Ferris to receive group’s highest honor MIAL lifetime achievement recipients include Welty, Freeman and Foote By Steve Sanoski firstname.lastname@example.org It started when directors of the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters wanted to recognize Vicksburg-native Dr. Bill Ferris for his most recent book, “Give My Poor Heart Ease: Voices of the Mississippi Blues,” which is accompanied by Ferris’ audio and video field recordings from the 1960s and ’70s. “We were trying to find a category for it, but we were stuck because it overlaps so many,” explained Margaret Robbins, institute executive secretary. “Somebody pointed out that it’s really the culmination of a lifetime of work, and it just went from
there.” Today, Ferris will be honored by MIAL with a Lifetime Achievement award in Jackson at Bill the MissisFerris sippi Museum of Art. The institute is marking its 31st year of awarding Mississippi writers, artists and musicians for their work. Awards and high praise are not exactly rare for Ferris, a folklorist, professor, author of 10 books, former chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities and current professor and senior associate director of the Center

June 15 is the new date on which Vicksburg officials have been assured Kanzaa Construction will begin work on the bridge replacement project at Washington and Clark. A contract with that date was eagerly inked by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen at a special called meeting Friday afternoon. “You have a motion, Mr. Mayor, and I’m glad to make it,” said North Ward Alderman Michael Mayfield of the lone item on the agenda. “And I’ll make a happy second,” responded Mayor Paul Winfield before the two unanimously approved the deal with Kansas City Southern’s project contractor. South Ward Alderman Sid Beauman was absent. In a meeting that lasted four minutes, the board essentially put an end to a multi-year search for a solution to one of the city’s biggest transportation dilemmas. The 200-foot bridge has been closed to all traffic since January 2009 and was troublesome long before that. It crosses a steep cut in the bank about a half-mile from the Mississippi River. Sloughing kept claiming approaches and shifting piers. As the span connecting Interstate 20 and downtown along the city’s main north-south Washington Street corridor, its continued closure has been a headache for motorists, residents, business owners and politicians alike. The 80-year-old bridge is to be replaced with a road-topped rail tunnel, of which KCS, See Bridge, Page A7.
Obama lashes out at BP over spill The Associated Press GRAND ISLE, La. — Dogged for being too calm in crisis, President Barack Obama unleashed frustration for all to see Friday, warning BP it had better do right by the people whose lives it has wrecked. The president’s third trek to the Gulf of Mexico was about the workers with no government titles, the shrimpers and the shopkeepers, the fishermen whose lives have been upended and are running out of people to blame. Yet Obama’s trip was also about him. He says it serves little substantive point to go around and yell — that people want results, not a show — but presidents face peril if they

do not connect emotionally. As the crisis has dragged on — and his poll ratings have slipped — his words for BP’s leaders have grown sharper. “I don’t want them nickeland-diming people down here,” Obama said after his latest briefing on the oil response. He promised his government would look over
BP’s shoulder to ensure it was paying out claims. His visit amounted to one long I’m-on-your-side passage for reeling communities. Along that same line, he invited family members of the 11 workers killed when the BP rig blew up to visit the White House next Thursday. Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the president had written to each of the families. As for BP, Obama cast the oil company as a corporate giant interested in protecting its image with TV ads and its shareholders with bountiful dividends. “I don’t want somebody else bearing the costs of those risks that they took,” Obama said. “I want to make See Spill, Page A7.

Flowers’ 6th trial in ’96 murders draws attention By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press JACKSON — Alan Bean, a Texas minister who runs an advocacy group focused on due process in criminal cases, has a blog dedicated to Curtis Flowers, a Mississippi man facing his sixth trial for the 1996 shooting deaths of four people. Bean has traveled to Winona, the shooting scene, seven times over the last several months Curtis hoping to dig Flowers up details that could help clear Flowers in the killings or at least raise awareness about it. “My primary goal is to bring attention to cases with a strong potential for wrongful prosecution,” said Bean. Flowers’ latest trial is scheduled to begin next week in Montgomery County, where the crime occurred on July 16, 1996. He’s believed to be the first American tried six times on the same evidence in a death penalty case in recent history. Prosecutors said Flowers was a disgruntled former employee with a motive: revenge against storeowner Bertha Tardy, who withheld most of his pay to cover the cost of merchandise he damaged. Court records show nearly $300 was missing from the business in

Curtis Flowers is believed to be the first American tried six times on the same evidence in a death penalty case in recent history. Winona, a rural town in north Mississippi. All of the victims had been shot in the head. Flowers was employed at the store dusting and unloading furniture less than a week before he stopped working there, court records show. The bulk of the evidence against him at his first trial in 1997 were bloody footprints, gunpowder residue found on him and testimony from witnesses who had different descriptions of what Flowers was wearing the day of the murders. The Mississippi Supreme Court reversed three convictions against Flowers and two trials ended in mistrials. Justices pointed to prosecutorial misconduct from the beginning, citing a “cumulative pattern of overkill” in Flowers’ first trial in Tardy’s death in 1997. After the third go-round, the state Supreme Court granted Flowers a new trial in 2006, saying prosecutors sought to keep black people off his jury. His last case in 2008 ended in a mistrial. That there was more than one high court reversal raises red flags, said Cynthia Orr, president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, who said
she’s studied the case but isn’t involved. “That’s unusual. It shows me the case is really burdened with a lot of high emotion and high passion. That’s when mistakes are made,” Orr said. “In the vast majority of cases, either the prosecution is abandoned or some deal is made.” District Attorney Doug Evans said he didn’t want to discuss the case because “anything I say at this point could keep us from getting a jury.” Ray Charles Carter, Flowers’ defense attorney, also declined to comment. Evans said the number of trials isn’t unusual, but Scott Burns, executive director of the National District Attorneys Association, disagreed. “From a national perspective, a sixth retrial is extremely unusual if not unheard of,” Burns said. Killed were Tardy and three employees — bookkeeper Carmen Rigby, 45; delivery worker Robert Golden, 42; and Derrick Stewart, a 16-year-old high school baseball star who worked part-time at the store. Golden was black. The rest of the victims were white. In previous trials, prosecutors have argued Flowers used a .380-caliber gun stolen from the car of Doyle Simpson, a relative. No gun was ever
introduced as evidence. At least one key witness has died — Charles “Porky” Collins, who had identified Flowers as one of two men arguing outside Tardy Furniture soon after the slayings. However, Collins’ previous testimony will be admissible in next week’s trial. Evans dismissed talk that he and investigators developed “tunnel vision” and only focused on Flowers. “We looked at everything,” he said. But Bean is convinced one person couldn’t have pulled off the killings, and that’s what he’s said on blog as director of Friends of Justice. He formed the organization in the aftermath of a drug investigation in Tulia, Texas, in the 1990s in which charges were eventually dropped against dozens of would-be suspects amid allegations of racism. Bean said prosecutors had no fingerprint or DNA evidence from Flowers. “Whoever did this was a deeply troubled person, or just a cold killer,” Bean said. “Most people cannot walk up to an innocent person and shoot them in the back of the head.” Flowers, who was 26 when he was charged, worked for Tardy for less than a month. The man who once sang in his father’s gospel group had no criminal record before he was charged with the killings, Bean said.

ACLU, state reach deal to shut unit at Parchman By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press JACKSON — An agreement has been reached to remove all inmates from the notorious Unit 32 at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman, which once housed death row and mentally ill inmates in conditions that prisoner advocates described as inhumane. The American Civil Liberties Union filed a motion Friday in U.S. District Court asking a federal judge to dismiss its lawsuit against the Mississippi Department of Corrections. MDOC has been implementing changes at Unit 32 ever since a consent decree was reached in the case in 2006, a year after the complaint was filed. “It’s a very big and important step after these profound stages to now be emptying that place, finally,” said Margaret Winter, associate director of the ACLU National Prison Project.
MINNESOTA CHEAP SHOT
Candidate uses Miss. as punchline ‘If budget cuts were always the answer, then Mississippi would be a leader in this country.’
By Emily Wagster Pettus Associated Press Writer The associated press
The Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman The agreement requires MDOC to transfer all the remaining inmates in Unit 32 to other housing over the next several months and ensure all inmates receive adequate medical and mental health care. The unit had held as many as 1,000 inmates. Winter said fewer than 200 remain in Unit 32, and it’s unclear where they will be placed. The agreement requires those with serious mental illness to be housed at MDOC’s mental health facility in Meridian. “My hope is that we will not see Unit 32 re-created somewhere else,” Winter said. MDOC Commissioner Chris Epps was traveling Friday and couldn’t be reached immediately for comment. MDOC’s changes at the facility in recent years have pertained to health care, mental health care, the use of force and the classification of prisoners. “We have more than com-
plied with the agreement that we entered into with the ACLU and this dismissal is evidence of our compliance,” Epps said in a statement released through his office Friday. The ACLU had alleged in its complaint that mentally ill inmates were sent to Unit 32 because of poor discipline, but a 23-hour-a-day confinement caused their condition to worsen. The ACLU also alleged physical abuse by guards, poor sanitary conditions and extreme heat during the summer months. “It was one of the very worst prisons in the nation when we brought this suit. The conditions there were atrocious,” Winter said. “It was a generator for violence and mental illness.” The ACLU will monitor the situation over the next year, and if conditions of the agreement aren’t met, the lawsuit can be restored to the court docket, Winter said.
JACKSON — Mississippi is one of the poorest, fattest states in the nation. As a punch line, it’s the gift that keeps on giving for politicians in other places. The latest candidate using Mississippi as an example of what-we-don’t-want-our-stateto-be is Minnesota gubernatorial candidate Matt Entenza. One of three Democrats in a Aug. 10 primary, Entenza started running a TV ad in his home state Thursday with images of Minnesota construction workers, schoolchildren, fire trucks and police cars fading away. “If budget cuts were always the answer, then Mississippi would be a leader in this country,” Entenza says in the ad. It’s a line Entenza also weaves into speeches as he runs for a seat that Republican Tim Pawlenty will leave early next year. Dan Turner, spokesman for Mississippi’s Republican governor, Haley Barbour, told The Associated Press on Friday: “Before someone makes a dis-

Stepfather charged with killing toddler WAYNESBORO — A Waynesboro man was held on $1 million bond after being charged with murder in the death of a 17-monthold child. Police Chief Jimmy Bunch said Scott Druex Smith, 27, was arrested this week and charged in the death of Ally Waldrop. Bunch says Smith is the girl’s stepfather. Bunch says the child died May 28 after her mother came home from work and found Ally not breathing. Autopsy results are pending.
Miss. Medicaid: No cuts in providers’ payments JACKSON — The Mississippi Medicaid program says it’s withdrawing its proposal to reduce payments to doctors, dentists and other health care providers for April, May and June. Medicaid director Bob Robinson told providers March 31 that the program intended to trim their pay-
ments during the final quarter of the state budget year because of a projected funding shortfall. In a news release issued at the close of business Friday, Robinson said he now believes Medicaid will make it through June 30, the end of the budget year, without a deficit. He said several things helped improve the budget, including cuts in administrative costs and decreases in spending on medical services.

He said he worked as an attorney for the U.S. Justice Department’s civil rights division. “I got run out of Greenwood,” Entenza said Friday after a candidates’ forum in Minnesota. Barbour has cut Mississippi’s budget five times since last July, taking it from about $6 billion to $5.5 billion because of lethargic tax collections. Dozens of states have tightened spending and cut services during the recession. Entenza said Minnesota has historically been near the top and Mississippi near the bottom on education and health care “and now we’re
Blues Trail to honor Winter brothers LELAND — Blues-rock guitarist Johnny Winter and singer-keyboardist brother Edgar Winter will be honored Sunday with the placing of a Mississippi Blues Trail marker in Leland.

The dedication ceremony will follow today’s Highway 61 Blues Festival, where Johnny Winter is scheduled to Johnny appear as the Winter headliner. The Winter family was prominent in local social, civic and business circles and was also well known for its musical endeavors. Johnny and Edgar’s father, John Dawson Winter Jr., played and sang at churches, weddings, Kiwanis and Rotary Club gatherings and other events, including neighborhood front porch concerts with his family at the Winter home.

There’s nothing unusual about politicos dissing Mississippi, a state consistently near the bottom for per-capita income and near the top for unemployment, obesity and other unfavorable rankings. This spring, a Democratic state lawmaker from Illinois visited the Mississippi Capitol in Jackson and apologized for his clumsy defense of a $28 million renovation of the Statehouse in Springfield. Rep. Jack Franks said in 2007: “Certainly, the chamber has to be nice and to befit a state of our stature. It’s not like we’re Mississippi. We’re a rich state.”

JACK VIX SAYS: Hope those three teens accused of murder appreciate the plea deal they got.
Complicated From other Mississippi newspapers: • The Hattiesburg American: A special blue-ribbon panel studying school consolidation is moving cautiously as it seeks to put together recommendations for possibly merging some of Mississippi’s 152 school districts. That is understandable because consolidating school districts is one of the most controversial issues to tackle. But it is also one of the most important. The group, appointed by Gov. Haley Barbour, has been working on a draft proposal. Earlier the panel heard recommendations from an outside consulting firm, which proposed the merger of 18 school districts. As expected, that set off opposition in those districts. While consolidation is generally supported philosophically, it is not when it hits
close to home. Everything from racial issues, local politics and jobs to sports teams to community pride come into play. While many see consolidation as a cost-saving move, that is secondary to its value of improving education. Many smaller and some failing districts would benefit from merger with those that are financially and academically stronger. Administrative salaries could be reduced, but more savings could come by consolidating basic operational and administrative functions. State Superintendent of Education Tom Burnham said looking at consolidating administrative functions, even without merging districts, was something the panel should have studied more. He is right. State universities now are looking for savings by consolidating so-called
“backshop” functions. Merging such functions as purchasing, food services, transportation and professional services would save money. School districts should be doing that now. In the end, there are many hurdles to consolidation. Will legislators actually vote to consolidate a local school district? Right now there is no state authority to do so. Will lawmakers give that authority to the State Board? Can mergers overcome Voting Rights challenges where school boards and superintendents are elected? These are big obstacles. Still, Mississippi has too many school districts and, because of that, too many substandard schools. That problem must be faced regardless of local political controversies.
Barbour opts to champion the oil industry The Sun Herald, Gulfport/Biloxi: The people most threatened by the BP oil spill can be excused for having an uncharacteristic feeling of hopelessness because many of the people presumably responsible for dealing with this disaster appear to be inexcusably clueless about what to do, onshore as well as offshore. This inexcusable situation came into sharp focus for us on May 27. City and county officials told us their constituents were nervous, frustrated, uncertain and alarmed.
Reflecting similar concerns of his constituents, Rep. Charlie Melancon, D-La., fought back tears to tell his colleagues at a congressional hearing that: “Our culture is threatened and our coastal economies are at stake of being lost for decades if we can’t deflect this poison. ... Even though this marsh surrounds Louisiana, these are America’s wetlands.” Contrast that gut-wrenching emotion with Gov. Haley Barbour’s press conference in Biloxi on the same day. In his opening remarks, the governor com-
mented on the “top kill” maneuver to stop the oil leak and then went on at length about the need to permit the oil industry to do more drilling in the shallower waters of the Gulf. No tears for the environment. No passion for the defense of the Coast. Just advocacy for more drilling. Why has the man who championed Mississippi’s recovery and renewal following Hurricane Katrina inexplicably surrendered leadership in this disaster to Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana?
PSC correctly rethought coal plan proposal The Clarion-Ledger, Jackson: It is rare that a decision by the Public Service Commission to allow a utility to potentially collect more from consumers is positive news, but in the case of the proposed Kemper County coal plant, it is the right course. The PSC on May 26 reversed an earlier ruling putting restrictions on how much Mississippi Power Co. could collect from ratepayers to finance construction. The PSC had approved Mississippi Power’s plan to build the $2.4 billion plant, but had put stringent caps on that amount. Mississippi Power Co. President Anthony Topazi had said the company could not get financing based on those restrictions and could not proceed. Mississippi Power announced May 27 it would now proceed based on the PSC decision.
The PSC on May 26 agreed to raise that cap by 20 percent to cover potential construction overruns, but would require review of any excess charges. It also made allowances for construction weather delays. This is new territory for the PSC or a Mississippi utility. The Legislature approved a law allowing utilities, which now can recoup construction costs, to collect rates in advance of a new power plant opening to help finance construction. The Kemper County coal project would be the first. Mississippi Power said that without the law, it would not be possible to build such a plant. The utility says consumers will benefit in the long run because it will provide a stable, low-cost fuel source rather than relying on natural gas. The decision was attacked on environmental grounds, but it is an acceptable
compromise that allows the project to proceed while not giving an openended ability to raise rates to Mississippi Power. Mississippi Power is in line for federal incentives for the project. The plant is opposed by the Sierra Club, the NAACP and by the power plant’s private competitors. It is supported by major business groups, local officials and Gov. Haley Barbour. The Kemper project has potential to provide a long-term source of affordable energy, while providing a major economic development push for a distressed part of the state. It uses a plentiful Mississippi resource that, until now, has been of little value. The Kemper County plant is expected to begin generating power by 2014. It is an innovative project that is good for the future economic health of the state.

Reminder: Hollywood did visit Hiwassee It might have been the only time a movie’s world premiere was a special midnight showing at a drive-in theater to allow second-shift factory workers a share of the excitement. Fifty years ago in Bradley County, Tenn., throngs of eager locals drove to Cleveland’s Star-Vue and paid $1 to see Elia Kazan’s new movie “Wild River.” The advertisement beckoned: “See your friends and neighbors” on the big screen. And it hinted movie stars might show up for the premiere. Today, Charleston, Tenn., is hosting a 50th anniversary celebration of the movie that brought Hollywood stars like Montgomery Clift and Lee Remick to the area. “Wild River” showRHETA cased the Hiwassee gRIMSLEY River and Bradley County, not to mention Alabama author William Bradford Huie’s first novel, “Mud on the Stars.” Huie told the poignant story of a family forced from their island home when the Tennessee Valley Authority floods the valley. Aptly enough, it’s another working man, second-shift welder David Swafford of Cleveland, whose hard work and fascination with all things “Wild River” that made the event possible. “I took my mom on a Sunday drive to the movie location where the ferry is,” Swafford says. “I stopped at a convenience store to ask about the place and approached three people. The first said, ‘Son, you are in Charleston, Tenn. There ain’t never been no movie filmed here. There ain’t nothing here.’” The second person had never heard of “Wild River,” and the third said the movie had been filmed in another county. That was enough to convince Swafford that the county’s role in cinematic history would be lost in a haze if people weren’t reminded soon. So, despite getting off work at 2 a.m., the enthusiastic welder and movie buff began researching and planning. There’s a website — www.wildrivercelebration.com — that lists movie facts he has found along the way. “Wild River” was the first movie filmed entirely on location in Tennessee. As many as 200 people lined Charleston streets each day to watch the filming. Coon Denton Island was chosen as the primary location two years before filming began. Kazan flew 650 miles up and down the Tennessee River, from Paducah, Ky., to Muscle Shoals, Ala., looking for an appropriate location. When he saw Coon Denton Island on the Hiwassee, he knew he’d found the spot. The ferry, pivotal to the plot, has been in operation 150 years. Free ferry rides are part of the festival, as well as continuous showings of “Wild River.” A delightfully humble Swafford, who also is working on a book and documentary, credits his mother with helping him research the project. The two of them drove to Wesleyan University in Connecticut to peruse five boxes of notes Kazan kept on “Wild River.” He’s received help from local historians Ron and Debbie Moore, who invited Swafford to be the first guest on a radio show called “Old Town Cleveland.” Letters and phone calls resulted, many of them from the 200 local people who had movie parts 50 years ago. Swafford also has become good friends with Huie’s widow, Martha, whom he calls “the smartest woman in the world.” And once again, for a time, Hollywood is heavy on the minds of working folks in Tennessee. •

GAZA SHOWDOWN LOOMS
Dutchman in Peru to face murder charges
Israel vows to stop Irish ship
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
LIMA, Peru — The young Dutchman long suspected in a U.S. teen’s Caribbean island disappearance was delivered to Peru on Friday to face charges in the murder of a 21-year-old woman found with her neck broken in his Lima hotel room. Joran van der Sloot told Chilean police questioners he did not kill Stephany Flores but did say that Joran “he met her van der Sloot and at some point they went to a casino,” said Fernando Ovalle, a Chilean police spokesman. In Peru, murder carries a prison sentence of up to 35 years. Van der Sloot remains the prime suspect in the May, 30, 2005 disappearance — five years to the day of Flores’ murder — of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway on the Dutch island of Aruba. Long a fixture on TV truecrime shows, he now faces criminal charges in the United States of trying to extort $250,000 from Holloway’s family in exchange for revealing the location of Holloway’s body and describing the circumstances of her death. U.S. prosecutors charged van der Sloot with the crime on Thursday, saying $15,000 had been transferred to a Netherlands bank account in his name.
Panama asks France to extradite Noriega PANAMA CITY, Panama — Panama requested Friday that France extradite ex-dictator Manuel Noriega, bringing hope to those who have demanded for two decades that he face justice at home for alleged tortures and killings of their relatives. Authorities in France, where Noriega faces moneylaundering charges, are reviewing the request, said Vladimir Franco, judicial affairs chief with Panama’s Exterior Relations Ministry. Noriega has already been sentenced to 60 years in prison in Panama after he was convicted in absentia of embezzlement, corruption and murdering opponents during his eight-year rule.
JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel vowed Friday to keep an Irish aid ship from breaching its blockade of the impoverished Gaza Strip, appealing to proPalestinian activists to dock at an Israeli port and avoid another showdown at sea. The new effort to break the blockade will test Israel’s resolve as it faces a wave of international outrage over its deadly naval raid of another aid ship earlier this week. Activists on board the Irish boat, including a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, insisted they would not resist if Israeli soldiers tried to take over their vessel. They said they expected the 1,200-ton Rachel Corrie to reach Gaza by early this morning. Diplomatic fallout and protests across Europe and the Muslim world have increased pressure to end the embargo Israel imposed after the Islamic militant Hamas group seized power in Gaza three years ago. The blockade has plunged the territory’s 1.5 million residents deeper into poverty and sharply raised Mideast tensions as the U.S. makes a new push for regional peace. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet on Thursday the Irish boat would not be allowed to reach Gaza. On Friday, Israel’s foreign minister said the policy had not changed. “We have made it clear to the Irish and others, no ship will reach Gaza without a security inspection,” Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Channel 1 TV. The Cambodian-flagged Rachel Corrie — named for an American college student who was crushed to death by a bulldozer in 2003 while protesting Israeli house demolitions in Gaza — was carrying hundreds of tons of aid, including wheelchairs, medical supplies and cement. This latest attempt to breach the blockade differs significantly from the flotilla the Israeli troops intercepted on Monday, killing eight Turks and an American after being set upon by a group of activists. Nearly 700 activists had joined that operation, most of them aboard the lead boat from Turkey that was the scene of the violence. That boat, the Mavi Marmara, was
S. Korea seeks action against North Korea UNITED NATIONS — South Korea officially referred North Korea to the United Nations Security Council Friday over the sinking of a navy ship that killed 46 sailors and urged the U.N.’s most powerful body to take action. South Korea’s U.N. Ambassador Park In-kook gave a letter to Mexico’s U.N. Ambassador Claude Heller, the current Security Council president, asking for a response. “North Korea must admit its wrongdoing” and “pledge to never again engage in such a reprehensible action,” President Lee Myung-bak said. “If the enemy continues to taunt us and think that they can do whatever they want they must understand that there is a limit.”
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama intends to nominate the Pentagon’s top intelligence official, James Clapper, as the next national intelligence director, a senior administration official said James Friday.

U.S. admits queen’s birthday blunder WASHINGTON — The State Department has conceded committing a diplomatic faux pas by sending birthday greetings to Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II a week early. Spokesman P.J. Crowley said Friday’s message from Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton wished the queen well on her 84th birthday and honored the “special relationship” between the U.S. and Britain was premature. The queen’s actual birthday is April 21.

A Palestinian flag is seen atop a fishing boat belonging to Palestinians at the port in Gaza City on Friday . sponsored by an Islamic aid group from Turkey, the Foundation for Human Rights and Freedom and Humanitarian Relief. Israel outlawed the group, known by its Turkish acronym IHH, in 2008 because of alleged ties to Hamas. The group is not on the U.S. State Department list of terror organizations, however. By contrast, the Rachel Corrie was carrying just 11 passengers, whose effort was mainly sponsored by the Free Gaza movement, a Cyprus-based group that has renounced violence. Irish Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mairead Corrigan told The Associated Press from the ship Friday that the group would offer no resistance if Israeli forces came aboard. “We will sit down,” she said in a telephone interview. “They will probably arrest us ... But there will be no resistance.” Netanyahu has instructed the Israeli military to avoid harming the passengers on board the Irish boat, a participant at Thursday night’s Cabinet meeting said. He spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting was
More than 160 die of lead poisoning LAGOS, Nigeria — More than 160 poor villagers from Nigeria’s north died from lead poisoning while trying to leach gold from rock deposits, sparking evacuations as health officials try to come to grips with a crisis six months in the making, authorities said Friday. Dr. Henry Akpan, Nigeria’s chief epidemiologist, said 100 of the dead were children from five villages in Zamfara state, a near-desert region of the Sahel that has seen a growing food crisis over recent weeks.

closed. Foreign Ministry director Yossi Gal urged the activists to dock in the southern Israeli port of Ashdod and promised to transfer all cargo except any weapons or weapons components to Gaza. But the activists resisted the appeal. Israel has “no desire to board the ship,” Gal told reporters. “If the ship decides to sail to the port of Ashdod, then we will ensure its safe arrival and will not board it.” Corrigan said the activists would “not be diverted anywhere else. We head to Gaza in order to deliver the humanitarian aid and to break the siege of Gaza.”

Stocks tumble on disappointing jobs report NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks tumbled Friday after the Labor Department said hiring remains weak and Hungary became the latest European country to report its economy is in crisis. Interest rates dropped as investors moved money into the safety of Treasury bonds. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 323 points, its third worst slide of the year. The index closed below 10,000 for the second time in two weeks. All the major indexes were down more than 3 percent. The concerns about Hungary pounded the euro to a four-year low. The drop pushed major stock indexes back into “correction” mode, meaning a decline of at least 10 percent from recent highs. Retailers were among the hardest hit stocks after investors bet that a weak job market would discourage consumers from spending. Financial stocks also fell sharply on concerns that borrow-
In Manhattan, I eat at a deli called Sarge’s on Third Avenue, which has been in the same location for 40-plus years. During the recession, they started doing something different. The waitress said, “Would you like some complimentary goose liver or egg salad and bread?” She brings the extras with a huge plate of free slaw and pickles, which Sarge’s has always offered). I watch happy customers leaving with doggie bags. If a customer knows you will give them more than they pay for and offer them quality and courtesy, they will keep coming back — even in a recession. •

Banks were further hurt by worries about their vulnerability to Europe’s increasing troubles. The government’s May jobs report was an unpleasant surprise for investors who had grown a little more upbeat about the domestic economy the past few days. The Labor Department said private employers hired just 41,000 jobs in May, down dramatically from 218,000 in April and the lowest number since January. The news made it clear that the economic recovery isn’t yet picking up the momentum that investors have been looking for. The government said 431,000 jobs over-
Walmart plans to hire 500,000 over five years FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Walmart Stores Inc.’s CEO told shareholders Friday that the company is positioning itself for 20 years of worldwide growth and that it plans to hire a half-million employees over the next five years. The company also unveiled a $15 billion stock buyback. But it was short on specifics on how it will turn around weak business at its U.S. Walmart stores as the rest of the retail industry, including its key competitor Target Corp., has started to heat up.

Economists polled by Thomson Reuters had forecast employers would add 513,000 jobs. The unemployment rate fell to 9.7 percent from 9.9 percent in April. That was slightly better than the 9.8 percent unemployment rate economists had forecast. The jobs report was the latest in a series this week that showed the economy isn’t as robust as hoped. But investors had sent stocks higher as they bet on stronger job growth in May. The reality of the report erased that optimism. “It’s almost as if the worst fears of the market were realized, at least in this one report,” said Richard Sparks, senior equities analyst at Schaeffer’s Investment Research.

Millionaire’s rocket blasts off on 1st try CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — A multimillionaire’s test rocket has blasted off on its maiden voyage. SpaceX’s brand new Falcon 9 rocket soared off its Cape Canaveral launch pad Friday afternoon. It’s carrying a mock-up of the company’s spacecraft, named Dragon. The goal is to put the capsule into orbit. NASA hopes to use the Falcon-Dragon combo for hauling cargo and possibly astronauts to the International Space Station, once the shuttles stop flying.

DR. GEORGE AT WORK Q: I own a grocery store in Vicksburg. People are buying less these days, but still shop here. How do I attract more customDR. GEORGE R. ers? — Food for Thought A: The most important thing you can do is keep your regular customers. A successful Vicksburg grocery owner, who ran the Sunflower on Openwood Street, once told me the secret to his success: give customers more than they pay for. For example, if he had a new brand of cookies, he would give a regular customer — and even a new one — a complimentary bag and say, “Try these cookies. They are brand new, and my wife (the former Mabel Ellis of Vicksburg) and I love them.”

Ferris Continued from Page A1. ognized him as Chevalier and Officer in the Order of Arts and Letters and the American Library Association has awarded him a Dartmouth Medal. Still, Ferris said the Lifetime Achievement Award he will receive today is perhaps the most special, as it comes from those who are most special to him. “To me, what it means is your people at home appreciate what you’ve done, and that’s really the highest achievement I think a person can reach,” said Ferris, who has always traced the inspiration for his life’s work back to the family farm where his mother still lives and where he grew up, located about 15 miles south of Vicksburg off Fisher Ferry Road. Since 1988, the MIAL has handed out a Lifetime Achievement Award just 15 times. It’s the rarest MIAL award, and one of very few that is not necessarily given out each year, but only when the board decides someone is deserving of the distinction. Since Eudora Welty was given the first, other recipients have included Walter Anderson, Shelby Foote, Morgan Freeman, Leontyne Price and Ellen Douglas. “Once we started talking about a Lifetime Achieve-
PRECISION FORECAST ment Award for Bill everybody was really enthusiastic about it, because he certainly has had an outstanding career that has highlighted Mississippi arts and culture,” said Robbins. “Our only hesitation was, well, he’s a little young and we don’t think he’s done yet.” At a spry 68, Ferris said he doesn’t think he’s done either. “I don’t feel like the journey is finished,” he said. “I have plans to publish another book that I’m working on. It’s a collection of interviews I’ve done over the years with Southern writers and artists. It will be very similar in format to the blues book.” Published last fall, Ferris’ latest book is his most comprehensive project to date. Combining his love of Mississippi folklore, history and music, the raw interviews with his subjects — ranging from blues legends BB King and Vicksburg-native Willie Dixon to preachers, prisoners, farmhands and lesserknown Mississippi musicians — are presented in a multimedia format providing tangible insight into the history and culture of the blues in Mississippi. Later this month, “Give My Poor Heart Ease” will be included in Amazon’s
first generation of multimedia electronic books, which will allow readers to click on certain portions of the text to hear excerpts from field recordings Ferris captured decades ago on a Sony Super 8 camera and battery-powered reel-to-reel recorder. “Being able to go back and finish the work that I started in the ’60s — and being able to present it now in this multimedia format — that has really been a fun and gratifying experience,” Ferris said. “My desire is to see it all complete.” Another of Ferris’ lifelong passions has been teaching, and in that area, again, Ferris said he’s got no intention of slowing down anytime soon. “For me that is my retirement,” he said. “I learn from my students as much as I teach them. As long as I’m healthy and have my wits about me I want to stay in the classroom and continue to write.” At the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Ferris each fall teaches one class on Southern music, and in the spring he teaches a course on Southern literature and oral tradition. “So in a very real way, I never leave home,” he said. The road from the Ferris family farm in Warren
County to North Carolina has been a long and winding one. After attending public schools in Vicksburg, Ferris went east to attend prep school in Massachusetts at Brooks School and in 1964 received his bachelor of arts in English Literature from Davidson College. A year later, he earned a master’s degree from Northwestern University. From there, he went to Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, for a year, returning to complete his studies at the University of Pennsylvania, where he left in 1969 with a master’s and doctorate in Folklore. Ferris spent the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s writing and teaching, first at Jackson State University, then Yale University — where he co-founded the Center for Southern Folklore in Mississippi — and later Ole Miss. He spent 18 years in Oxford before being tapped in 1997 by Clinton to chair the NEH, a post he held through 2001. “I thought they’d made a mistake,” is how the perpetually modest Ferris recalled the call from the White House, “but I said I’d be honored.” Along with his wife, Marcie Cohen Ferris, and 24-yearold daughter, Virginia, Ferris will spend the majority of
this summer traveling to blues festivals and events across the United States and Europe to promote his book. In France, a three-day event will focus solely on Ferris’ book, field recordings and photographs. When ruminating over the totality of his life’s work thus far, Ferris quite naturally deflects personal accomplishments and shines the light instead on his old home. He talks of a recent visit to Vicksburg’s newest Mississippi Blues Trail marker in Marcus Bottom with his daughter, and said nothing gives him more pleasure than to see the oftenoverlooked heroes of history getting the recognition they deserve. “For me to go through Marcus Bottom and the rest of the city now and see these beautiful plaques honoring the people who shaped my own experience — people like Milt Hinton, Willie Dixon and The Red Tops — I feel like I’ve finally arrived,” Ferris said. “Ultimately, I’m the proudest of being able to help preserve some of that history, and that we are recognizing and embracing the roots of who we are as Vicksburgers.”
The city agreed to the contract price with Kanzaa last summer, but did not have all the funding in place to get the work started because the cost had nearly doubled since officials set aside $5 million of a $16.9 million bond fund for the work in 2006. Originally under former Mayor Laurence Leyens, city officials began looking to fill the $4 million funding gap in early 2009. With Winfield in office and a Kanzaa-imposed April 1 deadline to get the deal signed, the mayor and aldermen voted in late March to rededicate $3.7 in bond funds — also from the 2006 loan — to the tunnel project. The bond funds were originally earmarked for paving projects in the North Ward and the final phase of the developing sports complex on Fisher Ferry Road. They
will be replenished if a $4 million federal earmark the city formally requested of local legislators in February comes through. The appropriation has made it through committees in both the U.S. House and the Senate, and Winfield has said he expects to know this summer if it will get full approval. “We definitely need support of our federal delegates, because we need to get those funds,” he said. Even after the bond funds were shuffled and the tunnel funding was in place, officials saw a few last minute delays. They originally predicted a mid-April ground-breaking date, and later pushed it back a month due to final contract negotiations. For the past two months, Thames said they’ve been waiting on KCS and Kanzaa to deliver
the contract that he finally received Friday morning. “When it saw it on my desk this morning, I got as giddy as a high school kid,” Thames said. Winfield gave a spirited round of high-fives to his staff members after adjourning the meeting Friday. Phase one of the project will include the creation of a temporary city street running parallel to the DiamondJacks Casino entrance off Washington Street, just south of the derelict bridge. The casino entrance will be widened into three lanes, two for city traffic and one for casino patrons. The street will connect with Lee Street and will become the new official detour until the tunnel is complete. The tunnel will be finished in phase two, which is expected to start
six months after the groundbreaking.

Ohio teenager wins National Spelling Bee WASHINGTON (AP) — No theatrical flourishes for Anamika Veeramani. She kept her hands behind her back and rattled off the letters of every word she was given — until she was crowned the spelling bee champion. The 14-year-old girl from North Royalton, Ohio, won the 83rd Scripps National Spelling Bee on Friday, acing the medical word “stromuhr” to claim the winner’s trophy and more than $40,000 in cash and prizes. Anamika became the third consecutive Indian-American bee champion, and the eighth the last 12 years. It’s a run that began when Nupur Lala won in 1999 and was featured in the documentary “Spellbound.” Anamika was one of the favorites among the 273 spellers who began the threeday competition, having finished tied for fifth last year. She stood deadpan while the audience cheered, not cracking a smile until the trophy was presented. Anamika survived the round by spelling “juvia” — a Brazil nut — and then had to wait for a nerve-racking 3 1/2-minute commercial before spelling the championship word. The finals were preceded by an unpopular move that had

Concerned that there wouldn’t be enough spellers left to fill the two-hour slot on ABC, organizers stopped the semifinals in the middle of a round Friday afternoon — and declared that the 10 spellers onstage would advance to the prime-time broadcast, including six who didn’t have to spell a word in the interrupted round. Essentially, the alphabetical order of the U.S. states helped determine which spellers got to move on the marquee event.
Opening statements in Blago trial may come Tuesday CHICAGO — The federal judge presiding over Rod Blagojevich’s corruption trial said Friday opening statements may come as early as Tuesday and refused to delay them for even one day so the former Illinois governor and his wife could attend his daughter’s grammar school graduation. James B. Zagel questioned 59 potential jurors over the first two days of the trial and dropped 20 of them on Friday over objections from prosecutors and defense attorneys that they were unqualified in one way or another to serve or that they would face to great a hardship. Zagel was expected to question about 30 more on Monday and then whittle the final panel down to 12 jurors plus an unspecified number of alternates Tuesday morning before launching into opening statements. Blagojevich was in his second term as governor when he was arrested 18 months ago at his home on the North Side of Chicago. He and his co-defendant — his brother, Nashville, Tenn., businessman Robert Blagojevich, 54 — have pleaded not guilty to scheming to sell or trade the Senate seat Obama left to move to the White House after his November 2008 election and to illegally pressuring political contributors.

Soldier charged with killing Afghan civilians JOINT BASE LEWISMCCHORD, Wash. — The Army said Friday a soldier has been charged with murder in three Afghan civilian deaths. A statement from the Army said Specialist Jeremy Morlock had been charged with three counts of premeditated murder and one count of assault. Morlock, 22, of Wasilla, Alaska, is an infantryman assigned to B Company, 2nd
Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment, 5th Stryker Brigade Combat Team. He entered the military in June 2006 and received initial entry training and advanced individual training at Fort Benning, Ga. About 10 members of an Army unit based at Fort Lewis, Wash., have been under investigation for as many as three civilian deaths in Afghanistan, along with other potential wrongdoing, a senior military official said last month.
Porn actor charged with murder in Calif. LOS ANGELES — A porn

Prosecutors say they charged 34-year-old Stephen Clancy Hill on Friday with one count of murder and five counts of attempted murder. Authorities say Hill went on a rampage after being told he was being fired and would have to move out of the production facility where he had been living.
Natural gas, fluids spew from blown-out Pa. well PENFIELD, Pa. — A blowout at a natural-gas well in a remote area shot explosive gas and polluted water as high as 75 feet into the air before crews were able to tame it more than half a day later, officials said Friday. The gas never caught fire, and no injuries were reported, but state officials worried about an explosion before the well could be controlled. The well was brought under control just after noon Friday, about 16 hours after it started spewing gas and brine, said Elizabeth Ivers, a spokeswoman for driller
Continued from Page A1. sure that they’re paying for it.” Obama’s visit came as engineers with BP worked to settle a funnel-like cap over the deep-sea leak to try to collect some of the crude now fouling four states. It was not clear how much oil was being captured, and some continued to flow, generating frightening photos of seabirds clogged in the muck. The oil rig that exploded on April 20 has caused a massive, ongoing spill that is polluting the waters and shores of the Gulf states and consuming the attention of the president. Obama scrapped a trip to Indonesia and Australia to deal with it — no small international sacrifice, especially since he had already resorted to that move once before this year to finish a health care law. Yet in unleashing his most fiery words yet about BP, Obama underscored his awkward situation: To fix the problem, he is reliant on the same people whose motives he now questions. The government is not equipped to handle the tricky, deepwater effort BP is leading to fix its gushing well. From his briefing outside New Orleans, Obama bounded on a two-hour-plus motorcade drive to Grand Isle, a small barrier island, to hear from the people. The weather made the trip feel fittingly hard. A driving rain forced him to drop plans to travel by helicopter. Just ahead of the Gulf visit, he declared himself furious at a situation that “is imperiling an entire way of life and an entire region for potentially years.” He criticized BP for not responding more quickly. But polls show the public growing more negative toward the president’s own handling of the spill, and he was aiming to demonstrate he was staying on top of the situation Friday — without getting in the way. Obama visited the Gulf region twice in May, and this tour surely will not be his last. “We’ll keep on coming back until we have dealt with an unprecedented crisis,” Obama promised. Somewhere between 22 million and 47 million gallons of crude oil has been disgorged into the Gulf since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded on April 20, according to government estimates.

Unity key in fighting drinking problems Q: My husband drinks excessively. Aside from getting help for my family, what should I do for him? He is deep in denial, and I’m not even sure he’s thinking right now. He couldn’t make a rational decision to save his life. A: You’re right about the difficulties you face. Begging won’t accomplish anything, and your husband will be dead before he admits he has a problem. Indeed, thousands die each year while denying that they are alcoholics. That’s why AlAnon FOCUS ON teaches THE FAMILY family members how to confront in love. They learn how to remove the support systems that prop up the disease and permit it to thrive. They are shown how and when to impose ultimatums that force the alcoholic to admit his or her need for help. And sometimes they recommend separation until the victim is so miserable that his or her denial will no longer hold up. In essence, Al-Anon teaches its own version of the “love must be tough” philosophy to family members who must implement it. I asked one recovered alcoholic I know if he was forced to attend Alcoholics Anonymous — the program that put him on the road to recovery. He said: “Let me put it this way. No one goes to A.A. just because they’ve nothing better to do that evening. Everyone there has been forced to attend initially. You just don’t say, ‘On Monday night we watched a football game, and on Tuesday we went to the movies. So what will we do on Wednesday? How about going over to an A.A. meeting?’ It doesn’t work that way. Yes — I was forced — forced by my own misery. Pauline allowed me to be miserable for my own good. It was loving duress that moved me to attend.” Though it may sound easy to achieve, the loving confrontation that brought this man to his senses was a delicate maneuver. I must re-emphasize that families should not attempt to implement it on their own initiative. Without the training and assistance of professional support groups, the encounter could degenerate into a hateful, vindictive, namecalling battle that would serve only to solidify the drinker’s position. Al-Anon Family Groups and Alcoholics Anonymous are both listed in local phone books. Also to be found there is a number of the Council on Alcoholism, which can provide further guidance. •

TIGHTER TIMES REKINDLE TIES
Merger puts sister sisters in second act By The Associated Press ST. JOSEPH, Minn. — Sister Mary David Olheiser and Sister Helenette Baltes professed their vows together in 1936 as two of the 21 new sisters to join the Sisters of the Order of St. Benedict that year. At the time, their central Minnesota Roman Catholic monastery was overflowing with youth and energy. Sixty-two years later, the classmates and old friends are together again. St. Benedict is taking St. Bede back into its fold. The smaller group is facing demographic realities by closing its Wisconsin monastery and moving 29 remaining sisters back to Minnesota. “It’s just a blessing,” said Helenette, 94, of her reunion with the 92-year-old Mary David. It also reflects the massive changes in the lives of nuns in their lifetimes, as onceflourishing orders merge or close. A 2009 Georgetown University study for the National Religious Vocation Conference found the median age in Catholic women’s orders to be in the mid-70s, and that 34 percent of religious women’s orders surveyed had no new candidates for the sisterhood. About half of those orders with new candidates had at most one or two in the pipeline. When 83 nuns including Sister Helenette departed for Eau Claire in 1948, they left about 1,200 Benedictine nuns at the monastery in St. Joseph. Today there are about 250, a number that drops by about a hundred every 10 years. But it’s enough to make it the biggest Benedictine women’s order in the United States. The median age at St. Benedict is 77, the youngest nun there is 39 years old. “In the larger church, vocations to religious communities tend to rise and fall, and right now in most of the world there is a decline in young people entering religious life,” said St. Benedict Prioress Nancy Bauer, 57. “I would say there are numerous factors. It’s just how it is.” Helenette and Mary David are typical of the women once so common to sisterhood. Helenette was born in 1915, the seventh of 12 children in Sleepy Eye, where her father had recently moved the family after land-

A new Catholic Church had just opened there, and when the family couldn’t find a house, the priest offered room in the old church. “So that’s where I was born, right there in the church,” Helenette said. By her teen years, various relatives were urging Helenette to join a convent. Mary David was born in 1918 in Dickinson, N.D., the third of five children; her mother died when she was still a girl. “I was the middle child, with the middle child psychology — I was the assertive one,” Mary David recalled. She devoured books and loved learning, and took strongly to the Benedictine nuns who taught her at school. By the time she was 14, Mary David informed her father she wanted to attend the Benedectine-run boarding school next to the monastery in St. Joseph. By 17 she was a novice, after she convinced the nuns who ran the school to bend the rules that she was supposed to wait until she turned 18. Mary David and Helenette took their vows together in 1936. Soon after, Mary David left to work in a Benedictine monastery in Washing-

Helenette spent the next dozen years in St. Joseph, teaching music and playing the organ, before she
decided to join the group that was headed about 170 miles southeast to start a new monastery in Wisconsin. “That was a very difficult decision, the attachment to the convent where I made my vows,” Helenette said. “But the Holy Spirit led me there.” The group started from scratch, building first a monastery that won architectural awards, then a secondary school and a health care center. By the mid-1960s the
monastery reached a high point of 115 sisters. Then the numbers started to fall. The group closed its school in 1978 and converted it to a retreat and conference center that the sisters operated until earlier this year. Those facilities are now up for sale. In recent years, leaders of St. Bede’s began to discuss their options in the face of what Prioress Michaela Hedican called “some basic sociological shifting.” The dwindling group last took on a new member in 1995. The group approached several larger monasteries, but the historic connection to St. Benedict made it a good fit. The sisters of St. Benedict voted last August to absorb St. Bede. “We really felt it was a gift, to get that sort of infusion of new members all at once is something we haven’t experienced for many years,” said Sister Kara Hennes, 63, the St. Benedict treasurer. Recent years have seen mergers by numerous religious orders around the country; Sister Michaela called it “the wave of the future.” So far, six sisters of St. Bede, Helenette among them, moved to the Benedictine long-term care facility in St. Cloud; by August, most of the rest are scheduled to move into the monastery in St. Joseph, after which St. Bede formally will be “suppressed” in a Mass at the St. Benedict Chapel. The Washington, D.C.based National Religious Retirement Office started tracking the merger of Catholic orders in 1989, and in that time reports that about 130 female orders have merged and are now operating as about 45 orders, director Sister Janice Bader said. Mary David, who still lives at the monastery in St. Joseph, said she can’t wait to spend more time with her old friend. “Pretty soon I’ll probably be joining her there,” she said. Of the 29 returning St. Bede sisters, 11 were from the original group that moved to Wisconsin in 1948. Besides Helenette, another was Sister Therese Roth, who at 94 moved into the St. Scholastica care facility in Minnesota a few weeks ago. There, in her new home, Sister Therese died on May 22, and the number of remaining St. Bede sisters dropped from 29 to 28.
300-year legacy: Exhibit chronicles Catholic sisters in U.S. By The Associated Press Nursing nuns in the 1800s often traveled to their patients, as shone by the Women & Spirit exhibit’s display of an early medical bag complete with medications. Nuns, for the most part, customarily remain in the background, quietly working for the betterment of the community at large without bringing much attention to themselves. But the exhibit Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America reveals the profound impact many of these women — brave and innovative women — have had in shaping this country. The exhibit opened on Mother’s Day at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood, Ohio, where it continues until Aug. 28. Bring a hanky when you
The exhibit “Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America” reveals the profound impact many of these women — brave and innovative women — have had in shaping this country. come because some of the stories told by Women & Spirit are heartrending. The first 12 sisters arrived in New Orleans in 1727 after escaping pirates on their voyage to the New World. When the 1803 Louisiana Purchase made the New Orleans area part of the United States, those nuns wrote to President Thomas Jefferson seeking assurance that their property rights would be intact under the new government. A letter from Jefferson, seen in a prominent place in the exhibit, assured the sisters that they would be permitted self-governance with-
out interference from the government. Since those early years, nuns have been joined in this country by 220,000 others — many on missions of education and nursing, others caring for outcasts and orphans. They didn’t set out to be pioneers but persevered in the face of obstacles, believing that God would provide what was needed. Some of their most heroic deeds have been in the face of disaster. The aftermath of the deadly hurricane that claimed 6,000 lives in Galveston, Texas, is shown on some
of the earliest film made by Thomas Edison. Press a button and prepare to be amazed by the story. During that Sept. 8, 1900, storm the sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word went to great lengths to save the orphans they cared for by moving them to the second floor of the orphanage building as the storm worsened. Water had filled the first floor of the brick dormitory building when the sisters tied the 93 children to themselves with clothesline. The building collapsed, and when the hurricane was done, 90 children and 10 sisters were dead. Many of the children were found held tightly in the arms of the nuns and still tied to each other. It’s a legend that Sister Mary Ignatia Gavin, a sister of Charity of St. Augustine, was recovering from a dif-
ficult time in her own life when she proposed to the founders of Alcoholic Anonymous that a religious component was needed in the recovery program. During that time, in the 1930s, alcoholism was considered by society to be a moral failing, while the medical profession viewed it as incurable and fatal. She worked with AA co-founder Dr. Bob Smith to open the nation’s first hospital-based program for alcoholics at St. Thomas Hospital in Akron. She later opened Rosary Hall at St. Vincent Charity Hospital in Cleveland. Women & Spirit came here from Washington, D.C.’s Smithsonian Museum of American History and will travel in September to the Ellis Island Immigration Museum in New York City.

devotion “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends: for all things that I have heard of My Father I have made known unto you.” John 15:15 • What is the blessing of obedience? Intimacy with God. You will come to know things that you could never know any other way when you become intimate with God. And yet people are still asking, “How do I understand the Bible?” Friend, you will have a knowledge that surpasses anything you could gain from a school of learning when you serve the Lord in obedience. • Jesus said that we become his friends when we become his servants. And a friend knows all things. Amos 3:7 says, “SUrely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets.” • Have you stopped growing? Perhaps it is because you have stopped obeying. The way to have insight into the heart of God is through obedience.

Legendary UCLA coach Wooden dead at 99 By The Associated Press
Go the distance Colby Rasmus homers to lift the Cardinals past the struggling Brewers/C3
Stamm Family Invitational Today, 9 a.m., at City Pool
LOS ANGELES — John Wooden, college basketball’s gentlemanly Wizard of Westwood who built one of the greatest dynasties in all of sports at UCLA and became one of the most revered coaches ever, has died. He was 99. The university said Wooden died Friday night of natural causes at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where he had been hospitalized since May 26. With his signature rolledup game program in hand, Wooden led the Bruins to 10 NCAA championships, including an unmatched streak of seven in a row from
college basketball 1967 to 1973. Over 27 years, he won 620 games, including 88 straight during one historic stretch, and John coached many Wooden of the game’s greatest players such as Bill Walton and Lew Alcindor — later known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. As a coach, he was groundbreaking trendsetter who demanded his players be in great condition so they

could play an up-tempo style not well-known on the West Coast at the time. But the Wizard’s legacy extended well beyond that. He was the master of the simple one- or two-sentence homily, instructive little messages best presented in his famous “Pyramid of Success,” which remains mustread material, not only for fellow coaches but for anyone in a leadership position in American business. He taught the team game and had only three hard-andfast rules — no profanity, tardiness or criticizing fellow teammates. Layered beneath that seeming simplicity, though, were a slew of life lessons — primers on every-

finish. His best finish at Pocono was fourth in 2005, and he hasn’t finished higher than 16th over the last two years. “It would mean a lot,” Busch said when asked about getting a win in his milestone start. “This is a place I’ve struggled at ... You can come around here and it can be really, really frustrating at this place because it is so long, you can beat your head against the headrest.” Busch won his second pole of the season, claiming victory at Richmond last month after starting up front. Clint Bowyer was qualified second, while Dale Earnhardt, Jr., was third. Jeff Burton qualified 13th. Busch and Burton had a run-in during last week’s race at Charlotte after Busch’s late error sent Burton tumbling to a 25thplace finish.
Asked in a 2008 interview the secret to his long life, Wooden replied: “Not being afraid of death and having peace within yourself. All of life is peaks and valleys. Don’t let the peaks get too high and the valleys too low.” Asked what he would like God to say when he arrived at the pearly gates, Wooden replied, “Well done.” Even with his staggering accomplishments, he remained humble and gracious. He said he tried to live by advice from his father: “Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply
The road to Omaha
LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — Kyle Busch will start his 200th career Sprint Cup race at the front of the field. Winner of two of the last four races, Busch turned a lap at 169.485 mph Friday to win the pole for Sunday’s NASCAR race at Pocono Raceway and extend a midseason hot streak that has lifted him to second in the points standings. Now the driver that fans love to hate hopes to parlay his first pole at the 2.5 mile-long Tricky TriKyle angle into a Busch respectable
thing from how to put on your socks correctly to how to maintain poise: “Not being thrown off stride in how you behave or what you believe because of outside events.” “What you are as a person is far more important that what you are as a basketball player,” was one of Wooden’s key messages. Wooden began his career as a teacher during the Great Depression and was still teaching others long past retirement. He remained a fixture at UCLA games played on a court named after him and his late wife, Nell, and celebrated his 99th birthday with a book he coauthored on how to live life and raise children.

Rebels roll Red Storm By The Associated Press CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Drew Pomeranz scattered seven hits over seven-plus innings and Ole Miss beat St. John’s 10-5 Friday night in the Charlottesville Regional. The Rebels (39-22) advanced to play host Virginia in a winner’s bracket game today, while the Red Storm (40-19) will take on Virginia Commonwealth in an elimination game. Pomeranz (9-2), expected to be one of the top picks in Monday’s amateur draft, got all the runs he needed in the second on a grounder by Kevin Mort and a triple by Tanner Mathis. He cruised into the eighth, when a leadoff single and
walk caused Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco to bring Eric Callender on. Jeremy Blatz hit Callender’s first pitch for a long, three-run home run to left to make it 7-3, but the reliever retired the next three hitters. Kyle Hansen (8-2) allowed seven hits and six runs in four innings for St. John’s, which added two runs and had the bases loaded with two out in the ninth before Rory McKean replaced Callender and got Jimmy Parque to ground out to end it. Pomeranz threw 112 pitches and finished with five strikeouts and three walks. The Rebels padded their lead on solo home runs by Miles Hamblin in the third
and Alex Yarbrough in the fourth, and a two-run shot by Tim Ferguson, also in the fourth. A sacrifice fly by Yarbrough in the fifth made it 7-0, and the Rebels got their final runs on a bases-loaded walk to Matt Snyder and Taylor Hashman’s two-run single in the eighth. Pomeranz allowed five hits through his first four innings, including a double leading off the third by Scott Ferrara. The lefty then helped himself by snaring a comebacker by Matt Wessinger, wheeling and catching Ferrara off the base. His throw to shortstop Mort was perfect, allowing Mort to tag Ferrara out and then fire to first to complete a double play.
AUBURN, Ala. — For the first time this season, Southern Miss pitcher Scott Copeland took a loss as No. 20 Clemson defeated No. 27 Southern Miss 10-1 in the opening game of the Auburn Regional. Clemson struck for the game’s first runs in the bottom of the first as Mike Freeman placed a RBI double into the left-centerfield gap and then came around to score later on a sacrifice fly for an early 2-0 lead. The Tigers tried to pad their lead in the bottom of the second as they loaded the bases with no outs. But Copeland (11-1) induced a 5-2-3 double play ball, then coaxed a weak ground ball, to end the threat without any runs scoring. Southern Miss cut the Clemson lead in half in the top of the fifth as Joey
college baseball Archer doubled to lead off the frame and came around to score on Tyler Koelling’s RBI double to make the score 2-1. The Tigers answered with a solo home run by Will Lamb in the bottom of the fifth and a RBI single by Kyle Parker to put the Tigers up 4-1. Clemson blew the game open in the bottom of the sixth on a solo home run by John Hinson to increase the lead to 5-1 before Copeland left the game with runners on the corners. Lamb added a RBI single and Jeff Schaus platted two more with a twoRBI single through the right side off Cody Schlagel. The third Golden Eagle pitcher of the inning, Mandella Mingo, uncorked a wild pitch to allow the fifth run of the inning.

Baseball replay idea draws fire By The Associated Press
The associated press
Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland, third from left, yells at first base umpire Jim Joyce, right, as umpires Jim Wolf (78), left, and home plate umpire Marvin Hudson (51), intervene Wednesday.
A bouncing ball to the right side of the infield, a flip to the bag, a surprising safe call by the umpire, and a furious manager. Nah, not the play in Detroit. We’ve seen that enough. This one came a few hours later in Seattle, far from the eye of a sports media storm. “The replays showed he’s out, bottom line,” Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire fumed after the winning run on that disputed play Wednesday night. “It’s all out there for you, just go watch the replays.”
mlb Which is exactly what Major League Baseball intends to do. Stung by the blown call that cost Armando Galarraga a perfect game, commissioner Bud Selig said he would look at the big picture — the possibility of expanding the use of video reviews. The subject is certain to get addressed when Selig’s blueribbon panel holds its next meeting on Thursday. “I guarantee it,” said Los Angeles Dodgers manager Joe Torre, part of the specially picked committee. “I’m
sure it’s going to be added to the agenda.” And so starts another great debate in baseball. “There are so many close calls in a game, so where do you draw the line?” Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle wondered. “Stolen bases, guys tagged out at home, so many plays at first base that are bang-bang plays, where do you draw the line?” Added New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter: “When does it stop, when does it start? Do you have a flag that you throw from the See Replay, Page C3.

Cardinals blank Brewers Replay
Continued from Page C1. bench for challenges?” Heck, how about having a computer-simulated box call balls-and-strikes, like they do on TV? “I don’t know about that instant replay stuff. We might as well just build robots and put ’em out there,” Washington slugger Adam Dunn said. Remember, it was a rash of missed calls in the middle of the 2008 season that prompted baseball to join the electronic-eye age within a few months — the NFL, NBA, NHL, NCAA, NASCAR and Grand Slam tennis already used replay in some form by then. For now, only questionable home run calls get a second look. But after a postseason filled with umpiring mistakes, the admission by Jim Joyce that he botched what should’ve been the final out in Galarraga’s gem might spur more action. “I think that’s going to be the play that brings instant replay into baseball,” fan Jeff Corr said at Fenway Park. A day after the Twins lost on that 10th-inning play at second base, Gardenhire had calmed down. “I’m not going to get
By The Associated Press Adam Wainwright threw a complete game and Colby Rasmus drilled a two-run homer to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to an 8-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. Wainwright (8-3), in his 98th career start, gave up two hits in the first complete-game shutout of his career. He struck out eight, walked one, and retired the last 18 hitters he faced after a leadoff walk to Prince Fielder in the fourth inning. Wainwright is 5-0 at home and has allowed just two earned runs in his last three starts covering 21 innings. St. Louis won for the sixth time in eight games and broke a four-game home losing streak against the Brewers, who have won 13 of their last 17 at Busch Stadium. Milwaukee lost for the fifth time in six games. Rasmus pounded his ninth homer of the season in the sixth to put St. Louis up 4-0. Albert Pujols drove in two runs, one on a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the third — his 152nd career RBI with the bases loaded.
Astros 3, Cubs 1 Felipe Paulino struck out seven in eight effective innings, outpitching Carlos Zambrano and helping the Houston Astros beat the Chicago Cubs for their fourth straight win. Michael Bourn had three hits and scored twice as the Astros finally provided enough offense to get Paulino his first win. Lance Berkman drove in two runs.

Flyers roll over Chicago PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Mike Richards, Matt Carle and Claude Giroux all scored firstperiod goals and the Philadelphia Flyers hung on to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 on Friday night to even the Stanley Cup finals at 2-all. Game 5 is Sunday night in Chicago. Jeff Carter scored an emptynetter in the final seconds to help the Flyers become the first team this series to win a game by more than one goal. The Flyers, trying to win their first title since 1975, nearly let the win slip away in the third. Leading 4-1 early in the period, Chicago’s Dave Bolland and Brian Campbell scored late goals to slice the deficit to one. The home team has won all four games this series — a factor that certainly favors the Blackhawks in Game 5. Ville Leino also scored for the Flyers. After the Blackhawks won a key faceoff, Bolland sent one past Michael Leighton for Chicago’s first power-play goal of the game. They entered 0 for 6 and went 1 for 3 in Game 4. The goal energized the Blackhawks. They didn’t look beat down from having to rally and fight the Flyers for most of the first 60 minutes. Campbell made it 4-3 when his shot appeared to deflect off Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen’s stick, and silenced the Flyers crowd. His first goal of the series was upheld after a brief review and gave the Blackhawks a glimmer of hope for a monster upset. Chicago pulled Antti Niemi for the man-advantage but Carter slid in the empty-netter and tense crowd exhaled.

Watkins’ double lifts LSU to win From staff reports Trey Watkins scorched a walk-off two-RBI double in the bottom of the 11th inning to lift the second-seed LSU Tigers to a 11-10 victory over thirdseeded UC Irvine in the opening round of the Los Angeles Regional Friday at Jackie Robinson Stadium. After UC Irvine scored the go-ahead run in the top of the 11th on a suicide squeeze, the Tigers were down to their final out before Anteater reliever Eric Pettis walked Austin Nola, gave up a single to Alex Edward and walked Leon Landry to load the bases for Watkins, who pinch ran for Matt Gaudet in the 10th. With a 1-2 count, Watkins ripped a fastball over right fielder Sean Madigan’s head to score Nola and Edward for the win. LSU reliever Ben Alsup (5-0) earned the victory after pitching the final two innings and allowing one run on one hit. Leading LSU offensively was catcher Micah Gibbs, who finished 2-for-5 with a home run and five RBIs. Landry and left fielder Mason Katz also contributed with three hits apiece.

involved in that stuff. Can’t do anything about it. It is what it is. If they want to make changes to help the game then that’s fine,” he said. Deciding what to do and getting it done are different issues. Any additional replay needs approval from the unions representing players and umpires. Locking down the technical aspects could take more time. As it stands, camera angles are different at each park, limiting the looks that umpires get. Paul Hawkins, who designed the Hawk-Eye replay system that’s been well received in tennis, said baseball would need to make adjustments. “This could be done using dedicated officiating technology rather, than solely piggybacking on television replays which are sometimes slow and inconclusive,” he wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press. Then, it would come down to who makes the call. Could be the crew chief on the field, could be an NHLstyle central review room, could be a replay official at the ballpark.
Wooden Continued from Page C1. from good books — especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day.” While he lived his father’s words, many more lived his. Those lucky enough to play for him got it first hand, but there was no shortage of Wooden sayings making the rounds far away from the basketball court. “Learn as if you were to live forever; live as if you were to die tomorrow,” was one. “Don’t give up on your dreams, or your dreams will give up on you,” was another. Born Oct. 14, 1910, near Martinsville, Ind., on a farm that didn’t have electricity or indoor plumbing, Wooden’s life revolved around sports from the time his father built a baseball diamond among his wheat, corn and alfalfa. Baseball was his favorite sport, but there was also a basketball hoop nailed in a hayloft. Wooden played there countless hours with his brother, Maurice, using any kind of ball they could find.
He led Martinsville High School to the Indiana state basketball championship in 1927 before heading to Purdue, where he was AllAmerica from 1930-32. The Boilermakers were national champions his senior season, and Wooden, nicknamed “the Indiana Rubber Man” for his dives on the hardcourt, was college basketball’s player of the year. But it wasn’t until he headed west to Southern California that Wooden really made his mark on the game. Wooden guided the Bruins to seven consecutive titles from 1967 through 1973 and a record 88-game winning streak in the early 1970s. From the time of his first title following the 1963-64 season through the 10th in 1974-75, Wooden’s Bruins were 330-19, including four 30-0 seasons. The bespectacled former high school teacher ended up at UCLA almost by accident. Wooden was awaiting a call from the University of Minnesota for its head coaching job. In the meantime, UCLA called, and he accepted.

Mills’ ex-nanny loses employment claim A nanny who claimed she was mistreated by Paul McCartney’s ex-wife Heather Mills has lost her legal case. Sara Trumble told a British employment tribunal that she was hired to look after Mills and McCartney’s daughter Beatrice, but was relegated to domestic Heather Sara Mills Trumble chores after returning from maternity leave in 2008. She also claimed that Mills forced her to work long hours without extra pay. Tribunal judge Steven Vowles dismissed Trumble’s claims for sexual discrimination and unfair dismissal in a ruling Friday. Mills had denied the claims, saying she had treated 26-yearold Trumble like a daughter. She said the relationship turned sour when she refused to give the nanny money to pay for breast enlargement surgery. Mills and McCartney married in 2002 and divorced in 2008.
Man guilty of burglary in Dunst heist A mechanic accused of helping steal Kirsten Dunst’s $2,000 designer purse from a Manhattan hotel suite has been convicted of burglary in the 2007 theft. Jurors heard from the “Spider-Man” star and fellow actor Simon Pegg during the trial. James Jimenez also was convicted Friday of trespassing at the SoHo Grand Hotel during the filming of the comedy “How to Lose Friends & Alienate People.” The verdict ended a case that brought the actors to the witness stand — twice. Jimenez was retried after his initial jury deadlocked on burglary charges, while convicting him of another trespass charge. Jimenez said he just tagged along with a co-defendant he believed had permission to be in the hotel room. Actors were using it to relax between takes.
Sheryl Crow adopts second baby boy Sheryl Crow is the mother of another baby boy. The singer-songwriter announced Friday that she has adopted another son, Levi James, who was born April 30. The 47-year-old shared the news on her website, and her publicist confirmed the adoption. She wrote that “Wyatt has a new little brother!” referring to her 3-year-old son, who is also Sheryl Crow adopted. The Grammy winner has also appeared on ABC’s “Cougar Town” this year.
Dodgers: Suit against Lovitz resolved The Los Angeles Dodgers said they’ve resolved a dispute with comedian and actor Jon Lovitz over nearly $100,000 in unpaid tickets. The Dodgers sued Lovitz and others last month over nonpayment for the 2010 season seats, which are located behind home plate. In a statement released Friday, the team says it resolved the case “very quickly, very amicably, and to the satisfaction of both parties.” The Dodgers also say Lovitz is a friend and welcome back at the stadium any time.

Elvis is on the ballot in Minnesota An Elvis impersonator wearing a red jump suit has filed for office as the running mate of a gubernatorial candidate seeking Minnesota’s GOP nomination. A spokesman for Minnesota’s secretary of state said Todd “Elvis” Anderson hopes to be certified on the primary ballot, running for the position of lieutenant governor alongside Ole Savior, a perennial office seeker. Minnesota law forbids improper names and requires candidates to sign a statement vouching for their ballot name as the one by which they are “commonly and generally known in the community.” Secretary of State spokesman John Aiken said Friday that officials didn’t think the nickname would give Anderson an unfair advantage.
NEW YORK (AP) — Former Sgt. David Clemo understands the power of music. Although he wasn’t in combat, as a telecommunications specialist stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan, he had to dodge plenty of gunfire and mortars going off around him. When it was over, he would turn to music to help him relax. Now, as a member of the 4Troops, Clemo hopes to bring that same kind of ease to others with the new group’s self-titled debut album, a mix of patriotic and uplifting songs. “That’s what made music so important,” Clemo said in a recent interview. “It helps take you another place for a while.” 4Troops is comprised of Clemo, former Capt. Meredith Melcher, retired Staff Sgt. Ron Henry and former Sgt. Daniel Jens. The group is the creation of Army veteran Victor Hurtado, who serves as the production director for the Army Soldier Show, which provides entertainment for soliders and their families (Hurtado has the same job originated by Irving Berlin). “We have such a good chemistry, people can’t believe we’ve only been working together since December,” Henry said. But even before they came together for Hurtado’s group, music was a big part of their lives. Melcher and Clemo participated in the Army Soldier Show; Henry performed in “Military Idol,” the talent competition for U.S. servicemen and women; and Jens appeared on season three of “America’s Got Talent.” Melcher is the lone female member of the group, and held the highest rank. She, along with Clemo and Jens, were honorably discharged. Henry retired after a 20-year hitch. Henry recalled a lot of combat over his career, which began in the infantry. He later became a transportation manager, responsible for deploying troops to the field. As a field artilleryman, Jens, who was stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan, seemed to have the most close calls. His detail was responsible for convoy

A rocket-propelled grenade flew over the trunk of my car. Another time, I had a rocket fly over my head and it landed 30 yards away,” Jens said. Melcher was spared from direct contact with the enemy, but as a health care operations officer, she couldn’t escape the war’s residual effect. “I saw a lot of wounded Americans and Iraqis, includ-
ing some that had been deceased on each side, so that was a little bit harrowing,” she said. Some days were harder to cope with than others for Melcher and her unit. “We are all a little bit scared, so we’re going to use whatever we could to get through it, whether that’s music, whether that’s humor, whether that’s just sitting down together to talk about what you’re seeing each day,” Melcher confided. Their debut doesn’t refer-
ence those difficult times directly. Instead, there are songs like the inspirational “You’ll Never Walk Alone” to Toby Keith’s in-your-face “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue.” But the group shies away from expressing their opinions on the nation’s conflicts. “We are not concerned about the politics. We just want to focus on the service members and their families who have paid a great price,” Henry said.
Sotheby’s to auction Lehman Brothers art NEW YORK (AP) — More than 400 works from the corporate contemporary art collection once displayed at Lehman Brothers will be auctioned this fall to help pay creditors of the failed investment bank, Sotheby’s announced Friday. The selected works from the Neuberger Berman and Lehman Brothers Corporate Art Collection are scheduled to be sold on Sept. 25, pending bankruptcy court approval, the auction house said. The collection, which Sotheby’s says is valued at more than $10 million, includes works by some of the leading artists of contemporary art, including Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince and Julie Mehretu. Sale proceeds will go to creditors of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., which filed for bankruptcy in September 2008, helping spark one of the worst financial crises since the Great Depression. It was the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history. Among the highlights is Hirst’s “We’ve Got Style,” (The Vessel Collection-Blue), a wood cabinet filled with glass and ceramic objects created in 1993. Its pre-sale estimate is $800,000 to $1.2 million. Many of the works, which had lined the corridors and board rooms of Lehman and Neuberger, “were acquired from cutting edge and emergent artists who have since evolved into the vanguards of the contemporary art world,” said Kelly Wright, who is overseeing the evaluation and sale of the works for Lehman.

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Take care about recommending to a friend someone you just met without knowing about that person’s business ethics. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — It’s admirable to be open-minded and receptive to the bizarre ways of another, but don’t carry it too far. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Adopting a poor attitude about some work that is thrown at you is likely to only hurt you further. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Be extremely cautious about doing something that is highly speculative.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Take care not to say anything about a co-worker that you wouldn’t say to his/her face, because anything you tell another will be repeated verbatim to the person in question.

TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m 16 and now live with my grandparents. I got into trouble in Illinois and my parents wanted to get me away from some of my friends. My mother didn’t like them and thought they were a bad influence on me, and they probably were. I am now in school in Indiana and trying to make new friends, which isn’t easy. My problem is my grandparents. They constantly criticize everything I do. They don’t like my hairstyle, my choice of clothes, the way I keep my bedroom, the type of food I eat or the way I do my homework. Instead of saying, “Your hair might look better if you wore it in a ponytail,” my grandmother says, “Your hair looks terrible. It looks like you combed it with a meat cleaver.” When it comes to food, instead of saying, “It’s healthier to eat fruits and vegetables instead of fries and hamburgers,” she says, “It’s no wonder you’re fat and have a face full of zits with all that junk you are eating.” I think you are getting the message. In the three months I’ve been living with my grandparents, they have never said a kind word to me. Our total conversation is negative. I’m trying to straighten out my life, but my grandparents are making it very difficult for me. I’ll admit I’ve been rude and have told them to shut up when I don’t want to listen to them badmouthing me. I also admit swearing at them occasionally. Please tell me what I can do to ease the tension I feel. I’m sure they feel it, too. — Nameless, Somewhere in Indiana. Nameless: Your grandparents are generous for taking you in and helping you get a fresh start, but the two-way flow of rudeness and negativity in the household is sure to sabotage that goal. It’s time to set up a workable plan. All of you will need to put your emotions on hold and simply talk. This includes your parents, who should participate in the discussion. You must, between all of you, find a living arrangement that will allow you to do well in school, get along with your grandparents and, in general, become a happy teen. It begins with mutual respect. For your part, that means, of course, no more swearing or telling them to shut up. If you’re really overweight, counting calories and eating healthy, nourishing meals will eliminate the extra pounds. If you have a complexion problem, you should visit a dermatologist. Modern medicine can work wonders to eliminate pimples and acne. I wish you the best of luck. Starting over is never easy, and if your new living situation is negative and belittling, you may repeat the same behaviors that got you into trouble in Illinois. But from your letter, I believe you truly want to succeed. If that’s the case, you may have to be the one to initiate the changes that will make it possible. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

Would you mind if I change places with your friend, so I can participate in a conversation while you two talk?” And in the future, because this happens regularly, their preference for talking only to each other should be taken into consideration when the seating is arranged.

Louie and I are beginning to cope, and friends are really helping. My parents, however, are not. They are pushing me to marry Louie before the baby comes. I explained that I don’t want that stigma and that I would like to have a big wedding later, perhaps in 2012. My parents disagree and want nothing to do with a big wedding down the road since I won’t marry Louie now. This will be their first grandchild, and they are ruining the experience by stressing me out. By the way, because of financial hardship, I currently live at home with them. What should I do? — Mama-to-Be in New
Jersey Dear Mama-to-Be: At 27 you are an adult, and presumably able to make important decisions for yourself. Do not allow yourself to be rushed into a loveless marriage that could lead to more children and a subsequent divorce. If you and Louie are still together in 2012, you can have the wedding of
your dreams then. But please be aware that your parents are under no obligation to pay for it.

Pap tests not necessary after full hysterectomy Dear Dr. Gott: I had ovarian cancer and had a complete hysterectomy two years ago. My cancer was in the first stage, and, thankfully, I did not need chemo or radiation. My surgeon continues to schedule me for Pap smears/ internal exams yearly and says I will need to have this done for the rest of my life, but I don’t understand why. When I ask him, he gets short with me and says to “look it up on the Internet.” This does not make sense to me. Even my family doctor was surprised that I must continue to have Pap smears after having a complete hysterectomy. Can you shed some light on this? Thank you. Dear Reader: First things first. Find another surgeon/ gynecologist. A huffy attitude and saying “Look it up on the Internet” is never an appropriate response to a concerned patient’s question, especially one who has a diagnosis of cancer. All patients deserve respect and simple politeness. Physicians dealing with cancer patients should realize this above all others because of the justified high emotions often associated with the diagnosis. Now, onto your question. There are two types of hysterectomy: total and partial (also known as supracervical). A partial hysterectomy removes the uterus and leaves the cervix intact. A total hysterectomy removes both the uterus and the cervix. In each procedure, the ovaries and fallopian tubes may be removed as well, depending on the reason for the hysterectomy. I assume your “complete” hysterectomy is a total one. Also, because of your ovarian cancer, it is a given that your ovaries and fallopian tubes would have been removed as well, since they were the source of the cancer and the reason for undergoing the procedure. Treatment for ovarian cancer often begins with surgery to remove the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, nearby lymph nodes and a fold of fatty abdominal tissue. Tissue and abdominal fluid samples are also taken to determine the stage of cancer and if additional treatments may be required. Depending on the results, chemotherapy and/or radiation are typically ordered. This is especially true for more advanced cases. Unless you had a partial hysterectomy, a Pap smear, which tests for cervical cancer, doesn’t make any sense because you don’t have a cervix. However, because I am neither a gynecologist nor a surgeon, I must defer a final answer to the specialists. Find a gynecologist with whom you feel comfortable. You can even make a “get acquainted” visit to determine whether he or she is someone you truly wish to see. Once you have found the specialist of your choice, provide him or her with your medical records. Then sit down to discuss what type of hysterectomy you had, the type of testing you should undergo
ASK THE DOCTOR Dr. PETER
to monitor your ovarian cancer until you enter remission, and whether Pap smears are necessary in your case. Also, remember to eat well, exercise, get plenty of rest, and keep stress to a minimum to increase and/or maintain your quality of life. This may also help with any symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, and more, that you may be experiencing following your hysterectomy.

Dear Abby: I’m working on a school project with several other girls, but I have an issue with one of them. “Sara” wanted to write the paper for our project, which is a huge part of our grade. Once she started writing it, we all realized she wasn’t very good at it. I felt I could do a better job, and asked if I could do it instead — or help critique and edit it. Sara refuses. I don’t want to start a fight or anything, but this is a large part of my grade, and the project is being entered in a contest that I really want to win. Is there a way I can get her to let me help, or should I just let it go? — Really Wants to Win in Ohio Dear Really Wants to Win: I’m sure your desire to win the contest is no less strong than that of your teammates.

11 girls will compete tonight in biennial contest By Manivanh Chanprasith email@example.com
A scene from “Green Day Rock Band”
Green Day immortalized in ‘Rock Band’ By John Carucci The Associated Press NEW YORK — With a hit Broadway show and now their own edition of the “Rock Band” franchise, Green Day is establishing themselves as a punk rock brand. “I just like being diverse and trying new things as far as Green Day is concerned,” says front man Billie Joe Armstrong. The Grammy-winning, multiplatinum trio joins the Beatles as the only other act immortalized in “Rock Band”; the video game is being released next Tuesday. “It’s like a glorified karaoke machine,” Armstrong said. “Or ‘Mortal Kombat’ with guitars.” As players progress through the game, they gain access into the band’s media vault, where they can unlock rare collectible images, and over 40 minutes of unreleased video. These include performances, outtakes, interviews and even a tour of their transportation. “You see old footage of us from the Bookmobile, and weird old performances and stuff no one’s looked at in almost twenty years,” Armstrong said. Bits from those old performances help re-create the kinetic energy of the band playing live. Developers went through many hours of footage to get it right, and even used stand-in performers to fine-tune the computergenerated version on the punk rock trio. “As far as video games are concerned it’s pretty close,” Armstrong said. “The Beatles wrote some of the greatest songs ever, but it wasn’t challenging to get their movement down (on ‘Rock Band’) because they didn’t really move that much.” Regarding their computer-generated likeness, the consensus was positive. “Oh man, we’re hot on computers,” said drummer Tre Cool, while Dirnt joked: “I don’t know if they got enough pimples on me.” In the game, players perform in three different venues, each significant to the band. There’s a punk rock club, which is an amalgamation of various places Green Day played in the early days; the Fox Theater in their hometown in Oakland, California; and the site of their first stadium show. “The Milton Keynes (stadium) show was quite momentous for us. It actually was the concert that was filmed for ‘Bullet in a Bible,” Dirnt said, referring to the live DVD that was recorded in 2005 on the band’s “American Idiot” tour.
The Vicksburg Alumnae Chapter of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority will present a contest tonight showcasing the talent and expressions of 11 girls. The sorority’s 10th biennial Jabberwock contest, named after the “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” Jabberwocky character, will feature an entertainment program with the theme, Remembering The King of Pop, at Warren Central High School auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. “Everything is going to be from Michael Jackson,” Jabberwock chairwoman Loretta Brantley said. “The girls have been practicing, and this program will showcase teamwork and cooperation. This program will help them get in front of an audience and express themselves.” The contest, open to all girls in kindergarten through 12th grades, was a concept adopted by the Vicksburg sorority chapter 20 years ago as a means to offer scholarship to schoolage girls. The alumnae chapter offers, annually, a $500 scholarship to each of students from Warren Central High School and Vicksburg High School. Contestants raise money by selling advertisements to businesses, individuals or organizations to be plugged in a souvenir booklet, available to every participant and advertiser. The contestant from each category who raises the most money is the winner. “The girls will get a percentage of the ads they sell,” said chapter vice president

The Little Miss and Junior Miss girls will perform dance numbers to a couple of Michael Jackson’s hits, and the Miss contestants will sing. Tonight’s participants have been practicing their
routines since April. A call for contestants came out in January during the Jabberwock Tea. Each entrant was required to apply and write an essay about participating in Jabberwock. Those interested in competing in the 2012 contest may e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mary Chapin Carpenter back after health scare
Network spending shows why free TV isn’t dead yet By The Associated Press
By the Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — If you looked at the finances of the broadcast TV networks, you might not be optimistic about the future of free TV. Each year, ABC, NBC and Fox contribute a smaller share of the profits reaped by their parent companies. Meanwhile, cable channels boost viewership and get growing chunks of the advertising pie. No wonder a cable company is about to scoop up NBC — largely because it owns cable channels, which also deliver a stream of revenue from subscription fees. So why are the TV networks spending tens of millions of dollars more on prime-time dramas and comedies for next season than they did in the last season? What’s in it for the companies, when even Fox, No. 1 among viewers in the key demographic of 18- to 49-year-olds, eked out just 3 percent of the total operating profit reported by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. in the last quarter? An analysis of the broadcast business suggests a few answers: • Even though the profits might be slim on the broad-

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — It’s no small miracle that Mary Chapin Carpenter is out with a new album and hitting the road again for the first time in three years. She suffered a pulmonary embolism in the spring of 2007, a life-threatening condition that occurs when one or more arteries in the lungs become blocked, and was forced to cancel the tour promoting her Grammy-nominated album, “The Calling.” “One of the things that was so hard about getting sick was the period of time that followed when I wasn’t working — writing and performing, just doing what I’d been doing for the past almost 30 years,” she said in a recent interview. “It really threw me. I really questioned my identity and my purpose in life.” When she recovered enough, Carpenter, 52, picked up a pen and began to create what would become her latest effort, “The Age of Miracles.” The album, released in April, peaked at No. 1 on the folk albums chart and No. 6 on the top country albums chart.
Mary Chapin Carpenter “The writing of this record, certainly a large part of it was almost like a narrative of coming out of that experience,” she said. “The title song puts out the idea that we may live in an age of miracles if we’re lucky enough to believe in them,” she added. “There is so much out there in the world to be inspired by, to connect to ... and when you are in a place in your life where things are so dark and so hard to figure out, if you are some how able to reach those conclusions, then that’s a pretty amazing thing.” Two songs in particular refer directly to her health scare, including “Holding Up the Sky” with the line, “Life astounds us in an instant, changing all we know,” as well as the song “Iceland.” “It certainly wasn’t about the country of Iceland or the See Carpenter, Page C3.

cast segment alone, other areas of media companies enjoy the benefits. Spending money on new programs helps sister divisions such as TV production studios, which will own the rights to shows in perpetuity and can sell them in other countries, to other channels and on home video. That’s partly why NBC is investing 40 percent more on new shows this year than in the 2009-10 season and backtracked from its move last year to replace new shows with a daily dose
of Jay Leno at 9 p.m. Its 13 new shows are more than double what it made last year. Six will be produced by sibling Universal Media Studios, such as the Indian call center comedy “Outsourced” and the apocalyptic thriller “The Event.” The mantra of new spending at NBC has been backed by Brian Roberts, the CEO of Comcast Corp., which is set to take control of the media company from General Electric Co. in a $13.75 billion deal expected to close late this year. “If you have a few years where you don’t invest in your programming, three or four years down the line that stream of revenue is going to take a huge dip,” said Jeff Gaspin, chairman of NBC Universal Television Entertainment. “We need to start to seed those new hits.” • The most expensive shows that generate the largest audiences are usually developed on broadcast TV before migrating to cable channels. It’s partly history and partly economics, but cable networks anchor their programming with reruns of See Network, Page C3.

At MTV award shows, it’s party over prizes By Sandy Cohen AP entertainment writer
Clooney, Robert Downey Jr., Charlize Theron and Robert DeNiro are among those expected at “Guys Choice,” while Tom Cruise, Sandra Bullock, Adam Sandler and Cameron Diaz are set to join dozens more stars at the “MTV Movie Awards.” It’s a fan-centered approach, McGrath said, and the combination of top talent, quirky categories and zany antics is a winning one for all involved. “People appreciate the twist on the traditional awards show and they can have some fun. It doesn’t have that high-level-of-anxiety feel,” she says, recalling last year’s “Guys Choice” presentation of the Brass Balls award to Clint Eastwood. “Part of you can’t believe Clint is coming to get this.” They come, said MTV general manager Stephen Friedman, because they know they’re speaking directly to their fans. Celebrities also appreciate that fans call the shots, McGrath says.
LOS ANGELES — Katy Perry dripping with green slime. Jack Black, in his underpants, shooting fireworks from his crotch. Sacha Baron Cohen’s alter-ego, Bruno, landing his bare backside on Eminem’s face. These sure aren’t Oscar moments. MTV Networks — which include Nickelodeon, Spike, Comedy Central and VH1 — specialize in irreverent awards shows, and they’re serving up a double dose this weekend with Spike’s “Guys Choice” on Saturday and the “MTV Movie Awards” Sunday. At these shows, fans pick the winners, so popular fare almost always trumps critical favorites. The categories, which change year to year, honor such achievements as Top Fantasy Leaguer and Holy Grail of Hot at “Guys Choice,” and the
Guys Choice: www.spike.com/ event/guyschoice MTV Movie Awards: www.mtv. com/ontv/movieawards/2010/ best kiss, fight and “scared-as-s--t moment” of the year at the movie awards. The network’s award shows, which also include Nickelodeon’s “Kids’ Choice Awards” and Spike’s Scream awards (where Johnny Depp presented Keith Richards with the Rock Immortal award last year), are unapologetically more about the party than the prizes. “We try to keep it fresh,” said MTV Networks Chief Judy McGrath. “Let’s not get too serious about this and think about what our audience really, really loves.” The shows consistently draw big ratings and big stars — George
Fans feel an ownership because they’re picking the winners, casting unlimited votes for their favorites. And more are coming. The “Halo Awards,” where celebrities recognize young people for serving their communities, premiered on Nickelodeon last year. And VH1 will broadcast the “Do Something Awards” for the first time, hosted by Jane Lynch, on July 19. “Guys Choice,” taping today at Sony Studios and being shown on Spike June 20, is set to include a tribute to Sylvester Stallone. Sandra Bullock is being honored at the MTV Movie Awards, to be broadcast live on MTV Sunday from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif. The show, hosted by Aziz Ansari, is also set to feature performances by Perry, Snoop Dogg and Christina Aguilera, and footage from the forthcoming “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”

Carpenter’s national tour kicks off June 19 in Charlottesville, Va., and ends Aug. 19 in Vienna, Va.

Continued from Page D1. shows that were once broadcast. That helps fill their 24-hours-a-day, seven-daysa-week schedule. “If you look at USA Network, it’s driven by ‘House,’ if you look at Turner (TNT), it’s driven by ‘Law & Order,”’ said Bruce Rosenblum, president of the Warner Bros. Television Group, which makes shows for all the networks. Audiences tend to decrease for reruns, so it’s better to start big on broadcast. To be sure, some original cable shows are popular and cable channel owners continue to spend on new programs. But even the season premiere of AMC’s highly regarded “Mad Men” was watched by fewer people last fall than a recent rerun of CBS’s “NCIS” on USA. • The benefit of hitting a home run outweighs the cost of a few strikeouts. Mega-hits like “CSI” or “Lost” can be sold around the world and generate hundreds of millions of dollars in licensing fees for reruns. A failed show might have cost $1 million-plus per episode to produce, but much of that cost is covered by advertising revenue. “If a show doesn’t work after a couple of airings, you’ve limited your costs to maybe two or three or at most nine episodes and you go on to the next one,” said Fred Reynolds, former chief financial officer for CBS Corp., which still gets most of its profit from broadcast. “You’re always trying to come up with the show that’s going to beat the incumbent. That’s good.” NBC’s failed gamble of putting Leno at 10 p.m. last year shows why this kind of spending is a must for the networks. • Broadcast television is developing sources of revenue that were once exclusively the domain of cable networks. That also helps justify new spending. TV stations used to give their signals away for free to cable, satellite and telecommunications companies in exchange for their agreeing to carry new cable channels under the same corporate umbrella. For example, News Corp. let cable companies show Fox network broadcasts if the cable providers also took the FX channel. NBC Universal did the same thing to get Oxygen, MSNBC and CNBC on the tube. Now, broadcast TV stations are demanding to be paid licensing fees to “retransmit” their signals. The negotiations are getting more intense, such as when Walt Disney Co.’s ABC briefly blacked out the Academy Awards to Cablevision Systems Corp. subscribers in March. Broadcast operators are now getting an estimated 50 cents or so per month for every pay TV subscriber — money that once went
only to cable channels such as Discovery, History or Lifetime. Research firm SNL Kagan expects such fees for broadcasters will surpass $1 billion this year as more deals are cut, and will make up about 8 percent of TV station revenue in 2011. It’s expected to hit $2 billion by 2014. A lot of that money flows to the networks’ parent companies through TV stations they own and from affiliate stations that are part of their networks. The money is nowhere near the $37.3 billion in fees that basic cable channels are expected to get in 2014, but it’s a start. “In order to keep growing those fees, (networks) have to deliver some blockbuster programming,” said SNL Kagan analyst Robin Flynn. • Broadcast TV, not cable, remains the easiest way for advertisers to get their message out quickly. And now advertisers have more money to spend. Partly helped by its freeto-air accessibility and easyto-find lower numbers in channel lineups, nothing yet beats the big audiences that broadcast TV can deliver at once. The fragmentation of media provoked by the rise of cable actually makes hit broadcast shows more valuable. “Shows that have bigger audiences have more effect at the water cooler, and these days those are the things we are beginning to value more,” said Antony Young, CEO of advertising agency Optimedia US. Companies in some of the sectors hurt worst in the recession, notably the auto industry, are back in the market buying TV ad time. Automakers’ spending on national TV ads in the first quarter rose 13 percent from a year ago, while auto dealers spent 41 percent more, according to Kantar Media. While that doesn’t mark a recovery to prerecession levels, broadcasters such as CBS and ABC typically own the biggest stations in the biggest markets, and will benefit from the gains. Revenue at CBS’ local stations jumped 29 percent in the first three months of the year from the first quarter of 2009, and revenue at the national network grew 25 percent. After cutbacks at stations during the recession, even more of their revenue now turns to profit. “(In) the local television business, there was a broad, deep recession. That’s what happened. (Advertisers) cut back. They didn’t cut back 10 percent; they cut back 40 percent,” CBS Chief Financial Officer Joe Ianniello told an investor conference in May. “But guess what, they’re coming back into the marketplace and there’s still a ways to go.”

Of course, the hope is that you will never be in a building that catches on fire. But just in case, it is important to plan an escape route and practice it often.
• If you come to a closed door, feel the door to see if it is hot. If it is hot to touch, don’t open it. Turn around and look for a window to climb out of.

Take a look at the plan Mario drew for his home. Using a GREEN crayon, draw a path to escape for each member of the family.
• Whatever you do, DON’T HIDE! Get out of the building any way you can. Sometimes when things get scary, it is tempting to hide, but this is not the time to hide. • Once outside the building, call 9-1-1! Get a neighbor to call if you don’t have a phone.
If you can’t get out of your room in a fire, scream for help or use what’s hidden in the picture. Color the spaces with one dot GREEN and two dots RED to reveal it.
• Whatever you do, DON’T GO BACK INSIDE! Even if your very favorite teddy bear is still in there, don’t re-enter the building. You can get a new teddy, but not a new you!

“Grown-ups” go to work, come home and work, go to bed, then get up and do it all over again. Do you remember the last time you actually “played”? Recreation is important whether we are children or adults. The word “recreation” speaks for itself; we need to create ourselves again each day for optimum performance! Each one of us has the capacity for recuperation and repair. We need to rest the mind, body and spirit from the weight of daily responsibility. An essential element for renewal is daily trust in God’s will. In Matthew 11:28, our Lord says…“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Join in weekly worship at God’s house and let Him help you “recreate” yourself. You will be refreshed! Sunday Acts 5.1-16
