Engineer credits ’40s-style dike with protecting backwater area By Danny Barrett Jr.

By Holbrook Mohr The Associated Press JACKSON — A Catholic priest whom police believe was killed with his own pistol traveled with the gun for protection and kept it in the bedroom of the Mississippi beach house where he was shot, a colleague said Wednesday. A fellow cleric said the Rev. Edward E. Everitt, 70, usually went alone on weekend getaways to Waveland, the quiet town on the Mississippi Gulf Coast where his body was found Monday. A convicted felon who worked on the house is suspected of killing the Louisiana priest, then taking his car to Florida for Jeremy Wayne a Disney Manieri vacation. “He carried a gun for his own safety because he would be over there by himself,” the Rev. Cayet Mangiaracina said of Everitt’s .380 caliber pistol. “He kept it in his car, and then over there he kept it by his bed.” It’s not clear how much Everitt knew about the past of the man who did odd jobs for him. Jeremy Wayne Manieri, 31, has a long criminal record, but served short sentences for crimes that include a conviction for molesting a child, authorities said Wednesday. Manieri had a court appearance Wednesday in Florida and waived extradition to Mississippi, meaning he agreed to return to face charges. Polk County, Fla., Sheriff Grady Judd told The Associated Press that Manieri gave a detailed confession. But Judd declined to elaborate because “it’s a Mississippi case.” Authorities say Manieri robbed Everitt then used his stolen car and money to take his ex-wife, his 10-year-old stepson and his 5-year-old daughter to Florida with the intention of going to Disney World.

High court stops asbestos proceedings JACKSON, Miss. — The Mississippi Supreme Court has halted an asbestos case until it determines whether the trial judge should have stepped down. The case resulted in a $322 million verdict. In an order signed Tuesday, Chief Justice Bill Waller Jr. said a petition filed by Union Carbide for a review of whether Circuit Judge Eddie H. Bowen of Smith County should have presided over the case was granted. Waller set a briefs deadline of Aug. 11. On May 18, attorneys for Union Carbide said Bowen neglected to notify defense lawyers that his parents had been involved in similar asbestos litigation and had settled a case against Union Carbide. When Bowen didn’t respond to the petition, Union Carbide went to the Supreme Court.

Livingston deputies mull murder-suicide HOLDEN, La. — Livingston Parish sheriff’s detectives are investigating an apparent murder-suicide near Holden. It appears the husband shot his wife, then turned the gun on himself, said Jason Ard, chief criminal deputy. The names of the couple were not released because deputies were contacting relatives. Ard said the man and wife were in their mid-60s. He said there was no history of domestic violence complaints at the couple’s address.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — One day after the FBI served a search warrant on the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, no one is talking. The Choctaws are as tightlipped as the FBI about what occurred Tuesday at the Golden Moon and Silver Star casinos in Neshoba County. The casinos did not close, Paul Harvey, the chief executive officer of the resort, said in a statement released Tuesday by the tribe. “The resort is monitoring the situation closely and will con-

Stretch of I-55, I-220 eyed for medical research corridor JACKSON (AP) — Jackson city and business leaders are spearheading an effort to transform a five-mile stretch of road from Interstate 55 to Interstate 220 into a medical research corridor. The Mississippi Healthcare Corridor would include a previously announced research park the University of Mississippi Medical Center plans to build at the old Farmers’ Market and redevelopment of Hawkins Field for medical helicopter traffic and training. A steering committee of medical and business leaders hopes to have a master plan for developing the corridor finished in six months. The corridor would stretch along Woodrow Wilson Avenue in north Jackson. “This medical corridor will transform the city of Jackson,” said Mayor Harvey Johnson Jr.

After the spill

Shrimpers: Fishermen falsely blamed for turtle deaths BILOXI (AP) — A hostile crowd of about 150 shrimpers said Wednesday that they’re doing all that is reasonable to save sea turtles, accusing the national fisheries service of faking data and falsely blaming the fishermen of drowning the marine reptiles. Four environmental groups have threatened to sue the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and state agencies unless they act quickly to stop surges in turtle deaths along the Gulf Coast since last year’s oil spill. NOAA is getting public comment on what, if anything, needs to be done. “Who’s going to be on our

tinue to cooperate fully with law enforcement authorities in their investigation. There will be no interruption in the operation of business at the resort,” Harvey said. The action came a week after the election for chief. The results of the election were tossed out by the Tribal Council. A new election date is pending. Several news organizations were reporting that the FBI was searching the financial records of the casinos. FBI spokesman Ty Breed-

Most were young Kemp’s ridley sea turtles, which frequent shallow Gulf Coast waters. The turtles had been making a steady comeback, he said. They are being helped by laws to protect their nesting beaches and eliminate light

that can confuse just-hatched turtles into heading away from the ocean, and require escape hatches called turtle excluder devices in shrimp and some fishing nets. But NOAA figures show that the number of sea turtle strandings along the Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama coasts from fewer than 100 a year since 2002 to nearly 600 last year — most after the BP well blew wild in April — and more than 400 so far this year. Changes could include closing some waters to trawling when numbers of young turtles are present and requiring the excluder devices in kinds of nets that now are exempt.

Details, including the projected cost, economic impact and the number of new jobs the corridor would create, haven’t been determined, and no timetable for the project was given. Primus Wheeler, executive director of the Jackson Medical Mall Foundation, said a report on how to do that should be finished in six months. Duane O’Neill, executive director of the Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership, said there are no plans to ask for any public money for the effort, but local governments would need to rezone land and upgrade infrastructure as needed. Wheeler added there are a number of vacant buildings along the proposed corridor that could be revamped for use.

Anderson, who had defeated Chief Beasley Denson in a runoff that has since been nullified, told The Associated Press that she would not comment on the FBI search. Pearl River Tribal Council member Cyrus Ben has told the Neshoba Democrat that tribal members “are in the dark as much as you are.” Tribal Council Vice Chief Kevin Edwards said he had no comment.

Entergy announces plan to buy Hinds plant JACKSON (AP) — Entergy Mississippi Inc. said it plans to buy the Hinds Energy Facility, a 450-megawatt natural gas turbine on Beasley Road in Jackson. Entergy said Wednesday that the purchase is meant to increase capacity. The utility said it has entered into a purchase agreement to buy the plant for $206 million from KGen Power Corp. Entergy said buying the plant was more cost-effective than building a new one. The plant uses technology known as combined cycle gas turbine, which uses natural gas and its steam by-product to produce electricity. Entergy Mississippi is a division of New Orleansbased Entergy Corp.

House reflects U.S. unease with Libya It’s becoming more obvious by the day that Americans don’t like the war President Barack Obama started against Libya and want our participation to end. The House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly against supporting the war. But the House also voted against cutting off funds for the war. So there was a contradiction. As we have pointed out, the Libya war violates both the Constitution, which mandates a declaration of war by the full U.S. Congress for hostilities to even begin, and the War Powers Resolution of 1973, which requires that Congress must approve a war within 60 days of its initiation. Yet the votes on Libya do have some significance. “It’s quite clear that the House has no stomach for this,” said Doug Bandow, a senior fellow at the libertarian Cato Institute. “But they hate cutting off money while we’re in there.” He added that the House doesn’t have anybody who really likes the war. Which is unlike the Senate, where Rep. John

McCain, R-Ariz., and Rep. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., are major war hawks. Bandow said that the House is a more telling echo of the sentiments of the American people. “These are the most electionminded people because they’re all up for election next year,” whereas only one-third of the Senate is up for election. Sen. McCain won re-election last year; Sen. Graham doesn’t face an election until 2014. Bandow also pointed out that, although Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi is “a garden-variety strongman,” early propaganda against him by Libyan insurgents has not been borne out, in particular allegations of mass rapes. The Independent, a British newspaper, reported June 24: “An investigation by Amnesty International has failed to find evidence for these human-rights violations and in many cases has discredited or cast doubt on them. It also found indications that on several occasions the rebels in Benghazi appeared

to have knowingly made false claims or manufactured evidence.” Another aspect is that the International Criminal Court just issued an arrest warrant for Gadhafi for such alleged crimes. Bandow said that this misguided action “works at cross purposes” with attempts to end the war by getting the dictator to go into exile. The indictment means he would immediately be arrested once he left Libya, and so, instead, will fight on to the bitter end instead of negotiating peace. And as far as toppling tyranny goes, the United States has done nothing about the dictatorship in Bahrain, where the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet is harbored. The regime has arrested and sentenced pro-democracy protesters to life in prison. The Libya war never has made sense. Obama should end it immediately. Even though Congress won’t cut off funds, American voters will include the war in their calculations of whether to re-elect the president next year.

Will Thompson’s endorsement guarantee DuPree’s nomination? STARKVILLE — In the 2011 Democratic gubernatorial primary, the other shoe finally dropped as Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree and Clarksdale attorney Bill Luckett fight it out for their party’s nomination. U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Bolton, the senior Democratic official in the state’s congressional delegation — and in this session, the only one — on Tuesday made public his endorsement of DuPree in their party’s primary. While not totally unexpected, the endorsement is a plum for DuPree and a blow to Luckett’s chances at winning the nomination. In making the endorsement, Thompson said in part: “I have traveled throughout Mississippi and have encountered Mississippians of all walks of life. I have met citizens who are struggling to find work, are dissatisfied with the state of our failing educational system, and are concerned about the future of health care and Medicaid. Mississippians are in need of



The question for Luckett is just how much Bennie Thompson’s endorsement matters — and the answer is that it matters a great deal in a Democratic primary.

a capable leader to move Mississippi into a posture for progressive change. Mayor Johnny DuPree is the competent candidate able to bring about this change.” Thompson’s endorsement joins those of Starkville Mayor Parker Wiseman, Philadelphia Mayor James Young and other municipal and county government officials white and black along with highly respected House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Percy Watson, also of Hattiesburg. The question for Luckett is just how much Bennie Thompson’s endorsement matters — and the

answer is that it matters a great deal in a Democratic primary. Not only is Thompson the state’s only Democratic congressman, he’s a congressman with the ear of the White House. The current path to federal patronage jobs in Mississippi leads through Thompson’s office as the ranking Democrat and former chairman of the Homeland Security Committee. What was Thompson’s endorsement of a fellow African-American candidate worth in 2008? Thompson’s support at the grassroots level was critical in helping President Barack Obama attain a Mis-

sissippi Democratic primary win over his chief rival, Hillary Clinton. A record 434,152 voters cast ballots in Mississippi’s 2008 Democratic primary. Election returns from the 2008 Democratic primary shows that Obama won 20 delegates from the state while Clinton won 13. Obama won the primary with 265,502 votes, or 61.2 percent. Clinton placed second with 159,221 votes, or 36.7 percent. Democratic contenders who had already suspended their campaigns prior to the primary split the remaining 2.1 percent. Thompson’s longevity, his growing seniority in Congress and his mastery of the local politics in the Second District — the state’s most vote rich congressional district for Democrats — catapults him to the kind of political kingmaking status that white politicians like Big Jim Eastland once enjoyed. No one bats an eye as Republican politicians scramble to invoke Haley Barbour’s name as often as possible, so should there be any real

surprise that Democrats seeking statewide office court and need Thompson’s support as well? Thompson is a shrewd and canny politician. He is also not afraid to play hardball with white Democrats who court the state’s African-American vote but then fail to reciprocate that support when African-American candidates are standing for election. Conservatives make Thompson their whipping boy in Mississippi politics and Thompson is an unabashed liberal. But in terms of partisan politics, Thompson plays the game exactly as white politicians have played it for decades in both the Democrat and Republican parties ­— he helps those who help him and he plays to win. Luckett has superior resources in his race against DuPree. But in a Democratic primary in Mississippi, the follow-the-money rule doesn’t always apply. • Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist.

Stocks climb on jobs, JPMorgan earnings NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks jumped for a second day today after the government reported a decline in the number of people seeking unemployment benefits and JPMorgan Chase & Co. announced strong earnings. JPMorgan Chase & Co. rose 3 percent after the bank

reported that higher investment banking fees raised its net income above analysts’ expectations. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 8 points, or 0.6 percent, to 1,326 in morning trading. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 77, or 0.6 percent, to 12,568. The Nasdaq compos-

ite rose 18, or 0.6 percent, to 2,814. Applications for unemployment benefits fell to a threemonth low last week, a sign that companies are laying off fewer workers. At 405,000, the figure is still above the 375,000 that signals healthy job growth.

Food firms vow to alter kid-friendly ads Some brands might have to change recipes

WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation’s largest food companies say they will cut back on marketing unhealthier foods to children, proposing their own set of advertising standards after rejecting similar guidelines proposed by the federal government. A coalition of food companies — including General Mills, ConAgra and Kellogg — planned to announce the guidelines today. The companies said the effort will change what is advertised, forcing them to curb ads on one out of three products currently marketed to children. The proposed guidelines follow an announcement Wednesday by 19 restaurant chains that they would include healthier options in their menus. The new advertising standards, which will allow companies to market food and beverage products to children if they meet certain nutritional criteria, could force some brands

The associated press

A box of Honey Nut Cheerios to change recipes to include less sodium, fat, sugars and calories. While many companies have trumpeted their own efforts to market healthier foods to kids, the agreement would apply the same standards to all of the participating companies. “Now foods from different companies, such as cereals or canned pastas, will meet the same nutrition criteria, rather than similar but slightly different company-specific criteria,” said Elaine Kolish of the Children’s Food and Beverage Advertising Initiative, a

group formed by the industry to address marketing issues. The industry guidelines for children’s cereals, for example, would allow them to be advertised if they have around 10 grams of sugar a serving, while the formula used by the government would discourage advertising for cereals that have 8 grams of sugars in an equivalent serving. That would mean General Mills would still be able to advertise Honey Nut Cheerios under the industry guidelines but would be discouraged under the voluntary government guidelines.

NEW YORK (AP) — ConocoPhillips, the nation’s thirdlargest oil company, said today that it will split itself into two separate publicly traded companies and its CEO and Chairman Jim Mulva plans to retire once the transaction is complete. The breakup would create the largest independent refiner in the world, a prominent analyst said. “We have concluded that two independent companies focused on their respective industries will be better positioned to pursue their individually focused business strategies,” Mulva said. Conoco said its board has approved separating its refining and marketing and exploration and production businesses by spinning off the refining and marketing segment to shareholders in a taxfree transaction. Conoco’s refineries produced 2.3 million barrels per day of gasoline, diesel and other petroleum products in the first three months of the year. As a stand-alone business, it will be the largest independent refiner in the world, Oppenheimer & Co. analyst Fadel Gheit said. “This is so positive for them,” Gheit said. Instead of selling the refining assets, a spin-off creates a new business that will attract a different class of investors that will be better suited for the ups and downs that come with refining crude, Gheit said. Refineries, which must buy oil to make gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, routinely struggle to pass on high crude costs to consumers.

smart money Q: We have a 5/1 ARM loan at 5.75 percent for 30 years on our rental home, which will be up for an interest change in May 2012. Today the house value is $225,000 and the loan is for $270,000. The mortgage is about $2,025 and the renter pays $1,800 a month. We a r e comfortable paying the difference of $225 to cover the mortgage. BRUCE With the inevitable interest raise, we will not be able to make up the difference. We don’t want to go for a short sale/foreclose if possible, as it will affect our credit score, which is 820. For rental properties the bank needs the house to have at least 25 percent equity in the house. We don’t have any cash. — M.S. via e-mail A: You are currently paying 5.75 percent, which is going



to come up for an interest change. You might discuss that with your lender. Explain that you are subsidizing and you would like to continue to do so, but if the interest rate is increased, it will be impossible for you to cover. With real estate situations as they are and the 5.75 percent interest you are paying, that lender very likely will not want to lose you as a customer. The chance of them getting as much interest from someone else is remote. Beware that oftentimes you will have to fight your way through an army of people that say, this is our policy and that’s the way it is. They ordinarily will pay a lot more attention to an attorney’s letterhead than they will to your own. For pity sake, don’t tell them you are concerned about your credit score. That will only be used as a weapon against you.

GOP won’t be ‘tax collectors’ for Dems, McConnell says WASHINGTON (AP) — Testy lawmakers pointed fingers at one another and President Barack Obama today as negotiations over raising the national debt limited entered a perilous endgame. Wall Street eyed the standoff with growing anxiety. Obama’s blunt declaration that “enough is enough” as Wednesday’s talks ended did nothing to quell the rancor as a new day of positioning and posturing began. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took to the Senate floor early in the day to snipe that House Republican Leader Eric Cantor shouldn’t even be part of the talks anymore, calling him “childish.” And not long after, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell stood to serve notice that the debt

Dick Durbin, D-Ill., meet Wednesday. problem belonged squarely in Obama’s lap. “Republicans will not be reduced to being the tax collectors for the Obama economy,” McConnell said. “Don’t expect any more cover from Republicans on it than you got on health care. None.” None of it was a promising prelude to negotiations scheduled to resume at the White House this afternoon, less than three weeks before an

Aug. 2 deadline for increasing the government’s borrowing authority. Obama is demanding that budget negotiators find common ground by week’s end, as the financial world watches with increasing anxiety. “No one can tell me with certainty that a U.S. default wouldn’t cause catastrophe and wouldn’t severely damage the U.S. or global economy,” Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMor-

gan Chase & Co., told reporters today. “And it would be irresponsible to take that chance.” Moody’s Investors Service said Wednesday it will review the government’s credit rating, noting there is a small but rising risk that the government will default on its debt. If Moody’s were to lower the ratings, the consequences would ripple through the economy, pushing up rates for mortgages, car loans and other debts.

Astronauts getting time off in space after hectic week CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — After a hectic week in orbit, the astronauts on NASA’s last space shuttle flight got some time off today to savor their historic experience. “This is one of the first days we’ve been able to take a deep breath and appreciate

what we’re doing up here,” said space shuttle Atlantis’ commander, Christopher Ferguson. Until today, the workload in orbit was so intense that the four astronauts had only fleeting moments of realizing “wow, this is really it,” astronaut Rex Walheim said in a

series of TV interviews. The 10 astronauts aboard the linked Atlantis and International Space Station got time to linger over the “all-American meal” of grilled chicken and barbecued beef brisket that NASA packed for them, complete with baked beans and Hostess apple pie.

NASA urged the public to share in the virtual dinner, publishing the recipes online in advance. Before kicking back and relaxing, Ferguson said the space station delivery mission was going well and that the back-and-forth cargo hauling was three-quarters

mainly from tolls on rail traffic, totaled $5,008,965.97 through Wednesday, Smith said. Citing the bank work and pier repairs from four barge strikes this year, VBC chairman Bob Moss termed the budget “evolving” when asked about its constraints by District 3 member Dorwin Shields, appointed in January. “It’s just a budget,” Moss said. “You can amend it. You can operate within it or against it.” Also on Wednesday, commissioners billed $52,932.15 to barge companies for damages during four barge strikes this year. A $51,028.71 chunk of the total was billed to Bluegrass Marine, operator of a southbound tow of bean barges that broke apart

March 23 during the river’s first springtime crest, and Marquette Transportation, which owned the towboat. Both are based in Paducah, Ky. One barge struck pier 2, sank and was stranded against the pier for 22 days. An additional $1,903.44 was billed to Nashville, Tenn.-based Ingram Barge Company, operator of a northbound tow that hit pier 5 on May 25. Last Thursday, a northbound, 15-barge tow pushed by the Golden Eagle, also owned by Marquette, scraped piers 5 and 6 on the Louisiana side. Estimates for overtime costs and engineering costs should total $1,500 to $1,700, Smith said.

shore up the intersection of levees cost about $2.5 million to put into place, according to the Corps. Still, stages on the river side of Steele Bayou measured by the district’s hydraulics unit read a foot lower than levels for which they’d prepared — for a reason, Raimondo said. Many of the nearly 4,100 square miles of land in the backwater area are used for farming. Filling low spots on the 28-mile earthen barrier so it’s 107 feet above sea level from end to end is one of three improvements planned by the District. Construction of a 1,700-foot berm and 30 relief wells on the main-

line levee at Buck Chute is funded and scheduled to begin in the fall. A section of levee at Lake Albermarle is slated to be raised and reinforced where about 300 feet slid away during the flood, though a time schedule for the work is undetermined. For fiscal 2012, the Corps expects about $100 million less than this year systemwide. For the Vicksburg District, which covers half of Mississippi, northern Louisiana and southern Arkansas, total funds will equal $122.4 million, nearly $15 million less than this year. Funds for the Mississippi River and Tributar-

ies Project, begun after the 1927 flood to reinforce river banks and raise levees, total $82.5 million for the coming year, about $10 million less than 2011, according to figures compiled by the Mississippi Valley Division and part of Raimondo’s presentation. “We haven’t seen a supplemental (allocation),” Raimondo said. “We’re going to have to do the fixing in the Mississippi Valley Division with the funding we already have.” Cost to fully rebuild and repair the system overseen by the MR&T have been pegged at between $1 billion and $2 billion.

in an e-mail. In August 2009, Manieri was indicted for failing to register as a sex offender. He faced a five-year sentence on that charge. He pleaded guilty in February of this year. Circuit Judge John C. Gargiulo gave him a five-year suspended sentence after he had served about 16 months before his conviction, according to court records. He was given three years of probation. Everitt was a pastor at Holy Ghost Church in Hammond, La., and Our Lady of Pompeii Church in nearby Tickfaw. The church is a member of the Dominican Order and also operates a school in the community about 50 miles northwest of New Orleans. The house where Everitt died was used as a weekend retreat. Hancock County officials said it was registered to Holy Ghost Dominican Fathers Inc., a nonprofit corporation registered in Louisiana. Police say Manieri did odd jobs around the house.

Mangiaracina and Everitt are both listed as registered agents for the corporation, along with the Rev. Henry “Hank” Groover. Mangiaracina said he went to the house only once and did not know Manieri, though he had heard Everitt and Groover talk about his doing work there. He said Groover and Everitt used the house more often than he did, though usually not at the same time because they had different days off. “I think they were trying to help him out and he did some work there,” Mangiaracina said. “As far as his past, I don’t know how much they knew about that.” Groover could not be reached for comment. He had also been a priest in Louisiana until March when news reports revealed he had been charged with sexual battery in Savannah, Ga., in 2003, according to the Rev. Christopher Eggleton. Eggleton would not provide contact information for Groover.

Groover took a “no plea” to the reduced charge of disorderly conduct in Georgia, which means he didn’t plead innocent or guilty and paid a $250 fine, said Donna Boles, customer service representative for the Chatham County, Ga., Recorders Court. Groover is the brother-inlaw of celebrity chef Paula Deen and did not respond to questions sent to one of Deen’s representatives. Authorities say Manieri took the priest’s silver Chevrolet HHR, picked up his exwife and kids and headed for a motel in Mobile, Ala. Judd said they drove to a Days Inn in Polk County Monday evening and bought Disney passes with the priest’s cash. Manieri was arrested by a swat team when he stepped outside the hotel room for a smoke. Varnell, the Waveland police chief, said it’s early in the investigation and it’s not clear if the woman with Manieri when he was arrested would face charges.

Varnell said Manieri has a long criminal record, but somehow ended up serving short sentences for serious crimes. Varnell said he was “very much” disappointed in 2006 when Manieri pleaded guilty to molesting a girl, and received what Varnell considered a light sentence. Former Circuit Court Judge Stephen Simpson suspended a year of the two-year sentence and also gave Manieri credit for time served, according to court records in the case. He was required to register as a sex offender. Simpson said prosecutors reached a plea agreement in the case, so he didn’t have access to the evidence and based the sentence on the prosecuting attorney’s recommendation. “I was given no reason by the prosecution to believe that the sentence requested by the prosecuting attorney was not just,” Simpson said



Priest A swat team arrested Manieri early Tuesday at a Days Inn in Polk County after police tracked him down using the anti-theft device on the priest’s car. Manieri was being held on an auto theft warrant from Escambia County, Fla. Peter Mills, assistant public defender in Florida’s 10th Judicial Circuit, said attorney-client privilege prohibits him from commenting on discussions he had with Manieri. When asked if Manieri was guilty of the crime he’s accused of, Mills said, “He’s not guilty now.” “I believe that he hasn’t even been charged,” Mills said. “It was just an arrest warrant.” Waveland Police Chief James Varnell said Wednesday that he’s in contact with Florida officials about bringing Manieri back to face a murder charge.

Missing N.Y. boy, 8, found dismembered in freezer NEW YORK (AP) — Walking home alone from day camp for the first time, 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky disappeared. A day-and-a-half search led police to the Brooklyn home of a man seen on a surveillance video with the young Orthodox Jewish child. They asked: Where is the boy? The man nodded toward the kitchen, authorities said, where blood stained the freezer door. Inside was the stuff of horror films — severed feet, wrapped in plastic. In the refrigerator, a cutting board and three bloody carving knives. A plastic garbage bag with bloody towels was nearby.

Murder suspect Levi Aron, right, is escorted by police early today in Brooklyn. “It is every parent’s worst nightmare,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Wednesday, following the arrest of 35-year-old Levi Aron

17 killed in Mumbai; no suspects MUMBAI, India (AP) — No terror group has claimed responsibility for the triple bombings that killed 17 people in India’s financial capital Wednesday, and investigators had no immediate suspects in the attacks that came without warning, the country’s top security official said today. Angry residents of Mumbai blamed the government for an apparent intelligence breakdown that left the city vulnerable, but Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram said the latest attack did not represent a failure of the country’s anti-terror network. “Whoever has perpetrated this attack has worked in a very, very clandestine

manner,” Chidambaram said at a news conference after an emergency security meeting. Th e b o m b i n g s s h o o k three separate neighborhoods within minutes during Wednesday’s busy evening rush and were the country’s worst terror strike since the 2008 siege of Mumbai that killed 166 people. After that, India enacted sweeping security reforms and has avoided another major attack in the nearly three years since. That did little to reassure residents who questioned how the attack could happen despite massive security measures taken in recent years. “After the 2008 blast and all the media hype (about safety),

‘Whitey’ Bulger

Girlfriend’s ‘only crime is a crime of passion’ BOSTON (AP) — He clapped his hands and she jumped. He was harsh and controlling; she was kind and gentle. He kept 30 guns in holes he had carved into the walls; she didn’t know about the arsenal. During a bail hearing Wednesday for Catherine Greig — the longtime girlfriend of former Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger — her attorney por“Whitey” trayed her as Bulger a woman who was subservient to Bulger and knew little about the extent of his crimes. The details that emerged during the hearing could provide a glimpse into what Greig’s defense will be to a charge of harboring a fugitive. “This woman is not a violent person. ... Her only crime is a crime of passion — falling in love with this gentleman,” attorney Kevin Reddington said during the hearing. Bulger, the former leader of the notorious Winter Hill Gang, became one of the nation’s most wanted fugitives after he fled Boston in late 1994, just before he was indicted on racketeering charges. Authorities said he was warned about the coming indictment by former Boston FBI Agent John Connolly Jr., who was later convicted of racketeering and obstruction of justice for protecting Bulger, who was also a topechelon criminal informant

for the FBI. Greig is accused of helping Bulger elude authorities during their 16 years on the run together. The couple was arrested last month in a modest apartment in Santa Monica, Calif., where authorities say they found more than $800,000 in cash and dozens of guns hidden in the walls. Reddington painted a picture of a frightened or Catherine meek woman Greig who knew little about Bulger’s crimes. Reddington questioned an FBI agent about statements made to authorities by people who met Greig and Bulger in Grand Isle, La., during their first two years as fugitives. At the time, Bulger was using the name Tom while Greig was going by Helen, FBI agent Michael Carazza said. Carazza acknowledged that members of a family who befriended the couple said Bulger was harsh and controlling. “Tom would clap his hands as a signal to Helen that he needed her to get him something, and Helen would always respond quickly,” Reddington said, reading from an FBI report describing an interview with the family. Prosecutors, however, portrayed Greig as an eager partner to Bulger who willingly went on the run with him and actively helped him elude authorities.

Libya isolates Italy from oil partnership TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — Libya today barred Italy from future participation in its oil sector because of Rome’s role in the NATO airstrikes on the country, a move that raised serious questions about investments by Italian oil giant ENI SpA in the OPEC member state. But the North African nation’s prime minister left the door open for other alliance nations to re-evaluate their roles in the strikes or

risk facing the same fate. “The Italian government needs to totally forget about Libyan oil and every agreement we signed in the past,” Al-Baghdadi Al-Mahmoudi told reporters in the Libyan capital. “ENI will have to look elsewhere for business.” NATO has been striking forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and regime-linked military sites under a U.N. resolution aimed at protecting civilians.

we thought we were safe,” said Anita Ramaswami, a 33-yearold accountant. “But things still are the same and people in Mumbai continue to feel vulnerable.” Top Indian officials said the government may never be able to guarantee a terror-free nation in a region so plagued by extremist groups. “We live in the most troubled neighborhood in the world. Pakistan-Afghanistan is the epicenter of terror ... every part of India is vulnerable,” Chidambaram said. “It’s very difficult to stop every single terror attack,” agreed Rahul Gandhi, a senior leader of the ruling Congress Party.

corner seven blocks from his day camp, the first time the young Hasidic child was allowed to walk the route alone. Authorities said he

had evidently gotten lost after missing a turn, and had reached out to Aron, a stranger, for help. The gruesome killing shocked the tight-knit Hasidic community in Borough Park, in part because it is one of the safest sections of the city and because Aron is himself an Orthodox Jew, although not Hasidic. The Hasidim are ultra-Orthodox Jews. “This is a no-crime area,” said state Assemblyman Dov Hikind, whose district includes the area. “Everybody is absolutely horrified,” he said. “Everyone is in total shock, beyond belief, beyond comprehension ... to suddenly

disappear and then the details ... and the fact someone in the extended community ... it’s awful.” While the medical examiner’s office said it was still investigating how the boy was killed, the body was released so that the boy could be buried Wednesday evening according to Jewish custom. Police said there was no evidence the boy was sexually assaulted. Police said Aron, who is divorced, lives alone in an attic in a building shared with his father and uncle. Kelly said it was “totally random” that Aron grabbed the boy.

An NCAA official told Auburn coach Gene Chizik that its investigaton of the Tigers’ football program and the recruitment of Cam Newton is still ongoing, The New York Times reported Wednesday. Chizik asked NCAA vice president for enforcement Julie Roe Lach several questions, including why the NCAA had not announced that the Newton investigation was finished, during a presentation at the Southeastern Conference meetings in Destin, Fla., last month. “You’ll know when we’re finished,” Roe Lach told Chizik, according to several coaches who were at the meeting, the Times reported. “And we’re not finished.” Vanderbilt basketball coach Kevin Stallings, LSU basketball coach Trent Johnson, Ole Miss basketball coach Andy Kennedy and Arkansas basketball coach Mike Anderson all confirmed the exchange to the newspaper. Kennedy told the Times he believed Chizik “was trying to get some finality to when the process was over.”

against a great France team,” Wambach said. “However, our team has the ability to fight through adversity. Our team has the ability to stick together when the going gets rough, and I couldn’t be more excited and proud.” The Americans will face Japan on Sunday in Frankfurt.

SANDWICH, England — Enough about 2003. Thomas Bjorn is trying to create some new memories at Royal St. George’s. Bjorn opened with a 5-under 65 to claim the lead in the British Open, the major title he was denied the last time it came to this course on the English seaside. Not that he’s dwelling on what happened eight years ago. “I’m 40 years old,” the Dane said, “and there might just be a little bit more in me.” Bjorn ripped off three straight birdies coming down the stretch. Even with a stumble at the final hole, he was in the clubhouse with a onestroke lead over Miguel Angel Jimenez and six strokes ahead of U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy, who got off to a sluggish start. While McIlroy was the clear favorite, Bjorn didn’t even get into the tournament until Monday as an alternate, giving him a chance to make up for his collapse at the ’03 Open. That’s when he squandered a two-stroke lead over the final three holes, largely by needing three swings to escape a bunker on the par-3 16th. See Bjorn, Page B3.

Warren Central still searching for a new hoops coach Warren Central basketball fans are still waiting for the white smoke to billow from the Vicksburg Warren School District offices on Mission 66 to mark the hiring of a new hoops coach. Hopefully, they aren’t holding their breath. It might be a long wait to see the smoke that, at the Vatican, indicates the selection of a new top guy. The whole point of firing a coach is to secure an upgrade. After two nearmisses, the search has degenerated into desperation mode and is now at a crossroads. But how did we get to this point?

He took the blame for the Vikings’ struggles despite having a pool of talent shallower than the average Hollywood starlet before last season. John Wooden or Phil Jackson would’ve struggled with the lineups that Johnson had to field over the years.

• March 2 - WC coach Jesse Johnson fired as basketball coach • April 1 - Interviews wrap up in coaching search • May 17 - Thomas Billups removes his name from consideration • June 30 - Robert Byrd removes his name from consideration The search committee, headed by WC principal Rodney Smith, produced a fine list of candidates. They talked to a laundry list of coaches such as Petal’s Tory Harris, Port Gibson’s Kim Windom and Forest (La.) coach Jimmy Nail. After the interviews wrapped up, the group recommended a top-shelf coach, Lanier coach Thomas Billups, to fill the vacancy. Billups would have given instant credibility to the program with eight state title rings in his possession. The contract was completed, but Billups wouldn’t sign it. He was not happy with the coaching supple-

ment offered and didn’t want to return to a classroom to teach a computer class, so he bowed out. Strike one. The search shifted to New Hope coach Robert Byrd, who won a Class 5A title in 2008 and who was one of the two other finalists in the initial search process. The process dragged on and on and on. It was a near-repeat of the Billups situation. It dragged on longer than “The Simpsons” run on TV or the search for who shot J.R. Ewing on “Dallas.” But on June 30, it finally came to an end as Byrd pulled the plug and backed out in another contract

dispute. Whiff! Strike two. The clock is ticking. With no summer workouts or summer ball, this off-season has shaped up to be a lost one for the program. A new coach will have to come in, get acquainted with his charges and install his offensive sets and defense on the fly. On June 28, Johnson was approved by the Forrest County AHS school board as the school’s new basketball coach. What does it say about your coaching search when the coach you fired, Johnson, already has a new job before you’ve found his replacement? Not much. •

Football Texans, Saints call off joint practices HOUSTON — The Houston Texans and New Orleans Saints will not hold three joint practices leading up to their Aug. 20 preseason games, while they await the end of the lockout. The teams have practiced together in the previous three training camps, leading up to their preseason game. It’s become a popular event among fans in the cities, separated by only 350 miles. Last year, the teams practiced in New Orleans before playing at the Superdome. The lockout is into its fourth month. Negotiations between players and owners continued Wednesday in New York City.

Judge denies request by North Carolina’s McAdoo DURHAM, N.C. — A judge denied a request by former North Carolina football player Michael McAdoo to be reinstated to the team after being declared permanently ineligible for academic misconduct by the NCAA.

MLB Judge declares mistrial in Clemens’ perjury case WASHINGTON — The judge declared a mistrial in baseball star Roger Clemens’ perjury trial over inadmissible evidence shown to jurors. U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said Clemens could not be assured a fair trial after prosecutors showed jurors evidence against his orders in the second day of testimony. Walton scheduled a Sept. 2 hearing to determine whether to hold a new trial.

All-Star Game draws record-low rating PHOENIX — Baseball’s All-Star game drew a record-low rating for the second straight year. The National League’s 5-1 victory Tuesday night on Fox earned a 6.9 rating and 12 share. That’s down 8 percent from the 7.5/13 in 2010. Before last year, the previous low was an 8.1/14 in 2005. Ratings represent the percentage of all households with televisions tuned into a program, and shares represent the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time.

Marlins close upper deck for remaining home games MIAMI — The Florida Marlins are closing the upper deck at Sun Life Stadium. The Marlins rank last among the 30 major league clubs in home attendance, and the team no longer sees a need to sell seats in the second level of the football stadium they call home. Florida plans to move into a baseball-only ballpark in downtown Miami next year.


BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS July 14 1967 — Eddie Mathews of the Astros hits his 500th home run off San Francisco’s Juan Marichal at Candlestick Park. Houston beats the Giants 8-6. 1968 — Hank Aaron hits his 500th home run off Mike McCormick as the Atlanta Braves beat the San Francisco Giants 4-2. 1985 — The Baltimore Stars defeat the Oakland Invaders 28-24 to win the United States Football League championship. 2005 — In Oklahoma City, the United States is beaten in an international softball game for the first time since 2002, losing 2-1 to Canada in the inaugural World Cup of Softball. The U.S., which has won the gold medal in three straight Olympics, last lost an international game on July 4, 2002, 6-1 to Japan at the U.S. Cup.

Contenders fight injuries at halfway mark

Meija leads M-Braves to win over Smokies

By The Associated Press

From staff reports

From Derek Jeter to Albert Pujols and Joe Mauer, you could put together an AllStar team just from the guys who have been stuck on the disabled list this season. If 2010 was the Year of the Pitcher, 2011 might just be the Year of the Injury. David Wright, Buster Posey and Zack Greinke have missed big chunks of time as well, and the rash of injured stars may be one of the biggest reasons that all six division races are so close heading into the unofficial second half of the season. With so many teams playing short-handed, no one has been able to break away from the pack yet and take command of the pennant race, setting up a 21⁄2-month sprint to the finish. Jeter spent 21 days on the shelf with a calf injury that slowed his pursuit of 3,000 hits, Pujols stunned everyone by coming back from a broken forearm after just two weeks and Mauer’s seemingly unimpeachable image in his home state of Minnesota took a big hit when he spent most of the first two months of the season rehabbing a mysterious leg injury. The current disabled list is chock full of stars — Johan Santana, Jon Lester, Roy Oswalt, Carl Crawford, Josh Johnson, Justin Morneau. And many of the trips haven’t been quick ones. Wright has been on the list since May 16 with a stress fracture in his lower back, Morneau is not expected back until mid-August after having neck surgery and Johnson was placed on the 60-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation on May 17. Others won’t be back at all this year. Posey, San Francisco’s bright young star catcher, is out after breaking his left leg and straining some ligaments in his left

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Lance Berkman watches a home run against Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Zack Greinke this season. ankle on a home plate collision with Florida’s Scott Cousins on May 25. Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright, Yankees right-hander Joba Chamberlain and Boston’s Daisuke Matsuzaka have all had surgery on their pitching elbows and are rehabbing for 2012. It even sent the All-Star managers searching a little bit to fill a few holes created by injuries. “You are scrambling a bit when you have the number of injuries that we have to deal with before we chose the team,” NL manager Bruce Bochy said on Monday. The Red Sox, Cardinals and Giants have somehow been able to weather a series of significant injuries and sit atop their respective divisions as the second half of the season is about to commence.

With the air-tight nature of the playoff chase — all six division leaders have a cushion of 31⁄2 games or fewer — it is conceivable that the teams who are able to remain the healthiest and avoid any more key injuries will be the ones that advance to the postseason. Here’s a quick look at the stars and surprises of the first half of the season:

Stars • Jose Reyes, SS, New York Mets: Electrifying presence has made the Mets worth watching. Leading NL with .354 average and 15 triples, six more than next closest hitter. • Matt Kemp, CF, Los Angeles Dodgers: Allaround stud. Hitting .313 with 22 homers and 67 RBIs. Been intentionally walked 12 times and leads in many of

the stat geeks’ favorite categories, including wins over replacement. • Jair Jurrjens, RHP, Atlanta Braves: Leads NL in wins (12), ERA (1.87) to keep Braves within striking distance of the juggernaut in Philadelphia. • Jose Bautista, OF/3B, Toronto Blue Jays: His assault continues. Belted a league-high 31 homers in first half and also hitting .334, second in the league while playing two positions. • Adrian Gonzalez, 1B, Boston Red Sox: Worth everything that the Red Sox invested. Leading league with .354 average and 77 RBIs with 17 homers. • Justin Verlander, RHP, Detroit Tigers: With apologies to All-Star starter Jered Weaver, Verlander has been the AL’s best pitcher in the first half. Is 12-5 with a 2.15 ERA and league-leading 147 strikeouts. Also tossed a nohitter on May 7 at Toronto.

Surprises • Pittsburgh Pirates: The perennial losers are in the middle of a stunningly successful season, riding CF Andrew McCutchen and closer Joel Hanrahan to a 47-43 record, just one game behind the Cardinals and Brewers in the NL Central. • Lance Berkman, OF, St. Louis Cardinals: In the middle of a career resurgence, leading NL with 24 homers. • Curtis Granderson’s power: The New York Yankees’ center fielder struggled in his first year in pinstripes, but has rebounded in a big way this year. His 25 homers at the break are the secondhighest total in the majors, behind Bautista. • The top ace in Philly: When the Phillies unveiled their ‘Four Aces’ starting rotation, Cole Hamels was the last one mentioned. Not now.


Ernesto Mejia and the Mississippi Braves had a night to remember. Meija paced the M-Braves to a 10-2 victory over the Tennessee Smokies at Trustmark Park Wednesday. Mejia had three hits, including a double and a home run. He scored twice and had four RBIs. In his first game with the M-Braves (9-11, 34-56) in a rehab appearance, Atlanta Braves outfielder Martin Prado went 1-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored. Prado’s walk came in his first plate appearance. He flew out to left field, grounded out to second base, singled in the seventh and reached on a fielder’s choice in the eighth. Mejia launched his 15th home run of the season, a tworun shot, over the M-Braves’ bullpen in the bottom of the first to give the M-Braves a quick 2-0 lead. Dan Nelson walked and later scored on a Mycal Jones double to make it a 3-0 game. In the Smokies’ (9-11, 52-38) half of the second, Rebel

Minor League Baseball Ridling walked, Steve Clevenger singled, and Nelson Perez walked to load the bases. David Macias drove in Ridling with a sacrifice fly to left field, cutting the M-Braves’ lead to 3-1. Tennessee made it a onerun game in the fourth when Josh Vitters singled, moved to second on a groundout, and scored on a Macias single to center field. Prado got things started in the seventh with a single up the middle. Willie Cabrera followed with a single, moving Prado over to third while taking second on an overthrow. Mejia drove in both runners on a double to left field, extending the M-Braves’ lead to 5-2. The M-Braves added five more runs in the eighth on five hits and a couple errors to complete the scoring. Brett Oberholtzer (6-9) started and went six innings. He gave up just two earned runs on six hits, two walks and four strikeouts.

Waites Continued from Page B1. when I cleared it at South State. It was a half inch more than 11 feet at Tylertown, but it went down as 11 feet. So now, I’ve done it twice.” Leah Walker of New Iberia, La., won the ages 15-16 girls regional with a clearance of 12 feet. Waites said she has become quite familiar with Walker’s pole vaulting talent. “I’ve competed against her a number of times,” Waites said of Walker. “She was actually having an off day, and I thought I might could beat her. Still, I was glad to be in the top five.” Five qualified and Waites finished second. Back in May, and as an eighth-grader at St. Al, Waites successfully defended her Class 1A title in the pole vault by eclipsing a Missis-

sippi High School Activities Association overall girls record at 10-7. The mark came a week after she cleared 11 feet at the South State 1A meet in Tylertown. As a seventh-grader, Waites took home the gold at the Class 1A state meet. Early into her eighth grade season, she cleared 10-6 to become nationally ranked. When she topped 11 feet at South State, Waites became the top-ranked girl nationally in the eighth grade class. Three weeks after the state meet, Waites finished sixth, but still qualified for the AAU Nationals. She bounced back later in June by clearing 10-6 at an AAU event at LSU in Baton Rouge.

Soccer Continued from Page B1. which had made only other World Cup appearance, and Japan in the final four along with the Americans and Sweden. And the Japanese made surprisingly easy work of Sweden, the last unbeaten team in the tournament in the other semifinal Wednesday night. “Tonight, the Japanese were a bit more eager to win,” Sweden coach Thomas Dennerby said after Japan’s 3-1 victory. The Americans knew they had doubters when they arrived in Germany.

They’d lost three games since November, an alarming “bad” streak for a team that can goes years without a loss, and needed to win a playoff just to get to the World Cup. But the players were unshakable in their belief in themselves, and that will to win has won over the entire country. Even though the game started at 11 a.m., people from coast to coast skipped work or took frequent “breaks” to watch the game.

Flames shoot out of the exhaust of Andy Lally’s car during a pit stop during the Coke Zero 400 race on July 2.

Lally marches to his own beat in NASCAR SPARTA, Ky. (AP) — Andy Lally wants a hamburger. Badly. The bloodier the better. Yet the former sportscar champion turned NASCAR driver won’t have one. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not ever. He’ll deal with the craving, internalize it and put it aside just like he’s done every day for the last seven years, since he decided every living thing was entitled to the same rights he enjoys. Two years ago Lally took it a step further, moving from vegetarian to vegan, which means he’s cut out dairy products, too. Though the 36-year-old from New York’s Long Island considers it an ethical choice, he understands it’s not for everybody, particularly the largely meat-and-potatoes crowd that crams the grandstand every weekend at a Cup race.

That doesn’t mean he’s not open to educating whenever possible. “If (people) were able to see the mistreatment and Andy what goes on Lally and see what shows up to them in a nice shiny package,” Lally begins then cuts himself off, saying “I don’t want to go there.” Then Lally laughs. Sorry, he can’t help but go his own way. When you’re a newcomer driving for an underdog Cup team that’s had a revolving door in the driver’s seat for three years, you don’t really have a choice. Halfway through his first fulltime Cup season driving the No. 71 TRG Motorsports Ford, Lally is trying to find pleasure in the grind. He heads to this week’s race at New Hamp-

shire 33rd in points, but with something almost resembling momentum. Lally qualified seventh in Daytona two weeks ago only to fade to 27th after having trouble finding a running partner in the later portion of the race. He finished 32nd at Kentucky last Saturday, not bad considering he started as the 43rd — and last — car in the field. Could the three-time winner of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona still be winning GrandAm races somewhere? Sure. Yet he’d rather be sweating it out every weekend in Cup. Even if it means working from the back of the field. “Every aspect of the Cup series is humbling, man,” Lally said. “People will say, ‘He’s coming from something so different he’s going to get his butt kicked all year and if he makes any strides, great.’ But on my end, it’s not acceptable unless we’re going

forward.” And he’s encouraged by the progress his somewhat thrown together team has made over the last five months. Though the 71 car has been around for the last three years, stability has been hard to come by. Lally is one of nine drivers to hop behind the wheel for owner Kevin Buckler since he founded the team in 2009. The team switched from Chevrolet to Ford this spring and is already on its third crew chief of the year, with Doug Richert now calling the shots. That’s a lot of moving pieces to deal with, and Lally remains optimistic the program is heading in the right direction. Still, it can be a nerve-wracking experience. He calls failing to qualify at Darlington and Charlotte earlier this year “one of the toughest things I’ve ever gone through as a professional.”

Continued from Page B1. Ben Curtis went on to claim the claret jug in one of golf’s greatest shockers. “I probably didn’t dwell on it as much as some people thought,” Bjorn said. “I think the only really hard time I had with it was when I came back to Troon the year after. I felt that was difficult because it just became so fresh in the mind: the Open championship.” Bjorn got some good fortune at the 16th this time. He thought his 9-iron was headed for the bunker, but the ball took a fortunate bounce and rolled down next toward the cup. He made the

putt for his third birdie in a row. “We all know what it’s like,” Bjorn said. “A bounce here or there, and then it goes either wrong or right. ” At least, it appears, he won’t have to worry about Curtis. The American champion will have trouble just making the cut after shooting a 77. The clear favorite was McIlroy, coming off his dominating win at Congressional. But the 22-year-old from Northern Ireland put himself in an early hole by making bogeys on two of his first three holes.

Zoo uses fake eggs to fool flamingoes An Ohio zoo is using artificial eggs to fool its mother flamingoes, so they don’t wear themselves out. The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has found eggs laid by its female flamingoes are most likely to hatch if they’re put in an incubator. When eggs are taken away, the mothers might keep laying replacements. Zoo assistant curator Carrie Pratt said it can be taxing to continue to lay eggs. To get the females to stop producing, the zoo gives them fake eggs made of wood or plaster. The zoo just welcomed its latest incubated chicks — three that were hatched less than a week ago.


‘Mad Men,’ ‘Mildred Pierce’ get top nods LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Mad Men,” the sharply observed drama of a changing 1960s America, captured 19 Emmy nominations this morning to lead the series pack, with the melodramatic miniseries “Mildred Pierce” starring Kate Winslet grabbing a top 21 bids. “Mad Men” has a chance to repeat for a fourth consecutive year as best drama. “Modern Family,” last year’s top comedy series, was the most-nominated sitcom with 17 bids. Other leading nominees include the Prohibition-era drama “Boardwalk Empire” with 18 nominations, “Saturday Night Live” with 16 and 13 bids each for the sex-andswords fantasy “Game of Thrones” and the sitcom “30 Rock.” “OK, keep it together,” a surprised nominations coannouncer Melissa McCarthy said when she realized she was a nominee for her sitcom “Mike & Molly.” The controversial miniseries “The Kennedys,” which was dropped by the History channel and given a second chance by the lesser-known ReelzChannel, received 10 nominations, including best miniseries. Familiar faces have a chance to claim — or reclaim — Emmys, including last year’s lead comedy actress winner Edie Falco of “Nurse Jackie” and Jim Parsons, best actor for a comedy for “The Big Bang Theory.” Both were nominated this year. Jon Hamm received his fourth lead acting bid for

Actors Melissa McCarthy and Joshua Jackson announce this year’s Emmy nominees today in Los Angeles. “Mad Men,” and this time the competitor who denied him the award three times before isn’t in the category. Bryan Cranston and “Breaking Bad” weren’t eligible for this year’s awards because the series took a break between seasons. Steve Carell earned a best comedy actor for his final season of “The Office,” his last chance to win an Emmy statuette for his role as TV’s most clueless boss. Matt LeBlanc, best known for his role as Joey in “Friends,” received a lead comedy actor bid for playing a screen version of himself in the satiric show business series “Episodes.”

There were fresh faces as well, including best drama actress nominee Mireille Enos of “The Killing” and best drama actor Timothy Olyphant of “Justified.” Kyra Sedgwick of “The Closer,” last year’s best drama actress winner, found herself closed out of the category. Two Oscar winners, Winslet and Melissa Leo, have a chance to score an Emmy for “Mildred Pierce.” Leo, who also appears in the New Orleans drama “Treme,” received a supporting actress bid for the miniseries. Emmy voters have a chance to flaunt their risk-taking side with “Game of Thrones,”

given the usual resistance to rewarding genre shows like fantasy or science fiction. The series based on the George R.R. Martin novels scored a best drama nod but only a single acting bid, for Peter Dinklage in a supporting role. Other best drama contenders besides “Game” and “Mad Men” are “Boardwalk Empire,” “Dexter,” “Friday Night Lights” and “The Good Wife.” “Modern Family” is competing with “The Big Bang Theory,” “Glee,” “The Office,” “Parks and Recreation” and “30 Rock” for the best comedy crown.

‘Teen mom’

MTV stars juggle toddlers, tabloid scrutiny By Alicia Rancilio The Associated Press NEW YORK — People tend to stare at 19-year-old Maci Bookout. “If I go grocery shopping or something it’s not that bad but on the weekends that Bentley’s dad has him and me and my friends go out ... to a club or something I can tell that people are like watching to see how I’m going to act or what I’m going to do,” says Bookout, of Chattanooga, Tenn., mother of a 2-yearold named Bentley and one of the stars of MTV’s “Teen Mom,” a reality show about kids with kids. Bookout and her co-stars, Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood and Catelynn Lowell, first made their TV debut on another MTV reality show, “16 and Pregnant.” The series was so successful that the network tapped them to star in the “Teen Mom” spinoff. Nielsen reports some 3.65 million viewers tuned in to its third season premiere on July 5. Viewers watched Lowell and her boyfriend, Tyler, grieve over the daughter they gave up for adoption (they maintain they made the right decision), Abraham’s ups and downs with her mother (one altercation between the two led to her mom being charged with assault) and Bookout navigate co-parenting with her ex-fiance, Ryan. Motherhood has made the teens instant celebrities, with tabloids and bloggers hot on

On TV “Teen Mom” is on MTV Tuesdays at 9 p.m. their trail at every change or rumor in their lives. “Like moving or marriage or are we pregnant again,” says Abraham, 20, who has a 2-year-old daughter named Sophia. “You know those things, I guess, are attention-grabbers so it’s understandable why that would happen.” But Abraham doesn’t think that having a baby should make her a celebrity or a role model for other teens. “By no means do we think, ‘Oh, it’s cool to be a teen mom.’ I definitely don’t think that it’s cool,” she says. Lowell, 19, from Port Huron, Mich., has used her celebrity to help teens become more

knowledgeable about safe sex and the responsibilities of parenthood. She speaks to teens at high schools and churches about teen pregnancy and the various options available. “All of us kind of agree on one thing. As long as the show is doing its job as far

as preventing teen pregnancy and stays educational the show will continue,” says Bookout. But celebrity hasn’t been as easy for all the teens, particularly 21-year-old Portwood, of Anderson, Ind., who was given probation in June after pleading guilty to two domestic battery charges against Gary Shirley, the father of her child. The incidents aired on the reality show. The following week, Shirley called 911, fearing Portwood was about to hurt herself. The reality star was hospitalized and is now undergoing treatment at a rehab facility. Her child, Leah, is living with her father. “I love Amber. I mean I hope that she just keeps her head up and she knows what she needs to get done and stays strong,” says Lowell. “I think where she’s at is good for her right now and she just needs to focus on getting better.”

Widowed mother’s ugly behavior might be cry for help Dear Abby: I agree with your advice to “Driven Away in Georgia” (May 26), whose widowed mother has become so bitter, all eight of her children avoid her. As a clinical neuropsychologist who works with people with dementia and other aging-related problems, I’d like to share my thoughts. When a spouse dies, previously undetected early-stage dementia can become apparent to others. If the surviving spouse had pre-existing cognitive deficits, they might have been concealed by the competency of the other spouse. After the spouse dies, the structure and functional support once provided is suddenly removed. Symptoms then become apparent to family members. Another diagnostic option might be depression, which can often resemble dementia in elderly



people. There are medications that can help manage and even slow down the progression of dementia, and early intervention might partially stabilize her at a higher level of functioning. You were right to recommend that family members become more involved rather than back away since this woman clearly needs either psychiatric or neurological intervention, or both. Thank you for shedding light on a very common problem that can touch any family. — Richard Fulbright, Ph.D., Dallas


BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Although conditions could have a rather erratic influence over your commercial affairs, everything should turn out well. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Don’t hesitate to test out your ingenious ideas on those with whom you’re involved. Even if they don’t comprehend your schemes or understand what you’re doing, they’ll applaud the results. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Because you’ll handle a unique situation so quickly and intelligently, you could garner much more profit from it than was expected. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Talk to a valuable contact who is reluctant to agree with you on an issue that is of some significance. Once he or she hears it from your mouth, chances are this person will concur. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Go ahead and put into practice some of those ideas swirling around in your head on how to do something better.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m a 13-yearold girl and enjoy sleeping on my stomach. I’ve tried sleeping on my side and back, but I don’t find those positions comfortable. My aunt lives with my family and occasionally sleeps in my room. Last night, she slept in my room. This morning, she said that young girls should never sleep on their stomachs because it will cause them to become flat-chested. Is that true? I’m not interested in becoming a Playboy model, but I don’t want to be flat as a board, either. — Nameless, Pendleton, Ore. Nameless: Mother Nature determines your body shape, not your sleeping position. According to the Sleep Disorders Center at Johns Hopkins University, most people sleep on their sides, but some sleep on their backs and a few sleep on their stomachs. The Sleep Disorder Center reports that the correct sleeping position is whatever works best to promote comfortable and rejuvenating sleep. For you, it’s sleeping on your stomach.

Keep sleeping that way without fear! Dr. Wallace: I read that 60 percent of all teachers are female, but only 20 percent of all principals are female. This sounds like gender prejudice to me. Do you, a male and a former principal, agree? — Nameless, Vicksburg, Miss. Nameless: It looks that way, but sometimes looks are deceiving. Many females who are qualified to be a principal refuse the position because of family commitments. Female principals are equal to their male counterparts in skill and leadership qualities. In fact, they might be a bit better. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@ Copley News Service.

Dear Dr. Fulbright: Thank you for sharing your expertise and raising awareness for those with family members who are also struggling with similar issues. Read on: Dear Abby: In addition to concerns about dementia, the mother might be overwhelmed with living life as a widow. The eight surviving children should try to arrange for part-time hired help for her household chores that build up. If Mom is living on limited income, she might be crushed with financial stress. Perhaps it’s time for her to downsize to a more manageable home. Instead of avoiding her, these “kids” need to find out exactly what problems are overwhelming their mother and get her help. — Concerned Son in Laurel, Md. Dear Abby: “Driven” and her siblings could offer more

by getting together, taking potluck dishes and meeting at Mom’s house over a weekend to split up her chore list. My own mom would say, “Many hands make labor light” — and laughter makes the time pass quickly. If they can do this two or three times a year, Mom might feel more secure and relaxed. Her children also should take turns taking Mom out to dinner and a movie once a month. It will give her something to look forward to. When you lose someone who was involved in your daily life, it gets lonely. A tip to the kids: Imagine yourselves in your mom’s shoes instead of thinking about how much you have to do. Even a person with dementia, if this is the case, can be happy with the right help. — Nancy in Payson, Ariz.

Natural remedies can help relieve arthritic hands Dear Dr. Gott: My 67-year-old husband has recently become affected by arthritis pain in his hands. They swell and his knuckles seem to “stick.” What are some ways of dealing with this problem? He is currently taking aspirin for the pain, but we’d like to know if a supplement or anything else would be helpful. Dear Reader: There are more than 100 types of arthritis, the most common of which is osteoarthritis. This form typically occurs as we age and is the result of joint cartilage breakdown. While typically seen in seniors, anyone can develop osteoarthritis; it generally affects weight-bearing joints such as the hips, knees and spine, but might be present in just about any joint in the body. To determine if this is the cause of your husband’s hand pain, I suggest he make an appointment with his physician for an examination, blood work and X-rays. Other types of arthritis can cause similar symptoms but might require different treatment. I will answer your question as though he has osteoarthritis since it is the most likely cause. Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen, naproxen and aspirin can relieve pain and swelling, but do not use more than the recommended dose because they might upset the stomach. Glucosamine chondroitin might prevent further damage and rebuild lost cartilage. Topical castor oil, or castor oil-based lotions with capsaicin or menthol (such as Castiva), applied to the affected areas twice a day can reduce pain. A purple grape juice and liquid pectin combination has been found to reduce pain and swelling while increasing mobility. Simply mix 8 ounces of the juice with 1 to 2 tablespoons of the liquid pectin; drink up to three times a day. When pain levels have been lowered, reduce the pectin to 1 to 2 teaspoons and drink the mixture once or twice a day as a maintenance dose. Other

readers have had success using 4 ounces of grape juice and 8 ounces of apple juice, and a few brave souls have even taken the pectin without any juice at all. Apple pectin capsules have



also been found beneficial by some, but they might be difficult to find. Beyond that, prescription anti-inflammatory and pain medications might be recommended. Exercise and physical therapy will keep the joints moving.

• Write to Dr. Peter Gott in care of United Media, 200 Madison Ave., 4th fl., New York, NY 10016.

Dear Abby: Anytime our family got together, or my folks were having special guests over, my mom would ask me to clean her house. I resented it, figuring since I could clean my home, Mom could clean hers. Mom died more than a year ago, and I’d give ANYTHING to be able to clean house for her again. —

Bill in Traskwood, Ark.
