By Luke Jones Republican Jonathan Dismang has been elected to State Senate in District 29. His opponent was Democrat Sandra Prater. Of course we’re excited and, to be honest, a little bit tired at this point,” DisMang Dismang said. “We’re looking forward to serving the people of District 29.” Dismang begins his work Thursday, and in the meantime, plans to spend time with his family. “My wife has been critical to my race,” he said. “I’ve sure appreciated her support.” He was satisfied with the race. “It was better than we could have imagined,” he said. “The support we received was incredible. We were humbled, so many people believed in us and our campaign.” Prater conceded to Dismang Tuesday evening. “I ran a positive race and I wouldn’t have run it any other way,” she said. “I congratulated Jonathan and I was glad he ran a positive race. I think it was a lot of anti-democrat sentiment, but I gave it my best shot.” Prater is looking to the future. “I enjoyed meeting a lot of really, really good people in this district,” she said. “I made a lot of new friends, friends I’ll

Gov. Beebe thanks Searcy voters after win

By Erica Sirratt Special to The Daily Citizen LITTLE ROCK — More than 250 people applauded as Gov. Mike Beebe walked onto the stage with his family to give his acceptance speech Tuesday night after winning his re-election bid over Jim Keet. Beebe spoke to his supporters at the Embassy Suites in Little Rock thanking all of them for their efforts and for the efforts of those that were not present. After his speech, Governor Beebe said a special thanks to the voters of Searcy. “I want to give a big thank you,” Beebe said, “White county launched me years ago on this journey that I’ve been on. I was in Searcy for all those years — I still am in Searcy; it became the place we call our home. Searcy launched me on my political career and I’m very grateful to the people associated with White county. They are my family.”

Election official Diane Thomas asks Gov. Mike Beebe if he had used an electronic voting machine before, drawing a smile from both. Beebe was voting at West Race Baptist Church at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. Warren Watkins/

Boozman beats Lincoln in senator race

By Andrew DeMillo The Associated Press LITTLE ROCK — Voters in Arkansas took out their frustration with the economy and health care Tuesday on Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln, electing the state's second Republican senator since Reconstruction. An Associated Press analysis of exit poll data showed that Lincoln was defeated by U.S. Rep. John Boozman, a five-term congressman, while Beebe beat Little Rock restaurateur and former legislator Jim Keet. Boozman had 56 percent of the vote with 44 percent of precincts reporting, while Beebe had nearly 66 percent of the vote with 41 percent of precincts reporting. In addition to toppling a U.S. senator they had targeted for at least two years, Republicans won a congressional seat in central Arkansas and took an early lead for a seat in eastern Arkansas — both held by retiring D[m7Zc_ii_ed(&& WALT DISNEY’S




Democrats. The change would mark Arkansas' greatest political shift since the 1870s. Lincoln was considered one of the most vulnerable incumbents in Washington after casting a key vote in support of a federal health care overhaul championed by President Barack Obama. In recent days, she appeared on television saying she didn't cast votes with her political future in mind and somberly acknowledged that many expected her to lose. Many voters who cast a ballot for Boozman cited Lincoln's support of the health care overhaul as their chief reason for opposing her. "He's about as bland as you can be, but he hasn't made me mad," said Fred Whitmore, a retired power company engineer from Little Rock who said he voted for Boozman after supporting Lincoln six

years ago. In his race, Beebe argued that Arkansas weathered the economic downturn better than most states. The state's unemployment rate is lower than the national average, and the state has avoided the massive cuts and layoffs faced elsewhere. The state also cut its sales tax on groceries while Beebe was governor. Before he took office, Beebe had been a state senator and attorney general. Election officials predicted 54 percent of Arkansas' 1.6 million registered voters would cast a ballot — the highest turnout for a nonpresidential election since the GOP won control of Congress in 1994. In central Arkansas, RepublicanTim Griffin defeated Democrat Joyce Elliott for the 2nd Congressional District seat being vacated by retiring Democratic Rep. Vic Snyder.

In east Arkansas, Republican Rick Crawford was leading Democrat Chad Causey 52 percent to 44 percent for the 1st Congressional District, with 35 percent of precincts reporting unofficial results. The two were running for the seat left open by retiring Democratic Rep. Marion Berry. The race could end up being one of the closest of the evening, with both national parties focusing heavily on the seat with advertising and get-out-the-vote efforts. In the race to replace Boozman in the 3rd Congressional District, Republican Steve Womack defeated Democrat David Whitaker. The state's only incumbent congressman seeking re-election, Democratic Rep. Mike Ross, is favored in his race against Republican Beth Anne Rankin in the 4th Congressional District.

Alderman arrested for stealing signs

By Warren Watkins A Beebe alderman has been arrested for stealing his opponent’s campaign signs. Alderman Leslie Cossey is opposed by James Rainbolt and Jonathan Gordon in his re-election bid for the Ward 3, Position 2 seat on the council. Aldermen are elected at large, not by ward, and run as independents. C o r p o r a l Cossey S t e v e Hernandez, public information officer for the White County Sheriff’s Office, confirmed Cossey’s arrest. “He was arrested about 4 a.m.,” Hernandez said at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. Polls opened in the general election at 7:30 a.m., but early voting has been ongoing for two weeks, seeing at least 5,000 cast ballots county-wide. “Apparently this is an ongoing thing between him and Jonathan Gordon,” Hernandez said. “About four this morning, Jonathan Gordon’s wife observed him with the signs in his coat so she called the Beebe Police Department and the Beebe Police Department got out there and he still had the signs tucked in his coat. My understanding is he never denied anything. They called their chief and because he is an active city council member they wanted us to handle it. Our deputy went out there and there’s not much you can say when the signs are still tucked in your coat. He was transported to the Beebe Police Department and issued a citation for theft of property and given $1,000 bond and bonded out there at the Beebe Police Department.” Hernandez said Cossey has been given a Dec. 9 court date in White County District Court, Beebe Division. Theft of property is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a $1,000 fine and one year in jail. “I caught him and he was taken to the Beebe Police Department,” said Rene Gordon, Jonathan Gordon’s wife. “Last night, my husband and a friend of his came to city hall to put signs up, and they did, because that’s where our voting poll is, one of them. I came back up there about 9:30 p.m.

and all six signs that were placed were gone. I drove around town checking on our other signs. The opponent, Les Cossey, saw me driving around and followed me back home. I went inside, waited about 10 minutes, and got into my husband’s vehicle. I drove down the street, which is near where Mr. Cossey lives, and he was walking up the street toward a friend of mine’s house that had several of our signs in his yard. I kept driving. I made a loop back around, turned off my lights and saw him peek around the corner, I guess to see if the car had gone. He didn’t come out for a few minutes so I turned my lights on and drove up to where I thought he was at and he was hiding in the bushes holding four Jonathan Gordon signs in his hand, folded. He had folded them up. I rolled down my window and called the police. I yelled at him, ‘I caught you, Les Cossey.’ The dispatcher sent two units over. He was walking in front of my vehicle with the signs folded up in his jacket. The police pulled up and stopped him and one officer talked to him and the other officer took my report. Two White County deputy sheriffs came to the scene and the chief of police of Beebe came to the scene. The White County Sheriff’s Office was there because there was a conflict of interest. The chief read Les Cossey’s statement and my statement and turned it over to White County. He also called the prosecuting attorney to find out what the charges were. The Beebe police officer told me they had turned it over and Corporal [Brandon] Grimes talked to me about what’s going to happen, and then the Beebe police left. Les Cossey was put in the back of the sheriff’s car. Officer Grimes returned my signs to me.” Attempts were made to reach Cossey at his home, which is also the office for Cossey Construction, but he could not be reached in reference to this article. Jonathan Gordon was asked if bad blood existed between him and Cossey before Cossey’s arrest. “No sir, I’m actually good friends with the man’s sons.” Gordon said. “I’ve not said one bad thing about him or anybody.”

Taking a closer look at presidential finalists


he three finalists for president of Arkansas State University have quite a generation gap. The youngest is about 37; the oldest is about 66. Both ages are estimates based on previous news reports because official information about candidates for a job doesn't give ages. But the third candidate lists his date of birth; he's 59. The youngest is Dr. Charles "Chuck" Welch, president of Henderson State University at Arkadelphia. The oldest is William B. Richardson Jr. of Baton Rouge, La., chancellor of the Louisiana State University Agricultural Center and a 1966 A-State graduate. Figuring he must have been about 22 then, he is about 66. Our "middle man" is Dr. Richard Federinko of Dadeville, Ala., senior vice president of student services and administration at Troy University. ... Welch has been in the ASU system previously. He was vice chancellor for academic affairs at ASU-Beebe from 2003-05. And his Facebook page shows another connection: He graduated from Jonesboro High School in 1991. The other two finalists were pretty far along on their career paths in 1991. But Welch, who earned his bachelor's degree in political science from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, was appointed chancellor of the UA Community College at Hope in 2005 and served there for three years before Henderson hired him. ... Richardson also has ASU ties, earning both bachelor's and master's degrees here before taking a Ph.D. in vocational education from the University of Missouri. ... That was just a starting place. His application to ASU and Curriculum Vitae covers 28 pages, more than double that of the other two finalists combined. I won't try to cover any more of that, but we're attaching all three applications below. ASU has strong competition for Richardson's services. He is one of three finalists for vice president for agriculture at UA-Fayetteville, which is nearing the completion of a nationwide search. .. I haven't found any Arkansas connections for Federinko, but he also has an impressive resume, including stints as president of three 2-year colleges before taking his present position. A Troy news release dated Sept. 27 announced that he was retiring effective Oct. 1, but he has told ASU officials that he is staying on there until Dec. 31 to aid in the transition and wants another presidency before he retires. ... Federinko and Richardson will be interviewed by the trustees next Monday, Welch the next day. Each will be invited to speak publicly first, then will be interviewed jointly by the board and Presidential Search Advisory Committee. Any discussion by the board can be held in closed session. The trustees would like to have a new president by the end of the year for the position, which pays $225,000 annually. So let's hope these top candidates are as strong as they look on paper. ... — The Jonesboro Sun

Today in history

Today is Wednesday, Nov. 3, the 307th day of 2010. There are 58 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History: On Nov. 3, 1900, the first major U.S. automobile show opened at New York's Madison Square Garden under the auspices of the Automobile Club of America. On this date: In 1839, the first Opium War between China and Britain broke out. In 1852, Japan's Emperor Meiji (may-jee) was born in Kyoto. In 1936, President Franklin D. Roosevelt won a landslide election victory over Republican challenger Alfred M. "Alf" Landon. In 1957, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 2, the second manmade satellite, into orbit; on board was a dog named Laika (LY'-

kah) who was sacrificed in the experiment. In 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson soundly defeated Republican Barry Goldwater to win a White House term in his own right. In 1960, the Meredith Willson musical "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" opened on Broadway with Tammy Grimes in the title role. In 1970, Salvador Allende (ah-YEN'-day) was inaugurated as president of Chile. In 1979, five Communist Workers Party members were killed in a clash with heavily armed Ku Klux Klansmen and neo-Nazis during an anti-Klan protest in Greensboro, N.C. In 1986, the Iran-Contra affair began to come to light as Ash-Shiraa, a pro-Syrian Lebanese magazine, first broke the story of U.S. arms sales to Iran.

Long trip to first vote

y the time you read this column, written before voting ended, Arkansans will have gone to the polls or chosen not to. Grace Morrissey was hoping to be among those who voted. A native of El Salvador, Grace had come to America with her two children in 2002 on a work visa, gotten a job and eventually obtained permanent residency status in hopes of becoming a citizen. She married an American, Mark, which a lot of people probably would assume would make her a citizen automatically. It didn’t. In fact, it slowed the process. According to Grace, becoming a citizen is a lot harder than it used to be. Since 2002, she has completed too many government forms to count, all of them warning that failure to respond in a timely manner would end the process for her. Fearful of some important form getting lost in the mail, she had the Immigration and Naturalization Service send two copies of each letter — one to her, and one to her immigration lawyer. Yes, the lawyer. In order



to complete the process, Grace hired an attorney. In fact, she estimates that she spent $10,000 through the years on all the various expenses associated with becoming a citizen. That includes the gas she burned driving from her home in Beebe or from her office in Little Rock to the nearest Immigration and Naturalization Service office in Memphis, often to be fingerprinted and photographed. She went so often that she jokes her car now could make the trip on automatic pilot. Sometimes she went just to be sure she wasn’t making a mistake completing the forms. “When you called the immigration number, any time you called, you talked with a different person, and they don’t tell you the same thing,” she said. “You call the

same day and ask the same question. One is going to tell you one thing, and one is going to tell you another one. And then you don’t want to risk it, and you just drive to Memphis and ask questions.” Grace was asked questions as well. At her final interview, she was required to pass a test in English to make sure she understood basic facts about American history and government. She also answered questions orally, also in English. It was during this interview that she learned the first time that she would be required to renounce her El Salvadoran citizenship. “Some people think that you have dual nationality,” she said. “It doesn’t happen here. I mean, you totally lose your previous one and embrace American citizenship‚ which I said I agreed, and I’m proud of it, too. I mean, the United States is a wonderful nation.” Grace was told her case would go before a panel and then was kept waiting another three weeks until she learned that she and her children would become American citizens. On Sept. 17, she raised

her right hand with about 100 other new Americans and swore an oath of allegiance to this country. She recited the Pledge of Allegiance, and, for the first time, sang the national anthem that was now hers as much as it is yours and mine. It was, she said, “a very emotional moment when you analyze the implications. It’s like being reborn.” Grace completed a voter registration form soon afterwards but hadn’t heard from her county clerk’s office at the time of our interview. She planned to go to the polls Tuesday with her husband to see if the registration process was completed on time. If so, she would vote for the first time, knowing in ways most of us don’t, that freedom really isn’t free and isn’t even cheap. For most voters that day, it cost an hour or two out of their busy lives. For Grace, it cost eight years and $10,000. Steve Brawner is a former newspaper editor and a former aide to former Gov.

Free-speech war

The national, sharply discordant aftermath of NPR’s firing of Juan Williams continues with the possibility it may lead Congress to cut government funding of not only National Public Radio, but also the Public Broadcasting System and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. But what if the heads of NPR were removed, and more Americans across party lines realized how much they would lose if PBS and NPR would clearly show the record of their continuous independence under present partial government funding? I will show some of that valuable record. Here, as of this writing, is the panicked state of the top NPR current management led by president and CEO Vivian Schiller. She handled the Juan Williams expulsion with the finesse of Joe Biden’s ad-libbing. I telephoned a first-rate NPR reporter and news analyst who, like his other colleagues, has never been accused of political bias. When I asked what he thought of Williams’ termination, there was an embarrassed silence — and then: “I’m not allowed to say anything about that.” On National — Public — Radio, opinions are now as classified as the CIA’s? Not to be silenced, as the Oct. 23 Washington Post reported, were senders of “thousands of e-mails and phone calls” to NPR’s Washington headquarters, “The majority expressing outrage.” And NPR station affiliates around the country were disturbed by the firing’s impact on NPR’s Pledge Week. On Nov. 11, there will be an NPR board meeting, and the current clueless CEO may be looking for a new job. In any case, this furor has led to a strong movement among some leading Republicans in the House to cut off any government funding from all public radio and television on the ground that no taxpayer money should subsidize any news media, especially controlled by biased liberals. Syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin bluntly summarized this attitude among some other


Americans as well: “Not one more red cent of public money should go to NPR, PBS and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.” (New York Post, Oct. 23). I heard directly from readers who agree with her and the congressional cutters after my column last week on the firing of Juan Williams — so independent that while he was at NPR and also guesting at Fox News, he angered some Fox News analysts during panel discussions by rebutting their views. Among the scalding e-mails to me from readers appalled at my trying to retain government partial support of NPR and PBS, there was also an accusation — just one line — that I had made this reader ashamed to be Jewish. Please let me know, dear reader, just how this proud Jew did that? A clear, rational response to this shouting to free the taxpayers came from Michael Meyers, executive director of the New York Civil Rights Coalition -- the most independent news analyst I’ve ever known. He said (New York Daily News, October 22): “Withdrawal of public dollars ... would only strangle independent voices on public radio, and ... television.” Such independent voices as PBS’s “Frontline,” which singularly continues — and often exceeds — the penetrating journalism standards of CBS’ Edward R. Murrow. National and global in scope, utterly free of political correctness, “Frontline,” for example, has documented attacks on our civil liberties by both the Bush and Obama administrations. NPR, a primary focus of my own columns is the rescuing of our consti-

tutional liberties, and NPR’s straight reporting continually gives me leads to check out and validate for further research. I know of no other news source equal to NPR, for example, in tracking government (past and present) contempt for our Fourth Amendment protections from government unconstitutional searches and seizures of our private personal information. This has resulted in the Fourth Amendment now being on life support. Williams’ firing by a vaporous CEO, who makes me wonder how she ever got that job in the first place, has cleared the air — not for the Michelle Malkins and certain House Republicans — but for those of us who know how much we would lose if NPR were seriously weakened. An Oct. 29 New York Times editorial, “The Noise About Public Radio,” speaks urgently of “the worst possible outcome of (this) clumsy contretemps.” The surge of accusations about bias and unfairness at NPR and PBS ignore these “vitally important sources of information in the nation’s cacophonous democracy.” The editorial makes the often missed point that the 797 NPR member stations around the country — “which played no role in the firing — rely on federal support for about 10 percent of their annual budgets, $90 million in all.” That’s no small amount, as indicated by the importance to those stations of the pledge weeks, which also ask for what they have to pay NPR for certain programming on a subscription basis. “Anyone who listens regularly to NPR news and its local stations,” the Times concludes, “can hear the due diligence to fairness in its reports. Any cutback in federal support would hurt the American public.” I hope those members of Congress of either party who listen often to NPR, its local stations and PBS will act accordingly.

Cousin’s wedding invitations brings up past


EAR ABBY: A male cousin sent me an invitation to his wedding. I have met his fiancee a few times at family reunions and weddings, and she seems very sweet. The problem is my cousin sexually abused me for many years when I was younger. I have no desire to attend his wedding. Am I obligated to send a card or a gift? I don’t want his fiancee to think I don’t like her, but it makes me sick to think of celebrating his marriage after what he did. What do I say when other family members ask why I’m not going? Am I obligated to tell her what he did? NEEDS TO KNOW IN TEXAS DEAR NEEDS TO KNOW: A young man who sexually abuses someone “for years� is a predator.

AbiGAil VAn buren deAr Abby

And while the news may not be greeted warmly, you should say something to your cousin’s fiancee before she marries him. You could benefit from talking to a counselor who specializes in sexual abuse to make sure the effects of what happened to you don’t affect you in the future. The counselor can help you decide what to do from there. If you don’t attend the wedding, you are under no obligation to

Two women close to my age, plus one college-age girl, are trying to pursue me. I’m afraid if I don’t leave this area, Margaret will allege that I left her for one of them. Your thoughts, please. KEEPING MUM IN CLEVELAND

DEAR ABBY: I could never figure out why “Margaret,� my wife of 20 years, married me. After our wedding she tried to give me an image makeover. She’d buy me clothes I left hanging in the closet. She’d contradict and correct me in public. In general, she’d find fault with almost everything I did. She put me down often, and if I reacted, she would either claim it wasn’t what she meant to say or tell me, “You do it, too.� I finally gave up and left her. Margaret has an excellent reputation, so people try to pry into why I left her. When I tell them I won’t bad-mouth her, they tell me she says plenty about me. My response is, “Then you know all there is to know, don’t you?�

DEAR KEEPING MUM: You didn’t mention how long ago your marriage ended or whether your divorce is final. But regardless, aren’t you tired of worrying about what your ex is saying about you? The marriage is over — kaput! A move isn’t necessary. An effective way to ensure that no one spreads a rumor that you left Margaret for one woman would be to spend time being seen dating all of them. DEAR ABBY: My husband

and I have been together for two years, and he still doesn’t know my mother’s last name (it’s different from my maiden name), nor does he know the names of all of my siblings. He doesn’t think it’s a big deal. What is your opinion? NAME GAME IN KNOXVILLE, TENN. DEAR NAME GAME: Either your husband is not much of a family man or he’s not detail-oriented. Remembering someone’s name is a sign of respect, and it appears your husband of two years has little of that for your family.

Reader feels vitamin D column needs major clarification DEAR DR. GOTT: I read about how much vitamin D to take from your Sept. 30 column. In the information about research on D, you state it is linked to thyroid disorders, hypertension, stroke, diabetes, heart failure and colon cancer, among other things. I have read vitamin D fights off these disorders, not contribute to them. Was this a misprint?

DEAR READER: In essence, yes it was. The article should have indicated, “As research unfolds and theories are validated, deficiency is thought to be linked to thyroid disorders ...� The word “deficiency� did not appear in print. I spoke of insufficient amounts of D at the beginning of the paragraph, but the way the information appeared would lead a person to think just as you did. Thank you for pointing this out. It’s readers like you who keep me on my toes, and I’m grateful you took the time to write. DEAR DR. GOTT: You recently wrote about lichen planus and gold as a risk factor. I’ve had lichen planus for more than five years, and you

dr. Peter Gott

are the only reference I’ve encountered that claims gold could be a problem. I have two gold bridges and two gold caps. Could these be contributing factors? DEAR READER: This inflammatory condition can affect skin and mucous membranes. When on the skin, it resembles raised, flat bumps or lesions that are itchy and somewhat purple in color. They can crust or scab, resembling poison ivy or other forms of plant dermatitis. When mucus membranes of the mouth are affected, white patches that resemble lace can appear and be quite painful. Lichen planus occurs when the immune system attacks the cells of the skin or mucus membranes. As I previously reported, triggers can include allergens, tattoo pigments, specific medications for hypertension,

arthritis or heart disease, and the use of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen and naproxen. One source of information for the gold connection I reported on is Medline Plus, which states that risks include “exposure to medications, dyes and other chemical substances (including gold, antibiotics, arsenic, iodides, chloroquine, quinacrine, quinide, phenothiazines and diuretics).� Furthermore, an Oct. 1, 2010, New York Times article indicated a risk of lichen planus from gold. There have been reports of gold caps causing the breakout, but I cannot find sufficient legitimate documentation to support this. Therefore, I suggest you return to your dentist for his or her opinion.

Attendees can receive oneon-one counseling about their personal education needs or the needs of their family members and friends.

Bald Knob chief of police retires

Animal shelter receives grant, still making strides

By Julie Kohl Special to The Daily Citizen BALD KNOB â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The city has an interim police chief after the chief of police retired. Assistant Police Chief Tim Sanford was appointed as the interim police chief and Chris Calhoun as assistant chief at the city council meeting Monday night. Chief Larry Landis resigned last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was going to retire at the end of the year,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Bob Carpenter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said he was ready to go and had enough vacation days saved up so he could go ahead and leave.â&#x20AC;? The move prompted a restructuring of the force by the council and a look at the current pay scale for the department with approval of new pay rates. Sanford will receive $15 per hour for Sanford and Calhoun $12 per hour with a 50-cent raise at their 90-day review. The council approved the request for officer Stephanie Vaughn to receive K9 training at a school in Little Rock. Vaughn is currently working with the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s K9 unit and

BaLd KnoB city counciL Next meeting: 6 p.m. dec. 6 Location: Bald Knob City Hall

the training will give her the certification needed to continue as the K9 unit officer for the city. Her pay scale was approved at $11.50 per hour with a fifty cent raise at 90 days. Regular officers will receive $10 per hour, animal control $9 per hour and dispatch $8.50 per hour each with a 50 cent raise possible after a 90-day trial period. In other business, the animal shelter is being improved, according to alderman Chuck Bradford, who reported that a lot of positive things are continuing to happen with the Bald Knob Animal Shelter on Liberty Valley Road, a non-profit shelter run by the city. Bradford indicated that the shelter had received a $100 grant from Wal-Mart which will be used towards the purchase of an additional 10 x 10 kennel to house some of the puppies. Bradford also mentioned that winterizing of the shelter building has been completed. The shelter is working with several area vet clinics and the South Arkansas Pet Adoption to see that all animals in

their care are receiving all of their shots, are being spayed and neutered and are being placed in the best possible homes. The clinic is also seeking short-term foster homes to house animals after surgery and permanent adoptive homes for pets. The current adoption fee is $60. The Bald Knob Animal Shelter is open to many different kinds of donations. Monetary Donations can be made to Tammy Wools at city hall. Other donations and adoption arrangements can be made by contacting Anita Bradford at (501) 281-3689. Two faulty fire hydrants will be replaced in the city at a cost of $1,500 each. The old fire hydrants will be saved and used for parts in the event other hydrants need to have repairs made. A laptop will be purchased for the court clerk as recommended by the judge at a cost of $1,300 and the city will also purchase a software program to aid in determining building specifications and certification documents needed for individuals wishing to build in any flood plain areas in Bald Knob. The next scheduled meeting of the council will be 6 p.m. Dec. 6 at the Bald Knob City Hall.

HARding AcAdEmy looks AHEAd to plAyoffs

Hogs work to eliminate penalties

By Robbie Neiswanger Arkansas News Bureau Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett glanced up at the scoreboard in the fourth quarter last Saturday night and was surprised by what he saw. It had nothing to do with Arkansas’ point total, its passing yards, or, even how few yards Vanderbilt had compiled. Instead, Mallett noticed the penalties. “That’s a lot of penalties,” Mallett said. “I didn’t realize we had that many penalties. That’s the little things that we always talk about we can’t do because it’s going to hurt us. So we’ve just got to look at it and see what we did and work on that. “We’ve definitely got to eliminate them, though.” Arkansas finished with 13 penalties, which tied a season-high set previously in the win against Texas A&M. The mistakes totaled 130 penalty yards as well, drawing obvious disappointment from coach Bobby Petrino after an otherwise solid night. Petrino said after the game it was the team’s “number one” negative. He added more Monday, when asked how Arkansas planned to eliminate the mistakes. “We just work at it,” Petrino said. “Work on our discipline, our communication and practice hard.” Arkansas is the most penalized team in the Southeastern Conference, committing 71 infractions for 593 yards. Its penalty yards a game (74.3) is 20 more than Auburn, which ranks 11th in the league (53.8). The Razorbacks’ offense was responsible for nine of the 13 mistakes against the Commodores.

Wildcats hold strong at No. 1


By Annette Whitehead he Wildcats already get to look forward to a No. 1 spot in the playoffs going into their last regular season game. Harding Academy boasts an overall record of 8-1, with its only loss coming in week two of nonconference play against Heber Springs. The Wildcats latest win was last week when they traveled to Brinkley and dominated the game, with a final score of 48-6. “Brinkley has struggled all year,” said head coach Roddy Mote. “We were able to play everybody. We had a solid performance early.” Senior quarterback Seth Keese said the team played well, but could’ve done a few things better. “The defense played pretty good,” he said. “It was a good performance. There are things we need to work on. We turned the ball over too much. But a win’s a win.” Harding’s final regular season game will be played at home

“Every play can make a difference." SETh kEESE

Harding Academy quarterback regarding getting ready for the playoffs.

Thursday against Rose Bud, a team with a 2-7 record. Coach Mote said Rose Bud’s record doesn’t matter. “We want to perform well against Rose Bud,” he said. “We want to perform well every time we play. It doesn’t make a difference who you play.” Keese said those thoughts are the same as the players’. “Every game, the goal is to get better,” he said. “We always try to improve, no matter who we’re playing.” Even with one more game, the Wildcats are looking ahead to the postseason. “We want to finish strong and go into the playoffs and play well,” Mote said. “We feel good about the position we’re in. We’re looking to compete in the playoffs. We’re ready to compete at our best.”

The Wildcats’ first playoff game will be at home on Nov. 19. “We’ll have two weeks to prepare,” Mote said. “We’ll polish things we’re not doing well during the biweek. We’ll practice in our normal routine Monday through Thursday. Thursday’s workout will be heavier than normal. They’ll have Friday off. Then we’ll go into our typical game week.” Mote said they’ll continue working on the basics. “We’ll get better at fundamentals during the extra week,” he said. “We’ll try to take advantage of the extra time. We want to tackle strong and take care of the ball and we’ll try and create turnovers.” Keese said the team has confidence and focus. “We feel good,” he said. “We’ll work on tackling, ball security and get our pass routes down. We’ll try and make everything perfect; make it the way it should be and practice like we’re playing. The coach pushes us about playing fast. We’ll work on

being as fast as we can and going to the right place.” Mote said his team has been fortunate to not be dealing with any injuries, other than the “normal bumps and bruises,” but says they’ll take the extra time to heal. As a senior, Keese is playing his final games at Harding Academy. He said he tries to lead his team by example. “I try to practice what I preach,” he said. “If I see someone slacking, I have to check myself before I say something. I could never respect someone who doesn’t do as they say.” Keese said it’s good to have the home field advantage heading into the playoffs. “The game has to be played no matter what,” he said. “But it’ll be fun at home. If we win, all our games will be at home. Playing at home always helps. We always have a big crowd and we’re used to the turf. Some teams aren’t used to that.” “We’ll come to play,” Keese said. “Hopefully we’ll be at the peak of our performance. Every play can make a difference.”

Razorbacks’ Horton steps up

By Robbie Neiswanger Arkansas News Bureau FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas freshman receiver Julian Horton couldn’t figure out why he wasn’t redshirting. Through the first few weeks, Horton hadn’t done much in Arkansas’ offense. He was practicing hard and playing on special teams, but was felt there was no hope of catching passes with an assortment of veterans ahead of him. Junior Jarius Wright grinned about the conversa-

tion he had with Horton as the two walked off the practice field Tuesday. That’s because the freshman got a welcomed dose of reality against Vanderbilt, when he caught two passes for 59 yards in place of injured receiver Joe Adams. “He told me he wasn’t expecting to play this season,” Wright said. “This is the SEC, though. Everything doesn’t go as planned and everything isn’t perfect. People do get hurt and people do drop out. That’s when we need other reliable players to

step in and take their place.” Arkansas’ depth has been checked already this season with offensive stars like Adams, Ryan Mallett and Dennis Johnson all missing time with injuries. Another test comes Saturday at No. 18 South Carolina with leading receiver Greg Childs out because of a patella tendon injury. Adams is still on the mend, too, although he is optimistic he’ll play against the Gamecocks. Childs’ absence is the type of blow capable of crippling an attack.

Lady Bisons defeat Henderson State 3-1

By Nathan Looney Special to The Daily Citizen ARKADELPHIA – Freshman outside hitter Mollie Arnold had a career-high 27 kills as the Harding volleyball team defeated Henderson State 3-1 in Gulf South Conference action on Tuesday. Harding improved to 16-10 on the season and 9-2 in the GSC West Division. With one match remaining in the regular season, Harding currently sits in the second spot in the GSC West Division. Arkansas Tech defeated ArkansasMonticello also on Tuesday to wrap up the No. 1 seed and win the West Division. Harding will have to defeat Ouachita Baptist on Thursday to capture the No. 2 seed in the upcoming conference tournament on Nov. 12-13. Sophomore outside hitter Bailee Graham was the only other Lady Bison to end in double-figure kills as she tied a career high with 13. Harding had a great defensive night, ending with 86 digs. Senior defensive specialist Emily Tate had her fourth career match with more than 30 digs as she ended with 33. Sophomore setter Amber Schinzing had a career-high 16 digs for the Lady Bisons. Arnold ended with 14

digs, picking up her 13th career doubledouble. Schinzing controlled the Lady Bison offense with 51 assists in the match. It was the fourth time in her career she has had over 50 assists. Henderson State outhit Harding. The Lady Bisons had 64 kills on 174 attempts with 30 errors for a .195 hitting percentage. Henderson State (14-12, 5-6 GSC West Division) had 49 kills on 151 attempts with 15 errors for a .225 hitting percentage. It was the second time this season Harding has been outhit by their opponent but has still walked away with the victory.

Loss of Greg Childs hurts Razorbacks bad


ITTLE ROCK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Reviewing Bobby Petrinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list of candidates to make plays in lieu of Greg Childs, one image kept getting in the way. It was Childs, as graceful as Texas shortstop Elvis Andrus going behind second base to field a grounder, reaching down to snag a zinger from Ryan Mallett at the Ole Miss goal line. For someone who is 6foot-3 like Childs, grabbing a knee-high pass while in full stride is difficult. The junior receiver has become so adept at his craft that you expect him to catch everything and he does. A year ago, Childs led Arkansas with 48 catches, but he occasionally dropped one that he should have caught. This year, he has been brilliant and consistent. And, on passes over the middle, he could be counted on to turn upfield in pursuit of additional yardage. In fact, he was doing just such a thing when he was injured against Vanderbilt. With 46 catches so far and five games to play, Childs had dead aim on J.J. Meadorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; school record of 62 catches in one season. The question is whether Cobi Hamilton, or Chris Gragg, or one of Arkansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; promising freshmen can get the job done against South Carolina on Saturday night. Addressing Childsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; status on Monday, Petrino was highly complimentary of the receiver from Warren and admitted that Arkansas will have to replace him â&#x20AC;&#x153;with a number of people.â&#x20AC;?


The speedy Hamilton made a spectacular catch against the sideline in the fourth quarter of the Ole Miss game, but it is Childsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; catches in traffic for 10 or 12 yards that are so valuable. A secret weapon of sorts, Gragg has caught three passes all year for a total of 111 yards. Childs was the starter for a reason. Like everybody else on the first unit, he is better than the player on the second unit. His absence might prompt Petrino to make adjustments. If so, the coach can and will. One of the subplots on Saturday was going to be Childs vs. Alshon Jeffery, the leading receiver in the Southeastern Conference with 52 catches for 935 yards. It was Jeffery who turned a short pass into a 70-yard touchdown that broke a 24-24 tie with Tennessee last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what impact, game-changing players do,â&#x20AC;? said Tennessee coach Derek Dooley. Jeffery suffered a slight knee sprain against the Vols but is expected to play. For Arkansas, the one consolation about losing Childs is that pass defense is not a strength of South Carolina. For instance, in the Gamecocksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 31-28 loss at

Kentucky, the Wildcats had fourth-and-7 at the South Carolina 24 in the final minutes when Mike Hartline faked a slant to Chris Matthews. The defense bit and Randall Cobb was wide open at the goal. Hartline does not have Mallettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arm nor Mallettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s receivers, but he was 32-of-42 for 349 vs. the Gamecocks. Three times in the last four games, South Carolina opponents have thrown for more than 300 yards, including Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 312 last week. Twice, backup quarterback Tyler Bray completed passes of more than 60 yards. Cornerback Chris Culliver, a senior starter, will miss the Arkansas game with a shoulder injury. South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier said Mallett and his teammates â&#x20AC;&#x153;have got to be licking their chops when they see tape of our last several games.â&#x20AC;? For sure, if Childs was available.

Game postponed for safety concerns

By Brian Mahoney The Associated Press NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Orlando Magic-New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden was postponed Tuesday because of safety concerns after debris fell into the arena during overnight cleaning of asbestos-related materials. The work was done by maintenance staff in the attic above the ceiling following the New York Rangers' game and prevented workers from laying down the hardwood floor. The ice surface was still down as of Tuesday afternoon. Saying it was using "an abundance of caution," MSG released a statement saying it consulted with the NBA and decided to postpone the game, and wouldn't reopen the building until it was assured the arena was safe. "We will be working with the city and independent

experts, ATC Associates and GCI Environmental Advisory, to evaluate and determine the most appropriate course of action," the statement said. "As the safety of our customers and employees are our top priority, we will not reopen the Garden until we are absolutely assured the arena is safe." Calls to the two agencies were not immediately returned. No makeup date has been announced. MSG said it would announce information about future events once they have been determined. The Knicks are scheduled to play at home against Washington

on Friday. The arena will host Roger Waters: The Wall Live on Saturday, and the Knicks and Rangers will play a doubleheader Sunday. Opened in February 1968 and known as "Garden IV," the Garden is in the early stages of a renovation that began last summer. It's expected to cost between $775 and $850 million, with extensive work slated for the summers of 2011 and 2012. It's the second recent arena-related postponement for the Magic. The exhibition game against Miami that was scheduled for the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa, Fla., was canceled because of slippery court conditions after arena officials said an oilbased cleaning solution was mistakenly applied. The Knicks told ticket holders to retain their tickets and to check the team's website,, for rescheduling information.

By Chris Jenkins The Associated Press MILWAUKEE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Milwaukee Brewers have hired Los A n g e l e s Angels bench coach Ron Roenicke to be their new manager, a person with knowledge of the situa- Roenicke tion told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The person requested anonymity because the team has not yet announced the move. An announcement could come this week. The 54-year-old Roenicke has been a member of the

Angels' coaching staff for the past 11 seasons, including the past five as bench coach. He was seen as a long shot candidate in the Brewers' search to replace Ken Macha, who was fired after two disappointing seasons. The Chicago Sun-Times first reported the hiring. Other reported candidates for the Brewers' job were Chicago White Sox bench coach Joey Cora, former New York Mets manager Bobby Valentine and former Seattle Mariners and Arizona Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin. Roenicke has never been a full-time major league manager, but has subbed for Mike Scioscia on occasion when

the Angels manager was away from the team. Roenicke was the Angels' third base coach for his first six seasons with club and became bench coach when Joe Maddon left to become Tampa Bay's manager. He began his coaching career with the Los Angeles Dodgers and went on to coach in the minor leagues, including five seasons as a manager. Roenicke also played for six major league teams over eight seasons. He was a career .238 hitter with 17 homers and 113 RBIs in 527 games. He reached the postseason in 1984 as a member of the NL champion San Diego Padres.

Reunion ends as Vikings cut ties

By Dave Campbell The Associated Press EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In his last act with Minnesota, Randy Moss stepped to a podium to fawn over the New England Patriots, criticize the Vikings for ignoring his strategic advice, and announce his plan to interview himself the rest of the season instead of letting reporters do it. So much for that boost to Brett Favre's passing attack. Moss's second go-round in Minnesota was far less successful than the first, not to mention swift and, simply, bizarre. After four games and three disappointing losses, coach Brad Childress showed Moss who was boss by telling Vikings players in a team meeting Monday afternoon the six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver was being let go. "This decision was made based on what we thought was in the best interests of the Minnesota Vikings, both in the short and long term," Childress said several hours later in a team-issued statement. "We wish Randy the best as he moves forward in his career." Just four weeks ago, Moss was gushing about his return to Minnesota, where he looked forward to seeing those purple No. 84 jerseys in the crowd more than five years after the Vikings first dumped him in a trade. The deal that brought him back last month from the Patriots cost the Vikings (2-5) a third-round draft pick and more than $1.5 million for

those four games. "I was shocked by it a little bit, but again I think it was something we have to stand behind," linebacker Ben Leber said, adding: "I'm not sure what the motivation was or what they're thinking, but it certainly is a surprise when you think you trade for a guy a couple weeks ago and then release him a few weeks later." Moss, who was fined $25,000 last week for failing to cooperate with the media and make himself regularly available for interviews, hugged several former Patriots teammates as well as coach Bill Belichick on the field Sunday after the Vikings lost 28-18. Then Moss repeatedly expressed admiration for Belichick and his players while chiding the Vikings for not paying enough attention to his tips on how to play the AFC East leaders in the runup to the game. "I know how hard these guys work here in New England, and the only thing that I really tried to do was

take what the best coach in football history has brought upon me, or the knowledge that he has given me about the game of football, and I try to just sprinkle it off to the guys the best way I know how," Moss said. Moss had one catch for 8 yards against the Patriots, giving him a four-game total of 13 receptions, 174 yards and two touchdowns. "I'm definitely down that we lost this game. I didn't expect we'd lose this game," Moss said. "I don't know how many more times I'll be in New England again. But I leave coach Belichick and those guys with a salute: 'I love you guys. I miss you. I'm out.'" Childress didn't mention the move when he talked to reporters Monday and said Moss was staying in the Boston area for a few days to spend time with family. Asked whether he regretted acquiring Moss, the coach said "not at present." Moss's contract called for a $6.4 million base salary this season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; leaving the Vikings on the hook for at least $1.5 million. If Moss is claimed on waivers, the team that signs him is responsible for the remainder of his salary. If he clears waivers, then he can sign as a free agent under new terms. Claiming priority is based on inverse order of the current standings, so the Patriots â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who lead the league at 6-1 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; would be last. Belichick declined comment Monday.

Moore is 2-time unanimous preseason All-America

By Doug Feinberg The Associated Press Maya Moore has proven throughout her career at Connecticut that she is in a class by herself. On Tuesday, the UConn senior became the second player to be a two-time unanimous choice on The Associated Press' women's basket- Moore ball preseason All-America team, receiving all 40 votes from a national media panel. "Wow, that is really something special," said Moore, who joined Duke's Alana Beard in that select club. "It's such an honor." Moore was joined on the preseason squad by Baylor's Brittney Griner (36 votes), Stanford's Nnemkadi Ogwumike (34), Ohio State's Jantel Lavender (21) and Oklahoma's Danielle Robinson (18). Moore has already made the postseason All-America team in her first three years and was the AP's player of the year as a sophomore. She averaged 18.9 points and 8.3 rebounds last season in helping UConn to a second straight 39-0 record. The Huskies are again No. 1 in the preseason poll. "I would be hard pressed to find somebody who's had a better career than that at Connecticut or anywhere else for that matter," UConn coach Geno Auriemma said. Last season, Moore became the seventh unanimous choice, joining Courtney Paris, Chamique Holdsclaw, Diana Taurasi, Beard, Seimone Augustus and Candace Parker. Moore also became the fifth threetime selection on the preseason team, which began in 1994. Griner may be the next member of that group. She burst onto the national scene last season as a freshman. She broke the NCAA record for blocks and helped Baylor reach the Final Four. The 6-foot-8 star changes the game on both ends of the court. "I thought she handled herself beautifully as a freshman," Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. "She's a bet-

ter offensive rebounder, has gotten stronger and understands the intensity level that you need at this level." Griner is only the second Baylor player ever to earn preseason honors, joining Sophia Young in 2005. Ogwumike led Stanford to the national championship game last season. She scored 38 points in the semifinal win over Oklahoma and averaged 18.5 on the season, earning Pac-10 player of the year honors. The junior had 9.9 rebounds per game.

"This is well-deserved recognition for Nneka to be named a preseason AllAmerican," Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer said. "Nneka is a great leader and unselfish team player here at Stanford, and she has only continued to improve heading into her junior season." Robinson averaged 16.8 points and 5.3 assists as a junior last season. The 5-9 guard shot 84 percent from the free throw line and 47 percent from the field.

Is it as easy as it seemed?

By Phillip Alder A.N. Onymous said, “It’s easy to stop making mistakes. Just stop having ideas.” This column emanated from an idea I had about yesterday’s deal. In that column, West had a singleton diamond king. South, in three no-trump, took the first trick with dummy’s club queen and ran

the diamond 10. This cost the contract because when West shifted to a spade, declarer had to win with dummy’s ace (else East would win the trick and return a club for down two) and take a second diamond finesse. This worked, but West discarded, leaving South with only seven tricks: one spade, three hearts, two diamonds and one club. The winning play was a low diamond to the eight, nine or jack on the first round of the suit. Then, when in the dummy with the spade ace, declarer could have run the diamond 10, staying in the dummy to take a third finesse in the suit. I started to wonder about this layout. Suppose, after leading a low diamond to the jack, West -- the genius -- played low. (Since he expects South to repeat the finesse, this would usually be the best play.) How should declarer continue now? In the auction, three clubs is artificial, asking opener if he has three spades. South must guess. If East started with honor-doubleton, declarer must cash the diamond ace and play another diamond. But if West has king-doubleton, South must continue with a low diamond. Finally, if West has queen-doubleton, the contract can no longer be made -- declarer had to run the diamond 10 at trick two! Nothing is as easy as it seems.

Make adjustments as to what went wrong, and you won’t repeat any mistakes. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - Financial matters should not be treated indifferently at this juncture.

Stocks rise on Election Day, Dow near high the past two weeks but failed to close above that level each time. Small companies performed especially well. The Russell 2000, the index that tracks the performance of smaller corporations, jumped 2 percent to 712.89. The index is up nearly 14 percent for the year, roughly double the return of the Dow and the broad Standard and Poor's 500 index. Uncertainty over the effects

By David K. Randall and Stephen Bernard The Associated Press NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Major stock indexes rose Tuesday as investors awaited the results of Congressional elections, putting the Dow Jones industrial average near its highest point of the year. The Dow Jones industrial average rose more than 60 points. The Dow has now traded above its 2010 closing high of 11,205 four times over

of the midterm elections and the size of the Federal Reserve's expected stimulus program due Wednesday have kept the market from ending with either big gains or losses in recent days. Eric Thorne, an investment adviser with Bryn Mawr Trust Wealth Management, said many traders have been using the end of the day to take short-term profits. With the economy still looking weak, there's no guarantee stocks

will continue to climb. An expected win for Republicans in the House of Representatives could set up a scenario that leads to gridlock in Congress, meaning there could be a slowdown in new government spending and regulatory reform. Exactly how the election will play out is still uncertain, which is part of the reason stocks have wavered recently. Analysts say companies have avoided hiring new

workers because of questions surrounding taxes and costs associated with health care and financial regulatory overhauls. Election results could provide some more clarity about those issues. High unemployment remains one of the biggest obstacles to a strong recovery. The government said last week that the gross domestic product, the broadest measure of the nation's economy, grew at a 2 percent annual rate dur-

ing the third quarter. That's well short of what is needed to create a significant amount of jobs. Traders are also waiting for the Federal Reserve to wrap up a meeting where it is expected to announce plans to stimulate the economy. There is uncertainty about exactly how big a bond-buying program the Fed will announce, which has also tempered movements in stocks in recent days.

Stocks BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oil spill costs grow, Gulf residents react THE MARKET IN REVIEW By Brian Skoloff and Jane Wardell The Associated Press BILOXI, Miss. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; BP PLC is once again reporting profits even with an estimated $40 billion price tag for the response to its blown out well in the Gulf of Mexico. In this waterfront city, where many lost their livelihoods to the summer of oil, a mixture of relief and melancholy greeted the news Tuesday. A financially healthy BP means jobs and compensa-

tion, but residents still reeling from the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history are waiting for some good news of their own. BP said that costs related to the April 20 oil spill dragged down its third-quarter profit by more than 60 percent. The London-based company earned $1.79 billion from July through September, compared with $5.3 billion a year earlier. But the fact that BP returned to profits at all, coming after a loss of $17.2 billion in the
