Barbour backs $175M in breaks for plants Manufacturers would be in Columbus, Olive Branch By Emily Wagster Pettus and Jack Elliott Jr. The Associated Press

GENERAL’S ADVICE

JACKSON — Gov. Haley Barbour has proposed incentive packages worth $175 million to attract two high-tech economic development projects that would create almost 1,800 new jobs in

Mississippi. On Wednesday, Barbour was huddling with key lawmakers to build support for the projects. Lawmakers will meet in a special session at 10 a.m. Friday to consider them. “We’ll go through our process of deliberations and see whether or not we’ll present it to the

full House for a vote,” said Rep. Percy Watson, D-Hattiesburg, who heads the House Ways and Means Committee. “I anticipate we’ll present it to the full house, but I can’t speak for the committee,” said Watson, who met with Barbour along with Senate Finance Committee chairman Dean Kirby, R-Pearl. Watson’s committee will meet today in Jackson to hear the

First-grader takes knife to school, is suspended By Manivanh Chanprasith mchan@vicksburgpost.com A Dana Road Elementary first-grader who took a knife to school Tuesday has been suspended at least for today while an investigation is completed, Vicksburg Warren School District Superintendent Dr. Eliza-

beth Duran Swinford said this morning. The boy, whose age was not available, apparently kept the knife in his backpack throughout the day until it was spotted by a fourth-grader on a school bus after school, Swinford said. The kitchen knife was taken

from the child without incident, she said, and no injuries were reported. “The fourth-grader took it from the first-grader and gave it to the bus driver,” she said. The child was allowed to attend school the day after the knife was found because the school’s principal, Dr. Ethel

Lassiter, was out Wednesday and appropriate reports were not filed with the district office, Swinford said. The investigation, led by district chief resource officer Dewayne Sims, so far has found that the child did not brandish the knife or show it to anyone while at school,

Fisher Ferry Volunteer Firefighter Nathaniel Williams sprays a brush fire in the woods off Mississippi 27 Wednesday afternoon as David Childers climbs down the hill to take a break from the heat. Firefighter Brian Bresnahan said they were on

their way to another fire, reported on Country Brown Road, when he and his crew passed the unrelated fire and stopped to extinguish it. No cause was found, they said.

Fire off 27 destroys outbuildings, burns 16 acres One of two brush fires reported Wednesday afternoon off Mississippi 27 burned about 16 acres of land and several buildings on Country Brown Road, said Kelly Worthy, coordinator of the Warren County volunteer fire departments. The fires were reported around 4 p.m. Two homes on the Country Brown property were not damaged, he said, but a hay barn and a detached garage were destroyed, and an equipment shed was damaged before the blaze was extinguished around 7 p.m. Country Brown runs off Mississippi 27 about eight miles south of U.S. 80. Worthy said it was unclear how the fire started, but it has been ruled accidental. Power lines were down on the property, but whether that caused the fire or was the result of the fire was not clear, he said. Residents were not home when firefighters arrived but returned while they worked

to control the blaze, said Worthy. No injuries were reported. Firefighters from the Fisher Ferry, Culkin and Bovina volunteer fire departments responded along with agents from the Mississippi Forestry Commission. Some of the Fisher Ferry volunteers, headed to the County Brown Road fire, stopped to extinguish an unrelated brush fire in the woods off Mississippi 27. No structures were reported damaged in that blaze.

Third arrest made in city armed robbery A third suspect has been arrested in an armed robbery reported in the city Sunday night, Sgt. Sandra Williams said. Stacy Bester, 33, 1932 Sky Farm Ave., was arrested by Vicksburg police at 8 a.m.

Wednesday at his home, Williams said. Arrested Tuesday was Gerald Vaughn, 32, 1011 Second North St., and Johnny Earl Thomas, 27, 2213 Pearl St., on Sunday. The three are accused of robbing at gunpoint a man who had given Thomas and a 17-year-old woman a ride from Openwood Street to Cherry and China streets, Williams. The victim was robbed of an unknown amount of cash as Thomas and the woman were leaving the vehicle. All were charged with armed robbery and held at the Warren County Jail. The woman was not charged. The weapon was recovered. Bester and Vaughn were being held on a $50,000 bond each and Thomas on a $35,000 bond.

City woman jailed for shoplifting

Swinford said. The district’s policy is to suspend a student who takes a weapon on campus, she said. The length of the suspension depends on what the investigation finds was the intent.

morning charged with third offense shoplifting. Kimberly Promise, 24, 2603 Clay St., was arrested by Vicksburg police at 12:12 p.m. Wednesday at Walmart on Iowa Boulevard, Vicksburg police Sgt. Sandra Williams said. Promise was being held on a $10,000 bond.

1988 Olds reported stolen on Adams An auto theft was reported Wednesday in the city. A 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88 was reported missing at 10:41 a.m. from a home in the 600 block of Adams Street, Vicksburg police Sgt. Sandra Williams said. The vehicle, Mississippi tag WAH 601, has a black spoiler and luggage rack on the trunk and a Delta Sigma Theta tag posted on the front, she said.

The Vicksburg Zoning Board of Appeals granted variances Wednesday to Lighthouse Baptist Church allowing it to move a planned fellowship hall on its property at 1804 Sky Farm Ave., and to a resident on Windham Street to build a carport at her home. Zoning administrator Dalton McCarty said the board’s actions came at a special meeting Tuesday. He said Lighthouse Baptist Church officials received permission to move the hall because the original site is too close to a creek at the rear of the church property. “They wanted to get it as far away from that creek as possible,” he said. Separately, Rita Ardoin asked the board to reduce the front yard setback on her property on Windham Street from the required 30 feet to 8 feet to install a carport cover in her driveway. McCarty said Ardoin’s house was built in 1968, before the city’s zoning regulations were approved in July 1971, and is closer to the street. He said the house was grandfathered in when the zoning ordinance was passed.

MC sets record with enrollment of 5,270 students CLINTON (AP) — Mississippi College officials said a record 5,270 students have enrolled this fall. Administrators said it’s a gain of 262 students over fall 2010, and numbers have risen across the board. There are now 3,238 undergraduates compared to 3,148 last fall. Graduate enrollment has reached 1,263 students compared to 1,152 last fall. There are 573 students at the MC School of Law in downtown Jackson, up from the 550 students a year ago. MC’s new physician assistant program at the Baptist Healthplex has 28 graduate students enrolled. In partnership with the University of Mississippi Medical Center, federal clinics and other health care facilities in the area, the graduate program is the only one of its type in the state.

U.S. 61 North, I-20 traffic jams

Warren County Deputy Leroy Williams, above, facing south, helps monitor traffic along U.S. 61 North Wednesday after a county dump truck hit a utility pole and wires fell over the highway at County Lane, where the county road department is headquartered. Electricity to about 1,100 Entergy customers was cut, but has been restored, spokesman Don Arnold said. At right, Vicksburg police officer Walter Harris takes a report from Blane Horton, 43, 905 Hook Drive, Jackson, as eastbound traffic backs up on Interstate 20 Wednesday. A car transmission fell from a trailer attached to a Chevrolet pickup driven by George Jones, 72, 150 Buford Drive, denting Horton’s vehicle and causing him to pull aside. No one was injured, police said.

Psychiatric evaluation requested in beheading THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — Lafourche Parish District Attorney Camille “Cam” Morvant has asked a state district judge to let a prosecution psychiatrist investigate whether a man who confessed to beheading his disabled son was sane when the boy was killed. The request for that examination was attached to a standard motion filed Wednesday, asking permission to have a prosecution psychiatrist examine whether Jeremiah Wright, 30, is competent to help his defense against a first-degree murder charge. At the request of defense attorney Kerry Cuccia, two psychiatrists were appointed Monday to consider Wright’s competency to stand trial in the death of 7-year-old Jori Lirette. Cuccia said Wednesday that Wright’s sanity at the time of Lirette’s death would become a matter for court scrutiny only if Wright pleads innocent by reason of insanity. Lirette was killed Aug. 14, and his head left in the yard of the home that Wright shared with the boy and his mother, Jesslyn Lirette, 27.

tencing guidelines called for her to serve a prison term ranging from 30 to 37 months. Lemelle said he agreed to spare Jefferson a prison sentence because she provided “substantial assistance” to federal authorities and because she is caring for her gravely ill daughter, Angela Coleman, who also pleaded guilty in the case. U.S. Attorney Jim Letten said his office didn’t ask for a sentence of home confinement but didn’t object to it, either. “Justice isn’t perfect,” he said, calling Jefferson a “serious offender.” “Did she pay a high price for her transgressions? She did in a lot of ways,” Letten added.

Katia moves across Atlantic with little change in strength MIAMI (AP) — Hurricane Katia is moving across the Atlantic with little change in strength. Maximum sustained winds today were near 75 mph. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says strengthening is expected and Katia could pass the threshold of 111 mph winds to become a major hurricane this weekend. It’s centered about 1,050 miles east of the Leeward Islands and moving west near 18 mph. Jack Beven, a senior hurricane specialist at the center, said it’s too early to tell if Katia will hit the U.S. It is expected to pass north of the Caribbean. Also becoming a concern is a thunderstorm cluster in the Gulf of Mexico, which has a high chance of becoming a tropical depression in the next few days.

Meanwhile, as the flood waters receded, weary residents across the Northeast began pulling soggy furniture and ruined possessions onto their front lawns as they surveyed the damage wrought by Hurricane Irene. The mess of destroyed furniture on Paul Postma’s front lawn looked like a yard sale gone wrong. Over the weekend, Postma had watched as more than 2 feet of rain filled the bottom level of his home in Lincoln Park, N.J. On Wednesday, he was using bleach to wipe down the house’s mud-soaked walls. “None of this has value,” he said. “At least not anymore.” President Barack Obama on Sunday will visit Paterson, N.J., where currents of the Passaic River swept through the city of 150,000, flooding part of downtown and forcing the emergency evacuations of hundreds of people.

Bank robbery suspect sought in Clinton

Ex-N.O. tax assessor avoids prison in corruption plot NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A former New Orleans tax assessor who pleaded guilty to participating in a plot to pocket hundreds of thousands of dollars in government grant money avoided a prison term Wednesday when a judge sentenced her to 15 months of home detention. U.S. District Judge Ivan Lemelle also sentenced Betty Jefferson, a sister of former U.S. Rep. William Jefferson, to five years of probation and ordered her to pay nearly $700,000 in restitution to the state of Louisiana and the Internal Revenue Service. Jefferson, 72, had faced a maximum sentence of five years in prison. Federal sen-

Jefferson apologized for her “wrong decisions” before Lemelle sentenced her. “It has taken a toll on the whole family, not just me,” she said. Jefferson resigned from her elected position after she and Coleman pleaded guilty last year to charges that included conspiracy to commit mail fraud and money laundering. Coleman’s sentencing has been postponed indefinitely. Lemelle said she has been hospitalized for an undisclosed “grave medical condition” that might prevent her from being sentenced at all. “Miracles happen, so who knows?” he said. Betty Jefferson was a gov-

ernment witness during a July retrial for former state Rep. Renee Gill Pratt, who was convicted of conspiring to loot more than $1 million from taxpayerfunded charities controlled by Jefferson family members. The grant money Gill Pratt helped secure was supposed to help pregnant teens, at-risk youths and other needy residents of New Orleans, but prosecutors said the nonprofits largely were shams. Gill Pratt, who served on the New Orleans city council after leaving the House, also was accused of misappropriating four vehicles that DaimlerChrysler had donated to the city after Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005.

CLINTON (AP) — Clinton police and Hinds County sheriff’s deputies are investigating a robbery at the Copiah Bank. Police Chief Don Byington said the holdup could be related to the robbery of another Clinton bank two weeks ago. Byington said a man entered Merchants and Farmers Bank on Aug. 15 and handed a teller a note, but didn’t display a weapon. Byington said several simi-

larities between the suspect’s description and his mode of robbery have prompted police to investigate a possible link between the holdups. He said the suspect entered Copiah Bank shortly before 10 a.m. Wednesday. Byington said after the man displayed a pistol and demanded money, he fled on foot with an unknown amount of cash and was picked up by someone else on a road near the bank.

Body must protect its powers President Barack Obama’s strategy is clear: If Congress doesn’t adopt his agenda, he’ll do it himself. The expansion of executive power is on display again with the president’s plan to virtually stop enforcing immigration laws. Congress failed to pass the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, because opponents worry it is a form of amnesty for illegal immigrants. Instead of making the case for the act, which would give illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children an easier path to citizenship if they attend college or serve in the military, Obama is bypassing the legislative branch and enacting by executive order something that very closely resembles the proposed act, only bigger. Last week, the Obama administration announced that the government would stop deporting illegal immigrants who aren’t a

threat to public safety. In addition, it will review 300,000 illegal immigrant cases currently in deportation proceedings. Obama has said he’s searching for allies in Congress to help him pass a new immigration law. But it sure doesn’t look that way. As James Carafano, an expert in defense and homeland security at the Heritage Foundation observes, “It is difficult to imagine how the president believes he is going to find ‘partners in Congress’ by refusing to enforce immigration law against the majority of those who are in violation of the law.” A lack of congressional partners has not deterred the president on a variety of fronts. Obama effectively rewrote bankruptcy rules to facilitate the automotive bailout, relieving the legislative branch of its responsibility to write laws. Carbon cap-and-trade failed to get through Congress, but now it’s being steadily implemented

by the Environmental Protection Agency. Frustrated by Congress’ failure to restructure the No Child Left Behind Act, Obama went around lawmakers and issued an executive order that significantly reshapes a law originally drafted by Congress. He has also appointed at least 30 “czars” who serve as de facto cabinet officers, in charge of everything from AIDS to Afghanistan, without the inconvenience of the Senate’s advise and consent process. When President George W. Bush was using the threat from terrorism to expand the powers of the presidency, the left howled, and rightly so. But Bush’s power grabs pale in comparison to Obama’s. A self-respecting Congress would act to protect its authority from being usurped by the executive branch.

IHL stability important as the reins of state government change hands STARKVILLE — Word that the state College Board has substantially extended the contracts of the chief executive officers of Mississippi State University and the University of Mississippi should be greeted with a communal sigh of relief at the state Capitol. Both MSU president Mark Keenum and Ole Miss chancellor Dan Jones, M.D., received four-year contract extensions. Both received praise from the College Board, as well as from the leaders of their respective faculties. “MSU is fortunate to have Mark Keenum as our president,” said Meghan Millea, president of the MSU Faculty Senate. “He skillfully manages the immediate challenges and opportunities of the university, while maintaining a longterm vision for the institution that respects the university’s history, fosters innovations in research and instruction, and encourages discipline-based service to academic, local and global communities.

Stability in the leadership of the state’s higher education institutions is important at this juncture in state government.

SalTer “He acts with integrity, respect for diversity and enthusiasm. He has fostered open lines of communication between faculty, students, staff and administration which contributes to an environment of mutual respect. We can all share in the energy, positive attitude and pride that Dr. Keenum brings to the campus.” Noel Wilkin, associate provost and Pharmacy Administration professor, said of Jones: “The university creates opportunities. Chancellor Jones recognizes that we can

play a significant role in improving the lives of others. This responsibility cuts across our many efforts in research, teaching and service. His efforts and passion for making positive, transformational changes in people’s lives have energized this aspect of who we are as a community.” Martha Dunagin Saunders has proved an effective leader as the University of Southern Mississippi’s first woman president. John M. Hilpert has led Delta State University in an able manner. Successful

presidential searches were concluded that brought Dr. M. Christopher Brown III to the presidency of Alcorn State University and Carolyn Meyers to the presidency of Jackson State University. Stagnant enrollment and budget challenges continue to make Mississippi Valley State University president Donna Oliver’s task difficult. A College Board search is under way for a new, permanent president of Mississippi University for Women. Stability in the leadership of the state’s higher education institutions is important at this juncture in state government. In Republican nominee Tate Reeves, state voters have in essence already elected a new lieutenant governor and leader of the state Senate. The retirement of Democratic House Speaker Billy McCoy guarantees a new leader for the state House of Representatives — and the November elections could bring that chamber closer to a philosophical change if not a par-

tisan one when the new speaker is chosen. In either Republican Phil Bryant or Democrat Johnny DuPree, the state will have a new governor as well after Haley Barbour’s gamechanging eight year tenure as perhaps the strongest governor in modern history. In the prior fiscal year, the state spent about $5,540 on each MVSU student and $5,362 on those at MUW. JSU got $4,202 per student and Ole Miss received $4,247, based on current enrollment figures and fiscal 2012 allocations. Other schools fell between those figures. The state’s new leadership team in 2012 will face Institutions of Higher Learning funding decisions that must bridge those gaps in the face of growing enrollment and declining percentage of state support. That’s a tough task. •

leaving money or stocks, etc., in a child’s name is never a good thing to do. Right now this cute little boy might be well-behaved and excelling in school. But what happens if he gets into his teens and decides to hang out with the wrong crowd and becomes a thug who drops out of school? Unless there is some compelling reason she does not trust the parents to handle this money for their son, she would be advised to give the money to them in their names. Another thing she can do is to open a Coverdale IRA, a financial product where the money is put away to pay exclusively for education. Do the research to find out what would work best for her.

LONDON (AP) — Uncensored copies of WikiLeaks’ massive tome of U.S. State Department cables were circulating freely across the Internet today, a dramatic development which leaves a new batch of U.S. sources vulnerable to embarrassment and potential retribution. WikiLeaks has blamed Britain’s Guardian newspaper for the breach, saying that

an investigative journalist had revealed the password needed to unlock the files in a book published earlier this Julian year. GuardAssange ian journalists said that sloppy security at Julian Assange’s anti-secrecy

website helped expose the cables to the world. In a 1,600-word-long editorial posted to the Internet, WikiLeaks accused the Guardian’s investigative reporter David Leigh of betrayal, saying that his disclosure had jeopardized months of “careful work” WikiLeaks had undertaken to redact and publish the cables. “Revolutions and reforms

Petraeus retires, saying cuts must not hurt military WASHINGTON — David Petraeus, the general widely credited with rescuing a failing U.S. war in Iraq, retired from the Army on Wednesday with a word of warning: Coming budget cuts must not impair the U.S. military’s ability to fight a full range of conflicts, from major land wars to Iraq-like insurgencies. Petraeus, 58, used his farewell speech to thank those who have mentored and supported him in 37 years of service. But he also made clear his concern that political pressures to lighten the nation’s debt burden could force the military to retrench in ways that hurt U.S. security and U.S. troops. “As our nation contemplates difficult budget decisions, I know that our leaders will remember that our people, our men and women in uniform, are our military,” he told an audience sprinkled with figures from his past, including former West Point classmates. “And that taking care of them and their families must be our paramount objective. Beyond that it will be imperative to maintain a force that not only capitalizes on the extraordinary experience and expertise in our ranks today but also maintains the versatility and flexibility that have been developed over the past decade.”

Government sues to block AT&T, T-Mobile merger WASHINGTON — The Justice Department took the unusual step Wednesday to try to block AT&T’s $39 billion purchase of T-Mobile USA, arguing that the proposed merger would lead to higher wireless prices, less innovation and fewer choices for consumers. Now AT&T, the nation’s No. 2 wireless carrier, and No. 4 T-Mobile are plotting a legal response to challenge federal regulators. In its civil antitrust lawsuit, the Justice Department said the merger would stifle competition in the wireless industry. The deal, which is still under review at the Federal Communications Commission, would catapult AT&T past Verizon Wireless to become the nation’s largest wireless carrier, leaving Sprint Nextel as a distant third-place player and certain to struggle. AT&T quickly signaled that it won’t abandon the transaction.

Manufacturing growth spurs stocks to rise NEW YORK — Stocks are rising after a report showed that U.S. manufacturing grew for a 25th straight month in August. The Institute for Supply Management’s index indicated that manufacturing expanded again in last month. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had expected a contraction. The Dow Jones industrial average immediately turned higher after the report came out at 10 a.m. By 10:20 a.m. the Dow was up 42 points, or 0.4 percent, at 11,655. It was down as many as 46 points in early trading. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 3, or 0.3 percent, at 1,222. The Nasdaq composite index rose 10, or 0.4 percent, at 2,589.

Libyan rebels catch Gadhafi top official TRIPOLI, Libya — Rebels hunting the top officials in Moammar’s Gadhafi’s ousted regime have captured his foreign minister and are closing in on Gadhafi himself, rebel officials said today. The announcement, made on the 42nd anniversary of the coup that brought Gadhafi to power, also came as rebels forces pressed toward three major bastions of the crumbling regime, including Gadhafi’s hometown. “The regime is dying,” rebel council spokesman Abdel-Hafiz Ghoga said late Wednesday, after two of Gadhafi’s sons made conflicting statements on Arab television stations — with one vowing to fight until death and the other offering to negotiate a truce.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A national infrastructure bank that would entice private investors into road and rail projects could be a major part of the jobs package that President Barack Obama hopes will finally bring relief to the unemployed. The White House hasn’t divulged the contents of the package that Obama is to unveil in an address to a joint session of Congress next week. But the president has pushed the idea of an infraPresident Barack structure Obama bank in recent speeches and has praised Senate and House bills that create such a government-sponsored lending institution. Whether the bank, which would need time to organize, could have any real impact on the jobs situation in the coming year — and particularly before the November 2012 elections — is in dispute. Obama seems to think it would. “We’ve got the potential to create an infrastructure bank that could put construction workers to work right now, rebuilding our roads and our bridges and our vital infrastructure all across the country,” he said at a news conference in July.

Lawmakers also will consider a $100 million package for HCL CleanTech, which has offices in Oxford, N.C., and Israel. Barbour said the company plans to establish its headquarters in Olive Branch, build a small-scale commercial facility and research and development center in Grenada, and construct three large-scale commercial plants in the Booneville, Hattiesburg and Natchez areas. The company will create 800 jobs with an average salary of $67,000 plus benefits. Later, HCL CleanTech will move its pilot facility to Mississippi. HCL CleanTech converts biomass to sugars that can be used as industrial bioproducts. “Calisolar and HCL CleanTech are examples of how Mississippi has become a top site for high-tech, highskilled manufacturing,” Gov. Barbour said in his statement. Early Wednesday, Republican Sen. Terry Brown of

Columbus said he has been briefed by local development officials about plans by Calisolar to open a plant. Officials say Ohio also was competing for the Calisolar plant. Calisolar officials did not immediately return calls to the AP on Wednesday. The chairman of Calisolar’s board of directors is John D. Correnti, according to the company’s website. “I trust him with my life,” Brown said of Correnti, who was CEO of a steel mill that opened in Columbus, Miss., in 2007. The mill originally was called SeverCorr. It was taken over by a Russian company and changed its name to Severstal. The state issues bonds as long-term debt to finance big projects such as the construction or repair of highways or public buildings. After legislators authorize bond debt, bonds are issued by the state Bond Commission, made up of the governor, the state treasurer and the attorney general. The commission’s next meeting is Sept. 19. Barbour said the special session is timed to occur before that meeting “so that these large projects can get started this winter...”

Depot

PRECISION FORECAST

Continued from Page A1. board members were to meet today with Vicksburg Buildings and Inspection Department Director Victor GrayLewis and other city officials at the depot to discuss the building. Gray-Lewis is the city’s project director for the depot restoration. Winfield’s comments came as the City Board discussed two supplemental agreements to the city’s contract with Kenneth R. Thompson Jr., Builder to repair flood-damaged areas in the 105-year-old depot. The project is expected to be completed by Oct. 5. Thompson is restoring the depot. He said the board pushed the project along at the request of the VCVB and Vicksburg Main Street, both of which have signed letters of understanding to lease office space in the depot for $500 a month once it is finished. The VCVB also agreed to contribute $150,000 toward the city’s match of a $1.65 million Mississippi Department of Transportation grant to renovate the building. Kirklin said last week that the VCVB has not signed a lease with the city and no

money has changed hands. Main Street chairman Ronnie Bounds said Main Street is keeping its commitment. “I was taken aback (by the VCVB’s action),” Winfield said. “I feel this administration has taken this project and moved it along.” The board Wednesday approved a supplemental agreement with Kenneth R. Thomspon estimated at $23,000 to repair damage to the depot from the 2011 flood. The Mississippi River dumped 4 feet of water into the building as it reached 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. The high water halted work on the depot, which became a national symbol of the flooding in Vicksburg. Work resumed in April. Gray-Lewis said the supplement covers interior work in the building that was not covered under the original agreement. He said another amendment estimated at $33,000 is expected in the near future to cover damage that was not covered by Thompson’s insurance. He said the city will submit the bills from both contract amendments to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for reimbursement.

County budget is expected during a public hearing at 9 a.m. Tuesday. City officials are expected to vote at their regular meeting, at 10 a.m. the same day. The city’s new budget is projected to be $28.79 million; the county’s, $14,834,609 million.

Supply budgets for each departments were increased by $35,000, with most of the money going to pay for gasoline and oil. Both departments had decreases in services and/or capital budgets. Police Chief Walter Armstrong said his department had a total bill of $110,463 in overtime and supplies for the flood. The total supply budget increases for all departments accounted for $120,000, with most of the money going for fuel, Whittington said. The administration department’s budget took the biggest decrease, with $175,215, including $107,215 in services. Whittington said the services budget was money in anticipation of possible pay raises in the administration department, but was not used. “I took that money and spread it among other departments,” he said. “We had several departments that had money budgeted for purchases, services or capital improvements that was not used. I decreased those budgets and transferred the money to other departments that needed it.” Administration’s debt service budget was decreased by $62,000, which, Whittington said, was money for several equipment lease purchases that were not made during the fiscal year. Other departments with major amendments included: • Building maintenance: $47,350 increase in personnel, $9,250 decrease in supplies, $1,000 decrease in services. • Inspection: $37,800 decrease in personnel, $26,400 in capital improvements. Whittington said the department lost an employee. He said the $26,400 in capital was for a new roof for the inspection department’s building. The roof was patched, and a new roof is in the 2012 budget. • Emergency Management: $6,500 decrease in supplies, $45,600 decrease in services and $600 increase in capital. The $45,600 was for projects that were never acquired. • Right of way: $55,500 decrease in personnel. $40,000 increase in supplies and $8,000 increase in services. The decrease in personnel is the retirement of right of way director Ray

Atlanta Braves closer eclipsed the rookie saves record with his 41st in a 3-1 win over the Washington Nationals on Wednesday.

Sidelines Braves beat Nationals, 3-1

ATLANTA (AP) — Two milestone home runs — Chipper Jones’ 450th and Derek Lowe’s first — gave Atlanta the early lead and Lowe combined with three relievers on a threehitter as the Braves beat the Washington Nationals 3-1 on Wednesday night. Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 41st save, setting a major league rookie record. Ian Desmond’s singles in the first and third innings were the only hits allowed by Lowe (9-12) until Michael Morse led off the seventh with a homer. John Lannan (8-11) gave up seven hits and three runs, two earned, in seven innings as his streak of five straight wins over the Braves ended. Jones hit his 14th homer in the second inning. Lowe, 38, lined a 3-2 pitch over the wall in left field in the third inning for his first homer in his 405th career at-bat. Lowe, a career .149 hitter, entered the game hitting .182 this season. Lowe looked surprised as he watched the ball clear the wall. Grinning widely, he was welcomed in the Braves’ dugout by enthusiastic teammates who pounded his helmet and back and offered high-fives. The Braves said the Elias Sports Bureau reported Lowe is only the third pitcher since 1900 to hit his first career homer at 38 or older. Randy Johnson was 40 when he hit his first homer in 2003. Preacher Roe was 38 when he hit his first homer in 1953.

Vicksburg readies for potent Richwood By Jeff Byrd jbyrd@vicksburgpost.com A week off has helped Vicksburg. Whether that translates into a much improved team Friday night in Monroe remains to be seen. The Gators (0-1) return from an open date to face the Richwood Rams at 7. Vicksburg was beaten soundly by Brandon, 47-14, on Aug. 19 at the Red Carpet Bowl at Viking Stadium. Gators coach Alonzo Stevens said despite the loss, there were enough good spots for

Warren Central hits the road Flashes face pivotal contest

By Steve Wilson swilson@vicksburgpost.com

Warren Central coach Josh Morgan is not prone to hyperbole. But when he was watching film from Hattiesburg, Friday’s opponent, he couldn’t believe his eyes. When coaches watch film, they want to record all of the different formations and down/ distance playcalling tendencies to formulate a gameplan. He had burned through four full pages to record all of the different formations that Hattiesburg used in its first two games. Warren Central (0-2) will get its first road test on Friday in Hattiesburg, a team with wins over Murrah and a loss to Pine Belt rival Laurel. “They have more formations than anyone I’ve ever seen,” Morgan said. “They’re trying to catch you off guard, put a little bit of doubt in your head. We’ve got to take care of our assignments and not worry about all of the smoke and mirrors.” After last week’s disappointing overtime loss to Callaway, Morgan was happy with the effort from his young team, but he wants them to finish. “Against Callaway, we

Before the season, Hinds AHS was picked to finish last in Region 4-1A by the league’s coaches. After two games, it looks like St. Aloysius might be poised to take that unenviable honor. When the teams play Friday night in Utica, it’ll be a pivotal game for both. Hinds trying to capitalize on its first win in nearly a year, St. Al going for its first of the season. With tougher stretches ahead, the region opener is also a chance for both teams to pick up a crucial win and maintain any playoff dreams that might harbor. “It’s a very important game,” Hinds coach Michael Fields said. “You want to come out of here with a victory. If you can’t come out of See St. Al, Page B3.

Criticism of offensive strategy is often unwarranted Pinch yourself if you’ve heard this criticism of a coaching staff before. “By golly, I wish we’d open up the offense a bit.” What does that really mean? Does that mean that fan wants his team to morph from whatever offense it runs into a run and shoot team like those favored by Southern Methodist coach June Jones? Or does it mean the fan wants more gadget plays that can be used once or twice a season like a halfback pass (used twice by Porters Chapel last week) or a reverse? Either way, this sort of criticism arises from folks whose only experience with football is PS3 or Xbox. First of all, trick plays are just that, tricks. They can

be a big momentum swing, positively or negatively. They make for excellent fodder for ESPN Sports Center highlights and can win games in some cases — Boise State’s beautifully executed three game-winning trick plays in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl against Oklahoma come to mind. But they are like lawyers and nuclear weapons, to be used sparingly, if at all. Secondly, no matter what system a team runs, be it

a “West Coast,” a spread option, a wishbone, an I-formation power running game or a single wing, the offensive line has to dominate the line of scrimmage. A team can have plenty of talented, glamorous skill position players, but if the line doesn’t block as a cohesive unit, opening holes in the running game and keeping pressure off the quarterback during passing downs, it won’t matter. The type of system a team runs is determined by the kind of talent a coach possesses. If a team doesn’t have a quarterback with a strong arm and accuracy, a passing offense will be a disaster. If a team doesn’t have a blocking bulldozer of a fullback, an I-formation running game won’t work at all. A spread

option won’t succeed without a dual-threat quarterback. Good coaches can tailor their systems to the available talent. A poor example of this was Florida last season under Urban Meyer. Meyer and his coaching staff tried to use a pocket passer, John Brantley, in an offense designed around Tim Tebow. It didn’t work and Brantley had a disastrous season. Every system has its proponents, but as the old saying goes, it’s not the Xs and Os, but the Jimmys and Joes. If a team doesn’t have gamebreakers in the skill positions and linemen who are dominant, it won’t matter what kind of system a team runs. Another criticism is that a team is too conservative on fill-in-the-blank down.

There’s probably a reason for that. Coaches laboriously pore over film, cataloging tendencies and finding what play calls would work in each down and distance. Play callers are usually constrained by the importance of first down, because a small gain on first down changes what can be called on second and third downs. Nobody wants to be in third down and Rankin County to go every time. Systems are designed to put players in a position to succeed. They aren’t just dreamed up on a whim. •

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Texas A&M will leave Big 12 conference HOUSTON — Texas A&M announced that it will leave the Big 12 Conference by July 2012 if it can find another home, preferably in the Southeastern Conference. The decision could set off another round of conference realignment in college sports and it raises questions about the future of the Big 12, which is starting the football season with 10 teams after losing Nebraska and Colorado.

MLB Braves acquire Wilson, Diaz in two trades ATLANTA — The Atlanta Braves have added middle infield depth for the final month of the regular season, acquiring Jack Wilson from the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night for a player to be named. The Braves, who acquired outfielder Matt Diaz earlier Wednesday, also obtained cash from Seattle in the deal.

Feds drop remaining charges against Bonds SAN FRANCISCO — Federal prosecutors dropped all the remaining charges against Barry Bonds on Wednesday, days after a judge upheld the slugger’s conviction on an obstruction of justice count.

tennis Venus bows out of U.S. Open NEW YORK — Two-time U.S. Open champion Venus Williams withdrew from this year’s tournament on Wednesday. One of tennis’ biggest stars revealed she had recently been diagnosed with Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disease that has been sapping her energy all summer and made it too much for her to go on at this, the season’s last Grand Slam. The illness is not normally considered career threatening — dry eyes and dry mouth are the most common symptoms and sometimes fatigue and sore joints set in, as well. On the court Wednesday, Andy Roddick — who used to be America’s best on the men’s side — needed 2 hours, 57 minutes to defeat 96th-ranked Michael Russell 6-2, 6-4, 4-6, 7-5. Fourth-seeded Andy Murray, No. 12 Gilles Simon and No. 18 Juan Martin del Potro also won. Women’s winners included No. 2 Vera Zvonareva, the runner-up at the U.S. Open and Wimbledon in 2010, and No. 9 Sam Stosur, who reached last year’s French Open

BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Sept. 1 1984 — Willie Totten of Mississippi Valley State passes for a Division I-AA record 536 yards and nine touchdowns in an 86-0 rout of Kentucky State. Jerry Rice catches 17 passes for 294 yards and five touchdowns and breaks his own Division I-AA record for receiving yards. 1998 — Mark McGwire breaks Hack Wilson’s 68-year-old National League record for home runs in a season, hitting his 56th and 57th in the St. Louis Cardinals’ victory over the Florida Marlins. 2007 — Appalachian State 34, No. 5 Michigan 32. Julian Rauch’s 24-yard field goal with 26 seconds left puts the Mountaineers ahead of the Wolverines and Corey Lynch blocks a field goal in the final seconds to seal one of college football’s biggest upsets. 2007 — Clay Buchholz throws a no-hitter in his second major league start, just hours after being called up by the Boston Red Sox. Buchholz strikes out nine, walks three and hits one batter to give the Red Sox a 10-0 victory over Baltimore.

Mississippi State Eagles open district play at winless Ben’s Ford opens at Memphis prep football

By Steve Wilson swilson@vicksburgpost.com

Porters Chapel and Ben’s Ford are similar in two respects. Both have an Eagle as their mascot. Both returned to 11-man football after a hiatus. Friday, Porters Chapel (2-0) travels to Bogalusa to play Ben’s Ford, a team in its third year of playing 11-man football. Ben’s Ford is 1-21 in their first two seasons back from a 20-year hiatus from playing 11-man football. Despite an 0-2 record with big losses to Amite Christian (48-14) and Heidelberg (36-8), Ben’s Ford will be PCA’s district opener and don’t count on PCA taking its opponent lightly as Ben’s Ford is better than its record indicates. “They turned the ball over against Heidelberg a couple of times in the first half and were down 37-0,” PCA coach Wade Patrick said. “But they really should’ve been in a 7-7 game.” The key for the Eagles will be cleaning up the mistakes from last week’s overtime win over Deer Creek. Too many times, the defense was not lined up properly and gave up too many big plays as a result. Quarterback Jonah Masterson was sacked more times than a load of groceries as Deer Creek applied pressure effectively with six and sometimes seven defenders, disrupting his rhythm and hitting him constantly. “There are a lot of mistakes we have to correct,” Patrick said. “I made some mistakes

PCA’s defense lines up against Deer Creek’s offense last week.

On the air 7 p.m. Friday, 104.5 FM PCA at Ben’s Ford with some calls where things were open downfield. Things were there and plays were there to be made. Things were open in the passing game and the running game. If we made this block, this play is there. If we have a second more to throw, this play. The kids could see it on film and it was a great learning experience. The positives we can take are that the plays are there, we just need to execute.” But first-year coach Wade Patrick liked the resolve and the fight of his team to battle back, to rise to the occasion and prevail. “They were down at halftime

and I wanted to see how they would respond when someone starts moving the ball or scoring on them, because you’re not going to shut everybody out,” Patrick said. “They were were down on themselves at halftime. As bad as we played, I told them that we were just one play away from turning around the momentum, which we did with the long pass. “We did what we had to do to get the win and as they always say, an ugly win is better than a pretty loss any day.” Ben’s Ford runs out of a double-wing and the Maryland I-formation, which looks like a conventional I-formation except for an extra fullback lined up behind the quarterback and in front of the halfback. Senior Cameron Chatellier and eighth-grader Kayln Stewart will handle the ball-carrying duties for Ben’s Ford.

While the Maryland-I is a relatively uncommon formation, Patrick shrugs it off as just another formational wrinkle. “It’s unconventional, sure, but it’s just an I-formation with an extra fullback,” Patrick said. The biggest thing the Eagles intend to do is to be balanced on offense. Patrick will use whatever offensive means — be it a steady diet of tailbacks Kawayne Gaston and Peter Harris pounding the football on the ground or Masterson spreading the football to multiple receivers — to earn a victory. “If we have to pass it 50 times to get a win, we’ll do that and if we have to run it 50 times to get a win, we’ll do that,” Patrick said. “We’ve got to be prepared to respond to what the defense is taking away from us.”

Cougars aim for a rebound against Copiah From staff reports Just two weeks in, it’s already shaping up as an odd season for Central Hinds. The Cougars blew an 18-point halftime lead in their opener and lost when a blocked field goal was returned for a touchdown in the last two minutes. Then, last week, they rallied from a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit against Bowling Green only to lose in overtime, 33-30. The two losses have been by a total of four points, and coach Todd Montgomery said it shows the razor-thin line Central Hinds will walk this season. “We’ve got a small margin of error. We have opportunities to score touchdowns, we’ve got to score touchdowns. We have an opportunity to make tackles, we have to make them,” Montgomery said. “We’re not as good as we were last year. We need to make those plays.”

On Friday, Central Hinds hosts a Copiah Academy (1-1) team coming off a 21-13 loss to Brookhaven Academy. Although Central Hinds doesn’t play a district game until Oct. 7, Montgomery said September is a crucial stretch for his squad. “No doubt, we’ve got to win some of these games in September. Not just for our confidence level, but to get on a roll. You’d like to win a few heading into district,” Montgomery said.

Claiborne Academy at Tallulah Academy Still licking its wounds from a pair of mistake-filled losses, Tallulah Academy (0-2) begins its District 3-A schedule Friday night at home against Claiborne Academy (1-1). The game represents a fresh start for Tallulah, which lost a close game against Park Place Christian

and then was manhandled by Lee, Ark., last week. “It’ll be great to get that first (win). Now that we’re in the district schedule, all the other games don’t matter,” Tallulah coach Chris Busby said. “Getting a win would help our confidence tremendously. Then, it’s Claiborne, which would be big for the program. We would benefit more from a win than we would from a loss.”

MHSAA Port Gibson at Jefferson County Port Gibson (2-0) looks

to keeps its early season momentum going when it heads south to Fayette to battle Jefferson County (1-1). The Blue Waves destroyed a Coahoma County club that won 11 games last season, 49-6. Junior quarterback Silento Sayles tossed three touchdown passes to pace the Blue Waves. One went to Mississippi State commit Adarius Barnes, another to Calvon Smith and the third to Tommy McCaplin. Jefferson County will present coach Lynn Lang and his Blue Waves with their biggest challenge of the season. The Tigers opened the season with a 27-18 win over defending MAIS A champion Trinity Episcopal. They followed with a 27-20 loss to Class 6A Natchez. In the two games, Jefferson County has shown a potent offense led by quarterback Monroe Barnes. He has completed 37 of 67 passes for 447 yards and five touchdowns.

Continued from Page B1. Brandon,” Stevens said. “The mistakes put our defense’s back against the wall.” The bright spot for the Gators was the play of the secondary. A.J. Stamps and Clyde Kendrick each had a first-half interception near the end zone to keep Vicksburg in the game for a half. “I think we have one of the finest secondaries in the state,” Stevens said. “Lamar Anthony was everywhere, and then you have Stamps,

Kendrick and Jonathan Tenner.” The Gators played Brandon without its top two linebackers, ShaQuan James and Eli Brown. Brown, a 6-2, 215pound senior, was held out with a shoulder issue. Both players will start against Richwood. “Brown’s ready and we’re at full strength,” Stevens said. On offense, Stevens and his staff addressed their issues with the offensive line.

“We worked a lot on tackling and blocking last week,” Stevens said. “Our center, Kyle Ross, made progress during the week. J.J. (Mounger) is coming along. We still need to keep working on our guard play, but I like my tackles with Norman (Price) and (Jeremy) Hill.” What Stevens would like to see more is a running game. The Gators ran just 16 times against Brandon for 59 yards. “(Cameron) Cooksey threw

43 times against Brandon, but I feel we a great young back, Darius Youngblood, and we’ll run more,” Stevens said. Cooksey said he expects a better performance at Richwood. He completed 20-of-43 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns. Stamps was the top target with seven catches for 132 yards. Richwood beat Vicksburg 34-7 at Memorial Stadium last year. The Rams went on to finish 6-6.

the lone TD pass out of the pair. Brown slides over to receiver when Myers is at QB (four catches, 78 yards), making him a threat for wide receiver passing plays. Their top targets, Brandon Acker (10 catches, 131 yards) and Tony Bridges (four catches, 48 yards) make for an excellent receiver combination. Bridges is also a dangerous punt return threat, averaging 19.8 yards per return.

But the Vikings have found a playmaker of their own, Kourey Davis. Davis is a triple threat with the ability to catch passes, run or even throw and new offensive coordinator Rob Morgan has been taking advantage of the 6-foot-5 speedster’s talents. Against Callaway, Davis had 111 receiving yards, 57 rushing yards and two touchdowns. And he did a good job defensively against Pearl wideout D.J. Thompson in

the opener, holding him to just 67 receiving yards. “He’s doing what we thought he was going to do,” Morgan said. “We’re very pleased in his progression. Coach (Rob Morgan) is doing a great job of putting the ball in his hands in a lot of different packages. He’s a difference maker and he needs to understand how good he can be.”

WC Continued from Page B1. there.” After making a big improvement from the first game to the second, the Vikings will need to finish if they are to earn a victory against a tough Hattiesburg team. The Tigers (1-1) are unusual in that they use a two-quarterback platoon and both quarterbacks are dual threats. Darien Brown leads the team in rushing (20 carries, 126 yards), while Cameron Myers, a freshman, has

STARKVILLE— Like most football teams, Mississippi State usually spends a lot of time in film study during the week, trying to dissect the strengths and weaknesses of the upcoming opponent. The problem is that might be useless for tonight’s season opener against the Memphis Tigers at the Liberty Bowl in Memphis. The Tigers are coming off a horrendous 1-11 season, and the result was an understandable overhaul of the roster. Very few familiar faces return on either offense or defense, making Mississippi State’s film study an inexact science at best. That means Bulldogs’ coach Dan Mullen has had to take a different approach. “The first game has to be focused on you,” Mullen said. “ ... Our focus in these opening games has to be are we taking care of the football and are we scoring in the red zone when we have the opportunity to do it? Do we have 11 guys running to the ball and not giving up on the play? Are we creating turnovers?”

On the air 7 p.m. FSN Radio: 105.5 FM Mississippi State at Memphis Last season, the answer to most of those questions was yes. That’s why Mississippi State had its best season in a decade, finishing with a 9-4 record that included a Gator Bowl victory over Michigan. Now with 15 starters returning, the 20th-ranked Bulldogs are facing their highest expectations in a long time. Fan support for the program has soared. Earlier in the week, student tickets sold out in just a few days, and overall demand for tickets has been so high that athletic director Scott Stricklin has presented plans for Davis Wade Stadium’s expansion from its current capacity of about 55,000. Now it’s the Bulldogs’ task to deliver. “I’m just happy everyone’s bought in,” Mullen said. “If you change the way you think and everybody believes in what you’re going to do you can accomplish anything.”

St. Al Continued from Page B1. here with a victory, you’re looking at a hard road.” St. Al’s road has already been a bumpy one. The Flashes have scored one offensive touchdown in their first two games and were shut out by Greenville-St. Joe last Friday. In the loss to GreenvilleSt. Joe, St. Al only totaled 57 yards. Smithhart said a young team and small roster — 18 of the 26 players are freshmen or sophomores — was largely to blame. “We’ve got to get the offense going. If we give Carlton (Campbell) any kind of crack, he can take it to the house. We’re letting people take it to us. We’ve got to take it to them,” Smithhart said. “I think we got better from the first game to the second, and we’ll continue to get better as we settle in.” Fields can sympathize with the struggles of Smithhart and the Flashes. His War Dawgs finished 1-9 in 2010, which led to their last-place ranking in Region 4-1A’s preseason poll. So far, however, Hinds is looking like a team on the rise. It lost in four overtimes to Raymond in the season opener, then crushed Richland 39-0 last week. The victory was Hinds’ first since Sept. 10, 2010 and brought Fields a sense of

On the air Friday, 7:30 p.m. 101.3 FM St. Aloysius at Hinds AHS relief. “It felt a lot better waking up Saturday morning than in the past. Saturday mornings have been torture for me,” Fields said with a laugh. “Like I told our guys, winners like that feeling of winning. So let’s keep winning.” Hinds’ resurgence has been led by quarterback Ledarion Robinson. The senior has rushed for seven touchdowns so far on 32 carries. “They’re fast. They’ve got three or four guys that can run the football and they’re pretty good on defense,” Smithhart said. Despite being located about 20 miles apart, this is the first time St. Al and Hinds AHS have played each other. The two schools were in different classifications until this season. Because of their close proximity, both Fields and Smithhart were hopeful of building a friendly rivalry. “I’ve got a lot of respect for Coach Smithhart and his program,” Fields said. “I’m hoping we can both be on top of the food chain before long.”

Robert Downey Jr., wife expecting child Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, Susan, are expecting their first child together. A representative for the 46-year-old actor confirmed a report Wednesday on People magazine’s website. The baby is due early next year. The couple were married in 2005. They met on the set of the film “Gothika,” which Susan coproduced. Downey has a teenage son, Indio, with ex-wife Robert Downey Jr. Deborah Falconer. He received Oscar nominations for his roles in “Chaplin” and “Tropic Thunder.” His film credits also include “Sherlock Holmes” and the “Iron Man” films.

Gibson to pay $750,000 in custody case Mel Gibson will pay $750,000 to his ex-girlfriend and continue to provide housing and financial support for their young daughter to resolve a bitter, long-running legal fight, a judge said Wednesday. The settlement is intended to end the bickering and accusations that have permeated the case handled in mostly secret proceedings for Mel more than a year, Superior Court Judge Peter Gibson Lichtman said. Gibson’s payments to Russian musician Oksana Grigorieva are dependent on a lasting truce. As part of the agreement, their daughter will receive support equal to what the actor-director provides his other seven children. The former couple will split custody of the girl, who turns 2 in late October. In addition, Gibson will keep paying for a multimillion house he purchased for Grigorieva and their daughter. The house will be sold when the girl turns 18 and she will receive the proceeds. As a result of the settlement, Grigorieva cannot pursue a civil case against the Oscar winner, and both sides were ordered not to speak or write about their relationship. Lichtman specifically said neither side could release any audio recordings, an apparent reference to a series of racist and sexist rants by Gibson that were leaked to the celebrity website RadarOnline.com. Grigorieva’s payments were divided into thirds, with the final payment occurring in 2016 if the agreement is not breached. Gibson spoke a handful of times during the hearing, mainly to acknowledge he understood terms of the settlement.

Cops seek impostor who claimed jackpot State police in northwestern Pennsylvania are searching for a jackpot impostor. Police said someone pretended to be another man when he collected the $750 daily jackpot at the Veterans of Foreign Wars club in Corry last week. Club officials discovered they had been duped on Monday when 67-year-old Malcolm Johnson came to the club to collect his winnings from Friday’s drawing. That’s when club officials told Johnson that another man using his name, address and Social Security number had come to the club last week and signed to collect the jackpot. Police said the real Johnson has gray hair, glasses and walks without assistance. The impostor has dark hair, no glasses and uses a cane.

Cher defends Chaz Bono on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cher is taking to Twitter to defend her son, Chaz Bono. The superstar posted several tweets Wednesday defending his participation on the upcoming season of “Dancing With the Stars.” Bono is the first transgender competitor on the hit ABC show. Cher says her son, who was born female and underwent surgery to become a man, is being “viciously attacked” on blogs and message boards since the new cast was announced Monday. “This is Still America right?

Bono, 42, is paired with pro dancer Lacey Schwimmer on the reality show, where celebrities and their professional partners perform various ballroom dances for judges’ scores and viewer votes. “Dancing” fans have posted both angry and supportive comments on the show’s message boards. One called the casting choice “disgusting” and said “ABC should be ashamed of theirselves for harassing mainstream Americans and Christians.”

TOMORROW’S HOROSCOPE

BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — A situation that has been a thorn in your side for far too long will be eliminated quite soon, perhaps even today. Your long-standing patience is what is producing these positive results. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If you want to be lucky, blend your intuition with a lot of practicality, reason and logic. Collectively they’ll provide some reliable insights into what you can effectively achieve. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It’s good to be generous in your dealings with others, because chances are they’ll be generous back. Just be sure your out-of-pocket expenses aren’t more excessive than they need to be. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Operate in terms of financial growth, and don’t think small. Anything you can do to generate personal gains is likely to work out quite handsomely, indeed. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t get upset if a significant matter starts off in a sluggish and uncertain manner. Lady Luck herself will be accelerating the pace for you in a most surprising way. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Although changes and shifts in conditions over which you’ll have no control may start your day off poorly, there is no need to get upset. You’ll like the way matters end up. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Your judgment is quite keen, so act in accordance with your assessments and evaluations. Don’t let negative thinkers cause you any discomforting thoughts. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Be consistently alert at all times if you want to capitalize on any mistakes your competition might make. No one is perfect, so it is probable that at one point it will happen right in front of you. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — When you think of life as a game, not only will it be fun, but you’ll want to win. You’ll realize that if you let life have the first serve, you’ll know its game plan and will be able to make better returns. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Put yourself in the other guy’s shoes, and mutual benefits can be derived through knowing better where they want to go and how you can help them get there faster. Cancer (June 21-July 22) —

B5

Deal with your assignments in toto as opposed to doing things in a piecemeal fashion, and you’ll take care of business with aplomb. It’s the big picture that counts. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — You’ll be luckiest staying within traditional methods and procedures instead of toying with speculative situations. Sticking with what you know the best will bring you the greatest returns.

Confused mom torn between ex, new lover Dear Abby: I am 19 and have a 10-month-old daughter. Her dad and I broke up five months ago because we were fighting a lot, most of it caused by him. I have been dating a new guy, “Ron,” for three months. Lately, my baby’s dad has been trying to convince me he has changed, and he wants me to take him back. I still have feelings for him, but I’m in love with Ron. I don’t want to lose what I have for a shot in the dark, but what

if my ex really HAS changed? Plus, the relationship I have with Ron is a long-distance one. As much as I’d love it to work, I don’t know how to deal with the distance. Do you have any advice on how

to make it less heartbreaking when we are apart? — Young Mom in Florida Dear Young Mom: If you were in love with your baby’s father, you wouldn’t have fallen in love with Ron so fast. If you were in love with Ron, you wouldn’t be debating whether to reunite with your argumentative ex because he’s geographically closer. The way adults deal with extended separations from the people they love is to

stay busy. They work, take classes, volunteer their extra time to causes they believe in. They do not bounce like tennis balls from romance to romance. And if they have a 10-month-old, they devote their attention to helping their little one go from a crawl to a walk.

Hiccups can be stopped by simply holding breath Dear Dr. Gott: I’ve read many “cures” for hiccups in your column. I remember my mother taught me to cure my younger siblings of hiccups when they were babies by touching the tip of the tongue with a little sugar. This would cause a sharp intake of breath, and that seemed to do the trick. Later I learned about scaring someone to stop the hiccups, then about drinking water while holding the ears, etc. All of these seem to have one thing in common — a deliberate interruption of the breathing pattern. So why all the drama? You don’t need sugar, water or a third person to intervene when using my preferred method. Simply take a deep breath and slowly count to 10 (one

TWEEN 12 & 20 BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION

Dr. Wallace: I’m 19 and have a 2-year-old daughter. We are living with a divorced 35-yearold man and his 15-year-old daughter. He has custody of the girl. His ex-wife is an alcoholic. His daughter has a lot of problems. She gets into trouble at school and refuses to obey her father. Last week his daughter got caught shoplifting and he didn’t discipline her because she threatened to go to her mother’s house. This man loves me, and I’m pretty sure that I love him. He wants us to get married. Do you think I should marry this man? His daughter and I rarely talk to each other. — Nameless, Orlando, Fla. Nameless: Marriage is out of the question. Dr. Wallace: I really have a crush on a certain guy. I’m 16, and he is 17. My 17-year-old sister (she’s popular, I’m not) told this guy that I liked him and asked him to call me for a date. He did, but he also let me know he was doing me a favor by asking me out. I told him I’d be glad to go out with him, but now that I’ve had a chance to think about it, I’m not so sure. What should I do, break the date or go out with him just to see what might develop? — Nameless, Hershey, Pa. Nameless: You don’t need pity or handouts. Call this guy, thank him for the date invitation, but tell him you’ve decided not to go out with him. If he wonders why, offer no explanation other than that you changed your mind. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service. E-mail him at rwallace@ Copley News Service.

one-thousand, and so on). If you hiccup during the counting, stop and start all over again. Most of the time, this works the first time I do it. If I hiccup during the count, I start over. I’ve never had to do it a third time. Dear Reader: Hiccups are caused by abnormal contractions of the diaphragm, the muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen. They are most commonly triggered by eating too much, sudden

temperature changes, emotional stress or excitement, drinking carbonated beverages or too much alcohol. In most instances hiccups are benign and disappear in a matter of minutes or an hour or two. Sometimes they can last for days. Hiccups that last more than 48 hours should be brought to the attention of a physician. They might be the result of nerve damage or irritation such as a sore throat, acid reflux, something touching the eardrum, a tumor, goiter or cyst in the neck. Another possibility is a central nervous system disorder such as meningitis, encephalitis, multiple sclerosis, stroke or a traumatic brain injury. Other triggers include a metabolic disorder or drug use, diabetes, kidney failure, an

electrolyte imbalance, anesthesia, the use of steroids, tranquilizers, barbiturates or alcoholism. There are many remedies for hiccups, but it wasn’t until you correctly pointed it out that I realized most remedies do involve some version of interrupted breathing. For that reason, I am passing along your letter. Other maneuvers such as stimulating the vagus nerve by drinking cold water, gargling with cold water, or irritating the diaphragm by pulling the knees to the chest while leaning forward have been found effective. Thank you for sharing your remedy.
