Seven-year cop, deputy charged with sex crimes London Williams Jr. out of jail after appearance in court
By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press
By Pamela Hitchins phitchins@vicksburgpost. com A seven-year local law enforcement officer until last month was jailed Wednesday, charged after a grand jury indictment on one count of sexual battery and one count of incest. London Williams Jr., 40, 4425 Nailor Road, waived arraignment this morning before Circuit Judge M. James Chaney. Williams was released from the jail later this morning on a $25,000 bond. Williams had not been arrested during investigation of the accusations and was booked only after indictment by the grand jury, which is meeting this week. The complaint against Williams was made May 6, said Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace. The case was investigated by the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, the detective arm of the state police. “We were notified that the investigation was ongoing,” said District Attorney Ricky Smith after this morning’s hearing. “MBI provided us with a completed case file, and based on that information we decided to present the case to the grand jury, which resulted in the indictment.” Williams had last worked for the Warren County Sheriff’s Department April 6 when he was injured in a wreck at Clay and North Frontage roads and placed on medical leave, Pace said. The complaint that led to Wednesday’s arrest initially was made to the Vicksburg Police Department, the sheriff said. “The incident that was reported

PHILADELPHIA — State Sen. Alan Nunnelee of Tupelo, the Republican nominee in north Mississippi’s 1st Congressional District, used his speech Wednesday at the Neshoba County Fair to criticize the U.S. House speaker, Democrat Nancy Pelosi of California. Nunnelee said the Democrat-controlled Congress has pushed policies, including a massive health care overhaul, that Sen. Alan are too expenNunnelee sive and too intrusive. He On A10 is trying to Michigan fights unseat Demoits own spill crat Travis Childers, who was first elected in 2008. Nunnelee said Democratic congressional leaders know they could lose their jobs if they lose north Mississippi and other seats. “This is a crusade to save America,” Nunnelee said of his own campaign. Childers was not scheduled to speak at the fair. Neshoba County is not in the 1st District, but politicians for decades have flocked to the fair to speak to crowds under a tinroofed pavilion. Earlier, Attorney General Jim Hood, a Democrat who is seeking a third term next year, said he’s working with attorneys general from other coastal states to ensure people are fairly compensated for losses from the BP oil spill. “Unfortunately, I don’t anticipate them being as nice once this well is capped and all the interest dies down,” Hood said of BP officials. Away from the fair, Gov. Haley Barbour told the nation’s lieutenant governors that the state probably will suffer more economi-

Merchants across Vicksburg are gearing up for the second Sales Tax Holiday this weekend by promising good deals on items such as children’s clothing and shoes just in time for backto-school shopping. “This year, we’re expecting a bigger crowd because people know about it now and they’re expecting it.” said Outlets at Vicksburg’s marketing and events manager Paige Caldwell. Stores there, around Vicksburg and at most other places in the state will be offering discounts in addition to the 7 percent savings that come with a two-day suspension of Mississippi’s general sales.

Fifteen auto burglaries were reported in the past two days in Vicksburg, and authorities believe nine of them, in adjacent neighborhoods off U.S. 61 South, are related, Vicskburg police said. Separately, two men were arrested Wednesday after a customer at Kroger reported three men had broken into her vehicle while it was parked in the lot on Pemberton Square Boulevard. The first of the two arrested, Thomas Dearman, 17, Battlefield Campground Lot 13 4407 N. Frontage Road, was nabbed at Murphy gas station, 4103 Pemberton Square Blvd., minutes after the victim told police her purse was stolen, Sgt. Sandra Williams said. The second suspect, Tommy

Damean Ellis, 23, 1225 Bailey Ave., and Latezz Hogan, 24, 1608 N. Blair St., were charged with uttering a forgery and conspiracy to commit forgery, Williams said. The two are accused of cashing forged checks Monday at Walmart on Iowa Boulevard, Williams said.

Uncertainty about whether the Warren County Extension Service will have a new director was one topic during the first of three days of budget talks among supervisors. Another topic was how to apply the portion of gaming tax revenue remaining when the budget year starts Oct. 1. The Mississippi State University-based Extension Service has been without a director here since John Coccaro retired July 1. Replacements must be proposed by one of the service’s four regional offices and approved by county governing boards, who fund part of the director’s salary of about $50,000. Statewide, more than $1.4 million in salaries and equipment was cut from the extension service budget this year. Supervisors here said no funding request for the job, formerly called a county agent, had been made. Extension officials said the Warren County job had not been eliminated, but it had not been funded either. Job cuts involve 13 directors and other staff in the service’s Raymond-based Central Mississippi Research and Extension Center, of which Warren County’s office is a part, interim head Dr. Stephen Dicke said Wednesday. “We want the very best candidate we can get our hands on,” Dicke said, “But, we don’t have the permission to fill the position yet.” Marcus Davis, an 11-year employee in the Warren

County office, is serving as interim director. One restructuring plan outlined does away with individual county directors and creates “clusters” of two to four counties. Each grouping’s counties would be staffed with four office workers and six agents — two each for agriculture, Four-H youth development and family and consumer sciences. In the past five years, Warren County has kicked in up to $83,000 to fund the local office. Cutbacks to build up reserves are poised to lower that for 2010-11, with a $76,043 allocation eyed for 2010-11, County Administrator John Smith said. Gaming funds are projected to show a carry-over cash balance of $956,316 for next year, up by $247,465 from this year. Spending out of the gaming fund is projected at $3,348,684 in 2010-11, compared to $2,205,000 in revenue — a loss due to supervisors’ renewed push to catch up on road maintenance. Second to roads on the fund’s to-do list is $220,000 for 10 more patrol vehicles in the sheriff’s department. General fund projections are on tap for discussion today, as supervisors expect to discuss the sheriff’s department and jail budget requests. The board has given every indication the budget will be smaller than this year’s $15 million spending plan. An objection hearing is scheduled for Monday at 9 a.m. in supervisors’ third-floor boardroom in the courthouse for people to voice opinions on their property values.

Mississippians get first peek at state Persian Gulf War Memorial By Tish Butts email@example.com Lawmakers unveiled a design for the Mississippi Persian Gulf War Memorial Wednesday during a ceremony at the Capitol building in Jackson. The memorial will be a plaza — consisting of a 30-foot marble wall of names and photos of Mississippians killed during the era and a 12-foot marble monument sitting on nearly an acre of land off U.S. Maj. Gary 80, between Torres Newton and Hickory — said Randy Reeves, deputy director of the Mississippi Veterans Affairs Board. The property was transferred earlier this month to the board from the Mississippi State University Coastal Plans Experiment Station in Newton. The memorial will sit adjacent to the Mississippi Vet-
submitted to The Vicksburg Post
A sketch of the Mississippi Persian Gulf War Memorial, planned for completion next year erans Memorial Cemetery, being constructed off U.S. 80 and set to open as early as spring 2011. It will start with information on 88 service members, and will honor Mississippi veterans of Operation Desert Shield, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. “We’re going through the longest war of our history,” Reeves said of Persian Gulf
operations from 1990 to the present. “We’ve got young Mississippians giving everything they’ve got, including their lives.” The first Persian Gulf War began in 1991 as a result of Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait months earlier and Iraqi President Saddam Hussein’s refusal to withdraw troops from the country. 412th Theater Engineer Command soldier Maj. Gary
Torres, who has been in Mississippi for a month, served in the Persian Gulf from 19901991 and again in 2002. The 412th is based in Vicksburg. “Taking a position of honoring veterans is great,” he said. “I’m really glad people are thinking of us.” Torres, a native of Puerto Rico, was a 20-year-old Army Reserve specialist serving as a heavy construction repairman during Desert Shield before being promoted to a sergeant serving in Desert Storm with the 3rd Armor Combat Regime. He said one of his most memorable moments during the war nearly 20 years ago was delivering food to Iraqi people in Basra. “We weren’t ready for that,” said Torres. “They were desperate. They didn’t have food for two weeks.” He spent the following years serving with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Panama, Special Operations Command South in Puerto Rico and the National Training Center at
Fort Irwin, Calif. The 41-year-old soldier returned to the area during Operation Enduring Freedom in 2002 as a captain in charge of training engineers to collect information on what soldiers needed to better prepare them before leaving the U.S. He plans to spend the next 18 months in Vicksburg serving with the 412th, of which about 40 soldiers returned
from Afghanistan last week after nearly a year of finding and detonating land mines in the country. The memorial is expected to be complete by next year, possibly early summer, Reeves said: “It’s appropriate for us to move as quickly as we can to honor them.” The wall can hold 200 names, but “we pray it never has to,” he said.

Liquor store wins expansion OK F&G Beverage owner Steven Tzotzolas has received the OK from the Vicksburg Board of Architectural Review to build an addition to his liquor store at 1707 Washington St. on the former site of Thomas Furniture Store. The board voted unanimously Tuesday to allow the addition, immediately south of where the liquor store currently operates, as long as Tzotzolas provides some landscaping and shrubbery in front of the metal building. In February 2009, the board approved demolition of Thomas Furniture Store and gave Tzotzolas preliminary
from staff reports permission to add on to his business. On Tuesday, architectural plans on the addition were presented to the board by Vicksburg Foundation for Historic Preservation Executive Director Nancy Bell, who represented Tzotzolas before the board. Board members present were Dorwin Shields, Sue Seratt, Toni Lanford-Ferguson, Tom Pharr and Troy Weeks. The board also OK’d meeting minutes from July 13.

Private sector reeling from regulations President Barack Obama is famous for asking for advice, then ignoring it. He asked business leaders exactly what it is about his policies that has them so fretful. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce responded to the president’s request with a detailed letter outlining what his administration has done to hurt business, and suggested some remedies. We hope he listens. As one might imagine, taxes topped the chamber’s list of grievances. Noting that Congress has passed $700 billion in tax increases, the business group asked that all of the tax cuts adopted in 2001 be extended. Congress and the White House aren’t sure which of the cuts they’ll allow to expire at the end of the year, and that has contributed to an increasingly uncertain environment for investors. The Washington Post reported that Fortune 500 companies are sitting on $2 trillion in cash that ought to be going into economic development, but isn’t because the corporations are worried about the future tax and regulatory climate. In its letter to Obama, the cham-
ber said the uncertainty isn’t just a gut feeling, but is rooted in the reality that Washington is on a regulatory binge, citing a “tsunami of regulations” now coming into force. The letter cited as an example the 29 major economic rules moving through the Environmental Protection Agency with the potential negative impact on business of at least $100 million each. Most worrisome to the business leaders is the financial-markets regulation signed last week. In effect, it’s a shell bill, leaving at least 350 rules to be decided by regulators. The compliance costs alone, banking executives say, will force smaller banks to merge with larger institutions, making the too-big-to-fail banks even more dominant. The chamber also asked Obama to move on his pledge to complete trade deals with Columbia, South Korea and Panama, and to cut the deficit by expanding logging in national forests and reviving inactive leases on oil, gas and shale reserves. There’s no way to predict whether Obama will heed the
advice. He has been remarkably stubborn in his resistance to the possibility that the private sector could lead the recovery. At a recent White House meeting that included former President Bill Clinton and several top business leaders, the conversation was about boosting the economy through a new federal home weatherization program — hardly the solution business is looking for. But the fact that business groups are starting to find their voice in pointing out the economic consequences of the Obama agenda is encouraging. Americans must be made aware of the real harm when small companies must spend so much time on compliance, leaving little to innovation. And the president should understand the damage he’s doing to consumer and investor confidence with his relentless demonizing of major industries. America needs business as a full participant in the economic recovery. The president says he knows that, but seems inept in dealing with the concept of “leave us alone.”

Obama can do a ‘Nixon goes to China’ on jobs The economy is weak and the public is angry. What should President Barack Obama do? He could do what Richard Nixon did: Go to China. I don’t mean take a trip to Beijing. I mean do something unexpected and out of political character. In this case, listen to Republicans and the business community (and a few Democrats) and try using tax cuts to get the economy moving. He could call for Congress to postpone the scheduled repeal of most or all of President George W. Bush’s 2001 and 2003 tax cuts and also call for a cut in the corporate tax rate, now second-highest in the world. He also could call for a payroll tax holiday to encourage hiring and possibly win bipartisan support for some stimulus spending, daring Republicans to make a fuss about the danger of enlarging the federal deficit. He could address the deficit in next year’s budget after the bipartisan debt commission comes up with a comprehensive solution at the end of this year, which should include tax and entitlement reform plus recommendations for new revenue sources. Obama clearly is a Keynesian and so are his economic advisers. Their
Obama should do as Harvard economist N. Gregory Mankiw recommends: Have some intellectual humility and see if something else might work — namely, tax cuts.
2009 stimulus plan was heavy on government spending to fight the recession. Obama claims it’s working, but the public doesn’t believe it. And at the best, it’s creating only about 100,000 jobs a month — less than half of what’s necessary to bring the country back to 5 percent unemployment in 10 years. The president, most of his allies in Congress and liberal outside economists — also devout believers in John Maynard Keynes’ “demand side” economics — think that more spending is the answer, plus some targeted tax cuts. But, by 51 percent to 40 percent, according to a just-released Pew poll, the public prefers reducing the federal deficit to spending more on job
creation. Republicans are relying on that kind of polling to say “no” to new spending, or at least to demand that any outlays be offset with other budget cuts. Enough conservative and moderate Democrats — or just nervous ones — are of the same opinion that there’s no chance of getting big spending through Congress, even if economists such as Paul Krugman and Alan Blinder of Princeton University, Columbia University’s Joseph Stiglitz, and Robert Reich of the University of California, Berkeley, say it’s necessary to ward off a 1930s-style economic failure. So what should Obama do? He should do as Harvard economist N. Gregory Mankiw, President George
W. Bush’s former chief economic adviser, recommends: Have some intellectual humility and see if something else might work — namely, tax cuts. Mankiw cites several academic studies — including one by Obama’s own chief economist, Christina Romer (written before she went to work for Obama) — showing that tax cuts have a bigger growth “multiplier” effect than government spending. That is, each dollar of tax cuts — particularly business and income tax cuts — produces (depending on the study) from $3 to $5 in economic growth, up to four times the effect of increases in government spending. In a Nixon-goes-to-China move, Obama could adopt some of the recommendations recently made by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce at its Jobs for America Summit. (Disclosure: I was paid to moderate a bipartisan congressional panel at the conference.) An “open letter” to Obama and Congress issued in conjunction with the conference asserted that “our precariously weak economy — and especially our all-important smallbusiness sector — simply cannot sustain (the) massive tax hikes” that
automatic expiration of the Bush tax cuts will impose next year. In 2011, the top individual income tax rate is scheduled to jump from its present 35 percent to 39.6 percent — and to nearly 45 percent, including new Medicare taxes passed as part of Obama’s health care plan. Adding state taxes will put the rate above 50 percent. Obama and Congressional Democrats intend to extend the Bush tax cuts for all Americans making under $250,000 a year — adding $2.3 trillion to the deficit over 10 years. Extending them for everyone would add another $700 billion. Supply-sider Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., the ranking member on the Budget Committee, told me that Republicans have quietly offered to help Democrats pass a two-year extension of the Bush cuts. “There are no bites,” he said. “The problem for them is that they would have to concede that lower top tax rates are good for growth.” But it’s worth a try. And what’s better — ideological purity or a fast reduction in the jobless rate? •

smart money Q: I have a book-smart husband, but he is not street smart. For example, he refuses to have a will. We have a good income, very little left to pay on our mortBRUCE gage and money invested in a 401(k). My husband recently found out that he is diabetic, and now he won’t take out life insurance on himself. I think he must be sensing his own mortality now because he has been going on spending sprees. Even though we can afford his spending, what happens if he dies unexpectedly and with no insurance to help out? I have a teaching degree and have thought about going back into the work force just to set aside
some money for what I might need in the future. What do you think? — G.J., via e-mail A: It sounds like you hit the nail on the head when you said “he senses his mortality.” He was probably diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, which is hardly a death sentence. Why he refuses to make out a will and not carry insurance is beyond me. That having been said, it seems to me that you are doing the right thing — planning for yourself. There is nothing wrong with a midlife change in career paths. Whether graduate training or teaching credentials is the best route is a matter of personal preference and the job market where you live. That said, it’s a shame that you couldn’t have your husband sit down with someone he trusts and advise him of the mistakes he is making. •

TOKYO (AP) — Toyota is recalling 412,000 passenger cars, mostly the Avalon model, in the U.S., an additional 16,420 vehicles in Japan for steering problems, the automaker said today. The 373,000 Avalons being recalled in the U.S. range from the 2000 model year through to 2004 and have improper casting of the steering lock bar —
a component for the steering system — causing cracks to develop on the surface. In some cases, the crack can cause the lock bar to break, potentially leading to a crash if the steering wheel locks, the world’s No. 1 automaker by car sales said. No injuries have been reported from the accidents that may be caused by the defect, it said.
Recalled in Japan for a similar problem are 6,750 vehicles, called Pronard, built from February 2000 through January 2004, Toyota and the Japanese transport ministry said. There have been three reported problems linked to the defect but no accidents in Japan, the ministry said. Also being recalled in the U.S. are 39,000 Lexus luxury
model LX 470s for the 20032007 model years because of a steering shaft problem, which is different from the Avalon steering problem, according to Toyota. The latest recall comes on top of some 8.5 million vehicles that have been recalled around the world by Toyota Motor Corp. since October for a spate of problems.
Foreclosure activity up in 5 Louisiana metros NEW ORLEANS — Five Louisiana metropolitan areas posted year-to-year increases in foreclosure activity during the first half of 2010, according to a national study released today. Irvine, Calif.-based RealtyTrac, which tracks foreclosures nationwide, said more homeowners underwent some step of foreclosure — ranging from an initial notice of default to outright repossession and sale — in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge regions, as well as in Houma-Thibodaux, Shreveport-Bossier City and Lafayette. RealtyTrac surveyed 206 areas with populations of at least 200,000.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS tion Wednesday to a plan for customers of Entergy Gulf States Louisiana to pay about $7.8 million annually into an escrow account to decommission the River Bend nuclear plant at St. Francisville. They currently pay nothing. The same order calls for Entergy Louisiana customers to pay $5.9 million a year to decomission the Waterford 3 plant at Taft. That will add 60 cents per 1,000 kilowatt hours to Entergy Gulf States Louisiana bills, and 10 cents per 1,000 kilowatt hours to Entergy Louisiana bills, said spokesman Philip Allison. Entergy Mississippi, part of Entergy Corp., is the primary electricity provider in Warren County.

Stock futures rise on global earnings NEW YORK — Stock futures rose this morning after a new batch of upbeat earnings and a modest drop in jobless claims renewed some optimism about the economy. Ahead of the opening bell,

Mississippi lawmakers first passed legislation in 2009 to host a tax-free holiday near the beginning of the school year to match neighboring states and to keep shoppers in the state. A criticism is that the exemption does not apply to accessories such as jewelry, handbags, wallets, watches, backpacks, school supplies and computers. The Mississippi State Tax Commission website, where a list of eligible and noneligible items can be found, also says that cleats and items worn in conjunction with an athletic or recreational activity are not eligible for the waiver. The website at www.dor. ms.gov also lists towns that are not participating in the holiday. After a big year in 2009, retailers are adding more incentives. “Everything in the whole
store is an extra 20 percent off,” said Helen Gilmore, assistant manager of OshKosh B’gosh, a children’s apparel shop. “We have uniforms in red, blue, white, but we don’t have any in green. This tax-free holiday is extremely beneficial to our customers.” A similar sale can be found at The Children’s Place, where store manager Valerie Herran said her children’s shop is also offering added discounts on school uniforms. “It’s been slow this week, but everybody will come out this weekend,” she said. “People really do wait for it and they look at that 7 percent.” Parents are eager to hit the stores this weekend as much as businesses are eager to offer discounts. “We are definitely planning to go shopping this weekend,” said Adriana Heindl,
who was doing some preweekend shopping Wednesday for her five kids, ages 11, 10, 2, 1 and 3-weeks-old. Heindl, a Clinton resident who frequently shops in Vicksburg, said shopping incentives like the tax-free holiday helps families with children especially during the back-to-school stretch. Norma Massey, owner of downtown Frederick’s Shoe Store children’s shop, said she has ordered more items such as children’s shoes and dancing duds for the anticipated weekend rush. “People are already beginning to shop for back-toschool,” she said. “This taxfree holiday will help people save money especially those who have more than one child.” This weekend, the downtown area might attract a more-than-normal weekend crowd with the Summertime Blues Jam outdoor concert
to benefit the cleanup of the April 20 Gulf Coast oil spill. “We’re hoping for a good crowd,” said Les Pearman, owner of Washington Street’s Duff’s Tavern & Grille, one of the sponsors of the benefit concert. The event, also sponsored by The Upper End Lounge and Willingham’s, will feature Grammy-winning musician Jimbo Mathus, Rocket 88 and many local artists. Admission is $12 in advance at the any of the sponsors’ location or $15 at the gate. “I hope this will bring a lot of people downtown,” Pearman said. “This is all about the benefit.” The towns not participating in the Sales Tax Holiday are Artesia, Bolton, Crenshaw, Enterprise, Fayette, Guntown, Heidelberg, Leland, Lumberton, Magnolia, Meadville, Purvis, Sherman and Thaxton.
cally than environmentally from the oil spill. During the annual meeting in Biloxi, Barbour told the National Lieutenant Governors Association, “As you noticed, I hope, the beaches are clean, the water is clear, the food is great.” Barbour was to speak at the fair today. At Neshoba, State Auditor Stacey Pickering said his office will try to find ways for government to cut spending. Pickering said people who care about Mississippi’s children need to run for office. “Otherwise, we’re surrendering their future to the lowest common denominator,” Pickering said. Pickering, a Republican, has not said what office he’ll seek in 2011.
Burglaries some of which yielded goods, were reported Wednesday and this morning. On Wednesday, thefts were reported in Warrenton Heights subdivision off U.S. 61 South and Redbone Road, on Linda Drive, Maple Drive, Ethel Drive, Manship Circle and Belva Drive. Among items stolen were: • An iPod, charger and a pair of sunglasses from a 2009 Ford Mustang in the 300 block of Linda Drive, reported at 3:54 p.m. • A Panasonic CD player, a wallet and contents from a 1996 Mazda Protege in the 100 block of Maple Circle at 11:33 a.m.
• A Canon digital camera from a 2007 Honda Civic in the 100 block of Ethel Drive at 8:27 a.m. • Nothing from a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado in the 200 block of Manship Circle at 7:30 a.m. or from a 1999 Ford Expedition in the 100 block of Belva Drive at 7:06 a.m. In reports filed this morning nothing was reported missing, but Williams said she believes they are related to the Wednesday break-ins. Vehicles entered in the 300 block of Northridge Drive were: • A 1993 Mazda at 4:18 a.m. • A 1993 Subaru Legacy at
4:01 a.m. • A 1999 Nissan at 3:09 a.m. Nearby, in the 700 block of Belva Drive, a Pioneer stereo was reported stolen from a 1996 Chevrolet 1500. In other areas throughout the city, which Williams said she does not believe are related to the thefts off 61 South, electronics and a purse were missing. Walkie Talkie radios and an iPhone car charger were reported missing at 9:11 p.m. from a 2007 Pontiac Vibe in the 3300 block of Drummond Street, and a Compaq laptop computer was reported missing at 10:15 a.m. from a 1997 Honda Civic in the 100 block
Ethel Street. At 8:21 a.m., a purse and makeup were reported stolen from a 2006 Mazda 6 in the Marriott Courtyard, 1 Underwood Drive. In Warren County, at 2:47 this morning, a pickup in the 3800 block of Redwood Road was reported entered but nothing was reported missing. At 8:39 a.m. Wednesday, an amplifier, speakers, cologne and CDs were reported stolen from a Jeep Grand Cherokee in the 7000 block of U.S. 61 South.
career, Williams had been both a deputy and Vicksburg police officer. He was sworn in to the VPD in August 2003 and served for about a year or a year and a half, said Lt. Bobby Stewart. He then moved to the sheriff’s department, but returned to the VPD in February 2007, staying for about
10 months. During that time he ran unsuccessfully for sheriff of Issaquena County. He returned to the Warren County Sheriff’s Department in January 2008, two months after his unsuccessful campaign, and was named an investigator with the department. At VPD, Williams was a
patrolman, Stewart said, and a reliable employee. “His work ethics were good,” the lieutenant said. “He seemed like a good person of sound moral character. I don’t anything about the incident that was alleged to have occurred.” Williams’ wife was among several people attending the
hearing this morning. He is represented by Jackson attorney Michael Marks, who was not in the courtroom. Smith said that Marks had been retained by Williams some time ago, indicating he knew the investigation was under way.

Judge shoots down most of Ariz. immigration law; appeal on the way PHOENIX — States that had been watching Arizona’s immigration law in hopes of copying it received a rude awakening Wednesday when a judge put most of the measure on hold and agreed with the Obama administration’s core argument that immigration enforcement is the role of the federal government. The ruling marked a repudiation of the Arizona law as U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton indicated that the government has a good chance at succeeding in its argument that federal immigration law trumps state law. It was an important first-round victory for the government in a fight that may not be settled until the U.S. Supreme Court weighs in. Gov. Jan Brewer called Wednesday’s decision “a bump in the road” and vowed to appeal today.

The family of Petty Officer 3rd Class Jarod Newlove, a 25-year-old from the Seattle area, had been notified of his death, the U.S. military official said. Newlove and Petty Officer 2nd Class Justin McNe-
ley went missing last Friday in Logar province. NATO recovered the body of McNeley — a 30-year-old father of two from Wheatridge, Colo. — in the area Sunday.
One killed, two hurt in park bear attack COOKE CITY, Mont. — A woman who was attacked by a bear in the middle of the night at a busy campground was bitten on her arm and leg before she instinctively played dead so the animal would leave her alone, she said today. At least one bear rampaged through the campground near Yellowstone National Park on Wednesday, killing one man and injuring Deb Freele of London, Ontario, and another man. The male survivor in the attack, thought to be a teen-
ager, suffered puncture wounds on his calf.
4 killed in plane crash at Alaska military base ELMENDORF AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska — Four airmen were killed when a cargo plane crashed during a training run at an Alaska Air Force base, sending a fireball hundreds of feet into the air, military authorities and witnesses said. Three of the men were in the Alaska Air National Guard and the fourth was on active duty at Elmendorf Air Force Base, Air Force Col. John McMullen said today. Their names have not been released pending notification of relatives. The C-17 was from the 3rd Wing, based at Elmendorf near downtown Anchorage.

Numbers sag for 2010 Governor’s Cup youth baseball
By Steve Wilson email@example.com
Missing man Ex-NBA star, Mississippi native Wright believed dead in Memphis/B3
Team numbers are down going into the first weekend of the Governor’s Cup, which starts Friday at Bazinsky Field and Halls Ferry Park. The first weekend of the tournament, run by the Vicksburg Warren Athletic Association, continues Saturday and Sunday. Tournament director Sherman Simpson said the economy has played a role. “With the economy being the way it is, we’ve tried to stay away from Friday night games and play mostly on Saturday and Sunday to help with travel expenses,” Simpson said.
On B2 Governor’s Cup schedule Forty-one teams have signed up for the first weekend of the tournament and the deadline for registration for next weekend is Tuesday. For next weekend’s games, 30 teams have committed and more will likely register before the deadline. Odd-numbered age groups from 5 to 13 will play next weekend. This weekend is for the even-numbered age groups, and some teams will play both weekends.
“Our younger age groups didn’t make as well as in years past,” Simpson said. “In years past, in the 12-yearolds, we had to turn teams away. The 6s and the 8s are small this year.” One classification lacking in teams is the 14-yearolds’ bracket, which only has three. Simpson is hoping to get a late call from another team to fill it out. If that doesn’t happen, the three teams will play an abbreviated tournament. There are some bright spots. The 10- and 12-year-olds’ divisions were filled to capacity after a slow start leading up to this week. The 16-year-olds’ bracket,
which normally has around six teams, swelled to eight for this year’s tournament. “Eight teams is very large for them,” Simpson said. Registration is still ongoing for next weekend’s tournament and Simpson is hopeful the numbers will increase as the weekend looms closer. “I think with there being another week, it gives teams a little more time,” Simpson said. “A lot of these allstar teams are last-minute because they want to ensure they have enough kids to play.” One key that will help the tournament is the hot and dry forecast. Temperatures in the triple digits are forecast for Saturday and

Alabama teen shoots a 57
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Bobby Wyatt shot a 57 at the Alabama Boys State Junior Championship. The University of Alabama-bound teen, who turns 18 this weekend, had 12 birdies, an eagle and five pars Wednesday on the par-71, 6,628-yard course at the Country Club of Mobile. His birdie putt hung on the lip on the 18th green and he had to settle for par. Wyatt needed 23 putts total and shot a 9-under 26 on the front nine. The previous low round in the State Junior was 61 by Glenn Northcutt in 2004 on a par-70 layout which measured just over 5,000 yards. Wyatt has won the state’s junior championship the past three years. Ryo Ishikawa’s 58 in the final round of The Crowns tournament on the Japan Tour on May 2 is the lowest score on a major tour. Wyatt’s score was five strokes better than his previous career-low, set in a tournament in Louisiana. “It was unbelievable,” he said. “I got off to a fast start with birdies on my first two holes, then was 3-under after four and it kept going from there.”

Sunday, and the water-filled coolers provided for the teams in each dugout will be much appreciated. Even if rain threatens the tournament, contingency plans to adapt the schedule and the help of city maintenance crews for the fields will ensure the show goes on. “Before, we had the Friday night games and that gave us a bit of a cushion to cover rainouts. But if we have to, we can start a little earlier on Sunday,” Simpson said. “(Vicksburg parks and recreation director) Joe Graves assured us that city crews will be available throughout the weekend and the job they’ve done so far has been tremendous.”

Heyward’s steal sparks Braves to win mlb
By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — When Braves rookie Jason Heyward swiped home on the front end of a double steal with Brian McCann in the first inning of a 3-1 victory over the Nationals on Wednesday night, the event was so rare, so made-up-on-the-spot, no one involved quite knew what to make of it. “You’re not going to see a lot of it,” Heyward said. How right he was: Atlanta hadn’t stolen home in a decade. McCann, who got to second base after escaping a rundown, didn’t even realize he was marked down for a stolen base.
On B3 MLB roundup “We got lucky,” Atlanta manager Bobby Cox said. “That wasn’t scripted. Can’t take credit for that one.” That was part of a two-run first for Atlanta, and Tim Hudson shut down Washington the way he almost always does, helping the NL East-leading Braves beat the last-place Nationals. Hudson (11-5) allowed one run in 7 2/3 innings, improving to 10-1 with a 1.49 ERA for his career against the Nationals
franchise. “Everything he had was working,” said Willie Harris, 0-for-3 with three strikeouts against Hudson. “He had everything tonight — sinker, changeup, cutter.” Livan Hernandez (7-7) gave up three runs in 4 1/3 innings, his shortest outing of 2010. Chipper Jones drove in two runs, and Martin Prado had three hits for Atlanta, which had lost four of its previous six games. Already leading Wednesday on Jones’ sacrifice fly, the Braves went ahead 2-0 on Heyward’s rare dash home. The last Braves player to steal home was Rafael Furcal on April 9, 2000, against San Francisco.
With one out and runners at the corners Wednesday, Hernandez struck out Eric Hinske. McCann broke for second base, and Nationals catcher Ivan Rodriguez’s throw easily beat him to the bag. McCann changed direction and headed back to first, winding up in a rundown. That’s when Heyward made his play, drawing a throw to the plate from first baseman Adam Dunn. Heyward was safe, while McCann took second. “We didn’t really execute it just the way we should have,” Riggleman said. “They did a great job. Heyward left at the optimum time there to make it a tough play for Adam to get a throw off.”
The Mississippi Braves are hanging around in the crowded Southern League South Division, but are finding it hard to gain any traction. Drew Anderson doubled twice, scored twice and drove in two runs, while Michael Bowman threw six shutout innings as the Huntsville Stars beat the M-Braves 6-0 on Wednesday night. Anderson scored on a single by Chris Nowak in the second inning, then drew a basesloaded walk in the third to give Huntsville a 2-0 lead. Nowak drove in another run in the fifth with a sacrifice fly, sparking a three-run rally that blew the game open. Mauro Gomez went 2-for-3 for the M-Braves, but the rest of the team managed only two hits. Bowman (8-8) walked four and struck out two in his six-inning stint, then two relievers finished the shutout. It was the third straight loss for the M-Braves, and fifth in sixth games. They fell to 15-17 in the second half and are in fourth place, yet remain 3 1/2 games back of Mobile in a division where no one has been able to pull away. The M-Braves have four more games in Huntsville before returning home to play Mobile in a four-game series Aug. 2-6.
Ole Miss’ non-conference schedule is rather weak Just looking at Ole Miss’ non-conference schedule, one thing sticks out like teetotaler at Mardi Gras. It’s soft. Softer than Charmin, and that’s an insult to Charmin. Mississippi State’s isn’t much better, but at least the Bulldogs will face Heisman candidate Case Keenum and the Houston Cougars, who are favorites to win Conference USA. That can’t be said about any of the patsies scheduled by the rebuilding Rebels. Once, the SEC loaded up on cupcakes. But now, each team in the SEC has at least one Bowl Championship Series conference opponent on its schedule — all except Ole Miss and Mississippi State, which played ACC champion Georgia Tech last

season. Alabama will host Big Ten contender Penn State. LSU faces ACC favorite North Carolina in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Classic for one heck of an opener. Florida will play in-state Big East foe South Florida. Georgia travels to Colorado of the Big 12. Vanderbilt plays its egghead school doppelganger in the Big Ten, Northwestern, and ACC contender Wake Forest.
Clemson, likely the ACC’s best team, travels to Auburn and will play in-state archrival South Carolina. Tennessee hosts Pac-10 favorite Oregon in Week 2. In contrast, the Rebels will feast on a home-heavy schedule that is thinner than Calista Flockhart’s waistline, much as they did last season. Jacksonville State opens the schedule and while they are a good Football Championship Subdivision team, they’re still a FCS team and an easy victory. Then there’s Tulane in the Superdome, a nugget thrown the way of Ole Miss alumni in the Crescent City. Tulane? What, St. Mary’s School for Girls was playing a game that week? Once upon a time, Tulane was decent in football. Of course, that was
back when Tommy Bowden was running the show, Shaun King was throwing passes and Rich Rodriguez was calling plays. Now, the Green Wave are lucky to win three games a year and they should move down to FCS anyway. Fresno State isn’t a bad program, but isn’t exactly great either. The Bulldogs finished 8-5 last year and went 6-2 in the Western Athletic Conference. They represent the highwater mark of the Rebels’ non-conference slate. Then the Rebels close the non-conference slate with Louisiana-Lafayette, a team that has played in two bowls in 108 years of playing football. What, was LouisianaMonroe busy that week? Maybe it’s tough for Ole
Miss to get any marquee opponents, especially after two great seasons and two Cotton Bowl victories. A lot of it can be blamed on the Ed Orgeron regime, which put together the past few schedules. And it does get tougher in the next two years, when Boise State and Texas will come to Oxford. But at some point, the Rebels are going to have to face the facts. Loading up on cream puffs is not the way to build a contender for conference and national championships.

mlb Tigers get Peralta from Cleveland ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The banged-up Detroit Tigers acquired third baseman Jhonny Peralta from the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday for minor league left-hander Giovanni Soto. Detroit also received cash considerations in the trade. Peralta will fill-in for Brandon Inge, the Tigers’ injured third baseman. Detroit general manager Dave Dombrowski said Inge (broken left hand) and second baseman Carlos Guillen (strained right calf) could return in the next two weeks. Outfielder Magglio Ordonez (broken right ankle) is expected to be out six to eight weeks. Peralta, who might join the Tigers for today’s game at Tampa Bay, was in the lineup for Cleveland’s game against the New York Yankees on Wednesday, but was pulled around 6 p.m. He’s batting .246 with seven homers and 43 RBIs in 91 games.
NFL Jets sign Brunell to two-year contract NEW YORK — The Jets have signed veteran quarterback Mark Brunell, who backed up Drew Brees last season for the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints, to a two-year contract. The move Wednesday had been expected for several months as New York sought an experienced quarterback to back up Mark Sanchez. The Jets couldn’t sign Brunell until free agency restrictions were lifted last week. Brunell, 39, played the last two years in New Orleans and the previous four with Washington after nine years with Jacksonville. The Jets had Kellen Clemens, Erik Ainge and Kevin O’Connell as backups last year, and at least one will likely be cut before training camp.
NASCAR Gateway Raceway off Nationwide slate MADISON, Ill. — The owner of Gateway International Raceway has notified NASCAR that it will not seek to hold Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series races next year. Dover Motorsports Inc. said in a release Wednesday that it was evaluating options for the track including a possible sale. Gateway general manager Terry Harmeson said the decision was made after several years of trying to develop a market for the events. A power failure near the track earlier this month forced Gateway to hold Nationwide and Camping World races on the same day. Attendance was spotty for that doubleheader, especially the truck race. Gateway has another Nationwide race this year set for Oct. 23, with Danica Patrick among the drivers expected to compete.

Former NBA star Wright believed dead Pujols lifts Cardinals Police sources say body is that of Oxford native over Mets in 13th MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Relatives and friends of Lorenzen Wright gathered Wednesday and grieved for the former NBA player who has been missing for 10 days, as police investigated the discovery of a man’s body outside of Memphis. Wright’s uncle, Curtis Wright, told The Associated Press that police called the player’s father, Herb Wright, Wednesday afternoon with the news he had died. Sgt. Alyssa Macon-Moore of the Memphis Police Department wrote in an e-mail to the AP that police were investigating the death of an unidentified man beside a wooded area about 15 miles south of downtown Memphis. Asked if the man was Wright, she wrote they could not confirm the victim’s identity Wednesday night. The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported today, however, that two law enforcement sources had confirmed the body is that of Wright. The family issued a statement through a cousin of Lorenzen Wright, Camella Logan: “Lorenzen’s family has come together to mourn his loss and honor his legacy. We appreciate your thoughts, prayers and condolences as they are comforting at this very difficult time. Additionally, we ask that you please respect our privacy as we try to cope with his sudden loss.” Wright’s mother, Deborah Marion, arrived at the scene Wednesday night with a handful of family members. She crossed the crime scene tape and tried to talk to police when she was told to move back. She sat in a TV van before returning to the tape. Two officers then let her through.

His family filed a missing person report July 22. The Commercial Appeal reported that a 911 call was received from his cellphone on July 19. A garbled voice, followed by 10 gunshots,

were heard. Wright played 13 years in the NBA for the Los Angeles Clippers, Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies, Sacramento Kings and most recently the Cleveland Cavaliers with 17 games in the 2008-09 season. Wright left the University of Memphis early for the NBA, and the Clippers made him a lottery pick with the No. 7 selection overall. The Oxford native averaged 8 points and 6.4 rebounds in 778 career games. By nightfall, nearly 200 people had visited the road blocked off by police while TV news helicopters showed investigators scouring the grounds for evidence. Police brought in a mobile command center that further blocked off the scene.
McCluster signs with the Chiefs KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Chiefs have signed both of their second-round draft picks, wide receiver Dexter McCluster and defensive back Javier Arenas. However, as of Wednesday night the Chiefs still hadn’t signed first-round selection Eric Berry, a safety from Tennessee who is expected to become an instant starter. Terms of the contracts for McCluster and Arenas weren’t released. The 5-foot-8, 170-pound McCluster caught 130 passes for 1,703 yards and seven touchdowns in a standout career at Ole Miss. In 2009 he became the first player in Southeastern Conference history to have 1,000 yards rushing and 500 receiving in the same season. Arenas had 154 tackles and six interceptions in 52 games for Alabama. The Chiefs also signed tight end Leroy Banks, who was awarded to Kansas City via a waiver claim. Banks entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with Atlanta and played 23 games in two seasons at Southern Miss, catching 34 passes for 462 yards and four touchdowns.
Chargers sign Gates to big contract SAN DIEGO — Antonio Gates has caught plenty of big passes for the San Diego Chargers, and on Wednesday he hauled in the biggest contract ever given to an NFL tight end. Gates agreed to a $36.175 million, five-year contract extension, with $20.4 million guaranteed, according to a person familiar with the deal, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the figures weren’t released. The deal averages $7.235 million per season from 2011-15. A college basketball star at Kent State, Gates blossomed from a rookie free agent in 2003 to a superstar who is a
Former NBA star Penny Hardaway, who played at Memphis two years before Wright, said he heard the news from a friend and went to the scene near where the body was found. “I cried. The emotions hit me immediately. It’s just sad because we lost a good person and a brother,” Hardaway said. Elliot Perry, another friend and former Memphis player, also was at the scene. Wendy Wilson, who once worked as Wright’s personal assistant, also was there and said Wright often used the road police had cordoned off as a shortcut to his mother’s house. “He was a good person. He did not deserve to die this way. God is not pleased with this,” Wilson said.
NEW YORK (AP) — Albert Pujols drove in the go-ahead run with two outs in the 13th inning, and the St. Louis Cardinals survived a frantic comeback to beat the New York Mets 8-7 on Wednesday night. Matt Holliday hit a tworun homer and finished with three RBIs, and pitcher Jaime Garcia also drove in two runs for the Cardinals, who scored six times off Mets ace Johan Santana in the first inning only to watch their bullpen let the lead slip away. The Mets scored four times in the eighth to tie the game, and that’s where it stood when Pedro Feliciano (2-6) plunked Skip Schumaker and walked Felipe Lopez with one out in the 13th. Jon Jay hit into a fielder’s choice, putting runners on the corners, and manager Jerry Manuel elected to pitch to Pujols rather than walk the bases loaded. His grounder through the left side brought in Schumaker with the go-ahead run. Mike MacDougal (1-0) worked the 12th inning to earn the win, with Ryan Franklin
MLB getting through the 13th for his 19th save. The game lasted 4 hours, 32 minutes, which was still pretty snappy compared to the last time Santana and Garcia hooked up, on April 17 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. The two pitchers dueled over seven scoreless innings, and both were long gone by the time New York finally won 2-1 in 20 innings. That game lasted 6 hours, 53 minutes. In other National League games Wednesday, it was Houston 8, the Chicago Cubs 1; Cincinnati 10, Milwaukee 2; Philadelphia 7, Arizona 1; Atlanta 3, Washington 1; San Francisco 10, Florida 9 in 10 innings; Pittsburgh 6, Colorado 2; and San Diego 6, the Los Angeles Dodgers 1.

Saints sign QB, third-round pick NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Saints have signed third-round draft pick Jimmy Graham. The team announced the four-year deal on Wednesday, but did not release any terms. Graham, a tight end who played one season of football and four of baseketball at the
University of Miami, is the fifth of the Saints’ 2010 draft picks to sign with the team. New Orleans also agreed to terms with free agent quarterback Patrick Ramsey on a one-year contract. Ramsey, who is entering his ninth NFL season, is a former first-round selection of the Washington Redskins in 2002. Ramsey has played in 37 career games with 24 starts in stints with Washington, the New York Jets, Denver, Tennessee and Detroit. Also Wednesday, the Saints announced they will meet President Barack Obama in a White House ceremony on Aug. 9. The Saints will be honored for winning Super Bowl XLIV in February.

Kanye West performs for Facebook With the release of a new album approaching, Kanye West is making sure he’s up to date with the social networking sites. He joined Twitter Wednesday, one day after going to the offices of Facebook, in Palo Alto, Calif., to preview some of his new material. Videos of him rapping a cappella while standing on a conference table have been posted on Kanye YouTube. On his website afterward, West posted West a letter to Facebook, thanking the staff for their support: “Your energy was a gift so electric, so genuine, that it really helped me give my best.” An e-mail request for comment from Facebook was not immediately returned. West’s new as-of-yet untitled album is expected to be released Sept. 14.
No charges against other Jackson docs State investigators probing the death of Michael Jackson have decided not to file charges against seven doctors who treated him, authorities said Wednesday. The doctors were part of an investigation by state Attorney General Jerry Brown’s Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement, spokeswoman Christine Gasparac said. One doctor whose name was not released has been referred to the California Medical Board for prescribing drugs to a Jackson alias, she said. Candis Cohen, a board spokesman, declined to confirm the action, saying complaints and investigations were not public record. Jackson’s personal doctor, Conrad Murray, has pleaded not guilty to felony involuntary manslaughter in the singer’s death. Authorities say Murray provided Jackson with a mix of sedatives, including a powerful anesthetic that killed him. Murray was not among the seven doctors involved in the state investigation. Los Angeles police who investigated the death had asked state and federal investigators to look into the prescribing practices of doctors who previously treated the 50-year-old pop star. The federal Drug Enforcement Agency has also stopped investigating the actions of any other Jackson doctors, agency spokeswoman Sarah Pullen said. The state investigation included the search of a prescription drug database that tracks doctors who prescribe controlled substances. The database also monitors the quantity and recipients of those drugs.

It’s a breakthrough for Susan Lucci. No, not a second Emmy. She has a book deal. It Books said Wednesday that the longtime star of “All My Children” has a memoir coming out next year. Her book is currently untitled. It will cover her role as Erica Kane on the daytime soap and her years as a stage performer. Of course, she’ll also talk about snagging an Emmy in 1999 after years of falling short. It Books is an imprint of HarperCollins.

Bear turns Goldilocks tale on its head A black bear walked into a New Hampshire house through an open door, ate two pears and a bunch of grapes, took a drink from the family fishbowl and grabbed a stuffed bear on its way out the door. Mary Beth Parkinson said the bear apparently took advantage of the open outside door to get into her kitchen Tuesday in Laconia, about 20 miles north of Concord. She thinks the garage door going up scared the bear enough that it fled the house. She said she arrived in time to save the fish. Parkinson said her 6- and 9-year-old boys made sure the doors were locked before they went to bed.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his personal secretary Grace Tully
National Archives reveals $10 The BEST donated FDR papers you'll ever spend! WASHINGTON (AP) — A handwritten letter from fascist Italian dictator Benito Mussolini congratulating President Franklin D. Roosevelt on his inauguration, and a note from a woman who had a brief affair with Roosevelt were shown to the public for the first time Wednesday at the National Archives. The 5,000 documents and gifts collected by Roosevelt’s secretaries include a note from Lucy Mercer Rutherfurd, who had an affair with Roosevelt that forever changed his marriage to Eleanor Roosevelt when she discovered the infidelity in 1918. Rutherfurd wrote Roosevelt’s personal secretary Grace Tully a week before his death in 1945 to arrange a visit with a portrait painter and photographer. The “Unfinished Portrait” was in progress when he collapsed and died. The meetings with Rutherfurd were kept secret from Eleanor Roosevelt until after her husband’s death, and the letter is evidence Tully was involved in communications between Rutherfurd and Roosevelt. The 14 boxes of items had been sealed with duct tape for years, and were considered the last great privatelyheld collection of papers for Roosevelt’s presidential library in Hyde Park, N.Y. Anne Roosevelt, the president’s granddaughter, said Tully and another personal secretary Marguerite “Missy” LeHand were devoted to Roosevelt. “Their understanding of what to save and what to collect was important,” she said. “We are grateful to them for being pack rats.” It took an act of Congress to get the documents to the National Archives, though, after an ownership dispute. The Sun-Times Media Group Inc., formerly Hollinger International Inc., bought the collection in 2001 for $8 million. In 2004, Hollinger put the items for sale at Christie’s auction house, but the National

Archives claimed ownership to some of the times, saying they were presidential materials. The company eventually agreed to donate the items in exchange for a tax credit. A 2009 bankruptcy filing by the Sun-Times Media Group could have scuttled the whole deal, said Roosevelt library director Cynthia Koch. The multimillion-dollar collection could have been divided up and sold off. New York Sen. Charles Schumer and Rep. Louise Slaughter sponsored bills to smooth the way for the donation with a full tax deduction. Schumer said it will ensure the papers are preserved. “It has a magical feeling to hold a paper that Roosevelt himself had and to put yourself in his place as he made decisions about some of the most vexing problems our country ever faced,” he said. The donation became official June 30 after President Barack Obama signed the bill into law. In the past month, archivist Robert Clark has sorted and organized about a third of the collection.

Loud music ruins wedding reception for many Dear Abby: “Lost My Appetite in South Carolina” (June 1) walked out of a wedding reception after waiting for a delayed dinner and suffering through the DJ’s “loud, deafening rock ’n’ roll music.” You chided the writer and suggested he should have asked the hosts to lower the volume somewhat. It’s my experience this doesn’t work. Insanely loud music is part of the contemporary American culture. I have walked out of at least two wedding receptions because of loud music. A wedding reception is supposed to be an event to enjoy and talk to people. Something is amiss when people are invited to a wedding and become a captive audience, forced to put up with intolerable conditions. Walking out is a reasonable response. — Paul in Chesterfield, Mo. Dear Paul: It was impossible to turn a deaf ear to the “volume” of letters I received supporting “Lost” for the reasons you expressed. Read on: Dear Abby: Spoiled brides

and loopy parents treat weddings like Broadway productions. The guests are just extras in the extravaganza. If people have been invited for dinner and it isn’t being served, they are justified in leaving. I went to a wedding and was shocked to learn dinner wouldn’t be served until five hours after the reception began because “the bride preferred to dance on an empty stomach.” My husband and I left our gift and took our empty stomachs to a restaurant. We heard later that the mother of the bride was angry because more than a dozen guests also left before dinner, while the bride danced merrily on. — J.G. in Los Angeles Dear Abby: You missed
BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — You’re not likely to have much patience with others, so take care that you don’t respond in an unseemly manner should someone challenge your ideas or position. Keep your cool. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — This is not likely to be one of your better days financially. It will be bad enough if you lose money because of someone else, but it’ll be just plain dumb to get yourself in trouble. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Although you usually are an optimistic person, every once in a while your outlook can be a bit on the dark side. If you get up on the wrong side of the bed, this might be the case. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Avoid getting in way over your head due to trying to do more than your time or talents permit. Everything has its limitations, so schedule your agenda carefully and wisely. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Before accepting a social invitation, you had better make certain the group doesn’t include someone you’d have a difficult time being around. You would end up being miserable in that situation. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — There are times when you can see nothing but the dark side of things. Don’t misuse your imagination by worrying about things that are not likely to happen. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Rather than ask what might be wrong with something that is important to you, look for an accurate assessment. Others may think they have to come up with something bad, even if they don’t see anything. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — This can be a precarious day for you when it comes to your financial affairs if you handle your assets poorly. Be especially diligent about keeping your purchasing from getting out of hand. Aries (March 21-April 19) — It might be impossible for you to move forward with your plans because of someone who is fearful that what you do might subvert his/her schemes, and is thusly trying to stop you first. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Not attending to your duties or responsibilities in a timely fashion will put you so far behind that it will be impossible for you to get caught up. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Don’t try to manage things for others when you can’t even do anything for yourself. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — If you find it necessary to take care of something significant, be prepared to put forth a great deal of fortitude and determination.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I realize that you write for teens, but even though I’m in my 80s, I am a regular reader of your column. I’m especially pleased when you encourage your young readers to stop smoking or, better yet, never to start. I started smoking in my teens, and although I tried to quit several times, it took my older brother’s death from lung cancer to get me to quit once and for all. Several years after I quit, my younger sister, who also smoked, died of lung cancer as well. The deaths of my siblings traumatized me, but having to watch the suffering they endured added to my misery. Both were ill for several years and they suffered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I hope my letter will encourage your young readers to stay away from tobacco. It’s a nasty and possibly deadly habit. — Agnes, Little Rock, Ark. Agnes: Thanks so much for caring about our young readers. Your message will encourage many of them to stay away from that highly addictive, and all too often, lethal substance. Dr. Wallace: I’m 15 and still not allowed to wear any type of makeup whatsoever. I’m sure I’m the only 15-year-old girl in the state of California who can’t wear a little eye shadow or lip gloss. When I ask my mom about why I can’t wear makeup, all she says is, “Because I said so.” Is there anything wrong with wearing makeup if it is applied properly and not overdone? Also, why do you think my mom always says no when I bring up the subject? — Tammy, Porterville, Calif. Tammy: Wearing makeup signals that one is no longer a child and can be considered a young lady. Many parents are reluctant to permit makeup use because they can’t accept the fact that their daughters are growing up. I see nothing wrong with someone your age using makeup in moderation, for practical reasons: to blend skin tones, cover blemishes or highlight attractive features. But if the prime reason to use makeup is to look older and bolder — then wait a little longer! • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.
an opportunity to point out to your readers that special dinners are a time for family, friends and new acquaintances to renew, rekindle and update their lives and relationships. It might be wise for future wedding planners to instruct the DJ or band to play soft music — or none at all — during dinnertime. Remember, the “bash” goes on after dinner and lasts for hours. — Cathy Lee in Grosse Point Farms, Mich. Dear Abby: That letter made me furious! Because of the 30 extra guests we expected, we rented a larger room, hired an extra waiter and bartender and set up additional tables. Because some guests didn’t show up and others left before the meal, we had couples left sitting alone at their tables. The money we could have saved if some of those ungrateful people had simply declined in the RSVP could have gone to the newlyweds to start their household. Whatever happened to courtesy and good manners? — Disap-
pointed Mother in Texas Dear Abby: The comfort of one’s guests must be considered in planning an event. I think it’s perfectly acceptable for a guest to leave before dinner, stating, “I’m sorry, but the music has become too loud for me to stay.” It is extremely rude of hosts to expect guests to tolerate dangerous, uncomfortable noise levels. — Values My Hearing in N.Y. Dear Abby: The “rule” that guests must eat dinner because it was paid for is right up there with the assumption that the price of the gift must be equal to the guests’ share of the cost of the reception. Utter nonsense! It costs the same whether they eat while suffering from the deafening noise or discreetly make an escape. — Common Sense in Illinois

Surgery is treatment for inguinal hernia Dear Dr. Gott: I read your column daily but have never seen you comment on an inguinal hernia. Can you address it? I am in my late 70s and suddenly have one. It is not incarcerated, and I am wondering if I need surgery. If so, can it be done with local anesthesia? Dear Reader: An inguinal hernia occurs when a portion of the small intestine or internal fat protrudes through a weakened area in the lower abdominal muscles. This occurs on either side of the groin area between the abdomen and thigh, resulting in a bulge. Inguinal hernias are five times more common in males than in females and account for 75 percent of all hernias, of which there are several kinds. An inguinal hernia can occur at any time from infancy to adulthood. There are two types of inguinal hernia — direct and indirect. A direct hernia is caused by degeneration of connective tissue of the abdominal muscles, common in older people. This type develops gradually because of continuous stress on the muscles involved. Factors include weight gain, lifting heavy objects, muscle strain, chronic cough and straining from constipation. Indirect hernias are congenital and much more common in males because of the way a male develops in the womb. Indirect inguinal hernias can occur in females as well; however, the condition is the result of a weakened area in the abdominal wall, not because of a weakened area of the inguinal canal. Symptoms of either type include a bulge, pain, burning or discomfort — especially when lifting or otherwise straining — and weakness or pressure in the groin. Incarcerated hernias are so named because the bulge that protrudes is swollen and cannot be massaged back into the abdomen. When this occurs, the blood supply to that area may become compromised. Symptoms can include fever, increasing pain, tenderness, redness and an elevation in the patient’s heart rate. Treatment for adults is surgery accomplished either through laparoscopy or open repair. The laparoscopic approach uses general anesthesia. Incisions are made in the lower abdomen. A thin tube with a video camera is then attached. The camera allows the area to be viewed on a monitor, and repairs are made using synthetic mesh. This procedure affords shorter recovery time but cannot be used on large hernias or on patients who may have had prior pelvic surgery. Open repair requires anesthesia into the abdomen or spine to numb the area. An incision is made in the groin, the hernia is repositioned into the abdomen, and the abdominal wall is reinforced with sutures. The area is then strengthened with synthetic mesh or

screen in a procedure known as herniorrhaphy. Post-surgical conditions can include wound infection, bleeding, pain at the site of the scar and injury to internal organs. Recurrence can occur. Generally speaking, however, hernia repair using either method is safe and most often uncomplicated.

A void Abbreviations A few accepted and recognizable abbreviations are ok, but an ad full of them just confuses the reader A good rule of thumb is â€œSpell it out or leave it outâ€?.
B e Available List your telephone number so that the potential buyer will know how to contact you. State the best hours to call so theyâ€™ll know when they can reach you.
C onsider Your Readers Put yourself in the readerâ€™s place. If you were considering buying this item, what would you want to know about it? Give the itemâ€™s age, condition, size, color, brand name and any other important information needed to describe it completely & accurately.
D onâ€™t Exaggerate Misleading information may bring potential buyers to your home but it will not help you make the sale. Youâ€™ll lose the prospectâ€™s trust and faith as well at the sale.
