City police targeting teen crime Hopes are high summer ball will keep youths out of trouble By Manivanh Chanprasith email@example.com
With summer here, law enforcement officers plan to go on the offensive, fighting a youth crime rate that nearly doubled in 2009 with new and expanded programs designed to keep teens busy. “I feel like kids are getting the message and some kids we arrested last year are now on probation,” said Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart, head of the investigations. “Last year was a busier year as far as arrests and kinds of arrests.” In 2009, police recorded 663 charges against teens compared to 395 in 2008 and 304 in 2007. Outside the city, the Warren County Sheriff’s Department recorded a steady number of charges at 106, 103 and 119 during the same three years. Getting a grip on muggings, vehicle burglaries and other thefts committed by young people has been identified as a priority for Police Chief Walter Armstrong, appointed to the position 11 months ago. “With the summer programs we are implementing and with increased police officers hired to patrol the streets, and perhaps, with other programs around the community, I anticipate the number to go down,” Armstrong said. From Jan. 1 through May 31 this year, police recorded 221 misdemeanor and felony arrests of juveniles in the city, down slightly from the same six months last year when police had filed 242 charges against people younger than 18. The sheriff’s department is at 37. Some business owners are stepping up their

* Sources: Vicksburg Police Department and Warren County Sheriff’s Department efforts, too. Sam Eljack, manager of Speed Mart at Speed and Washington streets, installed pull-down, metal security guards for the three window- and two door-openings of his store, citing multiple break-ins in the three years he’s been open. “They broke into the store five times in the last six months,” he said, adding that he believes teens are responsible. “This is the only way to
solve it.” Since installing the guards, Eljack said he has not had any problems with break-ins, but loitering is still a problem. “We keep calling the police every two days,” he said. Police have responded to the issue by adding extra patrols in the area, and Eljack said he is appreciative of the effort. In the county, the juvenile arrest rate is not as high as the city’s. U.S. Justice Department figures lag local tallies but
contain alarming numbers. There were 2.11 million juvenile arrests nationwide in 2008 and 2.18 million in 2007. Figures for 2009 were not available, but the federal report said juveniles accounted for 16 percent of all violent crime arrests and 26 percent of all property crime arrests. Armstrong has said up to 75 percent of all local crimes are committed by youthful offenders.
PENSACOLA, Fla. — BP’s top executive acknowledged this morning that the global oil giant was unprepared to fight a catastrophic deepwater oil spill as engineers were forced again to reconfigure plans for executing their latest gambit to control the Gulf of Mexico gusher. BP planned to use giant shears to cut a pipe a mile below the sea after a diamond-tipped saw became stuck halfway through the job, another delay in six weeks of failed efforts to stop or at least curtail the worst oil spill in U.S. history. The government’s point man for the disaster, Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, said this morning the cut would be made later today. Once the riser pipe is cut, BP hopes to cap it and start pumping some crude to a surface tanker, which would reduce but not end the spill. The next chance for stopping the flow won’t come until two relief wells meant to plug the reservoir for good are finished in August, after an effort to staunch the gusher with heavy mud failed Saturday. BP Chief Executive Tony Hayward told The Financial Times it was “an entirely fair criticism” to say the company had not been fully prepared for a deepwater oil leak. Hayward called it a “low-probability, highimpact” accident. “What is undoubtedly true is that we did not have the tools you would want in your tool-kit,” Hayward said in an interview published in today’s edition of the Londonbased newspaper. Also this morning, the White House announced that President Barack Obama will return to the Louisiana Gulf

President Jefferson Davis would be 202 today Today is the birthday of President Jefferson Davis, a Warren County resident who was born in Fairview, Ky., 202 years ago. Davis had an envious military career and was one of the great men in the American political arena, a role that began in Vicksburg on Court Square in 1843 when he made his entry into politics. He lost that election, but he would later serve in Congress, the Senate, the Cabinet and as president of the Confederate States. Davis was the political power behind the establishment of the Smithsonian Institution.
• The following incident occurred about 35 years ago in the Vicksburg National Military Park at the statue of Davis which was authorized and paid for by the federal government. It’s a lighter side of the many stories concerning the Southern statesman. A set of cables held the
huge bronze statue securely as it slowly swung through the air, and the crane operator began to carefully lower it toward the pedestal. “Hold it right there,” Park Superintendent Dan Lee called out, felt in his pocket, and then turned to me. “Got a penny?” Lee asked, and I pulled one from my pocket. I was there to photograph the event for the Vicksburg Evening Post. The statue of the Confederate president had been located at the top of a steep incline with the road curving in front of it. There was no place to park, no place to safely position oneself to take
a picture, so with the blessings of the Davis descendants and the United Daughters of Confederacy, the monument was moved to a better spot. Lee took the penny, stepped forward and placed it on the pedestal, then ordered the crane operator to lower the statue into place. With the Lincoln penny precisely under Davis’ right heel, Lee, who was a Kentuckian as were both Davis and Abraham Lincoln, laughed and said, “Now we’ve got Abe where we’ve always wanted him.” •

No-kill animal shelter in Jackson seeks help to get cash By Pamela Hitchins firstname.lastname@example.org A Jackson animal shelter is hoping to cash in on money not spent on Super Bowl advertising. CARA, the largest no-kill shelter in Mississippi, is one of 1,000 organizations nationwide in the running for the Pepsi Refresh Project, a grant source funded four months ago by the mega-company, which decided instead of buying a Super Bowl ad to empower good-deed-doers. PepsiCo is giving away $1.3 million every month, with four levels of grants available — $5,000, $25,000, $50,000 and $250,000. Categories include health; arts and culture; food
and shelter; the planet; neighborhoods; and education. Projects must be beneficial, achievable, constructive and “shovel-ready” — meaning work can be finished within 12 months of funding. CARA staffers applied for the program May 1, getting their project in line just seconds after midnight. “You have to submit your ideas at the beginning of each month, and only the first 1,000 are accepted,” said CARA board member Anna Marsh Shelby, a Jackson resident and CARA pet owner who works in Vicksburg. The spots are filled just minutes later, but selected organizations don’t know it until the beginning of the following
month. If the shelter wins the Pepsi grant, plans are to replace rusty kennels, purchase new food and water bowls and beds and increase capacity by 10 percent. CARA was started as a rescue group in 2000, and incorporated in March 2001 as Clinton Animal Rescue & Adoption Inc. Over the years the shelter has grown, moved and changed its name, and now occupies a 30,000-squarefoot warehouse on North Flag Chapel Road. In addition to pet adoptions and animal rescues in Hinds, Warren and other Mississippi counties, CARA has placed animals as far away as Maryland and Vermont, Shelby said.

Child injured in bike wreck improves The condition of a 7-yearold city boy injured in a bicycle accident a week ago has been upgraded to good, said Peggy Wagner, spokesman for University Medical Center in Jackson onWednesday. Jaylen Davis, 214 Alfred Drive, was in fair condition after being admitted to UMC May 27 with head and arm injuries. Jaylen, who had just learned to ride, lost control of his bike while riding downhill near his home and hit a metal pole, Vicksburg Sgt. Beverly Prentiss said.

“Their spay and neutering laws are stricter up there,” she said, “and people are not as concerned about adopting a purebred animal.” CARA has tough adoption standards, making sure animals are placed in safe, loving homes committed to all that’s involved in taking care of an animal. Pets available for adoption are listed on CARA’s website with a photo, information about the breed, the animal’s temperament and what type of household is most suitable. CARA is home to an average of 300 dogs and 80 cats and has housed a goat, a pig, rabbits, gerbils and guinea pigs. It is supported entirely by donations and fundraisers.

Marcy, Cook in runoff in Delta district Two felons jailed for counterfeit, weapons, including rocket launcher JACKSON (AP) — Bill Marcy of Meridian and Richard Cook of Byram are headed to a June 22 Republican primary runoff in Mississippi’s 2nd Congressional District.

By Tish Butts email@example.com Two Vicksburg convicted felons were arrested at their home Wednesday after police found nine weapons, including an antitank rocket launcher, officials said. Vicksburg police initially visited the 308 Grange Hall Road home shared by Austin Chance Reid, 25, and Damon Louis White, 28, while investigating a report of counterfeit money passed Tuesday at Kangaroo Express, 4888 U.S. 61 South. The two were taken from the home, charged with possession of counterfeit instruments and nine counts each of possession of a weapon as a felon. As police questioned the two men, “we were granted permission to search,” said Lt. Bobby Stewart, chief of investigations. The rocket launcher was found in a bedroom. Seized were an M72 A3 antitank rocket launcher, three sawed-off shotguns, a .22-caliber Browning handgun with a silencer, a .45-caliber Springfield armory handgun, three knives, an 1856 Enfield black powder six-shot revolver and $2,300 in fake money, Stewart said. The shotguns and silencer are illegal items, but the other weapons may lawfully be owned by non-felons. “You can buy the (rocket launcher) at a gun show. That model has been replaced in the military,” Stewart said. “It’s not against the law to have them.” It was not known why the two had the launcher. Stewart said it had been used, but he did not know if it was by the suspects. They would have to go through a military source to obtain ammunition, Stewart said. The Enfield was “one of the first revolvers ever made,” Stewart said. Stewart said a white 2000 Ford Expedition identified as

Calhoun says Bragg was being sought by local authorities for grand larceny and fled into some woods on May 21 while being taken into custody. He said Bragg apparently ran into the marshy water while running from authorities

Feds must not make bad situation worse A week ago, President Barack Obama held a news conference amid his many comments and staged events since the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. As usual, his words were wellchosen. “I grew up in Hawaii,” Obama said, “where the ocean is sacred. And when you see birds flying around with ... with oil all over their feathers and turtles dying ... this speaks to, you know, how are we caring for this incredible bounty that we have?” To paraphrase: We live in Mississippi, a state blessed with natural bounty, including access to one of the world’s greatest fisheries. Our neighbors in Louisiana, Alabama, Texas and Florida share in this treasure trove and generations have also profited greatly from the natural wealth beneath the sea — an ample supply of oil and gas. The president says he understands our frustration. “These are folks who grew up fishing in these wetlands,”
Obama said, “and, you know, seeing this as an integral part of who they are. And to see that messed up in this fashion would be infuriating.” Quite correct. This incident is infuriating, and not just to the people of Mississippi where oil has reached state waters and beaches. The spill should infuriate all Americans but especially those of us who live at the water’s edge and, as the president said, consider the ocean sacred. The spill — and no one can say how much has spilled or how effective ongoing removal efforts have been — has damaged the seafood industry and threatens to damage coastal wetlands and wildlife for generations. And no one knows for certain how to plug the hole. Wait and see has become an everyday posture. This much we can be sure about: Thousands of wells have operated safely for decades, even adding to habitat and fisheries. But from the moment the floating production rig exploded, it
has seemed the benefits were not worth the risk. For weeks and months, the president and others will continue to make statements. In terms of policy, we advise extreme caution. A horrible catastrophe must not be compounded by rash actions that make bad situations worse for the environment, for the seafood and tourism industries and, yes, for oil and gas production. With the nation still reeling from high unemployment, the federal government must not lose sight of how many individuals and small businesses depend on the resources of the sea. Make decisions based on safety and science, not emotion and — above all — not on political considerations. Even if there’s little the federal government can do to help at this point, there are actions that could make a bad situation worse. The president must demonstrate he realizes this and proceed with caution.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler
BP oil spill reflects the dark side of capitalism “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Too bad British Petroleum (BP) didn’t subscribe to this adage. Not in recent times have those words been more prophetic than now. We are learning the hard way that it really is better to act to prevent a problem than to deal with it in retrospect. Given its history regarding safety issues, it is not surprising that the BP execs don’t have a clue as to how to stop the oil that is gushing into the Gulf of Mexico. They don’t know because they didn’t have an ounce of concern to know. Driven by a profitmaking mentality, they didn’t want to expend the time or money to employ an ounce of prevention. They didn’t have too. So, they didn’t. Surprised? Don’t be. For years, BP has been playing Russian roulette with the environment and the livelihoods of millions of people. Their luck ran out and unfortunately everybody will take the hit for generations
History confirms that when left to their own devices, some business executives will cut corners, cook books, and devise scams.
to come. BP has a well-documented history of fighting against layers of safeguards. As recently as 2005, the company pleaded guilty to federal felony charges when a massive explosion in a Texas refinery tower killed 15 workers and injured 170 others. The cause was negligence; ignoring protocol and disabling a warning system. In 2006, 4,800 barrels of oil leaked into the ground in Alaska through a hole in the company’s pipeline
in Prudhoe Bay. Again, the cause was negligence; failure to inspect the pipeline, although a warning had been issued to do so four years earlier. Could stringent government regulations have averted this tragedy? Do American citizens play a part in this calamity? I think so, on both accounts. According to 2009 Gallup polling data, almost half of all Americans (45 percent) believe in less government regulation of businesses.
Another 57 percent say the government is trying to do too many things that should be left to businesses and individuals. In light of the BP oil disaster, I wonder what those polling numbers would look like if taken today. It is not surprising that any corporation would balk against more regulations from the federal government. Let us not forget the notable failures resulting from deregulation however, including the collapse of the savings and loan industry in the late 1980s, the California electricity crisis in 2000 and Enron’s market manipulation and deceptive accounting practices in 2001. Deregulation breeds self-interest and greed and greed knows no boundaries. History confirms that when left to their own devices, some business executives will cut corners, cook books, and devise scams. This is the dark side of capitalism. People must understand that fed-
eral regulation of businesses, while inconvenient and even annoying at times, is necessary for our own protection. Regulations provide a body of rules to govern activities based on our country’s values. Big business needs to be regulated to do what is prudent over the long haul. Or we can brace ourselves for more fallout created by those who operate without conscience. When all is said and done, I believe in light of this great oil tragedy in the Gulf, more Americans will demand increased regulation of big business, have a greater appreciation for the tree-hugging environmentalists who are often scoffed at, and will rethink the arrogance and zeal to “drill baby drill.” •

smart money Q: I wish you would give us a general talk about reverse mortgages. I am not sure that I trust the advice I have been receiving from someone who is selling them. Are there bruce any special criteria that set candidates apart? — S.W., via e-mail A: I have addressed this topic so many times, but clearly it is one that is either misunderstood or just a giant mystery to so many of you. Essentially, a reverse mortgage allows someone who has a lot of equity in a home but a relatively modest store of available cash to draw on the equity, not be obligated to make monthly payments as a traditional mortgage would require, and have the matter settled upon their demise as to return to the lender. Both parties must be at least 62 to qualify for a reverse mortgage. Somewhere around 75 makes more sense. The costs are generally higher than a
traditional mortgage as will be the interest rates. There is no penalty to you — your heirs, yes, but not to you. You are permitted to stay in the home as long as you live, as long as the taxes and insurance is paid. You never have to make a repayment, that is done after you pass away and the house is sold by the lender, assuming that your heirs don’t wish to pay off the mortgage and retain the mortgage property. If there are insufficient monies left in equity in the house to pay the lender, then the lender loses. Even though you have drawn out more money than can ever be recovered by the lender, you have incontrovertible life tendency as long as you meet the obligations contained to your end. It’s a very good deal for some and a lousy deal for others. By the way, there are no FHA reverse mortgages. One limitation with the reverse mortgage is even if your house is worth a ton, there are only limited amounts that, by law, are available to be received on a reverse mortgage. •

WASHINGTON — Whirlpool Corp.’s Maytag unit is recalling about 1.7 million dishwashers because of a fire hazard. The Consumer Product Safety Commission, which announced the recall today, says the company has received 12 reports of electrical failures in the dishwasher heating element that led to fires and damage. One kitchen fire caused extensive damage, the agency said. No injuries have been reported. The recall includes Maytag, Amana, Jenn-Air, Admiral, Magic Chef, Performa by Maytag and Crosley brand dishwashers with plastic tubs. The recalled dishwashers were made with black, bisque, white, silver and stainless steel front panels and sold at department and appliance stores nationwide from February 2006 through April 2010. They cost between $250 and $900. CPSC advises consumers to
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS immediately stop using the recalled dishwashers and disconnect the electric supply by shutting off the fuse or circuit breaker controlling it. Consumers can schedule a free in-home repair or receive a rebate of $150 or $250 toward the purchase of select new Maytag dishwashers. The amount of the rebate depends on the type of model to be purchased.
Geithner: Nations won’t agree on bank tax WASHINGTON — Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says the world’s major economies disagree over taxing banks to pay for future bailouts. But he said the differences are narrowing in other areas of financial reform. Geithner said Wednesday he did not think the Group
Stocks rise in early dealings on signs of economic growth NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are edging higher today after reports pointed to a modest recovery in the economy. The nation’s services industries continue to expand and factory orders rose in April. But like figures on jobs and productivity before the start of trading, the latest numbers fell short of economists’ expectations. Meanwhile, retailers reported mixed sales for May, indicating consumers remain cautious. The rush of economic news brought investors’ attention back to the U.S. economy after the focus had been on Europe’s debt situation and political issues around the world for the past month. The modest moves in stocks
follow a gain of 225 points in the Dow Jones industrial average Wednesday. It was the second straight day traders made big moves in the waning moments of trading. On Tuesday there was a steep sell-off just before the close. In midmorning trading, the Dow rose 6.88, or 0.1 percent, to 10,255.51. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 0.97, or 0.1 percent, to 1,099.35, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 5.40, or 0.2 percent, to 2,286.47. Four stocks rose for every three that fell on the New York Stock Exchange where volume came to 294.6 million shares compared with 303.6 million traded at the same point Wednesday.

of 20 major industrial and developing countries would reach agreement at upcoming meetings in South Timothy Korea over Geithner the question of imposing a new tax on banks. But he says differences were narrowing in other areas, including how to stiffen standards on how much capital banks need to protect against a future financial crisis. “We want to accelerate progress on a global agreement on core reforms,” Geithner told reporters at a briefing before he left for talks on Friday and Saturday in Busan, South Korea. The discussion among finance ministers and central bank governors will be to develop the agenda for President Barack Obama
and other G-20 leaders when they meet on June 26-27 in Toronto.
Treasury sells warrants for $2.97M WASHINGTON — A sale of First Financial Bancorp warrants has brought the government $2.97 million, the latest move to recoup costs for taxpayers from the $700 billion financial bailout. The Treasury Department said it sold 465,117 warrants at a price of $6.70 per warrant. Treasury had set a minimum bid price of $4. Warrants give the purchaser the right to buy common stock at a fixed price. The auction of the warrants, which was conducted Wednesday, represent an additional return for the government on the $80 million in support it provided the Cincinnati bank at the height of the financial crisis in December 2008.

Crime Continued from Page A1. Warren County outside Vicksburg has almost an equal population, but it’s less concentrated. “We feel fortunate that the youth crime statistics are not where they are in some areas,” said Sheriff Martin Pace. “Any crime involving the youth is too much. It’s not just damaging to the victims, but also tragic to the youth offender.” So far, the most arrests made in the city are for simple assault, a misdemeanor, with 47 arrests. “A lot of the assaults are stemming from incidents at the school,” Stewart said, adding that school resource officers at Vicksburg High School, Vicksburg Junior High School and Warren Central Junior High School have the authority to arrest those involved in fights. In March, Warren Central High School hired former Vicksburg police officer James Edward Lee Jr. as the school resource officer with grant funds. Unless prosecuted under specific statutes, juvenile cases are processed through Warren County Youth Court where sessions and records are closed to the public by law. Two other misdemeanors yielding arrests in the city were disorderly conduct with 34 and shoplifting of items under $250 with 38, but one offense that Stewart said has seen a decrease this year is robbery, a felony. “Robberies are going down due to the fact that 15- and 16-year-olds are now realizing that they can be charged as an adult,” Stewart said. “Some of those charged last year were charged as adults.” Last year, five teens made headlines when they were arrested for a string of armed robberies and assaults on pedestrians in the spring in the downtown area. Arrested were Conti Tillis, 17, 1110 Fayette St.; Deshawn Williams, 18, 119-B Elizabeth Circle; Jacorey Wright, 17, 1405 Locust St.; Blake Reed, 18, 2501 Culkin Road, Apt. G8, and Sha’Kayla Caples, 19, 414 Ford Road. All but Caples were indicted on up to six counts of armed rob-
bery, in which Tillis was sentenced to five years in prison, plus $522.50 in restitution and court costs. Caples was not prosecuted in exchange for her cooperation against the other defendants and a 2009 murder case in which her cousin, Gemini Porter, 16, 2501 Culkin Road, is a defendant. Porter, along with Kersey Young, 17, 1115 Adams Lane; and Roosevelt Dewayne Harris, 18, 1803 First East St., are accused in the March 15 shooting death of 25-year-old Antonio Turner on Alcorn Drive. Their trial is set to begin Monday. If convicted, the teens could face up to life in prison without parole. Harris is currently serving a five-year sentence for selling cocaine, for which he was convicted in March. Back this year after a year’s absence due to lack of funding is the summer youth street ball program. It will kick off Monday and continue through July 16, thanks to funds from the $1.46 million Safe Schools/Healthy Students Initiative grant awarded to the Vicksburg Warren School District last summer. Project director Sherrie Williams said the grant will provide about $9,500 to the program, allowing the police department to purchase sports equipment and refreshments as well as provide a gym and wages for two police officers. “Last year when we didn’t have it, the crime rate was high,” program director and police Sgt. Jackie Johnson said. “Our expectation is to lower the juvenile crime rate and to bring the kids together as one.” “We’re excited about street ball this summer,” said juvenile investigator Randy Naylor, also a Warren County constable. “In the past, it has kept a lot of kids out of the streets. They’re in a safe environment program under the supervision of certified police officers.” Johnson said two juvenile investigators, police officers, school resource officers, VPD clerks and staff members and volunteers will help with the nearly 400 students who attend street ball each night. In addition to competition, the program features guest speakers and movie nights. Youths 7 to 12 will be at the Warren Central High School gym and those ages 13 to 18 will be at the Vicksburg Junior High School gym from 4 to 10
p.m. Tuesday through Friday. Also under the SSHS grant, Williams said a summer boys and girls club has been established in conjunction with the police department to help students with issues under a project called Project SYNC, which stands for school and youth in a network community. “The grant focuses on violence prevention, gun prevention, teen pregnancy prevention, conflict resolution, alcohol and drug prevention and gang resistance,” Williams said. She said behavioral specialists, coaches, counselors and outside speakers have been recruited to teach and interact with students in the program set to kick off Monday and run through June 25. So far, over 115 students have been signed up. “I believe this will make a big difference,” Williams added. Also kicking off a summer camp for kids is the Central Mississippi Prevention Services. “We’ll help with (students’) academic skills and social skills,” facility director Joseph Johnson said. “We’ll have certified teachers work with them. We’ll do reviews with them of the grade they just completed.” The program, open to all students ages 5 to 14, will have academic and life skills classes as well as field trips around town. The facility on Grove Street also has a basketball court, tabletop games, computers and movies for its participants. In conjunction with the police department, City of Vicksburg and Vicksburg Housing Authority, the CMPS has established a satellite program at the main office of the VHA on Elizabeth Circle. “We’re trying to have a satellite program to make sure our students and parents are engaged,” Johnson said. Students interested in the program, set to begin Monday, must register with the CMPS. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily, students ages 5 to 17 can participate in a myriad of activities and classes. To keep students’ interest, Johnson said an incentive program was developed. “By their participation, they can win movie certificates or gift cards,” he said. “It will be up to them to tell us what they want to win.”
Continued from Page A1. Coast Friday to assess the latest efforts to counter the spill. This will be Obama’s third trip to the region since the April 20 accident that started the spewing of oil in the area, and it’s his second visit in a week. The latest attempt to control the spill, the so-called cut-and-cap method, is considered risky because slicing away a section of the 20-inchwide riser could remove kinks in the pipe and temporarily increase the flow of oil by as much as 20 percent. Oil drifted perilously close to the Florida Panhandle’s popular sugarwhite beaches, and crews on the mainland were doing everything possible to limit the catastrophe. The Coast Guard’s Allen directed BP to pay for five additional sand barrier projects in Louisiana. BP said this morning the project will cost it about $360 million, on top of about $990 million it had spent as of its latest expense update Tuesday on response and cleanup, grants to four Gulf coast states and claims from people and companies hurt by the spill. As the edge of the slick drifted within seven miles of Pensacola’s beaches, emergency workers rushed to link the last in a miles-long chain of booms designed to fend off the oil. They were slowed for a while by thunderstorms and wind.

Police hunt for porn actor accused in killing Dutchman suspected nation in Holloway case sought in killing of Peru woman LIMA, Peru (AP) — Police in neighboring Chile are checking hotels for a young Dutchman long suspected in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway who is now being sought in the killing of a woman in Peru. After Peruvian officials announced Wednesday that Joran van der Sloot is the prime suspect in the death of 21-yearold Stephany Flores in a Lima hotel, Chilean police confirmed he had entered their country two days earlier. Chilean Police Inspector Douglas Rodriguez in Arica said there was no record of van der Sloot leaving Chile and authorities were searching the country’s dry, sparsely populated northern provinces for him. In Lima, police Gen. Cesar Guardia said at a news conference that the slain woman was found Wednesday in a room at a hotel where van der Sloot had been staying and that she had been seen with the suspect early Sunday, when she was killed. The killing occurred exactly five years after the May 30, 2005, disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway during a high school trip in Aruba, a Dutch Caribbean island where van der Sloot’s late father was a

prominent judge. Prosecutors said van der Sloot is still their main suspect in the case even though he was never charged. The Dutch government said Interpol issued an international arrest warrant for van der Sloot in the Peru killing. But Rodriguez, the Chilean police official, said authorities there had received only a request to locate the suspect, not an arrest warrant. Guardia, the Peruvian police general, said the 22-year-old Dutchman was in Peru for a poker tournament and appears with the dead woman in a video taken at a Lima casino early Sunday. The two were later seen entering the hotel by one of its employees about 5 a.m. and the Dutchman departed alone about four hours later, he said. The woman’s body was found face down on the hotel room floor Wednesday.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Police are seeking the whereabouts of the man who once falsely claimed to have murdered JonBenet Ramsey after a former acquaintance told authorities that he John threatened to Mark Karr kill her if she revealed his attempts to form a cult of little girls to have sex with him. Samantha Spiegel, 19, claimed in a request for a restraining order against John Mark Karr that he made “ongoing death threats” and “threats of sexual exploitation to children” in e-mails and instant messages.

the nation’s busiest execution state. George Jones, 36, exhausted his court appeals and his lawyer made no last-day attempts to block the execution. Jones was arrested five months after the body of Forest Hall, 22, was found along a rural road near Lancaster, about 15 miles south of Dallas, in April 1993. When the prison warden asked if he had a final statement, Jones thanked his parents “who have been my pillar of strength” and his siblings. They didn’t witness the execution, but some of Hall’s relatives watched George through a Jones window. Jones told them he hoped the punishment “brings you closure or some type of peace.” Prosecutors said Hall, an employee at Parkland Memorial Hospital, was shot twice in the head after he was abducted and his car was taken from a Dallas shopping mall. A forensic examiner testified that Jones signed a pawn slip for the tires and rims that were stripped from Hall’s car, and its stereo
and speakers were found at Jones’ home. Jones acknowledged being a drug dealer but said prosecutors wrongly tied him to 21 crimes, including the killing of a Dallas woman shortly before his arrest. The woman’s brother and sister also witnessed Jones’ execution Wednesday.
Man accused of trying to swap baby for drugs CHICOPEE, Mass. — A not guilty plea has been entered for a man accused of offering to trade his 3-month-old daughter for crack cocaine. Matthew Brace of Northampton was arraigned Tuesday in Chicopee District Court on a charge of reckless endangerment of a child. Prosecutors say the 24-year-old Brace offered to give his daughter to a maintenance man at a gas station last month in exchange for “two 40s” — slang for crack cocaine, not 40-ounce bottles of beer as was previously reported. Brace’s attorney dismissed the charges as “totally trumped up allegations.”
Lightning strike hurts 9 at Old Faithful YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — A lightning strike in Yellow-
stone National Park injured nine people waiting to see Old Faithful geyser erupt and one man hit by the bolt on Tuesday was hospitalized until late Wednesday afternoon. The park identified him as Harlan C. Idell Jr., 57, of Leesburg, Fla. Yellowstone spokesman Al Nash said Wednesday he didn’t know the type of injuries Idell suffered. The others suffered minor injuries. Nash said the lightning struck about 4 p.m. Tuesday in an asphalt area near the Old Faithful Inn. “There were literally hundreds of people in the immediate area,” he said. Idell was flown to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Nash said some bystanders performed CPR on the man. When park rangers arrived shortly thereafter, the man was conscious and breathing on his own, Nash said. Idell was discharged from the hospital at about 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to a nursing supervisor. Seven others complaining of shortness of breath, tingling or numbness were treated and released from Old Faithful Clinic, while a ninth person who was struck did not seek medical attention.

Ex-JonBenet suspect accused of making threats
LOS ANGELES — Police are looking for a porn actor suspected of killing a colleague and injuring two others with a sword that was used as a movie prop. Stephen Hill, 34, fled in an SUV with the weapon after Tuesday night’s attack at Ultima Stephen DVD Inc.’s Hill production center and tape warehouse in Van Nuys, where he had been living, Detective Joel Price said. One man was attacked and two others tried to intervene, police said. A 30-year-old man who tried to help was stabbed in the torso and died at a hospital. His name has not been released. The other two victims were expected to survive. Hill had been told a week earlier to leave where he had lived for several months in the studio that appeared to double as an adult movie set.

Griffey retires from baseball
SEATTLE (AP) — Ken Griffey Jr. arrived in baseball a fresh-faced teenager with a radiant smile, a carefree attitude and unlimited potential. He spent 22 seasons becoming lauded as the greatest player of his generation. Ken Even as Griffey Jr. his career declined through injuries and age, Griffey left the game on his own terms and still held in the highest of regards and one of the greats in baseball history. Now relegated to parttime duty and with little pop left in that perfect swing, Griffey unexpectedly decided Wednesday to retire after 22 mostly brilliant seasons. The Kid who once saved baseball in the Pacific Northwest with his backward hat, giddy teenage smile and unrivaled talent, had become a shell of the player who dominated the 1990s. The 40-year-old Griffey wasn’t at Safeco Field on Wednesday. He simply released a statement through the Seattle Mariners — the franchise he helped saved in the ‘90s and returned to for the conclusion of his career — that he was done playing.

The Vicksburg Swim Association always has held its own at the Stamm Family Invitational, given its limited numbers. Thanks to a roster that has exploded in size over the last two years, it’s time to make a run at the top. The VSA will have 71 swimmers in this weekend’s annual meet at City Pool and it’s the team’s biggest squad in years. In a meet whose outcome is often dominated by larger teams boasting hordes of swimmers, it will give the home team a fight-
ing chance at a top finish in the team standings. “I’d like to see us finish in the top three. We have the second largest team entered in the meet,” said coach Mathew Mixon, who led the team to a third-place finish last year. “Swimming is a great sport because you get to do the individual and the team parts. It makes it more fun when you see the team part succeeding.” The VSA’s main competition should come from the usual suspects — the Jackson-based Mississippi Makos and Madison’s Sunkist
quintuple the score of second-place Sunkist. Smaller teams from Monroe, Cleveland, Natchez and Picayune will round out the field. In all, about 250 swimmers ages 5-18 will participate in the three-day meet that begins Friday morning at 11 with the youth events. The meet resumes Saturday and Sunday at 9 a.m. each day. City Pool will be closed to the public for swimming all three days, but admission to the meet is free. “We’re pretty happy with the turnout. We have more 10-and-unders on the Friday morning session than we’ve ever had,” Mixon said.
The meet is named in honor of the Stamm family, which coached and participated in the sport in Vicksburg for several decades and helped found the organization. One of the Stamm family members, Alan Ebersole, died in 2004 when he broke his neck on a submerged rock and drowned off the Florida coast. He was a swimmer for Princeton University at the time. In 2005, the VSA changed the name of the meet formerly known as the River City Classic to honor Ebersole’s memory as well as the family’s contributions to swimming in Vicksburg.

By The Associated Press DETROIT — Armando Galarraga bitterly sipped a beer minutes after he almost pitched a perfect game, lashing out at first base umpire Jim Joyce for blowing a call that negated his place in baseball history. An apology and hug changed Galarraga’s attitude. Joyce, in tears, asked for a chance to apologize after the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 3-0 Wednesday night. “You don’t see an umpire after the game come out and say, ‘Hey, let me tell you I’m sorry,”’ Galarraga said “He felt really bad. He didn’t even shower.” The perfect game that wasn’t. MLB declined comment on Joyce’s call. Social networking sites, meanwhile, were buzzing about it. Galarraga, who was barely known outside of Detroit a day ago, and Joyce, whose career had flourished in relative anonymity, quickly became a trending topics on Twitter. At least one antiJoyce Facebook page was created shortly after the game ended and a firejimjoyce.com was launched. “I worked with Don Denkinger, and I know what he went through, but I’ve never had a moment like this,” Joyce said. Denkinger didn’t have to deal with the wrath of fans on Twitter or Facebook. Denkinger helped tilt the 1985 World Series, and that followed him throughout his career, by blowing a call as a first base umpire. Joyce has been calling balls and strikes and deciding if runners are out or safe

mlb as a full-time major league umpire since 1989. He has been respected enough to be on the field for two World Series, 11 other playoff series and a pair of All-Star games. A split-second decision he made will probably haunt him for the rest of his career. Joyce emphatically signaled safe when Cleveland’s Jason Donald clearly didn’t beat a throw to first base for what would’ve been the last out in Armando Galarraga’s perfect game for the Detroit Tigers, setting off a chorus of groans and boos that
echoed in Comerica Park. The instantly infamous play also will add to the argument that Major League Baseball needs to expand its use of replays. It’s rare for an umpire to acknowledge a mistake in one of the few sports that relies heavily on the human eye, but Joyce did to reporters and later to Galarraga. “It was the biggest call of my career, and I kicked the (stuff) out of it,” Joyce said, looking and sounding distraught as he paced in the umpires’ locker room. “I just cost that kid a perfect game.” Leyland was livid during
the game when he charged out of the dugout to argue the call and got in another heated discussion with Joyce after the final out. Later, though, Leyland tried to give Joyce a break. “The players are human, the umpires are human, the managers are human,” Leyland said. Galarraga tried to calm his nerves with a beer after the game after almost getting to celebrate the first perfect game in franchise history. He was vying for the third perfect game in the majors this year, including Roy Halladay’s gem last Saturday night.
ATLANTA — Omar Infante came in for injured Chipper Jones and lined a two-out, runscoring single in the eighth inning to back Derek Lowe’s best outing of the season, leading the Atlanta Braves to their eighth straight win, 2-1 over the slumping Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday. The Braves finished off a threegame sweep of the defending NL champions and increased their lead in the East Omar Infante Division to 21⁄2 games as they headed off on an 11-game road trip that could determine if they’re a true contender for their first playoff appearance since 2005. Lowe (8-4) went eight innings in his longest outing of the season, allowing six hits and the only Philadelphia run. Billy Wagner worked a scoreless ninth for his ninth save. Jose Contreras (2-2) took the loss. The offense-challenged Phillies wasted a strong outing by Kyle Kendrick, who surrendered five hits and a run in the seven innings. Philadelphia never led in the series.
Girls need a (football) league of their own Slow-pitch softball is dying on the vine. Last season, only 197 of the 265 Mississippi High School Activities Association member high schools fielded a slow-pitch team. Vicksburg and Warren Central formed a two-team slow-pitch division this season, with both qualifying for the postseason before the season began. So much for a great division race. Mississippi and Oklahoma are among the only holdouts in a primarily fast-pitch oriented world as their activities associations still sanction it as a varsity sport. In this era of Title IX, when state governing bodies are trying to keep their gender
STEVE WILSON numbers square with the regulations, this is very telling. Fast-pitch is the present and future, as judged by the crowds watching the College World Series live and on ESPN. Slow-pitch is a thing of the past, a rusting relic holding on for dear life. But when one sport withers away, another is always waiting to take its place.
There’s a new sport sweeping Florida and Alaska and there’s no reason why it couldn’t work in this footballcrazed state. That sport would be girls flag football. It’s not a powder-puff game. More than 5,000 girls played varsity flag football in Florida, according to a recent story in the New York Times and the sport is easy to set up and requires little in the way of equipment. A couple of footballs, cleats, Velcro flags, sneakers and some end zone markers for the 80-yard field are all that are required. School districts would not require a huge capital expense to get this sport moving.
Rules-wise, this game is a winner with a great combination of strategy and athleticism. Also, it would be a sport where size really doesn’t matter, giving more average-sized athletes a chance to compete on a level playing field. The game is seven-onseven, with teams receiving four downs to move the ball 20 yards and no tackling. But other than that, it’s a game with universal appeal. Imagine the best of a run-andshoot style, with passing and lots of trick plays and you’ve got flag football. But when could it be played? The easy way to slot flag football into the academic
calendar would be to first move fast-pitch to the fall. Georgia does it and it works remarkably well. With most fast-pitch players hitting the field in the summer, the quality of play would likely improve. Also volleyball could be an alternative in the fall, with soccer and basketball in the winter and flag football hitting the field in the spring. It’s time to give girls a league of their own. It is an idea whose time has come. •

NHL Flyers beat Blackhawks 4-3 in overtime in Game 3 PHILADELPHIA — Claude Giroux scored 5:59 into overtime to give the Philadelphia Flyers a 4-3 overtime victory over Chicago in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals Wednesday night, cutting the Blackhawks’ series lead to 2-1. Game 4 is Friday night in Philadelphia. Giroux scored on a deflection off Matt Carle’s pass to beat Antti Niemi and win the third straight one-goal game in the series. The Blackhawks, trying to win their first Stanley Cup title since 1961, snapped a seven-game winning streak and a seven-game road winning streak. Giroux scored moments after Simon Gagne thought he scored the winner, only to have replay officials rule the puck didn’t cross the goal line.
Tennis Schivanoe advances to French Open finals PARIS — Francesca Schiavone became the first Italian woman to reach a Grand Slam final Thursday, and the first person to offer congratulations was her semifinal opponent, Elena Dementieva. The handshake came in concession after only one set. Dementieva unexpectedly retired with a left calf injury after losing the first set 7-6 (3). She left the court shaking her head and walked up to Schiavone, who was sitting in her changeover chair, before extending a hand. Dementieva sobbed before heading for the exit. It’s the first time in the Open era that a woman retired in a semifinal or final at Roland Garros. At 29, she had never previously advanced beyond the quarterfinals in a Grand Slam. On Saturday she’ll play the winner of the second semifinal between No. 4-seeded Jelena Jankovic and No. 7 Samantha Stosur.
NFL Childress not concerned with Twitter trash talk
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Minnesota head coach Brad Childress said Wednesday he is not concerned with the trash-talking Twitter tussle going on between Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe and Saints safety Darren Sharper.

Attorney: Coleman, wife were divorced New details surrounding TV actor Gary Coleman’s death have emerged with his attorney saying the child star of “Diff’rent Strokes” and his wife divorced in 2008, and Utah authorities releasing a tape of her frantic 911 call after he struck his head in a fall. Coleman died from a brain hemorrhage Friday, two days after the 911 call. He was taken off life support, but it’s not clear who made that decision. Coleman’s attorney, Randy Kester, said he does not know. “Now issues are being raised about whether or not Shannon had authority to terminate the life support,” he said Wednesday. A spokesman with Utah Valley Regional Medical Center told AP she cannot release any additional information about Coleman’s death. Kester said that Coleman and Shannon Price divorced in August 2008 and Coleman never told him the two had remarried. Utah divorce decree documents list only a John Doe and Jane Doe as parties, but the last page lists Price’s name and address, saying a copy of the decree was mailed to her. The decree is dated Aug. 12, 2008. The couple wed in August 2007 after meeting on the set of the 2006 comedy “Church Ball.” Kester said he is not aware of a will for Coleman.

The couple have two other children, 1-year-old Hayes and 3-year-old Cayden. The 55-year-old actor has three grown children from a previous marriage.

Hexing car dealer gets 12 years in jail A used-car dealer is headed to prison for fraud, despite attempting to place a voodoo hex on prosecutors handling his case in Los Angeles, authorities said. Thirty-four-year-old Ruben Hernandez was sentenced Wednesday to 12 years after being convicted of using false Social Security information and bank statements to buy properties. Hernandez was arrested in February 2009 after being a fugitive for a year. Authorities searching his home found a shrine with voodoo dolls dunked headfirst in cups of water with pins in their eyes. Officials said the case number and names of the prosecutor and investigators were written on the dolls. Hernandez was convicted in May on four counts of filing a false application and three counts of grand theft. He was ordered to return to court next Wednesday to face 28 additional counts.
Breaking up is hard to do
Gores’ split after 40 years not so uncommon NEW YORK (AP) — There was no salacious sex scandal, no prostitution ring, no mysterious trip to Argentina. Al and Tipper Gore are a famous political couple, but their split after 40 years of marriage apparently stemmed from a much simpler, more mundane cause, according to friends: They simply grew apart. And in that, experts say, they’re no different from many Americans. Such late-marriage splits are much more common than we think. “We tend to mistakenly believe that once people reach a certain point in marriage, they just stop splitting up,” says Betsey Stevenson, an economist at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School who studies family trends. “But that’s simply not true.” In fact, Stevenson says, though marriages are more likely to fail in the first 10 years, once you get past that, “the percentage of those divorcing each year is very similar throughout the years of marriage.” Of course, there’s no getting around the shock factor surrounding the separation announcement by the Gores, which came in an e-mail Tuesday to friends. Unlike many political couples, they’d spoken openly of their feelings for each other and seemed to share an easy affection, not to mention four children and three grandchildren. That affection was apparent even without The Kiss — the go-for-broke liplock between the vice president and his wife at the 2000 Democratic convention that made so many blush, and is probably doing so again, on YouTube. Was it impulsive or calculated? Either way, it was still quite a kiss. But now the Gores are parting, and many are asking not only, “Why THEM?” but “Why NOW?” Talk to relationship experts,
McCartney turns ‘Michelle’ into ode to first lady WASHINGTON (AP) — Paul McCartney had been itching to perform a certain song at the White House, and he seized the moment when it arrived. The former Beatle brought down the house at an East Room concert Wednesday night by belting out “Michelle,” aiming its romantic lyrics straight at a first lady named Michelle. After serenading the first lady with the words, Paul “I love you, I McCartney love you, I love you,” McCartney joked that he just might be the “first guy ever to be punched out by a president.” The president didn’t seem to mind though: He was swaying along to the beat while his wife mouthed the words along with McCartney. The 90-minute concert was built around Obama’s presentation to McCartney of the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, awarded by the Library of Congress. The president said McCartney had “helped to lay the soundtrack for an entire generation.” McCartney, 67, said it was a moment like no other. The concert featured an allstar lineup of top performers doing their own interpretations of some of McCartney’s greatest hits. McCartney said it was inspiring to see what other people did with his music. Among those performing were Stevie Wonder, the Jonas Brothers, Faith Hill, Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Herbie Hancock, White Stripes singer and guitarist Jack White, pianist Lang Lang and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.
The associated press
Al Gore gets a kiss from his wife, Tipper, during a 2000 campaign rally in Dearborn, Mich. though, and they point to a host of reasons why a couple at such a late stage might find themselves in the same position. Perhaps the most obvious: After 40 years, children have been launched and are well into adulthood, often with children of their own. Before then, even when children are teens or young adults, parenting can be so all-consuming that it’s virtually a permanent distraction from one’s own marriage. Compounding the normal stresses and demands of raising four children, the Gores went through a painful ordeal when their then 6-year-old son, Albert, was nearly killed in a car accident. “Even with older children, the demands are quite intense,” says Elana Katz, a family therapist and divorce mediator at New York’s Ackerman Institute for the Family. “That can be distracting, or it can create a strong bond. But when that chapter is done, people face each other across the kitchen table and say, ‘Can this be the relationship that’s my primary source of enjoyment as we go forward?”’ Also, says Katz, older people have expectations for their relationships now that previous generations may not have. “Even a couple of decades ago,
people didn’t have the same expectations of love and intimacy at a later age,” she says. It’s significant that Al and Tipper Gore married in 1970, notes Stephanie Coontz, author of “Marriage, A History,” and professor of family studies at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash. Marriages in the late ’60s and ’70s are marked by higher divorce rates than those of later years, she says. Why? Partly because people still married very young. (Tipper Gore was 21 and Al Gore 22 when they wed.)

Good marriage undermined by bad sex life DEAR ABBY ABIGAIL
The reason sex therapy has become a medical specialty is that so many couples have the same problems you’re experiencing. Before deciding to call it quits, ask your doctor for a referral to a sex therapist. Dear Abby: I am going to be a sophomore in college next year. I played basketball in high school and was offered a full scholarship to play at the college I attend now. I played ball during my freshman year, and I do not want to do it again next year. My heart is no longer in it. My biggest fear is letting my parents down. I know having my education paid for has helped them out, but don’t I have a right to do what makes me happy? Please help me
BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Gemini (May 21-June 20) — There’s a chance that neither you nor a person with whom you’re presently involved will be completely forthright with one another. Compatibility can only be achieved through honesty. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Take nothing for granted when doing business with an unfamiliar firm or individual. If you are promised something big in return for your input, get it in writing first. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — It’s good to be hopeful, but it is more important to be realistic about a situation in which you find yourself. Crossing your fingers and/or guessing about the outcome could lead to failure. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Fretting about things that are likely to never happen is a lesson in futility. Instead of making feasible plans and acting on them, fear will merely impede any progress that could be made. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Understanding that you are not perfect enables you to laugh at yourself and/or your mistakes, but today you could have a tendency to take things far too seriously, which could lead to depression. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Utilize your time productively, especially when it comes to your work or career. Making plans is good, but remember it is only part of the job. Execution is the essential element. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You understand better than most that not everyone is likely to be in accord with your thinking, yet today you could blow a disagreement totally out of proportion. Get back in form. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Do your best not to get involved with any endeavor in which the management is taken out of your hands. It won’t be possible for you to stand by and not try to control matters. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Others will cooperate with you if you first show them that you are looking out for their interests as well. If you don’t give, don’t expect them to come through for you. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Large objectives can be achieved, but only if you persevere and are prepared to make the necessary sacrifices. Follow the old saying: “In order to get, you must first give.” Aries (March 21-April 19) — It’s not like you, because you have your own trophies, but today you could be a trifle jealous of a friend who has done something to be applauded. Don’t let it show. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Don’t set goals for yourself that are beyond your capabilities. Make progress wherever you can, because even many small victories will add up to a lot.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’d like for you to give me some valid reasons why it is better to be married than to remain single. All of my girlfriends can’t wait to be a bride, but I think that I might want the freedom to do as I darn well please. Also, I don’t think I want the responsibility of being a parent. What will I be missing if I do wind up being single? — Melody, Holland, Mich. Melody: You are 100 percent correct in your thinking. Some know that eventually marriage and family will be their lifestyle, while others don’t want the responsibility of family life and prefer the freedom of doing their thing without ever sharing or compromising. I’m positive there are many benefits of being single, but I’ve been married so long (happily, I might add) that I can’t speak for the single lifestyle. But since you want valid reasons why it’s better to be married (happily, of course), I’ll respond: • Because they pool resources, married people tend to be better off financially and that translates into more healthful food, safer surroundings and other things that reduce stress. • Because of their sense of obligation to each other, married couples may be less likely to smoke, abuse alcohol or take other health risks. • Couples usually monitor each other’s health habits and urge each other to seek medical help when a problem occurs. • Spouses offer affection, a sympathetic ear and moral support in tough situations, all of which offer solace during stressful times. • Married couples receive an income tax break from the government. • And, finally, because the marital rewards are so numerous and my space is so limited, I must end with the fact that living with someone you love and being loved is the ultimate in life. However, all of these positives can turn negative when a marriage fails. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.
come up with a way to convince them that I’m making the right decision. — Dropping the Ball in Iowa Dear Dropping the Ball: Before you make a final decision, you need to know what penalties there may be for dropping your athletic scholarship. You should also check to find out what academic scholarships or loan programs you might qualify for, and if there are any part-time jobs available in case your parents are unable to foot the entire bill for your education. You should also keep in mind that, in a sense, your athletic scholarship is a job that’s getting you through college, and it doesn’t have to be your heart’s desire to be a means to an end. Dear Abby: I am writing to thank the schoolteachers, librarians and counselors who were kind to me when I was an at-risk child. My mother was mentally ill, my father was absent, and the school was my haven. I often wish I could tell some of those
adults who helped me along the way that I did make it, that I turned out OK, and that I’m so grateful for the little and big ways they intervened in my life. To all who serve children: Please know that even very small kindnesses give hope and strength to the child who doesn’t receive them elsewhere. — Turned Out OK Thanks to You Dear Turned Out OK: You have written a beautiful letter, one that could have been written by many students to the educators and other adults who, by their acts of kindness, made a positive difference in their lives. If we think back, I suspect that most of us have had at least one. I know I have, and I, too, am grateful to them.

Hundreds of fatty tumors plague woman reader Dear Dr. Gott: I am a 53-yearold female who is about 50 pounds overweight. I have saved, for years, the column you wrote on fatty tumors. I had a few of them, but my doctor said to leave them alone, even though they could be seen through my clothing. In the past two to three years, they have multiplied, and I know I probably have hundreds of them. I’ve had a few removed that are painful, and they were lipomas, as suspected. Some of the remaining ones are painful; some are not. Should I continue to “let it go,” or should I have more removed? In your column, you said it could be associated with Gardner’s syndrome. Should I look into that area? Would losing weight help, or would they just become more pronounced? Dear Reader: Most peripheral nerve tumors are benign. There are a number of types, including lipomas, ganglion cysts, schwannomas, dumbbell tumors and neurofibromas. Lipomas present as soft lumps under the skin, commonly appearing on the back, neck, arms or shoulders, caused by slow-growing fat cells. As a general rule, they do not cause pain, but because they can compress nerves, you should have periodic exams. Ganglion cysts can occur almost anywhere but commonly form near the wrist or at the base of a finger. If there’s no pain, you can ignore them. If there’s pain, restricted use of a joint and paresthesias, surgical removal may be appropriate. A schwannoma is common, slow-growing, benign and can appear anywhere on the body. Vestibular schwannomas occur near the cerebellum and brainstem. They can press on the nerves that control balance and affect hearing. Dumbbell tumors are so called because of their appearance. They may occur in the spine or lower abdomen by the hip. They can become intertwined with the sciatic nerve. If surgery is necessary, it should be accomplished at an extremely reputable facility. Neurofibromas are common in people diagnosed with neurofibromatosis. Most patients have mild symptoms, but related conditions, such as bone enlargement or deformity, scoliosis and tumors affecting the eye, can occur. Colon polyps, multiple osteoma and soft-tissue tumors characterize Gardner’s syndrome. The average age of diagnosis is 22. A common symptom, other than lipomas, is dental anomalies, such as multiple impactions. Treatment depends on the location and appearance of the lesions. Surgical excision may be recommended. Speak with your physician about a weight-loss program. I don’t know whether losing

50 pounds would improve your situation. I do know that fat cells increase in volume and size with weight gain, and liposuction, for example, will reduce the number of fat cells in the body. If losing weight works, you will feel better and the number of slow-growing fat cells within your body may be reduced. This is a win-win situation.

Dear Abby: My wife, “Alana,” and I have been married for 14 years. In many ways our marriage is good, but our sex life is horrible. In my opinion, it has never been good. As time passes, I feel more and more anger toward her. Alana is attractive and physically fit; I don’t understand her lack of desire. When the subject of sex comes up, it makes us both clam up. I have been thinking of leaving her. We have become more like best friends than husband and wife. Our two boys would be crushed if we split. I have not — and would never consider — an affair. What do you think about this? — Troubled Husband in Missouri Dear Troubled: Good sex is all about open communication. If the subject makes you and your wife both clam up, it’s no wonder your sex life has faltered. Before you and Alana can get on the same wavelength, you need to understand how each of you defines a good sex life.
