By The Associated Press Dozens of tornadoes ripped through the South, flattening homes and businesses and killing at least 214 people in six states in the deadliest outbreak in nearly 40 years. As day broke this morning, people in hard-hit Alabama surveyed flattened, debrisstrewn neighborhoods and told of pulling bodies from rubble after the storms passed Wednesday afternoon and evening. “It happened so fast it

Historic Shirley House is alive with restoration By Pamela Hitchins firstname.lastname@example.org
Like all Vicksburg natives, Donald Roesch grew up with the Vicksburg National Military Park as his virtual backyard, and as an adult, he runs there, often passing the large, stately white Shirley House near the Illinois Memorial. Now Roesch has entered into the history of the 170year-old house, the sole surviving Civil War-era structure in the park. As project manager for the interior restoration of the Shirley House, Roesch’s fingerprints are on floorboards and plaster, staircases and 12-pane windows. “It was really neat to be a part of it,” said Roesch, an employee of Fordice Construction Company, contractors for the restoration. “I have always seen it and I had
looked in the windows. It was like solving a mystery to go inside and actually see what it was like.” The restoration was celebrated Wednesday with a rededication reception that allowed the public into the house for the first time in 70 years and featured U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss.. “As we rededicate the park’s historic house today, we honor the sacrifice of those who fought so bitterly 150 years ago, and we also remember the resiliency that was born of that sacrifice,” Wicker told about 50 assembled guests and friends of the park. “Our union has indeed proved to be enduring. Today marks another occasion to celebrate that we are one nation, and that we are truly indivisible.”

LAKE CHOTARD — Watching the water rise in springtime was already a rite of spring at Chotard Landing. This week, some flood fatigue crept through Margie Johnson’s smile as workers and others helped move inventory out of the popular lakeside tavern. “It’s really getting old at this point,” Johnson said between trips to rented storage space. Johnson said Chotard Lake lapped the roof that covers a rear patio of the business, owned by husband, Jerry. “That was 2008,” she said. This year’s second springtime crest on the Mississippi River is forecast to surpass 2008’s high stage of 50.9 feet, reaching 53.5 feet at the Vicksburg gauge on May 18, the highest since 1937. The river was 41.3 feet in Vicksburg this morning, up a foot from Wednesday. Skies are predicted to be clear locally

Income up, expenses down at convention center, auditorium By Manivanh Chanprasith firstname.lastname@example.org Income is up and expenses are down at Vicksburg Convention Center and Vicksburg Auditorium, the facilities’ management company said.
Larry Gawronski, executive director of VenuWorks, the company that manages the city-owned facilities, reported to the advisory board Wednesday. The convention center’s revenue was $197,247, 4 per-
cent ahead of the $367,579 budget projections. Operating expenses of $484,154 were 3 percent less than the $1,039,634 budgeted for the six months. The money received from a 2 percent lodging tax was down 5 percent, but Gawronski said
he is comfortable heading into May and June, busy months. “We feel recovery is there and we continue to monitor that,” he said. “Lodging tax seems to be making a recovery as travelers seem to be back on the road. This is a positive
Continued from Page A1. “Situated along the old Jackson Road, the house witnessed some of the bloodiest fighting of the Vicksburg campaign,” said park superintendent Michael Madell, but had deteriorated to “a hollow shell.” The Shirley House was built in the late 1830s by Nicholas Gray, a native of Wexford County, Ireland, and named Wexford Lodge in honor of his homeland. In 1851 it became the home of Judge James Shirley and his family. Originally, the main floor had comprised a living room, master bedroom, two other bedrooms and a plantation office, said park historian Terry Winschel. The children slept upstairs, the dining room was downstairs in the basement and the kitchen was in an outbuilding behind the house. The main floor of the restored house now features four primary rooms, a wide hallway, two smaller rooms and a back veranda. Some of its original flooring has been salvaged, walls have been replastered and fireplaces rebricked. A handicapped accessible entrance and parking have been created at the rear. “Not only is it a tangible reminder of the events of 1863,” Winschel said of the restoration, “but the public

Roger Wicker at the rededication of the Shirley House Wednesday. will be able to walk back in time and get an idea of what it must have been like for the civilian population during the course of the Siege and the events of the Siege.” For the foreseeable future, the house will be open to the public only for special events, Madell said. Eventually, it’s hoped that interpretive displays in the four main rooms will reflect its history. Wednesday’s rededication also featured 31 battleline markers that have been recast and will be placed in their original positions, replacing markers taken up during World War II scrap metal drives. Funds were
provided by a park service grant, a gift from the Friends and a grant from the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. Future plans call for restoring some of the original battlefield sight lines. Houston resident John Nau, a member of the Friends board of directors, the Civil War Trust and the National Park Foundation, who was scheduled to speak but was grounded by storms, has contributed $300,000 to fund tree and vegetation removal on 90 acres of VNMP battlefield, in addition to 10 acres he previously paid to clear along the park’s south loop near the
Texas Monument. “I’ve just come to realize that the American Civil War created the country that we are today,” Nau said by telephone. “I see the battlefields like Vicksburg and Gettysburg as symbols of who we are as a people.” Nau said removing trees and vegetation will help visitors and children studying the war understand how close Confederate and Union lines were to each other and restore an authentic look to heavily visited areas of the park.
Teen held for firing shots after tiff over phone A Vicksburg teen accused of firing shots at a vehicle after an argument over a cell phone was in the Warren County Jail this morning, said police Lt. Bobby Stewart. John Taylor Jr., 18, 1501 Military Ave., was charged with three counts of attempted aggravated assault and shooting into an occupied vehicle, said Stewart. At least two shots were fired around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday near Military Avenue and Franklin Street, shattering the rear window of the car and putting a hole in the trunk, Stewart said. Taylor was identified as a suspect over police radios and was picked up at Harris and Lake streets a short time later, said the lieutenant. He was held without bond pending a court hearing Friday.

Peoples was in the Warren County Jail awaiting an initial hearing today.
TV reported missing on Mission 66 A residential burglary was reported in the city Wednesday, said police Lt. Bobby Stewart. At 9:56 p.m., a 32-inch Samsung TV valued at $700 was reported stolen from a home in the 1200 block of Mission 66.

Barbour cuts obesity council in effort to trim bureaucracy JACKSON — Mississippi is the most obese state in the nation, but Republican Gov. Haley Barbour said it doesn’t need another layer of bureaucracy to study the issue. Barbour has vetoed a bill that proposed creating a 34-member council on combating obesity. He said it duplicates programs that have been in place for years. “This bill simply adds to the fat of state government,” Bar-
bour wrote in his veto message, which was signed Tuesday and released Wednesday. A governor’s commisGov. Haley sion on physiBarbour cal fitness was established in 1992 and still exists. A 2007 state law required every school district

12 killed, 190 hurt in crackdown on rioters SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Yemeni security forces opened fire on a massive anti-government demonstration in the capital Sanaa Wednesday, killing 12 protesters and wounding some 190, a doctor at the scene said. The violence broke out as about 100,000 government opponents filled a landmark square at the epicenter of the uprising, spilling into the streets around the state TV building. Witnesses said security forces, including members of the elite Republican Guard, fired live ammunition and tear gas into the crowd to break it up. Snipers were seen on nearby rooftops aiming at the crowd. “Many of the dead and wounded were shot in the head and torso,” doctor Mohammed al-Ibahi said. Yemenis in at least 18 cities and towns launched a civil disobedience campaign Wednesday in an escalation of their more than two-month-old uprising to bring down longserving President Ali Abdullah Saleh. Shops, schools and government offices were shuttered. The closures are planned twice weekly until Saleh steps down, activists said. Inspired by revolts across the Arab world, Yemenis have staged near-daily protests calling for the ouster of Saleh, the

Barbour nixes part of expense funding Gov. Haley Barbour has struck down part of a bill dealing with legislative expenses because he said it could drain the secretary of state’s budget.
Barbour vetoed only one part of a bill that transfers funds to support the state budget for the year beginning July 1. The rest of the bill becomes law. The section he vetoed says legislators could direct the state fiscal officer to take money from the secretary of state’s budget to pay fees for membership in legislative organizations or “any other legislative-related expenses.”
Veteran football coach says guilty to molestation GREENVILLE (AP) — A longtime high school football coach from Mississippi and Alabama has pleaded guilty to federal charges in a molestation case involving teenage boys. Dwight Bowling appeared Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Greenville. Court records show the 56-year-old pleaded guilty to two counts of taking a minor across state lines, from Mississippi to Alabama, for sex. He pleaded guilty to one count of obstruction for trying
to get someone else to lie to investigators. A sentencing date was not set. Bowling faces up to 20 years in prison on the obstruction count and 10 years to life in prison for each of the two counts of molestation. Bowling coached 28 years at Smithville High School in Monroe County, Miss., before retiring and taking a similar job at Sulligent High in Sulligent, Ala. He was the coach for the Alabama school when he was arrested in September in Mississippi.

A Yemeni boy shouts slogans today in Sanaa. country’s ruler of 32 years. At times, millions have flooded the streets of the capital and other cities and towns. The president has clung to power despite the street protests and defections by many loyalists, including his tribesmen, military officers and senior officials. Security forces and Saleh supporters have killed more than 130 people since the unrest erupted in early February. Chaos ensued after government forces opened fire in Sanaa Wednesday, sending
protesters scattering in all directions to escape sniper fire and security agents hurling rocks. Activists said many of the security forces shooting into the crowd were dressed in civilian clothing. “We were massing peacefully along the state television building and suddenly I heard so much gunfire whizzing by,” said demonstrator Nashwan al-Badani. “People began to panic and fall to the ground as they stampeded to escape the shooting.”
Ambulances rushed the wounded to the hospital, where the screams of women who had lost their children in the panic rang through the halls. Ahmed al-Maqtari, a doctor helping to treat the wounded, said the injuries included wounds from live ammunition, rocks and tasers. Yemen was already a country teetering on the brink even before the uprising began. Poverty and corruption are rampant, and there is widespread lawlessness.
Wood Bernanke fears inflation, higher interest rates #28’ treAted 10’ 12’ 14’ 16’ 20’ WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Wednesday that the Fed can’t take additional steps to try to ease high unemployment without escalating inflation. If inflation were to accelerate, the Fed would have to raise rates to slow borrowing and spending and blunt price increases. Hiring might then slow. Speaking to reporters, Bernanke became the first chairman in the Fed’s 98-year history to begin holding regular news conferences. The Ben session, the Bernanke first of three scheduled news conferences this year, is part of Bernanke’s long-standing campaign to make the Fed more transparent and to cast himself as open and accessible. In fielding questions, he sketched a picture of an economy growing steadily but still weighed down by a prolonged period of unemployment, now at 8.8 percent. He acknowledged the pain that is causing,
Fed says $600B bond program to end in June WASHINGTON (AP) — The economy and job creation have strengthened enough for the Federal Reserve to end on schedule a program of buying Treasury bonds to help the economy, the Fed said Wednesday. Ending a two-day meeting, the Fed made no changes to the program. T h e d e c i s i o n wa s unanimous. The bond purchases were intended to lower loan rates, encourage spending and boost stock prices. noting that around 45 percent of the unemployed have been without a job for six months or longer.
“We know the consequences of that can be very distressing because people who are out of work for a long time, their skills tend to atrophy,” Bernanke said. But he added: “It’s not clear that we can get substantial improvements in payrolls without some additional inflation risks, and in my view we can’t achieve a sustainable recovery without keeping inflation under control.” Bernanke appeared relaxed with reporters, projecting a calming presence and saying nothing that might rattle investors. The Fed chairman offered some clues about when and how the Fed would begin raising interest rates. For more than two years, the Fed has kept a pledge to hold its key rate at a record low near zero for an “extended period.”

Oddly enough, the president said he was pleased that Congress, in acting last week, corrected “a flaw” in Obamacare that would have placed unnecessary bookkeeping burdens on small businesses, requiring them to file an IRS Form 1099 for every vendor or individual they pay more than $600 in a year. The president apparently hadn’t noticed the burdensome flaw when he signed the law last year. We are chagrined that the president still refuses to see burdensome costs and regulations imposed by Obamacare that will do far more damage. Although it remains an uphill battle, we encourage Congress to continue efforts to repeal the law passed in a rush by the then-Democraticcontrolled Congress, bringing virtually the entire health care
industry under government control. Congressional Republicans called the 1099 reform bill “a down payment on total repeal.” Most Democrats said it merely improved last year’s law. If the president signs the measure, it will be the first success in repealing any part of his national health care overhaul. Democrats and Republicans agreed the 1099 provision would have unduly burdened small businesses. But bills were introduced seven times in the past year to repeal the provision because agreement could not be reached on how to “pay for” removing it. In the perverse parlance of Washington, Congress considers taxpayers’ money to belong to the government, so denying the government receipt of tax revenue must be “paid for.” The final bill covered the estimated $22 billion lost revenue by forcing greater repayment of health insurance subsidies for families whose income unexpectedly exceeds permitted thresholds. The quibbling over repeal of
40 YEARS AGO: 1971
such an obviously unnecessary, burdensome and costly regulation does not bode well for Republicans, who seek to completely undo Obamacare, whose major provisions go into effect in 2014. Nevertheless, we’re hopeful the recent proposal by House Republicans to reduce government spending and recast health care policies can succeed. Essentially, the plan proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) would transform Medicare, the government entitlement program for the elderly, into a consumer-driven approach to encourage individuals to shop for private insurance with costs partially offset by government subsidies. The soon-to-be bankrupt Medicare program and the even worse addition of Obamacare are economically unsustainable and give government control of what should be personal health decisions. We believe the free market and rescinding government mandates and regulations can bring down costs and reduce the need for government involvement.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler
Slavery the driving force behind the American Civil War In the penultimate paragraph of perhaps the second-greatest speech ever delivered on American soil, Abraham Lincoln set forth the reason the nation was engaged in a great Civil War. “One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the Southern part of it,” Lincoln said in his second inaugural address. “These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war.” That’s pretty clear: The Civil War was fought because of slavery. So if that were so evident at noon on March 4, 1865, why has there been such controversy for a century and a half over the real cause of the Civil War? That is a far more difficult question. For reasons economic, social, political and historical, both sides in the Civil War have portrayed the struggle as one over states’ rights, or the size of government or the economic destiny of the country. Slavery was the cause that dared not speak its name. These other issues were factors, to be sure. But they all grew out of slavery and the great divide that
The founding fathers did many things, but they punted on slavery, leaving it to a future generation to settle.
Shribman slavery created — first between black and white, then between landowner and laborer, next between North and South, finally between the Union and the Confederacy. Strains of these struggles and these divides still mark us. Perhaps they will persist longer than Lincoln’s prescription, when he suggested later in that splendid inauguration paragraph that the fighting would last “until all the wealth piled by the bondsman’s 250 years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword.” But we cannot erase those divisions until we face, forthrightly and courageously, the issue that seems so obvious 150 years later
and that still seems so difficult to confront. Slavery, and not economic and political independence, was at the center of the war. To those who deny it, consider this question: Would there have been a civil war on American soil if for some reason slavery were not planted on this continent along with tobacco and cotton? In truth, it is possible to search the remarks of Abraham Lincoln and to find in them multiple causes of the Civil War. He began his presidency hoping to restrict the spread of slavery. Then he struggled to preserve the Union. Only later did he decide the fight was about freedom. And by freedom, he meant freedom for all, a broad freedom as envisioned in the Declaration of Inde-
pendence but — and here is where Lincoln charted new territory — applied to all Americans, white and black. In the greatest speech ever delivered on American soil, Lincoln spoke of “unfinished work,” and he was not talking only about the task of winning the war. He was speaking, too, of winning that broader definition of freedom. That is what he meant by the phrase “new birth of freedom.” And his opening, speaking of what happened fourscore and seven years earlier — in 1776 — makes it clear that he is taking the Declaration of Independence and grafting it onto the American Constitution, or at least onto the American conscience, with its timeless celebration of the Enlightenment principle that “all men are created equal.” But even the American Constitution was marked by slavery. The specter haunting the Constitutional Convention, along with the fecklessness of the doomed Articles of Confederation, was slavery. The founding fathers did many things, but they punted on slavery, leaving it to a future generation to settle. That future generation dealt with it by fighting over the Mis-
souri Compromise and the KansasNebraska Act and then fighting the Civil War. During the war, the primacy of slavery was incontrovertible. In its commentary on the firing on Fort Sumter, the Chicago Tribune said “that barbarous institution” was “the cause of the rebellion which months of effort has ripened into the bloody strife this day commenced.” Frederick Douglass said at the war’s start that the cessation of slavery should be the price of secession from the Union. Understand slavery and you understand the Civil War. Understand the Civil War and you understand America. The New Freedom, the New Deal, the great prosperity that followed World War II, the youth and women’s movements of the 1960s, the Reagan Revolution — they’re all important. But not one of them defines us the way the Civil War did, and does. That’s why the 150th anniversary of the Civil War is not only a commemoration, but also an opportunity. •

PHILADELPHIA — The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency says the state’s death toll from violent storms Tuesday and Wednesday is now 32. MEMA officials say there have been more than 120 injuries. Damage was reported in 50 counties across the state and the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians of more than 230 homes and 20 businesses damaged. Damage assessments were still ongoing today. MEMA reported 13 deaths and 40 injuries in Monroe
County; four deaths and 30 injuries in Clarke; three deaths each in Chickasaw and Kemper; two deaths in Jasper; and one death each in Choctaw, Lafayette, Marshall, Pike, Smith, Webster and Yazoo. The Pike County death occurred Tuesday. Meanwhile, in Monroe County, authorities said a possible tornado left the Smithville, a town of about 900 people, in shambles. Officials said no building along a mile-long stretch through town was unaffected, and most were destroyed. Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson and a crew of deputies and inmates were among the ones
assigned to search for survivors and recover the dead. Johnson said his crew found five bodies while digging through the rubble. Homes with bodies in them were marked with two orange Xs. “I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Johnson. “This is something that no one can prepare for.” In Choctaw, 40-year-old Wade Sharp, a Covington, La., police officer, died when a tree fell his tent at Jeff Busby Park just off the Natchez Trace Parkway. Sharp’s 9-year-old daughter survived unharmed. In Kemper County, in the east-central part of the state, sisters Florrie Green and
Maxine McDonald, and their sister-in-law Johnnie Green, all died in a mobile home that was destroyed by a storm. All were in their 80s. In the east central Mississippi city of Philadelphia, deputy fire chief Steve Thomas said a tornado passed through about 2 p.m. Wednesday, damaging the roof of the fire station, a nearby Army National Guard armory and a city park before working its way across Neshoba County. In Holmes County, the sheriff’s department lost its communications tower, and a building with old case files and evidence was destroyed, according to local officials.

erty. The state laws vary but in most cases you will have to payoff several years of taxes and then start the foreclosure process. Generally speaking, this is a technical area where there are people who do this on a regular basis as an occupation and frequently they prosper. I would not recommend this kind of activity to you. If you wish, you can search on your own and see of there is a mortgage on the property and there is a foreclosure possibly by the lender. You can contact and ask; they may or may not respond. Simply fooling around with tax liens in your circumstance is a game I would not want to play. •

Alabama’s state emergency management agency said it had confirmed 131 deaths, while there were 32 in Mississippi, 29 in Tennessee, 13 in Georgia, eight in Virginia and one in Kentucky. The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., said it received 137 tornado reports into Wednesday night. Some of the worst damage was in Tuscaloosa, a city of more than 83,000 that is home to the University of Alabama. Neighborhoods there were leveled by a massive tornado caught on video by a tower-mounted news camera that barreled through late Wednesday afternoon. “When I looked back, I just saw trees and stuff coming by,” said Mike Whitt, a resident at DCH Regional Medical Center who ran from the hospital’s parking deck when the wind started swirling and he heard a roar. This morning, he walked through the neighborhood next to the hospital, home to a mix of students and townspeople, looking at dozens of homes without roofs. Household items were scattered on the ground — a drum, running shoes, insulation, towels and a shampoo bottle. Streets were impassable, the pavement strewn with trees, pieces of houses and cars with their windows blown out. Dr. David Hinson was working at the hospital when the tornado hit. He and his wife had to walk several blocks to get to their house, which was destroyed. Several houses down, he helped pull three students from the rubble. One was dead and two were badly injured. He and others used pieces of debris as makeshift stretchers to carry them to an ambulance. “We just did the best we could to get them out and

The storm system spread destruction from Texas to New York, where dozens of roads were flooded or washed out. The governors of Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia issued emergency declarations for parts of their states. Dave Imy, a meteorologist with the prediction service, said the deaths were the most in a tornado outbreak killed 315 people in 1974. In Alabama, where as many as a million people were without power, Gov. Robert Bentley said 2,000 national guard troops had been activated and were helping to
search devastated areas for people still missing. He said the National Weather Service and forecasters did a good job of alerting people, but there is only so much that can be done to deal with powerful tornadoes a mile wide. President Barack Obama said he had spoken with Bentley and approved his
request for emergency federal assistance. The storms came on the heels of a system that killed 10 people in Arkansas and one in Mississippi earlier this week. Less than two weeks earlier, a smaller batch of twisters raced through Alabama, touching off warning sirens, damaging businesses and downing power lines in Tuscaloosa, but there were no deaths there then. In Kemper County, Miss., in the east-central part of the state, sisters Florrie Green and Maxine McDonald, and their sister-in-law Johnnie Green, all died in a mobile home that was destroyed by a storm. And in Pleasant Grove, Samantha Nail surveyed the damage in the blue-collar subdivision where hers was the only home still intact. The storm slammed heavy pickup trucks into ditches and obliterated tidy brick houses, leaving behind a mess of mattresses, electronics and children’s toys scattered across a grassy plain where dozens used to live. “We were in the bathroom holding on to each other and holding on to dear life,” Nail said. “If it wasn’t for our concrete walls, our home would be gone like the rest of them.”

PRECISION FORECAST BY CHIEF METEOROLOGIST BARBIE BASSSETT
Continued from Page A1. the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Board of Mississippi Levee Commissioners have worked to build a 500-foot berm to enclose sand and other materials that have seeped in over time — creating “significant sand boils” found last year, levee board engineer Peter Nimrod said. “We don’t want piping or holes being created,” Nimrod said. Despite the issues and the proximity, Nimrod didn’t consider Buck Chute to be part of 69 miles of deficient levees identified after the 1973 flood between Greenville and Mayersville, where sections have been raised 2 to 8 feet in segments over the past 38 years. Truckloads of dirt from the forest below the levee are being used to build it. Recent rain and high water sped up a process the Corps had planned originally for this fall, Corps spokesman Kavanaugh Breazeale said. Eagle Lake was at 77.6 feet this morning, a tenth of a foot higher than Wednesday. About a half a foot of water was added in March, but none has been added since. At Steele Bayou, land side water level was at 88 feet this morning, up half a foot from Wednesday, and the river side was 88.9 feet, up seventenths of a foot. The gates will remain closed until the river side stage is lower than the level in the 4,093-squaremile Yazoo Backwater Area. A 103-foot crest is expected on the river side around May 18. The land side crest is expected to reach 93 feet by June 10, based on recent rainfall. High-water levee inspections begin next week and the levee board will close the mainline river levee to the general public once Greenville reaches 55 feet; this morning’s level was 47.4 feet. Local residents will be allowed on the Yazoo Backwater Levee until stages in Vicksburg reach 53 feet. After that, the connecting levee will close and only Lowwater Bridge Road will be open to locals. The Mississippi Department of Transportation will close Mississippi 465 between U.S. 61 North and Eagle Lake once

Sidelines Comments draw fire for McDowell
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Atlanta pitching coach Roger McDowell apologized Wednesday in response to a fan’s complaint that McDowell spewed homophobic comments, made crude sexual gestures and threatened to knock out his teeth with a bat before the Braves played the San Francisco Giants over the weekend. “I am deeply sorry that I responded to the heckling fans in San Francisco on Saturday,” McDowell said in a statement. “I apologize to everyone for my actions.” Justin Quinn, 33, of Fresno said he was in the stands at AT&T Park in San Francisco during pregame batting practice with his wife and 9-yearold twin daughters when he noticed McDowell hectoring three men and asking them, “Are you guys a homo couple or a threesome?” Quinn said he proceeded to make crude sexual gestures with his hips and a bat. Quinn, who was down in front of the field, then shouted, “Hey there are kids out here,” he said during a news conference at the Los Angeles office of noted attorney Gloria Allred. Quinn alleged that the coach replied that kids don’t belong at a baseball park, picked up a bat, walked up to Quinn and asked him, “How much are your teeth worth?” Quinn said he felt threatened and was unsure whether McDowell intended to hit him.

Vikings brace for loaded Jaguars By Jeff Byrd firstname.lastname@example.org In two meetings this season against Madison Central — the state’s top team with a 26-1 record — Warren Central was outscored 15-1. Madison Central has three Southeastern Conference signees. The Jaguars, ranked seventh nationally by Maxpreps.com, have hit 36 home runs in 27 games and hit .379 as a team. Five players are batting over .373 and all five have driven in at least 20 runs. Yet gaudy stats, rankings, records and previous outcomes aside, Warren Central coach Josh Abraham likes his Vikings’ chances against the Jaguars when the Class 6A second-round playoff series opens Friday night at 7 at Madison Central. Game 2 of the best-of-three series will be at Viking Field Saturday night at 7. A third game, if necessary, will be Monday at Madison Central. WC enters the series at 15-13 and needed three games to subdue Columbus in an opening-round series last Saturday. The secondround series is a rematch of last year’s second-round series, which the Jaguars won in a two-game sweep. Abraham and his team remain unfazed. “I really like where we are at,” Abraham said before

Series glance Friday’s Game 5:30 p.m. at Madison Saturday’s Game 7 p.m. at Warren Central Monday’s Game TBA, if necessary, at Madison Central Tuesday’s practice. “I think this is going to be a really good series. I feel like it will be well worth the price of admission to see these games. We’ve prepared for
all year for this week.” What fuels Abraham’s belief in his Vikings is their approach against power pitchers — something they have gotten a large dose of in the regular season and already in the postseason. The Vikings fared well against the best Columbus could throw in the opening game of last week’s series, gashing ace Christian Dale for six runs. Thanks to a tough non-division schedule, they’ve faced plenty of quality arms all season. “Our hitters are really hit-
ting the fastball well,” Abraham said. “With what we’ve faced this season, I feel like we’re in a comfort zone against hard-throwing teams. The guys who throw 85 to 86 (mph), I believe we can turn on those guys. What we had problems against Columbus was trying to adjust to someone throwing 30 miles slower.” That would be Columbus soft-tosser Hunter Mullis, who tossed a complete game to beat the Vikings 5-2 in See Vikings, Page B2.
JACKSON — During Derek Sherrod’s four-year career at Mississippi State, there weren’t many reasons to criticize the massive 6-foot-6, 305-pound left tackle. One of the few criticisms has been that for someone who was supposed to be such a mean football player, Sherrod is awfully nice. But Sherrod’s constant smile has served him well so far, and it looks like he’ll have another reason to grin early in the NFL Draft, which begins with the first round tonight. “I’ll be happy wherever I go, because a lot of people don’t get this opportunity,” Sherrod said. “They’d give anything to go work out for NFL teams and have the chance that I’ve got.” Sherrod could become the first Mississippi State player taken in the first round of the NFL Draft since 1996, which is the longest drought for a Southeastern Conference program. He was an All-SEC selection for a Mississippi State team that was one of the biggest surprises in the nation last season, finishing with a 9-4 record that included a dominant 52-14 victory over Michigan in the Gator Bowl. Coach Dan Mullen, who was offensive coordinator at Florida before coming to Mississippi State, has described Sherrod as “the best offensive lineman I’ve ever coached.” Sherrod could switch to right tackle in the NFL and has worked on both sides of the line for teams over the past few months. He said multiple teams have kept in contact over the past few days — especially ones that pick late in the first round. He plans to watch the draft at home in Columbus, which is about 25 miles from Mississippi State’s campus. Sherrod said it “would be a huge honor” to be taken in the first round, especially since the Bulldogs haven’t had a player selected that early since he was in elementary school.
Anything is possible for Warren Central in playoff series Just looking at Warren Central’s upcoming Class 6A second-round playoff series with Madison Central, which starts on Friday, one word jumps out: mismatch. In two meetings this season, the Jaguars (26-1) have outscored the Vikings 15-1. They are ranked seventh in the nation by Maxpreps.com and have three SEC signees. Six of their hitters have tallied over 20 RBIs this season. Their stats sound like they were achieved on Playstation 3, not Mississippi high school baseball. Their team ERA (1.72) is just a step above nothing, while they’ve hit home runs (36 this season) at a clip that would make Babe Ruth smile. However, Warren Central
POST SPORTS EDITOR
(15-13) isn’t buying this hype. The Vikings are positively giddy to be taking on the Jaguars, which eliminated them in the second round of last year’s Class 6A playoffs. Could the Vikings pull the upset to end all upsets? Anything is possible in a threegame set. First of all, the Vikings have excellent pitching depth. In addition to Beau Wallace and Devon Bell, they have Chase
Ladd, Carlos Gonzalez and Blake Jobe ready to come out of the pen and help out. While none is in the class of Madison Central ace and Ole Miss signee Josh Laxer, all are capable pitchers can fill up the strike zone and give WC coach Josh Abraham some options if either starter falters. Offensively, while the Vikings aren’t in the same league power-wise with the Jaguars, they have plenty of offense. Wallace is a dangerous leadoff man (.474 average, 12 RBIs, five doubles, three triples and three home runs), while Clayton Ashley (.292 average, 21 RBIs, seven doubles and two home runs) and Gonzalez (.452 average, 18 RBIs, five doubles and two home runs) provide plenty of run-driving muscle behind
him. Add to that the emergence of No. 2 hitter Brandon Gates (.352 average, 13 RBIs) and Hunter Austin (.344 average, 12 RBIs) and the Vikings bring a dangerous order that has showed, in flashes, they can deal with top-flight pitchers. The Vikings don’t have that mind-blowing, middleof-the-lineup guy that teams fear, but like with their pitching, they have strength in numbers. The key for the Vikings on the hill is getting ahead in the pitch count. Falling behind and giving hitters’ counts to a team with 36 bombs is a recipe for disaster. Conversely in the batter’s box, the Vikings are going to need to work some counts and tire out the Jaguars’ pitching staff to increase the
likelihood of a mistake pitch here and there. But above all, the Vikings need to view this series as an opportunity. As you can ask the Oakland Raiders, who drafted can’t-miss LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell in 2007, and the San Diego Chargers, who drafted Mr. Congeniality and former Washington State quarterback Ryan Leaf in 1998, there are no sure things. It might be far-fetched to believe the Vikings can win this series. But if the outcome was a foregone conclusion, there would be no reason to play the games. •

MLB Braves beat Latos, Padres 7-0 SAN DIEGO — Chipper Jones didn’t stay tied with Mickey Mantle for long. “I put him in the rearview mirror,” Jones quipped after hitting a tworun triple and finishing with three RBIs as the Atlanta Braves beat San Diego 7-0 Wednesday, leaving Padres ace Mat Latos winless since September. Jones moved out of a tie with Mantle and into sole possession of second place among switch-hitters with 1,512 RBIs. Hall of Famer Eddie Murray tops the list at 1,917. Jones moved into a tie with the Mick by hitting a two-run homer on Tuesday night. He passed him with an RBI groundout in the first inning, then added the two-run triple in the five-run second. Jones, whose parents idolized Mantle, said his father texted him both Tuesday night and on Wednesday. “It’s gratifying,” he added. “I look at the numbers as me just going out and doing my job. That’s the way I’ve always approached it. I never really thought about my place or anything like that. When you grew up hearing about Mickey the way I did, and with the reverence that I heard, to pass him in career RBIs, that’s quite a feat.” Braves starter Tommy Hanson (3-3) struck out 10 and walked only one in seven innings and combined with two relievers on a four-hitter. The Padres were shut out for the major league-leading seventh time in 25 games, and for the third time on a seven-game homestand. San Diego scored only 10 runs in the seven games. Latos (0-4) has lost nine straight starts dating to last season, matching the longest streak in club history.
Minor League Baseball Biscuits roast Mississippi Braves The Montgomery Biscuits scored nine unanswered runs on Wednesday afternoon at Trustmark Park, downing the Mississippi Braves 17-2 to take the series. Five pitchers took the hill for the Braves (6-14). Tim Gustafson (0-1) suffered the loss, going just 2 1/3 innings and allowing seven earned runs. Shane Dyer (1-0) picked up the win for the Biscuits, tossing 6 1/3 innings. He held Mississippi scoreless on just two hits through six innings. At the plate, Donnell Linares was the only Brave with multiple hits, scorching two doubles in four trips to the plate.

Vikings Continued from Page B1. Game 2 and force a deciding third game. Mullis stayed on the mound, got to the fifth inning with a 2-1 lead, but finally ran out of luck against the Vikings. WC rallied for five runs to take a 6-2 lead in the fifth inning and went on clinch the series with a 9-3 win. The Vikings will see a much different pitcher Friday. Madison Central will start Ole Miss signee Josh Laxer (9-0, 1.68 ERA, 78 strikeouts) in Game 1. “He’s upper 80s and can run it up to 90,” Abraham said. “Sumrall put up seven runs on him in the deal at Clinton last Saturday. We haven’t faced him this year, but we did last year.” Viking senior third baseman Carlos Gonzalez faced Laxer twice while playing for the Vicksburg-
based Mississippi Titans last summer. “I saw him twice last summer,” Gonzalez said. “It’s going to be a showdown Friday. We’re going to have a good, fun time.” The Vikings did that in pair of quality wins this season against Northwest Rankin and Oak Grove. Northwest Rankin is the only team to beat the Jaguars this season, 5-3, in Brandon. Oak Grove is the Division 5-6A champion. Madison Central will test the Vikings pitching led by Devon Bell (3-4), Beau Wallace (5-2) and Gonzalez (3-2). Ole Miss signee Spencer Turnbull paces the Jaguar lineup with a .444 average, 7 home runs and 28 RBIs. Curt Chism has driven in 31 runs and has six homers. Alabama signee Zac Irwin bats .373.

The Lady Cougars are led by Audrey Hartman (.529, 29 runs, 18 RBIs) and pitcher Danielle Smith (11-6, 1.94 ERA, 124 strikeouts). Vicksburg counters with Blake DeRossette, the team’s top hitter with a .300 average and 18 runs scored. Lea Davies has driven in 11 runs while Thomas and Victoria Lewis add speed to the lineup. Warren Central (13-11) travels to Liberty Park to face Madison Central, last year’s 6A champion, for Game 1 in its best-of-three series on Friday night at 5:30. WC will host Madison Central for Game 2 Saturday at 11 a.m., and a third game will follow, if necessary. Warren Central coach Dana
McGivney said the 9-7 win over Cleveland has helped her team’s confidence. “It was a fight to the finish, but to win up there was a real encouraging sign going into the playoffs,” McGivney said. “We hit the ball well, we bunted well and we played solid defense at Cleveland. If we can do what we did there against Cleveland, we can do well against Madison Central.” The Lady Vikes will have to face Madison Central ace Kelly Young (3-2, 2.39 ERA, 55 strikeouts). She shut down WC in the final three innings in a 15-2 romp at Lucy Young Field. Katie Busby has no problem with the matchup “I like hitting against her,” Busby said of Kelly.

Family friend John Descoteaux says Ward, 79, died at a Boston hospital Wednesday, one day after she was taken off life support. She had gone into cardiac arrest in January and stopped breathing for more than 30 minutes. In “The Fighter,” Ward is portrayed as a bleach-blond, boozy, lovingly domineering mother to boxers Micky Ward and his half-brother, Dicky Eklund. Micky Ward rose from his bluecollar roots and overcame ugly squabbling with his relatives to earn a boxing title shot in 2000, when he was in his mid-30s. Rev. David Wilkerson — The founding pastor of Times Square Church in New York City and author of the best-selling book, “The Cross and the Switchblade,” has died. Wilkerson, 79, died Wednesday afternoon in a car accident in East Texas, Texas Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Tela Mange said. Wilkerson’s car smashed head-on into a tractor-trailer rig after veering into oncoming traffic on U.S. 175 west of Cuney, about 95 miles southeast of Dallas, Mange said.
Budapest names small park after Elvis Budapest’s city council has approved a plan to name a small park after Elvis Presley in commemoration of The King’s support for Hungary’s anti-Soviet revolution of 1956. Budapest mayor Istvan Tarlos said Wednesday that a plot near the Margaret Bridge will be called Elvis Presley Park to honour the singer’s “sincere sympathy” toward the short-lived uprising. On Jan. 6, 1957, during his last appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” Elvis sang a gospel standard, “Peace in the Valley,” which Sullivan said reflected the singer’s concern for Hungarians’ plight after the uprising. Sullivan said Elvis wanted people to make donations to be sent to Hungary. The site in Buda, separated from Pest by the Danube River, was chosen in voting held last month on the city website.
Holmes settles lawsuit with magazine Katie Holmes has settled her lawsuit with the publishers of Star magazine over a cover story that insinuated she was a drug addict. The magazine published an apology to the actress Wednesday on the cover and inside its May 9 issue, saying it “did not intend to suggest that Ms. Holmes was a drug addict or was undergoing treatment for drug addiction.” “In a recent issue of Star, we published headlines about Katie Holmes that could be read to Katie suggest that she was addicted to drugs,” the Holmes apology read. “Star apologizes to Ms. Holmes for any misperception and will be making a substantial donation to charity on Ms. Holmes’ behalf for any harm that we may have caused.” Holmes’ publicist, Ina Treciokas, said that American Media Inc. gave a sizable donation to Dizzy Feet Foundation, an organization that takes dance to underprivileged children.

MTV President Stephen Friedman said in a statement that “smart and funny is the new rock Jason ’n’ roll” for the network’s audience, and that SuSudeikis deikis fits that combination. The 35-year-old Sudeikis is in his sixth season on NBC’s “SNL.” He co-stars in the upcoming comedy “Horrible Bosses.”

Crunchy turnpike: Crash spills cereal A crash on the Ohio Turnpike spilled hundreds of boxes of breakfast cereal, authorities said. The accident in the Toledo area shut down the toll highway’s eastbound traffic for nearly three hours early Wednesday. Bulldozers cleared away the mess. State troopers said the driver of the tractor-trailer hauling the cereal may have fallen asleep at the wheel before his truck hit a guardrail around 2 a.m. and wound up on its side across both eastbound lanes. A tow truck then slammed into the semi. The semi driver was taken to a Toledo hospital with injuries that were not life threatening.
DOWN TO THE WIRE William, Kate tie up loose ends before the big day LONDON (AP) — Practice makes perfect: Kate Middleton and her bridesmaids, together with best man Prince Harry, rehearsed one more time at Westminster Abbey today, the eve of the most anticipated royal wedding in decades. But politics intruded on Friday’s royal nuptials, with Britain withdrawing its invitation to Syria’s ambassador to condemn the violent crackdown on protesters there that has left hundreds dead. The rehearsal — the second in as many days — came as Middleton and Prince William released a message in their wedding program, saying they were deeply touched by the outpouring of affection toward them. “We are both so delighted that you are able to join us in celebrating what we hope will be one of the happiest days of our lives,” they wrote. “The affection shown to us by so many people during our engagement has been incredibly moving, and has touched us both deeply.” They also released a new photograph taken by celebrity photographer Mario Testino — a warm black-and-white image of a comforting snuggle. Friday’s wedding will offer pomp and circumstance on a grand scale, with 1,900 invited guests, royal carriages and mounted troops of the Household Calvary. Rows of bold red, white and blue Union Jacks have been unfurled and street cleaners have scrubbed the pavement. Thousands of people are expected along the parade route Friday, a snaking path less than a mile from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace, where the new royal couple will appear on the balcony for a kiss watched by millions around the world. Westminster Abbey itself has been transformed into a blooming forest, with six field maples and two hornbeams lining the aisle leading up to the altar.
Paris Hilton, boyfriend accosted at courthouse LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police arrested a man who tried to grab the boyfriend of Paris Hilton as the couple arrived Wednesday at a courthouse to testify against a suspect in an attempted break-in at her home last year. An Associated Press photographer and reporters interviewing the couple saw the man appear to get a hand on the neck of Cy Waits before being seized by a bodyguard and taken away. James Rainford, 36, was arrested on Paris suspicion of Hilton misdemeanor battery on a person and was being held on $20,000 bail. The incident occurred as Hilton and Waits walked into a Superior Court building in Van Nuys to testify against Nathan Parada, 31, who is charged with attempted first-degree felony burglary. Hilton posted on her Twitter account that a “psycho intruder just punched Cy in the back of the head as we were walking into the court house.” She and Waits testified about being awakened by a man banging on a window at her home last August. They left the courthouse without further incident. Police Detective Kevin Romine testified that Parada told him and his partner that he had left a halfway house in Redlands, Calif., several days before going to Hilton’s home with the intention of robbing it. Parada told police he found the Hollywood Hills house after purchasing a map of stars’ homes.

ists, anti-monarchists, protesters and hooligans who might blight the royal spectacle.
A wide range of police will be on patrol: officers on motorcycles, escort specialists, dog handlers, search officers, mounted police, protection officers and firearms units. Scotland Yard Police Commander Christine Jones said there has been no new terror threat but considerable Internet chatter. “Our operation has been meticulously planned, and we have thought through and planned for a huge range of contingencies,” she said. But it wouldn’t be a wedding without a tussle over the guest list. Britain revoked a royal wedding invitation to Syrian Ambassador Sami Khiyami because of violent attacks on protesters by the regime there. More than 450 people have been killed since last month in the uprising against President Bashar Assad’s authoritarian regime, with 120 dead over the weekend.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Don’t treat indifferently any of your hunches about things that could transpire in the near future. Act on them. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Your hopes and the things you envision are actually achievable. It’s OK to elevate your expectations, as well as ignore those people who want to throw a wet blanket on them. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If you believe you can operate with greater efficacy on your own, by all means don’t hesitate. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It’ll be worthwhile to maintain harmonious, civil relationships with co-workers, even if you have to keep your opinions and methods to yourself. Placate them with what they want to hear. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Don’t be hesitant to take a calculated risk on something you have thoroughly thought out, because conditions that have a direct effect on your career and earnings look quite good. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If your mate seems to be a bit testy, pamper him or her a bit more than you usually do. It’ll calm down your soul mate and let things get back to normal once again. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If you take plenty of time to analyze and carefully study an important issue, all of its ramifications will eventually become clear. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Your optimism allows you to see the brighter side of people and the involvements you have with them. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Go ahead and depend on your perceptions. Your mind is even more creative than usual, and will find workable ways to add to your resources. Give them a try.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: My church frowns upon extracurricular activities because the elders believe that they waste time that could be spent on homework and religious study. I will be entering high school soon and want to participate in athletics, but my parents, who are very religious, won’t let me. It won’t do any good to talk to a counselor or the principal because my parents won’t change their minds. I like my church, but I don’t agree with the “no extracurricular” stuff. I know that you are a former high school basketball coach and a high school principal. Do you think that extracurricular activities at school are beneficial? — Nameless, Phoenix. Nameless: My personal feeling is that a well-balanced extracurricular program is of great benefit to students — so long as class work and other obligations don’t suffer because of these activities. Time spent on the practice field, attending a play, marching with the band or honing skills in the chess club could help create a well-rounded person. However, there are many productive ways to spend one’s time, including religious study. I recommend that — if you can’t change your parents’ minds or your pastor’s — you accept their decision against extracurricular participation gracefully. Your church asks a great deal of its members, and sacrifice is part of most religious belief. Great spiritual rewards come from great sacrifice. Dr. Wallace: What is the average age for teens to have their first sexual experience? My aunt is telling my mother that it’s 14 and that because I’m 14 she should keep an eye on me. I’ve got a lot of friends,
and at times we talk about sex. All of us are 13 and 14, and none of us has admitted to having a sexual experience. Sometimes parents make things look worse than they really are. — Nameless, Monmouth, Ill. Nameless: According to the American Medical Association, the average age for a first sexual encounter is 16. The AMA also reports that about 1 million unwed U.S. teenage girls become pregnant each year. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@ Copley News Service.
nique. If he has done it before and your wife had no objection, then it’s not surprising he did it a second time. What would she like you to do — challenge him to a duel? If she felt the gesture was inappropriate, then she shouldn’t have offered her hand to him a second time. Dear Abby: My friend says if it weren’t for sex, you wouldn’t have enough material to write your column. I disagree, and
have told him that you could still do your columns. What say you? — Tom and Jerry in Cincinnati Dear Tom and Jerry: I say I could — but it wouldn’t be as much fun.

Hypothyroidism poses many other health risks Dear Dr. Gott: Quite a while ago, you published a letter from a person who inquired about hypothyroidism with a TSH level of 6.7. Hypothyroidism is rampant in my family. I think it is important to identify the consequences of untreated hypothyroidism, which include a greater likelihood of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and early-onset dementia. Also, it is worthwhile to note that the European standards for diagnosing hypothyroidism are much narrower than in this country. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists issued a paper in 2002, stating that anyone with a TSH of three or higher should be treated. And then there is the issue of treating with a natural source of thyroid, such as Armour thyroid, versus treating with a synthetic form, such as levothyroxin. In a study done in another country, 60 percent of people with hypothyroidism felt better when taking both T3 and T4, compared to taking just T4. Thank you for the helpful information in your column. Dear Reader: Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) can be a somewhat complex issue. The area about which you have written, subclinical thyroid disease, is particularly complicated. Until adequate scientific studies have been performed, it will continue to be difficult to determine at what levels treatment should be given when levels fall within those gray areas. You are correct in that there are very real and sometimes serious consequences in not treating hypothyroidism. These can include heart disease, goiter (enlarged thyroid gland), infertility, peripheral neuropathy and myxedema (cold intolerance, drowsiness, profound lethargy and unconsciousness). These are most commonly associated with long-term uncontrolled hypothyroidism. Women with untreated hypothyroidsm who are pregnant, have a higher risk of having a child with birth defects. The child might also be more likely to have serious developmental and intellectual problems.
ASK THE DOCTOR Dr. PETER
Dear Dr. Gott: I strongly disagree with your readers who want short answers to more questions. The reason I read your column and recommend it to others is because you provide such thorough answers. That reader and the “we all” he or she refers to are either not aware of the complexity of many conditions or they have a short attention span. Please don’t stop helping those of us who crave complete and useful information. I think your solution is perfect: An occasional “quickies” column to respond to simple questions to which you can provide brief responses. Dear Reader: Thank you for the compliment. You are correct that many health concerns are complex. Added to that, many people don’t want to take prescription medications if alternatives or home remedies will be beneficial, so in simply describing treatment options, several paragraphs of my limited space can be used.
