Vicksburg police officers block Court Street at its intersection with Wood Street Wednesday afternoon following a twovehicle wreck that sent six people to the hospital. Investigating officer Jonathan Tillman said a Cadillac Escalade driven by Armitress Alford, 41, 1641 W. 14th St., Riviera Beach, Fla., rounded the corner from Court to Wood and turned too sharply before the SUV flipped onto its side as it approached a City of Vicksburg truck driven by James Butler, 48, 160 Curry Road. Alford and her passenger, Lynette Henderson, 36, 13545 Woodmont St., Detroit, and Butler and his three passengers, Leron Beeman, 31, 2707 Oak St.; Cedric Coleman, 31, 7093 U.S. 61 South; and Courtney Sanders, 26, 388 Moore Pit Road, were all taken to River Region Medical Center. Hospital spokesman Allen Karel said this morning they were all treated and released.
Jailed man’s DNA could be tested in Cary killings By Tish Butts firstname.lastname@example.org Nearly a year after a Cary mother and daughter were found knifed to death in their home, Sharkey County officials are trying to find matches to DNA found at the scene. Officials are expecting a court order to subpoena the DNA of a Washington County jail inmate — the second “person of interest” in the September 2009 knifing death of Karitha Carroll, 31, and 3-year-old Jamaya Carroll, Sharkey County Sheriff Lindsey Adams Jr. said.
Karitha Carroll was found on a bedroom floor with multiple stab wounds to her chest on Sept. 23, and the toddler was found in the bed with multiple slash wounds to her neck. Adams said DNA from a large number of family members, friends and other people has been tested against the evidence. “We haven’t been able to match it to anyone,” he said. The inmate, whose name the sheriff would not release, has been questioned by Sharkey officials and remains in jail on unrelated charges, Adams said. The
State decision-maker in energy, CofC told By Danny Barrett Jr. email@example.com The state has the power to decide whether central Mississippi could become a player in compressed natural gas, a spokesman for one of three pipelines crossing Warren County said Wednesday. “It’s up to Mississippi,” said Allen Fore, spokesman for Kinder Morgan, following an address to the VicksburgWarren County Chamber of Commerce. Kinder Morgan is the contract operator of the Port of Vicksburg and is a partner in the joint venture that put the Midcontinent Express pipeline into full service this year. The line burrows under 500 miles of territory from southeast Oklahoma to eastern Alabama, pulling 1.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas daily from the underground Barnett Shale in northeast Texas. Its tie-in in Butler, Ala., hooks
into lines that serve the Atlantic Seaboard. “These federally regulated projects are called openaccess lines,” Fore said. “Our shippers need to have firm shipper commitments before you construct these. So, yeah, there’s a need for this gas.” In a process, natural gas is compressed to less than 1 percent of its normal volume. The process is commonplace in Asia and South America, but is limited in the United States to a few outlets in the West. Natural gas for residential use in Vicksburg is purchased by the city on the open market. Private companys provide gas service for residents in nonmunicipal Warren County and some areas in south Vicksburg. Fore said the gas that will pass under 13.08 miles of Vicksburg and Warren County could be tapped See Pipeline, Page A9.
sheriff said authorities gained interest in the man after discovering his red Ford Mustang matched the description of a car seen in the area at the time of the knifing. “We spoke with his wife, and she led us to him,” said Adams. “She had heard he had dealings with a young lady in Cary, which was Karitha’s hometown.” Washington County Sheriff Milton Gaston said the 40-year-old inmate has been in the jail since April this year on a $250,000 bond for an aggravated assault See Killings, Page A9.

WASHINGTON — Prospects are bleak for fixing Social Security’s financial problems as the government retirement insurance program celebrates its 75th anniversary this week. Many Democrats adamantly oppose any cut in benefits to reduce cost and some won’t accept a gradual increase in the retirement age, something that was done in the last overhaul in 1983. Republicans say an increase in Social Security taxes is out of the question, even for the wealthy. Unless Congress acts, Social Security’s combined retirement and disability trust funds are expected to run out of money in 2037. At that point, Social Security will collect enough in payroll taxes to cover about three-fourths of the benefits. The rhetoric is creating a tough environment for President Barack Obama’s bipartisan fiscal commission to come up with recommendations to improve the government’s troubled finances. Obama says everything should be on the table, and the comSee Problems, Page A9.
No date set for schools’ boss to arrive By Pamela Hitchins firstname.lastname@example.org
More than two weeks after being appointed superintendent of the Vicksburg Warren School District, Dr. Elizabeth Duran Swinford remains without a Dr. Elizabeth contract Swinford and an official start date. The district’s trustees met in a called, closed session for 85 minutes Wednesday night with their attorney, Briggs Hopson, also a member of the state Senate. “No action on any of the items was taken,” District 2 Trustee Zelmarine Murphy announced after the meeting, which included a meal provided by school personnel. Murphy is board president. The selection of Swinford came on a 3-2 vote on July 27 after a three-month search organized by an executive placement firm. She’s to follow Dr. James Price, who retired June 30. Murphy and District 3 Trustee Jim Stirgus Jr. cast the dissenting votes, See VWSD, Page A9.

Worker attacked at doughnut shop A doughnut shop employee who had just arrived at work at 3:56 this morning was hit on the head with a handgun after he told a would-be robber that he did not have a key to open the cash register. The victim was treated for a cut on the forehead at the scene, Shipley Do-Nuts on Halls Ferry Road, Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said. The assailant was described by the victim as a 5-foot-10 slender black man wearing all black and a ski mask. The man fired a shot inside the building and another through the window just after he left, Stewart said. The victim did not require hospital treatment, Stewart said.

Gulf leaders wary over wavering on final plug NEW ORLEANS (AP) — With the oil well that had been spewing into the Gulf of Mexico sealed from the top and BP PLC and federal officials pondering whether the final plug is needed, local officials fear Washington is shifting its focus from what remains a crisis of unknown proportions. The final stretch of a relief well is being drilled so the crippled well can be permanently sealed deep underground with more mud and cement in what’s known as a “bottom kill,” though bad weather delayed that work into next week. However, officials now say they may not need to finish it. And the federal government’s point man for the spill response, retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, hopes he may be able to step down from his post in the next couple of months so long as there’s no risk of BP’s well leaking again. “This is going to be a longterm situation,” Jefferson Parish Council Chairman John Young said. “I think it’s way too early for the federal government to have a ‘mission accomplished’ type of attitude.” Work on the final kill to the well has been postponed by bad weather blowing through the region. Crews drilling relief wells to the gusher have stopped their work, and will need about four days to finish once the weather passes, Allen said Wednesday.
Allen said testing still needs to be done before a decision is made on whether the bottom kill is needed. BP and the federal government will check to see whether the cement pumped in through the top went down into the reservoir, came back up and plugged the space between the inner piping and the outer casing. If so, the bottom kill might not be necessary. “We think it’s a low probability event, but we can’t rule it out,” Allen said. Allen, who has served in his role since May 1, also hopes he may be able to step down from his post by late September or early October, handing off the responsibility. The discussion of a possible departure, though, raised the ire of some officials who say Washington is too eager to turn the page on the spill. “Are they planning on closing up shop? Absolutely. Am I sad Thad Allen is going to be gone? Absolutely not,” said Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser, who has criticized much of the government’s response as lacking a sense of urgency. But Allen’s departure, whenever it comes, may simply signal that the response has entered a new phase, going from crisis response to longterm recovery, Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts said.
Exploratory well blows near La. Highway 70 PAINCOURTVILLE, La. (AP) — A 7,200-foot exploratory oil and gas well blew, forcing the evacuation of six homes and the closure of a 2-mile stretch of La. 70 in Assumption Parish, authorities said. State police said the Mantle Oil and Gas LLC well blew Wednesday morning and continued spewing a brownish
mist of oil, gas and brine about 200 feet in the air throughout the day and into the evening. Mantle Oil is the well operator and is based in Friendswo o d , Texa s , o u t s i d e Houston. Trooper Bryan Zeringue said that getting the well under control could take from two to 10 days. No one was injured in the blowout.
BATON ROUGE (AP) — The so-called “Granddad Bandit” suspected of robbing banks in 13 states eluded authorities for about two years even as he stayed in plain, unremarkable sight. Michael Francis Mara, 52, had recently moved into a modest home in Baton Rouge with his new wife, a schoolteacher. She told neighbors about his frequent business trips around the country. But authorities said he is connected to a string of 25 robberies beginning in Richmond, Va., in 2008 and passing through Alabama, Texas, Georgia, Arkansas, Kansas, New York, Florida, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri — but not Louisiana. The trail ended Wednesday when police and FBI agents acting on a tip surrounded his home and he surrendered peacefully after a six-hour standoff. Last week, the FBI began posting pictures of the “Granddad Bandit” on billboards across the country, saying he was connected to a string of robberies dating back to a 2008 holdup of a SunTrust Bank in downtown Richmond. U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride in the Eastern District of Virginia credited the billboards with helping catch Mara. According to an FBI affidavit filed Friday in federal court in Virginia, the FBI received a tip last week from someone who identified Mara as the robber and gave authorities photographs to match to bank surveillance videos. A hat, eyeglasses and wristwatch were among the items that appeared to be identical between the photographs and surveillance footage, officials said. The documents say Mara had worked — and may still work — for a vehicle transportation company, giving him the ability to easily travel to other states. Earlier this year, Mara rented a car for 52 days and logged 9,669 miles, the affidavit says.
was going out of town, and now that I think about it, everywhere he went, banks were robbed,” Hunt said, listing trips to Tennessee and Arkansas among those she was told about. Hunt said Mara acted as though he had a law enforcement background, and she insisted Mara’s wife couldn’t have known about the robberies her husband allegedly committed. “She absolutely knew nothing,” Hunt said. “I’m sure she’s just as baffled as everyone else is.” Officials said Mara would be placed in the custody of the U.S. Marshal’s Service and
appear before a magistrate judge in Baton Rouge before being transferred to Virginia to face the federal charges. If convicted of the Virginia bank robbery, he faces 20 years in prison. It was unclear if the robber was actually a grandfather.

During that time, three robberies in three different states were connected to the “Granddad Bandit.” The rest of his background wasn’t immediately known.

Myths aside, precautions are necessary Ever hear the term “dog days”? Back when Julius Caesar had reason to avoid the steps of the senate, his fellow Romans believed that Sirius, the dog star, was the source of the oppressive heat that struck in mid- to late summer. They thought the terrible heat made men crazy, as well as lazy; the ground dry; the rivers turgid, and their beasts of burden more likely to seek out a cool place to snooze than shoulder a load. Today, modern science has debunked the theory that Sirius is the source of all that fiery summer heat and lethargy, but the dog days of summer are still hot, dry and entirely miserable, especially for those who don’t have a way to cool off. With temperatures lately soaring over the 100-degree mark and sometimes more considering the heat index, now is a good time to check on those who might need
help staying cool. The elderly are particularly vulnerable when the thermometer rises and are often reticent about asking for assistance. Relatives, neighbors and churches should monitor those who may need help when the mercury climbs. Pets are also at high risk during these scintillating days. Animals kept outdoors need plenty of water and shade, with shelter for when it rains. Dogs tied up outside without water can perish in a short amount of time in this kind of heat. Pet owners should also be careful not to leave their animals in parked vehicles. Pets can suffer irreversible damage after being exposed to high temperatures for only a few minutes. And it goes without saying that children should not be left unattended in any situation that might expose them to dangerous heat. These days are great for water
sports or simply cooling one’s heels and watching the kids play in the sprinkler. Outdoor labor can’t always be avoided. Some jobs can’t be put on hold. But as a rule, it’s important to approach work in this heat the same way one would approach doing anything else in it: Wear loose-fitting clothes that allow the sweat to evaporate and brimmed hats whenever possible, remain wellhydrated and take frequent breaks. Be aware of the signs of heat stroke: Confusion and dry, hot skin are among the primary symptoms. Take quick action if heat stroke is suspected. Even though Sirius might not be responsible for the blazing summer weather that is forcing electric bills through the roof, the slightly cooler starry nights are a great time to view the dog star, while avoiding the heat of a hot summer’s day.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler
Women face horrors wherever cowards rule “Live our values,” Gen. David Petraeus wrote recently to troops in Afghanistan. “This is what distinguishes us from our enemies.” Unfortunately, this is also what distinguishes us from many of our “friends.” This culture-chasm is what makes the infidel struggle for hearts and minds across Islamic lands so recklessly, wastefully futile, something I was once again reminded of on reading Time magazine’s cover story featuring 18-year-old Aisha. Aisha is a lovely Afghan girl whose husband and brother-in-law, on instructions from a local judge and Taliban commander, sliced off her ears and nose and left her dying to set an example for other wives thinking of running away from abusive in-laws. Only her discovery by U.S. troops saved Aisha’s life. But where was Aisha’s father? Where was her family? Where were her town’s elders? Where was Hamid Karzai? Turns out her family did nothing to protect her from the Taliban, Time writes. Why? The magazine describes a mixture of fear and shame that I hope still strikes the average American family as so foreign as extra-terrestrials. Time further explains: “A girl who runs
It’s not only in Afghanistan where Islamic men have dominion over Islamic women. It is wherever Islamic law, de facto or de jure, empowers them.
away is automatically considered a prostitute ... and families that allow them back home would be subject to widespread ridicule.” When Aisha’s father enticed her home with promises of a new husband, the girl refused because she was fearful that her family would sell her into slavery, or murder her. Similar scenarios play out beyond the wilds of the Taliban zone wherever Sharia culture flowers, an expanding zone that now includes urban centers of the Western world — from Berlin to London to Atlanta to Calgary — where previously unimagined assaults on women and girls are taking place almost exclusively from within Islamic communities. This gruesome fact renders Time’s
cover line — “What Happens if We Leave Afghanistan” — absurdly provincial in scope. That is, it’s not only in Afghanistan where Islamic men have dominion over Islamic women. It is wherever Islamic law, de facto or de jure, empowers them. It is into this brutish society that American and NATO troops have again been ordered to mix, this time by Gen. Petraeus who believes, as a Pentagon release put it, “meeting and understanding the people is the main mission for military forces.” Calling for more interaction with “the people,” Petraeus told his forces: “Take off your sunglasses. Situational awareness can only be gained by interacting face to face, not separated by ballistic glass or Oakleys.”
This last bit inspired a note from a Marine mom who reminded me that eye protection is what defends our soldiers from blast-borne fragments that cause blindness or brain injuries. Petraeus seems bent on stripping our men bare, almost literally, to make them symbols of a non-threatening openness that he and other counterinsurgency zealots insist will win what he calls “the decisive terrain” — aka, the Afghan people. Of course, that same “terrain” includes not only poor Aisha, but also her cowardly, complicit father, her murderous in-laws, her acquiescent town elders, and corrupto-crat Karzai, whose silence on the plight of women worries observers already concerned about Kabul’s and Washington’s overtures to the Taliban. Meanwhile, as one female Afghan parliamentarian estimated to Time, fewer than a dozen of the 68 female parliamentarians in Afghanistan support women’s rights. Time writes: “The rest — proxies for conservative men who boosted them into power — aren’t interested.” Aren’t interested? Incredible — at least to people who believe that for a battered bride, no-fault divorce
beats slavery and murder. To Shariaculturalists, however, such “women’s rights” violate their code. This is something that Westerners, convinced they are born to be loved and envied, can’t grasp. “Is America going to abandon the women of Afghanistan?” an overwrought Christiane Amanpour demanded of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on ABC, brandishing Time’s Aisha edition. It is Islam that abandoned these women, Christiane, not America, and not just in Afghanistan. Whether prisoners of Islamic law or promoters of Islamic law, such women are beyond the reach of America’s ineffectual attempts at “nation-building” — unless, of course, the nation being built is also wholly de-Sharified. Short of an intergalactic missionary movement enforced by robo-conquistadors, that ain’t going to happen. “Live your values,” says Gen. Petraeus. “This is what distinguishes us from our enemies.” Amen, general. But how about living them — and guarding them against Sharia — at home? •

smart money Q: The recession hit me hard, so I did a voluntary repossession on my automobile. My salary had been decreased, and the car payments became more then I could handle. I had the car for three years of a four-year loan. Since the repossession, I have been able to keep up with my other bills now. The repossession did appear on my credit report, but I am disputing the amount on there. The car was sold, but it said I still owed $15,000. How can that be? I had originally purchased the car for $35,000, and I only owed one more year’s BRUCE worth of payments. Since the car was sold, I have not had any contact with anyone about collecting “$15,000.” I had applied for a loan, and all of a sudden now I’m getting phone calls
from debt collectors for this balance, and a lawsuit will be filed with an attorney if I don’t pay, etc. I have never wanted to file bankruptcy, but I also do not intend to pay this old debt, especially that amount. I have requested proof of what the car was sold for but have not received anything. Is there anything I can do? — B.R., via e-mail A: Unfortunately, these types of things just don’t go away and can hang on for a long period of time. When you do a voluntary repossession, the lender will then sell the car, and whatever the deficiency is, you will be responsible for that. These types of debts get handed around from one credit company to another, and these debts ordinarily can be refiled and just don’t go away. I’d suggest that before you arbitrarily file bankruptcy, you discuss this matter with an attorney. Just bear in mind that it’s not going to go away by itself. •

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is providing $3 billion to unemployed homeowners facing foreclosure in the nation’s toughest job markets. The Treasury Department said Wednesday it will send $2 billion to 17 states that have unemployment rates higher than the national average for a year. They will use the money for programs to aid unemployed homeowners. Another $1 billion will go to a new program being run by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. It will provide homeowners
with emergency zero-interest rate loans of up to $50,000 for up to two years. The administration was required to launch the HUD emergency loan program by the financial regulatory bill signed by President Barack Obama last month. The Treasury is using money from the $700 billion Wall Street bailout to pay its share of the program. Officials said they won’t know until next month how many people are likely to be helped. California will get the largest share for the Treasury program, at $476 million. Florida
is in line for nearly $239 million. Illinois will receive $166 million and Ohio will receive $149 million. The Obama administration has rolled out numerous attempts to tackle the foreclosure crisis but has made only a small dent in the problem. More than 40 percent, or about 530,000 homeowners, have fallen out of the administration’s main effort to assist those facing foreclosure. That program, known as Making Home Affordable, provides lenders with incentives to reduce mortgage payments. So far, it has provided perma-
nent help to about 390,000 homeowners, or 30 percent of the 1.3 million who have enrolled since March 2009. Also receiving money are Michigan, $129 million; Georgia, $127 million; North Carolina, $121 million; New Jersey, $112 million; Indiana, $83 million and Tennessee, $81 million. Alabama is due to receive $61 million, South Carolina, $59 million; Kentucky, $56 million; Oregon, $49 million; Mississippi, $38 million; Nevada, $34 million; Rhode Island, $14 million; and Washington, D.C., $8 million.
Watchdog panel cites global impact of U.S. bailout WASHINGTON — The $700 billion U.S. bailout program launched in response to the global economic meltdown had a far greater impact overseas than other countries’ financial rescue plans did on the U.S., according to a new report from a congressional watchdog. Billions of dollars in U.S. rescue funds wound up in big banks in France, Germany and other nations. That was probably inevitable because of the structure of the Treasury Department’s program, the Congressional Oversight Panel says in a new report issued today. The U.S. program aimed to stabilize the financial system by injecting money into as many banks as possible, including those with substantial operations overseas. Most other countries, by contrast, focused their efforts more narrowly on banks in their nations that usually lacked major U.S. operations. But the report says that if the U.S. had gotten more data on which foreign banks would benefit the most, the government might have been able to ask those countries to share some of the cost.
GM posts $1.33B profit, a sign of strength DETROIT — General
BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Motors Co. said today it made $1.33 billion in the second quarter, a sign it’s getting healthier as it prepares to sell stock to the public. It was the second straight quarterly profit for the Detroit automaker, which made $865 million in the first quarter, and sets the stage for GM to file paperwork soon to start the public stock sale process. CEO Ed Whitacre said last week that the company is eager to sell shares in an initial public offering so it can end its dependence on the government and pay off $43.3 billion in bailout funds that were converted into a majority stake in the company. Whitacre wants the company to shed its “Government Motors” moniker because it’s hurting sales and the company’s image. Whitacre said today he’s stepping down Sept. 1. He will be replaced by GM board member Daniel Akerson, the managing director and head of global buyout of The Carlyle Group.
disappointing earnings and economic news flowed in. The Dow Jones industrial average fell more than 60 points after the Labor Department reported that the number of people filing for unemployment benefits for the first time rose last week to 484,000. The gain was small at 2,000, but economists had expected the number to drop. The news pointed to continuing weakness in the labor market, yet another sign that the economic recovery is weakening. The latest earnings reports added to the market’s darkening view of the economy.

Problems Continued from Page A1. mission’s co-chairmen — a Republican and a Democrat — have asked for civil discourse. Not likely. Social Security has been, is and will continue to be potentially deadly for the career of any politician who dares touch it. While Obama’s commission was holding its latest meeting, dozens of House Democrats gathered on the steps of the Capitol to accuse Republicans of trying to wreck Social Security by creating private accounts, an idea with little support in Congress since former President George W. Bush unsuccessfully tried it. “Probably the months before an election are not the time to try to negotiate Social Security,” said John Rother, executive vice president of AARP. The commission’s proposals are due in December, after congressional elections in November. Despite the rhetoric, many experts think policymakers eventually will settle on a compromise: small cuts in future benefits coupled with small tax increases.
PRECISION FORECAST “You could put 10 moderates in a room and they could come up with a package in a day that solved the long-term problem and combined tax increases and spending cuts,” said William Gale, an adviser to President George H. W. Bush’s Council of Economic Advisers and now co-director of the Tax Policy Center. “It’s not that hard to do.” Social Security’s short-term finances are being hurt by a recession that shed more than 8 million jobs, reducing revenue from the payroll taxes that support the program. Social Security’s longterm finances will be strained as the 78 million baby boomers reach retirement age — and live longer as life expectancy increases. For the first time since the 1980s, Social Security is paying out more money in benefits than it collects in payroll taxes. The program is projected to post surpluses again in 2012 through 2014 but will return to permanent deficits in 2015, its trustees said in their annual report last week. The disability program is in even worse shape. The dis-
ability trust fund is projected to be exhausted by 2018, meaning Congress will have to act soon to address it. The combined trust funds have built up a $2.5 trillion surplus over the past 25 years. But the federal government has borrowed that money over the years to spend on other programs. The government must now start borrowing money from public debt markets — adding to the federal budget deficit — to repay Social Security. Over the next decade, the federal government will pay Social Security more than $1.5 trillion in interest, though the transfers are essentially an accounting procedure, switching money from one government account to another. President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act into law on Aug. 14, 1935. This year, more than 53 million people receive a total of $700 billion in benefits. Retirement benefits average $1,100 a month and disabled workers get an average of $1,065. In 75 years, 122 million
people — one-fourth of the U.S. population — will be drawing benefits. Social Security is financed by a 6.2 percent payroll tax on wages below $106,800. The tax is paid by workers and matched by employers. Older Americans can apply for early retirement benefits, starting at age 62. They qualify for full benefits if they wait until they turn 66, a threshold that is gradually increasing to 67 for people born in 1960 or later. Social Security would be made solvent for another 75 years if payroll taxes were increased by about 1 percentage point for both workers and employers. It would also be fixed if Congress started taxing all wages, not just those below $106,800. About 23 percent of the shortfall would be gone if Congress gradually increased the full retirement age from 67 to 68, according to the Senate Special Committee on Aging. Nearly a third of the shortfall would disappear if it was gradually increased to 70. House Republican Leader John Boehner of Ohio
recently suggested increasing the full retirement age to 70. Democrats slammed Boehner, even though House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., made a similar suggestion in a speech the week before. “It’s an important program for millions of Americans, tens of millions of Americans, and if we don’t fix it, it will not be there,” Boehner said later. “I understand that these subjects get to be rather sensitive, and especially in an election year. I was not at all surprised by the attacks that came my way.” Among the first to attack Boehner was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. She was asked later if she was hamstringing Obama’s fiscal commission by publicly opposing an increase in the retirement age. “That would be my goal, but I don’t think I have that much influence in what they do,” Pelosi said. “They are an independent commission appointed by the president. They have to do what they have to do.”
range at $110,000 to $140,000 annually. Price was paid $104,000 for two years, a salary that increased over his seven years to $140,000. Swinford, wrapping up her duties as assistant superintendent for human resources in East Baton Rouge Parish before moving to Vicksburg, was reportedly named along with the EBR school district, former and current administrators and a Los Angeles-based teacher-recruitment firm in a class-action
lawsuit filed in California on behalf of teachers hired and brought to Louisiana from the Philippines. Swinford said last week she and the district were awaiting details on the suit, but that the district had not done business for two to three years with the firm, Universal Placement International, Inc. “We are aware of it, but all districts have litigation,”
Murphy said. “School districts all over the country have personnel involved in litigation. This is not a particular concern of the board at this time.” Stirgus, however, brought at least two news accounts of the suit to the meeting. Swinford previously said she hoped to be in the district to begin work either Aug. 23 or Aug. 30, depending, among other things, upon her suc-
cess in finding housing. She was in Vicksburg over the weekend, and spoke briefly at the citywide pep rally Saturday. Swinford could not be reached today. Also Wednesday, the trustees accepted the resignation of Grove Street teacher Lucius Chambers.

Another potential suspect, 45-year-old Robert Lee King, was spotted in the Rolling Fork and Hollandale area about the time the Carrolls were found dead, Adams said. King, a U.S. Marshals fugitive since 2005, is wanted for a 2005 killing
and attempted murder in Memphis. He said he expects to talk with agents from the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations again next week about the case.

easily by a provider. “If they have an interest in accessing this line, they can,” Fore said, adding a metering station can be built to access gas off the Midcontinent for about $5 million. Besides proximity to ample supply from the largest known natural gas shales, in the Rocky Mountains and the Northeast, economics will drive the likelihood, Fore said. “Is that a good investment
to invest in that? Do they have a market to tap into this gas? That’s all a business and economic decision, but it’s possible,” Fore said. Estimates presented during Fore’s address showed economic impact hitting about $11.1 million in property taxes it will pay to seven Mississippi counties, including $733,000 projected to Warren County. Hinds County, where a $60 million compressor sta-

Long, hot summer of fire, floods fits predictions NEW YORK (AP) — Floods, fires, melting ice and feverish heat: From smoke-choked Moscow to water-soaked Pakistan and the High Arctic, the planet seems to be having a midsummer breakdown. It’s not just a portent of things to come, scientists say, but a sign of troubling climate change already under way. The weather-related cataclysms of July and August fit patterns predicted by climate scientists, the Geneva-based World Meteorological Organization says — although those scientists always shy from tying individual disasters directly to global warming. The experts now see an urgent need for better ways to forecast extreme events like Russia’s heat wave and wildfires and the record deluge devastating Pakistan. They’ll discuss such tools in meetings this month and next in Europe and America, under United Nations, U.S. and British government sponsorship. “There is no time to waste,” because societies must be equipped to deal with global warming, says British government climatologist Peter Stott. He said modelers of climate systems are “very keen” to develop supercomputer modeling that would enable more detailed linking of cause and effect as a warming world shifts jet streams and other atmospheric currents. Those changes can wreak weather havoc. The U.N.’s network of climate scientists — the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change — has long predicted that rising global temperatures would produce more frequent and intense heat waves, and more intense rainfalls. In its latest assessment, in 2007, the Nobel Prizewinning panel went beyond that. It said these trends “have already been observed,” in an increase in heat waves since 1950, for example.

1 dead, hundreds evacuated after flooding in Iowa DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Three nights of heavy rainfall caused Iowa creeks and rivers to swell, forcing hundreds of residents from their homes and killing a 16-year-old girl when three cars were swept away by a torrent of water on a rural road. In Ames, flooding contributed to a water main break that forced the city to shut off water to its roughly 55,000 residents and left Iowa State University’s basketball arena under 4 to 5 feet of water.
Still, climatologists generally refrain from blaming warming for this drought or that flood, since so many other factors also affect the day’s weather. Stott and NASA’s Gavin Schmidt at the Goddard Institute of Space Studies in New York, said it’s better to think in terms of odds: Warming might double the chances for a heat wave, for example. The WMO did point out,
The flooding in central and eastern Iowa Wednesday followed three straight nights of strong thunderstorms. After a brief respite for much of the state, more thunderstorms were possible Friday and Saturday, according to the National Weather Service. Divers found the body of Jessica Nichole Webb, of Altoona, near the submerged cars in Mud Creek Wednesday afternoon, more than 10 hours after she disappeared.
however, that this summer’s events fit the international scientists’ projections of “more frequent and more intense extreme weather events due to global warming.” In fact, in key cases they’re a perfect fit:
Russia It’s been the hottest summer ever recorded in Russia with
Moscow temperatures topping 100 degrees Fahrenheit for the first time. The drought there has sparked hundreds of wildfires in forests and dried peat bogs, blanketing western Russia with a toxic smog. Moscow’s death rate has doubled to 700 people a day. The 2007 IPCC report predicted a doubling of disastrous droughts in Russia this century and cited studies foreseeing catastrophic fires during dry years. It also said Russia would suffer large crop losses.
Pakistan The heaviest monsoon rains on record — 12 inches in one 36-hour period — have sent rivers rampaging over huge swaths of countryside. It’s left 14 million Pakistanis homeless or otherwise affected, and killed 1,500. The government calls it the worst natural disaster in the nation’s history. A warmer atmosphere can hold — and discharge — more water. The 2007 IPCC report said rains have grown heavier for 40 years over north Pak-
China is witnessing its worst floods in decades, the WMO says, particularly in the northwest province of Gansu. There, floods and landslides last weekend killed at least 1,117 people and left more than 600 missing, feared swept away or buried beneath mud and debris. The IPCC reported in 2007 that rains had increased in northwest China by up to 33 percent since 1961, and floods nationwide had increased sevenfold since the 1950s. It predicted still more frequent flooding this century.
Arctic Researchers last week spotted a 100-square-mile chunk of ice calved off from the great Petermann Glacier in Greenland’s far northwest. It was the most massive ice island to break away in the Arctic in a half-century of observation. The huge iceberg appeared just five months after an international scientific team published a report saying ice loss from the Greenland ice sheet is expanding up its northwest coast from the south. Changes in the ice sheet “are happening fast, and we are definitely losing more ice mass than we had anticipated,” said one of the scientists, NASA’s Isabella Velicogna. In the Arctic Ocean itself, the summer melt of the vast ice cap has reached unprecedented proportions. Satellite data show the ocean area covered by ice last month was the second-lowest ever recorded for July. The melting of land ice into the oceans is causing about 60 percent of the accelerating rise in sea levels worldwide.

Remains identified as missing soldiers OKLAHOMA CITY — The remains of two U.S. Army soldiers, one from Oklahoma and one from Nebraska, who had been missing in Vietnam for nearly 40 years, have been identified, the U.S. Department of Defense announced Wednesday. The bodies of Chief Warrant Officer Donald Wann of Shawnee, Okla., and 1st Lt. Paul Magers of Sidney, Neb., were identified through DNA testing by the Armed Forces DNA Identification Laboratory in Hawaii. Wann and Magers were killed June 1, 1971, when the AH-1 Cobra helicopter they were flying as part of a rescue mission was shot down in Quang Tri Province, South Vietnam, the military said.
Man arrested at airport in stabbings spree ATLANTA — A possible suspect in a string of 20 stabbings that terrorized people across three states and left five dead was arrested at an airport as he tried to board a plane for Israel, officials said today. The man was arrested late Wednesday and was being held on unrelated charges, police in Leesburg, Va., said. He was arrested at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport where he was trying to board a Delta Air Lines flight to Tel Aviv, Israel, said Rafael Lemaitre, a spokesman at U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The man has ties to Flint, Mich., where the attacks began May 24, and to Leesburg, the site of three similar attacks last week, Leesburg Police Officer Chris Jones said. He is an Israeli citizen who is in the U.S. legally, according to a law enforcement official.

than anything to make sure I was 100 percent for this preseason game tomorrow. I’ll be full go tomorrow in the preseason game.” Bush split the running back duties last year with Pierre Thomas and Mike Bell while leading the Saints to their first NFL championship. Bell signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as a free agent in the offseason, and Thomas has already shaken off a left wrist injury that briefly knocked him out of practice last week. Patriots linebacker Tully Banta-Cain said that having running backs with different styles is one reason the Saints have been so successful. “When teams have threeheaded monsters or twoheaded monsters in the backfield, you’ve really got to know who’s back there
HOUSTON — After getting blown out in the first game and needing late rallies to win the other two, Braves manager Bobby Cox was pleased to escape Houston with a series victory. Omar Infante drove in the go-ahead run with a 10thinning double and Brian McCann added a grand slam later in the inning to give Atlanta an 8-2 win over the Astros on Wednesday. “It was a good series,” Cox said. “We took it. That’s all you can ask. A sweep would have been great, but we almost got swept Brian ourselves.” McCann Infante’s hit bounced low on the wall in left field and scored Rick Ankiel to put Atlanta back on top 3-2, giving closer Billy Wagner (6-2) the win after he blew a save in the ninth. Brandon Lyon (6-5) intentionally walked Melky Cabrera to set up a run-scoring single by Alex Gonzalez, and McCann’s pinch hit slam off Jeff Fulchino put the game out of reach. The Braves trailed 2-1 on Tuesday night, but won 4-2 after a pair of homers in the ninth. “As long as our team is winning ... that’s what it’s all about,” said Wagner, the former Astros pitcher who will retire after this season. “That’s not how I guess you’d draw it up, but you don’t have much you can do about it. But a win’s a win and it’s good for us.” Braves starter Tommy Hanson gave up two hits and didn’t allow an earned run before being replaced by Jonny Venters, who walked one in a scoreless eighth before Wagner took over. Hunter Pence tied it 2-2 when he scored on a sacrifice fly by Chris Johnson off Wagner in the ninth inning.

Sidelines Russell drug case heads to grand jury
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — A judge sent the drug possession case against former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell to a grand jury Wednesday despite testimony that the codeine drink found at Russell’s home belonged to a longtime friend. District Judge Charles McKnight questioned the credibility of the testimony given by Marcus Stevenson, who said he made the codeine-laced drink found in a July 5 raid at Russell’s home. Mobile County Sheriff’s Deputy Johnny Thornton testified the orangecolored drink in Russell’s bedroom appeared freshly poured. Investigators said Russell, who was in the bedroom, told them it was his KoolAid. Thornton said it later tested positive for codeine. Thonton also said there were nine people in the house and a codeine bottle without a prescription was found in a cabinet. Stevenson testified at the hearing that he mixed the drink and didn’t make it for Russell.

Bush returns, Hamilton is out Third-string running back tears ACL in practice nfl
By The Associated Press FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Reggie Bush returned to practice after missing one session with cramps, and he might have become even more important for the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints on Wednesday. No. 3 running back Lynell Hamilton had to be helped off the field after tearing his right ACL during a joint practice against the New England Patriots, whom the Saints will play in the exhibition opener tonight. It will be New Orleans’ first game since beating the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 in Miami. Saints spokesman Greg Bensel said Hamilton, who had been effective on special teams and in short-yardage situations, has a torn ACL, an injury that usually requires a year to recover from.
On TV 6:30 p.m. WUFX New Orleans Saints vs. New England Patriots “It was something that was kind of a freak deal,” Payton said after the final practice. Hamilton, who turned 25 last week, crumpled to the turf midway through Wednesday morning’s practice. Trainers rushed out to attend to him, and a few minutes later he limped off the field with a trainer under each arm. Hamilton appeared in nine games last season, starting one, running 35 times for 125 yards and two touchdowns; he also caught five passes for 48 yards. “We saw a lot of him a year ago,” Payton said. “He
played quite a bit for us in the kicking game as well as on offense. He’s certainly a guy that factored in last year Lynell and contribHamilton uted quite a bit.” Bush tried to talk to Hamilton after the injury. “I’m hoping for the best and praying for him,” Bush said before the extent of the injury was known. Bush sat out the team portion of Tuesday afternoon’s practice without explanation, then said after practice on Wednesday that he was dehydrated and began cramping up. “Other than that, it was nothing serious,” he said. “Practicing today everything was fine. It was just a little bit more precautionary
Saints have a better chance than most to repeat Can the New Orleans Saints repeat last year’s magic Super Bowl title? It’s a question posed from Bourbon Street to the docks of Port LaFourche, from Mobile Bay to downtown Vicksburg. While history frowns upon it, the feat isn’t exactly impossible. Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were the last team to do it in 2003 and 2004. Four others managed to repeat since the league went to a 16-game regular season schedule in 1978. Most teams that win the Super Bowl are gutted by free agency like a freshly caught catfish ready for eating. But the Saints bucked that trend. The Saints lost only line-

backer Scott Fujita to the Cleveland Browns. Everyone else from last year’s team is back. The keys are simple. Keep Drew Brees healthy. Have the defense force a bucketload of turnovers like last season. Brees is on the cover of “Madden 11” this year, a moment that when it was announced gave Saints fans the willies. Gracing the cover
of the game usually doesn’t end well for the player. Examples of the “Madden jinx” include Shaun Alexander, who was coming off an MVP season for the Seattle Seahawks, and Michael Vick. Alexander was the 2007 cover man and broke his foot midway through that season, never returning to form. Vick graced the 2004 cover and broke his leg in a preseason game. Even Brett Favre, who graced the 2009 cover, got bit by the jinx as he tore his biceps late in the year after being traded to the New York Jets. But the Saints return their entire offensive line and Brees, after his shoulder surgery in 2006 to repair a torn labrum, has been unbelievably durable. So if anyone breaks the curse, it’ll be
Brees. As for the defense, Darren Sharper’s addition at safety and new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams were the main reasons why the unit improved into a ballhawking and pass-rushing machine. With both back, expect the trend to continue. Williams is the evil genius defensive counterpart of head coach Sean Payton, who took a paycut to get Williams to New Orleans before the season. The Saints forced 15 fumbles and picked off 26 passes, putting them in the top three in the league in takeaways. Another area that helps the Saints is the overall weakness of the NFC South Division. Only the archrival Atlanta Falcons present a true threat. With Carolina
and Tampa Bay mired in rebuilding years, it will be a two-team race. The Saints aren’t perfect, but in the NFL, who is? The Saints were near the bottom of the league against the run, yielding 4.5 yards per carry. They have a propensity to give up the big play, especially in the ground game. But if they get just a little stouter against the run and still rank in the tops of the NFL in total offense and takeaways, expect another Lombardi Trophy celebration on Bourbon Street this winter. •

Baseball Mets’ closer charged with assault after game NEW YORK — Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez was charged with third-degree assault late Wednesday night after scuffling with his father-in-law at Citi Field, police said. Rodriguez was arrested and being held at the ballpark early today, police said. His father-in-law was in a hospital with a scrape on his face and a bump on his head. “There was an incident at the ballpark between Francisco Rodriguez and his family. He was questioned by police and all other questions pertaining to this matter can be addressed to police,” Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz said. Several security guards, along with some women and children, were seen around the Mets’ family lounge near the clubhouse after New York’s 6-2 loss to Colorado. Rodriguez’s father-in-law had swelling above his right eyebrow.
NBA Thomas not returning to Knicks as a consultant NEW YORK — Isiah Thomas will not be returning to the New York Knicks after all. Thomas said in a statement he was declining a position as a consultant with the franchise he ran for 41⁄2 years because it may not be legal. “After speaking with commissioner Stern and Knicks executives, it has become apparent that my new agreement violates certain NBA bylaws,” Thomas said. “Because of this, I have decided to rescind my contract with the team.” Thus ends — at least for now — the surprising and controversial reunion between the Knicks and the frequent target of fans and media during his turbulent tenure at Madison Square Garden.
NASCAR Menard moving to RCR in 2011 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Paul Menard is taking his father’s sponsorship money to Richard Childress Racing next season, giving that organization the financial security it needs to expand to the NASCARmandated maximum of four cars. “When this opportunity to join RCR came about, it was a nobrainer,” Menard said Wednesday. RCR ran four cars last season, but let Casey Mears go at the end of the year when it failed to secure financing to keep that team running. As a four-car team, RCR struggled on the track and failed to put a single car in the 12-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

Gray, Pavin get in heated argument golf
Verbal tussle centers on Tiger Woods By Doug Ferguson AP golf writer SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — In an argument as acrimonious as any Ryder Cup match, a Golf Channel reporter pointed his finger at Corey Pavin’s chest and accused the U.S. captain of lying about comments that Tiger Woods will be picked for the team. Jim Gray approached Pavin after a news conference Wednesday, and they stood no more than a foot apart, facing off as if they were in the middle of a boxing ring. Pavin’s wife, Lisa, pulled out her mobile phone and recorded the conversation. Pavin said Gray called him “a liar” and said, “You’re going down.” As Gray turned to walk away, Pavin barked at him, “You’re just going to walk away?” They continued to argue, although not loud enough that their words could be heard by
about a half-dozen reporters. By golf’s genteel standards, this was quite the rumble. Gray reported Tuesday evening that Pavin told him he would pick Woods for the Ryder Cup if he didn’t make the team on his own at the PGA Championship. He quoted Pavin as saying — it was not on camera — “Of course I’m going to. He’s the best player in the world.” Pavin was so angry when he heard about this Wednesday morning that he tweeted while on the golf course that “Jim Gray has misquoted me re: picking Tiger. I never said such a thing and will not say a thing until 09/07.” Pavin is to announce his four captain’s picks on Sept. 7 in New York. The Golf Channel said in a
statement that it stands “100 percent behind the accuracy of Jim Gray’s report. As far as any subsequent conversation between Jim and Corey Pavin, it was meant to be private and should remain as such.” Gray had said on air earlier Wednesday after Pavin’s tweet that there was “not one part” of what Pavin said that had been misquoted. “And quite frankly, I happen to like Corey Pavin,” Gray said. “I’ve known him an awfully long time, and in this instance, he is being disingenuous and is not telling the truth.” Pavin said in his news conference that he spoke with Gray outside the locker room at Whistling Straits on Tuesday. “He asked me a few questions and his interpretation of what I said is incorrect,” Pavin said. “There’s nobody that’s promised any picks right now. It would be disrespectful to everybody that’s trying to make the team. I’ve got quite a few people I’m looking at. I would not disrespect any of the players that are potential players on the team, and obviously there was a misinterpretation of what I said. And that is an incorrect quote.”
Pavin became even more angry after Gray had left the room. “He called me a liar, which is one thing I don’t do,” Pavin said. “I said he was full of something. I’m not going to have someone call me a liar.” Pavin noted that he has been asked about Woods and the Ryder Cup since the start of the year, and he had never revealed any of his plans. “Of all the people I know in the media business, he would not be my first choice to tell that to,” Pavin said. “He wouldn’t be my second, third or fourth choice, either.” As for Woods? He can make this a moot point at Whistling Straits by playing well enough to earn his way onto the team. Woods likely will need to at least finish in the top 10 in the PGA Championship, where the points are worth double. “I think Tiger would be an exceptional addition to the team, and he’s certainly under considerable consideration,” Pavin said. “There’s a lot of guys that I’m looking at. Like I said, he’s definitely high on the list, and I’ll be looking at it for the next three weeks after this week.”
White Sox earn tie atop AL Central By The Associated Press
les. The two-time NL champions are 15-4 since July 22, but lost another player when Ross Gload left with a strained right groin.
John Danks pitched eight sharp innings and Chicago beat Minnesota 6-1 on Wednesday night to move back into a first-place tie in the AL Central with the Twins. Carlos Quentin homered in his second straight game while helping the White Sox draw even again after being knocked out of first place for the first time since July 10 with a 12-6 loss to the Twins on Tuesday. They fared better this time after dropping four of five, with a rare victory over a team that had won 18 of 23 against them. Danks (12-8) allowed one run and six hits. Quentin hit a two-run shot in the second off Glen Perkins (0-1) that made it 2-0.
Rockies 6, Mets 2 Melvin Mora hit a goahead grand slam with two outs in the eighth inning for Colorado. Angel Pagan hit a two-run homer in the first for the Mets.
Padres 8, Pirates 5 Kevin Correia took a onehit shutout into the seventh inning and Jerry Hairston Jr. hit a two-run home run to lead San Diego.
Giants 5, Cubs 4 Pat Burrell hit a go-ahead solo homer in the eighth inning after an earlier two-run single and Aaron Rowand also homered for San Francisco.
Yankees 7, Rangers 6 Marcus Thames hit a long homer then had the go-ahead RBI single in the ninth inning as New York rallied from five runs down for a split in the two-game series between the division leaders. Cliff Lee got a no-decision for the Rangers in his shortest stint in 10 starts. He struck out 11 in 61⁄3 innings of work. Thames’ grounder between shortstop and third base came after Derek Jeter had tied the game with a chopper past a drawn-in infield, an RBI single off Rangers rookie All-Star closer Neftali Feliz (3-3).
Orioles 3, Indians 1 Brad Bergesen pitched a two-hitter for his first win in nearly three months for surging Baltimore.
Red Sox 10, Blue Jays 1 Bill Hall hit two home runs, and Adrian Beltre and J.D.

and how to play them,” he said. “They’re a dynamic group and they can do a lot of things. They present different problems. Each one of them has a different style of running the ball, so you really have to know who you’re up against. Reggie’s a really fast explosive player and Pierre’s a stronger, downhill type of runner, so you’ve got the best of both worlds in their backfield. So it creates problems for the defense.” The Saints have looked around for running backs, including former Redskin Ladell Betts. Also on the roster are P.J. Hill and rookie Chris Ivory.
Pence singled on a grounder to third base before advancing to third on a single by Lee. Wagner retired the next two batters to send the game to extra innings. Ankiel walked with one out in the 10th before reaching second on an error by Pedro Feliz, who couldn’t handle the throw to first base. Lyon intentionally walked Eric Hinske before Infante’s goahead hit and the flood of runs that followed. “I didn’t make good pitches and they hit them,” Lyon said. “I just have to come back next time and make better pitches.” Houston closer Matt Lindstrom wasn’t available Wednesday after pitching

two straight days and dealing with a sore back. Cabrera doubled and scored on a groundout by Gonzalez to make it 1-0 in the first inning. Cabrera had advanced to third on a passed ball by catcher Jason Castro to set up the run, before Rodriguez struck out Matt Diaz to get out of that inning. Hanson didn’t allow a hit until Michael Bourn’s single leading off the fourth. Bourn stole second and tried to steal third, but got caught in a run down. Hanson dropped the throw while covering the base, though, allowing Bourn to return safely to second. “One of the most amazing things to see is Bourn in

the run down,” Pence said. “Typically, for anyone that is human and not Superman, when they get in a run down, they’re generally out. I don’t think anyone has a chance to get him and it came up pretty clutch for us.” That’s because Bourn stole third anyway and scored on a single by Pence to make it 1-1. Astros starter Wandy Rodriguez retired 13 straight before a single to Brooks Conrad with two outs in the fifth inning. Ankiel walked before Hanson’s single on a grounder to left field scored Conrad and put Atlanta on top 2-1. Hanson retired the next 10 straight after Pence’s hit.

Bobby Labonte walks to his car during qualifying for the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at The Glen at Watkins Glen.
Labonte struggles in tough season WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) — Bobby Labonte sat down at the driver’s meeting at Watkins Glen with Matt Kenseth, then joked for a moment with J.D. Gibbs before NASCAR began its prerace rundown of the rules. Six hours later, Labonte climbed from his No. 09 Chevy after placing 35th in the Sprint Cup race at The Glen on Sunday, finishing six laps behind winner Juan Pablo Montoya because of battery problems. Next season can’t begin soon enough for the former Cup champion. “It’s frustrating when you’re not winning races,” Labonte said. Winning or being in contention for a victory used to be easy for the native of Corpus Christi, Texas. He raced quarter midgets as a kid, then demonstrated he had the potential to be a star driving a late model in 1987, winning 12 times in 23 races at Caraway Speedway in Asheboro, N.C. But recently, it’s been a
nascar downhill ride. After leaving Gibbs, Labonte spent three seasons with Petty Enterprises, then was left in the lurch by the merger that created Richard Petty Motorsports. “I had a signed contract with Petty that kind of got all screwed up with the economy when it hit a low point,” Bobby said. “That kind of put me behind the eight ball as far as being in a position that we were growing and getting better.” “You talk about getting caught in a perfect storm. It’s been a bad situation,” said Terry, his brother’s rock in this time of turmoil. “One day it looked so good with Richard Petty Motorsports. He signed a good contract. Then six months later the whole thing’s fallen apart — after he had already passed up a couple of opportunities to get in something else. Tough times there.”
M-Braves drop another to last-place Birmingaham From staff reports The last-place Birmingham Barons continued their recent mastery of the Mississippi Braves on Wednesday. The Barons earned a 3-2 win in the series finale at Regions Park in Hoover, Ala. The M-Braves took their only lead, 1-0, off a Mauro Gomez double in the top of the first. The Barons followed up with two runs in the bottom of the frame. In the second,
minor league baseball the Barons added another as Eduardo Escobar had a RBI single. The M-Braves tried to rally in the sixth, as Donell Linares singled in a run. But with runners on second and third, Luis Bolivar grounded out to end the threat. Jacob Thompson took the loss for Mississippi.

Johnny Carson fans get upgraded website By Frazier Moore AP television writer
NEW YORK — For three decades, Johnny Carson tucked his audience into bed while welcoming thousands of guests to “The Tonight Show.” Now the full Carson canon has been restored, digitized, annotated and transcribed. One result of this huge archiving effort will be an upgraded website for fans containing dozens of clips for ready viewing. Yes, there will be a boosted product line of “Tonight” DVD sets for purchasing through the website. “But it will also become more of an entertainment site,” said Jeff Sotzing, president of Carson Entertainment Group, a former “Tonight” producer and Carson’s nephew. “There will be 40 to 50 clips, which we will change on a regular basis.” A companion clip-licensing website is also going live this week. Accessible only to media professionals who establish accounts, this site takes full advantage of the “Tonight” cataloging project, with a total of 3,300 hours of searchable program content keyed to any search term. For example, the search engine locates 1,570 instances of “Hi-yo,” announcer Ed McMahon’s hearty greeting to Johnny. Any of them can be instantly streamed.

‘Cathy’ comic strip ending after 34 years KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The comic strip “Cathy,” which has chronicled the life, frustrations and swimsuit season meltdowns of its namesake for more than 30 years, is coming to an end. Cathy Guisewite, the strip’s creator, said Wednesday that deciding to end the comic strip was “excruciating.” The comic has won several awards, including a 1992 National Cartoonists Society’s Reuben Award and an Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program in 1987, and at its height appeared in 1,400 papers. “It’s just been really unbelievably agonizing to make the decision,” Guisewite said in a telephone interview from her home in the Los Angeles area. “The strip has not only been the most astonishing form of therapy for 34 years, but doing a daily comic strip for
the newspaper set a certain rhythm for my life.” “Cathy” appears in The Vicksburg Post Monday through Saturday. The final strip will run in newspapers on Oct. 3. Guisewite, 59, said she chose to end the largely autobiographical comic strip because she wanted more time with her 18-year-old daughter and her parents and because “other personal deadlines started becoming more pressing for me than the newspaper ones.” She said her “creative biological clock” was also urging her to try something else, although she isn’t sure what that will be. The best part about writing the comic, “besides the personal therapy,” she said, was how she was able to connect with women.

But even though ordinary viewers are barred from the “licensing. johnnycarson.com” site, Sotzing promised that the public site will soon give them many of the same viewing goodies. “In the near future, we’ll offer them the ability to search and select from the full library of shows,” he said. “They will be able to surf the entire date site.” While specifying no time table for opening the vault to Carson fans, Sotzing said, “I don’t want to keep them out for long.”

Police thought Fantasia tried suicide Police believed they were responding to an attempted suicide after “American Idol” winner Fantasia overdosed on aspirin and other pills at her home in Charlotte, but her manager said she wasn’t trying to kill herself. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police report released Wednesday did not name the victim but Fantasia’s manager confirmed that she overdosed. A man told a 911 dispatcher that she took a bottle of aspirin and was slowly losing consciousness. Police did not identify the caller. Manager Brian Dickens said Fantasia overdosed on the pills and a sleep aid but that her injuries were not life-threatening and that it Fantasia wasn’t a suicide attempt. She was released from the hospital Wednesday, Dickens said. Earlier, he said she was “in great condition, very stable, very alert and looking forward to returning to work.” The overdose came days after a woman accused Fantasia in court documents of having an affair with her husband.

Chef licks 2 toads in kitchen, fined Maybe he was testing a new recipe. Chef Christopher Turla earned his Davenport, Iowa, restaurant a $335 ticket Wednesday after health inspectors saw a video of him kissing and licking toads in the kitchen. The video shows the chef with two small toads on a kitchen prep table at the restaurant Osaka. He kisses the toads a few times, licks them, then stuffs them in his mouth. Turla said it was just a joke. But the Scott County Health Department isn’t laughing. Food inspector Lindsay Gorishek said toads carry several diseases and that Turla had the toads in his mouth and then back in his hands on the prep table.

Families fighting cancer comfort each other Dear Abby: “Devastated in Oklahoma” (June 18) asked how she can be supportive of her father, who is battling lung cancer. I was in a similar situation 3 1/2 years ago when my dad was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the blood. It was terrifying witnessing the physical impact it had on my dad. I realized there wasn’t anything I could do for his pain — that was up to his doctors. But I figured out what I COULD do: I could raise money for cancer research. I joined the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training and trained for an endurance bike ride while raising money for cancer. It was the greatest experience not only for me, but also for my dad, who was extremely touched by the number of donations. It gave him a morale boost. I would like to encourage “Devastated” to look for a similar program in her area. It may help her deal with the diagnosis, knowing she’s helping current and future patients
DEAR ABBY ABIGAIL
just like her dad. “Devastated” doesn’t have to be an athlete to sign up. I didn’t even own a bike when I started the journey! — Emmy in Albuquerque, N.M. Dear Emmy: Taking a proactive stance is an excellent suggestion and one I am happy to pass along to Devastated. Read on: Dear Abby: With two cancer survivors in my family, I heartily endorse your advice. Even when we faced a 10 percent chance of survival, we worked, prayed, researched and talked about hopeful prospects. It helped us all in valuable ways. There were dark days, but love of family, attention to medical messages, prayer and forward thinking can make a huge difference in the heal-
BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: If you’ve laid a few foundations for advancing your financial possibilities and have stuck with them, the year ahead will reward you with added income. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Once you establish a definite objective, you won’t have any trouble coming up with a profusion of ideas as to how to achieve it. Your mental faculties will be sharper than usual. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Not only are you likely to have the ability to generate larger or extra earnings, you’ll have the wisdom to handle these funds wisely. Do your stuff and grow as much as you can. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t negate your own success by delegating to others assignments you’re far more capable of handling yourself. There are certain things that should not be left up to others. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — If your ears are tingling, it is likely because of all the nice things others are saying about you. When people with whom you’re closely involved tell you about it, act surprised. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Just because certain associates feel your present desires are a bit outlandish, don’t lower your expectations or discard your dreams. What they are capable of is far different from what you can do. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Take enjoyment in all that you do and you will find that everything will go more smoothly for you, even those tasks that are of a serious nature. It’s good advice to whistle while you work. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You have a natural knack for understanding the complicated ideas of others and determining their worth. Put to work the suggestions you find worthy. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Dame Fortune is likely to put you in the right spot to benefit from something you had no hand in originating, but whether or not you’ll take advantage of it will be up to how well you read the situation. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Your cooperative spirit is the secret to your success, and by taking the trouble to set a good example, everyone you encounter will respond in kind and even try to outdo you. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Take some time to express your creative and artistic urges, and all that you do will not only please you, but also impress everyone else who witnesses your work. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Enjoy what each of your friends has to offer, untainted by financial strings. If you want to simply have a pleasant experience with some of your pals, stay away from anything commercial. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Once you overcome your fears and beard the lion in his den, several matters that have been difficult to finalize will work out quite smoothly. It’s amazing what a little faith will do.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I agree with your answer that all young bike riders should wear a helmet. But you forgot to tell parents to do the same. Many times I see families ride by our house on bicycles. The children are wearing their helmets, but their parents are not. Aren’t parents the most important people in their children’s lives? A properly-fitting helmet is a must for safety. Even if a helmet is certified, it doesn’t mean that it fits properly. A reputable bicycle shop can help the rider get the proper fit. — Mother, Plattsburgh, N.Y. Mother: Excellent suggestions. Thanks for sharing them with our readers of all ages. Dr. Wallace: I am a 17-year-old girl from Korea who will be spending one year in America to take 12th-grade courses in September. My main purpose is to learn better English and to know more about the American way of life. I live in Anaheim, Calif., with an American man and woman and their 17-year-old daughter. All of them are nice to me and I like them very much. Grades are very important to my parents and to me. In Korea, I made all top marks in all my subjects, except mathematics. Now I’m worried that my American mathematics teacher might think I’m stupid. My American “sister” helped me write this letter to you. — Soo Kim, Anaheim, Calif. Soo Kim: Welcome to America. Not all of us can be gifted in all disciplines. I’m sure your American family will talk with your school counselor and help arrange your schedule knowing you might need extra help in math. Trust me, your parents will be proud of you when you return home to Korea. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@Copley News Service.
ing process. This is a time for Devastated to bond in new ways with her father. — Been There, Too Dear Abby: My mother was diagnosed with lung cancer, too. She had one-fourth of her left lung removed. We thought it might be the end for her, but it certainly wasn’t. She lived for seven more years, and I cherished the extra time I had with her. I hope Devastated will treasure every second with her father now. — Barbara in New Mexico Dear Abby: As a father of two and grandfather of four, I know there is nothing more wonderful than being involved with one’s progeny. Devastated should know that when her father comforted her, he was given the opportunity to do what a father loves to do — show love to his child. And believe me, to know he was needed was a comfort to him as well. She need not worry. She is right where she needs to be. — Papa in Hayward, Calif. Dear Abby: Devastated should consider hospice if her
father decides to stop treatment. It’s a godsend and costs nothing. Most of all, she needs to let her father comfort her and to be her daddy for as long as possible. It will make him feel better, let him know she loves him and will support any decision he makes. It is OK to cry, and to cry with him. — Mary in Oklahoma Dear Abby: My brave, strong, loving father was killed instantly in a car accident. When I learned about it, I wished I had him to comfort me. Devastated is fortunate to still have time with her father. She should not feel guilty about her feelings; they are perfectly normal. She needs to be his daughter first, his second pair of ears throughout his treatment and his caregiver if needed. The strength will come when she needs it. — Still Missing My Dad

Reader loses weight, gains life and health Dear Dr. Gott: I just wanted you to know that I have lost 155 pounds using your no-flour, no-sugar diet. I think I should be your spokeswoman! Seriously, I am a 56-year-old female teacher, and I wanted to get in shape before I retired a year ago. I also wanted to be healthier and have a long retirement life. At my previous weight, I was unhappy, unhealthy and unfit to do anything physical, so I tried your diet plan. It worked and it has just kept on working. It took me two years to get the weight off, and I still have around 27 pounds to go, but my doctor says I have probably added 10 years to my life. I used to be on three different high-blood-pressure medications and had to use a c-pap machine every night because of sleep apnea. Now I am medication-free, and my sleep apnea has disappeared. I have taken up walking each day now, and last week, even at my age of 56, was able to walk 34 miles! I truly believe you have saved my life, so I wanted to send you my belated thanks. You rock, Dr. Gott! Dear Reader: Congratulations! You have made a remarkable change in your life, and I commend your efforts. Making the decision to turn your life around and work toward better health is often the most difficult part of losing weight. Healthful weight loss will not happen overnight. It takes time to gain weight and it takes time to lose it. You averaged a weight loss of about 1 1/2 pounds per week, which is appropriate. I am pleased to hear that you are now able to be more active. If you continue to walk four to five miles a day, you will increase your muscle tone and further improve your health. Keep up the good work and enjoy your retirement. You deserve it. Dear Dr. Gott: Sometime ago, you published a formula of four natural ingredients to combat constipation. I gave this to a friend who suffers from this but she has lost it. Could you please reprint this? Thank you for your great work. Dear Reader: I believe the recipe you are looking for is that of my colon cocktail. It consists of equal portions of applesauce, prune juice and bran. One to 2 tablespoons taken daily in the morning should relieve symptoms of constipation. I often advise that it be made in small batches in order to keep it fresh because it does not have a long shelf life. It must also be stored in the refrigerator. Other home remedies include a mug of warm water a half-hour before breakfast each morning, warm apple
