31-year-old murder conviction overturned Josephine Todd was 79 when killed in botched burglary By Pamela Hitchins phitchins@vicksburgpost.com The 1979 conviction of a Vicksburg man who pleaded guilty to murder was reversed Thursday by the Mississippi Supreme Court

and sent back to Warren County for a decision on whether to retry the 31-year-old case. Justices Robert H. unanimously Jackson agreed that wording in the indictment of Robert H. Jackson, now 56, who has been in prison since

Online www.vicksburgpost.com

June 12, 1979, was improper and therefore his guilty plea was invalid. Jackson was accused in the death of Josephine Thames Todd, who was 79 when she died in a botched burglary Jackson said he committed

in the early morning hours of May 1. The Supreme Court said the wording actually failed to charge Jackson with a crime. “(W)e necessarily concluded that Jackson’s indictment was fatally insufficient to charge him with capital murder or burglary ... because it failed to assert the underlying offense that comprised the burglary,”

APAC Mississippi employees work on the repaving of Clay Street near Adams Street Thursday morning. The paving project, which began last week, extends from Cherry Street to Mission 66 and is being funded through $947,635 in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus funds allocated to

the city last year. APAC was awarded a $637,605.04 bid in December by the Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen to repave Clay Street and Wisconsin Avenue. Willie Davis, foreman, said he hopes to complete Clay Street by next Wednesday and then move on to Wisconsin Avenue.

Park friends looking for $150,000 for markers By Everett Bexley ebexley@vicksburgpost.com The nonprofit Friends of Vicksburg National Military Park and Campaign group is working toward raising $150,000 to replace 47 more historical markers throughout the city and Vicksburg National Military Park that were removed in 1942 as part of the World War II scrap metal drive. Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau directors approved donating the first $10,000 toward that end last week. “The more we can do to help them,

the more we can do to build traffic through the park,” said Bill Seratt, VCVB executive director. “And as we approach the sesquicentennial (of the Civil War), I think it’s important as many of these tablets are replaced as possible.” Friends Executive Director Harry McMillin said the group is aiming to raise $50,000 locally to match a $50,000 federal grant available through the National Park Service. An additional $20,000 has been pledged from a private, anonymous donor, he said, leaving $20,000 yet to be raised to acquire the grant. “If we get this grant, we’ll have

JACKSON — Abortion opponents have enough signatures to put an anti-abortion proposal on next year’s ballot, making Mississippi the second state in the nation where the initiative has reached that point. In 2011, voters will be asked to support a ballot initiative that would give unborn fetuses human rights in the state constitution. A similar proposal goes before Colorado voters this fall. Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said Thursday the petitioners got more than the minimum 89,285 signatures required to get the initiative before voters. Hosemann said he was pleased to make the announcement. The grassroots effort had the support of Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant, who recorded a telephone message that was sent to thousands of Mississippians urging them to sign See Abortion, Page A8.

Collections up, but ‘no turnaround’

$100,000 toward our goal of $150,000, and that will go a long way toward getting these tablets replaced,” McMillin said. The Friends’ latest effort is the second phase of a tablet replacement project that began two years ago. In October 2008, the Friends celebrated securing $142,000 for the park via a federal grant match — which required raising $71,000 locally, $11,000 of which came from the VCVB. That grant has since paid for the replacement of 22 tablets in the park, the preservation of

4 of 6 drug suspects remain jailed; 2 out By Tish Butts tbutts@vicksburgpost.com Hours after six men were jailed in a “successful” drug roundup, another complaint of suspected drug activity was reported and the chief of police said he expects more arrests. “It’s an ongoing battle in most neighborhoods,” Police Chief Walter Armstrong said. “We do have an ongoing investigation as it relates to drug sales.” Armstrong said he believes Thursday’s arrests, which followed resident complaints and weeks of investigation, made a significant impact on drug activity. He said his department receives complaints regularly.

DUTCHMAN’S DREAM Jane Lindsey inspects the roughly 400 tulips she planted for the seventh year in a row outside her home on Nicholas Street. Lindsey said she planted the bulbs in January when the ground was still frozen. Her trick for the continued success, she said, is planting the bulbs between layers of oyster shells to keep voles from eating the bulbs.

This morning, two of the six arrested Thursday had been released on bond, and the other four remained in the Warren County Jail. “At least two or three of those individuals will not get a bond and will remain incarcerated until they go to trial,” said Armstrong. “They will have no chance of selling drugs for quite some time.” Jeffery Brown, 34, 2112 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd,, considered by Vicksburg police as a major supplier on MLK, was being held at the Warren County Jail today without bond, police Lt.

Auctioneer found guilty of fraud with bad checks By Ben Piper The Hattiesburg American HATTIESBURG — A jury in Forrest County found the former vice president of Durham Auctions guilty Thursday on four counts of felony bad checks with the intent to defraud. Jim Durham stood trial for writing more than $225,000 in bad checks for various types of equipment not delivered to multiple customers, including the Warren County Board of Supervisors, according to the Forrest County prosecutors.

A check received in 2008 to sell a surplus motor grader bounced, leading Warren County officials to investigate. Road Manager Richard Winans testified the county had done business with Durham and his father, Don, since the mid-1980s. Millions of dollars of surplus road equipment were sold through the Durhams’ company. Sentencing is set for 9 a.m., April 12 in Forrest County Circuit Court. Durham could face up to 12 years in prison. In closing arguments Thursday, prosecutors pleaded for jurors to see Durham as a

money-obsessed, irresponsible businessman who thought the law didn’t apply to him. “You have an individual who takes enormous risk, runs a business into the ground and then says they are not responsible,” Forrest County Assistant District Attorney DeCarlo Hood said. “The rules don’t apply to them. ... There’s always a victim left holding the bag.” Arthur Lemann, Durham’s defense counsel, said the district attorney’s office never proved intent to defraud. He said Durham had nothing to gain from defrauding custom-

ers who frequented Durham Auctions for years. “You have to decide... it’s all his fault,” he said. “He’s bankrupt, he’s lost everything, but you cannot find from the facts of this case that this man had an intent to defraud anyone.” Hood told the jury a check returned for insufficient funds should be presumed to be fraud under state law. He said hours of testimony regarding bad business practices, overdraft agreements with banks and bankruptcy filings were nothing but smoke and mirrors used by defense counsel to cloud juror’s judgment.

Durham used an escrow account to hold revenues from auctions. The money should have gone straight to the seller, but it was instead used to pay off loans and investors, according to Durham. “He never acknowledges that it wasn’t his money he was spending,” Hood said. “He can’t use their money if he has their money in that account, it should be there ... they aren’t responsible for your bad business decisions.” The auction company and Durham both filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2008, Durham testified.

weekend in Vicksburg Bank account opened to help dog-bite victim This • Tapestry Tour of Homes U.S. 61 South; free; ages A donation account has been opened at Regions Bank for a Warren County toddler who was taken to the hospital after being attacked by the family dog Wednesday night. Jack Gaines, 2-year-old son of Robin Causey and Brad Gaines, remains at University Medical Center, where he was in fair condition this morning, hospital spokesman Peggy Wagner said. The child underwent surgery Thursday afternoon to repair gashes to the left side of his head and face, said an aunt, Sherrie Johnson, who was waiting at the hospital with family members. She said the doctor told the family Jack will need to

have more surgery to repair a muscle in his left eyelid so he can open his eye. “He’s doing OK,” she said. “He’s a happy, precious little boy. It could have been a whole lot worse. It’s just senseless.” The toddler was mauled by the family’s 5-year-old, 70-pound cur dog while he was playing with family members in the yard of their home at 733 Stenson Road. His grandfather, Ira Erwin, pulled the dog off Jack, but he had already received lacerations from the attack. The cause of the attack is still not known. The dog remains at the Vicksburg-Warren Humane Society, and the family plans

to request to have the animal be euthanized, Jacks’ greataunt Cathy Shelton said. Anyone who would like to donate to help with Jack’s medical bills, can visit any Regions Bank and deposit a donation into an account called Jack Gaines and Robin Causey. In Vicksburg, Regions Bank has branches at 4140 Clay St., 825 Crawford St. and 3405 Halls Ferry Road. Donations can also be mailed to Regions Bank Centreville Branch at P.O. Box 369, Centreville, MS 39631. A Facebook page has also been set up for the toddler.

Grogan, 17, 1802 Vicklan St., was arrested in a wooded area near Finney Street at 10:26 a.m. and accused of taking a gold chain with a black cross valued at $150, a gold necklace with a diamond cross valued at $250, a .22-caliber handgun and a Sony DVD player valued at $85, Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said. About 30 minutes earlier, workers at the home told police they saw two teens leave the house and run into a wooded area behind.

Barbour vetoes bill to sell blind school citing lack of lease option JACKSON — Legislation to allow the state to sell the 21-acre site of the old Mississippi School for the Blind has been vetoed by the governor. Gov. Haley Barbour said Thursday the bill failed to include the option to lease the land. Barbour said without authority to lease the property, the bill would have required the sale of the property at a time when commercial property prices are at historic lows. Barbour also says the bill set conditions that would have made a sale difficult.

Doctors get prison time in pill mill case GULFPORT — A federal judge has ordered two Biloxi doctors to prison for prescription-drug violations. U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. sentenced Dr. Richard Trieu on Thursday to eight years in prison for prescribing narcotics outside the scope of professional practice. The judge gave Trieu’s wife, Dr. Victoria Van, a year in prison. The judge ordered the couple taken into custody. The parents of two toddlers lost their medical practice after their arrests in May 2008.

face fines. The proposed ordinance would levy a penalty not less than $25 for first-time offenders and more than $75 for subsequent offenses. Parents and legal custodians of children under age 16 would be responsible for the citation. Mississippi does not have a statewide helmet law.

NEW ALBANY — Sometime in the next couple of weeks, someone will buy the first lawful beer in New Albany in the memory of most people living here. Sales of beer and light wine were approved by city voters Jan. 12, and on March 2 aldermen finalized the ordinance

regulating those sales. Thirty days after the required public notice of the ordinance, unless other complications arise, beer sales should begin on April 15. Mississippi State Tax Commission spokesman Kathy Waterbury said that as of Wednesday five businesses had submitted applications for permits and two others had been returned for additional information.

Families file suit over girls’ ATV deaths JACKSON — The families of two north Mississippi girls killed in a 2008 accident have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the maker of an allterrain vehicle. Melissa and Richard Lee Bates of Southaven and Aundria and Thomas Dilworth of Olive Branch filed the

suit Wednesday in Gwinnett County, Ga., against Yamaha Motor Corp. and Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corp. of America. The lawsuit claims multiple design and engineering flaws contributed to the deaths of the two 11-year-old girls. Emily Bates and Lauren Dilworth were riding a Yamaha Rhino ATV when it flipped.

Free, instant, open links are ‘dangerous’ The Internet behemoth Google announced last Monday that it would stop filtering content for its Chinese-language search Web site in China. The move hoists a glaring spotlight on Beijing’s ongoing desire to manage information and, thus, people and Chinese markets. And, while it looks like a hard stance against government censorship by Chinese authorities, it is not as simple as that. The communist government in Beijing is well known for censoring specific types of content on the Internet. It actively blocks Web sites like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter — three of the world’s most popular information sharing, peer-to-peer sites. In the days leading up to the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, foreign journalists covering the Games reported they were not able to access parts of the Internet. With all eyes on China, which sees the free flow of unfiltered

information as a threat, the country modestly let up on restrictions that summer — but things since have taken a turn for the worse. Google reported its sites had been attacked by hackers in China. They targeted humanrights and political activists inside China, putting them under surveillance and monitoring their activities. On a company blog a Google executive called the effort a “sophisticated cyberattack originating from China.” This was the final straw for Google, which had been compromising its business practices to suit Beijing. It had unwittingly put its customers in harm’s way from the government. Up until last Monday Google had agreed to Chinese government demands to block certain types of Internet content, including political speech. Given the “cyberattack” and ongoing meddling in free speech and digital information flow in China, Google

retaliated by ending its censorship and redirecting searches from its Web site in mainland China, www.google.cn, to its search engine in Hong Kong, which, while part of China, is more tolerant. Google’s attempt to make inroads into China may have been noble with the hope of making the country more open and free to information flow (and, of course, to make a buck), but it was a mistake to compromise free-speech and accede to Chinese authorities in order to do business in the country. Google has blocked search results in other countries, too, including Turkey, Germany and France. The Internet is full of disinformation, incorrect information, looney information, obscene information and scary information. In America, we choose to let people sort it out. Other nations think that’s government’s job.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler

City not leveling with public on water, sewer rates The new mayor, Paul Winfield, has chosen to stay the course of deceit when it comes to the City of Vicksburg’s utilities. What happened to his request for an independent audit of city funds? The biggest lie or deceit is that the State of Mississippi regulates the rates of city utilities and revenue collected from utility sales. The State of Mississippi only regulates water for drinking quality and only regulates sewage through the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality. There is no regulation of rates for municipal-owned utilities or how funds are used. The deceit needs to stop! The second lie or deceit perpetrated on the public is that there’s the runaway subsidy being paid to the city’s utilities (water, gas, sewer and garbage funds). Past and present administrations want the residents to believe in their incompetence in that until now, all have failed to include extra money in the rates

I have copies of the city’s budget reports from the past nine years and they show maintenance revenue along with unexplainable budget reporting inconsistencies.

for maintenance and expansion. And we must also believe that the term maintenance does not include emergency repairs. In government, routine maintenance includes emergency repairs. The truth of the matter is that all the utility funds have maintenance built into their budgets, along with capital expenses and expansion — with the exception of garbage collection services that are contracted out. I see the latest increase in water and sewer rates (The Vicksburg Post,

March 26) as a replacement of the surcharge that was placed on gas bills. I have copies of the city’s budget reports from the past nine years and they show maintenance revenue along with unexplainable budget reporting inconsistencies. One inconsistency is that the water fund revenue reports are constantly higher than the sewer fund, although the sewer rates are higher. Another inconsistency is that the water fund revenue has stayed in the $4 million

range although we have had three major price increases in the years 2000, 2005 and now 2010. Every increase in utilities is supposedly to pay off debt and eliminate subsidizing. The truth is the administrations are using the utility revenue to repay bonds at $4 million-plus annually for a $17 million general bond issue, a $5 million utility bond issue for water wells and meters and a new $16 million general bond issue. The $5 million utility bond issue was combined with the other bonds and used as a vehicle for the administration to use the utilities in repaying the bonds when in actuality, a Corps of Engineers’ grant paid for the water wells entirely, making the $5 million bond not needed. The City of Vicksburg had a $14 million reserve in 1999. The city’s rainy day fund or reserve was accumulated by not doing special projects and stockpiling surplus income from the utilities. In fact, the city

would borrow from the sewer fund during the Mayor Robert Walker administration. The deceptive practices of today’s administrations (current and past) make the city’s budget reports unreliable and a form of propaganda. In 2009, the city board headed by former Mayor Laurence Leyens, stopped publishing the utilities’ revenue amount in the 2009 budget report. Here in 2010, the city board headed by Mayor Winfield removed all city utility matters from the annual budget report. In closing, the past and current administrations are the same or possibly worse. The inconsistency in the utilities’ budget reports and lack of facts in reporting the utilities is evidence of this administration and past administrations’ deceit. •

law from doing so. They can handle many of the details, but when you are going into a proposition as complex as buying or building a new home and you do so without proper representation, you do so at your peril. It is true they may uncover things that will slow the deal down or perhaps kill it, but that is a whole lot better than getting in up to your eyeballs and having to spend a fortune to get extricated. The amount of money spent on competent counsel may be one of the best investments that your daughter will ever make.

WASHINGTON — Drivers will have to pay more for cars and trucks, but they’ll save at the pump under tough new federal rules aimed at boosting mileage, cutting emissions and hastening the next generation of fuel-stingy hybrids and electric cars. The new standards, announced Thursday, call for a 35.5 miles-per-gallon average within six years, up nearly 10 mpg from now. By setting national standards for fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions from tailpipes, the government hopes to squeeze out more miles per gallon whether you buy a tiny Smart fortwo micro car, a rugged Dodge Ram pickup or something in between. The rules will cost consumers an estimated $434 extra per vehicle in the 2012 model year and $926 per vehicle by 2016, the government said. But the heads of the Transportation Department and Environmental Protection Agency said car owners would save more than $3,000 over the lives of their vehicles through better gas mileage. Touting the plan, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS said, “Putting more fuel-efficient cars on the road isn’t just the right thing to do for our environment, it’s also a great way for Americans to save a lot of money at the pump.”

Obama heads to N.C. to talk employment WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is pushing his administration’s plans to create jobs, a crucial campaign issue for Democrats as they look toward November’s midterm elections. Obama planned remarks today at a North Carolina company that has hired new workers and expanded its operations with grants from the economic stimulus program. Obama’s team wants to marry much-needed job creation with the politically sour stimulus, hoping that will help Democrats gain favor with voters after a bruising, yearlong battle with Republicans over health care. Before Obama leaves for Charlotte, the Labor Department was to release March

unemployment figures. White House officials hoped the jobless rate would continue its recent slow slide downward.

Official: New checks set for travelers to U.S. WASHINGTON — Travelers from 14 countries that have been home to terrorists will no longer automatically face extra screening before they fly to the U.S. Beginning this month, anyone traveling to the U.S. will instead be screened based on specific information about potential terrorist threats, a senior Obama administration official said.

A person would be stopped if he or she matches a description, even if officials do not have a suspect’s name, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive security issues. For example, if the U.S. has intelligence about a Nigerian man between the ages of 22 and 32 whom officials believe is a threat or a known terrorist, under the new policy all Nigerian men within that age range will receive extra screening before they are allowed to fly to the U.S. If intelligence later shows that the suspect is not a terrorist, travelers will not be screened against that description.

Continued from Page A1. ing and entering is accomplished, the court ruled. Warren County officials can start over and seek a “properly drawn indictment” against Jackson. He is being held at the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Pearl pending a decision by the state to ask the Supreme Court to reconsider and by District Attorney Ricky Smith whether to reopen the case and present the evidence to a grand jury. With just four weeks until the next grand jury term begins May 3, Smith said it’s possible but not certain a case could be prepared by then. “It’s premature at this point to make a decision,” Smith said today. “We’ll try to find family members and speak with them, and also get in touch with law enforcement to see if we can gather back together all the people involved in the original charge.” Smith said the ruling “after this amount of time” came as a shock. Jackson pleaded guilty as a habitual offender and while incarcerated has filed numerous appeals on his own. In winning the reversal, he was represented by attorney Will Bardwell. Todd’s nephew, Jackson attorney Lee Thames Sr. said today he hopes the DA will “take action to see that justice is done — justice for Mr. Jackson as well as for the state.” Thames stopped short of offering his opinion of what “justice” for Jackson would entail, calling it a “difficult decision” that he would not attempt to second-guess. “He’s been in prison for 30-something years,” Thames said. “It’s up to the state to decide if that’s

Defective indictment “The Grand Jurors of the State of Mississippi, elected, summoned, empaneled, sworn, and charged to inquire in and for the body of Warren County, State of Mississippi, at the term aforesaid, in the name and by the authority of the State of Mississippi, upon their oaths present that ROBERT H. JACKSON, late of the County aforesaid, on or before the 4th day of June, A.D., 1979, with force and arms, in the County aforesaid, and within the jurisdiction of this Court did feloniously, willfully, and of his malice aforethought, kill and murder Josephine

Todd, a human being, with or without the design of the said Robert H. Jackson to affect (sic) the death of the said Josephine Todd, at a time when the said Robert H. Jackson was then engaged in the commission of the crime of Burglary of the dwelling house of the said Josephine Todd, contrary to the provisions of Section 97-3-19(2)(e) of the Mississippi Code of 1972, as amended. [C]ontrary to the statute in such cases made and provided, and against the peace and dignity of the State of Mississippi.”

Josephine Todd • A member of one of Vicksburg’s oldest families, Josephine Thames Todd at the time of her death was the widow of retired U.S. Navy Adm. Carlton Todd, and the sister of retired Warren County Chancellor J.D. Thames, Mrs. Gloria Bottom and Mrs. Nell Wright. • She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.D. Thames Sr. Her father practiced law for many years and was the Warren County District Attorney in the 1920s and 1930s. • Mrs. Todd had two sons, James and Miller, and five grandchildren. • Until moving to the Crawford Arms Apartments, Mrs. Todd lived on Fort Hill Drive next door to one of her sisters. • She was a member of the Church of The Holy Trinity, Episcopal, and was an active Mississippi Episcopal Church Woman. • For many years, she taught high school English, both at private and public schools. From the Vicksburg Evening Post, May 1, 1979. enough.” Todd’s great-nephew is Lee Davis Thames Jr., city attorney for Vicksburg. According to accounts in the Vicksburg Evening Post, Jackson, then 25, confessed to breaking into Todd’s apartment to rob her. When he discovered she was in the home, he tied her up with a belt from a dress and also gagged her.

Todd’s death was ruled by then-coroner L.W. Callaway to have been caused by “hypoxia due to asphyxiation” — smothering. There were no major signs of a struggle, but Todd had scratches and cuts on her face, he said. Then police Chief A.J. Holliday said when investigators found her body, the gag had been pulled down and

the belt was cut loose, but not in time to save her life. In his statement, Jackson said he had restrained and tied Todd, but freed her before fleeing. Mrs. Todd’s body was discovered after some of her personal papers were found outside the apartment building at 1111 Crawford St. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken. Court records showed that Jackson, who had been jailed five times previously after indictments and guilty pleas to burglary charges, had been released from prison about a week before Todd died. A widow, she had moved to the apartments on a dead-end block from her large home on Fort Hill Drive. Jackson was indicted June 4 by the grand jury, and pleaded guilty before Circuit Judge John Ellis a week later. His guilty plea forestalled a possible death penalty, a sentence her nephew said his family opposed. “Killing Jackson wasn’t going to bring Aunt Jo back,” Thames said, adding, “she was a delightful woman,” well-educated, who in addition to many accomplish-

ments had lived in China for a time between the two world wars with her husband, U.S. Navy Admiral Carlton Todd. The Todds had two sons who are both deceased, Thames said, and five surviving grandchildren who live in Maryland, Ohio, Colorado, Texas and Louisiana. Jackson’s first appeals were in 1986 and most recently in 2007. In its ruling, the Supreme Court acknowledged, “This case has a lengthy and confusing procedural history,” due to the number of appeals. The written opinion included discussion of legal procedures as well as jurisdiction and specifics of Mississippi law, amended over the years, with regard to murder charges. “It’s carefully drafted, from a legal standpoint,” said Thames. “I’ve practiced law for 50 years and many members of our family have been devoted to the law and its application. I certainly don’t criticize the court for its carefully crafted opinion.” He said it clearly shows that due process violations are treated very seriously by the court. Jackson is the second convicted 1970s-era murder defendant from Warren County to be facing release in recent weeks. Arthur Lee Stevenson, who stabbed to death Warren County jailer A.J. “Holly” Koerper in 1974, was granted parole in February by the Mississippi Department of Corrections. Jackson was an inmate in the county jail at the time of Koerper’s death and was a witness for the state in Stevenson’s trial. Stevenson will be released after a training period to a relative in Florida.

cocaine and possession of Ecstasy. He had been out on probation following a 2003 sentencing of three years in prison and three years probation for possession of cocaine, Stewart said. On Thursday, investigators recovered crack cocaine with a street value of $200 and Ecstasy valued at about $100, Stewart said. Warren County records show he had been charged with three counts of the sale of cocaine in 1999. “We’ve had quite a problem in the MLK area,” said Stewart. “Hopefully, these arrests will curtail the problem we’ve had and stop others from stepping in their place.” Previously out on bond for aggravated assault, Kevin Dewayne Buck, 24, 20 Water Well Road, was being held without bond on a sale of cocaine charge. He had been accused of shooting Terry Brown, 37, 609 Kings Crossing, with a shotgun on June 22 at 605 Hudson St. Buck is viewed by police as “a significant dealer in the Kings Community,” Stewart said. Robert Jerome Hawkins, 33, 213 Demby Drive, had been a major contributor in the U.S. 61 South and Demby areas, Stewart said. He was being held without bond on a sale of cocaine charge. Before Thursday’s arrest, he had been out on two counts of sale of cocaine. Off U.S. 61 South, Matthew Jared Duke, 26, 7944 Jeff Davis Road, who was charged with two counts of sale of a controlled substance – Xanax and Lorcet — remained in the jail on a $10,000 bond. “Prescription drugs are very commonly overlooked as being abused,” said Stewart. One of two suspects released on bond was John Earl Wash, 27, 1773 MLK, whom Stewart described as another player in the drug scenes in the north Vicksburg neighborhood. Wash posted a $20,000 bond on charges of sale of cocaine and possession of a weapon by a felon. He had been sentenced in 2000 to five years for burglary and in 2006 to one year for possession of a weapon by a felon, Armstrong said. The second man to bond out Thursday was Michael Porter, 18, 4223 N. Frontage Road, who was charged with possession of anabolic steroids. “It’s illegal to possess them without a prescription,” said Stewart. Porter was released on a $2,500 bond.

47 statues and the refurbishment of multiple monuments and memorials. Phase two of the project aims to replace 15 tablets in the park and 32 throughout the city. McMillin said VNMP Superintendent Michael Madell is proceeding with the grant application to the NPS, and added the local matching funds will have to be raised by September. “If you can do anything to improve the park and visitors’ experiences, then you are also improving our town,” said McMillin. “That’s the whole purpose of the Friends — to enhance Vicksburg.” McMillin said the Friends group is soliciting additional contributions from groups such as the Civil War Preservation Trust and regional Civil War Round Table groups. Approximately 25 tons of scrap metal was generated from the 150 tablets removed from the city and park in 1942, said McMillin. Another 150 tablets that marked Union and Confederate emplacements during the Civil War have been lost through the years through everything from fallen trees to vandalism. The VNMP has nearly 1,400 tablets, monuments and historical markers in the park and throughout the city. It features the largest national cemetery for those who fought and died in the Civil War, and it is one of 391 parks managed by the National Park Service.

Just a year and change after finding a new football coach, Porters Chapel Academy is looking again. Bill Fleming resigned on Tueseday as head football coach for health reasons after one season. He will stay at PCA as the athletic director and as a teacher. “He came into my office and he felt that he was unable to give the energy level required of the job and

PREP FOOTBaLL stand on his feet,” PCA headmaster Doug Branning said of the reason for Fleming’s resignation. “He didn’t feel Bill that he could Fleming give the job the attention it needed.” That health concern is Fleming’s left knee, which has a partial anterior cruci-

ate ligament tear and has a painful cyst that causes it to swell up and limit his mobility, Fleming said. “I thought the kids deserved more than I could give them,” Fleming said. “I just wanted to do what was best for the kids and when I can’t give my best, it isn’t fair to them.” Fleming replaced the retired Randy Wright and led the Eagles to a 4-9 record and a first-round playoff loss to Sylva-Bay last season. The job is already adver-

tised on the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools Web site and Branning said that he has already received a few resumés. “We’re not going to put a timetable on this,” Branning said. “We’re going to go through the applications and go from there.” The job is an attractive one considering PCA’s winning tradition. The Eagles are losing just five players off last year’s team and will be returning four of their five offensive

SIdELINES NCAA to expand tourney to 96 teams INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA appears to be on the verge of expanding the men’s basketball tournament to 96 teams. Insisting that nothing has been decided, NCAA vice president Greg Shaheen nonetheless outlined a detailed plan Thursday that included the logistics and timing of a 96-team tournament, how much time off the players would have and even revenue distribution. Shaheen said the NCAA looked at keeping the current 65-team field and expanding to 68 or 80 teams, but decided the bigger bracket was best fit logistically and financially. It would be played during the same time frame as the current three-week tournament and include firstround byes for 32 teams. Although the plan still needs to be approved by the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee and passed on to the board of directors, most of the details already seem to be in place. The men’s tournament last expanded in 2001, adding one team to the 64-team field that was set in 1985.

Fleming will participate actively with Branning in the search for the new coach and he believes one quality is a must. “We want someone who is going to be wide-open, get after it and get these kids fired up and in shape,” Fleming said. “I think we’ve got a great core coming back and I feel that hiring the right guy will be like throwing gasoline on a fire.”

Flashes get swept away By Steve Wilson swilson@vicksburgpost.com If an uninitiated observer was watching Thursday’s game between St. Aloysius and Cathedral, they’d assume that Cathedral was the defending Class 1A champion. The Green Wave (12-0, 4-0) showed some swagger as they swept the season series with their archrivals with a rousing 12-0 decision that clinched the Division 7-1A title. St. Al (11-2, 4-2) dropped its second game in a row in harrowing fashion, looking nothing like the defending Class 1A champions that were undefeated just a week ago. Ace pitcher Stephen Evans gave up two home runs, eight hits and nine runs. The defense was more porous than a piece of pumice, with six errors, two passed balls and countless

RAYMOND — Vicksburg got off to a good start against Clinton lefthander Andrew Gunn but couldn’t finish in the latter innings and left Hinds Community College’s Joe Moss Field with a 6-3 loss. The defeat left the Gators (9-8, 1-2 Division 4-6A) with a split with the Arrows (7-9, 1-3) in the season series with one game remaining in two weeks. For Clinton, the game was a mustwin because a loss would

Chasity Hearn continued her torrid streak at the plate, as she went 2-for-3 with an over-the-fence home run to lead Warren Central to a 8-1 victory over archrival Vicksburg. Hearn is hitting a robust .349 and the bomb was her Chelsea second of the Worley season. Sydnei Smith and Chelsea Worley added two hits apiece for WC (10-3, 4-0), which has wrapped up first-place in the division. Worley (7-5) earned the win in the circle, going four solid innings with six strikeouts.

PREP BaSEBaLL have given the Arrows two losses to both Vicksburg and division-leading Warren Central. VHS coach Jamie Creel said his team was hurt by missed opportunities. “We let some little things beat us,” Creel said. “The difference was Clinton got their bunts down and we didn’t. We failed to hit behind a runner and, the other time, our guy didn’t even make an attempt at the bunt.” The missed bunt came in

the fourth inning with the Gators trailing 4-3. Taylor Brocato and Jacob Thomas opened the inning with a pair of hits off Gunn. Justin Pettway could not advance the runners and struck out. Gunn then got a lineout double play to end the threat. In the Gator fifth, Clyde Kendrick reached on an error and stole second, but could not advance as Gunn retired the next three Gators he faced, two by strikeout. Gunn retired nine of the last 10 he faced and more than made up for his

tough start when he spotted the Gators two runs off three hits in the first inning. “Andrew is a real savvy pitcher. When we play defense behind him, we’re pretty good,” Clinton coach Eddie Lofton said. Creel was disappointed that his charges couldn’t do anything after the first against Gunn. “We got to him, we just hit some balls at them and then we didn’t execute,” Creel said. Brocato led the Gators See VHS, Page B3.

The fourth annual Beverly O’Neal Tennis Tournament gets underway today at the Halls Ferry Tennis Courts. The city wide tournament is held in honor of the longtime tennis instructor who died while playing in 2005. Despite the Easter weekend holiday, tournament director Rick Shields say it was important that the tournament keep its first weekend of April date. “We feel the participation level is about what we expect for a holiday weekend,” Shields said. “We’ll begin play on Friday afternoon and then have a full day on Saturday and if need too because of weather, we’ll go into Sunday. “We felt it was more important to keep the tradition of having the tournament on the first weekend in April. That way everyone knows that it is the Beverly O’Neal Tournament.” Shields says the event was able to place six teams in three of the men’s divisions including the Open, Men’s 3.5 and Men’s 4.5.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL Dickey hired as Houston coach HOUSTON — James Dickey has been hired as Houston’s basketball coach, putting him in charge of a program for the first time since he was fired from Texas Tech in 2001. Dickey replaces Tom Penders, who resigned less than two weeks ago after leading the Cougars to their first NCAA tournament berth since 1992. Dickey led the Red Raiders to unprecedented success in his tenure there, the height of which came in 1996 when they went 30-2 and reached the NCAA round of 16. But an NCAA investigation soon followed and the team struggled in the wake of scholarship losses.

Ochoa, who teed off three hours after Pettersen in the opening round of the season’s first major, had chances to tie the Norwegian star but rolled a long putt just right of the hole on No. 17 and then missed a 10-footer on 18.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS April 2 1876 — The first official National League baseball game is played with Boston beating Philadelphia 6-5. 1984 — Georgetown, led by junior center Patrick Ewing and freshman forward Reggie Williams, beats Houston 84-75 to win the NCAA championship in Seattle. Houston becomes the second team to lose in two consecutive finals. 1993 — Cleveland’s Mark Price falls one free throw short of tying an NBA record in a 114-113 loss to Charlotte. Price makes his first six foul shots of the game to give him 77 in a row, but misses the second of a two-shot foul in the fourth quarter, leaving intact Calvin Murphy’s 12-year old record. 1995 — Connecticut caps an unbeaten season by defeating Tennessee 70-64 for the NCAA women’s championship. The Huskies, 35-0, become the winningest basketball team for one season in Division I.

Turner and Boeheim win AP hoops awards INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Ohio State junior swingman Evan Turner is the runaway choice as The Associated Press’ college basketball player of the year. The 6-foot-7 Turner, who averaged 20.3 points, 9.2 rebounds and 5.9 assists, received 54 votes from the 65-member national media panel. Turner missed six games after breaking bones in his back when he fell after a dunk in December. The Buckeyes went .500 without him and then went on to the Big Ten title after he returned. He is the first Ohio State player to win the award since Gary Bradds in 1964. Jerry Lucas of the Buckeyes won it in 1961 and 1962. Kentucky freshman John Wall received nine votes,

ball. That’s embarrassing. We haven’t shown up in 14 innings.” Cathedral Aaron White (3-0) was dominant, holding the powerful St. Al lineup in check. He gave up just four hits with four strikeouts and mixed in a curveball he could throw for strikes with a heavy fastball. “There’s no other feeling like it,” White said. “My curveball was working for me and I was just painting the corners. I’ve never had so much adrenaline out here with all of the fans. I was just on tonight.” The Cathedral offense worked beautifully to support White’s efforts. Tyler Ballard and Caleb Johnson blasted a three-run bomb apiece. Ballard’s blast gave the Green Wave an early 3-0 lead in the top of the first and Johnson’s shot proved to be a mortal wound in a four-run sixth inning. Ballard finished 2-for-4 with four RBIs, while Johnson finished 2-for-4 with a triple in addition to his homer. “If we keep swinging the bats like we’re doing, we’re going to be okay,” Cathedral coach Craig Beesley said. “That was a big series win against St. Al, because

we know how good they are. We’ve got district wrapped up, but our goal is to end up in the playoffs against them in South State.” The closest that St. Al came to denting the scoreboard was in the fourth inning with Cathedral leading 5-0. Blake Haygood led off the frame with a single, moved to second on a wild pitch by White and headed to third on a flyout to center by Ryno Martin-Nez, playing his first game in the field following knee surgery. Stephen Evans singled to left, but Haygood was frozen at third by the relay throw. White struck out Reed Evans and induced a weak grounder by Regan Nosser to quell the threat. Wilkerson promised wholesale changes as he tries to re-ignite the Flashes’ confidence and get them back on track with the heart of their schedule coming up. “We’re about to get after it,” Wilkerson said. “We’re going to pound it in practice. I’m not saying we haven’t been, but we’re fixing to change some things. My hats off to them (Cathedral), at this point in the season, they’re 12 runs better than us.”

Dayton’s London Warren drives past North Carolina’s Larry Drew II Thursday. Dayton won 79-68 in what could be the last NIT as the NCAA field expands to a possible 96 teams.

Dayton wins NIT title NEW YORK (AP) — If this was the end of the NIT, Marcus Johnson and the Dayton Flyers made themselves a lasting memory. Johnson scored 20 points and Dayton denied last year’s national champs another title, beating North Carolina 79-68 Thursday night to win its first NIT crown in 42 years. With officials discussing expanding the NCAA tournament to 96 teams as soon as next year, this could be the final National Invitation Tournament, an event with a rich history that dates to 1938. “Might be a fitting way to end it, for us to win it,” Dayton coach Brian Gregory said. “Our national brand, in a lot of ways, was built right here in Madison Square Garden.” Indeed, the Flyers have been a regular participant in the NIT. This was their 22nd

appearance, second only to St. John’s (27). Dayton also won in 1962 and ’68. NCAA vice president Greg Shaheen said Thursday no decision has been made about the future of the postseason NIT, which is operated independently by the NCAA. Relying on depth, defense and some clutch 3-point shooting, the Flyers answered every North Carolina surge in the second half and handed the Tar Heels one more disheartening loss at the end of a lousy season. After it was over, Dayton players danced at midcourt and then lingered on ladders as they cut down the nets. Forgive them for taking a little extra time to soak it all in. They’re not as accustomed to trophy ceremonies as the powerhouse program they had just beaten.

“This was the hardest year I’ve ever had coaching, there’s no question about that. I didn’t do a very good job with this team,” Tar Heels coach Roy Williams said. “I love this run because it showed the effort and resolve and positive things that happen, and I think that was extremely important to me. So, from that viewpoint, I’m going to appreciate what we learned from it.” Reserve guard Paul Williams added 16 points for No. 3 seed Dayton (25-12), which bounced back from a disappointing regular season of its own. Will Graves shot North Carolina back into the game in the second half, finishing with seven 3-pointers and 25 points for the fourth-seeded Tar Heels (20-17), who started the season hoping for back-toback NCAA titles.

HATTIESBURG — Southern Miss fell behind 10-0 after the first three innings and could not come back in a 19-10 loss Thursday to St. Mary’s at Pete Taylor Park. “The tone of the game was set early and we were not ever able to recover,” USM coach Scott Berry said. “It is hard to recover when you give up two grand slams. The only thing you can do if come out tomorrow and get yourself out of this in a new opportunity.” Pitching was once again an issue for the Golden Eagles (14-10) as five different pitchers allowed 19 earned runs on 17 hits. At the plate, the offense scored 11 runs on 12 hits, including three home runs. B.A. Vollmuth led the charge with a 2-for-2 night including a three-run home run. It was his third consecutive game with a home run. Freshman Geoffrey Thomas struggled on the mound in his sixth start of the season, lasting only 21⁄3 innings. He allowed seven runs on five hits. The relievers behind him did not fare much better. Seth Hester allowed three runs in 2⁄3 of an inning, Jeff Stanley gave up four runs in 31⁄3 innings, Matt Warren surrendered four runs in a third of an inning while Josh Jones closed out the game allowing one run in 21⁄3 innings. St. Mary’s (8-13-1) jumped out to an early 3-0 lead with two home runs in the top of the first inning.

with two hits and drove in one, that coming in the first when he singled in Cody Waddell. Lamar Anthony opened the game with a single and later scored on a flyout by Keaton Jones. He then added a run in the third off a RBI grounder by Jones after drawing a walk and then going to third base on a runner interference call to give Vicksburg a 3-2 lead. Clinton answered with two runs in the bottom of the third to grab a 4-3 lead. Benji Barham scored on Blake Gober’s flyout to right and Kyle Washington scored on Alex Gunn’s single to left off Waddell. Gunn struck out six in a complete game effort. Waddell struck out three and took the loss.

WC 13, Greenville 3 Warren Central won its sixth straight and remained unbeaten in Division 4-6A with a run rule win. Derrick White had three hits and drove in three runs off a two-run single and a RBI triple. Beau Wallace had a double and a triple and drove in a run off each for the Vikings (12-7, 5-0 Division 4-6A). Dylan Wooten had three hits, including a double and triple while Colby Key drove in two off two hits. Key also got the win, scattering four hits and striking out three.

Source: Sheen wants to quit sitcom Charlie Sheen is looking at a future without “Two and a Half Men.” According to a person close to the actor, Sheen has told friends that he wants to leave the hit CBS comedy in which he’s starred for seven years. CBS had no comment, spokesman Phil Gonzales said Thursday. An after-hours call to Sheen’s representatives was not immediately returned. “Two and a Half Men,” which also stars Jon Cryer, is the top-rated comedy on TV and a key part of CBS’ Monday night lineup. Last year, CBS Charlie Sheen gave the show a three-year renewal, through the 2011-12 season, but Sheen’s contract is up at the end of the current season. Sheen, 44, has tired of the demands of a weekly show and wants to focus on movies, the person close to him said. Sheen is in the upcoming film “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” a sequel to the 1987 “Wall Street” in which he starred.

Ivanka Trump’s accused stalker freed A self-described celebrity stalker obsessed with Ivanka Trump threatened to kill himself in her jewelry store and “commandeer” her husband’s newspaper in e-mail and Twitter messages to the couple, prosecutors said Thursday. “I won’t just be ignored,” Justin Massler wrote in an August e-mail to the newspaper, The New York Observer, according to a court complaint Ivanka filed at his arraignment Thursday. Trump He added in another message that unless he got an autographed photo, he would commit suicide at The Ivanka Trump Collection boutique to damage its reputation, “or my only other option will be to simply stalk Ivanka Trump in a maniacal manner for this picture by becoming nothing other than a deranged celebrity stalker,” according to the court documents. Massler, 27, didn’t enter a plea.

Suspects arrested after returning for car The people who witnessed a robbery attempt at an Oregon convenience store didn’t need to describe the muggers. They just needed to point. The two men accused of trying to rob someone at knifepoint were arrested when they returned to get their car while officers were interviewing witnesses. Medford police Lt. Bob Hansen said a man leaving the store late Tuesday was accosted by two men. One brandished a knife and demanded money. The would-be robbers fled when the man ran back into the store and called police. Hansen said officers were interviewing witnesses in the parking lot when the suspects showed up. Though the men were wearing different clothes, witnesses identified them.

Jackson doctor fights to keep medical license LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Jackson’s doctor is “hanging on by a thread” and must be allowed to continue practicing medicine in order to pay for his defense on a manslaughter charge in the pop star’s death, the physician’s lawyers said in court papers filed Thursday. Responding to a bid by the California attorney general to suspend Dr. Conrad Murray’s medical license pending trial, attorneys Ed Chernoff and Joseph Low said that the effect would be devastating to the doctor who already faces a slew of financial problems. “He is, without fear of overstatement, hanging on by a thread,” the attorneys wrote. “His ability to pay for his own defense depends almost entirely on his ability to continue to treat patients.” Murray, who was working as Jackson’s personal physician, is charged with involuntary

manslaughter in the singer’s death from the anesthetic propofol and other drugs. He has pleaded not guilty. Dr. Conrad Murray is Murray scheduled for a court appearance Monday at which a judge may be assigned to his case and a preliminary hearing date selected. The attorney general’s office said a representative of the Medical Board of California will appear to challenge Murray’s license. Murray has already been told not to use anesthetics. Murray’s lawyers said there is no need to revoke his California license since he does not practice in the state and cautioned that a suspension would have a “domino effect” leading to his inability to practice at his

clinics in Nevada and Texas. “If Dr. Murray is unable to practice medicine in Texas, and especially Nevada, he will likely be faced with the inability to adequately defend himself of the charges facing him in the Superior Court of California,” his lawyers wrote. “The case with which he is charged will require intensive attorney work and fees. In light of the fact that much of his defense will be scientifically based and involves the death of an internationally famous decedent, expenses for his defense will be considerable.” The attorneys also argued that the state is unfairly trying to curtail Murray’s right to a full hearing by the medical board. They said a suspension would affect his ability to pay child support and to pay his employees and would negatively impact the patients he is treating in Nevada and Texas.

Friend says James is ‘broken man,’ wants to save marriage to Bullock LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jesse James is a “a broken man” and is hoping that rehab and some privacy will help him recover and save his marriage to Sandra Bullock, his friend and attorney said. Joe Yanny said that allegations of marital infidelity against James and the ensuing media “feeding frenzy” have ruined the biker businessman’s life. “This whole thing has destroyed Jesse’s entire universe,” Yanny said. “Right now, he’s a broken man.” He said James is still in love with Bullock and hopes the marriage can be saved. James checked into a rehabilitation center after weeks of reports that he cheated on Bullock throughout their marriage. Yanny declined to say what James is being treated for, but said people shouldn’t assume it is for sex addiction. He also wouldn’t rebut specific allegations lodged against the West Coast Choppers owner or say whether there are plans for the couple to get a divorce. “The allegations back and forth about what happened — those are private matters to be resolved between a husband and a wife,” Yanny said. “It’s not appropriate for a public airing.” He said the vast majority of stories about James are untrue. “Jesse is in love with Sandra,”

2003 and were married in 2005. It seemed like an odd pairing — the Hollywood actress often called “America’s Sweetheart” marrying the tattooed biker who designed custom motorcycles and starred in reality shows such as “Monster Garage” and “Jesse James is a Dead Man.”

Sandra Bullock and Jesse James Yanny said. “The single most important thing to Mr. James and the children is that the marriage somehow survive.” James and his camp have said little since a woman told In Touch magazine that she carried on an affair with James while Bullock was shooting the blockbuster hit “The Blind Side.” The film earned Bullock widespread acclaim that culminated with a best actress Oscar. Within days of her win, the cheating allegations broke and Bullock withdrew from the public eye. James released a statement saying he had used “poor judgment” and deserved “everything bad that is coming my way.” Public support for the actress has remained high as more women have stepped forward claiming they had affairs with James in recent years. Bullock and James met in

Court records show Murray had serious financial problems when he signed on in May at $150,000 per month to keep Jackson healthy through a series of comeback shows planned in London. The cardiologist owed at least $780,000 for settlements against his business, outstanding mortgage payments on his house, delinquent student loans, child support and credit cards. He faced near foreclosure on his Las Vegas country club home. In January, he made a payment of $1,003 on a $15,500 child support debt involving a California woman and her 11-yearold son. In another development Thursday, Nevada state medical officials filed a formal complaint against Murray, saying he twice failed to mention delinquent child support payments on applications to renew his medical license.

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: There’s a possibility that you could be far more adventurous than usual in the year ahead, where your new goals or objectives are concerned. It’s OK as long as you are careful and calculate about taking any risks. Aries (March 21-April 19) — The only thing about having a preconceived notion of how another in a particular situation will treat you is having an erroneous reaction to him or her when you first meet. Don’t be your own worst enemy. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Poking your nose in another’s private affairs or finding him or her prying into yours will do nothing but cause trouble. In either case, it is something that can and should be avoided at all costs. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Listen to the advice of others, but before acting on it, judge its worth against your own thinking. Don’t discount your own perceptions or concepts in the process of sorting things out. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Do what is expected of you, and you shouldn’t have to worry about what is going to happen down the line. A failure to take your responsibilities seriously could cause future headaches. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you feel you must take a gamble, do so only on yourself, your abilities or that with which you are personally familiar. If you back someone else, and he or she is a loser, you’ll go down as well. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Be careful to bank only on what is visibly being done, not on someone’s promises or good intentions. If the person you’re banking on doesn’t deliver, you’ll be left holding the bag. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Any unhappiness is likely to come from your own negative exaggeration of seeing events or people to be far worse then they actually are. Think well of life and life will do well by you. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Do your part to be protective of your resources, as well as the resources of others in your charge. If you take an unwarranted chance and you lose, you’ll take everyone down with you. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Be cognizant of the fact that what may serve your best interests might not necessarily serve the interests of an associate. Introducing selfishness into a relationship will lead to a complete collapse. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You can be either a person who is forgiving, or one who holds a grudge. If you choose the latter in the case of someone you’re with today, you’ll end up having a miserable time. Reverse that decision. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You’d be wise to limit your nonessential spending today, when you find yourself with a highroller friend. This person is more than likely to lead you down a one-way street. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Most of today should be good, but your shaky areas have to do with things that pertain to your status, reputation or career. Watch your step when dealing in any one of these areas.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Teens: Many of today’s high-school seniors will be entering their freshman year at colleges and universities in the fall. Many of these schools of higher education will give these students the opportunity to “be on their own” away from the watchful eyes of parents. Parents hope the guidance and love they have given will keep their children out of harm’s way. Most new college and university students will do very well. They will adjust to their new lifestyle and make getting good grades a priority. But some, unfortunately, will become victims to a major college and university problem — drinking. School administrators are extremely concerned about it and do all they can to combat this scourge. In many cases, drinking prevents a student from reaching his or her goal — a quality education. A study by the Task Force on College Drinking points out that the consequences go far beyond that. The study found that drinking by college students contributes to about half a million injuries and 70,000 cases of sexual assault or date rape each year. In a shocking statistic, over 1,400 college students are killed yearly in alcohol-related accidents. Teens, you will be tempted and encouraged to “join in” and have a “cold one.” A simple, “Thanks, but no thanks,” will help eliminate a lot of possible future grief! Dr. Wallace: I have noticed that possession of marijuana is considered a misdemeanor in some locations. Some even think that marijuana will become legal and will be taxed by the government as a revenue source. What is the legal status of possessing LSD for personal use? — Nameless, Cleveland. Nameless: LSD is in the restricted-drug category. This means it is illegal for anyone to possess it. The penalty for a first offense conviction is up to a $1,000 fine and/or six months in jail. Manufacturing, selling, importing or delivering LSD can result in 10 years imprisonment. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

vent, you can’t improve the situation. The problem is your husband is insecure. Only he can fix that, which would first require his admitting it. Sad to say, he may not even be able to admit it to himself. This is a difficult time to go job-hunting, so I don’t advise it. But in the meantime, please do not make his problem your own. Accept that he has a problem, but don’t allow it to jeopardize your work relationships. Dear Abby: Is it OK to have sex when you’re a guest in someone’s home? I say no, but my husband feels the host knows we’re married so it’s not inappropriate. I think it’s rude and shows a lack of respect for the host. Would you please settle this once and for all? When we stay with friends, we end up fighting during our vacation. — Uncomfortable in Texas

Dear Uncomfortable: For a married couple to make love when they are houseguests isn’t rude or disrespectful, provided the pictures don’t fall off the walls and there are no complaints about noise from the neighbors. However, if the idea makes you uncomfortable and unable to relax and enjoy the intimacy, then you and your husband should vacation in a hotel where you can expect to have more privacy. Dear Abby: How do I stop my shoes from squeaking? I have a pair that I love, but they squeak so badly it drives me crazy. Everyone can hear my shoes when I am walking. Can you help? — Not the Old Soft Shoe Dear N.T.O.S.S.: According to the book “Haley’s Hints,” a way to solve your problem is to pierce the soles of your squeaky shoes four or five times with a darning needle

at the ball of the foot. If that doesn’t do the trick, “place the shoes in a solution of salt water at room temperature, just so the soles are covered. After soaking for 15 minutes, dry them off and place the soles in boiled linseed oil overnight. The next morning, remove the shoes, dry them well and your finicky foot-

Necrotic jaw doesn’t require treatment Dear Dr. Gott: I was diagnosed with dead bone in my jaw in June 2009. It is actually in the large torus palatinus, on the roof of my mouth. My oral surgeon is convinced it was caused by my taking Actonel or Boniva for osteoporosis for seven years. My family physician wasn’t so convinced the Boniva caused this. The first step by the oral surgeon was to take me off Boniva. He said we would only watch the exposed bone for six months, that there was a chance the bone would fall out on its own. When he wanted my family physician’s permission to go off the Boniva and I got it, I learned my physician was not so sure about it. After eight months, the bone has grown down, and some has chipped off. Last week, the oral surgeon pulled an area the size of a lima bean out. The current plan is to continue to watch it in the hope the dead bone comes out completely on its own in the next four months. He told me all along it would be a year before he would consider it safe to do surgery if any of the bone needs to be removed. Half the torus palatinus has effectively dissolved. He indicated we might want to consider removing the other half to prevent bone from dying there. I would like to avoid surgery if I can. I take good care of my teeth, and I am a 62-year-old female who runs, lifts weights, takes calcium and tries to do all the right stuff to prevent further damage to my bones from osteoporosis. What do you think of the idea of removing the other half of the torus palatinus? Dear Reader: The torus palatinus is a benign bony growth known as an exostosis located in the middle of the hard palate in the roof of the mouth. Generally, it doesn’t require treatment unless it becomes so large it interferes with function or dental placement. In fact, the most common reason for surgical removal is that dentures do not fit well. The procedure is relatively simple. I am well aware of the issues of necrotic bone from medications taken to fight osteoporosis. The issue came to light several years ago and even today prevents a great number of women from taking the recommended medications. I can offer my personal opinion but must defer to your oral surgeon regarding surgical removal of the half torus palatinus that remains. If the necrotic (dead) bone ejects on its own, your problems are likely solved. If not, speak with

Dear Abby: My husband, “Hugh,” and I have been married 16 years. We generally have a good relationship, with few arguments. We seldom participate in activities that don’t include each other. Three years ago, I was hired to work in the office of a manufacturing facility. The majority of the workers are men. Although Hugh denies it, I suspect he’s uncomfortable about it. When I participate in company events for employees only, he becomes jealous and rants that it isn’t fair for spouses to be excluded. Once in a while, my co-workers and I go out for drinks after work. When I’m asked to join them, Hugh goes on the offensive, demanding to know all the details. He then calls my cell phone repeatedly until I get home. I’m hurt that he finds me
