Construction and financing for a new jail is looking more unlikely for the upcoming budget year due to the economy, while the pool of private attorneys who represent poor people accused of crimes in Warren County might shrink slightly and be paid less, according to members of a local justice system committee. Colorado-based Voorhis/ Robertson Justice Services recommended a modernized jail built on 30 to 50 acres with enough space to expand to 650 inmates. The current local capacity is 128. The likely price tag would be about $30 million plus millions more in annual operational costs. Concerns about less tax collections through 201011 and cuts already in the works to counteract the rest of this year’s spending have all but pushed site selection and financing back a year. “As Richard George always says, ‘The economy’s driving this train.’ The economy’s about trainwrecked, I think,” District 1 Supervisor David McDonald said, adding he was also speaking for the rest of the county board. “Until we find out exactly what this economy’s going to do, what the state’s going to do, I don’t see us doing anything.... Voorhis would like us to have a site picked by August. Unless someone’s wiling to donate it to us, we don’t have the money to buy 20 to 30 acres to put a jail on right now.” State law allows counties to purchase or be given land to build government buildings including jails, but an Attorney General’s opinion in 2009 interpreted it to mean it had to be built inside municipal limits — throwing the use of land at Ceres industrial park into doubt.

Dr. Gerald Keller, consultant for Omaha-based McPherson and Jacobson, met with district trustees Wednesday to report what the search firm was told May 20 in a day of meetings with stakeholder groups. One consensus was that the new superintendent should visit schools and classrooms, attend athletic events and other activities and promote a positive image of the district. Some of the problems the new leader will face were also detailed. “None of that is new to any of us,” said trustee Jerry Boland after Keller’s presentation. “I think all of us have heard these things before.” Separate meetings were held with administrators, certified staff, noncertified staff, student council members from both Vicksburg and Warren Central high schools, the Vicksburg-Warren County Chamber of Commerce and a group of parents and community members, conducted by Keller and another of the firm’s consultants, Loe Dunn. “All the groups said the people of this area were really the strength of this community,” Keller said. “They cited good students, good administrators and good teachers” and a well-educated and diverse population.

Municipal inmates are sent by the City of Vicksburg mainly to Issaquena County, with costs there running about $500,000 in recent years. State prisoners, who have stood trial and thus are eligible for work details and such, cannot be housed locally due to the county’s loss of certification to do so due to the current jail’s conditions. “I was kind of under the impression we were at a crisis stage,” said County Prosecutor Ricky Johnson,

Gulf oil spill now biggest in U.S. history Drilling official resigns post under pressure

Joblessness falls again; 3rd in a row By Danny Barrett Jr.

By The Associated Press COVINGTON, La. — The Gulf oil spill has surpassed the Exxon Valdez as the worst in U.S. history, according to estimates released today, but the Coast Guard and BP said an untested procedure to stop it seemed to be working.

Joblessness in Warren County ticked downward in April — the third straight drop in local unemployment since the start of the year. Local unemployment was 11.1 percent for the month, down from an adjusted 11.7 percent in March, according to figures released Wednesday by the Mississippi Department of Employment Security. Both months reflect slight dips from February and January, when rates were 12.4 percent and 12.5 percent, respectively. Statewide, joblessness was down half a percent during April, to 10.7 percent from 11.2 percent in March. National unemployment stood at 9.5 percent, down from a revised 10.2 percent in March.

Two Vicksburg men were in the Warren County Jail today charged in a statutory rape reported in April. At 3 p.m. Wednesday, Warren County deputies arrested Anthony L. Terry, 18, at his 110 Eva St. home and charged him in the rape of a girl younger than 14, Sheriff Martin Pace said. Terry also was charged with resisting arrest, Pace said, because he fought with Deputy Robert Taylor, who suffered a broken hand. Taylor was treated and released from River Region Medical Center, hospital spokesman Allen Karel said. At 5:15 p.m., Jay’zarr L. Pugh, 17, 1416 Greenhill Road, surrendered to deputies on the rape charge, Pace said. Both arrests followed DNA results from the Mississippi Crime Lab, the sheriff said. Both men were being held without bond pending an initial appearance in court.

A traffic stop at East Main Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive Wednesday led to a Vicksburg man being charged with possession of cocaine. Koury Evans, 25, 7823 Halls Ferry Road, was a passenger when Vicksburg patrolmen stopped the vehicle for speeding, police Lt. Bobby Stewart said. During the stop, police arrested Evans on misdemeanor charges after they checked his driver’s license number, Stewart said. During the traffic stop, Evans attempted to run, but was caught by police officers. A search of Evans yielded about $150 in cocaine, Stewart said. Evans was in the Warren County Jail this morning without bond. He also was being held for the Mississippi Department of Corrections.

Lawsuit: U.S. House districts violate 1-person, 1-vote By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — A federal lawsuit that seeks to double or even quadruple the size of the U.S. House argues that citizens in Mississippi and four other states don’t have enough representatives while Wyoming, Rhode Island and a few others get too many. Three federal judges in Oxford, Miss., will hear arguments Friday in the lawsuit by a homeschooling activist and conservative attorney that challenges the way the 435 House seats are divided among the 50 states. The suit, considered a longshot by some experts, was filed against U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, whose department oversees the Census; Census Bureau director Robert Groves and others. It claims the principle of oneperson, one-vote is violated because congressional districts vary widely in population from state to state. It cites

The number of House seats has increased since 1787, when the Constitution set the original number at 65. For most of the past century, there have been 435 seats divided among the 50 states. 2000 Census figures showing 905,316 people in Montana’s single House district and 495,304 people in Wyoming’s only district. “It takes 183 voters in Montana to equal 100 voters in Wyoming,” the suit says. The Justice Department says it’s the duty of Congress, not the courts, to decide how many seats are in the House. A similar suit was tossed out in federal court in New York in 1983, and experts think this one’s chances are not good either. “I don’t think it’s going anywhere. I’m surprised that they’re hearing it,” James Thurber, founder and director of the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies at American University in Washington, said Wednesday. Plaintiffs say adding House

seats would make it easier to create districts roughly balanced by the number of residents. The lawsuit suggests expanding the House to either 1,761 seats or 932 — an expensive, time-consuming and politically contentious proposal. Attorney Michael Farris filed the suit on behalf of people in states with high-population congressional districts and said he’d like to see Congress expanded soon after the 2010 Census is completed. He said he recruited friends and friends of friends to be plaintiffs, and the lawsuit is not an academic exercise. “We’re very serious and we think that we’ve got a good chance,” Farris said this week. Farris is a Washington, D.C., lawyer active in the home-

school movement and chairman and chancellor of Patrick Henry College, a Christian college founded 10 years ago in Purcellville, Va. He said many of the plaintiffs are former homeschooled students, now in college, who live in states he believes are underrepresented in Congress. Farris said he filed the suit in Mississippi because it is one of the underrepresented states. The lead plaintiff is John Tyler Clemons, who was a University of Mississippi student when the suit was filed last fall. The Census Bureau counts the U.S. population every 10 years, and congressional districts are readjusted. Some states gain or lose seats, depending on how population has shifted. The number of House seats has increased since 1787, when the Constitution set the original number at 65. For most of the past century, there have been 435 seats divided among the 50 states. Justice Department attor-

neys wrote in court papers that the Constitution requires each state to have at least one representative, and Congress has the power to determine how many seats are in the House. Assistant Attorney General Tony West and others representing the government wrote that a similar challenge was dismissed in 1983, and that this lawsuit seeks “to restructure an entire branch of the federal government at its most fundamental level. Courts lack the power to do so.” Matt Steffey, a constitutional law professor at Mississippi College School of Law in Jackson, said the lawsuit is a long shot and “all the stars would have to align” for the plaintiffs to persuade judges to expand the House. “A federal judge, even a panel of federal judges, is going to be very reluctant to get involved in what would be reapportionment with nationwide implications,” Steffey said.

Nunnelee, Palazzo ahead in primary campaign cash By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — State lawmakers running for different congressional seats in Mississippi have collected more campaign cash than their opponents in next Tuesday’s Republican primaries. But in both cases, the state office-holders have less money than the Democratic U.S. House members they eventually hope to Henry defeat. Ross State Sen. Alan Nunnelee of Tupelo faces two other candidates in north Mississippi’s 1st District Republican primary, and state Rep. Steve Palazzo of Biloxi faces one in the south’s 4th District. The latest finance reports show Nunnelee has collected $642,968. That compares to $127,251 for former Eupora Mayor Henry Ross and $87,093 for former Fox News analyst Angela McGlowan of Oxford.

In the Republican primary in south Mississippi’s 4th District, Palazzo collected $152,939 and businessman Joe Tegerdine of Petal collected $58,174. The winner faces Democratic incumbent Gene Taylor and two others in November. Taylor, who has represented south Mississippi in Congress since 1989, does not have a primary. He reported $298,799 in campaign collections.

In the Delta’s 2nd District, campaign finance reports had not appeared on the FEC site by Wednesday for the three Republicans in Tuesday’s primary — George Bailey of Clinton, teacher Richard Cook of Byram and former Chicago police officer Bill Marcy of Meridian. Democratic incumbent Bennie Thompson, who’s held the seat since 1993 and is chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, does not have a primary. He reported nearly $1.4 million in campaign cash.

JACKSON (AP) — State regulators have loosened some of their earlier restrictions on Mississippi Power Co.’s proposed coal-fired electrical generating plant in Kemper County, including a decision that would let the company collect construction costs from customers. The Public Service Commission voted 2-1 Wednesday on the new conditions for the plant application. Last month, the commission approved the application but with a lengthy set of conditions that Mississippi Power said would have made it impossible to finance or build the plant.

GREENWOOD (AP) — A state lawmaker and a Leflore County supervisor are challenging a consent decree reached in the Mississippi Republican Party’s lawsuit over voting activity in the county during the 2008 November election. A consent decree signed by Circuit Judge Jannie M. Lewis in April requires the county to comply with state election laws related to voter assistance, unauthorized loitering at precincts, poll watcher rights and ballot security. In a motion filed Tuesday in Leflore County Circuit Court, Sen. David Jordan of Greenwood and Supervisor Robert Moore allege “several major fallacies� in the decree, according to the Greenwood Commonwealth. The Democrats said the decree changes state election laws by giving other Leflore County law enforcement the duties of the election bailiff and changing the practice of voter assistance.

Once again, it appears monitors too lax The epic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has produced an epic number of sideshows. One of them has been the blame game. So far, we’ve only heard President Barack Obama get it right. He said his administration, Congress and oil giant BP and its operatives all contributed to conditions leading to the disaster. He said much the same thing after the most recent mine disaster. There has been a serious lack of accountability and once again we see that professionals paid to regulate and monitor industries are far too cozy with industry insiders. BP, which owns a majority interest in the blown well, has downplayed the seriousness of the disaster every step of the way. And every step the company has taken to limit or shut off the flow has failed. Granted, it’s a tough job. But this is the oil company’s business, and it needs to answer

for the rig’s failure and for its failure to seal the rupture and to provide adequate estimates and answers. Obama said his administration also needs to provide answers on why it has been lax in overseeing offshore drilling activities, as Interior Secretary Ken Salazar admitted to Congress. Salazar said his department’s Minerals Management Service needs to be cleaned up. Perhaps splitting the agency into two as Obama has proposed is part of the answer. Salazar also promised an overhaul of federal regulations. Other questions need answers, too. Why didn’t the government require oil rigs to have a fail-safe system to prevent such massive blowouts? As we learned from the space program and other undertakings, even when copious safety measures are planned, followed and enforced, bad things can happen.

Tragedies don’t always mean someone has done something stupid. It should, however, be very much on the public’s mind that far too often and in far too many contexts — consider the Immigration and Naturalization Service or the Securities and Exchange Commission — federal executive agencies are not getting done the job the public is paying them to do. Those responsible for such calamities need to be held accountable, but as the president said, that includes a lot of entities. And while there are a number of causes for this disaster, the root is the absence of a focused national energy policy. Every one of those failures needs to be addressed by industry and government.

Obama, McConnell need a weekend at Camp David It’s understandable why President Barack Obama wouldn’t want to play golf with Rush Limbaugh, but he needs to start talking to Republican leaders Mitch McConnell and John Boehner. Elected on a promise to end toxic partisanship, Obama has not had any one-on-one contact with Republican congressional leaders during his presidency and has failed to develop personal relationships with them. As Roll Call’s Emily Pierce reported earlier this month, “The last time Obama and McConnell spoke privately, one-on-one, was prior to Obama’s January 2009 inauguration.” Obama did call the Senate Minority Leader briefly to advise him he was nominating Solicitor General Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court — “something we already knew,” the Kentucky Republican’s spokesman said. It’s not clear that personal contact would have resulted in any Republican support for his policies — there’s been precious little, of course — but it might have, assuming conversations led to compromise. Arguably, Obama hasn’t needed bipartisanship to get his programs through Congress. Democrats had a 70-seat margin in the House and, until recently, 60 votes in the Senate.



Elected on a promise to end toxic partisanship, Obama has not had any one-on-one contact with Republican congressional leaders during his presidency.

But every indication is that Republicans will be stronger in the 112th Congress that takes office in January, so Obama will either be forced to deal with the GOP leadership if he wants to get anything done in the next two years, or be thwarted. And as primary elections so far indicate, the GOP center of gravity will be further right than it is now, and the Democrats’ will be further left — with stalemate in the offing unless Obama can break it. In a Jan. 23, 2009, speech to the National Press Club, McConnell characterized Obama’s “promise of postpartisanship” as opening “the possibility of a new era of cooperation.” McConnell blamed both parties for lack of comity, lamented that “vulgar insults hurled from overcaffeinated activists can pass for legitimate political discourse” and offered to

help Obama reform Social Security, lower the national debt and increase energy independence. Did McConnell mean it? Obama should have tested him out — face to face — but never did. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., told me that had Obama and McConnell had a personal relationship, they might have worked out a way to get 60 votes to establish a bipartisan debt commission and even compromise on health care. “It would have been really hard, but (Obama) would have had to sit down with Mitch McConnell at the beginning of the process and said, ‘OK, Mitch, what can we do here?’” Instead, Alexander said, Democrats opted for the “shooting-gallery approach” to GOP senators, “trying to pick off one here and one there. ... To negotiate with Republicans,

you’ve got to start with the leader. “My conclusion,” Alexander said, “is that (Obama) either doesn’t know how to be bipartisan or he doesn’t want to — or some of both. He spent so little time as a senator, maybe he does not understand this place. “And then, he had 60 votes and his left wing was saying, ‘We won the election. We’ll write the laws.’ And he let them. But that won’t work next year.” That’s for sure. A White House aide said Democrats would be “lucky” to limit their House losses to 30. And last Tuesday, McConnell was humiliated in his home state for being “too Washington.” His choice for the Senate (also Dick Cheney’s and right-wing former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum’s) was trounced by Tea Party favorite Rand Paul. Republicans could have five, six or eight more Senate votes in the next Congress — but, as developments in Kentucky, Florida and Utah suggest — they may be more loyal to superpartisan Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., than to McConnell. In Utah, Republicans rejected Sen. Bob Bennett because he cooperated with a Democrat, Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, on model health care legislation and because he voted for President George W. Bush’s rescue package that saved the U.S. economy from

catastrophe. One sad possibility is that, had Obama and McConnell developed a strong relationship — say, like Lyndon Johnson’s with Senate GOP leader Everett Dirksen (Ill.) or Ronald Reagan with Speaker Tip O’Neill, D-Mass. — McConnell might be even weaker politically than he is now. Or, as Alexander suggests, they might have been able to produce bipartisan results that would have countered the discontent raging in the country. But what now? The best suggestion I’ve heard — from Illinois Rep. Mark Kirk, the Republican Senate nominee — is that Obama invite McConnell and Boehner to Camp David for a weekend. Given the level of paranoia rampant among the tea party set, maybe the confab had best be secret. But, if they want to get anything done, they’d better talk. Otherwise, they will spend the next two years — maybe four, maybe six — in nonstop combat, and the nation will fall deeper into debt and oil dependency, its standard of living and world standing jeopardized. •

smart money Q: I am writing you to find out how a person can purchase gold and silver. I have several investments in CDs, money market accounts, the stock market and a 401(k). I have asked my banker and stockbroker but could not bruce get an answer from them. Can you please give me your opinion on investing in gold and silver? — D.D., Chicago A: The best way is to invest in coins. I would restrict that to gold coins because silver has such a relatively modest value that you would have to have huge quantities to represent any substantial amount of money. The gold coins that are available on the market include the Canadian gold coin, U.S. gold coin, the



South African coin and others. As long as they are authentic, they can represent your investment. I don’t like to use the word “investment.” Metals are more of a speculation than an investment. You are betting that the price will go up, but it pays no interest or dividends. It requires storage in a secure area, which may be costly. For most people, it should be restricted to a modest portion of their portfolio, to a maximum of 10 percent. You should also consider purchasing the coins in a jurisdiction where they will not be taxed by the state. For example, if you purchase them in the state that you live in, the state may insist that you pay whatever sales tax is applicable, which will put you in the hole the moment the transaction takes place. While the state’s position is that if you buy out of state, you still owe the money, it is one that is seldom enforced. •

WASHINGTON — Congress is headed toward landmark votes on whether to allow gays to serve openly in the military. The House was expected to vote as early as today on a proposal by Rep. Patrick Murphy, a Pennsylvania Democrat who served in the Iraq war, that would repeal the 1993 law known as “don’t ask, don’t tell.” The legislation — a compromise struck with the White House and agreed to by the Defense Department — would give the military as much time as it wants before lifting the ban. Under the bill, the president, defense secretary and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff must first certify that the new policy won’t hurt the military’s ability to fight. “We need to get this done, and we need to get it done now,” said Murphy. Also as early as today, the Senate Armed Services Committee was expected to take up an identical measure, proposed by Sens. Carl Levin, D-Mich., and Joe Lieberman, I-Conn. As in the House, the Senate provision would be tucked into a broader bill, authorizing hundreds of billions of dollars for the troops, that is expected to win broad support. Supporters said this week the Senate panel had enough votes to pass the bill after key holdouts, including Sen. Ben Nelson, a Nebraska Democrat, announced they would swing behind it.

Medicare pay issue sets doctors on edge WASHINGTON — For the third time this year, Congress is scrambling to stave off a hefty pay cut to doctors treating Medicare patients. The 21.3 percent cut will take effect June 1 unless Congress intervenes. Recurring uncertainty over Medicare fees is making doctors take a hard look at their participation in the govern-


ment program. If the problem is allowed to fester, it could undermine key goals of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, which envisions using Medicare to test ideas for improving the quality of care for all Americans. Doubts about Medicare’s stability can also create political problems for Democrats in the fall elections, since polls show seniors are worried about the impact of the remake on their own care.

Dems scale back bill for jobless aid votes WASHINGTON — Democrats are struggling to extend jobless benefits before they go on vacation next week. Some lawmakers are concerned they’ll be hammered over deficit spending even though the money is for the unemployed. House leaders hope to vote today on a bill that would extend the benefits through November, but they are running into opposition from Republicans and some Democrats concerned about the cost of the overall bill. Democratic leaders have cut the cost of the legislation by more than $50 billion — to about $140 billion — in an attempt to pick up votes. The bill would add about $84 billion to the budget deficit. The benefits are among the unfinished business lawmakers hope to complete before their Memorial Day recess.

The military pushed ahead with the show of force despite warnings from the North that the exercise would bring the peninsula to the brink of war. North Korean reaction was swift. It declared it would scrap an accord with the South designed to prevent armed clashes at their maritime border, and warned of “immediate physical strikes” if any South Korean ships enter its waters. A multinational team of investigators announced May 20 that a North Korean torpedo brought down the Cheonan, killing 46 sailors. Seoul announced a series of punitive measures, including slashing trade and resuming anti-Pyongyang propaganda over radio and loudspeakers aimed at the North. North Korea has denied attacking the Cheonan on March 26 and said it would

abandon a 2004 accord that covered disputed western waters where the Koreas have fought three bloody sea battles since 1999 and near where the Cheonan sank. Inter-Korean political and economic ties have been steadily deteriorating since the February 2008 inauguration of South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, who vowed a tougher line on the North and its nuclear program. The sinking of the Cheonan has returned military tensions — and the prospect of armed conflict — to the fore. Off the west coast, 10 warships, including a 3,500-ton destroyer, fired artillery and other guns and dropped antisubmarine bombs during a one-day exercise to boost readiness, the navy said.

S. Korea has navy drill; North scraps accord SEOUL, South Korea — South Korean warships fired guns and dropped anti-submarine bombs in a largescale military exercise today, a week after Seoul accused North Korea of shooting a torpedo that sank a navy frigate in March.

Continued from Page A1. State tests were an issue for all groups, with students reporting that they increase the dropout rate. Teachers said benchmark tests, given weekly as preparation for the high-stakes, end-of-year tests, prevent expanding the curriculum. “This was just what was passed on to us,” Keller emphasized. “We are not here to critique or referee.” Superintendent Dr. James Price, 58, the district’s fifth since the 1987 consolidation of city and county schools,

announced in March that he would retire June 30. McPherson and Jacobson is concluding the second of its five-phased process to assist trustees in hiring Price’s replacement. The firm was hired after a split vote by the board April 30. The fee, $16,500, includes a provision to repeat the search at no additional cost if a candidate is hired and does not serve out his or her initial contract. The company is advertising the position nationally and will accept applications until

June 11. Its consultants will conduct background, reference and credential checks and assist the board in the interview process. At a work session May 13, trustees set a salary range of $110,000 to $140,000 for the new head of the district which encompasses 15 schools educating about 9,000 students on an annual budget of about $80 million. Board members have said they would like to place a new superintendent by the first weeks of the upcom-

ing fiscal year, which begins July 1. A slate of candidates will be reviewed June 29 to come up with finalists for the position. Interviews will be scheduled between July 19 and 22, Dunn said Wednesday, and the new superintendent named July 23. The first day of school is Aug. 5. Should acceptable candidates not be identified by June 29, trustees will look at appointing an interim superintendent and extending the search process into the fall.

versial lease sales off the coast of Alaska and cancel entirely plans for drilling lease sales in the Western Gulf and off the coast of Virginia, according to a White House aide. A team of scientists trying to figure out how much oil has been flowing since the offshore rig Deepwater Horizon exploded April 20 and sank two days later found the rate was at least twice and possibly up to five times as high as previously thought. Even using the most conservative estimate, that

means the leak has grown to nearly 19 million gallons, surpassing the size of the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster, which at about 11 million gallons had been the nation’s worst spill. Under the highest estimate, nearly 39 million gallons may have spilled. U.S. Geological Survey Director Marcia McNutt said two different teams of scientists calculated that the well has been spewing between 504,000 and more than 1 million gallons a day. BP and the Coast Guard

estimated soon after the explosion that about 210,000 gallons a day was leaking, but scientists who watched underwater video had been saying for weeks it was probably more. Last week, BP inserted a mile-long tube to siphon some of the oil into a tanker. The tube sucked up 924,000 gallons of oil, but engineers had to dismantle so they could start the risky procedure known as a top kill to try to cut off the flow altogether by shooting heavy

drilling fluid into the well. If that works, BP will then inject cement into the well to seal it. The top kill has been used above ground but has never before been tried 5,000 feet beneath the sea. BP pegged its chance of success at 60 to 70 percent. Lt. Commander Tony Russell, an aide to Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, said this morning that the flow of mud was stopping some oil and gas but had a ways to go before it proved successful. “As you inject your mud

into it, it is going to stop some hydrocarbons,” he said. “That doesn’t mean it’s successful.” BP spokesman Tom Mueller also discounted news reports that the top kill had worked. “We appreciate the optimism, but the top kill operation is continuing through the day today — that hasn’t changed,” he said this morning. “We don’t anticipate being able to say anything definitive on that until later today.”

Tony Lamar Collins Jr.

Susan Henderson “Susie” Payne of Vicksburg died peacefully in the comfort of her home and with her family Thursday, May 20, 2010, after a long battle with breast cancer. Susie was born May 27, 1953, in Dallas to Donald and Ruth Henderson where she lived for 22 years. She graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a bachelor of arts in art education in 1975. Susie married Barry Payne of Dallas on Dec. 27, 1975. They moved to upstate New York where they lived for four years in Syracuse and slightly more than a year in Williamsville, near Buffalo. The family has resided in Vicksburg since 1981. Nurturing her two sons was her greatest joy. Susie was a dedicated volunteer at their schools, as well as in the community. She was a long-term hospice volunteer, in remembrance of her brother, Robert. A prominent and sustained feature of her life was her work as an artist and craftsperson. She taught

art at Beechwood Elementary in Vicksburg from 2000-2009, a position she cherished and considered essential. Susie made and nourished close friendships with many people everywhere she lived and at all stages of her life. Her love of life and family, friends, colleagues and students and her compassion for all people was extraordinary. All who knew her can take comfort in knowing that she received love in abundance, reflecting the love she gave. Susie is survived by her husband of 34 years, Barry, and sons, Scott of Washington, D.C., and Michael of Vicksburg. Additionally, she is survived by her father, Donald Henderson of Hughes Springs, Texas; her sisters, Carol Sinkule of Hughes Springs, Valerie Baker of Dallas and Anita Barham of Heath, Texas; her brothers, Donald Henderson of Sunnyvale, Texas, Patrick Henderson of Virginia Beach, Va., Michael Henderson of Longview, Texas, and Christopher Henderson of Dallas; and a half-sister, Rosemary L’Espirit of Thornton, Colo. Susie was preceded in death by her mother, Ruth Warren Henderson; and a brother, Robert Henderson. A memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Hawkins United Methodist Church, 3736 Halls Ferry Road, conducted by the Rev. Jack Harris-Bonham of Hamilton, Mont. A casual reception with food and drink will be held from 12:30-4 p.m. Saturday at Bazsinsky House, 1022 Monroe St. Friends are welcome at either the memorial service or the reception, or both.

dents and teachers was cited, as well as a lack of enforcement of such rules as cell phone use and uneven, inconsistent student discipline, some of which was said to create teacher burnout and foster early retirements. Loss of faculty through attrition is an issue the new superintendent will face, administrators said — the comment reflecting the district’s loss of 88 certified and non-certified positions since 2008, largely due to cuts in state funding.

Judicial Continued from Page A1. sales pitch with an inescapable public cost. “It’s even more incumbent on us to educate the public that it’ll take a tax increase to build a jail,” Lauderdale said. Reducing the number of indigent defense attorneys was suggested by the consultants after pointing out that almost all jailed people here are pretrial detainees. Moving cases to a resolution more quickly, the consultant said, is essential to controlling costs. Others suggestions involved regular management of the jail population and more alternative sentences. Specifics won’t come until midsummer on how much the county is willing to pay attorneys in a revamped system. A part-time system with caps is where agreement began and ended during an hour of talks by an informal committee formed earlier this year on the planning consultant’s recommendations. “We’re not against (a part-time public defender system),” Senior Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick said of reducing the 30 to 40 attorneys routinely appointed to defend those who assert no ability to pay a lawyer. Indigent defense costs ballooned to more than $500,000

Jobs Continued from Page A1. Adjusted for seasonal factors in the work force, the state’s rate becomes 11.5 percent and the national rate 9.9 percent. The countywide labor pool shrank to 22,010 from 22,140, but actual figures for employed and unemployed people showed improvement during the month. Steady success from the STEPS program, which seeks work and then pays wages and benefits up to six months for the recently unemployed, was credited for the improving local picture. “Both initial and continued unemployment claims are down from the previous month,” Vicksburg WIN Job Center branch manager Terry Hodges said. “Year to date, we have placed 64 people into subsidized employment with the Mississippi STEPS program. These two factors could have impacted the unemployment rate for Vicksburg.” Statewide figures reflected gains in the construction and leisure/hospitality categories, according to MDES. Rankin County posted the lowest unemployment in April, at 6.9 percent, down from 7.2 percent in March. Noxubee County posted the highest, at 20.4 percent. Unemployment rates in Sharkey, Issaquena and Claiborne counties were reported lower for the month by more than a point each, at 12.2 percent, 12.8 percent and 15.8 percent, respectively.

In Loving Memory of

Dianne F. King September 5, 1969 May 27, 2001

Precious memories, oh, how they last, because today, Dianne 9 years have passed. Not a day goes by that you’re not on our minds and will be there till the end of time. Remembering you today and every day. Loving memories always, Mom, Dad, Rico, Charquez, Daphne, Buffy the King, Watson and Hall families

in 2009 and have surpassed this year’s budget outlay with four months left in fiscal 2010. About $350,000 to $375,000 needs to be cut from the rest of this year’s spending to balance the books heading into 2010-11, according to recent calculations. State law allows counties to create and fund a public defender staff. Most operate in counties with higher populations than Warren. The advantages are predictability of costs and, according to reports, faster processing of cases. Mentioned numerous times by local officials as a model is Rankin County’s five-person staff, consisting of one lead counsel and four assistants and paid $43,000 and $38,000, respectively. Patrick said he doubted any fewer than 15 attorneys could handle the 9th Circuit District’s case load and voluntary participation would determine effectiveness in a revamped system. For decades here, the practice has been for circuit judges to assign cases to local attorneys willing to participate in an informal rotation. The attorneys then submit bills to the court based on the hours spent and judges have the power to approve or modify fees. “We’re just saying that if we’re given a proposed

budget by the board, we probably could stay within that by capping the public defender fees for certain pleas — or all pleas,” Patrick said, adding a letter will go out to members of the Warren County Bar Association to gauge interest. Most cases are resolved before trial. The circuit district, which includes Sharkey and Issaquena counties, handled 689 cases in 2009 and 281 for 2010 to date, a figure that includes indictments and nobills, District Attorney Ricky Smith said. During a brief session with county supervisors Monday, Patrick and fellow Circuit Court Judge Jim Chaney said a $700 per-case cap was a starting point and state law allowed $1,000. “We’ll know by the July grand jury how many we have on board,” Chaney said. That month’s list of cases to be deemed worthy of trial begins July 26. If a staffing and pay arrangement is buttoned up by then, it could be put into use Oct. 11. Other committee members present Wednesday were Sheriff Martin Pace, District 2 Supervisor William Banks, Youth Court Administrator Rachel Hardy and Warren Yazoo Mental Health executive director Don Brown.

Escobar’s spark lifts Braves over Marlins

MIAMI, Fla. (AP) — Yunel Escobar picked a good time to break out of his slump. Escobar was hitless in his last 15 at-bats before stepping to the plate in the seventh inning Wednesday night. He led off with the single, one of two he had in a six-run inning that lifted the Braves past the Florida Marlins 7-3. “This might be the game that sparks everything and helps me move forward,” said Escobar, who had three hits in his previous 36 at-bats since coming off the disabled list on May 15. “I know the team counts on my offensive production.” Troy Glaus drove in two runs during the inning and Escobar added another single as the Braves sent 11 men to the plate, recorded five hits — all singles — and drew three walks. “We just couldn’t get through that seventh inning,” Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said. With the Marlins leading 2-1 heading into the pivotal inning, Burke Badenhop (0-5) relieved starter Nate Robertson, who struck out five in six innings, and gave up singles to the first two batters before Nate McLouth sacrificed.

Rebel signee propels Myrtle to win

Flashes stunned in Game 2 By Ernest Bowker PEARL — St. Aloysius’ championship party was in full swing Wednesday. Most of the announced crowd of 700 at Trustmark Park wore St. Al T-shirts, cheered wildly and clanged cowbells with each pitch, awaiting the inevitability of the final few outs and another team picture along the first base line. Moments later the crowd silently trudged toward the concourse wondering what had just happened. Sean Wigington’s single with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning scored Syd Beasley from second base, and Myrtle stunned St. Al with a late-inning comeback and a 5-4 walk-off victory in Game 2 of the Class 1A championship series. Myrtle (21-9) scored a run in the sixth to tie it, then got its second walk-off win in four games. The Hawks’ victory evened the best-ofthree series at a game apiece and forced a deciding Game 3 Friday at 10 a.m. at Trustmark Park. “We just didn’t play good enough to win overall. Martin-Nez kept us in it, but we didn’t play well,” St. Al coach Clint Wilkerson said. “We gave them a run on the dropped strikeout early and you can’t do those things and win big-time games.”

State championships Wednesday Long Beach 2, Ridgeland 1 Petal 2, Madison Central 1 Myrtle 5, St. Aloysius 4 Richton 5, Hamilton 0 Today Sumrall vs. Water Valley, 10 a.m. Amory vs. St. Stanislaus, 1 p.m. Ridgeland vs. Long Beach, 4 a.m. Madison Central vs. Petal, 7 p.m. Friday St. Al vs. Myrtle, 10 a.m.

St. Aloysius outfielder Regan Nosser throws the ball in against Myrtle High. Throughout Game 2, St. Al (21-8) hardly resembled the team that rolled to a 6-0 victory in Game 1 on Tuesday. The Flashes left the bases loaded twice and only man-

aged five hits against Myrtle starter Jimel Judon. One of those was a solo home run by Pierson Waring that started a three-run rally in the third inning, tying the game at 3. It

was St. Al’s only extra base hit of the game. Despite their struggles, the Flashes still held a 4-3 lead heading into the bottom of the sixth. Ryno Martin-Nez got leadoff hitter Russ Yates to ground out to second for the first out, making it 10 batters in a row and 13 out of 14 that he had retired after Myrtle scored three runs in the first inning. And then everything fell apart. Judon and Beau Cummings singled to put runners at first and second. Adam Baker followed with a sinking liner to center that St. Al’s Blake Haygood made a diving stop See Flashes, Page B3.

PEARL — Down a game and its Ole Miss-bound player running on fumes, Myrtle was in survival mode in Game 2 Wednesday afternoon against St. Aloysius. The burly Jimel Judon got out of a bases-loaded situation with one out in the top of the seventh and then his teammates got two hits, including the game-winner from Sean Wigington, to send the Class 1A state championship series to a deciding third game on Friday morning at Trustmark Park. Judon felt afterwards that the series momentum is now in the Hawks’ favor against the defending state champion Flashes. “I think the momentum has switched to our side. We’re looking to come out of here with the gold,” Judon said after his gutty 138-pitch performance. He survived a 46-pitch third inning when the Flashes (21-8) rallied with three runs to erase an early 3-0 Myrtle lead. Judon provided two of the Hawks’ runs on a two-run blast off St. Al starter Ryno Martin-Nez. Judon left one up himself and Pierson Waring shot it out of Trustmark to left field to start the Flashes’ rally in the third inning. Judon then walked Regan Nosser on a 3-2 pitch to force in a run and then hit Judson Gatling on the very next pitch to score courtesy runner Luke Burnett in to tie the game at 3. “I got frustrated after he (Waring) hit the home run. I didn’t want this to be my last game,” Judon said. St. Al took the lead in the fourth, when they manufactured a run off Judon. He issued his fifth walk of the game to Brendan Beesley. A missed pickoff throw advanced Matthew Foley to second. See Myrtle, Page B3.

Missed opportunity leads to another on Friday PEARL — Nothing has come easy in St. Al’s run for another state title. Why should the final hurdle be any different? Earlier this season, there were the injuries to Justin Rushing and Ryno MartinNez. There were the two losses to Cathedral and the resulting loss of confidence. The Flashes weathered the storm and got to Trustmark. But now, they have to ride out one final sea filled with gales and swells Friday at 10 a.m. Wednesday’s Game 2 loss was a microsm of the low points of St. Al’s season. There were the moments that made St. Al fans realize how cruel the game really is. Like Blake Haygood’s diving catch of a Adam Baker

STEVE WILSON fly ball in center. He dove for it, rolled and came up with the ball securely in his glove. Never did it bounce out. But the umpires conferred and ruled that he trapped the ball. The lead run scored as a result. In the bottom of the inning, Haygood hit a similar line drive to center and there was an almost identical rolling catch by Myrtle’s center fielder. This one, however, was ruled an out.

Then there were the missed opportunities. There was Regan Nosser’s at-bat with bases loaded and one out in the top of the seventh. Despite a strong outing in the box, Nosser struck out, unable to connect with a 3-2 curveball. Good at-bat, but as the saying goes, a stellar .400 hitter like Nosser is only successful four times out of 10. Next batter Judson Gatling popped out to end the frame and strand three runners. Cruel yet again. But the game shouldn’t have come down to a single at-bat. The bottom line is that Ryno Martin-Nez had a great performance. After getting touched up by Jimel Judon’s two-run bomb and a few more hits, he settled down,

threw strikes and pitched well. “Ryno pitched a hell of a game,” St. Al catcher Brendan Beesley said. “He pitched well enough for us to win.” Offensively, the Flashes struggled against Judon, Myrtle’s No. 2 pitcher, despite grinding him down with long at-bats. By the time the seventh inning had rolled around, his delivery slowed as his pitch count zoomed into triple digits. His fastball, which topped around 84 mph, was down to the high 70s. His curveball didn’t have its earlier snap. Yet, the Flashes were unable to string together enough hits against him to get anything done. Now, Wednesday is done.

Stephen Evans, the winner of Game 1, will throw Game 3 with fellow senior Nosser and Reed Evans ready in relief. The defense, stellar in Game 1 and more or less mistake-free in Game 2, won’t be a question mark either. The difference between a St. Al repeat and a disappointing end will be the Flashes’ bats. Wednesday was an opportunity lost. Friday presents a new one. •

minor league baseball Baybears take series opener from M-Braves The Mobile Baybears erased a 3-0 deficit as they beat the Mississippi Braves 9-3 at Hank Aaron Stadium in game 1 of a five-game series on Wednesday. In the top of the second, Mauro Gomez led off the inning with a single, which was followed by the seventh home run of the season from Donell Linares. Michael Daniel made his M-Braves’ debut a memorable one in his first at-bat, as his solo shot gave the M-Braves a 3-0 lead going into the bottom of the second. After Mobile cut the lead in the bottom of the inning with a single, a Bryan Byrne grand slam gave the Baybears a lead they would not relinquish.

NFL Thomas, Brown absent from Saints workouts METAIRIE, La. — Running back Pierre Thomas and left tackle Jammal Brown have been absent from the New Orleans Saints’ offseason training sessions this week. It was not immediately clear why Thomas skipped this week’s workouts after participating in the team’s voluntary conditioning program earlier this offseason. Although Thomas wants a new multiyear contract, the fourthyear player said last month that he would attend offseason team activities while negotiations were ongoing. Saints spokesman Greg Bensel confirmed Thomas’ and Brown’s absences on Wednesday. Brown, who missed last season with a hip injury and also is unhappy with his contract, was not expected to show up this week after skipping all of the Saints’ offseason program so far.

Tennis Courcol named to Collegiate Tennis Hall STARKVILLE — Former Mississippi State men’s tennis player Daniel Courcol has been inducted into the Collegiate Tennis Hall of Fame, Ceremonies were held Wednesday in Athens, Ga. A native of Paris, France, Courcol was a three-year letter winner (1991-93) for the Bulldog tennis squad. He earned all-America honors four times during his career — twice in singles (1992-93) and twice in doubles (1991, ’93) — and also received all-Southeastern Conference honors multiple times. A member of three State teams that reached the NCAA round of 16, Courcol helped led the Bulldogs to the SEC title in 1993. Courcol is the only player in Mississippi State history to hold the nation’s top ranking in both singles and doubles.

Rebels take SEC tournament opener Flashes

Continued from Page B1.

From staff, wire reports Drew Pomeranz pitched seven shutout innings and Miles Hamblin hit a two-run homer to lift Ole Miss to a 3-0 win over South Carolina on Wednesday in the first round of the Southeastern Conference tournament. The sixth-seeded Rebels (3720) snapped a five-game losing streak and advanced to face Alabama. The No. 3 Gamecocks (43-13) try to stay alive against Auburn in the doubleelimination tournament. Pomeranz (8-2), the SEC pitcher of the year, allowed six hits while striking out seven and walking one. Brett Huber gave up one hit in the final two innings to complete the shutout and earn his 11th save. Hamblin supplied all the offense Ole Miss needed with a two-run homer over the right-field fence in the third inning. Taylor Hashman went 2-for-3 with an RBI single. Jackie Bradley Jr. and Christian Walker had two hits apiece for South Carolina.

LSU 10, Florida 6 Austin Nola and Mason Katz each had three hits and two RBIs as LSU pounded out 19 hits in defeating Florida. Matt Gaudet had a solo home run and was one of eight LSU players with a multiple-hit game. The top-seeded Gators (40-14) entered the tournament having won 14 of their past 16, but quickly fell behind for good when eighth-seeded LSU (37-20) scored five runs in the second inning. Anthony Ranaudo (4-2) struck out five over 72⁄3 innings to earn the victory. Florida’s Brian Johnson (5-3) gave up seven runs in 32⁄3 innings to take the loss.

Graves hammered a two-run homer to left and right fielder Tyler Koelling sent the very next pitch over the wall just right of center to make it 4-0. Memphis starter Ryan Fraser got a fly ball to right for the second out of the stanza, but USM shortstop B.A. Vollmuth followed with a two-run bomb to cap a six-run stanza. Vollmuth’s round-tripper was his eighth in the last eight games and ended Fraser’s day. Marc Ashley came out of the

bullpen to get out of the inning without any further damage done and followed that with a scoreless fifth. An inning later, however, Southern Miss designated hitter Adam Doleac left the ballpark deep to right on a 2-2 offering to plate Mark Ellis to account for the Golden Eagles’ final tally. Memphis avoided the shutout with a pair of runs in the top of the ninth.

Orlando stays alive in Eastern finals ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Not ready to go home just yet, the only place the Orlando Magic are headed is back to Boston. Halfway to history. Taking another step toward overcoming an improbable 3-0 series deficit, Dwight Howard had 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Magic to a 113-92 victory over the Celtics on Wednesday night in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals. “I don’t know if you can say you have momentum when you’re down 3-2 going into their place,” Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said. “I still look at it like we’re climbing a huge mountain here. But we are playing better.” Much better. A series that looked like a sweep a few days ago now has the Celtics taking a slim lead into a pressure-packed Game 6 in Boston on Friday night. The Celtics are facing the possibility of playing it without Kendrick Perkins after their starting center picked up his seventh technical foul of the playoffs, a mandatory suspension unless it is overturned. A potential Game 7 would be in Orlando. No NBA team has won a series after losing the first three games. The Magic, seemingly lifeless after a blowout defeat in Game 3, suddenly have hope to be the first. They broke out of their series-long shooting slump, making 13-of-25 3-pointers. “I just feel that if we keep believing in each other and trusting one another and playing as hard as we can, anything’s possible,” Howard said. Jameer Nelson scored 24 points, and J.J. Redick had 14 to help the Magic to a frenetic pace that the Celtics couldn’t sustain. Howard added five blocks as Orlando built an early 14-point lead that was

anxiety rushes through your body any time you’re sliding into home plate,” Beasley said. As Myrtle celebrated the Flashes hurried out of their dugout. Both to make room for Madison Central, which was playing the next game, and to flee the experience of having their season turned upside-down in less than 20 minutes. “We didn’t get it done. I didn’t get it done,” a glum Nosser said as he packed up his belongings. The Flashes aren’t done, though. They’ll have a day to regroup, to regain the focus that helped them rip off seven consecutive playoff wins before Wednesday’s setback. They’ve won both times they’ve faced elimination in the past two seasons and will try to make it 3-for-3 on Friday. “One way or another the season is over Friday,” Wilkerson said, “and I know these guys don’t want to go out like that.”


Southeastern Conference

hit three homers in part of a six-run fourth and added two more runs in the sixth courtesy of another bomb. Seven of USM’s eight runs came via the long ball. Southern Miss won for the 15th time in its last 19 games to improve to 33-21 on the year. Memphis fell to 27-29. Center fielder Dillon Day got things going for Southern Miss in the fourth when he reached on a fielder’s choice, advanced 180 feet via a stolen base and wild pitch, and came around to score on an RBI double off the bat of third baseman Joey Archer. From there, Travis

on. Umpires ruled it a trap, though, allowing the tying run to score and negating a potential inning-ending double play. “It was a tough call from my angle, but it did look like it skipped,” said Myrtle coach Robert Gordon, who saw the play from the third base coach’s box. “If he catches that, we’re doubled off second for sure.” After St. Al left the bases loaded in the top of the seventh, Myrtle started its winning rally. Beasley led off with an infield single and was bunted to second. Wigington followed with a sharp single to right field. Regan Nosser charged the ball, but had it fall out of his glove. Even with the bobble, Nosser made a strong throw to the plate that had a chance to cut down Beasley. St. Al catcher Brendan Beesley, though, dropped the ball as he turned to tag Myrtle’s Beasley, who slid in with the winning run. “It’s really awesome. The

Continued from Page B1. The Flashes then brought him home on two ground balls, the latter coming from Blake Haygood for a 4-3 advantage. By the seventh, Judon was over 120 pitches and bases were loaded after one-out hits by Martin-Nez and Reed Evans and Judon’s sixth walk of the game to Stephen Evans. “I was just trying to gut it out. I got the next guy out on a 3-2 curveball and then a popup,” Judon said. In the bottom of the seventh, Syd Beasley got an infield single and then scored the winning run on Wiging-

ton’s one out hit to right. St. Al centerfielder Blake Haygood knows what the Flashes must do Friday in Game 3. “We have got to hit the ball,” said Haygood, who is St. Al’s leading hitter, but went 0-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI. “We just need to be more consistent and get the job done,” Haygood said. Myrtle’s Game 1 starter was Northeast Mississippi signee Beau Cummings. He gave up six runs off six hits, but had just one strikeout in a 6-0 loss.

Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard dunks as Boston Celtic guard Rajon Rondo, left, defends, during the Magic’s 113-92 victory over the Celtic in Game 5 Wednesday.

nba playoffs never seriously challenged. Rasheed Wallace had 21 points, and Rajon Rondo scored 19 for a Boston team that once seemed on its way to another NBA finals. Now? The Celtics are stunned and dazed — and Boston fans who just watched their NHL team blow a 3-0 lead are getting uneasy. Howard’s elbow inadvertently came down on Glen “Big Baby” Davis’ face near the basket in the third quarter, giving the Celtics forward a concussion. Davis tried to get up as play continued on the other end, wobbling his way to midcourt, almost falling flat as referee Joey Crawford kept him from tumbling to the hardwood. Davis did not return. Reserve Marquis Daniels also was hit with a similar inadvertent elbow from Howard, leaving him dizzy, and Wallace “tweaked” his back.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Davis “blacked out” on the court, and the training staff will examine the forward Thursday. “I don’t know what kind of tests they’re going to do with Baby. He’s a little delirious anyway,” Rivers said, chuckling. Give the Magic a little more than a puncher’s chance. Redick provided a big boost off the bench, making a pair of 3-pointers to highlight a 20-8 run that put Orlando ahead 51-37 in the second quarter. His swishes and crisp passing kept the Celtics scrambling, and it filled a major hole with starter Vince Carter continuing to struggle. Amid an amped-up Amway Arena, Wallace picked up his third foul during the spurt and taunted Orlando fans all the way to bench. Wallace shouted and screamed to the stands, pointing at his ring finger for the championship he already won with Detroit — a title that has long eluded Orlando.

Things got even worse for the Celtics when Perkins was ejected after he picked up his second technical of the game and seventh of the postseason for arguing with officials. Perkins and Marcin Gortat were whistled for double technicals a few minutes prior after they got tangled up. That means Perkins, one of the best defenders in the league on Howard, will be suspended for Game 6 unless the NBA rescinds the technical. NBA spokesman Tim Frank said a final review of the technicals was expected to be announced by mid-to-late morning today. The Celtics are two games from infamy, and the pressure is mounting. Only four times in the history of North American major pro sports leagues has a team won a playoff series after losing the first three games. Such comebacks are something Boston fans know all too well.

Ellen DeGeneres starts record label After a season judging singers on “American Idol,” Ellen DeGeneres is delving deeper into the music business with her own label. The talk-show host was announcing on her show Wednesday that she is starting a label called eleveneleven. Her first act will be 12-year-old Greyson Chance, who recently became a sensation on YouTube with his piano version of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi.” There’s no word on when the label will start. It Ellen was formed with Telepictures Productions. DeGeneres Besides DeGeneres, Greyson has some other strong people behind him: Madonna’s manager and Lady Gaga’s manager.

DeWyze takes ’American Idol’ crown Simon Cowell was granted his final wish on “American Idol.” Lee DeWyze, the bashful paint sales clerk championed early by the biting British judge on the Fox singing contest, was crowned “Idol” Wednesday over single mother Crystal Bowersox. His victory was based on votes cast after Tuesday’s performances, which drew more acclaim from the judges for Bowersox, though DeWyze was Cowell’s favorite from the outset. DeWyze knew it, too. Back during Hollywood Week, the show’s rapid-fire post-audition phase, he took note of Cowell tapping along as he crooned The Fray’s “You Found Me.” It became clearer after his rendition of Snow Patrol’s “Chasing Cars” during the first round of the semifinals that Cowell was pushing for the throaty underdog from Mount Prospect, Ill. “I fought for you to be here,” he told DeWyze. “I still believe in you.” Such affirmations helped the unassuming rocker to overcome his shortcomings, namely a lack of self-confidence, to take down BowerLee sox, arguably the ninth season’s most powerDeWyze ful singer. Despite his innate shyness, DeWyze solidified himself as a contender early in the finals with deft takes on The Box Tops’“The Letter” and the Rolling Stones’“Beast of Burden.” “You are growing faster than anybody on this stage,” Kara DioGuardi told him. Indeed, DeWyze was always on the ascent, powering through walking pneumonia for the Cornelius Brothers’“Treat Her Like a Lady,” and making everyone take notice when he unexpectedly dueted with a bagpipe player on The Beatles’“Hey Jude.” The sheepish vocalist struggled more at conversing with Ryan Seacrest and maneuvering through the group routines than singing.


Loud muffler helps man retrieve truck You can hear Alex Hansen’s truck coming. Or going, which was the case when thieves drove it away from his Longview, Wash., home. The 27-year-old Hansen said he heard the muffler noise at 5 a.m. Tuesday and ran outside in shorts to see that his 1996 Toyota T-100 was gone. He then grabbed his girlfriend’s car keys and followed the noise. Hansen soon caught up to his truck, which was traveling with another vehicle. After following the caravan for nearly 10 minutes, Hansen said he watched the thief stop the truck, jump out and run off. Hansen drove his truck home and surprised a police officer who had just finished taking a report from a neighbor whose car had been broken into. Hansen said the thieves took his tools, camera and wallet. They have not been apprehended.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Art Linkletter, who encouraged both kids and grownups to say the “darndest things” during his decades as a genial but gently mischievious television personality, has died at age 97. The host of “People Are Funny” and “House Party” of the 1950s and ’60s died Wednesday at his home in the Bel-Air section of Los Angeles. “He lived a long, full, pure life, and the Lord had need for him,” said his son-in-law, Art Hershey, the husband of Sharon LinkletterHershey said. Linkletter had been ill “in the last few weeks time, but bear in mind he was 97 years old. He wasn’t eating well, and the aging process took him,” Hershey said. Linkletter hadn’t been diagnosed with any life-threatening disease, he said. Linkletter was known on TV for his funny interviews with children and ordinary folks. He also collected their comments in a number of best-selling books. “Because of Art Linkletter, adults found themselves enjoying children,” said Bill Cosby, whose style interviewing kids on his own show in the late ’90s was often compared to Linkletter’s. “An amazing fellow, a terrific broadcast talent, a brilliant businessman. An all-around good guy,” CNN’s Larry King added about his longtime friend and frequent guest. Asked what made Linkletter so appealing to audiences, King said, “He had an unusual voice, a twang to his voice that was immediately recognizable. And he looked like your favorite uncle.” “Art Linkletter’s House Party,” one of television’s longest-running variety shows, debuted on radio in 1944 and was seen on CBS-TV from 1952 to 1969. “On ‘House Party’ I would talk to you and bring out the fact that you had been letting your boss beat you at golf over a period of months as part of your campaign to get a raise,” Linkletter wrote. “All the while, without your knowledge, your boss would be sitting a few feet away listening, and at the appropriate moment, I would bring you together,” he wrote. “Now, that’s funny, because the laugh arises out of a real situation.” Linkletter’s programs — like many of today’s reality TV shows — often relied on ordinary people sharing too much information on national television. But his shows were far gentler than today’s often meanspirited productions. His guests experienced, at most, mild embarrassment instead of utter humiliation. When Linkletter elicited an all-toorevealing remark from a guest, he did it with devilish charm, not malice. Though “House Party” had many features, the best-known was the daily interviews with schoolchildren. Linkletter collected quotes from children into “Kids Say The Darndest Things,” and it sold in the millions. The book “70 Years of Best Sellers 18951965” ranked “Kids Say the Darndest Things” as the 15th top seller among nonfiction books in that period. The prime time “People Are

tion and remote broadcasts, before forming his own production company in the 1940s and striking it big with “People Are Funny” and “House Party.” Linkletter was born Arthur Gordon Kelly on July 17, 1912, in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. His unwed mother put him up for adoption when he was a baby; when he was about 7, he and his adoptive parents

Art Linkletter Funny,” which began on radio in 1942 and ran on TV from 1954 to 1961, emphasized slapstick humor and audience participation — things like throwing a pie in the face of a contestant who couldn’t tell his Social Security number in five seconds, or asking him to go out and cash a check written on the side of a watermelon. The down-to-earth charm of Linkletter’s broadcast persona seemed to be mirrored by his private life with his wife of more than a half-century, Lois. They had five children, whom he wrote about in his books and called the “Links.” But in 1969, his 20-year-old daughter, Diane, jumped to her death from her sixth-floor Hollywood apartment. He blamed her death on LSD use, but toxicology tests found no LSD in her body after she died. Still, the tragedy prompted Linkletter to become a crusader against drugs. A son, Robert, died in a car accident in 1980. Another son, Jack Linkletter, was 70 when he died of lymphoma in 2007. Art Linkletter got his first taste of broadcasting with a part-time job while attending San Diego State College in the early 1930s. He graduated in 1934. He held a series of radio and promotion jobs in California and Texas, experimenting with audience participa-

If you can find a worthwhile project that needs doing and tests your talents as well, all the better. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — People who meet you for the first time will find you to be an interesting and fun person to know. More than one will consider developing a close friendship with you to be most desirable. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Before launching a new project over the weekend, finalize one you started that needs completion. With it out of the way, you’ll be free to start something new.

There might even be more in it for you than you had hoped or anticipated.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: Our family has moved from Detroit to Pittsburgh because our father had a job transfer. I am 14 1/2 years old and was about to get my driver’s learning permit in Detroit. I was really, really looking forward to getting my permit. I just found out that Pennsylvania law requires that to be eligible for a learner’s permit, a teen must be at least 16 years old. This isn’t fair. This means I must wait another year and a half to make my dream come true — to get my learner’s permit. I wouldn’t have felt so bad if the minimum age was 15, but 16 is outrageous. Why do states have such different age laws on getting a driver’s learning permit? My dad has taught me how to drive already, but I can’t legally do it. — Kevin, Pittsburgh. Kevin: Some laws that require a minimum age to participate are set by the federal government and all states must adhere to them. For example, all states and the District of Columbia require that a person must be at least 21 years of age before consuming alcohol. The minimum voting age set by the federal government is 18, which this applies to all 50 states and the District of Columbia. But states have the sole authority to make their own laws on a myriad of regulations. The age requirement for driver’s learning permits is one of the regulations that is determined by individual states. Nine states have a 14 minimum age requirement (Alaska, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Idaho, Kansas, Arkansas, Iowa, Michigan). Eight states and Washington, D.C., require teens to be at least 16 (Kentucky, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware). The remaining 33 states set a minimum age for a driver’s permit to be 15. The federal government is contemplating legislation to create a national standard that includes safety policies for young drivers — most importantly, raising the minimum age from 14 or 15 in most states to be 16 in all states and the District of Columbia. According to Anne McCartt, senior vice president for research at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, raising the learner’s permit age to 16 would reduce the fatal crash rate by about 13 percent. Many parents are against raising the minimum age to 16 because it would require parents to chauffer their children for a longer period of time, but McCartt thinks more parents might support an older licensing age if they really “understood the safety benefits.” • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

what I’m urging you to do. You need someone who is not emotionally involved to help you get your head straight. Once you do, you will have a better idea of what you want to do and how to accomplish it. You should also save the evidence, in case your wife tries in the coming months to lay the blame for her infidelity on you. You have my sympathy. Dear Abby: My son was married a short time ago. The reception was held at my condo member hall. After the reception, the bride and groom asked me to refrigerate the leftover bottom layer of the wedding cake. They said they’d pick it up the next day. Six days later, the cake was still in my fridge. They made excuses every day for not picking it up. Finally, I threw it away. Now I’m the bad guy, and

the bride is demanding an apology. Abby, the cake was hard and crusty, and I felt six days was long enough. Was I wrong in dumping the cake? — Father of the Groom in Fort Worth Dear Father: Let me put it this way — rather than storing the cake in the fridge, it should have immediately gone into the freezer so it could be eaten at a later date. But because that didn’t happen, and the cake was fit only to be used as a paving stone or a doorstop, the logical thing to do was throw it away. Dear Abby: I am in my 50s and part of a management team at work. My first name is Mary. Every time the boss sees me he starts reciting that nursery rhyme, “Mary, Mary, quite contrary!” I find it belittling and insulting. I have expressed my dislike

of what he’s doing, but he can’t seem to stop. Is this a form of workplace harassment? — “Quite” Annoyed in Alabama Dear Annoyed: If you have told your boss you find what he’s doing to be unwelcome and he continues anyway, it might qualify as creating a hostile work environment. It appears you work for an insen-

Rice bodies plague patient after surgery Dear Dr. Gott: My healing wasn’t complete a year following rotator-cuff surgery. My shoulder became red and swollen. My doctor opened it up to see what was going on and found “rice bodies” — thousands of them. I understand this is a rare thing and that little is known about the cause or the treatment. I am specifically interested in knowing what antibiotics should be used. I am now on infusion therapy. Also, could these be elsewhere in my body? Dear Reader: Identified and documented as far back as 1895, rice bodies were originally thought related to tuberculous arthritis. The name originated because of a similarity in appearance to grains of polished white rice. Today, rice bodies are commonly linked with chronic rheumatoid arthritis, as a complication of bursitis or an underlying systemic disorder. They appear to represent an unrelated group of particles that may contain fibrin, fibronectin, mononuclear and blood cells, collagen and amorphous materials. Diagnosis is accomplished through X-ray, ultrasound or MRI. I cannot tell you which antibiotic to take because management depends on the underlying cause. For example, if your rice bodies are the result of chronic bursitis, an antibiotic may not be appropriate. Only your physician can direct you in that regard. Elimination of the offender in conjunction with treatment for any possible underlying disease should provide relief. Infusion therapy is a means of administering medication through a needle or catheter intravenously. Infections and disorders unresponsive to oral medications, dehydration, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, congestive heart failure and immune deficiencies are commonly handled through this form of therapy. Thirty years ago, patients being infused were required to remain in the hospital for the duration of the treatment. However, with expenses as they are in a hospital setting, the same service can now be provided in an outpatient setting or at home. Rice bodies can be found in joint areas such as the shoulder, knee or ankle. If your condition is the result of chronic bursitis or RA, multiple joints can be affected, but I can’t guess whether that will occur in your case. Dear Dr. Gott: Many publications have inserts in them for discounts on prescription drugs. When I see these, I tear them out, take them to my pharmacy, and present them at the window where prescriptions are filled. Employees save them to use for customers who don’t have insurance. Why do I do this? Because I have insurance and can help others who do not. Dear Reader: Target and Walmart offer $4 prescriptions for a one-month supply of medication. There may be other

large chains I am unaware of that provide a similar program. This is of enormous assistance to everyone, but primarily those on a fixed income who must watch every penny. Over the years, I have known patients who cut their medication in half, making a prescription last twice as long. If we all take your lead and make an effort to help others in similar ways, we will be doing something good for our communities and perhaps might even feel better about ourselves.

Dear Abby: A few months ago I became suspicious that my wife of 40 years was having an affair with an old high school friend. At first I thought I was misreading the signs. Then I found an unfinished e-mail on our computer making a date to meet him “at our special place,” and I was crushed. I began gathering information and found it was true and that it had been going on for some time. When I confronted her, she denied everything until I told her about the e-mail and everything else I had found. She eventually admitted it was true and said she had wanted only to see if she was still attractive to men because she felt we were “drifting apart in our lives.” We tried counseling, but when she was able to make only one appointment due
