Spencer Jr., original Red Top, dies at 88 By Steve Sanoski Louis Spencer Jr., a Vicksburg-native, World War II veteran and founding member of the popular Red Tops Band is being remembered as a religious family man and tireless worker following his death Friday. He would have celebrated his 89th birthday Sunday. “He was a very independent thinker, an independent worker and he always said, ‘family and work.’ Those were his mainstays,” said one of his five daughters, Dr. Gwendolyn Prater. “He was a wonderful man and a wonderful father.” Born and educated in Vicksburg, Spencer returned home following his service in the U.S. Navy in 1945 and 1946 and resumed working at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. In 1953 he helped form the Red Tops

Q: My 13-year-old daughter lies around the house and will sleep half a day on Saturday. She complains about being tired. Is this typical of early adolescence? A: It is not uncommon for boys and girls to experience fatigue during puberty. Their physical resources are being invested in a rapid growth process, leaving less energy for other activities. This period doesn’t last very long and is usually followed by the most energetic time of life. I would FOCUS ON suggest, first, that THE FAMILY you schedule your daughter for a routine physical examination to rule out the possibility of a more serious explanation. If it does turn out to be a phenomenon of puberty, as I suspect, you should “go with the flow.” See that she gets plenty of rest and sleep. Surprisingly, a 13- or 14-year-old actually needs more rest than when he or she was 9 or 10, simply because of the acceleration in growth. In summary, your daughter is turning overnight from a girl into a woman. Some of the physical characteristics you are observing are part of the transformation. Do everything you can to facilitate it. Q: How can parents prepare their younger children for the assault on self-esteem in adolescence? That was a tough time for me, and I want it to be easier for my kids. A: Well, one important approach is to teach boys and girls valuable skills with which they can compensate in years to come. They can benefit from learning something that will serve as the centerpiece of their self-concept during the difficult years. This would include learning about basketball, tennis, electronics, art, music or even raising rabbits for fun and profit. It’s not so much what you teach your child. The key is that he or she learns something with which to feel good when the whole world seems to be saying, “Who are you and what is your significance as a human being?” The teenager who has no answer to those questions is left unprotected at a very vulnerable time of life. Developing and honing skills with which to compensate may be one of the most valuable contributions parents can make during the elementary school years. It may even be worth requiring your carefree kid to take lessons, practice, compete and learn something he or she will not fully appreciate for a few more years. •

By The Associated Press

LOMA LINDA, Calif. — Joyce Kim needed a sign to remind her to pray. She found it a few months ago along a stretch of rural road where she and hundreds of other Southern California commuters drive home every day. A 4-foot placard reads “Need Prayer?” Shawn Heggi, a self-appointed Christian spiritual counselor, sits in a blue tent in the field nearby. Now Kim tries to stop each Friday to pray with Heggi, 35, and two of his friends. They pray for a solution to Kim’s financial troubles, the domestic violence victims she works with and the medical career she put on hold during her mother’s 11-year battle with ovarian cancer. “I go to church when I can, but that’s on a set time,” Kim said. “There may be times when I don’t have time to go to church. This is just open, it’s free, it’s available for anybody, so I stop as often as I can, when I can.” Heggi’s unconventional ministry caters to worshippers on the go, strategically placed near a traffic-heavy intersection and two hospitals. It offers a more convenient venue to pray than an institutionalized church setting, especially in an era when church attendance is shrinking, said Richard Flory, senior research associate at University of Southern California’s Center for Religion & Civic Culture. “People can stop by and unload what they have and it keeps them from having to go to church,” he said.

he said. “I’m just one beggar telling another beggar where the bread is.” Heggi saw a similar stand in Murrieta before testdriving the ministry near his hometown. He has no formal training and came to embrace Christianity in his mid-20s after reading Scripture. He didn’t adhere to any religious denomination growing up. His wife and two daughters, one named Nevaeh — heaven spelled backward — join him at the stand occasionally.

And that is good news. Who wants to believe in a God that they can put in a box and completely understand? Not me. • You can take a bucket down to the ocean and dip out a bucket full of water. Everything in that bucket is ocean, but not all the ocean is in the bucket. Amen? And with our bucket -size minds, we are never going to know all there is about God. I’m not. You’re not. Nobody is. Deuteronomy 29:29 says, “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” •

They open the stand at 3:30 p.m; at sundown, they pack up. They’ve encountered withdrawn drug addicts, veterans and people in wheelchairs. Though the majority of devotees are Christian, the men have also talked with Sikhs and Muslims — some poised to argue and some who want to know what they’re about. Chris Adair, 33, of Seattle, drove past the “Need Prayer?” sign with his wife and toddlers in tow before making a U-turn. The Loma Linda University medical student said, “I felt like I needed to turn around.” Miriam Moran, 36, a bilingual instructor who lives a few blocks from the stand, said, “When I see these men out here in the sun, it gives me faith in my belief to continue pursuing a deeper relationship with God.” But even Heggi is stymied by some requests. Saman Yousef Saman, 38, of San Bernardino, drives an ice cream truck and plans to run for city council. He requested that God allow him to earn $1 million every day. Heggi advised him to pray for wisdom.

Connie Walker, Director of Little People’s Learning Center on Bridge Street, teaches her class how to hula hoop Friday.

Funeral home, police go extra mile for family On Friday, Aug. 13, we laid our mother to rest. As we got ready to leave Glenwood Funeral Home, headed to Yokena Cemetery, the rain started. Glenwood made sure everyone got in their cars, safely and dry. The procession was led by the Vicksburg police and Warren County sheriff’s departments. At each and every intersection there was a uniformed policeman or deputy not only stopping traffic, but standing either with their hands over their hearts or at attention — in the pouring rain. The respect they showed made the family feel special on such a sad day. To the staff at Glenwood and Doug Huskey, you treated us like family. As hard as it was, you made it a lot easier. David Cochran and family Vicksburg

We would also like to thank El Sombrero restaurant for donating the refried beans and rice. We also would like to thank all of the Auxiliary members who worked long hours baking, cleaning, serving and decorating.

Miss. casino winnings up $35M in July JACKSON (AP) — Revenue figures released Friday show Mississippi’s 30 statelicensed casinos won more from gamblers in July, which was expected, but an expert says gaming houses are still feeling the impact of the recession and the BP oil spill. There was a nearly $35 million increase in winnings at the 30 casinos between June and July, according to figures released by the state Department of Revenue. Players left behind $224.3 million in July, up from $189.4 million in June. The figure

was down slightly from July 2009, when Mississippi’s casinos won $224.8 million. “July is always better than June,” said Scott King, director of research and policy for the Gulf Coast Business Council. He said this year’s take was boosted because the Fourth of July holiday fell on a weekend. “As you climb out of the recession, you start seeing some positive signs. It’s a positive sign that we’re within a percent point of last year,” King said. Along the coast, 11 casi-

nos took in $97.6 million last month, up from $87 million in June. The coast casinos took in $104.1 million in July 2009. The 19 casinos along the Mississippi River, including Tunica, Vicksburg, Greenville, Lula and Natchez, won $126.6 million last month, up from $102.3 million in June. Those casinos won $120.6 million in July 2009. “Win” is a gross figure, with no operating costs or other expenses deducted. It is casino revenue only and doesn’t include other revenues generated by the resorts.

Experts: Gulf shrimp safe, but yields low BILOXI, Miss. — Mississippi State Extension Service officials say the quality of Gulf of Mexico shrimp is good, but the yields are low. Shrimping began when state waters opened on June 3. After the BP oil spill, partial closures were into effect beginning on June 8. By July 1, state waters had closed. Dave Burrage, a marine resources professor at the extension service, says there wasn’t much time to harvest the shrimp. He also says many shrimpers temporarily worked in BP’s Vessels of Opportunity program to skim oil. Burrage says shrimpers generally land about 1.5 million pounds of shrimp in June. This past June, they landed only 186,000 pounds. He says the good news for shrimpers is the price is up by about a $1 per pound. Officials say the shrimp went through rigorous testing.

3 confirmed cases of West Nile in La. BATON ROUGE, La. — Louisiana’s health department says doctors have reported two new dangerous infections from the West Nile Virus in East Baton Rouge Parish over the past week. The Department of Health and Hospitals says a case of flulike West Nile fever was reported in Ascension Parish. The 12 cases so far this year include five “neuroinvasive” infections that can damage the brain or spinal cord, two of fever and five without symptoms.

Feds indict two Natchez officers NATCHEZ, Miss. — Two Natchez police officers have been indicted on federal civil rights charges for allegedly beating two men in custody, officials said Friday. One of the officers, Dewayne Johnson, also was charged with stealing credit

Barbour calls special session $500 million economic development package, jobs on agenda JACKSON (AP) — Gov. Haley Barbour is calling lawmakers back to the Capitol on Aug. 27 to consider an incentive package for a $500 million economic development project that would create 1,000 direct and indirect jobs. Barbour released few details about the project, including how big an incentive package lawmakers will be asked to approve. The Republican governor said in a news release that the project’s jobs would come through the unidentified company and local suppliers. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Dean Kirby, R-Pearl, said he couldn’t disclose information about the project, but he said his committee members will be asked to attend a meeting Thursday to go over the legislative bill.

“ I t ’s ve r y innovative and something I think will surprise a lot of people,” Kirby said. Melissa Medley, chief Haley marketing offiBarbour cer for the Mississippi Development Authority, the state’s economic arm, said the agency was unable to comment because it’s an ongoing economic development deal. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Percy Watson, D-Hattiesburg, whose committee would also handle the incentive legislation, didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment. House Speaker Billy McCoy, D-Rienzi, couldn’t be reached

immediately on Friday. Other key House members said Barbour had left them out of the loop on the project. “I don’t know what it is or how much or anything,” said House Appropriations Committee Chairman Johnny Stringer, D-Montrose. Stringer said his committee decides how the incentives are funded. Rep. Cecil Brown, D-Jackson and a key budget writer, said “the only thing I can say is I can’t wait to find out who it is.” Only the governor can call a special session, and he sets the agenda. Barbour has said he might let lawmakers consider nominations to various state panels during a special session.

TVA to spend $250M at nuclear plant KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The board of directors for the Tennessee Valley Authority approved nearly $250 million toward the possible reopening one of its nuclear reactors in Alabama. The board on Friday in Knoxville approved the fiscal year 2011 budget that included $248 million to fund the initial engineering design and site preparation for Unit 1 at the Bellefonte Nuclear Plant. Final approval for the project is not expected until next year. Construction at the plant in northeast Alabama was started in 1974 but was stopped in 1988.

New Orleans buys once-flooded hospital NEW ORLEANS — Mayor Mitch Landrieu says the City of New Orleans has bought a hospital damaged by Hurricane Katrina to renovate as a public hospital. He says the $16.25 million purchase of the former Methodist Hospital is important because more than 80,000 residents in eastern New Orleans must still drive up to half an hour to reach an emergency room, five years after Katrina. The city’s plans call for spending $110 million to open an 80-bed public hospital by 2013.

Sport fishing OK in all La. state waters BATON ROUGE, La. — The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission has opened the last 862 square miles of state waters to recreational fishing, including charter boat trips. The commission notes that these areas remain closed to shrimp trawling, oystering and crabbing. The areas reopened to sport fishing are around Bay Baptiste, barrier islands, and the islands at the tip of St. Bernard Parish. The department has online maps showing the areas.

JACK VIX SAYS: After the rain, it’s mowing time again.


Barbour’s real intentions for federal funds

From other Mississippi newspapers: • The Clarion-Ledger, Jackson: Congressional Democrats may well be stretching the definition of a “jobs bill” in describing the $26.1 billion in additional stimulus funds for the states passed Aug. 10 by the House, but few are arguing that the states don’t need the help. The bill provides $10 billion to help states salvage the jobs of some 160,000 teachers whose jobs are in danger from state budget cuts. It also provides $16 billion in additional federal Medicaid funds for the states. The bill extends the medical assistance percentage, or FMAP, which was originally provided to the states in the first stimulus package. Mississippi lawmakers agreed on a $5.5 billion budget for this fiscal year

but also adopted a contingent budget to be used if Congress provided an additional increased federal matching funds for Medicaid as has now been done. Gov. Haley Barbour called the congressional vote to authorize the second stimulus “terrible legislation.” While Mississippi school children are being asked to bring paper towels, toilet paper and Lysol from home to stock public school janitorial shelves because of state budget cuts, Barbour seems more focused on preparing for his national TV close-ups amid speculation about a 2012 presidential bid. While local property taxes are being increased to fund the public schools because of state education budget cuts, Barbour’s still apparently buying into his jingoistic claim that he’s still “against raising anybody’s taxes” while helping guarantee that local property

taxes increase because of state cuts. Mississippi needs additional federal help to fund education and public health care. Educating Mississippi schoolchildren and providing viable public health care for the poorest people in the country aren’t partisan talking points. The Legislature agreed on a contingent budget. Time will tell if Barbour now tries to force lawmakers to “crawfish” on the contingent budget and whether lawmakers are politically weak enough to be browbeaten into going along with it. Mississippi needs the additional stimulus funds. The state should seek and utilize every penny in boosting aid for education and health care. Barbour shouldn’t be playing partisan political games with so much at stake.

Coast needs federal help with insurers The Sun Herald, Gulfport, Biloxi: The failure of private insurance companies to offer wind coverage to home and business owners in the nation’s coastal regions ought to compel Congress to add wind coverage to the National Flood Insurance Program. Yet Congressman Gene Taylor’s proposal to do just that is stalled in the House of Representatives. A primary opponent of Taylor’s proposal is the United States Chamber of Commerce, which four years and eleven months after Hurricane Katrina still does not understand the severity of this situation. As Coast businessman Jerry St. Pe put it: “It is troubling that an organization such as the U.S. Chamber fails to

recognize that in a global economy a national disaster in one region of the country inflicts serious, lasting economic hardship on all other regions. One would think the oil spill would have been a sufficient event to alter the Chamber’s understanding on the need for a national approach to dealing with disasters.” Taylor is more blunt: “The Chamber of Commerce, for some ungodly reason, has come out against it. You would think, with the astronomical increases in premiums that businesses have had to pay for wind insurance, the Chamber would go to bat for businesses and not the insurance industry.” If you do business on either the Gulf Coast or the Atlantic Coast, we urge

you to contact the U.S. Chamber and urge them to support the only alternative to financial ruin being offered to coastal residents and businesses. Opposition has also come from some environmental groups. So we also urge coastal chapters of all national organizations to contact their leadership and urge them to at least give coastal residents and businesses a chance to survive a natural disaster. We have steadfastly called for and encouraged a private sector solution to this ongoing obstacle to our recovery from Hurricane Katrina. After nearly five years, we cannot afford the insurance industry’s inaction. With no alternative available, Congress must give multi-peril insurance a try.

State, Appalachian commission necessary partners Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, Tupelo: Mississippi reaffirmed its intergovernmental and private-sector relationships with the Appalachian Regional Commission recently with a visit from ARC federal Co-Chairman Earl Gohl, a Pennsylvanian who took the reins after unanimous Senate confirmation in the spring. Gohl is an Obama administration appointee, but like all the long line of previous ARC federal chiefs he will play a thoroughly bipartisan role helping state-level Appalachian directors and divisions fulfill the program of work shaped by governors, regional planning and development districts, and, in a crucial link, the private sector whose dynamics connect with the assets and experience of the 45-year-old

agency. ARC’s adaptability, in fact, is the underpinning of its longevity. It hasn’t the money to fully fund major projects, but it has the right kind of money and grant-making process to kick-start and lay the foundation for much larger government and private investments. Its adaptability includes changing its focus with the times. Its mission includes the digital highway as well as the concrete highways interconnecting its 13-state region from southern New York to east central Mississippi. Its political resilience is traceable to its origins when, it is widely, repeatedly told, the late and venerable Sen. John Stennis, a Mississippi Democrat who was at the same time a conservative and an enthusiastic appropriator,

provided key assistance with the legendary, perhaps apocryphal statement, “I can stand on my porch in Kemper County and look out to see the foothills of the Appalachians.” Stennis’ eyesight may have been a geographic stretch, but it reflects the kind of political vision and pragmatism from which program enactment and longevity are made. Only 24 of Mississippi’s 82 counties are within ARC’s region, but the poverty and other negative demographics like education inadequacy exist statewide. Our Appalachian neighbors seem to be better at lifting themselves by their bootstraps and with ARC help. We suspect part of the problem is lack of long-term political will to do what’s necessary rather than what’s easy and expedient.

Remembering is part of his stock and trade, and Todd wanted this pivotal birthday to harken to childhood, including the hot nights.

Island swelter ingredient for birthday bliss DEWEES ISLAND, S.C. — Birthday toasts made a steamy Carolina night even warmer, as an amazing collection of people ate a frogmore stew and celebrated Todd Johnson’s 50th year. It was, Todd said, his intention to spend his birthday in unbridled August heat, a porch screen away from the mosquitoes, tree frogs and cicadas. He lives in faraway Connecticut now, but Todd Johnson remembers well August in the South. He wrote his first novel, “The Sweet By and By,” in the lyrical language of RHETA his North Carolina gRIMSLEY childhood. Remembering is part of his stock and trade, and Todd wanted this pivotal birthday to harken to childhood, including the hot nights. And so here we all were, a Whitman Sampler of people, celebrating on a porch in a treehouse of a house, a house secluded on an island that allows no cars and limits development and is a ferry ride away from the normal noise and bustle of real life. The lack of automobiles alone brought me back several shades of sanity. If only there were entire states devoted to pedestrian-only traffic. I met the Yale Divinity School graduate last March at a Hoover, Ala., book festival. It was one of those affairs that can be lousy with poets, pomposity and preening. Todd made this one different. He made it memorable. And I’m not even talking about his flawlessly executed and incredibly funny book talk. I’m talking about his company. The night before our scheduled lectures, we talked too late about too much. I felt it the next day but didn’t care. I was charmed by this former teacher and studio singer — he crooned a lot of advertising jingles about toilet paper and so on — and the Broadway producer of “The Color Purple.” At the conference Todd seemed genuinely interested in everyone else, not given to lofty pontificating or posturing or arriving late to be noticed. Todd was a regular guy, except a regular guy with exceptional talent. And he had this incredible sense of drama that he trailed like a feather boa. I didn’t see him again until the birthday party. Turns out I’m one of a multitude of Todd Johnson groupies. Most of the party guests had known Todd a lot longer than I and had better stories to share, or photographs. I, on the other hand, had merely played a hunch and won. And so, while Hank Williams sang his plaintive ballads, those of us who determinedly made it to an island we’d never before heard of got to know one another. And the common denominators were open minds, creative spirits, glistening foreheads and Todd. In the island heat, I couldn’t help but think of one of my favorite passages from Todd’s book: “It’s too hot for a picnic. I’m positive that this must violate the Health Department’s standards for what you can make old people do in rest homes. ... When I look out the window, even the birds look hot to me; their back feathers shine like mirrors in the sun. All their movements are so fast and jerky, it’s a wonder they don’t have miniature heart attacks. Their hearts must be bigger than their brains or else they’d hide up in a cool longleaf pine.” As soon as the last shrimp was peeled and the last toast offered, we all headed out of the familiar heat of Todd’s childhood into the air-conditioned house. We were spirited, not stupid.

DR. GEORGE AT WORK Q: Do you know of a business that has been formed as a result of this economy? — Need to Know A: There are many companies that are capitalizing on this new economy, often called DR. GEORGE R. “the New Norm.” One of them is named E-SPACES. It can be found at It describes itself as the office for mobile, connected professionals — an inviting and functional environment to work, meet, learn and connect. One who rents from E-SPACES can easily modify his or her work environment to meet the needs


of the business. E-SPACES offers comfortable chairs and couches for customers, a cafe table and work table for collaborating with colleagues and outdoor and meeting areas. E-SPACES members have access to a staff shared by other clients, which keeps you from paying a full-time salary. E-SPACES is ideal for entrepreneurs who can’t afford a traditional office. The owners have an office in Nashville, and they plan to expand. I like their concept. •

New guidelines could rule out many oil claims MIAMI (AP) — A flower shop in Florida that saw a drop-off in weddings this summer is probably out of luck. So is a restaurant in Idaho that had to switch seafood suppliers. A hardware store on the Mississippi coast may be left out, too. The latest guidelines for BP’s $20 billion victims compensation fund say the nearer you are geographically to the oil spill and the more closely you depend on the Gulf of Mexico’s natural resources, the better chance you have of getting a share of the money. Also, a second set of rules expected this fall will require that businesses and individuals seeking compensation for long-term losses give up their right to sue BP and other spillrelated companies — some-

the Gulf?” That worries business owners like Susan Mitchell, who runs a flower shop about a mile from Pensacola Beach, Fla., where tarballs from the spill washed up. She said her business was down about $4,000 this year. The new rules govern emergency claims that can be made between Monday and Nov. 23 at Gulf Coast claims offices, by mail or online. Feinberg said his goal is to issue emergency checks within 24 hours for individuals and seven days for businesses. Those seeking emergency payments will not have to give up their right to sue BP and other companies. But the rules for final, long-term settlements will include a waiver of that right.

Who gets paid and who doesn’t will depend largely on how much proof there is that losses were caused by the spill and not by something else, such as the recession. thing that could save the oil giant billions. The new rules for the claims process were released Friday by Washington lawyer Kenneth Feinberg, who was picked by President Barack Obama to run the fund and previously oversaw claims for 9/11 victims. Beginning Monday, the claims will be handled by Feinberg rather than BP, which is still footing the entire $20 billion bill. Who gets paid and who doesn’t will depend largely on how much proof there is that losses were caused by the spill and not by some-

thing else, such as the recession. Feinberg’s guidelines say key factors include a claimant’s geographic proximity to the disaster and how much the business or property is linked to “injured natural resources.” Feinberg elaborated on his reasoning during town meetings this week in Louisiana. “How close are you to the beach? To the Gulf? BP got claims from restaurants in Idaho. Go figure,” he said. “How close are you? That’s a major factor. How dependent are you, as an individual or a business, on the resources of

Stocks slide as investors’ malaise continues NEW YORK — Stocks have closed moderately lower as investors’ pessimistic view of the economy deepens. Investors are finding little reason to buy. Friday has brought no new reports to offset the previous day’s disappointing news that growth in the domestic economy continues to slow. Oil prices have fallen again on worries that future demand will wane if economic growth remains tepid. Energy stocks were among the worst performers, including oil companies Chevron Corp. and ConocoPhillips. The Dow Jones industrial average is down 57, or 0.6 percent, at 10,213. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index is down 3, or 0.4 percent, at 1,071. The Nasdaq composite index is up less than a point at 2,179. Losing stocks were ahead

Recall of tainted eggs expands WASHINGTON — The nationwide recall of tainted eggs expanded Friday as a second Iowa egg farm was linked to the ongoing investigation of a salmonella outbreak that has already sickened more than 1,000 people. Iowa’s Hillandale Farms said Friday it was recalling its eggs after laboratory tests confirmed illnesses associated with them. The company did not say how many eggs were being recalled or if it is connected to Wright

County Egg, another Iowa farm that recalled 380 million eggs earlier this week. An FDA spokeswoman said the two recalls are related. The strain of salmonella poisoning is the same strain linked to Wright County Egg. The eggs recalled Friday

Palestinians, Israelis resume peace negotiations WASHINGTON (AP) — Plunging into the Mideast peacemaker’s role that has defeated so many U.S. leaders, President Barack Obama on Friday invited Israel and the Palestinians to try anew in face-to-face talks for a historic agreement to establish an independent Palestinian state and secure peace for Israel. Negotiations shelved two years ago will resume Sept. 2 in Washington, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said. Obama will host Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas for dinner the night before. The goal: a deal in a year’s time on the toughest issues that have sunk previous negotiations, including the borders of a new Palestinian state and the fate of disputed Jerusa-

lem, claimed as a holy capital by both peoples. “There have been difficulties in the past, there will be difficulties ahead,” Clinton said. “Without a doubt, we will hit more obstacles.” Indeed, soon after Clinton’s announcement the militant Hamas movement that controls the Gaza Strip, which along with the West Bank is supposed to be part of an eventual Palestinian state, rejected the talks, saying they were based on empty promises. Winning agreement to at least restart the direct talks makes good on an Obama campaign promise to confront the festering conflict early in his presidency, instead of deferring the peace broker’s role as former President George W. Bush did. Bringing the two sides to Washington for a symbolic

handshake also will saddle Obama with one of the world’s most intractable problems just when many other things, from a jobless recovery to probable midterm election losses, are not going well. “This is the Pottery Barn rule for Obama. He owns this now,” said Aaron David Miller, a scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center who advised presidents during two decades of attempts at a Mideast settlement. The breakthrough after a nearly two-year hiatus in face-to-face negotiations brings the two sides back to where they were when the last direct talks began in November 2007, near the end of the Bush administration. Those talks broke down after Israel’s 2008 military operation in Gaza, followed by Netanyahu’s election last year on a

much tougher platform than his predecessor. Friday’s announcement came after months of shuttle diplomacy by the Obama administration’s Mideast envoy, former Sen. George Mitchell. It also followed a period of chilly U.S. relations with Netanyahu, primarily over expansion of Jewish housing on disputed land. Under the agreement, Obama will hold separate discussions with Netanyahu and Abbas on Sept. 1 and then host the dinner, which will also be attended by Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak and Jordan’s King Abdullah II. Egypt and Jordan already have peace deals with Israel and will play a crucial support role. Also invited is former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, the special representative of the “Quartet” of Mid-

as a 10-member blues, jazz and pop group. He was a saxophonist for the all-black group that played for racially mixed audiences in the years of Jim Crow laws and strict segregation. The group played at dances, colleges and clubs locally and throughout Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama through the early 1970s. “They had a ball, and he loved it,” Prater said of her father’s 20 years with the group. “Along with being a hard worker, he also loved to have fun. He liked to party and to dance — and he was a very good dancer.” Spencer’s death leaves only two surviving original Red Tops — ­ Rufus McKay and Jimmie Bosley. Spencer was on hand in March 2008 for the unveiling of a Mississippi Blues Trail marker honoring the Red Tops — the first blues trail marker placed in Vicksburg. As described on the Mississippi Blues Trail website, the Red Tops “were the top band in Mississippi during an era when nightlife centered on the dance floor.” The Red Tops primarily played on weekends, and Prater said her father would work multiple jobs during the week to support his family. He retired in 1979 after 37 years as chief messenger for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, but remained active long afterward. He also worked at the Saenger Theatre, operated Gladys’ Grocery Store, owned a janitorial service and managed rental properties. “He always said, ‘God bless the child that has his own,’” Prater remembered. “He worked very

hard and very smart his entire life, and was always a very active and busy man.” As late as September, Spencer was pushing to reopen Anderson’s Cafe, which he had owned for more than 30 years when it closed in late 2008. His bid to reopen the last of Vicksburg’s neighborhood clubs, however, was denied by the Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen due to changes in zoning ordinances. Despite his active lifestyle and busy schedule, Prater said her father always made time for his family. “He used to always take us children for rides down highway 61 for ice cream on Sundays, and he would also bring his mother on those rides when she was still alive,” she said. Religion, too, remained important to Spencer, his daughter said. He was a member of Mount Heroden Baptist Church from the time he was a child, and was often heard quoting scripture. Spencer died in Madison, where he had been staying with Prater for about the past seven months due to illness. He leaves behind his wife, Willie May “Trudy” Phelps Spencer, four daughters, 14 grandchildren, 18 greatgrandchildren and 18 greatgreat-grandchildren. He was an only child to the late Louis and Clara Spencer, and was also preceded in death by a daughter, two grandchildren and one greatgrandchild. W.H. Jefferson Funeral Home has charge of arrangements.

He also must pay state fines totaling $17,500, plus court costs and fees. According to a report read in court by Warren County District Attorney Ricky Smith, Neihaus was arrested in January after an FBI investigation discovered thousands of images and videos of child pornography on Neihaus’ computer. Two of the videos showed Neihaus sexually abusing a child who was under the age of 13, the report said. “In 17 years of practice and three as district attorney, this is by far the worst abuse case that I have seen,” Smith said. “The images are sickening.” Patrick told Neihaus that he had viewed the tapes before the sentencing hearing. “That was very disturbing for me,” Patrick said. “Some of the images, it will be a long time before I can clear them from my head.” Clad in an orange Warren County Jail jumpsuit and accompanied by his attorney, Michael Warren, Neihaus remained silent during the hearing except to respond affirmatively to Patrick’s questions about whether he understood the charges against him, the maximum and minimum sentences that the

Warren County District Attorney judge could impose and his right to plead not guilty and request a jury trial. In exchange for the plea, the district attorney’s office dropped four separate sexual battery charges against Neihaus that involved abuse of the same child. Smith requested that Patrick impose the maximum penalty— which would include a life sentence for each sexual battery charge — on Neihaus, but he said he was pleased with the judge’s ruling. “He’s been sentenced to a total of 115 years in prison, 80 of that for charges he was convicted of here,” Smith said. “We’re happy with that.” The abused child’s stepmother, who attended the hearing, agreed. “I wish that he could have gotten the death penalty, to be honest with you,” she said. “But I’m glad he’s going away.” Neihaus’ federal sentence, handed down Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Natchez, includes two concurrent

He attended St. Mary’s and Cherry Street Elementary schools and Magnolia High School. He served in the Navy in World War II. He was a member of Mount Heroden Baptist Church and a charter member of the American Legion Tyner-Post No. 213. He was a woodworker and played saxophone for more than 20 years as an original member of the Red Tops Band. He worked for the Corps of Engineers for 37 years, serving as Chief Messenger. He had also worked at the Saenger Theater, operated Gladys’ Grocery Store and owned and managed a janitorial service. Mr. Spencer received a

10-year terms and four concurrent 25-year terms in U.S. prison, as well as a fine of $1,500 and a restitution assessment to be determined at a later date. Smith said concern about limitations on the federal sentence motivated him to proceed with state charges against Neihaus, who was indicted in May. “I knew that the federal system might be bound by federal sentencing guidelines, and that they may not be able to give the punishment that these crimes deserve,” he said. Neihaus was turned over to the Warren County Sheriff’s Department by federal authorities earlier this week for purposes of the sentencing hearing, Sheriff Martin Pace said. According to Pace, he was returned Friday afternoon to the Madison County Detention Center, where he will await transportation to federal prison.

At that point the parties will decide where and when to hold later rounds as well as lay out what is to be discussed. U.S. officials have said following rounds are likely to be held in Egypt. In a choreographed sequence of events, Clinton’s announcement came as the Quartet simultaneously issued a statement backing direct talks and Netanyahu’s office quickly accepted the proposal. “Reaching an agreement is a difficult challenge but is possible,” it said. “We are coming to the talks with a genuine desire to reach a peace agreement.”

Nearly half leave Obama mortgage-aid program WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly half of the 1.3 million homeowners who enrolled in the Obama administration’s flagship mortgage-relief program have fallen out. The program is intended to help those at risk of foreclosure by lowering their monthly mortgage payments. Friday’s report from the Treasury Department suggests the $75 billion government effort is failing to slow the tide of foreclosures in the United States, economists say. More than 2.3 million homes have fallen into foreclosure since the recession began in December 2007, according to foreclosure listing service RealtyTrac Inc. Approximately 630,000 people who had tried to get their monthly mortgage payments lowered through the government program have been cut loose through July, according to the Treasury report. That’s about 48 percent of the those who had enrolled since March 2009. And it is up from more than 40 percent through June. Another 421,804 have received permanent loan modifications and are making their payments on time.

Embattled Waters lashes out at panel WASHINGTON — A California congresswoman charged with violating House ethics rules says the congressional office that helped prompt the probe of her behavior is known for sloppy work. Rep. Maxine Waters says the Congressional Ethics Office is “not very tight, they don’t do very good work, rather sloppy work.” Rep. Maxine AppearWaters ing on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” the 10-term Democrat denied the charges. She is accused of seeking federal funds to bail out a bank in which her husband was a stockholder. In 2008, Waters contacted then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson about setting up a meeting. The question is whether she was acting for a trade group representing minorityowned banks, or for one of the group’s banks.

Iran set to fire up nuke plant Final report released BUSHEHR, Iran (AP) — Iranian and Russian nuclear technicians made final preparations to start up Iran’s first reactor today after years of delays, an operation that will mark a milestone in what Tehran considers its right to produce nuclear energy. Nationwide celebrations are planned for the fuel loading at the Bushehr facility in southern Iran, while Russia pledges to safeguard the plant and prevent spent nuclear fuel from being shifted to a possible weapons program. “The startup operations will be a big success for Iran,” conservative lawmaker Javad Karimi said in Tehran. “It also shows Iran’s resolve and capability in pursuing its nuclear activities.” The West has not sought to block the reactor startup as part of its confrontations over Iran’s nuclear agenda, a clash that has resulted in repeated rounds of U.N. sanctions against Tehran. Washington and other nations do not specifically object to Tehran’s ability to build peaceful reactors that are under international scrutiny. However, it is seen by hardliners as defiance of U.N. Security Council sanctions that seek to slow Iran’s nuclear advances — which Tehran’s foes worry could eventually push toward atomic weapons. What concerns America and

The reactor building of Bushehr nuclear power plant in Iran. others — including Russia — is Iran’s refusal to halt uranium enrichment, a process that can be used to make fuel for nuclear arms. Russia now must follow through with its agreements, signed by Iran, to remove all spent fuel at Bushehr and ship it back to Russia for reprocessing. That’s would make it impossible for Iran to use plutonium, contained in the spent fuel, for nuclear weapons. Iran has said U.N. nuclear agency experts will be able to verify none of the waste is diverted. The uranium fuel used at Bushehr is well below the more than 90 percent enrichment needed for a nuclear warhead. Iran is already producing its own uranium enriched to the Bushehr level — about

3.5 percent. It also has started a pilot program of enriching uranium to 20 percent, which officials say is needed for a medical research reactor. President Barack Obama’s top adviser on nuclear issues, Gary Samore, told The New York Times that he thinks it would take Iran “roughly a year” to turn low-enriched uranium into weapons-grade material. The assessment was reportedly shared with Israel and could ease concerns over the possibility of an imminent Israeli military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities. Iran’s envoy to the U.N. nuclear watchdog, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, said Thursday that any military attack against an operational nuclear power plant would be a direct viola-

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The military must make sure supervisors have access to soldiers’ personnel records and be aware of signs of potential workplace violence, the Defense Department said Friday in its final report on the Fort Hood shootings. The report’s recommendations address some government failures and other problems uncovered in the Pentagon investigation launched after the Nov. 5 shootMaj. Nidal ings that left Hasan 13 dead and dozens injured on the Texas Army post. Soon after the Pentagon report’s January release, Defense Secretary Robert Gates ordered a comprehensive weapons policy for military bases and addressed other pressing issues. The Defense Department report released Friday addresses the remaining matters in the Pentagon report. But it also says more studies are necessary in certain areas, because medical and mentalhealth screening policies “do not provide a comprehensive assessment of violence indicators” and another policy “lacks the clarity necessary to help commanders distinguish

appropriate religious practices from those that might indicate a potential for violence or selfradicalization.” The report’s recommendations include improving communications between government agencies and military installations regarding potential threats, and expanding military bases’ emergency response capabilities. “These initiatives will significantly improve the department’s ability to mitigate internal threats, ensure force protection, enable emergency response, and provide care for victims and families,” Gates wrote in the report. An Army psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Hasan, has been charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. In October he faces an Article 32 hearing, similar to a civilian grand jury proceeding, in which a judge will hear witness testimony to determine whether the case should go to trial. Hasan’s attorney, John Galligan, said the Defense Department’s report is vague. “This whole report is designed to tell people we need to start looking for internal threats, but it doesn’t say what those threats are,” Galligan said. “The idea of looking inward for threats calls into question people’s privacy and constitutional rights.”

2010 Red Carpet Bowl

WC at Hazlehurst Tuesday, 4:30 p.m.

CHICAGO (AP) — Derrek Lee struggled in his first game with the Atlanta Braves and still had a good time. This was exactly what the big first baseman expected when he joined the NL East leaders. Rick Ankiel hit a basesloaded triple off a wild Carlos Marmol with two out in the ninth inning, lifting Lee and the Braves to a 5-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday. “You can see the difference with a winning team,” said Lee, who was dealt to Atlanta on Wednesday after nearly seven seasons with the Cubs. “When you’re playing well, you have the confidence.” Marmol entered with a 3-2 lead and walked three of the first four batters he faced. After Melky Cabrera struck out, Ankiel lined a 2-2 pitch into the rightfield corner. Atlanta leads the majors with 22 wins in its final at-bat and Ankiel, who arrived last month in a trade with Kansas City, was happy to finally do the honors. He entered the game with only three RBIs since joining the team. “It’s almost like we get extra adrenaline — whatever you want to call it — when it comes to late in the game,” Ankiel said.

Five-turnover outing plaguesWarren Central By Steve Wilson Sometimes the self-inflicted wounds hurt the most. Warren Central turned the ball over five times and Ocean Springs cashed in for 21 unanswered points as the Greyhounds throttled the Vikings 35-0 on Friday night in the opener of the Red Carpet Bowl. It was Murphy’s Law in full effect for the Vikings. They lost three out of six fumbles and quarterback Beau Wallace threw two interceptions. The Vikings were also penalized seven times for 65 yards, most of them coming in the form of encroachment penalties. It wasn’t the kind of debut first-year coach Josh Morgan expected. “We are a lot better football team than that,” Morgan

Ocean Springs 21, WC 0 Records: OS (1-0), Warren Central (0-1) The skinny: Vikings had five turnovers. Up next: Warren Central at Lawrence County said. “If it could have gone wrong, it went wrong tonight. We’d have a stop, we’d give them a first down with a penalty. You can’t do that against a good team. “Before it’s all said and done, we’re going to have ourselves a football team.” Ocean Springs took the early lead on their second drive of the night, a 10-play, 59-yard march capped by a 1-yard run by Dewayne Cherry. Evan Carraghan added the extra point to put the Greyhounds up 7-0 with

four minutes left in the first. The Vikings’ new-look offense started strongly on their second drive. Wallace hit Bill McRight for a 12-yard gain and Shon Jackson hit the sidelines for a 29-yard scamper to get the Vikings into Greyhound territory. Wallace shook loose on an option keeper for 15 yards to get the Vikes into the red zone. But the Greyhounds forced a fumble, which Wallace fell upon and sacked him on a bootleg pass attempt on the next play to force a field goal try, that sailed left. The fumblitis spread over to the Greyhound sideline. Ocean Springs drove all the way down to the WC 8, but on first and goal, quarterback Garrett Somers bobbled the snap and WC’s Austin Roberts scooped it up. See WC, Page C3.

Big plays doom St. Aloysius against Pelahatchie By Ernest Bowker St. Aloysius’ two keys to victory Friday night were to contain Pelahatchie’s star running back Darryan Ragsdale, and limit the Chiefs’ big plays.

pass to Laryan Fletcher just before halftime as Pelahatchie opened the season with a 14-0 victory over St. Al. “You can’t stop that kid. He’s the real deal,” St. Al coach B.J. Smithhart said of Ragsdale, who ran for more than 1,900 yards and 20 touchdowns last season. “We tried to limit the big plays. He gashed us up the middle and there was no looking back.”

St. Al ran for 125 yards as a team, but hurt itself with illtimed penalties. A first-quarter drive inside Pelahatchie’s 5-yard line was stalled by a holding penalty and the Flashes ended up with no points when a bad snap nixed a field goal attempt. Pelahatchie also sputtered offensively, suffering the same penalty problems as St. Al. “The refs dictated the game

early on. Not that it wasn’t stuff that shouldn’t have been called, but neither one of us could get a drive going,” Pelahatchie coach Bill Ward said. Pelahatchie finally broke the ice in the final minute of the first half. Hill found Fletcher for a 27-yard touchdown pass with about 40 seconds to play and Chris See St. Al, Page C3.

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Aug. 21 1931 — Babe Ruth of New York hits his 600th home run as the Yankees beat the St. Louis Browns 11-7. 1990 — Kelly Craig becomes the first female starting pitcher in Little League World Series history, opening for Trail, British Columbia. She fails to retire any of the three batters she faces, but the Canadian champions rally for an 8-3 victory over Matamoros, Mexico. 2001 — Chris Mundorf sets a USGA record with a 9-under 63 and claims medalist honors in the 101st U.S. Amateur. Mundorf’s round at Druid Hills Golf Club is a record in relation to par in a USGA championship. 2003 — Paul Hamm puts together a near-perfect routine on the high bar to become the first American man to win the all-around gold medal at World Gymnastics Championships. Needing a 9.712 or better to beat China’s Yang Wei, Hamm strings together four straight release moves during his 60-second routine — one of the toughest feats in gymnastics — for a 9.975 and the gold.

The Vicksburg Post


Hargrove hopes to be a bigger part of success VHS METAIRIE, La. (AP) — In Hollywood, Anthony Hargrove’s story would have ended with the confetti raining down at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, as he and his New Orleans Saints teammates celebrated their Super Bowl victory. And what a remarkable story that would be — the ultimate underdog, a recovering drug addict, returning from a oneyear suspension to achieve the ultimate success. But Hargrove, 27, hopes this past year was just the beginning of his renewal — on and off the field. “I’m still starving. I want more. I want this team to be great, and I want to be a part of something special here,” Hargrove said of the football aspect of his life, where he should be better in his second year with the Saints. Last season, Hargrove was an impressive role player for New Orleans, but he still was

Hargrove now said he’s able to play at a faster speed and recognize the opposing offense’s formations and plays more quickly. Defensive line coach Bill Johnson said Hargrove’s stronger against blockers and playing with more balance. “To whom much is given, much is expected,” said Hargrove, who said he’s “nowhere where I want to be yet,” but said he plans to “come here every day and give it my all.” Hargrove is taking the same

approach off the field, where he has just as passionately dedicated himself to a life of service. Almost Anthony immediately Hargrove after the Super Bowl, Hargrove joined agent Phil Williams and some of Williams’ other NFL clients on a goodwill mission to the AIDS-ravaged African nation of Swaziland. Soon after, he and Williams traveled to Germany, Switzerland and Spain on more of a personal growth mission. Along with some down time, Hargrove spent time with people to discuss his growing relationship with Christ. Williams described it as “an incredibly life-transforming” trip for Hargrove. Back in New Orleans, Hargrove has continued to give

back, working on projects with the Desire Street Ministries and Children’s Hope Chest, among countless speaking engagements in front of church groups or addictionrecovery groups or children’s groups. Sara Pace, who works with the Desire Street Ministries, described Hargrove as “a gentle giant with a heart the size of the state of Louisiana.” She laughed at the thought of everyone filling up his wheelbarrow with as much as they could pile on to test his strength as they paved a lot for a garden project. “He’s somebody who just is so open to everything, so friendly with everybody and just adorable,” Pace said. “He’s just like a big kid. He just dove in. He was a delightful person to be around, with a heart for helping people.”

backup tailback D.J. Johnson scored two late fourth-quarter touchdowns to complete the Gulfport romp. Gators coach Alonzo Stevens was upbeat despite the lopsided score. “Hey, we’re getting right where we need to be. I hate that score wasn’t indicative of how well we played in spots. The things we struggled with are correctable, which is a lot more than I guess you can say about last year,” Stevens said. The first positive for the Gators is they kept the game scoreless after one quarter. Gulfport went on a 17-play drive that consumed most of the quarter, but the Gators stopped them on downs at the VHS 17. The Gator offense showed some early life as well, picking up a pair of first downs

on completions by junior quarterback Cameron Cooksey. Then came a third-down play a minute deep into the second quarter. Cooksey made a poor read and David Bertucci came up with the interception at the VHS 26. Five plays later, Robertson hit Travis on a 21-yard TD pass with 9:56 left in the half. The score opened a 28-point barrage by the Admirals. Ashley ripped off two TD runs, the latter coming with 1:32 left in the half. With 13 seconds left, the Gators failed to punt the ball out of bounds and instead, Travis fielded and made VHS pay with a 45-yard punt return. Cooksey completed 11-of29 passes for 116 yards. Kawayne Gaston caught five passes for 36 yards and rushed for 48 more on eight carries.

But those same ones were coming up and tackling Ragsdale all night. I’m happy with the way they played,” Smithhart said. The Flashes weren’t able to tackle Ragsdale all night. He needed 19 carries to amass his impressive yardage total, and just one to break the game open. Midway through the third quarter he broke off the 85-yarder that gave Pelahatchie some breathing room. Ragsdale also made eight tackles on defense.

But it was a second-quarter sequence that broke the backs of the Vikings. After a penalty pushed them back further into the shadow of their goalposts, they faced a third and long. Shon Jackson took the handoff and safety Malcolm Joiner ripped it away and dove into the end zone to put the Greyhounds up two scores, 13-0. The Vikings fumbled again on their next possesion, as Roberts bobbled away the pigskin in a pile of defenders. Ocean Springs took advantage again, as Cherry shook loose for a 10-yard scamper a few plays later and added the two-point conversion to put the Greyhounds up 21-0 at the break. However, the lockerroom proved to be no cure for the Vikings’ acute case of fumblitis. Wallace botched the handoff on a read option and the Greyhounds recovered it at the WC 39. Cherry shook loose on a

22-yard run and capped the drive with a 2-yard plunge to cap the first-team offense’s night. He rushed 18 times for 84 yards with three touchdowns for the Greyhounds (1-0). Wes Windham finished the scoring with 1:14 remaining in the fourth with a 1-yard plunge. Jackson led the Viking offense with 98 yards on 16 carries. Ocean Springs coach Todd Mangum wasn’t happy with the way his team played, especially in the turnover department. The Greyhounds had five fumbles and lost two of them, one of which cost them a scoring opportunity. “We’re young and inexperienced and we made some young and inexperienced mistakes,” Mangum said. “We turned over the ball and that’s not good. We’ve got to be better securing the ball and we’ve got to be better tacklers on defense.”

Central Hinds romps over rival Hillcrest From staff reports The Central Hinds ground game rolled for 306 yards, compared to Hillcrest’s 27, to earn a 49-6 win on Friday night. Senior running back Hunter Farrior scored the first of his three touchdowns early in the first quarter on a 4-yard run. Pate DeMuth kicked the PAT. Junior quarterback Jordan Currie capped the quarter with a 54-yard touchdown run and DeMuth added the PAT. In the second quarter, Farrior scored on a 5-yard run. However, DeMuth atoned for missing a PAT by booting a 47-yard field goal to end the half. Currie took a kickoff 69 yards to paydirt. Backup quarterback Lee Douglas scored a

Farrior scored his final touchdown with a four-yard dash into the end zone. Sophomore quarterback Gray Jordan completed the scoring for Central Hinds with a 4-yard run. Farrior had 10 carries for 71 yards. Currie carried the ball 15 times for 138 yards.

The Trojans ran onto the field through a paper sign reading “Count on us,” a reference to last year’s team slogan “Count on me,” which Weaver touted. Another sign along the fence read, “Weavin’ through PCA.” After the game, Weaver hugged several Tallulah players and tried to downplay any bitterness between himself and the Trojan faithful. “I told the guys all week that I didn’t want to hype this game as anything but our first game,” Weaver said. “Is it special? Yes. It’s special because it’s the first one and we’re 1-0.” Tallulah opened the game with a promising 13-play drive that bogged down at the PCA 36. Then, very quickly, things fell apart for the Trojans. Masterson threw an interception on PCA’s first drive that Tallulah’s Todd Harrell fumbled back to the Eagles on the return. PCA drove down the field and took the

lead on Masterson’s 13-yard touchdown pass to Montana McDaniel with one second left in the first quarter. On Tallulah’s next play from scrimmage, Stephen Purvis buried Tallulah quarterback Hunter Windham with a blindside hit in the end zone. Windham fumbled the ball, which was recovered by Peter Harris for another touchdown. Masterson added another touchdown, a 35-yarder to Chris Marshall, with 9:37 left in the half to put PCA ahead 20-0. Three minutes later Jake Boyd scored on a 12-yard run — after he gave the Eagles the ball with an interception — for PCA’s fourth touchdown in six minutes. “I really couldn’t tell you” what happened, Tallulah running back Cody Landrem said. “We’ve been practicing, putting it together ... it was first-game jitters.” Landrem finished with 65 rushing yards on 21 carries for Tallulah.

Birkhead cries during testimony The father of Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter fought back tears in a Los Angeles courtroom while describing the late model’s ailments, including episodes of seizures. Larry Birkhead resumed testifying Friday in the drug conspiracy trial of two doctors and Smith’s former boyfriend Howard K. Stern. Birkhead said Smith sometimes suffered seizures after taking drugs, and at times he saw her fall asleep while eating and knew that she was taking numerous prescription medications. But Birkhead said Smith also had many illnesses and was strong-willed enough to do things her way, including taking more drugs than were prescribed. The charges against Stern and the doctors allege a conspiracy to provide excessive drugs to the celebrity model.

Dad buys ad after girl breaks curfew A Texas teenager who broke curfew is headed for a reluctant adventure in baby-sitting. Robert Rausch placed an advertisement offering his daughter’s free baby-sitting services in the community newspaper in Southlake, a wealthy suburb of Dallas-Fort Worth that is home to business leaders and professional athletes. The advertisement names Rausch’s 16-year-old-daughter and says, “Want a FREE BABYSITTER for a night out?” It explains that she is in trouble for missing her curfew and offers 30 hours of free baby-sitting. Rausch says he wanted to discipline his daughter and help others at the same time. And it appears his daughter has already learned a lesson. She says she won’t violate curfew again or throw any more late-night parties.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I’m 15 and really need your help. Please answer my letter. You are the only person I can trust. I live with my mom and her boyfriend. My dad is remarried and is living in Germany (he’s in the military) with his German-born wife. I love my mother very much, but living with her is terrible. I can hardly take any more of it. Mom’s boyfriend is an alcoholic. He doesn’t work, so Mom (who works) supplies him with all of his booze. About twice a week, he gets drunk and starts hitting and choking my mom. I get very upset and start crying, and then my mom screams at me to go to my room and lock the door. I’ve talked to mom about getting rid of this guy, but she says that she can’t because she loves him. It’s hard for me to understand how she could love someone who is cruel and mean to her. I’ll be in the 10th grade and like my school and teachers a lot, but I would give all this up if I could live with my grandmother (Mom’s mom) who lives about 50 miles away. My mom doesn’t want me to go, but my grandmother does. What do you think? Mom’s boyfriend has never laid a finger on me. — Nameless, Jackson, Miss. Nameless: Rarely would I suggest a daughter leave her mother, but this is one of the times I would recommend it. Mom has a strange, tragic way of being “loved.” Let’s hope your absence will cause her to realize that her boyfriend is a good-for-nothing jerk and send him packing. If that happens, return to Mom. Mom’s live-in boyfriend is actually behaving worse than a jerk; he is a criminal and should be spending time behind bars for a long, long time! • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

Teen mom pushed around by baby’s grandmother Dear Abby: I’m a teen mom who feels like I am being taken advantage of by my newborn’s grandmother. (I’ll call her “Liz.”) My baby’s father, “Todd,” lives with her. They provide no financial support. Liz puts me on the spot constantly and makes me feel bad if I tell her she can’t have the baby that day or take her to a certain place. Since day one, she has wanted to take my baby out of town. That bothers me because I don’t want my daughter going out of town unless I am with her. I feel obligated to let Todd’s mother see the baby all the time to avoid the drama she would cause in my life if I don’t. I don’t want to be mean, but I need to let her know how I feel. How do I approach her? — Young Mom in Richmond, Ind. Dear Young Mom: No one



can be taken advantage of unless she (or he) allows it. Do not allow anyone — no matter how well-intentioned — to do anything with your baby that makes you uncomfortable. You may be young, but as a mother you are responsible for your child’s welfare. Do not “approach” Liz; let her approach you. When she does, be polite, firm and stand your ground. If she tries to turn it into a power struggle, end the conversation. Do not allow her to make you lose your temper. Dear Abby: My boyfriend of

four years, “Omar,” and I have been having major arguments lately. They’re about the relationship he has with his sister. I feel he confides in her more than he does me. I realize she’s his sister, but he consults her about finances, what kind of pet to buy, how things are going at work, etc. He’s never open with me about those issues. He shuts me out to the point that I have told him if it doesn’t change, we’re through. He says I’m “overreacting.” Even more peculiar, she makes phone calls for Omar — like when his mortgage payment was late or when he had to ask the IRS a tax question. Omar is 34 and should be handling these things himself. It galls me when he puts her on a pedestal and puts me down when I make a mistake. I’m a single mom, doing well

on my own, but he refuses to acknowledge it. What should I do? — Second Fiddle in Arizona Dear Second Fiddle: It is possible that Omar’s sister has been running his life for so long that she’s the first person he thinks of when he gets into a bind. And obviously she has done a capable job of it, or he wouldn’t keep having her intercede for him. It should be clear to you by now that putting yourself in competition with her is getting you nowhere. So accept the two of them as a package deal or find a man who is independent.

Woman’s pain disorder helped by hydrotherapy Dear Dr. Gott: I am a 39-yearold mother to three small children who was just diagnosed with full-body Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I was going 150 miles per hour in my life when I twisted my ankle. I knew right away that something was wrong. The pain just never went away, but I ignored it. I was then diagnosed with CRPS/RSDS. Ten months after the original diagnosis, an aggressive tailgater crashed into the back of my car, causing the RSD to spread from my lower right extremity to my entire body. To be involved in two accidents in 10 months was unimaginable to my family and me. The pain gets so bad that no one understands it unless they have this ugly disease! I’ve become disenchanted with the medical community. I’m sent from doctor to doctor because of their lack of knowledge and/or treatments. I’ve been on so many medications in the past 17 months that I feel like a guinea pig. I know that the doctors are trying to find a proper medication for me, but what I am worried about is long-term damage to my organs. I’ve had 18 ganglion blocks in a two-month span, being put under each time thinking that we could put this disease back into a remission of sorts. There is a small window to treat this disease — smaller than what doctors report. There is a lack of communication between offices so I carry all of my medical records so I don’t have to sound like a broken record. Now I am a candidate for Ketamine infusions. I recently went into a pain management/surgical center. I was supposed to see a certain MD. This MD was unavailable, so I saw an associate. He looked at me and said there was nothing they could do for me and placed me on Kadian. This made me feel so bad that I stopped taking it after five days. I called the center and asked to talk about the medication. I was fortunate enough to speak to the MD whom I was originally there to see. He also suggested Ketamine infusions. This is my last chance at getting some sort of hold on the RSD. Is there some sort of protocol that a doctor should perform before the infusions? I had a psych work-up and then a cardiac clearance. Should all doctors who treat patients with RSD follow this protocol? The doctor who originally told me about this treatment is a

long distance away. However, there is a closer doctor, but the girls in his office know nothing about this protocol. What I have been told so far is that I will be in a recliner for four hours a day for 10 days, similar to a chemo patient, but without all the chaos that chemo brings. I don’t know if there is biofeedback, but I will be asking. On a happier note, after my first accident, I was in a pool playing with my kids and supervising them. I was in the pool for four hours and found myself going off on my own a lot. I started doing kickless laps using “noodles” and stretching my aching limbs. I think this has helped me a lot,

but my problem now is finding a pool where I can do these exercises. Dear Reader: RSD is a complex pain disorder. Many of the things you are feeling commonly accompany any disorder that causes chronic pain. Depression, anxiety, feeling helpless or a burden, and

others lead to more stress that can, in turn, worsen symptoms. If hydrotherapy provides relief, I highly endorse it.

MUSIC REVIEW Virginia Whittington caught this bear making its way across a field at the Tensas National Wildlife Refuge.

Country singer Trace Adkins

Adkins plays up humor on new CD By Michael McCall The Associated Press Trace Adkins changed more than record labels while preparing his new album, “Cowboy’s Back In Town.” The one-time finalist on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” cranks up the redneck humor and outlandish fun on his first album since leaving Capitol Records for Show Dog-Universal, a label coowned by Adkins’ friend and touring partner, Toby Keith. On “Hold My Beer,” for instance, Adkins exaggerates his Southern drawl to entertaining effect while narrating details of an alcohol-fueled wedding. Similarly, the profane titles and lowbrow wit of “Hell, I Can Do That,” “Whoop A Man’s ...” and “Ala-Freakin-Bama” suggest Adkins could have drawn these songs from the comic routines of Larry the Cable Guy. Still, the towering Louisiana native doesn’t completely ignore his tender side, which he’s used to good effect in the past. The midtempo “This Ain’t No Love Song,” currently getting country radio play, shows a sly sense of drama as he communicates a lyric that says one thing but means another. “Still Love You” is a straight-ahead romantic ballad where Adkins shows his range and the emotional weight of his burly baritone. But, this time out, Adkins is more salacious than sensitive — and makes it work for him.

The album Trace Adkins, “Cowboy’s Back in Town” (Show Dog-Universal)

Check this track out The title cut finds Adkins playing the romantic lead in his own chick flick. The melodic, midtempo song portrays a respectable businesswoman with an office job carrying on a weekend tryst with a roughneck cowboy that she keeps secret from colleagues and friends.

Comedy Central’s Colbert to honor troops returning from Iraq NEW YORK (AP) — Stephen Colbert is dusting off his camouflage suit. The comedian will broadcast two special episodes of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” to celebrate the end of combat operations in Iraq and to honor returning troops. On Sept. 8 and 9, the show will fill its audience with Iraq War veterans and active duty service men and women. Others will be beamed in via satellite from Iraq, Afghanistan and the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. “The Report,” which likes to parody over-the-top cable news graphics, is calling the episodes “Been There: Won That: The Returnification of the American-Do Troopscape.” Guests will include Vice President Joe Biden, U.S.

On TV “The Colbert Report” episodes honoring troops returning from Iraq will be Sept. 8 and 9 at 10:30 p.m. on Comedy Central.

Coverage of exit from Iraq shows networks’ differences By David Bauder AP television writer NEW YORK — Nowhere was the difference between the cable news networks on starker display than in primetime coverage on the night the last American combat brigade left Iraq following a war that started seven years and five months ago. MSNBC devoted its entire prime-time footprint to the story, with Richard Engel riding with the troops in a specially equipped vehicle and host Rachel Maddow based in Baghdad. Keith Olbermann anchored the coverage from a New York studio. Fox News Channel devoted just under 10 minutes to the story, much of it during Shepard Smith’s 7 p.m. newscast. The network spent 45 minutes discussing the potential construction of an Islamic cultural center near ground zero, while that story wasn’t mentioned on MSNBC at all. CNN, meanwhile, spent an hour on each story. The news decisions led critics of Fox and MSNBC to suggest politics was at play in the coverage decisions. Engel had been embedded with the 4th Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, the last combat brigade in Iraq. Since President Barack Obama had said combat units would leave by Aug. 31, Engel was closely tracking the exit time with an eye toward providing live coverage, said Phil Griffin, NBC News executive in charge of

ported by sand bags. One of those Iraq episodes earned “The Report” an Emmy nomination for writing for a variety, music or comedy series. The show has three nominations, including for outstanding variety, music or comedy series, heading into the Emmy Awards on Aug. 29. The 4th Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, which exited Iraq on Wednesday, officially was designated the last combat brigade to leave Iraq under Obama’s plan to

MSNBC. It was a chance to bring Iraq coverage full circle for NBC News. Engel was riding in the vehicle designed to provide live coverage while moving, nicknamed the “Bloom-mobile” at NBC because the late correspondent David Bloom first rode it in 2003 when American troops entered Iraq, Griffin said. The evening presented a logistical challenge in that MSNBC’s individual primetime programs prepared telecasts for use in case military plans forced a last-minute delay, he said. Given the access, a decision to devote the entire evening to the story was a “no-brainer,” Griffin said. “We’ve got something unique and it’s an important story. We said, ‘Let’s go for it.”’ The Iraq story was important, one that had been given short shrift in the media in recent years, said Tim Graham, director of media analysis for the conservative Media Research Center. But with MSNBC’s left-of-center opinion lineup, politics has to be considered part of the equation, he said. “I would certainly think politics are involved in their ‘flooding the zone’ to suggest that ‘Lookie here, the Obama people doing what they said they were going to do,”’ he said. Griffin said the access, technology and importance of the story drove the decision.

Puzzle answers, games, opinion polls and much more at:

First Lady Michelle Obama’s nationwide “Let’s Move!” initiative is all about health and preventing childhood obesity. Kid Scoop’s student reporter Veronica Talbert, age 11, wrote today’s page after attending the kick off student press conference at the White House.

Mrs. Obama said that she fed her kids on the run and didn’t cook a family meal very often. The family’s pediatrician told them they’d better watch what they ate. That’s why she chose “Let’s Move!” as her presidential initiative.

The First Lady believes we need to improve the nutritional value of school ______________. Most lunches today are packaged foods that are _________ and reheated.

To improve their health, the Obamas made simple changes to their daily activities. These included exercising frequently, no sugary sodas, limiting candy, TV only on weekends, cooking family meals more often, eating out less and eliminating desserts except on weekends and special occasions. Simple changes like these can make a big difference.

Mrs. Obama says we need to have healthier food, including _______ produce, available in all school lunchrooms. Lunch needs to be _____ in sodium, fat and sugar. Vending machines need fresh, _________ options.

The First Lady’s message is to think before you grab that huge, loaded cheeseburger, with soda and fries. Think about the calories. Think about the impact of it in 10 years. It’s harder to change your eating habits at an older age, so adjust when you’re young.

She thinks our schools need ___________ and P.E. Some schools have completely taken out both! Recess and P.E. give kids socialization time and promote fitness and exercise.

Though Colbert’s normal mode is satire, he’s a strong supporter of the troops. With the WristStrong bracelets he’s promoted since falling while running around his desk and breaking his wrist, he has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Yellow Ribbon Fund, a charity that assists injured service members and their families. He’s a board member of, which is raising money for the education of children of parents in the military. “Sometimes,” Colbert said earlier to The Associated Press, “my character and I agree.”

Faith is the foundation of God’s house; love and forgiveness are important building blocks. God can work through us to build and repair His kingdom… when we shine with the love of God it is reflected onto everyone we meet. With God’s spirit dwelling in us, we can construct and restore His kingdom on earth…one soul at a time. Invite a friend to church this week so that they can experience the peace, hope and love that are found there.
