintenance. They’ve supplied only a bit more than one quarter of the needed money. So, what is the solution? Several ideas are floating around. A new bond issue could be dedicated to renovation and repair. But that raises the risk of spending money on old buildings that aren’t likely to be useful for a long time. A bond issue would also max out the state’s credit limit. North Carolina’s debt right now is bumping against that cap. There could be a major private fundraising campaign. At the very least, such an effort should be a part of any campaign using public money. It’s unlikely, however, that any private campaign could ever raise enough to meet the system’s huge needs all by itself. Private donors usually prefer to pay for new construction upon which the family name can appear. In the end, there is only one solution. Legislators must recognize that the university is an enormous physical asset that must be protected. UNC maintenance must get a higher priority in the annual budget. — Winston-Salem Journal, MCT

Today’s Prayer Taste and see that the Lord is good. (Psalm 34:8) PRAYER: Father, help me to be thankful for the small things in life as well as the large. Amen.

The thrill of flying O n occasion, I’ve been known to “thrill seek.” OK, so I’ve never skydived or climbed a mountain, but I’ve gone up in rickety B-17 bombers (twice), I’ve snorkeled with sea turtles in the Caribbean, I’ve conquered some of the country’s tallest and fastest roller coasters (with eyes open) and I’ve ridden that awful, awful stomach-turning monstrosity at the Lee Regional Fair known as the G-Force. When I arrived at Family Day at the Jetport Saturday with my wife and daughter, I wasn’t expecting to check off another item on my “cool” list, but that changed with local businessman and flight hobbyist Jerry Pedley asked me, “So ... you wanna go up?” Of course I want to go up. Jerry’s son, Jeremy (also a pilot), took me up in the Pedley’s Piper Cherokee Charger 235, a single-engine plane with 1970s Buick-inspired interior. Herald photographer Wesley Beeson joined us. And while what we actually did wouldn’t necessarily qualify as “daredevil” stuff, the experience was, to quote one of the 11-yearolds who went up before us, “pretty darn cool.” Then again, I think pilots in general are “pretty darn cool” to begin with. Whether they’re flying the single engine “toys” or the Boeings of the world, pilots are to be admired. In addition to the ability to fly, they often wear the cool aviator shades, the bomber jackets (sometimes) and the flowing scarves (again, sometimes). So as Wesley and I buckled in and donned our headphones (which was also cool), I probably came off as an 11-year-old with my line of questioning for Jeremy Pedley. “What’s the neatest thing you’ve seen from the air?” “How far can you fly on a tank of gas?” “What’s it like to be you?” Two of those were actual questions. Turns out, Jeremy did have a few good stories. The one that sticks in my mind most is that he and his dad were flying on Sept. 11, 2001, at the time the World Trade Center was attacked, and therefore, they were grounded in Georgia. The two stayed in a hotel thinking they’d be able to take off the next day, but once they caught on that all air traffic would be suspended for a while, they rented a car and drove back to North Carolina. He had another story about a bird hitting his windshield. That, of course, I was less interested in since there was the off chance that could happen to us. He assured us it was rare. And getting to sit in the front seat, he allowed me to “steer” the plane. I use quotations because he had steering controls, too, and I didn’t feel like I was doing much steering on my side. Yet, it was fun to pretend. This, I suppose, was the same thrill the younger versions of me — all 300 of them, according to David Williams of the Young Eagles program, which provided free flights in these planes throughout the day.

Letters to the Editor District 2 political ads are either misleading or of little interest to us To the Editor: Last night I saw a political ad that will fully start the television politics’ silly season. For most of us, it cannot end too soon. The ads are full of major distortions that have one slight grain of truth. The ad I saw was for Bob Etheridge. It stated that Renee Ellmers, his opponent, wants to enact a “new” 23 percent sales tax. The slight grain of truth is that her support of the “Fair Tax” does include a 23 percent sales tax. Even a cursory review of the Fair Tax shows that its main tenant is to eliminate federal income tax. In fact, the book’s cover has antiIRS logo. It is shame that he feels that his constituents are too stupid to know anything about this. He may assume that he helped create this stupidity while he was North Carolina Superintendant of Public Instruction. I have been a longtime supporter of Bob Etheridge, even when he appeared to be headed away from his constituents in N.C. He has fully escaped any connection to his district and now is just interested in getting support from those elsewhere who can help keep him in office in DC. In an effort to show that both sides are getting silly, Renee Ellmers’ ad about the mosque in New York was off base, as well. Although this is a matter for discussion, we here in North Carolina have issues that we can do something about that impact us. The mosque is a New York issue primarily, and nationally far down the list. I would be surprised if even half of the sitting members of congress had issued position statements. Why would they need to? I hope we can all survive this season. Do not believe what the ads say unless you can verify the fullness of the truth. The small grains do nothing more than distort truths. The voters of the 2nd District deserve better than these ads. Let’s see who steps up our level, rather racing for the bottom.


We can’t afford more political gridlock in D.C. To the Editor:

Billy Liggett Sanford Herald Editor Contact Billy Liggett by e-mail at Again, it wasn’t the craziest thing I’ve ever done, but it was certainly one of the coolest. And at a time when I’ve been bogged down in work and politics and lack of sleep and politics ... Saturday was a much-needed “fun day” for me. My thanks to the Pedleys and to the folks at Raleigh Exec for putting on such a fun and well-attended event. I’ll be back next year, aviator shades, bomber jacket, scarf and all. ❏❏❏ A few have asked about the video from Thursday night’s political forum hosted by The Herald. Thanks to our friends and neighbors at WBF-TV, we’ll be allowed to put their video on our website — — after it airs on their station. That means the video, which I imagine we will split into three part, will be posted on our website by Tuesday at the latest, unless a technical issue arises ... which they tend to do when you’re dealing with ripping DVDs and trying to stream them online. It’s a time-consuming process, but rest assured, we’ll work hard next week to make it happen. ❏❏❏ Next week, I’m going to have a little fun with this column and grade the political signs in Lee County. Driving around the past few weeks, the signs have been so abundant, their colors are beginning to burn into my retinas. And because I’ve been paying attention, I’ve decided to grade the signs, their designs and their effectiveness and present my findings to you in the form of a column. A little preview, you ask? The political signs for Mike Stone and Jimmy Love are SO similar ... (How similar are they?) They’re so similar, both of them reminded me at some point this week that I needed to pay my satellite bill. That, my friends, is called a joke. See you next week.

Robert Duff’s letter of Sept. 8 declared that, for philosophical reasons, he won’t vote across party lines under any circumstances ... ending with “like it or not, that’s how the system works.” I know that the great majority of my friends and neighbors in Carolina Trace and Sanford feel the same way. Fair enough, but ultimately that posture will not result in the best governance and certainly not in urgent times of crisis and recession like the present. We simply cannot afford the spreading malaise and partisan gridlock that is strangling congress. America’s greatest threat is not terrorism, but the fear, greed and lust for power that are driving our political machinery to the point of paralysis. Nothing of substance can pass the senate without a two-thirds vote, regardless of the urgency or the consequences, thanks to a solid bloc of Republicans in lock step. Dozens of judicial appointments are frozen in limbo, despite many vacancies and a huge backlog. With more and more billions in corporate and special interest money influencing so many of our “public servants” in congress, only the votes of concerned Americans can clean house and right the ship. Sen. Richard Burr is a fine example of a smooth, articulate Washington veteran and party loyalist who has accomplished little but is richly funded by corporate and special interests including insurance, energy and big pharma. He has firmly established himself as part of the Senate gridlock and can be counted on to preserve it. Elaine Marshall is a moderate, tough-minded independent thinker with an excellent world view and a fine track record of public service in this state. She is vastly underfunded compared to Burr but is unburdened by special interests — a rarity in the Senate. If you agree that she is a good choice, vote for her.

Money race in California

A few tidbits on Obama


f there were one contest Meg Whitman didn’t need to win in her bid to become governor of California, it was the race to collect the most money from individuals and businesses that do business with the state of California. Campaign disclosure reports filed on Tuesday of this week generated surprising headlines and revealed that Whitman — who is accusing her opponent, Jerry Brown, of being beholden to the state’s unions — has in fact raised more money ($10.7 million) from individuals, businesses and other groups than Brown ($9.5 million). The Los Angeles Times reported that among those maxing out (to the tune of $25,900) to Whitman are any number of businesses with an active lobbying presence in Sacramento, including Philip Morris, AT&T, the Western States Growers and Golden State Water Co. A very rich candidate has two big advantages in politics. The first and most obvious is that when they need money for their campaign, they don’t have to spend hours on the phone or in person coaxing cash from wealthy interests. They just take out their checkbooks. But the biggest advantage is the ability to trumpet their independence. You can’t buy the person who owns the store. You can’t corrupt someone who is funding their own campaign. At a time when most people in California are hurting, or have a family member, friend or neighbor who is, it’s hard to watch someone spend money like it’s water in an effort to get their face (or a bad screen shot of their opponent) on television. In the weeks before “Nannygate” (Whitman’s 9-year employment of an undocumented housekeeper) took over the campaign, there was already resentment brewing about just how wealthy the former head of eBay is and just how much cash she has to burn. Even so, she had a very good answer: She made that money herself. I, for one, respected the fact that this was a woman who made her billion and did it by building a business that fills my late nights with searches for the perfect designer suit or handbag. And I think many other Californians shared that respect. Equally important, the fact that she was funding her own campaign (or appeared to be) meant that if elected, she would owe no one — or at least no one with financial interests to be served by the decisions she would make as governor. At a time when people don’t have much faith in the integrity of their government, that’s no small thing. But the latest disclosures have taken it away. Sure, if you add in the money the unions spent supporting Brown through “independent” expenditures, he’s had more outside help than Whitman. But even there, Whitman has pulled in outside help from unions. The bottom line is that Brown needed that cash; Whitman didn’t. Would she be in any different shape, politically or even financially, without the $10 million in outside donations? When you’re spending more than $100 million of your own money, what’s an extra $10 million or $20 million compared to the value of being able to say that you really are a different kind of politician? Whitman should have taken better care of her housekeeper. She should have hired a lawyer for her and been very generous about severance, giving her every reason to keep quiet and stay away from Gloria Allred. That would have been more than just good politics. It would have been good, period. And she should have limited contributions to her campaign and pledged to not take money from any business or individual who does business with the state of California. She was rich enough to do it, and it would have been the right thing to do. Maybe if she’d had more experience in politics or better advisers she would have made different decisions. But her failure to do so is contributing to a growing sense that she is not, in fact, a different kind of politician, a different kind of leader. In winning the money race, she has hurt herself in the race that really matters.

J Economic ignorance


ne of President Obama’s campaign promises was not to raise taxes on middle-class Americans. So here’s my question: If there’s a corporate tax increase either in the form of “cap and trade” or income tax, does it turn out to be a middle-class tax increase? Most people would say no but let’s look at it. There’s a whole subject area in economics known as tax incidence — namely, who bears the burden of a tax? The first thing that should be recognized is that the burden of a tax is not necessarily borne by the party upon whom it is levied. That is, for example, if a sales tax is levied on gasoline retailers, they don’t bear the full burden of the tax. Part of it is shifted to customers in the form of higher gasoline prices. Suppose your local politician tells you, as a homeowner, “I’m not going to raise taxes on you! I’m going to raise taxes on your land.” You’d probably tell him that he’s an idiot because land does not pay taxes; only people pay taxes. That means a tax on your land is a tax on you. You say, “Williams, that’s pretty elementary, isn’t it?” Not quite. What about the politician who tells us that he’s not going to raise taxes on the middle class; instead, he’s going to raise corporate income taxes as means to get rich corporations to pay their rightful share of government? If a tax is levied on a corporation, and if it is to survive, it will have one of three responses, or some combination thereof. One response is to raise the price of its product, so who bears the burden? Another response is to lower dividends; again, who bears the burden? Yet another response is to lay off workers. In each case, it is people, not some legal fiction called a corporation, who bear the burden of the tax. Because corporations have these responses to the imposition of a tax, they are merely government tax collectors. They collect money from people and send it to Washington. Therefore, you should tell that politician, who promises to tax corporations instead of you, that he’s an idiot because corporations, like land, do not pay taxes. Only people pay taxes. Here’s another tax question, even though it doesn’t sound like it. Which

Walter Williams Syndicated Columnist Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

workers receive higher pay: those on a road construction project moving dirt with shovels and wheelbarrows or those moving dirt atop a giant earthmover? If you said the worker atop the earthmover, go to the head of the class. But why? It’s not because he’s unionized or that construction contractors have a fondness for earthmover operators. It’s because the worker atop the earthmover is working with more capital, thereby making him more productive. Higher productivity means higher wages. It’s not rocket science to conclude that whatever lowers the cost of capital formation, such as lowering the cost of investing in earthmovers, enables contractors to purchase more of them. Workers will have more capital to work with and as a result enjoy higher wages. Policies that raise the cost of capital formation such as capital gains taxes, low depreciation allowances and corporate taxes, thereby reduce capital formation, and serve neither the interests of workers, investors nor consumers. It does serve the interests of politicians who get more resources to be able to buy votes. You might wonder how congressmen can get away with taxes and other measures that reduce our prosperity potential. Part of the answer is ignorance and the anti-business climate promoted in academia and the news media. The more important reason is that prosperity foregone is invisible. In other words, we can never tell how much richer we would have been without today’s level of congressional interference in our lives and therefore don’t fight it as much as we should.

ust in case anyone mistakenly believes Obama has heard (or gives a rip about) the loud voice of the American people rejecting his socialism, appeasement, unconstitutional abuses of power and unpresidential combativeness and divisiveness, let me share a few tidbits. ■ After House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, issued a damning critique of Obama’s economic policies, the administration’s economic philosopher Joe Biden issued a rebuttal, assuring us it was their predecessor who got us into this mess. That’s novel. ■ Obama renewed his war on Fox News, saying it is a “destructive” force in American society, while the White House lauded MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow as providing “an invaluable service” to America. ■ Rep. Paul Ryan reports that Obama’s latest “fiscal year ends in fiscal failure.” Congress broke for recess, “prioritizing election over stopping looming tax hikes.” It failed to complete any of the 12 annual appropriations bills, pass a budget resolution and stop the tax increases. ■ The White House produced a bizarre tax video series, with the first one claiming that “objective economists” all agree that raising taxes in this bad economy would be good for the economy. Surreal. ■ On a conference call, Obama and top administration officials beseeched thousands of faith-based and community organizations to “get out there and spread the word” in favor of Obamacare. You’ve gotta love the left’s consistency on church-state separation. ■ Obama agreed to donate $100 billion to the United Nations. Andrea Lafferty of The Traditional Values Coalition wrote, “The U.S. taxpayer is forced to pay billions to an inefficient organization run by world leaders who hate America and the free market system.” Just so. ■ Obama’s venerable partner, Vice President Joe Biden, said, “If I hear one more Republican tell me about balancing the budget, I am going to strangle them.” Yes, how dare Republicans voice the outrage of the people over the bankrupting of our children! And they talked about Cheney. ■ Obama, the man who promised he would bring us together, fired yet another class warfare missile into the political mix, shifting his traditional argument against the Bush tax cuts from budget concerns to the “income gap.” In other words, the rich make too much and we ought to use the tax code to punish them. This is the same philosophy he espoused to Charlie Gibson when he admitted he favors increases in capital gains tax rates even though such increases reduce revenues — “as a matter of fairness,” i.e., punishing the rich even if it hurts everyone else. ■ Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency admits its new greenhouse gas regulations could very well “slow construction nationwide for years.” For what? We know these green policies won’t appreciably reduce global temperature over the next century. ■ With the disastrous consequences of Obamacare already unfolding before our eyes, Obama has already granted 30 exemptions and waivers to insurers, employers and union plans. If you were king, wouldn’t you? ■ Rasmussen Reports reveals that just 36 percent of voters believe race relations between blacks and whites are improving — down from 62 percent in July 2009. ■ Democratic Rep. James Clyburn says, “Next year, we may even get the public option.” Swell. ■ Under Obama, the number of people receiving food stamps is at an all-time high: 41.8 million people, compared with 32 million when Obama began. ■ At a time when we need to encourage energy production, Obama’s Interior Department is poised to begin a major review of the process of approving offshore drilling without advance detailed environmental studies. ■ Oh, yes, and don’t forget that Obama expects us to believe that $50 billion more in stimulus money would “jump-start” the economy, when $868 billion hasn’t.

ine years ago, artist Jan Lawrence made a decision to join the team who brought No Scare Fair to Sanford. There was a committee of around eight people who believed this event would be a wonderful annual addition to Lee County the Saturday before Halloween. As well as building community, they said, it would also serve to benefit at-risk families in the area. In order to pull this off, there needed to be a couple of dedicated artists. Lucky for the organizers, Lawrence said “yes� and the fun and work began. A sponsor wall was designed, built and painted, as well as 24 theater flats. From sketches to transparencies to the actual painting of the doors, Lawrence was a major force. Fast forward nine years — Carol Carlson, the founder of No Scare Fair, and Lawrence had a chance meeting and began to talk about this year’s event. Carol said that while she has loved the sponsor wall in the past, it needed an updated

Without hesitation, Carlson said, Lawrence said she would design a new wall. Carlson said the results have been “amazing.� The wall includes friendly ghosts, pumpkins, a not-so-imposing house on a hill and a bright yellow full moon, but there is something else — a very happy, very big scarecrow

that will hold the names of all the sponsors. The crow was cut out by Lawrence’s husband, Bob. “This wall is a delightful, welcoming entry for all those special guests who will visit No Scare Fair,� said Carlson. The event is slated for Oct. 30 at the Stevens Center. Another addition to No Scare Fair this year is a photo-op design that will

be introduced at the Oct. 23 Jub-i-Lee Festival. “So often (event organizers) Willing Hands talks about the 150 volunteers it takes to put on No Scare Fair and Jan and Bob Lawrence are two of those,� Carlson said. “If you happen to see them, please remember to thank them for their many hours of creative service to this worthwhile event.�

‘Ol’ Ball Coach’ scores Gamecocks’ biggest win ever



COLUMBIA, S.C. — Steve Spurrier finally delivered South Carolina’s biggest win ever. Stephen Garcia threw three touchdown passes, two to Alshon Jeffrey, and Marcus Lattimore scored three times as the 19th-ranked Gamecocks stunned No. 1 Alabama 35-21 on Saturday. The defending national champion Crimson Tide had won 19 straight games — including last week’s 31-6 rout of Florida — since losing the Sugar Bowl after the 2008 season to Utah. The Gamecocks (4-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) had never beaten a No. 1 team in four previous tries. “We played some ball today,” Spurrier said. “We played until the end, looked up and we’d beaten number one by a couple of touchdowns. Hopefully, it was something we can build on.” The Head Ball Coach, in his sixth season at South Carolina, had the players to beat Alabama using the Tide’s own formula. Garcia and the Gamecocks cashed in on chances when they got close to the goal line and shut down the best tailback duo in the country, mak-

North Carolina running back Johnny White (34) runs for a touchdown past Clemson cornerback Xavier Brewer (29) during the second half in Chapel Hill Saturday. North Carolina won 21-16.

White leads North Carolina past Clemson By JOEDY McCREARY AP Sports Writer

CHAPEL HILL — Johnny White rushed for two touchdowns and gained 179 total yards, and North Carolina held on to beat Clemson 2116 on Saturday for its third straight victory. White caught six passes for 90 yards, finished with 89 yards rushing and scored on runs of 4 and 26 yards. T.J. Yates was 18-for-34 for 164 yards with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Jheranie Boyd for the Tar Heels (3-2, 11 Atlantic Coast Conference). They coaxed just enough production out of the offense to beat the Tigers for the first time since 2001. Kyle Parker’s 74-yard TD pass to Jaron Brown with 5:31 left pulled the Tigers (2-3, 0-2) within five, but they couldn’t convert the two-point attempt and didn’t get the ball back until only 13 seconds

remained. Parker then threw three deep passes, all incompletions. He finished 21-for-38 for 214 yards for the Tigers, who were held to a season-low 305 total yards and lost their third straight. The Tar Heels — who finished with 255 total yards and were held to 15 total yards in the third quarter — certainly needed both of White’s scoring runs. Two plays after his 12-yard catch from Yates on fourth-and-4, White bounced off a series of tacklers on his way to the end zone. That 26yard run extended the lead to 21-10 with 6:53 to play. Jamie Harper pulled the Tigers to 14-10 with a 10yard touchdown run with 5½ minutes left in the third. Clemson drove into North Carolina territory on its next possession, but the drive stalled at the 24 and Chandler Catanzaro’s 42-yard field goal was wide right.

Brown finished with 107 yards receiving on four catches for the Tigers. On a day safety Deunta Williams returned to the Tar Heels following a four-game suspension, the school also announced a few hours before kickoff that fullback Devon Ramsay — who had played in the previous four games — would sit out after additional information turned up in the ongoing NCAA investigation of the program. The school also said safety Jonathan Smith — who had been held out — would not play this season, but didn’t specify why. That had the potential to create yet another distraction in a season full of them for the Tar Heels, but they certainly came out looking focused. White powered in from 4 yards out to cap their opening drive — a 12-play, 48-yard march during which Yates was 6 of 7 for 35 yards.

CHARLOTTE — In the little more than 20 years since major pro sports arrived in this town, Julius Peppers has little competition as the most polarizing pro sports figure. A local kid who starred at the state college, Peppers arrived in 2002 with great fanfare as the No. 2 overall pick of the Carolina Panthers. Peppers Yet he never was comfortable as face of the franchise and always kept a distance from fans and media. Freakishly athletic, Peppers routinely did things defensive ends aren’t supposed to do. He made five Pro Bowls, was selected to the NFL all-decade team, led the Panthers to the Super Bowl and put his name all over Carolina’s record book. Yet he would also disappear for long stretches — even an entire season in 2007. His coaches and teammates would vehemently defend him, yet Peppers declared more than once he wanted to play elsewhere despite a salary that swelled to $18.2 million last season. When the Panthers let him leave in the spring, he insisted it was the team’s decision and he had no choice but to sign with Chicago. Carrying all that history, baggage and contradictions, Peppers returns on Sunday with the Bears, unsure how he’ll be received in a stadium that used to be littered with fans dressed in his No. 90

Report: Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn has cancer SAN DIEGO (AP) — Hall of Fame outfielder Tony Gwynn says he has cancer in a salivary gland. He told The San Diego UnionTribune the cancer was discovered last month and he faces seven to eight weeks of treatment — radiation five times a week and chemotherapy once a week. “The doctors have told me they feel they caught the cancer early and there was not much of it there,” he said in a story published Saturday. The parotid cancer was diagnosed after the former Padres star had a third round of surgery since 1997 to remove a tumor on the parotid gland. The previous procedures found no malignancies. Gwynn is San Diego State’s baseball coach, and the school confirmed Gwynn’s condition to The Associated Press.

Chasers closing gap on 4-time champ Johnson

Rays come alive against Rangers to keep series going

FONTANA, Calif. (AP) — Jimmie Johnson is back in a familiar place, atop the points lead, headed toward what appears to be the inevitable: a fifth straight Sprint Cup championship. Not so fast. This Chase doesn’t have quite the same herewe-go-again feel as the others. The Chasers chasing Johnson have closed the gap, on the track and in their heads. Nine drivers are within 101 points of his lead and the No. 48 Johnson in the rearview mirror no longer strikes fear in opponents as it once did. Johnson hasn’t seemed nearly as dominant, either, an up-and-down ride that has included six wins but just as many 30th-orworses. A fifth straight title is certainly still a possibility. It’s just this season it seems he’ll

ARLINGTON, Texas — Tampa Bay’s hitters woke up just in time, and the Rays get to play another day. John Jaso lined a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning after Carlos Pena delivered a rare clutch playoff hit for Tampa Bay, and the Rays avoided elimination in the AL division series with a 6-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday. The Rays, the AL’s best team in the regular season, cut their deficit in the bestof-five series to 2-1. Game 4 is Sunday. Limited to a total of one run while losing the first two games at home, Tampa Bay broke loose in the late innings.

VOLLEYBALL Campbell tops Stetson in conference play BUIES CREEK — Four Camels collected doubledigit points to lead Campbell past Stetson 3-1 (25-21, 23-25, 25-17, 27-25) in Atlantic Sun action, Saturday afternoon inside the John W. Pope Jr. Convocation Center. Campbell improves to 8-12 overall and 3-1 in conference matches with the weekend home sweep, while Stetson falls to 1-18 with a 0-4 A-Sun mark. The Camels have won six of their last eight matches. Senior outside hitter Emily Werner gathered 17 kills on the afternoon, adding eight digs, an ace and a block. Allyson Goldbach, another senior outside hitter, posted 15 kills and a career-high 20 digs with four aces and two blocks. Junior middle blocker Annie Kobeski also chipped in 10 kills with two blocks. Senior middle Caitlin Bendy, meanwhile, tacked on eight kills, seven blocks, including three solo, and an ace. Senior Caroline Hammersley added three blocks, two kills and four digs in the win. Kelsey Campbell and Lauren Garza combined for 31 digs, while the tandem of Heather Wilson and Hope Leatigaga posted 39 assists together. Freshman Kaley Melville led the Hatters with 13 kills and 12 digs, while junior middle blocker Sam Freeman posted nine kills and four blocks.

Sophomore setter Kelli Carneal notched 37 assists, seven digs and five kills in the loss, while Monique Russell added 22 digs.


HEADACHES Within a matter of several weeks, the treatment my son received at Ammons Chiropractic ended his severe headaches. All through childhood, my son experienced occasional headaches, usually occurring suddenly, and sometimes severe enough that sleep provided the only relief. At age 15, he began to have headaches more frequently, sometimes several times in a day, and three to four times a week. Conventional medical blood tests revealed no clues, an eye exam and an MRI showed nothing abnormal, but the headaches continued. My son could feel a difference seconds after the ďŹ rst treatment, and within two weeks experienced no more of the debilitating head pain. He also has peace of mind instead of fear of a headache striking at any time. After seeing the beneďŹ ts to my son, I also received orthogonal treatment for neck pain and tightness, a sensation of “crimpingâ€? that I never seemed able to stretch out, and which had plagued me for probably 25 years. One treatment was all it took to relieve the neck tightness – and after a year, my neck remains comfortable and correctly aligned. Ammons Chiropractic personnel are consummate professionals, careful, methodical, gentle and absolutely committed to seeking solutions.

Campbell edges Mercer 3-2 BUIES CREEK — An own goal in the 89th minute lifted Campbell to a 3-2 Atlantic Sun Conference men’s soccer victory over Mercer Saturday at the Eakes Athletic Complex. The decisive strike came when Brian Urioste whipped a cross to the top of the Mercer box that was defected by Mercer defender Josh Shutter over keeper Brett Petricek and into the net. Campbell (4-3-4, 2-1-0 A-Sun) never trailed in the contest, but Mercer (6-3-1, 1-2-0) equalized twice before the final minutes. The Camels went front on Keegan Terry’s ninth minute goal, and again in the 55th minute through Justin Franz. However, Mercer’s Richie Edmondson (17th minute) and Taylor Krek (66th) drew the Bears level on two occasions.

App. St. holds off Elon


N.C. State’s Russell Wilson (16) blocks Boston College’s Steele Divitto (49) during the first half of Saturday’s game at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh.

Wilson, Pack return to form

RALEIGH (AP) — Russell Wilson threw for 328 yards and three touchdowns to help North Carolina State beat Boston College 44-17 on Saturday, giving Tom O’Brien his first win against his former program. Owen Spencer, Darrell Davis and Jarvis Williams had TD catches for the Wolfpack (5-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who dominated the Eagles (2-3, 0-2) the entire way. D.J. Green recovered a blocked punt in the end zone for a first-quarter touchdown, while C.J. Wilson returned an interception for a score in the third. O’Brien spent 10 seasons with BC before taking over here before the 2007 season. Boston College had won all three meetings since and scored at least 37 points each time, including a 52-20 rout last season. But N.C. State reversed

that trend and proved it can bounce back from a disappointing loss. Last week, the Wolfpack — carrying the program’s first national ranking in seven years — led Virginia Tech 17-0 at home before the Hokies rallied for a 41-30 win that drained some of the buzz that had built around Carter-Finley Stadium. But N.C. State showed no lingering effects, using those defensive and special-teams scores to supplement another strong performance from Wilson. Wilson threw two interceptions, one coming when a ball deflected off the hands of tight end George Bryan and the other when he overthrew a pass downfield to an open receiver. But the rest of the time, he had his way with the Eagles, completing 38 of 51 passes while also running for 45 yards.

After Green’s TD recovery, Wilson pump-faked then threw a perfect pass over the middle to Spencer for a 23-yard touchdown that made it 17-3 early in the second quarter. Two possessions later, Wilson found Davis for a 5-yard score on the left side to push that margin to 24-3 midway through the quarter. Wilson found Williams for a 6-yard score early in the fourth, with the receiver pushing through a tackle and stretching the ball over the pylon to make it 41-10 with 13½ minutes left. Boston College had no such offensive success. With freshman Chase Rettig out with an ankle injury, coach Frank Spaziani went with Dave Shinskie as the starting quarterback. Shinskie struggled all day, completing just 7 of 24 passes for 89 yards with two interceptions.

BOONE (AP) — DeAndre Presley rushed for 170 yards and two touchdowns and passed for another score as Appalachian State held off Elon 34-31 on Saturday to remain undefeated. Presley was 14-for19 for 204 yards for the Mountaineers (5-0, 3-0 Southern Conference), who won their 23rd straight league game and 15th in a row over the Phoenix (2-4, 1-2) before a record crowd of 31,531. Presley’s career-long 53-yard scoring run put Appalachian State ahead 20-10 with 2:37 to go in the second quarter. Scott Riddle threw the first of his three TD passes, a 6yarder to Aaron Mellette, to make it 20-17. Presley scored in the third on a 44-yard run,

ing themselves a factor in the SEC title chase. They could run into the Tide again at the SEC championship game in Atlanta. “I actually talked to (Greg) McElroy after the game and he said, ’We’ll see you all again,”’ said Garcia, who was pulled from South Carolina’s last game, a 35-27 loss at Auburn, after fumbling twice. South Carolina shredded the country’s toprated scoring defense, putting up the most points on Alabama (5-1, 2-1) since a

which Riddle answered with a 43-yard TD pass to Mellette for 27-24. Presley widened the lead early in the fourth with a 13-yard pass to CoCo Hillary. After Riddle’s 17-yard TD to Sean Jeffcoat with 3:50 left, Appalachian State ran out the clock.

Hampton rallies to beat NC Central DURHAM (AP) — Hampton’s Matt Davis and Ricardo Silva scored on long interception returns as the Pirates rallied with 20 fourthquarter points in a 27-13 win over North Carolina Central on Saturday. Hampton (4-1) trailed 13-0 with 10:56 left in the first half before Isiah Thomas scored on a 6-

41-34 loss to LSU in 2007. The Gamecocks scored four touchdowns when they got inside the ’Bama 20 — double what the Crimson Tide had allowed coming in. Alabama’s Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson were held to 64 yards on the ground as the Crimson Tide tried to rally back, just as it had in beating Arkansas 24-20 two games ago. The Crimson Tide made a charge, getting an odd safety by Garcia, a field goal and a 51-yard touchdown catch by Darius Hanks that turned a South Carolina’s 21-9 lead into a 28-21 ballgame. Alabama’s last chance

yard run to make it 13-7. The Eagles missed a 27-yard field goal attempt early in the fourth. On the Pirates’ next possession, they ran seven rushing plays, then scored on a 19yard pass from Thomas to Javaris Brown to cap an 80-yard drive with 9:14 left. With N.C. Central (2-3) on the Hampton 39, Davis intercepted a Michael Johnson pass and ran it 55 yards for a score with 7:51 left. Both teams punted, then on fourth-and-10 from the Eagles 48, Silva intercepted a Jordan Reid pass and returned it 68 yards with 2:10 remaining. Tim Shankle had 107 yards and a TD for N.C. Central.

to tighten things came at the start of the fourth quarter when Jeffery, the SEC’s leading receiver, bobbled a catch into the hands of Tide defensive back Will Lowery for an interception. But Greg McElroy was sacked for a 7-yard loss by Stephon Gilmore and Alabama coach Nick Saban called a fake field goal that didn’t come close to working as defensive lineman Ed Stinson dropped the throw from holder A.J. McCarron. South Carolina answered with a 75-yard drive, capped by Lattimore’s 2-yard score with 7:01 left that put the game away.

have to work a little harder to get it. “It’s a more even playing field than it has ever been,� said Clint Bowyer, 12th in the Chase standings. “I don’t think they have the one-up on the competition every week. I think it’s going to be a struggle to win that championship all the way down to Homestead.� There have been some uncharacteristic struggles already. Johnson opened the season with a 35th at Daytona due to a rear axle problem, won three of the next four races, then went on a nowhe’s-up, now-he’s-down stretch of racing. He entered the Chase seventh in points and opened the 10-race run to the finish with a 25th at New Hampshire — worst among the Chase drivers — thanks to a loose right wheel. Then, as he always seems to, Johnson hit the accelerator. He won the second Chase race in Dover and overcame a weak qualifying session in Kansas last week to claw his way to a second-place finish and the points lead, eight ahead of Denny Hamlin. This weekend, Johnson is back home in Southern California at Auto Club Speedway, where he’s won four of his five Fontana titles in the past six starts and hasn’t finished out of the top 10 since 2006. “I really don’t want to fall into a false sense of security and think that because we have run well here in the past that we’re going to come back and have it again,� said Johnson, who’ll start eighth in Sunday’s 400-mile race. “You have to come back and prove your-

Even with those four straight titles, Johnson may still have something to prove to his fellow drivers. They just don’t seem as scared as they once did. Johnson still had that coming-to-get-you air of invincibility last season, the mere sight of him in the mirror like a shark bearing down at 200 mph. Hamlin certainly felt the fear while leading at California in the fourth Chase race, panicking and crashing as the No. 48 grew larger in his rearview. This season, drivers believe they can beat Johnson, that their teams aren’t looking down the pits at the Lowe’s Chevrolet with where’d-they-get-that-from looks on their faces. That was clear at the first California race in February, when Kevin Harvick said he knew his team had caught the 48 and they were equals — after finishing second to Johnson. “Can they be beat this year? Certainly. This year more than any year,â€? Bow-

yer said. “I’ve said it from the beginning of the Chase and even halfway through the season, he’s had moments of struggles and Kansas was certainly one of them, but they turned that thing around and got an awesome finish out of if. He’s definitely shown some signs of not being perfect all the time this year and maybe one of those things can bite them.� Now it’s time to take advantage. Problem is, no matter how much the drivers and teams believe they’ve closed the gap, they still have to race past it and him. “I’ve said for five years, they’re the best team out there and somebody has to beat them and knock them down before you can say they’re not the best team,� said Matt Kenseth, 11th in the Chase standings. “Everybody says, ‘Oh, they don’t have momentum. They’re not running as good.’ Well, as soon as somebody shows they can beat them, I’ll believe it.� This may be their best chance yet.

The Sanford Herald / Sunday, October 10, 2010 / 7B



Flying with crematory ashes requires advance planning DEAR ABBY: My wife recently died of lung cancer. While the family would like her ashes buried at the family plot, it was my wife’s wish for her remains to be scattered in a favorite location far away. Family members are trying to discourage me by raising all sorts of issues. Abby, is there any TSA or airline rule/law that would prevent me from carrying my wife’s ashes on a flight to another state? — MISSING MY LADY OUT WEST

Happy Birthday: Emotional deception will be the enemy this year. Consider all the angles before you make a decision that may lead you in the wrong direction. Focus on work, money and getting ahead professionally. You can make changes this year that set the stage for years to come. Don’t sell yourself short. Your numbers are 8, 17, 23, 25, 31, 42, 48 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Embrace change and show satisfaction with what you have and can accomplish. Allow a little leeway for those unable to adjust as quickly as you. Don’t let a burden become too big an issue or you will have trouble controlling it. 3 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep everything in perspective, especially when it pertains to home and love life. Personal issues are likely to arise if someone doesn’t feel you have been paying enough attention to your personal responsibilities. Finish what needs to be done. 3 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A serious approach to your future should be discussed with people who can help or will be affected by the decision you make. You have the ability and the discipline to follow through with something you’ve wanted to do for a long time. 3 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): Someone may try to limit your success or hold you back. Added responsibilities will put pressure on your tight schedule if you don’t find a way to delegate some of the work. Be a mastermind at preparation and organization. 3 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t give up on someone who is having a tough time figuring things out. Emotional upset, coupled with a lack of information can lead you astray. Concentrate on helping others or volunteering in your community. 5 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s recognizing what you have and what you can do with it that will make the dif-


ference in the way you view your future. Love is in the stars, so get together with someone with whom you can share your emotions. Use past experience to help you now. 4 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You are being too restrictive and overbearing regarding your relationships and your responsibilities. Think outside the box and you will find a way for greater possibilities to unfold. Don’t let depression get in your way. 3 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Pick the activity or the group with which you want to interact. Don’t leave any outcome up to someone else. There are changes to be made that will bring you greater options and allow you to take something you’ve been working on to new heights. 3 stars SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Acceptance is the key to getting ahead. Concentrate more on what you can do, not what you cannot. Hard work and research will pay off. Contact people you have worked with in the past and see what possibilities exist. 3 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Gauge what you offer by what you feel is necessary. Put more time into your personal life if it will help ease your mind regarding long-term issues. Greater opportunities will help you put the past behind you. 4 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotional deception is the enemy. Make sure you understand what the consequences are before you offer to do or say something you might regret. Not everyone will be on your side or be sincere. Negotiate your position without emotion. 2 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can find out important information. Talk about your feelings and share your intentions and plans for the future. Once you know where you stand, it will be easier to adjust your plans to suit everyone’s needs or to move on alone. 5 stars

DEAR MISSING: Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your wife. I spoke with Transportation Security Administration spokesman Greg Soule. One challenge with transporting crematory remains may involve the security screening process. TSA personnel will never ask you to open an urn. However, if the urn is made of metal that cannot be penetrated by X-ray, it would have to be packed in your checked baggage or shipped. Some funeral homes will transfer ashes to a temporary plastic container in situations like this. Urns made of ceramic or wood typically do not present a challenge. Mr. Soule said he is not aware of any airline that prohibits passengers from traveling with crematory remains, but it’s a good idea to check with the airline in advance. You should also visit, click on “For Travelers” and read the section on “Traveling With Special Items.”

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

❏❏❏ DEAR ABBY: I consider myself an intelligent, accomplished young woman. I get good grades. I aced my SATs and am an accomplished musician. My problem is I’m afraid I project an image that is too “girly” or immature. I have a naturally high voice and people seem surprised when they learn how well I do in school and in extracurricular activities. Sometimes I’m tempted to prove them wrong, but I’m also worried about the impression I give professors, employers and those who matter. How do I present myself more professionally so that people will take me seriously without sacrificing my femininity? — STUDENT IN OBERLIN, OHIO DEAR STUDENT: Whether it’s fair or not, many people do form preconceptions because of the way someone presents her- or himself. Two suggestions come immedi-

ately to mind. Ask an adult to go through your closet with you and help you coordinate outfits that are conservative and more mature than “school outfits.” If you have the money, start investing in some clothes that are suited to a business environment. And last -- but not least -- talk to a voice coach or speech therapist about lowering the register of your voice, which will make you appear to be older and more assertive. ❏❏❏ DEAR ABBY: I am the father of a well-educated, 27-year-old daughter who has a master’s degree. Yet she never remembers birthdays, Christmas, Father’s Day, etc. with a gift. While I have never expected anything lavish, it’s hurtful to receive nothing but a card. My daughter wasn’t raised this way. She was fortunate to have two professional parents who provided a very good life for her. What should I do, Abby? Should I just send a card for her birthday and Christmas, or write and let her know how hurtful I find her negligence? — NOT GIFTED IN FLORIDA DEAR NOT GIFTED: Your daughter may hold a master’s degree, but she’s not a mind-reader. I can’t think of a better way to communicate your feelings in a clear, coherent way than to put them in writing. Go ahead and write her a letter. But before mailing it, wait three or four days so you can reread and edit it if necessary.

ODDS AND ENDS Johnny Depp surprises London students dressed in pirate regalia LONDON (AP) — Hollywood star Johnny Depp took “show and tell” to a new level at a London school when he turned up in full pirate regalia after a fan wrote to him seeking help stage a “mutiny,” according to media reports. Beatrice Delap, 9, wrote to Captain Jack Sparrow, Depp’s character in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, asking for help with an uprising against teachers at Meridian Primary School in Greenwich, south-east London. “We are a bunch of budding young pirates and we were having a bit of trouble mutiny-ing against the teachers, and we’d love if you could come and help,” Delap wrote to Depp. Depp, who is in south-east London filming the fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie “On Stranger Tides,” gave the school 10 minutes notice on Wednesday that he was on his way. The school quickly called an assembly and Depp walked in to gasps from the students, according to People magazine. Depp, holding the letter, called Delap up to the front and hugged her but he dashed any thoughts of a rebellion. “Maybe we shouldn’t mutiny today because there are police outside monitoring me,” Depp, a father of two, was quoted as saying.

Woman flags down police: ‘Am I wanted?’ LOCKLAND, Ohio (AP) — Police in suburban Cincinnati arrested a woman


MY ANSWER after she flagged an officer down and asked if there were any warrants out for her arrest. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Friday that after Lockland police officer Dan Lyons informed 44-year-old Selma Elmore she did have an outstanding warrant, the woman ran off. The chase ended when Elmore pushed Lyons into a building, injuring his elbow. Other officers responding to a call for backup later apprehended the woman. Elmore, wanted for allegedly failing to pay a fine as a result of a drug conviction, now faces a charge of resisting arrest. Hamilton County Jail records did not list an attorney for Elmore.

Man wearing ‘Scream’ mask robs New York doughnut shop FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) — A man wearing a “Scream” thriller movie mask tried to hold up a doughnut shop on New York’s Long Island. Nassau County police say the thief walked into a Dunkin’ Donuts in Farmingdale just before midnight Tuesday brandishing a silver handgun and demanding money. An employee, washing trays, tells the New York Post that he turned the water on the bandit, hitting the mask. The thief, clad all in black, fled emptyhanded. Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS. Calls are confidential. In July, a bank robber dressed as “Star Wars” villain Darth Vader made off with an undetermined amount of cash at a Chase bank branch on Long Island.

Children understand God, too Q: I know you’ve said we ought to start teaching our children about God at a very young age, but our son is only 3 and can’t seem to stay still for more than a couple of minutes. It doesn’t seem practical to teach him about much of anything, let alone God. -- Mrs. A.McL. A: You may not be able to teach your small son very much about God right now -- but you can teach him something, and that should be your goal. After all, you don’t stop feeding him healthy food just because he doesn’t understand very much about nutrition, do you? How should we teach our children about God? First, we should teach them simply and yet clearly. For example, teaching them to memorize a simple prayer of thanks they can say before meals will help them understand God’s care for them. Reading them a brief selection from a children’s Bible storybook will help them understand God’s love for us. And praying with them before they go to bed will help them realize that God is real, even if we can’t see Him. Then we should teach our children by our example. Will they see that God makes a difference in our lives -- in the way we treat others, in our honesty, in our speech, in the way we use our time and money, and so forth? Will they learn that our church is important to us? The Bible says, “The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him” (Proverbs 20:7).

Cowboys: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fresh startâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; begins today

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Unlike a playground game interrupted by a stray dog, NFL seasons rarely allow do-overs. The Dallas Cowboys may have stumbled into something close. Their season was on the verge of collapse when they left Cowboys Stadium at 0-2. But they return Sunday to play Tennessee feeling good about how things are going. They cleaned up some bad practice habits, then saw it lead to a dominant performance against then-undefeated Houston in a hostile road game. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve kept up that new routine and welcomed more guys into it as everyone is healthy for the first time all season. Nobody in the division has pulled away through it all, nor has anyone in the conference. And now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going into the softest part

of their schedule. Oh, one more thing. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won at least three straight games coming out of a bye in every season under coach Wade Phillips. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is a fresh start,â&#x20AC;? Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we play like we did against Houston we can win a lot of games in this league. That is what is going to motivate us to play well the rest of the season.â&#x20AC;? The Cowboys (1-2) play three of their next four games at home. None of those foes has a winning record, starting with the Titans (2-2). Besides, even Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher points out that Dallas wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly routed in its two losses. Both were decided late and the Cowboys made all sorts of mistakes in both. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get the best


October Specials

Cowboy team to date Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure,â&#x20AC;? Fisher said. Phillips, meanwhile, is offering similar praise of Tennessee, noting the Titans lost by only eight to a strong Pittsburgh team and by six last weekend, albeit at home against Denver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They could easily be 4-0,â&#x20AC;? Phillips said Tennessee has been in a cycle of win-lose, winlose. By that measure, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winning time. There are plenty of intriguing layers to this matchup, like Titans quarterback Vince Young trying to prove it was only a coincidence that both of his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s losses were against 3-4 defenses, like the Cowboys use. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the 16 sacks by the Tennessee defense, tied for the most in the NFL, against Tony Romo and a Cowboys offense thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allowed a leaguelow one sack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regardless of whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Romo or Johnny Unitas back there,â&#x20AC;? said defensive end Dave Ball, Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading sack man with 4 1/2, â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try to get that guy on the ground.â&#x20AC;? Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Titans running back Chris Johnson against a Dallas defense that had gone 22 games without allowing

a 100-yard rusher before giving up 101 to Houstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arian Foster. Johnson is coming off a meager 53 yards against Denver. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to have to pick up the pace if he expects to reach his goal of 2,500 yards this season. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll certainly be looking to prove a point to the Cowboys. They had a chance to draft him in 2008, and he wanted to play for them, but Dallas instead went with Felix Jones, a big-play threat who so far this season has only been a threat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh you think about that,â&#x20AC;? said Johnson, who went to Tennessee just two picks later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to go in the game and do better than that guy, any running back Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m playing I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m competing against. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a special situation playing against them and they picked him over me. ... Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be fun.â&#x20AC;? But will it be good, clean fun? The Broncos accused the Titans of â&#x20AC;&#x153;playing dirty after the snap.â&#x20AC;? Tennessee leads the NFL in overall penalties and in personal fouls â&#x20AC;&#x201D; nine, all on a defense whose coordinator, Chuck Cecil, was fined $40,000 this week for making an obscene gesture.

Peppers Continued from Page 1B

Panthers jersey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have absolutely no idea,â&#x20AC;? Peppers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know I have a large fan base down there. I also know that I have people that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily care for me too much, either. Which crowd shows up? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know.â&#x20AC;? Peppersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; return was circled the day the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; schedule was released in the spring. Few could have guessed it would come under these circumstances. Chicago (3-1) is coming off a brutal performance last week, falling 17-3 to the New York Giants with Jay Cutler sacked nine times in the first half before leaving with a concussion. Cutler remains sidelined, meaning 38-year-old Todd Collins will start against Carolina (0-4), which is in even worse shape. Letting Peppers leave in free agency was part of an offseason youth movement that gutted the roster. Now with star receiver Steve Smith sidelined with a sprained ankle, rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen will have few options leading the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lowestscoring team against the disruptive Peppers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That 0-4 record they

have doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really speak to how that team is playing,â&#x20AC;? Peppers insisted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know those guys. They still have the best running back tandem in the league. They still have a solid O-line. They still have No. 89 (Smith). They still have a solid defense.â&#x20AC;? But they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have Peppers, who collected a franchise record 81 sacks in an eight-year stint that ended with a prolonged and tense contract dispute. Peppers turned down a deal after the 2007 season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; during which he managed just 2½ sacks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that would have made him the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest-paid defensive player. The Panthers went against his wishes and used the franchise tag to keep him in 2009, then decided to cut him loose in the spring. Peppers took some fresh shots at his old team last week, saying he was upset general manager Marty Hurney and coach John Fox never told him personally they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to re-sign him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually spoken to either one of them,â&#x20AC;? Peppers said. Mix that fresh angle with surly fans who have watched Carolina score five touchdowns in four games, and boos or cheers are possible for Peppers Sunday.

Braves hope to delay Coxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement

Childress says Favre report not a distraction

ATLANTA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; No matter how many injuries they face, no matter how hopeless the situation seems, the Atlanta Braves are determined to put off Bobby Coxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement as long as possible. Another player went down in Game 2 of the NL division series â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and a mighty important one at that. But the Braves shrugged off the loss of closer Billy Wagner and got down to figuring how they can win an NL division series with the San Francisco Giants that is improbably tied at one game apiece. Game 3 is Sunday afternoon before what should be a raucous sellout crowd at Turner Field, where the Braves put up the best home record in the majors during the regular season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a team all year that just rolls with

AP Photo

Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox plans to retire at the end of this season. the punches,â&#x20AC;? said ace Tim Hudson, who will start Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still have to go out there and play. Injuries are part of the game and adversity is part of the game. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not the most talented club, but I feel like we have the most heart and a lot of guts.â&#x20AC;? With his team getting home around 9 a.m. Atlanta time, Cox decided to skip the traditional

off-day workout and let his players get some extra rest. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably for the best. The way things have gone for the Braves, someone might have gotten hurt. Two key hitters, Chipper Jones and Martin Prado, are both out with season-ending injuries. So is starting pitcher Kris Medlen. Three other pitchers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jair Jurrjens, Takashi Saito and Eric

Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Flaherty â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were left off the division series roster because of various ailments. Now, the guy who saved 37 games during the regular season is likely to miss at least the rest of the division series. Wagner injured his left oblique on a fielding play in the 10th inning of Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dramatic 5-4 victory that evened the series. The Braves must decide if Wagner has a chance to come back in a week to pitch in the NL championship series â&#x20AC;&#x201D; should Atlanta even get that far. If so, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll likely keep him on the roster and use only 10 pitchers the rest of this series. If not, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be replaced by another pitcher, which would make the left-hander ineligible for the next round anyway. Wagner will be re-examined before Game 3.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress said he has talked with Brett Favre about an NFL investigation into allegations that he sent racy photos to a former game hostess while he played for the New York Jets. Childress said that a report on the website Deadspin and the subsequent news of a league investigation have not been a distraction for the team this week as it prepares to play the Jets on Monday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just talk about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out there and look it right in the eye and deal with it to the extent we can,â&#x20AC;? Childress said on Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect anybody else in this locker room,

except Brett Favre.â&#x20AC;? Childress said he knew nothing about the details of the Deadspin report and hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard from the league. He declined to speak specifically about his conversation with Favre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always speak about (reports); about everything,â&#x20AC;? Childress said. Favre was not made available for comment, and the team said he did not plan to speak on the matter Saturday. He declined comment during his regular news conference on Thursday. Deadspin posted a story that day which included several voicemails alleged to be sent by Favre to Jenn Sterger, who worked for the Jets at the time.

Cuba makes guayabera shirt its official garment

HAVANA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; When Fidel Castro suddenly decided to shed his trademark olive green military fatigues and don street clothes in public for the first time in 35 years, a white guayabera shirt over blue slacks is what he put on. A resolution from the Foreign Relations Ministry published into law Wednesday makes the guayabera Cubaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official formal dress garment and mandates that government officials wear them at state

functions. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s welcome news in a country known for its steamy summer weather. The law confirms the decades-old reputation of the cool, roomy cotton or linen shirts â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with four large pockets and pleats down the front, traditionally worn untucked â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as the islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most quintessential fashion choice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guayabera has been a part of the history of our country for a long time and constitutes one of the most authentic and

legitimate expressions of Cubanism,â&#x20AC;? the resolution said. According to the law, male officials are to wear white, long-sleeved guayaberas at state events; women can vary color and style. Nearly all Cuban officials already shun suits and sport jackets in the tropical heat, so the law isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to change much. The guayabera also is a fashion fixture in Mexico, parts of Florida and even as far away as the Philippines.

It is said to have originated in this country, though no one is sure exactly where or when. Cuban legend has it the shirt was born in the early 1700s in the central province of Sancti Spiritus, on the banks of the Yayabo River, where families of recent Spanish immigrants fashioned light work sheets out of linen and equipped them with pockets where they could stuff enough cigars to get them through long days in the fields.

Five years after triple crown, Rufus in high demand LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rufus is the most decorated bull terrier in the history of the breed, a celebrity ambassador and one of the busiest therapy dogs in the country. With his enduring popularity and hectic schedule of public appearances at age 10 (thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 70 in dog years), heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the Betty White of the dog world, although at 88, she still has a few years on Rufus. Rufus is a colored bull terrier with a head like an egg and a body like a torpedo, explained David Frei, director of communications for the Westminster Kennel Club. Owner Barbara Bishop of Holmdel, N.J., rejects words like ugly and weird, settling on different to describe Rufus. His sad look, funny eyes and big nose draw people in, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approachable. A lot of people might be afraid to approach Brad Pitt, but they would come to Adam Sandler. Anyone can pet Rufus. I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of his charisma. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about touching Rufus because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wash-andwear kind of guy. You can just love him,â&#x20AC;? she said. At hospitals or cancer centers like the Ronald McDonald House in New York City, â&#x20AC;&#x153;people think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stuffed. He just lays there buried under 20 kids. People canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe he is so used to it,â&#x20AC;? Bishop said. Rufus, whose registered name is Rocky Topâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sundance Kid, started his show career when he was 11 months old. He received dozens of best in show honors. But nothing prepared Bishop and her husband Tom for the end of 2005 and beginning of 2006. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the season Rufus and handler Kathy Kirk won the triple crown of U.S. dog shows: The National Dog Show Presented by Purina, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and the Morris & Essex Kennel Club show, which is held only once every five years. As reigning champ, Rufus will be on hand for the 2010 show on Oct. 7. He also won the Canadian championship, the Mexican championship, the world championship and the Championship of the Americas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a bull terrier to rise in the ranks in shows like that is unheard of. A bull terrier is a working class dog. We were quite shocked,â&#x20AC;? Barbara Bishop said. Rufusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; historic sweep came 87 years after a white bull terrier won at Westminster. The Bishops retired Rufus as a show dog, but he was too social to sit at home, so they took him for his canine good citizen test and his therapy dog test. He aced them both, of course, and now works for Therapy Dog International and Angel on a Leash, an organization founded by Frei. The same things that made Rufus a good show dog make him a good therapy dog and a good pet, Frei said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big, beautiful, burly dog that loves everybody,â&#x20AC;? he said. At Westminster and the National Dog Show, all finalists are near perfect specimens, exceeding the standards of the breed, Frei said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the judges turn to a dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charisma, presence and personality.

In the show ring, a dog creates a moment for himself, Frei said. In a therapy session, a good dog creates a moment for somebody else. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When he walks into the room, the energy changes, people look at him, they smile, they get up from bed and go over to hug him,â&#x20AC;? Frei said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His impact with children and seniors is in the moment and may make somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day at a time when they might not have very many good days.â&#x20AC;? The Bishops got Rufus when he was 10 weeks old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bull terriers make wonderful pets if you have a lot of patience and a sense of humor. They are into everything, they are very nosy, very mischievous. They can be their own worst enemy,â&#x20AC;? Barbara Bishop said. To her, Rufus was a clown and a perfect puppy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had a great attitude, a beautiful head, beautiful feet, his bite was good, he moved like a dream. He was a wonderfully made puppy.â&#x20AC;? It was like he was destined to be a show dog, she said. Rufus is also a New York Yankees fan (â&#x20AC;&#x153;because Mama is a Yankees fanâ&#x20AC;?). He has a limited wardrobe â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a generic Yankees uniform (if he had a number it would be shortstop Derek Jeterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s), a tuxedo and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cat in the Hatâ&#x20AC;? outfit he wears when he goes to library readings. Frei believes Rufusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; biggest impact has been on the breed itself. Rufus, who has been mistaken for a pit bull a time or two, belongs to one of those breeds sometimes singled out and banned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gentle loving breed and should not be discriminated against,â&#x20AC;? Frei said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great representative for Westminster and for dogs in general. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an incomparable representative for bull terriers and related breeds.â&#x20AC;? As an ambassador for the dog world, Rufus spends a lot of time on the go. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to Steve Griffith, general manager of Vizion Group Public Relations, to arrange Rufusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; schedule. The dog has a weekly date at a Holmdel senior citizen center and makes side trips to places like the Ronald McDonald House and Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a regular at Westminster and the National Dog Show, and he attends dozens of library readings, news conferences, personal appearances, parades and other events every year.

Business On the Street


Gap falls into online flap over its new logo

Billy Liggett Have news about your local business? E-mail us at

Back with Burkes and Belk


ou can say a lot of things about us. But you can’t say we don’t listen. The promotion of Jonathan Owens to sports editor left us without a business columnist, and we have had little luck in finding a local writer willing to take on the daunting task of On the Street. The purpose of the column is simple enough ... announce business deals, new stores and even toss in a rumor or two to keep in interesting. We were content to just keep On the Street blank until we found a replacement, but it seems every compliment or complaint we’ve received lately has included the question, “When’s the business column coming back?” So ... until we find a permanent solution, we’re going to tag team it. It could be me one week ... it could be Owens the next ... it could be a mix of all of us (staff writers included) one week. I wish I could say we were returning with a huge business rumor, but I’m sorry to announce that there is no news of a Chick-fil-a yet, and no, Target isn’t moving into the Riverbirch Shopping Center. Or is it? No, it’s not. Sorry. But ...

BURKES OUTLET OPENS NOV. 5 Burkes Outlet will open a new store in the Shoppes at Sanford — near the Walmart — on Nov. 5, the company announced this week. The new 20,250-squarefoot store will include, according to them, “a large selection of ladies, men’s and children’s apparel, handbags and accessories, a family footwear department and an expanded home selection which includes domestics.” When fully staffed, the store will employ approximately 15 associates and a store manager. I’m not familiar with Burkes, so I went to its website to discover it’s part of the Bealls family of stores. Growing up in Texas, I was very familiar with Bealls ... but alas, that wasn’t the same Bealls. The Bealls in Texas is different than the Floridabased operation, which runs Burkes. All very confusing, I know. The closest Burkes to Sanford before Nov. 5 is in Smithfield, if you want to check it out beforeharnd. The store here will hold a grand-opening celebration on Nov. 5. Promotions will include a $5 gift card

Central Carolina Community College welding student Jason Morris works on a SIP metal angle weld during a Continuing Education JobsNOW class at the college’s Harnett County Campus.


College’s JobsNOW program includes welding By KATHERINE McDONALD Special to The Herald

LILLINGTON — Metal fused to metal as Jason Morris, a welding student at Central Carolina Community College, welded an angle bend. After completing the job, he lifted his face shield and smiled with satisfaction. “I’ve learned a lot and I’ve enjoyed it,” he said. Morris, of Apex, had just completed his SIP (stay-inplace) welding certification through the JobsNOW welding class at CCCC’s Harnett County Campus. After three semesters and 300 hours of instruction and practice, he is now certified not only in SIP, but also in MIG, TIG, stick and gas welding. Morris, a welder for eight years, decided last year that he wanted to start his own business. Recently, he was able to move from being an employee to a small business owner, basing his success on the additional skills and certifications he gained in the welding program. “I’ve been staying busy, mainly equipment repair,” he said with another smile. “I also do some ornamental art work. There are robotic welders that some companies use, but they can’t replace a good welder. Whether you’re building a nuclear power plant or a bird house, there’s always something to do.”

Richard Modicue of Lillington smooths a piece of metal on a grinder prior to welding it in a Central Carolina Community College JobsNOW welding program at the college’s Harnett County Campus. The JobsNOW workforce development program is a statewide initiative of Gov. Bev Perdue in response to the recession. It trains unemployed or under-employed workers with in-demand job skills to get them back in the workforce quickly. It has also benefitted people wanting to start their own businesses, such as Morris. JobsNOW is a separate program from the other continuing education and curriculum workforce training programs the college offers. Josh Britton, owner of Britton’s Welding, in Lillington, is the instructor for the course. Richard Maxon, trans-

portation technician for the N.C. Department of Transportation’s Division of Highways Materials and Tests Unit, did the SIP certificate testing. “Having a certification says a lot to an employer,” said Britton. “Graduates of this program can most definitely find jobs, from metal fabrication to equipment repairs.” Welding student Richard Modicue, of Lillington, worked carefully with his torch. The JobsNOW program, in conjunction with other courses he has taken, has given him great hope for the future.

NEW YORK (AP) — Gap is taking a lot of flak online for stealthily swapping out its decades-old white-on-navy blue logo. Fans are puzzled, even irritated, and an expert is calling the way Gap Inc. has handled the switch “pretty stupid.” But the iconic chain still plans to add the new logo — a white background with black letters and a little blue box — to its stores and advertising next month. A spokeswoman said Friday that Gap will unveil plans within weeks for customers to help with the new logo, which appeared on Gap’s website Monday. “We love our version, but we’d like to ... see other ideas,” the company was telling fans by Wednesday on Facebook — where it’s still using the old logo, the blue square with white capital letters. It’s not clear what kind of help Gap has in mind — making changes to the new design, creating an entirely new logo or contributing to other parts of Gap’s branding. The company hasn’t touched the looks of its other brands — Old Navy, Banana Republic, Piperlime and Athleta. The new design was meant to show how the Gap chain has evolved from its long-standing, even preppy image. It’s meant to complement Gap’s sleeker new designs, new fits for black pants and khakis and more modern feel, said spokeswoman Louise Callagy. “We want our customers to sit up and take notice of all of this work and view us differently,” she said. Well, they noticed. Critiques of the new logo were buzzing on Facebook, Twitter and tech blogs late this week. The new logo, which Callagy said the San Francisco-based company wanted to put out slowly and well before the holidays, retains hints of the old one. But the blue square has shrunk and wandered to an upper corner, and it’s dominated by black letters in Helvetica type. “I don’t see any reason to change something that works. ’New Coke’ anyone?” said one Facebook user, referring to CocaCola Co.’s famous missteps when it attempted to make a new version of its top-selling drink. Another Facebook member wondered: “Coca-Cola and Ford

RV industry’s rebound is bellwether

e continue to hear more good economic news this week. After enduring the worst three years in industry history, RV dealerships across North Carolina are seeing a significant increase in sales, some as much as double digits, according to an NBC report. A dealer near Charlotte said his sales had jumped over last year. “We have sold a lot more this year,” said Richie Keller. “We’re up by about 49 percent. People are just tired of not being

able to go on vacation and enjoy the outdoors,” says Keller. But what analysts find encouraging is the industry’s record at predicting good and bad times. The RV industry, which began to decline about a year before the rest of the economy, is consider

a bellwether industry as far the economy is concerned. “The RV industry is a great leading indicator for the overall health of the economy,” says Kathryn I. Thompson, founder of Thompson Research Group in Nashville, Tenn. On Sept. 28, Thor, the largest U.S. maker of recreational vehicles, reported a 51 percent jump in last quarter’s sales from a year ago. Profit rose 64 percent, with

BELK TO UNVEIL NEW EXTERIOR STORE SIGNAGE Belk will unveil its new logo on the exterior of its flagship store at Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh on Tuesday. Go to to see the logo that will later appear at all stores, including the one in Sanford. The 122-yearold companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s logo, I think, will please more people than the new GAP logo (story on this page if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not reading online), and it includes the tagline, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Modern.

While we will continue to meet the needs of our traditional and classic customers, we are changing our brand and expanding our assortments to attract new customers who are looking for modern, updated brands and styles.

net income exceeding by 16 percent the estimates of analysts surveyed by Bloomberg. The recession has taken its toll on the industry. In March 2009, two of the largest RV makers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Monaco Coach and Fleetwood Enterprises â&#x20AC;&#x201D; filed for bankruptcy protection. A fact of life in almost every industry in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy is the potential to lose your business. Think about the shrinking number of competitors in areas as diverse as banking, software, and construction materials. Research says the key to survival is knowing whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in your industry before your competition does. Most business owners know it can happen to them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; although some realize it too late. George Day, professor of marketing at the Wharton School of Business describes two scenarios: First, a boom-and-bust cycle collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Human Resources Development program and his welding certificates through the Continuing Education Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s JobsNOW progam. He is now enrolled in Human Services Technology classes at the college, looking forward

that afflicts hot markets or highly cyclical businesses. A glut of competitors jump into a market during boom times, but many of them fail when growth slows. (Think about how many mortgage brokers there were only a few years ago.) The second scenario involves mature industries that have enjoyed years of protected prosperity as a result of, for example, local regulations or import barriers. (Think about the tobacco industry, Polaroid cameras or personal computers.) Deregulation, globalization, or technology can pull the rug out from under them. Professor Day explains how adaptive survivors, like Dell Computer, successfully adjust their businesses in the midst of a bust, or how aggressive amalgamators, such as Arrow Electronics, cut costs and acquire smaller rivals in order to remain standing after a seismic shift. The fact remains that many companies,

large and small, will get squeezed out during a consolidation. Although it is enormously difficult for business owners to come to terms with the grim news, the sooner they do so, the better. And, as Day points out, all is not necessarily lost: with the right timing, also-rans can make a profitable exit from an industry. We have seen a few local businesses close their doors in recent months. Locally, we were sad to see a great small restaurant, Grahams CafĂŠ, close this past week after a tough year. We may see other local merchants close even while still other businesses are having unusually strong sales. As we have pointed out in this column many times before, business owners are risk takers. Please show your support for our local merchants by shopping locally â&#x20AC;Ś and tell them how much you appreciate their willingness to keep going through the tough times.

achieved, he added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try, you never know.â&#x20AC;? Bill Tyson, CCCC Harnett County provost, said he enjoys hearing these kinds of success stories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our programs are here to serve the community,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The JobsNOW initiative was a good addition to all the workforce development and educational opportunities we offer. It has enabled more people to upgrade their job skills and return to the workforce or start their own businesses. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success.â&#x20AC;?

have had the same logo for much longer than 20 years, and they manage to keep the brand current. Why didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you try that as well??â&#x20AC;? Callagy said the company was surprised but pleased by the spirited response, and it intentionally launched the design without fanfare, though it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan all along for the fan-participation element. The new logo represents a change in personality from one that was distinctive and familiar, said Tony Spaeth, president of Identityworks, a consulting firm in Rye, N.Y. Switching the letters from all capitals makes the name less of a mystery â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something that draws shoppers in, he said. Now, people will view â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Gapâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; more as a simple word, not anything to wonder about, and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be curious what the name means. (In fact, it refers to the generation gap that existed in 1969, when the company was founded, Callagy said.) Spaeth also said Helvetica is something of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;logo cliche,â&#x20AC;? used by older, less modern brands such as H&R Block Inc. and the New York Stock Exchange. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the typeface of New York Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transit system. Companies unveiling new logos should tell consumers what to expect before putting a design into circulation, Spaeth said. And they should explain their reasons for such a change, which can be a major turning point for a company. Not only did Gap miss an important chance, it now must deal with negative publicity, he said.



When Investing, Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Stop at U.S. Border In less than two weeks, United Nations Day will be celebrated. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an occasion to highlight and reďŹ&#x201A;ect on the work of the United Nations, whose mission is to promote understanding and cooperation among the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s countries. Of course, in an era of instantaneous communications and speedy global travel, we are all connected much more closely than ever before. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly true in the ďŹ nancial markets, too, because as an investor, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a world full of opportunities. Many people, however, still think the U.S. totally dominates the investment scene. But the fact is that U.S. stock markets make up less than half of the total global stock market value, according to the Census Bureau. And that should come as no surprise to you when you consider many of the products you use on a daily basis, from the Hyundai (South Korea) you drove to work to the Nestle Crunch bar (parent company in Switzerland) you snacked on at lunch to the Sony television (Japan) you watch at night. Not only are many strong companies based in the developed countries, but some emerging markets â&#x20AC;&#x201D; countries such as China, India, Brazil and Mexico that are characterized by younger, less mature economies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are growing rapidly, which may produce good investment opportunities. Keep in mind, though, that emerging markets do involve investment risks different

from those of more developed countries. Securities may be less liquid and more volatile because economic structures are generally less diverse and mature. And by investing internationally, you can gain another key beneďŹ t â&#x20AC;&#x201D; improved diversiďŹ cation. If you only invested domestically, and a downturn hits us, your portfolio will likely take a hit. But, at any given time, international markets may perform quite differently than the U.S. market. Consequently, if you expanded your investment horizon beyond U.S. borders, your foreign investments could be doing relatively well, even if your American investments were lagging. Keep in mind, though, that diversiďŹ cation, by itself, cannot guarantee proďŹ ts or protect against loss, though it may be able to help reduce the effects of volatility. While you can gain some beneďŹ ts by investing internationally, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also need to consider the risks, such as political risk. For example, new governments can come in, nationalize companies, drastically change policies

or rules affecting commerce, or take other actions that could have a big effect on your investments. You might also encounter currency risk â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that is, changes in the value of the U.S. dollar, relative to foreign currencies, could negatively affect the value of your investments. Another factor to consider is the difference in accounting standards between the U.S. and other countries, a difference that can result in difďŹ culty analyzing the true value and performance of foreign investments. You can enhance your portfolioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diversiďŹ cation without investing a lot abroad. If you are considering international investments you may want to limit the foreign exposure to no more than 20 to 25 percent of your overall portfolio, with the exact amount depending on your individual risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term goals. Also, given the more complex issues involved in international investing, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to consult with a professional ďŹ nancial advisor before taking action. But once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done your â&#x20AC;&#x153;due diligence,â&#x20AC;? donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to launch your voyage to the world of international investing. You might like what you see on your journey. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

Burned out and dried up


he rapid pace of modern life often leads to mental, physical, and spiritual exhaustion. The term commonly used to describe this condition is burnout. Though burnout can happen to persons in other vocations, it is especially a danger to those who are involved in Christian ministry. As you give yourself to others, you expend emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual energy that makes heavy drafts on your resources. Unless replenished, these resources will become depleted. Constantly giving out to others, without ever taking in, can lead to spiritual bankruptcy, and often does. Burnout is caused by burning the candle on both ends. This produces a lot of heat and light for a time, but then it is consumed and the light and energy are gone. Some of the great Christian leaders of history have not been strangers to this driedout condition. The Old Testament character Job for example, seemed on the edge of burnout when he lamented: “I have no peace, no quietness; I have no rest, but only turmoil” (Job 3:26). Dr. J.B. Phillips, who is well known for his magnificent translation of

Pastor J. Scott Yow Jr. and members of Beaver Creek Baptist Church prepare for the ribbon cutting ceremony for the church’s new 9.000square-food sanctuary. The congregation gathered last Sunday to celebrate the new worship center, which has been an ongoing effort since 2007.

Word of God literally in concrete at new Beaver Creek sanctuary By JENNIFER GENTILE

CAMERON — The new sanctuary at Beaver Creek Baptist Church rests literally on the word of God. The scriptural principles of the church, which is located at 2280 Nicholson Road, are now built into its physical foundation. Before concrete was poured into the base of the 9,000 square-foot sanctuary, Bibles were placed purposefully in the corners. “It’s symbolic of what we must do in our teaching and ministry,” said Pastor J. Scott Yow Jr. “It’s a continual reminder to us as a church that if what we do isn’t based in the word of God, it’s not worth doing.” The Beaver Creek congregation gathered last Sunday to

The new Beaver Creek Baptist Church sanctuary can accommodate up to 400 people, double the capacity of the old church. celebrate the dedication of the new worship center, which has been an ongoing effort since 2007. The addition of new families has been a blessing for

Beaver Creek in recent years, Yow said, but the church was running out of room to accommodate them. “We simply were too crowded in the old sanctuary,” Yow said, “We knew if we were going to continue to grow, we had to expand.” The new sanctuary can accommodate up to 400 parishioners — double the capacity of the old space. A handful of those in attendance Sunday, including parishioner Ben McNeil, could remember when the original church was composed of only a few dozen members. “There were 36 of us —men and women,” McNeil recalled. “We were really close; we prayed a lot to God to seek His guidance.” The church was established with the completion of

Much of the congregation came from the local farming community, and funds for the sanctuary were raised partially from the sale of items like sweet potatoes. “They set an example for our current congregation,” Yow said, “as far as if you want something, you’ll work for it.” The project suffered a setback when lumber needed for framing was stolen during the construction. “We had it brought in Friday afternoon,” McNeil said. “We came in Saturday morning and there was no lumber out there — only tire tracks.” With help and support from nearby Wayside Presbyterian, the new church bounced back from the disappointment.

She’s excited to see the chair because of its ability to empower women by raising awareness on the importance of early detection. A North Carolina college student created the Button Chair in 1998 as a tribute to the women in our state who have battled breast cancer. The chair features thousands of buttons, each belonging to a victim or survivor of the disease. The exhibit’s most unique aspect is an interactive video highlighting the stories of five North Carolina women who have survived the disease. At least one famous local North Carolinian has a button on the chair. A button

Dentists treat Helping Hands patients


he North Carolina Dental Society sponsors several programs that address the oral health needs of the citizens of our state, such as the North Carolina Missions of Mercy, Donated Dental services and Give Kids a Smile. For several years dentists in Lee County have been treating patients referred by the Helping Hand Clinic. The approach used here allows patients to be seen in private offices during regular office hours. This avoids the expense of a separate dental clinic. Dr. Alec Parker, Executive Director of the North Carolina Dental Society, and Chris Garrett of the North Carolina Association of Free Clinics, met with Marilyn Green, exec-

utive director of the Helping Hands Clinic, and Dr. David Fisher, President of the Lee County Dental Society, to lend support to the local effort and discuss ways to expand services in Lee County. It is hoped that this meeting will lead to partnerships with other programs in North Carolina. One goal would be to have one of the Missions of Mercy clinics come to Lee County. This is a portable free dental program that provides dental services to those in financial need with few or no options for dental care. These clinics are generally held in larger metropolitan areas. The possibility of a smaller version in counties such as Lee is being explored. — Submitted article

Center offers natural birthing methods The Durham Herald-Sun

CHAPEL HILL (AP) — Instead of selecting the old painkilling stand-bys of Demerol and epidurals, some pregnant women today are choosing to forego medications and opting instead for a natural childbirth. The Women’s Birth and Wellness Center in Chapel Hill is attracting some pregnant women because of its stance in advocating a woman’s choice of how she wants to give birth. “Most women who come here are dedicated to have an unmedicated childbirth,” said Rachel VanBree, a nurse practitioner at the center. The freestanding birthing facility — which is not attached to a hospital — offers an added choice of a comfortable middle ground between hospital and home to healthy, low-risk moms to be. “They don’t want (medication) to be offered to them. They want to have the freedom to move around and have more choices to birth their babies in comfort,” VanBree said. For Lacey Hendrix, a new mom, a natural childbirth experience was exactly what she wanted. “They are big on natural remedies; my water birth went very smooth with no complications,” said Hendrix, who had just given birth only a few hours earlier. Hendrix said it is very

important to have a relationship with a health care provider to develop a trust. She decided to switch from her OB/GYN doctor to the Women’s Birth & Wellness Center because she “was not satisfied with the care” she was receiving, noting her doctor did not provide the attentiveness she needed. “My OB didn’t ask me questions, like, ’How are you doing?’ ’Are you taking your pre-natal vitamins?’” Hendrix said. The usual amount of time spent for appointments includes one hour for newly pregnant women and 30 minutes thereafter. During this time, midwives can provide educational materials on childbirth classes and listen to concerns and fears of the patient. “Here, nothing was rushed. Every one of my appointments was over 30 minutes or longer — with one-on-one time with a midwife,” said Hendrix. She said she was pleased with the care she received at the center during her pregnancy and during the birth of her daughter, Layla Kashmir, who weighed in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces. The center is open to as many family members and friends as the mom feels she needs, and the mom can wear her own clothes and eat whenever she feels hungry. For most women, giving birth is not easy and it’s important being in a

supportive environment. “They set the mood with candles, and I was surprised of their handson massage they gave to me to help me through the contractions,” said Hendrix. “We want to get the word out. This is not something new; (natural childbirth has) been around a long time,” said VanBree. The center offers deep birthing tubs as well as showers to help women cope with the discomfort of labor. “I had my first baby here,” said VanBree, who is expecting her second child in November. “They encourage you to get into more positions to cope with the discomfort of labor.” The center collaborates with UNC Hospitals physicians group. Their midwives have privileges at the hospital and can do quick transfers for women whose labor has slowed down or stalled. Midwives can also manage the baby there. “We strive really hard to give great service here,” said Maureen Darcey, Wellness Center director, who has been delivering babies for

more than 30 years. “It’s cheaper to have a baby here. This is a cost-effective, quality way of having a baby.” The center, which delivers about 400 babies a year, also offers complete primary health care for women. “We don’t just see pregnant women here. It’s not just about the births,” said Darcey. The center handles annual examinations and can order mammograms, bone density screenings and provide menopause care as well as first checkup for teenagers. “We serve women throughout life,” said Darcey. VanBree said the center attracts women not only from the Triangle but some who are an hour and a half away and sometimes farther — even as far away as Wilmington, New Bern and Greensboro. “We help them to feel like they are getting to know us and we are getting to know them,” said Nancy Albrecht, a registered nurse at the center. Albrecht said that at the center, about 50 percent of moms choose

the bed as their birth choice and 25 percent choose a birthing tub, while others choose a combination of using a birthing ball, standing, kneeling, or the shower or a birthing chair. Albrecht said the vision for the center in 2011 is to campaign to build a new facility to expand services.

from the Olympic jacket of Kay Yow, North Carolina State Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iconic womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball coach who died after a battle with the disease in 2009, is included in the exhibit. Other unique pieces of the exhibit include a red button with a gold star from a World War II uniform and a one-third carat diamond from a woman who wanted to honor all women for their strength, diversity and perseverance. There are buttons from husbands that were received with notes of love in honor of their deceased wives. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even a fluffy pink lucky rabbitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foot that one woman took into her mastectomy surgery. The display includes interactive elements,

highlighted by the glass enclosed Button Chair and four hands-on, educational kiosks. Two of the kiosks contain touch-screen monitors with information about breast cancer, resources and information concerning mammograms. The other kiosks include information on mammograms and breast exams and details about the chair itself, including stories behind specific buttons. Beads depicting lump sizes detectable by self-exam as well as those detected through mammography are featured. Also included is a mammogram X-ray providing visitors the opportunity to view a cancerous mass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very excited the chair will be here at CCH to help teach and empower women,â&#x20AC;? Sandlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important for women to go through their annual screenings

because early detection is such a big factor in fighting breast cancer.â&#x20AC;? The hospital has also found a way for women in Lee County to remember their friends and family while the Button Chair is here. During the event, a framing mat will be available for people to write messages of inspiration and remembrance for those whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve survived breast cancer and those whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost the battle. Once the messages are finished, the mat will be assembled with a pink awareness ribbon, framed and hung in the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center at the hospital. Sandlin says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The exhibit is so moving that we knew our local community would want to contribute their own messages. This way, part of the exhibit will stay right here in town for everyone to see.â&#x20AC;? Kathy Higgins,

BCBSNC Foundation president, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our hope is that through the Button Chair, women across North Carolina will learn more about breast cancer and the importance of mammograms and breast cancer screenings.â&#x20AC;? The chair will be available for free public viewing weekdays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. at the hospital.

our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of lifeâ&#x20AC;? (2 Corinthians 1:8). Dr. Edward A. McDowell, an outstanding New Testament scholar, and who was one of my favorite professors at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary during the 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, struggled throughout life with depression. Are you discouraged? If so, cheer up! You have a lot of company. God knows your need, loves you, and is both able and willing to help you. Herbert Booth composed a song of faith for the difficult times, its last verse claiming a triumphant faith:

Continued from Page 1C

the New Testament, and who also wrote several popular books on Christian apologetics, had to constantly struggle with depression. His biographer tells us that he never lost his faith in God, but that he never ceased to struggle against mental pain. General William Booth, founder of The Salvation Army, came to a point of feeling drained and dried out more than once. He is remembered as a tower of strength, a man of unbounded energy, unrelenting in his warfare against sin. But, behind the scenes, we see a glimpse of his humanity. The apostle Paul, undoubtedly the greatest missionary who ever lived, and who wrote a significant portion of the New Testament, acknowledged that he and his companions were â&#x20AC;&#x153;under great pressure, far beyond

6C / Sunday, October 10, 2010 / The Sanford Herald Past Clubs News Kiwanis Club of Lee County President Matt Jackson presided over the weekly meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Lee County held at Davisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steaks on Sept. 29. The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag was led by Christi Spell and the invocation was given by Robert Gray. The project fund tickets were sold by Thad Morgan and Nancy Watkins was the winner. Happy Dollars came from Watkins and Karen Hall. Dargan Moore was the guest of Dal Langston. Happy birthday wishes went to Lyn Hankins. Langston announced that the dictionaries for the third graders in Lee County had been ordered. The annual Charter Night was set for Oct. 25. David Caplan reminded the membership of the Character Counts orientation at Bullock Elementary School on Oct. 1. President Jackson introduced the George Hilliard, the Kiwanis lieutenant governor and the speaker for the day. Before installing the Kiwanis of Lee officers for the coming year, 20102011, Hilliard told of the upcoming projects for the Carolinas District and the goals for the division. The officers installed were: President Charles Morris; President-Elect Drew Lucas; Vice-President Martha Lucas; Secretary Janet Tucker and Treasurer Kay Patterson.

Lee County Forestry Association The Lee County Forestry Association met Sept. 27 at Tonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seafood for their quarterly meeting. President Charles Oldham introduced Stephanie Romelczyk, Lee County Extension horticulture agent, who in turn introduced the guest speaker, Dr. Dennis Hazel, extension forestry specialist at N.C. State University. Dr. Hazelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s topic was â&#x20AC;&#x153;History of Land Management in the Piedmont.â&#x20AC;? He noted that the land dictates why certain things are done in forest lands. The native Americans numbered 3,000 in North Carolina and they were called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Woodland Indians.â&#x20AC;? They cleared land for crops and then did a burn, which was good for the soil and good for wildlife. They moved the crops around and therefore had better crops each year. Lightening also helped with the burning process. Savannahs and grass prairies were wide opened spreads. Europeans arrived, natives died out and the loss of burning caused tree canopies to cover the trees. Later

the forest were cleared again for the crops. The Piedmont was settled in 1850 and following the Civil War, there was much abandoned land. Cotton became the principal crop and pine covered much of the land. Soblolly pines which means â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wet feetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reseeded rapidly. In the 1950s to 60s, the Soil Bank program was established. Today, nearly 80 percent of forestland is owned by individuals. There are many North Carolina absentee owners. There are many goods and services from the forest: Tourism, air and water purification, wildlife reserves and recreation. Forest and land management helps the farmer to generate income and alternate produce. Clear cutting forest land was also discussed. It was announced a workshop on â&#x20AC;&#x153;How to sell Timberâ&#x20AC;? will be offered at the Extension in October. The new office elected were President Mark Luellen; Secretary Charles Oldham and Treasurer Bud Taylor. Betty Lawrence was recognized for serving as secretary of the association for 15 years. The next meeting will be held in January 2011.

Sanford Rotary Club President Tony Lett called the meeting to order and called on Bud Taylor to lead the Rotary Prayer. Tom Spence led the singing of â&#x20AC;&#x153;God Bless America.â&#x20AC;? The club sang â&#x20AC;&#x153;Happy Birthdayâ&#x20AC;? to Jeff Hockaday, who was the only member celebrating a birthday this month. John Ramsperger, Ed Terry, Michele Bullard and Larry Aiken, were recognized as visiting Rotarians from the Jonesboro club. David Nestor reported a make-up at Jonesboro last week. 50/50 raffle of $15 was won by Tommy Rosser.

feed sacks in order to pick out the colors and prints we liked best. After the grain for the chickens was poured in metal barrels, Mama washed the sacks in the ringer washing machine and starched the fabrics. Then she transformed the material into frocks, blouses, shorts, pajamas, what-have-you. I developed a flair for the dramatic in my sense of style and approach to fashion, and Mama indulged me. In high school I used my work-in-tobacco earnings to buy a â&#x20AC;&#x153;citifiedâ&#x20AC;? pair of shoes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something rare like a lime green/royal blue combination. Then Mama and I went to the fabric store in Sanford where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d pick out matching green and blue material. I would draw a dress design, and Mama would create a pattern and then whip up the outfit on her sewing machine. Sometimes she even made me a matching pocketbook from the leftover fabric. One day Mama and I bought an exotic print with red fruit all over it, and we shopped all over town looking for

matching apple buttons to go down the back. In the middle of the sewing project Carolyn walked in and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where did you get that wild strawberry dress?â&#x20AC;? With eyes as big as saucers Mama and I took a closer look at the fabric to discover that, sure enough, the fruits were strawberries and not apples. We went for the fruit bowl effect and used the apple buttons anyway. (I still have that dress and matching pocketbook!) While sewing clothes was necessary to make ends meet on the family farm, women used leftover material to create patterns for colorful quilts. Mama and Aunt Gladys, who lived with Grandpa across the road, and some of the ladies from the church and community would gather often for quilting bees where they helped each other finish their masterpieces. When a dress had â&#x20AC;&#x153;slam-damn wore outâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t no goodâ&#x20AC;? for passing on as hand-me- downs its scraps became pieces in Mamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quilts. Many a tear was shed when we country girls snuggled up in a quilt rich with precious memories of a one-time Easter dress or a former favorite blouse

discarded because growing breasts had burst through the seams. It was Aunt Gladysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; finest hour at wedding showers when the bride opened her special gift of a one-of-a-kind quilt â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a precious present reserved for only the closest of kin and dearest of heart. Gladys often told me she had a quilt with my name on it but I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it until I agreed to get hitched. I reckon someone else is sleeping under that quilt somewhere. After Aunt Gladys died her heirs treasured finding boxes of quilt scraps earmarked for future projects. Her granddaughter Diane Lett Thomas used the skills she had learned from Gladys and made good use of the beautiful designs. She told me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went through and took out all the red and navy gingham squares she had cut out. I pieced them together and made a quilt top. It was as if Granny had cut them out to sew because the proportions and number of squares came out perfectly.â&#x20AC;? After I had left home Mama made me a wedding ring quilt, sonamed because it featured circles intertwined with each other. Today I often see quilts featured

Where do you go when you

as examples of artistic expression, whether draped on beds or hanging on walls, but none will ever be as valuable as the wedding ring quilt on my own bed. It will always remind me of the woman who loved me enough to put her lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blood into a gift that will last forever. Whether it was harvesting fruits and vegetables or using fabrics featuring strawberries, a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work on the farm was never done. Back then men crowed the loudest but women ruled the roost when it came to taking care of their biddies and providing them with fine feathers, comfortable nests, and mighty fine food. AlexSandra Lett is writing a book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going Crazyâ&#x20AC;ŚGetting Sane.â&#x20AC;?

While there were moments of struggle, no major mishaps occurred during the building of the new sanctuary. Yow described the building as having a fan-shaped design with three rows of pews, an expansive platform for the pulpit and choir loft, and stained glass windows. The pastor estimated the total value of the project at $1.5 million. Some of the work was donated, he said, and the congregation helped provide the needed funds through their offerings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal was to pay as we went,â&#x20AC;? Yow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to go in with half paid off before we even cut the ribbon.â&#x20AC;? The old sanctuary will now be used for educational purposes, the pastor said. The churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s membership is more diverse than ever, he said, and he would like to see the trend continue. One of Beaver Creekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stated missions is to serve as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;spiritual hospitalâ&#x20AC;? for those hurting

physically and emotionally. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ministries include a cancer support group and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Senior Saintsâ&#x20AC;? program to offer encouragement and support to the elderly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is going to provide us a bigger tool to reach more people,â&#x20AC;? Yow said. In McNeilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion, the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new worship space is a gift from a higher power. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not through with the church yet,â&#x20AC;? McNeil said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of good things are going to happen for Beaver Creek.â&#x20AC;?
