Warren County added to federal storm aid request By Danny Barrett Jr. dbarrett@vicksburgpost.com

vikiNg ACE

Warren County was among three counties added to the state’s request for a federal disaster declaration in the wake of Saturday’s tornado — the deadliest in Mississippi since 1992. Heavily-damaged Yazoo and

Choctaw counties, along with Warren, Attala and Holmes, could receive an array of assistance for individuals and local government if a federal declaration is approved. Food, clothing, rental assistance and relief for uninsured and underinsured storm victims would become available for individuals. Also, counties might

be reimbursed for overtime expenses and debris cleanup. Saturday’s tornado tracked 149.25 miles across Mississippi from Warren to Oktibbeha counties, the fourthlongest track for a twister in the state, as per the National Weather Service and the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency. The tornado

formed just west of Tallulah, La., making the overall track nearly 180 miles. Wind speeds of the EF-4 tornado peaked at 170 miles per hour in Yazoo County. Ten deaths in Mississippi were attributed to the storm, which has been measured to be the widest ever

Fort Worth Country Day School seventh-grader Brianna Beckman, 12, makes a gravestone

rubbing at the Vicksburg National Cemetery Wednesday.

By Pamela Hitchins phitchins@vicksburgpost.com When two motor coaches pulled up to the Cairo Museum at the Vicksburg National Military Park Wednesday, 47 adolescent girls streamed from one, 37 boys from the other. Asked if the grouping was intentional, Tara Forrest, the students’ American history teacher, said with a smile, “We’ve worked with seventhgraders for a while now. We’ve

figured out what works best.” The Fort Worth Country Day School students are living their history lessons in Vicksburg this week, going back to a time when trials were held at what is now the Old Court House Museum, wealthy civilians lived in gracious antebellum homes and nearly everyone took shelter in caves during Civil War shelling. After getting off the buses, the students gathered first beneath the Cairo’s flagpole, then at

the national cemetery’s. They watched respectfully while eight of their classmates raised the flags under the direction of park Chief of Operations Rick Martin and seven of the girls sang the national anthem. Then they fanned out to check out the cemetery and get rubbings from the stones on Union soldiers’ graves. This is the fifth year that Forrest has traveled with stuSee Students, Page A9.

Ban on funding abortions sent to governor By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — Mississippi lawmakers on Wednesday sent Gov. Haley Barbour a bill to ban public funding for most abortions, a move that critics said is unnecessary because it repeats what’s been in state law the past eight years. The House voted 88-25 to remove a procedural hold that had been placed on the bill Saturday. The vote was the final bit of business for the 2010 regular legislative session that started in early January, went until late March and resumed for a few days over the past week. Senators have been gone since Friday, but the abortion bill brought the House to the Capitol on Saturday and Wednesday. Barbour spokesman Dan Turner said the governor will sign the bill. It will prohibit public funding of abortion in any health exchanges that will be created once all parts of a federal health care law are in place in 2014. Supporters said they thought it was important for the state to respond to See Abortion, Page A9.

Traffic backs up in the 2400 block of Oak Ridge Road Wednesday morning as emergency personnel work at the scene of a wreck. Nancy Graham, 44, 8570 Oak Ridge Road, was southbound at 8:47 a.m. in a 1996 Chevrolet Lumina when she stopped behind a garbage truck. D.W. Duggins Jr., 82, 11 Rolling Hill Drive, told Warren County Deputy Chris Satcher he did not realize Graham had stopped and his vehicle, a 2005 Buick LeSabre, rear ended hers. No one was injured. Harrison St., said Lt. Bobby Stewart. “Upon running the VIN (vehicle identification number), we found the vehi-

At 4:15 p.m., four rifles, a .22-caliber Ruger handgun and a 19-inch flat-screen TV valued at $300 were reported stolen from a home in the 200 block of Culkin Road, county records showed. In the city, a Sony CD player valued at $150 was reported stolen from a 1986 Ford Bronco in the 300 block of North Poplar Street at 7:58 a.m., Lt. Bobby Stewart said.

About a half hour later, a DeWalt pressure washer valued at $1,300 was reported stolen from a utility room at a home in the 1000 block of First East Street.

City pays firefighters who subbed in Yazoo City From staff reports At a special called meeting Wednesday, the Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen OK’d up to 13 hours of overtime pay for five firefighters who spent Sunday covering the Yazoo City Fire Department while it assisted residents following Saturday’s tornado. The assistance was requested Saturday, said Mayor Paul Winfield, and the five firefighters were given the OK to go according to the State Mutual Aid Compact. SMAC allows municipalities to authorize emergency spending in neighboring communities if aid is requested, and then later ratify the action in a formal meeting.

Vicksburg has been a participating SMAC community since 2002. Also Wednesday, the board renewed a state of emergency concerning an unstable water main beneath Washington and Jackson streets. The 36-inch water pipe, which is a vital link of the city’s water service to its 10,000 customers, was temporarily stabilized following a March 26 land shift near the developing U.S. Army Corps of Engineers interpretive museum. The city plans to reroute the pipe one block around the site of the shift at Washington Street via Main, Walnut and Jackson streets, and last week hired an engineer to get the project under contract. The Corps has agreed to pay

for the relocation. Wednesday’s action was a formality, said the board, as the original emergency declaration was only good for 30 days. Public Works Director Bubba Rainer has estimated

the pipe will be rerouted in about 30 working days once the work is under way. The city’s emergency declaration allows officials to obtain quotes on the work instead of advertising for bids.

In closed session, the board OK’d one re-hire in the accounting department, and discussed two personnel issues in the parks and recreation maintenance department.

Wrestlers to share take with tornado victims Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, or TNA, has joined the American Red Cross, Mississippi Blood Services and Mississippi Emergency Management Agency to help raise money for tornado victims in Warren County and across the state during their Vicksburg show set for Friday evening and Greenwood show on Saturday night. “The Charismatic Enigma”Jeff Hardy, “The

Oil leak more critical than expected

Jackson lawyer tapped for federal bench post

By Cain Burdeau The Associated Press

JACKSON (AP) — President Barack Obama has nominated a Mississippi lawyer to the federal bench. The White House said Wednesday that Carlton W. Reeves has been nominated to a post on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi. The nomination requires U.S. Senate confirmation. Reeves is a partner in the law firm of Piggot Reeves Johnson, P.A., in Jackson. He

‘We’ll take help from anyone’ in cleanup, BP chief operating officer says NEW ORLEANS — A massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is even worse than believed and as the government grows concerned that the rig’s operator is ill-equipped to contain it, officials are offering a military response to try to avert a massive environmental disaster along the ecologically fragile U.S. coastline. Speaking today on NBC, an executive for BP PLC, which operated the oil rig that exploded and sank last week, said the company would welcome help from the U.S. military. “We’ll take help from anyone,” BP Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said. But time could be running out. Not only was a third leak discovered — which government officials said is spewing five times as much oil

Time could be running out. Not only was a third leak discovered — which government officials said is spewing five times as much oil into the water than originally estimated — but it might be closer to shore than previously known, and could have oil washing up on shore by Friday. into the water than originally estimated — but it might be closer to shore than previously known, and could have oil washing up on shore by Friday. At the same time, there appeared to be a rift developing between BP and the Coast Guard, which is overseeing the increasingly desperate operation to contain the spill and clean it up.

BILOXI, Miss. — A Biloxi High School student has been charged with a felony after he struggled to get his cell phone back from an assistant principal. Police arrested Dreyon Drakkar Jackson, 18, Tuesday, charging him with simple assault on a school official. Jackson was held on a $5,000 bond.

rels a day of sweet crude, not the 1,000 barrels officials had estimated for days since the Deepwater Horizons drilling rig exploded and sank 50 miles off the Louisiana Coast. Suttles disputed at the same news conference with Landry that the amount of oil spilling into the water had ballooned — or at the company wasn’t able to contain it. But early today, he said on NBC that the leak might be as high as the government’s new estimate. He said there was no way to measure the flow at the seabed and estimates have to

come from seeing how much oil makes it to the surface. “Using the satellite imagery and our overflights, we can now say it looks like it’s more than a thousand. It’s a range,” Suttles said. He said the range was up to 5,000 barrels a day. The Secretary of Homeland Security has briefed President Barack Obama and the government has offered to have the Department of Defense use its equipment to help contain the spill, Landry said. “It has become clear after several unsuccessful attempts to determine the cause” that agencies must supplement what’s being done by the company, she said. This all played out at the end of a long day as crews began an experiment to burn off parts of the slick. Landry said the controlled, test burn was successful late Wednesday afternoon.

Many immigrants are an asset to America One would expect former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to have a thoughtful approach to the immigration issue. Both his father, George Romney, and his grandfather, Gaskell Romney, were born in Mexico. His great-grandfather, Miles Park Romney, fled the United States and crossed the southern border in 1884 to escape religious persecution. So this family knows what it’s like to have to leave your country behind and gamble on the promise of brighter days down the road. Romney hit the right notes during a recent radio interview when he claimed that U.S. immigration policy isn’t just broken, but upside down. We have plenty of illegal immigrants doing lowskilled work, he said. And yet we make it hard for people who come to the United States legally to study or work to remain here and

become productive members of society. So true. People from around the world come to study in U.S. universities on temporary visas. They often excel in class and earn their degrees with ease. But after graduation, many of them beat a path back to their home countries. Just when these people enter their high-productivity years — when they generate income, consume goods and pay taxes — we send them home. It doesn’t make any sense. CEOs of high-tech companies have pleaded with Congress to increase the annual allotment of H-1B visas for high-skilled workers. Currently, only about 65,000 H-1B visas are granted each year. That number is shamefully low for a country of 300 million people. And that’s just to get here. Staying is another ordeal. Some CEOs say that, when an international student gradu-

20 YEARS AGO: 1990

ates from a four-year institution or graduate program, he or she should get a green card stapled to the diploma. Aren’t these exactly the kind of people we should be trying to attract to our shores and retain once they get here? At the very least, Congress should make it easier for legal immigrants to become U.S. citizens. If this sounds like common sense, we’re glad. It doesn’t to everyone. Believe it or not, there is — in this land of immigrants — a well-organized lobby working to keep legal immigrants out of the country right along with the illegal variety. This is wasted energy. In our eagerness to rid the country of illegal immigration, we must not make the mistake of also getting rid of one of our most valuable imports and greatest hopes for economic prosperity: legal immigrants.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler

Tennessee’s Corker fighting uphill battle for balance If anyone in the messy financialregulatory reform fight deserves laurels, it’s Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn. — for tireless efforts to achieve bipartisanship and “balanced” legislation, and for being willing to call out both Democrats and his fellow Republicans for excessive rhetoric. Not only — but perhaps partly — because of Corker’s importuning, the Senate might actually produce a bipartisan bill, though only after weeks of over-the-top finger-pointing. Recently, the former Chattanooga mayor went to the Senate floor to chide “both sides of the aisle” for “trying to herd their folks with language that ... I don’t think does justice to this issue, which is very important, very difficult and much needed in our country.” Corker especially took on his own side for charging that “orderly liquidation” language would prop up toobig-to-fail banks. “That’s not true,” he said. He said he could not support the base Democratic bill because, as he told others and me in interviews, it had “a leftward tilt.” But he said most flaws in the bill could be fixed “in five minutes.” If it had been up to Corker, financial services reform would have been addressed a lot earlier and a lot more smoothly.

MORTON

KONDRACKE

On March 10, Dodd backed off, pleading that his agreements with Corker were losing Democrats on his committee without guaranteeing any other GOP votes. Corker said he suspects the White House also influenced Dodd.

Corker started working on financial reform last March, teaming up with Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., to conduct more than a dozen deep-dive seminars with financial experts on the origins of the crisis and potential solutions. Last summer, the two co-sponsored a stopgap bill — in case Congress proved unable to produce comprehensive legislation — to empower the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. to close down too-big-to-fail banks that might take the country to the brink of ruin. The House passed its version of financial services reform in December — on a straight party-line vote — about the time that negotiations to produce a bipartisan Senate bill broke down. Senate Banking Chairman Chris Dodd, D-Conn., had been working

with ranking member Richard Shelby, R-Ala., but their talks reached an impasse and Dodd produced his own draft bill. At a committee hearing, Corker said he “begged” Dodd not to abandon negotiations because “the Banking Committee has been one of the few places in the Senate where there wasn’t that much partisanship, where you could (legislate) like a senator.” Instead of going the party-line route — at least then — Dodd formed four bipartisan panels to work on elements of the bill, with Corker and Warner assigned to handle the issues of “systemic risk” and “resolution” of troubled banks. Dodd and Shelby were working on hot-button consumer-protection language, but their talks again broke down in February and Dodd asked

Corker on Feb. 9 to negotiate on a broad range of issues. In late-night, seven-day-a-week talks between the senators and their staffs, “we got to the 5-yard line,” Corker told me. But on March 10, Dodd backed off, pleading that his agreements with Corker were losing Democrats on his committee without guaranteeing any other GOP votes. Corker said he suspects the White House also influenced Dodd. Dodd introduced his own bill, which “took a pretty big leftward slant” on consumer protection and grants of flexibility to regulators on whether to shut down troubled banks, Corker said. Dodd said he’d get his bill out of committee on a party-line vote — the 1,300-page measure was approved in 21 minutes on March 22 — and then try to negotiate a bipartisan bill before it went to the Senate floor. That process was proceeding fitfully until Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., abruptly announced the measure would go to the floor this month — presumably to embarrass a few Republicans into supporting the bill. Corker said there are important flaws in the bill — especially the absence of underwriting standards for mortgages. Until 1982, he noted, bor-

rowers were required to put at least 10 percent down and, in a default, lenders could demand full repayment of a loan. Also, nothing in the bill will regulate housing giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, now in hock for $400 billion and having new mortgages dumped on them daily by the banks. Corker and Warner’s major idea is still in the bill: If a big bank fails, the government will “wind down these firms, sell off the assets, make sure the stockholders are absolute toast ... (and) make sure it’s so painful that nobody wants to go through this.” The biggest quandary of all emanating from the current crisis is how to get the smartest young people in America to get into productive work, instead of inventing synthetic financial instruments that have no social value. Corker, who used to build shopping centers and office buildings that he could drive by with pride, admitted he had no answer to that. Who does, if bonuses at Goldman Sachs still run in the hundreds of millions of dollars? •

Study: Seniors not choosing quality health plans Two workers missing The study being released today by Avalere Health, a major consulting firm, looked at the health plans in mine ceiling collapse

pick, according to the plans’ scores on a government rating system designed for consumers. The ratings, available on Medicare’s website, assign one to five stars for quality, with one signifying poor performance and five excellent. The analysis found that 47 percent of Medicare beneficiaries are in plans that rate

three stars or two — medium to fair quality. Just 23 percent were signed up in plans that rate four or five stars — very good to excellent quality. Many of the rest were in plans not yet rated. “There is obviously a wide variance in performance,” said Dan Mendelson, president of Avalere, which specializes in

CHICAGO (AP) — Bria Fleming has been through a lot in the last year, including her mother’s hospitalization and job loss and a fire in their home. It’d be enough to get most 18-year-olds down. But the black high school student is surprisingly optimistic about the future and her chances for a better life — an attitude common among her African-American peers, according to a new nationwide survey of high school students. “I know kids who’ve been through less and maybe they can’t handle it,” said Fleming, who’ll head to Florida A&M University in the fall in hopes of eventually becoming a veterinarian. “But my mom always tells me, ‘Work

hard, stay positive and you’ll make it.’” A poll released today by Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., found that 70 percent of black students ages 15 to 18 thought their standard of living would be better than their parents, compared with just 36 percent of white students. Overall, 39 percent of respondents thought they would have a higher living standard. Those numbers and the level of optimism among black students appeared to be closely tied to their enthusiasm for President Barack Obama, making for what some called the “Obama effect.” Asked about the president’s performance, more than twothirds of black students rated

his performance as “good” or “very good,” compared with 23 percent of white students. Overall, about a quarter of the students who were surveyed rated the president highly. DeQuan Foster, a 15-yearold high school sophomore in Newark, N.J., agreed that having someone who looks like him leading the country has strongly influenced his belief in the future and what he can personally achieve. “You’re always told anything is possible — but when you see it, you believe it. It makes me want to try twice as hard,” said Foster, who’s active in the theater and his local Boys & Girls Club and hopes to start his own entertainment company after college.

Evansville Courier & Press. She said the accident happened late Wednesday. Calls to mine operator Alliance Coal Company were not immediately answered. Miller said he was called early today by a woman who had received a call from the mine. The woman said she was told her husband and her son, who were working in the mine, were safe, but that two other miners were missing. Miller described a rock fall as a ceiling collapse, usually in an isolated area. He said the Dotiki Mine is a large operation that employs more than 300 miners.

PROVIDENCE, Kentucky (AP) — Two coal miners were missing today after an underground rock fall in western Kentucky, the mine and a union representative said. Tim Miller from the United Mine Workers Union said at least two others escaped when a ceiling collapsed at the Dotiki mine near Providence, about 150 miles west of Louisville. Miller described it as a large underground coal mine. “Rescue operations were initiated immediately, but efforts to contact the miners have been unsuccessful,” a spokeswoman for the mine told the

crunching health care data for government and industry. “These ratings are about to become much more important. When you start linking quality to payment, you can bet the plans are going to be very motivated to bring the scores up.” For years, private plans have enjoyed generous payments from the government, currently averaging 9 percent more than the cost of care in traditional Medicare. The government’s benevolence enabled most plans to offer lower out-of-pocket costs and extra benefits, compared with traditional Medicare. About 11 million seniors are signed up, nearly one-fourth of Medicare recipients.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Millions of seniors signed up for popular Medicare Advantage insurance plans don’t get the best quality, an independent study found. How the private plans score on a rating system set up by the government is about to have a direct impact on insurers — not to mention seniors’ benefits and premiums. President Barack Obama’s health care law ties what the plans get paid by the government to the quality they provide, for the first time. There seems to be plenty of room for improvement. The study being released today by Avalere Health, a major consulting firm, looked at the health plans that seniors

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve sounded a more confident note Wednesday that the economy is strengthening but pledged to hold rates at record lows to make sure it gains traction. Wrapping up a two-day meeting, the Fed in a 9-1 decision retained its pledge to hold rates at historic lows for an “extended period.” Doing so will help energize the recovery. The Fed offered a more upbeat view of the economy even as it noted that risks remain. It said the job market is “beginning to improve,” an upgrade from its last meeting in mid-March. It observed then that the unemployment situation was merely “stabilizing.” The Fed also noted that consumer spending has “picked up,” an improvement from its last observation that spending was expanding at a “moderate pace.” Even with the economic gains, the Fed noted reasons

High unemployment, sluggish income gains and tight credit are still dampening consumer spending, a major contributor to economic activity. Commercial real estate remains fragile. And though housing activity has edged up, it is still at depressed levels. Bank lending continues to shrink. to be cautious. High unemployment, sluggish income gains and tight credit are still dampening consumer spending, a major contributor to economic activity. Commercial real estate remains fragile. And though housing activity has edged up, it is still at depressed levels. Bank lending continues to shrink. The Fed’s statement included nothing that would lead most economists to move up their forecasts for when the central bank will start raising rates. The soonest the Fed will do so is the fourth quarter, 34 of 44 leading economists polled told The Associated Press in a recent survey. “The Fed did upgrade its

time considered responsible for having to pay back those loans? — Reader, via e-mail A: You’re stuck — 18-yearolds are responsible for necessities, and it’s hard to argue that college tuition is not a necessity. In addition, you mentioned that you couldn’t graduate until the bills were paid. However, your college tuition was paid by the student loans. While you may be able to negotiate some kind of a settlement, there is little doubt in my mind that even though this much time has elapsed, you are still obligated to pay. •

He’s also expressed concern that low rates could eventually unleash inflation. And Hoenig says he worries that keeping the “extended period” pledge will limit the Fed’s stated “flexibility” to start modestly bumping up rates. The Fed’s brighter assessment helped give a modest lift to stocks. The Dow Jones industrials gained about 53 points, an increase of 0.48 percent. Prices for Treasurys slipped further after the Fed’s statement. The yield on the 10-year note, which moves inversely to its price, edged up to 3.77 percent, from 3.75 percent just before the announcement. The Fed has held its target range for its bank lending rate between zero and 0.25 percent, where it’s remained since December 2008. In response, commercial banks’ prime lending rate, used to peg rates on certain credit cards and consumer loans, has stayed about 3.25 percent.

Foreclsoure notices go up State oil company Odyssey on Coast, down in Jackson files Chapter 11 bankruptcy GULFPORT (AP) — The number of homeowners along the Mississippi Gulf Coast in danger of losing their residences jumped sharply during the first three months of 2010, according to a report released today. Irvine, Calif.-based RealtyTrac, which tracks foreclosure actions nationwide, said that 369 foreclosure-related notices went out during the first quarter in Gulfport-Biloxi, a 195 percent increase from the fourth quarter of 2009. One in every 287 housing units was targeted in that market for some sort of action ranging from an initial notice of default to outright confis-

cation and sale by a lender. RealtyTrac, in its quarterly summary of 206 metropolitan areas with at least 200,000 people, did not break down the numbers into the various legal notices required before an owner loses property. Gulfport-Biloxi ranked 137th nationwide, RealtyTrac said. At the same time, RealtyTrac reported a first-quarter drop in foreclosure-related notices in the Jackson area. There were 305 filings affecting one in every 731 housing units, a 30 percent reduction from the fourth quarter of 2009, ranking Jackson 183rd, RealtyTrac said.

Simplicity, Graco cribs recalled WASHINGTON (AP) — The government recalled thousands of Simplicity and Graco cribs today, warning that babies could suffocate or strangle in them. The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the Simplicity recall was linked to at least one death and involved thousands of cribs, possibly hundreds of thousands, though many had previously been recalled for other defects. The agency said about 217,000 Graco dropside cribs made by LaJobi were also being recalled. The problem with both types of cribs stems from hardware failures. In the case of the Graco-

PUCKETT, Miss. (AP) — Odyssey Petroleum Corp. U.S. says it has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, hoping for a break from creditors while it sorts out financial difficulties. The company owes almost $2 million to its largest creditors, including more than $1 million for an arbitration award and about $129,000 to the Internal Revenue Service. Odyssey said in a statement this week that it’s negotiating with several parties to obtain

new funding, though it did not release any details. Odyssey is a wholly owned subsidiary of a Canadian company that engages in the acquisition, exploration, and development of oil and gas properties. The company owns five fields in Mississippi, including ones in Rankin, Smith and Scott counties. The case was filed April 23 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of Mississippi.

branded wood cribs, the side that moves up and down — the dropside — can break or detach, creating a dangerous gap between the crib mattress and dropped side. A baby can become trapped and suffocate or strangle. CPSC and LaJobi have received 99 complaints of dropside problems with the cribs. None involved serious injuries. The Simplicity recall is for all full-sized cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames. Those frames can bend or detach, causing the mattress to collapse and creating a space that a baby can roll into, become trapped in and suffocate.

SmArT mOnEy Q: I went to college 18 years ago. I had to take out loans for my education. When I purchased my home, it showed up on my credit report that I still owed my student loans, plus 18 years of interest. I thought this was bruce. paid off by my parents. I don’t know how I would have been able to graduate if there was an outstanding debt owed to the college. Is someone who was 18 years old at the

assessment of the economy, but clearly there is too much headwind for the recovery” for the Fed to signal any plans to boost rates, said Sung Won Sohn, economist at California State University. Thomas Hoenig, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, for the third straight meeting was the sole member to dissent from the Fed’s decision to retain the “extended period” pledge. Hoenig has said he fears keeping rates too low for too long could lead to excessive risk-taking by investors, feeding new speculative bubbles in the prices of stocks, bonds and commodities.

enue from rentals. A total of 45 events were held at the convention center and auditorium in January, February and March, he said. Though that was fewer than the 54 events held during the first quarter of the fiscal year, revenues were much higher. The convention center posted income totaling about $135,000 during the second quarter — 26 percent higher than budget estimates — and held expenses even with the budget. It was a welcome shift from the first quarter, when revenues were 44 percent below budget, and it brought year to date revenues within 1 percent of expectations, said Gawronski. Along with banquet and conference bookings, March business also included the annual Mississippi Organization for Associate Degree Nursing convention, which drew 2,000 attendees and 100 exhibitors to the convention center for three days. Rising country artist Jayme Johnson also packed nearly 1,000 fans into the auditorium during March. Auditorium revenues were 34 percent over budget in the second quarter, which raised year to date earnings to 20 percent over budget at the midway point — $53,327 total, compared to the $33,500 expected. “It doesn’t sound like a lot of money,” acknowledged Gawronski, “but those numbers at the auditorium have always been modest, and we’re jumping them exponentially.” Four Curious George Live! shows over a two-day period in February sold a total of 1,721 tickets, while 1,800 tickets were sold for Larry the Cable Guy’s January show. While the shows were not sold out and did not make much money for the promoters, Gawronski said they boosted revenues at the convention center. The better-than-expected revenue was much needed, considering the bed tax continues to bring in less than expected. The tax was lagging 10 percent behind budget projections at the end of the second quarter — with $175,199 collected compared to $220,000 budgeted.

dents. Student field trips are less common now due to tighter budgets and school schedules. Forrest said she believes the trips are far more enriching than classroom studies. “Kids need to be actively involved in what they’re learning and make connections,” she said. “The better the connections, the more they learn and remember what they’ve learned.” Along with Forrest and her students, three parent chaperones and seven faculty and staff are in Vickburg for the four-day lesson. The agenda includes visits to the Riverfront Murals, Tara Wildlife Preserve and Linden Plantation and tours of historic homes. The students will stage a trial in the Old Court House, eat a plantation dinner on the museum grounds, hold a debate on slavery and listen to a Civil War musical review at the Southern Cultural Heritage Center. “It’s experiential education, not textbook education,” said headmaster Evan Peterson. The 1,110-student school provides a class trip annually for each grade, the cost included in tuition

and activity fees. “Teach kids by living — that’s my philosophy of education.” Each student has had a part to play or presentation to make, based on research conducted at school. Some have spoken at battlefield monuments, some at the cemetery, some have portrayed lawyers or jurors, some soldiers. They’re allowed to use note cards, but nothing has been scripted, Forrest said, not even the trial. Brianna Beckman, 13, was one of several students dressed in period costume who spoke Wednesday about the cemetery. One thing she learned, she said, was that a camel is buried somewhere on the grounds. Brianna said studying the war and seeing all the graves in the cemetery has convinced her that “it’s kind of scary. If there was a war in Fort Worth, where I live, I’d be scared.” While no one in her family is currently in the military, Jefferson Davis is a distant relative, she said. A “Time For Kids” survey revealed that only 15 percent of students choose history as their favorite subject, but Forrest’s students get to see beyond the usual names and dates. “I love it,” said 13-year-old Caleb Braswell. “I love learning about

A9 what happened a long time ago. My favorite is ancient Roman history because they didn’t have the same kind of stuff that we have. They had more sickness, and they didn’t have the advantages that we have.” Caleb said while in Vicksburg he has learned more about the city’s importance as a Civil War battle site, its fortifications and how its people adapted during the siege. Kennedy Stoball, 13, also made a presentation on the national cemetery. “I like history a lot because you learn about people who lived a long time ago, about your ancestors. Then you can go out and create history yourself.” Not every day is living history and the fun of travel. There is still studying, research and essays to write. “A trip like this makes it more special,” Kennedy said. Forrest will herd the kids back on the buses and head back to Texas Friday afternoon, but hopes to come back next year. “In an economy of cutbacks, I hope living history is not something that’s cut back,” Forrest said. “I love Vicksburg — I love the people here who are so gracious and so giving. I love bringing my kids here to experience that, even more, maybe, than the history.”

Abortion Continued from Page A1. the recently enacted federal law. Critics called the bill political pandering because Mississippi has had a law since 2002 that prohibits any federal, state or local tax dollars from being used for most elective abortions.

Senators passed the bill unanimously Friday. The House passed it 75-32 Saturday before an opponent held it for more debate. Wednesday’s House discussion lasted less than 5 minutes and no one argued in favor of letting the

bill go to the governor. Even opponents said it was clear there were enough votes to release the bill. Rep. Jim Evans, D-Jackson, said lawmakers should use their time to tackle bigger issues. “We fiddled while Rome was burning.

On tornadoes Statistics on Mississippi tornadoes. • The Mississippi Delta tornado of Feb. 21, 1971, in Issaquena and Grenada counties was the deadliest since 1950 with 58 fatalities. • The Natchez tornado of May 6, 1850, was the deadliest ever with 317 fatalities. Statistics on the April 24, 2010, tornado. • The fourth longest tracking in Mississippi at 149.25 miles. The top-ranked was the Candlestick Park tornado of March 3, 1966, which tracked 203 miles. • The widest in Mississippi at 1.75 miles. • The ninth deadliest in Mississippi since 1900. • Deadliest in Mississippi since 1992. • Deadliest tornado in the United States since Feb. 5, 2008.

Storm Continued from Page A1. recorded in the state, at 1.75 miles. Most damage in Warren County took place at Eagle Lake, particularly around Sea Island Drive on the northern rim of the oxbow lake. District 2 Supervisor William Banks, whose district includes the outdoor resort community of about 600, said a federal declaration will be welcome. Banks termed it a “wait and see” situation for property owners. “I’ve been up there four times,” Banks said. “We’re on standby waiting on the approval.” Federal and state emergency and environmental officials were expected to continue assessing damage here today and in 16 other counties to determine eligibility for federal aid. MEMA estimated 69 homes and mobile homes were damaged in Warren County, along with one business. More than 700 homes were damaged across the state, with damages thought to be more than $50 million. Damage in Madison Parish included the Willow Bayou farming community and businesses at the Madison Parish Port. Inspectors with the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality continued to clear debris at Complex Chemical LLC, left flattened by rail cars and storage tanks thrown around by the tornado’s winds. Removing the containers is the next step, an agency official with the West Monroe regional office said today.

Yazoo City bride and groom feel blessed by gifts By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — Days after a tornado obliterated their home and delayed their wedding, a Mississippi bride and groom say they feel blessed by the kindness of strangers, including the gift of a wedding dress from a jilted bride in Kentucky. “I think it’s great, because I never really expected this much help,” Morgan Hayden said Wednesday from a hotel in her hometown of Yazoo City. Hayden, 27, and her 31-yearold fiance, Josiah Moton, huddled in their bathroom with three relatives Saturday when a tornado blew apart the house the couple had helped build a few months ago in a wooded area just outside town. The storm left them homeless — but uninjured. The National Weather Service said the tornado was 1.75 miles wide — a record for Mississippi. It killed 10 people, injured at least 49 and damaged about 700 homes as it plowed nearly 150 miles through the state. Left with few belongings beyond the clothes they were wearing, Hayden and Moton delayed their plans to go to Little Rock, Ark., on Monday for a small, informal wedding. Hayden said she had not purchased a wedding

Katie Smith, 20, who lives near Louisville, Ky., said she read about the couple in an Associated Press article and decided to find Hayden and offer her the dress. Smith said she had planned to marry this summer, but her fiance from England broke their engagement last

month. “Honestly, it still hurts like hell,” Smith told the AP Wednesday. “But life goes on.” Smith said she has been trying to give away the wedding items she’d already purchased, including the dress she bought on sale for $350. She described the gown as “the perfect combination of innocent and slightly seduc-

tive,” with plenty of ribbons and lace. Hayden accepted the offer, and Smith said she mailed the dress Tuesday.“I know every girl wants to look pretty on her wedding day,” Smith said. An executive at a resort in the Bahamas also said Wednesday that he had read the AP article and the resort offered the couple a honey-

moon when they’re ready for it. Rick English, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Baha Mar Ltd., said the resort will provide two round-trip air tickets and five nights with an oceanview room “as kind of a way to make some new memories and help them get past what happened.” Moton said he and Hayden accepted the honeymoon offer Wednesday. “I think it was wonderful. I really do,” Moton said. Hundreds of tornado survivors in Mississippi are getting help from strangers. Charities are providing meals and bottled water. Church groups, civic groups and random people from in state and out of state are in the storm-damaged areas to cut fallen trees and clear debris. Hayden works for a company that collects child-support payments under a contract for the state, and Moton was laid off from his job as a house painter in December. They have four children. Hayden said a homeowners’ insurance policy is paying hotel expenses for a week, and she and Moton hope to move into an apartment. She said they’ll reschedule the wedding when life becomes somewhat normal again, and the ceremony will probably be in Yazoo City.

with a homer, double, three RBIs and four runs scored for the Rebels (30-13), who head to Starkville this weekend for a key three-game Southeastern Conference series with Mississippi State. Although MSU is in last place in the SEC West, the series is crucial for Ole Miss. The Rebels face division leader Arkansas next weekend and can’t afford to lose ground heading into that series. Ole Miss is currently two games behind Arkansas for the division lead.

“Tonight we continued to swing the bat well. We’re on a good streak right now, and hopefully it will continue into this weekend,” Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco said. “This weekend series is big not only for the SEC race but for the rivalry and the fans. We’ve seen Mississippi State already this year in the midweek, but need to get these wins this weekend. A lot of our players and their players grew up playing against each other, and a good series this weekend would be huge.”

Harper strides into role as Vikings’ ace By Ernest Bowker ebowker@vicksburgpost.com Jay Harper spent his 2009 summer vacation turning himself into an ace. He lifted weights. He ran, threw, then ran and threw some more. Building his body, the senior right-hander transformed himself from a pitcher who could throw a few innings into the leader Warren Central needed to change its fortunes. After throwing a total of 14 innings in 2009, Harper has more than tripled that amount this year. He signed with Hinds Community College last Thursday, then led Warren Central to its first division championship in five years the next night. This Friday he’ll start Game 1 of a first-round Class 6A playoff series against DeSoto Central. It’s the capstone of a remarkable season built on hard work and determination. “We knew he had good stuff and had an opportunity to be pushed,” WC coach Josh Abraham said. “We made his life miserable but it’s paying off now.” Harper’s ascension to the top of WC’s pitching staff began shortly after the 2009 season ended. He started working with pitching coach Conner Douglas on a long toss and throwing program, and also worked to increase his strength. “A lot of long tossing. I threw a lot of bullpens and got in the weight room,” Harper said. “I knew if I was going to play at the next level I had to do it this year.” The extra work enhanced Harper’s natural ability. The fastball that topped out in the low 80s jumped to about 86 mph. He gained command of three pitches

He’s a lot more mentally tough and the command of his pitches is much better.” Douglas added that Harper’s best weapon isn’t the

velocity, but the movement on his fastball. It runs down and in on righthanded batters, making it tough to do more than fight it off. He also gets a lot of groundouts. In 2009, he had a 4.88 ERA and opponents hit .283 against him. This season, the ERA has been cut to 2.72 and opponents are hitting .239. “The first time I saw him pitch I realized how much inside run he had. He can get in on a lot of hitters and jam them,” Douglas said.

Regionals up next for locals By Jeff Byrd jbyrd@vicksburgpost.com Coming off their best showing in the division meet in several years, the St. Aloysius Lady Flashes will have a short time to get ready for the Region 4-1A meet today at Mississippi College. The Lady Flashes finished second in last week’s Division 7-1A meet at Madison Central with 54 points and had a large number of athletes qualify for the region meet. One of them is seventhgrader Maggie Waites, who won the girls pole vault at the division meet. “I think the sky’s the limit for Maggie. She has gone into Louisiana and Southern Mississippi to get coaching. She’s been over 8 feet at the St. Andrew’s meet and she’s just in the seventh grade,” St. Al coach Mike Jones said. The Lady Flashes will also be well-represented in the distance events with Anna Haygood, Alana Buckley and Mary Campbell. They will also have a 4x200-meter relay team entered. Not every team member will be there, however. Schedule conflicts will keep several athletes away from the track. “When you are 1A, you just have to go with the folks that will put a meet on. Mississippi College wanted it, but it had to be on a Thursday. That kind of hurt us, because we will have some girls out,” Jones said. On the boys side, Matt Wooten and Josh Williams have a shot to advance to South State. Wooten won the discus at the division meet while Williams was second in the 3,200-meter run. “It’s an eight-team meet and looking at times, I think we will get some folks to South State,” Jones said. In addition to hosting the MHSAA regional today, Mississippi College will be the site of the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools See Track, Page B3.

Long trips, declining budgets call for new plan A recent look at the playoff schedule for baseball and fastpitch softball revealed one startling fact. Warren Central’s softball and baseball teams, both playing DeSoto Central from the Memphis metro area, would have passed each other like ships in the night. The plan, now changed due to weather, had Warren Central’s baseball team headed north while the softball team came home for Game 2 of their playoff series on Saturday. Where is the logic in that? It’s just a cruel stepchild of the very odd playoff system for the best-of-three series employed by the Mississippi High School Activities Association. People could say that the

POST SPORTS EDITOR

bus trips are a waste of taxpayer dollars, but that’s not entirely true. Phyfa Eiland of the MHSAA said the traveling teams in all of the playoff rounds except the championships receive a mileage check of $1 per mile out of the home team’s share of the gate receipts. That check is in addition to the 35 percent of the gate the visitors receive.

But there is still the cost of a bus driver and the wear and tear on buses when school systems are staring at the abyss of continuing state and local budget shortfalls as the recession reduces tax revenues. There’s a quick solution that would cut out a lot of that travel. Give the host school all three games in a series for both baseball and softball. The format, as used by the Georgia High School Association, has a doubleheader on the first day, usually a Friday, and a Game 3, if needed, on Saturday. No multiple long bus trips. To the victors go the spoils. The gate revenue split is 60 percent for the home team and 40 percent for visitors.

The criticisms are easy to make. Playing a doubleheader on the first day would be taxing on pitching. Baseball teams would be forced to throw their top two pitchers and go with whoever was left after the first two games. Softball, in which teams usually throw just one or two pitchers, wouldn’t be as affected. But the pitching deficit would be a small problem when the lessened travel and greater emphasis on the division races is taken into account. Finishing second now under the present system is just a minor hurdle, even if your team still has to square off against a higher-seeded team, because you’re guaranteed at least one game at home.

Finish second under Georgia’s plan and unless some higher-seeded teams are knocked out, your team could be hitting the road for a prolonged run to the state championship series. And judging by the homefield advantage enjoyed by some of the state’s major baseball powers, it likely won’t be a prolonged run. With more budget cuts and gas prices likely to shoot up in the future, this is a solution that makes incredible sense. Even if it has to be copied from the Peach State.

Baseball Biscuits rally to beat M-Braves Emeel Saleem put Montgomery ahead with a two-run triple in the seventh inning, and the Biscuits added two more in the eighth on a home run by Matt Fields to beat the Mississippi Braves 6-4 on Wednesday in the finale of a five-game series.

Basketball Ole Miss adds pair of recruits OXFORD — Ole Miss head basketball coach Andy Kennedy has signed Donald Williams and Isaiah Massey. Williams, a 6-foot-5 guard, originally signed with Kentucky under former coach Billy Gillispie. He redshirted during the 2008-09 season and then transferred to Antelope Valley Community College (Calif.), where he averaged 16.6 points per game. Williams has three years of eligibility remaining. Massey, a 6-foot-8 forward, spent last season, spent last season in prep school at TAAG Academy in Tampa, Fla. He’s originally from Brooklyn, N.Y., but played in high school at Union Grove in McDonough, Ga. Massey was committed to Alabama A&M last year before going to prep school.

Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy and forward Matt Barnes also were fined $35,000 each last week for criticizing officials. Howard posted on his blog: “I’m not looking to say anything to get myself in trouble with the league, but I just don’t see other star players getting called for fouls the way I get them. No star player in the league is outta games the way I am.” Howard also was fined $15,000 in November for similar comments on his Web site.

Bucks push Atlanta to the brink Punchless Braves

lose eighth in a row

By The Associated Press Relying on young and old, the Milwaukee Bucks find themselves one win from an upset that looked improbable just a week ago. No one is more stunned than the Atlanta Hawks, who figured they would have things all wrapped up by now. Brandon Jennings scored 25 points, Kurt Thomas drew a crucial charging foul against Joe Johnson and the Bucks stunned the home team with a 14-0 run late in the game, beating the favored Hawks 91-87 on Wednesday night for a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series. Milwaukee, appearing in the playoffs for the first time since 2006, responded like the seasoned postseason team after getting blown out in the first two games. The third-seeded Hawks, planning for a long run in their third straight playoff appearance, better figure out a way to win on the road or this season will be over much sooner than they expected. Game 6 is Friday night in Milwaukee. “The pressure’s not on us,” Jennings said. Milwaukee center Andrew Bogut is watching the playoffs with a cast on his right hand after taking a gruesome fall late in the regular season, but the 20-year-old Jennings keeps stepping up big with darting moves to the hoop and timely jumpers. The rookie scored 12 straight points early and clinched the victory with two free throws. Joining him in a duo for the ages is the 37-year-old Thomas, one of the league’s oldest players. Bogut’s replacement doesn’t show up much on the stat sheet — he took only one shot and failed to score — but he came up with perhaps the biggest play of the game when he stepped out to take a charge from Johnson with 2:15 remaining, the Atlanta star’s sixth foul. “I thought when Joe Johnson came out of the game,” Jennings said, “we had a chance to win it.” The Hawks appeared to be in control leading 82-73 after Josh Smith’s long jumper with 4:10 remaining. Milwaukee scored the next 14 points while Atlanta was missing seven straight shots. Even though Al Horford finally broke the drought with 19 seconds remaining, then banked in a 3-pointer from the top of the key to finish with 25 points

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jaime Garcia made the St. Louis Cardinals’ rotation as the fifth starter. Against the punchless Atlanta Braves, the rookie left-hander looked like an ace again. The 23-year-old Garcia lowered his ERA to 1.04 with seven scoreless innings and David Freese had two hits and two RBIs in a 6-0 victory Wednesday night, saddling the Braves with their eighth straight loss. “Since I was in spring training when I was fighting for a spot I said, ‘This is going to be my year,’” the 23-year-old Garcia said. “So far, it’s been so good.” Albert Pujols and Colby Rasmus each had two hits and an RBI for the Cardinals, who have won four in a row and can sweep the Braves for the first time since 1993 in the finale of a four-game set this afternoon, with Adam Wainwright coming off consecutive complete games. Jair Jurrjens will pitch for the Braves, who have scored only 13 runs during their worst slump since losing 10 in a row in June 2006. Most Atlanta hitters took early batting practice and manager Bobby Cox gave struggling rookie Jason Heyward, in a 1-for-20 tailspin, a day off. The top of the order — Yunel Escobar, Martin Prado and Jones — was 0-for-8 with a walk against Garcia (2-1).

“You have high hopes every time you walk out there on the field and then bam, before you can blink, you’re down Jamie 2-0,” Jones Garcia said. Braves starter Kenshin Kawakami (0-4) allowed two runs on wild pitches and gave up four earned runs in 41⁄3 innings, the shortest of his four starts. He issued three of Atlanta’s four intentional walks, with the Cardinals’ 3-45-6 hitters ending up with one apiece. In other National League games Tuesday, it was San Diego 6, Florida 4; the New York Mets 7, the Los Angeles Dodgers 3; Pittsburgh 6, Milwaukee 5, in 14 innings; Washington 3, the Chicago Cubs 2; Arizona 12, Colorado 11, in 10 innings; Philadelphia 7, San Francisco 6, in 11 innings; and Cincinnati 6, Houston 4. In the American League, it was Seattle 6, Kansas City 5; the Los Angeles Angels 4, Cleveland 3; Detroit 11, Minnesota 6; the New York Yankees 8, Baltimore 3; Boston 2, Toronto 0; Tampa Bay 10, Oakland 3; and Texas 6, the Chicago White Sox 5.

on TV 7 p.m. TNT - Dallas at San Antonio, Game 6 9:30 p.m. TNT - Phoenix at Portland, Game 6 and 11 rebounds, it wasn’t enough to make up for a total collapse. “This is incredible,” said Jamal Crawford, who had an awful game one day after winning the NBA’s Sixth Man Award. “We had the game won. It just slipped away from us.”

Nuggets 116, Jazz 102 Carmelo Anthony had 26 points and 11 rebounds, J.R. Smith made four big 3-pointers among his 17 points, and Chauncey Billups had 21 points for Denver, which avoided elimination. The Nuggets, trying to become the first team in four years to overcome a 3-1 deficit in the playoffs, sent the series back to Salt Lake City for Game 6 on Friday night despite losing center Nene to a sprained left knee in the first half. Denver won a game in which

it was facing elimination for the first time since the 1994 Western Conference semifinals against Utah. The Nuggets had lost eight straight elimination games, six since Anthony joined the team in 2003. Deron Williams had 34 points and 10 assists for Utah, while Carlos Boozer had 25 points and 16 boards. Nene sprained his left knee with 5 minutes left in the first half. He had two points, one rebound and four assists. The Nuggets said he would be reevaluated today.

More mellow Tiger heads back to course CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Tiger Woods hopes his second step back on the PGA Tour is even better than his first. Woods’ golf rehabilitation continued today at the Quail Hollow Championship, three weeks after he ended a fivemonth hiatus from the game at the Masters. Woods finished in a share of fourth place at Augusta National, a remarkable feat given the sex scandal that destroyed the foundations of his old life and made his new one fodder for every tabloid and news magazine. But the spotlight’s glare isn’t nearly as bright at Quail Hollow Club, and this time Woods is armed with two-plus weeks of work on what didn’t go right at Augusta. “There were some things I didn’t like in my golf swing, so I started to work on that, simplify things a little bit, got everything more fine-tuned,” Woods said Wednesday. “And I feel very comfortable.” Woods and Phil Mickelson head one of the year’s best fields at Quail Hollow, which has the feel of a major. Fans who took off from work and skipped school lined the course during the pro-am that included celebrities such as new Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan. Mickelson couldn’t make it to the end of his round, withdrawing after five holes with an illness. He was treated for dehydration at an on-course medical center, but was still expected to make his firstround tee time today.

Tiger Woods, left, signs autographs after finishing the proam of the Quail Hollow Championship on Wednesday.

golf A big question facing Woods was whether the large, public gallery at Quail Hollow might lead to Tiger catcalls and shenanigans that Augusta National took pains to prevent. Security is beefed up here, too. But on Wednesday, Woods was treated as respectfully as he was by the Masters crowd, applauded at just about every fairway and green. “Tiger, win this tournament,” came a shout as Woods walked down the 16th fairway. Woods acknowledged the good wishes with a wave. Woods again showed off his softened persona, smiling to sign a few autographs between the 16th and 17th holes.

“As far as the fans here over the years, they’ve been great,” Woods said after the round. “There’s no reason why that shouldn’t continue.” There’s also no reason to think — as long as he recuperates — that Quail Hollow crowds won’t continue to shower Mickelson with cheers as golf’s deserving good guy. Mickelson’s third Masters win followed a year of turmoil during which both his wife and mother were diagnosed with breast cancer. “For me, personally, it’s probably the most important win that I’ve had,” Mickelson said. The Masters winner spent his first week mostly goofing around with his kids, attending school events and taking

in a San Diego Padres game. The past five or six days, Mickelson says, he’s worked to bring his game back to Augusta level. “So I certainly have high expectations this week and next” for The Players Championship, Mickelson said. Woods has those same expectations — and he feels he’s closer to his winning form than a few weeks ago. He was angered about his play when the Masters ended but has come to appreciate what he accomplished over the past few weeks. “Given a little time to reflect on it, it was an incredible week,” Woods said. “I think it went as well as it could have possibly gone.” Not everything’s easier, Woods acknowledged. He was criticized by some for recently attending a Nickelback concert. And he can’t go anywhere outside his house without cameras there to show his actions to the world. “Helicopters, here and there, people driving by,” he said. “Paparazzi camping out in front of the gates. That hasn’t changed.” Instead, he’ll measure his comeback by the less frenzied atmosphere he faces and his improving golf swing, both of which give him hope that success is not far off. “I have to say this feels a heck of a lot more normal than the Masters did,” Woods said.

VHS girls coach Dedra Robinson said both her Missy Gators and the Lady Vikes ran into a strong GreenvilleWeston team at the Division 4-6A meet in Greenville last week. “Greenville had some horses. They had two twins

go one-two in both the 3,200 and 1,600 meter runs and that made it tough on Condrea (Collins) from Warren Central. Then they had the Rose girl run 56 seconds to win the 400,” Robinson said. Vicksburg did have some good performers. Chantilly Hall qualified for the 100 and 200 meters, Jazmine Washington for the 100 meter hurdles and triple jump, and Alexis Cosby in the 300 hurdles. The Missy Gators also had all three relay teams advance. The Gators will have Alventray Tarleton in the 100 hurdles, Michael Whitaker in the distance events, Demond Calvin and Rashun Thomas in the sprints and all three relay teams.

Handwritten Lennon lyrics to be sold For the right price, some lucky Beatlemaniac will be able to own the lyrics to the final song on the classic Beatles album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” John Lennon’s handwritten lyrics to the Beatles classic “A Day in the Life” are being auctioned in June, Sotheby’s announced today. The double-sided sheet of paper features Lennon’s edits John and corrections in his own hand — in black felt Lennon marker and blue ball point pen, with a few annotations in red ink. It is expected to fetch between $500,000 and $700,000 when it is sold in New York on June 18. Rolling Stone magazine listed “A Day in the Life” at No. 26 in its compilation of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and “Sgt. Pepper” won four Grammy awards in 1968. The lyrics stirred controversy when the Beatles released the album in 1967. The song was banned by the BBC because it twice features the line, “I’d love to turn you on,” which was interpreted as supporting illegal drug use. The song was also left off copies of “Sgt. Pepper’s” sold in several Asian countries for the same reason.

Felony charges dropped against Quaid Randy Quaid won’t have to worry about missing any more court appearances after prosecutors dropped felony charges Wednesday against the actor. Quaid’s wife Evi, however, will be on probation for three years after she pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor count of defrauding an innkeeper. She also will have to perform 240 hours of community service. Randy Quaid “This is a very fair resolution of the matter,” said attorney Robert Sanger, who represents the couple. “The Quaids are pleased with the disposition.” The couple had been charged with defrauding an innkeeper of more than $10,000 as well as conspiracy and burglary after an invalid credit card was used at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito. Senior Deputy District Attorney Arnie Tolks said an invalid card also was used at The Biltmore, a luxury resort in Santa Barbara. Prosecutors had a strong circumstantial case against Randy Quaid, but his wife was more involved with the transactions in question so charges were dropped against the actor, Tolks said. Randy Quaid is best-known for supporting roles in films such as “Independence Day” and “National Lampoon’s Vacation.” He is the older brother of Dennis Quaid. The case was filed in September and prompted a legal saga that saw the couple arrested in Texas and California.

PETA buys ad space on cremation urns A dying Oregon comedian’s last words will be written on his cremation urns — and the message will be sponsored by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The animal rights group has paid $200 to place ads blasting KFC and dog breeders on the urns that will hold the remains of Aaron Jamison, who is dying of colon cancer. The Springfield man offered the ad space earlier this month so his wife wouldn’t be left with funeral costs. Since then, the $800 cremation cost has been covered, and donations have helped pay some of Jamison’s medical bills. One of the PETA ads will say: “I’ve Kicked the Bucket — Have you? Boycott KFC.” The other reads: “People who Buy Purebred Dogs Really Burn Me Up. Always Adopt.”

$2.8M set aside for Tupelo Elvis attraction JACKSON (AP) — An official with the Elvis Birthplace and Museum expects little trouble in coming up with a 20 percent local match to garner $2.8 million from the state to enhance the Tupelo tourist destination. “We don’t see a problem raising our share,” said Elvis Presley Memorial Foundation Executive Director Dick Guyton. The funds to improve the Tupelo birthplace of the King of Rock ’n’ Roll is part of a $400 million bond package signed into law by Gov. Haley Barbour. Many Tupelo businesses, said Guyton, would probably see the local matching funds as an opportunity to make improvements that would attract more visitors to the Elvis Presley Birthplace and Museum and longer stays. That will help those businesses and all of the local economy, agreed Tupelo Mayor Jack Reed Jr. The first-term mayor said he supports the idea of making the birthplace a destination that would entice tourists to stay overnight instead of half a day, as many do now when they visit Tupelo as a side trip to Graceland in Memphis. The bond package includes funds primarily for repair and renovations at the eight public universities, 15 community colleges, other state-owned buildings and for other tourism-related sites. Guyton said the next step will be to hire an architect to put together the plans for the birthplace.

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Taurus (April 20-May 20) — No matter how astute your investigative skills today, if you’re too negative about your abilities to take advantage of them, they’ll do you little good. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Should a friend of yours who recently went to bat for you need your help today, drop what you’re doing and assist your pal to the fullest. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — The thought of being able to gratify your ambitions will provide you with the necessary motivation to go after what you want. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Being open and friendly to all is well and good, but make sure you are extremely cautious about whom you take into your confidence. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You have a natural talent of taking that which is old and worn-out and transforming it into something that is functional and useful. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Far more impressive achievements can be made today if the goals of you and your mate are in harmony. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Things can be far harder to achieve when you have to depend upon others to get them. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You shouldn’t be afraid to take a chance on what you want as long as you don’t bet a dollar to make a dime. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Although at times today you might find it hard to believe, conditions in general are actually rather good. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Having preconceived ideas about how to handle things of a commercial nature could be more detrimental than constructive. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Be optimistic, but not to the point of ignoring good common sense. Aries (March 21-April 19) — As long as you acknowledge and consider the viewpoints of others, you shouldn’t be afraid to strongly defend your beliefs.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m a 19-year-old female who happens to believe that it is all right to remain single. All of my female friends are discussing who their husband will be and when the wedding will take place. There are two major reasons why I’m never going to get married, even though I enjoy dating guys. It’s not the guys I don’t like; it’s being tied to one till death or divorce ends the misery. My mom is in her third marriage. My dad is engaged to a lady who is divorced, while my dad has been divorced twice. Do you honestly believe that my dad’s third marriage will provide the couple to “live happily ever after”? I don’t. I read in this morning’s newspaper that television talk-show host, Larry King, has filed for divorce from his eighth wife. ‘Nuff said! — Nameless, Willmar, Minn. Nameless: Don’t judge all marriages by the marriage failures of your parents and Larry King. Many divorces are the result of couples that never should have married each other, and the union was doomed from the start. Other married couples end the union because of unforgivable behavior by one or both partners. That’s understandable. The keys to a successful marriage are unconditional love and becoming “we” instead of “me.” Please read the following letter sent some years ago from a World War II veteran. He wanted to share his marriage experience with a young lady who, like you, didn’t want to get married because so many marriages end in divorce: Dr. Wallace: In 1946, I met a 17-year-old young lady while stationed in Germany with the U.S. Army. We married in Germany in 1948 and returned to the United States. I was sent to Camp Chafee in Arkansas with a wife who spoke little English and very little money in my wallet. Not long after we’d gotten settled, I had to move my wife to California because the Korean War had started and I was one of the first to be sent. When I went overseas, my wife was two months pregnant. When I returned home, I was met by a faithful wife and a beautiful 9-month-old daughter. My wife and I recently celebrated out 54th wedding anniversary. Every day I’m with this wonderful woman, I love her more than the day before. Of course we’ve had our hardships and difficult times, but never did we consider divorce. We are parents to two daughters and a son, and they were wonderful gifts from God. I’ll close my letter by telling you that my wife and I are indeed fortunate to still have each other. — Robert, Bruce, Miss. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

happen I would have told John the truth. Instead of leaving her husband, Sally gave up her friendship with me. What did I do wrong? Should I be punished for listening to her? What would you advise your readers to do when someone starts telling them about an affair they’re having? — Thrown Under the Bus, Bellevue, Wash. Dear Under the Bus: What you did “wrong” was allow yourself to be dragged into that mess as a co-conspirator. Silence implies agreement. Once John realized you knew all about her affair and lied, you became as guilty in his eyes as Sally and her lover. My advice to readers about what to do when someone starts telling them about an affair? Stay out of the line of fire by telling the person you don’t want to hear it. Dear Abby: Like many parents, my husband and I would like our three children to read more. And they, like many children, would prefer to watch more television. We arrived at a compromise, and I would like to share it with your readers. Many television shows are

also available with closed captioning. For those who don’t know what closed captioning is — it is a service available on most TVs that shows what is being broadcast via audio. We mute the television and have the children read the words instead of listening. It works great! Their reading skills have soared, and I have noticed they are now reading more books than they used to. In addition, I really enjoy the quiet time while we’re watching the TV. Please pass this strategy on. Some of our friends are also doing it and feel it has helped their children, too. — Proud Parents Dear Proud Parents: I’m pleased to spread the word. Closed captioning, which was originally intended for use by people with hearing disabilities, can also be very helpful for individuals who are learning English as a second language.

THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME by Mike Argirion and Jeff Knurek

Lichen planus diagnosis can last up to 18 months Dear Dr. Gott: I am an 80-year-old female diagnosed with lichen planus. Other than being told it is an autoimmune disease, the dentists and doctors I have visited have no idea what to do with me. I have a white coating in my mouth on the bottom gums and occasionally break out with water blisters on my legs. I am writing to you as a last resort for help. I have read on the computer that it is shortlived, but might come back. I have had it for three years now, and while it doesn’t always cause pain, it is annoying. I once sent away for pills that were supposed to rid me of it, but they did nothing. Dear Reader: Perhaps your “last resort” will solve the problem. The precise cause of lichen planus remains unknown. As you are aware, it is thought to be related to an autoimmune disease or allergy and presents with mouth and skin lesions. The mouth lesions can be painful, may increase in size and are on the sides of the tongue, inside the cheek, and occasionally on the gums. Skin lesions have distinct borders, can develop blisters or ulcers, are shiny or scaly in appearance, and are symmetrical and itchy. Risks include exposure to gold, some diuretics and antibiotics, other medications and hepatitis C. Related symptoms are ridges in finger and toenails, a metallic taste in the mouth, hair loss and dry mouth. Treatment includes applecider vinegar or lidocaine mouthwashes, antihistamines, cyclosporin or other immunesuppressing medications, topical or oral corticosteroids, topical ointments or creams and ultraviolet-light therapy. The prognosis is good in that lichen planus isn’t generally harmful and should get better with treatment. It commonly clears up within 18 months, but can come and go for years. One possible complication that can occur is oral cancer. Therefore, it is extremely important you remain in contact with your dentist for examination on a regular basis. Dear Dr. Gott: My 45-year-old daughter told me that when she moves her bowels, the feces are a greenish color. What causes this? Dear Reader: Variations in diet can lead to green stool. Green, leafy vegetables contain chlorophyll. Foods with purple coloring such as ice pops or gelatin desserts can turn stool rainbow colors. Foods rich in iron or iron supplements can also modify the color. Bile is secreted in the small intestine and is green in color. Normally, the stool turns brown as it passes through the large intestine. However, if it passes faster than normal, it may be expelled while still green.
