Bridge closing today for barge salvage

Barbour wants $77M in cuts

Safety engineers limit traffic after tow scatters on swollen river By Danny Barrett Jr. dbarrett@vicksburgpost.com The Interstate 20 bridge across the Mississippi River was expected to be shut down for at least two hours starting at about noon today as salvage crews attempted to lift a barge that sank near a support pier Wednesday after a 30-barge tow broke apart in the river’s flood-swollen water. “We’ve been in touch with the U.S. Coast Guard, the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the Mississippi Department of Transportation, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and the Louisiana State Police,” Sheriff Martin Pace said of he and Vicksburg Police Chief Walter Armstrong. “Safety engineers don’t need any traffic on the bridge during the salvage.” The closing of the bridge was contingent on salvage operators being able to perform the task today, Pace emphasized. The Louisiana State Police predicted in a news advisory at 11 a.m. the bridge would be closed for two hours. The grain-filled barge was one of the 30 being pushed south on the river by the Kay A. Eckstein at about 2:25 p.m. when a line of barges struck pier 3 of the old U.S. 80 bridge. The tow scattered and two of the barges hit the Interstate 20 bridge, where one was hemmed against a support pier by swift current for two hours before it broke apart and sank. A second barge that sank near Baxter Wilson Steam Electric Generating Plant was recovered after nightfall. Wednesday’s strike was the second in four days at the bridges. Early Sunday, a 25-barge tow headed north and pushed by the Joshua David Esper hit pier 5 on the older bridge, causing surface damage and prompting a daytime-only limit on river traffic. Paducah, Ky.-based Marquette Transportation Company owns both vessels. No injuries were reported in either strike. About 26 miles of the river south of the bridges were off-limits to barge traffic as investigations into both strikes continued, said Lt. Teresa Hatfield, supervisor of the U.S. Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment in Vicksburg, adding a few barges contained beans and coal. She said 12 southbound tows upriver from Vicksburg and six northbound are on hold while restrictions are in effect. Ergon Marine’s fleet recov-

Six were held together this morning south of the city, near LeTourneau Technologies.

JACKSON — Personal income in Mississippi rose slightly faster than the national average in 2010 — but the state ranked at the bottom of the United States, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis reported Wednesday. Personal income is income received by all people from all sources. That includes pay, dividend income, property and rental income, and government payments. It does not include income taxes. The BEA said that personal income in Mississippi rose 3.1 percent, slightly higher than the 3 percent national figure. But Mississippi’s per-person personal income — $31,186 — was last in the United States and just over three-quarters of the national figure. Just ahead of Mississippi at the bottom of per-person state rankings were Idaho, Utah, West Virginia and Arkansas. The BEA said state personal income growth in 2010 ranged from 0.3 percent in Nevada to 4.2 percent in New Mexico.

Retrial set in death of Ole Miss student OXFORD — A Lafayette County judge has set Oct. 17

Circuit Judge Andrew Howorth will preside over the retrial. The Mississippi Supreme Court last November ordered a new trial for the now 28-year-old Williams. He was convicted in 2007 and sentenced to life in prison. Williams was convicted in the death of Demetria Bracey, an Ole Miss student from Jackson.

NRoute’s accountant submitted his resignation Wednesday night, citing a lack of time for the position he has held since the bus line was opened four years ago. “My time is not working,” Elvin Parker told the Board of Commissioners during its monthly meeting. “I’ve worked extensively with this program. I’ve enjoyed it. I’m leaving you feeling good about it because you have a clean set of books.” Parker, whose company is Parker Tax Service, is the chief financial officer for the City of Port Gibson. He was contracted by NRoute for $15,500 per year to manage its books. His contract initially was for two years, but since he has worked under a continuation clause. “He served the board well,” said board vice president Alvin Taylor, who presided in the absence of president Mark Buys. In December, NRoute overcame a threat of losing funding by the City of Vicksburg and a year of scrutiny over its finances. The city had demanded audits of the agency’s books for 2008 and 2009 before it would release any of its $135,000 allocation. However, in November it released the first monthly installment of $11,500 in order for the agency to make payroll. The two audits, conducted by Jackson-based Banks, Finley, White & Co., showed clean books for each year. The board did not decide when to hire another accountant. In other business, board members said they will advertise for sealed bids for tools to be purchased through a $50,000 allocation from Mississippi Department of Transportation under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Executive Director Evelyn Bumpers said the tools will be handed over to the city’s inventory list. “Since the city services our buses, it was logical to give them the tools,” Bumpers said.

New governor will have 8 appointments to College Board JACKSON (AP) — The terms of eight members of the state College Board will run out during the term of the next governor elected in Mississippi. Higher education leaders said that the appointments will give a sitting governor a rare chance to pick a majority

of the board members, and, if the governor is re-elected in 2015, the governor will fill the remaining four spots on the 12-member board. The College Board is responsible for about 25,000 state employees and nearly 77,000 students. The system’s annual budget is more than $2.6 bil-

lion, including $780 million in state funding. “It’s one of the most important things that the next governor will be able to do,” Mississippi State University President Mark Keenum said of the College Board appointments. “It’s an important responsibility that has an

impact on the focus — the philosophy — of higher education in Mississippi for the long term.” The College Board positions are unpaid aside from per diem and travel expenses, but they are considered to be among the most coveted appointments in the state.

“It has been the most fulfilling professional role that I’ve had in my career,” said Amy Whitten, whose term will expire next year. Board members — all appointed by the governor and confirmed by the state Senate — serve staggered terms. In 2003, Mississippi voters over-

whelmingly passed a constitutional amendment to reduce terms from 12 years to nine. The change was made in increments, creating the unusual turnover ahead. Whitten and three other members appointed by Gov. Ronnie Musgrove in 2000 will exit the board May 2012.

No charges for officers Attempt to revive negotiations fails in Senate in chase of La. fugitives redistricting

By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press

JACKSON — The Mississippi Senate on Wednesday rejected a proposal aimed at jump-starting negotiations over legislative boundaries — an action that came after nearly all of the chamber’s Republican members met privately with Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant. Sen. Hob Bryan, D-Amory, tried a parliamentary maneuver Wednesday that would have allowed the Senate to vote anew on its map of new Senate districts that it and the House had already approved. But Bryan couldn’t win enough votes in the Republican-controlled Senate. Bryan was seeking to end an impasse that began when the Democratic-controlled House approved the Senate’s map for its legislative district boundaries, but the Senate rejected the House’s map for its respective districts. Traditionally, each chamber approves the other’s plan. “The members of the Legislature have an obligation to the 3 million citizens of this state to produce a redistricting plan. I intend to exhaust all efforts,” Bryan said after he pushed a measure that would essentially have allowed the House to

House committee backs 30th minority House district BATON ROUGE (AP) — Against the wishes of House Speaker Jim Tucker, the House’s redistricting committee Wednesday narrowly backed a redesign of the 105 state House districts that would boost minority districts to 30. Tucker, R-Terrytown, proposed a remapping plan that would increase majority black districts from 27 to 29. A sharply divided House and Governmental Affairs Committee voted 10-9 for a proposal offered by its chairman, Rep. Rick Gallot, D-Ruston, to add a new majority black district in Shreveport, increasing the number of minority districts to 30.

make changes that could have led to conference committee negotiations. Before the vote was taken, Bryan and Republican senators met in the lieutenant governor’s office for about 20 minutes. Bryant said he wanted the Democrat to explain his position to them. When questioned about the meeting on the floor, the Republican Bryant said, “I made sure we didn’t have a quorum,” meaning no Senate rules were violated by the meeting. The two chambers are at a

The debate over how many districts should have a majority black population is one of the central disputes in both the House and Senate redistricting efforts. The bodies are in a three-week special session to redesign state political boundary lines to comply with the latest census data. Lawmakers disagree on what constitutes discrimination against black residents, who make up one-third of the state’s population, but don’t hold a third of House and Senate districts.

stalemate on redistricting, the process of redrawing voting maps to reflect changes in the state’s population revealed by the 2010 Census. Those changes include growth in DeSoto County, just south of Memphis, Tenn., and a loss of population in the economicallydepressed Delta region. Rep. George Flaggs, D-Vicksburg, said he wants both chambers to reach a compromise to avoid court action. He urged both leaders to introduce a new resolution. Flaggs and Rep. Ed Blackmon, D-Canton,

watched the Senate action on Wednesday. House Speaker Billy McCoy, D-Rienzi, has said he won’t negotiate with the Senate because it rejected his chamber’s map. The House had passed the Senate’s map for its legislative districts, basically giving the Republicans in that chamber what they wanted. The lieutenant governor said he opposed Bryan’s floor maneuver because it was unnecessary to approve the same Senate map a second time. He said their original plan is still alive at the Capitol. But Democrat Bryan said he wanted to introduce the map again as “a new vehicle because the bill in conference is going nowhere.” Senate approval of a new map would allow the House to make amendments to either its plan or the Senate plan, Bryan said. The stalled talks led the Mississippi NAACP to file a lawsuit last week to block elections this year under Mississippi’s current 122 House districts and 52 Senate districts, which were put in place after the 2000 census. The civil rights group said because of population changes over the past decade, some districts have too many residents and some have too few, violating the constitutional principle of one-person, one-vote. The House Elections Committee has voted to join the lawsuit.

From staff and AP reports MEMPHIS — No charges will be filed against two Memphis police officers in a crash that led to the arrest of two Louisiana prison escapees who are accused of kidnapping a man in Vicksburg and later killing him. Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin on Wednesday commended the officers’ actions. Mayor A.C. Wharton agreed. Darian Pierce and Ricky Wedgeworth were chased into Memphis on March 14 by authorities from Olive Branch, Miss., who spotted them driving a stolen government vehicle. Pierce and Wedgeworth face charges of escape and unau-

thorized use of a vehicle in Louisiana. They are accused of fleeing a police barracks in Zachary, La., on March 4. They are also accused of carjacking Ohio resident David Cupps in Vicksburg on March 7, later killing him and dumping his body outside a motel in Bessemer, Ala. Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said today a Jackson-based federal grand jury is expected to review kidnapping-resulting-in-death charges against Pierce and Wedgeworth in April, possibly issuing a federal indictment that would result in the two being brought to Mississippi for an arraignment and trial in U.S. District Court. They would face the death penalty if convicted.

N.O. hospital, patients reach settlement in Katrina lawsuit NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A major New Orleans hospital and the company that owned it have settled a class action lawsuit in the deaths and injuries of patients who were stranded there during and after Hurricane Katrina. The settlement was reached Wednesday as lawyers were picking a jury to hear the case. The agreement is subject to court approval, which attorney Joe Bruno, who represented

one of the families suing the health providers, said should come in a few weeks. Kurt Blankenship, a lawyer for the defendants, said the parties agreed to keep the terms of the settlement confidential. About 2,000 patients, medical workers and other staff were stranded at Memorial Medical Center — which was owned by Tenet Health Systems — after the 2005 storm.

Administration making adjustments Experience is a hard teacher. Difficulties in trying and repatriating terrorism inmates at Guantanamo Bay has required the Obama administration to revisit its policy of keeping detainees at the facility and placing them before military tribunals there. The order reverses the administration’s January 2009 freeze on new trials by military commission and bows to bipartisan congressional pressure against trying some of the detainees on U.S. soil. Exactly what to do with the 178 remaining detainees has been a problem that has vexed the administration. The process it has created seems sensible. The administration has determined that about 48 of the inmates cannot be tried by either military commissions or civilian courts because

such trials would either compromise U.S. intelligence sources or raise difficult questions about the methods used to obtain that information. Nevertheless, it has determined these inmates remain too dangerous to release. So the administration has created an expanded review process in which the cases of these particular inmates would be examined by officials from the Defense and Justice departments, as well as from various intelligence agencies, to see if more information has come to light. The detainees could contest their status at these reviews. The administration also said it would voluntarily acknowledge and incorporate some passages of international law relating to the treatment of prisoners. That should ease some of the

20 YEARS AGO: 1991

international criticism of the Guantanamo detentions. Federal courts have determined that the United States, for its own protection, has the authority under the laws of war to hold these suspects, subject to some restrictions on how they are treated. It should be remembered that they are considered to be unlawful combatants who have violated the rules of war themselves. The Obama administration came into office vowing to close Guantanamo within a year. Credit the administration with being pragmatic enough to deal with these facts and crafting a set of legal procedures to deal as reasonably as it can with a difficult situation.

Right now, it’s about the safety of nuclear power. The danger of a meltdown at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi reactors is real, but the media made it a “crisis” from the get-go. The New York Times said the crisis had “veered toward catastrophe.” And on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday, co-host Mika Brzezinski opined it might prove “apocalyptic,” which is to say, worldending. In California, alarmed people have started stocking up on potassium iodide to guard against radioactivity-induced cancer even though 5,000 miles of ocean separate them from Japan. The real threat here is that nuclear-phobia will take hold in the United States as happened following the partial meltdown and radioactive release at Three Mile Island in 1979, resulting in no new nuclear plant construction for 30 years. As Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., said in a speech last week, “today 104 civilian reactors produce 20 percent of America’s electricity and 70 percent of our clean electricity.

America needs a do-it-all energy policy, and if nuclear isn’t part of it, we will be under-powered.

KONDRACKE

“Without nuclear power, it is hard to imagine how the United States, which uses up 25 percent of all the energy in the world, could produce enough cheap, reliable clean energy to keep our economy going and keep our jobs from going overseas.” The good news is that the Obama administration is not running away from its support of loan guarantees for new nuclear facilities, and nuclear power has significant Republican support. It also has been gaining public support, with 62 percent of U.S. adults favoring nuclear power in a 2010 Gallup poll. New polls, postJapan, should appear shortly. But opponents of nuclear power are seizing on the disaster in Japan — caused by a gigantic tsunami triggered by the fourth-most-pow-

erful earthquake in recorded history — to stop nuclear power in its tracks. That would compound the lack of a coherent U.S. energy policy that has resulted from polarized U.S. politics. Republicans (and some Democrats) are determined to maintain fossil fuels — oil, natural gas and coal — as the mainstays of U.S. energy for as long as possible. They pooh-pooh evidence that fossil fuels cause global climate change and are trying to defund conservation and alternative energy programs. Meantime, most Democrats (but hardly any Republicans) think the world is menaced by global warming and are determined to close down the carbon economy and

substitute wind, solar and other “renewables” for oil, gas and coal. The public is confused — and divided — about what to think. According to a March Gallup poll, 60 percent favor increasing offshore drilling for oil (83 percent of Republicans, 40 percent of Democrats) while a whopping 83 percent say Congress should pass an energy bill that provides incentives for solar and other alternative energy as a top priority. Actually, the public may have it right, given $4-a-gallon gasoline and possible oil disruptions in the Mideast. The fact is that, for the foreseeable future, the U.S. will primarily depend on fossil fuels for its energy, so domestic production should be increased. But longer term, cleaner fuels make sense. Clearly, expansion of nuclear power should be part of the solution. Utilities now find it cheaper to use natural gas as fuel, so government loan guarantees — not direct subsidies — are needed to get plants built. They cost, on average, $6 billion. But once they are built they produce energy at a much cheaper long-run cost than any other fuel. It’s why nuclear accounts for 80 percent of France’s electricity genera-

tion and coal-rich China is building 27 new nuclear reactors. As Alexander said in his Senate speech, “the United States invented nuclear power, but ... of the 65 reactors under construction around the world, only one is in the United States,” part of the Tennessee Valley Authority anchored in his state. He pointed out that “no one has ever died from a nuclear accident at any of our commercial or naval reactors,” including the Three Mile Island incident, which led to vast upgrades in safety oversight. And, he said, while nuclear energy has risks, “it is also important to remember that we do not abandon highway systems because bridges and overpasses collapse during earthquakes. “We cannot stop drilling after a tragic oil spill unless we want to rely more on foreign oil, run up our prices, turn our oil drilling over to a few big companies and all our oil hauling to leaky tankers.” That’s on the mark. America needs a do-it-all energy policy, and if nuclear isn’t part of it, we will be under-powered.

SMART MONEY Q: We have been taking care of my mother for a few years. I have been paying my wife a small amount of money a week out of her Social Security. The r e st I use for rent, food, repairs and pills if she needs them. I also BRUCE take a bit out of her savings, a total of $2,000 a month. I don’t claim anything on my taxes, as I feel it’s very little as to what I take. She has about $100,000 in savings. The lawyer says that she is ahead as long as it’s cheaper than a nursing home. The nursing home is $6,300 a month. If we had put her in there at the beginning, all the money would be gone already, but it’s getting harder to take care of her. Also, my wife would like more money. Right now she gets $100 a week. She would like $400 — which I agreed to. What should I keep track of for tax time? I am a bad record keeper. — B.M., via email A: Right now, you are taking $24,000 from your mother’s

funds. Assuming she is mentally capable, she is allowed to give each of you $13,000 a year, a total of $26,000. So right now it would not be unreasonable to take the position that is what she is doing; therefore, there are no tax implications. That will change in the event that your wife wants to up the amount more than $20,000 a year, plus the additional expenses that you outlined. You should see an accountant. Whether you could justify that money without any tax implications is a matter between you and your accountant. You say that you are a bad record keeper. Well, that’s got to stop. You haven’t indicated whether or not there are other heirs to your mother’s estate who might be contentious about the money you are spending. Your heart’s in the right place. Whether or not your wife is concerned about the funds going some place else is yet another matter. To properly sort it out, you might run this past your attorney to be certain that you are on solid ground. Clearly, one idea is not in contention: You must start keeping decent records. •

Day care owner who left U.S. says not guilty in fatal blaze HOUSTON (AP) — A woman accused of fleeing to Nigeria after a fire killed four children at her Texas home day care center pleaded not guilty to manslaughter and other charges Wednesday, two days after she was returned to the United States. Jessica Tata, 22, is facing 13 state charges related to the Feb. 24 blaze that also injured three children. Her attorney entered the plea during an arraignment hearing in Houston. Tata, who didn’t speak during the court appearance, is being held without bond and could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted of the most serious charges. Authorities believe she left all seven children alone while she went shopping, and the fire was ignited by a stove-top burner that was left on at her Houston home. She caught a flight to Nigeria two days later, as investigators scrambled to convince prosecutors to file charges. Her attorney, Mike DeGeurin, said his client didn’t flee. He said Tata, who was born in the United States but has Nigerian citizenship, met with a judge and two attorneys in Nigeria after she learned of the charges

Jessica Tata leaves a Houston courtroom Wednesday. in Texas, and with the help of her father made arrangements to turn herself in. DeGeurin called the fire a tragic accident and said there was more to the story, but declined to provide details. “This is a terrible, terrible accident,” DeGeurin said after the hearing. “It was not an intentional act.” Prosecutors declined to comment after leaving the courtroom, saying, “We intend to try these cases in the courtroom,

Drop the mental exam, suspect’s lawyers say PHOENIX — Attorneys for the suspect in the Tucson shooting rampage are asking an appeals court to reject a district judge’s order for Jared Lee Loughner to undergo a mental evaluation. The 22-yearold Loughner has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from the Jan. 8 attack that Jared killed six and Loughner wounded 13, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Defense lawyers said in a court filing that he was taken from Tucson to a federal Bureau of Prisons medical facility in Springfield, Mo. Loughner was ordered transferred to have tests to determine if he understands the nature and consequences of the charges he faces and can assist in his defense. Late Tuesday, Loughner’s lawyers asked U.S. District Judge Larry Burns to reconsider his order sending him to Missouri. They also objected to the examination being videotaped and the tapes turned over to the prosecution.

not the media.” Family members of at least two of the victims attended the hearing, including relatives of 16-month-old Elias Castillo. They wore white T-shirts with the toddler’s picture on the front and, written on the back: “Gone but never forgotten. I’ll always love you.” “I need to see the woman who killed my son,” Elias’ mother, Keisha Brown, said before the hearing. “I’m not like her. I’m not a coward.”

Hispanics surpass estimates WASHINGTON (AP) — In a surprising show of growth, Hispanics accounted for more than half of the U.S. population increase over the last decade, exceeding estimates in most states. Pulled by migration to the Sun Belt, America’s population center edged westward on a historic path to leave the Midwest. The Census Bureau today was to release its first set of national-level findings from the 2010 count on race and migration, detailing a decade in which rapid minority growth, aging whites and increased suburbanization were the predominant story lines. Geographers estimate that the nation’s population center will move southwest about 30 miles and be placed in or near the village of Plato in Texas County, Mo. “There is excitement,” said Brad Gentry, 48, of Houston, Mo., who publishes the weekly paper in Texas County, noting that the U.S. population center typically carries symbolic meaning as the nation’s heartland.

Budget Continued from Page A1. them to reduce a compromise budget by $77 million before he’ll approve it. Barbour said the House wants to spend more than $500 million in non-recurring revenue, an amount that includes reserve funds and special funds. “I’ve asked them to reduce that overspending by $77 million. If they comply with my request, spending in FY12 will still be $54 million above their own December number,” Barbour said in a statement, referring to legislative leaders’ vote on a budget recommendation last year. Stringer, D-Montrose, said

Barbour wanted the reductions in mental health and education, including K-12, universities and community colleges. But Davis, R-Hernando, said the governor didn’t specify where the reduction should be made. Stringer said the House and Senate members already have voted to fund K-12 education at $2 billion, the same amount schools are receiving this year. Barbour’s proposal would fund education below the current year’s level, he said. Stringer said he couldn’t get Barbour’s proposal passed in the House. “We were 85 percent through with the budget when Haley Barbour blew in. I can compromise, but I can’t go $77 million. The governor is going to have to give,” Stringer said.

Davis said Barbour wants the compromise figure to be about level with the spending for the current fiscal year. Davis said he was working on the spending plan Wednesday, but wouldn’t say which programs or agencies he would target for reductions. “I’m still using the pencil. I’m not using the pen yet,” Davis said. Legislators said they were planning to work through the weekend on the budget. The $5.5 billion budget blueprint for the coming year includes $4.6 billion of general fund revenue, which comes from a wide array of taxes and fees. About $900 million comes from other sources, including federal stimulus money, lawsuit settlements and financial reserves. Frank A. Yates, executive

director of the Mississippi Association of Educators, urged lawmakers to stand firm on the K-12 budget. Yates said most of the state’s school districts are facing a funding crunch. He said many teachers are earning about $3,000 less than they did last year because of furloughs, reductions in salary supplements and insurance changes. Yates said school teachers receive only $200 a year for classroom supplies because the rest of the money allocated for supplies is diverted elsewhere. “Teachers have to pay for their own supplies,” Yates said Wednesday. Stringer said the public schools couldn’t handle additional cuts. “Hundreds of teachers have been laid off, class sizes have

A9 increased and academic programs have been eliminated over the past three years,” Stringer said in a news release. “Cutting the education budget as Gov. Barbour has proposed is the equivalent of a tax increase ­– it will simply shift the tax burden to local school districts, many of which could be forced to increase property taxes on homes and vehicles just to survive day to day.” Stringer said in the release that House members also voted this year to fund mental health at $254 million, up from the $243 million for the current fiscal year. He said cutting mental health would “force the closing of all mental health crisis centers in Mississippi and leave several hundred state employees without a job.”

Continued from Page A1. An annual stability inspection for 2010 completed by G.E.C. rated the 81-year-old span in “fair-to-very good condition.” While preliminary inspections of the I-20 bridge were made Wednesday afternoon, motorists were detoured for two hours. Today, Engineers with the Louisiana Department of Transportation & Development planned an in-depth inspection of the highway bridge’s E1 support pier, said T. Marshall Hill, District 5 Engineer administrator. A visual inspection of the bridge and analysis of its balance sensors turned up no significant damage, Hill said. The Mississippi River level

at Vicksburg this morning was 42.1 feet, up a half a foot in 24 hours. Forecasters expect the river to crest at Vicksburg’s 43-foot flood stage Tuesday, bringing the third official river flood here in four years. In 2008, stages topped out at 50.9 feet, the highest in Vicksburg in 35 years. Five barge tows struck the U.S. 80 bridge between March 26 and May 3, the first four of them coming in 10 days. In 2009, the bridges survived the river’s spring crest of 47.5 feet without a barge strike, reportedly due to slower currents. The last barge strike was to pier 4 on March 22, 2010, a year and a day prior to Wednesday’s

strike. Drain valves remain shut at three locations on the city’s floodwall. Additional closures to prevent water from the Yazoo Diversion Canal from seeping under the wall aren’t planned by the city Sewer Department unless current crest predictions are changed. Northwest of the city, Chickasaw, Long Lake, Laney Camp and Ziegler roads were closed due to high water. Backwater flooding has inundated farmland along Chickasaw and Long Lake. The Kings Point Ferry is out of service until further notice, and the vessel is docked at the Port of Vicksburg.

Jackson Lane, which deadends into brush in Kings, is expected to take on water when the stage hits 43 feet. Eagle Lake was at 76.46 feet this morning, up six one-hundredths of a foot. The Muddy Bayou Control Structure is open and is expected to bring the lake’s stage up to 76.9 feet over several days. Levels on the river side of the Steele Bayou Water Control Structure on Mississippi 465 stood at 89.8 feet, up three-tenths of a foot. The land side held at 85.4 feet overnight. Crests are forecast for March 30 on the land side near 86 feet and 91 feet on the river side.

Strickland was the son of the late William Floyd Strickland Sr. and Edora Elizabeth Bowers Strickland Bailey. He was a 1945 graduate of Culkin Academy and was a veteran of World War II, serving in the Army. He retired from Sears as a department manager in 1985 with 35 years of service. He served as a scorekeeper with Vicksburg Little League baseball for a number of years and was a member of the Vicksburg Church of Christ. He was preceded in death by a son, Mark Andrew Strickland.

River jolt. He was in his office, on the east end of the bridge. He said the hit creates “a major issue” because support pins at the top of the pier broke with the force of the strike. A preliminary assessment Wednesday night by Baton Rouge-based G.E.C., the bridge’s structural engineering firm, showed damage on three piers to I-bars that hold the superstructure down while trains pass, Smith said. A repair estimate was forthcoming. The broken pins are part of the same support structure on pier 3 where bearings were replaced and other cracks were repaired last year at a cost of $637,754.

JAPAN DISASTER

Arab countries step back Stores rationing goods amid radiation fears from Libya campaign TOKYO (AP) — Some shops across Tokyo began rationing goods — milk, toilet paper, rice and water — as a run on bottled water coupled with delivery disruptions left shelves bare today nearly two weeks after a devastating earthquake and tsunami. The unusual sights of scarcity in one of the world’s richest, most modern capitals came a day after city officials reported that radioactive iodine in Tokyo’s tap water measured more than twice the level considered safe for babies. Radiation has been leaking from a nuclear plant 140 miles northeast of Tokyo since it was slammed by the March 11 quake and engulfed by the ensuing tsunami. Feverish efforts to get the plant’s crucial cooling system back in operation have been beset by explosions, fires and radiation scares. Today, two workers at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant were treated at a hospital after step-

The water seeped over the top of their boots and onto their legs, said Takashi Kurita, spokesman

for plant owner Tokyo Electric Power Co. The two workers likely suffered “beta ray burns,” Tokyo Electric officials said, citing doctors. They tested at radiation levels between 170 to 180

millisieverts, well below the maximum 250 millisieverts allowed for workers, said Fumio Matsuda, a spokesman for the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency.

Stock rise after earnings continue to impress NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks edged higher today on stronger corporate earnings and hopes that the job market may be improving. Electronics retailer Best Buy Co., software company Red Hat Inc. and chip maker Micron Technology Inc. all reported

results that beat expectations. Earnings growth has been strong across U.S. companies, which are benefiting from lower costs and stronger revenue overseas. The government also said fewer people filed for unemployment benefits last week.

The average number of unemployment filings over the last four weeks has dropped to its lowest level since July 2008. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 35 points, or 0.3 percent, to 12,121.The broader Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 4 points, or 0.3 percent, to

Non-Ethanol Head of Yemen’s top tribe Shows Better Results! Some Engines Run Better on Non-Ethanol tells president to step down SANAA, Yemen (AP) — The leader of Yemen’s largest tribe sided today with opponents of the embattled president, calling for Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down immediately and refrain from further violence against protesters. The decision by the widely respected Sheik Sinan Abu Lohoum, 80, was announced in a statement issued from

the United States, where he is receiving medical treatment. It was read to protesters gathered at a central Sanaa square that has become the epicenter of the protests. Members of Abu Lohoum’s family confirmed the authenticity of the statement. Abu Lohoum’s Baqeel tribe is the larger of two that follow the Zaidi offshoot of Shiite Islam.

WASHINGTON (AP) — As America’s NATO allies shoulder a greater share of the mission in Libya, the Arab countries that urged the U.N. Security Council to impose a no-fly zone are missing from the action. Except for the small Persian Gulf nation of Qatar, which is expected to start flying air patrols over Libya by this weekend, no other members of the 22-member Arab League so far have publicly committed to taking an active role. The U.S. has sold many of these countries, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, billions of dollars in sophisticated military gear over the past decade to help counter Iran’s power in the region. In the latest round of attacks, the international coalition struck at leader Moammar Gadhafi’s military sites with jet bombers and more than a dozen Tomahawk cruise missiles, a U.S. defense official said today. Targets late Wednesday and early today included Gadhafi’s air defense missile sites in Tripoli and south of the capital as well as an ammunition bunker south of Misrata and forces south of Benghazi, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not

authorized to speak on the record. Nearly a week into the campaign to prevent Libyan leader GadMoammar hafi’s forces Gadhafi from attacking civilians, the United States increased the pressure on its NATO allies to take command of the campaign, suggesting the U.S. might even step away from its leadership role in a few days, even with the conflict’s outcome in doubt. Officials said there was no absolute deadline to hand over front-line control to other countries, or for an end to all U.S. participation. Still, with the costs of the campaign growing by the day and members of Congress raising complaints over the goals in Libya, the Obama administration wants its allies to take the lead role soon. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, an early skeptic of American military intervention in Libya, said President Barack Obama made clear from the start of the campaign last Saturday that the U.S. would run it for only about a week.

Sidelines Arkansas hires Mike Anderson

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Mike Anderson is returning to Arkansas to become the Razorbacks’ basketball coach, the school confirmed Wednesday night. Anderson leaves Missouri after five seasons to return to the school where he was an assistant to Nolan Richardson for 17 seasons. He replaces John Pelphrey, who was fired on March 13. “Under Mike’s leadership, I am confident the Razorbacks will be successful in the future on and off the court,” Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long said in a statement. Anderson’s departure is certain to anger Missouri fans who just six days earlier were assured by the Tigers’ coach that “I’m excited about what’s taking place at Missouri, and I plan on being at Missouri.” But they had also grown accustomed to previous flirtations — Anderson turned down offers from Georgia in 2009 and Oregon a year later.

Gators aim for Elite Eight

Second-seeded Florida takes on BYU and star guard Jimmer Fredette By David Brandt The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — Just like everyone else in college basketball, Florida is quite familiar with Jimmermania. Jimmer Fredette’s production — 28.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game — is impossible to ignore. If anything, BYU’s senior guard is getting stronger, scoring at least 30 points in six of his last seven games. But second-seeded Florida doesn’t buy that thirdseeded BYU will be a oneman team when they meet in the NCAA Tournament regional semifinals tonight in New Orleans. The Gators know from experience. BYU beat Florida 99-92 in double overtime in a firstround game last season. Fredette scored 37 points, yet what really hurt the Gators was a career-game from reserve guard Michael Loyd Jr., who poured in 26 points. Now with a second chance, Florida’s players say they have plenty of respect for all of the Cougars — even if it’s Fredette who is dominating the highlights. “The game plan isn’t just to stop Jimmer,” the Gators’ Chandler Parsons said. “They’ve got a complete team. We had a taste playing against them last year and now we understand just how good they are. We don’t have to watch film to understand that. They’re strong and they execute.” Florida is almost the antithesis of BYU, with multiple seemingly anonymous options who can hurt opponents during any given game. Four players average at least 11 points and the Gators often use a 10-man

On B3 Alabama advances to the NIT final four. rotation. Parsons, the SEC player of the year, is maybe the best example. The 6-foot-9 senior is averaging 11.4 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists, can step out and hit 3-pointers, is a solid defender and doesn’t make many bad decisions. But he’s nowhere near the superstar that Fredette has become. The 6-foot-2 shooting specialist has a well-deserved reputation as a nearly unstoppable scorer. He’s shooting 45.5 percent from the field and 40.6 from

3-point range despite constant double teams, but has also proven capable at creating for others. He’s an unassuming superstar, with an easy laugh that keeps teammates loose and a surprisingly small ego for such a prolific scorer. “I’ll be a willing passer if they’re going to doubleteam me and try to take away my scoring,” Fredette said. “But if they’re kind of single covering me and I see opportunities to score, that’s what I’ll do.” In BYU’s locker room on Wednesday, Fredette was surrounded by more than 15 reporters while most of the other players sat around eating lunch in relative silence. The other

Cougars are used to the attention Jimmer-mania commands. “He gets all the attention, but deservedly so,” BYU forward Noah Hartsock said. “It’s fun watching him going out there and play. I think it helps our teams because we get a lot of national exposure.” Hartsock certainly expects Fredette’s usual array of offensive production against the Gators, but finding the new Michael Loyd Jr. will be important, too. “It’s vital for our tournament success,” Hartsock said. “Our bench play is crucial for us, especially

By David Brandt The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — Butler’s Matt Howard took a stroll down Bourbon Street on Tuesday night, experiencing a strip of restaurants, bars and hangouts known for lavish parties and excess. The senior forward knew within minutes that it wasn’t his type of place. Too much flash. Too crazy. “It’s not my personality, it’s not what I like to do,” Howard said. “For me, it’s almost unnecessary. I’d rather stay away from that.” Howard, much like the Bulldogs, is more of a stoic, hardworking Midwestern guy. And when eighth-seeded Butler faces fourth-seeded Wisconsin in the NCAA Tournament regional

Division 4-6A title chase promises thrills to the end A good, ole-fashioned pennant race is as much a part of baseball lore as the seventhinning stretch, great nicknames, colorful announcers, dirty-encrusted ball caps, Cracker Jack and “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” Well, there’s a crackerjack (spelled like the original slang term that gave the candied popcorn and peanuts their name) of a pennant race brewing in Division 4-6A. The great ones always have storylines aplenty and this one is no different. Three bitter rivals, Vicksburg, Warren Central and Clinton, are battling for a division title and a home playoff series in the first round of the Class 6A playoffs. Those rivalries between schools separated by a few miles tend to make for some drama. Adding spice to the rivalry was the hiring

of long-time Clinton assistant Cody Zumbro by Vicksburg. In a pennant race, every pitch, every decision and every call is magnified like print through the late Harry Caray’s trademark fishbowl glasses. Clinton, which gutted out a 6-1 victory over Warren Central on Tuesday, took charge in the standings with a one game lead over the defending champion Vikings. Last season, the Arrows were

wracked by injuries and no home field, but won six games in a row to make the playoffs. This year, the injury bug has bitten elsewhere and the Arrows have a place to call home as they sport a 10-3 record, 2-0 in division play. “There isn’t much difference between the three teams, Vicksburg, Warren Central and us,” Clinton coach Eddie Lofton said. “Athletically, cosmetically, we’re all about the same. Our pitching is about the same, we all have good hitters, but it’s just going to come down to who gets the job done on a particular night.” The Arrows will face Vicksburg twice next week, but first, they will face WC again on Friday at home. Second place Warren Central followed up two victories over archrival Vicksburg

with a letdown loss at Lewisburg before Tuesday’s debacle. Starting pitcher Beau Wallace couldn’t get ahead of hitters and his offense did little to back him up, going 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position. The Vikings have little time to ponder what happened, as they turn around and travel to Arrows Field on Friday for another game with big ramifications. “It’s going to be a dogfight,” WC coach Josh Abraham said. “We’re going to Clinton on Friday, expecting to win and we’re going to do what it takes to be champions. Vicksburg has a great team, Clinton is a great team, but we’re a great team and we’re defending division champions and we’re going to work to get back to it.” Vicksburg is down, but not out, of the race with a

1-2 record in division play. They’ve lost two classic meetings to Warren Central by a combined three runs, one of which came via a controversial call at third base in the second game. The two teams play again at Bazinsky Field on April 5, their final meeting of the season. The biggest key is avoiding nationally-ranked Madison Central in the second round. The division champion won’t likely meet the Jaguars until the North State title series. The division race will likely come down to the last week of the season. But in the meantime, it’s going to be one to watch. •

MLB NCAA grants wavier to Jackson State JACKSON — The NCAA has given Jackson State more time to improve the football team’s academic performance. Other media outlets report documents it obtained through a public records request shows Jackson State will not be banned from postseason play this season and will get a break on scholarship reductions. Earlier reports were the academic performance rate by JSU was below — for a third straight year — what the NCAA required. The Academic Progress Rate is a rolling, four-year figure that tracks academic performance for NCAA athletic programs. The APR is calculated by giving each athlete one point for staying in school and another for remaining eligible. The NCAA says the relief is conditioned on JSU achieving a single year APR of 900 for the 2010-11 academic year.

slide against Spurs

Alabama advances to NIT semifinals Surging Nuggets snap Freshman guard Trevor Releford scored 22 points to lead Alabama to a 79-64 victory over Miami in the quarterfinals of the NIT on Wednesday night. Senior Senario Hillman, playing in his last game in Coleman Coliseum, where Alabama went a school-record 19-0 this season, scored 17 points and set a school record with 175 career steals. Tony Mitchell had 16 points and JaMychal Green added 14 for Alabama (24-11). The Crimson Tide will play Colorado in the semifinals in Madison Square Garden on Tuesday. Green and Mitchell both had nine rebounds for Alabama. Scott Durand had 19 points, Reggie Johnson had 14 points and seven rebounds and DeQuan Jones added 12 points for Miami (21-15). Alabama led by as many as 14 points in the first half, then withstood a Miami rally early in the second before pulling away for the victory. The Crimson Tide took a 17-6 lead and extended it to 24-10 on a layup by Hillman with 11:02 left in the first half. Miami went on a 12-6 run to make it 30-22 when Malcolm Grant made a 3-pointer with 4:23 left. The Crimson Tide responded by scoring six of the next 10 points to lead 36-26 at halftime. “Our advantage was our speed and quickness and that turned out to be very effective,” said Alabama coach Anthony Grant, a Miami native. “I thought we had success attacking them in transition.” The Hurricanes opened the second half with a 15-6 run to pull within 42-41 on a fastbreak layup by Jones with 14:15 to play. Alabama outscored Miami 33-16 to push the lead to 75-57, matching its largest of the game, when Releford made a free throw with 2:09 to go. “Their athleticism took over in the second half,” Miami coach Frank Haith said.

Washington State (22-12) had five players finish in double figures. “I felt like we battled,” Northwestern coach Bill Carmody said. “The game went back and forth, back and forth. At

the end we had a few good looks at a 3, we just didn’t make it happen.” The Cougars will play Wichita State in the semifinals in New York on Tuesday.

Pacers 111, Bobcats 88

The old Nuggets couldn’t beat the San Antonio Spurs. The new-look Nuggets found a way. Wilson Chandler hit a goahead jumper with 29.3 seconds remaining and the Nuggets beat the Spurs for the first time this season, 115-112 on Wednesday night. Denver improved to 11-4 since pulling off the blockbuster deal on Feb. 22 that sent Carmelo Anthony to New York and reshaped the Nuggets’ roster with a bevy of newcomers and altered roles for holdovers. “They’re a little more unpredictable,” said the Spurs’ Manu Ginobili, who missed a game-tying 3-point attempt at the buzzer. “They have a bunch of players that can score and they can go to down the stretch.” The Nuggets snapped a fivegame losing streak to the Spurs, including three previous encounters this season, behind inspired play from the reserves. Al Harrington led Denver with 27 points. Raymond Felton and J.R. Smith each added 18 points. Felton and Chandler, who had eight points, were among the players sent to Denver as part of the Anthony deal. Gary Neal had 25 points for the Spurs, who lead the Western Conference and have already clinched a playoff spot.

Danny Granger scored 33 points and the Indiana Pacers moved three games ahead of Charlotte for eighth place in the Eastern Conference by completing a four-game season sweep.

Heat 100, Pistons 94 Dwyane Wade scored 24 points and Chris Bosh added 23 to help the Miami Heat rally for a win over the Detroit Pistons. LeBron James had 19 points, eight rebounds and seven assists for Miami, which has won six of seven following a five-game losing streak.

Wichita St. 82, Coll. of Charleston 75 Gabe Blair scored 16 points, J.T. Durley added 14, and Wichita State (27-8) clinched a spot in the NIT semifinals at Madison Square Garden by holding off College of Charleston. Charleston (26-11) trailed by 21 midway through the second half but fought back behind Andrew Goudelock, who scored 23 of his 31 points after halftime, including seven 3-pointers.

Aaron Brooks energized a tired, ailing Phoenix Suns team with 25 points and hit a 3-pointer with 54.9 seconds to play to seal a win over Toronto.

Rockets 131, Warriors 112 Kevin Martin scored 34 points, Chuck Hayes got his first career triple-double and Houston won its fifth straight. Hayes had 14 rebounds, 13 points and 11 assists for the Rockets, who remained two games behind Memphis for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Thunder 106, Jazz 94 Russell Westbrook scored 31 points and Kevin Durant added 29 to help Oklahoma City drop depleted Utah to .500 for the first time since Nov. 6.

76ers 105, Hawks 100 Lou Williams scored 17 points, Andre Iguodala and Thaddeus Young each had 16, and Philadelphia rallied with a 25-6 run to open the fourth quarter.

Grizzlies 90, Celtics 87 Marc Gasol had 11 points and 11 rebounds and Zach Randolph added 13 points and eight rebounds as Memphis solidified its hold on the eighth and final playoff spot in the West. The Grizzlies (40-32) are just one-half game behind seventh-place New Orleans.

Kings 97, Bucks 90 Marcus Thornton scored 27 points, Beno Udrih added 25 and Sacramento damaged the Bucks’ fading playoff hopes. Milwaukee (28-42) fell three games behind Indiana for the final spot in the Eastern Conference with 12 left to play.

Magic 111, Knicks 99 Dwight Howard had 33 points and 11 rebounds, and Orlando won its fourth straight.

Phillies pitcher Oswalt OK after shot to head PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) — Knocked to the ground by a line drive to the neck, Roy Oswalt stayed down for nearly a minute. Then, he rose to his feet and walked off the mound on his own. That was a good sign for the Philadelphia Phillies. The team felt even better after X-rays revealed Manny Ramirez’s liner that hit Oswalt behind the right ear left nothing beyond a bruise the team says may not prevent him from making his next scheduled start. “He’s all right. X-rays said he’s all right,” manager Charlie Manuel said Wednesday. “When he got up he was

OK.” The defending NL East champions said the 33-yearold right-hander did not lose consciousness and was not dizzy before leaving in the fourth inning of a 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. The Mississippi native fell to the ground and remained there until Manuel and a trainer reached the mound to check on him. He eventually got up and walked to the visiting clubhouse in the rightfield corner, receiving a standing ovation from some of the Rays, as well as an announced crowd of 6,613. “Fortunately it was not driven in a manner that could

have really caused some damage,” Rays manager Joe Maddon said. “Our guys were very concerned up on the dugout. I liked the fact that our guys were applauding for him as he walked off the field, you never want to see that happen.” Oswalt was taken for X-rays and left the ballpark without meeting with reporters. Manuel agreed with Maddon that the pitcher was lucky the ball was not hit as hard as it could have been. “I knew it hit him on the side of the head, but Manny didn’t really hit the ball hard,” Manuel said. “He hit the ball OK, but he didn’t really crush

it. It hit him (flush), I guess. It didn’t cut him or nothing, though.” Evan Longoria homered leading off the fourth against Oswalt. Ramirez, who had a RBI double in the first, was the next batter. Oswalt, making his fourth spring training appearance, struck out four while allowing three runs and four hits. “He just kind of grinned and said he was all right,” Manuel said, adding that he wasn’t surprised Oswalt was able to get off the ground so quickly. “It’s what you’re supposed to do if you’re not hurting real bad,” Manuel said. “He felt it, and it hurt him, too.”

Golden Eagles bust out the bats vs. Jags From staff reports Southern Miss put on an offensive show — running up a season-high for runs and hits — to defeat South Alabama 15-3 Wednesday night at Pete Taylor Park. After a disappointing 7-2 loss at Louisiana-Monroe on Tuesday, the Golden Eagles (16-4) responded with an 18-hit outburst. “I didn’t think we played well enough to win the game last night and that was disappointing,” Southern Miss coach Scott Berry said. “It’s like this — either losing

bothers you or it doesn’t. I really like the way the guys responded tonight.” Adam Doleac paced the Golden Eagles with three hits and a career-high tying five RBI, while Marc Bourgeois added a 4-for-4 performance. Isaac Rodriguez had three hits and two RBI. The Golden Eagles ripped a season-best seven doubles as Doleac and Bourgeois had two each. Golden Eagles’ starter Boomer Scarborough (1-0) allowed six hits and walked two while striking out six in the win.

William Carey 2, Delta State 1 With the game on the line in the bottom of the eighth inning and the bases loaded, William Carey made the most of the opportunity. The Crusaders (15-10) scored the game-winning run on a slow roller to third by Michael Lindsey to beat Delta State. The Statesmen (15-10) loaded up the bases in the top of the sixth off William Carey starter Daniel Hall, who had scattered one hit in five innings of work. After a

pitching change by the Crusaders, reliever Will Mann hit Michael Vinson with a fastball on the shoulder, bringing Will McGinnis in from third. Javier Ortiz’s RBI single to left brought home Jarred Rogers, who doubled to lead off the inning, from second to tie the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the sixth off DSU reliever Nathan Hardy. With the bases loaded and one out, coach Mike Kinnison called on left-hander Tim Maloney, who quickly coaxed a groundball double play to end the inning and keep the game tied at 1-1.

ncaa tournament

Timing issues plague NCAA tourney Butler By The Associated Press This was a familiar scene during the first week of the NCAA Tournament: Officials huddled around the scorer’s table, looking over replays to determine just how much time should be on the clock. So unnecessary. The NCAA — unlike the NBA, the Olympics, all major conferences and even some high schools — doesn’t use an automatic timing system for its signature event. It’s an odd situation that caught plenty of prominent coaches off guard when told this week that game clocks in the men’s and women’s tournaments are not linked to a well-known device known as Precision Time Systems, which was invented nearly two decades ago by former NBA and college referee Michael Costabile. “To be honest with you, I didn’t even realize that they weren’t using it during the tournament,” said North Carolina’s Roy Williams, whose Tar Heels were involved in the most prominent of several timing issues during the first

week of March Madness. Thad Matta, coach of overall top seed Ohio State, was even more confused. “We use it in the Big Ten, so I’m good with it,” he said Tuesday. “Matter of fact, when we talked about it in the Big Ten meetings, we said, ‘Let’s do what they do in the NCAA Tournament.”’ Actually, the automatic system is widely used during the preseason, regular season and conference tournaments, but ignored by the NCAA for the biggest games of the year. In a sense, it’s like using a modern timing system to determine how fast Usain Bolt runs or Michael Phelps swims until they get to the Olympics, then breaking out the stopwatches to figure out who gets the gold medal. “This is 2011,” said Nelson Keller, who runs the clock merely as a backup for women’s games at North Carolina and the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. “It’s crazy not to use the technology that’s available.” That was never more apparent than last week when sev-

eral games went down to the wire with the clock being kept by a timekeeper sitting courtside instead of being linked to Costabile’s system, which shuts it down automatically when an official blows the whistle. The most disputed game was North Carolina’s 86-83 victory over Washington. The ball went out of bounds off a Tar Heels player with a half-second showing on the clock. Replays showed the ball went out of bounds with at least 1.1 seconds to go. The officials looked at the video and did some frontier justice, determining the time on the board was right when factoring in the lag time between an official blowing his whistle and the timekeeper stopping the clock. If Precision Time had been used, it wouldn’t have been an issue. “Any time you are talking about time on the clock, I think it’s important that you get it right,” Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said. “Whatever you have to do to make sure that you get it right, I think you need to do.”

more Stephen Rogers who emerged with 10 points and three rebounds in just 11 minutes. The added contributions from role players have been especially important since starting forward Brandon Davies was suspended for violating the school’s honor code. But BYU coach Dave Rose said it’s a trend that

started long before the Cougars lost their third-leading scorer. “I believe that it’s one of the strengths of our team that we’ve had guys that have stepped up all year long,” Rose said. “And we’ll need that to happen on Thursday in order to be successful.”

Continued from Page B1. semifinals tonight, there will be a lot of that on the floor at New Orleans Arena. It’s worked for both programs. Wisconsin has become one of the most consistent teams in the country, making its fifth run to the round of 16 in the past 11 seasons. Butler is in the midst of a second straight deep run in March that included a trip to the national championship game last season, where the Bulldogs lost to Duke. “They don’t beat them-

selves so we’re going to have to beat them,” Wisconsin freshman Josh Gasser said. Wisconsin (25-8) is the typical Big Ten team, with a suffocating defense and methodical offense that slowly wears opponents down. That’s how the Badgers were able to slip past Kansas State in the second round with a 70-65 win, despite Jacob Pullen’s 38 points. Jon Leuer led Wisconsin with 19 points in the game, but it was sophomore Mike

Bruesewitz who became the poster child of the Badgers’ success. The 6-foot-6 forward scored 11 points and grabbed six rebounds off the bench, with his bright red, curly hair flying all over the court. After the game, Kansas State coach Frank Martin pulled Bruesewitz aside and asked if he had a brother he could recruit. “He said ‘I almost called a time out a couple times just to kiss you,” Bruesewitz said.

‘Days’ actors help build home in N.O. Actors from “Days of Our Lives,” the soap opera that has been on the air for 45 years, are volunteering with the St. Bernard Project to help rebuild homes for area families still displaced by Hurricane Katrina. On Wednesday, the actors welcomed and provided furniture for a New Orleans family as they moved into a new home. On Thursday, they will help rebuild another home and raise money for its construction. Actors James Reynolds, Kristian Alfonso, Peter Reckell, Joe Mascolo and former cast member Deidre Hall are among the stars on tour promoting the show’s book, “Days of Our Lives 45 Years: A Celebration in Photos.” Since Katrina, the St. Bernard Project has rebuilt homes for more than 350 families with the help of more than 32,000 volunteers.

Elvis again helping raise USS Arizona funds HONOLULU (AP) — Fifty years ago, Elvis Presley helped raise money and directed much-needed attention to the stalled efforts to build the USS Arizona Memorial. The King is now being remembered for his contributions as the historic sites at Pearl Harbor enter a new era. Pacific Historic Parks, in partnership with Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc., will start selling T-shirts Friday for $24.95 to commemorate the iconic crooner’s historic benefit concert at Pearl Harbor’s Bloch Arena on March 25, 1961. Proceeds will support the educational programs at the USS Arizona Memorial and the new $56 million Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. The black T-shirt features an image of the original concert billboard with Presley standing in his gold lame suit and a hangtag replica of the concert ticket. The shirts will be available at the visitor center’s bookstore or online at www.PacificHistoricParks.org through the end of the year. “For us, recognizing this benefit concert is a way of making the public aware of the cultural history of the memorial,” said Daniel Martinez, Pearl Harbor historian for the National Park Service’s World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument. Congress in the late 1950s authorized the construction of the memorial to honor the crewmembers entombed when the USS Arizona was sunk during an aerial attack by the Japanese that plunged the United States into World War II. The Pacific War Memorial Commission was tasked with raising $500,000 to build the USS Arizona Memorial. Ralph Edwards, host of the hit TV series, “This is Your Life,” kicked off the public fundraising efforts on his Dec. 3, 1958, show when he featured Arizona crewmember and Medal of Honor recipient Samuel Fuqua. More than $95,000 was raised. But contributions and attention dwindled over the next couple of years, with less than half of the $500,000 raised. Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker, read about the stalled

Presley, who was already scheduled to be in the islands to film “Blue Hawaii,” agreed to help by performing a benefit concert. It was his last live stage performance for more than eight years. “Both of these celebrities, one that kicked it off and one that came to its aid two years later, are important,” Martinez said. “I think this is the beginning of the influence of celebrities in national campaigns of fundraising in our country. ... It wasn’t just a concert. It was an event that had national attention and media coverage.” On March 25, 1961, the 26-yearold Presley took the stage to an arena packed with 4,000 fren-

Ala. civil rights leader John Cashin dies at 82 MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — John Cashin, a black dentist and Alabama civil rights leader who once unsuccessfully ran for governor against George C. Wallace and saw his political organization make gains at the courthouse level, has died, his daughter said Wednesday. Cashin was 82. Daughter Sheryll Cashin, a law professor at Georgetown University, said her father died Monday of kidney failure in a hospital in Washington, D.C., after a bout of pneumonia. The Huntsville native received almost 15 percent of the statewide vote in 1970 as the gubernatorial nominee of the National Democratic Party of Alabama, a mostly black organization he founded as an alternative to the Alabama Democratic Party, which had used the official slogan “White Supremacy — For the Right” until 1966. Cashin lost badly to Wallace, a segregationist who disavowed his racist views in later years.

A licensed pilot, Cashin would use his airplane to fly over mostly black areas of rural west Alabama to distribute leaflets, she said. Cashin led NDPA until it closed in 1976 and financed much of its activity from his practice and personal savings.

Presley performed 15 songs that night, including “Heartbreak Hotel,” “All Shook Up,” “I Got A Woman,” “I Need Your Love Tonight,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Are You Lonesome Tonight,” and “Swing Down Sweet Chariot.” He ended the show with a rousing performance of “Hound Dog, which included a slide across the stage on his knees. The concert raised about $54,000, and public and private donations poured in following the show, which received heavy publicity across the country. Hawaii’s then-freshman Sen. Daniel Inouye, who today is the most senior member of the

Senate, helped secure the final $150,000 to complete the construction during the fall. “Mr. Presley’s role is significant because it brought renewed interest in finishing the memorial and undoubtedly had an influence on the citizens of the United States and our government,” Martinez said. The USS Arizona Memorial was dedicated the following year on Memorial Day — May 30, 1962. The gleaming, white, open-air structure straddles the Arizona’s sunken hull, where 1,177 lives were lost. In all, some 2,400 sailors, Marines and soldiers were killed in the attack on Dec. 7, 1941. “This is one of many examples we have of Elvis’ desire to use his talent to help and honor others,” Jack Soden, president and CEO of Elvis Presley Enterprises said in a statement. “Especially considering his own military service, we’re certain this one was especially significant to Elvis.” Today, the USS Arizona Memorial, a top visitor attraction in Hawaii, is managed by the National Park Service and includes the newly rebuilt Pearl Harbor Visitor Center.

Social networks put private behavior on public display Dear Abby: “Heartbroken Teacher in Oakland, Calif.” (Jan. 14) did absolutely nothing wrong! He wrote a letter of recommendation based on his knowledge and impression of one of his students. That was all he could and should have done. He wasn’t obligated to do a background check or any kind of research. That is for the future employer to do if he/ she chooses. I also teach, and would have done exactly the same as he did. It is shocking and sad to discover that one’s impression of a student was partially incorrect. Keeping secrets about past wrongdoings is nothing new. But social networking sites make the evidence of such behavior more accessible. — Helen in Lompoc, Calif.

DEAR ABBY ABIGAIL

VAN BUREN

Dear Helen: I agree. And only time will tell how it will be resolved. That letter, from a teacher shocked to learn a respected student had posted inappropriate stories about herself online, generated tons of responses from both here and abroad. Read on: Dear Abby: I am a 25-yearold education student. I don’t have a social networking site, nor do I have any desire to create one.

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Aries (March 21-April 19) — Although the weekend is upon you and a lot of fun things are in the making, keep your priorities in order. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Think twice about volunteering to manage a job for another. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — When negotiating a matter of significance, be as forthright as possible. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Sticking to proven, tested methods is likely to be far more productive than experimenting with something new. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Things aren’t likely to work out too well if you attempt to use your social contacts for personal gain. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If your financial advisers are doing their level best, don’t upset the applecart by thinking you can do better. Inexperience can lead to a great loss. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Although your friends understand and accept your inquisitive nature, you can, at times, push them too far with some probing questions. Lay off, already! Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Even though it might look like you’re getting what you want, if your methods are inconsistent, things can change on a dime. Stay the course. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Complications that could lead you astray are breeding in unexpected places. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Overanalyzing things can erroneously steer you into a negative frame of mind, making your life miserable. Try to keep balanced. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Do not put someone, even unintentionally, in a position where he has to do more for you than is reasonable. Keep things in proper perspective at all times. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Certain important objectives of yours might not be so vital to anybody else, so if you want any help from another, a little salesmanship is in order. Politeness will help.

to see. My father, a computer programmer, taught me that once something is posted on the Internet, it’s there forever, regardless of whether it is deleted or not. When I ask classmates why they use a social networking site, the most common answer is, “To stay in touch with family and friends.” The last time I checked, the telephone was used for that reason. — Kim in Oradell, N.J. Dear Abby: I am tired of living in a world that revolves around social networking sites. As a 20-something, I have friends who don’t think twice about what they post. They’ll tell the world anything — from drug use, sex stories, their latest vandalism to their disgusting underage drunken escapades.

Dear Dr. Gott: I have a question regarding treatment of a 5-year-old who has been diagnosed with allergies to dust mites and mold. The allergist prescribed Flonase nasal spray and Zyrtec when he’s bad. This seems a little extreme, as it is a steroid and the only symptom she presented with was frequent colds. Is there any other treatment? Dear Reader: I cannot, in clear conscience, recommend the use of the steroid Flonase for a child, primarily because the medication can affect his or her growth at such a vulnerable age. Furthermore, pediatric Zyrtec (an antihistamine) studies involving 168 children aged 2 to 11 found side effects to be mild to moderate. Studies involving children aged 6 to 11 given doses between 1.25 to 10 milligrams daily found symptoms of headache

We have good times, but we disagree on the “dancing is sinful” issue, and I do not ever attend any school dances with him. He believes dancing is fun and a great way to exercise. In fact, his church sponsors several teen dances a year. Jeff was terribly upset with me because his church sponsored a spring fling teen dance, but I refused to go, even though it was at his church. My parents are encouraging me to stop seeing Jeff because our religious beliefs are in conflict on some things, but they are leaving this decision completely up to me. — Nameless, Austin, Texas. Nameless: Since it appears the dancing issue will always bring conflict and disagreement, I would advise you to end the relationship and look for someone who shares your religious view. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.
