Harry Sharp, the former Florida cemetery operator who came to Vicksburg to operate an antebellum bed and breakfast inn, has bid to buy the troubled Green Acres cemetery, and he has the secretary of state’s backing. In a public sale Wednesday, Sharp, the state-appointed
receiver, bid $135,000 in cash plus 10 percent of the burial ground’s pretax profits, the highest of three Harry offers taken Sharp by Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann. It also includes about $51,000 for new roads and signs and
a 30 percent discount on memorials, opening charges and vaults. After a financial review, the bid will be recommended to Chancellor Vicki Roach Barnes for official transfer “as quickly as possible,” Hosemann said. Sharp was chosen by the state to run the 43-acre burial ground off U.S. 80 in March 2009, two months after the meredith spencer•The Vicksburg Post

SECOND OIL RIG BLAST IN GULF
Up in the sky...
By The Associated Press GRAND ISLE, La. — An offshore petroleum rig exploded and was burning this morning in the Gulf of Mexico about 80 miles south of Vermilion Bay. No one was killed in the explosion, the Coast Guard said. The blast was reported by a commercial helicopter flying over Fears take the site around 9 hold of a.m. All effort to 13 people remove aboard equipment the rig have been accounted for, with one injury. The extent of the injury was not known. Coast Guard Cmdr. Cheri Ben-Iesau said seven Coast Guard helicopters, two airplanes and three cutters were dispatched to the scene from New Orleans, Houston and Mobile, Ala. Authorities did not know whether oil is leaking from the site. The platform was in about 2,500 feet of water and owned by Mariner Energy of Houston, the Department of Homeland Security said. It was not producing oil and gas, the department said. A call to the company seeking comment was not returned this morning. Some of the workers from the rig were spotted in emergency flotation devices, Ben-Iesau said. Today’s blast occurred just west of the Deepwater Horizon rig that exploded April 20, killing 11 workers and leaking 206 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. The rig was owned by Transocean Ltd. and leased by BP.

The new Culkin water tower glows brightly off U.S. 80 in Bovina.
Culkin water tower brightens Bovina nights By Danny Barrett Jr. email@example.com At first, C.C. Hamby didn’t believe his wife and granddaughter about the bright ring of lights encircling the night sky above his house on U.S. 80. “She said, ‘Come out here and see this flying saucer’,” Hamby said of the night last week, when Autumn, 9, peered out the window and his wife, Susie, dashed outside to gaze at what at first glance easily could be mistaken as Bovina’s nightly “close encounter.” “Yeah, it looks like one’s flying right over the house,” Hamby said. No, it’s not little green men looking to beam the Hambys and others to their mother ship. The east Warren County community’s tallest structure, a water tower, is now its biggest night light. Installed by Jackson-based Neel-Schaffer, a string of a dozen 400-watt bulbs illuminates the newly built tower’s See Water Tower, Page A9.

Entergy could take Grand Gulf plea to NRC next week By Danny Barrett Jr. firstname.lastname@example.org Plans to make Grand Gulf Nuclear Station the nation’s single most powerful reactor could be presented as soon as next week to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Entergy spokesman Mara Hartmann said this morning. If approved by the NRC, the upgrade is scheduled for February 2012 during regular maintenance outages, pend-
ing federal approval. Entergy expects the expansion will take at least a few weeks, but has no definitive timetable. NRC is expected to take 11 months to review the data. Approval by federal nuclear regulators will increase output by 13 percent, from 1,265 megawatts to 1,443 megawatts, Entergy Mississippi officials have said. The Claiborne County plant will produce enough electricity to power an additional 53,000
homes around the clock for the life of the plant after the upgrade, officials said. The expected output is about 9 percent higher than the most productive reactor at Arizona’s Palo Verde plant, though that facility’s three reactors generate more electricity overall, at more than 4,000 megawatts. Average monthly usage per household typically is measured at about 1,000 kilowatts. Costs of the upgrade
would be dispersed among the facility’s joint owners, which include Entergy subsidiaries in Arkansas, Louisiana and New Orleans. For individual customers, bills will rise slightly the first year after the upgrade, then become savings by 2017, according to the state Public Utilities Staff. Precise costs from month to month depend on the price of natural gas, See Grand Gulf, Page A9.

Three men are sought in a shooting on May 18 that injured two Warren County men, and a fourth man has been released on bond. Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said arrest warrants were issued for three men believed to be in Port Gibson, Frederick Johnson, 25, Cable Kelly, 30, and Darren Johnson, 22, whose addresses were not available. Pace said the men might be suspects in recent burglaries. A fourth suspect, Kevin Cross, age and address unavailable, was arrested by deputies May 26 on an unrelated charge after he was stopped on U.S. 61 South because the car he was driving fit the description of the suspects’ getaway vehicle. A search of the car turned up an illegal drug, and Cross was charged with possession of a controlled substance.

2 Vicksburg men held for killing of Jackson man Two Vicksburg men are jailed in the slaying of a man in Jackson Friday night, and a third suspect was being sought and believed to be in Vicksburg, officials said. Jermaine Johnson, 32, 115 Oakland Drive, was already in the Warren County Jail Wednesday on an unrelated charge when Vicksburg police were notified he would be charged by Jackson police in the killing of Derrick Spires, 32. On the same day, the U.S. Marshals Service picked up Corey Lovelle Anderson, 24, 3655 Wisconsin Ave., in Fayette, Jackson police officer Colendula Green said. The men are accused of shooting Spires around 11:30 p.m. Friday in the 1000 block of Atley Drive in north Jackson, Green said. She said Spires was shot in the upper torso after he attempted to take a gun away from one of the two men being charged. Spires was taken to University Medical Center, where he died Saturday. Police gave no details of the argument that led to the shooting. Vicksburg police Lt. Bobby Stewart said Johnson had been jailed Tuesday on a charge of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, having been found guilty in 2008 of drug possession. His bond on the weapons charge was set at $30,000, but Johnson was expected to be turned over to Jackson police, Stewart said. Anderson was held without bond at the Hinds County Detention Center in Raymond. Green and Stewart declined to name the third suspect,

By Shelia Byrd The Associated Press OXFORD — Job cuts, retirements and scaledback programs are some of the steps Mississippi’s eight public universities are taking to deal with tight finances this school year and the next. It’s unclear how such measures might affect what’s being offered in classrooms. Mattie Tomes, a 19-yearold from Pascagoula, worries the budget situation could impact the dietetics and nutrition program in which she’s enrolled at the University of Mississippi. “We have to have food labs. In order to do that, we have to buy food. I hope no cuts will affect that,” Tomes said between classes Wednesday
on the Oxford campus. Earlier this week, faculty and staff at the University of Southern Mississippi received a letter about plans to lay off 29 faculty members next academic year, among other reductions. At Mississippi State University, 280 faculty and staff have signed up for a retirement incentive program that was implemented July 1. The action comes after months of planning by universities bracing for the loss of millions in stimulus funding in the budget year. Larry Sparks, vice chancellor for administration and finance at the University of Mississippi, said the institution started a comprehensive project years ago designed to streamline operations.

State Reform candidates Risks remain with Gulf well cap coming off taken off House ballot Oil spill
By Emily Wagster Pettus The Associated Press JACKSON — Four congressional candidates who’ve been running low-profile campaigns have until Tuesday to appeal their removal from Mississippi’s Nov. 2 general election ballot. The three-member state Board of Election Commissioners voted unanimously Wednesday to take the Reform Party candidates off the ballot because of a dispute about the state party’s leadership and questions about whether the party followed its own procedures in choosing the candidates. Republican Gov. Haley Barbour said it’s unfair to allow any party’s candidates on a ballot if officials can’t verify they were properly chosen. “Take them off. Send them notice we’ve taken them off,” Barbour told the other two election commissioners, Republican Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann and Democratic Attorney General Jim Hood. The candidates removed from the ballot are Barbara Dale Washer of Hattiesburg,
who filed to run in northern Mississippi’s 1st District; Ashley Norwood of Canton in the Delta’s 2nd District; Tracella Lou O’Hara Hill of Hattiesburg in the central 3rd District; and Anna Jewel Revies of Hattiesburg in the southern 4th District. They’ve been considered long-shot candidates, and it’s unclear whether their absence would affect the outcome of any of the races. Washer and Hill live outside the districts where they filed to run, but that’s allowed and their residency was not the reason they were taken off the ballot. Hosemann said the qualifying papers for the four candidates were submitted in late December by Thomas Randolph Huffmaster, who called himself chairman of the Reform Party of Mississippi. Hosemann, a Vicksburg native, said his office received a sworn statement Monday from the national Reform Party chairman, David Collison of Texas, that Huffmaster was not the Mississippi Reform Party chairman and didn’t have the authority to submit candidates’ names.

believe that you can find oysters with oil on them,” he said. Still, he said those areas that have been opened for oyster harvesting “have been checked extensively” and were clean. He urged people to use caution in eating oysters in areas that have been oiled. “There are locals who will harvest them recreationally,” he said. “It would be wise to look for signs of oil.”

the Atchafalaya Basinkeeper. Randy Pausina, an assistant secretary at the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, questioned the validity of Subra’s report. “Everything I have seen, everything has been clean,” he said. The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals says that since the April 20 Deepwater Horizon explosion the agency has found no oyster samples with high levels of oil contamination. The agency has been testing for the worst kinds of oil compounds known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which have been linked to cancer. However, in 85 of 116 oyster samples, DHH has detected only minute amounts of PAHs, the agency data shows. “We have not found anything at a level of concern,” said Olivia Watkins, a DHH spokeswoman. “What we have found is extremely low.” Louisiana has opened some waters to oyster harvesting, but much of the state’s coast remains closed to oystermen because of concerns over oil. John Tesvich, the chairman of the Louisiana Oyster Task Force, the industry’s main group, said he would not be surprised if some oysters along heavily oiled shores were contaminated. “I think it is reasonable to
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A trial for six current or former New Orleans police officers charged in deadly shootings on a bridge after Hurricane Katrina is scheduled to start next June.

Two people were killed and four others wounded by police on the Danziger Bridge
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Sampling by environmental groups has found oysters contaminated with oil along the Louisiana coast befouled by the BP PLC oil spill, a finding that casts doubt on statements by state and federal officials that all seafood tested here is safe to eat. Batches of oysters were sampled on Aug. 2 and 3 near the mouths of the Atchafalaya and Mississippi rivers and laboratory tests revealed the animals were tainted by oil, according to Wilma Subra, a well-known Louisiana chemist working for environmental groups. The oysters were obtained from a reef and an old crab trap, she said. She said oil was found in the animals even though there was no obvious sign of oil on them. She said the oil — which she believes comes from the BP oil spill — at the levels found in lab tests is very unusual. “We found oysters in the shell and they appeared to have accumulated the hydrocarbons,” Subra said. “I would think that these are indications that there is contamination in the oysters and additional sampling should be performed.” The sampling was backed by the Louisiana Environmental Action Network, the Lower Mississippi Riverkeeper and

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The image of thick crude gushing from a blown-out oil well a mile beneath the Gulf of Mexico was turned off when a tightly fitting cap was secured on top a month-anda-half ago. Engineers weren’t expecting that sight again today when they planned to delicately remove the cap as a prelude to raising the massive piece of equipment underneath that failed to prevent the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history. But the government wasn’t offering a guarantee no more oil would leak. Plans were being made for oil collection vessels to be on standby in case of a problem. With the cap and failed blowout preventer removed temporarily until another blowout preventer can be installed, a lot will be riding on the stability of a plug that was created when mud and cement were pumped down into the well from the top. Essentially, the pressure exerted downward served to counter the pressure coming up. But Rice University engineering professor George Hirasaki said there is still uncertainty about whether the cement settled everywhere it needed to in order to keep oil and gas from finding its way up. “Just because it didn’t flow when they tested it doesn’t mean the cement displaced all of the oil and gas,” Hirasaki said. That’s why many people have felt that finishing a relief well and pumping mud and cement in through the bottom would be the ultimate solution to the crisis, said Hirasaki, who was involved in the oil containment effort in the Bay Marchand field off Louisiana after a rig burned in the early 1970s. The government still plans on ordering BP PLC, the majority owner of the blown-out well in the Gulf, to do the so-called bottom kill operation. But it believes the wisest course is to put on a new blowout preventer first to deal with any pressure that is caused when the relief well intersects the blown-out well. Another potential risk: What happens if the crane attached to the blowout preventer accidentally drops the 50-foot, 300-ton device onto the wellhead? That might not, in and of itself, cause more oil to spew, as long as the plug held, but it would make it difficult to continue the operation, Hirasaki said. “It would crush everything,” he said. “It would be hard to place another blowout preventer on top of it. Right now the wellhead condition is in good. But if you dropped it, everything could be opened up.”

couldn’t or wouldn’t do their jobs and rating agencies that stamped every piece of paper Triple A. The culprit was greed all around — including in the halls of Congress. But there is no doubt that poor decision-making at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made things worse. These quasi-government agencies, under pressure from market forces, invested heavily in questionable mortgagebacked securities and did it with the implicit understanding that the government would make them whole if the bottom fell out. Which it did. Extricating the government won’t be easy. When other government agencies are considered, nine of every 10 new mortgages now are backed by Uncle Sam. But President Barack Obama can start down the road to a saner mortgage-finance system with a plan he is expected to unveil in
January. Fannie and Freddie should be phased out over time. But in their place, some sort of federal guarantee for home mortgages will be necessary for the market to work properly. A fully private market sounds good in theory, but it probably won’t work if Americans still embrace the idea of a low-cost, 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, as we suspect they do. Any government backing must be limited, though. We’re sympathetic to those who call for stronger government support for renters — many of whom are poor. Incentives for renters are meager compared with those in place for homeownership. But we remain a nation infatuated with a dream. With a revamped system, including adequate regulation, there is no reason dreams cannot continue to come true.

MODERATELY CONFUSED by Bill Stahler
Americans should not tolerate the intolerant “We are Americans, each with an equal right to worship and pray where we choose,” New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said recently. “There is nowhere in the five boroughs of New York City that is off limits to any religion.” Our founding documents guarantee that — and not just in the five boroughs. But the unprecedented furor over plans for a mosque complex at ground zero tells us there is a coalescing sense that Islam is more than a “mere” religion as non-Muslims conceive of “religion.” It is becoming clear to people, despite the gag of political correctness, that there’s a reason “Islam” means “submission.” Islam not only seeks to order the spiritual realm inhabited by a Muslim and Allah, it lays out a doctrine to control every believer’s behavior as well as the public life of the collective. Doctrinally, Islam is thus “doubly totalitarian,” in the words of G.H. Bousquet, a leading scholar of Islamic law, in accordance with the body of law known as Shariah. Under Shariah, freedom of conscience and freedom of speech
Under Shariah, freedom of conscience and freedom of speech are outlawed with extreme sanction, while non-Muslims and women exist as legal inferiors to the Muslim man.
are outlawed with extreme sanction, while non-Muslims and women exist as legal inferiors to the Muslim man. Meanwhile, jihad — holy war to extend Islamic rule — is a sacred command. And I have the books that prove it. In other words, this isn’t Islam because I say so, but because its sacred, authoritative, mainstream, non-hijacked, untwisted texts say so. It is the religious and political and legal ideology that inspired the al-Qaida killers on 9/11, and it is the religious and political and legal ideology that inspires the mosque complex at ground zero. And I didn’t come up with that, folks; I just hap-
pened to notice, and thought you should know. The crucial fact is, whether we are brutalized by acts of jihad or confused by acts of dawa (proselytizing), their goal is identical: more Islamic law. And this end will always justify the means as seen, for example, back in 2005 when hundreds of acclaimed Islamic clerics and heads of state gathered in Amman, Jordan. There, quite anti-climactically, they issued the “Amman Message” that declares that no Muslim who adheres to a recognized school of Islam may be labeled an apostate. Subtext: Not even Osama bin Laden could be, in effect, ex-communicated
or otherwise blackballed or removed from good standing by these Islamic authorities. One of the 552 signatories was Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. Bloomberg types are blind to these things, from the Shariah-spreading efforts of Rauf (noted here last week), to dictates of Shariah that subvert constitutional liberties. So, blindly, they sound platitudes in Islam’s defense, plucking emotional chords that resonate with Americans about “liberty,” “tolerance” and “religious freedom” on behalf of a belief system that, ultra-ironically, outlaws them all. Bloomberg actually suggested that a failure to erect the mosque complex would “undermine our soldiers,” “our foreign policy objectives” — even “our national security.” “Just as we fought communism by showing the world the power of free markets and free elections,” said Bloomberg, “so must we fight terrorism by showing the world the power of religious freedom and cultural tolerance.” It almost sounds wonderful — until the froth dries and you remember that fighting tyranny is never as
easy as show-and-tell. This is something that victims of the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc, for example, could explain to the mayor. Freedom and tolerance, regardless of how well they are exemplified, don’t have a chance against tyranny and terrorism if they aren’t vigilantly protected. Indeed, tolerance is doomed if it is extended to the intolerant, something philosopher Karl Popper worked out in the last century. “Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed and tolerance with them. ... We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant.” For the sake of the World Trade Center that’s a duty. •

smart money Q: Please tell me whether it is OK for me to personally make a change to my will (actually, resending an earlier change made by an attorney), and then have it notaBRUCE rized. Also, will it be binding upon my death? — M.T., via e-mail A: Never monkey around with a will. If you make any
type of a change, notarized or otherwise, you’ll very likely invalidate the entire document. If you wish to make a change to the will, see the attorney who drew the will, or, if he is no longer in the picture, find another attorney. It might be easier just to redraft the entire document. That is up to the attorney, but never write in the margins or try to add a codicil of your own. Unhappily, the only time that problem will develop is well after it can be fixed. •

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told a panel investigating the financial crisis that regulators must be ready to shutter the largest institutions if they threaten to bring down the financial system. “If the crisis has a single lesson, it is that the too-big-tofail problem must be solved,” Bernanke said today while testifying before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission. Bernanke is presenting his analysis of the crisis and views on potential systemwide risks as the panel approaches the end of its yearlong investigation into the Wall Street meltdown. The Fed chief said bailing out these institutions is not a healthy solution and that great improvement will come from the new financial over-
‘We should not imagine ... that it is possible to prevent all crises. To achieve both sustained growth and stability, we need to provide a framework which promotes the appropriate mix of prudence, risk-taking and innovation in our financial system.’ Ben Bernanke
Federal Reserve chairman haul law. It empowers regulators to shut down firms whose collapse pose a broader threat to the system. “Too-big-to-fail financial institutions were both a source ... of the crisis and among the primary impediments to policymakers’ efforts to contain it,” Bernanke told the bipartisan panel.
“We should not imagine ... that it is possible to prevent all crises,” he said. “To achieve both sustained growth and stability, we need to provide a framework which promotes the appropriate mix of prudence, risk-taking and innovation in our financial system.” Bernanke led the economy through the financial crisis
and the worst recession since the 1930s. The Federal Reserve took extraordinary measures to inject hundreds of billions into the battered financial system. Last week he said the central bank is prepared to make a major new investment in government debt or mortgage securities if the economy worsened significantly. Sheila Bair, the chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., also is testifying at today’s hearing. She says in prepared testimony “the stakes are high” for regulators to effectively exercise their new powers under the financial overhaul law. If not, “we will have forfeited this historic chance to put our financial system on a sounder and safer path in the future,” she said.
Ex-Lehman CEO: Regulators refused to save firm WASHINGTON (AP) — The former chief of Lehman Brothers told a panel investigating the financial crisis that the Wall Street firm could have been rescued, but regulators refused to help — even though they later bailed out other big banks. Richard S. Fuld Jr. told the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission at a hearing that Lehman did everything it could to limit its risks and save itself in the fall of 2008. “Lehman’s demise was caused by uncontrollable market forces, and the incorrect perception and accompanying rumors that Lehman did not have sufficient capital to support its investments,”
Fuld testified. Fuld accepted responsibility for mistakes made that saddled Lehman with some $60 billion in bad investments. But he said Lehman proposed measures to federal regulators that could have saved the firm, and “each of those requests was denied.” Other financial firms later received the government assistance that Lehman was denied, Fuld said. Lehman was “mandated” by regulators to file for bankruptcy on Sept. 15, 2008 — the only firm ordered to do so, he said. “Lehman was forced into bankruptcy not because it neglected to act responsibly
or seek solutions to the crisis, but because of a decision, based on flawed information, not to provide Lehman with the support given to each of its competitors,” said Fuld. But Thomas Baxter, general counsel of the New York Federal Reserve, insisted that the Fed lacked the legal authority to provide a government guarantee of Lehman’s obligations to its trading partners or other aid the firm sought. Hundreds of billions worth of collateral would have been needed to secure a guarantee of that magnitude, he said. “Lehman didn’t have it,” Baxter told the panel. Pa n e l c h a i r m a n P h i l Angelides said there appeared
to be “a conscious policy decision” by the Fed not to rescue Lehman. Lehman’s bankruptcy was the biggest in U.S. history and triggered a panic in financial markets. Through hours of testimony Wednesday, Fuld repeated that Lehman had reduced its risks and held adequate capital. But it fell victim to a classic run on the bank. After the subprime mortgage bubble burst in 2007, complex investments called credit default swaps — which insured against default of securities tied to the mortgages — collapsed. That helped bring the downfall of Lehman.
Mortgage rates hit Stocks see fluctuation decades-low of 4.32% after jobs, housing data WASHINGTON — Mortgage rates fell to the lowest level in decades for the tenth time in 11 weeks, as investors worried about the economy. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac says the average rate for a 30-year fixed loan was 4.32 percent this week, down from 4.36 percent last week. That’s the lowest since Freddie Mac began tracking rates in 1971. The average rate on 15-year fixed loan dropped to 3.83 percent from 3.86 percent the previous week. That’s the lowest on records starting in 1991.
Kia recalling Soul, Sorentos for wiring fix WASHINGTON — Kia Motors is recalling about 35,000 Soul and Sorento vehicles to fix wiring in the interior lighting panels that could lead to fires. The recall affects about 24,000 Kia Soul compact wagons from the 2010 model year and more than 11,000 Kia Sorento sedans from the 2011 model year. Kia told the government that some wiring harnesses in the Soul’s front door trim panels and the Sorento’s front and rear door trim panels may have been improperly soldered.

New YOU! & Energized AGetWhole YOUR Body Ready for Fall!
NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks fluctuated in a tight range today after reports on housing, manufacturing and jobs indicated the economy continues to grow, albeit slowly. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 3 points in morning trading. Broader indexes rose. The Labor Department said first-time claims for unemployment benefits fell slightly last week, but remain well above levels that are considered a sign of a healthy economy. Claims dipped for the second straight week. They fell slightly below the level economists had forecast, which was somewhat encouraging ahead of the monthly employment report due out Friday. In morning trading, the Dow fell 3.03, or less than 0.1 percent, to 10,266.14. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 2.60, or 0.2 percent, to 1,082.89, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 5.70, or 0.3 percent, to 2,182.54. The number of buyers who
signed contracts to purchase homes rose 5.2 percent in July after hitting a record low in June, according to the National Association of Realtors. Sales plummeted in the months following the expiration of the government’s home buyer tax credit in April and economists were expecting that trend to continue for a third straight month. Factory orders also climbed, rising 0.1 percent in July. The rise in orders backs up Wednesday’s data that showed the manufacturing sector continues to expand. Major indexes jumped more than 2 percent Wednesday after a surprising rise in manufacturing activity. Today’s moves were muted though because the government’s monthly report on employment will be released Friday. Traders often limit big moves before the jobs data because it is considered so vital to determining the health of the economy.

Journal editors question sale of diet pill Meridia
The associated press
New TB test seen as diagnosing advance By The Associated Press Scientists are reporting a major advance in diagnosing tuberculosis: A new test can reveal in less than two hours, with very high accuracy, whether someone has the disease and if it’s resistant to the main drug for treating it. The test could revolutionize TB care and replace the 125-year-old process used now, which is slow and misses more than half of all cases, experts say. A better test would be a powerful tool to curb TB in poor countries, where most people spread the lung disease before they are diagnosed and treated, and many don’t return for follow-up doctor visits to get test results. In the United States, it could be a big help in inner city clinics, where diagnosing a drugresistant strain on someone’s first visit enables proper treatment right away. “You can tell the patient before they leave the office if they have TB and if it’s drugresistant. It’s transformational,” said Dr. Peter Small, head of TB programs at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which helped fund the work, along with the U.S. government. The World Health Organization will meet with experts over the next few days to review results and plan steps forward, says a statement from one of its TB experts, Dr. Mario Raviglione. “These results suggest that it has the potential to revolutionize TB care, and WHO will treat it as a top priority,” the statement says. A study of the test was pub-
lished online Wednesday by the New England Journal of Medicine. TB kills about 1.8 million people a year and increasingly is caused by bacteria that are resistant to one or more drugs.The best test — growing the bacteria in a lab dish from a mucus sample — takes a week or more, so the most common approach is to look for bacteria in a sample under a microscope. That misses many cases, tells nothing about drug resistance, and doesn’t usually give an answer before a patient leaves the clinic. “It’s antiquated,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “If you have 50 patients in a clinic and one person looking at a microscope it could take hours and hours.” The government set out to develop a better test with a host of partners: Cepheid, a California-based diagnostics company; the University of Medicine and Dentistry in New Jersey, and the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics, a Swiss-based nonprofit group supported by the Gates Foundation. The test they devised is simple enough to be done with minimal training. It requires only 15 minutes of manual labor, for taking the mucus sample, mixing it with chemicals and putting it in an inkjetlike cartridge that goes into a machine. The machine amplifies the DNA in the sample and checks for bits of bacterial genes. The whole process takes less than two hours.
NEW YORK (AP) — Editors of a top medical journal call Meridia “another flawed diet pill” and question whether it should stay on the market as a study shows it raises the risk of heart attack and stroke in people with heart problems. The strongly worded editorial comes two weeks before government advisers review the prescription drug, which has already been pulled in Europe. In January, U.S. drug regulators strengthened existing warnings that the appetite suppressant should not be used by those with a history of heart trouble. In today’s issue, the editors of the New England Journal of Medicine noted that the latest study showed weight loss with Meridia was minimal, it didn’t improve cardiovascular health, and those with heart disease fared worse. “It is difficult to discern a credible rationale for keeping this medication on the market,” they wrote. The editorial — with a headline calling the drug “another flawed diet pill” — was published along with the findings of the study conducted in Europe, Latin America and Australia. The research involved about 10,700 overweight or obese people 55 or older who had heart disease, diabetes or both and were treated for about 3 1/2 years. Overall, 11.4 percent of those on the diet pill had a heart attack, stroke or died of a heart-related cause, compared to 10 percent of those taking a dummy pill. The difference was mostly in heart attack and stroke; there was no difference in deaths between the groups. A person taking Meridia had a 1-in-70 chance of suffering a heart attack or stroke, or a 1-in-52 chance if they had preexisting heart problems, the editors wrote. There was no increased risk in the group with diabetes but no heart problems, the researchers found. Meridia also led to only modest weight loss: about 10 pounds over 12 months for someone weighing an average of 211 pounds. The research, requested by European drug regulators, was funded by Meridia maker
The research involved about 10,700 overweight or obese people 55 or older who had heart disease, diabetes or both and were treated for about 3 1/2 years. Overall, 11.4 percent of those on the diet pill had a heart attack, stroke or died of a heart-related cause, compared to 10 percent of those taking a dummy pill. The difference was mostly in heart attack and stroke; there was no difference in deaths between the groups. Abbott Laboratories, and company employees were among the researchers. After getting preliminary results, the European Medicines Agency recommended in January that the diet pill no longer be sold in Europe and Abbot suspended sales. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration sought the stronger label warnings.
Abbott spokesman Scott Davies said the appropriate candidate for Meridia is someone who’s obese with no history of heart disease who can’t lose weight with diet and exercise. He noted that most of the study’s participants wouldn’t be eligible to take it under its current label. “We believe this is an important option for patients and
physicians to treat a serious condition for which there are few treatments currently available,” he said. Meridia was approved in the U.S. in 1997 — the same year the popular fen-phen drug combo was linked to heart valve problems and pulled from the market. Meridia use in the U.S. has been steadily declining in recent years, according to prescription data firm IMS Health. About 283,000 prescriptions for it were filled last year, just over half the number of prescriptions in 2005. Davies said Abbot doesn’t actively promote Meridia in the U.S. and he termed sales modest. The company expects global sales this year to be less than $100 million, including less than $30 milllion in the U.S., he said.

Feds sue Arizona Sheriff Arpaio in civil rights probe PHOENIX (AP) — The U.S. Justice Department sued Sheriff Joe Arpaio today, saying the Arizona lawman refused for more than a year to turn over records in an investigation into allegations
his department discriminates against Hispanics. The lawsuit calls Arpaio and his office’s defiance “unprecedented,” and said the federal government has been trying since March 2009 to get offi-
cials to comply with its probe of alleged discrimination, unconstitutional searches and seizures, and having Englishonly policies in his jails that discriminates against people with limited English skills.
Arpaio had been given until Aug. 17 to hand over documents it first asked for 15 months ago. Arpaio’s office had said it has fully cooperated in the jail inquiry but won’t hand over
additional documents into the examination of the alleged unconstitutional searches because federal authorities haven’t said exactly what they were investigating.

300,000-gallon tank with an eerie, yet energy-efficient glow. The metal halide lights feature pulse-starting ballast, friendlier to the environment than traditional light bulbs, said John W. Gahring of Neel-Schaffer, the engineering firm for the Culkin Water District, which serves most of northeast Warren County. Metal halide lamps produce light by the breakdown of a mix of gases, including argon, mercury and various
chemical salts in metal form. No matter how much energy is used by each lamp to produce light — about 24 percent, making it more efficient than fluorescent and incandescent lamps — it’s the specter of a flying disc coming over the trees that’s been the conversation piece in the Hamby house. “It’s been quite the topic,” said Susie Hamby. Erected this spring, the new tank replaced a silvery, weatherbeaten tank
that dated to the old Bovina Water Club that preceded Culkin’s service to the area by decades. The new tank was financed by a $3.2 million portion of the Drinking Water Systems Improvement Revolving Loan Fund, administered by the Mississippi Department of Health. Improvements to the independent water district’s system planned beyond 2010 involve an additional well, a systemwide pipe upgrade and a new office building.
which is the source for about 60 percent of Entergy’s power. About 1,000 to 1,500 temporary jobs in construction, engineering and technical areas will be added as a result of the upgrade, company officials have said. Hotel bookings in Vicksburg spiked more than 10 percent during the spring due to contract workers employed on the project. Grand Gulf was started up in 1985 after an 11-year con-
struction period and uses a controlled nuclear reaction to generate heat to boil water. The resulting steam is piped under pressure to a turbine, which spins to generate electricity that goes onto a grid with power from other plants. The upgrade intensifies the process — more steam through a faster, more efficient generator.
Sharp’s bid on the cemetery was picked over smaller bids from Magee-based Tutor Funeral Home, which bid successfully on Sunset Gardens Memorial Park in Laurel following a similar public sale in August, and from Vicksburgbased Skyhawk LLC, owned by Reliable Motors managers Bill Garmon and Darin Lambert. When reached, both men said their interest in the cemetery was sparked by money lost on grave markers once Green Acres’ financial mess came to light. Garmon’s wife’s grandmother is buried there, as is both sets of Lambert’s grandparents. “Harry Sharp’s been here a long time,” Garmon said. “I think he can do the job.” Only $221.60 was in the pre-need account when Hosemann filed civil suit in January 2009 against Houston-based Mike Graham & Associates LLC, owner of the cemetery since 2001. Mike Graham died in 2007 and had apparently left daily
operations of Green Acres and other cemeteries to his wife, Linda, and daughter, Stephanie, neither of whom responded to the state’s questions in person during the 19 months leading up to the court-ordered auction. One of Green Acres’ bank accounts in Mississippi was used as a clearing account to send money to the company’s other holdings, according to testimony given by the state. Specifics of the bid call for about $37,000 of the $135,000 pledged on the cemetery to go to the state Tax Commission to settle back taxes for liens against the property. After expenses, the remaining portion will go to the perpetual care trust, as will more than $550,000 in insurance policies that belonged to Graham’s wife and daughter. Laws enacted in 2009 created a “loss guarantee fund” into which $10 is deposited from every pre-need funeral contract sold in the state so any future pre-need contracts deemed worthless can be
covered. It is managed by a five-person advisory board to which Sharp was appointed by Hosemann last December. Hosemann said statewide auditing of perpetual care funds has begun and 89 have filed necessary paperwork. Seven other cemeteries in Mississippi were the subject of separate civil actions filed in 2009 by the Secretary of State’s Office, with Green Acres the most serious in terms of the total of missing money. Bids on four of those were recommended for title transfer. Besides Sunset, they included bids of $1 each on Liberty Memorial Park in Booneville, by Liberty United Methodist Church, and Pinecrest Memorial Park in Pittsboro, by nonprofit Pinecrest of Calhoun County, and a $12,500 bid plus other considerations on Prentiss Memorial Gardens in Baldwyn by Waters Funeral Home. Tutor’s winning bid on Sunset was for $20,100 in cash.

A central office, formerly housed in a trailer that was repossessed three months before the inquiry officially started, will be re-established if a downtown building he owns at 1302 Washington St., next to Duff’s Tavern and Grille, can be retrofitted, he said. In his pitch to the state during the bid process, Sharp proposed building standing monuments and a community mausoleum to complement flat, bronze markers — the latter of which he said he planned jointly more than 20 years ago with former owner Joe Varner but never realized. “I’m very excited to be able to do things we weren’t able to do under the receivership,” Sharp said.

Green Acres state filed suit against the cemetery’s Houston-based former owners, Mike Graham & Associates LLC, to track down more than $373,000 missing from its pre-need trust account that was supposed to hold funds paid for markers, vaults and other merchandise. It forced those who had held plots for years to pay for the items all over again. The inquiry involved the Attorney General’s Civil Litigation Division, but came up short of finding the missing money and no charges were filed against the former owners. The state tapped Sharp for the job due to his cemetery management experience in Florida before he purchased Duff Green Mansion and moved to Vicksburg in 1985. “Our agency knew from the beginning of this mess, we could not make Green Acres whole,” Hosemann said in part of a statement. “Mr. Sharp’s generous bid on the property will no doubt provide some relief and stability

East Coast eyes Earl as it nears outer N.C. BUXTON, N.C. (AP) — Hurricane Earl packed winds near 140 mph as it blew toward North Carolina today, putting the Eastern Seaboard up to Maine on alert for a Labor Day weekend pounding by waves, gales and rain. A hurricane warning for the tip of Massachusetts, including Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, joined earlier warnings and watches for hurricanes or tropical storms that stretch from North Carolina up to near the Canadian border. Earl was a dangerous category 4 storm with no significant change in strength forecast before it comes close to the Outer Banks late today, then turns north in rough parallel to the coast, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said. The center’s director, Bill Read, said the eye of the storm will likely remain about 30 to 75 miles east of the Outer Banks. At the closest point of approach, the western edge of the eye wall could impact Cape Hatteras, with huge waves, beach erosion and maybe some property damage from the waves. “They’re going to have a full impact of a major hurricane,” Read said. “Maybe not the strongest winds but a large area of tropical storm force and probably gusts to hurricane force along the islands.” There will be a similar close point of approach for the eastern tip of Long Island, Rhode Island, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket. “They’ll be facing a similar scenario that North Carolina is facing today,” Read said. “And it will be bigger. The storm won’t be as strong but they spread out as they go north and the rain will be spreading from New England.” That will mean strong, gusty winds much like a Northeastern, and because leaves are still on the trees, there could be fallen trees or limbs and downed power lines. “This is the strongest hurricane to threaten the northeast and New England since Hurricane Bob in 1991,” said Dennis Feltgen, a meteorologist and spokesman for the National Hurricane Center. “They don’t get storms this powerful very often.” Tourists were largely gone from North Carolina’s Outer Banks, but residents who stayed behind said they were prepared to face down the powerful hurricane.

Suspected gunman dies in Discovery standoff Man said he didn’t like programming SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — A gunman police shot to death after he took hostages a t D i s c ov ery Channel’s headquarters said he hated the company’s shows such as “Kate Plus 8” because they promote James J. population Lee growth and its environmental programming because it did little to save the planet. Three hostages — two Discovery Communications employees and a security guard — escaped unhurt after the four-hour standoff Wednesday in Silver Spring, just outside the nation’s capital. After several hours negotiating with the gunman, tac-

saw him pull out a handgun and point it at a hostage, said Montgomery County Police
Chief Thomas Manger. A law enforcement official speaking on condition of ano-
nymity because the investigation was ongoing said authorities had identified James J. Lee as the suspect, but police had not released the gunman’s identity. It wasn’t the first time Lee, a homeless former Californian, had targeted Discovery’s headquarters. In February 2008, he was charged with disorderly conduct for staging a “Save the Planet Protest.” In court and online, he had demanded an end to Discovery Communications LLC’s shows such as TLC’s “Kate Plus 8” and “19 Kids and Counting.” Instead, he said, the network should air “programs encouraging human sterilization and infertility.” “Humans are the most destructive, filthy, pollutive creatures around and are wrecking what’s left of the planet with their false morals and breeding cultures,” Lee, 43, wrote in a bitter manifesto on his website.
Number of illegal immigrants on decline, study finds WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. has dropped for the first time in two decades — decreasing by 8 percent since 2007, a new study finds. The reasons range from the sour economy to Mexican violence and increased U.S. enforcement that has made
it harder to sneak across the border. Much of the decline comes from a sharp drop-off in illegal immigrants from the Caribbean, Central America and South America attempting to cross the southern border of the U.S., according to the Pew Hispanic Center, which based
its report on an analysis of 2009 census data. The findings come amid bitter debate over Arizona’s strict new immigration law, which was passed earlier this year but is on hold for now as it is challenged in federal court. The Obama administration
contends the state law usurps federal authority and promotes racial profiling, while Arizona leaders say states are justified to step in if federal enforcement falls substantially short. The study released Wednesday estimates that 11.1 million illegal immigrants lived in the
U.S. in 2009. That represents a decrease of roughly 1 million, or 8 percent, from a peak of 12 million in 2007. The study puts the number of illegal immigrants down to about where it was in 2005. Th ey st i l l m a ke u p roughly 4 percent of the U.S. population.

Afghan clashes kill 2 from U.S. KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Two American troops died in fighting in Afghanistan today, while NATO and local officials said coalition and Afghan forces killed at least 37 insurgents in a series of ground and air engagements. U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, meanwhile, arrived in Afghanistan’s capital for meetings with President Hamid Karzai and top NATO commander Gen. David Petraeus. Gates flew this morning to Kabul from Baghdad, where he participated in ceremonies marking the formal close of the U.S. combat mission in Iraq. The Pentagon chief also plans to visit U.S. troops in Afghanistan. NATO said one U.S. service member was killed in the country’s east and the other in the south — regions where fighting between the coalition and Taliban insurgents has been at its most intense. No other details were given in keeping with standard NATO procedure.

Roethlisberger to meet with Goodell
NEW YORK (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger’s six-game suspension likely will be shortened to four games by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell after the two meet in New York on Friday. Goodell has said he will make his decision after the preseason concludes. The Steelers play Carolina tonight. Although the NFL has not confirmed the exact location or time for the meeting, Roethlisberger is expected to meet Goodell at league headquarters. Roethlisberger was suspended in April under the league’s personal conduct policy and the quarterback is not eligible to return until Oct. 31 vs. New Orleans.

Marshall gives Eagles a boost at wideout By Steve Wilson email@example.com The medium of a grainy camcorder did the moment little justice. It was the moment when Porters Chapel wide receiver/defensive back Chris Marshall had truly arrived. The Eagles had cut the Prairie View four-quarter, 12-point deficit to 12-7 and were driving. But time was a factor. Montana McDaniel had two big runs to put the Eagles in business in the red zone, but a fumbled snap drove them back and now they were down to fourth down. One more shot. Tick. Tick. Tick. Quarterback Jonah Masterson took the snap and scanned the end zone. 14... He could see Marshall bracketed by two defenders, but there was a crease. Just enough space. 13...12... Masterson saw a defender scudding toward him and he fired the pass before absorbing a vicious shot. 11...10... Marshall reached upward for the pigskin, wrested it into his arms, dragged his toes inbounds and the raised hands of the side judge crowned the achievement with just nine seconds remaining. “I had to locate it,” Marshall said. “I knew my landmarks, got to my landmark, looked up and I put my hands up. Once I came down with it, I feel like I cemented my place in school history.” For good measure, he intercepted Prairie View’s final desperation heave on the next possession as the clock died. It was the final brushstroke on an eightcatch, 140-yard masterpiece in a 14-12 victory. Rather than celebrate the moment with a lookat-me display, Marshall was overcome with emotion and tears of joy as he was congratulated by his teammates. It was one moment, but it will be the first of many for the well-traveled Marshall, who was born in Hawaii and lived in LaPlace, La., before spending last year in Houston. He caught three passes for

He’s one of those who doesn’t care who gets the credit, but just as long as we won that football game.” Even though he hasn’t been here long, he’s found a home in the PCA locker

HATTIESBURG — Former Warren Central safety Chico Hunter’s final season in black and gold starts tonight. Southern Miss takes on SEC foe South Carolina at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia and Hunter and the Golden Eagles will get another chance to take down a BCS-conference foe. Hunter will be playing a big role on the defense, both at his natural position of safety and covering slot receivers in the dime and nickel packages in a spread offense-heavy Conference USA. “I feel great,” Hunter said. “I’m ready for the season. As long as I’m getting on the field, I’m OK.” Last season in 13 games, playing as a nickel back and backup safety, Hunter had 44 stops, one interception and one forced fumble. USM’s pass defense has been under scrutiny in the past two seasons. Last year, the Golden Eagles gave up 25.8 points per contest. While stout against the run, allowing only 3.6 yards per carry, the Golden Eagles struggled against the pass. See Chico, Page B3.
Victory over South Carolina could give USM a big surge Another primetime, nonconference showdown with a BCS conference foe looms for Southern Miss. Will it be a letdown? Or will it be an early testament to the talent coach Larry Fedora has accumulated at Southern Miss and the possibility of a Conference USA title and more? Tonight at 6:30 presents an opportunity for the Golden Eagles to show their mettle against a South Carolina club that will be contending for the SEC Eastern Division title. Two seasons in a row, the Golden Eagles ended up in the New Orleans Bowl. Considering the hype that surrounded Fedora when he took over the USM job, the results haven’t measured up with two 7-6 seasons. “I’ve felt pressure since the
POST SPORTS EDITOR
day I took the job, but it’s not outside pressure I felt,” Fedora said. “It’s not from fans. That pressure comes from my house, from me. That’s just the way I am. I don’t know of anyone who’s going to put any more more pressure on me than myself.” While his marvelous spread offense has put up extraordinary numbers, the defense has been more of a yield rather than a stop sign. Last season, the ‘D’ gave up
more than 25 points per contest and yielded 261 yards per game through the air. That’s got to improve. The Golden Eagles will have the best linebacking corps and the deepest defensive line, but the secondary will be relatively untested, a recipe for disaster in C-USA, where the spread offense is more prevalent than hippies at a Grateful Dead concert. The offense, despite missing leading rusher Damion Fletcher and most of last year’s wide receiving corps, could be more explosive than last season’s with a healthy Austin Davis running the show at quarterback and wideout DeAndre Brown back to 100 percent. They’ll face a South Carolina team with another excellent defense, but with an offense quarterbacked by
Stephen Garcia that hasn’t exactly hit its stride. The days of the “Fun and Gun” are long over for South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier. The once-ebulliently confident Spurrier is talking like this season may be his last. Just don’t tell Fedora that. “We understand that South Carolina has one of their best teams they’ve had in years,” Fedora said. “We also understand what Coach Spurrier and his staff are capable of doing. But our guys are going to go out there and expect to win, just like they do every game.” Fedora, during media day in July, was very careful to point out he didn’t want to trade barbs with the infamously acerbic Spurrier, especially playing the Gamecocks in primetime. “I’ve got to be careful what
I say,” Fedora said with a laugh. “Seriously, there is a lot of excitement in our football players. There are about 78 million college football fans and it is exciting to know that everyone will be itching to watch a college football game. Our guys are excited about the opportunity to go out and compete against South Carolina.” When the notes of “Thus Spake Zarathusa” (the “2001, a Space Odyssey” theme) fade out and the Gamecocks take the field, it’ll be an opportunity to start this season with a huge victory. Will the Golden Eagles take advantage? •

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Big Ten announces divisional breakdown The Big Ten announced its divisional breakdown for football, and Ohio State and Michigan will be in different six-team divisions when the league expands to 12 members in 2011. Neither division has been named, but they break down like this: Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan State, Minnesota and Northwestern in one; Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin, Illinois, Purdue and Indiana in the other. Michigan and Ohio State will be a cross-divisional rivalry and continue to play each other each year in the Big Ten regular-season finale, as they have since 1943. That means they could wind up meeting again for the conference championship a week or two later. The first Big Ten football championship game will be played in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium, the indoor home of the NFL’s Colts.

The Vicksburg Post
Tallulah looking for its first victory Marshall Continued from Page B1.
By Ernest Bowker firstname.lastname@example.org Tallulah Academy has struggled mightily on offense early this season, getting shut out by Porters Chapel and St. Aloysius in back-toback games. The drought prompted first-year coach Nick Evans to plan a lighthearted celebration for the team’s first touchdown. “I told them if we score a touchdown, we’re going to pull a Mark Richt and have everybody go to the end zone,” Evans said, referring to the University of Georgia’s infamous touchdown celebration in its 2007 game against Florida, when every member of the team ran to the goal line to celebrate. All kidding aside, Evans and the Trojans are clearly searching for answers heading into Friday’s game against Glenbrook (1-1). Their spread offense has produced no points and 261 yards in the first two games, and quarterback Hunter Windham is 9-of-31 passing for 101 yards. Forty-three of those yards came on one play late in the loss to PCA. Things took another bad turn when half the team missed the first practice of the week because of illness. “I had about 10 guys out (Monday) with sickness,” Evans said. “We’ve got to get back to basics and protect the football.”
Clinton Christian at Sharkey-Issaquena Something has to give tonight when Clinton Christian heads to Rolling Fork to face Sharkey-Issaquena. SIA hasn’t won in nine games, since a 50-7 win over Clinton Christian 364 days ago, and hasn’t scored a point in its last six games dating to last season. Clinton Christian has lost 9 of 11 games over the past two years, with the only wins coming against Park Place Christian — a first-year varsity team that played a limited three-game schedule. The touchdown against SIA was the only one Clinton Christian has scored in its nine losses.
Central Hinds at Lamar Central Hinds (2-0) plays the first of four consecutive tough games when it hits the road to face Lamar (1-1). Two of CHA’s next three opponents, Lamar and Brookhaven Academy, played for the Class AA championship last season. Another, Bowling Green, reached the second round of the playoffs and the fourth, Copiah Academy, is a tough Class AAA squad.

St. Aloysius defensive lineman Tyler Cranfield pressures Tallulah Academy quarterback Hunter Windham (6) last week. St. Al won 30-0.
prep football 8-man football Briarfield at Delta Briarfield (1-1) dropped its first game of the season last week, 26-20 to Hot Springs (Ark.) Christian, but will have a chance to regoup Friday night when it takes on winless Delta Academy. Delta has been outscored 64-6 in its first two games. Quarterback Fuad Ahmed threw for 154 yards against Hot Springs, and playing a solid team should help prepare Briarfield for tougher games down the road, Briarfield coach Ben Durham said. “We feel good about it,” Durham said of the Rebels’ early-season effort. “Plus, there were enough tough games to get us ready. The Hot Springs game helps us if we’re fortunate to play a playoff game, and it didn’t cost us anything. It’s not a district game, not a league game.” Playing another non-district game at Delta, located just west of Batesville in Marks, poses another challenge even if the Raiders are struggling, Durham added. “It’s a long road trip and the temperature is supposed to be back in the mid-90s. This is a chance to try some
things and develop some depth,” Durham said.
MHSAA Crystal Springs at Hinds AHS Before it starts play in a tough Class 2A region, Hinds AHS has to survive a perilous trek through the 4A ranks. The War Dawgs face Crystal Springs on Friday, their second of four consecutive Class 4A opponents to start the season. Port Gibson thumped Hinds AHS 49-12 in last Friday’s season-opener. Crystal Springs enters the game with an 0-2 record, but its deeper talent pool provides an advantage against a rebuilding Hinds squad. Coach Michael Fields was hoping for some success soon, before the toll of playing larger schools adds up. “It’s not good when you’ve got an inexperienced bunch,” Fields said. “Sometimes you play those schools and they can get used to losing. And then losing becomes contagious.”
Jefferson County at Port Gibson Port Gibson hosts Jefferson County in the renewal of their Southwestern Mississippi rivalry.
Port Gibson improved to 2-0 with its win over Hinds AHS last Friday, using a high-powered aerial attack to shred the War Dawgs’ secondary. Jodarius Grigsby threw three touchdown passes for Port Gibson, including two to Adarius Barnes.
North Panola at South Delta South Delta (1-1) will try to rebound from its first loss of the season when it hosts North Panola (0-2) tonight. After scoring 36 points in its opener, South Delta sputtered on offense last week and gained only 196 yards in a 16-6 loss to HollandaleSimmons.
LHSAA Madison Parish at Wossman Madison Parish opens the 2010 season against Wossman, a team that went 2-7 last season, but thumped the Jaguars 64-0 in the 2009 season-opener. Ironically, Madison Parish’s last win came against Wossman in Week 7 of the 2008 season. Madison has lost 12 straight games since then, and 38 of 43 overall since starting the 2005 season 3-1.
Hanson holds Mets in check, earns win ATLANTA (AP) — Tommy Hanson knew exactly how long it had been since his last win. “July 3,” he said without a bit of hesitation. He doesn’t have to remember that date anymore. Hanson finally got some run support and won for the first time in nearly two months, allowing just one hit in seven shutout innings to lead the Atlanta Braves to their fifth straight win, 4-1 over the New York Mets on Wednesday night. “At the end of the day, it’s always fun to see the ‘W’ beside your name,” Hanson said. “But the most important thing is the team winning, especially at this point in the season.” Omar Infante and Jason Heyward combined for seven hits at the top of the Braves’ order, Martin Prado drove in two runs with a first-inning double and it could have been worse for the Mets if they hadn’t thrown out two Atlanta runners at the plate. The Braves maintained a three-game lead in the NL East over Philadelphia, which beat the Los Angeles Dodg-

mlb ers 5-1. “Everyone feels happy where we’re at,” Hanson said. “If we keep doing what we’re doing,
we should have a lot of fun down the stretch.” Hanson (9-10) had gone 0-5 over his previous 10 starts, largely because the Braves’ offense always seemed to
struggle when the righthander was on the mound. He allowed just 11 earned runs over eight of those appearances — and didn’t get a win in any of them. The frustrating stretch seemed to get to Hanson in his last start, when he gave up back-to-back homers to start the game, four homers in all and took a 7-1 loss against Florida. But he was in total command against New York, working off his 90-plus-mph fastball to stay ahead in the count and set up his breaking pitches. David Wright’s one-out double in the fourth was the lone hit surrendered by the Atlanta starter. “When I’m commanding my fastball, that’s when I’m good,” Hanson said. New York’s other hit was pinch-hitter Luiz Hernandez’s two-out, run-scoring single off Jonny Venters in the eighth. Billy Wagner worked a perfect ninth for his 31st save. Heyward had twice as many hits as the Mets, putting up the third four-hit game of his rookie season — each time going the opposite way to left.
guys how to play the game the right way. He’s a great senior for our younger guys to look up to.” But the best part might be yet to come. The Eagles switched from an I-formation to a spread offense and now have four big-play wide receivers — Jake Boyd, Montana McDaniel and Jeff Hearn in addition to Marshall — to spread the field. It means that defenses will be forced to pick their poison with single coverage. Ignore one or two at your peril. “When we decided to run the spread, it was because of guys like him, Montana, Jake Boyd, that we had the speed to do it with,” Bourne said. “He’s one of our centerpieces. It’s fun to call plays and see who makes the next big play on this team.” Marshall arrived in July after his mother’s job with Batesville Casket Company moved her to the area. They looked around at schools and communities before deciding on Vicksburg and Porters Chapel. He started in 7-on-7 camps and quickly opened some eyes, both in the community and in the recruiting ranks. “He (Weaver) called me a couple of times telling me about the school,” Marshall said of his coach. “I felt he was a man of his word. Who wouldn’t want to play for
somebody like that?” Southern Miss was the first college suitor, but Louisiana Tech and Mississippi State started recruiting him heavily. Marshall is happy to play either wideout or cornerback, but he prefers to have the ball in his hands. He doesn’t lack for confidence. “I’m not meaning this to be disrespectful, but I believe that no one in this state can stop me,” Marshall said. “When I’m doing me, I’m unstoppable. I’ll play anything in college. If there are spots open at DB, I’ll take that. If there are spots at wide receiver, I’ll take that. Whatever gets me on the field quicker. But I’m definitely more comfortable at wide receiver. I like working with the ball in my hands.” As for his decision on a school, Marshall understands the process and he’s willing to see it out until year’s end. Until then, Weaver will field more calls from other college coaches asking about him. “I’ll wait until the end of the year,” Marshall said. “It is kind of nerve-racking and overwhelming at the same time, but I’ll wait until the end of the year, focus on this season and hopefully get a ring.”
Chico Continued from Page B1. They yielded 261 yards per contest through the air last season and 21 touchdown passes. That didn’t sit too well with Hunter. “We’ve got to step up on defense,” Hunter said. “We’d like to score a little more, get some turnovers.” Another role Hunter will be playing is as a gunner (outside man) on punt coverage. The gunners are the ones who usually arrive at the punt returner first, giving Hunter a chance to land one of his infamously hard hits. “Special teams is such a big part of the game,” Hunter said. “I love to attack and that’s something you can definitely do on special teams. I’m thinking killshot, knockout, every play.” The past two years haven’t sat well with Hunter and his teammates. The expectation level in the locker room is sky-high and Hunter hopes to go out on top with a conference championship and
possibly more. “That’d be a dream,” Hunter said. “We’ve definitely got the talent to do it. I can’t say what bowl we’ll go to, but I’m expecting big things out of the defense and the whole Southern Miss program. From the first team meeting, that’s what Coach Fedora has been stressing to us: conference championship.” As for Hunter’s legacy, he is excited about getting his degree after having a career that was almost cut short before it began thanks to a torn ACL while at Warren Central. “My high point was just getting the opportunity to play college football,” Hunter said. “I had some injuries and in high school, I had a few problems. But Southern Miss stuck with me. The thing that I got from here, that no one can take from me, is in December, I graduate. If I don’t play another snap, I’ll have my degree.”
Roddick falls at Open TENNIS
NEW YORK (AP) — Andy Roddick found it infuriating that a lineswoman who called him for a foot fault was wrong about which of his shoes touched the line. The 2003 U.S. Open champion had much bigger problems Wednesday night at Flushing Meadows, though, and bowed out in the second round with a 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 7-6 (4) loss to 44th-ranked Janko
Tipsarevic of Serbia, whose go-for-broke style paid off with 66 winners. “He played very high-risk and executed for four sets,” said the ninth-seeded Roddick, whose exit leaves Roger Federer as the only past champion in the men’s field.

Cage suit against manager dismissed Court records show a lawsuit in which Nicolas Cage accused a former business manager of mismanagement has been dismissed. A counterclaim by the manager, Samuel J. Levin, also was dismissed. The 46-year-old Cage sued Levin for $20 million in October, claiming the accountant led him on a path to financial ruin. Levin countersued for unpaid fees and alleged the actor didn’t listen to his advice. Court records indicate both cases were dismissed Monday. No other details were availNicolas Cage able. Phone messages left for Cage’s attorney Marty Singer and Levin’s attorney Joseph Schleimer were not immediately returned Wednesday. The dismissal was first reported Wednesday by celebrity website TMZ.
‘Transformers 3’ extra injured An extra at a “Transformers 3” production site was seriously injured during the filming of a stunt, Indiana State Police said. Authorities said the “Transformers 3” crew was filming late Wednesday in the Chicago suburb of Hammond, Ind., using several vehicles and drivers. Police said something went wrong and an object went through the windshield of a car, hitting the driver. In a statement, police said the vehicle kept going for a mile before stopping. Police did not release the driver’s name. The person was airlifted to a hospital. “Transformers 3” crews have been filming in the Chicago area all summer.
Paste magazine to stop publication The music monthly Paste has printed its last magazine after struggling financially for more than a year. Editor-in-chief Josh Jackson said Wednesday that the publication based in suburban Atlanta will keep its popular website going but will no longer send print copies to its more than 200,000 subscribers. The entire staff of nine employees was cut. The three main managers — including Jackson — are staying on for now to run the website, Jackson said. Last year, the magazine asked readers to donate money to help it stay afloat, drawing thousands of dollars. The donations helped delay the inevitable, after advertising revenue dropped, Jackson said.

Some W.Va. schools remove swings Elementary school playgrounds in one West Virginia county are losing their swing sets. Swings are being removed from Cabell County schools in southern West Virginia in part because of lawsuits over injuries. Cabell County schools safety manager Tim Stewart said Wednesday that a lot of parents are accusing him of being unAmerican, but he said the cost of maintaining a safe surface is too expensive. Stewart said a lawsuit in the past year involved a youngster who broke his arm jumping off a swing like Superman. It was settled for $20,000. Other equipment such as monkey bars will remain. Stewart said the schools are able to maintain the proper protection underneath them.
Lambert, Lady Antebellum, Shelton top list NAS H V I L L E ( A P ) — Miranda Lambert made history Wednesday morning when she was nominated for nine CMA Awards, the most for a female country music artist. She’ll be celebrating with close friends Lady Antebellum and fiance Blake Shelton. Lady A earned the second most nominations with five and Shelton was next with four, tied with Zac Brown Band. The year 2010 is taking on fairly tale qualities for the fiery Texan, who won three Academy of Country Music Awards in March, got engaged a few months later and has much to look forward to the rest of the year. “I don’t think it gets better than this,” Lambert said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. “It’s been a dream and it’s not even over with. I’ll be sad when 2011 comes because this year has just been one blessing after another. It’s just incredible. I don’t know what it is about now that all this is coming to a head, but I don’t care. I’m just glad it is.” Lambert and close friend Dierks Bentley announced nominations in five categories Wednesday morning on “Good Morning America.” The first seven categories were announced Tuesday in Nashville. Lambert, Lady A, Zac Brown Band, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban were nominated for entertainer of the year, the Country Music Association’s top award. Should Lambert win entertainer of the year she’ll continue a girl-power trend at country music’s two top awards shows. Taylor Swift became just the third female winner of the CMA’s top award last year and Carrie Underwood made history in April as the first woman to win the ACM Awards’ entertainer of the year twice. Women also figure prominently in several CMA categories this year. “It’s definitely something that’s been needing to happen for a long time,” Lambert said. “I think it’s been turning slowly but it’s finally starting to show through with the girls

being really strong right now in country music.” Lambert, whose last album “Revolution” was widely hailed by her peers and critics, fell just short of Alan Jackson’s overall record of 10 nominations, set in 2002. Merle Haggard is the only other artist to receive nine or more nominations. She also earned nominations for female vocalist of the year, album of the year, single of the year for both “White Liar” and “The House That Built Me,” song of the year for “White Liar,” musical event for “Bad Angel” with Bentley and Jamey Johnson, and video of the year for both “White Liar” and “House.” Lady A continued to ride the success of “Need You Now,” the year’s top-selling country album. Along with the entertainer nod, Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott received nominations for vocal group of the year, for album of the year, single
of the year and music video of the year. Zac Brown Band also is up for vocal group of the year, new artist of the year and musical event for “Can’t You See” featuring Kid Rock. The Atlanta six-piece is the first act to be nominated for both entertainer and new artist in the same year since Ricky Skaggs in 1982. Shelton is up for male vocalist of the year, and his collaboration with Trace Adkins on “Hillbilly Bone” earned him nominations for single, music event and video of the year. That means Adkins also has three nominations. Lambert said she called Shelton shortly after reading the list of nominees. A storm knocked out his satellite reception, so he didn’t know he was up for so many awards. “I’m so excited for him I haven’t had time to be excited
for myself,” Lambert said. “This is a long time coming for him. He’s got four nominations, and male vocalist of the year is Keith one I feel like Urban he should’ve been nominated for every year and every awards show, and won, and he’s never even been nominated. He is one of the most amazing male vocalists out there and I’m just glad he finally got what he deserved for a long time.” Paisley moved into No. 3 on the CMA’s list of career nominations with three nods, including music video of the year and male vocalist, which he’s won three consecutive times. Paisley has been nominated every year since 2000 and has 52 career nods. Only George Strait (81, including two this year) and Alan Jackson (79) have more. Bentley also has three nominations with nods for male vocalist of the year, album of the year for “Up On The Ridge” and the “Bad Angel” collaboration. The CMA Awards show will be shown live on ABC on Nov. 10 in Nashville.
Rapper T.I., wife arrested on drug charges LOS ANGELES (AP) — Grammy-winning rapper T.I., who is still on probation after spending time behind bars on gun charges, was arrested along with his wife on drug charges after police smelled alleged marijuana coming from their car, authorities said. The Wednesday night arrests for possession of a controlled substance occurred in West Hollywood during a traffic stop, Los Angeles sheriff’s deputy Mark Pope told The Associated Press. “Deputies smelled a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle,” the department said. “A narcotics investigation ensued” that resulted in the arrests. The department’s media office said it didn’t yet have details on which specific drug the possession charge concerned. The arrests reflect that
T.I. last week of socialite Paris Hilton, who is being investigated for felony cocaine possession after a motorcycle officer smelled pot wafting from her car. The Atlanta-based T.I., 29, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., and Cottle, a 36-year-old singer who sang with the 1990s group Xscape and has recently been the star of the BET reality series “The Tiny & Toya Show,”

were booked at the West Hollywood sheriff’s station. Bail was set at $10,000 each. Pope said today that he didn’t know if they were still being held. T.I.’s publicist declined to comment. T.I., the multiplatinum hitmaker who has a key role in the current top box office movie “Takers,” served seven months in an Arkansas federal prison and three months in a Georgia halfway house on federal weapons charges and was released in March. He is on three years’ probation. Since that case, T.I., who had spent time behind bars for drug offenses before, vowed to live a better life. He spoke to kids about the dangers of drugs and guns, and former United Nations Ambassador Andrew Young was one of his supporters. As he prepared for his most recent sentence, he starred in the MTV reality show “T.I.’s
Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go.” The father of five married Cottle in late July. “Takers,” a shoot ’em up about an armored truck robbery that goes bad, was released last week and topped the boxoffice chart. In a recent interview with The Associated Press, T.I. talked about living a more positive life. “Right now, it’s all about moving forward and just acknowledging the blessing that are here today. ... Just moving past the regrets of yesterday — the things that could’ve been done better,” T.I. said in a July interview. T.I., who is known as the “King of the South,” has emerged one of music’s most profitable stars over the last few years. He is working on a new album, “King Uncaged,” which may be released this year.

Son’s ‘no secrets’ policy irks confiding mother Dear Abby: My son “Clay” has been married seven years. There are times I like to discuss things of a personal nature with him having to do with our family, and I have asked him not to mention our talks with his wife. These discussions have nothing to do with her. The problem is whatever he tells her, she repeats to her whole family. I do not want our personal problems and other matters to be known by everyone. My other son has no trouble keeping our talks just between us, but Clay says he and his wife have “no secrets” from each other. Abby, is it OK to ask a married son or daughter not to divulge things to a spouse that have nothing to do with her or him? — Confidentially in St. Louis Dear Confidentially: It’s OK to ask; it’s also OK to say no. When Clay married his wife, she became part of your family. Now that you know your son keeps no secrets from his wife, and that she leaks like a sieve, the better

part of wisdom would be to stop confiding in him. Don’t you think? Dear Abby: As a therapist and regular reader, I was surprised and dismayed by your advice to “Hubby in Purrgatory” (June 30). Apparently, “Hubby” has grown annoyed with his wife’s preoccupation with her two cats. Whatever blocks to closeness have been created for this couple are not likely to be removed by his demanding affection and threatening infidelity — even in jest. (Re: your comment, “He may adopt a ‘kitten’ of his own.”) People turn to excessive engagement with animals because animals provide warmth in easy, reliable ways. Spouses would often do well to watch what animals give and offer
BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION If tomorrow is your birthday: There are strong indications that the year ahead will turn out to be a far more active one than you’ve experienced in some time. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Your path might start out with a few stumbling blocks, but don’t let them trip you up and make you prematurely throw in the towel. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — That opportunity to talk to someone essential to your plans might not come until midday, so don’t get discouraged early on. Keep the faith, and you’ll end up with what you want. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Although you might start out a bit down in the dumps, your upbeat spirit will grow as the day wears on, providing a lot of pizzazz. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Regardless of how your day starts, concentrate on achieving your major objectives. Conditions will improve with time. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — The quickest way to get over the blues is to have a good old-fashioned conversation with a few choice pals who always lighten your spirits. If you give them a call, they will come through. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Chances are there is something significant you want to change but have been reluctant to do so. Remove that spur from under your saddle, and gallop forward at full speed. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Individually, you and some friends may have little to offer; collectively, however, you could be a mighty force. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Be sure to take the plans you make with friends seriously, because your pals will take your commitment to them in earnest. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Your popularity could be ascending at this time, and both friends and family alike will make sure that you’re included in their plans. This could turn out to be a busy day for you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — If you need to borrow money or property, go to a family member or a close friend first. When money is involved, they are the ones who are more likely to come through for you. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Enhance your thinking by talking about your ideas with some friends or colleagues who are original thinkers. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — A favor you did recently for another might be reciprocated if and when that person sees an opportunity to do so. Your pal is looking for a response that is equal to your generosity.
TWEEN 12 & 20
BY DR. ROBERT WALLACE • NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION Dr. Wallace: My mom’s boyfriend is an alcoholic. He doesn’t live with us, but he spends a lot of time here, and much of it is spent consuming booze. He’s not so bad when he’s not drinking, but that doesn’t happen too often. I keep telling my mother that we don’t need an unemployed alcoholic hanging around our house, but she says she plans to marry him as soon as I graduate from high school — which will be in about a year. In the meantime, all this has ruined the family life I once had with my mother. I shudder to think what her life will be like after she marries this guy. Mom works hard and makes a decent wage. This guy doesn’t work because he has some sort of disability that pays him $900 a month. After I graduate, I’m moving to Cleveland to live with my grandmother. I’ll look for work there and possibly go to college, if my grandparents can afford it. I might get a scholarship because my high school grade point average is above a 3.7. If my mother would stop seeing her boyfriend before I graduate, I’d continue to live with her. Without being a nag, what can I do to get her to realize this guy will make her life miserable as long as she’s with him? — Troubled, Mansfield, Ohio Troubled: Whoever said, “Love is blind” was on to something. Encourage your mother to get her boyfriend to stop drinking. A good start would be for him to join Alcoholic Anonymous. It would be very unwise for your mother to marry him while he’s still drinking. Continue to remind her of this and have trusted adults (ministers, counselors, relatives, friends) do the same. If possible, you and your mom should go into family counseling. Mom calls it love, but there might be a hidden reason why she wants a man around the house, which a family counselor might be able to uncover. Above all, keep loving and communicating with your mom. Showing nonjudgmental concern is always more effective than being a nag, which almost never brings about the desired result. • Dr. Robert Wallace writes for Copley News Service.

the same things — especially uncritical pleasure in each other’s company. At the least, you could have suggested “Hubby” open a dialogue with his wife about why she chooses the cats’ company and what he can do to be equally appealing. — Julie in Richmond, Va., Clinical Psychologist Dear Julie: I’m sorry you were dismayed. If you read “Hubby’s” letter again you will see that he tried “opening a dialogue” with his wife and got nowhere. She has infantilized the cats, which she calls her “babies,” to assuage her anxiety after her sons moved out. While some readers assumed I was “advising” the husband to “adopt a ‘kitten’ of his own,” what I was trying to convey was that when a spouse (of either sex, by the way) feels ignored, unappreciated, unloved or unimportant, it is not uncommon for him or her to seek validation elsewhere. In other words, I called it as I saw it. Dear Abby: I am a 16-year-
old girl. I recently had open heart surgery and my doctor did a really bad job at the “stitching up.” My scar is oversized and crooked. People look at me all the time and ask me about it. I hate wearing certain shirts because of it. Why can’t people realize this scar saved my life and stop staring at it? Please, I need some advice. — Scarred in Minnesota Dear Scarred: People look at your scar because it is different. They do not mean to stare or make you uncomfortable. A way to take control of the situation would be, when you see someone looking at your chest, to say, “I had open heart surgery. This scar saved my life.” If you are asked about it, answer any questions honestly. That will take the mystery out of it — and word will get around.

Obese woman might have polycystic ovarian syndrome Dear Dr. Gott: My 38-year-old granddaughter is convinced that because she has polycystic ovarian syndrome, she cannot lose weight. She is grossly overweight, and I am concerned about her future. She sees an endocrinologist about once a year, and takes thyroid medication and niacin for cholesterol. Can she be helped? Thank you for your consideration of this serious problem. Dear Reader: PCOS is a hormonal disorder that commonly begins when a female begins menstruation; however, it can develop later in life. Obesity presents in nearly half of all patients with PCOS and is often the initial complaint. Abnormalities in the menstrual cycle, infertility, pre or type II diabetes and the presence of polycystic ovaries diagnosed through ultrasound are but a few of the other symptoms. It should be noted, however, that having polycystic ovaries is not a firm indication of PCOS. There is no specific testing for diagnosis. Rather, it is one of exclusion, meaning that a physician will rule out a number of related possibilities prior to deciding on PCOS. The disorder makes other conditions, such as type II diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea, more likely to occur. Only you and your granddaughter can determine the sequence of events. When was she diagnosed? Could the PCOS be a result of her obesity? Is that issue under control? I cannot tie in high-cholesterol levels with her excess weight; however, thyroid disorders are often linked with obesity, elevated cholesterol and menstruation abnormalities. There is help and hope that focuses primarily on her major symptoms. She should exercise and become involved with a regular weight-control program. Diet modification appears essential. There is some initial evidence of success on a low-carbohydrate diet without discrimination between carbs on either end of the glycemic index. Her caloric intake should be reduced. She should avoid simple carbohydrates such as soda, sugary drinks, doughnuts, cakes and pastries. Any

carb intake might focus on choices high in fiber, such as brown rice, whole-grain breads, fortified cereals and beans.
