D.C. lobbying successful, officials say

TOO MANY CATS, DOGS

By Manivanh Chanprasith mchan@vicksburgpost.com Returning from a nearly weeklong lobbying trip to Washington, D.C., local officials said Thursday they were cautiously optimistic about getting money for area projects. “While we had a number of different meetings, some of them were more positive than others,” Mayor Paul Winfield said during Thursday’s meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen. “It was a productive trip. I’m cautiously optimistic,” he said. “We have to get vigilant and very innovative now to get funding.” Winfield said the 14-member delegation was greeted warmly and given good direction in the offices of Mississippi’s senior senator, Thad Cochran, and Rep. Bennie Thompson, who represents the 2nd Congressional District, of which Vicksburg is a part. The group was seeking $4 million in federal funds to pay for the ongoing Washington Street bridge replacement project that currently is being funded with money taken from a planned road-paving project and the development of the Fisher Ferry sports complex. Officials said they were given directions for applying for alternative funding because of a federal moratorium on earmarks, congressional money given specifically to public projects. “Because they don’t have earmarks at this particular moment, the money is

James Williams feeds his cats at his house on Watkins Road.

‘Little Fix Rig’ to spay, neuter for low-income By Pamela Hitchins phitchins@vicksburgpost.com

To participate “Beat the Heat” low-cost spay and neutering for dogs and cats, a joint effort of the Vicksburg-Warren Humane Society, Paws Rescue and MS-SPAN, will be offered Saturday and Feb. 19 and 26 and March 5 as the Little Fix Rig comes to the Humane Society, 6600 U.S. 61 South. By appointment only. Call 601-636-6631 or 601-529-4674 for more information.

Feeding the neighbor’s cats can get out of control, something a Watkins Road man has learned the hard way. James Williams, 75, who has a soft spot for wide-eyed fluffy animals, has no regrets, however. Williams began giving food to three cats a neighbor left behind when she moved a number of years ago. The cats had not been spayed or neutered and began having litters

of kittens. Now Williams has between 60 and 120 cats on his property. They bask in the sunlit windows of old vehicles around the property, scamper under-

neath the home when strangers approach and come running when Williams steps from his back door with bowls of kitty See Animals, Page A8.

City man accused of $12,000 false pretense crime & accident

A Vicksburg man was released from the Warren County Jail this morning after being held on a felony false pretense charge. Christopher Montpelier, 40, 4680 Lee Road, was arrested on a warrant by Warren County deputies at 8:30 p.m. Thursday at his home, Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said. Montpelier is accused of using a credit card number he obtained through the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, where he was a roofing contractor, for unauthorized purchases of more than $12,000, Pace said. He was released on a $25,000 bond.

Pace said more charges against Noble could come.

Military park plans burns on South Loop The Vicksburg National Military Park will conduct controlled burns inside the park, south of Clay Street, between Monday and Feb. 25. The locations set for burns are Fort Garrott and Railroad Redoubt on the park’s South Loop. They will be conducted in a one- to two-day period. The burns help in the overall maintenance of park landscape, reducing the accumulation of hazardous fuels, controlling the spread of invasive plant species and providing a more historically accurate view of the park.

Four killed in early-morning trailer fire in north Mississippi CRENSHAW (AP) — Four people were killed today in a mobile home fire south of Crenshaw, on Mississippi 3 on the Panola-Quitman county line. Panola County Coroner Gracie Grant-Gulledge said

the four, two women and two men, were pronounced dead at the scene. She said the bodies were found in a back bedroom. Eight others were hurt, Grant-Gulledge said, but none of the injuries were thought

to be life threatening. One was taken to Regional Medical Center in Memphis, Tenn., and the others were taken to Tri-Lakes Hospital in Batesville. Their conditions were unavailable. Gulledge said this morning

authorities were not releasing names of the victims. Sheriff Otis Griffin said the fire broke out just after 4 a.m. in the single-wide trailer. Griffin says a motorist noticed smoke coming from the structure and stopped and blew his

horn. “He managed to wake some of them and got them out,” the sheriff said, adding that same man also made the 911 call. Griffin said authorities were investigating what caused the blaze.

Walthall supervisor Senate paves way for Jackson tax vote struck, killed by truck Mississippi Legislature

JACKSON (AP) — The Mississippi Senate passed a bill Thursday that would extend a possible 1-cent local sales tax for the city of Jackson until 2032. Sen. John Horhn, D-Jackson, said the bill refines a 2009 law that first granted the city the authority to hold an election on the tax increase. The city has yet to hold the referendum. The 2009 law specified the money could be spent on water and sewer lines, road maintenance or law enforcement. The bill approved Thursday would direct all the money to infrastructure. The bill removes a 2014 expiration date for the law. City officials said they expect the penny tax could raise $15 million to $20 million annually. Horhn said the tax wouldn’t be applied to restaurants, groceries or telecommunications. The bill, which passed 38-9, now heads to the House. House Ways and Means Chairman Percy Watson, D-Hattiesburg, said he supports the bill, which must pass his committee. Sen. Hob Bryan, D-Amory, spoke against the bill, saying it opens the door for a local option sales tax for every city in the state. “This is the most far-reaching piece of legislation you will consider at this legislature. This is the local option sales tax back again. Back wearing a different outfit,” Bryan said. “You’re not going to say ‘no’ to Ridgeland after you say ’yes’ to Jackson.” The Mississippi Municipal League has fully pushed a proposal to led voters decide whether to raise taxes to pay for projects.

Senators: Insurance required for car tag The Mississippi Senate passed a bill Thursday that requires each motorist to show proof of liability insurance before receiving a car tag. Sen. Billy Hewes, R-Gulfport, said his constituents have complained about being involved in crashes with drivers who aren’t insured. The bill wouldn’t require any extra paperwork for tax collectors, Hewes said. All they’ll have to do is ask to see an individual’s proof of insurance before granting the car tag. Sen. Cindy Hyde Smith, R-Brookhaven, who voted against the bill, said her constituents are concerned

A look at the status of selected bills:

Alive • Immigration enforcement — Senate bill would allow a check of immigration status if the officer thinks the person might be illegal. • Payday lending — House bill would give consumers longer to pay off loans from check cashing businesses and reduce finance charges. • Charter schools — Senate bill is designed to strengthen the current charter school law by allowing organizations to run openenrollment charter schools anywhere in the state after receiving approval. Current law allows charter schools in low-performing districts. • Animal cruelty — Senate bill says a person could be charged with aggravated cruelty for torturing, mutilating, maiming, burning, starving, disfiguring or killing a domesticated dog or cat. A second Senate bill would allow a felony on a second offense in five years. • Fake bath salts — Senate bill would outlaw fake bath salts and other products used to get high. • Open meetings — House bill says public officials would have to pay fines out of their own pockets if they improperly close meetings. Under current law, taxpayers pay the fine. The bill also says anyone who denies someone access to public about the extra duty slowing the process at tax collectors’ offices.

The bill moves to the House, where similar proposals have died.

Another House bill would require teen recipients of Temporary Assistance to Needy Families and Medicaid to participate in programs about birth control, abstinence and parenting. • Attorneys’ contracts — Senate bill would change procedures for the attorney general to hire private attorneys to file lawsuits on behalf of the state. • Underage drinking — House bill would set penalties for people who host parties where minors consume alcohol. • Mental health — House bill attempts to correct disparities among services in community centers. • Teacher conduct — House bill would provide reasons for suspending or revoking the license of a teacher or administrator for sexual misconduct with a student. • ’Bastard’ — House and Senate bills would remove the words “bastard” and “bastardy” from state laws

Wingfield has an enrollment of about 1,000 students, and is rated “at risk of failing” by the Mississippi Department of Education. It has the lowest graduation rate and the highest dropout rate in Jackson, reports say.

TYLERTOWN —A longtime Walthall County supervisor died Thursday after being hit by a truck while he was trying to clear a tree from a county bridge. Coroner Shannon Hartzog said 83-year-old Travis Alford was hit about 6 a.m. when the driver of a truck tried to dodge the tree and apparently didn’t see Alford on Sartinville Road. No charges have been filed or are expected, said Walthall County Sheriff Duane Dillon. The people in the truck stopped to help after realizing someone had been hit. Alford had been a county supervisor more than 43 years.

Currently, a license is required to shampoo hair. • State plane — House bill says anyone using a state plane for personal business would have to pay 10 times the cost of operation. • Insurance database — Senate bill would allow the state Department of Public Safety to study how to implement a database of insured drivers. A House bill would create a database state troopers could use to verify insurance.

Dead • Private cemeteries — Senate bill would’ve required landowners and leasees of private land with cemeteries or burial sites to give access for cemetery visits. • Civil rights museum — House bill would’ve authorized development. • Candy cigarettes — House bill would’ve banned the sale of candy or other food that look like tobacco. • Minors’ smoking — House bill would’ve set penalties for possession of tobacco. • Funeral contracts — House bill would’ve revised prepaid rules.

JACKSON — Virginia College is being sued by 14 people who say they participated in a pilot program at the college’s Jackson campus to become licensed practical nurses — only to find out the program was never accredited by the state. The nursing students are seeking $14 million in damages in Hinds County Circuit Court. The lawsuit says the pilot program was granted preliminary accreditation in 2009, and that allowed students to be admitted. The lawsuit says the school learned while the program was under way that it had not been accredited, but didn’t tell the students.

Mistrial for doctor on drug charges PASCAGOULA — A mistrial was declared Thursday in the case against retired Pascagoula heart surgeon Dr. David Bruce. Circuit Judge Robert Krebs declared the mistrial after jurors said they were deadlocked. Jurors deliberated more than two hours Thursday before sending word to the judge they could not reach a decision. Allen was charged with manufacturing marijuana and transfer of the controlled substance hashish. The defense rested Thursday morning, hours after the judge dropped four other charges against Allen. Krebs ruled there was insufficient evidence to try Allen on charges of bribing a witness, witness tampering, perjury and possession of marijuana.

The school board voted 4-1 at its Jan. 20 meeting not to renew Morris’ contract. The contract expires June 30 of this year. Morris is in his eighth year as superintendent in Natchez. Before taking the job, Morris was director of personnel at South Panola High School. He was principal of Natchez High from 1994 to 1997.

Odyssey not over for industry The number of illnesses associated with eating raw Gulf oysters has declined significantly in recent years — though not enough to persuade government to clam up about tougher regulations on the industry. Warm waters breed increased amounts of Vibrio vulnificus, a bacterium found in raw oysters that is destroyed when they are cooked. Vibrio can cause death when raw oysters are eaten by people with health problems. In 2001, the Food and Drug Administration and the seafood industry set a goal of reducing illnesses derived from raw oyster consumption by 60 percent by the end of the decade. New rules restricting the dates, times and temperatures oysters can be harvested were implemented. Data from Florida, Texas, Louisiana and California show that Vibrio illnesses declined by 36.3 percent in 2009 and by 41.4 percent in 2010. That’s good news. But it’s not good enough to satisfy regulators. In 2009, the FDA backed off a proposal to prohibit the sale of raw oysters during the summer

months, when the waters are warmest and the risk of Vibrio is the greatest. It also shelved a plan to require all oysters to receive a post-harvesting treatment — pasteurization, freezing or irradiation — that is designed to kill the bacteria. However, last spring the FDA imposed rules that required harvesters from May through July to deliver their catch to a certified dealer by 11:30 a.m.; from August through October, the deadline was noon. Harvesters also had the option of putting cooling systems on their boats, which could keep them on the water up until 4 p.m. But because that method was too costly for most oysterers, they were given the option of taking their catch directly to an oyster house that could cool oysters to 55 degrees within two hours. That enabled harvesters to stay on the water until 2 p.m. These regulations had more times and temps than a digital bank sign. But they still weren’t enough for officials. State aquaculture regulators now want to extend the 2010 rules into April and November.

40 YEARS AGO: 1971

If that doesn’t hit the magic 60 percent mark, then expect renewed calls to prohibit oyster harvesting during the warmest months, or worse, to require postharvesting processing. The Centers for Disease Control tracked 900 Vibrio infections from the Gulf states between 1988 and 2006. That’s an average of 50 a year, with about 15 fatalities. And that’s out of how many millions of people who consumed oysters? Vibrio is a serious risk to people with diabetes, liver conditions and other ailments that diminish their body’s immune systems. More people die from eating raw eggs or raw meats than from oysters. Life is full of risks. Consuming raw food is one of them. People should know the potential pitfalls, especially if they are in a high-risk group. That’s why restaurant menus warn diners of the dangers of eating uncooked shellfish. Current oyster regulations are working. Going any further will likely create economic hardship that is not commensurate with the nominal benefits.

Egypt unrest shows depth of America’s declining global influence WASHINGTON — For those who are prone to be prone to such things, recent events in Egypt were further evidence of declining American global influence. The protesters, one article complained, didn’t even bother to burn our flag. We are seeing, according to some observers, a “post-American Middle East.” Another explained that the “age of Western hegemony is fading away.” Nevermind that the protesters were using Western technology to demand individual rights. Or that many of the young, secular bloggers who laid the groundwork for the revolution alternated between Arabic and English and had visited or studied in America. Lay aside the fact that Egyptians marching in the streets focused their demands on only two actors, the Egyptian government and the American government — not the United Nations or the Arab League or China. In fact, China’s response was to remove the word “Egypt” from its Internet search engines and lay low until the storm passed. Such considerations should not be allowed to detract from our sense of impotence — a paradoxical tribute to our ambitions. People in Holland

or Costa Rica do not celebrate or decry their lack of sway in Egyptian politics. Only Americans feel vindication or guilt at the limits of their power. Those limits are obvious along the Nile. The outcome of the current struggle matters greatly to American interests. The emergence of a Sunni version of Iran in Egypt would be a major blow. A democratic transition, even a messy and partial one, might eventually isolate or domesticate the extremists and defuse hatred for America. But the course of events in Egypt is determined by an internal balance of nationalism and religion, fear and hope, that America can only influence on the margins. That is frustrating, but hardly new.

And the limits of a certain American policy approach in the Middle East have never been more obvious. Decades of aiding a military dictator, who presides over a corrupt, unresponsive government, who has managed his economy into stagnation and scarcity, and who has driven most legitimate opposition toward the radical mosque, have not produced stability. There’s a reason shahs are sometimes followed by mullahs — because religious extremism is the opiate of a humiliated people. Who can seriously argue that the denouement in Egypt will be better after another year of repression, or another decade? But it is a tricky thing to extrapolate these limits into a theory of

American decline. Decline compared to what? Compared to the heady, unipolar moment immediately following the collapse of the Soviet Union? Or compared to coldest days of the Cold War, when the Soviet Union sent military aid and advisers to Syria, Egypt, Libya and Iraq, attempting to block American actions at every turn? The scholar Joseph Nye describes a layer cake of American influence. On the first level, military power, America remains unchallenged. On the second, economic influence, the world has been multipolar for a while now. On a third level — a transnational realm of bankers and terrorists, Facebook and hackers — power is diffused to a wide range of actors, both good and bad, who now have the ability to sponsor Sept. 11, 2001, or Jan. 25, 2011. In the complex determination of national influence, those with the best story, the most compelling narrative, have an advantage. In the Middle East, does military dictatorship on the Baathist or Mubarak models seem the wave of the future? Does Iranian theocracy, which in reaction to democratic protests has collapsed into military control, seem worthy of emulation?

These systems may be imposed at the barrel of a gun. But on the streets of Cairo, self-government is the hope. It seems the system most likely to result in progress, social vitality and national achievement. And it seems that way because it is. At least since Franklin Roosevelt, American leaders have viewed the appeal of democratic ideals as a source of national power. America now has less direct control, say, in Germany and Japan than it did in the 1950s. But both are monuments to American influence. Democracies do not always do our bidding, but in the long run they are both more stable and peaceful than countries ruled by the whims of a single man. Democratic transitions are difficult and uncertain, especially in places with shallow democratic roots. But it is strangely disconnected from American history and ideals to regard a popular revolt against an oppressive ruler as a sign of American decline.

smart money Q: Which is a better way to start investing for my children: opening a Roth IRA or purchasing stock? My husband and I would like to provide for their future and hopefully not have BRUCE them struggle like we did. I have heard so many good things about a Roth IRA that I think that would get a better return. We have been paying down our debt and as we get it down we would like to use some of the money we now have to start for our children. — P.R. in Iowa A: Stocks and mutual funds

— which are comprised of stocks — are investment vehicles. Roth IRA is the name of the legislation that allows you to take advantage of some very lenient tax laws. When opening a Roth IRA, you still have to make a decision as to where and how the money is to be invested. The difference in the money that you use to invest in a Roth IRA is aftertax money, money you have already paid taxes on. While it may not be exciting reading you should start to educate yourself in the fundamental areas of investing. There are so many financial publications, financial TV shows and just reading your newspaper that can help you get a grasp on how to get started. •

Experts stunned by surge in air traffic control errors WASHINGTON (AP) — In a time of unparalleled aviation safety in the United States, reports of mistakes by air traffic controllers have nearly doubled — a contradiction that has safety experts puzzled. The latest — a near midair collision of an American Airlines jet with 259 people aboard and two Air Force transport planes southeast of New York City — has raised eyebrows in Congress and led to questions about a nonpunitive culture of error reporting. A US Airways plane carrying 95 people crossed paths with a small cargo plane in September, coming within 50

to 100 feet of each other while taking off from Minneapolis. A few months e a r l i e r, a US Airways Airbus 319 Evan intersected Seeley the path of another cargo plane during an aborted landing in Anchorage, Alaska. In fact, an air traffic controller at the Ronkonkoma, N.Y., radar facility that handled the American plane says he complained about a lax atmosphere at the facility — the second busiest of its kind in

the nation. Controller Evan Seeley, 26, said he ran afoul of the local union when he tried to prevent sick leave and scheduling abuses aimed at increasing overtime pay. Even more disturbing were Seeley’s charges that controllers sometimes watch movies and play with electronic devices during nighttime shifts. He said he has sent his complaints to the Transportation Department’s inspector general and to the Office of Special Counsel, which investigates whistleblower charges. He claims his recent demotion from his position as a manager was related to the complaints.

GM, Chrysler workers get bonuses DETROIT — Most of the 26,000 white-collar workers at General Motors will get performance bonuses of 4 to 16 percent of their base salaries this year, but payments to a small number could be 50 percent or more, the company said Thursday. Chrysler Group LLC also will give bonuses to whitecollar workers, with payments expected today. Both companies needed government bailouts in 2008 and 2009 to stay in business and make it through bankruptcy protection. GM said in a statement that the bonuses would be based on each employee’s performance as well as the company’s. The statement did not say how much on average each worker would get. Chrysler spokesman Gualberto Ranieri would not comment on the matter.

Suit aims to block Hancock-Whitney deal NEW ORLEANS — A company that holds stock in Whitney Holding Corp. is suing to block the bank’s acquisition by Hancock Holding Co. A class-action lawsuit filed by Realistic Partners accuses Whitney’s directors of acting in their own interests at the expense of shareholders and of preventing investors from making an informed decision about the proposed $1.5 billion deal. The boards for the parent companies of Hancock Bank and Whitney National Bank approved the stock-for-stock transaction in December. A Hancock spokesman and Whitney spokeswoman wouldn’t comment on the suit. The agreement between Gulfport, Miss.-based Hancock Holding and New Orleans-based Whitney Holding awaits regulatory approval.

Nokia, Microsoft join smart phone forces HELSINKI — Technology titans Nokia and Microsoft are combining forces to create smart phones that might challenge rivals like Apple and Google and revive their own fortunes in a market they have struggled to keep up with. Nokia Corp., the world’s largest maker of mobile phones, said today it plans to use Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Phone software as the main platform for its smart phones in an effort to pull market share away from Apple’s iPhone and Android, Google’s software for phones and tablets. Analysts said the deal was a bigger win for Microsoft than Nokia, whose CEO Stephen Elop in a leaked memo this week compared his company to a burning oil platform with “more than one explosion ... fueling a blazing fire around us.” Nokia’s share price plunged more than 8 percent to $10.15 after the announcement.

Egypt unrest puts oil near $87 Oil prices rose to around $87 a barrel today as Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak clung to power amid growing protests calling for his resignation. Benchmark crude for March delivery was up 25 cents at $86.98 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract rose 2 cents to settle at $86.73 on Thursday. In London, Brent crude gained 61 cents to $101.48 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange. Mubarak, in power for 30 years, said late Thursday that he would pass some

authority to his vice president but would not immediately leave office. Protesters seeking to oust Mubarak were massing in Cairo’s central square today, posing a major test for the military.

Food safety law covers informants MINNEAPOLIS — Food industry workers who become whistleblowers gained protection against retaliation from their employers with a littlenoticed provision in the sweeping food safety law President Barack Obama signed last month. The Food Safety and Modernization Act is best known for sections that aim to prevent foodborne illnesses, allow the Food and Drug Administration to order recalls and make it easier to trace contaminated food to its source. But the law also protects workers at food companies regulated by the FDA from being fired, demoted or denied promotions or raises if they speak up about what they think are violations.

Options proposed in housing crisis draft WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is poised to release long-awaited proposals for reducing government support of the mortgage market, but Congress will choose the path for reforming financially teetering housing finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The Treasury Department was to release a report today that lays out three choices for winding down Fannie and Freddie and moving to a more privatized mortgage market, say people familiar with the administration’s approach. The report will not endorse any of the options — a decision by the administration designed to provoke a discussion about the role of government in housing finance without roiling the housing market or locking President Barack Obama to a particular solution. The report’s scenarios are: • No government role, except for existing agencies like the Federal Housing Administration. • A government role that explicitly guarantees mortgages only when the market is in trouble. • A government role at all times, though not through government supported entities like Fannie and Freddie. “Under any of the scenarios there’s going to need to be more private capital in the housing system,” said Michael Barr, who recently left his post as assistant treasury secretary to return to teaching at Michigan University Law School. “That’s going to mean more pressure on interest rates.” The greater the government involvement, the milder the impact on borrowing costs. But more government involvement also places more taxpayer money at risk.

‘You’re hired?’ Trump mulls 2012 presidential run WASHINGTON (AP) — Just how wide open is the Republican presidential field? Vast enough that Donald Trump might want you to hire him. The billionaire real estate mogul and host of television’s “The Apprentice” got a raucous reception Thursday when he dangled a potential candidacy before thousands of conservatives who descended on the nation’s capital eager to

help a GOP challenger deny President Barack Obama a second term. “The United States is becoming the laughingstock of the world,” Trump said, sounding every bit a candidate as he offered his rationale for a possible bid. In a speech sprinkled with quips and jabs, he said he would decide by June whether to run. “The Donald” was among

almost a dozen potential presidential candidates, in various stages of considering a 2012 run, auditioning before 11,000 conservatives at the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference. Some are more serious about it than others. The annual gathering marked the unofficial start of the GOP presidential nomination fight. Not a single Republican has announced his or her

candidacy and each day seems to bring a new player into the mix. There is no clear frontrunner to take on the Democratic incumbent. Would-be contenders were using the event to test messages, introduce themselves and gauge support. “This is about making Barack Obama a one-term president,” said Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, a tea

party favorite who’s flirting with a bid. Opening the conference as the keynote speaker, she said, “We’re all about winning in 2012.” She didn’t say whether she planned to enter the race. On tap for today: Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney,

who ended his presidential campaign in 2008 at this meeting. Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour is to speak Saturday. Several potential candidates were absent: Sarah Palin, the 2008 vice presidential GOP nominee, and Mike Huckabee, who won the Iowa caucuses in 2008, are favorites among conservatives who declined invitations, citing conflicts.

An officer runs with a hostage after Thursday’s standoff.

One killed in standoff at N.C. bank

19-year-old had held up Wachovia branch in quiet Raleigh suburb CARY, N.C. (AP) — A hostage hiding in a North Carolina bank secretly helped police during a standoff with a teenager who was shot dead after slowly emerging from the building holding a gun to the head of one of his captives, authorities said. The gruesome final scene after three tense hours in the quiet suburban town played out live on television Thursday during the dinner hour. None of the hostages nor any of the officers involved were injured, authorities said. “This is absolutely not how we wanted this to end,” Cary Police Chief Pat Bazemore said. “It is a very sad situation that we did end up shooting the suspect.”

The standoff began around 3 p.m. when the man attempted to rob a Wachovia bank in Cary, a booming suburb west of Raleigh that prides itself on having little crime. Police arrived within two minutes and found the man had taken hostages. Authorities said 19-year-old Devon Mitchell of Cary held as many as seven people in the bank and officers were able to negotiate the release of four of them. Two women were released shortly after police arrived, and two more people were released an hour later. During one of the releases, overhead television footage showed one of the hostages running from the building quickly while the second fell to

the ground outside the bank’s door and didn’t move. Officers rushed to her side, helped her up and ran backward while keeping their guns aimed at the building’s door. Three people remained inside, but Bazemore said Mitchell wasn’t aware of one of them. She said that hostage was relaying information to authorities outside. As darkness fell, Mitchell slowly walked out of the bank with the woman hostage. Officers swarmed and the suspect fell to the ground amid a cluster of gunshots and smoke. The hostage fell to her knees, apparently unharmed. Cary is consistently ranked as both one of the nation’s safest places to live.

‘Grandad Bandit’ says guilty to bank heists RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The graying, balding man dubbed the “Granddad Bandit” pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to robbing two Virginia banks and acknowledged two dozen other heists from New York to Mississippi to Texas. Michael Francis Mara, 53, quietly answered “Yes, ma’am” or “No ma’am” but made no statement during a plea hearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Hannah Lauck in Richmond. Mara will not be charged in the other robberies. Authorities say Mara took more than $83,000 in the heists, starting in Richmond in 2008 and ending with a North Carolina holdup the day before his Aug. 11 arrest. He was captured after a six-hour standoff with police at his Baton Rouge, La., home. Along the way, authorities said, he stopped in Mississippi, taking on Feb. 27, 2009, $2,600 from a Liberty Bank and Trust in Jackson and on Jan. 20, 2010, $3440 from a Regions Bank, also in Jackson.

Mara faced up to 20 years for each charge, but his plea deal with prosecutors calls for him to spend 25 years in Michael Francis prison. He is Mara scheduled to be sentenced May 11. U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride said that while Mara has not given investigators any motive for the robberies, he was not “hard off” and was employed with a vehicle transportation company. Mara’s federal public defender, Elizabeth Wilson, declined comment following the half-hour hearing. The FBI dubbed Mara the “Granddad Bandit” to help law enforcement and the public identify the man. The agency plastered bank surveillance photos of Mara on billboards around the country in August. He was arrested a week later after authorities received a tip from someone who saw the billboard.

‘Run Geezer Run!’: Fans track robber on Internet LOS ANGELES (AP) — Entrepreneurs are printing surveillance shots of his wrinkled face on T-shirts, thousands of people “Like” him on Facebook and many are wishing him continued success at evading the law. To his legion of fans, the “Geezer Bandit” is a bank-robbing old man with a quirky nickname whose popularity only seems to grow with each heist. But authorities trying to track him down say there is nothing light hearted about the doddering robber. They say he is an armed

and dangerous menace who leaves bank tellers terrified and could strike at any time. He might even be someone younger disguised under a lifelike special-effects mask. In a region the FBI has dubbed the bank robbery capital of the world, where stickups still occur on an almost daily basis, the “Geezer Bandit” case has captured the public’s interest like few others in recent memory. The aging robber is showing no signs of retiring. On Jan. 28, authorities say the blazerclad geezer struck at a Bank of America branch in Goleta.

Mara never used a disguise. He waited patiently in line and handed the teller a note demanding a specific amount of money. Once he suggested he had a weapon, but authorities said there was no indication he ever used one. Mara typically reaped only a few thousand dollars at each bank, officials say.

City Continued from Page A1. going to come in some different way,” said Christi Kilroy, Vicksburg-Warren County Chamber of Commerce executive director, who also made the trip. “The trip went well,” Economic Development Foundation Executive Director Wayne Mansfield said this morning. “Our priority project was the Washington Street bridge, and I think Senator Cochran and Congressman Thompson agreed it’s a priority, and we hope to get assistance from them.” He said the delegation’s next step is to continue communication with the Washington delegation, though no meetings have been scheduled. Cory Horton, senior legislative assistant in Thompson’s office, said funds likely will come through grants. “The meeting was very good,” Horton said. “The congressman is committed to doing everything he can to help.” Thompson suggested applying for money through the Mississippi Department of Transportation, Mississippi Emergency Management Agency and Community Development Block Grants. A statement from Cochran’s

office said the senator is offering support. “With the focus in Washington on fiscal austerity, we had a frank discussion about the city’s needs and how the absence of congressionally directed spending for at least the next year could affect their plans,” the statement said. “They are aware that, with or without the availability of earmarked funding, I am ready to work with them to try to secure federal assistance for the city.” Winfield said the group also met with Sen. Roger Wicker, who offered little encouragement that federal funding would be received. The Washington Street bridge over the Kansas City Southern Railway, the main thoroughfare connecting Interstate 20 to downtown Vicksburg, has been closed to vehicles since January 2009. In June 2010, Kanzaa Construction of Tokepa, Kan., began construction on a roadway-topped rail tunnel for $8.6 million. The project is expected to be complete by May. Funding also was sought for infrastructure upgrades at the Port of Vicksburg, a bridge for South Frontage Road to extend over KCS

tracks to connect from Old Highway 27 to the section in front of the Outlets at Vicksburg, a county sanitary sewer system, maintenance dredging of the lower Mississippi River, restoration of the port’s intermodal connector fund, the design of a road to connect U.S. 61 North to Haining Road and the remodeling of the Interstate 20 interchange at Flowers. The delegates had also voiced support for the Champion Hill, Port Gibson and Raymond Battlefield Addition Act, which would increase the size and scope of the Vicksburg National Military Park by 10,000 acres through voluntary sale, donation or exchange. The three areas were part of the Campaign for Vicksburg during the Civil War. Also traveling on the lobbying trip were representatives from the county, the Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau, Main Street and the Southern Cultural Heritage Center. The group left last weekend and met with the congressional delegation during the first three business days of the week.

On the agenda Meeting Thursday, the Board of Mayor and Aldermen: • Addressed the city’s policy of donating the use of public facilities. Mayor Paul Winfield said while the board approves the use of a public facility, the organization or individual renting is responsible for the cost of insurance, security and cleanup. • Heard from Executive Director Annette Kirklin about upcoming events at the Southern Cultural Heritage Center. • Received sealed bids for fuel access card from Fuel Man and The Pantry, which operates the Kangaroo gas stations. The board voted to take the bids under advisement until the board meeting. • OK’d a Vicksburg Police Department policy stating the number of hours served during suspension issued would be eight instead of the usual 12- hour shift. • Accepted a $40,000 Assistance to Firefighters Grant program award from Federal Emergency Management Agency. The grant requires a 10 percent local match. City grant writer Marcia Weaver said the grant will go to purchase four new powered stretchers for ambulances at the Vicksburg Fire Department. • Authorized the preparation and submittal of an application to receive recycling bins from the Mississippi Recycling Bin Grant Program under the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality. • Authorized the preparation and submittal of

an application for the April 2011 Affordable Housing Program funded through the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas. • OK’d Victor Gray-Lewis, director of Buildings and Inspections, to proceed to cut, clean and demolish a property at 150 Openwood Lane. • Rescinded a motion from the Feb. 7 board meeting to enter into a contract for services with Arielle Buchman for the 2011 Tennis in the Park spring break minicamp. Buchman had a schedule conflict. • OK’d a contract for services with Kalinina Sandoval for the 2011 Tennis in the Park minicamp. • Re-appointed Joe Graham to the Civil Service Commission. • Declared Feb. 21, which is President’s Day, as a city holiday. • OK’d a request for $225 for radio sponsorship from WRTM-FM radio station for Black History Month. • OK’d adding Robert Taylor and Dennis Barnett, both of the street department, to the employee driving list. • OK’d allocation of $17,000 to Four Seasons of the Arts. • OK’d claims docket. • Discussed gas rates, housing and contractors with Willie Robinson, a private citizen. In closed session, the board: • Discussed 16 personnel matters in recreation, fire, engineering and sewer departments. The board meets next at 10 a.m. Feb. 22 in City Hall Annex room 109.

chow. “I hate anything to come around me and I can’t feed them, so I started feeding them,” said Williams, 75. “When they look at you so pitiful, you just have to feed them.” Vicksburg-Warren Humane Society director Georgia Lynn said Williams has taken good care of the felines but needs help. “Its a healthy colony,” she said, “but it’s an example of what not to do. Don’t let it get that far out of control before you contact somebody.” Williams is about to get the help he needs, and Lynn hopes others will, too. Over the next four Saturdays, the Humane Society will partner with Paws Rescue and MS-SPAN — Mississippi Spay and Neuter, a Pearl organization — to provide affordable neutering procedures for local cats and dogs on the “Little Fix Rig,” which will be parked at the U.S. 61 South facility. “If we can spay 100 dogs that might otherwise have six puppies, that’s cutting 600 unwanted animals in a year,” Lynn said. “We want the people who can’t afford it to be able to get their pets neutered. A lot of people are having hard times but still want to keep their pets.” Dubbed “Beat the Heat,” the initiative is built around Spay Day USA, formally recognized on Feb. 22. “The goal of this program is to increase awareness of the need for and the benefits of spaying or neutering

into widespread discontent with Mubarak’s authoritarian lock on power, corruption, economic woes and widespread disparities between rich and poor. “In these grave circumstances that the country is passing through, President Hosni Mubarak has decided to leave his position as president of the republic,” a grimlooking Suleiman said. “He has mandated the Armed Forces Supreme Council to run the state. God is our protector and succor.” Nobel Peace laureate Mohammed ElBaradei, whose young suporters were among the organizers of the protest movement, told The Associated Press, “This is the greatest day of my life.” “The country has been liberated after decades of repression,” he said adding that he expects a “beautiful” transition of power. Outside Mubarak’s Oruba Palace in northern Cairo, women on balconies ululated with the joyous tongue-trilling used to mark weddings and births. “Finally we are free,” said Safwan Abo Stat, a 60-yearold in the crowd of protesters at the palace. “From now on anyone who is going to rule will know that these people are great.” Another, Mohammed elMasry, weeping with joy, said he had spent the past

The cost is $25 for male cats, $35 for female cats, $55 for male dogs under 40 pounds and $65 for female dogs under 40 pounds. The prices average about $50 less per operation than would be charged by an animal hospital. Also, rabies vaccinations will be given for $8. Paws Rescue’s “trap-neuterreturn” program will be used on Williams’ cats, which are for the most part wild. The brood goes through about 16 pounds of cat food in two days, said Williams, a

retired inspector from Grand Gulf Nuclear Power Station who also worked as a welder at LeTourneau Industries. He said he spends about half his income providing for them. “It’s too many to be feeding,” he said with a laugh. A similar clinic featuring retired Vicksburg police Sgt. Doug Arp at MS-SPAN’s Pearl facility begins Friday for Jackson-area residents. Arp, known for attentiongetting stunts in support of crime prevention, will spend 24 hours in a cooler.

two weeks in Tahrir before marching to the palace today. He was now headed back to the square to join his ecstatic colleagues. “We made it,” he gasped. The question now turned to how the military, Egypt’s most powerful institution, will handle the transition in power. Earlier in the day, the Armed Forces Supreme Council — a body of top generals — vowed to guide the country to greater democracy. In a statement hours before Suleiman’s announcement, it said it was committed “to sponsor the legitimate demands of the people and endeavor for their implementation within a defined timetable ... until achieving a peaceful transition all through a democratic society aspired by the people.” Abdel-Rahman Samir, one of the youth organizers of the protests, said the protest movement would now open negotiations with the military over democratic reform but vowed protests would continue to ensure change is carried out. “We still don’t have any guarantees yet — if we end the whole situation now the it’s like we haven’t done anything,” he said. “So we need to keep sitting in Tahrir until we get all our demands.” But, he added, “I feel fantastic.”

E-cigarettes to be banned from U.S. airlines RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The U.S. Department of Transportation says the use of smokeless electronic cigarettes on airplanes is prohibited and plans to issue an official ban this spring, according to a letter from Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood obtained by The Associated Press. In the letter to Sen. Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey, LaHood said the department has been informing airlines and the public that it interprets smoking regulations to include e-cigarettes. Lautenberg, who wrote the 1987 law that banned smoking on airplanes, had asked transportation officials to clarify the rule. E-cigarettes are plastic and metal devices that heat a

liquid nicotine solution in a disposable cartridge, creating vapor that the “smoker” inhales. A tiny light on the tip glows like a real cigarette. They have prompted debate over how risky they are and whether they’re legal. Numerous videos on YouTube show passengers using the devices on airplanes. Lautenberg even said some passengers have interpreted flight attendant instructions to mean that the devices were only prohibited when other electronic devices were not allowed during takeoff and landing. Many airlines already have begun informing passengers that the devices are not allowed on flights, but Lautenberg said there had been confusion over their use and

wanted to make sure officials were solidly opposed to opening the door to e-smoking on planes. Some e-cigarette distributors have touted their convenience because they can be “smoked” anywhere traditional cigarettes are not allowed. “We still don’t know the health effects of e-cigarettes, and we don’t want to turn airline passengers into laboratory mice,” Lautenberg said in an e-mailed statement. Jason Healy, president of e-cigarette maker Blu Cigs, called the move somewhat disappointing, but said it isn’t the end of the world. Healy said he hopes that once more people understand e-cigarettes and more testing is done, that airlines could choose whether to allow them.

“I understand from an airline’s view the hassles it could create,” said Healy, whose company has partnered with a luxury charter jet company to provide free e-cigs on private flights. “It’s not the actual product, it’s the disruption and explaining to everyone else that it’s not smoke.” Users and distributors say e-cigarettes address both the nicotine addiction and the behavioral aspects of smoking — the holding of the cigarette, the puffing, seeing the smoke come out and the hand motion — without the more than 4,000 chemicals found in cigarettes. Nearly 46 million Americans smoke cigarettes. About 40 percent try to quit each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Pre-

vention. But unlike nicotine patches or gums, e-smokes have operated in a legal gray area. First marketed overseas in 2002, e-cigarettes didn’t become easily available in the U.S. until late 2006. Now, the industry has grown from the thousands of users in 2006 to several million worldwide, with tens of thousands new e-smokers every week. The future of e-cigarettes is likely to be decided by the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA lost a court case last year after trying to treat e-cigarettes as drug-delivery devices, rather than tobacco products, because e-cigarettes heat nicotine extracted from tobacco.

Ethics watchdog group targets congressional sleepovers WASHINGTON (AP) — A Washington ethics watchdog says it’s time for Congress to crack down on lawmakers who sleep in their offices rather than pay for a place to live. Reacting to a surge in congressmen bunking down in their work spaces, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington wants the Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate whether the politicians are getting an unfair tax break and violating their own rules by making personal use of public resources. “House office buildings are

not dorms or frat houses,” Melanie Sloan, the group’s executive director, said Thursday. “If members didn’t want to find housing in Washington, they shouldn’t have run for Congress in the first place.” For years, at least a few lawmakers have slept on couches and cots in their offices to avoid long commutes or pricey Washington rents. Some see it as a badge of honor, a commitment to frugality and hard work and a reminder to constituents they don’t consider Washington home. CREW cited media reports

that more than 30 lawmakers, all men, sleep in their offices. Sloan thinks the real total could be as many as 40 or 50 after a wave of budget-conscious, anti-Washington freshmen won seats in November. Rep. Paul Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman, has slept in his office for years. Ryan, R-Wis., brushed aside questions about the complaint. “People have been doing it for decades,” he said. “I work until midnight every night. I get up at 6 every morning.” Another longtime office-

sleeper, Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., said he’ll move out if the rules change. But he said it is more convenient for him to stay in the Capitol complex. A spokesman for the Office of Congressional Ethics declined to comment except to say that the office had received CREW’s letter, which maintains that the free living arrangements amount to a taxable benefit that should be reported to the IRS. Several congressional officials said they weren’t aware of any rules or guidance specifically addressing the matter.

Sloan said that aside from the legal and rules questions, she has heard reports from congressional staffers about uncomfortable work environments. “Especially if you’re a woman and you’re working late and your boss is there getting ready for bed, that seems designed for discomfort,” she said. Besides, she added, “who wants to run into a member of Congress in need of a shower wandering the halls in sweats or a robe?”

Stadium Continued from Page A1. needs renovations, including repair or replacement of elevators and upgrades to the scoreboard and the press box. Rep. George Flaggs, D-Vicksburg, a graduate of Jackson State, voted for the transfer. Some lawmakers who support Jackson State voted against transferring the stadium to the university, fearing it could be too expensive to maintain. Others worried that the transaction could

undermine Jackson State’s ability to eventually win public and private funding and support for a new oncampus stadium. “I bleed blue and white. I went there. That’s my school. I support it. I love it,” said Rep. Earle Banks, D-Jackson. But in a state where historically black universities have often struggled for state support, Banks said he was leery of the politics that led to the deal: “To me, this does not pass the smell test.”

Contacted this morning, Flaggs disagreed: “Until we can build Jackson State its own stadium, it’s in their best interest for them to be able to operate and have total management authority of that stadium.” The University of Mississippi Medical Center, which is across the street from Veterans Memorial Stadium, uses the stadium’s parking lot. UMMC has discussed eventually trying to acquire the land to develop more

medical facilities. House Public Property Committee Chairman Mary Coleman, D-Jackson, said top officials at Jackson State, UMMC, DFA and the state Institutions of Higher Learning agreed on the plan the House passed. “We did our research and our due diligence,” Jackson State President Carolyn Meyers said in an interview outside the House chamber. “This is a good deal until we get our own stadium.”

The bill has provisions that would allow Jackson State to give the stadium back to DFA in three years if the maintenance is too expensive or there are other problems, said Rep. Cecil Brown, D-Jackson. He said he understands concerns by Banks and others. “You don’t want a red herring,” Brown said. “You don’t want a stadium around there that’s going to fall down around you.”

Swiss police: Father’s letter admits killings

Nation & world BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GENEVA (AP) — The father of the missing Swiss twins wrote a letter to his estranged wife saying he had killed them and intended to kill himself, Swiss police said today. Matthias Kaspar Schepp wrote in a Feb. 3 letter from Italy that 6-year-olds Alessia and Livia were dead and he would now kill himself, and his body was found later that day,

Charges reduced in taped bullying MEDIA, Pa. — Five of the seven suburban Philadelphia juveniles charged in videotaped bullying have admitted their roles in return for having the most serious charges against them dropped. Delaware County prosecutors also dropped all charges against the teen who taped the attack in which the 13-year-old victim was dragged through the snow, stuffed in a tree and hanged by his jacket from a 7-foot fence post. The victim agreed with prosecutors’ offer to drop felony aggravated assault and kidnapping charges in return for admissions to misdemeanors. The teens will remain in custody until a juvenile detention hearing Feb. 22. The final suspect denies wrongdoing. His trial is set for next week.

Mandela in-law won’t be extradited to U.S. JOHANNESBURG — A South African court today refused a U.S. request that the son-in-law of former South African President Nelson Mandela be sent to Connecticut to face sexual assault charges. Magistrate Tefo Myambo ruled in Isaac Amuah’s favor at an extradition hearing in Johannesburg, saying he was convinced the accuser was alleging rape to get money. Amuah, a former professor at Manchester Community Technical College, left Connecticut 12 years ago while facing the charges, which he denies.

Marine archaeologists 600 miles northwest of Honolulu have found the wreck site of Pollard’s second vesse, the Two Brothers, which went down in 1823.

Link found in separate Manassas, Va., attacks

ALLENTOWN, Pa. — The search for five victims of a massive explosion that rocked a Pennsylvania neighborhood has reached its grim conclusion, but the search for clues about what caused the disaster that leveled two houses and burned many more has only begun. Investigators and utility workers picked through the smoldering ruins of a rowhouse neighborhood Thursday, trying to determine whether an 83-year-old castiron gas main was the culprit in a thunderous explosion that killed five people. The fiery blast late Wednesday night was the latest deadly natural-gas disaster in recent months to raise questions about the safety of the nation’s aging, 2.5-million-mile network of pipes.

GENEVA — The World Health Organization says governments should do more to clamp down on alcohol abuse that is killing 2.5 million people each year.

MANASSAS, Va. — A pair of attacks just blocks apart left three people dead and three others injured in a Virginia suburb of Washington. A man described as a person of interest was being questioned in both, police said. Two people were shot and killed and two others were hurt about 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Georgetown South neighborhood of Manassas, police spokesman Sgt. Tim Neumann said. About 20 minutes later, police were called to another home about a quarter-mile away where one person had been killed and another injured with a knife.

Eagles win, advance to state tournament Ex-Bulldog By Ernest Bowker ebowker@vicksburgpost.com

End of an era Longtime Utah Jazz coach Sloan resigns Story/B3.

On TV 7 p.m. ESPN - It’s a classic NBA matchup of East vs. West tonight, as the Lakers take on the Knicks in Madison Square Garden.

FLOWOOD — After falling behind for the first time all night, the Porters Chapel Eagles were finally close enough to losing to see their season slipping away. With one last, great push they grabbed a lifeline and lived to fight another day. The Eagles outscored Sylva-Bay 9-0 in the final minute Thursday — after wasting all of an early 15-point cushion — and won 52-44 in the first round of the MAIS Class A South Central

The victory sends PCA into the second round tonight at 6 against Wayne Academy, and it also clinched a spot in next week’s Class A tournament at Benton Academy. It’s the first time PCA has reached the state tournament since

2005-06, and just the second time in 15 years. “It feels great. I hadn’t done it before,” said PCA Kawayne guard Gaston Matthew Warren, a three-year starter who scored nine points against Sylva-Bay. “It’s going to be a tough road, but I think we can do good as long as we trust each other.” The Eagles face a tough road in this tournament,

too. Because their opener was delayed a day by wintry weather, they’ll have to win three games in three days to hoist the trophy. Win or lose tonight, they’ll still play a consolation game on Saturday to determine seeding in the state tournament. “It would’ve been nice to play (Wednesday), have a night off and have time to do research. But it is what it is,” PCA coach E.J. Creel said. Kawayne Gaston finished with 20 points and 10

SEC teams stranded in North Mississippi

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Winter weather across the South kept a pair of Southeastern Conference batball teams on the road longer than planned on Thursday. Both Arkansas and LSU stayed in Mississippi following games on Wednesday. The Razorbacks made the decision to stay an extra night before their game against Mississippi State because of snow in Arkansas and Starkville. The National Weather Service reported 18 inches fell in Fayetteville, which Arkansas coach John Pelphrey said was one factor in the decision. He also said low visibility was a problem in Columbus, Miss., where the Razorbacks were scheduled to fly out of. Arkansas finally boarded a flight home around 1 p.m. Thursday. The Razorbacks are to play Saturday at home against LSU, which lost to Ole Miss on Wednesday. The Tigers also faced difficulty due to the weather in Oxford. The charter plane that was supposed to take them home following the game was stuck in Baton Rouge on Wednesday evening and could not get to northern Mississippi to pick them up. After staying overnight in Oxford, the team drove to Memphis on Thursday morning to meet the plane. The decision was then reached to fly straight to Fayetteville for Saturday’s game rather than fly home and worry about the availability of a charter today because of delays in the region.

The next challenge is Clinton’s Cortni Cooper. Clinton and Warren Central meet for the division tournament title at 6 tonight at Vicksburg High. The two teams split a pair of meetings during the regular season, with each winning on its home court. Cooper, the Lady Arrows’ senior guard who played her sophomore season at Vicksburg High, will be the big key to the championship game. She scored 26 points

Division 4-6A Tournament At Vicksburg High Girls Boys Today, 6 p.m. Today, 7:30 p.m. Clinton vs. Warren Central Greenville-Weston vs. Vicksburg in a key win over her former Missy Gator teammates on Jan. 28, and has averaged 14 per game for the season. WC coach Jackie Martin knows her team will need another big defensive effort like they had against Vicksburg. The Lady Vikes (9-15) held Mayfield, the 2010 Vicksburg Post Player of the Year and a Montevallo signee, to just six points and five rebounds in a 42-34 win on Tuesday.

“We’re going to go ahead and try what’s worked for us in the first two games and that’s to control Cooper,” Martin said. Warren Central rotated its guards against Vicksburg. Sh’Qulla Neal played most of the minutes and scored 13 points through three quarters before missing much of the fourth with cramps. “I just got too dehydrated,” Neal said. Sophomore Jazmine

Walker stepped up when Neal was out and had seven steals. Forward Michelle Jones was another contributor in the win over Vicksburg, with six points and eight rebounds. “We know against Clinton that we have to come out and play,” Jones said. “Mental mistakes cost us this last time. We’re going to have to stick to the game plan.” The Vicksburg boys go for their first division tournament title since 2005 when they take on GreenvilleWeston in a rematch of last year’s divisional final.

Gymnastics

GymSouth ready to host first major meet By Steve Wilson swilson@vicksburgpost.com When GymSouth owner Cherry Dabney-Robbins put into motion plans for the Mardi Gras Invitational, her gym’s first big meet, she expected two or three of the state’s gyms to participate. Instead, on Saturday and Sunday, all 11 of the state’s big gymnastics facilities will bring athletes to Vicksburg. While Dabney-Robbins and her GymSouth team are used to hitting the road for meets throughout the state and in the surround-

ing region, they finally get a chance to shine in front of a home crowd. “We were pleasantly surprised,” Dabney-Robbins said. “The gymnastics community in this state is pretty well-established. You’ve got some gyms that have been around for 30 or 40 years and have their meets at the same time, every year.” The meet will start at 9:30 a.m. on both days, with five sessions on Saturday that will continue until 8:45 p.m. and two sessions on Sunday that will end around 2:30 p.m.

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children under 12. Dabney-Robbins expects around 225 athletes to participate, which surpassed even her highest expectations. Add to the mix parents, siblings and other family members and the number of visitors to the city for the meet could balloon to around 800 to 900, DabneyRobbins said. GymSouth has been in operation for eight years and Dabney-Robbins finally got the chance last year to add on to her facility, which is located off Wisconsin

Avenue. The addition doubled the space available for gymnasts and equipment, which allowed both her competitive team and her recreational classes to train at the same time. The addition also allowed Dabney-Robbins to host her facility’s first meet, which she hopes to make an annual event. “For us in our first meet to get that kind of response, I’m really surprised,” Dabney-Robbins said. “We’re a relative newcomer.”

coach Bellard dead at 83 By The Associated Press

DALLAS — Emory Bellard, a former Texas A&M and Mississippi State coach credited with developing the wishbone offense when he was an assistant at Texas, died Thursday. He was 83. Cathy Capps, director of the Texas A&M Emory Lettermen’s Bellard Association, said Bellard died at a care facility in Georgetown in Central Texas. She said Bellard had Lou Gehrig’s disease. Bellard was on Darrell Royal’s staff at Texas in 1968 when the Longhorns developed a formation with three running backs that came to be known as the wishbone. “To say he was an important member of our staff at that time is an understatement,” Royal said. “He was a true friend, and that didn’t change whether he was in Austin, College Station or Starkville.” Bellard coached at Texas high schools for more than two decades at the beginning and end of his career, winning three state titles from 1958-66. His success landed him on the Texas staff, and while other assistants relaxed during the summer before the 1968 season, Bellard was busy trying to figure out a way to utilize a strong group of running backs after Texas endured three straight mediocre seasons. Bellard’s idea was to put a third running back a yard behind the quarterback, flanked by two more running backs a few yards behind to form what looked like a “Y.” Quarterbacks had three options — hand off to the fullback, keep the ball or pitch to one of the other running backs. The wishbone was similar to the two-back veer, which Houston was using to become a threat in the Southwest Conference. The Longhorns rode Bellard’s modification to a national championship in 1969, and Oklahoma made the offense nearly unstoppable in the 1970s and ’80s. “People all over the country and different levels of football adopted that offense,” said former Texas A&M coach R.C. Slocum, who was hired as an assistant by Bellard in 1972. “I think he was proud that the game he cared so much about, that he was able to make a significant contribution to it.” Slocum also credited Bellard with being among the first football coaches in Texas to recruit black players. “I don’t think he ever got the full credit for what he really did,” Slocum said. Bellard had a 48-27 record in seven years at Texas A&M before resigning during the 1978 season. He led A&M to three straight bowl games, including a win in the 1977 Sun Bowl. He was 37-42 in seven seasons at Mississippi State, from 1979-85.

College football Ole Miss quarterback has surgery on knee OXFORD — Ole Miss quarterback Randall Mackey has had surgery to remove cartilage in his left knee. Mackey could be ready for the beginning of spring practice on March 28. He is expected to be out two to four weeks after Thursday morning’s surgery, according to athletic department spokesman Kyle Campbell. The 6-foot, 190-pound junior from Bastrop, La., is expected to compete for the starting quarterback job with junior Nathan Stanley and junior college transfer Zach Stoudt. Barry Brunetti, who transferred from West Virginia, could also be an option if the NCAA grants a request to play immediately because of a family hardship. As a sophomore at East Mississippi Community College in 2009, Mackey led all junior college players with 3,122 passing yards. He redshirted last season.

EMCC hires Roach as defensive line coach SCOOBA — Former Alabama linebacker Freddie Roach has been hired as defensive line coach at East Mississippi Community College. Roach has spent the past two years as an assistant with the strength and conditioning program at Alabama. Roach was a fouryear letterman from 2002-2005 at Alabama. East Mississippi head coach Buddy Stephens said Roach will replace Larry Williams, who was hired at Copiah-Lincoln Community College after spending the past year at EMCC.

NFL NFL offers options to Super Bowl fans NEW YORK — The NFL said about 2,000 fans forced to sit in temporary seats at the Super Bowl will receive a face-value ticket refund or a free ticket to a future Super Bowl. This is the latest plan to appease fans significantly delayed in gaining pre-game access to their seats because of unsafe conditions for temporary seats at Cowboys Stadium. The plan, released Thursday, is separate from the one announced Tuesday by Commissioner Roger Goodell for the 400 fans who were denied seats. Those fans were taken to standing-room-only areas or spots without a view of the field. The 400 displaced fans have been offered a choice of a $2,400 payment and free ticket to next year’s Super Bowl, or a free ticket to any Super Bowl, plus round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations.

With 2:05 to play, SylvaBay’s Cody Prewitt came up with a steal and a layup to give the Saints (6-10) their first lead of the game at 44-43. A minute later, Gaston was fouled and split a pair of free throws. Jake Boyd contested the rebound and deflected it to Ted Brisco, who grabbed the loose ball and laid it in to give PCA a 46-44 lead. “That play was great. That’s everybody working as a team,” Warren said. “Ted hitting that shot was huge.” Sylva-Bay’s shooting then went cold and PCA closed it out at the line. Warren hit a pair of free throws with 36 seconds left and Gaston added four more in the last 25 seconds to make it 52-44. Sylva-Bay, which had shot 50 percent from the field

in the first 12 minutes of the second half, missed its last eight shots. PCA went 8-for-9 from the foul line in the fourth quarter, and was 13-for-18 for the game. The finish was eerily similar to the start of the game. Warren, Gaston and Brisco each hit a 3-pointer in the first four minutes as PCA jumped out to an 11-2 lead. Its advantage swelled to as many as 15 points in the second quarter before SylvaBay clawed its way back into the game. Gil Odom hit a pair of 3-pointers for the Saints as they outscored the Eagles 16-9 in the third quarter. Odom finished with 17 points, while Prewitt had 12 points, nine rebounds and four blocked shots. Brisco totaled 13 points and 11 rebounds for PCA. “Mentally, I think we let things go and got in some foul trouble,” Creel said. “We got outhustled a little bit and let them back in the game.”

Jerry Sloan resigned Thursday after 22 seasons with the Utah Jazz. He was the longesttenured coach currently in major professional sports. Sloan, who was choked up and wiped away tears during his farewell announcement Thursday, said there was no final straw. He simply said he didn’t have the energy to coach any more, and that the losses were getting tougher and tougher to handle. “I could have done it last week, done it a week before that or waited another week,” said Sloan, who has always thought it appropriate to conduct his pregame interviews next to a trash bin. “When it’s time for me to go, it’s time for me to go.”

Allen sets 3-point record BOSTON (AP) — Ray Allen broke the NBA record for 3-pointers on Thursday night, sinking two in the first quarter of the Boston Celtics’ 92-86 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers as the man he passed, Reggie Miller, sat courtside. Allen hit his second 3 of the game with 1:48 left in the first quarter to reach 2,561 in his career — a number that flashed on the scoreboard

while the fans erupted in applause. Allen celebrated little as he got back on defense, Ray but at the Allen next whistle went to Miller for a hug, then bumped fists with Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

ON THE HUNT

Vicksburg resident Derek Dolan, 14, bagged this 8-point buck in Hardeman County, Tenn. on Dec. 18. He made the 135-yard shot with a 30-06. He is the son of John and Gayle Dolan of Vicksburg.

Jamierra Faulkner had 13 points for Southern Miss (9-14, 4-6), while Washington grabbed 12 rebounds. East Carolina shot 60.7 percent from the field in the first half. It went on a 24-4 run, hit 10 3-pointers and opened a 48-28 halftime lead.

NBA

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Like the impressive mountains that dominate Salt Lake City’s skyline, Jerry Sloan was a fixture in the Utah landscape. Now, for the first time since 1988 — three years before Michael Jordan won the first of his six NBA titles — the Jazz will have a new head coach on their bench. Sloan stepped down Thursday with 1,127 wins as Jazz coach and 1,221 overall (including his short stint in Chicago). The career total is the thirdmost in NBA history. “He’s been there like this rock and all of a sudden the rock is gone,” Boston coach Doc Rivers said of the 68-yearold Sloan. “It’s like your franchise moved or something. I don’t know. It’s just strange.” Since Sloan took over in Utah for Frank Layden, there have been 245 coaching changes leaguewide — 13 alone by the Los Angeles Clippers. Five current NBA teams (Charlotte, Memphis, Toronto, Orlando and Minnesota) did not even exist when Sloan was hired by the Jazz. “As a colleague, we’ll miss him,” said Lakers coach Phil Jackson, who along with Sloan and Pat Riley were the only coaches in NBA history to have 15-plus consecutive seasons with a winning record. Sloan’s decision came after an emotional loss to the Bulls on Wednesday night, a night that saw his former team and former players help hand the Jazz a 91-86 loss. It was their 10th loss in the last 14 games and third straight at home following a 15-5 start. At halftime, Sloan and star point guard Deron Williams clashed, reportedly over how a play was run. It wasn’t the first time. Williams insisted there is no truth to the rumors that he forced the Hall of Fame coach out, and general manager Kevin O’Connor also said it was false that Williams gave management a “me or him” ultimatum. “I would never force coach Sloan out of Utah,” Williams said, deriding the media for twisting stories. “He’s meant more to this town, more to this organization than I have by far. I would have asked out of Utah first.”

floor leader,” Ole Miss coach Renee Ladner said. “We are struggling covering the three ball. We didn’t quit playing tonight but we didn’t do anything particularly well.”

Brandon Davidson, 14, bagged his first deer this season. The 7-pointer weighed 200 pounds. Brandon is the son of James and Christy Davidson.

Greenville and it had a huge impact on Vicksburg’s postseason. The Gators had to take the runner-up spot from Division 4 and were put on Starkville’s side of the bracket. Starkville eliminated Vicksburg in the North State semifinals and went on to claim the Class 6A title. Greenville, meanwhile, beat Murrah and secured a spot in the 6A state tournament. Vicksburg got to the division tournament finals by beating archrival Warren Central 71-39 on Tuesday. A smothering defense was the key, and the Gators will need a similar effort against Greenville-Weston, which held off Clinton 44-41 in the first round.

“I thought our guys really came out in the second half and got after them defensively,” Vicksburg coach Dellie C. Robinson said. “We need to get to better in our halfcourt sets, though. If we run our halfcourt sets properly, we can get any shot we want.” Vicksburg senior Josh Gaskin said the Gators know defense can carry the team to its goal of the school’s first state championship since 2003. “No matter what the score is or whether it’s the first quarter or the fourth quarter, we’re going to keep it (defensive intensity) up the whole way,” Gaskin said.

Friendship best thing to offer suicidal teen Dear Abby: I’m 13, and one of my best friends attempted suicide. “Greg” always seemed so happy, so this has come as a shock to all of us. When Greg returns to school, what should we talk about and how can we support him? — Given a Second Chance Dear Given: Greg is lucky to have such caring friends as you. Tell him you’re glad to see him and were concerned about him. Don’t pump him for details. If he wants to talk about what happened, let him do it in his own time. As for what to talk about with him, talk about the things you always have and include him in all the activities you have in the past. Knowing his friends care about him is very important. If you have further concerns, discuss them with a guidance counselor at school or contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The phone number is 800-273-8255. The website is www.suicidepre-

DEAR ABBY ABIGAIL

VAN BUREN

ventionlifeline.org. Dear Abby: Before I married my wife, I told her I didn’t want a housewife and she agreed she would never be out of work. Two months after tying the knot, she said she got fired from her job, but I think she quit. She’s asking me for money to do things I thought were dumb when we were dating. We dated for three years before getting married and she had the same job the whole time. She has now been out of work for a year. I feel like I have been tricked. I have never seen her look in the newspaper or search online for work. I think she was a better girlfriend than

wife. How do I fix this situation? — Unhappily Married Dear Unhappily Married: Remind your wife of the agreement you had before you were married — that you would be a working couple. Because you feel you are being taken advantage of, offer your wife the option of marriage counseling. However, if that doesn’t heal the breach in your relationship, talk to a lawyer. Dear Abby: I have a question regarding grocery store self-scan checkouts. Many grocery stores and supermarkets usually have four machines in one lane, two on each side. If they are all being used, are customers supposed to form one line — and the customer in front goes whenever a machine opens up? Or does each machine have its own individual line? I, along with most other people, wait in the middle in one lane. But many times someone will walk right past and stand behind someone

checking out! I never see signs posted and no employees ever say anything. Hopefully, you could clear this up for us. — Frustrated Shopper in Tennessee Dear Frustrated: This is a question that should be addressed to the manager of the grocery store where you are shopping. If most of the customers are forming a single line and someone cuts in, the folks in line usually have no hesitation telling the offender, “The line starts here!” But because there is some confusion, and the selfcheckout technology is still new, it makes sense that the management of the store would post a sign telling customers what is preferred.

Savvy 13-year-old on top of blood sugar Dear Dr. Gott: I am a 13-yearold diabetic. I have control of my diabetes, but right around Christmas I began having unreasonably high bloodsugar readings and I’m still having them now. The lowest sugar I have had is 140, and the highest is 281. I am not sick. I have no fever, and am not vomiting. I do not have a cough. I have checked my ketones multiple times, and they were all negative. My insulin is not expired. I even did a control test on my meter, and it came out to 101. I asked my parents, and they believe it’s the meter. It is about 1 1/2 years old. A while ago, another one of my meters did something like this. It would give me readings in the 20s and 30s when I was completely fine. But the control test on that one said it was normal, too. My dad recently

ASK THE DOCTOR Dr. PETER

GOTT

ordered a new meter, but what is your opinion on what could be causing these highs? Normally, I rarely have a sugar over 200, but now it’s every day. I want to fix my sugar! In case this helps, my meter is the FreeStyle Lite and my insulin is Novolog. I also have had asthma, but it is mild and I never use an inhaler. I think I outgrew it. Dear Reader: I must begin by congratulating you on your medical education. I constantly tell my readers that they need to remain informed. They can’t simply sit back and

take a physician’s word for something. You appear at the top of your game, and I commend you. While your current problem began around Christmas, I strongly doubt you indulged in goodies that may have been at your disposal so I will bypass that possibility. However, could you have modified your exercise program, do you eat dinner later in the evening, or have you had any dietary changes that you might not have considered relevant? This product is fastacting. Are you eating within five to 10 minutes of an injection? As with all insulin, the duration of action of this medication varies according to the dose, site of injection, blood flow, activity levels and more. Could any of these conditions have been modified? Perhaps you are administering

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m 13 and live with my mother and stepfather. Mom and John were married about two months ago. Mom and my real father were divorced about a year ago. She and Dad had many fights, so I guess it was good they parted ways. My real father and I are still close, and I talk with him almost every day, even though he is over 100 miles away. John is a nice man and I do like him, but I’m finding it difficult to accept him as the man who is taking the place of my real father. I don’t know if I will ever accept him as a father, and this bothers me. He is very kind to my mother and he treats me with respect. Please give me some pointers. — Michelle, Toledo, Ohio. Michelle: I applaud your positive attitude in a difficult

situation and have no doubt your family will make a successful transition. It takes patience and effort at open communication for a blended family to bond. You needn’t try to hurry things along and don’t feel guilty when misunderstandings arise. Dr. Wallace: I’m a 14 yearold-girl and don’t go more than 15 minutes every waking hour without a good laugh or smile. Is it true that people burn off extra calories from laughing? If so, how many? — Vickie, Marinette, Wis. Vickie: It’s nice to hear from a teen with such a sunny disposition. You are, indeed, a fortunate young lady. I never thought of laughing as a means of weight reduction, but a good 15-second laugh consumes about five more calories than a frown held for

the same length of time. Dr. Wallace: I have noticed that many teens are looking for incentives to keep their weight at a healthy level. I have a tendency to be on the chubby side. When it comes time for me to lose 15 pounds, I buy a few pieces of clothing that are a size too small, go on a healthy diet and exercise. I try the new, smaller clothes on every two weeks and ... ta-da! In about two months, the clothes fit perfectly and I feel very proud of myself. — Nameless, Marysville, Calif. Nameless: You’ve found a good incentive to lose weight. Now you need to find the motivation to keep up that healthy diet on a regular basis. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: Certain confidential information you become privy to could play a significant role in bettering your affairs in the year ahead. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Even if you’re not in the mood to socialize, as the day wears on, there is a good chance you’ll change your mind. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Family and friends might have a difficult time trying to keep something secret from you. The urge to investigate is too powerful to ignore, and your nose will sniff it out. Aries (March 21-April 19) — This could be an especially fun day for you if you spend your free time with friends who share similar interests. Limit your pals to those who think like you do. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — The financial return from a commercial endeavor might

not mean as much to you as the pride of accomplishment. It is likely to supersede anything profit can offer. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Those you consider to be your peers in your field of endeavor will be the ones who’ll put the most significance on your thinking and/or ideas. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Keep any project or idea you have going to yourself when out in public with friends. There likely is someone close who is listening and knows your competition and would tell all. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Something of substance can come from a conversation you’ll have with a person who possesses knowledge you could use to further a dream. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Sometimes it pays to act in harmony with your hunches, and today might be one of

those times, especially if it is career-related. Your idea has every chance of working. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — It’s a good thing you kept the lines of communications open with a good friend because there’s a chance you might hear from him/her about something that could be worth a lot to you. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Solutions can be found when you take the time to focus on a domestic problem you’ve been trying to resolve. Try them all, you’ll find out which one would work best. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — There is a good chance something far more interesting than what you already have planned could become an option. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If something gets broken, see if you can repair it before simply throwing it out.

it in your thigh or upper arm as a change, when you previously used your abdomen. I’m not making light of this, but you seem to be so wellinformed that I’m attempting to think outside the box for an explanation. Because meters vary, I recommend that you make an appointment with your endocrinologist for a check on a regular basis. Take your unit with you, and test it against the one in your doctor’s office immediately following his or her test. Are they synchronized or does your home unit require recalibration? If your physician sends out all work, take your meter to the hospital with you and do the testing there.

Stardom no shield from stroke risk Hollywood not immune, study finds

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hollywood trivia quiz: What do Sharon Stone, Dudley Moore, James Garner and Elizabeth Taylor have in common besides an Oscar nomination? All have suffered strokes, a reminder that money and fame can’t insulate you from a health risk that much can be done to prevent, researchers said Thursday. The International Stroke Conference is being held in Tinseltown for the first time, just three weeks before this year’s Oscars are to be awarded. So researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles had the idea to check movie stars’ rates of heart attacks and strokes. “We see the diseases that ravage them just as they ravage the rest of the country and the world,” said Dr. Jeffrey Saver, director of the stroke center at UCLA. He has treated several Hollywood glitterati who suffered strokes. The movie industry did wrong for many years by glamorizing smoking, a big contributor to stroke risk, he said. Paradoxically, it is now helping to make obesity unattractive, he said — celluloid is not kind to cellulite. For their study, researchers searched the Internet and a movie industry database to compile a list of all best actor/ actress nominees since the Oscars began in 1927 through 2009.

At a glance

Actress Sharon Stone in 1992’s “Basic Instinct” Of the 409 nominees, at least 29 have suffered strokes — 6 were fatal — and 39 have had heart attacks. Stroke sufferers were 35 on average when nominated and 67 when stricken. It put a dent in their careers — film and TV appearances fell 73 percent in the three years after a stroke and 69 percent after a heart attack, said study coordinator Hannah Smith of UCLA. And not all were old when stricken. The sexy actress Sharon Stone, nominated for an

Oscar in 1996 for “Casino” and known for her roles in “Total Recall,” “Basic Instinct” and “Catwoman,” suffered a stroke in 2001 at age 43. Hers was a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a type of “bleeding stroke” that is less common than those caused by a blood clot. A few years ago she appeared in a public service video to raise awareness of stroke symptoms (sudden numbness, weakness, vision or speech problems, confusion, sudden headache with no known cause).

Some who suffered strokes and their most recent best actor/actress nominations from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are: • Mary Pickford, 1930, “Coquette” • Bette Davis, 1963, “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” • Merle Oberon, 1936, “The Dark Angel” • Robert Donat, 1940, “Goodbye, Mr. Chips” • James Cagney, 1956, “Love Me or Leave Me” • Cary Grant, 1945, “None But the Lonely Heart” • Celia Johnson, 1947, “Brief Encounter” • Gene Kelly, 1946, “Anchors Away” • Anne Baxter, 1951, “All About Eve” • Broderick Crawford, 1950, “All the King’s Men” • Kirk Douglas, 1957, “The Lust for Life” • Burt Lancaster, 1982, “Atlantic City” • Richard Burton, 1978, “Anne of the Thousand Days” • Grace Kelly, 1955, “The Country Girl” • Anthony Franciosa, 1958, “A Hatful of Rain” • Elizabeth Taylor, 1967, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” •• Sharon Stone, 1996, “Casino” • Samantha Morton, 2004, “In America”

‘I’ve never ripped anyone off’

Kid Rock defends decision to play in snowy Ark. DETROIT (AP) — Kid Rock has posted an expletiveladen message on his website, defending his decision to perform as scheduled Wednesday night in snowy Arkansas. Some fans who were unwilling or unable to brave iceand snow-covered roads to get to Verizon Arena in North Little Rock, Ark., had voiced their displeasure on Rock’s website. The Detroit musician told fans that if they purchased

t i c ke t s t o t h e s h ow and couldn’t make it, “YOU WILL BE GETTING A REFUND, STRAIGHT OUT OF MY Kid POCKET.” Rock Rock said he’s “never ripped any of my fans off” and never missed a show. He also responded with pro-

fanity to people whom he said accused him of being “greedy” for deciding to go forward with the performance. Rock said many fans drove in poor weather to make the show, as did he and his band. “It’s not easy to tour in these conditions and also be stuck on the road with a teenage son at home and in high school,” he wrote. “I make alot of money, no question, but i’ve never ripped anyone off to do it.” The concert went ahead

after a winter storm dropped 2 feet of snow on parts of Arkansas and Oklahoma and three people died in two crashes on an interstate. Ve r i z o n A r e n a h a d announced earlier Wednesday that the concert would go on as scheduled. The arena’s general manager, Michael Marion, did not immediately respond to messages. Rock, 40, will play in Louisville, Ky., tonight and Greenville, S.C., Saturday.
