Senate panels MOVING OUT OK beefing up Last jewelry store leaving downtown openness laws By Manivanh Chanprasith

Nearly 50 years ago, at least six stores dedicated to the sale and repair of jewelry operated on Washington Street in the heart of downtown. In weeks, there will be none. Scallions Jewelers, which opened its doors at 1205 Washington in 1965, is moving to Halls Ferry Road, a newer building and parking with easier access. “I’m not doing the business I need to downtown,” said Danny Scallions, who has operated for five years the business begun by his father. N.L. Scallions operated at 1205 and soon after at 1207 Washington in the building where his son and grandson, Cory, work today. The decision to move, Scallions said, is vital because of the downturn in the economy. At the new location, 3425 Halls Ferry, Scallions said he will be lending money by returning the business to a jewelry and pawn store. “With the economy and the gold business, where gold prices are soaring to $1,400 an ounce, I’m doing more buying than I am selling,” he said. “I’m reopening into Scallions Jewelers and Pawn. We do a lot of buying gold and coins. Now we can have the best of both worlds.” Like Danny Scallions, Ed Canizaro, 63, grew up in the jewelry business on Washington Street. “It’s hard to believe that in a couple of weeks, there won’t be any more jewelry stores downtown,” said the retired owner of the former Joseph Canizaro Jewelry store, which had been Strauss-Stallings for years before Canizaro took over. “It was a different game then when there were a lot of watch repairs. Now everything is digital.” Ed Canizaro closed his store in 2004, shortly after the death of both of his parents. Others that had come and gone along the once-bustling part of Washington were Michael’s, owned by Jerry and Mike Silver; Dee’s; Busch, a chain store; and Duncan’s, a watch repair specialist owned by Claude and Roy Katherine Duncan.

By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press JACKSON — A bill designed to strengthen Mississippi’s open records and public meetings laws has passed the Senate Ethics and Judiciary B committees. Under the Senate bill, the state Ethics Commission or a chancery court could nullify any action that occurs during an illegally closed meeting. The bill also would impose a fine of up to $1,000 on any Health group person found violating targets smokthe law. ing in businessThe bill would set a es, including $100 fine per violation to anyone wrongfully casinos denying a person access to public records. The bill would require public officials who violate the law to pay reasonable attorneys’ fees to the person filing the complaint. No public money could be used to pay the fine or fees. Lynn Evans, chairwoman of Common Cause Mississippi, an open-government advocacy group, applauded the bill, which is similar to one that was unsuccessful in the 2010 session. Evans said there have been a number of incidents in recent years that show the need for the changes. She cited a 2009 meeting held by two members of the Mississippi Transportation Commission at a Jackson restaurant to discuss an Interstate 55 interchange project. The meeting had a quorum of the commission and was not publicly announced. It also excluded one of the three commissioners. “We want to make people think seriously about what they are doing as part of the public’s business,” Evans said Wednesday after the bill passed the Judiciary B Committee. Sen. Briggs Hopson, R-Vicksburg, said he’s concerned some of the violations occur because members of the public bodies aren’t aware they’re breaking the law. When the bill comes up for a vote before the full Senate later, Hopson said he would try to amend it to give public officials some latitude on violations that occur unknowingly. Currently, only a $100 fine is imposed, and

Danny Scallions, left, talks with Greg Shorter of Shorter’s Towing about moving the Scallions Jewelry safe from the business at 1207 Washington St., left, to its new location on Halls Ferry Road.

Canizaro said he fully understands Scallions’ decision to move and expand. “In hard economic times, people stop buying jewelry,” he said. “Jewelry is the easiest thing not to buy. I’m sure (Scallions) has looked into this for several years. I think he’ll do well out there.” Vicksburg Main Street Program Chair-

Edwards begins his consulting job this week BATON ROUGE (AP) — Former Gov. Edwin Edwards starts his new job this week, doing research and consulting work for businesses owned by the head of the Louisiana Democratic Party while on home detention for a federal corruption conviction. Party chairman Claude “Buddy” Leach said Wednesday that among Edwards’ first tasks is to look into geothermal exploration and wind power generation opportunities for Leach’s energy company. He said the four-term former governor also will help him with agricultural issues. Edwards, a Democrat involved in state politics for

more than 40 years, won’t be advising o r g e tt i n g a paycheck from the state Democratic Party, Leach said. Edwin “I am paying Edwards him myself. He’s working for Buddy Leach, period,” Leach said. Leach said Edwards will work 25 to 40 hours a week and will be paid by the hour. He wouldn’t disclose the hourly rate but said it is less than what he pays other employees doing similar consulting work.

The 83-year-old Edwards was released from federal prison last week after serving more than eight years for a bribery and extortion scheme to rig Louisiana’s riverboat casino licensing process during his fourth and final term, which ended in 1996. He has maintained his innocence. He is completing his remaining six-month sentence in home confinement at his daughter’s house, rather than in a halfway house. He’ll be monitored and stay in close contact with the halfway house and federal corrections officials. Leach said Edwards will work out of a Baton Rouge

office and from his daughter’s home. Anytime he works at Leach’s office, “He has to check in and check out. He can only go to lunch with me, or if I’m out of the office, he has to bring his lunch,” Leach said, citing requirements by the Federal Bureau of Prison. Leach, a wealthy lawyer and cattleman from Leesville in western Louisiana, has been involved in Democratic politics in Louisiana for decades. A longtime friend of Edwards, Leach is a former congressman and a former state lawmaker.

Pit bull taken, owner arrested after attack JACKSON, Miss. — Authorities in Jackson have removed a pit bull from its home and arrested its owner following an investigation into a dog attack that left a 9-year-old boy with wounds to his mouth and stomach.

Two men, including one already out on bond, were arrested in Vicksburg over two days and charged with the sale of cocaine. George from staff Michael reports Banks, 39, 1326 Grove St., Apt. 1, was arrested at his home at 5 this morning on a search warrant stemming from an investigation into drug activity, said Lt. Bobby Stewart of the Vicksburg Police Department. Banks was charged with sale of cocaine and possession within 1,500 feet of a school after police found around 3 grams of cocaine and a pistol in the apartment that is less than a block from Grove Street School, a part of the Vicksburg Warren School District, Stewart said. It was Banks’ second arrest this month. On Jan. 7, he was arrested for shooting into an occupied building in Greenville in December and had been released on bond. On the Vicksburg charge, Banks was being held without bond pending an initial hearing. Separately, a Louise man was released on a $25,000 bond after being charged at 2:42 p.m. Wednesday with the sale of cocaine. J.B. Hoskins, 39, P.O. Box 83, is accused of selling cocaine in the parking lot of the Horizon Casino on Mulberry Street. The arrest is a result of an undercover investigation, Stewart said.

Betsy’s Pancake House in New Orleans. The jury began its deliberation Wednesday about 7:20 p.m. and finished its work Thursday about 12:30 a.m. State law mandates a sentence of life in prison. Prosecutors argued Boudoin and at least one other person planned a burglary at McDaniel’s home days in advance. Witnesses testified they scientifically linked Boudoin’s pry bar to the break-in. According to an account of the trial, Boudoin denied the crime. He had told detectives with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office a month after the crime that he was at his home or visiting friends in New Orleans. Betsy’s Pancake House on Canal Street in New Orleans has long been a popular neighborhood hangout.

mississippi legislature Cigarette opponents fire up push for ban

Local group taking aim at youths who smoke

By Manivanh Chanprasith The local chapter of the Mississippi Tobacco Free Coalition is kicking off the new year with events tailored to a younger crowd. The Warren and Claiborne counties director, Leslie Horton, who was hired in November, said she and a 15-member advisory board are discussing projects to prevent smoking among youths and young adults. Programs will be funded through a $76,000 grant from the Mississippi Department of Health’s Office of Tobacco Control. “The purpose of this organization is to educate smoking cessation,” she said during a meeting Wednesday

Outlook flat for bills to boost alcohol in beer JACKSON (AP) — Since 2003, Lazy Magnolia Brewing Co. in Kiln has operated as Mississippi’s only brewery, churning out locally flavored beer and becoming a small business success story. It isn’t what it could be financially because of Mississippi’s laws that restrict the alcohol content in beers to 5 percent, the lowest in the nation. Leslie Henderson, who coowns Lazy Magnolia with her husband, Mark, said if the alcohol content ceiling was raised to 8 percent, it would mean a sizable jump in her sales because she could add to her product line of gourmet and craft beer, whose alcohol content by weight hovers in

I would say at least 50 percent of that goes to pay some sort of taxes. That’s a lot of tax dollars that are lost. Raise Your Pints Mississippi, an all-volunteer organization dedicated to the pursuit and enjoyment of craft beer, has supported legislation the past two sessions that would raise the allowable alcohol content

for beer in Mississippi from 5 percent to 8 percent. They’re doing the same this year, and have found a friend in Sen. David Baria, D-Bay St. Louis, who has filed the content-specific legislation and another bill that would legalize home-brewing of beer.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A judge has ordered a separate trial for one of six current or former police officers charged in a plot to cover up deadly shootings after Hurricane Katrina.

Bavaret, 41, pleaded guilty Wednesday to a felony violation of the Ports and Waterways Safety Act and a misdemeanor violation of the Clean Water Act. The safety act charge carries a maximum sentence of six years in prison and the clean water act violation is punishable by a maximum of one year in prison. His sentencing is set for April 27. Ivan Vikin, special agent in charge of the Environmental Protection Agency’s criminal enforcement program in Louisiana, said DRD Towing has a history of operating undermanned vessels with unqualified workers. “These sentences demonstrate our commitment to hold accountable those violators who damage the environment and, at the same time, endanger their workers by placing them in harm’s way,” he said in a statement.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The co-owner of a company whose towboat was involved in a major oil spill that closed part of the Mississippi River for nearly a week was sentenced Wednesday to 21 months in prison. U.S. District Judge Ivan Lemelle also ordered Randall Dantin, 46, of Marrero, to pay a $50,000 fine and ordered his company, DRD Towing Company LLC, to pay a $200,000 fine. Dantin pleaded guilty last year to obstruction of justice for causing electronic payroll sheets to be deleted before the Coast Guard could review them. The company pleaded guilty to operating vessels with unqualified and overworked captains and to negligently discharging oil.

don’t have beer, we won’t get a single vote. It’s just different in other parts of the state. “It’s frustrating because it’s reasonable. All you would do is bring our laws in line with every single other state. As it is, you’re limiting choice. We have one brewer in Mississippi. They’ve had to turn down contracts because the recipe would have resulted in a higher alcohol content. They have literally lost business because of this law. I haven’t given up on these, but if it has anything to do with alcohol, (Lt. Gov.) Phil (Bryant) doesn’t want to see it.” Bryant said he did “not see a reasonable public benefit” to increasing the alcohol.

JACKSON — Health advocates are renewing their push for a bill to ban smoking in all enclosed public places in Mississippi, including restaurants and casinos. Their efforts have been unsuccessful the past several years, and the bill will face obstacles again this year because some lawmakers — including the House Public Health Committee chairman — still say they don’t want to tell businesses what to do on private property. During a hearing of the House and Senate public health committees Wednesday, Terry F. Pechacek of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told lawmakers that the 2010 surgeon general’s report said there’s no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke. Pechacek, associate director for science in the CDC’s Office

on Smoking and Health, said he’s not taking a position for or against any particular bill. “Reports also conclude that eliminating smoking in indoor spaces is the only — I stress that word, only — way to fully protect the nonsmokers from secondhand smoke,” Pechacek said. Mike Cashion, director of the Mississippi Hospitality and Restaurant Association, said customers should get to choose whether to eat at restaurants that allow smoking. He said some members of the association support a statewide smoking ban, while others oppose it. “Government at every level, whether it’s city, state or federal, needs to be as cautious as possible about enacting policy that affects how they do business,” Cashion said. The Senate Public Health Committee will consider a bill in the coming weeks, said Chairman Hob Bryan, D-Amory.

Community colleges chief seeks board name change JACKSON — The head of the board that oversees community colleges has urged a House committee to support a name change. The bill would officially change the name of the state Board of Community and Junior Colleges to Mississippi Community College Board. Eric Clark, the board’s executive director, says the current name dates to 1986. The committee is expected to vote later.

The House bill would delete a regulation that the advanced-practices nurses enter into a collaborative agreement with a physician located within 15 miles. A hearing on the proposal was held Tuesday at the Capitol. According to the Mississippi Nurses Association, there are 2,000 nurse practitioners who fill the void particularly in rural areas that have no physicians.

Echoes of Fla. school’s N-word tiff The controversy over an Alabama publisher’s decision to drop the N-word from a new edition of Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” reminds us of the ruckus that erupted back in 2007 when Florida school officials agreed to drop the N-word from Fort Walton Beach High School’s stage production of “To Kill a Mockingbird.” In both instances, someone decided a work of literature should be sanitized to suit modern audiences. But while we opposed school officials’ decision to censor “Mockingbird,” we are not greatly bothered by “Huck Finn’s” editing. Here’s some of what the Northwest Florida Daily News wrote about the “Mockingbird” dustup in 2007: “Deleting the word amounts to censorship. Even more disappointing, it signals that school officials believe the

uglier aspects of history — and of literature based on that history — should be whitewashed to satisfy the political sensibilities of today.” Those same objections apply to the “Huck Finn” revision. Up to a point. Alan Gribben, an English professor at Auburn University Montgomery, hopes that replacing the N-word with “slave” in a combined edition of “Huck Finn” and “Tom Sawyer” will make the novels more palatable to teachers and students. We think he misses the point of the language — it captures the casual racism of the time, and undergirds a message of tolerance — and disrespects an American classic. But Twain’s novels are out of copyright, which means anyone can publish them in whatever form they choose, condensed or “corrected” or cleaned up.

They’ve done exactly that for decades. This is not censorship — unlike school officials’ attempt to fiddle with “To Kill a Mockingbird,” which WAS censorship, because it involved a government entity forcing a change in language. (The officials eventually backed down.) Nor will the sanitized “Huck Finn” limit readers’ choices. Professor Gribben’s version will be just one of many on the market. We visited a local Books-A-Million store last week and found 11 different editions of “Huck Finn” from nine different publishers. All contained the N-word. No, we don’t care much for the Gribbenization of “Huck Finn.” But Mark Twain’s works will survive this and other wrongheaded rewrites.

‘Nativist lobby’ is winning the immigration debate The failure of Congress and two presidents to enact immigration reform is plunging the nation into an ugly future. Call it the Arizonification of America. Quite apart from the ghastly shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 19 others in Tucson, Ariz., the state truly has become, as Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik described it, “a mecca for racism and bigotry” — largely over immigration. It has become a state of Minuteman vigilantism, death threats against politicians and judges, talkradio demagoguery, and bullying of Latinos and rival politicians by “America’s toughest sheriff,” Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County. Now, governors and legislators in 23 other states, including Mississippi, are considering following Arizona’s lead in directing local police to act as immigration officers. And politicians in several states are contriving to, in effect, amend the U.S. Constitution to deny citizenship to children born in the United States if their parents are illegal immigrants. All this represents a high-water mark in the influence of the “nativist lobby” — a richly funded assemblage of national and local groups organized by Michigan ophthalmologist John Tanton. The move to end birthright citi-



Polls show that 60 percent of Americans support Arizona’s police enforcement law but that just as many support giving illegal immigrants a path to citizenship.

zenship is led by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who is affiliated with the Federation for American Immigration Reform’s legal arm. Tanton’s groups are making use of economic hard times to argue that immigrants — legal and illegal — are stealing jobs from Americans and straining government budgets. It’s largely bogus because immigrants tend to take jobs that Americans won’t or can’t do and because illegal workers pay taxes but can’t get benefits. If Congress had acted on immigration reform under President George W. Bush — it failed by five votes in 2007 — or if President Barack Obama had pushed it in his first year in office, as he promised, it might have included “impact aid” for communities with large undocumented populations. In the present climate, attacks on

illegal immigrants by radio talkshow hosts, politicians, vigilantes — and Arizona’s Senate Bill 1070 — invite profiling of Latinos in general, giving the trend a racist tinge. Polls show that 60 percent of Americans support Arizona’s police enforcement law but that just as many support giving illegal immigrants a path to citizenship. But GOP victories in 2010 will make it impossible for Congress to address the immigration problem constructively. The prospect is for harsh enforcement measures to be considered in the House, then get blocked in the Senate or vetoed by Obama, producing continued federal stalemate — and state activism. House immigration policy will be overseen by two longtime restrictionists, Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, and immigration subcommittee Chairman Elton Gal-

legly, R-Calif. Smith has indicated he wants to enact mandatory electronic verification of the citizenship of all new employees — a step that might lead to mass firing of undocumented workers. Some pro-immigrant reformers say they could support “mandatory e-verify” if it were accompanied by steps to enable presently undocumented workers to gain legal status. But Republicans — and increasingly, even moderates — are opposed to anything smacking of “amnesty,” either because they fear the wrath of nativists or because of the prospect that former illegal immigrants will vote Democratic. Interestingly, one of the harshest of all anti-immigrant Republicans, Rep. Steve King of Iowa, was expected to chair the immigration subcommittee, but he was displaced by Gallegly. King blamed Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who King said is “not very aggressive on immigration.” If that’s so, there will still be intense pressure for restrictive action, including a Congressional ban on birthright citizenship from FAIR and allied groups. Around the country, however, political leaders should be worried that conditions in Arizona will spread nationwide. A brief recent history of events

in the state prepared by the National Day Laborer Organizing Network includes neo-Nazi harassment of worker sites, lawsuits charging racial profiling, gun violence and verbal war between Arpaio and Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon over raids through Latino neighborhoods. In October 2008, Arpaio sent a 60-member SWAT team on a 2 a.m. raid of the Mesa, Ariz., city hall and public library, hunting illegal immigrant janitorial employees. In May 2010, Gordon announced he had received 5,000 threats — some of violence and death — for opposing S.B. 1070. When federal Judge Susan Bolton halted enforcement of major parts of the law, she received hate mail and death threats. And so did Judge John Roll, when he ruled in 2009 that illegal immigrants could sue a local rancher on charges of harassment. Roll died in the Tucson shooting rampage at the hands of deranged gunman Jared Loughner. Loughner had nothing to do with the immigration issue, but there has been plenty of other ugliness in Arizona over it. Does America really want that to metastasize nationwide?

Powerful joint pill flying off drug store shelves Clinical trial; participants began to feel noticeable results in just days

(UMS) – Imagine a pill that can start helping you get around more easily in just a matter of days.5 Then think of how great it would be for your joints to begin feeling better too. Well there’s no reason to imagine, a team of scientists has delivered an amazing joint health supplement that’s been clinically shown to improve mobility and joint comfort.2 Now, after years of development and testing it’s hitting the shelves at all major U.S. pharmacies. This remarkable joint health pill is called Fast Acting Trigosamine®. It has been clinically shown to produce amazing results; 81% of the participants started feeling better just days after taking the recommended dosage and an incredible 100% reported their joints felt better just midway through the 8 week clinical trial.2,3,5 “I’ve never seen relief like this before,” said Dr. Joseph Dietz.1 “Our goal was to formulate Trigosamine so that people would start to feel results quickly, and based on the feedback from consumers along with the clinical data I’d say we hit the bulls-eye with this powerful pill,” added Dietz. National drug store shipments are being delivered, but as of today there’s no way to know which stores actually have product on their shelves. “Until we know all the shelves are stocked we’ll ship Trigosamine directly to people’s homes. As an added bonus, all local residents who call the Regional Health Hotline at 1-866-941-7632 before the 48-hour deadline expires can also qualify for a significant discount,” said Darla Miller, Distribution Director for the company. “We’re shipping pills on a firstcome, first-served basis; callers just have to be sure they give the bonus approval code of TG15217 when they call and we’ll take care of everything for them,” she said. “We know that people suffer-

ing with joint discomfort want Trigosamine, the phones have been ringing like crazy. We strongly recommend that local readers call right away to make sure they get their fair share,” said Miller. Trigosamine’s formula has a special combination of ingredients that until now have never been blended into a pill. It’s this special mixture that was clinically tested and is responsible for delivering the incredible results. One of the key ingredients is hyaluronate, which is a building block of “human joint oil” and known by medical professionals as synovial fluid. This remarkable molecule can absorb up to 1000 times its own weight in water helping to lubricate the joints which reduces friction while acting as a “shock absorber” allowing for effortless comfortable motion.5 “Synovial fluid is part of what allows young people to be highly active without getting sore joints. But as we age we produce less of this fluid which can force bones and joints to grind together causing nagging discomfort,” said Dr. Dietz. “This remarkable combination of ingredients is what makes Trigosamine work so well. It really helps people to move more freely and with greater flexibility,” said Dietz.5 Trigosamine’s powerful re sults are all supported by a recently completed randomized, doubleblind placebo controlled clinical study which is considered to be the “gold standard” for joint health supplements. While no pill works for everyone, during this clinical trial, every one of the participants that took this amazing supplement reported an improvement in their joint comfort. The data also shows that their joint comfort just kept getting better the entire time they were taking Trigosamine during clinical study. 2,5 On the other hand, the clinical

N PROOF THAT IT WORKS: Dr. Philip Howren was so astounded by Fast Acting Trigosamine’s® clinical results that he said; “Yes, I am thoroughly impressed with the clinical data, in fact I now take the pill myself to get the joint relief I need. It’s my number one recommendation to anyone who suffers with joint discomfort,” added Dr. Howren.4 participants that were taking the placebo experienced much different results. Those taking the placebo developed increased joint discomfort and soreness during the clinical study, which is the exact opposite of what happened to participants taking the Fast Acting Trigosamine pills. 2 “For participants to get this type of relief is simply amazing,” said Dr. Joe Dietz. “In all my years of clinical research, I’ve never seen that type of a response before. This powerful supplement is simply remarkable for those suffering with sore joints,” he added. The tough part now will be how to get it. “National pharmacy shipments are happening daily, but as of right now there’s no way to know which drug stores have it and which ones

don’t,” said Darla Miller. But for those who want to be among the first to get it the company has opened a Regional Health Hotline so people can have it shipped directly to their homes. Local readers can also qualify for a huge discount if they’re lucky enough to get through before the 48-hour deadline expires. The number to call right now is 1-866-941-7632. “Until shipments get to all the drug stores we’re shipping it directly to people who call our hotline,” said Miller. “All they have to do is

Those beating the deadline can also qualify for a significant discount.


(Actual Size) Fast Acting Trigosamine combines three powerful compounds to quickly improve joint comfort.5 1. HYALURONATE-13: One tiny molecule of this remarkable compound can hold an amazing 1,000 times its weight in water. This allows naturally occurring hyaluronate to bind water, making the joints extremely slippery allowing them to slide smoothly over one another.2,5 2. GLUCOSAMINE SULFATE-15: Review studies show glucosamine maintains healthy cartilage in the joints by inhibiting joint destroying enzymes. The compound also builds up naturally present amounts in the blood stream used to build healthy cartilage.5 3. RAPIDFLEX FORMULA-61: The patented ingredients in RapidFLEX improve overall joint performance and one ingredient increases the speed in which nutrients are absorbed.5 N HEALTHY JOINT: A Diagnostic x-ray reveals a human knee joint that has the proper amount of synovial fluid to lubricate the joint and act as a comfortable shock absorber. 5


give the bonus approval code of TG15217 when they call and we’ll take care of the rest,” she added. That makes the next 48 hours critical for those living in the local area who want this remarkable joint supplement. Those getting through to the hotline within the next 48 hours are not only guaranteed to get the pills delivered directly to their homes, but they can save money too. Otherwise, those who don’t get through may be hard pressed to get their hands on this medical breakthrough. N

Clinical strength diet pill delivers 5 times more weight loss Drug store sales soar; clinical study data confirms results (UMS) – Over 10 million doses have already been shipped to dieters so far; and sales are expected to climb even higher for the diet pill called Apatrim®. “We knew we had a great product, but it’s even exceeded our expectations,” said Ken Geis, Manager of Call Center Operations. “People just keep placing orders, it’s been pretty amazing,” he said. There are some very good reasons for this diet supplement’s remarkable success. The results from the clinical trial were very impressive. Participants taking Apatrim’s active ingredient as directed lost an average of 5 times more weight than those taking a placebo during the 4-week U.S. study.1,3 These results were achieved without changing the participant’s daily diet or exercise routine.1,4 While no diet pill works for everyone, an amazing 100% of the participants taking Apatrim as directed either lost weight or inches off of their waistline during the 4 week clinical study. Some participants experienced great results, losing as much as 8 lbs and up to 2 inches off their waist.1,3,4 The U.S. clinical study was conducted in Los Angeles; the study included healthy, overweight individuals between the ages of 31 and 73. The caloric intake and level of exercise was not disclosed. The participants were instructed

not to change the food they were eating and not to add any exercise. They were specifically told not to change their daily routine; just take two pills 30 minutes before lunch and dinner. Apatrim’s active ingredient has a known ability to help control hunger pangs, this allows people to eat the foods they want and always seem to be craving; because they’ll just want to eat less.4 Industry researchers believe that Apatrim works by suppressing a person’s appetite.4 “By suppressing their appetite, dieters consume fewer calories which can lead to weight loss,” said Dr. Joseph Dietz, Director of Health Science, Research & Development for PatentHEALTH. “But consum-

ers should always keep in mind that there is no substitute for proper diet and exercise when it comes to losing weight.” Professionals in the weight loss and fitness industries also agree that Apatrim is the real thing. Mark Loy, a personal trainer, has had some of his clients use Apatrim with amazing success.2 “I heard about Apatrim so I checked out the facts then decided to try it as a part of my training program,” Loy said. “It’s really helped some of my clients to control their eating. I’ve seen people get unbelievable results while taking Apatrim,” said Loy. “Sign me up, I’m a believer.” Dr. Joseph Dietz was impressed

with the quality of the clinical trials as well as the U.S. patent. “When I read over the clinical results, the U.S. patent and all of the other scientific support I immediately knew we needed to use this weight loss compound,” said Dietz. “The results are real; Apatrim is a great product that’s been shown to help people lose weight.” A ll of the big retail pharmacies including Rite A id and Walgreens have placed orders for Apatrim. But to make it easier for people to get it now, the company has set up a Direct Order Hotline for the next 48 hours. Starting at 8:00 am today, all

consumers have to do is call 1-866-964-2349 and ask for Dept. AP10762; orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. “For those people who call the order line to have Apatrim shipped directly to them right now, we’ll guarantee they’ll get product and they can also qualify for a 33% discount,” said Ken Geis. “But this discount will only be available through the order hotline for the next 48 hours,” he said. So for those who choose not to call or miss the deadline you may have to pay more for Apatrim or possibly run the risk of not finding it at the drug store. N On the web :

Where to get it: 1. IMMEDIATE HOME DELIVERY: For the next 48 hours call the Apatrim National Order Center at 1-866-964-2349 and ask for Dept. AP10762 (ask about the local readers discount*).

House votes to repeal Congresswoman able to stand, ready for rehab Obamacare, working to replace requirements Signs of strength

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — In the latest milestone in Gabrielle Giffords’ recovery from a bullet wound to the brain, the congresswoman stood up and looked out a window even as preparations got under way for a move to Houston, where she’ll undergo extensive mental and physical rehabilitation. Her swift transition from an intensive care unit to a rehab center is based on the latest research, which shows the sooner rehab starts, the better patients recover. Giffords’ family hopes to move the Arizona congresswoman on Friday to TIRR Memorial Hermann hospital in Houston, where her husband lives and works as an astronaut. “I am extremely hopeful at the signs of recovery that my wife has made since the shooting,” Mark Kelly said in a statement released by Giffords’ congressional office. The staff at University Medical Center in Tucson “has stabilized her to the point of being ready to move to the rehabilitation phase.” Her progress was evident Wednesday as she stood on her feet with assistance from medical staff, hospital spokeswoman Janet Stark said. During rehabilitation she will have to relearn how to think and plan. It’s unclear if she is able to speak or how well she can see. And while she is moving both arms and legs, it’s uncertain how much strength she has on her right side. A gunman shot Giffords and 18 other people Jan. 8 as she met with constituents outside a grocery store in Tucson. Six people died and the other wounded. All survivors have been released from hospitals except Giffords. The suspect in the attack, Jared Loughner, 22, of Tucson, was indicted by a federal grand jury in Phoenix Wednesday, accused of attempting to assassinate Giffords and trying to kill two of her aides.

Children look at candles that have been placed outside University Medical Center in Tucson for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. It does not include two murder charges listed in an earlier criminal complaint for the deaths of Giffords aide Gabe Zimmerman, 30, and U.S. District Judge John Roll, 63. Those are potential death penalty charges and prosecutors said they require a more painstaking process. Additional charges are likely. Loughner is in federal custody. He is set for a preliminary hearing on Monday in Phoenix. Though Giffords remains in serious condition, her recovery has amazed her family and impressed her doctors. Dr. John Holcomb, retired Army colonel and a trauma surgeon at the Houston hospital, praised the care she received in Tucson and said Giffords would “move quickly toward a tailored and comprehensive rehab plan.” Over the weekend, Giffords was weaned off the ventilator and had her breathing tube

Gabrielle Giffords and husband Mark Kelly replaced with a tracheotomy tube in her windpipe. Doctors also inserted a feeding tube to boost her calorie intake and repaired her right eye socket, which was damaged by the bullet. Since being taken off sedation, Giffords has been alert and opening her eyes more often. She also started rigorous physical therapy, dangling her legs over her bedside to exercise her muscles and sitting in a chair for periods at a time. Kelly told ABC in an

interview that she gave him a neck rub. Still, the extent of her injuries and long-term prognosis won’t be known for some time. “When she’s medically stable, there’s really no reason to keep her there,” where she could get infections and other complications long known to plague patients with long hospital stays, said Dr. Steve Williams, rehab chief at Boston Medical Center and the Boston University School of Medicine. “Over the last five to 10 years, there has been a big push to getting patients rapidly to rehab,” because research shows they recover faster and better the earlier therapy starts, he said. Giffords will likely be moved to Houston by Medevac jet, Williams said, and there is little risk of a brain injury from flying. Since part of her skull has been removed, there is less pressure on the brain, and there has been no problem with swelling during her recovery.

Kennedys to mark 50th year since famous oath WASHINGTON (AP) — Fifty years ago, President John F. Kennedy took the oath of office and called for a fresh start with a reminder that “civility is not a sign of weakness” and his famous request to “ask what you can do for your country.” Today, Caroline Kennedy was to gather members of her father’s administration, civil rights activists, astronaut Buzz Aldrin and others to celebrate the 35th president’s legacy. She and actor-comedian Jimmy Fallon also plan to talk about a new public service campaign aimed at youths.

smart money Q: My father was a very smart man and very wellversed in setting up a trust that all his (and my mother’s) holdings were in. My dad passed away about six years ago, and my mom in March BRUCE of 2009. I am the only heir and was the trustee. I have not tried to finish my parents’ estate/trust and settle with the government on taxes I might owe. So here is the deal: I know that in 2009 the federal government did not require any payment of inheritance tax if it was under $3.5 million, which, at the time of my mother’s death, it was under this. However, in Kansas it was $1 million at her death, and I figured it to be worth about $1.3



million. What is the next step that I should do to settle up the final bill? I delayed because I had a very hard time accepting my mother’s death and just now am able to function completely. I know the IRS won’t care, but that’s the truth. — Kevin in Kansas A: The overwhelming likelihood is, there will be very little or no taxes to be considered. You mentioned that there could be as much as $300,000 gross amount taxable under the laws of Kansas. Given this will still be an emotional activity for you, it will be well to your advantage to sit down with a CPA or an enrolled agent and let him handle the negotiations with the state. It should be a relatively simple proposition, and you should step back and let a professional handle it. •

CANTON (AP) — Nissan Motor Co. officially began production of its NV commercial van Wednesday — with the first vehicle going to Habitat for Humanity in Jackson. Nissan’s assembly plant at Canton underwent a twoyear, $118 million expansion to build the new vehicle, which is expected to be in dealer showrooms in February. The NV marks Nissan’s entry into the commercial vehicle market in the United States and Canada. The plant, which opened in 2003, employs 3,300 workers. It also produces the Nissan Altima sedan, Titan pickup and Armada SUV. Nissan spokesman Brian Brockman said no additional workers have been hired for NV production. The NV offering will be aimed at commercial van customers through a network of about 240 Nissan commercial dealers, with sales set to begin in the spring. The NV will compete against Ford Motor Co.’s hot-selling Transit Connect. Ford said 2010 sales of the Transit Connect jumped 41 percent over 2009 figures. The expansion, according to

Nissan employees in Canton applaud the debut of the new 2012 Nissan NV commercial van. the company, included 49,000 more square feet of plant space, overhauls to existing space and a new assembly line to handle the van. Tim Coursey, executive director of Mississippi’s Madison County Economic Development Authority, said the region has “high hopes” for the new vehicle, including the possibility it will lead to more jobs at the plant.

“The plant had the capacity and they had the niche to move into. It’s a nice fit” Coursey said. “If you’re going to make more vehicles, eventually you’ll have to hire more people.” No matter what Nissan does, Mississippi’s auto assembly business is due for expansion — and employment gains this year — thanks to the ramping up of a second auto plant.

Toyota Motor Corp.’s plant near Blue Springs, is expected to open in 2011 with an initial payroll of 1,000, eventually growing to 2,000. Along with that, auto suppliers are expected to add another 1,500 to 2,000 jobs, according to state estimates. Toyota had built most of the $1.8 billion plant when work was suspended in 2008 after the economy slumped.

Obama: Deals show China’s rise can help U.S. WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is looking to assure Americans that they should not fear China’s economic rise, using Chinese President Hu Jintao’s highprofile state visit to announce job-creating business deals worth billions of dollars to U.S. companies. On another big American concern, human rights, Hu conceded that “a lot still needs to be done” to improve China’s record. The business deals and Hu’s human rights comments were among the highlights of a ceremony-packed day seen as key to building trust between the world’s top two powers. Five years after his last visit to the White House, one that was marred by protocol blunders, Hu was feted Wednesday with the full pomp of a state visit, including a lavish dinner with some of Washington’s most powerful figures and

Stocks open lower despite drop in jobless claims NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are opening lower, a day after weak earnings gave them their worst drubbing since November. Investors have already received a round of earnings reports from Morgan Stanley and other companies along with a new reading on the job market this morning. The Labor Department said first-time claims for unemployment insurance fell to 404,000 last week, below forecasts. Morgan Stanley said its quarterly profit jumped thanks to strong revenues from investment banking. Financial stocks dragged the market lower Wednesday. The S&P 500 index suffered its largest percentage drop since November. The Dow Jones industrial average is down 27 points, or 0.2 percent, to 11,799. The S&P 500 index is down 6, or 0.5

percent, to 1,276. The Nasdaq composite index is down 21 , or 0.8 percent, to 2,703. UnitedHealth, the first of the large insurance companies to release earnings, said quarterly profits rose 10 percent, beating analysts’ expectations. UnitedHealth is the country’s second-largest health insurer based on enrollment, trailing only WellPoint. Morgan Stanley said its earnings jumped 60 percent in the last three months of 2010 thanks to strong revenues from investment banking . Profits of 41 cents a share beat analysts’ expectations by a penny. Johnson Controls said earnings rose 7 percent helped by a rebound in sales of auto parts. Google, Capital One and computer chip maker Advanced Micro Devices will report earnings after the market closes.

tougher audience when he meets with U.S. lawmakers — a few of whom skipped the dinner and have been deeply critical of China’s authoritarian government. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., called Hu “a dictator” in an interview

Wednesday, although he later tried to recant the comment. In the House, several Republican lawmakers assailed the Chinese government’s record on human rights, military expansion, financial strategy and weapons sales. Later today, Hu was to address trade and economic concerns at the U.S.-China Business Council in Washington. The Obamas welcomed a mix of Hollywood A-listers, big business types and prominent Chinese-Americans to the White House as they threw a “quintessentially American” state dinner Wednesday, complete with apple pie and ice cream, and jazz music for the entertainment. The first lady was clad in an elegant red shoulder-baring gown and the president sported a tuxedo as they welcomed Chinese President Hu Jintao on a red carpet on the White House portico.

cult for customers though Main Street repeatedly has asked business owners and employees to use alternative spots, such as those available in parking garages west of Washington. Sharp, however, sees downtown getting a breath of life through a new proliferation of consignment and antique shops. Five have opened in the past two years, including one operated by David Mitchell and Andrew Dawson next door to Scallions at 1205 Washington. “I think it’s very good if you have a cluster of them. It tends to help bring people out. I don’t see it as being over-saturated.” Scallions, who rents his current space and will rent on Halls Ferry, is nostalgic about his childhood in the jewelry store. “I wanted to go out and play with the rest of my friends, but my daddy made me wash the watch cases,” he said “I didn’t want to be there.” On Wednesday, he said, “Thank God my daddy made me do it.” Among Scallions’ treasures being moved to the Halls Ferry store that will be twice as large as the one downtown is a 2-ton, century-old safe that his father bought from the U.S. Post Office in the 1940s.

She loves her honors courses but also the success she can inspire in students who find English more of a struggle. Five or six years ago, McElwee said, she had a student who kept getting into trouble and was about to drop out of school. “I decided to make him my special project,” she said. After working with him and trying to motivate him, he not only graduated from high school, but went on to college and is an honor student today. Sharp, who taught in Starkville for one year before coming to Redwood Elementary in 2009, said the influence teachers can have in the lives of their students is her primary motivation. “It enables you to have such an impact on them,” said Sharp, who was shaped by the impact of her own sixthgrade teacher. “She was the

She was the teacher that was hard, but she challenged me and I liked that.” The awards were announced in a video presentation by Vicksburg Warren School District Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Duran Swinford, who was out of town at a professional meeting Wednesday but prerecorded her message, and opened the award envelopes on camera. The educator awards program began in 1990. Faculty at each school nominate a teacher in December. The nominees then submit resumes and are interviewed by a panel of four judges, all retired educators. Resumes and interviews are scored, and the top scorers, one from the elementary ranks and one from the high schools, win the award. Before the educator awards, annual Chamber business and ambassador awards were handed out, and guest Lonnie Moore, a training and motivational speaker from Franklin Covey, spoke about leadership in business, schools and life.

increase accountability in government by increasing fines on political candidates and officeholders who do not submit required “economic interest” forms. The fines

’Long live revolution’

Tunisian army fires warning shots during protest TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — The Tunisian army fired a barrage of warning shots in the capital today as demonstrators converged on the headquarters of the longtime ruling party, and ministers quit the party in a desperate attempt to keep their jobs. Protesters climbed over the RCD party offices in central Tunis and dismantled the sign bearing its name. Demonstrators have criticized the country’s new unity government for being mostly made up of old guard politicians from the RCD party, which was founded by ousted President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who fled to Saudi Arabia on Friday after 23 years in power. Outside the gates of the party headquarters in Tunis, the army fired rounds into the air, scattering some protesters in the noisy but peaceful crowd. The building was being protected by an army tank in addition to numerous trucks and troops. While police repeatedly shot at protesters in the weeks leading up to Ben Ali’s ouster, kill-

A board reading “Long live revolution” is seen during a demonstration in the center of Tunis Wednesday. ing several, the army has been playing more of a peacekeeping role since it was brought in to try to restore order last week. Soldiers were called in to protect strategic sites and public buildings, and have been manning checkpoints around the

capital, but there have been no reports of them shooting at unarmed civilians since Ben Ali left. It is unclear whether the army could emerge in a leadership role in this still unstable country. The crowd of protesters swelled to 1,500 people today,

many chanting “The people want the government down!” Others waved baguettes to symbolize the need to end food shortages. One father, Ahmad al-Ouni, brought his children aged 8 and 4 to the demonstration with a backpack of snacks and

juice. “I want them to smell their free country and to see the new Tunis without fear,” alOuni said while his children used colored pens to draw Tunisian flags on paper. Another demonstrator said the protests will continue until all ministers and members of parliament with links to the RCD party step down. “This revolution cannot be stolen from us and we will not tire from demonstrating, and we will come out every day if we have to,” said Mohsen Kaabi, 55, a former military officer. The caretaker government is struggling to calm this moderate Muslim nation, seen as an ally in the fight against terrorism. In a sign of the difficulties facing the government, one minister, a former member of the ruling party, resigned today, the official TAP news agency said. Zouheir M’dhaffer was a member of Ben Ali’s party but was not considered close to the ousted leader. Four other ministers resigned earlier in the week.

South accepts North Korean proposal for defense talks SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said today it accepted a North Korean proposal to hold high-level defense talks a day after the leaders of the U.S. and China called for better communication between the two Koreas. The talks could prove significant if Seoul and Pyongyang can put aside military and political tensions that soared to their worst level in years in 2010 and lay the groundwork for a resumption of long-stalled international negotiations on ending North Korea’s nuclear programs. Lower-level defense talks last year foundered over the issue of the sinking of a South Korean naval ship


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS in disputed waters. The agenda this time should include North Korean assurances that it will take “responsible measures” over the ship sinking and another deadly incident last year and not provoke further tensions, said Lee Jong-joo, a spokeswoman for South Korea’s Unification Ministry, which is in charge of inter-Korean affairs. North Korea launched artillery at a South Korean island in November in an attack that killed four people. It denies, however, attacking the navy ship that sank in March, killing 46 sailors.

50 die in Iraq attack targeting Shiites BAGHDAD — A pair of bombs blasted through security checkpoints ringing the Iraqi holy city of Karbala today and killed at least 50 people, many of whom were Shiite pilgrims headed to observe yearly religious rituals. Authorities estimated as many as 175 people were injured in the afternoon blasts, at least one of which appeared to be caused by a car bomb. No claim of responsibility was made for the attacks. But they bore the hallmark of al-Qaida and other Sunni-

dominated extremist groups that frequently target Shiite pilgrimages in hopes of reigniting sectarian violence that brought Iraq to the brink of civil war just a few years ago.

Italian soldier killed by Afghan counterpart KABUL, Afghanistan — An Italian soldier who was killed this week in western Afghanistan was shot by an Afghan soldier, not by insurgents as originally reported, NATO said today. Italy’s defense minister said at the time that one Italian soldier was shot to death and another wounded Tues-

day in Bala Murghab district of Badghis province. NATO called the incident an “insurgent attack.” Today, the coalition issued a new statement correcting the account, saying that the two soldiers were cleaning their weapons at a combat outpost when an Afghan soldier approached them with an M16 rifle and asked to use their equipment to clean his gun. The Italians saw that the Afghan soldier’s rifle was loaded and asked him to unload it, at which point the Afghan soldier shot the two Italians and escaped from the base, NATO said.

Passport delays exit from Haiti for Duvalier PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier applied for a new passport Wednesday and intends to leave the country when he gets it, a spokesman said, insisting that the ex-strongman can neither be forced to leave his homeland nor compelled to stay and face a Jean-Claude Duvalier potential criminal trial. Duvalier had been scheduled to leave today but can’t because his passport has expired, said spokesman Yves Germain Joseph. He stunned the country Sunday with his sudden and mysterious return nearly 25 years after he was forced into exile by a popular uprising against a regime widely viewed as brutal and corrupt. The spokesman said he did not know how long it would take to get a new passport but that the former dictator known as “Baby Doc” was in no rush to leave Haiti. “He is home here. He is a Haitian,” Joseph said. “Nobody can ask Mr. Duvalier or any Haitian to leave his country at any time.” Duvalier associates have been giving conflicting statements about his intentions and legal status in recent days. Earlier Wednesday, one of his attorneys said he wanted to stay in Haiti. Defense attorney Reynold Georges said that it is Duvalier’s right to remain in Haiti, but that he is free to travel. He stressed that Haiti’s government has not ordered Duvalier to return to France following his surprise return on Sunday.

Nets give up on Anthony deal

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Mikhail Prokhorov was a day away from a sitdown with Carmelo Anthony when he decided to call the whole thing off. And not just the meeting. The New Jersey Nets’ entire pursuit of Anthony, too. Prokhorov stunningly yanked the Nets from trade discussions they’d spent months engaging in, telling the team Wednesday to end the long, drawn-out trade talks with the Denver Nuggets. “There comes a time when the price is simply too expensive,” Prokhorov said in a news conference before the Nets faced the Utah Jazz. “I am instructing our team to walk away from the deal.” It wasn’t just the price that bothered the Russian billionaire, who apparently conducts his business in quietier ways. “Really, I am not happy with the way the deal has gone until now,” said Prokhorov, who fielded questions in English and Russian. “It has taken too long. It has been played out in public. The uncertainty has taken a toll on the players.” Prokhorov canceled a planned meeting with Anthony today and said there was no chance — that’s a big nyet — that the trade would be resurrected.

New Alcorn State football coach Melvin Spears tries on a hat Wednesday during a news conference in Jackson. Spears, 50, was the offensive coordinator at Alabama State last season. He replaces Earnest Collins, who left after two seasons to become the coach at Northern Colorado.

Spears returns home

New coach promises to lead Alcorn State back to glory By Ernest Bowker­ JACKSON — Sporting a dapper suit, purple tie, Alcorn State cap and his trademark sunglasses, Melvin Spears stood at a lectern in a meeting room at the Jackson Marriott on Wednesday and delivered a speech well-suited for one of the motivational seminars taking place down the hall. He hit all the right notes

and had the crowd of about 75 Alcorn alumni and boosters in the palm of his hand, especially when talk turned to winning football games and restoring the school’s proud tradition. That’s a job Spears — hired Wednesday as the 17th head football coach in Alcorn’s history — openly embraced. “This is not about how many football games we win, but we are going to win those football games. This

is about taking this institution to another level,” Spears said. “I’m elated. I’m kind of excited. I was taking that ride down that stretch of road — I remember when it used to be two lanes — and I was thinking about all the guys that have been down that stretch. I’m representing all the guys at Alcorn State University. “I thought about all those guys that have done it very, very well. We had the Godfather, Marino Casem. Then

we had Air McNair I and Air McNair II took it to another level. Now I’m the point of the spear.” Spears got the job over fellow Alcorn alums Fred McNair and Dwayne White after all three were interviewed on Tuesday. Alcorn president Dr. Christopher Brown said negotiations wrapped up around 1 a.m. Wednesday morning, but See Alcorn, Page B3.

RICHLAND — If there is such a thing as a “good” tie, St. Aloysius earned it on Wednesday. The Lady Flashes shook off a sluggish first half and rallied from a twogoal halftime deficit, tying the game on Catherine Smith’s score with four minutes left to pick up a 2-2 draw with Richland. St. Al outshot Richland 5-0 in the second half and picked up another goal from Sara Townsend early on. “The second half was better than the first. We played harder. We passed a lot and talked more,” Townsend said. The strong second half gave the Lady Flashes (7-10-1) some momentum heading into tonight’s do-or-die division game against Greenville-St. Joe. The winner will advance to the playoffs, while the loser will have its season end. “It’s do or die time right there,” St. Al coach Suzie Channell said. Richland (9-4-1) controlled the first 45 See St. Al, Page B3.

Carmouche’s 3-pointer sinks USM By David Brandt The Associated Press HATTIESBURG — Sprinting downcourt with just a few seconds remaining, Memphis point guard Joe Jackson had two choices — throw the ball to Will Barton or Charles Carmouche for a 3-pointer. He picked the right one. Carmouche took Jackson’s pass in stride and drilled a 3-pointer with a 1.2 seconds remaining, leading Memphis to a 76-75 victory over Southern Miss on Wednesday night. “At first, I was a little disappointed Jackson didn’t pick me,” Barton said with a grin. “But when it left Carmouche’s hand, it looked

College Basketball good. And then, boom! We had them. It was a great, great shot. Guess it was the right decision.” The Tigers (14-4, 3-1 Conference USA) climbed out of an 18-point first-half deficit to claim its 15th straight win in the series, dating back to 2004. Barton had 15 points to lead four Memphis players in double figures. “We had to fight and stick together,” Carmouche said. “They out-toughed us in the first half, so we had to get tough. We just had to be more physical and run our stuff.”

Carmouche’s clutch shot capped an entertaining game that featured multiple big shots in the final minutes. Memphis led 71-66 with 2:51 remaining, but Southern Miss had one rally left, taking a 74-73 lead on R.L. Horton’s 15-foot jumper with 16 seconds remaining. Horton hit one out of two free throws with five seconds left to give Southern Miss a 75-73 lead, setting up Memphis’ game-winner. Joe Jackson sprinted down the court with the basketball and hit Carmride at the 3-point line, and the junior’s shot was nearly perfect, barely touching the rim and setting off a See USM, Page B3.

Dottley was part of great Bears-Packers rivalry When the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers meet in the NFC Championship Game at Soldier Field on Sunday, one Vicksburg resident will have a personal stake in the proceedings. That would be former Ole Miss great Kayo Dottley, who played for the Chicago Bears from 1951 to 1953 and played against the Packers during the reign of legendary coach George Halas. The two teams have met 181 times, and Dottley wrote his name into the annals of the rivalry in six of those. For those keeping score at home, the Bears were 4-1-1 against their Wisconsin rivals during Dottley’s three-year tenure in Chicago. He scored his first regular-season touchdown against the Packers and had three more in his career against the Packers. His best game against the Packers was in the season opener in



1952, when he broke loose on a 44-yard run and caught a 25-yard pass in a 24-14 win. “They were a good rival,” Dottley said. “They were the only game we bused to because we were so close. They were one of the two teams we couldn’t lose to, and the other was the Cardinals (who were in Chicago at the time). If we lost to either, it was hell week afterwards.” Standing out in Dottley’s memory was the night before one of those games, when he was bedridden with an ill-

ness and felt like he wouldn’t be able to hit the field. Dottley called Halas to tell him that he was sick and probably unable to play. Halas wouldn’t hear of it. “He sent over several doctors, who hooked me up with all kinds of drips,” Dottley said. “The next day, I rushed for over 100 yards and Coach Halas said that he wouldn’t mind if I’d get sick next week, too.” Sunday’s NFC title bout will be the first time since 1941 that the two teams have met in the playoffs. It’ll be a hard-hitting, testy football game, but in Dottley’s day, the Green Bay fans ramped it up a notch. “I remember they played at old (Milwaukee) County stadium and it held about 40,000 or so,” Dottley said. “The bleachers were right against the end zone and if you scored, they threw every-

thing in the world at you. Bottles. Cans. You learned to get your butt back to the sideline. You’d get back to the bench and you’d have to hold your coat over your head because they were still throwing things.” In those days after the games, there was none of the phalanx of security who today prevent fans from entering the field. “After games, the fans would come out on the field and were chasing us,” Dottley said. “After a game, our team would run off the field as fast as we could. We didn’t stop for nothing.” As for Sunday, Dottley is hopeful that his former team can come out on top and win the NFC Championship trophy, which is named after his former coach. He has tickets to the Super Bowl in Arlington at Cowboys Stadium and hopes that he’ll see

his old team in it. The key, against the Packers, will be the Chicago pass rush, Dottley said. Considering how Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers sliced, diced and fileted Atlanta’s secondary for 366 yards and three touchdowns, the Bears will have to bring the heat early and often. “I think if they can get a pass rush and hold onto the ball enough, it should be a good, close ball game,” Dottley said. “If not, we might get our butts beat. The Bears aren’t a big scoring team. The Packers are putting points up like a machine. If we don’t blitz a lot, we don’t have a chance.” •

Brewer spent the past six seasons at Oklahoma State, including the last two as cooffensive coordinator and receivers coach. The Cowboys averaged 44.2 points and 345.8 passing yards per game last season, which both ranked at the top of the Big 12. Brewer is the son of former Ole Miss head coach Billy Brewer, who led the Rebels from 1983 to ’93.

Golf Woods announces his 2011 tournament debut SAN DIEGO — Tiger Woods officially entered the Farmers Insurance Open on Wednesday, which has become the traditional start of his season since 2006. He has won the last five times he played Torrey Pines, including the 2008 U.S. Open in a playoff over Rocco Mediate.

TENNIS Nadal cruises over Sweeting MELBOURNE, Australia — If Rafael Nadal is getting nervous as he eases closer to winning his fourth consecutive Grand Slam, he sure isn’t showing it. After his 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 win today over American qualifier Ryan Sweeting, the Spanish star appeared as comfortable talking about his next match — against 18-year-old Australian Bernard Tomic — as he was in beating Sweeting so convincingly. The other player looking as impressive as Nadal this week is U.S. Open champion Kim Clijsters, who is fast becoming a favorite for the women’s title in the absence of defending champion Serena Williams with a foot injury. Clijsters dumped former No. 1-ranked Dinara Safina out of the tournament in the first round, 6-0, 6-0.Today, she beat Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain 6-1, 6-3. Second-seeded Vera Zvonareva overcame a shaky start to beat Bojana Jovanovski of Serbia 2-6, 6-3, 6-1. Joining her in the third round from the bottom half of the draw were No. 10 Shahar Peer, who beat Sorana Cirstea 6-3, 6-2, and No. 22 Flavia Pennetta. Seventh-seeded Jelena Jankovic lost 7-6 (3), 6-3 to China’s Peng Shuai, continuing an unimpressive streak of seven losses in eight matches.


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Jan. 20 1891 — The International YMCA in Springfield, Mass., is the site of the first official basketball game. Peach baskets were used, but it wasn’t until 1905 that someone removed their bottoms. 1966 — Ted Williams is elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. The longtime Boston Red Sox star was a two time triple crown winner, a two time MVP and the last player to hit over .400 — despite losing five prime years to service in the Marine Corps. 1980 — President Carter announces the U.S. Olympic team will not participate in the Summer Olympics in Moscow to protest the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan the previous month. 1999 — After 204 days, hundreds of millions of dollars in losses and countless fits, fights and snags, the NBA lockout officially ends.

Vandy drops Rebels to 0-4 in SEC NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Vanderbilt Commodores are aching and hurting. They also are learning how to quit letting games get away from them at the end. John Jenkins led five Commodores in double figures with 20 points, and Vanderbilt beat Ole Miss 84-74 Wednesday night to send the Rebels to their worst start in Southeastern Conference play since 2000. Four of the five starters played at least 30 minutes with Andre Walker out another game with a sprained ankle and Steve Tchiengang limited with his own sore ankle. Then Festus Ezeli aggravated his left knee blocking a shot early in a game the Commodores (13-4, 2-2) needed on their home court after blowing big leads in dropping their first two SEC road games. “We just have to work on really, really holding onto leads a lot,” Vanderbilt junior Jeff Taylor said. “We seem to give up leads a lot.” They did again against the Rebels, leading by as much as nine in the first half and by 10 in the second only to see Ole Miss rally back. “All week in practice we were saying we’ve got to have leaders and dig in and fight through some things,” Jenkins said. Ole Miss (12-7, 0-4) now is off to its worst league start since dropping its first five SEC games in 2000. “You have to just keep playing, keep working hard, and eventually it’s going to come,” Ole Miss forward Steadman Short said. Ezeli had 16 points after going 10 of 12 at the freethrow line for Vanderbilt. Taylor had 15 points, and Lance Goulbourne had 14 and tied the team record

Ole Miss guard Trevor Gaskins, left, fouls Vanderbilt guard Brad Tinsley (1) as he grabs Tinsley by the arm in the second half Wednesday. Vanderbilt won 84-74. with 16 rebounds for Vanderbilt. Dawid Przybyszewski last had 16 rebounds Nov. 19, 2004. Brad Tinsley added 14 points. All the injuries meant four of Vanderbilt’s starters played at least 30 minutes with Jenkins going 39. “It took a lot of courage for

our team to win this game, and I really, really am proud of them for it,” Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings said. Chris Warren and Dundrecous Nelson had 17 apiece for Ole Miss, Zach Graham 14 and Terrance Henry 11. In this matchup of two of

the SEC’s top three scoring offenses, the Rebels can blame some cold shooting at the worst times for this latest loss. As Vanderbilt opened the second half with a 12-3 run, the Rebels missed their first five shots before Warren hit a 3 to end the drought.

Ohio State pulverizes Big Ten foe Iowa By The Associated Press David Lighty scored 18 points and Ohio State wasn’t tested in its first game as No. 1, rolling over Iowa 70-48 on Wednesday night. The Buckeyes (19-0, 6-0 Big Ten) improved to 60-4 when ranked first in The Associated Press poll. William Buford had 15 points and Jared Sullinger added 13 for the Buckeyes, topping the polls for the first time since the final three weeks of the 2006-07 regular season. That season’s team went to the national championship game, losing to defending champion Florida and finishing with a 35-4 record.

Andrew Brommer had 12 points and Bryce Cartwright added 10 for Iowa (7-11, 0-6), playing a ranked team for the fifth time in its last six games.

NEW ORLEANS — Hornets coach Monty Williams stopped trying to break down his team’s performance in basketball terms after late-game heroics by Chris Paul and Marcus Thornton produced New Orleans’ latest dramatic comeback. “Sometimes you just have to say, ‘Thank you, Lord,’ and move on,” Williams said. “This is one of those games.” Thornton broke up an inbounds pass with 14 seconds left in overtime and then finished a fast break with a reverse layup, lifting New Orleans to a 103-102 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night that extended the Hornets’ winning streak to six. Paul’s 20-point, 12-assist outing included 3-pointers at the end of both regulation and overtime to keep the Hornets’ hopes alive. He punctuated the performance by corralling the critical loose ball that was tipped by both Thornton and Trevor Ariza in the last seconds of overtime. He then raced up court and passed to Emeka Okafor, who bounced a pass to Thornton under the hoop. “We just don’t get rattled,” Paul said. “We’ve been in those situations before and we know what we need to do to win. This one right here was

a combination of hard play — and luck to.” Rudy Gay, who had 22 points, had one last shot to win it for Memphis, but his jumper near the top of the key bounced off the back rim. As the ball fell to the court, Gay grimaced and clenched his fist in disgust, while David West, who had defended the shot, celebrated with teammates a few feet away. West had 19 points, 11 rebounds and three blocked shots for the Hornets, while Okafor added 11 points and 11 rebounds. Thornton finished with 17 points in only 22 minutes. The popular former LSU star did not even get in the game until 5:20 remained in the third quarter, at which point the crowd let out a roar as if to say, “What took so long?” When Thornton started making hustle plays, it fired up his teammates. “I was like one of the Honeybees, cheering my tail off for him,” veteran guard Willie Green said, making a reference to the Hornets’ dance team. “To not play the whole game and come in and play the way he did, that’s big-time.” Thornton entered the game right about the time New Orleans began to erase a 15-point, third-quarter hole, marking the third time in four games that the Hornets won after trailing by 12 or more in the second half.

minutes of the game. Seventh-graders Aubrey Patterson and Julia Bain each scored a goal in the first half to give the Lady Rangers a 2-0 lead at halftime. Patterson’s goal came on a breakaway 90 seconds in. St. Al weathered the storm, though, and cut the deficit in half on Townsend’s goal in the eighth minute of the second half. An errant clearing pass by Richland found its way onto her foot, and she lifted it over the keeper to make it 2-1. “The other team probably kicked it and it bounced. I hit it and it went over the goalie,” Townsend said. “It was my first goal of the season, so I’m happy.” The Lady Flashes gradually took control of the game and tied it on Smith’s goal, which was eerily similar to Townsend’s. Smith — who had flubbed a breakaway chance early in the second half — collected a pass from Laura Phillips during a scrum in front of the goal and tapped it past the keeper for the tying score. “I just told them to come out and have fun,” Channell said of the second-half turnaround. “They just did it. I didn’t raise

my voice or yell at them. They just played better.”

(B) Richland 5, St. Al 1 Brett Tyler Christiansen had two goals and an assist, and Tal Tucker added a goal and an assist as Richland (11-4) beat St. Aloysius (1-10). Brayden Banks scored St. Al’s only goal, and backup keeper Will Burnett made six saves against 11 shots. Richland, though, took a 3-1 halftime lead on Christiansen’s goal with 7½ minutes left in the first half and tacked on two more scores against the Flashes’ junior varsity in the second. Trey Miles and Elliot Faler each had a goal for Richland. St. Al coach Jason Hopkins said subbing in the JV was part of a plan to prepare for tonight’s division game against Greenville-St. Joe. The Flashes can advance to the Class 1A-2A-3A playoffs if they win by three goals. “We’re going to play attacking soccer. We’re going to try and outscore the opponent by three goals, not sit back and wait for opportunities,” Hopkins said. “It’s going to be an exciting game.”

details of Spears’ contract were still being finalized. Spears’s coaching experience and track record of success made him the top choice, Brown said. Spears led Grambling to a Southwestern Athletic Conference and black national championship as head coach in 2005. In three seasons at Grambling, he went 20-14. Spears has also spent time at Morgan State and Texas Southern. Most recently, he was the offensive coordinator at Alabama State. “We had a clear profile of things we were looking for. That was championship experience, significant college experience, and knowledge of NCAA requirements,” Brown said. “By every account, Spears brought in the best and most articulate program of anyone.” Spears was a popular choice not only for his coaching acumen, but also his ability to rally a downtrodden fan base. Alcorn has won nine SWAC championships in its storied history, but none since Steve McNair roamed the Reservation in 1994. Spears will also be the Braves’ third coach in four seasons. Ernest Jones was fired after just one season in 2008, and Earnest Collins left earlier this month after two years in Lorman to become North-

ern Colorado’s head coach. “We feel like we got the right fit for the university,” said Willie McGowan, Alcorn’s longtime baseball coach and a member of the search committee that interviewed Spears. “It was very important to have stability, because we’ve fallen flat on our face in athletics. You’ve got to have a good football program so it can gain a lot of revenue for the other sports. We had to find somebody that would come in and help us. Spears is the man.” Spears said he was happy to come to the rescue of his alma mater. “I’ve had the opportunity to come here three times. This is not a press conference. This is a homecoming,” Spears said to a rousing ovation from the crowd. Spears also seemed to gain the immediate respect of his players. Quarterback Brandon Bridge, who attended Wednesday’s press conference, said the turnout and crowd reaction made it clear Spears was a coach who would reinvigorate the program. “That will definitely translate into more fans coming out,” Bridge said. “The way he was talking, he made us feel like he was one of the guys on the football team. He’s not like our dad out there. He’s going to be one of the guys.”

raucous Memphis celebration. Southern Miss (14-4, 3-2) cruised to a 29-11 lead with 7:43 remaining in the first half, but Memphis brought it to 40-29 on Joe Jackson’s 3-pointer at the halftime buzzer. “We made some adjustments, but the bottom line is the players started to execute,” Memphis coach Josh Pastner said. “We hit some big threes and our bigs played well. Everybody contributed.” Gary Flowers led the Golden Eagles with 21 points and Horton added 18. “This one hurts worse than any in my four years,” said Horton, a senior. “I just wanted so badly to get this one for coach.” The loss was crushing for Southern Miss, which was receiving votes in the Associated Press Top 25 poll for the first time in a decade. The Golden Eagles lost despite a 30-8 edge in free-throw attempts and forcing 18 Memphis turnovers. The Tigers were without starting forward Wesley Witherspoon, who missed his second straight game after being suspended for an “internal matter.” Memphis was sloppy, especially early, with 10 turnovers in the first half. But the Tigers recovered, scoring 47 secondhalf points. Chris Crawford scored 12 points and Carmouche added 11 for Memphis. Tarik Black had nine points and eight rebounds. Memphis made 9 of 17 (52.9 percent) from 3-point range, including 6 of 10 (60 percent) in the second half — none bigger than Carmouche’s, which helped the Tigers win for the fourth time in six games. “It felt great,” Carmouche said. “And we really needed it.”

Museum recovers stolen Civil War gun A Civil War revolver that was stolen more than 30 years ago from the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, Va., has turned up again. Collections Manager Catherine Wright said that the .36-caliber Spiller & Burr revolver was stolen in 1975 when the museum collection was moved to a new building. A woman in Knoxville, Tenn., discovered the gun in December in her late father’s belongings. She tried to sell it to an Ohio antique dealer who traced the gun to the museum. The woman’s father collected Civil War items. It’s not known how he came into possession of the gun. The woman will not face charges. Wright said the Spiller & Burr revolver was one of the first Confederate-manufactured handguns. This one has an estimated value of $50,000.


‘Everything feels brand-new’

’American Idol’ returns, but kinder, gentler NEW YORK (AP) — It’s a kinder “American Idol” without Simon Cowell. Television’s top show returned Wednesday with a makeover for its 10th season on Fox. Cowell, everyone’s favorite villain, is gone as a judge. So are Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres, replaced with the star power of Jennifer Lopez and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler. Original judge Randy Jackson remains. The first, two-hour episode accentuated the positive, an indication that producers are setting a different tone. Past audition shows have seemed a procession of train wrecks, narrated by Cowell’s biting putdowns. But on Wednesday, the first three contestants shown all made it through to Hollywood. And the New Jersey auditions ended with two emotional stories: the daughter of a cancer survivor from Staten Island and a boy from the Bronx who kept to his dreams despite time spent living with his family in a homeless shelter. Both are only 16, and both were given go-aheads by the judges. J.Lo in particular had a difficult time becoming J.No. She seemed in agony the first time she was shown rejecting a contestant. “Oh, my God, I hate this!” she complained. “Why did I sign up for this? I want to go home.” She got up to hug a contestant who was crying upon meeting her.

On TV “American Idol” is on Fox at 7 tonight.

When the theatrical Ashley Sullivan, of Springfield, Mass., auditioned, Jackson voted no. But when the tears started flowing, Lopez and Tyler overlooked their reservations to keep her in the competition. “It’s our 10th season, and everything feels brand-new,” host Ryan Seacrest said, adding that it was “the most

fun we’ve ever had.” It’s all a gamble for “American Idol,” no longer as dominant in the pop firmament as it once was. Last season’s finale was seen by 24 million people, down 5 million from the big night the season before. The show’s offseason turmoil was dismissed in a twominute review at the show’s beginning. “Forget what you think you know,” the show proclaimed, “because the best is yet to come.” And the show quickly signaled what producers have

been saying, that they want more emphasis on the contestants’ stories. “This isn’t our story,” Seacrest said. “It’s yours.” Tyler easily played the part of the rakish rock star, taking quick notice of the appearance of several female singers and being bleeped for off-color remarks twice in the first six minutes. “Just the right amount (of leg) shows,” the 62-year-old rocker said, looking at the dress of an energetic 16-yearold contestant from North Carolina.

Sting meets dolphin advocate, hopes for debate TOKYO (AP) — Sting wants to help save dolphins still being brutally slaughtered in Japan, but said the best way is by starting a debate, not by forcing foreign opinion. The British music star met backstage at a Tokyo concert hall Wednesday with Ric O’Barry, the star of “The Cove,” the Academy Awardwinning documentary that depicts the dolphin hunt in the town of Taiji in southwestern Japan. The two have been friends since the Sundance Film Festival two years ago, where “The Cove” had its first major showing. The film, directed by Louie Psihoyos, shows dolphins driven into a cove and stabbed by fishermen on small boats, turning the water red with blood, as the dolphins writhe in agony. “I was blown away by the movie,” Sting said before his concert. “We should not be eating dolphins.” Sting, in Asia for his “Sym-

O’Barry said Sting and his wife were among the first people to express support

for “The Cove.” The former Police frontman has spoken out on environmental and humanitarian issues around the world. He told O’Barry to stay optimistic, assuring him that word was getting out about overfishing and depletion of the oceans.

“We only evolve as a species when we are in a crisis,” Sting said. “We don’t want an empty sea.” O’Barry, 71, the former dolphin trainer for the 1960s TV show “Flipper,” said he has posted new footage on his website of the dolphin slaughter in Taiji, taken this week by one of his colleagues. Fishermen in the village say they are trying to find more humane ways to kill dolphins, but the new footage shows dolphins taken into shallow water and flapping in apparent pain. They are then stabbed by fishermen and continue to suffer for a few more minutes. O’Barry said he plans to go to Taiji later this week and meet with the town’s mayor to show him the footage. The Japanese government allows about 20,000 dolphins to be caught each year and defends the hunts as traditional, but most Japanese have never eaten dolphin meat.

Growth in digital music sales slowing considerably LONDON (AP) — The growth in digital music sales is slowing considerably, falling into the single digits for the first time since record companies began making significant amounts of money online in 2004, according to figures released today. The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry said digital sales increased by 6 percent in 2010 — only half the growth rate registered in 2009 and far from the explosive expansion seen in earlier years. The IFPI values the market in legal digital music at $4.6 billion, but says the trade in unauthorized content remains far, far more important. “As an industry we remain very challenged,” IFPI chief executive Frances Moore told journalists ahead of the report’s publication. “Something like 95 percent of downloads are still unlicensed.” The IFPI is a dogged opponent of illegal file-swapping, which it claims is ravaging the world music business. Its annual reports have charted its campaign to crack down on pirates — as well as the growth of the industry’s digital offerings, which now account

for nearly a third of the industry’s flagging revenues. Results last year were mixed. The IFPI counted some qualified successes: Britain followed the lead of countries such as France and South Korea by enacting a law that could eventually lead to persistent illegal file-sharers having their Internet access limited or suspended outright. China, one of the music industry’s biggest problem areas (music piracy rates there are estimated at virtually 100 percent) said it was working to tackle the issue. There was some good news for the IFPI on the legal front as well. In October a U.S. District Court issued an injunction preventing Limewire — which the IFPI accuses of being the country’s biggest source of illegal music downloads — to stop supplying its software. The next month, Sweden’s Court of Appeal upheld the convictions of three men operating The Pirate Bay, one of the Web’s most notorious filesharing sites. But all that has failed to quash illegal file-sharing, which the IFPI blames for taking 31 percent of its rev-

enue in the past six years. Its report cited figures showing a 17 percent drop in the number of people employed as musicians in the United States as just one of the many illustrations of Internet piracy’s reach. The IFPI renewed its appeals to governments and Internet providers worldwide to help put a lid on the problem. And while providers have traditionally resisted such calls, the report highlighted one development which might help bring them over to the other side. Increasingly, they’re the ones supplying the music. The IFPI singled out Nordic countries, where Swedish and Finnish provider Telia offers a four month free subscription to streaming music Spotify Ltd. and Denmark’s TDC offers unlimited music downloads to its mobile and broadband customers. Italy’s FASTWEB and Ireland’s Eircom have also recently begun offering subscribers similar access to millions of songs. Moore described the music industry’s emerging partnerships with providers as a winwin situation, with those who

supply the Web access getting a new source of revenue, and those who supply the music getting a new ally in its campaign to get consumers “to be responsible in their use of the Internet.” The IFPI did not provide estimates for how much such arrangements could win for the music industry, but it said that, in the U.K. alone, partnerships like the one in Sweden could earn Internet service providers more than $160 million annually by 2013.

Lesson backfires on student who pulls ill-conceived prank Dear Abby: I live in a dorm at a large university where a former friend, “Glen,” also lives. We are no longer on speaking terms because of an incident that happened last year. One day during pre-finals week, I left my room briefly to get something from a friend’s room down the hall. I left my door unlocked because I’d be back soon. When I returned a few minutes later, my laptop, my cell phone and several books full of class notes were missing. I was distraught almost to the point of a breakdown. Later that night, Glen knocked on my door and revealed that he had hidden the items in his room to “teach me a lesson” about not locking my door. I was speechless that a “friend” could do such a thing to me.



I notified the police and officials at the university. Glen was arrested for theft and charged with a misdemeanor. The university terminated his scholarship, and he was sentenced to community service. Glen is now blaming me for what happened. He claims what he did wasn’t really “stealing” and that I ruined his life. He’s harassing me at every opportunity and spreading misinformation to my friends. I believe I acted justly to what was plainly a case of theft. Am


BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Forbidden fruit could be extremely appealing to you, so you might need to be more careful than usual. Don’t unwittingly step out of line and tread on the heartstrings of a loved one. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — For some reason, it might be far easier than usual to make promises that you aren’t likely to keep. Be careful with the commitments you make. Aries (March 21-April 19) — When out on the town, don’t pretend to be anything but what and who you are. Affectations might impress you, but will do absolutely nothing for your image or personality. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Due to the fact that you have blown totally out of proportion who and what another person is, you could be in for a great disappointment when you come face to face with the truth. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — If you are a bit flirtatious, you could unwittingly flash some signals to the wrong person. Be extremely careful on whom you cast that roving, playful eye. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Although usually you’re a very good bargain hunter, today you are likely to purchase something in hopes of impressing others. This kind of extravagance isn’t worth the consequences for your credit. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Should a very clever manipulator pick up on the fact that you’re susceptible to flattery today, this person will know exactly how to pull your strings. Don’t be a puppet. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t expect the response you’re hoping for from someone you’re trying to impress, if your generous gesture has strings attached. Give without reservations. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — It’s important to acknowledge the wonderful achievements of another, but only if you are sincere. It will be a waste of time to flatter the undeserving, because insincerity will quickly be discerned. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Keep your hopes in proportion to your efforts, and solid satisfaction is possible. However, it’s doubtful that this will be possible if you’re not inclined to push yourself. No burn, no earn. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Sometimes no matter how hard we try, there always seems to be one or two people who are impossible to please. If one poor responder is a close associate, you might want to rethink your friendship. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — The world never gives us a free ride, even if you’re inclined to think so. Disappointment is extremely likely if you expect more than you rightly deserve.

This happens to be her most disliked class because she is overweight and uncoordinated. I am also overweight and not athletic, but I’m glad I had to take physical education. I live in New York state where physical education is mandatory. We also have to take state tests that include running a timed mile, sit-ups, pull-ups/flex-arm hang, sit and reach and the shuttle run. I tried my hardest and received a good grade. I did enjoy playing softball, European handball, volleyball, and most of all, archery. (I didn’t enjoy square dancing and soccer.) We also spent time working out in the weight room and playing tennis. I went to a regular public school. I’m glad that I had to take physical education because if it were optional, I probably wouldn’t have taken it. I graduated this year, but I will admit that I’m overjoyed to be finished running the timed mile. I think that physical education should be a required class in every state. — Nameless, Plattsburgh, N.Y. Nameless: Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Not all students would agree with you, however. The following letter gives a lucid picture of why some kids hate gym class. Dr. Wallace: I understand why the girl from North Carolina is mad because her school is making physical education a required subject. I’m a sophomore in a school district that requires all students to take P.E. class. I’m not good at sports and not very strong, so I don’t do well when it comes to P.E. grades. I am an A and B student in all of my other classes, but I only get a C in gym. My main concern is that because I’m not good at sports, guys call me names and I’m always the last one chosen when we pick sides for team play. We have to dress in our P.E. uniforms every day, and many times guys rip my shirt and then yell, “I can’t believe it -- this guy does have muscles, even if they are small.” I do think that exercise is good for me, but I’d like to do what I want to do when I want to do it. I sure wish P.E. was an elective course rather than a required one. — Nameless, Santa Ana, Calif. Nameless: It’s imperative that physical education teachers make 100 percent sure that harassment of any kind is nipped in the bud. Such behavior simply does not exist in well-run physical education programs. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

I wrong? How should I act in the case of Glen’s current behavior? — Victim in Texas Dear Victim: Your former friend appears to be emotionally disturbed. He has no one to blame but himself for what has happened to him. If you haven’t already done so, warn him to stop the harassment — and if he doesn’t, report it to the authorities. And don’t worry about the misinformation he is trying to spread among your friends. If they are truly your friends, they’ll believe you when you tell them they’re being lied to. Dear Abby: My husband and I have been arguing about his leaving the lights on throughout our house. He’s convinced that it adds little to our electric bill, but it bothers me that every single light is left burning. I realize there is a cost difference between incandescent

and fluorescent lighting, but leaving all the lights on seems unnecessary and wasteful to me. Could you please “shed some light” on our argument? — Lit Up in Johnson City, Tenn. Dear Lit Up: According to the Renewable Energy Policy Project in Washington, D.C., leaving a 100-watt incandescent bulb on for 12 hours a day for one month will add $40 per year to your electric bill. Multiply that by the number of bulbs in your home and it can add up quickly. Fluorescent bulbs use fewer watts than incandescent bulbs, but turning them on ages the filaments — so if they’ll be turned on again within a minute or two, leave them on. (This is not a recommendation to leave fluorescent bulbs burning constantly, just a suggestion that if they won’t be

Dry eyes at night causing great pain for reader Dear Dr. Gott: I am in great pain with dry eyes at night. I am 90. I use a lot of eyedrops and have to use warm compresses to open my lids at night. Do you have any information you can share? Dear Reader: Dry eyes are rather common as people age. The condition occurs when the normal tearing process fails to provide sufficient moisture for your eyes. The condition is known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca. Tears are a combination of electrolytes, water, fatty oils and proteins. In your case, an imbalance is occurring. Dry eyes can burn or sting. You might experience blurred vision that worsens as the day progresses, sensitivity to light and susceptibility to cigarette smoke or the wind when you are outside. Those people most likely to develop dry eyes are postmenopausal women, those with damage to the tear glands (perhaps from inflammation or radiation), those 50 and older, people who have had laser eye surgery, a history of diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren’s syndrome, a thyroid disorder, a vitamin A deficiency and more. Medications to include decongestants, antihistamines, pain relievers (such as over-the-counter ibuprofen or naproxen), blood-pressure remedies and others can be the culprit. Beyond that, excessive demands on the eyes from computer work, dry air and wind can complicate or cause the problem. You will have to determine what is causing the problem. For example, if you are on a medication with dry eyes as a potential side effect, a modification to another product or change in dosage might help. If an autoimmune disorder such as Sjogren’s syndrome or rheumatoid arthritis is to blame, perhaps a visit to a rheumatologist might be in order. Medications are available such as antibiotics, those prescribed for corneal inflammation, eye inserts that act as artificial tears and more. You might consider adding omega3-rich fish such as salmon and tuna or omega-3 supplements to your regular diet. Avoid situations that worsen your situation. If, for example, you drive a car and have the heat blowing toward your face, divert the vent so you stay warm but don’t have the direct exposure. If you walk frequently, wear eye protection such as glasses or goggles to keep the wind from striking your eyes. If the air in your home is dry, add a humidifier. And of course, avoid tobacco smoke. Dear Dr. Gott: Now that the flu season is here, could you please print a word about my pet peeve — clerks and cashiers who cough in your face when handling groceries or those that spit on their fingertips to ease opening plastic bags? Even young school children have learned to cough into their elbows.



Dear Reader: And the word is GROSS! Everyone is aware how easily germs are spread through telephone receivers, doorknobs, shopping-cart handles, TV remotes and droplet spray from a cough or sneeze. The interesting thing is that the very people who do the dastardly deed are those who complain when someone does it to them. We all need to practice a few good habits and manners. Courtesy and consideration of others is paramount.

needed after a few minutes, to turn them off.) LED bulbs are more expensive to buy, but they last longer, use less wattage and emit brighter light. However, when the illumination is no longer needed, they, too, should be extinguished. P.S. Since your husband has money to burn, why not

invest in motion sensors so he’ll have light wherever he goes without inflating your energy bills?
