Ever y day Si nCE 1883

The bleakest year in foreclosure crisis has only just begun. Lenders are poised to take back more homes this year than any other since the U.S. housing meltdown began in 2006.


About 5 million borrowers are at least two months behind on their mortgages, and more will miss payments as they struggle with job losses and loans worth more than their home’s value, industry analysts forecast. “2011 is going to be the peak,” said Rick Sharga, a senior vice president at foreclosure tracker RealtyTrac Inc. The firm predicts 1.2 million homes will be repossessed this year by lenders. The outlook comes after banks repossessed more than 1 million homes in 2010, RealtyTrac said this morning. That marked the

highest annual tally of properties lost to foreclosure on records dating to 2005. Although Mississippi has avoided the crux of the national housing crisis, the number of properties targeted by foreclosure filings in 2010 jumped more than twofold from two years ago, the report said. The state had 1,024 foreclosure properties in December, an increase in foreclosure activity from earlier in the year. Irvine, Calif.-based RealtyTrac said 5,280 properties received

cousin, Carlton Thomas, 34, 1816 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., was picked up the next morning. Antonio Thomas, London and Gray were released from Warren County Jail Friday after posting bond. Carlton Thomas, Hill and Wilson remain in custody without bond.

Boxes will be lined up along Washington Street during the parade for donations of coats, blankets and canned foods, all of which will go to the River City Rescue Mission. Walker, a Vicksburg resident and the designer of an African-American flag, intends to commemorate Dr. King while educating young people about his legacy as a clergyman, activist and prominent leader in the non-violent parts of the civil rights movement. “I want to make sure our youth understand the legacy of Dr. King and be more productive citizens in and out of Vicksburg,” Walker said. “We’re keeping his legacy alive by loving and helping one another.” On the holiday, Monday, the Omicron Rho Lambda chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity will host its 22nd

annual scholarship breakfast at 8:30 a.m. at the Vicksburg Convention Center. U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson will be the speaker for the theme Remember, Celebrate, Act: A Day On, Not A Day Off. About 200 people attended the breakfast last year, and the chapter awarded four scholarships to students with the money from the breakfast. “I hope people understand the importance of Dr. King to our society and how he influenced our lives regardless of race,” said Lewis Burke, president of the Omicron Rho Lambda chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha. “His inspiration is alive today.” Also on Monday, AmeriCorps NCCC and United Way of West Central Mississippi will host a community service event in the city, A Day On, Not A Day Off.

The program will feature a speech by Hezekiah Watkins, the youngest man to be arrested during a sit-in on a Greyhound bus in 1961 during the civil rights movement when he was 13 years old. WLBT news anchor Howard Ballou also will speak about his mother’s experiences as a secretary

Mayor Paul Winfield will serve as grand marshal for the parade, and 16 floats are expected to participate.

JACKSON — State Auditor Stacy Pickering said a deception by a former, longtime county administrator could only have been done by someone who “knew the system.” During a news conference Wednesday in Jackson, Pickering issued a demand for $292,772 from Michael David Chandler, who worked more than 20 years as Panola County administrator. Pickering said an investigation revealed that Chandler had received $84,296 in overtime payments he wasn’t eligible for as county administrator. Then, Chandler retired in June 2007 and returned to work the next day in the same position as a contractor, earning his same salary of about $80,000. During the time Chandler worked as a contractor, he was drawing benefits from the Public Employees Retirement System. Under state law, public employees must wait at least 45 days after retiring before returning to a government job and they must earn no more than 50 percent of the salary they were paid before retirement, Pickering said. “This was done by an individual who knew the system very well,” Pickering said. Hiram Eastland III, a Greenwood attorney who represents Chandler, said his client is working to resolve the situation.

Mississippi legislature Immigration bill panders to fear, group says

House hearing aims at sex ed in schools By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press

By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — Immigrants’ rights advocates said Mississippi politicians are engaged in election-year pandering with a bill that would give law enforcement officers more leeway to check whether people are in the country illegally. About 80 people rallied Wednesday at the state Capitol to oppose the bill. The bill, which mirrors an Arizona law that took effect last year, is supported by several high-profile politicians. Chief among them is Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant, who’s

Bill Chandler, executive director of the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance, said the bill would erode public confidence in law enforcement and would put extra burdens on offi-

dler said. “This proposal only panders to the fear, xenophobia and bigotry of only some of our residents.” The bill awaits consideration in the Senate Judiciary A Committee.

tee Chairman Ed Blackmon, a Democrat from Canton, said the bill calls for increasing fines for motorists caught passing school buses unlawfully. On a second offense, drivers lose their licenses for 90 days. The bill also says a violator who hits a child can be charged with aggravated assault. Blackmon said prosecutors can do that now, but the bill honors the memory of Nathan Key, a Jones County boy who was killed after getting off a bus.

Edwin Edwards out of federal prison BATON ROUGE (AP) — Former Gov. Edwin Edwards has been released from federal prison and moved to a halfway house, after serving eight years for a corruption conviction. The four-term former governor arrived in Baton Rouge on Thursday morning after leaving the Oakdale prison. The 83-year-old Democrat is assigned to a halfway house for six months, until July. Edwards went to jail in October 2002 on a 10-year sentence for a bribery and extortion scheme to rig Louisiana’s riverboat casino licensing process during his final term in office. He has maintained his innocence. Edwards was brought to the halfway house by his daughter, Anna. Asked it how it felt to be out of prison, Edwards said “I don’t know yet” and refused to say anything else as he went

Brett Favre’s sister arrested in Diamondhead meth bust DIAMONDHEAD — The arrest of Vikings quarterback Brett Favre’s sister during a drug raid in southern Mississippi Wednesday isn’t the first time she’s been in trouble with the law. Hancock County Sheriff’s Maj. Matt Karl said officers are “very familiar” with 34-year-old Brandi Favre. “She’s always in trouble,” Karl said. Brandi Favre was among five people arrested in the Diamondhead bust and was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and generating hazardous waste, Karl said. Two of the other suspects face the same charges as Favre. The other two were charged with sale of a controlled substance, and one of them also faces a charge of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. About nine grams of the drug — worth about $1,000 — was recovered and hazardous materials teams had to clear the condo, Karl said.

Assassination highlights instability The assassination of Salman Taseer, governor of populous Punjab Province, close friend of Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and an outspoken opponent of religious extremism and Pakistan’s controversial blasphemy laws, highlights and deepens an ongoing crisis afflicting the country’s governing party and the country itself. Unfortunately, the prominent presence of the United States in Pakistan’s political affairs may exacerbate the problems rather than help to solve them. Salman Taseer was killed by Malik Mumtaz Hussain Qadri, a member of Mr. Taseer’s own elite security force, who surrendered to police and said he killed the governor because of his opposition to Pakistan’s blasphemy laws and was proud rather than repentant. Early news reports said Mr. Taseer was hit by nine bul-

lets, but a later hospital autopsy report saying he was hit 24 times raises questions of whether others were involved. Bottom line: Pakistan’s elite security forces can be, and have been, penetrated by religious extremists, a chilling thought that suggests growing extremist/jihadist power and influence. Mr. Taseer’s assassination follows the defection to the opposition Sunday of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement, the secondlargest party in Pakistan’s ruling coalition, which leaves Mr. Zardari’s ostensibly secular Pakistan People’s Party without a majority in Parliament. Opponents, divided among themselves, might not force a no-confidence vote, but the situation reveals just how shaky the Pakistani government is. Ironically, as Graham E. Fuller, former CIA station chief in Kabul,

20 YEARS AGO: 1991

Afghanistan, believes, U.S. policies may be contributing to Pakistani instability. In May 2009, Fuller wrote that “only the withdrawal of American and NATO boots on the ground will begin to allow the process of near-frantic emotions to subside within Pakistan, and for the region to start to cool down.” Fuller believes Pakistan can handle its own Islamists under normal circumstances, but “U.S. policies have now driven local nationalism, xenophobia and Islamism to combined fever pitch.” For now, the U.S. government should confine itself to expressing severe regret at the assassination. For the longer run, we would do well to begin a serious reassessment of U.S. policies in both Pakistan and Afghanistan, with an eye to reducing our military footprint.

It’s time to drop the demagoguery on ‘death panels’ It looks as though “death panel” demagoguery has won again. I’d like to think the victory is temporary and that Congress can debate health costs and end-of-life care rationally. Fear-mongering from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, right-tolifers and talk-show rabble-rousers kept a perfectly reasonable provision out of Congress’ new healthcare law that would have encouraged physicians to talk with seniors about end-of-life choices. They also attacked provisions to study the comparative effectiveness of drugs and medical procedures, plus an Independent Medicare Advisory Council to enforce savings, as forerunners of government “rationing.” Palin declared on her Facebook page during the 2009 health-care debate that “the America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s ‘death panel’ so bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their ‘level of productivity in society’ whether they are worthy of health care.” Amid the uproar, even nowSpeaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said that end-of-life counseling “may



Really, there are two issues here — end-of-life counseling and “rationing” — that ought to be debated separately.

start us down the treacherous path toward government-encouraged euthanasia.” The “death panels” issue roared back last month with a decision — laudable in its merits, if dubious procedurally — by the Obama administration’s Medicare chief, Donald Berwick, to authorize government payment to doctors to hold voluntary discussions with patients about their care at the end of life. Now Berwick has been forced to drop the proposal. “Death panel” talk also was fueled by the Food and Drug Administration’s decision to ban the expensive drug Avastin for use by gravely ill breast cancer patients. In an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal headlined “‘Death Panels’ Come Back to Life,” attor-

neys David B. Rivkin Jr. and Elizabeth Price Foley argued that “the Avastin story is emblematic of the government’s broader agenda to ration care based on cost and politics. ... When government sees insufficient benefit, all but the wealthiest and most politically connected will have to go without” lifesaving treatment. Really, there are two issues here — end-of-life counseling and “rationing” — that ought to be debated separately. Both have big cost implications, but counseling also can be part of a cultural change, already under way, that leads terminally ill people and their families to choose a humane “good death,” avoiding painful (and expensive) heroic measures to keep patients alive.

Voluntary counseling sessions as part of a Medicare beneficiary’s annual physical could lead a senior, healthy or ill, to equip himself with an advanced medical directive (“living will”) and complete a durable power of attorney appointing a surrogate to make medical decisions in case of incapacity. A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that nearly 70 percent of older adults have living wills detailing their endof-life wishes, and a 2009 Australian study found that “advanced care planning improves end of life care and patient and family satisfaction and reduces stress, anxiety and depression in surviving relatives.” The use of hospice care at the end of life — where patient comfort and access to family is emphasized over merely keeping the patient’s heart beating — also has increased significantly, to 40 percent for terminal cancer patients. There are significant savings to be had by opting to spend one’s last days in a hospice as opposed to an intensive care unit — perhaps $50 billion a year nationally — but the opportunity to choose is what’s even more important. To liken a voluntary consultation to a “death panel” is pure

demagoguery. The issue of rationing is not so cut-and-dried. America already rations health care by income, by access to health insurance and regular medical visits. The new health care law should have created a full-blown national research institute for health care best practices. Congress still should do that. Meantime, it would be far more effective to create a health care system in which patients were costconscious consumers, as opposed to having government agencies decree who will get what kind of care. Theoretically, to save money under President Barack Obama’s health plan, an agency such as the independent body created under the law will make those decisions — but they will be reversible by Congress. Obamacare won’t be repealed by Congress, as Republicans vow to try, but it can be improved. With any luck, the debate on how to do it will be conducted rationally. But maybe not.

Tragedy in Tucson

Suspect prone to outbursts, school records show TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — For four years, Jared Loughner was an unremarkable college student, commuting to classes near his home where he studied yoga and algebra, business management and poetry. But last year, his classroom conduct began to change. In February, Loughner stunned a teacher by talking about blowing up babies, a bizarre outburst that marked the start of a rapid unraveling for the 22-year old, who is accused of slaying six people and wounding 13, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. After his first flare-up, campus police decided not to intervene. “I suggested they keep an eye on him,� an officer wrote.

Jared Loughner Loughner’s on-campus behavior grew increasingly erratic, menacing, even delusional. Fifty-one pages of police reports released Wednesday provided a chilling portrait of Loughner’s last school year, which ended

in September when he was judged mentally unhinged and suspended by Pima Community College. As Tucson and the nation remembered the victims, new details surfaced about the busy morning Loughner had hours before the shooting. According to authorities, Loughner hustled to Walmart twice, was caught by police running a red light but was let go with a warning, and later grabbed a black bag from the trunk of a family car before fleeing into the desert on foot with his suspicious father giving chase. Eventually, he took a cab to the grocery store where he opened fire on Giffords and a line of people waiting to speak with her. Three months earlier, he had

been kicked out of school. In a Sept. 23 campus police report, days before his suspension, an officer called to quiet another one of Loughner’s outbursts described him as incomprehensible, his eyes jittery, his head tilted. “He very slowly began telling me in a low and mumbled voice that under the Constitution, which had been written on the wall for all to see, he had the right to his ’freedom of thought’ and whatever he thought in his head he could also put on paper. ... His teacher ‘must be required to accept it’ as a passing grade,� the officer wrote. “It was clear he was unable to fully understand his actions.� The school reports provide

the most detailed accounts so far of Loughner’s troubles at the college, and he is depicted at times as “creepy,� “very hostile� and “having difficulty understanding what he had done wrong in the classroom.� School officials have not said if the reports were shared wit authorities beyond campus. During his first outburst, in a poetry class, he made comments about abortion, wars and killing people, then asked: “Why don’t we just strap bombs to babies?� In an April report, librarians called police because Loughner, with ear buds, was making so much noise at a computer it was disturbing others But a month later, he became

hostile with a Pilates instructor when he learned he was going to receive a B in the class. The teacher told police Loughner said the grade was unacceptable. Outside class, she spoke with Loughner and later told police she felt the discussion “might become physical.� The professor was so concerned she wanted a campus police officer to watch over her class. According to school officials, Loughner studied at the college from the summer of 2005 to September, when he was suspended after campus police discovered a YouTube video in which Loughner claimed the college was illegal under the U.S. Constitution. In all, he had five run-ins with police on two campuses.

Obama urges nation to honor youngest victim Giffords has opened eye TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — President Barack Obama exhorted Americans to refrain from partisan bickering and urged the country to embrace the idealistic vision of democracy held by 9-year-old Christina Taylor Green, the youngest Arizona shooting victim and an aspiring politician who is set to be buried today in the first of half-a-dozen funerals. Speaking to an arena audience of about 14,000 and Christina Taylor even more in Green a nearby football stadium and at homes across the country, Obama drew on themes of unity, patriotism and heroism as he tried to help the nation make sense of a tragedy that unfolded as citizens were exercising their most basic of rights, meeting with their congresswoman. Christina and five others were killed and 13 injured Saturday in a shooting rampage as a crowd waited to meet Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head and left gravely wounded. Obama revealed during his speech that she had opened her eyes for the first time shortly after he visited her bedside. Obama focused on memories of the victims and the heroism of those who sprang to their aid after the gunfire. He steered clear of the political

Gabrielle Giffords, at a memorial service Wednesday, in Tucson. tit-for-tat that has consumed much of the dialogue since the massacre while acknowledging the “sharp polarization� that has gripped the country. He reminded the audience that the third-grader’s neighbor had brought Christina, a Little League player and newly elected student council member, to meet Giffords because of her budding interest in democracy. “She saw all this through the eyes of a child, undimmed by the cynicism or vitriol that we adults all too often just take

for granted,� he said. “I want to live up to her expectations. I want our democracy to be as good as Christina imagined it. I want America to be as good as she imagined it.� The funeral for Christina, who was born on Sept. 11, 2001, was set for this afternoon. It was to be the first of several planned in the coming days for the victims, including a federal judge with nearly 40 years of service and an aide who was about to be married. Obama’s comments brought the crowd to their feet and his

speech was frequently punctuated by rousing cheers and applause. One woman waved a sign that read “We Will Heal!� Obama bluntly conceded that there was no way to know what triggered the rampage. “If this tragedy prompts reflection and debate — as it should — let’s make sure it’s worthy of those we have lost,� he said. “Let’s make sure it’s not on the usual plane of politics and point-scoring and pettiness that drifts away in the next news cycle.�

Another package ignites suspicion in D.C. WASHINGTON (AP) — Days after a parcel ignited at a Washington postal facility, authorities returned Wednesday to the same neighborhood because of a suspicious package that was later determined not to be a threat. Firefighters gave the allclear about 45 minutes after they were called to a building in northeast Washington, D.C., fire department spokesman Pete Piringer said. The facility handles mail but isn’t run by the U.S. Postal Service, said Michael Romano of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. It’s a different location from the one that received a fiery package last week, he said, though both are on the same street. Authorities in Washington

Emergency vehicles are parked near a U.S. Postal Service facility Wednesday in northeast Washington, Wednesday, after a suspicious package was reported. and Maryland are still investigating three packages that ignited last week. The first two packages were addressed to Maryland Gov.

Martin O’Malley and state Transportation Secretary Beverley Swaim-Staley. The packages smoked and emitted a small flame that singed

the fingers of the two employees who opened them. They included notes complaining about Maryland’s toll-free terrorism tip line. A day later, a package addressed to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was reported smoking and popping at a northeast Washington mail facility. Authorities believe Napolitano was targeted in part for a campaign called “see something, say something,� that urges people to report suspicious activity. An FBI terrorism task force is investigating the packages, which were sent to a federal crime lab for analysis. Authorities have no suspects and have been tightlipped about the progress of the probe.

ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rep. Gabrielle Giffordsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; friends say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing short of a miracle: Days after being shot in the head point-blank, the injured congresswoman opened an eye Wednesday for the first time. Two of her closest friends from Congress, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., were in Giffordsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Tucson, Ariz., hospital room at the time. Both had traveled to Arizona on Air Force One with President Barack Obama to attend a memorial service for the victims of Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shooting rampage. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama immediately headed to University Medical Center after landing in Tucson, and spent about 10 minutes with Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly. Soon after, Gillibrand and Wasserman Schultz, along with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, got their chance to visit. The women became close friends while they were all serving in the House. Their professional bond turned personal, with Giffords and her husband going on double-dates with Gillibrand and her husband at Matchbox, one of their favorite Washington restaurants, and taking summer vacations to

New Hampshire with Wasserman Schultzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family. These we r e t h e memories they were Rep. Gabrielle sharing Gifford with Giffords when she started to signal that she might have known they were there. Gillibrand said she was holding Giffordsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; left hand when she started to feel it move. Giffords squeezed the senatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand, then rubbed her hand with her thumb. Then Giffordsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; right eye started to flicker. (Her left eye, damaged in the shooting, is bandaged.) For about 30 seconds, Giffords struggled, before finally opening her eye wide and straining to focus on her friends, husband, parents and doctor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew she could hear and understand what we were saying,â&#x20AC;? Gillibrand told reporters traveling back to Washington with the president this morning. It was the first time Giffords had opened her eye since the shooting. Kelly told Giffords to give him a thumbs-up if she could hear him. Instead, she slowly raised her left arm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The doctor said this is amazing,â&#x20AC;? Gillibrand said.

smart money Q: Please explain to me consequences at death of having property deeded â&#x20AC;&#x153;tenants in common with right of survivorship.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ed, via e-mail A: I am not certain I can give you a complete answer, but you do raise an interesting question. It BRUCE sounds to me that you would like the property to go to two or more tenants. This may be your children or something of that nature. Anytime you are leaving property to more than one person, undivided interest in property can lead to very contentious situations. I was always more com-


fortable in having the property left in a will whereby the executor of that will is directed in the will to dispose of the property and divide the proceeds rather than have the property put in the names of two or more people however related. Oftentimes, one wants to sell and the other one doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Many times one would like to keep it in the family but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the assets to buy out the others. I am far more comfortable in leaving it in the will with specific directions to your personal representative or executor as to your thoughts on the matter. It could be you want to leave it in their names, but then there are better ways to do that. One of them could be a trust. â&#x20AC;˘

Economy toughened up at end of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;10, encouraging Fed report shows WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The U.S. economy ended last year on an encouraging note, with all parts of the country showing improvements. Factories produced more, shoppers spent more and companies hired more â&#x20AC;&#x201D; pointing to a stronger economy in 2011. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the picture that emerged from the Federal Reserveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s survey of economic conditions released Wednesday. Still, risks loom. Declining home prices and millions of foreclosures are depressing housing markets around the country, the survey said. Companies are also paying more for materials including oil, food products, steel, textiles and chemicals, the survey noted. However, competitive pressures prevented them from passing those increased costs on to customers in the form of higher prices. And even though employers are slowly hiring more, workers lack bargaining power to win bigger paychecks because of high unemployment, which is now at 9.4 percent. Prices increases remain tame. The Fed will monitor inflation as it reviews its $600 billion Treasury bond-buying program, which is intended to boost the economy by lowering interest rates, encouraging spending and lifting stock prices.

Still, risks loom. Declining home prices and millions of foreclosures are depressing housing markets around the country, the survey said. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said he is optimistic that the economy will strengthen this year. But he warned last week that it will take up to five years for unemployment to drop to a historically normal level of around 6 percent. The bond-buying program will come under scrutiny at the Fedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first meeting of 2011 on Jan. 25-26. Four regional Fed presidents become voting members of the Fedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policymaking group at that meeting. Two of them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Richard Fisher, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, and Charles Plosser, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have voiced concerns that the bond-buying program could spur inflation. Fisher and Plosser have reputations for being â&#x20AC;&#x153;inflation hawks,â&#x20AC;? meaning they are more concerned about the prospects of rising inflation than they are about ratcheting down high unemployment. Both men are likely to put pressure on Bernanke to scale back the $600 billion program, espe-

cially later this year if the economy continues to gain momentum as expected. In a speech Wednesday, Fisher said the Fed has done enough to aid the economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have reached our limit,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Fed indicated there would be a high threshold for changing the program, according to minutes from its Dec. 14 meeting. Bernanke offered no signals that any changes would be forthcoming when he testified before Congress last Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While the (Fed survey) was somewhat upbeat, it is clear that the economy is still a long way from the threshold which would induce any change in the Fedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extremely accommodative policy orientation,â&#x20AC;? Brian Bethune, economist at IHS Global Insight, said referring to the central bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bondbuying program. The Fed survey also said: â&#x20AC;˘ Hiring was firming and businesses in most regions planned to increase hiring at the same or faster pace this year. â&#x20AC;˘ Retailers across all regions experienced better-thanexpected sales after a strong holiday shopping season. â&#x20AC;˘ Factories across the country boosted production, with demand growing for cars and high-tech equipment. â&#x20AC;˘ Businesses said they no longer fear there will be a double-dip recession.

Stocks dip after unemployment report NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Stocks fell slightly today after the government said more people applied for unemployment benefits last week.

35 jobs to be added in Tupelo as Cooper Tire plant expands TUPELO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has announced a $9 million expansion at its Tupelo plant. The expansion will add 35 new jobs. Cooper Tire employs about 1,300 workers in Tupelo, plus an additional 400 contract workers. The Mississippi plant was spared during a 2008 restructuring along with facilities in Findlay, Ohio, where Cooper Tire is based, and Texarkana, Ark. Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement is the second expansion for

the plant in two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To continue to add jobs and position our self apart from a competitive standpoint, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a great feeling,â&#x20AC;? Patrick Jodon, the plant manager, said Wednesday. Jodon said the expansion wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t add any more space to the 2 million-square-foot facility; rather, it will bring in new equipment to help improve the efficiency of the facility. Jodon said the equipment will be moved into the plant over the next 12 to 14 months.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An offshore drilling services company asked a federal judge Wednesday to rule that government regulators have unreasonably delayed action on deepwater drilling permit applications even after lifting a drilling moratorium imposed in the wake of the massive Gulf oil spill. Ensco Offshore Company asked U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman to issue a preliminary injunction that would require the Interior Department to â&#x20AC;&#x153;expeditiouslyâ&#x20AC;? process five pending permit applications in which the company has a contractual stake. Ensco attorney Adam Feinberg suggested Feldman could rule that the Interior Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management must process these applications within 30 days. The judge said he hoped to rule on that request later this month. The government lifted its temporary ban on deepwater drilling in October. Since then, offshore operators have submitted 13 permit applications for drilling activities that were barred under the moratorium, but none have been approved, Feinberg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a pattern of bad faith,â&#x20AC;? Feinberg said. Feldman, who said the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drilling restrictions have cost an estimated 9,000 to 12,000 jobs, asked Justice Department attorney Guillermo Montero to define what would be a reasonable time period for the government to act on permit applications. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When will these jobs be restored?â&#x20AC;? the judge asked. Montero said every application is different. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I cannot say in the abstract what a reasonable time is to process any particular application,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every application is its own different monster.â&#x20AC;? Adam Babich, a lawyer for environmental groups that supported the moratorium, suggested Ensco is asking Feldman to micromanage a government program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to do that,â&#x20AC;? the judge interjected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody elected me senator or congressmanâ&#x20AC;? The government imposed its initial version of the moratorium after the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, killing 11 workers and triggering the spill. Feldman struck down the ban in June, concluding the government simply assumed that because one deepwater rig went up in flames, others were dangerous, too.

Continued from Page A1. some type of foreclosure filing throughout the year, ranging from an initial notice of default to outright seizure and sale by a lending institution. That was up 130 percent from 2008, but a slight drop of 2.3 percent from 2009. One in every 240 housing units in Mississippi received some kind of notice last year, ranking the state 45th in the nation — and in another league entirely from much of the nation. In Warren County, the report showed a drop in

foreclosures in December to seven from eight in November, or one for every 3,067 housing units, ranking 23rd of 55 counties with data available. Hinds County had the highest rate for the month with one in 166 housing units listed. Across the U.S., one in 45 households received a foreclosure filing last year, or a record high of 2.9 million homes. That’s up 1.67 percent from 2009. For December, 257,747 U.S.

homes received at least one foreclosure-related notice. That was the lowest monthly total in 30 months. The number of notices fell 1.8 percent from November and 26.3 percent from December 2009, RealtyTrac said. The pace slowed in the final two months of 2010 as banks reviewed their foreclosure processes after allegations surfaced in September that evictions were handled improperly. Under increased scrutiny by the government, lenders temporarily halted

taking actions against borrowers severely behind on their payments. However, most banks have since resumed their eviction processes, and the first quarter likely will show a rebound in foreclosure activity, Sharga said. Foreclosures are expected to remain elevated through the year as homeowners contend with stubbornly high unemployment, tougher credit standards for refinancing and falling home values. Sharga said he expects

pleased.” The center is kicking off the new year with what Gilmer calls an aggressive marketing campaign to draw in more customers which translates into an increase in sales. “We’re tweaking it out to make sure it’s right,” she said. “We’ll send it out to all the corporations’ marketing departments. Every month we’ll have events planned and we’ll have some new things we feel that are important to the community as well as the center.” This year, the outlets signed on to be a major sponsor of the Miss Vicksburg and Riverbend pageants as community projects and events to embrace local customers, who make up about 60 percent of the center’s foot traffic. Regional shoppers and tourists make up the rest, Gilmer said. “We market within 100 miles and that’s where our core customers come from,” she said. During 2010, the center saw one of its 27 stores, Bath & Body Works, close, and Gilmer said she wants to replace that specialty. “In the outlet business, our playing field had narrowed,” she said Wednesday. “Right now, there isn’t anybody that does the same thing as Bath & Body. We would love for someone to fill that category because we felt like it was a great draw. It was well over a million-dollar store. It’s truly a loss to the center.” The center has 30 spaces — 26 remain rented — and Gilmer said she hopes to fill the vacancies with specialty shops for men and women. Leasing agents for the center have been courting such retailers as Black & Decker, a power tool company, and Ann

Taylor Factory Store, an upscale women’s apparel shop, who are looking for locations this year. “We’d like to expand our variety,” Gilmer said. “The real key is having a good tenant mix.” rue 21, a contemporary men’s and women’s apparel store, saw a boom in business and remodeled its 3,000-square-foot store by doubling space to be able to offer more items. Since the expansion in October, assistant store manager Sharon Vaughn said she has seen an increase in customers and sales. “It has doubled,” she said Wednesday. “It’s more work, but it’s also fun. It was a great idea to expand.” Expansion and such mini-face lifts as painting and molding work also are on the center’s radar this year. “Possibly in this next year, if the economy turns around, they may be able to build additional space,” Gilmer said. “The development center owns all the property all the way to Watkins’ (Nursery Home & Garden Center),” she said. “We have over 30 acres so we have plenty of room to expand.” A road extension project connecting South Frontage Road to East Clay Street is another goal Gilmer said she continues to work toward strongly. “It’s a costly project, but it’s moving forward,” she said. “It’s been ongoing. The engineers are making sure they are ready for the design phase.” Discussions and studies to build a bridge connecting South Frontage Road from the Old Highway 27 intersection to East Clay Street at the outlets began in 1990. The projected cost is $12.1 million, she said.

Carroll said his first run for public office will focus on taxes and finding ways to finance a new county jail without raising taxes. “It should be an extreme emergency to have to raise taxes,” Carroll said. “We don’t need 50 acres and all this stuff they’re coming out with (for a jail).” Building and staffing a jail according to recommended specifications would force a property tax increase through a millage rate hike, according to calculations this week by the county. The current county tax rate of 86.73 mills was last increased in 2008 during high energy prices and in 2005 to finance upgrades in emergency

Pier 2, the first large support pier from the Mississippi bank, moved little in a year’s time after more than 9 inches of westerly movement has been noted in several inspection reports during the past 15 years. “I’m happy to report pier 2 — for the past two years — has essentially stayed within a halfinch in its position,” said Rudy

brother-in-law, Joe Derivaux; and a niece and a nephew. Father Vollor was born Feb. 24, 1942, in Vicksburg. Educated in the Catholic schools of Vicksburg, he enlisted in the Marines and served three combat tours in Vietnam and was discharged as a corporal.

WEather everywhere

New England bundles up, digs out from winter storm BOSTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Much of New England continued to dig out from under more than 2 feet of snow and children in hundreds of communities enjoyed a second day off from school today as power companies worked to restore energy to homes and businesses darkened by the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third snowstorm in three weeks. The winter storm that crippled the South earlier this week lightened up as it moved to the Northeast, before joining forces Wednesday with a system from the Midwest. The storms announced their arrival in New England with claps of thunder and record amounts of snowfall in some cities. As the storm swept north, the National Weather Service reported snow on the ground in every state except Florida. That included Hawaii, which had 7 inches on the top of the Mauna Kea mountain. The winter weather was blamed for at least 18 deaths since Sunday when snow and ice hit the South. Forecasters predicted sunshine today in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, accompanied by wind gusts and temperatures below freezing. Snow showers and strong winds should blow over Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will still have to bundle up to go out to dig out of their driveways and side-

Scores of schools, businesses and government offices closed Wednesday, and some, including schools in Boston and Providence, R.I., was to stay closed today. Airlines canceled more than 3,000 flights, mostly in

the snowy Northeast, but said travelers wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be stuck for days as they were after a Christmas weekend storm. New York accounted for half the canceled flights, according to flight-tracking service FlightAware. Commuter rail service was delayed or suspended in the region, and Amtrak suspended service between New York City and Boston because of damage to the overhead power system south of Boston. While motorists were warned to stay off the roads, Josh Clukey, 24, of Eastford, Conn., had no choice. He ventured out when his pregnant wife began showing signs of

labor early Wednesday. The drive to a hospital in Willimantic, normally 25 minutes, lasted a harrowing hour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a little scary. It was dark, and the snow was blowing all over the place,â&#x20AC;? said Clukey, whose son, Ryland James, was born at 8:42 a.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was maybe only about 6 inches on the roads at the time, but the plows hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come out yet.â&#x20AC;? In Maine, winds that gusted to 48 mph in Portland and 50 mph in Brooklin knocked out electricity for more than 7,000 Central Maine Power and Bangor Hydro-Electric Co. customers at the stormâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s peak, officials said.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tie: Last year equaled 2005 as the warmest year on record, government climate experts reported Wednesday. The average worldwide temperature was 1.12 degrees Fahrenheit above normal last year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same as six years ago, the National Climatic Data Center announced. Climate experts have become increasingly concerned about rising global temperatures over the last century. Most atmospheric scientists attribute the change to gases released into the air by industrial processes. In addition, the Global Historical Climatology Network said Wednesday that last year was the wettest on record. Rain and snowfall patterns varied greatly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The warmth this year reinforces the notion that we are seeing climate change,â&#x20AC;? said David Easterling, chief of scientific services at the climatic data center. Nine of the 10 warmest years on record have occurred since 2000, he noted.

The exception was 1998, which is the third warmest year on record going back to 1880. Easterling said the data â&#x20AC;&#x153;unequivocallyâ&#x20AC;? disproves claims that climate warming ended in 2005. The temperature readings are collected at land stations and from ships and buoys at sea. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;normalâ&#x20AC;? reading they use is the average worldwide temperature for the 20th century, which was 57.0 degrees Fahrenheit. Other findings in the annual climate report: â&#x20AC;˘ There were just seven named storms and three hurricanes in the Pacific, the fewest since the mid1960s. On the other hand the Atlantic hurricane season was very active with 19 named storms and 12 hurricanes. â&#x20AC;˘ Arctic sea ice cover was the third smallest since records began in 1979, trailing only 2007 and 2008. The ice cover is considered a marker of climate change as global warming tends to be seen first at the poles.

Nashville flood warnings came too late, research finds NASHVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The National Weather Service failed to warn of major flooding in Nashville in the spring until after it had already taken place, and residents did not heed warnings because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reflect the urgency of the flooding, which killed 22 people around the state, a new report shows.

The report released by the weather service on Wednesday found that the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s river forecasters ignored two models that showed more accurate flood predictions for the Cumberland River. Instead forecasters favored a model that relied on inaccurate and untimely information from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The weather service continued to use that data despite observations on the ground that proved their flood predictions were inaccurate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop the rain, but we can and must do a better job at warning people of the potential for dangerous flooding,â&#x20AC;? U.S. Rep Jim Cooper, D-Nashville, said in a state-

ment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A few hours of warning could have saved lives and prevented millions of dollars in damage.â&#x20AC;? Record rainfall caused the Cumberland River to swell on May 1 and 2. According to the report, by early Sunday, May 2, and possibly earlier, officials at the weather serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ohio River Forecast Center

Idaho winner pops up, requests privacy RATHDRUM, Idaho (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A 29-year-old mother of two and former bank worker from northern Idaho has claimed the remaining half of a $380 million Mega Millions jackpot, lottery officials and others said Wednesday. Holly Lahti, of the small town of Rathdrum, will split the second-largest lottery jackpot in history with Jim and Carolyn McCullar of Ephrata, Wash.

and not attempt to contact her until sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prepared to speak to you,â&#x20AC;? Idaho Lottery Director Jeff Anderson said at a news conference.

He referred to Lahti as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;delightful young ladyâ&#x20AC;? and said he tried to persuade her to go public because there are â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lot of curious people out there.â&#x20AC;?

Les Miles gets seven-year deal

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Les Miles made it clear, in his own particular way, that he is living in the present. His nostalgia for Michigan, where he played, and his enduring pride in his alma mater could not outweigh the relationships he’s built in the past six seasons at LSU, where Les Miles he’s won 62 games and five bowls, including the 2007 national title. “I’m one of those guys that believe where you are at is where you live your life,” Miles said Wednesday shortly after LSU announced that the Tigers’ coach had agreed to a new contract that would keep him living down on the bayou for the next seven seasons. The announcement of Miles’ new deal came two days after Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon flew to Baton Rouge to meet with Miles about the Wolverines’ coaching vacancy that has since been filled by Brady Hoke. Miles’ annual salary will remain the same at a little more than $3.75 million. However, his new deal gives him three additional years.

About 250 runners and walkers completed the race in each of its first two years — when temperatures in the 30s were accompanied by a steady breeze — and roughly 300 registered each time. No-shows on race day account for the difference. “We’re hoping to get another 100 or 150 before the race, and then we’ll probably get 75 Saturday morning. So we’re a little ahead,” race director Dustin Blount said. “With a high of 51 and sunny, you’ll get your not-hardcore


Hornets snap Magic streak By Brett Martel The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — Marcus Thornton’s shooting touch returned at the right time for the New Orleans Hornets. Thornton had a seasonhigh 22 points and nine rebounds, complementing Emeka Okafor’s 18-point, 14-rebound performance, and New Orleans outlasted Orlando 92-89 in overtime on Wednesday night, snapping the Magic’s nine-game winning streak. Hornets coach Monty Williams said he wasn’t planning to use Thornton, a former LSU star who was 6-of-33 shooting in his previous seven games. Then starting shooting guard Marco Belinelli sprained his right ankle in the first quarter and plans changed. “Marcus came in and did phenomenal,” Okafor said. “(He) came in off the bench and did what he does best, which is score.” Thornton has been known to score in bunches but his shooting slump was costing him playing time lately. When Belinelli went out, he said his goal was “just to step up and try to fill the void.” He did, particularly in overtime, when he hit a 3 early in the period, then nailed a jumper from the top of the key with 37 seconds left to put the Hornets up 90-89. Dwight Howard, whose 29 points and 20 rebounds kept the Magic in the game, missed a pair of free throws that could have given Orlando a one-point lead with 11 seconds to go. Then Thornton made two more free throws for the final margin. “You can’t just look at it as the (missed) free throws

types that wake and up and decide to go.” The race begins at the Vicksburg Convention Center at 8:30 a.m. Saturday. The course will be the same as last year’s, except the finish for runners and walkers will be at the Convention Center parking lot on Mulberry Street. Last year, race participants had to negotiate a steep hill and a pair of treacherous right-hand turns on See Chill, Page B3.

Golden Eagles fry Rice in OT By The Associated Press

New Orleans Hornets guard Marcus Thornton, right, shoots over Orlando Magic forward Ryan Anderson Wednesday. Thornton scored 22 points in a 92-89 Hornets’ victory. lost the game,” Howard said. “There were a lot of plays down the stretch that we didn’t make. We didn’t play as hard as we’re supposed to play and they got easy buckets. ... There was a lot of mistakes that we made to put us in that position.”

Chris Paul had 12 points and 13 assists, David West had 13 points and 10 rebounds, and Trevor Ariza had 16 points as New Orleans used a slow pace and typically strong defense to pull out the victory. “I guess we play slow,”

Paul said. “But it’s a combo of that and our defense. We got stops. They really like to push the tempo and shoot 3s in transition, but we tried to be up and be aggressive and make them take tough shots.” See Magic, Page B3.

HOUSTON — Gary Flowers scored 24 points, including six in overtime, to lead Southern Miss to an 81-78 victory over Rice on Wednesday night. Flowers made a layup with about a minute to go in OT to bring the Golden Eagles (13-3, 2-1 Conference USA) within one, 78-77. Sai’Quon Stone hit a jumper to put the Golden Eagles ahead and Flowers made a pair of free throws down the stretch to clinch the win. “The story of the game was that our team was able to overcome the disappointment and letdowns during the game,” USM coach Larry Eustachy said. “To come back showed unbelievable character. You can name any player on this team and they were the reason why we won. It was a great game and a great win. I’m ecstatic that we were able to pull this one out on the road and I’m extremely proud of these guys.” LaShay Page added 15 points for Southern Miss while R.L. Horton and D.J. Newbill scored 11 each. Connor Frizzelle, who sent the game to overtime on a 3-pointer with 18 seconds left in regulation, led the Owls (8-9, 0-3) with 21 points. Tamir Jackson added 19 points for Rice.

Miles, Mullen made the right decisions to stay put Sometimes the best play is none at all. LSU coach Les Miles made the right decision on Tuesday when he decided to stay in Baton Rouge, spurning Michigan, which he once called his dream job. The reasons are multifold. Louisiana high school football is much stronger than Michigan’s. Miles can drive 100 miles in any direction from Baton Rouge and find future NFL first-round draft picks in abundance. LSU has proved itself a championship football program with two BCS titles and is now one of college football’s elite. Michigan? Not so much. Even though he gets a ton of grousing for his bizarre clock management fiascoes, like the one last season against Tennessee, he still wins 10 games a year and



keeps the Tigers in the hunt for a national title. Which is all you can really ask considering how tough the SEC is these days. Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen did the same earlier this season. When Miami and Florida were interested, he decided to play the next hand and stayed in Starkville. Miami would’ve been a horrible fit. The personnel, recruited for a pro-style

scheme, do not fit Mullen’s spread offense, the facilities are laughable, fan support is abysmal and the team doesn’t even have its own stadium. Even though the area is still a hotbed for recruiting, Mullen, like Miles had he gone to Michigan, would’ve been set up to fail. While Florida would’ve been a better situation, the pressure there to win titles every season, is intense. Mullen can win eight or nine games a season, a fireable offense in Gainesville, and be the toast of Starkville. If he wins an SEC title, the school would consider naming the stadium after him and possibly erect a statue. Too often, coaches are ready to make a leap to a higher salary and greater level of commitment without

making sure that the job is a good fit for them. Just like the recruits they entertain, a coach visiting a perspective employer for an interview can be caught up in the hype and not think clearly. And a great example is clad in maize and blue. Former Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez was never a good fit in the Big House, despite being raved as a great hire at the time. His unconventional spread option offense rankled many Michigan football fans and resulted in a huge purge of talent, like Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett, before Rodriguez coached his first spring practice. His ugly divorce from his alma mater, NCAA probation for too much practice time (apparently it didn’t pay off) and inability to beat any of the

Wolverines’ rivals proved his undoing. He’d have served himself much better by staying put at West Virginia, which will be undergoing a coaching change next season as Bill Stewart was forced to add his replacement, Dana Holgorsen, to his staff as a “head coach in waiting.” Staff meetings next year should be a bag of laughs. So while Gen. George Patton wouldn’t like this approach too much, holding one’s position in this regard is entirely logical. Even if it doesn’t mean a change of address or a bigger bank balance. •

College football LSU sends three to Senior Bowl BATON ROUGE, La. — Three LSU football players will be playing another game. Linebacker Kelvin Sheppard and defensive lineman Drake Nevis will join kicker Josh Jasper in the Jan. 29 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. Sheppard was a first team AllSEC selection by both the Associated Press and league coaches this season. Nevis was a second team All-America selection and first team All-SEC pick by the Associated Press and league coaches. Jasper was a first team All-SEC selection in 2010. He finished the season having connected on 28 of 34 field goals and 36 of 37 extra points. His 28 field goals is a new LSU single-season record.

MSU hires Collins as co-defensive coordinator STARKVILLE — Mississippi State has hired Geoff Collins as its co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach. The 16-year coaching veteran comes to MSU after one season as defensive coordinator at Florida International. He helped the Panthers to their first bowl win in school history, beating Toledo in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl one year after a 3-9 finish in 2009. FIU’s defense led the Sun Belt in total defense, scoring defense, pass efficiency defense and turnover margin. Before going to FIU, Collins spent two seasons as linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator at Central Florida. He will share coordinator responsibilities with Chris Wilson, who was promoted after Manny Diaz left to become defensive coordinator at Texas.

NFL Vikings: We’ll pay for a third of roofless stadium EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Though Minnesota state lawmakers appear likely to insist that a roof be part of any public deal for a new Vikings stadium, the team is sticking with its offer to pay about a third of the bill — minus whatever a roof would cost. Vikings vice president and stadium point man Lester Bagley said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday that the Vikings would prefer an outdoor stadium, but understood that might not win legislative approval when lawmakers in February take up the team’s request for a stadium funded in part by taxpayers.

Larry Csonka, the game’s MVP, gains 145 yards on 33 carries and scores a touchdown. 1986 — NCAA schools vote overwhelmingly in favor of adopting the controversial Proposition 48.

College Basketball

Florida State stuns No. 1 Duke By The Associated Press Derwin Kitchen scored 22 points and unranked Florida State pulled off its latest upset of No. 1 Duke, snapping the Blue Devilsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 25-game winning streak with a 66-61 victory Wednesday night. Chris Singleton added 18 points for Florida State (12-5, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), which made five free throws in the final 33 seconds to hold off the defending national champions. It was the third time since 2002 that the Seminoles beat a top-ranked Duke team at home. The Blue Devils (15-1, 2-1) hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost since a 79-72 setback on March 3, 2010, at Maryland. From there, they went on to win the ACC and NCAA tournaments for their fourth national title. The 25-game winning streak was the second-longest in Duke history. The Seminoles led by as many as 11 early in the second half, but the game was tight to the finish. Kyle Singler scored 20 points and Nolan Smith had 19 for the Blue Devils, who missed their first 10 3-point attempts and shot 31.1 percent overall, ending their run at a perfect season. It was the fourth time Florida State has defeated a topranked team, including in 2002 and 2006 against Duke. Kitchen, a 6-foot-4 senior guard, scored 17 in the second half and led the Seminoles with 10 rebounds.

Ohio State 68, Michigan 64 William Buford scored 19 points and No. 2 Ohio State

for the Jayhawks (16-0, 1-0 Big 12), who never trailed in picking up their 11th straight win over the Cyclones.

Syracuse 76, St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 59 Kris Joseph scored 18 points and No. 4 Syracuse remained undefeated by beating St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at Madison Square Garden. The Orange (17-0, 4-0 Big East) are off to the second-best start in school history thanks to the 2-3 zone defense they have used so effectively for years.

Pitt 72, Georgetown 57 Ashton Gibbs hit five 3-pointers and scored 22 points, and No. 5 Pittsburgh broke open the game early and remained unbeaten in the Big East with a win over No. 22 Georgetown. Brad Wanamaker added 14 points and Gilbert Brown had 12 for the Panthers, who shot 58 percent in the first half to build a 17-point halftime lead. Pitt (16-1, 4-0) has won six straight overall.

Griffinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s double-double cools off Heat By The Associated Press Blake Griffin had 24 points and 14 rebounds for his 30th double-double, and the Los Angeles Clippers ended Miamiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 13-game road winning streak with a 111-105 victory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure they were a lot more hyped up for that Christmas Day game against the Lakers and not us,â&#x20AC;? Griffin said. Eric Gordon added 26 points and Baron Davis had 20 points and nine assists for the Clippers, who led virtually the entire game against the NBAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-best team. Dwyane Wade, LeBron James added 27 and Chris Bosh had 26 points and 13 rebounds for the Heat, who had also won nine in a row overall.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a lot of suggestions to change it.â&#x20AC;? Those who finish first this year will have a new prize to admire. Instead of a traditional trophy, overall and age group winners will receive a chili bowl to commemorate their victory.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a unique prize similar to the coveted toy cannons given to winners of another Vicksburg race, The Run Thru History in March. Blount said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a coincidence. As the Chill in the Hills run gains a foothold, its organizers

from the Vicksburg YMCA are trying to build on each yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing this race continue to grow,â&#x20AC;? Blount said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is starting to consistently grow and people are saying good things about running in Vicksburg.â&#x20AC;?

Chill Continued from Page B1. Depot Street to reach the end. Some runners and walkers slipped and many reported dissatisfaction with the layout, leading to the change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a fun finish. It was too much turning and too many hills,â&#x20AC;? Blount said.


Continued from Page B1. The Magic averaged 107.7 points per game during their winning streak, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even get to 90 with an extra five minutes. Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy was in little mood to discuss the performance of the Hornets defense under lead assistant coach Michael Malone, whose father, Brendan, is an assistant with Orlando. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who was he guarding?â&#x20AC;? Van Gundy said, not cracking a smile, then shrugging his

shoulders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great coach.â&#x20AC;? Jason Richardson and Ryan Anderson were the only other Magic players in double figures and they got most of their points from outside. Richardson scored 21 points, hitting five 3-pointers, including a pair that helped Orlando erase a seven-point deficit in the final minute of regulation. Anderson hit four 3s and had 14 points. New Orleans led throughout the second half, going up

by as much as 10 points in the third quarter. The Hornets appeared to have the game in their grasp when Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driving floater made it 79-72 with 1:36 left in regulation and Orlando followed with a turnover on a failed alley-oop pass intended for Howard. Then Richardson started the comeback with his fourth and fifth 3s of the game to pull Orlando to 80-78 with 43.3 seconds to go. After Paul missed one of two free

throws, Hedo Turkoglu hit an open 3 with 6.9 seconds left and Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 16-foot jumper rimmed out at the buzzer, forcing overtime. Orlando players came skipping off the bench after Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s miss, their smiles a sign they were confident the extra period would be all they needed to extend their winning streak to what would have been a franchise-record 10 games.

Arkansas guard Jeff Peterson, on the floor, and LSU forward Storm Warren get tangled going after a loose ball during the first half Wednesday.

LSU Tigers hold off Razorback charge By The Associated Press LSU made no field goals in the final nine minutes of its 56-53 Southeastern Conference victory against Arkansas on Wednesday night. But Tigers coach Trent Johnson was still quite satisfied with coming away with a league win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good win,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like a good team, Arkansas made a run and we kept our poise. We had the opportunity to put them away at the free-throw line, but we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. But it was a good win for us.â&#x20AC;? LSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last eight points came at the foul line. Matt Derenbecker made the Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; final field goal with 9:10 left. LSU (10-7, 2-0) entered the last 60 seconds with a 53-49 lead. However, the Tigers made only 3 of 8 foul shots in the final minute. Eddie Ludwig sank one of two free throws with 10 seconds left to give the Tigers a 56-53 lead. Jeff Peterson missed a tying 3-pointer for the Razorbacks with 1 second to go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re finding a way to win,â&#x20AC;? said Derenbecker, who finished with 12 points and six rebounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re finding a way to hold on and that is all that matters.â&#x20AC;? Arkansas (11-4, 1-1) trailed by 18 early in the second half, but pulled within three at 48-45 on Delvon Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basket with 3:06 left. Julysses Noblesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; two free throws left the Razorbacks behind 49-47 with 2:20 to play. Andre Stringerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four foul shots pushed LSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to six with 1:20 remaining. However, the Tigers missed 4 of 6 foul shots to give Arkansas a chance. Marshawn Powellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two field goals for the Razorbacks made it 55-53 with 11 seconds remaining.

Arkansas coach John Pelphrey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to give LSU credit for that. They were very aggressive.

Police: Fonda finds dead body in car Los Angeles police said actor Peter Fonda discovered a dead body in a car, and they are investigating the death. Sgt. Carlton Cook at the West Los Angeles Community Police Station said the “Easy Rider” actor called 911 on Wednesday after he spotted a car parked on the side of Sunset Boulevard. Cook said the 70-year-old Fonda is absolutely not a suspect but did not have any more details. The call was first reported by TMZ, which says Fonda got out of his car and found the man Peter slumped over in the front seat. Fonda Fonda is best known for his role in the 1969 film “Easy Rider” as sex-and-drugs loving biker Captain America. Other film credits include “Race With the Devil,”“Dirty Mary Crazy Larry,” and “3:10 to Yuma.”

Archie expands reach with digital The company behind Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica is expanding its reach by making its comic-book titles available for digital download the same day their printed counterparts go on sale. Archie Comics said that starting in April, several of its titles featuring the gang from Riverdale will be released simultaneously in print and digital versions. That makes Archie Comics Publications Inc. one of the first major comic book publishers to do that and reflects what co-chief executive Jon Goldwater called Wednesday the goal of making Archie stories available to everyone everywhere.

DA wants further Lohan investigation The Riverside County district attorney’s office wants another investigation before deciding whether Lindsay Lohan will be charged with battery for last month’s skirmish with a Betty Ford Center rehabilitation technician. Prosecutors and investigators met Wednesday and decided that the office’s investigators will further probe Lohan’s alleged skirmish with Lindsay rehab worker Dawn Holland, said John Hall, Lohan spokesman for the district attorney’s office. Lohan is accused of tussling with Holland after the 24-year-old actress returned to the rehab center past curfew on Dec. 12 and refused Holland’s request to take a Breathalyzer test.

Two contestants to return to ’Survivor’ “Boston” Rob Mariano and Russell Hantz are getting another shot at $1 million. The veteran “Survivor” bad boys will join 16 new contestants for the 22nd edition of the CBS reality TV competition, the network announced today. It will be the fourth time competing for Mariano (“Marquesas,”“All-Stars,”“Heroes vs. Villains”) and the third for Hantz (“Samoa,”“Heroes vs. Villains”). Neither has ever won the $1 million grand prize. Mariano and Hantz infamously sparred as members of the villains tribe on the 20th season, with Hantz ultimately besting Mariano by forming an alliance that blindsided the veteran player with his surprise dismissal. Mariano and Hantz will join separate tribes this time, CBS said. “Survivor: Redemption Island” is scheduled to premiere Feb. 16.

Woman has 1/11/11 baby at 11:11 a.m. Tyler Ashton Marx’s lucky number is going to be one, or 11, or maybe both. The son of Jared and Leslie Marx was born at 11:11 a.m. on Jan. 11, 2011, at St. Luke’s Meridian Medical Center in Meridian, Idaho. Jared Marx is serving in Iraq and watched his son’s birth over the Internet. Leslie Marx said that Tyler was born just as the clock switched to 11:11 a.m. But Tyler Marx isn’t the only one in the family with a memorable birthday. His older sister was born on Sept. 9, 2009 — 9/9/09. A Minnesota couple’s daughter was born Tuesday with one less one. Amy Zeller and Codjo Mensah welcomed Flora Mensah to the world at 1:11 a.m.


Golden-voiced homeless man headed to rehab Family says dispute at hotel was over Williams’ resuming drinking LOS ANGELES (AP) — An Ohio homeless man whose silky voice made him a web phenomenon is headed to rehab for alcohol and drug dependency after an appearance on “Dr. Phil,” show representatives said Wednesday. Ted Williams agreed to enter a private facility after a lengthy one-on-one interview with Dr. Phil McGraw set to air Thursday, show spokeswoman Stacey Luchs said in a written statement. Williams’ wife and family also will appear to discuss what they call his persistent drinking and a Monday disturbance at a Los Angeles hotel where police briefly detained Williams and his daughter after a heated argument. Williams was staying at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa while in town to tape several TV appearances. Police called the incident “minor” and said there were no signs of physical abuse. Family members said the dispute was over Williams’ resuming drinking. “If Ted is ever going to get better, he’s got to be honest with himself and admit he’s addicted to drugs and alcohol,” McGraw said in a statement. “I’ve told him it’s not going to be easy and it’s going to take a lot of hard work. It might be a long journey for

Ted Williams and his mother, Julia Williams, left, talk with “Today” show co-host Meredith Vieira on NBC’s “Today” show in New York. him, but this is a big step in the right direction.” The appearance will be Williams’ third on the show this week. Meanwhile back in his home state, Williams has been subpoenaed in the case of a woman who was accused of drug abuse, authorities said. The Madison Press in London, Ohio, said Williams was a passenger in the woman’s car in May and is wanted at a Feb. 11 hearing over

whether deputies’ search of the car was legal. Laura Bogrees, who represents the woman, declined to comment to the newspaper on the woman’s relationship to Williams. Williams, 53, trained to be a radio announcer but found his life derailed by substance abuse and prison time in the 1990s. Last week he found instant fame after The Columbus Dispatch newspaper posted

a web video of him. Viewers were enthralled to hear a deep, honeyed professional voice coming from the shabbily dressed man. Since then, he has appeared on many news and entertainment shows, done a TV commercial for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese and was offered an announcing job with the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team.

Conan OK with Letterman, not so much with Leno BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — Conan O’Brien says he got a phone call from David Letterman over the holidays. The CBS host wanted to make sure a year of late-night TV turmoil hadn’t created a rift between them. O’Brien told reporters Wednesday that he and Letterman have “always been good. I said he didn’t owe me a phone call, but I appreciated it.” O’Brien wouldn’t be so receptive to a call from Jay Leno, who preceded and replaced him as “Tonight” show host. He said the reason is no mystery, noting, “We all know the story.” O’Brien said the experience of losing the “Tonight” show left him and his staff feeling like a band of pirates that stuck together through hard times. It’s a dynamic he believes makes the show

year’s upheaval has left him more willing to take chances onstage. “I’m very appreciative,” he said. “There’s nothing like walking away from the ‘Tonight’ show that makes you appreciative of being on the air and having a TV show. I think that feeling is coming through.” O’Brien’s show and “Lopez Tonight,” which follows it on TBS’ lineup, both have an audience with an average age of 33, the youngest among the late-night talk shows. “I like performing for chil-

dren,” he said. “I have a 7-year-old and a 5-year-old. That’s a workout. Making them laugh brings me a lot of joy.” He said his comedy has an inherent silliness that a younger audience might appreciate. Reaching a young audience is usually a strength in television, but NBC was concerned that O’Brien wasn’t expanding his audience beyond that. He acknowledged some sadness at no longer being a part of NBC, and being disconnected with some people he spent a lot of time with. The Monday after his last “Tonight” show, he called his assistant so they could meet to discuss some business. She wondered: “Where?” So they met in a store that sells pies. “There’s a whole body of work that I feel a little detached from,” he said.

Big band singer Margaret Whiting dies at 86 TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Margaret Whiting, the sweetvoiced singer who sold millions of records in the 1940s and ’50s with sentimental ballads such as “Moonlight in Vermont” and “It Might as Well Be Spring,” has died at age 86. She died Monday at the Lillian Booth Actors’ Home in Englewood, N.J., home administrator Jordan Strohl said. She had lived in New York City for many years before moving to the home in March. Whiting grew up with the music business. She was the daughter of Richard Whiting, a prolific composer of such hits as “My Ideal,” “Sleepy Time Gal” and “Beyond the Blue Horizon.” Her family’s home in the posh Bel-Air community in Los Angeles was a gathering place for such songwriters as George and Ira Gershwin, Frank Loesser, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer. It was Mercer, her father’s lyricist and close friend, who inspired the young Whiting to take years of vocal training when he told her following an early audition, “Grow up and learn to sing.” After Whiting’s father died in 1938, Mercer remained close to the family. When he became a founding partner in Capitol Records in 1942, the 18-year-old Whiting was the first singer he put under contract. Fifty-five years later, Whit-

Margaret Whiting ing and her fourth husband, Jack Wrangler, honored Mercer with a musical tribute called “Dream,” which ran for 133 performances on Broadway. It was Mercer who had coached the teenage Whiting through her first recording, of her father’s “My Ideal,” and although Maurice Chevalier and Frank Sinatra had already recorded the tune, her version sold well. She followed it with a remarkable procession of million sellers: “That Old Black Magic,” “It Might as Well Be Spring,” “Come Rain or Come Shine” and her biggest seller and signature song, “Moonlight in Vermont.” She was asked in 2001 what separated a good singer from a great one. “Being a great actress, being very dramatic,” she replied. “Some people sing beautiful

songs, but they don’t put all the meaning into them, and that’s the important thing. To read a lyric, to make the words come alive, that’s the secret.” Like most recording stars of the 1940s and early ’50s, her career was eclipsed by the rock ’n’ roll revolution, although she continued to find work in such Broadway productions as “Pal Joey,” “Gypsy” and “Call Me Madam.” She also toured regularly with the big bands of Freddy Martin, Frankie Carle and Bob Crosby and sang in cabarets, in auditoriums and with the St. Louis Symphony. With Rosemary Clooney, Helen O’Connell and Rose Marie, she crossed the country in a revue called “4 Girls 4.” In all, she recorded more than 500 songs during her career and was one of the first mainstream artists to delve into Nashville, Tenn., combining with country star Jimmy Wakely on the hit “Slippin’ Around.” She also recorded rock, novelty and sacred songs. Whiting, born in Detroit on July 22, 1924, moved with her family to Los Angeles after musicals became the rage and her father headed west to write for them. He turned out songs for Chevalier and Bing Crosby while at Paramount and composed “Hooray for Hollywood” and “Too Marvelous for Words” for Warner

Bros. Whiting recalled in 2000 how she came home from school with an all-day lollipop while her father was trying to write a song for a Shirley Temple movie. At first he was annoyed by the sticky kisses, but then inspiration struck. He called lyricist Sidney Clare and said, “How about ‘The Good Ship Lollipop’ for Shirley?” Whiting’s romance with Wrangler turned heads in the 1970s: He was an openly gay porn actor 22 years her junior. But he told the Chicago Tribune they “see things the same way, comically, professionally and romantically.” He turned his attention to theater and cabaret, crafting Whiting’s cabaret acts and several shows. Their marriage lasted until his death in 2009.

Husband thinks wife taking weight loss to dangerous extreme Dear Abby: My wife went on a diet a year ago and lost a tremendous amount of weight. The problem now is she won’t quit. Every time I suggest she stop and put a few pounds back on, she gets angry and won’t speak to me. My wife isn’t anorexic, but I have a feeling she may be headed in that direction. She has no health concerns that either of us is aware of, and when I say anything she just says, “You wanted me thin, so now I’m thin!” Please tell me what I should do before her dieting gets out of control and becomes a serious threat to her health. — Distraught Husband of a Very Thin Wife Dear Distraught: Your wife may have worked so hard to lose the weight you urged her to lose that she hasn’t figured out how to stabilize and main-



tain it. Because you are worried that she may have gone off the deep end, the two of you should make an appointment with her doctor to discuss what a healthy weight is for her — and possibly get a referral to a licensed nutritionist who can help her establish a healthy maintenance plan. Dear Abby: My husband’s sister, “Irma,” has hurt us with her words and actions many times. When the drama is over, she will suddenly send an e-mail saying she “misses”


BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You normally have a commanding presence about you, which can be either pleasant or unattractive depending upon how you use it. Currently, this demeanor will add luster to your image. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Getting a job that you deem vital done properly will be more important to you than applause. You aren’t likely to care about who gets credit for doing this or that. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — The influence you have over your intimate circle of friends could be stronger than usual. Be sure to use it in very constructive ways, such as doing the most good for the greatest number. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Your material prospects continue to look pretty good, so try to develop to the fullest any opportunity you have to bring in that extra cabbage. Make those lucky breaks count. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Listen attentively to any information coming from someone you know to be a profound thinker. Something s/he says could be beneficial to you in an extremely big way. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Some kind of a joint arrangement that you have with another could start to work out better than you had anticipated. It involves an area in which each of you has done some extra spadework. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Even though you tend to like being a loner, you are apt to discover that a situation that offers more than usual is one where you don’t mind operating in close conjunction with another. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you hope to achieve something of substance, don’t put any limitations on your talents, know-how and capabilities. Go all out, and you’re likely to impress even yourself, as well as others. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You’re not necessarily a gambler, but right now you could be rather lucky in situations that call for pronounced elements of chance. However, be sure you take a risk only for the right reasons. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Even though your progress may appear to be slow, as long as it is steady you’ll end up achieving everything you want by the end of the workday. Keep plugging like a kitchen-appliance tester. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Those whom you deal with will find you to be quite an agreeable person, which will have a ripple effect and encourage others to be the same to all those they meet. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Although you can be quite successful doing for yourself, when you go out of your way to perform specific services for others, larger than usual rewards are likely to result.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: Some time ago, my mom said you had a column on saving the life of someone who was choking. I am now babysitting for my sister’s 2-year-old twins, and I want to make sure I can help them if necessary. Is it possible that you could repeat that column? — Nameless, Hammond, La. Nameless: It took a little research, but alas, the column appeared in August 2004. Dr. Wallace: Our family can perform CPR because we all took a course sponsored by the Red Cross. Our father, who works for an insurance company, made sure my two brothers, my mom and I could all use our training in an emergency to save a life. Please print the following instructions on how to save a choking victim. Treatment must be immediate if the victim is to survive. Please follow these steps: • Ask the victim if he can talk. If he can talk and cough effectively, do not interfere with his attempts to clear his throat. If he is unable to make a sound, he is probably choking. • Strike the victim sharply, several times in rapid succession, between the shoulder blades with the heel of your hand. • If the throat remains blocked, use the Heimlich maneuver. With the victim standing or sitting, wrap your arms around his waist from behind. Make a fist with one hand and place it thumbside against the abdomen, between the navel and ribcage. • Clasp the fist with your free hand and press in with a quick upward thrust. Repeat several times, if necessary. • If unsuccessful, repeat blows to the back and the Heimlich maneuver. If the victim loses consciousness, continue with treatment for an unconscious victim. • If you find yourself choking while alone, press your own fist into the abdomen with a quick upward thrust; or press your abdomen quickly over the back of a chair or against the edge of a sink, railing or countertop. — Cindy, San Francisco. Cindy: Thanks for this important information. I’m sure many readers will tape the information to the refrigerator door or, better yet, carry a copy in their wallets or purses at all times. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

my husband and me. I do not want to seem like an unforgiving person, but I’m tired of this repeated behavior. My husband and I feel we’re better off not socializing with her and my bother-in-law, but if I respond to her e-mail, it just opens the door for yet another incident. How can we clear the air but not leave ourselves open for another attack? — Forgiven but Not Forgotten Dear Forgiven: Your feelings are understandable, but this is your sister-in-law — so you can’t dodge her forever. This doesn’t mean you must see her often. When you do, take an emotional step backward and treat her with the same respect — and degree of closeness — that you would any other acquaintance. When she acts out, absent yourself. The woman appears to have poor impulse control and a

high degree of volatility. And that’s a subject that your husband might approach (privately) with his brother-inlaw and you should stay away from. Your brother-in-law might be more receptive to the message if he hears it from his wife’s brother. Dear Abby: I have been spending more time than usual in doctors’ offices now that I care for my elderly father. Lately, a lot of these offices have added TVs to their waiting rooms. The sets are invariably tuned to 24-hour news channels on which combative people yell at each other. I think this is a bad choice for sick people. Subjecting them to this kind of programming can only raise their blood pressure. If the televisions have to be there, they should show calmer programming, like shows about food

24-hour BP monitoring is gaining acceptance Dear Dr. Gott: My doctor has indicated that he wants a 24-hour blood pressure reading on me. I just returned from my ophthalmologist’s office for a routine visit and asked him about this. I am uninformed but was surprised a specialist would not have heard of it, either. Can you fill in the blanks? Dear Reader: The use of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring for 24 hours has gained greater acceptance for several reasons. A situation known as white-coat hypertension occurs in up to 32 percent of patients, and this particular testing unit can monitor the condition. It can also delineate circadian variations in readings and pick up on drug-induced orthostatic hypotension and episodic primary hypertension. There are instances where high blood pressure readings appear to have no known cause; however, with the capability of 24-hour monitoring, it stands a better chance of identification. Primary hypertension, as indicated above, is defined as that which occurs with no known cause. It occurs in up to 95 percent of people with high blood pressure. Secondary hypertension with a known cause occurs in up to 15 percent of people with high blood pressure. and may result from a kidney or hormonal disorder, the use of specific drugs, hyperthyroidism and other conditions. Blood pressures vary and increases with age. Systolic pressure (the first number) increase until about the age of 80. Diastolic (the second number) increases until the age of 55 or 60. Then these levels stabilize or perhaps decrease. Smoking, a sedentary lifestyle, stress, eating too much salt, obesity and numerous other conditions can aggravate the condition. My guess is that your physician is attempting to zero in on whether you have white-coat syndrome, whether your readings are consistently lower at home, or whether extenuating undefined circumstances cause the problem. The monitoring device is harmless and should provide the answers the doctor is seeking. Go with it, and get to the bottom of the problem. Dear Dr. Gott: How do I get rid of nail fungus? Is there a home remedy? I have had it on my big toenail for years, following a pedicure, and it’s now on two of my fingernails. Dear Reader: Home remedies include soaking the toes or fingers in warm water to make the nails softer and easier to cut. Trim the nails, and remove as much of the debris as possible. Apply a petrolatum/menthol salve around the top and under the tip of the nail twice daily. The process may take a month or more but is worth a try. Apply decolorized iodine to affected dry nails twice daily.



Again, this will take some time but offers another option. Oregano oil applied to affected clean, dry nails once or twice daily with a cotton swab has been purported to work. Consider purchasing overthe-counter Miranel, an antifungal remedy that permeates nails and promotes faster eradication of the fungus.
