Ex-city worker says guilty to embezzlement Barry Graham was TV23 boss By Steve Sanoski ssanoski@vicksburgpost.com Former TV23 Director Thomas “Barry” Graham was placed on five years of probation, fined $1,500 and ordered to pay approximately $30,000 in restitution to the city and state after pleading guilty Thursday afternoon to a felony embezzlement charge. Accompanied by his attorney, Mack Varner, Graham did not address the court other than by replying “yes, sir,” and “no, sir,” to a series of questions from Circuit Judge M. James Chaney about his plea and the rights he was waiving, specifically the right to later change his admission and have a jury trial. Following the hearing, Graham declined comment as he quietly walked out of the courthouse with Varner. “The misuse of public funds won’t be tolerated,” Mayor Paul Winfield said as he exited the hearing. “That was proven here today.” Winfield’s office contacted state officials in September about the apparent misuse of funds in the TV23 department in September, which triggered a full investigation. On Sept. 30, police and a state auditor’s office investigator seized speakers, amplifiers, microphones, a lighting system and CDs

rience,” Dent explained. “The younger officer also has an opportunity to teach the older officer a little bit about the new techniques being taught at the academy and the lingo of the younger generation. So, it’s really beneficial for both officers.” The ranks of the department have risen to 79 since Police Chief Walter Armstrong took the reins a year ago, up from about 65. While about a half dozen experienced officers have

School buses will start rolling for Vicksburg Warren School District students in six days and school officials are scrambling to be ready. Meeting Thursday night, the district’s Board of Trustees approved the hiring of more than 25 teachers and teacher assistants, administrators, coaches and other employees. They also were assured that construction at Warrenton Elementary School, where contractors were working to pave driveway and parking areas, would be manageable as its 400 students return the first day. Interim Superintendent Donald Oakes said the schools would be ready. “Yes, there is a lot to get done, but when the kids show up for school on the first day, they will be ready for them,” he said. Oakes stressed that parents, especially of younger students starting school for the first time, need to be involved. “We just encourage parents, between now and Thursday, to go to the schools and register their children,” he said. “That helps us plan for when they come in.” Bus schedules were still being readied today. Specific information about bus assignments can be obtained by calling the district’s transportation department at 601636-1478. Oakes told trustees that the district runs 170 bus routes, with some of its 117 drivers responsible for more than one route. Many of the schools are preparing for student orientations to be held next week, though Vicksburg High School held its session for incoming students Thursday evening. Principal Derrick Reed said attendance was better than it has been in many years. “We’re excited,” he said this morning. “We’re looking forward to getting started, and really encouraged by how many parents and students we had come out last night.” District officials were hoping to have remaining orientation schedules posted today on the district’s website, http://www.vwsd.k12. ms.us. Students’ class schedules have been completed, except for last-minute conflicts to be resolved, Oakes told the board. Teachers will get their class lists as they report for mandatory meetings next week. Students will get their

He was placed on unpaid leave from his city duties five days later. Graham, 56, was never arrested, formally charged or indicted. Instead, he admitted guilt based on information contained in the investigation report by the auditor. Had he been indicted and convicted by a jury, Graham faced up to 10

years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Chaney did order a 10-year prison sentence for Graham, but with no time to be served. Representatives of the City of Vicksburg and the auditor’s office told the judge they agreed to the punishment recommended by District Attorney Ricky Smith. Graham is to pay the city

In addition, Chaney ordered him to pay $4,455 to the city for interest on the stolen items. With court costs and the cost of the investigation factored in, total restitution owed is $30,882.37. Chaney ordered Graham

By Danny Barrett Jr. dbarrett@vicksburgpost.com How a tax protest case between Riverwalk Casino and Warren County is resolved will determine whether the county has slightly more or slightly less revenue in the coming year. A first draft of the county’s 2010-11 budget shows total spending at almost the same level as this year — $15 million — with $45,436 more in property taxes, fees, fines and other revenue. That figure would dip by $61,242 if the latest numbers exchanged in the casino’s tax appeal favor Riverwalk, County Administrator John Smith told supervisors during budget talks Thursday.

Two-year-old Nash Morgan, the son of Warren Central High School head football coach Josh Morgan and his wife, Brady, models a helmet as he hangs out on the field with players during a team photo session Thursday afternoon. The team practiced daily this week. Nash is from a family of football players and coaches. His grandfather, Robert Morgan, has coached at Warren Central for 40 years, and Josh played in the 1990s, along with his brothers, before returning to coach five years ago.

The nature of fighting crime hasn’t changed much in the nine years since newly installed Deputy Chief Mitchell Dent was last on the Vicksburg force. What has changed, Dent said, is the age of the average crimefighter. “Our department is now a very young department,” Dent said as guest speaker of the Port City Kiwanis Club Thursday morning, “but we’re making sure that our young officers have the adequate training to become seasoned officers in the field.” Dent, who was chief until months before leaving the department in 2001, said the department has brought back a field training period for cops fresh out of the academy, during which the rookies ride along with experienced officers for a few months before being allowed to patrol on their own. “The field training officer evaluates what the new officer has learned in the academy and gives them the benefit of their expe-

A 2006 Chevrolet Silverado is loaded onto a tow truck while westbound traffic on Interstate 20 backs up Thursday afternoon. Vicksburg police Officer Burt Ryan said Kayla Lyons, 34, 405 Logue Circle, Vicksburg, lost control of the Silverado on the on-ramp from U.S. 61 North and veered into the I-20 path of a westbound 18-wheeler driven by Raymond Owens, 41, 1360 Texas 7 West, Crockett, Texas, and hit a tree in the median. Owens was not injured, and

Three Vicksburg men were charged Thursday in an auto burglary reported Wednesday in the 1300 block of Drummond Street. Eddie Lee Johnson, 18, 3011 Green St., was arrested by Vicksburg police at National and Second streets immediately after the burglary and formally charged at 8 the next morning, police Lt. Bobby Stewart said. Taree Johnson, 19, 921 Polk St., and Tevin Turner, 18, 1216 Prospect St., were arrested at 2:10 p.m. at their homes, Stewart said. The three are accused of taking Walkie Talkie radios and a phone charger from a 2007 Pontiac Vibe. The statements of several witnesses led police to the three, Stewart said. Taree Johnson and Turner were being held at the Warren County Jail, Turner on a $10,000 bond, and Johnson, on a $5,000 bond. Eddie Johnson was being held at the Issaquena County Jail on a $5,000 bond. Fourteen auto burglaries were reported in Vicksburg and Warren County Wednesday and Thursday. Police do not believe the Drummond burglary is related to the others, Stewart said.

Robbery suspect ID’d, sought after attack A Vicksburg man described by the victim of a physical attack and robbery was being sought by city police this morning. Willie Gladwell, 39 and described as white, 6-feet tall and about 200 pounds, was accused by the 76-yearold victim of breaking into his home in the 3600 block of Washington Street at 9:37 Thursday night, hitting him with a 2-by-4 and stealing

Thompson was treated and released from the medical center, hospital spokesman Leigh White said.

4 mental facilities asked to set closure plans JACKSON (AP) — The Mississippi Department of Mental Health has asked four facilities to develop contingency closing plans by the end of August in case the Legislature doesn’t provide adequate funding in the next fiscal year.

The facilities are North Mississippi State Hospital in Tupelo, South Mississippi State Hospital in Purvis, Mississippi Adolescent Center in Brookhaven and Central Mississippi Residential Center in Newton. MDMH spokesman Wendy

Bailey said that the four were singled out because they receive the majority of their money from legislative appropriations, rather than from grant funds or federal funds. Bailey said the plans would include how the facilities would systematically release

patients and employees and shut down equipment, buildings and services. Bailey said the plan does not mean that the facilities will close, only that it could shut down if the Legislature doesn’t provide the funding for the fiscal year staring July 1, 2011.

Prof’s death blamed on intentional overdose A University of Louisiana at Monroe dean of the pharmacy found dead in April in a Vicksburg motel room died of an intentional prescription drug overdose, Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey ruled. “It was not an accidental overdose,” said Huskey of the death of 45-year-old Greg Leader, who had been in the position since March. Leader checked into the Riverwalk Casino Hotel on Warrenton Road alone on April 19. A co-worker told Vicksburg police that Leader had not been to work, and Monroe investigators discovered he could have been in Vicksburg, Sgt. Sandra Williams said in April. He had been an associate dean of the school since 2004. Authorities got a key and went into Leader’s room after investigation determined he had checked in, Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said in April. Leader was survived by his wife, Barbara Leader, of Monroe, La.

Culkin Volunteer Fire Chief Jerry Briggs is covered in foam while moving away from fighting a blaze at 5236 Oak Ridge Road this morning. The home is owned by James H. Strickland, 62, who is in the Warren County Jail after pleading guilty in June to charges of molesting a child younger than 14. No one was in the house when the fire was reported at

6:17, said Warren County Volunteer Fire Coordinator Kelly Worthy. He said the house was a total loss. Volunteers with Culkin, Northeast and Bovina fire departments responded to the fire, in which no injuries were reported. The cause of the fire remained under investigation, Worthy said.

Probe casts shadow over child support cases By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press JACKSON — Hundreds of Mississippi Department of Human Services child support cases are under review as officials investigate whether process servers lied about delivering subpoenas to order people to appear in court. The process servers worked in several counties for subcontractors of YoungWilliams Child Support Services, a Jackson company with a $23 million DHS contract to seek child support court orders. The process servers claimed they delivered papers to people who were incarcerated and even to a woman who had been dead for two years, court records show.

“It saddens me to know that we privatize a function in government and then there’s that kind of abuse,” said House Public Health Committee Chairman Steve Holland, D-Plantersville, who learned about the probe from The Associated Press. Every court order for payment handed down that involved a suspect process server is being audited, Rob Wells, president of YoungWilliams said Thursday. YoungWilliams received the lucrative contract in 2009 to reduce Mississippi’s backlog of child support cases. The impact of the allegations is unclear, but for many parents there’s a long wait from the point of contacting DHS about child support problems and

finally getting a court to order payments. DHS Executive Director Don Thompson didn’t respond to requests for comment. Documents obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request show DHS was to refer 30,000 cases to YoungWilliams under its contract. As of July 16, the company had filed 13,589 cases in Forrest, Harrison, Hinds, Jackson, Jones, Lauderdale and Madison counties. The alleged problems came to light in Jackson County Chancery Court. Last month, Chancellor Neil Harris found Guy Jernigan and two others in contempt of court for filing false affidavits and ordered them to pay $88,500 in sanctions and serve jail time until

the money was paid. Jernigan was a process server working for First Fidelity Trust Services Inc., a subcontractor of YoungWilliams. Jernigan appealed to the Mississippi Supreme Court, which has stayed Harris’ order. On Thursday, Harris filed a brief with the high court detailing his finding that Jernigan had filed dozens of questionable affidavits. Meanwhile, Hinds County Chancellor Denise Sweet Owens has ordered two process servers for a company called Pro Serve to appear in court on similar allegations. Wells said his company has terminated contracts with Pro Serve and First Fidelity. He said an investigation is ongoing.

The documents allegedly were provided to Wikileaks by PFC Bradley Manning, a U.S. Army intelligence analyst, who was arrested in May and charged with transferring the data. He is being held at a military jail in Kuwait and faces 52 years in prison. The material is a collection of raw documents, some of which has been verified by the news organizations. President Barack Obama says the contents of the documents are part of the reason a new strategy has been developed.

Among the revelations, as summarized by the Guardian: • Coalition forces have killed hundreds of civilians. • Taliban attacks have increased greatly. • “NATO commanders fear neighboring Pakistan and Iran are fueling the insurgency.” • Special Forces has a secret unit that hunts down Taliban leaders for “kill or capture.” • In a replay of how the Soviet Army was defeated in Afghanistan more than two decades ago, insurgents have acquired surface-to-air missiles to shoot down American aircraft. The information was covered up by U.S. officials. Malou Innocent, a foreign policy analyst with the Cato Institute, pointed out that, “In recent months, there has been a relentless pummeling of the mission and the campaign.” She cited the Afghan War sur-

passing the Vietnam War to become America’s longest war; increased American casualties, with more than 1,000 now killed there; the firing for insubordination of the war’s commander, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, by President Obama; and the increased reports of the corruption of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, whom American forces keep in power. The American effort “needs to be scaled down to a terrorism-fighting mission,” Innocent urged. “This more ambitious nation-building mission won’t succeed.” She may be right. It appears less and less promising that this current approach in Afghanistan will yield either more safety for America or will advance significantly the U.S. pursuit of al-Qaida.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler

Negotiating with Taliban sounds easy, but it isn’t WASHINGTON — The Wikileaks document download — illustrating Afghan corruption, Pakistani duplicity and Taliban toughness — revealed little that is new. But it will intensify a popular kind of desperation. A consensus is growing among foreign policy realists, skittish NATO allies and anti-war activists that the time has come to cut a deal with the Taliban. The Afghan government is hopeless; recent elections were discrediting; nation-building has failed. The only hope is to pursue not only reintegration of low- and midlevel Taliban fighters into Afghan society but reconciliation with Taliban leaders based in Pakistan. As long as these leaders end their relationship with al-Qaida — the only firm, non-negotiable red line — the Taliban could return to effective control of southern Afghanistan in a more decentralized system. Some Afghans are preparing for this prospect — particularly those who find themselves on the wrong side of the red line. “Women are living in great fear for a peace deal with the Taliban because of what it will mean for their rights,” says the manager of an Afghan woman’s shelter. In areas currently controlled by

MICHAEL

GERSON

If America were to insist on protections for the rights of women, ethnic minorities and civil society as preconditions for power sharing discussions with the Taliban, it would probably be a deal breaker.

the Taliban, schools for girls are shut down, women terrorized for working outside the home, woman politicians and activists attacked and murdered. A typical “night letter” from the Taliban reads: “We warn you to leave your job as a teacher as soon as possible otherwise we will cut the heads off your children and we shall set fire to your daughter.” An Afghan women’s rights activist recently explained to Human Rights Watch, “Every woman activist who has raised her voice in the last 10 years fears they (the Taliban) will kill us.” This debate is not only a conflict of two policy views but of two worlds. Recently, I attended a meeting of diplomats, foreign policy experts and

journalists where a diplomatic settlement with the Taliban was broadly endorsed. The participants admitted that some regrettable abuses would result. But Afghanistan, in the general view, had become a costly distraction from issues such as Iran and North Korea. Best to cut our losses and get out. Around the polished table, every participant was a welldressed, Western man, casually condemning millions of poor and powerless women to fear and slavery. Supporters of a settlement with the Taliban respond that they are just facing reality — that protecting the rights of Afghan women is desirable; it is simply not possible. In truth, they know no such thing. Those who predict defeat in Afghani-

stan significantly overlap with those who confidently predicted defeat in Iraq. Their military judgments merit some skepticism, particularly when American commanders are pursuing a new strategy in Afghanistan they believe may succeed. We should be suspicious of a realism that always amounts to defeatism. The prospect of serious negotiations with the Taliban does not seem particularly realistic. If America were to insist on protections for the rights of women, ethnic minorities and civil society as preconditions for powersharing discussions with the Taliban, it would probably be a deal breaker. As it stands, the Taliban has every reason to think that it wins by enduring. A panting desire for a hasty deal only encourages this belief. Coming to the table at this point, the Taliban would have little motivation to make concessions on the most fundamental aspects of its ideology. If the coalition does not insist on the protection of human rights as a precondition for negotiations, the whole thing gets much easier. It is always easy to end a conflict by giving in to the enemy. Reconciliation with the Taliban from a position of weakness — granting the Taliban

control over portions of the country — bears a close resemblance to surrender. No paper assurances could hide the reality that America, under military pressure from Islamist radicals, had betrayed millions of Afghan men and women into comprehensive tyranny. When asked last month about the possibility of an American settlement with the Taliban, CIA Director Leon Panetta responded: “We have seen no evidence that they are truly interested in reconciliation, where they would surrender their arms, where they would denounce al-Qaida, where they would really try to become part of that society. We’ve seen no evidence of that and very frankly, my view is that with regards to reconciliation, unless they’re convinced that the United States is going to win and that they’re going to be defeated, I think it’s very difficult to proceed with a reconciliation that’s going to be meaningful.” This is the realistic alternative: Win first, then negotiate. •

Pols not ready to announce intentions at Neshoba County Fair By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — Political junkies at the Neshoba County Fair received few clear signals this week about who’s running for which Mississippi office in 2011. They did, however, get some not-so-subtle hints from brochures scattered on the wooden benches where hundreds of people gathered to listen to stump speeches Wednesday and Thursday — and from signs stapled to wooden power poles on the fairgrounds’ dusty Founders Square. White posters with red letters touted state Sen. Billy Hewes of Gulfport for lieutenant governor. Brochures promoted Republican Dave Dennis for governor. Although Dennis, a Pass Christian businessman, said as he shook hands that he’s not ready to make a formal announcement for 2011. Bill Luckett, a Clarksdale attorney and businessman who’s gearing up to run for governor as a Democrat, sat and listened to speeches. The current governor, Republican Haley Barbour, is term-limited and can’t run again next year. He’s also coy about the possibility of running for president in 2012, telling reporters Thursday — for the umpteenth time in the past several months — that as head of the Republican Governors Association, he’s concentrating on helping the GOP win governorships in other states this year. State Treasurer Tate Reeves, a Republican widely believed to be considering a run for governor or lieutenant governor, went on stage Thursday in a golf shirt with the logo, “TATE 2011,” keeping his options open. “I’m going to announce that I’m running to be secretary

of the treasury in the President Barbour administration in 2012,” Reeves joked, eliciting chuckles from some in the audience and groans from others under the square’s tinroofed pavilion. Republican Phil Bryant, the current lieutenant governor, has made no secret that he’s running for governor next year, but he didn’t mention that Thursday. Instead, he spoke against illegal immigration and boasted that he was one of

the first in the nation to file a lawsuit seeking to block a federal health overhaul bill. “I will not stand by and let my civil liberties be violated,” Bryant said of the health lawsuit. Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, a Republican and a Vicksburg native, said he has kept promises to crack down on voting fraud and to re-negotiate leases of public lands to bring more money to the schools. He didn’t mention his political plans for 2011,

although he’s also frequently mentioned as a possible candidate for higher office. Hosemann supporters distributed hand-held fans with almost life-sized photocopies of his head. Dozens of people waved them to try to stir up a slight breeze in the muggy, 90-plus degree heat. “It’s kind of like looking in the mirror when we’re up here talking,” Hosemann deadpanned from the stage. Barbour said the entire Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians should get to vote on a proposed casino in

Jones County. Barbour has threatened to sue to block the casino, which he has described as a “slot parlor.” He also has contended that a 8-7 split among the Choctaw’s tribal council on the casino indicated there is some opposition in the tribe to taking gaming outside Neshoba County. Barbour also said he’ll be in DeSoto County today to help announce a sustainableenergy manufacturing development that will create about 350 jobs. He wouldn’t name the company. Nearly five years after Hurricane Katrina battered Mis-

sissippi, Barbour said he’s proud of the state and its people. “I believe our greatest asset is our spirit,” Barbour said.

Incoming CEO Bob Dudley to outline BP plans to help Gulf recover Ex-Coast Guard leader assures Gov. Jindal efforts will continue

Company at center of spill in Michigan cited for problems

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Incoming BP CEO Bob Dudley was set to outline his company’s long-term efforts to help the Gulf of Mexico recover from the oil spill, and will be getting help from a Clinton administration-era emergency management official. The oil giant said Dudley would be in Biloxi to announce that former Federal Emergency Management Agency head James Lee Witt will support its recovery efforts. Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the government’s oil-spill response chief, had what he called a frank and open discussion Thursday with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and coastal parish officials concerned that the Coast Guard and BP PLC will pull back from the spill response once the oil is stopped permanently. “One of the things we absolutely wanted to get today was their commitment that they’re in it for the long-term,” Jindal said. “Look, all those (federal) people in the room, with no disrespect ... they’re going to be rotated out to different

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) — A Canadian company at the center of a huge oil spill in southern Michigan has a history of pipeline problems, including an explosion and dozens of regulatory violations. Enbridge Inc. or its affiliates have been cited for 30 enforcement actions since 2002 by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, which is the U.S. Department of Transportation’s regulatory arm. In a warning letter sent Jan. 21, the agency told the company it may have violated safety codes by improperly monitoring corrosion in the pipeline responsible for the massive spill Monday in Talmadge Creek. The creek feeds into the Kalamazoo River, which eventually flows into Lake Michigan. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that more than 1 million gallons may have spilled into the waterway, but Enbrige estimates the spill at closer to 820,000 gallons. Cleanup efforts could take several

jobs. Everybody here is still going to be here dealing with this oil.” Plaquemines Parish President Bob Billy NungDudley esser said the cleanup effort is being scaled back even though oil is still showing up on the coast. “They say they are not (pulling back) but already they have canceled catering contracts, they’ve stopped production of boom at factories,” he said. “We know there’s a lot of oil out there. “It’s going to continue to come ashore, and we’re going to hold their feet to the fire to make sure they’re there until all the oil is gone out of the Gulf of Mexico before we pull all of the assets out of our parish.” Allen said federal, state and local officials will come up with a plan by next week for how to clean up any oil that might continue washing up on beaches and in wetlands.

U.S. gas stations divided over name change NEW ORLEANS (AP) — BP gas station owners across the country are divided over whether the oil giant stained by its handling of the Gulf spill should rebrand U.S. outlets as Amoco or another name as part of its effort to repair the company’s badly damaged reputation. Some who have seen their sales plunge because of protests say BP has already sought a fresh start by naming an American to replace its gaffe-prone British CEO, so why not change the name on

gas stations marquees as a further symbol of that culture shift. Others worry that a name change is a big deal that is risky given all the marketing dollars already spent building up the BP brand. They also believe a successful turnaround with the existing brand will have a bigger payoff. In the aftermath of the oil spill, some BP-branded gas stations reported sales declines of 10 percent to 40 percent from Florida to

Illinois. The BP name and greenand-yellow sunflower logo took over after BP merged with Amoco in the late 1990s, replacing the Amoco name and its blue-and-red torch inside an oval logo. There is precedent for such a drastic move to return to the Amoco name or to go with a new name. Think AirTran after the ValuJet crash and Xe Services after the killing of civilians by Blackwater Worldwide guards in Iraq.

IT PAYS TO SWITCH.

weeks, possibly two months, officials said. The EPA says the oil had traveled 25 miles downstream, but state officials estimate it has traveled 35 miles. Gov. Jennifer Granholm warned of a “tragedy of historic proportions” should it travel another 80 miles and reach Lake Michigan, but EPA officials don’t expect that to happen. Steve Wuori, an Enbridge executive vice president, said the company was doing maintenance all along the pipeline this year, but the section at the leak site was not scheduled for replacement. Workers and contractors went to work on the oil Thursday with more than 12,000 feet of containment and absorption boom, 14 skimmers, 43 vacuum trucks and a number of tanker trucks, excavators and other trucks, he said. Health officials went door-todoor, telling Calhoun County residents in about 30 to 50 homes near the spill to evacuate because of air quality concerns. Others were told to use bottled water for drinking and cooking.

smart money Q: Many years ago I bought 100 shares of stock from a company that just went public. Every year we get the financial reports, but we have never received any dividends from this company. I would have thought by now we would have received something. I decided to call and sell the stock but was told that none was being bought back right now. What BRUCE is the point in buying stock if we don’t get any dividends and then can’t sell it? I thought every company had to pay out dividends and if you wanted to sell, had to honor that agree-

ment. It seems worthless to me. Is there any advice you can give us? — Reader A: Sounds like what you bought was penny stocks. Since you said the company did go public, it would appear that the company is not listed on any major exchange, only what is called the pink sheets. Companies can go for 20 years and never pay a dividend and many will never pay one. Whatever it is that the company does, there is little or no market for them. You went out and you gambled and so far you’ve lost. I wouldn’t lose a whole lot of sleep about it, but it’s unlikely they’re doing anything illegal. Right now many companies are suffering and it seems that the stocks have little or no value. •

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s election-year jobs agenda suffered a new setback Thursday when Senate Republicans blocked a bill creating a $30 billion government fund to help open up lending for credit-starved small businesses. The fund would be available to community banks with less than $10 billion in assets to help them increase lending to small businesses. The bill would combine the fund with about $12 billion in tax breaks aimed at small businesses. Democrats say banks should be able to use the lending fund to leverage up to $300 billion in loans, helping to loosen tight credit markets. Some Republicans, however, likened it to the unpopular bailout of the financial industry. Democrats had wanted to

pass the bill before Congress leaves town for vacation, but that won’t happen with the House scheduled to adjourn today. The Senate is in session for another week, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said there would be no more votes until Monday. Congress has extended unemployment benefits for people who have been out of work for long stretches and passed a measure that gives tax breaks to businesses that hire unemployed workers. But other plans stalled, in part because of concerns they would add to the debt. Obama lobbied for the small business lending bill during a trip Wednesday to Edison, N.J. But Senate Democrats fell short of the necessary 60 votes Thursday to end a Republican filibuster.

Hamilton Beach will lease 1.2 million square feet from ProLogis, a global provider of distribution facilities. Hamilton Beach designs, markets and distributes small electric household appliances, as well as commercial products for restaurants, bars and hotels. Hamilton Beach spokesman Mary Beth Perreault said the center will employ 125 people.

Citigroup paying $75M to settle civil charges WASHINGTON — Banking titan Citigroup Inc. is paying $75 million to settle civil charges that it misled investors about its potential losses from subprime mortgages as the housing bust hit in 2007. The Securities and Exchange Commission said the company repeatedly made misleading statements in calls with analysts and regulatory filings about the extent of its holdings tied to high-risk mortgages. As borrowers defaulted, Citigroup’s losses reached tens of billions of dollars on complex instruments linked to mortgages, pushing the bank to a financial precipice. Citigroup said the exposure was $13 billion or less. The SEC said it exceeded $50 billion. Citigroup earned $2.7 billion in the second quarter of this year.

The government bought the mortgage-related investments while rescuing AIG and Bear Stearns.

Senate panel bans generic drug practice WASHINGTON — In a defeat for the powerful drug lobby, a Senate panel approved legislation to prohibit drug companies from paying generic drug makers to delay bringing less costly products to market. The measure would ban a “pay-to-delay” practice — opposed by the Federal Trade Commission in lawsuits brought since 2001 — in which brand-name drug companies and generic drug makers both profit. Brand-name drug makers get higher prices while the generic companies are paid to stay out of the market.

It would require a major overhaul of rules on work schedules to prevent fatigue.

Rep. Rangel to be tried on 13 ethics charges WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans wanted an election-season ethics case against Democratic powerhouse Rep. Charles Rangel of New York. And now, it looks like they have one. A House ethics panel of four Democrats and four Republicans, who will determine Rangel’s guilt or innocence on 13 ethics charges, held its organizational meeting Thursday. The message going forward, from the top Republican on the panel, was: Let the trial begin. Rangel was “given the opportunity to negotiate a settlement during the investigation phase,” Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas said. “We are now in the trial phase.” McCaul’s strong comment was echoed by Rep. Jo Bonner, R-Ala., who was on a separate ethics panel that conducted the two-year investigation of Rangel and brought the charges. “Mr. Rangel was given multiple opportunities to settle this matter. Instead, he chose to move forward to the public trial phase,” he said. Republicans have already been making Rangel a campaign issue, and a fall trial would give them expanded opportunities. It can’t start until September, because Congress takes off in August. Soon after the charges were revealed, the National Republican Senatorial Committee warmed up its campaign message, issuing news releases in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Louisiana and Florida. The statements asked why Democratic Senate candidates in those states haven’t yet returned money Rangel raised for them. “I feel confident that this

The associated press

Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., leaves his office on Capitol Hill Thursday.

The charges A House investigative panel filed 13 charges of ethical wrongdoing against Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y. Among them are allegations that Rangel: • Improperly used official stationery and congressional staff to solicit donations for a New York college center named after him. party and this president have a record on ethics reform and taking on the special interests that we’re happy to put in front of the American people in November,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said today. For Rangel, a trial is a terrible embarrassment for a former Ways and Means Committee chairman who held sway over taxes, trade, Medicare, Social Security, portions of health care reform and other major issues.

• Accepted favors and benefits from donors to the Rangel Center that could be construed as influencing his congressional actions. • Improperly used the congressional free mail privilege to send solicitations for the Rangel Center in violation of postal laws and congressional rules. • Engaged in a pattern of submitting financial disclo-

sure statements that were incomplete and inaccurate. • Failed to report rental income from his unit in the Punta Cana resort in the Dominican Republic on his federal tax returns from 1998 through 2006. • Used a rent-subsidized apartment in New York as a campaign office when the lease required that the apartment be only for living space.

In the frantic hours before the televised ethics proceeding, Rangel did take the advice of some Democratic colleagues and offered a new plea bargain in an effort to head off a trial. At one point, people familiar with the talks said the committee’s nonpartisan lawyers accepted the offer. But since committee members have to sign off, the McCaul and Bonner statements indicate they would accept nothing less than a total or near-total capitulation by Rangel in which he

accepts guilt on virtually all the charges. Rangel’s offer was not made public. It would take at least one Republican vote to halt a trial. And ethics chairman Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., has made it clear she wants the committee to be unanimous at this point to avoid partisanship. If Rangel admits to all the violations, the trial could be stopped and the ethics committee would proceed to penalty deliberations.

House rejects bill to aid sick 9/11 responders WASHINGTON (AP) — A bill that would have provided up to $7.4 billion in aid to people sickened by World Trade Center dust fell short in the House on Thursday, raising the possibility that the bulk of compensation for the ill will come from a legal settlement hammered out in the federal courts. The bill would have provided free health care and compensation payments to 9/11 rescue and recovery workers who fell ill after working in the trade center ruins. It failed to win the needed two-thirds majority, 255-159. The vote was largely along party lines, with 12 Republicans joining Democrats supporting the measure. For weeks, a judge and teams of lawyers have been urging 10,000 former ground zero workers to sign on to a court-supervised settlement that would split $713 million among people who developed respiratory problems and other illnesses after inhaling trade center ash. The court deal shares some similarities with the aid program that the federal legislation would have created, but it involves far less money.

doing, merely that the records would be relevant in a counterintelligence or counterterrorism investigation. The person whose records the government wants doesn’t even need to be a suspect. The bureau’s use of these socalled national security letters to gather information has a checkered history. The bureau engaged in widespread and serious misuse of its authority to issue the letters, illegally collecting data from Americans and foreigners, the Justice Department’s inspector general concluded in 2007. The bureau issued 192,499 national security letter requests from 2003 to 2006. Weathering that controversy, the FBI has continued its reliance on the letters to gather information from telephone companies, banks, credit bureaus and other busi-

nesses with personal records about their customers or subscribers — and Internet service providers. That last source is the focus of the Justice Department’s push to get Congress to modify the law. The law already requires Internet service providers to produce the records,

said Dean Boyd, a spokesman for the Justice Department’s national security division. But he said as written it also causes confusion and the potential for unnecessary litigation as some Internet companies have argued they are not always obligated to comply with the FBI requests.

FBI access to e-mail, Web records raises fears WASHINGTON (AP) — Invasion of privacy in the Internet age. Expanding the reach of law enforcement to snoop on e-mail traffic or on Web surfing. Those are among the criticisms being aimed at the FBI as it tries to update a key surveillance law. With its proposed amendment, is the Obama administration merely clarifying a statute or expanding it? Only time and a suddenly on guard Congress will tell. Federal law requires communications providers to produce records in counterintelligence investigations to the FBI, which doesn’t need a judge’s approval and court order to get them. They can be obtained merely with the signature of a special agent in charge of any FBI field office and there is no need even for a suspicion of wrong-

workers suing New York City over their exposure to the dust would be eligible for a hefty payout. But supporters of the deal have been saying the court settlement is the only realistic option for the sick, because Congress will never act. “Ladies and gentlemen, you can wait and wait and wait for that legislation ... it’s not passing,” Kenneth Feinberg, the former special master of the federal 9/11 victim compensation fund, told an audience of ground zero responders Monday in a meeting on Staten Island. Democratic leaders opted to consider the House bill under a procedure that requires a two-thirds vote for approval rather than a simple majority. Such a move blocked potential GOP amendments to the measure. A key backer of the bill, U.S. Rep. Peter King, a Long Island Republican, accused Democrats of staging a “charade.” King said Democrats were “petrified” about casting votes as the fall elections near on controversial amendments, possibly including one that could ban the bill from covering illegal immigrants who were sickened by trade center dust.

Continued from Page A1. come to Vicksburg from other departments across the state, most of the rookie cops are aged somewhere been 21 to 25, Dent said. Studies have recommended 85 sworn officers for the city. Dent, 54, started as a patrolman with Vicksburg department in 1982, and worked his way up the ranks to chief. He was in the top spot for about a year and half before being replaced by Tommy Moffett in late 2001. He was tapped by Armstrong in early June to return to the department as deputy chief over department operations. After resigning from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, where he worked as a fraud investigator since 2004, Dent was sworn in on June 21. “I’m very pleased to be back with the Vicksburg Police Department,” Dent said. “When you start a career in something like police work, it really gets in your blood.” Along with pairing new

Continued from Page A1. ent budget year and trustees did not request a rate increase. Supervisors said they also will avoid increasing rates. Any additional income, such as the $45,436, would come from higher valuations placed on property by the tax assessor’s office. This year’s countywide assessment rolls increased about 1.9 percent. Riverwalk and Warren County found themselves more than $47 million apart on calculations of the value of the casino’s three parcels. A separate appeal filed by Ameristar Casino over values placed on its 20 parcels is also unsettled, though is reportedly closer to a resolution. Supervisors expect slight budget overruns this year and are pinning hopes of building cash reserves through earlier cuts to charitable agencies to support the Warren County-Vicksburg Public Library and Vicksburg-Tallulah Regional Airport. The county’s over-

recruits with experienced cops, Dent said some of the policies and procedures being reviewed at the department also will result in a more professional force overall. Among the policies being reviewed, he said, is appearance. “If I’m going to take a report from you, I really don’t need a tongue piercing...or a nose ring,” Dent used as an example. “What we want to do is present the most professional officers possible. Police work is not just a job, and you can’t treat it as just a job.” Also being looked at is the cell phone policy for officers. Currently, officers can use personal cell phones while on patrol. Dent said the department likely will move toward a policy where only handsfree cell phones are allowed, and noted some cell phone use by officers is workrelated and necessary. “The key element in all of this is safety,” he said.

all budget deficit shrinks slightly in the initial draft, to $497,525. Charitable support, allowable only by act of the Legislature, is penciled in for a 23.7 percent cut compared to last year, to $225,105. County support for NRoute would be trimmed by $1,400, to $30,100 next year. Main Street support would be cut in half, to $8,000, and VTR wouldn’t see the extra $25,000 to 30,000 in capital support, according to the initial draft. “I see we’re decreasing our cash balance from last year, so we’re going backward,” District 4 Supervisor Bill Lauderdale said. “Somehow or another, we’ve gotta cut stuff. We can’t be funding everything.” Five more bailiffs and a prison population manager at Warren County Jail would add to the facility’s $1.4 million budget. Indigent defense costs are expected to make up the biggest projected bulge in spending — about $54,000 — absent a public defender system that would require fewer attorneys and capped legal fees. Costs of circuit court to county gov-

ernment should exceed $1 million for the third time in five years, according to the draft. Fine collections from circuit, justice and youth courts are predicted to drop at least $80,000, while more than $6,000 in equipment to speed up digitization of electronic case filing figures to stay in the final budget, to be adopted by supervisors Sept. 7. Reimbursements to the county from homestead exemptions are slotted at $509,940, based on another 10 percent cut from the state, Smith said. Higher autopsy fees for the coroner and a request from District Attorney Ricky Smith to fund a third assistant DA with local funds make for $18,500 in new spending for those departments. Supervisors expect to tackle the sheriff’s department’s budget in talks set for today. The board convenes an objection hearing at 9 a.m. Monday for those who wish to voice their concerns over property values. Last year, the county received written formal complaints from six businesses.

necessary paving. Construction representatives meeting with the board said a base course of asphalt would be in place by the start of school that would serve until the school closes for vacation in December, at which time the final driveway and parking areas would be paved. Work at the junior high is about 75 percent complete, the board was told. The addition will not be complete by the start of school but remaining construction will not affect students. Meal prices have not changed from last year, said child nutrition director Gail Kavanaugh. They include breakfast at 75 cents for elementary, $1 for secondary and 25 cents for reducedpriced meals; and lunch at $2.25 for all students except reduced-price at 40 cents.

Continued from Page A1. show city invoices proving Graham had purchased a laptop computer, digital camera and digital picture frames, among “many other items.” Some of the items had been identified by Graham’s wife, he said. Graham, also a former member of popular Vicksburg band The Chill, was fired by the Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen on July 9 at the request of Graham’s attorney. Varner said Graham wanted to be terminated so he could pursue retirement benefits he had accumulated in five years. Along with managing TV23 operations, Graham had been responsible for handling city communications and advertising during his time at City Hall, among other duties. John Howard Dennis, founding member of The Chill, has said the group owned and used its own equipment and had no knowledge of that seized from Graham’s home. He has also said Graham is no longer with the band.

Police confirm body is Wright’s

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Former NBA big man Lorenzen Wright, whose body was found in the woods outside Memphis, was shot to death and the case is being investigated as a homicide, Memphis police said Thursday. Police wouldn’t answer questions about motive or suspects. But records indicate that Wright, a 34-yearold Oxford native who was revered in his hometown as a generous and likable sports hero, was probably carrying a large amount of cash when he disappeared on July 18. A court affidavit obtained by The Associated Press also said Wright had sold two vehicles to a man affiliated with a Memphis drug ring that’s suspected in six deaths. His family filed a missing person report with police on July 22, four days after he was last seen. Family members said Wright’s body was found near an apartment complex in southeast Memphis on Wednesday, but police awaited dental records to confirm his identity. Police on Thursday said a 911 call was placed from Wright’s cell phone early on July 19 and investigators determined it came from the area his body was found.

Convicted thief and former Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli has accepted an invitation from Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt to visit the school this weekend, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press today. Masoli made the decision early this morning to visit the Oxford campus. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Masoli has not yet enrolled in school.

college football Masoli was considered a possible Heisman Trophy candidate after a breakout season at Oregon, but coach Chip Jeremiah Kelly kicked Masoli him off the team after two brushes with the law in six months. The San Francisco native pleaded guilty in March to misdemeanor second-degree

burglary in a plea deal after he was charged with a felony for stealing a pair of laptop computers and a guitar from a fraternity on campus last January. Kelly suspended him for the 2010 season. He was expected to redshirt and Kelly allowed him to practice with the team during spring practice. Kelly dismissed him from the team after police cited him for possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and driving with a suspended license and failing to stop upon exiting a driveway in June. Masoli entered a guilty plea and paid a $613

weeks before the start of preseason practice. Cotton’s father told the Mobile Press-Register on Thursday that he will transfer to South Alabama. Raymond Cotton Sr. told the paper that Ole Miss had granted his son a release from his scholarship. The Rebels lost last season’s starter, Jevan Snead, when he decided to skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft. That leaves them with just two scholarship quarterbacks — redshirt sophomore See Masoli, Page B3.

On the mark 10-year-old Vincent finds success on archery range By Ernest Bowker ebowker@vicksburgpost.com A small herd of animals stands silent watch over the trees next to Garrett Vincent’s house. One deer poses over a flower pot, another looks out on the street from the tree line. Deeper within the grove, a boar hugs the ground as a bear frozen in mid-stride stalks away. If they could talk, they’d all have tales of their encounter with the 10-year-old marksman who lives next door. Instead, their scarred foam rubber hides tell the story. Tightly grouped arrow wounds dot their midsections, a testimonial to an archer with unerring aim and a talent for the craft. Vincent, a fifth-grader at St. Francis Elementary, is also an archery prodigy. He spent the first half of the year competing in archery tournaments around the southeast and won two in the Eagle Trophy class, including the Mississippi Archery Shooters Association State Championship earlier this month. In seven tournaments,

archery most with fields of between 15 and 25 competitors, Vincent hasn’t finished worse than seventh. It’s a trend he hopes to continue this weekend in one of the tournament circuit’s biggest events, the McKenzie ASA Classic in West Monroe, La. “He’s very competitive,” said Garrett’s father, Michael Vincent. “He does a good job at most things he does. His first tournament he finished third. That’s a good sign right there.” Like most young boys, Garrett Vincent enjoys playing baseball and football. Until late last year he hadn’t even thought about archery. Then, one day, he and his 12-year-old brother Luke went to the yard and started shooting at the foam animal targets in the yard. Garrett showed an uncanny knack for hitting the mark. His gift for judging distance allowed him to aim well and group shots. “We really don’t hunt. Me and my brother just had a See Vincent Page B3.

Garrett Vincent, 10, takes aim at the family’s Warren County home. Vincent has had an impressive summer on the competitive archery circuit. He’s won two tournaments, including the Mississippi state championship, after taking up the sport less than a year ago.

fine last week. The plea may be considered a violation of his probation for the burglary conviction, but it was unclear how Lane County prosecutors would handle the case. Masoli has fulfilled all of his other obligations in connection to that case, his attorney said. A phone message left with the district attorney’s office was not returned. Nutt said earlier this summer that the Rebels weren’t interested in Masoli, but the situation changed when backup quarterback Raymond Cotton left the team last week, just two

For Chase Smith, threepeats are so last year. Fourpeats are all the rage now. Smith, a senior golfer at Delta State, will try to win the Warren County Golf Championship for the fourth straight year when play begins Saturday at Clear Creek Golf Course. Smith broke the course record last year in the first round, carding a 10-under 62. He struggled the next day in the final round but still managed to hold off Mike Hurley to claim the county title for the third straight year. Another win this week would break a tie with Bucky Buckner, who won three straight county titles from 1981-83. “The course should be in good shape with all the rain they’ve had this week,” Smith said. The former St. Aloysius golfer had his most productive season at Delta State, winning the North Alabama Spring Classic in March at the Robert Trent Jones’ Shoals Fighting Joe Course. He also finished fifth at the Gulf South Conference Tournament in Hot Springs to earn all-conference honors

He was later selected to play in the NCAA Division II South Regional in Wilson, N.C. “It was a good season. I won at UNA on a hard course. No one broke par on the first day and then I went out early on the second day and shot a 69 and won by two. I was fifth at the GSC in Hot Springs. I always play well there. Then at regionals, I was 3-over in each round and finished middle of the pack, but it was fun,” Smith said. With the regionals being played in May, Smith entered See Golf, Page B3.

Baseball M-Braves snap losing streak Erik Cordier had 10 strikeouts and Jose Sucre hit a solo home run in the top of the eighth inning Thursday to give the Mississippi Braves a 2-1 victory over Huntsville. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the M-Braves, and was just their second win in seven games. Sucre’s homer was one of only three hits for the M-Braves. Huntsville starter Mark Rogers allowed two of them, and one run, in seven strong innings but got a no-decision. Cordier also went seven innings. He allowed five hits, one run and four walks, and improved his record to 9-6. Tim Collins finished up with two scoreless innings for his second save.

Phenom Strasburg put on 15-day DL WASHINGTON — Rookie righthander Stephen Strasburg went on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with inflammation in his throwing shoulder, the latest indication of how careful the Washington Nationals are being with their prized pitcher. It’s the first trip to the DL for Strasburg, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 amateur draft and signed a record $15.1 million contract. The move to the DL is retroactive to July 22, a day after Strasburg made his last appearance. Washington manager Jim Riggleman said the team expects Strasburg to pitch again for them this season. It’s possible he could begin his road back by playing catch Saturday.

Showalter hired as Orioles’ manager BALTIMORE — Buck Showalter was hired to manage the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday, his latest rebuilding project in a major league career full of them. Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail said Showalter’s first game will be Tuesday night at Camden Yards against the Los Angeles Angels. Baltimore has the worst record in the majors at 32-70 and is headed toward its 13th straight losing season. The Orioles fired manager Dave Trembley on June 4 and replaced him on an interim basis with Juan Samuel. The 54-year-old Showalter, who played college baseball at Mississippi State, is a two-time AL Manager of the Year. He won the award in 1994 with the New York Yankees and 2004 with Texas. He also was the first manager in the history of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Champs get back to business

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton speaks to the media at the team’s training facility in Metairie, La., on Thursday. The Saints open training camp today.

Saints report to training camp By Brett Martel The Associated Press METAIRIE, La. — The Saints embraced all the offseason fanfare until it was literally time for the Super Bowl champs to go back to work. Even New Orleans coach and now best-selling author Sean Payton held his latest book signing less than 24 hours before players reported on Thursday. The coach said the book endeavor required more time than he initially thought. “Back in the playoffs, when you are approached ... with the suggestion, ‘Hey, if you guys win the Super Bowl, would you have an interest in writing a book?’ It’s easy to get the guy out of your room and say, ‘Sure, if we win the Super Bowl, let’s revisit that,”’ said the best-selling author. “And sure enough, a week after we won the Super Bowl, this guy shows up in my office. “Quickly, you realize if you are putting your name on it, you want it to be good, and it takes a lot of time,” the coach continued. “There’s a part of me that says if I knew then what I know now, it may have never gotten written.”

nfl Well, the parades, parties, talk show appearances and book tours have come to an end and the next few weeks of training camp could reveal if all the fanfare has taken a toll. Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis said reporting day went smoothly. Rookies Patrick Robinson and Matt Tennant were the only no-shows. Robinson, a cornerback drafted in the first round out of Florida State, signed a five-year contract this morning and was expected to report today. Tennant already has signed but was excused for the death of his mother. Four players will miss the first week or two of practice and be placed on the team’s physically unable to perform list: safety Darren Sharper, linebacker Clint Ingram and receivers Marques Colston and Robert Meachem. Loomis said Colston recently had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. Sharper and Ingram also had offseason surgery on their left knees, while Meachem had toe surgery. However, neither Payton

nor Loomis anticipated long absences for any of those players. “What it really means is they weren’t able to pass their physical today,” Loomis said. “They have a little time left in their rehab before they can be full-go at practice. ... We expect all these guys to be participating in practice full go prior to the first preseason game” on Aug. 12. Payton noted that attendance at offseason training sessions was close to 100 percent, and it did not appear any players had gotten fat and happy in the aftermath of their championship. “You hear some of the recurring themes that it starts from within, the challenge of staying hungry, of not assuming that you’re going to be back in the postseason,” Payton said. “You try to outline and identify and really look closely at some of those topics, having that same taste of hunger and attention to detail, and not allowing your mind to think that everything will take care of itself by the time of the first game of the season starts. The process has to begin again and it doesn’t pick up where you left off.”

Favre a no-show at Vikings’ camp MANKATO, Minn. (AP) — If Brett Favre returns to Minnesota for a 20th NFL season, it almost certainly won’t be before the Vikings’ 12-day stay in this college town comes to an end. That seems to be just fine with the rest of the team. Nearly every veteran who was available to the media Thursday said they had no problem with Favre skipping training camp like he did last season. “There’s been a lot of talk about players being treated differently,” center John Sullivan said. “Well, guys aren’t the same. Brett’s been playing for 20 years. He’s earned some leeway. We know that if he comes back he’ll be 100 percent committed to the team.” Favre has yet to inform the Vikings if he will honor the second year of his contract.

Phillies land ace Oswalt ahead of deadline By The Associated Press Roy Oswalt granted his own wish: He’s now part of a pennant race. Miguel Tejada, Jorge Cantu and Matt Capps joined the mix, too. The trade wheel of fortune kept spinning Thursday with veterans-for-prospects deals that typically dot the stretch run. More swaps were expected before Saturday’s 4 p.m. deadline as pitchers Ted Lilly and Jake Westbrook could go. The Philadelphia Phillies made the boldest move, getting Oswalt and about $11 million from the Houston Astros for pitcher J.A. Happ and two speedy minor leaguers. The Phillies sent a pair of 19-year-olds, outfielder Anthony Gose and shortstop Jonathan Villar, to the Astros. Houston then traded Gose to Toronto for Triple-A first baseman Brett Wallace. “I’m excited,” Phillies ace Roy Halladay said. “It says a lot that this team is dedicated to winning.” Oswalt, a Weir native, agreed to waive his no-trade clause and approved the deal to the two-time defending NL champions. The three-time All-Star is set to start tonight at Washington. Still throwing hard at 32, Oswalt was 6-12 despite a 3.24 ERA for the foundering Astros. He asked for a trade earlier in the season and the St. Louis Cardinals were among the teams that were interested. The Phillies took an eightgame winning streak into

and Omar Poveda to Florida. Texas also receives cash in the deal. “Deep inside I’m very sad to leave the Marlins, of course,” Cantu said. “My turn is to go right now to the Texas Rangers and help that ballclub out. They’re playing well and winning the division. I think it will be fun. Whenever you go to a new team it’s always fun and exciting. ... There’s still two months to go. I know what I’m capable of doing.” The Rangers already have All-Star Michael Young at third base — Cantu said in The associated press recent days he was prepared Pitcher Roy Oswalt throws for the Houston Astros earto switch back to his former lier this month. Oswalt was traded to the Philadelphia spot at first base, a position of Phillies on Thursday for pitcher J.A.

Nate Stanley, whose experience came when he played briefly in the Cotton Bowl last January after Snead was injured, and junior college transfer Randall Mackey. Masoli’s been looking for a second chance and a new home this summer. He can play immediately this season under NCAA rules because he has already earned his undergraduate degree, but he must be accepted into graduate school. Masoli joined the Ducks in 2008 as a fifth-string junior college transfer who was expected to redshirt. He got a chance to play because of injury and held onto the job. In 2009, he guided the Ducks to their first Pac-10 title since 2001 and their first Rose Bowl since 1995. He threw for 2,147 yards and 15 TDs and rushed for 668 yards and 13 TDs. Nutt and Ole Miss can expect to take criticism if Masoli eventually joins the team. Masoli began repairing his image by launching his

own website, www.jeremiahmasoli.net, to tell his side of the story and apologize. “I made a few very poor decisions in the past year, and I apologize to my family, friends and fans for them,” a letter on Masoli’s home page reads. “But I am not the person who has been portrayed in many media stories. “I am not a thief nor a thug. The people who know me best know that is the truth.” The website features pictures of Masoli, including one of him hugging his grandmother, a biography, career timeline, endorsements by former coaches and others he’s close with, a resume and a section entitled media mistakes, detailing inaccuracies Masoli says have been made in stories about him. Masoli concludes his letter by writing: “I love playing football and want to continue to play. I’m still trying to figure out where that might be.”

Vincent Continued from Page B1. cheap Wal-Mart bow. We started to hit dots and we asked if we could get a good bow,” Garrett said. “At first I said, ‘this is fun,’ so I kept on shooting. Then my dad took me to my first tournament and it was fun.” That first tournament was a local event in Lucedale, where he placed third. That strong result led to more tournaments around the southeast. As Garrett showed more of an affinity for the sport his father bought him better equipment that allowed the natural talent to shine through even more. At the same time, Garrett showed another unusual talent for an archer so young — a willingness to practice and understand his mistakes. He has gotten his share of pointers during clinics at the various tournaments and from other young archers, as well as from Michael — who shot on the semi-pro circuit for a few years in the 1990s — but has mostly honed his skill through hours of practice. “I practice almost every day, then if I got into a bad habit I’d put the bow down for about a week and come back to it,” Garrett said. Michael Vincent said Garrett’s greatest ability is a

natural gift for judging the distance of his shots. In the Eagle Trophy class, a division for 9-10-year-olds, archers shoot at 25-30 targets — either the same type of foam rubber animals that sit in the yard, or paper “dot” targets attached to foam blocks. Archers walk through a course and shoot at the targets from ranges of 10-25 yards. They earn points by hitting one of several scoring rings located on the targets. Misjudging the distance of a target by even a few inches can cost an archer points, but it’s easy for young and inexperienced competitors to do. “Basics like form and how to stand, I can teach him, but things like judging yardage you can’t. He’s got that yardage judging gift that a lot of people don’t,” Michael Vincent said. Garrett said his friends have congratulated him on the trophies he’s won, but a lot of them don’t know about his exploits on the tournament circuit. The foam targets have made him more popular than success, his mother joked. “All the little kids around the neighborhood think it’s neat. They come over and shoot at the targets,” she said with a laugh.

Golf Continued from Page B1. just two tournaments this summer, finishing 14th at the Mississippi State Amateur and fourth at the Greenwood Invitational. He enrolled in summer school at Delta State and dialed back his schedule. “I had the lead by one stroke in Greenwood and then went four-over on Sunday and finished fourth. At the State Am, I was near the top halfway through my second round and then three bad holes on the back nine cost me,” Smith said. Smith should get a challenge from the county’s next rising golf star, Warren Central’s Parker Rutherford. “He’s played really well this summer. And then there’s

Mike (Hurley). He’s so solid,” Smith said. Chase Smith’s father, Kent, the tournament director and Clear Creek pro, said 65 players had registered early for the County Championship and about 90 were expected to tee off on Saturday morning. They’ll encounter tripledigit temperatures and a course made tougher by rain earlier this week. “The rain has greened it up and it has made the rough deeper. We weren’t able to cut it this week. By Sunday, it should be really long. It’s going to be crucial to get the ball to the green,” Kent Smith said.

Ellen leaving ‘Idol;’ Lopez negotiating Former “Fly Girl” Jennifer Lopez is poised to return to television — this time as a judge on “American Idol.” The singer-dancer-actor was close to signing a deal to join Fox TV’s hit singing contest, a person familiar with the negotiations said late Thursday. Jennifer Ellen Lopez DeGeneres Fox declined comment. Phone and e-mail messages for Lopez’s representatives were not immediately returned. The “American Idol” opening for Lopez comes with comediantalk show host Ellen DeGeneres’ departure from the show. DeGeneres announced Thursday she was leaving after one year as judge. “A couple months ago, I let Fox and the ‘American Idol’ producers know that this didn’t feel like the right fit for me,” DeGeneres said. The comedian-talk show host said she realized that while she “loved discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings.” In May, Simon Cowell exited after nine seasons to start a new talent show for Fox. Those under consideration for his spot, according to reports, are a varied group that includes Steven Tyler and Harry Connick Jr. Lopez’ films include “Selena,”“The Wedding Planner” and most recently “The Back-Up Plan.” She has appeared as a mentor on “American Idol.” She was part of the “Fly Girl” house dancers on the comedy show “In Living Color” in 1990 before becoming a backup dancer for Janet Jackson.

Wahlberg gets star on Walk of Fame Rapper-turned-underwear model-turned-Oscar-nominated actor Mark Wahlberg has been enshrined in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The 39-year-old actor was presented with a star Thursday on Hollywood Boulevard’s famed sidewalk monument. Will Ferrell, who stars with Wahlberg in the action-comedy “The Other Guys” being released Mark next week, was on hand for the ceremony. The Wahlberg comedian got in a couple of digs. “I’m glad to be here,” Ferrell said. “I first became a fan of Mark’s when I bought his workout video. And I love all your ’Bourne’ movies.” The “Bourne” films star Matt Damon, not Wahlberg. Wahlberg first gained fame in the early 1990s, recording with the hip-hop group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. That was followed by a ubiquitous ad campaign featuring him in Calvin Klein underwear. He then turned to acting and got attention with his breakout role as Dirk Diggler in 1997’s “Boogie Nights.” Wahlberg got a supporting actor Academy Award nomination in 2006 for “The Departed.” His wife and four young children were on hand for the sidewalk ceremony. “I’m so happy my kids are sitting through this,” Wahlberg said. “When I heard I was getting this star, I felt like it was a practical joke.”

Inmate sues man he burglarized A Florida inmate is suing the man he’s convicted of burglarizing, claiming the man and two others roughed him up during a citizen’s arrest. Michael Dupree is serving a 12-year sentence for burglary and cocaine possession stemming from a 2007 break-in of a van in St. Petersburg. Dupree stole a bicycle locked inside and was apprehended after the owner, Anthony McKoy, saw him with the bike down the street. Dupree says McKoy and two others pointed a gun at him, handcuffed him and placed a knee painfully in his back. He’s seeking $500,000 for disabilities and distress suffered during the takedown. Dupree filed the civil lawsuit on his own, without the help of an attorney.

Chelsea to wed in Rhinebeck amid ‘Horror,’ cows RHINEBECK, N.Y. (AP) — If some of Chelsea Clinton’s wedding guests want to make a weekend of it in Rhinebeck, there’s a stage production of “The Rocky Horror Show” on the boards Saturday night and Sunday. They won’t even have to p a c k ext r a clothes. “We encourage people to come in costume and interact with Chelsea the cast,” Clinton said Babette Fasolino of the Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck. “So if they want to come in their tuxedos, they are perfectly welcome.” There’s also a cow-judging event at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, although formal wear might not be appropriate there. “If they come over after a few drinks they might not know what they’re stepping in,” said Vicki Imperati, spokesman for the county fairgrounds in Rhinebeck. “Most of the spectators are the families of the 4-H kids who bring their cows in. But everyone’s invited, and it’s free!” Rhinebeck, population 8,000, is a busy place on summer weekends — tourists and day-trippers are attracted to antiques and crafts outlets and Hudson River scenery — and the rumored Clinton wedding isn’t shutting things down.

But state police Maj. Michael Kopy said Thursday that the influx of guests, reporters and curiosity seekers wouldn’t come close to the crowds at the Dutchess County Fair. Ballgames, yard sales, community theatricals and church services are proceeding as scheduled, and the roadside vegetable stands will be fully stocked in hopes that guests and gawkers will want to bring home some fresh squash or

just-picked yellow daisies. “Hopefully they’ll stop here,” said Leslie Lloyd at Lobotsky’s Wonderland Farm Market & Nursery. “I think they will. We’re on 308 on the way to the Taconic (Parkway).” The Rev. LeRoy Ness also wouldn’t mind if people stopped by his place, the Third Evangelical Lutheran Church, where a 50-child Bible school was in session this week. “I won’t say I expect a lot of people, because we hope that the folks who come to celebrate this wedding would see that as a religious event,” Ness said. “But some people like to

attend a Sunday service and they’re welcome here, of course,” he added. “I’m sure we’ll mention the wedding during our service.” Asked if he thought visitors might swell the weekly collection, the pastor said: “No, I don’t expect that. I don’t expect any big gifts. But I would accept anyone’s charity.” Ness said he had heard nothing official about the wedding or any official warnings about streets being closed for security, but he said, “I will avoid driving on River Road,” near the elegant Astor Courts where the two are expected to wed.

Jill Biden plays to type in ‘Army Wives’ episode WASHINGTON (AP) — It isn’t much of a stretch for Jill Biden when she takes an acting turn in an episode of Lifetime network’s “Army Wives.” The second lady, playing herself, visits the show’s Fort Marshall to hear about the challenges facing military families and offer them words of encouragement. “I’m proud to be here today as a second lady, but I’m even more proud to be here as a military mom,” Biden tells a group that gathers for the post’s annual fun run to benefit military kids. In between all of the bickering, smooching and other interpersonal drama of the TV show, Biden gives the crowd a pep talk. She tells them how

important it is to build “stronger ties between our civilian and military communities.” “Although only 1 percent Jill of Americans Biden are fighting our wars today, we need 100 percent of Americans to support them and their families,” she says. She blows a horn to start the fun run, and that’s that. Biden’s lines sound a lot like those the second lady speaks in real life: She’s traveled extensively to support the cause of military families. Biden and her husband were hosting a special screening

of the episode, titled “Mud, Sweat and Tears,” at Fort Belvoir, Va., on Thursday night. Their son Beau returned last

Adult industry seeks to cash in on iPorn potential in new phone NEW YORK (AP) — It’s a maxim of technology: Invent the newest gadget and the porn industry will find a way to cash in. So when Apple Inc. launched the iPhone 4 and its FaceTime videoconference feature, it didn’t take long for adult-entertainment companies to develop video-sex chat services and start hiring workers through Craigslist. With more than 3 million of the phones already sold, the adult industry stands to make big money on this new way to reach out and touch someone — even if it puts Apple, which has always taken pains to keep its iPhone apps squeaky clean, in an awkward spot. In at least five cities, Craigslist ads seek models specifically for video sex chat on FaceTime. Many of the ads even offer to throw in a free iPhone 4 for the new employees. FaceTime lets people call another iPhone 4 user and have live video conversations over a Wi-Fi connection using the front-facing camera on the new model. In one TV ad, a soldier uses it to get a look at his faraway wife’s ultrasound pictures. The adult industry wants its customers to share moments of an entirely different kind with its stars. And while the technology may be new, the idea is not. Porn providers have always been early adopters. In the 1970s, the demand for explicit videos at home helped VCRs become widespread, and the industry was the first to embrace DVDs, too. Internet porn peddlers were some of the first to make wide use of streaming video and online credit card payments. “The first time someone created a camera there was someone who said, ‘Wouldn’t it be good for someone to take off their clothes in front of this camera?”’ said Michael Gartenberg, vice president at Interpret LLC, a media research company.

The associated press

Adult film star Teagan Presley with her iPhone in Atlanta And for years, cameras mounted on computers have helped connect people for racy online video sessions. But the portability and privacy of a cell phone makes FaceTime a new frontier for the industry. “A phone is such an intimate thing, you usually don’t lend it out or have someone else use it,” said Quentin Boyer, a spokesman for Pink Visual, an adult production company. Boyer said his company began planning for iPhone 4 video services almost as soon as the device hit stores. They should be ready in a matter of weeks. Boyer said the company will offer FaceTime sessions with some of the same women who appear in its videos — likely charging $5 or $6 a minute, payable by credit card. “It has a very personal feel — your mobile phone to hers,” he said. Online exhibitionism is only growing. Take Chatroulette, which randomly connects strangers for video chats. While the service isn’t explicitly sexual, it’s common for

tent and political satires for their potential to offend. While some rejected apps have been approved after revisions, Apple has kept one strict rule: No porn. FaceTime isn’t even an outside developer’s app. It’s a main feature of the phone. An e-mail attributed to CEO Steve Jobs that was posted on technology blogs in April says it is Apple’s “moral responsibility” to keep pornography off the iPhone. Apple would not confirm that Jobs wrote it. But just as Apple can’t control whom iPhone users call, the company will have a hard time dictating how FaceTime is used. Internet experts say customers will understand that Apple cannot control what goes on in private video chats. “Apple can’t be seen as responsible any more than makers of routers or hardware are responsible for the content you are looking at,” said Jonathan Zittrain, a co-founder of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University. Still, advocacy groups worry that FaceTime could connect children to pornography or predators. Parents can put

computers in public areas of the home to supervise Internet usage, but mobile phones go anywhere. “Unfortunately, both children and sexual predators are often ahead of parents when comes to technology,” says Donna Rice Hughes, president of Enough Is Enough, a child safety group. Apple, asked to comment on the emerging adult services, noted that people can choose whom they chat with, just like regular calls, and parents can turn off the FaceTime feature. Hughes said it would be better if parents could create a “safe list” of people their children could call. For the adult-entertainment industry, FaceTime could be more than just another medium. It could actually change the business. For independent sex-chat workers, for instance, it could mean handing over less of their earnings to computer-based services. But FaceTime presents its own challenges. It requires that both parties in a chat have each other’s phone numbers, which could expose video-chat workers to unwanted calls from their clients.

So far, most online video sex chat services have let the customer see the performer, but not the other way around. FaceTime may change that. “We are seeing more and more that customers want to be watched as much as they want to watch,” said Dan Hogue, owner of an adult chat

Solitary man reaches out, but is lonely in crowd Dear Abby: I’m a gay 44-yearold man with self-esteem problems. I have never seen myself as worthy of affection, and I don’t consider myself attractive. I have never been in a relationship, and no one outside of my family has ever said “I love you” to me. I have recently tried to come out of my shell. As a result, the network of people I associate with has tripled — and I think that has compounded my problem. Aside from parties where everyone is invited, I never hear from any of these people. I have only a couple of good friends, people I can talk to. I have leaned on my friends to try to help me with my problem. But I’m afraid if I keep unloading on them it’ll wear them down, and I don’t want to burden them. I wish I didn’t feel so worthless. I know part of my problem is the fact that I am unemployed and worried about

money. But this is who I have been my whole life. How do I break the cycle and start feeling good about myself? I’m tired of being lonely all the time. — Lonely in Chicago Dear Lonely: One way to stop feeling lonely is to give yourself less time to feel that way. Because you are unemployed and have the time, volunteer some of it. Find a nonprofit that helps homeless gay youth or senior citizens — or, because the political scene is heating up, the party of your choice. And while you’re at it, contact a gay and lesbian center and ask what kind of counseling services it offers, because

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: Endeavors or enterprises you’ve had difficulty getting off the ground in the past could take off like a rocket in the year ahead. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — You’re going to get that chance to use some valuable knowledge you recently acquired. It’s likely to be in a situation you had previously confronted and failed. This time you’ll succeed. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Something very good is likely to develop between you and another, all because you’ll allow a concerned friend to do for you what you would do for him/her if the situation were reversed. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — An alliance you’re presently forging is likely to turn out to be a very significant one. It’s a good period of time, when links and conditions will be malleable and favor just such arrangements. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Perform your work to the best of your ability. Later in the day you’ll realize that your efforts were actually being analyzed and appreciated. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Don’t be afraid to take a chance on what you sincerely believe you can do. If you are assertive enough to try to advance your ambitions, you will be successful. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Loose ends concerning a financial situation that you’ve been unable to tie up previously can now be knotted together in a compatible arrangement for all parties involved. Go for it. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Being able to judge others and situations more accurately than anybody else will be an edge you’ll have over competitors. You’ll be able to easily use this asset to outdistance the rest of the pack. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Keep that profit motive you are harboring uppermost in your mind today. You’re presently in a very favorable cycle for accumulation, which could serve as a big boost. Aries (March 21-April 19) — This is a great day to get together with your friends, so be sure to make some plans that include some of your favorite people. Your pals will be just as eager to spend some time with you as well. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Things you take on about which you have a positive attitude will work out to your ultimate expectations, so stop worrying about what you can’t do and get into what you can do. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — If you’re going to be a wishful thinker, do it up right and aim to achieve. This is one of those rare days when most anything you take on will turn out to be a successful endeavor. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Aim high and shoot for the moon when it comes to career or financial matters, and don’t settle for anything but the top. Material and worldly objectives can be achieved if you make them a priority.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: My best friend is dating the biggest jerk in the entire state of Illinois. I’ve tried to talk her out of it, but she won’t pay any attention to me. This guy is rude and crude and treats her like dirt. He calls her names in front of her friends and flirts with other girls when he’s out with her. He is so bad that I refuse to be around her when he’s with her. Several times I have called him a jerk, but he always says, “It’s just that you wish I would stop seeing your friend so you could get your claws into me.” I wouldn’t put my claws into him if I were a cat and he were a tasty little mouse! Please tell me what I can do to get my best friend to come to her senses and dump this arrogant jerk. — Nameless, Galesburg, Ill. Namless: You’ve done everything possible. If he’s really such a jerk, she will almost certainly come to that conclusion on her own, eventually. The fact that her friends refuse to be around him may clue her in. All you can do is be patient. If you berate or nag her, she may become defensive and hold onto the “jerk” longer than she should. Dr. Wallace: I read somewhere that you should never use the word “you” when upset with someone. For example, “You should mind your own business” is not the way to say this. Is there a better way to tell someone to keep her nose out of my business? — Nameless, Holland, Mich. Nameless: Family counselors teach that “you” statements don’t work because the person listening feels attacked and accused and will only end up fighting back. Statements that are structured “When you ... I feel ... “ are much more effective and positive. For instance, a better way to tell someone to “butt” out would be to say: “When you interfere in my affairs, I feel upset because I’m a very private person.” Stating it that way doesn’t put the other person on the spot. When people don’t feel threatened, they’re more open to your side of the story. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.

your problems predate your unemployment. There is help available in your city. Once you understand why you feel “unworthy of affection” you’ll be able to improve your selfesteem. There are better days ahead. Dear Abby: My office was relocated recently, a bit farther away from home than the old one. My new commute involves riding public transportation and then a shared shuttle van. One of my co-workers, “Phil,” rides the same shuttle. He always waits for me to get off the shuttle so he can walk with me to the office. He seems nice enough and well-meaning, but my mornings are my time to prepare myself for the day. He also occasionally touches my arm, which makes me uncomfortable. He also talks about personal things I would rather not hear about. I would prefer to walk without him, but there is no other

way to get to the office. I have debated being 10 minutes late to work each day, but then I would need to stay 10 minutes later and it would be much harder for me to catch the later shuttle. What do I do? Tell Phil I don’t want to walk with him? Walk faster? Go in later? — Uncomfortable in South San Francisco Dear Uncomfortable: Tell Phil that as you walk to the office you meditate — that it helps “center” you in preparing for the workday. Explain that when he talks to you or touches you it’s distracting, so you would prefer that he go on ahead. It’s the truth, and he should accommodate you.

Reader finds radon gas in basement rec room Dear Dr. Gott: After 14 years of using our finished basement rec room on a daily basis, I have discovered the presence of radon gas. The level ranges between 6 and 7. To disassemble the room is far too costly on our retirement income. Recent lung X-rays are OK, so what is our risk of cancer after all these years of daily exposure? Dear Reader: Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of uranium. It is found in almost all soils and permeates the air we breathe. It moves through the ground and into buildings and water supplies through cracks or holes in foundations and solid floors, through gaps in suspended flooring, around service pipes and through walls. It can enter through well water. Once inside a building, the radon is trapped and builds up to unhealthy levels. It can be found in schools, offices, homes and public buildings. Radon can’t be seen, tasted or smelled, yet reports indicate it causes lung cancer, killing thousands of people every year. Radon in the air is measured in picocuries per liter (pCi/L) of air. While ANY amount of this radioactive gas is bad, the average level in homes across the United States is 1.3 and 0.4 in outside air. Nearly one in every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have high levels. A level ranging from 6 to 7 definitely requires attention. To begin with, I wouldn’t take one sample test result as gospel. Have a second test to verify the accuracy of your first reading. Then have your water tested. Radon isn’t generally a problem when the source is surface water. The problems result when the source is groundwater or generates through a public water supply that uses groundwater. There are several methods you can use to reduce the radon levels in your home that shouldn’t break the bank. You can perform a short-term home test by yourself that takes up to three days to perform. Longterm testing can last more than 90 days. Some methods can reduce levels by up to 99 percent, with extremely high levels being brought down to an acceptable range. If you performed one short-term test, I recommend you follow up with either another one or change to a longterm test for verification. The most common one is known as soil-suction radon reduction, which uses a fan-and-vent pipe system to pull radon from beneath your rec room and vent it outside. Even houses with crawl spaces should benefit from this process. By sealing visible cracks and openings around entrance pipes, greater reductions will be realized. One plus is that there will be no major changes or construction costs involved. Check with your local or state offices for the names of certified contractors who can provide good advice and direction if you prefer to take that route.

ASK THE DOCTOR Dr. PETER

GOTT

And now, on to the main issue — your risk after all these years. I find it hard to believe that you would or could simply stay away from a room you have obviously enjoyed for 14 years. You have already had a chest X-ray that failed to reveal any questionable areas. That’s a good thing. But, because of potential dangers, I recommend you make an appointment with an oncologist for his or her opinion.
