6 dead in 2nd wave of storms to strike Mississippi in a week By Erik Schelzig The Associated Press

ASHLAND — Six people were killed Sunday in a second wave of severe weather to hit Mississippi in a week. In Ashland, little was left of the mobile home where Latoya Long, 25, and Thomas

Cowan, 26, were killed. A tornado flung the structure some 75 feet from its base into a tree, smashing the trailer apart. Cowan’s father, Ted, was also in the trailer and was hospitalized in stable condition, relatives said. “It’s hard to imagine he could survive. It’s a bless-

ing,” said cousin Shemeka Judge. The weather was blamed for four other deaths — one in Lafayette County and three in what authorities said were weather-related traffic accidents. National Weather SerSee Storms, Page A7.

Oil could continue to spew for a week By Holbrook Mohr and Allen G. Breed The Associated Press VENICE, La. — BP PLC said today that it will pay for all the cleanup costs from a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that could continue spewing crude for at least another week. Meanwhile, chief executive Tony Hayward said today that chemical dispersants have worked to some degree to keep oil from flowing to the surface, though he did not elaborate. He said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that the new approach seemed to be having a significant impact. See Oil spill, Page A7.

Two homicides and an arson are among the cases for which a Warren County Grand Jury might review evidence this week, District Attorney Ricky Smith said. Murder indictments will be sought for Deaunte Earl Lewis, 23, accused of stabbing to death 16-year-old Terry Robinson on New Year’s Eve, and Dwight Albert, 35, and Kathryn Blue, 30, arrested in October for the 2005 shooting death of Kennado Caples. A third suspect, Larry Hamlin, 30, surrendered in December. An indictment of Dominic Rashad Turner, 19, accused of shooting 18-year-old Derrick Stamps Feb. 14, probably will not be sought at this session, Smith said, but will await completion of work by investigating officers. In the arson case, Leroy Evans, 32, a former volunteer firefighter from Utica who is accused of starting a Jan. 25 blaze that destroyed four homes and a business at Jackson and Second North streets, could face indictment. Smith said he expected to be preparing cases up until the last minute and could decide to delay some cases. “Everything is subject to change,” he said. Under Mississippi court procedures, evidence against people accused of felonies is considered by 18 or more registered voters, selected randomly, who meet behind closed doors. The jurors decide whether to make a formal charge, known as an indictment, and, if so, which charge to file. Suspects can waive indictment and plead

Two-year-old McLain “Mac” Connell, supposed to be smiling for a photographer, was overcome with shyness. Dressed in an heirloom-quality linen outfit made by his grandmother, Vicksburg resident Rosemary Fairchild, Mac was one of a dozen children modeling garments made by members of the Magnolia Stitchers to be featured in the March 2011 issue of Sew Beautiful magazine. Once Fairchild led Mac to an azalea and got him interested

in its petals, he forgot to be shy. Photographer Kamin Williams quickly took advantage of the situation, snapping several shots of Mac on the lawn of the Old Court House Museum. Williams and Sew Beautiful editor Kathy Barnard were in Vicksburg last week on a daylong photo shoot of kids ages 10 months to 12 years wearing Magnolia Stitchers-designed garments. About 24 outfits were chosen for the feature. It’s the second time the artistry of the Vicksburg group has been recognized by the magazine, which will showcase the group’s

Lights back on for most after outage downtown By Pamela Hitchins

Power has been restored to all but four Vicksburg customers who lost service Saturday evening, Entergy spokesman Don Arnold said today. “We got power back on to everybody that could take power,” Arnold said, adding the electrical utility’s crews worked from 4:30 p.m. Saturday until late Sunday. Those remaining — two residences and two businesses — appear to have incurred damage at their meter base and would require more specific repairs, he said. At its height, the outage affected about 2,700 customers, 23 percent of the city’s 12,000 Entergy customers, Arnold said. The increase over the original estimate of 1,800 was due to another circuit discovered to have been damaged. There’s a large concentration of churches in the area and most reported power was restored in the early morning hours before services. A chain reaction began Saturday afternoon at Entergy’s downtown sub-

Arnold said one of two large transformers failed, triggering a back feed of high voltage along power lines not adequate to transmit it. Eight spans of wire on Mulberry and along Washington Street burned, with sparks and smoke coming from the substation and power poles. People in the area said it sounded like something exploded and buildings shook. Downtown stores and restaurants closed for the night, most before 5 p.m. Power was also lost along

Clay Street to Mission 66, in neighborhoods along East Avenue and MacArthur, Halls Ferry Road in the Marcus Bottom area and along Cherry Street. The Warren County Jail was operating on generators, Sheriff Martin Pace said. Extra patrols were called in by police Chief Walter Armstrong, who said this morning that just two reports of malicious mischief were reported Saturday night. “We were prepared and we think we made a difference,” he said.

make, and the different demonstrations,” Caldwell said. “There’s always something to take home with you to add to your repertoire — and the food is delicious.” Besides sewing for their own children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces, the Magnolia Stitchers also have a pet project, one that’s embraced by all SAGA groups. “One of the things we do is make ‘Wee Care’ gowns for the premie babies who don’t make it,” Dyer said. The women make little gowns and hats with delicate hand smocking, cherished as burial gowns for their little ones by grieving parents. Barnard said heirloom sewing is beautiful but just

a small part of the home sewing industry. For that reason, the magazine has been working to change its theme somewhat, beginning to focus primarily on “fine sewing” — work that is simple, fun and practical. “Some simple but very nice things sell for $80 to $100 in boutiques,” she said, “but you can make them for $20.” Sew Beautiful is published six times a year, and features articles, patterns and other resources “for those who love to sew beautiful things.” The magazine was founded in 1987 by Martha Campbell Pullen, one of several projects that began in a small shop in Huntsville, Ala. Sew Beautiful can be purchased for $6.

A Vicksburg man who fled charges of armed robbery, kidnapping, rape and burglary two years ago was back in custody today, said Sheriff Martin Pace. Korey O’Neal Sims, 28, 1704 Heather Drive, was arrested by deputies Saturday evening. Sims had been held at the Linn County Jail in Iowa on unrelated charges, Pace said, and was returned Saturday to Vicksburg. In April 2008, a woman reported that a man had broken into her home, raped her and taken $40 from her purse while holding her at knife point, Pace said. Sims was indicted on the four charges in August 2009 by a Warren County grand jury. He was being held without bond pending an initial court appearance.

Landrieu, who is vacating the lieutenant governor’s post, was elected in a landslide in February with broad cross-racial support. He succeeds term-limited Mayor Ray Nagin. Landrieu becomes the first white mayor of the mostly black city since his father, Moon Landrieu, left office in

Maze fans danced to and sang along with the group as they performed their hits, including “We Are One,” “Southern Girl,” “Running Away” and “Golden Time of Day.” Beverly briefly walked the crowd through the group’s conception, noting that one of their best selling releases was “Live: In New Orleans.”

Trombone Shorty brings funk, flavor to Jazz Fest NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Troy Andrews has been playing at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival for 20 years — and he’s only 24. On Sunday, Andrews, who’s better known as “Trombone Shorty,” and his group Orleans Avenue, gave festival goers a taste of what he calls “Supafunkrock,” which is showcased on his new album, “Backatown.” The project, he said, stays true to his roots and gloriously combines elements of funk, rock, R&B and hip-hop. “Man, it’s a musical gumbo,” Andrews said during an interview prior to his jazz fest appearance. Umbrellas popped up intermittently during Andrews’ performance on Sunday. A huge crowd jammed the soggy field in front of the Gentilly Stage and even more packed the sidelines to get a glimpse of his genius as he played the trombone, trumpet and organ. Maribeth Condon, of San Diego, said she loves his energy. “It’s his voice, his showmanship. He just has it all,” she said. “He’s part of the next wave of great brass

Every passenger pays luggage expenses No one likes price increases, but airlines now charging for carryons have made a decision that should be rewarded or punished in the marketplace. They may be making a mistake. They may be doing their customers without bags a favor, giving them an option of lower fares. But it should be their decision, not a matter for congressional intervention. Politicians who promise to stop bag fees do travelers an injustice disguised as something good. Government has a role in protecting consumers from fraud, abuse and tainted products. The bag issue involves none of that. Yet panderers such as Sen. Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, stepped up — happy to save travelers from airline carryon fees as if he’s a hero. Schumer squawked when tiny Spirit Airlines initiated a new carryon fee, fearing it might lead others to follow suit. Why, the

mean old Spirit Airlines was just some for-profit business trying to exploit the defenseless consumer. Schumer-the-magic-politician managed to get American, Delta, United, US Airways and JetBlue to promise him they won’t initiate carryon fees anytime soon. Before thanking the good senator too much, carefully assess the facts. Schumer just ensured higher prices. Missing from logic is the fact all airlines charge for carryons. It costs money to transport bags. The bags create work for flight attendants and add weight to the plane. They slow the boarding and deplaning process, reducing the number of trips an aircraft can make in a year. These unavoidable costs are passed along in the price of a ticket, whether or not it’s spelled out. In that way, even Southwest Airlines charges for bags. Spirit even lowered its average fares by more than the cost of the carryon fee.

So what did Sen. Schumer really do, if he didn’t spare us the greed of The Man? He created a mandatory fee and subsidy expense for those who fly major airlines. He created a price cartel, in which most airlines agree to avoid giving customers the option of saving money by traveling light. Who benefits? The airlines and Schumer. Who pays? The travelers who got played. If you fly the Schumer cartel, you will pay the carryon cost when you buy your ticket and you will have no choice. If you don’t carry anything onto the plane, you will subsidize those who do. Keep Schumer in mind as some fellow traveler hovers over you, dropping an overstuffed bag onto your head. Think of Schumer as you wait 20 minutes to deplane, while fellow travelers manage needless amounts of carryon luggage they brought on board because someone said it was free.

Helping one another is something lots of people still do Katie Carter’s photo on last Tuesday’s front page depicted three young Mennonite women removing a sheet of tin roofing that had been blown into a Louisiana cornfield by the tornado three days earlier. The photo was good, but I hope people pondered a deeper meaning. We depend on the National Weather Service for warnings. We depend on the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency for stockpiling and distributing relief supplies as well as compiling “official” damage assessments. We depend on law enforcement officers, fire and rescue personnel. But we also depend on each other — a lot. There remain in our governmentcentered culture just a whole lot of people who do what they can, where they can, when they can. There was no greater evidence of this than the immediate aftermath of Katrina. A week after the storm, when



There’s a Mennonite church near Transylvania on U.S. 65 and members know equipment can’t work in a field littered with metal roofing.

most of us in Vicksburg had power restored, the Federal Emergency Management Agency showed up with a truckload of free government ice in the parking lot at Walmart. By that time, the parking area of a Baptist Church on the Gulf Coast had been transformed into an aroundthe-clock eatery. Thousands of meals had been served for four or five days by the Red Cross, Salvation Army, Woodmen of the World and church and other fraternal organizations. People who care about their fellow

man are always there first. They offer the most and expect nothing in return. Mennonites, officially, are “Christian Anabaptists.” The “ana” is Latin for “against.” But an area of common faith with other denominations, quite apparently, is to fulfill the teachings of Jesus that leading a life of service to others is central to what it means to be a Christian. There aren’t many Mennonites, comparatively. The church has about 110,000 members in the United States,

1.5 million worldwide, but whenever there’s been a storm or a flood, a good number of them will quickly appear. Their distinctive manner mirrors their distinctive dress. They arrive and they work as family groups — men, women and children. There’s a Mennonite church near Transylvania on U.S. 65 and members know equipment can’t work in a field littered with metal roofing. So they asked permission from the owner, then canvassed the field to remove all scraps, large and small. And when they were done, they went home unless there was another job to do. No one would know about the assistance, except the landowner and the Mennonites, unless a photographer happened to take a photo and a news editor decided to use it. My perspective is, quite naturally, media-centered. For years it has bothered me that we of the press rely so heavily on government sources for information that we have actually created a society that believes

government is capable of all things and responsible for all things. It’s a major problem today, I think, that so many seem to think city, state or federal officials can lead their lives, make their decisions, save them from harm, rescue them from personal mistakes or bad judgment. Government can do what it can do, but it can’t live our lives. In the aftermath of bad events such as Katrina and storms such as those on April 24, we see there are people — through faith or any other motivation — who are not only willing, but best situated and equipped, to help each other. These same people lead lives of quiet service every day. A big storm and a happenstance photo are a reminder. Helping one another is still something lots of people do. •

The Vicksburg Post

Oil spill Continued from Page A1. The company posted a fact sheet on its website saying it took responsibility for the response to the Deepwater Horizon spill and would pay compensation for legitimate claims for property damage, personal injury and commercial losses. “We are responsible, not for the accident, but we are responsible for the oil and for dealing with it and cleaning the situation up,” Hayward said. He said the equipment that failed on the rig and led to the spill belonged to owner Transocean Ltd., not BP, which operated the rig. The update on the dispersants came as BP was preparing a system never tried nearly a mile under water to siphon away the geyser of crude from a blown-out well a mile under Gulf of Mexico waters. However, the plan to lower 74-ton, concrete-andmetal boxes being built to capture the oil and siphon it to a barge waiting at the surface will need at least another six to eight days to get in place. Crews continued to lay boom in what increasingly feels like a futile effort to slow down the spill, with all ideas to contain the flow failing so far.

No oil yet on Mississippi’s Gulf Coast BILOXI (AP) — Mississippi’s coastline is in no immediate danger from the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, according to state and Coast Guard officials. Right now the spill is 40 to 50 miles wide and 80 to 90 miles long, but has remained in the vicinity of the well from which it is leaking, said Adm. Thad Allen, the commandant of the Coast Guard. “It has never really been pointed at Mississippi,” he said Sunday evening in Biloxi during a press briefing. Though it is impossible to guess where the oil

might head, if it starts moving toward the Mississippi coast, the state would get a 72 to 96 hour Gov. Haley advanced Barbour notice, Allen said. That notice has not yet been given. What preventative measures can be taken, have been, Gov. Haley Barbour said. Those include monitoring of air and water quality is ongoing. Booms have

been placed to protect the most fragile places, including animal habitats and the entry to Saint Louis Bay. Barbour dismissed rumors that anyone was trying to make the Mississippi coast a landing area for the oil, by directing its flow to the manmade beaches here, which would be easier to clean than wetlands. “If BP could put the oil where they wanted, they’d put it on Cuba — let’s not kid ourselves,” Barbour said. “The idea that someone is trying to push the oil somewhere is just fantasy.”

“I’ve been in Pensacola and I am very, very concerned about this filth in the Gulf of Mexico,” Florida Gov. Charlie Crist said at a fundraiser for his U.S. Senate campaign Sunday night. “It’s not a spill, it’s a flow. Envision sort of an underground volcano of oil and it keeps spewing over 200,000 gallons every single day, if not more.” Fishermen from the mouth of the Mississippi River to the Florida Panhandle got the news that more than 6,800 square miles of federal fishing areas were closed, fracturing their livelihood for at least 10 days and likely more just as the prime spring

season was kicking in. The slick also was precariously close to a key shipping lane that feeds goods and materials to the interior of the U.S. by the Mississippi River. Even if the well is shut off in a week, fishermen and wildlife officials wonder how long it will take for the Gulf to recover. Some compare it to Hurricane Katrina, which Louisiana is still recovering from after nearly five years. “My kids will be talking about the effect of this when they’re my age,” said 41-yearold Venice charter boat captain Bob Kenney. At BP’s Houston offices, dozens of engineers and

technicians were cloistered on the third floor, working 12-hour shifts roundthe-clock to come up with a solution. “It’s probably easier to fly in space than do some of this,” Charlie Holt, BP’s drilling and completion operations manager in the Gulf of Mexico, said Sunday. Everything engineers have tried so far has failed. After the April 20 oil rig explosion, which killed 11 people, the flow of oil should have been stopped by a blowout preventer, but the mechanism failed. Efforts to remotely activate it continue to prove fruitless. On the surface,

A7 windy weather and waves have hampered plans to burn the oil and made booms all along the coast ineffective. The oil probably could keep gushing for months until a second well can be dug to relieve pressure from the first. Besides the immediate impact on Gulf industries, shipping along the Mississippi River could soon be limited. Ships carrying food, oil, rubber and much more come through the Southwest Pass to enter the vital waterway. Shipment delays — either because oil-splattered ships need to be cleaned off at sea before docking or because water lanes are shut down for a time — would raise the cost of transporting those goods. “We saw that during Hurricane Katrina for a period of time — we saw some prices go up for food and other goods because they couldn’t move some fruit down the shipping channels and it got spoiled,” PFGBest analyst Phil Flynn said. The Port of New Orleans said projections suggest the pass will be clear through Tuesday. President Barack Obama toured the region Sunday, deflecting criticism that his administration was too slow to respond. A piece of plywood along a highway read: “OBAMA SEND HELP!!!!”

vice meteorologist Andy Sniezak said two tornadoes were spawned by a supercell thunderstorm. He said NWS assessments show a tornado hit Ashland and another twister struck Lafayette County. The system, packing high winds and heavy rain, developed across Mississippi and moved into Tennessee on Sunday, where at least 11 people were killed. Two were also killed in central Kentucky. For Mississippi, it was the second wave of deadly weather in a week. A monster tornado cut a 149-mile swath through the central part of the state April 24, killing 10. A couple of dozen homes were either lost or damaged and a couple of people were injured at Eagle Lake, north of Vicksburg. Madison Parish, La., across the Mississippi River from Vicksburg, also saw damage.

While some of the state’s residents in Yazoo, Choctaw and Holmes counties were still cleaning up from that storm, Gov. Haley Barbour on Sunday declared an emergency for Benton, Lafayette, Panola, Tippah and Union counties. Heavy downpours and strong winds damaged numerous homes, flooded streets, and left thousands without power. In Lafayette County, Coroner Rocky Kennedy said 45-year-old Phyllis Sabbatini was killed in her home. In Corinth, Alcorn County Emergency Services Director Ricky Gibens confirmed a man died after his car was submerged in flood waters. Police Chief David Lancaster identified the man as Larry T. Jones, age unavailable. “It took a while to get him out because the water was surging and swift in the area,” said Lancaster. In Lee County late Sunday,

16-year-old Monique Brannon of Shannon was killed when the car in which she was riding on U.S. 45 hydroplaned and struck a car that had pulled over to help another driver who had hydroplaned minutes earlier, said Coroner Carolyn Gillentine-Green. The driver of the vehicle was taken to North Mississippi Medical Center and was in stable condition Sunday night, said Gillentine-Green. On U.S. 78 in Union County, Dustin Tyler Sloan, 20, of Saltillo, died when he apparently lost control of his car during the storm and hit a bridge railing, the Mississippi Highway Patrol said. Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Jeff Rent said first responders are “stretched thin” as they handle the recovery of last weekend’s storm and an oil spill on the Gulf Coast.

guilty, but an indictment usually triggers the next phase — a public trial, a court plea or a no bill. Other cases range “from shoplifting to aggravated assault,” said the DA, and will number about 85 in total, a smaller number than in recent sessions. “I hope that indicates a couple of things,” he added, “first, that we’re caught up on any outstanding cases that were pending, with the 100-plus cases grand juries have reviewed over the last year and a half. I think we’re handling cases much faster, too.” Of the 85, 10 are for felony worthless check charges, he said — nonviolent, non-drugrelated. Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick is presiding during the term of criminal court. Smith also said activity in the case of Robert Jackson is indefinite. Jackson was

sentenced in 1979 to life in prison after pleading guilty to murder in the robberyrelated death of Josephine Thames Todd, who was 79. After numerous appeals, Jackson’s conviction was overturned last month by the Mississippi Supreme Court on the grounds that his indictment was not properly worded. The case was remanded to Smith’s office, meaning the DA can seek another indictment and trial. “The Attorney General has filed a motion for reconsideration (by the Supreme Court),” Smith said. “We won’t make any move until the Supreme Court renders a final decision.” Smith said the 30-year-old case might be presented to the next grand jury session in July. Grand jurors also tour public buildings and prepare inspection reports.

NYPD interviews owner of car bomb SUV NEW YORK (AP) — Police officials said today that investigators had spoken to the registered owner of an SUV used as a homemade car bomb in a failed terror attack in the heart of Times Square, but have not yet identified anyone as the driver. Paul Browne, the NYPD’s deputy commissioner for public information, would not give further details on the registered owner, and would not say whether the person was considered a suspect. The 1993 dark-colored Nissan Pathfinder didn’t have a clearly visible vehicle identification number. Its license plates came from a car found in a Connecticut repair shop. Investigators were also looking to speak with a man in his 40s videotaped shedding his shirt near the sport utility vehicle where the bomb was found. The surveillance video, made public late Sunday, shows an unidentified white man apparently in his 40s slipping down Shubert Alley and taking off his shirt, revealing another underneath. In the same clip, he’s seen looking back in the direction of the smoking vehicle and furtively putting the first shirt in a bag. The NYPD and FBI also were examining “hundreds of hours” of security videotape from around Times Square.

United Airlines has agreed to buy Continental in a $3 billionplus deal that would create the world’s largest carrier with a commanding position in several top U.S. cities. The new United would surpass Delta Air Lines in size, which should help it attract more high-fare business travelers. It will fly to 370 destinations in 59 countries. Although the United name will live on, and the company will stay in Chicago, it will be run by current Continental CEO Jeffery Smisek.

A New York City police officer keeps watch over Times Square today. Police said the crude gasoline-and-propane bomb could have produced “a significant fireball” and sprayed shrapnel and metal parts with enough force to kill pedestrians and knock out windows. The SUV was parked on one of America’s busiest streets, lined with Broadway theaters and restaurants and full of people out on a Saturday night. Attorney General Eric Holder said today there is no question that the person

the airline industry, will be nonexecutive chairman for up to two years before Smisek adds the chairman title. The new parent company will be called United Continental Holdings Inc., and have about $29 billion in annual revenue based on 2009 results and $7.4 billion in unrestricted cash. The airlines said combining would save them $1 billion to $1.2 billion a year by 2013, including between $800 million and $900 million in new yearly revenue. The deal would create a giant with major hubs in markets including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and San Francisco.


or persons behind the failed bombing attempt in Times Square intended to spread terror across New York. Holder said it is too early in the probe to say whether the incident was of foreign or domestic origin and that it was too early to designate it as a terrorist incident. Nonetheless, whoever was behind the effort “intended to spread terror across New York” and if the device had exploded, “we certainly would

have seen a substantial loss of life,” said Holder. Holder said that the American people “should be assured that we are vigilant” and remain determined to stop any potential attack. “That having been said, New York remains a target,” said the attorney general. He spoke following remarks in Arlington, Va., at a conference on human trafficking.

BERLIN (AP) — Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Cabinet agreed today on a bill to give Greece $29.6 billion over three years as part of a wider bailout, as the German government realized that letting Greece go bankrupt could send the euro into a tailspin and hurt Germany’s own economy. Merkel said the money would not only help Greece, which has been battered by the bond markets, but would help the “stabilization of the euro as a whole and, therefore, help the people of Germany.” The remark was a nod to the popular discontent in Europe’s biggest economy about having to pay so much to help a fellow

European Union country that many Germans feel has been fast and loose with its finances for years. The European Central Bank, meanwhile, suspended its rating limits on Greek debt. Both moves were mandatory after European governments and the International Monetary Fund agreed Sunday to give $145 billion in loans to Greece over three years. The loans came after Athens adopted a new round of austerity measures that provoked fresh uproar among Greek workers.

7 p.m. TNT - The second round of the NBA playoffs kick into high gear with a doubleheader. Cleveland takes on Boston in Game 2 of their series, followed by Game 1 between San Antonio and Phoenix at 9:30.

WHO’S HOT REED GORDON Porters Chapel senior finished second in the discus at the MAIS Class A track meet on Friday. Gordon had a throw of 124 feet, 9 inches.

SIDELINES James wins second straight MVP award AKRON, Ohio (AP) — LeBron James won his second straight NBA MVP award Sunday, dominating the voting just as he dominated on court all season. The Cleveland Cavaliers star received 116 of a possible 123 first-place votes. Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant was picked first on four ballots and Orlando center Dwight Howard, who finished fourth, received the other three firstplace votes. Lakers star Kobe Bryant had no first-place votes and finished third. Voting was done by a nationwide panel of sports writers and broadcasters, and this year one ballot was cast by fans in an online vote. Players were awarded 10 points for first, seven points for second, five for third, three for fourth and one for fifth. James is the 10th player to win the award in consecutive seasons, joining Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Moses Malone, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Tim Duncan and Steve Nash. Russell, Chamberlain and Bird won it three times in a row. “I never imagined I would be on a list with names like that,” James said. “Those are players I always looked up to when I was a kid.”


La. Pick 3: 3-2-0 La. Pick 4: 2-8-2-5 Weekly results: B2

After Saturday’s seriestying 10-0 Game 2 victory over Edinburg, St. Aloysius coach Clint Wilkerson reminded his players of three important facts. One was that they had seen Edinburg ace Mitchell Wooten’s entire arsenal. Another was that the arsenal didn’t have many bullets left, as Wooten threw 130 pitches in Friday’s Game 1. Lastly, he reminded them that they’d been in a nearly identical situation before. During last year’s Class 1A championship run, St. Al had to face Stringer ace Andrew Pierce in Game 1 (a loss) and Game 3 (a win) of the South State championship series. “We’re ready to go, pitching-wise,” Wilkerson said. “The idea is this: if you see a guy twice and you can’t beat him twice, you don’t deserve to win. It’s as simple as that. He’s pretty good, no doubt, he’s a competitor. But we’ve seen him and he threw 130 pitches. It’s time to lock in and get it done.” Stephen Evans, who pitched six innings in Game 1, will get the start tonight for St. Al. If he falters, the rest of the staff including Regan Nosser, Josh Eargle and Ryno Martin-Nez — who has not pitched this season but had a strong bullpen session last week — will be ready to roll in relief. The prevailing attitude in the dugout following Saturday’s win, in regards to facing an ace for the second time, was simple — been there, done that. “It helps us out that now we know what we need to do,” senior outfielder Blake Haygood said. Pitching isn’t the only area where Wooten hurt the Flashes (14-7) in Game 1. His home run, which would have been a routine pop fly in Bazinsky Field’s generous dimensions, proved to be a dagger. “We’ve seen him (pitch),

St. Aloysius’ Regan Nosser is hit by a pitch against Edinburg on Saturday. St. Al will play at Edinburg in Game 3 of their first-round Class 1A playoff series tonight at 6. but more than that, we have a better understanding of how to pitch him,” senior catcher Brendan Beesley said. “A hanging breaking ball and he tomahawked it over the fence. We’ve got to keep that breaking ball down below the knees against him.” In Class 6A, Warren Central needs two wins tonight against DeSoto Central to advance to the quarterfinals, where Madison Central awaits. DeSoto Central won 1-0 in Game 1 despite a stellar start from WC ace Jay Harper, who scattered six hits and gave up only one run.

Colby Key (5-1) will get the start in Game 2, while the Game 3 starter will likely be whoever is left. The problem for the Vikings on Friday was offense. Although they routed DeSoto 13-2 in a regular-season meeting in March — and scored

at least 10 runs in three straight games coming in — they only managed three hits in Game 1, two of them infield singles. “We’re going into this with the mindset we’re going to win two games,” WC coach Josh Abraham said.

PCA’s ‘Comeback Kids’ writing playoff sequel By Ernest Bowker Things weren’t looking good for Porters Chapel. It trailed by four runs and had done little offensively through four innings. Ahead lay the unsavory prospect of a do-or-die elimination game with a pitching staff stretched to its limit by fatigue and injuries. To escape the jam, the Eagles needed a comeback and fast. So, basically, they were right in their comfort zone. When PCA scored seven runs in the fifth and sixth innings to beat Calvary Christian in Game 2 of a second-round MAIS Class A playoff series, it marked the seventh time in its last 10 playoff games — and second this postseason — that it scored the winning run in the sixth inning or later. “That’s the mark of a championship team. That when

prep baseball you’re down, you’re not out. There’s never a sense of defeat with these guys,” PCA coach Jerry Bourne said. The ability to come from behind has been a potent weapon for PCA. It has won 10 consecutive playoff games dating to last year’s championship run. Although there are five new starters in the lineup this season, center fielder Colby Rushing said the newcomers seem to have inherited the same neversay-die attitude that the veterans have shown. “Last year we had the nickname ‘Comeback Kids’ and there’s some carry over. That’s how we play at Porters Chapel,” Rushing said. “Our heads don’t get down. That’s what we do a good job with. We’ve got some new players this year and they’re

The only things that could slow down Ole Miss and Mississippi State on Sunday were the weather and the rulebook. Ole Miss finished a three-game sweep of the Bulldogs with a 19-11 victory, cut short by rain and a Southeastern Conference rule that prevents an inning from starting after 6 p.m. on Sunday. The first Taylor three Hashman innings of the game took nearly two hours to play and included a combined 15 runs from the two teams. After a 4-2 pitchers’ duel in Friday’s opener, Ole Miss and State scored 52 runs on 53 hits in the last two games. The sweep was Ole Miss’ first in Starkville since 1972. “It was just a crazy, crazy baseball game,” Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco said. “I’m proud of the guys hanging in there. It was a long, hard-fought weekend. We played well offensively today and got some clutch hits with two outs. They played great offensively as well. At times it seemed like the only way to get an out was to strike somebody out. We’re fortunate that we swung it well today, in a day when we needed all the hits.” The Rebels’ 10th consecutive victory pulled them into a tie for first in the SEC West with Arkansas, which lost 13-2 to Auburn on Sunday and dropped two out of three in that series. Ole Miss (33-13, 14-7 SEC) and Arkansas (35-10, 14-7) play a threegame set in Oxford next weekend. Ole Miss heads into the series with Arkansas as the hottest team in the SEC. Every starter had at least one hit in Sunday’s finale against Mississippi State (20-23, 5-16), and the Rebels totaled 15 hits. They scored four runs in the fifth inning and six more in the sixth to blow open the slugfest. The surge was capped by Taylor Hashman’s threerun homer in the sixth. Hashman finished with four RBIs, while Matt Snyder was 3-for-4 with three RBIs and three runs scored. Tim Ferguson was 3-for-5 and scored four runs. Snyder, Hashman and Ferguson all homered. Russ Sneed went 3-for-5 with a homer, three RBIs and three runs scored for Mississippi State and Sam Frost was 4-for-4 with two RBIs and two runs scored.

Golf McIlroy storms to Quail Hollow title CHARLOTTE, N.C. — All the buzz about Rory McIlroy came to life at the Quail Hollow Championship with one dazzling shot after another in a record round that made him the PGA Tour’s youngest winner since Tiger Woods. Explosive as ever, the 20-yearold from Northern Ireland was 5 under over the final five holes to set the course record at 10-under 62 and win by four shots over Masters champion Phil Mickelson (68). McIlroy finished in style, rolling in a 40-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole and thrusting his fist into the air. With a one-shot lead, McIlroy — who will turn 21 on Tuesday — hit a 5-iron from 207 yards up the hill to 3 feet for eagle on the 15th. From a fairway bunker on the 16th, he hit 7-iron to 5 feet for another birdie. Then came the finish, when he knocked in the 40-foot putt. Woods, who missed the cut this week, was 20 years, 10 months when he won his first PGA Tour title in Las Vegas in 1996.

Eger wins Champions tournament in Saucier SAUCIER — David Eger won the inaugural Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic for his first Champions Tour title since 2005, closing with a 3-under 69 in rainy, windy conditions for a one-stroke victory. Eger, the 58-year-old former USGA and PGA Tour executive who was a longtime amateur star, made a 3-foot birdie putt on No. 16 to take a two-stroke lead, an extra stroke he needed after bogeying the 18th to finish at 11 under. Tommy Armour III shot a 67 to finish second. He three-putted from 60 feet for a bogey on the par-3 17th, and finished with a par.

Japanese golfer shoots record 58 TOGO, Japan — Ryo Ishikawa shot a 12-under 58 — the lowest score ever on a major tour — to win The Crowns on Sunday for his seventh Japan Tour title. The 18-year-old Ishikawa birdied nine of the first 11 holes Sunday. He added birdies on Nos. 14-16 and closed with two pars. Ishikawa broke the Japan Tour record of 59 set by Masahiro Kuramoto in the first round of the 2003 Acom International. On the PGA Tour, Al Geiberger, Chip Beck and David Duval share the record at 59. Annika Sorenstam also had a 59 on the LPGA Tour. In 2000 in a U.S. Open qualifier, Maruyama shot a 13-under 58.


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS May 3 2000 — The Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves 6-4, ending Atlanta’s franchise-record 15-game winning streak, the longest in the majors since 1991 and the National League’s longest since 1951. 2001 — Dallas, with an 84-83 win over Utah, becomes the sixth team in NBA history to win a five-game series after trailing 0-2. The Mavericks rally from double-digit deficits in all three wins, including 17 in Game 5. 2003 — Funny Cide becomes the first gelding since Clyde Van Dusen in 1929 to win the Kentucky Derby. Ridden by Jose Santos, Funny Cide holds off 5-2 top choice Empire Maker by 1 3/4 lengths, making his decisive move midway on the final turn. 2007 — Golden State is the first No. 8 seed to capture a best-ofseven playoff series with a 111-86 victory over the NBA-best Dallas Mavericks in Game 6. The Warriors are only the third eighth seed to upset the No. 1 and the first since the opening round went from bestof-five to the current format. The Denver Nuggets (1994) and the New York Knicks (1999) are the only other No. 8 teams to win a series.

Tigers drop sixth straight SEC game From staff reports Senior centerfielder Matt den Dekker collected five hits and four RBIs Sunday to lead Florida to a 13-6 win over LSU and a series sweep of the Tigers. Den Dekker homered and finished 5-for-5. Austin Maddox hit a three-run homer and Brian Johnson hit a grand slam in the fourth inning that put the Gators (31-11, 15-6 Southeastern Conference) ahead 10-1. LSU (32-13, 11-10) lost for the eighth time in 11 games in SEC play and fell into fourth place in the Western Division. It is still three games ahead of Alabama for the eighth and final spot in the conference tournament — and has the tiebreaker edge on the Crimson Tide thanks to a series sweep — with nine league games remaining. LSU was swept for the second consecutive weekend. “This was tough weekend for us against a great team,” LSU coach Paul Mainieri said. “it’s hard to win when you’re playing from behind as much as we were the whole series. We have to move forward — there’s still a lot of baseball left, including three very important conference weekends.”

college baseball another place higher in the standings for Southern Miss. The Golden Eagles scored six runs in the first two innings Sunday, then added four more in the third on the way to a 13-9 win over Tulane. The victory, USM’s seventh in a row overall and sixth straight in Conference USA play, finished a sweep and moved it into a tie for fourth place in the league standings with East Carolina. Those teams play a three-game series next weekend in Hattiesburg. Taylor Walker homered and drove in four runs for Southern Miss (25-17, 8-7 C-USA), while Kameron Brunty, B.A. Vollmuth and Dillon Day had three hits apiece. Southern Miss had 10 of its 15 hits in the first four innings. Walker hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning after Tulane cut it to 6-3, and Day’s RBI single put USM ahead 10-3. A three-run homer by Blake Crohan cut it to 11-9 in the bottom of the sixth, but Tulane couldn’t get any closer. Mandella Mingo, Jay Myrick and Collin Cargill combined for four scoreless innings of relief to slam the door on the Green Wave. Cargill allowed one hit in two innings for his seventh save of the season. Crohan had five RBIs for Tulane (26-19, 6-9) and Jeremy

Auburn 13, Arkansas 2 Grant Dayton struck out 10 batters in seven innings, and Trent Mummey went 3-for-5 with a homer as Auburn (3015, 12-9 SEC) routed Arkansas (35-10, 14-7). The Tigers took two out of three in the week-

end series and are now two games behind the Razorbacks and Ole Miss for first place in the SEC West. Kevin Patterson and Casey McElroy had four RBIs apiece for Auburn. Zack Cox and Andy Wilkins hit solo homers one batter apart in the sixth inning to account for Arkansas’ runs.

Braves snap out of funk ATLANTA (AP) — Jason Heyward knows the Atlanta Braves can’t dwell on their three-game sweep of slumping Houston. Heyward said the Braves, like the Astros, “are still in last place and still have some work to do.” Heyward and Melky Cabrera each drove in three runs and the Braves beat Houston 7-1 on Sunday, handing the Astros their sixth straight loss. “Let’s keep it going,” Heyward said. Heyward, the rookie sensation who had homers in three straight games before Sunday, had two hits. He ranks among the NL leaders with seven homers and 23 RBIs and has demonstrated a flair for key hits in his first month in the major leagues. “I think what makes it most impressive is when he gets his hits and RBIs,” Braves starter Derek Lowe said. “You know it’s not by accident he’s having the success he’s having.” The Braves outscored the Astros 21-4 in their first threegame sweep of Houston since 2003. The modest winning streak followed nine straight losses, Atlanta’s longest skid in almost four years. “We needed to get on track,

It took Jacksonville two innings to turn a pitchers’ duel into a blowout Sunday. Brandon Tripp and Mike Stanton both homered as the Suns scored five runs in the sixth inning and four more in the eighth to beat the Mississippi Braves 10-4. Tripp, who entered as a defensive replacement in the

The Hawks have no one who can guard Howard one-on-one, so they’ll have to give center Al Horford plenty of help at the defensive end. “Hopefully, we’ll come up with something that works,” Smith said. “If that doesn’t work, we’ll go to Plan B. If that doesn’t work, we’ll go to Plan C. He’s a beast, and he’s a wellrested beast, too.”

Lakers 104, Jazz 99 Kobe Bryant scored 11 of his 31 points in the final four minutes, and the Los Angeles Lakers blew a fourth-quarter lead before rallying to beat the Jazz in their second-round series opener. Pau Gasol had 25 points and 12 rebounds for the top-seeded Lakers, who played a dismal final period before Bryant seized control. Last season’s NBA finals MVP coolly scored seven consecutive points to erase Utah’s four-point lead, followed by a dynamic slice through the lane for a layup with 22.6 seconds left. Deron Williams scored 24 points for fifth-seeded Utah, which managed just one more field goal after taking a 93-89 lead with 4:10 to play. Utah has lost 15 straight to the Lakers at Staples Center, including seven playoff games. Los Angeles will host Game 2 of the best-of-seven series on Tuesday night.

Surge propels Jacksonville past M-Braves From staff reports

The Atlanta Hawks went the distance in a series that was much tougher than anyone expected. They can only hope the Orlando Magic will be a little rusty in the next round of the playoffs. By the time the Eastern Conference semifinals begin Tuesday night, the Magic will have been sitting around for eight days, having wasted no time sweeping Charlotte in their opening-round series. The Hawks, on the other hand, needed a gutty Game 6 win in Milwaukee just to keep their season alive, then finished off the Bucks with a 95-74 rout in the deciding game Sunday. The Hawks will make the short flight to Orlando today, having only two days to prepare for an opponent that beat them by six games in the Southeast Division standings and three of four times uring the regular season. Nevertheless, Jamal Crawford can see a good side to jumping right into another best-of-seven series against a well-rested opponent. “It’s tough when you’re off a while,” said Crawford, who scored 22 points to lead the Hawks past Milwaukee. “We have a nice rhythm going right now.” Indeed, the third-seeded Hawks fully expect to put up more of a fight against No. 2 Orlando than they did a year ago in the second round, when LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers ended Atlanta’s season with a four-game sweep. “It’s a good matchup both ways,” Hawks star Joe Johnson said. “But we’ve got to be more hungry and determined to get over the hump. We can’t just beat this team based on talent. We’ve got to play harder.” The Magic routed Atlanta

The M-Braves took a 2-1 lead in the second inning on Cody Johnson’s sixth home run of the season. Johnson started another rally in the top of the sixth with a single, stole second and third, then scored on a base hit by Concepcion Rodriguez to make it 3-1. The lead didn’t last long. After Tripp’s homer, the Suns loaded the bases with two outs in the bottom of the

sixth. Matt Dominguez drew a bases-loaded walk to tie the game, and Torres doubled to center to clear the bases and give Jacksonville the lead for good. The teams were to play the finale of a five-game series this morning. The M-Braves are off on Tuesday before returning home to Trustmark Park for a matinee with Birmingham at 11:05 a.m. Wednesday.

The young kids have done a good job taking what we’ve told them and using it.” The sweep of Calvary marked the halfway point in PCA’s quest for a second consecutive Class A championship. PCA will face Riverfield in the South State finals this week. The best-of-three series begins Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Rayville, La., with Games 2 and 3 in Vicksburg on Thursday at 4 p.m. It’s a remarkable spot to be in for a team that didn’t win more than three games in a row before its current six-game winning streak. The turning point, Rushing said, was a 15-1 loss to Trinity on April 5. That served as a wake-up call to the Eagles

that they needed to pick up the pace if they wanted to play deep into May. “They helped us out because we got drummed. But we played our worst game,” Rushing said. Trinity may have helped out PCA in the regular season, but didn’t do any favors for it in the playoffs. The Saints beat Riverfield in Game 1 of their secondround series last week, then lost 17-11 and 11-3 in Games 2 and 3. That allowed Riverfield, which boasts a 25-2 record, to advance to the semifinals. Pitcher Kyle King threw 11 innings, including a complete game in Game 2, for Riverfield in the doubleheader.

Douglas: Son’s jail sentence ‘adequate’ Michael Douglas believes his son’s five-year sentence for dealing drugs could be a lifesaver, he said Monday on NBC’s “Today,” describing the prison term as “adequate.” Douglas expressed hope that incarceration would give 31-year-old Cameron Douglas the time he needs to kick the drug habit that has plagued him since he was 13. “He was going to be dead or somebody was going to kill him,” Douglas said. “My son was a drug dealer, and he tried to kill himself for a while, and I can’t condone his behavior.” Last month, a judge sentenced Cameron Douglas to five years for dealing methamphetamine from a trendy Manhattan hotel. “It’s going to take that amount of time for him to rebuild and start himself afresh,” Douglas said. Douglas said his son’s spirit is good but added that the past year’s imprisonment awaiting a sentence has been “really, really difficult.”

Bruce Springsteen, right, and actor Danny DeVito perform after DeVito’s induction into the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

Nicholson, DeVito join N.J. Hall of Fame Bruce Springsteen introduced Danny DeVito into New Jersey’s Hall of Fame then the two teamed up to perform “Glory Days” in tribute to their home state. Actors Jack Nicholson and Susan Sarandon, author Judy Blume and 10 other prominent New Jerseyans also were inducted into the New Jersey Hall in Newark on Sunday. Nicholson, a devout Los Angeles Lakers fan, skipped a playoff game to attend. DeVito said the Jersey influence runs through all his work. Rounding out the class were Olympian Carl Lewis; architect Michael Graves; singer Frankie Valli; astronaut Wally Schirra; musicians Les Paul and Count Basie; author Philip Roth; former President Woodrow Wilson; former Supreme Court Justice William Brennan; baseball player Larry Doby; and women’s rights advocate Alice Paul.

Polanski asks ‘to be treated fairly’ Filmmaker Roman Polanski, breaking a months-long silence, said Sunday that the U.S. is demanding his extradition from Switzerland on a 33-year-old sex case largely to serve him “on a platter to the media.” Polanski, who is under house arrest in his Alpine Swiss chalet, laid out his case against extradition on an online magazine run by one of his staunchest supporters, French philosopher Roman Polanski Bernard-Henri Levy. “I have had my share of dramas and joys, as we all have, and I am not going to try to ask you to pity my lot in life,” he wrote. “I ask only to be treated fairly like anyone else.” Polanski suggests the case against him is unjust and riddled with problems. Each argument begins with the phrase: “I can remain silent no longer.” One of Polanski’s complaints is that Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley, “who is handling this case and has requested (the) extradition, is himself campaigning for election and needs media publicity!” Cooley is running for California attorney general. The district attorney’s spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said the office “will withhold comment until the Swiss make a decision on his fugitive status.” Swiss authorities are trying to decide whether to extradite Polanski to Los Angeles for having sex in 1977 with a 13-year-old girl.

‘As the World Turns’ matriarch Wagner dies at 91 NEW YORK (AP) — Actress Helen Wagner, who played mild-mannered Nancy Hughes on the CBS soap opera “As the World Turns” for more than a half-century and spoke its first words, has died at age 91. She died Saturday, said the show’s New York-based production company, TeleNext Media Inc., which didn’t say where she died or the cause of her death. Wagner opened “As the World Turns” when it premiered on April 2, 1956, with the words: “Good morning, dear.” She held the Guinness World Record for playing the same role on television for the longest amount of time, 54 years, TeleNext Media said. “All of us at ‘As the World Turns’ are deeply saddened by

Helen’s passing,” executive producer Christopher Goutman said in a statement. “She is loved by generations of Helen fans, and while Wagner we will miss her greatly Helen will always remain the heart and soul of ‘As the World Turns.”’ While Wagner, who was born in Lubbock, Texas, was seen less often in later decades, no other network television performer came close to her run playing a single character. She was still part of the cast, though with a small presence, in December 2009, when CBS announced that “As the World

Turns” was being canceled and its last episode would air in September 2010. Her final appearance aired April 5, in an episode in which Julianne Moore, a series regular in the 1980s whose two halfsister characters played Wagner’s granddaughters, returned for a guest walk-on. The episode was taped in March. “As the World Turns” was the first daytime TV drama to run a full half-hour rather than 15 minutes. It rose to No. 1 in the daytime ratings and, in the 1970s, was expanded to an hour. In a 1968 New York Times interview, Wagner called Nancy “a tentpole character.” Real life intruded on the show in historic fashion on Nov. 22, 1963, when “As the World

Turns” was still performed live on air. Wagner’s character was talking about upcoming Thanksgiving plans (“I’ve thought about it, and I gave it a great deal of thought ...”) when the broadcast was interrupted midsentence with a “CBS News Bulletin” sign. Viewers then heard Walter Cronkite announcing that President John F. Kennedy had been shot in Dallas. The actors themselves weren’t told at the time. In a 1998 Associated Press interview, Wagner said she wished her character hadn’t receded into the background in later years while most of the plot developments happened to the younger characters.

‘Nightmare,’ ‘Iron Man’ leading at box office LOS ANGELES (AP) — Freddy Krueger is raking in cash at the box office again, while Robert Downey Jr.’s “Iron Man 2” got off to a big start overseas. A remake of the slasher flick “A Nightmare on Elm Street” led the weekend with a $32.2 million debut domestically, according to studio estimates Sunday. Released by the Warner Bros. banner New Line, the movie features Jackie Earle Haley as Krueger, a psycho killer who stalks and slays victims in their dreams. Paramount’s “Iron Man 2” got an international head start on its domestic debut this Friday, pulling in $100.2 million in 53 foreign markets. While Hollywood blockbusters typically open around the same date in most countries, some get an overseas jump of a week or more on their U.S. debuts. “Iron Man 2” brought in $12.2 million in Great Britain, $10.8 million in South Korea, $8.8 million in Australia and $8.2 million in France. According to Paramount, the sequel had bigger openings than 2008’s “Iron Man” in every market. “Iron Man 2” continues the story of Downey’s billionaire superhero, a genius who builds himself a metal suit loaded with gadgets. Mickey Rourke co-stars as a new enemy with his own hightech arsenal. Fright films typically drop steeply in their second weekends, since hardcore horror fans rush out to see them in the first few days. But “A Nightmare on Elm Street” already is headed toward a solid profit after an opening weekend that roughly matched its modest produc-

Given the history of slasher sagas — the original 1984 “A Nightmare on Elm Street” was followed by seven sequels — the franchise likely has a long life ahead of it. “It’s certainly something we would entertain, the same with ‘Friday the 13th,”’ another New Line horror series that was revived last year and has

a sequel in the works, said Dan Fellman, head of distribution at Warner Bros. “A Nightmare on Elm Street” was unable to match the fresh start of “Friday the 13th,” whose remake had a $40 million opening weekend in February 2009. This weekend’s other new wide release, Brendan Fraser’s family comedy “Furry Vengeance,” bombed with just $6.5 million. The Summit Entertainment release stars Fraser as a housing developer assailed by the cute woodland creatures whose habitat is threatened by construction. The previous weekend’s No. 1 movie, DreamWorks Animation’s hit “How to Train Your Dragon,” slipped to second place with $10.8 million, raising its total to $192.4 million. While “A Nightmare on Elm Street” opened well, overall business was modest, continuing a lull as theaters prepare for the summer season, Hollywood’s busiest time. With “Iron Man 2,” new potential blockbusters will

start arriving virtually every weekend through August. Downey’s “Iron Man” premiered domestically with a whopping $98.6 million weekend, ranking No. 15 on the chart for best debuts. “What ’Nightmare on Elm Street’ did is bridge the gap between the middling last part of spring leading into the summer,” said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for “’Iron Man 2,’ I’m prepared to say, is going to be one of the biggest openings of all time. Interest is huge.” In limited release, Sony Pictures Classics’ “Please Give” opened strongly with $128,696 in five theaters, averaging a healthy $25,739 a cinema. That compares with an average of $9,665 in 3,332 theaters for “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” “Please Give” stars Catherine Keener and Oliver Platt as a Manhattan couple who buy an elderly neighbor’s adjoining apartment — with the stipulation that the old woman can live out her life there before the buyers can do any expanding and remodeling.

TV academy honors 8 shows ‘with a conscience’ LOS ANGELES (AP) — A “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” episode about prejudice and an Alzheimer’s documentary with Maria Shriver are among eight programs to be honored Wednesday for demonstrating the power of TV. The third annual Television Academy Honors spotlighting shows found to exemplify “television with a conscience” will be hosted by Dana Delany. The announcement was made by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Presenters were scheduled to include former Vice President Al Gore, Joel Grey and Shriver, the first lady of California and former NBC News correspondent. “This is about the television community and the people who work in it putting their heart and soul into their work,” said academy Chairman and CEO

John Shaffner. “None of these stories would be told if someone didn’t say, ‘I have to do this.”’ In the vast media sea, he said, the Academy Honors are “here to keep our mind on the main thing: TV can really matter and make a difference,” Shaffner said. The programs to be honored: • “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” for the episode “Coup de Grace,” which takes on racial bias and profiling in a story about an off-duty officer’s accidental killing by a colleague. • “Glee” for the episode “Wheels,” which highlights entrenched biases, including

those faced by people with disabilities. • “Private Practice” for the episode “Nothing to Fear,” about physicians dealing with the moral, legal and ethical issues raised by an ailing man’s request for assisted suicide. • “Taking Chance,” a film about the journey of an Army officer shepherding the remains of a soldier killed in combat in Iraq to his final resting place. • “Explorer: Inside Death Row,” about Texas’ use of the death penalty and the effect on three inmates awaiting execution, their families and those involved in carrying out the sentences.

• “Grandpa, Do You Know Who I Am? With Maria Shriver,” a film about children dealing with grandparents with Alzheimer’s and narrated by Shriver, whose father, R. Sargent Shriver, has the disease. • “Unlocking Autism,” about efforts to understand the causes of autism and to find therapies to treat the developmental disability. — “Vanguard” for the episode “The OxyContin Express,” an investigation of prescription drug abuse and the route the drugs take from Florida to Appalachia. The awards will be presented at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Man adopts bachelor’s habits right after marriage Dear Abby: It seems the moment we got married a year ago, my husband promptly started gaining weight and adopting horrible habits. He has put on more than 100 pounds. I don’t want to nag him, but the magnitude of his bad habits is making me contemplate divorce. If he hasn’t learned things like “garbage goes into the garbage can” or “aim for the bowl” by his age, is there any hope? Should I let him know our marriage may be in trouble? — Still a Newlywed in Utah Dear Still a Newlywed: Are you telling me that you have sat in silence for an entire year while witnessing major changes in your husband’s behavior since the wedding? Something may be wrong with him, and he should be examined stem-to-stern by a doctor. Your husband may have a serious problem, and it follows that if he does, your marriage will, too. So for both your sakes, speak up, schedule him for a physical and try to remember that line you uttered regarding “in sickness



and in health.” Dear Abby: I have been dating “Irving” for about a year. He is intelligent, financially stable and loves me and my son. However, over the last seven or eight months he has said some things that have hurt me very much. For instance, he has told me to watch what I say around his business associates, and when he thinks I have been too loud around them, he tells me afterward — almost in a fatherly tone — that I need to keep it low key. He isn’t the most sensitive or compassionate man I have ever met, and I find those to be important qualities in a mate. Irving has also made comments about my weight — specifically, that he doesn’t want me to gain any. Some of my friends are tell-


BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: Old, lingering, negative conditions will finally fade from your life in the year ahead. You should now be able to make some of those significant changes you were fearful to initiate, which could enable you to produce many benefits for yourself. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — You can do a friend an enormous favor today by influencing him/her in seeing all the positive things life has to offer, instead of dwelling only on the dark side of things. Do what you can. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Don’t be so quick to reject change that is foisted upon you today. Once you get a chance to analyze what it has to offer, you might surprise yourself by how much you like it. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Put forth your best effort with an arrangement that you have to make. Even if its benefits are hard to see and may even be slow in coming, it could turn out to be the best thing that you could do for yourself. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Be industrious today for profitable purposes. In other words, devote as much time and effort as you can to situations or jobs that have a bigger than usual rate of producing large material rewards. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Your friends aren’t likely to mind you coming up with some unusual ideas of what to do socially, because collectively they’ll decide that what you suggest offers the best time for everybody.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Sometimes it is essential to disengage oneself from outside involvements in order to focus solely on a personal situation. Today might be one of those times for you. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — An associate who knows you are likely to be interested in a potentially beneficial commercial arrangement could come to you today about just such a deal.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m a 21-year-old guy who had enjoyed smoking for over five years, but alas, I had to quit my vice because I lost my job and couldn’t afford my expensive habit. My grandfather said that when he was in high school in the 1950s, cigarettes were under 25 cents a pack and under $2 for a carton of 10 packs. He said that the main reason for the price of cigarettes today (over $4 a pack) is that they had an outrageous increase in taxes on cigarettes. Again, the poor (me) suffer and the rich have tobacco pleasure. For the rich, it doesn’t matter if the price of cigarettes rises to $20 a pack. They will pay it and enjoy the pleasure of tobacco. I know you cannot find a job for me or get the government and tobacco companies to lower the price of cigarettes, but still, I’d like to hear your comments on my disastrous “tobacco-free” problem. — Bud, Talladega, Ala. Bud: Actually, you are fortunate, while those who continue smoking regardless of the cost of tobacco products are, shall I say, very foolish. Hopefully, you will stay “tobacco-free” for the rest of your life. You can save a lot of money if you do, and the health benefits that go with a “tobacco-free” life are priceless. There are extremely few benefits of being unemployed. But eliminating the use of tobacco, alcohol and illegal drugs because of a lack of funds is a benefit. I wish you success in finding employment. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

ing me to drop him, but I have invested a year in this guy and I hate to think it was for nothing. He’s been talking marriage, and in the beginning I was excited. Now, I’m not so sure it’s a good idea. Can you help? — Cautious in Tennessee Dear Cautious: If you’re looking for a supportive mate, Irving doesn’t appear to be the man for you. To stay with him because you have invested 12 months in the relationship is not sufficient reason to invest still more time. Face it, his tone may be “fatherly,” but he’s not your father, and he’ll always be critical. Dear Abby: We will visit my in-laws for the holidays next December with our new baby. We stay in a hotel when we visit because the in-laws are both chain smokers and I am a non-smoker who is sensitive to smoke. This has created some distance between my inlaws and me. When we have visited in the past I resigned myself to the fact that they will smoke through our dinners and conversations. Now that we have a little

one, I do not want my in-laws to smoke in front of the baby. They don’t visit us; we visit them once a year. Can I ask that they not smoke in their home while my family is visiting? — Michele in Washington, D.C. Dear Michele: No. And even if your in-laws agreed, taking your baby into a house in which the carpets, walls and furniture are saturated with smoke would be counterproductive. When you visit, arrange your get-togethers at your hotel or in the home of other relatives who are non-smokers. Out of love for their grandchild, your in-laws should cooperate. If you need backup in making the request, discuss this with your baby’s pediatrician and get the facts and statistics about how damaging first-, second- and thirdhand smoke is on a little one’s respiratory system.

Broken blood vessels cause trouble for reader Dear Dr. Gott: I read an article about a person who broke blood vessels frequently. I used to break them at least three times a week, so my doctor ran blood tests. She told me to increase my vitamin C intake, which I did. But what really helped was when I started drinking tart cherry-juice concentrate, usually taken for joint pain. I still break blood vessels but not as frequently and only in my fingers or toes. Dear Reader: A contusion or bruise occurs when tiny blood vessels near the surface of the skin are damaged or broken. This is often the result of a direct blow to the skin, such as hitting a hand or shin against a piece of furniture. Blood leaks from the injured blood vessels into the surrounding tissues, and a colorful bruise results. We tend to bruise much more readily as we age, perhaps because blood vessels become more fragile and skin thins. Also, a number of medications, including aspirin and anticoagulants, can cause bruising at the slightest pressure. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that can’t be manufactured in the human body. This vital component is obtained through diet and supplements but must be taken in moderation, because excesses can lead to abdominal distress, an increase in iron absorption and kidney stones. Vitamin C is necessary for synthesis of collagen, an important structural component of blood vessels. This antioxidant is necessary for the growth and repair of tissues and the healing of wounds. With deficiency, easy bruising, weakened blood vessels, joint pain and bleeding can result. Vitamin K, produced by bacteria in the intestines, aids in blood clotting. Low levels of that vitamin can lead to excessive bleeding. Cherry-juice concentrate has been touted to control symptoms of gout, arthritis, headaches and a host of other ailments. The Food and Drug Administration warns manufacturers with regard to making false statements. Nonetheless, it certainly is possible that if you have less joint pain, you are less likely to stub your toes, bang your knees or whack your hands. The product cannot harm you and may be safer than some prescription drugs. I would feel better if you were to have your physician perform a complete examination to rule out any unknown medical conditions. Dear Dr. Gott: I have a hiccup remedy that works. Stop up both ears with your fingers while drinking water. Because the act takes three hands, you’ll need someone to lend one. This is a surefire way to stop them quickly. Dear Reader: Well, the
