Frank Rankin moves bricks he used as weights to keep a chair held down during the flood outside of his home near Chickasaw Road Wednesday. Rankin said his house, which
was nearly covered by floodwater, is a “disaster inside” and he hopes to make it livable again soon.
Elbow grease, cooperation keys
FEMA, United Way setting up organizational group By Danny Barrett Jr. email@example.com When the Mississippi River rose to its historic mark in May, Frank Rankin’s home near Chickasaw Road went under — and stayed under water — for a month. On Wednesday, Rankin said the wood-frame home is a “disaster inside.” As he rolled window screens back into place, Rankin said recovery and repairs will take plenty of elbow grease. Officials said recovery also will take coordination among homeowners and several agencies. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has received 807 applications for individual assistance in Warren County, said liaison Bob Tribble. A long-term recovery committee to assist flood victims who have applied for federal aid is in the works, he said. “What the long-term recovery committee does is help a person or a family get back into a safe, sound and sanitary home,” Tribble said as 19 people from various

Mississippi River Flood 2011 nonprofit and faith-based organizations met at United Way of West Central Mississippi offices Wednesday. Another session is set for 10 a.m. Wednesday, when the
panel’s membership will be discussed. Assistance that will be offered includes financial advice, help with home rebuilding and supplies, he
said. Individual assistance payouts total $4.2 million in 14 counties declared federal disaster areas due to flooding, with $682,141.12 in Warren County, FEMA has said. More than $2.4 million had been paid out in Tunica County. In Vicksburg, the Mississippi River dropped sixtenths of a foot overnight to 47.8 feet. Its crest at 57.1 feet on May 19 was the highest in Vicksburg since 1927. Stages are expected to remain above the 43-foot flood stage until June 19, according to the National Weather Service River Forecast Center. In Warren County, 1,340 structures have been evacuated, 707 of them primary dwellings. More than 3,200 people have been displaced. A 4-mile polyvinyl mat laid on the westernmost stretch of the Yazoo Backwater Levee could be removed in the coming months, with multiple options including recycling the material, said Henry Dulaney, chief of engineering and construction for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Vicksburg See Flood, Page A7.

WASHINGTON — Merchants triumphed over bankers in a battle for billions Wednesday as the Senate voted to let the Federal Reserve curb the fees that stores pay financial institutions when a customer swipes a debit card. It was murkier, however, whether the nation’s consumers were winners or losers. As a result of the roll call, the Fed will be allowed to issue final rules on July 21 trimming the average 44 cents that banks charge for each debit card transaction. That fee, typically 1 percent to 2 percent of each purchase, produces $16 billion in annual revenue for banks and credit card companies, the Fed estimates. The central bank has proposed capping the so-called interchange fee at 12 cents, though the final plan could change slightly. See Debit, Page A7.
Equipment, wreck blamed in two outages By John Surratt firstname.lastname@example.org Equipment failure and a traffic accident caused two power outages that left more than 2,000 Vicksburg Entergy customers in the dark Wednesday night and early this morning, Entergy spokesman Don Arnold said. Arnold said the first outage, at about 7:24 p.m., was at the utility’s east substation on Porters Chapel Road. It occurred when the connection between a power line and a transformer at the substation failed. He said 1,260 customers in the Porters Chapel, North Frontage Road and Highland Drive areas lost electricity for about three hours. The cause of the outage is under investigation, but lightning might have been a factor, he said. In the second outage, Arnold said, 1,139 customers in the Belva Drive and Grange Hall Road areas off See Power, Page A7.
Vicksburg man gets 27 years in Port Gibson killing By Pamela Hitchins email@example.com A Vicksburg man accused in the shooting death of a Port Gibson man in December has been sentenced in Claiborne County to 27 years in prison, Warren County District Attorney records show. Clyde Wendell Mazie, 3505 N. Washington St., who will be 21 on Saturday, had been
charged with murder following the death of Emmanuel Hedrick, 8231 Gordon Station Road. Hedrick, who was 20, had been shot in the head and neck Dec. 9 and died at the hospital the following afternoon. Another man, Justin Bailey, 20, 706 College St., suffered a gunshot wound to the leg, Port Gibson police Chief
Calvin Jackson said. Bailey, at whose house the shooting occurred following an argument over a dice game, was treated and released, Jackson said. Avoiding a trial on the murder charge, Mazie pleaded guilty to manslaughter and aggravated assault and was sentenced by Claiborne County Circuit Judge Lamar Pickard to 20 years on
the first charge and seven on the second, to be served consecutively, records show. Mazie had also faced multiple criminal charges in Warren County. He was arrested March 3, 2010, on seven counts of business burglary following a string of what Vicksburg police called “smash and grabs” in 2009, and on April 5, 2010, for possession
of a stolen firearm, court records showed. He was out of jail on a $10,000 bond when Hedrick’s shooting took place. Tuesday, the Warren County charges against Mazie were dismissed by Circuit Judge M. James Chaney on the recommendation of District Attorney Ricky Smith because of Mazie’s Claiborne County sentencing.

JACKSON, Miss. — Two lawyers awarded $14 million for their work to collect more than $100 million for the state have told the Mississippi Supreme Court that no attorney would work for the state if he or she had to depend on the Legislature for compensation. The Supreme Court heard arguments Wednesday in a lawsuit that attacks a law that allows the attorney general to hire lawyers from outside his office to handle legal cases. A Hinds County judge in 2010 upheld $14 million in fees paid to two attorneys for handling a state lawsuit against telecommunications giant MCI. An attorney for State Auditor Stacey Pickering said the money the attorneys received for pursuing the MCI case on behalf of the state is public funds and can be appropriated only by the Legislature.
project to complete Katrina restoration and elevation to 25 feet, quadrupling the port’s capacity. The port has been redesigned as it is rebuilt for a modernized container operation, including automated equipment to move cargo. Community Development Block Grant money from the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Department, earmarked for Katrina recovery, is paying for the restoration and elevation. The port has received a total of $570 million. The port is handling about as many as it did before Katrina hit Aug. 29, 2005, when it was headed for a record year. The port is adding a total of 84 acres to the West Pier — work that began years ago, but was demolished by Katrina.
4 arrested in holdup of Pay Day Loans store
La. water supplier sentenced for violation
LAUREL, Miss. — An employee at a Pay Day Loans business is among four people arrested in a holdup reported there over the weekend, Laurel police said. Detective Kevin Flynn said that nobody was hurt in the holdup Saturday. He said two men with a handgun tied up the two employees and put them in a store room, and left with an undetermined amount of cash. He said 20-year-old Raven Hicks was arrested on an embezzlement charge, and 20-year-old Ronald Drummond of Vossburg and 21-year-old William Bradford and 27-year-old Gregory Longmire, both of Laurel, were arrested on a charge of grand larceny.
MONROE, La. — The owner of Louisiana Land and Water Co. has been sentenced to 21 months in prison for violating multiple federal pollution laws.

Pruett was indicted in June 2009 on charges involving violations of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act — commonly referred to as the Clean Water Act — at more than a half-dozen of the systems owned or operated by Pruett. Pruett was convicted of six counts of failure to provide monitoring records, one count of failure to provide proper operation and maintenance of a wastewater treatment facility and one count relating to the illegal discharge of wastewater effluent.

Judge: Judicial bribery convictions will stand By Jack Elliott Jr. The Associated Press JACKSON — A federal judge Wednesday refused to throw out the convictions of imprisoned ex-attorney Paul Minor and two former judges. U.S. District Judge Henry Wingate heard arguments on the defense motions but said
if there was any error in the judicial bribery trial, it was harmless. “The jury found facts establishing guilt,” Wingate said. Now, Minor and former Harrison County judges Wes Teel and John Whitfield must be resentenced because a federal appeals court vacated their bribery convictions in
2009. The appeals court upheld other convictions, including honest services fraud against each of the men and racketeering against Minor. Minor was sentenced to 11 years. Teel was sentenced to nearly six years in the case. Whitfield was sentenced to more than nine years. Wingate heard pleas from
attorneys for both that the t wo a i l i n g former jurists be sentenced to time served. All three have served about 42 months of their sentences.

CAMP SHELBY (AP) — Two Air Force Reserve cadets were taken to a hospital by ambulance and 75 others by bus after a lightning strike, a Camp Shelby spokesman said. The lightning hit a power pole Wednesday near tents for Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets. Army National Guard Maj. Deidre Musgrave said reserve cadets from around the U.S.were at the base for a two-week training stint. She said all were responsive and stable. Camp Shelby, near Hattiesburg, is the nation’s largest state-owned military training center.
Jackson district sued over punishments By Molly Davis The Associated Press JACKSON — Civil rights advocates have filed suit against Jackson’s public school district, claiming officials at one alternative school respond to minor violations by shackling children to railings and poles for hours at a time. Alternative schools largely serve black students and pupils with special needs, and critics of the Capital City Alternative School in Jackson say the excessive punishment at the schools makes such students more likely to drop out of school — and commit crimes later in life. The Southern Poverty Law Center filed suit Wednesday in U.S. District Court. The suit
names Jackson Public Schools and Capital City Alternative School officials and seeks class-action status on behalf of all students at the school. The complaint says the excessive punishment violates the U.S. Constitution and school board policy. According to school board policy, handcuffs should only be used when a student is an “imminent danger” to himself, others or property — and the restraint should immediately be removed when the student is complying and is no longer dangerous. But the lawsuit, filed in the U.S. court for the Southern District of Mississippi, tells of students who say they were restrained in a harmful way. The sole plaintiff is an eighth-
grade boy identified only as A.M., who the suit says has a history of ADD, asthma and seizures. He reports having been handcuffed to a pole in the gym for several hours, multiple times each year since the fourth grade. The complaint says the punishment causes humiliation. The suit says the punishment was given for violating the school’s dress code and talking back. “An objectively reasonable school administrator and school safety officer would know that handcuffing a child, especially a child with known emotional and medical conditions, to a rail for hours over multiple days solely as a punishment for minor misconduct is unlawful and unreasonable,” according to the complaint.

One arrested in burning of Lamar church HATTIESBURG (AP) — A suspect has been arrested in a fire that destroyed a church Monday. Colby Williamson, 20, was arrested Monday night and charged with burning or destruction of a church or other place of worship, Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel said. Rocky Branch Missionary Baptist Church between Sumrall and the Oloh community was declared a total loss. Volunteer fire departments from Oloh, Hickory Grove, Central Lamar and Pine Ridge responded to the fire at about 4 a.m. There were no injuries in the blaze. Williamson was arrested by county arson investigators. If convicted, Rigel said Williamson faces a maximum of 30 years in state prison and might be required to pay to cover damage to the church.
prognosis is favorable and she expects to begin treatment shortly. The Blancos a r e g r at e ful for your support and Kathleen ask for your Blanco prayers,” Centanni said in a statement. About six in one million people are diagnosed with the cancer, according to
Centanni. “Gov. Blanco encourages everyone, regardless of the quality of their vision, to get routine, comprehensive eye exams. This dangerous form of cancer has no symptoms and can only be detected through such an exam,” she said. Lawmakers and Gov. Bobby Jindal on Wednesday wished Blanco well, saying they were praying for her speedy recovery.

Senate again avoids dealing with budget Recently, Republicans on the Senate Budget Committee put out a statement saying, “Today marks the 750th day since the Democrat-led Senate last passed a budget.” The failure of last year’s Democratic Congress to pass a budget was a contributing factor to the mess Congress now finds itself in. One hopes this year will be different, but maybe not. It looks like the Republicans will get to periodically update their timeline, because the same day Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, D-N.D., announced that he was delaying final committee consideration of a 2012 budget. Conrad’s reasoning for the delay is that the budget resolution, which can’t be filibustered and needs only a simple majority, may be needed to pass parts of whatever agreement is reached to raise the debt ceiling. Those bipartisan negotiations are being led by Vice President Joe Biden. If the $14.295 trillion debt limit is not raised, the Treasury says the U.S. government
will begin defaulting on its obligations around Aug. 2. Even though economists and the financial markets say it’s a really bad idea, Congress will quite likely bump up against that deadline, and the impetus for any agreement may not be the country’s creditworthiness but the fact that lawmakers are due to go on a month long vacation. However, that will put Congress in another of its regular fits of tardiness. The 12 bills that fund the coming year’s government operations are supposed to be passed by the Oct. 1 start of the new fiscal year. The House has just begun work on those bills, and without a budget, the Senate committees don’t know how much money they’ll have to work with. There were hopes that a bipartisan “Gang of Six” senators would come up with a grand compromise on deficit reduction that, in addition to encompassing the budget, would agree on tax increases and entitlement cuts. But those hopes faded this past week when conservative Sen.
30 YEARS AGO: 1981
Tom Coburn, R-Okla., pulled out of the group. Conrad is said to have a finished budget in his pocket, one calling for $4 trillion in deficit cuts over 10 years, more than President Barack Obama’s budget but less than Republicans are demanding. The problem with adopting a budget is that it will make some people very unhappy. The House-passed budget, crafted by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., contained a widely unpopular plan to begin replacing Medicare with a voucher system, handing Democrats a significant campaign issue for 2012. Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, seeking to spare his members political pain, said he would not whip votes for the budget, leaving individual Republicans free to vote on the measure as they please. That led The Hill newspaper to headline: “McConnell leaves Ryan budget twisting in wind.” But to draft a budget is necessarily to choose. It’s time for Senate Democrats to choose — and soon.

Elected judges face tough political decision on eminent domain STARKVILLE – The one issue in which Republican Gov. Haley Barbour in great measure knocked heads with his political base in Mississippi is the contentious issue of eminent domain the legal process by which the government can take private property when it is deemed to be in the public’s interest. The national debate over eminent domain reached fever pitch in 2009 as part of the national backlash against a U.S. Supreme Court ruling expanding government authority to take private land. Since the high court ruled 5-4 in 2005 in Kelo v. City of New London, Conn., that the city had authority to take homes for a private development project, 43 states have enacted laws aimed at neutering or weakening eminent domain laws. In a strategy developed and nurtured in the Republicancontrolled state Senate, three initiatives will be on the 2011
The national debate over eminent domain reached fever pitch in 2009 as part of the national backlash against a U.S. Supreme Court ruling expanding government authority to take private land.
statewide ballot that should be political catnip to conservative voters eminent domain, personhood and voter identification. Barbour is a longtime advocate of voter identification and all things pro-life. But Barbour believes the eminent domain reforms proposed by the Legislature and by the voter initiative on the issue will be a dangerous and unnecessary obstacle to the state’s ongoing economic development efforts. Barbour pitched a veto shutout through his two terms as governor. His legislative vetoes have never been overridden. The closest Barbour has come
to losing a veto fight was in 2010 when some fellow Republicans turned on him in the battle over eminent domain. But Barbour enlisted help from loyal Republicans and Democrats to stave off that challenge in the state Senate after the House voted to override Barbour’s veto of the eminent domain bill. Now comes Barbour’s Mississippi Development Authority executive director Leland Speed the successful private real estate developer filing suit in Hinds County Circuit Court against Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann to stop the eminent domain initiative. Speed
maintains that the initiative is a solution in search of a problem. The state Supreme Court, Speed has argued, has protected property rights by ruling correctly in prior eminent domain disputes. Speed has also argued that stronger eminent domain restrictions would impede the state’s future economic development efforts, saying that the state would not have such assets as the Nissan plant, the Stennis Space Center and the Ross Barnett Reservoir without existing eminent domain laws. “Approximately 119,692 Mississippi citizens signed petitions to place eminent domain on the general election ballot,” Hosemann said. “By state law, I am required, and I intend, to place the initiative on the ballot unless otherwise ordered to do so by the Supreme Court.” The key issue is whether or not the eminent domain initiative changes the state’s Bill of Rights, as Speed contends. The state Supreme Court has been
asked to consider that very legal question in another appeal of a 2011 ballot initiative on personhood. Here’s where the politics of judicial elections make Speed’s eminent domain lawsuit and the personhood appeal dicey at best. Judges who rule with Speed on eminent domain and “against” personhood will carry those labels for good or ill into their own next re-election bids. Speed is correct in that the state’s high court has traditionally been very protective of landowner’s rights in eminent domain cases and that the initiative reform indeed seems an overreaction to the federal Kelo ruling that could seriously harm competitive economic development efforts. But getting elected judges to rule that way on such a volatile political issue may be a tall order indeed. • Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House now says it will respond to detailed questions on the U.S. mission in Libya within a two-week deadline set by the House in a resolution approved last week. Aides to President Barack Obama had previously brushed off the nonbinding resolution, calling it unhelpful and unnecessary. The White House suggested earlier this week it had
ence in return would be very modest. The only other suggestion you might BRUCE consider is, rather than buying E Bonds, buy stocks of major companies in your grandchildren’s names with a parent as the trustee, assuming that your son is honorable. Eventually, they will have to be changed over. At that time the stocks can be explained to the children and how much grandma loved them and provided these things for them.

no plans to formally respond to the questions posed in the measure because officials were already providing details President Barack in dozens of Obama briefings with lawmakers on Capitol Hill. While officials maintain that
those briefings are sufficient, the White House now says it will also respond specifically to the questions in the resolution, which was sponsored by House Speaker John Boehner. “We will answer the questions in that resolution within the time frame that he specifies,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Wednesday. The deadline for providing answers on the opera-
tion’s objective, its costs and its impact on the nation’s two other wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is June 17. Carney said the White House decision to directly respond to the House resolution is “in the spirit that we have answered questions that members have had in the past.” He would not say how the White House would go about providing its response.
‘She hasn’t missed a beat’
Bin Laden’s Congressman’s wife learns she’s pregnant, writings heads overseas for work as scandal swirls under study NEW YORK (AP) — Saddened by the disclosure of her husband’s online sexual antics, Rep. Anthony Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, is on a weeklong overseas trip with her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, as another disclosure puts her even more in the unwelcome public eye: She is pregnant. It was the latest twist in Rep. Anthony Weiner a series of eyepopping revelations surrounding Weiner, D-N.Y., and the sex scandal that could force the onetime rising political star to resign from Congress. A spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday that he had sent explicit photographs to women, as an X-rated photo Weiner purportedly took of himself made its way around several online gossip sites. Sources close to Weiner and Abedin disclosed Wednesday that the couple is expecting a child, their first. Philippe Reines, a State Department spokesman and Abedin friend, had no comment. The unfolding saga has cast an unwanted glare on the glamorous Abedin, one of the most private members of Clinton’s intensely loyal team of advisers. Starting work as an intern for Clinton in 1996, Abedin helped the former first lady weather
The associated press
Huma Abedin heads to a meeting in Abu Dhabi today. the storm surrounding President Bill Clinton’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky and his impeachment in 1998 by Congress. But the roles have shifted, and it’s now Clinton’s turn to offer solace to Abedin. Abedin was with Weiner in New York following his news conference Monday in which he acknowledged sending inappropriate texts and photos to several women over about three years and publicly apologized to her for the pain he had caused. “I love my wife very much, and we have no intention of splitting up over this,” Weiner said through tears. Abedin did not appear at Weiner’s side as he faced the media, but friends said her
absence did not mean she wasn’t supporting him during the crisis. They said she went ahead Wednesday and accompanied Clinton to the Persian Gulf and Africa because she has not let the controversy get in the way of her professional duties. “She is on the trip because it’s her job, and she hasn’t missed a beat throughout,” Reines said. Abedin was present today at Clinton’s meeting with the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Mohammed bin Zayed. Abedin was smiling and shook hands with the crown prince and his entourage. Abedin has no plans to speak publicly about her husband’s troubles. Friends describe Abedin as more saddened than angry over her husband’s behavior.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Everyone Osama bin Laden ever wrote to, spoke to or even mentioned in the volumes of correspondence seized from his Pakistan hideout is under new scrutiny, U.S. officials say. Surveillance has been stepped up on possible terrorist targets around the world, as intelligence experts near the end of decrypting and translating material seized from the bin Laden compound. The trove of Osama bin material has Laden helped fill in the blanks on how known al-Qaida operatives work and think, and where they fit in the organization. The CIA and other U.S. counterterror agencies have sharpened their focus on some midlevel members of the group whom they now believe may be more important than originally thought, after reading their exchanges with their fallen leader. The al-Qaida terrorists are keenly aware America is watching, and one official said at least two changed travel plans to avoid becoming the target of another Navy SEAL raid or some other form of U.S. counterterrorist action.
Judges: Health care challenge raises economic issues ATLANTA (AP) — Judges on a federal appeals court panel Wednesday repeatedly raised questions about President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, expressing unease with the requirement that virtually all Americans carry health insurance or face penalties. All three judges on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals panel questioned whether upholding the landmark law could open the door to Congress adopting other economic mandates. The Atlanta panel did not rule on the lawsuit brought by 26 states, a coalition of small businesses and private individuals who urged the three to side with a federal judge in Florida who struck down
smart money Q: I don’t have a lot of money to invest in my two grandchildren’s education, but for their birthdays and holidays I purchased Series E Savings Bonds. At some point, I would like them to see this stack of bonds so they know that they came from Grandma through the years. My son says I should put this in a 529 education account. I am only talking about a couple of hundred dollars a year. Do you think I am foolish? — Chris, via email A: No, I don’t think you are foolish. If there was substantial amounts of money involved a 529 education account, which has very definite tax advantages, may very well be the way to go. If it’s over a period of 20 years, we are dealing with only a few thousand dollars in the aggregate. While E Bonds are not a good investment at this point, the differ-

But the pointed questions about the so-called individual mandate during almost three hours of oral arguments suggests the panel is considering whether to rule against at least part of the federal law to expand health coverage to tens of millions of Americans.

Roger Vinson of Florida to invalidate the entire law, from the Medicare expansion to a change that allows adult children up to age 26 to remain on their parents’ insurance. The government contends that the law falls within its powers to regulate interstate commerce. Chief Judge Joel Dubina, who was tapped by Republican President George H.W. Bush, struck early by asking the government’s attorney “if we uphold the individual mandate in this case, are there any limits on Congressional power?”

Telethon on MPB June 25 to benefit flood victims A telethon to benefit flood and tornado victims in Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee will broadcast live from Jackson at 7 p.m. June 25. Funds raised from the “Rise for Relief” event will go to the Red Cross and will assist people in communities in the three states most affected by the disasters, a release from Mississippi Public Broadcasting said. “Recently, our region of the United States has seen some of the greatest devastation since Hurricane Katrina due to tornadoes and floods,” said Jay Woods, acting director at MPB, which will host the telethon in its studio. “This year, images of rising water, flattened communities and individuals who have lost loved ones, property and livelihoods have flooded

Victorious merchants said the lowered fees should let them drop prices, banks said they could be forced to boost charges for such services as checking accounts to make up for lost earnings and each side challenged the other’s claims. Consumer groups were not a united front, either: While the consumer group U.S. PIRG said consumers would benefit, the Consumer Federation of America took no formal stance but said it was
concerned about what both industries might do. In Wednesday’s vote, senators trying to thwart the Fed’s rules needed 60 votes to prevail but fell six votes short, 54-45. That delivered a victory for Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., the Senate’s No. 2 Democrat, who muscled the provision into last year’s financial overhaul law requiring the Fed’s action. Durbin’s support on Wednesday represented an erosion from last year, when
the Senate included Durbin’s provision in the overhaul bill on a 64-33 vote. Much of the drop was explained by a dozen senators — including nine Democrats — who switched from backing Durbin in 2010 to voting to delay the Fed action on Wednesday. Of the 12, just four are seeking re-election next year: Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; Ben Nelson, D-Neb.; Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich.; and Roger Wicker, R-Miss.
Thirty-five Republicans joined 19 Democrats in backing the unsuccessful effort to block the Fed. Thirty-two Democrats, 12 Republicans and an independent voted to let the central bank move ahead, while Sen. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., did not vote. Wednesday’s roll call shot down a proposal by Sens. Jon Tester, D-Mont., and Bob Corker, R-Tenn., that would have delayed the Fed rule for a year.

Halls Ferry tennis courts get the blues By Jeff Byrd firstname.lastname@example.org
Gutsy victory The Atlanta Braves haven’t been scoring a lot of runs, but rookie Freddie Freeman came through in the 10th inning. Story/B2
On TV 8 p.m. ABC - Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks host the Miami Heat, who got just eight points from star LeBron James, in pivotal Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
The tennis courts at Halls Ferry Park are sporting a new hue of bright blue. The new playing surface is a continuation of the improvements tennis director Rick Shields has brought to the Halls Ferry Road facility. Other improvements include banners promoting recent state champions from the Mississippi High School Activities Association tennis tournaments and a summerlong weekly morning tennis camp for Warren County’s youth. “The United States Tennis Association has gone to that color for many of its tourna-
ments and that’s what we opted to go with,” Shields said. “It’s livened up the courts a good bit and it looks great.” A record number of kids with rackets is giving a big boost for the sport’s future in Vicksburg. That’s a big goal of Shields, who played college tennis at Alcorn State. “We have close to 65 kids here each morning, Monday through Wednesday,” Shields said. “They are getting instruction in how to play the game not only from me, but Coach Leonard Banks, and many of our recent state champion players like Christine Figueroa, Steven Cialone and Michael Foley.” Foley, who won a Class 1A
doubles title with Cialone back in May as an eighthgrader at St. Aloysius, was working a new group of potential stars on Wednesday. He likes how Shields, who is his coach at St. Al, has improved the facility and brought a teaching emphasis to the youth camp. Building a diverse program is another Shields goal. “If you look at the camp makeup, it’s pretty evenly divided between girls and boys, black and white,” Shields said. “What’s even better, is that we have plenty of good athletes. We’ve got a big group from St. Francis along with some from the city. But they are all here getting acclimated to tennis.”

Sidelines Mississippi Braves drop third in a row
The Mississippi Braves continue to sink like a stone in a pond, as they dropped their third game in a row to the Montgomery Biscuits 10-5 on Wednesday at Riverwalk Park. The Biscuits scored all 10 of their runs in the first four innings, as another M-Braves’ starter struggled for the second straight night. Paul Clemens was shelled for 11 hits and 10 runs, seven of them earned, in just 32⁄3 innings. Half of Montgomery’s runs came on Steven Vogt home runs — a two-run shot in the first, and a three-run shot in the second. The M-Braves (2337) trailed 8-0 after two frames, but managed to come back with three runs in the top of the third behind three straight hits. Mycal Jones and Tyler Pastornicky each singled, and a Willie Cabrera double brought in the first run. Montgomery pitcher Shane Dyer was called for a balk to bring home another, and a Linares groundout scored Cabrera pulled the M-Braves to within five at 8-3. Two more unearned Montgomery runs crossed in the fourth to extend the lead to 10-3. Cory Harrilchak led off the eighth inning with his third home run over the right field wall.

Mississippi State players congratulate pitcher Daryl Norris after defeating Austin Peay in the Atlanta Regional. The Bulldogs won the regional and will play Florida Friday morning at 11 on ESPN2 in the super regional round.
Bulldogs aim for Omaha Mississippi State will face formidable foe Florida in super regional round By David Brandt The Associated Press STARKVILLE — When Mississippi State hired John Cohen to lead its baseball program in 2008, the new coach’s hard-edged personality was a huge change from laid-back predecessor Ron Polk. The results weren’t always fun. But after two rough seasons plunged the program to the bottom of the Southeastern Conference, the Bulldogs have resurfaced on the national scene in Cohen’s third season.
On the air Miss. State at Florida • Friday, 11 a.m. ESPN2 • Saturday, 11 a.m., ESPN • Sunday, Noon, ESPN* Radio: 105.5 FM *if necessary This weekend, Mississippi State (37-23) is playing for a spot in the College World Series when the Bulldogs travel to face Florida (48-16) in the best-of-three super regional round of the NCAA tournament. Senior Ryan Collins is one
of the few players who survived the transition from Polk to Cohen, a former Mississippi State player who led Kentucky to two NCAA Tournaments before being hired by his alma mater. “They’re two totally different coaches — complete opposite ends of the spectrum,” Collins said. “Their personalities and the way things are run in the program — it’s much more intense now and not as laid back. You can win both ways, but it was just a total 180-degree switch and it was a big adjustment.” Polk, who led the Bulldogs
to six College World Series appearances in 29 seasons, was famous for his easygoing demeanor. He’d chomp on cigars in the dugout after games, and was much more likely to share lighthearted stories than rip his team following a tough loss. Cohen is intelligent and can certainly be engaging, but his intensity radiates from the dugout on every pitch. Initially, Cohen’s personality and Polk’s recruits proved to be an oil-and-water mix. The Bulldogs had a 15-44 combined record in the SEC during the 2009 and 2010 seasons .
Travious Relaford, a freshman shortstop at Hinds Community College, was taken in the 44th round by the San Francisco Giants on the final day of the Major League draft on Wednesday. The Union City, Ga. native started 30 of 34 games, hitting .280 in the leadoff spot with five douTravious bles, five Relaford RBIs and eight stolen bases. Draftees have until Aug. 15 to sign. As for the rest of the draft, the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers made a splash in the late rounds for a different reason. Johnathan Taylor and Buddy Lamothe might never play baseball again after accidents left them partially paralyzed. That didn’t matter to the teams that picked them Wednesday. Taylor, an outfielder from the University of Georgia, was a 33rd-round pick of the Rangers, while Lamothe, a reliever from San Jacinto College, was the Astros’ 40th-round selection. Taylor was left paralyzed from the chest down after he broke his neck in March.
New bats will change high school game too A change is coming. Bazinsky Field’s power alleys are about to get a lot lonelier. The home run, once an overblown staple of high school baseball, is about to become as rare as a teetotaler at a keg party. Thanks to Bazinsky Field’s generous confines, home runs were the exception rather than the rule. Now, they’ll be an even smaller exception. Next season, high schools are moving to the same composite bats used by the college game. That means smaller sweet spots and less power. “You’re going to have to play the small ball,” newly
POST SPORTS EDITOR
hired Vicksburg baseball coach Ryan Grey said. “You see teams that hit 150 home runs and they hit 75 this year. We’re going have a very speedy team and we want to steal a lot of bases. That’s always been an aspect of Vicksburg High School baseball.” Just look at the statis-
tics from the college game. According to the NCAA, batting averages dropped from .309 in 2010 to .279 at the midway point of 2011. Scoring was down from 6.98 runs per contest to 5.63. But the most telling drop was home runs per game, down from 0.94 to 0.47, a nearly 50 percent drop. It will be a boon to MLB scouts, who will be able to tell who has real power and who has power thanks to a supercharged bat. But it’s not just a competitive issue, but a safety one as well. One problem with the older bats was the speed at which a well-struck ball flew off the barrel. Third base became a danger zone as few possess
the reaction time required to duck out of the way of a hotshot flying at Mach 2. A lot of folks will bemoan the lower power numbers. The home run is exciting. But with the old bats, it happened far too often. Too many average hitters became like Albert Pujols in their ability to drive the ball out of the park. Inflated power numbers in the major leagues was found to be a result of juiced players. Ridiculous power numbers in the college and prep ranks have been the product of juiced bats. Increased drug testing took care of the power surplus in the major leagues. Deadened bats have done the same in
college baseball. Baseball had become all about the home run, to the detriment of pitching and defense. The stolen base, once a powerful weapon, was no longer a big deal. Not any longer. Speed will be gold. So will defense and pitching. Playing that style of baseball is derisively termed small ball. But what was once a term of derision will become the standard. Just call it baseball like it was meant to be played. •

MLB Freeman helps Braves beat Marlins MIAMI — Derek Lowe took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, loaded the bases and departed with his team up by two runs. Then the real excitement began. The Atlanta Braves survived that scoring threat, gave up the lead one strike from victory, went ahead again in the 10th and escaped another jam to beat the Florida Marlins 3-2. “The most important thing is we found a way to win,” Lowe said. “We’ve been in a lot of tight games. We’re used to it in a strange way. The majority of our games are this way. It comes down to one pitch.” Freddie Freeman singled home the go-ahead run in the 10th. The wild loss extended the Marlins’ losing streak to seven games, their longest since April 2009. Six of the defeats have been by a single run. After the game Florida announced the firing of batting coach John Mallee. He’ll be replaced by Eduardo Perez, son of Hall of Famer Tony Perez.
NFl Players, owners continue discussions NEW YORK — Whether they are meeting in secret locations or in the middle of Times Square at rush hour, talks between NFL owners and players are a good sign. Commissioner Roger Goodell has been saying that ever since the lockout began on March 12. Players, agents and lawyers familiar with the negotiating process second the notion. Both sides met for a second straight day in New York, with Judge Arthur Boylan joining Goodell and NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith. It was the second time this week that the sides got together. Last week, they met twice near Chicago.
NBA Stern: Labor deal isn’t close DALLAS — Repeating the words several times, David Stern made it clear: NBA owners and players are “very far apart” on a new labor deal. And with the union saying the league hasn’t moved off its harshest demands, it may be hard to get closer in time to prevent a lockout. Representatives of the owners and players completed a second day of meetings, scheduled two more for next week, and expressed hope.

Rapper Ja Rule gets 2 years in gun case Ja Rule headed to prison Wednesday for up to two years in a gun case, bidding a stoic but upbeat farewell-for-now to family and fans at a New York courthouse. The multiplatinum-selling rapper and actor — whose gravelly voice, thuggish tough talk and duets with R&B divas made him one of rap’s stars in the early 2000s — signed autographs for fans on his way to be sentenced. He pleadJa Rule ed guilty in December to attempted criminal weapon possession; the case stemmed from a gun found in his luxury sports car in July 2007. “See y’all later,” he told family and friends in the courtroom audience as he was handcuffed.

Gibson’s ex files appeal over lawyer Mel Gibson’s ex-girlfriend has asked an appeals court to disqualify the Oscar winner’s attorneys handling a bitter custody dispute because she consulted with one of their partners in a paternity dispute with another actor. Attorneys for Oksana GrigoMel Oksana Gibson Grigorieva rieva asked the California 2nd District Court of Appeal to intervene in the case on Monday. They sought to either disqualify Gibson’s attorneys or require a judge hearing the case to review records of the Russian musician’s dealings with the firm. Grigorieva met with a partner in the firm of Kolodny and Anteau in 2008 at Gibson’s suggestion, while she was dealing with custody issues involving her son with British actor Timothy Dalton, according to court filings.

Black bear outsmarts wildlife officials A young black bear has outsmarted wildlife officials trying to trap it in Washington state. Washington Fish and Wildlife Department agents were tracking the bear Tuesday near Port Orchard. So far, the bear has withstood a tranquilizer dart and resisted a trap baited with doughnuts, marshmallows and maple syrup. Sgt. Ted Jackson said agents are following the bear to make sure it stays away from schools. He said if agents get a clear shot, they’ll try to dart it again. If the bear remains in the area, they’ll try again to trap it and relocate it.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m a 12th grader and will graduate soon. I have been dating my boyfriend for over three years and love him very much. He is the perfect guy for me. We plan to get married eventually. I couldn’t think of being married to anyone else. He feels the same way. In a couple of months, Aaron is moving to Florida to work with his uncle in the construction business. My grandparents live about 15 miles away from his uncle. I would like to move to my grandparents’ house after I graduate, so I can be close to him. I will then look for a job and start saving money for our future. Naturally, my parents don’t like the idea. Your comments, please. — Nameless, Monmouth, Ill. Nameless: Parents are rarely thrilled when their daughter, fresh out of high school, moves 1,000 miles away to be with a boyfriend. It’s fortunate that you could live with your grandparents, but I’d advise you to remain with your parents for five or six months after you graduate, and then move in with your grandparents. You can always return home if things don’t work out. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.
Swift wins video of year at memorable CMT Awards NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Ludacris made a surprise appearance, as did Sheryl Crow’s underwear. Lady Antebellum laid down a funky beat with Charles Kelley doing a Don Henley impression. And a sassy Wynonna Judd put Kid Rock in his place. Actress Kristin Chenoweth’s first CMT Music Awards left quite an impression Wednesday night. “This show is entertaining,” Chenoweth said. “I think the Oscars could learn something from it.” Recent trends Taylor continued as Swift Taylor Swift’s fans gave her the night’s top honor — the fan-voted video of the year award for “Mine” — Miranda Lambert’s “The House That Built Me” continued its extraordinary run and Lambert’s new husband, Blake Shelton, was the night’s only multiple winner. As often is the case at the CMT Awards, though, the show was as memorable for its unlikely mashups and celebrity cross-pollination moments as for its winners. Let’s start with Crow’s underwear, which made a brief appearance after she sang “Collide” with host Kid Rock. The singer wore a short, white skirt as she sat on a stool alongside Kid Rock and briefly flashed the camera as she stood up. It happened in a blink of the eye, but in the age of DVRs the moment went viral on Twitter, something Crow acknowledged about an hour later when she and Sara Evans presented an award. “Well, at least you were wear-

That wasn’t the night’s only surprising moment. Swift joined Shania Twain for their own pre-recorded faux movie trailer of “Thelma & Louise” that included guest appearances by Donald Trump and Kenny Rogers. Justin Bieber induced tears from teenagers as he walked the red carpet with Rascal Flatts. Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and “Dancing With the Stars” champion Hines Ward wore cowboy boots and shook his hips on stage. Lady A turned in one of the night’s most interesting performances. The trio opened with its record-setting single “Just a Kiss” before singer Charles Kelley jumped on the drums as the band switched to Prince’s “Kiss.” Wynonna Judd put Kid Rock in his place and taught him a little something about country on a duet of his “Hell, Yes, I’m Country.” And near the end of the show, fans audibly gasped as Twain slipped and fell on her way to the stage.

Hostess insists glasses are for her eyes only Dear Abby: I am severely myopic and can’t see without my prescription eyewear. Yet people continually ask me if they can “borrow” my glasses to read the menu. (I work as a hostess.) Abby, my glasses are not reading glasses; they are my eyes — literally. When I explain this, I get snorts, grunts and muttered comments that I am “rude.” My husband says I should let them try on my glasses and cut out the explanation, as they would immediately realize that they can’t see through them. I disagree. I think it is inappropriate to even ask, let
DEAR ABBY ABIGAIL
alone become offended when I politely refuse. Abby, I would like to explain the concept of reading glasses versus prescription eyewear: Most people do not walk around with reading glasses fully on their face. Reading glasses are often halfway down the nose or hanging around a person’s
neck so they don’t impair his or her distance vision. If someone is wearing glasses full on his face — they’re usually not reading glasses. If a person is wearing glasses, do not ask to borrow them. Instead, ask if there is a pair of reading glasses at the wait station or host stand. — The Blind Leading the Blind Dear “Blind”: I’m printing your letter, but I warn you — there are none so blind as those who will not see. For a stranger to expect to borrow someone’s glasses is presumptuous. If the bows were bent or the lenses were broken, you’d be in seri-
ous trouble. Talk to your employer about keeping a magnifying glass or several pairs of reading glasses in various strengths available for patrons who have forgotten theirs. Many restaurants do. With our aging demographic, it’s good business, because people order more when they can see the menu.

Antibiotics work well for UTI, kidney infections Dear Dr. Gott: I get frequent UTIs, especially after intercourse. How do I convince my doctor that a low-dosage refillable antibiotic instead of a seven-day treatment is the way to go for my situation? I have taken to saving a pill or two from my prescription so that when I feel the onset of an infection, I can take one pill and drink plenty of water to thwart a full-blown episode. Also, what is your opinion on D-Mannose as a treatment? Dear Reader: Urinary-tract infections are common and are the cause of more than 8 million visits to the doctor every year. The kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra make up the urinary system. The kidneys remove excess amounts of liquid and waste from the blood in the form of urine, balance salts and other blood substances, and help form a hormone that produces red blood cells. The ureters are narrow tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder, where it is stored until emptied through the urethra. An adult passes approximately 48 ounces of urine each day. Generally speaking, urine is sterile. However, an infection can occur when bacteria enter
ASK THE DOCTOR Dr. PETER
and multiply in any part of the urinary tract. UTIs most commonly occur in the bladder or urethra and as the result of the bacterium Escherichia coli, or E. coli. When the bladder is affected, a condition known as cystitis (inflammation of the bladder) might occur. Cystitis can also occur without infection. If not treated properly, the infection can back up into the kidneys, a condition known as pyelonephritis. Kidney infections can be difficult to treat, requiring extended courses of antibiotic therapy and possible hospitalization. Women are more prone to frequent UTIs than are men, and almost 20 percent of the women having a UTI will have another one. Of that amount, 30 percent will have another, and a whopping 80 percent will have a recurrence from that group. Even when E. coli is to blame, there are differences in the bacteria present, indicat-
ing diverse infections. This process alone may be why your physician will not give you a standing order for an antibiotic. It is, however, an acceptable practice to give women a refillable prescription for a single, low-dose antibiotic to be taken immediately following intercourse to prevent an infection. Drinking plenty of fluids to help flush bacteria from your system, emptying the bladder soon after intercourse, and avoiding irritating feminine-hygiene products may help you prevent an infection. Instead of sitting in a tub, take a shower. Avoid caffeine, alcohol and spicy foods when you experience any symptoms. Because of your history, you should talk to your physician about what other options you have, rather than waiting until a full-blown infection occurs. Perhaps a referral to a urolo-
gist is in order. The D-Mannose to which you refer is a simple sugar for the treatment of UTIs and is relatively new to the herbal market. It is a naturally occurring rare saccharide in some plant and food substances and, depending on the concentration of bacteria present, is purported to reduce symptoms in 24 to 48 hours and clear them in three days. Many of the products marketed appear to have 400 milligrams of cranberry extract added to enhance its effectiveness. I can neither endorse nor pan the product because I don’t know enough about it. If you choose to proceed, be careful to check the ingredient label before purchase.
