Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., was a common theme from poll managers this morning. Culkin precinct, the county’s largest and reliably Republican, had just 12 voters in the first 45 minutes, poll manager Bill Collins said. “There hasn’t been a whole lot of interest,” Collins said. “Also, Bennie’s had a lock on this for so long.” Thompson, 62 and in office 17 years, is unopposed in the Democratic primary and is assured a place in the Nov. 2 general election for a ninth full term. He chairs the House Homeland Security Committee. The three Republicans on today’s ballot — George Bailey, Richard Cook and Bill Marcy — have run low-budget to no-budget campaigns. A runoff election will be June 22 if no candidate receives a majority of votes. Poll workers had ample time to finish off their breakfasts at Car-

Despite having no conductor and no barge from which to play, the 39-piece American Wind Symphony Orchestra performed for a City Front audience of about 1,000 Monday evening as the sun set over the Yazoo Diversion Canal. The orchestra normally plays on a custom-built, 195-foot barge complete with lights and sound system, but the swift currents of the bloated Mississippi River drastically slowed the barge — including its captain and orchestra conductor, Robert Boudreau — and left it somewhere around Baton Rouge for the 7 p.m. start of the show. “I got a call Sunday evening saying the barge might not make it in time, and we started calling people right away to try to make the adjustments,” said Larry Gawronski, who helped coordinate the Memorial Day concert and is executive director of the company managing the convention center and auditorium. “We were determined to have this concert, and a lot of people really had to step up at the last minute to make it happen.” Along with the conductor, the barge was also carrying a number of large tympani and bass drums, a glockenspiel and music stands necessary for the show.

BP shares fall after latest try to cap well fails By The Associated Press PORT FOURCHON, La. — BP lost billions more in market value today when shares fell steeply in the first trading day since the company failed to plug the worst oil spill Mississippi in U.S. history, beaches clear, as investors but tourists few realized the best chance to stop the leak was months away and there was no end in sight to the cleanup. As hurricane season began on the fragile Gulf Coast, BP settled in for the longterm. With the ambitious “top kill” abandoned over the weekend, BP’s hope to stanch the leak lies with two relief wells that won’t be finished until at least August. The company is, however, trying another temporary fix to contain the oil and siphon it to the

19 read 4,350 books to champion AR quest By David Hopper email@example.com A second-grade class at Dana Road Elementary has raced to the finish line for the academic year. Teacher Kimberly Rhodman expected her students to read at least one book each, but the 19 students read a combined 4,350 books — with a few reading more than 400 — to make them the 2010 Accelerated Reader Champs. “They sort of took off without me,” Rhodman said during a reception Thursday to recognize the class. “I didn’t know it would
blow up like this. My goal was to get them excited about reading.” The 9,000-student consolidated district finished the school year Friday. Parental encouragement was critical, Rhodman said. “I’ve never had this much parent participation and that’s key,” she said. Students could read a book or have someone read it to them, Rhodman said.

Customer service is one of the things people take for granted, but it has the power to change more than your job...it can ultimately change your community.”

No oily beaches, but spill threatens tourism By Holbrook Mohr The Associated Press BILOXI — Paul Dawa and friend Ezekial Momgeri spent Memorial Day on Biloxi beach, sipping Coronas after a night at the Hard Rock Casino. Both men, originally from Kenya, drove from Memphis for the holiday weekend, which kicks off the summer tourist season on white-sand beaches and a string of flashy casinos. It’s easy to get the perception from news coverage that oil is everywhere, said Momgeri, a 37-year-old business analyst. “We talked about it and we decided to come down and see for ourselves. There’s no oil here,” Momgeri said. The men were chased off the beach, but not by oil. Instead, a seasonal storm dumped rain and spit lightning. “We kind of figured that not too many people would be here (because of the oil spill) and we could get good deals,” said Dawa, 36, also a business analyst. They came to the right place for bargains. Though some tar balls have been found on Mississippi beaches and barrier islands, major oil deposits from the illfated Deepwater Horizon have not reached the shore. Still, the perception that it has soiled

It may never be here. It’s costing a lot of money to counter that perception,” Hornsby said. “First it was cancelations, but that evolved to a decrease in calls and there’s no way to measure that.” She estimates hotels are taking a 50 percent hit from usual business, thanks to the spill. To fight back, they are lowering rates and offering other incentives to lure wary tourists at a time of year when business usually booms. Some hotels are
offering a $75 gas card to attract regional travelers. Charter boats, restaurants and other businesses in the hospitality industry also are being pinched. “Most charter boat captains would be getting one to two calls a day this time of year. I talked to one who said he hasn’t had a call since the middle of May,” Hornsby said. “And they’re catching tons of fish.” Bob Taylor owns a bar and several restaurants on the Mississippi coast. Business is down and the prospect it may be August before the leak is plugged is frightening. “It could be nothing but nega-
tive. BP has agreed to do some advertising for the coast, but I’m not sure how much good it will do,” Taylor said. Rick Carter, co-owner of Island View Casino Resort in Gulfport, issued a statement saying businesses are “watching and waiting to see what the final outcome of this situation will be.” “We know a healthy Gulf means a healthy economy for our fishing and hospitality industries, which are longtime financial lifelines for the Mississippi Gulf Coast,” Carter said. Hentzel Yucles of Gulfport, who hung out on the beach with his wife and sons, said there just aren’t as many people enjoying the beaches these days. “Before the spill, even on a Monday or Tuesday, there would be more people here,” he said, pointing down the beach. “Now look around, there’s only one or two families on a mile stretch. It’s sad.” Yucles and his family sat in their car to wait out a passing shower. Then went back to the beach. He said the companies responsible need to quit “pointing fingers” and find a way to stop the oil that is gushing from 5,000 feet below the surface some 50 miles off the Louisiana coast. The Deepwater Horizon, operated by BP, exploded April 20 and sank two days later.

No charges have been filed in the case, pending an autopsy and tests from the Mississippi State Crime Lab on evidence including a shotgun collected at the scene.

Limits of Constitution ignored once again Seven Supreme Court justices have cut one of the few remaining strings tying the exercise of congressional power to its constitutional enumeration. In a 7-2 decision in United States v. Comstock, the court upheld the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, which empowers federal officials to order the indefinite civil commitment of “sexually dangerous” people who have completed their federal prison sentences. The majority ruled that Congress had the authority under the Constitution’s Necessary and Proper Clause, which grants it the power “to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States.” Like the Commerce Clause, the Necessary and Proper Clause over the years has been stretched thin and produced similar distortions. The Necessary and Proper Clause comes at the end of Article I, Section 8, and its key word is “foregoing.” It refers to the previously enumerated powers granted to Congress. The list is long, but specific. Unfortunately,
it often has been ignored by Congress and the courts, who are transfixed by the idea that anything lawmakers deem “necessary and proper” is fair game. James Madison said the clause “only extended to the enumerated powers. Should Congress attempt to extend it to any power not enumerated, it would not be warranted by the clause.” Well, Madison has been dead a long time, and such quaint sentiments have been buried with him. The majority of justices in Comstock accepted the federal government’s argument that the 2006 law was “necessary and proper” to operating the federal prison system. That’s not an enumerated power, but is itself a “necessary and proper” execution of Congress’ constitutional authority to enforce federal criminal laws. That’s reasonable elasticity. Comstock stretches it to the breaking point. Incarcerating people beyond their prison sentences is not a function of maintaining a court system, nor does their release interfere with the execution of enumerated powers. This is legislating via six degrees of constitutional separation. And the court has provided room for a seventh or more.
Justice Samuel Alito reluctantly concurred with the majority, but expressed concern about the “ambiguity of the standard” the court applied to the Necessary and Proper Clause. Nevertheless, Alito believed that because it is in the public’s interest to detain sexual deviants, Congress is authorized to act. In his dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas (joined by Justice Antonin Scalia) properly responds, “the Constitution does not vest in Congress the authority to protect society from every bad act that might befall it.” He correctly points out that “the power to care for the mentally ill and ... to protect the community from some mentally ill persons, are among the numerous powers that remain with the States.” If sexual offenders are not to be trusted upon release from prison, then the solution is for states to impose lifelong sentences for those crimes. Comstock usurps that power from the states and federalizes a punishment without appropriate constitutional authorization. That sets a precedent for Congress to further extend its already fearsome reach.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler
Pace of executions could be picking up speed The three longest serving inmates on Mississippi’s death row have been there a combined 88 years. Logic would suggest they’d be next in line for execution, but they’re probably not. Richard Jordan (33 years), William Wiley (28 years) and James Billiot (27 years) have appeals pending in the federal courts, and their cases could be tied up another year or two. The recent executions of Paul Everette Woodward and Gerald James Holland have prompted Attorney General Jim Hood and Corrections Commissioner Christopher Epps to say as many as three more death sentences could be carried out this year. Epps said his staff at the Parchman penitentiary can handle the job, particularly with the first back-to-back executions over two days in nearly 50 years. “We’re making sure we have everything ready, so when the order comes ... we’ll be able to carry out the law,” Epps said. Epps said he believes time is run-

ning out for many on death row. Hood anticipates the executions of Joseph Burns and Frederick Bell this year. The identity of the third inmate possibly to be executed is unclear. Hood’s office said there are 11 appeals pending in the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. “We just don’t know when or which case will be decided next,” said Jan Schaefer, spokeswoman for Hood’s office. Burns has an appeal pending before the U.S. Supreme Court, and Hood expects justices to reject it by June
30. Then, Hood said, an execution could be set for late July or early August. A three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit denied Bell a new trial last summer. Bell has requested a hearing before the full 5th Circuit; that motion is pending. “Our presumption is if the 5th Circuit denies something soon, we can get to the Supreme Court. While it’s often hard to predict how long they will take ... if it is on an average pace we should know something by the fall on Bell,” Hood said. Burns, now 42, was sentenced to
death in Lee County in 1996. He was convicted in the 1994 robbery and murder of a motel clerk. Bell, now 38, was convicted of the 1991 murder of a grocery store clerk. He was sentenced to death in Grenada County in 1993. “They’ve run every rabbit trail they can,” Hood said of Burns and Bell. Mississippi has not executed more than two inmates in any year since 1961, when five were put to death, according to records at the Department of Corrections. In Texas, 450 convicted murderers have been executed in the last 25 years. Mississippi has executed 43 since March 1955, including Holland and Woodward. Marcie Walker of Wiggins — sister of 15-year-old Krystal King of Gulfport, who was killed by Holland — witnessed Holland’s execution. She told reporters the state shouldn’t let people sit on death row for years: “Mississippi should be like Texas and put in an express lane.” In 1997, Mississippi Gov. Kirk Fordice told a newly formed criminal jus-
tice study group that the state lets prisoners linger on death row too long. “Texas executed two in one day again the other day. Arkansas has done the same thing,” Fordice said. “Both of those states are continually working down their inventory on death row, and ours continues to grow.” Hood said the situation has improved since federal law was changed during the Bill Clinton administration to allow death penalty cases to be expedited if the state can show it has provided competent defense. He said the Mississippi Supreme Court has taken steps to prod trial judges to act more quickly on post conviction claims in death row cases. •

Oil Continued from Page A1. surface by sawing through the leaking pipe and putting a cap over the spill. The cleanup, relief wells and temporary fixes were being watched closely by President Barack Obama’s administration. Obama planned to meet for the first time today with the co-chairmen of an independent commission investigating the spill, while Attorney General Eric Holder was headed to the Gulf Coast to meet with state attorneys general. Obama’s energy czar, Carol Browner, said she doesn’t want to guess the prospects for success on BP’s containment cap. Interviewed on a morning television show, Browner said, “I don’t want to put odds on it. ... We want to get this thing contained.” Browner also said she’s concerned about the effect the hurricane season, which began today, could have on ending the environmental crisis. To accommodate more than 500 workers hired to clean up the worst oil spill in U.S. history, BP and several subcontractors have set up floating hotels, or “flotels,” made up of steel boxes resembling oversized shipping containers and stacked atop barges. At Port Fourchon, the oil industry’s hub on the Gulf, a flotel there is the only way to station workers in a massive shipyard surrounded by ecologically sensitive marshes and beaches. “There are no permanent residents here on the port,” said Dennis Link, a manager from a BP refinery who’s handling logistics at the 1,300-acre site that’s easily accessible by ship, but reachable on land only by a state road that snakes through the bayous. On Monday afternoon, the living quarters on the flotel sat empty. Generators pumped in cool air and powered the lights, and at the foot of each bunk sat a towel, washcloth and individually wrapped bar of soap. If necessary, four tents on dry land nearby can house 500 more workers. Workers will likely be trucked in on the two-lane state road.
The associated press
Workers head to the beach to clean up oil residue in Grand Isle, La. The accommodations on the barge are Spartan, but comfortable — similar to military barracks. Each pod contains 12 bunks, with a bathroom for every four. Per Coast Guard standards, each resident gets 30 square feet of space in the quarters. The barge has 10 washers, 10 dryers and a kitchen, although food will be served in a tent on land. The quarters are typically floated alongside offshore oil rigs to supplement housing on the drilling operations. Another flotel sits about 15 miles away, off Grand Isle, and BP plans to establish them elsewhere along the coast. Meanwhile, the company’s share price, which has fallen steadily since the start of the disaster, took a turn for the worse today, losing 15 percent to $6.13 in early afternoon trading on the London Stock Exchange. That was the lowest level in more than a year. The shares have now lost more than a third of their value, wiping some $63 billion off BP’s value, since the explosion at the Deepwater Horizon oil rig six weeks ago. BP said early today it had spent $990 million so far on fighting and cleaning the spill, with multiple lawsuits

for damages yet to be tallied. Cleanup efforts are being ramped up while BP tries the latest of patchwork fixes, this one the cut-and-cap process. The risky procedure could, at least temporarily, increase the oil flowing from the busted well. Using robot submarines, BP plans to cut away the riser pipe this week and place a cap-like containment valve over the blowout preventer. Live video feeds today showed robot submarines using a circular diamond saw to cut pipes at the bottom of the Gulf.

can Association of Petroleum Geologists, who spent most of his 39 years in the oil industry in offshore exploration. “If they get it on the first three or four shots they’d be very lucky.” The trial-and-error process could take weeks, but it will eventually work, scientists and BP said. Then engineers will then pump mud and cement through pipes to ultimately seal the well. On the slim chance the relief well doesn’t work, scientists weren’t sure exactly how much — or how long — the oil would flow. The gusher would continue until the well bore hole collapsed or pressure in the reservoir dropped to a point where oil was no longer pushed to the surface, said Tad Patzek, chair of the Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering Department at the University of Texas-Austin.

“We are well into the operation to put this cap on the well now,” BP Managing Director Bob Dudley said this morning. BP failed to plug the leak Saturday with its top kill, which shot mud and pieces of rubber into the well but couldn’t beat back the pressure of the oil. The oil company also announced plans Monday to try attaching another pipe to a separate opening on the blowout preventer with some of the same equipment used to pump in mud during the top kill. The company also
wants to build a new freestanding riser to carry oil toward the surface, which would give it more flexibility to disconnect and then reconnect containment pipes if a hurricane passed through. Neither of those plans would start before mid-June and would supplement the cut-and-cap effort. The spill has already leaked between 20 million and 44 million gallons, according to government estimates. For the relief well to succeed, the bore hole must precisely intersect the damaged well, which experts have compared to hitting a target the size of a dinner plate more than two miles into the earth. If it misses, BP will have to back up its drill, plug the hole it just created, and try again. “The probability of them hitting it on the very first shot is virtually nil,” said David Rensink, incoming president of the Ameri-

South America who make up the orchestra travel by highway, and had their meals and hotel nights donated by local casinos. “I called (Superintendent) Dr. (James) Price at about 10 in the morning (on Monday), and he immediately started getting the instruments and stands lined up from Warren Central and Vicksburg high schools,” said Gawronski. Without their barge, the orchestra set up at the far north end of City Front as tug boats slowly idled by on the canal and hundreds of people began setting up lawn chairs in the shade of the trees next to the water. They played to an appreciative crowd for about 90 minutes, closing out with a rendition of The Village People’s “Y.M.C.A.” Shortly after, the sun disappeared behind the tree line. “It’s really something to see the top of the barge open up as we begin to play,” said Ross Erickson of Milwaukee, a percussionist in the orchestra and Indiana University student. “We’re all really sorry that Vicksburg won’t get to see it. It’s frustrating.” The orchestra’s monthlong tour of the Gulf of Mexico and Mississippi River has been frustrating due to the BP oil spill and high river, Erickson said. The Vicksburg show was put together a week ago after the river’s high currents forced the conductor to pull out of a Memorial Day show on the river in Natchez. The orchestra will cut the tour a few shows short after playing in Memphis later this week. Gawronski said he was busy
helping the orchestra bus find a place to get a flat fixed this morning, while Smith Towing Company was at the river to meet the barge and help it to the orchestra’s Memphis gig. “We knew how much the people of Vicksburg have done to bring us here on short notice, and we knew we just had to do whatever it took to play this show,” Erickson said. The Mississippi River measured 42.4 feet this morning, a fall of 0.2 feet. It topped out here last week at 42.8 feet — just below flood stage of 43 feet at the city — and is on a slow retreat. The American Wind Symphony Orchestra is in its 53rd season. Its founder and conductor, 83-yearold Robert Austin Boudreau auditions students for the summer concert series from colleges around the country each year and presents the barge shows from rivers across the country. It was the first show the orchestra had played in Vicksburg since the 1960s. “After the show, everyone was urging me to get them to come back next year, but they’ll be on some other river,” Gawronski said. “This was really a once-ina-lifetime opportunity, and it was great to see this community pull together to make it a success despite all the challenges.” Monday’s evening concert was the culmination of Memorial Day activities in the city. Veterans organizations paraded through downtown and later placed a wreath at the National Cemetery in the Vicksburg National Military Park.
penters Union Hall and at the Elks Lodge precinct, usually places where early-bird voters come out for every election. None had showed up by about 7:45 a.m. at either U.S. 61 South precinct. “It just wasn’t publicized enough,” Kathy Osborn said, waiting for the day’s first voters at the hall, home of the Jett precinct. “Usually, there’s a few people who come early before they do anything else,” Elks manager Carolyn Dedmond said, also awaiting the first ballot. The three primary candidates have run for office previously. Cook, 51, a Jackson middle school teacher, lost to Thompson in the 2008 general election. Marcy, 64, a Meridian resident and former Chicago police officer, ran
unsuccessfully the past two years for state House and Senate seats and for mayor in his east Mississippi hometown. Bailey, 65, a Texas-born minister who lives in Clinton, ran for the GOP nod for governor in New Mexico in 2006. The district covers all or part of 23 counties, from Tunica to Jefferson along the Mississippi River. It also includes most of Jackson and stretches to Attala County on its eastern boundary. Registered voters in Warren County total 30,306 heading into today’s primary, a drop of 18 percent since 2008. Statewide registration stood at just more than 1.8 million, a 5 percent drop since the most recent presidential election cycle. Circuit Court judges M.
James Chaney and Isadore Patrick and Chancellor Vicki Roach Barnes drew no opposition and are uncontested for election in November. Warren County voters will have one contested judicial race on the November ballot, State Court of Appeals District 2. Incumbent Judge Tyree Irving faces Vicksburg attorney Ceola James. Voters are also casting primary ballots in Mississippi’s three other congressional districts today. Most closely watched is District 1 where three Republicans are vying to face one-term incumbent Democrat Travis Childers and several independent and minor party candidates in November.

Supreme Court: Suspects must say they want to remain silent WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court ruled today that suspects must explicitly tell police they want to be silent to invoke Miranda protections during criminal interrogations, a decision one dissenting justice said turns defendants’ rights “upside down.” A right to remain silent and a right to a lawyer are the first of the Miranda rights warnings, which police recite to suspects during arrests and
The ruling comes in a case where a suspect, Van Chester Thompkins, remained mostly silent for a three-hour police interrogation before implicating himself in a Jan. 10, 2000, murder in Southfield, Mich interrogations. But the justices said in a 5-4 decision that suspects must tell police they are going to remain silent to stop an interrogation, just as they must tell police that they want a lawyer. The ruling comes in a case
where a suspect, Van Chester Thompkins, remained mostly silent for a three-hour police interrogation before implicating himself in a Jan. 10, 2000, murder in Southfield, Mich. He appealed his conviction, saying that he invoked his
Miranda right to remain silent by remaining silent. But Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing the decision for the court’s conservatives, said that wasn’t enough. “Thompkins did not say that he wanted to remain silent or that he did not want to talk to police,” Kennedy said. In other action, the court: • Refused to hear an Ohio man’s arguments that he will be wrongfully executed for fatally shooting three people.
The high court today refused to hear Kevin Keith’s appeal. Keith is scheduled to be executed in September. Keith’s lawyers wanted justices to review the evidence in the killing of three people in a 1994 shooting in northern Ohio. • Rejected an appeal from a federal death row inmate who said his death sentence should have been thrown out because of a juror’s misconduct. The justices did not com-
ment in turning down Brandon Basham, who was sentenced to death for kidnapping and killing 44-year-old Alice Donovan in 2002. The foreman on Basham’s jury was held in contempt of court by the trial judge after it was learned that she called five news organizations and made 71 other calls to two fellow jurors, despite repeated warnings from the judge to refrain from discussing the case with anyone.
Al-Qaida: No. 3 official killed A Salute to WASHINGTON — AlQaida announced Monday that its No. 3 official, Mustafa alYazid, had been killed along with members of his family — perhaps one Mustafa of the most al-Yazid severe blows to the terror movement since the U.S. campaign against al-Qaida began. A U.S. official said alYazid was believed to have died in a U.S. missile strike. A statement posted on an al-Qaida Website said alYazid, whom it described as the organization’s top commander in Afghanistan, was killed along with his wife, three daughters, a grandchild and other men, women
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS and children but did not say how or where. The statement did not give an exact date for al-Yazid’s death, but it was dated by the Islamic calendar month of “Jemadi al-Akhar,” which falls in May.
Fort Hood suspect appears in court FORT HOOD, Texas — The Army psychiatrist accused of opening fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 and wounding dozens more, made his first military courtroom appearance Tuesday as his attorney sought to delay the case. Neither Maj. Nidal Hasan nor any witnesses were expected to speak during the
hearing, at which military prosecutors and defense attorneys planned to discuss case preparations and Maj. Nidal other basic Hasan matters. Defense attorney John Galligan said he would seek to delay Hasan’s Article 32 hearing, which is similar to a civilian grand jury proceeding in which a judge hears witness testimony to determine whether the case should go to trial. No date has been set, but authorities have said the trial could be held as early as July 1. Galligan said the Article 32 hearing should not proceed before Oct. 1 because he still needs key documents.

William E. Johnston, M.D. Family Medicine - General Practice Mission Primary Care Clinic What causes earaches? Answer: A tube called the eustachian (say: “youstay-shun”) tube connects the middle ear with the back of the nose. Normally this tube lets fluid drain out of the middle ear. If bacteria or viruses infect the lining of your child’s eustachian tube, the tube gets swollen and fills with thick mucus. This keeps fluid in the ear from draining normally. Bacteria can grow in the fluid, increasing pressure behind the eardrum and causing pain. The eustachian tubes can become blocked because of allergies, a cold or other infection. In other cases, the adenoids (glands near the ear) become enlarged and block the eustachian tubes. Acute ear infections usually clear up within one or two weeks. Sometimes, ear infections last longer and become chronic. After an infection, fluid may stay in the middle ear. This may lead to more infections and hearing loss.
Michael Jones, R.Ph. Helping Hands Pharmacy What can I use to treat a really bad sunburn? Answer: Products you can use include over-thecounter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen for pain; these may also help with fever. For children under age 18 years, acetaminophen is preferred, but you also can give ibuprofen. Aloe vera is the most commonly used topical gel for sunburn relief because it helps soothe the skin. Gels that combine aloe vera with a topical anesthetic such as benzocaine or lidocaine are also available. Many doctors also suggest using a moisturizing lotion such as Eucerin® or Aquaphor® to help keep the skin moist. If the burn is severe enough, your doctor may prescribe oral steroids such as prednisone to help stop inflammation. Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) cream is a prescription drug commonly used to treat second- or third-degree burns, and also may be used for severe sunburns. What not to do: Do not use petroleum jelly – or products containing petrolatum – or butter on the sunburn. These can worsen symptoms, and slow or prevent the healing process.
Dr. Paul D. Murry Chiropractic Physician River City Chiropractic Clinic, LLC Why is there a popping sound when a joint is adjusted?
Answer: Adjustment of a joint may result in release of a gas bubble between the joints that makes a popping sound – it’s exactly the same as when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint that results in gas bubbles being released. There is no pain involved.

Should I stop taking blood thinner medication prior to seeing my dentist?
What is my best chance to stop smoking?
Answer: Do not stop taking your blood thinner without consulting your physician first. Advise your dentist that you are taking these medications so precautions can be taken. Your physician may advise you to stop taking your blood thinner prior to dental treatment to help minimize bleeding. Normally your dentist should consult with the physician for specific instructions concerning this.
Answer: You'll have the best chance of stopping if you do the following: get ready, get support and encouragement, learn how to handle stress and the urge to smoke, get medication and use it correctly, be prepared for relapse and keep trying. Set a stop date 2 to 4 weeks from now so you'll have time to get ready. Write down your personal reasons for stopping. Be specific. Keep your list with you so you can look at it when you feel the urge to smoke. Just before your stop date, get rid of all of your cigarettes, matches, lighters and ashtrays. Prescription medicines such as bupropion SR (one brand name: Zyban) and varenicline (brand name: Chantix) helps some people stop smoking. Talk to your doctor about which of these products is likely to give you the best chance of success. It's very important that you don't smoke while using nicotine replacement products.

Strasburg will make MLB debut
HOUSTON (AP) — Stephen Strasburg is ready — and so is the Washington Nationals’ ticket office. The Nationals said after Monday’s 14-4 win over Houston that their prized pitching prospect will make his major league debut against Pittsburgh on June 8 at Nationals Park. The 21-year-old righthander is first scheduled to start for Triple-A Syracuse at Buffalo on Thursday. General manager Mike Rizzo told mlb.com that Strasburg will throw six innings, or 95 pitches. Rizzo told the website that he, pitching coordinator Spin Williams and pitching coach Steve McCatty mapped out a specific plan for Strasburg at spring training. “We believe he is ready to go,” Rizzo said. “We like that Stephen could bounce back from tough outings.” The Nationals, 24th in the majors in attendance, wasted no time promoting the date. They sent out an e-mail to fans titled “Breaking News” and announcing a “New Era 4-game flex plan” tied to Strasburg’s arrival. They also noted the “expected large crowds” for the June 8 game and encouraged fans to buy their tickets in advance. Strasburg, the No. 1 pick in last year’s draft, is 3-1 with a 1.27 ERA in five Triple-A starts. In 10 minor league starts, including five with Double-A Harrisburg, Strasburg is 6-2 with a 1.43 ERA, with 60 strikeouts in 501⁄3 innings. Strasburg signed a record $15.1 million, four-year contract with the Nationals.

OXFORD — Ole Miss will get another shot at Virginia if it successfully handles its shot at a Big East opponent first. On the road to begin the NCAATournament for only the second time in seven years, the Rebels saw their school’s name called early in Monday’s tournament selection show. They’re headed to Charlottesville, Va., as a No. 2 seed and will face No. 3 seed St. John’s. Virginia, the No. 1 seed in the regional and No. 5 national seed, opens play against No. 4 seed Virginia Commonwealth Friday at 3 p.m. Ole Miss and St. John’s follow at 7 p.m. Virginia went through Ole Miss to advance to the College World Series last season, defeating the Rebels 2-1 in the Oxford Super Regional. The Cavaliers (4711) went 23-7 in the ACC regular season and won twice in their pool in the conference tournament. As one of eight national seeds, Virginia is guaranteed home field advantage until the CWS. “Sweet revenge is the first thing that comes to mind,” Ole Miss third baseman Zach Miller said. “If we compete and leave everything on the field, we have a chance to win. Last year we had them on the ropes, but couldn’t knock them out. There will be a little fire to get us going.” Ole Miss pitcher Drew Pomeranz: “Obviously, Virginia put us out last year. It will be interesting to see how the games go this year.” The Charlottesville Regional winner matches up with the Norman, Okla., Regional winner in the super regional round. The Rebels are 38-22 following a 2-2 performance in the SEC Tournament. They were five outs from Omaha last year with a 3-2 lead in the eighth inning in Game 2 when a throwing error gave Virginia new life. The Cavaliers rallied to win 4-3 and won 5-2 in the decisive game. Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco is glad for any additional motivation, “but we’re not playing Virginia,” See Ole Miss, Page B3.

HATTIESBURG — When the Southern Miss baseball team watched last year’s selection show for the NCAA Tournament, the players were an extremely tense bunch with an uncertain future. Thanks to an automatic bid following a Conference USA Tournament title win on Saturday, the Golden Eagles were a loose group on Monday and ready to face the next challenge. The task ahead for USM involves a trip to the NCAA Regional in Auburn, Ala., as a No. 3 seed. This marks the Eagles’ eighth straight trip to a regional. The Golden Eagles are joined by No. 1 Auburn, No. 2 Clemson and No. 4 Jacksonville State. “I like the closeness of it with the ability of our fan base to travel and support us,” USM coach Scott Berry said. “I think it’s going to be a win-win situation for us. It’s obviously going to be a win for Auburn with the NCAA placing us there.” USM’s first game will be at 2 p.m. Friday against Clemson at Plainsman Park. The host Auburn Tigers will play the second game of the day against Jacksonville State at 6 p.m. Southern Miss went on what was often described as a fairy tale run during its trip to the College World Series last year, shocking the traditional powers of Georgia Tech and Florida.

Braves take division lead By The Associated Press ATLANTA — Chipper Jones knows the Philadelphia Phillies’ lineup is too potent to stay quiet for long. “At some point they’re going to break out of it,” he said. “You just hope it’s not against you. We’ve been fortunate.” The Braves capitalized on another punchless Phillies’ effort to move into first place in the NL East with a 9-3 victory Monday. Jones and Troy Glaus homered to back a strong start by Tommy Hanson. The Braves, winners of six straight, are one-half game ahead of Philadelphia, which has dropped two straight and nine of 13. “Frustrated? Yes, we’re frustrated,” said Phillies left fielder Raul Ibanez, who had one of three RBI doubles in the seventh. “But we’re not down. This is a team of guys
mlb that are going to fight and scratch and claw.” Improving to 16-4 since May 10, the Braves have made up 71⁄2 games in the NL East since May 17, when they were in last place. Atlanta hasn’t held first place in the NL East this late in a season since they won the last of 14 straight division titles in 2005. Philadelphia, which was shut out in five of its previous eight games, had just three hits off Hanson (5-3) before the right-hander left with two outs in the seventh. Lowering his ERA 28 points to 3.78, Hanson struck out two and did not allow a walk after issuing three in the first two innings. The right-hander benefited from double plays that ended scoring threats in the first and second.
“Those were huge,” Hanson said. “They set our defense, and I started hitting my spots and throwing a little more strikes.” Atlanta took a 3-0 lead in the first on Jones’ third homer, a two-run shot, and Eric Hinske’s RBI single. In the third, the Braves went up 6-0 on an RBI by Hinske and Yunel Escobar’s two-run double. Glaus’ eighth homer, a three-run shot in the seventh off reliever Chad Durbin, made it 9-3. Joe Blanton (1-4) lost his second straight start after giving up eight hits, six runs — four earned — and one walk with two strikeouts. Fielding errors by right fielder Ross Gload in the first and first baseman Ryan Howard in the third led to two unearned runs. See Braves, Page B3.

Baseball Nowak helps Biscuits spoils M-Braves’ return The Mississippi Braves returned home from a five-game road trip Monday, but Chris Nowak spoiled the party. Nowak hit two home runs and had five RBIs to lead the Montgomery Biscuits to an 8-4 win. Nowak hit a two-run homer in the first inning and a three-run shot in the seventh. His second home run made it 8-2 and put the game out of reach. Eric Duncan went 5-for-5 with two RBIs for the M-Braves, but the rest of the lineup only managed two hits. Five Montgomery pitchers, none of whom went more than 2 2/3 innings, held the Braves in check. Reliever Rayner Oliveros (2-4), the second pitcher of the night, earned the victory. Scott Diamond (2-4) lasted six innings and allowed five runs for the M-Braves. Game two of the five-game series is tonight at 7:05 at Trustmark Park.
Basketball Howard wavering on playing for USA ORLANDO, Fla. — Dwight Howard might not play for the U.S. at this summer’s world championships. Orlando’s All-Star center and the NBA’s two-time defensive player of the year said he hasn’t decided if he will play. It was the first time Howard has publicly wavered about playing in this summer’s world championships. He had stayed firm on his commitment all season even as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and other stars expressed doubts about playing because of impending free agency. Howard said Monday he will let USA Basketball know of his intentions “soon.” Howard played for the U.S. when it won gold in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He also won a bronze medal in the 2006 world championships.
Tennis Upsets abound at French Open PARIS — Elena Dementieva has advanced to the semifinals at the French Open by rallying past fellow Russian Nadia Petrova, 2-6, 6-2, 6-0 today. The showing is Dementieva’s best at Roland Garros since 2004, when she was runner-up. She pulled away by hitting 11 winners in the final set, when Petrova won only 12 points. Dementieva beat Petrova for the fifth time in a row. Her opponent Thursday will be Francesca Schiavone, who upset No. 3-seeded Caroline Wozniacki 6-2, 6-3. Schiavone became the first Italian woman to reach the semifinals since 1954. In the quarterfinals Wednesday, No. 1 Serena Williams will play No. 7 Sam Stosur, fresh off an upset over four-time champion Justine Henin 2-6, 6-1, 6-4. That ended Henin’s streak of 24 consecutive victories at Roland Garros since her most recent defeat in 2004.

Blackhawks take 2-0 lead in Stanley Cup CHICAGO (AP) — Antti Niemi’s expression seldom changes and his demeanor is a constant. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if he’s let in five goals, made a series of stellar saves or helped his team get within two wins of capturing the Stanley Cup. The Chicago Blackhawks are just glad he’s in goal. The 26-year-old from Finland, who once drove a Zamboni to help pay the bills, is playing in his first NHL postseason and is seemingly not phased by where he’s landed. “Maybe it’s better he has no experience,” teammate Ben Eager said. “We’re really confident when he’s in net.” Niemi had 14 of his 32 saves in the final period Monday night, preserving the Blackhawks’ 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers for a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup finals. The series shifts to the Wachovia Center for Games 3 and 4 on Wednesday and Friday. It was Niemi’s last-period performance that really brought the raucous crowd of 22,275 to its feet when the puck finally slid down the ice and the Flyers couldn’t score in the final 1:44 after pulling goalie Michael Leighton for an extra attacker. They chanted Niemi’s name and nearly drowned out an on-ice interview. “It’s unbelievable feeling how the people react,” Niemi said. “Defense was the key.” After a wild opener won

nhl by the Blackhawks 6-5 when Niemi did indeed give up five goals, the teams tightened up on defense and played a testy and chippy game. Chicago broke a scoreless tie when Marian Hossa and Ben Eager scored 28 seconds apart late in the second period. And after the Flyers got a power-play goal from Simon Gagne early in the third,
Niemi withstood a furious late flurry from the Flyers to preserve Chicago’s seventh straight win. “I don’t think we tested him very much,” Flyers right wing Danny Briere said. “I thought we made him look good with outside shots way too often. I thought he played well in the third period, but we didn’t create much traffic. We didn’t have many quality chances. We have to do a better job
there.” Niemi is 14-4 in the playoffs. Monday night’s win was one of his toughest, especially with the Flyers peppering him late. And throughout these playoffs, he’s had ability to follow a bad game with a good one, just as he did in Game 2. “It’s a great thing that it’s been that way. I want to keep it that way later, too,” he said. “But maybe it comes out of how I feel after the bad game or game allowing five or four goals. I don’t know how it happens.” Patrick Sharp fired a shot from the left circle, and after Leighton stopped it and with Chicago’s Troy Brouwer battling for the puck, Hossa poked it in from the left side with 2:51 left in the second. Hossa, in his third straight Stanley Cup finals with a different team, got his third goal of the playoffs and first since May 5 against Vancouver in the conference semifinals. “It bugged me definitely,” Hossa said of his goal drought. “I tried not to get frustrated but I was waiting for something. Like I said, a garbage goal.” Just 28 seconds later with the crowd still abuzz, Dustin Byfuglien made a steal and passed the puck to fourthliner Eager. Eager skated to the right circle and unleashed a shot that beat Leighton high on the glove side to make it 2-0.
Pierce braces for physical finals WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) — Paul Pierce is excited to return to the NBA finals and his hometown for the next round in the league’s greatest rivalry. Boston’s best player isn’t exactly thrilled that Los Angeles’ welcoming committee includes Ron Artest, a physical, tenacious defender. “He likes to bang you,” Pierce said Monday, “grab you, hold you, pull your shorts down. He’s going to try anything.” The NBA’s past two champions will go for another title beginning Thursday night when the Celtics face the Lakers in front of an array of Hollywood stars and, very likely, a large number of Pierce’s friends and family who will root against their local team. Boston’s captain cherishes that support, though it comes with a price. “It’s always special just to be a part of the finals,” he said a few hours before the Celtics boarded a plane for their cross-country trip. “To do it in a place where I grew up, it makes it even more special. The only negative thing about it is tickets for me. I mean, it’s going to be pretty expensive.” That was a small inconvenience two years ago when Pierce won his first NBA title in 10 seasons as the Celtics beat the Lakers in six games. Boston clinched it with a 131-92 win at home for its ninth championship in 11 finals matchups

But Artest didn’t join the Lakers until last July. Pierce averaged 18.3 points per game in the regular season, and 19.1 over the first three rounds in the postseason. He averaged 24.3 in the Eastern Conference finals against the Orlando Magic, collecting 31 points and 13
rebounds in the clincher. But he scored just 13 points per game as Boston and Los Angeles split their two-game season series. “I matched up with him the last 10, 11 years. He’s one of the best defenders I’ve ever played against,” Pierce said of Artest. “He’ll try anything just to try to get into his oppo-
nent’s head. But I think just from playing against him over the years I’ve become used to the things that he tries to do and I just try to go out there and play my game, not really get into the antics with him.” Artest relieves Kobe Bryant of the burden of defending the opponent’s best scorer, allowing the Lakers star to focus more on his own offense. Artest “makes a difference,” Boston coach Doc Rivers said. “He’s been perfect because it’s allowed Kobe not to have to guard the best player every night. ... You can see it in Kobe’s (offensive numbers). He’s as fresh as I’ve ever seen him in the playoffs, and I think it’s due to Ron Artest.” Bryant scored 37 points in Saturday night’s 111-103 win over the Phoenix Suns that put the Lakers in the finals, his 10th 30-point playoff game in his last 11. Artest also can be an offensive threat. He hit the winning layup at the buzzer in Game 5 then scored 25 points to help the Lakers clinch the Western Conference finals in Game 6 in Phoenix. Artest and his teammates will play before a friendly crowd Thursday that will include a small pocket of Pierce partisans. “My friends,” Pierce said, “really grew up (as) L.A. fans and, all of a sudden, are Celtic fans because of me. So it’s a little weird for them and family.”
USM Continued from Page B1. a Cinderella right now,” designated hitter Adam Doleac said. “We feel comfortable in the postseason and we continue to be confident. I can’t imagine Auburn is too excited to have us in their regional.” Auburn and Clemson are two programs that have been ranked in the top 25 for much of the season, but the Golden Eagles don’t appear to be intimidated by any opponent after beating Rice on Saturday to win the Conference USA tournament title. USM doesn’t have much familiarity with the three other teams in the Regional, last playing Auburn in 1997 and meeting Jacksonville State in 2006 in the Tuscaloosa, Ala., Regional. “Rex Hudler, the color guy for (CBS College Sports), asked me ‘Do you feel like the underdog?”’ Berry said. “I said, ‘No, I don’t feel like we’re the underdog at all.’ “Our program has got to a
point where we’re supposed to be there. That’s what I felt like. Our guys were loose and ready to play (against Rice). We’ve had several guys in our program that are used to that stage and it showed that night at Rice.” Doleac said the Eagles are starting to resemble last year’s CWS team after a 17-5 record over the final 22 games of the regular season. “Our confidence level has turned around and it actually started a little earlier than last year,” Doleac said. “It was probably 20 games ago. Ever since then, our confidence has stayed up and we’ve continued to play well. Now we’re in the postseason and I think I speak for the rest of the team, we feel more comfortable in the postseason after last year. We’ll continue to ride that confidence and ride it out for the rest of the year.”
Ole Miss Continued from Page B1. he said. “We’re playing St. John’s, and they just beat a national seed.” Indeed, the Red Storm (4018, 16-11 Big East regular season) defeated Louisville, the No. 7 national seed, twice en route to the Big East tournament championship. St. John’s was 12-15 in true road games but 7-0 at neutral sites. The Red Storm is hitting .327 as a team and the pitching staff has a 5.05 earned run average.
There was no loud cheer among Ole Miss players when the Charlottesville bracket was placed on the screen, just a murmur with memories of the end of 2009 still fresh. “We thought we might go to Georgia Tech or Oklahoma, maybe California,” Pomeranz said. “You never know how these things are going to work out.”
Braves Continued from Page B1. “It just seems that everything that can go wrong does.” Blanton said. “We know we’re a good team.” The Phillies began the game as the first club since the 1992 Chicago Cubs to get shut out five times over an eight-game span, according to the team. Philadelphia, which won the 2008 World Series and a second straight NL title in 2009, also is struggling defensively with 12 errors in the last nine games. With his offense slumping, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel changed the batting order with Gload leading off, Greg Dobbs in the No. 2 spot and Shane Victorino hitting
fifth. They went a combined 0 for 8. The Phillies were without third baseman Placido Polanco, who has a .329 average in 216 career at-bats against Atlanta, and right fielder Jayson Werth, who was given the day off despite a .341 career average with three homers and 12 RBIs in 128 career plate appearances at Turner Field. Manuel was ejected in the third for arguing that a call by home plate umpire Larry Vanover shouldn’t have been overturned by the umpiring crew. “The game is a game of momentum,” Manuel said. “I think everybody knows that.”

FIU’s Wittels just four games shy of record MIAMI (AP) — When the NCAA Tournament begins this weekend, the Coral Gables Regional will be streak central. Miami will be in the national field for the 38th consecutive year, extending its record. And Florida International’s Garrett Wittels — with his 54-game hitting streak, now four shy of matching Robin Ventura’s Division I record — is making the short trip there as well. FIU was sent Monday to Coral Gables for the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament. The third-seeded Golden Panthers (36-23) will face second-seeded Texas A&M (40-19-1) on Friday, and top-seeded Miami (40-17) meets fourth-seeded Dartmouth (26-17). “When we have a chance to put teams in a location
college baseball where they can hop on a bus and avoid the hassles of time zones and whatnot, we try to do that,” NCAA tournament committee chairman Tim Weiser said. Forget the bus. FIU could practically jog back and forth this weekend. The Golden Panthers’ campus is just 8 miles away from Alex Rodriguez Park — the stadium the Hurricanes call home. “Late in the year you’re always matched up with everyone else’s best,” Wittels said. “It’s win or go home basically. I know it’s two-game elimination, but every game really counts.” And there’s a chance FIU and Miami — longtime rivals
— could meet before the weekend is over. The teams played at least once in every season from 1973 through 2008, before deciding not to continue the series in either the 2009 or 2010 regular seasons for a variety of reasons. “I’m glad we are a host and I’m looking forward to this weekend,” said Miami catcher Yasmani Grandal, widely expected to be among the first picks in this year’s major league draft. “We need to take full advantage of the opportunity we have of playing in front of our fans at our home park.” For its part, Miami is thinking more about Dartmouth, not FIU, since it’s no guarantee the neighbors will play each other. “We need to build a good game plan around all three
teams,” Grandal said. Miami leads the all-time series 91-24, but FIU won the last game the schools played in 2008. The Golden Panthers have been coached the last two seasons by Turtle Thomas, a former member of Jim Morris’ staff at Miami. Thomas was at Miami from 1988 through 1999, helping the Hurricanes reach the College World Series nine times in those 12 years. Thomas didn’t mind the nearby regional, of course. FIU secured an automatic berth in the field by winning the Sun Belt Conference tournament in Murfreesboro, Tenn., on Sunday. “We knew we were going to be on the road, no question about it and no matter where you play, you are on the road,” Thomas said.

Bourgeois, 98, had continued creating artwork — her latest pieces were finished just last week — before suffering a heart attack Saturday night, said the studio director, Wendy Williams. The artist died at Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan, where she lived. Chris Haney — A co-creator of the popular Trivial Pursuit board game died Monday at 59. Scott Abbott, who created Trivial Pursuit with Haney, said Haney died in a Toronto hospital after a long illness. Haney worked for The Canadian Press and the Montreal Gazette newspaper as a photo editor before going into the board game business. He teamed up with Abbott, a Canadian Press sports reporter, in 1979 to invent Trivial Pursuit. Abbott said he and Haney always had a “blind faith” that the game would be successful if it got to market, but they had no idea just how wildly successful it would become. Released in 1982, it took off after a slow start and the duo sold the rights to toy giant Hasbro in 2008 for US$80 million. Haney is survived by his wife, as well as his first wife, and three grown children.
Dion pregnant again — with twins Celine Dion’s struggle to have one more baby has more than paid off. She’s pregnant with two. Publicist Kim Jakwerth said in an e-mail Sunday that the 42-year-old Canadian songstress is 14 weeks pregnant with twins, and she plans to find out the sex of the babies next month. Dion and her husband and manager Rene Angelil have one son, 9-year-old Rene Charles. She had undergone several rounds of in-vitro fertilization in an attempt to get pregnant again. Celine The pregnancy was first reported by People Dion Magazine. Dion is working on new albums in English and French, and returns next year to Las Vegas for a three-year residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
Ferguson said she had been drinking Sarah Ferguson says she had been drinking and was “not in my right place” when she was caught on video offering access to her former husband, Prince Andrew, for $724,000. The Duchess of York made the comments to talk show host Oprah Winfrey in an interview to be shown today at 4 on CBS. The interview was taped Friday in Los Angeles, and excerpts were Sarah released Monday by Winfrey’s Harpo ProducFerguson tions. Ferguson tells Winfrey that she’d seen snippets of the video in airports but had not “faced the devil in the face” by watching it in its entirety. But she said she could tell she’d been drinking and was “in the gutter at that moment.”
Fans gather to remember Dio The mammoth service for fiery frontman Ronnie James Dio was more akin to a spirited rock concert than a dreary funeral. With chants of “Dio, Dio, Dio,” headbangers were loud and proud Sunday as they paid tribute to the late metal legend, who died from stomach cancer May 16 at age 67. More than 1,200 fans commemorated Dio inside Forest Lawn Memorial Park’s Hall of Liberty. Hundreds more gathered in the scorching heat outside the auditorium to watch monitors of the proceedings, which featured performances from some of Dio’s rocker friends, including Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple, Geoff Tate of Queensryche and Paul Shortino of Quiet Riot.

2 born in same place, same day to wed An engaged eastern Pennsylvania couple were born on the same day in the same hospital — and their mothers even shared a room in the maternity ward. Amy Singley and Steven Smith were born at St. Luke’s Hospital in Fountain Hill on April 17, 1986. After the mothers were hospital roommates, the two families continued to interact through their church in Easton. Smith asked Singley on a date to the movies when they were sophomores in high school. Singley said she knew Smith was the right guy for her after their second date. The wedding date is June 12.

Inside the White House
‘West Wing Week’ videos not quite viral WASHINGTON (AP) — Moments before Elena Kagan is introduced to the nation as President Barack Obama’s choice for the Supreme Court, the president turns to her and offers a mock-helpful suggestion: “Just don’t trip. That’ll be really embarrassing.” Kagan chuckles and shoots back playfully, “It’s very nice of you to say that.” It’s a small moment, recorded for history in a recent edition of “West Wing Week,” a video diary of presidential doings that the White House posts each week on its website, Facebook, YouTube and elsewhere. Now entering their third month, the 6- to 8-minute-long videos are promoted as “your guide to everything that’s happening at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.” That’s a stretch. But they do serve as a chronological stroll through Obama’s week, and roll in snippets of behind-thescenes action at the White House and oddball bits of humor. Obama spokesman Josh Earnest, who narrates the videos, said they help fill “the president’s commitment to ensure his White House is the most transparent in history.” The view from outside is mixed: There is praise for another smart use of new media — and criticism of the end result as awkward and ineffective. Kathleen Jamieson, an authority on political communications at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Center, said the videos allow the White House to give the impression of openness. But Jamieson said the finished product comes off as “amateur video,” most useful to a high-schooler who has to write a term paper about what the president does in a typical week. Yet GOP strategist David All, who is organizing a fall conference on the Internet’s role in activism, media and politics, thinks the videos are both entertaining and effective. The videos may contain a lot of fluff, he said, “but for the most part it can be useful for

White House videographer Arun Chaudhary walks on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington. the president.” They blend backstage color and humor with standard political messages and information about Obama’s activities, he said. They also could be a valuable historical record of Obama’s presidency, All said. The videos often begin with some sort of offbeat message from a government official. One week, Energy Secretary Steven Chu, a Nobel Prizewinning physicist, tells viewers: “Joining the discussion on my Facebook page is no substitute for a PhD in physics. However, it’s a lot faster and cheaper.” Last week, Small Business Administrator Karen Mills highlighted Small Business Week events, then added: “Let’s make every week Small Business Week — except for Shark Week. We don’t want to mess with that.” From there, the videos march, day by day, through
Koppel’s son, 40, found dead in NYC apartment NEW YORK (AP) — The 40-year-old son of former ABC anchor Ted Koppel has been found dead in an Upper Manhattan apartment, police said today. Andrew Koppel was declared dead at around 1:30 a.m. Monday in the Washington Heights apartment, Detective John Sweeney said. A medical examiner would determine the cause of death. Koppel worked for the law department at the city Housing Authority, the agency said today. They would make no other comment. The Queens resident was one of Ted Koppel’s four children. Ted Koppel was the longtime anchor of ABC’s news show “Nightline.” A call to his publicist was not immediately returned today. Andrew Koppel was convicted on a misdemeanor assault charge in 1994 for striking a U.S. Senate aide during an argument at a Capitol Hill automatic teller machine. At the time, he was a student at Georgetown Law School.

Koppel had been drinking for hours with a man he met at a bar, the New York Post reported today. “He had a Ted straw hat on, Koppel and I had one on, and he said, ‘Nice hat, man,”’ the drinking partner, Russell Wimberly, told the newspaper. “We got to talking, and he started buying me drinks.” Wimberly said Koppel drank whiskey, and neither man had anything to eat all day.
the president’s week, with clips of public events and private conversation. As Obama gets last-minute instructions before a state visit by Mexican President Felipe Calderon, he jokes with his wife about who should stand where, then adds, “I’ve only been briefed like eight times on this.” The videos often end with a light moment, and the first one gave a small nod to the creator of the weekly series. As Obama is seen striding into the White House, he asks an unseen cameraman, “Arun, why are you filming me now?” That would be White House videographer Arun Chaudhary. He said in an e-mail he got the idea to do “West Wing Week” because he had “lots of interesting clips that couldn’t really stand on their own but did when collected together.”
Mexico judge OKs arrest in death of producer’s wife CANCUN, Mexico (AP) — A judge in Mexico issued an arrest warrant Monday for a former “Survivor” producer suspected in the killing of his wife while on vacation with their children at a Cancun resort, the state attorney general said. Francisco Alor, the state attorney general in Quintana Roo state, said prosecuBruce tors would iniBeresford-Redman tiate extradition proceedings soon seeking to return TV producer Bruce Beresford-Redman from the United States. Prosecutors will seek “international collaboration” in the return of Beresford-Redman once they have officially confirmed his whereabouts, Alor said. Beresford-Redman has denied any involvement in the death last month of his wife, Monica Beresford-Redman. Police detained the husband briefly and then released him after confiscating his passport and telling him not to leave Mexico. But Beresford-Redman returned to Southern California and stated in court documents there that he had been living with his two children for more than a week.

Early exit from wedding dinner draws fire from mother-in-law DEAR ABBY ABIGAIL
South Carolina Dear Lost My Appetite: Let me put it this way — your mother-in-law has a point. Because the music was so loud that you were uncomfortable, you should have asked your hosts to instruct the DJ to lower the volume somewhat. It would have been preferable to walking out. Dear Abby: I’m the supervisor of a small office. One of my biggest challenges is scheduling time off for the female employees. In my day, you
BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Gemini (May 21-June 20) — A nosy acquaintance might try to probe your thinking to uproot what you want kept secret. Don’t let anything slip out needlessly. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Inside information given to you by a well-intentioned friend may not be valid, so don’t act on anything without first checking and corroborating it, especially where money is involved. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — In order for any partnership arrangement to work out, it has to possess harmony of purpose. Don’t team up with anybody whose aims or objectives are not in synch with yours. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — It is always important to size-up people realistically, especially if they could have an effect on your personal welfare. Problems could ensue if your assessments are wishful and illogical. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — The small details are what could get you in trouble with your commercial affairs if you’re not careful. What appears to be an insignificant detail could prove to be a thorn in your side later. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don’t allow another to pressure you into doing something you’d regret or that would put you in a position that you’d be unable to get out of. Make certain that you’re able to make up your own mind. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Properly acknowledge anyone who goes out of his/her way to do something special for you. Ingratitude would leave an impression that would be extremely difficult to erase. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Small expenditures have a way of surprisingly growing into a huge, significant total if you carelessly spend on a whim. Do your best to manage your resources mentally, not emotionally. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Be sure to pay more attention to details. It will be your downfall if you don’t, and are careless about a matter that you are overly anxious to conclude. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — There are certain people around whom we must choose our words more carefully because of their sensitivities, and today you could be with one of them. Be kind and tread carefully. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Avoid pals you know to be penny-pinchers or freeloaders, because it isn’t likely you’ll have the tolerance to put up with any stinginess. Your open-mindedness has its limitations. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Be particularly careful of what you say when in the presence of someone who has an influence over your work or career. Voicing a piece of your mind could be critically evaluated.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’m an avid reader of your column. I went away to a high school in another town. Since your column is not printed in this town’s newspaper, my parents send them to me. In the latest package that I received, I found two particular letters hitting close to home. I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for 16 months. Since I live eight hours from home, we are classified as a “longdistance” relationship. We share a common faith. Awhile ago, we talked about having sex and agreed that we would not because it was against our religion. Recently, however, we (at least I) had been thinking about it more since I will be seeing him soon. However, after giving it a lot of thought, I have once again become sure of my original choice. I have made a list of pros and cons about teen sex and I’d like to share it with your readers. Pros: • We could become closer. Cons: • It could be harder to be apart. • We could lose respect for ourselves. • We could disregard everything that our parents have taught us. • We could disregard everything that the Bible teaches us. • We would lose our virginity. • I’m 16 and he is 17; however, having sex before you are married is wrong no matter what the age. • Since I go to a private Christian school, if it were found out that I was having sex, I would be asked to leave. • If I were to become pregnant, we both would lose any sort of social life and be disgraced. • More than likely we would lose one another, or lose respect for one another. This last comment is based on the two letters that you printed in your column from girls who made the wrong decision. They reported that their relationships were broken off because of sex. — Nameless, Boston. Nameless: Thanks for your thoughts on premarital sex. It will help many teens make the right decision on a major topic of conversation. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.
didn’t take a day off unless you were very sick or your child was sick. Now they seem to want time off for everything from school events, sporting events, getting their nails done, their faces waxed or tanning appointments. I am amazed at the decline in work ethic. As I read about the unemployment in our country, I would think people would be grateful to have a well-paying job with benefits — but the recession hasn’t slowed any of our female employees down one bit. What has happened to the old-fashioned work ethic that founded this country? (Maybe it went south along with the jobs?) And by the way, Abby, I am a female. — Takes My Job Seriously Dear Takes: Most companies give employees time off
for personal business and vacations, as well as time off for their own illnesses or the illness of family members. If they choose to use the time the way you have described, it is their right to do so. However, if they are taking more than the company offers, that could be a problem. While I understand your point, please try to be less judgmental. Dear Abby: My wife and I work and lead busy lives. The dinner table is the only place we can sit together with our son and have a relaxing conversation. My wife, however, goes off and eats by herself saying she can’t wait — even though dinner is almost ready. I have tried telling her I prefer family time, but she brushes me off or becomes angry. Any suggestions? — Hungry for Conversation
Dear Hungry: Yes. If you want family dinners with your wife, you will have to find out — and resolve — what is eating her. Clear the air and you may find her less hungry for solitude. A gentle reminder: Families sitting down and sharing meals together is a practice that is happening less and less, and it’s a shame. Teach-
ers tell me that students who eat with their parents usually earn better grades than those who eat in front of a television set or on the run.

Irregular cycles normal before menopause Dear Dr. Gott: I am a 43-yearold female with irregular periods. When I finally went to my doctor, he told me that I have perimenopause. Can you tell me what this is? Dear Reader: Simply put, perimenopause is an introduction to menopause. It commonly occurs when a woman is in her 40s, but can happen to some women in their mid30s. It generally lasts between two and eight years and is a natural part of the aging process. Estrogen levels rise and fall in an erratic pattern, and women might experience problems sleeping, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood changes and more. Repeated menstrual irregularity, however, is one of the most widely recognized initial phases of the condition. As long as the irregularity isn’t accompanied by extremely heavy bleeding, breakthrough bleeding between cycles, bleeding that lasts longer than eight days and cycles that occur fewer than 21 days apart, you can usually consider things as progressing normally. However, complications outside these guidelines should be brought to your primary-care physician’s or gynecologist’s attention. There are several circumstances that have a bearing on when perimenopause or menopause might begin. Smoking, for example, is known to trigger menopause up to two years earlier than in those without a history. Other signs of an earlier-than-normal occurrence are chemotherapy for childhood cancer, never having delivered a baby, hysterectomy and pelvic radiation therapy. Therapy might include the use of oral contraceptives for the purpose of regulating cycles, and reducing vaginal dryness and hot flashes. A progestin-containing IUD (intrauterine device) might control heavy bleeding, while progestin therapy might regulate cycles. If you are satisfied with the information you already received, I recommend you continue as you are, eat well, exercise, avoid alcohol and caffeine, which can trigger hot flashes, and enjoy each day to the fullest. If you are dissatisfied, either jot down a list of questions and return to your physician for an explanation, or request a second opinion. Dear Dr. Gott: I am considering taking colloidal silver and want your opinion. Is it safe, or is it toxic? Dear Reader: Colloidal silver is touted as a cureall that boosts the immune system and treats a plethora of issues from viruses, cancer, HIV/AIDS, shingles and even prostatitis. There is no scientific evidence to substantiate such claims. It is not an essential mineral. Colloidal silver is made up of tiny silver particles suspended in a liquid. It is available in oral, spray and topical forms. It is known to build up in the tissues of the body over time and most commonly results

in a blue-gray discoloration of the skin, nails, gums, eyes and internal organs. While this isn’t a serious health problem, it is a serious cosmetic problem because the discoloration doesn’t go away even if the supplement is discontinued. My opinion is probably not one you want to hear, but I can’t recommend this product. If you eat a nutritious diet, exercise and get adequate sleep, forgo something so questionable until firm scientific studies prove it is beneficial.

Dear Abby: My mother-inlaw is upset with my wife and me for sneaking out of a wedding reception early (before the dinner was served). There was a long delay between the reception and the dinner, and a DJ was playing loud, deafening rock ’n’ roll music. We were seated near a speaker and it was virtually impossible to carry on a conversation. My wife claimed a major headache to the guests seated at our table, and we discreetly left the reception. My mother-in-law says if you accept the dinner invitation it is bad manners not to eat the dinner because it cost the hosts money. I say, if the reception has intolerable environmental factors inflicted on the guests, leaving early is acceptable. Were we rude to leave as we did? — Lost My Appetite in
