Local judges won’t hear Stirgus lawsuit By Steve Sanoski firstname.lastname@example.org To avoid “any appearance of impropriety,” Warren County’s two circuit court judges have recused themselves in the $1 million lawsuit that former Vicksburg Housing Authority Director James Stirgus Sr. filed against former Mayor Laurence Leyens, former Police Chief Tommy Moffett and
James Stirgus Sr.
four VHA commissioners, court records show. Special Judge Billy G.
Bridges was appointed by the Supreme Court of Mississippi on Monday to preside over the case in light of the Chief Tommy June 3 recusal Moffett filing by Circuit Court Judges Isadore W. Patrick and M. James Chaney.
Leyens and Moffett have separately filed for the lawsuit to be dismissed, with both asking for all court and attorney fees to be charged to Stirgus and his lawyers, Travis T. Vance Jr. and James W. Nobles Jr. The four VHA commissioners named in the suit — Jay Kilroy, Abraham Green, Charles Wright and Christopher Barnett — meanwhile have requested an extension until
New water pipe connected; no boiling needed, city says By Steve Sanoski email@example.com On its second attempt, a city contractor successfully made the first of four connections to a new 30-inch water main at Washington and Main streets early this morning while keeping enough pressure on the line to prevent a boil water notice for Vicksburg’s 10,000 customers, officials said. “We were right down to the wire, but at 3:30 this morning we were able to start re-pressurizing the system and, at this point, everything looks good,” said Public Works Director Bubba Rainer. Flow from the city’s Water Treatment Plant at the Vicksburg Harbor was cut off around 11 p.m. Wednesday, and Rainer said by the time the work was completed, “We were probably down to our last 30 minutes of water supply.” The reserve had been siphoned from the city’s four water towers, which hold a combined 1.75 million gallons. While a citywide boil water notice was narrowly averted, an unrelated notice was issued this morning for residents along Sky Farm Avenue east of Pemberton Street, and for 2nd Avenue residents, because of work on a 6-inch pipe at 207 Ridgeway St. A pair of faulty valves kept contractor Hemphill Construction Company from making the connection on its first attempt late Tuesday and early Wednesday morning. Water was never completely cut on the first attempt, during which Hemphill spent the night repairing valves instead of tapping into the new line. “Everything worked like it was supposed to last night,” Rainer said this morning. Three more connections to the new water main remain to be made, Rainer said, but only the one completed this morning required the city to cut water to all customers. See Water, Page A9.
Monday to respond to the charges. Claiming he was wrongfully terminated and defamed, Stirgus’ suit contends “all of the (defendants) agreed to carry out orders and directions of Moffett and Leyens to oust (Stirgus) from his job by publishing and dissemination of slanderous matters, including accusations that (Stirgus) was involved in the sale of illicit
WASHINGTON — BP’s humbled CEO sat grim-faced this morning as a House chairman accused him of being oblivious to the risks of the company’s deep water operations. Tony Hayward waited his turn to tell Congress he was “deeply sorry” for his company’s catastrophic oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., told the BP executive that in Gov. Haley his commitBarbour tee’s review says White of 30,000 items, there House was “not a messed up single e-mail or document that you paid even the slightest attention to the dangers at this well.” A day after agreeing to a $20 billion victims’ compensation fund, Hayward was to tell Congress in prepared testimony that he was “personally devastated” by the April explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig that triggered the giant spill — and that he understands the anger that Americans feel toward him and his company. Before beginning his own testimony, Hayward was buffeted by scathing criticism from lawmakers from both parties. Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, the senior Republican on the Energy and Commerce Committee, said he agreed with the call of Democrats on the panel for answers. But Barton accused the White House of conducting a “$20 billion shakedown” by requiring oil giant BP to establish a fund to compensate those hurt by the Gulf Coast oil spill. “I’m ashamed of what happened in the White House” on Wednesday, Barton said.

drugs at the (VHA) premises, and that he... was guilty of theft or embezzlement of (VHA) property.” Stirgus, 80, had been director of the housing authority for just shy of 21 years when the VHA board of directors voted 4-0 — with one commissioner abstaining — to fire him in a closed session on May 19, 2009.

Sing praises of beaches, lawmaker says By Danny Barrett Jr. firstname.lastname@example.org
Getting the word out that Gulf Coast beaches are still virtually oil-free is as important as tracking BP and state agencies’ response and cleanup efforts, said the chairman of a select state Senate disaster assessment committee. Fewer hotel bookings and shrinking restaurant tabs in a region still wracked with reminders of Hurricane Sen. Billy Katrina Hewes are affecting the area’s “bread and butter,” state Sen. Billy Hewes told a VicksburgWarren County Chamber of Commerce luncheon Wednesday. “It’s a horrible domino effect that we’re dealing with,” Hewes said of what he termed “erroneous reporting” by media worldwide of the disaster’s scope in Mississippi, which Gov. Haley Barbour has blamed for causing drops in tourism. So far, cleanup efforts in state waters have taken place only on Petit Bois Island and tar ball collections have been minimal. The state’s proximity from where midsummer winds direct the water current — eastward and away from the beaches of Biloxi and Gulfport — has been mentioned as a possible reason. See Hewes, Page A10.

Swampy area to be drained in search for man The search for a missing Warren County man continued early this morning as officials planned to drain a parcel of swamp land so the team can continue looking on foot. Jason Allen Ashley, 31, was reported missing by family on May 27 and his vehicle was found Friday near the area where Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said the search was centered today. He said deputies from Warren and Issaquena counties will cross 12,695 acres of Mahannah Wildlife Management Area — on foot and on four-wheelers — once standing water is drained into adjacent Hog Bayou. The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries & Parks is handling the draining, Pace said. “This will allow us to search more thoroughly,” he said. Ashley’s 2000 Jeep was found abandoned Friday in a remote area off Floweree Road near the Issaquena County line, three miles from his home and near the area
from staff reports of the ongoing search by foot and air. Mahannah, 15 miles north of Vicksburg, consists of bottomland hardwoods, agriculture fields, hardwood reforestation and a waterfowl habitat.
County man charged with child molestation A Vicksburg man was in the Warren County Jail this morning accused of child molestation. James H. Strickland, 62, 5236 Oak Ridge Road, was arrested at the Warren County Sheriff’s Office at 1:24 p.m. Wednesday after being questioned in the case reported by family members, Sheriff Martin Pace said. Strickland was charged with molesting a child younger than 14, Pace said. He was held without bond. Separately, a Vicksburg man was released from the Warren County Jail Wednesday after being held for
failing to register as a sex offender. Christopher Ross, 45, 201 Berryman Road Apt. I68, surrendered at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday after he heard he was being sought in a routine check of sex offenders in the area, Pace said. Pace said Ross, who later was released on a $5,000 bond, had failed to report a move out-of-state.
City man jailed for sale of cocaine A Vicksburg man was in the Issaquena County Jail this morning accused of selling cocaine. Richard Allen, 42, 525 Feld St., was arrested at 4:22 p.m. Wednesday at Mission 66 and Openwood Street and charged with sale of cocaine, Vicksburg police Sgt. Sandra Williams said. Allen’s arrest stemmed from an undercover operation, in which an officer saw Allen sell the drug, Williams said. He was being held on a $15,000 bond.
TVs, computers hot in city, county Six residential burglaries and an auto burglary were reported in the city and county Wednesday. • A 42-inch Visio TV valued at $800, a Nintendo Wii game system valued at $199, a Dell laptop valued at $600 and an iPod player valued at $120 were reported missing at 12:49 p.m. from a home in the 1500 block of East Avenue. • A Hewlett Packard laptop, a PlayStation 3 game system valued at $500, a Nintendo Wii balance board and games valued at $500, a PGA Cup match ring valued at $1,500, a Sony camera valued at $300, a 42-inch TV valued at $1,200, a 36-inch TV valued at $800 and an assortment of costume jewelry were reported missing at 12:35 p.m. from a home in the 2300 block of Drummond Street. • Ten minutes earlier and a block away in the 2400 block of Drummond, a cell phone charger valued at $20 was reported missing from a 2001

Judge: Irby can’t withdraw guilty plea JACKSON (AP) — A Hinds County judge has refused to allow a woman serving 18 years in prison to withdraw her guilty plea to driving while drunk in a wreck that killed two doctors last year. Circuit Judge Tomie Green ruled today against Karen Irby, who pleaded guilty to two counts of culpable negligence manslaughter. A motion filed by her attorney said Irby’s former lawyer was more interested in representing her husband, who paid the $500,000 legal bill, than Irby, who blames her husband for the crash. Green sentenced Karen Irby to 18 years on May 11, after the 39-year-old mother of two pleaded guilty in the crash that killed Drs. Lisa Dedousis and Daniel Pogue.

Lester Spell won’t seek 5th term as Mississippi ag commissioner By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — Mississippi Agriculture Commissioner Lester Spell said Wednesday he won’t seek a fifth term, opening the field for one of the eight statewide offices voters will fill in 2011. Spell, 67, announced the decision Wednesday before sending a letter to supporters. “Because next year, 2011, is an election year, I wanted to make my intentions known now so that potential candidates for this office have ample time to make campaign plans,” Spell said in a written statement. Spell was a veterinarian and Riceland mayor before he was elected agriculture commissioner in 1995. He was first elected statewide as a Democrat. He switched to
the Republican Party in 2005, saying his ideas about government efficiency were a better match with the GOP. Lester Spell reduced Spell the size of the state Department of Agriculture and Commerce by about one-third during his tenure, making many of the cuts soon after he took office in January 1996. During his tenure, the department created a “Make Mine Mississippi” program to promote agricultural products that originate in the state. Spell also lobbied legislators to enact a catfish labeling law to let consumers know the origin of the fish they’re buying. In 2009, the
department persuaded legislators to enact a country-of-origin labeling law for most fruits, vegetables and meat sold in Mississippi grocery stores. Including Spell, at least three of the eight statewide offices won’t have an incumbent seeking re-election during Mississippi’s 2011 elections. Republican Gov. Haley Barbour is limited to two terms and can’t run again. Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant is running for governor, leaving that job open. Two statewide officials — Democratic Attorney General Jim Hood and Republican Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney — have announced they’re seeking re-election. Treasurer Tate Reeves and Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, both Republicans, haven’t revealed their plans.
State colleges bank on tuition hikes JACKSON — Mississippi’s public universities are banking on tuition increases and enrollment growth to offset shrinking state funding as they head into the new fiscal year on July 1. The state College Board on Wednesday approved fiscal 2011 budgets for the eight universities. Combined, their education and general funds will be about $7.2 million less than this year. The new budgets continue a dramatic shift toward relying more on tuition and less on state funds. In 1998, 54 percent of the total universities spent on education and general budgets came from state funds, while tuition covered 33 percent. Tuition revenues account for 54 percent and state appropriations 40 percent of budgets adopted Wednesday. In January, the College Board signed off on tuition hikes ranging from about 4.5
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS percent at Mississippi Valley State University to 9 percent at Jackson State University and Delta State University. On average, students will pay about 6.8 percent, roughly $322, more for tuition. Each of the budgets shows cuts in travel and academic support programs. MVSU President Donna Oliver said her budget directors prepared last year for the anticipated cuts. “That has kept us in very good shape,” she said.
Layoffs coming at Oakley in Raymond JACKSON — State officials said 115 workers will lose their jobs on June 30 at the Oakley Training School in Raymond.
The Mississippi Department of Human Services made the announcement Wednesday in a news release. MDHS executive director Don Thompson said lawmakers trimmed 248 positions from the agency for the fiscal year that begins July 1. Thompson says 191 are from the Division of Youth Services, which runs the training school for youthful offenders and currently houses about 51 boys and four girls. Thompson said after the layoffs, the facility will house about 50 male offenders and will have about 220 employees. Beginning July 1, a state law provides that youth can only be sent to the training school for committing a felony or for three or more misdemeanor crimes.

The truth about the Southern border Many Americans take it as fact that the U.S.-Mexico border and adjoining region are out of control and more violent than ever. You hear it on talk radio and read it on right-wing blogs. You even hear it from Republican elected officials who demand that the Obama administration do more to bring security and safety to the border region. And when people hear an argument often enough, they tend to believe it. A 2,000-mile border conjures up images of the Old West where anything goes and lawlessness is the order of the day. The problem is, it’s not true. Granted, the Obama administration hasn’t stopped illegal immigration. No administration could. That’s like faulting him for not ending poverty or paying off the national debt. As long as there are jobs available for the taking, people will come across the border, some of them illegally, to take them. But the Obama administration, and the Bush administration before it, have done a good job of
deploying resources and bulking up border enforcement. It’s certainly not fair for critics to say, as we approach the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, that the U.S. government takes a hands-off approach to border security. Quite the contrary. Since 2004, the number of Border Patrol agents stationed on the U.S.-Mexico border has doubled. Most recently, of course, President Barack Obama announced plans to deploy 1,200 National Guard troops to the border. And, as one would hope, a consequence of the crackdown is greater security on the border. As U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Lloyd Easterling told The Associated Press, “The border is safer now than it’s ever been.” There are numbers to back up that claim. A study by Customs and Border Protection, which was obtained by The Associated Press with a Freedom of Information Act request, shows that 3 percent of Border Patrol agents and officers were assaulted last
40 YEARS AGO: 1970
year. Most of those attacks came in the form of rocks being thrown at them by assailants in Mexico. During the same period, the percentage of police officers and sheriff’s deputies assaulted in non-border regions was significantly higher at 11 percent. The Federal Bureau of Investigation also found that proximity to the border doesn’t necessarily mean higher crime rates. Those who live in San Diego already know it. The city has the third-lowest violent crime rate among the nation’s large cities, according to recently released FBI data, and large cities all along the southern border have low crime rates. You wouldn’t expect that to be the case if you’re one of those people who believes the border region is out of control. Clearly, when it comes to violence along the border, there is a disconnect between the rhetoric and the reality.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler
Oil spill should advance clean energy effort If there was any doubt about it, the Gulf oil catastrophe demonstrates conclusively what would happen if the country got hit with another terrorist attack: Americans would start pointing fingers at one another, starting with the president. It’s been a fixation of the media and many Republicans to make the spill into President Barack Obama’s “Katrina” or his “Iran hostage crisis,” with TV commentators counting the days since BP’s well began fouling the Gulf of Mexico. Some right-wingers previously furious at “government takeovers” of this and that have swiveled to demand to know why Obama didn’t “do more” to stop the oil flow. And the left has been using the crisis to allege that the spill is the fault of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, who sold out the federal government to Big Oil. Environmentalists want to use the spill to put a halt to all offshore oil and gas drilling, even though the United States depends on oil for 40 percent of its energy needs and hundreds of offshore rigs operate safely around the world. On top of all that, there’s the drama criticism: Is Obama “angry” enough or “empathetic” enough? He’s bought into it to the extent of assuring NBC’s Matt Lauer that he’s looking into “whose ass to kick.” In response to public rage at BP, the administration is threatening
Some right-wingers previously furious at ‘government takeovers’ of this and that have swiveled to demand to know why Obama didn’t ‘do more’ to stop the oil flow.
criminal action in the case even as it’s forced to rely on the oil company to stop the oil flow and pay for the cleanup. Obama, while furiously shipping resources to the scene and visiting himself, is determined to use the crisis to pass his previously dead climate change agenda, now redubbed “clean energy,” with the emphasis on cap-and-trade limits on carbon. Republicans are determined to block that, labeling it “cap and tax” and claiming it will cost jobs in a recession, even though the main bill on the agenda, sponsored by Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., doesn’t take effect until 2013. At the moment, according to a Washington Post/ABC poll, the public rates the federal response to this disaster worse than its handling of the 2005 Katrina hurricane — largely because that’s the way Republicans look at it, by a margin of 20 points.
Obama is as dependent on BP to handle the spill as Bush was on the inept former governor of Louisiana and mayor of New Orleans. There are legitimate questions about whether Obama should be depending on BP for estimates of the volume of the spill, whether enough equipment has been deployed and whether the government was slow in agreeing to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s (R) request to get barrier islands built to protect his state’s coastline. What really counts, though, is whether Obama can get Democrats and Republicans to agree on constructive energy and environmental policies that will reduce dependence on foreign sources and move away from polluting fuels. Obama claims he will be able to persuade at least a few Republicans to back the Kerry-Lieberman bill, though none is in sight so far. Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.), who helped
write it, has pulled away — though he has not condemned its contents. Lieberman aides say their bill was specifically designed to be businessfriendly and Republican-friendly, expanding nuclear power and offshore drilling and imposing no energy taxes until 2030. Indeed, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has been neutral on it, and it’s been endorsed by oil companies, natural gas and wind advocate T. Boone Pickens, the nuclear power industry, and the Edison Electric Institute, as well as environmental groups. Still, according to the Senate’s No. 3 Republican, Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), the bill is “premature, unwise and doesn’t have a chance of passing the Senate.” He claims it would put caps on carbon emissions at electric utilities before they have figured out how to develop low-cost means to capture or reuse carbon from coal, which produces 50 percent of U.S. electricity. “There is plenty of clean energy legislation that Congress could pass in 2010 instead of cap-and-trade,” he said, including several bills he’s introduced. With Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., Alexander has proposed extending $100 billion in loan guarantees to noncarbon energy projects, which he thinks will lead to construction of 100 nuclear plants over the next 20 years. A centerpiece of Democratic legislation is likely to be a bill sponsored
by Energy and Natural Resources Chairman Jeff Bingaman (N.M.), imposing standards for utilities to use “renewable” fuel sources. Alexander says that nuclear power, which supplies 20 percent of U.S. electricity, is excluded in that bill in favor of wind and solar power, which produce 2 percent. Another bill that Alexander is cosponsoring with Democratic Sens. Byron Dorgan of North Dakota and Jeff Merkley of Oregon would promote rapid development of electric cars and plug-in technology. And, he said, Republicans would advance such projects as converting carbon from coal into gasoline or limestone pellets for building materials — “making cap-and-trade a dinosaur method of reducing emissions.” The good news from the Gulf spill — if there is any — is that Obama is not yielding to pressure to close down offshore drilling, as expansion of nuclear power was stopped after a nonfatal accident at Three Mile Island in 1979. Other good news is that the spill could lead to action on clean energy legislation — if Republicans and Democrats can stop finger-pointing at each other. •

smart money Q: I have several department store credit cards I have not used in many years. I would like to cancel them, but I am told that canceling cards can lower your credit rating. My credit rating is 800. I own my house and car and all of my bills are paid in full every month. What do I do? — M.A., via e-mail A: I also have department store cards I have not used for many years — and a couple I have not used at all. The only reason I opened bruce them was because
I was making a large purchase and, by opening a card, I was promised a percent discount. Congratulations on an 800 credit rating; very few of us are fortunate enough to have that high of a score. It is true that canceling credit cards will lower your credit rating, but since you are not using them and they are not charging any kind of a fee to keep them placed, where is the advantage in canceling them? Put them away or cut the cards in half, and check your statements from time to time to make sure there is no identity theft. Sooner or later the stores will cancel them, due to non-use, and that doesn’t affect your credit rating. •

TOKYO (AP) — Toyota will restart the delayed construction of its Mississippi plant, which will provide 2,000 jobs and be up and running by the fall of next year, the Japanese automaker said today. Toyota Motor Corp.’s auto plant in Blue Springs, in northeast Mississippi, was at first planned to be completed by 2010, but building was suspended after the U.S. economy nose-dived in late 2008. The plant will make 150,000 Corolla compact cars a year, a change of plans from the initial plan to make the Prius hybrid there, Toyota said. Toyota President Akio Toyoda said he was happy to make the announcement, and expressed appreciation for the understanding on the delay shown by Gov. Haley Barbour.
Gov. Haley Barbour, in a statement, said Toyota was fulfilling a promise to resume construction on the plant. He said Mississippians ‘had good reason to keep our faith in them.’ “We aim to give our full effort to manufacturing vehicles that can bring joy and to contribute to the region’s economy and society,” Toyoda said in a statement. Barbour, in a statement, said Toyota was fulfilling a promise to resume construction on the plant. He said Mississippians “had good reason to keep our faith in them.” A celebration was to take place today at the plant site. Toyota, the world’s No. 1 automaker, had been on an expansion track until sales tanked from the financial crisis.

Mississippians set to get free air cooling units A new miracle air cooler is actually being given away free to the first 1,714 readers who call to beat the order deadline for their first miracle air cooler to stay cool for just pennies a day
Save money: uses 95% less electricity to blast out cold air with no windows, no vents and no freon R.K. BeRRy
Universal Media Syndicate
UMS – Everyone wants to stay cool this summer. But just turning on your air conditioner sucks the money right out of your pockets. Well today, for the first time ever brand new MIRA‑COOL™ air cool‑ ers are actually being given away free to the general public for the next 48 hours starting at precisely 8:00am this morning. The only thing today’s readers have to do is call the Toll Free Hotline with their order for their first MIRA‑COOL air cooler before the 48‑hour deadline. The first 1,714 readers who do are instantly getting their second MIRA‑COOL air cooler absolutely free. This is all happening to announce the MIRA‑COOL air cooler which actually rolls from room‑to‑room so you can turn down the central air conditioning and stay cool anywhere. That way, everyone who gets them first can beat the swel‑ tering heat and immediately start sav‑ ing on their electric bills. Just in time for the unbearable sum‑ mer heat, MIRA‑COOL portable air coolers are being delivered directly to the doors of all Mississippians who beat the deadline. The good news is the MIRA‑COOL portable air cooler is not an air condi‑ tioner, so it only costs about a penny an hour to operate. These remarkable air cooling units are being called a miracle because they use 95% less electricity than a typical room air conditioner, yet blast out ice cooled air without any windows, vents or freon. They even come with two sets of reus‑ able ice blocks. Everyone is getting the MIRA‑COOL because all you do is fill it up and plug it in to stay cool for just pen‑ nies a day. So what’s the catch? “Well, only the first 1,714 readers who call 1‑866‑964‑2336 to beat the order deadline for their first MIRA‑COOL air cooler are getting their second one free,” said Chris Gallo, Operations Director. “We’re sorry, but we just can’t afford to give any more than that away free to readers of today’s publication,” Gallo said. “We can barely keep up ever since we started giving the MIRA‑COOL air coolers away free. With summer right around the corner, everyone’s trying to get them,” said Gallo. You just won’t find these MIRA‑COOL air coolers in the national chain stores. That makes the first MIRA‑COOL air cooler a real steal for just two hundred ninety‑eight dollars and shipping since when you cover only shipping of the sec‑ ond MIRA‑COOL air cooler the entire cost is free. This free giveaway is the best way to slash summer cooling bills and stay cool all summer long. The MIRA‑COOL air cooler rolls from room‑to ‑room to keep you cool so you can turn down the air and save a ton of money on cooling bills. “You see, with a central air condi‑ tioner you are paying to cool areas of your home that you’re not using. And window air conditioners are even worse because they weigh a ton so they’re a hassle to move,” said Gallo. But the MIRA‑COOL air cooler actu‑ ally rolls from room‑to‑room so it’s easy to stay cool in any room of the house for

just pennies a day. And here’s the best part. Readers of this publication who beat the 48 hour order deadline are getting one free. The MIRA‑COOL air cooler only uses about 1¢ an hour of electricity, so the potential energy savings are absolutely incredible. “We’re trying to make sure no one gets left out, but you better hurry because we only have 1,714 MIRA‑COOL air coolers to hand out to today’s readers for free,” confirms Gallo. Getting the MIRA‑COOL air cooler is the smart way to slash summer electric bills and still stay cool all summer long. And getting the second one free is like putting around three hundred bucks in your pocket and you can keep everyone in your family cool. “We’re bracing ourselves for all the calls because everyone wants to save on their electric bills and stay cool this summer. But those that really want to stay cool will be telling our operators they want two and they’ll get two more free,” said Gallo. “So when lines are busy keep trying or log onto www.MIRA‑COOL.com.

PRECISION FORECAST BY CHIEF METEOROLOGIST BARBIE BASSSETT
Continued from Page A1. Leyens was mayor when the four VHA commissioners named in the suit were appointed to their posts by a 2-0 Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen vote on Feb. 23, 2009. North Ward Alderman Michael Mayfield — who is not named in Stirgus’ suit — was the only voting alderman on the matter, as South Ward Alderman Sid Beauman had recused himself from the vote because his wife works for the VHA. Other than appointing VHA commissioners, who in turn hire a director, the mayor and aldermen have no control over housing authority
finances, operations or management. Because it was a personnel issue, the commissioners were never required to publicly divulge their justification for firing Stirgus. The housing authority was under close scrutiny at the time of Stirgus’ firing due to the December 2008 arrest of former VHA maintenance supervisor Charles Jones Jr. on charges he had 2.2 pounds of cocaine shipped to him at VHA executive offices on Elizabeth Circle. Jones also later was indicted on a charge that he embezzled VHA property, but that charge was dropped in a November plea bar-
gain that saw Jones get a 10-year prison sentence in exchange for pleading guilty to cocaine possession. Stirgus has never been charged with any crimes stemming from his time as director of the housing authority and has steadfastly declined any wrongdoing. Moffett was police chief when Jones was arrested, and he attended several VHA commission meetings in the months following, at which he urged the commission to take a closer look at housing authority operations under Stirgus. Moffett was fired by the Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen in a
2-1 vote shortly after Mayor Paul Winfield bested Leyens in the May 2009 election, and he has since been installed as police chief in the Mississippi Delta town of Indianola. According to court filings, Moffett is being represented by Starkville attorney Austin Vollor; Leyens is being represented by Gene Parker of the Vicksburg firm Varner, Parker and Sessums; and the VHA commissioners are represented by Michael G. Huey of Mobile. Stirgus “continues to endure long hours of mental anguish and suffering... along with continued embarrassment and humiliation” due
Water Continued from Page A1. With the most crucial connection completed, Hemphill Construction should have water flow completely switched to the new line and the project completed by the end of the month, Rainer said. The new water main will be one block from the site of a March 26 land shift at Washington and Jackson streets that jeopardized the vital 36-inch water main. The new line diverts east off Washington at Main Street and turns south on Walnut before heading back west along Jackson Street and tying back into the existing line. Washington Street has been closed from Jackson to Main streets since the land shift, and additional nearby closures have cropped up because of the pipe relocation. The shift was discovered by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contract employees who had been doing groundwork since November on an interpretive center and museum
at the adjacent, dry-docked MV Mississippi IV. While the Corps never publicly took responsibility for causing the land shift — which has also left parts of Washington Street cracked and sagging — it agreed to pay for the $1.36 million relocation shortly after. Rainer said it is not yet clear if Washington Street will be reopened to traffic before the July 4 weekend, when thousands of locals and tourists will descend on the area for the annual concert and fireworks show at the nearby Levee Street Depot. “Once we get the new line in place, the Corps is going to start working to stabilize the hill where the land shift took place,” he said. “We’ll have to sit down with the Corps and see if we can get that stretch of Washington Street open. If we can, we will reopen it.” An emergency was declared by the Vicksburg Board of Mayor
and Aldermen immediately after the land shift, clearing the way for officials to get proposals instead of sealed bids on the work. Hemphill Construction came in with the lowest proposal of several gathered, Rainer said. The first failed attempt to tap into the new line is not expected to increase the timeline or cost for the relocation project, he added. Hemphill was given 30 days to complete the project when it began work in late May. The water main running beneath Washington Street is the primary line from the city’s water plant north of downtown on Haining Road, which draws its water from several nearby wells. The line splits into two 24-inch lines — one heading east and one continuing south along Washington — at Jackson Street. From those lines, the system branches into webs of 18-, 10-, 8- and 6-inch lines to deliver water to homes and businesses across the city.
to his termination, his suit reads. “His good reputation and good name was severely damaged by the actions of the defendants.” Along with lost wages — he was making $70,000 a year when fired — Stirgus is seeking to recoup $15,000 in medical bills the suit claims he incurred during a five- day hospital stay that he says is due to his being fired. In total, the suit seeks $1 million in compensation “jointly and severally,” meaning the defendants could be held responsible for damages individually or mutually.

Force Base, Mississippi, and decided to make the Gulf his home. Shortly before leaving the service, Frank began working on the casino boats where he learned about the industry and developed a passion for it. His entrepreneurial spirit drove him to launch his first business, S1 Gaming. Most recently, he was the owner of Southern Mississippi Signs. Frank was always successful in business mainly due to his love for people, his giving spirit and always coming through with what he promised. Although Frank enjoyed many hobbies in life such as golfing, fishing, traveling and scuba diving, his adventurous nature brought him to what he became the most passionate about: kite boarding and riding his Harley.

Blackwater case ‘had merit’ WASHINGTON — There was more than enough untainted evidence to justify a trial for five Blackwater Worldwide guards involved in a deadly 2007 shooting in Baghdad, the Justice Department told a federal appeals court. The department said some evidence was harmless and did not justify scuttling charges. In December, a federal judge dismissed the case against guards who had opened fire on a crowded Baghdad street, killing 17 people.

Gov. Barbour says $20B escrow by BP might hurt, not help By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — Mississippi’s governor said Wednesday he’s not sure the federal government should have made BP put $20 billion into escrow to compensate victims of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill because the company needs it to drill more wells and make money so it can pay up. President Barack Obama insisted BP set the money aside, and the company agreed to put $5 billion a year into the fund for the next four years. “If they take a huge amount of money and put it in an escrow account so they can’t use it to drill oil wells and produce revenue, are they going to be able to pay us?” Gov. Haley Barbour said Wednesday. Millions of gallons of oil have

Tar balls on the sand in Orange Beach, Ala. gushed into the Gulf since a BP well ruptured eight weeks ago off the Louisiana coast. “We need them to gener-

Oil England.” It was a reference to Hayward’s much-criticized earlier remark that some day he hoped to get “my life back” and to comments on the White House driveway on Wednesday by BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg that “we care about the small people” of the Gulf Coast. Hayward sipped a beverage and jotted notes as one lawmaker after another scorched him. A group of protesters milled in the hallway outside the hearing room, including Diane Wilson, 61, a fourthgeneration fisher from Seadrift, Texas, near the Gulf Coast. Wilson, appearing with a black-stained hand, said she wanted to send a message: “Hayward should go to jail.” She was joined by Ann Wright, 63, of Honolulu,
Hawaii, who wore a BP hard hat, overalls and sunglasses adorned with dollar signs. “BP doesn’t really care about this,” she said, pulling out an oil-stained rubber ducky. Waxman opened the hearing with rare praise for the oil giant. “Yesterday, BP pledged to establish a $20 billion escrow account and to suspend its dividend payments for the rest of the year. I’m sure these were not easy decisions for you, but they were the right ones, and I commend you for them,” he told the embattled CEO. But then the gloves came off. “When you became CEO of BP, you promised to focus like a laser on safe and reliable operations,” Waxman said. “We wanted to know what you had done to keep this promise.”

Right now, we’re doing told to wait,” Hewes said, adding officials’ emphasis on tourism and tourism grants BP has paid to four Gulf states doesn’t mean they’re downplaying the spill. “A lot of folks have criticized some of our public officials for downplaying it,” Hewes said. “There’s nothing to downplay. This is a very serious ecological disaster. We hope it does not come to our shores, but if it does we’re gonna be prepared.” Shareholder dividends have been halted to finance a $20 billion fund to compensate victims of the spill along the Gulf Coast, a major piece of talks between BP offi-

Continued from Page A1. Hewes said a photo taken by the London-based Reuters news service “a week or two” after the Deepwater Horizon oil rig went up in flames misidentified crews clearing sticks and seaweed from a beach as oil being cleaned from Gulf Coast beaches. Hewes, R-Gulfport, was named to chair one of two committees in each body of the Legislature to track the cleanup and, possibly, recommend action by the full House and Senate. Most committee members represent areas in the coastal counties of Hancock, Harrison and Jackson. BP, the Coast Guard and the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality “are doing everything they can,” based on hearings held with the select Senate com-

try right now, the residents of the Gulf.” Barbour said he has “no objection” to Obama’s decision to appoint former Mississippi Gov. Ray Mabus to develop a long-term Gulf Coast Restoration Plan. Obama said BP will pay for the plan, and Mabus is to work with local communities to develop it. “If this is really what it sounded like — that is, the federal government is going to make a long-term plan for the gulf states — then it’s a terrible idea,” Barbour said. “Mississippians will decide about Mississippi’s future.” Since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded in the Gulf on April 20 and killed 11 workers, oil has moved into Louisiana’s delicate marshes, tar balls have washed ashore in Mississippi and Alabama and hundreds of animals have died.
Continued from Page A1. But Rep. Ed Markey disagreed, saying it was “not a slush fund, not a shakedown. ... It was the government of the United States working to protect the most vulnerable citizens that we have in our country right now, the residents of the Gulf.” “It’s BP’s spill,” the Massachusetts Democrat said, “but it is America’s ocean, and it is America’s citizens who are being harmed. ... No, this is not a shakedown of the company.” Rep. Michael Burgess, a Texas Republican, said that BP “appears to have taken their eye off the ball.” Some of the sharpest criticism came from Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich. “We are not small people. But we wish to get our lives back,” he told Hayward. “I’m sure you’ll get your life back, and with a golden parachute to
of that rather than increasing the chances of that.” Also, a leading House Republican accused the White
House today of a “$20 billion shakedown” of oil giant BP. Rep. Joe Barton made the assertion at the outset of a House hearing where BP’s chief executive officer, Tony Hayward, was appearing for the first time before Congress. Facing Hayward at the witness table, the Texas Republican congressman said, “I’m ashamed of what happened in the White House” on Wednesday. Barton was referring to the agreement that President Barack Obama announced with BP for establishment of a $20 billion relief fund. Rep. Ed Markey sharply disagreed with Barton. Markey said the compensation fund was “not a slush fund, not a shakedown. ... It was the government of the United States working to protect the most vulnerable citizens that we have in our coun-

Hanson mystifies Rays in win The Associated Press
World Cup fan of the day U.S. team battles Slovenia on Friday/B3
ATLANTA — Tommy Hanson loves having complete control over his whole repertoire. Fastball, slider, curveball, changeup. Hanson wasn’t afraid to throw any of them Wednesday. “I know if I’m commanding my pitches and I’ve got my stuff working, I can go out and compete with anybody,” he said. “These are the days when it’s fun to pitch.” Hanson pitched seven scoreless innings, Troy Glaus drove in two runs and the
mlb Atlanta Braves returned to their winning ways at home with a 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Atlanta has won 10 of its last 11 at Turner Field and is 20-7 overall at home this season. One night after stranding 14 runners in a 10-4 loss to the Rays, the Braves took a 3-0 lead with two outs in the third on Brian McCann’s RBI double and Glaus’ two-run single. “Good night with the lumber,” Atlanta manager
Bobby Cox said. Facing the Rays for the first time, Hanson (7-3) made the early edge stand up. He allowed three hits and struck out six, improving to 4-0 with a 2.03 ERA over his last five starts. After Hanson left for a pinch-hitter, Peter Moylan got the first two outs of the eighth, and rookie Jonny Venters recorded the game’s last four outs despite Ben Zobrist’s broken-bat RBI single and Dioner Navarro’s pinch-hit RBI double in the ninth.

Favre’s doctor said surgery went well
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Brett Favre’s doctor indicated Wednesday that his recent ankle surgery went well and the quarterback has a few more weeks of rehabilitation before he’ll decide if he’ll return for a 20th NFL season. Orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews said there were no problems with last month’s arthroscopic procedure, which removed scar tissue and bone spurs from Favre’s left ankle. “It went fine,” Andrews said after speaking at the Charlotte Touchdown Club luncheon. “He’s rehabbing and trying to decide what he’s going to do. I talked to him yesterday.” Favre turns 41 in October. He has a contract with Minnesota that will pay him $13 million if he plays in the 2010 season. He has given few hints in the offseason, other than the surgery, which has led many in the Vikings organization to predict that he’ll be back. “We’ve got a few more weeks of rehabbing,” Andrews said. “I think he hasn’t decided yet what he wants to do.” Favre threw 33 touchdown passes and only seven interceptions in guiding the Vikings to a 12-4 record and NFC North title. The season ended on a sour note, however, when Favre threw a forced interception late in the fourth quarter of Minnesota’s loss to New Orleans in the NFC championship game.

Saints get Super Bowl rings By Brett Martel The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — Apparently, a diamond encrusted fleur-de-lis is a Saints player’s best friend. “It’s pretty incredible,” Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees said of his new championship ring, which team members received at a ceremony on Wednesday night. “In fact, I think it’s absolutely perfect because nothing was left out on that ring as far as the symbols of our season.” The yellow-gold ring features a fleur-de-lis — the symbol of both the team and New Orleans — made up of several dozen diamonds on top. There are 44 diamonds around the edges to commemorate the 44th Super Bowl, which New Orleans won over Indianapolis in Miami on Feb. 7. And there are also 16 diamonds — eight on each side of the fleur-de-lis — to symbolize the number of games the Saints won last season. On one side of the ring is a carved image of the triplespired St. Louis Cathedral, the Louisiana Superdome, a scene from the Saints’ championship parade and the first few musical notes of “When the Saints Go Marching In.” On the other side is the final score of the title game (Saints 31, Colts 17) along with the date and location of the first Super Bowl in which the now 44-year-old franchise played. On the underside of the ring are inscriptions of team mottos from last season: Be Special; Finish Strong; and Smell Greatness. According to NOLA.com, the NFL pays $5,000 per

nfl ring while the rest of the cost is absorbed by Tiffany. The total cost of the rings are undisclosed. “We found a way to become world champions. It was never about one person. It was never even just about our team,” Brees said. “It was about a city and a community and the way we were all able to band together. And this (ring) is, I guess, the fruit of
our labor. We’ll always have those memories with us, but the ring is the tangible symbol that says it all.” Players, coaches, executives and other staff entered the historic downtown Roosevelt Hotel on a red carpet while fans cheered and called out play-

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah is poised to become the 12th member of the Pac-10 as the conference quickly pivoted Wednesday to invite the Utes after being turned down by Texas and four other members of the Big 12 two days ago. Utah officials did not immediately say whether the invitation would be accepted, but it would be shocking if the Utes didn’t leave the Mountain West Conference for the Pac-10. Spokeswoman Liz Abel said the athletics department would not comment until today, after the school’s board of trustees meets to discuss the school’s conference affiliation. A news conference was scheduled at the football stadium following the meeting. Utah has been a member of the MWC since the league began in 1999 — and one of its most successful in football and basketball. There had been speculation on Tuesday that Utah would be the next school to be approached by the Pac-10. When asked about the possibility, school president Michael Young told The Associated Press “we wouldn’t anticipate making a move of this magnitude without the concurrence of our board of trustees.”
Vuvuzela horns are annoying part of World Cup The drone echoed over the World Cup soccer pitch and hit the tweeters of the surround sound speakers like a swarm of drunken bees. It sounded like a swarm of angry hornets, an animal moaning in pain or the sound of a nasal printing press. It drilled into the psyche like a diamond bit, causing physical pain and annoyance on a scale not seen since Hanson came out with the sickly sweet ode to nothing known as “Mmmmm-bop.” In “Dumb and Dumber,” Jim Carrey’s character claims he can make the most annoying sound in the world. Sorry, Jim, these horns have got you beat, calf-roped and hog-tied. The noise drowns out
STEVE WILSON cheers. The commentators. Dialogue between coaches and players. Radar and GPS signals. And any coherent thought in your head. It makes Mississippi State’s cacophony of cowbells seem like melodious ear candy in comparison. It’s dorkier than a ruffian wearing an Ain’t Skeered T-shirt with a mullet shining a laser pointer at a college
football game. It’s a flutophone on steroids — Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa-class ’roids. Casual fans watching the excellent World Cup match between the U.S. and England wondered, “What the heck is that racket?” That is the insistent buzz of the vuvuzela, a long plastic horn that erupts with 127 decibels of monotone goodness. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Adminstration, 84 decibels can cause permanent hearing damage. An aircraft carrier flight deck clocks in at 150 decibels. Imagine that, a plastic horn that can compete with carrier ops. It’s the answer to a question no one asked, like the reason why
Taylor Hicks won American Idol a few years back. I guess someone thought Michael McDonald should have a grey-haired clone with really bad dance moves and no career post-Idol. Loss of hearing isn’t the only problem with these blasted horns that will likely supply the soundtrack to eternal torment in Hades. According to a recent Associated Press story, the vuvuzela can spread disease as spittle containing influenza and common cold germs can take up residence inside the horn and be sprayed on spectators nearby. Since it’s winter in South Africa, it’s a real health concern.
Oh happy joy. Defenders claim that the horns are a South African tradition and that banning the plastic horns, made in China, of course, would prevent fans from enjoying the true South African footballing experience. If that’s the South African footballing experience, bring ear plugs. And ear muffs. And some ear buds hooked up to an MP3 player playing white noise. It just makes you want to reach for the mute button. •

McNair, whose father was professional football player Steve McNair, had signed with the Golden Eagles. But Oak Grove High School football coach Nevil Barr told the Hattiesburg American that McNair is unlikely to meet NCAA freshman academic eligibility requirements and instead will go to Pearl River Community College.

One game, one championship Celtics and Lakers battle in Game 7 for NBA title glory LOS ANGELES (AP) — Even when Lamar Odom was a kid with limitless imagination growing up on New York’s playground courts, he thinks he might have dismissed tonight’s season finale as a bit too extravagant. When the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the NBA finals, Odom realizes it’s a fantasy come true for any basketball player with the audacity to dream this big. “It’s historic, especially when you talk about these teams and what they stand for, the pride,” the Lakers forward said Wednesday. “This is what you envision when you’re a kid in your backyard. Counting down, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...” Another memorable chapter in the NBA’s best rivalry will end with a coronation at Staples Center, where the defending champion Lakers will try to earn their 16th banner while denying Boston its unprecedented 18th title in the clubs’ second finals meeting in three years. For the fifth time in their 12 finals meetings, Boston and Los Angeles need all seven games to decide it. Each previous time it went to Game 7, the Celtics won — but when the current Lakers and Celtics take the court for the NBA finals’ first Game 7 since 2005 and just its second in the past 16 years, most will try awfully hard not to think about the history and pressure heaped on their shoulders. It’s fine for kids and historians to savor this scenario, but Kobe Bryant knows it’s not a good idea for players to get caught up in it. “It’s got nothing to do with me,” said Bryant, the series’ leading scorer with 29.5 points per game. “(When) I look back, years from now, or even

nba finals On TV 8 p.m. ABC Celtics at Lakers when I was a kid, (if) you’d talk about being in this situation, I’d be really excited. But when I’m in the moment right now, I’ve got to play. I’ve got to focus on that. I can’t focus on the hype about it.” Although Boston has the rivalry’s Game 7 history on its side, the Celtics have plenty stacked against them after an embarrassing 89-67 loss in Game 6 Tuesday night. Most glaringly, Boston won’t have starting center Kendrick Perkins, who sprained multiple ligaments in his right knee in the first quarter. The Celtics’ starting five has never lost a playoff series, but that five must change for

forward Kevin Garnett during the second half of Game 6. Game 7 is tonight at 8 p.m.
Game 7. Although Perkins is a role player next to Boston’s Big Three and point guard Rajon Rondo, the Celtics must hope veteran Rasheed Wallace and youngster Glen Davis can make up for Perkins’ inside defense and rebounding. No visiting team has won an NBA championship in Game 7 since the Washington Bullets did it in 1978, yet the Celtics are a whole lot more worried about the Lakers than the Hollywood crowd. “I just love the pressure,” said Paul Pierce, who leads the Celtics with 18 points per game. “I love the fact that I get to play against the Los Angeles Lakers in a Game 7 on the road. I love the fact that if I don’t win multiple championships that I probably won’t be mentioned amongst the other guys in Celtic history that have done it before. That type of stuff motivates me. That’s what the challenge is for me,
every time I put on this Celtic uniform.” Pierce is usually the only player in this series who embraces its history, yet it’s too soon to say where these finals will fit in the rivalry’s annals. Although the games had been uniformly competitive before the Lakers’ blowout win in Game 6, they haven’t been spectacularly played, with gritty defense trumping offense in most of the major moments. Ray Allen’s historic 3-point shooting barrage in Game 2, the Celtics’ gritty victories in games 4 and 5, the Lakers’ blowout win in Game 6 — all will be dwarfed by what happens in the deciding game. The Celtics have more experience in seventh games than the Lakers over the past three years, playing in two deciding games in 2008 and two more last year.
World Cup On TV 9 a.m. Friday ESPN U.S. vs. Slovenia was amused by the bold assertion of Komac, a Slovenian midfielder. “It’s definitely a premature comment to make,” he said. “I don’t think a U.S. player would make a comment like that.” Slovenia has a population of just over 2 million and is the third-smallest nation ever to play at the World Cup, larger than only Trinidad and Tobago, and Northern Ireland. Howard said Komac’s statement was understandable, given how far Slovenia has come. “That means nothing to us,” Howard said. “We know that they’re probably feeling confident after getting the three points, and rightfully so.” Howard was injured in the first half of Saturday’s game when Emile Heskey’s boot struck him in the ribs below the breastbone, near the arm. Howard was down in pain for several minutes before resuming. He needed an injection of painkiller at halftime.
“Tim’s a fighter, and when he got back up, I was happy and I’m sure everybody else around in America was,” Onyewu said. Howard said he’ll be ready to face Slovenia. “Time is a good healer. I’ve had a few days. It’s just going to be sensitive, but as you know, if you play at the highest level, I think you have to play through injuries,” he said. “It’s sore. I believe in, as I said before, in adrenaline being the great equalizer. You can’t account for that. You get on the field and your mind is focused on the game. It takes away from the pain and listen, we’ve got plenty of pain meds and injections and all that type of stuff, which will help keep my mind off it, as well.” The 31-year-old hasn’t gone for any medical scans. “If the docs and the medical team felt like I needed it, I would certainly do that,” he said. “Not knowing is probably better.” He’s been treated with cold and with steam in an effort to decrease swelling and desensitize the area, but not much can be done for a rib injury. “It’s a really bad kick, and so in the next few days, if I
have to go full stretch, which hopefully I don’t, and end up landing on it too hard, then it might set me back. But we’ve got plenty of padding and plenty of ideas on how to stop that. I won’t be stupid with it, at least I don’t think I will be.” And there’s one treatment that will help him right before the game. “I’m kind of looking forward to those injections,” he said. For all his success as a goalkeeper with the United States and in England with Everton, Howard strangely had no great desire to play the position. He got involved in youth soccer because his mother wanted him involved in baseball, basketball and soccer to get him out of the house, and he was a high school basketball star in New Jersey. “I don’t like being goalie. Even now I don’t,” he said. “I never enjoy playing, even in games. I enjoy the buildup sometimes, and I certainly enjoy afterwards, but it’s way too intense. “I’d like to play midfield, holding midfielder, breaking up plays and passing to the more-talented guys.”
back in their favor. I never argue based on replay. I argue based on what I see. It didn’t just change the inning. It changed the whole game.” Said Blalock: “I did some aggressive baserunning to get our team back in the game.” “My only comment is that the replay showed I was safe. That was a big part of the game,” he said. Unfortunately for Tampa Bay, Hanson stranded run-
ners at second and third on Evan Longoria’s flyout. Atlanta went ahead 4-0 in the sixth on Eric Hinske’s fifth homer. Melky Cabrera and Martin Prado added RBI singles in the eighth for a 6-0 lead. Prado, who went 3-for-5, increased his NL hits lead to 95. “First of all, you’ve got to be patient,” Prado said. “Just hit it somewhere. No secret.”
Braves Continued from Page B1. Rookie Wade Davis (5-7) lost his third straight start. He dropped to 2-6 with a 6.48 ERA over his last eight starts. “That one was tough to swallow,” Davis said. “I felt good. I didn’t make a lot of mistakes.

U.S. players laugh off Slovenian trash talk IRENE, South Africa (AP) — Tim Howard thought about Andrej Komac’s prediction of victory for Slovenia and chuckled. “I think talk is cheap,” the American goalkeeper said Wednesday. “He’s got to stand toe to toe. And they’ve got to stand toe to toe with us for 90 minutes. And if he’s still standing, then I’ll take my hat off to him. But a lot of boxers talk, too, and they’re looking up at the lights. And the next thing they know, they’re trying to figure out how they got there.” All the focus might have been on last Saturday’s World Cup opener against England, but Friday’s game against Slovenia will be more important in determining whether the United States reaches the second round for the first time since 2002. Slovenia leads Group C with three points following a 1-0 win over Algeria, and the U.S. and England are tied for second with one point apiece after drawing 1-1. A win would go a long way toward putting the Americans in the knockout phase, and a defeat would pretty much eliminate them Defender Oguchi Onyewu
lock at home plate for the second out of the sixth inning. With Carl Crawford batting, the ball bounced away from McCann, but the Atlanta catcher threw quickly to Hanson for the tag. Maddon left the dugout to argue with Emmel, but was turned away. “We had a good opportunity, and the call went against us,” Maddon said. “That threw the momentum
METAIRIE, La. — Though Reggie Bush admitted no wrongdoing he did express regret on Wednesday over his involvement in an NCAA probe that resulted in major sanctions for Southern California’s football program. “This thing, regarding USC and the NCAA, is the closest thing to death without dying because I have such a great love and respect for the university,” Bush said. “This has been one the toughest things I’ve had to deal with in my life.” Speaking publicly about the NCAA report for the first time since its release last week, Bush would not address the specific allegations of wrongdoing. Rather, he pledged to support USC however he could in an appeal of the sanctions. “I believe that there’s a lot of untold truth to this matter, there’s a lot of fabricated lies to this matter, but it is what it is and I can’t sit here and cry about it. I can’t sit here and make up excuses,” Bush said. “Ultimately, it’s a responsibility that’s placed on USC and my shoulders. It’s because of me. So all I can do is continue to try to help them and move forward with the situation. “God works in mysterious ways and at the end of the day I think this, too, shall pass and hopefully we can grow stronger from this.” The NCAA report, released June 10, concluded that Bush and his family accepted improper benefits from mar-
nfl keting agents while he was playing for USC. The NCAA ruled that USC would have to vacate victories from late 2004 through the 2005 season, a period that included the Trojans’ national title win over Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl in January 2005. USC also was penalized with a two-year bowl ban and a loss of 30 scholarships over a threeyear period. It is not yet clear whether Bush will lose his 2005 Heisman Trophy. Bush said he’s not worried about what further punishment or embarrassment may await him, but he is concerned about current USC players who may be deprived of scholarships or miss out on postseason play. “Obviously, with the current penalty, it sucks because the kids there now have to deal with that and you never want to be in the position where you’ve affected a kid’s career or the future of a high school player who has a dream to go to USC,” Bush said. “That’s not a good feeling. Obviously, like I said earlier, we’re going to do everything we can with the appeal and we feel strongly about winning the appeal.” The report has no bearing on the 25-year-old Bush’s pro career with the Super Bowl champion Saints. While Bush spoke, his former marketing agent, Mike Ornstein, stood nearby, listening intently. Ornstein, who is now a Saints consultant, said afterward he had “absolutely no comment about any of this.”
Rings Continued from Page B1. returned to New Orleans for the ceremony. Scott Fujita, who left as a free agent for Cleveland, also returned. Deuce McAllister, who was released after the 2008 season but brought back in a ceremonial role just before New Orleans’ first playoff game last January, was there as well. Arriving with McAllister was Saints running back Pierre Thomas, who has skipped a recent minicamp and offseason training sessions over a contract dispute. Even the scene of the ceremony was symbolic. The ornate hotel, where the New England Patriots stayed during their first Super Bowl triumph in 2002, closed after Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005. It reopened after an extensive multi-million-dollar renovation in 2009, the same season the Saints won their first title. Across the street is the still-dormant New Orleans Orpheum Theater, a nearly century-old triple-deck musical hall that once housed the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. The
boarded-up entrance and faded posters from the symphony’s 2004-05 performance schedule were a reminder that not all of New Orleans is back, and more work remains as a new season approaches for the defending champions. “There’s always work to be done, but it’s special because this place opened after Katrina,” linebacker Scott Shanle said. “The Saints came back. People didn’t know what to expect. It’s been four years where we put it back together, but we still know we can do better.” After the private ceremony, Brees and his wife rode off into the French Quarter in a black-and-gold horsedrawn carriage. Several players including Reggie Bush approached the barricades and held out their hands so fans — many wearing Saints jerseys and screaming, “Who Dat!” — could take photos. Coach Sean Payton also mingled with fans. The coach said he always expected he’d have such a ring one day, and now expects to get another.

He was 78. Patrick Michel, the leader of Bazin’s political party, said the former premier died of cancer. Bazin came up short for the presidency twice, most famously a 1990 landslide loss to populist priest Jean-Bertrand Aristide. A coup followed, and the generals who ousted Aristide made Bazin prime minister. He held the position for a year before resigning.

Ford, Flockhart tie knot in New Mexico Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart have tied the knot — in a wedding presided over by New Mexico’s governor. Gov. Bill Richardson confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that the couple, who have been together for several years and got engaged last year, were married at the governor’s mansion in Santa Fe. Ford’s publicist, Ina Treciokas, confirmed the nuptials Wednesday. Richardson presided over the ceremony Tuesday afternoon at the mansion on a hilltop along the northern edge of Santa Fe. Richardson has played host at the mansion to Spanish royalty, Harrison Ford and Calista North Korean diplomats and Flockhart other Hollywood stars, but this marked the first wedding there during his tenure. Richardson isn’t ordained so he had some help from New Mexico Supreme Court Chief Justice Charles Daniels to make Ford and Flockhart’s union official. The governor and his staff were tightlipped about details of the ceremony, saying it was “a private matter.”

The charge arose from a 2007 shooting outside a Waco-area saloon.

Give until it hurts
Gates, Buffett lobby rich for donation pledges SEATTLE (AP) — Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates and billionaire investor Warren Buffett are launching a campaign to get other American billionaires to give at least half their wealth to charity. Buffett, chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., said in a letter introducing the concept that he couldn’t be happier with his decision in 2006 to give 99 percent of his roughly $46 billion fortune to charity. Patty Stonesifer, former CEO of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, said Wednesday that Gates and Buffett have been campaigning for the past year to get others to donate the bulk of their wealth. The friends and philanthropic colleagues are asking people to pledge to donate either during their lifetime or at the time of their death. They estimate their efforts could generate $600 billion dollars in charitable giving. In 2009, American philanthropies received a total of about $300 billion in donations, according to The Chronicle of Philanthropy. The handful of billionaires approached so far have embraced the campaign, said Stonesifer, a close friend of Gates who offered to speak about the effort. Four wealthy couples have already announced their pledges, including Los Angeles philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad, Gerry and Marguerite Lenfest of Philadelphia, John and Ann Doerr of Menlo Park, Calif., and John and Tashia Morgridge of San Jose, Calif. In addition to making a donation commitment, Gates and Buffett are asking billionaires to pledge to give wisely and learn from their peers. They said they were inspired
The associated press
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, left, and billionaire investor Warren Buffett at the by the philanthropic efforts of not just other billionaires but of the people of all financial means and backgrounds who have given generously to make the world a better place. Their philosophical forebears are the Carnegie and Rockefeller families, who donated most of their wealth back to improve society and were the grandparents of modern philanthropy, said Stacy Palmer, editor of The Chronicle of Philanthropy. Ted Turner’s announcement 13 years ago of a $1 billion gift to United Nations programs also was done in part to inspire other big givers, but did not have a noticeable result, Palmer said. “It’s a stretch to see how they’re going to get to the $600 billion figure,” she said,
annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting in Omaha, Neb.
noting that only 17 people on the Forbes list of the 400 wealthiest people in America are also on the Chronicle’s list of the most generous American donors. Many of these people may be giving anonymously or plan to donate when they die, but the bulk of money raised by charities today comes from non-billionaires giving $5, $10 or $50 at a time, Palmer said. Buffett’s plan will eventually split most of his shares of his Omaha, Neb., company between five charitable foundations, with the largest chunk going to the Gates Foundation. He also plans to give Class B Berkshire shares to the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation, which he and his late first wife started, and to the three foundations run by his three children.
Buffett said in 2006 that his other 73,332 Class A shares of Berkshire stock, worth about $8 billion, would also go to philanthropy, but he didn’t specify how those shares would be distributed. Bill and Melinda Gates have made a similar pledge through the establishment of their Seattle-based foundation. Gates and Buffett are asking each individual or couple who makes a pledge to do so publicly, with a letter explaining their decision. “The pledge is a moral commitment to give, not a legal contract. It does not involve pooling money or supporting a particular set of causes or organizations,” they explain in a written statement about the project.
Collins among honorees at Songwriters Hall NEW YORK (AP) — Even though he has written songs that have become etched into pop culture, from “Against All Odds” to “In the Air Tonight,” Phil Collins insists he has no special formula for writing a hit. “It’s all a stroke of luck, it’s a complete accident,” he said in an interview this week. “I’ve never purposely crafted a song to be a hit in my life.” But luck rarely strikes so often. So, today, the Songwriters Hall of Fame will give the former Genesis frontman its highest honor, the Johnny Mercer Award, during ceremonies in New York City. It’s the second major honor this year for the 59-year-old Collins; in March, Genesis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Collins has already been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, but getting this special honor was such a shock, he didn’t quite believe it. When he got the e-mail, he called his manager and asked if he would be presenting the award instead. “That’s something that I never thought I’d be qualified to get; I still don’t think I’m qualified to get,” he said. Collins will join a star-studded cast among the honorees. Taylor Swift is getting the Hal David Starlight Award for emerging songwriters, while the inductees for the hall will include David Foster, Earth,
‘It’s all a stroke of luck, it’s a complete accident. I’ve never purposely crafted a song to be a hit in my life.’ Phil Collins
Wind & Fire, Leonard Cohen, Jesse Stone, Laura Nyro, Jackie DeShannon, Johnny Mandel, Matt Dennis, Bob Marley and Sunny Skylar. The hall will also honor “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” written by Paul Simon, as it celebrates its 40th anniversary. Other special tributes include one for producer Phil Ramone and publisher Keith Mardak. Foster, the Grammy-winning producer who has worked with Michael Jackson, Barbra Streisand and Josh Groban, cited “After the Love Has Gone,” a song he co-wrote for Earth, Wind & Fire, as one of the defining moments of his career. “It was the first Grammy that I had won,” the 60-yearold said. He also noted his collaborations with Peter Cetera on Chicago’s hits and “The Prayer,” which he co-wrote with Carole Bayer Sager. “You know what’s unique about this song is it gets played at weddings and funerals,” he said. Like Collins, Foster said there’s no way to write a hit
song: “It’s impossible ... anyone who says they have the formula is full of (it).” “You write 100 songs to get one good one,” he said. Collins said he didn’t labor over the lyrics for one of his biggest hits, “In the Air
Tonight.” “That song was totally improvised. ... Those words just came out of my mouth at the time I was writing the song. It’s ironic that that’s the song with the biggest story and yet it’s a song with the least story at the source.” Collins hasn’t released an album in years, but he is gearing up for the release of “Going Back” in September. This project will not include his songwriting skills, though; it’s a remake of his favorite boyhood songs from the Motown vaults and other soul songs.

Jealousy justified when wife drinks with ‘the boys’ Dear Abby: My wife and I disagreed with your advice to the woman whose husband was upset about his wife going out for drinks with her male co-workers. (“Pulled in Two in Pennsylvania,” April 2). We have been happily married for many years, and neither she nor I feel comfortable with a female employee going for drinks with mostly males. Drinking can lower inhibitions. Many office affairs begin in similar situations. In addition, no one should be driving home after two or more drinks. Office parties or gettogethers should not be held at bars. Employers can be held responsible for a multitude of things that can happen after these socials. That woman’s husband may be too protective or controlling, but he is not out of line to be upset about the situation. — Bob in Lewisville, Texas Dear Bob: Thank you for your comments. I told “Pulled in Two” that her husband appears to be insecure and can change only if he’s willing to own up to it. However, many readers felt differently — dis-

tinctly differently. Read on: Dear Abby: As someone with a “jealous” husband, I beg to differ. There is a positive definition of jealousy — rightly guarding what belongs to a person. This man may be guarding the relationship he has with his wife. He may sense some danger from her “friendly” and “happily married” co-workers that she doesn’t see. Although they have been married 16 years, it seems his jealousy arose only after she took this job. I speak from experience as someone who didn’t realize I had boundary issues with men. I thought I was just being friendly, but my husband helped me understand where to draw the line. In doing so, I have seen how much he values our relationship and wants to
BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Although there are likely to be a number of disruptions in your domestic affairs, if you keep your wits about you, you should be able to handle them well. If you don’t, it could mean trouble. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — An arrangement you recently established might not have all the potential you thought it did. However, that does not mean it is dead in the water. Use your head and make it work. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Those larger than usual returns you hoped for won’t happen simply by wiggling your nose. If you study the matter carefully and move cautiously forward, there’s a good chance you can realize some gains. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — That social contact you thought would do you some good might not be of much help. Depend on yourself, as always, and you can make things come out okay. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — It’s not that you aren’t willing to work hard for what you get, it’s just that you could use a bit of help from time to time from Lady Luck. Fortunately, you still can reap well from doing excellent work. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It might be easy to be negative about something you’d like to do that circumstances are preventing you from doing, but that won’t help. Keep plugging forward and your hopes will be realized. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Continue to keep your eyes peeled for any unique developments that could have a beneficial effect on your work, because they are out there. However, vigilance is essential. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Do not settle for or expect things to be handed to you on a silver platter. A healthy dose of happiness is waiting from the work you do and the effort you put into things that are important to you. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Don’t expect to benefit from anything another gets, because that may only disappoint you. Even if you manage to wiggle into his/her arrangement, you aren’t likely to get much from it. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Having an open mind and a nonjudgmental attitude will help you a lot in getting along with others. Conversely, being harsh or dictatorial can drive the same people away. Choose wisely. Aries (March 21-April 19) — The larger the game plan, the better you usually like it. However, at this time it behooves you to move slowly, taking only one step at a time. You’re going to need time to readjust each undertaking. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Your rabbit’s foot isn’t thumping out too many good vibes today, so just because you think you are lucky, it doesn’t necessarily make you so.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: Jimmy and I are first cousins and we like each other very much. Our parents (our mothers are strong-willed sisters) don’t want us to date. Do you see anything wrong with cousins dating cousins? Please hurry with your answer. We are starting to get serious with one another. We are both 17. Our mothers think our dating is disgraceful. — Nameless, Willmar, Minn. Nameless: Those who feel that first cousins shouldn’t get involved in a relationship that could lead to marriage believe that the bloodlines are too close and it could be a problem if children are born. But in fact, this hasn’t happened except on very rare occasions. However, since your parents are against dating one another, then honor their wishes. If you don’t, you both will face constant turmoil. It’s hard to go against the wishes of a pair of strongwilled sisters. If, indeed, you both want to get married, then wait until you both have graduated from high school and are at least 18 years of age before you make such a decision. Dr. Wallace: This fall, our high school will be giving students rewards for outstanding grades, citizenship, attendance and student activities. Some of the rewards will be special cards with discounts to local businesses. Since you are a former principal, I’d like to hear what you think. — Isabella, Boston. Isabella: The decision to reward outstanding students is a good one, but giving rewards to be used at local businesses is debatable. My first thought is that the businesses will, for a small discount, receive a lot of publicity and future customers. I think the businesses are getting the better deal. Contact me after the program has been going for a month or two and tell me how the students are reacting to it. Is the school a better place because of this program? • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.
protect it. I am a college graduate and have worked in my profession more than 25 years. I’m not a throwback to the days of male domination. I appreciate my husband’s concern and wisdom. “Pulled” needs to find a way to put her marriage ahead of having fun with her co-workers. Jobs come and go; a great marriage can last a lifetime. — Jo Ann in Georgia Dear Abby: Every company I have ever worked for invited employee spouses to attend almost all after-work social events. Only rarely, once or twice a year, may they have had an employee-only function. I suspect “Pulled in Two” enjoys the extra attention she is getting from her male coworkers. Otherwise, I bet she could invite her husband. — Been There in Aztec, N.M. Dear Abby: It does seem that the husband is insecure, but there may be another explanation. Some of the most jealous spouses I have witnessed were the ones who caroused the most. Obviously, since they cannot be trusted, they proj-
ect that unwarranted lack of trust onto their mate. — Ilene in Corpus Christi Dear Abby: Any time social drinking is a part of a “work” event, the opportunity for inappropriate behavior presents itself. Many marriages have been ruined because of a “mistake” or “I didn’t mean it to happen — it was the alcohol.” If “Pulled” wants to go out drinking with male associates rather than go home to her husband, she is taking the road that leads away from a strong marriage. I faced that crossroad many times throughout my life and have never once regretted telling the ladies I couldn’t join them because I already had a commitment at home. The result has been 30 years of wedded bliss with no “mistakes.” — John in the Sunshine State

Bunions might require reader to have surgery Dear Dr. Gott: I have had a bunion on my right foot for a long time. It is very painful. My foot doctor has cut the side of my shoe off so the bunion can extend out. This is the only pair of shoes I can wear. I may have to have surgery, but some of my friends have told me the bunion will probably grow back. Do you know of any ointment that I can put on it? Or what else would you suggest I do? Dear Reader: A bunion is a bony protrusion on the joint at the base of either big toe. There are a number of reasons for them to form, the most common of which are poorly fitting shoes, congenital deformities, foot injury and arthritis. Symptoms include the obvious bulge of the bunion, intermittent or constant pain when wearing footwear, swelling and skin thickening at the base of the great toe. The toenails may grow into the sides of the nail bed, and some bones might bend permanently at the joint. Treatment commonly begins with a conservative approach, such as wearing shoe inserts, using appropriate padding, taking over-the-counter pain relievers and wearing betterfitting shoes. As your physician apparently pointed out and took measures to correct, cutting the shoe at the site of the bunion is yet another means of accommodation; however, if you live in a cold climate, this could certainly present its own set of difficulties during the winter. When conservative measures fail to be effective, surgery might be appropriate. A podiatrist has several options, depending on the severity of the deformity. In some instances, a patient will be able to walk as soon as the procedure is completed. In other cases, it may take two months or longer before complete recovery occurs. Recurrence occurs post-surgery if a patient continues to wear illfitting shoes. Thus, appropriate footwear is vital. This may be what your friends refer to when they indicate a bunion can grow back. I recommend you make another appointment with your podiatrist to determine what might be best for you, based on your age and possible medical conditions. Dear Dr. Gott: I am a 70-yearold female who began experiencing restless legs at age 20. I understand you have discussed using hawthorn berries for control and would like to know more about this alternative treatment. Thank you for your help. Dear Reader: Hawthorn berries contain antioxidant properties and improve blood flow to the heart. Readers have also indicated the supplement has helped with the muscle twitches

and tremors associated with restless-legs syndrome, Parkinson’s and hypertension. Check with your primary-care physician before using hawthorn berry, because some herbals can cause unwanted side effects if taken with other drugs.
