Lawsuits filed by hospital up 670% River Region says it’s cleaning up bookkeeping problems By Danny Barrett Jr. email@example.com River Region Health System increased collections lawsuits 670 percent in the first five months of this year, a surge the largest local health care network attributed to internal staff shuffling and not a change in strategy. There were 763 suits filed from Jan. 1 through June 1 compared to 114 in the same months of 2009. The total sought is more than $1 million, up more than 31 percent. Amounts per person, however, are smaller by nearly $5,000 on average, meaning more patients are being pursued in court for smaller balances, some less than $300. County courts in Mississippi have jurisdiction up to $200,000. A “significant number of uncollectible accounts” backed up in 2009 and were not processed timely by business office personnel, according to a statement composed by Diane Gawronski, River Region’s vice president for marketing and business development, and John Milazzo, chief financial officer. They said the surge should be followed by a “more normal level” of cases filed each month in court. River Region’s former business office director “fell behind” on the accounts, Milazzo said, and was replaced. No other changes were made in the department of more than 50 employees, Milazzo said. Cases where the hospital has filed to garnish wages show the process is catching people at every rung of the economic ladder — from retail store cashiers to law enforcement officers. They include some who had previously arranged payment plans, based on correspondence between some defendants and a handful of law firms hired by River Region. Such pleadings are necessary to avoid an automatic

The hospital recorded 10,782 inpatient admissions, 34,440 emergency visits, 51,448 outpatient visits and 127,828 clinic visits last year. Also, River Region said it provided more than $30 million worth of uncompensated care and unspecified charity care and financial assistance for those who qualify. When suits are filed, law enforcement officers are often called on to deliver the paperwork. “I’ve served quite a few of them,” said Randy Naylor, a Warren
Members of the Downtown Partners advisory panel on Tuesday appeared ready to abandon the idea of creating a new taxing district downtown, though a fact-finding trip the group planned to take to Jackson to learn about that city’s Business Improvement District did not happen. “I think we might be better served to assist Main Street as opposed to try to take on the duties they’ve already been handling for the past quarter century,” said Remy Massey. Vicksburg Main Street is a chartered business development and promotions organization that operates, for the most part, on revenue from a property tax assessment added to downtown properties. A committee of Downtown Partners members, who met for the fourth time Tuesday since being formed by the mayor in mid-March, was to explore the BID option before the meeting. Chairman Blake Teller said the trip to Jackson — where the state’s only BID was created in 1996 — fell through on two occasions, but added it will likely take place over the next month. Similar to the Vicksburg Main Street Program taxing district, a BID would generate funds for downtown development via an additional tax. An added dimension is that BID funds could be used to purchase derelict buildings and have them rehabbed for commercial or residential use. Jackson has both Main Street and BID programs and Vicksburg-native and Jack-

Most don’t want to talk about their cases on the record, whether resolved or not. One even cited a genuine fear of retribution from staff doctors on future visits. “I just went and paid it,” said a defendant who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “I fear a grudge... you know, I have children.” Some describe being saddled with huge hospital bills while working lowpaying jobs without health insurance. “I went to the doctor last

They told me I had a stomachache. I guess it’s an ulcer, I don’t know.” Hollis said a bill arrived six months later via forwarded mail after he switched apartments. It remained unpaid and, within six months, he received a call from the Memphis office of the Men-

Vicksburg man pleads guilty to federal child-porn charges A Vicksburg man has pleaded guilty in federal court to charges of child pornography, a spokesman with the U.S. Department of Justice said today. Bryan Blake Neihaus, 21, 452 Tilton Ranch Road, faces a maximum of 140 years in prison from his guilty pleas to four counts of production and two counts of possession of child pornography. Neihaus was arrested by FBI agents in January after images were found on his computer. He was also indicted in May by the Warren County Grand Jury on 10 counts of child sexual assault, molestation and pornography. District Attorney Ricky Smith said local charges will still be pursued in court regardless of federal sentencing. A Warren County trial date has been set for Nov. 15.

Charred Oak Street houses to be razed By Steve Sanoski email@example.com Three Oak Street rental houses the owner says date to the 1840s were left “totally beyond repair” in a March 7 fire and will be demolished. S.J. “Skippy” Tuminello received approval from the Vicksburg Board of Architectural Review Tuesday to clear the sites. “It’s quite sad to have to ask you to do this,” Tuminello said to the board. “Three of these buildings were the original Confederate barracks of the old Marine Hospital.” Tuminello requested the board’s permission to demolish four homes at 2312, 2314, 2316 and 2318 Oak St., but

members imposed a 150-day stay on the property at 2318 as required by the city’s historic preservation guidelines. That home, which Tuminello said was built around 1910 and does not have as much historical significance as the other three, was not as severely damaged in the blaze. The fire, which authorities said began at 2314 Oak in a dislodged electric heater, seriously injured a 57-year-old woman and her 8- and 4-yearold grandsons. After five months, Tuminello can reapproach the board to seek permission again to demolish the roughly 800-square-foot home at 2318 Oak St. “Maybe we can do something
with it,” said Tuminello. “The only problem is it’s totally out of character with the rest of the block now.” Also Tuesday, the board, represented by Dorwin Shields, Thurman Nelson, Betty Bullard, Tom Pharr and Sue Seratt: • OK’d board meeting minutes from May 25. • OK’d a request by David “Luke” MacFarlan to enclose an existing porch on his home at 1011 First East St. to match a “sister house” at 1013 First East St; and to repair siding, roof, fascia, soffit and remaining porch as necessary according to historic district guidelines.
A free counseling service from Warren-Yazoo Mental Health Service is under way to help the victims of a tornado on April 24.. Sponsored by a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Project Hope is available to people coping with the aftermath of the tornado that ripped through the state, killing 10 people. “We’re trying to head off any major problems,” Warren-Yazoo Mental Health Service crisis counselor Rosalyn Glascoe said. “We’ll talk with them and let them tell us what their fears or anxieties are. If they have children, we have a
booklet on how to help children cope.” Unresolved problems may become magnified, she said. Glascoe, who has counseled victims of Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast, is leading a team of three counselors who offer crisis and stress counseling by visiting tornado victims by phone or at their homes in Warren, Yazoo, Attala, Choctaw and Holmes counties. The initial contact might last as long as 15 minutes to more than an hour, depending on the client, she said. Information and referrals to other agencies are also available. She said her team has visited with more than 200 residents. The service began last month and will continue through June 28. To contact Glascoe and her team, call 662-571-7600.

Supreme Court sacks NFL on logo deal Should the National Football League be able to act as one entity and contract with only one company for all sports logo wear for all 32 NFL teams? Does acting as one entity unfairly constrain competition in the logo wear business? In May, a unanimous U.S. Supreme Court found that the league’s 32 teams are not a single business entity that is exempt from antitrust laws on franchise deals, such as those for caps, jerseys and equipment with team logos. Instead, the league is 32 separate teams. The ruling signals that the high court will continue to take antitrust cases seriously, but it also shows that it will be making important distinctions. The case, American Needle v. NFL, involved a lawsuit by a Chicago company that made caps for NFL teams. It still makes caps for other sports and sells cap designs from the past, such as those of the 1971 California Angels and the 1958 Los Angeles Dodgers, according to American Needle’s website. When in 2001 the NFL made a 10-year deal with Reebok for sales of logo-bearing clothing on behalf of all teams, American Needle and many other firms lost business. “Decisions by NFL teams to
license their separately owned trademarks collectively and to only one vendor are decisions that deprive the marketplace of ... actual or potential competition,” Justice John Paul Stevens wrote in his 9-0 opinion. The case will go back to a trial court in Chicago to determine if antitrust laws actually were violated. “It was the right decision,” Ilya Shapiro said. He’s senior fellow in constitutional studies at the libertarian Cato Institute and editor-in-chief of the Cato Supreme Court Review. He said the NFL “doesn’t get a pass on antitrust law” but still might prevail when the lower court examines the actual case. “The court wisely made a distinction between the teams getting together on something not related to football, such as if they wanted to have an NFL airline, which would violate antitrust laws,” and other things the teams justifiably can come together on, such as TV deals. “The court below will have to determine if there are economies of scale” to the franchising deals. Shapiro also said the matter also is about “how you define the market.” In other words, is the market just among NFL teams? Or is it the NFL vs. the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, Major
League Baseball, the Professional Golfers Association, college football, Disneyland, rock groups, rap groups, etc.? If you think a New Orleans Saints cap costs too much, you always can buy one for the Anaheim Ducks or the Los Angeles Lakers. Or not buy one at all. Antitrust law should be viewed cautiously. We remember the lawsuit the U.S. government brought against Microsoft in 1998, for “tying” its Internet Explorer browser into its Windows operating system. Even in those early days of the Internet, it was obvious that nobody could tame the Net, not even then-mighty Microsoft. And that was before the rise of Google, the re-emergence of Apple, Internet-capable cell phones and so much more. At a cost of tens of millions of dollars, Microsoft reached a settlement with the government in 2001. (And, the case was in no small part motivated by rivals Netscape and Sun Microsystems.) What a waste. In the NFL case, we hope that the Chicago court concludes that this is not an antitrust violation, but that plenty of competition exists from other sports and forms of entertainment.

Graduations are celebrations, not funerals I have just reread the letters concerning the high school graduations in Sunday’s edition. I don’t understand the big fuss about yelling and clapping for your loved one who has strived to complete 12 years of school. If these young people were doing something wrong, we sure would be yelling and screaming so why not when they are accomplishing a milestone in their lives. Why not take a little longer between names for a little applause? For all those wanting a “solemn” funeral-like ceremony, why not bring back the baccalaureate services we had when I was a graduate? I recall them being very solemn. When my older sons graduated in 2004 and 2006, you bet I yelled. I was proud of them. They worked hard (one even graduated with honors), so why not let them hear Mom, Dad, even grandparents, yell, Lord

Has anyone asked the graduating students what they would like? I’ll bet most would love to hear their names called from the stands and a little applause. I say this is not a funeral, this is a celebration of a new milestone. You had best be prepared when my little ones graduate, I will yell for them, too.

Speaking of disaster ... When asked about the oil spill spewing pollution into the Gulf of Mexico, President Obama said, “It’s enraging as it is heartbreaking.” Mr. President, couldn’t the same be said about the direction you and the Democrat-controlled Congress
are taking the nation? Mark Mayfield Ridgeland
Let those who care pay We have a think tank at the morning coffee shop to correct state and federal problems. After getting all the ideas and information, we have come up with answers that will be fair to Arizona and the other states that do not agree with Arizona’s immigration law. We hear President Obama and the liberal states say they want to share the wealth with everyone. We came up with a way to satisfy these liberal states and liberal media and help Arizona out also. The first thing is to get 100 buses to leave Arizona each day full of illegal immigrants. Sell tickets for $1 each with a meal included. Don’t let it be free; they might get the wrong idea. Do this for about 365
days. That would come to about 1.8 million illegal immigrants. When the people of liberal states like Massachusetts, California, Washington and others hear about this they will be tickled to death to get these illegal immigrants out of Arizona and into their states. There would be no profiling. Only illegal immigrants with tickets would be allowed on a bus. Signs on the buses would inform passengers that the good people of the liberal states will provide work, free hospital care, free schooling and, best of all, would not be put in jail for crimes they commit or returned to Mexico. I’m sure the illegal immigrants would be much happier with their liberal friends who love them enough to give them all this. The $1 tickets would be one-way, only. Johnny Griffin Redwood

Edwards man accused in MDOC extortion JACKSON, Miss. — A former Mississippi Department of Corrections officer from Edwards is facing a six-count indictment charging him with embezzlement and extortion, state Attorney General Jim Hood says. Gerald D. Jones Jr., 31, was arrested Monday. Hinds County Circuit Judge Swan Yerger released Jones on a $3,000 bond. His trial date is set for Sept. 13.
License price reversal in Gov. Jindal’s hands BATON ROUGE — The decision of whether to repeal or keep a $15 increase in the price of a Louisiana driver’s license now rests with Gov. Bobby Jindal. The Senate gave final approval to reversing the price increase by a 29-5 vote Tuesday, sending the measure to Jindal. He wants the $13.6 million to be raised by the license hike annually to help cover costs for state police in the upcoming budget year. A license now costs $36.50 for four years, up from $21.50. The charge is nearly the highest in the South, second only to Florida where it’s $48. In Mississippi, it costs $21.

Higher ed chief quits over rehiring flap
BATON ROUGE — Louisiana Commissioner of Higher Education Sally Clausen resigned Tuesday after receiving sharp criticism for quietly retiring from her job, then being rehired without telling her governing board. “Please accept this letter of resignation effective July 1. It appears that my presence is a constant distraction to the important work of higher education and to the Board of Regents,” Clausen, 64, wrote. Clausen retired in August from the $425,000-a-year job, then was rehired within a day — getting a $90,000 lumpsum payment in the process.

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, right, and running back Reggie Bush visit the
International Bird Rescue Research Center in Buras, La., Tuesday.
N.O. Saints spread some cheer to oil-weary Plaquemines parish By Mary Foster The Associated Press FORT JACKSON, La. (AP) — A Who Dat Nation weary from the worst-ever U.S. oil spill set aside its misery for a few hours Tuesday to schmooze with the Super Bowl-champion New Orleans Saints. Along the main highway to Fort Jackson in Plaquemines Parish, coach Sean Payton, team owner Tom Benson and some players passed “Who Dat?” banners that sprouted where anti-BP signs had stood. A crowd packed the fort, which has been a staging area for cleaning birds rescued from the oil flowing from BP’s well in the Gulf of Mexico. In oppressive heat, a jazz band played and Payton and star quarterback Drew Brees signed autographs. The distraction for the community since oil began washing up in April was evident and appreciated. “We haven’t had anything to smile about in a while.
NEW FATHER’S DAY!
Drew Brees also announced a chance for a lucky fan to get a Super Bowl ring like those that will soon be worn by the team. The Saints plan to raffle a ring, with all funds going to aid victims of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Tickets are $2 each, but buyers must make a minimum $10 order. Today at least people are getting the chance,” said Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser. Brees also announced a chance for a lucky fan to get a Super Bowl ring like those that will soon be worn by the team. The Saints plan to raffle a ring, with all funds going to aid victims of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Tickets are $2 each, but buyers must make a minimum $10 order. The winner will be
announced before the Sept. 9 regular-season game against Minnesota. The Saints hope to raise $1 million through the effort. Most Plaquemines coastal waters have been closed to fishing. Some fishermen have found work with BP contractors in booming marshes to protect from the oil. But the oil has encroached well into some marshes and no one knows what the longterm impact will be on the oysters, shrimp and other seafood species that are a lifeblood of the local economy. Le and Shawn Townsend said they spent Monday spotting oiled birds in the bayous around their home. She was delighted the Saints were in Plaquemines, said “the crowd would have been bigger if they told us they were bringing Tony Hayward to kick.” Hayward is CEO of BP, which operated the rig Deepwater Horizon until it exploded April 20, killing 11 people, and sank two days later about 50 miles southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The European debt crisis is likely to have only a “modest” impact on the U.S. economic recovery as long as Wall Street stabilizes, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress today. Bernanke, in prepared remarks to the House Budget Committee, struck a more confident tone that the recovery will remain intact despite problems in Europe as well stubbornly high unemployment and a fragile housing market here at home. “The economy ... appears to be on track to continue to expand through this year and next,” Bernanke said. However, the pace of the expansion — 3.5 percent this year by the Fed’s estimate — won’t be strong enough to quickly bring relief to the 15 million Americans who are unemployed. The unemployment rate now at 9.7 percent would likely see only a “slow reduction,” Bernanke warned. Fears have grown that the recovery could be derailed. One worry is if Europe’s debt crisis turns into a broader financial contagion, crimping lending in the United States and around the globe. The situation has spooked investors, sending Wall Street into periodic nosedives. Another worry is that hiring in the United States by private companies could stall. That fear was stoked by a government report last Friday, show-
ing that job creation at private companies in May slowed sharply, with businesses adding only 41,000 new Ben j obs, the Bernanke fewest since the start of the year. However, Bernanke said signals suggest that the economy will keep on plodding ahead as massive government stimulus fades. Consumers and businesses have picked up the baton from the government and are spending sufficiently to keep the recovery on track, he said. Still, spending by consumers is much more subdued than in the early stages of past economic recoveries. That’s why economic growth is expected to be only modest this year, rather than blistering. Discussing the European crisis, Bernanke also struck a confident tone that the United States would get through the fallout without much damage. “If markets continue to stabilize, then the effects of the crisis on economic growth in the United States seem likely to be modest,” Bernanke said. Stock portfolios are taking a hit from a rattled Wall Street and weaker economic prospects in Europe probably will sap demand for U.S. exports.

The custodian of the IRA accounts can and has a responsibility to calculate the amount, which must be declared on your current income tax. The best thing to do is to turn this over to your accountant with the help of the custodian. It’s not a big deal but it is an absolute requisite. Why expose yourself to penalties? •

County constable and also a police investigator. But Naylor is also a defendant. Naylor was succinct about the status of his own case. “(The hospital) is working with me,” he said. River Region opened in 2002, created out of the merger of ParkView Regional Medical Center and Vicksburg Medical Center with the idea of one larger local hospital being better able to offer specialized services than two smaller hospitals. River Region Health System also owns most local multi-specialty clinics and several addi-
tional health businesses. Its parent company is Franklin, Tenn.-based Community Health Systems, the nation’s largest publiclytraded hospital operator. Most of the firm’s 122 general acute care hospitals, like River Region, serve smaller towns. Net operating revenues for the parent company were $3.2 billion in the first quarter, up from $2.9 billion a year ago, according to a quarterly report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in April.
Oil Continued from Page A1. disposing of the oil collected from the seafloor gusher are becoming clearer. What’s not is how much oil is eluding capture. Scientists on a team analyzing the flow said Tuesday that the amount of crude still spewing into the Gulf of Mexico might be considerably greater than what the government and company have claimed. Their assertions — combined with BP’s rush to build a bigger cap and its apparent difficulty in immediately processing all the oil being collected — have only added to the impression that BP is still floundering in dealing with the catastrophe. Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen has written to BP CEO Tony Hayward demanding “more detail and open-
ness” about how the company is handling mounting damage claims in the wake of the Gulf Coast oil spill. Allen reminded Hayward in the letter dated Tuesday that the company “is accountable to the American public for the economic loss caused by the oil spill” and said he recognized Hayward has “accepted responsibility” for it. A cap placed on the ruptured well last week to channel much of the billowing oil to a surface ship collected about 620,000 gallons Monday and an additional 330,000 from midnight to noon Tuesday, BP said. That would mean the cap is collecting more than half the escaping oil, based on the government’s estimate that around 600,000 to 1.2 million gallons a day are leaking.
Barbour Continued from Page A1. or fast enough,” Barbour said — one of the few times Barbour has publicly criticized the oil company or federal response. “I have pushed for this ... we need a sentinel line. Find it as far off the islands as we can, to give us more time to deal with it, skim it up, scoop it up, burn it, before it gets here.” Barbour said 1,173 local vessels had already been signed up and their crews trained, “and BP is going to be paying them anyway,” so he pushed to have them out searching south of the islands. “I can live with 442, if they’re
deployed right,” Barbour said, during a meeting Tuesday with the editorial board at The Sun Herald. Barbour again outlined Mississippi’s overall oil-fighting plan. It includes spotting the oil as far out as possible and trying to corral it, skim it and burn it. The state has deployed 64 miles of booms on the islands and near the mainland around bays, marshes and estuaries. If oil makes it in this far, he said, the hope is to “steer” it away from these sensitive areas and onto sandy beaches where it can be more easily removed.
son Downtown Partners President Ben Allen introduced the Downtown Partners to the BID concept. He said the BID in Jackson took three years to create. Jackson’s downtown partners group operates on about a $1 million budget to provide security in its district, as well as promote downtown residency and economic development. “I just don’t think there’s room for any more taxes on the business owners who are already struggling downtown,” said Darryl Hollingsworth, who sat in on the meeting as an alternate for Chris Porter. “If the property owners want to do a BID, I suggest they up what they’re already paying to Main Street.” Creating a BID in Vicksburg would require ballot approval by property owners in the proposed taxing district, approval by local municipal boards and bill passage at the state level by a local legislator. The Vicksburg Main Street Program has been for years working toward expanding its taxing district — which currently encompasses a 20-block radius between Mulberry, Jackson, Veto and Cherry streets — along Washington and Clay streets to Interstate 20. After Downtown Partners members agreed the panel may be most efficient by acting as an advisory panel to the Main Street program, the conversation turned to safety downtown — in light of a May 22 mugging on Washington Street in which a 70-year-old tourist from Texas had her arm broken by two attackers. No arrests were made and police have identified no suspects. “I’d like to see Main Street expand into security,” said David Day. “The perception has to be that it’s safe to go downtown, and right now that’s not the perception.” Kim Hopkins, executive director of the Main Street program, said she’s discussed with Mayor Paul Winfield the possibility of hiring two security guards to work the downtown shopping, dining and residential areas. “We’re trying to decide the hours we’d need them... and the best way we can do it,” she said. Mark Doyle said it should be up
PRECISION FORECAST to the Vicksburg Police Department to provide additional patrols downtown. The department has added nearly 20 officers to its ranks since Chief Walter Armstrong took over 11 months ago. Doyle said the department may be persuaded to create a new beat specifically for downtown. “I think that’s a waste of money,” he said after hearing about Main Street’s plans to hire security guards. “The police department ought to have a few cops who can patrol up and down the street on foot.” Officers provide foot patrols through downtown during the holidays, but not during the rest of the year. The department last fall looked into the option of opening a downtown precinct, but the idea was dropped because the headquarters on Veto Street is only a few blocks from the heart of Washington Street. Two community resource officers who were hired last year to patrol downtown in mini-trucks do not work evenings, and many of the Downtown Partners who live and work downtown said they’re seldom seen during the day, either. Winfield and several members of his staff dubbed “observers” of the Downtown Partners were all absent from the group’s meeting Tuesday. Some Downtown Partners members last month questioned why city officials were driving the panel’s conversation, but it is not clear if the “observers” made a consorted effort to give them more independence on Tuesday. Winfield said beforehand that he would not be able to attend Tuesday’s meeting due to a prior commitment. Winfield announced his idea for the advisory panel on downtown development last fall after a series of public hearings concerning a downtown restaurant that wanted to expand to include a bar. He has charged the panel with finding ways to balance residential, commercial and entertainment interests along Washington Street. The group’s 15 members represent downtown eateries, bars, merchants and residents. They are scheduled to meet next on July 13.

Arkansas decision among election-day surprises elections
By The Associated Press Voters in 12 states cast ballots Tuesday in contests that preserved, for now, the career of a Senate incumbent in Arkansas, pushed a nasty gubernatorial primary in South Carolina into a runoff, and decided the matchups for high-stakes races in Nevada and California. A look at the contests:
Arkansas In one of the night’s big surprises, two-term Sen. Blanche Lincoln bucked an anti-incumbent trend and narrowly fended off a challenge by liberal Lt. Gov. Bill Halter for the Democratic Senate nomination. Lincoln, a centrist, was forced into a runoff by Halter after neither captured a majority in last month’s primary. Labor spent heavily against Lincoln, furious at her opposition to government-run health care and to a measure making it easier for unions to enlist members. Lincoln was buttressed by support from former President Bill Clinton, a former Arkansas governor.
California An investment exceeding $70 million of her own money paid off as Republican billionaire Meg Whitman won the Republican nomination for governor. The most expensive primary in California history saw Whitman, former chief executive of eBay, spend more than $81 million total, overwhelming the $25 million spent by her defeated opponent, state Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner. Attorney General Jerry Brown, who was governor in the 1970s and 1980s, easily won the Democratic nomination for his old post. Carly Fiorina, a former Hewlett Packard Co. chief executive, used a late splurge of her own money to win the Republican nomination for senator. She defeated former U.S. Rep. Tom Campbell and state Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, a tea party favorite, after taking conservative stances against abortion and gay marriage. Fiorina will face Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer. In Southern California’s 36th District, Democratic Rep. Jane Harman, who belongs to the Blue Dog group of conservative Democrats, fended off a challenge from Marcy Winograd, cofounder of the Los Angeles chapter of Progressive Democrats of America.
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, denied charges of infidelity and finished just shy of the majority needed to win the nomination outright. Barrett, a third-term House member, finished well behind Haley and was backed by former Vice President Dick Cheney. State Sen. Vincent Sheheen won the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. In a surprise, Alvin Greene, 32, an unemployed veteran who raised no money, won the Democratic nomination to oppose GOP Sen. Jim DeMint this fall. Republican Rep. Bob Inglis, a six-term veteran, was forced into a June 22 runoff against conservative Trey Gowdy, a local prosecutor. And state Rep. Tim Scott, South Carolina’s only black state representative, also faces a runoff against Paul Thurmond, a Charleston County councilman and son of late Sen. Strom Thurmond, for an open seat.

Paul LePage, a career businessman who won tea party support, bested six rivals and captured the Republican nod for governor. The Waterville mayor said his victory shows folks want less government. On the Democratic side, Senate President Libby Mitchell won her party’s gubernatorial nomination to succeed term-limited Democratic Gov. John Baldacci. She defeated businesswoman Rosa Scarcelli, former Attorney General Steve Rowe and Pat McGowan, a former legislator who served in Baldacci’s Cabinet.
North Dakota Republican Gov. John Hoeven was unopposed in his party’s primary and will be the GOP candidate and heavy favorite for the Senate seat being vacated by retiring Democratic Sen. Byron Dorgan. Republicans nominated Rick Berg to oppose veteran Democratic Rep. Earl Pomeroy for his post.
South Dakota Lt. Gov. Dennis Daugaard,
Former NFL player Jon Runyan, endorsed by tea party supporters, won the Republican nomination for New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District. All seven incumbent House members who faced challenges won their party’s renomination.
Republican Rep. Denny Rehberg won his party’s nomination for a sixth term, overcoming one rival who was more conservative and another who challenged him from the left.
Virginia Republicans picked State Sen. Robert Hurt to challenge Democratic Rep. Tom Perriello for Virginia’s 5th Congressional District out of a field of seven GOP hopefuls. Conservative independent Jeff Clark will also be on the November ballot, complicating Republican chances of reclaiming the seat the freshman Democrat won narrowly two years ago. Republican Rep. Rob Wittman of Virginia’s 1st Congressional District easily survived a challenge from Catherine Crabill, who had tea party backing.
Georgia In north Georgia, Tom Graves’ support from the Atlanta Tea Party Patriots helped power him to a victory over Lee Hawkins, another conservative, in a runoff to fill a vacant House seat in a heavily Republican district. Rep. Nathan Deal resigned to run for governor.

Gov. Jim Gibbons became the latest incumbent to be turned out of office when Brian Sandoval won the Republican gubernatorial nomination. Gibbons became the state’s first sitting governor in a century to fail to win renomination by their party after a four-year term that featured a nasty public divorce and allegations of infidelity. Gibbons also led a state with a badly battered economy. Republicans chose Sharron Angle, a tea party favorite, to try ousting Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, this fall. The former legislator and teacher won the nomination over former Nevada GOP Chairwoman Sue Lowden and Las Vegas businessman Danny Tarkanian, who said Angle’s views would be too extreme to attract votes from pivotal independents in November. Reid’s son, Rory, won the Democratic nomination for governor.
Republican state Rep. Nikki Haley will face Rep. Gresham Barrett in a runoff election in two weeks for the GOP nomination to succeed term-limited Gov. Mark Sanford after a nasty race among four contenders. Haley, who won the endorsement of former

Glaus delivers Braves a win
JACKSON, Tenn. — The summer just keeps getting longer and longer for the Mississippi Braves. The M-Braves dropped their seventh in a row as the West Tenn Diamond Jaxx won 9-6. Mississippi has been outscored 44-14 in that span. The longest losing streak in M-Braves’ history was nine in a row in 2008. The D-Jaxx scored four runs in the seventh inning against M-Braves’ starter Mike Minor to overcome a one-run deficit and win their tenth straight. The victory for West Tenn ties a franchise record for consecutive wins. In a game with six lead changes, the Braves jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning. It was the first time the M-Braves scored a first-inning run in 17 games. Antoan Richardson scored off a wild pitch by West Tenn starter Steven Hensley. That lead disappeared in the bottom of the inning when Mike Minor gave up a two-out RBI double to Alex Liddi and then a solo home run to Johan Limonta. It was Limonta’s sixth home run of the season and gave the DJaxx a 2-1 lead. In the top of the fourth, the M-Braves sent seven batters to the plate and scored twice. Concepcion Rodriguez and Michael Daniel ripped two-out RBI singles in the frame. Conception Rodriguez attempted to score from second base, but Kuo Hui Lo’s throw from left field was right on the money and Rodriguez was tagged out to end the inning as the M-Braves held on to a 3-2 advantage. In the bottom of the fourth, Scott Savastano hit a double and Ralph Henriquez blasted a two-run homer over the left field wall to put the DJaxx up 4-3.
round (634th pick overall) while senior infielder Jet Butler was a 26th round pick of the New York Mets (782nd overall pick). Powers hit a career-best .379 this season, leading the Bulldogs with 81 hits, 18 doubles, 16 home runs and 68 RBI. He concluded his four-year MSU career with a .333 batting average and 251 hits in 202 games. Butler ranked third on the club with a .329 batting average. Other players drafted with state ties include McKenzie Dickerson of Meridian

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg throws against the Pittsburgh Pirates, his debut in the majors, in Washington Tuesday.
A stunning opening act By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Poor Stephen Strasburg. Too much pressure to put on a 21-year-old kid. No way he could live up to the hype, right? Ha! Strasburg didn’t fall short of the hype. If anything, the hype fell short of him. Fourteen strikeouts. Not a single walk. An electrifying performance, including an unfor-

PHOENIX — Any team with 21 baserunners is tough to beat. The Atlanta Braves stranded 14 of them yet still came away with a 7-5 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. Troy Glaus doubled in the goahead run, his 45th RBI, in the eighth inning off Troy Esmerling Glaus Vasquez (0-2), then Melky Cabrera raced home from third on Juan Gutierrez’s wild pitch in the ninth. Cabrera was 3-for-5 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored. Kelly Johnson had three hits, including a home run, and three RBIs for Arizona. Justin Upton and Mark Reynolds also homered for the Diamondbacks. “That was kind of two offenses doing it two different ways,” said Atlanta’s Chipper Jones, back after missing five games with an inflamed right ring finger. “They scored whenever they got hits See Glaus, Page B4.
Kobe, Lakers break down Celtics By The Associated Press

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant shoots against Boston Celtics’ Tony Allen, left, and Ray Allen, left rear, during in Game 3 of the NBA finals Tuesday.
BOSTON — Derek Fisher broke down the court after yet another miss by Ray Allen, with nothing between him and the basket. And nothing — not even three hard-charging Celtics — was going to keep the Los Angeles Lakers guard from finishing off a Game 3 victory. A hard foul from all three pursuing Celtics sent Fisher sprawling to the floor, but not before he laid in his fifth basket of the fourth quarter and converted the threepoint play to help the Lakers beat Boston 91-84 and take a 2-1 lead in the NBA finals. “Truthfully, he’s done it over and over and over again,” said Kobe Bryant, who scored 29 points. “So it’s almost his responsibility to our team to do these things.”
nba finals Bryant had 25 points after three quarters, but he did not score for the first 10 minutes of the fourth. That’s when Fisher took over, hitting four of five Lakers baskets after Boston cut a 17-point firsthalf lead down to one point to reclaim the home-court advantage they lost when the Celtics won Game 2 in L.A. Game 4 is Thursday night in Boston, and a Lakers victory would put them within one win of avenging the loss to their longtime rivals in the 2008 finals — not to mention the eight other times the Celtics have won an NBA title at the Lakers’ expense. “Our thoughts are really just still on how disappointed we are, or were, losing that second game on our home court. I think that had more
of our attention and focus than what happened in ’08,” Fisher said. “We didn’t doubt our ability to win here. ... We understand when you want to be the best, you have to win wherever, whenever.” Fisher finished with 16 points, and Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum had 10 rebounds apiece for Los Angeles. Kevin Garnett, who had just six points in Boston’s victory Sunday, had 25 in Game 3. But Allen, who had 32 points in Game 2, missed all 13 field goal attempts — one shy of the NBA finals futility record — many of them while Fisher was guarding him. “It’s a hell of a swing, I’ll tell you that,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “It’s basketball. That’s why you can’t worry See Lakers, Page B4.

BASEBALL Infant girl hurt by line drive has surgery LOS ANGELES — A 3-year-old girl whose skull was fractured by a line drive during batting practice at Dodger Stadium was scheduled for surgery Tuesday. The girl’s injury Monday is not believed to be life-threatening but it was not clear if she would have any long-term disabilities, said Dodgers spokesman Joe Jareck. The accident occurred when Dodgers catcher Russell Martin hit a line drive in the stands near third base, hitting the girl and knocking her unconscious, Jareck said. The girl was sitting with her father, who rushed her to the first-aid station. The fire department transported her to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
FOOTBALL Tate embarrassed by late night donut run RENTON, Wash. — Seahawks rookie wide receiver Golden Tate apologized Tuesday and said he was “very embarrassed” after police in suburban Seattle gave him a warning for trespassing into a gourmet doughnut shop at 3 a.m. last weekend. The former Notre Dame star says it was a foolish mistake but that he is glad to have learned a valuable lesson without getting arrested. Tate says a friend took a couple of maple bars from the shop, which is at the bottom of the building in which Tate lives. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says he has talked to Tate, and agrees that maple bars can be irresistible.

Joey Logano, left, and Kevin Harvick head out of Turn 2 during the Sprint Cup Series race, Sunday. A few laps later, near the end of the race, Harvick nudged Logano into the wall.
Joey Logano stands up for himself finally CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Joey Logano made it clear on pit road at Pocono that he’s sick and tired of being pushed around. It’s about time. Logano, the scrawny new kid on the playground, finally stood up to one of the neighborhood bullies by essentially telling Kevin Harvick he was done playing nice. If the confrontation following Sunday’s race wasn’t enough to make his point, Logano followed up with three pointed shots at the veteran driver in a live television interview. One of them was about Harvick’s wife! Who knew the kid had it in him? After all, it was long overdue display of backbone for Logano, who likely earned a fair share of respect for finally standing up for himself after a season-and-a-half of being polite. Problem is, his newfound moxie has been somewhat overshadowed by the presence of Daddy. Ah, yes, Tom Logano. Back in the center of the storm. The elder Logano learned a hard lesson last year, when NASCAR pulled his credential for entering pit road to confront Greg Biffle following
Gator buddies battle Wedding Invitations for starting position SPEEDIPRINT & METAIRIE, La. — Competition between old college friends will help decide who replaces Charles Grant as the starting left defensive end for the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. Bobby McCray and Alex Brown were teammates for three years at Florida. They spend a lot of time together now, going out for steak dinners downtown or relaxing at one of their homes in the New Orleans area and reminiscing about their days as Gators. “He’s my dude,” Brown said of McCray. “He knows my family. I know his family. So he’s a good friend of mine, but we understand that it’s competition. You’ve got to compete and we believe that we’ll bring the best out of each other and it will make us better.” During minicamp this past weekend and at an additional offseason practice on Monday, the pair appeared to be the top two candidates to complete a starting defensive end tandem that already includes Will Smith. For now, McCray is getting the most work with the first team, just as he did throughout the playoffs following Grant’s torn triceps injury. Grant was released in March, before Brown signed a twoyear, free-agent contract with New Orleans. Brown started all 16 games for Chicago last season and was a key member of the Bears defense that shut down the Saints’ league-leading

offense and quarterback Drew Brees back in the 2006-07 NFC championship game. McCray would rather not lose the job he held in the playoffs to Brown, but figures both of them will have a role regardless, perhaps with the 6-foot-3, 260-pound Brown playing more against the run. McCray, who is 6-foot-6 and one of the quickest defensive linemen on the team, often played in passing situations during his first two seasons with the Saints. “We’re not fighting over it. This is an opportunity for both of us to make plays on a great defense,” McCray said. “I’m pretty confident about it, but at the same time, I’m not worried about it. Alex is a great player and he’s a great addition to the team. At the end it will be (the coaches’) ultimate decision to figure out what they want to do, but me and him will be playing.” After signing Brown, the Saints also brought in sevenyear veteran defensive end Jimmy Wilkerson, who played the past two seasons with Tampa Bay and can also play tackle.

the Nationwide Series race at California. He was angry at how Biffle had raced his son, who only two weeks earlier had rolled his car seven times in a spectacular accident at Dover. Young Joey was clearly s h a ke n fo l l ow i n g t h at wreck, and his post-accident demeanor raised questions about his mettle. It didn’t help that TV cameras caught Tom Logano making a panicked sprint to the care center, painting a picture of a scared little boy in need of his father.
It was probably an unfair characterization, but big-time pro sports can be cutthroat and Joey Logano endured a decent dose of whispering about the back-to-back incidents and the role of his father, the overzealous protector. Yet there he was again on Sunday at Pocono, where he was the second to reach Joey’s car after he was spun by Harvick in the closing laps. The first was a Joe Gibbs Racing crewman, who made an honest effort to keep the driver from wading into the sea of yellowclad team members who had formed a barrier around Harvick. The guy might have succeeded, too, if Tom Logano had not pried him away from his son. What happened next is up for interpretation, but multiple replays seemed to show the father encouraging his son to confront Harvick with both a gesture and what appeared to be a shout of “Go Ahead!”

Atlanta starter Kris Medlen singled, walked twice and scored two runs. He left after five innings with a strained left shoulder, the result of a headfirst slide just ahead of Uptonâ€™s throw from right field for a run that tied it at 4. X-rays were negative and Medlen said he would be fine. â€œIt hurt way worse when it first happened,â€? he said. â€œIt feels way better now, just a little tight in the back. I was just trying to make things happen.â€? Medlen was grateful it was his non-pitching shoulder. â€œIt kind of felt weird coming out, because it was my left arm,â€? he said, â€œbut it hurt at the time.â€? Braves hitters drew seven
walks to go with their 14 hits. â€œI donâ€™t know where we stand in getting walks,â€? manager Bobby Cox said. â€œWeâ€™re up there pretty good.â€? In fact, Atlanta leads the majors with 274. One walk came when Arizona reliever Blaine Boyer, just back from Triple-A Reno, was called for ball four for licking his fingers and not wiping them off. â€œHe did it three or four times,â€? Cox said. â€œHe wiped every once in a while.â€? Jonathan Venters (1-0) pitched 11â „3 innings to get the victory. Billy Wagner threw a scoreless ninth for his 10th save in 12 tries. â€œEvery inning they scored there was a walk involved,â€? Arizona manager A.J. Hinch said. â€œExtra base runners, extra opportunities in a close game, is not good and they capitalized on it with some
key hits.â€? The game was tied at 3 after two innings, 4-all after six and 5-5 after seven. â€œThat was a hard-earned game,â€? Cox said. â€œWe left a ton of guys on but yet some of those we hit the ball pretty good, too.â€? Consecutive singles by Jason Heyward, Jones and Brian McCann put Atlanta up 1-0 in the first. But solo homers by Johnson and Upton, both just inside the left-field foul pole, made it 2-1 after one. Johnson hit his 13th of the season, third to lead off a game. Upton hit his 10th. Atlanta answered with two in the second to go up 3-2. Cabrera tripled and Medlen drove him in with a single. The pitcher took second on a wild pitch, then scored on the first of Omar Infanteâ€™s three
singles. Reynolds needed one pitch to tie it at 3 with an oppositefield shot to right-center, his 14th homer and second in two nights.

And it couldnâ€™t stop Fisher. â€œDerek Fisher was the difference in the game,â€? Rivers said. â€œHeâ€™s just a gutty, gritty player and he gutted the game out for them. I thought Kobe was struggling a little bit, and Fisher â€” he basically took the game over. ... I donâ€™t know what he had in the fourth quarter ... but most of them were down the stretch.â€? Fisher, 34, came into the league with Bryant in 1996 and has a history of clutch shots, from the heave with 0.4 seconds left to beat San Antonio in the 2004 playoffs to the late jumpers in a series-swinging victory over Orlando in Game 4 of last yearâ€™s finals. The Lakers went on to beat the Magic in five games, earning their 15th NBA title â€” second only to Bostonâ€™s 17. â€œI think as you grow in this game and you put in the work thatâ€™s required to still be around 14 years later, you start to recognize that being in this moment, on this stage,

itâ€™s not a given. Itâ€™s not something that happens every season,â€? Fisher said. â€œFive or 10 years from now, when Iâ€™m long gone, I would have hated to feel like I didnâ€™t just do everything I could have to help my team. Things have worked out well, and we have two more wins to get to really put a nice cap on it.â€? The Lakers opened a 37-20 first-half lead, but Boston cut the deficit to four late in the third quarter and then made it 68-67 early in the fourth on consecutive drives by Glen â€œBig Babyâ€? Davis and Rajon Rondo. With a chance to take the lead, Allen was called for an offensive foul away from the ball. Fisher then scored four of the Lakersâ€™ next five baskets to give them a five-point lead with about 41â „2 minutes left. He scored another with 49 seconds left before being flattened by Davis, among others, and adding the free throw to make it a three-possession game. â€œHe saw the opening and went and made a very bold play. ... It was imperative that it goes in for us to win,â€? Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. â€œWhen heâ€™s got an opportunity to hit a key shot, it seems like heâ€™s always there and ready.â€? Allen and Paul Pierce combined to go 1-for-13 from the field.

Strasburg Continued from Page B1. the Washington Nationalsâ€™ 5-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. â€œHe pitched,â€? Nationals slugger Adam Dunn said, â€œprobably the best game Iâ€™ve ever seen pitched.â€? Certainly it gets strong consideration as the best debut outing of all time. Only J.R. Richard and Karl Spooner struck out more in records dating to 1920 â€” 15 for Richard with Houston in 1971, 15 for Spooner with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1954 â€” but both had three walks and pitched complete games. If Strasburg hadnâ€™t been pulled after seven innings because of a tightly regulated pitch count, he surely would have passed them both. â€œIâ€™ve been catching a lot of guys,â€? said catcher Ivan Rodriguez, patting Strasburg on the shoulder, â€œbut this kid is unbelievable.â€? The right-hander allowed

four hits and two earned runs, both scoring on Delwyn Youngâ€™s homer to the first row of seats in right field in the fourth inning. Rodriguez took the blame for calling that pitch, a 90 mph changeup. Strasburg was pulled for a pinch hitter after seven innings â€” 65 of his 94 pitches were strikes â€” and took a quick curtain call. After the game, his teammates pelted him with three shaving cream pies and made him wear the goofy silver â€œElvis wig,â€? a clubhouse ritual for the player of the game. â€œI thought I was going to be a lot more nervous than I was,â€? Strasburg said. Maybe thatâ€™s because he didnâ€™t leave much time for contemplation. Strasburg always pitches in a hurry â€” the game took only 2 hours, 19 minutes â€” and plate umpire Tom Hallion
even suggested to him that he slow down his warmups because the breaks between innings are longer in the majors. â€œThe only thing I really remember is the first pitch â€” ball inside â€” everything else is just such a blur,â€? Strasburg said. â€œAt one point I lost track of how many innings I threw. I was like, â€˜You know what? Iâ€™m just going to go out there and have fun.â€™ Itâ€™s amazing. â€œItâ€™s kind of like when you get married and everything. You kind of go into it wanting to remember everything â€” and once itâ€™s done, you canâ€™t remember a single thing.â€? Strasburg should know. He was married in January. His family, gathered in the corner of the news conference room, joined in the laughter. When he left the podium, he gave hugs to all of them.

Trustmark Bank employee Rose Hodges, above, places a tile on a mural at Beechwood Elementary. At left, fellow employees Amy Haygood, foreground, and Audrey Sylvester clean up the garden at the school. The effort Tuesday is part of “A Gift of Time,” an annual Trustmark volunteer effort.

Fox, actor, 49; Johnny Depp, actor, 47; Gloria Reuben, actress, 46; Michaela Conlin, actress, 32; Natalie Portman, actress, 29; Mae Whitman, actress, 22. n DEATHS Jacob Milgrom — The rabbi considered the world’s foremost authority on the biblical book of Leviticus, has died. He was 87. Milgrom wrote a three-volume series on Leviticus, interpreting Jewish dietary and purification rituals as well as the Bible’s position on homosexuality. He concluded the ban on homosexuality applies only to Jewish men. Relatives say he died on Sunday at Hadassah University Hospital in Jerusalem of a brain hemorrhage after a fall. He is survived by his wife, Jo, four children and 14 grandchildren. His funeral was Monday in Jerusalem. Jack Harrison — A survivor of the Great Escape plot by Allied prisoners in a German prison in World War II has died. He was 97. Harrison’s family said he died Friday at Erskine veterans’ home in Bishopton, Scotland. Harrison was a Royal Air Force pilot who was shot down and captured on his first mission in 1942. He was part of the plot to escape from Stalag Luft III in 1944, retold in the film “The Great Escape.”
Kiss and tell: Guitarist’s memoir in works A kiss-and-tell memoir is coming from Ace Frehley, former lead guitarist of the heavy metal band Kiss. Gallery Books announced Tuesday that the 59-year-old Frehley is working on “No Regrets,” a look back at a “life of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll.” Gallery, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, plans to release in the summer of 2011. Kiss, known for its face paint and wild costumes, had such hits in the 1970s as “Beth” and “Rock and Roll All Nite.”
Car believed owned by Kanye stolen
Police were trying to determine who stole a pricey sports car that reportedly belonged to rapper Kanye West, and crashed it into a Honolulu house. Police said Tuesday a black Porsche Panamera rammed into the unoccupied house near Waikiki early Saturday, creating a large hole in the side of the garage and crumpling the sedan. Witnesses reported seeing two men walk away from the car after the crash, and police are still trying to identify the suspects. No arrests have
been made. Two news outlets reported the car is registered to West, who had been in Hawaii while recording a new album. Police spokeswoman Michelle Yu wouldn’t confirm who owns the car, and West’s agent didn’t return a phone message.
Arlington Cemetery boss retiring The superintendent of Arlington National Cemetery for the past 19 years is retiring. John C. Metzler Jr. has worked for the government for 42 years and says his last day will be July 2. The 62-year-old’s father was also superintendent at the cemetery outside the nation’s capital. The high point of his career, he said, was expanding the cemetery for veterans and their families so it could continue to take new burials until 2060.
L.A. judge doubles Lindsay Lohan’s bail Lindsay Lohan’s alcohol-monitoring bracelet got her in trouble Tuesday with a judge who doubled the actress’ s bail to $200,000. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel determined Lohan violated the terms of her release after a closed-door meeting with the actress’s attorney and a prosecutor. Revel did not detail the violation, but said her decision was made after receiving “results” issued by a court-ordered alcohol monitor. District Attorney’s spokeswoman Shiara Davila-Morales said it was an “alcohol-related violation.” Lohan’s $200,000 bail was posted less than two hours after the hearing.

Mr. Potato Head adding Elvis likeness The Elvis Presley estate has signed a deal for Hasbro Inc. and PPW Toys to release an Elvis version of Mr. Potato Head. Kevin Kern, a spokesman for Presley’s Graceland estate, said the new toy is one of 15,000 Elvis-licensed products and is one the company is excited about. The first of the Elvis potato heads will be released for Elvis Tribute Week in August. The toy will be in a jumpsuit. A second version — with the likeness dressed in black leather — will be on the market for Christmas.
he’s here for the party
Host Kid Rock ready to roll with CMT awards NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Kid Rock won’t be too far out of his comfort zone as host of the Country Music Television Awards. It will be kind of like throwing a party. “They’re just kind of loose and fun, and they’re geared that way — to have fun,” he said of today’s event, to be aired live on the network from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. “You go to the Grammys, and it’s very serious. You’re just like, ‘Man, everyone lighten up a little bit. It’s fun. It’s music. Let’s celebrate,”’ he said. “And that’s just kind of the atmosphere at the CMT Awards, just really laid back, really fun, got some over-thetop performances, a little riff raff here and there. It just creates for a good atmosphere, good time.” Kid Rock wouldn’t reveal too much of what’s going to happen during the show, but he did offer up a possible scenario. “There will probably be (a moment) where I propose to Kellie Pickler,” he said. “She’ll immediately dump me as I’m flirting with Carrie Underwood. I’ll probably be smacked by Miranda Lambert for the whole fiasco. Then me and Jamey Johnson will go get drunk.” When informed that Lambert is now engaged to fellow country artist Blake Shelton, Kid replied: “I’m not messing with Blake or Miranda. I’m actually more scared of Miranda.” Back in April, he announced on his website that he would be hosting the CMT Awards by writing, “All I can promise is I will be awesome.” Asked how he would live up to that promise, he smirked and said: “This is where the cocky me comes out ... How could I not be awesome?” Even though he is known to

many for his rock music, over the years he has made Nashville a second home through collaborations with artists including the Zac Brown Band, Willie Nelson and Gretchen
Wilson. Unlike many artists from other genres who occasionally try to crossover into country music, fans and artists seem to have embraced Kid Rock. His 2008 song “All Summer Long” was a top 5 hit on the country singles chart, and the video won a CMT Award last year. He also taped an episode of “CMT Crossroads” with Hank Williams Jr. in 2001 and had a country hit in 2002 with the song “Picture,” sung with Sheryl Crow. “I’d like to say it’s because I’m skinny. I’m cute. I’m fun at parties, but I don’t think that’s the real reason,” he said of his appeal to country listeners.
“I think it boils down to the music, maybe the honesty if I had to take a guess.” In addition to his hosting duties, Kid Rock also will be performing on the show. Others in the lineup include Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, the Zac Brown Band, Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Jamey Johnson, LeAnn Rimes, Keith Urban and John Mayer. Being pals with some of the top names in country, including some of today’s performers, is why Kid Rock won’t consider his hosting duties as a work night. “The country community is kind of small, and I’ve been fortunate to make a lot of great friends in it,” he said. “I’m just looking forward to seeing everybody and definitely looking forward to some sort of after-party. I guess hosting the show is a good excuse to throw a good after-party, right?”
Trip a dream for ‘The Daily Show’ soccer fan NEW YORK (AP) — John Oliver’s job on “The Daily Show” is giving him an English soccer fan’s dream: the chance to attend the World Cup — and perhaps more important — taunt the Americans before they take on his national team. Oliver and producer Tim Greenberg left for South Africa earlier this week to file reports for Jon Stewart’s Comedy Central show. Oliver,

will air Thursday. “It was a free exchange of opinions as to how the England game would go,” Oliver said. “You can probably imagine how that degenerated.” The South African visit is the show’s fourth international trip in four summers. This year’s trip was encouraged by Stewart, a former college soccer player. Oliver, 32, has been part of “The Daily Show” for four years.

sor talk to her or you might get in trouble for harassment. Or better yet — change the time of your workout. Dear Abby: My father died six months ago after many years of declining health. He was 87 and had lived a long and rich life. My oldest brother insists we have an annual celebration on my father’s birthday at Dad’s favorite Chinese restaurant. This isn’t how I want to honor my father. He was a simple man who liked working “behind the scenes.” Everyone in our large family showed up at the restaurant, and my mother and brother loved all the attention. I do not want to memorialize my father this way, but not partici-
BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: The main reason you’re likely to achieve whatever it is you go after in the year ahead is because you won’t be looking for easy outs. Expecting to work for what you get keeps you going in a positive direction, regardless of what occurs. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — If there is something you strongly desire, keep telling yourself over and over again that you can make it a reality. Your mind will eventually figure out a way to bring it into being. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — The way you quietly go about handling one responsibility after another will capture the attention of others. Don’t be surprised if your modus operandi is copied by more than a few people. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Without even realizing it, you’re likely to be a strong, independent pillar upon which associates can depend today. When asked to help, you’ll do so without any fanfare or puffery. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Larger-than-life feats that others think of as being nearly impossible to do are what you’ll tend to tackle today. It’ll be your intelligence and determination that will enable you to accomplish such deeds. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — One of the principal reasons your popularity is on the ascent at this time is the wonderful gift you display for making every person you’re with feel truly significant and interesting. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It’ll be no problem for you to solve issues that perplex others because your faculties for doing so are keener then usual. Once you focus on a dilemma, the answer will simply be there. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Arrangements or situations that require a collective effort will be your cup of tea. You’ll not only be a good team player, but will know how to get everyone else focusing on the same goal. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Changing conditions at work could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Remain calm when things are turning about, and let events show you what they have to offer. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — This could be a busier than usual day, but if you schedule your duties for early on, you should have ample time left to comfortably go with the flow of events as they unfold. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — The reason why this day will turn out so well for you is your marvelous faculty for turning negative developments into constructive ones. Each happening will encourage positive thinking. Aries (March 21-April 19) — This is a good day for communicating with those who can do you some good. If there is one individual in particular who has lots of connections, cozy up to that person. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Although it may not be perfect, your material well-being could start to take a big turn for the better. Use whatever you can whenever you can.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: Last Sunday, I wore a New York Yankees sweatshirt and a pressed pair of jeans and tennis shoes to church because I was going on a picnic afterward. A friend was picking me up at the church, so I wasn’t going to have a chance to go home and change my clothes. Yesterday, one of the elder church members told my mother that I was improperly dressed for church and it would have been better if I had stayed at home rather than dress the way I did. This embarrassed my mom and she’s really mad at me now. She said I could never attend church dressed that way again. I probably won’t, but I thought going to church was important, not how a person was dressed. Do you agree? — Ken, Elizabeth, N.J. Ken: It’s much more important to attend church than to dress to the nines. As far as I’m concerned, the elder church member who spoke to — and embarrassed your mother — has misplaced priorities. Your looks were less important than your presence at the house of worship. Still, in some churches, dressing in one’s Sunday best is part of the tradition, and anyone who shows up looking like an advertisement for the New York Yankees is going to stand out like a sore thumb. You could have avoided that situation by wearing your Sunday best to church and bringing your jeans and sweatshirt in a gym bag, and then changing before you departed for the picnic. P.S.: Is it possible the church elder might have been a Boston Red Sox fan? Yankee and Red Sox fans, at times, are not compatible. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

pating will create a rift. Should I stay true to myself and honor Dad in my own quiet way, or fake it and go to this annual shindig that is really about my brother? — Manipulated in Massachusetts Dear Manipulated: That’s a decision I can’t make for you. You need to weigh the benefits of honoring your MOTHER’S feelings against the fallout your absence would create. While this celebration may have been your brother’s idea, he really doesn’t figure into the equation. If your father died at 87, your mother may not be around much longer and you’ll have many years to honor your dad in your own quiet way. Dear Abby: After a year together my boyfriend has broken up with me. He’s going through a divorce and says that right now is not a good time for us. I’m confused because he has told me I’m the best thing that ever happened to him.
He wants to keep in touch and says that maybe, down the road when things are different, we can get back together. My friends and family think he’s using me as a standby so he can live the single life but still have someone waiting on the side. I’m left wondering, does he want to get past his issues or is he just playing games?— Not a Game-Player, Pleasanton, Calif. Dear Not a Game-Player: Neither one. You have been dumped. The technique your “boyfriend” used is called the “easy letdown.” Don’t count on getting back together “down the road” or you’ll waste more time on a losing proposition. In the future, hook up with a man who’s available and you may have better luck.

Water softeners not harmful to health Dear Dr. Gott: I reside in an independent-living complex. When it was built in 2001, they put soft water throughout our water system on both the hot and cold faucets. Could this cause problems such as high blood pressure, neuropathy, dementia and more? Many of the residents have had to take pills for high blood pressure and were never on them before. Some of these people are over 70 years old. Many of our residents are in the early stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s. It is scary knowing that possibly the salt water in our water system could be causing these problems. A faucet in the basement of our building isn’t connected to the system, so residents go there for a supply. The complex owner says he checked with a doctor who says the amount of salt in the water would not be harmful to us. Do we have a chance of having a real problem here? Should the water be changed? Dear Reader: Hard water causes a buildup of chemicals in household pipes, stains sinks, discolors laundry, and dries out skin following bathing. That said, the National Research Council has gone on record stating that drinking hard water does not pose health risks. While I don’t know what the condition of the water is in your area, obviously the owner of your complex determined that installing a water-softener system was the best way to go financially in the long run. The amount of sodium added to any system depends on the hardness of the water, but treated water doesn’t appear to add any significant amount of salt to the diet. Generally speaking, an 8-ounce glass of treated water contains less than 13 milligrams of sodium. The average adult without a history of hypertension requires between 1,500 and 2,400 milligrams of sodium each day. With a history of high blood pressure, the recommended amount holds at 1,500 milligrams. A more likely cause of excessive sodium comes from a person’s diet. One teaspoon of salt contains 230 milligrams of sodium. Adding to that many processed foods, cold cuts, canned goods and soups brings the potential for excessive salt consumption far above the recommended daily allowance. There is an association between Alzheimer’s dementia and aluminum. Perhaps this is what some of your residents refer to. I cannot find any confirming reports of memory loss, Alzheimer’s or neuropathy caused by water-softening systems. A more likely consideration is that the residents of your establishment are aging and are developing diseases and disorders common to an advanced age. That said, it appears that by making a trip to the basement for drinking water, residents who fear potential side effects can bypass the
ASK THE DOCTOR Dr. PETER
problem. I would also recommend that residents request a sodium test be added to their next routine lab work when they visit their physicians. Providing they eat a healthful diet and do not cook with or add salt to their meals, this will be one surefire way to resolve one of the issues.

Dear Abby: I am a soldier currently deployed in Iraq. My unit’s mission has ended, but we must remain here for the next two months with no real mission to occupy our time. Because of this, I — along with other soldiers — spend free time in the gym. Recently, a female American civilian contractor has started working out at the same time I do. She’s gorgeous and wears skimpy, provocative clothing while working out. Because I have not seen a female in civilian clothes for many months, I find it hard not to stare.
