After the ice: ‘We were lucky’ Sun’s return in forecast for Tuesday By Pamela Hitchins phitchins@vicksburgpost.com

Officials in Vicksburg and Warren County, along with neighboring counties and Louisiana parishes, were breathing easier this morning after a storm expected to drop nearly an inch of ice on roads, trees and power lines passed through Sunday with conditions much better than predicted. “It was not nearly as bad as what we had expected,” Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said this morning. “We were about 2 degrees away from a major ice storm,” said Entergy spokesman Don Arnold. “We were lucky.” No electrical outages were

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court today refused to hear a challenge against a federal law making it illegal for criminals to own bulletproof vests. The appeal had questioned Congress’ lawmaking ability under the Commerce Clause. The high court refused to hear arguments from Cedrick B. Alderman, who was convicted under a federal law making it illegal for convicted criminals to own body armor that has been sold across state lines. Congress passed that law in 2002, citing its authority under the Commerce Clause to regulate interstate commerce. Alderman was convicted of armed robbery in 1999. Police caught him with a bulletproof vest in 2005, and he was sentenced to prison for 18 months. Alderman challenged the law, saying it exceeded Congress’ power to regulate interstate commerce under the Commerce Clause. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld the conviction and sentence. The Supreme Court refused to hear Alderman’s appeal. Justice Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia said they would have heard the case. Not hearing the case “threatens the proper limits on Congress’ commerce power and may allow Congress to exercise police powers that our Constitution reserves to the states,” See Criminals, Page A9.

MDOT chief Brown says he’ll retire in June NATCHEZ (AP) — Larry “Butch” Brown says he’ll retire in June as executive director of the Mississippi Department of Transportation. Brown had a news conference scheduled for today in Jackson to make the announcement. He said that he would leave the post at the end of June. “I’ve been there for eight years longer than I said I would stay,” Brown said. His health is also a concern, said Brown. He is battling prostate cancer for the third time. Doctors at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Hous-

ton, Texas, will perform surgery Jan. 21. Tests will then be done to determine if the cancer has spread, Brown said. Larry “Butch” “ I ’ ve g o t Brown good confidence in my team (of doctors),” he said. The 67-year-old Brown said he chose the June 30 retirement date to allow time to finish projects he’s started and to coincide with the end of the state’s fiscal year. Brown faced an uncertain future with MDOT. Trans-

portation Commissioner Bill Minor, a Brown ally, died Nov. 1 and special election was scheduled for Tuesday in the northern district to replace him. Many of the candidates in that race had called for a change of leadership at MDOT. In addition, Southern D i st r i c t Co m m i s s i o n e r Wayne Brown, no relation, announced in December he would not seek re-election. And Butch Brown has often been at odds with Central District Transportation Commissioner Dick Hall. Hall and others have criticized him for excessive

spending, travel and management style. Two years after Brown’s 2002 confirmation as MDOT director for the first time, he was fired by a vote of the commissioners. He was reinstated six weeks later when a new commissioner took office. He has served since that date. In November, Brown agreed to anger management classes and, in return, the city of Biloxi will drop a public intoxication charge. He was arrested at the Beau Rivage Casino in July. Brown said the incident was a misunderstanding and he was neither drunk nor disorderly.

At his confirmation hearing in 2009, Brown defended his use of department stationery to write letters in 2004 and 2006 asking the state Parole Board to release Douglas Hodgkin, who was convicted of capital murder in the death of a University of Mississippi student who was raped, sodomized and strangled in Oxford in 1986. Brown said he sent the letters because he knows and likes Hodgkins’ father, a banker in Kentucky. Brown was mayor of Natchez for eight years before accepting the MDOT job.

‘A sub-criminal culture’

Meth flourishes despite tracking laws ST. LOUIS (AP) — At the height of the methamphetamine epidemic, several states turned to a new weapon to disrupt the drug trade: electronic systems that could track sales of the cold medicine used to make meth. Tracking sales by computer allowed pharmacies to check instantly whether a buyer had already purchased the legal limit of pseudoephedrine — a step that was supposed to make it harder to obtain raw ingredients for meth. But an Associated Press analysis of federal data reveals that the practice has not only failed to curb the meth trade, which is growing again after a brief decline. It also created a vast and highly lucrative market for profiteers to buy over-the-counter pills and sell them to meth producers at a huge markup. In just a few years, the lure of such easy money has drawn thousands of new people into the methamphetamine underworld. “It’s almost like a sub-criminal culture,” said Gary Boggs, an agent at the Drug Enforcement Administration. “You’ll see them with a GPS unit set up in a van with a list of every single pharmacy or retail outlet. They’ll spend the entire week going store to store and buying to the limit.”

The associated press

Police officer Justin Sparks arrests a man for having drug paraphernalia after the man attempted to purchase an overthe-counter cold medication containing pseudoephedrine in Fenton, Mo. Inside their vehicles, the socalled “pill brokers” punch out blister packs into a bucket and even clip coupons, Boggs said. In some cases, the pill-buyers are not interested in meth. They might be homeless people recruited off the street or even college kids seeking weekend beer money, authorities said. But because of booming demand created in large part by the tracking systems, they can buy a box of pills for $7 to $8 and sell it for $40 or $50. The tracking systems “invite more people into the criminal activity because the black market price of the product

becomes so much more profitable,” said Jason Grellner, a detective in hard-hit Franklin County, Mo., about 40 miles west of St. Louis. “Where else can you make a 750 percent profit in 45 minutes?” asked Grellner, former president of the Missouri Narcotics Officers Association. In Mississippi, a 6-monthold law requires a prescription for the purchase of cold and sinus medicine containing pseudoephedrine. Since tracking laws were enacted beginning in 2006, the number of meth busts nationwide has started climbing again. Some experts say the black market for cold pills con-

7 districts in Mississippi involved in conducting kindergarten surveys HATTIESBURG (AP) — Seven school districts in Forrest, Lamar and Perry counties have been selected as pilot sites for an early development survey that will measure how ready students are for kindergarten. The districts collectively make up one of 11 sites in the United States to be the first to use the surveys. The surveys will be used to identify the cognitive and developmental skills children attending kindergarten may be lacking when they come to school. The survey is a 104-item questionnaire filled out by kindergarten teachers on each child in classes. The questions cover areas that educational research shows are foundations for success in school, life and work. Some examples of the questions on the survey are: • Do you feel this child is overweight or underweight? • Would you say this child knows how to handle a book, e.g. turn a page? • Would you say this child shows tolerance to someone who made a mistake? • Since the beginning of the school year, has the parent/ guardian volunteered in the classroom or on a field trip or

The idea behind the surveys is to help communities find out where their vulnerable children are and what they can do about it, said Dan Kibodeaux, executive director of the United Way of Southeast Mississippi, which helped secure funding for the surveys. classroom project? The idea behind the surveys is to help communities find out where their vulnerable children are and what they can do about it, said Dan Kibodeaux, executive director of the United Way of Southeast Mississippi, which helped secure funding for the surveys. “One of the overall goals we’re trying to get to with an early development instrument is to point out the community’s issues and to start the discussion of what the community needs to do about it,” he said. “This isn’t about one school doing better than another. It’s about how we as a community are doing to help our families prepare their children for

school.” The Hattiesburg school board recently approved the use of the surveys in the Hattiesburg Public School District. Surveys will be given to about 450 children this spring. Petal School District already has conducted more than 300 surveys in its kindergarten classes. Surveys will be conducted in 2012 in Forrest County, Lamar County, Lumberton, Perry County and Richton school districts. “This is an excellent opportunity for all of us,” Forrest County School District Superintendent Debbie Burt said. “We’ve always thought that education is a community responsibility. We’d be happy to participate.” Overall, the survey measures five areas, according to Kibodeaux: physical health and well-being, social competence, emotional maturity, language and cognitive development, and communication skills and general knowledge. “This is important,” Kibodeaux said. “If we’re starting to measure the failure of children in the third grade, we can tie that back to kindergarten. But you can’t wait until they’re 17. You have to start early.”

tributed to that spike. Other factors are at play, too, such as meth trafficking by Mexican cartels and new methods for making small amounts of meth. The AP reviewed DEA data spanning nearly a decade, from 2000 to 2009, and conducted interviews with a wide array of police and government officials. Meth-related activity is on the rise again nationally, up 34 percent in 2009, the year with the most recent figures. That number includes arrests, seizures of the drug and the discovery of abandoned methproduction sites. The increase was higher in the three states that have electronically tracked sales of medication containing pseudoephedrine since at least 2008. Meth incidents rose a combined 67 percent in those states — 34 percent in Arkansas, 65 percent in Kentucky and 164 percent in Oklahoma. Supporters of tracking say the numbers have spiked because the system makes it easier for police to find people who participate in meth production. But others question whether the tracking has helped make the problem worse by creating a new class of criminals that police must pursue.

Ex-House leader DeLay faces sentencing today AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who with the nickname “the Hammer” took part in his share of political battles during his time in Congress, now faces the toughest fight of his life: staying out of prison. The former Houston-area congressman will be back in court today for the sentencing phase of his trial after his Nov. 24 conviction on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering in a scheme to illegally funnel corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002. Unlike DeLay’s trial, which lasted nearly a month, the sentencing hearing is expected to take about two days. DeLay has chosen Senior Judge Pat Priest to sentence him. Priest says he is likely to make a quick decision after both prosecutors and defense attorneys finish presenting witnesses. While he faces up to life in prison on the money laundering charge and up to 20 years on the conspiracy charge, DeLay is also eligible for probation. “Of course we will ask the judge to grant probation,” said Dick DeGuerin, DeLay’s lead attorney. “This is not a matter of economic loss, not a matter of anyone being injured or of any evil intent.” Up to nine witnesses are expected to testify on DeLay’s

behalf, including former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert and others who worked with him. “ We a r e Tom going to show DeLay the good things about Tom DeLay,” DeGuerin said. DeLay’s lawyers also submitted more than 30 character and support letters from friends and political leaders, including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and eight current U.S. congressmen. Most of the letters ask for leniency in the sentencing. Steve Brand, one of the prosecutors, said they planned on calling several witnesses. He declined to comment on what the witnesses would testify about or what sentence the Travis County District Attorney’s Office planned to request. Some legal experts believe DeLay will likely receive little, if any, prison time. “Diehard Democrats will want to see the book thrown at him and his conservative supporters will feel (any) sentence will be unjust,” said Bradley Simon, a New York criminal defense attorney who’s followed the case. “No matter what the judge says, he is unlikely to please anybody.”

What will the GOP do now As a new Congress reflecting the will of the voters as of November finally assumed office last week, with Republicans holding a majority in the House and more effective power in the Senate, we can expect both symbolic gestures and a few substantive moves in the direction of less-intrusive government. Whether legislators will move much beyond symbolism may not be known for several months. Republican symbolism begins with a relatively low-key induction — compared with the more grandiose changing of the guard with Nancy Pelosi in 2006 and Newt Gingrich in 1994 — of Ohio Rep. John Boehner as speaker of the House. Rep. Boehner has not sought the media spotlight since November and vows to keep the focus on party and principle rather than himself. The incoming chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Fred Upton of Michigan, has also promised a vote

before the State of the Union message, set for Jan. 25, to repeal Obamacare, the expansion of the government role in health care passed last year. While a majority-Republican House might pass repeal, and could well bring along a few Democrats for the ride, this would be almost entirely symbolic. A Democratic-majority Senate would not approve it, and even if it did, President Barack Obama would veto it. On opening day, Thursday, the full U.S. Constitution will be read aloud on the House floor — a symbolic gesture unless it induces real understanding of the importance of enumerated (not unlimited) powers the Constitution grants the government. A vote to cut congressional office spending by 5 percent is also largely symbolic. The $25 million such a cut is expected to save may seem like a lot to some, but in the context of overall federal spending it is a pittance.

30 YEARS AGO: 1981

Potentially less purely symbolic are Republican promises to cut about $100 billion in a planned $477 billion in domestic discretionary spending. The biggest proposed items are $12 billion of the president’s “stimulus” bill that hasn’t been spent yet, much of it for high-speed rail, and cuts in foreign aid and food stamps. House Republicans could also use threats of spending cuts to thwart regulatory initiatives. The best gauge of whether Republicans are serious on spending will be whether they are willing to entertain cuts in the nation’s military budget and overseas commitments as well as domestic spending. Color us doubtful. Throw in investigations of past Obama decisions and a possible showdown in March on the federal debt limit, and it could be an eventful congressional session. Whether it will lead to smaller government is another question.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler

Vote could end lengthy Miss. voter ID debate The long-running legislative debate over requiring photo identification at Mississippi polling places could end come November. Legislators have received a petition initiative calling for a statewide referendum on the issue in the Nov. 8 general election. Elections for governor, lieutenant governor and other statewide offices also will be on the ballot, along with two other initiatives — an anti-abortion proposal and one restricting the government’s eminent domain authority. Republican organizers, led by Sen. Joey Fillingane of Petal, spent about a year collecting signatures for the voter ID petition, and Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann determined that 131,678 signatures of registered voters were collected. Only 89,285 were needed. The proposal will be on the ballot, but what remains to be seen is whether lawmakers want to add alternate language to compete with the ini-

Voter ID has been a hot-button issue at the Capitol for a couple of decades. Some would argue it’s been an effective race-baiting tool, allowing all legislators to appeal to their base.

tiative. Talk around the Capitol last week indicated that was unlikely. “It will be on the ballot and we won’t have that legislative battle anymore. I wish we could have gotten it done legislatively, but for whatever reason, political or otherwise, we didn’t. This is a good way for people to be comfortable about the outcome,” said Senate Elections Committee Chairman Terry Burton, R-Newton. Rep. Tommy Reynolds, D-Charleston, who chairs the House Elections Committee, said there’s no need to offer another proposal without

strong sentiment to do so from legislators. Voter ID has been a hot-button issue at the Capitol for a couple of decades. Some would argue it’s been an effective race-baiting tool, allowing all legislators to appeal to their base. The issue is mostly pushed by Republicans, though some Democrats support it. Proponents say the measure could reduce fraud at the polls. Opponents say there’s no substantial proof of widespread fraud during elections. Some lawmakers also argue the requirement would place a hardship on the poor, elderly and disabled.

Of course, Mississippi’s history is another point altogether. Black legislators cite the racial oppression of the Jim Crow era and contend photo ID is tantamount to the poll taxes of long ago. Sen. David Jordan, D-Greenwood, said there should be more sensitivity over the fact “blood was shed for the right to vote.” If the measure passes in November, Reynolds said there will likely be fallout. He cited the situation in Georgia, where a new voter ID law is being challenged in the courts by the Democratic Party of Georgia. The Georgia Democrats claim the requirement violates the Georgia Constitution, which gives everyone an “absolute right” to vote as long as they meet the required qualifications. Mississippi already has seen some court action on the issue. In May 2008, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a ruling that would have forced Mississippians to register by political party and to show

photo identification at the polls to be able to vote. Part of U.S. District Judge Allen Pepper’s 2007 ruling had ordered the state to enact a voter identification law in time for the 2009 elections. Pepper’s ruling came in a suit brought by the Mississippi Democratic Party, which sought to keep nonparty members from voting in its primaries. The Democrats appealed his order to the 5th Circuit. They were joined in that appeal by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the state and the Mississippi Republican Party. Rep. Bryant Clark, D-Pickens, said there will be an education campaign launched to fight the initiative long before this fall’s general election. Without such a campaign, “voter ID appears to be a done deal if it goes to a vote in the climate in Mississippi right now,” Bryant said. • Shelia Byrd is based in Jackson and covers state stories for The Associated Press.

Study: Spacing babies close might raise autism risk CHICAGO (AP) — Close birth spacing might put a second-born child at higher risk for autism, suggests a preliminary study based on more than a half-million California children. Children born less than two years after their siblings were considerably more likely to have an autism diagnosis compared to those born after at least three years. The sooner the second child was conceived the greater the likelihood of that child later

being diagnosed with autism. The effect was found for parents of all ages, decreasing the chance that it was older parents and not the birth spacing behind the higher risk. “That was pretty shocking to us, to be honest,” said senior author Peter Bearman of Columbia University in New York. The researchers took into account other risk factors for autism and still saw the effect of birth spacing. “No matter what we did, whether we were looking at

autism severity, looking at age, or looking at all the various dimensions we could think of, we couldn’t get rid of this finding,” Bearman said. Still, he said more studies are needed to confirm the birth spacing link. Closely spaced births are increasing in the United States because women are delaying childbirth and because of unplanned pregnancies. Government data show the number of closely spaced births — where babies are less than two years apart — is rising, from 11

percent of all births in 1995 to 18 percent in 2002. The study, appearing today in the journal Pediatrics, comes just days after a new report further tarnished a British researcher’s 1998 paper linking vaccines to autism, this time calling the paper a fraud based on altered facts. Bearman contrasted the new research to what he called the “junk science” behind the notion that vaccines cause autism. “One of the things that leads

people to think that junk science is science is the idea that science solves all problems with a single bullet,” Bearman said. Instead, “science is very slow and proceeds in steps.” Reasons behind the birth spacing-autism link aren’t clear. It could be that parents are more likely to notice developmental problems when siblings are very close in age, Bearman said. When 2-yearold Billy isn’t developing like 3-year-old Bobby, parents might be more likely to seek

help. Or biological factors could be at play, he said. Pregnancy depletes a mother’s nutrients like folate, a B vitamin found in leafy green vegetables, citrus fruit and dried beans. Prior research has tied close birth spacing to low birth weights and prematurity, possibly because of lack of folate. “And it could be a combination of effects, not a single explanation but a combination of dynamics,” Bearman said.

Feline scrutiny

New rules might increase Cats get sick when stressed, study says patients on home dialysis LOS ANGELES (AP) — It’s not just people who get sick from stress. A recent Ohio State University study found that healthy cats show signs of illness when stressed. At the same time, cats diagnosed with feline interstitial cystitis became healthier when stress levels were reduced, the study showed. Twelve of 32 cats in the 3-year study were healthy and 20 had FIC, a chronic pain syndrome that affects the cat’s bladder. Lower urinary tract diseases occur in about 1.5 percent of house cats, the researchers said, and a lot of pet owners can’t stand the messes that come with it, so millions of sick cats are euthanized or turned over to shelters every year. The owners of the sick cats at OSU had all decided to have their pets euthanized, but agreed to let them take part in the study first. Doctoral candidate Judi Stella; Tony Buffington, a professor of veterinary clinical sciences; and Linda Lord, an assistant professor in the school’s Department of Veterinary Preventive Medicine, observed the colony of neutered and spayed cats at the university’s research lab. Stella spent the first part of the study trying to make every aspect of each cat’s life the same — their cages, litter boxes, food, music, toys, time spent with the other cats and time spent with her and a caretaker. “I had to be careful if I was having a bad day,” she said, so it didn’t rub off on the cats. “This study shows that an enriched environment — one that includes hiding areas, toys, bedding and other physical features, plus an everyday routine including a consistent caregiver, feeding and play

The significance is that minimizing stress can decrease illness,” said veterinarian and feline expert Jane Brunt, a member of the CATalyst Council, Inc. in Timonium, Md., and owner of Cat Hospital at Towson for over 20 years. The study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, was published in the Jan. 1 issue of the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Human diseases similar to interstitial cystitis include irritable bowel syndrome and fibromyalgia, said Buffington, who also works with stress researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles’ Center for Neurobiology of Stress. When the cats were sick or stressed, they would vomit, urinate or defecate outside

euthanasia. “Cats are not a pack species. They are not used to living in large groups. Their two primary predators are larger carnivores and primates and so who do they live with? Dogs and people. It can be tough being a cat,” Buffington said. Research conducted by Buffington in 2006 found similar health improvements when cat owners enriched home environments for their pets. “Cat owners can be educated about managing and maintaining an enriched environment,” Brunt said. “Several parallel human studies are corroborated by this and other feline studies, indicating that stress and disease are linked.”

the litter box and eat less, the OSU researchers said. Stress to a cat might be nothing more than unwanted attention, a dirty litter box or a strange noise, Stella said. During stress-free times, both healthy and affected cats got sick less than once a week. During weeks when routines were altered, causing stress, the healthy cats got sick about 1.9 times a week and the others twice a week, nearly tripling the risk for sickness in all the cats. Levels returned to normal when the stress passed, Buffington said. For now, the researchers hope cat owners and vets will look at a sick cat’s environment before opting for

Tragedy in Tucson 9-year-old victim was aspiring politician TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Christina Taylor Green’s patriotism was inspired by a tragedy on her birth date — Sept. 11, 2001. Another national tragedy took the third-grader’s life. Christina was shot and killed Saturday, along with five other people killed outside a supermarket where a neighbor had taken her to meet Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. “She was all about helping people and being involved. It’s so tragic,” Roxanne Green said. Christina “She went to Taylor Green learn ... and then someone with so much hatred in their heart took the lives of innocent people.” The brown-eyed athletic 9-year-old girl was an aspiring politician and had just been elected to the student council at Tucson’s Mesa Verde Elementary School. She loved to swim with her 11-year-old brother Dallas, her only sibling. Her mother, Roxanna Green, said that Christina loved animals, singing, dancing and gymnastics. She also had hopes of being the first woman to play major league baseball. She was featured in a book

The associated press

Megan Lopez, left, and Judith Mindlin pay their respects at a makeshift memorial outside U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ office Sunday in Tucson, Ariz. called “Faces of Hope” that chronicled one baby from each state born on the day terrorists killed nearly 3,000 people. The author, Christine Naman of Monroeville, Pa., said Sunday that Christina playing a role in both events

was “somehow particularly tragic.” “I can’t believe how a beautiful young life was taken in such an awful, awful way,” Naman said. The girl already had told her parents she wanted to attend

Penn State and have a career that involved helping those less fortunate than her. She was the only girl on her Canyon del Oro Little League baseball team and played second base. John Green said his daughter wanted to be the first woman to play major league baseball. The game was in her blood. Her dad is a scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers and her grandfather, former big league pitcher Dallas Green, managed the 1980 world champion Philadelphia Phillies. “She was a strong girl, a very good athlete,” Roxanna Green said. “She was interested in everything. She got a guitar for Christmas so her next thing was learning to play guitar.” John Green remembers making his daughter an omelet with bacon and cheese for breakfast Saturday morning and kissing her goodbye as the neighbor took her to the event to meet Giffords. Hours later, John Green was at University Medical Center with his wife and son, with a doctor telling them the girl he called “Princess” was dead from a gunshot wound to the chest. The unidentified neighbor was shot four times but survived and is recovering from surgery.

Much time could pass before extent of brain damage seen TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Recovering from a gunshot wound to the head depends on the bullet’s path, and while doctors are optimistic about Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ odds, it can take weeks to months to tell the damage. Doctors say the bullet traveled the length of the left side of the Arizona congresswoman’s brain, entering the back of the skull and exiting the front. Fortunately, it stayed on one side of her brain, not hitting the so-called “eloquent areas” in the brain’s center where such wounds almost always prove fatal. Importantly, Giffords was responding nonverbally Sunday to simple commands in the emergency room — things like “squeeze my hand.” That implies “a very high level of functioning in the brain,” said Dr. Michael Lemole of Tucson’s University Medical Center, Giffords’ neurosurgeon. Now, her biggest threat is brain swelling. Surgeons removed half of her skull to give the tissues room to expand, Lemole said. That bone is being preserved and can be reimplanted once the swelling abates, a technique the military uses with war injuries, added his colleague and trauma surgeon

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Dr. Peter Rhee. Adding to Giffords’ good prospects is that paramedics got her to the operating room in 38 minutes, her doctors said. She is being kept in a medically induced coma, deep sedation that rests her brain. It requires a ventilator, meaning she cannot speak. Doctors periodically lift her sedation to do tests and said she responds well to commands. The brain’s left side controls speech abilities and the movement and sensation of the body’s right side, Lemole noted. But he wouldn’t speculate on lasting damage, saying, “we’ve seen the full gamut” in such trauma.

Less worried about layoffs, jobholders spending more WASHINGTON (AP) — A steady decline in layoffs is giving the vast majority of adults who have jobs the confidence to spend more freely and help energize the economy. They no longer worry so much about losing their jobs. Their renewed confidence has boosted retail sales — just what’s needed to spark what economists call a “virtuous cycle”: Higher consumer spending raises company profits, which spurs hiring, which fuels more spending and growth. Consumer spending is critical because it powers about 70 percent of the economy. It rose for five straight months through November, kicking off the strongest holiday shopping season since 2006. Many shoppers are showing enough

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke echoed that point Friday. He told a Senate panel he sees evidence that a “self-sustaining” recovery is taking hold because consumers and businesses are spending more.

Suspicious package in D.C. slows morning commuters WASHINGTON (AP) — A suspicious package that disrupted commuters headed to the Capitol today was not a threat, investigators concluded. Sgt. Kimberly Schneider, Capitol Police spokeswoman, said the package was deemed suspicious when detected by a bomb-sniffing dog. Investigators x-rayed the package and determined it was not a hazard, she said. The Capitol South Metro station, which is about two blocks from the Capitol building, had been closed because of the package and was reopened. Riders trying to leave the station were directed to other

stations. Others were later allowed to take an elevator and exit about a block from where the package was found. Janet I t wa s n ’ t Napolitano clear whether additional precautions were being taken because of the shooting Saturday of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Also, suspicious packages ignited late last week at D.C.-area postal processing centers, and one of them was addressed to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

Morgan Stanley economists say 4 percent growth is “likely, perhaps even conservative” in 2011, up from an estimated 3.1 percent last year. Late this month, the government will estimate economic growth for the final quarter of 2010. Consumer spending is rising because the vast majority of working-age Americans are now breathing easier, despite 9.4 percent unemployment. People who had jobs feared being laid off during the recession, which ended in June 2009, and for months after. Fewer worry now, because most companies haing staff.

Workers who survived the job cuts of the past three years have begun to conclude: “If they haven’t fired me by now, they’re no” says Michael Koskuba, portfolio manager with Victory Capital Management. By October 2010, layoffs and other dismissals had sunk to their lowest point since August 2006. In December, employers added just 103,000 jobs — too few even to keep up with population growth. But that was mainly because they’re still reluctant to hire, not because they’re still cutting jobs.

Obama, French president to talk global economics WASHINGTON (AP) — French President Nicolas Sarkozy plans on working to make some changes in the global financial system, and at a White House meeting today he plans to press President Barack Obama to join him.

Arctic blast coats South in treacherous snow, ice ATLANTA (AP) — Stranded vehicles littered roadsides this morning as several inches of snow and sleet coated Atlanta and other parts of the South, freezing the morning commute in many areas and canceling thousands of flights at the world’s busiest airport. Sleet, ice and several inches of snow — as much as 9 inches in some places — blanketed states from Louisiana to the Carolinas mostly unaccustomed to arctic weather and caused at least one death in Louisiana. In Atlanta, under 3 to 4 inches of snow and ice, state officials were forced to move today’s inauguration of newly elected Gov. Nathan Deal from the state Capitol steps inside to the shelter of the House chamber. The inaugural gala was scrapped to keep supporters off treacherous roads. The winter weather began rolling across the South on Sunday, coating bridges and roads with snow, sleet and freezing rain. The governors

several cities, including up to 3 inches in parts of Atlanta, which rarely gets so much. In Alabama, roads were coated with ice in Shelby

County, just south of Birmingham, where Waffle House waitress Stephanie McGougin served eggs and grits to the few diners who could make

it inside early today. There were plenty of empty seats at the restaurant, which is normally busy but was virtually deserted. “I think we’re about the only place open,” McGougin said. Despite officials imploring people to stay off the roads, interstates around Atlanta were clogged with cars early today. Georgia was expecting up to 6 inches in the northern mountains from the powerful storm that also dumped snow and ice in Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas. Forecasters said the front could also bring sleet and freezing rain lasting into Tuesday in Georgia. Highway crews were working to keep major roads passable. Unlike other times when an inch or two of snow coats the ground, temperatures were not expected above freezing into Tuesday, so it won’t melt.

sippi Highway Safety Patrol. No major injuries were reported. “During the night, we had several limbs down but all were able to be moved by deputies without having to call the county road crews,” Pace said. “We had bridges throughout the county and roadways in the north part of the county icing over.” Some of the icing remained on roads and bridges this morning, Pace said. All local schools, public and private, were closed today, including day classes at all six campuses of Hinds Community College, which was set to begin the spring semester today. But a decision had not been made yet this morning about tonight’s classes, said spokesman Cathy Hayden, and students need to check the college’s emergency information webpage at http://eagle-

one.hindscc.edu/ this afternoon for announcements. Cooper Lighting reported it was closed today, while Anderson-Tully canceled its first shift and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers gave employees four extra hours to report. Warren County offices delayed opening today until 1 p.m. but the City of Vicksburg departments were set for normal schedules after key officials met in conference calls Sunday, said Mayor Paul Winfield. “We could not get a consensus to close,” Winfield said. Winfield said he favored closing city offices but North Ward Alderman Michael Mayfield did not agree. South Ward Alderman Sid Beauman did not participate in the discussion, Winfied said. Precipitation recorded this morning at the city water plant for the past 24 hours

measured .45 inches, mostly between 4:30 and 8:30 p.m. Sunday. The high for the day was 37, the low just under 32 degrees. The city experienced no major problems Sunday or Sunday night, said Winfield. Road crews sanded icy streets and bridges where necessary. The Warren County Board of Supervisors held its scheduled 8:30 a.m. meeting, but Administrator John Smith took the precaution of delaying the opening of the courthouse and other county offices today until 1 p.m. “We’re following suit with the recommendations of the state and Hinds County,” Smith said. The Sharkey County grand jury, scheduled to be selected and sworn in today, was postponed until Tuesday, said District Attorney Ricky Smith.

Gov. Haley Barbour issued a statement Sunday evening delaying the opening of state offices except in Hancock, Harrison and Jackson counties on the coast. The weather service said snow amounts statewide ranged from more than 5 inches in Oxford to around 3 inches in Starkville. The National Weather Service in Jackson was forecasting a chance of freezing drizzle before noon, with temperatures not getting higher than the 30s. Tonight’s temperature is expected to drop to about 29, and wet roads could become slick. Tuesday is expected to be sunny, with a high near 42 and a north-northwest wind between 5 and 15 mph.

Arizona, said they’re asking that San Diego attorney Judy Clarke be appointed. A report late this morning indicated Loughner had been rejected for entry into the U.S. military. He is charged with one count of attempted assassination of a member of Congress, two counts of killing

an employee of the federal government and two counts of attempting to kill a federal employee. More charges are expected. Court papers filed with the charges said Loughner had previous contact with Giffords. The documents said he had received a letter from the Democratic lawmaker in

which she thanked him for attending a “Congress on your Corner” event at a mall.

Southern Sudan attacks

20 dead as independence voting begins JUBA, Sudan (AP) — Arab tribesmen accompanied by a Khartoum-backed militia killed 20 policemen in Sudan’s disputed region of Abyei, a southern military spokesman said today, raising concerns of violence as the south carries out a weeklong independence referendum. The attack came Sunday, the first day of Southern Sudan’s self-determination vote, which is widely predicted to break Africa’s largest country in two. The referendum was promised in a 2005 peace deal that ended two decades of civil war. Jubilant voters flooded polling stations for a second day today. The seven days of balloting are likely to produce an overwhelming vote for independence, and Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has said he will let the oil-rich south secede peacefully. But Abyei is still a major sticking point, and officials from former U.S. President Jimmy Carter to Sudan activist and actor George Clooney have warned that Abyei holds the potential to send the north and south back to conflict. Abyei, which straddles the north-south divide and holds oil deposits, had been promised its own self-determination vote, but now its future will be decided by north-south negotiations that have so far made little progress. Col. Philip Aguer, the spokesman for Southern Sudan’s army, said that the Misseriya

The associated press

A Sudanese man who lives in Las Vegas casts a ballot Sunday at an out-of-country voting location in Glendale, Ariz. — an Arab tribe that moves its cattle herds through Abyei — attacked the village of MakerAdhar on Sunday with antitank weapons and artillery. Aguer said he believes the attack was planned. “They were not with cattle, they were coming for (an) attack.” Aguer said the Misseriya were accompanied by uniformed militia men known as the Popular Defense Forces, a militia backed by the Sudanese government in Khartoum whose existence was outlawed by the 2005 peace agreement that ended the 1983-2005 northsouth civil war.

Aguer said 20 police serving with Abyei’s joint integrated police unit were killed. Another 30 were wounded. A U.N. official said the southern government has asked for help in evacuating the wounded police. The official was not allowed to be identified because the information hadn’t been made public. Clashes in disputed regions often produce widely differing accounts of the events. Bashtal Mohammed Salem, a Misseriya leader, told the AP that 10 Misseriya herders were killed Sunday in attacks by police in an area about 10

miles north of Abyei. MakerAdhar, where Aguer reported the police deaths, is in the same general area. “They want to keep us out of the area and declare independence unilaterally,” he said. Salem said leaders of the Dinka, a southern tribe, and Misseriya agreed no more attacks would happen. Meetings Wednesday are to include the interior ministers of the south and north to regulate the police presence. Salem said southern forces have increased their presence in Abyei, violating an agreement governing the issue.

Flash floods kill 4 in water-weary Australia BRISBANE, Australia— Flash floods swept through an Australian city today, killing at least four people, trapping others in cars and leaving some clinging to trees as relentless rains brought more misery to a region battling its worst flooding in decades. The raging torrent of muddy water picked up cars and tossed them like toys, carried away furniture as it washed through stores and prompted scores of emergency calls as it swamped Toowoomba, a city of about 90,000 in Queensland state in the northeast. At least four people were killed, including two children, state Premier Anna Bligh said in a late-night news conference.

Most on board die in Iran plane crash TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Investigators today found the black box from a passenger jet that broke to pieces on impact while trying an emergency landing in a snowstorm in northwestern Iran, killing at least 77 people. The pilots of the Boeing-727, operated by Iran’s national airline and carrying 104 passengers and crew, reported a technical failure to the control tower before trying to make the landing Sunday night, state-run TV reported. The IranAir aircraft broke into several pieces, but Mahmoud Mozaffar, head of the rescue department of Iran’s Red Crescent Society, said there was no explosion or fire.

Footage on state TV showed the plane’s crumpled fuselage lying in a field, torn apart in several places, under whirling snow in the darkness as rescue workers and local farmers searched for survivors in the hours after the crash. Heavy snow hampered rescue efforts, the semiofficial Fars news agency cited the head of the state emergency center, Gholam Reza Masoumi, as saying. That report also mentioned fog in the area. State TV said the aircraft disappeared from radar and went down in farmland after making a second attempt to land at the airport in the northwestern city of Orumiyeh.

Nets are close to deal for Carmelo

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The Nets are closing in on a deal to bring Carmelo Anthony to New Jersey. Talks on a three-team trade with the Denver Nuggets and Detroit Pistons are “advancing,” a person with knowledge of the discussions told The Associated Press on Sunday. The trade would reunite Chauncey Billups and Richard Hamilton in New Jersey along with Anthony, the person said on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to publicly discuss the talks. Although there has been progress, the person said there are potential roadblocks. The deal would fall apart if Anthony refused to sign a three-year, $65 million contract extension with the Nets. Billups also has said he would be reluctant to leave Denver. Anthony refused to discuss a potential deal before the Nuggets played New Orleans in Denver on Sunday night. He said afterward he didn’t think a 96-87 loss was his last game in a Nuggets uniform. “Uh-uh, not at all,” he said, repeating the phrase “not at all” four times.

The drive for five

Auburn aims to continue SEC dominance in title game By The Associated Press SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — It’s almost unheard of — a quarterback cranking out a string of 13 straight games with never an off day. But Auburn’s Cam Newton spent the 2010 season redefining what’s possible at that position. Every bit as rare: an offense that can’t be stopped. But Oregon, led by running back Michael James, has scored 37 or more points 11 times in an equally impressive undefeated season. These are the reasons people are envisioning scores like 60-55 and 55-53 for the BCS title game today in nearby Glendale, a reason the matchup has turned into such a red-hot ticket. No. 1 Auburn and No. 2 Oregon, a pair of newcomers to the championship scene, both have offenses that almost never take a break. The Tigers (13-0) have Newton, the Heisman Trophy winner who led the Southeastern Conference in rushing, passer efficiency and scoring. The Ducks (12-0) have James, the key to an offense that likes to snap the ball 9 to 11 seconds after the end of the previous play, and one that scores a nation-high 49.1 points a game. “They’ve got a lot of fast guys and they play fast,” Auburn defensive coordinator Ted Roof said. “But so far, we’ve been fast enough to win 13 games, too.” This pair of exciting, pointa-minute teams are coached by Gene Chizik and Chip Kelly — quite possibly the most obscure coaching duo to pace the sideline in a championship game since the BCS began in 1999. Both are in their second seasons as head coach at their schools. Chizik is a former defensive coordinator at Auburn and Texas who came back to the Plains despite a 5-19 record at his first head-coaching job at Iowa State. Kelly was handpicked by his predecessor, Mike Bellotti. After his first game as Oregon’s head coach, a 19-8 loss to Boise

Auburn quarterback Cameron Newton fights for extra yardage against Clemson on Sept. 18. The Heisman Trophy winner hopes to help the Tigers give the SEC five straight national titles.

On TV 7:30 p.m. ESPN BCS National Championship Game Auburn vs. Oregon State to start 2009, Kelly famously cut a check to reimburse a season-ticket holder who wrote him to complain about the performance. Hard to imagine anyone’s complaining now. “We stand for three things: playing fast, playing hard and finishing. We’ve done it with our 12 opportunities,” Kelly said. “Our vision has

not to do with championships. Our vision has nothing to do with getting a crystal ball or rings. It is all about playing the game. That’s what we’ve done all along and that’s what our vision is.” Auburn has been pummeled all season with questions about Newton’s status, the result of a meandering investigation into allegations that his father was involved in a failed pay-forplay scheme during Newton’s recruitment to Mississippi State. The NCAA cleared Newton to play shortly before the SEC title game, and with the

Tigers confident — at least for now — they won’t have to give back the BCS’s crystal ball trophy if they win it, the most notable controversy this week has been the debate over whether Auburn defensive lineman Nick Fairley is a cheap-shot artist. Fairley, the Lombardi Award winner as the nation’s best lineman, has brandished a reputation for playing hard through the whistle, and sometimes beyond. How Oregon’s quick — but not huge — offensive line handles Fairley could dictate how well Oregon’s fast-paced See BCS, Page B3.

DENVER — Boos from the home crowd. Passive play. Just two first-half shots. If this was Carmelo Anthony’s farewell, he sure didn’t go out on a high note. Anthony scored just eight points in the Denver Nuggets’ lethargic 96-87 loss to the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday night, putting a sour finish on a day filled with speculation that the superstar’s departure from Denver was close after 71⁄2 seasons. A person with knowledge of the discussions told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the Nuggets are closing in on a deal that would send Anthony to New Jersey in a three-team trade. Anthony said he didn’t think this was his last game in a Nuggets uniform, however. “Uh-uh, not at all,” he said, repeating the phrase “not at all” four times. Asked if that was an indication he wouldn’t sign his three-year, $65 million contract extension so the trade with the Nets could be consummated, Anthony demurred, saying: “I haven’t heard anything. Only, that it’s just been speculation as of right now.” See Hornets, Page B3.

Gators, Vikes ready for rematch By Jeff Byrd jbyrd@vicksburgpost.com Confidence is a great thing and Warren Central has plenty of it going into Tuesday’s showdown with archrival Vicksburg at Memorial Stadium. The Lady Vikes beat the Missy Gators 1-0 in their first meeting back in December at Viking Stadium and a win Tuesday would clinch a Class 6A playoff berth. But Vicksburg feels confident that it can win a rematch, considering that forward Raven Lawrence missed the loss. “I feel pretty confident,” Vicksburg coach Kori Babb said. “We gave them a good run when we played them at their place and we were missing some players. Now we’re all healthy.” Warren Central (8-6-1 overall and 2-1 Division 4-6A) battled division-leading Clin-

ton hard in a 2-0 loss Friday. Vicksburg (2-2) lost to Clinton 4-1, so the Lady Vikes have a two-goal edge in combined goal differential. That means Vicksburg must win by three goals to earn a playoff berth. “It was big to hold Clinton to two goals because our goal is to make the playoffs,” WC coach Trey Banks said. “We knew we couldn’t give up goals. Vicksburg would have to get three against us.” Warren Central goalkeeper Katie Humphries was key against Clinton making nine saves, including several at point blank range. Defenders Torre Dancyzk and Kylee Burk helped out with a save apiece. “I just had to play hard and strong and keep to the ground,” Humphries said. Another big effort will be needed against the Missy Gators, who feature speedy forward Tabitha Hayden.

“We just have to stay strong and let our defense work for us,” Humphries said. “We are working well as a team.” The Lady Vikes have gotten a lift with the return of senior forward Chelsea Duett, who missed much of the season with a knee injury. She has helped WC overcome the mid-season transfer of Mallory Reynolds to Texas. “We’ve gotten better with our mid-game and Chelsea has really stepped up since she’s come back,” Dancyzk said. Duett is confident. “If we settle down and play, I think we will win again,” Duett said. On the boys’ side, Vicksburg (7-8-3, 2-2) has momentum thanks to a 1-0 win via penalty kicks over Warren Central. The Gators have opened the 2011 portion of See Soccer, Page B3.

College football Nevada caps season with 20-13 win over BC SAN FRANCISCO — Rishard Matthews caught a touchdown pass and returned a punt for another score, and No. 13 Nevada used a strong defensive effort to cap its most successful season ever at college football’s highest level by beating Boston College 20-13 in the Fight Hunger Bowl on Sunday night. Colin Kaepernick threw for 192 yards and a touchdown for the Wolf Pack (13-1), who snapped a four-game bowl losing streak by tying a school record for wins in a season set when the school played in what used to be Division I-AA. This game matched BC’s topranked rushing defense against Nevada’s high-powered pistol attack that was third in the nation in rushing. The Eagles (7-6) did a good job controlling the Wolf Pack on the ground, holding them to a season-low 114 yards — more than 190 below their season average.

Green leaving Georgia for NFL ATLANTA — Georgia star wide receiver A.J. Green said Sunday he’ll give up his senior season to enter the NFL draft, where he’s projected as one of the top picks. Green’s draft status wasn’t hurt by a four-game suspension at the start of his junior season, his NCAA-imposed punishment for selling a bowl jersey to someone deemed an agent. If anything, his prospects improved last week when quarterback Andrew Luck, who led Stanford to a 12-win season and Orange Bowl victory, decided to return to college next season.

Peterson takes talents to NFL BATON ROUGE, La. — LSU scheduled a press conference for cornerback and return man Patrick Peterson today in which he planned to announce his intention to turn pro, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the announcement was still pending, but Peterson’s decision hardly came as a surprise.

NBA Varejao is out for the season CLEVELAND — Anderson Varejao is done for the season with a torn ankle tendon that will require surgery, another major blow to the bottoming-out Cleveland Cavaliers. Varejao got hurt while running in practice on Thursday as the Cavs prepared for a five-game road trip. He was placed in a walking boot and traveled with the team. He had a second MRI exam Sunday that revealed a complete tear.

Jan. 10 1972 — The longest winning streak in major professional sports is snapped when the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Los Angeles Lakers 120-104. The Lakers had won 33 straight, but Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 39 points gave Los Angeles its first loss since Oct. 31. 1982 — Joe Montana’s third touchdown pass of the game, a 6-yarder to Dwight Clark with 51 seconds remaining, lifts the San Francisco 49ers to 28-27 victory over the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC title game. 2006 — Bruce Sutter is elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Sutter is the fourth relief pitcher and first pitcher with no career starts to be elected to the Hall. 2009 — Arizona, the lone NFC team not to make it to a conference championship game since the NFLAFL merger in 1970, gets to host its first NFC championship game after a stunning 33-13 win at Carolina.

NFL

Ravens dominate youthful Chiefs KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Maybe the great Baltimore defense isn’t aging as quickly as some people thought. The battle-tested Ravens humbled a youthful Kansas City offense in a smothering second half Sunday, holding the Chiefs to 25 yards over the final two quarters en route to a 30-7 victory. Now it’s back to Pittsburgh on Saturday in the second round of the AFC playoffs, a showdown between bitter division rivals who split their season series. And yes, said Pro Bowl linebacker Terrell Suggs, this one is personal — but not just between the teams. “It’s personal between the two cities, Baltimore and Pittsburgh,” said Suggs, who had a sack of Matt Cassel during the second-half throttling. “It shouldn’t surprise you that these two teams are in the fight and at each other’s throats.” The Ravens (13-4) stopped what Kansas City does best. The No. 1 rushing offense in the NFL was held to 108 yards on the ground. Cassel was sacked three times. The Ravens forced five turnovers. And Pro Bowl wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, who led the league with a team-record 15 receiving touchdowns, did not catch a pass. He was so blanketed by the Ravens defense, he was never even thrown to. “It was a tough one,” Chiefs coach Todd Haley said. “I thought we got great experience for a lot of young guys that hadn’t been part of this.” The defensive onslaught began in the third quarter, when Jamaal Charles lost 5 yards on fourth-and-inches. From then on, the Chiefs were helpless to move the ball or stop the Ravens. “Our defense played phenomenal,” Ravens running back Ray Rice said. “They came out in the second half and gutted that offense.” The Chiefs (10-7), who had made a franchise-record sixgame improvement to win

Soccer Continued from Page B1. their schedule with a blowout win over GreenvilleWeston and ties against Madison Central and DeSoto Central. “I expect they’re going to bring their game, but I expect we’ll bring our game,” Vicksburg coach Jason Bennett said. “Win and we’re in. It’s in our hands. We’re where we need to be if we keep playing the way we’ve been playing the past three or four games.” The Vikings, who won the division title last year, have struggled. They lost 3-0 to Clinton Friday to fall to 1-2 in

the division and face a mustwin on Tuesday. “We know it’s win or else,” WC senior forward Marcus Renner said after the loss to the Arrows.

Kelly said it won’t make a difference, “because we don’t sub.” “When we want to play fast, we know the rules,” he said.

“If we are trying to play at a fast tempo, we are not trying to sub in those situations.” Oregon’s mission on defense is to try and become the first team to stop Newton, who has the body of a linebacker — 6-foot6, 250 pounds — but the skills of a running back and quarterback. He averages 108 yards rushing a game, completes 67 percent of his passes and has accounted for 49 touchdowns — 21 running and 28 passing. After he passed for 335 yards and four touchdowns and ran for two more scores in a 56-17 blowout of South Carolina in the SEC title game, Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier said a 60-55 score was a possibility in the title game. “You have two of the best offensive minds in football,” he said, speaking of Kelly and Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn. All of which may really mean that whichever defense plays better will lead its team to a championship. Demand for this game was, according to ticket seller StubHub, at a record level.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin makes a 4-yard touchdown catch as Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers defends Sunday. their first AFC West title in seven years, now go into the NFL record book as the only franchise with seven straight playoff losses. “It’s just a painful loss,” said safety Kendrick Lewis. “When you put up a performance like this in a clutch game, it hurts. It was very disappointing to go out and compete in a big game like that. It’s just a heartbreaker.” Ed Reed was not on the team flight back to Baltimore. The Pro Bowl safety boarded a private flight to Louisiana, where his family was still waiting for word about his younger brother who was believed to have disappeared Friday

morning beneath the waters of the Mississippi River. “Who’s a better teammate than Ed Reed?” Suggs asked. “He didn’t have to play today, but he chose to play. It was the simple fact that we wanted to give him 3 hours of peace. It definitely was an emotional win for him and the rest of us, too.” Reed said his family wanted him to play. The NFL interceptions leader made four tackles, including a bone-crushing hit on Dexter McCluster in the second half. “My family kept me focused. My older brother called me and told me, ‘Do what you do. You handle your business,

we’ll take care of everything over here,” Reed said. Joe Flacco threw two touchdown passes for the Ravens. But it was the vaunted Baltimore defense that sent about 70,000 shivering fans home with one more playoff loss, a streak that stretches back 17 years. “To set records is one thing,” said Lewis, who forced a fumble and had a sack in the second-half dismantling of the Chiefs. “To come out and play the way we’ve played in the third quarter all year and the last two weeks, just giving up seven points to opponents, that’s championship-caliber football.”

Vick interception seals Packer victory PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Aaron Rodgers watched helplessly from the sideline, hoping the defense could get a big stop to preserve his biggest win. When Tramon Williams intercepted Michael Vick’s pass in the end zone, Rodgers threw his hands up and pumped his fist. It was a lowkey celebration by Brett Favre standards, but perhaps one that was fitting — Rodgers has finally shed the ghost of Favre. He’s building his own legacy with the Green Bay Packers, and now has his first playoff victory. Rodgers threw three touchdown passes while seldom-used rookie James Starks ran for 123 yards in a 21-16 wild-card win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. “Well, in all my time being a football fan, I have never seen one player win a game all by himself,” Rodgers said afterward. “It’s a good team win for us and I will let you guys write what you want on that.” Rodgers was merely a spectator while Vick nearly led the Eagles back. But Williams picked his thrown intended for Riley Cooper with 33 seconds left to end it, sending the sixth-seeded Packers (11-6) to Atlanta (13-3) for a divisional playoff game next Saturday night. Favre may have run on the field and carried Williams off on his shoulder after that play, a big grin on his face. Rodgers is a little more subdued than No. 4, though. He grabbed his helmet and went out to kneel down for the final play. “It is a tough position as a quarterback to be on the sidelines and not be able to have an impact on that play,” Rodgers said, “Just hoping that the defense comes up with a stop.” Rodgers has shown patience before. He waited three years to become Green Bay’s starter and took over after Favre’s

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Gerard Lawson is stopped by the Green Bay Packers on a kickoff return during the first half Sunday. messy departure before the 2008 season. He long ago made Packers fans forget about Favre, and now has punctuated his impressive resumé with his first playoff win. “Milestone? That’s what you talk about. We don’t look at it that way,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “Aaron’s got a lot of football left in front of him. He’s going to be playing for a long time, and I think those conversations should be talked about at the end in my opinion.” It wasn’t Rodgers’ fault Green Bay lost 51-45 in overtime to Arizona last January. These aren’t the same Pack-

ers. This patchwork squad has 10 new starters, and a much stronger defense. Clay Matthews, Charles Woodson and Co. contained Vick for the most part. He threw for 292 yards and ran for 33 in his first playoff start since losing the 2005 NFC championship game on the same field as a member of the Atlanta Falcons. “I feel like I got greedy and took a shot at the end zone,” Vick said of his last pass. “I didn’t throw the ball I wanted and got picked.” Vick has come a long way since he was one of the game’s biggest stars during his days

in Atlanta. He missed two seasons while serving 18 months in prison for his role in a dogfighting operation, played sparingly in a backup role last year, and only got his chance after Matthews knocked Kevin Kolb out in Green Bay’s 27-20 win in Philadelphia in Week 1. Vick made the most of the opportunity. He had the best season of his career and was selected to start the Pro Bowl for the NFC. He can go to Hawaii now because the Eagles (10-7) are going home. This was the Packers’ third straight win in an elimination game.

Continued from Page B1. Anthony noted that team governor Josh Kroenke and general manager Masai Ujiri “are not even here, so I don’t see that happening.” In what time frame was he referring to? “I’m just saying I don’t see it happening right now,” Anthony said. This week sometime? “No.” Anthony insisted one of the worst performances of his career had nothing to do with the trade talk. “I’ve been playing all year long with speculation, so just to say that tonight the speculation bothered me, that’s not even on my mind in a basketball game,” he said. In foul trouble early, Anthony took just two firsthalf shots and his first basket came with 6:51 left in the third quarter, when his finger-roll layup pulled Denver to 65-49, drawing scattered cheers from the crowd disgusted by the Nuggets’ low energy. “There was a little bit of funk in tonight’s game. I’ll take responsibility for tonight’s loss,” Anthony said, noting that he wasn’t as aggressive as usual and passed up too many shots

while making too many passes. “I don’t like to look at the stat sheet, but for me to take 11 shots, that’s out of the norm for me,” Anthony said. When he re-entered the game in the fourth quarter, Anthony was serenaded with more jeers than cheers and was even booed when the Nuggets were closing in after trailing by 19 in the third quarter. Chris Paul, who scored 20, and David West (19) helped New Orleans stave off the Nuggets and send Denver to its third straight loss. Anthony took just five shots until the fourth quarter and finished 3 for 11 from the floor in 34 minutes. Nuggets coach George Karl has on several occasions praised Anthony’s professionalism for his hard work and spirited play this season, but Anthony looked disinterested for much of this night. The Nuggets pulled to 86-83 on J.R. Smith’s steal and slam, but the Hornets responded with an 8-2 spurt capped by Paul’s 3-pointer over Anthony, who left the court after the game with his head down.

Kardashians sued over debit card mess The Kardashian sisters have been sued by a California company that created a prepaid debit card that endorsed the reality show starlets. Revenue Resource Group LLC filed suit in Fresno County Superior Court last week against Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian. The sisters pulled out of the Kim, from left, Khloe and endorsement deal in NovemKourtney Kardashian ber under criticism over the card’s fees. The company’s lawsuit claims they broke their contract and cost the company at least $75 million in losses. The sisters’ mother, Kris Kardashian Jenner, and their company, Dash Dolls LLC, are also named in the suit. The sisters cut ties to the card three weeks after the product launched following a warning from Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal that the card’s fees were “predatory.” The Kardashians star in a series of namesake reality shows following their lives.

Playboy agrees to Hefner buyout offer The publisher of Playboy magazine has agreed to a sweetened offer by founder Hugh Hefner to take the company private. The price of $6.15 a share is an 18 percent premium over Friday’s closing price and values the company at about $207 million. The bid tops Hefner’s offer of $5.50 per share in July. A group led by Penthouse magazine has also made an offer for Playboy Enterprises Inc. valued at $210 million. But Hefner is Playboy’s largest shareholder with about 70 percent of the company’s voting shares and 28 percent of the nonvoting stock. The company’s namesake magazine has struggled with competition from the web, losing readers and advertisers.

Beckham family expecting baby No. 4 Team Beckham can soon expect another addition. David Beckham and wife Victoria are expecting their fourth child this year, the former England captain posted Sunday on his Facebook account. “I’ve got some great news to tell you all,” Beckham wrote. “Victoria and I are expecting our fourth child this summer. The boys are very excited about the arrival of a new brother or David and Vic toria sister.” The pair, who married in 1999 Beckham and whose celebrity is entrenched on both sides of the Atlantic, already have three boys: Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5. David Beckham has played 115 matches for England — a national record for an outfield player — and captained the team from 2000 to 2006. He played for Manchester United and Real Madrid before joining Major League Soccer club Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007. The 35-year-old Beckham wants to play on loan in Europe in the hope of being recalled to the England team by manager Fabio Capello after having been dropped from the squad in August.

‘True Grit’ rides tall with $15M, No. 1 finish By David Germain AP movie writer LOS ANGELES — “True Grit” seized the reins at the weekend box office with $15 million, taking the No. 1 spot and becoming the first Western to top the $100 million mark since the 1990s, according to studio estimates released Sunday. The Paramount release starring Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon bumped off Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller’s comedy “Little Fockers,” which was No. 1 for the previous two weekends. Released by Universal, “Little Fockers” slipped to second with $13.8 million, raising its total to $124 million. “True Grit,” which was directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, lifted its total to $110.4 million. Among newcomers, Nicolas Cage’s supernatural thriller “Season of the Witch” opened at No. 3 with $10.7 million. Distributed by Relativity Media, the movie stars Cage as a knight in the Middle Ages escorting a suspected witch to her trial. Gwyneth Paltrow’s country-music drama “Country Strong” premiered at No. 6 with $7.3 million. The Sony Screen Gems release casts Paltrow as a boozy singer trying to get her act straight after rehab. “True Grit” is a new take on Charles Portis’ novel, previously adapted in a 1969 version that earned John Wayne an Academy Award. Bridges stars as lawman Rooster Cogburn, hired by a 14-year-old girl to track down her father’s killer. In Wayne’s day, Westerns

There was a small surge of $100 million Western hits in the 1990s,

including Oscar best-picture winners “Dances With Wolves” and “Unforgiven.” The past decade brought the cowboy romance “Brokeback Mountain” and the modestly successful Westerns “Open Range” and “3:10 to Yuma,” but none approached the earnings of “True Grit,” which also is the first $100 million hit for the Coen brothers. While “True Grit” rides high, Hollywood’s overall revenues continued a slide that persisted through the fall and holiday season. Ticket sales this weekend totaled $112 million, down 30 percent compared to the same period last year, when the sci-fi sensation “Avatar” led with $50.3 million. The post-holiday period typically is a quiet time at movie theaters, but “Avatar” did blockbuster business last January, backed by such hits as “Sherlock Holmes” and

“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.” “This time a year ago, that little film calumping up the box office in a huge way and a totally unexpected way for January,” said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. Even the No. 4 movie from the same weekend last year, the vampire tale “Daybreakers,” did $15.1 million, more than this weekend’s No. 1 film. Hollywood may get a boxoffice jolt this coming weekend with Seth Rogen and Cameron Diaz’s action tale “The Green Hornet” and Vince Vaughn and Kevin James’ comedy “The Dilemma.” Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Final figures will be released today.

Focus to shift to science in Jackson doc’s hearing LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors are poised to focus on the science of what killed Michael Jackson as the second week begins in the preliminary hearing for the doctor charged in the King of Pop’s death. Dr. Conrad Murray, who faces involuntary manslaughter charges, is accused of giving Jackson a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol and other sedatives. He has pleaded not guilty, and his attorneys say he did not give the entertainer anything that should have killed him. After the hearing, a judge will rule on whether there is enough evidence for the Houston-based cardiologist to stand trial. It is scheduled to resume this morning. The hearing, which began last week, has included a significant amount of prosecu-

tion evidence during four days of testimony against Murray. Among the witnesses was a bodyguard who said he was told to place vials of medicine in bags before calling 911. Paramedics and an emergency-room doctor with a combined 50 years of experience also said they believe the singer died long before he was rushed by a paparazzihounded ambulance to a nearby hospital, where efforts failed to revive the pop superstar.

Using phone records and testimony from police and Murray’s current and former girlfriends, prosecutors have developed a timeline that shows Murray was on the phone throughout the morning of Jackson’s death on June 25, 2009, including after administering propofol to the singer. They hope to convince a judge of several key points: that Murray was distracted when he should have been monitoring Jackson, that he delayed calling 911, that he botched CPR efforts and that the singer was dead before help was summoned. The remainder of the hearing was likely to take a decidedly clinical approach, with coroner’s officials, propofol experts and police who interviewed Murray taking the stand.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said Friday that prosecutors told him they were ahead of schedule, although he did not indicate when the hearing might end. Sixteen witnesses have been called, and prosecutors appear to be at least halfway through presenting their case. Deputy District Attorney David Walgren initially said the hearing would take seven to eight days and require up to 30 witnesses. Defense attorneys rarely present witnesses or their own theories during preliminary hearings. In Murray’s case, they did not make an opening statement and have only hinted at potential arguments as they questioned witnesses.

PBS looking to revisit ‘An American Family’ By David Bauder AP television writer PASADENA, Calif. — PBS is looking at ways to make its 1973 documentary “An American Family” publicly available again to coincide with an upcoming HBO film that shows how television cameras changed the life of the Loud family. The HBO film, set to air in April, stars Tim Robbins and Diane Lane as Bill and Pat Loud. The Santa Barbara, Calif., couple invited filmmakers to document their lives for a 12-hour series, and the HBO production promises a behind-the-scenes look at how cameras tore the family asunder. The original documentary is increasingly looked upon as ground-breaking, probably television’s first reality series. PBS prefers to look upon how the series inspired observational documentaries, but it’s also possible to draw a line from “An American Family” on traditionally staid PBS to MTV’s “Jersey Shore.” “There was no precedent

The original documentary is increasingly looked upon as ground-breaking, probably television’s first reality series. PBS prefers to look upon how the series inspired observational documentaries, but it’s also possible to draw a line from ‘An American Family’ on traditionally staid PBS to MTV’s ‘Jersey Shore.’ for this,” said Robert Pulcini, a director of “Cinema Verite” on HBO. “This was a big experiment, and it was kind of a birth of a genre that no one saw coming.” The stars and producers of the HBO film remarked on how difficult it was for them to do research for their jobs because the original series is not readily available on DVD or other formats. “It’s obviously worth looking at,” PBS’ chief programming executive, John Wilson, said Saturday. “We’ll have to see if it’s possible to take advantage (of the HBO film) and make the most of the opportunity.” It is already being studied at one of PBS’ larger stations, WNET in New York City, said Stephen Segaller, that station’s vice president for

content. He said he believed the series had been repeated only once on PBS, and that was more that 20 years ago. Clearing all that airtime for a 12-hour rerun may not make sense, he said. One possibility is to do a special with highlights of the series and stream full episodes online, Segaller said. Making a DVD of “An American Family” could help raise money for the perenially cash-strapped public broadcasting service. Doing so would take research into who holds the rights to the material, including whether permission is needed to use any music that appeared, Wilson said. More than 10 million viewers followed the series, which documented the Louds’ marriage falling apart and oldest

son Lance’s lifestyle as a gay man, then a relative novelty in prime-time television. Lance Loud, before his death at age 50 in 2001, famously said that “television ate my family.” “They were the first virgins thrown into the volcano,” actress Lane said. “Did they jump? And were they pushed?” Besides Robbins and Lane, the HBO film also features a bearded James Gandolfini as the filmmaker behind “An American Family.”

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t confuse wishful thinking with the positive kind, because the two are totally dissimilar. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Friends or associates are as entitled to their opinions as you are. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — There is a chance that you might do something that is totally infeasible or goes against your better judgment. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Don’t be too proud to admit that something in which you’re involved is way beyond your scope or talents. Better to ‘fess up rather than mess up. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — It behooves you to be reasonable about your prices without giving away the store. When you make an honest deal, you can be certain that you’ll get far more back in return. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Don’t be wishy-washy about taking a firm stance. By showing that you have a strong backbone, you will win the respect and consideration that you deserve. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — There is a strong probability that it will be easier for you to make promises than it will be for you to keep them. Don’t forsake your good intentions, but protect yourself in the process. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Be careful not to let your generosity work against you if you become involved with the wrong people. Recognize when you are being manipulated and beat a hasty retreat. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Be grateful for any little favor or small concession you get from your dealings with associates. By having unrealistic expectations, all you will experience is disappointment.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m 13 and considered to be an extremely good athlete. When playing sports, I’m the first one chosen when we pick sides. My dad says that when I get to high school, I’ll play quarterback on the football team, pitcher on the baseball team and shooting guard on the basketball team. I really want to be a professional athlete, but I don’t know what sport would be best for me. I like all sports equally well. Do you think I have a chance to reach my dream? All of my friends think I’m so good in athletics that I won’t have a problem being a pro, but my dad says that it won’t be easy. Be honest, do you think I can make it to the pros? — Brent, Mobile, Ala. Brent: Every professional athlete today was once in your position — full of talent and fired by the dream of making it as a pro. So yes, it’s possible. It can be done, but you must be realistic. According to the National Collegiate Athletic Association, only one in 12,000 college athletes will become professional. Don’t let anyone kid you that you “won’t have a problem” becoming a pro. No one gets a free pass to those ranks. It takes a lot of hard work and some luck, as well (at least to the extent that you avoid a career-ending injury). That’s why you should maintain the best possible grades while you’re enjoying athletic competition. Dr. Wallace: I got my first bicycle for Christmas, but I’m not permitted to ride it unless I wear a protective helmet. I hate wearing it because it makes me look like a sissy. Besides, the plastic helmet would split if it ever hit the ground. What kind of protection is that? — Doug, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Doug: Perhaps you think that professional athletes are sissies, too! But I doubt it. Next time you put on your helmet, just remind yourself that football, hockey and baseball players, as well as auto racers and professional skateboarders, all wear protective headgear. And don’t forget the Grand Prix bicycle endurance racers. Just so you understand how a helmet works, it’s not the outer shell that provides the main protection. Instead, it’s the inner polystyrene liner that absorbs the shock of an impact and cushions the brain, according to Dr. John Grant, a pediatric neurosurgeon at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. There are many types of bike helmets available, but trust only those that are certified to meet or exceed the safety standards set by the American National Standards Institute and American Society for Testing and Materials. Also, it’s imperative you wear a helmet that fits properly. Ill-fitting helmets have a greater chance of coming off in an accident. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

to your son and explain to him that you would like to accept Liz and her son, but if she persists in the stance she’s taking, you will miss her. You have described someone who has a lot of growing up to do, and I hope your son recognizes it before he makes a mistake he may regret. Dear Abby: My neighbor’s children were walking home from school last month when I saw that they had dropped some papers. When I returned them to the kids, I noticed they were behind on their school lunch bill. The oldest child mentioned, “I hope Mom can pay or we’ll have to eat cheese sandwiches.” I was beyond angry! Their father is doing his second tour in Afghanistan, and their mother is doing her best to make ends meet. I took my fury to the school and discovered the kids didn’t qualify for free lunches

because their parents were just a couple of dollars over the limit. What a disgraceful way to treat the family of a soldier! I had money set aside for Christmas and decided to pay for those children’s lunches for the rest of the year. It wasn’t cheap — $2 per lunch for three kids — but it was worth it. Abby, please let your readers know that if anyone can afford even a few dollars, to inquire at their local school if there is a soldier’s child — or any child — who needs a free lunch. Our soldiers shouldn’t have to worry about their kids going hungry in school. P.S. My neighbors do not know about my donation. — Lending a Hand in the Midwest Dear Lending a Hand: You are an angel.

Sarcoidosis caused by growth of cell clusters in the body Dear Dr. Gott: My wife was diagnosed with multi-organ sarcoidosis. It has caused a third-degree heart block. It has been identified in her lungs, brain, liver, lymph nodes and has caused severe skin lesions. Steroids have helped but she was taken off them because of rapid bone loss that will result in a hip replacement in the future. Her current panel of doctors seems to be stumped as to what to do next. Do we have any options, or is there any new treatment that maybe has not made its way to our area yet? Dear Reader: Sarcoidosis is caused by the development and growth of clusters of inflammatory cells in various areas of the body. Most commonly, the lesions appear in the lungs, lymph nodes, eyes and skin. It is not known what causes the condition, but it is thought to result from an abnormal immune response. What triggers the response is not known, but some physicians believe it is likely something inhaled because most patients have lung symptoms. Symptoms, severity and duration vary from person to person; however, for most, it goes away on its own. For some, it may last indefinitely. Symptoms depend on what area is affected. Many people do not have symptoms. Some may have signs that develop gradually and last for several years, while others have symptoms that appear and disappear quickly. Based on your brief note, I believe that your wife has a severe case that has been causing problems for a while. You do not mention when she was diagnosed and how long she was taking medication. Treatment depends on severity and what organs are affected. Minor symptoms may only require close monitoring. For bothersome symptoms or if vital organs are at risk, antiinflammatory medication may be prescribed. Corticosteroids are most commonly used and are the best first-line approach. If they do not provide adequate results or cannot be tolerated, anti-rejection medications, anti-malarial drugs and TNFalpha inhibitors may be considered. Anti-rejection medications suppress the immune system and reduce inflammation. Anti-malarial drugs are most beneficial for those with skin symptoms and nervoussystem involvement. Tumor necrosis factor-alpha inhibitors are most commonly used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, but studies have shown it may be helpful in treating sarcoidosis. A final and last resort option is surgical organ transplant. This is only considered for individuals who have had severe liver or lung damage owing to sarcoidosis. You don’t mention what type of physicians your wife is currently seeing. Because she has many organs involved, she might need to be under the care of specialists who are familiar with sarcoidosis, one of whom might be a pulmonologist (lung specialist). Such specialists are

most likely to be familiar with sarcoidosis because it is primarily a lung disorder. He or she can then recommend other physicians based on which organs are affected. There will likely be a cardiologist (heart specialist), neurologist (brain and nerve specialist), dermatologist (skin specialist) and/or a hepatologist (liver specialist). You can learn more from the Mayo Clinic (www.MayoClinic.com/health/sarcoidosis/DS00251) or the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research (www.StopSarcoidosis.org).
