Americans evacuated from Egypt

Already-read stacks bring bucks to library

By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — More than 2,400 Americans have contacted U.S. officials seeking government-chartered evacuation flights out of Egypt, the State Department said this morning. It said more than 220 have already left on the special flights and more are scheduled. The department said it expects to evacuate about 900 U.S. citizens from Egypt today and an additional 1,000 on Tuesday as anti-government protests continue to roil the country. Those wishing to take the flights from Cairo to Cyprus, Greece, or Turkey were advised to prepare for lengthy waits at the airport and to bring with them food, water and other necessities, It said the majority of U.S. citizens wanting to leave are in Cairo but that others were in Alexandria, Luxor and Aswan. At Cairo’s airport, thousands of foreigners were seeking to flee. Nerves frayed, shouting matches erupted and some passengers even had a fistfight as thousands crammed into Cairo airport’s new Terminal 3 seeking a flight home. The airport’s

The idea to sell books the library could not use was born when Friends president Shirlye Stahl, above, head librarian Deb Mitchell and others were cleaning out the library’s garage. People had donated so many books that wound up being stored in the garage that Mitchell had the idea to start selling them.

Port Gibson man held on pot charges A Port Gibson man was in the Warren County Jail today on drug charges, Sheriff Martin Pace said. Rodrickques Lipscomb, 20, 403 Pine Grove Road, was arrested at 1:31 a.m. at Clay and Second North streets for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Lipscomb, driving a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt, was stopped after a deputy observed him go through a red light at Cherry and Clay streets, Pace said. A records check showed Lipscomb was driving with a suspended license. After receiving permission from Lipscomb to search

Minimum value of the marijuana is about $2,500 to $3,000, Pace said. Lipscomb also was cited for two traffic misdemeanors. A passenger was not charged, said the sheriff. Lipscomb was being held without bond pending his initial court appearance.

of the Holy Trinity, Episcopal, Sunday afternoon. The concert had been delayed by sleet and snow earlier this month.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — More than two years ago, four relatives of former Congressman William Jefferson were charged in a plot to pocket government grant money earmarked for charitable and educational programs they ran. But nobody named Jefferson will be on trial this week when a jury is picked to hear the case. Renee Gill Pratt, a former state lawmaker and New Orleans City Council member who once dated one of William Jefferson’s brothers, will be tried alone on charges that added another stain to a family name tarnished by corruption. Two of William Jefferson’s sisters and one of his nieces already have pleaded guilty in the case. Longtime political operative Mose Jefferson, one of his brothers, had his trial postponed indefinitely because he is gravely ill with cancer. That leaves Pratt, who was Mose Jefferson’s girlfriend but isn’t a member of the oncepowerful family. Her trial was scheduled to start today with jury selection and is expected to last two to three weeks. William Jefferson isn’t charged in this case, but was convicted of unrelated corruption charges in Virginia after he was voted out of office in 2008. He was sentenced to 13 years in prison but has remained free while he appeals. The indictment in the racketeering conspiracy case against Pratt accuses her of using her House position to funnel funds through nonprofits controlled by the Jeffersons so they could enrich themselves personally and politically. Pratt also allegedly secured $300,000 in funding for two New Orleans schools to purchase computer-based teaching software sold by Mose Jefferson, who was paid a $30,000 commission for the sale, according to the indictment. Mose Jefferson later paid Pratt $3,500, the indictment says.

‘You can’t just pick up after it’s over’

Spill threatens a way of life for bayou Indians MONTEGUT, La. (AP) — Even before oil began spewing into the Gulf of Mexico last spring, Louisiana’s AmericanIndian fishing villages were on the brink of collapse because of social change and the dramatic loss of coastal wetlands. Now, Indians who’ve known nothing but fishing all their lives find their futures tied to the man handing out checks for damages, paid from a multibillion-dollar fund started after the April 20 Gulf spill. Kenneth Feinberg, the fasttalking East Coast lawyer in charge of BP PLC’s $20 billion compensation fund, met with them for the first time Friday night on the back bayous of south Louisiana at a gymnasium in Montegut, about an hour and a half from New Orleans. Dozens of fishermen showed up in shrimp boots and work clothes, speaking a mixture of French and English. They want Feinberg to compensate them not just for lost wages, but a way of life that relied on the bounty of the marshes and now is in jeopardy. “The people have been independent for so long, a lot of them will go trawling, they’ll bring an ice chest (of seafood) to maman, grandpa, auntie, the uncles and all that,” said Thomas Dardar, the principal chief of the United Houma

The associated press

Herdis Neil, whose family members belong to the BiloxiChitimacha American Indian tribe, speaks with BP PLC oil spill fund administrator Kenneth Feinberg, foreground, during a meeting in Montegut, La. Nation, the largest Indian tribe with about 17,000 members. “With the oil, how long will it last? Oil isn’t like a hurricane,” he said. “You can’t just pick up after it’s over. The Indians in Alaska after Exxon-Valdez tell us they’ve been dealing with the oil for 20 years.” Many tribes moved into the swamps to escape enslavement or forced banishment after Congress passed the 1830 Indian Removal Act. Until the 1950s, most Indians lived in isolation, rarely interacting with whites. Oldtimers recall barefoot children scampering into the woods to

hide when the first cars rattled into their villages in the 1950s. Indian children were barred from schools until the 1960s and were called “sabines,” a derogatory term. There are about 20,000 American Indians in coastal Louisiana who trace their roots to Houma, Chitimacha, Choctaw and Biloxi tribes. Tribal leaders say they’re worried many members won’t be compensated fairly, so they’ve brought on a New York City law firm to help the tribes navigate the difficult claims process. All the paperwork and docu-

mentation isn’t easy in these marshes, a place where some people can’t read or write, where lawyers and taxes often are blurry concepts. Take Price Billiot, 63, who runs a seafood dock in PointeAux-Chenes, a dilapidated and water-bound town that stretches along a bayou in the tall marshes near Montegut. He quit fourth grade to start working on a boat with his father, cleaning oysters. His wife has to help him with all the BP claims paperwork, he said — he can spell and read a bit, but not enough to handle it on his own. “The white people didn’t want me to go to school,” he said. “We couldn’t go to the school; we couldn’t go to the bar up the bayou.” With hurricane damage still to fix and business slow from the spill, he was gloomy about the future. “Every year it gets worse. You can’t make a living,” he said as a rooster and peacock crowed in the grasses across the road. A fishing boat abandoned long ago sat rotting into the mud across the bayou. “When I was young you could make a good living.”

State Hospital workers rake in overtime pay JACKSON (AP) — Mississippi’s Department of Mental Health has paid out almost $66 million in overtime over the past 5½ years, nearly half of it to employees at the Mississippi State Hospital. Five workers earned more than their yearly salary in overtime last year. “I think it’s odd, I guess is a good word, that an employee would make more in overtime than they would in a salaried position,” said Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Doug Davis, R-Hernando. Department spokeswoman

Crash victim’s family upset that woman out on bond JACKSON (AP) — Relatives of a woman killed in a wreck three years ago are upset they weren’t told in advance about a bond hearing for the woman accused in that crash. Alice Marie Wilson of Utica was released in December on house arrest and $50,000 bond, after a psychiatrist said her schizophrenia was in remission. She’s accused of killing Alice Faye Clausell, 69, of Moss

Point, while fleeing from police three years ago. “It’s just not right that no one told us about a hearing or that a bond was being considered,” said Clausell’s daughter Kimberly Arnold. Wilson, 33, is scheduled for trial March 7 on a charge of fleeing a law enforcement officer resulting in a death of another person. If convicted, she could get up to 40 years in prison.

Wendy Bailey said the agency is working to cut overtime. House Appropriations Committee Chairman Johnny Stringer, D-Montrose, said that since the department runs 24-hour facilities, overtime is likely. “I just didn’t realize it was that much overtime,” he said. For example, a campus police officer at the State Hospital, added $38,465 in overtime to his $38,365 salary for 2010. A State Hospital direct care supervisor, whose yearly salary was $29,056, earned $33,822 in overtime.

OUR OPINION

Politics A new landscape For members of Congress, public appearances won’t be the same — not for a long time. In the days after the horrifying shootings in Tucson, Ariz., in which Democratic U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was the primary target, dozens of questions crossed the minds of those who watched news reports of the massacre on TV or read about it in newspapers or via the Internet. One is just now starting to emerge: “Where was the security?” It’s certainly a fair question for those who don’t follow politics or the movements of those who practice it closely. After the rampage in which six people were killed and 13 wounded — including Giffords — many are wondering why police weren’t staffing the public political event in the parking lot of a grocery store.

The answer is simple: They almost never do. Indeed, one of the great qualities of the citizen legislature in America is that members of the House of Representatives in particular have a tight relationship with people who live in their districts and visit freely without fanfare. Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., makes public appearances all the time. Usually, these include a couple of aides who staff his Washington office. Other representatives, Democrat and Republican, frequently travel alone all around. Police or any semblance of a security detail aren’t usually part of a congressman’s entourage. That could change. Already, some members of Congress have announced that they plan to take security more seri-

ously. Democratic Rep. Heath Shuler, a former pro football player from the North Carolina mountains, says he plans on carrying a gun to future meetings in his district. Shuler received a death threat in 2009 and has had a permit to carry a gun ever since. While most have stopped short of Shuler’s precautions, other members of Congress acknowledge that bulking up security at offices and public events might be wise. One, Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre, told the Fayetteville Observer that he might be more selective about locations where public events are held, seek police protection or even install metal detectors. Such measures are perhaps wise in the world as it is today. But it’s sad nonetheless.

Few Democrats announcing run for statewide office Candidates are lining up to run for statewide office in Mississippi, but the list of Democrats is thin. Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree and Clarksdale attorney and businessman Bill Luckett have filed to run for governor. And, it’s a given Democratic Attorney General Jim Hood is seeking a third term in his job. But those three are the only serious Democratic names being bandied for statewide office at this time. On the other hand, numerous Republicans are throwing their hats in the ring. Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant is running for governor, leaving his current position wide open. Gulf Coast businessman Dave Dennis is running for governor as a Republican, as is James Broadwater, who’s been a state employee. Republican Sen. Billy Hewes, an insurance agent and real estate broker from Gulfport, is running for lieutenant governor. Republican State Auditor Stacy Pickering is seeking re-election. And, Missis-

Some contend the political climate in Mississippi could make it difficult for Democrats to get elected. Part of the blame can be laid at the feet of the Democrats themselves.

sippi Public Safety Commissioner Steve Simpson has announced his bid for the GOP nomination for attorney general. Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann and state Treasurer Tate Reeves haven’t announced their plans. It’s widely believed Reeves will run for lieutenant governor. Hosemann is mum on whether he’s seeking re-election or another statewide job. Sen. Lee Yancey, a Republican from Brandon, is running for treasurer. State Personnel Board executive director Lynn Fitch is gearing up for the treasurer’s race. Lucien Smith, a former staff attorney for

Gov. Haley Barbour, has also raised money and is seen as a potential candidate. Statewide candidates have until March 1 to file their qualifying papers. Some contend the political climate in Mississippi could make it difficult for Democrats to get elected. Part of the blame can be laid at the feet of the Democrats themselves. Will Rogers once said, “I’m not a member of any organized political party. I’m a Democrat.” That’s apt phrasing for Mississippi. Few would argue the state party lacks organization, and it’s been beset by infighting in the past.

Brad Chism, a Democratic strategist with a consulting firm in Washington, D.C., said there could be more movement on the Democratic front as the qualifying deadline nears. “These are difficult times because of the cost of the election, and the lack of party infrastructure,” Chism said. “People thinking about running for treasurer, secretary of state or other offices look first at their political strength and weaknesses,” Chism said. “They also look at the financial reality of the race, and that has a chilling effect for Democrats in Mississippi, which is not an affluent state and many of the traditional sources of revenue for Democratic candidates aren’t plentiful.” In addition, Republicans have been able to effectively paint Democrats — regardless of philosophy — as liberals. Capitol Hill Blue Dog Democrats have tried to distance themselves from those labels, but it hasn’t always worked. Last November, U.S. Reps. Gene Taylor and Travis Childers tried to promote

their conservative values as they campaigned against Republicans who tied them to Washington Democratic policy decisions. Both lost their jobs. It wasn’t that long ago that nearly every statewide office was held by a Democrat. In the early 2000s, Ronnie Musgrove was governor, Mike Moore was attorney general, Eric Clark was secretary of state, Marshall Bennett was treasurer, George Dale was insurance commissioner and Lester Spell was serving as a Democrat as agriculture commissioner. Spell is now a Republican and he’s not seeking re-election. Mississippi House Education Committee Chairman Cecil Brown, a seasoned Democratic lawmaker from Jackson, concedes the party hasn’t been good at recruiting candidates this election cycle. “But,” he said, “that’s because we haven’t had to in the past.”

Gates: Helping world’s poor is a good investment SEATTLE (AP) — Bill Gates said he feels a responsibility to speak up for the world’s poorest because they’re likely to be hit hard as economic woes force governments to reduce contributions to foreign aid.

Chrysler cuts 4Q net loss as comeback continues DETROIT — An optimistic Chrysler narrowed its net loss significantly in the fourth quarter from a year ago and forecast a net profit for 2011 as it continued a comeback from bankruptcy protection. Chrysler, which is controlled by Italy’s Fiat Group SpA, predicted it would make $200 million to $500 million this year, setting the stage for an initial public stock offering that could take place in the fourth quarter. The U.S. government gave Chrysler $12.5 billion to get through bankruptcy in 2009. In exchange, the government got a 10 percent stake in the company. Chrysler still must repay $5.8 billion on the loans, and the government hopes to

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS get the rest of its money back in the stock sale. Chrysler, which has not turned a quarterly profit since leaving bankruptcy, said today that it lost $199 million from October through December, far better than the $2.7 billion it lost during the same period of 2009. Karl Brauer, senior analyst for the Edmunds.com automotive website, said 16 new or revamped models, many of which hit showrooms toward the end of last year, have given the company momentum to back its prediction of turning a profit.

Dems push aviation bill as jobs program WASHINGTON — Democratic leaders said they will bring an aviation bill that includes $8 billion for airport construction to the Senate floor this week, pitching it as a jobs measure. The bill — introduced by Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., last week — is identical to a bill that passed the Senate last spring on a 93 to 0 vote. That

bill later stalled when Congress couldn’t reach agreement on several side issues, including distribution of landing slots at Reagan National Airport near Washington, the fee airline passengers pay to support airport improvements and a labor dispute between delivery giants FedEx and United Parcel Service. This time Democrats are predicting a smoother flight for the measure. Today, Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and other Democratic leaders will release an estimate by the American Association of Airport Executives that says the airport construction funds will support the employment of 90,000 workers.

Practice from the past

Funeral pyres light the way for closure in Colorado town CRESTONE, Colo. (AP) — Belinda Ellis’ farewell went as she wanted. One by one, her family placed juniper boughs and logs about her body, covered in red cloth atop a rectangular steel grate inside a brick-lined hearth. With a torch, her husband lit the fire that consumed her, sending billows of smoke into the bluegray sky of dawn. When the smoke subsided, a triangle-shaped flame flickered inside the circle of mourners, huddling against zero-degree weather. “Mommy, you mean the world to me and it’s hard to live without you,” called out Ellis’ weeping daughter, Brenda, 18. The outdoor funeral pyre in this southern Colorado mountain town is unique. Funeral and cremation industry officials say they are unaware of any other place in the nation that conducts open-air cremations for people regardless of religion. A Buddhist temple in Red Feather Lakes, Colo., conducts a few funeral pyres, but only for its members. Ancient Vikings lit funeral pyres to honor their dead, and it is accepted practice among Buddhist and Hindu religions. But the practice is largely taboo in the U.S. Ellis’ ceremony and others seem somehow fitting for Crestone, home to an eclectic mix of spiritual and religious groups that include Zen and Tibetan Buddhists and Carmelites, said Stephanie Gaines, director of the Crestone End of Life Project, the volunteer group that performs the cremations.

Eighteen-year-old Brenda Ellis, right, watches as the body of her mother, Belinda Ellis, 48, is cremated. While Belinda Ellis “did not have a religious bone in her body,” said her husband, Randy Ellis, she had attended a Crestone funeral pyre and told her family it was what she wanted. Ellis, 48, died of a heart attack Jan. 9 and was cremated three days later. By all accounts, Belinda Ellis was a free spirit. During the last years of her life, she lived with her husband and her boyfriend, Skip Benson, 59. “We had a friendship between the three of us that very few people could share,” said Randy Ellis, 51. Belinda’s relatives described her as a giving and stubborn person who loved motorcycles, the outdoors and smok-

ing pot. Amid the scent of juniper and burning wood was a smell of marijuana from a bag that someone dropped into the pyre. Someone joked they also should have poured in some Pabst Blue Ribbon. Quiet, otherworldly chimes sounded from crystal bowls that a woman played at the beginning of the service. On a table were flowers and pictures of Belinda Ellis and her family. Her relatives carried her from a car on a wooden stretcher and placed her on a steel grate. The site is encircled by a bamboo fence. “What was a physical body will become one with the sky,” said William Howell, a project volunteer.

Inmate accused of strangling lone guard in prison’s chapel SEATTLE — An inmate is suspected in the death of a Washington state corrections officer who was found strangled with a microphone cord in the prison chapel where she led religious programs, authorities say. Jayme Biendl, 34, Jayme who had Biendl raised concerns about being the sole guard in the chapel, was found dead Saturday night at Monroe Correctional Complex about 30 miles northeast of Seattle, Department of Corrections spokesman Chad Lewis said. It was the first time a guard has been killed at the 100-year-old facility, he said. Byron Scherf, a 52-year-old inmate, was reported missing during a routine count Saturday. He was found in the chapel lobby and told officers he planned to escape. Scherf is serving a life sentence without parole after being convicted of firstdegree rape and kidnapping in 1997 under the state’s “three-strikes” law.

Salt

PRECISION FORECAST

Continued from Page A1. of having higher blood pressure due to sodium intake. For everyone else, the government continues to recommend about a teaspoon a day — 2,300 milligrams, or about one-third less than the average person usually consumes. The assault on salt is aimed strongly at the food industry, which is responsible for the majority of sodium most people consume. Most salt intake doesn’t come from the shaker on the table; it’s hidden in foods such as breads, chicken and pasta. It has long been known that too much sodium increases the risk of high blood pressure, stroke and other problems. But cutting the salt won’t be easy. The prestigious Institute of Medicine has said it could take years for consumers

to get used to the taste of a lower-salt diet. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said the government is trying to be realistic while targeting the highest-risk groups. “I think it’s important for us to do this in a way that doesn’t create an immediate backlash,” he said. “If we fail to get our arms around the obesity epidemic, especially in our children, we’re going to see a significant increase in health care costs over time.” Several large food companies have already introduced initiatives to cut sodium and introduced low-sodium alternatives, but it’s unclear if the industry will be able to cut enough to satisfy the new guidelines. The Food and Drug Administration has said it will pressure companies to take voluntary action

before it moves to regulate salt intake. Dr. Howard Koh, assistant secretary at the Health and Human Services Department, said food companies will have to make cuts for the reductions to work. “Even the most motivated consumer can make only a certain amount of progress before it’s clear that we need extra support from the food industry,” Koh said. Consumers still have some control. To reduce the risk of disease from high sodium intake, the guidelines say people should: • Read nutrition labels closely and buy items labeled low in sodium. • Use little or no salt when cooking or eating. • Consume more fresh or home-prepared foods and fewer processed foods, so

they know exactly what they are eating. • Ask that salt not be added to foods at restaurants. • Gradually reduce sodium intake over time to get used to the taste. Other recommendations in the guidelines are similar to previous years — limit trans fats, reduce calorie intake from solid fats and added sugars, eat fewer refined grains and more whole grains, consume less than 300 mg per day of cholesterol. The guidelines also recommend eating less than 10 percent of calories from saturated fats — full-fat cheese and fatty meats, for example. The government promotes these guidelines to consumers by using a symbolic pyramid. Introduced more than five years ago, it doesn’t specify recommended

amounts of foods but directs people to a USDA website that details the guidelines. That replaced an old pyramid that specified what to eat after surveys showed that few people followed it. Vilsack said USDA may come out with a new icon, but that won’t be for a few more months. For now, the government wants consumers to focus on the guidelines themselves. He says the recommendations — coupled with efforts from industry and other government campaigns for healthy eating, such as first lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative — should bring about some change in the country’s diet. “I don’t think it necessarily has to take a generation or two to see some progress,” he said.

Library Continued from Page A1. lack of a lot to put in on?” Eventually, a site on the west side of Monroe Street, opposite what is now the Memorial Rose Garden, was purchased, and on April 5, 1915, H.H. Havis, a local contractor, won the bid for the library’s construction. The building was ready for opening ceremonies March 7, 1916. “Everyone greatly admired the fine building, with all its excellent equipment and furniture,” wrote Bragg. “One of the speakers pointed out that all it needed now was books.” The Carnegie-funded library remained in use for more than 50 years before it was outgrown, and the

library moved into its current building in 1979. Today, The Bookmark brings in about $500 or $600 a month, Stahl said, and the Friends group has about 100 dues-paying members. Proceeds from book sales and money raised through the $7 dues fund a number of library projects and provide Christmas bonuses for the library staff. The Friends have bought furniture, had chairs upholstered, provided prize money and guest speakers for the library’s creative-writing contests and made it possible for the library to buy about 300 DVDs for its circulating collection.

Each summer, they also pay for Dorian the Magician to perform at the final kids’ summer reading program party and buy refreshments and goodie bags. The Bookmark is wellstocked with audio books, large print books, non-fiction

and shelves double-stacked with fiction. There’s a large selection of paperbacks, shelves of children’s books and a table loaded with recent magazines. Though some of its stock comes from discarded library books, most are items

Greek petroleum employee Markos Loukogiannakis, who arrived in Athens on a flight carrying 181 passengers including 65 U.S. citizens, said confusion reigned at Cairo airport. “In a 22-kilometer (14-mile) route from our suburb to the airport we had to get through 19 checkpoints, including nine manned by civilians,” he said. “There were lots of people gathering at the airport and it was very difficult to get in.” He said security had deteriorated sharply over the past three days in Cairo after police withdrew from the streets. “There was a wave of attacks by criminal elements who engaged in burglaries and wrecked shops and banks. There was a lot of shooting and residents took up the burden of protecting

their property,” he said. In a geopolitical shift, even Iraq decided it would evacuate its citizens, sending three planes to Egypt — including the prime minister’s plane — to bring home for free all those who wish to return. Thousands of Iraqis had once fled to Egypt to escape violence in their own country. About 800 Iraqis had left Cairo, said Capt. Mohammed al-Moussawi, a crew member for the prime minister’s office. He said the flights would continue. Nearly 320 Indian nationals were evacuated from Cairo to Mumbai on board a special Air India flight and another 275 expected to reach Mumbai later in the day. An Azerbaijan flight carrying 80 adults, 23 children and the body of an Azeri Embassy accountant killed in the unrest arrived in Baku.

China sent two planes and was sending two more charter flights Tuesday to help pick up an estimated 500 Chinese stranded in Cairo. It issued a warning urging citizens not to travel to Egypt and had embassy personnel hand out food and water to Chinese passengers at the airport. That echoed earlier warnings from Britain, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark and the Czech Republic, which all advised against all nonessential travel to Egypt. Many European tour companies canceled trips to the country until Feb. 23, others left the cancellations open until further notice. One big question was what to do with the tens of thousands of tourists in other parts of Egypt. Tour operators say they will fly home all their customers this week

Making matters worse, check-in counters were poorly staffed because many EgyptAir employees had been unable to get to work due to a 3 p.m.-to-8 a.m. curfew and traffic breakdowns across the Egyptian capital. “It’s an absolute zoo, what a mess,” said Justine Khanzadian, 23, a graduate student from the American University of Cairo. By midday, an announcement filtered through the crowd instructing groups of Danish, German, Chinese, British and Canadian passengers that their governments had sent planes to evacuate them — causing a stampede to the gates.

Britain estimated there were around 30,000 U.K. tourists and long-term residents in Egypt, but said today it has no plans to evacuate British citizens. Foreign Secretary William Hague has advised against all but essential travel to Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor and Suez. Polish Foreign Ministry spokesman Marcin Bosacki, however, said food shortages were starting to be felt at Egyptian resorts and some restaurants were refusing to serve foreigners.

Sidelines Watson outduels Mickelson in Open

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Bubba Watson tempered his celebration when he rolled in a 12-foot birdie putt on the final hole Sunday at Torrey Pines, knowing Phil Mickelson could still make eagle on the par-5 closing hole to catch him. It played out just as Watson imagined, right down to Mickelson’s caddie tending the pin on the eagle attempt. There was just one twist — Mickelson wasn’t anywhere near the green. In a surprising decision that gave way to brief drama, Mickelson laid up on the 18th hole and had to settle for a birdie when his lob wedge from 72 yards away stopped 4 feet short of the hole. The winner of the Farmers Insurance Open turned out to be Watson, who made clutch putts on the final two holes for a 5-under 67 and was sitting in the scoring trailer at the end, oblivious to how the final hole played out. “I don’t know how close he hit it. I don’t know what he made on the hole,” Watson said. “I just know that I won, because that’s all I was worried about.”

LOTTERY La. Pick 3: 9-2-7 La. Pick 4: 2-9-4-2 Weekly results: B2

The first time St. Aloysius tangled with Madison-St. Joseph, it was a disaster. Round two was more competitive, but the end result was the same. Now, having clawed their way through three consecutive elimination games, none of that matters to the Lady Flashes. All they need is one game, one perfect night, to erase all of those bad memories. St. Al hosts St. Joe in the Class 1A-2A-3A girls North State championship game on Tuesday night. The winner advances to Friday’s state title game at Clinton High School against either St. Andrew’s or Our Lady Academy. “They are fast, but we are too. I think they have a little more experience on their side, but we’re doing a great job getting better every game we play,” St. Al coach Suzie Channell said. Tuesday’s game is a rematch of last year’s North State final, won by St. Joe. St. Al, however, has taken a long and tough road to get back. After losing nine seniors from last year’s squad, the Lady Flashes (10-9-1) regrouped with a roster that includes no seniors and only two juniors. They lost twice to St. Joe in the regular season — a 7-0 debacle in early January and a 2-0 loss at Balzli Field — and then survived a tough overtime game against Greenville-St. Joe to qualify for the playoffs. Since then, they’ve beaten Philadelphia 4-1 and South Pontotoc 1-0 to get back to the semifinals. Madison-St. Joe advanced with a pair of

MHSAA playoffs Tuesday, 6 p.m. Madison-St. Joe at St. Al 5-0 victories, over Choctaw Central and the Mississippi School of Math and Sciences. Although Madison-St. Joe won the Division 4 championship, St. Al will host this game because it has played fewer home games in the playoffs. Channell said that

would be an advantage for her team. “It’ll be a good thing for us. We’ve played really well when we were at our place last time,” Channell said. “Knowing we’re playing at home, in a really big game, and it’s somewhere we’re not supposed to be, it’s a rivalry, all of those things help.” So will a defensive change Channell made before the last meeting with St. Joe. She assigned Madison Lumbley,

one of the team’s top defenders, to mark St. Joe’s leading scorer Oriana Odell. The move kept Odell in check and gave St. Al a chance. Channell is hoping history repeats itself on that front, and changes where the big picture is concerned. “I really don’t know if they’ve ever beaten them,” said Channell, in her first season as coach. “That right there is a goal to play well and achieve.”

The 2011 Mississippi Association of Coaches soccer allstar game will feel more like a Warren County scrimmage.

Turner, Falcons make big impact in Pro Bowl By The Associated Press HONOLULU — A nice day in Hawaii won’t erase the memory of an ugly playoff exit for the Atlanta Falcons, but it has to help ease the pain. From coach Mike Smith to quarterback Matt Ryan, tight end Tony Gonzalez, running back Michael Turner and wide receiver Roddy White, the Falcons were everywhere in the NFC’s 55-41 Pro Bowl victory on Sunday, a game that never was as close as that final score would indicate. “The Falcons were well represented today,” Gonzalez said in an understatement. Atlanta had the best regular-season record in the NFC at 13-3 but was embarrassed at home 48-21 by the Green Bay Packers in the divisional playoffs. Still, the Falcons’ previous success led to nine players being selected to the Pro Bowl, more than any other team, with Smith running the show. When Atlanta fullback Ovie Mugheli rumbled in for the first of the NFC’s seven touchdowns, the stage was set. Falcons players figured in four TDs. Philadelphia’s Michael Vick was the starting quarterback but didn’t play after the first quarter. Most of the time behind center went to Ryan, whose first pass was intercepted. But he was 6-for-6 for

The associated press

Tennessee Titans and AFC running back Chris Johnson is tackled by New Orleans Saints and NFC safety Roman Harper (41) during the third quarter of the Pro Bowl Sunday. 91 yards and two touchdowns the rest of the half as the NFC opened a 42-0 lead and was up 42-7 at the break. Ryan’s prettiest play of the game was a 25-yard TD pass to Arizona’s Larry Fitzgerald, a timing play that

brought to mind the receiver’s masterpieces with the now-retired Kurt Warner. Ryan finished 9-of-13 for 118 yards. Gonzalez, in his 11th Pro Bowl, had three catches to boost his Pro Bowl-record total to 42. His 4-yard TD

pass from Ryan gave him four for his career, more than any other receiver. Turner had a workmanlike 53 yards rushing on eight carries. Quarterbacks threw to White five times and he caught all of them, for 69 yards. Not to be lost in the praise was Smith and his staff. Carolina’s Jon Beason, whose 59-yard interception return in the fourth quarter gave the NFC its 55 points, matching the Pro Bowl record for most by one team, praised the coach’s game plan. That’s right, a game plan in the Pro Bowl. “We had a great scheme going against those guys,” Beason said. “The Atlanta coaches did a good job of putting us in a position to make plays and we did.” MVP DeAngelo Hall had one of his team’s five interceptions and returned a fumble 34 yards for a touchdown to help. He won a new Cadillac for his efforts. “I was just about to buy another SUV,” the Washington Redskins cornerback said, “so to come out here and grab one for free, I like that.” AFC quarterbacks Philip Rivers, Peyton Manning and Matt Cassel each threw firsthalf interceptions in a performance ugly even by the historically low standards of this game. Fittingly for this strange

contest, center Alex Mack of Cleveland scored the final touchdown on a 67-yard pass play that featured two laterals with 16 seconds left. Pro Bowls are, by their nature, laid-back affairs, seemingly played at half speed by players whose biggest concern is to get on the plane home without injury. The AFC, though, took that attitude to an uncomfortable extreme early on before coming back to outscore the NFC 41-13. The NFC led 42-0 after Steven Jackson waltzed through the AFC defense for a 21-yard touchdown — and there still was 41⁄2 minutes left in the second quarter. But just when it appeared it would be the most onesided game in Pro Bowl history, eclipsing the Joe Theismann-led 45-3 NFC rout in 1984, the AFC scored three touchdowns in a row. The last came on the game’s seventh turnover, when Devin Hester tried to hand the kickoff return to Hall, but the ball fell to the turf. Montell Owens of Jacksonville scooped it up and ran it in 10 yards for the score to make it 42-21 with 10 minutes left in the third quarter. With his seven extra points, tying a Pro Bowl record, along with two field goals, David Akers moved ahead of Morten Andersen (45) for most career Pro Bowl points with 52.

NBA Pacers fire coach Jim O’Brien INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Pacers fired coach Jim O’Brien after failing to make the playoffs each of the past three years and squandering a promising start this season. Team president Larry Bird announced the move. Assistant coach Frank Vogel will take over the team on an interim basis. The Pacers went 121-169 under O’Brien and are 17-27 this season, having lost seven of their past eight games. O’Brien was ejected in his final game, a 110-89 loss to Chicago on Saturday.

Doc Rivers fined after ejection LOS ANGELES — Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers was fined $15,000 for leaving the court too slowly after being ejected from a game in Phoenix. Rivers was tossed during the second quarter of an 88-71 loss to the Suns on Friday night. He wasn’t certain exactly what he had done to earn the fine, but didn’t mind it. Rivers said the lightness of the fine indicated the NBA wasn’t terribly angry.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Taurasi swears her innocence Diana Taurasi insists she did nothing wrong. The former Connecticut women’s basketball star says she hadn’t even heard of the banned stimulant modafinil until she found out she had tested positive for it while playing in Turkey. And no matter what those results showed, Taurasi is adamant that she never used performance-enhancing drugs. In her first interview since testing positive in December for modafinil, Taurasi and her lawyer blamed the Turkish lab where the sample was analyzed. Taurasi was the first prominent WNBA player to test positive for a banned substance. She said she intends to return to the WNBA when the season begins in June. The Phoenix guard has led the league in scoring the last four seasons and signed a multiyear extension with the Mercury last August.

AUTO RACING Pruett helps Ganassi win Daytona DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — America’s longest endurance race came down to a one-lap sprint. No surprise, the winner ended up being the guy with more wins in the Grand-Am Series than anybody else. Three-time and defending series champion Scott Pruett drove the last leg of the Rolex 24 at Daytona and held off Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Scott Dixon during a final restart.

The 5-foot-11 guard becomes the shortest player in the NBA to get a triple-double. 1993 — The Dallas Cowboys win the Super Bowl, beating Buffalo 52-17 and giving the Bills their third straight loss in the title game, a league record. 1999 — John Elway gets his second straight Super Bowl ring, weaving his magic for the final time during the Denver Broncos’ 34-19 win over the Atlanta Falcons. 2006 — Kobe Bryant scores 40 points in Los Angeles’ 130-97 win over New York. The NBA’s leading scorer averages 43.4 points in 13 games in January, joining Wilt Chamberlain as the only players in NBA history to average 40 or more points in a month more than once. Bryant also averaged 40.6 points in February 2003.

Hornetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rally falls short in Phoenix By The Associated Press

The associated press

New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul (3) gets past Phoenixâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steve Nash, left, in the second quarter Sunday. Paul scored 26 points, but the Hornets lost 104-102.

Instead of savoring backup center Marcin Gortatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s careerhigh 25 points, the Phoenix Suns were left wondering how they nearly blew an eight-point lead in the final 18 seconds. The New Orleands Hornets were wondering what the officials were looking at in the wild final sequence in the Sunsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 104-102 victory Sunday night. Grant Hill blocked Marcus Thorntonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inside attempt with 3.9 seconds left, escaping a goaltending call, and Chris Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desperation 3-point attempt â&#x20AC;&#x201D; after contact with two Suns â&#x20AC;&#x201D; missed the rim as time expired. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, I wish we could have closed the game out in the end,â&#x20AC;? Suns coach Alvin Gentry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They made a couple of shots and we fouled them on a 3-point shot. That got the game close... It was

a great win against a really good basketball team.â&#x20AC;? Paul led New Orleans with 26 points. The Hornets were coming off a loss Saturday night in Sacramento that snapped their winning streak at 10. Paul made a 3-pointer with 17.2 seconds left to cut it to 104-99, Trevor Ariza then stole Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s errant pass and Paul made three free throws with 12 seconds left after he was fouled by Channing Frye. The Hornets got the ball back with 10 seconds left when Steve Nash stepped out of bounds trying to control Hillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wild inbounds pass. New Orleans wanted a goaltending call on Thorntonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s late try. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hard call when the ball hits the backboard and then gets blocked,â&#x20AC;? Paul said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made it too hard on the guys who had to make a tough call at the end.â&#x20AC;?

St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pounds third-ranked Blue Devils By The Associated Press

Teams that beat Duke have reason to celebrate. Teams that blow Duke out of the building should be able to party all night. So, how long will the St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s players be allowed to celebrate Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 93-78 victory over No. 3 Duke â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a game that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as close as the final score indicated? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach Lav said we had two hours to celebrate and then we have to get ready for Rutgers,â&#x20AC;? senior forward Justin Burrell said, referring to firstyear coach Steve Lavin and the Red Stormâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next opponent on Wednesday. Two hours? It will take longer than that just to go over the highlight plays of a game that St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had won by halftime. Those last 20 minutes were just a formality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt like we were ready. The guys wanted to play this game,â&#x20AC;? Duke guard Nolan Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to be here but they came out from the jump ball and kicked our butts.â&#x20AC;? It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (12-8) beat the Blue Devils (19-2), it was the way it happened. St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was finishing a stretch of eight straight games against ranked teams. This win was its third in that span. It was enough to have Lavin waving his arms to the crowd at a media timeout in the second half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re caught up in the moment of the game and I wanted St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fans to come to the party in terms of supporting the players on the court,â&#x20AC;?

Duke forward Ryan Kelly (34) tries to block a shot by St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forward Justin Brownlee in the first half Sunday. St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s routed No. 3 Duke, 93-78. that moment it was just wanting to jumper cable the crowd and bring energy for our players because they deserved a pat on the back and some appreciation for the yeomanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort and the cohesive brand of basketball they had been playing against the defending national champion.â&#x20AC;? The Red Storm, who had lost three straight and five of six, took control early and had a 46-25 lead at halftime. Duke, which came into the game shooting 40 percent from 3-point range, missed its first 10 shots from behind the arc and made 1 of 13 in the half.

The Blue Devilsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; overall shooting wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a whole lot better as they shot 29.6 percent (8 of 27) in the half â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they entered the game shooting 48.1 percent from the field â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and they were careless with the ball as well, committing 11 turnovers, one off their season average for a game. St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had a lot to do with how poorly Duke played, using a three-quarter court trap to force the Blue Devils into low percentage passes that almost all seemed to either be stolen by St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or just thrown away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an Xs and Os thing

today,â&#x20AC;? Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt we were not ready to compete, we had blank expressions on our faces and guys werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talking and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my responsibility.

From staff reports Mississippi State shot just 28.1 percent from the field in the second half Sunday, helping Florida hang on for a 67-60 victory in Starkville. Mississippi State trailed by just three points at halftime, but never took the lead in the second half. After Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ndidi Madu put the Gators ahead 38-35 with a jumper two minutes into the second half, Mississippi State never got closer than three points again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is all about 40 minutes of focus,â&#x20AC;? Mississippi State coach Sharon Fanning-Otis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to do whatever it takes to take control of a basketball game and put ourselves in a position to win. Each game has a series of defining possessions. Right now, we are coming up empty on those

possessions.â&#x20AC;? Mary Kathryn Govero led Mississippi State (8-12, 0-8 Southeastern Conference) with 22 points and Porsha Sharon Porter had 18. Fanning-Otis Azania Stewart led Florida (14-9, 4-5) with 19 points and Jordan Jones scored 18.

Vandy 71, Ole Miss 42 Vanderbilt used a 24-2 run in the first half to pull away early Sunday, and went on to a 29-point rout of Ole Miss (9-11, 2-5 SEC). Angela Puleo led Vanderbilt (14-7, 5-3) with 20 points, and Elan Brown had 11 points and 11 rebounds. Shae Nelson scored 12 points for Ole Miss,

which overcame an 18-point deficit in its first meeting with Vandy this season but was never in this one. Ole Miss has not won in Nashville since 1987.

Memphis 78, USM 58 Nicole Dickson scored a game-high 20 points, Jasmine Lee had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Memphis (16-6, 5-3 Conference USA) snapped Southern Missâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; three-game winning streak. Memphis went on a 12-0 run midway through the first half to open a 16-point lead at the break. Southern Miss never got closer than 11 points in the second half. Jamierra Faulkner led Southern Miss (9-12, 4-4) with 17 points and Geneshia Dunbar had eight points and 10 rebounds.

LSU 47, Georgia 41 Katherine Graham had 14 points and Adrienne Webb added 11 as LSU (15-8, 5-4 SEC) held off No. 20 Georgia (16-5, 6-2). Georgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 41 points tied for its fewest in an SEC game and marked its lowest scoring output in any game since a 73-36 loss to Stanford in the 2010 NCAA regional semifinals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn the ball over,â&#x20AC;? LSU coach Van Chancellor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come out and foul. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up second-chance points.â&#x20AC;? LSU led 27-21 at halftime as Georgia managed just eight field goals while turning the ball over nine times. LSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s LaSondra Barrett, a former Murrah star, tied her career high with 12 rebounds and added six points.

Indonesian star jailed for sex scandal One of Indonesia’s best-known pop stars was sentenced today to 3 1/2 years behind bars after sex tapes with his celebrity girlfriends found their way to the Internet, riveting and dividing this predominantly Muslim nation. Liberals said the embarrassment suffered by Nazril “Ariel” Irham — who insists the videos were not intended for public viewing — was Nazril “Ariel” punishment enough. But hard-liners were outIrham raged, saying the singer was contributing to the country’s moral decline. Hundreds charged the gates of the courthouse in the city of Bandung after the verdict was read out, yelling “Too light! Too light,” as he sped off in an armored police car. Ariel, lead singer of the country’s most popular band, Peterpan, was the first celebrity to be charged under Indonesia’s strict anti-pornography law, which came into effect in 2008 despite strong opposition from the public and members of government. Ariel insists the tapes were stolen from his house and posted online without his knowledge, but presiding Judge Singgih Budi Prakoso said the pop star did nothing to prevent their widespread distribution. He sentenced him to 3 1/2 years in jail — well short of the maximum 12 years — and slapped him with a $25,000 fine.

Redford relieved Sundance is ending Founder Robert Redford is glad this year’s Sundance Film Festival is coming to a close. The 74-year-old actor said it’s “always a relief” when the 10-day event wraps because “it’s really exhausting.” He’s happy, though, about the success of this year’s festival, with about 45 films being sold — up about 220 percent from 2010, when only 14 films were sold. Robert Redford Redford believes the studios are taking an interest in the movies at Sundance because they’re realizing “there are audiences” for independent films.

Man’s dead wife wins him $15,000 A Minnesota man got a bittersweet reminder of his late wife, after she won a share of a small lottery jackpot even though she died in November. Paul McCauley of Cottage Grove jokes that his wife, Ginny, found one final way to get in the last word. Ginny died of cancer in November. She had never told her husband that in 30 years of working at a grocery store, she and two colleagues always played the lottery. Even after she got sick, Ginny kept contributing money. Paul said one of the friends called him around Christmas, telling him he’d won a third of a $45,000 jackpot.

Edwards birthday bash will be roast in N.O. NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Two-and-a-half weeks after his house arrest is over, former Gov. Edwin Edwards will be feted at an 84th birthday bash in New Orleans. Edwards’ brother Marion wanted the party on his brother’s birthday, Aug. 7, but accepted July 30 so it could be in the ballroom where Edwin Edwards held his election-

night parties, Andrea Thornton, spokeswoman for the Monteleone Hotel, said Sunday. Edwin Edwards Edwin began six Edwards months of house arrest on Jan. 13, com-

pleting a 10-year federal term for racketeering riverboat licenses. That will end in midJuly. Thornton said the ballroom can hold 450 guests and likely will be packed. When word of the party began to spread, so many people wanted to participate that it changed from a party to a roast, Thornton said.

The list of roasters keeps growing and there’s no decision yet on whether to have entertainment beyond the roast, but there will be an admission charge to cover the cost of the ballroom, drinks, a fancy meal and any additional entertainment, Thornton said. Asked if admission would be in the $50 or $150 range, she said, “Oh, more than $150.”

Going retro

Atlantic City embracing Roaring ’20s party vibe ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — From flapper costumes to swing dance contests and whiskey-soaked cocktails, Atlantic City is going retro, embracing the Roaring ’20s in a big way. It’s a new strategy to attract new business by invoking the round-the-clock party vibe of a bygone era and cashing in on nationwide interest in the hit HBO show “Boardwalk Empire” about Prohibitionera Atlantic City. Casinos are dressing workers in period costumes, serving drinks from the speakeasy era, teaching jazz and swing tunes to entertainers and sponsoring dance contests like the Lindy, the Charleston and the Shimmy. Resorts Casino Hotel, whose hotel was built in the 1920s, re-branded itself in a Roaring ’20s theme. Caesars and Bally’s Atlantic City held ’20s-themed events, and their parent company is considering sponsoring a “Boardwalk Empire” tour of Atlantic City, featuring the real-life spots where political and rackets boss Enoch “Nucky” Johnson held court and partook liberally of the shore town’s vices — most of which he controlled, as well. For 30 years, until he was finally sent to prison in 1941

Atlantic City has been taking a beating the past four years, ever since the first casinos opened in the Philadelphia suburbs in November 2006. Since then, the nation’s second-largest gambling market has lost nearly a third of its business, falling from $5.2 billion in casino revenue in 2006 to $3.6 billion last year.

‘King’s Speech’ rules obvious batch of Oscar bait LOS ANGELES (AP) — This Academy Awards season seems all over but the coronation. “The King’s Speech” won top prizes over the weekend from Hollywood actors and directors, securing its standing as the film to beat at the Feb. 27 Oscars, whose winners mostly look like foregone conclusions. Front-runners coasted to victory at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards — lead performers Colin Firth as Queen Elizabeth II’s stuttering dad in “The King’s Speech” and Natalie Portman as a ballerina going off her rocker in “Black Swan,” plus supporting players Christian Bale as a boxer on the skids and Melissa Leo as his doting but domineering mother in “The Fighter.” “The King’s Speech” also won the SAG award for overall acting ensemble. A day earlier, the film was an upset winner at the Directors Guild of America Awards, where its filmmaker Tom Hooper triumphed over David Fincher, who had been considered the favorite for “The Social Network.” While Fincher’s Facebook chronicle dominated at the Golden Globes and critics’ awards early in the season, momentum abruptly shifted to “The King’s Speech” in barely a week. “I’d like to thank security for letting me into the building,” Firth said as he accepted his SAG trophy. His joke points up how quickly “The King’s Speech” usurped front-runner status from “The Social Network,” which appeared to have a smooth ride toward a best-picture and director win at the Oscars. The previous weekend, “The King’s Speech” was a surprise recipient for the top award from the Producers Guild of America. Last Tuesday, the film led Oscar contenders with 12 nominations. The directors and actors guild honors, the last major ceremonies before the Oscars, may have sealed the deal for “The King’s Speech” at Hollywood’s biggest party. Only six times in the 62-year

film claims best director at the Oscars usually takes best picture, too. All four Screen Actors recipients preceded their wins with Golden Globes and are safe bets to pick up Oscars. Firth and Bale have appeared unbeatable almost from the moment their films began screening for critics and Hollywood insiders. If there’s room for surprises at the Oscars, it’s likely in the actress categories. Portman faces tough competition from Annette Bening as a stern lesbian mom in “The Kids Are All Right.” Bening’s a beloved figure in Hollywood who has been nominated for Oscars three times previously without winning, so she might have a shot. And the supporting-actress lineup includes a dazzling performance from 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld in her screen debut as a girl who hires a boozy lawman to track her father’s killer in the Western “True Grit.” This is the one Oscar category where teens and preteens have shone, with past wins by 16-year-old Patty Duke (“The Miracle Worker”), 11-year-old Anna Paquin (“The Piano”) and 10-year-old Tatum O’Neal (“Paper Moon”).

Man’s dog outranks wife in pecking order Dear Abby: I met my husband, “Monty,” shortly after he lost his wife of 14 years. Monty has two dogs, but the one I have issues with is “Ginger.” I have never seen a dog act like her. Ginger acts more like a wife than a dog. She clings to Monty to the point he doesn’t have any time alone. She’ll sit outside the shower until he is done. If he takes a bath, Ginger sits on the edge of the tub. She runs to him when he gets home from work to greet him before I do. As she’s running ahead of me, she looks back as if she’s worried I’ll beat her to him. It’s as if she thinks she’s his wife! She sits next to Monty on the couch when we’re watching television. I hesitate telling her to move so I can sit next to my husband because he treats his dogs like gold. His excuse? “They were here for me when my wife died.” I’m sympathetic to that, but where do I fit in? Ginger bullies the other dog by growling at her and bumping into her when the

other one tries to get Monty’s attention. I’m feeling jealous because sometimes my husband neglects my physical needs and is more affectionate with the dogs. What do I do? — Jealous of the FourLegged Mistress Dear Jealous: When Monty’s first wife died, Ginger became the alpha female in the house. Your husband was depressed and lonely, and he allowed or encouraged it. It is now up to him to retrain Ginger so she learns to defer to you because your place is beside your husband — and not just on the couch. If you haven’t told Monty that you need a higher rank in the pack, do it now. And if he isn’t willing to make some changes, including taking care of more of your physical

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: In the near future, don’t be fearful of attempting to do things or of getting involved in careerrelated activities that you’ve never tried before. Two major qualities that will contribute to your success will be originality and resourcefulness. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Even if certain excellent trends and currents that are presently stirring are not totally visible to you, you’re still likely to unwittingly take advantage of these favorable financial influences. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Should you be going up against some prestigious individuals, don’t try to run for cover. Dame Fortune is inclined to side with you in situations where major issues are at stake. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Take advantage of the good position you’re in to make adjustments to some shifting conditions that have been taking place. Use your instincts and experience as your guide. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — This can be a luckier day for you than usual, so devote much attention to something or someone who has captured your fancy. For the moment, focus on your latest interest. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Let your strong desire to produce prevail and you might even surprise yourself with the success you encounter. It’s important not to be afraid to think bigger than usual. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Don’t be surprised if your ability to absorb and catalog tricky information and facts is much better than usual. This is an excellent time to tackle the subjects you deem difficult. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — It can be one of those days when you tend to be more fortunate than usual, but not necessarily through your own efforts. Lady Luck can take all the credit for encouraging events and people to please you. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Some of your biggest and best breaks are likely to come through teaming up with others, especially if your alliances or contacts are of a social nature. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Although you enjoy socializing, your greatest enjoyment will be derived through occupying your time with productive endeavors. You just need to make sure that what you do is constructive and helpful. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — If you are given a choice of different types of social activities in which you can participate, select an outlet that involves a group that is lively and young in spirit. You need to keep it fresh. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Be watchful for a monetary opportunity of a very unique nature to arise, which you can turn to your advantage. This can be a day for upgrades in your financial circumstances. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — It can be an extremely favorable period when it comes to enterprises or ventures in which you can participate, especially those that are spawned by your own fertile imagination.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: My best friend invited me to go with her to a Christmas dance sponsored by her church. It sounded like fun, so I went. After about three dances, when no one had asked me to dance yet, I saw this guy standing alone and got the courage to ask him to dance with me. I’m no raving beauty, but I’ve been told I’m pretty. This guy was fairly cute, but he was no Brad Pitt. I walked up to him and said, “I’d like to dance the next dance with you.” He looked me up and down, and all he said was, “Later.” I felt like a total idiot. I just wanted to crawl into a hole and hide. But I said, “Thank you,” and I walked away with my head held high. Instead of feeling sorry for myself, two dances later, I went up and asked another guy if he cared to dance. His answer was yes. To make a long story short, Kevin and I have dated three times, and we are going out again this weekend. I really like him and I know he cares very much for me. I’m now thrilled that the first guy turned me down because I might not have met Kevin. To all the girls out there who felt miserable when a guy turned you down after you had the courage to ask him for a dance or a date, keep trying. Look what happened to me. — Angie, Salt Lake City. Angie: I’m proud of you! Your words will offer courage to many young ladies. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

needs, insist the two of you talk to a licensed marriage counselor. (And maybe to the Dog Whisperer.) Dear Abby: I’m a college student who has been looking up friends from my past, ranging from elementary to high school. One of my close friends from elementary school was a boy named “Martin.” We were close because we were sort of the outcasts of our class. I recently contacted a friend who knew Martin. He told me that Martin had become addicted to hard drugs and is now in jail. I have not been able to stop crying over this. Martin was the one who made me happy about school — a kindred spirit. I blame myself because I moved over the summer break and never got a chance to say goodbye to Martin. When I visited the school again, Martin came up to me, gave me a hug and demanded to know why I left him! We had been there for each other when others had not. I know I can’t change the past, but I feel if I had been

there I could have stopped him from getting into the trouble he did. I can’t think about our good times without being sad about his grim future. How can I get over this? — Crying for a Friend in Louisville, Ky. Dear Crying: Please stop blaming yourself for the path that your childhood friend chose. People do not become drug addicts because a friend from elementary school moved away. Whatever led to his substance abuse, it wasn’t you. Because this has hit you so hard emotionally, make an appointment to visit your student health center and talk to a counselor about your feelings of guilt. While what Martin has done to himself is tragic, it’s still not too late for him to kick his habit and straighten out his life. This has nothing to do with you, and you should not make it your problem.

Praise given to doctor for alcoholism article Dear Dr. Gott: I am writing in regards to your article that appeared in my newspaper on June 26, 2010. A counselor wrote to you asking about her husband’s habitual drinking habits. Your response to her was extremely accurate. Your description of the disease and its profound effects on a family was one of the best descriptions I have read outside of the literature that the Al-Anon Family Groups publish. It is truly wonderful to read such a straightforward, honest answer about alcoholism and its effects on the family in our local newspaper. Unfortunately, the public is uneducated about alcoholism and relates to the disease, much like this writer, as shameful behaviors that can be changed “if he loved me enough.” When family members don’t understand the nature of alcoholism, they are prone to go to great lengths to get the alcoholic to stop drinking, as your response suggests. That is when the family members become sick, too, from attempting to battle a disease over which they have no control. I am also encouraged by your response to try Al-Anon. There IS a solution for family members, and Al-Anon can provide a ray of hope to anyone who walks through the doors of a meeting. In addition to the education about alcoholism and the effects on family members, there are practical solutions to deal with the problems that come with the disease. As a member, I have seen miracles happen within the program. I have witnessed members transform their lives and live happy, fulfilled lives, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. Thank you for your response to the counselor. The power of an article can be far-reaching. I hope to see a family member who is still suffering from the effects of alcoholism show up at one of my Al-Anon meetings. Dear Reader: Thank you for the kind remarks. As I am sure you know, alcoholism is a serious problem. An addiction to alcohol, certain behaviors, smoking, narcotics, illicit drugs, even gambling can have devastating consequences, not only to the user but also to the user’s family and friends. I don’t believe that the public is uneducated about alcoholism, simply undereducated. You are correct that there is a certain level of shame that goes along with addiction, and this shame often leads those who care to go to extreme lengths to cope with and even hide the problem, which only serves to complicate and worsen the situation. There is no shame in having an addiction. It truly is a disease; however, it’s one that cannot be cured with pills and exercise. Treatment requires will power and a desire to get

better. It requires changing habits and behaviors, examination of feelings and emotions, and a great deal of hard work. The families of addicts must realize that no matter what they say or do, nothing will change until the addict is ready to make that choice.
