when her 2006 Hyundai Sonata ran off Mississippi 43, two miles south of Mississippi 28 just before 4 p.m., a spokesman for the Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol said. “She had driven two hours to Prentiss to pick up her 80-year-old father and drove another hour up to Jackson

to take him to the VA hospital and had just taken him back to his home in Prentiss” when the wreck occurred, her husband, Paul Buckley, said this morning. “She ran into some bad weather.” The highway patrol said Buckley’s northbound car hit a tree. She was pronounced dead at the scene, officials

Repairs expected soon at Catfish Row playground By John Surratt jsurratt@vicksburgpost.com Problems at the Playground at Catfish Row might be resolved soon. “There is equipment there that is broken and needs repair, and there’s trash around the park that needs to be picked up,” said Speler Montgomery, president of the Junior Auxiliary of Vicksburg, which in 2008 raised $230,000 and signed up volunteers from across the city to build the playground. “We have a xylophone that children can play, but the hammer is gone,” she said. “There is a piece of equipment that children can walk on, but one of the ropes is down. There’s wire on the fence that has been broken or cut.” Junior Auxiliary members said parents taking their children to the park have complained to them about the equipment, including a sandbox with no sand, and problems with litter and trash at the playground. She also cited a safety problem — an exposed pipe near a section of a hill children use for sliding. The 3-inch pipe juts out about a foot. A smaller piece of plastic pipe is exposed at the top of the incline inches from where the children sit to start the slide. Montgomery said the City of Vicksburg was not living up to the agreement with JA in March 2008 to accept and maintain the park. That could change soon. North Ward Alderman Michael Mayfield said Tuesday that city crews would be at the park today to fix the problems. Late Tuesday afternoon, city crews roped off the pipe and several pieces of exposed rebar at the park with safety tape. The areas were taped off

Speler Montgomery, president of the Junior Auxiliary of Vicksburg, looks at a xylophone that is missing the attached mallet at the Playground at Catfish Row Tuesday afternoon. after Mayfield visited the park. “Those are safety hazards and need to be taken care of immediately,” he said late Tuesday afternoon. “We’ll have crews out here tomorrow morning to get it taken care of.” He said parks and recreation maintenance director Jeff Boyett would also survey the problems. Mayfield and South Ward Aldermen Sid Beauman said they were unaware of the problems in the park. Beauman said he had heard no complaints about the playground. “Most of the problems occur during the night, when people gather in that area,” Mayfield said. “We tell our police officers to check that area and keep an eye on it as close as possible.”

Crime tape is strung to keep people out of the Playground at Catfish Row. A restaurant and bar is next door to the playground, and another is less than a block away on Grove at Washington streets.

Mayfield and Beauman said city and community service crews go through the park in the morning to collect litter. Montgomery visited the

Redwood Elementary School teacher Mary Daniels was back at school Tuesday getting her classroom ready for her students’ arrival on Aug. 8. “Everything has to be organized,” said the fourth-grade teacher. “I want to put a lot of welcome signs up to welcome them in.

Two men jailed after checks stolen One Vicksburg man was in the Warren County Jail and one was in the custody of Jackson police this morning after both were charged with stealing checks from a Vicksburg car, Vicksburg police Sgt. Sandra Williams said. Robert Heads, 22, 103 Galtney Drive, was in the Warren County Jail charged with conspiracy to commit forgery, and Reginald Scott, 24, 922 Polk St., was in Jackson charged with forgery, Williams said. The auto burglary was reported at 9:33 a.m. Wednesday in the 1000 block of East Avenue. At noon, a Vicksburg bank called police to report two men were attempting to cash checks that were not theirs. The two left before police arrived. A few hours later, Jackson police responded to a call of two men trying to cash stolen checks at a Jackson bank and arrested the two. Heads was being held on a $30,000 bond, and Scott was being held without bond.

Disaster order clears way for funds By Danny Barrett Jr.

dbarrett@vicksburgpost.com

A federal disaster declaration for 13 Mississippi counties will mean money will be available to reimburse the cost of flood cleanup in Vicksburg and Warren County. Local governments can now rebuild and recover what was lost during the Mississippi River’s historic flood, Gov. Haley Barbour said following the announcement. Public assistance grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to state and local governments and some private nonprofit agencies kick in 75 percent of eligible costs for removing debris left behind by the floodwaters. The funds also allow cities and counties to repair roads and bridges, publicly-owned buildings, water control facili-

mississippi river flood

ties, public utilities, parks and recreational facilities. The counties included in the declaration by President Barack Obama are: Adams, Bolivar, Claiborne, Coahoma, Humphreys, Issaquena, Jefferson, Sharkey, Tunica, Warren, Washington, Wilkinson and Yazoo. The declaration means debris outside Vicksburg may now be moved by the Warren County Road Department, County Administrator John Smith said. Before the declaration, reimbursements were limited to overtime costs and the use of materials and equipment during the flood. Flood debris inside Vicksburg has been hauled away by

city crews and taken to Waste Management’s transfer station on U.S. 61 South. Four debris monitors have been hired to observe the process to meet FEMA guidelines for reimbursement. More claims for individual and household assistance were filed in Warren County than in any other flood-affected county, according to FEMA. Through Monday’s filing deadline, 912 applicants had registered and $2,094,755.58 was paid out locally. In Yazoo County, 429 claims have translated into $1,097,465.46 in aid. In Tunica County, hit hard in May by casino closures and a 31 percent unemployment rate for the month, $4,144,010.66 has been paid out to 418 claimants.

FBI mum on Choctaw resort search PHILADELPHIA — The FBI conducted a search Tuesday at the Pearl River Resorts run by the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians in Neshoba County. Neither the FBI nor the tribe would say for what the FBI was looking. The resort, which includes the Silver Star and Golden Moon casinos, did not close.

Ledger editor Ronnie Agnew named MPB director JACKSON — Ronnie Agnew, executive editor of The Clarion-Ledger newspaper, has been appointed executive director of Mississippi Public Broadcasting. In a posting on its website, the newspaper reported that Agnew will take up his new post in August. He had been with the newspaper for more than 10 years. Agnew, 48, of Madison, is a Saltillo native and graduate of the University of Mississippi.

Hewes says he would keep committee chiefs in place By Holbrook Mohr The Associated Press JACKSON — State Sen. Billy Hewes says the chairmen of the Senate’s two most powerful committees will remain the same if he’s elected lieutenant governor this year, but he’d appoint a new Education Committee chairman to oversee reforms.

Hewes, a 49-year-old insurance and real estate executive from Gulfport, said Tuesday that he would ke e p S e n . Sen. Billy Doug Davis Hewes of Hernando as chairman of the Appro-

priations Committee. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Dean Kirby of Pearl would keep that post. With no Democrat running and only a token presence by the Reform Party, the lieutenant governor’s race will be decided, for all practical purposes, by the two-man Republican primary on Aug. 2 between Hewes and State Treasurer Tate Reeves.

Operation Merlin

40 YEARS AGO: 1971 Groundbreaking ceremonies are held for the new sanctuary of Highland Baptist Church. • Charles Turner dies. • Mr. and Mrs. Morris Allen, and children, are visiting in Lexington, Miss.

30 YEARS AGO: 1981

President oversteps on national security “Then there was MERLIN. On paper, MERLIN was supposed to stunt the development of Tehran’s nuclear program by sending Iran’s weapons experts down the wrong technical path. The CIA believed that once the Iranians had the blueprints and studied them, they would believe the designs were usable and so would start to build an atom bomb based on the flawed designs. But Tehran would get a big surprise when its scientists tried to explode their new bomb. “Instead of a mushroom cloud, the Iranian scientists would witness a disappointing fizzle.” That’s from Chapter 9 of “State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration,” published in January 2006 and written by New York Times reporter James Risen. In January, Jeffrey Sterling, a former CIA case agent was arraigned in St. Louis on charges filed in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va. He is charged with nine counts related to leaking classified information about

Operation Merlin. Because Risen was the first journalist to report about the operation and is known to have had extensive contact with Sterling, it is obvious that Risen was the leakee. But obvious isn’t good enough for the Obama Justice Department. In May, prosecutors subpoenaed Risen to testify in the case. Under Justice Department procedures, the attorney general must sign off on any subpoena of a journalist. Policy says the journalist’s testimony must be “essential to directly establishing innocence or guilt.” It’s clearly not essential in this case, but the Obama administration’s posture on national security cases would make former Vice President Dick Cheney proud. It has waffled on closing Guantanamo and trying its detainees. It flouted habeas corpus and humane treatment rules for alleged WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning. It defended the National Security Agency’s warrantless surveillance program.

Now it is going after Sterling for allegedly revealing details of Operation Merlin, which was carried out in 2000 under the Clinton administration. It might have been the CIA’s silliest operation since the 1967 plot to assassinate Cuban President Fidel Castro with an exploding cigar. Merlin (a name borrowed from a John Carre spy novel) backfired. Not only did the Iranians quickly discover the nuclear plans were flawed, but they also were able to reverse-engineer the plans to broaden their nuclear knowledge. Risen’s reporting on national security issues has made him a Pulitzer Prize winner. It has served the nation’s interests by disclosing how intrusive U.S. intelligence agencies have become. As a candidate for president, Barack Obama said, “I reject the view that the president may do whatever he deems necessary to protect national security.” What happened to that guy?

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Jeff Stahler

Young people lagging when it comes to history As an American history teacher, I am very concerned about the lack of knowledge or interest by our students in the history of our nation. There are two great opportunities for our young people to increase their interest in history and to become more knowledgeable citizens. The Junior Historical Society helps students learn more about the history of our great country with guest speakers, field trips and the National History Day. This summer, I had the opportunity to travel to the National History Day at the University of Maryland with five of my students and their families. They were competing at the national level in the junior division after winning at their statelevel competition. Students from Mississippi won in the senior division at the national level. Thirty-four students represented Mississippi. There were more than 3,000 stu-

Students competed in the National History Day event in five categories: Drama/play, documentary, paper, website and exhibit. Students had a great time and made numerous new friends. There were many evening activities and daily tours of Washington, D.C. There was a teachers’ workshop. This was the olympics for history students. The state-

level event in early spring at the University of Southern Mississippi is excellent. The program at the national level was incredible. I have been to many events with young people, but this was the very best. Now is the time for all social studies teachers in Mississippi to start preparing their history students for this year’s National History Day state-level event in March at the University of Southern Mississippi. It would be very sad when the roll of states is called at the

National History Day at the University of Maryland in June 2012, and Mississippi is not called.

Be thankful at Eagle Lake Eagle Lake residents, I am not sure how to feel about some of the residents at Eagle Lake; I would say ashamed is one way to feel. Eagle Lake was not the only community affected by the great flood of 2011, yet the residents of Eagle Lake are the only ones you

hear squawking about a class action lawsuit against the Corps of Engineers for letting water in to the lake to equalize the pressure on the levee, in an effort to save homes and lives. It was clear the Corps made the right decision since not one home nor life was harmed by the flood. Do they not remember what happened in Japan, how many homes, businesses and lives were lost in a flash? Eagle Lake residents should be grateful to the Corps and all the contractors who worked around the clock to save their homes instead of complaining about their fishing piers, that probably needed repair or replacement before the flood. Eagle Lake was blessed and they should realize that. Are they not the ones who chose to live and build in a flood zone? Martin Mendrop Vicksburg

Ford remembered as role model, women’s rights advocate PALM DESERT, Calif. (AP) — She was more than just a first lady, admirers said of Betty Ford. She was a role model for every presidential wife who followed her into the White House, not to mention a tireless advocate for women’s rights and other causes that improved the lives of Betty Ford millions. Ford, who died Friday at 93, was memorialized Tuesday by some 800 friends and family members, including no fewer than four current and former first ladies

Steve Ford, left, comforts his brother, Jack, during the funeral for their mother, former first lady Betty Ford at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church Tuesday in Palm Desert, Calif. and one ex-president. Today she was to leave her adopted Southern California

home for the last time, headed to Grand Rapids, Mich., where her husband, President Gerald

R. Ford, who died in 2006, is buried. “Or as she called him, my boyfriend of 58 years of marriage,” said her son Michael Ford during a two-hour service at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in this desert resort town. A second service was scheduled today in Michigan at which Lynne Cheney, wife of former Vice President Dick Cheney, was to speak. Among those expected to attend was former first lady Barbara Bush. On Thursday, Ford is to be interred at her husband’s presidential library on what would have been his 98th birthday. Following Tuesday’s Cali-

fornia service, members of the public were invited into the church for a viewing that was scheduled to last until midnight. During the service, former first lady Rosalynn Carter and journalist Cokie Roberts, among others, hailed Ford as a force of nature whose boundless energy and enthusiasm, coupled with a steadfast determination to do what was right, pushed the country toward a commitment to equal rights for women and other causes. Ford, the accidental first lady, was thrust into the White House when Richard Nixon resigned as president on Aug. 9, 1974, and her husband, then vice president, assumed

the nation’s highest office. Although she always said she never expected nor wanted to be first lady, she quickly embraced the role. Her candidness, unheard of at the time, helped bring such previously taboo subjects as breast cancer into the public discussion as she openly discussed her own battle with the disease. She was equally outspoken about her struggles with drug and alcohol abuse, and her spearheading of the creation of the Betty Ford Center to treat those diseases has benefited thousands. The former first lady mapped out plans for her funeral well in advance, including who would deliver her eulogies.

debt showdown

Republican proposes giving Obama new muscle as talks grind WASHINGTON (AP) — Budget talks between President Barack Obama and his GOP rivals are at a frustrating standstill, leading a top Republican to launch a long-shot proposal to give Obama sweeping new powers to muscle through an increase in the government’s debt limit without the approval of a bitterly divided Congress. Lawmakers were to return to the White House for another negotiating session today. A two-hour session Tuesday produced no progress after a day of poisonous exchanges between Democrats and Republicans. Saying he didn’t see a path to an agreement so long as Democrats insist on revenue increases, Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky offered a backup plan that would, in effect, guarantee Obama requests for new gov-

‘I had hoped all year long that the opportunity presented by his request of us to raise the debt ceiling would generate a bipartisan agreement that would begin to get our house in order. I still hope it will. But we’re certainly not going to send a signal to the markets and the American people that default is an option.’ Sen. Mitch McConnell ernment borrowing authority unless Congress musters vetoproof majorities to deny him. McConnell’s plan immediately ran into stiff opposition among Tea Party conservatives and seemed unlikely to pass the House, but neither the White House nor House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, dismissed it out of hand. “I think everybody agrees there needs to be a backup plan if we can’t come to an agreement,” Boehner said in a Fox

News Channel interview Tuesday afternoon. “And frankly, I think Mitch has done good work.” Under McConnell’s proposal, Obama could request — and likely secure — increases of up to $2.5 trillion in the government’s borrowing authority in three separate installments over the coming year as long as he simultaneously proposes spending cuts of greater size. The debt limit increases would take effect unless blocked by

Congress under special rules that would require speedy action — and even then Obama could exercise his authority to veto such legislation. But the president’s spending would have no guarantee of receiving a vote. “The American people elected (McConnell) to serve as a check on Obama’s appetite for out-ofcontrol spending, not to write him a blank check to continue the binge,” said conservative activist Brett Bozell. “It’s these

sort of shenanigans that got Republicans thrown out of power in 2006.” McConnell made his proposal public a few hours before Obama presided over his third meeting in as many days with congressional leaders searching for a way to avoid a default and possible financial crisis. Democratic officials who participated in the session said Obama did not reject McConnell’s idea, but said it’s not his preferred approach. A statement issued later by press secretary Jay Carney said the president “continues to believe that our focus must remain on seizing this unique opportunity to come to agreement on significant, balanced deficit reduction.” McConnell’s plan was hatched out of frustration that Congress and Obama are deadlocked as

the clock ticks toward an Aug. 2 deadline for a market-rattling default on U.S. obligations. “I had hoped all year long that the opportunity presented by his request of us to raise the debt ceiling would generate a bipartisan agreement that would begin to get our house in order,” McConnell said. “I still hope it will. But we’re certainly not going to send a signal to the markets and the American people that default is an option.” Republicans are demanding $2 trillion-plus in budget cuts as the price for a commensurate increase in the government’s ability to continue to borrow more than 40 cents of every dollar it spends. Both Republicans and Obama see the politically toxic debt limit vote as a way to seize an opportunity to cut future deficits.

House GOP fails to turn off light bulb energy standards WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans on Tuesday failed to stop the enactment of new energy-saving standards for light bulbs they portrayed as yet another example of big government interfering in people’s lives. The GOP bill to overturn the standards set to go into effect next year fell short of the twothirds majority needed for passage. The vote was 233-193. For many Republicans, those

newfangled curly fluorescent light bulbs were the last straw, pushed by an overreaching government that’s forcing people to buy health insurance, prodding them to get more fuel-efficient cars and sticking its nose into too many places. Their legislation would have kept the marketplace clear for the cheap, energy-wasting bulbs that have changed little since Thomas Edison invented them in 1879.

JACKSON — A hearing has been scheduled in the Mississippi attorney general’s lawsuit against the administrator of BP’s $20 billion oil spill fund over access to claims filed by coastal residents. Jim Hood said Tuesday he’s tried to negotiate with the fund’s administrator, Washington lawyer Kenneth Feinberg. He said he’s seeking to

make the process more transparent so people will know if Feinberg is looking out for the best interests of oil spill victims or BP. Hood filed the lawsuit Tuesday in Hinds County Chancery Court in Jackson. A hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 15. Feinberg said Tuesday that, “Our lawyers will respond in the ordinary course.” He had no other immediate comment.

On balance, if they are a local organization and you are comfortable with them, I have no problem. Oftentimes, there might be banking services that a traditional bank will offer that the credit union does not and sometimes the reverse of that is true. It’s a matter of personal choice, but certainly there is a lot to recommend, credit unions as well as a more traditional account. It might be that a credit union doesn’t issue credit cards but your bank does. You see where I am going with that. You have to compare each service that you use.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Netflix has provoked the ire of some of its 23 million subscribers by raising its prices by as much as 60 percent for those who want to rent DVDs by mail and watch video on the Internet. The company is separating the two options so that subscribers who want both will have to buy separate plans totaling at least $16 per month. Netflix Inc. had been bundling both options in a single package, available for as low as $10 per month. New subscribers will have to pay the new prices immediately. The changes take effect Sept. 1 for Netflix’s current customers. Netflix isn’t changing the $8

monthly price for an Internet streaming-only option, which the company began offering late last year. But instead of charging $2 more for a plan that also offers one DVD at a time by mail, the company will charge $8 for a comparable DVD-only plan. That brings the total to $16. Those who want to rent up to two DVDs at a time with streaming will pay $20 per month, or 33 percent more. Those wanting three DVDs at a time with streaming will pay $24 per month, or 20 percent more. When Netflix unveiled the streaming-only option, it also raised the rates for its most popular DVD rental plans from $1 to $3 per month.

Let them eat healthier Don’t call us old yet, Burger King, Chili’s, others set boomers say in survey new standards for kids’ menus WASHINGTON (AP) — Baby boomers say wrinkles aren’t so bad and they’re not that worried about dying. Just don’t call them “old.” The generation that once powered a youth movement isn’t ready to symbolize the aging of America, even as its first members are becoming eligible for Medicare. A new poll finds three-quarters of all baby boomers still consider themselves middle-aged or younger, and that includes most of the boomers who are ages 57-65. Younger adults call 60 the start of old age, but baby boomers are pushing that number back, according to the Associated Press-LifeGoesStrong. com poll. The median age they cite is 70. And a quarter of boomers insist you’re not old until you’re 80. “In my 20s, I would have thought the 60s were bad, but they’re not so bad at all,” says 64-year-old Lynn Brown, a retired legal assistant and grandmother of 11 living near Phoenix in Apache Junction, Ariz. The 77 million boomers are

celebrating their 47th through 65th birthdays this year. Overall, they’re upbeat about their futures. Americans born in the population explosion after World War II are more likely to be excited about the positive aspects of aging, such as retirement, than worried about the negatives, like declining health. A third say they feel confident about growing older, almost twice as many as find it frustrating or sad. Sixteen percent report they’re happy about aging, about equal to the number who say they’re afraid. Most expect to live longer than their parents. Only 18 percent say they worry about dying. Another 22 percent are “moderately” concerned about it. More than two-thirds expect to live to at least age 76; 1 in 6 expects to make it into the 90s. And about half predict a better quality of life for themselves than their parents experienced as they aged. But a minority of boomers — about a fourth — worry things will be harder for them than for the previous generation.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Parents seeking healthier restaurant meals for their kids can start to look beyond chicken nuggets and macaroni-andcheese. At least 19 large restaurant chains — including Burger King, Chili’s, IHOP and Friendly’s — were announcing today that they will include healthier options on their children’s menus. At least 15,000 restaurant locations will focus on increasing servings of fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains and low-fat dairy. The items will have less fats, sugars and sodium. Less healthy foods like burgers and fries will still be on the menu, but the restaurants say they will do more to promote healthier options. Chili’s, for example, will highlight a chicken sandwich with a side of pineapple or mandarin oranges on their kids’ menu. Burger King has recently reformulated children’s chicken nuggets so they include less sodium, and employees taking orders will ask if customers want health-

ier apple fries instead of the standard “fries with that?” The effort is part of a new National Restaurant Association initiative to give kids more healthy options at restaurants and to make it easier for parents to find those options. Some of the items are already on menus, but restaurants will advertise them more prominently and flag the healthier menu items to make ordering easier. To be part of the program, restaurants must include at least one kids’ menu item that is 600 calories or less and meets other nutritional requirements. A side dish worth less than 200 calories must also be included. “This could provide a great push toward healthier offerings at restaurants,” said Robert Post, the Agriculture Department official in charge of developing the department’s dietary guidelines, which came out earlier this year. Those urged Americans to eat less salt. “We hope this is a trend toward new items and vol-

untary reformulations,” Post said. The companies signing up for the initiative are Au Bon Pain, Bonefish Grill, Burger King, Burgerville, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Chevys, Chili’s, Corner Bakery Cafe, Cracker Barrel, Denny’s, El Pollo Loco, Friendly’s, IHOP, Joe’s Crab Shack, Outback Steakhouse, Silver Diner, Sizzler, T-Bones Great American Eatery and zpizza. Joe Taylor of Chili’s said the company has responded to consumer demands for healthier foods. While diners looking for a healthier meal used to have to ask for substitutions, they now have more options. “We’ve seen our guests customize their meals to a greater degree when they are looking to hold the mayo or add the broccoli,” Taylor said. Patrick Lenow of IHOP said the restaurant will add two new children’s menu items because of the effort, including pancakes with fruit and scrambled eggs with fruit.

The Mississippi crested on May 19 at 57.1 feet, 14.1 feet above flood level, but the school remained dry after an earthen dam was built

around its perimeter. Principal Randy Broome said the school had no damage, but playground equipment and sidewalks are to get a deep scrub-down before students return. The Culkin Volunteer Fire Department will help spray the equipment this week, Broome said. Daniels, an 11-year educator, said she will continue preparing her classroom with the help of her three daughters, two of whom also teach in the district. “We provide as much help

as needed,” said Kenyatta Washington, a Vicksburg High School math teacher who will begin preparing her classroom Aug. 1. “I’m helping Mom today, and she’ll come to help me,” said Stacy Chambers, a thirdgrade teacher at Sherman Avenue. Chambers plans to return to Sherman Avenue next week. “I just finished teaching summer school, so I’m getting a little break before I go back,” she said.

Afghanistan Retired CIA officer under fire Stop violence, Karzai pleads in Abu Ghraib prisoner’s death at his half-brother’s funeral KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) — Pushing through a ring of his security men, President Hamid Karzai climbed into his slain half brother’s freshly dug grave today and sobbed alongside the coffin at a funeral attended by thousands of mourners. Overcome with grief, the president appealed to his countrymen to stop the violence. Hours later, a bomb attack killed five French soldiers and an Afghan civilian in the east of the country. The assassination of Ahmed Wali Karzai, who was shot at point blank range by a close confidant a day earlier, left Afghanistan’s leader without a powerful ally in the southern province of Kandahar, the birthplace of the Taliban and site of recent military offensives by the U.S.-led military coalition. The radical Islamic movement claimed responsibility

WASHINGTON (AP) — A CIA officer who oversaw the agency’s interrogation program at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and pushed for approval to use increasingly harsh tactics has come under scrutiny in a federal war crimes investigation of the death of a prisoner, witnesses say. Steve Stormoen, now retired, supervised an unofficial program in which the CIA inter-

rogated men without recording their names. The “ghosting” program was unsanctioned by the CIA. In early 2003, CIA lawyers expressly prohibited the agency from running its own interrogations, current and former intelligence officials said. The lawyers said agency officers could be present during military interrogations and add their expertise but, under the laws of war,

the military must always have the lead. Yet, in November 2003, CIA officers brought a prisoner, Manadel al-Jamadi, to Abu Ghraib and, instead of turning him over to the Army, interrogated him alone. Within an hour, he was dead. Stormoen, 56, received a letter of reprimand for his role in Abu Ghraib. He has since rejoined the intelligence community as a contractor.

Harrison: Goodell is a ‘devil, a puppet’

NEW YORK (AP) — Heavily fined Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison calls NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a “crook” and a “devil,” among other insults, in a magazine article. The 2008 AP Defensive Player of the Year hasn’t been shy about ripping the league after he was docked $100,000 for illegal hits last season. In the August issue of Men’s Journal, his rants against Goodell reach another level of wrath. “I hate him and will never respect him,” Harrison told the magazine. His other descriptions of the commissioner include an anti-gay slur, “stupid,”“puppet” and “dictator.” If the Steelers had defeated the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl, Harrison said, he would have whispered in Goodell’s ear durJames ing the Harrison trophy ceremony: “Why don’t you quit and do something else, like start your own league in flag football?” Harrison also criticizes other NFL execs, Patriotsturned-commentators Rodney Harrison and Tedy Bruschi (”clowns”), Houston’s Brian Cushing (”juiced out of his mind”) — and even teammates.

Gators leave for D.C. By Steve Wilson swilson@vicksburgpost.com

There were plenty of hugs. A prayer for safety with some emphatic amens. A pep talk and some cheers. But of course, nothing was more in evidence than an air of excitement. And relief as the charter bus carrying the Vicksburg team to the Mel Kiper Jr. 7-on-7 National Championship tournament in Washington, D.C., rolled away from the Memorial Stadium parking lot Tuesday. The bus received a sendoff worthy of departing heroes as the Warren County Sheriff’s Department gave it an escort to the county line. The departure fanfare was a reminder of how the hopes and dreams of an entire community, kept alive by a marathon fund-raising effort, were embodied in the team, that will begin play Thursday at the 32-team tournament. The excitement was infectious. When asked to a man what part of the nation’s capital they wanted to see, the White House was the most popular answer. “I want to see (President Barack) Obama,” James Humes said. “I want to see everything. I’m just thankful about going on this trip. I feel really excited, like

It’s a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” The guest of honor at the departure was local business owner David Hyde, whose $5,200 donation helped push the Gator fund-raising over the top with just a day to spare. While he has no ties to Vicksburg High School, his wife (Laura, class of 1976) and daughter (Amelia, class of 2009) graduated from there. “This is just a great

opportunity and how to not get behind this. I thought I should be tossing some more money into David Vicksburg, Hyde a place that I love, and here we are,” Hyde said. “I don’t want this to be about me. I’m just happy they’re getting this opportunity to do something like this.”

For most on the bus, the trip was the first time they had ventured that far north, or even out of the state. “Probably, most of us, I’d bet, have never been to D.C.,” Tavares Jackson said. “I’m really excited about seeing the Smithsonian. At first, I never would’ve expected us to go to D.C. It’s not every day that you could get to play some of the best teams in See VHS, Page B3.

Mekus, Pro-Am get rained out again By Jeff Byrd jbyrd@vickskburgpost.com MADISON — Afternoon thunderstorms forced the cancellation of the Viking Classic Junior Pro-Am Tuesday but at least Vicksburg’s Nick Mekus did not go home empty-handed. Mekus won a new wedge in a drawing for the junior players at Annandale Golf Club, site of the PGA Tour’s Viking Classic, which begins Thursday morning. Mekus said he won’t waste any time trying out the new club. “I’m going to use it (today) in Tupelo,” Mekus said. “It’s an awesome-looking club.” Mekus and Warren Cen-

tral junior golfer Parker Rutherford left Annandale for Tupelo, where they begin play today in the Nick next MissisMekus sippi Junior Golf Association event — The Pros of Tommorrow Tournament. “It’s a really good tournament and a lot of college coaches will be there,” Rutherford said of the tournament. Rutherford did not have enough MJGA points to play in the Viking Junior ProAm, but took Chris Ingram’s place as Mekus’ caddy.

Mekus’ group was slated to play late Tuesday afternoon with professional player Mark Brooks, the winner of the 1996 PGA Tournament. Play got under way at 2 p.m., but thunderstorms rolled through Annandale by 4:30 and caused a delay. After 90 minutes, Viking Classic officials called off the Junior Pro-Am. Mekus was disappointed. Instead, Mekus will get a chance to try out his new wedge at Tupelo. It will be a key tournament for both Mekus and Rutherford. “Right now, Nick is third in the points standings and I’m fourth,” Rutherford said. “If either of us were to win it, we’d move up to the top spot.

Nick Cobb of Madison is the current leader. He’s played in every tournament and has played really well.” Mekus has had a solid summer after winning medalist honors at the Class 1A State Tournament in Natchez in early May. The St. Aloysius junior has had three top five finishes in MJGA Tournaments, including a fourth two weeks ago in Cleveland. Rutherford won the Cleveland tournament last week. “I played four tournaments early in the summer and played bad in all four of them,” Rutherford said. “Then I go to Cleveland and play great and win it. My game came back.”

NEW YORK — Calling the players’ offer “fair for both sides,” star quarterbacks Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees — plaintiffs in the antitrust suit against the NFL — said today “it is time” to wrap up negotiations on a deal to end the league’s lockout. Brady, Manning and Brees spoke as a group publicly for the first time with talks in a critical phase, four months into the league’s first work stoppage since 1987. Players and owners were gathering this morning at a Manhattan office building for the latest round of discussions. Deadlines are coming up next week to get training camps and the preseason started on time. Although it seems the sides have agreed on the basic elements of how to split more than $9 billion in annual revenues, among the key sticking points recently have been how to structure a new rookie salary system and what free agency will look like. In a statement released to The Associated Press via the NFL Players Association, New England’s Brady, Indianapolis’ Manning and New Orleans’ Brees said: “We believe the overall proposal made by the players is fair for both sides and it is time to get this deal done.” The statement continued: “This is the time of year we as players turn our attention to the game on the field. We hope the owners feel the same way.” Brady, Manning and Brees are among 10 players who are named plaintiffs in the antitrust suit that is pending in federal court in Minnesota. That class-action lawsuit was filed March 11, hours after federally mediated negotiations to arrive at a new collective bargaining agreement broke down, and the old labor contract expired. The NFLPA immediately dissolved itself, meaning players no longer were protected under labor law but instead were allowed to take their chances under antitrust law. On March 12, the owners imposed a lockout on the players, a right management has to shut down a business when a CBA expires. During the lockout, there can be no communication between the teams and current NFL players; no players — including those drafted in April — can be signed; teams won’t pay for players’ health insurance. A series of court rulings followed, including one last week from an appeals court that said the lockout could continue. Talks resumed in May, overseen by a court-appointed mediator, U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan, who is on vacation this week. Boylan ordered both sides to speak with him in Minneapolis next Tuesday.

BASKETBALL NBA players get escrow money returned to them NEW YORK — Locked-out NBA players will have their escrow money returned to them for the first time because salaries fell below 57 percent of league revenues last season, two people with knowledge of the situation said. The players will get about $160 million back when a final audit is completed later this month. Eight percent of player salaries have been withheld each season since the 1999 collective bargaining agreement to ensure that players don’t exceed their guarantee of 57 percent of league revenues. They had surpassed that limit each season since, so the money was kept. But with revenues up during a successful 2010-11 season, salary costs will fall short of that mark for the first time, though it isn’t known yet by how far.

Fielder paces NL to All-Star victory PHOENIX (AP) — Heath Bell sprinted in from the bullpen and slid across the infield grass, tearing up the turf just short of the mound. It was that type of night: The National League never stopped moving. “I told some guys I wanted to have fun this All-Star game and needed some ideas,” Bell said. The NL had all the good ideas Tuesday night. Prince Fielder hit a three-run homer and Roy Halladay combined with nine relievers on a sixhitter in a 5-1 victory Tuesday night, giving the senior circuit its first two-game winning streak since the mid-1990s. “It’s hard to beat great pitching and a three-run homer,” NL manager Bruce Bochy said. Brian Wilson got two outs and earned the save, just as he did for the Giants skipper when San Francisco won the championship last November. “It felt like a little bit like last year when you come into a pressure situation and you try to do as clutch a performance as you can,” Wilson said. Wilson sounded more i mp r e s s e d w i t h B e l l ’s theatrics. “I think he nailed it,” Wilson said. “I don’t know if I’d make it. I think I’d slip, ankle, flip, next thing you know I can’t pitch.” The NL claimed home-field advantage in the World Series, its only blemish being Adrian Gonzalez’s homer in the fourth off Cliff Lee. Fielder connected in the bottom half of the inning against C.J. Wilson. With several big names as no-shows, the AL lost more than the game. Boston right-hander Josh Beckett warmed up, then bowed out because of a sore knee. Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera left after hurting the oblique muscle in his side while swinging. “We are not going to use not having Josh as an excuse,”

The rising senior could also draw national interest from college coaches with a strong performance at the tournament. “I never thought we were going to make this trip, money-wise, but thankfully, we’ve got people in this community who were willing to

National League first baseman Prince Fielder of the Milwaukee Brewers is congratulated by manager Bruce Bochy of the San Francisco Giants and Ryan Braun of the MilwauAL manager Ron Washington said. “I think when you look at the ballgame, the bottom line is the National League pitching was outstanding. You know, we ended up giving up one big inning and they didn’t give up any.” Even before the injuries, many stars were missing. Justin Verlander, Felix Hernandez, CC Sabathia and other aces who started Sunday were ineligible, Alex Rodriguez was among those on the disabled list and Derek Jeter wanted a break. In all, 16 of 84 All-Stars dropped out. Tyler Clippard got the win despite allowing a single to his only batter, Adrian Beltre. Clayton Kershaw, Jair Jurrjens, Craig Kimbrel, Jonny Venters, Joel Hanrahan also relieved and combined to keep the NL ahead. Fielder won the MVP award after becoming the first Brewers player to homer in an AllStar game. The World Series edge could help him later, with

Milwaukee and St. Louis tied for the Central lead at the break. A half-hour after the win, the Brewers announced they had acquired former AllStar closer Francisco Rodriguez in a trade with the New York Mets. “That was part of the message, how important it was for us, and how important the game was: Do it again for the National League champion,” Bochy said. Fielder, son of former AllStar Cecil Fielder, was booed during the Home Run Derby a day earlier. He was the NL captain for the Derby, and local fans were angry he didn’t select Arizona’s Justin Upton. “I didn’t take it personal at all,” Fielder said. “I understood it. No hard feelings.” Andre Ethier singled in a run off rookie reliever Jordan Walden in the fifth, and slimmed-down Pablo Sandoval had an RBI double off Brandon League in the seventh.

pitch in to help,” Cooksey said. “It’s going to be really good for us going up against the nation’s best competition. We’re going to find out how good we really are.” The Gators feel that after winning just three games in two seasons, this year’s stellar summer in 7-on-7 play will translate into more wins when they put on pads and helmets in August. “I’m so excited about showing off what skills I have and how talented our team is,” A.J. Stamps said. “We’re looking forward to making

the playoffs this year. We’re going to be way better than we were last year.” As for what they intended to do to pass the time on a 16-hour bus ride, answers ranged from watching some movies, munching on some snacks and watching the scenery. But the most popular answer was one that the team will need plenty of: shuteye. “I’m going to sleep,” Jackson said. “I don’t know what the rest of the guys are going to do, but count on me getting lots of sleep.”

The NL dashed around the bases and swiped three bags, all in one inning and two by Starlin Castro. In all, the Nationals have enjoyed their best run since taking three in a row from 1994-96 — they had lost 12 straight games played to a decision before a 3-1 victory at Anaheim last year. Before a crowd of 47,994 that included Muhammad Ali, this was no desert classic — except for fans of pitching, which has become resurgent as the Steroids Era has receded. Scoring in the first half dropped to its lowest level in 19 years and the major league batting average shrunk to its smallest midseason figure since 1985. The All-Star homers were the first since J.D. Drew connected at Yankee Stadium three years ago. The AL finished with six hits for the second straight year and its two-year total of two runs is its lowest since 1995-96. “Just a coincidence,” Curtis Granderson said.

Charges against Foxy Brown dismissed A judge on Tuesday dropped charges that rapper Foxy Brown violated a court order by mooning her neighbor after the woman told prosecutors she would not testify at the trial. Assistant District Attorney Robert Isdith said he had tried to meet with the neighbor, Irene Raymond, in the weeks before the trial and didn’t get anywhere. When he finally got in Foxy touch with her, she said she didn’t want to purBrown sue the case, he said. Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, pleaded not guilty to criminal contempt and her trial was slated to begin Tuesday, following a dressing-down at her last court hearing by State Supreme Court Justice John Walsh when she appeared hours late.

Kunis says yes to Marine date request Thanks to the power of the Internet, a Marine’s YouTube request to go on a date with Mila Kunis got through to the actress, who said yes. The 27-year-old “Black Swan” star was asked whether she knew about Sgt. Scott Moore’s video asking her to accompany him to the Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, N.C., in November. The annual event marks the founding of the Marines in 1775. “Hey Mila. It’s Sergeant Moore, but you can call me Scott,” he said from a base in Afghanistan. “I just wanted to take a moment out of my day Mila Kunis to invite you to the Marine Corps Ball on November 18th in Greenville, North Carolina, with yours truly. So take a second, think about it and get back to me.” “We’re going to make this happen, sir,” she said, looking into the camera. “I’m with you.” Further details on whether Kunis has taken additional steps to confirm she would attend the ball remained unclear.

Failed drug test delays DMX’s release The rapper known as DMX will have to spend at least an extra week in an Arizona state prison for failing a drug test.

He was credited with 117 days he had already spent behind bars. Arizona Department of Corrections spokesman Barrett Marson confirmed DMX was due to be released from a prison in Yuma today. His new release date is July 19.

Sticky situation: Truck spills 14M bees Cleanup crews in Idaho have finished clearing honey and an estimated 14 million bees that got loose after a delivery truck overturned on a highway. Fremont County Sheriff deputies said several workers were stung during the first few hours of the cleanup Sunday. And some observers reported seeing a strange black cloud and roaring noise above the spill area before realizing it was a massive swarm of bees. Authorities said a truck was hauling the bees from California to North Dakota when the driver veered off the shoulder, tipping more than 400 hive boxes and honey.

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Hold off on making any important agreements with another. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) —If anybody thinks you’re an easy mark, this person will try to dump his or her work in your lap. Don’t be had. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Depending too heavily on Lady Luck instead of your own abilities will guarantee you to fail at whatever it is you’re trying to pull off. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Just because someone has a title doesn’t necessary make him or her bigger than life. It only defines the job the person is assigned to do. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — For the sake of peace, don’t let yourself be drawn into a debate with someone who loves to argue. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — It’s wise to abide by your instincts and perceptions about participating in any kind of financial debate with someone who always thinks he or she is right. It’ll be a lost cause. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Underestimating the competition is always a mistake. Thus, regardless of how inept you think someone is, take him or her seriously. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Think twice before absentmindedly being unrealistically generous to someone who doesn’t deserve it. There’s a good chance that on impulse you’ll give away something you’ll regret. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — If you have a choice, avoid any gathering where someone who makes you feel uncomfortable is likely to be in attendance. Aries (March 21-April 19) — It would be best not to depend on another to do something for you that you know the person really doesn’t want to do. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Don’t try to impose your views on someone who you know will be unreceptive to what you have to say. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — The handling of your resources isn’t likely to be your strong suit today, so it behooves you to be as prudent as you can.

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m a mother responding to baby sitters who are underpaid and who are being asked to bring their own snacks. I have three children, and I pay my sitters $3.50 per hour — plus a little extra if I am out later than expected or if the toys are all picked up when I get home. When my children beg me to call a certain baby sitter, I know that she will do a good job and should be rewarded.

Dear A.F. and B.: Your pastor’s behavior gives new meaning to the term “bully pulpit.” Rather than approach him yourself, you and others who feel as you do should take your complaint to the governing board of your church. And if that doesn’t fix the problem, you should seriously

consider finding another “flock” to join because it appears your shepherd has lost his way.

Cause of jaw swelling is elusive for gardener Dear Dr. Gott: I am an active 90-year-old man with a large garden, yard, and a couple of fruit trees. Yes, I was raised on a farm. In April 2009, I woke up one morning with a swelling in my left jaw and cheek. I went to my family doctor for an examination. He suggested I go to the local dentist for an X-ray, which I did. The dentist said it acted like temporomandibular joint disorder but he doubted it, so he gave me some Diflunisal. Later that week, I went for two chiropractic treatments, and in a week the swelling was gone. I had no problem except for numbness in my back lower jaw. Then in April this year, the numbness moved forward on my jaw and to the side of my face again. I contacted an ENT specialist, who gave me a CT scan. He reported nothing wrong with my sinuses and said I was just going to have to live with it. The numbness increased and moved to under my nose. Seeking relief, I went for six acupuncture treatments that gave temporary relief. I went to a TMJ sleep specialist, who took X-rays of my teeth and bite pattern. Naturally, the left side showed very little bite pressure. The numbness went up to my cheekbone and around my eye. With no definite conclusion, he suggested I consult a neurologist, who sent me for an MRI that was negative. He gave me a prescription for gabapentin, which does subdue the numb feeling. My medications are metoprolol, Doxazosin and Lisinopril, vitamin D3, vitamin E, fish oil and flaxseed oil, plus a general group of vitamins a couple of times a week. I know this letter is long,

ASK THE DOCTOR Dr. PETER

GOTT

but any relief you can provide would certainly be appreciated. Dear Reader: This is puzzling. My guess is the swelling might be caused by an allergy or infection, yet you have already seen every specialist that might zero in on your complaint. April appears to be your weak month, which makes me wonder if you are allergic to something that begins to sprout at that time, to sprays you use early in the season, or to fertilizer you inhale while preparing your crops. Herbs and supplements are not regulated the way prescription drugs are. You might be allergic to one specific ingredient in your “general group” without even knowing it. You don’t appear to exhibit the common signs of TMJ, so I think we can rule that out. A referral to another neurologist might be in order. Gabapentin works to block nerve signals and you have had positive results, which indicates a likely nerve problem.

Q

Q

What has Tom Burlinson, the star of The Man From Snowy River, done since that movie?

On Jerseylicious, Tracy and Olivia are always fighting. Is it real, or just for TV?

—Cait Castellano, Palm Beach, Fla.

—Mercedes Inda, Freeport, Ill.

Burlinson, 55, who was born in Canada and grew up in Australia, worked in TV and film for 15 years after Snowy River’s release in 1982. A fan of Frank Sinatra since childhood, he sang the voice of young Sinatra in the 1992 miniseries Sinatra and for several years toured as the star of a Sinatra tribute. Last year he created a new touring musical, Now We’re Swingin’, celebrating the hits of Sinatra, Nat “King” Cole, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and Bobby Darin at clubs and theaters across Australia. The father of three will star later this year in The Cup, a movie about the 2002 Melbourne Cup horse race. The Columbia Pictures movie logo depicts Lady Liberty.

Q

Who’s the red-haired woman depicted in the opening of Columbia Pictures movies? She wears a white dress and a blue shawl and holds a torch. —Beverly Talleni, Hot Springs, Ark.

Since the famous Columbia Pictures logo first appeared in 1924, it’s been modified numerous times, and dozens of women claimed to have been used as its “Lady Liberty” model. The movie company reports it doesn’t have records of the models who posed for the logo over the years. The logo’s current look, animated with moving clouds, a glowing torch and a ring of shimmering light, was based on a modeling session with a Louisiana homemaker, Jenny Joseph, in 1992.

Q

Have any major movies ever filmed on location in Alaska? Or is it just too difficult to get there for actors and film crews? —Bill Hamperlin, Richardson, Texas

It’s more than a quick hop from Hollywood, but the 49th state has hosted several movie productions over the years, including The Thing, Insomnia, Runaway Train and Into the Wild. A lot of films and TV shows with Alaska settings are shot elsewhere, including the 2009 movie The Proposal and television’s Men in Trees and Northern Exposure.

Tracy DiMarco (above) and Olivia Blois Sharpe

The spats are real between Tracy DiMarco and Olivia Blois Sharpe, both 23, who work at the Gatsby Salon in New Jersey, the locale of the Style Network reality TV series Jerseylicious. “The

bottom line is that we don’t get along and don’t want to get along,” DiMarco says. “Fights are going to happen. There’s no way, shape or form that they’re scripted.”

Q Is Peter Noone of Herman’s

Hermits still performing? —Jenny Dozier, Hillsboro, Ore.

Indeed! At age 15, the Manchester, England, native became lead vocalist of the Hermits, and the group hit big with the singles “I’m Into Something Good,” “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter” and “There’s a Kind of Hush”—all songs that Noone includes in the 120 shows he expects to perform this year. “I’m still a 16-year-old boy in a 63-year-old body,” he says. “The music can take you back where you were when you heard the song.” Fans can go back to the ’60s with two Herman’s Hermits movies recently released on DVD, Hold On! and Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter. * COVER PHOTO BY GREG CAMPBELL

Melodrama Staging classic American theater // BY MARTI ATTOUN, CONTRIBUTING EDITOR

PHOTOS BY GREG CAMPBELL

AS MUSTACHIOED Richard Murgatroyd strides across the stage at

the Parkside Playhouse in Vicksburg, Miss. (pop. 26,407), spectator Carlie Thomas raises a ruckus with other audience members. Cupping her mouth with her hands, Thomas, 27, yells “BOOO” repeatedly at Murgatroyd, the villainous city slicker. Thomas’ friend, Courtney Owens, 27, takes a deep breath and lets out a loud hiss. Such outbursts are expected—and encouraged—during performances of Gold in the Hills, the longest-running melodrama in the United States. Since 1936, audiences have cheered for innocent farm girl Nell Stanley and homespun hero John Dalton and jeered the conniving Murgatroyd. They’ve sung 1890s songs with the performers between scenes and clapped wildly when good triumphed over evil. “It’s an art form that you don’t see much anymore,” says director John Hesselberg, 49,

about Victorian-era melodramas, which were popular live theater shows from the mid-1800s until the 1920s. The plays feature stereotypical characters, including damsels in distress and deceitful villains, and moralistic messages about social issues, such as the evils of alcohol. “Melodramas involve music and exaggerated gestures and dialogue,” Hesselberg says. During Gold in the Hills, lively piano music accompanies the heroine’s entrance, while menacing minor chords alert the audience when dastardly deeds are afoot. Before microphones, the dramatic music and exaggerated acting helped spectators, especially those seated at the back of the theater, follow the plot toward its // Caption satisfying happy ending.

// Villain Richard Murgatroyd confronts heroine Nell Stanley in the nation’s longest-running melodrama.

Community treasure Gold in the Hills, however, is more than family entertainment each March and July in Vicksburg. The melodrama is a community treasure first staged on March 28, 1936, on a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers barge on the Mississippi River. In 1948, the melodrama relocated to the retired steam-powered Sprague towboat moored along the river. When fire destroyed the Sprague in 1974, the production was staged in a local church until the 250-seat Parkside Playhouse was built in 1978. “The charming thing about Gold in the Hills is that some of the cast members today are children of the original cast members,” says producer Mike Calnan, 62.

HARBOR FREIGHT TOOLS Quality Tools at Ridiculously Low Prices BRIAN KRAMER

100% Satisfaction Guaranteed! • Lifetime Warranty On All Hand Tools!

// The 1890s-era melodrama staged last fall in Julian, Calif., funded college scholarships.

Walter Johnston Jr., 63, who plays dancehall owner Big Mike, attended shows on the Sprague as a young boy and cheered for his father, Walter Johnston Sr., who played the hero and other parts from 1936 until 1964. “It’s a family tradition and a Vicksburg tradition,” says Johnston, who stepped into the hero’s role himself in 1965, and whose children and other family members have acted in the melodrama through the years. William Mathews, 61, likewise joined the cast as a teenager and for 42 years has relished his role as conniving Murgatroyd. “The villain has a lot more gutsy part,” Mathews says. “He’s the mover and shaker in the whole play. I do enjoy the part more, though, without the peanuts,” he says, noting that peanut throwing by the audience ended in 2006 to discourage rodents from infesting the theater. Cheering and jeering endure, though, as Carlie Thomas shouts “NOOO” when the villain steals a hidden stash of cash from the play’s honest farm family. “I’m having so much fun,” she says to her friend, Owens.

Heroes and villains Though Vicksburg lays claim to the nation’s longest-running melodrama, villains sneer and twirl their moustaches at dozens of historical opera houses, community centers and schools across America.

(pop. 1,115), a troupe of professional actors stages melodramas that annually attract 10,000 spectators. “We don’t treat melodrama as tongue-in-cheek, but find old scripts of a true style of melodrama and present it in a more genuine style,” says Mickey

Burdick, 32, art director for the Thin Air Theatre Company. More than 1,500 actors from across the United States auditioned for parts in this summer’s performance of Hazel Kirke, which was a Broadway sensation in the 1880s. Audiences in Cripple Creek and other Western mining towns have enjoyed live theater since the Gold Rush era. “In the West, it was a rowdier time and people weren’t afraid to yell out in the audience,” Burdick says. “You could see a melodrama in the West and in New York, and they were totally different experiences.”

Amateur actors and volunteers keep classic theater alive in Coquille, Ore. (pop. 4,184), where a melodrama has been staged each summer since 1966. “It’s all local talent and I use that term loosely,” says Lynn Kindred, 62, a member of the board of directors of the 215-seat Sawdust Theatre. “People are laughing from the time they get to the theater until the time they leave.” The retired schoolteacher bought his first pair of tap shoes at age 50 so he could participate in the song-and-dance variety show between acts. “The melodrama is part of Coquille’s culture,” Kindred says. “In the latter part of the 19th century and early 20th century, there were traveling melodrama troupes, and shows sometimes lasted five to seven hours.” When the Sawdust Theatre burned in 1994, Coquille residents rallied and garnered $1 million in donations and grants to rebuild the playhouse and rescue the melodrama. In Julian, Calif. (pop. 1,621), the women of the Julian Triangle Club put their usual bake sale fundraiser on the back burner in 1956 to stage a melodrama. Fifty-five years later, the play remains a hit, and last year’s performances of Throw Out the Barrels (Lips that Touch Wine Shall Never Touch Mine) raised $8,000 for college scholarships for graduates of Julian High School. Tryouts are conducted each July, and the show is presented at town hall each weekend in October when the apple crop ripens and vibrant fall colors attract visitors to the historic gold-mining town. “People love coming back every year” to boo and hiss at the villain in the oldtime drama, says club president Shirley DuErmit, 55. ★ A M E R I C A N P R O F I L E .CO M • PAGE 7

Solutions that can help you get out of debt.

CreditGuard of America has been in business for over 20 years and has an A+ rating from the BBB

Every three minutes another person falls behind on credit card debt. It’s no wonder, since every major credit card company has nearly doubled the minimum monthly payment on consumers’ bills. Federal Regulators forced the change because of their concern about the growing mountain of consumer debt, which stands at $2.17 trillion. Many consumers can only pay the minimum payment, which can take up to 30 years to pay off. Now, relief is in sight for millions of Americans. CreditGUARD of America, a non-profit licensed debt management service provider, is making a new program available to lower debt payments and become free of all credit card debt in only three to five years. Consumers need only $2,000 or more in total credit card debt and be at least 30 days behind on any account, to cut their payments by 35% to 50%, and reduce or eliminate interest charges altogether.

Debt Consolidation Dos and Don’ts By Amy Griffith Graydon

“ ” The biggest thing is Th taking stock and being honest with yourself about what you owe.

• Do fix spending habits. Create a budget your family can follow. “The biggest thing is taking stock and being honest with yourself about what you owe,” Lyons says. Cunningham says that many consumers, after taking out a consolidation loan, end up with new credit card debt. “[They] begin thinking, ‘It’s not going to hurt me to charge just a little.’ In practice we have observed over the years that people end up a year from now with their debt consolidation loan payment and their bills charged up again.” • Don’t be afraid to contact creditors.

solidation involves consolidating debt through a loan such as a second mortgage or a home equity line of credit. Debt management involves paying 100 percent of your debt over time, on a schedule that your debt counselor arranges with you and your creditors. Debt settlement, on the other hand, can be risky and make it difficult for you to obtain credit in the future. “With debt settlement, it’s just like it sounds: You settle your debt for cents on the dollar, and that’s reported to the credit bureau,” Cunningham says. “It’s paid by settlement, which of course signals to the future lender that you did not repay your debt in full.” • Do understand the costs. If consolidation seems the best choice for you, be sure to understand all the costs involved. In addition to paying interest on the loan, you may be charged points (one point equals 1 percent of the amount borrowed). On the other hand, such loans may provide tax advantages. ★

AMERICAN ARTISAN

Baseball in Bronze By Marta W. Aldrich, features editor PHOTOS BY G REG B L ACK M AN

SURROUNDED BY photographs of the newest members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Mindy Ellis runs her calloused fingertips across a mound of stiff brown clay that she’s molding into a portrait of a major league star inside her home studio in Bethel Park, Pa. “Right now, it just looks like a bunch of bumpy clay that a preschooler did. However, to me, I already have a sense of the beginnings of a face,” says Ellis, 53, smoothing small lumps that will become the chin, shoulders and cap of 12-time All-Star infielder Roberto Alomar. The sculpture, completed earlier this year, since has been cast into a bronze plaque that will be hung this month in the famed gallery in Cooperstown, N.Y. (pop. 1,852). “It takes me about a week to finish each portrait, but the whole process usually takes months. It’s a high-profile job,” Ellis says of her work for Matthews International, the Pittsburgh-based company that produces the plaques. In her studio in Bethel Park, Pa., Mindy Ellis As the artist who has modeled 60 of the sculpts portraits of baseball’s greatest players, 295 two-dimensional portraits that hang including Philadelphia Phillies infielder Mike in the Hall of Fame, Ellis shapes sculptures Schmidt (right), depicted in her first sculpture of a National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee. that are among the most widely viewed art in America, albeit the most anonymously created.

Other players she’s captured in “Mindy brings to life the character of these clay include Carlton Fisk (2000), Kirby Puckett people,” says Brad Horn, 35, Hall of Fame (2001), Ozzie Smith (2002), Gary Carter (2003), spokesman. “When you view all the plaques Wade Boggs (2005), Cal Ripken Jr. (2007), Tony beginning with Ty Cobb in 1936 through today, Gwynn (2007) and Rickey Henderson (2009). you can see the level of detail contained within She’s also sculpted portraits of former each plaque from the mid-’90s forward.” PAGE 14 • A M E R I C A N P R O F I L E .CO M

Sculptor shapes faces of Hall of Fame inductees The daughter of a master carpenter, Ellis studied wood furniture construction and design at Edinboro (Pa.) University and was sculpting wood for a cabinetmaking shop in Pittsburgh when she was invited to shape a few pieces in clay for Matthews International. Her work was so lifelike that hundreds more projects followed. Portrait work became her signature. “[Mindy has] the ability to transfer from her vision to her hand and the clay the human form and the essence of the image she’s trying to capture,” says Michael Karenbauer, 50, who hired Ellis at Matthews International. “It’s a rare talent.” To sculpt the Hall of Fame portraits, Ellis studies photographs, and occasionally video, supplied by the Hall of Fame, which also provides the 80- to 100-word text that graces the finished plaques. “I try to get the essence of the person, what’s behind their eyes, their features,” Ellis says. “I look at the attitude of their head. I study their character lines.” One photograph selected by Hall of Fame officials becomes the final model, although they occasionally direct Ellis to mix and match uniforms or other attributes from additional photos to best represent the overall career of the player. Glancing frequently at the photos, Ellis shapes the clay using sculpting tools that range from sewing utensils and dental instruments to the edge of a credit card. Her canvas is an oilbased clay that she shapes and refines over months, if necessary. “The clay is a lot more forgiving than wood, but if you bump it, you can lose a nostril,” she says. Ellis has been to Cooperstown only once, in 1998, when she and her family were invited to watch the induction of five members into the Hall of Fame. “It was unbelievable to see them unveil the plaques and show them on a huge JumboTron,” Ellis recalls. “I felt grateful and humbled to be a small part of it.” ★

WALMART’S ADVERTISED MERCHANDISE POLICY – We intend to have every advertised item in stock. However, we may not offer some items in all locations, and quantity or availability may vary due to unexpected demand or other circumstances beyond our control. Prices offered on Walmart.com may vary from prices offered in our stores. If an advertised item is out-of-stock at your Walmart store, upon your request, we will issue you a Rain Check so that you can purchase the item at the advertised price when it becomes available. In addition, we may offer to sell you a similar item at the advertised price or a comparable price reduction. “One-Time Offer” items, “Bonus” items, items identified as being available in limited quantities, and items that are not carried at your Walmart do not qualify for Rain Checks or offers of substitute items. “ONE-TIME OFFER” items are items that we carry at a special price for a limited time only. “BONUS” items are items that include a bonus amount of the same item or an additional bonus item at no extra cost. “ROLLBACK” means that the advertised price is even lower than the previously offered Every Day Low Price. In all cases, we reserve the right to limit quantities to normal retail purchases or one-per-customer or household, and to exclude dealers. Our advertising circular may vary by geographic region, and any particular regional circular will apply only to stores in that region. Offers and limitations void where prohibited by law. We apologize for, but will not be bound by, any errors in our advertisements.
