‘Head of Class’ gets statewide attention THE PROGRAM The Head of Class Project will reward faculty and staff of the year’s highest performing elementary school with $50,000. To determine the highest performing school, the foundation has developed a formula based on the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction’s achievement measures.



Nancy Ray of Clayton assembles hot dogs at the Glen Smith booth at the N.C. state fairgrounds for hungry vendors and people setting up for the North Carolina State Fair Monday.

FRY-DAYS BEGIN THURSDAY Fried foods are always popular, but there’s much more that makes the State Fair ‘great’ From staff reports


RALEIGH — Over the past few years, the N.C. State Fair has promoted its offerings with a peppy slogan.

SANFORD — The Head of Class Project is rapidly garnering statewide attention thanks to a few recent presentations by Superintendent of Lee County Schools Jeff Moss. State Superintendent June Atkinson invited Moss and Charlotte/Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Peter Gorman to discuss teacher Moss performance pay plans at the Superintendent’s Quarterly Meeting in September. “I think it’s a tremendous benefit for Lee County,” Moss said. “Any time the state superintendent is promoting what you’re doing locally to the other districts is obviously a feather in our cap.” The Department of Public Instruction is in the process of

SANFORD—To Temple Theatre vocalist Peggy Taphorn, being a diva is about having charisma. “It implies some skill involved,” said Taphorn, who performs at the Temple and is also its artistic director. “It’s just the attitude of being able to hold a crowd’s attention and sell a song.” Certain names tend to dominate any discussion of divas in music history: Aretha

Franklin, Billie Holiday, Patsy Cline and Ella Fitzgerald to name a few. Local talent, including Taphorn, will honor a plethora of powerful female performers during a Divas Candlelight Concert on Friday and Saturday. First Presbyterian Church will host the two evenings of eclectic entertainment — featuring the music of Tina Turner, Reba McEntire and everyone in between.

A survey about effective communication methods for Lee County Schools and the Board of Education is now available online. Compiled by the Board of Education’s ad hoc committee on communications, the survey aims to provide insight into how the district and the board communicate with parents and the public, and how that communication could be improved. A link to the online survey can be found at lee.schoolfusion. us. A paper survey was also sent home with students for parents. The survey will close at 5 p.m. Thursday. The results will be presented at an upcoming board meeting.

GOOD MORNING Pet of the Week Carolina Animal Rescue and Adoption

Simka Simka is a one-year-old male chocolate lab. Labs, as we all know, are very intelligent dogs — perceptive, quick to catch on to whatever it is we want them to do.

You’ll be hard pressed to find a better dog/companion/friend for life. Please stop by and meet this handsome boy and see if there’s the special feeling you get when you know it’s “right.” Simka is heartworm negative, current on vaccines and preventatives, micro-chipped and neutered.

Almanac Today is Wednesday, Oct. 13, the 286th day of 2010. There are 79 days left in the year. This day in history: On Oct. 13, 1960, the Pittsburgh Pirates won the World Series, defeating the New York Yankees in Game 7, 10-9, with a home run hit by Bill Mazeroski. In A.D. 54, Roman Emperor Claudius I died, poisoned apparently at the behest of his wife, Agrippina (ag-rih-PEE’-nuh). In 1775, the United States Navy had its origins as the Continental Congress ordered the construction of a naval fleet. In 1792, the cornerstone of the executive mansion, later known as the White House, was laid during a ceremony in the District of Columbia. In 1843, the Jewish organization B’nai B’rith (buh-NAY’ brith) was founded in New York City. In 1858, the sixth debate between senatorial candidates Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas took place in Quicy, Ill. In 1943, Italy declared war on Germany, its one-time Axis partner. In 1944, American troops entered Aachen, Germany, during World War II. In 1960, Richard M. Nixon and John F. Kennedy participated in the third televised debate of their presidential campaign. (Nixon was in Los Angeles; Kennedy was in New York.) In 1990, Le Duc Tho, co-founder of the Vietnamese Communist Party, died in Hanoi a day before his 79th birthday.

NRA endorses Democrat in District 51 race

SANFORD — N.C. Rep. Jimmy Love, D-Lee, is in the midst of a close battle for reelection this fall, but he has at least one major conservative organization on his side. The National Rifle Association of America, better known as the NRA, endorsed Love last week, grading the longterm lawmaker with an “A� for advocating for gun owners. “Your exemplary record of past service in the North Carolina House of Representatives clearly illustrates your commitment to protecting the rights of law-abiding firearm owners and sportsmen,� wrote NRA state liasion Anthony Roulette in a March 5 letter to Love. Love’s campaign faxed the letter to The Herald office Tuesday. He faces Sanford Republican Mike Stone for the District 51 seat in November. — Billy Ball


Drug agents make a pair of arrests

SANFORD — Lee County and Sanford agents made a pair of drug busts after executing search warrants last week. Investigators said they charged Dale Edward Thomas, 56, of 3000 Khalif Court in Sanford, after searching his residence Thursday and finding the prescription painkiller OxyContin that he was allegedly planning to distribute.

Thomas is charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver a schedule II controlled substance, maintaining a dwelling to sell drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. Agents seized another local, 32-year-old Andrea Lanette Thomas, after finding marijuana in her residence at 382 Thomas Road in Sanford Saturday. Andrea Thomas, of no relation to Dale Thomas, is charged with possession of marijuana, maintaining a dwelling to store drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. Andrea Thomas was being held under $1,500 secured bond in Lee County Jail; Dale Thomas was released under a $20,000 bond. — Billy Ball


COLTS DASH van route starts Monday SANFORD — The County of Lee Transit System (COLTS) will kick-off its new COLTS DASH van route on Monday. The COLTS vehicle will be equipped with a wheel chair lift to accommodate two wheelchairs. The DASH route will have eight designated stops throughout Sanford, which will run six times per day Monday through Friday at each stop. Each stop will have a “COLTS STOPS HERE� sign posted at the location. — from staff reports

Board won’t elaborate on complaints By ALEXA MILAN

SANFORD — Tuesday’s regular Board of Education meeting included everything from the first recipient of the Clean Schools Award to a public comment regarding possible misconduct in school athletics departments. At the start of the meeting, a parent asked the board members to clarify their recommendations to him about complaints he made to them in August. The parent said he wanted to further discuss some issues he had learned about related to student athletes, and requested records from their August meeting. Board Chairman Shawn Williams said the board could not elaborate on his comments because the meeting at which the issues were discussed was held in closed session.

“This board is not at liberty to discuss something that was in closed session, but we have responded in writing,� Williams said. The board meeting also included a presentation from Abby Cameron, community services coordinator for the Lee and Chatham County office of the American Red Cross, about opportunities at the Red Cross for students. She shared the success of Red Cross blood drives in the high schools last year, with Lee County High School collecting 91 units of blood and Southern Lee collecting 183 units. She also told the board about the Queen of Hearts and King of Diamonds scholarship programs, in which students compete for scholarships through fundraising for the Red Cross. “All of that money will stay in this county and

go toward disaster relief,� Cameron said. Caroline Allison of the Red Cross asked the board to consider implementing the Red Cross’ Red Cord program in Lee County high schools. The program provides honor cords to graduating seniors who have contributed to the Red Cross three times during the school year by donating blood or volunteering. Cameron said so far this year, five students would be eligible. “We want to give them extra thanks and encourage them to keep working with us,� Allison said. The board awarded its first Clean School of the Month Award to Deep River Elementary School, which achieved a cleanliness score of 99. The custodians at Deep River will all receive gift cards. The school with the lowest rating scored a 47, thought

the board did not say which school that was. “I decided since this is the first time they’ve been evaluated, I wouldn’t read out every score,� Superintendent of Lee County Schools Jeff Moss said. The board also offered an update on the construction at Lee County High School, which is running on schedule. The first upright steel beams were installed in September. Brick masons are installing brick facing to the new Chiller Plant Building, and renovations to the Old Shop, New Shop and Ag buildings are nearing completion. The project is set to be completed in December 2011. “If you’ve been by recently, you can see (construction) is out of the ground,� Board Vice Chairman John Bonardi said. “It’s a wonderful sight to see.�


Woman charged in fatal wreck near Cary RALEIGH (MCT) — A 20-year-old Harnett County woman is charged with involuntary manslaughter after a Sunday afternoon car crash near Cary that killed a 73-year-old man and injured six others.

Carla Edith Romeroof 12 Circle Tree Lane in Angier appeared before a magistrate early Monday to hear the charges against her in the collision that killed Donald Carl Reynard of Bonne Terre, Mo.

In addition to the involuntary manslaughter charge, Romero faces three counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, according to arrest warrants filed in the Wake County

Magistrate’s Office. She is accused of seriously injuring Irma Andrade, Anna Reynard and Kenia Reynard with a motor vehicle, the warrants state. — Raleigh News & Observer

Doubling down on your food nightmares Our View Issue Kentucky Fried Chicken has chosen to include "sex" in its marketing campaign for the Double Down sandwich.

Our stance The marketing efforts are in bad taste. As for the Double Down, look at the State Fair’s menu this week for more cholesterol-raising fare


repare to be nauseated. It’s not enough that KFC — the proprietors of the Colonel’s restaurant have done away with the “Kentucky” and the “Fried” as part of a branding strategy — have introduced the Double Down to our food lexicon (and our stomachs). They’re using “ambassadors” — attractive college coeds wearing sweatpants with “Double Down” stamped across the rear — as a marketing tool. The coeds, at a growing number of universities, are paid $500 a day to wear the sweatpants and hand out $5 coupons to the maletargeted sandwich audience. “Hideous,” cried the head of the National Organization for

Women. “This is 12-year-old boy humor.” For the uninitiated, the Double Down is the world’s biggest chicken chain’s answer to McDonald’s Big Mac. It’s two slabs of fried chicken filets on the outside and two slices of cheese, two slices of bacon and a dollop of “Colonel’s sauce” on the inside. There’s no bread (“it’s so meaty, there’s no room for a bun” the ad campaign goes), but plenty to chew on for the nutritional police: 540 calories, 32 grams of fat and nearly 1,400 milligrams of sodium, which is just about as much as the American Heart Association recommends eating in a single day. “It is, all in all,” one popular

food blog writes, “a disgusting meal, must-to-avoid.” Double Down devotees describe the sandwich as delicious, but the marketing efforts — clever as they are — are in greasy bad taste. Sex sells, though, especially when it comes to food, so the marketing ploy shouldn’t come as a surprise. Officials on the campuses where the “student-body advertising” is taking place don’t like it, but haven’t taken steps to stop it; branding experts are calling KFC “the Hooters of fast food.” And speaking of bad taste, making us just as queasy this week was the announcement that one of the new items on the menu

at the N. C. State Fair — which opens its 11-day run on Thursday — is a Krispy Kreme hambuger. That’s right: an all-beef patty sandwiched between two glazed beauties from Krispy Kreme. Not enough for you? Cheese and bacon can be added for additional flavor, calories and a hastened hardening of the arteries. The “doughnut-ham-hamburger,” part of comedian Jim Gaffigan’s well-known riff on American’s obsession with fatty foods, now appears to be nearing reality. Pardon us while we find a bigger pair of sweatpants to change into.

Letters to the Editor Thanks to candidates who attended forum and informed local voters

Food times at the fair


here’s something that sounds so good when one hears the words “deep fried.” Now, admittedly, I realize those are not the most healthy words to devour. Remember: good taste doesn’t necessarily mean good health. Nevertheless, “deep fried” has taken on new meaning at fairs, including the North Carolina State Fair. Of course, many of us are fans of “deep fried” french fries. North Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture Steve Troxler told me this week that he is “a french fry man. I love the home cooked french fries.” In recent years, fried sweets have become available at the fair. State Fair officials note the new deep fried treats that will be available at this year’s event —deep-fried chocolate pie, deep-fried pumpkin pie, gourmet funnel cakes, beignets, mashed potato bites, deep-fried N.C. Cajun turkey wings and fried Frito pie. On Monday, at a State Fair preview event, I had the opportunity to sample a deep-fried honey bun. Now, my friends, I had all intentions of taking just one bite. But following that warm bite came another ... and another. It was all I could do to stop at that point. It was delicious goodness at its finest, reminding much of the famous Britt’s Donuts from Carolina Beach. Others at the preview tried the deep-fried Chips Ahoy cookies. I’m not sure how they tasted, but I’m betting they were mighty good as well, as they were a most popular item of the day. The Pre-Fair Media Tip Sheet listed some of the other new foods to be served at this year’s State Fair, which begins Thursday and continues through Oct. 24 in Raleigh. The new foods include gourmet cupcakes, pineapple lemonade, crawfish etoufee, chocolated covered Twinkie logs, giant gummy bears, a 1-pound all-beef hot dog and a Krispy Kreme burger. Yum! Yum! At this year’s State Fair there will be an ice cream eating competition, with preliminaries at 5 p.m. Oct. 18-22 and championship at 11 a.m. Oct. 23. Entry fee is $20 in the adult division, with a grand prize of $1,000. There is a $5 junior division entry fee, with a grand prize trophy. That should be a cool competition! If you’re a fan of cheeses, you’ll want to make sure to visit the dairy artisan product tent that will feature a variety of cheeses from North Carolina cheese makers. Also set for the fair are a variety of culinary competitions, including a variety of products including peanuts, sweet potatoes, apples, pork, pecans, beef and more. There will be plenty of food booths, including some operated by non-profits and churches. The State Fair offers fun times — and food times as well! Here’s hoping you’ll have a great week!

Defining success W ASHINGTON — Success in Afghanistan is beginning to come in the first muddy trickles after a long

drought. Small groups of Taliban fighters — sometimes a dozen with a leader — are approaching local Afghan government officials, asking what kind of deal they might get. “First, they want to be taken off any list, so they are not targeted,” explains a NATO official in Afghanistan. “Second, they want protection from the insurgency. Third, some kind of economic opportunity.” In counterinsurgency doctrine, this is known as “reintegration.” The official admits it is currently “spotty” in Afghanistan but spreading in all regions. “It is happening in small numbers — drip, drip, drip. It has not yet changed the battle space. ... It is not a tipping point, at this point.” The goal is to push these numbers much higher, with more insurgents driven to negotiation and exhaustion, so they “put down their weapons and go home.” Many Americans ask: What would victory look like in Afghanistan? It would look like this — except more of it. Eighteen months ago, Afghan insurgents had the morale that comes from momentum. But the surge in NATO operations, particularly Special Operations, has started to change the psychological battlefield. Special forces now go after eight to 10 major objectives each night — perhaps three-quarters of these raids resulting in the death or capture of an insurgent leader. Two Taliban shadow governors — a key position in their leadership structure — were killed in the last week. Such roles are quickly refilled, but replacements tend to be less seasoned and more frightened. “We hear a lot of chatter,” says the official, “from networks inside of Afghanistan.” Some fighters don’t feel “a moment of peace. They can’t sleep. They keep moving all the time. They can’t plan attacks, because they are planning to survive.” And this is opening up a “real rift” with Taliban “bosses leading from the relative comfort of Pakistan.” While some units are well supplied, others are “not supplied, not paid, but told to keep fighting.” Reintegration of low- and mid-level fighters is based on their concern for survival. Reconciliation between the Afghan government and higher-level Taliban leaders is a political matter, gaining much recent attention. President Hamid Karzai has convened a High Peace Council, open to Taliban overtures but insisting on certain conditions: repudiating al-Qaeda, laying down arms, accepting the Afghan constitution. The most ideological of Taliban leaders will never reconcile. Others may calculate, as many Sunni leaders eventually did in Iraq, that their current rejectionism is undermining their long-term political influence. In a national settlement, some kind of power-sharing arrangement is probably inevitable. But sharing power in a united

government is very different from the concession of Taliban control over any portion of Afghanistan’s territory. This would incite ethnic conflict and recreate the conditions that led to the 9/11 attacks. It is the definition of American defeat. Political reconciliation is the objective. But it is only conceivable if momentum toward reintegration continues and gathers — and this, in large part, is a military task. Many have argued that an acceptable outcome in Afghanistan will not be achieved by military force alone. True enough. But an acceptable outcome is enabled by military pressure. That pressure is currently being undermined by a Taliban argument. President Obama’s July 2011 deadline for the beginning of American troop withdrawals from Afghanistan is being used, according to the NATO official, as “an opportunity for propaganda.” “They are trying to convince Afghans that we are out in July. They are saying we will be gone, telling people, ‘We will remember our friends, and remember our enemies.’” There are two ways to combat this claim. The first is to build up the Afghan army and police, so that an eventual American drawdown will not leave a void. “This is one area,” says my source, “where the enemy has misjudged. They said that our training goals for the army and police were too ambitious. But we are meeting our growth numbers, and the quality of the force is taking off.” The task remains “very challenging,” but, with enough partnership and patience, it is achievable. The second response is to make clear that America is not abandoning Afghanistan in July. The message should be, according to the official, “As conditions exist, there will be a responsible drawdown.” It is America’s commander in chief who has created a destructive ambiguity on this point. And only he can remove it.

Today’s Prayer Those member of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. (I Corinthians 12:22) PRAYER: Father, help me when I get discouraged, that I can look to You and see victory. Amen.

To the Editor: Let me start off by thanking The Herald for sponsoring the conducting the forum on Oct. 7. For the citizens to do their civic patriotic duty and vote it is necessary to become informed on the candidates and their views. The voters need more than just who has the most yard signs or who has the catchiest sound bites. The voters need to understand the deeper political views and ideas that the politicians have. That is why it was good to see all of our County commission candidates and the candidates for the state house come out and answer questions. I was also pleased to see Congressman Bob Etheridge come out and answer questions; questions from the voters one-on-one before he took the stage and questions from The Herald readership after he took the stage. In fact, at one point he was practically surrounded by a gaggle of well-known Republican party members who all wanted to talk to him. He answered all of their questions in a polite and professional manner (even though I do not believe that they liked all of his answers). Congressman Etheridge stood up for his votes and explained how they have helped create jobs, kick start our economy and strengthen the middle class. I was disappointed to see that Renee Ellmers did not have time to attend. Mrs. Ellmers has time to meet with elite conservative journalists and attend secretive party fundraisers, but apparently she does not have time to mingle with common people who might want her to answer questions. Perusing her website will reveal painfully short opinions on the issues. For example she states, “I support tax reform.” What type of tax reform? A 23-percent federal sales tax? Ellmers (or her “handlers”) need to give the voters the information they need to make the right decision. Casting a vote for an unknown quantity like Renee Ellmers who apparently cannot deliver up her views is not the right choice for Lee County or the citizens of the 2nd Congressional District.

finding new uses for student growth data as part of North Carolina’s Race to the Top grant. Atkinson asked Moss to share the Head of Class Project as an example of how that data might be used. The Head of Class Project was officially announced in August with support from notable figures in education such as former U.S. Secretary of Education Richard Riley and Gov. Bev Perdue. The public-private partnership between Lee County Schools and the Lee County Education Foundation is an incentive-based initiative that rewards the highest performing elementary school with $50,000, to be distributed

among everyone on staff from the principal to the custodians. “I think it’s created some excitement across the state,” Moss said. “There are many districts that have explored merit pay programs. I think the superintendents were eager for a template or rubric that could be replicated across the state.” Moss said other superintendents came up to him after the presentation wanting more information about the project, but some expressed concern about where they would find the funding for such an initiative. “We were fortunate enough here to have an organization to generate that funding,” Moss said. Atkinson also asked Moss to speak at the New Superintendent Orientation on Oct. 7 about the lo-

cal budget process. In his presentation, “Navigating the local budget process: From the beginning to the Board of County Commissioners presentation,” Moss advised the state’s 18 new superintendents on how to best organize and present their budgets for the 2011-2012 school year. “It’s an area I feel comfortable with,” Moss said. “Over the years they like to hear from different districts about working with different boards of commissioners and how you structure your budget around the funds available and the priorities you set.” Moss is no stranger to giving statewide presentations. Atkinson has invited him to speak at meetings throughout the past 12 years. Prior to becoming superintendent of Lee County Schools, he gave a presentation about incorporating technology into the classroom. Moss said he hopes to continue sharing Lee County Schools initiatives such as the Head of Class Project with other districts across the state in the coming months. “It’s just an honor to represent the many individuals in this community that have worked diligently to provide some

additional incentives to our teachers,” Moss said. “It’s great to present their hard work to the state.”

D.A. seeks mental evaluation in Carthage nursing home killings CARTHAGE (MCT) — Moore County prosecutors are seeking a mental evaluation of Robert Stewart, after his lawyers said mental illness may be a defense in his trial over the Carthage nursing home killings. Last week, the defense lawyers told a judge they intend to use the defense but were waiting for more evidence before filing a formal notice. Stewart is accused of murdering eight people in a shooting rampage. This week, prosecutors are attempting to preempt the defense team by seeking their own evaluation of Stewart. They asked Judge James Webb to order that doctors at a state psychiatric hospital examine Stewart to determine his mental state on March 29, 2009, when he is accused of shooting 10 people at Pinelake Health and Rehabilitation Center. A hearing for the

motion is set for 2 p.m. Thursday. Last week, Webb heard arguments over a defense motion to change the location of trial. Stewart’s lawyers used the results of a poll they commissioned to contend that most Moore County residents had already made up their minds about Stewart’s guilt. Webb did not rule on the change of venue, and it’s not clear when he plans to. During the hearings, which spanned two days, Webb pushed the lawyers to agree on a trial date. Webb said he wanted to schedule the trial for the spring, but prosecutors said they would need 90 days for a state mental health evaluation if Stewart’s lawyers formally announced they were going to use mental capacity as a defense.

The Sanford Herald / Wednesday, October 13, 2010 / 7A



: What’s your motivation for seeking this office?

JOHNSON: My desire is to make Lee County prosper. I am a native of Sanford, having been born here and reared here. I attended school here, raised my family here and have worked my entire adult life here. I am committed to help Lee county escape from the financial issues now facing us. I can promise to use good judgement and make good sensible decisions that will affect the future of Lee County. WOMACK: I was inspired to run for the District 4 Commissioner seat so the Board of Commissioners can get proven leadership and another conservative voice (and vote) on issues that matter to Lee County residents. Many of our citizens are frustrated with the absence of leadership on the current Board. Lee County trails our surrounding counties in many statistical benchmarks. We also have unique qualities and attributes and a superior geo-strategic location in comparison to the other counties, so there’s no excuse for our poor overall status in so many areas. Like most Lee County residents, I believe it’s time for a change in Board membership. We need both experience and fresh new ideas from someone who has the energy, drive, and track record of success to get the job done.


: What promises can you make to voters if you’re elected? JOHNSON: Making promises are difficult in the current state of the economy. I will not make promises that I am not 100 percent sure I can keep. In the upcoming year Lee county will face budget cuts from the state and I will strive to keep our current tax rate of 75 cents per $100 evaluation, which is the third-lowest in

Womack, 12 Offices held our sought: none Campaign treasurer: Frank Del Palazzo the eight-county central section of North Carolina. I can only promise to do my very best to maintain our current budget without a property tax increase. Some people may make promises, but other than promise to work as hard as I can single taxpayer such as myself and my family, I will not make promises that I am uncertain I can keep. I think people deserve the truth not false promises. WOMACK: I have pledged to pursue measures that will identify and secure jobs for Lee County residents. I have pledged to promote and

implement policies that create a more favorable business climate across the County so small businesses are encouraged to relocate and grow here. I have pledged aggressive opposition to any new tax hikes, and I will seek property tax reductions in the near term. I have pledged to scrutinize the County budget in detail, assign priorities to each line item, then recommend cutting expenses and re-directing funds to our most critical unfunded priorities or reducing the tax burden on our wage earners. I also promise to get us caught up in leveraging Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) opportunities,

where we have fallen woefully behind the counties to our south in creating jobs and opportunity for rapid economic growth.


: In your opinion, what are the five most critical issues facing Lee County government following this election? JOHNSON: 1. Crime and Public Safety 2. Economy and Unemployment 3. Education to include K-14 ( basic high school and CCCC ) 4. Job Creations and Economic Growth 5. State of N.C. fiscal crisis 6. Increase tax base and attempt to avoid any tax increase. WOMACK: 1. We desperately need employment opportunities for the 12 percent or so of our working age residents presently out of work. 2. We must restore the economic vitality of this County. 3. We have alarming social problems — particularly in East Sanford — where violent crime, gang activity, teenage pregnancy and substance abuse seriously erode the County’s quality of life; which in turn prompts prospective residents and businesses to move elsewhere. 4. We lack effective leadership on the Board of Commissioners. There’s a lot of hand-wringing about our many problems, an absence of proactive decision-making, and defense of the status quo. The will of our taxpayers is not respected. 5. We are about to suffer significant cut-backs in government services resulting from diminished revenues at state and local levels. This cut-back could well result in degradation of educational programs and critical infrastructure services. Smart contingency planning will be vitally important

if we are to continue meeting the needs of our citizens.

that these higher income families demand. We must not concentrate all our energy on BRAC however because I know of several recent purchases of hundreds of acres of lane in the northern portion of Lee County and we need not forget the possibility of luring families from the Raleigh/Cary/Apex areas as well. You may not realize it but in Lee County 1 out of every 6 people live in an apartment and thus my comment about focusing on the home-building forecast. We will be facing difficult times this upcoming year in our budget and we are expecting budget reductions from the state this year somewhere in the $4 million range. Some candidates still want to run on the promise of cutting taxes but I do not think this is realistic in light of these reduced money. There will no doubt be some severe cuts in departmental areas with these reductions, but I am sure with the quality of department heads we have, we will be able to work through this dilemma and we will deal with the hard times and move forward. Lee County is a resilient county. However, I think under the circumstances, we will be facing this year I think promising a tax reduction is unrealistic. I had asked a friend and financial planner here with Edward Jones, Howard Bokhoven, to give me some perfect financial advice as I was contemplating possibly retiring. He said in order to give me perfect advice he needed to know the answer to two questions ... 1. I need to know the exact date you will die. 2. Now I need to know the exact rate of inflation every day from today until the day you die. Now that was a wake-up call to make me realize that any attempt to predict what I may do a year from now or make


: What specifically should the board of commissioners do to address each of those specific issues? JOHNSON: When we talk about growing and attracting new families and businesses to Lee county I think the two most important things are crime and education. A recent study indicates that the average couple between the ages of 22 and 38 years old with an average of 2 children when relocating are concerned mostly about education and crime. If a family is relocating here it is likely that they have employment and thus the unemployment issue is not a priority for them. The economy is however. The commissioners must place education and crime as the two top priorities. When I say education I am talking about K-14, with CCCC as the additional two years. Our community college was recently ranked as one of the top 50 nationally as a two year school and I think this speaks volumes about the leadership at that location by Bud Marchant and his staff. I also think Dr. Jeff Moss has done a wonderful job as our superintendent since arriving here in Jan. 2009. Don’t forget Dr. Moss had to assume the issues around the departure of Supt. McCormick which could have been devastating but he has rallied the staff and teachers and obviously have the schools on the right track. The dropout rate is down, graduation rate is up as well as SAT scores so I think someone looking to relocate here would be pleased with our schools. We must concentrate on the recruitment of new industry and new development within the housing industry. If we continue to follow in our efforts to attract families from BRAC we must have the housing

8A / Wednesday, October 13, 2010 / The Sanford Herald CANDIDATE Q&A: LEE COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS, DISTRICT 4

Q&A Continued from Page 7A a promise that I cannot keep is not only risky but foolish as as well. WOMACK: First, the citizens of Lee County need to elect me to the Board of Commissioners so I can invigorate the Board and initiate actions needed to get us growing again. We have to establish a favorable business climate in order to sustain long term growth and future job opportunities. That means we have to survey and then continue listening to our local small business owners and our established corporations for what they need to grow. We need immediately to disestablish our failed incentives policy in favor of a more goal-oriented and benchmarked economic development strategy. We’ve got to begin promoting public-private partnerships and collaborative networks to reduce the social ills in East Sanford and to get people back to work. And we’ve got to start promoting Lee County effectively to the BRAC leadership and FORSCOM staff so we can leverage this great opportunity for local growth.


: What role do you hope to play in addressing each of those issues? JOHNSON: The role I would play is one “out of seven with the same common goal.” I think there has been some unnecessary controversy on the board and I would like to think everyone would work together , use good business skills and judgement and make decisions base on the facts and not have a pre-judged opinion that you like or dislike some issue but rather listen to all the facts and render a decision that’s fair and impartial with only the good of Lee county at heart. WOMACK: My campaign theme is “Let’s Grow Together.” This is my way of saying together we can grow Lee County into a powerhouse economy and jobs incubator. I plan to exercise every avenue to promote Lee County to expanding businesses in the Piedmont Triad and Research Triangle areas as well as to the BRAC authorities. I will go after more companies like the newly settled hi-tech small business, now operating from the old Noah’s Ark building on the north side of Sanford. Owned by Dr. Bill Davidson, RFID Solution Team sells its technology to the military and our European allies. Companies like this will be the lifeblood of the future Lee County economy, and will keep us competitive in the state, local, and international markets. I will continue working publicly and privately with the United Way and our strong Evangelical network to seek solutions to

our growing social problems in East Sanford. And I will lead by example-setting an example that all of the Commissioners should follow.


: Assess the performance of the current office-holders you’re seeking to join: JOHNSON: I think they have performed well. There are some veteran commissioners like Robert Reives and Ed Paschal who have probably given guidance to some of the ones with lesser service, but it seems they have done well with adopting and agreeing on the budgets, screening the ever-controversial incentives packages all while keeping the focus on the budget woes. I think county layoffs have been at a minimum, and no teacher layoffs in the schools. I think we have some excellent department heads that do what they need to make things work. It is all about good business sense, common sense and the willingness to work through issues. WOMACK: Frankly, I am disappointed in the lack of vision, drive and determination among several of the current Commissioners. In watching Board proceedings, only one or two of the Commissioners ever display passion and energy in carrying out their duties. Some sit through Board meetings hardly speaking a word and giving the appearance they are merely rubber-stamping everything presented to the Board for a decision. There are precious few reports from Board members about the work they do between Board meetings, which causes citizens to think they are inactive. When elected to the Board of Commissioners, I will elevate the discussion, establish priorities, enforce fiscal discipline, and demand accountability for poor performance. The citizens of Lee County will know their tax dollars are being shepherded attentively. : What makes you the better candidate?


JOHNSON: I feel my commitment and my love for Lee County far outweighs my opponent. I am conservative and feel that my approach to business matters is my strong point. Over the last 30-plus years I have managed as many as three offices of James C. Greene Co. We investigate claims and provide insurance proceeds to people who have suffered great loss due to unforeseen tragic circumstances such at catastrophic fires, hurricanes or accidents. Over those years I have personally supervised $200 million in payments to these victims. I feel my business experience is unmatched by my opponent. I feel I can use the same financial experience and combined good discussion skills to provide the citizens a person that will be frugal and fair.

WOMACK: There is a stark contrast in our respective knowledge, skills and abilities to perform as a County Commissioner. I have proven skills and ability leading complex governmental organizations from the federal down to local levels while my opponent only has some local magistrate experience (and actually would prefer to be Lee County Sheriff). I have the discretionary time and the necessary contacts and relationships to help turn around many of our social problems in East Sanford; my opponent does not have my depth of understanding and experience working on policies to remedy these social problems. Having personally worked in Forces Command (FORSCOM) over the years, I have intimate working knowledge of what it will take to attract BRAC workers and related business into Lee County. My opponent says BRAC is over-hyped. I have been a successful cost-cutter and prioritizer in highly profitable multi-million dollar corporations; my opponent has successfully adjusted insurance claims. While we both have the desire to serve, clearly I am the better candidate.


: How would you “sell” Lee County to a prospective resident or business? JOHNSON: I think we have to show and convince people that the reason we ourselves live here is not because we have to but because we want too and it is a great place to live and play. We have a great schools system, community college, excellent law enforcement with active community watch programs, a good parks are recreation including public venues for outdoor activities, good health care with close proximity to UNC, Duke and other medical facilites, the Dennis Wicker Civic Center and the Temple Theater. I think Lee County has a vision for expanding and selling ourselves to anyone thinking of relocating here but the above mentioned assets are surely a great selling point. WOMACK: One important and often under-stated feature of our County is our geo-strategic location. Prospective businesses and residents are naturally impressed with the convenience and (expanding) capacity of our network of highways and roads, and our reasonable proximity to the military (north Cumberland County), the Research Triangle, and the Triad. We have a small town atmosphere that will be attractive to many expanding and moving businesses, but only if we drive down our tax rates and our disturbing trends in violent crime, high school drop-out rate, etc. I would also emphasize our great number of available industrial and retail buildings at very affordable prices. This is a huge advantage over our surrounding counties.


: What initiatives will you bring to the table as a commissioner if elected? JOHNSON: My good financial skills in business, my willingness to be aggressive when needed to achieve the results we need to move Lee County forward, and my willingness to serve the people of Lee County. My total public service of 38 years is unmatched as well by opponent all of which have been right here in Lee County. I think my experience in law enforcement, the judicial system and my business experience will make me the better candidate to evaluate any issues involving civil and financial issues before the board.

WOMACK: Five of my top initiatives are A) Lead a strategic planning session with the Commissioners and County budget/finance officials aimed at identifying priorities and preparing us for deliberate adjustments as we experience sustained economic malaise and reduced revenues over the next year or two. B) Establish a long-range, goal-oriented economic development plan that ties taxpayer funding to benchmarks and success. C) Reorganize, unify and step up the level of activity of the County’s BRAC promotional efforts. D) Promote unification of and empower a public-private partnership oriented on reducing high school drop-outs, juvenile crime, teenage pregnancy, and substance abuse levels. E) Elevate scrutiny of the County’s benchmark social statistics and develop a scorecard to help us gauge just which programs are working (or not working) to ensure we are elevating the Lee County quality of life.


: Discuss each of the following: Taxes, budget and finances of Lee County; funding of Lee County Schools; Lee County’s incentives policy JOHNSON: ■ Taxes, budget: I previously indicated while some may think our taxes are higher that other counties i would remind them that our tax rate of $.75 per hundred dollar evaluation is the 3rd lowest in the eight counties that comprise the central region. Our per capita or per person tax burden is $612 per person with only Johnston and Harnett counties being lower. That is because their tax base is so much larger geographically with much more real property to add to that base. This is not to mention that the two counties together have a total population or 271,000 people. I think some candidates tell people they will cut taxes because that is what everyone would like to hear. I have a copy of the budget and would like to know the programs that would be eliminated. I think this goes back to the question about making promises when

the financial situation is so uncertain with the upcoming budget shortfall from the state. I think the schools are doing outstanding. There has not been a budget increase for the schools for the past two years and dr. Moss has managed to maintain teaches staff with out layoffs. I think dr. Moss will continue to monitor the school system like it should be and we will have to see what the upcoming year brings but I’m sure the schools will stay within budget. ■ Funding of schools: I somewhat covered this in the above statement. As you know the state provides teacher salary and benefits and the county is responsible for the schools and maintenance. As it currently tells me the state funds approximately 85 percent percent of the total budget and the upcoming year will be difficult to say the least with the shortfall nut i know we will be able to work with dr. Moss on the funding issues. ■ Incentives: This has become one of the most controversial issues facing the board recently. I feel most board members see this as a necessary tool in today’s global recruitment of new employment opportunities. I know everyone talks about the recent caterpillar incentive of $900,000 in up-front cash money. I do know that Florence, S.C. courted Caterpillar with almost unbelievable incentive monies, a $1 lease on the former Maytag plant off I-95, and I think significant tax breaks for 10 years. I am not sure of the specifics but it was a tremendous deal. Our board felt that for the return in the long run, we could not afford to take the chance that Caterpillar was bluffing. In the long run, the $31 million expansion will bring, at our current rate of 75 cents (which some candidates want to reduce or cut), an additional tax revenue of $232,500 yearly for property takes alone. I personally feel had the board not stepped up and completed this deal, I would have really been disappointed. WOMACK: ■ Taxes, budget: Lee County has a capable County Manager and our Budget and Finance staff seem to be managing the County’s finances with great skill and diligence. What’s lacking is strategic economic leadership in the policy-making function of the Board of Commissioners. The Board needs to establish clearly articulated budget priorities and then ensure the County is spending its precious resources in accordance with those priorities. That activity is seriously lacking at present: we appear to be spending our declining revenues on “nice-to-have” items when other important needs are un-met. There is little evidence we have done contingency planning that would enable us to adjust in-stride later in this and the

Saturday, Oct 16th 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 Noon

next fiscal years. Moreover, we are taking too much in tax revenues from our citizens. In recent years, Lee County collected double the per capita sales tax revenues that Harnett or Chatham County collected, and yet our property tax rate was higher than all three of our surrounding counties. Clearly, this isn’t establishing a favorable climate for businesses to choose us over our neighboring counties. The Board of Commissioners should be held accountable for predicaments like this. ■ Funding of Lee County Schools: Schools and Public Safety are the top two overarching priorities of the County and its Board of Commissioners. My opinion is that the Board of Commissioners has abrogated its policy and program oversight responsibilities in deference to the School Board. Because the County must contribute more than 30% of our annual budget for K-12 school related line items, I expect the Board of Commissioners to exercise its oversight responsibilities to the fullest. As a Commissioner, I would expect a frequent capital spending, facilities and operations review with the Superintendent and the BOE. Once elected, I anticipate us having an active and ongoing dialogue about funding school programs and capital investments that make a difference for our children. ■ Lee County’s incentives policy: In a word, the incentives policy is “broken.” Now, I am not saying the EDC hasn’t been diligent in doing what it was chartered to do; it has. My issue is with the Board of Commissioners, who has been responsible and should be held accountable for its failed incentives policy. The Board of Commissioners has told the Economic Development Corporation to go off and chase prospective companies with the promise of tax breaks to those companies if they create a few new jobs locally. As a result, we have waived our ability to collect reasonable property tax revenues from a small number of local or inbound manufacturing companies in hopes of artificially creating some low skill blue collar jobs for Lee County workers. Our results are marginal and yet we continue to pursue the same strategy. Only now, at the bottom of a terrible economic cycle, are the Commissioners beginning to question whether the incentives policy was the right one to follow. That kind of introspection should have occurred two or more years ago. I believe a better strategy would be to thoroughly survey successful local companies to determine what key factors led them here and that led them to grow and employ Lee County workers. We should then market and promote those attributes to other companies looking for the same kinds of features. We need to be pursuing companies who will employ Lee County workers (rather than out-of-towners) so their home and retail purchases stay in Lee County. We need to be pursuing advanced technology companies (like RFID Solution Team, mentioned earlier) who are poised to grow and to create higher paying jobs locally, rather than low-skilled manufacturing jobs that are vulnerable to minor fluctuations in worldwide markets.

The Sanford Herald / Wednesday, October 13, 2010 / 9A parked on the fairgrounds now that they have their own designated area. The petting zoo will be near Gate 9. The layout outside the Kerr Scott Building has been moved around a bit. If you want to find exactly where all your favorite things are at the fair, there is a Food and Ride finder on the fair website — www. — and as a smart phone application. The fair can also be found on Facebook and Twitter. There’s a cheese-tastic addition to the fair this year, with a tent featuring North Carolina cheese artisans. Among them is Chapel Hill Creamery, the small farm and cheesemaker. Co-owner Portia McKnight said it will be there first time at the fair, and are looking forward to offering samples to their customers across the state. They’ll share three kinds of cheese samples and give mozarella stretching demonstrations. McKnight said it is a chance to meet more customers than they see at local farmers’ markets. “We have customers from the beach to the mountains, so we’re excited to be here, and they can taste our product,� she said. The cheese tent is located in front of the Graham Building. An ice cream eating competition will be held next week. New on the Midway and Kiddieland are five new rides added to the 100 already there plus more games, including electronic games and family-friendly games. All new rides use LED lighting and are fueled by biodiesel. Another green feature of the fair this year is a new exhibit called Seed Survivor, located near the GreenNC tent near

growing every year. In 2009 it reached record overall attendance with 878,000 fairgoers. Fair spokesman Brian Long said they’re celebrating more than just the fried food, though that abounds. “There’s so much to celebrate all fair long,� he said during Monday’s media preview, ticking off the list including heritage crafts, rides, games and agriculture. Back to the fried food. If you liked last year’s fried Oreos, this year you can try fried Chips Ahoy or sticky buns. Other new deepfried sweet fare include chocolate pie, pumpkin pie and beignets. Get your fry on with deepfried Cajun turkey legs and mashed potato bites, too. And if you want to combine sugar and salt, there is the fried Frito pie and — wait for it — the Krispy Kreme burger. Other new, non-fried edible treats include giant gummy bears, chocolate-covered Twinkie logs, pineapple lemonade, crawfish etouffee and a pounder hot dog. Walk off all the calories checking out the state fair’s annual displays showing North Carolina’s agriculture heritage, something that needs to be taught to newcomers to the state, said agriculture commissioner Steve Troxler. Troxler said like most fairs, the focus in Raleigh is agriculture. “Our focus is always on agriculture and trying to educate the public as to what we do now, what we’ve done in the past and even to what we will be doing in the future,� Troxler told The Herald. In addition to exhibits and education, the fair has started a foundation to raise money for a state agriculture museum that will be built on the fairgrounds. Speaking of the fairgrounds, there are some changes to the fair this year. Kiddieland will be brighter, with more light fixtures. There will be fewer trailers and RVs

Gate 11. Visitors can plant a sunflower seed and take a piece of the fair home.

Q&A WITH TROXLER North Carolina Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler took a moment to speak with The Herald Monday. â– Favorite part of the fair: “I like all of it. But, the truth is, I like the heritage end of the fair. I think it’s so important that we know where we’ve been in North Carolina agriculture. ... I’m one that believes you can never do well in the future if you don’t know where you’ve come from.â€? â–  Favorite fair food: “I am a French fry man. I love the home-cooked French fries. And, of course, there are so many sweets out here. I try to watch my waistline, but it would be silly for the commissioner of agriculture to be skinny, so I indulge in a lot of different things here at the fair.â€? â–  One word to describe the State Fair: “I’ve visited a lot of state fairs across the country and this one is intense. I think that’s probably the best word to describe it is just intense.â€? â??â??â?? The Herald-Sun’s Dawn Baumgartner Vaughan and The Herald’s R.V. Hight contributed to this report

The divas of the past continue to have clout with today’s artists, Taphorn said, “because they changed the way music evolved.� “These women were so individualist stylistically,� Taphorn said. “They put their own distinct stamp on the music of their era, and they changed it.� Taphorn will perform alongside singers Shannon Venable, KC Holiday, and Kim Brown — as well as bassist Ron Huff, drummer Bobby Johnson and pianist David Almond. Taphorn credited Almond with the idea for the Divas Concert, which debuted last year. This year’s performance will be dedicated to the memory of Gwen McIver — a beloved Sanford native who died in May. Hundreds of locals learned piano in McIver’s living room or heard her play at First Presbyterian Church. “She was a great mentor, a great friend, and she helped guide me in my studies,� said Almond, who is now organist at First Presbyterian. “She was a big supporter of all of her students and wherever they went afterward, she kept up with them.� McIver was a piano teacher for 60 years and a church organist for 41 years. The mentor Almond remembers always had a story to tell and was not one to draw

attention to herself. “Gwen was a very humble, modest person,� Almond said. “I think she’d say, ‘Oh, you don’t have to do this.’ But I think she’d love it.� Shying from the spotlight is not a trait typically associated with “divas.� Nonetheless, Almond said McIver had plenty in common with the concert’s celebrated artists. “We’re giving a tribute to some of the great women in music, so in that way, it is appropriate,� Almond said. “To me, [McIver] was probably the matriarch of piano teachers around here; she was the one everyone looked to.� While Almond came up with the concept for the divas homage, he called the event “a joint effort from everyone performing.� “This is truly a collaborative effort from every single musician on stage,� he said. The show opens with a Beethoven melody, which segues directly into Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.� The set list is a compilation of duets, solos and ensemble numbers — full of favorites ranging from

the Supremes’ “Stop in the Name of Love� to Patsy Cline’s “Crazy�. “We all blend really well with each other,� Taphorn said. “You have to be listening to everybody else, and it’s challenging, but it’s fun and it sounds great when it really works.� The musicians take the stage at First Presbyterian at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the theatre box office or through the church. Proceeds from the concert will go to the organ fund in McIver’s memory, to the community handbell choir, to the women of the church for coffee and desserts and to Temple Theatre for its assistance with publicity.

ime is drawing nigh. Six races to go in the 2010 Sprint Cup season. Six drivers with a chance to upset Jimmie Johnson. Six weeks before they crown the same champion. I don’t like that combination. Three sixes. So let me come up with another six — six more columns to write before my pending retirement. Whew! That was close. Let’s look at all 4 sixes! It is hard to believe that this season is about over. Where did time go? It just seems like yesterday that we were discussing Daytona, but here we are heading to Charlotte for the last night race. Then the drivers have to go to Martinsville, Talladega, Texas and Phoenix before the grand finale at Homestead. Out of those tracks, the wild card has to be, as always, Talladega. Depending on which driver can escape the wrath of the big one, the track will more than likely yield the champion. I find it amazing how every year Jimmie Johnson avoids the wrecks and survives. He and Chad Knaus know the secrets of success. The pretenders — Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart — are usually trying to race to the front and aren’t as fortunate. But if they want a chance to upset J.J., then this is the year they need to follow his lead and

Lee’s Carson Wilson has passed for 1,204 yards and 18 touchdowns — with only one interception — this season.

Wilson, Swann the catalysts to Jackets’ success By RYAN SARDA

SANFORD — Thanks to the arm of quarterback Carson Wilson and the speed and quickness of wide receiver Dequon Swann, the Lee County offense has put up some impressive numbers this season. The Yellow Jackets currently hold a 6-2 overall record and a 4-1 mark in the Tri-9 Conference — their best record since 2004 and has guaranteed itself a winning regular season. Wilson and Swann are the main reasons why the Yellow Jackets are seeing their share of success. “They’re both extremely good people,” said Lee County head coach Burton Cates. “They both have great football minds. They set goals for themselves and they get disappointed if they don’t accomplish those goals. They’re both the kind of guys that anyone would want on their football team.” Wilson, who shared time as the team’s starting quarterback last year in Cates’ first season, has played with a lot more

CHAPEL HILL — Greg Little, whose collegiate career ended at North Carolina after being ruled permanently ineligible by the NCAA on Monday, released a statement Tuesday apologizing for his actions. The wide receiver, along with teammate Robert Quinn, was found to have violated the NCAA agent benefits and preferential treatment rules, as well as the ethical conduct rules. “One of my greatest accomplishments was receiving a scholarship to the University of North Carolina,” Little said. “Representing the University was a true honor and I am so appre-

Braves begin life without Bobby Cox as manager ATLANTA (AP) — Bobby Cox strolled into the Atlanta Braves clubhouse around lunchtime Tuesday with that familiar waddle, only this time he was wearing his new uniform: A blue golf shirt and slacks. The duds of retirement. “Are y’all still here?” he jokingly yelled toward the handful of players who had returned to clean out their lockers, not even 24 hours removed from a season-ending loss in the NL division series. On the first day of the rest of his life, Cox still had plenty of loose ends to tie up. First up was a meeting with general manager Frank Wren, probably to start graphing out his new consulting role with the organization. At

As strange as it seems, someone besides ol’ No. 6 will be occupying that spot next season. “It’s still hard to believe he’s not going to be the manager come spring training,” Chipper Jones said. But that’s the reality, and Wren made it clear he’s already got a timeframe in mind to name Cox’s

Jr. Pee Wee defense stout in win SANFORD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Sanford Sting Pop Warner Junior Pee Wee team defeated Wake Forest Lightning 14-0 to remain defeated at home. In fact, the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense has yet to allow a point at home and has only allowed 13 points all season, while recording two safeties and a touchdown of their own. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record sits at 4-2 overall and 4-0 at home. Billy McLean scored on touchdown runs of 95 and 60 yards to lead the offense against the Lightning.

try to emulate his success. Notice I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mention Kurt Busch or Jeff Gordon. I still think they have an outside shot of winning. Why? For Busch, it is simple. He has been strong at the mile- to mile-and-a-half tracks, and if he can find some magic at Charlotte, he will get back into the picture. As for Gordon, he has a yearning to win, and with the resources Rick Hendrick supplies he can make a run at his teammate. He will have to get

the chains. Jamie Shaw and Walker Harrington provided great leadership as quarterbacks in the win. The offensive line consisting of kids nicknamed Beast, Big show, Big Punisher, and Matthew the Mauler opened the holes for the runners. On defense, Cole Garris had a safety and two sacks, Billy McLean was the leading tackler and Cody Venrick had a sack and had three tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Also, Matthew Gautier recovered a fumble and Mike Fox had a sack. Tariq Petty, Ethan Bevier,

and Bryson Ludwig anchored the middle and punished ball carriers that dared to run up the gut. The team faces undefeated Apex on Saturday on the road. Their head coach is Mark Shaw and assistants include Dale Griffin, Andy Chuman, Shayne Bevier and Jeff Venrick.

But wait! They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t teach journalism any more and my old teacher retired many, many years ago. So I have no one to practice with, thus I am depending on you. I will not mention retirement again this season. We have six very important races to go and any decision that I make can wait. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s see what happens in Charlotte and Martinsville, and then after Talladega I will make it official. Watch for the announcement. See you after Charlotte!

for 1,204 yards this season and has 20 touchdown passes with just one interception through the first eight games. He’s thrown just 52 incompletions all season long and averages 14.5 yards per completion. Wilson credits his play this season to the Lee County coaching staff and to the Yellow Jackets’ offensive line for its blocking prowess. “I think a lot of it has to do with everyone knowing the offense and the coaching staff much better than we did last year,” said Wilson. “None of it would be done, though, without great blocking from our offensive line. They’ve helped me get more time to make better decisions. The offensive line deserves a lot of the credit.” Cates, who is in his second year as the head coach of the Yellow Jackets after spending 25 years at Eastern Randolph, has coached his share of successful quarterbacks including Elon senior Scott Riddle, who became the Southern Conference’s all-time leading passer earlier this year. The coaching legend sees great potential in Wilson when it comes to playing at the next level, and said he feels that by season’s end, a lot of colleges will have interest in the 6-foot, 175-pound senior. “Carson has been working hard all season long,” said Cates. “He

Lee County’s Cedric Gray (38) leads the county in rushing with 536 yards on 111 carries. works diligently in the weight room and has put up some impressive numbers this season. I think by the end of the year, a lot of people are going to be very interested in Carson. He’s exceeded our expectations this year and is only going to get better.” Wilson’s favorite target is clearly Swann, who has caught nine of the team’s touchdown passes, or more than one-third of the team’s total touchdowns on the season. Swann has 590 receiving yards on 35 catches, averaging 16.9 yards per catch. “It’s such a big help having someone like him as our go-to guy,” said Wilson. “He knows how to make the big play and can make it at a critical time for us.” Like his quarterback, Swann also credits the offensive line, led by Victor Ingram, for its strong blocking. “The offensive line has done a great job this year blocking for us,” said Swann. “If it wasn’t for them, I don’t think we’d have the numbers that we do.”

Swann, who has also rushed for 134 yards on eight carries and has a rushing touchdown, has noticed a huge improvement in the play of Wilson this season. “Carson’s staying in the pocket more and is remaining calm under pressure,” said Swann. “He’s gotten a lot better this year and it’s showing on the field.” Cates says that Swann has been a valuable asset to the Yellow Jackets since he took over at Lee County in 2009. “This kid has tremendous God-given ability,” said Cates. “He’s got great size and has incredible speed. The kid is a great athlete and has meant a whole lot to this team this year.” It’s not just Wilson and Swann that are lighting up the stat sheets for the Yellow Jackets, though. On the ground, the Yellow Jackets have rushed for a total of 11 touchdowns and have combined for 1,140 rushing yards. They are led by the trio of Cedric Gray, Isiah Williams and Israel Williams. Gray leads the Yellow

Jackets with 536 rushing yards on 111 carries and three touchdowns. “One thing about Cedric is that he is so consistent for us,” said Cates. “He’s sure about himself and is confident in his running ability.” The Williams brothers also play their part in rushing and receiving for the Yellow Jackets. They both also have a significant impact on the defensive side of the ball as well. Isiah Williams has four touchdowns on the ground and five through the air. On the ground, Isiah has rushed for 258 yards on 33 carries. Through the air, he’s caught 12 passes for 226 yards. Israel Williams has rushed for 125 yards and two touchdowns. He’s also caught six passes for 54 yards and a touchdown. “We wish we had more guys like Israel and Isiah,” said Cates. “They play key roles for us both offensively and defensively. They give so much on every play and it wears on them because they play both ways. They give 100 percent on every play, offensive or defensive.” Wilson, Swann, Gray and the Williams brothers won’t be in action this week as the Yellow Jackets are off. They will look to rebound from their 21-20 setback at Middle Creek when they host Cary next week. “We’ve got two weeks to prepare for Cary,” said Wilson. “Hopefully, we can regroup from that tough loss with a big win against Cary. We need it.”

Blue Devils ready to get back to work By STEVE WISEMAN Durham Herald-Sun

DURHAM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An off week in October was nice, Duke coach David Cutcliffe said Tuesday, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than ready for another game. He hopes his players feel the same way. Following its open weekend, Duke returns to play on Saturday against Miami at Wallace Wade Stadium (1 p.m., ESPN3. com). When the Blue Devils (1-4 overall, 0-2 in the ACC) take the field, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be looking to end a four-game losing streak. Coupled with the four consecutive games Duke dropped to end the 2009 season at 5-7, the Blue Devils have been on the wrong end of the scoreboard in eight of their last nine games. That mental toll can be taxing, particularly on a team with so many young players like this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blue Devils. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the biggest thing is keeping our enthusiasm and keeping our energy,â&#x20AC;? Duke redshirt sophomore quarterback Sean Renfree said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to do that after a loss for any team. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we have to do to help us get back

Duke head coach David Cutcliffe yells to his players during the first half against Maryland. on track.â&#x20AC;? The last two losses have been particularly painful. Duke turned the ball over five times in a 35-21 home loss to Army on Sept. 25. Two more interceptions, as well as allowing a punt return for a score, doomed Duke to a 21-16 loss at Maryland on Oct. 2. The Devils also lost a 54-48 game at Wake Forest on Sept. 11, meaning they are just a couple of touchdowns away from being 2-0 in the ACC and having a far different outlook. Instead, they used the 10 days since the Maryland loss to regroup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coming off some disappointing losses, you are healing physi-

Central Carolina Family Practice â&#x20AC;&#x153;In pursuit of good health, happiness and long lifeâ&#x20AC;?

cally,â&#x20AC;? Cutcliffe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I think there is some mental healing to that. I think confidence is a big, critical word. I think confidence probably has suffered to some degree. Confidence is never given. Confidence is earned. This kind of gave us an opportunity to gain back some of our confidence and hopefully we have done that.â&#x20AC;? The Blue Devils are striving to get better in all aspects. The defense is last in the ACC in scoring defense (39.8 points) and total defense (431.8 yards per game). The offense, while third in total offense (420.4 yards per game), is ninth in scoring offense

(27.8 points per game) and has turned the ball over 12 times (secondmost in the league). On special teams, Duke is one of two ACC teams (along with UNC) that has allowed two punt returns covering 70 or more yards this season. Duke has also allowed three kickoff returns of more than 70 yards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to put everything together,â&#x20AC;? Duke redshirt senior defensive end Patrick Egboh said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to put offense, defense and special teams together and finish out.â&#x20AC;? The Blue Devils donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly have a schedule that allows for learning, though. After Miami (3-2), Duke plays at ACC Coastal Division-leading Virginia Tech (4-2) and at a Navy (3-2) team that won at Wake Forest last week. Still, Duke believes the week away from games that allowed for in-depth introspection gives them a chance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helped us really assess ourselves as a team,â&#x20AC;? Duke senior cornerback Chris Rwabukamba said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very hopeful of what we saw. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very encouraged and enthusiastic about the rest of the season.â&#x20AC;?

Report: Agent admits paying college players NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A former sports agent tells Sports Illustrated he paid college football players early in his career, and several of them confirm it to the magazine. In the Oct. 18 edition, Josh Luchs said he paid more than 30 players from 1990-96, including many who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign with him. He said quarterback Ryan Leaf, the second pick in the 1998 draft who famously flopped in the pros, took more than $10,000, most of which he voluntarily paid back after signing with another agent. Leaf declined to comment on specific allegations. Luchs told the magazine he also paid firstround picks Jamir Miller and Chris Mims. Miller, a linebacker from UCLA taken 10th by the Cardinals in 1994, declined comment. Mims, a defensive lineman from Tennessee taken 23rd by the Chargers in 1992, died in 2008. The former agent also said that while he was

recruiting Ohio State receiver Santonio Holmes in 2005, Holmes said he had been taking money from an agent for a couple of years. Holmes, now with the Jets, told the magazine that the story was untrue. Luchs was suspended for a year by the NFL Players Association in 2007 over the handling of a commission check. He says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s telling his story because â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want my career to be defined by that suspension.â&#x20AC;? Luchs says he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay players while working with Gary Wichard, the agent linked to the investigation of NCAA violations at North Carolina. But he says Wichard and John Blake, the Tar Heels assistant who resigned amid the investigation, worked together in violation of NCAA rules in 2002. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday that the league has talked to college coaches and agents about reports that a coach was on an agentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s payroll.

ciative of Coach [Butch] Davis and his staff for giving me the opportunity to achieve my dream of playing for North Carolina. I want to apologize first to my teammates, coaches, and the support staff for letting them down. To the community of Chapel Hill, students, alumni, and supporters of the University, I am terribly remorseful.â&#x20AC;? The NCAA found the former Hillside star took $4,952 worth of benefits and then provided false information, despite multiple opportunities to correct his claims. Among the benefits Little received were diamond earrings and travel accommodations to the Bahamas, Washington, D.C., and two trips to Miami. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The recent decision from the NCAA regarding my eligibility as a collegiate athlete is extremely painful, and has been a distraction from the team throughout the past five months,â&#x20AC;?

Now that I am no longer a part of the program, I hope my actions will not distract the team any longer.â&#x20AC;?

North Carolina wide receiver Greg Little during the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first day of practice in Chapel Hill. Little was declared permanently ineligible by the NCAA Monday. Little ends his college career with 805 rushing yards and 969 receiving yards, as well as 12 touchdowns in 22 starts. In the statement Little, a senior, said he would continue to pursue his education and participate in various outreach programs in the community.

â&#x20AC;?There are defining moments in everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life,â&#x20AC;? Little said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will use this as one of mine to shape and mold my morals and values as person. My time at UNC came to an abrupt conclusion, but I will forever be a proud supporter of the Tar Heels and the University of North Carolina.â&#x20AC;?

treatment and ethical conduct rules. But both he and UNC coach Butch Davis agreed â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they need to do more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a strong compliance program in place in all of these areas,â&#x20AC;? Baddour said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think anybody that looks at that program would say that we were doing more than significant things to protect our institution and protect individuals. Obviously we need to do more and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what this review process is going to do for us is going to establish things that we can do better.â&#x20AC;? And since the investigations began, several changes have taken place around the football program to try and prevent another scandal from occurring. Little and Quinn â&#x20AC;&#x201D; along with Deunta Williams and Kendric Burney who were suspended four and six games, respectively â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were all players that took trips which the NCAA deemed violations. Davis said players must now sign out when they leave campus for an extended period of time so the coaching staff knows where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going, who theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going with

and who is paying for the trip. But Davis also acknowledged the sign out sheets rely on personal integrity and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prevent a player from lying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things that was a revelation is that some of the trips obviously they did not take place while the school year was going on and some of the trips obviously generated from their own home town,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going home, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and you take it for what it is.â&#x20AC;? Davis said from now on anyone who plans on representing the personal interest of players, including agents or financial planners, will have to contact administrators to set up appointments and those meetings will take place at the Kenan Stadium offices. The school also has started to educate players on agents in their freshmen seasons instead of waiting until theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re upperclassmen. Juniors and seniors are allowed to have contact with agents but Quinn, a potential top-10 NFL draft pick, was just a sophomore last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait until the kid gets to be a rising star as a junior or a potential rising star as a senior,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You

assume that people, unscrupulously, arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to go out and reach out to your freshmen and sophomores. That may not be true anymore.â&#x20AC;? Baddour said the school should have acknowledged more that Little, Quinn, Austin, Burney and Williams were all NFL level talent and were going to have immoral people coming at them. He said Davis canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be responsible for the actions of 110 players, but UNC needs to have systems in place to catch things before they get out of control. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish with the level of talent with these players that we had done even more,â&#x20AC;? Baddour said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But at the same time I recognize thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just so much you can do and when they make bad decisions, inappropriate decisions, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be consequences. We could have done a thousand things different and maybe have not stopped anything.â&#x20AC;? Baddour said he does not fear the NCAA will find any â&#x20AC;&#x153;lack of institutional controlâ&#x20AC;? because of what UNC already had in place and how the school has handled the investigations. And Davis said hopefully the unfortunate lesson of the scandals wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall on deaf ears. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somebody asked me a week ago if you were on the outside looking in, what would you make of the situation?â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You use it as a great learning experience. This will provide a tremendous format or platform for us to educate kids in the recruiting class for next year and kids that are currently on the football team.â&#x20AC;?

successor. Most of the speculation has centered on Fredi Gonzalez, who was fired by Florida in June after 3½ years as the Marlins manager. He was a minor league manager in the Braves organization and did an apprenticeship as Coxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third-base coach from 2003-06. Gonzalez still lives in suburban Atlanta, remained tight with Cox and frequently turned up at Turner Field after being dumped by the Marlins. The Braves are likely to act quickly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Wren, after all, has known for more than a year that this would be Coxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final season. Pitcher Jair Jurrjens said he hopes the next manager is in the same mold as Cox, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask much of his players beyond working hard and showing up on time. If they followed those two simple rules (and abided by a couple of other minor pet peeves: No loud music or using cell phones in the clubhouse), they knew Cox had their back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you come in here now, you know what kind of rules you have,â&#x20AC;? Jurrjens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You hope itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be different, just the same type of guy, someone who letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s us do our thing and have fun. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want a sergeant to come in here with a bunch of rules.â&#x20AC;? Coxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successor will inherit a team that has one of baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best pitching staffs. The rotation is in good hands with 17-game winner Tim Hudson, Derek Lowe, Tommy Hanson and Jurrjens. Even though closer Billy Wagner is retiring along with Cox, a trio of promising rookies emerged this season: Jonny Venters (1.95 ERA, 93 strikeouts in 83 innings), Craig Kimbrel (0.44 ERA, 40 Ks in 20 2-3 innings) and Mike Dunn (1.89 ERA). Throw in ground-ball specialist Peter Moylan and the bullpen looks in good hands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the strength of our club,â&#x20AC;? Wren said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pitching is the hardest thing to get, and we have it.â&#x20AC;? Other than hiring a new manager, the top priority for the offseason is clear: The Braves desperately need a powerhitting outfielder â&#x20AC;&#x201D; preferably right-handed â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to bolster a lineup that was shaky at best and had no chance after season-ending injuries to Jones and All-Star infielder Martin Prado. Atlanta batted .175 and scored only nine runs in its four-game loss to San Francisco in the playoffs. Jones, who had considered retiring, changed his mind after going down with a knee injury. He hopes to be at close to full strength by the start of spring training and would presumably reclaim third base. That would send Prado back to second and free up Omar Infante, perhaps the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest surprise, to go wherever heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed. Infante wound up third in the NL in hitting (.321) and can play six positions. He even threw out the possibility of moving to center field, a weak spot for the Braves ever since they parted ways with Andruw Jones. Freddie Freeman is set to take over at first base after getting a brief taste of the majors this season. The Braves hope he can have the impact of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rookie star, Jason Heyward, who earned the starting job in right field at age 20 and showed he was worthy of it (.277, 18 HRs, 72 RBIs).

Yankeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Burnett to start Game 4 in ALCS NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A.J. Burnett will start Game 4 of the AL championship series for the New York Yankees on 2½ weeksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rest. General manager Brian Cashman said Monday that New York decided against using a three-man rotation against Texas or Tampa Bay, which would have required CC Sabathia, Andy Pettitte and

Phil Hughes to all start on three daysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rest in the latter part of the best-of-seven series. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope he pitches well for us,â&#x20AC;? Cashman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe in him every time he takes the mound, but he has struggled, no question about it, here in the second half. But that was then. This is now. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very competitive per-

son. We believe that competitive nature will allow him to step up and do a great job for us. We look forward to that. But you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run away from how he pitched in the second half. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pitch well.â&#x20AC;? In the second season of an $82.5 million, five-year contract, Burnett did not appear against Minnesota in the division series

and has not pitched in a game since Oct. 2. He was 10-15 with a 5.26 ERA during the regular season, including 4-13 with a 6.48 ERA over the final four months and 1-7 from Aug. 1 on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a very complicated delivery,â&#x20AC;? Cashman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as tough as they come.â&#x20AC;?

10B / Wednesday, October 13, 2010 / The Sanford Herald DEAR ABBY


Woman can’t stop the affair she started two years ago DEAR ABBY: How do I get out of an affair that has been going on for two years? I started it at a bad time in my life — fights with my husband, the pressure of having three young kids, and a business we co-owned that was in financial difficulty. I know what I did was wrong. My husband doesn’t know, and I don’t think he suspects. I’m afraid if I end the affair, I will get blackmailed or found out. My lover refuses to end it. He wants me and thinks he can treat me better than my husband. Any advice? — STUCK IN HOT TEXAS

HOROSCOPES Universal Press Syndicate

Happy Birthday: Making concessions at home will be easy if you are diplomatic. An opportunity to socialize with new people will benefit you when dealing with professional matters. Expanding your outlets through common interests will be the name of the game. The people you work with should also be your playmates. Your numbers are 5, 9, 17, 20, 31, 38, 46 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Partnerships are not likely to bode well if you are intolerant and impatient. Impulsive action will lead to legal, contractual, financial or even physical problems that will stop you in your tracks. Focus on doing the best you can. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Learn from your superiors. Take in every bit of information you can and make it your own. Once you’ve mastered what’s being taught, you can advance in ways you never thought possible. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You should probably take a closer look at your personal papers in order to ensure the safety of your assets. Now is not the time to take chances. Don’t pay for someone else’s mistakes -- offer advice not cash. CANCER (June 21-July 22): It will be hard to face personal problems and opposition you encounter from friends and family. Listen to what’s being said and assess the situation without making a fuss. Expect criticism but don’t let what’s being said depress you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Interacting with people who have similar interests or goals will help you get ahead as long as you don’t let someone dependent on you cause you to miss opportunities. Take a time-out and reevaluate your current relationships. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): There is a great deal to learn as well as to offer. Sharing information


and ideas will lead to an interesting revelation regarding your professional and financial future. Hard work coupled with imagination and innovation will lead to a new way of doing things. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): There will be issues to deal with at home and in your personal life but, if you try to run from the problems you face, it will only make matters worse. You cannot always keep the peace if you want to end old conditions that aren’t working to your benefit anymore. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can learn a lot from your mistakes. Trusting someone to do what’s right is not likely to pan out. Handle any matters that need your undivided attention with banks, government agencies or organizations you need on your side to get ahead. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Finish what you start, especially when it has to do with work. A serious, disciplined attitude coupled with originality will help you bypass criticism. Stifle your emotions for now. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19): Focus on the changes you can make in order to satisfy your needs and you can deal with what others are doing with less stress. Use your experience with others to help you discover how much you have to offer. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put your heart and soul into whatever you do. Don’t let your past hold you back or lead you in the wrong direction. Use your experience or what you have to offer to pay off debts. Don’t let anyone take advantage of you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Deals can be made but partnerships may not turn out as expected. Be careful with whom you get involved. A love relationship can help you secure your assets, allowing you more time to look for the help you need to advance.

DEAR STUCK: Just this. A man who “refuses to end it” and implies that he would blackmail or betray you is not someone you would ever want to spend your life with. It’s time to tell your husband everything — that you deeply regret what you have done, why it happened, that you want to heal your marriage and be free of this barnacle who refuses to let go. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be. Do it now. o DEAR ABBY: My wife, “Marissa,” and I are expecting our first child. My sister “Patti” has a little boy whom we all love and adore. When Patti learned that we’re having a girl, she said we don’t “deserve” to have one because she

to Patti for “snapping.” Ditto for your sister for her tactlessness. Then remind your sister that we don’t live in a country with a onechild policy. If she wants to try for a daughter, she is free to do so, and in the meantime, she’ll have a sweet little niece to spoil.

has always wanted a daughter. Then Marissa added fuel to the fire with a few well-chosen remarks of her own that she shared with friends and neighbors. I just want all of this to stop and I don’t know how to accomplish it. I’m upset with Patti for her behavior, and sad that my wife and sister are at odds. This is hurting everyone in the family. What should I do? — STRESSED-OUT DAD-TO-BE DEAR STRESSED OUT: Everyone needs to just calm down. Your wife and sister need to apologize to each other. Patti may have been joking when she said you don’t deserve to have a baby girl. What she may have meant — and overstated — was that she was experiencing a twinge of jealousy. Suggest to Marissa that your sister shouldn’t have been taken literally, and that she apologize

o DEAR ABBY: My family moved to a new state last year. While there have been ups and downs, one of the things I miss most is my pets. Before we moved, we had a dog, a cat and some goldfish. Now we’re in an apartment and can’t afford all the fees associated with having pets. Also the apartment is too cramped to accommodate them. My son “Toby” is 2. He loved each of the animals. He’d watch the dog run around, pet the cat and stare at the fish. The cat slept in Toby’s nursery, the dog guarded him in his stroller, and the fish loved him because he fed them. How can I encourage my son’s natural love of animals? A few hours playing with a cat or dog would be fine. — PETLESS IN MARYLAND DEAR PETLESS: Buy your son more goldfish. Read him stories about animals, and take him to the zoo as often as you can manage. His love of animals has already begun and this will continue it to develop.



Man finds wedding ring in grandmother’s garden

Columbus statue in RI defaced on holiday

SHELBY, Mont. (AP) — A Montana woman received a big surprise for her 80th birthday — the wedding ring she lost eight years ago. Norma Welker of Shelby tells the Great Falls Tribune she took the ring off while she was arranging flowers cut from her garden. A phone call distracted her while she cleaned up and she didn’t realize the ring was missing until after her trash had been hauled away. She searched the compost pile with no luck and figured the ring was gone forever. This spring, she decided her garden was too difficult to keep up and asked her grandson to till it so she could plant grass. Nick Welker was tilling the area when he spotted what he thought was a pop top. He bent down to pick it up and found what looked like his grandmother’s lost wedding ring. His grandfather is deceased, and he showed the ring to his parents, who confirmed his suspicion. Together they decided to surprise Norma Welker with the cleaned up ring for her 80th birthday. “I really couldn’t believe it,” Norma Welker said. “It just seemed like it was so impossible. I asked him where on Earth did you get this?” Norma Welker points out that if her grandson hadn’t found the ring it likely would have been lost forever after the area was planted with grass. As surprising as the find was, it wasn’t the first time Nick Welker recovered a lost wedding ring. As a senior at Shelby High School in 2004, a shiny object caught his eye in the school parking lot. It was a $15,000 wedding ring that belonged to a teacher. Nick Welker returned it and refused the substantial reward she offered, Norma Welker said.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A statue of Christopher Columbus in Providence, R.I. was doused in red paint and a sign reading “murderer” was hung around its waist over the Columbus Day holiday. WJAR-TV reports the vandalism was discovered Monday morning. The statue of a standing and pointing Columbus sits at a busy intersection in the capital city. Police say they are investigating it as vandalism. A representative of the Sons of Italy tells WPRO-AM that he would like the vandalism to be investigated as a hate crime against Italians.


Band arrested after blocking LA freeway to perform LOS ANGELES (AP) — A rock band will have to face the music after blocking a Los Angeles freeway and performing atop its trailer. California Highway Patrol spokesman Rick Quintero says a big box van decorated with Imperial Stars’ logo stopped on the southbound U.S. 101 near Sunset Boulevard at about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, blocking four of the five lanes. The driver took the keys and fled in another car, then three musicians climbed on top of the van and began to perform. Quintero says they were arrested and the truck was finally towed away around noon after causing a mile-long traffic jam. Quintero says the musicians could face charges of obstructing traffic. The group, whose credits include “Traffic Jam 101,” says on its website it is dedicated to helping homeless children.

Nurture your faith to keep it strong Q: How can I get a stronger faith? Sometimes my faith seems strong and I feel very close to God, but other times it’s very weak, and I’ll even wonder if I have any faith left. -- Mrs. A.H. A: The most important thing I can tell you is that God doesn’t want you to be this way -- and because of that, He has provided you with everything you need to gain a strong faith. I’ve often asked myself why so many people are like you are: Their faith is like a roller coaster, constantly going up and down but never staying firm and settled. One reason, I’ve found, is because we confuse our faith with our feelings. Feelings come and go; sometimes we feel good, and sometimes we feel down. But if our faith is only as strong as our feelings, then it grows weak when we don’t feel good. Don’t just trust your feelings; they will fade. Instead, trust what God has done for you in Jesus Christ, and trust the promises of His Word, the Bible. In other words, learn to trust God’s truth -- for He cannot lie! Trust the truth that Christ died for you to forgive your sins, and trust the truth of His resurrection that assures you of eternal life. Trust also His promise that “I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). If you have never done so, ask Jesus Christ to come into your life today -- and He will. Then make the Bible a regular part of your life, as you hear it taught and preached in your church, and as you turn to it personally. The Bible says, “Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ” (Romans 10:17).

Commuter marriages can work By DIANA MARSZALEK For The Associated Press

During the week, Joseph Hausmann leads a fairly typical single guy’s life. The 32-year-old engineer lives in a small, rented apartment above a garage, relying heavily on microwavable dinners and an exercise regime that fends off his less than stellar diet. But Hausmann isn’t a typical single guy. On Friday after-

noons, he piles into his car and makes the four to five hour trip (if he’s lucky enough to avoid New York City rush hour) to Newark, Del., back to his house, wife and life as he used to know it before taking a job near Hartford, Conn., in February. “I liken my experience to going back to college and living in a dorm room,” said Hausmann, who started commuting long distance after being laid off, and a subsequent job search that reaped no leads closer to home.

“It’s literally going back to microwave and hotpot cooking.” It’s a situation that, while becoming oddly routine, is hardly ideal for Hausmann and his wife, Jennifer Adams, who continues to work and live in their Delaware, which has been on the market, garnering very little interest, since June. The difficult job market — let alone the uncertainties of buying and selling housing — has

Learning to share brownies

When Angie Dudley launched her baking blog three years ago she never imagined it would lead to an appearance on Martha Stewart and an invitation to the Emmys. And now she has a new accomplishment to add to the list — a spot on the New York Times Best Seller list for her new book based on that blog, “Cake Pops: Tips, Tricks and Recipes for More than 40 Irresistible Mini Treats” (Chronicle Books, 2010). The Atlanta-based graphic designer — better known online as “Bakerella” — began blogging as a way to save the photos and recipes for her cake balls, bitesized confections made by mixing crumbled cake and frosting. One day, she shaped a cake ball into a cupcake, put it on a stick and


am definitely a dessert person. I am not so much a baker, but I love to eat desserts. Therefore, I make myself bake them every now and then. A few years ago when I lived with my sister, one of our favorite things to do would be to make dinner together. “Dinner” usually turned into us making a few appetizers and then eating a whole lot of dessert. We’d make a pan of brownies — one of the mixes INSIDE that is See our supposed weekly Dining to be Guide for made in local menu an 9 x 13 options pan — but Pages 4-5C we’d make them in an 8x8 pan so that they’d be extra thick and chewy. We’d cut the pan into four huge brownies and then… we’d each eat two. Yeah, we’d eat a whole brownie mix in one sitting. Rather indulgent, huh? Well, a few years ago when I moved in with my husband, I was a little distraught to discover that he had no interest in sharing dessert night with me. He told me that he “just wasn’t that much of a dessert person”… huh? I didn’t realize there was any such thing. Sure, that just leaves more dessert for me, but I’m of the mindset that food is much more fun, and much more delicious, when shared. Last Easter, I decided to make my Mom’s old recipe for Black Bottom Cups. For the first time in our relationship, Ross was all about dessert. He just loved these, and even came back for more. So there you go, proof that these really are delicious. Even a non-dessert lover loves them. After all, with a rich, chocolatey cupcake enveloping a smooth, creamy cheesecake like filling topped with a blanket of chocolate icing on top, how could you really go wrong?

Time to get rid of all your hazardous junk

Proper pesticide use and storage

t’s amazing just how much “stuff” we can accumulate around the house. Many of these items can be donated, sold at a garage sale or simply tossed in recycling or trash containers. Many items such as paints, solvents, pesticides, pool chemicals, automotive fluids, etc. are not so easy to dispose of. These are considered Household Hazardous Waste. Many of these items are harmless if used as intended, however, if disposed of improperly, they can be harmful to our health and safety, as well as to our environment. Do you have pesticides, used motor oil, old paint, household cleaners, swimming pool chemicals, furniture strippers, insecticides, fungicides, herbicides and wood preservatives that you no longer use? If you do then you have your fair share of household hazardous waste. The average house has an estimated 3 to 10 gallons of hazardous products. Collectively, these materials can contaminate our drinking water;


here are many chemicals labeled for control of various pests – fungicides for fugal plant diseases, herbicides for weeds, and insecticides for insects. All are considered “pesticides”. Many people view pesticides as an easy “cure-all”, but this is not the case. Pesticides are highly effective if used in the manner specified on the label. However, chemical control should be considered as a last resort to control a problem. There are often other practices that can prevent the problem completely, such as placing the right plant in the right place. If you choose to use pesticides, ALWAYS READ THE LABEL!! This should be done prior to the purchase of the chemical to check that the product can be used in your specific location and on your specific pest. If you are unsure what is causing the problem you are seeing, do not blindly spray. Not only does this expose you and the environment

n Calorie Bargain: 400 Calorie Fix: Slim Is Simple: 400 Ways to Eat 400 Calorie Meals by Liz Vaccariello (Rodale 2010) The Why: This is a very simple concept. You eat three to four 400–calorie meals per day. The book is filled with beautiful color photos and not too much text. In fact, it reminds me of another Rodale book, Eat This, Not That. I like the way the publisher describes the book: “The 400 Calorie Fix provides the necessary tools to see food through the ‘400 Calorie lens’ and navigate meals and snacks ranging from Chinese takeout to salad bar selections, vending machines and concession stands, and even party platters and bar beverages.” If you browse through this book you will learn something about food choices. The Health Bonus: If you’re limited to 1,200 to 1,600 calories per day, you will almost certainly lose weight. What We Liked Best: Love the layout and design — it’s easy to read the book

Rucker a little too radio What is Bo Diddley’s friendly on new CD real name, and why? By MICHAEL McCALL For The Associated Press

Darius Rucker, “Charleston, SC 1966” (Capitol Nashville)

Darius Rucker’s second country music album ditches the traditional songs included on his previous album, “Learn to Live.” Instead, on his new “Charleston, SC 1966,” he focuses solely on contemporary, radio-directed songs — a clear sign that he knows the country audience, and country radio, has embraced him. The shift is understandable, since the former Hootie & the Blowfish frontman won the 2009 CMA New Artist of the Year award thanks to three No. 1 radio hits. But his new focus loses the creative sweep and

emotional force that made his first country album so compelling. Rucker’s voice remains a stout, immediately identifiable instrument. When he applies that voice to a compelling story line (“Whiskey and You”) or an inventive arrangement (“Love Will Do That” and “I Don’t Care,” the latter co-written with Brad Paisley), he shows how effective of a pop-country artist he can be. But too often his new songs, all 13 of which he co-wrote, are constructed around a clever catchphrase rather than a convincing emotion. Songs like “Things I’d Never Do,” “I Got Nothin”’ and the album’s first hit, “Come Back Song,” feature power-

ful performances that hardly vary in delivery and reveal little depth of feeling, despite dealing with serious topics. “Charleston, SC 1966” likely will maintain Rucker’s high profile on country radio. But it lacks the personal revelations promised in a title that recalls his birthplace and date. CHECK OUT THIS TRACK: On “Southern State of Mind,” one of the album’s breeziest cuts, the South Carolina native observes how his regional customs sometime don’t align with life in New York or California. Fortunately, the details and his delivery avoid the confrontational tone too often found in country songs that draw lines between rural and urban lifestyles.


Sequel to ‘The Strain’ dives into darker territory By SUMMER MOORE Associated Press Writer

“The Fall” (William Morrow, $26.99), by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan

In book two of their Strain Trilogy, Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan remind readers that not all vampires are pale-faced teens with strong moral codes and a soft spot for brunettes. “The Fall” continues where “The Strain” left off. Holocaust survivor and vampire slayer Abraham Setrakian is recovering from his run-in with the Master, ruler of the vampires. Ephraim Goodweather and Vasiliy Fet are trying to help Setrakian save the world from a vicious strain of vampirism that has been

spreading wildly. New York City is destroyed, and the undead multiply by the hundreds every night, causing such chaos that the power grid is almost obsolete. There is no police force or agency capable of defending the last remaining humans. The authors eloquently paint a city where cell phones are used only as flashlights and wireless Internet is a memory. The characters introduced in “The Strain” are enthralling, taking readers deep into Setrakian’s early life, when he discovered the vampire strain and formulated his vendetta against the Master. But the new characters make “The Fall” really shine. When some Latin rival gangsters are recruited, they

add much needed comedy and nearly explode off the page. The only hiccup is the sporadic addition of Vasiliy’s blog, which is interspersed throughout the book. This feels forced and out of place in a story where readers witness the death of technology. Del Toro and Hogan still make a strong team. “The Fall” is gripping, and vivid enough to spur a few nightmares — even among the biggest horror fans. Clearly pulling from his vast imagination — one that created the creatures of “Pan’s Labyrinth” — del Toro invents a vampire that manages to be unique, even in today’s oversaturation of such stories.

Q: Was Bo Diddley’s name really “Bo Diddley”? If it isn’t, what is the origin of that name? A: Bo Diddley was born Ellas Otha Bates in McComb, Mississippi, on December 30, 1928. He was adopted and raised as a young child by Gussie McDaniel, his mother’s cousin, and his surname was legally changed to McDaniel. When he was seven, the McDaniels moved to Chicago’s South Side and it was there that the young Ellas McDaniel developed an interest in music. As a member of Ebenezer Baptist Church, he learned to play both the trombone and the violin, earning a spot in the Chicago orchestra as a violinist until he was 18. According to his biography at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum, he decided to learn to play guitar after hearing John Lee Hooker’s “Boogie Chillen” during a concert in 1949. The rest, as they say, is history. McDaniel married traditional African 4/4 rhythms with his own form of blues and R&B. It featured a distorted, muted-string, choke-neck style of guitar playing he said was influenced by his years of playing the violin, and it was to have a profound effect on the fledgling genre that was known as rock and roll. It would become the foundational basis of this form of music. In 1955, Chess Records released his debut single, which featured his songs “Bo Diddley”

given rise in recent years to the number of people in commuter marriages, where couples live in different cities, states or even countries to make ends meet while trying to weather the economic storm. “I see it all the time,” said Nancy Fagan, a San Diego marriage counselor and divorce mediator who herself lives thousands of miles from her husband in Boston. Not wanting to transplant kids while one parent seeks work elsewhere is a big motivator, she said. According to 2006 U.S. Census data, the most recent available, about 3.6 million married individuals lived apart, not including people who were separated. Just what kind of challenges — and in some cases, benefits — living apart poses are as varied as the millions of couples in commuter relationships. On one hand, there’s a certain sense of independence, self-reliance and control, though reconnecting on weekends can be that much harder. That, couples said, is especially true when it comes to parenting or making household decisions. It’s not unusual for the at-home spouse to take on the role of decision maker, disrupting the flow of married life. As Adams, Hausmann’s wife, put it: “I don’t sleep well during the week when he’s not here, and I’m not sleeping well on the weekends because

and “I’m A Man,” both of which reached No. 1 on the R&B singles charts. The song “Bo Diddley” prominently featured this new rhythm and style of playing, which was soon to be known as the “Bo Diddley Beat”. Recognizing a good thing when he saw it, McDaniel took the song’s name as his stage name. There is some disagreement as to the origin of the name Bo Diddley. According to one source, he said that it was the name of a singer that his adoptive mother was familiar with when he was younger. Another source reports that it was the name of a local comedian that Leonard Chess borrowed for the song’s title. Q: In “Hotel California”, there’s a line that says “her mind is Tiffany twisted”. I’ve always wondered what that means. A: The Eagles’ “Hotel California” was once described as “a song about the dark underbelly of

I’m not used to having anyone else in the bed.” Commuter marriages have other pricetags. “It’s very expensive,” said Jennifer Dickson, who three years ago left her house and husband in Austin, Texas, to move to Washington, D.C. She’s now moving to Denver, where her husband plans to eventually join her. In addition to rent for a Washington apartment and a car, Dickson a communications expert for an environmental group, said airfare and travel budgets have taken a toll. The couple, who have gone from one to two weeks without seeing each other, now make a hobby of jockeying for cheap airfares and building up mileage points to take the edge off. “It was to the point where my husband switched his credit card so we could get points for more home expenses, even a new roof,” she said. It’s that kind of planning that often separates the successful commuter marriages from the ones that don’t work out, Fagan said. “About three-quarters of the time it works but you have to have concrete plans on how to make it work,” she said. That means commuter couples should map out specifics for everything from phone calls to each other to how conflicts with kids are going to be handled, she said. And they should make the most of the time they have together. Lee Igel, a New York University assistant professor and psychologist, said it’s also incumbent upon employers to real-

the American dream and about excess in America” by Don Henley, one of the song’s composers. As such, the woman in the song is preoccupied with thoughts about the world-famous jewelry store, Tiffany & Company. Founded in New York in 1937, the store is famous for its diamonds. It is also the namesake for the popular 1961 movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Q: Who is the “Richard” referenced in Joni Mitchell’s song “The Last Time I Saw Richard”? A: Although Mitchell has never publicly commented on the title character in the song from her 1971 album, Blue, “The Last Time I Saw Richard” is believed to be a reference to her former husband, Chuck Mitchell. He was a folk-singer who often performed with Joni on the coffeehouse circuit. The two were married in early 1985 and divorced in 1967. He continued performing after the divorce and is recognized today as a successful singer and actor with an active schedule. What’s the name of that song? Where are they now?

ize and accommodate the growing phenomenon by giving employees in commuter relationships options like telecommuting and flexible schedules. “Not all of them know how to deal with it well,” Igel said. “It challenges our assumption of how married people live and what a ’normal’ household is.” That’s a challenge that has arisen for Amelia Frahm, who, after moving multiple times for her husband Randy’s job, has opted to stay in their Raleigh-area home while he works on contract in Alabama. Despite owning a house, and two collegeage kids living at home to cut costs, Frahm said she’s gotten some grief from relatives who have more conventional beliefs about marriage. She has no easy answers for them. “Its just stressful,” she said. In Fagan’s experience, the majority of commuter couples can weather complex feelings when they know the separation is relatively short term, even if that means several years. For couples like Hausmann and Adams, and the Dicksons, the hardships of commuting are temporary, as both couples have game plans for reuniting and living under the same roof as soon as work and housing considerations allow it. “We realize now that being apart is not something you can do permanently,” said Dave Dickson, Jennifer’s husband. “We are definitely at that stage and are going to be thinking long-term.”

Green lawn’s a challenge for a do-it-yourselfer By LAURA JOFRE For The Associated Press

In the beginning, I said of our lawn: “as long as it’s green.” That approach, it turns out, is like saying of your children, “as long as they’re kids,” then sitting back and hoping for the best. My lawn is now a wreck of weeds and brown patches, littered with nutshells from the squirrels, who can tell this is the sort of lawn where anything goes. Who knew a simple, postage-stamp-size lawn would be so problematic? I had been keen to putter in my first lawn, thinking that gardening was relaxing, assuming that grass would just grow. My husband bought a small push mower and a bag of rye seed. Soon we had a sparse and bashful lawn. Little did I know what was in store. The trend in so many home projects these days — from growing vegetables to hanging out the laundry — is toward doing it yourself, going green, simplifying. But anyone who wants to take that approach to lawn care had better be ready for research and hard work. The lawn turns out to be a humbling, non-relaxing, never-ending project served by a conflicting mess of information, intentions, guilt and crazy internal accounting. It’s not so easy to decide: n Do you do it yourself, or go with a pro? That first summer, it

cause injuries, poisonings and air pollution. A hazardous waste is any unwanted chemical material from your home or farm that can harm you, other people, or the environment, when improperly stored or discarded. Many pesticides, household cleaners, paints and automotive products can become household hazardous waste. If you are storing many of these products and are waiting for just the right time to get rid of them, that time will be Saturday October 16 when Lee County will hold it’s annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day. This FREE event, sponsored by Lee County Solid Waste Division, NCDA Pesticide Assistance Program and Cooperative Extension, will take place at the Dennis Wicker Civic Center from 9 am until 1 pm and will be for ALL Lee County households and farmers. In preparation for the event, walk through your garage, storage buildings, look in your kitchen cabinets, pantry and cleaning closets and collect all the hazardous waste you no longer want or use. Place these items in a cardboard box, put the box in your trunk and bring it to the collection site at the Civic Center. As you approach the Civic Center be aware of the traffic routing into and through the collection area. Vehicles are to enter the back of the Civic Center just off Kelly Drive. Follow the signs around to the side of the Civic Center where train personnel will remove you hazardous material, you don’t even have to get out of the car! Once items are removed from your car, you exit the parking lot onto Nash Street. It’s

A cordless electric lawnmower being used in New Paltz, N.Y. became clear that most of our neighbors employed professionals, who careened around on noisy, air clogging, gas-guzzling power mowers and planted ominous yellow flags warning of herbicide use. Surely, I reasoned, lawn maintenance was not so difficult or important that we couldn’t care for our little lawn without poisoning the entire neighborhood. Mowing was easy. Prioritizing mowing time was harder, and I failed to acknowledge that if the lawn was to be green, it also would need some reseeding and maybe even

really that simple and so convenient! Items to be collected include: oil based paint, drain cleaners, paint thinners, motor oil, furniture strippers, brake fluid, kitchen cleaners, gasoline, bathroom cleaners, antifreeze, pesticides, transmission fluid, herbicides, solvents, insecticides, degreasers, batteries, cfls, and pool chemicals. In 2009, 323 vehicles delivered over 26,800 pounds of solvents, 820 pounds of unwanted pesticides, 15 gallons of batteries, 10 gallons of mercury debris, 1,926 fluorescent tubes and 165 gallons or used motor oil. Hazardous materials that are not separated and handled properly generate air, water, and land pollution. They also pose a serious threat to the health of children, adults, animals, and the environment when poured in drains, septic tanks, and in the trash, For further information on household hazardous waste or the Lee County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day, contact Lee County Solid Waste at 718-4622 or North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Lee County Center at 7755624.

fertilizing. By the next summer, our fragile lawn was sprouting crabgrass and harboring grubs. I took myself down a peg and ... hired a gardener. n Can you be ecological AND effective?

to unnecessary chemicals, but it may also not control your problem – then you will have wasted time and money. Instead, first bring a problem sample to our Center for identification and control recommendations. The label also states a signal word: CAUTION, WARNING, or DANGER. These words indicate the level of toxicity to humans with CAUTION being the least toxic. Personal protective equipment listed on the label is not a suggestion - it is the law. Follow all protective measures on the label – at the very least long pants, a longsleeved shirt, shoes with socks, a hat, and rubber gloves. This is to protect you, the applicator, from exposure. Always wash these clothes separately from the family laundry. The label will also state the amount of

pert, suspected my no-toxins rule was to blame. In my next lawn-maintenance failure, I consulted the Internet instead of an expert, with predictably inconclusive results: Lawn products are safe or they’re toxic; the “organic” label is trustworthy or it’s misleading; the dog will be fine or get sick. There were some inexpensive, innocuous solutions for weeds, like vinegar or lemon juice; wouldn’t it be virtuous to use those? Even better, use them myself and renew my efforts with the push mower? I let the gardener go. Here’s the problem: Virtue is time consuming and labor intensive. We kept weeding by hand, if we were going to be outside anyway, watching the kids or cooking hamburgers. It was not enough. The crabgrass unfurled its tentacles and sneered, “Try to love this environment, you weak tree hugger!” I did try. Maybe its bad rap was undeserved; after all, crabgrass was green, and grew well all summer. A mid-Atlantic crabgrass lawn would be a perfect solution, as sensible as a Southwest cactus garden. On the subject of chemical lawn products, the Internet offered myriad conflicting stories. On the subject of weeds, it pesticide to use. Only use the recommended amount – more is not better. In many cases, the use of more than the recommended amount exposes you to more chemical, can injure plants or damage treated areas, can harm beneficial insects, and can leave residues on food plants. Use a separate set of plastic or metal mixing tools for mixing and applying pesticides. Mix in a well-ventilated area and shield your eyes with goggles. Use all of the pesticide you mixed. Keep children and pets away from the treated area and follow re-entry intervals listed on the label. Also, if you are using pesticides on fruits or vegetables, pay attention to the time-toharvest period (PHI). If you have chemical left over, place it in a storage area. You should not store large amounts of pesticides at any given time. The storage area should be able to be locked to keep

was pretty consistent. For example, clover, another green and easy grower that I thought was a weed, is consistently described as a good addition to the lawn; it adds nitrogen that is a natural fertilizer. Crabgrass was never described positively. I soon found out why. My crabgrass suffocated most of the lawn and squatted on the dirt in tufts. Come September, the remaining straggles of rye were pummeled and poisoned by walnuts falling from our neighbor’s tree. My well-intentioned crabgrass lawn looked like a minefield, accented by decomposing walnuts and the squirrels’ nutshells. Epic fail, as my fifth grader says. n Do you keep up with the neighbors, or keep it real? If I stand on my neighbor’s beautiful, if toxic, grass and look at mine, I am ashamed of my raggedy lawn and somewhat embarrassed at trying to keep up with the Joneses. But the only real shame is in holding forth on Earthfriendliness only to wimp out in the execution. My sister, Rebecca Lucas, a horticulturist in eastern North Carolina, had this simple advice: “The main thing is to grow good grass. Call your county extension service and find out what grows in

your area.” The right grass for local conditions should come in thick and, when mature and left at least 3 inches tall, block the weeds. Rebecca suggested cow manure for fertilizer — the country has too much of that anyway — and a pre-emergent herbicide in the spring, which prevents seed germination. Note: It will work on crabgrass, and also on my regular grass, so seeding at the same time doesn’t make sense. I guess a flawless lawn just doesn’t exist naturally, but good practices will minimize the need for chemicals. So this fall, we are starting over. We have handpulled the crabgrass; for such a ruthless invader, it gave up easily. The Cornell Cooperative Extension of Westchester County, N.Y., recommended a fescue blend instead, and in the spring I’ll get their advice on the safest herbicide. Their website contains a month-by-month problem-solving index. Here’s what I learned: Consult the experts, be realistic and try, try again. In a classic Internet moment, I discovered another project. It turns out that crabgrass seeds can be fermented. When life gives you crabgrass, make beer. Then start over.

children out. Do not store pesticides with paints or gas. For easy storage, store chemicals on plastic trays or pans. This will help keep them organized and catch leaks. Also, write down the date you opened the container on the container surface. If a leak or spill should occur, use an absorbent material such as cat litter to soak up the spill. Do not wash the area down with water. There may come a point where you need to dispose of some chemicals since the container is used up or to make room in your storage area. Dispose of pesticides as directed on the label. Lee County accepts pesticides for disposal, up to 5 gallons in size, in their original containers with the original label on Household Hazardous Waste and Pesticide Disposal Day. This year Household Hazardous Waste and

Pesticide Disposal Day is occurring on Saturday October 16 from 9 am to 1 pm at the Civic Center. When transporting pesticides, always check that the lid is closed tightly. Place pesticides in the trunk, if possible, on a piece of plastic in case of a spill. Do not place with food items. Secure the container, so that it will not shift during transit. If transporting in a pickup bed, cover with a tarp during rain. Drive carefully and directly to your destination. Proper use of pesticides is the law. Always read and follow the label carefully. Remember, pesticides work when used correctly. Most importantly, keep pesticides out of reach of children. For more information on pesticide use or Lee County Household Hazardous Waste and Pesticide Disposal Day, contact our Center at 775-5624.

Lighten up that cheesecake By JIM ROMANOFF For The Associated Press

A love of cheesecake is easily soured when you look at what goes into it. Many versions have 30 or even 40 grams of fat per slice and can call for a pound of full-fat cream cheese in addition to sour cream, half a dozen egg yolks and half a stick of butter, or more, in the crust. Fortunately, it is possible to make a healthier — yet still satisfying — cheesecake. It’s just a matter of choosing the right ingredients. This cafe mocha cheesecake is rich and velvety, yet has just twothirds of the fat and half the calories of traditionally-made versions. To lighten up the filling, full-fat cream cheese is swapped out for a mixture of pressed and pureed nonfat cottage cheese and reduced-fat Neufchatel cream cheese. An additional hit of creaminess comes from reduced-fat sour cream. For a rich, chocolaty flavor, cocoa powder is used instead of semisweet chocolate. Cocoa powder contains only a small fraction of the fat of chocolate. Instant espresso powder and coffee liqueur, such as Kahlua, are added to enhance the flavor of the chocolate. Finally, a light crust is made (without all the butter) by simply coating the

Like many healthy versions of indulgent foods it is all about choosing the right ingredients. This cafe mocha cheesecake does this by bringing in cottage cheese and reduced-fat cream cheese as well as other low fat options. bottom and sides of the pan with crushed chocolate wafer cookies. If you like, you could use plain or chocolate graham crackers instead.

CAFE MOCHA CHEESECAKE Start to finish: 1 hour 25 minutes (25 minutes active), plus 5 hours cooling time Servings: 16 6 chocolate wafer cookies or chocolate graham crackers 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/4 cups sugar 2 tablespoons instant espresso or dark roast coffee powder 2 1/2 tablespoons coffee liqueur, or water 2 cups nonfat cottage

cheese 1 1/3 cups reduced-fat sour cream 12 ounces Neufchatel (reduced-fat cream cheese) 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour 2 large eggs 2 large egg whites 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon salt Cocoa powder Heat the oven to 300 F. Coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray. With a rolling pin or the bottom of a heavy skillet, crush the cookies into fine crumbs. In a small bowl, stir together the cookie crumbs with 1 tablespoon of the sugar. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and tilt to coat the bottom and sides. Set aside. In a small bowl, dissolve the espresso powder in the liqueur or water and set aside. Place the cottage cheese in a double layer of cheesecloth and gather the corners at the top. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Place the drained cottage

cheese in a food processor and process until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the sour cream, Neufchatel, flour, eggs, egg whites, cocoa, cinnamon, salt and the remaining 1 1/4 cups sugar and the dissolved espresso powder. Process until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the edges are set 1 inch from the sides but the center of the cake is still a bit wobbly. Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake inside with the door closed for 30 minutes longer to continue cooking. Set the cheesecake on a wire rack to cool completely, about 1 hour. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before removing from the pan and serving. Just before serving, sprinkle lightly with cocoa powder.

posted the photo on her blog. The image went viral. “People saw them and went crazy,” Dudley says. “Everyone who had a blog and liked cupcakes posted the picture of those cupcake lollipops.” Dudley started making cake pops that looked like smiley faces, lambs, graduation caps, soccer balls, puppies and other insanely cute items. Today, she says, her blog gets nearly 3 million page views a month. While Dudley’s not ready to quit her day job, she does have some advice for fellow food bloggers who aspire to mega-fame: n Be Nice. “I spent a lot of time in the beginning answering every single person that left a comment,” she says. n Take good photos. “Most of the time people don’t read,” she says, “they just look at the pictures.” n Host those photos on a community site, like Flickr. If you post your photos on group sites, Dudley says, people will follow them to your blog. “I didn’t know that when I did it, but that was the result,” she says. n Comment on the blogs of others and they’ll start coming to yours to do the same. “I’ll see a name several times on my blog and I’ll go see their site, and if it interests me I’ll hang out there,” she says. n Over share. Spill all your secrets and all your tips. “The more you share, the more people respond,” she says.

BASIC CUPCAKE BITES These cake bites use a plastic candy mold to help transform round balls of cake into mini cupcake-like treats. And they are much easier to make than they look. The molds are widely available online, as well as at craft stores and baking supply shops. The candy melts usually can be found alongside the molds, but many grocers also carry a limited variety of colors. Feel free to substitute the colors of your choosing. Note that when handling the treats, the heat from your fingers can melt the chocolate. It’s a good idea to wear cloth candy gloves or other thin, clean gloves to prevent this. Start to finish: 3 hours Makes 48 cupcake bites Special equipment: Large plastic squeeze bottle (such as a clean ketchup bottle) Sheet of medium plastic candy cup molds (these resemble small muffin tins; each cup should be about 1 1/2 inches wide) Ingredients: 18 1/4-ounce box vanilla cake mix Eggs (as called for by the cake mix; most call for 3 eggs) Butter or vegetable oil (as called for by the cake mix) 12 ounces prepared frosting (any flavor) 3 pounds chocolate candy melts 1 1/2 pounds purple candy melts

Problem is, I kind of got used to having the desserts all to myself. Now, I have to learn to share again.

M&M’S or similarly shaped candy Candy sprinkles Heat the oven as directed by the cake mix directions. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with baking spray. Prepare the cake mix as directed, then pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake according to package directions, then let cool completely in the pan. Once the cake has cooled completely, break it into chunks and rub the chunks together between your hands over a large bowl to create crumbs. There should be no large crumbs. Add the frosting to the cake crumbs, then mix well. Divide and roll the mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls, arranging them on a waxed papercovered baking sheet. The cake ball should be slightly smaller than the width of the candy mold. Cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap, then place in the freezer for 15 minutes to make the balls firm, but not frozen. Meanwhile, place the chocolate candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium power for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between. Once melted, transfer the chocolate to a large plastic squeeze bottle. Use the squeeze bottle to fill one cup of the candy mold about halfway with chocolate coating. Immediately place a cake ball into the coating. Slowly push the cake ball down until the pressure causes the candy coating to force its way up the mold and fill in around the sides of the cake ball. You may have to experiment with a couple to get the right amount of chocolate coating. Stop pushing once the chocolate coating reaches the top edge of the candy mold, so that it doesn’t form a lip around the edge. Repeat for the remaining cups and cake balls. Set the filled candy mold tray onto a baking sheet to keep it from bending, then place in the freezer for 3 to 5 minutes to let the chocolate set. When making the balls as directed above, you likely will need to work in batches. If the squeeze bottle of chocolate melts becomes too thick to work with, microwave briefly. Remove the tray from the freezer and separate the cupcake bites from the candy mold. Twist the mold to loosen and pull on the exposed cake ball. Set aside and repeat with remaining balls. Place the purple candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium power for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between, until fully melted. Holding each cupcake bite by the flat bottom, dip the rounded top into the melted purple candy coating until it meets the edge of the chocolate coating. You can also use a toothpick to touch up any uncoated areas. Immediately decorate with 1 M&M (M-side down) on the top center of the purple side and some sprinkles, then return to a waxed paper-covered baking sheet to dry and set completely. Repeat with the remaining cupcake bites. Store in an airtight container on the counter or in the refrigerator for several days.

Filling: Mix together: 8 oz cream cheese, softened 1 egg 1/8 teaspoon salt 6 ounces chocolate chips Top each muffin cup with a heaping teaspoon of cream cheese filling before baking. Bake at 325 for 25 to 30 minutes.

BLACK BOTTOM CUPS 1 ½ cups flour 1 cup sugar ¼ cup cocoa 1 teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt Mix together above ingredients. Add: 1 cup water 1 tablespoon vinegar 1/3 cup oil 1 teaspoon vanilla Stir with dry ingredients until well blended. Fill foil muffin cups 1/3 to 1/2 full.

Frosting: 2 cups confectioners’ sugar 1/8 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 tablespoon milk ¼ cup softened butter 1 egg ¼ cup cocoa Mix ingredients together and frost. Yield: 18 cupcakes. **Frosting contains raw egg

Health insurance help for early retirees

DEAR SAVVY SENIOR: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read that Uncle Sam recently developed some new programs that can help early retirees who arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet eligible for Medicare, as well as high-risk uninsured people. What can you tell me about this? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; WANTING TO RETIRE

DEAR WANTING: For early retirees who arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t old enough for Medicare and who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford or donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t qualify for an individual health insurance policy, help is now available through two new programs. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you should know.

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

Early retirement help

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at retiring before youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re eligible for Medicare, the federal government recently developed a temporary new program called the Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP) that may help you keep your employerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health coverage. As part of the health care reform law, this new program will dole out $5 billion to employers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; public, private and nonprofit â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to help offset their costs of providing health care coverage for their early retirees ages 55 to 64 and their fami-

lies. The program began in July and will continue until Jan. 1, 2014 when health insurance reform kicks in. At that point youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to buy affordable health insurance from insurance exchanges, and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be turned down for pre-existing health conditions. Ask your benefits manager or human resources department about the ERRP. If, however, your employer is not offering early-retiree health coverage, you may be able to purchase an individual or family policy if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re healthy (see healthcare. gov or ehealthinsurance. com to search for policies and costs), or if your health isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so good, you can use the COBRA law.

Under COBRA, companies that employee 20 or more workers must let employees â&#x20AC;&#x201D; after they leave the job â&#x20AC;&#x201D; continue the same group coverage for themselves and their families for up to 18 months. But, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very expensive. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to pay the full monthly premium yourself, plus a 2 percent administrative fee. If you have COBRA coverage for at least 18 months (with no breaks in coverage for 63 days or more), youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll then qualify for rights under HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), another law that gives you the right to buy individual health insurance that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exclude or limit coverage for pre-existing medical conditions. Contact your state insurance department (find the number at or visit for details.

High-risk plans The second new government program you should know about is the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP). This program helps people who have pre-existing medical conditions that have been unable to get affordable health insurance. The PCIP, which is also a result of health care

reform, started in July and will run to 2014. To be eligible you must be a U.S. citizen or be residing here legally, be uninsured for at least six months, and show that you have had a problem getting insurance due to a preexisting condition. Currently, 35 states already offer high-risk health insurance pools (see to their residents with pre-existing conditions who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get coverage, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very expensive with premiums costing up to 200 percent the cost of private insurance. The new PCIP, which is available in every state, will run alongside the existing state pools but will provide better and more affordable coverage. While premiums will vary by state and are age-adjusted, those enrolled in a PCIP wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay more than a healthy person would pay in that state. A 50-year-old, for example, may pay between $320 and $570 per month. For more information on how the PCIP works in your state or to apply, go to or call your state department of insurance.

Congress to give blind better Web access

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The blind will have greater access to the Internet through smart phones, and devices such as iPhones and Blackberrys will have to be hearing aid compatible, under legislation Congress has sent to the president. Mark Richert of the American Foundation for the Blind said Wednesday that the measure was one of the most comprehensive bills in decades to improve access for the disabled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It breaks down barriers for all of us,â&#x20AC;? said Richert, who is blind. The video accessibility act passed the Senate last month and was approved by the House late Tuesday. The measure sets federal guidelines for the telecommunications industry assuring that the blind will have access to

the Web through improved user interfaces for smart phones. Also, over time, more than 60 hours a week of video programming must have audio descriptions. It will also: n Make TV program guides and selection menus accessible to people with vision loss. n Require that video programming devices such as MP3 players and digital video recorders be capable of closed captioning, video description and emergency alerts. n Require that remote controls have buttons to easily access the closed captioning on broadcast and pay TV. n Provide funds to help the low-income disabled buy accessible Internet technology. n Provide the deaf with the ability to watch

start. What We Liked Best: That the recipes are dietitian approved and tested in the Cooking Light Test Kitchen. They even had a baby and toddler tasting panel whose photos are in the book — cute! The Price: $19.95 retail, but is available for less online. Where to Buy: Most major bookstores, including and n Calorie Bargain: Cedarlane Stuffed Manicotti The Why: Cedarlane Stuffed Manicotti is a symphony of spinach and mozzarella, Parmesan and ricotta cheeses stuffed into manicotti pasta and covered with an authentic Italian red sauce. Even your children will love it. It’s quick to heat, low in cholesterol, high in protein and, most important, great tasting. One serving has 21 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. The Health Bonus: Spinach. It’s a great source of vitamins A, B2, C and K, as well as folate, potassium, magnesium, beta carotene and fiber. Spinach can help control blood pressure, keep blood vessels healthy, reduce cancer risk and slow the development of age–related eye damage. What We Liked Best: For a frozen dinner, the ingredients list is pretty clean — meaning words you can pronounce. What We Liked Least: High in saturated fat. What It Replaces: Frozen dinners that have lots of added chemicals. The Price: $4.49 per package. Where to Buy: www. Ingredients: Lasagna pasta (water, semolina wheat flour, egg whites), ricotta cheese (whey, skim milk, vinegar, xanthan gum, locust bean gum, guar gum), mozzarella cheese (pasteurized part-skim milk, cheese culture, salt, enzymes), spinach, water, tomato puree (vine-ripened tomatoes, salt and citric acid), onions, tomato diced in juice (whole tomatoes, tomato juice, salt, and trace of calcium salt), cream (pasteurized manufacturing cream, carrageenan), oil mix (canola oil, olive oil), wheat flour, non fat dry milk, milk, corn starch, basil, Parmesan cheese (pasteurized milk, cheese culture, salt, enzymes), salt, cane sugar, garlic, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano.

Antony Worrall Thompson, one of UK’s best–loved chefs and host of Daily Cooks Challenge, wrote this book after he developed diabetes. The recipes are inspired

by foods from around the world — Africa, Turkey, the Middle East, Latin America and South America, Southeast Asia and the Mediterranean. SPIbelt: If you’re an avid runner or biker, or simply going to the gym, you’ll love the SPIbelt — a new product to hold your belongings. It’s sleek, not bulky, fastens around your waist and has an expandable pocket big enough for your keys, phone, iPod or whatever else you need to carry around. It’s available for $19.95 at www.spibelt. com. Brain Armor: Not a big fish eater? If you’re active, Martek, the company responsible for creating omega–3 DHA from algae, has a brand new product specifically designed for athletes. Basically a souped–up version of their existing product line, Brain Armor delivers 1,050 milligrams of DHA per serving and helps ensure that the athlete has enough of this important omega–3 fatty acid to support brain and cardiovascular health. According to the company: “Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, is a naturally occurring, long– chain polyunsaturated omega–3 fatty acid found throughout the body. Scientists have discovered that DHA is incorporated into the membrane of every cell in the body and is especially concentrated in the gray matter of the brain, the retina of the eyes and heart tissue. DHA represents 97 percent of the omega–3s in the brain and 93 percent of the omega–3s in the eyes, playing an essential role in both brain and eye function. In these tissues, DHA is involved in neurotransmission, energy utilization and homeostasis. Emerging research suggests DHA supplementation benefits heart health by supporting normal triglyceride levels, heart rate and blood pressure. A growing body of research indicates that DHA is important throughout life for brain, eye and heart health.” A 60–day supply is about $50 from www. brain– SinuCleanse: Have you heard about nasal cleansing? I know it sounds weird, but it feels pretty good, and if you have allergies or you’re trying to improve your athletic performance, you might consider it. According to the folks at SinuCleanse, nasal washing improves athletic performance by “draining the sinuses with a saline solution to wash away constricting irritants, allergens and mucus. This allows air to exit and enter the nasal passageways efficiently. Nasal irrigation also helps to calm inflamed sinus and nasal tissue, making it easier to breathe. During aerobic exercise the body uses oxygen to help supply the energy needed for exercise. Breathing through the nostrils improves the quality of the air entering the lungs, putting it at the optimum temperature and humidity, optimizing lung performance. The more oxygen to the cells and muscles, the more one can sustain aerobic activity.” Try it for about $15 at
