JACKSON — Mississippi senators today were set to debate a Senate redistricting plan sponsored by Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant. Opponents say they might try to ditch the plan and replace it with one drawn by the chamber’s own Other legredistrictislative acing comtion mittee. The Bryant plan would protect three Republican Senate seats in the Hattiesburg area. The plan sponsored by the Senate redistricting chairman, Republican Terry Burton of Newton, would convert one of the three Hattiesburg-area Senate seats into a majority-black district. It’s a seat now held by Republican Tom King of Petal, who is running for transportation commissioner this year. Republicans say the demographic change in the King district would likely flip the open seat to the Democrats. King said Wednesday he’s uncomfortable that many people are casting the issue in terms of race. “It’s a Democrat versus Republican issue, is what it is,” said King, who wants the seat to remain in GOP hands. Hattiesburg is a majority-black city, and many

County’s unemployment inches up after holidays By Danny Barrett Jr. dbarrett@vicksburgpost.com A greater percentage of Warren County’s work force was unemployed in January compared to revised figures for December. Local unemployment stood at 11.2 percent for January, from an adjusted 10 percent in December, said totals released Wednesday by the Mississippi Department of

Employment Security. The local labor force shrank by 940 people in January, from 22,670 to 21,730. The number of unemployed rose by 170, to 2,440. Seasonally adjusted unemployment statewide was unchanged at 10.1 percent in January. Unadjusted for seasonal factors in the work force such as weather and holidays, the rate was up a point to 10.7 percent.

State officials said a federally mandated process of updating and revising the previous year’s data had not been completed. As a result, the jobs agency said comparisons were “not strictly compatible.” The national jobless rate, which came in at 9 percent in January, fell to 8.9 percent in February. The state reports February figures later this month.

State Economist Darrin Webb said the January report was difficult to gauge because of the pending adjustments. “Before the January report, we were seeing slow gains,” Webb said. “I think after the adjustments are made, you continue to see a trend of slow gains. The economy is not going gangbusters, (but) it is improving.” The Warren County jobless

rate is down compared to a year ago, when it stood at 12.5 percent. “The Vicksbug WIN Job Center continues to see a small increase in job activity within the area,” said office manager Terry Hodges. “The retail and service sectors have also seen a slight increase.” Thirty visits with local See Jobless, Page A9.

The parole officer for a Port Gibson man being questioned in the death of a homeless woman over the weekend has recommended he be held on no bond, the city’s police chief said today. Dexter Watson, 40, 907 Vine St., is on parole for a malicious mischief charge, according to Mississippi Department of Corrections records. Further information about his sentence was not available. He is being questioned in 35-yearold Patricia Dotson’s death, and is in the Claiborne County Jail on drug charges. Port Gibson Dexter police Chief Watson Calvin Jackson said Watson is being held without bond, per the request of his parole officer. Dotson’s body was found behind First Baptist Church on Farmer Street Sunday morning. An autopsy showed she died of stab wounds to the face and trauma to the head. Investigators are awaiting the results of other tests from the Mississippi Crime Lab. Dotson had family in Port Gibson, including her grandfather, Constable Roosevelt Dotson.

ty-black district in the area now would amount to unfair gerrymandering. “Surely, at this point, it will fall of its own weight,” Bryan said of the argument. Legislators are drawing new districts in Mississippi’s 52-member Senate and 122-member House to reflect population changes over the past decade, including growth on the northern end of the state, in the suburbs of Memphis, Tenn., and declines in the Delta. The Democratic-controlled House passed its own redis-

tricting plan last week, but the Republican-controlled Senate Elections Committee killed the House plan on Tuesday. Lawmakers are expected to try to revive the House plan later. Legislators are under time pressure because redistricting plans must be approved by the U.S. Justice Department, which checks that such plans don’t dilute minority voting strength — an approval that could take 60 days. June 1 is the candidates’ qualifying deadline for this year’s elections.

A Vicksburg man said he was robbed at gunpoint at his Main Street home around 1:30 this morning, said police Lt. Bobby Stewart.

Mississippi Legislature

Senate vote pumps extra $65 million into public schools JACKSON (AP) — The Mississippi Senate voted Wednesday to put $65 million more into elementary and secondary schools than the chamber’s money committee had recommended. However, there’s no guarantee the spending proposal will survive final budget talks later this month. At issue is $65 million of federal money that the state received last year to help local school districts pay salaries and other expenses to retain jobs. The districts have until September 2012 to spend the money. Republican Gov. Haley Barbour asked districts several months ago to hold off on spending the federal money because of uncertainty about the timing of an economic recovery. Some districts have spent all or part of their share, and others say they haven’t touched it. The Senate Appropriations Committee voted Tuesday to consider the federal money as part of the state’s funding package for schools during the year that begins July 1. Critics said doing so would be the equivalent of cutting $65 million of state funding for classrooms. On Wednesday, the Senate reversed the committee’s decision — a move that would increase state financial support for the schools. The latest vote puts the Senate on roughly equal footing with the House recommendation for the education budget.

Insurance database bill survives deadline A bill designed to force compliance with Mississippi mandatory insurance laws passed Wednesday in the Senate, and was among several proposals facing a legislative deadline. The bill would allow the state Department of Public Safety, the Department of Revenue and the Insurance Department to work on a new program that would use computer technology to verify liability insurance coverage. Under the House bill, uninsured drivers could face various penalties, including a suspended driver’s license and a fine of up to $500. The bill also gives tax assessors and tax collectors the authority to deny vehicle license plates tags to motorists who aren’t insured. “There’s now the technology that allows instant verification when we can interface with insurance companies,” said Senate Insurance Committee Chairman Eugene “Buck” Clarke, R-Hollandale. The measure, which moves back to the House for more work, survived Wednesday’s legislative deadline for floor action on general bills and constitutional amendments that already passed the opposite chamber.

Dead and Alive A glance at the status of selected bills in the Mississippi Legislature: Alive • Animal cruelty — Senate Bill 2821 says the first offense of cruelty to dogs or cats would remain a misdemeanor, but the alleged offender would undergo testing at his or her own expense to screen for mental illness. Conviction for a first offense would carry a $2,500 fine or up to six months in jail. An offender could face a felony charge on a second offense. Punishment for a felony conviction would be a $5,000 fine and up to five years in prison. The bill has passed both chambers in different forms; it has been sent back to the Senate for more work. • Teacher conduct — House Bill 641 would provide specific reasons for suspending or revoking the license of a teacher or school administrator for sexual misconduct with a student. The bill has passed both chambers in different forms; the House has asked the Senate to negotiate on the bill. • Nathan’s Law — Senate Bill 2472 would increase the penalty for passing school buses. The bill was changed in the House to make a suspended driver’s license part of the punishment for second and subsequent offenses. It returns to the Senate for more work. • Insurance database — House Bill 620 would create a computer database state troopers could use to verify whether motorists have insurance when they are pulled over for other reasons. Alive and in House-Senate Negotiations • Immigration enforcement— Senate Bill 2179 would allow a law enforcement officer to check a person’s immigration status if the officer thinks the person might be in the United States illegally. Alive and headed to the governor • Fake bath salts — House Bill 1205 would outlaw fake bath salts and other products containing toxic chemicals that some people are using to get a psychotic high.

• ‘Bastard’ — Senate Bill 2986 would remove the words “bastard” and “bastardy” from state laws dealing with paternity proceedings for children of unmarried parents. • Underage drinking — Senate Bill 2597 would set penalties for people who host parties where minors consume alcohol. • Sex education — House Bill 999 would allow each school district to develop its own sex education curriculum to allow either the current state policy of abstinence only or an “abstinence plus” option. • Homeschooled students — House Bill 636 would require homeschooled students who are transferring into public schools to be tested to ensure they’re enrolled at the proper grade level. Signed by the governor • Open meetings — Senate Bill 2289 says that starting July 1, individual officials could face fines of $500 to $1,000 for improperly closing meetings that should be open to the public. Under current law, taxpayers have been footing the bill for the fines. It says that starting July 1, a person could be charged $100 per incident for improperly denying someone access to public records. Current law says there’s a $100 fine, but doesn’t specify that it’s for each incident. • Payday lending — House Bill 455, which becomes law Jan. 1, will give consumers longer to pay off loans from check cashing businesses and will reduce some finance charges. It also gives payday lenders at least three more years to stay in business in Mississippi. • Feticide — House Bill 2615 would clarify the state law related to injury or death of a fetus. Under the bill, a serious but nonfatal physical injury would be a felony. The bill says a minor injury to a fetus would be a misdemeanor. Dead • Texting ban — Senate Bill 2793 would’ve banned texting while driving, despite several lawmakers’ concerns about how such a measure would be enforced.

beliefs discourage testing and treatment. “We talked to people who said that they would rather die from the disease than let their neighbors know they have HIV,” said Megan McLemore, a senior health researcher with Human Rights Watch. The broader coalition, which includes Mississippi group A Bright New Day and Harvard researchers, hosted what they say is the first of many Annual HIV/AIDS

Days at the Capitol. They asked state lawmakers to reexamine a variety of state policies and increase the budget for treating patients. They also called for a more effective sex education bill than the one currently awaiting the governor’s consideration. Human Rights Watch said in a new report that Mississippi has promoted discrimination against homosexuals in schools, actively resisted accepting more federal funds, and failed to adopt proven

strategies to lower transmission and death. The report says this especially impacts minority groups’ access to information and care. “These policies combine to create a high-risk environment where it is difficult for many people to avoid HIV infection and to access lifesaving treatment and support,” according to the report, “Rights at Risk: State Response to HIV in Mississippi.”

Another call for domestic production Gasoline prices are jumping toward the “Oh no!” level, and if they continue upward, will soon have an unpleasant impact on consumer behavior. An economy still struggling to recover can’t afford for Americans to get nervous about spending. High pump prices have that effect. The huge 2008 run-up in oil prices throttled consumer spending, hitting the automobile industry particularly hard. The turmoil in the Middle East has pushed oil above $100 per barrel again, and gasoline prices are following suit. In Vicksburg, prices are hovering near $3.50 a gallon, with predictions that they will move higher. Unfortunately, at the same time foreign supplies are falling, domestic production is being curtailed by policies of President Barack Obama’s administration. The Interior Department continues to defy a federal court order that lifted a ban on deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico,

put in place during last spring’s oil spill. Rather than complying with the judge’s order, federal regulators have stalled the issuing of permits so that almost no new drilling has occurred in the Gulf in more than six months. In addition, the administration is standing firm on a seven-year ban on new drilling in the eastern Gulf and off the East Coast, and has expanded by 100 miles the no-drill zone off the coast of Florida. Vast areas in the nation’s interior have been placed off-limits to drilling, as has the oil-rich Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. Additional impact on consumers will come if Obama succeeds in his bid to raise taxes on oil companies. Those higher costs will be passed along. Pressure is being felt as well from rising worldwide demand for oil as the economy recovers. It adds up to the real possibility that gasoline could return to the

$4 a gallon level it hit in 2008, and possibly go higher. Democrats in Congress are urging the president to ease prices with releases from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. But that oil serves the purpose of protecting the country against a more serious contraction of imported oil. A better strategy would be to resume deepwater drilling in the Gulf, and consider exploring other domestic reserves. Rising gasoline prices serve the purpose of those who want an immediate and drastic reduction in the use of fossil fuels. But the notion that alternative energy sources can significantly replace the demand for oil anytime soon is a pipe dream. The risk that higher oil prices will send the economy back into recession is too great to ignore. Easing restrictions on domestic production is a necessary safeguard.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler

Ingenuity, backbone will be required to solve energy mess Once again, as we have seen so many times over the past decades, we are watching the Middle East implode and disintegrate. It was brought down by its own people who see themselves as having been left out of the governing process and reduced to servants of an evil dictator. Certainly television has helped spur them on by showing them how the rest of the world has prospered compared to their closed society. In a way, we and other oil hungry countries have helped this process along by sending billions of dollars into the coffers of their leaders who never permitted those dollars to filter down to the people or be used for their benefit. Since we now import 60 percent of our crude oil from other countries at the rate of 13.9 million barrels per day, and at a price hovering around $100 a barrel, we’re talking well over a billion dollars a day leaving our country for foreign shores — just for oil. If you figure one job in this country pays $50,000 per year, you can quickly see where all the potential

jobs have gone.. And still we refuse to explore, drill and produce our own oil — with our own people — so we could become an independent energy source. It is quite interesting that our smartest and best experts, who include the folks at the United States Geological Survey and at the Energy Information Administration, have been forecasting and predicting for the past two decades that our oil production would “peak out” within the coming decades. We have slipped by most of those predictions and continue to use oil and all its derivatives. Even so, we all know it can’t last forever and more

than ever we need to plan for it’s future demise. Those in the business like to joke that, based on supply and demand, the earth’s last quart of oil will be worth millions. Not really perhaps, but this is a way of recognizing how the market will work. Also, let’s not forget that oil can be derived from coal, and we have lots of that, and even greater oil is available in our oil shale, as found in four or five Western states. The geologists tell us we have available to us, through oil shale extraction, three to four times the yielding rate of Saudi Arabia, the largest producer in the Arab OPEC cartel.

Years ago we came close to starting an extraction plant in Colorado. OPEC, sensing they might lose a customer, simply dropped their prices — and we pulled up stakes and killed the project. Now they say it is no longer feasible because of the vast amounts of fresh water it would take to recover the oil. They say it would require as much water as that used by the city of Denver in one year. Really? In a few weeks we will be standing on the overlook off Washington Street, marveling once again, as we do each year, the immense flow of fresh winter-melt in the Mississippi River, as it flushes out the massive flood waters from the north — and sends them on to the Gulf. I also recall as a young man in South Dakota, working at just one of the several dams on the Missouri River. I also know that with the amazing technology we possess in this country, any freshman civil engineering student in one of our state colleges could figure out how to get some of that fresh water from the flood control projects, or from the Great Lakes themselves, into Colorado

for oil shale recovery. And you can be certain it wouldn’t be nearly as difficult as getting all that oil down here through the pipeline from Alaska. Of course we already know that drilling in the Gulf was shut down due to the spill and it had not been restarted following the cleanup — and many of the rigs gave up and moved elsewhere, while some simply were forced out of business. And now it was announced just this week that Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has canceled all existing oil shale leasing proposals — and they will have to be studied, commented on, and then rebid at a higher rate. Not a positive gesture at all. The last half-dozen administrations have simply given us “lip service” on bringing us into energy independence. It’s now bordering on gross ineptness and incompetence — and time is fast running out.

Illinois cuts death penalty, clears death row SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — For a mother who lost her son to violence, Illinois’ decision to abolish the death penalty is a betrayal. But to a father who lost two daughters and a grandson, it’s simply the Christian thing to do. And to a man who was sentenced to die for a crime he didn’t commit, it’s a civilized step that might inspire other states to halt executions. Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn’s signature on legislation getting rid of the death penalty provoked an extraordinary array of emotions Wednesday — almost all of them intense. A Chicago woman whose teenage son was gunned down in 2006 said the killer, who has never been caught, should not

change of heart after her son was shot outside a church. “But the pain you suffer every single day, I say take them out.” Charles Simmons knows that pain. The Peoria resident lost three relatives in a house fire that prosecutors say was arson. But Simmons said his religious beliefs argue against executing the killer — plus, he considers life in prison a harsher punishment. “He knows he’s not getting off easy,” Simmons said. “He’s not going to leave us, you know. He’s got to walk every day in jail, eat, face people in there.” When the abolition law takes effect July 1, Illinois becomes the 16th state without a death penalty. Most nations, including vir-

Tucson shooting survivors face suspect Loughner at hearing TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — In a tense courtroom scene, Susan Hileman stared intently from her wheelchair at the smiling suspect who authorities said wounded her and 12 others and killed six people in a Tucson shooting rampage in January. Wednesday’s hearing in Tucson was the first time that survivors of the violence, that also left U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords severely injured, came face-to-face with susp e c t Ja r e d Lee Loughner since the shooting. Two others — retired Jared Lee Army Col. Bill Loughner Badger and Mavanell “Mavy” Stoddard — sat on the opposite side of the courtroom as the 22-yearold Loughner, whose onceshaved head featured short, dark hair and sideburns. Two U.S. marshals stood just feet

Shooting victim Mavanell Stoddard leaves federal court Wednesday. behind Loughner throughout the hearing. Badger, 74, is credited with helping to subdue Loughner at the scene after a bullet grazed the back of Badger’s head. Stoddard, 75, was shot in the leg three times. Her husband, Dorwin, dove to the ground and covered her. He was shot in the head and died at the scene. Hileman, 58, was holding 9-year-old Christina Taylor-

Green’s hand when the shooting erupted. The woman was shot three times; Christina was killed. Loughner made one brief comment, at the beginning of the hearing. The judge asked the 22-year-old if Jared Loughner was his name. “Yes, it is,” Loughner responded as he stood behind the defense table. Loughner then pleaded not guilty to dozens of federal charges, including trying to assassinate Giffords, attempting to kill two of her aides, and murdering federal judge John Roll and Giffords’ staffer Gabe Zimmerman. The hearing took place in the same courthouse where Roll worked before he was killed in the tragedy. Loughner also is charged with causing the deaths of four others who weren’t federal employees, causing injury and death to participants at a “federally provided activity” and using a gun in a crime of violence.

tually all of Europe, have abandoned the death penalty. Among the 58 that still use it, according to Amnesty International, are the United States, China, Thailand, Egypt, Iran, Iraq and Japan. Quinn’s action capped two decades of argument and soulsearching over the possibility that Illinois would wind up executing an innocent person. Twenty people have been freed from death row after evidence surfaced to show they were innocent or had been convicted improperly. Then-Gov. George Ryan halted executions in 2000 rather than risk killing an innocent man. The state’s last execution took place in 1999.

Ohio murderer set to die using new execution drug LUCASVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A condemned killer was to be put to death today with the country’s first use of the surgical sedative pentobarbital spent the night before his execution awake and talking on the phone. Johnnie Baston also spent part of this morning praying with his daughter, Asziah Baston and his adopted mother, Tommie Nell Davis. Prisons spokesman Carlo LoParo said Baston has showered and also met with his lawyers and a minister.

The 37-year-old Baston was sentenced to die for killing Chong-Hoon Mah, a South Korean immigrant Johnnie who was shot Baston in the back of the head. Ohio switched to pentobarbital after supplies of the drug previously used ran short. Oklahoma also uses pentobarbital.

SMART MONEY Q: We have been living in Florida for 18 years. My husband is 86 and I am 82 years old. I am in very good health, but my husband is slipping. He walks very slowly, sleeps all night and part of the day. He cannot do the yard work anymore and that drives him crazy. My BRUCE two sons want us to come back to Buffalo, N.Y., to be closer to the family. They are looking for an apartment for us and tell us that they are building very nice senior apartments nearby. We feel on one hand we would like to be near our grandchildren but don’t know if we could take the cold anymore. It is so much cheaper living here and the weather couldn’t be better, but we are wondering what would be best for us. What would you advise? — Lois in Florida A: You’re very perceptive

when you mentioned the children. While the children would like you to come back home and you want to be near the grandkids, they are not available a great deal of time. Nor should they be. You mentioned you are in good health and if you are able to continue caring for your husband, my suggestion would be to stay put. The disruption in your life would be enormous. Going back to Buffalo after living in warm climate is going to be very difficult for both of you. Further, you mentioned your husband doesn’t get around too well. Getting around in Buffalo in wintertime is close to impossible. I am guessing you own your home, which is another variable because the real estate in Florida right now can best be described as soft. The task of moving can be daunting as well, but even harder for folks your age. All things being said, if it’s possible I would stay put. •

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Democratic-led Senate on Wednesday emphatically rejected a budget-slashing House spending bill as too draconian. It then immediately killed a rival Democratic plan that was derided by moderate Democrats as too timid in its drive to cut day-to-day agency budgets. The votes to scuttle the competing measures were designed, ironically, to prompt progress. The idea was to show Tea Party-backed GOP conservatives in the House that they need to pare back their budget-cutting ambitions while at the same time demonstrating to Democratic liberals that they need to budge, too. White House budget director Jacob Lew said the votes should turn a page and that talks between the administration and Republicans are likely to become more productive. The negotiators are unlikely

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, speaks to reporters after voting on the spending bill Wednesday. to meet a March 18 deadline, which means another stopgap budget extension would be required to keep the government from shutting down. “We want to come to a reasonable outcome,” Lew said. “We’ve made it clear that that’s not the end, that there are more savings. But we’ve also said that there’s a line

beyond which we can’t go.” Top Senate Democrats visited with President Barack Obama on Wednesday afternoon to plot strategy. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., a participant, declined to comment afterward, other than to say he recognizes his party will have to move in the GOP’s direction.

One reason is that Democratic moderates are agitating for further cuts to spending. “I still think there are way too many people in denial around here about the nature of the problem and how serious it is,” said Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who contended that the Democratic plan didn’t go far enough. But she said the GOP measure cut too indiscriminately. The GOP plan mustered 44 aye votes, including two from Mississippi Senators Roger Wicker and Thad Cochran; the Democratic measure received just 42 votes, with 10 party members and liberal independent Bernard Sanders in opposition. Moderates Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Ben Nelson, D-Neb., Bill Nelson, D-Fla., and McCaskill — each face potentially difficult reelection bids next year — were among those opposed to the Democratic version.

Wisconsin unions rights to be put to rest today MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Dozens of protesters camped outside the Wisconsin state Assembly chamber today in anticipation of a final vote on explosive anti-union rights legislation that whisked through the Senate after Republicans outmaneuvered their missing Democratic counterparts and brought a three-week stalemate to its unexpected end. The dramatic turn of events late Wednesday set up today’s perfunctory vote on the legislation that would strip collective bargaining rights from most public workers. Once the measure passes the Assembly,

it heads to Gov. Scott Walker for his signature. The legislation had been stymied after all 14 Senate Democrats fled to Illinois three weeks ago, preventing the chamber from having enough members present to pass it. The Senate requires a quorum of 20 to take up any measures that spend money. But a special committee of lawmakers from the Senate and Assembly voted late Wednesday afternoon to take all the spending measures out of the legislation and the Senate approved it minutes later, 18-1.

Continued from Page A1. it, said the chief. Tuesday night, his rental car was found near Jackson, Tenn. Authorities there say blood was found in the car. “Due to that and other evidence found in his vehicle, we believe Mr. Cupps has met with foul play,” Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said this morning. Armstrong said investigators believe the escapees, Ricky Wedgeworth, 36, and Darian Pierce, 33, were in Vicksburg Monday morning. Both were serving 25-year sentences and had been assigned as trusties on a work detail at the state police headquarters in Baton Rouge. They were noticed missing around 2 p.m. Friday during an inmate check. Authorities at the compound say they stole a white, state-issued van which was later found near St. Francis-

ville, according to a statement released by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. It was not known how they reached Vicksburg, but reports were received Monday around 10:55 a.m. that two men matching their description were seen on Pemberton Square Boulevard, near BancorpSouth and the Super 8 Motel near Halls Ferry Road. Police searched the area, Armstrong said, but did not find the men. Later, Cupps was headed to the same area, Stewart said,

and it’s believed that he came in contact with Wedgeworth and Pierce and that they carjacked him. “It is still a missing person case,” Armstrong said. “We are continuing to search in and around the Vicksburg and Warren County area for Mr. Cupps.” Vicksburg police asked for assistance from the Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol, and their helicopters searched an area from Interstate 55 to the Mississippi River Wednesday evening, looking for abandoned vehicles or other unusual activity in wooded areas, Stewart said. Cupps, a nuclear safety inspector, arrived in Mississippi Monday morning, rented a car at the airport in Jackson and worked that day at the Grand Gulf plant near Port Gibson. He is

5-foot-10, about 210 pounds, with salt-and-pepper hair and a groomed beard and mustache. He was expected back at Grand Gulf Tuesday and was to return to Ohio that night. His rental car, a red 2011 Buick Enclave, was stopped near Jackson, Tenn., by a Tennessee state trooper who recognized it as one placed on the National Crime Information Center after the investigation got under way. Two men inside the Enclave jumped out of the vehicle and ran into the woods. They are believed to have been Wedgeworth and Pierce. It is not known if the two are armed, but they are extremely dangerous, Armstrong said. It is believed they are on foot near Jackson, Tenn., where schools were placed on lockdown and police-supervised dismissal

Wednesday, and authorities searched house to house that night. Wedgeworth, a Memphis native, was convicted of armed robbery in Louisiana in 2006. He also has a criminal history in Shelby County, Tenn., police said. He is white, 5-foot-8 and about 145 pounds with reddish brown hair and brown eyes. He has tattoos on his arms, chest and abdomen. Pierce, of Bogalusa, La., was serving a sentence for attempted second-degree murder. He is white, 5-foot-11 and about 145 pounds with brown hair and eyes and tattooed fingers on his right hand. Anyone who has seen Cupps or has any information is urged to call Stewart at 601-831-1168 or the Vicksburg Police Department at 601-636-2511.

First new drug for lupus Gadhafi drives rebels from strategic oil port in 56 years OK’d by FDA CLASHES IN LIBYA

RAS LANOUF, Libya (AP) — Rebel forces beat a retreat from the strategic oil port of Ras Lanouf today, speeding back to opposition territory by the hundreds as Moammar Gadhafi’s army pounds the town with artillery. The opposition fighters fled eastward in cars and pickups mounted with machine guns. One said government forces were raining rockets or tank shells on the city in what appeared to be preparation Moammar for a full-scale Gadhafi advance. Shells fell near a hospital in the city and hit a series of residential buildings as Gadhafi’s tanks moved farther along Libya’s main Mediterranean coastal road than they have been since the rebels seized most of the country’s east. An opposition fighter with a Kalashnikov rifle said he had fled the frontline outside Ras

Canadian Defense Minister Peter MacKay, center, and other NATO defense ministers meet over Libya clashes in Brussels, Belgium, today. Lanouf to move deeper into the rebel-controlled east. The retreat was a major setback on a day of rebel victory on the diplomatic front. France became the first country to formally recognize the rebels’ newly created Interim Governing Council, saying it planned to exchange ambassadors after President Nicolas Sarkozy met with two repre-

sentatives of the group based in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi. “It breaks the ice,” said Mustafa Gheriani, an opposition spokesman. “We expect Italy to do it, and we expect England to do it.” Germany said it froze billions in assets of the Libyan Central Bank and other staterun agencies. The U.S., UK,

Switzerland, Austria and other countries have also frozen Gadhafi’s assets. “The brutal suppression of the Libyan freedom movement can now no longer be financed from funds that are in German banks,” Economy Minister Rainer Bruederle said. Both sides in Libya are lobbying for support from Western countries as their leaders debate whether to protect the rebels from Gadhafi’s air force by putting a no-fly zone over some or all of the country. Britain and France have backed the rebels’ calls for a no-fly zone, but the Obama adminstration has expressed deep reservations about involvement in another conflict in the greater Middle East. NATO said it had started round-the-clock surveillance of the air space over Libya, and British Foreign Secretary William Hague said a meeting of EU foreign ministers would discuss how to isolate the regime.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Food and Drug Administration Wednesday approved the first new drug to treat lupus in over 50 years, a milestone that medical experts say could prompt development of other drugs that are even more effective in treating the debilitating immune system disorder. Known as Benlysta, the injectable drug is designed to relieve flare-ups and pain caused by lupus, a little-understood and potentially fatal ailment in which the body attacks its own tissue and organs. Biotech drugmaker Human Genome Sciences Inc. spent 15 years developing Benlysta and will co-market it with GlaxoSmithKline PLC. The companies estimate there are at least 200,000 lupus patients in the U.S. who could benefit from the drug. But experts stress that Benlysta is not a miracle drug: It only worked in 35 percent of North American patients tested and was not effective for patients with the deadliest form of the disease.

Terror hearing starts amid boosted security WASHINGTON (AP) — Extra security will accompany a New York congressman as he chairs a hearing focused on the U.S. Muslim community and its willingness to help prevent radical Islamic terrorism. Rep. Peter King said that he has had larger security details for the past few months because of an overseas threat relayed in December. Since then, round-the-clock security has been provided by the New York Police Department and the Nassau County, N.Y., police. Today, however, at King’s request, the Capitol Police will be securing the congressional hearing room and surrounding areas, as well as his office, as the House Homeland

‘I am well aware that the announcement of these hearings has generated considerable controversy and opposition.’ REP. PETER KING Security Committee takes testimony. Rarely does a congressional hearing attract as much advance controversy. In protests ahead of the session, critics have condemned the hearing as anti-Muslim and have likened it to the McCarthy-era hearings investigating

communism. “I am well aware that the announcement of these hearings has generated considerable controversy and opposition,” King said in prepared opening remarks. “Congressional investigation of Muslim American radicalization is the logical response to the repeated and urgent warnings which the Obama administration has been making in recent months.” The witnesses include family members of young men who were inspired by others to go into terrorism, with deadly consequences. They plan to tell Congress that the young men were brainwashed by radical elements in the Muslim community.

ally, it did not show positive results in African-Americans, who are disproportionately affected by lupus. FDA said in its news release it would require the drug developers to conduct another study exclusively in AfricanAmericans. Dr. Betty Diamond, who has studied lupus for 30 years, said Benlysta should provide encouragement to researchers and drug developers. “It will send out the message that it’s possible to conduct a successful clinical trial in lupus and that’s tremendously important to keep the pharmaceutical industry interested in this disease,” said Diamond, a researcher at the Feinstein Institute in New York. Janice Fitzgibbon of McLean, Virginia has been taking Benlysta for two years as part of the drug’s clinical trial program. “It’s given me my life back,” she said, after being so crushed by pain that she couldn’t take her dog for a walk or drive her children to school.

Braves’ coach injured by errant foul ball

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — Atlanta Braves minor league manager Luis Salazar was awake and able to respond to doctors Wednesday after being hit in the face by Brian McCann’s foul liner while standing in the dugout during an exhibition game. Salazar may have sustained a concussion and might have a facial fracture and damage around his left eye, Braves general manager Frank Wren said. Salazar was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center and was to stay overnight. Wren did not have an official hospital report. “We are just blessed that Luis is alive,” Wren said after St. Louis beat Atlanta 6-1. “The scans so far have been positive ... There is an eye surgeon looking at it now. It was a freak accident.” “He was unable to speak when the paramedics arrived,” he said.

Gary Flowers’ ninth double-double of the season led Southern Miss past Tulane 63-47 on Wednesday in the first round of the Conference USA tournament. Flowers had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the fifthseeded Golden Eagles (22-9), who will face fourth-seeded Memphis (22-9) in the quarterfinals today. The senior forward reached double figures for the 27th consecutive game. “We played one of our better games against this Tulane team,” USM coach Larry Eustachy said. “I think they more than anybody in the league just played and played all year long and never threw out a bad one. It’s a good win for us; it’s already behind us. We have lofty goals here and it’s just a step in the right direction.” LaShay Page added 12 points and Josimar Ayarza 10 for Southern Miss, which shot 46.8 percent while limiting Tulane to 34.0. The 12th-seeded Green Wave (13-17) got 16 points from Kris Richard and 15 from Kendall Timmons. Richard hit four 3-pointers. Trailing 5-4, Southern Miss reeled off the next 10 points, ending with a basket by Ayarza that made it 14-5 with 14:51 left in the first half. The Golden Eagles held the Green Wave scoreless for the final 5:09 and led 35-18 at halftime. The second-half lead peaked at 22.

Publicly financed stadiums are a thing of the past The economy is a shambles. Unemployment hovers around 10 percent by government estimates and gas prices are rising faster than the altimeter in the soon-tobe-retired space shuttle. The states and the federal government are facing enough red ink to drown the world, as revenues sag and spending continues to increase as neither political party wants to be the one to cut off the tap of borrowed money. The NFL and the NBA both face potential lockouts. The NBA has done it once, in 1999, and suffered heavily for it. The NFL has more to lose as the owners continue negotiations with the NFL Players Association to prevent a lockout that would be harmful to the league that makes $9 billion per year.

cloth dark, yes. Finding a silver lining in this morass is as difficult as trying to find a vegan at a barbecue festival. But there is one positive development out of these ashes. Maybe all of this chaos will finally put a torpedo below the waterline into the horror of public financing of stadiums and arenas. We just can’t afford it. The party is over. For too long, mega-rich owners threatened, like kids holding their breath, to move their teams out if they didn’t

get the gold-plated, revenuegenerating monster stadiums of their dreams. Like the spoiled “princesses” of the awful MTV reality show, “My Super Sweet 16,” they want the best. And they want it now, courtesy of money harvested from you by your government. Arthur Blank, whose Atlanta Falcons play in the Georgia Dome built in 1989, wants a new stadium and wants taxpayers to foot the bill with bonds. Never mind he once owned the massive home improvement chain, Home Depot and is a reputed billionaire. He just can’t be bothered to use his own money to build a stadium for his own team. Same with Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf, who is using the collapse of the Metrodome’s inflatable roof in a once-in-adecade snow storm this past

season to agitate for a new stadium. He’s a billionaire, too. Rome built the Coliseum in 79 A.D. and it was used for gladiatorial contests until 435 A.D. In contrast, 22 out of the NFL’s 32 teams had a new stadium built in the past 20 years. Guess they don’t make them like they used to. Or at least they don’t make them with enough luxury suites to bring in more cash for the team owner. For years, owners told the people and their government that a new stadium generates new revenue thanks to fans — smitten with all of the bells and whistles bought with tax dollars — who visit the area around the stadium and spend money. But one doesn’t have to be a rocket scientist to realize that the average person isn’t going

to make a special, extra trip to a stadium just because of a new LED ribbon board or new stand selling $10 beer —or some new revenuegenerating luxury suites for plutocrats. Even if it’s a new stadium in a new city, the economic activity just declines in the old city and migrates to the new one. In the end, with sky-high ticket prices, personal “seat licenses,” parking fees and the rest, the only way the average fan can attend a game is to save up and go once a year, if they’re lucky. Even if they’re footing the bill the other 364 days out of the year. •

College football Michael Hunt leaves MSU team STARKVILLE — Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen says linebacker Michael Hunt has decided to leave the football program. Hunt, a 6-foot-3, 245-pound sophomore, played in 12 games last season, making 21 tackles. MSU coach Dan Mullen said Hunt had lost his desire to play football, making the decision earlier this week. The Meadville native was expected to compete for a starting linebacker spot next season. The Bulldogs must replace departed seniors Chris White and K.J. Wright, who combined for 208 tackles last season.

Georgia reports NCAA violations in recruitment ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia admits that it broke NCAA rules in its recruitment of linebacker Ray Drew. The school sent a letter to the Southeastern Conference saying that two former football players attended a Jan. 28 news conference in which Drew announced his commitment to Georgia. That was a violation of five NCAA bylaws relating to illegal contract before signing a letter-of-intent.

Florida closes spring practice to fans, media GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida is closing spring practice for the first time in school history.

Muschamp believes closed practices could give the Gators the element of surprise next season with new offensive and defensive schemes.

Yarbrough, Rebels Memphis overwhelms Southern Miss fall to Hilltoppers From staff reports Four Tigers posted doubledigit scoring totals, including an 18-point performance by center Jasmine Lee, as sixthseeded Memphis defeated No. 11 seed Southern Miss, 71-63, in the opening game of the Conference USA Tournament Wednesday at UTEP’s Memorial Gym. Lee, who was forced to leave the game early in the first half after being undercut by a Golden Eagle defender, played with a noticeable limp for much of the contest but came up big with 10 free throws in 13 trips to the line to help keep a frisky Golden Eagles squad at arm’s reach despite numerous late-game comeback attempts. Southern Miss finished with a 10-20 record. “I’m very proud of this group of young ladies to fight the way we fought today,” Southern Miss coach Joye LeeMcNelis said. “This year has been a real challenging year for us, injury-wise. We have overcome those obstacles and, as a team, we held ourselves together. They grew stronger as a team. The win and loss column does not prove of what this team has done this year to overcome those obstacles.” While Memphis led for the final 27:43 or regulation and led by as many as 10 twice in the second half, the Golden Eagles refused to give in and made it a one-possession game on three separate occasions over the final 20 minutes

With the win, Memphis improves to 20-11 on the year and advances to take on No. 3 seed Rice on today in the quarterfinals. In addition to her performance from the charity stripe, Lee also hit 4-of-7 field goals and finished with six rebounds and an assist. Ramses Lonlack was next for Memphis with 11 points while Mary Jack-

son and Brittany Carter both scored 10. Alex Winchell tallied a team-best five assists and the duo of Jackson and Nicole Dickson shared teamhigh steals honors with three apiece. Southern Miss scored the first four points of the game and led by as many as five at 17-12 with 11:43 left to play in the first half. Memphis cut the deficit to one twice and eventually tied the contest on 19-all courtesy of a Taylor

Mumphrey free throw at the 9:45 mark. A Jackson basket 2:02 later broke the deadlock and the Tigers never trailed again. Jackson’s shot was part of a 12-0 run that saw Memphis turn a 19-16 deficit into a 28-19 advantage in the span of 5:43. The Memphis lead swelled to as many as 12 at 34-22 with 2:43 to go before the break and a 3-pointer by Southern Miss’ Danielle Johnson made it a nine-point affair heading into the locker rooms at halftime. The two teams traded baskets to open the second stanza, but Southern Memphis turned a 37-27 Memphis lead into a three-point game when Niesha Pierce laid one in at the 14:47 mark to make it 41-38. Three minutes and 39 seconds later, the Tigers were back up eight at 48-40, but the Golden Eagles scored five straight to make it a 48-45 affair. The score remained a threepoint differential at 52-49 with 7:56 left in regulation and it appeared as if Memphis finally put enough distance between itself and upset-minded Southern Miss as the Tigers used a 13-5 rally to push their advantage to double digits. The Eagles, meanwhile, answered with a 6-0 streak to make it a four-point game at 65-61 with 1:11 showing on the clock. That, however, was as close as Southern Miss would get the rest of the way as Memphis hit six straight free throws and was able to run out the clock.

Jack’s clutch free throws sink Mavericks By Brett Martel The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — Jarrett Jack put his faith in the officials in the tense final seconds and they rewarded him with an unlikely foul call against savvy veteran Jason Kidd. Kidd was whistled on Jack’s flailing 3-point attempt with 8.4 seconds to go. Then Jack capped a 21-point outing with three free throws to complete an 8-0 New Orleans run inside the final minute that lifted the Hornets to a dramatic 93-92 comeback victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night. “I saw (Kidd) kind of close in on me, so I could swipe under his arm and I was able to get the call, go to the free throw line and knock down free throws,” Jack said. The Hornets trailed 92-85 when Dirk Nowitzki made a technical free throw with 1:13 left, then Marco Belinelli hit a 3 and Emeka Okafor put back

Tyson Chandler, who had 16 points and 13 rebounds in his

return from a sprained right ankle, then missed two free throws with 17 seconds to go. That set up the decisive possession on which Kidd, who stopped short of admitting a foul, credited Jack with making a “smart play” to get to the free throw line. Dallas still had one more chance to win it, but for the second time in New Orleans this season, Nowitzki was unable to convert, his 18-foot rainbow jumper over Okafor’s outstretched arm bouncing high off the front rim. Nowitzki, who had the ball stolen from him by David West in the final seconds of the Mavs’ 99-97 loss in New Orleans in November, turned and walked toward the tunnel in disgust while Hornets players stormed off the bench, several jumping on Jack’s shoulders. The Hornets outrebounded Dallas 44-31 and did not allow the Mavs an offensive rebound in the second half.

France pleased with NASCAR’s ratings uptick CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR chairman Brian France passed on the chance to trumpet the fast start to the season, stressing the task is sustaining the positives over the entire year. Television ratings are up for the first three races of the season, and the events at both Phoenix and Las Vegas sold out. France also credited the competition, which produced 20-year-old Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne and saw Jeff Gordon snap his 66-race losing streak. “No one around here is celebrating,” France said in a Wednesday conference call. “We’re obviously pleased we’re up dramatically in our ratings, but we know that is an ebb and flow thing. We’re focused on a lot of things that will give us growth down the road. “We’re going to work on those, not get too excited or too down.” NASCAR does not race this weekend because the series

has historically had an early season break. Despite concerns the timing could hurt the momentum NASCAR is trying to build after several seasons of slumping ratings and attendance, France said the length of the 11-month season made it a minor issue. But, the off weekend will move next season because NASCAR is pushing back the Daytona 500 one week in response to potential NFL scheduling changes. “In my view, all things being equal, we’d probably like to be racing this weekend,” France said. “But I don’t believe that to be a significant challenge for us because we happen to have an open week. We have a long season; we’re going to have some open weeks. In the long run, with the 500 moving, it will by definition take care of that.” Speaking for the first time since January, France used the 30-minute national conference call to discuss a successful first three races.

Bayne’s surprise win in the Daytona 500 created a buzz for NASCAR that carried over into the last two weeks. Gordon, the four-time series champion, then won at Phoenix and Carl Edwards won before a sellout crowd in Las Vegas. The weekend also was marked by Danica Patrick’s career-best fourth-place finish in the Nationwide Series — the best finish by a woman in a national NASCAR race — and a strong run by Dale Earnhardt Jr. that moved NASCAR’s most popular driver into the top 10 in points. France hoped all could help NASCAR attract the coveted 18-to-34 fan base that’s declined the past several years. “I think having a young winner, and Jeff Gordon runs up our young fan base, and then Junior, arguably he’s competitive more than he was a year ago,” France said, adding that Patrick dispelled the “discussion did she have the right stuff to compete in

the Nationwide Series? The upswing has been noticed by both drivers and track operators, as well. Marcus Smith, president and CEO of Speedway Motorsports Inc., said corporate sponsorship was up at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last weekend and pointed out that Quaker State just signed on as title sponsor of Kentucky Speedway’s inaugural race. “I think the sponsorship will come back more quickly than attendance,” Smith said. “We’ve got a lot of other announcements about people coming back, a lot of renewals with our sponsors, and a lot of new companies interested in our sport.” Kasey Kahne said there’s been a noticeable increase in energy. “The crowds have looked good. I know at Daytona, you go to get in your car, and you see that many people at the race track again, it’s impressive,” he said. “It’s nice to be part of that.”

From staff reports Alex Yarbrough went 2-for-5 with two RBI and came up with a big hit to cut an early Hilltopper lead to one, but the Rebels weren’t able to hold on down the stretch as Ole Miss fell to Western Kentucky 7-3 on Wednesday night in Oxford. Ole Miss cut the early Western Kentucky lead to 4-3 in the fifth inning on the Yarbrough hit, but single runs in the seventh, eighth and ninth pushed the advantage out to the final 7-3 score for the Hilltoppers. Matt Tracy (1-1) took the loss for the Rebels. He allowed four runs on six hits with three walks and six strikeouts in 31⁄3 innings of work. Brian Edelen (1-0) picked up the win for Western Kentucky as the predetermined pitcher of record. Edelen allowed one run on two hits with a walk and five strikeouts in 2 2⁄3 innings of work. Western Kentucky struck first, pushing three runs across the plate in the second inning. A lead-off single from Ryan Hutchison started things off before a walk and another single loaded the bases. Casey Dykes then singled up the middle to score a run and keep the bases loaded for the Hilltoppers. Two batters later, Ivan Hartle doubled down the left field line with two outs to drive in two more runs and give Western Kentucky the 3-0 lead. Ole Miss (10-4) answered in the third, using a single to right from Yarbrough to score Austin Anderson from second. Anderson opened the frame with a single before taking second on a wild pitch to set up the score on the Yarbrough hit to cut the lead to 3-1. The Hilltoppers (7-5) added a run in the fourth when Logan Robbins scored from third on a fielder’s choice to short from Hartle. Robbins doubled and took third on a sacrifice bunt from Matt Borgeschulte. He then scored on a slow roller deep in the hole at short that was fielded by Anderson and thrown to third to get the trailing runner as the only real option available on the play. Again, Ole Miss responded by pushing a pair of runs across the plate in the fifth inning to trim the lead to one. A double to right center from Will Allen put the first man on before a double to shallow center from Taylor Hightower put both runners in scoring position with one out. Allen scored on a groundout to second from Tanner Mathis before Hightower scored on a single through the right side from Yarbrough. The Rebels were unable to overtake Western Kentucky in the end, however, as the Hilltoppers pushed runs across in the final three innings to claim

College Baseball the 7-3 win.

Mississippi StateUAB game postponed Mississippi State trailed UAB 4-3 in the sixth inning when heavy rains hit at Young Memorial Field in Birmingham. The contest was suspended and will be resumed at a date to be determined. The Bulldogs reached their first two base runners in the top half of the sixth inning. After about an hour rain delay, the tarp was finally pulled. A final passing shower started falling before field maintenance could be completed. Thus, the coaches decided to suspend with completion at a later date. MSU has actually won 16 straight series meetings against UAB. However, the series streak’s extension was in jeopardy as the Blazers scored twice in the second and fifth innings. In the second inning, UAB struck first when Ryan Ussery doubled, former PCA star Michael Busby walked and Jacob German followed with a two-run double. The Bulldogs grabbed a 3-2 lead, thanks to a three-run inning off only one base hit in the third inning. Two walks and a hit batsman loaded the bases. Jarrod Parks followed with a three-run double into the right field corner. MSU starter Kendall Graveman was chased during UAB’s two-run fifth inning. An RBI-single by Jamal Austin chased Graveman and tied the game 3-3. In relief, Andrew Busby was greeted by a goahead RBI-single by Patrick Palmeiro.

LSU 6, Sacred Heart 1 LSU right-hander Tyler Jones fired seven strong innings, and shortstop Austin Nola delivered two hits and an RBI triple to lead the seventhranked Tigers past Sacred Heart at Alex Box Stadium. The Tigers (12-1) distanced themselves from the Pioneers late with four runs in the seventh and eighth innings. Jones (3-0) remained undefeated as the junior surrendered only three hits and one earned run and struck out four. Nola finished 2-for-3 on the night with a run scored and a walk, while left fielder Trey Watkins set the table for the Tigers out of the lead-off spot with a pair of runs, an RBI single and a walk. Freshman right-hander Ryan Eades relieved Jones in the eighth and hurled a scoreless frame before Matty Ott finished off the Pioneers.

Source: Gibson makes battery case deal Mel Gibson has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors who plan to file a misdemeanor battery charge against the Oscar winner over a fight last year with his then-girlfriend, a person with knowledge of the case said Wednesday. Gibson will appear in person to enter the plea, according to the person. Gibson was expected to be formally charged with battery this week, and the agreement Mel Gibson could allow the actor-director to avoid jail time. The charge stems from a dispute between Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva in January 2010. The Russian musician did not report the incident until months later, after the pair broke up and had negotiated a custody agreement involving their infant daughter.

Clapton guitar replica sold for $30,000 Even without his nimble fingers touching their strings, Eric Clapton’s guitars rocked New York City on Wednesday as an auction of them brought in millions of dollars. A 1948 Gibson L-5P sold for $82,960, well above its presale estimate of $20,000 to $30,000. And a replica of a prized Clapton guitar that duplicates the cigarette burns and belt buckle scratches found on the original sold for $30,500 at the auction. The sale at Bonhams New York included 75 guitars and 55 amps from the British artist’s collection and brought in $2.15 million. Proceeds were to benefit a drug and alcohol treatment center Clapton founded in the West Indies. The 65-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is a recovered addict who established the nonprofit Crossroads Centre in Antigua in 1998. The replica Fender Stratocaster “Blackie” guitar is inscribed in silver felt pen with “Eric Clapton 2010.” The original “Blackie” sold at Christie’s in 2004 for $959,500. It was the most expensive guitar ever to be sold at auction, said Bonhams’ expert, Carey Wallace. The Los Angeles-based Guitar Center bought it.

Pot grower uses gator to protect stash California narcotics investigators found a $1.5 million marijuana growing operation at a house and an unusual security guard — a 4-foot-long alligator named Wally. The Riverside County drug task force team moved in on the Hemet area house Monday night and seized nearly 2,300 pot plants. The commander said agents also found the reptile, described as a “watchgator.” The healthy 55-pound American alligator was turned over to the Phelan-based Forever Wild Exotic Animal Sanctuary, since gators are illegal in California. John Nathan Donna, 29, who lives in the home, was arrested and booked for investigation of marijuana cultivation and possession. He was released Tuesday on $100,000 bail.

BAD TIMING?

Washington NPR chaos comes amid funding fight columnist David Broder dead at 81 WASHINGTON (AP) — NPR will forge ahead in the fight for federal money despite six months of bad PR — and without its chief executive. NPR’s president and CEO resigned Wednesday to limit the damage from hidden camera footage of a fellow executive deriding the Tea Party movement as “seriously racist.” Conservatives called the video proof that the network is biased and undeserving of federal funds. From the news organization’s perspective, the timing was exceptionally bad. The battle for funds will be the toughest yet, with Republicans in the new House majority looking to cut all federal funding of public radio and television. It’s the latest blunder for the news organization, which publicly admitted fumbling the firing of analyst Juan Williams over comments he made about Muslims. Then NPR had to apologize to the family of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords when it falsely reported the congresswoman’s death. Vivian Schiller said staying on as chief executive would only hurt the looming battle over funding, which public broadcasting officials claims would force some stations to fold. “We took a reputational hit around the Juan Williams incident, and this was another blow to NPR’s reputation. There’s no question,” she said. The video showed two conservative activists posing as members of a fake Muslim group at a lunch meeting with NPR’s top fundraiser, Ron Schiller, who is not related to Vivian Schiller and who also resigned. The men offered NPR a $5 million donation and engaged in a wide-ranging discussion about Tea Party Republicans, proIsrael bias in the media and

It’s been hijacked by this group that is ... not just Islamophobic but, really, xenophobic,” Ron Schiller said in the video, referring to the Tea Party movement. “They believe in sort of white, middle America, gun-toting — it’s scary. They’re seriously racist, racist people.” He also said NPR “would be better off in the long run without federal funding,” a statement most Republicans agree with. Last month, when the House voted to eliminate funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which provides money to public radio and tele-

vision stations, no Republicans stepped forward to defend it. Sen. Jim DeMint, a South Carolina Republican, introduced similar legislation in the Senate last week. Similar efforts to strip funding from public broadcasting in 2005 and in the 1990s were unsuccessful, but DeMint’s spokesman Wesley Denton said, “I don’t expect the vote to be the same as it has in the past.” Rep. Earl Blumenauer, a Democrat from Oregon, said this is the first time he hasn’t been able to get interest from any Republicans to co-chair the Public Broadcasting Caucus that he founded a decade ago.

Violence never in God’s name, Pope Benedict XVI says in book VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI rejects the idea of Jesus as a political revolutionary and insists that violent revolution must never be carried out in God’s name in a new book being released today amid great fanfare at the start of Lent. “Jesus of Nazareth — Holy Week: From the Entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection,” is the second installment of Benedict’s planned trilogy on Jesus. Part I, which covered Jesus’ early ministry, shot to the top of the bestseller lists in Italy when it was published in 2007. Already, 1.2 million copies of Part II have been printed in seven languages, and reprints of 100,000 more are planned for the Italian editions and 50,000 in German. In the book, Benedict exonerates the Jews as a people for Christ’s death. He also insists that Jesus never advocated violent revolution, as some liberation theologians have suggested, saying violence was not His way no matter how valid the motivation. Benedict has spoken out frequently to denounce religiously motivated violence against Christians in the Middle East, Pakistan and elsewhere. “The cruel consequences of religiously motivated violence are only too evident to us all,” he noted in

the book. “Violence does not build up the kingdom of God, the kingdom of humanity. On the contrary, Pope it is a favorite Benedict XVI instrument of the Antichrist, however idealistic its religious motivation might be,” Benedict wrote. “It serves, not humanity, but inhumanity.” The Vatican and its foreignlanguage publishers have gone to remarkable lengths to promote the new book, coordinating the release of excerpts, scheduling primetime press conferences and releasing the 362-page text to coincide with the run-up to Holy Week, when the faithful commemorate Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. In the book, Benedict concludes that the Jews as a people weren’t responsible for Jesus’ death, but only a few Jewish leaders and their supporters, affirming that the centuries of mistrust of Christians toward Jews was deeply misplaced. While the Catholic Church has been teaching that for nearly 50 years, the fact that the pope said it so authoritatively prompted praise from major Jewish groups and a

thank you note from Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu.

WASHINGTON (AP) — David Broder, one of the nation’s premier political reporters for decades, was a curious mix of old and new. He combined unglamorous shoe-leather reporting with a knack for detecting trends ahead of his competitors. A rumpled dresser with thick glasses and a shirt pocket full of pens and pencils, he was constantly in demand by goodlooking TV news hosts who craved the insights and knowledge he had gained while covering every presidential campaign since 1960. The Washington Post reporter and David columnist Broder earned the unofficial title “dean” of political reporters as a comparatively young man. But he kept working until his 80s, sometimes typing away in an incredibly cluttered office late at night or on Sundays in a nearly empty newsroom. Broder, who was 81 when he died Wednesday from complications from diabetes, was so renowned for his even-handed, down-the-middle approach that politicians spent years debating whether he was at heart a Republican or Democrat. Fittingly, accolades poured in from all sides Wednesday. President Barack Obama said Broder “built a welldeserved reputation as the most respected and incisive political commentator of his generation.” Broder emerged as a surefooted, prescient political journalist in the days of clunky typewriters and carbon copies, when “the boys on the bus” sometimes cobbled together a campaign story under the byline of an inebriated colleague who otherwise might be fired. “If there was a pack, he was the leader of it,” said veteran Associated Press political writer Walter Mears, who met Broder in the early 1960s.

Secrecy sacred to cooks who relish mystery Dear Abby: I’m responding to the letter from “Craving the Cakes in Florida” (Jan. 30), complaining that her sister-in-law wouldn’t reveal the secret ingredient in a late relative’s pancake recipe. As a cook who has many of my own kitchen secrets, I’d be upset if one of my family members were to reveal them to anyone I didn’t authorize. A promise is a promise, and it should never be broken! Believe it or not, recipes are intellectual property. How presumptuous for Craving to expect her in-law to divulge a secret from the family’s tradition. She should enjoy the meal when she’s at her sisterin-law’s, and work on developing her own mystery dish. — Staying Mum in Charleston, S.C. Dear Staying Mum: Many readers agreed with you about the importance of keeping a promise. Some of them also were sure they knew the secret ingredient that made the cakes so memorable: buttermilk, ricotta cheese,

Read on: Dear Abby: I obtained a recipe upon the death of an aunt who wouldn’t share it until she passed away. I did not think she was selfish. I fondly remember her serving these cookies the few times a year we saw her. I bake them for special occasions — holidays, birthdays, graduations, etc. — and mail them to family and friends out of state. The treats are special and everyone looks forward to receiving them.

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Follow your basic instincts, because financial situations are trending in your favor. They could take you into a situation that would make or save you a lot of cabbage. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Both planned and spontaneous developments will bring you a great deal of enjoyment. Follow your plans but have enough flexibility to take advantage of the little surprises of life. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — If you see that your associates are managing matters in a competent manner, don’t rock the boat in any way. Relax and let them handle things for a change. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Some close friends you haven’t seen much lately are just as eager to see you as you are to see them. Be the initiator and contact them about getting together very soon. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Fortunate developments concerning your work or career are stirring for you at this point in time, and are likely to be of great significance. Take positive action on what goes down. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Without even trying, you’ll command the respect of your peers. It is likely to be the impact from your words and concepts that will bear the sweet, sweet fruit. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — This is likely to be a day full of nice surprises and fulfilled expectations. Someone who has your best interests at heart will go out of his/her way to do helpful things for you. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You won’t have to project yourself into a situation that could enable you to function as a broker or middleman — you’ll be drafted into the position. Profitable developments will come of it. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It might take certain challenges to stimulate your juices where your work or career is concerned, but once revved up, you’ll take care of business.

Chilling with people who are too reserved could squash your wonderful enthusiasm. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — This is likely to be the day you’ve been looking for to present a matter to your family that requires their consent. Their positive mood could produce the accord you need. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Mental exercises have excellent chances of being productive and successful for you. Being a fast thinker with sound judgment, your disclosures will win the support of others.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: My father works for a water district and promotes saving water as a way to help our planet survive. I’d like to share nine ways to save water in the bathroom with your readers: • Check your toilet for leaks. Put a few drops of food coloring in your toilet tank. If the coloring begins to appear in the toilet bowl without flushing, you have a wasteful leak that should be repaired at once. • Stop using your toilet as an ashtray or wastebasket. • Put a plastic bottle in your toilet tank. Put an inch or two of sand or pebbles in the bottom of a quart bottle and fill the rest of the bottle with water. Place the bottle in your toilet tank, safely away from the operating mechanism. The bottle will save water on each flush without impairing the efficiency of the toilet. • Take shorter showers. Limit your shower to the time it takes to soap up, wash down and rinse off. • Install water-saving shower heads or flow restrictors.Your hardware or plumbing supply store stocks inexpensive shower heads and flow restrictors, which are easy to install and still give you cleansing and refreshing showers. • Take baths. A partially-filled tub uses less water than all but the shortest showers. • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth. Before brushing, wet your brush and fill a glass for rinsing your mouth. • Turn off the water while shaving. Fill the bottom of the sink with a few inches of water in which to rinse your razor. • Check faucets and pipes for leaks. — Jamie, La Habra, Calif. Jamie: Thanks for the very useful and important water-saving tips. I’d like to add a few of my own. Don’t run water through the hose while washing a car. Use a pail of soapy water to soap down the car. Use the hose only to rinse it off. Don’t use a hose to clean sidewalks and driveways. One thousand gallons of water can run through an outdoor hose in an hour. This is water waste on a large scale. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

When I am no longer able to bake them, I will happily pass the recipe on to a relative to continue the tradition. — Beth in Pennsylvania Dear Abby: I was taught a promise is sacred. Do you really think the in-law should sacrifice her honor over a pancake recipe? They may be delicious, but breaking my word would leave a bitter taste in my mouth. — Promise Keeper in Virginia Dear Abby: A friend gave me a cinnamon bun recipe that had been in his family for as long as anyone could remember. About 15 years ago, his house caught fire and he lost most of his possessions, including that recipe. His siblings had misplaced it and the only person to have it was me. Sometimes it’s good to share something, if only with one other person. That way, treasures aren’t lost forever. — Lisa in Reno Dear Abby: Because the relative had shared the recipe with Craving’s sister-in-law,

technically it was no longer a secret. If it was to be kept a secret, then shouldn’t the relative have told no one? I feel the in-law is free to share the secret with a clear conscience. I’d like to know what it is, too! — Foodie in Tennessee Dear Abby: I think I know the ingredient in the hot cakes recipe. My daughter was coowner of a small restaurant. Everyone begged for the secret of the waffles there. It was bacon grease in the batter. Not healthy — but delicious. — Margaret in Whittier, Calif. Dear Abby: I have been cooking for about 50 years. You can bet your boots the mystery ingredient is beer. That’s how my daddy made them. Use it instead of water for really light pancakes. — Patricia in Texas

Hamartoma is benign growth; hematoma is result of injury Dear Dr. Gott: I spoke with a friend recently who said she was diagnosed with a hamartoma in her chest cavity. I corrected her and said she likely had a hematoma, but she was convinced she heard her doctor correctly. Can you tell me the right word? Dear Reader: Without knowing your friend and her medical condition, I can only assume she is correct. I will outline the differences between the two words. A hamartoma is a benign growth composed of an abnormal mixture of epithelial and mesenchymal elements. It is a part of any tissue that either grows faster or without the usual organization of its neighbor cells. It results from faulty development. Their growth is limited, so they are not actually tumors, even though they are often referred to as such. They are more common in men than women, and most people so diagnosed are smokers. A hematoma, on the other hand, develops from injury such as from a fall or banging one’s arm or leg against a hard object. Blood vessels under the skin tear, blood leaks into the surrounding tissue, and a bruise or contusion results. The lesion will often turn purple, dark red, yellow/green and a variety of colors as the blood is absorbed back into the body. The process can take up to four weeks. There are some that do not reabsorb and need to be removed by a physician. If not removed, they might calcify. In an extremity, they cause pressure to build and cut off circulation. Generally speaking, bruises are not a cause for concern, and a person is generally fully aware of why a hematoma develops. Older adults, on the other hand, have less fat under the skin, and they tend to bruise easily. Aspirin and anticoagulants can cause bruising. Disorders that cause bleeding or a clotting disorder include hemophilia, thrombocytopenia, lupus, liver disease, leukemia and other less common disorders. Because your friend referred to her chest cavity, she likely has a harmless hamartoma. My guess is her physician will continue to monitor it on a periodic basis to ensure it does not change in appearance. Dear Dr. Gott: Would you address the link between aluminum and Alzheimer’s disease? And if there is truly a link, why do deodorants contain it? Thank you. Dear Reader: I wish I could provide a direct answer. There have been a number of books written and a great deal of research done about a possible link, but after numerous years of research, scientists remain unsure what role — if any — aluminum plays in Alzheimer’s disease. In the 1960s and 1970s, researchers

experimented with rabbits exposed to aluminum salts. They did discover severe neurological damage that might be compared with Alzheimer’s in people; however, further review revealed significant differences between what was found in rabbits and what was found in humans. The conclusion? Perhaps they were totally different ailments.
