Nearly $168,000 owed to county for taxes on personal property By Danny Barrett Jr. firstname.lastname@example.org
M-Braves, Mobile take one each B1
More than two-thirds of delinquent personal property tax debt in Warren County has been paid in the past year, but the balance will remain a popular talking point among supervisors as they craft a budget for 2011. Figures from the Tax Collector’s Office show $168,744.78 is owed on per-
sonal property, which means all items within a structure not built onto land, most often inventories kept by a business. Physical structures such as houses and buildings are defined as real property. The total reflects debts and penalties of the 2006 through 2008 tax years and is 68 percent smaller than a year ago when supervisors began a push to collect in the face of shrinking revenue derived
from the state. That push has revealed disagreements between supervisors who approve budgeting based on multiple revenue sources and the sheriff’s department, still designated in state law as the enforcement entity for the “stuff tax” despite the decades that have elapsed since sheriffs in Mississippi collected all taxes. See County, Page A7.
Local casino revenues climb as most in state see decline By staff and AP reports Revenue-based tax payments paid to the city, county and schools here from Vicksburg’s five casinos were up 3.6 percent in June compared to the same month in 2009, indicating local casinos fared better than others along the Mississippi River and Gulf Coast. Proceeds from three different revenue taxes collected from local casinos were $880,380 in June, compared to $849,024 a year ago.

Two say Claiborne officials violated civil rights
WORKING THE MOUND
Vicksburg gets the lion’s share of all local gaming tax revenue, including a 65 percent cut of the main 3.2 percent tax, while Warren County gets 25 percent and the school district, 10 percent. A second revenue tax equaling an 0.8 percent share of the state’s 8.8 percent revenue tax is split between the city and county nearly evenly based on populations. Casinos also are required to pay the city a $150,000 fee

Oil cap stays on despite slow seepage By The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — Oil from BP’s blown out well is again seeping into the Gulf of Mexico, but this time, more slowly and scientists aren’t convinced the cap that stopped the flow last week is making things worse. The government said Monday that oil was seeping into the Gulf after days of
warning that the experimental cap on the oil well could cause more leaks. Despite what at Thad first seemed Allen a setback, though, the federal government declared the development insignificant and
On A3 Benefit concert planned in Vicksburg forged ahead with BP’s plan for finally sealing the hole in the ocean floor. Ever since the cap was used to bottle up the oil last week, engineers have been watching underwater cameras and monitoring pres-
sure and seismic readings to see whether the well would hold or spring a new leak, perhaps one that could rupture the sea floor and make the disaster even worse. Small amounts of oil and gas started coming from the cap late Sunday, but “we do not believe it is consequential at this time,” retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad See Oil, Page A8.
Two Vicksburg brothers are suing Claiborne County, its sheriff’s department and Sheriff Frank Davis for damages, alleging they were injured by “excessive force” and held in jail until their brother, who had felony charges against him there, turned himself in. A money amount is not mentioned. Joseph and Wesley Rader, 103 Cross Drive, claim “gross deprivation of their civil rights” resulting from being arrested without cause and subjected to unreasonable search and seizure by Claiborne County deputies in Warren County early on July 12, 2009. Their father, Fred Rader Sr., also is a plaintiff in the case. The four-count lawsuit, filed in Warren County Circuit Court by Vicksburg attorney James “Buck” Penley, charges excessive force under color of law, assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment. Reached Monday, Davis said he had no comment. The suit had only recently been served and was turned over See Claiborne, Page A8.
Wisconsin Avenue reopens to vehicular traffic Homeowner By Manivanh Chanprasith firstname.lastname@example.org Traffic was flowing along the length of Wisconsin Avenue this morning, marking the end of a detour that had rerouted motorists on Bazinsky and Porters Chapel since Feb. 1. The main reason for the detour was to allow a perpendicular cut in the road and construction of an underpass that will allow U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center personnel to reach all buildings on its campus without leaving the secured area. “The Corps of Engineers and ERDC appreciate the understanding of the City of Vicksburg and its residents and the inconvenience closing Wisconsin has had,” ERDC Commander Col. Gary Johnston said in a statement. “We are all glad that traffic is flowing normally again. The completed

A car travels over the newly opened bridge on Wisconsin Avenue Monday. project will improve traffic flow for both the City of Vicksburg and ERDC.” Vehicles were reportedly taking the restored route as early as last Thursday, although some work continued in the area. Vicksburg Public Works Director Bubba Rainer said the Corps’ portion of the work was completed by the
April 23 deadline. “Everything went like it was supposed to,” he said. “Paving was done on time.” However, the city paired the interruption with a federal stimulus-funded resurfacing project, one of two paid for from a $947,635 allocation from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
The other, milling and paving of Clay Street from Cherry Street to Mission 66, was completed April 7. Work continues on the actual internal road that will link the main portion of ERDC with its Information Technology Lab where the super computers are located. “Eventually, all traffic for ERDC will be internal to the research facility installation, eliminating ERDC traffic off Porters Chapel and Wisconsin Avenue,” ERDC spokesman Wayne Stroupe said in the statement. Construction on the internal road will continue through late August, when it is slated to be complete at a cost of approximately $2 million. ERDC dates to 1928 when it was founded to study rivers. Scientists and support personnel there now work in support of Army military and civilian projects worldwide.
jailed for arson By Steve Sanoski email@example.com Authorities have jailed a homeowner, accusing him of arson for moving all his personal belongings out of a home before it was set on fire. Johnny Ray Galey, 54, was being held in the Warren County Jail without bond and is expected to have an initial hearing today, Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said. Galey was reportedly in Florida when the blaze engulfed his home at 9960 U.S. 61 South around 6:30 a.m. Saturday, but Pace said the “suspicious origin” of the fire and the absence of personal belongings led to Galey’s arrest. “Apparently everything in the house had been removed and stored in an off-site See Arson, Page A7.

Neighbor shoots, kills family pet in front of children, ages 6 to 9 Two Vicksburg children, ages 6 to 9, watched their 4-year-old Shih Tzu die Monday after a neighbor shot her with a BB gun in the 800 block of Patton Street. At 3:22 p.m., the children told Vicksburg patrolmen they were walking the dog past the neighbor’s house when “he ran into the house, got a gun and shot Lady,” police Sgt. Sandra Williams said. “I think the poor puppy was shot in the hind quarter,” said Williams. “He fired one time.” She said the accused shooter told police the animal, valued at $550, routinely used his yard for a restroom. The neighbor was charged with the killing of an animal and fined $596, Williams said. Whether the children’s safety was jeopardized was not clear, she said.

Woman hurt in wreck with horse ‘guarded’ A Warren County woman injured after her car hit a horse Monday remained “guarded” at the University Medical Center, hospital spokesman Peggy Wagner said. Wagner said the term “guarded” means hospital personnel were keeping a close watch on Julia Lee Dunbar, and her condition was worse than fair, which it had been Monday, but not serious. Dunbar, 63, 1703 Standard Hill Road, was airlifted to the Jackson facility after her 1993 Honda Accord hit a horse in the 1200 block of Standard Hill Road, Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said Monday.

Board delays decision on spending State vote on Ceres house is Friday If you go for local benefit for coast cleanup By Danny Barrett Jr. email@example.com
By Steve Sanoski firstname.lastname@example.org A benefit concert for Gulf Coast cleanup efforts is planned for downtown, but Vicksburg’s mayor and aldermen want more details on the downtown show before allocating $500 in city funds for radio advertising. “What we want to do is get as many people involved and make this as successful as possible, because it is for the Gulf Coast,” WBBV-River 101 and K-Hits-104.5 representative Sabrina van den Nieuwboer told the board Monday. “We’re going to broadcast it live on both of our radio stations.” The concert is being put together by owners of three Washington Street businesses — Duff’s Tavern & Grille, The Upper End and Willingham’s — in conjunction with the Vicksburg Main Street Program. Organizers are still working to get an OK from the city to close a portion of Washington Street near Clay Street in front of the organizing businesses, in hopes of staging some of the entertainment outside and host a cookout. Main Street Executive Director Kim Hopkins said they’re also asking the city to waive the outdoor open container restriction for the event. Those issues are expected to come before the board at its meeting Friday, in addition to the advertisement request. The concert is set to begin at 2 p.m. July 31. A number of musicians and groups are confirmed for the show, including Jimbo Mathus, Rocket 88, L.C. Omar, The Owens Brothers Band, Seth Libbey and The Koestler Brothers, and even more have expressed an interest in participating. “At first it was planned for a much smaller event, but it’s kind of taken on a life of its own,” said Duff’s owner Les Pearman. “All of the people in this area have connections to somebody on the Gulf Coast. They’re our friends and neighbors, and we just want to bring some awareness and any relief we can.” Advance tickets to the benefit show are on sale for $12 at Duff’s. Tickets at the door will be $15. All of the pro-

JACKSON — A teenage lesbian who sued her school district over its ban of same-sex prom dates has accepted an offer to settle the case. American Civil Liberties Union attorneys representing Constance McMillen filed notice Monday in U.S. District Court to accept a judgment offer from the Itawamba County School District to pay $35,000, plus attorney’s fees. As part of the agreement, the school district also said it would follow a policy not to discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity in any educational or extracurricular activities. The ACLU said the case is precedent-setting because the
district is the first in Mississippi to implement a policy banning discrimination and harassment on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. “I’m so glad this is all over,” McMillen said in a statement today. “I won’t ever get my prom back, but it’s worth if it changes things at my
school.” A call to the school district in north Mississippi seeking comment wasn’t immediately returned. The ACLU filed a lawsuit in March when the district canceled a prom at Itawamba Agricultural High School after McMillen asked to bring her girlfriend to the event.

The Mississippi Department of Archives and History Board of Trustees will vote on whether to designate Ceres Plantation House a Mississippi Landmark at 10 a.m. Friday at the William F. Winter Archives & History Building, 200 North St., Jackson
Windows have been broken and planks vanished from the porch of the structure in recent months. The last business to operate there, a plant nursery, closed in 2007. Earlier this year, supervisors took two proposals to raze the home and heard one presentation on turning it into a tourist attraction, but delayed any action pending Friday’s decision by state authorities. Rent revenue expected from the house is not included in the commission’s budget for 2010-11, one that shows a $224,201 deficit for operations at Ceres and the E.W. Haining Industrial Center, which includes the Port of Vicksburg on the Yazoo Diversion Canal. Income projections include the $135,000 base rent paid by port operator Kinder Morgan, an amount that the commission hoped would grow by
another $100,000 via a more lucrative renewal that broke down after two years of negotiations. Revenue from cargo unloaded is up for the quarter but down for the year, as $422,793.47 has been collected on 24,654 tons through June, according to reports to the commission from the company. The five commissioners are appointed by the Warren County Board of Supervisors, one from each district.

Teen in prom flap agrees to settle By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press Writer
With no new inquiries about buying or moving the Ceres Plantation House, the Warren County Port Commission awaits a decision by state preservationists Friday on whether to designate the structure worth protecting. Commissioners, who manage county-owned industrial properties, had set the bar high for any firm wanting to purchase and move the house — at least five years of experience in moving residential structures and specific plans and time frames for taking the house off the county’s hands were part of a public notice. The dilapidated structure, parts of which are said to date to the 1830s, was acquired by the county with the grantfunded purchase in 1986 of 1,290 acres of what had been farmland at Flowers. The land was prepared for industrial use, but the house and other buildings were left standing. “Now the question becomes, ‘Is there enough original material in there?’ and the answer is no,” Wayne Mansfield, port commission executive director, said Monday. His word, however, is not final. The Mississippi Department of Archives and History Board of Trustees will decide whether to designate the sixbedroom, two-story house a Mississippi Landmark. Trustees meet at 10 a.m. in the William F. Winter Archives & History Building in Jackson. The session is open to the public. Landmark status would limit future development of the site under the state’s antiquities law. Supervisors have resolved to take any legal action necessary to fight the designation, which would limit future development on that part of the industrial park to federal guidelines and state approval.

Congress eyes new measures, incentives Obesity costs the United States at least $147 billion every year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports. Twothirds of adults and nearly one in three kids are either overweight or obese. Personal choices are at the heart of the problem; Americans should be encouraged to adopt healthier diets and to exercise more. But with health care costs still rising exponentially, Congress feels compelled to try to promote healthier choices. A bill introduced earlier this month by Rep. Ron Kind, D-Wis., proposes several measures to do that. Kind’s Healthy Choices Act, H.R. 5209, would make healthy foods more affordable and accessible to the people most at risk in rural areas and low-income areas of the nation’s cities and, presumably, here in Mississippi where poverty and weight problems go hand in hand. It would expand nutrition therapy in federal health programs, increase access to prevention programs
and increase federal support for partnerships between farmers and school districts to bring healthy food from field to lunchroom. It also envisions a loan program to encourage more retail food outlets in what Kind calls “food deserts.” The bill would establish body mass index as a vital sign. BMI would have to be included in the vaccination records for schoolage children. The records would be studied to see which demographic groups or geographic areas are most affected and to analyze the effectiveness of obesity prevention programs. The parents of children testing in the 95th percentile for BMI would receive information on obesity prevention. Critics, including Kind challenger Dan Kapanke, a Republican state senator from La Crosse, claim Kind is trying to deputize a federal food police and that the government has no authority to track such statistics. The CDC should track heart disease, dia-
betes and AIDS. These and obesity are public health issues and that’s a public concern. Regulating private behavior is a different proposition and, quite frankly, far more challenging. The bill also encourages better access to physical fitness programs through grants and the establishment of national standards for a physical education curriculum and makes grants available for local planners to ensure that development encourages physical activity. Kind’s bill has broad support from such groups as the American Heart Association, the Grocery Manufacturers Association and the National Association of Children’s Hospitals. It also has bipartisan support in the House. No single piece of legislation can persuade Americans to put down their cheeseburgers. But Kind’s bill might help the government get a better handle on the problem while offering incentives to promote healthier behavior.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler
We’ll be nice to them, so they’ll be nice to us? Anyone who believes that Gen. David H. Petraeus plans to overhaul the rules of engagement in Afghanistan due to the critical mass of ROEcaused casualties finally catching American’s attention just wasn’t listening to the general at his Senate confirmation hearing. But judging by both senatorial deference on the topic (Petraeus was confirmed 99-0) and a practically MIA media, that describes a lot of people. Here’s the first ROE question, submitted to the general prior to the hearing: “If confirmed, what general changes, if any, would you make to the current ROEs?” In response, Petraeus wrote: “One of my highest priorities, should I be confirmed as Commander of USFOR-A, will be to assess the effect of our ROE on the safety of our forces and the successful conduct of our mission.” “Assess,” he said, not “change.” But that was just the beginning. Yes, he declared there was a “moral imperative” to ensure that his “troopers” had the “enablers” (back-up firepower) they needed when they “got into a tough spot.” More to the main point — that restrictive ROEs are in fact the lynchpin of the disastrous
Most Americans don’t know what the ascendance of counterinsurgency doctrine in the U.S. military means.
counterinsurgency doctrine (COIN) that Petraeus, like Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, stands for — were Petraeus’ unequivocal statements indicating that the ROE issue was “more about executing than redesign,” that his overall policy review would “see if there are tweaks needed.” Tweaks? Or, as he stated in response to one senator’s question, “It’s really about the implementation of the rules of engagement and the tactical directive, both of which I think are fundamentally sound.” Fundamentally sound? “I don’t see any reason to change them in significant ways,” he continued. “Rather, what we do need to do
is make sure that the intent behind those, the intent being to reduce the loss of innocent civilian life in the course of military operations to an absolute minimum — that’s an imperative for any (counterinsurgency). We must achieve that. I have pledged to continue to do that, to continue the great work that General McChrystal did in that regard.” There’s your headline: Petraeus Pledges to Continue McChrystal’s “Great Work.” Most Americans don’t know what the ascendance of counterinsurgency doctrine in the U.S. military means. Judging by the failure of the senators to raise the topic with the most famous contemporary COIN
author seated before them, neither do our elected representatives. Some senators were obviously distressed by restrictive battle rules, but they didn’t seem to regard them as a crucial means to COIN’s fantasy-end: winning so-called hearts and minds. The whole nation-building endeavor, too, is just another COIN fantasy effort designed to make them like us. “Soldiers and Marines are expected to be nation-builders as well as warriors,” Petraeus himself co-wrote in the foreword of the 2007 COIN manual (with Gen. F. James Amos, recently tapped to serve as the new Marine Commandant). “They must be prepared to help re-establish institutions and local security forces and assist in rebuilding infrastructure and basic services. They must be able to facilitate establishing local governance and the rule of law. The list of such tasks is long ...” You can say that again. Better, though, for our elected representatives to have read just that statement back to Gen. Petraeus and to have asked for a reaction, a reckoning, his defense of a theory that, I would argue (and frequently do), has for
years misused and abused the U.S. military through its willful ignorance of the Islam-West culture clash that forever dooms all of our do-gooding. The Great Society, it’s worth recalling, didn’t work here on our own people. It’s no more plausible, even at ROE-controlled gunpoint, on an alien society. History confirms this. The United States engaged in intensive Afghan nation-building between 1946 and 1979 — specifically, in Helmand Province, now, ironically, a Taliban stronghold. In other words, the program was not, as Gen. Petraeus told the Senate, “hugely successful.” For details, read Indiana University History professor Nick Cullather’s 2002 paper, “From New Deal to New Frontier in Afghanistan,” which is available online. It catalogues decades of failure apparent as far back as 1949. “If illusions doomed the project they also created and sustained it,” Cullather wrote, summing up American denial on Afghanistan. And for the ages. •

Q: Does it save my children from any hardship if we choose to put our investments and accounts into a trust instead of just relying on a will? — V.R., via e-mail A: Unfortunately, you ask a question that can only be answered based on a person’s specific circumstances. A major difference between a trust and a will is that a BRUCE trust is
lapses erupted into a global recall crisis late last year. The automaker has recalled more than 8.5 million vehicles worldwide since October, including 6 million in the U.S. alone, to address the possibility of unintended acceleration and to fix a braking problem in its Prius hybrid. In February, Toyota was subpoenaed by a U.S. federal grand jury seeking documents r e l at e d t o unintended acceleration in its vehicles and the braking system of its Prius hybrid. Earlier this year, Michigan’s attorney general also asked Toyota to submit information on the recent U.S. recalls, Toyota spokeswoman Ririko Takeuchi said. She declined to elaborate. Toyota paid a record $16.4 million fine for being slow to recall vehicles with an accelerator pedal problem and is facing hundreds of state and federal lawsuits. Congress is considering an upgrade to auto safety laws in the aftermath of the Toyota recalls that began in October. In Tokyo, Toyota shares fell 2.6 percent today to close at 3,055 yen before the subpoena announcement was made.
TOKYO (AP) — Toyota Motor Corp. said today it has been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury in New York to submit documents related to problems with rods that connect a vehicle’s steering system to its front wheels. The world’s largest automaker, which is trying to repair a reputation damaged by recalls of millions of cars worldwide since October, said the federal grand jury issued the subpoena to its U.S. subsidiary in late June. Toyota said it was the company’s second subpoena from a federal grand jury — a panel that can determine whether evidence exists to bring criminal charges. “The company and its subsidiary are sincerely cooperating with authorities on the probe,” Toyota said in a statement. Defective steering relay rods led Toyota to recall 4Runner sports utility vehicles and T100 pickups in the United States in 2005. Toyota said the grand jury’s subpoena did not specify vehicle models and it was not clear that the subpoena was linked to the 2005 recall, which came several years before safety
private and a will is a public document. Many times it is much easier to put assets into a trust. However, if your estate is relatively modest, then that isn’t really necessary. A competent estate planner can sort out the details for you. Caution: There are many companies that specialize in trusts that will push you into setting one up because it generates fees for them. •

County Continued from Page A1. “What worries me is that a couple of them owe a pile of money,” District 4 Supervisor Bill Lauderdale said of the remaining slate of 147 parcels owing amounts varying from less than $1,000 to more than $30,000. “It’s not fair to those who pay it. I’m not for people going out of business, but it’s the principle of not paying.” State law also allows seizures or lockouts if authorities believe the debtor is a flight risk, a process that starts by filing a notice of tax lien with the Circuit Clerk’s Office and issuing a “jeopardy warrant” if the office believes collection of taxes will be jeopardized by delay. Personal property taxes must be paid by Oct. 1 before any court action begins for a current year, Tax Collector Antonia Flaggs Jones said. Once served, any personal property seized can be sold at public auction until all the debt and related expenses are satisfied. No padlocks have been affixed to any businesses this year, as Sheriff Martin Pace has chosen to apply the law in an advisory way instead of a punitive one. Jones said 90 such liens filed in court covered 2008, and that the total of liens has not varied much in her 15 years working in the tax collector’s office. Pace indicated the job of organizing the warrants
On the agenda Meeting Monday, Warren County supervisors: • Authorized advertising road resurfacing and lanestriping projects for parts of seven streets: Blossom Lane, Old Jackson Road, Newmans Road and Kirkland Road. • Authorized $70,000 in county funds toward the cost of a new fire truck for the Bovina Volunteer Fire Department. The $199,988,1,300-gallon pumper was financed mostly by the state’s Rural Fire Truck Acquisition Assistance Program. • Approved renewing a contract with Delta Computer Systems to maintain the county’s land and court records. The cost will increase by about $340 a month, County Administrator John Smith said.
• Approved a $100 ad in the St. Aloysius High School football program. • Recognized District 3 Supervisor Charles Selmon’s election as first vice president of the Mississippi Association of Supervisors. • Approved reappointing Tom Hill to the Vicksburg Bridge Commission on the recommendation of District 1 Supervisor David McDonald. • Approved five appointments to Foreign Trade Zone Inc., a business development group of public and industry officials from Vicksburg and Jackson. Named to serve on the panel were McDonald, Mayor Paul Winfield, retired state employment department official Benny Terrell, businessman Fred Farrell and Warren County Port Commission Project Manager Katrina Shirley.
for service has continued, though at a clip slower than the liens. Of 57 warrants reported to have been considered this fiscal year, deputies attempted to serve at least 32 of them, officials said. The department acknowledged the other 25 await determination on whether it’s feasible to pursue them. “A lot of papers we’ve gotten is where the business no longer exists,” Pace said, placing an emphasis on cases he said are too tough to enforce due to logistics. “On
those one person owns the building and someone else had the business, there’s no way to contact them. We’re not driving to Orlando to serve one.” In May, an attorney general’s opinion requested by the county — at Pace’s behest — reaffirmed the little-used state law’s intent to have the sheriff as the enforcement arm on personal property taxes.
Mississippi’s 30 statelicensed casinos saw slight uptick in winnings from gamblers in June compared to last year, according to figures released Monday by the Department of Revenue. Players left behind $189.6 million in June, up about $400,000 from June 2009,
when Mississippi’s casinos won $189.2 million. Despite the ongoing oil crisis, the 11 casinos on the coast fared better in June than their 19 counterparts along the Mississippi River — including Vicksburg, Tunica, Greenville, Lula and Natchez casinos. Coast casi-
Afghan leader Karzai says goal unchanged KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — President Hamid Karzai today reaffirmed his commitment for Afghan police and soldiers to take charge of security nationwide by 2014 and urged his international backers to distribute more of their development aid through the government. Karzai spoke at a one-day international conference on Afghanistan’s future that comes at a critical juncture: NATO and Afghan forces have launched a major operation to drive the Taliban out of their strongholds, and the insurgents are pushing back. Rockets fired at the Kabul airport today forced the diversion of a plane carrying U.N. Secretary-General Ban Kimoon and Sweden’s foreign minister. Wearing a traditional striped robe and peaked fur hat, Karzai said that Afghanistan and its Western allies share “a vicious common enemy.” But, he said, victory will come in giving Afghans as much responsibility as possible in combatting the insurgency within its borders. He was flanked by international diplomats including Ban and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. “I remain determined that our Afghan national security forces will be responsible for
all military and law enforcement operations throughout our country by 2014” — more than three years after President Barack Obama’s date for the start of an American troop drawdown, Karzai said. Karzai’s reference to a “vicious enemy” appeared at odds with his recent more reconciliatory stance toward the Taliban and willingness to hold peace talks to end the nearly nine-year war amid growing recognition that the insurgents are unlikely to be defeated militarily. Clinton sought to allay concerns over the US military drawdown. “We have no intention of abandoning our long-term mission of achieving a stable, secure, peaceful Afghanistan. Too many nations — especially Afghanistan — have suffered too many losses to see this country slide backward,” she said. NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the alliance will never allow the Taliban to topple the government of Afghanistan. “Our mission will end when — but only when — the Afghans are able to maintain security on their own,” he said. The prolonged conflict has hobbled development in the impoverished country.
nos took in $87.2 million last month, up $3 million from $84.2 million in June 2009. River casinos won $102.3 million last month, down nearly $3 million from the $105 million won in June 2009. The figures do not include the two Indian reservation casinos in the state, which

ing with his attorney at the Warren County Sheriff’s Office for a scheduled interview. He was presented with evidence gathered by Warren County Sheriff’s Office Fire Investigator Mike
Traxler and the State Fire Marshal’s Office, Pace said. “Mike Traxler has recovered all of the contents (of Galey’s home), and they are being stored in evidence,” Pace said. “The investigators
are doing a very thorough job.” Members of the LeTourneau, Fisher Ferry, Culkin and Bovina volunteer fire departments responded to the blaze Saturday morn-

Jobless benefits set for second vote
If filibuster broken, measure will allow 2.5M to receive payments WASHINGTON (AP) — Millions of people stuck on the jobless rolls would receive an extension of unemployment benefits averaging $309 a week under a Senate bill that appears set to break free of a Republican filibuster. Democrats have stripped the unemployment insurance measure down to the bare essentials ahead of this afternoon’s vote, which is a do-over of a tally taken late last month. With West Virginia Democrat Carte Goodwin poised to claim the seat of the late Robert Byrd, two Republicans will be needed to vault the measure over the filibuster hurdle. Maine GOP moderates Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins are expected to provide the key votes to create a filibuster-breaking tally on a key procedural test. The measure was expected to pass late today. The House would take it up Wednesday and then send it to President Barack Obama for his signature. If all goes as expected, about 2.5 million people will receive jobless benefits retroactively. Instead of being dropped from a federal program that extends benefits for those whose six
The associated press
President Barack Obama speaks Monday about extending unemployment insurance. months of state-paid benefits have run out, millions of others will continue to receive payments. But first, Obama and his Democratic allies are pressing the issue for maximum political advantage, blaming Republicans for the impasse that halted unemployment checks for people unable to find work as the jobless rate remains close to 10 percent. Obama launched a fresh salvo Monday, demanding the Senate act on the legislation — after a vote already had been scheduled — and blasting Republicans for the
holdup. “The same people who didn’t have any problem spending hundreds of billions of dollars on tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans are now saying we shouldn’t offer relief to middle-class Americans,” Obama said. Republicans say they do favor the benefits but are insisting they be paid for with spending cuts elsewhere in the government’s $3.7 trillion budget. After initially feeling heat this winter when a lone GOP senator, Jim Bunning of Kentucky, briefly blocked a benefits extension in Feb-

ruary, the GOP has grown increasingly comfortable opposing the legislation. The providing of additional weeks of jobless benefits in the midst of bad times has been regarded as routine, and the latest cycle of additional benefits began in 2008, the last year of George W. Bush’s administration. “For a long time, there has been a tradition under both Democratic and Republican presidents to offer relief to the unemployed,” Obama said. “That was certainly the case under my predecessor, when Republicans several times voted to extend emergency unemployment benefits.” But with conservative voters and tea party activists up in arms about the deficit, conservative Republicans have adopted a harder line that has caused three interruptions of jobless benefits. “What the president isn’t telling the American people is that many of us in the Senate are fighting to make sure our children and grandchildren aren’t buried under a mountain of debt,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. “If we are going to extend unemployment benefits, then let’s do it without adding to our record debt.”

Oil Continued from Page A1. Allen said. Also, seepage from the sea floor was detected over the weekend less than two miles away, but Allen said it probably has nothing to do with the well. Oil and gas are known to ooze naturally from fissures in the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico. At a Monday afternoon briefing in Washington, Allen said BP could keep the cap closed at least another 24 hours, as long as the company remained alert for leaks. Since the cap was closed Thursday, beachgoers have reported less oil fouling the shore. Bob Broadway, 41, of Huntsville, Ala., said his vacation spot in Orange Beach, Ala., has improved from a month ago. Then, he said, the oil was thick “like chocolate” and the beach smelled like “an old mechanic’s garage.” “The beach looks better now than before,” he said Monday. BP and the government had been at odds over the company’s desire to simply leave the cap in place and employ
Mississippi Sound open to rec fishing PASCAGOULA (AP) — The Mississippi Sound has been opened to catch-andrelease recreational fishing. The opening took effect at 12:01 this morning. It includes live bait shrimping. The announcement was made Monday by state environmental quality and marine resources agencies. Commercial fishing remains closed. it like a giant cork in a bottle until a relief well being drilled deep underground can be used to plug up the well permanently. Allen initially said his preference was to pipe oil through the cap to tankers on the surface to reduce the slight chance that the buildup of pressure inside the well would cause a new blowout. That plan would require releasing millions more gallons of oil into the ocean for a few days during the transition — a spectacle BP apparently wants to avoid. On Monday, Allen budged a bit, saying unless larger

He said anglers who go to Louisiana waters to fish cannot transport the fish back to Mississippi. problems develop, he’s not inclined to open the cap. Also on the table: Pumping drilling mud through the top of the cap and into the well bore to stop up the oil flow. The idea is similar to the failed top kill plan that couldn’t overcome the pressure of the geyser pushing up. BP said it could work now because there’s less oil to fight against, but it wasn’t clear how such a method would affect the cap’s stability. Allen said the relief well was still the plan for a permanent fix. BP and the government are still trying to under-
Claiborne Continued from Page A1. to the county’s insurance agents for a defense lawyer to be assigned, Davis said. He did not know who will represent him, the department or Claiborne County, he said. Penley said the suit “speaks for itself.” Though the brothers were initially stopped by a Warren County deputy, its officials were not included in the suit. The complaint outlined the sequence of events that took place in the early morning hours. It says Joseph Rader was notified his car had been abandoned on Jeff Davis Road, about six miles from their home. Joseph and Wesley Rader went to retrieve it with Fred Rader Sr. following in another car. They repaired a flat tire and while on their way home were stopped by Warren County deputies at Redbone Road. The vehicle was searched but “failed to reveal any evidence of any criminal act,” the suit states. The suit claims that Warren County deputies contacted Claiborne County authorities for unspecified reasons. When those deputies arrived, it states, they handcuffed Joseph and Wesley Rader and took them to the Claiborne County Sheriff’s Department, holding them without charging them until

stand why pressure readings from the well are lower than expected. Allen offered two possible explanations: The reservoir the oil is gushing from is dwindling, or there is an undiscovered leak somewhere down in the well. Work on a permanent plug is moving steadily, with crews drilling into the side of the ruptured well from deep underground. By next week, they could start blasting in mud and cement to block off the well for good.

wrongful imprisonment,” it states. The U.S. Constitution’s Fourth Amendment prohibits unreasonable search and seizure and requires arrest warrants to be supported by probable cause. In Mississippi, a landmark 1969 ruling, Davis vs. Mississippi, which went to the U.S. Supreme Court, held that the Fourth Amendment applies to involuntary detention of people during investigations as well as after accusations have been formally made. Penley said the Claiborne County charge against Freddie Rader was a felony, but he was not sure of the exact charge. A spokesman with the Circuit Court Clerk’s Office could not confirm if he’d been convicted of a crime there. Freddie Rader, 43, had been convicted on sale of cocaine in Warren County in 2003, and last month was found guilty of violating probation from that case and sentenced to three years in prison. Another member of the family, Adam Rader, 27, was sentenced on June 11 to 20 years in prison for manslaughter after pleading guilty to the April 12, 2009, shooting of Danny Miller, who was 25.

HEGGINS P ORTABLE B UILDINGS Joseph Rader’s brother, Freddie Rader, appeared to face unspecified charges. Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said his records indicate Claiborne County deputies were called that night because they had issued a “be on the lookout for” bulletin for a car similar to the one the Raders were driving. The car had been identified at the scene of a Claiborne County shooting, he said. Records of the stop indicate that Claiborne County deputies intended to impound the car, Pace said, and its two occupants rode back to Port Gibson with the Claiborne County deputy. Pace said it is not unusual for law enforcement officials in neighboring counties to cooperate in such investigations. The suit does not specify how long the Raders were held, but Penley said it was several hours. Similar complaints of “abuse, excessive force and/ or wrongful imprisonment” previously had been made against deputies there, the suit alleges. “If properly trained, every officer ... would have known of the illegality of the defendants’ conduct on the date in question and the plaintiff’s

NATCHEZ — Three Vicksburg junior golfers made a strong showing at the Norman Puckett Memorial Natchez Junior Championship Golf Tournament on Monday, as all three cracked the top five in the 19-player field. St. Aloysius senior Chris Ingram took the Division A (ages 16-18) title and first place overall with an evenpar round on the par 71 Duncan Park Golf Course. Warren Central sophomore Parker Rutherford won first place in Division B (ages 14-15) and second place overall, carding a 72. St. Al sophomore Nick Mekus finished second in Division B and tied for fourth overall with a 74. After nine holes, Rutherford was at one-under with a five stroke lead over Ingram, who struggled on the front after shooting a plus-four 39, carding three bogeys and a double bogey offset by only one birdie. Rutherford opened the back nine with a birdie on 10, but he had a succession of bogeys on 11, 12 and 13 to put him at plus-one, which he held through the last five holes. Ingram lit up the back nine with a 32.

Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox argues a call with umpire Joe West, right, after Braves reliever Jonny Venters was ejected for hitting Milwaukee Brewers batter Prince
Fielder with a pitch Saturday. Cox and Venters were suspended for tonight’s game against San Diego.
Cox, Venters suspended By The Associated Press NEW YORK — Atlanta Braves pitcher Jonny Venters was suspended for four games and fined by Major League Baseball on Monday for throwing consecutive pitches at Milwaukee’s Prince Fielder last weekend. Baseball’s vice president in charge of discipline, Bob Watson, also said Braves manager Bobby Cox has been suspended for one game. Cox will serve the suspension during today’s game against San Diego. Venters will start his penalty today
mlb unless the players’ association appeals. “I think it’s in everybody’s best interests that the physical well-being of the players should be foremost,” Brewers manager Ken Macha said. “My point of view is that it behooves everybody that Prince is able to go out and play all 162 and not have a broken wrist or dislocated back.” Venters and Cox were ejected for their actions Saturday. Cox’s ejection was his record 156th and third this season.
One inning after Fielder’s homer started a five-run inning for the Brewers in a 6-3 win, Venters threw a pitch over his head. Plate umpire Angel Hernandez warned both benches and Venters hit Fielder in the back with the next pitch. Cox earned an automatic ejection when he came out of the dugout to argue. Watson said he was suspended for Venters’ intentional actions after a warning had been issued. “I don’t really care,” Fielder said.
Miller awaits lots of open 3s
Richardson drove in another run with a single in the fifth to make it 3-1 and Thompson did the rest. He scattered four hits and two walks while striking out five to pick up his sixth win of the season. Tim Collins pitched the seventh Antoan inning for his Richardson first save of the season. The M-Braves had another 2-1 lead in game two but couldn’t hold it. Frey scored on a passed ball to tie it in the bottom of the fifth, then the BayBears batted around in the sixth to take the lead. Bryan Byrne reached base on a one-out walk, went to second on a single by Sean Coughlin, then scored on Hankerd’s double. Frey later singled in another run and Ollie Linton drew a walk with the bases loaded to give Mobile a 5-2 lead. The M-Braves got the tying run to the plate with one out in the seventh, but closer Daniel Stange worked his way out of trouble. He struck out Richardson for the second out, then got Pastornicky to ground out to short for the final out. Stange earned his second save. Mississippi reliever Jaye Chapman (1-4) took the loss. Frey finished 3-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and two runs scored for Mobile. 8
NFL’s leading rusher gets a massive raise By The Associated Press
By The Associated Press MIAMI — With just about every Miami Heat acquisition this summer, another recruiting story seems to emerge. Dwyane Wade helped lure LeBron James and Chris Bosh. James played a big role in talking Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Mike Miller into coming to Miami. And now, Miller is taking a turn. Only days after signing with Miami, Miller is talking to close pal Jason Williams about reuniting with the team. Williams started at point guard for the Heat during Miami’s championship season in 2006. “I’d love to have him,” said Miller, who spoke to Williams on Sunday. “Obviously, it has to work out on both sides. J-Will would have to want to come back and Miami would have to be good with that. I just talked to him more as a friend, just to see how he’s doing and what he’s thinking about doing. I’m just excited for him. He had an unbelievable year last year and we’ll see what happens in the future here.” It might be a long shot, get-
The Mississippi Braves missed a chance to get back into first place on Monday. Cyle Hankerd drove in the go-ahead run with an RBI double in the bottom of the sixth inning, and the Mobile BayBears tacked on a pair of insurance runs to win the second game of a doubleheader 5-2. The M-Braves won the first game 3-1 behind pitcher Jacob Thompson, who allowed four hits and one run in six strong innings. That victory, combined with Montgomery’s loss to Tennessee, would have allowed the M-Braves to move into a tie for first with a win in game two. Instead, Mississippi slipped back into a three-way tie with Mobile and Jacksonville for second place in the Southern League’s South Division. All three teams are a game behind Montgomery. Mississippi and Mobile wrap up their four-game series tonight at 7:05 in Mobile. The M-Braves then return home to Trustmark Park for a five-game series against the Tennessee Smokies beginning Thursday at 7:05 p.m. On Monday, Mobile scored its only run of game one in the first inning. Evan Frey drew a leadoff walk and scored on a double by Konrad Schmidt. The M-Braves took the lead for good with two runs in the third. Tyler Pastornicky tied it with an RBI single, then an errant pickoff throw allowed Antoan Richardson to score the go-ahead run that made it 2-1.

nba ting Williams back to Miami. Fortunately for the Heat, Miller didn’t need much convincing. He agreed to a deal with Miami shortly after James said he was coming to join Wade and Bosh. Like at least four other players — James, Wade, Bosh and Udonis Haslem — Miller took significantly less money from Heat owner Micky Arison than he could have made elsewhere in order to be part of the rebuilt Miami roster. Miller took a five-year deal worth around $25 million. So far this summer, Miami has
closed roughly $400 million worth of deals, and done so at what might be considered around the league as bargain prices. “In order for it to happen, it took a lot of moving parts to come together,” Miller said. “For one, (Heat president) Pat Riley had to do an amazing job to clear cap space, and then Mr. Arison had to go out and spend every dollar he could possibly spend to get everybody and then guys had to take less.” Miller isn’t sure if he’ll start for Miami this coming season, nor has he been told exactly what role he’ll have.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Chris Johnson’s agent said the running back and the Tennessee Titans have agreed on a revised deal that will ensure he reports with the rest of the team for training camp. Agent Joel Segal confirmed the deal Monday to The Associated Press. Segal would not say how much of a raise Johnson is getting, but did say the running will get a pay increase. Johnson will reportedly earn $2.5 million this season under the revised deal. It’s not the minimum $30 million in guaranteed money the AP 2009 Offensive Player of the Year had been saying he wanted after becoming just the sixth back to run for at least 2,000 yards. However, he no longer will be the lowest-paid running back on the Titans roster with a base salary of $550,000. The raise will also prevent him from missing training camp when the Titans report on July 30 after sitting out the entire offseason in protest. Profootballtalk.com first reported the deal. The Titans declined to confirm the deal Monday, and Johnson did not respond to messages left on his cell phone by the AP. The avid tweeter also had posted only one message Monday, a rare drought for the running back. Team officials had insisted Johnson was under contract for three more years and that
NFL rules limiting pay hikes to 30 percent in the league’s labor agreement made it impossible to give Johnson a huge raise. Chris Almost all of Johnson the money for a new long-term deal would have been paid up front, which the Titans were not willing to do. Johnson won the ESPY for breakthrough athlete last week and promised he would be happy even with a small raise for the short-term. “When they do something, I’ll be proud to be there with my teammates,” Johnson said on July 14. Johnson still wants a longterm deal, but for now he can focus reaching his next goal — Eric Dickerson’s NFL rushing record of 2,105 set in 1984. Johnson came up just short with his 2,006 yards even as the Titans focused on trying to get him to the 2,000-mark in the final games of the 2009 season. Johnson already ranks behind only Dickerson (3,318) and Edgerrin James (3,262) for the most yards in the first two years of a career with 3,234. Johnson also will be trying to match Barry Sanders’ record of 14 consecutive 100-yard rushing games; he finished the 2009 season with 11 in a row.

Football Saints sign seventhround pick out of OSU METARIE, La. — The New Orleans Saints have signed their seventh-round draft pick, quarterback Sean Canfield. The Super Bowl champs announced the four-year deal on Monday. No financial terms were released. Canfield was the Saints’ final pick of April’s draft, taken with the 239th overall selection from Oregon State. The 6-foot-4, 223-pound lefthander was an All-Pac 10 Conference first team selection as a senior. He started all 13 games for the Beavers, completing 303 of 446 pass attempts for 3,271 yards with 21 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
NCAA investigating Florida football GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida and the NCAA are investigating an allegation that former Gators offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey received $100,000 from a representative of a sports agent before last season ended, ESPN.com reported Monday. The allegation stated Pouncey received the money between Florida’s loss to Alabama in the Southeastern Conference title game and its Sugar Bowl win over Cincinnati, according to the report. The alleged representative was not named. “We were made aware of some information in early June that we reported to law enforcement and we then shared with the NCAA and the SEC,” Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said in a statement. “At this time, we have no information that has indicated that there are any compliance issues for the University of Florida.” Pouncey was selected 18th overall in this year’s NFL draft. His brother, Mike, will be a senior offensive lineman with the Gators next season. Pouncey’s agent is Joel Segal, but the allegation is not necessarily tied to him. A message left at Segal’s office Monday seeking comment was not immediately returned. If the allegation is true, Pouncey could be ruled ineligible for the Sugar Bowl game and Florida might have to vacate the victory among other potential penalties.

No Holliday, no problem for Cards ST. LOUIS (AP) — No worries about offense on Matt Holliday’s day off. The St. Louis Cardinals had plenty of it without their cleanup hitter. Albert Pujols’ two-run home run in the fifth inning began a barrage of four long balls in a span of six at-bats and Blake Hawksworth survived a rocky start in the St. Louis Cardinals’ 8-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night. They didn’t need Holliday, who got a day off. “That was something you didn’t see too much in the first half, but we knew it was coming around,” Pujols said. “Hopefully we can continue to swing the bats the way we are, and play defense, too.” Rookie Allen Craig added his first career homer and Skip Schumaker hit his third of the season in a five-run fifth against Kyle Kendrick. Randy Winn led off the sixth with a pinch-hit shot off Chad Durbin. The four-homer game tied a season best for the NL Central leaders, who have won a season-high six in a row and are a season-best 11 games over .500 (52-41). Kendrick (5-4) surrendered seven runs in five innings, coughing up a 4-2 lead as the Phillies lost for the fourth time in five games. Ryan Howard, who grew up in suburban St. Louis, had two hits and an RBI and is a .382 hitter with seven homers and 30 RBIs in 18 games at 5-year-old Busch Stadium. Kendrick had been 4-0 with a

in which Cardinals manager Tony La Russa joked, “We couldn’t hit the ball past the pitcher.” This time, they reached the seats.
“My command was off all night,” Kendrick said. “I got behind, I left pitches up. They should be hit where they hit them.” The two-time defending National League champions are six games out in the NL East, matching a season low. “It’s not over,” shortstop Jimmy Rollins said. “The guys with the bats and the balls, they control what the pen says.” Jon Jay doubled for the second time for an RBI before Pujols hit his 22nd homer and first since the All-Star break for a 5-4 lead. Pujols also doubled and had a run-scoring groundout. The three-homer inning was the Cardinals’ first since June 19, 2009, when Ryan Ludwick hit a grand slam and Rick Ankiel and Khalil Greene connected on consecutive at-bats off Kyle Davies at Kansas City. The Cardinals have four fourhomer games this season, but hadn’t hit four at home since July 17, 2008. Hawksworth (4-5) gave up five hits and needed 32 pitches to get out of the first, but scattered five hits over the next five innings. Hawksworth, one of the rotation fill-ins for injured Brad Penny and Kyle Lohse, worked six innings for the second straight start to match his career best. “That could have gotten ugly,” Hawksworth said. “But you try to forget the things that happened early in the game, and just focus on the present and the next pitch.”

He was 70. His agent, Merritt Blake, said Monday that Gammon had cancer and died Friday at his daughter’s home in Costa Mesa. The craggy-faced actor also played the father on the Don Johnson TV show “Nash Bridges.” David Blackwell — A pre-eminent mathematician and the first black scholar in the National Academy of Sciences has died. He was 91. Blackwell died of natural causes at a hospital on July 8, University of California, Berkeley, officials said. Blackwell was the first tenured black professor at the campus, where he taught for nearly 35 years.

Bullock renews restraining order Sandra Bullock obtained a temporary restraining order Monday against a 41-year-old man accused of stalking the Oscar-winning actress since 2003. Bullock’s attorney obtained the protective order on her behalf against Thomas James Weldon, who has been the subject of previous court orders to stay away from the 45-year-old Sandra actress. Bullock A hearing for a three-year order against Weldon was set for Aug. 6. Bullock first obtained a restraining order in California against Weldon in 2003, but that order expired in 2009. He voluntarily entered a mental institution in Tennessee, and the actress sued the state in 2006 to require them to notify her of his release.
Husband: Gabor OK after hip surgery Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband thinks she’ll be watching “Jeopardy” again in no time. Prince Frederic von Anhalt, the 93-year-old actress’s husband, told a throng of reporters gathered outside their Bel-Air home Monday that Gabor underwent successful surgery to replace her right hip, which she broke over the weekend while watching her favorite game show. He said she tumbled to the floor when she tried to Zsa Zsa Gabor answer the phone. “It’s just bad luck,” von Anhalt said. “It could happen to anyone.” Gabor, who has to use a wheelchair after being partially paralyzed in a 2002 car accident, was in surgery for 3 1/2 hours at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, according to von Anhalt. He said she remained heavily sedated but in good spirits Monday and would likely be recuperating in the hospital for four or five days before returning home.

Owner of giant emerald still a mystery The Los Angeles case of who really owns the mysterious 840-pound Bahia Emerald is far from over. After hearing arguments on behalf of one claimant that a rival’s ownership bid should be denied, Superior Court Judge John A. Kronstadt said Monday he will rule on that issue later. Meantime, he asked the The Bahia Emerald small army of attorneys present in his courtroom to find an agreeable date next month to return for a follow-up hearing and possible start of a trial to determine the real owner. At least three people lay claim to the $400-million-dollar rock dug up in Brazil in 2001. The boulder-sized gem traveled a circuitous route through New Orleans, Idaho and Las Vegas before authorities seized it.
Playboy launches new work-safe website CHICAGO (AP) — Finally, something for those guys who say they read Playboy for the articles: a chance to prove it. Playboy Enterprises Inc. launched a website today that it swears will be safe to browse while at work, eliminating the need for men to throw themselves over their computer screen when the boss walks by. TheSmokingJacket.com will contain none of the nudity that makes Playboy.com NSFW — not suitable for work. Instead, it’ll rely on humor to reach Playboy’s target audience, men 25 to 34 years old, when they are most likely to be in front of a computer screen. “A lot of our audience logs on (to Playboy.com) after work and we saw that we were missing a golden opportunity to reach guys when they’re online the most: when they’re sitting at their desk, not working, sending e-mails to their friends,” said Jimmy Jellinek, Playboy’s editorial director. The site, named after one of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner’s favorite pieces of clothing (silkpajamas.com was taken), won’t include the long interviews or in-depth articles found in Playboy. Instead, it’s meant to be decidedly un-serious. Or, in the parlance of its audience, ROFL — rolling on the floor, laughing. And cool, “basically a juke box of cool,” said Jellinek. Among the original content visitors to the site will see is a list of signs that show a man has given up trying to attract women. They include wearing Velcro sneakers and pants with elastic waistbands — clothing Hef wouldn’t be caught dead wearing, if he thought of wearing anything but his trademark jammies.

Matt Gibbs, lead producer for Playboy’s new website The site will dip into the Playboy archives with photographs like those from the 1983 Playmate Playoffs, in which bathing suit-clad women competed in games such as a tugof-war. There will be links to the kinds of things people are already e-mailing their friends, from funny moments on television shows such as “The Colbert Report” and “The Daily Show” to a Korean Parliament brawl that’s been a big web hit recently. “It’s all about social currency,” Jellinek said. “You want to be the first guy of your friends to send the funny joke, the crazy video ... You can be the coolest guy among your friends if you’re the first person to circulate this information among them.” “The ideal is to be ... the go-to site for those who are bored at work,” said Matt Gibbs, the

Carter, country musician from La., dies at age 76 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Fred Carter Jr., a longtime Nashville studio musician and father of country musician Deana Carter, has died. He was 76. He died of complications from a stroke Saturday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Tennessee, according to an obituary and funeral arrangements released Monday by a public relations firm. Born in Louisiana, Carter began his career as a staff guitarist on the Shreveport-based country music show known as the “Louisiana Hayride.” He settled in Nashville in the late 1950s as a session player and worked with a steady

Some folks work hard; others hardly work Dear Abby: I understand the frustration of “Takes My Job Seriously” (June 1), the supervisor who complained about her women employees requesting time off for kids’ school and sports events or beauty appointments. Over the last few years, I have noticed a decline in work ethic across the board. Phone calls go unreturned, workers stand around idle and errors are made on important forms. People seem to do the minimum necessary to make it to the end of the day, and supervisors aren’t much different. They allow this behavior. Years ago, people worked hard for their money. Now they hardly work. — Getting the Job Done Dear Getting: Your letter was one of many I received filled with interesting — and varied — comments on this topic. Read on: Dear Abby: I am the owner of a recruiting company, and I agree with the writer’s views on the quality of today’s work force. I hear from many frustrated clients seeking employees who actually want to work for their paycheck. We have

turned into an entitlement society. No one wants to take responsibility for his/her work or life any longer. And they expect big-time money for no responsibility. — Valerie in Georgia Dear Abby: “TMJS” fails to take into consideration the evolution of the work force. Not only are there more women working now, but we usually work far beyond the regular 9-to-5 grind. As a single mom, I need flexibility in my schedule to get everything done that’s demanded of me at work and at home. I take my laptop home every night and work after my son goes to sleep. “TMJS” may feel superior because I’m not in the office as much as she is, but I’ll bet I work more hours per week. Technology now allows us the
flexibility of choice. — Bonnie C. Dear Abby: I supervise several younger women. Studies have shown that while these employees want to do a good job, they find it equally important to have “work/life” balance. I actually think they are smarter than we are. We tend to overwork and feel guilty if we take a day for ourselves. If they take the time they have earned and use it for what they enjoy — good for them. — Workaholic in Fort Collins Dear Abby: “TMJS” should update her management training. While we mourn the loss of the way things were, there have been positive changes as well. Understanding diversity in the workplace is imperative for a successful manager. My 20-year-old would be shocked at the concept of staying in one job for 45 years — but that was the norm in my dad’s day. In this global economy, “different” does not equal “bad.” — Patty in Lancaster, Pa. Dear Abby: “TMJS” must have entered the work force when companies still took care of loyal, longtime employ-
ees by providing good benefits and job security. It paid to go the extra mile for your employer because you knew your company would return the favor when needed. In recent years this has changed. Workers today realize that sacrificing their personal life for their professional one does not necessarily reap any benefits. The so-called breakdown of the family unit may be the result of workers dedicating themselves more to their jobs than to their home lives. — Family First in Texas Dear Abby: I supervise young, highly paid federal employees and expect them to work hard for the money taxpayers pay them. They seem to think their personal problems should be mine. I disagree. A job is a privilege too many people fail to appreciate until it’s gone. — Serious, Too, in the Southwest

be used for longer than seven or eight days. The herb is commonly taken in the early evening, since it takes from six to 12 hours to work. Cascara sagrada is one of the few herbs approved as an over-the-counter product by the FDA. The product should not be used by people with congestive heart failure, severe anemia, cancer of the GI tract, liver, kidney or diverticular disease, ulcerative colitis and a number of other conditions. It should not be used by women who are pregnant
or plan to become pregnant, those with allergies or stomach pain, or in conjunction with prescription or nonprescription medications, herbals or dietary supplements. I have no experience with this remedy for constipation and recommend that you speak with your doctor. Side effects include allergic reactions, such as hives and itching, rectal bleeding, difficulty breathing, abdominal cramping, potassium loss and a few other unwanted symptoms. It can also turn urine pink, red, violet, yellow, brown or black. Your physician should be consulted to determine whether your constipation is caused by a specific medical condition that should be addressed. While waiting for an appointment, modify your
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: My three best friends, all 16, lost their virginity this summer. All three also said sex wasn’t as great as they thought it would be, but they were glad to have experienced it. I’m not going out and having sex so I can join the crowd, but somehow I feel left out. — Nameless, Providence, R.I. Nameless: When it comes to tobacco, drugs or premarital sex, being left out shows intelligence, integrity and, above all, morality. The weak succumb, the strong overcome. Readers: A 19-year-old wife wrote saying that she was pregnant, and the baby’s father might not be her husband. She had sex once with
her husband’s best friend. A girlfriend advised her to tell her husband. She asked me what she should do. I told her not to tell her husband. My answer caused many, many readers to respond. Before responding to the mother-to-be, I gave the question much thought. Finally, I decided that telling her husband might cause the marriage to unravel immediately. I felt it wasn’t worth the risk. One reader suggested that after the baby was born, it should be tested to see if the husband is the father and to keep silent if he is. If not, confess. If asked again, I probably would give the same answer,
but in greater depth. I guess it comes to this: Is it better for a couple to stay together and function as a family when one of the parents is hiding a secret, or to have the truth told with the possibility it will tear the family apart? It’s a very difficult decision. I had to give the lady in question what I thought was the right answer at the time. But now, I’m not 100 percent sure “keep the secret” is the right answer, so I would like to hear what our readers think. Contact me, and I’ll compile the data for a future column. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@ Copley News Service.
BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Cancer (June 21-July 22) — It might take far greater discipline than usual to finish what you start today. If you don’t want to leave a mess in your wake, you had better stay on top of whatever you take on. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Generally, you’re pretty careful about what you say about others, but today some flippant negative comments could be taken more seriously than usual. Mean what you say and say only what you mean. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Although there are plenty of substantial material opportunities hovering about you today, you will need a sharp eye to detect them. Unless you are seriously looking for them, you could easily miss them. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Those in your charge will easily be able to discern whether you are being tough or just pretending when you give them orders today. You’ll have to really mean it for your dic-
tates are to be followed. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Overhearing a disclosure that is meant to be confidential could put you on track to something quite beneficial if you are sharp enough to pick up on it and know how to constructively use it. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Prompting from an acquaintance could cause you to behave in an abrasive manner to someone who doesn’t really deserve it. Don’t be hoodwinked into believing what isn’t true. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If an ambitious plan you’ve been contemplating is prematurely exposed today, it could easily weaken your position. Guard your important intentions more carefully. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Be careful not to allow someone who is famous for making waves draw you into one of his/her intrigues today. If you participate, you will be the one who ends up looking
like the perpetrator. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Success in a collective situation will not be enhanced by a large number of participants today. Only people with talent and know-how will be able to pull off what everybody is hoping. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Generally you are one who nearly always thinks for yourself, but today this splendid quality won’t be visible. Although you rarely do so, you will let bias influence your opinions at this time. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Check to see if it is a selfish reason that is causing you to step out of character. Don’t make one set of rules for yourself, while making an entirely different set for everybody else. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Generally speaking you are noticed wherever you go, regardless of what you are doing or whom you are with, so make sure the impression you make today isn’t a negative one.

Herbal remedies appropriate for constipation Dear Dr. Gott: Is it safe to use cascara sagrada as a laxative? I’ve tried everything else, such as heaping tablespoons of Metamucil and using two stool softeners twice each day. Dear Reader: Cascara sagrada is a shrub from the western coast of North America. Its dried bark was used by Native Americans for years, but was not widely adopted until the 19th century as a stimulant laxative. The product is available in capsule form, liquid extract and as a dried bark that can be made into a bitter tea. Fresh bark should not be used because it can cause diarrhea and vomiting. Traditionally, the bark is either dried for at least one year or put through a special heat treatment. A common dose is from 20 to 70 milligrams daily. It should not
diet to include between 20 and 35 grams of fiber daily. Fiber can be found in wholegrain breads, fortified cereals, fresh fruits and vegetables. Limit your consumption of processed foods, meats and cheeses. Increase your fluid intake, and coordinate a regimen of regular exercise. Laxatives should be avoided if at all possible because they tend to be habit forming. Try a stool softener, saline laxative or a fiber supplement such as the Metamucil you are on. If this fails to work, acupuncture or massage to the abdominal area might be helpful. If all these suggestions fail, ask your physician for a referral to a gastroenterologist.
