Man gets 20 years, maximum, in Easter Sunday killing By Pamela Hitchins phitchins@vicksburgpost.com

WEATHER

Adam Rader was handed the maximum sentence of 20 years in the Mississippi State Penitentiary Friday for shooting a man over a missing bottle of Crown Royal whiskey at a party on Easter Sunday. Avoiding a jury trial on murder charges, Rader, 27, 103 Cross St., pleaded guilty May 3 to manslaughter in

the death of 25-year-old Danny Miller on April 12, 2009. Rader heard his sentence in Warren Adam County CirRader cuit Court without reacting. “This was a difficult decision, considering the testimony your attorney pre-

sented on your behalf,” said Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick, who presided over a sentencing hearing May 28 at which Rader’s father pleaded for leniency. “Your father is a respected man in this community and has worked hard all his life.” But Patrick added that he was sentencing Rader, not his father. “This community is better than to have a life lost over a bottle of Crown Royal,” he said. Rader is also

subject to a $10,000 fine, but it was not clear in court if Patrick had assessed it. “Justice has been served,” said the victim’s sister, Retha Miller, outside the courtroom with other family members and friends after the sentencing. “Now my brother can rest. We finally got some closure.” Miller, who lived at 107 Belva Drive, was killed as guests were leaving an afternoon party at a home in the

Two from Vicksburg part of Audubon aid By David Hopper dhopper@vicksburgpost.com Employees of Vicksburg’s Lower Mississippi River program office of the National Audubon Society are working to help out in the wake of the Gulf oil spill. “People across the country are frustrated. They want to help,” said Bruce Reid, director of the local Audubon office, located on Washington Street. This week, he traveled to Moss Point to the Pascagoula River Audubon Center, which is functioning as a call center. Up to 30 volunteers at a time contact more than 20,000 people who have signed up to help on the Audubon’s online volunteer database. “They’re terribly concerned, and immediately they started reaching out and saying, ‘I want to do something’,” Reid said. The call center’s “function is to provide that constant communication,” he said. “It’s a constituency of people

who care about what we care about — birds and habitats and communities. They also are scheduling and directing people to certain tasks in a four-state region — Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama and the panhandle of Florida.”

Hundreds of volunteers have been deployed through Audubon to Louisiana to assist in such efforts as the transport and unloading of rescued birds and with communication between boats coming in with rescued birds and teams of people gather-

ing to pick them up. “We’re just trying to be kind of a go-between,” Reid said. David Ringer, a communications coordinator for the Audubon’s Mississippi River See Audubon, Page A3.

BILOXI — Some areas of the Mississippi Sound are being closed to fishing because oil from the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico has been found there, state officials said Friday. The Department of Marine Resources and Department of Environmental Quality said the closure affects state waters only and applies to all commercial and recreational fishing. The irregularly shaped area runs from the south shore of Horn Island east to the Alabama state line. Waters between the shore and the islands off Biloxi and Gulfport are not included, but the closure area moves north to near the shore around Pascagoula Bay and then to the Alabama line. Mississippi’s mainland shore has largely been spared direct impact of the oil spewing from the BP well in the Gulf of Mexico about 50 miles southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River. However, oil had been found previously on some of Mississippi’s easternmost barrier islands. State environmental quality officials said tar balls were found Friday on Horn Island and Petit Bois Island and a streamer of orange oil mousse was seen southeast of Petit Bois. Skimmers were reported working sheens in the Petit Bois area. President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit Gulfport on Monday as part of a two-day, three-state visit to the Gulf Coast to assess the impact of the spill. He’ll See Oil, Page A3.

Vandalized statue in Pittsburgh has Vicksburg connection By Danny Barrett Jr. dbarrett@vicksburgpost.com News of a 4-pound bronze bayonet being broken off a statue at a Pittsburgh military museum has something in common with Vicksburg. The man who created the sculpture also has works on display at the Vicksburg National Military Park.

Police in Pittsburgh are looking for whoever broke the 2-foot sculpted weapon from a statue at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum sometime between March 12 and April 26. A $2,000 reward is being offered for information leading to a conviction. Officials estimate it could cost $10,000 to restore the “Parade Rest”

statue — a 1922 work of Frederick C. Hibbard, whose sculptures at the VNMP include the majestic bronze eagle atop the portico of the Illinois Memorial. VNMP historian Terry Winschel told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review several of the park’s statues and other monuments have plastic replacement parts plated to

match the original. “It’s a cheap fix that looks great,” Winschel told the city’s second-largest daily, who spoke of Hibbard’s status among sculptors of his time. “Hibbard was highly significant, but not in the upper tier” of sculptors of his time, Winschel told the paper. Other Hibbard works in

the 111-year-old federal preserve include the statue of Gen. Ulysses S. Grant and the bust of Confederate Lt. Francis Obenchain. Hibbard, who died in 1950 at age 69, also sculpted the monument on the battlefield at Shiloh — which, together with his works at VNMP, made up See Statue, Page A9.

Glen Allan man convicted in nightclub death A Sharkey County jury this week convicted Andrea Thomas, of Glen Allan, of manslaughter in the 2009 death of 28-year old Roosevelt Montgomery. Thomas, 25, 16 Wildwood St., testified on his own behalf that he shot Montgomery outside an Anguilla nightclub in self-defense, said District Attorney Ricky Smith. Thomas had been charged with murder, but the jury deliberated about an hour and 10 minutes and returned the manslaughter verdict. In addition, Thomas was found guilty of aggravated assault for critically wounding Shawn Montgomery, brother of the deceased, by gunfire in the same fight. He was acquitted of a second aggravated assault charge for wounding his friend, Kendrick Johnson, whom Thomas shot in the foot. Johnson testified on behalf of Thomas, Smith said. The shootings occurred June 7, 2009, around 2 a.m. in the parking lot of Club 14, just east of town. Roosevelt Montgomery, who lived at

court report from court records

2927 Louise Road in Aguilla, was not armed, said Smith. “The defendant had brought a .40-caliber pistol with him to a nightclub,” Smith said after the trial, which was prosecuted by assistant district attorneys Angela Carpenter and Lane Campbell. “I’m glad to see we got a verdict to show that the citizens of Sharkey County won’t tolerate that kind of activity.” A sentencing date for Thomas was not set, but presiding Judge M. James Chaney said it would be in about two weeks, Smith said. Thomas faces up to 20 years and a $10,000 fine on each charge, the DA said. The trial began Monday with jury selection. Testimony was heard Tuesday and Wednesday, with closing arguments and jury deliberations Thursday. In Warren County Circuit Court for the week ending Friday: • Corian Dandre Byers, 31, 1708 Openwood Lane,

pleaded guilty to drive-by shooting and uttering a forgery and was sentenced by Chaney to eight years in prison followed by five years of probation, plus $4,145 in fines and court costs. Byers was arrested Feb. 11, 2007, and Feb. 27, 2007. • Anthony Shawn Culbertson, 29, 114 Choctaw Circle, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of a controlled substance and was sentenced by Chaney to the Ninth Circuit Court Drug Court Program for a period not to exceed five years, plus $2,622.50 in fines and costs. Culbertson was arrested Aug. 19. • Antonio D. Dorsey, 32, 214 Sherman Ave., who pleaded guilty May 10 to aggravated assault, was sentenced by Chaney to 14 years in prison followed by five years of probation, plus $10,322.50 in restitution, fines and costs. Dorsey was arrested April 7, 2009. • Undra Harper, 28, 640 Cedar Hurst, Jackson, pleaded guilty to receiving stolen property and was sentenced by Chaney

to three years in prison followed by five years of probation, plus $2,759.97 in restitution, fines and costs. Harper was indicted by the Warren County Grand Jury in May 2009. • Crystal M. Owens, 27, 800 Walnut St., was found guilty of violating probation and sentenced by Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick to three years in prison, an extended alcohol and drug treatment program and the MDOC restitution center at Flowood to pay $1,322.50 in fines and costs. Owens was arrested in June 2009 for domestic violence-aggravated assault. • Luther Payne, 21, 4126 Azalea Drive, pleaded guilty to receiving stolen property and was sentenced by Chaney to one month and five days in jail followed by one year in the Mississippi Department of Corrections Intensive Supervision Program (house arrest) and then by five years of probation, plus $2,759.97 in restitution, fines and costs. Payne was arrested Jan. 10, 2008.

5 officers charged in post-Katrina shooting death NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Five current or former New Orleans police officers were charged Friday in the shooting death and burning of a New Orleans man during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. According to earlier published reports, police were using a school as a temporary headquarters on Sept. 2, 2005, when a group of men drove up

looking for help for 31-year-old Henry Glover, who had been shot. One of the men reportedly later told investigators that Glover was still in the back seat when a police officer drove off with his car. Glover’s burned remains later were recovered from the charred car when it turned up on a levee near a police station.

Prosecutors would not provide details Friday of what they believe happened. In indictments Friday, former officer David Warren was charged with violating Glover’s rights by allegedly shooting him to death. Along with a charge of unlawful use of a firearm he faces a possible life sentence and a $250,000 fine. Warren was immediately

arrested after the indictment was handed up and is in federal custody, the Department of Justice said in a news release. U.S. Attorney Jim Letten said a federal judge would be asked to order Warren jailed until trial. Letten also said that under some circumstances, prosecutors can seek a death sentence for a civil rights violation.

CADDO GAP, Ark. (AP) — Floodwaters that rose as swiftly as 8 feet an hour tore through a campground packed with vacationing families early Friday, carrying away tents and overturning RVs as campers slept. At least 16 people were killed, and dozens more missing and feared dead. Heavy rains caused the normally quiet Caddo and Little Missouri rivers to climb out of their banks during the night. Around dawn, floodwaters barreled into the Albert Pike Recreation Area, a 54-unit campground in the Ouachita National Forest where cars were wrapped around trees and children’s clothing could be seen scattered across several camp sites. The raging torrent poured through the remote valley with such force that it peeled asphalt off roads and bark off trees. Cabins dotting the river banks were severely damaged. Mobile homes lay on their sides. Two dozen people were hospitalized.

Missing man’s Jeep found off Floweree The vehicle of a Warren County man reported missing more than two weeks ago has been found. Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said the gray, 2000 Jeep Cherokee that Jason Allen Jason Allen Ashley Ashley, 31, was last seen driving was found by Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks officials around 1 p.m. Friday in a remote area off Floweree Road in north Warren County, near the Issaquena County line — a couple of miles from the Floweree community home Ashley shared with his parents and 6-year-old child. “The vehicle had not been wrecked, and there were no immediate signs of any foul play,” Pace said. “The vehicle appeared to be stuck.” Ashley was last seen May 23, leaving Pig Willie’s restaurant and bar on U.S. 61 North, near North Washington Street. “There is no way of knowing why he would have come here,” Pace said. “It is not somewhere he would go on his way home.” The sheriff said deputies searched using aircraft late Friday. “We continue to ask the public to come forward with any information,” he said.

Audubon Continued from Page A1. Initiative who works out of the Vicksburg office, has been helping out in coastal Louisiana. He said assistance is needed with basic tasks such as assembling transport cages for animals. The Audubon Society is not responsible for cleaning birds; that’s being handled by professional firms. “We’re sort of filling in the gaps in the transport process in order to ensure that birds are not left on a hot dock in the sun while they’re waiting for the next line of transport,” said Ringer, who was at Grand Isle, La., when oil first appeared on shore. “I’m looking out into the Gulf and the waves are cresting red almost as far as you can see — that’s terrifying,” he said. “You’re looking into the eyes of these birds that are truly covered in oil — that’s horrifying. Yes, they’re animals but they are suffering, and it’s our fault.” This week, in Moss Point, volunteers were taught how to conduct an Audubon Coastal Bird Survey — identifying birds by spe-

To help For information on Audubon relief efforts, visit www.audubon.org. cies, detecting where they had been oiled and whether they’ve been exhibiting unusual behavior. “Our effort now is to basically roll out and participate

in that consistent data gathering through(out) those four states,” Reid said. The science and conservation staff of the Audubon Society, which has protected birds on the Gulf Coast for decades, has been working to figure out what the oil spill will mean for future efforts in the area, Ringer said. Audubon scored a victory last year when the brown

pelican was removed from the endangered species list — and now it’s in danger again. “This is becoming a fact of life,” Ringer said. “The emergency response in the short term is crucial.” Audubon coastal scientist Dr. G. Paul Kemp says the Mississippi River might actually help keep oil away from some of Louisiana’s marshes,

according to an Audubon press release. The river divides into two branches, the Atchafalaya and the Mississippi, near Natchez. The Old River Control complex regulates the flow of water between, with 70 percent to Mississippi and 30 percent to Atchafalaya. According to the press release, Kemp says that slowly increasing the per-

centage of water going down the main stem of the Mississippi could hold oil offshore longer, giving response teams more time to deal with the spill before it threatens wildlife in the marshes. “The river is a powerful tool, and it is an ally in this crisis,” Kemp said.

Want to boycott Big Oil? Prepare to give up your lifestyle WASHINGTON (AP) — Has the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico got you so mad you’re ready to quit Big Oil? Ready to park the car and take up bike-riding or walking? Well, your bike and your sneakers have petroleum products in them. And sure, you can curb energy use by shutting off the AC, but the electric fans you switch to have plastic from oil and gas in them. And the insulation to keep your home cool, also started as oil and gas. Without all that, you’ll sweat and it’ll be all too noticeable because deodorant comes from oil and gas too. You can’t even escape petroleum products with a nice cool fast-food milkshake — which probably has a petrochemicalbased thickener. Oil is everywhere. It’s in carpeting, furniture, computers and clothing. It’s in the most personal of products like toothpaste, shaving cream, lipstick and vitamin capsules. Petrochemicals are the glue of our modern lives and even in glue, too. Because of that, petrochemicals are in our blood. When the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The associated press

tested humans for environmental chemicals and metals, it recorded 212 different compounds. More than 180 of them are products that started as natural gas or oil. “It’s the material basis of our society essentially,” said Michael Wilson, a research scientist at the University of California Berkeley. “This is the Petrochemical Age.” Louisiana State University environmental sciences professor Ed Overton, who works with the government on oil spill chemistry, said: “There’s nothing that we do on a daily basis that isn’t touched by

petrochemicals.” When in the movie “The Graduate” young Benjamin is given advice about the future, it comes in one word: plastics. About 93 percent of American plastics start with natural gas or oil. “Just about anything that’s not iron or steel or metal of some sort has some petrochemical component. And that’s just because of what we’ve been able to do with it,” said West Virginia University chemistry professor Dady Dadyburjor. Nothing shows how pervasive and malleable petro-

The BP-operated rig Deepwater Horizon exploded April 20 and sank two days later in 5,000 feet of water. Eleven workers were killed. The rig was owned by Transocean Ltd. In an updated on the oil spill in Washington Friday, the Obama administration’s point man for the crisis said it will be at least July before BP has the tankers in place to capture the latest estimates for crude flowing from the blown well. Even if undersea efforts to direct the oil to the surface succeed, it will take weeks to get the proper equipment in place to hold it, Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen said. Allen gave reporters the update a day after a government task force said the blown-out well might have been spewing as much as 2.1 million gallons of oil per day — or twice as much as the government’s previous worst-case estimate.

He acknowledged that reliable numbers on the severity of the crisis are hard to get. “I think we’re still dealing with the flow estimate. We’re still trying to refine those numbers,” he said. Of continuing questions surrounding the administration’s coordination of response efforts with BP PLC, Allen noted a meeting he has invited top company officials to next week, one in which Obama is expected to participate, for at least a part of the time. Asked if a relationship of “trust” had been established between the White House and the British oil company, Allen replied, “We have to have a cooperative, productive relationship for this thing to work, moving forward. ...This has

to be a unified effort moving forward if we are to get this thing solved. If you call that trust, yes.” Allen on Thursday sent a letter to BP’s chairman, CarlHenric Svanberg, summoning him and “any appropriate officials” from BP to meet with Obama and others next Wednesday. The White House said Friday that Svanberg would attend and that the company’s CEO, Tony Hayward, is also assumed to be coming.

chemicals are better than shampoo, said Kevin Swift, director of economics and statistics for the American Chemistry Council, the chemical industry’s trade association. The bottle is plastic. The cap is plastic. The seal and the label, too. The ink comes from petrochemicals and even the glue that holds the label to the bottle comes from oil or gas. “The shampoo — it’s all derived from petrochemicals,” Swift said. “A bottle of shampoo is about 100 percent chemistry.” Just add a bit of natural fragrance. What makes oil and natural gas the seed stock for most of our everyday materials is the element that is the essence of life: carbon. The carbon atom acts as the spine with other atoms attaching to it in different combinations and positions. Each variation acts in new ways, Dadyburjor said. John Warner, a former Polaroid scientist and University of Massachusetts chemistry professor, called petroleum “fundamentally a boring material” until other atoms are added and “you unleash a textbook of modern chemistry.”

don’t appear in nature and “they accumulate in the human body, they persist in the environment,” Berkeley’s Wilson said. The problem is science isn’t quite sure how bad or how safe they are, he said. But plastics also do good things for the environment, the chemistry council says. Because plastics are lighter than metals, they helped create cars that save fuel. A 2005 European study shows that conversion to plastic materials in Europe saved 26 percent in fuel. “Compared to the alternatives, it reduces greenhouse gases (which cause global warming) and saves energy; that is rather ironic,” Swift said.

“Take a very complicated elegant beautiful molecule, bury it in the ground 100 million years, remove all the functionality and make hydrocarbons,” said Warner, one of the founders of the green chemistry movement that attempts to be more ecologically sustainable. “Then take all the toxic nasty reagents and put back all the functional groups and end up with very complicated molecules.” The age of petrochemicals started and took root shortly after World War II, spurred by a government looking for replacements for rubber. “Unfortunately there’s a very dark side,” said Carnegie Mellon chemistry professor Terry Collins. He said the underlying premise of the petrochemical industry is that “those little molecules will be good little molecules and do what they’re designed for and not interact with life. What we’re finding is that premise is wrong, profoundly wrong. What we’re discovering is that there’s a whole world of lowdose (health) effects.” Many of these chemicals are disrupting the human hormone system, Collins said. These are substances that

JACK VIX SAYS: It’s hot. Be careful out there.

OTHER OPINIONS

Trickle, Trickle

State is passing expenses to counties From other Mississippi newspapers: • The Clarion-Ledger, Jackson: Can you hear the taxes trickling down? If you listen carefully, you can hear the tax burden trickling down to local taxpayers in Mississippi. County officials are fearful that state budget cuts and the decision of legislators to shortchange county governments on homestead property tax exemption reimbursements will ultimately lead to higher property taxes. State law requires the state to reimburse counties $100 for each homestead exemption application that is approved. But that’s not happening. Derrick Surrette, executive director of the Mississippi Association of Supervisors, said that without receiving their full homestead reimbursements, some counties would be facing the prospects of higher property taxes or significant cuts in services. Mississippi has fundamental tax

structure deficiencies that have been exposed by the recession. The state is now forced to deal with those structural problems both in terms of the tax structure and how Mississippi government operates. But Mississippi still faces either Draconian budget cuts, new taxes or both — likely both. It is a virtual sure thing once the 2011 election cycle is completed. In March, House Education Committee chairman Rep. Cecil Brown, D-Jackson, said he believed local tax increases were going to be the ultimate result of the recession and subsequent state revenue shortfalls and budget cuts. It appears that Brown is right. As state government cuts support for public education and other essential services because of revenue shortfalls, the pressures on local governments — county and municipal governments and local school districts — increase. The federal stimulus dollars that are

propping up so many facets of state and local governments right now will be gone over the next 16 months. State revenues aren’t projected to recover to any significant level over that period. The pressure on services provided to county taxpayers will be severe. Legislators, who are preparing to face voters in the 2011 elections, chose to make budget cuts rather than deal with the revenue side of the equation. In doing do, they pushed a lot of those problems off on county officials. Guess what? County officials must face those same voters and are no less inclined to anger voters with local tax hikes than lawmakers were to enact state tax hikes. The bottom line is that if county governments are forced to raise revenue, property taxes are about the only game in town. That reality could not come at a worse time.

Both parties are getting their just rewards The Greenwood Commonwealth: The most prominent official defeated so far is Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, who lost despite switching to the Democratic Party in an effort to keep his job. In June 1 primary voting, a first-term Alabama congressman, elected as a Democrat in 2008 but now a Republican, lost his primary to a candidate who had support from both the Alabama GOP establishment and local tea party members. The Associated Press described the Alabama defeat of Rep. Parker Griffith as “the latest manifestation of an antiestablishment, anti-Washington, antiincumbency fervor — a 2010 political phenomenon that has shaken the Dem-

ocratic establishment and the Obama White House, and also has caused angst in GOP leadership circles.” You know what? Good to hear that. Both political parties, having used the levers of Washington power to loot the federal treasury, have long needed to have their wings clipped. The trend of the past 20 years is unmistakable: Whichever party controls Congress tolerates little or no dissent in the pursuit of its goals. If the president is a member of the same party, the majority in Congress ardently supports him. If not, they ruthlessly oppose him. It hasn’t worked. The results have been catastrophic for the government, which has been unable for a decade to

come close to balancing spending with revenue. The overall anti-incumbency trend leans conservative, and some people will read that as a signal from voters that Republicans should have nothing to do with Democrats. It is possible that a good number of the incumbent legislators who are voted out of office will be replaced by people who have no interest in negotiation or compromise. If that happens, what a wasted opportunity this will be. The professional political class ought to be scared; look at what both parties have done to the government of the people.

Obama wisely chooses to cancel foreign trip The Enterprise-Journal, McComb: President Barack Obama’s second cancellation of a major foreign policy trip this year is a reminder of what really counts in politics. Short of terrorist attacks and all out war, domestic issues always take precedent. Or, as one of Obama’s predecessors is reputed to have said, “It’s the economy, stupid.” Or health care. Or crude oil invading the Gulf Coast marshes and beaches. Obama abruptly scrapped a trip to Indonesia and Australia for the second time this year, as he grappled with the

BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The president informed both countries’ leaders of the change in plans in June 3 phone calls, offering his “deep regret” and pledging to reschedule soon. Obama was to depart on a weeklong trip to the two countries, along with a stop in Guam, today. As The Associated Press noted, Obama had to weigh the risk of again putting off two allies in a strategic part of the world against the problems of crossing the globe while the devastation from the nation’s largest oil spill continued — including the expectation of a political backlash at home.

He had planned the Asia trip in March — first shortening it to be in Washington and lobby for health care legislation and then scrapping it altogether to stay for the final crucial days of debate on that top domestic priority. All of this begs the question as to what exactly could Obama do about the oil spill that isn’t already being done. But the way politics works, with elections looming, he had better be seen personally doing something or at least “feeling the pain” of those most affected.

I once figured out in a late-night porch session that my yellow dog had a vocabulary of at least 200 words and phrases.

Compassion was Mabel’s greatest skill She made friends quickly, Mabel. A woman named Cheryl came to the front porch for the first time not long ago, and Mabel cocked her pretty head with that quizzical expression she did so well, kissed the visitor on the lips and the deal was sealed. Mabel had a new friend. She wasn’t the kind of dog who sat under your hand waiting to be petted. That would have lacked dignity. Let needy dogs do that. But if she sensed you needed her — if you were depressed, or sick, or hurt, if you felt your RHETA last friend in the world gRIMSLEY had taken a Greyhound to China — Mabel was there, in your face, asking with her fathomless eyes what was wrong and how could she help. She slept in a warm and generous curl next to me every night last winter, the longest of my life. Mabel’s week was typical until its end. We made a trip to Alabama, Mabel snoring when the car rolled, hopping out when it stopped, seducing strangers along the way. Mabel loved to ride, would perform a virtuoso pout when she’d sense my green carpetbag was going somewhere without her. She gladly adapted her long legs to the back seat of the small car I recently bought. When we returned home to Mississippi, she made up for lost time by tracking a baby armadillo, trotting home proudly with the poor ugly trophy in her mouth. She had enough hound in her to follow a scent forever. And there was nothing prettier on this earth than seeing Mabel in a winter woods, her yellow perfection vivid against the bosky dark of Mississippi. It was a week of habit. She ate. She slept. We walked across the hayfield to our friend Terry’s house. We moseyed to the end of the driveway, and Mabel fetched the newspaper with her usual flourish. She ran flatout one afternoon following the call of the wild. I thought she had hurt her leg. She had trouble walking and standing. Mabel had had lots of leg issues in her eight years. She even had fishing line that replaced a ligament in one back leg, a surgery that cost two months’ pay. But it made her good as new. Nothing slowed her for long. I was wrong about the leg this time. I was wrong about a lot. Mabel’s last ride was an emergency one to Mississippi State vet school, fueled by the hope we could get her there in time to mend a failing heart. I should have spared her that ride. I sat in the back with Mabel while my friend Hines drove. Panic and confusion were in Mabel’s expressive eyes, which now asked for help. We were 10 miles from the college when she drew a last, long, tortured breath. I’ve lost dogs before. I’ve lost friends. But I never lost a better dog or a better friend than Mabel. I once figured out in a late-night porch session that my yellow dog had a vocabulary of at least 200 words and phrases. She understood you; she answered with body language, and tail and paws. But her chief way of communicating was with her eyes. They let you know things you needed to know. That she loved you. That she was loyal to you. That things would get better in the by and by. If I had looked deeply enough into those eyes last week, I would have known sooner. I wouldn’t have needed to see her stumbling across the kitchen floor, or hear her panting, to know something significant was wrong. After eight years of Mabel’s taking care of me, I failed her. Mabel is in the ground. And my life has a hole as wide as the Mississippi River and deep as this sad earth’s core. •

Document: Overhaul to force changes in work health plans WASHINGTON (AP) — Over and over in the health care debate, President Barack Obama said people who like their current coverage would be able to keep it. But an early draft of an administration regulation estimates that many employers will be forced to make changes to their health plans under the new law. In just three years, a majority of workers — 51 percent — will be in plans subject to new federal requirements, according to midrange projec-

tions in the draft. Republicans said Obama broke his promise. Employer groups were divided. It’s more evidence that the law will raise costs, said the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. But the Business Roundtable — representing CEOs of major firms — saw encouraging signs of flexibility, though it’s withholding final judgment. Some experts believe increased regulation will lead to improved benefits for consumers.

“On the face of it, having consumer protections apply to all insurance plans could be a good thing for employees,” said Alex Vachon, an independent health policy consultant. “Technically, it’s actually improved coverage.” The types of changes that employers could have to make include offering preventive care without copayments and instituting an appeals process for disputed claims that follows new federal guidelines. The law already requires all

health plans to extend coverage to young adult children until they turn 26. Such incremental changes can nudge costs up. The Obama administration said the draft regulation is an early version undergoing revision. Nonetheless, the leaked document was getting widespread interest Friday in lobbying firms that represent employers and insurance companies. “What we are getting here is a clear indication that most

plans will have to change,” said James Gelfand, health policy director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “From an employer’s point of view that’s a bad thing. These changes, whether or not they’re good for consumers, are most certainly accompanied by a cost.” Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said it showed that Obama’s assurance that Americans would be able to keep the plans they currently have was

“a myth” all along. “Since its passage, Republican arguments against the bill have been repeatedly vindicated, even as the administration’s many promises about the bill have been called into question again and again,” McConnell said An administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the final version will accommodate employers’ desire for flexibility while protecting consumers from runaway costs.

Kagan memos highlight views on abortion, religious rights WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, as a Clinton White House counsel, drafted legal language designed to narrow a proposed ban on a procedure that critics call “partialbirth” abortion. In a 1996 memo, Kagan argued it would be unconstitutional to prohibit the procedure outright — without an exception for cases where it was needed to avert “serious adverse health consequences” for the mother — and she recommended wording for such an exemption. Kagan wrote that one of the virtues of her proposal was that “it will not make the groups” — presumably abortion-rights groups — “go crazy ... because it fully protects the right of the woman to any medically necessary procedures.” The memo is part of a roughly 40,000-page trove of documents released by the William J. Clinton Presidential Library on Friday that shed more light on what kind

The documents offer glimpses of Kagan’s positions on controversial issues, such as her reservations about a federal law banning assisted suicide, and instances where she took a broad view of religious freedom. And they reveal her involvement in defending Clinton from scandals that dogged his presidency and the sexual harassment lawsuit that helped lead to his impeachment. of justice Kagan might be. The documents offer glimpses of Kagan’s positions on controversial issues, such as her reservations about a federal law banning assisted suicide, and instances where she took a broad view of religious freedom. And they reveal her involvement in defending Clinton from scandals that dogged his presidency and the sexual harassment lawsuit that helped lead to his impeachment. Most of them date from her stint as an associate White House counsel for Clinton from 1995 to 1996. The Republican-led Congress approved a ban on the

abortion procedure in late 1995, and Kagan’s memo was from early 1996, a few months before Clinton vetoed the measure. In his veto message to Congress, which the files indicate Kagan helped draft, Clinton said he was acting because there was no exception for a mother’s health. Clinton’s library is working on all 160,000 pages of documents related to Kagan’s White House tenure requested by the Senate Judiciary Committee that’s set to begin hearings on her nomination June 28. With Friday’s release, all the paper documents have been produced. Still to come are some 80,000

pages of e-mails — 11,000 pages of which were written by Kagan. Republicans said documents are emerging too slowly. “I remain deeply concerned that Ms. Kagan’s records will not be fully produced in time for the committee to conduct a proper review,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee. Based on the information senators have so far, he said, “it is clear that Ms. Kagan has demonstrated both strong liberal views and a willingness to substitute those views for sound legal judgment.” Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the panel’s chairman, called the concerns about timing “misguided and misplaced.” He said that “there is more than enough time for senators and their staff to review” the records. “The documents released today show Elena Kagan to be a brilliant lawyer, advising President Clinton on a variety of complex issues,” Leahy said.

Execs tried to avoid Motrin recall, papers indicate WASHINGTON (AP) — Johnson & Johnson executives were briefed on an outside contractor’s plan to buy up defective painkillers instead of issuing a recall, documents obtained by The Associated Press on Friday indicate. E-mails sent to J&J last spring by contractor Inmar show the company was informed that the plan to purchase thousands of packets of Motrin could “draw scrutiny,” in the words one Inmar executive. Congressional investigators have been probing J&J’s handling of problems with its Motrin tablets that emerged last year. The maker of consumer products and medicines has attracted scrutiny after a slew of product recalls, most recently involving dozens of children’s medicines. The communication between J&J and Inmar, a supplychain management company, appears to contradict testimony from J&J executive Colleen Goggins, who told lawmakers last month that J&J was not aware of the plan to use contractors posing as customers to buy the defective product. But a memo signed by J&J’s McNeil Consumer Health-

VW pulls minivans on fire worries WASHINGTON (AP) — Volkswagen AG is recalling nearly 16,000 Routan minivans to address fire concerns involving latches on the sliding doors. The German automaker says the recall affects 2009 minivans, which are jointly developed with Chrysler LLC and built at Chrysler’s Windsor, Ontario, plant. Ch r ys l e r recently announced a recall of nearly 285,000 Dodge Grand Caracare unit instructs Inmar employees to “not communicate to store personnel any information about this product. Simply visit each store, locate the product and, if any is found, purchase all of the product.” Rep. Edolphus Towns, a New York Democrat who chairs the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, called the documents “troubling,” in a statement Friday. J&J said in a statement Friday that it has turned over more than 22,000 pages of documentation to congressional

uct ... with as little disruption or consumer confusion as possible,” the company said in a statement. The problem with the Motrin pills caused them to dissolve improperly, delivering a lesspotent dose. FDA officials are considering criminal charges against the company after it was slow to fix manufacturing problems linked to three medicine recalls in the last eight months. The most recent recall involved more than 40 varieties of children’s medicine, including Tylenol, Benadryl, Motrin and other products that make up nearly 70 percent of the market for pediatric medications. J&J, which is based in New Brunswick, N.J., has long enjoyed a sterling reputation for safety, earned in the 1980s for quickly pulling bottles of Tylenol that may have been tainted with cyanide.

On the upswing

Dow posts first weekly gain in nearly a month NEW YORK (AP) — The Dow Jones industrial average has logged its first winning week in a month. The Dow rose 39 points Friday and ended the week with a gain of 2.8 percent, its best weekly advance since mid-February. The market slid in morning trading on disappointing retail sales numbers but started to pare its losses after a report found consumers are gaining confidence in the economy. The market climbed in the last hour of trading to end near the highs of the day. Treasury prices rose, pushing down interest rates, after spiking on Thursday. The Reuters/University of Michigan consumer sentiment index showed consumer confidence rose to its highest level since January 2008 and came in well ahead of forecasts. The jump in confidence was an encouraging sign, but still doesn’t signal the all-clear for the economy, said Michael Sheldon, chief market strategist at RDM Financial Group

The Dow rose 39 points Friday and ended the week with a gain of 2.8 percent, its best weekly advance since mid-February. The market slid in morning trading on disappointing retail sales numbers but started to pare its losses after a report found consumers are gaining confidence in the economy. in Westport, Conn. “We recovered some lost ground, but there is still some ways to go,” Sheldon said. That was evident in the disappointing retail sales report, which initially sent stocks lower. The government reported that retail sales fell 1.2 percent in May. It was the first drop in eight months. It was a surprise to economists who had predicted the pace of growth would slow between April and May, but still rise. Companies dependent on consumer spending fell after the report. Proctor & Gamble Co., which makes Tide detergent and Gillette razors, lost 1.5 percent. J.C.Penney Co. fell 1.1 percent, while Macy’s Inc.

shares also slipped. Technology shares got a boost after handset maker Motorola Inc. settled a patent dispute with Research In Motion Ltd. Motorola climbed 4 percent, while Research In Motion added less than 1 percent. The mixed reports come a day after stocks surged on upbeat global economic figures. The day’s swings extended the volatility that has been seen in recent weeks. The Dow climbed 279 points Thursday on reports from China, Japan and Australia that indicated the global economy continues to improve. Despite the gains Friday, analysts said traders aren’t on edge. “The market is ner-

vous,” said Joe Heider, principal at Rehmann Financial in Cleveland. “It’s reacting on a day-to-day basis.” Heider said the economy is not growing fast enough to overcome the concerns about Europe’s debt crisis and other issues such as the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. That has led to fluctuations in the market, often within the same day. As it has done for most of the week, the market shifted direction in the final hour of trading Friday. The Dow rose 38.54, or 0.4 percent, to 10,211.07. It had fallen nearly 90 points in morning trading. The Dow’s climb of 279 points, or 2.8 percent, during the week was its best since the week ended Feb. 19. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 4.76, or 0.4 percent, to 1,091.60, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq composite index rose 24.89, or 1.1 percent, to 2,243.60. For the week, the S&P 500 index rose 2.5 percent and the Nasdaq rose 1.1 percent.

Congressman asks Choctaws to drop casino plans PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Mississippi congressman has asked the Band of Choctaw Indians to drop plans for a casino in Jones County. The site is near Sandersville, north of Laurel, and on

tribal land in the Bogue Homa community. Republican Rep. Gregg Harper, in a letter to the tribe, said while the project is probably legal under federal gaming laws, there is no local support

for it, outside the tribe. Harper’s 3rd District includes a portion of Jones County, but not the area where the casino would be located. An 8-7 vote approving the project, he said, by the Tribal

Council indicated there is some opposition within the tribe to it. The casino would employ about 250 people.

California officer killed during 100-mph pursuit REDLANDS, Calif. — A California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer chasing four suspects in San Bernardino County smashed into a tractor-trailer and was killed Friday in a pursuit authorities said reached 100 mph. The accident happened after seven-year veteran Tom Coleman tried to pull over a car suspected of vehicle code violations, but the driver refused to stop, CHP spokesman Daniel Hesser said. Coleman gave chase but crashed a few minutes later, his motorcycle bursting into flames as he landed several yards away. He was pronounced dead at the Redlands intersection around 6:30 a.m., Hesser said. The suspects’ car crashed into a curb several blocks away. The four occupants were captured and arrested on undisclosed charges, Hesser said. Coleman, whose age was not released, was married with two children. Coleman is the second CHP motorcycle officer involved in a serious crash this week. Phillip Ortiz, a 27-year veteran, remained in critical condition Friday after being hit by a motorist Wednesday on a freeway shoulder in Los Angeles. The CHP said his condition was not expected to improve anytime soon.

CNN co-founder, CBS exec dies NEW YORK — Robert J. Wussler, a CNN co-founder who became the youngest president of the CBS television network when he took over at age 36, has died. He was 73. Spokesman Arthur Sando says Wussler died June 5 at his home in Westport, Conn., after a long illness.

Wussler started his 21-year career at CBS working in the mailroom. He eventually became executive producer of CBS News, where he oversaw special projects including man’s landing on the moon. In 1978, Wussler formed his own production company called Pyramid Enterprises. It created syndicated programming for the international marketplace, specializing in Japan, France and the former Soviet Union. Wussler won seven Emmy awards.

Gov. Jan Brewer and Attorney General Terry Goddard asked a judge on Friday to dismiss a lawsuit that seeks to overturn the state’s new immigration law. Lawyers for both officials say the lawsuit by Washington-based researcher Roberto Frisancho should be thrown out because his claim is based on his speculation that, as a U.S.-born Hispanic, he will be asked for immigration papers as a result of the law. The law requires police, while enforcing other laws, to question a person’s immigration status if officers have a reasonable suspicion that the person is in the country illegally. Brewer and Goddard’s lawyers say the lawsuit doesn’t take into account that the Legislature amended the law to strengthen restrictions against using race as the basis for questioning by police. Frisancho couldn’t be reached for comment late Friday afternoon because he doesn’t have a listed phone number. In all, five legal challenges have been filed to the law since Brewer approved it in April. She was sued in four of the five cases and was required to file a response to two of the lawsuits on Friday. Brewer’s response to one of the lawsuits wasn’t publicly released late Friday afternoon.

19 killed as gunmen storm rehab center CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico — At least 30 gunmen burst into a drug rehabilitation center in a Mexican border state capital and opened fire, killing 19 men and wounding four people, police said. Gunmen also killed 20 people in another drug-plagued northern city. The killings marked one of the bloodiest weeks ever in Mexico and came just weeks after authorities discovered 55 bodies in an abandoned silver mine, presumably victims of the country’s drug violence. The bullet-riddled bodies of 18 men and two women were found Friday in five different parts of Ciudad Madero, a city in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas, where violence has surged this year amid a turf battle between the Gulf cartel and its former ally, the Zetas gang of hit men. Police had no information on suspects. It was the deadliest day in Tamaulipas drug violence since 18 gunmen died in clashes with soldiers in April.

Suicide bomb kills nine near capital ALGIERS, Algeria — A suicide bomber rammed a truck into the barracks of an elite police unit Friday in a village east of the capital, Algiers. At least nine people died, including four police officers and one Chinese worker. The bombing occurred in the town of Timizar in the Kabylia region about 60 miles from the capital along Algeria’s Mediterranean coast, said a local police officer, speaking on condition of anonymity according to his regulations. The suicide bomber died when he plowed the truck packed with explosives into the barracks. Police shot and killed two suspected terrorists who were following the truck in another vehicle. A civilian was killed as well, the local officer said.

Van der Sloot heckled as he’s taken to jail Murder suspect in segregated cell LIMA, Peru (AP) — Angry Peruvian onlookers shouted “Disgrace!” and “Murderer” at Jo r a n va n der Sloot on Friday after a judge ordered him jailed on first-degree Natalee murder and Holloway robbery charges in the violent killing of a 21-year-old Lima woman. Prosecutors said the Dutchman, who was taken to a segregated block of an eastern Lima prison, acted with “ferocity and Stephany great cruelty” Flores in killing business student Stephany Flores in his hotel room after they met playing poker. Also, Van der Sloot remains the lone suspect in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway on the Caribbean resort island of Aruba, and Peru’s criminal police chief says the defendant told interrogators he knows where her body is. Aruba’s attorney general, Taco Stein, told The Associated Press on Friday he is

said Gen. Cesar Guardia, chief of the criminal police. The 6-foot-3 Van der Sloot took about $300 in Peruvian currency, two credit cards and Flores’ national ID card, Guardia said. He said the suspect abandoned her car in a lower-class Lima neighborhood before fleeing south to Chile by bus. If convicted on the murder and robbery charges, Van der Sloot would be sentenced to between 15 and 35 years in prison, court spokesman Luis Gallardo told the AP. “The aggravating factors are having acted with ferocity

and great cruelty,” said a news release issued by the court that announced the charges. At Castro Castro prison, Van der Sloot was fed the Peruvian chicken dish “seco de pollo,” prisons director Ruben Rodriguez said. The Dutchman will have his own cell in a small block near the director’s office. The only other two prisoners on the block are a reputed Colombian hit man charged with strangling a Peruvian socialite and a provincial mayor charged with laundering drug money. It was not known when the trial might begin. A judge must first be assigned. Flores was killed three days after meeting Van der Sloot, police say, and five years to the day after Holloway disappeared. Guardia said “a wealth of evidence” against the Dutchman includes closed-circuit video tracking him leaving the casino with Flores, entering his room with the woman and then leaving alone. The police chief told the AP on Thursday night that when Van der Sloot confessed to killing Flores investigators asked him about the Holloway case. “He let slip that he knew the place where this person was buried,” Guardia said. The general said the Dutchman told investigators “he would only testify (on the matter) before Aruba authorities.”

Joran Van der Sloot, center, is escorted by police officers Friday in Lima, Peru. skeptical Van der Sloot was telling the truth about Holloway’s body. He said Aruban officials will decide whether to sent investigators to Peru to question him once they learn exactly what he is offering. Lima Superior Court Judge Juan Buendia issued a detention order before dawn for Van der Sloot on the murder charge. He was first taken with other prisoners in an armored truck to Lima’s judicial palace, then alone to the maximum-security Castro Castro prison. Police manhandled Van der Sloot as they ushered him

to the judicial palace, a scarf around his neck and his hands cuffed behind him. The more virulent catcalls and bile — the sensational case has dominated Peru’s news for a week — came from onlookers as he was taken from the prosecutor’s office where he had been held since Thursday. One onlooker threw spoiled lettuce. Police say Van der Sloot brutally murdered Flores three days after meeting her at a casino. He broke her nose, strangled her, threw her to the floor then emptied her wallet and drove away in her SUV,

14 die in violence across Afghanistan KABUL, Afghanistan — Three international service members and at least 11 civilians died in violence across southern Afghanistan on Friday, including one attack in which a suicide bomber wearing a burqa blew himself up in a bazaar. Violence has spiked recently in Afghanistan’s volatile south as Taliban insurgents step up attacks ahead of a planned major operation by NATO forces to secure the main city of Kandahar, the birthplace of the Taliban. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan, said in Brussels on Friday that insurgents have killed 59 Afghans during the past seven days, 54 of them in Kandahar. He told NATO ministers that insurgents also wounded 116, including 94 in Kandahar.

Chavez takes aim at smoking, alcohol CARACAS, Venezuela — President Hugo Chavez says he wants Venezuelans to stop drinking so much alcohol, and he has ordered the military to crack down on businesses selling beer on the streets or after legal hours. Chavez said his government is considering raising taxes on alcohol and cigarettes. Venezuelans’ taste for beer and Scotch whisky is an irritation to the leftist president, and he raised liquor and cigarette taxes three years ago while calling for similar measures — to little effect. “Armed forces: Any truck that goes around selling beer in the barrios, they must be caught,” Chavez said.

Rewards good way to motivate children Q: You have addressed the use of rewards in influencing kids. Isn’t that manipulation? A: No more than a factory supervisor manipulates his employees by docking their pay if they arrive late. No more than a policeman manipulates a speeding driver by giving him a traffic ticket. The word manipulation implies a sinister or selfish motive of the one in charge. I don’t agree. Q: When would you not recommend the use of rewards? A: Rewards should never be used as a payoff FOCUS ON for not THE FAMILY disobeying. That becomes a bribe — a substitute for authority. For example, Mom is having trouble controlling her 3-year-old in a supermarket. In exasperation, Mom offers Pam a sucker if she’ll respond quickly. Rather than rewarding obedience, Mom has actually reinforced defiance. Another misuse of rewards is to pay a child for doing routine jobs that are his responsibility. But when he is asked to spend half his Saturday cleaning the garage, it’s OK to make it worth his time. Q: I worry about putting undue emphasis on materialism. Do rewards have to be money or toys? A: Certainly not. A word of praise is a great enticement to some children. An interesting snack can also get their attention. When my daughter was 3, I began to teach her some pre-reading skills. By planning the training sessions to occur after dinner each evening, bits of chocolate candy provided the chief source of motivation. (I was less concerned about the effects of excess sugar consumption in those days.) One afternoon, I was sitting on the floor drilling her on several new letters when a tremendous crash shook the neighborhood. The whole family rushed outside to see what had happened. A teenager had overturned his car. It was not until the excitement passed that we realized our daughter had not followed us out of the house. I returned to the den where I found her elbow-deep in the candy I had left behind. She must have put a halfpound of chocolate in her mouth. When she saw me coming, she jammed another handful into her chipmunk cheeks. From this experience, I learned one of the limitations of using material, or at least edible, rewards. Anything the child wants can be used as a reinforcer, from praise to pizza to playtime. •

The Rev. Jerry Campbell, from left, Rabbi Mel Gottlieb and Imam Jihad Turk listen during a press conference announcing the launch of the Claremont School of Theology’s University Project.

Theology school melds studies of different faiths By The Associated Press CLAREMONT, Calif. — A rabbi, a minister and an imam walk into a classroom, and it’s no joke. The venerable Claremont School of Theology has taught Methodist ministers and theologians for more than a century, but in the fall they’ll try an unorthodox approach: cross-training the nation’s future Muslim, Christian and Jewish religious leaders in classrooms scattered around Southern California as they work toward their respective degrees. The experimental approach launched Wednesday is intended to create U.S. religious leaders who not only preach tolerance in an era of religious strife, but who have lived it themselves by rubbing shoulders with those in other Abrahamic faiths. The idea has already met resistance from more conservative elements in some religious communities; its architects say that only underscores the need for such an approach. “Christians attend school with Christians, Jewish with Jewish and Muslims with

‘It could be a breeding ground for conflict, but it should be a place where students can develop skills for a multifaith environment and what better place to do it than with their education? When they’re in practice, they have a toolbox ready to respond to the conflicts that come up. To me, that’s at the core of why it’s unique and exciting.’ Najeeba Syeed-Miller Muslim professor

Muslim” said the Rev. Jerry Campbell, president of the Claremont School of Theology. “Educating people in a segregated environment is not a way to teach them to be peacemakers. It only steeps them in their own religion and with their own people.” Conceived in 2006, the University Project will allow seminary students at Claremont to cross-enroll in programs that train future Muslim and Jewish religious leaders while working toward their own degrees in Christian theology. Claremont already has chaplaincy programs for Muslims and Jews who ultimately work as counselors in institutional settings, but they don’t have rabbinical and imam certi-

fication programs. Course topics will include inter-religious conflict resolution, Scripture and ethics. The exchange will also work in the other direction. Starting this fall, rabbinical students enrolled at the Academy of Jewish Religion’s California chapter will be able to study at Claremont. And by next year, the project will include an Islamic program that aims to create a standard for training American imams by working with the LA-based Islamic Center of Southern California. Classes at the Islamic institute will be taught by Claremont professors and will also be open to seminarians and rabbinical students. The collaborative effort

among the seminary, Jewish academy and Islamic center is believed to be the first to integrate the three studies. Other Christian institutions, such as Connecticut’s Hartford Seminary, offer an imam training program but don’t incorporate rabbinical students. “It is our responsibility as religious leaders to show that religion can be a powerful force for unity and love in the world, instead of it being captured by a spirit of divisiveness, based on fear of the other and ignorance of the other,” said Rabbi Mel Gottlieb, president and dean of the Academy of Jewish Religion’s California chapter. Claremont has already used an initial $10 million gift

to hire the first Muslim and second Jewish faculty members. If the project takes off, its architects hope to add Hinduism and Buddhism and house the project under one roof. “It could be a breeding ground for conflict, but it should be a place where students can develop skills for a multifaith environment and what better place to do it than with their education?” said Najeeba Syeed-Miller, the Muslim professor. “When they’re in practice, they have a toolbox ready to respond to the conflicts that come up. To me, that’s at the core of why it’s unique and exciting.” The project has yet to be approved by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, an accreditation institution. The Islamic school will be incubated by the Christian seminary, piggybacking on Claremont’s accreditation. Organizers hope to raise $40 million for its development from both U.S. and Middle Eastern donors, possibly through fundraising trips to Islamic nations. Muslim groups here have found little opposition to the interfaith initiative.

Convert Gingrich touts Pope John Paul II film By The Associated Press WARSAW, Poland — Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich — a recent convert to Catholicism — is promoting a documentary he co-produced on Pope John Paul II’s role in defeating communism. Gingrich, a Republican, is preaching to the converted: the Polish-born pope is revered, and Poles credit him with inspiring the struggle that eventually helped bring down the Soviet-backed com-

munists in eastern Europe. Gingrich said Wednesday during a promotion event in Poland that his film, “Nine Days that Changed the World,” is still needed to remind young Poles, secular historians and people worldwide of John Paul’s anti-totalitarian convictions. The film, which will be screened at American universities this fall, is also being translated into Chinese and Spanish in hopes it will inspire people in Cuba and elsewhere, Gingrich said.

“We believe the pope’s message of freedom through faith and his principle that no government can get between you and God is a principle that is relevant in every country, for every person around the world,” Gingrich said at a news conference in Warsaw attended by the film’s director and the other producers, among them his wife, Callista Gingrich. The film tracks a visit John Paul made to Poland in 1979 — his first back to his homeland after being elected pon-

tiff — and the effect it had on anti-communist opposition. In just over a year, Lech Walesa’s Solidarity freedom movement was born. Walesa and other activists have said the massive crowds that came out during the nine-day visit to see the pope encouraged opposition activists by giving them a sense of the large-scale opposition to the communist regime. John Paul’s sermons, though subtle, also challenged the communists’ authority and called for freedom.

Newt Gingrich promotes his Pope John Paul II film this past week in Warsaw, Poland.

devotion “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.” Romans 4:8 • God has imputed his righteousness to every believer. That means that instead of your sin being on your account, it is his righteousness instead. Not only has he forgiven us. Not only has he covered our sins. But, he gives us his righteousness. • I fail, but God will not impute that to me. If God were to impute sin to me, then when I fail I would be lost again. How much sin would it take to make me lost? Just one half of one sin. • You see, I am not going to heaven because I am perfect. I am not perfect. I am not perfect. You are not perfect. No one is perfect. But, we have received Christ as our righteousness. And in his eyes, we are perfect.

Christina Aguilera

For the love of day lilies

Aguilera not her usual chart-topper self — yet By Ryan Pearson AP entertainment writer LOS ANGELES — Over a synth-heavy dance track, Christina Aguilera sings on her new album: “Every day I see myself I love me even more. ... Let us not forget who owns the throne.” Then, her son Max’s voice pipes up: “You do, Mommy.” Does she? Aguilera is returning to music after four years away from stadium tours and Billboard charts: The multiplatinum Grammy-winner took some time to just “be married,” as she says, and spent the last two years raising her son with husband Jordan Bratman. And while she’s confident she’ll regain her old spot at the top of the pop world, the comeback so far hasn’t gone exactly according to plan. First single “Not Myself Tonight” peaked at 23 on the Hot 100 and is now at 73. Its black leatherand-lace, S&M themedvideo was picked apart as hewing too close to clips from current pop queen Lady Gaga. A summer tour was announced but canceled within weeks. In an interview, the 29-year-old singer makes no apologies. Aguilera says she nixed the tour to gain more time to prepare and gauge which songs on “Bionic” fans will want to hear live. “I put on a big show. I create sets, costumes. There’s major choreography and dance numbers. All of that goes along with a huge production. And I started to feel this is not the right time,” she said. “It’ll be a much better and bigger show when I have time to properly plan.” She notes that she’s sported big, bold hairstyles, fashion and makeup since 2001’s “Lady Marmalade” and says this of the 24-yearold Gaga: “I’ve always done what I’ve done as far as push boundaries and take risks. ... I think now more than ever, it’s being accepted to do those kinds of things. So more power to her. And she’s obviously a hard-working, focused young woman. And I have nothing but respect for that work ethic.” “I’m no stranger to comparisons in this business and being pit(ted) up against other female artists unfairly,” Aguilera adds. She says the two haven’t met, “but I’m sure that we would get along.” Aguilera says she got along grandly with the likes of Cher and Stanley See Aguilera, Page C3.

Jenilyn Hall looks at day lilies in her garden.

Sisters forever linked by summer flowers Day lilies are colorful summer perennials that look great in almost any landscape. Because they are relatively easy to grow with few insect or disease problems, most of us have a few clumps scattered around our gardens. That standard is not quite enough for Jenilyn Hall, who two years ago with the help of daughter and son-in-law Diane and Leroy Williams, planted 100-plus clumps in a large bed along the drive leading up to their home on Gibson Road. The day lilies originally belonged to Hall’s 86-yearold sister, Camille, who has been collecting and growing hybrid day lillies “just about forever” at her home in Magnolia, Hall said. Her sister still has quite a few at her home, but is not quite as able to tend to the day lilies now as she was a few years ago. Hall, who has gardened most of her life and loves all kinds of flowers, hated to see many of her sister’s prized day lillies

Several cultivars began blooming a couple of weeks ago, and now the bed is a sea of color in shades of yellow, orange, red and lavender. Each bloom lasts a day, but these healthy plants have strong scapes full of buds that should provide lots of blooms for several weeks. Bright blue agapanthus lilies were planted on the backside of the bed and will continue to offer color after the day lilies start to slow down. Nearby are more massed beds filled with amaryllis, Asiatic lilies and irises that provided colorful blooms earlier in the season. Hall’s day lillies are planted in full sun with afternoon shade. Day lilies can tolerate partial

Many of the reds and purple cultivars benefit from some partial shade during the hottest hours of the day. Those colors absorb heat more easily and do not hold their color as well as the yellows and other pastel shades. Day lilies are not picky about soil, but the dirt should be well tilled with a generous amount of compost or organic material added before any planting occurs. Hall

decided to add a good commercial planting soil to the dirt they tilled before planting. Good drainage is important with day lilies, as it is with most other perennials. Day lilies do best when fertilized, though many may flower for years without fertilization. The American Hemerocallis (day lily) Society recommends an application of a complete fertilizer (8-8-8 or 13-13-13) in spring, usually early March, and again in early fall. Day

lilies rest immediately after blooming but have a new surge of growth in the fall as the plants start preparing for the next year’s blooms and need nutrients then. Day lilies love water, said Earl Watts, one of the leading hybridizers in the state. In fact, he said, they like water better than fertilizer but he grows mostly showquality blooms and has to make sure they have as much fertilizer and water as is necessary for optimum performance. Water is definitely critical until the plants are well established in the first year. After that, the amount of water you provide may depend on how much you want to spend, Hall said. On Gibson Road, Preen was mixed into the soil to deter weeds and Hall and the Williamses mulched the day lilies and other perennial beds with a wood product that closely resembles pinestraw for additional weed control and to maintain moisture See Day lilies, Page C3.

Poll finds money is a huge consideration in pet care LOS ANGELES (AP) — When a vet told Nancy Gates that her dog, Arabella, had heart problems, needed surgery and it would cost $500, she had no choice but to put her pet down. “It was pretty straightforward because I had four young children to feed. The vet said surgery was my only option. I did not want my dog to suffer,” she said. Gates, 41, of Cotati, about 50 miles north of San Francisco, made that decision 11 years ago but said nothing has changed. She still couldn’t afford high-priced health care for her current pets, an 11-year-old cat, Cocoa, and a 9-year-old golden retriever Sadie. And Gates isn’t alone. Money is a consideration for the majority of people when dealing with the cost of health care for animals, according to an Associated Press-Petside.com poll conducted by GfK Roper Public Affairs & Media. While most pet owners, 62 percent, would likely get vet care if the bill was $500, the percentage drops below half when the cost hits $1,000. The number drops to 35 percent if the cost is $2,000 and to 22 percent if it reaches $5,000.

Dr. Jane Shaw with her dog, Cliff Only at the $500 level are dog owners, 74 percent, more likely than cat owners, 46 percent, to say they would likely seek treatment. In the higher price ranges, the two are about equally likely to seek vet care.

“Grief gets complicated when we can’t do everything we would have liked to do for our animal,” said veterinarian Jane Shaw, director of the Argus Institute in the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colo. That’s especially true in hard economic times, when spending money you don’t have on an animal can have a lasting impact on children, the mortgage, grocery bills, heating bills. “Euthanasia is always sad but when finances have to be considered, when you feel there is a possibility you didn’t or couldn’t do the right thing, you feel guilty,” Shaw said. “We are at a point where we are talking about basic life needs or survival needs.” Terry Cornwell, 55, of Newport, Ore., has had to put down a couple of pets, but none was harder than a dog that was diagnosed with cancer. “My income decides a lot of my expenses,” she said. So far, her current year-old cocker mix, Buddy, and her 8-year-old cat, Boo Kitty, have had few health problems. Cornwell would do everything she could, but if a vet told her surgery was her only option and she had to have

Continued from Page C1. in the soil. The AHS website recommends planting day lilies in the far South in early spring or very late fall because high temperatures and humidity during July, August and September increase the probability the plants will rot. AHS also mentions that day lillies do not do as well when planted near broadleaf trees such as maples, poplars or beeches. Their shallow root systems are prone to rob the soil of moisture and nutrients. Day lilies do perform well under the dappled shade of pine trees where there is no competition with the pine’s deep root system.

the money up front, “I would be done. There would be nothing I could do about it.” Cornwell does worry, though. So do one in five pet owners who said they fret a lot about being unable to afford seeing a vet. Dog owners are more likely to worry than cat owners, and women and low-income people are among the biggest worriers. “If they start getting into expensive vet bills, there’s nothing I can do. I have no options. If you are talking about something like serious cancer, you’re putting the animal through a whole lot of stuff that’s iffy anyhow and it’s not fair to them,” she said. About one in four people, or 27 percent, said pet insurance is a good way to save money on vet bills, though that’s five times the number who actually carry insurance on their pets. Diego Negrete, 26, of Austin, Texas, has insurance on his 4-year-old fox terrier, Roxy, and his 2-year-old cat, Charley, but he’s in the minority. Ninety-five percent of those polled said they didn’t have insurance. “It’s a nice cushion to have,” he said of the policy that covers all yearly shots and checkups for about half what they would normally cost.

Hall admits that her family’s daylily project has taken considerable time, effort and money but they have no regrets. It was a mission of love to help save part of a treasure that her sister worked years to acquire and each year their colorful blooms will remind them of the importance of family and a shared interest in this summertime favorite.

Aguilera Continued from Page C1. Tucci last year on the set of her first movie, “Burlesque.” Set for Thanksgiving release, it follows a smalltown girl who joins a Hollywood burlesque club, with a focus on sexuality that Aguilera says was right up her alley. But the shoot knocked her out of her comfort zone. “Being the star of the film, it was a lot of hours for me. A very demanding schedule and a completely different animal as far as a creative world,” she said. “All of a sudden you’re thrown into expressing someone else’s vision and someone else as a character, instead of me being so used to releasing myself and my words and my lyrics and my sound and my ideas onto paper and onto audio.” Among those helping release ideas on “Bionic”: Australian singer-songwriter Sia and dance-friendly artists like Ladytron, Santigold and M.I.A. The album is more diverse than 2006’s soulful double disc, “Back to Basics.” It veers between the playful, bass-filled tease “Woohoo” featuring Nicki Minaj and the stripped-down ballad “You Lost Me,” which she performed on the “American Idol” finale. Aguilera says the electro sound that dominates the album was inspired by “play” with her son and a desire to go beyond her reputation as a once-in-a-generation singing voice. “It’s no question at this point. It’s like yawn, yawn, boring, boring,” she says, pantomiming a widemouthed, sleepy yawn. “OK, I can sit down and sing a ballad. But let’s have some fun thrown into the mix. ... There’s a side of me that wants to get up with all my

dancers — which have now become like family to me after all these years — and put on a song and dance to it and sing to it but not have to go to these crazy insane vocal places. And you don’t have to try so hard on every song to be vocally acrobatic or whatever you want to call it.” But by moving into territory already crowded with the likes of Ke$ha, Katy Perry and, yes, Gaga, Aguilera risks losing her edge, her niche. “To me, what Christina Aguilera has that most other people don’t have is an unmistakable voice,” says producer Jonathan “JR” Rotem, who has worked with Rihanna and Britney Spears, but not Spears’ fellow former “Mickey Mouse Club” member Aguilera. She’s certainly faced down critics before. The sexually-charged video for 2002’s “Dirrty” was initially derided as trampy, but aided the former teen princess’ move into grownup themes and images. (It’s the same road taken recently by Miley Cyrus with “Can’t Be Tamed” as she departs Disney and “Hannah Montana.”) “I don’t do anything that I’m going to regret, basically,” Aguilera said. “Would I do certain things again? No. But there was a time and a place for it when I did it. So that’s always how I go in looking at things. I can never look back. I won’t ever look back. And I won’t ever take anything too close to heart. There are certain things that can be said that can be hurtful and mean-spirited, but at this point in my life ... I have a decade under my belt that I’m very proud of.”

Graduation…is it a beginning, ending, or a stop along the way? Graduation is a beginning of life as a young adult, of new friendships, of higher education or a fulfilling occupation. Graduation may also bring endings…to familiar surroundings and comfortable routines, to old friendships; a setting aside of childlike fears and second hand ideas. Perhaps, graduation is a significant stop along the way, a preparatory pause, a fork in the road, a step on life’s ladder. Indeed, the word itself means a gradual transition …a time to remember the past, to ponder the present, and to dream of the future. Whatever graduation means to you, feel proud of your accomplishments, and praise God for providing you with strength and guidance.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”

‘Breaking Dawn’ to be made into 2 films

“Twilight” fans will have twice as much to sink their teeth into for the saga’s final chapter, with “Breaking Dawn” to be released as two movies. Summit Entertainment, which is releasing the wildly popular vampire franchise based on Stephenie Meyer’s books, said part one would come out Nov. 18, 2011. The script is being written now, with stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner returning. Production is set to begin this fall. Bill Condon, who won an Oscar for the screenplay of his 1999 film “Gods and Monsters,” will direct both movies. Condon also directed “Dreamgirls” and “Kinsey” and produced the 2009 Academy Awards ceremony with Hugh Jackman as host. The third film in the franchise, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” comes out June 30.

Buffalo head falls, traps snoozing man Most people would only worry about being crushed by a buffalo out in the wild. It turns out the animals can be dangerous when they’re mounted on walls, too. Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies said a man in the Florida Keys had to call 911 when a stuffed water buffalo’s head mounted on a wall fell on him and pinned him as he slept in a reclining chair. The sheriff’s office said the call came in early Friday from the man, who could only yell his address and tell operators he had been trapped.

Zac Brown Band scores with sizzling show By Chris Talbott AP entertainment writer NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Reba McEntire had never seen anything like it in a career that’s spanned nearly three decades. When country music’s entire cast of luminaries leapt to their feet in the middle of the Zac Brown Band’s cover of “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” during last year’s Country Music Association Awards, it was a defining moment for a band that has earned its fame one fan at a time out on the road. “I was so thrilled with that performance,” McEntire said. “I thought it was very gutsy of them, too, not to do their single, but to do a live performance. It was a showstopper. They do go against the grain a lot. They’re kind of renegade in a way, but they back it up.” The Zac Brown Band is riding some serious momentum right now with an indemand live show, three No. 1 singles, a recent Grammy win and two albums in Billboard’s country top 10. Their mostrecent album, “The Foundation,” continues its slow burn at No. 3 with 2 million copies sold and the new two CD, one DVD live set, “Pass The Jar: Live” is No. 9 on the charts. The six-piece will enjoy the highest visibility it has seen this summer, starting with two prime festival performances this weekend. The band gets 30 minutes today on the CMA Music Festival’s biggest stage and a prime spot Sunday at Bonnaroo, playing right before

‘I was so thrilled with that performance. I thought it was very gutsy of them, too, not to do their single, but to do a live performance. It was a showstopper. They do go against the grain a lot. They’re kind of renegade in a way, but they back it up.’ Reba McEntire country singer

The Dave Matthews Band. They will play for more than 70,000 fans down on the farm in Manchester. “The amount of people and everything there’s going to be unreal,” Coy Bowles said. “It’s going to be one of the biggest shows we’ve ever done.” “We’re going to try to whip it with a belt,” Brown said. Zac and the boys better get used to the big crowds. They’ll join Matthews on his stadium tour later this summer. By September hundreds of thousands of listeners will have heard the Zac Brown Band for the first time, and if past practice is any indication, they’ll come away with even more fans. Rory Feek of the duo Joey + Rory says that’s because “they don’t look, sound or work like any other band out there.” “Zac Brown Band is taking their own path and they have a unique way of breaking out of the normal boundaries — mostly I think, because they don’t know that there are any,” Feek wrote in an e-mail. That’s the way the band

approaches its live show. They don’t really care what everyone else is doing and in a way, they look at it as a competition. “I want to give more to the fans than what everybody else does,” Brown said. “I want to give them good food. We want to give them a four-hour show. We want to super serve the fans. We want to be known for that.” Brown said the show’s content continues to get stronger. Besides popular songs from their breakthrough album, they’re debuting songs off a new album that should come out this fall. Then there’s their nod to Charlie Daniels. More than 17 million viewers got to see them bring down the house during the CMA Awards last November with the scorching “Devil” cover. Fiddler Jimmy De Martini says the reaction was a tribute to Daniels, but the band’s crossover version is white-hot and provoked a visceral reaction from country stars like Kris Kristofferson, Reba and

scores of others. “It was surreal-looking out there and seeing Kristofferson and seeing a lot of our heroes out there standing up and clapping,” Brown said. “I saw Keith Urban getting down and laughing. It was crazy. If you come see our show, that’s what we do.” Brown says “Pass The Jar,” a live concert recording that included guests Kid Rock, Shawn Mullins, Joey + Rory and Little Big Town at the Fox Theatre in the band’s hometown of Atlanta, is a reasonable facsimile of the live show. But there’s nothing like being there in front of the stage shoulder to shoulder with thousands of fans. Bowles says the band — which also includes John Driskell Hopkins, Clay Cook and Chris Fryar — watches video of performances to tweak the show and the technology that enhances it. The group takes a blue-collar approach, Brown said, and feeds off the energy of the crowd. They always know in minutes if the show’s going to go to another level. “You feed off the crowd,” he said. “Whatever they give you, as much as they’ll give you, it comes back to us and it makes this big turbine of energy in the room. We’ll know stepping out how much they want to give us. It gives us that extra. Literally when we get done playing we’re exhausted. We’re covered in sweat and we’re soaked and we feel like we’ve given them their money’s worth.”

‘Fabulous Beekman Boys’: Farm life for city guys By Frazier Moore AP television writer NEW YORK — At first glance, “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” would seem to feature the least likely agrarians since Oliver and Lisa took up farming on “Green Acres.” And these “boys” aren’t sitcom characters. They’re real-life transplanted Manhattan urbanites who, somewhat on a whim, bought a twocentury-old mansion named Beekman Manor plus the farm that went with it, then began a crash course in country living. The result is on display in a docu-reality series premiering Wednesday at 8 p.m. on Planet Green. It’s by turns funny, instructive, even inspirational (these guys just don’t quit!). And befitting its costars, it’s also fabulous. The self-proclaimed Beekman Boys consist of Dr. Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, partners for a decade who boast diverse and downright colorful backgrounds. Brent has been an assistant clinical professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and was vice president of healthy living at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. Josh is a professional drag queen turned advertising exec, and a successful author

The associated press

Brent Ridge, left, and Josh Kilmer-Purcell from “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” whose just-published third book, “The Bucolic Plague,” serves as an unintended prequel to their TV series by recounting how he and Brent took the plunge into their rural lifestyle. The charm of “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” comes in part from witnessing their steep learning curve as they confront a slew of farm chores wildly alien to their past experience. Meanwhile, they strike a colorful contrast (and the occasional sparks) in how they navigate their new challenges. For example, Brent, who tends the farm full time, wants it tidier than some people keep

their studio apartment. (In his view, even a pig sty shouldn’t be a pig sty.) Josh is more laid-back, especially since he arrives at the farm each Friday after toiling in Manhattan at his ad agency job to guarantee them a regular paycheck. “It’s tough,” he sighs after one outburst of his partner’s lofty demands. “I have a dream, and then you take it and you turn it into this whole production.” Serving as their onsite authority is “Farmer John” Hall, a lifelong resident of their tiny village of Sharon Springs, N.Y., whose reigning passion is his herd of goats.

Beside growing provisions for their own use, the Beekman Boys have created an organic lifestyle brand, Beekman 1802, whose product line includes goat-milk soap and a goat-milk cheese covered with hardwood ash. For this couple, the adventure began in 2007 when they bought the farm. But the seed was planted for the TV series a year ago when Josh met Laura Michalchyshyn, boss of Planet Green (as well as Discovery Health and FitTV). “He started talking about the farm,” Michalchyshyn recalled recently. “He said, ‘We may fail, we may succeed, but we really want to give this a try.”’ Intrigued, she arranged to meet Brent a week later. “I said, ‘You guys ever thought of doing a TV show?’ And they looked at me and said, ‘No one has asked us.”’ She asked. “It was one of those rare moments when the head of a network just says, ‘OK, let’s give this a shot.”’ Shooting started last July.

Teenager feels unsettled by her boyfriend’s wandering eye DEAR ABBY ABIGAIL

VAN BUREN

mond at a very young age, which has prevented both of you from having the normal kinds of dating experiences that are supposed to happen in high school. If he is restless, it would be better for both of you to date others, at least for a while. If you are meant to be together, your relationship will stand the test of exposure to others. Dear Abby: My husband, “Russ,” and I have been married 13 years. During that time he has lost more than 15 jobs

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Gemini (May 21-June 20) — It’s likely that you will be particularly strong in areas where financial problem-solving is a must. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — You have a natural gift for being able to quickly remedy sticky situations that arise out of nowhere. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Pay close attention to those naturalborn insights you often get, especially those that are persistent. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Strive to maintain high standards within your full range of involvements, even with the little things that no one tends to notice. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Without even trying, you’ll have an aura of authority that will automatically make others follow your lead. Don’t be surprised that when you look back, a crowd will be following you. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Being nonjudgmental is what will make your involvements with others so successful. Neither their shortcomings nor mistakes will disturb you, nor will you be awed by their great attributes. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Changes brought about by outside factors won’t necessarily be disturbing to you or appear to be too exciting. However, by day’s end you’re likely to feel like you’ve had quite a time. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Diplomacy and tact are two of the greatest tools you can use to ward off or minimize any complications that might otherwise develop. Use them freely. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Simply by settling down to business when called for, and not letting frivolous involvements sidetrack you from what needs doing, you will have a very productive day. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — The quality of your companionship will be of far greater significance to you than being surrounded by a quantity of friends. Aries (March 21-April 19) — You should find that you are both a good starter and a good finisher, so take on those jobs that once begun must be completed the same day. You won’t leave anything hanging. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Keep an open mind when discussing an arrangement in which you’re involved. If changes need to be made, don’t hesitate to explore all avenues as to the best way to go about doing so.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: A very close friend of mine was killed in a motorcycle accident a week ago, and I can’t shake this terrible depression. He is on my mind every second that I’m awake. I’m fortunate that school is out for the summer because I would not be able to concentrate on my studies. I’m contacting you to find out if this emotional pain will ever leave me. I pray that it will. I will never forget this guy as long as I live. But I want to be happy when I think of him because he was such a good human being and a marvelous friend. — Nameless, Fresno, Calif. Nameless: Time is the universal healer of almost all our wounds, both physical and emotional. You will always remember the tragic loss of a loved one or a close friend, but with time, the depression ebbs and wonderful thoughts of your friend replace the blues. However, if your depression grows stronger or you feel that you are incapable of coping by yourself, please seek professional counseling. Dr. Wallace: I’m 18 and my very best friend is the same age. We both recently graduated from high school and were both planning to attend the University of Washington in a couple of weeks. But all that has changed now. My friend found out last week that she’s pregnant. Her boyfriend is trying to talk her into having an abortion, but she isn’t sure what she wants to do. Her parents are aware that she’s pregnant. Of course they’re not happy about it, but they are leaving the decision entirely up to her. They said they would stand by her regardless of what she decides to do. My friend has really used me as a sounding board and has told me that I mean more to her at this time than her parents. Now here comes the hard part. My parents both want me to sever all contact with my friend. They think it’s disgraceful that she’s pregnant and feel strongly that the “sin” she committed will taint me if I continue to be her friend. My parents used to like my friend, but not anymore. I never dreamed they would react this way because they are religious and attend church regularly. Please give me your thoughts on this. — Nameless, Centralia, Wash. Nameless: Your parents are very twisted in their thinking. You would be tainted if you deserted a friend in her time of need. This young lady desperately needs you right now, and I urge you to continue to give her love and support despite your parents’ objections. What a shame they are unable to be supportive of you and see that true friendship means sticking with someone through the tough times. I hope they eventually do see this and are able to stop adding to your friend’s difficulties by condemning her. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

for various reasons — tardiness, not performing up to par, etc. I finally was able to convince him to get tested when I noticed he was having difficulty paying attention. He was diagnosed with ADHD, and they said he has an IQ of about 80. I am working on my doctorate. I hold a job with other wives whose husbands have “great jobs,” and I sometimes don’t know what to say about Russ. He’s a good person, very loving and tries his best, but honestly, I do get frustrated and have a little bit of “husband envy.” Russ is 50 and we have no children. How do I come to grips with the fact that he may never be a provider? — Challenged in New York Dear Challenged: Your marriage has lasted 13 years, so Russ must be doing something

right. Not all men are great financial providers, but most manage to make up for it in other ways. I’ll bet the other wives never say a word about their husbands’ shortcomings during those chat fests. One way to come to grips with the fact that Russ may “never be a provider” would be to refrain from making comparisons when your co-workers start bragging about their spouses. Dear Abby: Every time I turn on the radio or television, I hear “Call 1-800-THE-COMPANY.” I know advertisers want listeners to remember them by their company name, and they think it’s a clever reminder of their telephone number — but it has become silly. I have poor eyesight, and it’s not an easy task trying to decipher those 800 numbers.

Why can’t they mention the number along with their cute little jingle? It would make contacting them a heck of a lot easier for people like me who happen to be ... Blind as a Bat in Colorado Dear Blind as a Bat: You make a good point. Foolish is the vendor who makes it difficult for prospective custom-

ers to make contact. It doesn’t make sense to sacrifice the practical for the “cute,” even though it’s often tempting.

Hope for Behcet’s patients is in prescribed solution Dear Dr. Gott: This letter is in regards to your recent article concerning the woman with Behcet’s disease. I was diagnosed with Behcet’s in 1990 and saw 27 doctors before being diagnosed and finding my way to remission. The woman in your article is suffering from one of the worst parts of Behcet’s: the inability to eat due to mouth and throat lesions. She is starving to death, and at this point, food is the medicine that she needs more than anything. This, too, happened to me. I lost 80 pounds and was in bed for months, waiting to die. Finally, a doctor prescribed Costanzi’s solution, a compound used for those with mouth cancer, etc. I know you cannot prescribe medication, but this woman needs to know that Costanzi’s will allow her to swallow again. It kills the pain long enough to take those much-needed bites of food. All she needs to do is swish and swallow, wait a few moments, and then eat or drink. Very often, doctors overprescribe. The overload of medications and the side effects are what keep a patient bedridden. In their quest to “cure” me, my doctors went so far as to try chemotherapy and did abdominal surgery, thinking I might have an undetected tumor. I did not. Please know, I do appreciate those efforts and understand them. A great many doctors are not educated about Behcet’s. So people are left to reading medical journals and joining associations. They are left to focus on the symptoms they are either experiencing or are waiting to occur and are frightened to death. In any case, these are all my opinions, and I wouldn’t want to unduly influence someone else. My main concern in writing is the Costanzi’s solution. It very well might help this poor woman. This compound, first formulated by a hematologist, might bring her a moment of sheer relief. I remember praying for that — 30 seconds of relief! To this day, although I am considered in remission, if my immune system gets knocked or if I get too tired, I might get a lesion, and Costanzi’s saves the day (as does lidocaine gel for lesions elsewhere). Dear Reader: I have reprinted your letter in its complete form because of the positive ray of hope in dealing with this complicated disorder. Costanzi’s is an oral remedy developed by Dr. John Costanzi of the University of Texas Medical Branch. Its purpose is to help debilitated patients with conditions such as oral ulcerations related to AIDS, chemotherapy and other conditions. As you pointed out in your attachment, it is comprised of Benadryl elixir, tetracycline liquid, Nystatin oral suspension and Synalar solution. Benadryl elixir is an antihistamine and anticholinergic that works by blocking histamine action. Tetracycline is an antibiotic prescribed for fighting bacterial infections. Nys-

ASK THE DOCTOR Dr. PETER

GOTT

tatin treats candidiasis of the mouth; and Synalar (a steroid) treats inflammation. As you can see, this is a whammy of a solution of infection fighters that Costanzi combined successfully to fight oral lesions. It certainly might be a possibility for a Behcet’s patient, who should bring it to the attention of his or her diagnosing physician to determine whether it is worth a try. Because I am not an oncologist, nor have I had any experience in dealing with the solution, I cannot do any more than report your findings.

Dear Abby: I’m 17 and have been dating “Raymond” for two years. The thing that concerns me is we aren’t supposed to be attracted to other people, but I think he is. During arguments he has thrown other girls in my face. That really hurt, and I can’t get over it. I think he’s attracted to other girls, but he doesn’t want me to be attracted to other guys. Can you please give me some advice? I’d really like to know what’s going on inside his head. Are his eyes for me only? — Teen in Merced, Calif. Dear Teen: Probably not. It’s normal for men — and women, by the way — of all ages to be attracted to people other than their mates. However, those with good character resist the urge to act on it.

South Africa ties Mexico

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — A joyous day for South Africa. A not quite perfect result. South Africa gave up the lead on a goal by Mexico’s Rafael Marquez in the 79th minute and settled for a 1-1 draw Friday before 84,000 horn-blaring fans, whose euphoria over the start of the first World Cup on the continent was only slightly dimmed by the tie. The match followed a day of celebration throughout all of Africa — though the excitement was tempered by the death of Nelson Mandela’s great-granddaughter in a car accident on the eve of the opener. Beyond the personal heartbreak, the tragedy stole a moment of triumph from the 91-year-old anti-apartheid leader, who campaigned to bring the World Cup to his nation despite skepticism it could be pulled off. Mandela mourned with his family and opted not to attend the match or the colorful opening ceremony that preceded it. Siphiwe Tshabalala had given the host nation a dream start, finishing off an excellent move in the 55th minute to set off wild celebrations at Soccer City. But the South Africans left defender Marquez open and he collected a leftwing cross to score the tying goal.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Lee Westwood had heard how challenging the TPC Southwind course is when the wind blows. Now the Englishman knows for himself how true all that talk really is. Westwood scrambled to birdie his final three holes in grabbing a share of a onestroke lead Friday with Garrett Willis after the second round of the St. Jude Classic with the winds gusting up to 22 mph. Westwood, making his Memphis debut this week as part of his tuneup for next week’s U.S. Open, said that made it tricky judging shots after seeing no wind Thursday. “You’ve got to be on the fairway to attack the flags,

golf and I just didn’t hit it close enough to the flag early on,” he said. “So it was a day of patience and battling, and I was rewarded at the end of the round with three birdies for doing that.” Westwood had a one-stroke lead after his opening 65, and the world’s No. 3-ranked player dropped two strokes off the pace with two bogeys. He rolled in a 26-footer for birdie on No. 17, and then hit a 9-iron within 4 feet for a 68 that tied him with Willis at 9-under 131 total through 36 holes. Willis, who spent last year on the Nationwide Tour, had five birdies in a bogey-free round to put himself in the final group for Saturday.

Charley Hoffman had the clubhouse lead early with a 65 and was at 132. Robert Karlsson (66) and Robert Garrigus (66) were tied for third at 133. Texas teenager Jordan Spieth, who became the sixth-youngest to make a PGA cut at the Byron Nelson last month, missed this cut at 1 over as he finished 2-over 142. Hoffman took advantage of his morning tee time with little wind in becoming the first to reach 8 under. His sixth birdie, which he rolled in from 78 feet on the par-3 14th, helped him take the clubhouse lead. “I think they gypped me a few feet,” Hoffman said on the measurement of a putt he See Golf, Page D4.

Hearn, McGivney take top honors

Best in the county By Jeff Byrd jbyrd@vicksburgpost.com It’s beginning to be old hat for Warren Central. For the second year in a row, the Warren Central Lady Vikes won a division title. For the second year in a row, WC coach Dana McGivney is the Vicksburg Post Coach of the Year and her best player, Chasity Hearn, earns her first player of the year honor. Next year, however, McGivney hopes to break a trend of first-round playoff exits. To do so, the Lady Vikes will need improvement in three key statistical areas, batting average, fielding percentage and earned run average. The Lady Vikes went 14-12 with a very young team. Only one senior, catcher Blair Thornton, was lost to graduation. Hearn, who batted .289, returns for her junior season along with seven other players that include both starting pitchers, all of the outfield and the rest of the infield. McGivney, though, wants more. That’s why she has put together a summer tournament schedule for her returning players and her junior varsity. The Lady Vikes 16-and-under and 14-and-under teams played in last weekend’s Rumble on the River. The varsity Lady Vikes went 1-2 in the main draw. “I didn’t help there to be a summer dropoff and I think by playing some tournaments against these select teams will help us. The more you play, the better you can get,” McGivney said. McGivney is hoping to use tournament play to improve her team’s offense. They batted just .226 and averaged just 6.26 runs and 6.38

to say .350, then we will be a lot more competitive with the better teams,” McGivney said. The two areas that will benefit are defense and pitching. The Lady Vikes made 60 errors last season and the team fielding percentage was .901. The team ERA was 5.64. “I actually thought we

played pretty well defensively. We would have our bad inning, but for the most part, we were pretty good. One of the problems we had this past weekend was people playing out of position and we don’t have Sissy (Hearn) with us,” McGivney said. “We also See All-County, Page D4.

BROOKLYN, Mich. — Kurt Busch spent Thursday hanging out at Dodge headquarters in the Detroit suburbs, chatting up the employees and shaking hands. As the star of the Kurt only major Busch NASCAR Sprint Cup team still driving Dodges, there’s a special kinship between Penske Racing and the manufacturer, which is still trying to find its way through the rubble left by the economic downturn. “With the odds stacked up against you, you always feel like you’re running an uphill battle,” Busch said. Funny, it doesn’t seem that way these days for Busch. The surging NASCAR veteran took the pole for Sunday’s 400-mile race at Michigan International Speedway with an average speed of 189.984 mph, his second pole of the season. Jamie McMurray will start second and Jimmie Johnson third. “I give all the credit to the crew and Steve Addington for making the sharp decision that it takes to set a car on the pole and stay on top of changing track conditions.” Busch enters Sunday’s race fifth in the points standings and is possibly the hottest driver on the circuit not driving for Joe Gibbs Racing. He swept the All-Star event and See NASCAR, Page D4.

U.S. team set to battle England in World Cup opener By The Associated Press RUSTENBURG, South Africa — When they emerged victorious the last time, they wound up calling it “The Game of Their Lives.” Once-unknown players have spent a lifetime reliving memories of that unexpected night in Belo Horizonte, when the United States rose up and defeated mighty Eng-

soccer land in the World Cup. Sixty years removed and 4,449 miles from that stadium in Brazil, the nations finally meet again today in a game that matters, a rematch in this year’s World Cup opener for both teams. Once again, England is stocked with the talented and the wealthy, carrying the

hopes of long-suffering supporters who still believe even though 44 years have passed since the Three Lions’ last and only World Cup title. And while the Americans are no longer obscure, and many have gained experience with the very Premier League clubs that produced England’s stars, they remain outsiders, eager to earn the respect of not only the soccer

powers but of a skeptical public back home. So, in refurbished Royal Bafokeng Stadium, in the open savannah bushveld near platinum mines and game parks filled with elephants and baboons, soccer’s English-speaking power and English-speaking upstart face off for pride, and more importantly, three points toward reaching the second

round. “We believe we’re going to win,” U.S. coach Bob Bradley said Friday night. “It’s said with no disrespect to our opponent. We certainly know that it will take a strong, strong effort on our part.” Far, far away from home, the setting is most unusual. This is the first World See Soccer, Page D4.

Conference decision for Texas looms on Tuesday AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — University of Texas regents will meet next week to decide whether the Longhorns will remain in the fast-disintegrating Big 12 or switch to another conference. The regents announced Friday that they will hold a meeting in Austin for “discussion and appropriate action regarding athletic conference membership.” The future of the Big 12 is in jeopardy after Nebraska said Friday it wants to join the Big Ten and Colorado agreed Thursday to jump to the Pac-10. The Pac-10 is also reportedly interested in inviting Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech to form a 16-team league. Texas is considered the lynchpin to the Big 12’s survival. Longhorns athletic director DeLoss Dodds has said he wants to keep the Big 12 together. It was not immediately clear if scheduling the regents meeting meant those efforts have failed. “Our goals and hopes all along have been to keep the Big 12 Conference intact,” Dodds said in a statement. “The league has been great for its members. We also have been honorable, up front and forthright with regard to our work and responsiveness to all the possible and now defin-

itive changes to conference landscapes.” “We are entrusted with the responsibility of administering our university athletics programs. That requires careful examination of any and all options. It is both premature and inappropriate to speculate on what our UT System Regents will discuss at next Tuesday’s meeting. But, as the dynamics of the Big 12 continue to change around us, we will utilize additional time to continue our work and evaluate our options.” A telephone message left with the Big 12 was not immediately returned. A spokesman for the Texas regents said the nine members would not comment before the meeting. Texas president William Powers Jr., was out of town Friday and unavailable for comment, but would be at Tuesday’s meeting, spokesman Don Hale said. Texas would need the regents’ approval to change leagues. The meeting is required to be publicly posted 72 hours in advance, which would give Dodds the weekend to keep working if he thinks the Big 12 is still salvageable. Texas A&M, which is reported to be considering a move to the Southeastern Conference, has not scheduled a regents meeting. A&M president R. Bowen

Loftin told The Associated Press on Friday that the school was content to stay in the Big 12, but the rapid changes are forcing A&M to consider other options. “We’re still working through the issues,” Loftin said. “We’re also waiting to see what happens with other schools. We were very happy to stay in the Big 12, the way it was. It’s changing now, and we need to figure out what that means. “The Big 12 is not what it was, and we have to think about its future, and ours.” Loftin would not comment on speculation that A&M is considering moves to the SEC or the Pac-10, or say if the school was leaning toward one league over another. “We have not made any decisions at this point in time,” he said. “I can say that the first consideration in any decision involving conference realignment is the athletes’ wellbeing. Geography has to be a part of the equation, and then, maintaining a strong academic program and keeping that in place will be paramount. “We’re also a school that has a very strong consciousness for traditions, and that’s a part of this, too,” he said. “You have many factors in play here, none of which I would say is dominant.”

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — So long, Big 12. Nebraska’s membership in the Big Ten Conference is official. The Big Ten’s board of presidents and chancellors unanimously welcomed Nebraska to the club on Friday, just a few hours after the school formally disclosed its interest. It takes effect July 1, 2011. Nebraska chancellor Harvey Perlman said the move offers stability “that the Big 12 simply cannot offer.” Nebraska is the Big Ten’s first addition since 1990, when Penn State joined, and it comes just six months after the league announced that it was looking at expansion. The move is a potentially crippling blow to the Big 12 and the biggest move yet in an offseason overhaul that will leave college sports looking much different by this time next year. “We’ve had a couple disappointing days with the departure of two valued members,” Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe said during a teleconference. Beebe vowed to work to keep the 10 remaining members together but acknowledged that other Big 12 schools are mulling their options. Perlman said he believed Nebraska is much more “aligned” with the Big Ten than the Big 12 when it comes to academics, culture and athletics. The university issued a statement that said for more than 20 years, Nebraska has compared itself to a list of 10 peer institutions established by the regents. Five of the 10 are Big Ten members; four are former Big Eight schools that joined Nebraska in the Big 12 in 1996.

college softball “The University of Nebraska would have new opportunities with membership in the Big Ten — and I believe the Big Ten would be a stronger conference as well,” university president J.B. Milliken said. Nebraska’s move comes at the end of a crazy week in college athletics. On Thursday, fellow Big 12 member Colorado announced it was leaving for the Pac10. Texas and other schools in the Big 12 South — Perlman told the regents that the Pac-10 had been in touch with many schools in that division — could be the next to leave. Texas regents scheduled a meeting for Tuesday to discuss the Longhorns’ future in the Big 12. “One school leaving a conference does not destroy a conference,” Perlman said. “Nebraska did not start this discussion. After the Big Ten announced it planned to consider expansion, we saw reports that Missouri would want to go to the Big Ten, including a statement by their governor, a member of board of curators and chancellor — comments that weren’t clearly supportive of the Big 12.” Athletic director Tom Osborne, the longtime football coach, agreed. “As we read the tea leaves and listened to the conversations, some of the schools that were urging us to stay, we found some of them had talked to not only one other conference or two but even three, and those were the same ones urging us to stay,” he said. To generations of Nebraska fans, going to the Big Ten at

one time would have been unthinkable. The school’s athletic tradition is built on more than a century of football games against the likes of Missouri and Kansas, dating to the days the team was known as the Bugeaters. The Huskers, in fact, have been conference partners with Iowa State, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Kansas State since 1928; with Colorado since 1948 and with Oklahoma State since 1960. Now the Huskers are on the verge of taking their five national titles in football, three Heisman trophies and enthusiastic fans east. They will look to start building new traditions, like a border rivalry with the Iowa Hawkeyes and regular trips to Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State. Watching a football camp at Beaver Stadium, Penn State coach Joe Paterno declined comment Friday. Paterno in the past has advocated for enlarging the Big Ten from 11 schools to 14. “It’s just the tip of the iceberg right now,” Penn State receivers coach Mike McQueary said of Nebraska. At Iowa State, a Big 12 school rarely mentioned in realignment discussions, officials sent an open letter to boosters expressing disappointment in the moves by Colorado and Nebraska. “But as all of the discussions about conference realignment illustrate, the future of college athletics appears to be less about academics and competitive success and more about money, as measured by television viewership and the associated revenues,” the letter said. Fatter paychecks will be coming to Nebraska, eventually.

Boise State moves to Mountain West BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Boise State on Friday accepted an invitation to join the Mountain West Conference as the twotime Fiesta Bowl winner seeks out a league that’s a better launching pad into lucrative bowl games. Boise State, now with the Western Athletic Conference, would become the Mountain West Conference’s 10th member. The move would be effective July 1, 2011. “Boise State scored — big time,” Boise State president Bob Kustra said at a celebratory news conference. The announcement was part of an ongoing conference shuffle nationwide, where leagues like the Pac-10 have lured Colorado and Nebraska is seeking membership in the Big Ten. As Boise State aims to secure a clearer path to Bowl Championship Series games worth millions, Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson said his league is boosting its strength by adding a football program that’s captured the nation’s imagination, and prime-time television exposure. The league’s main goal

is to make a better case to become the seventh college football conference awarded an automatic BCS postseason berth. “It’s my No. 1 goal, and I think I share it with members,” Thompson said during a conference call. “We are going to try to challenge, and try to position ourselves as the seventh automatic qualifying conference.” In its two BCS bowl appearances so far, Boise State beat TCU, a Mountain West member, in the Fiesta Bowl in January and it scored an 43-42 overtime upset over Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl. Boise State has also dominated the WAC, compiling a 49-4 record and winning three WAC titles in four years under Bronco coach Chris Petersen. Thompson said Colorado’s Pac-10 jump on Thursday was the catalyst for the Mountain West to move quickly to grab Boise State. He added there’s still discussion among Mountain West university presidents on whether the league should remain at 10 schools,

or expand to 12 or even 16, to boost its BCS chances. “This is a game of musical chairs,” Thompson said. “People want to have a seat when the music stops.” He expects to readjust his conference’s television package with CBS Sports and Versus to reflect BSU’s inclusion starting in 2011. The conference is midway through a 10-year, $120 million deal with the networks and Boise State athletic director Gene Bleymaier said he expects all 17 of his school’s athletic disciplines to benefit. For instance, 16 to 18 basketball games could be televised in 2011, compared to just a single game during the 200910 season, he said. “Your reputation, your prestige, the growth of programs, how people perceive you — we take another step up,” Bleymaier said. Karl Benson, the WAC commissioner and a former collegiate baseball player at Boise State, said he was disappointed in his alma mater’s departure but aimed to pick up the pieces and rebound.

Braves fall to Twins in series opener Soccer

Continued from Page D1.

By The Associated Press Francisco Liriano struck out a season-high 11 batters to edge Tim Hudson in a dazzling pitchers’ duel as the Minnesota Twins beat the Atlanta Braves 2-1 on Friday night. Liriano (6-3) allowed five hits in eight innings and Delmon Young’s pinch-hit single in the seventh inning gave the Dominican lefty just enough run support. Jon Rauch struck out Jason Heyward, Chipper Jones and Troy Glaus in the ninth for his 16th save. Hudson (6-2) went the distance for the Braves, allowing two runs on seven hits. Five of those came in the Twins’ tworun seventh inning. The game served as a ringing endorsement for Tommy John surgery, the ligament replacement procedure that once spelled the end of a pitcher’s career. Both Hudson and Liriano are enjoying resurgent seasons this year after having the surgery.

Red Sox 12, Phillies 2 David Ortiz drove in four runs, Boston led 12-0 after three innings and the Red Sox beat Philadelphia in the worst start of Jamie Moyer’s 24 seasons. The 47-year-old left-hander allowed nine runs on nine hits, including six doubles and Mike Lowell’s two-run homer, and left after failing to retire any of the first four batters in the second inning. Boston added three runs in the third off David Herndon.

Yankees 4, Astros 3 Andy Pettitte threw 71⁄3 sharp innings in his first career start against his hometown team. Francisco Cervelli hit a two-run single in New York’s three-run first inning, and Mark Teixeira added an RBI single in the fifth.

Pettitte allowed two earned runs and four hits against his former team to improve to 3-0 with a 2.10 ERA in his last four starts.

Marlins 14, Rays 9 Anibal Sanchez pitched seven solid innings and Gaby Sanchez homered twice and drove in a career-high six runs for Florida. The Marlins beat their intrastate rivals for just the third time in 13 tries over the past three seasons, handing Rays starter James Shields (5-5) his fourth consecutive loss while Anibal Sanchez (6-3) won for the fifth time in six starts.

Mets 5, Orioles 1 Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey baffled Baltimore for seven innings and Chris Carter hit his first major league homer

for New York. Dickey (4-0) gave up one run and seven hits to win his fourth straight start. The right-hander had a careerhigh eight strikeouts. Carter hit a three-run shot in the fourth inning to stake the Mets to a 4-0 lead against Jeremy Guthrie (3-7).

White Sox 10, Cubs 5 Alex Rios and A.J. Pierzynski each had four hits and homered, and Carlos Quentin also went deep for the White Sox in their third straight win. Pierzynski drove in three runs and Paul Konerko knocked in two runs and scored twice to back a strong outing by Jake Peavy (5-5), who allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings.

Indians 7, Nationals 2 Cleveland’s Austin Kearns

drove in four runs with two homers against his former team. Travis Hafner also homered for Cleveland as manager Manny Acta won his first game against the team that fired him last July 13. Jake Westbrook (4-3) gave up two runs over 71⁄3 innings and Chris Perez got his sixth save as Cleveland won for the fourth time in five games, depriving Washington of its first four-game winning streak.

Tigers 6, Pirates 2 Brennan Boesch hit a solo shot in a three-run fourth inning and Ramon Santiago had a two-run homer in a three-run sixth for Detroit. Justin Verlander (7-4) gave up two runs on four hits and matched a season high with four walks in seven-plus innings.

Horned Frogs hook ’Horns in opener By The Associated Press Matt Purke gave up three hits and struck out 11 to lead TCU to a 3-1 victory over Texas on Friday in the first game of their best-of-three super regional series. TCU (50-11) scored first when Aaron Schultz’s sacrifice fly to right scored Matt Curry from third in the second inning. The Horned Frogs got two more runs in the sixth on a wild pitch from losing pitcher Cole Green (11-2) and another sacrifice fly to right, from Joe Weik. Texas (49-12) scored when Kevin Keyes hit a 2-2 breaking ball over the left field fence.

The Longhorns had men on first and second in the eighth inning, but couldn’t bring them home. Purke (14-0) issued only one walk in 7 2-3 innings. The Horned Frogs can advance to the College World Series with a win Saturday.

Florida St. 9, Vandy 8 Mike McGee’s walkoff home run lifted the Seminoles within one victory of advancing to the College World Series for the second time in three years. The Commodores (45-19) lost the first game of their best-ofthree Super Regional despite getting 16 hits and four home

runs that brought them back from a 6-0 deficit after two innings. McGee’s 15th homer of the season was a towering shot over the fence in right-center in the ninth. Daniel Bennett (5-1) got the win and Chase Reid (4-2) took the loss. Vanderbilt needs two straight wins to earn its first CWS trip.

don’t have one of our pitchers, Chelsea (Worley), who is in Europe, but we do have Mallory Reynolds.” Hearn, the Lady Vikes’ shortstop, is playing on a select team out of Ridgeland. “I’m playing center field for the Ridgeland Rampage,” Hearn said. “We have a lot of Northwest Rankin girls. I guess you would say this is an A-ball team. We did not do good down in our tournament at Baton Rouge. But I like getting to play at a high level. This is going to help my hitting. We’ve played 10 games and I’ve already seen some faster pitchers.” Hearn’s average was solid but not as impressive in comparison to the stats of DeSoto Central, which had six play-

ers hitting over .350. The Lady Jaguars blew out WC in two games in a first-round Class 6A series. Still, Hearn’s power numbers were good. She knocked in 26 runs, and had 14 extra base hits including nine doubles and three home runs. “The season went good, but it could’ve been better,” Hearn said. Ironically, Hearn could get a chance to bat against her Lady Viking teammates this weekend in Batesville. “Both of us and the Rampage are entered in the South Panola Tournament. I just hope we don’t have to face them. Sissy will be cracking up whole time,” McGivney said with a laugh.

the 600-mile race at Charlotte last month then backed it up with a sixth-place finish at Pocono last week on a day when he didn’t have a great car. Picking up his third career victory at the two-mile oval would further stamp Busch as a legitimate contender for a Cup championship to bookend the one he captured in 2004. Busch won at Michigan in 2003 and 2007, the second triumph coming at the end of one of the longest weekends in NASCAR history after rain pushed the race back to Tuesday. Busch spent most of that weekend camped out in the motor home and joked the event should have been renamed “the 72 hours of

series. Austin Maddox and Mike Zunino drove in two runs each for the Gators (46-15), who improved to 32-3 at home and moved a victory away from their sixth trip to the College World Series. The in-state rivals play again Saturday in the NCAA Super Regional. The Gators jumped on Miami early, played flawless defense and got a career night from Panteliodis. The sophomore left-hander retired the final 14 batters and struck out a career-high 12. He allowed three hits, including a tworun home run to Yasmani Grandal.

MIS.” It could be a repeat this weekend. The forecast for Sunday is iffy at best, with showers likely at any time. Not that Busch would mind the delay if the weekend ends with him back in Victory Lane. He’s been among the tops in the series over the past month and he appears to be getting stronger as the weather gets warmer. “You’ve got to have the horsepower, you’ve got to have the aerodynamics, you’ve got to have the handling,” he said. Busch had it all on Friday, with McMurray’s run for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing giving the front row a decidedly IndyCar feel.

Cup match for the Americans in the southern hemisphere since that trip to Brazil ended with a 5-2 loss to Chile. On Friday, the U.S. bus was blocked twice when leaving the team hotel, the Bakubung Bush Lodge, and it wasn’t exactly because of traffic. “It was cool,” American captain Carlos Bocanegra said. “A big elephant was just eating, I think, on the path.” For England, the U.S. seems to be sort of a generic opponent, like the teams that lose to the Harlem Globetrotters. During coach Fabio Capello’s nine-minute prematch news conference, there was not a single reference to the Americans. While England is ranked eighth in the world and the U.S. 14th, it might as well be first and 207th. “We are sure that we go forward in this competition,” Capello said. Americans like Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey and Tim Howard have succeeded in the fast-paced English club game. And last year they finished second in the Confederations Cup, beating African champion Egypt

3-0 in this very stadium and before defeating European champion Spain 2-0 in the semifinal. “The USA are very hard working — very fit and physical,” England captain Steven Gerrard said. “They will be trying to deny us time and space on the ball. They know we have quality on the ball. We are expecting to be pressed really quickly. I’m sure it will be a good physical battle.” There was no live broadcast in the United States of the 1950 game. Indeed, when the initial account came across, some assumed it was a mistake and that the English had won 10-0 or 10-1. But, as was celebrated in a movie, the U.S. won 1-0 on a 38th-minute goal by Joe Gaetjens, a Haitan immigrant who wasn’t even an American citizen, so lax were the rules of that era. Gaetjens disappeared in 1964, presumed killed in Haiti by forces of dictator Francois “Papa Doc” Duvalier. “I say the older I get, the more famous I become,” Bahr said. “I wasn’t for famous for 50 years.”

He gave that stroke back with a bogey on No. 8 when he was short of the par-3 green and didn’t get up and down. Westwood pushed a 17-footer for birdie on No. 9 just right of the hole. He dropped another shot on the par-3 14th when he hit his tee shot into a bunker behind the green and two-putted. “I set myself a little task of trying to birdie two of the last four holes to shoot under 70,” Westwood said. “I birdied the last three holes and had a good chance at 15. I’m pleased with that. It was a great way to finish off the day and send it into tomorrow with momentum.” Willis won the 2001 Tucson Open before finding himself back on the Nationwide Tour last year where he finished 12th on the money list to get back to the PGA Tour. He has made 10 of 13 cuts this year and tied for 13th at the Texas Open for his best finish. He had the firstround lead at the Transitions Championship after open-

ing with a 65 but finished tied for 72nd. Willis, who lives in Knoxville, Tenn., said that taught him a very important lesson about patience. “I just kind of realize that this is the opportunity for me to support my family,” Willis said. “I don’t need to go out there and shoot at every pin. I can go out there, shoot for the middle of the green, try to make a putt from 20, 30 feet. If I don’t, tap it in for par, and I’m just trying to play as well as I possibly can.” That focus helped on a day where he hit an approach into a fan’s chair on the par-5 third and had to wait for a ruling for a drop where the ball rolled behind a tree. That forced him to punch out left of the green where he got a lucky kick with it rolling up to 30 feet closer to set him up for birdie. He rolled in a 3-footer for birdie on No. 9 and had his own strong finish with birdies on three of the final four holes. His 18-foot putt lipped in for birdie on No. 15 when he thought he had missed it, two-putted for birdie from 60 feet on the par-5 16th and watched Tom Pernice’s putt on the same line on No. 18.
