Nursing changes more than uniform By Tish Butts tbutts@vicksburgpost.com After about 50 years of service, Ola Mae Taylor strolled through an arch of swords to a lobby filled with nurses applauding and cheering for her and nearly 30 others Wednesday during the Retired Nurse Celebration at River Region Medical Center. “It’s wonderful,” said the 82-yearold Taylor. “I didn’t think I would live this long to see it.” Hospital staff honored retired nurses from Mercy Hospital, which was founded around 1900 and became ParkView Regional Medical Center in 1990; Vicksburg Medical Center, which is now River Region Medical Center

West Campus, and River Region, hospital marketing director Diane Gawronski said. Taylor, a former trainee of Kuhn Memorial State Hospital, joined the profession in the 1960s when nurses were required to wear starched and ironed white uniforms with matching caps and

shoes while providing more than half an hour of service to each patient at a time. Nowadays, they wear scrubs of varying colors and sneakers. “We did everything when we were nurses. We emptied the bed pans. We bathed the patients. We fed the patients. We got up and we walked the patients,” said Taylor. These days hospitals often don’t have enough nurses on staff to provide that level of personal care, she said. “They really don’t have enough help on the floor to really get close to the patient and sit down and talk with them when you go in the rooms and check on them,” See Nurses, Page A6.

More cameras to focus on river tourists By Danny Barrett Jr. dbarrett@vicksburgpost.com Two more cameras will survey areas around the old U.S. 80 bridge across the Mississippi River to prevent tourists from finding their way onto the bridge’s rail tracks. Vicksburg Bridge Commission members OK’d spending $1,590 to purchase the electronic eyes from Memphis-based Access Technologies Inc., which supplied the 11 cameras installed in 2006 at various points on the 80-year-old bridge. The cameras have been instrumental in bridge officials’ views of the river near the bridge and aiding reconstruction of barge strikes to the bridge’s piers.

Work is expected to begin next week to move a 36-inch concrete water main at Washington and Jackson streets that was thrown into jeopardy during a March 26 land shift. At a special called meeting Wednesday afternoon, the Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved a contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers — which has agreed to pay for the $1.36 million project — clearing the way for the city to get a contract in place with Hemphill Construction of Vicksburg. “Starting the first part of next week, we hope to see a contractor on site,” Public Works Director Bubba Rainer told the board following the meeting. “We will issue them a notice to proceed probably on Monday or Tuesday, and from that point they’ll have 30 days to complete the project.” The pipe — a vital link in daily water service to the city’s 10,000 metered customers from its water

WASHINGTON — The first firm evidence of what likely caused the disastrous Gulf of Mexico oil blowout — a devastating sequence of equipment failures — drives home a central Gulf called best, unsettling point cheapest place about Amerito drill ca’s oil industry: key safety features at thousands of U.S. offshore wells are barely regulated. Wednesday’s hearings by congressional and administration panels — in Washington and in Louisiana — laid out a checklist of unseen breakdowns on largely unregulated aspects of well safety that appear to have contributed to the April 20 blowout: a leaky cement job, a loose hydraulic fitting, a dead battery. The trail of problems highlights the reality that, even as the U.S.

from staff reports to have been inadequately engineered, but the VFW did not make corrections to it or give Pecanty further compensation. Pecanty’s husband subsequently became ill, and the VFW property was acquired by Mississippi Southern Bank, as merged with State Bank and Trust Company of Cleveland, and later by Jimmy and Sheila Tarver. The Supreme Court’s ruling states that Pecanty “began focusing all of her attention on her husband’s convalescence,” and after his death in 2006 began working again to get the erosion and wall corrected. Eventually, she filed a complaint in Warren County Chancery Court against the VFW as well as the bank and later added the Tarvers to the action. She sought monetary damages as well as corrections to the retaining wall. Defense attorneys for the bank and for the Tarvers claimed the complaint fell outside the three-year statute of limitations. The Chancery Court agreed, dismissing the complaint, a decision Pecanty appealed. Ruling Tuesday, the Supreme Court upheld the Chancery Court decision, “finding no liability” on their parts for the damages to Pecanty’s property. The building is now used as a day care.

Rush to drill deeper carries added risks, challenges ‘You can’t find oil any cheaper anywhere else’ NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig illustrates the energy industry’s push to drill in ever deeper waters in search of huge oil deposits, despite the mammoth risks and unique challenges associated with exploration in such a hostile environment. The lure of the deep is driven by technological advances that make previously inaccessible oil now reachable, and dwindling supplies at shallower depths due to years of exploration. High energy prices and lucrative government incentives have also made it more financially feasible. “That’s where the oil is,� said Eric Smith, associate director of Tulane University’s Energy Institute. “You can’t find any oil any cheaper anywhere else.� But the work is highly technical. In mile-deep seas, where BP PLC’s Deepwater Horizon rig was plumbing for oil in an ocean canyon, the work is done in total darkness and near-freezing temperatures. Water pressure is enough to crush a submarine, and the explosive methane gas that likely ignited on the Deepwater Horizon can be much more damaging if not properly controlled. “The deep water is way too risky,� said Kieran Suck-

Gulf of Mexico oil is a crucial part of the U.S. energy supply. While land-based production has steadily declined, output from the Gulf has doubled over the past two decades, surpassing that of any state including Texas and Alaska. More companies are developing projects in mile-deep seas, and most of the oil produced in the Gulf now comes from sites more than 1,000 feet below the water’s surface. D r i l l i n g ap p l i c a t i o n s approved by the federal government last year went to wells at an average depth of 2,114 feet — triple what was seen just a decade ago, according to an Associated Press analysis of data from the fed-

eral Minerals Management Service. This expansion of drilling ever deeper was fueled by the 1995 Deep Water Royalty Relief Act, which exempts companies from paying a percentage of royalties to the government on oil and gas found. “Prior to that, the Gulf was becoming a dead sea in terms of exploration activities,� said David Dismukes, director of policy analysis at Louisiana State University’s Center for Energy Studies. “The relief act stimulated a lot of activity ... and concerns about environmental safety in the Gulf.� Politically, U.S.-produced oil from the Gulf of Mexico is an easier sell than continued reliance on foreign sources or tapping pristine Alaskan wilderness.

4 children die in Louisiana house fire RAGLEY, La. — Four children were killed in a house fire in Beauregard Parish. State Fire Marshal H. “Butch� Browning said Wednesday that a woman and her 3-year-old son, who was sleeping with her, escaped the blaze late Tuesday, but her four other children died from smoke inhalation. Browning said the woman tried to rescue her children, who were in the rear of the home. She suffered burns and smoke inhalation, and was in stable condition at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital. Her name and the name of the surviving child were not released. The victims — all girls — were identified as 11-yearold twins Kamryn and Keiley Lebleu, 8-year-old Kassandra LeBleu and 1-year-old Adrinne LeBleau. All four sisters were pronounced dead at area hospitals.

Robert Marionneaux, D-Livonia, is aimed at protecting workers in casinos and bars from second-hand smoke, which, he said, kills 53,000 Americans and 1,100 Louisianans every year. The proposed bill passed the Senate in a 23-12 vote but is expected to face strong opposition in the House, which killed a similar ban last year. The House Health and Welfare committee last week rejected a much weaker ban that would have required casinos to have smoke-free gaming areas. Marionneaux, during Wednesday’s debate, said that workers in casinos and bars “have every right to breathe clean air just as we do in the Senate.� A ban on smoking in restaurants, schools and workplaces went into effect in January 2007, but the law carved out exemptions for casinos and bars.

Police said he is 6 feet tall and weighs about 135 pounds.

Patient who received bad organ leaves UMC JACKSON, Miss. — A transplant patient who received an organ from an unidentified donor with a rare, undetected parasite has been released from a Jackson hospital. University of Mississippi Medical Center officials identified the patient only as a 27-year-old Alabama man. He was released two weeks ago. He had remained critical for several weeks after receiving the transplant.

PASCAGOULA (AP) — The federal government says a top fisheries science expert will lead a program to test and report risks to fish and shellfish from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and cleanup. The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration said Nancy Thompson flew Wednesday to the agency’s Southeast Fisheries Science Center in Pascagoula. Thompson is director of NOAA’s Northeast Fisher“In terms of oil that’s available to us, it’s either imported from places where it’s bountiful,� Smith said, “or we find deep water deposits off the coast of Africa, Brazil and the Gulf of Mexico.� That is widely expected to continue despite the Deepwater Horizon disaster, which killed 11 workers and has already fouled the Gulf with 4 million gallons of crude. “This country’s pretty well committed to oil and gas, and nobody’s really happy when the price goes through the roof,� said Philip Johnson, a petroleum engineering professor at the University of Alabama. “My suspicion is that we’re going to proceed with production out of the Gulf of Mexico — and that means we’re going to keep trying to get farther and farther

NOAA fisheries official Eric Schwaab says Thompson’s work will allow the Southeast laboratory’s director, Bonnie Ponwith, to focus on other oil spill duties and on regional fisheries management.

offshore.� But the conditions down there have challenged oil companies to come up with technological solutions. Beyond about 1,500 feet, sunlight is unable to penetrate. The temperature at 5,000 feet in the Gulf is about 40 degrees. The water pressure is about 2,300 pounds per square inch, conditions that can damage hydraulic systems or cause leaks. A remotely operated underwater vehicle designed for 5,000 feet of water is “a whole world of different engineering� than one used at 500 feet, said Louisiana State University oceanographer Robert S. Carney. Yet companies must rely on those vehicles to detect or repair leaks and other problems.

Irby files claim against her husband JACKSON (AP) — A woman serving an 18-year prison sentence for a traffic accident that killed two doctors has filed a legal claim against her husband, claiming he contributed to the wreck by striking her as she drove. Karen Irby, 39, pleaded guilty to two counts of culKaren pable negliIrby gence manslaughter in the Feb. 11, 2009, deaths of Mark Pogue and his fiancee, Lisa Dedousis, in Jackson. She admitted driving drunk when her car, carrying her husband, Stuart Irby, slammed into Pogue’s truck. Irby’s claim claims her husband screamed at her and assaulted her while she was driving. She is seeking damages for injuries, medical bills, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. The claim was filed in conjunction with a suit filed by the victims’ families against her and her husband. Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith dismissed Irby’s allegations. Smith pointed out that when Karen Irby pleaded guilty in March, Judge Tomie Green asked her to tell what happened and Karen Irby didn’t say anything about Stuart Irby striking her or helping cause the accident.

OUR OPINION

Bailout

60 YEARS AGO: 1950 The American Legion will dedicate its new building on Monroe Street with Col. Alexander Fitzhugh as main speaker.

International community may keep Greece afloat Greece might yet avoid financial ruin, thanks to loans from its more prosperous European Union fellow members. But everything depends on the Mediterranean nation maintaining the political will to drastically reduce government spending. That’s far from certain. The Greek people seem still unconvinced that radical change is needed. Mobs led by public employee unions are rioting in the street against moves to cut government spending by reducing salaries, benefits and public jobs. Government now consumes 50 percent of gross domestic product. Greece has been borrowing heavily to sustain welfare programs and add workers to the government payroll. The deficit is 13 percent of GDP, and the national debt equal to 125 percent of GDP. Even if Germany, France and the other more stable European Union economies bail out Greece, servicing the resulting debt will consume a quarter of the national economy. That’s not sustainable and would leave Greece with too few dollars to spur an economic recovery. Restructuring its debt seems an inevitable option, but

would roil the economies of its EU backers. This crisis did not develop overnight, nor is it even largely attributable to the global recession. The severe downturn of 2008 certainly hastened Greece’s collapse, but the Greeks have been on this path for years. Greece funded a massive expansion of government with deficit spending, allowed its appetite for government-sponsored social programs to outweigh fiscal discipline and doctored its books to make its finances seem rosier than reality. If that sounds familiar, it should. America and many of its states, including Michigan, are following in Greece’s footsteps. If the Grecian meltdown doesn’t deliver a wake-up call, the United States ultimately could find itself where Greece is today. The U.S. also is determined to charge a great expansion of the welfare state to the national credit card. It will spend onethird more than it takes in this year, and projects $1 trillion budget shortfalls for the next 10 years at least. And like Greece, it is cooking its books. The Bush administration kept the cost of

the Iraq and Afghanistan wars out of the budget, and the Obama administration is hiding the cost of bailing out mortgage giants Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, an obligation that is consuming $10 billion a quarter. Social Security surpluses have been squandered. Michigan, fortunately, is bound by its constitution to balance the budget every year. But it has done so with financial gimmickry for most of the past decade, and now faces an irreconcilable deficit of more than $2 billion. Other states are similarly distressed. The violent demonstrations in Athens last week were the endgame of the protests in American state capitals staged by public workers shouting “raise our taxes” to sustain their jobs and wages. Most states have found it as difficult as has the Greek parliament to say no to these unions. Greece is offering fair warning to the United States. If America doesn’t check its runaway spending, there are predictions its bond rating could be reduced within two years. Greece had similar warnings and chose to ignore them. If America makes the same choice, it can expect the same results.

50 YEARS AGO: 1960 U.S. Senate confirms the appointment of Maj. Gen. Thomas A. Lane as president of the Mississippi River Commission. • Funeral services are held for T.E. Taylor.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler

Who is the real Obama? A uniter or divider? President Barack Obama certainly is not a socialist — let alone a communist — as some of his far-out detractors claim. But he and his aides certainly are in populist “whack industry” mode. From BP to banks, health insurance companies to special interest lobbyists, Obama & Co. pass up no opportunity to slash and bash — except when they are asking for industry cooperation or appealing for national unity. The dichotomy between one rhetorical mood and the other is so pronounced that you almost suspect the administration and its leader are bipolar. Or that they are juggling the need to govern cooperatively with the need to pander to the president’s sometimes-restive left wing and the populist mood du jour. In February, for instance, Obamathe-unifier told the Business Roundtable — that is, big business CEOs — that “a thriving America is within our reach, but only if we move forward as one nation, only if we move past the debates and crippling divides between left and right, business and labor, private enterprise and the public sector.” This came a few weeks after Obama denounced “reckless” “fat cat bankers,” whom he accused of conspiring with House Republicans to “kill financial reform and leave American consumers and our economy vulnerable to another meltdown.”

MORTON

KONDRACKE

My own hunch is that Obama, at heart, is not a socialist but a liberal without the slightest idea of how private enterprises create wealth — and deeply suspicious of their practitioners.

It came amid nonstop vilification of the health insurance industry as Obama sold health care reform — even though that industry initially proposed the basic design of universal coverage, insurance reform and an individual mandate. At an early stage of that campaign, Obama included pharmaceutical companies and hospitals in his “special interest” denunciations — until their lobbyists made sweetheart deals with the administration and, in the case of drug companies, spent $100 million on ads backing his plan. Even though health care reform has passed and is in the midst of a complicated process of implementation — requiring cooperation from the insurance industry — the administration is still on the attack. Late last month, when America’s Health Insurance Plans, the industry lobby, announced that companies would speed up implementation of the law’s ban on rescission of policies

except in cases of fraud, the White House reacted snarkily. “Health reform made rescissions illegal because all Americans should be able to rely on quality care when they need it most,” top Obama health adviser Nancy-Ann DeParle said. “It’s heartening to see that the insurance companies who employed these terrible practices — and fought reform — are coming around doing the right thing by instituting the ban right away. We’ll be watching closely and holding them to their word.” Rescission — canceling an insurance policy — is a “terrible” practice when it’s used to avoid paying a legitimate claim, but in most cases, it’s an anti-fraud device and it’s rare. State regulators say it occurs on less than 0.4 percent of policies. By contrast, Medicare, which pays almost every claim, loses about $60 billion a year to fraud, 10 percent of its total budget. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the Cabinet

officer most responsible for implementing reform, has said she expects the process to involve “hand-to-hand combat” with insurance companies. When insurance companies discovered that the health care law as written did not require them to guarantee insurance to children with preexisting conditions — only to cover children with existing policies — Sebelius accused them of “seeking to avoid or ignore” the law. She threatened to change it by regulation. When the industry agreed to guarantee coverage on its own, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs sent out a tweet: “Kids 1, Insurance 0.” Sebelius, a former Kansas governor and insurance commissioner -- and earlier, chief state lobbyist for trial lawyers, the nemesis of insurance companies — also jumped immediately on disputed allegations that the nation’s largest insurer, WellPoint, systematically cancels coverage for breast cancer victims. The day after a Reuters story made the charge, Sebelius wrote a letter to WellPoint CEO Angela Braly, a celebrated campaigner against breast cancer, urging her to “end the unconscionable practice of deliberately working to deny health insurance to women diagnosed with breast cancer.” Braly wrote Sebelius, “To be absolutely clear, WellPoint does not single out women with breast cancer for rescission. Period.”

The company said it rescinded less than 0.1 percent of all its policies last year, usually because claimants had made significant misstatements of fact in applying for insurance. As Obama has made clear many times, his animus against the insurance industry is “personal,” based on his mother’s struggle with an insurance company when she was battling cancer. But blasting business is not confined to insurance. Last weekend, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar twice said the administration intended to keep its “boot on the neck” of BP over the Gulf oil spill. But then what do we make of Obama at the University of Michigan last week, saying that “vilification and over-the-top rhetoric closes the door to the possibility of compromise”? My own hunch is that Obama, at heart, is not a socialist but a liberal without the slightest idea of how private enterprises create wealth — and deeply suspicious of their practitioners. But he knows that unifying rhetoric is what the country wants to hear. So one day it’s one thing. Another day it’s another. If this is right, it won’t stop, and it’s very sad. •

Nurses Continued from Page A1. said Taylor, who also spent 15 years teaching scrub techniques. While current registered nurse Melissa Breithaupt agreed, she managed to win the patients choice award. For several weeks, patients and visitors nominated nurses and wrote short stories about care they received at the hospital. Breithaupt’s patients remarked on her “outstanding care and personal attention” as well as “demonstration of patience.” “I appreciate the people who wrote the comments. We don’t always get the positive,” said Breithaupt. “I know there are probably plenty of other nurses that deserve this award.” Most of the nursing staff is once again wearing the white uniforms since the arrival of the new Chief Nursing Officer Linda Wymbs, who spearheaded the celebration. “It was a way for us to give back to nurses that have given so much of themselves,” said Wymbs, adding some retirees continue to serve through the River Region auxiliary. “When you’ve spent the majority of your life caring for people, it’s hard to let it go and leave a healing envi-

in technology such as diagnostic imaging and informatics, nurses are seeking higher levels of education, allowing them to enter more specialized fields.

and evolved to assisting doctors in the 1880s following Florence Nightingale’s work during the Crimean War. “Florence Nightingale felt the urge to help others. She had a keen interest in mathematics and statistics, and she blended that with helping people,” said Hopson. In 1854, she organized 38 nurses to care for soldiers

and decreased their death toll during the Crimean War. As one of the most widely known figures in the history of nursing, she opened in 1860 the Nightingale Training School for Nurses, the first formal training program for nurses. Where nurses once remained close to the bedside, now with advancements

Oil Continued from Page A1. does more deepwater offshore drilling in a quest for domestic oil, some key safety components are left almost entirely to the discretion of the companies doing the work. It remains unclear what, if anything, Congress or the Obama administration may do to address these regulatory deficiencies. Meanwhile Wednesday, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour asked for Mississippians to volunteer to help clean up oil on the state’s coast. No oil has yet reached the state’s shores, the governor said in Biloxi, but he’s calling on people in case. He said 9,000 people and 315 vessels have been signed up to help. He urged more people to sign up as leaders

make preparations to protect vital ecosystems with boats, booms and volunteers. He also stressed that tourists should not cancel plans to vacation in the state. “Mississippi is open for business,” he said. On the national front, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has proposed splitting his department’s Minerals Management Service in two to make safety enforcement independent of the agency’s other main function — collecting billions in royalties from the drilling industry. But the events that unfolded in the hours before the blowout on the Deepwater Horizon rig suggest that much more will ultimately need to be done on the regulatory front.

There also remains much to be done to stem the stubborn blowout that has spewed more than 4 million gallons of oil into the Gulf. BP today was still weighing two short-term options to siphon oil to a ship at the surface. Some 210,000 gallons of oil are spewing each day. One was a tube that would be inserted into the original, leaking pipe to suck up the oil. The other was a box that would cover the leak. As the day of the catastrophe got under way on the drilling platform 48 miles off Louisiana, workers were stabilizing the mile-deep exploratory well to mothball until production. The well’s owner, global oil company BP PLC, said today its costs for trying to stop the

gusher, containing the spill and helping Gulf states foot the response tab totaled $450 million, up $100 million since its May 10 update to securities regulators. BP Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said Wednesday the bill increases by at least $10 million a day. Also Wednesday, a group of Louisiana crab fishermen claimed in a lawsuit that Halliburton — with permission from BP and rig owner Transocean — used a new quick-curing cement mix with nitrogen. It supposedly generates more heat than other recipes and could allow dangerous bursts of methane gas to escape up the well.

Those notices range from an initial notice of default to outright repossession. in Louisiana — up 28 percent from March and 64 percent from April 2009. Those notices range from an initial notice of default to outright repossession. But the data aren’t all sunny. While the number of new delinquencies is dropping, the number of borrowers losing their homes is still rising. Banks seized a record 92,000 homes last month. And there are millions more potential foreclosures ahead. Nearly 7.4 million borrowers, or 12 percent of all households with a mortgage, had missed at least one month of payments or were in foreclosure as of March, said Lender Processing Services Inc., a mortgage data research firm. In Louisiana, 404 homes were repossessed, while 1,127 other homeowners received notice of a foreclosure sale. Louisiana ranked 36th among

the states in the number of foreclosure-related actions last month. RealtyTrac, a foreclosure listing firm in Irvine, Calif., reported that nearly 334,000 households, or one in every 387 homes, received a foreclosure-related notice in April. That was down more than 9 percent from March. Economic woes, such as unemployment or reduced income, are the main catalysts for foreclosures this year. Initially, lax lending standards were the culprit, but homeowners with good credit who took out conventional, fixedrate loans are the fastest growing group of foreclosures. As the economy turns around, “you will see an improvement in housing markets and in foreclosure activity,” said Rick Sharga, a RealtyTrac senior vice president. “The problem is that there’s

such a backlog right now.” Lenders are offering a variety of programs to help homeowners modify their loans, but their success rates vary. Hundreds of thousands of homeowners can’t qualify or fall back into default. The Obama administration is managing a $75 billion program that so far has helped about 231,000 homeowners with permanent reductions to their monthly mortgage bills. That’s about 20 percent of the 1.2 million borrowers who started the program over the past year. Foreclosed homes are typically sold at steep discounts, lowering the value of surrounding properties. Cities lose property tax dollars from homes that sit empty and lower property values. Among states, Nevada posted the highest foreclosure rate in April, with one in every 69 households receiving a foreclosure notice. Foreclosures there were up 10 percent from March, but unchanged from a year earlier. Next on the list were Arizona, Florida, California and Michigan.

Rand McNally Atlas features Missisippi road trip JACKSON (AP) — Summer travelers looking for road trip ideas are being pointed toward Mississippi in the latest edition of the Rand McNally Road Atlas. The 2011 edition of the map,

which launched this week, includes a trip from Natchez to Tunica, called “Following Old Man River,” in its Best of the Roads section. Each year, five trips are selected by the map and travel

product company. According to Rand McNally, editors consider locations that are lesser-known, unique, capture the region’s essence and appeal to a broad range of people. The trips average 150

to 200 miles. The other four picks for this year included drives in Alaska and New Hampshire, one around the Lake Erie area and another from Nevada to California.

WILLIAMS

WASHINGTON (AP) — Millions of Americans are still likely to lose their homes in the coming years, but the foreclosure crisis is finally showing signs of subsiding. The number of households facing foreclosure in April fell 2 percent from a year ago, the first annual decline in five years, RealtyTrac said today. Foreclosure actions against Mississippi homeowners fell 29 percent from March to April. Last month, there were 369 foreclosure-related notices in Mississippi — down 29 percent from March and up 10 percent April 2009. Those notices range from an initial notice of default to outright repossession. In Mississippi, 172 homes were repossessed last month. Mississippi ranked 46th among the states in the number of foreclosure-related actions last month. In Louisiana, foreclosure actions against homeowners jumped sharply in April, with many either losing their residence or facing an auction. Last month, there were 1,849 foreclosure-related notices

The city, meanwhile, has been in charge of identifying the new route for the pipe and getting it under contract. An emergency was declared by the mayor and aldermen shortly after the land shift, clearing the way to get proposals instead of sealed bids on the work. Rainer said Hemphill Construction came

Frontage Road, Lot 23, and charged with sale of Oxicontin, a controlled substance. • At 5:55 a.m., Joel Wright, 54, convicted in 1994 of manslaughter, was arrested at his home at 1216 Bonelli St., and charged with the sale of Lorcet, another controlled substance. Wright was released from prison in 2002 after completing a nine-year sentence for a manslaughter conviction in Louisiana, Stewart said. • At 6:09 a.m., Robert Curtis, 52, 1416 Martin Luther King Drive, was arrested at home and charged with sale of crack cocaine. The morning’s first arrest, Hollowell, is in a program with the Warren County Drug Court after being convicted in 2009 of prescrip-

tion forgery, Stewart said. He also was charged last year with contempt of court. The only woman picked up this morning, Williams, was arrested last year on four counts of contempt of court, Stewart said. She also had been arrested for shoplifting in 2008, domestic violence in 2007 and petit larceny in 2006. Curtis was charged with shoplifting in 2009; assault in 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2009; contempt of court in 2006, 2007 and 2008; possession of paraphernalia and sale of cocaine in 1997; and domestic violence in 2005. Wright was arrested in Vicksburg for contempt of court in 2008, simple assault in 2006 and uttering a forgery and domestic violence in 2007, Stewart said.

$3.75 for much of the past year — and an increase reported to the commission in April’s traffic, at 24,207 cars, coincided with news of the company’s 26 percent rise in profits for the first quarter compared to last year and a 2 percent gain in volume for the quarter.

a major headache for motorists, residents, business owners and politicians alike. The 80-year-old bridge is to be replaced with a roadtopped rail tunnel, of which KCS is to pay $4 million. The city verbally agreed to a not-to-exceed $8.6 million contract with Kanzaa Construction last summer, but did not have all the funding in place to ink the deal. The Topeka, Kan., company gave the city an April deadline to find the funds and get the project moving at the agreedupon price or have it rebid. With the deadline looming, the mayor and aldermen voted to rededicate $3.7 in bond funds to the tunnel project that had been borrowed in 2006 and earmarked for paving projects in the North Ward and the final phase of the developing sports complex on Fisher Ferry Road. Winfield said KCS and Kanzaa are still discussing details of the proposed contract the city submitted. The mayor, who had previously held out hopes for an early April ground-breaking, said he expects to hear something from KCS and Kanzaa Construction in the coming weeks. “We’re almost there,” he said, noting workers will be on the ground within 10 days of the contract’s signing.

Saints refuse further comment on lawsuit

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — An attorney for the New Orleans Saints said Wednesday that the team will wait until trial to respond to a former security director’s allegations that the club tried to cover up prescription Vicodin thefts at team headquarters. The Saints won’t settle with Geoffrey Santini and won’t be publicly discussing the lawsuit that he filed against the team until it goes to court, lawyer Phil Wittman said. “We’re in litigation with Mr. Santini and I feel we should proceed with the legal process and not make any media comments at this time,” Wittman said. “The courts don’t like it when you try your case in the papers.” Wittman’s comments came after Santini said in an interview with Gannett Louisiana Newspapers that he regrets not going straight to Saints owner Tom Benson when he found out about missing prescription drugs at team headquarters. Santini says he instead went to general manager Mickey Loomis, who allegedly tried to cover up the theft and improper distribution of Vicodin from the team’s prescription drug locker. Santini wound up resigning in August because of his dispute with Loomis over how the handle the matter and on April 30 filed suit seeking damages and back pay. Santini’s lawsuit says one unnamed staff member stole Vicodin while another was allowed to take an amount that far exceeded an amount appropriate for any known medical condition he had.

Waring sets the table Flashes ready for rematch for St. Al KATIE CARTER•The Vicksburg Post

St. Aloysius catcher Brendan Beesley slides safely into second base as Nanih Waiya’s Jeffrey Hamphill drops the ball on Saturday. St. Al swept Nanih Waiya in the second round and plays archrival Cathedral tonight at 6.

By Ernest Bowker ebowker@vicksburgpost.com

In 2009, Cathedral lost two games. They were the kind that aren’t easily forgotten. Both losses came in the playoffs to hated rival St. Aloysius. Watching the Flashes celebrate a state championship three weeks later only added to the pain. This season, the teams were once again on a collision course. With most of last year’s starters back for both teams, it seemed inevitable there would be a rematch. And now, after three months of games and a year of waiting, it’s here. St. Al (18-7) and Cathedral (19-5) hook up for round two, with a berth in the Class 1A finals on the line. The bestof-three South State championship series begins today in Natchez. “This is why you play and coach. If you’re a fan of baseball, I don’t see how you can miss these games,” St. Al coach Clint Wilkerson said. “It’s not just a rivalry. It’s for a championship.” Over the past eight years, Cathedral has owned St. Al — just not when it really counts. Cathedral has won 11 of the last 13 regular-season meetings between the teams, but St. Al swept their two playoff series in 2002 and 2009. Cathedral swept the regular-season series this year in lopsided fashion, 11-5 and 12-0, and with it the Division 7-1A title. Those losses started a rough 2-6 stretch for the Flashes, and they were quick to give credit to

prep baseball the Green Waves for putting them in that funk. “They gave us quite a whupping,” St. Al pitcher Stephen Evans said with a laugh. “We’re definitely ready and more prepared this time.” Neither team closely resembles the ones that met on March 30 and April 1, though. St. Al has two starters back — infielder Justin Rushing and infielderpitcher Ryno Martin-Nez — who missed the earlier games because of injury. Martin-Nez threw six strong innings in his first game back on the mound, an 8-1 victory that clinched last

week’s second-round sweep of Nanih Waiya. “I definitely feel since we got everybody back, we’re more confident as a team,” said St. Al pitcher Stephen Evans, who will start Game 1 against Cathedral. Cathedral is also different,

but for tragic reasons. In an April 21 game against St. Stanislaus, Dylan White collided with teammate Daniel Huffines while the two middle infielders were both going after a pop up. White, the team’s top pitcher, fractured his skull and spent several days in the hospital. Huffines, the team’s secondbest hitter, missed a couple of games with a concussion. Remarkably, White could play this weekend. Cathedral coach Craig Beesley said White will be examined by doctors before Game 1 this afternoon. If he’s cleared, White could see some action. In White’s absence, the Green Wave has turned to Aaron White and Tyler Morrison to pick up the pitching slack. They’re a combined 9-1 this season. Aaron White has a 1.85 ERA and 45 strikeouts in 412⁄3 innings, while Morrison has a 2.14 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 312⁄3 innings. Dylan White was also hitting just .250 before the injury, meaning his absence has done little to slow down a lineup with a collective average of .341. Cathedral has also won all four playoff games without him, so Wilkerson wasn’t buying into the idea of one missing piece turning the series the Flashes’ way. “I don’t see how it couldn’t (help). But we’ve been playing without two of our best and grinding, so I’m not playing too much into that. Cathedral has been rolling,” Wilkerson said.

By Ernest Bowker ebowker@vicksburgpost.com Right before Pierson Waring steps the batter’s box, he stretches. Or, at least, does something that looks like a stretch. In an elaborate 30-second routine, the St. Aloysius senior shortstop reaches down to touch his toes; does a couple of quick torso twists with his bat behind him; spits into his hands and rubs dirt on them; maybe pats his helmet; and then finally steps into the box, where he takes a couple of quick practice swings. The whole thing, which looks to be equal parts ritual dance, routine, and martial arts movements, is typically capped off with a line drive to the outfield and a scintillating sprint around the bases. “I have no clue,” Waring laughed when asked about the routine. “It’s just a habit, and I’m kind of superstitious. I do a bunch of weird stuff when I bat. In the dugout, I clean the toes of my shoes, then I spit on my hands and rub my helmet.” Waring’s teammates don’t argue with success. They just laugh it off and appreciate the results. “That’s his happy place,” St. Al coach Clint Wilkerson said. “He goes to there and gets his mind right. Whatever makes him hit .450, man.” Waring’s average this season is a bit lower than the .456 he posted last year — .386, to be exact — but he’s See Waring, Page B3.

St. Al-Cathedral rivalry to reach fever pitch today Cathedral and St. Aloysius are separated by 73 miles, but the gulf between the schools might as well be the distance from here to China. It’s a rivalry that has burned hotter than the bhut jolokia, rated by the 2007 Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s hottest chilli pepper, 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce. This academic year might be the best one of the rivalry. And the stakes couldn’t be higher. During football season, Pierson Waring drilled a 25-yard field goal in a morass of mud and Luke Burnett’s clutch interception in the end zone preserved a 10-7 victory by St. Al at Cathedral. Today, while attention of the fanbases is focused on

the Class 1A South State title baseball series, which starts at 6 p.m. in Natchez, there will be another venue where purple will collide with green: on the golf course. The two golf teams will do battle for the Class 1A state championship just a few miles from Chester Willis Field at the Beau Pré Country Club. St. Al is the three-time

defending state champion and is the 1,000-pound gorilla of Class 1A golf. In last year’s Class 1A state tournament at Bay Pointe in Brandon, the Flashes lapped the field by 99 strokes. Let that phrase sink in slowly. To call that an overmatch is like saying that next year’s Alabama-Georgia State game at Bryant-Denny Stadium is going to be a close-run affair. Not so much. This year’s St. Al team is deeper than James Earl Jones’ voice. Or the Marianas Trench. Or the debt load of Greece. Nearly every one of the golfers on this year’s squad has won medalist honors in one tournament at least. If one of the group, made up of last year’s state tournament

medalist Chris Ingram, Nick Mekus, Elliott Bexley, Harris McKay or Fisher Campbell, struggle, one or two of the others will pick up the slack. As for baseball, the Flashes were outscored 23-5 in their two regular-season matchups with the Green Waves. Ouch. Cathedral hit St. Al at its lowest point of the season, a 2-6 skid that made Trustmark Park seem a lot further distant than 35 miles. But this is a different St. Al team that will take the field in Natchez. Its confidence level, thanks to the return of Justin Rushing and Ryno Martin-Nez, is sky-high after besting Edinburg fireballer Mitchell Wooten in the first round and sweeping Nanih Waiya in the second.

The Flashes aim for a return trip to Trustmark Park and again, the road runs through Cathedral. The Flashes ended the Green Waves’ undefeated run with a 15-6 beatdown in Game 1 of their second-round playoff series and struck the mortal blow with a heartening 7-6 win in eight classic innings in Game 2. So this time, the rivalry won’t be just for bragging rights on both the diamond and on the links. With a pair of titles at stake, expect the rivalry to log its best chapter.

Since 1977, Hinton has served as a teacher, coach, athletic administrator, principal, and private consultant. “We are pleased to name Don Hinton as the next executive director,” MHSAA President Lonnie Tillman said. “He is a motivational person with a passion for education and activities. He clearly recognizes the importance of activities as a dropout prevention tool, and he has demonstrated for many years his commitment to the young people of Mississippi.”

football Shannon says new deal will be big recruiting help CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Randy Shannon routinely would hear the same question on the recruiting trail. Players and parents alike, they couldn’t figure out why Miami was winning more games, yet the coach wasn’t getting rewarded with a new contract. That’s not a problem anymore. Shannon has signed a new fouryear contract to remain as the Hurricanes’ head coach, ending a backand-forth negotiating process that began more than a year ago and included an undisclosed raise over the approximate $1.2 million he made last season. Shannon has gone 21-17 in his three seasons, winning five games in 2007, then seven in 2008 and nine in 2009. The 2010 season was to be Shannon’s last under his current deal, and there was some thought he could wind up taking a chance.

Cushing keeps AP Defensive Rookie award NEW YORK — A positive drug test notwithstanding, Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing is still The Associated Press NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. Five days after he was suspended without pay for four games, a nationwide panel of 50 sports writers and broadcasters who cover the NFL voted again to give Cushing the award. He didn’t receive anywhere near the 39 votes of his previous landslide victory, but the 18 he got in Wednesday’s revote were enough to reclaim the honor. “I was just glad to hear the news, that people stuck by me. Very honored,” Cushing said. “I’m very happy to have the award once again, and I’m just happy with how everything turned out.” Although Cushing said he took a non-steroid substance, the league still considers it a performanceenhancer.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS May 13 1952 — In an Appalachian League game, Ron Necciai of the Bristol Twins strikes out 27 batters while pitching a 7-0 no-hitter against the Welch Miners. 1958 — Stan Musial gets his 3,000th hit with a pinch-double off Chicago’s Moe Drabowsky at Wrigley Field. The Cardinals win 5-3. 2005 — Tiger Woods misses the cut at the Byron Nelson Championship to end his record of 142 consecutive cuts made over the last seven years on the PGA Tour. Needing a par on the 18th hole at Cottonwood Valley, Woods misses a 15-foot putt. He taps in for a bogey and a 2-over 72, leaving him at 1 over for the tournament. 2006 — With a 5-1 victory over Carolina in the Eastern Conference semifinals, New Jersey’s Martin Brodeur becomes the third winningest goalie in league history with 89. Brodeur trails Patrick Roy (151) and Grant Fuhr (92).

Braves blast Brewer bullpen

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James drives past Boston Celtics center Kendrick Perkins in Game 3.

LeBron, Cavaliers face elimination INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) — As a nation of critics dissected his rare poor playoff game, questioning his effort, digging for deeper clues about his future and wondering if he has what it takes to win an NBA championship, LeBron James worked on his jumper. As panic spread through the region, swallowing his nearby hometown of Akron and causing further damage to Cleveland’s badly damaged sports psyche, James exuded calm. There’s nothing he can do about Game 5. It’s history. Game 6 in Boston, however, is a chance for redemption and James believes Cavaliers fans should be confident. Why? “They got me,” he said. But which one? The league’s two-time MVP? Or the guy who made 1-of-11 shots from the outside, stood around passively on offense as the Celtics pulled away to take a 3-2 series lead and then raised eyebrows afterward by not being accountable and saying, “I spoil a lot of people with my play.”

nba playoffs On TV 7 p.m. ESPN Cavaliers at Celtics One day after scoring 15 points in the 120-88 loss — the Cavaliers’ worst in playoff history — and being booed by fans who wonder if they’ll ever see him play in person again, James, who can leave Cleveland as a free agent on July 1, said he and his teammates understand their season, the one that was supposed to end with a downtown parade, is on the brink. “It’s win or go home at this point,” he said. “All these guys understand what’s at stake and we look forward to it.” Backed up against a wall, both literally and figuratively, James spent nearly 12 minutes after practice on Wednesday answering questions from a media throng about the health of his injured elbow.

Waring Continued from Page B1. still putting up some remarkable numbers. His five home runs lead the Flashes this season, he’s third on the team with 31 RBIs and first with 43 runs scored. The sixyear starter also needs five more hits to reach 200 for his high school career. The power and run production numbers are especially impressive, considering Waring is St. Al’s leadoff man. The top spot in the order doesn’t usually lend itself to RBI opportunities, but a strong effort from the bottom of the order the past two seasons has put Waring in a unique position to drive in runs. He has 79 RBIs the past two years, and at least 20 in each of the last five seasons. Waring is also a rare power hitter at the top of the order. He has 28 doubles and nine home runs the last two seasons, both tops on the team. “Most leadoff guys are contact guys and get on base. I hit for more power,” said Waring, a Hinds Community College signee. “I go up there to swing. Most guys take pitches. I probably don’t have as many walks as other guys, but I probably hit for more power.” Waring’s ability to be more than a table-setter has had a profound effect on St. Al’s lineup. Because he’s such a potent force, it compels pitchers to adjust their approach. The bottom of the order sees a better pitch selection because pitchers don’t want runners on when Waring comes up. And once Waring gets on base, they have to pitch differently to the hitters behind him. St. Al’s No. 9 hitter, Brendan

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Atlanta Braves found a familiar way to beat up the Milwaukee Brewers. Brooks Conrad homered, doubled and drove in four runs while subbing for injured Chipper Jones, and the Braves roughed up Milwaukee’s bullpen once again for a 9-2 win Wednesday and a three-game sweep. “You need to have confidence and get a little swagger back,” Braves manager Bobby Cox said. The Braves, a team not known for their potent hitting this season, outscored the Brewers 28-7 in the series. Another late-game outburst by the Braves squandered a solid start by Yovani Gallardo and continued the Brewers’ woes at home. They are 4-11 at Miller Park this season — and after a day off Thursday, the Phillies are coming to town. “I don’t think anybody can explain why we’ve been having a tough time getting wins at home,” Casey McGehee said. “We’ve got to figure out something.” The bullpen is a prime suspect, at least in this series. All three games were close early, only to turn into blowouts. “It’s been a little bit of an epidemic here, throughout the series,” Brewers manager Ken Macha said. “It’s not just one or two guys.” But it hasn’t helped that starters are having trouble going deep into games, wearing Brewers relievers down. Macha said he asked closer Trevor Hoffman on Wednesday morning if the veteran closer needed to pitch an inning after getting little work of late. Hoffman said yes — not for his own benefit, but because the rest of the bullpen is so worn down. It showed again Wednesday. Gallardo left after pitching the top of the sixth, and the Brewers tied the game at 2-all in the bottom half of the inning. The Braves then jumped all over Brewers relievers, scoring a total of seven runs in the final three innings. It looked a lot like the previous two games, when the Braves turned close games into

mlb blowouts. Jason Heyward hit a hard shot off first baseman Prince Fielder’s glove for a go-ahead double in the seventh inning. “But it wasn’t just that we scored, it was that we scored often,” said Matt Diaz, whose pinch-hit double set up Atlanta’s two-run seventh inning. Conrad hit a two-run homer in the eighth and two-run

double off Hoffman in the ninth. Jones, who is trying to shake off a nagging groin injury, appeared as a pinchhitter in the ninth and hit an RBI double. “It’s sure nice to bounce back the way we did this series,” Conrad said. “We got the bats alive and some great pitching.” Derek Lowe (5-3) was untouchable early on, holding the Brewers hitless through

the first four innings before allowing a leadoff single to McGehee in the fifth. Lowe said he threw more changeups Wednesday than he had all year, and he is abandoning his past philosophy of pitching mostly away from hitters. “I needed to try new things and today was the first day,” Lowe said. “It was a lot better.”

Bulldogs snap school-record 11-game skid Beesley, has a .391 average this season. The No. 2 hitter, Blake Haygood, has a .432 average. Waring also does a lot of things you’d expect from an ordinary leadoff hitter. He has 68 career stolen bases, including 12 this season, and has scored 170 runs the past four seasons. Wilkerson said it’s the kind of impact he’s come to expect from his team captain. “When you get a guy that hits five home runs and 15 doubles, you don’t want to get to him. You’ve got to feed the guys at the bottom of the lineup. You’ve got to get them out. Pierson is a game-changer. He doesn’t have to be in the box to affect the game,” Wilkerson said. “That’s why he’s got a ‘C’ on his jersey and nobody else does.”

From staff reports Connor Powers’ RBI-single in the bottom of the seventh inning broke a tie as Mississippi State defeated Northwestern State 8-5 on Wednesday. The Bulldogs snapped a school-record 11-game losing streak. MSU improved to 21-28, while Northwestern State fell to 29-19. “We competed well today,” MSU coach John Cohen said. “We took a step today, a little step, but definitely a step we needed to take. ” The teams carried a one-all pitchers’ duel into the home half of the seventh inning. In that frame, the Bulldogs bats finally caught fire, tallying six runs on four hits and a pair of walks. The Bulldogs finished with 11 hits. Powers, Russ Sneed, Ryan Collins and Sam Frost

college baseball each had multiple hits. Sneed had his second four-RBI game of the season. Meanwhile, the go-ahead run was Powers’ 202nd career RBI — tying him with Travis Chapman for sixth all-time in the M-State record book. Caleb Reed (1-5) worked 22⁄3 innings in relief to earn the win. Reed worked the Bulldogs out of a two-on, no-out situation in the sixth inning, but was touched for all four runs in the eighth inning. Trey Johnson earned his first save.

Facebook fans want White on Oscars Facebook fans brought Betty White to “Saturday Night Live,” and now they’ve got their eyes on the Oscars. A page on the social networking website, called Official Page for Getting Betty White to Host the Academy Awards, has collected more than 56,000 fans. One commenter wrote that “Betty White Betty would be one of the best hosts ever!!!!!” White But the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences says it isn’t ready to let Facebook make casting decisions for film’s biggest night. Spokeswoman Leslie Unger says the academy plans to continue with its protocol of allowing the producers to select the host that will best serve the show they’re trying to put together.

Penn pleads no contest to vandalism Sean Penn pleaded no contest to vandalism on Wednesday, effectively ending a case in which the Oscar-winning actor was videotaped kicking a celebrity photographer. Penn was not present in court and entered the plea through his attorney. He was sentenced to three years of informal probation and ordered to perform 300 hours of community service, said city attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan. Mateljan says those hours can be completed through Penn’s earthquake-relief efforts in Haiti. He was also ordered to undergo 36 hours of anger management counseling and stay 100 Sean Penn yards away from the photographer. Penn was charged in February with misdemeanor battery and vandalism for the October dustup and faced up to 18 months in jail if convicted. “Prolonging this matter in the court system would not have been in Mr. Penn’s best interests and would have distracted from his charitable commitments, specifically his work in Haiti,” Penn’s attorney Richard Hirsch said. “Accordingly he has decided to accept the terms and move on.” If he completes the terms of his sentence, Penn will be allowed to reduce the charge to disturbing the peace. Mateljan said a restitution hearing for the photographer will be July 8. The photographer, Jordan Dawes, has sued Penn in civil court. That case remains active.

’Blair Witch’ town eyes auction of signs A Maryland town that has long disdained its ties to the “Blair Witch Project” is now considering selling some coveted artifacts from the 1999 horror film. They are four road signs reading, “Welcome to the historic village of Burkittsville.” They resemble those seen in the movie by characters researching the fictitious legend of the Blair Witch. Voters in the community of 180 will decide June 7 whether to sell the signs in an Internet auction or save any of them for posterity. Burkittsville had the heavy metal signs made after souvenir hunters stole the original wooden ones. That didn’t stop the thievery so the town recently replaced them with versions that don’t resemble those seen in the movie.

Newhart celebrates 50 years in show biz LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Fifty years!” Bob Newhart marveled. “It’s like where the hell did the time go?” The comedian was ruminating recently as he relaxed between concert dates on a 14-city tour celebrating his golden anniversary in show business. “I’ll tell you how the world has changed,” he said in the living room of his secluded Bel-Air home. “We were all called the sick comics. Time magazine did an article on all of us: Lenny Bruce, myself, Shelley Berman and Mike Nichols and Elaine May. Lenny was knocking over all kinds of sacred topics, and we all were called ‘sick.’ I was making people sick because I made fun of a president — Abe Lincoln. Compared to today, it’s hard to believe.” Newhart’s very first gig was at a night club in Houston. His act went north — but downhill — from there. “I was in Windsor, Canada, and I died every night,” Newhart recalled. “Not a snicker, not a laugh. I almost went back to accounting (his previous endeavor). I told myself, ‘That’s it.’ Then I played Winnipeg, and it was fine. But there isn’t a standup comedian who hasn’t had just one but a bunch of bad performances.” Two weeks after his debut in Houston, he recorded “The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart.” “It then went crazy and went beyond anyone’s expectations, especially mine.” At 81, Bob Newhart has reached the age when many performers call it quits. “I’ve had time off and it drove me nuts,” he claimed. “I was crawling up the wall.

Comedian Bob Newhart “I know some people who say, ‘I wanna quit making people laugh. I’m tired of making people laugh.’ That doesn’t make sense to me. Why would I want to stop doing it? When you do a show and it works and you come off stage and they’ve had a good time and

you’ve had a good time. Why stop doing that?” He explained his modus operandi: “I have an idea and I’ll try it in Seattle and maybe refine it a little more in Calgary and refine it a little more in Vancouver. The art of it is doing it 10 milllion times and

see what happens. That’s a kick. The art of doing it 10 million times but make it seem like the first time. That’s the art of it. “About 6 p.m., I start pacing up and down getting ready for the show. You never take it for granted but when you do it will slap you in the face and make you wake up.” He was asked if he ever lost his place during a performance. “Oh yeah,” he responded. “In Las Vegas one time I was doing two shows a night, seven days a week. You start telling a joke, and it wasn’t getting the reaction that I thought it usually did. I’d do it again and they’re all staring at me and saying ‘Why is he telling this joke again?”’ Newhart seems little changed, though his hair line has retreated. “I got up to 175 pounds, and I was miserable; I’ve never been that heavy in my life.,” he said. “I forced myself to get on the stationary bike and I got it down to 165. I’d like to get it down to 160.” “I don’t have any health problems,” he commented, “but flying is a pain in the ass: lost luggage, canceled flights. But once you are there, it’s easy.” Newhart is forever working new material into his routine. “I’ll try out this idea I have about being Catholic and the guilt that comes along with it,” he said. “I“ll try it out and maybe parts of it will work and parts of it won’t. “It’s like a car, I guess. You take out the engine, you put a new one in. That’s the fun part. You’ll change a word and it doesn’t work. What was it that worked yesterday and it didn’t work today?”

A hit with Oprah, singer tries to win over teens NEW YORK (AP) — Charice has already won over the mom market. The teen wunderkind from the Philippines has been wowing audiences with her big voice and Celine Dion covers on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and other shows for the last two years. This week, she appeared on Winfrey’s show for the fourth time. But as she releases her selftitled debut album this week, Charice finds herself with a serious challenge as she tries to translate her success with an adult audience to her peers. “I’ve been singing big songs, and this is actually the first time they are going to hear me sing Justin Bieber-type of songs, Miley Cyrus-type of songs,” the 18-year-old said recently in her heavily accented English. “I’m just excited for all the teenagers to hear my album.” Had Charice come along around the era of Dion or Whitney Houston, two of her idols, it would have been easier to make that move. Back then, big-ballad singers with towering voices dominated pop radio. These days, it’s the grooves behind the big voice that matter. David Foster, the Grammywinning mentor behind Charice, probably knows that better than anyone. A legendary producer who has made hits for Houston, Dion, Barbra Streisand, Toni Braxton and dozens of other top names, Foster understands his sound isn’t what makes hits on pop radio anymore (though he still

makes hits — he’s the producer behind multiplatinum stars Josh Groban and Michael Buble). “I knew if Charice I produced the album, it would be adult-oriented. It would skew older. It would be maybe a quick, easy sale, but ultimately, it’s very, very hard to skew younger after you start older, so we made a conscious decision to skew young first,” he said. “I don’t want to say that we crumbled under the pressure of having to go youthful, but I think we hit it square on.” Though Foster and his sister Jaymes are the album’s executive producers, they left most of the music-making to younger writers and producers like Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, whose hits include Beyonce’s

“Halo” and Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love.” The album’s first single is “Pyramid,” featuring singer Iyaz. “I just thought like, teenagers are falling in love ... they love this very catchy and very romantic words from all these young artists,” Charice said. “That’s why I thought that this album ... they are gonna love it, all the lyrics, all the melody and all the music.” So far, “Pyramid” is No. 2 on the dance charts, but it hasn’t yet translated to pop radio. Foster is aware of the challenge it takes to make a hit, but he thinks Charice has a lot to add to the scene. There’s no denying Charice has that. During a recent interview, the diminu-

tive singer belted out “Pyramid” on request, performed a stirring rendition of Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” for an audience of four, then continued to sing — even on her way out the door. Singing has consumed Charice — born Charmaine Clarice Relucio Pempengco — since she was a child growing up in the Philippines. Raised with her brother by a single mother, she sang in local contests and appeared on TV talent shows in the Philippines and in South Korea. Fans posted clips of her on YouTube, and she became a sensation. Soon, she was invited to sing on “Ellen,” then on “Oprah Winfrey,” and linked up with Foster.

Man’s shame prompts thoughts of suicide Dear Abby: I have been married 19 years to a beautiful, accomplished woman. We have two wonderful children. I fooled around throughout my marriage because I could. I justified it by telling myself the women knew what they were doing, and I never made any false promises about leaving my wife. She suspected a couple of times, but always gave me the benefit of the doubt. My last affair ended publicly with every gory detail exposed. My family, work, reputation — everything that mattered to me — have been destroyed. I can’t talk about any of it to a therapist because I am so ashamed. Friends, family and co-workers now shun me. I have hit rock bottom. If you have a hopeful solution, please share it. Otherwise, please print this as a warning to other men like me that when they hit bottom — as will surely happen — there’s nowhere to turn. I want to end my life. — Shattered in Louisiana Dear Shattered: I under-

stand this experience has been painful for all concerned, but stop focusing only about yourself and your pain. Suicide may seem like a solution to your problems, but your children need you alive and functional — and their needs must take precedence. Find a therapist — someone you can relate to, and feel safe enough with to discuss everything that has happened from the beginning. There is life after divorce. And, as many celebrities can attest, there is also life after public embarrassment and career setbacks. So straighten your backbone and keep marching forward. While it may not seem like it right now, there are better days ahead. Dear Abby: My mother and

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: Conditions that pertain to your finances and material security may begin to show improvement in the year ahead. Once you get on a roll, you could start to accumulate a surplus and be able to acquire some big-ticket items. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Although you might be a bit of a daydreamer today, something you come up with could actually be a winner. If it seems good to you, turn your fanciful idea into concrete fact. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Usually it doesn’t matter, but today recognition for doing something good could be extremely important to you. All you have to do is put forth the extra effort that an also-ran wouldn’t make. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Others might fall prey to not being able to identify a falsehood when they hear one, but you are not likely to be so easily deceived. Trust both your common sense and your intuition when weighing evidence. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Progress can be made today concerning an ambitious endeavor you’ve been pursuing, but you might have to get a bit creative to move forward. Just wait until completion before claiming any bragging rights. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Using a bit of smarts and lots of diplomacy can serve you better than being bossy and demanding. The secret to getting others to help you without generating any resentment is to make them feel important. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t discard any strong feelings or hunches you get today, especially regarding your work. Your intuitive perceptions could be the best tool you’ll find for accomplishing a difficult job. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — One of your greatest assets is your ability to recognize the talents of others. When organizing an event, assign people to the jobs they do best, and each will walk away feeling successful. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Although it might take you a bit longer than others to do a certain job today, the big difference will be in the fact that what you do is likely to be done to perfection. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — What you say isn’t likely to be ignored today, and others will know you mean business. Even when your demands are couched in friendly phrases, the point gets across. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If large returns are necessary for you to be successful today, you might have to work a bit harder than usual. However, once you prime the pump, personal gains should freely flow. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Members of the opposite gender usually find you an extremely charismatic person at first. Today, however, your allure could be far stronger than usual. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Although it might seem like a little thing for another to do, it could be quite meaningful to you, the recipient. Being appreciated for a past good deed will mean a lot.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: Is it better to smoke cigarettes or marijuana? My parents smoke cigarettes, and I am a pothead because I enjoy getting high. — Nameless, Anaheim, Calif. Nameless: “Better” is a word that shouldn’t be used when comparing tobacco and marijuana. Both are harmful to the body. It’s just that tobacco is a legal drug, while marijuana is illegal. Getting high means control of your body is compromised, which can lead to major problems, especially if driving a vehicle. You can’t control what your parents do, but you are 100 percent responsible for your actions. Be smart. Get high on life or love or happiness or helping others. Stop smoking marijuana. Give the money you waste smoking pot to a needy family or a worthy charity. That’s when you will achieve a true high. Dr. Wallace: I am a junior in high school and plan to attend a nursing school at a local community college after I graduate. However, getting into the school is very difficult, as many people apply and only a few are accepted. A friend told me that male applicants with a decent grade on the entrance exam are almost guaranteed acceptance because they are in the minority. Is there any truth to this? — Jacob, Phoenix. Jacob: The nursing profession welcomes males who want to be nurses. I contacted a community college in Iowa that offers nursing classes and was informed that they welcome male applicants, but there is no quota on male or female students. I suggest that you visit the community college you plan to attend and inquire about the admission requirements for their nursing program. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

I rarely get along — mainly because she thinks she’s fabulous and I don’t. I’m in my 30s, married with a child and have a career. I am tired of riding an emotional roller coaster with Mother. She is planning her next visit and I don’t want her to come. Her visits end up lasting a week or more, and her conversation consists of complaining, making snide comments about my house and how I am raising my child (under the guise of being “helpful”), and then whining because I don’t have the time or desire to entertain or placate her. Can you tell me how to tell her that visits to my house are no longer welcomed? — Done with the Drama Dear Done: When your mother raises the subject of her visit, tell her that she would be more comfortable staying at a hotel when she comes and so would you. That way you can control the amount of time you spend together. Offer to split the cost with her, then pray she agrees.

Dear Abby: Here’s a new one for you. A group of friends and I are frequent customers on some of the home shopping channels. When we buy jewelry it arrives in a gift case or box. We hate to throw them away. Any ideas on how we can donate or recycle those gift boxes? — Diana in Lakewood, Calif. Dear Diana: Depending upon how you store your jewelry, you could keep the items in their presentation boxes in a drawer with the tops open, so the drawer becomes a large jewelry box and they don’t become scratched. Or, save the boxes and reuse them when giving small gifts at Christmas or on birthdays. If you know of any people or groups who make jewelry or other crafts, offer the boxes to them.

High potassium levels puzzling to reader Dear Dr. Gott: Please explain to me what causes high potassium levels. I have been diagnosed with high potassium, but don’t know exactly how high it is or the cause. When I watched my diet, the levels came down. Dear Reader: The technical name for high potassium is hyperkalemia. Normal readings are between 3.6 and 4.8 milliequivalents per liter (mEq/L) determined by simple lab testing. The most common causes are related to the kidneys and include either acute kidney failure or chronic kidney failure. Less common causes are type I diabetes, the excessive use of alcohol, Addison’s disease, ACE inhibitors, redblood-cell destruction, NSAIDs and an excessive use of supplements containing potassium. Let’s hit on these briefly. Kidney failure is the inability of the kidneys to function properly. Acute failure is marked by low amounts of urine with a rapid buildup of nitrogen waste in the blood. Causes include acute infection, a blocked urinary tract, injury, burns and other causes. Chronic failure can be the result of many diseases. Type I (insulin-dependent) diabetes is caused either by failure of the pancreas to release adequate insulin into the body or by a defect in the portions of the cells that accept the insulin. Excessive alcohol consumption or drug use can cause a breakdown of muscle fibers, resulting in the release of potassium into the bloodstream. Addison’s disease is caused by partial or complete failure of the adrenal gland, which is responsible for many bodily functions. Causes include infection, bleeding into the gland and tumor. Ace inhibitors are drugs prescribed for several purposes, one of which is to lower blood pressure readings. Unfortunately, some individuals with renal-artery narrowing can experience a worsening of kidney function. Red-blood-cell destruction can occur because of a number of conditions and diseases. This autoimmune disorder can either be inherited or acquired. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are available over-the-counter for control of headaches, mild to moderate pain from exercise such as gardening or sports injuries, fever, menstrual cramps and more. Examples include aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen. If you are consuming NSAIDs, speak with your physician regarding other options. Potassium deficiency is rare with a balanced diet, but excesses are certainly a possi-

bility if supplements are taken. Average intake for individuals 10 and over is 2,000 mg. or 51 Meq per day. If you don’t consume additional potassium, speak with your physician to rule out other possible causes.
