Readers of AAA Southern Traveler, an American Automobile Association publication, have named the Vicksburg National Military Park the South’s second-best heritage attraction. The National World War II Museum in New Orleans was voted the best and Frogmore Plantation, a working cotton plantation in Ferriday, La., across the Mississippi River from Natchez, came in third. It’s a “wonderful honor,” said Mike Madell, VNMP superintendent. Nominees were named, and the top three in 20 categories ranging from best B&B to best golf course were tabulated in March.

More than two months after oil from BP’s blown-out seafloor well first reached Louisiana, a bucket’s worth of tar balls that washed onto a Texas beach means the crude has arrived in every Gulf state. Oil is still on the move, but the fleet of skimmers tapped to clean the worsthit areas of the Gulf of Mexico is not. A string of storms has made the water too choppy for the boats to operate for more than a week off Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, even though the gusher continues. The number of tar balls discovered in Texas is tiny compared to what has coated beaches in other Gulf states. Still, it provoked the quick dispatch of cleaning crews and a vow that BP PLC will pay for the trouble. “Any Texas shores impacted by the Deepwater spill will be cleaned up quickly and BP will be picking up the tab,” Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson said in a news release. The oil’s arrival in Texas was predicted Friday by an analysis from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which gave a 40 percent chance of crude reaching the area. “It was just a matter of time that some of the oil would find its way to Texas,” said Hans Graber, a marine physicist at the University of Miami and co-director of the Center for Southeastern Tropical See Oil, Page A7.

Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey pronounced Pearson dead at 7:11 a.m. “I had an autopsy done on her yesterday. It’s pending,” said Huskey, adding he saw no signs of trauma.

Meth lab evidence found at South Frontage motel Evidence of a shake-n-bake methamphetamine lab was found Monday morning in a South Frontage Road motel room by Warren County investigators. Warren County deputies are working with Lamar County because the officials “were working a case that involved methamphetamine that might have been manufactured in the Vicksburg area,” said Sheriff Martin Pace. He said he believes the suspects traveled to Vicksburg to use the motel room and does not think the owners or managers of the business knew about the cook. Officials from both counties are seeking to identify the suspect, Pace said. “We’re confident we will identify suspects and will make an arrest,” said Pace. There was sufficient caustic chemicals to warrant a

L.Q.C. Lamar House in Oxford to get new exhibits OXFORD (AP) — By the end of this year, new exhibits should be in place to tell the life story of one of the town’s most esteemed residents. Malone Design and Fabrication of Decatur, Ga., whose clients include the Hoover Dam visitors center and Disney World, is creating the exhibits for the L.Q.C. Lamar House. Lamar was one of Mississippi’s foremost statesmen. A lawyer and University of Mississippi professor, he served in state and federal posts both before and after the Civil War. He served the Confederacy as a military officer and was appointed as its ambassador to Russia. Lamar was a Supreme Court justice and secretary of the Interior after representing Mississippi in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. He died in 1893. He wrote Mississippi’s Ordinance of Secession and served the Confederacy in numerous roles, and he was included in
L.Q.C. Lamar was one of Mississippi’s foremost statesmen. A lawyer and University of Mississippi professor, he served in state and federal posts both before and after the Civil War. He served the Confederacy as a military officer and was appointed as its ambassador to Russia. John F. Kennedy’s “Profiles in Courage” for his role in reunifying the nation after the Civil War. “The man was very diverse, very complete,” said OxfordLafayette County Heritage Foundation President Bill Russell. “He has the most public service, certainly, of anybody in this state and probably matches anybody in this country.” Several of Lamar’s personal items and some of his family’s furniture have been added to the house, which the Heritage Foundation had restored from its dilapidated state several years ago. While volunteer docents
have furnished details about Lamar’s life and historical significance, the new interpretative exhibits will enable visitors to learn at their own pace about his family, oratory, public life and reconciliation efforts. Each room’s theme — family life, public life, post-war reconciliation and oratory — was researched by a different scholar, including University of Mississippi history professors Harry Owens and David Sansing, Ole Miss Provost Emeritus Gerald Walton and historian Jack Lamar Mayfield, who is a Lamar descendant. “The exhibit components
will carry the story of Lamar within the context of his times,” said Darlene Copp, who is working on the project for the Heritage Foundation. “The focus will be on him and his career, but the context will be the times he lived in.” Some aspects of the exhibit will reflect on such elements as slavery and freedmen and the cotton economy. One panel will be about fighting and the South’s Code of Honor. Not only did Lamar hit a U.S. marshal during a federal trial, but he also was involved in a congressional brawl spawned by the fatigue and frustrations of a late-night session, but which ended with a legislative breakthrough. “We’re trying to design it in a way that will appeal to different audiences from the academics at the university to Civil War buffs to people just looking for something to do while they’re visiting Oxford,” Copp said.

GULFPORT (AP) — A multimillion-dollar scheme to defraud Hancock Bank’s Ocean Springs main branch began when former branch operations manager Margaret Migues worked as a bank teller, later recruiting co-worker Willie Doris Burney to participate in the conspiracy that eventually grew to include two other former employees, Assistant U.S. Attorney Ruth Morgan said. That and other new details about the scheme, which started in the 1980s and ended in July 2009, came out in U.S. District Court on June 10 when Burney, 62, pleaded guilty to embezzlement. The charge carries a sentence of up to 30 years and up to a $1 million fine, though Burney has entered into a plea agreement with the government. “I believe I speak for the other 2,200 Hancock Bank employees in saying that we are pleased with and completely support the federal government’s investigation and prosecution of someone who has betrayed the trust of our customers and our associates,” Hancock Bank attorney Joy Lambert Phillips said. “Hancock Bank was founded on the principles of honor and integrity. Thus, we have worked diligently to ensure that all affected customers have been paid in full, including interest. “We were glad we could be present to hear Doris Burney plead guilty today in federal court to the charges brought against her by the U.S. Attorney’s office.” Migues already has pleaded guilty to embezzlement. Both women are now scheduled for sentencing Aug. 24. Each remains free on a $25,000 unsecured bond. The embezzlement scheme started around 1982 when Migues and Burney started working side-by-side as bank tellers. To continue the scheme once Migues was promoted to branch operations manager at the Ocean Springs main branch, Morgan said, Burney turned down promotions to keep her job as a teller working on the front lines. The two women, along with two unnamed co-conspirators, Morgan said, stole money from the accounts of elderly people they’d befriended. An independent audit showed a total of $2,386,451.84 stolen from customer accounts between 1995 and July 2009. No records exist before 1995 so the amount embezzled from early 1980 to 1995 is unknown. All the victims, a total of 44, were between the ages of 71 and 102. Some of the victims, Morgan said, had died by the time the missing money was discovered and, as a result, their heirs did not receive at the time all the money due those estates. For years, Morgan said, Migues and Burney, along with the other accused co-conspirators, hid what they were doing by changing the mailing address on victims’ bank statements to read “do not mail out” or “route to Ocean Springs main branch,” so victims wouldn’t see their statements.

Thompson, others worry about census undercount â€˜In small town America, everything you do is predicated on federal moneyâ€™ By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press ROLLING FORK â€” In this pocket-sized community along the cotton-field landscaped Mississippi Delta, most folks know the importance of this yearâ€™s census count. â€œThatâ€™s life and death. In small town America, everything you do is predicated on federal money,â€? said Rolling Fork Mayor James Denson, whose townâ€™s population is about 2,400 and is 70 percent black. The Census is conducted once every 10 years and helps determine how millions of federal dollars are spent, and how congressional and state district lines are drawn. For the Delta, one of the poorest regions in the country, federal funding is needed for everything from infrastructure projects to preschool and feeding programs. The 18-county region received nearly $4.8 billion in federal expenditures in 2008. That year, the South Delta School District in Rolling Fork received $1.3 million in federal money used for programs to improve student achievement. The amount was based on a formula that includes
the number of pupils and census poverty estimates, among other factors. As the U.S. Census bureau preRep. Bennie pares to wrap Thompson up its door-todoor count across the country next week, there are some who worry many may have been missed. Denson found it disturbing to learn that Sharkey County, where Rolling Fork is located, is among those lagging in the Census 2010 mail participation rate. Nationally, the rate is 72 percent. Itâ€™s only 49 percent in Sharkey County. Some other Delta counties hover around the 50 percent mark. Issaquena Countyâ€™s rate is 36 percent. Denson said some residents never received a form so he had to give them a tollfree number to call to be surveyed. He said he knows mistakes can happen. In the 2000 census, the neighborhood in which he lived was left out of the count. Census officials have said those missed by mail will be counted during the on-the-
ground enumeration that ends July 10. Back in May, U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., and some two dozen nonproft organizations partnering with the Census Bureau on the 2010 count had called for congressional hearings about their concerns in low-income, minority and immigrant communities, including the Mississippi Delta. They cited the potential to undercount migrant workers along the Texas-Mexican border who had already left their homes for the farming season, and an inadequate number of â€œbilingual and culturally sensitive staffâ€? counting the mostly Vietnamese work force of Mississippiâ€™s seafood industry. Thompson said heâ€™d received complaints in Mississippi about census forms being mailed to the wrong addresses and enumerators being sent outside their own neighborhoods to gather data. The letters Thompson and the groups sent to Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., chairman of a House subcommittee on the Census, didnâ€™t lead to a hearing, but Census Bureau director Robert Groves visited Jackson, Miss., recently to dis-
cuss his agencyâ€™s response. Groves said advertising has been increased and more workers have been sent into areas that needed additional follow-up. Groves has also gone to New Orleans and the Texas Colonias, poor neighborhoods in border counties that are historically undercounted as residents fear being turned over to immigration officials. There, he sought to encourage participation. In Mississippi, some households didnâ€™t receive census forms by mail because they had post office addresses. The forms arenâ€™t sent to the boxes because of the difficulty with verification, Groves said. â€œIf I wanted, I could buy a post office box in Meridian even though I live in Washington,â€? Groves said. But Groves acknowledged thereâ€™s a linguistics issue even though the bureau attempts to hire enumerators who speak the languages of their neighborhoods. â€œIf you have an isolated Vietnamese family who donâ€™t speak English, making sure we get the language skills there is a little harder,â€? Groves said.

World trims outgo; Congress boosts income President Barack Obama went to last week’s Group of 20 summit in Toronto hoping to convince the world’s economic powers to join the United States’ spending spree to boost the still sluggish global economy. By the time he left, he’d been schooled in the dangers of uncontrollable deficits by his peers on the world stage. The European leaders in particular wanted no more of the economics Obama was preaching. They’ve seen the damage done by unchecked deficits, and recognize that trying to keep an economy afloat with government spending is not a sustainable strategy. So instead, they insisted on attacking deficits, agreeing to half their current rate of deficit spending by the year 2013 and stabilize the ratio of debt to Gross Domestic Product by 2016. And Obama signed on to the pledge. But how he intends to get there will determine the success of the strategy in strengthening the United States for the long haul. Most of the G-20 leaders indicated they would reduce the deficit with lower government
spending. Obama, on the other hand, has committed the United States to $1 trillion annual deficits for at least the next decade. Costs of the health care legislation he pushed through earlier this year will be kicking in during the same period the G-20 has set for reducing deficits. The White House has formed a bipartisan commission that is charged with coming up with a deficit reduction plan. But its report is not due until after the November elections, an ominous indicator that higher taxes will outweigh real spending cuts. As a precursor of what to expect, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said that, in the name of deficit control, Congress may not extend the 2001 tax cuts when they expire at the end of the year. That would mean a broad and significant income tax hike on nearly all Americans, and flies in the face of Obama’s oft-repeated promise not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $200,000 a year. But it will be a lot easier for
30 YEARS AGO: 1980
the president to raise taxes than to cut spending, which is now running about one-third higher than revenues. Cutting spending enough to half the $1.4 trillion deficit and substantially cut into the $13 trillion in accumulated national debt would mean rolling back most of the new programs Democrats have put in place over the past year-and-a-half, including the health care legislation. Congress shows no sign of being willing to do that. If the United States chooses taxes over spending cuts while the rest of the world is erasing deficits by making government smaller, it will place America at a competitive disadvantage for investment, rob money that could be used for private sector growth and sharply slow the economy. That’s what higher taxes do. There’s a reason the other G-20 nations rejected Obama’s call for more spending and opted instead for fiscal discipline. They’ve been where he wanted to take them, and they know it’s a hopeless place.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler
Immigration will be topic for Legislature, and campaigns Mississippi is among the states where some lawmakers are hoping to follow in the footsteps of Arizona by passing a tough immigration law. Arizona’s law, which goes into effect July 29, requires police to check the immigration status of anyone they think is in the country illegally. Violators face up to six months in jail and $2,500 in fines, along with federal deportation. Political leaders in numerous other states — from Florida to Nebraska — have indicated they’d like to follow suit. State Rep. Becky Currie, a Republican from Brookhaven, has already drafted a bill for the 2011 Mississippi Legislature. “I took the Arizona bill and changed Arizona to Mississippi,” Currie said. Currie believes some Mississippians are losing out on jobs that are going to undocumented workers because the immigrant labor is cheaper for employers. “If you have somebody that really doesn’t exist, you don’t have to pay them a fair wage. You don’t have to follow workers’ compensation,”
Arizona’s law, which goes into effect July 29, requires police to check the immigration status of anyone they think is in the country illegally.
Currie said. She and Sen. Michael Watson, a Republican from Pascagoula, who has filed immigration bills in the past, believe the effort could be bolstered because of statewide elections next year. Watson also pointed to the increased discussion of Capitol Hill about immigration reform. Last week, President Obama said states shouldn’t be attempting to take immigration reform into their own hands. But Watson said, “When people start paying attention to the issues, I think it helps to hold officials’ feet to the fire.”
Watson said previous bills in the Senate sought to make it illegal to harbor and transport illegal immigrants and prevent them from receiving public benefits. Such legislation has often fared well in the Senate under its Republican leadership, but hit roadblocks in the majority Democrat House. In 2008, Mississippi passed a law that requires public and private employers in the state to use the U.S. Homeland Security E-Verify system to check new workers’ immigration status. Under the law, any company found guilty of employing illegal immi-
grants could lose public contracts for up to three years and could lose the right to do business in Mississippi for one year. House Judiciary B Committee Chairman Ed Blackmon, a Democrat from Canton, said if any “serious” immigration bill makes it to his committee he would hold hearings to explore the need for it. “If there’s any serious push behind it, I want to make sure what we’re looking at is solving a problem. Arizona is on the border of Mexico. We are not on the border,” Blackmon said. Undoubtedly immigration will be among the talking points of political leaders running for office next year. For instance, it’s widely speculated Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant will run for governor. Republican Gov. Haley Barbour cannot seek a third term. Bryant has made immigration a plank in his campaign platforms. In 2006, while Bryant was still state auditor, his office released a report that concluded the state of Mississippi spends $25 million a year on
health care, education and prison costs for illegal immigrants. The report estimated that 49,000 illegal immigrants were in the state. The Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance disputed the report’s findings, but few would argue the state’s immigration population has grown in recent years. Advocates argue that wages paid to undocumented workers are spent locally, thus contributing to the economy. They said many were employed in jobs related to the recovery effort on the coast after Hurricane Katrina, and now, the BP oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. MIRA Executive Director Bill Chandler said his organization and other advocates are mobilizing to fight the immigration legislation. “This is reminiscent of what happened 50 years ago across the South when white lawmakers pandered to racism to further their careers,” Chandler said. •

Pennsylvania widow lives with corpses of husband, twin sister WYALUSING, Pa. (AP) — The 91-year-old widow lived by herself in a tumbledown house on a desolate country road. But she wasn’t alone, not really, not as long as she could visit her husband and twin sister. No matter they were already dead. Jean Stevens simply had their embalmed corpses dug up and stored them at her house — in the case of her late husband, for more than a decade — tending to the remains as best she could until police were finally tipped off last month. Much to her dismay. “Death is very hard for me to take,” Stevens told an interviewer. As state police finish their investigation into a singularly macabre case — no charges have been filed — Stevens wishes she could be reunited with James Stevens, her husband of nearly 60 years who died in 1999, and June Stevens, the twin who died last Octo-
The associated press
Jean Stevens, 91, holds a photograph from the 1940s of herself and her late husband, James, outside her home in Wyalusing, Pa. ber. But their bodies are with the Bradford County coroner now, off-limits to the woman who loved them best. From time to time, stories of exhumed bodies are reported, but
rarely do those involved offer an explanation. Jean Stevens, seeming more grandmother than ghoul, holds little back as she describes what happened outside this small town in northern Pennsylvania’s Endless Mountains. She knows what people must think of her. But she had her reasons, and they are complicated, a bit sad, and in their own peculiar way, sweet. On a highboy in the corner of the dining room rests a handsome, blackand-white portrait of Jean, then a stunner in her early 20s, and James, clad in his Army uniform. It was taken after their 1942 marriage but before his service in World War II, in which he fought in the Battle of the Bulge. After the war, James worked at a General Electric Corp. plant in Liverpool, N.Y., then as an auto mechanic. He succumbed to Parkinson’s disease on May 21, 1999. Next to that photo there is a smaller
color snapshot of Jean and June, taken when they were in their late 80s. In many ways, Jean shared a closer bond with her twin than her husband. Though June lived more than 200 miles away in West Hartford, Conn., they talked by phone several times a week, and June wrote often. The twins — who, as it happened, married brothers — were honored guests at the 70th reunion of the Camptown High School Class of 1937. Then, last year, June was diagnosed with cancer. She was in a lot of pain when Jean came to visit. The sisters shared a bed, and Jean rubbed her back. “I’m real glad you’re here,” June said. On Oct. 3, June died. She was buried in her sister’s backyard — but not for long. She kept her sister, who was dressed in her “best housecoat,” on an old
Postal Service to announce another rate increase WASHINGTON — Battered by massive losses, the Postal Service wants to raise rates to bring in more money. Postal officials scheduled a briefing today to discuss the amount of the increase, which will go to the independent Postal Regulatory Commission for review. The boost comes as no surprise. Postmaster General John Potter said March 2 that a rate increase would be necessary for the agency, which does not receive tax funds for its operations. The current 44-cent firstclass rate took effect May 11, 2009. While that change will be the most visible, rates for other types of mail will also go up, raising concern among business groups and nonprofit organizations. Under the law, the post office is generally limited to increases no more than the rate of inflation — 0.9 percent for the year ended in May. However, the agency is allowed to seek a larger increase in unusual circumstances. Potter said in March he planned to take that step. The agency lost $3.8 billion last fiscal year despite cutting 40,000 full-time positions and making other reductions. It has continued to face significant losses this year.
3 killed in plane crash near Jersey airport FAIRFIELD, N.J. — A small airplane aborted a landing at an airport before crashing at a nearby commercial strip and bursting into flames, killing a doctor and two relatives, authorities said. It appeared the plane was descending for a landing at the Essex County Airport in Fairfield when the pilot pulled up Monday evening, Essex County Sheriff Armando Fontoura said.

The plane, which had taken off from upstate New York, crashed moments later just north of the airport on a grassy patch surrounded by businesses and warehouses. Manhattan rheumatologist Margaret D. Smith, 70, was piloting the four-seater plane and died along with Michael Ferguson, 44, and his wife, Theresa Ferguson, Fairfield police Deputy Chief Steven Gutkin said. The three were the only people on the singleengine plane, a Cirrus SR22, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Holly Baker said.
Police: Priest stole $1M for male escorts NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A Roman Catholic priest in Connecticut was charged
today with stealing $1.3 million in church money over seven years to use for male escorts, expensive clothing and luxury hotels and restaurants. The Rev. Kevin J. Gray, former pastor at Sacred Heart/Sagrado Corazon Parish in Waterbury, was arrested and charged with first-degree larceny, Waterbury police said. Arraignment was expected today in Waterbury Superior Court. Gray, 64, used the money to stay at such hotels as the Waldorf-Astoria and on expensive clothing labels including Armani suits and Brooks Brothers, said Capt. Christopher Corbett. He also paid the college tuition and rent of two men he had met, Corbett said. “We are deeply saddened
WASHINGTON — The first stage of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul is expected to provide coverage to about 1 million uninsured Americans by next year, according to government estimates. That’s a small share of the uninsured, but in a shaky economy, experts say it’s notable. Many others — more than 100 million people — are getting new benefits that improve their existing coverage. Overall costs appear modest at this point, split among taxpayers, employers and individuals who directly benefit, although the biggest part of the health care expansion is still four years away. For weeks, the White House has been touting the new law’s initial benefit changes, even as Obama dares Republicans to make good on their threat to repeal his signature social policy achievement. Now, a clearer picture is starting to emerge from the patchwork of press releases. In 2014, government tax credits will help uninsured workers and their families pay premiums, and Medicaid will take in many more low-income people. Eventually, more than 30 million will gain coverage, sharply reducing the number of uninsured and putting the nation on a path to coverage for all citizens and legal immigrants.
couch in a spare room off the bedroom. Jean sprayed her with expensive perfume that was June’s favorite. She offered a similar rationale for keeping her husband on a couch in the detached garage. James, who had been laid to rest in a nearby cemetery, wore a dark suit, white shirt and blue knitted tie. “I could see him, I could look at him, I could touch him. Now, some people have a terrible feeling, they say, ‘Why do you want to look at a dead person? Oh my gracious,”’ she said. “Well, I felt differently about death.” Dr. Helen Lavretsky, a psychiatry professor at UCLA who researches how the elderly view death and dying, said people who aren’t particularly spiritual or religious often have a difficult time with death because they fear that death is truly the end.

Advanced Remote Sensing. About five gallons of tar balls were found Saturday on the Bolivar Peninsula, northeast of Galveston, said Capt. Marcus Woodring, the Coast Guard commander for the Houston/ Galveston sector. Two gallons were found Sunday on the peninsula and Galveston Island, though tests have not yet confirmed the oil’s origin. Woodring said the consistency of the tar balls indicates they could have been spread to Texas water by ships that have worked out in the spill. But there’s no way to confirm how they got there. Galveston Mayor Joe Jaworski said he believed the tar balls were a fluke. “This is good news,” he said. “The water looks good. We’re cautiously optimistic this is an anomaly.” Hurricane Alex, which blew through the Gulf last week and made landfall along the border between Texas and Mexico, may have played a small role in bringing the oil ashore in Texas by increasing the westerly current near land, Graber said. But it was more likely due to normal coastal currents and local weather patterns. NOAA scientists are looking at
local weather, Hurricane Alex and Gulf vessels as possible sources for the tar balls, agency spokeswoman Monica Allen said Monday. The distance between the western reach of the tar balls in Texas and the most eastern reports of oil in Florida is about 550 miles. Oil was first spotted on land near the mouth of the Mississippi River on April 29. The spill is reaching deeper into Louisiana. Strings of oil were seen Monday in the Rigolets, one of two waterways that connect the Gulf with Lake Pontchartrain, the large lake north of New Orleans. “So far it’s scattered stuff showing up, mostly tar balls,” said Louisiana Office of Fisheries Assistant Secretary Randy Pausina. “It will pull out with the tide, and then show back up.” New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said assets would be deployed to protect the Lake Pontchartrain basin. Pausina said he expected the oil to clear the passes and move directly into the lake, taking a backdoor route to New Orleans. The news of the spill’s reach comes at a time when most of the offshore skimming operations in the Gulf
have been halted by choppy seas and high winds. A tropical system that had been lingering off Louisiana flared up Monday afternoon, bringing heavy rain and winds. Last week, the faraway Hurricane Alex idled the skimming fleet off Alabama, Florida and Mississippi with choppy seas and stiff winds. Now they’re idled by the smaller storms that could last well into this week. Skimming across the Gulf has scooped up about 23.5 million gallons of oil-fouled water so far, but officials say it’s impossible to know how much crude could have been sucked up in good weather because of the fluctuating number of boats and other variables. Jerry Biggs, a commercial fisherman in Pass Christian, Miss., who has had to shut down because of the spill, is now hiring out his 13 boats and 40-man crew to BP for cleanup. He said skimming is severely hampered by the weather. “This isn’t going away. This isn’t a sneeze or a hiccup. This is diarrhea for a long time,” he said. “My lifestyle is screwed. It’s over. The thing that I love the most I’m not going to be able to do anymore.”
deputies had picked up as part of the investigation. “The phone might not be of any value to the investigation,” said Pace. “We will conduct a full death investigation to determine if a crime occurred.” Burton was booked into the Warren County Jail at 7:26 Monday morning and was being held without bond, records show. He had been arrested last month and charged, along with three others, in a theft in May in the 4800 block of Oak Ridge Road in which components for outdoor metal buildings were taken. He was free on a $2,500 bond in that case, but state law doesn’t allow release of people arrested while on bond. Pearson is survived by her husband, Blake Pearson, and her father, Joseph William Smollen V of Vicksburg. She had attended Millsaps College, where she had been elected in 2009 to the Student Body Association Senate. In 2008, she was accepted into the 3/3 Political Science/Pre-Law Program at Mississippi College, where she was named a dean’s scholar and received the Freshman Leadership Scholarship. She had attended Mississippi School of the Arts in Brookhaven, concentrating in vocal music. Arrangements will be under the direction of Fisher Funeral Home.

The Vicksburg team was the only city in Mississippi to be invited. “The camp was a competition,” Thompson said. “Then each month, we’ll go to training workshops in Memphis, where the students will learn about business presentations.” Students from the Southeast region met June 14-18 at Goizueta Business School at Emory University in Atlanta to participate in a five-day mock merger and acquisition competition. “We learned about supply and demand, the Peter Principle, the difference between public and
private companies,” said Daniel Kees, 14, a junior at Vicksburg High School. Daniel held the role of chief executive officer of their team’s company, which was Cablevision. His brother Joshua, 16, a senior at VHS, served as the chief financial officer. “I didn’t think working with numbers was going to be hard, but I found out later it was,” he said. “We now have a better understanding of how business works. We now know why they showed us some things.” Daniel and Joshua are the sons of Janice Kees and the late Dr. Stewart Kees.

The results are in the July/August issue. About 220,000 AAA members in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi receive Southern Traveler bi-monthly. The 1,800-acre VNMP, established in 1899, has more than 1,340 monuments and markers, a 16-mile tour road and a museum at the USS Cairo, a restored Union gunboat. An 18-minute orientation film is available at the visitors center, and living history demonstrations are offered each summer. In addition, the park will host a Junior Ranger day camp for children ages 6-12. Sessions will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 19-23 at Pemberton’s Headquarters, 1018
Crawford St., and will feature crafts and activities related to soldier and civilian life during the Siege of Vicksburg. Participants will be sworn in as junior rangers and awarded badges, patches and certificates. “There will be plenty for them to do and there will be things they take home every day,” said VNMP ranger Ray Hamel. “We want folks to go ahead and reserve a spot because they go pretty fast.” The VNMP also features a National Cemetery, established in 1866, which serves as a central burial ground for Union soldiers and sailors who participated in the siege. The cemetery contains more than 18,000 gravesites and holds the largest interment of Civil War soldiers and sailors in a U.S. national cemetery — 17,000 — of which 13,000 are unidentified.

Pallbearers will be Auburn Medders, Clyde Couey, Tommy Couey and Granville Couey.
Two other students who joined them were April Mayfield, 16, a junior at Warren Central High School, and Hunter Johnson, 17, a senior at St. Aloysius High School. “I have a lot more respect for people who work in business,” said April, the daughter of David and Estella Mayfield. “I learned a lot through the program.” She held the position of chief of marketing. “It was a good opportunity,” said Hunter, who served as the chief operating officer and chief human resources officer. He is the son of Bud and Valeria Johnson. While the Vicksburg team had only four participants who were chosen based on schedule and interest, another student, Frank Williamson of Atlanta, was placed on their team to complete their executive board. Students, who were all required to dress in business attire, logged more than 70 hours of simu-
lated work. All the students on the Vicksburg team said they had no prior business training. The Southwest district held its summer camp at The University of Houston in June, the Midwest district met last week at The University of Chicago and the Northeast district will meet at Columbia University next week. The summer camps will culminate with the Wall Street Conference on July 17-23 in New York, where students from all districts will meet with the CEO of Madison Square Garden and the New York Knicks basketball team to learn about the basketball franchise, as well as watch an exhibition game. They will also tour companies on Wall Street in the city’s financial district. The travel and activities’ cost of the year-round program for the four students is estimated to be $15,000, and will be paid by local busi-
nesses. Four businesses that have already donated to the program Ergon, Golding Barge Line, Walmart and Faith Christian Center. Thompson said her travel expenses will be billed to the city, but may also be paid retroactively pending funds raised through business subsidies. “So far, we have raised about 25 percent of the funds we need,” Thompson said. “It is up to us to continue to raise dollars to sponsor this program, not only for this year, but for the future.” She said organizers allowed for the Vicksburg team to participate regardless of the lacking funds. “My goal as a coordinator is to have an entire team go into 2011 fully funded,” Thompson said. The Mayor’s Youth Council, was formed in 2009. It has 11 students from VHS, WCHS and St. Aloysius.

Thousands in Lebanon march in top Shiite cleric’s funeral BEIRUT (AP) — Tens of thousands of people swarmed the coffin of Lebanon’s top Shiite cleric as it made its way through the streets of south Beirut to the mosque for burial today. Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, 75, died Sunday after a long illness. The cleric was one of Shiite Islam’s highest authorities and most revered religious figures. Seen by some as a spiritual mentor to the Hezbollah militant movement and by others as a voice of pragmatism and religious moderation, Fadlallah enjoyed a following that stretched beyond Lebanon’s borders to Iraq, the Gulf and Central Asia. “This is a sad day for the Muslim and Arab nation. I have been one of his followers since I was a child, and I don’t know if anyone will be able to fill the vacuum left behind by

region, a move opposed by the Arab-dominated central government. “If we have not integrated, we might have to think of some other mechanism,” Odierno said. “I don’t know what that is yet. Is it a Chapter 6 U.N. force? I don’t know. But that’s something that has to be worked out, and it’ll be depending on how far we are able to bring this process.” Chapter 6 of the United Nations charter refers to peacekeeping duties like investigating and mediating disputes. Odierno said that if Kurdish troops are working well within the Iraqi army, “then we’ll let them do it. It’s too early to tell.”
old communist-era welfare state. They have pledged to attack privileges in an attempt to prevent the Bronislaw Komorowski European debt crisis from spreading to Poland. The eastern European nation of 38 million people is the largest of the new European Union members and has a vibrant economy that has grown even amid the global downturn. But
it is still struggling with legacies from its decades of communist rule, including dilapidated infrastructure and large numbers of unemployed who haven’t adjusted well to capitalism — many of whom draw welfare benefits. Komorowski was elected for a five-year term, separately from the government, ending three years in which Lech Kaczynski, a social conservative who favored strong welfare protections, used his veto power to stop Prime Minister Donald Tusk from pushing through free market reforms.

U.S. Army Gen. Ray Odierno said U.N. peacekeepers might be one option if Kurdish soldiers haven’t integrated into the Arab-dominated Iraqi army over the next year.

HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Southern Miss football coach Larry Fedora said secondary coach Je’Ney Jackson has quit to take a job in Indiana. He said Jackson decided to take a job as a strength coach for an unspecified basketball program. Jackson was on the Southern Miss staff for only five months after joining the Golden Eagles following five years at Kansas. He started as a strength and conditioning coach for Kansas before moving up to the position of cornerbacks coach his final three years. Jackson took the Southern Miss secondary job in February. “It was a decision on his part. It’s not something I was real excited about. He felt like that was something he wanted to do,” Fedora told the Hattiesburg American. “I think it had to do with a whole lot less hours. It’s a lot less work so he’d have more free time. So essentially, he didn’t want to coach football.”

MOBILE, Ala. — Former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell has been charged with possession of a controlled substance — codeine syrup — after being arrested at his home in Alabama on Monday, authorities said. The 24-year-old former LSU star and the No. 1 draft choice in 2007 was arrested as part of an undercover narcotics investigation, said Mobile County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Lori Myles. She would not say what led to his arrest. She said he did not have a prescription for the codeine. Russell, who graduated from high school in Mobile, was booked into the city jail
nfL and released soon afterward on $2,500 bond, online records show. The Raiders released Russell, considered one of the NFL’s biggest draft busts, in May after he won only seven of his 25 starts and was benched. He completed just 52.1 percent of his passes in his career with 18 touchdowns, 23 interceptions, 15 lost fumbles and a passer rating of 65.2. Oakland paid Russell about $36.4 million through the 2009 season. Since the start of the common draft in 1967, only one other No. 1 pick was released this quickly in his NFL career.

Porters Chapel Academy faced a tough task this summer in breaking in a freshman quarterback, getting a new coaching staff and team to gel, and reinvigorating a program coming off its worst season in six years. OK, so maybe it wasn’t THAT tough. PCA has gone 5-2 in its tour of the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools’ 7-on-7 league this summer. With the success, the other problems have solved themselves, firstyear coach John Weaver said. “It’s helping in all phases
prep football of our game,” Weaver said. “Not just the passing, but our pass defense too. We’re working on tweaking some stuff in our coverages.” PCA will play a home 7-on-7 scrimmage tonight at 6 against Central Hinds as the start of a busy week. The team will host its first youth football camp on Wednesday, then play two more 7-on-7 games against Union Christian on Friday and Cathedral next Tuesday. By the time preseason practice begins on July 26 the Eagles will have played about a dozen such games. See PCA, Page B3.
‘Doc’ puts on a clinic in win over Braves Knicks reel in Amare
By The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — Nearly an hour after going the distance again, Roy Halladay walked over to reporters with ice on his arm and sweat dripping from his forehead. Maybe it’s his postgame workouts that make Halladay such a workhorse on the mound. Halladay pitched his major league-best seventh complete game this season, Greg Dobbs hit a two-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 3-1 on Monday night. “He pitched a super game,” Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said of the Phillies’ ace, nicknamed ‘Doc.’ “He’s a horse.” Halladay (10-7) allowed five hits and struck out seven to record his second straight complete game. The All-Star right-hander outdueled Derek Lowe (9-7) and needed just 93 pitches to finish. Then he really broke a sweat on the stationary bike and doing arm exercises. “Just getting the blood moving,” Halladay said. Chipper Jones homered for the NL East-leading Braves. The two-time NL champion Phillies, who lost three of four to lowly Pittsburgh over the weekend, need to win this threegame series to avoid losing more ground in the division. They’re 17-23 in the last 40 games and trail Atlanta by four games. Lowe allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings, striking out six. The sinkerballer gave up only two flyouts.

mlb “Lowe pitched another great game. Again we didn’t score any runs for him,” Braves manager Bobby Cox said. Lowe was cruising until Jayson Werth hit a one-out single in the sixth. Dobbs hit the next pitch into the seats in right-center for his second homer and a 2-1 lead.
league-best seventh complete game of the season as the Phillies beat the Braves 3-1.
Jones gave the Braves a 1-0 lead in the first when he hit the first pitch he saw from Halladay into the seats in left-center for just his sixth homer. Halladay hasn’t received much run support from a previously high-powered offense that’s been inconsistent this season. The Phillies have scored a total of 12 runs in Halladay’s seven losses.
Acquired from Toronto in the offseason, the former AL Cy Young Award winner has lived up to high expectations. He has a 2.33 ERA and easily could have 14 or 15 wins if Philadelphia’s offense was better. “It’s been a bit of a grind,” Halladay said. “I try and go out as intense as I can every time. If you do something different, it takes you out of your routine.”
M-Braves run scoreless streak to 28 innings From staff reports In a rollercoaster season, the Mississippi Braves are finding out there’s no place like home. Brandon Beachy struck out 11 batters in seven shutout innings, and Dan Nelson homered in his Pearl debut as the M-Braves beat the West Tenn Diamond Jaxx 3-0 on Monday night. Beachy (3-1) allowed four hits and no walks, and Juan Abreu finished up with two innings of relief to cap the
minor league baseball M-Braves’ second consecutive shutout. They beat West Tenn 8-0 on Sunday and also shut out Mobile in the final game of their previous homestand, giving them a scoreless streak of 28 consecutive innings at Trustmark Park. Beachy, a Southern League All-Star, improved to 2-0 with a 0.72 ERA since moving into the starting
rotation. He threw 72 of his 97 pitches Monday for strikes. Nelson, a third baseman promoted earlier Monday from Class A Myrtle Beach, had a memorable debut for Mississippi. He went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, two RBIs and two runs scored. He homered to right field in the bottom of the sixth to give the M-Braves a 2-0 lead, then brought in a run with a ground out in the eighth for the final run. Nelson also singled in the
second inning and scored the game’s first run on a base hit by Alejandro Machado. The quick three-game series concludes tonight at 7:05. Tim Gustafson (2-0, 0.84 ERA) will start for the M-Braves against West Tenn’s Dan Cortes (5-2, 4-97 ERA). On Wednesday, the M-Braves welcome Birmingham into Trustmark Park for the start of a four-game series. All four games begin at 7:05 p.m.
NEW YORK — While the top free agents are pondering their futures, the New York Knicks gave them something to think about. If LeBron James or Dwyane Wade comes to New York now, a dominant big man will be there waiting. Amare Stoudemire agreed Monday to sign with the Knicks for nearly $100 million, vowing to lead a rebirth in New York that the team Amare hopes won’t Stoudemire have to be done alone. “This could help get the dominoes falling and he’d be a great teammate for somebody,” Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said. “We went after a very, very good free agent and you can’t tell what’s in other people’s minds, but we do know that if you’re serious about winning, we’ve got a piece that helps you do that.” The Knicks said they intend to sign Stoudemire to a contract later this week when the free agent moratorium period ends. His agent, Happy Walters, said the deal is for the maximum allowed, which would be about $99.7 million over five years. Stoudemire has already started recruiting, saying he spoke to James’ people and directly to Wade last week. He plans to pitch them again, but insisted he won’t be affected if those players say no to New York. “Totally comfortable, totally confident that my leadership qualities will uplift all of us to do something great this upcoming season,” Stoudemire said. “So again, the Knicks are back.” The deal can’t be signed until Thursday, after the salary cap for next season has been set. It was a desperately needed score in free agency for the Knicks, who had signs that pictured Stoudemire in their uniform and reading “Welcome, Amare Stoudemire” See Stoudemire, Page B3.

Hockey Former NHL goon Probert dead at 45 DETROIT — Retired hockey enforcer Bob Probert, as adept with his fists as with a stick in a 16-season career with the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks, died Monday after suffering chest pains while boating with his family. He was 45. Probert was on a boat in Lake St. Clair with his wife, children and in-laws when he “developed severe chest pains” Monday, family friend Rich Rogow told reporters at the medical center. Probert, who struggled to overcome drinking problems during his time in the NHL, played for the Red Wings in 1985-1994 and for the Blackhawks in 1995-2002. The Windsor native had 384 points (163 goals, 221 assists) in 935 career regular-season games with Detroit and Chicago. His 3,300 career penalty minutes rank sixth in NHL history.
College sports Georgia AD Evans resigns after arrest ATHENS, Ga. — Damon Evans offered another apology on the day his resignation as Georgia’s athletic director was announced by the school’s president. The announcement by Michael Adams came after a conference call with the executive committee of the athletic association’s board of directors Monday. Adams said Evans resigned Sunday, less than a week after Evans was arrested on a DUI charge. Evans released a statement Monday in which he offered “my sincerest apology” to Adams, Georgia officials, coaches, fans and student-athletes. Evans was 34 when he was chosen athletic director in 2004. According to the Georgia State Patrol’s incident report, Evans attempted to influence the arresting officer, identified in the report as M. Cabe, by telling the officer he was Georgia’s athletic director. Cabe said that Evans asked to be taken to a motel instead of jail or to be let off with a warning. The officer noted that Evans was found with a “red pair of lady’s panties between his legs.” Also arrested with him was Courtney Fuhrmann, who was charged with disorderly conduct. Evans said Thursday Fuhrmann is “just a friend.” According to the report, Fuhrmann told the arresting officer she had been seeing Evans for “only a week or so.” Evans and his wife, Kerri, have two children.

Cancellara regains top spot WANZE, Belgium (AP) — Norwegian Thor Hushovd won Stage 3 of the Tour de France today, finishing just at the front of a pack of riders in the cobblestoned streets of Belgium. Swtizerland’s Fabian Cancellara regained the yellow leader’s jersey a day after losing it, while Lance Armstrong surged close to the lead before a punctured tire dropped him 40 seconds behind Canecellara. The day’s stage was 132-mile rolling ride from Wanze to Arenberg Porte du Hainaut, a day after a series of crashes caused chaos in the peloton. Riders tumbled like dominoes in the rain and littered the road in a scene Armstrong called “surreal.” The seven-time champion did not escape the mayhem. He was left searching for his bike, nursing scrapes and bruises to his hip and elbow and joking about the decision to come out of retirement. He was in good company, joining dozens of riders who hit the asphalt on a slippery downhill run some likened to ice skating. Sylvain Chavanel of France was among few to avoid trouble. He sped to victory after breaking away early in the 125mile trip from Brussels to Spa
cycling and taking the yellow jersey from Cancellara. With the pack bangedup, he finished nearly four minutes ahead. Lance His luck Armstrong didn’t hold today. He punctured a tire and slipped from the lead. With so many riders down in crashes Monday, organizers said they briefly considered canceling the stage altogether. But under the race rules, the spills were too spread out to warrant a cancellation. Armstrong returned to the RadioShack team bus with his team outfit torn and a bloody scrape on his thigh. His team said he also injured his elbow but otherwise was all right. “You had people everywhere. It was surreal. When I got back on my bike ... I saw crash, after crash, after crash,” Armstrong said, noting riders laid out on the ground. “It was like war.” Chavanel began the stage in 87th place and knocked everyone on the leaderboard down a notch: Cancellara dropped to second, 2 minutes, 57 sec-
onds behind. Germany’s Tony Martin was third, 3:07 back. Armstrong began today’s third stage in fifth, 3:19 back, and defending champion Alberto Contador of Spain was seventh, 3:24 behind. The Spanish two-time Tour winner bruised his right hip, knee and elbow. Some riders believed a motorcycle crash in the race caravan before the pack passed left oil on the road, creating an especially slick mix with the rain. On the descent from the midlevel Stockeu Pass, Armstrong, Contador and 2009 runner-up Andy Schleck all went down. Armstrong said he knew he was not badly hurt, but he did have other concerns. “I knew I was fine,” he said. “My first thought was: ‘Where is my bike?’ I tried to find my bike. You know in the rain these guys are very good downhill. I’m not one of them. But even the good ones, with something like that: No chance. Absolutely no chance.” Everybody finished, except French rider Mickael Delage, who slammed into a road barrier early in the stage. The Omega Pharma-Lotto rider was taken to hospital with a

Scrapes and bruises were reported by the dozens, and nearly every team was affected. Some riders estimated at least half the 194rider peloton had fallen. A post-stage medical report listed 23 as at least slightly injured during the day. On the Garmin-Transitions team alone, Americans Tyler Farrar and Christian Vande Velde, and Julian Dean of New Zealand were taken to a hospi-
Wade is mum on his plans MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade isn’t ready to give any answers. So he’s not going to take any questions. Not yet, anyway. His appearance at a morning news conference in South Florida today was postponed, the latest chapter in a free agency saga that has the Miami Heat on edge about the possibility of losing him to another team. Wade’s youth basketball camp for children was beginning today, and part of the day’s itinerary was to include a question-and-answer session alongside Alonzo Mourning about the charity weekend they will headline in South Florida later this month. Shortly after midnight today, officials for the charity event called the Summer Groove said the news conference would be rescheduled. Wade’s side had concerns that free agency would be the only matter discussed at the news conference, and there had been internal discussions for several days about canceling the event. A free agent for the first time, Wade is torn between staying in Miami and playing

in Miami for the first time since free agency began. He’s one of the three clear headliners of the free-agent crop, the others being LeBron James and Chris Bosh. Wade and Bosh, who are both represented by Chicagobased agent Henry Thomas, have been particularly close during free agency, holding some of their meetings in the
same building in Chicago and dining together on several occasions. “They want to feel like they have evaluated everything about each situation,” Thomas wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Monday. “It is fair to say, that the decision for both has been harder than either imagined.”
could announce their decisions later in the week, and perhaps they might take a second look at New York now that there’s another huge piece in place. “No one wanted to make the first move and I feel confident enough to take that first step and hopefully now we can bring a few guys in to join me,” Stoudemire said. The Knicks decided they no longer needed to wait on an answer from Bosh, especially because Stoudemire showed such a commitment to New York. They even gave him the longest contract allowable without knowing if it could be insured because of Stoudemire’s injury history
that includes microfracture knee surgery and a partially detached retina. “I think to a degree the fact that Amare really wanted to come here, stepped up front, it got to the point where we had to acknowledge that and say that means something to us,” Knicks president Donnie Walsh said. Walsh said Stoudemire’s arrival didn’t necessarily mean the end for David Lee, the Knicks’ own All-Star free agent who plays the same position. Lee could also be used in a sign-and-trade, though Walsh indicated he hadn’t received any good proposals in discussions with Lee’s agent.

The move reunites Stoudemire with D’Antoni, his former coach in Phoenix. Stoudemire averaged more than 20 points in every season they were together and immediately becomes the best player D’Antoni has coached since leaving the Suns in 2008. “He’s a dominant offensive player for sure, in a variety of ways,” D’Antoni said. Stoudemire’s days with the Suns ended late last week
when the team agreed to $48 million worth of deals with forwards Hakim Warrick and Channing Frye. The sides had discussed an extension, but the Suns looked elsewhere after they’d reached a stalemate. Wearing a Knicks hat, Stoudemire said he understood owner Robert Sarver’s position and wasn’t disrespected by the Suns’ refusal to give him a max deal that would have paid him millions more. He said he’s always loved New York and wanted to play here since the Knicks passed on him in the 2002 draft. He finally got to Broadway by becoming the first big player in this much-hyped free agent class to change teams. The other top players

tal for evaluation. Vande Velde, who finished fifth in 2008, broke two ribs in Monday’s crash and dropped out of the Tour this morning. The Garmin-Transitions team said he also had facial lacerations. “Riding downhill was almost like ice skating,” said Johan Bruyneel, the RadioShack manager and Armstrong’s longtime mentor. Teammates Andreas Kloeden and Levi Leipheimer fell. “Almost half of the peloton crashed today,” Bruyneel said.
The playing time has helped freshman quarterback Jonah Masterson adjust to the leap from junior varsity to varsity, Weaver said. “We’re going with a freshman quarterback, so as a coaching staff we want to get as much real time with him in the passing game as we can so he can get acclimated,” Weaver said. “It’s a good learning tool for him. It’s a glorified practice that I don’t think they’ve ever done here before.” The 7-on-7 games have helped more than Masterson, Weaver added. They provide a nice break from the usual summer routine of lifting weights and conditioning drills. That, in turn, has given the team a spark it needed after last year’s 4-8 season — the program’s first without a winning record since 2003. “It helps our guys with their attitude. They want to get out there and throw the ball around. Our attendance this summer has been good, and it teaches them to compete in the summer,” said Weaver, who has 26 players on the varsity roster. “The kids are buying into the program. It’s only the beginning of July and they’re already ready for August 20.”

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A pointed finger, smile, chuckle and head shake. That was all. If LeBron James has made up his mind, he’s not saying so. The world must wait. The NBA’s most wanted man offered no clues about his highly anticipated free agent decision on Monday after making an unexpected appearance — and getting in a few full-court hoop games with good friend Chris Paul — at his Nike skills academy at the University of Akron. After working out for two hours and then icing both his knees and right elbow for another hour, James, wearing a white T-shirt and his familiar New York Yankees cap, headed toward the door of Rhodes Arena. On his way out, he was asked by The Associated Press if he had anything to say. James pointed toward a reporter in the balcony, smiled and shook his head in amusement. He then drove away in a white Bentley, one of seven vehicles in a caravan that included Paul, manager Maverick Carter, business partner Rich Paul and security personnel. James, who is considering offers from the Cleveland Cav-
aliers, Chicago Bulls and at least four other teams, was not expected to appear at the first day of the camp featuring some of the nation’s top high school and college players. However, not only did James show up, he got in a spirited workout that included shooting drills and scrimmages. James is not expected to make his big announcement until the three-day camp ends Wednesday, one day before players can officially sign new contracts. He was scheduled to return to the camp today. The Cavaliers and Bulls are considered the frontrunners to land James, the 25-year-old megastar who has spent his first seven seasons playing in Cleveland. “I wish I could close my eyes, go to sleep and when I wake up it’s over,” said Gail White, a bartender at a TGI Friday’s near James’ home in Bath, Ohio. “I hope he’s not selfish enough to play somewhere else. I would hope he would want his hometown to succeed. “Everyone wants him to stay. He means so much to the area, and people have been willing to tolerate the wait. I’ve talked to a lot of people and the consensus is that he’s going to stay. Let’s hope so.”

Michael arrested after car crash George Michael has been arrested after a car crash in London, British reports said. The BBC said the 47-year-old singer was arrested Sunday after police responded to reports that a car had crashed into a building in Hampstead, an upscale residential area in north London. Metropolitan Police said only that they arrested a man in his 40s early Sunday in Hampstead George Michael on suspicion of being unfit to drive. They say the man was taken to a police station and released on bail pending further inquiries. The singer’s publicists in London declined comment today. Last year, Michael was questioned by police after his car hit a tractor-trailer, but was released. He was banned from driving for two years in 2007 after pleading guilty to driving on drugs.
Men at Work punished for copied riff A judge ordered Australian band Men at Work today to hand over a portion of the royalties from their 1980s hit “Down Under,” after previously ruling its distinctive flute riff was copied from a children’s campfire song. But the penalty — 5 percent of the song’s royalties — was far less than the 60 percent sought by publishing company Larrikin Music, which holds the copyright for the song “Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree.” “Kookaburra” was written more than 70 years ago by Australian teacher Marion Sinclair for a Girl Guides competition, and the song about the native Australian bird has been a favorite around campfires from New Zealand to Canada. Sinclair died in 1988, but Larrikin filed a copyright lawsuit last year. In February, Federal Court Justice Peter Jacobson ruled Men at Work had copied their song’s signature flute melody from “Kookaburra.” On Tuesday, Jacobson ordered Men at Work’s recording company, EMI Songs Australia, and “Down Under” songwriters Colin Hay and Ron Strykert, to pay 5 percent of royalties earned from the song since 2002 and from its future earnings. A statute of limitations restricted Larrikin from seeking royalties earned before 2002.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Leslie Van Houten, the onetime Charles Manson follower long seen as the most likely of his ex-acolytes to win freedom someday, faces her 19th parole hearing today with a new lawyer and new case law which may give her the best chance yet for release. Even if there is a finding of suitability for parole at the hearing, freedom would not be immediate. The entire state parole board would review the decision within 120 days and it would then be submitted to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for a final ruling. Van Houten, 60, remains incarcerated at the California Institution for Women at Frontera, the same prison where another Manson follower, Patricia Krenwinkle, is imprisoned. Susan Atkins, the third woman convicted of murder in the crimes directed by cult leader Manson, died in prison last year after parole officials denied her
dying request for freedom. Van Houten last appeared before a parole board in 2007. Her chances for parole are enhanced by Leslie Van Houten the fact that she has been discipline free since her incarceration in the early 1970s, has positive psychological reports and has been active in self-help groups at the prison including “Golden Girls,” a group for elderly women inmates. She has a new lawyer, Brandie Devall, who told The Associated Press she will refer to rulings by the California Supreme Court in 2008 and 2009 affecting standards for parole. Most significant is the case of Sandra Lawrence, a convicted murderer who was paroled after 23 years in prison after the court held that to refuse parole there must be evidence
‘Bachelor’ split shows ugly side of public splits LOS ANGELES (AP) — She said he wasn’t intimate. He said she wasn’t faithful. She called him a fame whore. He called her jealous. For weeks, the nasty break-up of “The Bachelor” couple Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi has been fought in the tabloids. In their latest round of sparring, the pair were back in front of the reality TV cameras where it all began. “Unfortunately, that’s what one of our arguments looks like,” Pavelka said after a weeping Girardi stomped away from their pretaped reunion Jake Pavelka at the end of Monday’s epi- Girardi sode of “The Bachelorette” starring Ali Fedotowsky, the former Facebook advertising account manager who chose her job over Pavelka during his “Bachelor” season. “It’s kind of embarrassing.” “The Bachelor” host Chris Harrison moderated the pool-side debate between the couple, who called off their engagement last month. The 32-year-old pilot from Dallas and the 23-year-old Geneva, Fla., resident quarreled over such issues as where they should place furniture in their home and why she gave an interview to a tabloid about their split. Normally, when the couples who meet on “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” end their made-on-TV relationships — just three out of 19 are still together — their publicists release a statement announcing an amicable parting before they quietly fade
back into obscurity. Pavelka and Girardi, however, quickly launched into public mudslinging after ending their romance. Girardi lashed out first by appearing on the cover of Star magazine alongside the headline “Jake’s a MONSTER!” Pavelka then struck back on the front of People magazine above the headline “I DON’T TRUST HER.” Girardi later dodged infidelity allegations on Twitter, while Pavelka unloaded about his relationship regrets in an interview with and Vienna “Extra” host Mario Lopez. “Nobody likes airing out their grief in public,” said D. Ivan Young, author of relationship guide “Break Up, Don’t Break Down.” “When you find people putting behavior like that out there, they are people who are more concerned about the integrity of their brand rather than the content of their character. Those relationships are superficial at best.” The tumultuous separation and subsequent speculation — Is Jake getting back together with Ali? Is Vienna going to pose for Playboy? Is Jake gay? — has remained a hot topic in the tabloids and online. Irad Eyal, reality TV producer and author of celebrity relationship guide “Sex Degrees of Separation,” said the duo’s messy end is atypical Hollywood behavior. “They really went off the rails,” said Eyal.

Singer Cole in the hospital with malaria British singer and TV personality Cheryl Cole is being treated in a London hospital for malaria, a spokesman said. Publicist Sundraj Sreenivasan said today the 27-year-old performer will have to cancel all work commitments for the next week. Cole reportedly recently returned from a trip to Tanzania. Britain’s tabloids reported that Cole, a judge along with Simon Cowell on the British reality talent show “The X Factor,” collapsed during a photoshoot for her album on Saturday.

that a prisoner is currently a danger to public safety. The court said the board could not base a refusal only on the details of the crime committed by the inmate long ago. Devall said the finding has also been upheld in federal court. Another recent case, she said, deals with inmates who are between 16 and 20-yearsold at the time of their crimes and holds that they are more likely to be rehabilitated. Van Houten was 19 when she joined other members of the Manson cult in the killings of Leno and Rosemary La Bianca. Devall said the cases she will cite had not been decided at the time of Van Houten’s last parole hearing. She said she will cite Van Houten’s age, her youth at the time of the crimes and her extreme remorse. “There is no evidence of current dangerousness,” she said. The prosecutor who will

What goes around keeps coming around in recycling Dear Abby: On May 13, “Diana in Lakewood, Calif.,” asked you how to reuse or donate little jewelry boxes. You offered some great tips, but you should have let folks know about two terrific resources for giving away or recycling odd things. Freecycle.org is an online network where people can give away or find free stuff in their local neighborhood. It is a great way to recycle items — like the jewelry boxes — to a local thrift store, a crafter or a teacher. Earth911.com is also an amazing directory of local reuse and recycling options. I work at a thrift store for home improvements. (Instead of donating clothing or furniture, some people give us lumber, kitchen cabinets, hardware, etc.) Most people don’t know that stores like ours exist. Reusing items from your neighbors wastes no energy and builds a sense of community. Abby, thanks for touching on this important topic. — Ruthie M. in Edmonston, Md. Dear Ruthie: Many readers
DEAR ABBY ABIGAIL
wrote to remind me that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and we all must do whatever it takes to keep items out of landfills. Read on: Dear Abby: I am an activity director at a small longterm-care facility and would love to receive those jewelry boxes. People don’t realize how grateful we are to provide a home for their extra greeting cards, craft supplies, fabric scraps, wrapping paper, games, cards — the list goes on and on. Diana should consider contacting her local nursing home activity director and put those boxes to good use. Budgets are tight. With every cut our state and federal governments make to nursing homes, activity directors are always happy to give new life to no-longer-needed items. —
BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Be very careful about passing on any information you get from someone who is known to be a troublemaker. This person could have a malicious intent and use you to carry it out. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Although you basically are someone who holds a positive attitude on most things, this time you might give more credence to unsubstantiated negative thinking. Don’t be your worst enemy. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Managing delicate situations for others is generally what you do best, but sorting out some minor complications for yourself could be another story at times. Today might be one of those days. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Something that has caused you a lot of concern lately is likely to turn out OK. However, it isn’t likely to be due to your efforts, but from the work of someone in whom you have little faith who will perform well. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Your judgment can be relied upon when you take ample time to study matters. However, chances are that you’ll put too much stock in a brief assessment and end up failing. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Rewards are usually received in direct proportion to your efforts and dedication, and today will be no different. Don’t look for any bonuses if your exertions are minimal. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — View situations realistically and forgo trying to make any guesses on a hunch. Although your intuitive instincts are usually good, your analytical faculties will be much better right now. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Productivity will have its limitations if you attempt to take on far more than you can manage. Keep your expectations and efforts within reasonable boundaries, or your work will suffer. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Getting involved commercially or financially with a friend isn’t likely to be the smart thing to do. If anything goes wrong, and chances are it will, the relationship could collapse. Aries (March 21-April 19) — A bothersome problem is resolvable, but that right person to help you out might not be readily available. Involve yourself in something else until s/he can help you out. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Unless you spell out in detail how you want a certain job done, the person doing it for you could get off on the wrong track. If your directions are unclear, the job will be botched. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — If you wishfully see things as you want them to be instead of as they actually are, you can’t fix what is broken. Be realistic in your assessments and expectations.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: My best friend has been depressed for over a month because her parents separated and her boyfriend broke up with her. Last night, she shocked me when she told me she was thinking about committing suicide. She said she felt abandoned and that nobody loved her anymore, and if it wasn’t for our friendship, she would have killed herself a month ago. This really upset me and I don’t know what to do. I talked to my mom. She said my friend is just seeking sympathy right now and she’ll get over it in a little while. But I know Leanne very well and I have never seen her act this way before. It’s scary. My mom says I should stay away from her and allow her to work things out herself. I don’t think she’s right, do you? What should I do? I really want to help her, but I don’t know how. If she did kill herself and I had done nothing to stop her, I’d be a very troubled young lady. Leanne is living with her mother right now, but she would rather live with her father. She blames her mother for the separation. — Jody, Reno, Nev. Jody: All suicide threats should be taken seriously. Have your mother contact your best friend’s mother about her daughter’s suicide threat. Continue to be a good listener and stay close with your friend. She needs your friendship and encouragement more than ever now. Your friend may also call the toll-free National Hopeline Network: 800-442-4673. Counselors are available 24 hours a day to speak with young people having thoughts of suicide. When school begins again in the fall, if your friend is still depressed, have your mother encourage your friend’s mother to go with her daughter to speak with the school counselor, school nurse or the principal. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

The Activity Goddess, Buhl, Idaho Dear Abby: I have another suggestion for Diana in Lakewood. Quit buying so much stuff! Recycling is only a partial solution to a wasteful lifestyle. Millions of tons of plastic, no matter how many times it is recycled, end up in our oceans, where Texas-sized flotillas of plastic goo will outlast us all. The key is to generate less in the first place. When considering a purchase, consider all four “R’s”: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Repair. In this case, the option to “Reduce” should be observed by either buying less jewelry, or asking the vendors to quit over-packaging the stuff. — Dr. James HayesBrohanan, Professor of Environmental Geography Dear Abby: Diana should donate the boxes to Goodwill, Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, preschools, Girl Scouts and Sunday schools — not the landfill! — Elsie K., Oak Ridge, Tenn. Dear Abby: Perfectly good
items should never be tossed into a landfill. There is always someone who can use whatever it is as long as it’s in good condition (and sometimes even when it’s not). It should be the responsibility of the consumer to find that someone. While it may not be a legal responsibility, it is the right thing to do. — Rosie W. in Denver Dear Abby: Most malls and department stores open giftwrapping booths at holiday time. They are usually set up to raise funds for a specific charity. Diana can contact mall management and find out if it plans to have one and if so, what agency will be operating it. Then she can contact the agency and arrange to donate all of the boxes. Believe me, small boxes are always needed. — Lynn in Cambridge, Ontario

Aspirin, some antibiotics used to treat tinnitus Dear Dr. Gott: Any advice on how to treat tinnitus? Dear Reader: Yes, but first let me explain the condition. Tinnitus is a roaring, hissing, clicking, buzzing or ringing in the ears that is likely related to an underlying disorder such as ear injury, hearing loss or disorder of the circulatory system. There are two forms of tinnitus — subjective and objective. The subjective form is common and can be heard only by the person whose ears are affected. This type is generally connected to the outer, middle or inner ear; however, the auditory nerve or portion of the brain that interprets nerve signals might also be involved. The objective form of tinnitus is less common but can be heard by a physician during examination and generally involves blood vessel, muscular or innerear-bone problems. The inner ear contains delicate hairs that move with the pressure of sound. The cells of the ear then release an electrical signal via the auditory nerve to the brain that ultimately interprets the signal as sound. Should the hairs become bent or broken, they send random impulses to the brain that can result in tinnitus. Some of the more common causes for the condition include repeated exposure to loud noises, as with using a lawn mower or chain saw or listening to music through earphones; excessive wax buildup in the ears; the normal aging process; and abnormal changes in bone growth. A number of medications, including aspirin taken in high doses, some antibiotics, diuretics and others can cause tinnitus or worsen it. Diagnosis begins with an examination to determine whether simple earwax impaction might be to blame. A medical history that includes drugs and over-the-counter medicines or supplements will help a physician determine whether the medication is to blame. If so, a change or discontinuation might be appropriate. While tinnitus of unknown cause cannot be cured, there are a number of treatments that can reduce or mask its severity. Protect your ears with plugs, cotton or muffs when exposed to loud noises. If appropriate, reduce your alcohol intake, because it dilates blood vessels and causes a greater flow to the already damaged ears. Dear Dr. Gott: I have horizontal ripples, bumps and concaves on my index-finger nail and thumbnail. My index finger has had the problem for years, the thumbnail for about six weeks. And other nails have been changing. Dear Reader: Ridged nails are often an indication of a vitamin or mineral deficiency, poor diet, the aging process or a loss of moisture. Shortages of A, B, iron, protein and calcium are commonly detected. Hori-
