APAC Mississippi equipment operator Rodrick Davis, right, and the rest of the crew put finishing

touches on a patch of Wisconsin Avenue Wednesday afternoon.

Wisconsin, Clay work coming to end By Steve Sanoski ssanoski@vicksburgpost.com Stimulus-funded paving projects on Clay Street and Wisconsin Avenue are nearing completion with APAC Mississippi crews on track to finish the work before the April 23 contract deadline. “They’ll have to come back and do some permanent striping on the roads, but the bulk of the work is coming to a close,” said Public Works Director Bubba Rainer on Wednesday.

APAC Mississippi is being paid $637,605.04 to mill and repave Clay Street, from Cherry Street to Mission 66, and Wisconsin Avenue, from Interstate 20 to Bazinsky Road. As of Wednesday afternoon, milling and paving of Clay was completed, and the work on Wisconsin was more than half complete. The city dedicated all of its $947,635 allocation in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds to paving. With planning, testing and engineering costs fac-

tored in, Rainer said there will be no stimulus funds left. Meanwhile, Wisconsin Avenue between Bazinsky and Porters Chapel roads remains closed due to ongoing work by the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center on a bridge and access road beneath. That project kicked off in February, and the road is expected to be closed through July. Wisconsin Avenue traffic is being detoured onto Bazinsky Road.

JACKSON — Students at Hinds Community College will be paying more this fall, after trustees voted Wednesday to increase tuition and meal plan costs. College officials say the increases are necessary as the school is serving an unprecedented number of students while seeing its state funding cut. Tuition for full-time students will be $980 per semester, an increase of $150. Part-time students will pay $100 per credit hour, an increase of $15 per credit hour. In contrast, the cost for one academic hour at most of the state universities is about $200. The last time Hinds raised tuition was in 2005. Students living on campus in Raymond and Utica will also see their meal plan increase $150 a semester, to $920 for 19 meals a week. Wednesday’s decision does not affect other community colleges. In January, the Board of Trustees of the State Institutions of Higher Learning approved tuition increases between 4.5 and 9 percent at Mississippi’s eight public universities. College board officials said the increase in university tuitions make up about 36 percent of budget shortfalls predicted for the coming school year. Institutions will address about $116.1 million of the expected $182.5 million shortfall in state appropriations through cuts, efficiencies and enrollment growth. Hinds is the state’s largest community college with about 19,000 students enrolled annually at the main campus in Raymond and branches in Vicksburg, Utica, Pearl and Jackson.

A pair of advisory opinions requested by Warren County from the Attorney General’s Office appear to clear hurdles for purchasing a large boat for rescues on the Mississippi River and an alternative method of enforcing collection of property taxes. In October, supervisors agreed to put up $51,093.75 to match $204,375 from the Mississippi Office of Homeland Security to pay for a boat

and other equipment for search and rescue. Additional money will be needed to pay for a truck big enough to haul the boat, a trailer and storage space. Warren County and the Gulf Coast-based Department of Maritime Resources were awarded the money as part of a previous application by the state. In the letter, supervisors asked whether they had the authority to allocate the money. The opinion letter concluded that no restrictions exist in state purchasing law for purchases made via a disaster

response-specific federal schedule. A boat has not been ordered, though Pace said the boat could wait if the board couldn’t follow through immediately on their intention to match the grant. “I fully understand the financial hardships,” Pace said. “If they make a decision otherwise, I’ll understand.” After initial hesitation on whether purchase, maintenance and operation of such a boat was feasible

Mississippi’s allocations to its eight public universities will decline by more than 25 percent by 2012, with resulting cuts to staffing, course offerings and even academic departments, Commissioner of Higher Education Dr. Hank Bounds predicts. “There won’t be any university that looks the same,” Bounds said Wednesday during an interview in Vicksburg. Overall, including tuition and other income, universities will be spending $1,000 less per year per student. Bounds, who took the post in June after serving as state Superintendent of Education for K-12 schools, said he has been looking at projected costs and revenues through fiscal 2012, “trying to determine what they might look like.” He’s been meeting with presidents and boards of the state’s public universities while poring over meticulous and detailed data. The result, he said, will be maintaining quality but gaining efficiency with utilities and other overhead and doing more with fewer people. Losses are projected to include 1,100 employees, 700 courses, 1,200 to 1,300

Teen charged with growing pot at home A disturbance reported at Porters Chapel Academy Wednesday morning led Vicksburg police on a foot chase with dogs to find 24 marijuana plants being grown at a nearby home. During field day for students in grades seven through 12 at the private school, a Vicksburg teen stood in a wooded area near the school’s football field and yelled “inappropriate comments” to students, head master Doug Branning said. “He was saying some extreme comments and showed a knife,” said Branning. “We called the police.” He said he was not sure if the teen was on the school’s property. When police arrived, the teen fled into the wooded area leading canine units to 3670 Porters Chapel Road, the home of Andrew Gillis, 17, Lt. Bobby Stewart, chief of investigations, said. “After speaking with the

crime & accident suspect, police found 24 marijuana plants growing in some pots on the back patio,” said Stewart. Gillis was charged with manufacturing marijuana, but no charges were filed in reference to the disturbance at the school because he was not on school property, Stewart said. No knife was found. The teen was released from the Warren County Jail on a $2,500 bond.

was hit by a 1999 Ford Contour driven by Glennis Knight, 44, 801 Speed St., Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said. “Apparently, the child was riding the bike, and he (Knight) didn’t see him when he came to the intersection,” said Stewart. Knight was charged with misdemeanors, Stewart said, because, “He was not on the scene when police arrived.” Knight was released from police headquarters on a $308 bond.

reported on Nov. 14, 2008, Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said. His charge was upgraded during his initial appearance in court Wednesday because it was his third offense, and therefore a felony, Stewart said. Hatchett is accused of assaulting his girlfriend at 587 Hall Road, Stewart said. She was not reported injured. Hatchett was being held on a $5,000 bond.

TV reported stolen at Waltersville A television was reported missing in a residential burglary reported in the Waltersville Estates apartments in the 100 block of Kings Drive Wednesday night, Vicksburg police Sgt. Sandra Williams said. At 11:32 p.m., a 32-inch Sanyo TV valued at $579 was reported stolen.

About 1,200 investors in Mississippi lost about $30 million as a result of fraud related to subprime mortgages sold by Morgan Keegan & Co. in a number of states, according to Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann. Restitution will be sought for the investors by Hosemann, acting as administrator of securities in the state, and by counterparts in Alabama, South Carolina and Kentucky, Hosemann said Wednesday when more detailed information was released. They also hope to have the firm’s licenses to do business in the states revoked. A task force of regulators in nine other states assisted the Securities and Exchange Commission in federal complaints against the company. Values of securities backed by subprime mortgages, those sold below the prime lending rate, were fraudulently overstated by the Memphis-based company portfolio manager James C. Kelsoe Jr. and CPA Joseph Thompson Weller, according to the SEC. State regulators accused three others, Brian B. Sullivan, president of and chief investment officer for Morgan Asset Management, which managed the funds, Gary Stringer, director of investments for Morgan Keegan’s Wealth Management Services division and Michele Wood, a compliance officer, of misrepresenting how much the funds were worth and how risky an investment they’d be for those involved, in many cases investors nearing retirement. The particular mutual funds at issue lost about $2 billion between March 31, 2007, and March 31, 2008, affecting about 13,000 customers overall. “If the allegations in the joint notice are found to be accurate by the hearing officers, we and other states involved in the investigation intend to hold these companies responsible,” Hosemann said Wednesday. An administrative law judge will hear arguments in proceedings initiated by the SEC to determine sanctions and financial penalties.

New law sets quicker response for records By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — Opengovernment advocates hope a new law will give people quicker access to most public records in Mississippi. Gov. Haley Barbour signed a bill Wednesday that says, starting July 1, government entities will be required to respond to records requests within seven working days rather than the current 14. For complex requests, the government could notify the person seeking the records that at least 14 working days would be needed. Jeanni Atkins, executive director of the Mississippi Center for Freedom of Information, said Wednesday that with a response time of 14 working days, it often takes three weeks for people to receive even an acknowledgment of their requests for records from city, county or state governments. “We’ve had reports from citizens who tried to get records that they get the run-around,” Atkins said. Democratic Rep. David Norquist of Cleveland sponsored the bill, which also originally sought to limit the costs of copying public records by specifying the lowest-paid staff person who’s qualified to fill a request should do so. That provision was removed. Some news organizations and citizens in the state have received bills for thousands of dollars for records that are compiled by attorneys. Common Cause Mississippi, MCFOI and the Mississippi Press Association were among those pushing for a quicker response time. There was little overt lobbying against the change.

Oil spill covers about one-fifth of La. refuge near river NEW ORLEANS — A crude oil spill covered about one-fifth of a remote national wildlife refuge near the mouth of the Mississippi River on Wednesday, and another 120 square miles in the Gulf of Mexico, the Coast Guard said. No affected birds or animals had been reported, and more than 50 people and 16 vessels were working Wednesday to clean up the spill from a pipeline through the Delta National Wildlife Refuge, Lt. Stephen Nutting said. Nutting said the slick covered 16 square miles of the refuge, which comprises about 76 square miles of marshland between the Mississippi River and Breton Sound and the Gulf of Mexico. A 12-mile-wide slick stretched 10 miles into the Gulf of Mexico, he said. Crews put 5,000 feet of containment boom around the slick and were putting out another 2,000 feet of boom around the environmentally sensitive area near Breton Island, Nutting said. He said skimmer boats had sucked up 600 gallons of oil.

A Berry Brothers General Contractors barge dredging for ExxonMobil U.S. Production Co. in the area notified the Coast Guard about 1 a.m. that oil was spilling into a canal about 10 miles southeast of Venice, according to a news release.

Fired teacher awarded $205,000 JACKSON, Miss. — A Jackson woman who said she was wrongly fired from the Mississippi School for

the Deaf because she is black has been awarded $205,506 by a federal jury. A jury agreed Tuesday that Melissa Ross of Jackson was fired because of her race. The jury did not find that officials at the school had retaliated against Ross. Ross was awarded $40,506 for back pay and benefits and $165,000 for pain and suffering. She had asked for $500,000. Jan Schaefer, a spokesman for the state attorney general’s office, said the state plans to appeal.

La. term limits advance for some, others lose BATON ROUGE — Term limits for statewide elected

officials and school board members were embraced Wednesday by a House committee that rejected such caps on elected service for judges, sheriffs and district attorneys. The House and Governmental Affairs Committee advanced two proposals to limit time in elected office. One would place term limits on Louisiana’s statewide elected officials, who would be electable to three consecutive four-year terms. The other would require elections in each school district for voters to decide whether they want to term limit their local school board members. Those proposals head next to debate in the full House, where dozens of members benefited from a term limit statute that wiped out a majority of House members two years ago.

The floodgates didn’t exactly fly open. Only five more domains were registered that year. The pace has picked up a bit since. Twenty-one million domains were registered over the next 15 years, and 57 million more in the past 10 years. Nearly 22,000 new Web sites are registered every day. People who track these things say there now are more than 200 million Web sites, including dotcoms, dotnets, dotgovs, etc. To put the newness of all this in perspective, consider that Apple didn’t register its dotcom until 1987. It took Microsoft four more years to join the party. But it’s a young phenomenon that made a

lot of people rich and, due to the Internet stock bubble burst, a lot of people less rich. Many of the seemingly ubiquitous and certainly most-visited dotcoms — Google, Yahoo and Facebook — are really only recent variations on the developing theme. It’s a theme that, according to an Information Technology and Innovation Foundation study, shows dotcom domains contributing $400 billion to the world economy annually. By 2020, that amount is expected to more than double. Government’s top-down inclination to force one-size-fits-all “solutions” onto life is nowhere more revealed as foolhardy effort than when it comes to the Internet, which has largely remained government-free. The scary aspect is that we’re told the next big war will be in cyberspace, where Internet-dependent systems will be hacked and crash — bringing economies and societies

to a halt. The government won’t stay out forever. Feds intend to provide high-speed access to everyone in 10 years. While the government’s figuring out how to impose such improvements, the Internet community already will have achieved them. Google, for example, recently announced that it will test ultrahigh-speed broadband networks capable of delivering up to 1 gigabit per second — 100 times faster than today’s top speed. Certainly, there are monumental Internet issues, such as how to protect intellectual property rights and finding new, workable distribution and pricing models. But even in a remote Mississippi classroom, students have access to all the information in the world. Who could have predicted any of this a mere 25 years ago?

Tea Party is next in history’s line to go ‘all-in’ There has been a lot in the news about the so-called Tea Party protesting taxes, particularly taxes used for specific purposes. That is nothing new. England and France ended the Seven Years War, aka, the French and Indian War, with both countries in debt because they financed the war using credit (something governments continually do). England decided to pay its debts by imposing various taxes, including taxation in the American colonies. Notable was the Stamp Tax on various documents. That was only one of many grievances in the colonies. The British government also had the habit of creating monopolies that restricted free trade. Jamaican sugar planters were given a monopoly on the sale of sugar and molasses in England and its colonies, molasses being used in the manufacture of rum in Rhode Island distilleries. The Jamaican prices were considerably higher than the prices at French and Spanish West Indies islands, so largescale smuggling ensued with Americans attempting (often successfully) to run contraband past British Revenue Service cutters. Another monopoly was the grant given to the British East Indies Company for tea. The Boston Tea Party was actually not about taxation. The

fred e.

camfield East Indies Company had imported too much tea for the market and had a surplus that they needed to unload. The British government (in the hip pocket of company interests) decided that the American colonies would be a good place for the excess tea. In modern terms this would be called dumping, i.e., disposing of excess inventory somewhere else at a lower price (prohibited under present day U.S. law). The merchants in Boston already had supplies of tea obtained at a higher price, and opposed the shipment of the excess tea to the American colonial market. That led to the merchants organizing a raiding party that threw the tea into Boston Harbor. The British demanded payment for the tea, which was refused by the citizens of Boston, and the British closed the port and sent military units to enforce the closure. One

thing led to another, and we had the Revolutionary War. That war was also financed using credit. The new federal government agreed to assume the war debts of the individual states, something that mainly benefited financial speculators who had bought seemingly worthless colonial bonds for a nickel on the dollar. The U.S. government found itself in the same position as the British government at the end of the Seven Years War. In order to discharge the debts, the federal government had to impose taxes, one of the new taxes being a tax on the manufacture of whiskey, a thriving business in western Pennsylvania. That led to the Whiskey Revolt of 1794 when the distillers opposed the collection of the tax, and in some instances attacked tax collectors. President George Washington, in his role as commander in chief, put on his uniform and led armed troops to put down the revolt. President Thomas Jefferson was basically against taxation, but realized that taxes were needed for purposes such as building a navy. There were problems with Barbary pirates as well as interference by the British and French in U.S. commerce. Among other events there was the quasi-war with France involving U.S. and French naval ships in the West

Indies. The problems with England led to the hawks in Congress pushing through a declaration of war against England in 1812 over issues that had actually already been resolved at meetings in Europe. Tax protests continued. In 1832, the Legislature in South Carolina passed an act nullifying the tariff acts passed by Congress, and tried to prevent the collection of the tariffs at the Port of Charleston. They objected to the fact that the money was being spent in other parts of the country for purposes not beneficial to South Carolina. Vice President John C. Calhoun warned President Andrew Jackson that events could lead to secession. The matter was finally settled by compromise, but there was a determination that a state could not nullify a federal law. Various grievances continued to simmer under the surface in South Carolina, leading to secession in 1960 and the Civil War. That war was also financed by borrowing. The question at the moment is about paying for social welfare, in particular, health care. There have always been various schools of thought on the matter. Some people at one extreme favor the policies of Count Vlad the Impaler, who invited the poor beggars to a banquet, locked the doors to prevent their escape

and then set fire to the building. At the other extreme, you have people favoring Jacob Rees, who spent his personal fortune on social reform to help the less fortunate. The underlying question has always been what should be paid from private initiatives like those of Jacob Rees, and what should be paid from public funds. History tends to run in cycles. The Tea Party, like the citizens of South Carolina in the 19th century, oppose federal taxes and initiatives that would require federal spending. There are now states that seem to be trying to pass state laws nullifying federal legislation. Apparently people learned nothing from the events in 1832. The Tea Party also doesn’t seem to remember the Bull Moose debacle in 1912 that left the Democrats in control of the government for the next eight years. We will have to see how things shake out. The Tea Party seems to want the Republicans to go “all in,” as they say in Texas Hold ‘Em, and either win big or lose big. It will be interesting to watch events as they develop. •

WASHINGTON (AP) — The era of record-low mortgage rates is over. The average rate on a 30-year loan has jumped from about 5 percent to more than 5.3 percent in just the past week. As mortgages get more expensive, more would-be homeowners are priced out of the market — a threat to the fragile recovery in the housing market. And if you wanted to refinance at a super-low rate, you may have missed your chance. Mortgages under 4 percent are still available, but only for loans that reset in five or seven years, probably to higher rates. Rates are going up because of the improving economy and the end of a government push to make mortgages cheaper. For people putting their homes on the market this spring, rising rates may actually be a good thing. Buyers

Mortgage rates up Over the past week, the average interest rates on 30-year home loans jumped to 5.31 percent from 5.04 percent.

are racing to complete their purchases and lock in something decent before rates go even higher. “We are seeing some panic among potential buyers who have not found houses yet,” said Craig Strent, cofounder of Apex Home Loans

in Bethesda, Md. “They’re saying: Man, I should have found a house three weeks ago or last month when rates are lower.” It’s all about affordability. For every 1 percentage point rise in rates, 300,000 to 400,000 would-be buyers are priced out of the market in a given year, according to the National Association of Realtors. The rule of thumb is that every 1 percentage point increase in mortgage rates reduces a buyer’s purchasing power by about 10 percent. For example, taking out a 30-year mortgage for $300,000 at a rate of 5 percent will cost you about $1,600 a month, not including taxes and insurance. But the same monthly payment at a rate of 6 percent will only get you a loan of $270,000. Good economic news is the first reason rates are rising: U.S. government debt, a safe

haven during the recession, is losing its appeal as investors turn to stocks and riskier corporate bonds. Lower demand for debt means the government has to offer a better interest rate to sell its bonds. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which is closely tracked by mortgage rates, hovered above 4 percent this week, the highest since June, before falling back slightly. The second reason is the Federal Reserve. Last week, the Fed ended its program to push mortgage rates down by buying up mortgage-backed securities. When demand from the central bank was high, rates plummeted to about 4.7 percent for much of last year. And business boomed for mortgage lenders as homeowners raced to refinance out of adjustable-rate mortgages and into fixed loans.

Blooming Azaleas Toyota executive urged automaker to ‘come clean’ & Native Azaleas WASHINGTON — In the days leading up to its massive recall in January, Toyota executives debated when they should inform the public about safety problems with accelerator pedals, prompting one executive to urge the company to “come clean,” according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. Irv Miller, Toyota’s thengroup vice president for environment and public affairs, warned his colleagues in an e-mail on Jan. 16, 2010: “We are not protecting our customers by keeping this quiet. The time to hide on this one is over. We need to come clean.” Five days later, Toyota announced it would recall 2.3 million vehicles to address sticking pedals on popular vehicles such as the Camry and Corolla.

Adviser learned late of Citigroup’s risky bets WASHINGTON — Robert Rubin, a senior adviser to Citigroup Inc. at the time of its deep losses from subprime mortgages, said he learned belatedly that Citi had $43 billion in high-risk securities on its books. Rubin says, “I do not recall knowing before September 2007” that the bank had held onto the investments composed of repackaged mortgage bonds. In November 2007, Citigroup publicly estimated it would lose $8 billion to $11 billion in the fourth quarter that year from those securities. Rubin, a former Treasury secretary, makes the statements in testimony to a panel investigating the roots of the financial crisis. He and other former Citigroup executives have been sharply criticized for allowing heavy investments in high-risk securities.

Stocks fall on concerns of Greece debt default NEW YORK — Stocks fell today on new worries that Greece would default on its debt. Overseas markets tumbled, with many Asian and European indexes down by more than 1 percent. Greek debt troubles have been one of the few factors pulling stocks lower around the world so far in 2010. A disappointing report on initial jobless claims also hurt U.S. stocks. The Labor Department said initial claims for jobless benefits rose unexpectedly last week, jumping 18,000 to a seasonally adjusted 460,000. Economists polled by Thomson Reuters had forecast a drop to 435,000. In midmorning trading, the Dow Jones industrial average fell 41.27, or 0.4 percent, to 10,856.25. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index dropped 6.13, or 0.5 percent, to 1,176.31, while the Nasdaq composite index fell 14.18, or 0.6 percent, to 2,416.98.

Test to warn smokers of cancer WASHINGTON (AP) — Scientists may have found a way to tell which smokers are at highest risk of developing lung cancer: measuring a telltale genetic change inside their windpipes. A test based on the research is being developed in hopes of detecting this deadly cancer earlier, when it’s more treatable. And if the work pans out, the next big question is: Might it even be possible to reverse this genetic chain reaction before it ends in full-blown cancer? The researchers found a tantalizing early hint among a handful of people given an experimental drug. “They’re heading toward lung cancer, and we can identify them with this genomic test,” said Dr. Avrum Spira of Boston University School of Medicine, who led the research published Wednesday in the journal Science Translational Medicine. Lung cancer — which killed nearly 160,000 Americans last year — is the leading cancer killer, and ciga-

rette smoke is by far its main cause. Yet, not all smokers develop lung cancer; Spira cites estimates that 10 to 20 percent will. The risk depends in part on how much people smoke, for how long and how long ago they quit — but there’s no way to predict who will escape it and who will not. Nor is there a good way to detect early-stage tumors. Consequently, most people are diagnosed too late for treatments to do much good. “Even for people who have stopped smoking, there’s a significant risk of cancer down the road, and it would be nice to identify which patients are really at risk,” said Duke University lung cancer specialist Dr. Neal Ready. Rather than focusing on the lung itself, Spira’s team took a different approach. Smoking bathes the entire respiratory tract in toxins. So he hunted for the earliest signs of impending lung cancer upstream, in how different genes are turned on and off inside the upper airway as the body tries to defend itself and those defenses weaken over time.

Continued from Page A1. and pointing out the expense was not budgeted, board President Richard George, joined by others, concluded the opportunity to purchase the vessel outweighed the budget aspects. Specifications call for the all-weather boat, matching those used by the U.S. Coast Guard for ocean and bay patrols and rescues, to be 25 to 30 feet long with 500 horsepower. The second opinion confirmed that sheriff’s offices have no discretion and adhere to state law mandating execution of jeopardy warrants issued by a court. Facing delinquent tax payments, supervisors were alerted to a collection method that can be used as an alternative to the more common tax sales. The statute allows the county to go to court with documents asserting that if a debtor’s taxes are not collected immediately, they may not be paid at all. Pace, who asked to clarify the law, said deputies have served papers to taxpayers deemed delinquent on personal property, to the occasional detri-

ment to the staffing numbers. “What we’ve done is serve the tax notice, and the person has gone to the tax collector’s office and paid,” Pace said, adding an investigator or patrolman could be pulled off usual duties if an individual case gets too involved. Currently, 40 deputies are in the field — 24 uniformed officers, two full-time civil process servers, six investigators, six court bailiffs, two transportation officers. “We just wanted to make sure the process was appropriate,” Pace said. Preliminary figures from the Tax Collector’s Office show $171,741.85 is owed the county in personal property taxes for 2006 through 2008, down about 24 percent since February. Further updates are expected before this month is out, County Administrator John Smith said. Cities, counties and elected officials have the authority to formally ask the Attorney General’s Office legal questions. Responses can shield actions taken in accordance with opinion letters, but do not carry the force of law.

Continued from Page A1. After being abandoned by public schools in 1979, the school and six acres became city property. Several years later, the city moved to have it torn down. That plan was halted by a Landmark designation and the school has had two private owners since, but has not been redeveloped. Championing the Ceres house is developer De Reul, a Missouri native and show horse owner, whose proposal to convert it into a 19th century village with a bedand-breakfast as its hub was

shot down by the commission as inappropriate for an industrial park. She started a petition and reports 3,500 signatures. “Nobody — nobody — has gone as far as I have gone in getting this done,” said Reul, who deemed a $1.8 million estimate to move the house across the interstate as too expensive. “I just don’t want to see the home destroyed.” Reul’s proposal had listed more than 50 names and other entities as “patrons” though few, if any, had supported the effort financially.

Levels of support among a few who said they signed petitions to landmark the house varied. “As a citizen, it’s important to landmark that house,” said Bill Seratt, executive director of the Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau. “I’ve signed a petition — that’s all. The bureau has pledged no money.” Princella Nowell, head of the Mississippi Historical Society, said she coordinated petition efforts in Greenville and supports the idea of preserving the house.

“I’ve done a lot of old houses and there’s a lot of history in that house,” said Doug Kelly of Vicksburgbased Kelly Refrigeration, who helped gather petitions. “It’s the last plantation house on its original home site in Warren County.” Ceres covers 1,290 acres. The largest operating plant there is Tyson Foods, which prepares frozen entrées. A shell building in the park has been mentioned as a possible site for a new Warren County jail.

bear more costs. Over the next two years, average tuition will increase from $4,782 to $5,459, following 12 other tuition hikes approved by the members of the state College Board over the last 14 years. This fall, increases for Mississippi residents will range from 4.5 percent at Mississippi Valley State University to 9 percent at Jackson State University and Delta State University. Tuition for nonresidents will also increase at all universities except University of Southern Mississippi. During more than a decade of tight times, enrollment

and graduation rates have continued to increase. The reason in recent times, Bounds said, is that during a recession many people go back to school. Overall, however, he said the demand for college degrees in the marketplace is increasing. While some students choose community colleges when the cost of attending a university increases, even the two-year colleges are raising fees. Locally, Hinds Community College will raise per-hour tuition from $85 to $100, a per-semester impact of about $200 for a full-time student. Impacts to academic offer-

ings are inevitable, Bounds said, but university officials are also looking at making organizational and operations changes, such as having certain functions — bursars, purchasing and human resources, for example — handled at one school instead of duplicating them at each. “I think we can realize some serious savings by no longer operating as eight individual islands,” he said. Bounds has also ordered energy audits and instituted a “reverse bid” system for finding the cheapest vendor for certain purchases. A trial run buying dorm mattresses

saved the universities $84,000 recently. Replacing a boiler with a more-energy-efficient model at Mississippi University for Women saved an additional $300,000, he said. Bounds said academic offerings can’t be shielded entirely, translating into higher student-teacher ratios. And some students inevitably will find a course not offered when they need it.

Schools Continued from Page A1. sections of courses and, in some universities, complete departments will be eliminated and colleges within universities merged, he said. Universities expecting 8 percent less for this year are dealing with 9.5 percent reduction in state support, Bounds said. At least another 5 percent is forecast for fiscal 2011, and another 10 percent for 2012. Before any significant recovery takes hold in the state in 2012 or later, universities will be dealing with $45 million less in state money than was allocated 12 years before, in 2000. Students and families will

Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl, in a Taliban video

U.S. soldier pleads for release on video WASHINGTON (AP) — The Taliban released a video Wednesday of a man identified as an American soldier captured in Afghanistan last June, showing him pleading for his freedom and to be returned home. In the video, Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl says he wants to return to his family in Idaho and that the war in Afghanistan is not worth the number of lives that have been lost or wasted in prison. It is the first he has been seen since the Taliban released a video of him on Christmas. The seven-minute video of Bergdahl shows him sporting a beard and doing a few push-ups to demonstrate he’s in good physical condition. There was no way to verify when the footage was taken or if he is still alive. Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, an Army spokesman, said he could not confirm the authenticity of the video. Bergdahl disappeared June 30 while based in eastern Afghanistan and is the only known American service-

man in captivity. The Taliban claimed his capture in a video released in mid-July that showed the young soldier appearing downcast and frightened. In the sometimes choppy video issued Wednesday, Bergdahl talks about his love for his family, his friends, motorcycles and sailing. “I’m a prisoner. I want to go home,” he says in the video, made available by Washington-based Site Intelligence Group, which monitors militant Web sites. “This war isn’t worth the waste of human life that has cost both Afghanistan and the U.S. It’s not worth the amount of lives that have been wasted in prisons, Guantanamo Bay, Bagram, all those places where we are keeping prisoners.” At times speaking haltingly, as if holding back emotions, Bergdahl — clad in what appeared to be an Army shirt and fatigues — clasped his hands together and pleaded: “The pain in my heart to see my family again doesn’t get any smaller. Release me.”

MONTCOAL, W.Va. — Rescue crews began working their way by rail car and on foot through a coal mine early today in search of four miners missing since a blast killed 25 colleagues in the worst U.S. mining disaster in more than two decades. Gov. Joe Manchin said crews entered the Upper Big Branch mine, about 30 miles south of Charleston, just before 5 a.m. and hoped to reach the area where they might find the missing miners sometime before noon. “They are advancing,” Manchin said during an early morning news briefing. Rescuers had to wait to enter the mine until crews drilled holes deep into the earth to ventilate lethal carbon monoxide and highly explosive hydrogen as well as methane gas, which has been blamed for the explosion. The air quality was deemed safe enough for four teams of eight members each to go on what officials were still calling a rescue mission. Seven bodies had been brought out Monday and authorities hoped to recover the bodies of 18 others known dead from the mine owned by Massey Energy Co., which has been cited for safety violations.

FBI arrests man for Pelosi threats SAN FRANCISCO — A California man angry about health care reform was due in federal court today after being arrested for allegedly making threatening phone calls to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, including at least one call in which he got through and spoke to her directly, officials said.

on the divisive issue of missile defense. The new treaty, the first of its kind in two decades and nearly a year in the making, signaled a bold new opening in relations between the former Cold War foes. Both leaders hoped for more progress on economic matters and potentially even deeper cuts in their robust nuclear arsenals, while the Russian president still warned of potential pitfalls ahead. The pact will shrink the limit of nuclear warheads to 1,550 per country over seven years. That still allows for mutual destruction several times over. But it is intended to send a strong signal that Russia and the U.S. — which between them own more than 90 percent of the world’s nuclear weapons — are serious about disarmament.

Interim government rules in Kyrgyzstan BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan — An opposition coalition proclaimed a new interim government today in Kyrgyzstan and said it would rule until elections are held in six

months. It urged the president to resign and said there were no immediate plans to change the U.S. lease for a strategic airfield. The new interim defense minister said the armed forces have joined the opposition and will not be used against protesters. China today said it was “deeply concerned” about the violent uprising in its small western neighbor, echoing comments by Russia and the United States. The impoverished Central Asian nation hosts the Manas U.S. military air base, a key facility supporting the war in Afghanistan, and also hosts a Russian military base. Opposition leader Roza Otunbayeva, the former foreign minister, said parliament was dissolved and she would head the interim government. She said the new government controlled four of the seven provinces and called on President Kurmanbek Bakiyev, who has fled the capital of Bishkek, to resign.

Twenty-two-year-old William Huzzie of Orlando, Fla., was pronounced dead at Central Mississippi Medical Center. The cause of death is unknown. According to college officials, Huzzie was not a member of the football team, but had hoped for a walk-on tryout. He was on the field Tuesday running short sprints with the team. Shortly afterward he had trouble breathing and an ambulance was called. On-campus counseling was made available to the football team and other students on campus Tuesday night and Wednesday. Huzzie enrolled at Hinds in January.

ATLANTA — Chipper Jones likes the new look of Atlanta’s bullpen. Questions about Chicago’s bullpen already are starting to irritate Lou Piniella. Jones hit a go-ahead, tworun homer in the eighth inning, setting up Billy Wagner’s first save, and the Braves held off the Cubs 3-2 on Wednesday night. Martin Prado hit a one-out double off left-hander John Grabow (0-1), ending a string of 15 consecutive outs by Braves batters, before Jones connected for his first homer of the season. “You just felt like that was an opportunity to at least get the game tied,” Jones said. “I’m not thinking homer there. I’m thinking get the

BaSEBaLL run in, hit the ball in the gap.” Jones hit a high changeup over the wall in left-center. “I had a lefty coming up behind me, and I didn’t feel he was going to give in and give me a fastball,” Jones said. Cubs relievers have allowed 10 runs, eight earned, in two losses. One bright spot has been Sean Marshall, who struck out two in a perfect seventh inning in relief of Ryan Dempster. Piniella was indignant when asked if Marshall’s role might change. “We’ve played two games,” Piniella said. “We’re not in our 22nd game or our 42nd game, for God’s sake. It was just a tough loss. Let’s leave

it at that.” Peter Moylan (1-0) worked around a hit and a walk during a scoreless eighth and Wagner finished for his first save with the Braves. Alfonso Soriano singled with one out in the ninth but the lefthander responded by striking out pinch-hitter Xavier Nady and Geovany Soto to end the game. “In the past teams still felt like they had a chance and could score on us late,” Jones said, adding Wagner “takes the air out of people’s sails.” Wagner, 38, earned his first save since elbow ligamentreplacement surgery in 2008. “That’s always fun. That’s instant adrenaline,” said Wagner, who signed a oneyear, $7 million deal with Atlanta over the winter.

Els aims for Masters title By Nancy Armour AP national writer AUGUSTA, Ga. — Ernie Els shook hands with fans between holes, and stopped to take a picture with one on his way up the 17th fairway. He even posed with a “Flat Stanley” as he made his way to the putting green. Don’t make too big a deal of it, but the Big Easy is feeling mighty at ease at this Masters. “I don’t want to get too overconfident,” Els said Wednesday at the Par-3 tournament. “But at least I’ve brought a little game here.” That’s a bit of an understatement. The three-time major champion comes to Augusta National playing his best golf in years. He ended a two-year drought at the World Golf Championship at Doral, then became the tour’s only double winner two weeks later with a victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. It was the first time Els had won back-to-back tournaments in seven years. He has four top-10 finishes in his eight PGA Tour starts this year, and has climbed to eighth in the world rankings, up nine spots from where he finished last season.

Millsaps coach visits Vicksburg By Steve Wilson swilson@vicksburgpost.com

ThE ASSoCIATED PrESS

Ernie Els chips out of a bunker on the 10th hole during a practice round at the Masters Wednesday. The Masters starts today at Augusta National.

gOLf “I haven’t been in this kind of form coming in here for many years,” Els said. Not that it’s drawn much notice. Els, Steve Stricker, Anthony Kim — no one is getting anything more

than a cursory glance with Tiger Woods playing his first tournament since the shocking sex scandal that turned the world’s most famous athlete into tabloid fodder. Even defending Masters champion Angel Cabrera was able to walk by a group of report-

ers without being stopped Tuesday. “People are not going to be talking about who’s in form until probably Thursday morning when we start the event,” Els, who didn’t make the cut for the formal pre-tournament interviews, said after his win at Bay Hill.

It was a night of firsts at the St. Aloysius Touchdown Club meeting on Wednesday night. It was the club’s first guest speaker and for the guest speaker, it was his first speaking engagement. New Millsaps football coach Aaron Pelch visited the River City and introduced himself to the capacity crowd. How he first came to Millsaps is an interesting tale. Pelch and his family headed east after the staff at New Mexico Highlands University was fired. He arrived in Jackson without a job and got a call a few hours later and he and former coach Mike Dubose conducted a six-hour job interview that resulted in “the three best years of my life.” Pelch coached linebackers, the defensive line and special teams before he left in 2009 for the Oakland Raiders to be their assistant special teams coach. Pelch is excited about the future at Millsaps. “The groundwork he (DuBose) laid for us was where everything comes from,” Pelch said. “I think we’ve got a great, solid core coming back.”

Teamwork is a natural part of the human condition The other day covering a prep baseball game, a thought occurred after hearing “get a rip, kid,” “not your pitch, kid,” and “thata babe” for the hundred millionth time. Somewhere, someplace in the innards of the protein sequences called DNA, there is an instinct for humans to work together as a team to accomplish something of value. It sounds nuts, but what do humans possess for their defense besides a brain? No claws, unless you count those who don’t cut their fingernails ala Howard Hughes in his later, crazier reclusive years. No thick skin. No horns. Our senses, for the most part, are inferior to most other mammals. We don’t even have fur to keep us warm on chilly nights unless we kill it and

skin it first. So what does mankind have for an equalizer? Our penchant for teamwork. It forced us to communicate and become the social animals we are. Guess smoke signals and cave paintings were the old, old-school Facebook. Apparently, not all of us were born with this instinct that may or may not dwell in our DNA. Try Keyshawn “Just Throw Me the Damned Ball” Johnson, Chad Ochocinco or any other NFL

wideout not named Jerry Rice or Andre Johnson. Or famous NFL draft bust Ryan Leaf. No team players there. In the caveman days, killing a great wooly mammoth that would feed the tribe for a year was a huge task that one man couldn’t do alone. They had to develop communication and coordination so they could bring down the big beast. They probably chanted like those in the dugout. “Good spear!” “Way to hurl it, kid!” “Thata a babe!” Our cave-dwelling ancestors probably dove into a dogpile after taking down the mighty mammoth. The satisfaction they felt no different after a walkoff home run. There was a task that a group of disparate individuals, molded by strong leader-

ship into a cohesive whole, accomplished together. This country, especially on the professional sports scene, has always been about the stars. We forget how often the NBA’s leading scorer’s team won the NBA championship, which until the Michael Jordon era, wasn’t often. But the best teams that boasted the best chemistry where players knew their roles and functioned as a living singular entity were what took home the Larry O’Brien Trophy. Or the Lombardi Trophy. This instinct forms the primary plot of nearly every movie about team sports. Mix in several parts of unruly athletes. Add a coach with strong leadership and a creative way of squelching dissent and focusing individual efforts toward a team

goal. The best part is when the team comes together and accomplishes something more than the sum of its parts. This instinct is as endemic to the human condition as the need for food, shelter, love and Nintendo Wii. Just kidding about the last part. It’s about becoming part of something bigger than yourself. It also makes for longlasting friendships that will survive long after cleats and bats are retired. And if that’s either learned or a characteristic that stems from our very core, our DNA, it’s a gift that makes us who we are. And that’s a good thing.

College baseball LSU rallies to beat Southern Miss in 12th METAIRIE, La. — Leon Landry tripled in the tying run, then scored the game-winner on a single by Wet Delatte as LSU beat Southern Miss 6-5 in 12 innings Wednesday. Micah Gibbs went 3-for-6 with a homer and four RBIs for LSU (25-4), while Taylor Walker was 2-for-6 for Southern Miss (16-11). Walker’s solo homer in the top of the 12th gave Southern Miss a 5-4 lead before LSU rallied in the bottom of the inning to win it.

Rebels stumble against UALR OXFORD — Arkansas-Little Rock scored five runs in the seventh inning Wednesday — four of them on a pair of two-run home runs by Tyson Parks and Nate Brown — and went on to beat Ole Miss 9-6. Ole Miss (21-9) led 5-2 going into the seventh. Matt Smith went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and an RBI single. Brown, Brock Feldmann and Landis Wilson had three hits apiece for UALR (18-13).

NFL Saints agree to deal with lineman Brown METAIRIE, La. — The New Orleans Saints and free-agent defensive end Alex Brown have agreed to terms on a two-year contract. Saints spokesman Greg Bensel said the former Bears lineman visited the Saints’ suburban training headquarters on Tuesday and Wednesday. Financial terms were not disclosed. Brown, a former Florida standout who will be 31 in June, has played all eight of his NFL seasons for Chicago, which released him last week. The 6-foot-3, 260pound lineman started all 16 games for the Bears last season. His six sacks ranked second on the team.

College basketball Five Kentucky players declare for NBA draft LEXINGTON, Ky. — Freshman All-Americans John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins are among five Kentucky players who have declared for the NBA draft. Junior forward Patrick Patterson, freshman guard Eric Bledsoe and freshman center Daniel Orton are also entering the draft. Wall and Cousins are expected to be among the first few selected.

flashback

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS April 8 1935 — Gene Sarazen gets a double eagle on the 15th hole to erase Craig Wood’s three-stroke lead, and goes on to win the Masters. 1974 — In the home opener in Atlanta, Hank Aaron breaks Babe Ruth’s career record by hitting his 715th home run, connecting off Al Downing of Los Angeles in the fourth inning. 1975 — Frank Robinson, the first black manager in the majors, makes his debut as player-manager for the Cleveland Indians. Robinson hits a home run in his first at-bat — as a designated hitter — to help beat the New York Yankees 5-3. 2001 — Tiger Woods claims the greatest feat in modern golf by winning the Masters, giving him a clean sweep of the four professional majors in a span of 294 days. Woods, with his winning score of 16-under 272, wins the majors with a combined score of 65-under.

Fox protests budget cuts with comedy Megan Fox and her sometime boyfriend, actor Brian Austin Green, are protesting California school budget cuts in a new video online. In a video posted Wednesday on the comic Web site FunnyorDie.com, Fox urges viewers to “call, write and annoy the governor until he cries for his mommy.” She said more than $17 billion has been cut Megan from state educational programs over the past Fox two years, and Green said the “terminators in Sacramento” plan to cut another $2.5 billion. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell said last month that budget cuts have caused a 17 percent jump in the number of school districts facing financial uncertainty. Fox and Green’s 3 1/2-minute video had been viewed more than 66,500 times by Wednesday afternoon.

Houston postpones more tour dates Whitney Houston has again pushed back the European leg of her first tour in years on the advice of doctors who are encouraging her to take time to recover from a respiratory illness, according to a statement issued Wednesday. Houston had already postponed the European kickoff, originally scheduled for Tuesday in Paris, because of illness. A statement from a representative said doctors advised Houston to reschedule concerts today and Friday in Manchester, England, and a Sunday performance in Glasgow, Scotland. All dates are being rescheduled, and the 46-year-old singer’s tour is now supposed to start next Tuesday in Birmingham, England. The statement noted she delayed the tour with “great disappointment.”

‘Idol’ finalist saved from elimination

AND ONE MORE

The associaTed press

Competitors take part in the World Scrabble Championships in London. The White Fish Bay, Wis., resident, who has been playing Scrabble since she was 8 and now plays mainly online, was relieved to hear that the official rules aren’t changing. “Scrabble is supposed to be a challenging game, and if they allow proper names it wouldn’t be a challenge anymore.” The game strikes a chord with people, Williams said. “It’s such a part of the fabric of American life,” he said. “It’s about people’s love of words, it goes very, very deep. Certainly in our culture in North America you really don’t see this with any other game.”

Scrabble was invented in 1938 by an out-of-work architect named Alfred Butts in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. More than 100 million sets of the game have been sold in 29 different languages, according to Mattel’s Web site. As board games increasingly compete against video games and electronic devices, toy makers have introduced more variations, usually in limited editions, to keep them interesting. For example, in 2008 Hasbro, based in Pawtucket, R.I., introduced a new version of Clue that included younger charac-

ters and gave them first names — Kasandra Scarlet instead of Miss Scarlet — more weapons and new rooms including a spa. Last year they put out Clue: Secrets and Spies that incorporates text messages into the game. Hasbro has introduced many Scrabble variations, including Scrabble Slam, a card game, and Scrabble Flash, an electronic version using blocks that click together, due out in the fall. They haven’t hit the same nerve among Scrabble fans.

Bristol Palin to teens: Pregnancy can wait neW YOrK (aP) — Bristol Palin says that if girls knew how tough it was to be a mom, they’d think twice about having sex. The 19-year-old daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she has chosen to practice abstinence herself, until marriage. Bristol Palin, who once said it was unrealistic to ask young people to abstain from sex, said that it’s realistic for her personally. “I know it’s realistic to ask myself that, because I know I’m not going to until I’m married,” she said. Palin gave birth to a son, Tripp, in December 2008 and said she “wasn’t prepared at all” for the dramatic changes in her life since then. “I don’t think anyone realizes how difficult it really is until you actually have a screaming baby in your arms and you’re up all night,” said Palin. “It changes literally every aspect of your life, and if girls realized how hard it was to be a teen mom, they would think twice about having sex without the proper education and proper knowledge.” Birth rates for teen mothers dropped 2 percent in 2008 after an increase from 2005 to 2007 according to numbers released Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Palin hopes to help the decline continue by educating her peers. Last year, she was named an ambassador for The Candie’s Foundation, a division of the apparel brand Candie’s, which has been raising awareness about teen

Michael “Big Mike” Lynche didn’t get the big boot on “American Idol.” The soulful 26-year-old personal trainer and father from Queens, N.Y., was saved Wednesday by the judges on the ninth season of the Fox singing competition. Lynche was praised for his R&B take on “Eleanor Rigby” during Tuesday’s performance show featuring tunes from the Michael John Lennon and Paul McCartney songbook, Lynche but he still received the fewest viewer votes. “We have decided we’re going to see you next week,” Simon Cowell declared. The one-time-only power, introduced last season and previously used on piano-playing fifth-placer finisher Matt Giraud, allows the judges to save a contestant from being eliminated — if the panel unanimously agrees — up until the round in which the show’s top five finalists have been selected. With Lynche safe this week, that means two contestants will be sent packing next week.

neW YOrK (aP) — Scrabble purists can relax. News of a new version of the classic word game that Mattel plans to sell in the U.K. allowing proper nouns set off waves of dismay across the Internet. But the official rules fans know and love aren’t changing. Scrabble Trickster, due out in July in the U.K. only, not the U.S., will allow proper names such as city or celebrity names. Other twists include playing words backward or playing words unconnected to others on the board, Mattel said. The game is a limited edition and will not replace the original Scrabble in the U.K. or U.S. “This is just one new variation,” said John D. Williams Jr., executive director of National Scrabble Association, authorized by Hasbro to speak about Scrabble. Hasbro owns rights to the game in the U.S., and Mattel owns it in other countries. The controversy started when U.K. media outlets reported about the new version. In the U.S., where Scrabble is popular not only as a board game but also as an electronic game on Facebook and mobile phones — it’s the ninth top-grossing app on the iPhone and fifth on the newly introduced iPad — the articles were widely shared online and outrage spread. Michelle Cloud, 42, saw postings about the game Tuesday on two of her friend’s Facebook feeds.

City’s Meat-Free Mondays gets a shrug Besides approving rules against using plastic grocery bags, mixing recycling with compost, and smoking in sidewalk cafes, San Francisco supervisors have passed a resolution asking residents to observe meatless Mondays. San Francisco supervisors passed the resolution Tuesday for no-meat Mondays in their latest legislative endorsement of healthy, eco-conscious living. It cannot stop the city’s residents from eating meat. Instead, it is meant to call attention to the relationship between diet and climate change. To some, the resolution is a welcome reminder of the small part that residents play in solving a larger problem. Others, however, were left asking for Board of Supervisor-Free Fridays. Most shrugged it off as another one of those “only in San Francisco” initiatives that many forget about soon after passage.

Readers provided some doggone good resources for adopting — or acting as a foster parent — for an abandoned or abused dog. Read on: Dear Abby: In most states people can now create a trust for their pet.

In the trust they can state all their wishes, as singer Dusty Springfield did in stating she wanted her dog fed only imported baby food,

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: Much of your time and efforts are likely to be focused on practical objectives in the year ahead, which is well and good. However, don’t get yourself so involved in these pursuits that you fail to take some time out for a little relaxation. Aries (March 21-April 19) — This could be a good time to explore that new idea you’ve been mulling over, to see if it is even feasible. If it is something that can be used by the masses, it could be big. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — If you can, get to know better that person you recently met who has something to do with your work. Some happy results are likely to come about if you become pals. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Even though your present plans sound pretty good, it doesn’t mean they can’t be polished up a bit. Go over everything once again to see if you can make some improvements. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — You’re likely to be a gifted promoter today, who knows how to effectively sell what you want. However, to your credit, you won’t attempt to hawk anything you don’t find worthy. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — One-on-one relationships can take on an added significance today in the way of accomplishing things together that you wouldn’t be able to get done alone. Be willing to team up with another. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — This is a better than usual cycle to be able to satisfy some of your more ambitious interests. However, if you take some time to see if you can launch one of them, just be sure you’re willing to work for it. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Something over which you are able to exert a strong influence has an excellent chance of achieving success at this point in time, but you have to do something about it. Don’t sit on what you’ve got. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Things can go quite well for you today involving someone with whom you share a close arrangement. The important thing is that you work together when there is a major decision to be made. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If you aren’t of singular mind and purpose today, your accomplishments can be quite impressive. Work together with others and don’t limit yourself to only what one person wants. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Measures can be taken today to recoup that which you lost in a recent arrangement where you didn’t fare too well. If you take the initiative to do so, the accounts can be balanced. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If your sources turn out to be reliable regarding some information passed onto you that could directly affect your self-interests, big strides can be made today to achieve an important personal goal. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — When it comes to a commercial involvement today, use your common sense, but don’t underestimate your intuitive hunches either. They could enhance what your logic offers you.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: After our spring play, we had a cast party at our drama teacher’s house. His son played the main male character and his daughter had a minor part. I was fortunate to have been rewarded the main female part. I am in the 10th grade, so this was my first acting part and I had never gone to a “cast party.” I expected lots of snacks and cola drinks and a ton of laughs and a few hugs. There was plenty of food, cola drinks, hugs and laughs, but to my surprise, beer was also available. The teacher and his son led the “have a cold one” group, but about four more cast members were drinking. No one got drunk or obnoxious, but I still don’t think it was right for a teacher to provide beer to high-school students in his home. My parents want me to inform the principal about this, but I don’t want to. I know that I should, but I just can’t do it. I’m hoping someone else will. — Nameless, Chicago. Nameless: Now that I have printed your letter, the principal of your high school will be aware that a serious discussion with a certain drama teacher will take place. I hope the teacher has a few skills in a field other than education because I’m positive he will need to be using them soon. There are tens of thousands of dedicated teachers in the United States. The vast majority of them are moral, ethical and law-abiding members of society, but every once in a while, one will violate the trust placed in them by doing something unethical or illegal, thus ending a teaching career. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

Please tell “Thinking” that he can find what he’s looking for in companionship, and a middle-aged or older dog that would usually be passed up at the pound will get a new leash on life. — Tanna, Diamond Bar, Calif. Dear Abby: Many dog rescues need kind, loving foster homes for abused and abandoned animals who are awaiting adoption. It is hard to give up a dog after you have fostered and taken care of it for a while, and you do have the option of adopting it yourself, but believe me, this is definitely a worthwhile cause.

Wonderful older pets are put to sleep every day at shelters across the country. These pets are usually housetrained, leash-trained, calm and eager for love and attention. Puppies (and kittens), on the other hand, need constant attention, training and activity. Visit a pet shelter, and you may find your “perfect” companion patiently waiting for your love. — Ken Cohn, Tucson, Ariz.

Woman’s symptoms confusing to her friend Dear Dr. Gott: A friend of mine is 81. For the past several months, she has been experiencing flailing of the arms and legs, arching of her back and has no control of the actions. I thought along the lines of seizures, but she is awake through all the episodes and knows exactly what is happening. Would you have any idea what could cause these symptoms? I read your column every day, and you have helped so many people. I hope you have an answer to this puzzling physical problem. Thank you. Dear Reader: There are a number of medical conditions I considered when first reading your letter. The first was Tourette’s syndrome. This was easy to rule out, however, because diagnosis, in part, is confirmed in the presence of both motor and vocal tics that can but don’t necessarily occur at the same time. Then I put on my thinking cap and realized your friend is likely suffering from seizure activity. I will explain why. Seizures are an indication of a brain problem, but not all seizures cause convulsions and unconsciousness. For example, focal or partial seizures occur in just one part of the brain, as opposed to generalized seizures, which affect both sides. They can be brought on by abnormal heart rhythms, brain damage or infection, high fever, metabolic disorders and a great deal more. And now the interesting part: A Jacksonian seizure falls into the “partial seizure” category. It affects one part of the body and will then spread to another. Movements may occur in the hand or foot, moving from that limb onward as the electrical activity spreads to the brain. A person will be completely aware of what is happening during the abnormal activity. I recommend your friend make an appointment with her primary-care physician or a neurologist. Simple lab testing and an EKG can rule out a number of possibilities. An electroencephalogram, MRI or CT scan might be appropriate for confirmation of diagnosis. If she is found to have a seizure disorder, one could occur at an inopportune time and cause injury to her or others. This should be avoided at all cost. There are a great number of prescription medications available for control. As a friend, express your concerns and suggest she seek assistance. Dear Dr. Gott: You once wrote about severe spontaneous rectal spasms. I am experiencing this and am eager to have you respond so I can take your answer to my gynecologist. Dear Reader: I believe the condition to which you are referring is proctalgia fugax, with pain that can be sharp, stabbing or feel like a cramp at the opening of the anus. A similar condition is Levator Ani Syndrome, a dull pain felt higher up the rectal passage. Proctalgia fugax pain is brief, so treatment isn’t generally necessary. Levator ani can be

treated with sitz baths, ibuprofen, naproxen or massage to the muscles. Prevention is often successful by incorporating a highfiber diet and drinking plenty of water. Your physician should be able to diagnose you based on your symptoms. If questions arise, a digital exam might be performed so hemorrhoids, a mass or anal fissures can be ruled out.

Dear Abby: We are seniors like “Thinking About Adopting in Las Vegas” (Feb. 2), who wants to adopt a dog. He may find it difficult to adopt one, especially since big hearts and lots of love and patience many times aren’t considered “enough” today. We were denied every dog we wanted to adopt until a volunteer at Petfinder.com advised us that considering our ages, we should adopt a senior dog. We took their advice and have been blessed with 9-year-old Benji for almost a year. Puppies are like grandchildren — full of love, but they can leave us seniors exhausted. Senior dogs nap, are more mellow than puppies and are usually housebroken. If that man outlives his dog, he’ll know he gave his precious little one a good home and lots of love. If Petfinder is in his area, they will make sure your little one is adopted into the perfect home — not just “any” home. — Benji’s
