Bruce King, The Plumber, digs a trench to reroute the sewage line from a home at 2424 Oak St. this morning.

New sewer line frees family By John Surratt Today is Lydia Myers’ Independence Day. Myers, 46, and her son, Davie, 10, live in a house on Oak Street that she inherited from her mother. For almost six years, they have been plagued by a sewage problem caused by a blocked sewer line on their property

that has forced raw sewage to back up into their toilets and tubs every time a toilet is flushed. The blame goes to a pecan tree root that broke through the terra cotta sewer pipe on her property and prevented sewage from reaching the city’s line. This morning, Vicksburg plumber Bruce King began connecting a new sewer

line from Myers’ home that bypasses the blockage and connects with the city service line just outside her front fence. The work and materials are being financed by Service Over Self, a church-based community service youth group that hired King to make the repairs to eliminate See Sewer, Page A7.

4 killed, 7 hospitalized when church van strikes culvert in West Carroll Parish OAK GROVE, La. — Four people were killed, including two children, and seven were hospitalized after a church van veered off a northeast Louisiana highway and struck a culvert. Trooper Mark Dennis said today that a 4-year-old and a 12-year-old were among those killed in the Wednesday night accident on Louisiana 587 in West Carroll Parish. Portia Thornton, 53, Kaitlyn Thornton, 19, Brittany Thornton, 12, and 4-year-old Emma Adams were all pronounced dead at the scene by the West Carroll Parish Coroner’s Office. The van belonged to New Zion Baptist Church, which is about eight miles outside Oak Grove, according to West Carroll Parish Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Kenneth Green. Dennis said the van’s driver, 30-year-old Joey W. McKan of Oak Grove, was one of two people hospitalized with “life threatening” injuries and was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Monroe. Jake Thornton, 20, Aaron Coats, 21, two 16-year-olds, and another male passenger whose age has not been determined were transported to hospitals from Monroe to Jackson, Miss.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS federally funded Mississippi Department of Employment Security will lay off 40 employees by the end of July in response to budget reductions. MDES Executive Director Les Range said however, that those employees are eligible to apply for 30 vacant positions at the agency. He said MDES has already laid off 34 part-time workers, whose jobs were funded with one-time grant money. Range said MDES is losing $6 million in federal funding. He says that includes federal stimulus money and postHurricane Katrina recovery funds. Range said no MDES state offices will close. Range said 10 jobs will be cut from the state office in Jackson. The rest of the offices around the state will see one to three positions eliminated.

Motorist who hit cyclist won’t face charges TUPELO, Miss. — District Attorney Forrest Allgood said the motorist who hit and severely injured Starkville cyclist Jan Morgan on May 22 will not face felony charges. Allgood said the motorist violated no state felony laws when she hit Morgan, as she trained for a triathlon on an expanse of Mississippi 50 near Pheba in Clay County. Morgan remains hospitalized in Tupelo. Allgood said he has seen the Highway Patrol accident report and there was no felony because the motorist didn’t leave the scene, wasn’t impaired, and didn’t intentionally or negligently hit Morgan. Allgood said state law that requires motorists to provide a 3-foot berth while passing cyclists on the road is a misdemeanor. He said no charges have been filed in the incident.

Nagin book claims conspiracy after Katrina NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A memoir by former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin about the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina includes an account of about 20 armed private security guards showing up uninvited at the city’s disaster headquarters and raises an allegation that they were there to put listening devices in his room — for reasons still unknown. At a news conference Wednesday to release “Katrina’s Secrets: Storms after the Storm,” Nagin described the

men who appeared at the command center as “Blackwater type” guards who said they were there to protect him. They arrived the day after Katrina. “Who sent them and why did they come and why were they so concerned about taking control and so-called protecting me?” Nagin said at the news conference. Nagin said the guards left at his insistence. He said some were discovered by his staff on the roof of the high-rise hotel in what he believes was an

attempt to install communications equipment. His own technology experts were there, he added. Exactly why Nagin thought the men wanted to bug his room was unclear. In the book, he said the guards’ visit may have had something to do with an angry telephone exchange he’d had earlier with a local business leader from an upper class New Orleans neighborhood. The man wanted Nagin to allow private security forces into the city to supplement

police. Nagin said he refused the request because he did not think having multiple security agencies “playing GI Joe” was a good idea. Nagin also acknowledged having unfounded worries that inoculations he received after boarding the USS Iwo Jima to dine with then-President George W. Bush in the days after the storm might have been an attempt on his life following a highly publicized radio talk show rant about the slow recovery effort.

Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin waves a copy of his book, “Katrina’s Secrets,” as he heads to a news conference Wednesday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Investment firm Morgan Keegan & Co. is paying $200 million to settle civil fraud charges that it overstated the value of mortgage investments just as the housing market was collapsing in 2007 and lured buyers of its funds with false sales materials. Morgan Keegan’s parent company, Regions Financial Corp., also announced Wednesday that it hired investment bank Goldman Sachs & Co. to explore “potential strategic alternatives” for Morgan Keegan. The alternatives could include a sale of the firm or divisions of it. Federal and state regulators said the actions of Morgan Keegan, based in Memphis, Tenn., caused investors in five funds to lose an estimated $1.5 billion. Morgan Keegan failed to use “reasonable” procedures to calculate the value of securities in the funds backed by high-risk mortgages, the regulators said. The firm misrepresented the value of the funds and the risk involved to entice people to invest, they said. Half of the money will go toward compensating investors.

Stop bypassing Congress A bipartisan group of 10 U.S. members of Congress launched a federal lawsuit recently against President Barack Obama’s and NATO’s war on Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi. The president originally promised that the war would last “days, not weeks.” The members of Congress cited the 1973 War Powers Resolution, which mandates that a president must get congressional approval within 60 days of starting a war. This war started March 19; the deadline was May 20. At one time, presidents usually followed the Constitution, which stipulates that only Congress can declare war. The American founders wanted to avoid just such a situation in which a president starts a war on a whim, with limited reason or little planning, in this case apparently goaded by French President Nicolas Sarkozy. The last declared war was World War II. Since then the country has been involved in numerous wars — the largest being in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan — without declarations of war. The War Powers Resolution was enacted in 1973 as the Vietnam War was being wound down after

eight years in which 58,000 Americans and about 3 million Vietnamese were killed, and great social upheaval shook America. The undeclared Korean War (1950-53) also was on Congress members’ minds. “The War Powers Resolution has been from 1973 a parchment barrier to presidential war,” Gene Healy told us; he’s a vice president at the Cato Institute and author of the book “The Cult of the Presidency: America’s Dangerous Devotion to Executive Power.” He added that, since 1973, America has been in about 100 wars, conflicts and incursions, but “no president has been restrained” by the law. He said that, following President Bill Clinton’s bombing of Serbia in 1999, Obama is the second Democratic president in a row to pass the 60-day limit without getting authorization for war from Congress. Ironically, both presidents at one time taught constitutional law. What’s different with the Libya war, Healy said, is that the public has soured on it quickly. A Rasmussen poll released June 13 showed that 26 percent of Americans approved of it. He also

pointed out that some constitutional scholars believe that the War Powers Resolution “has done more harm than good” by diverting people’s attention from the clear constitutional language that only Congress can “declare war.” In any case, in any war, conflict or “kinetic military action,” Healy said, Congress still has the ultimate “power of the purse strings.” It can simply cut off funding. That’s what Congress did at the end of the Vietnam War and after the “Black Hawk Down” incident in Somalia in 1993. Congress should use every means at its disposal to end a war that even Defense Secretary Robert Gates said involves no U.S. national interest, and which reportedly is costing $100 million a day at a time when the federal budget deficit is more than $1.5 trillion a year. We urge Orange County’s six members of Congress to join the War Powers Resolution lawsuit seeking to end the war. And Congress should vote to cancel funding for this unnecessary and foolish “kinetic military action.”

More illegal immigration legislation almost certain in Mississippi STARKVILLE — A Georgia federal judge heard arguments this week over whether Georgia’s new Arizona-style immigration law should stand or fall. The judge heard arguments on both the constitutionality and the practicality of enforcing the law. The law closely mirrors Mississippi’s 2011 Senate Bill 2179 — which like the Georgia law would have required county and municipal law enforcement officers to investigate the immigration status of certain suspects and to arrest and jail illegal immigrants. The bill failed in Mississippi when House and Senate negotiators could not agree on the law. Those disagreements were heightened when the Mississippi Municipal League raised legitimate concerns that the bill was an “unfunded mandate” from the Legislature that would increase costs on county and municipal governments and could raise taxes. The Mississippi bill required housing illegal immigrants in



With almost 9.5 million Hispanic residents comprising nearly 38 percent of the state’s population, the outcome of this law in Texas will be closely watched nationally.

county jails and transporting them to the nearest U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Louisiana. But the bill provided only $20 a day for local governments to pay the costs of incarceration and no funds for transportation, medical expense and a host of other potential costs. Texas state legislators are voting this week on similar legislation. With almost 9.5 million Hispanic residents comprising nearly 38 percent of the state’s population, the outcome of this law in Texas will be closely watched nationally. If adopted, Texans would join citi-

zens in Arizona, Utah, Georgia, Indiana, Alabama and South Carolina as states that have adopted broadly scaled state laws addressing the enforcement of federal immigration laws. Clearly, immigration is not a problem in Mississippi of the size and scope that it is in Texas and Arizona. The 2006 Mississippi immigration study from former state auditor and current Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant found that while illegal immigrants indeed paid $44.2 million in taxes, they cost state taxpayers $69.3 million annually for health care, education and

prison costs — accounting for what Bryant said was a net loss to state taxpayers of some $25 million per year. Bryant’s prohibitive lead in the Republican gubernatorial primary — and in the overall 2011 gubernatorial campaign — has no small foundation in his longstanding “get tough” stance on immigration — an issue that resonates with both Tea Party conservatives and establishment Republicans alike. But the national pro-immigration group, the Immigration Policy Center, conducted their own study and offered a different analysis. The IPC study found that “unauthorized” immigrants produce $583 million in state economic activity — including 4,680 jobs and pay $44.2 million in taxes. The IPC report offers the following claims and findings: Immigrants and their children are growing shares of Mississippi’s population. The foreign-born share of Mississippi’s population rose from 0.8 percent in 1990, to

1.4 percent in 2000, to 2.1 percent in 2008, according to the Census. Mississippi was home to 60,555 immigrants in 2008. And 30.4 percent of immigrants (or 18,419 people) in Mississippi were naturalized U.S. citizens in 2008 — meaning that they are eligible to vote. And after the City of Jackson’s recent “sanctuary city” stance, look for the 2012 legislative session to certainly import this legislation from Texas — a measure targeting “sanctuary cities” by expanding the federal Secure Communities program and requiring that proof of citizenship be shown when applying for a driver’s license. Bottom line, more anti-illegal immigration legislation is almost certain to hit Mississippi’s legislative hopper next year. • Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist. Contact him at

smart money Q: Eleven years ago, my stockbroker talked me into purchasing a tax-sheltered annuity. The money was rolled over from a tax-sheltered mutual fund. This annuity was “guaranteed” to give me 5 percent per year in interest. It did yield the 5 percent for several years. Then I noticed a decrease and asked him why this happened. It took him several days to talk to his company and then report back to me. In his efforts to shield my growth from an economic downturn, he had moved my money within the fund to an account that would cause the 5-percent guarantee to be negated. BRUCE He then said that this was his fault because he did not thoroughly understand the “product.” This admission by him happened about four years ago. Do I have any recourse? I did



move the money to a different annuity and a different broker since I did not want to be stung again. This broker had been fired for similar behavior from a previous company. — Dennis, via e-mail A: Unfortunately, time can be your enemy. Do you presently have any recourse? The answer would very likely be different if you had decided to ask this question four years ago. Further, you mentioned he was discharged from a previous company. That information can be proved to work in your favor, but he acted completely irresponsibly and obviously didn’t understand what he was selling. Many people selling annuities do not, and as a consequence you were burned. You didn’t mention the numbers involved, but unless they are very substantial, this is a loss you are stuck with. The lesson here is: If you have a problem, act immediately. Never sit on it. Time is never going to be on your side.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional Democrats are leading the criticism of President Barack Obama’s troop withdrawal plan from Afghanistan, arguing that his timeline for bringing 33,000 U.S. troops home by next summer isn’t fast enough. An initial drawdown of 10,000 troops is expected to take place in two phases, with 5,000 troops coming home this summer and 5,000 more by the end of the year. An additional 20,000-plus are to follow by September 2012. Democrats said that wasn’t adequate. “It has been the hope of many in Congress and across the country that the full drawdown of U.S. forces would

Obama ordered more than 30,000 ‘surge’ forces to Afghanistan in 2009 in order to rescue a flailing effort, and promised to start bringing them home in July of this year. In his speech Wednesday night, he declared: ‘The tide of war is receding.’ happen sooner than the president laid out — and we will continue to press for a better outcome,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., leading a chorus of disgruntled Democrats who took the president to task, albeit politely. From across the aisle, the Republican response to Obama’s timeline for with-

Ruthless Boston mob boss nabbed by FBI in California SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger was captured near Los Angeles 16 years after his run from the law sparked an international manhunt and served as a major embarrassment to the FBI as their onetime informant eluded authorities. The FBI finally caught the 81-year-old Bulger at a residence in Santa Monica along with his longtime girlfriend Catherine Greig on Wednesday, just days after the government launched a publicity campaign to locate the fugitive mobster, said Steven Martinez, FBI’s assistant director in charge in Los Angeles. The arrest was based on a tip from the campaign, he said. Bulger, who was an inspiration for the 2006 Martin Scorsese film, “The Departed,” is

wanted for his alleged role in 19 murders. One victim was shot between the eyes in a parking lot at his country James “Whitey” club in OklaBulger homa. Another was gunned down in broad daylight on a South Boston street to prevent him from talking about the killing in Oklahoma. Others were taken out for running afoul of Bulger’s gambling enterprises. “He left a trail of bodies,” said Tom Duffy, a retired state police major who was one of the lead investigators in the criminal case against Bulger. “You did not double-cross him. If you did, you were dead.”

drawing tens of thousands of troops was measured. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, warned Obama not to sacrifice the gains the U.S. has made in Afghanistan, while Arizona Sen. John McCain said the drawdown was too rash. “This is not the ‘modest’ withdrawal that I and others had hoped for and advocated,”

McCain said in a statement following Obama’s prime-time address to the nation Wednesday night. “It seems the president is trying to find a political solution with a military component to it, when it needs to be the other way around,” Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said. Obama ordered more than 30,000 “surge” forces to Afghanistan in 2009 in order to rescue a flailing effort, and promised to start bringing them home in July of this year. In his speech Wednesday night, he declared: “The tide of war is receding.”

King said Bob Moss, construction coordinator for Service Over Self, approached him about the project. “I’m going to go in and dig a trench and lay a sewer line,” he said. Myers, unemployed for three years, said she “feels good to know we’re going to get the problem fixed.” She lost her job as a robot welder operator for Yorozu

Automotive Mississippi when the plant closed in 2008, and has not found work. The lack of money provided a roadblock to getting repairs. “The problem began after Hurricane Katrina (in 2005) and got worse,” Myers said. Eventually, she said, sewage began leaking through the sewer vent pipe and puddling on the ground under the rear of the house. “When it is still (no wind),

you can smell it,” she said. “My neighbor called me and said he saw sewage coming out of the vent.” When Service Over Self came to Myers’ house last year to do work, Moss saw the problem. “We hired a plumber then to work on the problem,” he said. “We thought he had repaired it, but it came back.” He said the organization

hired a sewer cleanout service to clean the line, but the relief was temporary. “Several months later, we sent them out again, but it didn’t solve the problem,” he said. Moss said the group planned to return to Myers’ home to do more work this year, “and we decided we were going to take care of the problem.” Once the new line is con-

nected to the city system, Moss said, “We can check the rest of her sewer lines and her fixtures to make sure there’s no other problems. We’ll also replace the vent pipe, which is damaged.” “I tell you, I’m blessed,” Myers said. “I’m overwhelmed. Everybody has been so helpful.”

and last month, due to a drop-off of 11,100 jobs in government, state economist Darrin Webb said. The state shed 3,100 jobs during May, mainly in government. The gaming-heavy leisure and hospitality sector recorded

the highest monthly gain. Nationally, unemployment was 8.7 percent in May, unchanged from April. Seasonally adjusted, the rate went from 9.0 percent in April, to 9.1 percent in May. Rankin County posted the

state’s lowest unemployment in May, down two-tenths to 6.1 percent. Tunica’s 31.1 percent was the state’s highest, followed by Claiborne County’s 17.6 percent, up by 2.3 percent. Sharkey County’s rate was up to 10.7 percent

for the month, up from 9.8 percent in April.

Study: Chips bigger diet demon than soda, sweets LOS ANGELES (AP) — Blame the potato chip. It’s the biggest demon behind that pound-a-year weight creep that plagues many of us, a major diet study found. Bigger than soda, candy and ice cream. And the reason is partly that old advertising cliche: You can’t eat just one. “They’re very tasty and they have a very good texture. People generally don’t take one or two chips. They have a whole bag,” said obesity expert Dr. F. Xavier Pi-Sunyer of the St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York. What we eat and how much of it we consume has far more impact than exercise and most other habits do on long-term weight gain, according to the

The associated press

A customer grabs a bag of potato chips. study by Harvard University scientists. It’s the most comprehensive look yet at the effect of individual foods and lifestyle choices like sleep time and quitting smoking. Weight problems are epi-

demic. Two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese. Childhood obesity has tripled in the past three decades. Pounds often are packed on gradually over decades, and many people

the day. When you look at our test scores in reading, they’re pretty low. That’s why this is so important.” The district’s nearly 9,000 students will all be required to read in a reading block that contains 110 minutes of literacy instruction. The MCT2 scores of thirdgraders from the 2009-10 school year showed 77 percent scored basic or above in language arts, which is a point down from the previous year and about eight lower than the state average at 85 percent. The average of fourth-, fifthand sixth-graders on language arts is 84 percent, just about the same as for the previous year. At the high school level, 60 percent of students passed the English subject area of the test, which is about 8 points higher than the previous year. The percentage is eight points lower than the

state average for the same year. “Literacy can be taught in social studies, in science, in math and this is going to be integrated into the programs,” said Swinford, who was hired as superintendent last year on a two-year contract to improve the school district’s “At Risk of Failing” status. “It’s going to be fully integrated so that the kids are reading and comprehending what they read. We have to address the problem where the problem is — our kids can’t read. That’s why they can’t do tests. If we teach them how to read, they stand a better chance.” The comprehensive reading block for elementary students will consist of 50 minutes of interactive reading aloud and shared reading, 40 minutes of guided and independent reading and 20 minutes of awareness/phonics,

word study and spelling and vocabulary. The reading block will be done as whole classes and as small groups. At the secondary level, students will be required to participate in whole-class and small-group readings. While the school district is prescribing the reading block, Swinford said, individual schools and teachers will be able to choose their own books. The reading block’s integration into the curriculum will be in part due to Swinford’s strictly enforcing in the new year the Mississippi Department of Education’s policy of requiring elementary school students to be in school from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily. Planning of bus transportation and breakfast service will determine the exact start and end times. A letter outlining the school hours will be sent home to parents in July,

Most of their families and entourage will arrive on Saturday and stay through the following Saturday, which is the final night of the pageant, said David Blackledge, chairman of the Miss Mississippi Corporation and executive director of the pageant. “That’s over eight days they are here,” he said. “I expect about 2,100 people. That’s normally our capacity crowd at the (Vicksburg) Convention Center.” The economic impact on the local businesses during that week has been recorded in previous years to be well over $1 million, said Blackledge, who is employed as the vice president of River-

Hills Bank. Families of each contestant, 43 of whom are from out of town, will shop, eat at area restaurants and visit attractions while here, he said. Lynn Foley, director of sales for Southern Hospitality Services, is expecting to sell out of rooms at her four properties during the pageant’s final two nights, but expects strong bookings throughout the week. “We’ll be running strong during the week leading up to Friday and Saturday,” she said. “We’ll see parents, friends, grandparents, aunts, uncles of the contestants.” The four properties include 315 rooms from Courtyard by the Marriott, Holiday Inn Express, Comfort Suites and Econo Lodge, and each sold out of rooms during the final two nights of the 2010

pageant. The pageant, in its 54th year in Vicksburg, will begin June 29 and run through July 2 at Vicksburg Convention Center. Pageant attendees were offered through Miss Mississippi Corporation discounts at participating hotels including Foley’s properties. All contestants will be housed at the La Quinta Inn & Suites on South Frontage Road as they were the last year. Contestants were housed at the former All Saints’ Episcopal School campus on Confederate Avenue before it closed in 2006. Horizon Casino, now operating as Grand Station Casino, also has hosted the pageant contenders.


struggle to limit weight gain without realizing what’s causing it. The new study finds food choices are key. The message: Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts. Cut back on potatoes, red meat, sweets and soda. “There is no magic bullet for weight control,” said one study leader, Dr. Frank Hu. “Diet and exercise are important for preventing weight gain, but diet clearly plays a bigger role.” Doctors analyzed changes in diet and lifestyle habits of 120,877 people from three long-running medical studies. All were health professionals and not obese at the start. Their weight was measured every four years for up to two

decades, and they detailed their diet on questionnaires. On average, participants gained nearly 17 pounds over the 20-year period. For each four-year period, food choices contributed nearly 4 pounds. Exercise, for those who did it, cut less than 2 pounds. Potato chips were the biggest dietary offender. Each daily serving containing 1 ounce (about 15 chips and 160 calories) led to a 1.69-pound uptick over four years. That’s compared to sweets and desserts, which added 0.41 pound. For starchy potatoes other than chips, the gain was 1.28 pounds. Within the spud group, french fries were worse for the waist than boiled, baked or mashed potatoes.

Soda added a pound over four years. Eating more fruits and vegetables and other unprocessed foods led to less weight gain, probably because they are fiber-rich. For each four-year period, these factors had these effects on weight: • An alcoholic drink a day, 0.41-pound increase. • Watching an hour of TV a day, 0.31-pound increase. • Recently quitting smoking, 5-pound increase. People who slept more or less than six to eight hours a night gained more weight. The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health and a foundation. Several researchers reported receiving fees from drug and nutrition companies.

Swinford said. About 200 teachers were introduced to the comprehensive reading block in the twoweek-long professional devel-

opment session, which ended a week ago today. Teachers, who were not required and not paid to attend the sessions but were

given continuing education credits, were given a plan to create the framework in their classrooms.

Commodores knock Tar Heels out of CWS By The Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. — Now comes the really hard part for Vanderbilt. The Commodores extended their first appearance at the College World Series with a 5-1 victory over North Carolina on Wednesday night. Their reward is another game against Southeastern Conference rival Florida, which has beaten them in four of five meetings this season. “We’re not thinking, ‘How the heck can we beat Florida?’ It’s not really in the back of our minds at all,” Connor Harrell said. “We feel we can compete with them. We feel we match up with them well, but we’ll see what

happens on Friday. We’re going to come in confident.” As well they should after their second CWS win over North Carolina. Taylor Hill and Corey Williams combined on fourhitter and Harrell and Curt Casali homered for the Commodores (54-11), who led 5-0 in the third inning. Vanderbilt, which lost 3-1 to Florida on Tuesday, would need to beat the Gators on Friday and again Saturday to reach next week’s best-ofthree finals. Hill (6-1) outdueled Greg Holt (7-2) in a matchup of Washington Nationals draft picks. Hill, taken in the sixth round, allowed a run and four hits in seven innings.

Mayfield signs with Tennessee State Braves Vicksburg star originally signed with Montevallo in November

Progress made in NFL labor talks

NFL owners and players met in the Boston area Wednesday in the latest attempt to work out a new collective bargaining agreement, a person with knowledge of the talks told The Associated Press. Commissioner Roger Goodell and members of his labor committee resumed negotiations with players’ association chief DeMaurice Smith and several players on Wednesday. A day earlier, NFL owners were briefed on recent progress about a new CBA. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the negotiations are confidential. One NFL player told the AP that the NFLPA told him progress is being made “but there’s still maybe two weeks to go” before a settlement is likely. The player also spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak for the players association. The main topic of discussion is the breakdown of total revenues. One person told the AP on Tuesday that the players’ share would approach the 50 percent the NFLPA has said it has received throughout the last decade. But the expense credits — about $1 billion last year — that the league takes off the top would disappear. Also, there would no longer be “designated revenues” from which the players would share, the person said. Instead, the players would share from the entire pie, which they project will grow significantly over the course of the new CBA.

Vicksburg forward Donyeah Mayfield goes up for a shot over Warren Central’s Shegredda Shorter last season. Mayfield signed with Tennessee State on Wednesday.

Her long wait is over. Two-time Vicksburg Post Player of the Year Donyeah Mayfield signed with Tennessee State on Wednesday, just a few months after her initial college destination fell through. Mayfield appeared to be in good shape in November. She signed her letter of intent with the University of Montevallo (Ala.) and her recruiting journey seemed to be over. But trouble loomed on the horizon. The coach who signed Mayfield, former Mississippi College and Delta State assistant coach Mechan Vanderpool, was terminated on Dec. 1, just six games into the season. Mayfield was left with a choice. Take the scholarship at Montevallo and hope the new coach, Cindy Hilbrich, renewed it for a second year or ask for a release from her scholarship. Since she was put on the protected list by Hinds Community College, it was either head to Hinds or find another four-year school. There was even the possibility that she might have to walk on and pay her way for the first year at another school.

Mayfield took a calculated risk. “She was really going out on a limb to ask for a release,” Vicksburg coach Barbara Hartzog said. “A coach will have to honor the scholarship for a year, but they often want to bring in their own players and she might have been looking for somewhere to go again. But with that kind of talent, someone else was bound to come along. We just sent out some more tapes and made some more phone calls.” Mayfield got the release from Montevallo and didn’t lose faith that better days were on the horizon. “I knew, out of this bad situation, something good was going to come out of it,” Mayfield said. She visited Tennesee State’s Nashville campus on June 17 and fell in love with the school. She also liked the role that Tennessee State coach Tracee Wells wants her to fulfill. “I just really liked the campus,” Mayfield said. “She (Wells) wants me to be an allaround player, just like I was in high school. She wants me to hit the boards and rebound like I’ve done here.” Mayfield averaged a doubledouble this season, with 15.8 points and 12 rebounds per game.

broom Blue Jays By The Associated Press ATLANTA — Brandon Beachy was well rested. It showed. Returning from the disabled list with a flourish, Beachy had a career-high 11 strikeouts in his first start in nearly six weeks, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 5-1 victory that completed a sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday. Dan Uggla and Brian McCann hit two-run homers for the Braves, who wrapped up a homestand with their fourth straight win. “I felt good,” the rookie said. “My arm feels strong and rested.” Beachy (2-1) had been on the disabled list since May 14 with a strained left oblique. After one rehab appearance in the minors, he eclipsed his previous best of nine strikeouts in two other starts. The Blue Jays were completely baffled over Beachy’s six innings, going down swinging on all but one of his Ks — even chasing breaking balls in the dirt. Toronto managed just four hits off the Atlanta starter.

Changing tides often sweep away the good as well Change isn’t always for the better. During a recent trip to the North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, I was stunned to find one of the most scenic hiking trails closed forever. The trail, which ran along the rim of the canyon at Chimney Rock Park, led hikers to the summit of Hickory Falls and was the scene of an exciting chase sequence from the film “The Last of the Mohicans.” The views from the trail into the Lake Lure Valley put postcards to shame. I understand the rationale. The railings on the trail looked as sturdy as the Greek economy and the trail was as wide as a bicycle tire. One false step and you would be stuck in a real life Wile E. Coyote moment, minus an



animated rebirth. But for those who were willing to understand and accept the risks, it is another encroachment on liberty. In our overly litigous society, covering your own backside and negating risk are the buzz words. Not adventure. The College World Series shifted its home from grand old Rosenblatt Stadium, which will be torn down in favor of a parking lot for the Omaha Zoo, to TD Ameri-

trade Park. Like replacing your beloved old clunker with a brand new model, it just isn’t the same. Even with the better sightlines, new screens and amenities, the new park just isn’t the bright, cheery Rosenblatt. Even if Rosenblatt’s legendary pipe organ was moved to the new park, pipe by painstaking pipe. The SEC’s decision at the recent spring meetings to eliminate division play in basketball, while logical in some respects, is going to make it tougher for SEC hoops teams to schedule games. By junking today’s format and increasing the amount of rigorous SEC contests, the perverse benefit will be that SEC teams will be less likely to schedule games with marquee non-

conference opponents. The reason for the change was the weakness in the SEC West Division, which had an RPI lower than Anthony Weiner’s approval rating amongst Republicans. But divisions are cyclical and the East, even with Kentucky a perennial power, won’t always be as stout. Auburn won’t always be an SEC team masquerading as a island of misfit JUCOs and walkons. Arkansas hired Mike Anderson — one of the best coaches in the country — and the fear for teams traveling to Bud-Walton Arena will be back. Ole Miss will get to an NCAA Tournament and a new arena would help matters tremendously, especially on the recruiting front, for coach Andy Kennedy. Mississippi State’s program

won’t be a reality show with enough drama for two Academy Awards next year. MSU coach Rick Stansbury won’t allow it, because he knows he likely wouldn’t survive it. Alabama is a program on the rise and could be on the cusp of an deep NCAA run next season. LSU’s slide to the depths of despair was a product of some big-time misses in recruiting under the previous administration. The Tigers won’t be awful forever. Change for change’s sake isn’t always a secure rationale. Sometimes, the status quo is the best choice. •

Golf Woods to miss next week’s AT&T National ORLANDO, Fla. — Tiger Woods will miss another golf tournament as he recovers from injuries to his left leg, saying Wednesday he will not play in the AT&T National next week outside Philadelphia. “Doctor’s orders,” Woods posted on Twitter. He said he would be at Aronimink to support the tournament, which benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation. Woods said he is “feeling stronger,” but is still not 100 percent. Woods, who has slipped to No. 17 in the world ranking, has not completed a tournament since he tied for fourth at the Masters. He said he hurt his left knee and Achilles hitting a shot on the 17th hole of the third round from an awkward stance in the pine straw. He tried to compete in The Players Championship, but withdrew after nine holes. The next tournament on the list is the British Open, which starts July 14 at Royal St. George’s in England. Woods did not mention whether he planned to play the next major. If he did, that would mean two months without any competition before playing the British Open.

Tennis Williams relies on experience to pull through WIMBLEDON, England — After 15 years of coming to the All England Club, Venus Williams knows what it takes to pull out a tough match on the biggest stage in tennis. Even though she only returned to tournament play last week after a five-month layoff with a hip injury, the 31-year-old Williams summoned all her experience and big-point savvy to rally for a three-set Centre Court victory that kept her in contention for a sixth Wimbledon title. “In terms of feeling age, I definitely feel the experience of it all, and I think that’s huge for me,” Williams said after overcoming 40-year-old Japanese player Kimiko Date-Krumm 6-7 (6), 6-3, 8-6 in nearly three hours on Wednesday to move into the third round. “The experience is very important on the court, because that’s what really gets you to the win besides the skill and everything else. If anything, that’s definitely an advantage.” In a match played with rain pelting the roof over Centre Court, Williams was down 5-1 in the first set before fighting her way back against a gritty opponent who pushed her around the court.

Galliano’s appearance at the one-day trial put him in the public eye for the first time in months. In a conservative look for him, Galliano was dressed in black with a polka dot neckerchief, sporting a pencil mustache and long hair. The 50-year-old designer is charged with “public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity” and could face up to six months in prison and up to $32,175 in fines. The verdict is expected at a later date. French law prohibits public insults toward others because of their origins, race or religion.

Self-help guru convicted in sweat deaths CAMP VERDE, Ariz. (AP) — They came in search of spiritual enlightenment, using the sweat lodge as a way to break through whatever was holding them back in life. James Arthur Ray told his seminar participants that it would be “hellacious” and that they would feel like they were dying, but would do so only metaphorically. But three people did die following the October 2009 ceremony, and on Wednesday, Ray was found guilty of three counts of negligent homicide. He could have been convicted on an option of manslaughter, but the jury of eight men and four women decided on the lesser charge instead. The conviction came quickly — after less than 10 hours of deliberations — following four months of testimony and hundreds of exhibits. Prosecutors asked that Ray be taken into custody immediately, but the judge denied their request. Come see what you can do to attract and feed your hummingbirds this summer.

The Vicksburg Post

Suggestions ease hard times under one roof Dear Abby: With so many families moving in with relatives because of personal struggles in their lives, I thought it might be helpful to offer a few suggestions to help this work for everyone. If you move in with relatives: 1. Do not assume they won’t mind if you store everything you own in their garage. Get rid of it or pay for a storage unit. 2. Help with the housework, even if they say, “Oh, don’t bother.” And keep your space clean and orderly and assist in keeping a shared bathroom tidy. 3. Show you appreciate having a place to stay. Feed



pets, carry out the trash, rake leaves or shovel snow. 4. Do your own laundry. Ask when is the most convenient time to do it. Don’t leave clothes in the washer or dryer, which prevents others from washing their own things. 5. If you are paying something toward your stay, don’t think that precludes your helping in the home.


BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Sidestep making any binding agreements if at all possible. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you need assistance for completing a job, be careful regarding the type of help you solicit. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Much inner turmoil is likely to be generated when you discover your trust in another has been sadly misplaced. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Compromise is the key word for you, especially where domestic disagreements are concerned. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — One of the more critical areas in which you need to be monitored is your tendency to stick your nostrils into situations or problems where you’ve not been invited. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Keep a close eye on your resources and how you handle them. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t let your vanity or ego get in the way of your relationships with others. There are certain facets of your personality that could cause you to blurt out things you don’t mean. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You’ll do yourself a favor if you can face the fact that not everybody will be in accord with your viewpoints or positions. When you can accept this, you can accept others. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — It’s nice to think well of people, but be wary of those whom you know from personal experience have previously exploited your generosity. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Keep a lid on your intensity and try to operate on a more placid wavelength. Once your forcefulness is set into motion, it could be extremely difficult to control. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — The best way to figure out who is your worst enemy is to look in a mirror. What it boils down to is impatience and compulsive behavior that will prove to be selfdefeating. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Operate as independently from others as you possibly can, because, for some unknown reason, your way of doing things and theirs will be diametrically opposed to each other.


Dr. Wallace: I’m 15 and have been baby-sitting for a family for more than two years. They had a little girl, 3, and I was paid $3.50 an hour. I was satisfied with the pay and enjoyed the job. Two months ago, the wife had another baby — a boy. Since then, I have babysat twice and was still paid $3.50 per hour. I don’t think that this is fair because I have a lot more work. I think that I should get $5 per hour. Do you agree? If so, I’m going to ask for more money. — Kim, Boston. Kim: Ask for more money! You have one of the more important jobs in the world — providing for and protecting two precious young lives! • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

6. Work out the food arrangements. Maybe you have a shelf or drawer in the fridge for your food. Prepare your own meals unless everyone agrees to share cooking duties and food budgets. 7. If you don’t have a job, keep looking. Don’t lie around watching TV, sleeping or playing on the computer. 8. Never gossip about the household. You owe it to the family who took you in. 9. Do try to set a departure date. If things change, discuss it. When in doubt, talk it out. To those who are going through this, I wish you luck and better times ahead. — Loving Family Member

Dear Family Member: Your letter is timely because, for various reasons, millions of Americans now live in multifamily and intergenerational households. For some of them, the arrangement will be temporary. For others, it is cultural, practical and will be permanent. Whatever the reasons for cohabiting, the suggestions you submitted are thought-provoking and worth space in my column. Thank you for raising the subject.

Not all meds for lowering cholesterol are statins Dear Dr. Gott: I read your column every day and thank you for your advice. I would like to know if Welchol is a statin drug. Some doctors say yes, some say no. I would also like to know the warnings and more about this product. Dear Reader: Welchol is not a statin drug. It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration several years ago as a new drug for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes and it was found to lower LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol as an adjunct to diet and exercise. It is not appropriate for Type 1 diabetics. Side effects can include weakness, constipation, dyspepsia, muscle aches and pains, nausea, stomach pain, headache and indigestion. Your letter failed to indicate whether you have personally been prescribed the product, if you know someone who has been, or if either party suffers from high cholesterol levels and/or Type 2 diabetes. Your physician may have found a multipurpose drug that works on two problems



at the same time, but by writing to ask for additional information, you bring up a good point. When any medication, even an over-the-counter one, has been prescribed, ask questions. Why is your physician ordering this? What are the side effects? How long will I be on it? How long before I should notice improvement? Do I take it on an empty stomach or with food? In the morning or in the evening? Will it interfere with any herbal supplements I might be on? Never take a drug without being well-informed. That’s part of an office visit — and might be the most important part of the visit.
