Pure ‘ice’ meth found on highway By Pamela Hitchins phitchins@vicksburgpost.com Nearly 3 1/2 pounds of “ice” — an almost pure form of crystal methamphetamine — was seized by Warren County deputies Wednesday following the earlymorning traffic stop of a vehicle in which two men, two women, a toddler and an infant were riding, Sheriff Martin Pace said. The cache, with a street value estimated at between $225,000 and $400,000, was being smuggled in the tailgate of a 1990 Nissan pickup being towed by a 2003 Chevrolet Blazer, Pace said. The two men, driver Gerardo Garcia Mendoza, 24, and Ricardo Garcia Mendoza, 23, identified by investigators as brothers, are both in the country illegally from Mexico, the sheriff said. “The majority of what we refer

PASCAGOULA — A Mississippi judge has ruled that R.J. Reynolds shortchanged the state of Mississippi millions of dollars when it failed to report profits from the sale of 7.8 billion cigarettes made for Star Tobacco. Chancery Judge Jaye Bradley on Wednesday awarded the state $3.8 million for the underpayments, plus $4.3 million in interest, for a total of $8.1 million. The state argued that from 1999 to 2002 R.J. Reynolds excluded 7.8 billion cigarettes from a 1997 lawsuit settlement that were manufactured by its subsidiary Brown and Williamson for Star Tobacco & Pharmaceuticals, an independent tobacco company. The cigarettes were then packaged and sold to U.S. customers by Star Tobacco. “There is no dispute as to whether the Star cigarettes were manufactured by Brown and Williamson or that the cigarettes were for domestic consumption,” See Tobacco, Page A9.

Ridership on NRoute buses increased this month but, because more riders are buying monthly passes, fares were down from the previous month, according to statistics released by the public transportation service Wednesday. NRoute executive director Evelyn Bumpers distributed the figures at Wednesday’s meeting of the NRoute Transportation Commission. The numbers show that from July 28 through Wednesday, 3,021 people rode NRoute’s buses, up 433 from the period of June 23 to July 27. August fares, however, were $373 less than July’s total of $2,843. The reason for the difference, Bumpers said, was because many riders were buying 30-day See NRoute, Page A9.

A Vicksburg woman was in the Warren County Jail today charged with possession of crack cocaine, Sheriff Martin Pace said.

Governor Continued from Page A1. mary runoff Tuesday night. “Our first priority is not the (campaign) finances.” An expert on black political participation said Wednesday that DuPree has little chance of defeating the Republican nominee, Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant, in the Nov. 8 general election. “My guess is if the oddsmakers were putting odds on this, it would probably be something like 100-to-1,” said David Bositis, senior political analyst for the Washington-based Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies. “Mississippi isn’t ready to elect a black candidate to major statewide office.”

Bositis, who has spent more than two decades researching voting trends, said Mississippi is one of several Deep South states that has developed re-segregated electoral patterns, “with the Republican Party being the white people’s party and pretty much just AfricanAmericans being the Democratic Party.” Mississippi’s current governor, Republican Haley Barbour, is limited to two terms and couldn’t seek re-election this year. Republicans have held the Mississippi Governor’s Mansion four of the past five terms.

Quake shows difficulty of evacuation from D.C.

East Coast tests bridges, battens down for Irene BUXTON, N.C. (AP) — All along the East Coast, officials are calculating what they need to do if Irene becomes the first major hurricane to strike the East Coast in seven years. A hurricane watch was issued today for much of the North Carolina coast. From North Carolina islands connected to the mainland by just a handful of bridges to the waterlogged shores of New England, officials were scrambling to inspect bridges, sending naval ships away, dusting off evacuation plans and getting sandbags ready for potential floods. And considering where and when to move people out of harm’s way. “You have to recognize that you’re living here on an island, and island living represents certain risks,” said Edward Mangano, county executive in

Jonna Packer and Raymond Braxton, of Morehead City, N.C., watch the surf today at Atlantic Beach, N.C. Long Island’s Nassau County, where school buses were being moved to higher ground in case they’re needed to evacuate residents to storm shelters. “And those risks appear now, at least, to be tracking toward us.” Irene could hit North Carolina’s Outer Banks Saturday

afternoon with winds around 115 mph. It’s predicted to chug up the East Coast, dumping rain from Virginia to New York City before a muchweakened form reaches land in Connecticut. Finally, it should peter out in Maine by Monday afternoon. A hurricane watch was

South, West lead in marriages, divorces, Census Bureau finds WASHINGTON — Singles, take note: With marriages at an all-time low, states in the South and West rank among the highest for couples hearing wedding bells. But many of these states also have higher rates of divorce. The first-of-its-kind analysis by the Census Bureau, released today, also finds that people are waiting longer before marrying for the first time. In particular, the percentage of women who wed as teenagers has dropped precipitously since 1970, while many men are postponing marriage past their college-age years. In all, there were 19.1 weddings performed per 1,000 men and 17.6 per 1,000 women across the U.S. in 2009, while divorces became final for 9.2 of every 1,000 men and 9.7 of every 1,000 women. By region, the South and West had the most marriages, with rates of roughly 19 per 1,000. But they also led in divorces, each at about 10 per 1,000.

Regents rewriting higher ed master plan BATON ROUGE — The state’s Board of Regents is rewriting the master plan for Louisiana’s public colleges, which will update long-term goals for the campuses and set a framework for each college’s mission. The move to adjust the master plan adopted in 2001 comes as state higher education financing has been cut in recent years, schools have eliminated programs and state leaders have pressed colleges to redefine their

roles. Lawmakers asked for an updated master plan from the Regents by Sept. 1. The board unanimously agreed to the plan Wednesday. It includes 65 performance measures for judging schools, along with a push to raise the number of state residents graduating from high school and college to the same levels as other Southern states by 2025.

Whistleblower suit in La. dismissed BATON ROUGE — A federal judge on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit by the state of Louisiana accusing two self-described whistleblowers of illegally copying and circulating documents containing confidential information about homeowners applying to a Hurricane Katrina grant program. U.S. District Judge James Brady ruled he doesn’t have jurisdiction over the state’s case against Christy Weiser and Thomas Pierson, who were hired by The Shaw Group Inc. to work on the state’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program after Katrina and Hurricane Rita struck in 2005.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation’s capital has prepared for emergencies with sleek communication systems, intelligence fusion centers and chemical detention centers at train stations. What showed during the 5.8-magnitude quake that shook much of the East Coast Tuesday was that evacuating during an emergency could tax the city’s resources. Traffic was snarled for miles in downtown Washington as employers released workers early at the same time thousands of commuters tried to drive home or cram onto buses and trains already overloaded and slowed by speed restrictions because of the quake. “Not that yesterday was chaos, but definitely, it was not as smooth as it could have been,” said Justin Thorp, 27, a marketing manager who works downtown and who escaped the congestion with

a bicycle he found through a bike-sharing program. A strong evacuation plan is seen as especially critical for Washington, the seat of federal government and a city perpetually on guard against terrorist attacks. The president and vice president and their families enjoy Secret Service protection, and Congress has security procedures to evacuate its members. Others would have to rely on the city. Also, the earthquake has produced at least five aftershocks. The U.S. Geological Survey said the aftershocks around the central Virginia epicenter had ranged in magnitude from 4.2 to as little as 2.2 since the strongest earthquake to strike the East Coast since World War II. Another hit early today with a magnitude 4.5 and 3.1 miles deep.

Race for 2012 taking shape The Republican presidential race is tightening. The recent Iowa straw poll didn’t pick any delegates — that will be done at the Iowa Caucuses on Feb. 6 — but the poll began culling the herd of GOP candidates. Finishing first with 4,823 votes was Rep. Michele Bachmann, who was born in the Hawkeye State and was elected to Congress from neighboring Minnesota. Her feisty campaign attracted Tea Party support. Commendably, she opposed the recent budget deal that increased the federal debt limit to $17 trillion without significant spending reforms. Just 152 votes behind her ran Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, whose libertarian stances increasingly have been adopted by the Tea Party and Republicans in general. He also was the only major candidate to advocate ending the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. For years, he has pointed out that the wars, in addition to killing more than 4,000 U.S. troops, are a major drain on

the U.S. Treasury; and that any deficit and debt reduction must include major defense cuts. A third-place finish, with 2,293 votes, led Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty to drop out. Spoiling the fun was Gov. Rick Perry of Texas. He didn’t run in the Iowa poll but announced his candidacy the day it was held, garnering national attention. A conservative on many issues, he’s running on the Lone Star State’s stellar economic performance, in which it has created 40 percent of new U.S. jobs in recent years. Critics point out that he supported Democrat Al Gore for president in 1988. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who won the previous straw poll in 2007, didn’t participate this time. He finished second in the Iowa Caucuses in 2008. Mr. Romney has built strong teams in Iowa and New Hampshire, the location of the first primary. He’s running a smooth campaign. But he still backs his medical reform in Massachusetts, including coverage man-

dates, which was a partial model for the Obamacare program most Republicans would like to repeal. “It’s now a four-way race” with Romney and Perry leading, Jack Pitney told us; he’s a professor of politics at Claremont McKenna College. The straw poll “isn’t a random sample of votes, so it doesn’t necessarily predict the outcome of the Iowa Caucuses in about six months. Bachmann and Paul both have an organization and will be around for a while. The path to the nomination for them is steep, but at least as far as Iowa goes, any number of outcomes is possible.” Unannounced possible candidates include Sarah Palin, the 2008 vice-presidential nominee, and New Jersey Gov.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Jeff Stahler

Absentee ballot fraud more a threat than voter ID STARKVILLE — Mississippi voters are expected to easily approve a voter ID initiative on the 2011 general election ballot. Voter ID requirements are long overdue in Mississippi and have reached the ballot over the most specious and manufactured objections. But as the state’s chief election officer confirmed this week, voter ID gets the most headlines while absentee ballot fraud actually has the potential to do the most harm in Mississippi elections. Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann has sounded a valid alarm in Mississippi politics. Hosemann has confirmed that absentee ballots as a percentage of total votes cast has tripled in the last three elections in Mississippi from 2 percent to 6 percent. More troubling, in 20 of the state’s 82 counties, absentee ballots made up 10 percent or more of total votes cast. Quitman County — where 29

percent or 1,040 of 3,580 votes were cast with absentee ballots — set the pace. In 19 other counties, absentee ballots accounted for between 10 percent to 18 percent of each county’s total vote: Claiborne, Grenada, Issaquena, Noxubee, Greene, Sharkey, Humphreys, Carroll, Clay, Holmes, Leflore, Tallahatchie, Benton, Jefferson, Alcorn, Franklin, Montgomery, Walthall and Winston. Note that Benton and Noxubee counties are in that number. State convictions against Benton County officials have proved that voter ID is indeed needed and that opposition to it is far

more partisan posturing than the statement of any real grievances. Three years ago, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans agreed with U.S. District Judge Tom S. Lee of Forest that Noxubee County Democratic Party Chairman Ike Brown systematically violated white voters’ rights. The landmark case marks the first time in history that the federal government has used the 1965 Voting Rights Act to protect the rights of white voters. Lee in 2007 ruled in favor of the U.S. Justice Department officials who claimed that Brown

disenfranchised white voters in Noxubee County in violation of the Voting Rights Act. Brown appealed the ruling to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and a three-judge panel later affirmed Lee’s ruling. The feds proved that Brown and his loyalists rigged the voting process against white voters by manipulating voter rolls, making threats to ban some whites from voting and miscounting ballots to ensure white candidates lost, and committing other discriminatory acts. In 2009, after the 5th Circuit upheld Lee’s decision in the Ike Brown case, Brown told The Associated Press that he denied trying to limit anyone’s rights. Brown told the AP he was proud of his efforts to get more blacks to vote, whether by absentee ballot or getting them to the polls. “Did Judge Lee rule I kept anybody from voting? No,” Brown said. “Did Judge Lee rule that I

kept anybody from running? No. Judge Lee said because there were so many blacks voting absentee, it must be fraudulent. How do you defend against that? Nobody has brought charges of absentee voting fraud in Noxubee County.” Hosemann’s probe of the seemingly excessive absentee ballots in 20 counties across the state could change that reality in Noxubee County — where 15 percent of the total vote came from absentee ballots in the 2011 primaries. That, of course, was down from over 20 percent in prior elections. The Legislature should take Hosemann’s research as a signal to begin a serious debate of absentee ballot reform. The state has winked and nudged at the obvious abuses of the process for far too long. •

lightly. You guys need to sit down and weigh your options. Owning a home is also a matter of lifestyle, not just a financial decision. You have to ask yourselves: Are you ready to take on the responsibilities of paying for a plumber when a pipe bursts, mowing the lawn, etc.? In other words, you won’t have property management to take care of these things for you. You didn’t mention what your credit looks like, but I am assuming it’s good.

Steve Jobs holds up an Apple iPhone at the MacWorld Conference in San Francisco.

Steve Jobs stepping down as CEO; firm must show it can still deliver SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — With Steve Jobs bowing out as CEO, Apple Inc. must persuade investors and consumers that it doesn’t need the force behind the iMac, iPod, iPhone and iPad in charge to keep the technology hits coming. Tim Cook, his hand-picked successor, has handled the top job repeatedly in the absence of the ailing Jobs, who resigned as chief executive Wednesday and was elected chairman of Apple’s board. Though not nearly as recognizable as Jobs, Cook had been running Apple since January. The company’s stock has risen 62 percent during that time. Jeff Gamet, managing editor of Apple-focused news

site The Mac Observer, said Jobs’ departure has more sentimental than practical significance. He Tim said he has Cook been telegraphing the change for several years. “All Apple really has done is made official what they’ve been doing administratively for a while now, which is Tim runs the show and Steve gets to do his part to make sure the products come out to meet the Apple standard,” he said. But Trip Chowdhry, an analyst with Global Equities

Research, said Jobs’ maniacal attention to detail is what has set Apple apart. He said Apple’s product pipeline might be secure for another few years, but he predicted that the company will eventually struggle to come up with market-changing ideas. “Apple is Steve Jobs, Steve Jobs is Apple, and Steve Jobs is innovation,” Chowdhry said. “You can teach people how to be operationally efficient, you can hire consultants to tell you how to do that, but God creates innovation. ... Apple without Steve Jobs is nothing.” Jobs’ resignation appears to be the result of an unspecified medical condition for which he took a leave from his post in January.

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks fell in morning trading today, giving up early gains. Bank of America Corp. led other bank stocks higher on news that Warren Buffett is investing $5 billion in the bank. BofA jumped 17 percent in early trading. The bank had lost half its value this year as investors grew worried about its need to raise capital and its liabilities related to subprime mortgages. The news of Buffett’s investment drove other bank stocks higher. Morgan Stanley and Citigroup Inc. jumped more than 6 percent. Most other stocks turned lower. Financial stocks were the only one of the 10 industry groups in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index to rise. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 109 points, or 1 percent, to 11,211 in morning trading. It had been up 85 points shortly after the opening bell. Apple Inc. fell more than 1 percent after co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs resigned late Wednesday. Jobs’ departure was expected because of his health problems. Richard Gardner at Citigroup recommended investors buy the stock. The S&P 500 index fell 10 points, or 0.9 percent, to 1,167. The Nasdaq fell 25 points, or 1 percent, to 2,441. The price of gold continues to fall, sinking $17 to $1,740 an ounce. Gold plunged $104 an ounce Wednesday. Gold’s 5.6 percent drop on Wednesday was the steepest in more than three years.

Foreclosure sales drop sharply in Mississippi The number of Mississippi homes being sold in some stage of foreclosure has dropped sharply over the past year. Irvine, Calif.-based RealtyTrac said 99 foreclosed homes were sold in the state in the April-through-June period at an average price of $145,331. That represented a 20.7 percent discount from homes that were not in foreclosure and 9.5 percent of all second-quarter home sales in Mississippi. RealtyTrac said the number of foreclosed homes sold in the second quarter in Mississippi rose 4.2 percent from the first quarter of 2011, but fell nearly 42 percent from the second quarter of 2010. Nationally, the second quarter saw 265,087 foreclosure sales at an average price of $164,217. That represented a 32 percent discount and accounted for 31 percent of all U.S. home sales. In some regards, the avalanche of housing foreclosure has bypassed Mississippi: the state’s total of 99 secondquarter foreclosure sales was the lowest except for Maine, which had 91. In Louisiana, sales of homes in some stage of fore-

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS closure went for about a third less than homes not in trouble. RealtyTrac said 930 foreclosed homes were sold in the state in the Aprilthrough-June period at an average price of $121,506. That represented a 34.1 percent discount from homes that were not in foreclosure and 14.8 percent of all second-quarter home sales in Louisiana. The number of foreclosed home sales rose 13.6 percent from the first quarter of 2011 in Louisiana, but fell 3.9 percent from the second quarter of 2010.

Mortgage applications fall to 15-year low WASHINGTON — Mortgage applications to purchase a home fell last week to a 15-year low, despite the lowest mortgage rates in decades. Many potential buyers are holding off because they are worried about job security and fear the economy could slip back into another recession. The Mortgage Bankers

Association said Wednesday that an index measuring mortgage applications, which are adjusted for seasonal factors, fell 2.4 percent last week from the previous week. Home mortgage applications plunged 5.7 percent to its lowest level since December 1996.

who both hold valid Georgia driver’s licenses, were questioned by deputies and immigration officials but there is no indication they were involved in or aware of the drug trafficking, Pace added. Immigration officials said there was no reason to detain the women and they were released with the Blazer late Wednesday evening, he added. “It’s not unusual for drug couriers to use women and children as cover to make their travel appear more like a family vacation,” Pace said. “In many cases they don’t know the true reason for their journey.” The Blazer could have been seized by the sheriff’s office but more was owed on it than it was worth, and the county would have had to pay off the lien, he added. The men were traveling with a statue of Santa Muerte, literally “Saint Death,” and both sport tattoos of the figure venerated by many in Mexico and often used by drug traffickers who believe it offers protection for their activities, said Sgt. Jason Bailess. “It’s not a 100 percent given, but it’s a very strong indication of illegal activity,” Bailess said. Deputy Brandon Jones made the traffic stop at about 4:30 a.m. on Interstate 20 near the Utica-Mississippi 27 exit when he noticed the pickup, on a car trailer, swerving side-to-side in traffic, Pace said. The Blazer displayed a paper tag, not a permanent license plate. When approached, neither the driver nor the passenger had a driver’s license or any acceptable form of identification, he added. “The deputy was suspicious of their activities, and asked for and received permission to search the vehicles,” said

passes for bus service. “When you sell more passes, you’re going to have less fares,” she said. Compared with the previous fiscal year, August’s numbers were 818 riders less than the same period in 2010. Fares totaled $2,470 which were $1,451, or 37 percent, lower than last August. NRoute’s ridership had been down from the previous year since the 2011 fiscal year began on Oct. 1, 2010. One reason for the lower numbers, Bumpers said, was the 2011 Mississippi River Flood, which affected the

the sheriff. Inspecting a protruding area of the pickup’s tailgate, the deputy found a package of crystal meth and took the vehicles, the driver and the passengers into custody, he said. Additional ice — a total of 3.34 pounds —was discovered after investigators impounded the vehicles, received a warrant and made a thorough search including dismantling the tailgate. “This kind of crystal meth usually sells for between $100 and $200 a gram, depending on how and where it is sold,” Pace said. “The farther you get from the source, the more expensive the drugs are.” There are 28 grams in one ounce, and nearly 454 grams in a pound, meaning about 1,500 grams of ice were seized. Pace said there is no indication the drugs were bound for Vicksburg and Warren County. “This is a significant amount of a very dangerous drug,” Pace said. Both Mendozas were in the Warren County Jail without bond this morning. They have been charged with possession of crystal meth with intent to distribute and also were being held for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, said the sheriff. They could have an initial hearing as early as today, but Pace said even if a judge sets bond, they will not be able to bond out of jail because of the federal detainer. Drug Enforcement Administration agents also have been contacted, he said.

PRECISION FORECAST Kings Community, one of NRoute’s busiest routes. Kings residents were forced to leave their homes in early May as the Mississippi rose to record heights in Vicksburg, cresting at 57.1 feet on May 19, 14.1 feet above flood stage and 1.3 foot above the Great Flood of 1927. Some residents are just now beginning to return to the area. Bumpers said NRoute is redesigning routes, adding they should be ready by the commission’s September meeting. In other action, the

commission: • Learned from Bumpers that money is available to purchase video cameras and vehicle locating devices for the buses. She said the $22,598 for the cameras is available through federal transportation and multimodal funds administered through the Mississippi Department of Transportation. The $10,370 for the locating devices will be paid using stimulus funds. • Learned the transportation system’s fiscal 2010 audit will begin Sept. 6.

Sharp meetings. “I’m happy he’ll still be on the board,” Hopkins said. Sharp was first elected to the Main Street board in 1987. He was elected again in 1996, and also was elected chairman. “We’ve come a long way in the last 15 years,” Sharp said. “Downtown has again become a viable, solid part of the community. I’m hopeful some young people will get involved now and continue the work.” Sharp came to Vicksburg in 1985, when he bought and restored The Duff Green Mansion, an antebellum home on First East Street. The home is now a bed and breakfast. In September 2010, he acquired Green Acres Memorial Park, which has been renamed Greenlawn Gardens Cemetery. Sharp, who operated a cemetery in Florida before coming to Vicksburg, had been appointed receiver of Green Acres in 2009 after the Secretary of State’s office took over the financially troubled cemetery. Sharp said Wednesday that

getting Greenlawn back into shape has been his priority. “It’s a big challenge, but I’m enjoying it,” he said. In other action, the board: • Learned that Hit the Bricks is Sept. 8. • Discussed the 17th Annual Fall Festival and the Second Annual Bricks and Spokes. Hopkins said the fall festival will feature a free concert on Friday, Sept. 30, featuring Four Guys and a Girl and The Mulemen. Bricks and Spokes, on Saturday, Oct. 1, will take bicycle riders into Warren County, and across the Mississippi River into Louisiana using the U.S. 80 bridge. • Learned the Blue Room Blues Trail marker ceremony is Sept. 21 at the gazebo on Clay Street across from the parking garage. • Discussed the Lofts of Vicksburg tour on Nov. 12. • Discussed Vicksburg’s Old-fashioned Christmas Open House from 1:30 to 5 p.m. Nov. 27. • Discussed the Christmas Parade of Lights is set for 5 p.m. Dec. 3. The theme is “Disney Christmas.”

Continued from Page A1. Bradley wrote in Wednesday’s decision. “Therefore, the court finds that Star cigarettes should have been counted and used in the agreed formula.” Mississippi sued cigarettemakers in the mid-1990s to try to recover public costs of tobacco-related illnesses. The two sides settled the massive lawsuit in 1997. Attorney General Jim Hood

said the original tobacco settlement in 1997 requires companies to pay Mississippi for every cigarette they make and ship. Hood said Brown and Williamson made cigarettes but shipped them to a third party manufacturer, Star. Star tobacco then sold those cigarettes to consumers in Mississippi. “The court agreed with our position that B&W could not

use such trickery to avoid paying Mississippi for those cigarettes,” Hood said in a statement Wednesday. R.J. Reynolds’ attorneys had argued that Brown and Williamson made cigarettes for the independent tobacco manufacturer then packaged and sold the cigarettes in Mississippi. Since income from manufacturing Star cigarettes

was excluded by Brown and Williamson in calculating the master tobacco settlement formula used to establish how much each state receives, Bradley appointed a special master to make those determinations. R.J. Reynolds, an indirect subsidiary of Reynolds American Inc., and Brown and Williamson, along with tobacco giants Philip Morris

and Lorillard Tobacco Co. were included in a 46-state master tobacco agreement in 1997 that was led by Mississippi Attorney General Mike Moore. Mississippi had its own, separate settlement with cigarette-makers. The states had argued the cigarettes produced by the tobacco industry contributed to health problems among the population.

Libya rebels fight to capture loyalist-held cities TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — Libyan rebels battled forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi in the east today and faced stubborn resistance in the capital as the opposition moved to assert control over the oil-rich country even as the longtime dictator remained at large. The rebels have seized control of much of Tripoli as Gadhafi’s 42-year regime crumbled, but the autocrat has refused to surrender and vowed from hiding to fight on “until victory or martyrdom.” The rebel leadership has offered a $2 million bounty on Gadhafi’s head, and British Defense Secretary Liam Fox said today that NATO was helping in the search for the maverick leader. Fox said NATO was “providing intelligence and reconnaissance assets to help in the hunt,” and had been heavily active in carrying out overnight airstrikes against Gadhafi loyalists, but refused to say if British special forces were involved. Rebels said one of their key targets now is Gadhafi’s hometown of Sirte, about 250 miles from Tripoli, but acknowledged that capturing that city would not be easy because Gadhafi’s fellow tribesmen were expected to put up a fierce fight.Opposition leaders have said they were trying to negotiate a peaceful surrender of the city. Fawzi Abu Ketf, deputy defense minister of the rebel National Transitional Council, said another challenge was the need to supply troops at the front. “The supply lines will be

Gadhafi loyalists also had ambushed rebels advancing toward the town of Bin Jawad, some 350 miles southeast of Tripoli, killing at least 20 of them. Wednesday’s attack was carried out by pro-Gadhafi forces who had hastily retreated from the oil city of Ras Lanouf after rebels captured that city earlier this week, said Ahmed Zeleity, a rebel commander. The ambush showed that pro-regime forces retain the ability to strike back even as the rebels tighten their control over the nation’s capital. Abu Ketf said fighting was

raging today outside Bin Jawad, but he had no details. Rebels also have seized several parts of Sebha, another Gadhafi stronghold still holding out, including the main commercial Gamal Abdel-Nasser street, according to the NTC’s Adel al-Zintani, who is in daily telephone contact with rebel commanders in the desert city, 400 miles south of Tripoli. He said mercenaries from sub-Saharan African nations who had been paid by Gadhafi have fled the city, but loyal soldiers were continuing to hold firm. The humanitarian situation is bad with lengthy power and water outages, he said.

In search of funds, the head of Libya’s rebel Cabinet was meeting today with Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi, his second stop on a European tour aimed at securing the release of billions of dollars in frozen Libyan assets. Mahmoud Jibril meets Berlusconi in Milan after laying out plans in Paris for governing Libya after the collapse of Gadhafi’s 42-year regime. The Libyan opposition said they urgently need at least $5 billion in frozen assets to pay state salaries, maintain vital services and repair critical oil facilities.

LONDON (AP) — NATO intelligence and reconnaissance assets are being used in the hunt to track down Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi. British Defense Secretary Liam Fox said NATO was playing an active role in efforts to locate Gadhafi — who fled from his Tripoli compound before it was stormed by opposition forces Tuesday. The rebel leadership has offered a $2 million bounty on Gadhafi’s head, but the autocrat has refused to surrender as his 42-year regime crumbles in the North African nation, fleeing to an unknown destination. Speaking to a local television channel Wednesday, apparently by phone, Gadhafi vowed from hiding to fight on “until victory or martyrdom.” Fox declined to confirm today whether troops from Britain’s elite Special Air Service or Special Boat Service were involved in attempts to locate Gadhafi — but acknowledged that NATO has a key role. “We never comment about special forces, not least because if we were to use them under those circumstances it would compromise their security,” Fox said. European officials have confirmed that small numbers of

British, French and other special forces have been working inside Libya in recent months. “It is fair to say, however, that NATO is providing intelligence and reconnaissance assets to help in the hunt for Col. Gadhafi, and indeed the remnants of the regime,” Fox s a i d . “Last night, NATO was more active than we have been in recent days in terms of air activMoammar ity against Gadhafi the resisting elements.” Rebels say Gadhafi’s hometown of Sirte, which is 250 miles (400 kilometers) east of Tripoli on the Mediterranean Sea, is now a key target. Mahmoud Jibril, the head of the opposition government, said Wednesday during talks in Paris that Gadhafi could be “in Sirte or any other place.” Britain previously provided a small number of military advisers — thought to be around 12 — to help organize Libya’s rebel forces. France and Italy also sent similar troops to assist the anti-Gadhafi forces with training and logistics.

Syria uprising

Activist: Gunmen snatch, beat up cartoonist BEIRUT (AP) — Masked gunmen dragged Syria’s best-known political cartoonist from his car before dawn today, beat him severely and left him bleeding along the side of a road days after he compared Syria’s president to Moammar Gadhafi, human rights activists said. Hospitalized with serious injuries, Ali Ferzat appears to have become the most famous victim of the repression of Syria’s 5-month uprising — a stark reminder that no Syrian is immune to the government crackdown. Passers-by found Ferzat “heavily beaten and physically abused,” said Omar Idilbi, a spokesman for the Local Coordination Committees, an activist group that helps organize and track the uprising. Pictures published on online forums today showed the artist in a hospital bed with heavily bandaged hands and a bandage right above his right eye. Idilbi blamed security forces for the attack, although Rami Abdul-Rahman, head of the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said the identity of the attackers could not be confirmed. Ferzat has said he had great hopes for Assad when

Cheney says he advised Bush to bomb Syria WAS H I N GT O N ( A P ) — Former Vice President Dick Cheney writes in his new memoir that President George W. Bush rejected his advice in 2007 to bomb a suspected nuclear reactor site in Syria. Cheney said he was “a lone voice” for military action against Syria. Other advisers were reluctant, Cheney said, because of “the bad intelligence we had received about Iraq’s stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction” before the 2003 invasion of that country. The Israelis bombed the Syrian site later in 2007. Cheney’s autobiography, “In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir,” also dis-

cusses his history of health problems, including multiple heart attacks. In an interview Dick WednesCheney day with NBC News, Cheney said he had a secret resignation letter signed and stored in a safe in case he became incapacitated. Cheney said he signed the resignation letter in March 2001, about two months after taking office. Only Bush and one of the vice president’s staff members knew the letter existed.

he became president in 2000 after inheriting power from his late father. But in recent years Ferzat has become a vehement critic of the regime, particularly as the military launches a brutal crackdown on the country’s protest movement. This week, he published a cartoon on his website showing Assad with a packed suitcase, hitchhiking a ride with

a fleeing Gadhafi. Many of his cartoons directly criticize Assad, even though caricatures of the president are forbidden.

In his book, Cheney writes that he was unconscious for weeks after heart surgery in 2010. Cheney’s book includes criticism of other members of Bush’s administration. He accuses former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice of naivete and says he believed former Secretary of State Colin Powell tried to undermine Bush “by criticizing administration policy to people outside the government.” Powell’s resignation after the 2004 election “was for the best,” Cheney writes. “In My Time” will be published next week by Simon & Schuster.

New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles runs the ball during practice on Wednesday in Oxnard, Calif.

OXNARD, Calif. — Pierre Thomas feels a bit nostalgic when talking about the New Orleans Saints’ core group of running backs. He can’t help but be reminded of 2009. Thomas compared this year’s crop of rushers to the crew from two seasons ago that featured Mike Bell, Reggie Bush and Thomas — a group which ranked sixth in the NFL in yards gained on the ground. The Saints are hoping a similar production also provides the same end result: a Super Bowl championship. “I feel like it’s the same

way,” Thomas said Wednesday following New Orleans’ third practice during a weeklong stay in Southern California. “It’s a good changeup for us to have three different backs, and three dangerous backs, back there. It allows our offense to be diverse and to try new things.” And if it feels like an entirely new group from a season ago, it practically is. Despite being the lone holdover on the depth chart from last year, Thomas is getting his legs back under him after missing much of the season because of injuries. He’ll be joined in a revamped backfield by first-round pick Mark

Sidelines NCAA hits Pearl with big penalty

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The NCAA said it wanted to send a clear message by slapping Bruce Pearl with a threeyear show-cause penalty: Coaches are responsible for their programs. The sanctions announced Wednesday make it harder for the former Tennessee men’s basketball coach to get another college job anytime soon. Pearl is prohibited from recruiting during the next three years, and a school would have to convince the NCAA to have that penalty removed if it hired him. “As these allegations are becoming more and more regular, it’s very clear that a head coach is being held responsible for his program,” said Britton Banowsky, Conference USA commissioner and vice-chair of the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions. The NCAA said Wednesday it had punished Pearl for lying to investigators about improperly hosting recruits at his home and urging others to do the same.

Ingram and the diminutive Darren Sproles, who signed as a free agent from San Diego. Thomas believes this year’s slew of backs can be a formidable bunch, with each player bringing something different to the table. “I see us as a three-headed monster, like we were in ‘09,” Thomas said. “It’s a good rotation and dangerous backfield. ... You got Sproles, he’s a fast guy, quick guy, agile guy — something like Reggie. You got Mark Ingram, who is basically both. And I think I’m both,

Flashes shoot for first win By Steve Wilson swilson@vicksburgpost.com It was a case of where the score looked far worse than it appeared. Looking at last week’s 37-14 loss to Madison-St. Joe, St. Aloysius coach B.J. Smithhart saw easily correctable mistakes. The problem is nearly every mistake resulted

On the air 101.3 FM, Friday, 7:30 p.m. St. Al at Greenville-St. Joe in big plays that put the Flashes (0-1) in a two-touchdown deficit early. And the Bruins, who brought nearly

60 players, wore down the young Flashes as the game went on, increasing the likelihood of mental errors. St. Al dressed 32 players. “We had four or five plays of over 40 yards and that’s one too many,” Smithhart said. “They were simple plays, speed sweeps, things like that. That’s what is so frustrating. We’ve got to work on wrapping up and

tackling. They want to win more than anybody and they know we’ve got to make some corrections.” The Flashes will need to improve their assignment discipline and tackling when they take on Greenville-St. Joe on Friday, as the Fighting Irish have a quarterback bigger than most Class 1A

BATON ROUGE, La. — Authorities searched LSU starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson’s apartment on Wednesday and collected a swab of his DNA in connection with a bar fight last week that injured four Jordan Jefferson people. “He gave us 100 percent cooperation,” Baton Rouge police Sgt. Don Stone said, adding that the quarterback’s attorney also showed up and that authorities didn’t ask Jefferson any questions. “During the course of the investigation we got enough probable cause to obtain a search warrant for his home.

Consolidation is only choice to solve football woes Fans at the Friday’s 49th annual Red Carpet Bowl expected to see a pair of close games and see an improvement after Vicksburg and Warren Central combined for four wins last season. What the fans got was a near repeat of last year. Vicksburg was overwhelmed by Brandon, 47-14, while Pearl took advantage of Warren Central’s mistakes in a 41-6 victory. The combined score was Rankin County teams 88, Warren County teams 20. Ouch. In the first game, the mismatch was apparent during the singing of the national anthem. Vicksburg dressed 55 players, while Brandon dressed more than 90.

In the second game, Warren Central and Pearl dressed more than 60 players apiece. But the difference is Pearl is a Class 5A school. Both Vicksburg and Warren Central sit at the bottom of Class 6A attendance figures. According to the last reclassification, Vicksburg was 31st out of 32 6A schools with 1,106 students, while Warren Central was 27th with 1,165.

football programs. Forty, 30, even 20 years ago, Warren County could support two large high schools with successful football programs. Now, the county’s population is able to support only one. The results on the field bear this out. When was the last time either of the two county schools was relevant on the state football scene? That would be 2008, when Vicksburg finished 9-3. Since then, the Gators are 3-20, counting Friday’s loss. The Vikings, who won championships in 1988 and 1994, have fallen off significantly, too. Since 2004, when the Vikings finished 10-2, they have gone 28-40.

The two schools are classic tweeners, too big for 5A, but realistically too small to compete in 6A. It’s a numbers game and unfortunately, for Vicksburg and Warren Central, the line has to be drawn somewhere. Numbers don’t always add up to consistent winning football programs, as Greenville Weston, Southaven and DeSoto Central, which are in the top 10 in numbers, can attest. South Panola has won seven of the last eight state championships and is ranked 22nd in enrollment. But increased numbers can always help. It’s no secret that Madison Central, Meridian and Oak Grove are three of the biggest 6A schools and three of the most successful

The facilities have mirrored the results on the field. Once, the two programs had facilities that were the envy of the state. Despite a new weight room at Warren Central, both schools are saddled with aging, obsolescent facilities. If the county schools are to snap out of their doldrums on the gridiron, the phrase uttered by Christopher Lambert’s immortal character Connor MacLeod in the 1986 classic sci-fi movie “Highlander” comes to mind. There can be only one. One high school that is.

BASEBALL Former Cy Young winner Flanagan dies at 59 BALTIMORE — Mike Flanagan, a former Cy Young winner and part of the Baltimore Orioles’ 1983 World Series championship team, has died. He was 59. Authorities found a body outside Flanagan’s home in Monkton, Md., on Wednesday afternoon. Hours later, the Orioles confirmed that Flanagan — who served the team as a pitcher, front office executive and television broadcaster — was dead.

NBA Owners, union to meet next week NEW YORK — Negotiators for NBA owners and players will likely meet again next week. And the league will have to offer something different to interest the players. The union has been holding regional meetings, informing its members just how harsh it believes the owners’ proposal is for a new collective bargaining agreement. The league is seeking significant changes to the salary structure as a way to eliminate its losses, which it says totaled $300 million last season.

Trojans aim to fix mistakes after loss From staff reports

The associated press

Chicago Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro, right, forces out Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla at second base during the ninth inning on Wednesday. The Cubs won 3-2.

Three-run second sinks Braves CHICAGO (AP) — Even in defeat, the Atlanta Braves’ clubhouse reverberates with confidence, as if there are greater things to focus on than one loss. A deep run into October, for example. Derek Lowe pitched seven strong innings, and Chipper Jones and Alex Gonzalez homered, but it wasn’t enough as the Braves fell to the Chicago Cubs 3-2 on Wednesday night. All the damage done to Lowe (8-12) came in the second, when the Cubs batted around and scored three runs. Alfonso Soriano followed a leadoff walk with a two-run homer, and speedster Tony Campana reached on Dan Uggla’s fielding error and came around to score on a groundout. The Cubs went on to load the bases, but Lowe induced an inning-ending groundout. “I don’t consider that a rough inning for me,” Lowe said with a grin. “That’s damage control.” Other than that, Lowe was as dominant as he’s been all season. He gave up four hits and four walks. Lowe struck out six and threw a seasonhigh 119 pitches.

“He’s gonna get the loss, but I think he deserves better,” said Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez. “You look at his linescore, and it might be one of his best starts. He was really, really good.” Lowe tossed seven full innings for the first time since May 17. “As embarrassing a stat as that may be, I’d rather be doing that now than back then,” Lowe said. “We’re winding down and you’ve got six or seven starts left, you want to finish up strong to put ourselves in a good spot. We’re still trying to catch Philly. “I don’t think this loss is going to stay with us very long, especially the way we’ve been playing.” The Braves have won 15 of 20 and remain 61⁄2 games behind the Phillies in the NL East. “Regardless of whether (Lowe) won or lost tonight, we needed him to give us innings and he did that,” said Jones. “That’s the luxury of how well we’ve played up until this point. We lose a game like this tonight, it doesn’t really bother us because we are where we are. Just file this one away and come back out tomorrow.” Jones’ home run chased

Saints to Miami, replacing him by giving Sproles a four-year deal. Ingram and Thomas are expected to share the heavy lifting, including getting carries at the goal line. Ivory may also be in the mix for carries. But Sproles, who is listed at 5-foot-6, could be the X-factor. While Sproles has never been an every-down runner in his six years in the NFL, he will complement the other two as a change-of-pace back, as well as being a steady receiving threat on passing downs.

LSU Continued from Page B1. The reason was to search for certain items that will assist in the ongoing investigation and will help either prove or disprove the allegations against Jefferson.” Investigators left with several brown bags of evidence, but Stone said he could not immediately discuss what items were taken from the senior quarterback’s home. The search came a day after Jefferson and three teammates — offensive lineman Chris Davenport, linebacker Josh Johns and

From staff reports Behind Henry Wrigley’s seventh inning grand slam, the Montgomery Biscuits downed the Mississippi Braves 8-5 on Wednesday. The M-Braves led 5-4 with two outs in the seventh when Wrigley hit his slam off closer Brett Butts to put the Biscuits ahead. The loss ended a season-high five-game win streak for the M-Braves. Aaron Shafer picked up his second straight quality start. He allowed just three earned runs in six innings of work. He outdueled Tampa Bay Rays prospect Alex Colome, who allowed four runs

on seven hits in five innings. Each took no-decisions. Marquis Fleming took the win for Montgomery, his fifth. Butts suffered a blown save and the loss, his second. He was also ejected after hitting John Matulia following the grand slam. Mississippi built a steady 4-1 lead through five innings. Ernesto Mejia hit a double to lead off the second and came in to score on a Donell Linares RBI groundout two batters later. Mejia also picked up an RBI on the night, his MBraves’ record 86th, when he grounded out to bring in Jordan Kreke.

Cubs starter Randy Wells (5-4) with two outs in the seventh, but it was just the second hit of the game for Atlanta. Wells held the Braves to one run and two hits over 62⁄3 innings, striking out six and improving to 4-1 in his career against Atlanta. “He had an outstanding changeup tonight. He made one mistake with it,” Jones

said. “I thought he pitched as good ... Well, I can’t really say that, he had us no-hit in the seventh in our place, so I have seen him pitch that well. ” Wells, then a rookie, had a no-hit bid broken up by Jones with two outs in the seventh on June 2, 2009 in Atlanta. The Braves came back from a 5-0 deficit to win 6-5 in 12 innings.

Central Hinds at Bowling Green Coach Todd Montgomery wants his Central Hinds Cougars to get physical. Montgomery said a lack of physical play in the second half contributed to wasting a 17-point lead in an openingnight loss to Riverfield. Heading into what figures to be another hard-hitting matchup with Bowling Green, getting mean and aggressive was crucial if the Cougars are to avoid a repeat performance. “I thought we were awful. We weren’t nearly as physical as we should be,” Montgomery said. “Riverfield was one of the most physical teams we’ve played in a long time. It might have been a shock to us. But in the long run it might turn out to be a good thing.” On a similar note, Montgomery was hopeful the pain of losing a season-opener for the first time in five seasons shocked Central Hinds out of whatever complacency it might have slipped into. CHA raced out to a 17-0 halftime lead against Rivefield, but lost 18-17 when a blocked field goal was returned for a touchdown in the final minutes. “I think it was more our boys had a 17-point lead and thought they could relax. They found out they couldn’t,” Montgomery said.

MHSAA Hinds AHS at Richland Like half the teams in Mississippi, Hinds AHS spent this week trying to regroup after a tough season-opening loss. The War Dawgs lost 36-28 to archrival Raymond in quadruple overtime last Friday. It was an encouraging effort, on some levels, for a team that won only one game last season. Even so, it’s clear there’s plenty of work to do for Hinds before it’s competitive on a weekly basis. “It’s all about getting better, and the kids understand that. If we don’t get better every week, we’re going ot struggle,” Hinds coach Michael Fields said. Week two of the high school season brings a meeting with another Class 4A school, Richland. Hinds, a Class 1A school, was already heading into the game with obvious matchup problems in terms of depth. It only got worse when starting tailback Shaquille Stamps suffered a shoulder injury against Raymond. He’ll be out for a couple of weeks, Fields said. Richland has struggled in recent years, but Fields noted that so has his team. Facing a school three times Hinds’ size also is never easy. “I know they’ve been down in 4A, but they look pretty good on film. When you’re 1A and they’re 4A, it makes a difference,” Fields said.

Port Gibson at Coahoma County Port Gibson (1-0) makes a second straight trip to the Mississippi Delta tonight when they battle Class 2A playoff power Coahoma County (1-0) in Clarksdale. Coahoma County went 11-2 last season, advancing to the second round of the Class 2A playoffs. Running back Damien Blue led Coahoma to a 14-6 win over Humphreys County last week. Blue finished with 141 yards on 18 carries. The Blue Waves got a win, beating Hollandale Simmons 20-12.

I can add a little bit of shake in me when I can pull it out.” Injuries wreaked havoc on the Saints’ ground game last year, causing the team to fall to 28th in the league in rushing. Thomas appeared in just six games and Bush was limited to eight. Rookie Chris Ivory was promoted by default and led the team with 716 yards in 12 games. Cleary in need of reinforcements, the Saints gave the position a facelift during the offseason. They traded up to draft Ingram with the No. 28 pick and later shipped Bush

Biscuits snap M-Braves’ win streak

After fumbling four times in a season-opening loss to Park Place Christian last week, it was obvious what one of the points of emphasis would be for Tallulah Academy when it returned to practice. “Over the course of a day or two, you can correct that,” Tallulah coach Chris Busby said. “We did ball control drills on Monday. We ran the gauntlet and tried to strip it out.” Busby has also tried to flush away the 26-20 loss last Friday as simply one bad night. The Trojans committed the four turnovers — one of them in the open field on a potential scoring play — and gave up two long touchdown passes. Heading into Friday night’s game against Lee, Ark., forgetting the previous outing was as important as gearing up for the next one, Busby said. “That’s what every Monday practice is, win or lose, is flushing last week and looking at the obstacle in front of you,” he said. “I think it was just a bad game. It’s one of those things that happens. I just hate that it happened to us when it did.”

receiver Jarvis Landry — were interviewed by police for the first time since the fight that occurred in the parking lot of a bar were police say numerous LSU players were gathered late Thursday night. The most seriously injured victim has three broken vertebrae, Police chief Dewayne White has said. There have been no arrests and no charges have been filed, but White stressed that police hope to gather enough evidence.

ATLANTA (AP) — While Terrell Owens waits for an NFL team to contact him, the 15-year veteran wide receiver has focused his attention toward an acting career. Owens, who tore his anterior cruciate ligament and had surgery in early April, filmed an episode of the USA sitcom “Necessary Roughness” on Wednesday at the Georgia Dome. He said his knee is a couple months away from being completely healed and though no team has contacted him, he still expects to play this season. “I’m still not 100 percent to be able to go to a team and contribute,” Owens told The Associated Press. “When I get to the point to where I’m comfortable and able to run around, I’ll feel like those calls should be coming.” Owens, 37, said he is not worried about skeptics who wonder if can still be a major NFL contributor. He said he is capable of making plays on the field, pointing out the 983 yards and nine touchdowns he had with the Cincinnati Bengals last season. Owens also said the league’s 41⁄2-month lockout helped him. He said after his surgery four months ago, he didn’t feel pressured to rush his rehab

nfL because there were no offseason training activities being held. “It worked out for me,” he said. “I don’t see Terrell where there Owens was a disadvantage considering nobody was doing anything at the time. There was a lot of downtime. But that’s for anybody who was nursing an injury. It allowed us that time with no pressure.” If a team doesn’t come calling anytime soon, Owens said he can spend more time honing his acting skills. He has spent numerous of hours in acting class, learning how to complete a dialogue without stumbling over his lines. Liz Kruger, the executive producer and creator of “Necessary Roughness,” said Owens has the potential to become a good actor and is eager to learn. On the sitcom, Owens will play the role of an All-Pro defensive back on the show’s season finale, which airs Sept. 14.

linemen. Junior quarterback Raines Rester is a mammoth 6-foot3, 240 pounds and will be a load to bring down. Rester will present a big challenge for St. Al’s young defense. While not a polished passer in his first varsity start, as he completed 5 of 20 passes for 46 yards and an interception in a 21-20 win over Riverside last week, he is an excellent runner. He rushed for 87 yards and three scores last week. Like Tebow’s Florida Gator teams, the Irish run the spread offense to create lots of running lanes for their big signal caller. “We’re going to see a lot of four and five wide receiver sets from them,” Smithhart said. “They’re going to want to spread you out and make you defend the whole field.” One sign that the St. Al defense was on the field far too long last week was borne

out by the tackling numbers. Three different St. Al defenders had at least nine tackles, led by Sage Lewis with 14 stops and Carlton Campbell with 10. As for his team, Smithhart liked what he saw at times offensively. He was impressed with how sophomore quarterback Carlisle Koestler has grown into his role under center. Last year, he split time with Ford Biedenharn, but now that the job is solely Koestler’s, Smithhart is excited about the possibilities. The sophomore completed 4-of-9 passes for 39 yards with no interceptions. “He’s going to be really good,” Smithhart said. “He improved a lot after the jamboree. Give him a couple a games and he’s going to be sharp.” Campbell led the Flashes last week with 15 carries for 45 yards and a TD.

Modern bride’s trip to altar is crowded with relatives Dear Abby: A young brideto-be who signed her letter “Touchy Decision in Ohio” (June 18) prefers her stepdad walk her down the aisle at her wedding, but is worried about what her biological father (whom she sees once or twice a year) and other relatives might think. In my many decades on this Earth, especially during the last 10 or 15 years, I have seen all sorts of changes in wedding etiquette, including the customs governing who walks down the aisle. In addition to fathers escorting daughters, I’ve seen brothers escort sisters and children walk their mother to the altar. In Ohio’s case, the logical solution, and the more appropriate one, to me, would be to have both gen-

tlemen escort her down the aisle, one on either side. What could be lovelier? The bride-to-be should consider that the hurt feelings that often crop up on sensitive occasions such as this, if not attended to beforehand, can tarnish the memory of the event in the minds of loved ones forever. — Barb H. in Springfield, Mass. Dear Barb: Thank you for your response. Opinions regarding Ohio’s letter

Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Something of material significance could be offered you from an unexpected source.

TWEEN 12 & 20

BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: I have my summer, work-play schedule all set up and it works perfectly for me. I am employed from 4 to 10 p.m. at a fast food restaurant Monday through Thursday. That way I can sleep late in the morning and have Friday and Saturday to spend with my friends and Sunday with my parents. Last Saturday, when I was at the beach with a group of my friends, the restaurant manager called and talked with my mother. He told her that I was an excellent worker and he wanted to add Saturday (same hours) to my work schedule because one of the workers quit without giving notice. My mom told him yes. I was really upset when I got the “good news.” I tried to talk the manager out of working Saturdays, but he told me no. He said if I didn’t like my new schedule I could quit. I enjoy my job and I save most of the money I earn to help with my college expenses, so I can’t quit. When I questioned Mom about making this decision without discussing it with me, all she said was that she thought she was doing me a huge favor. When it comes to the restaurant manager, I find him to be a big jerk and I have lost all respect for him. Do you think my mother should have discussed this very important decision with me? Her decision just ruined the rest of my summer. — Alyssa, Oceanside, Calif. Alyssa: I’m sure Mom thought she was doing what was best for you, but the decision to work on Saturdays was yours to make, not hers. She shouldn’t have made a commitment for you. If you’re mature enough to handle the responsibilities of a paying job, you’re mature enough to make your own life decisions. As for the manager, I agree

100 percent with your evaluation of his personality. He thinks you’re an excellent employee, but is daring you to quit if you don’t like your new work schedule. His human relations skills are weak. Give him credit for offering you the extra hours, but he should have asked that you return his call as soon as possible in order for him to make other arrangements. However, I would add that sometimes work does make demands on us that we don’t like, but nevertheless have to shoulder. Hang in there and enjoy the extra money you’ll be earning. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@ Copley News Service.

are numerous and varied. A majority of those I heard from agree with your suggestion that both dads share the task. However, others viewed it differently. My newspaper readers’ comment: Dear Abby: If the biological father wanted to be a part of his daughter’s life he should have made more of an effort to be there for her. The stepdad no doubt put up with all the growing pains associated with raising a teenager as well as other parenting challenges. These are the prerequisites for walking a daughter down the aisle. Although most males can father a child, not all of them can truly be a FATHER. — Stepdad to a Wonderful Daughter Dear Abby: I can’t believe

how ignorant, uncaring and selfish a bride would be to dump her dad on her wedding day. Everyone WILL notice and everyone WILL care. Ladies, unless your father is a total loser who was absent, a drunk, a jailbird, an addict or a deadbeat, walking you down the aisle is HIS privilege — no one else’s. It also shouldn’t be based on how much money he was able or willing to fork over for the wedding. This is the day a real man and father has looked forward to since the day you were born. And to any man who is asked to escort a bride down the aisle: Before agreeing, ask what her situation is with her father. You may be taking a spot you don’t deserve. — Mary in Ohio

Drug manufacturer has info on where meds are made Dear Dr. Gott: How can we know the source (country ASK and producing company) of THE drugs? Ordering drugs through DOCTOR an online company outside the United States, I’ve noted they have come from Germany but are of Indian origin. Are they equivalent to U.S. manufactured drugs and specifications? I’ve heard U.S.-made drugs might have components produced overseas, so how do we know if drugs like this are safe? Does the Food and Drug Administration have any jurisdiction over ingredients made elsewhere for inclusion in U.S. pharmaceuticals? Dear Reader: According to a Consumer Reports article from two years ago, the FDA requires a drug’s original packaging to list the name and address of the company that manufactures, packs or distributes a product. Unfortunately, this information often refers to over-the-counter drugs, because most prescription drugs are rebottled and relabeled at your local pharmacy. Many people obtain a onemonth supply at a time. Those prescriptions that call for, let’s say, 100 tablets might get a factory-sealed original package of 100 pills with the pharmacy labeling affixed. Even in the instance of an OTC in lesser amounts, the information might reveal only where the drug is processed and packaged, not where the ingredients come from. I understand that a person can contact the manufacturer of most drugs to determine where it is manufactured and will receive a satisfactory answer; however, this might take several days, and a patient might choose to begin a medication faster than that. Manufacturing costs, ingredients and labor might be substantially cheaper in other countries. Beyond that, the FDA appears to inspect

GOTT

domestic facilities more frequently than foreign facilities — another reason why drugs manufactured and packaged here are higher in cost. My advice to you is to make a list of your medications. Telephone or otherwise contact the suppliers to request the information you feel is relevant. Determine if the drug or drugs and all ingredients are manufactured, packaged and distributed within the United States without any outside input.

Dear Abby: My daughter wanted her stepfather AND her biological father to be part of her wedding. So her stepdad (my husband) walked her down the aisle to where I was sitting in the first row. I stood up, gave her my handkerchief and kissed her cheek. Then her father stepped out from the row behind me, and her stepdad handed her over to

her father, who walked her the rest of the way to the altar and gave her away. Everyone was happy with this amicable solution. — Joyce in Alabama

Drummer and last surviving band member Ben Sandmel said James “Glen” Croker, a lifelong resident of Lake Charles, La., had been in declining health for several years and that his family thought he had a heart attack. Sandmel said Croker began playing with the band in 1959. The band’s website said Croker’s electric guitar helped evolve the band’s string-band sound, by adding a “swaggering honky-tonk tinge” that included elements of the blues, R&B and rockabilly. The band was founded in 1933 by fiddler Luderin Darbone and accordionist Edwin Duhon. The group last performed in 2005 at LSU’s Manship Theatre. Their 1997 release “Deep Water” garnered a Grammy nomination in the best traditional/folk album category.

LAPD probe threatening Ferguson letter Craig Ferguson managed to crack a few jokes on his talk show Tuesday after receiving an envelope packed with white powder that turned out to be harmless. “Today someone sent an envelope packed with white powder to the show. I offered to test it, but they said ‘no,”’ Ferguson quipped during a studio taping of “The Late Late Show.” The taping went on as scheduled after the Craig Ferguson show received a threatening letter sent to Ferguson. Police Det. Gus Villanueva declined to discuss the nature of the threat against the talk show host, saying only that it was sent from overseas. Two people at CBS Television City, where the show is filmed, were temporarily held in isolation after being exposed to the powder around 3 p.m. They were released after a hazardous materials team screened the powder and found it to be benign.

Stiller to receive British comedy award Ben Stiller is being honored for his comedic contributions by the British Academy of Film and Television.

Stiller will receive the honor at the Brittania Awards on Nov. 30, when actress Helena Bonham Carter and animator John Lasseter are also being recognized.

Body pulled from river is ‘Treme’ actor The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office says the body of an actor in the HBO series Treme, which is filmed in New Orleans, was pulled from the Mississippi River on Wednesday. “Treme” star Wendell Pierce confirmed Michael Showers’ death. Showers played a police officer on the drama. An HBO spokesman did not return an e-mailed message for comment. Showers’ work also includes “The Vampire Diaries,”“Traffic,” and the upcoming film, “Colombiana.” A St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s spokesman says the 44-year-old man lived in Chalmette with his girlfriend, who reported him missing Tuesday after he didn’t return from a night out with a friend in the French Quarter. Authorities are not saying if they think foul play is involved.

Town officials ask ABC show to leave Officials in one well-to-do Connecticut town are asking an ABC hidden-camera show to hit the road. Greenwich officials said that the filming of the show “What Would You Do?” is disruptive. They say they asked the film crew to choose another location for filming. The show sets up morally difficult situations and secretly films people’s reactions. Town officials said having the show set up in front of stores has a negative impact on business. Greenwich police said one of the show’s scenes caused an alarmed resident to ask a store employee to call police.

Al Pacino, cast celebrate film’s legacy LOS ANGELES (AP) — Al Pacino says he got burned while making “Scarface.” Literally, he grabbed the hot barrel of a gun that had just shot 30 rounds during one of Tony Montana’s violent scenes. “My hand stuck to that sucker,” the 71-year-old actor recalled. He couldn’t work for two weeks. Pacino relayed the experience during a discussion with “Scarface” co-stars Steven Bauer, Robert Loggia and F. Murray Abraham and producer Martin Bregman at a party Tuesday heralding the film’s Blu-ray release. Part of the charm of the film, Pacino said, is that it wasn’t initially a hit. “It’s one of my favorites because of its whole evolution,” he said. “It (was) sort of eviscerated after it opened by the press. ... Nobody was fond of it, except it had good audience participation.” He said “it’s almost a miracle” audiences continue to discover and appreciate the film. He wanted to make it after being inspired by Paul Muni’s

The associated press

Al Pacino, center, F. Murray Abraham, left, and Steven Bauer at the “Scarface” Legacy Celebration Event in Los Angeles performance in the 1932 original. Sidney Lumet suggested he make the main character Cuban instead of Italian. Pacino’s “Scarface” is set in 1980s Miami, and Tony Montana is an ambitious immigrant who runs a growing drug empire until he even-

tually collapses under greed and addiction. Pacino’s performance as the gun-wielding, coke-snorting Montana is among his most memorable. He said that during the nine months he was shooting the film, his character practically inhabited him. When a friend’s

yappy little dog lunged at him, Pacino said he cocked back his fist instinctively, as if threatening a punch. The Blu-Ray will be released Sept. 6. “Scarface” is also set to play at 475 theaters nationwide on Aug. 31 for a special one-night engagement.

NBA lockout Griffin begins work at Funny or Die NEW YORK (AP) — Stymied by the NBA lockout, Blake Griffin is going to work for Will Ferrell instead. This week, the Los Angeles Clippers All-Star forward is interning at Funny Or Die, the comedy website co-founded by Ferrell and Adam McKay. Griffin arrived at the site’s L.A. offices Tuesday to begin three days of work in video production. He will help write, shoot, edit and act in several videos for the site. Funny Or Die quickly creates digital comedy videos, often with celebrity guest appearances. Griffin said he’s

Glenn Beck hosts rally in Old City of Jerusalem JERUSALEM (AP) — Conservative Christian commentator Glenn Beck capped a contentious visit to Israel Wednesday by hosting a rally next to a hotly disputed holy site in Jerusalem’s Old City. Hundreds of supporters, including Glenn Israeli politiBeck cians, were on hand to hear the former Fox TV personality in the final leg of his “Restoring Courage” tour of the Holy Land. A small group of protesters held banners saying “Glenn Beck, go home.” Beck’s unabashedly proIsrael, anti-Muslim rhetoric has endeared him to some on Israel’s far-right. But religious figures and left-wing politicians have come together in an unusual alliance appealing to Israelis to shun his embrace. Religious Jews are worried he is here to spread the Christian gospel, while dovish Israelis reject Beck’s support for West Bank Jewish settlements and his criticism of peace efforts.

a big comedy fan and an avid viewer of Funny Or Die. As an intern, he hopes to learn more about film production. Blake “Just to get Griffin an inside look at how things are run here is exciting to me,” Griffin said by phone Tuesday. “I don’t know what interns at Funny Or Die are like, but I’m about to find out, I guess.” Mike Farah, president of production at Funny Or Die,

pledged that Griffin will be treated like other interns. He noted that the 22-year-old Griffin is, after all, about the same age as most of the site’s college interns. (The others, of course, may not be able to dunk over midsize sedans.) “We’re going to put him to work,” said Farah. “He’s shooting a series of videos, and he’s also coming to meetings. He’s basically doing everything that an intern does.” Griffin counts “Old School,” “Wedding Crashers” and “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” among his

favorite movies. On Funny Or Die, he likes Zach Galifianakis’ mock interview series “Between Two Ferns.” “I’ll go see a bad comedy over a good action movie any day,” Griffin said. Griffin, who was last season’s NBA Rookie of the Year and won the Slam Dunk Contest (in which he leaped over a Kia Optima), has been keeping busy during the NBA lockout. He’s done a lot of sponsorship work, been active on Twitter and launched a basketball camp for kids in Oklahoma City.
