Four days after leaving an acute care hospital to continue recovering from a June 24 wreck while on duty, Warren County Deputy Sheriff David Lambert died Tuesday, July 20, 2010. He was 38. Lambert was pronounced dead at 4:05 p.m. at Promise Specialty Hospital, said

“He loved God, he loved his family and he was wholly dedicated to law enforcement,” said Annette Lambert, the deputy’s wife of 18 years. “He would pray before he went off in his patrol car every day and ask God to help him be the kind of police officer that would please him.” “The Warren County Sheriff’s Department family is

The mission continues to take donations through its back door.

Vicksburg’s largest bar and entertainment complex on Washington Street, vacant since November, might soon have a new purchaser and occupant, Vicksburg Main Street Program Chairman Harry Sharp said at a meeting Tuesday morning. “There is serious interest by a potential buyer in all of those properties,” said Sharp of the complex in the 1400 block that formerly operated as The Ware House. Neither Sharp nor main street program director Kim

Hopkins wanted to discuss specifics of the potential sale in the open meeting due to ongoing negotiations. Both said a new occupant would breathe new life into an area of downtown that was virtually shuttered after The Ware House closed. “It would definitely be a boost to downtown and that block if they bought it,” said Hopkins. “It would help everybody downtown.” Meanwhile, a new bar and a church have sprung up in recent weeks near the complex.

JACKSON — Joseph Daniel Burns waited out his appeals today in a holding cell near the execution chamber at the state penitentiary at Parchman. Attorneys with the Office of Capital Post-Conviction Counsel asked the Mississippi Supreme Court on Monday to let them pursue another avenue of appeals through the trial court in Lee County. The attorney general’s office filed a brief Tuesday opposing Burns’ post-conviction petition, while the

SOUNDSCAPES

A monthlong noise study will begin next week at the Vicksburg National Military Park. “We’re very interested in seeing what type of effect the various noises inside and outside the park have on our visitors when they’re listening to programs or just touring through the park,” said Virginia DuBowy, natural resources program manager for the federal preserve. Noise monitors outfitted with microphones to gauge decibel levels will be placed

in four areas of the park on Monday by National Park Service personnel from the Natural Sounds Program of Fort Collins, Colo. The monitors will capture sound levels for a month, after which Natural Sounds Program will analyze the findings and present park officials with a report. The monitors will be placed deep inside the park’s northernmost wooded area, as well as at the visitor center off Clay Street, the Cairo Museum and South Loop inside the 1,800-acre park.

Arts Commission grants headed to west central Mississippi By Manivanh Chanprasith mchan@vicksburgpost.com Amounts are relatively small, but area art and cultural organizations plan to translate state Mississippi Arts Commission grants into beneficial public programs. Vicksburg’s Southern Cultural Heritage Center and Port Gibson’s Mississippi Cultural Crossroads, both nonprofit organizations, were each awarded a $21,750 grant, the second installments of twoyear operating grants. The amounts were determined by progress reports submitted by each organization, SCHF Executive Director Annette Kirklin said. Kirklin said SCHF will use their funds for daily operations and for the more than 75 cultural and artistic pro-

grams and activities offered annually. “I don’t know what we would do without MAC,” she said. “We do a lot here. We have a wide range of programs that is growing as people’s interests are growing.” A large portion of the grant will be used to sponsor the River Kids free after-school art program, as well as certain fee-based concerts, workshops, lectures and exhibits, Kirklin said. SCHF’s operating budget is around $200,000 and revenues exceed that by a “little bit more.” “We pretty much break even,” Kirklin said. In addition to grants, revenues are collected from space rental fees, which brought in $55,000 in the last fiscal year, membership fees from over 600 members

and fees for certain activities. MCC will use the grant similarly, MCC Executive Director Tara Wren said. “It’s an operational grant we’ll use to pay salaries, building maintenance or whatever we need to do to keep the doors open,” she said. MCC provides myriad programs for the young and old. “We have a day care art class, after-school art classes, quilting classes, environment reading and summer arts classes,” Wren said, in addition to a performing arts center and a family resource center. Located in downtown Port Gibson, which has a population of about 12,000 people, MCC serves over 4,100 people annually. MAC, established in 1968, is a state agency that serves the arts by offering financial

Vicksburg woman jailed in arson that displaced families A Vicksburg woman was arrested at her home Tuesday and charged with arson in a fire that left three Grove Street families without homes. Zenobia Smith, 30, 1415 High St., is accused of setting fire to Apartment B at 2232 Grove St. on July 1, Vicksburg police Sgt. Sandra Williams said. Smith, who once lived at the address, had moved out of the home some time before the fire, Williams said. Residents of the four-unit building owned by Roy Miller of Springfield, Mo., had escaped from their homes before firefighters and police arrived, Williams said. No injuries were reported. Vicksburg Fire Inspector Leslie Decareaux said three families were displaced from the fire that left all four apartments uninhabitable, two heavily damaged and two with smoke damage. “Nighttime is the worst time to have a fire because everyone is asleep,” said Decareaux. Smith was released from the Warren County Jail on a $10,000 bond. The arson arrest was the second local one in two days. Johnny Ray Galey, 54, was charged Monday in the Saturday morning arson at his home at 9960 U.S. 61 South. Arrested by Warren County deputies, Galey remained in the Warren County Jail this morning on a $50,000 bond.

Third drug suspect arrested, released A Vicksburg man was released from the Warren County Jail on a $15,000 bond Tuesday, hours after being charged with possession of cocaine and possession of marijuana, records show. Vicksburg police Sgt. Sandra Williams said Joseph Williams, 26, 1325 Jackson St., jumped from a vehicle in the 1900 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard on Saturday night during a traffic stop in which two other men were arrested. Darrayle Allen, 17, 5708 Gibson Road, and Justin Williams, 25, also were charged with possession of cocaine and possession of marijuana. Allen and Justin Williams had already been released from the Warren County Jail on a $2,500 bond each. Justin Williams and Joseph Williams are brothers, police said.

2nd woman nabbed in Lakeside theft A second Vicksburg woman has been arrested in a June theft from a home in the 1600 block of Lakeside Drive. Katina Lynn Baldridge, 32, 2604 Yerger St., was arrested at a motel on North Front-

from staff reports age Road on Friday and charged with entering the home and taking a wedding band, Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said. Barbara Muirhead, 34, 160 Ironwood Drive, who had been hired for yard work at the house, was arrested a week ago in the same theft. Muirhead was arrested at her home after being accused of pawning a ring reported stolen from the Lakeside home. The theft was reported June 17. Muirhead remained in the Warren County Jail on a $2,500 bond this morning, and Baldridge was released Tuesday on a $5,000 bond, Pace said.

Magee man jailed in November theft A Magee man was in the Warren County Jail today charged with a grand larceny that occurred eight months ago. Carl J. Britt, 35, 616 Seventh St., is accused of taking DVDs, an Xbox game console, an electric heater, $80, two purses, two comforters and two rifles from a home in the 100 block of Falk Steel Road on Nov. 14, Vicksburg police Sgt. Sandra Williams said. At about 9 a.m. Tuesday, Britt was arrested at the Hinds County Jail, where he had been held on unrelated charges, and brought to Vicksburg police headquarters, Williams said. He was being held without bond pending an initial appearance in court.

City thefts reported on Redbone, National A computer and a weapon were missing in two burglaries reported in Vicksburg, police Sgt. Sandra Williams said. A Hewlett-Packard laptop computer valued at $1,000 and DSL modem were reported stolen from a home in the 500 block of Redbone Road at 6:42 p.m. A 9mm Beretta handgun was reported stolen from a 2005 Chevrolet CTA in the 900 block of National Street at 2:41 p.m.

Relief tunnel set to reach well in days Spill could be stopped for good in two weeks

Anti-BP signs are posted on a roadside in Grand Isle, La.

On B6 U.S. should nationalize oil, filmmaker says to go by early September. But BP spokeswoman Sheila Williams said, “Tony is leading the company in a strong and robust way and has the support of the board.” Shares of British-based BP PLC, which have lost about 40 percent since the disaster began in April, were up more than 3 percent Wednesday on the London Stock Exchange after the company announced a $7 billion asset sale to Houston-based Apache Corp. to help pay for the catastrophe. Just weeks after promising

Cleanup crew largest fleet since Normandy invasion FOURCHON BEACH, La. — The 5,600 vessels taking part in the oil spill operation on the Gulf of Mexico make up the largest fleet assembled since the Allied invasion of Normandy, according to the Coast Guard. Hordes of helicopters, bulldozers, Army trucks, ATVs, barges, dredges, airboats, workboats, cleanup crews, media, scientists and volunteers have descended on the beaches, blue waters and golden marshes of the Gulf Coast. That’s a lot of propellers, anchors, tires and feet for a fragile ecosystem to take, and a tough truth is emerging: In many places, the oil cleanup itself is causing environmental damage. Part of that is inevitable — the oil has to get cleaned up somehow, and BP and the government will be subject to second-guessing no matter what. “Absolutely nothing you do to respond to an oil spill is without impacts of its own,” said Lisa Jackson, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded April 20, killing 11, and oil began gushing

into the Gulf, federal, state and BP officials say they have been picking the less damaging method. Still, environmentalists and veterans of other spills say the torrent of untested cleanup methods rushed into practice by panicked officials and unqualified experts is wreaking havoc and, at least in spots, may be unnecessary. “The more you disperse (with chemicals), the more you bring in these big machines, the more you bring in inexperienced people and the more sand berms you build, the less chance you have of letting Mother Nature and skimmers and booms do the job,” said Mike Brewer of Buras, La., who ran an oil spill response company and is working on the BP cleanup. For starters, the EPA allowed BP PLC to spray a chemical dispersant, a product called Corexit, to break up oil right as it came out of BP’s broken well nearly a mile below the surface. The idea is to save shorelines from being clobbered with vast waves of crude. In practice, the use of dispersants that had never been tested that far beneath the surface has made the oil much more difficult to track than it would have been in a single, massive slick.

to raise $10 billion by selling pieces of its business, BP said Tuesday that Apache will buy properties in the U.S., Canada and Egypt. BP says it has spent nearly $4 billion on the spill so far and is on the hook for a $20 billion fund for damaged Gulf residents and businesses. On the Gulf, BP vice president Kent Wells said crews hope to drill sideways into the blown-out well and intercept it at the end of July. The relief well is necessary to plug the well permanently. After it’s done, crews will begin the kill procedure, pumping mud and cement into the hole a mile underwater to seal it, which BP said could take anywhere from five days to a couple of weeks. “Everything’s looking good,”

Chinese/Sushi Bar

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Three months into the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, the federal government’s spill chief says a relief tunnel should finally reach BP’s broken well by the weekend, meaning the gusher could be snuffed for good within two weeks. After several days of concern about the well’s stability and the leaky cap keeping the oil mostly bottled up, retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen said Tuesday that engineers concluded the risk of a bigger blowout was minimal and were getting closer to pumping mud into the column to permanently seal it. “We continue to be pleased with the progress,” Allen said in Washington, giving the goahead to keep the well cap shut for at least 24 more hours and possibly longer. Meanwhile, a published report said BP’s beleaguered CEO, Tony Hayward, planned to step down after a series of PR blunders, including yacht racing during the spill and saying he wanted his life back. The Times newspaper in London, quoting company sources it did not identify, said today that Hayward was likely

Well said. “The relief well is exactly where we want it. It’s pointed in the right direction, and so we’re feeling good about that.” Engineers are also considering shooting drilling mud down through the cap to increase the chances that the attempt to kill the well succeeds. News that a solution is near cheered Jeff Hunt who scans the waves daily for telltale tar balls in Pensacola Beach, Fla. “It makes me very happy, after nearly three months, that they finally have gotten to a pinnacle point of closing it,” said the co-owner of a hair salon. “We need to plug the thing.” BP wants to leave the cap on in the meantime. At one point, Allen wanted instead to relieve the pressure by opening up the cap and siphoning oil up to ships on the surface, but he has relented in the past few days. Opening the cap would have required allowing millions of gallons oil to gush into the sea again for a few days while the plumbing was hooked up. Seepage detected from the seafloor briefly raised fears that the well was in danger, but Allen said that another well is to blame.

OLD POST FILES 120 YEARS AGO: 1890 The residence of Mrs. H.F. Cook is the scene of a delightful family reunion of Mrs. Gibbs and Mrs. Flowers.

110 YEARS AGO: 1900 The body of young Arthur Banks, who drowned at the lower landing, is recovered.

100 YEARS AGO: 1910 The big sea-going tug “Morganza” runs down the little ferry “DeSoto,” which sinks.

90 YEARS AGO: 1920 Mrs. E.A. Fitzgerald and children are spending the week at Cooper’s Well.

OUR OPINION

Mr. and Mrs. L.N. Barfield celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. • Wade C. Powell dies. • Robert Culp stars in “Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice” at Showtown USA.

Safety?

30 YEARS AGO: 1980 Funeral services are held for C.L. Feibelman. • Vicksburg musicians Robert Garner and Karen Preston join to form a folk duo, “Reunion,” and will perform at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Ark. • Sister Mary E. Loyacono, RSM, president of Mercy Regional Medical Center, attends the convention of the American Hospital Association in Montreal, Canada.

Moratorium gives appearance of response With a cap in place and holding, tentatively, as the sea “digests” a gusher of crude, we have this request: Please, Mr. President, don’t take drastic measures to save us from oil wells. Valuable human endeavors usually pose a slight risk of substantial harm. If absolute safety is the noblest cause, humans should close themselves in padded rooms and breathe filtered air. Examples of worthwhile endeavors that pose slight risks of harm abound: A bus full of California high school students plunged off a cliff in 1976, killing 28. A bus poses the slight risk of substantial harm. We have never endured a presidential bus ban. A psychotic shot 32 students at Virginia Tech in 2007. Attending college poses a slight risk of substantial harm. We have never endured a presidential ban on going to college. About 41,000 are killed each

year in the United States in car crashes. A person in a car is only 0.004 percent safer than someone in a coal mine, based on federal mortality data. Driving poses a relatively high risk of substantial harm and exacts an environmental toll that dwarfs the world’s worst human-caused environmental disasters. We have never endured a presidential moratorium on driving. Yet we will endure a presidential moratorium on deep-water drilling come hell or high water, thanks in part to the desire to appear to be doing something by a political president and Ken Salazar, his political secretary of the Interior. President Barack Obama wants a ban through November because deep-water drilling poses a slight risk of harm. Two federal judges have said no, but Obama won’t back off. The White House intends to end-run the courts. If the White House is success-

ful, we’ll enjoy some protection from the infinitesimal probability of another oil disaster this year. The loophole will absolutely, beyond question exact hardship on Americans. It may cause fuel prices to reach unprecedented levels, inflating the costs of goods. The Houston Chronicle estimates the ban will cost tens of thousands of jobs in the Gulf Coast region alone. That would ripple through a national economy that’s flirting with a second big-dip recession and burdened by an ominous national debt. This “just keep us safe” mentality partly explains why we remain dependent on oil. As France turned to nuclear reactors to get free from big oil, we avoided the slight risk of harm posed by reactors. There is no shame, only honor, in rethinking an idea. Let’s avoid a moratorium that turns a slight risk of harm into a certainty of harm.

20 YEARS AGO: 1990 Cy’s Grocery & Variety Store closes after 33 years in business. • Mary Ann Stokes shows off a 17.22 pound cantaloupe that she grew in her garden. • Mr. and Mrs. Randy Lee Lewis announce the birth of a daughter, Whitney Michelle.

10 YEARS AGO: 2000 A sport safety training course is offered by the Vicksburg Red Cross. • A poem by William Patrick Bender II of Vicksburg is certified as a semifinalist in the North American Open Poetry Contest. • Leo Koestler III develops and markets a laser pendulum bow sight.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler

Perhaps the more accurate word is ‘prejudiced’ WASHINGTON — Can we talk? About race? Your blood pressure is already rising? It need not. This isn’t a rambling diatribe or a harsh polemic filled with invective about tea partiers, Jim Crow and reparations. Instead, it’s a plea for honest and thoughtful conversation about the ways in which long-held beliefs and biases, prejudices and predispositions pool in the back of our brains to form a feedback loop, a quick and unconscious Google that spits out judgments about people like us, different from us, unfamiliar to us. Barack Obama’s ascension to the Oval Office proves that we’re a nation increasingly comfortable with our diversity. But even as we assimilate newcomers, we struggle with old habits of mind, harmful stereotypes and moldy misconceptions. This column won’t address the remnants of malevolent racism that linger at the margins of American society — whether expressed by a tea partier carrying a Photoshopped sign of President Obama as a witch doctor or a New Black Panther yelling about killing white people. Those remnants are too few and too feeble

What else but implicit biases would explain the lingering employment gap between college-educated blacks and whites?

to merit serious attention. The more challenging problem for a diverse society is harder to see, to pinpoint, to quantify, to tease out — the problem of perceptions around race, deeply held notions that still tend to hamper people of color. “Racism” is, I think, too harsh a descriptive for those judgments that linger in our lizard brains. The proper word is “prejudice” because of its precise denotation — to prejudge. President Obama was describing prejudices when he spoke of his grandmother in a brilliant speech about race in March 2008. Though she loved him dearly, she still harbored unflattering stereotypes about other young black men.

Obama described her as “a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.” Those who later declared that Obama had described his grandmother as a “racist” were wholly and completely wrong. He described the late Madelyn Dunham as fully human, a case study in the warped and woeful complexities surrounding race, color and caste in America. She could love her biracial grandson fully and completely, while still keeping

“implicit biases,” as researchers call them, lodged in her subconscious. Dunham was hardly unusual in that. Schoolteachers, doctors and bankers, among others, also have hidden biases — which helps explain why children of color end up in detention more often, why black men get less attention at the doctor’s office, and why black and Latino homebuyers often ended up with subprime mortgages even when they had good credit ratings. What else but implicit biases would explain the lingering employment gap between college-educated blacks and whites? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, black men with college degrees had an unemployment rate nearly twice as high as white men with college degrees in 2009. A study published a few years ago — “Are Emily and Greg More Employable than Lakisha and Jamal?” — showed that black job candidates were more likely to be rejected even if they had resumes identical to white candidates. Given the paucity of black managers in positions of authority, black job applicants are left to appeal to white managers who probably believe they see only skills, not skin. Are those

white managers bigots? I don’t think so. But they are allowing stereotypes to seep into their considerations. As a Southerner who grew up in an era when black adults were not given the courtesy of titles and black children were bused past white schools, I learned to distinguish between wellmeaning whites who don’t know their own biases and malevolent whites who are proud of their bigotry. I’ve had white hometown acquaintances who’d be pleased to have me as a dinner guest but who’d be far less pleased if the new president hired at the local community college were black. Are they racists? I certainly don’t think so. But I do think they’re unaccustomed to seeing black men and women in such positions of authority, and a changing America makes them uncomfortable. Can we talk about this honestly? No diatribes or denunciations, please. Just thoughtful and candid discussion. •

Incumbent Miss. congressmen lead challengers in cash race By Emily Wagster-Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — Mississippi’s congressional incumbents have far more money than their challengers to spend on campaigns as candidates head into the final months before the Nov. 2 election. The latest finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission show that in the state’s most competitive race in the northern 1st District, Democratic Rep. Travis Childers had $903,469 cash on hand and $100,000 of debt through June 30. Repub-

Travis Childers

Gregg Harper

lican Alan Nunnelee reported $233,205 cash and no debt. Nunnelee won a three-person Republican primary in June. Childers didn’t have a primary challenger. Finance reports on the Federal Election Commission

Bennie Thompson

website show that in the 4th District in south Mississippi, Democratic Rep. Gene Taylor reported $351,022 cash and no debt. Republican Steven Palazzo reported $26,131 in cash and $32,000 in debt. In the Delta’s 2nd District,

Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson reported $2.1 million cash and no debt. No report was available for Republican Bill Marcy. In the central 3rd District, Republican Rep. Gregg Harper reported $181,494 cash and no debt. The latest report listed for Democrat Joel Gill was in November, when he had $71 in cash and $4,000 in debt. Childers was first elected in 2008, and the National Republican Congressional Committee has targeted him as a potentially vulnerable Democrat this year. He held a teleconference town hall meeting

Monday night to take questions from constituents. Organizers said more than 20,000 people listened. Childers said he voted against a massive health care overhaul bill because he thought it was too expensive. He said he voted against a “cap and trade” bill that would cap greenhouse gases and allow industries to buy emissions allowances because he worried it would hurt farmers. He said he voted for an extension of unemployment payments because he believes people are struggling in the weak economy.

Nunnelee said Childers was wrong to wait until a few days before the health overhaul vote to announce opposition to the bill, which President Barack Obama signed into law. Nunnelee also said Childers should work to repeal the law. Nunnelee said he opposes cap-and-trade and Childers should’ve done more to try to block it. Nunnelee said he doesn’t know enough about the details of the unemployment benefits extension to say whether he supports or opposes it.

MSU begins demolition of former dorm AG: No basis to halt Choctaw casino STARKVILLE, Miss. — A wrecking crew on Wednesday will start demolishing a former dormitory at Mississippi State University. Suttle Hall was built in 1967 and closed after the 2006-2007 school year. The nine-story building at one time housed 599 students a year on the Starkville campus. It was named for N.D. Suttle, former professor of agronomy and head of the State Seed Testing Laboratory.

Natchez takes out loan to balance budget

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NATCHEZ, Miss. — The Natchez Board of Aldermen has voted unanimously to take out a $650,000 tax anticipation loan to balance the city’s 2009-2010 fiscal year budget. City Clerk Donnie Holloway tsaid the loan is needed to cover payroll and insurance expenses through December. Holloway said the city took out a $1.3 million tax anticipation loan to balance the 2007-2008 fiscal year budget.

Supervisor Peggy Hobson Calhoun would not say why Strong resigned but said she knows it does not have anything to do with breaking the law.

Youth center director quits after one month

Report: Warm climate could parch counties

JACKSON, Miss. — The director of the Hinds County Henley-Young Juvenile Detention Center has resigned one month after being hired.

BILLINGS, Mont. — A new report says more than 1,000 counties across the United States, including some in Mississippi, are at risk for potential water shortages by

the south

midcentury as warmer temperatures deplete supplies and demand for water rises. The report, released Tuesday by the Natural Resources Defense Council, says some regions including the Northeast could see a boost to water supplies. But for much of the rest of the country, the group paints a sobering picture of warm temperatures further taxing aquifers already stressed by heavy agricultural and consumer use. The report did not factor in future improvements to water supply systems. In addition to Mississippi, the states that were most at risk were: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.

Barbour spokesman Dan Turner said the governor had no comment on Hood’s decision. The Choctaws’ miko, or chief, Beasley Denson, praised Hood’s research. “Gov.

impacts that gaming provides to the tribal government, as well as the positive economic impact it has beyond the tribe’s borders,” Denson said in a news release Tuesday. “And although there is some disagreement among state leaders with our decision, we will continue to work with our allies at the federal, state and local level to make this project a win-win.” The proposed 27,000-squarefoot casino would be in Sandersville, northeast of Laurel. It would be a $17 million investment, employing about 250 people. Barbour and the six other current Republican statewide elected officials have said they’re against a casino in Jones County, and they’ve publicly asked the Choctaws to withdraw their plans. Hood, a Democrat, said it’s unfortunate that the compact Fordice signed did not restrict Choctaw casinos to Neshoba County. Mississippi has 30 state-regulated casinos along the Gulf Coast and the Mississippi River.

JACKSON — Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood said Tuesday there is no legal basis for the state to try to block a casino proposed on Choctaw tribal land in Jones County. Gov. Haley Barbour opposes the casino and asked Hood last month to research state law to find a way to stop the development, which would have 500 to 700 slot machines. Hood said Tuesday that attorneys in his office examined the gaming compact that then-Gov. Kirk Fordice signed with the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians in 1992, and the compact refers to tribal lands — plural. Hood said that means the Choctaws are not restricted to having only their two existing casinos in Neshoba County. Hood said the U.S. Interior Department certified the tribal lands in Jones County during the 1940s. He said the state’s tribal gaming compact has been upheld by state and

smart money Q: My mother is 80 years old and is about to inherit $400,000 from her sister’s estate. She doesn’t want or need the money. She would like to split it between my bruce brother and me. I am concerned because of the gift limit, although I read in your column something about an exclusion she can use. What paperwork would she need to file? Is there any way we can do this without problems? All of the paperwork and taxes have been paid and filed by her sister’s estate. Could my mother open a joint account and have my brother and me as the primary owner and put half of the money in each? Or can she just give us the money? My brother and I are willing to pay the taxes on the interest and dividends. If we can’t transfer the money, we will have to pay taxes again

when our mother dies. The three of us think this is stupid because we will be paying taxes on the same money twice. — Don, via e-mail A: You can do a number of things to reduce or eliminate any taxes involved, depending upon your mother’s worth (aside from the $400,000 you mentioned). The most she can give you without any tax impact at this time would be $11,000. You mentioned the taxes have already been paid. That would depend on some measure on the size of the estate. If the $400,000 is all of the sister’s estate, there will be no federal income tax at this time. Inheritance taxes are very unclear. Congress is expected to do something about this type of tax, but it may also end up doing nothing. Your best bet is to sit down with a knowledgeable estate planner and ask for his or her best assessment, given the uncertainty of the inheritance tax, in how to protect everyone’s interest involved. •

WASHINGTON (AP) — With a GOP filibuster safely broken, the Senate is poised to pass legislation restoring jobless benefits for millions of people unable to find work in the frail economic recovery. Today’s vote is a formality after the Democratic-controlled Senate voted 60-40 Tuesday to move ahead on the bill. The measure would then go to the House for one final vote and on to President Barack Obama this week. At issue are payments averaging $309 a week for almost 5 million people whose 26 weeks of state benefits have run out. Those people are enrolled in a federally financed program providing up to 73 additional weeks of unemployment benefits. About half of those currently eligible have seen their benefits cut off since funding expired June 2. The jobless benefits are a lifeline to millions of people struggling to find work in what has so far been a largely jobless recovery. “I can’t tell you how relieved we will be when Congress passes this. We have in Penn-

President poised to sign financial overhaul WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama aimed to usher in a new era of consumer protections and banking restrictions today, checking off another legislative victory just before election-year politics overtakes the rest of his major agenda. The president was expected to sign a sweeping overhaul of financial regulations, a signature achievement that comes nearly two years after Wall Street’s failures knocked the economy into the worst recession since the Great Depression. The White House was planning a major signing ceremony featuring a long list of supporters of the legislation, including former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker and Robert Diamond,

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS said today its second-quarter earnings rose 10 percent on higher-than-expected sales and production. Copper prices fell sharply, but not as bad as many had expected, causing another strong quarter. Shares jumped more than 5 percent before the market opened. And the company said its results demonstrated a focus on cost management. The Phoenix mining company, one of the largest in the world, reported net income of $649 million, or $1.40 per share. That compares with $588 million, or $1.38 per share a year ago.

Palin still a star in small Alaska town JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Anyone who doubts Sarah Palin’s celebrity need only talk to Lyn Carden. As head of Wasilla, Alaska’s chamber of commerce, Carden tends to be the frontline for tourists wanting to see Palin, perhaps even grab a cup of coffee at her house. And she’s heard it all. When Palin makes news, or carries a snazzy purse women want to buy, Carden invariably gets a call, or flurry of calls. Some callers have left credit card information, hoping to get that purse. Others send fan mail, or money for Palin’s political action committee. There are those, too, that just stop in, off a train and hoping for directions to her house — which they do not get — or eager to learn as much as they can about Wasilla’s most famous resident. Many snap a photo of themselves with Palin’s cardboard cutout. “Of course, every single question is about her and where she is and where she gets her hair done and what she eats and what she’s doing,” Carden said. A year after Palin’s abrupt resignation as governor, interest in her and the small Alaska town she put on the map hasn’t gone away. While it’s not at the fever pitch it reached during Palin’s run for vice president, there remains a steady stream of pilgrims. At least one tour company builds old Palin haunts into a trip that includes a musk ox farm visit. Some in Wasilla don’t see what the big deal is. To them, Palin’s just a local-girl-madegood, a former mayor and current resident who hits her favorite running trails when she’s in town and runs her own errands, seen at the Fred

Oakland officials OK large pot farms SAN FRANCISCO — Oakland has moved closer to becoming the first city in the nation to authorize wholesale pot cultivation. The Oakland City Council voted 5-2 with one abstention late Tuesday in favor of a plan to license four production plants where marijuana would be grown, packaged and processed. The vote came after more than two hours of public comment, with speakers divided between those who opposed the measure — largely on the grounds that it would put small medical marijuana growers out of business — and those who said it would generate millions of dollars for Oakland.

Within “seconds,” he said, people started asking for photos, and seemingly out of nowhere, a crowd of almost 100 amassed outside. It took about 45 minutes to get through, he said, with Palin stopping for autographs and photos, never complaining or acting a diva. “It was like being with a Beatle,” said Coale, who set up Palin’s political action committee.

Autopsy scheduled on unidentified body MORENO VALLEY, Calif. —An autopsy was scheduled for later today on an unidentified body found several miles from where a 17-yearold Southern California girl disappeared on her way home last week.

Riverside County sheriff’s Deputy Melissa Nieburger said investigators were proceeding cautiously and wouldn’t be able to positively identify the remains for possibly several days. A resident reported finding human remains Tuesday near an empty stretch of road.

Group presents ideas to protect dolphins HONOLULU — Fishermen who use longlines to catch ahi, mahimahi and other fish off Hawaii should use a different kind of hook so they don’t accidentally severely injure or kill a rare dolphin species, a federal advisory group said. Longline fleet captains should undergo training on how to release any mistakenly caught false killer whales in a way that minimizes harm, the group said.

Lambert Continued from Page A1. aged by his improvement over the past few days,” said the sheriff, who had visited Lambert on Sunday and Monday. “We were all encouraged that he was well on his way to recovery.” Lambert was injured in the wreck on U.S. 61 North near Oak Ridge Road, which occurred around 3:45 a.m. Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol Staff Sgt. Dennis Weaver, who responded, said he believed Lambert was northbound responding to a call. His death follows by 14 months the on-duty death of another Warren County deputy, Tom Wilson, who was on his way to assist an ambulance call May 17, 2009, on U.S.61 South when his cruiser

hydroplaned and flipped. Wilson, 39, was pronounced dead at the scene. Pace said the losses have been hard on the department, which considers itself a family. “It’s like losing a second family member in a little over a year,” he said. Deputies placed mourning bands on their badges today. Lambert had been in law enforcement since 1995 and joined the sheriff’s department here in January. Annette Lambert said her husband loved working in Warren County. “He said it was the best opportunity the Lord had ever presented to him,” she said. “He was so proud and honored to work with all of them.” He had been an officer with the Ross Barnett Reservoir Patrol, a state law enforcement agency, from 2008 to December 2009. He was a security supervisor at River

Court

Park

scene showed that as Lambert passed the Oak Ridge Road intersection, he swerved to the left, hit the median and corrected before the cruiser, a Ford Crown Victoria, rolled and then came to rest on the east shoulder. Weaver said two sets of tire marks were found, indicating that another car might have been involved. “It looks like he was avoiding something coming from his right at the intersection,” Weaver said at the time. “Normally, you don’t see acceleration marks like that at an intersection. People don’t usually squeal their tires at a green light.” No further information has been released about the wreck, and a spokesman with MHSP was not available today. Wrecks at the T-intersection are not uncommon.

A student, Savanah Mignon Belgard, 19, of Florence, was killed there on May 31, 2006. The portion of Oak Ridge that joins the highway was formerly known as Bowie Road. Lambert and his wife were natives of Opelika, Ala. Along with his wife, he leaves three stepchildren, Susanne Coleman and Cynthia Nichols of Opelika, and Michael Farmer of Brandon; his parents, Roger and Delaine Easterling of Opelika; three brothers, Michael Lambert and Roger Easterling Jr. of Opelika and Ronnie Lambert of Nashville; and seven step-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his sister, Rhonda Coleman. Funeral arrangements were incomplete but expected to be handled by Jackson’s Wright and Ferguson Funeral Home.

Oaks Medical Center in Brandon from 2006 to 2008, and was an officer with University Medical Center police from 1995 to 2006, Pace said. Annette Lambert is a nurse in the Intensive Care Unit at River Region Medical Center after having previously worked at University Medical Center in Jackson. They moved to Vicksburg in August, she said. Lambert was initially listed in critical condition and was treated in the Intensive Care Unit at UMC after being airlifted there from RRMC shortly after the wreck. Saturday, he was transferred to the Vicksburg facility, which specializes in longer-term care. Lambert had sustained head injuries, a broken shoulder, pelvic bone and ribs and crushed hip.

Maybe our policies will change as far as what you have to do in the parking lot,” she said. “But I really don’t know at this point. We’ll have to see what the report finds.” DuBowy said park officials requested the study from

NPS last year. It will also include analysis of sounds created by cannon and arms firings as part of park interpretive programs, construction in the park, nearby train whistles, Yazoo Diversion Canal traffic and Interstate 20 traffic. “Also, we’re looking at any effects a possible expansion of I-20 would have,” said DuBowy. The sounds created inside

and outside the park are not suspected to have any effect on the integrity of the nearly 1,400 tablets, markets and monuments placed throughout the park and city, DuBowy said. The VNMP is the city’s No. 1 visitor attraction, drawing in about 700,000 tourists from around the world in recent years. Its tour roads track Union and Confederate siege lines from 1863.

June. Minister Ahmetahee Ben Israel said renovation of the property is ongoing, but weekly worship services, Bible studies and sabbath school sessions are in full swing. Israel said he would not object to a bar reopening nearby in the former Ware House complex. “If one opened right next door, that wouldn’t bother me so long as they did not disrupt what I was doing,” he said. Israel lives in Braxton, where the House of Israel Culture Center is headquartered, and travels to Vicksburg for services and meetings. The Ware House complex represented one of the most

significant private investments downtown in the past decade. Owner Robert Ware sank millions of dollars into renovating the complex, which included a 13-room luxury hotel, sports bar, pool hall and lounge. A piano and wine bar was in the works at the time of the closure. Ware had the four properties in the complex listed for sale for as much as $5 million, but had reduced the asking price to $3.5 million when the doors finally closed. Ware, an Alabama native and California resident before coming to Vicksburg in 2005, left town shortly after the closure — apparently with some mementos of his stay.

“Robert removed carpeting, sinks, some toilets, and just out of meanness, random numbers off some of the rooms,” Sharp said. “All of that was supposed to stay.” The properties are listed collectively by Varner Real Estate for $1.25 million, said owner and Realtor Jim Hobson, who confirmed a potential purchaser. “It’s a great opportunity for someone down there, and I think it would be a real boon to the downtown area,” Hobson said. Deeds to The Ware House properties and three nearby commercial locations Ware also formerly owned in downtown Vicksburg were purchased for $1 million by

Britton & Koontz Bank in a foreclosure sale in January. Not far from downtown in Marcus Bottom, another fullservice restaurant serving beer also recently opened near the intersection of Halls Ferry Road and Bowmar Avenue, just around the corner from where Bowmar Bar and Grill opened in January. While the city has routinely denied nightclub applications since tougher restrictions were put into place in 2007, full-service restaurants are allowed to have beer or light wine sales that are “incidental” to food sales. The floor space of the businesses must be split so that 60 percent is for food service.

Burns Continued from Page A1. two years earlier. The execution would be the third this year in Mississippi. Burns’ attorneys also planned to file a clemency request with the governor’s office, seeking a delay so Burns can get a mental evaluation. The Mississippi Supreme Court denied the

request last week. Assistant Attorney General Pat McNamara filed a response with the Supreme Court on Tuesday that said Burns had already failed in one attempted post-conviction petition and one is all he should get. In 2004, the Supreme Court

dismissed Burns’ request for a new trial on grounds that his attorney should have done a better job. Glenn S. Swartzfager, with the Office of Capital PostConviction Counsel, contends Burns did not make a “knowing and intelligent waiver” of his constitutional

right to present mitigating evidence at sentencing. That’s the argument Swartzfager said they want to make in a post-conviction relief petition in the trial court. Defendants offer mitigating evidence in hopes of convincing a jury to impose a sen-

NATO: Insurgents behead 6 Afghan police China flooding death toll, Explosion also kills serviceman KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Insurgents beheaded six policemen after attacking their checkpoint in northern Afghanistan, NATO said today. The military coalition said the militants attacked a number of government buildings Tuesday in Baghlan province’s Dahanah-ye Ghori district. The attackers overran the checkpoint and decapitated the six policemen, NATO said. Also today, a NATO service member was killed by an explosion in the south, according to NATO. The nationality of the victim was not released. The death brought the number of NATO service members killed this month to 65. Violence and casualties have surged in recent months in Afghanistan. June was the deadliest month for U.S. and international forces with the deaths of 103 service members, including 60 Americans. Elsewhere, the Australian defense ministry said the main NATO base outside the southern city of Kandahar came under Taliban rocket fire late Monday, causing minor damage to an Australian facility but no Australian casualties. No further details were released. The NATO base at the Kandahar Air Field comes under rocket and mortar fire from time to time, usually without major damage.

2 U.S. civilians killed on base

A U.S. Army soldier from the 1-320th Alpha Battery, 2nd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division, searches an Afghan villager during a foot patrol in the volatile Arghandab Valley of Kandahar Tuesday.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — An Afghan soldier opened fire on U.S. civilian trainers at an army base in northern Afghanistan, killing two Americans before being shot dead, the Defense Ministry said today. An argument started during a weapons-training exercise and the Afghan soldier turned his gun on the Americans on Tuesday, the ministry said in a statement. Another Afghan soldier was killed in the resulting crossfire, and the shooter was later gunned down. NATO previously said two Americans and two Afghan soldiers were killed by gunfire at a firing range outside Mazar-e-Sharif, but it did not provide details on how the incident occurred. The shooter was a “group leader” — an Afghan soldier selected to train other soldiers on the base, Defense Ministry spokesman Gen. Mohammad Zahir Azimi said. Intentional shootings by Afghans against coalition partners have occurred previously. Earlier this month, an Afghan soldier killed three British service members with gunfire and a rocket-propelled grenade in the dead of night. The soldier fled after that attack, leaving his motive unclear. But the Taliban claimed he was a militant sympathizer taken in by insurgents after the assault.

1,000-plus, worst in years BEIJING — More than 1,000 people have died or disappeared in severe flooding in China so far this year, and the heaviest rains are still to come, a senior official warned today. This year’s floods, which have caused tens of billions of dollars in damage already, have exacted the highest death toll since 1998, when the highest water levels in five decades killed 4,150. With the typhoon season rolling in, Liu Ning, general secretary of the government’s flood prevention agency, said authorities must ramp up preparations.

Court orders retrial for ex-Kosovo leader THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Kosovo’s former prime minister must be retried on murder and torture charges related to the country’s 1998-99 war with Serbia, the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal ruled today, calling his acquittal two years ago “a miscarriage of justice.” The original trial for Ramush Haradinaj and two former Kosovo Liberation Army comrades was marred by intimidation that left two witnesses too scared to testify, tribunal President Patrick Robinson said. “The trial chamber failed to appreciate the gravity of the threat that witness intimidation posted,” Robinson said in ordering the first retrial in

U.S. announces new North Korea sanctions SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The Obama administration moved today to push new sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear weapons program, as Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Defense Secretary Robert Gates showed solidarity with South Korea during a visit to the area that separates it from the North. Clinton announced the new measures — targeting the sale or purchase of arms and related goods used to fund the communist regime’s nuclear activities, and the acquisition of luxury items to reward its elite — after she and Gates toured the heavily fortified border in a symbolic trip four months after the sinking of a South Korean warship blamed on the North. The penalties are intended to further isolate the already hermetic North and persuade its leaders to return to talks

The penalties are intended to further isolate the already hermetic North and persuade its leaders to return to talks aimed at getting it to abandon atomic weapons. aimed at getting it to abandon atomic weapons. The U.S. is also trying to forestall future provocative acts like the torpedoing of the Cheonan, which killed 46 South Korean sailors. With specifics of the sanctions still being worked out, the more striking demonstration of U.S. resolve came when Clinton and Gates — in a first for America’s top two cabinet members — together toured the demilitarized zone in the village of Panmunjom.

Under sporadic downpours and the watchful gaze of curious North Korean guards, they paid tribute to the U.S., South Korean and international forces that patrol the world’s last Cold War-era border. Sixty years after the fighting began, the peninsula remains divided in a state of war because the conflict ended in a truce, not a peace treaty. At one point, in the Military Armistice Commission building where officials from North Korea and the U.N. Command meet for talks, Clinton and Gates stood briefly on North Korean soil while a North Korean solider peered at them through a window. Gates said the visit was intended “to send a strong signal to the North, to the region and to the world that our commitment to South Korea’s security is steadfast. “In fact, our military alliance has never been stronger.”

Spain predicting thaw in U.S., Cuba relations MADRID — Cuba’s release of dozens of political prisoners will lead to a thaw in U.S. relations and the lifting of a decades-old embargo against the Communist-run island, Spain’s foreign minister predicted today. Speaking in Parliament, Miguel Angel Moratinos said the freeing of some 52 Cuban prisoners would also lead to an improvement in EU policy toward Cuba.

Pipeline blast causes worst China oil spill BEIJING — China’s largest reported oil spill had more than doubled by today, closing beaches on the Yellow Sea and prompting an environmental official to warn the sticky black crude posed a “severe threat” to sea life and water quality. Some workers trying to clean up the inky beaches wore little more than rubber gloves, complicating efforts, one official said. The oil was spread over 165 square miles of water five days since a pipeline at a busy northeastern port exploded. The cause of the explosion was still not clear.

Alabama player is under investigation

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama coach Nick Saban told ESPN.com that university compliance officials are trying to determine if defensive end Marcell Dareus violated NCAA rules by attending an agent’s party in Florida. NCAA investigators have reportedly interviewed North Carolina players and South Carolina tight end Weslye Saunders regarding the same party in Miami’s South Beach. The ESPN report said the NCAA is trying to determine who paid for the trip. An Alabama spokesman said the school had no immediate comment. Dareus emerged as a rising star after winning defensive MVP honors in the BCS championship game win over Texas. Saban, a former Miami Dolphins coach, told ESPN. com it might be time to ban NFL teams from college campuses to get the league to crack down on rule-breaking agents and “take schools off the hook.” “What the NFL Players Association and the NFL need to do is if any agent breaks a rule and causes ineligibility for a player, they should suspend his (agent’s) license for a year or two,” Saban said. “I’m about ready for college football to say, ‘Let’s just throw the NFL out. Don’t let them evaluate players.”

When he was 9, Wally Wibowo struggled just to stay afloat. Five years later, Wibowo, 14, is one of the fastest swimmers in central Mississippi. Last week in Jackson, Wibowo set a new city record in the 50-meter freestyle at the Jackson City Championships, clocking a time of 23.61 seconds. That shattered the previous record from 1995, held by his coach, Mathew Mixon. Wibowo, a student at St.

Aloysius, will look to improve on the time at the Mississippi Long Course State Meet that begins Thursday at Delta State University. “I started swimming five years ago, but I failed the level 3 test about three straight times and my mom got tired of it. She hired one of the lifeguards to give me private lessons and I just took to it,” Wibowo said. The son of Christine and Dr. Johannes Wibowo, Wally soon began competing locally for the Vicksburg

Swim Association team. Two years ago, he progressed enough to qualify for a zone meet. With a good showing at Delta State, he is looking at a second zone meet and the possibility of reaching some sectional and national qualifying times. “Our goal is to go to sectionals. It’s like making the all-star team for Mississippi,” said Mixon, a former collegiate swimmer at Delta State and the Vicksburg Swim Association coach. “Wally set the Jackson See Wibowo, Page B4.

Rutherford laps field at Clear Creek By Steve Wilson swilson@vicksburgpost.com Warren Central golfer Parker Rutherford is about to embark on a nine tournaments in 10 days odyssey. On Tuesday at the Warren County Junior Championships at Clear Creek Golf Course, Rutherford got off to a rousing start. The 15-year-old shot a sixunder par 65 to lap the field in first day of the the twoday tournament. “It was fun,” Rutherford said. “Anytime you shoot six-under, it’s fun. I birdied two of the first five and I just started hitting good shots.” Second-place golfer Nick Mekus, from St. Al, is nine shots back with a 76, while Rich Phillips is in third place with an 80. St. Aloysius golfer Fisher Campbell is in fourth with an 82. Rutherford parred the first hole and took off from there on the front nine, using an accurate driver and a solid stroke on the greens to card birdie after birdie. He was four-under at the turn and picked up a couple more birdies on the back nine to add to his lead. Despite the flow of birdies slowing down after 12, Rutherford is not worried about keeping up his momentum. Just playing par golf today would be enough for him to take the crown. “After 12, there are some tougher holes, so that might explain it,” Rutherford said. “I’m in uncharted territory right now.” Laura Phillips leads the girls’ division with a 53, with Anna Fletcher in second with a 61. In the 12-13-year-olds’ division, Conner Smith showed the way with a 42 on nine

Last year, Chris Wright sat down and evaluated his life. With a wife and young child at home, his chosen profession of nursing was taking a heavy toll. Long shifts were keeping him at work and draining him mentally and physically. The 27-year-old decided it was time for a change. He went Chris Wright back to school for a degree in education while returning to baseball, the sport he had a passion for which. He got a job at New Hope High School and was looking to make another career move this summer when opprtunity knocked. Wright applied for an assistant coach’s position at twotime Class 1A champion St. Aloysius. Following a flurry of offseason activity that included the resignation of St. Al head coach Clint Wilkerson, Wright ended up with a much bigger assignment. Wright was hired this week as St. Al’s new head coach. He replaces Wilkerson, who spent six years at the school and won back-to-back state titles in 2009 and 2010 before See St. Al, Page B4.

Braves add to NL East lead By The Associated Press ATLANTA — Atlanta’s corner outfielders have returned from thumb injuries to give the Braves more reason to believe they can hold their lead in the NL East. Matt Diaz homered in his third straight game, Jason Heyward added three hits and the Braves beat the San Diego Padres 4-1 on Tuesday night in a matchup of firstplace teams. The two outfielders drove in Atlanta’s four runs to support a strong start from right-hander Jair Jurrjens, who gave up only one run in seven innings. Padres second baseman David Eckstein left the game with a right calf strain and may be bound for the disabled list.

mlb Diaz drove in three runs with a two-run homer in the fourth and a run-scoring single in the seventh. Jason Heyward had three hits, including two doubles, and drove in a run as the Braves expanded a 2-1 lead in the seventh. Diaz said he told Heyward: “It sure is good to hit with a healthy thumb.” Diaz has three homers and eight RBIs in his last three games. He was slowed the first two months of the season by an infection in his right thumb. He finally had surgery on May 20 and came off the disabled list on June 29. Diaz has four homers this season, all in the last two weeks. “He’s over that injury 100

percent,” said manager Bobby Cox, who missed the game because of a one-game suspension. “And you saw tonight what happened. He’s been hot as heck.” Heyward was named an All-Star starter but couldn’t play due to a left thumb injury. The rookie came off the disabled list after the AllStar break. “It’s definitely nice to at least have what you need to be productive,” Heyward said. Chris Denorfia hit a secondinning homer for the Padres, giving him three in his last two games. That was all for the Padres as Jurrjens (3-3) gave up only two hits over his last five innings.

DAVIE, Fla. — The Miami Dolphins have signed guard John Jerry, their third-round selection in this year’s draft.

Ex-Raider Russell pleads not guilty in Ala. case MOBILE, Ala. — Former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell pleaded not guilty to a charge of illegal drug possession Tuesday in Alabama. Russell, 24, is a former LSU star who was released by Oakland after being the No. 1 draft choice in 2007. He entered the plea in court in Mobile. He is charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, codeine syrup. Authorities have said that he did not have a prescription for the drug and that he was arrested July 5 at his home as part of an undercover investigation. His attorney, Donald Briskman, said in a phone interview that there were about nine or 10 people in the house and that he believes once all the evidence is known, Russell will be exonerated. Russell, a prep star in Mobile, had no comment after his court appearance. He has been free on $2,500 bond.

Cubs’ skipper Piniella retiring at season’s end CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Cubs manager Lou Piniella announced Tuesday that he will retire at the end of the season, ending a storied and often colorful career that included 18 years in the majors as a player and another 22 as a manager. The 66-year-old Piniella said he was looking forward to spending more time with his family. “I’ve grown to love the city and the fans but at my age it will be time to enter a new phase in my life,” Piniella said in a statement released by the team. Announcing his retirement now, Piniella added, gives the team time to find a replacement. “I’m proud of our accomplishments during my time here and this will be a perfect way for me to end my career,” he said. “But let me make one thing perfectly

mlb

clear: our work is far from over. I want to keep the momentum going more than anyLou thing else Piniella and win as many games as we can to get back in this pennant race.” The Cubs said Piniella will retire as the 14th-winningest manager in major league history. Piniella is in the fourth and final year of his contract with the Cubs. After leading the Cubs to consecutive NL Central titles in 2007-08, Piniella and his team missed the playoffs last year and have struggled again this season with a new owner, the Ricketts family, in charge.

Braves Continued from Page B1. fect ninth for his 22nd save. The Braves began the day 51⁄2 games ahead of secondplace New York in the NL East. The Braves (55-38) passed the NL West-leading Padres (54-38) for the best record in the National League. Jurrjens gave up five hits, struck out seven and walked three. Jurrjens said it was gratifying to make up for giving up eight runs in 31⁄3 innings in a 17-2 loss at San Diego on April 12. “I wanted to come out this time and at least if they beat me they beat me 100 percent healthy,” he said. “It took a really big weight off my back. ... That game in San Diego really bugged me the whole season.” Wade LeBlanc (4-8) gave up two runs, five hits and

four walks in six innings. The Braves added two runs off Ryan Webb in the seventh. Braves bench coach Chino Cadahia filled in for Cox, who drew the suspension after left-hander Jonny Venters hit Milwaukee’s Prince Fielder with a pitch on Saturday. “Chino was brilliant,” Cox said, adding he didn’t enjoy being removed from the dugout. “It’s nerve-racking, not being part of it.” Venters, appealing his four-game suspension, took over for Jurrjens and retired the Padres in order in the eighth. Eckstein said he was hurt running the bases before he was thrown out at the plate while trying to score from second base.

Wibowo Continued from Page B1. City record last week, breaking a record from 1995. That gives us good momentum going into the state long course meet at Delta State. The time he swam in Jackson met an AAA standard and he’s not far from a quad A standard. In order to go zone, you have to have AAA times,” Mixon said. “I’m just a half-second from making a quadA time in the 50 free,” Wibowo said. The 50 free will be one of seven events Wibowo will swim in at the state meet. “He should be the top seed in the 50 free and he will have a good chance to make the top three in the 100 free, 100 breaststroke and the 200 free,” Mixon said. Wibowo said he expects to see some tough competition in the 13-14 boys class. “There should be about 30 swimmers in it,” he said. Unlike when he started, swimming has become fun for him. “It’s fun. I like going to zone and meeting new people. I just try to do my best,” Wibowo said. Last week at Jackson, Wibowo delivered his best. “I got lucky. I had my good racing suit on. But in the 50 free, so many things can go wrong. You can take a wrong back turn and everything is gone. In that race, everything went great.” he said. With Delta State being a college pool, Wibowo said he expects a better time this week. “It’s a fast pool. The best times tend to be made there,” Wibowo said.

SEC faces troubles before media days BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Bar brawls and NCAA investigations will be hot topics at the Southeastern Conference media days — not just national championships. Troubling events have made headlines in the two weeks leading up to the three-day SEC event that begins today. There was a bar brawl involving Tennessee players and there are potential NCAA troubles brewing at Florida and South Carolina. The latest — and potentially biggest — issue arose with a report Monday that Florida and the NCAA are investigating an allegation that former offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey got $100,000 from a representative of a sports agent before last season ended. The NCAA is also looking into a possible rules violation involving South Carolina tight end Weslye Saunders. SEC commissioner Mike Slive declined to discuss specific issues involving Florida

college football and South Carolina, but said in an interview Monday with The Associated Press that he would like the NCAA at some point to consider changes to rules involving agents. “The agent issue is one that’s been of concern not only to us but I think to everyone associated with intercollegiate athletics and I do think it’s time to re-examine some of the NCAA rules that relate to agents,” he said. “I have felt for a long time that it would be helpful to be able to provide studentathletes with more information and more opportunities to learn what their professional potential might be than is currently allowed by NCAA rules.” Florida coach Urban Meyer — and Pouncey’s brother, Mike — are scheduled to appear at media day this afternoon.

St. Al Continued from Page B1. stepping down last month to pursue other opportunities. “Just the tradition they’ve had the last couple years and the academic status of the school, it was an opportunity that I couldn’t turn down,” Wright said. “I originally applied for the assistant coach’s job. When Coach Wilkerson left it turned into a head coaching job and I really couldn’t turn that down. I was lucky. It normally doesn’t happen that way. I’ll have a learning process this year, and definitely in the classroom.” St. Al principal Michele Townsend said Wright was selected from a pool of about 20 applicants. Most of them were given an initial interview, and five were brought back for a second interview. Townsend said Wright’s background made him an ideal candidate to fill both a coaching and teaching position. Wright will teach biology, health and earth science at St. Al in addition to his coaching duties. “We were looking for a science teacher and a baseball

coach, and that’s what we got,” Townsend said. This is the first head coaching job for Wright, who spent only the one season at New Hope. After a standout high school baseball career at Caledonia, he played collegiately at Meridian Community College and Union University in Jackson, Tenn. Wright stepped away from the game to pursue his nursing degree, but quickly found it wasn’t everything he’d hoped for. He went back to school for a degree in education — he’s scheduled to complete his coursework at Mississippi University for Women early next month — and took a para-professional coaching job at New Hope. New Hope head coach Lee Boyd said Wright’s skill as a player and his enthusiasm made up for a lack of coaching experience. Wright served as the Trojans’ hitting coach and helped the team hit .331. They finished the season 23-8 and reached the second round of the Class 5A playoffs. “Chris did a good job for

me. He’s an excellent offensive guy,” Boyd said. “He understands the kids. He’s on the same level as them in a lot of aspects.” In some ways Wright will have the perfect team for learning on the job. Outfielder Judson Gatling is the only St. Al senior returning next season. Most of the other starting jobs will be filled by freshmen and sophomores, giving the new coach a chance to build a team from the ground up. “Coach Wilkerson was an unbelievable coach. The ones that are still there have been coached well,” Wright said. “I get them while they’re still young and they can buy into my system.” Despite the young players, Wright will inherit a team capable of contending for at least a division championship. Sophomore infielder Reed Evans was second on the team with a .400 batting average last season, while second baseman Matthew Foley and infielder Josh Eargle played well in parttime roles.

He was 85. Warren, who died Monday, came up with the idea for the cockpit voice recorder after investigating the crash of the world’s first commercial jet airliner, the Comet, in 1953, the Department of Defense said in a statement. He thought it would be helpful for airline accident investigators to have a recording of voices in the cockpit. He designed and constructed a black box prototype in 1956, but it took several years before officials understood just how valuable the device could be and began installing them in commercial airlines worldwide.

Clooney to receive humanitarian award George Clooney will be recognized for his humanitarian efforts at the Emmy Awards. The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences will present the 49-year-old actor with its Bob Hope Humanitarian Award at the ceremony next month. Clooney is being honored for the “Hope for Haiti” TV special, which is nominated for an Emmy award, and his efforts to raise funds for victims of Hurricane Katrina and raise awareness George Clooney about genocide in Darfur. John Shaffner, chairman and chief executive of the TV academy, said Clooney was “an obvious choice” because he used the power of television to move people to act. The Bob Hope Humanitarian Award was established in 2002. Clooney is the fourth recipient of the honor and will receive the award at the Emmy ceremony on Aug. 29.

Taylor Swift set to release album No. 3 Taylor Swift will release her third album, “Speak Now,” worldwide on Oct. 25. She announced it to her fans Tuesday through a live web chat. It’s been two years since Swift released her sophomore album “Fearless.” She says, “You’ve got to give yourself a little bit of time to live a lot of things so you can write about a lot of things.” Swift explains that the title, “Speak Now,” is the Taylor theme, and that “track by track, each song is a Swift different confession to a different person.” She wrote all 14 tracks herself. The first single, “Mine,” will be released Aug. 16. Swift also plans to launch a world tour following the release. “Fearless” was the top-selling album of 2009.

Court grants Aniston restraining order A court has issued a temporary restraining order to Jennifer Aniston against a man whom authorities say traveled crosscountry in a delusional attempt to marry her. Court documents filed Tuesday in Santa Monica, Calif., say police detained Jason R. Peyton last week after finding him with a sharp object, duct tape and love notes to the “Friends” star. Authorities say he was stopped after spending days trying to find Aniston on Sunset Boulevard. The filings state Peyton has been accused of stalking others and is disobeying court orders that he must take anti-psychotic medications. The 24-year-old was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold by Los Angeles police. A hearing on the order will be Aug. 9.

Surprise! You’ve got mail — and pot Bills, catalogs, junk mail and marijuana? Police say a surprise 2-pound package of marijuana arrived in the mail last week at one elderly woman’s home in southern Michigan’s Blackman Township, about 75 miles west of Detroit. The woman called police. Detectives don’t know who sent the weed. They learned that the Arizona return address on the package was bogus. Police say the pot is valued at about $2,400. Deputy Director Jon Johnston said the marijuana either was sent to the woman’s home by mistake or someone planned to snatch it from the mailbox before she checked. The pot will be destroyed.

N.Y. eatery that inspired ‘Seinfeld’ reopens NEW YORK (AP) — The bisque is back. The soup stand that inspired the Soup Nazi episode on “Seinfeld” reopened in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday, six years after its famously brusque owner, Al Yeganeh, shut it down and licensed his recipes to a franchising company. More than 100 people were waiting in line for the noon reopening of the tiny storefront, including a few regulars who remembered the days when Yeganeh ladled broth and imposed discipline from behind the cramped counter. Much about the shop was the same as in the days before “Seinfeld” made the place famous, including its strict ordering rules, now posted in nine languages. “THE LINE MUST BE KEPT MOVING. Pick the soup you want! Have your money ready! Move to the extreme left after ordering!” But some things are different. Yeganeh neither owns nor operates the store now. Like other Original SoupMan stores around the country, it is a franchise, although company President Robert Bertrand said Yeganeh remains involved in the business. “He’s not going back there to dish out the soup, but he is still the heart of the company,” Bertrand said. “He still has a key. He handpicked the operator. His soups are his babies.” There is even a webcam that allows Yeganeh to keep tabs on the place during business

Soup in Yeganeh’s kitchen used to be made on the spot, with ingredients so fresh and abundant, the line often stretched around the corner. Now, they are produced in a commercial kitchen and available frozen in select grocery stores. They are also more expensive: An extra-large cup of the crab bisque costs $20. A small cup costs $7. But to some, the soup is splurge-worthy. “This line, this is normal,” said longtime Hell’s Kitchen resident Larry Cappelli, who arrived an hour early in hopes of getting his first taste of the bisque in six years. “It’s awe-

some. I’ve waited in the rain. In the snow. It’s worth it.” Yeganeh, who has become media shy in recent years, stayed away from the grand reopening. In past interviews, he has dismissed the “Seinfeld” episode as an unfair character assassination, bristled at what he calls the N-word and ridiculed Jerry Seinfeld as “an idiot clown.” For this reason, customers at the Original SoupMan shouldn’t expect anyone to shout “No soup for you!” if they don’t move left after ordering. Indeed, some longtime fans of Yeganeh said the whole

“Nazi” thing was overblown. “The guy worked like a dog. He didn’t charge enough for the soup. It was like, $2.50, a cup when he started,” recalled Mark Hoffman, whose company manages a building in the neighborhood. “And he was always a nice guy. Humble.” As for Yeganeh’s no-show at the launch, Bertrand said it wasn’t a surprise. “That’s his mystique. But I wouldn’t be surprised if he was watching from a window up there,” he said, pointing at an apartment building across the street.

U.S. should nationalize $ 79 . 6 oil resources, Stone says LONDON (AP) — The Gulf of Mexico oil spill shows that the United States should f o l l ow t h e exa mp l e o f South AmerOliver ican socialStone ists in nationalizing its energy industry, filmmaker Oliver Stone said Tuesday. The Academy Award-winning director of “Born on the Fourth of July” and “JFK” said that America’s country’s natural wealth was too important to be left in private hands, telling journalists in central London that oil and other natural resources “belong to the people.” “This BP oil spill is typical” of what happens when private industry is allowed to draw revenue on what should be a public good, Stone said. “We shouldn’t make this kind of profit on oil or on health or on war or on prisons. All these industries should be public industries.” Stone, 63, is in the British capital to promote his documentary, “South of the Border,” which tells the story of firebrand Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and his leftwing Latin American allies. The 75-minute film is meant to draw attention to the social improvements ushered in by Chavez, who has nationalized parts of Venezuela’s economy, including important bits of the oil sector and big chunks of the banking, electric and steel industries. Bolivian leader Evo Morales, also interviewed by Stone for the documentary,

has similarly expanded the state’s control over the country’s energy infrastructure.

Sex, drug education needed more than ever Dear Abby: When I was a young teen, my mother gave me a copy of your booklet “What Every Teen Should Know.” She left it on my bed for me to read at my own pace, and let me know that I could come to her if I had any questions, when I was ready to ask them. For years that booklet served as a reference guide for me. I also lent it to many of my friends whose parents were not so forthcoming with this important information. Being informed and not believing urban myths made a big difference in our decisions — and we’re all doing well now. A decade later, I often work with teens who have received no comprehensive education about sex, drugs, or the impact of decisions they make during adolescence. Your booklet remains an important tool in these kids’ educations. I write to encourage all parents, grandparents and rela-

DEAR ABBY ABIGAIL

tives of teens to keep a copy of this booklet handy — and to thank those who have already done so. — Kristen Woytonik, Dover, N.H. Dear Kristen: Thank you for your endorsement of my teen booklet. I am pleased that you continue to find it useful. Today many young people engage in adult activities at a much earlier age than the teenagers of previous generations. That’s why it is so important for parents to take the initiative and discuss alcohol, drugs, sex and FAMILY VALUES with their children well before nature takes over and they start experimenting.

My teen booklet contains answers to commonly asked questions such as: How old must a girl be before she can get pregnant? Can a girl get pregnant the first time she has sex? What time of the month is a girl 100 percent safe? How old must a boy be before he can father a child? Another important topic covered is HOW TO AVOID DATE RAPE AND WHAT TO DO IF IT HAPPENS. To order “What Every Teen Should Know,” send your name and address, plus check or money order for $6 (U.S. funds) to Dear Abby, Teen Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. My teen booklet also contains information on contraception and sexually transmitted diseases and how to recognize them. It has been distributed in doctors’ offices and used to promote discussion by educators and reli-

gious leaders, and is often used by parents who find it difficult to discuss sex with their children. Dear Abby: My niece is being married — again. This will be No. 5. What kind of gift would you suggest? I am out of ideas, as I’m thinking she already has everything. The wedding is in a few months. Help! — Stumped in Reno Dear Stumped: After the second — or third — wedding, one would think the marriage would be a quiet, low-key affair. And because you have already given her four wedding gifts, what you should send her is your good wishes for a long and successful marriage.

Reader asks if ADD, cluster headaches linked ASK THE DOCTOR Dr. PETER

GOTT

drooping eyelid, stuffy or runny nose, sweating, flushing, tearing, nausea and sensitivity to light. There is no cure for cluster headaches. The goal is to reduce the severity of pain and shorten the duration of each episode. Treatment focuses on prevention and commonly includes injectible Imitrex except for those people diagnosed with uncontrolled hypertension or ischemic heart disease. In those two instances, Octreotide would be a better choice for control. Beyond that, dihydroergotamine might be used, but is only given in a physician’s

office or hospital setting. Xylocaine as a nasal drop remains another choice. In otherwise healthy people, oxygen, lithium, verapamil and older antidepressants known as tricyclic antidepressants may be beneficial. In terms of medication, I believe your son’s best bet is what is prescribed by his physician who knows his complete history. Dear Dr. Gott: I am a 60-yearold cleaning lady. In January 2009, my face felt like it had menthol on it with a burning sensation on both cheeks that has continued 24 hours a day since then. Even the corners of my mouth burn. I went to a skin specialist three times. He prescribed Pramosone, Doxycycline and Prascion, none of which worked. What kind of doctor do I go to next? I hope you can help me. Dear Reader: I am confused

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr Wallace: Help! I’m hoping you’ll have some advice to help me get rid of this problem, which seems to be wrecking my whole life at the moment. I was going with this boy last summer and I thought I really liked him. He joined the Army, and that’s when I began to realize that I didn’t like him all that much. Other guys here keep looking better and better. After thinking things over, I decided we should break up. We had a lot of differences: He was pushy — I didn’t want that. I practically live at church — he didn’t like that. Plus, a whole lot more differences of opinion. Anyway, now that you kind of have an idea, here’s the

problem: I wrote to him and he answered my letter by saying that he understood and maybe it was for the better. I was so happy to know that he understood that I kept on writing to him (which he had asked me to do), and I made sure he knew we were only friends. Well, just recently he wrote saying, “I don’t want you pretending that you don’t love me if you still do!” I couldn’t believe it! I have told him so many times how I feel. I’m only 17 and have no intentions of getting serious with anybody. He wants to get married. No way! I know in my heart everything is over between us, but he doesn’t. How can I keep him from bugging me about things when I

only have one answer (“No”) to each question he asks? — Nameless, Lake Charles, La. Nameless: All relationship problems should be so easy to solve. Just stop writing to him. Don’t try to be his friend right now because it’s not going to work. He still harbors a hope that the friendship will turn into love. Since you’re adamant that it won’t, write one more courtesy letter letting him know where things stand and inform him this is your last communication with him. Then stop writing. If he keeps writing to you, don’t respond. He’ll get the message eventually. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@ Copley News Service.

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: You could reach new heights in your chosen field of endeavor in the year ahead when you let past experiences guide your actions. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — This is one of those days where hard work could pay off more handsomely than usual for you. It is likely to enhance your earning ability and add to your resources. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — You’ll enjoy life a lot better today if you immerse yourself in some kind of significant project or aim for an impressive goal. When you do something important, you’ll feel good about who you are. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t believe people who tell you profit is a dirty word. Engage in honest work and larger returns than usual could be in the offing. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You shouldn’t permit yourself to be intimidated by the re-

sults of others, because they look at your work, and are equally daunted. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Conditions that require you to prove yourself will awaken your ambitions today as well as your resourcefulness. Once you get going on a project, you’ll be at your best. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — That fun charm you possess will turn sour faces into smiles today. Your warmth, enthusiasm and friendliness are capable of penetrating even the hardest of hearts. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — What you have going for you today is greater than anything that might oppose you. Don’t give up at the first hint of trouble. Success comes from perseverance. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — In order to be successful, you must first have confidence in yourself and your abilities. If you need to iron out some kind of an agree-

ment, be firm, be far-sighted and above all be fair. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Benefits you weren’t seeking might be granted you in a development where you were merely trying to be of service to another. It proves that being nice does pay off. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Get involved in some kind of social activity with friends today if you can. You’ll have a wonderful time, even if you’re not with you’re regular pals. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Shift your needs to second place today and attend to the immediate cares of those in your charge. Once you’ve secured their interest, you’ll feel free to do as you please. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Steer clear of pessimistic people as much as you can, because they would most assuredly have a negative affect on your good outlook today. Hang out with happy types who like to laugh a lot.

why you experience symptoms now unless you have been exposed to an allergen, are on a new medication, herb or other supplement, or have had an unidentified occurrence in your life. Could you have undiagnosed rosacea or seborrheic dermatitis? Have you changed jobs and are exposed to central air conditioning or different cleaning agents? Did you get a new pet? Pramosone is a hydrocortisone steroid, Doxycycline is an antibiotic and Prascion is an antibacterial agent. Your skin specialist appeared to cover all the bases but failed to alleviate your symptoms. Therefore, you should request referral to another dermatologist who can either correctly diagnose your condition or determine what is causing it and prescribe accordingly.

Dear Dr. Gott: Our 30-yearold grandson has a history of cluster headaches that started when he was in elementary school. He also has ADD. Could that have anything to do with the headaches? What do you recommend as the best medication for adult ADD? Dear Reader: Cluster headaches can occur every day or over a period of weeks or months. They can occur during a particular season, only to reappear the following year during the same time period. They can strike quickly, without warning, and appear all on the same side of the head. They may be present at the same time on successive evenings, and sufferers can almost set their clocks and calendars by their occurrence. They often occur during the night and appear to most commonly affect middleaged men. Symptoms can include a

The

ABCs

of writing a classified ad

AA fewvoidaccepted Abbreviations and recognizable abbreviations are ok, but an ad full of them just confuses the reader A good rule of thumb is “Spell it out or leave it out”.

BListeyourAvailable telephone number so that the potential buyer will know how to contact you. State the best hours to call so they’ll know when they can reach you.

C onsider Your Readers Put yourself in the reader’s place. If you were considering buying this item, what would you want to know about it? Give the item’s age, condition, size, color, brand name and any other important information needed to describe it completely & accurately.

D on’t Exaggerate Misleading information may bring potential buyers to your home but it will not help you make the sale. You’ll lose the prospect’s trust and faith as well at the sale.

EPricenteris onetheofPrice the biggest concerns of classified shoppers. Ads that list prices will get their attention first. Including price also helps you avoid inquiries from callers not in our price range. Place Your Classified Ad Today!
